POLICE PROBE TEEN PHOTO EXCHANGE By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Police and Kamloops-Thompson school-district officials aren’t saying much about what they deem a “complex investigation” believed to revolve around nude photos of Kamloops high-school students circulating among local youth. What is known is that a significant number of youths are involved and potential criminal infractions could range from harassment to transmitting child pornography. It is believed the incident involves nude and
partially nude selfie-style photos sent in confidence between friends and later distributed to a wider circle of students, unbeknownst to the original senders. The police investigation began last week, after a Kamloops high-school student informed a staff member at a local school about an alleged incident. “It was inappropriate behaviour taking place on social media,” Kamloops-Thompson school district Supt. Terry Sullivan told reporters at a press conference on Wednesday, Jan. 22. “A staff member checked into it further on Friday [Jan. 17] and we felt it was appropriate to advise the RCMP immediately.” Sullivan would not say how many students are
involved in the investigation or what schools they attend, only that it involves a “significant number” of students at multiple secondary schools in the Kamloops-Thompson school district — not only in the Tournament Capital itself. “All of the students whose names we have received, all of their parents have been contacted,” Sullivan said, noting some disciplinary measures have already been taken by school officials. RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush said the police investigation covers many potential sections of the Criminal Code, including production and distribution of child pornography, harassment and uttering threats.

Terry Sullivan said some good, positive steps have been taken since he had to call in Kamloops RCMP to deal with a social-media issue involving several high-school students. Sullivan, superintendent of the KamloopsThompson School District, said the parents of each student involved have been contacted by the district, but noted many other parents are aware of the situation and have had discussions with their own children. “I know that in the last 24 hours, some parents have talked with their kids about their phones and social media and asked them what they’re doing with it — how do they use it?” he said. “And a lot of them said, ‘Your phone stays on the kitchen table at night. It’s not going into your bedroom.”’ Sullivan said the board is dealing with all students it has determined are involved in the situation, which he would not discuss in detail. XSee POOR ONLINE A6

Council mulls expansion of no-smoking zones By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Having a cigarette between periods at a Kamloops Blazers game could become a ticketable offence if the city goes ahead with a bylaw to ban smoking on city trails and in its plazas, parks and beaches. The Interior Health Authority is pitching the smoking ban as part of national non-smoking week. Jeff Conners with the Interior Smoke Free Coalition said a ban in recreation areas has health and environmental advantages for the city. Conners said similar bans have measurably cut down on tobacco use in other cities, and has reduced cigarette-butt litter, which he said can leech toxic chemicals into soil and water. Questioned by Kamloops coun-
tions with more teeth. cillors, Conners said he Coun. Tina Lange said a would like to see a stricter ban would be good PR for bylaw, targeting patios Kamloops. and other public spots, but “I think it fits with believes banning smoking what Kamloops is as the in parks would have more Tournament Capital, as a traction. city known for health and “People still see cigawellness,” she said. “It’s a rettes as not a drug,” he good step to take and will said, adding a wider ban Speak up Should the city’s anti-smoking bylaw be You can comment on any story make us look like even would likely be controveryou read @ extended to trails, plazas and parks? a better city than we are sial and more difficult to kamloopsthisweek.com Let is know at today.” pass immediately.

ties that we’re trying to run them off,” Wallace said. “I certainly would not be prepared to tell people they couldn’t go on Rivers Trail or a dog park or go outside at the hockey game and have a smoke.” Mayor Peter Milobar thinks peer pressure is already accomplishing what a ban would and doesn’t believe smoking at sports fields around the city is much of an issue. “Generally, the kids are active and the parents with them are the parents of active children,” he said. “So, those that do smoke, generally they get far away because they’re being ostracized by the other parents.” Council decided to study the possibility of a ban by a vote of 6-2, with Wallace and Milobar opposed. Coun. Nancy Bepple was absent.

City considering adding a mini-roundabout By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Kamloops’ next traffic circle could be on the smaller side. The city is pitching a plan for a miniroundabout at the intersection of 12th Avenue
and Nicola Street downtown. The city is presenting the idea to the Cycling Infrastructure Partnerships Program (CIPP) in a bid to score up to $70,000 in funding for the traffic calmer.
The mini-roundabout is, essentially, a five-metre-wide concrete circle that sits in the middle of an intersecting, forcing traffic to flow in a similar fashion to a larger roundabout. According to a
report to city council, the city is considering installing several of the roundabouts on Nicola Street. Marvin Kwiatkowski, the city’s director of development and engineering services, said the 12th
Avenue intersection was chosen as a pilot location because its traffic volumes are lower than at the intersections of Nicola Street and 10th Avenue or Nicola Street and 11th Avenue. The full cost of the
mini-roundabout is estimated at $140,000. Coun. Pat Wallace said she thinks the installation will have a positive effect on traffic in the Prince Charles Park area. “It’s kind of an awkward little area
now,” she said. “And I think at the entrance to [Riverside] park, the roundabout down here has worked so well. “I think if we can find the support for it, it would be a good thing to do.”
Council in dark about Rivers sculpture By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Coun. Nelly Dever wants Kamloopsians to know city council had nothing to do with choosing a new sculpture depicting the meeting of the Thompson Rivers. The sculpture will be installed in the roundabout near Interior Savings Centre downtown. During a council meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 21, Dever grilled recreation, social development and culture manager Barbara Berger about the sculpture by Haida artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas. The sculpture, which was the subject of a post on the Vancouver Sun’s art blog last week, will be installed in front of Riverside Park on Thursday, Feb. 6. The city had not released any information to the public about the work, entitled Rivers, since council first agreed to spend $125,000 plus installation costs
on a piece of public art as part of Lorne Street’s overall beautification. City councillors were also in the dark about the art piece, Dever said, and the Sun article was the first time she had heard of a selected sculpture. “I just find there’s irony that council has input on, for example, form and character of a house or signage where it’s not taxpayer money, it’s the developer’s money,” she said. “And we had no input on this when it’s taxpayers’ money.” Mayor Peter Milobar said council had agreed to let the arts commission select the sculpture with no input from elected officials. Nor, Milobar added, did council ask to be notified of the final decision before it went public. Instead, the decision-making process was left to a jury of five people chosen by the city’s arts commission. Berger said the jury model is the “most accepted practice” for choosing
public art, noting most communities don’t have their city councils weigh in on matters of aesthetics. “I felt any one of those five people knew more than me about identifying the kind of design considerations, the integrity of the site and the condition of the site that would go into that,” she told Dever. The sculpture is one of two installations planned for the area around Riverside Park. Last year, council agreed to let the arts commission issue a request for proposals for a new “entrance feature” for Riverside Park, with a budget of $75,000. Berger told KTW the sculpture itself cost $125,000 to commission and create, but the cost of building a plinth and installing Rivers pushed the budget to $132,000. The money comes from the city’s public art fund, which is topped up with $50,000 each year.

Pothole Notice Potholes are formed when water seeps into small cracks in the asphalt and freezes. The expansion of the ice in the crack causes the asphalt to crumble, and through repeated freeze thaw cycles a pot hole eventually forms. While Kamloops can generally boast about having a fairly mild winter climate, the constant variation of temperature above and below freezing results in the creation of potholes every winter and most predominantly in early spring. During the winter months, conventional hot mix is not available and holes must be temporarily filled using a hot recycled asphalt mix or a cold mix material. Unfortunately the repaired potholes are susceptible to the same freeze thaw cycle and at times require to be filled repeatedly until a more permanent repair can be scheduled in the spring when asphalt plants open up. During these freeze thaw cycles events up to two City crews operate 24 hours a day, Monday to Friday, patrolling and filling potholes they find. It is not uncommon, in wet road conditions, for crews to refill a hole several times in one day until road conditions dry. The City is always looking for better ways to alleviate the problem of pot holes that appear every spring. However, until a better system is found, motorists must be vigilant for the ever present pothole menace.

Ajax, provincial body say existing process adequate By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Proponents of the Ajax copper and gold mine say studies they are conducting as part of their environmental-assessment process are as good as a independent health assessment — and the province’s Environmental Assessment Office agrees. During a presentation at Thompson Rivers University last weekend, Dr. Jill Calder, a member of Kamloops Physicians for a Healthy Environment, renewed her group’s call for an independent study investigating the health impacts of the proposed open-pit mine. The group wants the Interior Health Authority to take the lead on studying the potential health risks of Ajax, rather than the province, federal government and consultants hired by the mine. Ajax spokeswoman Robin Bartlett said the extra process isn’t needed. Bartlett said the human-health and ecological risk assessment the mine is required to conduct
Mayor Peter Milobar attended the weekend presentation on health impacts of the proposed Ajax mine. While saying the lecture was informative, Milobar said it is too early in the process to determine if a separate health study is required. Allen Douglas/KTW
for its application, as well as studies on community health and wellness, socioeconomic impacts of the mine and the like will “comprehensively explore most, if not all, of the same criteria covered by a health-impact assessment.” Bartlett said research is “well underway” for the studies, which will be available to the public when the company files its application
for an environmental permit. In an emailed statement, a spokesman for the provincial Environmental Assessment Office said the mine is required to study health impacts through the humanhealth and ecological risk assessment. KGHM has said it expects to submit the application this year. The company had previously planned to file for a permit in
September 2013, but delayed it by a year to reconfigure the mine site after a new orebody discovery. “Staff from federal and provincial environment and health agencies [Environment Canada, Health Canada, BC Ministry of Environment and Interior Health Authority], as members of the joint working group, are working to ensure that the potential health impacts are properly assessed,” the spokesman said. Mayor Peter Milobar, who attended the lecture at TRU’s Alumni Theatre on Sunday, Jan. 19, deemed Calder’s presentation informative, but didn’t echo her call for the study. Milobar said until there is more information on what the studies Ajax is conducting will look like, it is difficult to judge whether more information will be needed. “It’s pretty hard to pre-guess if it’s useful enough for the lay person to use or if you’re going to have to be a bio-engineer to understand it,” he said.

He urged parents to speak with their children about appropriate behaviour. “Adolescence is a time where we test boundaries and we test authority and we’re looking for new experiences,” he said. “These poor decisions could have very significant impacts that could last a long time.”
“There’s a wide range and all that will depend on the outcome of the investigation,” she said. “We don’t want this to become a tragedy and we don’t want it to grow bigger than it already is.” Sullivan said all parents contacted have been co-operative with police and district officials.

‘Selﬁes’ a complicated legal issue By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
If an underage person takes a nude selfie, are they guilty of manufacturing child pornography? If they send that picture to someone else, are they guilty of distributing child pornography? It’s a complicated legal issue, according to an associate professor in Thompson Rivers University’s Faculty of Law. Robert Diab told KTW the selfie itself may be child pornography as defined in the Criminal Code — but it may not be. “It would depend on whether the photo depicted ‘explicit
sexual activity’ or that the ‘dominant characteristic’ of the picture was ‘the depiction, for a sexual purpose, of a sexual organ or the anal region,’” he said, quoting the child-pornography section of the Code. “Much of it would turn on the phrase, ‘sexual purpose.’ It would be for the court to decide whether this was made out.” Diab said there are also a number of acceptable defences, including a “legitimate purpose related to the administration of justice or to science, medicine, education or art” and the absence of any harm posed to the subject of the photo. He also pointed to a 2012 decision from the
ROBERT DIAB: Associate professor, TRU Faculty of Law
Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, in which two men — one 63 and the other 45 — were acquitted on child-porn charges after videotaping sex acts with a pair of 14-year-old girls. The judge in that case acquitted based on what’s become known as “the private-use defence”
— first set out in a 2001 Supreme Court of Canada decision. At the time the videos were recorded, in 2008, Canada’s legal age of consent was 14. It has since been raised to 16. The Alberta judge ruled the girls were not forced to do anything they did not want to do and the men who made the tapes did not share the material with anyone. “So, if the couple agreed that it was just for their use and possession, it may be protected,” Diab said. “But, this is an Alberta case that would not be binding in B.C. However, the reasoning may be adopted by our courts.”
Poor online decisions can haunt person for years XFrom A1
Sullivan said some of them will require counselling; others will face different repercussions. Sullivan recalled a presentation made in the city in 2008 about the concerns that can come with teens and social media. “At the end, a lot of us were
scratching our heads,” he said, noting it’s a different world from when he was a teenager. Sullivan acknowledged young people always want to push boundaries and try new things but, today, some of the decisions they make end up on the Internet and can be seen years later.
“So, when they’re applying for a job in 10 years, this can come back to them,” he said of poor social-media decisions. Sullivan said the district is constantly working with students to explain this reality. “We’re adults. It’s our job to protect adolescents from themselves.”

If you are mad at city hall, mark November on calendar
MONG THIS WEEK’S “I’m mad at city hall” callers was a man furious about his wife’s business licence. Actually, he was angry at both licences because, somehow, her application for the documentation to run her home-based business was approved twice. Two envelopes. Two certificates. One taxpayer is wondering what is going on at city hall when it can’t even process a simple document request properly. Most of the time, complaints about the city’s transit surface dominate what’s behind the flashing red light on my office telephone. Come spring, there will be people grumbling about the city’s restrictions on putting out their garbage bins, when they can do it — and do city staff really think a wandering bear won’t notice the bins at the top of the driveway waiting for 4 a.m. to pass so they can be moved to the side of the street? There have been neighbours of the sad animal lovers who have moved councillors to let them keep their three or four dogs, something city bylaws preclude. Some of the folks on my street out on the edge of town have wondered if the city’s snow-plow and sander brigade is aware there are streets that remain ice rinks right now, having seen city equipment rumble through pretty infrequently. We judge the severity of winter by how many times — if any — we come out in the morning and find the ends of
DALE BASS Street LEVEL our drives plugged with plowed snow. And, of course, there are the neverending calls about parking downtown, parking meters, parking pay stations that confuse people, parking pay stations with instructions you can’t see at dusk — you get the picture. Here at KTW, sometimes I ask our city-hall reporter, Andrea Klassen, what’s happening with the councillors, what big issue is coming up, what proposal or project they’re working on these days. She always has an answer, but none of them truly resonate, show a vision, a dream, a simple plan for the city’s future beyond making sure they hit that magic two per cent tax-increase figure at the end of budget talks. Everyone knows they’re doing it more out of desire to keep voters happy than to ensure the city grows. Even the oh-so-necessary performing-arts centre talk has pretty much dried up. But, the mayor did mention it at the recent gala that bears his name and supports the three major cultural institutions in the city — the art gallery, symphony and theatre.
For me, this is perhaps the most boring, do-little council we’ve had in a long time. It’s made up of too many people who hide behind excuses like “we’re waiting for the studies” or “we’re waiting to see what the province does” or “everything is going smoothly, so let’s leave it that way.” Leadership? Not seeing much of it in any dynamic way. The best part of this litany of disappointment in our city leaders is this is the year we can do something about it. In less than 10 months, we’ll be well into a municipal-election campaign, with most of the sitting councillors probably running again. And they’ll smile and tell you how much they care about Kamloops — and they do, there is no doubt about that — and how it’s a great city that can keep on getting greater, as long as you vote for them. So, here’s a suggestion. Start a list right now of things you want to see happen in Kamloops in coming years — or even months. Add to it when you encounter something that sets you off, wondering how your tax dollars are really being spent. Keep adding to it and then, come election time, ask yourself if you really are satisfied with what they’ve done to make Kamloops the city you want it to be. If the answer is yes, your voting decision is easy. But, if you’re like all those people who call KTW to express their views on how the city is being run, you need to think long and hard about what you’re going to do. email@example.com
B.C. NDP revival off to stuttering beginning Now we know the when. Perhaps soon we’ll learn the who. The B.C. NDP announced over the weekend it will announce its new leader to succeed Adrian Dix on Sept. 28. That leader will be chosen by party members in a vote to be conducted between Sept. 24 and Sept. 27 over the phone and online. The party’s president, Craig Keating, said he’s looking forward to an “exciting leadership election with great candidates.” Except, so far, there aren’t any candidates — great or otherwise. Three federal NDP members of Parliament from B.C. have said they’re not interested. Peter Julian, Fin Donnelly and Nathan Cullen all bowed out even before they had a chance to bow in. Kennedy Stewart, the MP for Burnaby-Douglas, is still mulling his decision, as is Jinny Sims, the federal NDP representative from Newton-North Delta. Their reticence is understandable. As members of the official opposition in Ottawa, they’re all strong voices for issues in which they and their constituents believe. They’re members of a party that captured voters’ imaginations in the last federal election and continues to get attention countering decisions and legislation made by Stephen Harper’s Conservative government. B.C. politics, on the other hand, is a snake pit. Nobody knows that better than Dix, who seemed to have victory in last spring’s provincial campaign in the bag, but found himself delivering a concession speech instead. Now that the date has been set for the party’s leadership vote, most observers expect candidates to begin announcing their intentions. And, no doubt as those names are known, and those candidates start hustling for support, the always entertaining world of B.C. politics will burn with renewed energy and entertainment.

Editor: My father is 83 and has been fighting with Canadian Veterans Affairs since September 2013. He was diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo an emergency tracheotomy to give him an airway. I applied to Veterans Affairs for help with his care and medical needs. I was told that, because he was a Korean War vet, there was a pension and support program. They sent the forms and we filled them out and sent them back. Since then, they demanded pictures of his medals. He retired in 1981 after 40 years of service in the Canadian Navy. He has moved more than 10 times and has no idea where his old uniforms and medals are located. Veterans Affairs also wants the dates he was in Korea as their files are in archives and are not on a computer. Can anyone give specific dates from 10 or 20 years back, let alone 62 years ago? They have his ID card showing my dad received the Canadian Korea Medal. To get it into the navy, you had to be active off-shore in Korea a minimum of 28 days; in Army in conflict for at least one day; or in the air force for one bombing or escort mission. They refuse to accept their own records as proof my dad served in Korea and want him to supply proof. This is just a waiting game and they have all the time in the world. He’ll be dead before they get off their butts. Jay Barlow Kamloops
Ajax pros and cons can wait for studies to be completed Editor: I was saddened in early January to learn the Kamloops Daily News was shutting its doors after many years of service to the community. I learned that my sympathy may have been misguided when I read the frontpage article in the Jan. 9 edition of the Daily News — the third-last edition of the newspaper. I am still sorry to see 50-plus people lose their jobs, but I would not be sorry to see an end to one-sided reporting such as found in the Ajax mailout ‘same old thing’ article. The reporter started with a well-written, informative report. This ended abruptly when the reporter started quoting the Kamloops Area Preservation Association spokesman. It is critical to note this spokesman stated he “hadn’t seen the documents,” but started making negative comments about
the Ajax mailouts, anyway. The rest of the article continued with the same theme. I find language such as “we wanted to get him out in the open where he has to answer some questions . . .” to be aggressive and uncalled for. The slant of the reporter’s writing continued when she quoted the Kamloops Area Preservation Association spokesman as saying “he will toss his mailout package when it comes.” In the article, there does not appear to be any attempt to report from anyone other than the Kamloops Area Preservation Association. There are folks who support the proposed Ajax project. Where was their input to this news article? My thanks to the Kamloops Area Preservation Association spokesman for one thing.
The Daily News story was not quite enough to motivate me. But, the spokesman’s Jan. 14 letter to the editor of KTW (‘Ticked off about Ajax?’) pushed me to respond. It would appear he did not do as he planned — tossing the mailout package in the garbage — but did read it and took the time to deface the KGHM questionnaire. I believe it is time for the citizens of Kamloops to speak up. I found the mailout to be informative. Until now, any information I had picked up was from the local papers. Let me suggest it is time to allow the Ajax project to progress through regulatory requirements as required. When these results are published, the citizens of Kamloops can make a more informed judgement as to the pros and cons of the proposed Ajax project. Jim Nastrom Kamloops

Picking up a meal from Wendy’s on Wednesday, Jan. 29 could help send a local kid to Disneyland. The 20th annual Wendy’s DreamLift Day will take place at restaurants in the B.C. Interior at the end of the month, raising money for The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. The foundation makes dreams come true for children ages three to 18 who are challenged by severe physical disabilities and/or life-threatening illnesses. One of the foundation’s programs, DreamLift to Disney, enables a planeload of children to fly to Disneyland for a day at the theme park. In 2013, 52 children went to Disneyland as part of the program. All sales from DreamLift Day, as well as the wages of staff, management and owners, will be donated to the foundation. Cathy Sarino, chapter volunteer with the foundation, said DreamLift Day has raised $1.22 million to date. The money raised at Wendy’s stores in the Interior will be earmarked for children from the region to go on the trip. “It’s a pretty significant contribution that they make to the communities,” Sarino said. She said it’s particularly touching to see the staff donate their wages and Wendy’s alumni come back to the stores to donate their time. Last year, Wendy’s DreamLift Day raised about $115,000. DreamLift day will take place in Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Vernon, Kelowna, West Kelowna and Penticton.

Native elder guilty of assault But, Benjamin Archie not guilty of sexual assault By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
A jury has found a Kamloops First Nations elder with a lengthy criminal history for sexual offences not guilty of sexual assault, but guilty of simple assault. Now, the Crown has said it is considering seeking a dangerousoffender designation for the 72-year-old with a long history of violent and sexual crimes. Jurors came back with the verdict after less than a day of deliberations following the two-week sexualassault trial of Benjamin Archie. He was charged with sexual assault following an incident on Sept. 4, 2012. The Crown had alleged he picked up a 32-year-old female acquaintance on Tranquille Road and offered her a ride to Kelowna, which she accepted. The jury was told Archie violently raped
and beat the woman on the forest floor off a dirt logging road outside Merritt. She later jumped out of his moving vehicle on the Okanagan Connector and was helped by passersby. Court heard a doctor could find no physical evidence of a sexual assault. Crown prosecutor Sarah Firestone said Archie was unable to become erect during the attack. The jury deliberated without the knowledge of Archie’s lengthy criminal history — including an incident similar in circumstance to the 2012 allegations. The last time Archie was sentenced to jail time was following an incident in 2006, when he drove his wife to a remote area outside Kamloops and beat her until she agreed to have sex with him — an offence for which he was handed a four-year federal prison term. In 1999, he was sentenced to 18 months
in jail after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl at three B.C. powwows. Archie has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 1966 for non-sexual offences, as well, including the manslaughter of a 22-yearold Canim Lake woman. Firestone said the Crown may seek a dangerous-offender label — a designation that could see him locked up indefinitely — for Archie, but won’t decide until after a presentence report has been completed. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley allowed Archie to remain free on bail pending the pre-sentence report. His return date for sentencing had not been set as of KTW press time. Court was told Archie is a residentialschool survivor and that there will be a Gladue component to his sentencing.
The Gladue component states that, if someone has been charged with a crime and they are aboriginal, there are special cultural considerations the court must take into account in assessing the case. This applies to all aboriginal Canadians, including status and non-status Indian, Inuit, and Métis, on- and offreserve. Under Gladue, a court determines whether a restorativejustice process may be more appropriate for the offender. Such processes focus on healing those affected by the criminal act, including the offender, and are more in line with traditional aboriginal justice. The restorativejustice approach is also used to help address the over-representation of aboriginals in Canadian jails. The Gladue component is addressed under Section 718.2(e) of the Criminal Code.

Venturing to Europe for workers By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER
Venture Kamloops staff have returned from Europe with a stack of resumes from workers in France and Belgium interested in emigrating here. Executive director Jim Anderson said the economicdevelopment firm shortlisted and categorized 300 resumes under the program sponsored by the federal government. It is aimed at bringing Frenchspeaking workers to Canada to fill shortages. Some of the positions here that have gone unfilled for long periods of time include a goldsmith and project manager, as well as in hightech and the trades. “Some of the employers are on the smaller side,” Anderson said. “Colin [manager of business retention and expansion Colin O’Leary] walked into their offices with a one-inch stack of resumes.” It is the second time Venture Kamloops staff have gone to European countries in an effort to find skilled workers.

Anderson said federal immigration rules allow fasttracking of prospective Francophone workers, meaning new hires can move to Kamloops in as little as a few months.

Can living next to a mine affect mental health?
N SUNDAY, JAN. 19, DR. JILL CALDER DELIVERED A PRESENTATION TO MORE THAN 250 PEOPLE ON THE POTENTIAL FOR HEALTH RISKS RELATED TO THE PROPOSED AJAX MINE. One of the people in attendance at the presentation is an avid reader of this column and she wrote to us saying, “You frequently comment on the link between our physical well-being and our emotional/ mental well-being. “If that is truly the case, are there potential health hazards to our mental health from the proposed Ajax mine?” It should come as no surprise the answer is yes, there is a potential for harm to mental health from a variety of sources related to mining close to the city. We need to stress, however, “potential” is not the same as “actual” harm. In the words of Yves Lacasse, external affairs manager for mine proponent KGHM, it is not possible to judge any of that until all the data is known and analyzed. So, keeping that in mind, here is some information to be aware of as data does become known and available: According to the American Psychological Association (APA), air pollution has many well-documented impacts on mental health. Recently, it wrote,
“Evidence is mounting that dirty air is bad for your brain” and described several conditions directly linked to airborne particles similar to what Calder spoke about at the gathering at Thompson Rivers University. The APA has reported that “over the past decade, researchers have found that high levels of air pollution may damage children’s cognitive abilities, increase adults’ risk of cognitive decline and possibly even contribute to depression.” So, what does that mean? It means studies have linked increased air pollution with a number of mental and cognitive-health issues and they cited, for example: • “Older women who had been exposed to high levels of [particulate matter] experienced greater cognitive decline compared with other women their age.” • “Kids exposed to greater levels of black carbon [soot] scored worse on tests of memory and verbal and non-verbal.” • “Children who had been exposed to higher levels of urban air pollutants known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons while in utero were more likely to experience attention problems and symptoms of anxiety and depression.” • “Pollutantexposed mice showed

signs of . . . depression.” There have been two recent studies in the American Journal of Psychiatry that report days of bad air pollution increase the risk of suicide. They also indicated pollution worsened asthma, which also increased the risk of suicide. Essentially, the researchers confirmed respiratory problems worsen a person’s mental state — which comes as no surprise to regular readers of this column. We know mental health and the body
are interconnected closely. Other research conducted on mice found exposure to air pollution can lead to changes in the brain’s physiology which, in turn, can cause depression, learning problems and memory issues. Again, it is important to stress even though there is a link
between some forms of mental illness and air pollution, there is no data available to estimate the likely amount and type of air pollution from the proposed mine. Other potential mental-health impacts involve noise, vibrations and quality of life issues, but these are much more difficult to assess and measure from a mentalhealth point of view. Proponents of the mine would be sure to point out mental health is improved with the higher standard of liv-

TRU strategic plan: ‘We need projects that address these ﬁve priorities,’ Shaver says By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
If Alan Shaver has one goal in the next five years, it's to have a group of staff come to him with an idea that makes him wish he had thought of it. The president of Thompson Rivers University said he could name several projects that he thinks would fit into a strategic plan now being developed, "but, if I did, you'd all think that's what I want to see," he told participants at a recent town-hall meeting on campus. "So, this is not about saying what projects we will do but we need projects that address these five priorities," he said. Through recent months, TRU has worked its way through a variety of internal and external meetings, working toward a plan to guide it through to the end of this decade. The town hall was held to brainstorm the five chosen from what Shaver told the group "could easily have been 40 or 50 priorities" identified in preceding sessions. These include building student success, intercultural understanding, research capacity, entrepreneurial capacity and sustainability. Each has further issues included; sustainability, for example, includes financial, cultural, social, creative, environmental and economic focuses. The plan is available online at tru.ca/ president/strategicpriorities.html. A second town hall was held on Thursday, Jan. 16, at NorKam secondary for and online comments will be accepted until Sunday, Jan. 26. The hope is to see the draft go to the university senate by the end of the month, said TRU provost Kate Sutherland, and, from there, to the board of governors.

Tee it up in snow to help Paul Lake ﬁght ﬁres By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The Paul Lake Fire Protection Association is looking to fight fire with ice in its Snow Golf tournament in February. The tournament is scheduled to take place on the frozen surface of Paul Lake on Sunday, Feb. 9. It will consist of nine holes of best-ball golf on the man-made snow course, with a shotgun start. The Paul Lake Fire Protection Association is raising funds to help it refurbish a fire truck donated by the McLure Fire Department. It’s also planning to build a fire hall for the volunteer firefighters and their equipment. Association president Ed Lund said
the Paul Lake area has only a fire trailer with four pumps on it for battling fires right
now, noting it is not enough. “We’ve had a couple of fires and we’ve
also had a loss of life in one of the fires,” Lund said. “We would really
like to get the word out that it’s really important that we get this fire hall built.”
Play on Feb. 9 will begin at 11 a.m. and registration will be $25 per person.
Participants can register by sending an email to milkguy. email@example.com.

CORRECTION There have been no lost-time incidents at New Afton mine since November 2012. An incorrect date appeared in a story on page A6 of the Jan. 21 edition Kamloops This Week about safety improvements at the mine. The story also quoted Kurt Keskimaki, who is the general manager. The article stated the mine did not have a dust-monitoring program at the time of the initial audit in 2012. In fact, while dust was monitored by the mine, inspectors with the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas found it was not adequately analyzed and some workers were exposed above safe working limits. • Due to erroneous information received at a press conference, a Jan. 21 KTW article on new compressed natural-gas buses coming to Kamloops in 2015 misidentified for what an $875,000 grant from Fortis BC will be used. The grant will cover a portion of the purchasing cost for the buses, not a portion of the costs of building a natural-gas fuelling station.

Understanding your RRSP options
OU’VE LIKELY HEARD IT — YOU SHOULD REGULARLY CONTRIBUTE TO A REGISTERED RETIREMENT-SAVINGS PLAN (RRSP) TO PREPARE FOR RETIREMENT. Perhaps you do. However, out of almost 93 per cent of Canadian tax filers who were eligible to contribute to an RRSP for the 2010 tax year, only 26 per cent made contributions. It’s important to contribute to an RRSP and there are many options available. An RRSP is a retirement plan registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) into which you or your spouse contributes. These contributions, up to your personal limit, are deductible from your income. As well, any growth in an RRSP is exempt from tax while your money remains inside the plan. These are incentives the CRA uses to help ensure Canadians take an active role in preparing for their retirement. What happens if you need to access an RRSP before retirement? An RRSP can be completely cashed out before retirement and the proceeds paid to you. You may also take partial withdrawals without terminating the plan. However, either of these scenarios will result in the withdrawals being taxed at your marginal tax rate in that same calendar year. When you withdraw money, you’ll have that much less saved for retirement. It’s best not to touch your RRSP until you retire. RRSPs are available from financial institutions, including banks, trust companies, mutual-fund companies, lifeinsurance companies and stock brokerages. Options are available, such as GICs, stocks, bonds, annuities, mutual funds and segre-
gated-fund contracts. Specifically, mutual funds and segregatedfund contracts can provide important advantages when accumulating wealth for retirement, especially when held in RRSPs. Let’s look at the options of holding mutual funds and segregated fund contracts as part of an RRSP in more detail. When you invest in mutual funds, your money is pooled together with other investors’ money. You own units, which represent your portion of the holdings in the fund. Mutual funds invest in a broad range of securities and are typically managed by a team of investment professionals. Mutual funds range from being conservative to aggressive, offering levels of growth potential and associated risk, so it’s important to understand the characteristics of the mutual funds in which you invest. Your investment in a mutual fund can grow: • When the fund earns income, such as dividends on stocks and interest on bonds. • When the fund’s securities experience market growth. When you’re diversified by investing in a large number of assets, as is the case when you invest in mutual funds, a loss in any particular investment can potentially be minimized by gains in others. Investors purchase mutual funds because they do not have the time or the expertise to manage their own portfolios. Portfolio fund managers make all of the decisions and do the monitoring for you. Most companies offer pre-authorized chequing plans so money can be invested automatically on a monthly basis. Managers buy and sell large volumes of securities at a time; therefore, you have the opportunity to access a fully diversified port-
folio at a significantly lower cost, versus constructing your own portfolio, security by security. A segregated fund is a pool of assets held by a life insurance company, but the pool or fund is “segregated,” or kept separate from the general assets of the insurer. You invest in a segregated fund through the purchase of a segregated-fund contract. It offers investment management and growth potential, just as mutual funds do, but there are also protective guarantees provided by the insurer. There are many types of segregated fund contracts that vary in complexity and features, but all offer death benefit and maturity guarantees. You don’t necessarily have to cash out an RRSP immediately upon retirement. Rather, the CRA has mandated RRSPs must mature before the end of the year in which you turn age 71. At this time, you can take a lump-sum payment, on which you would have to pay tax at your marginal rate. However, a better alternative is to convert the RRSP to a registered retirement income fund (RRIF) or a registered annuity, either of which provides you with a series of payments over time and is therefore more taxefficient. RRSPs and RRIFs can provide creditor protection, except to contributions made in the last 12 months. This means that, in the event of bankruptcy, these assets are protected, ensuring retirement savings remain intact. If there is a named beneficiary other than the estate, RRSP and RRIF assets are not subject to many of the delays, fees and other costs often associated with estate settlement. Instead, the assets can pass privately and directly to the named beneficiaries. Many other options are also available.
Speak to your advisor about the RRSP choices that could work best for you and your unique situation. A spousal RRSP is a plan opened in your spouse’s name to which you make contributions. The advantage of a spousal RRSP is it can provide you with opportunities to split income with your spouse before and after retirement to generate tax savings. Tax savings can be realized when the spouse who is in a lower tax bracket takes income from the spousal plan. The net effect is, collectively, you and your spouse could pay less tax than you would have if only the spouse in the higher-tax bracket had taken income.

Fortis customers get eye-popping surprise CANADIAN PRESS
KELOWNA â€” FortisBC is trying to lower the wattage after hundreds of customers lit up when they opened their electricity bills this month. The utility is getting back on track after a six-month labour dispute that began
last June and ended in December. Fortis had to estimate power consumption during the dispute because meter readers respected picket lines set up by locked out members of Local 213 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Meter readers have now visited homes to
confirm power consumption over the sixmonth period â€” and some customers have January bills of $1,700 or more. â€œSome customers receive bills that may be higher, some lower, because actual consumption is being reconciled,â€™â€™ Fortis BC spokesman David Wylie said.
â€œWe encourage our customers to call us if they felt their bill did not reflect their actual use.â€™â€™ Customers pay about nine cents per kilowatthour up to 1,600 kw-h every two months. Once they exceed that benchmark, they pay more than 13 cents per kw-h to discourage over-consumption.
Because Fortis estimated their usage over six months, customers may be charged more hours at the higher rate this month, but Wylie said customersâ€™ March bills will be credited once the hours are adjusted to maximize the lower rate. â€œWeâ€™re making sure our customers fully use the tier-one rate
throughout that six months before we bill any tier two,â€? he said. â€œThat could result in a credit for the customer.â€? Complicating matters is the fact Fortis, which provides electricity and natural-gas services to communities in the Thompson-Okanagan, Similkameen,
Boundary and part of the Kootenays, recently raised its rates and just took over billing thousands of customers in Kelowna, who are seeing their first Fortis bill. The utility said anyone on a limited income who has been hit by a hefty bill can ask to arrange a longerterm payment plan.
Reporter arrested on allegations she threatened to kill WHL player CANADIAN PRESS
KENNEWICK, Wash. â€” A freelance reporter from B.C. has been arrested in the U.S. over allegations she threatened to kill her boyfriend, who plays for the Western Hockey Leagueâ€™s TriCity Americans. Court documents indicate 25-year-old Kelowna resident Tieja MacLaughlin, who police said had been dating Jackson Playfair, was arrested in Kennewick, Wash. None of the allegations contained in court documents or outlined publicly by Kennewick police have been tested in court and MacLaughlin has not been charged. She is being held without bail, according to the documents. According to a court document outlining the reason for MacLaughlinâ€™s detention, Playfair called police early Saturday morning (Jan. 18). He told police he had been in a relationship with MacLaughlin since
"//6"- (&/&3"- .&&5*/(
888,$#*"$0. 7JDUPSJB4USFFU ,BNMPPQT 1IPOF
last July, but the relationship had been â€œrocky,â€™â€™ the document said. â€œTieja found out the victim cheated on her and she told him over the phone that she was on her way to Kennewick,â€™â€™ the arresting officer wrote on the document. ` â€œDuring that phone call, Tieja advised the victim that he would be dead by the end of the night.â€™â€™ The document said MacLaughlin denied making the threats after her arrest on Saturday. The victim in the document is identified only as a player for the Tri-City Americans, but Kennewick police spokesman Mike Blatman confirmed Playfairâ€™s identity. Playfair is originally from Fort St. James, according to biographical information on the teamâ€™s website. He is the son of Phoenix Coyotes associate coach Jim Playfair, and his brother, Austyn Playfair, was signed to the Americans last year.
A spokesperson for the Tri-City Americans said neither Playfair nor the team would be commenting. MacLaughlin is a freelance reporter for Castanet, an online news website based in Kelowna, and has also written for the Kelowna Daily Courier. Two addresses are listed for her in court documents, one in Kelowna and one in Paris, Ont. Blatman said MacLaughlin ended up staying in a hotel room for the night, but continued to contact Playfair, prompting him to call police. He said officers contacted MacLaughlin and she agreed to leave Playfair alone. â€œShe agreed to do that, said she wouldnâ€™t make any contact with him or anything else,â€™â€™ Blatman said. â€œBetween that time and the next morning, there were a substantial number of text messages she continued to send Playfair.â€™â€™

Woman, 79, gets conditional discharge Toronto resident failed to fill out 2011 census form TORONTO â€” A 79-year-old Toronto woman has been handed a conditional discharge after being found guilty of violating the Statistics Act for refusing to fill out the mandatory census in 2011. The sentence means Janet Churnin will have no permanent criminal record after she completes 50 hours of community service, but she is on probation until then. The judge presiding
in the case disagreed with Churninâ€™s arguments that her Charter rights were violated and found the selfdescribed pacifist had no lawful excuse for not participating in the census. Churninâ€™s lawyer had argued at her trial that the government didnâ€™t do enough to address her concerns about U.S. arms-maker Lockheed Martinâ€™s role in the data-collection process. The Crown coun-
tered that Canadians canâ€™t refuse to comply with legitimate government obligations simply on the basis of moral disapproval or speculative security fears. Churnin has said she thought there was a chance information on Canadaâ€™s population could be accessed by Lockheed Martin, or
by the American government if the corporation was forced to turn over the information under the U.S. Patriot Act. The head of census operations at Statistics Canada testified that Lockheed Martin had no access to the agencyâ€™s data operation centre or its censusresponse database.

Patricia Vicars Love May 12, 1939 - January 16, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our amazing Mom, Grandma, Sister and Friend, Patricia (Pat) Vicars Love. She was taken from us too quickly after a very short bout with cancer. Mom’s illness was fought with courage and grace with her daughter Linda by her side for the entire journey. Pat was born and raised in Kamloops, graduating from Kamloops High School in 1957. After living and working elsewhere in BC for nearly 15 years, Pat returned back to Kamloops in 1972, making it home for both her and Linda. She spent all of those years making Shuswap Manor, ‘a nice place to live,’ dedicating her heart and soul into the apartment block. Pat gave her time and energy to everyone around her, never putting herself ﬁrst. Pat’s smile lit up a room, even up to her very last days. Her creativity was evident in her everyday life and her amazing artwork will now be cherished by those who loved her. Pat is deeply loved and missed by her sons, Randy Wiggins (Sherry, Laura, Jackie), Brent Wiggins (Sandy, Kurtis), her daughter, Linda Picton-Bryce (Mike, Jordy, Jake, Brooklyn), brother John Vicars and sister Maryhelen Vicars (Peter), along with two great grandchildren, four step-children and their families, four nieces, many cousins, and more loving friends and family. She was pre-deceased by her husband George Love and her parents Hugh and Marjorie Vicars. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, January 25 at 2pm in the Summit Drive Church with Pastor Harry Bicknell ofﬁciating. We will be forever grateful to the Angels at Kamloops Hospice who loved and cared not only for Pat but also for Linda. The Hospice Angels gave Mom extra time where she could live pain and stress free while being pampered like a princess. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. D. Hamilton for being more than anyone could ever ask for and to Dr. R. Farren who was also ﬁlled with love and kindness. Should friends desire, we know Pat would appreciate memorial donations to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Crescent S, Kamloops, BC V2E 2S9.

Lionel Frederic “Fred” Adams October 24, 1923 January 16, 2014
Fred passed away peacefully at Ridgeview Lodge after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s. He was a loving and dearly loved family man and he will be sadly missed by his wife of 65 years Helen, his children Bob (Shirley) Adams of Guatemala and Barbara (Alan) McKnight of Kamloops, his grandchildren Phil McKnight (Brenda Dunn) of Ottawa, Andrea (John) Andrachuk of Victoria, Elizabeth (Juan Carlos) Jimenez of Guatemala and Valerie McKnight of Victoria. He also leaves behind 3 precious little great grandsons. Fred was born in Brooksby SK. and raised in Prince Albert SK. He served in the Canadian Navy during WWII. He attended the University of SK. where he received his BA & BEd. His teaching career took place in Mission and Kamloops where he was primarily a school counsellor. Fred lived in a very active life. He loved the outdoors and was an avid fisherman. He also participated in many different sports. He was always giving of himself and was an active member of the Rotary Club. When Fred & Helen retired out at the Shustwap they travelled extensively and could be found golfing, curling or happily twirling around the square dance floor. The family would like to thank the staff at Ridgeview Lodge who gave Fred the very best of care during his final years. At Fred’s request there will be no funeral service but a family gathering will be held in the future with the kind of fun, laughter and memories that he would have enjoyed. Donations to the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated.
One night a man had a dream, He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two set of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to followed you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.” The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.” Margaret Fishback Powers

Meet Petey Matt Revel’s brother is also his biggest fan By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
ETEY REVEL DAMN NEAR ran the reporters down. Mics, cameras and media members surrounded his older sibling, Matt, a 17-year-old forward with the Kamloops Blazers. The questions and quotes could wait — a brotherly bear hug is more important. “He’s 12 and he’s got Rubinstein– Taybi syndrome and autism, so he’s a little bit of a challenged kid but, you know what, he’s the happiest kid I’ve ever met,” said Matt, who was acquired by Kamloops in a trade with the Saskatoon Blades on Jan. 8. “He’s the best thing that ever happened to my family and he makes people smile every day.” Petey’s smile might have faded for a time, with Matt in Saskatoon and the eldest Revel brother, Adam, 19, playing with the Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs in Lethbridge. The eastern road trips were a tall task for the Abbotsford-based Revels, with father, Gord, a principal, and mother, Jen, a teacher, not always able to satisfy Petey’s superfan-sized appetite to watch his brothers play. “It was really tough for him and for us to see it,” Gord said. “With Petey being a special-needs kid, our two older boys really have a special relationship with him. “This is precious, to be in Kamloops with this organization. It’s awesome.” Gord will soon master the Coquihalla and the diminutive Petey will likely log some kilometres of his own, on foot, racing along the glass at Interior Savings Centre, peering in on his favourite player. “He’s always trying

Yamada ready to take on big guns By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
There won’t be any surprises for Brent Yamada at the upcoming Canadian Direct Insurance BC men’s Provincial Championship. He knows who his Kamloops Curling Club rink will be up against at the tournament, which runs from Feb. 4 to Feb. 9 at Vancouver Curling Club. “Once the game starts, there’s no hero worship,” Yamada said. “We played Morris early this season. “We weren’t successful in beating him, but we gave him a pretty good game.” Yamada was speaking of John Morris and his Kelowna-Vernon rink, which includes Kamloops native Jim Cotter. There is more pressure this season than in years past, but not just because the Brier will be in Kamloops.
“I’m getting older, that’s where the pressure is,” he said. The Kamloops rink includes third Corey Sauer, second Tyler Klymchuk and lead Lance Yamada. The addition of 21-year-old Klymchuk has brought a youthful energy to the team. It’s also brought a heavy-hitting dimension to the rink and allowed it to play more aggressively. The Kamloops quartet will need to be at its best if a spot at the 2014 Tim Horton’s Brier, which runs from March 1 to March 9 at Interior Savings Centre, is in the cards. Yamada clinched a berth at provincials after posting a 4-2 record at a qualifying tournament in Salmon Arm on Jan. 11 and Jan. 12. The team, Yamada added, is hitting its stride. “We played the best that we have all year,” he told KTW of his team’s showing at the

Salmon Arm bonspiel. “We had really good execution, start to finish.” Yamada has been to the B.C. championship five times. His best finish came in 1996 — the last time the Brier was held in Kamloops. That year, Barry McPhee, another Kamloops-based team, beat Yamada in the
provincial final. McPhee went 4-7 at the Brier and missed the playoffs. Yamada is hoping this year it can be his turn to play in the national men’s championship on home turf. “It would be a huge boost for the fan-base,” the 48-year-old Yamada said. Yamada won’t be the only Kamloops team at the B.C. championship.

‘You just never know’ where Blind Date is going By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
HEN REBECCA Northan told her longtime friend, Christy Bruce, about her idea for a play, Bruce wasn’t at all surprised. “I thought she’s either the craziest woman or the the bravest woman,” Bruce said of actor Northan’s idea that eventually became Blind Date, a unique piece of theatre in which every show is completely different. The idea is simple, said Bruce: She plays Mimi, a woman from Paris who is about to go out on a blind date. The stage will be set with a table, two chairs and a bottle of wine. As for her date? It’s a blind date, so, of course, she doesn’t know until she chooses a man from the audience. From there, it’s all improvised — something Bruce said she has a lot of experience with, having been working with Second City since 2000. Northan and Bruce are bringing the play to Kamloops, opening for previews tonight and having its official opening on Saturday, Jan. 25, at Sagebrush Theatre. Bruce said the beauty of the show is that it works with anyone who heads
Improv show set to debut at Sagebrush on Saturday, Jan. 25 up the stairs and joins her on stage, from the shy and nervous type to the confident man-about-town. In fact, she said, the bashful guy simply reflects the reality of most blind dates, situations where people are often nervous, unsure of what to hope for or what to expect. And, in many cases, Bruce said, the man she chooses “hasn’t been on a blind date in 30 years.” There are some basic parameters within the play that help her keep it on track — but, sometimes things can be way beyond what has been contemplated. One night when Northan was performing it, Bruce said, the man she chose was quite rigid in his views on dating. As she worked her improv magic through the show, it was time to go back to Mimi’s apartment. Her would-be suitor drew the line there. He didn’t believe in that kind of a relationship unless a couple was married.
Quick thinking, some additional props, an announcement the next scene is two years in the future — and the couple was wed. Bruce said there are plenty of costumes and two tables filled with a variety of props chosen to try and anticipate most paths Blind Date will go down. The framework is established to ensure the date and anyone who may have come to the theatre with him aren’t embarrassed by the play — and that the audience is entertained. “You just never know, you end up in different places,” she said. In past productions, it wasn’t unusual to have people attend several — and sometimes all — of the performances in a run, just because every night is always different, she said. Blind Date opens has its official opening on Saturday, Jan. 25, and continues to Saturday, Feb. 1. Tickets are available at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca.

NPN 80042283 Helps to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Truthful actual experiences from real people:
For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage #1 spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONFor 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC I suffered for years with sciatica. I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised #1 I could help many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. Nick A. Jerch, President of Bell Lifestyle Products. Many people on our website write: “Can walk again for hours”;”Can climb stairs without hanging on to railing”;”First time in 15 years can sleep at night” Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister…hundreds of testimonials all with full names and towns. Shark bones/cartilage was a previously thrown away by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught for their cartilage. Don’t let any activist confuse you.

Watch live ballet at Cineplex Aberdeen Think classical ballet is so 1841? This month, London’s Royal Opera House sets out to prove just the opposite, using modern satellite technology to breathe fresh new life into of one of ballet’s most enduring love stories. At 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 27, Giselle will be brought to life in a new way when it is broadcast from the famous Covent Garden stage of the Royal Opera House to cinemas across the globe, including select Cineplex theatres in Canada. Ghostly waifs, love that transcends death and heartbreaking betrayal, Giselle weaves together a seductive mix of human passions, supernatural forces and the redemptive power of self-sacrificing love. London’s Royal Ballet, preeminent masters of classical ballet, will mount this stunning production as part of its 2014 dance season and broadcast live to cinemas from the Royal Opera House. International dance superstars Carlos Acosta and Natalia Osipova will perform the enigmatic lead roles, following rave reviews for their recent sold-out performances in The
Royal Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet. The first act of Giselle is filled with historical detail and rustic colour. By contrast, the second act, one of ballet’s most beautiful white acts, plunges the audience into an eerie moonlit forest haunted by the ethereal Wilis — vengeful spirits of young brides who died before their wedding day. With its combination of memorable story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way for cinema audiences to discover classical ballet and, at $23 per ticket, it’s ballet on a budget. What’s a live ballet cinema broadcast like? The Royal Opera House, in collaboration with Arts Alliance Media, has worked relentlessly to perfect the camera and satellite technology required in order to recreate the feeling of being front-row-centre for the world’s most famous ballets. All of the tension and anticipation of a live performance is preserved — audiences are even treated to a behind-the-scenes preview before the performance begins.

Exploring the biblical foundation of charity The season of giving, mainly from October to December each year, is a great time to help the needy and the homeless. A quick analysis shows charities like the United Way, some large industrial and business houses and institutions with deeper pockets have contributed admirably to the food banks, the shelters and affiliated and unaffiliated missions in their endeavour to care for the needy, the homeless, single mothers and children in our communities. In particular, the holiday seasons call us to rethink philanthropy in a new light and to dispose of
NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH a little more of our personal wealth. A verse in the gospels, “Jesus went about doing good,” explains in a few words the ministry of the son of God and the purpose of existence of many Christian charities. He did good and told others to do so. The gospels constantly tell us Jesus touched lepers with his fingers, anointed the eyes of the blind
even when he was only asked to speak the word from a distance. He did not usually comply, but went to the sick ones’ beds and touched them. This lesson is worth emulating by his followers. If we do any good, let us do it ourselves. Give alms with our own hands, a kind look, a smile or word. It would enhance the value of the gift. Let us take time to talk to the recipients about their lives. To sit where they sit, to give alms with our own hands, a kind look, a smile or word — it would enhance the value of the gift.
In his lifetime, there was scarcely a village which was not gladdened by the sight of Jesus as he “went around going good.” He was never put off by dangers of difficulties. He sought for people to do good to — and so must we. Christ’s perseverance and the unity of his purpose are also hinted at and the practical application of the subject may be summed up by the words: “He has left us an example that we should follow in his steps.” In the Bible, the concept of goodness is inseparably linked with personal faith in God.
The redemptive love of God is one aspect of the quality that the Scripture calls “God’s goodness.” Psalm 100:4,5 bids its readers to “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise, to give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever.” That ought to lead sinners to repentance. The Apostle Paul wrote: “Do you show contempt for the riches of His kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness leads you toward repentance?” (Romans 2:4). Other aspects of
His goodness are the mercy, compassion or pity that shows kindness toward persons who have persisted in sinning (Exodus 3:4-6). The supreme expression of God’s goodness is, however, still the amazing grace and inexpressible love that shows kindness by saving sinners who only deserve condemnation. Yet, God made provision to save them at the tremendous cost of Christ’s death on Calvary (Romans 3:22,24; 5:5-8). God’s faithfulness to His purposes, promises and people is a further aspect of His goodness and praiseworthiness.
Humans lie and break their word. God does neither. In the worst of times, it can still be said: “His compassions never fail . . . great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22,23)). In Christ, the believers are created for good works (Eph. 2:10) and receive a good conscience (Acts 23:1). This is also the reason for urgent exhortation to bear fruit in good works, to seek to do good, and to do it to everyone. The goodness of the Lord impels us to do good works. We have been called to serve. narayanmitra@ hotmail.com
How will we adapt to change? By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Eli Pivnick thinks it’s only a matter of time until life in Kamloops — and across the world — changes for good. The question is: How to adapt ahead of time? “The way Western society, and now Eastern society, lives based on an abundant supply of fossil fuels and cheap energy is going to change radically,” Pivnick said. “The sooner we can start making the change, the easier it’s going to be.” That’s the thinking behind a new project from Kamloops 350, a community-environmental organization focused on climatechange issues. On Saturday, Jan. 25, the group will host a meeting it hopes will kick off a transitiontown effort in the Tournament Capital. The transition-town
movement, which has already taken root in communities such as Victoria and Maple Ridge, is about making communities more self-reliant in advance of social changes stemming from climate change and dwindling fossil fuels, Pivnick said. “It’s looking at changing the way we live to reduce our fossilfuel use and to live lives that make sense — that are more sustainable,” he said. “For me, it’s a perfect fit for the group.” What actions that will lead to in Kamloops are yet to be seen. “It’s going to depend on who’s involved and what their interests are,” Pivnick said. “It could set off a whole bunch of things.” Among the possibilities are projects that promote local food, libraries of tools and appliances people can share to reduce consumption, or lobbying
the city for improvements to transit programs and more energyefficient policies. “If there’s a number of people in one area, we may want to look at how we’re going to make a neighbourhood more cohesive, so people are involved with each other more,” Pivnick said. “Because that’s really part of the issue. “A lot of our problems, our societal problems, stem from the fact that we are increasingly isolated.” Pivnick said it will likely take two or three meetings for the group to decide what goals it wants to pursue, of which this weekend’s session is the first. Along with a group discussion, attendees will screen In Transition 2.0, an hour-long film on the transition movement. The meeting begins at 11 a.m. at the Kamloops Art Gallery, 465 Victoria St.

Harper cancels visit to Dome of the Rock CANADIAN PRESS
JERUSALEM — Citing security, Prime Minister Stephen Harper cancelled a planned visit on Tuesday, Jan. 21, to the Dome of the Rock, a revered Islamic shrine that sits on a political tinderbox. The Dome and the hallowed Al-Aqsa mosque lie on a plaza known to Judaism as Temple Mount, and called the Noble Sanctuary by Muslims. The glittering Dome dominates the skyline of old Jerusalem and overlooks the Western Wall, a remnant of the Jewish Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans in AD 70. The Wall is one of the holiest sites in Judaism. Temple Mount has been a repeated flashpoint for decades. In September 2000, Ariel Sharon visited the
Citing security concerns, Prime Minister Stephen Harper cancelled a planned visit to the Dome of the Rock. Harper and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamim Netanyahu agreed this week to expand a free-trade pact.
site accompanied by a powerful security force. He claimed he was on a mission of peace, but his foray sparked a deadly riot and touched off the second intifada, or Palestinian uprising, in which thousands died. “Planning and logistics required on a trip like this can be complicated and, unfortunately, we weren’t able to make
it work in a manner that satisfied the security organizations involved,’’ Harper spokesman Jason MacDonald said of the decision to cancel the visit. “Specifically, Shin Bet [Israeli security] would not guarantee that they would not enter the mosque.’’ As many as twodozen Palestinians were
killed in 1990 in riots that broke out near the mosque. The plaza has been the site of repeated violent demonstrations, clashes, stonings and shootings, despite being steeped in religious symbolism for Jews, Christian and Muslims alike. In Jewish belief, the two ancient temples —
one built by Solomon, one by King Herod — sat over the rock where the patriarch Abraham went to sacrifice his son Isaac before an angel stopped him. For Muslims, the rock marks the spot from which Muhammad ascended to heaven. For Christians, the Second Temple played a key role in the
life of Jesus. The Dome and the mosque date from the seventh century. The mosque was seriously damaged several times by ancient earthquakes, although the sturdier Dome stood up to the tremors. During the Crusades, they were used as a church and a palace before returning to Muslim control. For the next 700 years, non-Muslims were banned from the area until the Israelis conquered East Jerusalem during the Six-Day War in 1967. Since then, access has varied. Although the area is
occupied by Israel, the Temple Mount is actually administered by a religious trust based in Jordan. There were times when non-Muslims were barred as the political situation grew overheated. Today, non-Muslims can tour parts of the site under strict security. The Dome and the mosque are a focal point for extremists of many stripes. Some radical Jewish groups say the structures should be razed and a new temple erected. It’s a view shared by some Christian fundamentalists who believe rebuilding the temple will hasten the Second Coming. Some Muslims see these as serious threats to a site which is regarded as the third holiest in Islam, outside of Mecca and Medina.

Lawyer: Not all cellphones alike A defence lawyer for Rajan Singh Mann, who was convicted in 2012 for an armed kidnapping, has told the court police should have obtained a warrant before looking through the contents of two BlackBerry cellphones. However, Crown lawyer Gail Banning said recent court judgments that have concluded smartphones deserve the same protections as personal computers have dealt with advanced, modern-day devices capable of storing mas-

sive amounts of data. In contrast, Banning said, the cellphones in the current case were older, 2004- and 2005model BlackBerrys with limited storage capacity, no camera and only rudimentary Internet connectivity. Banning said older cellphones like those should be treated like briefcases, which police would be able to search if they were seized from a suspect during an arrest.

TORONTO — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admits he was drinking on Monday night (Jan. 20) after a video surfaced online of him rambling and swearing. Ford has repeatedly said he has not had a drink since November. After the video was posted to YouTube on Tuesday, Jan. 21, Ford told reporters he had indeed been drinking the previous night and that what he does in his personal life with his friends is up to him. He said he doesn’t think his use of Jamaican patois and profanity was dis-
criminatory, saying it is how he speaks with some of his friends. His brother, Toronto Coun. Doug Ford, earlier said the video couldn’t have been filmed Monday night because he had talked to Rob Ford at 10:30 p.m. A user of the social-media site Instagram posted a photo of the mayor posing with two men and identified the location as a restaurant called Steak Queen in the northwest area of Toronto. Ford did not answer questions about how he got to the restaurant in that state.

Burns Lake mill sues Toshiba; faulty motor cited in deadly blast CANADIAN PRESS
The company at the centre of a deadly sawmill explosion in Burns Lake is suing Toshiba International Corp., alleging it supplied the motor that sparked the fire leading to the blast. In a B.C. Supreme Court statement of claim, Babine Forest Products alleges electrical arcing in a conveyor motor ignited combustible material, causing the blast that killed two people and injured 20 others two years ago. The lawsuit claims Toshiba and three other affiliated companies were negligent because they failed to manufacture the motor to a reasonable standard. WorkSafeBC said in a report released last week that friction likely caused accumulated sawdust in a motor in the mill to smoulder. The report said the smouldering turned into an open flame and, when sawdust in the air caught fire, the explosion blew a large fireball through the roof. The WorkSafeBC report concluded the explosion could have been prevented had Babine taken action to control wood dust. The Crown said two weeks ago no charges would be laid in connect to the blast.
Premier orders review of Burns Lake case By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS
Premier Christy Clark has ordered a review of the decision not to lay charges after the fatal explosion and fire in Burns Lake on Jan. 20, 2012. Clark has directed her deputy minister, John Dyble, to review the circumstances that led to the decision. WorkSafeBC’s investigation has been criticized after Crown prosecutors said some of their evidence would not be admissible in court because of the way it was gathered. Clark said the review is not to second-guess the independent decision of the criminal justice branch. “But, if there are lessons to be learned from this, I want to make sure that we learn them,” she said. Two workers died and 20 more were injured in the explosion and fire at Burns Lake. A provincewide pro-
gram of sawmill-dust inspections has been in place since the Babine mill explosion and a similar blast at Lakeland Mills in Prince George in April 2012. NDP Leader Adrian Dix said there should be a review, but Dyble is not the right person to do it because he reports to the premier. Dix said the investigation was “bungled,” adding cabinet ministers also intervened to keep a B.C. Safety Authority report on the situation from being made public before last May’s electio. WorkSafeBC is considering orders and penalties for the owners of the Babine Forest Products mill, which is being rebuilt. WorkSafeBC investigators concluded that the explosion was preventable. They found the company knew its dustollection system was under-sized, but the mill increased production before an electrical upgrade was completed.

Garmin has showcased a range of new infotainment technologies for automakers at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014. Designed to minimize distractions behind the wheel, Garmin will present an interactive head-up display (HUD) interface as well as new developments of its K2 infotainment platform to selected industry members and the press in a private meeting room. The interactive HUD concept provides a glimpse at how an automotive HUD interface designed by Garmin can help keep the driver’s hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Balancing functionality with simplicity, the interface includes a passive state and an interactive mode. The passive state presents customizable audio, navigation or communication content just below the driver’s line of sight. A simple and clean interface provides important information quickly and at a glance. The navigation view, for example, can show information such as junction views, lane guidance, speed limit and safety warnings. The innovative proximity sensor on the steering wheel activates an interactive mode on the HUD that allows users to switch between the different pages. Two steering-wheel buttons let users select in-menu options, such as start a route, view traffic information, change a radio station or initiate a phone call. Users can save presets in each menu for quick access while on the road and eyes facing straight ahead. The audio menu, for example, could contain saved radio stations, playlists and songs.

Throughout 2014, Mopar will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the iconic secondgeneration (Gen II) 426 Race Hemi engine to motorsports competition and its eventual initiation to production vehicles. To kick off the yearlong commemoration of the legendary engine, Mopar has created a 50thanniversary logo. The design incorporates an elephant in reference to the engine’s moniker, which resulted from the power plant’s imposing size, strength and power. The logo also features the trademark Hemi-orange colour that covered the engine and made it even more recognizable. While Chrysler engineers initially introduced the original hemispherical combustion engine design for passenger cars in 1951 and celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2011, the iconic and revolutionary second-generation Hemi engine, so closely associated with the muscle car era, made its memorable debut in 1964. The new second generation Hemi measured 426 cubic inches and was built specifically to win races. Two versions of this 426 race engine were built — one called the “Circuit” or “Track” engine and the other the “Acceleration” or “Drag” engine. The Gen II 426 Race Hemi was first introduced at the Daytona 500 in February 1964 with legendary driver Richard Petty winning the race handily in his Plymouth, while a dominating performance by three other Hemi-powered Petty drove to eight victories and earned the NASCAR championship in 1964
