Pondering future of Ponderosa By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Contractor Bruce Gooch with mother Dorothy, who is recovering at home after a fall in December. She spent a month in Ponderosa Lodge recuperating and the family is upset it was billed.

Handed bill on ‘pathway to home’ By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The family of a Kamloops senior is questioning why she received a bill after going home from Royal Inland Hospital and Ponderosa Lodge. Dorothy Gooch fell in her home in December, fracturing her leg and dislocating a hip. She spent a week at RIH and was moved to Ponderosa Lodge as part of its “pathways to home” program. “I have to pay all of this,” Gooch complained of a stay of about a month at Ponderosa Lodge for which she was billed $1,400. On top of that was a $302 bill for drug prescriptions. But, the Interior Health Authority said it is mandated by the province to charge for what it calls an “alternate level of care.” The fee of $32 a day is standard provincewide. It covers meals and personal care. Another option is returning home with some supports from the IHA.

POOR SCORES

A recent inspection of Ponderosa Lodge identified 23 areas that were not compliant, including inadequate patient records, a broken thermometer on a fridge and limited or no access to recreation areas for some patients in care. The routine December inspection by the Interior Health Authority saw Ponderosa Lodge tally the poorest scores of any seniors’ facility in the city. The IHA said no orders were issued as a result of the inspection, meaning there is little negative impact to patient care. It said not all observations by public health inspectors are new and it continues working to resolve them. “The majority of issues relate to operational routines, such as paperwork and documentation of practices, not facility issues,” it said in a statement. IHA spokeswoman Michaela Swan said families are made well aware of the program, including its costs, by a care team that includes nurses, doctors and physiotherapists. That conversation with the patient is

documented. There is also a waiver of fees in hardship cases. “Our priority is to make sure people have the right supports in the best location, as well as to ensure that hospital beds are available for people who have acute needs,” she said. However, Dorothy’s son, Bruce Gooch, said he was not involved in any meeting about transfer to Ponderosa and costs. “I want to see that,” he said of the forms. “I want to know why they have an 85-yearold woman doped up on drugs sign something.” Gooch said the message from officials at RIH was they wanted to move his mother home after the week at RIH. But, his father is in long-term care and Dorothy required extensive help after surgery. “Everything they said to me was instead of staying in a bed at RIH, she was moving to Ponderosa. It was an extension of the hospital.” Patients with concerns about care or its costs can also appeal to IHA’s patient-care quality office.

While the Interior Health Authority moved 32 long-term care beds in September from the aging Ponderosa Lodge to a private facility in Brocklehurst, it has not reduced staffing. The future of those staffers and Ponderosa Lodge itself remains uncertain, officials acknowledged in recent interviews. “There’s a good possibility we’ll be occupying just the bottom two floors,” said Deb Smith, residential health services administrator for IHA West. The third floor of Ponderosa Lodge, located between Royal Inland Hospital and the courthouse on Columbia Street, was reopened in the fall of 2012. The health authority spent $3.1 million to open 33 beds intended to keep seniors out of RIH. Last fall, IHA contracted with Gemstone, a private facility in Brocklehurst, for 32 funded placements. Since then, it has undertaken renovations, including to address mould on the first floor. That work is intended to be complete in April.

“Staff hired on a temporary basis to support beds at Ponderosa prior to the opening of Brocklehurst Gemstone have been actively engaged in providing support for residents in these beds,” the IHA said in an emailed statement. It also acknowledged the situation is temporary, but has not discussed layoffs with the Hospital Employees’ Union. HEU spokeswoman Margi Blamey said residential-care workers at Ponderosa are wary of the next move by IHA. “There is no information our folks have since last fall,” she said. “What’s not changed is people’s anxiety about this.” Ponderosa Lodge is now home to 92 beds and has some flexibility to take additional overflow from RIH. Those beds are composed of 44 residential care beds — seniors waiting for placements elsewhere — as well as “pathway to home” beds for respite. In addition, Ponderosa houses recovering senior patients expected to return home with support after a hospital stay.

First Nations graduation rate soars Highest since data collection began two decades ago By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

WOODN’T A BREAK BE NICE?

Renee Spence foresees the day when a report on achievement of First Nations students in the Kamloops-Thompson district will no longer be required. The administrator of the First Nations Education Council said that time will come “when there is no difference between our kids and the rest of the school population.” Until then, however, data will continue to be gathered and presented to board of education trustees, as it was earlier this week, to provide accountability and measurements that reflect the “huge progress we’ve made in he last 10 years,” she said. “We still have a little way to go, though.” This year’s report, presented by Spence and Nathan

Matthew, executive director of aboriginal education at Thompson Rivers University, showed the number of aboriginal students who finished school last year with a Dogwood certificate to be the highest since collection of the data began almost two decades ago. There were 160 graduates, which represents 90 per net of those eligible to graduate. Spence said that is the main highlight for her, one she sees only improving as the district’s new school-completion coordinator’s work continues. “She’s going student by student and asking ‘Who is this kid? What do they need to succeed?’” Spence explained. “That’s the problem with the aggregate format [of the report]. It all gets rolled up in the numbers and we lose the faces.” Academic achievement has

improved in all primary grades, including the foundation skillsassessment tests and provincial exams. For example, in Grade 1 reading assessment, 82 per cent of aboriginal students are meeting expectations, compared to 91 per cent of non-aboriginal. Similar comparators are shown for writing in that grade (86 per cent for aboriginal, 94 per cent for non-aboriginal) but, in math, the numbers were almost identical, with 96 per cent of aboriginal students meeting expectations, compared to 98 per cent of nonaboriginals. “It used to be there was 15 or 20 per cent difference,” Spence said. “Now, in some places it’s just two or three per cent; in others, it’s seven per cent. “So, I would say the overall achievement data is a highlight.”

LOCAL NEWS NDP LEADER THOMAS MULCAIR COMES TO KAMLOOPS IN CAMPAIGN MODE

‘We have to be able to stop Stephen Harper’ By Christopher Foulds KTW EDITOR editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

The next federal election is set for Oct. 19, 2015, but NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair’s visit to Kamloops this week made it clear the Official Opposition is officially in campaign mode. Mulcair attracted a standing-room-only crowd of more than 100 to St. Andrews on the Square for his energetic appearance on Tuesday night (Feb. 18), which featured a 10-minute speech, followed by a 50-minute question-and-answer segment. Mulcair’s NDP has 100 seats in the House of Commons — 60 less than the Stephen Harper’s Conservatives and 64 more than Justin Trudeau’s Liberals. The man who succeeded the late Jack Layton in March 2012 made it clear his goal is to oust Harper from the Prime Minister’s Office while holding Trudeau at bay and not pursuing a centre-left

coalition. “Trudeau said if we work together, we could end up with Tom Mulcair as prime minister,” he said. “Here’s my priority — getting rid of Stephen Harper as prime minister. “I’d love to be able to do that with the other party [Liberals]. More often than not, he’s [Trudeau] not there. He’s out giving speeches and getting paid for them.” While Mulcair made sure to include the Liberal leader in his criticism, the bulk of his political arsenal was, naturally, reserved for Harper and the governing Conservatives. Changes to immigration laws; changes to the Election Act; corporations not paying their fair share; the closures of aid offices; election-campaign shenanigans; changes in health-care funding; loss of Canada’s reputation on the international stage; and an anti-knowledge, antiscience, anti-fact agenda — Mulcair cited all these Conservative

right wing wins and democracy loses,” he said. “Everything flows from this: We have to be able to stop Stephen Harper from changing the rules of

democracy so he can cheat his way to victory in the next election. “Stephen Harper is the first prime minister in Canadian history who thinks he is the master of Parliament. He does not think he is a servant of Parliament.” Mulcair also touched on other issues: • On the proposed Ajax mine in Kamloops, Mulcair said then-environment minister Peter Kent was a failure, noting the NDP would have required a joint panel review of the project; • As prime minister, Mulcair would have Canada attend the 2015 Paris climate conference, where a new international climate-change agree-

ment will be pursued; • The NDP would abolish the Senate, with Mulcair calling the $100-million per year institution “irreparably broken”; • Proportional representation will be a major idea the NDP will present to voters in the next election campaign, though Mulcair said there must be support from the public for it to be advanced; • An NDP government will ensure loans, grants and bursaries are available so cost is not a barrier to post-secondary education; • An NDP government will pursue a national child-care policy. Mulcair pointed to Quebec’s $7 per day system. “Despite what it costs, it actually puts more into the economy than what it costs,” he told the crowd; • ATM fees, payday-loan gouging, credit-card interest rates and the practise of gas-pricing at the pumps need to be investigated.

Court ruling could cost district $4.5 million By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Returning classrooms to the configuration of 2001 would cost the Kamloops-Thompson school district an estimated $4.5 million — at the minimum. School-district Supt. Terry Sullivan has filed an affidavit in support of the provincial government’s appeal of a recent court decision restoring teachers’ rights to bargain class size and composition. The hearing for the government’s request for a stay in the court ruling is set for Friday, Feb. 21. Sullivan said the assumptions in his affidavit are “hypothetical,” based on past classroom composition and current enrolment, and are not meant to raise anxiety, noting the school district has in place a plan if it is forced to implement 2001 classroom configuration immediately. Sullivan’s affidavit returning to the model in place in 2001 with today’s enrolment numbers would require 24 more elementary classes and almost 30 classroom and non-enrolling teacher full-time equivalents. Non-enrolling teachers include teacherlibrarians, counsellors and learning-assistance teachers. At the secondary level, 22.9 classroom and non-enrolling teacher full-time equivalents would be required. Sullivan’s affidavit said 12 portables would be required at the secondary level, assuming

computer and music rooms could be converted to regular classrooms and other space now occupied by First Nations educational programming, StrongStart pre-kindergarten programming and day cares could be recovered. If that is not possible, 17 portables would be needed. As there is one free portable in the district, the document stated, another 11 to 16 portables would need to be purchased at an estimated cost of $80,000 each, adding another $1.28 million to the price tag. In practical terms, the changes at the elementary level would mean adding portables to Dallas, David Thompson, Dufferin, Juniper Ridge, Kay Bingham, Lloyd George, Pacific Way, Raft River and Westmount schools. Losing the music/art or computer room would be required at Arthur Stevenson, Barriere, Dallas, Haldane, Juniper Ridge, Kay Bingham and Lloyd George elementary schools. More multi-grade classes would be required, possible with three or more grades, and there would be less choice at the secondary level, particularly if labs are needed for other course instruction. Sullivan also foresees “massive” humanresource disruption as the non-enrolling teachers are shifted back into the classroom, perhaps moving from secondary to elementary. The B.C. Supreme Court ruling in January ordered the government to return to the working conditions of 2002 levels. At the time, the government estimated the

cost to B.C. could be almost $2 billion. The ruling by Justice Susan Griffin also imposed a $2-million fine on the government for violating the teachers’ rights. It came after the B.C. Teachers’ Federation filed suit in 2012 after a similar court decision in 2011. That ruling led to the government creating a new piece of legislation, Bill 22, that was essentially the same as the one that had been ruled unconstitutional. Griffin also noted in her ruling the Liberal government made decisions designed to force the teachers into going on strike, in a bid to garner public support, another accusation Premier Christy Clark has denied. However, the B.C. government’s negotiator admitted in court his strategy in 2012 negotiations with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation was to provoke a full-scale strike. A transcript from the most recent BCTF court challenge over control of class size and support staff shows government negotiator Paul Straszak testified that provoking a fullscale strike was designed to move the union from its months-long ban on extra-curricular activities that started in the fall of 2011. Asked by the BCTF lawyer if the strategy was to close schools with a full-scale walkout, which had been authorized by the Labour Relations Board to last up to a week, Straszak replied “I’ll say yes.” Last week, the government filed its appeal, which included affidavits from various school districts in the province.

BY THE NUMBERS 2001: The year to which classroom configuration must be based, according to a court ruling. 4.5: Minimum cost, in millions of dollars, such a revision would cost the Kamloops-Thompson school district. 24: The number of extra elementary classrooms needed. 17: Number of portables possibly needed to be added. 2: Fine, in millions of dollars, levied against the provincial government. 22: Bill number at the centre of the battle.

Stuart Wood public meeting on March 27 Kamloops-Thompson board of education trustees have approved a series of motions to reconfigure school boundaries that include possibly closing Stuart Wood elementary. The motions include assigning Pacific Way graduates to Sa-Hali secondary instead of South

Kamloops secondary, effective September 2015, monitoring enrolment at Westsyde and Dallas elementary schools, consolidating South Kamloops secondary into one building and studying the feasibility of expanding Frenchimmersion programming. A public meeting on closing

Stuart Wood, which has students attending the city-owned heritage building at Third Avenue and Battle Street downtown, will be held on Thursday, March 27, at 7 p.m. at the Henry Grube Education Centre on Kitchener Crescent, at the north end of Overlanders Bridge.

City, union contract still being reviewed Though it’s been more than a month since the city of Kamloops and its unioned staff agreed to a new contract, the document itself is still a few weeks from its final signing. Lori Rilkoff, the city’s human-resources director, told KTW her department, as well as CUPE Local 900, are still reviewing the new contract

document to make sure the language matches what both sides agreed to during negotiations last year. The public document will likely be ready for public perusal some time in early March. The new deal comes with 7.5 per cent in pay increases spread over five years.

Loss of faith in Clark began before she spoke of her faith

T

HERE IS NO DOUBT I’M a flawed person. However, that is not the reason I am critical of Premier Christy Clark. Splitting hairs, it could be argued criticism is not the same as insults or questioning her integrity — but I’m pretty sure she equates anything that does not affirm her own PR spin as insulting. Likewise, I do not need to attend church to find a place to remind me to be kind and to forgive, as Clark observed in the February issue of the Anglican Journal. There are many places I can go to remind myself of the need for compassion, including virtually every social agency in Kamloops that labours with ever-decreasing support from Clark and her government to care for the marginalized, the hungry, the needy and the poor — including the working poor who try to care for themselves and their families on this province’s minimum wage. I do not believe, as Clark asserts in the article, that verbal slings and arrow are “part of the nature of politics” and I am stunned at the hypocrisy of her cloaking herself in her Anglican faith just months after her party ran an election campaign replete with vitriol and venom in every advertisement and photo-op. The reason I remain critical of Clark is how low she allowed her government to sink — again — as it did everything it could to provoke the province’s teachers into a strike in 2012, as noted by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Susan

DALE BASS Street LEVEL Griffin in a ruling issued this month on an ongoing dispute between teachers and Clark’s government. Griffin must have a pretty good handle on law and logic to be appointed to the B.C. Supreme Court in 2008, enough that she felt confident, by the 11th sentence of the summary of her ruling, to write: “The Court has concluded that the government did not negotiate in good faith with the union after the Bill 28 Decision. One of the problems was that the government representatives were pre-occupied by 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.” By paragraph 368 — this is a lengthy, detailed ruling — Griffin again notes: “From the start of its post-Bill 28 negotiation with the BCTF, the government had a strategy in mind that it would be to its benefit

if negotiations failed and if collective bargaining resulted in a strike and impasse. This would give it the opportunity to pass legislation which would address the repercussions of the Bill 28 Decision and, at the same time, pass legislation imposing a new collective agreement with net-zero compensation.” The government’s chief negotiator testified to these facts before Griffin and, yet, Clark insists it just isn’t true. This is why I remain critical of her — because I no longer believe a word she speaks. This loss of faith started when she was elected, grew when she laughed abut running a red light with her son in the car and accelerated when she spent millions of our dollars on the unnecessary B.C. Jobs Plan advertising campaign, spent a few million more on a Bollywood party in Vancouver, decided apologizing to ethnic communities for sins of the past was a darn good way to win their votes and saw absolutely nothing wrong with simply ignoring legally binding collective agreements with the people who work in the public employ. Yes, I’m flawed — but that doesn’t make me stupid. There is something very wrong with our provincial government and our premier, something that all the smiling and handshaking and invoking of her family’s religion won’t change. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Compensation for her injuries and losses is assessed at close to $800,000. ICBC denies the claim and a decision released by the court on Feb. 3 affirms ICBC’s denial. The injustice is compelling and it made headlines, but those headlines failed to identify the true source of the problem that denied this lady fair compensated — a failure in legislative drafting. ICBC liability insurance doesn’t come from a traditional insurance policy. It is a creature of legislation. When we buy liability insurance from ICBC, we are not purchasing a policy drafted by the insurance company, we are purchasing a set of protections drafted by our provincial government. Had the exact same words been contained within an insurance policy, the result might well have been different because the court follows different rules when interpreting insurance policies than they follow when interpreting legislation. Our “legislated” insurance policy contains a separate provision specifically allowing innocent victims, not in a vehicle, to recover against a passenger of the vehicle who causes a crash. Had it been a pedestrian who had been injured, he or she would have received compensation from ICBC. By creating this specific protection for non-occupants, those who drafted the legislation excluded occupants from coverage. Had they left that provision out, both occupants and non-occupants would be covered if a passenger causes a crash. The sooner the legislation is amended, the sooner designative drivers can feel protected by the ability to claim fair compensation if injured as a result of their drunk passenger causing the vehicle to crash.

Be patient, please! Editor: Alarmist innuendo and puttingthe-cart-before-the-horse-type rhetoric does not serve the B.C. environmental process well. We have B.C.’s environmental assessment office and the ministries of Health and Environment all answering to required mandates of the Interior Health Authority. Surely that’s enough environmental protection — with the built-in measures — to exercise patience. After all, not even KGHM is aware of the environmental reviews at this point. It’s been a rather lengthy process and, no doubt, very thorough. Anyone can go on and on with plausible “what if?” speculative and unproven scenarios, not regarded as scientific, nor provable environmental evidence — but to what end? Wouldn’t the greater good be served to exercise common sense and patience? It just so happens the specific environmental professionals best qualified to report their findings work for said ministries. I applaud anyone within Kamloops’ 90,000-plus population who, like myself, are awaiting the results.

Editor: I think most Canadians will agree the last budget cuts made are those affecting veterans’ benefits. One thing a recent poll showed was Canadians favour privatizing a number of money pits, such as the CBC, Via Rail and Canada Post. Private industry could turn all these corporations into profitable enterprises. Billions of dollars in savings could be appropriated to important programs, such as veterans’ services.

able; however, our provincial government doesn’t appear to see it as a priority. Surprisingly, the throne speech delivered last week makes no mention of any plans to change the legislation. Until required changes are made, all communities in the province remain vulnerable to the ambitions of mining companies. Several Kamloops-based organizations and a network of concerned citizens recently sent a letter to all provincial MLAs, providing them with background information and calling on them to make necessary changes to the act. We hope the provincial government recognizes the importance of this issue and acts accordingly. We encourage B.C. citizens to become familiar with the document to become informed about the Mineral Tenure Act and recommended changes. We invite Kamloops citizens to become fully informed about the health and environmental harm that could result from an open-pit mine like the one being proposed by KGHM Ajax. Local residents must have a voice about mining activity being considered in their territory. We urge people to support efforts by MLA Todd Stone and MLA Terry Lake to address this important concern in their role as our representatives in the legislature.

Time to modernize Act

Editor: Whether one is in favour of or opposed to the KGHM Ajax mine proposal, most would agree local populations must have a meaningful part in deciding if, when and how resources are extracted from their territory. Although the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed mine continue to be debated, the fact remains that present legislation prevents citizens from having any influence over this important issue. The Mineral Tenure Act must be modernized. Other jurisdictions throughout Canada and the world recognize the importance of involving local populations in decisions that could have an impact on their health and environment, but B.C. laws allow the interests of mining companies to take precedence over all other interests. Last fall, the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) passed a resolution calling on the provincial government to make changes to the Act. Around the same time, West Coast Environmental Law, in collaboration with the Fair Mining Collaborative, published a report: Modernizing BC’s Free Entry Mining Laws for a Vibrant, Sustainable Mining Sector. This document presents best practices adopted by other jurisdictions and offers recommendations how to change the act. Modernizing the Act is in the interests of all British Columbians and a blueprint for making the necessary changes is avail-

Shooter targeted Toyota dealership Kamloops RCMP are investigating gunshots that damaged four vehicles at the Kamloops Toyota dealership on Cariboo Drive in Sahali on Monday, Feb. 17. Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said a security guard in the

area called police after hearing a series of gunshots at about 5:15 a.m. Officers, a police dog and forensic-identification specialists searched the area and recovered bullets on the edge of the embankment of

Hillside Drive behind the dealership. Police have asked people who may have seen anything suspicious in the area at that time of day to call them at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Victim in highway crash is woman from Mara The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a woman who died in a traffic accident near Chase on Feb. 10. The victim is Carley Rosaline Kennedy, 27, of Mara, a small community in the Shuswap. Kennedy was the driver and sole occupant of a car that was in collision with a pickup truck on Highway 1 in the Hoffman’s Bluff area about 11 kilometres west of Chase just before

noon on Feb. 10. Road conditions were noted to be icy at the time and Kennedy died at the scene of the collision. The BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the incident, though it is known Kennedy’s vehicle had all-season tires, not winter treads. The crash scene is in the same general area of an accident that claimed two lives less than

two weeks previous. On Jan. 31, on Highway 1 about two kilometres west of Chase, two men from Ontario — 59-year-old Mehmed Fazlic and 43-year-old Slobodan Katic — died when their eastbound semi-truck collided with a westbound rig. Investigators have determined Fazlic was behind the wheel at the time of the collision, while Katic was in the rig’s sleeping compartment.

Avalanche danger shuts down various highways Travelling to and from Kamloops this week has been a nightmare for drivers as Old Man Winter continues to plague the mountain passes and deepest canyon routes. The Coquihalla Highway remained closed in both directions between Hope and Merritt as of KTW press deadline on Wednesday, Feb. 19. Avalanche-control work extended into the afternoon as crews attempted to make the route safe as eight metres of snow hang on the mountains above. East of Kamloops yesterday, Highway 1 was closed for much of the day in various sections as

the avalanche threat was deemed too great. Stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway west of Revelstoke and east and west of Golden were also impacted. Meanwhile, those who chose to head to the Coast via Highway 1 through the Fraser Canyon encountered a several-hours delay on Tuesday, Feb. 18, due to wintery road conditions that closed the route.

Cavers will defend council seat By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Add another Kamloops city councillor to the list of those planning to seek re-election in November’s civic election. Donovan Cavers held a press conference on Tuesday, Feb. 18, to confirm his name will be on the ballot this fall. “I am running in the November election,” Cavers said. “I just wanted to clarify because I heard from multiple people that there was word out in the community that I may or may not be running.” A few weeks ago, the firstterm councillor told KTW he was still pondering his political future, but would likely seek reelection. At the time, Cavers said some of his reluctance was due to the extra media attention paid to him as a city councillor. “I do have pretty thick skin, but it’s kind of hard sometimes because you see people and it’s like, ‘Oh, did that person read

the newspaper this morning?’” he said at the time. “And it’s pretty tough to have any sort of decent intimate relationships.” Cavers said he wants to use a second term at city hall to continue his push for more local transit and to focus on smallbusiness needs. He said he’s pleased with council’s record over the term so far and doesn’t agree with critics who say council has accomplished little since the 2011 election. “I think, as a whole, council’s doing fairly well,” he said. Cavers joins a growing list of familiar names in the race to return to city hall. Councillors Arjun Singh, Tina Lange, Ken Christian, Marg Spina, Pat Wallace and Mayor Peter Milobar have all pledged to run again. Councillors Nelly Dever and Nancy Bepple said they want to run, but aren’t yet able to commit 100 per cent to seeking reelection.

Also in the mix is Dieter Dudy, the last-minute candidate who lost the mayoral race to Milobar in 2011 by less than 250 votes. Dudy has not decided whether he will seek a seat on council or take another run at the mayorship, but told KTW he should have a final decision made by April. “I’ll be really honest — I really want a seat at that table,” he said. “And one of those things I have to give consideration to is I either have a one-off or I have a chance at eight seats.” Dudy, who lives in Westsyde, said he wants to give back to the community and provide North Kamloops with more representation on council. “I think I can bring some good, solid ideas to the table,” he said. “I think I represent common sense. I’ve been told before that I tend to bring reason to a meeting and I think that’s something I can add to council.”

TCC tops $3-million in revenue, but visits are down Kamloops’ Tournament Capital Centre cracked the $3-million mark in revenue in 2013, but a drop in the number of visitors and the centre’s costrecovery rate has some on city council concerned. According to an end-of-year report from the city’s parks, recreation and cultural-services department, the TCC brought in just over $3 million in revenue and recovered 78 per cent of its costs, compared to 83 per cent in 2012. Visitor numbers also dropped below the onemillion mark in 2013, with 992,000 people coming through the doors, compared to 1.1-million in 2012.

Parks director Byron McCorkell said he’s not concerned about the overall visitor numbers because the drop is mainly attributable to the centre hosting fewer large events last year. He said the number of member visits, which increased, is more important. McCorkell said increases in BC Hydro costs are behind the lower cost-recovery number for the year. He said the city got hit with an extra $55,000 in electricity bills for the centre and expects to continue to see those bills climb as higher rates come into place.

Should heritage and arts merge? Members of the city’s heritage commission are raising the alarm about plans to merge their organization with the city’s citizen committee on arts. Coun. Donovan Cavers, council’s representative with the commission, said members are “very uncomfortable” with the plan, which council agreed to in December. Both the arts and heritage commissions have struggled to attract enough volunteers and to get enough of those volunteers to attend meetings to obtain a quorum. Heritage commission chairman Andrew Yarmie acknowledged the difficulty, but said since news of the merger broke, he’s hearing from more

and more people who are willing to volunteer for the committees in their current, separate states. “We have a long history of being a heritage commission and we don’t want to see that just evaporate,” he said, noting some members of his group are concerned the merger will make the scope of their work too broad, resulting in large agendas and long meetings. “We’re relying on volunteers to do everything,” he said. “They might not want to be there for three hour meetings.” Terms of reference for the merged group have yet to be drafted and will come back to council at a later date.

Victim had testified against accused By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Before Sandy Charlie vanished on Christmas Eve 1999, he had testified in an assault trial of the man now charged with killing him. Rob Smith is standing trial in B.C. Supreme Court on one count each of manslaughter and interference with a dead body. The body of Charlie, 48, was unearthed accidentally in 2011 by an excavator doing work outside a Lytton SANDY home. CHARLIE Smith was arrested in August 2012 at the conclusion of a four-month RCMP Mr. Big sting. In a Kamloops courtroom on Wednesday, Feb. 19, a jury watched an hourlong video recording of Smith’s 2007 interview with RCMP cold-case homicide detectives. The interview, which

took place at a police station in Abbotsford, where Smith was living at the time, included pointed accusations by RCMP Cpl. Ian MacLellan about what happened to Charlie. “I just told you, I don’t know — he disappeared,” Smith said. “No, I don’t know anything about the disappearance. And, yes, all of us were concerned. He was a good friend of ours.” MacLellan told Smith repeatedly that a number of Lytton residents had told police he and Charlie fought the night of Charlie’s disappearance. “Rob, I think you know where Sandy Charlie is,” MacLellan said. “And I don’t,” Smith replied. “Whoever you talked to, they better get their story straight.” In the interview, Smith told MacLellan he and Charlie had been drinking buddies in Lytton prior to the disappearance. MacLellan later pressed Smith on a previous incident — in

which Charlie was a witness in a domesticassault case involving Smith and his former girlfriend, Gloria Oates — and whether it was enough to cause a physical altercation. “Of course not,” Smith replied. “We went to court and it was done and done.” MacLellan also asked Smith about Nolan Cleghorn — Charlie’s son, who died while searching for his father a month after his disappearance — which brought some of Charlie’s family members seated in the courtroom to tears. In the interview, Smith acknowledged

having heard about Cleghorn’s death. At the time of the interview, court has heard, Smith was a suspect in Charlie’s disappearance, but investigators did not have sufficient evidence to make an arrest. That changed when Charlie’s body was found on Oates’ property in 2011. Court has previously heard Oates offered information about the incident to police in 2005, when the investigation was at a standstill. The trial is slated to last three weeks. Oates is expected to take the stand today (Feb. 20).

City to look at easing downtown tax restrictions By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The city of Kamloops will look at allowing more housing types to qualify for its downtown-revitalization tax breaks, but CAO David Trawin is warning that the program’s cost is already high enough to give some on council sticker shock. Council agreed to look at loosening its restrictions after a request from the Kamloops United Church, which wants the 10-year tax-exempt status for its project at 429 St. Paul Street. Mayor Peter Milobar did not take part in the discussion because several members of his family are closely involved in the church’s effort. The project is an affordablepurchase model, targeting buyers who may have money for monthly mortgage payments but cannot afford a 10 per cent down payment. Instead, the church will provide the down payment, which must be paid back interest free when the units are resold. Project spokeswoman Maryann Milobar said the tax exemption would make the units even more attainable for lowerincome buyers. “It wouldn’t be an asset to the church, but it certainly would be to people that were purchasing the units,” said Milobar.

SALE O ON N FFROM ROM FEB. 220-233

Decision comes after request from Kamloops United Church DOWNTOWN EXEMPTIONS HOW THEY WORK: Right now, new buildings in the downtown core are eligible for 10 years of tax exemption if they are hotels, motels or public-parking structures, or if they contain at least 50 per cent residential rental units. Upgrades to existing buildings also qualify if the city believes they improve the appearance of the downtown and meet a cost threshold. The Kamloops United Church’s residential project at 429 St. Paul St. does not qualify under the current bylaw.

“It might qualify some people at a bank that wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford their first mortgage.” Under the current bylaw, the tax break can only go to new buildings that will become hotels, motels, public parking structures or contain 50 per cent rental units. Coun. Marg Spina said she’d be willing to consider a tax break if the church agreed to provide some rental housing in perpetuity, but didn’t want to see the exemption opened up otherwise.

If you have sore feet...

Coun. Pat Wallace said she doesn’t want to set new precedents for tax breaks or give the church a deal council hasn’t given other developers. The church also asked for a break on development-cost charges for the project, which council declined to consider. Council will review the tax exemption criteria further at a workshop session in May. At that time, Trawin said city staff will also have added up just what the city’s current exemptions are costing each year. “Those revitalization numbers are starting to add up in the chequebook and I think council might be a little bit surprised at what those numbers are,” he said. Trawin wouldn’t comment on how much the city is giving up in tax revenue each year, but pointed out the $25-million Sandman Signature Hotel on Lorne Street is one property covered by the exemption. By May, construction could be underway on St. Paul Street as well. Milobar said the church hopes to meet its pre-sale requirements in time for an April construction start. 101- 929 LAVAL CRESCENT, KAMLOOPS

Judge: Mandatory minimums violation of rights CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — A British Columbia provincial court judge has ruled that a oneyear mandatory minimum sentence for drug trafficking recently introduced by the federal government is a violation of the Charter of Rights and declared it “of no force and effect.’’ Judge Joseph Galati instead sentenced Joseph Ryan Lloyd on Wednesday, Feb. 19, to 191 days behind bars, saying the 25-year-old from Alberta was a low-level dealer selling drugs to support his own addiction. “Provincial court judges in the City of Vancouver deal

constantly with drug addicts who resort to crime to feed their addictions,’’ Galati wrote in a decision last month on an application in the case. Lloyd was convicted in September of three counts of possessing crack, methamphetamine and heroin for the purpose of trafficking. He has 21 prior convictions, including fraud or forgery offences, thefts, assault, possession of a prohibited weapon and — most significantly — a 2012 trafficking charge. With a credit for time served prior to sentencing, Lloyd spent 27 days behind bars for that offence and got out of prison about a month

before his arrest in the current case, the judge noted in January. Lloyd also committed five more offences while on bail for the latest trafficking charge. As a result, he has been in custody since May 2013. Under the Conservatives’ new tough-on-crime measures, anyone convicted of trafficking who has been convicted for a similar offence in the preceding 10 years faces a minimum sentence of one year in jail. Lloyd’s lawyer, David Fai, argued the mandatory minimum violates his charter rights. “In this neighbourhood [the Downtown

Eastside] where we are — and I don’t know what the percentages are — but there’s a lot of people here who have prior convictions in the last 10 years that are addicts, that are sharing with their friends or selling small amounts to support their addiction,’’ Fai said. “They would all be sent to jail for a minimum of one year under this legislation.’’ In the earlier written decision, Galati acknowledged Parliament’s right to fashion a drug sentencing regime “which stresses denunciation and deterrence over other sentencing objectives . . .” The Vancouver

judge even agreed that a one-year sentence “is not grossly disproportionate’’ for Lloyd. But, he described Lloyd as a low-level dealer, trafficking to support his own addiction. “This is a situation which happens daily in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver and is in no way a far-fetched or extreme scenario,’’ the judge wrote in January. Fai said the federal government brought in the law for purely political reasons. “They get to say they are tough on crime and they are making you safer. But, in reality, the crime rate is dropping. Canada is a pretty safe place already,’’ he said.

School-bus, semi crash sends students to hospital RIVER CITY NISSAN CANADIAN PRESS

BEAVERLODGE, ALTA. — Several students are recovering from injuries after their school bus collided with a semi truck in northern Alberta. Eleven students were going home from schools in Grande Prairie and Beaverlodge when the crash happened on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at a rural intersection. Most went to area hospitals with injuries ranging from cuts to broken bones. School officials say two children were airlifted to an Edmonton hospital and are in stable condition. The bus driver and truck driver were not seriously hurt. The RCMP continues to investigate the cause of the crash. “I think it was a pretty scary event for the children on the bus,’’ said Cpl. Roy Kennedy, who had two nieces and a nephew on board. “This one kind of hit

close to home . . . “They did get pretty banged up and had to receive some stitches.’’ Sheldon Rowe, superintendent of the Peace Wapiti public school division, said students on the bus ranged in ages and went to four different schools in the area. Some have since been released from hospital. Rowe said the bus driver is a caring and capable woman with years of experience behind the wheel, noting she is quite upset about the crash. “We certainly appreciate the number of parents who inquired as to how she was doing,” Rowe said. “They know her as a friend and someone who looks after their children.’’ Kennedy said it appears the semi was travelling north on Highway 723 and had the right of way. The bus was going east on Township Road 722 and would have had a stop sign.

A Cut Above The Rest!

Wireless auction raises $5.3B CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The federal government raked in $5.27 billion in the latest wireless spectrum auction, the most Ottawa has ever received in such a sale. Industry Canada announced the biggest buyer of the 20-year licences was Rogers (TSX:RCI.B), which paid $3.29 billion for 22 licences across the country, except in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Telus (TSX:T) spent just over $1.14 billion for 30 licences, while Bell spent (TSX:BCE) $565.7 million for 31 licences. In total, the auction saw some 10 bidders participate, with eight of them winning licenses.

Videotron was the biggest buyer outside of the Big 3 telecommunications companies, spending $233.3 million. In addition to the spectrum in its home market of Quebec, Videotron also acquired licences in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia, giving it a platform for growth in Canada’s most populous province and Western Canada. “Canadians will soon benefit from a fourth wireless player in every region of the country having access to this high-quality spectrum to provide all Canadians with dependable, high-speed wireless services on the latest technologies,’’ Industry Minister James Moore said. “Canadians have been clear that they want more choice, lower prices and better service in our wireless industry.’’

The airwaves up for grabs are considered particularly valuable because they allow signals to travel farther and penetrate buildings and tunnels, where calls are often dropped. They became available after television broadcasters switched to digital signals. Ninety-seven of the 98 available licences were sold during the 108 rounds of bidding that took place over 22 business days. The previous auction in 2008 raised $4.3 billion for federal coffers and saw the addition of several new wireless companies. Another auction for wireless licences for the 2,500-megahertz band is set for April 2015.

Harper presses Obama on Keystone By Mike BlanchÀeld CANADIAN PRESS

TOLUCA, MEXICO — Prime Minister Stephen Harper will press U.S. President Barack Obama, once again, to approve TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline. The two leaders will have a bilateral meeting at the so-called Three Amigos summit in Toluca, just a few hours after Harper sat down with TransCanada offi-

cials in nearby Mexico City. Harper and Obama were to meet shortly after a judge struck down a Nebraska law that allowed the pipeline to proceed through the state, a ruling that will undoubtedly lead to even further delays for the controversial project. Keystone XL remains a major irritant between the U.S. and Canada given the approval process south of the border has

dragged on for several years under Obama. Neither leader had been expected to deviate from their stated positions on the pipeline during the Three Amigos summit. After Harper was greeted warmly by President Enrique Pena Nieto as he arrived for the trilateral summit, the three world leaders strolled through the Cosmo Vital Jardin Botanico, an enormous Toluca greenhouse

renowned for its spectacular stained glass windows. Prior to the summit, Obama praised the relationship between the U.S., Canada and Mexico. He said the summit gives the three countries the opportunity to build on the progress that’s already been made to ensure North America is the most competitive region in the world. During Harper’s brief photo-op with

TransCanada leaders, the word “Keystone’’ was never uttered. But, Harper spoke briefly of the opportunities for Canadian firms in the Mexico’s resources sector, which has recently been opened up to private investment.

Minister heralds new citizenship rules CANADIAN PRESS

CALGARY — Federal Citizenship Minister Chris Alexander used a ceremony in Calgary to tout his government’s plans to tighten rules for those who want to become Canadians and to strip citizenship from dual nationals who engage in terrorism. Alexander told 51 new Canadians the first overhaul of the Citizenship Act in 36 years is meant to strengthen the value of a Canadian passport and to improve the efficiency of how citizenship is acquired. He said the new rules will clamp down on what he called “Canadians of convenience” by making it harder to obtain citizenship. Permanent residents will have to maintain a physical presence in Canada for four out of six years before applying for citizenship, compared with the previous requirement of three out of four years.

CHRIS ALEXANDER: Clamping down on ‘Canadians of convenience.’

Alexander said permanent residents who are members of the Canadian Armed Forces will have a fast track to citizenship. As well, citizenship will be revoked from dual nationals who are members of groups engaged in an armed conflict with Canada or convicted of terrorism, high treason or spying. “If you’re a dual citizen — and we expect this will only ever apply to an extremely lower number of people — or

a permanent resident convicted of terrorism, high treason, treason or spying offences, then you will forfeit your right to hold Canadian citizenship,’’ Alexander said. “We want to send a strong message that people who commit acts against Canada will not . . . continue to enjoy the privilege of calling themselves Canadian citizens.’’ As eligibility requirements increase, the government has indicated it would simultaneously speed up processing times for applications by streamlining decision-making. It’s hoped the change will help drastically cut a backlog of citizenship applications, which currently sit at more than 320,000 files. Processing times stretch to as much as 36 months. By 2015-2016, the government said it hopes to process successful applications in less than a year.

Premier Clark brushes aside LNG doubts By James Keller

Premier Christy Clark insists natural-gas revenue could start flowing by 2017.

CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — British Columbia Premier Christy Clark insisted on Wednesday, Feb. 19, that it’s still possible her muchhyped vision for liquefied natural gas could start bringing in cash in three years’ time, a day after her own finance minister appeared to temper those expectations. Clark won last year’s provincial election in large part on a promise to foster a trillion-dollar LNG industry she said could create more than 100,000 jobs and wipe out B.C.’s debt. The province would start collecting LNG revenues, Clark told voters, by 2017. But, there have been doubts about whether that goal is realistic — and even Finance Minister Mike de Jong said this week he doesn’t expect LNG revenues for at least three to five years. Clark said she remains optimistic. “I’m still hopeful that we can get there,’’ the premier said after a speech in Vancouver. “It depends on when the private-sector companies, the proponents, get to their final investment decision.’’ Some details about

how the province will tax and regulate the industry, originally expected last year, were released in this week’s provincial budget, though they have yet to be finalized. Clark has said there are 10 potential projects under consideration, but none of the prospective operators has made a final decision. Even so, Clark brushed aside the suggestion her LNG plans are lagging behind. She said some proponents could make their final decisions by 2016. “In that case, there could be revenue that starts flowing by 2017,’’ said Clark. “There’s a range of different proposals out there and not all of them are starting from scratch.’’ Clark has staked her

political legacy on the success of the LNG industry, which she has cast as a once-in-ageneration opportunity on the level of the moon landing. She even included a nod to U.S. president John F. Kennedy, who launched America headlong into the 1960s space race, in her government’s most-recent throne speech. Zoher Meratla, a B.C.-based expert in the LNG industry, warned the province isn’t moving nearly fast enough to capitalize on the global demand for the resource. “It is way behind schedule,’’ Meratla said in an interview. “I don’t see why it has taken so long.’’ Meratla, who was briefly quoted in the B.C. Liberals’ official campaign platform last

year, said there is no chance the province will see any LNG revenues three years from now. “It’s not possible because none of the LNG plants has any financial investment,’’ he said. “It takes at least four years to build an LNG plant and none of the plants is at a financial investment decision.’’ The Liberal government’s publicly stated goal is to have at least three LNG terminals operating by 2020. On budget day, the province’s finance minister admitted the goal was “lofty,’’ but insisted it was still within reach. Meratla disagrees. “I think those were optimistic numbers,’’ he said. “I’m not criticizing the government because there was a lot of interest in British Columbia by proponents to set anchor. But, now the dust has settled . . . I see probably by 2020, maybe two, possibly, but we’ll have to move soon.’’ The LGN tax plan released this week contemplates a two-tier tax structure that would begin at 1.5 per cent as LNG terminals begin production.

This year, we have outstanding speakers that will promote the interests of mining, earth sciences and mineral exploration. The lectures are at TRU Mountain Room (3rd Floor of the Campus Activity Centre) and start at 7:00 pm and are free to attend. The next talk will be held on:

That would be followed by secondtier tax, which could increase to seven per cent once a plant is running and capital costs have been deducted. However, even those details could change before legislation is released this fall. This week’s budget also included $29 million to support development of the liquefied natural-gas industry, as well as $9 million for environmental assessments for LNG plants, pipelines and other major resource projects. The 2014-2015 budget is projected to be balanced, with a surplus of $184 million, but few new spending announcements.

Trudeau woos Quebecers, solicits province’s vote CANADIAN PRESS

QUEBEC CITY — Justin Trudeau had a message for Quebecers on Wednesday, Feb. 19 — his Liberals are the only party capable of seriously offering them a place at the heart of government. Trudeau said Quebecers have not really been represented in government in recent years because of the strength of the Bloc Quebecois and the surge of the NDP at the

last election. The federal Liberal leader was in Quebec City for a caucus meeting ahead of a four-day party meeting in Montreal, which begins today (Feb. 20). Trudeau said he hopes the gathering will help persuade voters to come to the Liberals, who now hold eight of the 75 seats in Quebec. “The party has an enormous challenge ahead of it _ and not

just in Quebec,’’ he said. “We’re going to have to show that we can go from about 30 MPs to forming a government on election night.’’ Trudeau said he wants to orient the policy of the party to the benefit of the middle class but he did not give any specifics. He indicated he won’t be revealing the details of the Liberal plan until the next election, which will be held in 2015.

A new study suggests at least one reason bears in Banff National Park are crossing the Trans-Canada Highway is to find mates — vindication for a series of wildlife crossings installed by Parks Canada on the busy route to try to keep bears on either side of it genetically linked. “It is clear that male and female individuals using crossings structures are successfully migrating, breeding and moving genes across the roadway,’’ says the paper published this week in the Proceedings of the Royal Society, Britain’s national science academy. The Trans-Canada Highway cuts through the heart of Banff National Park. For decades, scientists have been concerned Canada’s busiest eastwest road link was isolating grizzly and black bear populations on either side of it — especially after high wire fences were built along the road to reduce wildlife traffic deaths. So between 1982 and 1997, more than two dozen underground and overhead crossings were built to allow wildlife to move north-south. In 2006, Montana State University ecologist Mike Sawaya began a three-year research project to see if the crossings were working. After analyzing DNA from nearly 10,000 hair samples collected from strategically placed strips of barbed wire, Sawaya says they are. Last summer, he published research proving that bears were using the crossings. His latest paper suggests they’re crossing for more than a patch of tasty berries. “We found enough movement and migration across the highway to infer that, yes, the crossing structures are allowing the transfer of genes.’’ Sawaya said that grizzlies on either side

of the road had been slowly becoming more genetically distinct from each other, although the effect wasn’t pro-

nounced in black bears. DNA analysis of the hair samples shows the two ursine neighbourhoods are

gradually coming back together again. “The grizzly bear population was fragmented and we’re

starting to see it be restored,’’ said Sawaya. “If the crossings continue to work the way they are, I think we’re

going to see the dissolution of that genetic structure over time.’’ The research team documented how indi-

vidual bears were able to mate with a number of different females and wound up with offspring on both sides.

Money Matters: Pension income splitting

S

POUSES ARE allowed to split qualified retirement income with their spouse. This can result in a reduction of family taxes and also can minimize the impact on income-tested tax credits and benefits. If you have a spouse in a lower tax bracket, you and your spouse can elect to have up to 50 per cent of eligible income transferred to the lower income spouse. Eligible income is defined as income eligible for pension income credit.

What types of income are eligible? Under age 65, only income received directly from a pension plan or received because of death of a spouse qualifies for pension income splitting. Income from other registered plans such as registered retirement income funds (RRIFs), annuities purchased with your registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) and deferred profit sharing plans are only eligible if you are age 65 or older. Government plans such as Canada/ Quebec Pension Plan (CPP/ QPP) and Old Age Security (OAS) do not qualify under the federal pension income splitting rules. Generally, income from non-registered investments will also not qualify. One exception is when the income is received from a guaranteed interest contract (GIC) provided by an insurance company. A GIC from a life insurance company reports the interest accrued as annuity income which qualifies for the pension income credit at age 65. The interest element of a non-registered annuity contract — prescribed and nonprescribed — is another exception for those age 65 or older.

Income-splitting options You can split up to 50 per cent of eligible income, described above, with a spouse. Because of incometested benefits such as age credits, medical expenses and clawbacks on OAS, the optimum transfer may be less than 50 per cent. Examples below demonstrate that some analysis will be necessary each year to determine the optimal amount to split to maximize the tax reduction and minimize the impact on income tested tax credits and benefits. .

Canada/Quebec pension plans Although not part of the federal initiative with respect to pension income splitting, these government plans already allow spouses who are at least 60 years of age to share up to 50 per cent of the benefits earned while you were living together.

Spousal RRSPs Contributing to a spousal RRSP can also result in tax savings. Under these rules, RRSP and RRIF income can only be split at age 65 or older. However, spousal RRSPs provide income splitting at any age and are not restricted to 50 per cent. Also, if your spouse is younger, the income can be delayed until the year after your spouse reaches the of age 71.

Ideal candidates • Those age 65 or who are currently receiving income directly from a pension plan. • Those who have a spouse in a lower tax bracket.

Will you have a retirement you’ll enjoy? Enjoying retirement means doing what you really want and not worrying about essential expenses, such as housing, food, and medical costs.

Ukraine: Yanukovych’s last stand?

W

HEN A government announces it is going to launch an “anti-terror operation,” that generally means it has decided to kill some people. That was what the police said on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6 p.m. local time in Kiev as they launched their assault on protesters who have occupied the main square of the Ukrainian capital for 11 weeks — and, sure enough, people started to die. Other people had already died in clashes elsewhere in Kiev on Tuesday, including some policemen, and the more excitable observers have started speculating about the forcible imposition of a police state in Ukraine — or even civil war. But, the likeliest outcome is that the president will be forced out without a civil war. President Viktor Yanukovych has not just had a bad two months, he has had a bad three years. He won the 2010 election narrowly, but fairly, and, ever since, he has been trying to straddle the gap between Russia and the European Union. Both Moscow and Brussels have been courting Ukraine with trade-and-aid deals and neither one is willing to let Yanukovych have it both ways. Yet if he opted for either one, half the country was going to condemn him, for Ukrainians are split almost 50/50

between those (mostly Ukrainian-speakers in the west of the country) who want closer ties with the European Union and those (mostly Russian-speakers in the east and south) who want stronger links with Russia. Finally, in late November, Yanukovych came down off the fence and chose Russia. He did so because Russian President Vladimir Putin was offering a massive financial bailout if Yanukovych joined Moscow’s new “Eurasian Union” — and threatening to turn off the gas that keeps Ukraine’s economy functioning if he did not. Yanukovych also did it because his own voters are mostly Russian-speakers in the east. But, he didn’t do it happily because he knew there would be a backlash. What he didn’t reckon with is the strength and duration of the protests and the fact they would expand beyond

the simple Brussels-orMoscow issue to take in the massive corruption that has flourished under his government. (Yanukovych’s son Oleksandr, a dentist by training, has become one of the country’s richest men in just three years.) Now Yanukovych’s back is against the wall. For the first two months of the confrontation, protests were mostly peaceful, the riot police were kept on a short leash most of the time (although five people were killed) and you would have taken an even-money bet Yanukovych could ride it out. Then he made the error of passing severe anti-protest laws, some of the protesters (especially on the nationalist right) started to use violence and he began to retreat. Within a week, Yanukovych was repealing his new laws in parliament and accepting the resignation of his hard-line prime minister. Then he was offering the opposition leaders places in a new cabinet (they refused) and granting amnesty to protesters who faced criminal charges. Then he proposed constitutional reforms that would reduce the power of the president — but, on Tuesday, he postponed the debate on those reforms

in parliament. That was when the killing started — in front of the parliament, not on Euromeydan, the main square protesters have held since late November — between the right-wing nationalists of Praviy Sektor and a pro-government crowd imported from eastern Ukraine. The protesters claim the government sent agent provocateurs into their crowd to start the violence and the police certainly fought alongside Yanukovych’s supporters in the street battles there. More than a dozen people were killed, including six police officers, but the fighting in front of parliament was over by mid-afternoon. It might have stopped there, but Yanukovych decided to use this calamity as an excuse to clear Euromeydan by force, although there had been no fighting there. That was when the police announced they were launching an “anti-terror operation” and the main assault began at about six in the evening. By morning, the death toll was at least 25 and protesters still held most of the square. Even if they subsequently lose control of the Euromeydan, they will not give up now. What is happening in Ukraine is no longer

a non-violent protest against a particular government policy. It is a revolution in which both sides are starting to see violence as legitimate — and Yanukovych’s problem is that most people in the capital, though they don’t approve of the violence, support the other side. Yanukovych now has a lot of blood on his hands. If he loses this battle, he will end up in jail or in exile. Protesters are seizing control of city centres in western Ukraine, while Yanukovych’s supporters in the east and south are not lifting a finger to help him. And the country’s most powerful oligarch (some would say king-maker), Rinat Akhmetov, has just declared there are “no circumstances that would justify the use of force against peaceful citizens.” Yanukovych has run out of options. It is hard to see him staying in office unless he turns Ukraine into a full-scale police state and it’s not easy to see how he could make that stick. The opposition is probably going to win. Then they’ll have to figure out what they want, apart from an end to Yanukovych. gwynnedyer.com

In early December, protesters in Kiev offered roses to police. This week, violence has claimed at least 25 lives.

Although I am anxious — with a special tendency to fear the sky may fall — it’s usually something small that makes it feel like the plaster will hold.

Another time, a reader mailed a Mennonite cookbook she thought I’d like to have. Lately, however, it’s taking more than a few good moments every day, not only to just dispel the clouds of a recent spate of gloom, but to hold the crumbling sky up where it belongs.

College growing minds and mental illness

O

H GEE, young people — in the prime of their physical health, embarking on their adult journey having grand adventures while discovering themselves and a host of new friends — what on earth could they have to worry about? And yet, it is happening on campuses, not just in B.C. or Canada, but all over North America. Students are reporting symptoms of mental illness and looking for help in large numbers — and the pace is increasing. Health and education officials in Alberta were so concerned about this trend last year that they conducted a student survey in various institutions. They found 55 per cent of students had felt overwhelming anxiety in the past year, while another eight per cent said they had seriously considered suicide. If these numbers have failed to get your attention, try this one: 1.4 per cent of surveyed students had made a suicide attempt — more than 800 students from that survey sample. Just as it is difficult to analyze reasons for mental illness patterns in society at large, it is equally difficult on campus. There are a lot of theories and precious few known causes. Some experts say the university pattern for mental illness is just like the community at large and, as prejudice reduces about mental illness, it is normal for more people to come forward and talk about it. Others indicate today’s young people lack coping skills, largely due to a phenomenon known as helicopter parents. These are parents who hover over their kids and protect them from every possible danger or stress. When these kids leave the nest, they

cannot cope and do not have their built-in safety net with them. There are probably elements of truth to both of these perspectives, but those who work in the mental health field know it’s much more. Financial pressures, relationship issues, new academic pressures, high expectations, competing interests, as well as pressure imposed from within and outside the student, all impose a price on mental health. Combine this with irregular or poor diet and often an increase in alcohol consumption — a depressant — and there should be no surprise symptoms of mental illness increase. Rather than fret out causes, it’s more helpful to address the current issue and prevent future ones with some common sense, compassion and practical help. Watch for signs in your kids that a change is happening. If they are attending school on the other side of the country, you can sense changes in their voice, the frequency of contact, the choice of language and more. Remember, not all change means mental illness — but notice it and stay tuned. Changes in social situations and behaviour can be also be a strong indicator. A social person who becomes reclusive or vice-versa can be a warning sign. Students in this age group are strongly motivated and influenced by peers and students need to be engaged in watching over and supporting others who show signs of distress. When you are in a fun mode, it is difficult to address the killjoy person on the dorm floor or in the class, and yet it is vital. Tell us your thoughts about the growing issue

of mental illness on campus — or in general — by writing us at Kamloops@cmha. bc.ca and by following us on Twitter @ CMHAKamloops. We love to hear from you.

SCOBIE JUDITH ISOBEL (nee GARDNER) On February 12, 2014 Judy passed away peacefully with her husband Gary by her side after a year long battle with brain cancer. Judy and Gary enjoyed 24 years together and made many happy memories traveling and retiring to Mesa, Arizona. Some of Judy’s happiest times were during her retirement as she made so many wonderful friends and truly relaxed and enjoyed life. Judy was loved by many and will be greatly missed by her husband, Gary, her children, Stacey (Dean) and Rodney (Lucy), grandchildren, Megan and Austin and her sister, Linda (John) and brother, Doug (Regina) along with many family and friends. Judy lived a full life, she was born in Victoria, BC on November 10, 1949 and lived back and forth between Victoria and Kamloops, BC. She was very close to her sister, Linda since childhood and they were best friends. Judy married her first husband, Daryl in 1970 and they had two children together. Judy met Gary in 1990 at a Full Gospel Businessmen’s dinner and they were married on February 29, 1992. Gary and Judy lived in Kamloops until 2006 when they moved to Kelowna where they both retired and bought a place in Mesa, Arizona. Judy loved animals, especially cats, she leaves behind her sweet Micah. Her hobbies were knitting, crocheting, ceramics, sewing and stain glass artwork. In her retirement she became an avid dominoes player and loved shopping. She is fondly remembered as a very loving, non-judgemental, supportive, unassuming woman who had a sparkle in her eyes and a beautiful laugh. Judy was a woman of great faith and we can feel comfort in knowing she is in heaven. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 1:00pm at the Full Gospel Tabernacle at 1550 Tranquille Road, Kamloops, BC.

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.”

She had not seen Doug and Danny for over 2 decades. For her to be reconnected to them and their lovely family was a reminder of what she had been missing from her childhood home, Haida Gwaii. Mom was the baby of ten siblings, nine sisters and one brother, all of whom have passed away. Mom is the last of the original Rudge family. Mom was born in Sandspit Haida Gwaii June 25, 1927. Mom lived in Queen Charlotte City until her early teens when she moved to New Westminster, where she took her Nursing training at Essendale and worked at St. Mary’s Hospital. Mom met her husband Slim Ducharme and they were married in 1946. They moved to Kamloops with their two children (Patti and Cheryl) in 1963, where Mom worked in the Carousel Laundromat for 20 years. As a young teenage girl from an extremely small town on a small island she longed to move to the big city. After Dad (Slim) passed away in 1989, she was only able to travel back to Haida Gwaii on two occasions, due to her deteriorating physical health. Mom spent her final four years at the Bedford Manor assisted living complex. Mom utterly loved living there with all of her new friends and taking part in her many daily activities. Mom always spoke so very highly of the absolutely wonderful staff at the Bedford Manor. A day never went by that she wasn’t thankful for being able to live out her last years on her own under her own steam. We want to thank from the bottom of our hearts close family friend Sharon Howrie for all her help and friendship to Mom and us, as well as the professional caring staff at RIH Emergency, Laboratory departments and the staff on 3 West. Mom was an extremely strong willed and determined woman who had many trying health issues but she never stopped battling and would refuse to give up. Mom passed away in her sleep at 11:15 a.m. February 17 with her loving family by her side. Mom missed Dad so much for so long; we know she is now with her beloved Slim in a warm embrace.

We love you and will miss you Mom, Grandma, Great.

Should friends desire, donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada, #200 – 4940 Canada Way, Burnaby, BC V5G 4K6.

Mom has requested there not be a service and would greatly appreciate you considering making a donation to the Kamloops SPCA.

She is on object of beauty & strength & I stand & watch her, until at length, she is only a speck of white cloud just wheret he seas & sky meet and mingle with each other. Then someone at my side exclaims, “There, she’s gone!” Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large as she was when she left my side & just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone, there are other eyes watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout “There she comes!”.

FAITH

In religion, silence is a very common thread

A

LL the religions of the world have one thing in common. Each of them insists on one specific practice — which, they say, is actually non-negotiable. That one thing is intentional silence. In the Eastern religions, it is called meditation. In the West, it has traditionally been called contemplation. Since its inception and continuing throughout its history, contemplation has been central to the religion that came to be known

BRIAN PUIDA MITCHELL You Gotta Have FAITH as Christianity. The desert mothers and fathers practiced it. The early fathers of the church embraced it. The 14th-century devotional classic The Cloud of Unknowing described it in detail. Last, but not least, it is made abundantly clear in scripture that the person on whom the faith is based — Jesus the

Nazarene — spent many countless hours alone. What do we imagine him to have been doing during those large amounts of time? A person can reasonably doubt that he was repeating the “our father” over and over again. As meaningful as that verbal prayer can be, it relies on the power of words — and words can finally only graze the treetops. And Jesus was not one for superficiality. He invariably went deep. He did not avoid the more difficult path. What he did during his times of

silence is largely not recorded. But, it would be no surprise if he did what the Hebrew Bible asked of him: “Be still and know that I Am God”. He sat still and opened himself to the Presence of God. We are asked to do the same. If we move away from “them, there, then” to “us, here, now,” we can say that if there is one thing sorely lacking in the contemporary church (and in contemporary society in general), it is intentional silence — a silence that allows us to enter more deeply into our own selves, into our relationships with others and

into a much more tangible and immediate connection with the ultimate reality, which we call God. This Mystery, this Source, this Originating Energy is ours for the knowing. All we have to do is ask. The trick, though, is how can we come to know the fullness of that Presence? How can we open ourselves to truly deep listening? In the Christian church, we have become so conditioned to the idea of a God “out there” that we have largely forgotten the God our hearts long for is available to us within our own beings.

HEWITT WINS OLYMPIC SILVER Former Long Blade races into Kamloops history with performance at Winter Games By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

XCUSE JESSICA Hewitt if she was shaking off the cobwebs on Wednesday morning — winning Olympic silver is a partyworthy accomplishment. “We had a lot of media after our medal, then the medal presentation, and then a celebration at the Canada Olympic House,” Hewitt told KTW. “After that, I saw my family and partied with my boyfriend.” Countless hours of work paid off for the Kamloops product at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, on Tuesday, Feb. 18. Hewitt, along with Canadian teammates Valerie Maltais, Marianne St. Gelais and Marie-Eve Drolet, won silver in the women’s 3,000-metre relay. “The moment was very special,” Hewitt said. “I have worked so hard all of these years and I can finally say that I’m not only an Olympian, but a medalist.”

She becomes the second athlete from Kamloops to win an Olympic medal, with Bob Wilson having won silver at the 1956 Olympic

Summer Games in Melbourne, Australia. Wilson was on the Canadian men’s eight rowing team. At race’s end on Tuesday, it seemed South Korea had won gold, China silver and Canada bronze, with Italy having bowed out of contention when Arianna Fontana fell with 12 laps to go. China, however, was disqualified because Yang Zhou did not immediately leave the track after an exchange with a teammate. The South Koreans passed China on the final turn and finished in four minutes 9.498 seconds. Canada’s time was 4:10.641 and Italy’s was 4:14.014. At the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Korea was disqualified for impeding and the Chinese were awarded gold.

Canada has won a medal in every Olympic short track speed-skating relay since the event was introduced to the Games in 1992. The Chinese short-track team trains each summer in Kamloops at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre and at the Tournament Capital Centre.

It was really, really, really cool.” Vyse exchanged text messages with Hewitt after the race. “It was just the basic, ‘Woohoo! You did it!’ kind of thing,” Vyse said.

Terwiel, brain trainer pursue Olympic ‘flow zone’ By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Perhaps the soothing sound of Isabelle Hamptonstone’s voice will echo through the mind of Elli Terwiel, the Canadian skier standing at the starting gate, staring down her Olympic moment. Terwiel, from Sun Peaks, will represent the Maple Leaf in women’s slalom at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, on Friday, Feb. 21. For the past three years, the 24-year-old Brocklehurst secondary graduate has been working with Hamptonstone, a certified neuro-linguistic programmer and hypnotherapist who operates Brain Train International out of Kamloops and Sun Peaks. The sessions are continuing in Sochi via Skype. “Today’s training was on how to deal with distractions,” Hamptonstone said on Tuesday, Feb. 18. “Whether it be the distraction of being at the Olympics or how to deal well with other peoples’ attitudes, especially other competitors, and how to draw upon those attitudes, good or bad, and how to use them as a means of assessing how strong she feels internally.” Run 1 of the women’s slalom gets underway at 4:45 a.m on Friday. Terwiel must finish in the top 30 to advance to Round 2, which begins at 8:15 a.m.

Elli Terwiel says she is mentally prepared for her Olympic moment. KTW file photo

Isabelle Hamptonstone, who runs Brain Train International out of Kamloops and Sun Peaks, is helping Elli Terwiel prepare for the biggest race of her life. Terwiel is competing for Canada in the women’s slalom at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Round 1 of the women’s slalom will get underway at 4:45 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 21.

“I think it will feel like every other race,” Terwiel told KTW. “The only real difference here is external pressure, which I won’t be thinking about.” That is easier said than done, but Hamptonstone is confident her

client is doing more than just saying all the right things. “I was so thoroughly impressed with how grounded she is, how at ease she is and how much she’s loving being there, and she is very respectful of the opportunity,” the mental trainer said. “The key is always getting her to full focus, full confidence and full self-control. When she has all three, she has a very good flow to her skiing.” Hamptonstone has worked with the Kamloops Blazers and Canadian champion hammer thrower Jennifer Joyce, among many other athletes. She often offers this advice when the most pressure-packed

days draw near: “Check in with yourself. If there is a state of unease within you, then your unconscious mind is letting you know that there’s something for you to deal with. Anxiety is a tool for success. It’s letting you know that something wants to be addressed and needs to be sorted.” Terwiel’s mother, father, brother and boyfriend will be watching in person at the Rhosa Khutor Alpine Centre, about 50 kilometres from the Black Sea. Cahilty Lodge is hosting a viewing party in Sun Peaks. “Thank you so much for all of your support and well wishes,” Terwiel said in a message to her supporters in the

Kamloops region. “I am honoured to represent our community in Russia.” Terwiel, whose 11th-place finish at a World Cup race in Finland in November is her best result to date, is no shoo-in to advance to the second round. Reaching the podium would be a minor miracle. What she’s not expected to do will likely be the furthest thing from her mind on Friday, if Hamptonstone has done her job. “Right now, she’s mentally stronger than I’ve ever seen her before,” Hamptonstone said. “The more at ease an athlete is mentally, the easier it is for them to get into the flow zone.”

Soccer directive hurts KYSA player development

S

TARTING THIS YEAR, the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association (KYSA), in accordance with a BC Soccer directive, will not be publishing scores or keeping standings in its under-11 and under-12 divisions. This is a mistake. Here are a few of the arguments for the directive, taken from a memo sent to KYSA members: It diminishes the incentive for coaches to concentrate solely on winning; it reduces the pressures placed on young players by coaches and parents to win, to perform and to avoid making mistakes; coaches will pay more attention to giving more equal playing time to all the children on their roster, rather than playing their better players all the time; and it may reduce the verbal abuse officials receive from coaches. It appears many of the problems that led to the BC Soccer directive, which brings the organization in line with the Canadian Soccer Association’s (CSA) Long Term Player Development model, have to do with one thing — idiot coaches. At those age levels, bench bosses shouldn’t be concentrating solely on winning, their players should be seeing equal playing time and they should not be abusing officials. Agreed, but I’m not sure taking standings out of the game is going to correct the problems. (I skipped the part about pressuring players to win, perform and

MARTY HASTINGS The Tattle of Hastings avoid mistakes because I think athletes at that age should be pushed, to varying degrees based on their goals, to do each of those things). But, if you ask me, league titles and championship victories should not be taken out of the game in those age divisions. That hurts player development. Young soccer players in Canada need to know it’s OK — in fact, it’s imperative — to make winning a goal. They also need to learn about the agony of defeat in big-time matches. I’ve lost a lot of big games (see Earl Marriott Mariners vs. Semiahmoo Totems high school rugby Sandcastle Cup grudge matches, 0-2) and, believe it or not, I’ve racked up the occasional W, too. It’s impossible to understand how much an athlete can learn from each — a massive victory or a crushing defeat in a championship-deciding matchup — until you’ve been on both sides. Some of the best coaching moments are borne when the final

whistle blows — especially when games really matter, like when a league banner is on the line. How do you handle the anguish of defeat? How do you win graciously? How do you better handle the pressure next time around? There are at least a few KYSA parents who agree with me. They went so far as to unregister their children. I wouldn’t have done that, but they felt so strongly about competitiveness that they took a stand. The directive nixes the presentation of trophies and medals in those divisions. Here’s another piece of the KYSA memo: “We are concerned about how this initiative might affect our KYSA Cup entries in May. Will teams be prepared to travel great distances to come to Kamloops to participate in a “Jamboree-like format” with nothing at stake?” Good question. After speaking with a highranking member of the KYSA brass, I understand it’s simply impossible to weed out all the idiot coaches. The KYSA cannot force its parent-volunteers to go through coaching-certification programs (even if it did, I’m not sure that would keep idiot coaches off the sidelines) and, like in many minor sports, there is a dearth of people able to take control of a team.

Wolfram key in WolfPack’s strong season By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Scott Clark took a friendly jab at Josh Wolfram’s pre-season conditioning, insinuating the TRU WolfPack basketball player was a tad too husky in the summer. It was a little good-natured ribbing from the TRU WolfPack men’s basketball coach following his team’s practice on Tuesday, Feb. 18. The towering forward brushed it off, laughing with his coach and his teammates. Wolfram was heavy and unfit in the offseason before he joined the WolfPack and his coach helped him fix that. “There wasn’t many guys around during the summer, so me and coach went out for some runs,” Wolfram says. Clark is a coach known to go the extra mile to help his players, which he did quite literally when it came to Wolfram, running with the South Kam secondary graduate every Friday to get him back into playing shape. Wolfram is in his first season with the WolfPack, returning to Kamloops, his hometown, and attending TRU after two seasons

with the University of Calgary and its team, the Dinos. He took the 2012-2013 season off, focusing on school before deciding where he wanted to play basketball. The pair had to walk for part of their first outing, which Clark used to prove a point: He felt Wolfram could be a dominant player in the Canada West, but he needed to work at it. Wolfram got the message. Five weeks later, Clark could no longer keep up with the 6-foot-10 giant. “That made me happy,” Clark said. “He doesn’t need to be running with a late-40s guy. I’m a recreational athlete. He’s an elite-level athlete. That’s the point I tried to make to him.” Wolfram was a key addition for the WolfPack — Clark had tried to recruit the forward when he was a coach at Simon Fraser University, before accepting the head coach position with the WolfPack. He knew Wolfram had potential. It’s possible Wolfram has exceeded those expectations with his return to the hardcourt. He has been one of the team’s most dominant players and Clark said his charge has only scratched the surface of his abilities.

He has helped lead his hometown program to its first ever playoff berth this season, starting 19 of the team’s 22 regular-season games. He is 19th in league scoring with 13.4 points per game, fifth in rebounding (third in defensive rebounding) at 7.9 rebounds per game and seventh in blocked shots. Not bad for a kid who was used sparingly in his time with the Dinos. “I’m really happy with how the season has gone, just from a team perspective,” Wolfram said. “I think we have a really unselfish group. Everybody on our team puts the team first.” He prefers not to focus on his individual accolades, though he’s happy to have found success with the WolfPack. “It’s been great,” he said. “Scott’s been really supportive of me since I came back and I think he’s been huge in allowing me to be successful here.” The WolfPack will be looking for that success to continue when they open their Canada West playoff series in Saskatchewan on Friday, Feb. 21, against the hometown Huskies. The teams will play their sec-

ond and third (if necessary) games of the best-of-three series on Saturday and Sunday. The Huskies are 15-7 on the season and defeated TRU in the only game between the teams, a 98-95 barnburner at the Tournament Capital Centre to open the 2013-14 season. But, the WolfPack is undeterred and will be looking to add another first this season — their first playoff series victory. “They’re good, Clark said of the Huskies. “They have some great pieces. They’ve got guys who

can shoot the ball, they rebound the ball, they’re well coached, they play hard. They’re a playoff team. “We’re going to go play and the better team is going to win,” he continued. “We hope that that’s us, but that’s what playoffs is about, the best team wins. “We want to play our best basketball — if that’s good enough to win, we’ll be really happy with that. If we play our best basketball and we come up short, we’ll still be happy with that. “That wouldn’t define our season.”

On Nov 4, 2006, a young woman went to bed not knowing her whole world was about to change . . . Krista Willoughby awoke the next day with a migraine and was taken to a Vancouver hospital. With a predisposed brain malformation, Willoughby suffered a major stroke and slipped into a com coma. ma. Her husband, Derek, was told by doctors to prepare himself for her death. Fortunately, a month later, his young wife beat the prognosis and woke up. The medical staff was amazed by her recovery, but doctors delivered the bad news — she had sufuf-fered a catastrophic stroke and she would never walk again. Willoughby, an avid runner and athlete, was determined to prove them wrong. She was moved to a rehabilitation centre in Vancouver and began physiotherapy, occupational theraherrapy, speech therapy and art therapy.

As part of her rehabilitation, she began creating art . . . STORY/B4

“As a proud

British Columbian, protecting our coast is one of our greatest priorities.”

I’m Janet Holder, leader of Northern Gateway. This past December, my team came one step closer towards our goal of building a better pipeline. After the most comprehensive, scientific review in Canadian pipeline history, the independent Joint Review Panel concluded that Canadians would be better off with Northern Gateway, than without it. This endorsement came with 209 conditions that we must meet before we start operations. These conditions reflect the input of thousands of British Columbians and Canadians, and include many of the commitments we made in our submission. We are working towards meeting these conditions in the same way we’ve been working hard to meet the tough conditions put forward by the Province. Many of these conditions centre around the preservation and protection of the diverse marine life that populate the coast of B.C. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing the details behind a number of these conditions with you – like detailed emergency response and mammal protection plans. We’ve consulted with experts from around the world to make sure that we’re doing everything possible to protect B.C.’s coastline. We’re doing all this hard work because we are committed to building a safer, better pipeline. Sincerely,

Janet Holder Leader of Northern Gateway

Art therapy heals and stimulates the brain XFrom B1

The creative process is medically accepted as a way to heal and stimulate the brain. Art Therapy Outcomes in the Rehabilitation Treatment of a Stroke Patient states: “Therapies used as part of the patient’s treatment included 10 weeks of art therapy conducted twice a week, resulting in improvements in the patient’s emotions and cognition. “The patient’s artwork provides a valuable opportunity for tracking improvements in cognition not easily detected in standard rehabilitation therapy. “Results from the Mini Mental State

Krista Willoughby took up art (above and right) to relax and rehabilitate herself after surviving a stroke.

Exam, Motor Free Visual Perception and psychological tests conducted before and after art therapy treatment showed

improved scores in visual perception and cognition, as well as an increase in motor activity and function as a secondary effect.

“This case report suggests that art therapy may have a positive therapeutic effect on chronic stroke patients.” XSee DON’T B4

‘Don’t give up, get involved with stroke-survival groups and take an art class.’ XFrom B3

For Krista, art had its ups and downs. “It was relaxing and frustrating in the same sense because what I was trying to get from my mind to the canvas didn’t look right,” she said. Despite her frustration, she kept at it. The art kept her brain moving and provided an emotional outlet for depression. Her creative moments became a time of relief and relaxation. Nine months after the stroke, Krista beat the odds. Not only did she survive, but she walked out of the rehabilitation centre on her own two feet. Since then, she has spent a great deal of time doing volunteer work with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Heart and Lung Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Krista said it is a way to give back to the community in a fun and social manner. Today, Krista spends a great deal of her time working on her paintings. She is painting in acrylics because she finds it very forgiving and can change the paint-

What you need to know: • Brain injury survivors need more rest. They’re not being lazy — they get physical fatigue as well as a brain fatigue. It’s difficult and tiring for to think, process and organize, and fatigue makes it even harder to think. • Rehabilitation takes a long time. It is usually measured in years and continues long after formal rehabilitation ends. Don’t expect survivors to be who they were, even though they look better. • Patience is key. It allows survivors to work deliberately and at their own pace to rebuild pathways in their brain. Rushing and multi-tasking inhibit cognition.

ing at any point. She is also in the process of setting up a home studio so she can paint more often. I asked Krista what words of wisdom she had for other stroke survivors. “Be positive and do the work,” she said. “A lot of people just give up, but you can’t. “You must do the therapy to get better

Union donates to Chris Rose Centre The Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism has received a $2,500 donation from Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC) as part of the union’s Building Communities Together program. The centre was nominated by James Burt, who is a member of Construction Workers Union Local 151, which is affiliated with the CLAC. Burt is from Kamloops and is employed by PCL Energy Inc. in Saskatchewan. “The Chris Rose Centre provides a one-on-one teaching technique between the student and instructor,” Burt said. “Children with autism who cannot understand the world around them are cut off and isolated. “The centre provides a program

designed specifically for the child’s needs in an environment that will enable the child to achieve their designed individual goals while supporting the parents. Burt said the centre believes all students should have the opportunity whenever possible to integrate into their community schools and to become fully participating members of their community. He noted the centre also makes a difference in the community by allowing not only the child struggling with autism to grow, but the rest of the family as well. The CLAC is an independent Canadian labour union representing more than 60,000 workers in a wide range of sectors, including construction, health care, retail, service, transportation and manufacturing.

When teachers blog, families will listen

A

S technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, our educational system is embracing it. Ten years ago, online journalling, better known as blogging, was becoming more mainstream. Uploading ideas was simple, but readership was limited. Today, most families have a computer or smartphone at home. Options to share information virtually

CARA MCKELVEY View From The SCHOOL BOARD range from Facebook and Twitter to Pinterest and Tumblr — and the list goes on and on. Millennial children have grown up with this digital age.

The use of electronics is second nature and, on occasion, perhaps more often than not, parents and teachers have to remind youth to “unplug.” Educators, on the other hand, have carefully reviewed available technologies to create interactive lesson plans. Teachers in our district use smart boards, laptops and tablets to support education. They also utilize blogging platforms to share class lessons with fellow teachers

and parents. My son’s teacher uses blogging as an organizational tool for her class. Each day, she summarizes lessons, lists homework assignments and even uses it to provide parents with regular updates on class behaviour. These reflections can range from praise for students’ hard work to a review of consequences for poor choices. Lessons travel home when students’ parents read her posts.

The blog has provided me with insight into my son’s day-to-day life at school — connecting me directly with his education. It lets me know about homework so we can both be more on the ball. Our relationship has benefited by my review of his class blog as it allows us to have more in-depth discussions on what he is learning. Many kids are willing to talk about their day and, for my son, the blog has provided con-

text to help him share and spark new discussions at the dinner table. Blogging also provides consistency and regular communication for teachers, students and parents. Rather than both parties waiting for parentteacher interviews, the process of blogging is instantaneous and provides opportunity for feedback through comments. It’s true that, as a society, we can become far too reliant on technology.

We do need to step away from the screen from time to time. What’s important to recognize is that, whether a complex gadget or a basic blog, these are tools teachers can use to enhance and support education. Cara McKelvey is a Kamloops-Thompson board of education trustee. Trustee columns run in KTW on a monthly basis. To comment, email editor@kamloops thisweek.com.

School district dips into reserve fund to find $286,000 to balance its budget By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops-Thompson school district will file a balanced budget with the provincial government — but it needs to dip into its reserve fund to do so. Treasurer Kelvin Stretch said the actual budget has a $286,000 deficit, the result of

the province’s contract settlement with school support staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees. In order to provide the wage increases of one per cent effective July 1, 2013, two per cent as of Feb. 1 and .5 per cent on May 1, districts were told by the Ministry of Education to develop co-operative-gains savings plans, savings found outside the collective agreement, to

pay for the wage improvements. Stretch said dipping into the $5-million reserve fund enabled the board to cover the first wage increase, noting the budgeting process will continue to identify savings that will pay for subsequent pay hikes. The budget approved by trustees this week shows total salary expenses for the fiscal year to be $92.67 million. Benefits account for

another $22 million. Comparable figures for the 2013 fiscal year show total salaries of $91.44 million and benefits of $20.9 million. The budget for this fiscal year, which ends on June 30, shows special-education salary costs of $14.2 million, the bulk of which goes to teachers ($7.02 million) and educational assistants ($6.2 million).

Chi-Town crown for Kia’s 2015 Soul EV electric

Set to the sounds of soulful electrified blues music, Kia has staged the global unveiling of the 2015 Soul EV at the recent Chicago Auto Show. Scheduled to go on sale in the third quarter of 2014, the Soul EV will be Kia’s first all electric, zero-emissions car sold in North America and expands the brand’s line of environmentally conscious vehicles. In the U.S., the Soul EV will initially be sold in California and Oregon in the West and several Eastern states including New York, New Jersey and Maryland — the regions with the largest EV markets and infrastructure. Beneath the floor, the 27 kW, air-cooled, 200 watt-hour/kg battery is expected to yield a range of approximately 130 to 160 kilometres of real world driving on a full charge, with internal testing and evaluation results exceeding 160 kilometres in some instances. The 360-volt, 96-cell lithium-ion polymer battery has been engineered for high capacity, thermal stability and safety. The Soul EV makes charging easy by plugging into any standard 120v outlet or a conventional 240v EV charger. The front-wheel drive Soul EV is powered by an 81.4 kW, 109 horse power electric motor producing a generous 210 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h is expected to take fewer than 12 seconds with a top speed electronically limited to approximately 145 km/h.

Cherokee is making its European debut at the 84th Geneva International Motor Show next month. It features a new 2.0litre turbo diesel engine, combined with the new nine-speed automatic transmission. It is not expected in Canada at this time. This is the first time in Europe that this powertrain combination — the efficient 2.0-liter Multijet II turbo diesel and the new nine-speed automatic gearbox — has been offered in the mid-size SUV segment. The new turbo diesel is available in two versions offering customers a choice of 170 or 140 hp outputs, both generating 258 lb/ft of torque. The 170 hp version of the 2.0-litre engine is coupled with the ninespeed automatic gearbox, while the 140 hp version of this engine is matched to a six-speed manual transmission. Both versions of the 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine incorporate Jeep’s Stop/Start technology that improves fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions.

MURDERED OUT MARVEL

Ford to offer new plow prep options Winter warriors will have a tough new tool in their arsenal against Mother Nature with Ford’s new snow plow prep option, available on the 2015 F-150. Ford will be the only manufacturer to offer a light-duty snow plow prep option across all cab configurations — Regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew. When snow plow mode is activated via the push of a button, the vehicle temporarily turns off nonessential features to provide dedicated power for the plow. The option package requires the truck be equipped with a 5.0-litre V8 engine and four-wheel drive, and is available across XL, XLT and Lariat trim levels. Upon taking delivery of a new F-150 with the snow plow prep option, owners will need to take their truck to a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier to purchase and install the plow hardware. The maximum light-duty plow weight will be over 450 pounds. Pricing for the snow plow prep option, excluding the plow, will be announced later this year. The 2015 F-150 will arrive in dealerships at the end of 2014.

Nissan unveils diesel runner at Chicago show The Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner, which is based on a Frontier Desert Runner 4x2 model, was created to gauge reaction to a Nissan mid-size pickup with a diesel engine and plot a potential future direction for the truck. It arrives a mere six months after the announcement of a partnership with Cummins Inc. to provide a 5.0litre turbo diesel V8 in the next-generation Titan full-size pickup, which will arrive in 2015. At the heart of the Frontier Diesel Runner is a 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel engine producing nearly 200 horsepower and more than 350 lb-ft. of torque, while increasing fuel economy 35 per cent over a V6-powered 2014 Frontier 4x2.

The Chevrolet City Express is the brand’s versatile urban work van, blending cargo room, maneuverability and efficiency.

Chevrolet’s all-new 2015 City Express matches maneuverability and cargo-hauling flexibility with efficiency, giving urban business owners and fleet managers valuedriven capability with low operating costs. The City Express goes on sale this fall, offering 122.7 cubic feet (3,474 liters) of customizable cargo space, a tight turning diameter of only 36.7 feet (11.2 m) and an estimated payload capacity of 1,500 pounds. The City Express will also deliver greater efficiency than fullsize vans due to its smaller size and a 2.0-litre inline-four-cylinder engine with continuously variable

valve timing matched to a continuously variable transmission. Designed for function, the City Express’s all-important cargo area accommodates large and bulky items, with 4’6” of space from sidewall to sidewall — more than enough to load a standard 40-inch by 48-inch pallet flat on the floor. There’s also nearly seven feet of room from the rear doors to the back of the front seats. With the passenger seat folded, the length grows to nine-foot eight inches. The tops of the rear wheelhouses are flat to enable tiered storage and to maximize storage space.

Kamloops businessman Ken Lepin, middle, receives congratulations from Rae and Ron Fawcett after announcing a gift of $2.25 million to TRU. Much of the money will to go towards student awards, research, and other initiatives. Lepin’s lifetime giving to TRU is now $2.5 million. In another announcement, retired Kamloops lawyer Don Andrews commits $100,000 towards TRU’s Faculty of Law. Lepin with TRU President and Vice-Chancellor Alan Shaver. Culinary Arts students create the appetizers and five-course meal of Brazilian favourites, including Pao del Mel—a chocolate honey and ginger cake with roasted pineapple and dulce de leche ice cream.
