places where people live,” Zacharias explained in an interview with the Times Review. “This is really about looking at upstream prevention. For me, what was cool about this was really connecting the dots – saying this is what we’re doing, but connecting it … to the health and well-being of our citizens.” The 29-page report can only be touched upon briefly here, but we’re embedding it with this story online at revelstoketimesreview. com It’s a facts-, figures- and statistics-heavy report that inventories all kinds of health-related information, such as available recreation options, food-related information, socio-economic data, mental

Bill Bennett, Minister of Energy and Mines, announced Mar. 13 that the province will continue the Columbia River Treaty (CRT) and try to negotiate improvements to the treaty from within its existing framework. The decision comes with the deadline of September when either side in the agreement can give the required 10-year notice to terminate substantial portions of the treaty or end it entirely in 2024, the 60-year lifespan of the original treaty’s time frame. The decision to continue with the treaty includes 14 principles intended to guide B.C. in any discussions on the future of the CRT between Canada and the United States. The announcement comes after a two-year review of the 50-year-old treaty between Canada and the US, with the province of B.C. acting as Canada’s representative and the US Entity made up of the US Corps of Engineers and the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) representing the U.S. “We believe continuing the Columbia River Treaty while exploring how improvements could benefit both countries is the best strategy moving forward for B.C., Canada, and the United States,” said Bennett in a media release. “The consultations that have included various levels of government, stakeholder groups, First Nations, and the public have helped ensure the future of the treaty will be shaped by the people it impacts.” Kootenay West MLA, Katrine Conroy, is the NDP’s opposition critic for the Columbia River Treaty but, in this case, she is not being so critical. “This is a good thing,” said Conroy. “You won’t hear this much in my political career but the minister and I agree on this. “I think it’s better to work within the treaty and improve upon it. We gave up far more than we gained in the treaty, they gained a huge socioeconomic boost, to their tourism, agriculture, flood control, all this on top of the hydro. It’s pretty amazing what you can do when you have control of the flow. “This is a good start and we have to be tough in negotiations but I think we’re in a strong position. I’m glad the ministry has let the federal government know the direction they want to go with this and I think the citizens will support it.” Bennett said the province would try to convince the U.S. government it is a fair deal. B.C. gets “downstream benefits” worth between $100 and $300 million a year from the treaty, and the U.S. has suggested that is too much. “We believe, with all due respect to the U.S., that if all of the benefits in the U.S. are identified and valued, that in fact Canada probably does not receive enough,” Bennett said Thursday. “There hasn’t been a major flood in the U.S. since the Canadian dams were constructed,” Bennett said. “Before the Canadian dams were constructed, there were some horrible floods causing loss of life and billions of dollars of damage. So the treaty was negotiated 50 years ago on the basis of producing power and controlling floods.” The review process included numerous community consultation sessions held throughout the Columbia Basin to discuss the impacts of the

Project seeks community health improvement Revelstoke and Area Healthy Community Project wants to improve community health and ease burden on health care system AARON ORLANDO

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

When it comes to preventable health issues, whose responsibility is your own personal health? Whose responsibility is our community’s health? Many might answer the burden rests with the individual to take basic steps like maintaining a healthy diet, getting exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, practicing moderation in lifestyle, health selfeducation and generally striving for health. But when we don’t, and we run into chronic, preventable health issues, the responsibility to pay for the consequences falls on the health care system – which we all pay for. A few years back, the B.C.

Ministry of Health set out to better coordinate their efforts to control “upstream” health, embarking on several initiatives designed to improve health at the community level and, therefore, control the financial burden preventable illnesses place on the health care system. Locally, the offshoot is the Revelstoke and Area Healthy Community Project, a new report completed by City of Revelstoke Social Development Coordinator Jill Zacharias and the city’s Social Development Committee. The report’s goal is to find out what the community – Revelstoke – can be doing to positively affect health outcomes. “The health authorities do health care; they can’t control the

Home propane rates up significantly in Revelstoke starting April 1 Cost for average home propane user to jump by $215 per year Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Revelstoke residents are facing a big increase in propane rates starting on April 1. Propane supplier For-

tisBC announced on Mar. 14 that the cost would go up $4.29 per gigajoule. They explain that adds up to a $215 per year increase for an average customer using 50 GJ per year. Check your bill – if you use more than that,

you could be facing bigger increases. “Propane prices have increased significantly this winter. The persistent and extreme cold weather in the eastern parts of Canada and the U.S. has resulted in increased continen-

tal demand for propane,” said Cynthia Des Brisay, vice-president of energy supply and resource development. “Furthermore, prior to the start of the cold weather, increased propane demand by farmers for crop drying lowered inventories going into the winter. The combination of these fac-

tors has led to extremely high propane prices.” In a statement, Fortis said propane prices are also more directly influenced by global oil markets than natural gas. “In recent years, natural gas prices have trended much lower relative to propane due to increased supply availability resulting from advancements in production technology,” the statement explained. “However propane prices have remained more closely connected to oil prices and have experienced much tighter markets due to increased demand and less infrastructure connecting supply to market. This has increased the premium paid for propane over natural gas prices.” Revelstoke is an anomaly amongst communities in B.C. that are typically supplied with natural gas; for its gas supply, Revelstoke relies on propane that is shipped into large holding tanks.

Big Eddy School property sale on hold as Big Eddy Waterworks District deals with Interior Health water safety concerns Regulatory changes in 2013 mean Big Eddy Waterworks District needs to do mapping, year-long hydrology study before school property sale can go ahead. The study raises the possibility of need for filtration system, or other costly upgrades the water district will have difficulty financing because the entity can’t borrow money. It’s only a possibility now, but the manager-trustee said City of Revelstoke could end up owning the system. Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

A proposed subdivision of the old Big Eddy School site is already triggering significant changes to the Big Eddy Waterworks District, and could potentially lead to City of Revelstoke annexation of the independent system. Although that outcome is far from certain, what seems clear is the independent waterworks in the Big Eddy is at a crossroads, prompted by the school district’s development application. The series of events leading to the change is complex; follow along with me for a simplified explanation. As you may know, the Revelstoke School District is planning to sell the Big Eddy School property for development, then hand over the proceeds to the B.C. Ministry of Education. The sale of the Big Eddy School and Mountain View school properties was part of a deal with the provincial Ministry of Education, a condition of funding the new Revelstoke Secondary School and Begbie View Elementary School. Last year, the school district took significant steps to disburse both properties, including hiring consultants to develop possible subdivision concepts for the Big Eddy School location. Now, those development plans have hit a snag with the Interior Health Authority (IH). At a Mar. 15 Revelstoke School District board meeting, superintendent Mike Hooker explained plans were on hold indefinitely after IH flagged concerns with the independent Big Eddy Waterworks District system. In what he described as a “big update,” Hooker explained the concerns mean plans can’t move forward until IH gives its blessing for the development. “Right now the timeline shows a full

stop,” Hooker told the board. Interior Health’s concerns are multifaceted, but focus on potential surface contamination by viruses of the groundwater source, which is an aquifer accessed by a well that’s over 250 feet deep. Don Hall is the manager-trustee of the Big Eddy Waterworks District. He oversees the waterworks system that was completed in 1980 – largely by BC Hydro – an offshoot of the construction of the Revelstoke Dam. Hall assured system users that the system is safe and fine the way it is – they test the water regularly in excess of legislated requirements and haven’t had any issues with contamination. The test results for contaminants like minerals, chemicals and microbes all check out and are safe, under allowable thresholds, he told the Times Review. The issue at hand is a change to water and health regulations that came into effect in 2013, which effectively changed the Big Eddy Waterworks District (BEWD) from a ‘small’ system designation to a ‘large’ one, Hall said. Under the old rules, a system with under 300 hook-ups was categorized as small; the new rules say one with 750 ‘users’ is now a large system – that means BEWD. The new designation means more bureaucracy, which include a mapping requirement and the need for a hydrology study. That hydrology study is the main hold-up affecting the BEWD. It requires a professional hydrologist and takes at least a year of field study, so the performance of the aquifer can be studied over a full annual cycle. Hall also said IH has concerns about an artesian that is springing up near one of the two wells that access the aquifer. Artesians are, literally, water bubbling up through the ground. They

are caused by positive pressure in the aquifer. The hydrology is complex; IH’s concern is the cause of the pressure may be surface water, which also means potential contamination. Hall said the BEWD has completed two studies of the aquifer in the past; both said the aquifer is contained. And that’s the hold-up with the school district’s land disbursement plan; until that study is completed, submitted to IH and approved, IH isn’t going to give their OK. “Our system has been in place since 1980,” Hall told the Times Review. “We had no problems supplying the school district with water. Interior Health is forcing my hand.” Hall said the water system is only at about 25 per cent capacity, and could support lots more development if needed. Hall explained the BEWD is working with a Vernon-based hydrologist to complete the study. He has concerns about the outcome of the study. It could very well trigger a

requirement for filtering at the surface, which is an expensive proposition. It wouldn’t be as much as the multi-million dollar Revelstoke treatment plant in Greeley, Hall said, but it would likely be too much for the BEWD to handle. Under provincial regulations, BEWD isn’t allowed to borrow money for capital projects. All work is paid for by its users, and significant capital projects – like a new filtration system – require a referendum. Although a new filtration system is a hypothetical at this point, it could amount to hundreds per user – something that would struggle to pass a water district users’ referendum. In a democratic ballot, district users could decide the school district’s interest isn’t in their interest. Another option, Hall explained, is to hand over the system to the City of Revelstoke, who can borrow money for capital projects. Both of these scenarios – annexation and a new filtration system – are, at this point, hypothetical outcomes.

Interior Health is also pushing longterm requirements on the improvement of the Big Eddy Waterworks District system, including the need to develop plans for improvements to the aging wells, reservoir and distribution system. Key to this requirement is a demonstration the water provider has the funds to carry on the improvements. When contacted for comment, Interior Health provided a statement explaining their current concerns: “In the current state, Interior Health has concerns with the ability of Big Eddy Waterworks to provide for safe tap water in the long term.  These concerns relate to aging infrastructure, the need for long term planning for maintenance and/or replacement of the system and the ability to fund the necessary changes required.” They continued: “Based on these concerns, Interior Health does not support further development within the Big Eddy Waterworks at this time.” The IH spokesperson also insisted that they didn’t have the authority to approve or deny applications, saying that was up to the City of Revelstoke. The Times Review requested information from IH on Friday, which they provided for our Monday deadline. We contacted the City of Revelstoke on Monday, but the Director of Development Services was away from the office, and other city staff weren’t available for immediate comment. The Times Review has also requested a December health inspection report on the water system from Interior Health, but it also wasn’t available by press time. It’s likely that the issue will be considered again during public processes as it develops in the coming weeks, months and years. The Times Review will also follow up in the coming weeks with further perspectives.

There seems to be some mixed signals about drinking alcohol while pregnant. Some stories have said it was OK in moderation but the best advice on this one is to not drink any alcohol while pregnant. Many thousands of children in Canada are born yearly with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome which causes a range of problems from physical disabilities to brain damage. Pregnancy and alcohol do not mix.

Here’s a suggestion about alcohol and pregnancy: The decision to have a child is usually a mutuallyagreed decision between husband and wife. They both want the healthiest child possible. To this end, the husband can support his wife by also abstaining from alcohol for the term of the pregnancy.

Premier’s patronage appointment reversed

MLA REPORT

BY NORM MACDONALD Last week, as I began to think of what I would say in my next MLA report, I thought I would talk about the importance of the Legislature to the democratic process.  And I would talk about the ways the government has lessened the effectiveness of the Legislature over time. But this week, as I actually put pen to paper, I have a perfect example of why the

government has worked so hard to keep the Legislature from sitting; why this government wants to avoid the scrutiny of the Opposition. You will likely have heard this story already.  On March 12, the Justice Minister announced that a former BC Liberal cabinet minister would be paid $140,000 to co-chair a committee to review earthquake preparedness, in addition to a number of well-paid patronage appointments he has already received.  As you can imagine, the Opposition cried foul as there is absolutely no benefit to the taxpayer with this appointment; this was simply a way to funnel taxpayers’ money into the hands of a BC Liberal friend. Because the Legislature was in session, and the Premier would have to face the Opposition in Question Period, Christy Clark quickly cancelled the contract.  It was clear that the only thing that caused

her to backtrack was a vocal opposition using all the tools of the Legislature and direct access to the Legislative Press Gallery.  If the House had not been in session, she would have got away with it. So even though much has been done by the BC Liberals to remove themselves from the scrutiny of the Opposition, it was wonderful to see that even with a reduced legislative session the democratic system that elects both government and opposition members to the Legislature worked in this case. And it proves that when we see injustice, we must not remain silent.  As citizens, we are responsible for defending our democracy.  We must speak out when the government takes action that is not in the best interest of the people they are supposed to represent. Norm Macdonald is the MLA for Columbia River—Revelstoke.

Columbia River Treaty is a Silent Spring in B.C. Editor, The Columbia River Treaty: Silent Spring in British Columbia The year 1964: heart attacks, death, two years for the smoke to clear as 2,300 of us were forced from our homes and farms. Tens of thousands of mammals drowned or starved to death. 266,518 acres of our very best valley bottoms submerged, extensive old growth forest drowned as it stood. That was half a century ago when the Columbia River Treaty dams were constructed to impounded water in vast industrial reservoirs “on call” for the U.S. Today, the legacy behind these dams is a virtual dead zone within a local climate gone awry. With the riparian area destroyed and the river’s ability to seasonally charge and release its nutrient load denied, gone are the insects, birds, bats, mammals,

Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market to stay in Grizzly Plaza, likely expand Organizers of vintage car tour, farm and craft market asked to compromise, split Grizzly Plaza during May 17 market. Plan to move the farmers market to Campbell Avenue wilts under opposition, practical constraints, but organizers earn concession that may allow them to expand into parking lot by plaza gazebo Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Despite the controversy, members of the City of Revelstoke’s Parks, Recreation and Culture committee found themselves with an enviable problem at their Mar. 11 meeting; two different community organizations want to fill downtown with visitors on the May 17–18 weekend, so many it’s a challenge to shoehorn them all in. As a result of the somewhat controversial Mar. 11 meeting, organizers of the Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market have called off plans to move to Campbell Avenue in front of the BC Liquor Store. Market organizers submitted the plan to city Parks, Recreation and Culture department officials in the fall of 2013 after a perceived snub would have forced the Saturday market out of Grizzly Plaza on May 17 to make way for a vintage car show. Organizers said that prompted them to find a permanent solution to cramped conditions in Grizzly Plaza. At the Mar. 11 parks committee meeting, all parties gathered to try to hash out a solution. Parks director Laurie Donato said a communication error started the issue. A parks staff member, who was not advised properly, emailed market organizers to tell them they couldn’t use Grizzly Plaza during the May 17 car show. Donato said there was “miscommunication in the wording. It was a wrong choice in words, I think, when that email went out.” She added: “It wasn’t explained well to the staff person who sent it out.” Donato explained the intent had been to explain there is a potential conflict between the two events, with a view to working through the scheduling conflict. Vintage car show organizer Dennis Berarducci said the Revelstoke Vintage Car Club needs the plaza to host about 20 of the marquee vehicles coming for the big show. He noted it wasn’t a reg-

ular Revelstoke club show ‘n’ shine, but a prestigious provincial vintage car tour held in conjunction with the Vintage Car Club of Canada, and that 140 cars are already registered at $350 a pop. Some of the cars scheduled for showing in the plaza are valued at over $1 million, he said. “The May tour is the largest car show in B.C. and it’s an honour to be asked to host it,” Berarducci said, noting it’s the first time in decades that Revelstoke has been honoured with the opportunity to host. The May 16–19 event will include museum tours, wine and cheese parties, special car displays, the Saturday show ‘n’ shine, a drive across the Revelstoke Dam and a gondola tour at RMR. Berarducci said three local hotels are already booked up. “This is a very, very big event. It’s a one-shot deal; it’s not a carry-over until next year.” And showcasing the best cars in Grizzly Plaza is the organizers’ intent. Tamaralee Nelles joined other Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market organizers at the Mar. 11 meeting. She said the idea to move to Campbell Avenue had since fallen out of favour. For one, there isn’t an adequate power supply there. In addition, other groups have objected to the move. Revelstoke Fire Rescue Services objected because Campbell Avenue is the route fire trucks use to get to Victoria Road. Also, the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce listed several concerns in a letter to the parks committee. Nelles explained the market doesn’t have enough extra vendors to extend up Mackenzie Avenue to Second Street, so they’d like to expand into the parking lot next to the gazebo in Grizzly Plaza, where the public washrooms are located. As for the May 17 weekend, committee chairperson Gary Starling asked the two parties to hash it out directly. “I think there is a workable solution and a com-

ACC alpine camp near Revelstoke Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) is hosting their annual General Mountaineering Camp from a basecamp near Frenchman Cap, located in the Monashee Mountains north of Revelstoke. In operation since 1906, the annual mountaineering camp rotates between different, often new locations each year. In 2014, they’ll host a maximum of 31 participants per week over a five-week camp, said ACC programs director Chelsea Selinger. Known as the Matterhorn of the Monashees, the imposing, cap-like peak is easily viewed from Highway 23 North starting about 15 kilometres past the Revel-

stoke Dam. Selinger said the ACC chose the location after a helicopter flyover. “There was a lot of interest in our General Mountaineering Camp committee,” she said. “It just looked like there was a really nice spot to a base camp [and] cool and unique climbing in the area.” No road-building or permanent structures are associated with the fly-in tent camp. In addition to camp staff, the participants range from beginners taking an introductory mountaineering course to experienced mountaineers setting out to advanced objectives. The camp runs from mid-July to midAugust.

The City of Revelstoke’s Parks, Recreation and Culture committee has asked the Revelstoke Vintage Car Club and Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market organizers to find a solution to a scheduling conflict that has a prestigious vintage car show and the market booked in Grizzly Plaza on May 17.

promise,” he said. The idea of splitting the market between vintage cars and the market was discussed. It was also suggested extending the market into the parking lot for that

weekend would be a good trial run. The committee left it up to the two groups to seek a compromise in the next week or so. The permanent expansion of the

Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market was discussed, but no recommendation came out of the meeting.

No smoke detectors ‘alarming’ Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Revelstoke Fire Rescue Services responded to three different house fires on Mar. 8, including two residences with inadequate smoke detectors. Here is a summary of the incidents: — At 1:50 a.m. Revelstoke Fire Res-

cue Services responded to a structure fire in the 500 block of Moss Street. “Upon arrival fire crews entered the basement area and quickly extinguished the fire, located at the electrical panel contained within the house,” said Fire Chief Rob Girard in a statement. “The six renters of the residence were out of the building when fire crews first arrived on scene. What is alarming

www.revelstoketimesreview.com

about this fire is that there were no working smoke alarms. “The outcome of this fire could have been much different,” Girard said. It took 18 fire personnel just under an hour to overhaul the fire. Girard said the fire was electrical in nature. —Firefighters were back in action at 11:33 a.m., responding to a 911 call from the 1800-block of Illinisky Road. Girard said the roof fire was caused by

snow sliding off the roof; it ripped off the main electrical service wire, causing an arc fire on the roof. The residence had working smoke detectors. —At 10:20 p.m., firefighters responded to a 911 call from a resident in the 1100block of Douglas Street. “Upon arrival Fire Crews quickly extinguished the chimney fire by laddering the roof and using a chimney nozzle,” Girard said.

The owner of the home was injured when he attempted to climb on the roof and fight the fire himself. He suffered burns to his feet and was transported to Queen Victoria Hospital for treatment. Girard reported that only one of three smoke detectors in the house was working at the time. Fire Chief Rob Girard urged residents to install smoke detectors and test them regularly to ensure they’re working properly.

City budget passes with two votes against AARON ORLANDO

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The City of Revelstoke adopted its 2014–2018 financial plan – more popularly known as the budget – at a Mar. 11 regular meeting.  The budget calls for a two-percent increase in residential property taxes and bumps up  business taxes by one per cent. Light industry will increase by two per cent and major industry will jump by 4.25 per cent. For a Revelstoke home valued at $500,000, taxes will increase about $44. A business property valued the same will increase by $92. The budget increases utility rates. In 2014, water utility rates will jump by 10.1 per cent and sewer rates will increase by 4.4 per cent. The sewer frontage tax will double from $0.70 to $1.40 in order to raise funds for capital projects. The City of Revelstoke’s total operating expenses for 2014 are budgeted at $21,074,107. Two councillors voted against the budget at the meeting – councillors Linda Nixon and Tony Scarcella. The Times Review contacted them to learn about their issues with the budget.  Both councillors said senior administration positions needed to be trimmed, but each called for different solutions.  Coun. Linda Nixon called for a hiring freeze at city hall, saying the city could go without replacing the Director of Corporate Administration and Communication. The position was vacated in early January when the director resigned abruptly after fewer than 90 days on the job.   “I thought the opportunity was there to freeze our management staff and run with what we have,” Nixon told the Times Review. Nixon said that despite her vote against, she was more or less content with the budget: “I actually thought it was a fair budget otherwise.” Nixon said it’s key that the City of Revelstoke builds reserve funds so it has money available to match any provincial or federal funding that may come down the pike.  Coun. Tony Scarcella also presented a plan to reduce senior administration. He felt the Public Works department could be amalgamated with the Parks, Recreation and Culture department, eliminating administration jobs in the process.  Scarcella said the city is small enough to make the changes workable.  “I fully believe that we could save a lot of money if we have just one department,” he said. Scarcella also pointed to the

infrastructure deficit in the community. He wondered why we budget for infrastructure projects, yet they don’t seem to get done.  “Spending goes up every year and no infrastructure’s being addressed,” he said. “If we don’t address the infrastrucutre, we’ll be [all] debt. We postpone and postpone and we leave it for our younger generation. That’s my concern.” Scarcella said his comments have been echoed on “raise spending and raise tax; there’s nothing different.” There was little discussion of the budget at the Mar. 11 meeting.

CITY WANTS TO TAKE REVELSTUCK LEAD A major highway closure on Jan. 2 led to a backlog of travellers in Revelstoke during our winter high season, stranding many without a place to stay in the already bookedout winter tourism peak. It came just two days after the City of Revelstoke ended its contract with its emergency management coordinator, and the city’s response came under fire from many sectors soon after. The emergency response was poorly coordinated and was barely communicated. The crisis brought out the best and worst in Revelstoke; hotels net-

network to make housing available for stranded travellers when required.” It calls for collaborations with other community organizations, such as the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce. The plan also asks staff to explore keeping the sani-dump open all year round, noting it’s needed during crises, and there have been incidents of people dumping there illegally.

DEVELOPMENT REVIEW COMMITTEE DISBANDED Revelstoke City Council has disbanded the city’s Development Review Committee, which reviewed certain development application proposals. A new process will see all developments under $100,000 referred to staff, while proposals over $100,000 will be referred to city council for review. The change follows restructuring that amalgamated the former Planning department into the new Development Services department in 2013. Committee chairperson and city councillor Linda Nixon agreed with the changes. The last item of business before the former committee was a pro-

Revelstoke Theatre Company presents The Dumb Waiter Descend into the drama room for a staging of Harold Pinter’s 1960 absurdist work Ana Pollo

Special to the Revelstoke Times Review

Entering the high school for a performance usually means having a seat in the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre. The Revelstoke Theatre Company will present The Dumb Waiter in the intimate little black room just down the stairs from the RPAC. Entering the performance space, I immediately felt that live performance energy; it’s certainly a more appropriate venue for the close and claustrophobic one-room setting for one of British drama titan Harold Pinter’s most acclaimed works. When I arrive, the actors already in the space and in character – a deliberate, unsettling tool deployed by director Anita Hallewas. A poet, playwright and political activist, Pinter is known for absurdist theatre – a style based on the philosophy that humans are out of tune with the universe. This makes life a meaningless and absurd experience driven simply by power struggle. In The Dumb Waiter, Pinter marries this

absurdist theme to black comedy, making light of otherwise dark or serious subject matter. It translates into two female assassins waiting for the call to murder in the basement of a cafe. They communicating in colloquial British-isms and castoff phrases. What gives this absurdist thriller its menacing atmosphere is the visceral reactions to the actors’ articulation, pauses and delivery. Even simple phrases hint at double meanings. Anna Fin and Sarah Harper star is this dark and brutishly funny one-act play. Sarah Harper, known for her last performance in the Revelstoke Theatre Company’s Fuel, delivers a great performance in a convincing British hoodlum accent. Anna Fin, a seasoned actor in theatre, TV and film, makes her debut on the Revelstoke stage with this performance. Her performance keeps the play building with inquisitive antics and a lively, reactive performance. Theatre junkies will gush, the average Joe will get a round of kicks from the amusing duelling dialogue in British accents and all will feel the suspense, as we await the assassins’ assignment. The performance is at the Revelstoke Secondary School drama room. Opening March 20–22 and 27–29 at 8 p.m. Tickets online through the Revelstoke Theatre Company, or at the front desk of Powder Springs Inn, or at the door. $10 for adults $5 for youth.

Healthy communities project seeks to boost health Healthy Communities, from p. 1 health statistics, health-related environment information and a catalogue of the “healthy built environment.” From this inventory, the committee – in consultation with the community – sought out priorities and initiatives for improving community health in Revelstoke. “It’s really good to connect all these initiatives with moving towards doing more to improve the overall health and well-being not only of individuals and families in

the community, but the community as a whole,” Zacharias said. The report identifies priorities that will have the greatest effect on community health. “No surprise, poverty reduction has come out on top,” Zacharias said. The report explores many options for dealing with poverty, and one upcoming thrust is to help residents better understand what poverty is in Revelstoke. It’s about “actively working to increase awareness of the nature of poverty in our community, and really trying to broaden that knowl-

Acc#%*ting. Now you’re talkin’

edge and community awareness of what poverty looks like in our community,” Zacharias said. Mental health and substance abuse issues are identified as other major issues. The report isn’t a City of Revelstoke document, but it does overlap significantly with city services. The “healthy built environment” section explores existing recreation infrastructure, making recommendations for improvement. It also identifies sidewalk maintenance and repair as a key priority to help kids and seniors with improved mobility. Another section touches on access to recreation opportunities, exploring programs and initiatives like subsidies that will improve access. This summary only touches on a few points in the report, which will exist as a living document in the years to come. “It’s really pulling all those pieces together,” Zacharias explained. “Sometimes the process is as exciting as the actual result, because it starts that community conversation.” The report was created through grant funding, but it doesn’t include any extra funding from the health authority for the initiatives.

RSC racers compete at Nakiska NorAm MARY CLAYTON

Special to the Revelstoke Times Review

The past week marked a very exciting step for the Revelstoke Ski Club’s FIS team members Emily Unterberger and Jamie Park. The two girls competed in their first NorAm Cup race — the highest level of competition before the World Cup. Nor-Am races are where Canada’s aspiring ski stars get the chance to compete against other up-and-coming athletes from the US and around the world. Competitors include members of Canada’s national team, Olympians and skiers with World Cup experience. The top two overall competitors in each discipline win a World Cup spot for the following season in that event. Revelstoke skiers attended the final Nor-Am Cup of the season, which was held at Nakiska, and raced slalom, GS

and Super G. “The training here in Revelstoke has been awesome so when we left for Nakiska. I was feeling great on my skis,” said Jamie Park. “The Nor-Am was a great way to gain experience racing against such talented skiers.” Team-mate Emily Unterberger echoed the sentiment. “This past week has been filled with new experiences,” she said. “Although I didn’t ski my best, it was a great experience to compare myself to some of North America’s best girls.” The next stop for the FIS team will be in Whistler at the end of the month for the National Championships and the finals of the Keurig Cup series. The skiers will be getting in lots of training at RMR to prepare for these last races of the season. The club’s U14 skiers competed in the provincial championships over the past week-

end, held at Sun Peaks Resort. Head coach Ned Lazarevic reported the younger racers held their own against a deep field of nearly 100 racers in both the girls’ and boys’ categories. “Our kids all had higher bib numbers and soft snow meant they were racing in very tough conditions,” said Coach Lazarevic. “But despite that, they did well against older competitors.” Jenna Knight and Colm Molder both had three top-15 finishes for their age categories in GS, and Colm went on to a top-10 finish for his age category in slalom. The next race for the younger athletes will be the zone finals for U12, U14 and U16 skiers, which will be held here in Revelstoke on March 29–30. Come on out, enjoy the last few days of skiing on our home mountain and cheer on our Revelstoke racers!

While you’re not looking, this is what’s happening to BC’s world renowned recycling program.

Well, lookie here. One minute you have a perfectly good Blue Box recycling program. The next, something new and rather questionable is being put in its place. And they thought they’d get away with it right under your nose, without telling you or asking your opinion. That’s definitely not democracy in action. The BC Government, elected by us to represent our best interests, has decided to offload the costs of recycling to big multi-national corporations. To implement this new plan, they’ve set up an association that doesn’t really seem to hold the environment, local jobs, or the municipalities that run the Blue Box program, close to its heart.

Perhaps that’s why some of our local elected officials are using the word “scam” to describe how the new program is being set up. It’s also perhaps why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to jump on board. That’s gotta tell you something. Now it’s your turn to let Premier Christy Clark know what you think. Contact her today to say that dismantling an already-working recycling program to replace it with something that few people think will be as good, is a bad idea.

What’s going on here?

Avalanche risk leads to cancellation of Revelstoke freeride stop Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Organizers of the Revelstoke stop of the Swatch Freeride World Tour (FWT) said avalanche danger within the scheduled Mar. 10–15 competition window forced them to cancel the Revelstoke stop of the tour. In a statement released on the evening of Mar. 10, Revelstoke Mountain Resort sales and marketing director Ashley Tait said the ski resort supported the call. “Revelstoke Mountain Resort supports the decision by the Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face event organizers to cancel the event. While the in-bound skiing at the resort is excellent, the existing avalanche conditions are wide-spread across the backcountry in western North America. Safety for the athletes and staff involved in the event con-

tinue to be a top priority.” Bryan Barlow is the FWT event director for the Americas.  “Our staff and management are committed to doing everything possible to put on world-class freeride competitions. However, this is an example of how tough decisions must be made in favour of athlete and staff safety. Fans, staff and athletes all love the venue at Revelstoke. We look forward to many future competitions here.” The cancellation came the same day as an avalanche incident in the Montana Bowl area on Mar. 10. The sidecountry skiing area is located in the Mount Mackenzie backcountry, outside of the Revelstoke Mountain Resort boundary rope. RMR ski patrollers responded to an incident just after 1 p.m. when a male skier triggered an avalanche in Montana Bowl. He was found at the

scene with his airbag deployed. Patrollers mounted a tranceiver search of the debris field – radio reports put it at about a category 3 avalanche – but turned up nothing. Rescuers were concerned about two skiers the man had seen skiing below him just prior to the incident. They were located safe not long after, so a probe-line and dog search was called off. Heavy snowfall the week before was followed by warm and wet Pineapple Express weather system over the weekend, causing heightened avalanche danger. For example, the changes sent the locally famous Greenslide avalanche on Mt. Cartier into a full path slide, which isn’t a common occurrence. The cancellation of the tour stop follows the postponement of the originally-scheduled stop here in late

December, when conditions also forced its cancellation. That time, the culprit was lack of adequate snow cover on the venue.

been tracking for many weeks remain a significant problem and areas where you might have felt safe in previous seasons may not be the best choices this winter.” Two of the recent fatal snowmobile accidents occurred in cut-blocks – areas below treeline cleared by logging companies. “Often, riding below treeline can be a safer choice in terms of avalanche danger,” explains Klassen. “But with the current warm temperatures and wet snow at low elevations, that’s not the case at this time. Riders need to be wary of avalanche terrain even near valley bottom, at least until a solid freeze occurs.” Until conditions improve, the CAC recommends travelling on small, simple, low-angle terrain with no terrain traps. Exposure to large slopes and cornices above should also be avoided whenever possible.

Canadian Avalanche Centre issues snowpack warning After four avalanche fatalities in the past six days, the Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) issued a statement Mar. 13 urging backcountry users to make cautious and conservative decisions while in avalanche terrain. “We’ve been dealt a pretty troublesome snowpack this season and our terrain choices need to reflect that fact,” explains Karl Klassen, Manager of the CAC’s Public Avalanche Warning Service. “The weak layers we’ve

Vera Weeden We regret to announce the passing of Vera Wray Weeden on March 9, 2014. Vera (nee Threatful) was born in Revelstoke. She was the second eldest daughter in a family of fifteen children. Vera attended Mount McPherson School and High School in Revelstoke. After finishing high school she moved to Kelowna, B.C where she obtained employment as a secretary-bookkeeper for a number of years. On January 18, 1939 she married Lance S. Weeden of Kelowna. They lived and worked there for a number of years. In 1956 they became self-employed in the road construction business and moved about the province until 1974. At that time, their business brought them to Revelstoke when the building of the Mica town site opened up an opportunity for summer employment and winter employment in Revelstoke, plowing snow. They retired in 1981 and in 1989 Lance and Vera celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. In October of that same year, Lance suddenly passed away. Vera joined the Revelstoke Senior Citizens Association where she volunteered as secretary for 14 years and became an honorary life member. She met Weston G. Wray and married him on May 1, 1993. They traveled and as well played Bridge together at the Seniors and took part in tournaments (bridge was one of Vera's favourite interests.) Weston G Wray passed away Dec 20, 1997. Vera's other interests were spending time with family and friends, oil painting, travelling, hunting, fishing, camping and doing volunteer work. She painted many still life and scenery works of art and became a lifetime member of the Revelstoke Art Group. Vera celebrated her 99th Birthday with her friends and family and staff Mt. Cartier Court on February the 28th. Vera was predeceased by her parents and a number of brothers and sisters. She is survived by her brother, Leonard Threatful (Stephanie) her sister, Helen Korenko both of Revelstoke and her sister, Eva Volk of Calgary and many nieces and nephews and her step family. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Revelstoke Seniors Association or to the charity of one's choice. There will be no funeral services at her request.

The Revelstoke Skating Club’s fantastic Mar. 13 showcase Our Precious Planet explored environmental themes, dividing the program into four scenes: Arctic, Oceans, Rainforest and Savanna. The exceptional show was produced and choreographed by head coach Nina Greschner, a long-time competitive and professional skater, who toured with Disney on Ice for a decade. 1. In the Rainforest scene, animals work together to stop logging activity that affects their habitat. 2. Head Coach Nina Greschner (l) and Kidskate/ Canskate coach Adreinne Schurdevin. 3. Water ripplers Cassidy Legebokow, Jaimie Reynolds and Samantha Veninsky peform in the Oceans scene. 4. The Polar Bear Pair, Megan Cottingham and Makenna Howe, perform a duet in the Arctic scene.
