Charges are pending against a Grand Forks area rancher after two horses in critical distress were euthanized and eight others were seized from the ranch last weekend by the SPCA in the wake of receiving several complaints about the emaciated state of the animals. Marcie Moriarty, chief prevention and enforcement officer for the B.C. SPCA, said the organization had been at the ranch located just outside of Grand Forks on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 and “executed a warrant on a property in the Grand Forks area.” She would not confirm the name of the rancher nor the address as it was an ongoing investigation. “As a result of attending on the property with a veterinarian, two horses were identified and were found to be in what is described as critical distress and were euthanized on site,” she said. Any decisions regarding the animals were made at the scene, Moriarty added. Eight other horses were surrendered by the owner and they were removed from the property. She confirmed that charges may be forthcoming against the rancher. “We’re waiting for the vet’s report and depending on what’s contained we may be recommending animal cruelty charges to Crown counsel,” said Moriarty.

GE foods forum feeds information to region


Grand Forks Gazette

The Grand Forks Seniors’ Centre was the host for a seminar on genetically engineered (GE) foods and human health—a crossCanada speakers tour on Dec. 5.

The seminar featured speakers Dr. Thierry Vrain and Dr. Shiv Chopra speaking about the risks of GE foods from a scientific point of view. “It was very informative,” said Sheila Dobie, president of the Grand Forks and Boundary

Regional Agricultural Society. “There was lots of stuff to be learned by the community. I think it was an excellent event.” After the speakers were finished, members of the audience were invited to ask questions. One of those asking questions was coun-

cillor Gary Smith, who operates a pest management business in the region. He was also the only councillor opposed the recent vote to have Grand Forks be known as a “GE free city.” Smith asked if glyphosates (found in Round-up pesticide) had been found

in urine, doesn’t that mean it has travelled through the body and is not affecting people. “If you’re saying that we’re all eating pesticidelaced foods, are we? Are you sure? And how is it affecting us?” asked Smith.

Development slated for rec. lands CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The city’s recreation lands could be undergoing further development with an outdoor fitness park as regional district staff continue to investigate options for the real estate. At the Grand Forks and District Recreation Commission meeting on Oct. 3, board members asked staff to proceed with planning and budgeting for the recreation centre site development project, and bring as many partners to table as was necessary to make it a feasible and successful project. The main project is to put in an outdoor fitness park similar to one existing at Christina Lake, said John Mackey, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary director of recreation and facilities.

“We’re looking at putting in a slightly larger one in the space between the aquatic centre and the skateboard park,” he said. “We’ve had some preliminary discussions with the City of Grand Forks because it would be on their property. So we’re working on developing that open space next spring.” Mackey says the recreation commission will be making a presentation to Grand Forks city council regarding the proposed development some time in the new year. Under the project, the undeveloped land on the recreation centre site is to be “landscaped and developed,” according to recreation commission minutes from Oct. 3. The opportunities that exist, in addition to the fitness park, are a picnic area, spray pool and a community garden.

The Rotary Club is looking to develop a water/spray park in the city, the commission was advised. Abandoned well The RDKB has inherited an abandoned well that was on the recreation property when the ownership of land and facilities was transferred from the city. “We’ve done a fair amount of alternative energy projects over the years here (at the rec. centre) such as solar heating, heat recovery and airto-water heat pumps,” said Mackey. “With the abandoned well on the parking lot … we’ve looked at possibly doing some geothermal recovery from the well,” he said. Mackey added the project was in very preliminary stages and wouldn’t likely see the light of day for several years.

POLICE BRIEFS Vehicle loses control On Friday, Nov. 29 at 10:50 p.m. an RCMP constable from Cranbrook, who was driving a marked police vehicle through the area, lost control of the vehicle near Billings Road in Christina Lake. “The constable hit ice and did a 180-degree spin across the centre line and went off the road to the left,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “There was severe damage to the police car which had to be towed away.” No injuries were sustained. Sliding off the road At 11:20 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1 near Whitehall Road, a car slid off the road and hit a culvert and then a fence. “The vehicle was found on the side of the road,” said Harrison. “The owner had reported the accident and then left.” There were no injuries in the accident but there was extensive damage to the vehicle. The driver is a 20-year-old male from Grand Forks. Driver, baby taken to hospital after accident On Dec. 4 at 12:17 p.m., RCMP as well as fire fighters and EMS attended a single vehicle accident on Highway 3 near Christina Lake. “Upon arrival, crews found the female driver and her infant son had received minor injuries and were taken with cuts and bruises to Boundary Regional Hospital in Grand Forks,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. The vehicle was severely damaged. The driver was a 31 year-old female from Penticton. “The vehicle went off the road on a sharp, blind corner striking the rock face,” said Harrison. “A semi truck driver stopped and rendered assistance, giving first aid until the arrival of emergency personnel.” Harrison said the accident was related to road conditions which were icy and snowy. “The driver entered a counter clockwise yaw and entered the side of the road on the left side,” he said.

Truck hits the ditch On Dec. 3 at 7:28 p.m., a pick-up truck ended up in the ditch on Highway 3 east of Christina Lake. “The driver declined medical assistance and said he already called a tow truck,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “There was no indication of the damage to the vehicle.”

Funding helps complete Living Arts Centre’s green roof CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) board of directors voted recently to support the request from the Christina Lake Chamber of Commerce for gas tax funding from electoral area C for the purchase and application of the sedum/moss living roof for the Christina Living Arts Centre. The roof, which was completed in 2011, has allowed the centre to keep expenses low and to continue to be a first rate green facility. “That was among the final touches for the welcome centre and part of the leed construct,” said Grace McGregor, RDKB Area C direc-

News tips

tor. “They borrowed money to complete that. What I’m doing is paying that back for them because it comes under what you can use gas tax money on.” Bob Dupee, chair of the Christina Lake Arts and Artisans Society and project manager for the construction of the arts centre, said having the living roof at the centre is hugely beneficial. “The sedum/moss is designed to withstand a lot of temperature extremes, droughts, and that kind of thing,” he said. “It upped the value of the roof. When we get flash rain storms in the summer, instead of the roof just pouring off water like it did–it just absorbs water. It’s like a big

sponge.” Dupee said the roof helps regulate the temperature of the arts centre, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. “It adds a thicker layer of insulation in the winter,” he said. Dupee said the building operates at a low cost with all the energy efficient projects within its walls and above. “If you’re investing money into a project initially, what you want to do is put the money in places that will save you money in the long run,” he said. “If you look at the electric bill there compared to your average building of that size, it’s probably half of what you would normally be paying.”

Living roof being applied by Dave and Ryan Durand of Durands Nursery.

your news view


‘Tis the season

oads around the city and rural areas have now been adequately layered with snow and ice, cobbling up a perfect rink for in-turns and out-turns. It’s not officially the roar of the rings on Grand Forks roads, but the action does seem to be hurrying hard towards the ditches in most cases as winter driving conditions are swept in. Given that this happens every winter—roads becoming perfect curling rinks—for those who have lived in Canada for a number of years and driven on winter roads, it should be common knowledge that the normal posted speed limit (for optimal conditions) does not apply. After you hit the ditch or the bumper of the vehicle in front of you, it is easy to blame the city or the road contractor for not cleaning the roads enough, but the onus often lies with the person behind the wheel. Granted, sometimes there are no reasonable actions that can be taken to stay in your lane and out of the ditch, but a little lighter touch on the gas pedal goes a long ways to keeping it between the lines.

second opinion



hat a relief to have the Canadian news media focussing on the celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and his remarkable impact on South Africa, rather than the base buffoonery of a big city mayor. And what an instructive juxtaposition. South Africa, whose majority was new to the democratic process, identified and elected a man in 1994 who was able to lead that country through an incredibly dangerous period: many wanted revenge on the white minority; many feared for their lives in anticipation of lawlessness. However, Mandela and those around him managed to create an atmosphere

of reconciliation and respect for the rule of law. Contrast that with what we have seen lately in this country. Voters here have a long involvement with democratic practices. We brag about how democratic our institutions are. We cluck our tongues at the failed attempts at democracy around the world. Yet we have elected men and women who refuse to hold to account those among them who commit acts that are, if not criminal, at least dishonest. We laugh at the infantile behaviour of some elected officials and shrug our shoulders at the unethical behaviour of others. Mandela refused to sit a second term as president, confirming his belief that those in power must serve the needs of the nation, not their own ambition. Here, our elected officials always deny mistakes and misbehaviour, refusing to step down, refusing to give up power,

vowing to fight for re-election in spite of their obvious unsuitability for public office. Our nation does not require elected officials with the unique and extraordinary characteristics of a man like Nelson Mandela in order to survive. It does however require individuals with at least some of Mandela’s characteristics, men and women who believe in the rule of law and the value of ethics, and who understand the role that dignity and honour serve in the maintenance of public office. That isn’t too much to ask. In every community there are individuals who possess those characteristics and who have the intelligence and will to lead. It is up to the public and the political parties they support to find them and put them forward as candidates for election, and then hold them to account. That shouldn’t be too much to ask; it should be the least we expect. Jim Holtz is a Boundary-based writer.

to the editor

Questions arise on water meters To the Editor Re: Residential Water Meters During the summer of 2013 council approved updated bylaws on water sprinkling, including fines for contravention of bylaws. This year, city staff has been reassigned and we now have a bylaw enforcement officer. Has consideration been given to enforcing the wateruse bylaws, and whether that alone would result in adequate reduction of usage, making it unnecessary to impose expensive residential water meters? Or is council’s insistence on meters their method of admitting the bylaws are meaningless and unenforceable? Following the Sept., 2013 UBCM conference, it was reported at council that the provincial government requires residential water meters be installed before they will even consider infrastructure grant requests (not

“approve,” but “consider”— there are no guarantees grant funding will be forthcoming). Any infrastructure grants received comes from taxes we have already paid the provincial government. Council states $1.3 million of gas tax rebates (taxes already taken from our pockets) will be used to finance the purchase and installation of residential water meters. There is not even a whisper of provincial government help with future expenses associated with the meters. So, is it fair to assume we, as municipal taxpayers, will be on the hook well into the future for such things as cost of training staff on this new technology, annual operational expenses, maintenance, repair and eventual replacement of this technology (more taxes for us to pay)? These days it seems technology is obsolete the day

after purchase. This council, and previous council, have already demonstrated their propensity to use income generated from the electric utility as a cash cow ($410,000 siphoned from the electric utility account and dumped into the general account in 2013—no other city utility account is treated in this manner at present). Will this council, and future councils, be able to resist the temptation of treating the water utility account in the same manner? For those residences with vegetable gardens, will the rates imposed by council make it financially impossible for us to have vegetable gardens? What happened to council’s goal to have residents consume locally-grown produce, and what is more local than our own backyards? Sylvia Treptow, Grand Forks

In support of Kevin, Sheila and their horses

To the Editor: I have known Kevin and Shiela LaFond for almost 20 years and have a horse right now that they rescued from a ranch in Kamloops. This is what they do for a living and they have a strong passion for the ponies they deal with. This is what people don’t realize, or in some cases refuse to believe: many of these horses come from homes where they are not wanted anymore, some are in okay

shape but many are in terrible shape. If possible, they will try and relocate these horses to a new home, and yes, some have to go to a ‘packing house.’ For the high percentage of us that have dogs, don’t turn a blind eye to where your dog food comes from. The fact is the old owners could have shot them and nobody would have known about them, or maybe Kevin and Shiela could find a home for those in reasonable

shape. They are trying to make a living, and maybe I don’t see everything that goes on there, but I know Kevin and Shiela well enough to know they care about their animals. Here’s an idea, not indicating anyone in particular: but those that drive by and criticize the way Kevin and Shiela are running their ranch could next time lend a hand with his shelter or donate some feed of some sort.

Not everyone is wealthy or has a government job with ample funds and time to try and run somebody else’s affairs. Many of us disagree strongly how our regional district and provincial government regulate us to death. Shame on the SPCA or whoever had the power to make Kevin shoot two horses on his own property. In support of Kevin, Shiela and their horses. Marty Thomas, Grand Forks

Thumbs Up to BodyEdge Fitness

Thumbs up to everyone who has donated money and or food to the Whispers of Hope Community Kitchen and donated items to the newly opened Whispers of Hope Thrift Shop. Thumbs up to OK Tire for the best and fastest service I have ever had, mounting a new set of four tires in 30 minutes. Go Grand Forks. Thumbs down to lack of snow plowing on Almond Garden Road West. If you only plow half of the road, why bother at all? A huge thumbs up to the Philippino community that prepared a fantastic fund-raising supper at SHP. The food was delicious and the company was great. Thank you. Thumbs down to the city for their poor snow removal over the weekend. Thumbs up to all the people who helped create the Friends of the Library’s amazing cookie sale.

Thumbs down to the extremely hazardous conditions in the hospital parking lot. Bumps and ridges of solid ice make for very unsafe walking. An application of sand would help. Thumbs up to BodyEdge Fitness for donating a huge truck load of food and a large cheque to our local food bank in Grand Forks. Way to show your support in the community, you and your membership rock. Thumbs up to the Zumba Kings (Patrick, Richard and DJ) for complementing our Zumba team performance at this year’s Dance Extravaganza. Great job guys. Thank you. Would you like to give a thumb up or a thumb down? Email with Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down as a subject line. We could publish your anonymous submission. Attacks on specific businesses and people will not be published. Editor’s discretion will always be exercised. Please keep it tasteful. A5

The great equalizer

Lack of engagement is an issue that political parties must address sooner than later and citizens everywhere should demand that they do.


n a democratic society all citizens have a right to vote, but should they bother? Why is the act of casting a ballot Rousing so important? Does it make a differthe Rabble ence if they avoid voting? ROY RONAGHAN British Comedian Russell Brand has caused a stir in Britain with his comments about not going to the polls. He says that voting legitimizes a system that doesn’t work. It only encourages those who run for office and they come from a narrow cast of actors that don’t represent him. Do you agree with Brand? The matter of the value of the individual vote was on the agenda on the morning of Saturday, November 2, 2013, when the BoundarySimilkameen New Democratic Party riding association held its annual general meeting at the Senior Hall in Grand Forks. The guest speaker was to have been Carole James, former party leader, but personal circumstances prevented her from attending. In her place, Michelle Mungall, Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) for the Nelson-Creston riding spoke to the group. Mungall talked about the value of the vote and the importance of motivating people under age 30 to vote in civic, provincial and federal elections. In Mungall’s view they are the ones who will bring about social change across Canada. During her talk, Mungall commented on Brand’s statements. She does not agree with him and says that having a vote is the great equalizer in our society. Whether a citizen is poor or rich, the head of a corporation with power and influence or a celebrity, they are equal when they enter a polling station. According to Mungall, voters under 30 years of age are more liberal in their thinking than those over 50 and during the 2012 election campaign much of her campaigning was directed toward younger voters. She went to the places where the young people hung out such as the pubs and the coffee shops. During her door-to-door campaigning she was accompanied by a younger person accompanied her. The reaction of people was usually one of surprise. The approach worked for Mungall and was re-elected with 50.73 per cent of the vote. Her closest rival got 28.32 per cent. Mungall has traveled to Africa and the Ukraine to work with women engaged in establishing democracies. In those jurisdictions people take voting seriously and they will stand in line for hours to exercise their right to mark a ballot. Their behaviour is in sharp contrast to the behaviour of half the Canadian population. Elections BC states that there are 3.1 million eligible voters in B.C. but only 1.8 million (58 per cent) cast a ballot. Abraham Lincoln said that in a democratic society the government is of the people, by the people and for the people. That is not the case in our contemporary so-called democracy and could be the reason for voter apathy. They don’t feel a need to be engaged. A short time after the 2013 provincial election B.C. Insights West conducted a number of polls to try to determine why eligible voters didn’t go to the polls. Insights prepared a list of 11 possible reasons and asked for responses. The reason at the top of the list of responses for voters in the 35-54 age bracket was “none of the candidates deserved my vote.” Thirty nine per cent of those younger and 40 per cent of those older gave this reason. What would a candidate have to do to gain the confidence of voter under these circumstances? Lack of engagement is an issue that political parties must address sooner than later and citizens everywhere should demand that they do. Proposals for change cover a range from voting on line, voting at any polling station, offering a voting “carrot” (payment) and a voting “stick” (fine), If you are as disillusioned as Brand what would change your mind?

Letters A7

to the editor

This century’s greatest threat to our health? To the Editor: Thursday evening (Dec. 5) happened to be the first time I’d ever paid close attention to what might just be the greatest threat to the physical wellbeing of humankind this century. My wife and I made a last-minute decision to attend the Grand Forks’ edition of a cross-Canada speaker’s tour highlighting “Genetically Engineered Food and Human Health” as hosted by our local agricultural society, and presented by experts in the fields of biotechnology, microbiology, human rights, and our nation’s food regulatory processes. (The entire presentation should be available at www. and Whereas GM and GE once caused many of us to envision automobiles and electricity, these acronymns should now alert us to the very real impacts of genetically-modified and genetically-engineered foods. As with all such issues there are two sides to every coin. Hence we were encouraged to investigate further via www. where a free download is available—a 123-page document on “GMO Myths and Truths.” For example, “the GM crop industry and its supporters” claim that GM crops: • are an extension of natural breeding and do not pose different risks than naturally bred crops • are safe to eat and can be more nutritious than naturally bred crops • are strictly regulated for safety • increase crop yields • reduce pesticide use • benefit farmers and make their lives easier • bring economic benefits • benefit the environment • reduce energy use • will help feed the world. On the other hand, “a large and growing body of scientific and other authoritative evidence shows that these claims (above) are not true” and that GM crops:

• are laboratory-made, using technology that is totally different from natural breeding methods • can be toxic, allergenic or less nutritious than their natural counterparts • are not adequately regulated to ensure safety • do not increase yield potential • do not reduce pesticide use, but increase it • create serious problems for farmers, including herbicidetolerant “superweeds”, compromised soil quality, and increased disease susceptibility in crops • have mixed economic benefits • harm soil quality, disrupt ecosystems, and reduce biodiversity • do not offer effective solutions to climate change • are as energy-hungry as any other chemically-farmed crops • cannot solve the problem of world hunger but distract from its real causes. Driving it all home was the declaration that while 64 countries (including all of Europe, China, India, Brazil, and Australia) now have at least partial (if not complete) bans on the use of GM/GE crops, Canada and the U.S.A. do not. North America currently has 500 million acres of geneticallymodified food crops. This comprises an area roughly the size of British Columbia and Ontario combined. The Grand Forks region will either become a GE-free zone or it will not. As we make informed decisions on this very important topic, let’s be certain to call our local councillors. Two of them were present at Thursday’s presentation, and both were eager to share and/or learn more. A precedent was recently set in Quebec at the municipal level, whereby it was established in a court of law that a community (Hudson) could dictate its own future in this matter. Because GE food already plays a large part in our daily lives, there’s no such thing as hiding our heads in the sand regarding

We are trying to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience during this time. If you require assistance with your account, please contact City Hall at (250)442-8266. Thank You

Scared Silly... Information on GE, GMO foods offered up for public To the Editor: Last night (Dec. 5) I attended a meeting sponsored by the local agricultural society and GE Free B.C. featuring speakers Dr. Thierry Vrain and Dr. Shiv Chopra. The speakers explained issues regarding genetic engineering and concerns for human and environmental health. During a questionand-answer period at the end of the presentations, city councilor Gary Smith brought forward some of his views, which were in opposition to those presented by the speakers. It became almost embarrassing to hear him carry on in such a reactive, and in my opinion, disrespectful way, particularly considering to whom he was speaking. Dr. Chopra, a former top Health Canada scientist, has stood up for truth in opposing unsafe drugs destined for use in Canada, to the point where he was fired for his actions. His dedication to telling the whole truth of an issue, in spite of knowing the consequences, is something that all of us, including coun. Smith, should emulate. In a letter to the editor in the Sept. 18 issue of the Gazette, I encouraged your readers to read two books, Silent Spring, by Rachel Carson, and The World According to Monsanto, by Marie-Monique Robin. I will be loaning these books, as well as the DVD of The World According to Monsanto, which was coproduced by the National Film Board of Canada, to coun. Smith for him to examine.

PUBLIC NOTICE Thank you for your feedback regarding snow removal in the community. Below are commonly asked questions we receive after a heavy snowfall. Why does the snow plow leave a windrow in my driveway? Plow operators must plow snow to the curb or right hand side of the road, and have limited control over the amount and direction that comes off the blade. The plow blade is at a set position, and does not have the ability to swivel around driveways and crown of the road. When clearing your driveway, try to pile the snow on the right side (standing in your driveway and looking towards the street). This can help reduce the amount of snow that is pushed onto your driveway when a snow plow passes. Can the snow plow operators lift the blade at every driveway? In order for our snow plow operators to provide the most efficient and cost-effective snow removal, continuous movement is required. With hundreds of driveways in the City, it is not practical or cost efficient for plow operators to lift their blades at every driveway. Since our main goal is to safely open roads as soon as possible, lifting the blade at each driveway would slow down the snow removal operation significantly and would leave snow in the road that may in turn be a hazard to motorists.

city_ snow

Can the snow plow trucks plow all the snow to the other side of the street where there are no sidewalks or driveways? The snow plows are designed to plow snow to the right hand side of the road. In order to plow all the snow to one side, the equipment would have to drive on the wrong side of the road creating an unsafe traffic situation and this would take more time which means the streets not serviced yet would have to wait longer. It is not an effective cost method based on the current level of service the City of Grand Forks provides. Can I place the snow from my driveway or parking area onto the traveled portion of the street? Residents are encouraged to avoid pushing or blowing snow from their sidewalk or driveway into the street because it is potentially creating a dangerous situation for motorists. By placing the snow back onto the roadway after a plow truck has gone by creates issues for our snow removal crews. The plow will need to make an additional run down your street to clean it up which increases City’s costs with additional staff time, fuel and equipment wear and tear, not to mention delays in getting to other areas of the City that also need to be plowed. When will our street be plowed? After a snowfall, the streets are prioritized based on our snow removal policy No. 1103 and 1104, which outline the priority areas. Within the standard, the Priority 1 streets include such streets as main arteries, bus routes, hill areas and streets leading to schools and public buildings, and emergency services; once Priority 1 is complete, then the City will clear Priority 2 and Priority 3 streets. In such circumstances, some residential streets may not see a plow for an extended period. These situations are the exception and we ask for your patience. To view a copy of the Snow Removal Policy adopted by Council, please visit our website at for further information. Can the City’s snow plow operators plow my driveway? The City of Grand Forks does not perform work on private property. Clearing snow is the responsibility of the City Public Works department and the community; help keep the community safe this winter! Here’s how you can help: • The City will ensure that all roads are passable as soon as possible. This is our number one priority. • Park your vehicles in your driveway as opposed to the street. • Stay back a safe distance from the rear of a plow truck so the driver can see you. • Please avoid passing or driving beside plow trucks. • Please avoid placing snow from your driveway back into the street. Less snow will be pushed into your driveway by passing plow trucks. • If you can, help your neighbour with snow removal.

The City is committed to providing great service to our community and appreciates your feedback. Phone: 250-442-8266 • Email: • Web:

am often asked the question, “how do you like Victoria?” Well, Victoria is a beautiful city and I enjoy my time there, but MLAs have a range of responsibilities that also bring us to different regions of the province. As a member of two parliamentary committees, I attend meetings with MLAs from both parties. In addition to this, as Parliamentary secretary, I spend time working with the Ministry of Health to make sure that we are addressing issues facing seniors, not only in my riding, but throughout the province. At home, I have taken advantage of the recent good weather to get out in the Boundary almost every week, as well as to the Similkameen Valley, and any place where there was an event or meeting that I could get to. Our constituency office handles a very interesting assortment of issues. The majority of our calls come from people who have problems of a more personal nature, and need help working through a particular government agency or department. We act as a resource to guide people through the appropriate procedure or system. We are not an agency that can change or bend existing rules for people, but we can advocate on their behalf, and direct them to the appropriate department. The upcoming holiday season brings joy to most, but unfortunately sadness to others, as we reflect on the past year. It is an important time to gather with friends and family to


celebrate or remember loved ones who have passed. For many seniors who are alone, this can be a very difficult time for them. Take a moment out of your busy lives to check up on a senior in your neighborhood who is alone during the holidays. As a community, we can all take the time to make sure their sidewalks and pathways are clear of ice or snow, and reduce the risk of injury when they go out to get groceries or visit friends. It’s the small things we do for others, showing kindness and compassion, which truly reflect the spirit of the holiday season. If you are passing through the Oliver area, please stop at my constituency office on Friday, Dec. 20, between 3-6 p.m. for our holiday open house. We will be serving some sweet treats and would love to see you there. The office will close over the holidays, but emails and phone calls will still be returned. I’d like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year’s, and a healthy and prosperous holiday season. Linda Larson is the member of the Legislative Assembly of B.C., representing the Boundary Similkameen, which serves Grand Forks and area.

The deadline for the FortisBC Energy Diet is looming, but enrollment is lower than expected in Grand Forks. Nicole Bogdanovic, FortisBC communications specialist, said there are some participants from Grand Forks that have completed upgrades as part of the Energy Diet and are now enjoying the energy saving benefits, but people entering the program in the city is still quite low. However, the deadline to register is Friday, Dec. 13. In the FortisBC electric service area—which includes Grand Forks through the Grand Forks Electrical Utility—50 per cent of the energy people use in their home is for space heating alone, while the next largest amount is for water heating at 20 per cent. Through the Energy Diet, people who own a home can get a home energy assessment for a very low cost—only $60 (cost is usually $300 plus travel time). The next 20 people that sign up from Grand Forks will pay only $35. The city is contributing a $25 incentive to the first 100 people that sign up and there are still 20 of these spots available. But the deadline to purchase and install the products is Dec. 31. For LiveSmart BC rebates, the deadline to upgrade and complete a postassessment is March 31.

In order to meet our press deadlines and give staff some much needed rest...

A book under every tree The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy’s annual program Books Under Every Tree is underway with donation boxes throughout the community. Donations of gently used or new books can be placed in boxes at the Credit Union, the Grand Forks Recreation Centre, Perley and Hutton schools, Selkirk College, Silver Kettle and the Grand Forks Library. Books are given to the Christmas Hamper program through the Gospel Chapel, ensuring that all families and hamper recipients will be greeted this Christmas with a new book to add to the family library. This family program has been running for almost 10 years and is coordinated by the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy.

Buy local app for meat Producers, retailers, chefs and consumers will receive enhanced information on B.C. meat products through two projects the BC Association of Abattoirs is running as a result of $63,250 in Buy Local Program funding. The first project is a smartphone app that will connect residents and tourists travelling throughout the province with information on B.C.’s meat and poultry products. The B.C. Meats for B.C. Markets phone app will allow users to locate farms, stores and restaurants that sell or have B.C. meats on their menu. The second project will help the association expand its B.C. Beef Quality Information System to encompass all red meats including lamb, goat, pork and bison. The system began as a pilot project and has enabled abattoirs to streamline their traceability and food safety systems while providing feedback to livestock producers on meat quality. The system provides retailers and chefs with assurance the meat products they are purchasing are from provincially licensed abattoirs. Learn More: BC Association of Abattoirs: B.C.

The SPCA constables at the ranch were from the Okanagan as well as the Lower Mainland. “We brought in additional staff from the Lower Mainland because of concerns regarding the possible number of animals involved,” said Moriarty. “We need to be prepared anytime we enter on a warrant. But we come with the intent with the veterinarian determining whether animals are in distressed and each and every animal is assessed.”

Keeping the lake mussel-free

“It was more looking at where they’re coming from,” she said. “Seeing if they’re coming from those high risk areas that have the mussels. Likely, those are the guys that are going to be transporting them.” The annual review meeting featured several speakers who gave presentations on a number of key issues regarding Christina Lake. Ling said the forum went very well with over 70 people in attendance. “I think it went awesome,” she said. “Everybody was really receptive and into keeping our lake clean and healthy. I think it’s awesome to have that community involvement.” Among the speakers were: Brenda LaCroix, stewardship coordinator and project manager, who gave a report on the CLWMP annual progress report; Mike Sokal, environmental impact biologist, environmental protection division, Ministry of Environment, who talked about the 2013 water quality review; and Andy Gilmore, scuba diver crew supervisor, environmental services, RDKB, who spoke about the Eurasion Watermilfoil program at the lake. Facilitating the meeting were LaCroix and Grace McGregor, RKDB Area C director.


Grand Forks Gazette

Vigilance and a proactive attitude is the key to keeping Christina Lake free of the invasive Zebra or Quagga mussels, says the senior stewardship assistant with the Christina Lake Aquatic Invasive Species program. Heather Ling said the region’s biggest lake does not currently have any issues with the invasive mussels but people need to remain wary of unwittingly transporting them to keep them out. Speaking at the Christina Lake Stewardship Society’s annual review meeting for the Christina Lake Watershed Management Plan (CLWMP) and Implementation Strategy on Dec. 4, Ling said the lake does have other invasive species like the Eurasian water milfoil, the fragrant waterlily and the curly leaf pond weed, as well as 13 introduced fish. Last summer, in conjunction with the Christina Lake stewardship, a mussel monitoring program was launched, as well as an education component with public outreach, said Ling. The group was set up at the Texas Creek boat launch three days a week and tried to im-

press upon people the need to check for mussels on a boat before putting it into the lake. “It was a great spot,” Ling said. “We could be visible and just get our information out there. We saw 219 boaters in all.” The program was not mandatory for boaters, she said, and they did not inspect boats entering the lake but they were able to provide education for boaters using the lake.

IN BRIEF share a bear

The Share a Bear program began in B.C. liquor stores in 1989 and has grown over the years to donations of well over 40,000 bears to children and families in need. New this year, all stores will be having an in-store contest, a chance to win a “big “ bear. The groups receiving the bears this year are the Boundary Lodge, Jenna Edwards (to the right), Boundary Women’s Coalition Allie Dickson (middle) and Boundary Family and Individuals Services Society, Christine Carlson. (On the left) LDB employee Margaret Laktin is holding the big bears to be given away in the contest.

Family traditions are things that families do together on a regular basis. These things can be patterns of behavior, enjoyable activities or a certain food that a family likes. They can be repeated daily, weekly, monthly or once a year. It is important for families to observe their traditions even as their children get older, here are five reasons why: Family traditions create good feelings and special moments to remember. Family traditions give every member of the family a stronger sense of belonging. Family traditions help your child with his/her identity. Family traditions help parents impart the family’s values to their children. Family traditions offer your child a sense a security. taken from

Pilot fitness project planned for arena CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC) is going ahead with a pilot fitness project in the arena’s viewing room in the new year. “We are going to be setting up and starting to operate a new circuit weight training facility in the arena’s lower viewing room in January,” said John Mackey, RDKB director of recreation and facilities. The regional district received a donation of fitbness equipment from a gym that closed down, in addition to some other equipment that it has purchased. “I think it’s going to end up being a 16-station circuit facility for registered programs through the department,”

said Mackey. He expected the new fitness room would take the pressure off the busy fitness room at the pool. “We have limitations over at the fitness room in the aquatic centre,” he said. “At most, we can handle 14 people for a class, so we were turning people away.” The new space will allow the regional district to handle up to 25 people at once, considering it is about one-and-ahalf times the size of the other space. Mackey said moving circuit classes from the aquatic centre to the new fitness room at the arena would also open up space at the old fitness room. “For the drop-in people that come to the pool and just want to work out, one of the complaints we’ve received is that

people show up to work out and can’t get into the gym to work out,” he said. “So if we move the registered programs to the new space, the drop-in gym at the pool would be more available to the public.” Flexus partnership Grand Forks recreation staff were requested to investigate opportunities to partner with Flexus gym in the provision of fitness services. Staff reported there was no consensus among the department staff and patrons on the benefits of such a partnership, with proximity seeming to be the biggest barrier. “We had some discussions, but we’re not in a position to enter into any agreements with them,” said Mackey.

IN BRIEF Trails agreement well supported

This is expected to be a great boost to the donations campaign for this year’s dinner, to be held Wednesday, Dec. 25 at noon in the Gospel Chapel gymnasium.

Cold weather creates power spike SUBMITTED

to the Grand Forks Gazette

Cold weather in the region is leading to higher electricity demand. As the temperatures stay well below zero degrees Celsius, BC Hydro is expecting an increase in the overall provincial electricity use. Electricity demand peaked at 9,102 megawatts on the Dec. 2 evening between 5-6 p.m. This compares to a peak of only 8,723 megawatts Nov. 25. Generally, BC Hydro sees the highest demand for electricity between 4-8 p.m. on weekday evenings—the time of day when people come home, turn up the heat, do their laundry, make dinner, switch on the TV, etc. BC Hydro expects demand to stay high in the evenings this week and into Christmas as the

cold weather persists throughout the province, possibly peaking at 10,000 megawatts this week. The highest peak demand on record was observed on Nov. 29, 2006, when consumption reached 10,113 megawatt, between 5-6 p.m. People can take steps to reduce energy use to offset an increase in heating requirements. Easy ways people can save on their daily power use include: washing clothes in cold water, turning off the ‘heat dry’ function on the dishwasher and using a programmable thermostat to heat their house only when they are home. Most of the electricity generated and used in B.C. is produced by large facilities in the north and the southeast of the province from the Columbia River facilities. The electricity is distributed to cities and towns using 76,000 kilometres of distribution and transmission lines.

The proposed Boundary Country Trails Agreement by the Grand Forks ATV Club was well received by all supporting the initiative at a Nov. 27 meeting on the issue. The meeting was attended by over 50 per cent of the original groups that signed the agreement with regrets sent before the gathering by several other groups. Many groups would like to see their trails represented on the planned kiosks and their trails signed, creating a network of trails for all users. Once completed the trails would be safer for all and be used by more folks, making maintenance easier, and the worse thing for a trail is lack of use as nature takes over quickly, said Doug Zorn, a member of the Grand Forks ATV club, in a press release. “Unfortunately, there was a lot of discussion about vandalism and irresponsible users, how to cope with the few who demonstrate these tendencies,” he said. Some of the partners in the project—including the RCMP, the City of Grand Forks, regional district areas C and D, and the Ministry of Lands and Forests—were all discussed. During the meeting the why, who, where, when, and how were all discussed, leading the way to the next meeting Wednesday, Jan. 15 when all interested groups will meet again moving the proposal forward. The groups aim to achieve a safer local trails system with multi-use trails and a better understanding of all the different user groups.

New building code requirements On Dec. 20 new energy efficiency requirements for the BC Building Code will come into effect. Developers will have a choice of energy efficiency standards for complex buildings (Part 3). This includes large residential, industrial, commercial and institutional buildings. It does not include houses or small buildings. Developers can choose to use either the 2011 National Energy Code for Buildings or ASHRAE 90.1 (2010), creating greater flexibility for the construction industry: • Adoption of the National Energy Code for Buildings harmonizes B.C. with the national code development system and addresses the province’s climatic and construction practices. • ASHRAE is an older, well-respected standard. Using ASHRAE in B.C. will require the use of Canadian climate data and ventilation rates from the BC Building Code.

Talent for the cause

The people of Grand Forks showed their generousity by helping Grand Forks Secondary School’s (GFSS) Global Citizenship Club raise almost $2,000 at their Philippines relief effort talent show fundraiser on Dec. 11. There were about 15 different performers, both from the school and from the community, that volunteered their time to perform for a good-sized crowd.

Christmas on parade Story, photos by CRAIG LINDSAY Grand Forks Gazette

It was a chilly evening, but a good crowd was still on hand on and around Market Avenue Dec. 6 to see the Santa Claus parade go through downtown Grand Forks. The theme for this year’s parade was “A Crafters Christmas.” Winning first place among entries for following the theme closely were Citizens of Patrol. Coming second were the local girl guides, who featured several Girl Guides carrying beautiful hand-made lanterns. Finishing third was the River Valley Community Church float. The evening also featured photos with Santa at the credit union, a hot chocolate fundraiser for the Grand Forks Skating Club, Rotary Club kettle corn and Christmas caroling with the Grand Forks Choral Society.

to the Grand Forks Gazette

Recruitment for Head Start for Young Women has begun in Grand Forks. As of Nov. 28 young women between the ages of 16-24 are being sought for a program that discusses civic issues as they relate to women, in an effort to increase the participation of women in municipal government. Funded by Status of Women Canada, the program takes young women from six Canadian communities to work with their local elected officials to identify and address barriers that limit opportunities for young women to participate in municipal decision-making. Grand Forks city council and councilor Cher Wyers will join other members of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and local leaders from across Canada in meeting face-toface with young girls in the community. “I recently saw an interview with actor and activist Robert Redford during the U.S. government shutdown and he said very clearly that it is time to hand the reins of government over to women and young people,” stated Wyers. “While at the FCM conference in June, I attended a session on young adults and municipal government” moderated by Erin Hogan, deputy mayor from the City of Thompson and

chair of the FCM’s Standing Committee on Increasing Women’s Participation in Municipal Government. Erin introduced FCM’s action to increase the role of women in municipal government from coast to coast to coast.” While women make up over 52 per cent of the Canadian population, only 25 per cent of the country’s elected municipal representatives are female. By contrast, the United Nations defines 30 percent as the minimal percentage of women required for government to reflect women’s concerns. To close that gap, 1,471 more women would need to be elected to municipal office—100 more women each year from now until 2026. Head Start for Young Women is one element of FCM’s broader program to increase the number of women in municipal government. In 2005, the FCM established the Standing Committee on Increasing Women’s Participation in Municipal Government, which is composed of 24 elected municipal officials from across Canada. In line with the U.N. target, the committee is working to ensure women make up 30 per cent of Canadian municipal councils by 2026. Further details about the Head Start for Young Women program are available on the FCM website at http://

On Saturday, Dec. 7 the staff of BodyEdge Fitnesss—from left, Tory Stavenjord, Sonya Wood and Al Clark (owner of BodyEdge)—braved sub-zero temperatures to deliver a huge truckload of food and a large cheque to Larry Dickerson of the Grand Forks Food Bank, raised by the BodyEdge membership. Why was the donation made? “Because we are a passionate community and love to help one another,” said Wood, hoping it may inspire others to donate also from the heart.

“Yes. I’m sure,” countered Vrain. “If you find it in your urine it had to go through your intestine. It kills the bacteria in your intestine.” Smith told Vrain that, “it stirs up fear.” Smith attempted to follow up his question with a statement, but was told it was someone else’s turn to speak. The councillor eventually left. “He, unfortunately, misunderstood the intention of the evening,” said Dobie. “He thought it was a debate and it really wasn’t a debate. He made comments and tried to ask some questions but it was more of a debate-type that he was (interested in).” Smith told the Gazette he was hoping to get more answers from the speakers at the forum on serious questions he had brought up. “I had asked several questions, because there was several points from the first part I attended that I had wanted some

that point at the urging of many in attendance. Smith said the debate about genetically engineered food and health still needs to happen. “It’s a very complicated topic,” he said. “It’s not worth just two or three slides. There’s way more to it.” He added that the whole pest control industry is moving towards softer, target specific chemicals. “As an integrated pest manager, I try to use chemicals that are softer on the environment and less impactful,” said Smith. “I want the workers to be able to return safely after a short interval, and I also don’t want to kill the other insects out there that are helping to do the job.” The event was sponsored by the Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society; Alex Atamanenko, Southern Interior MP; and the National Farmer’s Union.

In a class on abnormal psychology, the instructor was about to introduce the subject of manic depression. She posed this question to her students: “How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits down weeping uncontrollably the next?” A young man in the rear raised his hand and suggested earnestly, “A football coach?”

Grace McGregor, Area C (Christina Lake) director, has been chosen as board chair for the Regional District of the Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) at the board meeting on Dec. 5 in Trail. McGregor won out over Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor. She replaces Larry Gray, who was board chair for two consecutive years. McGregor told the Gazette she was thrilled to be chosen and will work hard to represent the region. “Larry informed me a few months ago that he was not going to run again as board chair,” she told the Gazette. “He decided he didn’t want to do that again. I think that he wants to spend time with his family and I understand that.” McGregor said she learned a great deal under Gray. “I’ve been the vice-chair the last two years with Larry Gray,” she said. “I’ve enjoyed every minute I’ve spent with that man. He’s a wealth of information and he’s very solid and very even-

tempered. I’ve learned a lot from him.” McGregor said that before the vote occurred she had spoken to all board members about her seeking the nomination. She said that what’s important about being chair of the regional district is knowing how it works. “I’ve been at that table for eight years, so I know how the regional district works,” said McGregor. “Because we have five other electoral areas, you need to understand each electoral area and their needs and their issues. You also need to understand the municipalities which function differently than the regional districts do. So there’s quite a learning curve.” McGregor said there are several key issues that the RDKB will be looking at heading into her year-long term such as expansion, sewage and economic development. “Every area has a different issue and sometimes you have no issues–you go along smoothly,” she said. “It’s very interesting. I consider it a pleasure to be able to be chair. You get to really, really work with everybody and their needs.”

Show a Huge Success! The GFSS Global Citizenship club hosted a talent show fund raiser for the Philippines Relief Effort on Dec. 4th. Hailey MacLellan and Annika Plotnikoff gave an excellent performance along with more than a dozen students and community members who volunteered their talents. The talent show generated $1700.00 which when added to bake sale proceeds and in-school donations brings the total raised by the club to a whopping $2700.00. When combined with federal matching funds, GFSS students have contributed $5400.00 towards Philippine relief.

The Ski Club is Extremely Awesome

The GFSS Ski Club has run for over 20 years (this is what I recall Ms. Vowell telling me.) There have been many local legend educators involved such as Bill Duff, Doug Wille, RobTempleton, Scott Campbell and Andrea Vowell. Currently three staff members have volunteered to run the club. These are Mr. Garrison, Ms. Argue and Mr. Reimer. All of the teacher sponsors have volunteered to help with the club because they want to share their passion of skiing/ snowboarding with the students of GFSS. The mandate of the club is to give students from our school the opportunity to experience ski hills around our region that they wouldn’t likely visit at a reasonable cost. Many of the students who sign up for the ski club are kids that haven’t been involved in other extra curricular clubs at our school. These individual sport stars

create quite a different group dynamic than a team sport group and the culture is fun loving, relaxed, respectful of the envioronment and light hearted. Ski Club trips have gone to hills within southcentral and southeastern British Columbia. Recent trips have included Fernie Mountain Resort (Fernie), Revelstoke Mountain Resort (Revelstoke), Whitewater Resort (Nelson) Red Mountain Resort (Rossland), and Big White Mountain Resort (Kelowna). We are currently planning our 2013/14 two night/day trip to Silverstar near Vernon. The club might also be doing a day trip to Red Mountain in late Feb. The Ski Swap is put on annually by the Ski Club and brings the local ski community together for the first time each year. The Swap always happens near the end of Nov. and gets people geared up and fired up for the upcoming

ski season. While it is essentially a fundraiser, the purpose also doubles up as somewhat of a community service as it provides many families with reasonably priced equipment for growing children. Often families need to replace equipment due to the fact that children grow so quickly and often times buying band new gear is not an option. The Ski Swap is a place where families can afford to update euqipment for kids annually. It’s also a great place to liquidate older equipment that might not be needed anymore. Phoenix Mountain, Nancy Greene Development Program and the Marshall Lake Ski Society have booths at the swap most years. This year our ski swap raised $1300 which will offset some of the busing costs for our ski club trip to Silverstar. We are proud of the great work done by the members of our Ski Club.

GFSS Spirit Makers


“It’s important that students feel a sense of school connectedness” School spirit is about taking the time to support your school and its integrity; something students at GFSS have been excelling at this year. Student Council, with some help from Mrs. Fraser and Mr. Reimer, have been getting involved; running assemblies and making some changes of their own within the school. They have split grades, 8 through to 12, into four separate “houses” by homeroom. Timber, Arctic, Honshu, and Mountain Wolves. These houses encourage friendly team competition and more importantly they give students somewhere to belong and a sense of identity. Older students will mentor the younger students and

Grade 8’s next year will find lifelong friends among their housemates. As Mr. Stewart said, “It’s important that students feel a sense of school connectedness. Having at least two adults they can talk to within the school makes students much more likely to have a happy, successful school life.” Student Council’s increased involvement in assemblies has resulted in the students speaking for themselves and a greater show of school spirit among the student body. Student Council’s Tanning-is-Out campaign last year is a great example of our school pride here at GFSS. Ninety-six percent of students signed the petition aimed at reducing

tanning, and future tanning-related problems among students. An extremely active group, The Global Citizenship Club, have been contributing within the school; speaking at assemblies, holding fundraisers, and working diligently. Bringing pride to the black and red colors of the GFSS Wolves, the Global Citizenship Club has shown that school spirit is more than just being passionate about learning - it’s about getting involved and working to make a difference. With more than a semester left in the school year GFSS is looking forward to more student activities and school pride in our school. Keep up the great work everyone!

Bruins bruised in two divisional games on weekend CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

It was a rough weekend for the Grand Forks Border Bruins. Two losses to divisional opponents, 6-2 to Beaver Valley and 3-2 in overtime at home to Spokane, have reduced the Bruins hold on the fourth and final play-off spot to one point over the Braves. Head coach Kevin Flather said he believes the players deserve a better fate than they’ve had recently. “The overtime loss (to Spokane) and the loss in Beaver Valley didn’t represent how well we played,” he said. “There is a difference between just losing a game and losing it badly. These were two examples of not getting the bounces on a certain night. It was just a tough weekend.” Flather said he isn’t upset with the play of the boys and that he feels they actually played quite well. “We played good enough to win,” he said. “Good enough right now, isn’t good enough. That’s where we have to take our game: to the next level. We have to play well enough to control our fate so we don’t have to rely on getting the breaks.” Bruins 2, Beaver Valley 6 With a chance to end

their losing streak and gain two points on a division opponent, the Border Bruins pulled up lame in Beaver Valley. The Nitehawks went ahead 2-0 early with goals from Braden Fuller and veteran Archie McKinnon. Michael Rand got the Bruins on the board with a power play marker at 1:25 of the first period to cut the BV lead to 2-1. Sheldon Hubbard got the first of his hat-trick late in the second to give the ‘Hawks a 3-1 edge. Dakota Little reduced the BV lead to 3-2 at 14:08 of the third, assisted by Connor Gross and Rand. From there on it was all Beaver Valley, as the Fruitvale squad rattled off three unanswered goals to pick up the 6-2 win. “It was pretty much a 3-2 hockey game,” said Flather. “It’s a perfect example of (needing to) control our controllables. Tightening up our defensive zone is a perfect example of that. That’s solely our responsibility.” Flather said the Bruins don’t have any trouble scoring goals, the problem is stopping them. “We can’t be letting in four or five goals a night,” he said. “You just can’t do that and expect to win.” Bruins 2, Spokane 3 (OT)

Playing in front of a sparse Saturday night crowd, caused in no small way by the chilly outdoor temperatures, and missing several key players, the Grand Forks Border Bruins lost a tough overtime thriller to the Spokane Braves. Kurtis Redding got the game winner with a power play marker at 4:22 of overtime to give the Braves the 3-2 win. Hayden Boring had tied the game for Spokane with two minutes left in the game and the Braves trailing 2-1. “We came out flat,” said Flather. “Once again, it’s about controlling our controllables. That’s the common thread. We can’t be expected to come out and play for one period and expect to win. That’s not conducive to winning. Sixty minutes of effort is what’s going to win you games.” Scoring for GF were defencemen Nathan Cory and forward Lincoln Lane. Missing in action for the Bruins were high scoring forward Jackson Purvis, Kyle Dolly, and top goalie Dominik Stadnyk. “It’s been our kiss of death lately–guys play well and then they get injured,” said Flather. Kai McDonald did have a solid outing in net for the Bruins, stopping 48 of 51

Fundamentals key to success

a day of play


Grand Forks Gazette

The Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) junior girls basketball start their season on today with a road game in Castlegar at Stanley Humphries Secondary (SHSS). The team will be playing the middle game of a triple header there with the Grade 8s playing first and the senior teams playing last. The trip will be a home coming of sorts for GFSS junior coach (and Gazette reporter) Craig Lindsay, who coached at SHSS for two years. “It should be fun,” said Lindsay. “The teams should be pretty evenly matched. Both teams have some good athletes and not a lot of size. So I think it’ll come down to which team handles the ball better and passes well.” The GFSS juniors have been practicing for about three weeks now, since volleyball season ended. The team has 12 players with a good mix of grade 9s and 10s. With the last two grade 8 teams winning the West Kootenay championship in back to back years, the team is ex-

pected to be quite competitive this year. “The girls have been improving at every practice,” said Lindsay. “They’re working hard and showing good commitment so far.” Helping Lindsay coach is Dan Markortoff, who’s daughter Alyssa is on the team.

The players have been working hard on ball-handling, shooting and team defence. “It’s a long season but we need to get the fundamentals down early so can build on them,” said Lindsay, who has coached in B.C. for more than 20 years.

Renovations There will be changes at GFREC this upcoming year. We are in the process of renovating the lower arena viewing room into our expanded circuit classroom. All our circuit classes will be moving into this newly renovated, brighter bigger room. We are putting a new twist on al our morning drop in classes and evening circuit programs. The Aquatic Centre fitness room will become available for more public time for those wanting to work out on their own. To promote the newly renovated circuit room, we will be offering free classes Monday, Jan. 6 and Tuesday, Jan. 7. Participants will still have the option to use their swipe card, they will continue to access the aquatic centre after the circuit class and still have the option to attend the aqua-fit classes following. The only change will be the location of the circuit classes. If you have any questions about the upcoming change, please feel free to give us a call or ask any of the aquatic staff for clarification about the change.

Hockeyville is back to help rinks Victoria Skating Rink in downtown Montreal represents a historic site, recognized in 2002 as the birthplace of organized hockey, yet the former arena has been replaced by a parking lot for decades—until today. On Nov. 29 a hockey rink appeared on the lot as former NHL defenseman Patrice Brisebois welcomed the public for a free day of skating to celebrate the return of Kraft Hockeyville, and to illustrate the importance of funding and maintaining local rinks in Canada. A recent survey commissioned by Kraft Canada reveals the majority (91 per cent) of Canadian hockey parents agree their local rink is the social hub of their community, yet two-thirds say these arenas are in need of repairs or upgrades. Over 90 per cent (91 per cent) of those surveyed say their overall community would be negatively impacted if their rink were to close due to disrepair. “Local rinks are at the heart of Canadian communities but we may run the risk of losing many of these precious centres if they are not repaired or restored for future generations,” said Jack Hewitt, vice-president of marketing insight and services, Kraft Canada. “Kraft Hockeyville engages Canadians to preserve the spirit and passion for hockey across the nation, and that passion starts at the home rink.” This year there is an even bigger opportunity for Canada’s communities to breathe new life into their local rinks through Kraft Hockeyville 2014, in partnership with the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA). The program is back and bigger than ever, awarding a total of $1 million in prizing to 16 different communities, including: • One grand prize of $100,000 in arena upgrades and a broadcast NHL pre-season game played in the local community • One prize of $100,000 in arena upgrades • Two prizes of $50,000 each in arena upgrades for third and fourth place • Twelve prizes of $25,000 each in arena upgrades Submissions and nominations for Kraft Hockeyville 2014 open Jan. 1. Submissions will be accepted until Feb. 9. For contest rules and complete program details, visit

The waiting is the hardest part W e live in a time that is full of ten-

sions. We feel them in the world around us and sense them on many levels. The world can be full of so much joy, happiness and goodness and yet it can also be filled with evil, sorrow and strife. There is a clear tension in the world around us. This is laid out quite plainly within the Biblical narrative. God creates the world and sin enters it thrusting tensions throughout the entire text. God’s people felt these tensions clearly as they saw God do amazing things in their midst while they suffered from their sin. They spent many years waiting to see what God would do next, waiting for a king to arrive to lead them out of oppression from Roman rule, and then God did something that they

never would have expected, He sent His son. The wait was finally over as Jesus Christ entered the world, not born in a palace but in a barn with farm animals. Jesus Christ did not lead a rebellion with swords and chariots looking to overthrow a government, he led with grace, mercy and compassion. The wait was over and humanity was shocked. After Jesus left Earth he gave instructions for what we were to do and that he would one day return to Earth. Once again we are left in a time of tension and waiting. It’s important to realize that while we

find ourselves in these tensions and in these times of waiting we are actually called to do important work here on Earth. The waiting that we find ourselves in is not like waiting in some line up, it’s far more proactive than that. In the midst of waiting we are called to follow the teachings and instructions Christ left for us: Helping the poor; giving rather than taking; and looking out for the needs of others rather than ourselves. As we wait we are to cultivate true joy that is found in Christ Jesus. As we enter into the advent season and continue to await the arrival of Jesus, once more we are called to permeate with joy and celebration as we remind others of what is to come. Christmas is important for us because

A noon-hour vigil commemorating the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada was held at the Grand Forks City Hall cenotaph Friday, Dec. 6. The national day was established in 1991 by the Parliament of Canada, and marks the anniversary of the murders in 1989 of 14 young women at l’École Polytechnique de Montreal. Teresa Taylor, program manager for the Boundary Women’s Resource Centre, spoke to those assembled on the cold sidewalk.

Our staff is committed to your complete satisfaction. We pride ourselves on the quality of our service, LOWEST PRICE, and our dedication to the community. “We Invite You To Compare”

it reminds us of the waiting we are in. It reminds us that this isn’t all there is and that even though there is a lot of evil in this world we can

also find immense joy knowing that we are waiting for what is next. Ben Jepsen is associate and youth pastor at Gospel Chapel.

Murdock McKinnon Robbie 1914 - 2013

Murdock was born November 5, 1914 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Forty-eight hours into the 100th year of a rich and fulfilling life, he slipped away peacefully on November 7, 2013 in Vernon, B.C. surrounded by the love of his family and friends. Murdock had a kind manner and a warm generous heart. Family meant everything to him. Time spent with grandchildren and great-grandchildren was precious as he had a special connection with each one of them. He served his country from 1940 to 1945 in Nanaimo and Vernon where he trained officers in physical conditioning and weaponry. In 1951 Murdock returned to B.C. with his wife, Violet and young family. He worked as a machine operator, foreman and superintendent on many highway, port, dam, and powerline projects across B.C., and spent 11 memorable years at Christina Lake. He was a member of the Grand Forks Masonic Lodge, and always took pride in his contribution to the building of the Christina Lake Golf Course. He enjoyed golf, hunting, curling and baseball. He is survived by his two sons, Byron (Joanne) and Don (Sharon), 6 grandchildren and 10 greatgrandchildren. He is also fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews from the Robbie and Bates’ families. A service was held for Murdock in Vernon. Murdock will be interred in the Grand Forks cemetery at a later date.
