▼ KELOWNA MOUNTAIN

Financial problems for development Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Investors now know the full details of the risk they incurred by purchasing shares in the development scheme dubbed Kelowna Mountain. Variously pitched as a multi-sport adventure tourism site, housing development and ice wine vineyard since founder Mark Consiglio first went public with the plan in 2006, the B.C. Securities Commission suspended sale of shares in the limited partnership which now owns the mountain on Aug. 13 as the paperwork explaining the investment was too light on details. In an effort to have this Cease Trade Order rescinded, Consiglio, acting on behalf of Kelowna Mountain Development Services, general partner to the new owner, Kelowna Mountain Limited Partnership, outlined an offer for those who bought shares to get a full refund this fall. The offer was valid through Nov. 4, and promised the full amount back, although investors would lose any interest that would have accumulated since their purchase was made and those who bought multiple shares might receive a promissory note for the future sale of shares instead of money. Among the documents now on record with the securities commission, and mailed to investors with this offer, it’s made clear the mountain faces potential foreclosure owing to Consiglio’s debts and notes that there is no obligation for the developer make good on the original pitch. “Some of Kelowna Mountain’s promotional material suggested that you would receive a residential lot and golf membership in a resort-style community… As described in the updated OM, this is only one development scenario. Kelowna Mountain is not obligated to develop the property in this way or at all,” the letter states. The new offering memorandum, or OM, referenced is a requirement for upstart ventures, used in place of a prospectus outlining the full financing and business plan for a company if the cost of developing a prospectus is too onerous.

GRADE 11 Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary student James Gabriel speaks about ways to improve communication between the district and students Wednesday morning at the third annual West Kelowna Mayor’sYouth Forum.

Mayor’s forum focuses on youth issues Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Local students who want to see change had the eyes and ears of several of the community’s most influential decision- makers Wednesday morning. The third annual West Kelowna Mayor’s Youth Forum took place at Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary. Local politicians, social workers, teachers and students put their heads together for the twohour breakfast event to discuss the issues affecting young people.

Round table discussions focused on four major topics: Youth safety and security, transportation throughout the community, youth recognition and celebration and communication between the District of West Kelowna and School District 23. Grade 11 MBSS student James Gabriel said the annual event is an important one for youth to have their voices heard. “We had good communication today,” said Gabriel. “I think it’s really good because it included the youth who think things need to be improved

and then it (included) the people who can make those improvements.” Gabriel said a lot of strong ideas came out of his table’s discussion at the event, including the implementation of a community awards ceremony for youth, which would recognize achievements other than athletic skills and academic grades. He added the district would likely be able to better connect with students if they had a smartphone app that sent relevant information directly to students’ phones.

Other students commented on the need to increase security at bus stops, the unreliability of public transit and the lack of mental health resources in their schools. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater began Wednesday’s forum by giving the crowd a list of steps the district has already taken to provide some of the things youth have been asking for over the years, including: CNR Wharf improvements, an RCMP school liaison officer, prelimin-

NEWS ▼ OKANAGAN LAKE

Kokanee numbers remained down this year Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Initial counts of this year’s Okanagan Lake shore-spawning kokanee indicate things haven’t improved from last year, when there was a mysterious plunge in their populations. Stock assessment biologist Paul Askey with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations says although the numbers are low, there is naturally quite a bit of fluctuation in the numbers of shore-spawning kokanee that return to spawn every year. He said he’s more concerned about the low stream-spawner numbers this year, particularly since they are a larger kokanee and are more likely to be targeted by recreational anglers. However, he says the numbers of both stream and shore-spawners is going down at the moment. He’s concerned that the lake is not a very productive environment now and that’s limiting the total number of kokanee that can survive the three or four years there before returning to spawn before they die. Kokanee are a freshwater salmon, and follow similar cycles to their saltwater cousins, swimming upstream and spawning where they were born before dying. The kokanee that returned to spawn on shore this year came from parents born in a year that was also low in numbers, so he’s not surprised at the low numbers. He has no answers for the decline, but says there have been no drastic changes that might be accountable for

JUDIE STEEVES/CAPITAL NEWS

THE SPAWNING kokanee count hasn’t recovered from a mysterious plunge in their numbers recorded last year. the drop. He figures it’s a combination of factors. Efforts to restore habitat in both Mission and Penticton Creek could improve numbers, but that depends on the lake’s conditions, he said. Next year could be a better year as there were a higher number of smolts four years ago, when they would have been born. It’s still believed the introduced Mysis shrimp compete with young kokanee for feed in the lake, even

though they also provide feed for more-mature fish that survive that early competition. Another fish count was conducted in Wood Lake this fall, but numbers of returning spawners were so low, it was an easy task, he said. He doesn’t expect the crash of 2011 in kokanee numbers in Wood Lake will bounce back until at least 2016. Acoustic trawls show there are lots of juvenile fish in the lake, which is

encouraging, he said. The ministry is keeping an eye on water levels in Middle Vernon Creek and the District of Lake Country is cooperating by increasing flows in the creek during the spawning period, he said. And, further north in the valley, Kalamalka Lake had a high number of shore-spawning kokanee return to lay eggs this fall, he noted. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Mall ushers in Santa with a parade Santa will be joined by some “Little Angels” when Orchard Park Shopping Centre ushers his arrival to Kelowna with a parade through the mall on Friday evening. The Santa Parade will start at 6:30 p.m. joined by a host of children between the ages of 8 and 14 who have volunteered to go shopping at the shopping centre’s expense to buy gifts for children in need this Christmas season. “The idea with Little Angels is for a child to help another child in the community who is less fortunate than they are,” said Vikki Webster, marketing manager for Orchard Park. “Each participate receives a gift card and a Christmas gift wishlist for a child registered with the Salvation Army Christmas Fund,” she said. “Our goal is to provide gifts for 100 kids in need.” Along with the Little Angels for the Santa Parade will be cast members of the Actors Studio production of Shrek and ballet dancers with the Nutcracker production. “It’s the first time we’ve tried this (Santa Parade) so we hope it goes over well and it can become an annual event,” Webster said. Santa will be set up for photos as of Saturday in the mall courtyard area outside of Sport Chek. As well, the extended Christmas shopping hours will kick in the same day, open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday up to Christmas Day.

▼ PHILIPPINES TYPHOON

Concert and garage sale help raise donations for relief effort A fundraiser to aid relief efforts for typhoon victims in the Philippines will take place this weekend at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. The event, organized by Revolution Events, will include some 20 live bands, solo artists, and other performers, and a silent auction. The concert takes place Saturday, from 2 to 9 p.m. The net proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross Typhoon

Haiyan relief effort. The goal is to raise $100,000 locally, which the federal government has committed to matching, says Revolution Events co-founder James Blonde. Blonde said the Revolution Events team started the project before the storm actually landed in the Philippines on Nov. 7. “The community has been extremely supportive. People and businesses have been forthcoming with generous offers,”

said Blonde, working on this event along with Trance Blackman and Chelsey Dalzell. Current event supporters include the Canadian Red Cross, all TD Bank locations throughout the Okanagan, Opera Kelowna, Wentworth Music and Oranj Fitness. “We’d like to take this opportunity to encourage the people of the Okanagan to support this cause,” Blonde said. “We’re so grateful for the offers of volunteers

and artists donating their time for this event. “We saw something similar in Haiti several years ago, and we’re fortunate this type of disaster doesn’t happen here. “We trust locals will dig deep into their pockets both at home and at work. “We’ve set the target at $100,000 and it would be just fantastic to reach or surpass that goal. It can be done. There are nearly 300,000 people living the Okanagan. Surely this is an obtainable goal.”

For more information, or for individuals or corporations wanting to make donations or to contribute to the event, check out the website at www.RevolutionEvents. ca for more information or connect on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ RevolutionEventsCanada.

GARAGE SALE

An Upper Mission resident is doing her part to help the Red Cross relief effort in the Philippines.

Jodi Mohr, who lives at 4580 Westsridge Dr. in Crawford Estates, will hold a garage sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. For sale will be much of the Christmas-related items she has collected over the years, from artificial trees and decorations to a Santa Claus that sings and dances. Mohr said along withselling the items for cash donations, she is also accepting nonperishable food donations.

Mohr said her inspiration for doing this has come from the efforts by the owner of the Pearl of the Orient, a Filipino market on Dilworth Drive, to help those in need. Owner Elle Harris has been accepting donations of food, clothing and cash for the relief effort. Mohr said she wants to do what she can to help and, along with others, plans to deliver the donations collected to the (Pearl of the Orient) on Monday.

Proposal facing fiscal pressures

Qualifications for new civic centre sought

Development from A1 It was off the details in this original OM that $22 million in Kelowna Mountain shares were sold before the commission stepped in. The history of financial transactions now available indicates this has not been used to entirely cover off the debts Consiglio’s previous companies incurred, debts now registered on the title of the land the Kelowna Mountain Partnership owns. The investors were made aware of this in February. Consiglio purchased the property in the early 2000s for $7.4 million, went public with his development plans, then formed Kelowna Mountain Limited Partnership in 2011, a company which would offer up to 849 shares in his vision, at varying prices. He then sold the original property to this new company for $37.3 million. His own companies owed $18 million and the debt was financed against the title of the four land parcels that make up Kelowna Mountain, and this debt was then transferred to the new owners. The first round of shares sold for $39,995 and purportedly raised $12 million, which Consiglio transferred to his own companies to complete the sale, with the rest to come from the future sale of shares. Kelowna Mountain Partnership has now paid $23.6 million to Consiglio and, while he has paid down the debt, some $4.85 million is still owed on the property with threat of foreclosure looming as the original lenders Consiglio owed money to want their money back. According to the OM, in February of this year an extraordinary annual general meeting was called in to deal with the problems and the partners, or shareholders, then authorized the company to borrow up to an additional $35 million to cover debts. As the commission put an end to the only revenue source in August, Kelowna Mountain currently has no revenue to back the stream of borrowing. Reports from a grand opening held on the mountain this summer suggest the investors are primarily Chinese nationals. There is an immigration stream which allows foreign investors willing to invest a substantial sum in Canadian businesses entry into Canada; however, none of those interviewed suggested this was a reason for making the investment.

The District of West Kelowna has issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) from proponents interested in designing and building the West Kelowna Civic Centre Project in Westbank Centre. The RFQ is expected to result in the creation of a shortlist of up to three proponents, who will be asked to take part in a Request for Proposals (RFP) process, expected to begin in early 2014. The district currently operates offices out of

2760 Cameron Road—a community hall at the Mount Boucherie Complex—as well as offices on Elliott Road and Bartley Road. In 2012, an architectural firm was hired to review the current office space and analyze future requirements. The study found that the current facility was at capacity. The district conducted a market sounding exercise beginning in March, inviting stakeholders in

of the Central and South Okanagan / Similkameen

the community to respond to a series of considerations for the development of the Municipal Hall/ Civic Centre. On June 18, council agreed that options for a future civic centre be investigated in the Westbank area of the municipality. Through the RFQ process, the municipality is seeking to find the best qualified proponents to take part in the RFP, which will have the following goals and object-

ives: • Provide interior workspace that promotes increased performance, efficiency and comfort in a cost-effective and efficient way • Promote a civic and commercial centre for West Kelowna • Reinforce the land use, growth management and economic development goals of the district • Communicate the civic nature of any new building, and underscore the appropriate role of gov-

ernment in the District of West Kelowna • Provide economic development opportunities for other commercial and residential development • Generally adhere to the design guidelines associated with the DWK Official Community Plan and Westbank Centre Revitalization Plan. The deadline for submissions is 2 p.m. on Dec. 11. The RFQ document is available on the district’s website, www.districtofwestkelowna.ca.

Students voice their concerns Issues from A1 ary work on a new skatepark and 2014 RapidBus transit with new bus exchanges. Findlater said the lack of mental health services on the Westside is an issue the district has heard about several times, from various groups. “We’ve heard from Joanne Konnert and the health centre report that we need better mental health service; we’ve heard from Elizabeth Fry Society and their study of women’s services; now we’ve heard from the youth community,” said Findlater. “This is not a service provided by West Kelowna, nor should it be…but I think we have to go to work and start lobbying

for a position through the provincial government.” He noted communication has been one of the toughest issues to deal with. “It’s difficult getting the word out…the website is there, lots of media releases, we have a Twitter account and a Facebook account,” said Findlater. “There’s some obligation on the part of the general public and the general youth population to seek the information out. “I think that’s what we have to work on as well: Telling people where they can go for information. “And then they better go get it if they want to know what’s going on.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

four-day conference, all of those are involved, as well as those from academia, business people, non-profits and students, she said. While non-profits tend to bring the passion, academia brings the innovation, local government the long-term perspective and the ability to affect change, business the competition, and the students will inherit it all, explained de Vries. “It’s very exciting for me; I find it very hopeful to see the young people so passionate about change,” she commented. In addition to the four days crammed with speakers and panels, discussion groups and presentations, there are four evening sessions at the Grand Okanagan conference centre, which begin at 7 p.m., that are available for both delegates and non-delegates, for a minimum donation of $5.

My husband and I are entering the real estate market and we have several must-haves on our shopping list. At the very top is walkability, which includes walking distance to a grocery store, elementary school, and playground; a safe neighbourhood, which includes accessible sidewalks, street lighting, and cross walks; and close proximity to public transit. Some of our friends have questioned why walkability is so important and this is what I tell them: Living in a walkable neighbourhood is good for your physical, social and mental health. Walkability encourages people of all ages to get outside and be more physically active. Currently, one in three British Columbians are living with preventable chronic illnesses like heart disease. Walking keeps us healthier and helps reduce our risk of chronic disease and obesity. Second, getting out of our houses and our cars allows us to socialize with our neighbours.

Having a playground down the street will make it easy for my children to be active and for our family to get to know other families in the neighbourhood. Social connections help build a safe and supportive community where neighbours shovel walks for each other and parents look after neighbourhood children when a little help is needed. Spending time in nature can also boost our mental well-being. Fresh air is calming whether it’s under the stars or the sun, in the wilderness or in our town centres. Not everyone is able to hike up a mountain, but smooth, paved sidewalks, benches and neighbourhood green spaces help make nature accessible to all and that can mean the difference between isolation and happiness. Walkability is at the top of our new home must-have list because we want to raise a family in a neighbourhood that promotes healthy living and a sense of community. Health is something that can happen every day…here we live, learn, work, and play. Tanya Osborne is a community health facilitator with Interior Health.

Church youth group to stage concert in support of Kelowna Gospel Mission Son Valley Fellowship church youth will stage a benefit Christmas concert Nov. 30, 7 p.m., to assist the Kelowna Gospel Mission. The youth church members, ranging in

age from 13 to 25, already have lined up some Christian music acts with tickets selling for $7/person at the door, which will also enter those attending in a draw for a variety of donated raffle prizes.

Erica Hawkes, a church group youth leader, said the original goal was to raise money for an industrial washer and dryer for the gospel mission, but they have since learned the facility for the homeless has more urgent needs. “We will have a list of those needs at the fundraiser for people to look over. Perhaps one idea we could adopt is to give people a vote to pick what they want the funds to go into,” Hawkes said. The concert, to be held at the The Bridge, 2100 Gordon Dr., is an example, Hawkes said, of the church youth members wanting to make a difference to bring positive change to people’s lives in their community.

NEWS ▼ ENTREPRENEUR CONFERENCE

The path to avoid being overwhelmed in business

Dan Zaleski running a small business. “There is a lot of information to draw from out there and I think many people get overwhelmed. There is so much coming at them, they begin to procrastinate and become reactive rather than proactive in their business decisions. There is just so much coming at them.” Zaleski says what he prefers to call the state of “whelm” is one that can be addressed by a system he has perfected over the years in becoming an eighth-degree Black Belt, developing his own series of martial arts studios, and then branching out of that into a real estate sales career in the Central Okanagan. He breaks down achieving success in business to some basis steps: Having a desire to start a business and a business plan for what you want to do; having the long-term

Program spokesman Mel Clifford says,“People going through separation and divorce don’t often know what choices they have available to them or how to deal with stressful emotions and end up making poor decisions. “These decisions can cause unnecessary suffering for many years afterward.

issue he plans to tackle at the conference, his message being that while some people are natural-born leaders, the concept of leadership in the business world is a learned skill that comes from preparation, long-term vision and showing enthusiasm with an attitude of gratitude—and exhibiting those actions on a persistent and consistent basis. “That is simpler said than done, but that is really how it breaks down. When I started studying in martial arts, I came to learn about leadership and achieving success like most other people. Most of us start at the back of the buffet line and work ourselves to the front by learning from the challenges we face daily and moving forward,” he said. Zaleski will be joined by other presenters at the conference including Jason Neale, David MacCoubrey, Antony Edwards, Marilyn Strong, Andre Gregson, Karen Luniw, Pamela Thompson, Andrea Lindal, Charlie Peet and Alexandra Krieger.

When your faith, emotions and actions are all in sync, the chances of finding success as a entrepreneur will never be better, says a Kelowna motivational business speaker. Dan Zaleski says while overnight success in business does happen, more often than not achieving success is a more deliberate process that will present challenges for a business owner to learn and grow from. “I prefer to look at it as challenges that people face rather than mistakes,” Zaleski said. “There are no mistakes, just lessons we learn from. We stop making mistakes if we learn from them rather than continually repeating them.” Zaleski will be sharing his thoughts about business leadership and finding success as an entrepreneur as the keynote speaker at a conference this week sponsored by the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society called Unleashing Ideas: Building the Entrepreneurship a Culture in the Okanagan. Zaleski says when l he looks at the business r community in Kelowna, he sees many examples of people ill-prepared for e

faith in your vision; having both primary and secondary plans for adjusting your priorities day to day as the business grows, and action. “Nothing happens without action. If you have a great idea or special gift that leads to a business opportunity, have a certain passion for it and the right feeling that you are doing something good for other people, you can be successful,” he said. “If you have a negative attitude where you want to get rich by taking advantage of people, you won’t be successful. Self-sabotage won’t make you feel successful, no matter how much money you are making.” Zaleski says having faith in yourself and your business dream is a step where many entrepreneurs falter, losing sight of the long-term dream in the dream of short-term success. “That is where most people will quit, but you have to look at the obstacles that you confront in your journey as part of that million-piece puzzle you are putting together that will lead you to success.” Zaleski says leadership in business is another

Vehicle crashes into shoe store

STAFF REPORTER

The driver of an Infiniti sedan unexpectedly crashed through the window of Red Wing Shoes Tuesday afternoon. Police said the driver and witnesses said the car “took off” on the elderly

driver. “The occupants of the vehicle said they recently received a recall letter on the vehicle, so we suspect it’s a vehicle defect that caused this,” said Const. Lise Marion. “We’re just very fortunate it was just a building that he hit.”

An employee of Red Wing Shoes said no one was near that part of the store at the time. The occupants of the

vehicle were uninjured.

▼ OUR VIEW

Toronto mayor just like the rest

T

he embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is a politician under siege these days. His own city council is doing everything it can to marginalize his authority after being unsuccessful at having him turfed out of office. The late-night comedians are having a field day with some of the bizarre and, at times, vulgar comments Ford has said in media scrums and on cellphone-recorded videos. While Ford continues to play on his “mayor of the people”

schtick as a reason for hanging on to his job, he has become a walking parody of himself and the joke is on us. What damage that does to the city he represents, if any, remains to be seen, but it certainly leaves Toronto’s city hall in a state of dysfunction. What Ford should have done is take a leave of absence, either when all this first blew up on the heels of evidence involving the mayor that was collected by Toronto police in a drug investigation, or at subsequent multiple jumping off points along

the way. But what is truly disappointing for voters is the realization that what Ford must have represented to many Toronto voters—what many of us in Canada and the U.S. clamour for in our politicians and never see—is authenticity. While Ford may say stupid things and lack the polish of a seasoned politician, he leaves little doubt about who he is. If you want unabashed honesty in a politician, than Ford’s travails over the past two weeks meet the objective. If you find

yourself saying Ford is saying the wrong thing or handling himself badly, then perhaps we really can’t handle raw honesty, or at least an attempt at it, from our elected officials. He is the alternative to politicians who speak to the cameras for appearances and then behind closed doors tell people what they really think. But that aside, Ford has allowed himself to become what he claims to abhor— a politician who thinks he is more important than the job he was elected to do.

Final exam stress serves valuable purpose for students

I

n about two weeks from now colleges and universities across the country will be starting their final exam period. This is when students will write a series of exams to determine whether or not they will either pass or fail a course. It is the most stressful time in the term. Personally, I dislike writing exams because they make me nervous. I am always worried that I’m going to forget everything I’m supposed to remember, my mind will go blank

and I will get zero per cent. When I was going to university in the mid1980s, I decided to take a first-year accounting course. I was so nervous Jane Muskens about writing the final exam that on my way to school I had to stop by the side of the road and vomit. After losing my breakfast, I went and wrote the exam and passed with a 73 per cent mark. Although I had a bad experience writing that accounting exam, the process taught me two important life lessons.

SCHOOL’S IN

I wasn’t going to pursue a business degree and become an accountant (I was obviously destined for some other career), and I was the type of learner who would do better researching and writing papers as opposed to memorizing information and regurgitating it on an exam. My personal experience illustrates why testing plays an important function in education. It helps students realize what they are good at, where they need work, or in my case, careers they should probably not consider. That is why you will find that many schools, mostly community colleges and technical institutes, require students to complete a test be-

fore being admitted into some programs. If you want to go back to school and enter Okanagan College’s adult upgrading program, you must write a skills assessment. Initially some adults are skeptical about having to write this assessment. What they don’t know is that you can’t fail this assessment because it’s not really a test with a pass or fail. The skills assessment helps adults determine the level of upgrading they need. For example, there is no sense putting someone in Grade 10 English when they are clearly capable of completing English 12. On the flip-side, putting some-

one in Grade 12 mathematics when the person needs to start at Grade 10 will only lead to frustration and a fail▼ ing grade. The skills assessment is there to prevent students from failing by placing them in the courses they are most likely to be successful in. Okanagan College’s trades and M apprenticeship office also tests people to make sure they have the necessary e English and math skills to complete a i trades program. These tests are designed to help r t students succeed and graduate. I don’t recall ever meeting anyone who enjoys writing an exam, yet w e p See Muskens A11

To the editor: I have just read the West Kelowna District news letter and was most surprised to see that the latest Gellatly Road improvements phase has been completed. I wonder if the people who draw up these plans only do so from working at a computer, or do they actually walk along the road to really see what is being done? In my mind, there are some very necessary additions to the Gellatly Road improvements that have not yet been included or implemented. There is only one pedestrian crossing from the Cove Resort to beyond the Rotary Beach Park, and that is at the foot of Angus Drive. What about the parents having to park opposite the Marina Beach Park with their children?

▼ EDUCATION

The value of passing exams Muskens from A10 exams and testing play an important role in our society. Can you imagine the chaos on our roads if no one was required to write and take a driver’s test? Or what kind of buildings and roads we would have if engineers, carpenters, electricians, surveyors, technologists, plumbers, etc. didn’t have to write any

exams to receive their certification. For a moment consider the level of expertise our doctors and nurses would have if they were never tested. I may dislike exams but I do recognize how valuable they are and I doubt we could function well without them. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College. jmuskens@okanagan.bc.ca

How are they supposed to cross the road safely? Consider the people coming down Gellatly who want to walk along by the lake, a very busy intersection, but again no pedestrian crossing. Once across the road, there is not a foot path until you enter the walk at the dock. First you have to walk on the road and then either you squeeze between the trees and the fence or risk walking on the grass between the road and the trees, exceedingly difficult and dangerous for an older person or anyone with mobility limitations, also for dog owners. Although the area to the side of the road opposite the lake was hy-

dro seeded, it was not levelled properly and with all the rain falling at that time causing ruts, it is very difficult to walk along on that side of the road safely. With all the new parking places, where of course children will be moving around the vehicles, and with the narrower road space, why is there not a 30-kph speed limit in force? At the moment the road is sign posted as 50 kph, but even that is not adhered to. Some reinforcement of the current speed limit might be of assistance in familiarizing the road users before next years busy summer traffic. N. Taylor. West Kelowna

Premier should be wary ▼ WEST KELOWNA Gellatly Road improvement plan of LNG bandwagon is lacking some necessities To the editor: Re: Premier Christy Clark’s LNG opinion column in Nov. 14 Capital News. It appears that every MLA and government representative can’t jump on the LNG bandwagon fast enough. As custodians of our provinces environment, I only hope they have done some research before they hand our environment over to the multinationals. Because as everyone knows, multinationals have our best interests at heart. I challenge Christy Clark, every member of  our government and every proponent of LNG to spend just one hour of their time and watch a documentary called Gasland. I acknowledge that it may contain some bias or one-sided arguments, but the premise of the documentary is true.   We are entering into agreements with multi-national corporations that don’t care about British Columbia, our residents or our environment. Their only concern is profit and executive bonuses. The damage that will occur is irreversible. I am pleading for our government to please take great care in these decisions. My children will need clean water and clean air far more than a paycheque for selling our collective souls to a multi-national corporation. If you have a concern regarding these projects, I implore you to contact your government representatitive and make your feelings known. There is no second chance once this begins.

▼ BUSINESS PROGRAM

City budget plan also looks for social returns on investments

The WINNS of change

Tom Wilson CONTRIBUTOR

The City of Kelowna’s 2014 budget will be reviewed and debated by city council Dec. 12, when the mayor and city councillors make the decision on funding for projects and services. Before it gets to the last cut, the document goes through a series of reviews to look at what makes the most sense for the year—and years —ahead. The objective is to give all citizens the best quality of life we can offer with the resources we have available in any given year. The city operates in a business -like way, but it’s not a business. Like a business, the city looks for financial returns on its investments, but it also looks for social returns on investments. These social investments are just as important to creating a great place to live as capital investments are, because services really influence the quality of life enjoyed by the widest spectrum of citizens. Programs for persons with disabilities at Parkinson Recreation Centre, free skating at Stuart Park, free entertainment in neighbourhood parks, or even the expanding network of bike and walking trails are all services and amenities that make it possible for citizens of all abilities and means to enjoy living in Kelowna.

City grants to encourage cultural pursuits, heritage projects and social agencies are other ways the city invests in building a community that is empathetic and supportive. There will always be segments of our population more focused on financial returns, while others will want more emphasis on services and amenities. The challenge for staff and council is to balance these competing values and interests in the community. An indication of finding that balance is when 96 per cent of citizens surveyed last year said they enjoy a great quality of life in Kelowna. Eighty-one per cent of citizens also said they receive good value for their local tax dollars, well above the 74 per cent average for local governments in B.C. To get great value and quality of life, the city’s financial management strategy is to control the tax demand for infrastructure investments— two-thirds of revenues come from non-taxation sources, such as reserve funds, grants and user fees. Taxes collected from property owners accounted for 29 per cent of the City of Kelowna’s revenue last year. User fees added around 35 per cent more to revenues, while smaller amounts came from grants, reserve funds, and revenue-generating services. Altogether, the city’s revenue was $357 million in 2013, of which

$103 million came from taxation. A full breakdown on where the money comes from and where it goes is available online at kelowna. ca/budget. Balancing a community’s competing interest, diverse values and current appetite for long-term needs is not a simple task. Often, people do not see the proposed long-term objectives, or they’re skeptical about the benefits, or they think the money would be better spent in a different way. More than 100 years ago, when Kelowna’s city council set aside some money to buy land for City Park, not everyone thought it was a good idea. There was opposition and criticism when city council decided to buy the old rail yard lands, which is now home to the Delta Grand Hotel, Waterfront Park and The Dolphins development. Some would have preferred council to save tax dollars and not spend on parks and waterfront boardwalks. Today, many thousands of people would say those were wise investments. On Dec. 12, council will once again be challenged to balance fiscal restraint and community investments to produce a quality of life that continues to make citizens proud to say they live in Kelowna. Tom Wilson is communications supervisor for the City of Kelowna.

T

he federal government recently announced the Western Innovation (WINN) Initiative and I’m hopeful that the entrepreneurial engine that drives our local economy here in the Okanagan will benefit. WINN is a $100 million five-year federal initiative that offers repayable contributions to help small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with operations in Western Canada move their new and innovative technologies from the later stages of research and development to the marketplace. The first application intake period for WINN begins Nov. 9, 2013, and ends on Dec. 8, 2013. Last week I met with a couple of local innovators, including Accelerate Okanagan, and the feedback on WINN was positive. Accelerate Okanagan, in partnership with the federal government’s Department of Western Economic Diversification (WD), also held a WINN Initiative Info Session, which I understand was well-attended. WINN came about as a result of our Government’s consultations with western businesses and entrepreneurs in an effort to find ways to address the gaps identified in the Canadian innovation process, gaps that slow down getting great ideas to market.

MP’S REPORT

Ron Cannan The WINN Initiative is also consistent with the Jenkins Report recommendation to support industry through innovation programs and to redeploy funds to help small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) grow into larger, competitive firms. If you would like to learn more about the initiative, please go to www. wd-deo.gc.ca or contact the WD BC regional office at 604-666-6256. Also on the innovation front is a growing movement called social innovation. There are many definitions of social innovation but essentially, it involves mobilizing partnerships between non-profits, charities, social enterprises, and business to find solutions to our most pressing social challenges. Since 2011, the government has signaled its support for social innovation initiatives to help community organizations develop and implement innovative ideas for social problems. This October, in a keynote speech at the Social Enterprise World Forum,

Mauve Friday is Coming. Black Friday will never be the same.

Mauve Friday is Coming. Black Friday will never be the same.

Jason Kenney, federal Minister of Employment and Social Development, highlighted the importance of social innovation in addressing social challenges in Canada. He noted that for too long governments have imposed solutions to Canada’s social development challenges, while ignoring the innovative and successful approaches being developed in local communities and the private sector. In fact, efforts to encourage and create vital links between community organizations and the private sector are already happening here in the Okanagan. Tonight, organizations and individuals from across the Okanagan Valley will be pitching their creative ideas for making positive social change at an event hosted by the Okanagan Changemakers, a non-profit organization focused on solving social problems through collaboration, mentorship and action. Highlighting some of the best For-Profit, Non-Profit, Established Registered Charity and Youth Led initiatives, this event will provide participants with the opportunity to get together with like-minded social entrepreneurs to talk about social enterprise. Organizers promise some good food, live music, and inspiring stories to get the social entrepreneur ideas flowing. Proceeds from the event will go to supporting year round programming and mentorship for social cause organizations. For more info please go to www.okanaganchangemakers.com. The Okanagan is home to some of the best and brightest entrepreneurs in Canada who are leading the way to a more innovative economy. Not only are they driving the local economy toward job creation, they are also finding solutions to our most pressing social challenges. Their dedication to succeed is ensuring a better quality of life in our communities and its proof once more that the Okanagan is one of the best places to live in Canada. Ron Cannan is the Conservative MP for Kelowna-Lake Country. ron@cannan.ca

Last year, she received the Ernest and Irene Dayton LPN Tuition Bursary, designed to assist students in financial need. “This year’s award is helping with the added expense of childcare for my six- and seven-year-old,” she said. “I received a student loan, but that just covered my tuition. “This means my husband and I are not stressing about money, on top of school, and taking care of our family. Receiving an award like this really means a lot.” Over the years, numerous organizations and individuals have established memorial awards, scholarships, and bursaries, including groups like the Real Estate Foundation, Applied Science Technologists and Techni-

▼ ENERGY DIET

Marrying home renovations and energy upgrades

Renovations seem predestined when you are recently married and living in a bungalow built in 1963. While some household upgrades focus solely on making a home look better, incorporating energy efficiencies while you are renovating can make your home more comfortable and save you energy dollars in the long run. “We are interested in starting some renos and after finding out about the rebates being offered, we figured we should look at ways to improve energy efficiency while we are at it,” said Kelowna homeowner and newlywed Russ Brandt. “Our primary energy concern is reducing our heating bill.” The Brandts have opted to take advantage of a new FortisBC program called the Okanagan Energy Diet. The program offers participants a discounted energy assessment, energy saving products installed directly in their homes, hands-on help applying for up to $6,000 worth of rebates, and if eligible, financing

CERTIFIED energy auditor Gilles Lesage measures and records energy efficiency from attic to basement. options to make energy efficient improvements in their homes. By doing the energy audit now, the Brandts can find out where there are opportunities for energy efficiency improvements while they are planning for other renovations. Gilles Lesage, the certified energy advisor assigned to the Brandts’ home says that, “there has never been a better time to sign up for an energy audit.” Lesage adds that for only $35, “the cost of the evaluation is minimal compared to what it usually costs.” An audit only takes about an hour and a half

for the average home and everything from the attic to the basement is measured and noted for energy performance. Using those measurements and observations of the mechanical and insulation systems in the home, standardized software generates an EnerGuide rating. The rating tells homeowners how efficient their house really is. The blower door test —a fan mounted on an exterior door opening to measure the home’s rate of air leakage—shows that the Brandts’ home is letting cold air in and warm air out. The auditor inspects

the insulation and finds that more is required in the attic and wall spaces to help reduce air leakage. Brandt feels the attic should be “cheap and easy” to insulate in conjunction with their other planned renovations. As part of the assessment at the Brandt’s home, Lesage produces a full report with other suggested energy efficiency upgrades, including a savings sheet that details an estimated return on each of the energy investments.

OUR PRIMARY ENERGY CONCERN IS REDUCING OUR HEATING BILL. Russ Brandt, Kelowna homeowner

If the Brandts decide to move forward with energy efficiency upgrades, they will have access to a FortisBC energy

coach who will help them access the multitude of financial rebates that are available through FortisBC and the provincial LiveSmartBC program. With all this good energy advice, the Brandts know exactly which home upgrades will improve their home’s EnerGuide rating and reduce their monthly heating bills. That’s a pretty good place to start for home renovations and for their happily ever after. The City of Kelow-

na is a municipal partner in FortisBC’s Okanagan Energy Diet. The program helps meet the City’s community goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 33 per cent by 2020 and also helps Kelowna residents save energy dollars in their homes.

Reading, writing and rhythm as singer tours local schools Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It might seem counterintuitive to hold one’s tongue in a concert, but when your audience is in Grade 9, or maybe Grade 7, it’s advisable. This is what Joshua Hyslop, a Vancouver-based singer/songwriter touring the local school system learned in his first two days on the job here. “I’m used to dark rooms, more of a seedy bar scene,” he said. “I’ve never played a high school before this. I’ve never played 25 shows in 10 days. We don’t know what age we’ll be playing to, they just bring down different sets; it totally switches up the dynamic.” Unlike those who make the effort to come out to his concerts, this audience is also just happy to be ushered into the gym away from more time in the classroom. They may not have heard his music, let alone made a choice to see him perform, so he’s got to put in a top-tier performance to impress, he feels. A few months ago he was in Surrey doing an open showcase for book-

ing agents and a number of high school teachers looking for talent to expose their students to. And the 25-year-old singer/songwriter was picked. Hyslop was raised in a Christian household and his music, while marketed as indie folk, draws heavily on Christian themes. From his song Hallelujah to Where the Mountain Meets the Valley, his melodic voice fits the lyrics—often reminiscent of gospel music—like a glove; but he’s never aiming for Christian content. “I think I struggle daily with whether I believe it or not,” said Hyslop, when asked about his religious roots. To his mind, he writes about relationships, social interactions between friends, whatever inspires him in the moment and, if it comes out with a hint of Christianity, he figures it’s just his upbringing shining through. Somewhat ironically, the young man picked to present music to the local school system has no formal musical education and figures this might be an asset. On one hand, without knowing the language of music, he initially had trouble even telling his ac-

more experienced and vicious. Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta. Also returning is Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci and Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland. New to the series is Academy Award-win-

ner Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Golden Globe-winner Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone. I purposely mentioned the awards some of the stars in the cast have won because it is notable the strong talent that The Hunger Games movies are attracting. Not only is the cast impressive, but the talent behind the cam-

era includes Academy Award-winning screenwriters Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine) and Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). And while director Francis Lawrence (Constantine, I Am Legend) has not won any movie awards, he did win a Grammy Award for directing Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video.

The other movie opening tonight is Delivery Man. Vince Vaughn stars as a slacker named David Wozniak whose mundane life is turned upside down when he finds out that he fathered 533 children through sperm donations he made 20 years earlier.

BEHIND THE SCREEN

Susan Steen Directed by Alan Taylor, Thor, the Dark World, has spectacular special effects, awesome fight scenes, unbelievably odd and scary characters and surprise twists right to the end. The legend of Thor is deeply rooted in myth – as the Norse god and eldest son of Odin and his

wife Frigga, he was one of the best loved gods who found himself in trouble often for acting first and thinking later.. but hey, when you have a big hammer, you just do what you have to do. In mythology, when the ancients saw lightening flash across the sky, they thought it was Thor fighting the giants and hunting the trolls. According to legend, his wife’s name was Sif, so possible poetic license was used in the movie, as Jane Foster is the love interest and Sif is just a character in the show. This film is really

Doug Deschner inducted into lacrosse hall of fame Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

A successful career both on the field and in the box has earned Kelowna’s Doug Deschner a place in the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Deschner, who played the sport at both the national and international

levels, was officially enshrined at the CLA’s induction ceremony Nov. 9 in Burnaby. “It’s really about being honoured by your peers, and going into the hall with players you idolized,” said Deschner, 51. “To be included in the same category as players you looked up to, is very

humbling.” As a youngster growing up on the Lower Mainland, Deschner dreamed of one day playing field lacrosse at the NCAA level. That chance came in 1982 when he was offered a scholarship at the University of Baltimore, where he played for the next three seasons. Deschner was a pioneer of sorts, becoming one of the first B.C. products to complete his degree while playing field lacrosse at an American university. “Getting a scholarship to play field lacrosse was a great opportunity for me, one of the highlights,” said Deschner. In box lacrosse, Deschner won two Mann Cup titles during his career—in 1988 with the Brooklin Redmen in Ontario, and in 1989 with the New Westminster Salmonbellies. In 1990, Deschner played on the national men’s field lacrosse team and was a member of the Canada’s silver-medal winning side that year at

the world championships in Australia. After moving to the Okanagan in 2003, Deschner shared his expertise with local associations, serving as Kelowna’s field lacrosse co-ordinator. He also coached Team B.C. at the U19 level, and led the Kelowna Minor Lacrosse Association U17 team to a silver medal at provincials in 2007. Longtime local builder and coach Dan Wray said Deschner’s arrival in Kelowna was a big boost for lacrosse in the valley. “It was awesome to have him come here, to share his knowledge of the game, and to mentor us for the last 10 years,” said Wray, the commissioner of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League. “He helped the field lacrosse program here immensely.” Deschner remains active in the sport from an organizational perspective and currently serves as a board member with the Canadian Lacrosse Foundation.

Injury sidelines Rockets’ defenceman Mitchell Wheaton Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Rockets snuck out of Kent, Wash. Tuesday night with two points and their ninth straight win, but the victory came with a bit of a price. Defenceman Mitchell Wheaton will be lost to the WHL club for an

indefinite period after suffering an upper body injury in the third period of a 4-3 win over the Seattle Thunderbirds. Wheaton was chasing down the puck when he was checked into the boards behind the Rockets’ net by Seattle forward Robert Lipsbergs. After being tended to by medical staff for about

15 minutes, Wheaton was stretchered off the ice and taken to a Seattle hospital to be examined. The 6-foot-5 defenceman made the trip back to Kelowna Tuesday night on the team bus. When all was said and done, head coach Ryan Huska said the Rockets were grateful the injury wasn’t more severe.

“It was a scary situation, to see a player in that position,” said Huska. “You try and stay positive and hope for the best. It didn’t turn out to be as bad as we were fearing, so in that way we’re pretty thankful.” Wheaton, 18, missed the last two months of the 2012-13 regular season with a shoulder injury, be-

fore returning for the playoffs. The Sherwood Park, Alberta native was selected in the fifth round of the 2013 NHL entry draft by the Detroit Red Wings. Meanwhile, Huska said Wheaton’s size and skill will be missed, but thanks to the Rockets’ depth on the blue line the club should be able to make the necessary ad-

justments. Huska said defenceman Jesse Lees, who has been sidelined since October with a hand injury, was due to return to the lineup this week. The Rockets return to action Friday when they travel to Tri-City. Kelowna’s next home game is Nov. 30 against Kamloops.

Warriors down rival Silverbacks

ANDREW DEANS/WEST KELOWNA WARRIORS

WEST KELOWNA WARRIORS’ forward Jordan Masters controls the puck in behind the Silverbacks net in BCHL action Tuesday night in Salmon Arm.

After a four-game BCHL losing streak, the West Kelowna Warriors have righted the ship with back-to-back wins. On Tuesday night in Salmon Arm, Jason Cotton and Matt Anholt each scored twice to pace the Warriors to a 6-2 victory over the Interior Division-rival Silverbacks. Taylor Graham and Ambrose Firkus also scored in the win, as the Warriors jumped out to a 4-0 lead just 15 minutes into the game. Andy Desautels was sharp in goal for the Warriors making 28 saves. The game featured the Warriors’ debut of defenceman Zane Schartz. Making his West Kelowna debut after a trade Monday with the AJHL’s

Brooks Bandits, the Plano, Texas native was thrilled to be traded to the Warriors and eager to get onto the ice with his new club. “The sooner I could get in the lineup, the quicker I could make an impression,” said Schartz. “You can never have enough puck-moving defencemen,” Warriors head coach/GM Rylan Ferster said of the deal, also pointing to Schartz’s heavy shot which should help a struggling Warriors power play. “You have to have that threat to start from the back, and now we have that on two units.” With the victory, the Warriors sit tied with Salmon Arm for fourth in the division, though West Kelowna has games in hand on most teams in the division. A busy week continues when the Chilliwack Chiefs make their lone visit of the season to Royal LePage on Friday. The Warriors then visit Vernon on Saturday.

Kelowna rang up 32 first-half points then cruised to its 12th straight win. The Sun Devils who lost a key player, Hunter Deeson, due to injury in the first half were unable to bounce back from a shaky start. “It was a tough game today. We started poorly and could not recover,” said coach Paul Huey, who was proud of his team’s effort, despite the loss. “They composed themselves, never gave up and showed their fighting spirit. More than half of our starters on defence and offence were first year players and as hard as it was to lose they all know the Sun Devils will be hard to beat next year.” Meanwhile, the Kelowna Lions peewee team saw its season end Sunday in the SIFC final, losing 22-0 to the Vernon Magnums.

Once again, there wasn’t much to choose between the top two teams in B.C. A girls high school volleyball. In Saturday’s Okanagan Valley final, the Immaculata Mustangs edged out the rival Kelowna Christian Knights in five gripping sets. Immaculata won the opening set 26-24, only to see the Knights rebounds with 25-20 and 25-23 wins to take a 2-1 lead. But the Mustangs responded with a 25-20 win in game four, then a 15-13 verdict in the decisive fifth set to win the match. In the end, Immaculata had outscored KCS 109-107. “Due to injuries to

starting power Gemma Davis and a game time injury to middle Emily Haber, the win this weekend was nicest because it was a total team effort,” said Mustangs assistant coach Stephen Caddy. “From back row passing to coming in for service because of injuries, the girls truly won this weekend as a team.” Knights coach Rob Smith was also proud of his team’s effort and called the valley final “a real preview of provincials.” The Mustangs and Knights will play in Duncan at the B.C. championship, which goes Nov. 28 to 30.

Okanagan titles for Owls volleyball

The KSS Owls will head into the provincial boys AAA volleyball championship late this month as the top seed in both the Okanagan and all of B.C. The No. 1-ranked Owls captured the valley title on Saturday with a 3-1 victory over the rival and host Mt. Boucherie Bears in a closely-contested final. “Both teams played very well andall the games were exciting to watch,” said Owls coach Mike Sodaro.

Owls’ power Devon Cote was named the most outstanding player at valleys, while KSS had several key efforts en route to the gold. “Captain Liam Duncan led the Owls with his great serving and Jory Dickie’s passing kept improving from game one to game four,” added Sodaro. “Eli Risso led the team with his great setting and hustle.” John McParland’s Bears, who are ranked fourth, also earned a berth

at the provincial championship thanks to their second-place showing. The B.C. boys AAA volleyball championship will go Nov. 27 to 30 in Kelowna.

GOLD FOR KSS GIRLS

The KSS Owls made it seven straight Okanagan Valley girls AAAA titles, defeating South Kamloops in Saturday’s final in Rutland. It was a tight match from the first serve, with KSS winning in five sets, including 15-13 in the de-

ciding game. Libero Kennedy Snape and power hitter, Grace Freiheit were named to the tournament all-star team. Six other Owls earned honourable mentions: Aiden Lea, Jolene Lutz, Quinci Birker, Tessa Neil, Alexa Eger and Aly Benson. “We have a very balanced team this year,” said Owls coach Tony Sodaro. The Owls will be in Penticton Nov. 28 to 30 for the B.C. AAAA girls championship.

NEWS ▼ INSURANCE EXPIRATION

Causing a crash while uninsured leaves few excuses G

o directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.00. I don’t remember if those stark words are printed on a “Chance” or “Community Chest” card, but I do remember them being cold, hard words when I sat around the Monopoly game as a youngster. Those words represent a certainty and finality that we don’t see much of in our world. Most consequences have flexibility, or “wiggle room.”Fines can be disputed. Criminal charges can be defended (yes, even by the guilty) and the sentence will take personal factors into account so as not to be unfairly harsh. Even though your mortgage says that you forfeit your house if you miss a mortgage payment, there are lots of protections in place that allow you to bring the mortgage into good standing or refinance with another R financial institution.  Even if you can’t re-

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott finance, the mortgage company has to sell your house for fair value and gets no more than they are owed. Look at the flexibility of consequences to senators who steal money from the Canadian people and a “zero tolerance” Toronto mayor who purchases and “does” drugs. There is an exception to the flexibility of consequences that could result in financial ruin. It comes if you fail to renew your vehicle insurance and cause a crash while you are uninsured.  You might as well have pulled that Monopoly card.  It doesn’t matter if your trip to the insurance agent was interrupted by the death of a family member, you needed a

few more days to come up with the money because you just lost your job, or if you had an unexpected stay in the hospital and your plates expired while you were in there. It also doesn’t matter if the typical scenario occurs—i.e. if you simply lost track and didn’t notice that your insurance expired. You will be directly, financially responsible for whatever losses are suffered by your victim. 

Had your insurance been current, your financial responsibility would have been passed on to your liability insurer, ICBC. With lapsed insurance, ICBC will still pay the tab, but they will require you to pay them back. My wife suggested this column topic on learning of an acquaintance who realized she had been driving without insurance for nine months.

How’s that for playing Russian Roulette with your nest egg!? I shouldn’t say that, actually. She might drive like we all should drive, actually paying attention to the road ahead of her so as to eliminate the risk of causing a crash. It has happened to me, too. I blamed my wife who looks after such things in our family (bad, bad Terri…or perhaps I ought to pull up my big boy pants and take some

responsibility), but ICBC wouldn’t have been interested in my excuse. Had I caused a crash while uninsured, that excuse would have fallen on deaf ears. It hasn’t happened since I have been relying on a mobile insurance agent, Morris Sobool, who has become a friend of mine. He keeps track for me. He even comes by to hand deliver my renewal papers and sticker, all at

no extra charge. I recommend finding “a Morris” to look after you, too. Give me a call if you want his number. This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims.  It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice specifically pertaining to your case.

PROSKIW, ANTON C. 1921 ~ 2013

The family of Anton Proskiw is sad to announce his sudden passing on November 14, 2013. He died peacefully in his sleep at Lake Country Lodge and Manor where he lived with his beloved wife Eva. He was born in Myrnam, Alberta on April 5, 1921 and enjoyed a full and wonderful life as a farmer, finishing carpenter and building contractor. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He was happiest in the last few years when he was surrounded by grandchildren or playing with his great grandchildren. He also loved listening to music or watching his Vancouver Canucks. He will be greatly missed by his wife Eva of 68 years, son Dr. Bryan (Judy) Proskiw, daughter Elayne (Warren) Jacobson, five grandchildren; Adam Proskiw, Lora Proskiw Moran (Grayson), Brooke Proskiw Stromsmoe, Justin (Becky) Jacobson, and Lindsay Jacobson. His five great grandchildren; Noah Stromsmoe, Quinten Stromsmoe, Addison Moran, Brynn Moran and Avery Jacobson will especially miss their Gido. Anton is survived by his sister, Mildred Samograd of Edmonton and brother Joe Proskiw, of Vegreville, Alberta. His faith was strong to the very end and he now waits to hear the voice of his Savior on the Resurrection Morning. A funeral service will be held on Monday, November 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm at the Rutland Seventh-day Adventist Church, 130 Gerstmar Road. A private family interment will take place on Tuesday, November 26 at Lakeview Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

TURNELL, PHYLLIS ANNA (NEE OLIVER)

April 8, 1926 – November 10, 2013 It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our Mom, Granny and Great Granny. Phyllis is lovingly remembered by her daughter Patti (Rick) Harper; son Bob (Lorraine) Turnell; grandchildren Michael (Tammie) Skrove, Lori (Ray) Sison, Trent Turnell; 5 great grandchildren; sister Dorothy Marsh; and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her son David Turnell. Phyllis was born and raised in Ladner, BC and moved to Kelowna, BC in 1970 where she passed away peacefully with family by her side. She lived life with joy and enthusiasm. Phyllis enjoyed curling, gardening, knitting, books and online socializing. She was always ready to share a story or a joke. Phyllis was a lifetime member and Past President of the Branch 26 Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary. A Private Family Gathering will be held at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

HNATYSHYN, JOHN 1922 – 2013 John Hnatyshyn passed away peacefully on November 17, 2013 while being comforted by his only daughter, Diane. He was predeceased by his father Max, mother Mary, and four sisters Kay, Rose, Anne and Jewel. John was also predeceased by his wife of 63 years, Anne. He is survived by his only daughter, Diane (Bill) Holloway. John will be missed by his many friends and relatives and especially his Best Bud, Jack. John proudly served his country from 1942 to 1945 as a member of the Winnipeg Grenadiers stationed in the Aleutian Islands. He married Anne on June 15, 1946 in Saskatoon, SK, and began his lifelong career with The Canadian Pacific Railway. Upon his retirement, they moved to Kelowna, BC. In honouring John’s request, no Memorial Service will be held. He will be laid to rest in the Family Niche next to his wife. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

MCILWAINE, BRIAN Brian passed away on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at the age of 73. Survived by his loving wife, Thelda of 32 years; one daughter, Janice Lonnquist (Soren) of Abbotsford; three sons, Glen McIlwaine of Langley, Ian McIlwaine (Margita) of Squamish, Ken Forbes (Elaine) of Revelstoke; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Brian was a past Master of the Masonic Lodge. No service by request. Donations may be made to the Masonic Hall, 1564 Pandosy St., Kelowna, BC V1Y 1P4.

TINGSTAD, LORNE ELMER July 17, 1935 - November 18, 2013 Lorne was born in Valleyview Alberta, but moved to Vancouver Island when he was young. His life-long career as a logger saw him live in many towns in the East Kootenay Trench and he and his family eventually settled in Westbank in 1972 where he spent the remainder of his years. Lorne loved spending life in the outdoors, especially if it involved fishing or hunting and was certainly more at home in the bush than in any city. His life long skills as a precision logger also came in handy when, in his later years, he took on the role of “neighbourhood logger” of Pineridge Place. Lorne will be greatly missed by his wife of 57 years, Doreen, his children Ron (Ruth), Julie Hughes (Mick), Kerry (Sheila), Brent (Lori) and his grandchildren, Michael, Andrew, Matthew, Laura, Colby, Ken, Nolan and Jamie, as well as his many brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends. Service will be held Saturday November 23 @ 1:30pm at the Emmanuel Church in Westbank. The family gives their heart felt thanks to Dr. Verster and all of the Lorne’s loving caregivers at Cottonwoods and Brookhaven. Lorne loved all of you. In lieu of flowers, donations to Brookhaven or Cottonwoods are greatly appreciated.

▼ AGILITY FUEL SYSTEMS

Alternate fuel firm sets up shop in Kelowna T he natural gas industry continues to gain momentum with ever-increasing political and consumer interest. Agility Fuel Systems has opened a new assembly facility at 100-2092 Enterprise Way (the former Crown packing plant) in Kelowna. Agility is the leading designer and producer of alternative fuel storage and delivery systems for heavy duty trucks, buses, and specialty vehicles. Agility was created by the merger of two companies— FABs, a U.S. company, with expertise in compressed natural gas and liquid natural gas fuel storage systems, and Enviromechs, a local Canadian company with an industry-leading engineering expertise in alternative fuel vehicles. Agility’s systems can be fuelled by compressed and li-

I was given a tour of the new Kelowna plant and it was an exceptional experience to see what this company is producing. Agility provides advice, engineering, installation support and after-market service. The company also manufactures portable refuelling stations used to transport and deliver CNG, hydrogen and other industrial gases. Agility has contracts all

over North America with customer and service center training. Barry Engle is the CEO of Agility and the former CEO of Ford Canada. Locally, Todd Sloan is the vice-president, engineering; Adam Robertson, vice president, operations; Chris Forsberg, chief design engineer; Randy Isaak, plant manager; and Jay Lundquist, production supervisor. Kevin Bourdin has purchased the two Booster Juice outlets in Kelowna at KLO and Gordon and Capri Centre, and a third in West Kelowna at Governor’s Landing. Booster Juice strives to use fresh, healthy products and their goal is to make sure their guests have a great experience with exceptional customer service. They serve freshly squeezed juices with a featured special smoothie every month,

In 2003, she started selling fruitcakes to friends and acquaintances and by 2005 her fruitcakes were being sold in a number of stores. Because her Nuttier Than A Fruitcake Facebook page has taken off and her online sales have

increased, she is getting ever closer to her goal of becoming solely an online mail order business. But for now, her fabulous fruitcakes are still available locally at Discover Wines, Quality Greens and Okanagan Artisan Bakery. The fruitcakes are absolutely delicious and whether you like fruitcake or not, you will like these. Check out the website www.fruitcake.ca or email moni@fruitcake.ca.   Bruce Landry has opened Secret Hair Affair at 101-1289 Ellis St. (beside the Kelowna Community Food Bank).  Landry has 30 years of experience in the hair industry as an advanced color technician.

has travelled and worked in London, San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, along with doing magazine and movie location work. He was voted top colourist by Elle Canada Magazine. His approach to hair colour is to create a natural, believable look to enhance a client’s skin tone, eye colour and life style.

“I recommend Vitamin C and Lysine for Heart Health” W. Gifford-Jones, MD

Fourteen years ago following my own coronary attack I decided to follow the research of Dr. Linus Pauling, Professor Williams Stehbens and Dr. Sydney Bush and take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine. I am turning 90 soon and I am glad I did! Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner, claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams of vitamin C to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Dr. William Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Auckland University in New Zealand emphasized that coronary arteries are under more pressure than any other arteries in the body. They’re under constant pressure while the heart beats 100,000 times every 24 hours, or 37 million times a year, and 2.2 billion times if you live to 70 years of age. Without sufficient vitamin C and lysine this constant pounding causes minute cracks in collagen, resulting in blood clots and possible death, or a weakened artery can break, causing a stroke.

Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proven that vitamin C and lysine can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later new pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries.

The third annual West Kelowna Mayor’s Youth Forum took place at Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary. Local politicians, social workers, teachers and students put their heads together for the two-hour breakfast event to discuss the issues affecting young people. Round table discussions focused on four major topics: Youth safety and security, transportation throughout the community, youth recognition and celebration and communication between the District of West Kelowna and School District 23. Grade 11 MBSS student James Gabriel said

the annual event is an important one for youth to have their voices heard. “We had good communication today,” said Gabriel. “I think it’s really good because it included the youth who think things need to be improved and then it (included) the people who can make those improvements.” Gabriel said a lot of strong ideas came out of his table’s discussion at the event, including the implementation of a community awards ceremony for youth, which would recognize achievements other than athletic skills and academic grades. He added the district would likely be able to better connect with students if they had a smartphone app that sent relevant information directly to students’ phones. Other students commented on the need to increase security at bus

WEST KELOWNA MAYOR Doug Findlater speaks to students at the West Kelowna Mayor’sYouth Forum Wednesday.

some of the things youth have been asking for over the years, including: CNR Wharf improvements, an RCMP school liaison officer, preliminary work on a new skatepark and 2014 RapidBus transit with new bus exchanges. Findlater said the lack of mental health services on the Westside is an issue the district has heard about several times, from various groups. “We’ve heard from Joanne Konnert and the health centre report that we need better mental health service; we’ve heard from Elizabeth Fry Society and their study of women’s services; now we’ve heard from the youth community,” said Findlater. “This is not a service provided by West Kelowna, nor should it be…but

I think we have to go to work and start lobbying for a position through the provincial government.” He noted communication has been one of the toughest issues to deal with. “It’s difficult getting the word out…the website is there, lots of media releases, we have a Twitter account and a Facebook account,” said Findlater. “There’s some obligation on the part of the general public and the general youth population to seek the information out. I think that’s what we have to work on as well: Telling people where they can go for information. And then they better go get it if they want to know what’s going on.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

Extreme makeovers for local women Wade Paterson June Swenson used to hold her left hand in front of her mouth when she spoke, to prevent people from seeing her teeth. During her interview with Capital News, her hand habitually moves in front of her mouth from time to time. Almost instantly, she realizes what she’s doing, drops her hand and smiles. Swenson and Ginette Wheeler were recipients of a “Sensei-tional Makeover” earlier this year, and have spent about five months receiving various treatments and services provided by several local businesses. Wheeler said she first read about the contest in her staff room at work. “My roots are a smalltown country girl…before (moving to West Kelowna), I used to be able to go

to the cornerstone in my pyjamas,” said Wheeler. “I just felt like I was a good candidate—I had some things I could (use) help with.” After seeing the contest details on a message board, Swenson asked a friend whether or not she should enter. “My friend said, ‘You’re the kindest, nicest person I’ve ever known. You’re always doing things for everybody else and I’ve never seen you do anything for yourself. Yes you should enter.’,” said Swenson. “So I started my essay out with that, and I told about how I overcame mental abuse in my life…I didn’t have the money to go to the gym…I didn’t smile anymore because my teeth were so bad.” Swenson and Wheeler were selected out of 38 entries by a panel of five

judges who were not associated with the businesses involved in the makeover. “I got off the phone and I just started to cry,” said Swenson. “Then I jumped up and down with joy—I couldn’t believe it.” The extreme makeovers included tens of thousands of dollars of services and products provided by: WestK Hair Salon and Spa, Bella Vita Boutique, Esteem Lingerie, Sensei Laser and Vein Rejuvenation, Ab-stract Fitness, Kwikfit, Okanagan Smiles Dentistry, Jigsaw Clothing, and Lorraine Richmond Leadership Coaching. “It’s been a full 360-degree makeover. It’s not just outside, it’s inside,” said Swenson. She explained leadership coaching has boosted her self-esteem, dentistry work has improved her oral health and she’s now

motivated to continue going to the gym on a regular basis. “I never thought I would say this, but I’m actually going to start training for a run next year, as long as the doctor (permits it).” Wheeler has similar sentiments about the process. “My self-esteem wasn’t bad to begin with, but it’s so much better now,” said Wheeler. “I’m a mother; I’m a role model. I have 19- and 18-year-old daughters, so I need to have a positive outlook. When you don’t feel good about yourself, I think, as a mother, you don’t realize how that affects your children.” A grand reveal gala event was held at The Cove in West Kelowna last Saturday, where Swenson and Wheeler’s before and after pictures were shown. Proceeds from the event went to the

West Kelowna requesting qualifications for new civic centre The District of West Kelowna has issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) from proponents interested in designing and building the West Kelowna Civic Centre Project in Westbank Centre. The RFQ is expected to result in the creation of a shortlist of up to three proponents, who will be asked to take part in a Request for Proposals (RFP) process, expected to begin in early 2014.

The district currently operates offices out of 2760 Cameron Road—a community hall at the Mount Boucherie Complex—as well as offices on Elliott Road and Bartley Road. In 2012, an architectural firm was hired to review the current office space and analyze future requirements. The study found that the current facility was at capacity.

The district conducted a market sounding exercise beginning in March, inviting stakeholders in the community to respond to a series of considerations for the development of the Municipal Hall/ Civic Centre. On June 18, council agreed that options for a future civic centre be investigated in the Westbank area of the municipality. Through the RFQ
