Santa Claus lights up the night BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

More Greater Trail people have landed on the nice list this year, according to Santa Claus who made a special appearance Saturday for Santa's Candy Parade in downtown Trail. The jolly man said he left his reindeer back at the North Pole to give them time to rest up for the upcoming big day. “I decided I'd try to make as many of these parades that I could,” he said. “The next one I hope is in Florida, where it's a little warmer. “You guys must be Canadian.” Frigid temperatures that felt far cooler than the actual -20 C didn't keep about 500 people from coming out to

the annual winter parade down Bay and Cedar avenues. Community groups and businesses were led by parade marshal Ken Koshey. The long-time minor hockey coach was selected in recognition of his finish in Kraft's “Hockey Goes On” promotion which netted the Greater Trail Minor Hockey Association (GTMHA) $20,000. The parade kicked off the Silver City Nites event that included by-donation hotdogs and hot chocolate by United Steelworkers Local 480, by-donation cotton candy made by this year's Trail Ambassador candidates and Christmas baking for sale from Creative Cupcakes. St. Michael's choir sang Christmas melodies while the GTMHA set some

nets up for street hockey. The crowd was encouraged to later take in a Trail Smoke Eaters game, with free admission for children under 12 years old, or do some shopping at some local businesses that chose to stay open late. Tammy Lomin, who owns Bay Avenue Music with her husband Ted, said Friday night was quiet when the store was kept open late to coincide with the downtown event. “I think a lot of people avoid the downtown at night.” she said. “I just don't see a lot of people. “We've stayed open late before, nothing ever happens.” Though Bay Avenue Music just celebrated its one-year anniversary with a See MORE, Page 2

The Beaver Valley recreation committee has decided to end an agreement with Trail by year end, meaning 2,850 registered cardholders in those areas will be paying more to use the city’s facilities effective Jan. 1. The Beaver Valley Recreation, Parks and Trails Committee (BVPARTS) informed the city that it will not be renewing, renegotiating or extending its Recreation Services Agreement with Trail, according to the city’s press release on Friday. As a result, all residents of Montrose, Fruitvale and Electoral Area A will be subject to higher rates under the Trail Resident Program (TRP) for facilities covered by the agreement including the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre, leisure programming, the Willi Krause Field House and Haley Park. “First of all the city has never even contacted us about renewal,” said Fruitvale Mayor Patricia Cecchini. “You can’t just assume we are going to give you a cheque without talking to us first.” Additionally, the committee has asked the city to release details on how many valley residents access the city’s facilities, but those numbers haven’t been forthcoming, said Cecchini. User information can be tracked through membership and registration in programs, but drop-in rates to the facilities cannot, explained Trisha Davison, the city’s director of parks and recreation. According to Davison’s statistics for aquatic centre usage, Fruitvale (combined with Area A) currently has 417 registered members and 167 in Montrose. “We can’t track drop-in usage when someone is just paying a $6 admission to use the facility,” said Davison. “Identification from a TRP card or, for example, a driver’s license has to be produced but it isn’t connected to an account so we don’t keep track.” For the other almost 7,000 users registered between Trail and Warfield, the end of the agreement will probably mean an increase in membership because without B.V.’s contribution, the city will experience an immediate loss in revenue of $209,350. “We are now working on reorganizing our administrative processes for all Beaver Valley residents,” says Davison.

More holiday events on tap

FROM PAGE 1 successful midnight madness sale last month, Lomin said generally Trail is a Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. town. But over on Cedar Avenue, Five Skate employee Jesse Briggeman said about 20 people perused the new store that night. The shop, owned by Jason Ayles of Trail Martial Arts, just opened less than a month ago. “It definitely brought people in,” said Briggeman. “Most of the people who came in just hadn’t even seen (the store) so there was just a lot of people coming in to check it out.” The city has noticed an increased interest in its community events, which is apparent by the number of views on its Facebook page, according to Andrea Jolly, Trail communications and event coordinator. Santa’s Candy Parade was just another example of a seasonal celebration that ultimately promotes the city’s downtown.

“The whole idea (was) very similar to what we did for Spooktacular,” said Jolly. “We really wanted to draw, invite the community into the downtown core and bring attention to our great city while celebrating an occasion.” Trail Parks and Recreation has a few holiday events still to come with a Christmas Bash planned for Dec. 15 from 1-3 p.m. The swim event held at the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre includes crafts and activities and a visit from Santa. On Dec. 18, Trail Kiwanis is sponsoring a free skate with Santa from 5:45-7 p.m. at the arena in the Trail Memorial Centre. The family skate includes free hot chocolate and $1-slice pizza. “It’s a really great opportunity for people who can’t usually afford to go skating or for the families who struggle with going out and getting pizza,” said Jolly. “It’s really nice to see that this is an event for everybody.”

Plan under construction to offset increases FROM PAGE 1 “There may be possible processing delays for any residents who have requested recreation services starting in the new year. We will also be cancelling all B.V. resident TRP cards effective January 1st, 2014. We weren’t anticipating this and considerable resources will now be required to implement the change.” Since the five-year agreement commenced in 2009, following the collapse of the Regional Recreation Service when all Greater Trail communities contributed to recreation and culture as part of the regional service, the Beaver Valley communities have contributed $200,000 per year with a yearly increase based on the BC Consumer Price Index. “Beaver Valley was the first community to strike a recreation agreement with the City of Trail five years ago,” said Ali Grieve, Area A director and chair of BVPARTS. “The BV Rec Committee when considering renewal repeatedly asked the city for stats on how many B.V. residents were accessing city facilities and programming,” she continued. “The city said they could not do this and we thought it a very fair and basic question, ‘How many B.V. residents are taking advantage of this agreement?’” added Grieve. According to the committee’s newsletter posted on the regional district website, an administration process is currently under development to offset many of the costs for users in the Beaver Valley communities. The recreation committee will hold a public forum early in the new year to seek direction and input from Beaver Valley residents on what they want for recreation opportunities, said Grieve. “We will develop our own program to help families offset some additional costs incurred.” David Perehudoff, Trail’s chief administrative officer, countered that Trail has always tried to be transparent with respect to the agreement and the benefits Beaver Valley residents receive. “Clearly with 30 per cent of the TRP cards issued, the city’s facilities and services are being well used by B.V.,” said Perehudoff. “This as evidenced by the number of TRP cards we issued,” he explained, adding, “With Beaver Valley paying 6.16 per cent of the city’s gross operating costs not including capital in 2013.”

Labour leaders show support for IBEW workers By Art Harrison Times Staff

Over 100 area union members, family members, and provincial labour representatives braved the bitter cold Saturday afternoon in a show of support for locked out FortisBC employees. Representatives of the United Steelworkers Local 480 and Local 9346 in Sparwood, the Kootenay Columbia Teachers Union (KCTU), the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union (COPE), the Nelson and District Teachers

Union, the Hospital Employees Union, and the West Kootenay Labour Council, gathered outside of the Fortis offices in downtown Trail and listened, applauded, and offered cheers of support for the over 200 locked out members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 213 and jeers and cries of shame for FortisBC. “This lockout has been completely unnecessary and it’s hurting communities and hurting the employees,” said Jim

Sinclair, president of the B.C. Federation of Labour. “This company makes good money and they should get this fixed by Christmas.” Susan Lambert, past president of the B.C. Teachers Federation, Katrine Conroy, Kootenay West MLA, David Black, president of COPE, Armindo deMedeiros, president of USW, Local 480, Alex Hanson, president of USW Local 9346, Andy Davidoff, president of KCTU, and Rod Russell, business manager for IBEW Local

Start of counter-attack season nabs limo/bus By Times Staff The Trail and Greater District detachment has kickstarted local efforts in the counter-attack program to crack down on drunk driving. The initiative started Saturday night, when 166 vehicles were checked and as a result one 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition suspension and two roadside suspensions were given out, according to RCMP

Sgt. Rob Hawton. “No charges were laid for impaired driving,” he said. “I don’t have other data at hand to indicate if this is high or low, but anecdotally I think it is on the low side.” At approximately 10 p.m. that night a limo/bus with 15 passengers was stopped at a check point on Victoria Street in Trail, where it was discovered that the passengers, all

under 19 years of age, were openly drinking alcohol. “The liquor was seized and the driver, in his late 40s, was issued an appearance notice to attend court for allowing minors to consume liquor,” added Hawton. “Everyone should be aware that a professional limo or bus service is not exempt under the Liquor Control and Licencing Act.”

213, all had words of support and thanks for the locked out employees and sharp criticism for the company’s handling of the lockout that has stretched on for over six months. Discussions between the company and union last week ended, once again, with no resolution but FortisBC has since then invited the IBEW to enter into binding arbitration in order to settle the dispute. “The decision to enter into Binding Interest Arbitration now sits with the union,” Joyce Wagenaar, director of communications for FortisBC, said in a media release. “If the union leadership accepts it, then we can proceed; or the leadership may want to take it to the membership for a vote. Then, if the process of binding arbitration is accepted, our employees would immediately return to work with the outcome of the

arbitration process to follow at a later date.” As eager as the locked out employees may be to return to work and paycheques, the IBEW bargaining committee is cautious about committing to the arbitration process. “The international vice president of the IBEW approached Fortis and we went back to the table last week,” said Local 213’s Russell. “We gave them three options to consider with no ultimatums, we were willing to talk. They said ‘no’ so we broke it off. “The next day they called with the invitation to binding arbitration. The members are concerned about arbitration, things didn’t go well with (mediator) Vince Ready. We’ve fought this far to negotiate but we’ve got to move forward. I don’t know how that’ll happen. Right now I guess we’ll consider all options.”

Marijuana referendum petition fizzles By Jeff Nagel Black Press

The Sensible BC campaign to spark the decriminalization of marijuana in B.C. is officially up in smoke after falling short of its goal. Pot activists got 210,000 signatures or about two-thirds of the 300,000 needed –  10 per cent of voters in all 85 B.C. ridings –  for their initiative petition to potentially trigger a referendum. They had aimed for a target of 450,000 to provide a buffer against disqualified signatures. “It’s a pretty remarkable accomplishment,” Sensible BC head Dana Larsen. “We’ve definitely demonstrated a high level of organization and support for this cause. Had we been

operating under the rules of pretty much any other referendum system in the world, we would have qualified to be on the ballot.” He said the 4,500 registered petitioners – triple the number at the start of the 90-day campaign  –  reached the threshold required by Elections BC in 19 electoral districts and got at least eight per cent in five more. Successful local campaigns happened on much of Vancouver Island, the Kootenays and other parts of the Interior. But in the vote-rich Lower Mainland that holds the most districts, marijuana advocates came up short. They reached the 10 per cent threshold in just Vancouver-West End and Vancouver-

Mount Pleasant, with no other local wins in the rest of Metro Vancouver or the Fraser Valley. They came closest in the three North Shore ridings with eight per cent plus. Sensible BC aimed to compel the province to pass legislation banning police from expending any time and resources on simple marijuana possession. Larsen said canvassers were harried in some areas by opponents and at times by calls to police as they tried to collect signatures on SkyTrain and BC Ferries. The outcome is nowhere near the 700,000 signatures gathered by Fight HST forces en route to their winning referendum. But Larsen argues

Nanaimo

City considers corporate sponsorship By Tamara Cunningham Nanaimo News Bulletin

Selling the names of civic facilities to corporate sponsors could pump millions of dollars into city coffers, according to a Nanaimo city councillor supporting a look at naming rights. The City of Nanaimo is exploring the potential to cash in on naming rights for playing fields to public buildings, with aims to fill budget gaps and raise new revenue. It’s not alone. Cash-strapped municipalities across the country are looking to corporate sponsors for alternative  revenue to keep taxes down and user fees in line. While there is criticism that the economic returns and privatization of public spaces isn’t worth the sale of naming rights, local governments that have partnered with corporations say deals have been a win. The Cowichan Valley Regional District named its Cowichan Community Centre after Island Savings in a $1-million, 10-year deal that pays for annual capital improvements for the facility while the Regional District of North Okanagan covers the operating costs for Kal-Tire Place – a multi-purpose arena – with a four-year $145,000 contract. Coun. Bill McKay and Mayor John Ruttan both see the potential for sponsors to help the City of Nanaimo in similar ways. Naming rights deals for ice sheets to parks and arenas could generate multi-million dollars in new revenue to fund more trails, fields rinks and facilities without the need for higher taxes, McKay said.

RCMP defend actions in bear shooting By Aaron Orlando

Revelstoke Times Review

Revelstoke RCMP are defending their decisions and actions after a bear was destroyed in the Big Eddy on the evening of Sunday, Dec. 8. The incident started in Farwell when police responded to complaints from residents about the young bear roaming in back yards. Eventually, three police vehicles attended and tried to shoo the bear away. Their efforts, which involved using sirens, lights and hurling chunks of ice at the animal, soon attracted a crowd of onlookers, creating dangerous moments. Revelstoke RCMP Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky said some of the onlookers got between the police and the bear, and some disobeyed orders to leave the area. Grabinsky said at one point one bystander asked police to move out of the way because police were blocking his cell phone video shot. Grabinsky said some people got within about seven metres of the stressed and agitated bear. “As the [police cruiser dashboard] video will clearly show, they were between us and the bear,” Grabinsky said. “It appears that the higher priority is getting that cell phone shot than their own … safety.” After about 45 minutes, police corralled the bear across the Big Eddy Bridge and shot it. Noting the bear hadn’t yet denned down, Grabinsky said it was obviously habituated to humans and a danger to the community. “The bear had no fear of people and vehicles.The bear actually started gnawing on the front bumper of one of our vehicles,” Grabinsky said. “The objective was never to shoot the bear.” The incident caused a backlash on social media in Revelstoke, where some attacked police actions as cruel and unnecessary. Others defended the police response, saying a human-habituated bear in a residential neighbourhood in December is an obvious problem and safety concern. “I’m saddened to see the way we’re being roasted in social media,” Grabinsky said. “I hope they make comments when they’re aware of the full situation.”

Ontario

G20 cop sentenced THE CANADIAN PRESS BRAMPTON, Ont. - A Toronto police officer convicted of assaulting a protester during the G20 summit was sentenced Monday to 45 days in jail. Const. Babak Andalib-Goortani was convicted in September of assault with a weapon for using excessive force during the arrest of protester Adam Nobody on June 26, 2010, on the lawn of the Ontario legislature. Ontario Court Judge Louise Botham delivered Briefs the sentence after hearing submissions from both the Crown and defence. “Citizens will respect the rule of law when they can be confident that those with the power to enforce our laws do so fairly,” said Botham. The judge said it was an aggravating factor that Nobody was already on the ground surrounded by other officers at the time of the assault. She also noted AndalibGoortani’s name tag and badge weren’t visible. “I can only conclude this was a deliberate act on the defendant’s part to make it harder for people to identify him.”

Newfoundland

Major funding coming THE CANADIAN PRESS ST. JOHN’S, N.L. - Federal and provincial sources say Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Kathy Dunderdale will announce financing details today on the Muskrat Falls hydro project. Her office says the premier will make a “significant” announcement at an evening news conference in time for supper-hour newscasts. Backing from Ottawa is expected to save about $1 billion in borrowing costs from the $7.7-billion project under construction in Labrador. A major hurdle was cleared last month when Nova Scotia’s Utility and Review Board approved the $1.5-billion Maritime Link. The subsea link would bring Muskrat Falls power to Nova Scotia.

Saskatchewan

Fans line up for brew THE CANADIAN PRESS REGINA - Fans of a once-a-year holiday beverage in Saskatchewan kept up their tradition of queuing overnight for the treat, even though they had to endure wind chill temperatures below -40 C. Eleven hours before Regina’s Bushwakker Brew Pub released its 2013 edition of blackberry mead on Saturday, there was a lineup forming outside its doors. Close to 100 others were also there, including many in ice fishing shacks. Last year’s batch of 6,000 bottles sold out in a little over an hour.

MPs to debate bill to revoke pensions from convicted colleagues

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The Commons is set to debate a bill this week that would revoke the pensions of MPs and senators convicted of indictable crimes. Conservative MP John Williamson’s private member’s bill appears to have some momentum, at a time when three of his former Tory colleagues from the Senate are facing RCMP allegations. Bill C-518 has already gotten the thumbs up from Treasury Board President Tony Clement, and also appears to have the backing of the NDP. Under the proposed legislation, any MP or senator convicted of an indictable offence that carries a minimum sentence of two years in prison would only keep

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Canada’s much-scrutinized housing market showed signs of softening last month, with starts falling a little further than expected but still to levels many analysts consider too strong to sustain. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. said Monday housing starts declined to an annualized rate of 192,235 in November, three per cent lower than October’s result and about 3,000 fewer than economists expected. Most of the weakness was concentrat-

ed in Ontario, which saw a drop of 16.6 per cent, and in Atlantic Canada, where starts fell by a whopping 24.8 per cent. But condo building in British Columbia drove starts there up 12.5 per cent and the Prairies and Quebec saw gains of 9.1 per cent and 0.8 per cent respectively. The Bank of Canada and the federal government have long fretted over housing in Canada, fearing that if it continues to rise above potential it will result in a sudden and damaging crash once interest rates start

sion,” said Williamson. He noted that a similar law in Nova Scotia has already resulted in a convicted former provincial legislator losing his pension. NDP Leader Tom Mulcair sent an email in response to a member of the public this fall saying the “NDP will support this legislation.” “New Democrats welcome these changes,” Mulcair wrote in a copy of an email obtained by The Canadian Press. “However, we feel that this is a half-hearted attempt by the Conservative government to restore its reputation badly damaged by the growing number of scandals on its watch.” The bill is scheduled for debate on the floor of the Commons on Tuesday.

rising, triggering an overall economic slowdown. Analysts say the ideal situation is for the market to slowly decline, but not crash and burn. “It’s a step in the right direction but not aggressive enough we need the number to go to about 180,000 (annualized),” said Benjamin Tal, deputy chief economist with CIBC World Markets. “But this is not a housing market that is melting,” he added. “People who expected to see a crash and smoke will be disappointed.”

Economists believe starts should average about 175,000-180,000 annually in order to absorb demographic growth in Canada. Still, housing is moving in the right direction, analysts said. The market heated up somewhat during the summer and early fall, but November’s num-

bers suggest there has been a levelling off. RBC economist Laura Cooper noted that despite the recent gains, starts so far this year have averaged 187,600, well below the 215,000 pace set for 2012 as a whole. She expects next year to settle in at about 180,000.

Patrick Brazeau and recently retired Sen. Mac Harb have been the subject of police allegations of fraud and breach of trust, with Duffy also accused of bribery. No charges have been laid in connection with any of the investigations and the allegations have not been tested in court. But Williamson, former national director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, says the inspiration for the bill came to him when former Liberal Senator Raymond Lavigne retired shortly after he was convicted of fraud and breach of trust in March 2011. “I remember the reaction of many Canadians who said, here’s a senator who’s been found guilty of breach of trust and is keeping his pen-

what they put into the pension plan, losing the generous government contribution. But while the offence must carry at least a two year sentence, the convicted parliamentarian doesn’t need to have served that long to be penalized. The penalty would also apply retroactively to conduct that occurred prior to June 2013. The misdeeds need to have taken place at least in part while the person was serving in Parliament. The proposal comes at a time when three senators and one former colleague are facing RCMP allegations related to their expense claims. Suspended Senators Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and

Ottawa puts on a pipeline push

T

he federal government stepped up its sales pitch for new pipelines to the B.C. coast last week, as it prepares for the imminent release of the federal review panel’s report on the feasibility of the Enbridge Northern Gateway project. Transport Minister Lisa Raitt and Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver arrived in Vancouver to release an expert panel’s report on the current state of tanker safety on the West Coast. It was the first of two reports that tell the Stephen Harper government in blunt terms how steep a hill it must climb to enable energy exports to Asia. Oliver gave a speech to the Vancouver Board of Trade the following morning, where he vowed to implement one of the panel’s key recommendations. Legislation is coming to ensure that polluters, not taxpayers, must

pay for any environmental damage from resource development and transport. The panel was chaired by Gordon Houston, a former Prince Rupert harbourmaster and CEO of Port Metro Vancouver. Its report details the littlenoticed fact that coastal waters around Victoria and Vancouver are already congested with shipping traffic, including Alaska oil tankers, and are at “very high risk” of an incident. Of course that “very high risk” should be seen in the B.C. context, where there has never been a serious oil spill at sea in a century of continuous petroleum shipping. The report calls for potential polluters to show they are prepared for a “worst case” discharge like the 1989 Exxon Valdez grounding in Alaska. It tells Ottawa the Canadian Coast Guard must be properly funded to serve as incident com-

mand. Oliver recounted efforts made so far, including annual tanker inspections, increased aerial surveillance and marine markers. And he reminded his audience that Canada’s only energy export customer, the U.S., is about to surpass Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest petroleum producer. The second federal report was from Doug Eyford, a lawyer who has been meeting for months with aboriginal communities in northern B.C. and Alberta.

He found, as Enbridge has reported, that many aboriginal communities are working with energy producers to get the economic activity they so desperately need. (Most urban people likely don’t believe this, because the conflict-addicted media report mostly protests.) Eyford’s report is no whitewash either. It reminds Ottawa that B.C.’s unresolved aboriginal title and a general lack of trust of both the energy industry and the federal government are key obstacles to the largest economic opportunity in the world today, the rise of Asia. Eyford was dealing with the profusion of gas pipeline projects that are set to cross northern B.C., as well as the Enbridge and Kinder Morgan Canada oil proposals. The entrenched opposition is against oil, particularly heavy oil in tankers. Politics and protesters aside, these are the facts for B.C. The prosperous

provinces in Canada today are Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland, based mainly on energy development. The rest are struggling. B.C. continues to lose skilled workers to Alberta, where oil sands development continues to expand despite the continuing chorus of U.S.-financed misrepresentation of its environmental impact. It’s a key moment in Canadian history. This is where we see if we can go beyond our status as a client state of the U.S. This year’s B.C. election, where pandering to urban protest backfired on the NDP, suggests a new seriousness in the public mood. More people understand today that our comfortable modern society with free-access health care is a fragile thing. We have it better than most of the world, for now. Tom Fletcher is B.C. legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Warnings differ for cable shows

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Violent dramas on the broadcast networks carry milder parental cautions than cable shows like “The Walking Dead” but can equal them in graphic gore, a failure of the TV ratings system, a new study found. Scenes of stabbings, shootings, rape, decapitation and mutilation invariably received a TV-14 “parents strongly cautioned” rating on network TV, according to the Parents Television Council study released Monday. But similar fare on cable typically was given the most stringent label, TV-MA for mature audiences only. Networks find it financially vital to avoid applying TV-MA ratings, Winters said, which scare off advertisers.

Letters to the editor

Kind gesture appreciated

They are likely to work more hours than less – up to 19 more hours a week than their desk bound colleagues – before feeling burned out. They will work from home, car, coffee shop and occasionally even from offices. The hours they choose to work will suit their own preferences, even at night, which will allow for better customer service, especially across time zones. Why should today’s organizations care? According to Maitland and Thompson, the first reason is the quality of their work forces, whether employees or contractors. The best and the brightest will no longer accept outdated limitations on their work. A second reason is being a greener company. If fewer employees have to fight rush hour traffic twice a day and if less office space is needed, the company carbon footprint is reduced. A third reason is savings. Having a happier and more productive workforce and less overhead brightens up the bottom line. I have been doing future work for over 20 years. I left a traditional job when I was told I had to be in a certain place at a certain time and there was no work related or other reason for me to be there. I am now self-employed both as a Troy Media columnist and as an economist, with my work and deadlines defined by my editors and customers. I can work anywhere, any time, as long as I meet the deadlines with quality work. Welcome to the future. Troy Media BC’s Business columnist Roslyn Kunin is a consulting economist.

Last Thursday, Angus REID of the B.C. Lions and Tracy Porteous from the Ending Violence Association of B.C. came to the Riverbelle Restaurant in Trail for a presentation of “Be More Than a Bystander,”a ground-breaking initiative on understanding the impact of men’s violence against women. The program’s message is to encourage an examination of the attitudes and behaviors that allow intimate partner violence to happen in our society and encourage people to become part of the solution. The evening’s events were hosted by the Trail Integrated Case Assessment Team (ICAT) which is a newly formed partnership that provides risk assessment and support services for victims of highest risk intimate partner violence. The ICAT team members include representatives from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, RCMP VictimServices, Specialized Victim Services, Ministry of Children and Family Development, Mental Health and Substance Use and Community Corrections. The event was a huge success with over 100 people attending.

Team Canada wins gold TORONTO, Ont. – Trail’s Mike Mondin and Canada’s National Sledge Hockey Team has won the gold medal at the 2013 World Sledge Hockey Challenge, beating the United States 3-1 in Saturday night’s gold medal game at the MasterCard Centre for Hockey Excellence. Mondin, a J. L. Crowe instructor, is in his third year as head coach of the national sledge hockey team. Mondin led the team to gold at the IPC World championship last April, and, more recently, at an Olympic primer in Sochi last month. On Saturday night, Billy Bridges and Greg Westlake scored goals 32 seconds apart and added an assist each in a three-goal first period, as the Canadians did all of their scoring in a span of 3:52 of the opening frame. Adam Dixon had the other goal for Canada, while Brad Bowden added two assists. Canada finished first in the preliminary round with a perfect 3-0

record, including wins over Korea (5-2), Russia (5-3) and the U.S. (4-1). The Americans came second at 2-1, followed by Russia (1-2) and Korea (0-3). Earlier Saturday, Evgeny Petrov scored the winner with just 1:11 to go as Russia earned the bronze medal with a 4-2 win over Korea. Dmitriy Lisov had two goals, and Alexey Amosov added one for the Russians who, like the Koreans, were making their World Sledge Hockey Challenge debut this year. The tournament is the last major international event before the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games, which will be held March 7-16 in Sochi, Russia. It is the fifth time Canada has won gold at the tournament.

Trail Smoke Eater AP Sheldon Hubbard puts the stop on Merritt Centennial forward Diego Cuglietta, but the Cents forward would ultimately escape to set up former Smokie Shane Poulsen for the winning goal in the 4-3 victory over the Smokies at the Cominco Arena Sunday.

Smokies close but no cigar By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

A pair of former Trail Smoke Eaters came back to haunt the Smokies in back-toback one-goal losses to the Langley Rivermen Friday and the Merritt Centennials Saturday at the Cominco Arena. The Smoke Eaters took a 3-2 lead into the third period but couldn’t hold it as the Cents scored twice in the final frame including the winner by exSmokie Shane Poulsen for the 4-3 victory Saturday. On Friday, diminutive netminder Lyndon Stanwood was huge stymieing the Smokies in a close 3-2 decision. The win enabled the Cents to keep pace with the Salmon Arm SilverBacks who beat Langley 4-1 on Saturday. The two teams are currently tied for third place in the Interior division with 37 points, behind a surging Vees team, 44, that is currently enjoying a four-game winning streak, and hosts the Smokies on Wednesday. In the loss to the Cents, after a

Smokie penalty, the Centennials set up the box and Sebastien Pare and Diego Cuglietta worked the puck to Poulsen who blasted a point shot through the screen and by a helpless Adam Todd for the winner at 9:31 of the third. Braeden Pears opened the scoring for the Smoke Eaters taking a pass from Sheldon Brett, flying down the left wing and ripping a shot off the post to put the orange and black up 1-0 at 3:35 of the opening frame. However, Merritt would tie it three minutes later when Rhett Wilcox stripped the puck from the Smokie defender and walked in on a breakaway. Todd made a good pad save but Wilcox banged in the rebound to tie it. Merritt would take a 2-1 lead when Adam Tracey sniped a breakaway shot stick side on Todd, but a great effort by Brett chasing down the puck and dishing to Travis Stephens who made a slick move to the net and wired it by Adam Kero to make it 2-2 at 12:39. One minute later,

Adam Wheeldon deflected a Jake Lucchini shot to put the Smokies up 3-2 heading into the third period. However, Trail failed to hold on as Jeff Wight would snipe a wrist shot off the faceoff to tie it 3-3 at 5:56 of the third, before Poulsen would settle it with his blast from the point. The Smoke Eaters tried to find the equalizer but couldn’t beat Kero in the final minutes despite some wild scrambles and added pressure. Todd was solid in net for the Smokies stopping 44 shots and earning third star on the night. On Friday, Langley grabbed a 3-1 lead but Trail’s Brian Basilico would draw

the Smokies within one with just over five minutes to play, however, the home team was denied the equalizer, as former Trail goalie Stanwood made his debut in net for the Rivermen, and stopped 34 of 36 shots for second star honours and the victory. Stephens, the Smoke Eaters’ leading scorer with nine goals and 13 assists, scored the other goal for Trail. The Smokies next home game goes tonight when they host the BCHL’s leading scorer Landon Smith and the Salmon Arm SilverBacks at 7 p.m. at the Cominco Arena. In a special offer, admission for all children and students is a toonie, and for all adults just $5.

Hawks soar over Bruins Bomb Dynamiters By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

Defenceman Sheldon Hubbard made an impressive return to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks’ line up after an AP stint with the Trail Smoke Eaters Saturday. With the hiring of Smokie coach Nick Deschenes a sense of detente has settled over the cold war that recently raged between the Hawks and Smoke Eaters, renewing relations between the KIJHL and BCHL teams. Hubbard suited up for his second match with the Smoke Eaters Saturday night and played a solid game on the blue line in a 4-3 loss to Merritt before returning to the Hawks for a Sunday afternoon 6-2 win over the Grand Forks Border Bruins. The 18-year-old Grand Prairie native netted a hat trick and added an assist in a game which saw the Nitehawks dominate. “You don’t see that too often, the defenceman getting three goals, but it was really nice to see and it kind of seemed like he found a sweet spot on their goaltender there with the high blocker, but he’s got a great shot and he used it tonight,” said Nitehawk assistant coach Jeremy

Cominotto. After a 3-2 overtime loss in Spokane to the Braves Friday night, the Hawks were up bright and early helping Santa serve breakfast to hundreds at the Fruitvale Hall Saturday morning. The Christmas spirit aided the fledgling Hawks as they traveled to Kimberley later that day where they pummeled the Dynamiters 5-1 then spread the same Christmas cheer to Beaver Valley fans in Sunday’s triumph over the Bruins. “We battled hard, three games in three days and a little bit of travel in between. The guys came out and had a great effort. Everyone chipped in, our back-end got on the board and kept the ball rolling for us.” Hubbard netted the winner at 2:42 of the second period when he took a nice setup from Braden Fuller and Riley Brandt and wired one over the shoulder of Bruin goalie Kai McDonald. “We’re starting to get together and playing a lot better,” said Hubbard. “Just being in the right spot, the guys dialed-in in front of the net, and getting the job done . . . It feels great, you get the win the two points and make a climb on Nelson here.” See BEAVER, Page 12

meetings. “As most people know, I was very lucky to have a lot of people in the organization really develop and help me become the player I was able to become,” Halladay said at a press conference . “And (with) the organization and the support of the organization, from the front office to the coaches to the players, it really turned my career around and it made a big difference in my career and that’s why I’m very fortunate to retire as a Blue Jay.” Halladay spent his final four major-league seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies and went to great lengths to express his sincere gratitude to that organization and its fans. However, he also said he wouldn’t have been able to get a shot with a World Series contender if not for the Blue Jays.

THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG - Brad Jacobs sealed his right to represent Canada at the Olympics with one more big-weight double Sunday afternoon. “You’re throwing that double to win the game,” he said after beating John Morris 7-4. He said his third, Ryan Fry, told him it was coming. “Fry said it to me, ‘You’re going to have a double either way here and we’re playing it.’ So my mind was already wrapped around some big weight shot before I even threw it.” Jacob joins Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones, who defeated Sherry Middaugh 8-4 Saturday night to win the women’s slot, the one prize that has eluded her in a championship-filled career. Jacobs went into the game as the favourite, after earning his final spot by sweeping the round robin seven straight with a hard-hitting, muscular, fist-pumping brand of curling that delighted the crowd. From 2006 to early this year Morris was Kevin Martin’s third and part of the 2010 gold medal winning team in Vancouver. He came from behind to beat Martin in the semifinal to earn the right to play Jacobs. Morris signed on to skip Jim Cotter’s Vernon/ Kelowna rink this year with Cotter moving to third but throwing fourth rocks, with Tyrel Griffith at second and Rick Sawatzky at lead. Morris said they had their chances. “Especially after five, being tied up at five, if we could have blanked the sixth end I think it would have real tight coming home,” he said.

Fernie Ghostriders 7-2 on Friday. Meanwhile the resurgent Braves also beat the Border Bruins by an identical 3-2 overtime win on Saturday to draw within one point of the fourth and final playoff spot,  currently occupied by the B’s. Braden Fuller started the scoring midway through the first per-

iod, picking up a loose puck in a goalmouth scramble and sneaking it under McDonald. Archie McKinnon made it 2-0 sniping a shot from the slot for his first goal of the season to go with 19 assists, before Michael Rand got Grand Forks on the board, with a nice tip in on a Connor Gross pass.

Hubbard would net the only goal in the second period, but the Bruins Dakota Kittle would cut the lead to one at 14:08 before B.V. rattled off three unanswered goals. Hubbard sent a pass from Mitch Foyle into the top corner to make it 4-2 before Kyle Hope potted his own on a nice dish from McKinnon.

Then with two seconds left on the clock, Hubbard would step into a Dan Holland pass, and rifle it again over the blocker of McDonald. In upcoming KIJHL action, the top two teams in the division, the Leafs and Hawks, will battle it out at the Hawks Nest on Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

Macklemore and Lewis’s gay marriage anthem “Same Love” was among song of the year nominees and the Seattle rap crew joined Los Angeles rapper Lamar with seven nominations apiece. The Grammy Awards will be presented Jan. 26.

Box Office

Audiences warm up to ‘Frozen’

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - In its second weekend at the box office, the Disney animated tale “Frozen” cooled off “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and the lone new release “Out of the Furnace.” According to studio estimates Sunday, “Frozen” led the multiplexes with a haul of $31.6 million over the weekend, taking over the top spot from “Catching Fire.” Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games” sequel had topped the box office for the last two weeks, but slid to second with $27 million in its third week of release. Relativity Media’s steel-town drama “Out of the Furnace,” starring Christian Bale and Casey Affleck, posed no challenge for the bigger blockbuster holdovers. It opened with $5.3 million, good enough for third place on the typically quiet early December weekend.

New feelings toward co-worker may not be romantic Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

There are different types of jealousy. Amanda seems to be a popular girl. If you consider yourself to be straight, you should examine whether your jealousy is romantic in nature or whether it’s the type that female friends develop when one of them picks a different “best friend.” If you want a romantic relationship, let Amanda know by asking her again to lunch, dinner, a movie or other entertainment outside of work. If she is repeatedly “busy,” it means she is not interested. Dear Annie: Seven years ago, my closest cousin died. His wife

was being bullied by her co-workers. This happened to me when I was younger. One day, one member of that group gave me some advice. She said, “Play dumb and pretend you don’t know they are talking about you. Always be pleasant, say ‘hello’ and ‘good morning’ to everyone, even when they do not respond. Join them in the lounge. Make a pleasant general comment, and then turn to your magazine or whatever you have to do. Always have something to occupy your time. If you have to ask anyone a question about work, ask it in the lounge in the presence of everyone. If they make a nasty comment, just brush it off and pretend that you didn’t realize it was nasty. When you really need a breather, occasionally go off on your own, but don’t make it obvious.” And I also made it a point to look fabulous every day. This may not appeal

to everyone in such a position, but it worked for me. It was terribly hard for the first few months, and then it became a routine. Eventually, the ringleader asked me where I was when I didn’t come into the lounge the day before. After

that, I was completely accepted by the group. I have lived by that rule ever since and have passed it on to my children. One cannot fight with someone who will not fight. You keep your dignity and, above all, gain their respect. It works

in school, at the workplace and even with your own family. -Yvonne from Montreal Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

wanted me to have his wardrobe, which included a tuxedo. This cousin’s daughter is going to be married soon, and the wedding is black tie. Would it be proper to wear that tux? I don’t intend to broadcast the fact that it belonged to her late father, but it seems wearing it would allow a part of him to watch his only child marry. What do you think?

Dear Annie: I’ve been employed for two months at a large retail outlet and have gotten to know many of the people who work there. “Amanda” is in the food section, and I am in the clothing department.

I asked Amanda to dinner the other night, and she turned me down, saying she had plans. Yesterday, another co-worker told me she saw Amanda having lunch with a woman who works in the automotive section. The co-worker said the two of them were very touchy. This made me really jealous and sad. Should I tell Amanda I have feelings for her? If so, how do I do that? -Confused and Maybe in Love Dear Confused:
