The Penticton Community Arts Society is convinced the Penmar Theatre still has many years of life still left in it. Jennifer Vincent, co-founder of CoWork Penticton and a director of the society, explained the group’s plans to make the theatre an entertainment hub again, restoring it not just to its former glory, but as a centre for a wide range of community entertainment. Vincent was joined Thursday by fellow society directors Kerri Milton, executive director of the Downtown Penticton Association and former manager of the Penmar, and Jim Morrison, principal of Wildstone Construction and owner of the theatre, Thursday, to announce their plans for the old theatre, which closed when the Landmark Cinema 7 opened a year ago. “I know in my heart this is great for Penticton. We need the facility,” said Morrison. “You will be amazed come the end of April what it is going to look like and what we can do with it.” The first step is to reunite two of the theatre’s four auditoriums, which will result in a theatre of approximately 350 seats. It’s also the first step in a plan that will see the auditorium restored to its original size in years to come, bringing it up to 650 seats. “The result is a facility that is usable for DREAM TEAM — Jennifer Vincent, cofounder of CoWork Penticton, consults with DPA executive director Kerri Milton and Penmar owner presentation of movies, live music, live the- Jim Morrison, prior to announcing the restoration of the theatre.

Union says dispute prolonged power outage with past incidents. FortisBC spokesperson Joyce Wagenaar said in a statement the company sent non-unionized managers from Oliver and Kelowna “to assist in restoring service.” She noted, though, that the unionized workers who would have responded are based in Oliver too. Russell suggested the company’s response time was further slowed by the supervisors being out of practice. “There’s a lot of managers out doing our work, without a doubt, but we bring more to the table as far as skills, system knowledge and everything else, because we’re living and breathing it all the time.” Russell noted the lockout is also

Interior, such as power linemen and meter readers, who’ve been off the job for nearly five months. The City of Penticton operates the electrical utility here, but buys power from FortisBC, which owns the Westminster substation where the Nov. 15 outage was triggered. According to the city, a bird flew into the main feed at the substation around 6:30 a.m. and knocked out power to thousands of customers. Most had service back by 9 a.m., although some not until 11 a.m. City spokesperson Simone Blais said no one was available for an interview this week to discuss FortisBC’s response to the outage, but that she’d been told it was “on par”

Power could have been restored more quickly following a widespread outage last week in Penticton if FortisBC’s unionized employees were on the job, according to a union representative for lockedout workers. “We would have had more people, so you’ve got to believe our response time would be better than what Fortis’s is right now,” said Rod Russell, business manager for Local 213 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

taking a physical toll on the nonunion replacements workers. A manager in Kelowna suffered a broken leg Nov. 1 when the crane truck he was using to off-load a transformer became unbalanced, prompting the man to jump from the truck deck to the pavement two metres below, according to Russell. The injury, Russell said, likely resulted from him being unfamiliar with the equipment. “We know there’s been a lot of things that have gone on, and unfortunately they’ve finally managed to hurt somebody,” Russell said. “We’re worried about someone being seriously injured or killed. Our jobs are dangerous.”

Megan Johnston, a spokesperson for WorkSafeBC, confirmed details of the accident, but said the investigation is ongoing. Wagenaar said the company has reviewed the incident and determined “all safety requirements were adhered to.” “This was our first operations injury since the labour disruption began on June 26. Overall, with managers completing the work, our safety record has improved during this labour dispute,” she continued. There are no contracts talks scheduled between the two sides. Union members have been without a contract since Jan. 31 and have already rejected three offers.

Efforts to persuade Canada Post to consider offering financial services were returned to sender by local politicians. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is in the midst of a campaign seeking to drum up support for the Crown corporation to expand into business lines like banking and insurance in order to shore up its balance sheet. The pitch was delivered Thursday to a committee of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, which promptly dispatched a request to adopt motions in support of the plan. “Changes to postal service affect the way we communicate with our constituents and that sort of thing, but in terms of starting to tell Canada Post how to run their business, it’s something I feel less comfortable with,” said Wes Hopkin, an RDOS director and Penticton city councillor. The director for rural Hedley, however, suggested the board should support any initiative that might help save rural postal outlets from being closed. “We all know the post offices are often the lifeblood of communities,” said Angelique Wood. “In my community, which is largely elderly, it’s still a very important place for gathering, for information exchange, and every time you lose a service like that it fragments another piece of our society,” she said. Wood was the lone voice in support of the union’s suggested motion, which failed. The board did, however, support a second request from CUPW that asked the RDOS to make a motion insisting next year’s review of the Canada Post charter include avenues for public input. The charter is reviewed automatically every five years, but the union fears the federal government will use the 2014 check-up to slash services. Canada Post on Thursday reported a loss of $129 million in the third quarter of this year due to a continuing decline in the volume of mail it handles.

To spend or not to spend, that is the question Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

It might be the next logical step to take in the downtown revitalization plan, but some Penticton city councillors are concerned about how much it will cost just to get ready to give Main Street a makeover. Anthony Haddad, the city’s director of planning services, laid out a proposal showing $585,000 in consultation and planning over 2014 to come up with a finished design for the 100 to 700 blocks of Main St. That includes $65,000 for more consultation with the public and property owners, $125,000 to design and engineer the proposed parks at either end, and $400,000 for the redesign of the street. Much of that money will be spent before the process gets to the stage of getting property owners along the street to support a 25 per cent contribution via a local area improvement tax, or agreement from the voters to borrow the remaining funds. “We have done quite a bit of work already, we’ve got lots of sketches, we’ve had so much input, wouldn’t it be smart to go and see if we can start that LAI process before we spend $400,000 on the complete design?” asked Coun. Helena Konanz, who was also concerned about spending more on consultation. The city has already done so much of that, she said, with a charrette, surveys, booths at

the Saturday markets and other events. “I can’t imagine we need to spend $65,000 more to find out what the property owners and the public owners want along Main Street,” said Konanz. Coun. John Vassilaki, one of the longest serving councillors, noted he has been through this process before, only to see the plan fail. Those attempts to revitalize Main Street have already cost the city large sums, according to Vassilaki, who didn’t want to see that kind of loss happen again. “We’re going to be spending close to $700,000, which is considerably more money. Back then, the cost of doing Main Street was $7 million, now it is going to be even more than that,” he said. “I am not against the project, I think it is perfect for our downtown. We have to be very cautious because of the amount of money that has to be spent.” Haddad explained the design work needs to be done in order to have an accurate cost estimate to take to the landowners and discuss the contribution process. “We can’t turn up with a plan we thought was appropriate without going and asking them first what was the best solution to their needs as a business owner,” he said. Haddad explained the investment in Main Street would provide a significant return to the city. The downtown core population is about 6,500 people, accounting for 20 per cent on Penticton’s population, plus about 3,000 peo-

ple employed in the downtown area. That means, according to Haddad, that any money spent enhancing downtown will have a significant impact. He added that on top of the population, the downtown core is the centre of tourism activity. “It’s important to invest in our centrepiece,” he said.“Each of the steps requires significant public consultation, even more detailed than we got into during

the downtown planning process.” Council will consider the proposal as part of the upcoming 2014 budget process. If the planning process is successful, work on the actual street improvements would begin in 2015 and, according to Haddad, could be funded from a variety of sources, including capital funds, grants, the landowner contribution or a borrowing bylaw.

Chief Kruger says Boonstock organizers have long way to go Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

There is a lot of work ahead for the Boonstock Music and Arts Festival according to Penticton Indian Band Chief Jonathan Kruger following a meeting earlier this week. “The meeting went really well between RCMP, our council and Boonstock,” said Kruger. “The outcome of the meeting was that we are drafting a checklist of things that need to be done by Boonstock and a timeline for that checklist. Boonstock will also be holding a meeting with our community members.” In October, Boonstock organizers announced they would be relocating Western Canada’s biggest music festival from Gibbons, Alta. to locatee land within the Penticton Indian Band. The announcement was called “premature” by Kruger who said it has not received the backing of PIB council. He said there has been mixed reaction to Boonstock among community members. “I think the announcement was a marketing plan to introduce it, but it has caused some controversy. There has to be

a whole bunch of things in place before the event can be announced,” said Kruger. The chief said the feeling he received from Boonstock is that they are confident they can complete the criteria the PIB will be giving to them which includes a safety plan, parking plans, emergency plans, and where the staging is going to be among other things. “It is really detailed on what has to be done. Just looking at it shows there is a lot of hard work that needs to be done to create an event,” he said. Boonstock representatives will be meeting with the PIB and RCMP, this time with the community members in attendance, on Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. in the community hall. The meeting is not open to the general public and is for PIB members only. “We have to make sure our community is comfortable with this,” said Kruger. “We want the community to know what is being planned and what council is doing with safety concerns. If there is a huge concern from community members and they don’t like the idea then that will be a pretty clear message.” Penticton Mayor Garry Litke was also caught off-guard

in October by the announcement. He spoke with Boonstock organizer Colin Kobza and said he must remove a comment on the event website that said it had the support of the City of Penticton. Litke said he was unaware there was a meeting earlier this week with PIB officials and RCMP. The mayor said Supt. Kevin Hewco of the Penticton RCMP detachment previously indicated there wouldn’t even be officers available August long weekend to support Boonstock’s security plan because it is already so busy in the height of tourist season. “Supt. Hewco said (Kobza) might even have to go all over Western Canada to get officers that might be willing to come,” said Litke. “Our other concern is getting people in and out. Looking at the YouTube video from last year’s event they had gridlock on a major highway out of Edmonton. We can’t have gridlock on the Channel Parkway, how could emergency vehicles get around? There has to be a traffic management plan.” Kobza deferred questions to Barb Haynes, former general manager of Challenge Penticton, who he said is handing all communication channels. Haynes did not return phone calls before press deadline.

There is no worse thing than not having shelter when the temperature on Penticton streets starts dropping below freezing. To help out when temperatures start dropping into the double-digits below zero, the province has come up with funding for up to 20 extreme weather shelter spaces this winter. “These 20 spaces will provide a safe place for shelter during extreme weather,” said Dan Ashton, MLA for Penticton. “Our government understands the life-saving importance of working with communities to develop housing strategies and programs.” The funding increases the shelter spaces available when weather conditions begin to threaten the health and safety of individuals living on the streets. Since 2009, the Salvation Army and Cheers Church have operated Penticton’s Cold Snap Inn each winter, opening up extra shelter spaces when temperatures drop below -10 C. “That’s cold when you are out there on the streets at night,” said Joey Cyr, the Salvation Army’s community services supervisor. “We continue to see lots of people come through the doors. As temperatures drop, there is definitely a need.” Extreme weather shelters supplement the more than 1,800 permanent, year-round shelter beds available in B.C., more than double the number of beds that were available in 2001. Provincewide, homeless outreach teams helped more than 6,700

individuals access stable housing last year. “There are always people that are in a hard spot and people with mental health issues is huge. I know between us and the (South Okanagan Similkameen) Brain Injury Society, it keeps us pretty busy,” said Cyr. They have had as many as 16 people, he continued, including men, women and young people. Generally, Cyr said, it’s a quiet shelter.

“I’ve worked that shift a few times. They are cold and hungry, we feed them a hot meal, give them a place to sleep and it goes pretty well,” said Cyr. “It starts at 8 p.m. and if you are out on the streets all day and cold, it drains you.” The B.C. government is providing up to $1.5 million this winter to make more than 1,100 temporary emergency shelter spaces available in over 80 communities.

Experts share worry for climate change Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Extreme weather events like those behind this summer’s Alberta floods are the new norm and highlight the need for governments here to take climate change seriously, a water expert warned this week. Robert Sandford told a public lecture at Okanagan College in Penticton that climate change is most pronounced as “destabilization of historic weather patterns.” “What we’re experiencing more and more widely are floods, droughts and fires in the same (water) basin in the same year,” said Sandford, who leads Canadian efforts under the United Nations Water for Life initiative and has written several books on the country’s water issues. He also met this week with government officials during his visit organized by the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen in partnership with the Okanagan Basin Water Board and the RBC Blue Water Project. Sandford said many effects of climate change stem from the shrinking polar ice cap, which has in turn weakened the jet stream that moves weather systems across the continent. “In the absence of a stronger jet stream, high-pressure systems settle in and don’t go away. The temperatures rise, evaporation increases, things dry out and things catch fire,” he said. And warmer air holds more water, Sandford continued, which aids in the creation of “atmospheric rivers” that can dump huge

volumes of rain for days at a time as happened in Alberta in June. “In my view, there is still time, there is still room to move if we wish to preserve what we have ecologically and economically in places like the Okanagan. My caution, however, is it would be wise to get moving,” he concluded. “The thing you want to avoid is ending up having your wealth as a people — as individuals and as governments — taken up

by disaster relief and not having that money available to prepare and adapt for the future.” Scott Smith, a soils scientist at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre in Summerland, spoke prior to Sandford and said data he’s compiled show the Okanagan is trending towards warmer winters with less intense cold. He agreed that climate change will result in more precipitation, but likely in the form of more extreme events that could put Penticton at risk since much of the city is built on sediment deposited by Ellis and Penticton creeks. “We are sitting on some pretty active landforms and if we were to get some sort of extreme events, these are the kind of landforms that would really feel those events,” Smith said. Penticton Mayor Garry Litke said the scientists’ warnings “affirmed many of the things that we’ve already been acting on” through the city’s climate action committee. “We’ve also been very aware of the earlier snowpack melt and the increased need to build our reservoir capacity,” he said, adding “that doesn’t mean that we’re doing everything right.” For example, he’s trying to persuade fellow RDOS directors to hire a climate action co-ordinator to develop a response plan for the region. “We can see that historically there is a chance we could see three or four years of drought, so we need to be planning for all those events,” Litke said.

Stale data flunks city Recently, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business released its annual report, B.C. Municipal Spending Watch, on the spending habits of municipalities based on their tax revenue. Penticton, it turns out, did not fare well, placing 112th out of 153 municipalities in British Columbia. In fact, Penticton Mayor Garry Litke was surprised by the ranking, especially considering the same organization recognized Penticton for being a business-friendly municipality a few short months prior. On the bright side, the latest report bumped Penticton up 12 spots from the previous year. The report examines tax increases compared with the rate of inflation. Using this benchmark, a communitythat can maintain its budget at last year’s level would receive high praise in the report while one that increased taxes slightly would be less well received. Since 2009, Penticton has worked hard to implement its core services review with city hall adopting austerity measures across all departments. Given the steadfastness of council to pinch every penny, Penticton’s ranking in the CFIB report seems misinformed. After three years without a tax increase, 2011 to 2013, and one of the lowest commercial tax ratios in British Columbia, Penticton should be ranked higher than 112th. The issue, in part, is the report is based on 2011 data. Also weighing Penticton down is the high local government operating costs and their operating PENTICTON WESTERN spending per capita is similar to West Vancouver. Reports and studies such as the one from the CFIB are useful if they result in a careful consideration of public spending. However, it would be a mistake to use a community’s expenditures or tax rate as the sole measure of its financial success or failure. - Black Press

Change in one-child policy unlikely to matter The big news of the week is that China’s one-child policy is being relaxed. After 34 years when most Chinese families were officially limited to only one child, most couples will now be allowed to have two children. The reality, however, is that it will make very little difference because only about one-third of Chinese couples were still living under those restrictions anyway. The one-child limit never applied to ethnic minorities, and in the past 15 years it has rarely applied to people living in rural areas either: couples whose first child was a girl are almost always allowed to have a second child (in the hope that it will be a boy). Controls were stricter in the cities, but if both prospective parents were only children themselves they were exempt from the limit. And people with enough money can just ignore the rules: the penalty for having a second child is just a stiff fine up front

and the extra cost of raising a child who is not entitled to free education. The fines are reported to have raised $2.12 billion for the state coffers last year alone. The net result of all this is that China’s current fertility rate (the average number of children a woman will bear in a lifetime) is not 1.0, as it would be if there were a really strict one-child policy. According to United Nations statistics, it is 1.55, about the same as Canada. Which suggests that most Chinese who really wanted a second child got one. The fertility rate in China had already dropped from 5.8 children per woman in 1970 to only 2.7 in 1978, the year before the one-child rule was introduced. It has since fallen to 1.55, but that might well have happened anyway. For comparison, Brazil’s fertility rate has dropped from 6.0 fifty years ago to 1.7 now without a one-child policy.

by the end of this decade there will be 24 million “leftover” men who will never find a wife. Any sane government would be terrified by the prospect of a huge army of unattached and dissatisfied young men Gwynne Dyer hanging around the Dyer Straits streets after work with nothing much to do.

growth in China: the population’s rapidly rising average age. The big, old generations will be around for a long time, but the younger generations are getting smaller very fast. Indeed, the number of people in the 20-24 age group in China will halve in the next 10 years. This means the dependency rate is going to skyrocket. In 1975, there were 7.7 people in the workforce for every person over 60: by 2050, the ratio will be only 1.6 employed persons for every retiree. No country has ever had to bear such a burden before, but ending the one-child policy won’t get the birth rate back up. The only way China could increase its workforce to lessen the burden is to open up the country to mass immigration. And what are the odds on that?

letters Premier needs to rethink tankers, LNG I am extremely worried about any increase in tanker traffic off our coast. Among many, there are two issues of a dire nature. The first is the insurance industry has said clearly no oil company carries enough insurance to cover the cost of a spill. The other is oil tankers are not the responsibility of oil companies, and they have said that clearly. Their responsibility ends when the tanker leaves harbour. And those tankers deliberately fly the flags of countries like Liberia, they are one-tanker companies and do not have any resources to pay for spills. The federal government gives assurances, but who can believe it, when a real life disaster occurs, it is arguing at length about who should pay for the oil cleanup at Lac Megantic? Frankly that does not inspire confidence at all. More responsible countries, like Germany, are promoting green technology to a large degree. This has not hurt its economy, as can be seen in the way that it has the most successful economy in Europe and is

bailing out other European countries who have been having financial difficulties. I have visited my daughter, son-in-law and little grandsons in Bella Coola, on the B.C. coast and seen the beauty of our west coast. The livelihood of many of their neighbours depends on the sea, those in the fishing and tourism industries, to name two. It only takes the failure of one cotter pin or one moment of inattention, and disaster happens. The storms off our coast are some of the worst anywhere, with 30-metre seas not uncommon. Frankly, I will do anything in my power to stop any increase of tanker traffic off our coast. It will be a long time before technology can offer safe transit for oil, and until then it should stay in the ground. Or at least off the oceans. I am just one voice, but sometimes one voice can work miracles, No amount of propaganda by Enbridge and others in the oil industry can change my mind. Premier Clark’s espousal of LNG is also irresponsible, it is China who will claim

carbon offsets, not us. And, who is to say they will not continue using coal at the same rate with LNG a nice add-on? The other thing I know is that the cost of producing LNG is going to be borne by the taxpayer, in terms of paying for the Site C dam, which is only being built to support LNG development. I have yet to see a good, responsible analysis into the cost of the development of LNG, the fracking, the water pollution, the pipeline cost and so on, and how much the taxpayer is on the hook for. Also, countries like China are developing their own LNG resources, so I can see that we could very well build a dam, build a pipeline, build processing facilities at Prince Rupert and Kitimat, only to find that our gas is not wanted. This seems to me to be a very likely scenario. Please slow down, take a breath, and look at slow responsible growth that takes into consideration both the economy and the environment.

Bikes and scooters a hazard

To say the UN has done nothing and has been a waste of time is to say that the approximately 500 troops (including Korea) who have died under the UN flag gave their lives for nothing. My friends did not die to no purpose. The wars they intervened in did not spread to the rest of the world and our friends and families did not have to deal with the things we saw overseas on our tours. That alone makes the service worthwhile. I fully support the Legion and the work for veterans it does but the facts have to be kept straight. The world can be a rough neighbourhood, thankfully most Canadians don’t have to experience it personally. By the way, in 1988 the Nobel Peace Prize was given collectively to all the troops who did the peacekeeping tours. Anyone who did a tour before 1988 has a share in a Nobel Peace Prize. From the ribbons I saw on Monday, that includes a fair number of people in this town.

fire hall because, “many residents overwinter in the south and therefore would be denied expressing their opinion on this matter.” This month the town announced a public meeting regarding ALR exclusion of the Wish orchard. The above-mentioned reason for postponement was not applied which makes one wonder.

I had an experience where I didn’t realize, because of traffic noise, there was someone on a bike coming up on me and I turned around at the sound from the bike; in doing so I turned almost into the bicyclist. The experience I had with the person on the motorized scooter is that I stopped for a moment on the sidewalk and the person on the scooter was following me so closely that he ran into me with his scooter. I wasn’t seriously hurt but I could have been. These people on these devices perhaps shouldn’t be on the sidewalks or they should be more considerate of the other people, who are using the sidewalks as well. Dana Dyck Penticton

UN Remembrance faulty

As a veteran of three peacekeeping tours I would like to know the source of the information presented during the address at this year’s Remembrance Day ceremonies. Major wars have occurred every 30-50 years with only 21 years between the last two. It has been over 65 years since the end of the Second World War. The United Nations’ objective has never been to bring democracy to the world, it has always been to provide a forum, other than the battlefield, to settle the world’s disputes. To say that it has done no good in its time is completely false. The Korean war was a UN operation. Because of it there is still a South Korea. Canadian troops under the UN flag saved several Cypriot villages from being completely wiped out when Turkey invaded the island in the early 1970s. People in the Canadian sector in Croatia were rebuilding war-damaged housing as soon as fall of 1992. I was there and even have photos to prove it. Many people in the Medak Pocket in 1993 survived ethnic cleansing because Canadian troops engaged the Croatian army in full combat to prevent it. I know this because I was there or I knew personally some of the troops who were there.

Be careful what you wish for

The Town of Osoyoos and the owner of the Wish property orchard are at it again. Both want the 22-acre orchard to be removed from the ALR, in other words de-developed. This has been tried several times before. The owner stands to make a bundle of money. Mission accomplished. The town has already expressed an appetite for taxes from that de-development. Squandering collected taxes is not uncommon in this town. Green space within a town where actual real food is grown is not valued. Terminating nature is not a wise thing to do either. The preference is to cement it over forever. The Town of Osoyoos habitually does not consult nearby neighbours on plans that will ruin their daily existence. There would not be one resident favouring green space changed into an RV hangout for only part of the year. The orchard owner has offered the town a piece of land for a future fire hall. Recently the Town of Osoyoos postponed, until April or May, seeking opinion regarding spending money on the proposed new main

Pot just as profitable as oil

Janet Holder of Enbridge: we all know there’s a bazillion dollars to be made, you could use the exact same argument to legalize pot or prostitution ... sure wish you’d talk about the equally important things like the significant risks of this pipeline in an open and honest manner. You and Stephen Harper are looking and sounding more and more alike. And Stephen is looking pretty desperate and in dire straights right now. Keith Cummings

letters Bike lane leads to vandalism

I am writing this letter in response to all of the comments made about the new bike lane running up Dartmouth Drive. As a resident that is directly affected by this bike lane I did have a problem with it going in front of our house. Knowing it was put there to keep cyclists safe, though, I chose not say anything about it. Today, however, my entire opinion of the bike lane changed and I want the city to remove it from the front of the houses that it currently blocks. At first it was annoying to make our house guests park down the street and walk up to our house

A place to stay forever

It was even more annoying when we were told we would be ticketed if we were to park our own vehicles in front of our own home; so we had to park a block away and walk to them each morning. Now after abiding by all of the city’s rules and regulations over this ridiculous bike lane my car was vandalized last night. If I was allowed to park my car in front of my own home like it has been for the last three years this would have never happened. This bike lane has been the sole cause of my vehicle being vandalized. I am very disappointed the city will place a bike lane, which cyclists

do not even use, in front of houses and make residents park their vehicles elsewhere. Maybe the city would like me to bill them for all of the damages done to my vehicle as it is 100 per cent their fault that this happened. I think a meeting needs to be held right away to reduce the bike lane so home owners can once again park in front of their own houses. I just hope this horrible act of vandalism does not happen to anyone else. Bre Symchuk Penticton

Cycle a year-round option

Penticton has a very good climate and topography for cycling. Many people live on the valley bottom and if we create north-south and east-west bicycle lane connectors there would be great flat routes on which many residents could carry out their activities by bicycle. Years ago I decided that if people in Vancouver could don their rain jackets each day and walk or cycle to work we could surely do it in Penticton. Our winters may be a little colder, but we have far less precipitation to worry about. Cycling year round may not be for everyone, but it is possible to do with some preparation and determination. I find it very satisfying to leave my frost-covered car in the driveway and ride my bike to work in the seven minutes that it would have also taken me scrape, warm-up, drive to work and park my car. I also feel a greater connection to the things around me that our vehicles insulate us from; the biggest one being a more personal contact with neighbours and other cyclists and pedestrians. There are many people who do not feel comfortable cycling in traffic. While we continue to improve driver and cyclist education, the safest thing for communities to do is to provide bike lanes which will encourage more cyclists out on the road. The City of Penticton recognizes that many communities are moving in this direction and have designed a cycling network plan for our city. It may not be ideal for everyone, but it is a very good start and sometimes the benefits of actions are not realized for many years. Keeping an open mind to change is good and change that decreases consumption of fossil fuels and promotes a healthier lifestyle is a goal we should all aim for. Transportation by bicycle is nothing new, it is just a return to something that was once considered an everyday component of life. Laura Harp Penticton

This letter is in regards to the ongoing saga at 555 East Wade Ave. in Penticton. As I intently waited for the talk on this property to happen at the most recent council meeting, I was astonished by the eventual outcome. I honestly thought the bright lights of city council would do right on this one. Much to my dismay the elected officials didn’t listen to the concerns of neighbours and all who expressed concern as they have now decided due

to legal parameters that a demolition permit is in fact not in order, however, a vacant building permit can now be requested by land owners. So let me get this right, the land owners who don’t live in the city and also who have let this property become an eyesore for the past many years have more rights than that of the surrounding neighbours who live near this unsightly eyesore? After numerous calls to the local RCMP and the Penticton Bylaw office, our voices still are not being heard. Does the city carry fire insurance when the adjoining properties become demolished due to the crack heads that call it home burn the place up in one of their drunken stupors as Rob Ford from Toronto would say? In closing, Litke, Konanz and Vassilaki thanks for trying to support the demolition motion, and to the others, good luck come the election time as it’s sooner than you think!

Protect agricultural lands

Along with many others, I am appalled to learn of the recent proposal from your agriculture minister that the Agricultural Land Commission’s mandate be expanded to take economic development priorities into account (specifically those of the oil and gas industry) and some of the land commission’s powers in the north should be handed over to the Oil and Gas Commission. Shockingly, as published in the Globe and Mail, the minister’s proposed changes extend to the whole of the province. The specific proposals are: — Modernize ALC decision-making to reflect government priorities. — Create two ALR areas with different rules. — Change the ALC’s legislative mandate, in one or both ALR areas. — Remove some decisions from the ALC. — Allow community growth applications to be decided by local governments. — Modernize ALC operations by moving the ALC into the Ministry. All this when the world’s food supply is in peril, in a province where less than 5 per cent of the land is arable, and faces constant pressure from industry and developers. Premier Clark, if economic development priorities are of prime importance, I trust you recognize that with its $10 billion a year contribution, our agricultural sector is B.C.’s prime producer of truly renewable energy. The preservation of agricultural land brings economic benefit not only of employment, health, environmental protection and tourism, it also ensures sustainable food supplies for a future threatened by world over-population and climate change. Premier Clark, it is unsettling that the cabinet minister entrusted with this important sector should be the voice suggesting measures to weaken agriculture in our province. I hope the citizens of B.C. can look forward to your firm commitment to strengthen the Agricultural Land Commission, and to the rejection of Minister Pimm’s dangerous proposal.

Ice wine coming in early ASK ABOUT OUR INKJET BUY-BACK PROGRAM!

Winemakers in B.C. are rejoicing with the arrival of sub-zero temperatures in the Okanagan, allowing an early pick of ice wine grapes.

An early cold snap this week turned into a bonus for area wineries planning to make ice wine and spells good news for B.C. wine enthusiasts. Rather than having to wait until into the winter for temperatures low enough to bring the grapes to the right level of sugar, vintners were able to begin harvesting in the wee hours of Thursday morning, one of the earliest ice wine harvests on record. At D’Angelo Estate Winery on the Naramata Bench, owner Sal D’Angelo was out with his crew at 6:30 a.m., collecting grapes for his own ice wine variant, a combination of ice wine and brandy he calls Dolce Vita. D’Angelo wasn’t alone. Wineries from Kelowna through to Oliver were out taking advantage of the early Arctic outflow, which saw temperatures dip to -12 C and create sugar levels in some lots of up to a very high 45 brix. This is one of the earliest ice wine harvests in the Okanagan Valley on record; the others were at Kelowna area wineries on Nov. 5, 2003 and Nov. 19, 2011. But this early ice wine harvest also follows on the heels of an excellent summer growing season, which saw growers in the South Okanagan picking their regular grapes early as well. The combination of an good growing season in the South Okanagan with the blast of sub-zero weather Thursday enabled the grapes to reach the desired aroma and flavour intensity that is so coveted in premium ice wine. At Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin Okanagan, near Oliver, crews started picking their Riesling ice wine grapes at 12:45 a.m., working through to 4:45 a.m. and managing to bring in 14 tonnes of the grapes. “Picking exceptionally early like this is icing on the cake for what has been a stellar year. A hot, dry summer combined with this earlier than normal arctic outflow

TIS THE SEASON FOR EVENTS, GET READY Botox®

SAL D’ANGELO, proprieter of D’angelo Estate Winery, was out early Thursday morning picking grapes for ice wine, thanks to an early blast of arctic air that brought overnight temperatures down to the -10 C range.

has given us ice wine grapes in outstanding condition,” said Troy Osborne of Constellation Brands, which owns the two labels. “An added benefit from harvesting ice wine in November is the nice quantity, as we don’t lose nearly as much to wildlife and birds.” Harvesting in November makes a significant difference in the amount of grapes left on the vine, as growers can lose up to 25 per cent of the crop for each additional month they have to wait for frigid temperatures to arrive. Ezra Cipes, CEO of Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna also extolled the virtues of the combination of seasons. “The Okanagan Valley is singularly blessed because not only have we had a growing season that produced perfect grapes, but we had the temperatures that froze our grapes on the vine to produce this delicious nectar. It’s perfection in a

glass,” he said in a release from the B.C. Wine Institute. Summerhill started their ice wine harvest on Nov. 20 at 9 p.m. with temperatures ranging as low as -12 C in their four vineyards. The harvest will continue this evening at their Kelowna and Oliver vineyards. While ice wines harvests can be as late as February, the key is the temperature, which regulations say must be at least -8 C, though producers often wait for -10 C or lower before harvesting. According to the B.C. Wine Institute, 20 wineries started their ice wine harvests as of Thursday morning and an estimated 446 tonness have been brought in, with more picking expected to continue tonight.

Vees crash net to victory Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Crashing the crease helped the Penticton Vees whip the Vernon Vipers 5-2 in the South Okanagan Events Centre. Entering the second period Wednesday night with a 1-0 lead, the Vees exploded for four goals in the second, starting just before the 10-minute mark when Cody DePourcq beat Austin Smith falling down after going hard towards the net. Forty seconds later, the Vees made the Vipers pay for a turnover just inside the blue line. DePourcq handed the puck to captain Brad McClure who snapped a wrist shot past Smith’s blocker side. That goal ended Smith’s night with 13 saves. The goals didn’t stop coming. Forty-nine seconds later, Anthony Conti went full steam to the net creating chaos. Max Coatta jammed the puck in for his 12th goal of the season. Travis Blanleil made it 5-0 as he jammed a puck in from the side of the net. “I thought once we started having some success, I think we smelled a little bit of blood in the water,” said Vees coach Fred Harbinson. “We just kept going to the net hard and things happen.” “They have been saying that the whole year,” said DePourcq of the coaches emphasizing pressure on the net. “The middle lane drive when we’re going three-on-two … we always want to have a guy driving to the net. You look at guys like Conti and (Jack) Ramsey, some of our bigger players, they like to take the puck to the net which is very good. When you crash the net,

good things happen.” In the final frame, the crowd of 2,742 watched as the Vipers chipped away at the lead with goals by Ken Citron and Chase McMurphy. McMurphy’s goal was the result of a nice play as Demico Hannoun made a backhand pass in front of the net. It was an easy goal at the side of the net as Vees goalie Hunter Miska had no chance. Harbinson said in the final period they weren’t trying to take any chances. “We made two mistakes and they ended up in our net,” he said. “I thought we had some good pushes after they scored.” DePourcq, who finished with a goal and two assists along with Blanleil, said he was happy with how they played. When talking about going to the net hard, he said it has been a huge part of their game.

“It helps with our speed,” he said. “Rebounds are going to be there.” Conti opened the scoring with a shot from a bad angle. “I just wanted to get the puck to the net,” said Conti. When Coatta gave me that puck, I saw that little opening. Maybe this might sneak in and happily it did. He was kind of leaning off the post.” With the win, the Vees improve to 15-5-1-2 to give them 33 points, one ahead of Merritt and Vernon. On Friday, the Vees travel to Coquitlam for the first of a home-andhome series. The Express are third in the Mainland Division with a 10-11-02 record. They have lost their last two games and are 3-8-0-2 in the Poirer Sports and Leisure Centre, but are 7-3-0 on the

road. Express forward Adam Rockwood is eighth in league scoring with four goals and 30 points in 22 games. Corey Mackin and Ryan Rosenthal of the Express are 19th and 20th in the league with 27 points, Mackin has 15 goals. McClure is now second in league scoring with 33 points, including 17 goals

COMPRESSION STOCKINGS FOR ALL! When people hear the term “compression stockings” they picture those ugly rubber socks that are only worn if absolutely necessary. This may be a shock to you, but almost everyone can benefit from compression stockings and new designs even make them fashionable! Traditionally compression stockings were used to control edema, manage chronic vein disorders and prevent blood clots in high risk people including those who have experienced a previous clot, who have had recent surgery, people with cancer or heart failure and pregnant women. These days compression stockings are promoted for a wide range of functions including preventing blood clots during travel, enhancing athletic performance and preventing leg swelling and fatigue in

those who have to stand for long periods of time (eg. Nurses) or anyone who wants energized and healthy legs! Compression stockings are available in difference strengths, only the lowest strength (15-20 mmHg) is available without a prescription. This strength is usually sufficient for aiding in athletic performance, helping tired and fatigued legs and for prevention of blood clots in pregnancy or during long periods of sitting or standing (eg. Travel). People with varicose veins, severe edema or painful, heavy legs should see their physician to determine what strength is appropriate for them and to get a prescription for which you will be fitted. At Riverside Pharmasave we carry a wide range of over-the-counter stockings in a variety of funky colours and patterns. Come in and check out our selection! We are also certified stocking fitters for those who require a higher strength. Questions? Like always, we are available 7 days a week to meet your needs!

Fun. That three letter-word was the focus for Penticton novice recreation teams as they hosted a tournament last weekend. Trevor Aubie, coach of the Penticton Blues, said his team played well as they won two of their four games. “I wanted to see my players have a lot of fun, work together as a team, and never give up,” said Aubie. “I believe they did just that. “The highlight of the tournament for me was defeating Langley 2-1,” said Aubie. “They had a very strong team and thanks to some great defensive play from our guys and huge saves by our goalie, we were able to come out with the win.” Penticton Black Bandits coach Chris Danby wanted his players to work hard and keep improving. “We matched up pretty well with Lumby (a 6-4 loss) and had a very good game,” said Danby, whose team lost 12-2 to West Kelowna, 9-1 to Abbotsford and 14-0 to Semiahmoo. “The other three teams were significantly stronger with a higher number of experienced eight-year-olds.” Danby said the highlight for them was the goaltending of Ben Coombes, Nathan Preston and Shaila McCurdy. “Despite the lopsided scores, the kids remained positive and went out and

Students kick for animals

(behind McDonalds)

Western News Staff

250-492-5144

Members of Valleywide Taekwondo kicked their way to more than $1,200 in donations to help the SPCA. The event is the brainchild of Madison Percevault and instructor Michael Adams. “We were talking about giving back to the community,” said Percevault. The money was raised Tuesday and Adams told one of the three classes their goal was to help animals in need. Fifty students in total participated. The kick-athon didn’t involve the students kicking like crazy for 45 seconds, but rather kicks had to be completed with proper technique or they wouldn’t count. Adams didn’t want bad habits creeping in. “It’s a bit of a competition,” said Adams of what excited him about the event. “The energy is a lot higher. Kids at that age are thinking about giving back to the community. We are all trying to get behind Madison.” Students collected pledges from family and friends. Adams said there were some pledges as high as $50. “People gave some generous donations,” he said. “In the end, when we have all the kicks in, we are going to count the total kicks and give out prizes to the person who collected the most pledges or the person who kicked the most,” said Percevault. “I’m hoping that we get a lot of money.” When it was all done, 5,464 kicks were completed. There have also been other fundraising initiatives such as parents baking, a bottle drive and jewelry sold. Pledges were made per kick or as a flat amount. This isn’t the first fundraising initiative that Percevault has been behind. The 11-year-old enjoys helping others and loves animals which is why she thought it was good to help the SPCA. At Christmas, instead of receiving gifts from family and friends, Percevault asks for donations to go to charities, which have been the food bank, hospital and SPCA.

Road trips forge father-son bond

At the age of five, I started to play hockey for my hometown team in La Tuque, Que. I started as a defenceman because my dad was one. He really wanted me to play the best position in his mind. One year later in a friendly game, I wore pads for the first time and fell in love with the position. A goalie was born to the annoyance of my dad, who really wanted me to be the future Raymond Bourque. I played my minor hockey with older players because goalies were really rare in La Tuque. It was a really nice period of my career with my dad teaching me how to play with the best of his knowledge.

tion. Three to five times a week my dad and I were driving in the snowy roads for four hours, only for practices. I developed a close connection with my dad with all those trips and he has always been there for me in the good and tough moments. When I was 14, my sister got really sick and it changed all our priorities. Consequently I decided to stop playing hockey so that my parents could take care of my sister and

it worked, she is fine now. Two years later, I put the pads back on. I was missing the game too much and I promised myself to play hockey until my body failed, or until I get too old. I restarted slowly, playing for my hometown team for two years. Then college arrived. In Québec, colleges are different than here and the United States. It’s like preuniversity. I still wanted to play and school was, and still is, really

PHAME takes audience on hilarious romp

t.g.i.f.

Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Pen High Arts Media Entertainment is tackling an exciting form of musical stage comedy with a pantomime of Jack and the Beanstalk. “This isn’t a Marcel Marceau, man in the box in a striped shirt theatre,” said artistic director Megan Rutherford. In fact, it is the furthest thing from it. A pantomime is a musical comedy designed for families with songs, slapstick comedy, dancing and a list of criteria that must be followed. The rules also include it must be a story loosely based on a well-known fairy tale. PHAME’s production has colourful costumes, whimsical sets and humour that will tickle the funny bone of all-ages. “It is this wild mix of characters and it is definitely multiple layers of parallel running humour from slapstick to adult humour. We will have quite a bit of eyecandy for the little kids with characters like Little Red Riding Hood, The Big Bad Wolf and Goldilocks making appearances,” said Rutherford. Another major part of a pantomime is audience participation. Rutherford said the audience will be asked to clap, boo, cheer and hiss at key moments. “We will have the characters completely breaking the fourth wall and step out to address individuals in the audience or collectively as a group. They might insult them, compliment them and all of this is part of the criteria,” she said. As a educational theatre troupe, Rutherford thought this was a great opportunity for the 55 students involved to expand their horizons on the stage. It will be the first time PHAME has attempted this form of theatre. Rutherford said they did some edits to the dialogue to ensure it is appropriate for everyone. Austan Paquette, a Grade 12 student who is playing the role of Jack, said the show is fast paced and one of the most comedic productions he has been part of. “There is a lot of funny parts and roles. Everyone has at least one chance to make the audience laugh and we have some singing and dancing going on as well,” said Paquette. Playing the Fairy Godmother role is Grade 12 student Grayce Overhill. She is excited to see audience reactions. “It’s fun to feed off that energy from the audience, especially in this play because they will be more involved with what is happening on stage. As part of the pantomime criteria Jack’s mother, Dame Trott, will be played by a male and a costumed animal will be played by two actors. Overhill’s Fairy Godmother doesn’t have a lot of backand-forth dialogue.

Art gallery exhibit has Okanagan flair who come to see them they are more interested in talking about their work. Daphne asked me a lot about myself and it was very interesting.” Byron Johnston is Okanagan artist rooted in the area that Ainslie profiled. She said his heritage is integral to his vision and his passion for the outdoors gives place for a particular meaning for his life and work. Ainslie said he uses a wide range of natural cast-off farming and industrial materials as well as manufactured materials in three-dimensional installations, which are less about sculptural objects and more about the public’s participation and interaction with his work. Some of the artists featured in the book have lived most of their lives in the valley and have taken their inspiration from the Okanagan, but their range of media, style and intention is diverse said Ainslie. She believes the pace of life the Okanagan offers is conducive for the time and space the artists need to develop their ideas. “Many artists do not think about a particular environment as a basis for their art. Though the region is conducive to making art, it is not a direct re-

The Okanagan is home to a remarkable concentration of contemporary artists with national reputations and it is the focus of the Penticton Art Gallery’s newest exhibition. Opening in the main gallery the exhibition is guest curated by Patricia Ainslie whose latest book Okanagan Artists In Their Studios, which accompanies the show. Ainslie worked at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alta. as the curator of art for more than 25 years. She moved to the Okanagan and found a number of well recognized artists who live in the Valley. “I started looking at art when I came here at the galleries and dealers and the more I looked the more I realized there was a very interesting group of artists here who were quite extraordinary,” she said. “I selected the artists who I thought made an extraordinary contribution to the arts of Canada that happen to live here.” Ainslie met with many artists in their studios to talk about their life and work which she then wrote about in her book. This includes Daphne Odjig, a Governor General’s

Award winner and driving force behind the Indian Group of Seven. The Ontario born artist, who was raised on the Wikwemikong unceded Indian Reserve, lived in Penticton for about 15 years until she recently re-located to Kelowna. “It was interesting because it was the first time I had met her and she is utterly charming. She has the most beautiful face and she smiled a lot,” said Ainslie. “Quite often artists are not so interested in talking about themselves with the people

flect of their inspiration. They draw from culture rather than nature,” said Ainslie. Ainslie’s book, which she worked on for three years, features 13 senior professional Canadian artists with wellestablished careers who now live and work in the Okanagan Valley. All of which have made a contribution to the development of the visual arts in Canada far beyond the Okanagan through their own work, teaching, mentoring younger artists and exhibiting their work. All have also had solo exhibitions or been included in exhibitions in public galleries across Canada and internationally. Ainslie is a fan of each and everyone, judging from her response if she had a favourite. “All 13,” she said followed by a laugh. “I like all their work. I don’t have a favourite piece because I am an art historian; I appreciate a whole wide range of things.” Reception and art gallery members opening for Okanagan Artists In Their Studios is on Friday with an exhibition walk and talk on Saturday at 2 p.m. Ainslie said she will be giving a lecture about the artists in her book and why she decided to write it.

Book highlights history of storied local high school Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

With the turn of each page, Dave Snyder’s book chronicling the storied past of Pen High is like taking a spin down the hallowed schools hallways all over again. Centennial Pen Hi: A Chronicle of a High School 1911-2013 follows the life of the school as students head into the centennial graduation class in June 2014. “To mark Penticton Secondary’s second century is to recognize the social, academic, artistic and athletic legacy of solid public education that happened by visionary drive, determination, planning preparation and execution,” said Snyder. “Propelled with labour, as well as institutional sensitivity and optimism; these factors will be as long lasting, I hope, as the red bricks of the Ellis and the stone wall that borders the new Jermyn Avenue School.” Snyder, a teacher at the school for 25 years, said for much of its life, Penticton Secondary School was the education, recreational and cultural heart of the community. He said this aspect of the school bringing together the community isn’t as prominent in current days. “The school was a magnet in that use to bring people together. There isn’t a place like that anymore,” said Snyder. “I hope the book brings an appreciation of what the school has

done. It does have a tradition and positive traditions tend to carry on.” Snyder spent five years digging up photos, historical documents and information to chronicle the history of the school. He also turned to high school annuals and historic records from the Penticton museum archives. As well Pen High graduate and now city councillor Wes Hopkins provided some research. Snyder said Pen High was blessed with long ruling principlas. In its first hundred years the school employed 17 principals. He also said the school had a dedi-

cated teaching staff. “There is an amazing number of former Pen High students that have returned as staff. The teachers were heavily into community involvement. You see them as city councillors and in other positions of responsibility or volunteer groups,” said Snyder. The book is expected to be available for purchase ($45) at the beginning of December. The book can be ordered by emailing info@oldphotos.ca. Proceeds from the book will go to the Pen High Scholarship and Bursary Foundation.

Two young Penticton filmmakers are making a name for themselves in the Okanagan. Cousins Maddison Tebbutt, 16, and Ivy Allen, 12, wrote, edited and filmed the movie Dollhouse as part of the Kelowna Centre for Arts and Technology’s 48-hour Film Challenge. The duo created the film over the weekend of Oct. 18 to Oct. 20 and took home an award. “It was really fun to work on the film competition with my cousin, and I hope we can make more,” said Allen. Filmmakers of all ages entered the contest, including many students currently studying filmmaking at the Kelowna Centre for Arts and Technology. Dollhouse is set in an abandoned house and at a nearby apple orchard. Something about the house’s past is evil and it has a chilling effect on all who dare to enter. Although essentially a horror film, the movie contains beautiful cinematography of the orchard and montages inside the home. “People can interpret the meaning of the film in different ways,” said Allen of their five-minute film. “I’m just glad we scared a few people.” The 48-hour Film Challenge tested teams both by the short time frame of the event and the mandatory creative and cinematic elements provided by event organizers culminating in a weekend of filmmaking fun. This type of filmmaking levels the playing field so virtually anyone, students to seniors, could enter and have a shot at winning. It once was open to only residents of the Thompson-Okanagan, but as of this year it was opened to all

residents of B.C. Participants could use any visual medium to create their final film including film, video, animation and digital photography. The girls received their film award in front of a sold-out audience at the Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna. “One of the coolest things was seeing so many people watching the film,” said Tebbutt. “Someone actually screamed, so that was great.” Russell Stasiuk is Tebbutt’s teacher at Penticton Secondary School. He said one of the things he loves most about teaching film and television is watching the students overcome challenges to create amazing pieces of work. Stasiuk attended the awards night to see his students’ winning work. “One of the things that I love about teaching Film and Television is that my students often get a chance to compete in provincial and national contests. It seems that the gifted students truly excel when faced with such a challenge and strive to create movies that they are proud to share with others,” said Stasiuk. “Every now and then as I watch one of these contest entries I can feel my skin crawl, my neck hair prickle, and I think to myself ‘Oh my gosh, I think this could be a winner.’ I’ve been right on many occasions, and Maddy’s movie Dollhouse not only made my skin crawl, it does so every time I watch it.” Stasiuk said he hopes to enter the film in at least two more contests, The Vancouver Sun Film Festival and the B.C. Student Film Festival. To view Dollhouse visit www.PentictonWesternNews.com/entertainment or view the 48 Hour Film Challenge YouTube page.

A mother cAt and her four kittens are now safe inside after being rescued by a Penticton woman. Alleycats Alliance is now looking for donations to help with vet bills and a foster family until they can be adopted.

Cats find second life thanks to rescue Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Four adorable furry bundles of joy and their mom will not have to fend for themselves anymore. A Penticton woman who has seen the yet to be named mother cat for the past year wander around her rural property giving birth to three litters of cats finally got the opportunity to rescue her. “Her story is absolutely amazing,” said Cheryl Hubbard vice president of AlleyCats Alliance who are fostering the animals, of the mother cat. “The lady who rescued them has seen the cat on and off for a year and put food out when she came around. Now that the cat gave birth to her third litter that the lady knew of, she decided she had to do something.” Because the mom is quite friendly, AlleyCats Alliance believes someone abandoned her in the wilderness in the Carmi area. The four tortoise coloured kittens are believed to be about nine to 10 weeks old while the mother is believed to be fairly young and is short-haired. AlleyCats is now working with Dr. Marlis Anderson in Summerland to get the feline family get checked, they have an appointment later in the month to get them spayed and neutered

thanks to a financial donor who came forward to help. “We think the mom was dumped in the wild by her family because she is so friendly with people. Now we hopefully will get the little guys domesticated and into loving homes,” said Teresa Nolet, who also sits on the board for AlleyCats Alliance. “This is becoming a common occurrence where people either can’t afford or for whatever reason don’t want their cats but the shelters are full. So they decide they want to give their cat a chance at life and dump them in the wild. These cats then get pregnant, are malnourished and their coats might get thin and now it is getting colder out.” AlleyCats Alliance is a nonprofit organization that runs a variety of fundraising events throughout the year to help with the plight of cats and kittens in the region. They also accept donations, bottle and can pick ups and accept miscellaneous items including blankets, cat crates, food, toys and scratching posts. “We made a conscience decision not to operate a shelter. We work strictly with foster homes,” said Hubbard. “Quite often people are lucky if the SPCA has room and usually by the time they call us, they have already tried all the

shelters and nobody has room.” It is why the group is asking anyone interested in becoming a foster family to contact them. AlleyCats Alliance helps pay al the vet bills and supplies all the food and litter. Foster families are asked to take the animal to and from vet appointments and to the adoption centres when necessary, as well as giving all your love and affection to the cat. In the case of the rescued kittens, Hubbard said they will need some extra attention to socialize them, which AlleyCats will teach the individual or family how to do. They are also asking for donations to help them with veterinary costs for the four kittens and their mother. Hubbard said it is the group’s mission to help spread awareness on the importance of spaying and neutering your animals. This recent rescue is a prime example of why. “It is the root base of the problem. If you have your pet spayed or neutered they aren’t able to perpetuate this by having more kittens. That is so much of our philosophy, to stop the problem of overpopulation,” said Hubbard. Contact AlleyCats Alliance to donate or to apply to be a foster family at 250-488-2223 or at www.AlleyCatsAlliance.org.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

The S3 really is the sweet spot for drivers that want to have extra power but with a very compliant and comfortable ride. Zack Spencer

Visit the Audi A3 photo gallery at drivewayBC.ca

Audi’s road ahead paved with more than good intentions 2014 Audi A3 Cabriolet/S3 MONACO: Over the next 12 months or so, consumers are going to be treated to an onslaught of new entries into the premium market. Not to worry, the next wave of German sedans and convertibles are of a more affordable nature. Recently Mercedes Benz introduced their all-new CLA 250 at an eye-popping price of just $34,000 for a sleek and sexy sedan. Next year we will see the introduction of BMW’s new 1-series and 2-Series sedans, coupes and convertibles. Audi has been ahead of the curve as they helped pioneer this entry-level segment with the original, the A3 sportback, sold in Canada for years. The all-new Audi A3 sedan will arrive in March of 2014 and the convertible and more powerful S3 sedan will arrive in the fall of 2014. This week I had a chance to drive both the convertible and S3 in Monte Carlo, a full year ahead of their introduction here. Audi is one of the fastest growing premium brands and a big part of that is the variety of cars they offer. Unfortunately, we will no longer get the sportback, but the fact we get the rest of the line of A3s is exciting for buyers. Looks The A3 is built off a shared platform with VW called MQB. This platform was a significant investment for the VW group as it is lighter, bigger and stronger than the last Golf platform and provides a sturdy basis for the A3 Cabrio and S3. The new Cabriolet is 60kg lighter than the outgoing European model, yet the wheelbase is longer and the interior room and trunk more ample. It could be argued that Audi is building some of the most attractive cars these days and these smaller products still convey the same sense of power and solidity that the bigger products portray. The S3 is especially forceful with a 15mm lower stance than the A3 sedan. The air intakes are bigger with more detail; the side mirrors are highlighted with brushed aluminum; and the rear of the car looks more masculine thanks to chunky exhaust tips. The

Ease of attachment is a key consideration when selecting a blade. IAN HARWOOD

is available in 82”, 84”, and 88” lengths. Cost is $1,315. If you use a plow to make money, then you will want to be able to do the job quickly and efficiently, so you may want to go with the multi-position. Multi-position plows are up to 50 per cent faster due to the fact that you can reposition the blades to all straight-blade positions in addition to the scoop and V positions. This makes the plow adaptable to nearly any job you need to do. When it comes to the composition of the blade you have the choice between steel and poly. The vast majority of snowplows on the market today come with steel blades, although the poly plows are becoming more and more popular. The reason for the growing popularity is that poly is just as strong as steel and maybe stronger. They also have a lower coefficient of friction, which saves on fuel costs and is easier on your vehicle. The poly plows are also saturated with color all the way through so nicks and scratches do not show like they do with steel, plus they do not rust.

Attaching and detaching the plow is very important as well. You do not want to be freezing and trying to deal with getting a blade on and off your truck. Try the attachment system for yourself at the dealer so you can see firsthand how easy or difficult it is to use. Most snowplow makers use a single halogen light bulb, which are not bright enough; some makers have come out with dual halogen bulbs with the option of upgrading to High Intensity Discharge. These HID lights are four times brighter than standard halogen bulbs and also last ten times as long. Hydraulics is probably the most important part of the plow, along with the controls. Be sure that the hydraulics system is dependable and the controls are simple and easy to use. Go for quality rather than trying to save a buck. Remember, “you get what you pay for” definitely applies here. Cost for these units are $6,000 to $8,000 depending on the model. When it comes to the warranty, be sure to know exactly what you are getting and what the warranty covers. Some only cover parts, while others cover parts and labor. Warranties are usually either one year or two years; so pay attention to the warranty. Take all of these things into consideration when shopping for a snowplow and you will be able to choose the right one to suit your needs. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

I know I wrote about winter driving last week and the snow and rain began to fall in various parts of the province but please don’t blame me for this first blast of chilly weather. I’m here to help and at the risk of bringing on a blizzard, I thought I would share some information on snow plows. For most people who are just using a plow for clearing their own driveway, a straight blade will more than likely be just fine. Snowsport offers a personal plow that is perfect for the homeowner. This system attaches to a front mounted receiver just as a boat trailer would. The U-shaped bracket is connected to the receiver and the snow blade rides up and down on these bars to allow for change in the terrain you’re plowing. Because there are no hydraulics involved, all you do is back up and the snow blade lies back, skimming over the surface. When driving forward the blade automatically re-engages for plowing. When you are finished, lift the blade back over the push frame into the transport position. The cost of this option is $1,644. K2 is another brand of snowplow designed for the homeowner with acreage. Designed to work with a front receiver hitch, just like the Snowsport, it simply slides in the receiver and locks in place with a hitch lock. The winch is controlled from inside the cab and will raise or lower the height of the blade. The blade comes with a hardened steel cutting edge scraper, rubber snow deflector, skid shoes, and plow markers. It

Driving to cut Big Oil profits ‘‘

The Accord plugin coaxed me into a little competition with myself every time out to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. Keith Morgan

’’

They should just call the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan the Gas Miser. The car is here for market testing right now but surely it will see production next year and arrive in dealerships later in the year. And when it does, sell your shares in Big Oil. It only sips gas by the spoonful; how else do you account for an easily achievable 4.1 L/100km combined city/highway fuel economy rating?

Drive gently around town and you can purr along in all-electric mode for between 20 and 28 kms depending on road conditions. You won’t achieve that all at once, unless it’s the dead of night on a flat road, without any other traffic and green lights all the way. However, it is estimated that if you achieve that 20plus all-electric ride during a 100 km journey, the power unit will consume electricity/gasoline at an equivalency of around 1.6 L/100km. In truth, it’s hard to put a real-life meaning into that number but it is useful when comparing with other similarly equipped cars. But when you look at that number and the low gas/hybrid combined fuel performance, which enables you to journey 800 kilometres on one tank, it does plant the notion in one’s head that plug-in hybrids are the way to go for awhile before we reach hydrogen fuel cell nirvana.

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug in Hybrid Sedan has a range of 800 kilometres on one tank. The car is powered by Honda’s first two-motor hybrid system, and uses a new, delightfully named, Earth Dreams 2.0 litre i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine producing 137 horsepower, teamed with a powerful 124-kilowatt (kW) electric motor.

Electric driving is supported by a 6.7 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, and total system output is 196 horsepower. If your eyes glazed over at the obligatory statement of power unit specifications, join the club! Fuel economy

interests me more. Like every other car with green aspirations that I have driven, it coaxed me into a little competition with myself every time out to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. It’s fun to select EV mode and pull away

Why women can negotiate a better deal Alexandra Straub

For many people, buying a car is a stressful process. Something worse than going to the dentist or for women, a Brazilian waxing. Ouch. It can be a lengthy one too. Furthermore, it doesn’t always start by going from dealership to dealership. In fact, most people have access to the Internet, so they’re doing their research beforehand, prior to even leaving their home and finding themselves on a dealer lot, or with glossy brochures in hand. They look at various vehicle reviews, flip through newspapers (like the one you’re reading now) and ask other car owner’s opinions. When they get to the dealership, that’s when it becomes real. You take the car for a test drive, fall in love with it or walk away from it. When you find “the one” then comes the time to sign on the dotted line.

But before you seal the deal, it’s time to negotiate, unless you’re happy with the price given. For women, this can be an even more intimidating process. Getting through the dealer’s door is just the first hurdle they feel they have to overcome. But Vijay Jeyapalan, of Unhaggle (www.unhaggle.com), which helps Canadian car buyers get the best price on their new car by getting dealers to compete to offer the lowest price – argues that women are better negotiators than men, an idea that challenges societal norms when it comes to car buying. Jeyapalan says, “Before stepping into the showroom or test-driving a vehicle, most women are recognized to have done their homework and pre-purchase preparations. This advantage allows them to properly assess what they want upon arrival and ask the necessary questions to advance the car buying process.” His point centres on the notion that when you know less, you prepare more. With all the tools out there, it’s not as difficult or

‘‘

The image of a damsel lost in a showroom, if it ever actually existed, is no longer something salespeople will see.

’’

Vijay Jeyapalan

as time consuming as it has been in the past. Sites dedicated to women and automobiles are there to assist, as well as female car reviews, lifestyle writers, mommy bloggers and more. He adds that women don’t mind shopping around, browsing at various products, taking the information and then contemplating it. They aren’t always in a hurry to buy right then and there. “Many are convinced that the forceful tactics men use during negotiations are actually working against them in car buying situations. Men tend to focus on status and act upon superiority, which is a

poor way of negotiating. “While the man says, ‘Take it or leave it,’ the woman might be more collaborative and willing to compromise—thus making them better negotiators. Listening is the key, not aggression and intimidation.” He goes on to say that, “Women understand that a common ground is usually the best platform for a fair negotiation. Empathy plays a large role in that regard. Being able to view the situation from another person’s perspective doesn’t necessarily create an advantage, but it does allow the person to understand why they aren’t getting the upper hand.” Statistics show that more women are making car purchases that ever before. Granted they might not be experts when they walk in the door, but they generally know what they want. “The image of a damsel lost in a showroom, if it ever actually existed, is no longer something salespeople will see,” said Jeyapalan. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

My other sofa is a Bentley matched to a padded structure covered in a light cashmere. The colour palette is composed of varying neutral tones of ivory and taupe matched with shades of beige and cream. Intricate details such as the leather braid around the contours highlight the soft and sinuous lines. The iconic quilted diamond pattern embossed in the leather interiors of a Bentley has also been interpreted into the unique designs of the furniture.
