Joint Planning Committees offers answers after No vote The outcome of the referendum held on Nov. 9 has raised questions from residents who live or own property within the North Cariboo Recreation and Parks boundary. Below is a list of the top four questions currently being asked. 1. What happens to the money that has been secured through donations and grants to date? The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) and the City of Quesnel will be working with our funding partners and project donors and

will try to secure as many of the grants and other contributions as possible that have been committed to the multi-centre project.   Although there is no multi-centre project today, those donations and grants could remain in the North Cariboo Recreation and Parks budget for future capital projects within the region. 2. What is the process for getting refunds for those donations eligible for a refund? Donors to the project who chose not to receive a tax deduct-

The CRD and city are currently working on the process to efficiently reimburse those donors eligible for a refund. Notification to donors will be issued soon. 3. Can you still make a donation?  We are not accepting cash donations at this time while coordinating the reimbursement for eligible refunds.    4. What happens

next?  The North Cariboo Joint Planning Committee (which consists of the four Cariboo Regional District northern Directors and City of Quesnel Council members) held its regular meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 12 and committed to holding a strategic planning session early in 2014. The committee will review all aspects of the North Cariboo Recreation and Parks Service. A process will be set up to communicate with user groups, stakeholders and residents who reside or

own property within the North Cariboo Recreation and Parks boundaries as we consider next steps and options for recreation infrastructure replacement. “The Cariboo Regional District’s northern directors will continue to work with Quesnel City Council to investigate cost efficient options for the replacement of our aging recreation infrastructure,” CRD Vice-Chair Ted Armstrong stated. “We will be seeking input and feedback from our residents to ensure we

pursue the option which best suits the needs of our community.” “Infrastructure for recreation, arts and cultural needs in our community will require going back to the stakeholders and taxpayers to determine our next steps through the Joint Planning Committee,” Mayor Mary Sjostrom said. “Federal Infrastructure Grant Programs available to local governments across Canada, generally come out in March or April.”

We announce the passing of

Alan Murray Krumm In Vancouver ~ Nov. 9, 2013 After 62 years of wandering the deep, muddy trails and the cruel low slopes of this life, there was a lump of something in the blood to the brain, a sometimes fitful sleep, and few days growing calmer and more pale until he slipped away. “Bloodied but unbowed,” he would have said, because the classic, familiar phrases were a comfort at the last to his battered, scattered mind. Around him, they all proclaimed that “He could have been a captain!” and he was a warrior of sorts, but a lowly, broken-backed foot soldier all the way, friend to every deserter and derelict that crossed his path. He had the aquiline brow and the smooth speech of the free-man aristocrat, but he gathered chains around him somehow as he trudged his long way forward, until finally the iron links strangled him, and he fell full face forward hard onto the unforgiving earth. And as he rested there, his last few frail days, breathing hard and fast, blind-eyed and numb, it seemed as if a miracle occurred, and invisibly he made peace with his demons and his angels, his disease and his descendants. Then he departed quietly And we were left to wonder

Ben Giesbrecht

Mural promotes brand

November 13, 1928 - November 14, 2013

Right: Leigh Cassidy and Gord Eberding painted and erected the new mural on the side of Good For You Market. The mural was a collaboration between FARMED executive, QCEDC and Leigh Cassidy. First intended as a highway sign, the decision was made to enhance the Good for You Market while depicting typical North Cariboo sights. The North Cariboo Farm Country Grown For You brand project, through FARMED, is being showcased throughout the area and this mural touches almost all that is the North Cariboo. Watch for the logo on products and produce you see at such places as the Good For You Market and Christmas Farmers Markets.

It is with profound sadness that the family of Ben Giesbrecht announce his passing on November 14, 2013. Ben peacefully passed away at home surrounded by his family. Ben is survived by his loving wife of 61 years Joyce, as well as daughters Jan Rivers (Greg) and Terri Brault (Paul), and son Mike Giesbrecht (Cathleen). Ben will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Will, Shawna, Brandon, Cody, Brittany, Brieanna, Taylor, and Noah, and great-grandchildren Melia, Alex, Jacob, Lucas, Cohen, and Lyric. Born in Saskatchewan and raised in Clearbrook, Ben and Joyce chose to make Quesnel their home over thirty years ago. Ben was a longtime legion member, active in the Golden Centre for several years, and loved to golf, fish and hunt around

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 1728 - 654 Reid St

NOTICE is given pursuant to Section 892 of the Local Government Act that an application has been made for an amendment to Zoning Bylaw No. 1662, 2009. A Public Hearing on the proposed bylaw is scheduled for November 25th 2013 commencing at 6:30 p.m. at City Council Chambers, City Hall.

BYLAW 1728 654 REID ST

The property under application is civically known as 654 Reid Street, legally described as Lot 5, Block 17, Town of Quesnel, Plan 17000 (shown as Subject Property on the sketch map included).

BOWRON AVE

The purpose of the application is to rezone the subject property to permit Yoga Class Instruction as a home based business at this location. The Yoga Class Instruction will allow class yoga instruction of no more than 10 class participants and no more than 20 class instruction hours per week. In addition, the Bylaw amendment would allow a small sign to hang from the maple tree and allow class participant vehicles to park on the property lot.

cessful life. MacDonald, who is committed to this issue said she was heartened by one aspect of the interview process. “Everyone we interviewed had at least one positive experience,” she said. “They spoke of service providers who were incredibly caring and supportive.” The advisory committee also plans to: •seek funding for

training for service providers; •prevention training and education in the school system targeting youth; •assist organizations in identifying signs of abuse or violence and how to support girls and women who disclose; •develop strategies for perpetrators including programs for men to deal with anger management; •collaboration with Northern Health on their ad campaign to target young boys around violence and sexual assaults against girls. With the establishment of the VAWIR committee, the OVISTA project coordinators and the OVISTA advisory committee are committed to

FRONT ST

Halfway through the OVISTA (Our Vision is Stopping the Abuse) project, coordinators Jennifer Love and Melanie MacDonald report they have completed the interviews with service providers and women and girls who have experienced violence and are ready to move to the next phase. Funded by the Status of Women Canada, OVISTA project coordinators, in conjunction with an advisory committee set up specifically for this project, have compiled the results of these interviews. “We’ve looked at what’s working, what’s not and how to improve,” MacDonald said. “We’ve also looked closely at what these women and girls have experienced with health care, justice, shelter and other areas.” She added one of the difficulties the interviewers heard over and over again was women and girls found themselves reliving the traumatic experience again and again, every time they had to tell their story. “The project’s goal is to build on community collaboration,” MacDonald said. They plan to form a VAWIR, Violence Against Women in Relationship committee which would bring together service providers, who see women and girls who’ve experienced violence, in order to create a community protocol for survivors of violence where collaboration and communication are key to providing services in a supportive and respectful way. “Our plan is to create an easy reference guide for all organizations to understand services provided and the policies and procedures in place of each agency,” Love said. “Once the reference guide is in place the VAWIR committee will reduce it’s meeting times from once a month to every 3

– 4 months to review, update and talk about specific issues, gaps and trends happening in the community.” MacDonald went on to say there appears to be a lack of awareness of services both from the survivors and the service providers. “We’re going to develop an anti-violence booklet and put them in the hands of women and service providers,” she said. The advisory committee also plan to develop and implement a social media campaign with women and girls involvement for feedback and insight. This includes creating brochures and posters for effective advertising of services available, providing tools and techniques to keep women safe and provide direction for assistance. Using Facebook, newspaper, local radio and television to bring awareness and break down the stigma of violence and abuse. “It’s important to cross barriers such as isolation, shame and a sense of hopelessness through all these strategies to reach women and girls experiencing violence,” MacDonald explained. Tackling the culture of violence against women and girls is a daunting task, but essential as all survivors of violence have a right to a safe, suc-

CAPSULE COMMENTS

With Jessica Joly B.Sc. (Pharm) The most rapidly increasing type of cancer in the developed world is esophageal cancer where tumours affect the tube that takes food to the stomach. This type of cancer is linked to smoking, acid reflux and obesity. Since smoking rates are dropping every year, the increasing rate of obesity is one of the main risk factors. The laws governing the restriction of certain drugs to prescription-only are designed to protect the public. It wasn’t always so. Back in the early years of the 20th century, people could buy products like Coca Wine and Heroin which contained the drugs cocaine and heroine, which made addicts out of many people. Even morphine products were freely available. Drug laws protect us well today. As pharmacists, we are always confident of the quality of the medications in the pharmacy. They are accurately labeled with the name and amount of every active ingredient. Street drugs are another matter. Contents are not guaranteed and may even contain other drug products. One dose of a bad drug can change a life forever. The best and safest rule is don’t take it. We all miss doses of our medications now and then. If you miss one dose, take the dose the next time it’s due. Don’t double up. With birth control pills, it’s a bit more involved. It depends on the type of pill you are taking and which tablet in the cycle was missed. It may be necessary to use another method of birth control. Our pharmacists are available with the answers about missed doses of medications. Don’t hesitate to check with them whenever you are in doubt.

Those who are traditionally left behind by the political agenda’s of powerful rich people. That should be applauded and it was right up until his bad behaviour, both in front of the camera and ostensibly behind the camera, covered the front page. We all watched in amazement as his popularity not only maintained favour but at one point even rose a point or two. But, unfortunately, as bad decision after bad decision was strewn all over the political stage and Ford admitted time after time his indiscretions, it became painfully obvious to everyone but Ford that it was time to crawl away, his reputation, political career and future hopes in tatters. But no, he then heaps potty mouth statements to his already damaging image and the media just have to stand by and press record as this pitiful man digs the hole deeper and deeper. His council is struggling with how to not only continue the business of running Canada’s largest metropolitan city but also how to control an out-of-control mayor, minimize any further damage to the city’s reputation and find a way to effectively divest Rob Ford of any power. They can’t remove him from office, which, according to the press, would be their first choice, but they can strip him of any ability to inflict revenge (which he has alluded to in several of his outbursts). The Ontario government hasn’t committed to any action but there appears to be steps they can also take. What a sad day for Canadian politics. What a sad day for Rob Ford. As Canadians and people around the entire world watch, some with horror, some with amusement, all with amazement, Rob Ford will go away and the headlines will be birdcage liner. We will recover. –Annie Gallant, Cariboo Observer

Two solitudes on B.C. farmland M

y late father used to say that if he ever won the lottery, he would “farm until it’s all gone.” It was 1960 when he and my mother pulled up stakes in the Okanagan, where their families had been for generations and moved north to carve a homestead out of a half section in the Peace River country. So it’s a mainly northern perspective that I bring to the latest debate over B.C.’s agricultural land reserve. A dialogue of the deaf has been going on for decades in B.C., where there are two separate realities in agriculture. The dominant voice is always from the southwest, from the Okanagan to the Fraser Valley to southern Vancouver Island. This is not only B.C.’s most productive land, it’s also the place of greatest population and development pressure, where three million of the province’s four million residents live and more arrive every day. In the rest of the province, except for pockets that are attractive for recreational development, farming is a tough row to hoe. These days, people are more likely

B.C. Views to be moving away. In our urbanized society, the loudest voices tend to be the least informed, from backyard-chicken hipsters to what I call “drive-by environmentalists,” who like to look out their car windows at green fields as they motor from their subdivisions to big-box stores. The elderly Sikhs and Mexican guest workers bent over in the fields don’t need their lofty lectures on “food security.” Voices from the rest of the province are seldom heard and quickly shouted down, as was the case at the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver.   Merritt councillor Mike Goetz pleaded for relief from an Agricultural Land Commission that refuses to release a property that has “grown nothing but

That’s why the removal rule is routinely ignored in rural B.C., Hanoski said. These second homes are the only rental stock there is, providing modest income for marginal farms, and should be allowed permanent foundations. Motion defeated, after a scolding from a Sunshine Coast delegate about people lusting to build mansions on farmland. I asked Bill Bennett, the cabinet minister in charge of the latest agricultural land review, about a rumoured proposal to split the province into two zones with different rules. He declined to comment, but described the case of Fort Steele Farms, the East Kootenay community’s only market garden that almost closed because the next generation was initially refused permission for a second home. The two zones approach deserves serious consideration. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press andBCLocalNews.com Twitter:@tomfletcherbc E-mail: tflectcher@ blackpress.ca

rocks and tumbleweeds for the last 100 years.” Similar property next door was released, but not this parcel, blocking a project for five years in a little town that could use the work and additional tax base. Urban sprawl isn’t a big problem in Merritt, which like many small towns is trying to hang onto its population.  Spallumcheen councillor Ed Hanoski described the situation beyond the towns, the real rural B.C. He proposed easing the restrictions on building a second home on farm properties. Currently, farmers can put a mobile home on their property for an elderly or infirm relative, but nothing with a permanent foundation. Once that relative moves or passes away, the home is supposed to be removed. Hanoski said a sewage system for such a residence costs around $12,000. Add the temporary foundation, skirting, well hookup, power, landscaping, driveway and a mobile home that will lose its value if it has to be moved and the property owner takes a loss of $150,000 or more.

feedback

The voters have spoken Editor, In my opinion, that was an impressive front page on today’s (Nov. 13/13) Observer re the Nov. 9 referendum! Why were the city mayor and council not impressed? Because, just like spoiled children who throw fits when they don’t get their own way – our elected officials (with the exception of one, I believe) have been very shamefully and undemocratically openly pushing and accepting only the yes vote (even hired a private citizen to promote their ‘yes’ and paid it with plenty of tax dollars) – they are determined to dictate their way in this whole deal re the Multi-Centre.                 Officials have refused to accept the last referendum on the same complex which designated the time is up (I believe mid December 2013) re: fundraising.     Thus, on Tuesday (Nov. 12) morning, I was told: ‘The city says the referendum was only an opinion - not binding in any way!’ How astounding! How un-democratic can they be?     There are needs and there are wants. Most of us have to grow-up in this respect! It seems to me spoiled children throwing fits resembles city and CRD officials now saying: ‘We will have it our way ... who of us cares if the majority of the voting taxpayers don’t want it!     Fact: Our arena is closing in on 60 years old! It has needed repair and/or rebuilding for a good 25 – 30 years. And, yes, there is no access to watch games, etc. for disabled people which, in itself, is to the shame of the city/district!         Fact: The original plans for our Arts and Recreation Centre included a theatre in the future i.e. why that complex is named so. P.S. There’s lots of room for building and parking at that site.     How many of us want to do-awaywith the brick plaza in front of the arena and curling rink which cost us more than $300,000 to put in? How many of us want to have the most crowded downtown centre in which you are never sure of getting a parking spot even close to your destination, be it the curling rink, the arena, a theatre, or an event that you are attend-

Letters to the Editor

ing in that complex?     We don’t need a $30 million arena; other communities have built theirs for $6 – $8 million – probably the money not spent in Quesnel on an arena, efficient  equipment and/or repairs over the last 30+ years!     Finally, the vote was an impressive No – far more than half! I believe, the voted-in officials in Quesnel and area were voted-in to represent us – not to impress themselves and their colleagues, or to suppress our votes, and/or digress to their own wants/ opinions/goals! So, I sincerely invite each elected person in the Quesnel area to review their oaths taken after their election – your promises are not to one person, including the mayor, but to all the taxpayers – the people who believed you could be trusted with our opinions/votes!     This entire letter is in my opinion and while saying that: I am very unimpressed with city and district officials demonstrating as a united-group that there is only one side in any city/district business/goals that involve tax dollars!     Let’s move on now, look reality straight in the face and honestly face the people have spoken with no $30,000,000+ multi-plex, but remember, we have an arena that is embarrassing in which to host out of town teams, claimed to be un-safe/condemned and not ready for the disabled people who want to proudly watch loved ones or friends enjoying the ice/grad ceremonies, etc.     Let’s move on with hope, also, that one day a theatre might be supportable in Quesnel, but if Prince George struggles financially to keep theirs operating, I think the arts might have to wait a while – the ice sports can not expect to support more than an arena. (We do need rink two to remain, or we’ll have six-year-olds practicing at 5:30 a.m. like in the old days).     Again, in my opinion, we are headed in the right direction now. Ruth McClounie Quesnel

A moving ceremony, well done CSS Editor: We attended the Remembrance Day Assembly at Correlieu Secondary School on Friday, Nov. 8. What a treat that was. From beginning to end, it was well organized and well orchestrated. All those who participated did exceptionally well (band, choir and

individual performers and speakers) and both of us congratulate the students who sat in the bleachers for their attentiveness and respect. It may be trite to say, but you could literally have heard a pin drop throughout the whole program. Principal Mike Adams, music instructor Shawn

Smith and all other staff and students that helped in organizing the assembly must be highly commended. This was, for us, a very special presentation and a privilege and pleasure to attend and certainly one that we will remember. Jack and Vicki Nelson Quesnel

Christmas is a time of giving and the Salvation Army is grateful for all donations

Serving those in need

n our community, on average about 100 households depend on the Salvation Army Food Bank every month to feed their families, which is up slightly from last year Lieutenant Stefan Van Schaick said. The Salvation Army soup kitchen serves between 100 – 120 meals every day, four days a week, Tuesday – Friday. Both services operate from the Warrior’s Song Cafe. “In a perfect world, Warriors Song wouldn’t be a refuge for the desperate, it would function as a safe, welcoming social outlet for the community,” Stefan said. “But until then we are here to help and uplift.” Both Stefan and his wife Laura are amazed and very grateful for the generosity of the community in helping them meet the needs in Quesnel. “At this time of year, after the harvest, we have an abundance to be thankful for,” Stefan said. “It’s spring when the need skyrockets and we have to purchase the staples, both perishable and non-perishable.” To that end, the Salvation Army volunteers staff the kettles at Christmas time at various locations around town

gathering donations that will help meet the need throughout the year. Although ready to meet emergencies should they be called on, the Salvation Army recommends anyone in need call the food bank number, 250-992-7079 and make an appointment. It only takes a few moments and is a more effective way to get the help needed.

Deep into winter, the soup kitchen is at its most vital time of need and Stefan and the Salvation Army volunteers are grateful for every donation they receive. If people are wondering what is most needed for both the soup kitchen and the food bank, Stefan says they can always use root veggies like potatoes and carrots, canned fish, canned veggies

and fruit to provide the most nutritious help to those in need. But he cautions donors to check the dates on any non-perishable food donations as everything has a best before date and expired food is of no value to anyone. Just because they’re in need, that shouldn’t diminish their sense of selfworth or dignity. “These are things we want to promote in all our clientele,” Stefan said. “If it’s not good enough for you, it’s not good enough for them.” The Salvation Army Christmas kettles will be staffed beginning Nov. 30 and anyone with a two-hour window and a generous spirit can call and volunteer their time. Christmas dinner is being served at the Warrior’s Song Cafe Dec. 11. It’s open to everyone and volunteers are always appreciated. Again this year, the Salvation Army is hosting a Christmas kids party, Dec. 21 with two sittings, 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Tickets are available at the Warriors Song Cafe and this event focuses on those in need. So as you are out and about preparing for your own Christmas, consider those less fortunate and give generously to the Salvation Army kettle campaign.

West Village Community Garden wraps up for winter The West Village Community Garden’s harvesting is over and its winterization almost done. The resounding first year’s success is due to the diligent efforts of the North Cariboo Aboriginal Family Society, Grace Young Activity Centre and volunteers. A special acknowledgement and thanks go to Victor Johnson, Charles McGee and Gordon Daly, who put in countless hours in planning and labour to establish the garden. We also express appreciation to all the local compa-

nies and organizations that assisted with this project. A sign is placed at the garden site as a permanent thank you for the generous contributions of the donors. Surplus produce has benefited Seasons House, Salvation Army, the Aboriginal Family Society and Grace Young Centre as well as many individuals. As winterization of the garden is nearing completion, plans are underway for next spring. Seeds from this year’s crops have been saved and the CNC greenhouse will be used again to

start seedlings and bedding plants for the planting day in May 2014. The children’s area next year will see the addition of a teepee made from bean poles and a gumboot garden. The community is invited to bring pesticide-free vegetable scraps, leaves, clippings, eggshells and coffee grounds to the compost area, knowing this effort will allow the garden to produce pesticidefree, organic produce. The Westside garden will prove in the coming years to be a great place to learn gar-

dening skills, get exercise, harvest healthy produce, bring children and meet other people. To join the volunteers next spring, drop by the garden at 325 Lewis Drive (beside the Westside outdoor skating rink) to pick up a brochure or call Wendy at the Women’s Resource Centre, 250-992-8472. A toast to next year’s success and a heartfelt thanks again to all our wonderful supporters. – submitted by Wendy Hammond, planner and coordinator

Don’t take your health for granted, this is your chance to do the right thing for yourself

L

ung cancer takes more Canadian lives than breast, prostate and colorectal cancers combined. Out of the 3,000 estimated cases expected in 2013, 2,400 will lead to deaths. After tobacco, radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada. If you are not familiar with radon, it is a naturally occurring gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in the rocks and soil. Its odourless, tasteless, colourless and you’ll never know if radon is in your home unless you test for it.

is to get your home tested. If you do test your home and find high levels of radon, there are a few things you can do. First, there are con-

tractors that can help you fix your home and give advice on the best next steps. Second, any upgrades such as sealing cracks around pipes

and opening air vents in the basement are also suggested. If you have any further questions or concerns, you may call the Canadian Cancer

Society Quesnel unit office at 250-9926551. Sometimes, we take things for granted, our health being a very common one.

And we never truly understand the importance of it until it’s taken away. This is your chance; you have the opportunity right in front of you.

Take it and do not let leave anything worthwhile behind. Ivana Topic is a volunteer with Canadian Cancer Society, Quesnel office.

There’s snow deal like this.

Health Canada currently estimates that 16 per cent of lung cancer deaths in Canada are caused by radon. Long term exposure to 200Bq/ m3 of radon increases your risk of lung cancer from one to two per cent if you are a non-smoker and 12 – 17 per cent if you are a smoker. If you want to test your home, Northern Health’s public health protection offices sells kits for only $20 in the month of November. You can also call 250-983-6810 or drop by the office at 523 Front Street to get your kit now. The BC Lung Association also sells kits online at www.radonaware. ca. Currently, there are no immediate symptoms related to radon exposure so the only way to see if you are at risk of exposure

Bloodied but not beaten

’Roos face a couple close shaves in Movember Jonas Gagnon Observer Reporter The Kangaroos came out of the weekend unbeaten but plenty bloodied after a double-header of overtime wins that put them on top of their division. “To beat two of the top teams in the other division, now that everyone’s found their rhythm – that’s something,” coach Brian Kozak said. The Luckies and the Steelheads are first and third, respectively, in their division. It’s the second back-to-back weekend for the ’Roos and marks a four game win streak for the Quesnel team. Short on defence on the road, Kozak juggled Matt Stang and Curtis Gassoff, who played exceptionally well in the new role, to the back and made due without a back up goalie for the weekend.

The bout of on-ice pugilism energized the ’Roos, leading them to make a run of four unanswered goals to take the lead for the first time in the game. Put back on their heels, the Steelheads pulled their goalie and managed to tie it up, pushing the game to overtime. The ’Roos continued to push the Steelheads through the first four minutes of the over time period when Joel Boyetchko caught the Steelhead defence in the neutral zone preparing to switch lines. He poked the puck to Rigby Burgart for a two-man breakaway that ended the game with the 7-6 final. Currently, the ’Roos sit at the top of the league, with 16 points, but at 12 games played are also up three games on the rest of the league. To make up for that plethora of games, the ’Roos will spend this weekend resting and allowing the rest of the league to catch up. The Kangaroos come home again Nov. 30 to play against the Lac La Hache Tomahawks.

Streaked sheets Super leaguer took to the sheets last week in a bevy of exciting matches that broke losing streaks and extended win streaks. The Quesnel Golf club got back their green in an 11-3 victory over the QCDC. After three demoralizing weeks of losing, the Quesnel Golf Club scored a much needed win. Resplendent in their new, shiny green coats, they wicked, ticked and raised their way to victory. The first four lucky fans received a one hour lesson from the new club pro Jamie 'The Hand' Stodart. Sky Hi flew above Willis Harper, 6-3. In a back and forth match, Sky Hi stole two in the fourth to go up by two. Both teams traded points in the last couple of ends, with Sky Hi pulling away to win.' Investors Group saw their stock rise with a 10-4 victory over A&W. A&W made an excellent draw to tie the game in the eighth, but was unable to steal in an extra end to allow Investors Group to chuck up the victory. The root beer needs to take a refresher course with the hamburger. And the Billy 'Rolls' on.. the undefeated. The Barker boys took down the hot deli girls in a great endgame, 9-6.

Make an effort to get together with your friends and take the initiative with planning. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, your approach to a problem is not working. It could be time to take an entirely new approach and see if this produces results. Be patient with this new approach.

Ferry sailings on the chopping block as BC Ferries looks for ways to cut deficit. Contributed photo

BC Ferries to cut routes, try slots Sailing cuts are coming in April to most of BC Ferries’ minor and northern routes, as the corporation looks to save $18.9 million in the next two years. Transportation Minister Todd Stone and BC Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan announced the reductions Monday, along with a plan to begin charging seniors half passenger fares that are currently offered free from Monday to Thursday. BC Ferries is also planning a pilot project with slot machines on the main routes from Vancouver Island to the mainland, to test the revenue

potential. Fare increases of four per cent and 3.9 per cent are to go ahead in the next two years, but Stone said the goal is to hold future increases to the rate of inflation or less after that. “We heard loud and clear from people in the coastal communities … that fares cannot continue to escalate as they have, and people want the ferry service to be there,” Stone said. Ferry reductions outlined by the ministry review will go ahead in next spring, after another round of consultations with coastal communities to look for schedule adjustments to make the remaining runs serve residents as effectively as possible. The route reduc-

Community Futures, your one-stop source for business information

tions, feedback forms and a schedule of community meetings are posted at the review website, www. coastalferriesengagement.ca. There are no further reductions proposed for the main Vancouver Island runs, but Stone said the ministry’s target is to find another $5 million in savings on those routes following reductions last year to the Tsawwassen-Duke Point route. The cancelled runs are mostly early morning or late evening, many with passenger loads of 20 per cent or less. The largest reduction is a one-third cut to Port Hardy-Prince Rupert run, BC Ferries’ longest and most heavily subsidized service that lost $31 million on operations

last year. Other runs being cut include Horseshoe Bay to Bowen Island, Comox to Powell River, Gabriola Island to Nanaimo and Quadra Island to Campbell River. NDP ferry critic Claire Trevena said the service reductions will have an “outrageous impact” on communities such as Quadra Island where she lives. “We’re already seeing people leaving communities because of the cost of the ferries,” Trevena said. “We’ve seen young families go, we’ve seen businesses in trouble, and this is just going to compound that.” Long-term strategies include converting new ferries to natural gas fuel and exploring passenger-
