Cliff rescue

Councillors concerned proposed B&B changes City leaders concerned proposed fix to bed and breakfast bylaw doesn’t allow for community input on new businesses in residential neighbourhoods and doesn’t recoup costs associated with rentals Aaron Orlando

Two city councillors have objected to a staff plan to reform Revelstoke’s ‘bed and breakfast’ bylaw. As reported in the Jan. 29 issue of the Times Review, city staff are proposing changes to the bylaw after a review discovered that 22 of the 23 existing bed and breakfasts don’t conform with the existing zoning rules. Key changes proposed in a city staff report include: – legally allowing bed & breakfasts in residential neighbourhoods – currently, a maximum of four sleeping units are allowed under zoning rules, but the business licence restricts bed & breakfasts to two sleeping units. If the property provides a parking space per unit, a maximum of four units is permitted. – requiring one parking space per sleeping unit – the rules spell out a maximum of two parking spaces in the front yard – a new rule will prohibit having a secondary suite in a home that operates

Revelstoke food charter presented for city review

Economic development support for farmers, discouraging more big box food stores are two of many possible directions in next stage of Revelstoke food charter process Aaron Orlando

After months of planning, members of a volunteer steering committee have completed and presented a proposed food charter to the City of Revelstoke. Committee member Hailey Ross presented the document to Revelstoke’s city council on Jan. 28, while about half a dozen committee members looked on. The charter, which was completed in draft form in October, presents the following vision for food security in Revelstoke:

Recognizing that Revelstoke is culturally diverse, we are committed to strengthening our food resilience to support the economic, ecological and social well-being of the community with: —Access to nutritious, safe affordable food as a basic human right for all residents —Access to food that is sustainably and ethically produced —Recognize the importance of quality food to our health and wellbeing —Increasing local and regional food production through personal, business and government actions

—Appreciating the importance of eating together. Ross told council that the process of developing the charter had been beneficial. “We feel very strongly that this is a community-driven project,” she said. “It brought us together to talk about a lot of the projects we are working on. That in itself has been very useful, very fruitful.” The document points the way towards creating a “just and sustainable” food system. To get there, it makes 13 recommendations. They include the following: –Consider potential impacts on

food resilience in all government, business and personal decisions —Facilitate household and community-based food production and preservation for self-reliance —Encourage responsible and sustainable harvesting of wild foods —Help to preserve regional farmlands and increase use of arable land for sustainable food production Ross explained the committee was seeking support from the City of Revelstoke, but it’s not a city document. “In order to truly do this we need it endorsed by our decision-makers,” she told the Times Review. She explained the food charter is a “long-term, visionary type of document” and the next step – the Rev-

elstoke food security strategy – gets down to details and makes plans. In what ways will the municipal government be directly involved with the food charter and food security plan, I asked Ross. What part to they have to play? She said the city could – potentially – exercise its powers to prevent large retailers detrimental to food security from setting up shop here. The city could discourage “the development of another large supermarket that is owned by somebody not in the community that brings in a lot of cheap food that is only cheap because it is reliant upon a disadvantaged labour force and an industrial model would not therefore be supported if we’re

Rescuers pluck snowboarder from Judge dismisses heliskiing ‘ski buddy’ lawsuit mountain after cliff fall AARON ORLANDO

Revelstoke Search & Rescue used a helicopter and long line to pluck a local man from the base of a cliff on Mount Mackenzie’s treacherous northern face after he sustained bad injuries in a fall down the cliff. Initial reports say the 21-year-old fell about 100 metres down a cliff in an out of bounds area on the north side of Revelstoke Mountain Resort. He was able to use his cell phone to call for help at about 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 28. The incident triggered a rescue effort that lasted for several hours and involved Revelstoke Search & Rescue, Revelstoke Mountain Resort patrol, the B.C. Ambulance Service and Revelstoke RCMP. After locating the man, rescuers called for the BC Ambulance Service’s Kamloops-based critical care helicopter, which landed next to waiting police and rescuers in a staging ground in the Greeley area. The critical care ambulance is usually only called for very serious injuries requiring direct transfer to a trauma centre. Revelstoke Search & Rescue then used a helicopter and rope to lower a rescuer into the scene and package the injured man into a stretcher.

With the rescuer and the injured man hanging from the rope below the helicopter, they lifted him to the landing pad in Greeley, where land and helicopter ambulance paramedics were waiting to treat him. The man was then flown to Kamloops with what Revelstoke RCMP described as “non-life threatening injuries.” Initial reports indicate the man was snowboarding on the northern face of Mt. Mackenzie, in an area outside the Revelstoke Mountain Resort boundary. That part of the mountain is characterized by sheer cliffs and unskiable terrain that starts not far from the boundary rope. Authorities asked skiers and snowboarders to take care: “Revelstoke Mountain Resort and the Revelstoke RCMP would like to remind skiers and snowboarders that signs are clearly marked identifying out of bounds areas on this ski hill and ignoring these signs can lead to injury or death,” said Cpl. Thomas Blakney in a A Revelstoke SAR rescuer and an injured statement. man hang below a helicopter as they approach the Greeley area on Jan. 28. The man Signage in the area indicates was injured in a cliff fall on Mt. Mackenzie. the deadly terrain below.


A judge has found that a ‘ski buddy’ who was partnered with a man who fell into a tree well and died while the pair were heli-skiing is not responsible for the man’s death. Colorado resident Mark Kennedy died in 2009 while on an excursion with Mike Wiegele heli-skiing, which is based out of Blue River, B.C. His widow launched a lawsuit against Adrian Coe, who had been assigned by guides as his buddy on the heli-trip. Ski buddies keep an eye out for each other while skiing, and alert guides of any issues. In her lawsuit, Elizabeth Kennedy alleged Coe failed in his duty as a ski buddy, saying he didn’t stay close, or assist Kenney properly. According to media reports, Mark Kennedy was a successful Colorado lawyer who left behind an estate worth $18 million, half of which his wife inherited. She sought damages compensating for her husband’s lost future earnings. The lawsuit caused some concern in the heli-ski industry because of a potential chilling effect it could have on clients. However, in a Jan. 27 Supreme Court of B.C. ruling Justice Fisher dismissed the plaintiff’s claim. Justice Fisher found the two heli-skiers’ relationship was “not contractual.” She added there was “no basis on which to find that Mr. Coe was in default of any obligation to immediately alert the guides,” adding that “timing will depend on the circumstances and the information available to the skier.” In her conclusion, Justice Fisher called the incident a tragedy: “It is indeed very sad that Mr. Kennedy met a tragic and untimely death, but he did so after a terrible accident while participating in a highrisk sport and responsibility for his death cannot be placed on Mr. Coe.”

Council moves ahead with revite tax break bylaw Aaron Orlando

Despite a staff report that highlighted many of the downsides of creating a revitalization tax break bylaw, city council opted to move forward with the concept. The decision came at their Jan. 28 meeting, where city councillors opted to hold a Feb. 11 workshop to explore the idea. The revitalization bylaw would grant temporary tax breaks to business owners who make improvements to their properties; the idea is to offset tax increases that come with higher property assessments after improvements. If done correctly, the bylaw

can be a tool to revitalize targeted neighborhoods and can actually increase tax revenues long-term. But a staff report highlighted downsides, saying creating the plan can be costly, and if it isn’t in sync with planning objectives, it is subject to the law of unintended consequences, such as tax revenue loss from an illconceived bylaw. The proposed bylaw is permitted under the Community Charter. The discussion of the bylaw was prompted by a request for tax relief from the Mt. Begbie Brewing Co. Brewer owners want to build a new brewery in Revelstoke, but say current taxation levels make it prohibitively costly. In late

2013, company president Bart Larson asked for tax relief in general, not this bylaw specifically. Council had mixed discussion about the staff report. “It’s really important that we get this right,” said Coun. Gary Starling, noting the downsides of a poorly conceived bylaw. “It could potentially sway the balance of taxation towards residential.” Coun. Phil Welock also said the plan needed to be studied. “To do this we need the support of the community, especially the business community, and I think it is there.” Mayor David Raven added to the chorus advocating for proceeding cautiously.

“There is a real need to be fair, just, equitable and clear,” the mayor said. “We have to be really careful as to how we step into this one.” Coun. Tony Scarcella presented a different vision, saying it was appropriate to move forward with a limited bylaw that targeted the brewery’s proposed new location next to the Revelstoke Railway Museum. “I think just now we should concentrate on that property,” Scarcella said. He argued that the empty lot brings in little tax revenue, and a developed property would bring in many times more, effectively paying back the city for any tax concession within five years.

Two killed in TransCanada head-on collision Black Press

Two people were killed and one injured in a head-on collision between two tractor-trailers near Chase in the early morning of Jan. 31. At about 5:40 am, two tractor-trailer units, one headed eastbound and the other westbound, collided on a two-lane section of the Trans-Canada Highway, about one kilometre west of Chase. The driver and one passenger in the eastbound rig were killed, while the westbound driver suffered minor injuries and was transported to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops for treatment. The use of the collision is under investigation by Chase Detachment and RCMP South East District collision analysts. Road conditions were bare and dry at the time.

B.C.-Alberta gov’t energy group plans controversial ‘energy literacy’ work Black Press

A B.C.-Alberta government working group on energy development has issued its first report, recommending efforts to “increase the public’s energy literacy on oil transportation, production and impacts on daily life.” The group was set up by B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford last summer, after they agreed to co-operate on ways to increase oil and gas development and export. Headed by deputy ministers from both provinces, the working group released its first report this week. The report notes a “disconnect between public perception and the reality” of the importance of oil and gas to the Canadian economy. The industry is the largest contributor to Canada’s balance of trade, and investment of $55 billion in new capital projects in 2012 alone. It also records that Canada is losing an estimated $50 million a day in potential revenue due to lack of access to oil customers outside the

United States, and acknowledges that without additional pipeline capacity, crude oil will increasingly be shipped by rail. To respond to “misinformation on numerous fronts” on technology, economic benefits, environmental issues and regulatory practices, the report suggests increased effort in communities, First Nations and schools. One program cited as an example is the Canadian Geographic Energy IQ Program, a partnership between the magazine and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers to “provide an interactive educational experience for students in the classroom on the prevalence of energy.” Redford and Clark agreed last year to support B.C.’s five conditions for new heavy oil pipelines from Alberta to the Pacific coast, and Alberta’s proposal for a national energy strategy to improve access to markets for Canadian energy. B.C.’s conditions include “world class” spill prevention on land and at sea, which the report describes as an evolving target. The report paints a rosy picture of oil spill response off the coast,

despite a study done for the B.C. government last year that found little capacity to recover crude oil spilled off the North Coast.a The report also describes the

Will City of Revelstoke support Revelstoke food charter? Food charter, from page 1 going by the values of this charter,” Ross said. The city could direct its economic development office to focus on supporting local agriculture initiatives instead. “It would be contributing their supplying our local economy with something that is still in accordance with the values in that charter, as opposed to supporting a business that takes away from the ability to support those values,” Ross said. Food charters are increasingly common in B.C. and beyond. The Revelstoke charter has some ele-

ments tailored to our particular environment. For example, in an area surrounded by hunting and foraging opportunities, wild food policy is emphasized. On the other hand, the committee felt the emphasis on culturally-appropriate foods wasn’t as big a priority. So, how was the charter received by council? They opted to send it to staff to study, and then report back at the next council meeting. Mayor David Raven asked if the charter is just for the City of Revelstoke, or if it includes areas of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District around Revel-

stoke. “[The Columbia Shuswap Regional District board of directors has] just recommended a large tract of farm land be taken out of the [Agricultural Land Reserve], probably the last remaining tract of farmland in the valley,” Raven said, referring to proposed developments in the Greeley area. At the meeting, and in a subsequent interview with the Times Review, Ross explained the plan will likely be for the Revelstoke area, but those details are to be worked out during the food security strategy stage. The 11-member committee has applied for about $20,000 in funding from several sources to take on that project.

Gov’t recommends liquor sales in grocery stores, relaxed rules at public events Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government is moving ahead with promised liquor reforms, promising free-range drinking at music festivals, stadiums and hotels as well as eventual sales in grocery stores. Attorney General Suzanne Anton announced Friday that the government is accepting all 73 recommendations from RichmondSteveston MLA John Yap, who led a consultation last year on updating archaic liquor laws. New rules include eliminat-

ing the requirement for fencing around music festival beer gardens, licensing the entire site via a simpler application. “This will allow families to stay together at events, reduce costs for festival organizers and make the festival experience that much better for all fans of live music,” said Bob D’Eith, executive director of Music B.C. Along with a dip in the Canadian dollar, the move should be good news for the Squamish Valley Music Festival in early August. Organizers have announced a

high-profile lineup including Detroit rapper Eminem, Quebec’s Arcade Fire and Hawaiian singersongwriter Bruno Mars. The normally laid-back Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival had an incident in 2009, when reggaerock band Bedouin Soundclash invited patrons of the packed beer garden to break down the fence and join the main throng in front of the stage for their final Saturday night set. The invitation was quickly accepted, with damage restricted mainly to the snow fencing.



The Merritt Mountain Music Festival ran for nearly 20 years, becoming notorious for uninhibited all-night parties featuring outdoor couches and hot tubs. It was cancelled in 2010 after efforts to tone it down resulted in poor attendance. It has since been replaced by the Bass Coast Music and Art Festival, a dry event that relocated from Squamish last year. The country crowd now has the option of the Rockin’ River Music Fest in Mission Aug. 7-9, with this year’s lineup including Rascal Flatts and Terri Clark.

In sports stadiums, hard liquor sales will no longer be restricted to premium seating and private boxes. Anton warned that some recommendations, such as liquor sales in grocery stores, will take time to implement, and legislation is needed for some changes. The B.C. Government Employees’ Union, representing government liquor store workers, called for the new “store within a store” expansion to be publicly owned and staffed by its members.

as a bed & breakfast. At their Jan. 28 regular meeting, two city councillors objected to the proposed B&B changes as presented, but were out-voted 4-2, meaning the proposal will proceed to a public hearing on Feb. 25 at 2:30 p.m. in council chambers. Coun. Tony Scarcella felt the system as presented was unfair to hotels and motels, who pay commercial taxation rates. The bed and breakfasts will use additional city services, and there should be a way to recoup those costs, Scarcella argued. “I think they should share the burden, not the taxpayer subsidizing the bed and breakfast,” he said. Coun. Scarcella’s questioned the approval process for new bed and breakfasts. Will neighbours have any say when new bed and breakfasts are proposed, or is it just a matter of getting a business license? When he heard it was the latter, Scarcella said he couldn’t support that system. Coun. Chris Johnston said he was all for speeding up city processes, but was concerned the bylaw approval process wouldn’t provide enough opportunity for public input. “It could be a significant impact on the community,” Johnston said. “I am wondering if there should be further public process and input.” Coun. Gary Starling said the change was overdue, but was happy with the approval process as presented. “I see a few issues in here that the public may weigh in on,” he said. In the end, council voted to move forward with first readings of the bylaw and set the public hearing for Feb. 25. Councillors Johnston and Scarcella voted in opposition. The bylaw will also be referred for committee input. There was concern at council that a public hearing wouldn’t provide opportunity for understanding and input into the changes.

Why are 22 of 23 bed and breakfasts ‘non-conforming?’ How did a situation arise where almost all bed and breakfasts in Revelstoke don’t jibe with the zoning bylaw?

City of Revelstoke Director of Engineering and Development Services Mike Thomas said a “recent review” of the zoning bylaw turned up an error made in the past. Previously, bed and breakfasts were classified and licenced as “home occupations” under the city’s zoning bylaw. The recent review identified the fact that bed and breakfasts are defined as a separate use under the bylaw. “As bed and breakfast is separate and defined use, these operations should not be classed as home occupation,” Thomas explained. In fact, the bed and breakfast use is not allowed in residential zones such as R1, R1A, R2 and R2A. But because the existing operations have a business licence from the City of Revelstoke, they are considered “legally non-conforming,” Thomas said.

What really happened at Jan. 8 derailment? AARON ORLANDO Opinion

I spent a considerable amount of time over the past weeks trying to find out what really happened at a train derailment near Golden on Jan. 8. I was tipped off by local railroaders about the incident on Jan. 9, and filed a report later that day, after putting an extensive list of questions to Calgary-based CP Rail spokesperson Kevin Hrysak, and Regional Senior Investigator for the Transportation Safety Board of Canada James Carmichael. Neither of them had attended the scene of the crash, which is about eight kilometres east of Golden, B.C. It happened in a particularly sensitive section of the railway. The line weaves through tunnels and over bridges at the bottom of the Kicking Horse Canyon, right at the shore of the Kicking Horse River. At the location where the incident occurred, the downhill grade flattens out, requiring a shift in braking. There is a small tunnel right next to the river. In my report, I stated the following: “Hrysak said the train wasn’t carrying any hazardous materials, such as oil, liquid petroleum gas, explosives or hazardous chemicals.” It wasn’t long before that was in dispute, and many other facts associated with the report. I followed up with the B.C. Ministry of Environment, who did send an employee to the site. Their version of the incident differs somewhat. CP Rail reported six cars derailed, but the B.C. Ministry of Environment said ten cars derailed, and provided an itemized list of the cars. Hrysak said that two of the three cars involved are “three-pack” container cars, and said the “proper reporting requirements” had been provided to government agencies. “But for formal paperwork purposes it shows that 10 cars did derail,” Hrysak wrote. I asked Hrysak about the statement that the train wasn’t carrying “any hazardous materials, such as oil, liquid petroleum gas, explosives or hazardous chemicals.”

The grey pool in the foreground shows fish oil spilled in a Jan. 8 train derailment near Golden, B.C. In the background, the Kicking Horse River, where some of the oil leaked. B.C. Ministry of Environment image

He replied that he meant there hadn’t been any in the derailed cars. I reviewed the recording of our Jan. 9 interview. Here is the passage: Times Review: “So, there was no hazardous materials on the train, there was no petrochemicals, no LNG or anything like that?” Hrysak: “Correct.” Orlando: “OK” Hrysak: “That were involved.” *** In a subsequent telephone interview, I asked Hrysak if we could find out if the train was in fact carrying any of the hazardous cargo listed above. In an email response, he said the answer was not “relevant.” “The remaining consist [sic] is not relevant to the incident as they were not among the cars that were involved and there was no public safety concerns as mentioned,” Hrysak said. Can you imagine, ten years from now, a tanker running aground on the West Coast, but

no transportation official comes to investigate, and questions about the contents of the ship are dismissed as not ‘relevant?’ Although the 500 litres of fish oil that was spilled in the incident is benign, a B.C. Ministry of Environment spokesperson did confirm that some of it spilled into the Kicking Horse River. *** According to a media report, CP Rail shipped 90,000 carloads of crude oil in 2013, a 68 per cent increase over 2012. CP hopes to double that again to 210,000 by 2015. As reported in the Times Review last week, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada is recommending new safety rules for rail transport in Canada as a result of increases in crude oil shipments.

Accused in Shelter Bay drowning in court Black Press

A former New Zealand politician who, for now, lives behind bars at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre awaiting his first-degree murder trial, was in court this week filing stacks of legal paperwork. Peter Beckett, 57, is facing charges of first-degree murder, counselling to commit murder and obstructing justice. The former New Zealand town councillor is alleged to have killed his wife, Laura LettsBeckett, 50, by pushing her off a boat at Shelter Bay — south of Revelstoke — in 2010. He was arrested a year later. In B.C. Supreme Court on Monday, Jan. 27, Beckett filed

five disclosure applications. He is expected to return to court next month for arguments on those applications. In late 2012, while Beckett was in custody charged with murder, he was charged with the additional counts following an undercover jailhouse investigation by RCMP. Police allege Beckett plotted to kill five witnesses — including Letts-Beckett’s parents, an RCMP sergeant and an Alberta lawyer — while behind bars. Beckett and his wife lived north of Edmonton at the time of the incident and are believed to have been in B.C. on vacation. The drowning was first believed to have been an accident.

A New Zealand native, Beckett served as a town councillor in Napier from 1998 to 2001. Napier is a coastal town of about 58,000 on the east side of New Zealand’s north island, about 300 kilometres from Auckland. New Zealand media reports describe Beckett as something of a Kiwi Rob Ford, who made headlines for assaulting the captain of a rugby team in a pub and stealing taxpayer-purchased liquor from city meetings. Most recently, he worked as a school bus driver in Westlock, Alta. Beckett is due back in court on Feb. 11 to fix a date for his disclosure arguments. — with files from Black Press

Water, liquor, gas budget topics


BY NORM MACDONALD The BC Legislature will finally reopen on Feb. 11. It will begin with a throne speech that should lay out the B.C. government’s agenda for the year, followed the next week by the presentation of the provincial budget for 2014– 2015. The primary focus of the session, which lasts until the beginning of June, will be passing the budget including a process called estimates. This is when opposition members question ministers



on their individual ministry budgets. The questions can be wideranging and often extend to several days of questioning for each ministry. MLAs will also deal with legislation. Some specific legislation is expected to be presented, but inevitably, there will also be surprises. The BC Liberals have indicated they intend on presenting legislation that will change the Water Act, change liquor laws, as well as set up a tax and royalty structure for liquefied natural gas. They will also potentially reintroduce a very troubling change to forestry tenures. The legislative session also features a daily 30-minute opportunity for the opposition to question the premier and ministers on any issue the provincial government is responsible for. This is an important tool for opposition to

hold the government to account. People can watch proceedings on various cable channels in most of our communities and can also see video or printed transcripts on the website As your representative my job is to represent your concerns and your interests, and I rely on you to take the time to communicate your issues with me. My constituency office staff and I are always available to help you with provincial matters.

Babies of 2013 Publishing February 19th

CP: train cargo not ‘relevant’ from previous page incident and what actually happened could be dismissed as semantics, the overall picture is worth noting. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada didn’t attend and is relying on reports from CP Rail for their investigation. The incident wasn’t notable mainly because it was fish oil that spilled – not whatever else that may have been on the train. The report into the incident will take months and won’t likely be made public. Also last week, a B.C.-Alberta government working group recommended increasing the public’s “energy literacy” – a poor wording

choice bound to rub many the wrong way. Pipeline proponents have learned to leverage public fear following the Lac-Megantic disaster to present and either-or argument – either a pipeling or more oil by rail. It’s not. But we need to engage in the issue, ore we’ll end up with whatever transportation system others decide for us. In Revelstoke, we have a lot to lose. The CP line runs next to the Illecillewaet River, which runs through Revelstoke and into the Columbia. Rail accidents happen – like the raging fire that nearly destroyed the bridge over the Columbia River last May.

Editor takes a break Revelstoke Times Review editor Aaron Orlando will be away from his desk on a scheduled break for the next two

Where do we look for guidance on this multi-faceted, developing issue? Revelstoke has a leader on the rail safety file in Revelstoke City Councillor Gary Starling, and we should heed him. He’s a recentlyretired railroader who has been increasingly vocal about rail safety issues. If we don’t follow those who take a lead, their ability to be effective is diminished. He warns of a culture shift at CP Rail that places the emphasis on profit – and the new CEO Hunter Harrison would agree, announcing record annual profits last week to mark his his first full year in charge of the railway. will still be operational, but a response might take a little longer.

Premier considers appealing teacher ruling Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government is considering an appeal of a B.C. Supreme Court ruling that rejects legislation restricting teacher bargaining and assesses a penalty of $2 million plus court costs. “It doesn’t reflect government’s view of the case and the facts in the case,” Premier Christy Clark told a Kamloops radio station Tuesday. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said he is “disappointed” by the ruling, and ministry staff will study it before deciding on a possible appeal. Fassbender said he disagrees with the judge’s conclusion

that the government tried to provoke a strike by reintroducing provisions that had been struck down by the same judge. “What we need to do is to review the judge’s ruling in detail to see what the implications are, but clearly my message to school districts, to parents, is it’s business as usual in our schools,” Fassbender said. The B.C. Supreme Court ruling rejected the provincial government’s effort to keep class size and special needs support off the bargaining table with teachers, and ordered the government to pay $2 million in damages to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. In a ruling released Monday, Justice Susan Griffin said the B.C. government’s replace-

ment legislation, passed in 2011, is as unconstitutional as the 2002 law called Bill 28 that removed class size and special needs support from union working conditions. “The court concluded that the government did not negotiate in good faith with the union after the Bill 28 decision,” Griffin wrote. “One of the problems was that the government representatives were preoccupied with another strategy. Their strategy was to put such pressure on the union that it would provoke a strike by the union. The government representatives thought this would give government the opportunity to gain political support for imposing legislation on the union.”

The ruling strikes down the portions of the new legislation that have not already expired. BCTF president Jim Iker said the ruling returns contract language that was in place in 2002, and he expects that the province’s 60 school districts will have to rehire teachers and special needs assistants to reduce class size. He said there were 1,200 education specialists affected by the 2002 legislation, including teacher-librarians and counsellors. “It’s good for us, it’s good for public education, it’s good for British Columbia and for our students,” Iker said of Monday’s ruling. NDP education critic Rob Fleming called the ruling “real

Logging planned for Boulder Mountain Aaron Orlando

After controversy about logging near recreation areas at Mount Macpherson erupted, representatives from forestry company Stella-Jones are trying to boost communications before a planned cut on Boulder Mountain. They held an open house at the Revelstoke Community Centre on Jan. 31, where three company foresters were on hand to discuss plans for logging on the mountain. The cuts are visible from Revelstoke, and they will also impact some popular downhill mountain biking trails. Forester Pat McMechan explained that the company was harvesting blowdown and fir beetle-infected areas. A previous cut on Boulder several years ago covered about 45 hectares. This time, StellaJones plans to clear about 13 hectares. McMechan said the area contains about 60 per cent Douglas fir, and about 50 per cent of that amount is beetle infested. “That is visible. It’s probably more than that,” he said. In addition to the visual impact from Revelstoke, some This image created by Stella-Jones shows a before (above) and after bike trails will be impacted.

A new logging road will cross the Snakes and Ladders trail and the Redneck’s Revenge trail. McMechan said the company had consulted with the Revelstoke Cycling Association about the logging plans. Stella-Jones will work on a rehabilitation plan once harvesting is done. The representatives noted they haven’t yet submitted a harvesting proposal to provincial authorities, and are gathering input first. About 20–30 people attended the threehour open house at the Revelstoke Community Centre on Jan. 31.

Target practice with the Snow Punchers



TIMESReview n WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 n 11




5 Spend a day watching Parks Canada and the Royal Canadian Artillery perform avalanche control using a C3 105-mm Howitzer at Rogers Pass Historical Site? Yes please. I got the opportunity on Jan. 28, when a Canadian Army rotation from CFB Valcartier, Quebec would be testing a recently refurbished artillery piece. It was the crisp, clear day needed so the gunners could visually check where the shells landed – which was right on target about 2.5 kilometres up the slope. Operation Palaci started in 1961 and is the world’s largest mobile artillery avalanche control program, launching an average of 700 rounds each season at 270 target in 134 avalanche paths, all to keep the Trans-Canada Highway and the CP Rail line operational and safe. 1. Parks Canada’s Jeff Goodrich is the Senior Avalanche Control Officer at Rogers Pass, and works very closely with the Canadian Army on the program. 2. Lieutenant Brendan Alexander loves his job, joining in with the gunners as they hooted approval when thunderous explosions echoed across the valley. He’s pictured here in the Snow Punchers lounge at Rogers Pass. 3. Warrant Officer Jaime Diaz explains the operation of the artillery rounds. The fuse opens up during flight, exploding right on impact for maximum avalanche-starting force. 4. Engraved casings in the Snow Punchers barracks lounge celebrate past tours and athletic events. 5. The process is high-speed and efficient. The gunners unhook the Howitzer and set it up on a mount, then select the coordinates from a precise list. A nearby aiming guide allows for precise targeting in the thickest weather.

“Good evening, I invite you to sit closer,” announced Julia Taffe, artistic director and choreographer for the Aeriosa Dance Company at the opening of a video presentation at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre on Feb. 1. Taffe revealed the story of her greatest passions: dancing and climbing. Taffe has been a dancer all her life. She began climbing at age 22, took to it right away and began training to be a guide out of Squamish, B.C. “I loved the idea of being a tiny human hanging on by a thread of life,” she said. The clips of her solo experiments show her dancing in the mountains with elegant precision. In 2007, Taffe joined with rigger Abby Watkins as they set out to create a unique dance company. The name Aeriosa is an invention by Taffe beginning with the greek word aerios, meaning of the air. Dancers Julia Carr, Cara Sui and Meghan Goodman are three performers from a larger Aeriosa family performing at Revelstoke Secondary Scool. The presentation left a deep impression of the strong female presence and creative force that has brought them together at such great heights. “There is a lot of trust and support in our group,” Cara said while continuing on to explain how they had all met through friends and other dance collaborators. “Everything was pointing in that direction.” Taffe recalls the evolution of her dance career, “it was about timing and being ready.” Almost all of the pieces are done on high-pro-

file landmarks. To list a few, the Scotia Bank Dance Centre in Vancouver, The Banff Centre for Mountain Culture, Taipei City Hall, Toronto’s 58 story L Tower and the Stawamus Chief in Squamish. The Feb. 1 presentation at RSS, the sometimes dizzying footage of the group on these high rises brought viewers into a world of watery cadence where new perspectives of movement could emerge from the realm of suspension. A brilliant image of one routine had the dancers flipping and spinning like magenta pin-wheels against a neon white urban sky. From the footage at night they often appeared like tumbling celestial bodies interacting in a satisfying symmetry. The strength needed to draw control out of that buoyancy and freedom was apparent but made to look second nature. Some of the pieces were set to original scores created by members of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Inspiration for the works created so far sprawl from the Big Bang Theory to Taffe’s belief that dance is essential to our growth. She spoke of how dance is a rite of passage, helping us understand the animal within by taking us deeper into movement and expression. Refugia, which will be performed at RSS on Feb. 8, is about exclaiming dancer identity. “When people see dancing in a space then that visual stays with them in the memory of that place,” Taffe said. “It’s about creating a space for dancers to be, that dancers belong.” Aeriosa is sure to dazzle. Tickets are available at the ArtFirst!, the Chamber of Commerce, downtown Revelstoke and online through the Revelstoke Arts Council.

Fab Fourever a Beatles journey

Beatles tribute performers The Fab Fourever is a musical production that will transport you back to the heyday of the Beatles in the 1960s. The show charts their beginnings at the Cavern Club in Liverpool through their U.S. invasion, right through to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road. With vintage Beatle period specific instruments, and several full costume changes, the Fab Fourever have spared no detail in this production. They perform all of these memorable hits live, without any vocal overdubs or pre-recorded music. The Fab Fourever’s performance marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ only appearance on Canada’s West Coast – a 1964 concert at Empire Stadium. Feb. 6, 7:30 p.m. at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre. Tickets $20, available at Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce, various locations. Contributed/Times Review staff

Revelstoke racers take on Silver Star speed camp

Revelstoke Ski Club racer Colm Molder (left) and Alexis Welch tackle the speed camp course at Silver Star on Feb. 1.

Mary Clayton Revelstoke Ski Club

This past weekend went by more quickly than usual for some of the Revelstoke Ski Club’s young racers. A group of 10 to 14 year olds attended the Vernon Ski Club’s annual three-day speed camp at Silver Star Resort. Speed camp introduces the specialized skills of downhill and super-G events in a safe and highly controlled environment. The fully fenced and safety-netted 1.8 km course is initially skied section by section, with

coaches watching carefully. Then the racers take on the entire length over a thigh-burning one-and-half minutes, taking on jumps, rollers and long, sweeping curves at speeds over 90 km/h. Coach Filip Mertlik had high praise for the venue and the opportunity. “It’s great to have such a long course all to ourselves, with such excellent safety procedures,” he said. “This is where the kids start to learn how to handle real speed, which is an integral part of ski racing. This course allows us to approach high speeds carefully, in a controlled setting.”

For the racers, speed camp offers a unique opportunity to let their skis run without worry about others skiers on the slope. They concentrate on learning the subtleties of optimizing body position for aerodynamics and riding a flat ski for speed while using just enough edging to make the turns. Several rollers on the course will send them flying unless they pre-jump properly and barely leave the snow. There is a big emphasis on skier safety and numerous volunteers maintain the course and strictly control public skiers at two crossing

points. U14 racer Alexis Welch hit 91 km/h, one of the fastest speeds of the day. She explains that practice and familiarity with the course helps to build confidence. “Even though that’s the fastest I’ve ever gone, it didn’t feel that fast because I’m feeling more comfortable with the speed,” she said. “The speed training at home and at this camp has helped a lot. We practice each section and really get to know the course, so it’s not scary at all.”
