TAR TREK had it right — it’s just taken years to finally cross that frontier of technology Gene Roddenberry envisioned. Musfiq Rahman is part of the generation of computer programmers and application designers who can foresee a day when people might have a chip implanted in them with all their medical history. When they might have miniature tech-

nological tags on their body that give real-time information on blood pressure, heart rate and respiration. When a nurse can wave a tablet over them and gather all kinds of medical data and send it off to other medical personnel. Rahman even sees applications that would apply to places like Wal-Mart, with wireless technology that can read tags on everything item in inventory, recording what comes in, when it comes in and when it goes out. Rahman even has

a student working on an application that could help solve some of the parking woes at Thompson Rivers University using wireless technology. He’s come a long way from his first experience with a computer at a university in his homeland of Bangladesh. Rahman’s family couldn’t afford a computer and he didn’t start to learn about them until his undergraduate year. Even then, students would have to book time to use one and

Rahman found himself sometimes surfing the worldwide web after midnight. The interest grew and Rahman eventually achieved a doctorate in computer science, with a dissertation on the security of wireless technology. “There is a lot of new wireless technology and it can be hard

The “easiest way” for a drunken man to get rid of a problem cat did not take into account the pain and suffering it would cause the animal, a provincial court judge has ruled. In Kamloops provincial court on Wednesday, Judge Chris Cleaveley found Steven Seidel guilty of the Criminal Code offence of causing unnecessary pain or suffering to an animal. Seidel was also found guilty of two counts under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, but those were stayed in favour of the more serious offence. “He [Seidel] strangled and killed the cat when he was angry,” Cleaveley said. “It was the easiest way to get rid of the cat.” Cleaveley rejected an estimate by Seidel that his unneutered male cat, named Oreo, lost consciousness in less than a minute. Cleaveley also noted the struggling cat left scratch marks on Seidel’s arms. XSee JUDGE A7

THE LONE ACTIVIST More than 32,000 people signed an Internet petition demanding “justice for Oreo,” but a lone activist watched proceedings in provincial court on Tuesday, March 18. Leanne Pentney admitted she had to leave the courtroom during some testimony and crossexamination by defence lawyer Ken Tessovitch, who questioned a veterinary expert about how, and whether, it can be determined if animals suffer pain and fear. “That got to me,” said Pentney, who is writing about the proceedings on her Facebook page, where she expects it to be highly read by friends interested in the trial. “An animal does suffer pain,” she said. Pentney said she recently had to put down two pets, ages 16 and 17, and argued pets differ from farm animals — a comparison made by Tessovitch — in the way they must be treated at end of life. “We’re to take care of them, she said. “Just like children.” Pentney said she feels little empathy for Seidel, who was convicted of one Criminal Code charge and two others under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act in connection to the death last year of his tomcat. “When you do that to a victim who can’t speak — that’s the worst,” Pentney said. The petition online at causes. com received more than 32,000 signatures. It asks the sentencing judge to give the maximum penalty under law if Seidel is found guilty and to ban him from owning pets for the rest of his life.

Gaglardis’ trial resumes on April 14 The trial of Tom and Bob Gaglardi on a number of environmental charges is slated to resume next month — likely without either of the accused in court. Bob Gaglardi, son Tom and Northland Properties Corporation, the family’s company, were charged with two counts each of harmful alteration of a fish habitat following alterations made to a Kamloops Lake property — known as “Tom’s Shack,” court heard — four years ago. The trial began in January, but did not finish in the allotted time. During the trial, court heard riprap placed on the property damaged a fish habitat. A contractor also testified he was ordered by Northland to destroy documents and throw his computer hard drive “in the lake” when federal investigators began looking into alleged improprieties on the property. Defence lawyer Rob Bruneau has admitted Northland and Tom Gaglardi are likely guilty, but not Bob Gaglardi. In January, a judge agreed to have the trial resume without either of the Gaglardis present. Tom Gaglardi is the owner of the NHL’s Dallas Stars and majority owner of the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers. Bob Gaglardi is the son of former Kamloops MLA Phil Gaglardi. The trial will resume on April 14.

Port strike hits home By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

As seen in this 2012 KTW file photo when the Kamloops Transit Garage opened on Ord Road, maintenance of the vehicles is routine. However, a recent rash of deteriorating power-steering lines has taken six of the buses off the road in recent weeks.

Baffled by bus breakdowns By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

BC Transit says it’s a “strange coincidence” that six of is buses have broken down in the past two months due to deteriorating power-steering lines. On Thursday, March 13, two of the buses broke down at the same time at the North Shore transit exchange, causing a 45-minute service delay. Another bus broke down at the exchange at an earlier date. BC Transit spokeswoman Meribeth Burton said mechanics at the Kamloops Transit Garage inspected all six buses and found the vehicles’ power-steering lines were failing from the inside out. All six buses were New Flyer models from 1998 and 1997. New Flyers make up the bulk of the city’s fleet, accounting for 36 of 46 vehicles. Burton said all 36 New Flyers have had their power-steering lines checked, but noted it’s difficult to determine if failure is likely. “We believe at this time that they are deteriorating from the inside out, so there’s no outward signs of wear,” she said. Of the six buses that broke down, only one had CITY OF

lines that showed signs of external wear and tear. Power-steering lines are checked as part of a routine bus inspection after every 5,000 kilometres. Burton said it’s not clear why the lines are failing now, but added it’s simply bad luck so many of them have stopped working at the North Shore exchange. “There’s no signs of tampering. It doesn’t seem to be a temperature issue,” she said. “It’s certainly nothing to do with location, but three of six happened on the North Shore and it’s pretty visual when you see a bus being towed.” City engineering manager Devin Matkowski, Kamloops’ transit spokesman since the departure of transit planner Erin Felker, called the bus situation “unusual, but not concerning. “It seems like it was just a freak of circumstance,” he said. In an effort to address the problem in other vehicles, Burton said transit mechanics will start replacing power-steering lines when they do standard mid-life engine replacements seven or eight years after a bus goes into service. The city is also purchasing 25 new compressed natural-gas buses to replace some of its aging fleet. The new vehicles are due to go into service in 2015.

COMMUNITY

As the B.C. government drafts back-to-work legislation, some Kamloops businesses are expressing frustration over a truck-drivers’ strike that has cost them business for several weeks. An estimated 1,400 union and non-union truckers are on strike at the port over rates, licensing and long unpaid wait time for cargo at container terminals. Peter McKenna, CEO of NRI Distribution Inc. told KTW he’s frustrated at how the trucking industry at the port has been managed for years, noting the strike is hurting his business. “It’s incredibly frustrating,” he said. “I’d rather pay more and have the government — and I’m talking the federal government, or provincial, whichever can handle it — regulate the carriers themselves so that we get a continuity of service.” About 90 per cent of the sporting goods, footwear and other items the company distributes for its clients come through the port from the Asian market. “We’re waiting on a fair bit of traffic,” McKenna said. “Some was tied up and some was diverted into Eastern Canada because we couldn’t take it. It’s definitely caused us issues.” The truckers are not directly employed by Port Metro Vancouver, but are typically either independent contractors or sub-contractors working for shipping companies. The B.C. government said on Wednesday afternoon its back-to-work legislation would include a 90-day cooling off period for the 250 truckers who are members of Unifor. A news release says Port Metro Vancouver will begin its planned reform of the licensing system and move to terminate licences, but it’s unclear if that means the remaining 1,000 nonunion drivers will be fired. NRI isn’t the only local company affected by the strike. While Absorbent Products Inc. mainly conducts its business in the U.S. and Canada, president Peter Aylen said the company is finding it more difficult to get trucks for shipping. Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod has heard concerns from other area companies. XSee STRIKE A11

Parents urged to register for K By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Karl deBruijn hopes parents of children who will be ready for kindergarten in September register them now. DeBruijn, an assistant superintendent with the KamloopsThompson school district, said preliminary numbers, now that registration has begun, show only 900 of the anticipated 990 students the board has been expecting as it prepares for upcoming school year. Children can be registered into the school year, he said, but staffing and classroom-allocation planning need to be done now to be submitted to the provincial

education ministry. DeBruijn, who does enrolment forecasting for the school district, said it’s easy to predict grades 1 and 2, for example, because the district cohort is established by the numbers in kindergarten. Some families may move into or out of the city, but the estimate is usually reliable. It’s a bit more difficult to predict kindergarten enrolment because there are unknown families in the city who are about to send their first child into the education system. Often, deBruijn said, they’re the ones who don’t register early because they are unaware they can. If enrolment remains 90 fewer

kindergarten students than expected, “that’s five classes,� deBruijn said. In some schools with a smaller enrolment, it can have a domino effect if there’s a sudden influx. In addition to hiring teachers, it could mean reconfiguring split classes that were initially created because of fewer kindergarten students. “It can be a lot of juggling in the fall and it all results from the Ks,� deBruijn said. Parents can register at their neighbourhood school during school hours. They need to provide the child’s birth certificate and healthcare card, as well as some proof of residency.

Blame Mother Nature for that bumpy ride By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Potholes in Kamloops come in all shapes and sizes. An especially bone-rattling ride can be experienced by vehicles travelling east on Aberdeen Drive as they approach Highway 5A. The road is broken up, forcing cars and trucks to slow down. Dave Eagles/KTW

If roads in the Tournament Capital seem slightly worse than normal this year, blame Mother Nature. While the number of spring potholes on Kamloops’ streets isn’t above average, assistant streets manager Dennis Luison said the city’s temporary winter patch jobs have been popping out more frequently than normal due to wetter weather earlier this month. “Every time the water melts and then freezes again, those same ones like to pop up,” Luison said. The city won’t start permanent repairs on the roads until is has a supply of new asphalt to work with, which won’t arrive until asphalt plants start up for the season in another two or three weeks. Until then, workers will continue to patch with recycled asphalt. Luison said there a bad spots in several corners of the city. “We’re finding a lot of smaller ones on Westsyde Road,” he said. “Those are the ones we keep going back to fill. The larger ones are at the Halston Bridge across the North Thompson and we’ve got a few on Aberdeen Drive.” The city is also watching for frost boiling — when the pavement bubbles and cracks, requiring a more complex repair — which will likely occur as temperatures continue to rise. Lusion said there is some good news on the pothole front. After dryer weather earlier this week, it’s likely the city’s most recent patch jobs will stay put until permanent repair is completed.

Accused killer not happy with appointed help By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Allowing a former New Zealand politician charged with first-degree murder to file applications in court on his own behalf would be akin to a B.C. Supreme Court judge launching a NASA rocket. That’s what Peter Beckett was told in a Kamloops courtroom on Wednesday, March 19, as a date was set to hear arguments on his disclosure application. Beckett, 57, is charged with first-degree murder, counselling to commit murder and obstructing justice. The Crown alleges he killed his wife in 2010, then plotted to have five witnesses murdered while behind bars in 2012. The former town councillor in Napier, New Zealand, is representing himself in court. In February, he applied to be given paper

Cops ink their man Kamloops RCMP have arrested a 34-yearold man in connection to the robbery of the downtown branch of Scotiabank on Monday, March 17. The man was identified by Mounties shortly after the bank at Victoria Street and Third Avenue was robbed at about 3:30 p.m. The fact the suspect in the heist had tattoos on his arms and face undoubtedly made the job of investigators easier. The robber told the teller had a weapon, but he did not show one before leaving with some cash. Witnesses told police the bandit had those telltale tattoos and was white, about 30 years of age and stood five-foot-seven. Cpl. Cheryl Bush said the suspect was arrested at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 18, and will appear in court on charges relating to the hold-up.

copies of all disclosure — something the Crown argued was impractical compared to digital versions. The matter is complicated by the fact B.C. Corrections is opposed to Beckett — a resident of Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre for the time being — having access to a computer, which he would need to review the digital disclosure. Last month, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Ian Meiklem appointed a lawyer to represent Beckett in his applications. Beckett was not happy with that decision and told Meiklem as much. “I can’t appoint somebody for you if you don’t want them,” Meiklem said. “My decision to appoint counsel relates to my assessment of your ability to do the right thing by yourself in terms of the disclosure application.”

“You don’t think I have the intellect to represent myself?” Beckett asked. “It’s not about intellect,” Meiklem replied. “It’s about knowledge and expertise.” “You think I’m lacking in those?” Beckett asked. “Well, yes,” Meiklem said. “It would be like me walking into NASA headquarters and saying, ‘I’m going to take over this rocket launch now.’ “I’m just not equipped to do it no matter what my intellect might be.” Beckett is alleged to have killed his wife, Laura Letts-Beckett, 50, by pushing her off a boat at Shelter Bay — south of Revelstoke — in 2010. He was arrested a year later. In late 2012, while Beckett was in custody charged with murder, he was charged with the additional counts following an undercover jailhouse investigation

by RCMP. Police allege Beckett plotted to kill five witnesses — including LettsBeckett’s parents, an RCMP sergeant and an Alberta lawyer — while behind bars. Beckett and his wife lived north of Edmonton at the time of the incident and are believed to have been in B.C. on vacation. The drowning was first believed to have been an accident. A New Zealand native, Beckett served as a town councillor in Napier from 1998 to 2001. New Zealand media reports describe him as something of a Kiwi Rob Ford, who made headlines for assaulting the captain of a rugby team in a pub and stealing taxpayer-purchased liquor from city meetings. Most recently, he worked as a school bus driver in Westlock, Alta. Beckett’s application hearing is slated to take place on April 15.

Judge says cat did suffer pain XFrom A1

“It would have been obvious when Oreo was clawing at him, his actions were causing the animal pain and suffering . . .” Cleaveley said. “A reasonable person would realize strangling a cat, clawing for its life, would subject it to unnecessary pain and suffering.” A veterinary expert earlier testified it would take between one and one-and-a-half minutes for an asphyxiated cat to lose consciousness and four to five minutes for its heart to stop beating. Cleaveley ordered a pre-sentence report that will include a special component to

recognize Seidel’s First Nations background. The Crown is asking for jail time and Seidel to be banned from owning pets. Defence lawyer Ken Tessovitch had argued Seidel — who admitted to the act and to drinking nine or 10 beer that morning — did not intend to cause unnecessary pain or suffering to the animal when he strangled it to death. Crown prosecutor Alex Janse noted Seidel suffered scratch marks on his arms from the struggling Oreo. “He’s admitted he was frustrated and intoxicated,” she said during final arguments. “It was the quote, ‘last straw,’ and he killed the cat out of anger.” The law allows owners of animals to kill them, regardless of health. But laws are in place regarding suffering and stress an animal may endure. Seidel admitted to strangling the cat dur-

ing a March morning last year. Both Seidel and girlfriend Moriah Smith — pregnant at the time — said they were concerned the cat could not be house trained and the fetus was in danger. The cat was urinating and defecating in their apartment. A pathogen in cat feces can cause birth defects in humans. Seidel and Smith investigated giving the cat to the SPCA, but were living on income assistance and said they could not afford the fees to have it euthanized or put up for adoption. The killing of the cat came to the attention of authorities when Seidel confessed to Smith on the phone and Smith then told a friend. Smith’s first two children are in care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development, something Cleaveley said warrants the pre-sentence report.

The Harper government defies its democratic role

T

WO RECENT announcements from the federal government are shameful. There really is no other adjective to use. This is a government so full of its own self-entitlement, so convinced the rest of us who are not Conservative members of parliament are idiots, that it now defies being called democratic. The first announcement violates the sanctity of ensuring a person’s health issues remain confidential via a conversation between a patient and a doctor or other health-care provider. We simply expect, as one of the tenets of democracy, the right to privacy, particularly as it applies to our health. Effective April 1 — in just 12 days — Health Canada will require all those who legally grow marijuana for health reasons to not just stop, but to destroy any plants, seed or dried product in their possession and advise the federal agency they have done so. If they don’t, Health Canada — an agency that on its website says it “supports the health-care system through initiatives in areas such as health human-resources planning, adoption of new technologies and primary healthcare delivery” — can rat these people out to police. They are doing it to protect public safety, Health Canada said. Now that the federal government has new medical-marijuana regulations that will create a new system that removes the home-grow option for people licensed to do so, the safety of the realm will apparently be in jeopardy. I can see it now — government inspectors showing up unannounced at

DALE BASS Street LEVEL homes, demanding entry to ensure residents have complied with the letter of the law. Police can be waiting out on the road, ready to do follow-up and recommend charges as these inspectors move on to the next home. Health Canada is supposed to operate under the federal Health Act, the same laws that establish our health-care insurance. The act’s objective is “to protect, promote and restore the physical and mental well-being of residents of Canada and to facilitate reasonable access to health services without financial or other barriers.” Apparently the Stephen Harper definition of this includes breaking confidentiality. Privacy or tough on crime — you know which one the prime minister will support first. The second announcement is the one that hurts, one I defy KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod to defend and really mean it. It comes from the lawsuit brought by many of our nation’s veterans, who

are challenging the Harper government over its new Veterans’ Charter. One of the points included in the government’s legal position is that it has no social contract with the people it sent to war and who came home alive. The great philosopher Thomas Hobbes is recognized as having refined the definition of a social contract, a concept that dates back to Plato. Hobbes opined a social contract negates the divine right of kings and adds political obligation. In essence, Hobbes said, it’s acceptable for people to give up some liberty in order to have security but, in exchange, their remaining rights are protected. Our government asked our young men and women to give up their right to protection of their life and go to war. It flows from a social contract, then, that those who come home have some legitimate expectations and how they are able to live their lives, most of them on pensions government has now recalculated, is one of them. The veterans’ lawsuit said their social contract with the government was confirmed often through the decades by promises and speeches and past legislation — and the simple honest-to-goodness understanding that, if they’re willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, the least we can do is look after them properly if that ultimate sacrifice didn’t happen. If, instead, they came home physically scarred or mentally broken, they answered the call of their government. Now, they’ve been kicked to the curb. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

It didn’t take long for the anger to erupt after it was learned the source of the latest measles outbreak in Chilliwack was a local Christian private school. The school — and the church that supports it — has been in the spotlight before over its aversion to vaccinations. Past outbreaks of measles, mumps and whooping cough have all been tied to the community. That association once again drew an immediate and stinging rebuke from people across the country. And rightly so. Religious freedom is a fundamental part of our Canadian identity, but that freedom should not excuse parents from denying their children the simple tools that can protect them from life-threatening, or life-altering, diseases. Choosing not to vaccinate has implications that extend beyond one community. It leaves others — particularly children too young for vaccination — vulnerable to a disease they might otherwise escape. But, while it was a particular religious community that has drawn the most fire over the outbreak, it cannot be overlooked that others are also guilty. Immunization rates in B.C. are nowhere near high enough and there is no good reason for this. Fears that vaccinations carry some harm have long been exposed for what they are — paranoia cloaked in junk science. The bigger concern is complacency. We’ve come to expect the childhood diseases that were once so common have disappeared. What we forget is their absence is due to a stringent vaccination regime. By failing to maintain that regime, we are welcoming back illnesses from which we have fought long and hard to protect our families.

Henry now leading Métis Commission Keith Henry has been named acting chief executive of operations at the Métis Commission for Children and Families of B.C. He assumed the job last week, succeeding Deb Canada. The agency is one of two that were subject to provincial-government audits after complaints were received about their finances. On March 7, Canada was replaced as executive director at the White Buffalo Aboriginal and Métis Health Society by its program director, Jeanie Cardinal.

Henry is president of the White Buffalo board and president of the B.C. Métis Federation. The audits noted the agencies had provided the government with inaccurate financial reports. The audits also noted Canada worked four days a week at the commission and, in 2012, was paid $134,000. She worked one day a week at White Buffalo and, in 2009, was paid $59,000. The audits were conducted in May 2013 by the accounting firm Grant Thornton LLP.

In its document itemizing all payments made greater than $25,000, the Ministry of Finance noted White Buffalo received $409,328 from the province during the 2012-2013 fiscal year, which ended on March 31. The Metis Commission received $586,440 in the same period. The White Buffalo audit noted Canada worked one day a week at the agency and received a salary of $60,000 in 2012 for that work.

Strike having ‘significant, negative impact’ XFrom A3

“Anyone who is transporting goods to the port by truck is getting impacted, whether it’s the meat packers who are sending product to Japan or some of our mills,” McLeod said. “And I’ve heard Aspen Planers in Merritt is looking at what they can do to continue, so there’s no question this is having a significant and negative impact.” Pulp mills in Alberta are reportedly contemplating temporary shutdowns as well, as storage spaces fill up with unshipped product. Transportation Minister and Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone has heard similar stories.

“The stories are coming in fast and furious from communities all across British Columbia,’’ Stone said, adding the lack of rail cars means ore cannot be shipped from the northeast part of the province, which affects mining operations. He said the government believes truckers’ concerns are valid. “British Columbians, and indeed Canadians, are counting on the federally regulated port and the truckers to get back to the table and to continue to discuss the issues and seek a resolution as soon as possible,’ Stone said. —with files from Canadian Press

Imagine wireless parking reservations at TRU Rahman said the ramifications are widespread, particularly as all aspects of life around us become more dependent on everadvancing technologies. Developers don’t immediately think about security, he said, noting the goal is to build the better widget and find the weaknesses later. For someone like, Rahman, however, it means learning every aspect of the widget so he can find where those loopholes are hiding. One of the areas in which he works is nearfield communication (NFC), wireless technology that works within a distance of no more than 10 centimetres — the kind that makes credit cards with pay-pass chips work when you use them. The problem comes from the tag in the card and, in particular, the antenna built into it. If it exists, someone somewhere will try to replicate it, he said. Rahman used the NFC technology to develop some of his own applications, however, from a children’s game that can be played with a tablet and some other pieces to a notice outside his office door he can update remotely “from anywhere in the world. I can change it to say I’m running late and will be there in a few minutes, for example.” The visitor taps their tablet against it, receives the message and can leave one of their own

that will arrive by email to Rahman immediately. The technology could, for example, go into a tiny NFC tag in a human, he said, and hold all their health information. Change up the technology a bit to create a radio-frequency identification module — essentially a reader that can cover a wider area — and it can track anything within a specific range. “So it could give you, for example, real-time monitoring of stock in

a warehouse,” Rahman said. The parking idea also flows from wireless technology. Although still a work in progress, it would mean outfitting parking spots with wireless technology that would record on a server when a parking spot becomes vacant. The information could flow immediately to people looking for a spot. They tap their tablet or smartphone and reserve it, drive

there and park. There’s more Rahman is looking at — software that could be used to help seniors stay in their homes longer and avoid hospital stays and sensors that monitor a senior’s vital statistics and send a message to doctors or paramedics if needed. “All of this is challenging and a lot of this is in a research stage,” Rahman said. “But, there will be a lot of apps coming in the next five to 10 years using this.”

Porsche adds diesel to Cayenne lineup By Jim Robinson METROLAND MEDIA wheelstalk.com

W

HILE CANADIANS are coming around to the efficiencies of diesel, it’s still a

hard sell. There are reasons — higher priced fuel, scarcity of pumps in some locales and messy nozzle handles. Not that long ago diesel owners always had their eye open for their next fill-up when the tank got below half because outlets were few and far between. Thanks primarily to the German manufacturers, diesel is now prevalent and becoming more so with every new filling station that gets opened or remodelled plus the increasing numbers of cars and trucks now from domestics makers. Diesel is, of course, standard fare in Europe where Porsche has offered the Cayenne Diesel since 2009, making it inevitable that it would come to North America based on the success of other marques such as Mercedes-Benz. There are a few other diesels around, they don’t have that allure of the Porsche emblem on the hood. The Cayenne 3.0-litre DOHC turbo diesel debuted in Canada in the 2013 model year and is the first time Porsche has ever offered a diesel in Canada. It produces 240 hp and a sizeable 406 lb/ft of torque that comes in as low as 1,750 rpm. The torque helps the Cayenne hit the 0-100 km/h mark in 7.6 seconds with a top speed limited to 220 km/h (137 mph). With a fuel rating of 10.8/6.7L/100 km (20/29 mpg) city/highway, Porsche says it is 30 per cent more efficient that a similarly sized gasoline engine. Porsche fits a variable vane

turbo that makes for more flexibility allowing power when needed but cutting back on fuel consumption when the engine is not under high load. To control nitrogen oxide emissions, urea (AdBlue) is used as part of the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. It consists of an AdBlue tank in the spare tire well that is heated. Lines from the tank feed directly into the catalytic converter to reduce NOx by up to 90 per cent. When the tank gets low, Porsche allows owners to add their own urea if they wish without any impact on the warranty. There are “diesel only” signs on the filler door and on the dashboard. But to make sure owners don’t pump in gasoline (which would be disastrous), there is a lock in the filler neck that only opens when the larger diameter diesel nozzle is inserted. There is one transmission, an eight-speed Tiptronic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The Diesel and the new S Hybrid are the only Cayennes presently to be fitted with a selflocking centre differential as part of Porsche’s take on permanent all-wheel-drive. In standard mode, torque split is 40 per cent to the front and 60 per cent to the rear. If slippage at one of the wheels is detected, the centre diff routes torque to the axle with the most traction. This is part of the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) that also gives the Diesel variable distribution of engine torque to the rear wheels thus enhancing steering precision and driving dynamics. For example, when entering a corner at high speed, moderate brake pressure is applied to the

Available in Europe since 2009, Porsche now offers its Cayenne with a 3.0-litre turbo diesel that is able to tow up to 3,500 kg, thanks to its 402 lb/ft of torque.

inside rear wheel. This supports the steering motion of the car, thereby improving its cornering dynamics while increasing stability and driver/passenger safety. Maybe the best part of the Cayenne is the interior and the way it still, in the finest Porsche tradition, concentrates on the driver first, starting with the classic five-pot main instrument cluster with the tech dead centre and the largest of the five. Everything you want or need is right there — beautiful. My initial concern, however, was starting on some of the coldest days we’ve experienced in years. In yester-diesels, you turned the key to “on” and waited for the glow plug icon to turn off, which meant the combustion chamber was hot enough to start the engine. XSee PORSCHE A13

So I turned the key one more notch to the “start” position and the engine burst into life not unlike a gasoline engine. And there was none of that hammer-and-tong diesel clatter to boot. I guess the turbo helped here, but so too must have been the extensive sound deadening. There is so much torque so early on in the rev range that the Cayenne almost jumps off the line. Keep your foot down and the power builds like a locomotive — smooth and steady and strong. Much of my driving was in snow and ice pocked urban streets when the elevated seating position made it just that much better to see what was going on around the vehicle. The Cayenne starts at $65,500, which makes it one of the cheapest Porsches you can buy even with the premium charged for the diesel. However, my tester came with the

$8,170 Premium Package that bundles a host of factory goodies such as front and rear park assist, 14-way power driver seat with memory, automatically dimmed interior and exterior mirrors, BiXenon headlights and the list goes on. Price as tested, including $450 for the special 18-inch wheels (a bargain) and the $1,115 shipping fee totalled $75,415. While it was founded on sportscars, Porsche increasingly finds itself as a marker of sports trucks. The Cayenne Diesel joins the base Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo. Just now showing up on Porsche showroom floors are the Cayenne Platinum Edition ($72,200) Diesel Platinum Edition ($76,300). As this is being written, the next chapter in the Porsche story is about to unfold with the Macan compact CUV. But as Porsche evolves, the DNA that made the brand what it is today is still found in every vehicle it makes. Dr. Porsche would be proud.

a lien on it? I realized the wholesaler* had scammed me! If that fellow had asked for a CarProof history report or even a provincial lien search, I’d be the one screaming. Over the next several hours, I kept letting my phone go to voicemail – I couldn’t bear speaking to the young man. I knew I had to switch phones again. I felt a bit ashamed. But I needed to be selfish about this. At this point, the best thing for me was cash. And lots of it. *Wholesaler – Vehicle sellers may call themselves auto brokers or wholesalers to sound legitimate and cheaper. But if they’re selling to private buyers, they must be licensed as a dealer. Like any curber - an individual posing as a private seller but selling vehicles as a business – wholesalers and brokers offer none of the protection the law provides for purchases from a Vehicle Sales Authority licensed dealer. Walt learned that lesson, sson, but his buyer paid the price.

“They took it away,” he said over and over gain. “REPOSSESSED!” again.

Confessions of a Curber My next vehicle came from a used car wholesaler*. There was nothing wrong with it, but he couldn’t find a dealer who wanted it. I gladly took it off his hands. How hip was I? I had a new source of newer vehicles that would come right to me. “Two-year-old car for sale. No previous accident history reported, only 35,000km on it. Call with offer.” Shortly after, I got a call from a young man. His car had just broken down, and he needed a new one fast. He agreed to meet me at the local construction site where he worked. He was just finishing up his lunch when I arrived. He was wearing his construction uniform and I immediately noticed his tired eyes. I felt bad for the poor fellow, and I was glad that I was selling him a reliable vehicle. He didn’t need another headache on top of everything. I even knocked $500 off the price I wanted. It was a smooth transaction. The guy looke looked edd happy h and thanked me immensely ely for all the help. I beamed back at him. Around 5:00 a.m. the next morning, I got a call. It was the construction ructioon worker, yelling so loudly that I could barely ely understand u him. “THEY TOOK IT AWAY,” ” he said over and over again. “REPOSSESSED!” !” I hung up on him and triedd to make sense of the situation. Why would ld th the he car be taken away in the middle of the he night? n Who’s “they”? Liens. Of course. The car ha had ad a lien on it. That’s why it wouldn’t sell ell on a lot. The bank must have seized it due to an unpaid balance. As before, I panicked. I didn’t idnn’t want to get involved in this right now. w. Sure, I sold him the car, but how was I supposed seed to know it had

RED-HOT TECHNOLOGY Audi is ready to add a little oil to the wheels of the daily grind with advanced traffic light recognition technology which could make driving through towns and cities far more fluid and free of annoying and economy-denting red light punctuation. Audi Online traffic light information harnesses the power of incar internet in a new way via Audi connect to establish a link between the car and the traffic light network via the central traffic computer in each town or city. It quickly assimilates the automated traffic light change sequences in the vicinity, and on the approach to a set of lights the Driver Information System (DIS) located in the central instrument

cluster then shows the driver the speed to select in order to pass through the light during a green phase. It also displays a visual aid using red, amber or green icons. If the driver is already waiting at a red light, Audi connect will calculate and count down the time remaining until the next green light is scheduled to appear via a timer on the DIS. The system also interacts with the car’s start-stop function to ensure the engine is switched on five seconds before the green phase. The fully functional system is now production ready and could be fitted to every Audi model in the range subject to the necessary government legislation.

ATS coupe elevates in-vehicle connectivity Cadillac will add enhanced in-vehicle connectivity with the addition of OnStar 4G LTE and the CUE Collection suite of applications. The 2015 ATS Coupe will be among the first Cadillac models equipped with both advanced technologies when it goes on sale this summer. OnStar 4G LTE is a faster and more reliable connection for in-vehicle applications compared to competitive 3G systems. A built-in connection allows passengers access online content and information through a wi-fi hotspot, which can accommodate up to seven devices. The new, faster vehicle connection also powers CUE Collection, a new in-car app marketplace that will be standard on many 2015 Cadillac vehicles with CUE infotainment. Accessible via an icon on the eight-inch LCD touch screen, the CUE system can organize, update or delete user-downloaded apps throughout the life of the vehicle. Expected initial apps include iHeartRadio, The Weather Channel, NPR and Slacker Radio. Cadillac CUE is the centerpiece of the ATS Coupe’s in-vehicle technologies and is available on base models and standard on Luxury, Performance and Premium ATS Coupes. For 2015, CUE includes new enhanced content such as a Text-to-Voice feature for smartphone users with Bluetooth profile, which reads incoming texts through the car’s speakers.

The ATS Coupe will be among the first Cadillac to offer the OnStar 4G LTE and CUE Collection that further enhance connectivity.

5 DAY SALE COAST TO COAST!

Camaro engineers get a grip on wheel slip While running fast laps at several of the country’s most challenging tracks, Camaro Z/28 engineers noticed the tires were providing so much traction and the brakes so much stopping force that the wheels rotated inside the tire – an unexpected challenge that required fast thinking. The suppliers included Pirelli and its P Zero Trofeo R tires and Brembo for carbonceramic brake rotors. The Trofeo R tires have a track-oriented tread design and compound that, together with the carbon-ceramic rotors, help the Z/28 achieve up to 1.5 g in deceleration force. It was a perfect combination, but engineers quickly found that when the Z/28’s capability was tested, the wheels were rotating — slipping — inside the tires.

They sought the root of the problem by marking one of the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires at the beginning of a lap with a chalk line relative to the valve stem on the wheel. At the end of the lap, they recorded where the chalk line ended up and noticed the tire had rotated at least a full 360 degrees from where they started. Racers use an abrasive paint around the bead of the wheel, where the tire meets the rim, to combat the problem on racecars. The Z/28’s engineers tried it, but it wasn’t strong enough to prevent the slippage, so other approaches were tried. Finally, they tried media blasting, which involves shooting a gritty material through an air gun at the wheel’s surface, adding texture to the paint for the tire to grip.

Volvo testing magnets for self-driving cars Volvo Car Group has completed a research project using magnets in the roadway to help the car determine its position. The research, which has been financed in strategic co-operation with the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket), is a potential key to the implementation of selfdriving vehicles. Reliable and highly accurate positioning is one of the crucial issues in the development of self-driving cars. While established positioning technologies such as GPS and cameras have limitations in certain conditions, road-integrated magnets remain unaffected by physical obstacles and poor weather conditions. The magnets create an invisible ‘railway’ that literally paves the way for a positioning inaccuracy of less than one decimeter. Volvo Cars currently plays a leading role in a large-scale autonomous driving pilot project in which 100 self-driving Volvo cars will use public roads in everyday driving conditions around the Swedish city of Gothenburg. Helps prevent runoff road accidents In parallel with the potential in the field of autonomous driving, road-integrated magnets open up a number of other possibilities: • Incorporating magnet-based positioning in preventive safety systems could help prevent run-off road accidents. • Magnets could facilitate accuracy of winter road maintenance, which in turn could prevent damage to snow-covered objects, such as barriers and signs, near the road edge. • There is also a possibility of more efficient utilization of

road space since accurate positioning could

allow lanes to be narrower.

Drivers of the Nissan Leaf — the world’s best-selling electric car — are racing towards the one billion kilometre mark. And some drivers are leading the pack. Nissan has created a series of animated stories to celebrate the race to one billion electric km featuring owners, beginning with Roberto San Jose. Roberto, from Valladolid, narrates his own story as the first taxi driver in Spain to buy a Nissan Leaf, explaining that since buying his Nissan Leaf in October 2011 he has covered over 100,000 km and eliminated three quarters of his running costs. “As long as my car is my business, my car will be a Nissan Leaf,” he said. “The Leaf makes perfect sense. It’s relaxing to drive and it’s such a smooth ride that my clients love it too.” Roberto’s story is already available via a number of social media platforms including Facebook, You Tube and Twitter as well as a dedicated website. While the date of the achievement might move, there can be no denying the total kilometres covered globally. Thanks to Nissan Leaf’s innovative CarWings telemetry, an accurate log of the total distance covered by every car has been recorded since the car was launched in 2010. As more milestones are reached throughout 2014, further animated stories will be revealed and a series of events, all highlighting the benefits of the Nissan Leaf, will be staged.

Jaguar F-Type luggage unveiled in London

Jaguar has collaborated with luxury French luggage label Moynat to produce a bespoke trunk designed specifically to fit the Jaguar F-Type. The one-of-a-kind piece was created to celebrate the opening of Moynat’s first boutique outside Paris. Since its inception in 1849, Moynat has become renowned for production of made-tomeasure luggage and travel accessories. The company specializes in designing custom trunks to match the paint finishes and fit the contours of various vehicles. The most famous example is the Limousine trunk, patented in 1902, with its curved bottom designed to fit on the

roof of an automobile. The trunk fits perfectly into the F-Type trunk, with the signature curves of the Moynat House. It took more than 900 working hours for the design and careful production of the trunk. The structure is moulded to form by hand with eight layers of wood. This is then covered by vegetal dyed leather in slate grey to match the car body, lined in mandarin orange colour, the signature colour of Moynat. Inside the trunk, an electric scooter is provided for use in urban areas.

Crown stays murder charges in McCann case CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — Charges have been stayed against a man accused in the deaths of an Alberta couple who disappeared almost four years ago. The Crown abruptly stayed two counts of first-degree murder against Travis Vader during a pre-trial hearing on Wednesday. RCMP declared Vader a person of interest in the case shortly after Lyle and Marie McCann were reported missing in July 2010. The couple, who were in their 70s, lived in St. Albert, a bedroom community north of Edmonton. They were last seen alive fuelling up their motorhome for a trip to B.C. to vacation with family. The burned-out vehicle was found west of Edmonton two days later. A week later, the SUV they had been

towing was also discovered. The couple’s bodies have never been found. Vader’s defence lawyer, Brian Beresh, said his client was Lyle and Marie McCann were reported missing in July 2010. “shocked and option of reactivating the charges elated’’ by the surprise stay. Vader was scheduled to go to trial in the next year if new evidence is brought forward. on the murder charges next month, Beresh said if that happens, it but Beresh said he was still fighting would be an abuse of process. for disclosure of evidence from the Beresh was critical of the RCMP Crown. He said the evidence he did and justice officials for mishandling see on the case was “shoddily gaththe case and said the McCann family ered . . . a bunch of strings that was deserves better. never tied together.’’ A stay means the Crown has the “Those who are looking for

answers should expect, in my view, a better investigation, more clear information and not to be led to a wrong belief,” he said. “The problem is if a citizen is indicted by police publicly, that can never be removed. And it leads to people, such as the relatives, to a belief that the police have solved this when, in my view, that did not happen.’’ Crown prosecutor Michelle Doyle did not explain the stays in court. Justice spokeswoman Michelle Davio later said in a statement that the Crown has a duty to constantly review a case and ensure there is a reasonable likelihood of conviction. “The Crown may not continue a prosecution unless it has had the opportunity to conduct this review, particularly if additional information is provided to it by the police investigators,’’ Davio said.

Making a plea before the UN OTTAWA — China has failed to silence a Montreal woman from making an impassioned plea to the United Nations for the freedom of her father, a democracy leader who has been in solitary confinement for half her life. The poignant moment unfolded on Wednesday as the United Nations Human Rights Council held hearings in Geneva on China’s human-rights record. Ti-Anna Wang, 24, was telling the council she wanted China to free her dad, Wang Bingzhang, and all political prisoners. The Chinese delegate cut her off and objected, backed by delegates from Cuba, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The Americans leapt to Wang’s defence, along with the British and five European countries. Wang was allowed to resume, saying China banned her from visiting her father five years ago and stopped delivering her letters this year.

Vader still faces other charges unrelated to the McCann case and remains in custody. The mystery surrounding the disappearance of the McCanns gripped Alberta and the rest of Canada for much of the summer of 2010. After the burned-out motorhome was found and documents inside linked it to the McCanns, Mounties phoned the couple and knocked on the door of their house. But, police didn’t begin searching for them until five days later after their daughter reported her parents hadn’t shown up in Abbotsford for a camping trip. RCMP explained at the time the case didn’t set off alarm bells immediately because vehicles are often found burning in the bush and it’s not unusual for people to be away from home during the summer.

Seniors’ advocate a first in Canada CANADIAN PRESS

VICTORIA — The B.C. government has appointed as provincial seniors’ advocate a Victoria care administrator with 20 years’ experience working with and serving the elderly. In what is a Canadian first, Health Minister Terry Lake, who is also MLA for KamloopsNorth Thompson, said appointing Isobel Mackenzie to head the Office of the Seniors’ Advocate fulfils a B.C. Liberal government promise to create the position. The advocate post resulted from a sweeping report by Ombudsperson Kim Carter, who made 176 recommendations to improve the lives of

British Columbia’s elderly. Tragic cases of seniors with dementia wandering from their homes and others being found malnourished in hotels or choking to death while being fed by caregivers were making headlines as the Liberals considered appointing the advocate. As the chief executive at Victoria’s not-forprofit Beacon Community Services, which provides services to 7,000 seniors, Mackenzie said she knows the challenges and choices seniors and their families face. Mackenzie said she will gather evidence that focuses on emerging issues facing seniors and make recommendations to the government.

TORONTO — A video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking what appears to be “a narcotic’’ was found on the laptop of an alleged gang member, who also apparently filmed himself describing how to “catch a mayor smoking crack,’’ police allege. A detailed description of the so-called crack video is part of a document, released on Wednesday by an Ontario Superior Court judge, containing police allegations used to obtain search warrants in an ongoing investigation involving Ford. “Mayor Ford is holding what appears to be a glass cylinder in one hand and a lighter in the other hand while engaged in conversation with individual(s) off camera,’’ police describe. “At one point Mayor Ford holds the glass cylinder to his mouth, lights the lighter and applies the flame to the tip of the glass cylinder in a circular motion. After several seconds, Mayor Ford appears to inhale the vapour which is produced, then exhale the vapour.’’ The document contains police allegations not proven in court. The video appears to have been filmed surreptitiously at 7:57 p.m. on Feb. 17, 2013 — showing Ford “consuming what appears to be a narcotic while inside a residence,’’ police allege. It was Sunday of a long Family Day weekend in Ontario. Ford has admitted smoking crack cocaine, likely in one of his “drunken stupors,’’ but has said he hasn’t seen the video. Ford has urged police to release it and he has also dared the chief to arrest him. Police offered Ford — through his lawyer — an opportunity to watch the video, on the condition he not comment on the video or discuss it with anyone, but he declined, police say in the newly released document. Ford refused to comment, but his lawyer, Dennis Morris, said the police offer was “baloney.” “We weren’t interested in that. If you want to show the video, show the world,’’ he told the Canadian Press. ``Don’t show it to me and the mayor and say, ‘You can’t discuss it.’ That’s absurd. It makes no sense.’’ Morris called the release of the documents a “continued waste’’ of taxpayers’ money. “No one could say what’s in the pipe,’’ he said.

HENDRIKUS (HENRI) JOHANNES DANE 1931 - 2014 Henri (Henk) Dane passed away on March 13, 2014 following a lengthy but courageous battle with cancer at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House in Kamloops, BC. Born February 24, 1931 in Vlissingen, Holland, Henri is lovingly remembered by his wife of 60 years, Christina (Tina), his loving children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and extended family throughout Canada and Holland. Henri is pre-deceased by his beloved son Robert and great grandson Nicholas.

December 26, 1928 – March 5, 2014

EDIE ELIZABETH BROADFOOT April 11, 1922 – March 11, 2014 Edie is survived by Fred, her best friend and loving husband of 70 years, along with her daughter Carol (Tom); sons Doug (Colleen) and Glen (Helen); her grandchildren Adam, Terra, Amy, Darren and Christine; great-grandchildren Noah, Meghan, Ryan and Jayden; and her siblings Jim, Doug and Judy who all lovingly cherish her memory. Edie was born in Winnipeg to Gladys and Sydney Kirk. She met Fred when she was 16 and Fred was instantly smitten. They enjoyed canoeing and shared wonderful days at Grand Beach in the summers and great moccasin and snowshoe tramps in the winters. They were married on May 1, 1943 and soon after moved to Vancouver where they started their family. In 1961 they moved to Kamloops and in 1977 retired to Chase.

Henri left a considerable legacy in his chosen field and worked tirelessly to promote his profession within Canada and internationally. He was a chef whose love of his profession exemplified the elements of pride, expertise and dedication to the craft of cooking. Henri was an instructor at SAIT in Calgary and Director of Food Services and Training at Malaspina College in Nanaimo. Henri and Tina opened Le Chef Restaurant in Nanaimo in 1985 where they worked tirelessly until they retired in 1992. Among others, Henri was a past President, Chef of the Year and Lifetime Member of the Calgary Academy of Chefs and Cooks and the Canadian Federation of Chefs & Cooks (Founding Member), and an Honorary Member of the World Association of Chefs Societies. The highlight of Henri’s career was winning the Gold Medal at the 1984 Culinary Olympics in Frankfurt, Germany as Team Manager. Henri was an accomplished speaker, teacher and writer (he was published often, including in Canadian magazines), who was passionate about Canadian Cuisine, Chefs, promotion of the CCFCC and in imparting his knowledge to young chefs. Henri was similarly passionate about his love of fishing which he shared with his children and grandchildren throughout their lives as well as his love of food. The family is grateful for the kind care of his doctors and nurses and the many staff and volunteers at Kamloops Hospice and their kind friends and neighbours. No flowers please but donations can be made on behalf of Henri to the Canadian Cancer Society. There will be no funeral by request.

GEORGE”RUSTY” CHARLES FORREST SMITH

George “Rusty” passed away March 5th, 2014 in Kamloops, BC in his 85th year. He will be lovingly remembered by his loving wife Marie, daughter Jennifer (Dale) and son Brent (Kelli) of Kamloops. Rusty was predeceased by his parents George and Jessie Smith as well as his sisters Jessie and Mary and brother Alex. The family would like to express a special thank you to the staff at Royal Inland Hospital and Dr. Paul Yanko for all your compassionate care.

They shared many wonderful adventures including trips to England, Portugal, Hawaii and Mexico. No matter where they were, she and Fred shared a love of nature and the outdoors. She enjoyed camping, cross-country skiing, swimming and long walks. She loved canoeing and they paddled many of the lakes and rivers of BC, including the Bowron Lakes. Gardening was a passion of Edie’s and the abundant vegetables and beautiful flowers found in her gardens were a testament to her green thumb. Edie had a sense of humor and was a great storyteller, even writing some of her stories for us to treasure. The Anglican Church was an important part of her life and she spent many selfless hours volunteering as a Sunday school teacher and running the community’s thrift shop. Children always played a big role in her life, from raising her own to working as a kindergarten teacher and being ‘Akela’ for the Cub Scouts.

Should friends desire, donations may be made to Kamloops & District Humane Society

Most of all she was devoted to her family, showering us all with great love, understanding and support. She gave so much of herself to everyone around her and she will be lovingly remembered and truly missed. Her presence made the world a better place and all who met her, if even briefly, remember her as a warm, caring and amazing woman. We love you Edie, thank you for being a part of our lives.

Broken neck won’t shatter dreams Bantam Blazers at provincials By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Watching Kevin Cramer prepare for his first start this season has been emotional for Ray Chadwick. “It’s different for me because I had the same injury,” the TRU WolfPack baseball coach said, reflecting on the left-hander’s return to a regular role with the squad. “It’s emotional. It’s different.” Cramer, a pitcher, broke his neck in an accident at Pioneer Park in August 2011. He hit the bottom after sliding into the Thompson River, breaking his C5 vertebrae. Chadwick’s accident was different — a

drunk driver hit him — but the result was similar as he broke his C4 and C5 vertebrae. Cramer, a 25-yearold Arizona native, was initially paralyzed and needed surgery. Now at 100 per cent and with the WolfPack set to start its 2014 Canadian College Baseball Conference spring season on Friday, March 21, at Norbrock Stadium, Cramer is eyeing a fulltime return to the starting rotation. A former pitcher, Chadwick knows the road Cramer has travelled to get back into playing shape. “It’s a huge motivation for these guys, to see him out and playing, especially

for the guys that have been here with him,” Chadwick said. Cramer is in the running for either the three or four spot in the WolfPack’s pitching rotation. The season has special significance for Cramer, who moved to Kamloops from Camp Verde, Ariz., to play baseball with the WolfPack. In four pre-season appearances, the 6-foot3 starter pitched 11 innings, surrendering 16 hits, 10 runs and compiling a 6.55 ERA. He had four strikeouts. “I knew that if I didn’t try my best to work hard every day at it, that it would never be a possibility,” he said of his return.

“My odds were nearly zero,” he continued. “So, when your surgeon tells you [after six months] that you shouldn’t even be running around in the outfield, playing catch or catching balls, you think about that every day when you come out and pitch. It just makes it that much sweeter.” Cramer is among a small group of WolfPack seniors, along with Cam Strachan and Jacob Hein. Strachan is a 6-foot3 fielder, who originally came to the WolfPack as a left-handed pitcher. He has also played in the infield for the WolfPack and was a CCBC first team allstar last season at designated hitter.

In 40 exhibition atbats, he averaged .350, with 14 hits, six runs and five RBI. “He’s strong. He can hit the ball out of all parts of the ballpark, so that’s always a bonus,” Chadwick said. “You can’t teach power, which he has.” Hein will be the team’s ace, the leader of the pitching staff that will welcome Cramer back to the mound fulltime. “Never give up on any dreams you have,” Cramer said. “You can pretty much make anything happen if you try hard enough. “I know that doesn’t happen with everybody, but at least give it a shot.”

Brendan Mongey scored late in the third period to lift the Kamloops Jardine Blazers to a 2-1 win over Kelowna at the bantam tier 1 provincial hockey championship in Prince George on Wednesday, March 19. Brendan Semchuk also scored for Kamloops in support of goaltender Curt Doyle. The Blazers opened the tournament by blanking Cowichan Valley 6-0 on Monday, March 17, before losing 5-1 to the North Shore Winter Club on Tuesday, March 18. Kamloops played Prince George after KTW’s press deadline on Wednesday. The Blazers wrap round-robin play today (March 20) with a game against Burnaby Winter Club. Later tonight, the championship final will be held, with game time set for 8 p.m.

WHL bantam draft order decided The Kamloops Blazers will pick third overall at the WHL Bantam Draft in Calgary on May 1. Kamloops had a shot at receiving the No. 1 pick, but the Saskatoon

Blades won the draft lottery on Wednesday, March 19. Due to a stipulation in a 2012 trade between the Blades and the Wheat Kings, Brandon will pick first overall.

PHYTOPLANKTON PRODUCTS Canadian “Superfood” Gaining International Attention Creator of UMAC CoreTM Still Defying The Odds

UMAC-CORE is a unique product created out of an urgent need. In 2004 Tom Harper was diagnosed with a life threatening illness caused by asbestos exposure and given only months to live. He had been raising shellfish on his Research Sea Farm on Vancouver Island, simultaneously perfecting the only method worldwide of growing wild phytoplankton for use in the Aquaculture industry. Based on the wild plankton’s powerful nutritional profile, upon his diagnosis he decided to consume the blend of micronutrients as an energy source he so desperately needed as the time. Every day he ingested the minute ocean plant and everyday he felt stronger and experienced less pain. Finally a surgeon performed exploratory surgery. To the doctor’s surprise he was inexplicably able to deliver Mr. Harper a clean bill of health. Six years later, Tom Harper is healthy and, in his words,

“feeling totally different. I am pain free and I’m leading a good, healthy, normal life.” Not long after the product was officially launched in Canada and the U.S.A, the University of Utah completed a randomized full double-blind placebo control pilot study of UMAC-CORE over a 90 day period with human subjects. Doctors who conducted the studies were impressed with the results and concluded that UMACCORE really does help enhance the immune system and support mood fluctuations, quality of sleep, and overall emotional well-being.

Unique Sea Farms’ only by-product is pure oxygen! Marine Phytoplankton consumes carbon dioxide and releases oxygen back into the atmosphere as it blooms in the one million litre outdoor open tanks. Also, once the majority of plankton is harvested, the remaining plankton nutrients are returned back to the ocean-3 to 5 times more than what was originally “borrowed” to commence the bloom cycle; helping to strengthen the base of the ocean’s food chain.

UMAC-CORE is available in Liquid and Capsule quickly gained far more attention formulations. than Harper could have imagined. “People were experiencing really positive shifts in their health,” Harper says. “Our success was consumer driven and we weren’t quite prepared for the demand. There were times when staff would offer to spend the night at the office so that we could get the product out, and they often did!”

UMAC-CORE

Today UMAC-CORE is available in over 800 health food stores across Canada, in stores all across the United States and overseas in Australia, New Zealand and Spain. Following the interest and countless testimonials from the public, UMAC-CORE has been written about in dozens of newspapers across North America – and the excitement continues to grow.

MARINE M ARINE PHYTOPLANKTON PHYTOPLANKTON

Kim Iles of Choices 4 Wellness – a retailer in Chatham Ontario says, “I recommend UMAC-CORE to everybody – it’s one of the top two products in our whole store and that’s because people see results! I tell people that if they needed to pick only one thing, then pick UMAC-CORE. It has all the vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. It’s a complete food and does so many different thing in the body that it’s probably the most complete supplement to recommend.” People are even giving it to their pets with remarkable results. In fact, Kim Iles says it’s the results she gets with animals that have convinced her of the product’s efficacy. “It’s not a placebo effect when you give it to your sick pets. We’ve nursed sick animals back to health with UMAC-CORE. That’s how I judge if a product really works-if you can see results with animals-and we do.” Mr. Harper’s Sea Farm which grows the wild phytoplankton offered in UMAC-CORE is also making a positive impact on the environment. “I consider it one of the greenest companies in the world. Not only are we able to give back to human beings, we are also giving back to the planet.”

Kamloops a golf lover’s Mecca and rightly so

I

T’S TIME TO break out the big stick and let the big dog sing. Get your mind out of the gutter — golf season is here. The Tournament Capital and its surrounding areas are blessed with a formidable variety of courses, none of which I’ll single out for fear of backlash from the others.

MARTY HASTINGS The Tattle of Hastings Everything from hackers’ havens to top-tier tracks,

Kamloops has it all. Across the province word has long been out about lush local fairways and silkysmooth greens, with the region’s clubs left to fight for out-oftown green fees. Each year, some courses are in better condition than others, but there is never a lack of options for anyone interested in a good walk spoiled.

My pals happen to be decent golfers, battling to stay in the 70s while I blow up for a hundy — an honest 100, though. None of this stroke-shaving business. You know who you are. The scores are quickly forgotten over a pitcher on the patio, the fierce Kamloops sun slowly fading into the night. We really do live

Trips to the River City have become tradition for a group of my friends, weekend events filled with duck-hook drives and lowbrow banter. We change it up each year, doing our best to test all of the region’s offerings, playing at least a pair of courses over two hot, hazy summer days in the Tourney Cap.

Local courses set for opening day Golfers will be pulling their clubs out of storage this week, with six Kamloopsarea golf courses planning to be open by Friday, March 21. The Dunes at Kamloops and Rivershore Golf Links opened on Wednesday, March 19, while Mount Paul Golf Course has been open since March 9. Kamloops Golf and Country Club, Sun Rivers Golf Resort and Eaglepoint Golf Resort are scheduled to open on Friday, while Pineridge Golf Course is aiming for the weekend. “Our left side is still kind of shaded by the hillside there, but we’re hoping for Saturday,” Pineridge general manager Adam Hicks said. “If it just stays like this, we’ll be there.” Talking Rock Golf Course is expected

Brown rink gunning for CIS title Corryn Brown knows there will be stiff competition at the CISCCA Curling Championships, but that’s what has the Kamloops native excited to get play underway in Regina this week. “There’s a bunch of teams that are very good,” Brown said prior to the tournament. “It definitely won’t be an easy ride there — it will be a test of how good we really are.” Brown is familiar with most of her opponents, including the likes of 2014 world junior champion Kelsey Rocque of the University of Alberta and Carly Howard

— daughter of Ontario’s Glenn Howard — who plays for the Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks. Also at the championship are the University of Toronto, Carleton University, the University of Regina, the University of New Brunswick and the University of Prince Edward Island. Wilfred Laurier has won four of the last six women’s titles. Brown and her Thompson Rivers University-sponsored rink will be playing two draws each day, with play wrapping up on Sunday, March 23.

Blaze squad finds gold in Surrey The under-16 Kamloops Blaze boys won gold at the Mayor’s Cup soccer tournament, which wrapped up in Surrey on Sunday, March 16.

Dario Piva, Kailum Nicolson and Tukker Tomlin also earned Game MVP awards. Matthew Mackenzie backstopped Kamloops at the tourney.

Alex Bepple is the Blaze’s goalkeeper. Tak Cox was the Game MVP in the final. Also earning Game MVP awards at the tournament for Kamloops were Mondor, Bepple and Kolton Storzuk.

Prospect forward Bast inks deal with Blue and Orange The Kamloops Blazers signed 1997-born prospect Spencer Bast to a standard WHL education contract on Tuesday, March 18. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound for-

When the Kamloops Horticulture Horizons conference was first held in 2007, it was a small get-together that saw a couple of local gardening enthusiasts make a four-hour presentation to their friends. Now in its seventh year, the event has grown to include nine presentations over an actionpacked day of horticulture talk. “Our mandate is education,” said Kevin Scollon, a TRU horticulture instructor and the organizer of this year’s Horticulture Horizons conference. “That’s why it was formed — it’s a whole bunch of likeminded people.” Scollon said everyone is welcome to take in the event. “It’s for the general public, serious gardeners and people in the industry, as well,” he said. “We’ve got people coming from Kelowna, Vernon and Salmon Arm already registered.” Scollon said he’s capping attendance at 120. “It’s always a good day,” he said. “You get a lot of likeminded people, there’s a great lunch, a great lineup of speakers and it ties in well with what we do [at TRU].

Horticulture Horizons conference organizer and TRU horticulture instructor Kevin Scollon is expecting a packed house of 120 gardeners at the April 5 event. For a full list of workshops, go online to trufog. org/wp-content/uploads/Brochure2014.pdf. Dave Eagles/KTW

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Project X theatre show must go on Kamloops theatre group under new leadership after co-founder’s final act Project X is under new leadership following the departure of cofounder Derek Rein. Heather Cant and Melissa Thomas have been named co-artistic producers as the theatre company prepares for the 2014 season. Project X is a group of actors, set designers and others who create XFest at Prince Charles Park every summer. Rein and Samantha Macdonald created the theatre troupe in 2004 to bring outdoor theatre to Kamloops. Macdonald left in 2010 to become artistic producer at Theatre North West in Prince George. A promotion at work and a busier schedule led to Rein stepping down earlier this month. “I think it’s in a place right now where,

with the right people, it can carry on,” he said. Cant and Thomas are artists and alumni of past Project X seasons. Thomas has been involved with Project X since its inception in 2004, performing in Two Gentlemen of Verona for the com-

pany’s first summer show. She went on to act in several other productions, including The Tempest, Hamlet, and Munsch Ado About Nothing. She also assistantdirected several productions and directed

a Much Ado about Nothing, Adult Entertainment, James and the Giant Peach (XFest 2012) and Fantastic Mr. Fox (XFest 2013). Cant has been a professional theatre artist and producer for 16 years.

She was first introduced to Project X audiences as a performer in 2008. She has also assistant directed two productions with the company (The Rocky Horror Show and Twelfth Night) and was last seen on stage there during XFest 2012 for Romeo and Juliet and James and the Giant Peach. X Fest 2014 will be announcing its season shortly and is looking for people to join its board. Contact Michael Fane by email at projectxtheatreproductions@gmail.com or attend the annual general meeting on Sunday, March 23, at 2:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s On The Square, at Second Avenue and Seymour Street in downtown Kamloops.

Substance abuse focus of new art exhibit By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

You don’t need to call yourself an artist to get involved in a new show from the Kamloops Arts Council. KAC and the Phoenix Centre are looking for works of art for Bearing Witness, a month-long exhibition on the subject of substance abuse set to open April 24. Kathy Sinclair, executive director of the arts council, said the show was inspired by KAC’s Crossing Bridges program, which connects artists with nonprofit groups serving vulnerable members of the community. For the last year, a council-funded artist has offered weekly art lessons at the

Phoenix Centre. Programs are also in place at New Life Mission and the YWCA Women’s Shelter. Phoenix Centre executive director Sian Lewis said making art has plenty of therapeutic benefits for people in recovery. “There is a release of emotion and energy and clarity sometimes that comes with simply expressing ourselves via art,” she said. It’s also led to some pretty amazing art, she added. Lewis is hoping the open call will encourage new artists to submit works. While substance abuse is the theme of the exhibition, Sinclair said artists can interpret that as literally, or not, as they choose in any medium they like.

“It doesn’t have to be a picture of something directly related to substance abuse,” she said. “It might be something like a flower that reminds you of someone in your family who was struggling with substance-abuse issues. “It could be completely abstract or the reflection of a feeling you have.” Both organizations are hoping the show, which will run at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, will lead to better awareness of substance-abuse issues in the community. “It’s really looking at the whole person,” said Sinclair. “I think, in our society, we tend to stigmatize people who are dealing with certain

issues but, at the root of it, people are people and we all go through challenging, difficult times. “I think that the arts can really bring about that way of looking at the whole person.” Lewis said she’s hoping the show will also encourage people who may not have a direct link to someone with an addiction to think about how Kalmoops is affected by the issue. “Substance abuse affects the entire community, the country, the globe,” she said. “We want people to come forward and express their perspective of substance abuse and the impact it has.” For more information on submitting work call 250-372-7323.

Vitamin C and Lysine Powder Help Prevent Heart Attacks W. Gifford-Jones, MD

W

hy is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninety-nine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack. Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, was ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries. So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, are condemning thousands of people to an early coronary heart attack. Sixteen years ago following my own coronary attack, cardiologists claimed it was sheer madness for me to refuse cholesterol-lowering drugs. Instead, I decided

to take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons. I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus™ is available at health food stores. The dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal. Those at greater risk should take one flat scoop three times a day. If high doses cause diarrhea, the dose should be decreased. This column does not recommend that those taking CLDs should stop them. This is a decision that can only be made by patients and doctors. Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterol-lowering drugs are the be-all-and-end-all to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!” It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it! Available at Your Local Health Food Store and Select Natural Pharmacy.

Drawing conclusions B

ELIEVE ME WHEN I tell you I cannot draw. I cannot paint. I cannot sculpt. And, although I haven’t tried every medium yet, I’m willing to bet I cannot throw clay, turn wood, blow glass or reproduce Starry Night in subtle shades of sidewalk chalk. In fact, give me a ball of yarn and, although I have both knitting needles and crochet hooks, plus a Yarn for Dummies work book, I will not, at the end of a great deal of time and effort, be able to give you back a sweater or a blanket — or even an interestingly stitched hat or scarf. Sure, I can bake. I can write. And I can support other artists in their work by surrounding myself with items of creative worth. Which is why, several years ago, we decided to adorn the walls and shelves of our home slowly, buying pieces from upand-coming artists and artisans instead of mass-produced knickknacks and unnumbered prints. Since then, we’ve acquired an impressionist painting by a local artist and hand-crafted coffee mugs from Nelson. In the space where I work are two East Coast rug hookings; one whimsical, the other depicting a woman who is standing up to a towering and darkly ominous crow. Above an antique desk of no known origin hangs a limited edition conceptual photography print, which was the artwork my publisher chose as the cover for my very first (and still only) book. From modern stained glass to a one-of-a-kind salad bowl, I love living with the works of other people’s hands. But, damn if they don’t make me wish I could at least sketch

Sour Cherry & Pistachio Blondies 9 tbsp. butter, softened (plus more for pan) 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking powder 1 cup packed brown sugar 2 large eggs 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 1 cup dried sour cherries 3/4 cup shelled salted pistachios, coarsely chopped

DARCIE HOSSACK

Bon APPÉTIT an occasional doodle of my own. This is how, one recent day, I came to buy a how-to-sketch kit, complete with paper, pencils, eraser and, most importantly, instructions to help me discover the doodler within — or, at least, that’s what I thought until it turned out that the book assumed I was already an artist who may merely have skipped over the rudiments on the way to creative glory. I should have read the fine print. I was probably too busy eating brownies. Nevertheless, the guide book started me off with essential shapes. Once I’d managed a passable series of circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, cylinders and ovals, I was encouraged to turn said circle into an apple and another into a teapot. Roughly half an hour into my attempts at still lifes of the kitchen, my apple did look something like an apple. My teapot, meanwhile, looked more like an ad for Viagra. I erased the spout and drew it again. Erased and drew, erased and drew until, at last and at least, the page no longer made me cringe or blush. Looking back, I can’t say the

sketch kit was the best $10 I’ve ever spent. Right now it’s sitting by the window and I’m keenly aware I haven’t the faintest hope of drawing anything from the next page of instructions. There would be nothing I’d be willing to stick on the fridge, let alone a wall. So, after I swished up a handful of pencil shavings and bits of eraser, then soaped the graphite from my hands with a lather of lime-scented dish liquid, I went into the kitchen. Sure, it’s probably too soon

to abandon my pencils. But, as it happens, no matter how much I might like to draw, paint or even knit, given the chance, I wouldn’t trade my butter, sugar and literary devices for anything anyway.

FAITH

John 6 Christian ponders body and the blood

I

USED TO BE a very highprofile Protestant: Deacon, master’s degree in theology, doctorate in psychology, guest speaker at international conferences in Vancouver, Salt Lake City, Hong Kong and the United Nations in New York City, invited to testify at Parliament, subject of a CBC documentary. Now I’m a low profile Catholic. That surprises a lot of people. “Why did you convert?” is a common question. I usually answer, “I didn’t ‘convert.’ I was a Christian before and I’m still a Christian.” Nevertheless, my family and Protestant friends were pretty shocked. My father was a United Church minister and my brother is a Baptist elder.

CHRIS KEMPLING You Gotta Have FAITH My family history includes 17thcentury Lutherans and Huguenots. I’m the first Catholic in my family in more than 400 years. There are many reasons, but it comes down to these three: I believe in miracles, I believe in the power of God and I believe the words of Jesus Christ. Catholics believe the communion bread and wine become the true body and blood of our Saviour when the priest invokes the Holy

Spirit over the altar. It is a holy and powerful moment — and the focal point of Mass. Everyone is on their knees at that moment because we believe we are in the presence of our Lord. “But, that’s silly, impossible, ridiculous.” Is it? Is there anything impossible for God? Let’s look at what Jesus said in John chapter 6. After miraculously feeding the 5,000, Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life . . . this bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world . . . unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and I will raise him up

at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him . . . he who feeds on this bread will live forever.” The response of the disciples was: “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?” And scripture reports that “many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.” With all due respect to my Protestant brothers and sisters, they are the spiritual heirs of this group. Without a doubt, it is a hard teaching, but I believe it because Jesus said it, because I believe anything is possible with God and I believe in miracles. Let me tell you a brief story. In my former (Protestant) church,

we had a visitor, the father of one of our members. He was a priest of the Assyrian Catholic Church (from Iraq), ministering in Chicago. It happened to be a communion Sunday. After partaking in the grape juice, we all put our little cups on the floor, each one having a few drops of juice remaining in it. Our distinguished guest, with a very pained look on his face, bent over to pick up the little cups. He couldn’t bear to see the blood of Christ treated in such a disrespectful way. And what happens to the leftover bread and juice, even after being consecrated at the altar? Into the garbage and down the sewer. Jesus did not intend his Body and

his Blood to be just a symbol; otherwise he would have calmed the grumblers by saying, in effect, “Chill out. I was just speaking metaphorically”. I’m a fan of the CSI TV series. From a single flake of skin, the CSI experts can discern the DNA of the killer and prove his identity beyond a shadow of a doubt. “You were at the crime scene!” the prosecutor thunders. One flake of skin, a microscopic double helix of DNA, is all it takes to prove a total human being was present in a particular place. Our Lord is present in the Eucharistic symbols — the bread and wine. Protestants have no problem believing Jesus is God in the flesh— fully God and fully man — as it is

the cornerstone belief of Christianity. That the Almighty could veil himself in the flesh of a single man is incredible, yet every true Christian believes this impossible miracle. The concept of the Real Presence in the Eucharist is very difficult to accept. In 700 A.D., a priest in Lanciano, Italy, was celebrating Mass and became overwhelmed with doubt as he pronounced the words of consecration. He was astonished to see the elements transformed into flesh and blood. Forensic tests performed in 1971 indicated human blood and human heart muscle. I’m a John 6 Christian and I became one after much reflection on the words of our Saviour. How about you?
