British Columbia’s mining industry continues to grow and expand as new projects, construction starts and expansions drove job creation and investment throughout the mining industry in 2013. The most important highlight of 2013 was the celebration of a new mine going into production in August. Mt. Milligan mine north of Prince George, a $1.5-billion project with 350 permanent jobs, shipped its first copper ore in late summer and celebrated its commissioning in October. Additionally, a number of operating mines made improvements to their operations. Both Gibraltar Mine in the Cariboo

British Columbia’s mining remains strong in 2013, adds new jobs

and Line Creek in the Kootenays received Mines Act permit amendments that resulted in almost $400 million in investment and ensured jobs for 650 workers. Mine construction dominated industry progress in 2013 with a number of large projects well on their way to becoming producing mines. Red Chris mine in the Northeast is well on its way. The $500-million project is expected to start producing ore

this year. Roman mine, near Tumbler Ridge, also started construction and the company is working toward production in 2014. Both industry and the province continue to work closely with First Nations on resource development, setting out clear expectations for the consultation process and working toward more revenue-sharing agreements. Mining employs more First Nations than any other industry in B.C.

The province has signed 10 economic and community development agreements with First Nations to date. In 2013, the first cheques were delivered to First Nations for agreements with New Afton, Copper Mountain and Highland Valley mines. Mining continues to be one of B.C.’s safest heavy industries and has a lower injury rate than most of the other resource and industrial sectors. Since the BC Jobs Plan was released, two new mines are in operation, and five more are under construction or permitted. The province also has approved seven major expansions of existing mines.

Men helping men in South Cariboo The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) will be host a monthly Men’s Night every second Thursday of the month, starting on Feb. 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. Men experience significant challenges in our society, says CFEC counsellor Paul Scott. “They are taught to be strong, competitive, stoic, invulnerable and ‘never cry or show emotion’ and then our 20th century society asks them to be flexible, collaborative, understanding, empathetic and demonstrate emotional intelligence.” The night will be

facilitated by Scott who has been providing counselling and support to youth, men and couples in the South Cariboo for the past 12 years. Each month, Scott says, there will be a topic of interest to men, which will be followed by a time for discussion. “The evenings will offer opportunities for men to network and meet other men from the community, as well as learn valuable skills to enhance their personal lives and relationships.” On Feb. 13, the topic will be

“Building Stronger Communication Skills,” or “He said, She said.”

For more information, call the CFEC at 250-395-5155.

Pre-registration is appreciated, but drop in are also encouraged.

Legion’s hearts, doors open to community Carole Rooney Free Press

Folks may wish to shine up their dancing shoes and line up their sweetheart because a Valentine’s Day Dance is being held at The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #260-100 Mile House.

Organizer Shirley Dupuis says six spot dance prizes and a “big” door prize will be awarded, and there will be snacks to munch on and live music by Perfect Match of Williams Lake. Doors open at 7

p.m. on Feb. 14, and tickets are available in advance for $15 at the Legion at 933 Alder Ave. on the 99 Mile Hill, or by calling 250-3952511. Non-members will be signed in as a guest by members when

they arrive, she notes, along with your dance partner, if you bring one. “This is Valentine’s, and our hearts are open to them all. Anybody is more than welcome, and if they want to bring another guest with them, or a couple, that’s fine, too.”

Family dispute resolutions

Ne w t raining and practice standards require, for the first time, that family dispute resolution professionals meet minimum training and practice standards, including training on how to screen for family violence. Under British Columbia’s Family Law Act, families going through separation and divorce are encouraged to consider, where appropriate, out-ofcourt family dispute resolution options. These options include the services of professionals, such as mediators, parenting co-ordinators and arbitrators. The new training standards will ensure families are directed to safe and appropriate processes conducted by qualified professionals. As of Jan. 1, 2014, all dispute resolution professionals are required

to meet the following new standards with regard to family violence: • At least 14 hours of in-depth training on how to identify, screen for and manage family violence or power imbalances to determine whether, or what type of dispute resolution process is appropriate. • A minimum level of family-related experience (between two and 10 years) and training in their area of practice (between 40 and 80 hours). • A minimum of 10 hours a year of ongoing training to ensure their skill set remains relevant. • Extensive training in family law. Prior to the new regulations under the Family Law Act, there were no minimum training or practice standards for mediators, parenting co-ordinators and

arbitrators. The full list of regulations can be found at rRIq3. Lawyers who act as family law mediators, parenting co-ordinators or arbitrators also have to meet similar training and practice standards under new Law Society of British Columbia rules. This will ensure that all family dispute resolution professionals, whether they are lawyers or non-lawyers, meet minimum standards.

Lisa is pleased to announce that Cindy Holley is the new owner of Cindy’s 108 Cookery Inc. formerly Dowes Diner. "This has been more than a diner. It’s been a gathering place for friends who have supported me ever since the doors opened”, says Lisa, “I've met so many terrific people and I am going to miss our chats." Adding that she is glad that Diane (who has worked with her for the past two years and is formerly of Shields) will stay on. Knowing that she is leaving her "friends" in Cindy's capable hands makes the transition a little easier. Cindy has years of experience in the hospitality industry and has owned restaurants before. Moving up to the 108 Ranch area almost 2 years ago, Cindy is looking forward to meeting her customers and wants to assure everyone that Cindy's 108 Cookery Inc. is still the gathering place in 108. "I am looking forward to meeting everyone. The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., so come on in and introduce yourselves."

Local birders counting feathered friends Local birder Barrie Bolton compiled the annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) in the 100 Mile House area on Dec. 28, 2013. He carried out the count in the field, while there were five people monitoring their feeders during the day. The CBC is conducted in more than 2,000 localities across Canada, the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The counts are conducted on one day between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5 inclusive. They are carried out within a 24-kilometre diameter circle that stays the same from year to year. “As well as adding an exciting and fun event to the holiday season, the Christmas Bird Count provides important information for bird conservation.” Bolton notes data from the counts across the country was used in assessment reports that added the western screech-owl, rusty blackbird, and Newfoundland red crossbill to the Species at Risk Act lists. The

general database was used extensively in the recent State of Canada’s Birds report, he adds. The official CBC in 100 Mile House is only in its third year, Bolton says, adding several keen local birders have kept records periodically since the late ’90s. Wendy Marshall has been doing the same for the Bridge Lake CBC for

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, listen carefully when a family member comes to you with some sage advice. Even a seemingly relaxed conversation may prove fruitful. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you may seem rushed this week, but resist the temptation to go faster than is comfortable for you. Take your time so things are done right the first time. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you may have so much fun this week that you don’t realize you have been getting work done in the process. Your attitude is inspiring others around you. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Take a step back when you don’t see eye to eye with a colleague, Virgo. Disagreements can escalate, so keep a level head and take all things into consideration. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, your intuition and ability to work with people closely will make your life much more enjoyable. Make use of these talents as you pursue a new career path. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Falling into a slump just isn’t your style, Scorpio. Even if things don’t seem to be going your way, your attitude and work ethic will make the most of the situation.
