THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2013 • MERRITT NEWSPAPERS

LEST WE FORGET Hundreds gathered at the Merritt Civic Centre and cenotaph on Monday for the annual November 11 Remembrance Day ceremonies honouring those who have lost their lives in war and peacekeeping duties, and those who have served to defend their country. Royal Canadian Legion members (from left) Bob Huston, Ralph Hack, Nick Tollerton, Darcy Schmidt, Kevin Norman, Larry Hintz, Stewart Pratt and piper Ross Lamont take part in the indoor service. In addition to many members of the general public, the ceremonies on Monday morning were attended by retired service veterans and current members of the Canadian Armed Forces, along with representatives of the local army and navy cadets, RCMP, fire and ambulance departments, guides and scouts and Merritt Centennials hockey team.

Local Sensible BC canvassers hit the streets By Michael Potestio THE HERALD

reporter@merrittherald.com

Local canvassers for the Sensible BC campaign to decriminalize possession of marijuana have been pounding the pavement as the deadline to collect signatures looms. As of Nov. 8, the local Sensible BC campaign had collected about 900 signatures from people in Merritt. There are 35 registered canvassers looking for people to sign the petition in the area. As of Nov. 13, canvassers

in Fraser-Nicola had collected about 1,200 signatures. According to Elections BC, there were 22,187 registered voters in Fraser-Nicola in May of this year. The campaign hit a bump when many of the signatures were rejected by Elections BC, head organizer for Fraser-Nicola Leo Bice said. “A large portion of the numbers we did have weren’t actually eligible for Elections BC,” Bice said. Some of the signatures belonged to people who are not registered voters, while

others improperly filled out the information required on their forms, Bice said. Many of the signatures gathered across the FraserNicola riding had to be discarded as a result. “It was quite disappointing,” Bice said, noting a few weeks ago organizers had counted about 700 signatures and afterwards came back with about 340. Bice said most of the issues came from the Princeton area. Bice said they need about 3,000 eligible signatures in

Fraser-Nicola to meet the 10 per cent requirement. Another issue they’ve had is not getting feedback from Sensible BC very quickly after signing up local canvassers, Bice said. Two Princeton-based canvassers are still waiting to hear back from head campaign organizers in Vancouver, three weeks after they sent their paperwork in. The initiative in Merritt has been heavily focused on going door to door to get Merrittonians’ endorsements, but canvassers also had a table location set up

outside Davis Leathers for a few weeks at the start, Sensible BC second contact for the Fraser-Nicola riding Ryan Chypyha said. The Merritt canvassers have been going to every area of town to seek out signatures, Chypyha said. “We’ve been all over the place,” Chypyha said, noting canvassers have manned a table at Centennials games as well. Chypyha said the Sensible BC canvassers in Merritt represent a wide variety of people, noting canvassers range from

people in their 20s and 30s to the elderly. “It’s totally varied, and because this is kind of pointed toward the taxpayer – why are we spending all this money enforcing the current cannabis laws – it’s attracting a lot of people,” Chypyha said. “Doctors and teachers and respectable people in the community are signing this for that reason because it’s not like, ‘Oh, I just want to smoke pot,’ it’s a little bit more than that,” Chypyha said.

Deadline looming for pot petition From Page 1 Chypyha also said the reaction to the petition from the people of Merritt has been quite positive and non-confrontational. “In front of the hockey arena or anywhere that we’ve been, no one’s asked us to leave, no one’s really been confrontational or anything, it’s actually been really good,” Chypyha said. He said canvassers go out each week seeking signatures. If Sensible BC receives signatures

from 10 per cent of the voting population in each riding it will trigger a referendum on decriminalizing marijuana possession in B.C. Canvassers across B.C.’s 85 electoral districts must collect 400,000 signatures – representing 10 per cent of the voting population – by Dec. 5. FraserNicola needs about 2,200 signatures to meet the provincial requirement. The goal of the campaign is to get the province to hold a referendum and look Sensible BC creator Dana Larsen’s Sensible Policing Act.

Derksen to defy genres at Merritt show

Find us on Facebook: facebook.com/ merrittherald

By Selena Randhawa SPECIAL TO THE HERALD

Weaving traditional Aboriginal beats with contemporary electronic sounds, Cris Derksen is not your average classically trained cellist. After working with the likes of international rap icon Kanye West and Canadian baroque pop singersongwriter Veda Hille, this internationally renowned artist will be gracing the NVIT stage tonight for the first time in Merritt. Originally from Northern Alberta, Derksen grew up with strong ties to her North Tall Cree reserve and Mennonite ancestry. These ties are evident in Derksen’s impressive repertoire of music. “I take sounds from all over and combine them. [My music] represents different experiences from my life and these representations are very important to my art,” Derksen said in a phone interview from Ontario, where she is currently on tour performing an original play that features music from her first album The Cusp. In 2011, The Cusp garnered critical acclaim and was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award. In the same year, Derksen received her first Aboriginal Music Award for Instrumental Album of THE REGION

the Year. Derksen has also been recognized by the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network as one of its rising stars and major publications, such as Vancouver’s Georgia Straight, have dubbed her as an ‘artist to watch.’ “My music has no real genre, to be honest,” Derksen said. “I would explain it as a mixture between popular and aboriginal sounds with a little hint of hip hop.” Her latest album The

Collapse features an eclectic mix of classically oriented beats with buoyant party jams, all backed by her signature cello sound. After attaining her bachelor of music in cello performance at UBC, Derksen went on to perform at various events around the world including SXSW in Texas and the MADE festival in Sweden. Locally, Derksen has been a fixture in the Canadian music scene and has played at the Aboriginal Music Awards and Junofest.

It was while performing in Vancouver that Derksen was asked to play in Merritt. “One of the presenters at an event I was at is a resident of Merritt and was excited to have me come out there and play. Of course I had to come out.” Tonight’s performance will be Derksen’s only B.C. stop as she is leaving for Montreal right after to continue her tour. Derksen’s accompaniment includes Joy Mullen

on drums and a hoop dancer to add a new dynamic to her performance. “I have some new songs that I want to play, and I have some new toys that I want to bring out,” Derksen said. Tickets for the show are available at Black’s Pharmacy, Mandolin’s Coffeehouse and the Baillie House, and are $22 for adults and $17 for seniors and students. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. at the NVIT theatre.

Open fires permitted Film showing Monday

Open fires in the Kamloops Fire Centre, which includes the Merritt Fire Zone, are now allowed by the province’s Wildfire Management Branch. The current weather conditions make it safe for private landowners, Wildfire Management Branch personnel and industry personnel to burn piles to reduce wildfire risk, the Fire Centre said in a press release. Several burning projects will continue until date-driven open burning restrictions come back into effect next spring. Burning is only permitted on days

when the venting index indicates good ventilation so smoke doesn’t get trapped in the burn area. Check bcairquality.ca to check the venting index. Anyone who wants to burn a category three fire must still obtain a burn registration number by calling 1-888797-1717. Category three fires include those in more than two piles less than two metres high and three metres wide; stubble or grass over an area of more than 0.2 hectares (2,000 square metres); any piles bigger than two metres high and three wide; and one or more windrows.

The Nicola Valley Film Society is showing its third film of the 2013-14 season Monday night. The Reluctant Fundamentalist, based on the 2007 novel of the same name, follows Changez, a young Pakistani man, as he tells an American journalist the story of his time chasing the American dream on Wall Street. Things take a sinister turn in this political thriller after the Twin Towers are attacked and a cultural divide begins to widen between Changez and his dreams, his girlfriend, and his life in New York. The international drama premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and Venice International Film Festival. The film starts at 7:30 p.m. in the NVIT lecture theatre on Nov. 18.

Merritt ACTIVITIES: Week of Nov. 4, 2013

Big summer for Baillie House The following is an excerpt from the City of Merritt regular council meeting agenda from Nov. 12, 2013. The months of July, August and September of 2013 were the busiest threemonth period in the history of the Visitor Information Booth at the Baillie House. A total of 8,075 visitors stopped at our site. Repeat visits and word of mouth advertising continue to contribute to the high number of visitors who stop at the Baillie property. Guests comment daily on the uniqueness of our site and the uniqueness of our warm welcome

from staff and volunteers. This summer, numerous people told our staff that there is nowhere like this facility. As a result, 2013 has been the busiest year that the VIB has experienced. The number of visitors in July 2013 increased by 26.2 per cent (566 visitors). August 2013 saw an increase of 10.9 per cent (330) visitors. However, the number of visitors in September decreased by 14.7 per cent (343 visitors). The weather for July and August was hot and dry virtually every day. The combination of the great holiday weather and our continued word

of mouth advertising likely contributed to the steady increase in visitors in July and August. Visitors tell our staff on a daily basis that their friends have told them that they have to stop at the Baillie House when they pass by Merritt on their summer holidays. The weather continues to be an important consideration when travellers think about leaving the highway

and coming to downtown Merritt. Six tour buses stopped at our site for a tour and to buy local products. The number of tour buses varies greatly from year to year and is unpredictable. The total number of visitor parties for the first three quarters of 2013 was 8,330 (an increase of 23 per cent over the same period for 2012).

Community conducting ground search for missing man By Michael Potestio THE HERALD

reporter@merrittherald.com

A group of concerned Merrittonians will be heading out to the Stump Lake Ranch in an effort to locate a Merritt man who went missing last month. The group will be meeting on Saturday at 10 a.m. at Tim Hortons and will head to the ranch where 44-year-old Dean Morrison was last seen. Tammy Caruso, a former colleague of Morrison’s when the pair worked at the Merritt News, is leading the initiative. Caruso said the idea to organize the search came about after someone suggested on a Facebook group that community members do a ground search. From that, Caruso started a public Facebook group titled Foot Search for Dean Morrison and as of Wednesday, 27 people had posted as attending the search. She said people have posted that they will be bringing people with them so they may likely have over 30 people in the search. “I think it’ll be a good turnout,” Caruso said. Caruso said she wants to help Morrison’s son find his father. Morrison’s 16-yearold son Paz will be one of those participating in the search and has worked out at the Stump Lake Ranch with his father, according to Caruso.

Caruso said she warned him of the possibility his father could be found deceased. She said Morrison’s son was adamant to take part in the search for his dad, adding that the boy’s mother is supportive of her son taking part in the search. The group plans to search in groups of no less than four, using walkie-talkies to communicate out at the site. Caruso said Stump Lake Ranch manager Dan Fremlin will participate and help co-ordinate the search as well. Caruso said she asked the RCMP for assistance, but Merritt police informed her they will not be working in conjunction with this search party. “Our provincial search and rescue people have already done a thorough search at the Stump Lake Ranch area, and as such, at this time there’s no reason to do a second search unless there’s grounds to believe that Dean is or was in a certain geographic area,” Const. Ryan Dell told the Herald. Caruso said police told her if the group

finds anything to indicate Morrison was in that area, such as a piece of his clothing, it could prompt another police search. Police conducted a search of the Stump Lake area back on Oct. 31 where Morrison was last seen and there was no trace of him. Const. Tracy Dunsmore said the police have no issue with people conducting a private search as long as it doesn’t interfere with their investigation. Caruso’s search will be by foot only as quads will not be allowed on the ranch, she said. Participants will need to sign a liability release form as well, and those under 19 will need parental permission to participate. Caruso said she’s asking for input on the search from anyone who has search and rescue experience. Dunsmore told the Herald the RCMP has been following up on tips regarding Morrison but still do not have any new information on his whereabouts. Dunsmore said the police used quads in their ground search and searched the area by helicopter for several hours. They also searched all the residences on the lake, Dunsmore said. Search and rescue and Stump Lake ranch hands assisted in the search as well, Dunsmore said. If any new developments come from

Saturday’s search, they should be reported to RCMP, Dunsmore said. “The day he went missing, he was there and then he wasn’t. We don’t know if he wandered into the woods, if he hitchhiked, if he walked back to Merritt — we have no idea,” Dunsmore said. About a week passed between Morrison being reported missing and the last time he was known to have been seen, Dunsmore said. This past Saturday, one of Morrison’s daughters had her eighth birthday, Caruso said. She added that she couldn’t believe he wouldn’t contact her, though Morrison still hasn’t been heard from. Since Oct. 22, Morrison, a father of three, has not been in contact with or seen by his family members. Morrison’s mother wrote in a statement that on Oct. 22, her son was terminated from his contract painting position at Stump Lake Ranch because he was lethargic and looked unwell. According to the statement, Morrison’s vehicle wasn’t running properly, so a tow truck was called at 9:30 a.m. and arrived after 1 p.m. Morrison went missing some time between the tow truck being called and its arrival. By Oct. 28, Morrison’s family members had not had contact with him and he had not returned to his sister’s house, where he

HERALD OPINION

Untangling oil pipeline politics By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS tfletcher@blackpress.ca

VICTORIA – Reaction was swift and scattered after the “framework agreement” on new oil pipelines announced last week by B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford. First, here’s what it doesn’t mean. “B.C. blinked,” according to one Toronto commentator, based on the popular notion that B.C. gave up its claim to a share of Alberta’s resource royalties from heavy oil. Clark never made such a claim, so it would be difficult to give it up. Her often-repeated condition of a “fair share” of revenues from any new oil pipelines is purposely vague, but after repeated protests from Alberta, Clark clarified as far back as last June that provincial royalties are not on the table. There is no constitutional way to make such a demand, a point Redford has made several times. NDP leader Adrian Dix and the usual chorus of professional protesters claimed that Clark flip-flopped, opposing the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal before the election and then embracing it once she was re-elected. This is also inaccurate. Clark’s five conditions were set out before the May election, demanding approval by a federal environmental review, “worldleading” spill prevention and response capability on land and at sea, meeting legal requirements to consult and share benefits with aboriginal communities, and the undefined “fair share” for B.C. Clark said numerous times during the campaign that the conditions have not been met, and made pessimistic noises about Northern Gateway, but she very carefully did not campaign against it.

On pedestrians, pot and predator dogs

Emily Wessel Merritt MUSINGS In the days following my rant about pedestrian safety and common sense on the Nov. 5 version of this page, I experienced a different type of pedestrian-caused aggravation. Looking back, I can’t believe I forgot to mention it in my other column as this is not the first time it’s annoyed me, although this is the first time it could’ve seriously

hurt me or someone else. Here’s what happened: I was driving down Quilchena between Voght and Garcia when a person flung open the door to his huge truck that was parked on the side of the road just a few seconds before my car was right there next to his. In order to avoid squashing this man between my bumper and his door, I had to swerve over the centre line. Luckily, the other huge truck in the situation that was driving in the oncoming lane had room to move aside so we didn’t have a head-on collision. If there is a car approaching — and it’s not like I was blowing down the street, I was well under the speed limit

because I am aware people do this on Quilchena all the time — a person does not have time to open the door. There was no time and even less room for him to do such a clueless thing. Sadly, it’s not an unusual circumstance; I see people get in or out of their parked vehicles all the time when cars are moving on that stretch of road. The plain fact is there is room for two vehicles moving in opposite directions and a vehicle parked on either side. Nowhere in that equation is a car door, adding another three or more feet to the space that the parked car needs. He could’ve waited 10 seconds for the light

to change and for cars to stop moving along that side of the road and then got into the vehicle. It is not hard to figure out, it just takes some common sense and consideration. I bet it still hurts to get smucked by a car doing 30 kilometres an hour. Why bother with the risk? While I’m ranting... Something else I’ve noticed that baffles me about some people is their brazen use of marijuana. If you’re smoking weed, yes, even in the privacy of your own home, there is a super high chance (no pun intended) that it’s still illegal. People can smell it. It just wafts out and it’s not an intoxicatingly delicious aroma to everybody. It just

surprises me that some people are so bold as to let the odour waft around the neighbourhood like it’s incense. Maybe these people are a little too lax when it comes to their form of relaxation. Wait, was that a wolf ? In light of the wolf awareness that’s everywhere following a close encounter between the wild dogs and a forestry worker in the Merritt area, I read things that were very similar to what I thought when I saw a wolf last winter. I was driving on the Connector and saw a fluffy grey dog running along the right shoulder.

YOUR OPINION Five conditions of oil agreement yet to be met From Page 6 The B.C. Liberal platform also endorsed a Kitimat-area oil refinery proposed by Black Press owner David Black, and Clark repeatedly referred to that sort of industrial expansion as one of the potential “fair share” components for B.C. The B.C. Liberal government made its opposition to Northern Gateway “as currently proposed” official on May 31, two weeks after the election, in its final submission to the federal review panel. If Clark had wanted to jump on the antipipeline bandwagon for political gain, that move could have been made earlier. NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said the B.C. government has taken the position that more oil will reach the West Coast, by rail if not by pipeline. I’m not sure

if or when that claim was made, but it’s true that rail shipments are already permitted. Here’s what Redford and Clark agreed on. Redford accepts B.C.’s five conditions, provincial royalties excluded, and Clark endorsed Redford’s proposed “Canadian Energy Strategy,” which B.C. rejected last year. A draft of the strategy released last summer contains no specifics on how it would facilitate a pipeline project from Alberta to B.C. It talks about developing Canada’s energy reserves and at the same time somehow reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promises a final version next spring. Oh, and Quebec refuses to participate. Ottawa has sole jurisdiction over interprovincial projects such as Northern Gateway and the proposal by Kinder Morgan

Canada to expand the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby and refineries in Washington. If there is to be some extra revenue for B.C. from oil traffic, it could theoretically take the form of a toll on pipelines. Redford pointed out the problem with that idea in her speech to an energy forum in Vancouver last week. She noted that 42 per cent of B.C. natural gas is piped through Alberta to markets. If B.C. can toll Alberta oil, the same could be done with B.C. gas. None of B.C.’s five conditions has yet been met. Legally, they don’t have to be, except for the one about accommodating aboriginal title. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com Twitter:@tomfletcherbc

Wolves not as big as expected From Page 6 It seemed to be running quite quickly, although I was moving a lot quicker and passed it in a second. I didn’t get a really good look at it, just the impression it gave me in passing of a grey dog with a bushy tail and a seriously mean expression. I thought maybe it was an escaped husky-type dog that was lost in the middle of nowhere. I definitely did not think it would be a wolf, and to me, it didn’t seem big enough to be one. It wasn’t until a few months later, when I saw a coyote and how

small it was by comparison, that I realized it was most likely a wolf. Then I read the forestry worker’s account of her terrifying interaction with a pack of wolves, and one thing stood out that paralleled what I’d thought at the beginning: I didn’t think it was big enough to be a wolf. Turns out, they are not as large as you might expect; the average wolf stands about 32 inches from foot to shoulder and weighs in at about 75 pounds. In other words, a wolf might be no bigger than a big yellow lab. Let’s just hope wolves aren’t the new bobcats.

Fundraiser beneficiaries say their thanks Local couple to be kidney donor and recipient this winter Dear Editor, A little over a week ago, my husband I were the incredulous beneficiaries of the most overwhelmingly successful fundraiser we have ever seen. We are both participants in kidney surgery this winter: donor and recipient. Our heartfelt thanks go to Gerry and Corena, who think big, have incredible energy and devoted hours and hours to planning, phoning, collecting donations, attending meetings, and generally masterminding this event, all on the sly after spending long, chilly days in the saddle and tending a trucking business as well. Many more thanks for the outpouring of donations from local businesses and those afar; from friends, neighbours, family, coworkers and fellow ranchers in the form of stock items, hay, dirt, cash and services. All were given with unstinting generosity. One particular example was a calf donated by the Gormleys, bought and re-donated in turn by Jim Gardner, Mark Canard and B.C. Livestock before going to its final owner. Holy smokes and tremendous thanks to you all! A marvellous dinner was provided by the crew under Elaine, with more friends contributing hours of preparation before and during the event, along with Jerry, who did a wonderful job with the meat. The auctioneers, Gordon and Fred, did an outstanding job of

Veterans fighting for benefits By Emily Wessel THE HERALD

newsroom@merrittherald.com

For some veterans of the Afghanistan war, the fight isn’t over. Six Canadian soldiers who served in Afghanistan are suing the federal government for benefits and say the Veterans Charter and the changes it made for veterans’ compensation violates the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The federal government appealed the lawsuit, saying it had no special obligations to soldiers. However, a B.C. Supreme Court judge dismissed the appeal last month and the lawsuit is going ahead. The Veterans Charter, which came into effect in 2006, has been at the centre of much controversy since Canadian soldiers returned from Afghanistan. The new charter replaced the lifetime disability pension for disabled soldiers with lump-sum payments. Veterans argue the new one-time payment system offers only a percentage of what those same soldiers would’ve earned under the old charter’s pension plan. One of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit received a lump-sum payment of $260,000 after he lost both his legs above

the knee and a ruptured eardrum, among other injuries. He also has post-traumatic stress disorder and depressive disorder. In a report released in October, Canada’s veterans ombudsman stated this new system penalizes hundreds of wounded soldiers who don’t have pensions when they turn 65. The report found the most urgent issues that need to be fixed with the charter relate to financial support provided to permanently incapacitated veterans who are financially vulnerable. Veterans Affairs Canada reports 1,428 veterans of the 76,446 the department assessed are totally and permanently incapacitated. Of those, about 400 aren’t receiving benefits they are eligible for by definition under the charter, and who have very little to no Canadian Forces pensions. The report found almost 90 per cent of the permanent impairment allowance recipients were awarded it at the lowest grade level, which was likely to

total about $5,000 per month per veteran. It was unclear why slightly over half of the totally incapacitated veterans were ineligible for the allowance. The report calls the earnings loss benefit to support veterans transitioning from military to civilian careers insufficient, and recommends raising the lump sum payment for the disability award to $350,000 which is comparable to bring it in line with the maximum for pain and suffering caused by injury that’s awarded in Canadian courts. Non-economic compensation for pain and suffering needs to at least match what Canadian courts provide, the report states. Merritt resident Bill Mikkelsen spent eight months on a tour of duty in Afghanistan. He returned in 2010 and isn’t quite a veteran as he’s still with the reserves, but he’s aware of the problems some other soldiers who’ve returned are facing, he said. “It’s a two-tiered system: before the Veterans Charter and after,” he said, noting

his opinions are personal and don’t reflect the Canadian Forces. Mikkelsen said the actual amount of money given to these soldiers doesn’t seem fair either. “Canada hadn’t had a new crop of veterans since Korea. All of a sudden, we had people going to Bosnia, the Balkans, Rwanda, Somalia, Afghanistan, things like that. Now you have this mass amount of veterans who aren’t going to be treated the same as the ones who did the same type of job in the past.” Mikkelsen said he understands the government’s position in giving soldiers lumpsum payments, but those payments don’t necessarily help those returning from serving overseas in the long run. For those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression or physical disabilities, he said, investing the money wisely while adjusting to civilian life and pursuing a new career after the military are not likely priorities. “Whether it’s peacekeeping, humanitarian or war fighting, they need the ability to know and to say, ‘I’ve gone and done this job, and I’m confident that I’ll be taken care of.’

NOW SCHEDULING GUTTER CLEANOUT

Valley voices on Veterans Charter “Even as a reservist, when I came back, I had to take that time to reintegrate myself with the family, to go back and search for employment, and to put myself back into a normal frame of mind where I wasn’t in a theatre of operations. That takes some time, regardless of who you are.” Mikkelsen said he thinks the government does intend to support Canada’s veterans, but the 2006 charter is misguided and can be improved upon. “It’s better than a lot of countries have, but I think we’ve taken a step back in the care of our veterans as a whole. There are a lot of young soldiers out there who have gone and done these things and are living with the issues and being shorted.” He said while the financial aspect of veteran support seems to be the top concern for Ottawa, it is only a piece of the puzzle for veterans. “I’d venture to guess 99 per cent of soldiers who do this job don’t go and do it in search of money or riches or the chance of getting a lifetime pension — that’s not what they do it for. They do it because that’s their job, for one, and two, they go to support each other.” First Nations Veterans of Canada President Percy Joe said the charter leaves a lot to be desired. “If you’re ordered to go into battle, you don’t question it because you assume someone’s there to look after you or your family,” Joe said. “It’s really a big disappointment that [the Crown] would order them into harm’s way and then not take care of them if they come back maimed or they can’t transition back into the civilian life.” Although the Veterans Charter doesn’t directly affect Joe, whose service includes the Cold War, he said

‘‘

‘These people have served, and we want to make sure that we show respect and serve them back.’ — OKANAGAN-COQUIHALLA MP DAN ALBAS

it’s important for veterans to band together. “For a lot of us veterans, whether the new charter affects us or not, we’re standing in solidarity with those who need it,” he said. As for the legal battle playing out between the six wounded soldiers and Ottawa, Joe said veterans are “just wondering why. “We thought the war was somewhere else; it’s actually happening in Canada,” he said. Misinformation about charter Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas said while he’s heard concerns about the pay structure being unfair, it’s more complicated than the lump-sum issue. “One of the criticisms I’ve heard from people is the lump sum payment isn’t enough. Well, how do you value

an arm, first of all?” he said. Albas said the charter was passed by a minority government, but the Conservatives have since changed the offer of a lump sum to a choice between a onetime payment or having that payment meted out over a period of time. Albas said he has worked with veterans of all ages, including those returning from recent deployment and those to whom the charter applies. He said people with questions about the process to access benefits should call their members of Parliament, who can help guide them through various processes or explain which benefits can help them. “What I find most difficult to deal with is I get lots of people who say anecdotally, they’ve heard of people who

are not getting what they deserve. That’s really where the MP comes in. The member of Parliament can help assist to make sure they’re getting everything that’s owed under the law to them and to make sure that’s done with dignity.” Albas listed the permanent impairment allowance and permanent impairment supplement as two areas of the charter that can help with earnings loss when a person can no longer work because of injuries sustained in service. He said the focus is on recuperation, and the government has opened eight mental health centres and 26 special recuperation centres for veterans since 2006, and said the government is reallocating any funds cut from veteran programs into other areas of veteran services. “We know, from people who’ve come back from Afghanistan, many of them have different needs than traditional veterans,” Albas said. “These people have served, and we want to make sure that we show respect and serve them back,” Albas said.

God

the Word, the World

By Herman Kneller

We will look this week at what is going on in the sanctuary in Heaven and what a busy place it is. While they look at the records of those who have passed on, new ones are coming in. All who have passed away are peacefully sleeping in their graves, but at the same time, the message of Jesus’ coming is rapidly spreading. Because of the message from God, through Ellen White, the church has built big hospitals in various parts of the world where they help heal the sick, teach them about Jesus, and how to look after themselves. These hospitals are also training centers for other health providers. In other places, smaller hospitals are built where the people learn what Jesus was like as He helped people. Then there is another organization called ADRA where the church helps

the poor; sometimes buying a pregnant cow, and the calf is given to another family, and so on. In some cases, they help and teach people how to have bees generate income. Water is a very real need as well. In some places ADRA drills wells to get good, clean water, which relieves the women of their burden of carrying water on their heads for miles, to provide it for their families. People hear about Jesus by seeing how he helps people. Then there is Adventist World Radio that broadcasts the message of a living, loving Saviour to people who live where live messages are not allowed. The prophet, Daniel, said that at the time of the end, knowledge would be increased. We see how that has worked in the field of communication. But, there are other important things going on that we will look at next week. Have a good week!

Restitution ordered for torn teepees The Merritt Desert Inn will be getting some restitution from an act of vandalism back in June that left the teepees outside the establishment torn. Judge Stella Frame sentenced Saxe Mitchell to a conditional discharge and nine-month probation order, which will see him pay a restitution of $250 along with a victim surcharge fee of $100. He will also issue an apology to the Desert Inn for his role in the damages as he pled guilty to a charge of mischief under $5,000 at the Merritt courthouse on Oct. 29. The 19-year-old from Gabriola Island is also required complete 20 hours of community work within the next nine months. Another condition of the probation is he cannot consume alcohol or drugs aside from those prescribed by a physician. On June 8, police responded to a call of a fight near 2075 Mamette Ave. at 1:30 p.m., which lead to Mitchell’s arrest. Two witnesses reportedly saw

Mitchell along with some other individuals vandalizing the teepees outside the Merritt Desert Inn that night, and he was subsequently apprehended by the two witnesses. Defence lawyer Cliff Thorstenson said Mitchell was intoxicated at the time and had no idea what came over him. Thorstenson said Mitchell was prepared to issue an apology and pay for the damages. He also said his client was prepared to take responsibility, but pointed out there were other people involved in the vandalism and Mitchell alone did not tear the teepees. Week in jail for thefts In court on Oct. 29, a woman was sentenced to a week in jail after she pled guilty to a charge of theft under $5,000. On Oct. 17, Belle-Ann Stump stole some DVDs from Coopers Foods in Merritt with the intention of reselling them, her First Nations support worker stated in court.

DAVE OF ALL TRADES! Licensed Home Renovator

She also stated that Stump has no income and has found work to be scarce. The support worker said Stump is reliant on her common-law spouse to pay their bills. Stump had been convicted of theft under $5,000 nine days prior, on Oct. 8. The defence recommended a conditional sentence order in lieu of jail time as requested by the Crown because jail would interfere with Stump’s schooling. Judge Stella Frame stated the problem with a conditional sentence was that Stump was currently under two probation orders when this latest offence was committed. Frame said there isn’t much of difference between probation and a conditional sentence except for the fact that if a conditional sentence is breached, the convicted party would serve the remainder of the sentence in jail. The judge also said the probation orders do not seem to be a deterrent and sentenced Stump to serve jail time along with a $100 victim surcharge.

YOUR LAWYER MAKES THE DIFFERENCE…

Those who pick up the 2014 Nicola Valley Museum and Archives calendar are headed for a trip down memory lane. This year’s theme is “Faces of Merritt” and it features photographs of well-known Merrittonians from days past. On the cover is a man many in Merritt will recognize. Paul Desnoyer, or “Nature Boy” as he was referred to, graces this year’s cover — shirtless and with no shoes, just as one might remember. Museum manager Barb Watson and assistant manager Jo Atkinson told the Herald each year, their summer student creates the calendar and picks its theme. Past themes have included pioneers, industries, then and now, and war veterans. Born and raised Merrittonian Tejinder Cheema was the museum’s summer student this year and was responsible for putting the calender together. She said she chose her theme because people are likely to remember the Merrittonians in the photos. “I chose to do faces of Merritt

MA

because a lot of those faces are still around town and if they aren’t, their families are still in town,” Cheema said. She said she chose Paul “Nature Boy” Desnoyer for the cover because she was fascinated with the way he lived. Desnoyer was known for, among other things, walking everywhere and sleeping outdoors. Cheema attends the University of British Columbia Okanagan and has worked at her hometown museum for the past two summers. She said she decided to work at the museum because she had been working in the fast food industry and wanted to try something different. “And I thought, ‘Hey, why not work at the museum’ because being born and raised in Merritt, I didn’t know much about Merritt’s history until I got a job there,” she said. Cheema said the most interesting thing she learned during her time working at the museum was Nature Boy.

Local history Today’s decisions could cost tomorrow highlight of calendar By David Brown

HERALD COLUMNIST david.brown@investorsgroup.com

From Page 10 “I actually found out that [at] Rotary Park, the fountain actually has a plaque on the bottom of it for Nature Boy, and so that was neat because I’d never noticed the plaque there,” Cheema said. Along with the cover photo of Desnoyer, the 2014 calendar has facts about Merritt and each month has more than a single photo with it. Most of the pictures are from the first half of the 20th century, and the date the pictures were taken don’t necessarily correspond to the month page they appear on. Cheema said each month has multiple photos covering a specific category, such as military or sports. The calendars cost $5 and proceed benefit the promotion of the museum.

Every day, Canadians are faced with spend versus save decisions that will have an eventual impact on their future financial life and the quality of their retirement years. Here’s the dilemma in a nutshell: “I know I should save for my retirement but that new big screen LED TV is on sale for a great price and it would be a terrific upgrade for our family room.” Sure, it’s difficult to think about a distant future plan (something intangible that is way down the road) when you can get something you want today. This is why many people don’t set realistic goals. But, in this case, the solution seems obvious: stay with the perfectly serviceable TV you’ve already paid for and put the money you would have spent on the new one into a retirement fund (or some

other investment). Simple, right? But there’s much more to effective financial planning than investing in investments held within an RRSP or other savings vehicle. While it is undeniably true that the earlier you start saving, the better – especially within a tax-reducing, tax-sheltered RRSP where the magic of compounding will enhance your investment growth over time – the first thing you need to know is what you are saving for. In other words, you can’t measure a future need without knowing what that need will be. So start by carefully defining your objectives – some are straightforward, such as your desire to buy a larger home at some future date. Others require much more thought, such as looking at your retirement from every angle and defining the level and duration of finances you will eventually need to achieve your

dreams. Once you’ve made your calculations, it’s time to decide on how and how much you should invest to reach your objectives. And now things become even more complex: What happens if the amount you think is adequate gets eaten up by an inflation level that escalates some time in the future? What if your choices of investments do not provide the levels of returns you will one day need – because the returns have been reduced by market volatility or an unexpected economic downturn? What if your income – and thus, your ability to save – is affected by ill health, a workplace accident, a sudden unexpected expense, or even job loss? Don’t be deterred – there are answers to all these questions, ranging from an effective investment diversification

strategy to insurance coverages that will protect you, your family, your income and your estate. Yes, comprehensive financial planning is complex – and also vital. Make the right decisions today and for your future by talking to your professional advisor.

Know what you’re taking for pain DR. COLIN GAGE Spinal COLUMN Since so many of my patients are taking glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, I thought it would be a good idea to supply some general information on them. However, everyone’s health problems are different. Therefore, I strongly suggest you talk to your medical doctor or pharmacist before taking any prescription or non-prescription medication. With that in mind, here I go. What are glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate? Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are substances found naturally in the body. Glucosamine is a form of amino sugar that is believed to play a role in cartilage formation and repair. Chondroitin sulfate is part of a large protein molecule (proteoglycan) that gives cartilage elasticity. Both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are sold as dietary or nutritional supplements. They are extracted from animal tissue: glucosamine from crab, lobster or shrimp shells; and chondroitin sulfate from animal cartilage, such as tracheas or shark cartilage. What do they do? Past studies show

that some people with mild to moderate osteoarthritis (OA) taking either glucosamine or chondroitin sulfate reported pain relief at a level similar to that of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Some research indicates that the supplements might also slow cartilage damage in people with OA. Definitive results about the effects of these supplements are expected to continue to be studied. What do you look for? Because dietary supplements are unregulated, the quality and content may vary widely. Recommended doses should cost about $1 to $3 per day, but most insurance companies do not cover this cost. If you decide to take these supplements: Choose products sold by large, well-established companies that can be held accountable. Read the product labels carefully to make sure the ingredient lists make sense to you. If you have trouble, ask your pharmacists for help. Be sure to consult your doctor before deciding to try these supplements. Make sure that OA is the cause of your pain. Do not stop or reduce your current prescribed medications without talking with your doctor. How do you take them?

‘‘

‘Choose products sold by large, well-established companies that can be held accountable.’ — HEALTH COLUMNIST DR. COLIN GAGE

If you decide to take these supplements, consult your doctor or pharmacist about the proper dosage. The amount used in studies of glucosamine was 1,500 mg per day and in studies of chondroitin sulfate, 1,200 mg per day was used. But I don’t recommend you just take these amounts without asking your medical doctor or pharmacist. You can try the supplements along with your current medications for six to eight weeks. If you don’t experience any difference in your symptoms within a few months, you probably will not get any relief from using the supplements. Are there side effects? The most common side effects are increased intestinal gas and softened stools. If you experience these problems, you might

want to try another supplement brand before you stop using them altogether. More studies need to be done to confirm the safety and effectiveness of these supplements. Be sure to contact your doctor if you notice any unusual or new symptoms while you are taking them. Cautions Children, women who are pregnant, and women who could become pregnant should not take these supplements. They have not been studied long enough to determine their effects on a child or on a developing fetus. Because glucosamine is an amino sugar, people with diabetes should check their blood sugar levels more frequently when taking this supplement. If you are taking chondroitin sulfate in addition to a blood-

thinning medication or daily aspirin therapy, have your blood clotting time checked more often. This supplement is similar in structure to the blood-thinning drug heparin, and the combination may cause bleeding in some people. If you are allergic to shellfish, consult your doctor before deciding to take glucosamine. In most cases, however, allergies are caused by proteins in shellfish, not chitin, a carbohydrate from which glucosamine is extracted. With my patients, the results of taking glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate seem to be mixed. However, I have not witnessed anyone experiencing serious side effects from them. With this in mind, they may be worth a try. Of course, I would also suggest that a series of chiropractic treatments should be tried either before or during the use of these supplements. Although there is no treatment that will reverse the arthritic changes in a joint, it has been well demonstrated that chiropractic treatment can help relieve the pain and allow the joint to function more efficiently.

OMG...Cents tied for first in the Interior! Merritt wins both ends of a home-and-home series with Langley; a patch-work lineup gets the job done By Ian Webster THE HERALD sports@merrittherald.c

The Merritt Centennials extended their winning streak to four games on the weekend with two inspired victories over the Coast Division leading Langley Rivermen. As a result, the Cents find themselves sitting atop the BCHL’s Interior Division standings, tied with Penticton at 29 points apiece. Friday, on home ice, red-hot Scotty Patterson scored his fourth and fifth goals in a week, and Devin Kero allowed just one puck to get by him in Merritt’s 2-1 win over the Rivermen. Twenty-four hours later, in front of an announced crowd of 2,100 at the Langley Events Centre, it was Kero’s solid play between the pipes again, Diego Cuglietta’s stunning, shorthanded thirdperiod equalizer, and Gavin Gould’s thrilling, sudden-death, doubleovertime winner (his second of the season) that propelled the Cents past the Rivermen, 3-2, to complete the weekend

sweep. Centennials assistant coach Joe Martin, once again in charge while head coach Luke Pierce was back east at the World Junior A Challenge, was understandably delighted by his team’s success on Friday and Saturday. “I went into the weekend thinking that if we played well, it should be one-goal games either way, and it was — fortunately in our favour,” said Martin. The weekend wins over the Rivermen were even more notable given the Centennials’ patchwork lineup. Both nights, the team was without regulars Dane Birks and Jeff Wight (World Juniors) and Bennett Huber, Daniel Nachbaur and Russell Sanderson (injury). By Saturday, the list had grown to include rookie Adam Tracey, who was sidelined by an ugly knee-on-knee collision in the second period of Friday’s game. In the absence of so many roster players, the Cents were forced to call up affiliates Luke Santerno and Kristian Stead (100 Mile of the

Campeau] to make mistakes and give me reasons not to play them, but they didn’t. They fit in really well,” said Martin. The cobbled line-up on Saturday also saw Wayland Williams move up from the blueline to left wing to help the forwards with the forecheck. “[Wayland] did a

great job,” said Martin. “When we were having a bit of trouble in the second period getting momentum, his line (with Zach Hartley and Rhett Willcox) did it for us.” Noticeable in both games was the Centennials’ strong commitment to defensive zone coverage. Martin said it was definitely part

Canada West takes bronze at World Junior A Challenge Merritt Centennials players Dane Birks and Jeff Wight and their Canada West team won the bronze medal on Saturday at the 2013 World Junior A Challenge in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Wight scored the winning goal as Team Canada West defeated Switzerland 5-3 in the battle for third place at

the six-team tournament. The United States won the gold medal by defeating Russia 4-1 on Sunday. Team Canada West was relegated to the bronze medal game after falling to the Russians 5-2 in one of two semifinal games on Friday. The U.S. won the other semi-final, 7-4, over Switzerland.

of their game plan. “We wanted to take away [Langley’s] time and space in our end, and get the puck back as quickly as possible, then make quick, short five-foot passes to get the puck out.” Martin and his interim assistant coach, Cole Yurkowski, also kept the shifts short and the lines rolling throughout both

weekend games. “Everyone on our team was playing well, and we wanted them to continue to play well,” said Martin. “The more often players are out there, the more positive they feel about their game.” Martin had nothing but praise for his secondyear forward, Cuglietta, who continues to take his game to another level night after night. The Kamloops native figured in on all three goals on Saturday — assisting on James Neil’s sixth of the season in the first period, scoring the ‘shortie’ with 1:52 left in the third period to tie the game, and setting up Gould for the dramatic game winner in double overtime. “Diego just keeps on improving,” said the coach. Up next for the Centennials are a pair of home games this weekend against the Vernon Vipers (Friday, 7:30 p.m.) and the Nanaimo Clippers (Sunday, 2 p.m.).

Garthwaite 11th at CFR40 HS volleyball season ends By Ian Webster

By Ian Webster

THE HERALD

THE HERALD

sports@merrittherald.com

In her first appearance at the CPRA’s Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton, Mammit Lake cowgirl Katie Garthwaite managed to finish 11th in the ladies barrel racing event. Garthwaite, 34, and her 10-year-old mare Frenchy went into the 40th edition of the CFR ranked seventh, but experienced some difficulties with the tight course set up in the 18,000-seat Rexall Centre, home of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers. Over the course of the five performances at the Canadian Finals, Garthwaite’s best placing was sixth in round two. She also finished ninth in the first and third rounds, 10th in round four and 12th in the final go. “In the last round, my horse hit the first barrel,” said Garthwaite. “I looked back to see if it went over. I didn’t get my head up soon enough, and by the time

FAST FRIENDS Mammit Lake barrel racer Katie Garthwaite and her 10-year-old mare Frenchy, shown above competing last year, finished 11th at this year’s Canadian Finals Rodeo at Rexall Place in Edmontal. Herald file photo

I looked up, [Frenchy] was on the wrong side of the second barrel. It was my error. You should never look back.” Despite being initially disappointed with her result in Edmonton, Garthwaite said that overall she has enjoyed a terrific barrel racing season. “Of course, my goal was to make the Canadian Finals and do well there. That didn’t

quite happen, but all in all, I had a great year. I had some huge wins at some major rodeos.” Garthwaite, who began competing professionally in 1996, won four times on the CPRA circuit in 2013, including victories at both the Leduc and Grande Prairie rodeos on the last weekend in May, Maple Creek, Sask. in July and Armstrong on the Labour Day week-

end. She had nine other top-10 finishes. Frenchy was also chosen 2013 CPRA Horse with the Most Heart. Garthwaite was also a winner of the first performance at the Canadian Barrel Racing Finals in Chilliwack (Sept. 27-29). She placed third and fourth in the other two gorounds. Her year-end winnings exceeded $17,000.

All four Merritt Secondary School volleyball teams saw their seasons close out this past week. In junior girls playoff action last Tuesday in Kamloops, MSS lost in straight sets to both Valleyview and South Kamloops Secondary to end their season. In similar fashion on the weekend, Merritt Secondary’s senior girls squad dropped both of their matches against Sahali and Valleyview to miss qualifying for the Okanagan championships later this month. Finally, on Tuesday of this week, also in Kamloops, Merritt’s boys and girls Grade 8 teams were knocked out of the zone playoffs.

MINOR HOCKEY REPORT Bantam Rep Merritt’s Murray GM bantam reps got five goals from Eric Lalonde on Sunday in a 10-5 exhibition win over Vernon. Other Merritt marksmen were Keyton Laupitz and Cameron St. Louis (two apiece) and Travis Sterling. Saturday, the Murray GM team battled to a 4-4 tie with Kelowna in league action. Noah Racine had two goals, while Sterling and St. Louis tallied singles. Kristian Stead was his usual ‘steady’ self in net in both games.

Peewee Rep The Ramada Inn peewees had to settle for a tie and a loss from their two league games on the weekend. Saturday, at home, a hat trick by Spencer Vaughan paced the Jr. Cents to a 6-6 draw with Kelowna. Also scoring for Merritt were Talon Zakall, Nicholas Anscomb and Austin Hawkins.

On Sunday, Zakall was the only Merritt player to find the twine in a 4-1 setback at the hands of the West Kelowna Jr. Warriors. Tristan Bjarnason and Colton Macauley shared weekend netminding duties.

Fred R. Johnson Feb 11, 1926 - Nov 8, 2013 Fred passed away peacefully and is survived by Mary, his loving wife of 57 years. He will be forever missed by his children Dennis, Linda (Craig) and Ken (Jackie) and his grandchildren Evan, Sara, Riley and Kelly. Fred was born to Helena Martens in Aberdeen Saskatchewan and had many brothers and sisters growing up on the prairies. He served in WWII on Canadian soil. After his discharge in 1946 Fred worked with his dad, David Dyck, running the Clarkboro Ferry across the N. Saskatchewan River. After his marriage to Mary Szachury in 1956, they moved to Clinton, B.C. where Fred worked for J.B. Fehr & Sons Sawmill until 1960. Then he joined the Dept. of Highways working 28 years until retirement in 1986 as the road maintenance foreman in Logan Lake. He enjoyed fishing, camping and going South (USA) but mostly Fred loved his golf. He was greatly loved and will be missed by many. In lieu of flowers, donations in Fred’s memory may be sent to Meadow Creek Golf Club, Box 827 Logan Lake, B.C. V0K 1W0 or brought to the Celebration of Life on Saturday November 23rd at 11 a.m. at the Logan Lake Community Church.
