Grocer, Sensible BC petitioners at odds

Ferraro Foods offers online apology BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

Ferraro Foods is offering an apology to customers and canvassers who may have felt uncomfortable following an incident in front of its store on Saturday. Petitioners for the Sensible BC campaign were near the store collecting signatures for its petition for the Sensible Policing Act to decriminalize marijuana possession. Ferraro Foods asked the canvassers to move off of its property when customers made complaints about the canvassing. A video on Sensible BC's Facebook page and YouTube captures storeowner Danny Ferraro saying “we're asking everybody to ignore them” while he greets customers, in some instances standing between the customers and a canvasser. Now Sensible BC is looking into pursuing legal action. “I think that when it comes to the Recall and Initiative Act there were some laws broken,” said Sensible BC Kootenay West campaign organizer Susan Yurychuk. “I mean you can't persuade or compel an individual to vote or refrain from voting for and against an initiative and he was standing See POLICE, Page 3 ART HARRISON PHOTO

Volunteer driver, Andy Roberts, gets a hand from members of the Trail Smoke Eaters unloading freshly delivered Christmas trees at Butler Park Saturday for the annual Kiwanis Club tree sale fundraiser.

Trucker helps out Christmas tree fundraiser BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

We all know how Santa Claus comes to town. But how do the hundreds of evergreens arrive from forest and tree farms to Butler Park for the annual Kiwanis Christmas tree fundraiser? For more than a decade, Andy Roberts has been volunteering time and sometimes, student drivers, to make the trek to the East Kootenay to load natural trees and, since last year, Chilliwack for cultured varieties. Roberts is president of the Mountain Transport Institute, a professional truck driver training school in Castlegar, and

makes the yearly round trip, free of charge, for a few reasons. “We realize that when we are training our new drivers on our local roadways that we do delay people from time to time,” said Roberts. “This is one way we can give back to the communities that we operate in.” When possible, a student will be on board during the eight-to-12-hour trip to Fort Steele, Wasa and Invermere, or to Chilliwack overnight, along with instructor, to pick up the festive foliage and fill a 53-foot trailer. “This gives the student real life experience planning the trip and finding the location,” explained Roberts. “But if

it doesn’t fit well with the schedule, I’ll go myself.” Robert’s will drop off almost 400 cultured trees and a limited number of specialty fir and spruce species at Butler Park early this week at no charge to the Kiwanis. The Trail Smoke Eaters were on hand to unload the Christmas trees before Roberts headed out with the rest of the fragrant load to deliver, at no cost, to the Castlegar Rotary Club. “Both the Kiwanis and Rotary Club are excellent local organizations that provide real value to our communities,” explained Roberts.

Brakes put on free New Year’s Eve bus rides BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

New Year’s Eve party-goers will not be revelling on free bus rides in Trail this year after drunk and rowdy youth left drivers and their security officers concerned about their own safety last Jan. 1. “Historically Trail has had New Year’s Eve service,” confirmed Meribeth Burton, BC Transit spokesperson. “But because of the incidents the last couple of years the operating company and their security have certainly made their case from a safety perspective,” she said.

The Trail Smoke Eaters fourth annual Steak and Lobster Ice-Breaker proved to be another outstanding success for the BCHL franchise. Thanks to volunteers and team members, a crowd of over 250 people was treated to a tasty meal, which included fresh lobster, as well as the reverse draw for $1,000. Top photo; behind the scenes the tireless volunteers cooked up the pounds of lobster (from the left; Mirella and Frank Como, Chris and John Mota, Tiger Milburn and Eleanor Gattafoni-Robinson).

Police attend scene FROM PAGE 1 there asking people to ignore us and Danny is so entitled to his opinion but this is an Elections BC initiative and you can’t do that, it’s against the law.” Yurychuk said the organization is not trying to start a war or drive customers away but what occurred simply isn’t right. “We don’t want this to happen,” she added. “Ferraro Foods is a great store, it’s been in Trail forever, it’s one of the better stores you can go to. . . “This is not the first place and this isn’t the worst place that things have happened,” said Yurychuk. “It’s just an uneducated, unawareness problem that exists and if people really took the time to look into it they would see that it’s a good thing.” Via its Facebook page, the grocer states that everyone has the right to their freedom of speech but the grocer’s affiliations remain with the community, “not in political or religious are-

nas.” The note included an apology to its customers for making anyone feel uncomfortable and states that Danny would like to apologize to the canvassers in person. Volunteers were back at it again on Monday, when Ferraro’s in Trail offered up tea and cookies as nice gesture. “We respect and encourage our customers to comment good and bad, allowing us to continually strive forward providing our customers with the highest standard of service,” noted David Ferraro. “Ferraro Foods is a second-generation grocer that have community roots dating as far back as 70 years ago and have remained committed to our communities throughout.” The RCMP, said Yurychuk, have also received a complaint for an officer’s conduct that day.

And we will be handing out a feedback card with each tree so we know how satisfied the community is with the quality of tree.” Money raised from the tree sale is distributed to various local charities, and dispersed in bursaries to many of the area’s graduating students.

rate stops at Ferraro’s “to keep the peace.” “We attended just to ensure that both parties were abiding by what they needed to do and that Sensible BC were in fact on public property, on the sidewalk, which is fine and (acted) more as a stand by,” he said. Yurychuk said intimidation is happening all across the province and Sensible BC is responsible for notifying Elections BC, which determines whether legal action should follow. The Kootenay West riding is nearing its goal of 3,200 signatures, with approximately 300-500 more to get, though numbers aren’t stacking up the same across the province. If the organization collects over 400,000 signatures from all across B.C. by Dec. 5, then there will be a provincial referendum to decriminalize marijuana possession in 2014.

 Sensible BC is also calling upon the B.C. government to pass the Sensible Policing Act, which will stop police from searching or arresting otherwise law-abiding citizens for possession of marijuana. The act also demands the federal government repeal marijuana prohibition, and mandates the B.C. government to figure out the rules needed for a legal marijuana system provincially.

Renovations planned for Miners’ Hall By Timothy Schafer Rossland News

Plans for a renovation to the Miners’ Union Hall are inching forward. Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) has gained approval from the city to begin work on a “common” Miners’ Union Hall renovation plan that includes the attic renovation and the city’s planned upgrades as outlined in the capital plan. RCAC president Renate Fleming asked council to approve the RCAC’s proposed plan for the hall and approve the plan in principal. “Our intent is to build a common renovation plan and budget that is ‘shelf ready’ and would allow RCAC and the city to take advantage of any funding opportunities that may arise in the near

future,” she wrote in a letter to council. Council approved the RCAC’s request to work with city staff to develop a common plan and draft budget for both the attic renovation and the city’s planned upgrades to the hall. Council could also include the Miners’ Union Hall reserve funds in the revenue portion of the draft budget for the common renovation plan, with the goal of maximizing the opportunity to leverage funds to complete the common plan. “The city will have the opportunity to review and approve the budget and plan before it is released to any potential funders,” said Fleming. The city has yet to work on a draft budget for the renovation. However, a conversation around numbers will likely happen in the budget discussions that are now underway.

Provincial Kelowna

Airport passenger numbers soaring By Graeme Corbett Vernon Morning Star

It wasn’t all that long ago that each of the ThompsonOkanagan’s three regional airports were on a par. In the early 1990s, Kelowna, Penticton and Kamloops were each seeing about 300,000 passengers come through their gates annually. While the latter two have roughly stayed the same, Kelowna International Airport (YLW) has skyrocketed, with a record 1.4 million passengers choosing it as their arrival/ departure point in 2012. Nine of the 12 months were record breaking, with August being the peak month (136,000 passengers). “Even during some of the rough economic periods in 2008 and 2009, this airport fared very well,” said Sam Samaddar, Kelowna airport CEO. “In passenger traffic, we punch well above our weight. There are communities twice our size around the country that have less than half the air service we have.” By 2015, Samaddar anticipates the airport could see up to 1.6 million passengers per year. By 2025, that figure could grow to 2.4 million. The challenge, he said, will be to manage expansion prudently to ensure a

balance of customer service, affordability and smart growth. In order to achieve the 2025 figure, he estimates the airport will need to be able to handle up to 650 passengers per hour. Not only will that call for expansion of airport infrastructure, but also of the regional transportation network. “The last thing we want to do is become an impediment to the City of Kelowna in terms of creating traffic,” he said. One of the challenges Canada faces in improving passenger flow through airports is the bottleneck caused by its onerous pre-board security screening process. Referring to countries like the U.K. and Australia, where they are able process up to 300 passengers per hour through security checks, Samaddar says there is definitely room for improvement. “In Canada, we’re lucky to hit 120 passengers (per hour).” Samaddar said the NEXUS program, which allows prescreened travellers expedited processing by U.S. and Canadian border officials (including air, land and sea), is a positive step. Not surprisingly, domestic travel makes up the bulk of Kelowna’s passenger list, with Vancouver (360,000), Calgary

(242,00) and Toronto (207,000) making up the top three connections. Samaddar said Calgary, with its links to Europe, the oil fields and the U.S., is rapidly becoming more important. In the U.S., Las Vegas continues to be the biggest draw, with 88,000 travellers following the Sin City connection every year. Los Angeles (53,000) and Phoenix (30,000) ranked second and third, respectively. Australia tops the international (outside the U.S.) list with 10,577 annual passengers, followed closely by the U.K. (9,597), Germany (8,365) and Japan (6,900). Kelowna airport has added a handful of new destinations in the past year, including Cranbrook, Whitehorse, Abbotsford and Los Angeles. They have also tapped into the labour force by offering direct flights to Alberta’s oil fields. One of major markets Samaddar would like to see added to Kelowna’s air service is Winnipeg. But before any expansion is acted upon, Samaddar said the airport’s air service development team does its homework to determine whether it fits into the overall strategy, and how it will benefit the customer.

“We know the travel habits on our community in the Okanagan – where they’re coming from, where they’re going to, how many trips per year they’re making.” One thing Samaddar gets a lot of is complaints about airfare costs. While he admits it is expensive to fly during peak periods, such as Christmas and school holidays, he said overall YLW is competitive. He cited an August, 2013 study of all Canadian and U.S. border airports by cheapflights.ca. It ranks Kelowna second overall behind Bellingham, Wash. in terms of average airfare. The price difference between the two was $116 for flights to top destinations. “We are amongst

the cheapest airports in the country as it relates to fees and charges,” said Samaddar. “We’ve really gone after nonaeronautical revenues. We look at things like our concessions.” Samaddar said the industry views anything below $8 in fees (landing fees, terminal fees) per person, per flight, is considered low. Kelowna’s are about $6.50. However, with only two major players on the domestic airline scene – Air Canada and Westjet – he said ticket prices are bound to rise. “They’re very comfortable with each other right now,” he said. “You’ll see pricing rise and you’ll continue to see that until you have more competition in the market place.”

Senator Greene Raine proposes national health and fitness day

By Black Press A B.C. Senator and MP are calling for the first Saturday in June to be proclaimed National Health and Fitness Day, to help reverse an “epidemic of obesity” among young people. Senator Nancy Greene Raine introduced a bill in response to statistics that show one out of three Canadian children are overweight or obese, and only 12 per cent get enough physical activity. Canada’s Public Health Agency calculates that health care for obesity-related cardiovascular and diabetes treatment already costs $7 billion a year. The bill encourages local governments and private organizations to hold community events to promote fitness. West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast MP John Weston began working on the idea three years ago, and he said 68 communities have signed on so far. “Our goal is to increase the number of municipal governments that proclaim National Health and Fitness Day to 300 by June of 2014.”

Cross-border shopping magazine aims for Canadians THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - The fierce competition for the Canadian shopping dollar just across the border in Washington state has spawned an idea to steer the sometimesmyopic Canuck shoppers away from malls and big-box stores, to the mom-and-pop shops. About 30,000 copies of “The Crossing Guide” magazine, which is currently under design, will be distributed throughout Metro Vancouver, BC Ferries’ terminals on the mainland and border crossings in early January, said Marisa Papetti, the magazine’s owner and publisher. But not everybody’s excited about the prospect about more U.S. businesses trying to lure Canadians south of the border. “It’s super competitive,” said Anita Huberman, the CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade, about the current business environment. Six businesses in Surrey’s south end closed recently because of a drop in foot traffic, and any increase in U.S. advertising will only compromise others, she said. The shuttered businesses, said Huberman, included well-known clothing and electronics retailers and were located in a 60-store residential-commercial development featuring brand-name outlet stores only a few kilometres north of the border. “It’s not that it’s a no-win situation, it’s just that businesses need to think creatively around their different products or services that they’re selling and how to capture markets not only locally but also in other markets,” Huberman said. Statistics provided by the Canada Border Services Agency suggest Canadians may be making millions of same-day return visits to the U.S. each quarter. From April to June of this year, almost four million people passed through the five ports of entry in the Pacific Highway District, followed by 4.6 million between July and September. The district stretches between Abbotsford and Surrey’s Peace Arch crossing, covering the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver. A survey by the Border Policy Research Institute at Western Washington University found 30.5 per cent of motorists who were interviewed in July 2013 while crossing the border were heading south to shop. More than half of the Canadians who already make same-day trips into the state live within about 20 kilometres of the border, said Prof. Keith Head of UBC’s Sauder School of Business.

Redford gets strong show of support THE CANADIAN PRESS RED DEER, Alta. - Alberta Premier Alison Redford received a strong vote of confidence from members of her Progressive Conservative party in balloting at the party’s convention Saturday. Redford received 77 per cent of the vote in secret ballots cast by 1,197 delegates. “I’m a little overwhelmed,” said Redford, as the hundreds of delegates in the ballroom gave her a standing ovation and chanted “Redford! Redford! Redford!” “I’m so proud to be a member of this party and all that we’ve accomplished together.” The vote, required within two years of an election win, has become a potential trap for Tory leaders ever since then-premier Ralph Klein received just 55 per cent support in 2006 and quit the job soon after. The 77 per cent Redford received matched the figure that her predecessor, Ed Stelmach, received in 2009. Stelmach was out as premier within two years, resigning after he could not quell infighting over his leadership. The voters included past and present legislature members, youth delegates and 15 representatives from each of the 87 constituency associations. The delegates voted on the question of whether to hold a leadership race. Of the 1,197 delegates who voted, 920 said no to the race. Heading into the vote, Redford never said what she considered would be an acceptable number. Party supporters had said they would consider anything over the minimum 50 per cent plus one acceptable, but worked hard to get the vote out. The party affirmed Redford’s promise to not bring in a sales tax. They also recommended the province do more to bring in more workers, pursue flood preparedness issues and review the proportion of how much students pay for post-secondary education versus how much the government pays.

Byelections a litmus test for all parties THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA Canadians will cast their votes in four federal byelections today in what is being perceived as much more than just a litmus test for the Conservative government. It’s also being viewed as a gauge for which opposition party would be the best alternative to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Tories. The votes are happening at the same time as Harper faces the most serious scandal of his time in office, involving the alleged coverup of a scheme to repay Sen. Mike Duffy’s contested living expenses. That’s put a whole new twist on byelections, which are usually viewed as being about local issues with little effect on the general election to follow down the road. 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 Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s popular appeal and the dur-

ability 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. “Part of what’s being decided is which party will be the alternative to the Conservatives and that’s why we’re fighting so hard.” They’re also likely to provide a glimpse into just how readyfor-prime-time the Liberals and NDP are in terms of organizational prowess on the ground. 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 BrandonSouris, 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. In 2011, Merv Tweed won for the Tories with

63.7 per cent of the vote, compared to just 5.4 per cent for the Liberal candidate. That it’s even a contest 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. Liberal contender Rolf Dinsdale has benefited from infighting in Tory ranks over what some saw as a fixed nomination process - won by MLA Larry Maguire - and the fact that his father, Walter Dinsdale, represented Brandon as a Progressive Conservative MP for 30 years. But he may be

conclusion is that consumers have learned to behave more responsibly,” she said. “At one point, the debt can get to the point where the delinquency rate can reverse course.” Previous Equifax studies have shown that consumers tend to take out more loans, and do not pay them back as quickly, during a volatile economy or periods of high unemployment. Regionally, those from Quebec had the lowest delinquency rates, while those in the eastern provinces had the highest. The study also noted that like the previous quarter, seniors continued to accumulate debt at the highest rate, yet still carried the least amount of debt of any age group.

It said debt levels for those aged 65 years and older were 6.4 per cent higher than in the same period a year ago. The Bank of Canada has repeatedly warned that as interest rates rise, Canadians may become vulnerable to

an economic shock if they are carrying too much debt. Equifax uses data from 24 million files on consumer credit history, including national credit cards, loans and mortgages in compiling the report each quarter.

“These four byelections are the first act ahead of (the general election in) 2015.” Chrystia Freeland

handicapped Monday by the Liberals’ lack of a well-oiled organization on the ground. 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. “It’s an important test for the Liberal party as a whole and it’s an important test for our leader,” acknowledged Freeland, who is vying to win the seat that was held by former interim Liberal leader Bob Rae. 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. In Bourassa, one of the few Quebec ridings to resist the orange wave that swept the province in 2011, New Democrats have put up lawyer and one-time pop singer Stephane Moraille against the Liberals’ Emmanuel Dubourg, a former MNA. They’ve targeted Dubourg, who took a $100,000 severance when he quit provincial politics to jump into the federal arena, as an opportunist. Mulcair has personally campaigned in the riding six times; Trudeau has been there three times. In Toronto Centre, Trudeau has joined Freeland on the hustings eight times, Mulcair has campaigned with McQuaig seven times. McQuaig has relentlessly cast Freeland as a tourist who has lived outside the country for 10 years and has no understanding of the issues facing residents of Toronto Centre.

Canadians carrying more debt but handling the load

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO Canadians are carrying more debt now than a year ago, but it seems like many have a better handle on paying it back, says a newlyreleased study. Statistics from credit monitoring firm Equifax Canada show that consumer debt, excluding mortgages, rose 3.7 per cent in the third quarter to $507.1 billion from $489 billion a year earlier. Despite the increase in debt load, however, the overall delinquency rate - bills more than 90 days past due - dropped to a record low of 1.13 per cent in the three months ended Sept. 20. That was down from 1.22 per cent in the same period last year. “People are gaining confidence and they

see they can maintain more or less their lifestyle yet are more aware of the financial choices they’re making,” said Regina Malina, director of modelling and analytics at Equifax. Meanwhile, overall consumer debt, including mortgages, continues to grow. In the third quarter, Canadians owed $1.36 trillion, up from $1.3 trillion a year earlier. Malina said the data shows that Canadians have more control over their debt - from car loans to credit card purchases - even though debt levels have continued to increase over the past few quarters. “It’s not like we can relax and not pay attention to the pattern because delinquency is low, but the

Carbon neutral scheme is sinking

T

wo days after Energy Minister Bill Bennett announced the demise of the Pacific Carbon Trust, the public accounts committee convened at the legislature to pound a few more nails into its carbon-sequestering coffin. Assistant Auditor General Morris Sydor was there to defend his report from last March that concluded the B.C. government was not “carbon neutral” in 2010, because the trust paid $6 million for hastily arranged offset projects that were not valid. An Encana Corp. gas flaring reduction project at Fort Nelson and a forest preserve in the Kootenays would have proceeded  without assistance from $25 a tonne carbon fee imposed on hospitals, universities, colleges and until last year, school districts. In fact they did proceed without this subsidy. The government continues to deny this, but not many

people outside the international carbon offset sales racket believe them. The Pacific Carbon Trust’s functions will continue, Bennett said. Instead of a board of directors and 18 staff, five people headed by an assistant deputy minister will evaluate projects and bestow millions taken from college, university and health authority budgets each year. B.C.’s school districts are still paying $5 million a year to offset such nefarious activities as heating their schools. But now the money goes into a “Carbon Neutral Capital Program,” and districts have to apply to get their money back for emission-reducing projects. This is going so well, according to Bennett, that post-secondary institutions and health authorities will be converted to a similar program in the years ahead. How is that school program going? Here are some examples. 

TOM

FLETCHER B.C. Views

The Coast Mountains School District around Terrace paid $66,452 for carbon offsets last year. It got back most of its three years of offset payments as a grant to complete a boiler upgrade for its Kitimat high school. Abbotsford and Nanaimo school districts each have to pay about $100,000 a year. They got money back for school boiler upgrades as well, although local school officials say that would not likely have been the top priority for spending, if it hadn’t been for the pro-

gram that forces districts to spend grants immediately on emission reduction. Surrey school district paid out $585,000 last year, and also upgraded boilers. Vancouver’s pitch this year was for three electric cars. Leaving aside the distortion of spending priorities caused by this restrictive tax-and-spend scheme, what happens when they run out of boilers to upgrade? And has it occurred to the government’s “carbon neutral” braintrust that those new boilers are still burning natural gas? This program is about to be foisted onto universities and hospitals. Does anyone actually believe that heating hospitals and college classrooms is a key driver of global warming? Presumably our carbon czars know that 40 per cent of B.C.’s human-generated greenhouse gas emissions are from transportation, and a few electric cars for school district staff aren’t

going to change that. And what happens when colleges and hospitals run out of boilers to modernize and insulation to upgrade? It won’t be long at this rate. In hindsight, this “carbon neutral government” scheme is perhaps the worst single idea implemented in 12 years of B.C. Liberal government. Gordon Campbell’s grand vision of a province where government sets the green standard and the private sector economy follows has simply not worked. The NDP presented a motion in April 2012 to relieve hospitals, colleges and universities of their carbon offset obligation. The idea was supported by a B.C. Liberal backbencher, who argued that B.C. should also scrap the carbon tax and quit pretending it can change the climate. His name? Bill Bennett.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Crowe memento still cherished

In 1972, the Grade 12 Household Industrial Arts class of Crowe High School presented me, on their graduation day, with a lovely serving tray engraved with their names, and a thank you. My husband and I have just settled into a retirement home and the few belongings we have brought with us includes their gift, which will continue being enjoyed. Perhaps one of those girls settled in Trail and will get this message. Charlotte Monk Sidney, BC

Mayor of Rossland congratulates Trail

To Mayor Dieter Bogs, Trail City Council and Trail residents, on behalf of the City of Rossland I would like to offer our congratulations to the City of Trail on the completion of the first stage in Trail’s Downtown Revitalization. Most certainly there are significant challenges when dealing with infrastructure along provincial highways that make up part of a city’s downtown

core. Not everyone is patient or understanding when construction delays their busy schedules, however, the result of the disruption is a benefit to the entire community as illustrated by the accomplishments to date. Once again, congratulations on a job well done. Greg Granstrom Mayor City of Rossland

Rex hotel

health and pension benefits to me is a little off base. Health and pension benefits might not be wages but they certainly are earnings if paid for by the company. If you had to pay for these out of pocket that's a different story and then it makes your wages smaller. People out in the work force that don't get these benefits have to pay for them out of pocket effectively reducing their disposable income, or do without. Don't get me wrong , I'm not anti-union or anti-company in this scenario because I don't belong to either. I just don't see the benefit of trying to sway our view either direction,   I/we can't vote or  sway the decision of the company to

change their offer in any way.  And I am sure the concerned parties are well informed via meetings and   internal bulletins / e-mails etc. So they don't need to be informed in the media. Some of us here in town went through a couple long strikes and they hurt ... a lot. Especially when we calculated what we gained/saved at the end of the strike would take us 54 years to recover what we lost during the strike. Just sayin'. All in all we all hope both parties can sit down and come to an amiable solution soon as I'm sure its wearing heavily on both parties. Dale Evans Trail

You both know "we"  as the general public can't solve it and trying to convince us the other guy is the bad guy accomplishes absolutely  nothing as we don't know and will never know all the details nor do we want to, on top of that what's fact and what's fiction.

Enhanced CPP would not cost the young

S

mall and mid-sized employers are arguing that any expansion to the current Canada Pension Plan (CPP) will benefit only the elderly, and come at the expense of younger Canadians in the form of increased contributions. Another example of those greedy geezers adding to their benefits and passing the bill to the next generation(s)? It’s a compelling spin, but it’s not accurate. Today, less than 40 per cent of private sector workers have any workplace pension at all and less than 20 per cent have Defined Benefit pensions, which experts agree are the best way to guarantee retirement income security. Now, those very same small and mid-size employers, which continue to walk away from sponsoring workplace pensions, are also arguing that workers should not have the right to achieve higher levels of retirement security through an expanded CPP. If you are a “younger” Canadian, it is time to consider the truth of the matter. Which world would you prefer? A world where employers

increasingly provide no pension benefits whatsoever, where Canadians don’t save enough for retirement income security, and where, if your parents do save, their investment earnings, because of some of the highest management expense fees in the world, will be virtually zero? This is a world with two possible outcomes. First, your parents will have to come to you to ask for your help in their retirement, either by sharing food and shelter or by providing them with extra income to make ends meet. Or, second, your parents and their entire generation will have to fall back onto Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) payments at very high levels because the remaining baby boomer cohort is now moving into retirement. It will be younger Canadians who will have to pick up that tab, because it is they who will pay those GIS benefits (Canada’s retirement income welfare system) through increased taxation, which is how GIS is financed. Or, perhaps you’d rather a world where the CPP is moderately expanded today and where middle class Canadians can

now (and in the future) retire at a level that guarantees they will not slip into poverty. If a CPP expansion were agreed upon today it would still take several years to implement because legislative and administrative changes, a notice period for Canadians, and a phasein of the new contribution rates would be required to fund the expanded CPP. So, now is the time to act. Further delays cannot be supported. Younger workers, when they retire, will also get these new improved larger benefits. The ultimate goal of any CPP enhancement would be to improve retirement income security for all Canadians. So, despite what you are being told, CPP expansion does not automatically mean that only the elderly benefit – all Canadians would be the recipients of an improved system. And if the CPP were to run into some problems of sustainability, it is not true that only the young suffer; the costs would be borne across generations. Robert L.

Acclaimed French director dies THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS - Director Georges Lautner, whose films from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are part of the French canon and still adored, has died. He was 87. The cause of death was not announced. Of the dozens of films he made, “Les Tontons Flingeurs,” which appeared as “Monsieur Gangster” for Anglophone audiences, was perhaps the most beloved. His films were often hilarious

and wildly popular; lines from several have entered the popular imagination and quoted almost as if proverbs. His movies are still frequently screened on French television. Lautner is credited with guiding a generation of actors, including Jean-Paul Belmondo. On Saturday, President Francois Hollande lamented Lautner’s passing a day earlier, noting that his movies were “great popular comedies that became cult films of our cinematic heritage.”

The senior girls played wonderfully this season and had many victories; they also bonded as a team.

son, the girls dedicated themselves fully to the team this year. Always giving their full effort, the girls utilized their strength to conquer many teams throughout the year. After a season of demonstrating their skill, the graduating players will be missed. Looking to the future, basketball has arrived for the year at J.L Crowe. Grade eight, junior and senior have both boys and girls teams making up six different teams. Practices are beginning and the teams already show promise and foreshadow an extremely exciting and entertaining season of basketball.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks won their fourth game in a row against Columbia Valley at the Hawks Nest Friday night but couldn’t keep the streak going in a road game against Osoyoos Saturday. After defeating the Rockies handily 7-2, the Nitehawks looked like a different team in Osoyoos as they fell to the Coyotes 6-1 the next night. Despite outshooting the Coyotes 15-8 in the first period, the Nitehawks trailed 2-0 on goals from Brett Anderson and a power-play marker from Troy Maclise. Osoyoos would extend the lead to 3-0 in the second period, before the Hawks Jacob Boyczuk got the Nitehawks on the board in the third period converting a pass from Keenan Paterschuck and Michael Bell to make it 3-1. But frustration set in as B.V. took six penalties in the final 12 minutes of the third period, and the Coyotes made them pay. The ‘Yotes leading scorer Colin Chmelka netted two power-play goals in the the final frame, while Brendan Smith rounded out the scoring in the last minute, as Osoyoos went 4-for-9 with the extra man and outshot the Hawks 40-34 including a 19-8 margin in the third period. On Friday, it was a different Hawks’ team at the Beaver Valley Arena as Dallas Calvin netted a hat trick and a five-point night to lead the Hawks to a 7-2 victory over the Columbia Valley Rockies. Taylor Stafford and Russell Mortlock picked up singles for the Hawks, while Michael Bell would score the final two goals, as the Hawks outshot the Rockies 43-32 for the win. Archie McKinnon also had a stellar game, adding four assists on the night. The Nitehawks play the Grand Forks Border Bruins tonight at 7 p.m. at the B.V. Arena. The Bruins are coming off a pair of wins against Spokane, 5-2, and Golden, 6-4, on the weekend.

Vipers down Smokies

By Times Staff Colton Sparrow scored what proved to be the winning goal at 7:16 of the second period to lead the Vernon Vipers to a 4-1 victory over the Trail Smoke Eaters Friday at the Cominco Arena. The snakes’ win coupled with a 2-2 tie with the West Kelowna Warriors Saturday puts them atop the BCHL’s Interior Divsion, one point up on both Penticton and Merritt. Tyler Povelofskie wired a shot over the glove of Smokie netminder Riley Corbin

at 7:49 of the first to open the scoring as the Vipers outshot the Smokies 23 to 17 through two periods. Dexter Dancs would make it 3-0 at 4:18 of the third, and less than a minute later Sparrow would notch his second of the night to make it 4-0. Trail captain Adam Wheeldon put one by Austin Smith with just 31 seconds to play to spoil the shut-out bid. The Smokies get set for a home-andhome with Salmon Arm this Friday and Saturday.

MVP honours after rushing for a record 197 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries to lead Saskatchewan to an impressive 45-23 Grey Cup win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday night. The victory, before a loud, predominantly green gathering of 44,710 was a historic one as the Riders became the third straight host team to win the CFL title and claimed their firstever championship at Mosaic Stadium, which will be replaced in 2017. “It feels good to get the rushing record but it feels great to get that Grey Cup,” the former Purdue star

said. “I’ve never won a championship, outside of high school. “I’ve been on those teams that just couldn’t really cut it. Now we have a team that was the cream of the crop. We went out there and proved it and showed it all season long.” It was an intriguing matchup involving one team with the rabid support of thousands of diehard fans and another that had essentially been on the road all season. The Ticats played their entire 2013 home schedule in Guelph, Ont., while a new stadium is being built in Hamilton. There was also the storyline of Ticats

Legacy continues for former Red Mountain Racer

THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - The offspring of Canadian ski legends Ken Read and Kerrin Lee-Gartner have arrived in the sport. Erik Read, 22, won the Canadian men’s slalom title this year and is a member of the World Cup team. Stephanie Gartner, 17, was named to the Canadian women’s development team this

season. Former Red Mountain Racer Kerrin Lee-Gartner won the women’s downhill at the 1992 Olympic Games in Albertville, France. As a member of the “Crazy Canucks”, Ken Read was the first Canadian man to win a World Cup downhill race and was also the first non-European to win on the notorious Hahnenkamm and

coach Kent Austin, receiver Andy Fantuz and quarterback Henry Burris returning to Regina to face their former team in the biggest CFL game of the year. But Sheets said the Riders heeded the advice of their head coach, Corey Chamblin. “That’s one thing coach Chamblin instilled in us: Be determined, be relentless and just focus on us and that’s what we did,” Sheets said. “We didn’t care about the Ticats all week. “We didn’t think about them, we didn’t talk about them. All we wanted to know was what our gameplan was and when the game started.”

Lauberhorn courses in Austria and Switzerland respectively. Erik and Stephanie say the advantages of having a parent who has been where they want to go in their sport outweighs the burden of expectations. The fact that Kerrin Lee-Gartner and Ken Read were both downhillers, while Erik and Stephanie race slalom and giant slalom, helps buffer comparisons somewhat. Erik, however, keeps a toe in downhill. The super combined - determined by the combined times of a slalom and a downhill is a medal event at both the Winter Olympics and world championships. Erik wants that as an option in his future, but he’s concentrating on slalom and giant slalom for now. He will not race with Canada’s downhill at the seasonopening World Cup in Lake Louise, Alta., this week. Not only did Stephanie and Erik grow up with their parents’ legacies, but

skiing is a way of life for both families. LeeGartner’s husband Max is a former Canadian team coach and was head of Alpine Canada until he stepped down earlier this year. Ken’s wife Lynda is also former national team skier. Erik is the oldest of three sons who all race. Ken is also a former head of Alpine Canada. Kerrin and Ken try to strike a balance of their children benefiting from their knowledge and experience without overwhelming them. It’s not surprising Erik and Stephanie took up the sport, but to compete at the level they are requires more than just encouragement from their parents. “She was not forced into this. She found it on her own,” Kerrin says. “If she wants to be a racer, we’ll support her. This is not our dream. We’ve done this. I’ve done it. Max has worked in it. It really needs to be owned by Stephanie.” Kerrin, now a tele-

vision commentator, says it can be difficult for her to watch Stephanie race knowing all that she knows about the sport. “There’s definitely the hard parts,” she says. “I know Stephanie probably doesn’t want to admit the pressure she gets being our child.” Neither Erik nor Stephanie can think of moments where they’ve felt their parents were overbearing, but they’ve also taken more ownership of their careers as they ascended to the national teams. “A couple of times I’ve been on the hill and had a game plan and she just wants to make sure I have that game plan because there’s been a couple of times where I haven’t and situations have gone wrong,” Stephanie says. “She’s just protecting me making sure that I’m not going to make those mistakes twice, but there’s a couple of times where I’ve been ‘mom, I got this.”’

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - The “Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire” opened with $161.1 million at the box office, narrowly besting the original film and setting a record for a November opening. The result, from studio estimates Sunday, fell short of some expectations, and failed to dethrone the year’s biggest box-office opening of $174 million for “Iron Man 3.” But it did best the previous top November opening of $142.9 million by “Twilight Saga: New Moon.” But the bigger budget and better reviewed “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is doing far better abroad than the 2012 original. It opened with $146.6 million internationally.

parents to shake her has failed. Can you help? -Not a Heartbreaker Dear Not: Sometimes you can’t avoid breaking a heart. Be kind, not cruel, and take solace in knowing you behaved like a gentleman. Tell this girl as kindly as possible that you aren’t interested in a romantic relationship. Say that you’re sorry things didn’t work out the way she wanted, but she must stop texting because it makes you feel that she is stalking you. You cannot control her response. She may cry, be angry or even continue to text. Do not respond. It will take a while before she

Annie. If my uncle were a chef, would it be wrong to ask how long spices keep their freshness? Or the best way to cook a steak? People ask me stuff all the time pertaining to how to handle kids. Why is it that lawyers are sacrosanct, but all other professionals are fair game? -- Not a Lawyer Dear Not: We don’t believe this is true. We think in your household, your mother and aunt expect lawyers to hand you a bill for professional advice. (It may even have happened with your uncle, the tax attorney.) People ask lawyers, doctors, teachers, cooks and other professionals for free advice all the time. How they handle that is up to them. Most don’t mind a quick, simple question, but more than that can be irritating, making the professional feel that you are taking advantage of them. Dear Annie: “Lonely

in My Heart” was upset that she cannot search for her biological parents until she is 18. Please tell her that another option is to contact her legislators and discuss changing the law regarding the age at which she can get information. It is

nice when youngsters learn the legislative process through writing and rallying for change. None of us is helpless. We all can work to change legislation. Indeed, one “lonely” person might enhance the lives of many “lone-

ly” people. -- Fremont, Wis. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net

Recently, the whole family was together for lunch, and we happened to talk about my job as a specialed teacher. I asked my uncle, “If the boss declares bankruptcy, who gets paid first -the employees, landlord or lender?” Before my uncle could respond, my mother said, “You don’t ask lawyers for free legal advice.” I replied that no one seems to mind asking me for expertise. My aunt insisted that it is different because my uncle is an attorney, and my mother agreed with her. I pointed out that my grandfather, an accountant, often gave free professional advice. So, let me ask you,

Dear Annie: I am a boy in junior high school. I recently went to a social event for kids my age. While there, a girl spilled the beans that she has had a major crush on me for more than a year. We see each other often at school. I was shocked. She asked to hold my cellphone and then put her number into my contacts. Here’s the problem. I don’t like this girl at all, but I’m getting tons of texts from her daily. No matter how hard I try to distance myself and let this one-sided relationship die, she keeps coming back. Annie, I have tried not responding, deleting her from my contacts, etc. I don’t want to break her heart, because I’m not that kind of guy. This is the first time anything like this has happened to me, and it’s starting to stress me out. I’m having nightmares about her. All advice from my
