Joint council session held Councils discuss areas of mutual concern C AROLYN GR ANT

Last week, Kimberley and Cranbrook City Councils held a joint session to discuss areas of mutual interest. Kimberley Mayor Ron McRae reports a good session with a lot of information shared. First under discussion was the Rails to Trails and how both councils could assist the Society in its work as steward of the trails. There was also discussion on dealing with the continuing issue of invasive weeds along the trail. Both councils have received updates on issues around nurse practitioner and doctor recruiting. “We wanted to be sure that both councils are informed on the role of nurse practitioners, and the need for more walk-in clinics for those not formally attached to a doctors. This could be a way to reduce pressure on the emergency room,” McRae said. One issue both Kimberley and Cranbrook continue to deal with is urban deer and there was considerable discussion around it. There was general discussion around what both communities are doing going forward. “Both deer committees will be continuing their work,” McRae said. “ Cranbrook is looking at another count to inform their future direction. We talked again about who is responsible for the deer, There is an interest on the part of the province to engage communities on a more coordinated approach. We’ve had conversations with the Minister of Lands, Forests and Natural Resources around a task force. Also on the agenda was possible opportunities for the two cities to share certain equipment such as paving equipment, how things are going at the airport and the upcoming BC Mayors Caucus, which will be hosted by Kimberley and Cranbrook next spring.

KAR: Regional Community Champs C AROLYN GR ANT

Last Thursday, Mia Gardiner, Coordinator of Volunteer Engagement for the Canadian Society visited the Kimberley Alpine Resort to express the Cancer Society’s appreciation for supporting their efforts. KAR received the Regional Community Champion Award

recognizing excellence in corporate and community partners, in community fundraising and program delivery at the regional level. Kimberley Alpine Resort was a long time sponsor for the Relay for Life event, as well as founding partner, host and driving force behind the Slopes for Hope. Slopes for Hope was born in Kimberley as a replacement

for the Relay for Life, and involves a day of skiing the vertical length of Mount Everest and raising funds for cancer research. There will be a Slopes for hope event again in 2014. See more in a future edition of the Bulletin. “The Resort embraces prevention, and promotes the benefits of an active, healthy life-

style, as well as family values — hosting many activities throughout the year that embrace these values,” Gardiner said. “The Kimberley Alpine Resort is a true community champion, embracing the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society in generous ways over the past several years. The Society is grateful and appreciative of this ongoing commitment.”

Cranbrook family buys multimillion dollar estate The Hockley/McInnes family plans to turn the prestigious Cherry Creek Estate into a luxurious wedding and conference venue

Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A local father, son and son-in-law can hardly believe their good fortune after purchasing the beautiful Cherry Creek Estate near Meadowbrook in the fall. The 320-acre estate contains a luxurious 13,000 square foot home, a 5,400 square foot buggy barn crafted by Bavarian master timber framers, and a 5,000 square foot deluxe horse barn with in-floor heating. It’s also a working ranch with cattle, horses, chickens and goats. “Three months ago I had no idea this place even existed. It’s been quite a life-changing event,” said Jody McInnes, who purchased the home after a nail-biting auction, along with his brotherin-law Joe Hockley and father-in-law Dennis Hockley. The property was advertised for auction in the summer by former owner Hans Pleschinger. Joe Hockley learned the estate was up for sale and, knowing that Jody and his wife had long dreamed of owning a

guest ranch, sent him a text message joking, ‘Are you going to buy this place?’ But when Dennis also suggested it to Jody, the three family members decided to attend a property viewing together. “And it just blew me away,” said Jody. “I thought, ‘This is our place. How are we going to make this work?’” Jody has an education in science as well as tourism and recreation. He owns Stillwater Consulting, a local project management group, and is a partner with Isaac Hockley, also a brother-in-law, in concert management group HM Productions. Joe Hockley owns and operates Zion Trucking. Dennis Hockley is a long-time local real estate developer who owns Living-Stones Developments. Together, they put their hands together and decided they would put in a bid on Cherry Creek Estate in August. There were four or five other bidders, and as the auction approached closing, it was very tense, Jody remembered.


Sitting between Meadowbrook and the Kootenay River, Cherry Creek Estate boasts a 33,000 square foot high-end home. “We didn’t know what to do with ourselves, so Joe and I just went golfing. I couldn’t work anyway, so we said, ‘Let’s go golf and we’re just going to be out there and accessible by phone.’ We were watching the clock tick down and all of a sudden we refreshed the page and it said the auction is over.” The Hockley and McInnes families took possession in late September. Originally, bids for the property were starting at $7.5 million, but the final sale was for








$2.9 million. In October, Cherry Creek Estate hosted its first wedding, a family event. “We had a month to move everything in and figure out the place,” said Jody. Cherry Creek Estate is located off LD Ranch Road in Meadowbrook, between Highway 95A and Highway 95 at Wasa. “It connects to Crown land on three sides so you have access to trails for recreation. There is a creek running through it. There are panoramic views everywhere,” said Jody. “You walk around with your mouth open, just thinking, holy smokes.” The 13,000 square foot home has five bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms, which can be separated into three units. “The master suite is 2,200 square feet. The bathroom is like the main floor of my house,” said Jody. But the home still feels cosy, he went on. “It doesn’t seem that big because it’s really well set up and de-

The buggy barn was hand built by Bavarian master timber framers. signed, so it still has that intimate, comfortable feel to it,” said Jody. In fact, during the wedding in October, there were 200 guests mingling in the home in its library and main gathering room. “I was thinking, where is everybody? It did not feel crowded,” said Jody. Those two rooms can seat 120 people for dinner service, he added. There is also an indoor pool, fitness centre and sauna. Around the home and its outbuildings are acres of manicured lawns and gardens. The post-and-beam buggy barn already contains a fully appointed apartment with kitchen, living room, dining area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The horse barn has an air conditioner and dehumidifier and infloor heating with ten large horse stalls, a farri-

er room, horse shower bath and tack-grain room. Now Jody said they are working on plans to convert the estate into a world-class venue for weddings, executive retreats, and family reunions. The main house will be operated as a bed and breakfast. The buggy barn will be converted into hotel accommodation with a warm, lodge feel. Other outbuildings will be converted into bunkhouses. “It’s important that we have a variety of accommodations for a variety of different budgets,” said Jody. They will also welcome boarding for horses in the deluxe barn. “It’s like an executive room for the horse. Our ranch manager is very passionate about horses and he’s going to look after the boarding side of it.”


Cherry Creek Estate will have a private chef to offer dinner service. “Eventually we would like to get to a point where we can go from farm to plate,” added Jody. Once it is fully operational, the estate will bring in visitors from all over the world. Jody has already received phone calls from as far as China seeking bookings and quotes. “The amount of phone calls and emails I get in regards to Cherry Creek is unbelievable.” Simply from wordof-mouth, Jody said there are four holiday functions booked for this winter and nine weddings for next summer. “It’s nice right now that through word of mouth, it will give people from around here the chance that if it’s something they want to do, they can get first dibs on it,” he added.

Shelterbox praises Kimberley Special Shelterbox movie night at McKim For the Bulletin

Thanks to the exceptional response from ShelterBox supporters and the matching funds from the Canadian Government, hundreds of Typhoon Haiyan survivors are receiving shelter and hope with the early arrival of ShelterBoxes. Thousands more ShelterBoxes are on the way and more are needed. Graham Mann, ShelterBox Ambassador, reports that Kimberley Rotary Club mailed a cheque for $3,215 to ShelterBox Canada on Nov 20. “This remarkable amount was received over a period of just seven days,” advised Graham. “ShelterBox Canada notified me that online donations from Kimberley also have been very brisk.” An innovating fundraising activity is being sponsored by Selkirk Secondary School’s Free the Children Team. On Friday, Nov 29 at 6:30 pm everyone is invited to McKim Theatre for a special Movie Night, featuring the popular hit movie Despicable Me 2. Admission is $5 (including free popcorn and beverage at intermission) which will go toward the Team’s purchase of a $1,000 ShelterBox for Haiyan Typhoon victims. These funds also will be matched by the Government of Canada. For more information on this fundraiser, please call Lisa Singbeil at 250-4277714.

In 2012 the students of McKim Middle School raised $1,650 for a ShelterBox that went to Lebanon for Syrian refugees. The Free the Children Team from Selkirk hopes to match or exceed that amount so you are encouraged to attend. Bring your children or grandchildren. Since 2008 the Kimberley Rotary Club has purchased 87 ShelterBoxes as a result of the support of this incredible community. Unfortunately, the need seems to be never-ending with the ongoing natural disasters and human conflict. Donations can be made at Grubstake Pizza or the Kootenay Savings Credit Union (cheques should be made payable to Kimberley Rotary Club) in Kimberley or online directly to ShelterBox Canada at Donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt and every dollar donated to the Haiyan Typhoon crisis prior to December 8, 2013, will be matched by the Government of Canada.

As the cold comes on; how to burn the perfect fire Erna Jensen-Shill from the Kimberley Cranbrook woodstove exchange sends along this article, reprinted with permission from Cottage Magazine. By Peter A. Robson Editor, Cottage Magazine

Tips and tricks to get the most out of your woodstove For about a million years—ever since humans first learned how to control it—we have debated the best way to make a fire. With the advent of matches, it’s now a pretty simple matter: crumple up some newspaper, pile on some kindling and light up the

woodstove. Making a fire isn’t something we normally give a lot of thought to—as long as it works—and most of us have developed our own technique. However, simply getting a fire going is one thing; it’s another to maximize a woodstove’s efficiency and minimize the amount of wood we use. We recently scoured half a dozen different woodstove manufacturers’ owner’s manuals and realized that there was still plenty to learn. The information presented here was excerpted from those manuals. Thanks to Napoleon, Pacific Energy, Regency, Blaze King, Vermont Castings and Lopi.

case, light the newspaper and leave the door ajar until the fire is roaring. It is important to use plenty of kindling to ensure the stove reaches the proper temperature so that it almost instantly ignites the main fuel source when added.

With the advent of insulated fireboxes, internal baffles, air tubes and catalytic combustors, stove manufacturers have managed to reduce smoke output by up to 90 percent and improve stove efficiency by 30 percent over traditional “steel-box” woodstoves. This means savings to our backs (chopping less firewood) and our pocketbooks (for those who buy wood). More savings can come from the many rural communities that provide rebates of $250 or more to those replac-

ing an old woodstove with a high-efficiency EPA/CSA-certified appliance (including gas, propane, pellet and electric stoves). What wood is good?

Both hardwood and softwood burn equally well, but hardwood is denser, will weigh more per cord, burn a little slower and release more heat.

Firewood size Firewood should be cut about three inches shorter than the firebox to make for easy loading. Pieces of firewood should be between three and six inches in diameter, as large logs tend to smolder a long time before they get going. It is always best to use several pieces of medium-sized wood than a few big pieces. However, for overnight burning larger un-split logs are

Loading the firebox Firewood should be placed into the firebox “ends in” so the end grain faces the window. This has the added benefits of being less messy to load and prevents pieces from rolling into the glass.

Starting the fire There should always be about an inch of ash in the firebox and grates should never be used to raise the wood off the base of the firebox. Open the air intake fully. Place five or 10 sheets of crumpled newspaper in the firebox. Alternately, some people prefer a chunk of a commercial fire starter block. Arrange 15 to 20 pieces of small (finger-diameter) kindling on top of the paper. Most people do this in an alternating criss-crossing square pattern several inches high. The next step is where experts differ. Some suggest laying two or three medium-sized pieces of wood (approx. 3 inches in diameter) on top of the kindling before lighting, while others hold that larger pieces should not be added until the kindling is fully engulfed and has began to create coals. In either

Draft is the force that moves air from the woodstove up through the chimney. As hot exhaust gases rise out of the chimney, they generate suction that draws air into the stove for combustion. The amount of draft depends on a chimney’s length, positioning, nearby obstructions and other factors. Too much draft can cause excessive temperatures in the woodstove and chimney, too little can cause downdrafting (also known as backpuffing). Downdrafting occurs when the draft is too weak to pull flue gases out of the chimney as fast as they are being produced. Downdrafting can also occur as a result of the chimney being too cold; strong, gusty winds; or inadequate air supply (such as a tightly sealed house with no external woodstove air supply). One way to help get the chimney drafting properly is to leave the door open and let the firebox get to room temperature before lighting the fire. Another is to ball up a piece of newspaper or a piece of a commercial fire starting block, place it in the centre of the firebox and light it. This should start the drafting process. Keeping it going

For maximum efficiency, the fire must always be very hot. The proper time to add more wood is when the last wood has been reduced to a glowing charcoal bed. Smoke-free, clean burning requires small fuel loads—two or three logs at a time or a quarter to a half fuel load—and leaving the air inlet relatively wide open, especially during the first 10 to 30 minutes after reloading. After about 30 minutes or so, the air inlet can be turned down substantially without generating excessive

smoke. This allows the wood to get to the charcoal stage faster and consume unburned gas vapours that can contribute to the formation of creosote. Several pieces of medium-sized wood are always better than a few big pieces. Don’t burn at a continually low airflow setting. Overnight/extended burning

To maintain a fire overnight or for an extended period, first open the air vent fully and let the stove become very hot (about 15 minutes). Load as much wood as possible. Larger pieces are better here. Load compactly with pieces close enough together to prevent the flames from penetrating the load completely. Continue to let the fire burn with the air vent open for about 15 minutes. The idea is to fully char the wood. Then, set the air vent to low or its minimum setting—some say to close it completely. In the morning, there should still be embers in the firebox. Stir the coals and load small pieces of wood to re-ignite it. Note that if there is creosote buildup in the stove (i.e. the glass is blackened), the stove was likely not hot enough before setting the air control to low.


Overfiring occurs when the woodstove gets too hot. It can cause the stove and/or chimney to glow red. In its extreme, it can cause a chimney fire. Overfiring can be caused by too much draft in the chimney, using an excess of kindling once the fire has become established, leaving the door ajar too long or from a worn door gasket.


When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapours, which combine with expelled moisture to form creosote. These gases condense and accumulate in the relatively cooler chimney flue. When wood is burned properly, the combustion process consumes those vapours. See Page 5

The perfect fire From Page 4 Wet wood contributes significantly to creosote formation. As excess moisture is boiled off, it cools the fire, making it difficult for the tars and gases to ignite, thus creating dense smoke and poor combustion. This moisture-laden smoke also cools the chimney, compounding the problem. A buildup of more than 3 mm (1/8-inch) of creosote should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.

Chimney fires Chimney fires are the result of the ignition of the creosote within the chimney. Chimney fires can reach temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees F. They can also ignite nearby or touching combustibles and cause a house fire. When a chimney fire occurs, it will likely be signalled by a roaring sound, the chimney will vibrate and flames and sparks will shoot out of the top of the chimney. Always have a fire extinguisher handy to the woodstove. Close the stove air inlet and prepare to evacuate. After the fire is out, clean and inspect the chimney or chimney liner for stress and cracks and check

the outside of the chimney to make sure any nearby or touching combustibles have not been affected.

Maintenance Be sure to follow the maintenance instructions in the stove’s owner’s manual. The chimney should be inspected every two weeks to a month during the heating season. On some stoves, the chimney can be inspected by using a mirror and a strong light to sight up though the flue collar. If it is not possible to do this, the stove must be disconnected from the chimney to provide a better view. If there is a buildup of creosote, the chimney should be cleaned. Replace any cracked or badly deteriorated firebricks. Inspect the door gasket. The door must form an airtight seal to the firebox for the stove to work correctly. Only light pressure should be required to seal the door. Gaskets can become worn and deteriorate and leak. See the owner’s manual for the proper gasket replacement technique. Never use any object to clean the glass door that could scratch it. Use a soft cloth and a

non-abrasive household cleaner and be sure to rinse well so that the residue does not become baked onto the glass. Ashes should be allowed to accumulate to a depth of two or three inches. When higher than that, remove the excess, but leave a bed of approximately one inch deep in the firebox bottom to help maintain a hot charcoal bed.

How efficient is your fire? Is there a lot of smoke coming out of your chimney? A properly installed, and operated, woodstove should not smoke. The whiteness of the firebricks and the cleanliness of the window glass are good indicators of the stove’s operating efficiency. If the glass door is constantly blackened with black, greasy deposits that are hard to remove, the firebox temperature has been too low or the wood has been wet. If the glass door has only a light brown dusty deposit that is easily wiped off, it is usually a good indication that the wood is being burned efficiently and you have been using dry, well-seasoned wood.

China’s demographics in turmoil


he 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. It will make 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 fifteen 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 the 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 new rules that have just been announced by the Third Plenum of the Communist Party say that urban people can now have a legal second child if just one of the would-be parents was an only child. This is not going to unleash a wave of extra babies; it will raise the fertility rate, at

most, to 1.6. (“Replacement” level is 2.1.) Indeed, it’s questionable whether the onechild policy really held down China’s birth rate at all. There are demographers who argue that the one-child policy hasn’t really made much difference. China was already urbanising fast when the policy was imposed in 1979, and the more urban a country is, the lower the birth rate. From about 1970 there was also a very aggressive birth control policy. The fertility rate in China had already dropped from 5.8 children per woman in Gwynne 1970 to only 2.7 in 1978, the year before Dyer 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 onechild policy. China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission claims that the one-child policy has spared the country an extra 400 million mouths to feed, but it would say that, wouldn’t it? The real number of births avoided by that policy is probably no more than 100 million in three decades. And if we accept these numbers, then three major conclusions follow. The first is that the one-child policy is not the major culprit in China’s disastrous gender imbalance, with at least 120 boys born for every 100 girls. The social effects of this are very dangerous: 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

hanging around the streets after work with nothing much to do. A regime with as little legitimacy as the Communists will be even more frightened by it. Unfortunately for them, ending the one-child policy will have little effect on this pattern. Only state intervention as arbitrary and intrusive as the one-child policy could reverse the gender imbalance, and it is doubtful that the Communist regime is still confident enough to risk that degree of unpopularity. The second conclusion we can draw from these statistics is that China’s population is going to drop whether the regime wants it or not. It will peak at or below 1.4 billion, possibly as soon as 2017, and then begin a long decline that will see it fall to 1.2 billion by 2050. There’s nothing wrong with that in principle, but it exacerbates what is already the greatest threat to economic 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 ten years. This means the dependency rate is going to skyrocket. In 1975, there were 7.7 people in the workforce for every person over sixty: 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?

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor

2nd Street and more

Thank you to Mr. Pratt for attending the public open house and for providing me with the opportunity to clarify what is being proposed for 2nd Street South and Moir Park. These two projects can be confusing, as is often the case with creative initiatives. I am also pleased that our Engineering staff have spoken with Mr. Pratt and have provided him with a copy of the Survey provided for public input. Here are the facts. Let’s start with 2nd St. South: • This street is a focus for improvement as it is the main access into Cranbrook for people coming from the west, directing visitors to the campground, golf course and hospital. It is currently in rough shape, both the road surface and the water and sewer mains located underneath the street — a poor introduction to Cranbrook. • The city currently has a total of $3,000,000 set aside in our 2014 budget for road improvements, the same as we had in 2012 and 2013. • The Federal Government has set up grant opportunities. We plan on applying for $7,000,000 from them, turning our $3,000,000 into a $10,000,000 road budget AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO CRANBROOK’S TAXPAYERS! • The average cost per block of replacing pavement and infrastructure in Cranbrook is $650,000. The enhancements proposed for 2nd Street South include bike lanes, sidewalks, improvements for pedestrian safety, trees and other vegetation, storm water management improvements and round-a-bouts would increase average costs to $890,000 per block for Concept 1 and $860,000 for Concept 2. Adding these elements increases the likelihood of getting the $7,000,000 grant from the Federal Government, and we get a street from Hwy 3 potentially to 14th Ave. that would be welcoming for both residents and visitors. • The City uses consultants to do the detailed planning for all of our road improvements every year. The additional costs for this project were the 3D video animation and holding the Open House to get public input. We chose to go this route because we want the public’s views on these potential improvements to Cranbrook. Moir Park Moir Park has the potential to be a major attraction and improve the quality of life for all of our residents but particularly for those living on the north side of the railway tracks, thanks to the generosity of the Moir family who donated gravel rich land to the City of Cranbrook. The money from the sale of the gravel goes into a fund that is dedicated to park improvements. That means that the total estimated cost of $11,000,000 for the new park will be funded AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO CRANBROOK’S TAXPAYERS! Phase 1 of the park development, proposed for 2014, is the Off Leash Dog Park with a cost estimate of $813,050. The balance of the park development will take place over the next 9 years as revenue continues to accumulate from the sale of

gravel. We owe a great deal of thanks to the Moir family! Elizabeth Lake Welcome to Cranbrook Sign I guess the old saying that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” really is true. We have received a number of compliments on the sign and the improvements to the Visitor Centre area. Most recently the October/November issue of Pacific Coastal’s In-flight Magazine SOAR includes an article titled BEAUTIFUL CRANBROOK. The article’s first sentence is “Those entering the City of Cranbrook via Hwy 3 now enjoy a beautifully upgraded place to stop, get information and enjoy the natural setting, thanks to the Elizabeth Lake beautification project … The most visually prominent component is the new “Welcome to Cranbrook” sculpture and sign : The purpose of the Open House the City held on November 6, 2013 was to get public feedback on 2nd Street South and Moir Park. We received 18 written Surveys. The consultant is compiling the results to provide direction to City staff and Council I want to join with Mr. Pratt in “urging every taxpayer to go to the City of Cranbrook website, Engineering Department and look at the 3D animations”, or to contact me at City Hall. I’d love to chat with you about these creative projects which build a better future for our City at no additional costs to our taxpayers. Mayor Wayne Stetski Cranbrook

Child Care

Congratulations to the City of Cranbrook for Endorsing the $10/Day Child Care Plan. This plan has been in the media lately and unfortunately sometimes not all the facts where highlighted correctly, so as a member of the Early Childhood Development Committee, I would like to clarify some key points. If and when government puts the Plan in place, child care will cost families $10 a day for a full-time program, $7 a day for part-time, and will be free for families who have an annual income of under $40,000. Every young child will have the right to participate in quality early care and learning programs that meet their needs. It will be up to families to choose what services work for them. With new investments from the province, locally elected school boards will provide early care and learning programs in their communities with the operating funds they need to deliver quality programs. Early childhood educators will receive the respect and remuneration they deserve. Child care, from infant and toddler care through to school age care in both group and family settings, plays a central role in supporting families, often so that parents can participate in the paid workforce, which supports a healthy economy through tax dollars and offsets the cost of child care. Today, BC child care providers interact on a regular basis with the families of close to 65,000 young children. This

makes child care the largest front line support service for BC families. And yet, the crisis gets worse each year. Due to high fees, many families chose unregulated, potentially unsafe childcare. We know that the first 3 years in a child’s life are crucial, therefore quality care is essential. Research shows that high quality early childhood education benefits babies of all backgrounds – especially those with learning and behavioural issues that make it harder to succeed in school. Currently, B.C.’s childcare fees are among the highest in the country. In 2012 the average monthly parent fees in BC were $1,047 for infants, $907 for toddlers and $761 for 3-5 year olds. In 2012 the average monthly parent fees across Canada were $761 for infants, $696 for toddlers and $674 for preschool age children. The Child Poverty Report Card released by First Call, shows that British Columbia remains near the bottom of the heap when it comes to most major measures of poverty. It also shows a growing gap between families at the top and the bottom of the income scale. BC’s child poverty rate dropped to 14.3 percent in 2010, still the worst rate of any province except Manitoba, and higher than the Canadian average of 13.7 percent, according to the latest figures published by Statistics Canada. The number of poor children was 119,000 - or about one of every seven BC children. “Poverty robs children of their potential, and increases ill health. High rates of income inequality are known to produce higher levels of infant mortality, crime, mental illness, addictions, obesity, and lower levels of education and social mobility and trust. This is a recipe for a very sick society, unless we turn this around,” said Dr. John Millar of the Public Health Association of BC. Often childcare is the second highest expense for families after housing. The idea of creating affordable childcare isn’t entirely new. Quebec implemented $5/day universal child care fees in 1997, which were later increased to $7/ day. Many European countries also have low child care fees. The City of Cranbrook, like many other communities in B.C. is affected by the childcare crisis in many ways. Parents are struggling to find affordable, quality childcare for their children, which sometimes prevent one parent from going back to work. This can cause financial strain on families. Families who are considering moving to this area sometimes decide against settling here because they can’t find childcare for their children. This affects our economy as a whole. Endorsing the $10/day Child Care Plan is not just beneficial for local families, but will help the city’s economy which benefits us all.

Ice harvest pair of weekend wins T R E V O R C R AW L E Y

The Kootenay Ice ate their wheaties over the weekend, feasting on a pair of wins over the Brandon Wheat Kings. Kootenay’s offensive production came out at 12 goals in a 7-3 win on Friday evening and a 5-2 victory the following night at Western Financial Place. “We’ve had a little bit of not-so-good puck luck at home, and I think we’ve earned the right and earned the opportunities tonight and last night to score those goals when we’re taking advantage of them,” said Ice head coach Ryan McGill. “It’s not because we’re throwing anything different at them, I just think we’re getting our opportunities to get at the net now.” The Ice are now on a season-high threegame win streak, adding in a midweek defeat of the Rebels in Red Deer last Wednesday. Saturday was Believe in the Gold night, which raised over $4,000 that will go to the campaign that supports families battling childhood cancers. The team auctioned off game-used sticks in a silent auction, with

Sam Reinhart pulling in the highest amount at $870. Kootenay will return the favour of another two-game mini-series when they head to Brandon in February. Ice goaltender Wyatt Hoflin got the win on Friday night, making 28 saves, while Mackenzie Skapski drew back in net on Saturday, returning from injury to make 24 stops for the victory. Sam Reinhart picked up his third career hat trick on Friday evening as Kootenay built up a 5-0 lead by the halfway mark of the game. Zak Zborosky and Jon Martin opened the scoring in the first period, while Reinhart added a pair and Levi Cable notched a marker in the second period. But then, the momentum shifted, and Brandon scored three unanswered goals. Peter Quenneville and Ryan Pilon pushed back by the time the frame ended, and Ryley Lindgren tallied in the third period to inject some life into the Wheat Kings bench. However, Cable struck again five minutes after Lindgren, and Reinhart — inter-

Kootenay Ice forward Jaedon Descheneau gets at shot on Brandon Wheat Kings goaltender Jordan Papirny during WHL action Friday night at Western Financial Place. cepting a cross-ice pass at the Kootenay blue line — skated down and scored on a shorthanded breakaway to complete his hat trick. “It’s definitely been a while, anytime you can get three in one night—it’s definitely a special feeling,” said Reinhart. “It definitely gives yourself a little bit of confidence.” It was a closer game the following night, as Brandon surrendered an early lead while Kootenay took off with four unanswered goals. Wheat Kings defenceman and New York Islanders pros-

pect Ryan Pulock went coast to coast and slipped a backhander past Skapski to pull ahead less than two minutes into the game. “It was a quick start with the second shot of the game, Pulock went end to end and scored on me, so that was a little bit of an eye opener for me early on,” said Skapski. “But I felt like I settled in as the game went on and I felt really comfortable in the end, maintained control and felt closer to myself.” Jaedon Descheneau drove to the net and snapped home a slick

cross-ice pass from Tim Bozon on an Ice powerplay to even up the game by the end of the first period. Brandon regained their lead in the middle period, with John Quenneville collecting a loose puck in the slot and firing it home. Reinhart tied it up 10 minutes later, and Cable tallied shortly after as Kootenay jumped ahead for a 3-2 lead after 40 minutes. Reinhart scored again in the third period, and defenceman Rinat Valiev lit the goal lamp with a bomb from the blue line.

With the distance being what it is between Cranbrook and Brandon, a pair of two home games makes sense, from a scheduling perspective. However, both teams were busy, with Brandon in the middle of four games in five nights, with Kootenay doing the same. “It’s obviously easy to come here in the morning and look at the video and make a few adjustments on how you need to get better,” said McGill, “but really, at the same time, with both teams playing four games in

five nights, it really all about will.” NOTES: Victoria Royals defenceman Isaac Schacher scored his first career WHL goal in a 5-0 shutout of the Kamloops Blazers on Saturday. Schacher, a Kimberley native, developed with the Kimberley Dynamiters in the KIJHL before making the jump to major-junior hockey this season. The Subway Super Series shifts to the WHL this week, and Sam Reinhart will play in both games, while Jaedon Descheneau will only suit up for one.

Dynamiters down Rebels, Rockies Tre vor Cr awley

The Nitros burned up the competition this weekend, with wins over the Castlegar Rebels and the Columbia Valley Rockies. Kimberley got it done with a 5-2 victory on home ice on Friday, as Alex Rosolowsky scored the goal that rained down toques and mittens onto the ice for Toque and Mitten toss night. Rosolowsky added another goal later in the opening period, while Matt Reed re-

sponded for the Rebels. The two teams traded goals in the second period, as Bryce Perpelitz tallied for the Nitros, while Seth Schmidt answered for Castlegar on a powerplay. Kimberley’s special teams struck again, as Jared Marchi scored early in the period, and Eric Buckley collected a goal to round out the scoring. Jeremy Mousseau earned the win in goal with 23 saves, while Kimberley peppered

27 shots on Rebels goaltender Patrick Zubick. Both teams made each other pay on special teams; Kimberley tallied two powerplay goals in eight chances, while Castlegar capitalized twice with the man advantage with seven opportunities. Kimberley outscored the Rockies in the final period to win 6-3 on Saturday night in Invermere. Adam Pullman spotted the Rockies to an early lead,

but Kimberley answered back in short order on a goal from Tristan Pagura. The Nitros kept up the offence in the second period, on goals from Austin Hancherow and Bryce Perpelitz on separate powerplays. However, Nigel Swab was able to score for the Rockies to make it a one-goal game going into the final period. Eric Buckley lit the goal lamp early in the final frame, before Columbia Valley answered back from Racy Big

Snake. However, the Nitros put it away on goals from Dylan Sibbald and Brandon Bogdanek to earn the win. Mousseau again guarded the crease, making 19 saves for the win, while Rockies goaltender Conrad McMillan faced a shooting gallery with 38 shots. Kimberley capitalized twice in nine chances with the man-advantage, and killed off all five Columbia Valley powerplays. Kimberley has a tenuous

grip on second place in the Eddie Mountain division, two points ahead of the Fernie Ghostriders, and nine points behind the Creston Valley Thunder Cats, which occupy first. The Nelson Leafs and the Kamloops Storm are currently duking it out for first overall in the KIJHL. Next action for the Dynamiters is next Friday night, when they head to Creston to face the Thunder Cats.

REGINA — MVP Kory Sheets ran for a record 197 yards and two TDs to power the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the 101st Grey Cup game Sunday night. Sheets delighted the raucous hometown crowd of 44,710 by smashing the previous mark of 169 yards, set in 1956 by Edmonton’s Johnny Bright. Sheets was especially impressive in the first half, running for 128 yards and a TD in leading Saskatchewan to a commanding 31-6 halftime advantage. Saskatchewan slotback Chris Getzlaf was the game’s top Canadian. Quarterback Henry Burris, who rallied Hamilton from a 24-10 deficit to beat Toronto 36-24 in the East final, pulled Hamilton to within 31-16 on his 18yard TD run early in the third and a drive that Luca Congi capped with 33-yard field goal early in the fourth. But Sheets cemented the win with a five-yard touchdown with just over five minutes remaining. Weather was a consideration but not because of the frigid temperatures that gripped the city during the week. At kickoff, it was 1 C and had only dropped to -2 C at the end of the game. On Saturday, the Grey Cup parade was held in frigid -35 C conditions. The biggest obstacle was the brisk northwest breeze that gusted between 30 and 50 kilometres an hour. Saskatchewan was more opportu-

yards to set up Sheets’ one-yard touchdown at 9:29. After Congi’s 24-yard field goal, Durant found a wide-open Simon to put the home team ahead by 25 points. Hamilton opened the game with the wind, but could only manage Congi’s 45-yard field goal to open the scoring at 5:16. Durant found Simon on a 15-yard touchdown as the Riders scored 24 consecutive points to take control of the contest.

Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Darian Durant hoists the Grey Cup after beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Grey Cup in Regina Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013. nistic, outscoring Hamilton 37-10 with the wind. A sea of green serenaded Burris — a former Saskatchewan starter — throughout and had plenty to cheer about as the home team earned its fourth Grey Cup but first since ‘07 after disappointing losses to Montreal in 2009 and ‘10. Darian Durant started both losses to the Als but threw three TD passes to anchor his first CFL championship as Saskatchewan’s No. 1 quarterback. The game had star appeal as actor Tom Hanks attended with comedian Martin Short, a Hamilton native. Early in the third, Hanks was shown replacing a Ticats toque with a Riders hat, drawing a loud roar from the crowd.

Pop group Hedley performed at halftime. It was a disappointing end for Hamilton, which came in having won 11 of their last 15. Burris, slotback Andy Fantuz and head coach Kent Austin were all former Riders returning here looking to earn Hamilton its first Grey Cup win since ‘99. ``Keep your heads up, keep your heads up, guys,’’ Austin said as he walked into the stadium tunnel with his players after the game . Austin suffered his first playoff loss after five straight wins as a CFL head coach. Austin had led Saskatchewan to Grey Cup wins in ‘89 as the club’s starter, then in ‘07 as head coach before leaving to become an assistant with his alma mater, Ole Miss.

Saskatchewan also became the third straight team to win the Grey Cup at home and earned its first-ever CFL championship at Mosaic Stadium. Geroy Simon, with his first two Grey Cup TDs, Jock Sanders and Weston Dressler also scored for Saskatchewan. Chris Milo had the converts and a field goal. C.J. Gable had Hamilton’s touchdown. Congi had two field goals and two converts. Sanders and Sheets had rushing TDs before Durant hit Simon on a 42-yard scoring strike with 1:46 left in the first half as Saskatchewan set a Grey Cup record for most first-half points. A key to Saskatchewan’s success was its play on second down,

converting 9-of-14 opportunities, compared to just 2-of-11 for Hamilton. The Riders’ 25point halftime lead was the second-largest in Cup history, second only to the Ticats’ 29point advantage in their 39-15 win over Edmonton in 1986. Durant had three first-half fumbles but was 12-of-16 passing for 165 yards and two TDs while adding 32 rushing yards as the Riders outran Hamilton 168-3 and outgained the Ticats 333-130 overall. Durant also made it hard for the East Division champions to key on any of aerial threats, completing passes to eight different players. Sanders’ three-yard run at 5:36 capped a smart seven-play, 50yard drive to put Sas-

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll act as if it is your destiny to dive head first into a project in an attempt to move it forward. Try not to get frustrated at others’ lack of vision or creativity. Experiment with a different route, or communicate differently. Tonight: Do not bring your stress home with you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your imagination and drive is limitless, or so it seems. You might try to entice others to think like you. Forget it. Your uniqueness makes you special and also more in demand. A partner will want to have a serious talk with you. Tonight: No need to be serious; it is only Monday. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can’t seem to get energized about anything at the moment. If you can take the day off and relax, that might be best. Don’t take that attitude into work or even into a friendly lunch with a pal. Evaluate what is at the root of your malaise. Tonight: Go with

the flow. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Be clear and direct. If confusion ensues, you’ll know that you have done your best! Also make it a point to confirm meeting times and places. Tread lightly with a child or new friend. This person definitely seems to be in an off mood. Tonight: Catch up on calls and emails. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could give some troublesome issues power if you focus too much on them. Be as clear as possible. Bone up on your listening skills, and repeat anything that seems off. Tonight: Free yourself from a difficult situation by dealing directly with the other parties involved. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A sudden surge greets you in the morning with your first cup of joe. You might feel as if others are speaking pig latin, as they don’t seem to understand what you’re saying. You might want to stop and decipher what could be an important message. Tonight: A long-overdue chat. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


No one needs to tell you that it’s Monday -- you know by the way you feel. Stay out of the problems around you; instead, focus on accomplishing one task after another. It might be necessary to have a long-overdue conversation about your finances. Tonight: Play it low-key. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You come off as very serious to those around you. Approach each moment as new and maintain a methodical approach. If a situation seems ludicrous, know that it probably is. Maintaining your distance will work well. Tonight: Call a friend and catch up on his or her news. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your ability to get through a hassle elevates your value to a higher-up. Once more, this person might dump a problem on you. Confusion could surround a personal issue as well. Do what you must, but remember to take care of yourself, too. Tonight: Attend to personal matters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Keep reaching out for a new solution. It is out there for you to find;

you just haven’t hit upon it yet. Detach and refuse to feel pushed. Back away from a pressure-cooker atmosphere, and much more will reveal itself. A meeting demands your presence. Tonight: Find your friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A loved one might mean well, but you will have a difficult time believing that when you see what is going on behind the scenes. Take a step back and chill out. Imagine what it would be like to walk in the other party’s shoes. You will understand. Tonight: With a favorite person. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your intentions are good, but your actions just might create more of a fog around an already unclear situation. Make a point to detach, and you’ll gain a new perspective. The end result will be better if you do. Tonight: Get through some paperwork you’ve been avoiding.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My wife and I have been separated for four years. We have joint custody of our beautiful 8-year-old daughter. “Lizzie” spends half the week with me and the other half with her mother. It works out well, and Lizzie fully understands that she now has to live in two separate, loving homes. Here’s the problem: When going to gatherings and parties, my mother’s friends and other family members feel the need to say, “It’s so nice that you guys share her right now, because when she gets older, you know she’s going to want to live with her mom full time.” Or, “What are you going to do when she’s a teenager and only wants to stay with her mom?” They then begin to tell me stories about their divorced son or a friend’s son to whom this has happened. My daughter means the world to me. Just because things didn’t work out between her mother and me doesn’t mean I won’t be able to provide as loving a home as her mother. How do I politely tell these people that I don’t care for their comments? Or do I just bite my lip and stay silent? -- Doing My Best in California Dear California: You sigh audibly and say with a tired smile, “Yes, I’ve heard that. Thank you.” And then walk away. These people mean well, but they have no way of predicting what your situation will be five years from now. Here’s ours: Lizzie will cherish both of her parents because they cherish her enough to be respectful of each other and keep both of her homes stable and loving. Whatever she chooses to do as a teenager will likely be temporary. Dear Annie: I hope you can help me with an unusual request. I am a very heavyset female, and there are some parts of my body that I can’t reach to wash. Because of that, I have an odor that I hope no one else can smell, but I’m not sure. Is there any place where I could get these private parts shaved? I am sure that would help a lot. -- Ms. Bit Dear Ms. Bit: You would have to ask at a salon whether they would shave you. You might have better luck with a bikini wax. For permanent hair removal, you can check into laser therapy or electrolysis, although both require multiple treatments and are not inexpensive. In the meantime, look into installing a handheld shower sprayer and check online for easily available hygiene products geared toward those hard-to-reach places. But also, please talk to your doctor about your weight and see whether you have a treatable medical condition, and ask for a referral to a dietician. Dear Annie: I was appalled that you published the letter from “California” and didn’t comment on it. She suggested that lesbians target older women to take possession of their assets. Certainly there are lesbians who are grifters, but the writer made it sound as if this is the rule rather than the exception, and you failed to disabuse her of her misconception. You did a serious disservice to your readers by not pointing out that there are bad eggs in every basket, but one bad egg doesn’t mean the entire batch is tainted. -- A Good Egg Dear Good Egg: You are right. We should have clarified that the point of “California’s” letter was not to disparage lesbians, but to warn seniors that they can be the victims of con artists, whether gay, straight, male, female, young, old or anything else. Con artists often target older adults. Please, folks, be careful, never bring strangers into your home, and never give out financial information or your social security number over the phone.

Byelections measure impact of Senate scandal, battle for opposition supremacy Joan Bryden Canadian Press

The public is being asked to provide input about the fish and wildlife priorities of the East Kootenay-Koocanusa region, including Koocanusa Reservoir.

Help conserve fish and wildlife in East Kootenay-Koocanusa Submit ted

To help conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in the East Kootenay-Koocanusa region, work is getting under way to develop a Watershed Action Plan, and you’re invited to join the discussion. When complete in 2014, the plan will incorporate community- and science-based goals, objectives and actions that aim to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in the East Kootenay and Koocanusa area, including the upper Kootenay River watershed, associated tributaries and Koocanusa Reservoir. The plan will outline specific actions to support and enhance lakes, streams, riparian areas, wetlands and upland and dryland areas, as well as species of interest. This is the first task for the recently announced East Kootenay-Koocanusa Fish and Wildlife Program, a partner-

ship between Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) and the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP). “Area residents have been asking for this type of action plan to address their concerns, and it’s great news that it’s getting under way and residents have a chance to be part of the discussion,” said Dave White, FWCP-Columbia Board member representing the East Kootenay, adding that while the region is impacted, among other things, by hydro operations at Libby Dam in Montana, the program will take a broad watershed-based approach. Provide your input and ideas at an upcoming free workshop (no registration required) or by completing an online feedback form. Learn more and comment at www. Provide your input by January 6, 2014.

at a later date, and the draft watershed action plan will be available for public review in late winter 2014. CBT supports efforts to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin. To learn more about CBT programs and initiatives, visit or call 1.800.505.8998. The Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program is a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of British Columbia, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations and local communities to conserve and enhance fish, wildlife and their supporting habitats affected by the creation of BC Hydro-owned and -operated generation facilities in the Coastal, Columbia and Peace regions of British Columbia. More than $110 million has been invested in more than 1,500 projects since 1988.

Okanagan vintners eye record harvest for icewine grapes Canadian Press

KELOWNA, B.C. — An institute dedicated to promoting British Columbia’s wines says the industry could harvest the largest crop ever for a product that’s come to be known as liquid gold. Icewine is known for its sweetness and is a

popular pairing option with deserts like vanilla ice cream, peach cobbler and creme brulee. The British Columbia Wine Institute says 29 wineries have shown an interest in producing icewine this year, and as much as 1,000 tons of frozen grapes will be

harvested from Okanagan vineyards. The institute says if that happens, the harvest will be the largest on record. When temperatures hit -8C grapes lose most of their water content, and the remaining sugars yield a super-con-

centrated, sugary mix that can be fermented in a matter of months. The institute says 20 wineries had begun their harvests as of Thursday morning, already bringing in about 446 tons of grapes, with more picking to come. “This is the earliest

icewine harvest in Canada for Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin,’’ says Lori Pike-Raffan, company spokesman for the South Okanagan winery. “It’s a delicious nectar ... perfection in a glass,’’ says Ezra Cipes, CEO of Summerhill.

OTTAWA — Are Stephen Harper’s Conservatives on the ropes over the Senate expenses scandal? And, if they are, to which opposition party — Tom Mulcair’s NDP or Justin Trudeau’s Liberals — will Canadians turn to replace them? Four byelections on Monday may provide some answers to those questions. Byelections are typically considered unique, locally-driven events that have little bearing on what might happen in a general election — as the losers in Monday’s contests will doubtless point out. But these four — in Toronto Centre, Montreal’s Bourassa riding and Manitoba’s Brandon-Souris and Provencher — seem to be the exception to the rule, as the unprecedented involvement of the three main party leaders attests. They will provide the first concrete measure of the Senate scandal’s impact, the depth of Trudeau’s popular appeal and the durability of the NDP’s 2011 electoral breakthrough. ``These four byelections are the first act ahead of (the general election in) 2015,’’ Chrystia Freeland, the Liberal contender in Toronto Centre, said in an interview. Of the four, only the Provencher contest seems a foregone conclusion. Former cabinet minister Vic Toews won the riding with over 70 per cent of the vote in 2011 and it is expected to remain comfortably in the governing party’s fold this time. But in Brandon-Souris, another erstwhile Tory fiefdom, the Conservatives are fending off a surprisingly stiff challenge from the Liberals, who placed a distant, almost non-existent, fourth in 2011. The riding has been represented by a Conservative for all but four of the last 60 years. That it’s even a con-

test this time is worrying to Conservatives; defeat would shake a party already reeling from the Senate scandal and potentially spark a challenge to Harper’s grip on the party reins. Prime ministers ordinarily avoid getting involved in byelections but, given the stakes, Harper took the unprecedented step last week of sending a personal letter to Brandon constituents, extolling his government’s record and bashing Trudeau. Still, Trudeau, who has campaigned twice in the riding, doesn’t need a victory in Brandon to win. Just a significantly improved showing will be touted as evidence of his appeal and a sign that western Canada need no longer be a Grit wasteland. But at the same time, he must hang on to Bourassa and Toronto Centre, both longtime Liberal strongholds which have become hotly contested battlefields in the war for opposition supremacy. A loss of either riding would burst the bubble on which Liberals have been floating since Trudeau was chosen as leader last spring. ``The Justin effect’’ has seen the decimated third party rise from the ashes of 2011, back into first place in public opinion polls while the NDP has sunk back to its traditional third-place slot, slightly behind the scandal-plagued Conservatives. New Democrats have poured all their resources into the two ridings, hoping to at least make a significant dent in the Liberals’ margin of victory and, thus, prove they still have momentum under Mulcair, who took over the helm in 2012 after the untimely death of the popular Jack Layton. Snatching either riding from the Liberals would be a coup, touted as a sign that Trudeau is no match for the more experienced Mulcair, who has won praise for his prosecutorial questioning of Harper on the Senate scandal.

YOUR AD in the TOWNSMAN has staying power. has selling power!

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

Christy Clark pitches LNG to Asia Tom Fletcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark set off Thursday on her fourth trade mission to Asia, after sidestepping questions about the environmental impact of liquefied natural gas export plants on the Kitimat-area environment. A new report from environment group Skeena Wild concludes that if three LNG processing plants are built to burn natural gas for compression and cooling – what the industry calls direct drive – they would use two and a half times more gas than Metro Vancouver. The report calls for modern gas-fired power plants to be built outside the narrow Kitimat Valley to reduce the impact of sulphur dioxide and other pollutants that affect air and water quality. Speaking to reporters at Vancouver airport,

Clark rejected the report’s claim that the government has “tacitly endorsed” the use of direct-drive production of LNG. “The study can’t have final answers on any of that, because they don’t know yet how liquefied natural gas plants will be powered,” Clark said. “We don’t know how many there will be. We’re still in negotiations with the companies about how all that’s going to unfold.” Environment Minister Mary Polak said in an interview that one LNG proposal has applied for an environmental assessment, and two others are in discussions on B.C.’s technical requirements for a permit and how the plants would be powered. “Nothing like that has been finalized yet, and of course we are concerned about what that means for a constrained airshed like

Kitimat, because we know that there are a number of facilities proposed for Kitimat,” Polak said. Polak announced in October that $650,000 has been spent on a study of LNG impact in northwestern B.C. Results are expected by the end of March. U.S. Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Malaysian LNG investors expected to make final investment decisions on B.C. proposals later in 2014. The expansion of Rio Tinto-Alcan’s aluminum smelter has already required a 50 per cent increase in the plant’s allowable sulphur dioxide emissions, from 27 to 42 tonnes a day. New technology is expected to reduce the smelter’s output of fine particulates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, fluoride and other pollutants when the upgrade is in operation in 2014.
