Ukrainians keep tabs on the crisis By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Ukrainians living in Kamloops are contacting friends and relatives as violence escalates in the Eastern European country. “My father is close to the city centre [in Kiev],” said Karina Opulska, one of about 40 students at Thompson Rivers University from Ukraine. “He’s not allowed to take his car out right now.” Opulska said her mother is safe outside Kiev and her parents “never said their life is in danger.” Fellow Ukrainian student Marianna Cherniuk said her father is unable to ship out material from his manufacturing business in Kiev due to instability and blocked routes. A three-month political crisis culminated on Thursday, Feb. 20, with deadly shootings between government and protesters in the country’s capital and largest city. More than 100 people have died in clashes. “My family is happy I’m here,” Cherniuk said. “But, I can’t be happy I’m here.” Both students said they are using texting, social media and videochat to contact friends and family in Ukraine as instability grows. Ties to Kamloops from Ukraine are deep, with several generations of Ukrainians living here. Those ties include the Ukrainian Catholic church and as the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Father Pavlo Myts from the Ukrainian Catholic Church said he is concerned about dozens of friends and family living in Ukraine.

“People have the right to human dignity and don’t have to live in fear — that’s why they’re protesting,” Myts said. Myts said he is concerned about violence and politics dividing Ukrainian, pulled between allegiances to the European Union and neighbouring Russia. “People have to work together. Violence brings more violence,” Myts said. For others in Kamloops, the political problems are several generations removed, but still a serious concern. “We do talk about it at church,” said Liz Lyne, who was born in Canada and is a member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church here. “Since last fall, a lot has gone one.” The church on Eighth Avenue in North Kamloops raises money for charitable causes in Ukraine, with a focus on children. Ukrainian Women’s Association president Bella Bugera said those in the city with Ukrainian heritage are concerned about the violence and breakdown of order they can see on TV and read about in newspapers. “They’re saddened about the brutality going on. They talk about [Russian president Vladimir] Putin wanting Ukraine with Russia and it’s time Ukraine stands on its own two feet.” Cherniuk, who is studying marketing at TRU, is in the early stages of a video project putting together images and information from friends and family in Ukraine. “I want to take video, pictures and try to create a situation of what is happening in Ukraine,” she said. Opulska said she wants Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych to resign and be jailed for crimes against the Ukrainian people.

ANSWERING THE CALL STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

K

AMLOOPS firefighters expect to be first on the scene for more medical calls, since the B.C.

Ambulance Service (BCAS) downgraded its response to a number of 911 call types last fall. Since October, the BCAS has downgraded 39 types of calls from “hot” to “cold” — meaning ambulances will no longer use their lights and sirens while responding. Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) Chief Dale McLean told city council this week his department won’t be following suit. “We feel very strongly that, with some of these calls, when they’re asking for medical assistance, we need to get there as quickly as we can and as safely as we can so we can start a medical intervention,” he said. Among the calls downgraded are various types of falls, some motor-vehicle accident injuries and some abdominal pains. McLean said KFR

did its own review of calls and will do away with sirens for 13, mainly calls relating to abdominal pain. But, he remains puzzled as to why the BCAS would accept slower response times

for falls classified as “possibly dangerous” and serious hemorrhages at car crashes. “We reviewed that and we thought, ‘Are we missing something? Is there something we’re not getting with what they’re recommending?’” McLean said. “Because, to the person that’s out there delivering the service, it does not make sense that when a person is having a hemorrhage, you’re going to go there and take your time.” However, Dr. William Dick, vicepresident of medical health programs and B.C. Emergency Health Services, told KTW the calls that are raising alarm bells aren’t as serious as they sound. Dick said the classification names for the nearly 900 types of calls the BCAS responds to were written by the company

that manufactures the service’s dispatch equipment — and some of them sound worse than they should. “It sounds alarming, but those patients, they’re not actually

that injured or sick,” he said. “The might have a broken hip or something, someone might fall and break their leg, but we know that they’re not going to suffer any medical misadventure by waiting an extra few minutes for an ambulance.” Dick said he made a recommendation to downgrade some calls after a detailed review of more than 600,000 calls to dispatchers across the province made over two years. The review looked at how patients were doing when ambulance services arrived on scene, what — if any — lifesaving procedures were needed before reaching hospital and vital signs and diagnoses once patients reached the end of their ambulance journey. “Some of the calls, it was obvious that the patients weren’t as

sick,” Dick said. “Obviously, everyone who calls an ambulance has got something wrong with them, but there was no critical illness, there was no danger to the patient.” Dick said the priority

changes mean ambulance crews can respond more quickly to the most-severe calls.

The BCAS has also argued the changes will decrease the risk of accidents caused by ambulances driving at higher speeds. As part of the review, eight types of calls were also upgraded from “cold” to “hot.” Dick believes the reason firefighters are pushing back against the changes is because they’re beating ambulance crews to more calls. Dick said first responders are waiting an average of six-anda-half minutes with patients before paramedics arrive under the new system. “I understand that some of the [fire] chiefs in British Columbia have said they’re providing comfort to the patient and comfort care, and that’s not an unreasonable thing for them to do,” he said. “I have nothing against that at all. But, I know the difference it makes for them to go from code three to code two makes no difference to the outcome of the patient at the

end of the day.” At its meeting this week, several councillors came down squarely on the side of firefighters, urging KFR to keep responding to calls with sirens blaring. “I think what worries me about all this is I see a gutting of what has worked really well for our community,” said Marg Spina, who worries seniors and young children could be hurt by the change.

Pat Wallace urged firefighters to continue responding as they feel is best. “If the ambulance can’t make it, I know the fire department will,” she said. The B.C. Ambulance Service will review the changes in April. Dick said if it looks like patients are being adversely affected by the move, he will advise the service to revert to its old system.

Debate on arts centre

A new performingarts centre was once again the subject of some heated questioning at Kamloops city council on Tuesday, Feb. 18. During a year-end report from the city’s parks, recreation and cultural-services department, director Byron McCorkell said he hopes to have a conceptual plan ready by the end of 2014. That had Coun. Nelly Dever questioning how staff would come up with the plan. “I don’t want to end up where we were with the gateway plan, where we got a $24-million plan with almost no public input,” she said, referencing a beautification plan for the Tranquille-airport corridor that council declined to pursue last fall. Dever told McCorkell she wants to see staff look at the current supply of performance spaces in the city and determine if there are ways to improve existing stock without spending much money. She is also concerned a performing-arts centre will leave other venues standing empty. McCorkell said that’s not a concern because demand for venue space is already well outpacing supply, noting the new centre will partially cater to acts that don’t have a venue that fits. “The Interior Savings Centre is a great venue if you’re a big band,” he said. “If you’re Diana Krall, you’re never coming to Kamloops. She would if we had a performing-arts centre.” The parks department is asking council to agree to spend $260,000 on studies for the new centre as part of this year’s supplementary budget. McCorkell said he wants to follow the Tournament Capital model for the centre, with staff creating a business case and plan in consultation with arts groups in the community, then turning it over to the general public in a referendum.

Have your (final) say on city budget By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloopsians will have one more chance to pitch or pan the projects on this year’s supplemental budget list on Tuesday, Feb. 25, when the city holds its final public input session on the 2014 budget at Interior Savings Centre. The final session will follow the more casual, round-table discussion format the city adopted during its early consultations in the fall of 2013. While those meetings allowed for discussion of core services, this time city officials are looking for input on how to pare down the usual lengthy list of supplementary items requested by community members and city staff. Among the more contentious items on this year’s list is a $260,000 request from the city’s parks, recreation and cultural-

services department that would begin laying the groundwork for a new performing-arts centre. The money would allow the city to hire a project consultant for six months, develop a business case for the centre and do preliminary site surveys once land is selected for the venue. Councillors Arjun Singh, Marg Spina, Nelly Dever and Nancy Bepple have all voiced objections to the cost of the studies, with Bepple suggesting the money be split over two years and Dever saying the city first look at what it can do with its existing performance spaces. The arts centre isn’t the only cultural issue that has sparked debate around the council table. The Kamloops Thrive Festival is seeking a grant of $37,500 to fund its second year of operations. Last year, the city gave the festival $75,000 in what was billed as a one-time grant. Nor are the arts-centre studies

the only big-ticket items on this year’s list. Other high-cost items include a Kermode-bear habitat at the B.C. Wildlife Park ($250,000), a second RCMP officer for Kamloops’ domestic-violence unit ($74,060) and a family washroom for Riverside Park ($120,000). Council will also consider another expansion of city transit services. BC Transit is offering 6,000 more hours of conventional bus service and an additional three buses, as of September 2015. The extra service would cost the city $110,000 in its first year and $355,000 in 2016. For a full list of this year’s supplemental items, go online to kamloops.ca/2014budget. Budget consultations on Tuesday begin at 7 p.m. and run until 10 p.m. The city will also be taking budget feedback via Twitter using #Kamloopsbudget.

Manning the gates as our language undergoes change

I

T WAS NINE MINUTES INTO the first period of the CanadaSwitzerland women’s hockey semifinal game at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games when Nicole Bullo of the Swiss team recorded the first penalty of the game — two minutes for tripping. Bullo was sent off and play-byplay announcer Mark Lee noted Canada had the man advantage — an observation that was followed by a pause. Lee and colour commentator Cassie Campbell-Pascall then engaged in a 30-second bit on whether the Canadian women’s team — or any women’s team — can enjoy a man anything, much less a man advantage. Lee quipped that the Swiss were short a lady or a woman. CampbellPascall offered a usual monotonelaced response. Lee finally decided to continue using the hockey vernacular to which we are all accustomed, noting the Canadian women’s man advantage was the first of the game. Bless Lee for smacking his lips together, opening his mouth just so and pressing his tongue firmly against the back of his upper front teeth: “M-ah-nn.” Wordplay can be tricky as usage changes over time and even more rapidly in this digital age of thumbs pecking away on tiny keyboards. Never mind the black rhino and panda — the fragile vowel is the most endangered species in this consonant- and character-dominated smartphone generation.

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS Apparently, “2Bornt2b” can be used to sum up Shakespeare’s Hamlet — and may also be the latest rapper to have won a Grammy. But, while fans of Oxford and Webster and even dictionary.com buck the trend and take those extra few seconds to spell out proper words via a text message, the lunacy that has our lexicon in a lariat lingers on. Back to the hockey game. As Lee was calling the semifinal contest and was confronted with the penalty, his “man-advantage” phrase prompted him to pause. It’s understandable, but “man” advantage is perfectly fine. After all, 60 per cent of “woman” is “man.” It really is logic — referring to “man” when discussing a female event is simply employing economy of language. If a female solider is injured on the battlefield, do her comrades yell, “Woman down!”? Methinks taking the time to utter that extra syllable could lead to further peril.

We live in an age that seems to reach for gender-neutrality in every word used — often to the point where we scrub down language until the letters form bland and sanitized drek. In these pages, a reader will often see references to people who head a committee. These people often chair meetings and can be said to hold the “chair” of whatever committee it is they lead. However, readers will rarely see said person referred to as “chair” because, well, it is a ridiculous way to denote someone. They are either a chairman or a chairwoman. A chair is what am sitting on as I type these words. Maybe I am getting old. Maybe I am becoming Archie Bunker. I still refer to “girls” when speaking of ladies in their 30s and 40s. I have found myself reflecting on the actions of female aldermen from days gone by. And I will never be comfortable with that most unwieldy of terms — ombudsperson.

Keeping an eye on carnage in Kiev Canada’s women thrilled fans on Thursday, Feb. 20, with a remarkable come-from-behind 3-2 gold-medal-winning effort over the U.S. in Sochi, Russia. At about the same time in Kiev, Ukraine — not far at all from the site of the Olympic Winter Games — the violence continued and death toll mountd as government forces attacked protesters. The contrast couldn’t be more stark as only 1,000 kilometres separated euphoria and joy from death and despair. The situation in Ukraine — where protesters are demanding president Viktor Yanukovych step down — has reached the point where other countries, including Canada, are acting. Canada has followed the European Union by slapping travel and economic sanctions against Yanukovych’s government, which Prime Minister Stephen Harper has labelled a “regime.” Yanukovych’s ally, Russian President Vladimir Putin, has warned the West against getting involved and continues to deny Ukrainian forces have opened fire on protesters. Yanukovych, meanwhile, is sticking to his script by claiming the government is conducting “anti-terrrorist operations” in Kiev, which, as KTW columnist Gwynne Dyer noted, is what governments say when they are preparing to kill their own people. The situation is dire and there is a Ukrainian community in Kamloops that is paying close attention to the carnage in its homeland. As the Olympics wind up this weekend, keep an eye on Ukraine, where the battles will continue to rage. Keep an ear out, too, for calls for help from Kamloops’ Ukrainian community. Do what you can.

We need council with conviction Editor: As we approach municipal elections, we will start hearing from usually silent councillors. They’ll talk about large projects like Tranquille Road beautification. Nelly Dever wants our natural brown semi-arid grasslands hidden from visitors; meanwhile, accepting billowing clouds of pollution over her shoulder. This is a council member who can’t make a statement on Ajax and the inherent toxins, dust, diesel fumes, etc., swirling around our heads, risking precious water, animals and foliage. But, she is willing to stand strong on an 11-member task force to spend millions of dollars to create a more desirable welcome mat. Granted, sidewalks are needed for pedestrian safety but, if they add items like trees, etc., a significant maintenance budget will be required. No tree will ever cover the pollution streaming across from Domtar and, if Ajax goes forward, visitors will likely find trees painted in toxins. I get upset with council members like Dever who don’t mention what could be done with $4 million, such as feeding

hungry students and families, helping seniors cope with increased living expenses, working with agencies to build shelters for single mothers and funding agencies that deal with issues of the homeless and mentally displaced persons. Instead, we send these folks to the food bank and shelter them under bridges. We don’t want to see them — they may spoil the look of Kamloops — so they’re shuffled and told to move. Let’s plant a tree where they can hide. Where are the guts to turning in a zerobudget increase? What has the yearly efficiencies management and staff created and what is that budget savings? We say salaries at city hall are in line with other municipalities. It may be true, but doesn’t say other municipalities operate efficiently, either. The comment deflects total responsibility for sound financial management. We spend millions on a bike path and justify over-expenditures because the money was available in reserves. That’s crazy because, again, it moves away from what our citizens really need. Some are living in entitlement while others struggle to survive.

We have councillors with large egos and large ideas to match. Still they look away from the citizens who need compassion and meaningful action. I wonder if Dever and other councillors understand what $1 million means to our collective community. And what angers me most is, with all the information around Ajax, many councillors will not say “yes” or “no” in fear they could lose their prestigious council seats. As I see it, their first priority is sitting on council, puffing their egos and thus placing our citizens as a lower priority. We must look at creating a solid foundation of progressive citizens before looking to build on a foundation of wanting. Will someone please take a stand to argue for a zero-budget increase — for efficiencies and for our citizens? And, for those who cannot claim their voice on Ajax, please elect not to run for council again because we need councillors who stand behind their convictions. Dennis Paget Kamloops

Anything improves casino Editor: Regarding the possibility of Lake City Casino moving from downtown to the former Rona building in Versatile: Yes, yes, yes — anything would be an improvement. There’s nothing positive about the downtown location. It can’t stay downtown because it’s outgrown the space. In the summer, there isn’t a working air conditioner — and Kamloops is a hot desert. The current atmosphere is unpleasant. If it was set up like casinos in Vernon or Langley or anywhere else, for that matter, it would draw more

people. Vernon moved to its new location, a standalone building and people come from all over. Think of those visiting Kamloops — I doubt they’d return to a casino that lacks professionalism, cleanliness and setup. The floor workers walk around bored out of their minds. They have no clients to attend to. When it’s busy, the machines are crowded and you can’t sit comfortably without being disturbed when the average person or someone with a disability walks by. Then there’s the kitchen — it smells so bad you can’t play

the nearby machines without choking on the greasy smell. There’s also no room for live entertainment The setup is wrong. Chances Gaming Entertainment on the North Shore has it right. It’s spacious, enjoyable, hosts live entertainment, maintains proper kitchen facilities — it’s run well. In the lounge, gamblers can take a break and relax, eat, drink and socialize comfortably.

Mountaineer tours, vineyards, The Tim Hortons Brier, golf and Harper Mountain. Then there’s the Tk’emlups Indian Band Kamloopa Powwow, the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo, the Interior Provincial Exhibition and Stampede, Music in the Park and more. The Rona building has good visibility and would make an entrance coming into Kamloops. Costco, casino, rows of accommodations, local pubs, gas stations, restaurants — these would be a definite draw to Kamloops.

Editor: In the last few months, negativity has circulated about Royal Inland Hospital. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I’m expressing mine. I spent Dec. 11 to Jan. 24 in the hospital. Dr. Azad and his staff were very professional and do an outstanding job. Tracy, Becky, Teresa, Frankie, Sue and all the sixth-floor south nurses are awesome, professional and dedicated. I would like to praise these people for jobs well done and to say — keep up the good work. Thank you, again.

Kamloops MLAs defend budget, fee hikes By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

City MLAs are defending the newest provincial budget that will see another in a long string of increases to Medical Services Plan premiums, along with hikes at ICBC and BC Hydro. Finance Minister Mike de Jong introduced a budget this week that forecasts the province’s books will be balanced this year for a second time. To get there, Medical Services Premiums (MSP) will go up by four per cent this year. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation estimates MSP premiums have risen by one-third in six years. Premiums have doubled over the 13 years of B.C. Liberal government. “We ran a campaign on that budget,” Health Minister Terry Lake said. “The NDP didn’t say anything about MSP in their pre-election budget. They didn’t promise to reduce or lower them.” Lake said the Liberals set out a threeyear plan that included MSP increases.

“We were clear and transparent that MSP would go up. If we didn’t do that, we couldn’t fund health care or would have to take from programs like education or an increase in social services — things like that.” The B.C. Liberals under Premier Christy Clark are forecasting a second balanced budget with little room to manoeuvre. To get there, it is selling some government assets and raising user fees outside taxes. Transportation Minister Todd Stone said along with increases, government has pledged to put another $2.5 billion into health care in three years. “In another three years from now, with the addition of $2.5 billion, health care will represent 42 per cent of the entire provincial budget,” Stone said. “We’re asking some British Columbians to pay a little more for the rising cost of health care.” Those who earn less than $22,000 a year are exempted from paying MSP pre-

miums, while another 200,000 people pay on a graduated scale. The increases to MSP come on top of what the government forecasts will be a 28 per cent increase to BC Hydro premiums over the next five years. Stone, who is responsible for Crown corporation ICBC, acknowledges drivers face a 4.9 per cent hike to basic premiums — something made easier by a four per cent drop in optional premiums. That is being driven by increasing number and severity of bodily injury cases. “The increase for 80 per cent of British Columbians with both works out to about $11 a year,” he said. The NDP estimates the MSP and BC Hydro increases will cost the average family nearly $900 a year more by the end of the government’s three-year plan. Stone and Lake are scheduled to meet with city business leaders today (March 21) in TRU’s Mountain Room during a Kamloops Chamber of Commerce luncheon to promote the 2014 budget.

Business, labour respond to British Columbia’s 2014 budget Business, labour and other organizations gathered in Victoria for the budget presentation. A sampling of their responses: • Phil Venoit of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers said building trades unions are looking for more emphasis on trades training. A new art school in Vancouver is not the right priority for a province that is trying to ramp up major industrial

development, he said. B.C. has lost many industrial workers to Alberta, and they are generally paid substantially more there so it is difficult to lure them back home, Venoit said. • Phil Hochstein, president of the Independent Contractors and Business Association, said the “boring” budget is a sign of stability. “When they’re investing in significantly in infrastruc-

A11

ture to create skills training, that’s what government needs to do,” Hochstein said. “The private sector will create the jobs.” • Bonnie Pearson of the Hospital Employees’ Union said the government’s emphasis on keeping health care spending growth down to little more than two per cent a year is being felt at the service level. “As it stands, there is a workload crisis in long-

term care that has produced some of the most dangerous working conditions in the province in terms of injuries,” Pearson said. • Mike Klassen, B.C. director of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, gave the 2014 budget a letter grade of B-minus for its lack of measures for small business, but an A for not adding any new taxes and balancing the books.

BANISHED, BUT WANTING TO RETURN By Tim Petruk

STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops lawyer has asked a judge to change his mind about a banishment ordered three months ago on the grounds it is making it impossible for his disabled client to become a productive member of society. Shane Adam was banished from Kamloops city limits as part of an unusual sentence handed down by provincial court Judge Roy Dickie in November. The peculiar punishment came after Adam pleaded guilty to a pair of uttering-threats charges — the latest in a long line of convictions stemming from the 23-year-old’s volatile on-again, off-again relationship with his ex-girlfriend. “The idea was for Mr. Adam to leave this jurisdiction for the protection of the public,” Dickie said. “The order was made for the purpose of him receiving treatment.” Defence lawyer Micah Rankin

www.kamloopsthisweek.com

LOCAL NEWS has applied to have the sentence amended — namely, to do away with the banishment condition — because, he said, it’s too hard for Adam to better himself away from home. Adam, who is from Kamloops, has been living in Powell River since being banished from the Tournament Capital. “The term of probation [the banishment] hasn’t had the desired effect,” Rankin said, calling the sentence “a displacement.” “Mr. Adam is not rehabilitating himself and the community he’s in now is having to deal with him. He’s not re-integrating into society and, for that reason, it ought to be varied.” Rankin said the banishment is a violation of two of Adam’s Charter rights — those of liberty and equal treatment under the law without discrimination. Court heard Adam has fetalalcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and requires treatment — something Rankin said isn’t available in Powell River. “The effect of the order is to impose a special burden on him,” he said. “For a person with a disability, the effect is a breach of his Charter rights.” As proof of his client’s inability to become a productive member of society while on court-ordered exile, Rankin pointed to Adam’s

new criminal charges since his arrival in Powell River — one count each of causing a disturbance and theft under $5,000. “In effect, he’s causing new problems in Powell River,” Rankin said. “What’s happened is we have an individual with significant problems arising from his FASD — and he’s in a smaller community and, in that community, there aren’t the resources in place to adequately deal with his FASD.” When pressed by Dickie, however, Rankin admitted those resources might not be available in Kamloops, either. The judge chided Rankin on that front, but refused to dismiss the application. “All you know is the resources aren’t available in Powell River,” Dickie said. “You’re not sure if they’re available in Kamloops and you’re not sure if they’re available in other jurisdictions.” In addition to the provincial court application to do away with the banishment, Rankin has also filed an appeal of Dickie’s sentence in B.C. Supreme Court. Prosecutor Sarah Firestone said the Crown needs more time to consider its argument on the application. Lawyers are expected to meet this week to set a date for a hearing at which the Crown will argue its position.

Even from afar, Martin seeks to inspire By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

When Lesra Martin is out in the public in his motivational-speaker role, it’s not often in his hometown. That’s why, when the Kamloops lawyer was asked to take part in a local Junior Achievement event on Thursday, Feb. 20, he was determined to be there — even though he had a prior commitment in Vancouver. Martin made arrangements for a virtual appearance, courtesy of the wonders of the Internet, so he could address the 500 high-school students at the organization’s Economics for Success event at

Bruce was born in 1932 in Cochrane, ON. After completing his schooling, he worked in the gold mines in Timmons, ON, before moving to BC in the early 1950’s, where he met and married his wife, Myrna.

Thompson Rivers University. “I was moved by the focus of the event,” Martin said, “and I’m honoured to donate my time in my community to talk to students.” He said the gist of his talk came from his own life, entrenched in poverty in Brooklyn, mentored and supported by a group of Canadians, eventually becoming a lawyer. Literacy and education are important to Martin; he’s been quoted saying he found his freedom through reading. He said he wanted to try to “inspire these young achievers to focus on education and always remember to put themselves in the picture. Don’t discount the difference they can make.”

Every day, Martin said, he thinks about the journey he has taken in his life. “And I’m appreciative of all the opportunities I was given. That’s why I feel man obligation to give back.” Martin said he saw the opportunity to speak to the students as a chance to remind them that “if they put in the time today, no matter how hard the struggle is, no matter how hard the journey is, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.” Economics for Success brought together students from the Kamloops-Thompson and Gold Trail school districts. It’s goal is to encourage students to recognize the slue of staying in school to acquire knowledge and skills that will help them in careers.

Bruce worked various jobs throughout the province such as logging, equipment operator, road construction and driving for Arrow Transfer, which led him into his last 20 year career as a Business Representative for the Teamsters Union, Local 213. He and his wife retired to the Little Shuswap Lake in 1991, where he enjoyed golfing, fishing, travelling south and his volunteer work as the Fire Chief for the Little Shuswap Indian Band. Then in 2005, they returned to Kamloops to be closer to family and friends. “Like summer flowers, we grow into life’s visual splendid beauty, Then we slowly fade away. But it’s only in our passing that our true spiritual beauty, is released to carry on in our endless journey into the universe. Thanks for being part of my life, Bruce...” - Murray By request, there will be no formal service held, with a family gathering to be held at a later date. The family wishes to extend special thanks to Dr. Paul Yanko for his exceptional personal care. Donations in Bruce’s memory may be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, the Heart & Stroke Foundation, or a charity of your choice.

Dealing with the loss of a lifetime TRU volleyball player Stuart Richey suffering through death of twin brother By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T WAS THREE days before Stuart Richey’s 21st birthday — Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013 — that his life changed forever. He was in Burns Lake at the time — a forest-fire fighter in his summers, he was working in the area — when he got the call.

It was early, around five in the morning. He heard his mother’s voice on the other end of the phone — his brother Connor had been in an accident. Stuart should hurry. Connor and Stuart were born three minutes apart, Connor being the elder. They were close, as most twins usually are, and the news was devastating. “I was angry,” Stuart

says. “I was very angry — I was punching my bed, screaming.” Connor had been in Vancouver watching a Whitecaps soccer game with his girlfriend. He had been standing on a SkyTrain platform at East Broadway and Commercial Drive waiting for the train that would take him home. He leaned against a railing on the edge of the platform — a railing that, at 42 inches tall, is now the subject of an ongoing coroner’s investigation — and fell over it, dropping 40 feet to the concrete below. It was a freak accident. Connor was taken to Vancouver General Hospital with a traumatic head injury and broken bones in his neck, wrist and pelvis. Connor Richey planned to attend Ranger College in Texas on a golf scholarship. The accident that took his life occured a week before he was scheduled to head south.

Twin brothers Connor (left) and Stuart Richey in vacation mode. Connor was killed in a freak accident last summer at a SkyTrain station in Vancouver. Stuart, a TRU WolfPack volleyball player, is doing his best to cope with the loss, with teammates, family and friends helping him along the way. Connor was 20 when he died.

Stuart made the two-hour trip to Prince George where he caught a plane to Vancouver. It was a relatively short flight — a little more than an hour direct — but felt like the longest he had ever taken. *** Just hours earlier, at 8:40 p.m., at home in Roberts Creek — a Sunshine Coast community of 3,000, halfway between the town of Gibsons and the District of Sechelt — Stuart and Connor’s mother Jan received a similar phone call. The caller ID read Vancouver General Hospital, but it wasn’t an unusual number for the former volleyball player to see on the display. Jan dealt with

complications from two hip surgeries and figured the call was a reminder for an upcoming appointment — the hospital always seemed to call at the strangest of times. But when Jan answered the phone and learned the real reason for the call, she collapsed into hysterics. “You go into complete panic mode, thinking all the worst things and worst scenarios,” she says. “It’s interesting because I can replay that whole night, basically minute by minute almost. Even though it was constant stuff, it just comes back to you so clearly. “It’s still really hard to believe . . . it’s just really hard to believe.” She and husband George had a little more than an hour to

catch the last ferry to Vancouver. She recalls feeling lucky — had it been just a few weeks later, the ferry would have switched to its winter hours. They made it to the Langdale ferry ramp in time — frantically making arrangements with family members and friends on the way — and settled in for the hour-long trip to Horseshoe Bay, as Connor lay in a hospital bed just 50 kilometres away. *** Connor was a golfer, a good one at that. He had been scheduled to leave for Texas the following week, attending Ranger College on a golf scholarship. He was a

physical specimen — a dedicated athlete who golfed two rounds a day, went to the gym to work out in between and still found time to hit the driving range before the day was out. But now, he was lying in a hospital bed in VGH as family and friends flocked in from around the country — his sister Kyla came from Winnipeg, where she was playing volleyball with Team Canada. Stuart’s roommate and fellow WolfPack player Matt Krueger came in from Abbotsford. Others from the Coast made the trip — everyone wanted to see Connor, everyone wanted their time with him.

CRIME OF THE WEEK HOME BROKEN INTO DURING THE DAY

The Richey twins, donning matching outfits, prepare to brave the water.

‘He was my best friend — best friend and brother’ XFrom A15

“I was telling my friends to come say bye,” Stuart says, fighting back tears. “It was a sleepless night, for sure.” He had arrived at VGH at 11 a.m. on Sunday, a little more than 12 hours after Connor fell. Stuart sat with his older brother, told him how much he loved him. The family wrote goodbye letters to Connor, reading them to him before the doctors came to get him so his organs could be donated. Jan says reading those letters was one of the most anguishing, heart-wrenching experience a family could go through. They knew early on that it was unlikely Connor would survive his injuries — he had almost no brain function. Connor never regained consciousness and, at 2:15 p.m. on Aug. 11, the doctors declared him legally dead. “He was my best friend — best friend and brother,” Stuart says. “It’s like knowing no one’s ever going to get that close to you again. He knew things that no one else will.” That was the day Stuart’s life changed forever. Losing a sibling is hard enough, but losing a twin is a different kind of loss entirely. Connor had always been there for him, always a friend to play

On Wednesday February 12th a home owner on the 400 block of Alexander St. was shock to find their house had been broken into. The home owner was out of the house from noon to one o’clock to get groceries, when they came back, the house had been searched through. The suspects may have been watching the home for the owner to leave, the suspects forced open a basement side door, that gave them full access to the entire house. Once inside the suspects were selective in what they took, only taking a small amount of cash and some personal identification. This is a good reminder for everyone to be aware of who is in your neighbourhood, if you see someone suspicious call the police right away, don’t be a victim to these thieves. If you have any information on this break and enter please contact Crime Stoppers only your information will be used never your name.

HIT AND RUN IN HOTEL PARKING LOT A suspect vehicle was seen smashing into a parked vehicle at the West end of the Coast Hotel parking lot on Rogers Way, at approximately 1050 am on Sunday February the 2nd. The suspect vehicle hit the other vehicle hard enough to know there had been a collision. The suspect driver, instead of getting out to examine

the damage, the person just drove off out of the parking lot. This suspect vehicle was seen by a witness but they could not get a licence plate, they did describe the suspect vehicle, as a 3 / 4 ton, white pickup truck, they were unsure of the make or model of the truck but said it had the word “Lowen” on the side.

The suspect’s vehicle had significant damage to them and would be easily noticed by someone seeing the truck. If you have any information on this hit and run or know the whereabouts of this suspect vehicle, please contact Crime Stoppers, you will receive a cash reward upon the arrest of the suspect.

with, always someone to talk to. He didn’t feel like he could talk to anyone now, certainly not about Connor. Six months after his brother’s accident, he still doesn’t talk about it much. “Up here, no one knew who he was,” Stuart says. “So, it was like not really being alone, but sort of alone, in the sense that no one really knows who he was, what I’m going through.” There was a time when he wasn’t sure he was going to come back to TRU. In the days following Connor’s service — a memorial at the Sechelt Golf Course that drew more than 800 mourners — Stuart and his parents tried to decide what was best

for him. Should he stay in Roberts Creek? Go travel? In the end, they decided he’d return to TRU, to his friends and his volleyball team, his regular routines and his business degree. They hoped routines would help Stuart cope and get him through the tough days. He says he came back because he, too, thought it was best to return to his routines but, in a sense, he also came back for Connor. “The fact that we were so athletic growing up, too, I thought he’d want me playing instead of just sitting around doing nothing,” Stuart says.

Early Monday morning, between 5:10 and 5:15 am, February 17th, a security guard was patrolling near the Toyota Car dealership on Caribou Place, when he heard several gun shots coming from Hillside Dr. The shots were directed towards several vehicles on the dealership car lot, a further inspection found that four

vehicles had been hit by bullets. The RCMP forensic unit attended and located shell casings from where the shots were fired from, as well they retrieved bullets from the vehicles that had been struck by the bullets. This act of vandalism is not only senseless, it is very dangerous to the public. Although it was early in

the morning, there are people in the area on Hillside Dr or Caribou Place, someone may seen the suspects or a suspicious vehicle nearby. If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact Crime Stoppers, you will remain anonymous and will never have to go to court.

Richeys using volleyball to honour Connor XFrom A16

Jan and George are proud of their children for continuing on with their lives despite the loss of Connor. They’re doing everything they can to support Stuart and Kyla and the last year has made all of them realize the importance of family and cherishing every moment together. “I’m so proud of him that he came to school,� Jan says, holding back tears. “He’s playing. He’s playing phenomenally well.� Stuart’s sister Kyla also returned to volleyball after Connor passed away. She now plays professionally in Turkey. “Both of them could have just said, ‘Forget it,’ and packed it in,� Jan says. But, they didn’t, even though there were days when they certainly wanted to — they used sport as a means of coping with the tragedy. There were days when getting out of bed seemed like too much, days when he thought about giving up, calling his parents and asking them to come get him and take him back to Roberts Creek. But then the afternoon would roll around and it was time to go to

volleyball practice. Volleyball helped him get through those dark days, surrounded by positive teammates, their work ethic and dedication. “It’s been helpful,� said Stuart, whose WolfPack squad is competing in the Canada West Final Four conference championship tournament this weekend in Langley. TRU head coach Pat Hennelly says Stuart has had a resurgence this season, as has the rest of the WolfPack. With Stuart now in his fourth season, Jan has seen her son’s team play for years — but there’s a little something extra this season, a greater sense of team. “He won’t take credit for that, but I do think it has a little bit to do with — even though they’re not overtly saying anything to Stuart — they’re like, ‘OK, well if Stuart can come to practice after what he’s gone through, why am

I complaining?’� Jan says. *** It’s been six months since Connor’s accident — since the day Stuart’s life changed forever — and things haven’t really gotten easier. People told him they would, that things would improve, each day would be a little bit easier than the last, but it hasn’t happened yet. “I think I’ve just gotten better at putting a face on and managing it a bit better, not in the sense that it has gotten better,� Stuart says. “I don’t think it gets better. I think it changes,� his mother adds. “I think you move sideways. It’s fluid. “We’re changed and, if there’s a positive that will come out of it . . . it changes who you are and hopefully it will change us in a positive way.�

Stuart says he’s different now. He was once money-hungry, always saving, always wanting to earn more. Now, he hardly sees the point; when his friends talk about money he’s of the mind there are more important things in life. Things were the same with school — how could he care about business ethics after losing his best friend? The family takes some comfort in the fact Connor’s organs were donated following his accident — his lungs to a boy with cystic fibrosis, his kidneys to someone in kidney failure, dependent on dialysis. His liver, eyes and pancreas were also given to others. “That’s not something we had ever discussed,� Jan says of the donation. “It just seemed like he was an athlete in his prime and that, if he could help other people, it just seemed to be a logical conclusion.� Connor’s grandmother thought his shoulders should have been donated as well — he had great shoulders.

“I haven’t thought about it a lot, but I certainly feel that it wasn’t a complete waste, his death,� Jan says. “I think the thought that people benefitted from this, there has to be some positive.� The Richeys also used the tragedy to start a memorial fund — the Connor Richey Legacy Fund. They’ve received $13,000 in donations so far and are looking at what to do with the money. They know the fund will have something to do with golf, maybe using the money to help kids access the game — Connor would have liked that. They’ll also be hosting a golf tournament in Connor’s memory this summer at the Sechelt Golf Course. A few members of the WolfPack might make the trip out, listening as the family shares their memories of Connor — the Thanksgiving dinner plates with gravy in the place of vegetables, the way he always knew exactly how to make his brother lose his temper, the way Stuart used to have to act as Connor’s translator when they were kids, when he had a speech impediment and Stuart was the only one who could understand him. Then they’ll play the game he loved and remember him.

KMHA claims $10,000 in prizes from Timber Mart The Kamloops Minor Hockey Association and its community partner, KidSport, are the secondary prize winners of the Timber Mart SharpShooter contest. Four secondary prizes, each valued at $10,000, consist of a $5,000 charitable donation and a $5,000 donation to a hockey association. The contest featured a Facebook game and a mobile-phone app that required participants to play a challenging skills-based hockey game and contribute their points to their local minor hockey association.

At the end of the contest period, those points were turned into ballots and 10 finalist teams were randomly selected. Associations were then asked to submit a proposal outlining how the prize money would help both the association and its youthfocused community organization of choice. A panel of judges from the Timbrkids Foundation Board deliberated over the proposals and ultimately awarded prizes to five teams. “Of the many great proposals we received from across Canada, the submission from

New TRU comedy clowns about marriage By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

4102 2014

Since landing a part in The Beaux Strategem, actor Wyatt Purcha hasn’t felt as guilty about missing the occasional trip to the gym. Running up stairs, leaping through doorways and onto furniture — and doing it all in turn-of-the-century knee-high boots — has been enough of a workout. “You sweat a lot,” Purcha said. “This is straight-up physical,” added castmate Andrew Cooper. “Doors are hitting people, you’re falling over things, it’s all about the boob jokes. It’s basic body humour.” To prepare for the latest effort from Thompson Rivers University’s Actors Workshop Theatre, actors spent a week learning the art of clowning to better throw themselves around the stage. “This is very expressive comedy,” said director Heidi Verwey. “They really needed to not be afraid to jump in and be very clownish.” Originally penned by George Farquhar in 1707, The Beaux Strategem was little more than a footnote in the history of theatre because of its large cast

of characters and overly complicated subplots. In the late 1930s, Our Town playwright Thornton Wilder started to adapt the play for a modern audience, but died before he could complete the script, leaving it to modern playwright Ken Ludwig to complete the adaptation in 2004. For her take on the production, Verway set the action on a 19th — century Louisiana river boat, where childhood friends and ne’er-do-wells Archer and Aimwell (Cooper and Purcha) have come aboard disguised as a well-to-do lord and his manservant. “We come up with this plot — this strategem — to go around ensnaring young heiresses,” Cooper said. “In this day and age, you would get paid a dowry for marrying a young woman, so we create identities, marry young women, and leave with the money.” But, the pair gets more than they bargained for when they meet their fellow passengers, including Lady Bountiful, a would-be clairvoyant and doctor who specializes in making her patients’ ailments worse and the unhappily married Mrs. Sullen. Their con goes further awry when

WINNER

Aimwell falls in love with the young lady they mean to swindle. “Ultimately, the play is saying marriage is really stupid. Marriage is a fool’s bet, but true love is worth almost dying for,” said Verwey. Not enough action? The play also includes, in no particular order: Guns, baguettes used as swords, breast jokes, double entendres

and one humongous bed. Though the humour can get a little racy, “it’s very broad too,” Verway said. The Beaux Strategem runs Feb. 27 to March 1 and March 6 to March 8 at 8 p.m. in the Old Main building at TRU. Tickets are available through the Actors Workshop Theatre box office and Kamloops Live box office.

STONE COLD STUNNER

By David Friend CANADIAN PRESS

The company said revenue grew 10.7 per cent to $898.5 million from $811.6 million. Caira said the company remains in the middle of a highly competitive environment for food-service items. Working against it are cheaper alternatives like McDonald’s and the wider range of coffee flavours offered by Starbucks and Second Cup. “I don’t see the climate changing,’’ he said. “There is very little to no growth in this industry. We happen to be the biggest player in this industry.’’ Quarterly operating income fell 1.8 per cent to $147.8 million, in part because of the Cold Stone Creamery

de-branding and also by the decision to close some underperforming U.S. restaurants, which cost $6.6 million. During the quarter, same-store sales grew 1.6 per cent in Canada as customers spent more money at registers. But, the number of transactions at stores open for at least 13 months declined, though the overall transactions were propped up by new locations that opened. Operating income in the Canadian segment was down 2.3 per cent to $165.5 million, largely because of the Cold Stone Creamery decision. Its U.S. segment saw a 3.1 per cent increase

Next year’s flu vaccine will be familiar By Helen Branswell CANADIAN PRESS

Next winter’s flu vaccine will be a rare repeat of this year’s formula. Experts who advise the World Health Organization have recommended no change for the vaccine for the Northern Hemisphere winter of 20142015 at a meeting this week in Geneva. Flu viruses mutate often and it is common to have to change several of the viruses included in the vaccine from one year to the next. However, analysis of viruses collected from around the world shows there haven’t been any major changes. Dr. Nancy Cox of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said that will make the

job of producing the vaccine easier for manufacturers, who know how to maximize growth of these viruses. But, Cox added, holding pat for one year may make things tough for the following year because, by that point, there may be multiple changes needed. “Next time could be very challenging. Several different

components could change,’’ said Cox, who heads the CDC’s influenza division and took part in the strain selection meeting. This committee of experts meets twice a year, in February to select the vaccine viruses for the following Northern Hemisphere winter and in September to do the same for the Southern Hemisphere. Depending on the manufacturer, flu vaccines contain three or four components. The standard vaccine protects against three strains of flu viruses, two influenza As — an H1N1 and an H3N2 — and one of two families of influenza B viruses. In recent years, some manufacturers have started to make a four-component, or quadravalent, vaccine, which contains the two influenza As and the two B viruses.

in same-store sales, but produced an operating loss of $1.1 million, down from a year-earlier operating profit of $2.4 million. Tim Hortons also announced a partnership with CIBC for a Visa credit card that accumulates Tim Hortons loyalty rewards points redeemable at its stores. The card will be available in May, the companies said in a joint announcement. The company also plans to expand its single-serve Keurig K-Cups and Tassimo T-discs into grocery stores this year. For investors, Tim Hortons said its dividend will increase six cents to 32 cents per share, payable on March 18. It also renewed its share buyback program, which gives the company the ability, but not the obligation, to spend up to $440 million to buy back shares from the public market for

cancellation. Under its 2013 normal course issuer bid, the company bought back the maximum allowable 15,239,531 shares at an average price of $59.88 each — about $912.5 million in total.

VERY.CA

Doughnuts and ice cream weren’t the best combination for Tim Hortons, after all. Several years after the unusual pairing was first launched, the coffee chain is pulling the Cold Stone Creamery brand from its Canadian restaurants as part of bigger changes that have included removing about 24 items from the menu since last fall. Tim Hortons Inc. chief executive Marc Caira outlined the changes during the company’s year-end financial results conference call on Thursday, Feb. 29, while further details of the fiveyear strategy will be unveiled at an investor conference on Tuesday, Feb. 25. It’s part of the chain’s plan to make its service faster and the customer experience easier — a move it hopes will also boost profits. “We will continue to act decisively and make tough decisions where necessary to position our company for profit-

able growth,’’ Caira said in a quarterly conference call with analysts. He said removing the Cold Stone ice cream serving bars from stores will give many locations space to add express beverage lines. The decision to wind down Cold Stone’s presence in Canada cost Tim Hortons about $19 million in the fourth quarter. The partnership with the American dairy chain, which began in 2009, will continue in U.S. Tim Hortons locations. On Thursday, Tim Hortons reported fourth-quarter profits grew marginally to $100.6 million from $100.3 million a year earlier. Earnings increased by four cents per share to 69 cents, which fell below analyst estimates of 77 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters. The per-share profit increase was stronger because the number of shares outstanding decreased by 5.6 per cent over the 12-month period as the company bought back its own shares.

SPECIAL TO KTW

I

N DEBATES OR discussions about the existence of God, I’m often asked, “What if you’re wrong and there really is a God?â€? These questioners, who assume that God belief is of ultimate importance, are perhaps unknowingly applying Blaise Pascal’s 17th-century attempt to defend Christian belief with logic. In his PensĂŠes, Pascal said, “If there is a God, he is infinitely incomprehensible, since, having neither parts nor limits, he has no affinity to us. “We are then incapable of knowing either what he is or if he is.â€? Pascal should have stopped there, but he didn’t, and concluded it’s safer to believe in God because of what became known as Pascal’s Wager: If God does not exist, we will lose nothing by believing in him but, if God does exist, we will lose everything by not believing. This argument is seriously flawed. First, Pascal assumes people can simply choose or will themselves to believe in a god — or a tooth fairy. Second, Pascal acknowledges we can’t know anything about an incomprehensible deity, but assumes a god who exists would reward believers with eternal bliss and punish non-believers with eternal damnation. Moreover, it would be a god who either could not distinguish

GLOBAL VIEWS

It’s all about abrupt climate change T HIS IS NOT how it was supposed to happen. The standard climate-change predictions said people in the tropics and the sub-tropics would be badly hurt by global warming long before people living in the temperate zones, farther away from the equator, were feeling much pain at all. That was unfair because it was the people of the rich countries in the temperate zone — North America, Europe and Japan, mainly — who industrialized early and started burning large amounts of fossil fuel as long as two centuries ago. That’s how they got rich. Their emissions of carbon dioxide over the years account for 80 per cent of the greenhouse gases of human origin that are now in the atmosphere, causing the warming — yet they get hurt least and last. Well, what did you expect? The gods of climate are almost certainly sky gods— and sky gods are never fair. But, they have always liked jokes, especially cruel ones, and they have come up with a great one this time. The people of the temperate zones are going to get hurt early, after all, but not by gradual warming. Their weather is just going to get more and more extreme: Heat waves, blizzards and flooding on an unprecedented scale. “In 2012, we had

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH the second wettest winter on record and this winter is a one-in-250years event,” British opposition leader Ed Milliband told the Observer newspaper. “If you keep throwing the dice and you keep getting sixes, then the dice are loaded. Something is going on.” The “something” is abrupt climate change. In Britain, it’s an unprecedented series of great storms blowing in off the North Atlantic, dropping enormous amounts of rain and causing disastrous floods. In the United States and Canada, it’s huge blizzards, icestorms and record low temperatures that last much longer and reach much farther south than normal. Welcome to the “temperate” zone of the Northern Hemisphere. There have been extremes in the temperate parts of the Southern Hemisphere, too. Australia has just had the hottest year ever, with record-breaking heat waves and severe bush fires. Argentina had one of its worst-ever heat waves in December and parts of Brazil had record rainfall, floods

and landslides. But, that is probably just the result of gradual, relentless warming. The abrupt changes seem to be mainly in the Northern Hemisphere. Geography may explain the differences. There isn’t all that much land in the southern temperate zone and the vast expanses of ocean that surround it moderate land temperatures. Moreover, the polar jet stream in the Southern Hemisphere simply circles the Antarctic continent and does not operate over land, whereas the northern polar jet stream flows right across North America and Europe. And it’s the jet stream that matters. The extreme weather trend in North America and Europe is less than five years old, so the science that might explain exactly what is happening is still quite tentative. The first hypothesis that sounded plausible, published in 2012 in Geophysical Letters, blamed a slowing of the Northern Hemisphere’s polar jet stream. The paper, Evidence linking Arctic amplification to extreme weather in midlatitudes, was written by Jennifer Francis of Rutgers University and Stephen Vavrus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The authors’ methodology has been challenged by other climate scientists but, I think, in the end, Francis and Vavrus will turn out to

be largely right. That is not good news. They start with the fact the Arctic has been warming faster than anywhere else on Earth, so the difference in temperature between the Arctic air mass and the air over the temperate zone has been shrinking. Since that difference in temperature is what drives the jet stream that flows along the boundary between the two air masses, a lower difference means a slower jet stream. Now, a fast jet stream travels in a pretty straight line around the planet from west to east, just as a mountain stream goes pretty straight downhill. A slower jet stream, however, meanders like a river crossing a flood plain — and the big loops it makes extend much farther south and north than when it moves fast. In a big southerly loop, you will have Arctic air much farther south than usual, while there will be relatively warm air from the temperate air mass in a northerly loop that extends up into the Arctic. Moreover, the slower-moving jet stream tends to get stuck, so a given kind of weather — snow, rain or heat — will stay longer over the same area. Hence the polarvortex winter in North America this year, record snowfalls in Japan in 2012 and again this winter, lethal

Coquihalla reopens — but travel not recommended Heavy snowfall on the Coquihalla Highway this week led to a small avalanche near the summit — which, in turn, led to the closure of the route for 24 hours as crews undertook avalanche-control work. The main highway between Kamloops and the Coast has been hammered this winter with significant snowfall, resulting in successive closures due to bad

weather, accidents and avalanche danger. The Coquihalla was closed Tuesday night (Feb. 18) and did not reopen until 7 p.m. the following night. Even though the highway reopened, travel was not recommended into last night due to severe winter conditions. Updates are online at drivebc.ca.

heat waves in the eastern U.S. in 2012 and floods in Britain this winter. “They’ve been pummelled by storm after storm this winter [in Britain],” Francis said at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Chicago this month. “It’s been amazing what’s going on and it’s because the pattern this winter has been stuck in one place ever since early December.” There’s no particular reason to think that it will move on soon, either.

Discovering India’s spiritual soul:

V aranas aranasi

by Margaret Deefholts SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

I

N THE PRE-DAWN CHILL OF February, we walk the F b lk along l h bbanks k off the river Ganges. The eastern sky, swathed in a chiffon-like mist, is pale mauve, but the waters below our boat are dark and mysterious. The morning air smells of wood smoke, cow dung, spices and marigold flowers. Just beyond the ghat steps, a blind beggar sings plaintively. We are in Benares — now known as Varanasi — a city which embodies the spiritual soul of India and whose beginnings over 2,500 years ago are steeped in Hindu mythology. The Ganges — or Mother Ganga — India’s holiest river, flows past Varanasi in the course of a 2,600-mile journey — from the remote fastness of the Himalayas, across the fertile northern plains of India, to the Bay of Bengal. The Ganges is a paradox, both beneficent and destructive by turns. It provides sustenance for millions of people who live along its banks, but it also inflicts merciless flood damage during the monsoons. At Varanasi, it is polluted by raw sewage

and charred, putrefying human and animal remains which swirl and float on its surface. Yet, for thousands of Hindu pilgrims who come here daily to bathe, to chant devotional hymns and scoop its waters in their palms to drink it like a libation libation, it is a river as pure and ancient as their faith. Our boatmen take up their oars and as we pull away from the shore, our guide Ashok invites us to join him in a mantra to the dawn. We hold small clay cups filled with lighted wicks, and at the appropriate moment we set them afloat on the breast of the river. They stream away like a procession of tiny exclamation points, bobbing on the dark waters. It is a moment as sacred as the hush in a vaulted cathedral. The sky grows lighter and the mist begins to dispel. Brazening over the horizon, a blood-orange sun turns the river molten and suffuses the city in a golden sheen. As they have done for millennia — devotees gathered at the waters’ edge burst into chanting, their cymbals, drums and conch shells exuberantly heralding the gift of a new day. The ghats become a shifting pointillist painting, dotted with thousands of people — women bathing fully attired in colorful saris, muscular men stripped to G-strings performing yoga exercises, naked fakirs (holy men) in pretzel-like poses of meditation, pot-bel-

lied businessmen clad in white loin-cloths, dipping into the waters. Vendors selling chai, cold drinks and hotgram weave through the crowds. Further upstream, washerwomen exchange gossip and banter while whacking garments against the stone steps and laying them out to dry like patchwork quilts at the water’s edge. Varanasi is a city that celebrates death like no other city in India. For a Hindu to die in Benares and to be cremated here on the banks of the Ganga is to be absolved of karma, freed from the wheel of reincarnation and absorbed into the infinite. As we approach the somber Marnikarnika burning ghat, we stow away our cameras and video equipment, as photography is prohibited. Sandalwood fires glow and grey smoke smudges the sky. White clad figures-priests and male members of the family surround the pyres. No weeping here — this would retard the soul in its journey to fuse with the Ultimate. The ashes will be scattered onto the waters of the Ganges. We disembark at the main Dasaswamedh Ghat steps and, from the austerity of death, we are plunged into seething life — the lanes of the old city. Some of these are no wider than two

people walking abreast and we shoulder our way past goats, stray dogs dozing in the shade and phlegmatic cud-chewing holy cows. The lanes are honey-combed by stalls carpets, Varanasi brocade saris saris, selling silk carpets fine-spun gold jewelry as well as flower garlands, vegetables, fruit and spices. Sadhus, mendicants, vendors and citizens churn against bemused looking tourists. The clamor and smell of humanity throngs the senses. Later, as dusk creeps over the city, we attend the mystical Aarti ceremony on the banks of the sacred river where, to the haunting notes of the shenai and ringing of bells, priests on rose petal strewn platforms chant an evening mantra to Mother Ganga. The incense from the burning lamps mingle with the scent of marigolds and dust in a shimmering mirage-like scene of spiritual worship. Like India itself, Varanasi is paradoxical. It is mystical and mundane. Harmonious and discordant. Fascinating and repulsive. A place where the pulse of eternity throbs to the rhythm of an ancient culture.

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes.
