Matthew Foerster murder trial opens

Kathy Michaels

STAFF REPORTER

The last text message Taylor Van Diest sent read: “I’m being crept.” Another partial message was waiting in her phone’s queue, but the Armstrong teen never finished it. Hours later her body was found face down in a ditch. She was still breathing, but a jury in Kelowna heard Monday she wasn’t responsive as friends, family and emergency staff tended to her. Although there were signs of strangulation, it was blows to the head that ultimately killed the 18-year-old on Halloween night, 2011. Insights into the teenager’s final moments came during the opening day of the first degree murder trial for Cherryville man Matthew Foerster, 28, who Crown counsel alleged Monday has already expressed remorse for a sexual assault gone awry. In opening statements Crown counsel Frank Caputo pointed to an interview with a Sgt. Davidson, which will be played for a jury some time in the next weekand-a-half of testimony. “Matt, look me in the eye and tell me this: Do you feel bad for killing Taylor,” said Sgt. Davidson, during an interview recorded April 6, 2012. “Yes,” said Foerster.

“You didn’t mean to…you went for sex and if she didn’t fight you, you wouldn’t have killed her,” Sgt. Davidson said in the transcript. “Uh, yes,” said Foerster. In addition to Davidson, Caputo will call 15 other witnesses as Crown counsel makes a case for first-degree murder. Two of those witnesses took the stand on Monday morning. Const. Milan Ilic was working in Armstrong the night Van Diest was reported missing and testified he got the call about a missing teen wearing a zombie costume that night. He drove by dozens of children and teens in costumes, scanning the crowd for Van Diest, before he parked near the railroad tracks that run through the city of Armstrong, close to the former cheese factory. Instantly, he was greeted by three people. “A male knocked on the window and asked if I was looking for Taylor,” Ilic said. The trio, who included two of Taylor’s friends and her mother, told Ilic they had been searching for the teen since her cell phone was found by the railway tracks earlier, and she had failed to show up at the party where she’d been expected.

Farmers’ market could split to two sites Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

An ill-formed belief parking problems were looming and lack of faith the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market could rebrand in a new location will prevent downtown foodies from a lazy walk to pick up farm fresh produce any time soon. Saturday evening,

the voting vendors of the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market— those who have secured a permanent table at the long-time site across from Orchard Park Mall—shot down a bid to move to the former B.C. Tree Fruits packinghouse on Clement Avenue where developer Gary Tebbutt is building a Granville Island-style bazaar capable of housing

the twice-weekly event. Final results were 58 against the move and 35 for, with 32 who did not take part in the vote. Market president Wolfe Wesle believes the ballot showcases misunderstandings and misrepresentations that plagued the bid to relocate. “In short, I think it’s an emotional reaction based

on fear, and so on and so forth, rather than a factual argument,” said Wesle, clearly displeased with the outcome when interviewed Monday. “Parking has turned out to be a non-issue, but some people have latched onto it believing there is a problem.” According to Wesle, the new location will have 645 parking spots on site

and up to an additional 120 spots on Vaughan Street, in front of the facility, in addition to parking on the surrounding streets. The current location has 10 handicapped spots, but is situated across from Orchard Park Mall and the street by the Central Okanagan School

Council moving on Lakeshore upgrade Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A section of Lakeshore Road between DeHart and McClure Roads will soon have sidewalks and a more pedestrian-friendly look after Kelowna council voted unanimously to support moving a $5.2-million upgrade to the top of the pile of city projects. The project has become a point of contention for residents in the area, particularly as Anne McClymont Elementary School sits directly on the stretch making it difficult for young students to traverse it safely. “Although this will impact the timeline of the other road projects in the area, this is the right thing to do,” said Coun. Colin Basran, who assumed the mayor’s chair for Monday’s council meeting in Walter Gray’s absence. Noting a temporary fix would not be a good use of city funds, Basran said the councillors who have

met with parents in the area are very aware of the concerns and are definitely prepared to act now, rather than wait seven years—the original timeline for the project.

‘‘

ALTHOUGH THIS WILL IMPACT THE TIMELINE OF THE OTHER ROAD PROJECTS IN THE AREA, THIS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. Coun Colin Basran

Some $700,000 has been pulled together to get preliminary design work underway and council has given city staff the go-ahead to get the project into the 2015 budget as a priority item. The city is promising curbs, sidewalks, gutters and lighting and parents are pushing for cycling lanes.

▼ FARMER MARKET VOTE

Parking is plentiful says market president Market from A1 District office, both with plenty of parking. Owing to the growing size of the mall, Wesle says it is impossible to secure more than a one year lease in the location, but members nonetheless appear to believe in the longstanding brand their current location offers is worth the risk. The market has been on the site for 18 years. He fears a disgruntled group may now split off from the current society,

leaving Kelowna with two farmers’ markets. “That would be the worst outcome that we would really be hoping to avoid,” he said. Tebbutt was offering a 15-year fixed rent lease with on-site bathrooms and running water. As the City of Kelowna is in favour of the new location, Wesle said he anticipated things like signage and even marketing support from the developer or local government would have easily been secured.

Local Olympian adds voice to head safety Barry Gerding EDITOR

Like most athletes competing today, the era of concussion diagnosis awareness is prevalent in the competitive ski world of Kelowna’s Kelsey Serwa. While Serwa’s sports injuries have been mainly to do with her knees, she says awareness of head injuries and the need to give your head a chance to recover from even the slightest perceived injury

has risen to a new level. “A lot of people do and have suffered concussions and don’t even realize it. I think we all have to realize that our brains are important. My issues have been with my knees and you can operate on those, but we only get one brain in our lives and it can’t be replaced,” Serwa said. “Injuries are inherent with what we do as ski racers, pushing the boundaries and limits…its’ a fine line between going too hard and finding that

sweet spot where you go fast and get that adrenaline rush we all seek but still being in control and safe.” Serwa will share her thoughts about concussion awareness and her silver medal winning experience at the recent Sochi Olympics as the guest speaker for an event being organized by BrainTrust Canada. The event will be the showing of a documentary about U.S. Olympic snowboarder Kevin

Pearce, called The Crash Reel, which follows his story of suffering a head injury prior to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and the slow, arduous recovery he underwent just to learn how to walk again after being in a coma for several weeks. Serwa said she’s aware of Pearce’s story but has never met him. And her boyfriend, also a competitive skier, has had his share of head injuries to deal with as well. Serwa said she will

give about a half-hour presentation with video of her Olympic experience in Sochi, and will autograph posters in the theatre lobby after the documentary is over. The Crash Reel will be shown Thursday, March 27, 6:30 p.m., at Kelowna Community Theatre. Sponsored by BMO, tickets are $12/ person available at any BMO branch in Kelowna, through www.braintrustcanada.com or at smart ticket.ca.

▼ LAKE COUNTRY

Cause of house fire found Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

A fire that destroyed a Lake Country townhome and damaged several others earlier this month started because of a fault in the fuel system on one

of two vehicles parked in front of the townhome complex on Powley Court. Lake Country fire chief Steve Windsor said his department’s investigation as well as insurance investigators pin-point-

ed the cause of the blaze that caused upwards of $500,000 in damage to two vehicles as well as several townhomes. Windsor said there appeared to be a malfunction in the fuel system in one of the vehicles parked in the driveway. When the resident tried to start the older model car, she noticed a small fire in the engine. Windsor said there was a fire extinguisher in the vehicle but by the time the resident got the pin out of the extinguisher, the fire had spread quickly and was out of control. “There was a bit of a fuel leak and it probably sparked when there was a short in the system,” said Windsor. “The car was left running and the electric fuel pump kept pumping fuel into the system.” Windsor said there was a small breeze that helped the fire spread to a second vehicle and then onto the townhouse’s vinyl siding. He said the resident did the right thing by getting away from the fire and calling the fire depart-

KEVIN PARNELL/LAKE COUNTRY CALENDAR

A FAULTY FUEL SYSTEM on the late model Trans Am has been ruled the cause of extensive damage to a townhome complex on Powley Court in Lake Country March 16. ment. “Sometimes in these situations the best thing is to get out of the vehicle,” he said. “Property can be replaced but a person’s life or serious burn injuries can’t be changed. The first thing is to get away.” A series of townhomes were damaged— the first two most serious-

ly—and the residents remain out of their homes. Windsor said the main townhome where the fire started will have to be gutted and suffered major damage while the neighbouring unit will also need to have floors, drywall, insulation and roofing replaced. He expects it will be

several months before the residents can return to their units. Several other units suffered smoke damage but the residents in those homes were able to return home last week. Windsor said the damage was limited by Lake Country fire crews and the natural conditions.

“It definitely could have been a lot worse,” he said. “We could have ultimately lost that whole side of the building if it had been very windy and it could have even spread to the neighbouring townhomes. We were very lucky and it was a good save for the guys (who fought the fire.)”

Women 4 Sustainability conference targets simplicity

Local conference runs three or four times per year, encouraging women to develop more sustainable lives. Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

As a columnist for the

Globe and Mail put it this weekend, many of us are “trying to cram a steamer trunk’s worth of living into a clutch-purse sized day” and this will soon have women in the Okanagan talking. Women 4 Sustainability is a local conference set up by the Fresh Outlook Foundation, generally to address sustainabil-

ity and how it applies to women in all walks of life. This spring, the topic of choice is simplicity. “We’re looking for topics that women from all sectors can enjoy, whether they’re in business, non-profit, government or academia,” said JoAnne de Vries, founder and CEO of the Okanagan-based Fresh Out-

look Foundation. The Foundation is perhaps best known for its annual Building Sustainable Communities Conference, a multi-day clearinghouse for ecological and cultural ideas generally attracting the local governance, community planning and academic crowd from around B.C. Women 4 Sustaina-

Court hears how teen’s body was found Trial from A1 The young man in the group, identified only as Clay in court, asked Ilic for his flashlight, and was denied, as the police officer had to use it himself. Around that time Ilic was also informed that the police dog team that was going to be dispatched had been cancelled. All four then started down the railway tracks. “We walked 15 feet and four-to-five males were hollering and yelling: ‘Are you looking for the missing girl?’” Ilic told the court. He learned they were the ones who had found Van Diest’s cell phone earlier that night, but as he started asking them more

questions, he was distracted. “I heard a male voice saying “Taylor. Taylor. Taylor,” he said. “I head the kids say, ‘run. run.’” Illic said they all ran toward the direction of the voices. “In a ditch by the railways tracks there was a young female and Clay and Zoe were on top of her, hugging her,” he testified. “Then Taylor’s mom went into the ditch.” As Van Diest lay stomach down, with the left side of her head on a steel pipe, they checked her breathing and she was covered by their jackets. Van Diest’s mother held her and repeated,

“you’re going to make it. You’ll survive. You’re going to make it,” said Ilic, who was brought to near tears several times during his testimony. Paramedics were called at some point and they put Van Diest on a gurney and transported her to Vernon General Hospital so she could be stabilized. He noted that when in the hospital room with Van Diest as she was being treated he saw marks on her neck, and her bottom lip appeared to be bitten, although not bleeding. In cross examination, Foerster’s lawyer Lisa Helps said to Ilic that it sounded like one of those cases where things “move quickly.”

Ilic agreed. Helps then asked him if he recalled taking anything from his pockets before he covered Van Diest with his jacket. He said that he removed a box of pens, which he discarded, and some keys which he put in his pocket. When she asked if he removed alcohol, or had been drinking on the night Van Diest was found, he said no. Crown counsel also called upon a nurse who collected the DNA from Van Diest, DNA that was later matched to Foerster. She recalled Van Diest being treated, and said she “just knew the person was quite sick.” The trial is expected to take up to three weeks.

MEMORY EXPLORER UBC student’s research examines the accuracy of recollections Megan Udala is completing a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in forensic psychology. As an undergraduate researcher, she is studying misinformation effects on memory – how the accuracy of a memory changes based on suggestive questioning, and whether positive or negative memories are better recollected. Her work has important practical implications to eyewitness testimony in the criminal justice system. Udala is the 2014 Undergraduate Student Researcher of the Year at UBC’s Okanagan campus.

bility is one evening of breakout sessions and conversations intended to spur dialogue, action and ideas. “Simplicity certainly is at the centre of discussions about sustainability,” said de Vries who selected the theme after noticing it’s also often the most overlooked. “Basically I think many of us are on this treadmill where we want more so we work more so we earn more so we can buy more,” she said. Jumping on this hamster wheel often leaves

women with less time for relationships, downtime and a healthy lifestyle. Statistics Canada estimates suggest 40 per cent of the food produced in Canada is going to waste—a $27 billion cost—because Canadians typically buy too much, cook too much and then must throw too much food away. And our approach to clothing is no better. “In the past, fashion was a seasonal thing. Now, with globalization, fashion is dictated by new designs that come out every few weeks,” said

DeVries. “Stores are restocked at least once a month.” From practical sessions on decluttering at home and at work to sessions on shopping and cooking more simply, Women 4 Sustainability should spur discussion on ways to reduce stress and have less impact on the planet. The event will run April 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Sunset Ranch. Tickets cost $20 each. Register online at Eventbrite.ca/women-4-sustainability.

ORL, unions settle contracts

, Okanagan - The Regional Library, the Professional Employees Association and the Canadian Union of Public Employees have reached new collective agreements that will see the continuation of service to library patrons with no interruptions. PEA bargains for more than 2,500 professionals across B.C., including the 30 that work for the Okanagan Regional Library chapter here. The new PEA agreement is a three-year deal that runs to the end of 2016, with wage increases pegged at two per cent, two per cent and 1.92 per cent each year, with some

minor improvements to benefits and language. “This is a fair and reasonable deal for our members. We appreciate the hard work of the bargaining committee and the support of our membership” said Scott McCannell, PEA executive director. CUPE Local 1123 represents 208 members who work for the Okanagan Regional Library. “This four-year deal includes wage increases of two per cent in each of the first three years and 1.8 per cent in the final year.  CUPE workers will also see some improvements to benefits and im-

portant changes to language, including simplification of call-out provisions,” said CUPE 1123 president Rose Jurkic. “I’m delighted with the news of ratification by all parties,” said Marilyn Harkness, chairwoman of the ORL’s personnel committee. “These negotiations were done in the spirit of collaboration, professionalism, and consensus; approaches which should serve the ORL well in the coming years,”  The two contracts are retroactive to Jan. 1 and will run to Dec. 31, 2016 for PEA and Dec. 31, 2017 for CUPE.

Tired? It could be adrenal gland problems Classic Shoes

A

drenal fatigue is one of the most common health disorders we see as naturopathic doctors. In today’s world of multi-tasking, multimedia and multi-roles, poor adrenal health results in fatigue, exhaustion and anxiety. Not surprisingly, it’s estimated that around 80 per cent of North Americans will suffer from adrenal fatigue at some point in their life. The adrenals are little glands that sit atop your kidneys, known as the “stress glands” they help you deal with stress, ranging from physical exercise to mental and emotional stress, such as relationships or work. Your adrenal glands produce several different hormones that are necessary for the production and regulation of healthy thyroid function and sex hormones (estrogen/progesterone/dhea/testosterone). They also produce the hormones that influ-

HEALTHY LIFESTYLES

Emina Jasarevic ence your ability to, have energy, fall asleep and stay asleep, metabolize fat, regulate blood sugar and support your immune system. Cortisol is one of the major hormones secreted by the adrenals to help your body manage stressful situations. Cortisol ideally follows a circadian rhythm, being high in the early morning and reaching a low point at night. Often, people with adrenal fatigue are exhausted in the morning after waking, crash in the afternoon and/or, can’t fall asleep at night because they are “wired and tired.” If this sounds like you, you might consider doing an adrenal saliva hor-

mone test. In some cases, individuals presenting with a “reversed” circadian rhythm, (for example, this commonly afflicts nightshift workers, such as nurses) can often shave a few years off their life expectancy if this is not corrected. Other common symptoms of adrenal fatigue can and do include: lethargy, sleep disturbance, being easily startled, feeling dizzy (low blood pressure, low blood sugar), low sex drive, muscle and joint pain, caffeine-dependence, weight gain (especially belly fat), poor immune system and new allergies, poor memory, unexplained fertility problems, food cravings, anxiety and more. Adrenal saliva hormone testing is consid ered to be the single best lab test for detecting adrenal fatigue. Saliva tests measure the level of cortisol at four different times throughout the day, along with several other important hor-

mones. Testing allows for an informed treatment plan to restore health to the adrenal glands, using lifestyle changes, specific high-dose vitamins, minerals and herbal formulations. However, treatments for adrenal health are not a one-size-fits-all. Identifying the cause of stress in your life (food sensitivities, hormone imbalance, recent divorce, a dying parent, a demanding career, etc.), and managing this stress is the first step towards healing. Taking care of your adrenal health, means taking care of yourself first. Restoring adrenal health is essential for healthy thyroid function, allowing for a smooth transition into mid-life, then into menopause and warding off chronic disease for a life of health and vitality. If you’d like to pursue saliva testing for adrenal fatigue, call your health care provider to book an appointment.

▼ OUR VIEW

Immunization a public concern

I

t didn’t take long for the furor 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. And that association once again drew an immediate 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 giving their children the simple tools that can protect them from life-threatening, or life-altering diseases. More so, 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. Fraser Health estimates the percentage of the population in the Chilliwack area with adequate immunization is around 70 per cent. That leaves a significant chunk of the population either choosing not to vaccinate, or failing to ensure their inoculations are up-to-date. There are no good reasons for either.

l m h o

Fears that vaccinations carry some harm have long been ex- m posed for what they are—paranoia cloaked in junk science. ▼ The bigger concern is complacency. We’ve come to expect that 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 pre- f ventable illnesses that we have n fought long and hard to protect i p our families from. A

Internationally financed green machine gathers in B.C. C anada’s sleek, imported green propaganda machine rolled into the capital recently for a couple of days of meetings. You wouldn’t have heard about it, because they didn’t stage any protests or press conferences. Instead they met quietly with selected reporters as well as politicians from both sides of the aisle. They didn’t invite me for some reason, but from what I can gather, it was a friendly networking session. When I speak of our U.S.directed environmental movement, many people still don’t know what I mean. They see the sign-waving on TV and assume it’s all spontaneous, driven by passionate volunteers.

It’s an industry now, and as with our automotive industry, Canada is a branch plant of the U.S.  The Victoria event was an annual conference called Organizing for Change, sponsored by Tides Canada. Thanks mainly to the work of B.C. researcher Vivian Krause, this offshoot of the U.S. Tides Foundation now at least identifies itself while it pulls B.C.’s political strings. Organizing for Change current-

ly includes Ecojustice, Greenpeace, Sierra Club B.C., ForestEthics Advocacy, ForestEthics Solutions, Georgia Strait Alliance, Dogwood Tom Initiative, Pembina InFletcher stitute, West Coast Environmental Law, Wildsight and Seattle-based Conservation Northwest. Tides is itself a front for wealthy charitable foundations based mostly in Seattle and California, funded by billionaires who see “saving” B.C. as their personal eco-project. Their hired activists met with En-

This was to demand heavy fees and choking regulations on water used for “fracking,” that nefarious gas drilling technology so demonized in fake documentaries and celebrity protests. Tides no longer attempts to hide its strategy of targeting energy development in B.C. and Alberta. Its tactics are well known, too. Environmentalists need high-profile wins, and the economic pain is best inflicted outside of the U.S., the biggest polluter in world history. Organizing for Change’s stated priorities for the year are the “last

Professional protesters are mainly just taking credit for the 2012 buyback of Shell’s coalbed gas licences around the headwaters of the Nass, Skeena and Stikine Rivers.

Int’l media prefer mono-news coverage To the editor: Until Malaysia Airlines MH370 went missing, I had no idea how little important news occurred each day. Perhaps the global media is suffering from

a post-Olympic-Games hangover and can’t get motivated to do any genuine investigative reporting. Journalists have always been thought of as highly respected profes-

sionals. Lately they seem content to dramatize (verb: represent something in a staged or theatrical manner) and regurgitate (verb: feed through the beak by regurgitating previously swallowed

food) the flimsy clues and dubious reports coming out of Malaysia. The principles of ethical journalism—truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountabil-

Migrant farm workers big contributors to Okanagan economy: Deserve better treatment To the editor: As spring draws near, farms across the Okanagan Valley are preparing for the arrival of approximately 1,200 Latin American and Caribbean migrant farmworkers. The vast majority of these men and women come from Mexico, with increasing numbers also traveling from Jamaica, Guatemala and Peru. They work in orchards, vineyards, ranches and nurseries, cultivating organic and conventional crops for local and global

consumption in jobs that would otherwise go unfilled. Most of these men and women are employed under Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program, also known as the SAWP. Originally introduced in Ontario in 1966, the SAWP was implemented in BC in 2004. According to the rules of SAWP, workers must live in housing provided by their employer. This housing is often on-farm, far from public transportation and urban centres,

which leaves migrants isolated and immobile. Migrants’ work permits are also tied to a single employer. This means that they are not free to seek other jobs or housing if their living arrangement is poor or if they face workplace abuse. In addition, many workers do not speak English and so their engagement with the rest of the community is further limited. The migrant men and women who work on Okanagan farms are integral members of our com-

munities, deserving of our respect and of consultation on the decisions that affect their lives. They leave behind their families, their homes, and their businesses to work on Okanagan farms. Many of these workers have been coming to Canada for decades, yet do not have the right to remain or bring their families. They deserve the support of our communities in their struggle for rights and dignity. They deserve a path to permanent resi-

dency and the right to bring their families with them to Canada. It is time we stop treating them as ‘temporary’ and recognize them for what they are—industrious members of our communities who contribute to our economic vitality and cultural diversity.   Elise Hahn & Amy Cohen, organizers, Radical Action with Migrants in Agriculture (RAMA)

I’ve written before about the distortions and evasions required to present such a fossil fuel fairy tale. Suffice it to say that while we have bus loads of protesters in B.C., you don’t see them in those benevolent petro-states Angola, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuela, Kuwait or Algeria. They’re not saving the whole planet, just the safe and lucrative parts. And as I mentioned after the protester-staged Neil Young concert tour,

it’s amazing how American oil and gas interests and Alaska oil tankers remain invisible to this sophisticated network.  NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert met with the green machine too. He wants all of B.C.’s groundwater mapped and measured deep into the Earth’s crust. That should take a while. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

t is time to prune your ornamental grasses if you have not done so by now.

going into the fourth season so they are well established. I believe in a couple of years they will need splitting up which seems like a daunting task; however, you would be surprised what you can do with a strong spade and an axe. It certainly is an easier job if it is done before they get too big and is amazing how energized they get from the proced-

ure. Simply dig out the entire clump, chop out a nice healthy piece about one-quarter the original size and replant that piece into the same spot with the soil around it amended with some organic material. It is now a definite fact my beautiful dwarf pampas did not survive the winter. I was hoping for a miracle but that did not occur. I dug it out this

weekend and sheared off all the foliage to be put in the green bin. The root actually looked like there was still some life in it but even though I had the urge to put it back in the ground I thwarted the idea and will purchase another fresh specimen in May. A reminder when working on any pampas grass you need to wear protection, not only gloves but eye protection and long sleeves. The fronds have razor sharp edges and pointy tips. The problem is I just can’t think of not having this beautiful plant in my

front yard now that I’ve experienced it for the past few years. For more than 50 years, I have been handing out gardening advice, including the fact that some plants just cannot stand frost of any kind even after being hardened off properly. What was I thinking when I put my beautiful Georgia jet sweet potato plant in my cold frame the other day and left it out all night. Even though the lid was down and there is a small heating pad in there it got to -1 C inside while outside it reached -5 C. I’m afraid my sweet

potato plant is no longer of this earth. Fortunately I have one small cutting I took shortly after getting the original plant from (well-known B.C. gardener) Brian Minter and I am treating it with kid gloves. When will this old gardener learn to practise what he preaches? I must say I am enjoying this cold frame and I think next year I will double the size of it; nothing like gardening in February and March. Don Burnett is a longtime local gardening expert.

Kelowna Flightcraft joins team chasing big RCAF contract Kelowna Flightcraft is joining a consortium trying to land a major contract with the Royal Canadian Air Forces . Team Spartan, comprised of Kelowna Flightcraft, Alenia Aermacchi, General Dynamics Canada and DRS Technologies is bidding for the Canada Fixed Wing Search and Rescue program contract. The locally-based company is a leading Canadian aircraft in-service support provider. With heavy maintenance facilities and support shops at the Kelowna airport and in Hamilton, Ontario, Flightcraft provides full-service aircraft maintenance, including overhaul and modification, for its own fleet of aircraft, as well as customers such as the RCAF, WestJet and Canadian North Airlines, and commercial air carriers from around the world. Working with Team Spartan’s ISS integrator, General Dynamics Canada, Flightcraft will provide long-term maintenance, repair and overhaul as part of its role in the group, as well as engineering and supply chain support services for the C-27J FWSAR fleet across Canada. The company has been providing full in-service support, including in-depth inspections and

structural repair, component repair and overhaul, engineering, technical investigations, modifications and upgrades, and manufacturing and assembly of prototypes for the RCAF’s CC-115 Buffalo and CC-138 Twin Otter FWSAR fleets since May 2009. Through its Allied Wings operation, it is also responsible for providing primary and advanced multi-engine and rotary wing pilot training (with full operational support) to the RCAF under a performance based contract at its facility in Southport, Manitoba. “Kelowna Flightcraft is an invaluable addition to our already strong Canadian FWSAR team,” said Ben Stone, president and chief executive officer of Alenia Aermacchi’s North American business unit. “This is a company that understands the dedication required to maintain search and rescue assets. Kelowna Flightcraft has a history of supporting RCAF aircraft and is committed to providing the high level of service required by a critical capability like Search and Rescue. We look forward to announcing more Canadian partnerships as we get closer to the release

Need for economic development change

“D

isruption breeds change” could be a mantra for those of us who are growing weary asking question after question about the environmental elements in our daily life that both confuse and test our intellect. Living in West Kelowna and being quite pleased with myself for selecting this location for my wife and I after much deliberation and examination, I have found myself joyous on the one hand for our accreditation as a provincial new municipality and on the other, finding myself concerned developers, leasing agents and property managers seem to be missing the boat when it comes to bringing a mix of logical, practical retailers to the area. The retailers we need go beyond the “big box” syndrome we find ourselves mired in. We need to focus on independent retailers, such as home décor and comfort food restaurants to name a few. Do you realize that video rental stores are gone, replaced by a cadre of dollar stores and seemingly, a half dozen or more drugstores? There is also an abun-

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young dance of liquor outlets on Westside. I can’t help but long for some creativity and innovative thinking from all the relevant development players that have a clear responsibility to contribute to West Kelowna’s economic development. That would give value and give us on the Westside the foundation for a provincial model community, not a cookie-cutter facsimile of what we shouldn’t be. It was pointed out to me yesterday by a local concerned citizen that perhaps we should look at Chilliwack and its recent mall developments, such as Garrison Village, that hinge on filling the gaps in community economic development with sensible independent retailers that both attract and fill a need in that community’s landscape. We don’t want anymore fast food outlets that want us to believe their products are critical for a

healthy lifestyle. We are desirous of creating a showcase community here on the Westside, a community that we can be truly proud of, not only for the mix of residents, but for the beauty of the landscape and developments as well as intelligent well-thought out and planned unique and creative retailers are drawn to open their doors knowing their lease arrangement will not bury them in less than a single year of operation. What I would like to see happen quickly, quietly and effectively would be to have a West Kelowna community economic development task force put in place with a solid mix of relevant stakeholders to explore such key elements. They could include an economic development scorecard, a district branding strategy, focus groups to assess consumer wants and needs in a variety of purchasing categories and a series of economic development components that would lead to creation of a dynamic strategy and action plan. I don’t buy into the theory that Westside residents must go to Kelowna to shop. Are we making an as-

sumption that Kelowna retailers have everything we might need on their shelves? How silly is that? We do need an economic strategy designed to showcase the strengths and attractiveness of the West Kelowna landscape so existing business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs can readily see the merit in innovation and creativity in their thought process-

‘‘

WE ARE NOT HOISTING A BANNER SAYING TO THE WORLD WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

es that will contribute to cementing our merchant critical mass as a viable, attractive and exciting recipe for the future. In addition, a “showcase” community could attract new residents and new entrepreneurs who want to share this special place. You might ask why I am writing about community economic de-

velopment issues in his entrepreneurship column? Driving into Kelowna for meetings each day, I passed the new strip mall (on WFN land) when it was under construction. What did I see when the sign went up? A dollar store, liquor store, drugstore were all planned. These were not the high-end quality retailers I was led to believe would be housed in this area to add value to the Westside economy. So, I have felt prompted to stand on my soap box and ask for a regrouping of thought for the greater good. I know of a West Coast restaurant chain that would like to explore a satellite location and specialty home décor and kitchen retailers that would investigate the Westside as possible locations, but we are not hoisting a banner saying to the world we are open for business. The developers are shying away from the Westside because there is a perception of a poor attitude toward development.

RCAF contract would help create jobs here and across Canada Flightcraft A13 of Canada’s FWSAR request for proposals.” Dave Ibbetson, vice-president of General Dynamics Canada added: “An already strong Team Spartan just got stronger. Kelowna Flightcraft brings its best in class MRO capabilities to

the team, along with an in-service support skill set and dedication to quality that matches our own. He said he felt Flightcraft is the right fit for providing the level of service the RCAF needs. “We are honoured to be joining such a strong team,” said Tracy Medve, president of Kelow-

na Flightcraft. “We have been serving the RCAF, supporting their current fleet of search and rescue aircraft for a number of years and have significantly improved reliability and operational availability of this important fleet of aircraft. We understand the demands of the job and believe the C-27J

is the right aircraft for Canada’s FWSAR needs. For Kelowna Flightcraft, this is a great opportunity to become part of Alenia’s global supply chain and add the C-27J to the already impressive list of aircraft we support.” The Air Force says Canada’s search and rescue teams deserve an air-

craft they can count on no matter the conditions or distance. Thanks to its rapid response time, speed, size, power, endurance and manoeuvrability, the C-27J can reach the most remote and austere mountainous, northern and Maritime locations at a high speed and stay at the

search area for extended periods of time. These are the characteristics that have already made the C-27J the right solution for 12 nations, including Peru. Peru recently selected the C-27J to carry out a variety of missions including search and rescue, in part, because of its abil-

ity to operate effectively in the most difficult conditions including the Andes Mountains. The U.S. Coast Guard recently acquired 14 C-27Js as part of its search and rescue fleet. Team Spartan’s proposal would support hundreds of long-term, hightech jobs across the country, as well as investments in infrastructure and technology, making it an outstanding economic stimulus for Canada’s aerospace sector, it says. Getting the contract would enable enhanced capability growth in Canada, delivering high-quality and low-risk services.

Q A

Bunions, also known as hallux valgus, is a common condition where the big toe drifts towards the second toe and the joint at the base of the big toe enlarges. They are often inherited from our parents and are worsened by wearing tight shoes. Bunions can be tender to touch and painful when walking. There are several non-surgical options to help bunions. The most important thing is to wear shoes that are wide enough to accommodate the bunions and toes. Foot orthotics and custom silicone toe spacers can support the foot and big toe while improving alignment. Rest and ice can also reduce the pain around the big toe. If you have concerns about bunions and would like a free-consultation, please contact one of our Certified Orthotists.

Q

Dad wants to hire someone who’s advertising their care services in the paper. Is this a good idea? I have concerns about a stranger in the home.

A

I understand your concerns and they are valid. Investigating and setting up care for a senior is similar to hiring someone to care for our children. Whether you’re hiring an individual or private home care company, requirements such as worksafeBC insurance, tax remittances, a criminal reference check including the vulnerable sector done within the last year as well as three professional references are minimum considerations when hiring. Someone that is a registered business has business/ liability/worksafeBC insurance provides you with designations and references related to caring for others, and can provide care when you need it is a care provider. Someone who is unable to provide these may be in interested in something else.

Q A

How much does it cost to have Oxy-Dry® clean my carpet?

Some cleaning companies advertise prices that do not reflect the full cost of their service. Environmental fees, limitations on room sizes, moving furniture, certain stains, deodorizer, travel charges and extra charges for soiled carpet may be added. Protector is extra too and because the factory applied protector wears off, it should always be reapplied when cleaned. Upselling to the full service is inevitable and the bargain price that attracted you initially is usually much more than what you expected. Oxy-Dry® takes a refreshing approach to pricing. With square foot pricing you only pay for the area we clean. We include everything for a fresh and odorless clean so there is never any upselling or unnecessary charges. The Oxy-Dry® system will include our exclusive ozone boost system naturally eliminating germs, bacteria, viruses and most odors as well as eradicating dust mites. Durashield protector is included to ensure a longer lasting clean. In addition, we move and replace most furniture, include spot and stain removal and offer a 30-day warranty. There’s more – carpets will dry in 30-60 minutes! It’s true – Oxy-Dry® cleans better, dries faster and stays clean longer!

Q A

What are the key factors in determining by ability to get a mortgage when purchasing a home?

Each case is different, but generally Banks/lenders are looking at these four determining components: 1) Income--Do you have sufficient income to cover the monthly mortgage payment plus all your existing debt obligations (ie. car payment/student loans). Do you have an employer or are you self-employed? 2) Down payment--How much down payment do you have available? Down payment can be from own resources or gifted from a family member and can even be borrowed from a line of credit in some cases. Some lenders also provide an option where a portion of your down payment can be borrowed. Generally, a minimum of 5% down is required. 3) Credit Score--Is your credit score strong enough? Have you proven that you pay your loans, bills, and credit cards on time and agreed? Even if you have large balances on your credit card, make sure you at least make the minimum payment each month! 4) Property--Does the property you are wanting to mortgage fit within the lenders guidelines (ie, acgreage, farm, condo, residential home)? For further information, please get in touch if you have ANY questions. Remember our services are complimentary to you and we only get paid by the lender if we get you the mortgage you want!

The importance of positive thinking when caring for a senior

A

s you all know by now, my life is somewhat stressful these days as I care for my aging mom. Each day brings a change in her condition and with it a new challenge. As I passed through many daily changes this past week, I began to feel that stress was taking over my life. It is like the big boogey man under the bed, something that you can’t grasp, but that you just know is there. I could not see the forest for the trees so to speak. What results from this state is a feeling that you have no control; that you are not able to cope; that you must get away. It doesn’t really matter where, anywhere you can feel less stressed would be fine. Recently, as one major difficulty was resolved, I stepped back and observed myself like I was looking at a friend. I could see that I was letting these external circumstances take a hold of my thinking and that the story I was telling myself was causing my reaction

SENIORS’ CONCERNS

Marjorie Horne and my inability to stay in the moment. We have all heard that stress is an internal process resulting from how we react rather than respond to what is going on around us. Yes, I have a lot going on, but if I really want to help myself, and very likely those around me, it is up to me how I monitor my reactions to the events taking place. If everything that is happening to you is a lesson for your own learning, what is the lesson? Some of us are better worriers than others. I have watched my mom for many years worry about things that might happen and drive herself to distraction thinking about those possibilities. I see that I have the same pattern and perhaps the gift is that it would be valuable to change my way of thinking.

I will tell you that I have read all the books and learned many techniques over the past 25 years, but of course the key to change is daily practise of what you know. So last night, I went to spend some time with my new favourite man, Dr. Mike Evans. By chance discovery, I found his You Tube channel at: www.youtube.com/user/DocMikeEvans. An innovative preventive health physician in Toronto, he has developed a health lab that uses creative whiteboards to teach the public about simple methods to enhance their wellness through research-based facts. I love it. Please check his link for practical solutions to many health questions you may have. As I pondered my current difficulty in practicing basic stress management and keeping some balance in my daily activities as I care for my mom, his entertaining and helpful whiteboard called The Single Most Important Thing You Can Do For Your Stress brought

me back to remembering that it is how I respond to what I cannot control that makes the difference. Jumping the fast train to Chattanooga might not be the answer. Mindfulness, choosing one thought over another in the moment, is under our control. I find myself going to the future, wondering how long I can manage all this, afraid for myself and my husband and as the fear increases, of course my ability to cope decreases. Solidifying in my mind what I can do for myself to stay balanced and actually doing it is up to me. I am a master breathwork practitioner and one of the things I do in my business is teach others how to use conscious awareness of their breath to improve their health and well being. I find myself many days lately holding my breath and forgetting to practice what I preach. Our attitude, our outlook on what is going on in our lives, determines our response. I began to think about what I was grateful for, in-

stead of worrying about what I had to do next. It was choice to stop feeling somewhat sorry for myself and look at who I have in my life and how incredibly supported I am, people such as my mom’s daily caregivers, Gabe and Sandie, who come in to give me the respite I need as I try to keep running a business. Then there are the most wonderful palliative care nurses, Kathleen and Anne whose empathy and ability to listen give me the strength to realize I am never alone. The humor of some of the crazy moments are not lost on these two, and we laugh together with great gusto at the fragility of life and the cards it deals you. It feels so good to laugh out loud. Just do it, get a good belly laugh going all by yourself if you have to or better yet, with anyone who’ll join you. There’s my beautiful sister Jeanie, who calls every day to see how I am doing and brainstorms solutions with me, coming over bag in hand to stay the night whenever I ask. I have also been intro-

Tele-workshops to provide dementia support Are your family or friends living with dementia? If so, you may have questions about how to help them. The non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. has plenty of answers. And now assistance is being offered through a pair of free tele–workshops next month. The first, How to Speak Up About Dementia and Make Changes to the System, explains what you can do to make

long-lasting social change for people with dementia and their families. Speakers Barbara Lindsay and Rebecca Morris will provide the tools needed to advocate for a dementia strategy in B.C.—an important plan given the rapidly rising incidence rate of this pressing health issue. The tele-workshop will run April 1 at 7 p.m. You can also get some practical tips at the second tele-workshop, How to Support a Friend Who

Has Dementia or is a Caregiver. It will offer ideas for communicating with a person with dementia, for offering support and providing options on the kind of help the person with dementia, their caregiver or family might appreciate. The tele-workshop is not aimed at primary caregivers. It will run April 23 at 2 p.m. Connecting to the sessions is as easy as visiting momentum.adobeconnect.com/alzheimerbc

(enter as a guest) or phoning toll-free 1-866-9947745, then entering pass code 1122333 when prompted. Tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but are also open to health-care providers. Recognizing that many caregivers are unable to attend in-person workshops, the sessions can be accessed via web or telephone. At the end of the tele-workshop, partici-

pants have an opportunity to ask questions and share with others who are in similar situations. For more information or to view shortened recordings of past sessions go to www.alzheimerbc. org/We-Can-Help/Telephone-Workshops.aspx. For more information on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, which affect one in 11 Canadians over the age of 65, visit the Society website at www.alzheimerbc. org.

duced to a husband that I never knew—one who can empty a commode most ably or pick up my mom and dance her gently over to her bed as she smiles and hugs his big shoulders as they sway together. What a joy that brings to my heart to see and to know that he is getting the chance to say good bye to his own mom who died at 56, without him being able to be there with her. As Dr. Mike says, just keep things simple by telling yourself short to do’s: I will swim today, I will walk the dog, I will sit and have a quiet lunch and chew slowly. Someone said your life’s happiness is determined 10 per cent by what happens to you and 90 per cent by how you respond. I headed off for a

lunch the next day with my girl buddies and went for a pedicure after that. I knew I would be better for it and my caregiving would be too when I got home. And I will remember to breathe and I will remember to laugh, because even when this story is done, new challenges await. It is always going to be about how consistently I commit to staying balanced through the more difficult opportunities that life presents that will determine my own state of well being. Thanks mom.

Rockets take 2-0 lead to Kennewick Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The first two games of the Western Hockey League playoffs on home ice went pretty much according to plan for the Kelowna Rockets. Now the Canadian Hockey League’s No. 1 team will look to carry that momentum into hostile territory on Tuesday night, as the Rockets head south for Games 3 and 4 against the Tri-City Americans. With an always vocal and emotional crowd behind the Ams at the Toyota Center in Kennewick, Wash., Rockets coach Ryan Huska said a good start for his club is imperative. “The first 10 minutes will be critical for us,” Huska said. “They always come out very hard in that building. The energy level in there, the noise in there, they feed off that, they’re a momentum team, so I think they’re going to

‘‘

come out very hard on Tuesday. We have to be willing to match that and try to keep it up for 60 minutes.” Leading up to the Western Conference quarterfinal the Rockets, to a man, pointed at Americans’ goalie Eric Comrie, as the key to the outcome of the series. And while Comrie lived up to his billing as one of the league’s best with 77 saves over two games at Prospera Place,

the Rockets found enough cracks in his armour for a pair of 3-1 wins. Kelowna forward Ryan Olsen, who scored the game winner Sunday night, said the Rockets need to continue to put pressure on the Ams’ stopper to be successful this week in Washington. “We want to get pucks on this guy, he’s not going to give us too many opportunities, that’s been our game plan, to just keep shooting the puck,” Olsen said. “They’re going to come out hard, so we just need to stick to our game plan and good things will happen.” Sunday’s win featured the first Western Hockey League goal for Rockets’ rookie Joe Gatenby, an insurance marker on a shot from the point in the second period. Previously, the 16-year-old blueliner had no goals and six assists in 45 career games. “When it went in it felt pretty nice,” Gatenby said.

WARREN HENDERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

RYAN OLSEN and the Kelowna Rockets will visit Eric Comrie and the Tri-City Americans in Game 3 of their Western Hockey League playoff series Tuesday night in Kennewick, Wash. “I went the whole season without getting one, so it felt pretty good to get it out of the way. To finally chip in and get a goal is nice, especially in a game so important.” Unlike last season’s poor playoff start against

Seattle when they slipped into a 3-0 deficit, the Rockets are in a vastly better position with a twogame lead. Gatenby looks for the Rockets to build on what were a pair of solid efforts on home ice.

“It’s what we wanted starting off with two wins,” Gatenby said. “Playoffs is a different season, we knew that. The guys were down 3-0 last year after a great season, so it’s nice to get the two wins to start, and that’s

what we want to do is carry it forward and hopefully finish it off in Tri.” Game 4 will be played Wednesday in Kennewick, with a fifth game, if needed, Friday night at Prospera Place. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Okanagan College Coyotes drop two to defending champs After getting snowed out on Saturday in Kamloops, the Okanagan Coyotes opened the Canadian College Baseball Conference season on Sunday afternoon at Elks Stadium, dropping doubleheader to the defending champion Prairie Baseball Academy (PBA) Dawgs. In Game 1, Coyotes starter Tanner Collins kept the Dawgs off balance,

allowing his offense to get on the board first in the fourth inning.   The Dawgs got to Collins in the sixth after tying the game at one in the top of the fifth.  Collins made way for Brandon Becking after allowing the Daw-

gs to load the bases. Becking then gave up a bases clearing double to Adam Revel as the Dawgs scored three in the inning to take a 4-1 lead.  In the top of the seventh the Dawgs scored four more times and

claimed the opener, 8-3. In the second game of the twin bill, the Coyotes got on the board first with a run in the bottom of the first inning as Derek Shedden walked with the bases loaded to score Bryan Elias.  After the Dawgs tied the game in the third off starter Joel Lamont, the teams were scoreless until the top of the sixth. 

With Zach Burlon coming out of the pen, the Dawgs scored three unearned runs in the top of the sixth and held on for a 4-1 victory.   Garrett Wiese finished with two hits for the Coyotes. OC will host the Dawgs and the University of Calgary Dinos in a weekend series beginning on Friday at Elks.

THE OKANAGAN Rockets celebrate the B.C. Major Midget League title Saturday in Burnaby following a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Northwest Giants.

Ok Rockets win B.C. title; next, Alberta Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Even before the puck dropped on the 2013-14 season, the Okanagan Rockets made it clear that nothing less than winning the B.C. Major Midget League title would be considered an acceptable outcome. The Rockets delivered on those expectations by knocking off the Vancouver Northwest Giants over the weekend in a tight, hard-fought league championship series in Burnaby. The Rockets, who lost to the Giants in a heartbreaker in last year’s championship, gained a measure of revenge with back-to-back wins for a 2-0 sweep in the best-ofthree final. It was the Rockets’ second BCMML title and first since the spring of 2006. Okanagan toughed out a 2-1 victory on Friday night, then sealed the deal with another onegoal verdict, 4-3 over the Giants on Saturday. For the second series in a row, Jake Kryski notched the decisive goal, breaking a 3-3 tie five minutes into the third per-

iod, sending the Rockets to victory. Okanagan goaltender Brendan Barry was nothing short of stellar both nights, blocking 78 of 82 shots fired his way. As always, the Rockets had some solid individual efforts but head coach Mack O’Rourke pointed to both team play and commitment to the cause as the main keys to success. “The players were unbelievable in buying into our system and accepting their roles,” O’Rourke said. “Some guys obviously didn’t play as much as others, but they were all committed to what we asked of them. In those situations, you can have guys who can be a little selfish and put the themselves ahead of the team…we didn’t have any of that. It was a total buy-in and a real credit to every one of our players.” During the regular season, the Rockets let opportunities slip and managed just a single point against the defending champion Giants in the two games played in Burnaby. O’Rourke said those setbacks benefitted his club come playoff time.

“It was a season of hard work and being able to learn from experiences like that,” he said. “We let leads slip down there and allowed (the Giants) to tie us in one game and beat us in the other. Those moments I think were great learning experiences and helped us hang on and get through these games.” Rockets’ GM David Michaud said a hardfought win in the previous series against the Valley West Hawks, including a 7-6 nail-biter in Game 3, added another layer of playoff toughness to his team. “That win over the Hawks really galvanized our group,” Michaud said. “I don’t think the Giants experienced that kind of intensity in their series. We played in a lot of big games this year and I think it showed.” As for star rookie Tyson Jost, the Rockets’ leading scorer—both in the regular season and playoffs—was ecstatic with the win. “Waking up as champions is probably one of the better feelings in life,” Jost wrote Sunday morning on his Twitter account, “so proud of the boys.”

Michaud, who is in his fifth season with the team, was happy for each and every player on the Rockets—but perhaps no more than for captain Branden Wagner and defenceman Gen Bryshun, both threeyear members of the program. “Those two guys have been with us for three years and have been a huge part of us building towards this championship,” Michaud said. “Seeing those guys celebrate, I feel especially good for them.” Okanagan will next visit the Alberta champs, April 4 to 6, for the right to represent the Pacific region at the Telus Cup national midget hockey championship, April 21 to 27 to in Moose Jaw, Sask. The Lloydminster Bobcats and Red Deer Chiefs are currently playing off for the Alberta title. “We’ll be busy getting ready for whoever comes out of there,” said O’Rourke. “Regardless, it will be two great hockey teams going at it in a three-game struggle. We’re looking forward to it.” The Rockets will leave for Alberta on Thursday, April 3.

Heat soccer men sign Coquitlam product, Shaun Pilcher The UBC Okanagan Heat men’s soccer squad further bolstered its roster for the first season of Canada West competition with the addition of Shaun Pilcher. The 6-foot-1 centreback form Heritage Woods Secondary has been a standout on the Coquitlam Ford-Metro Barca squad during the past few years, as well as the Coquitlam Ford-Metro Sparta squad who won the U18 national championship last October in St. John’s. “We are very happy that Shaun has decided to join our program,” said Heat coach Dante Zanatta. “After having him train and play with us those recommendations were correct, Shaun

is very good in the air and has a good understanding of the game and over time can become a dominating defender in Canada West. One of the most important factors of signing him was the way he and his family handled the recruitment process being up font and honest throughout the process, which lends to a great person and player.” A native of South Africa, Shaun and his family moved to Coquitlam in 2004, and he has become a student of the game ever since. It is expected that Shaun will bring a physical presence to the centreback position for the Heat, but he hopes to bring a lot more than just physicality when he steps foot on the pitch this coming fall. “I think my greatest

alone to beat the goalie on a snap shot to the top corner. That second period lead held up until 3:04 remained in regulation time when Vancouver scored on a scramble in front of the net to send the game into an extra period.

Getting up and active with PAL Spring is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf and start getting active. Introducing regular physical activity into your life is an important first step towards better health, a happier mindset, and more. The whole family will benefit from increased activity and getting on the road to a healthier lifestyle. There are so many known benefits to physical activity and an active lifestyle. Among them are a reduced risk of heart disease, premature death and stroke. Being active has also been proven to help improve self-esteem and confidence, help you sleep better, increase your energy and reduce depression, among many other things. Furthermore, it helps maintain functional independence, mobility, and bone health. For many of us, it can be quite daunting to take that first step towards an active lifestyle. And it can be more challenging to start something new without any help. The good news is residents of BC have access to a free physical activity counselling service called the Physical Activity Line (PAL). Through a phone call or online, qualified exercise professionals are available to provide exercise and physical activity advice and help you develop a customized physical activity plan for every member of the family, from children to older adults. When it comes to physical activity, more is better. To achieve the health benefits, it is important to try and progress towards the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, which recommend at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day for children and youth and 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity activity each week for adults. Adults and older adults should also add muscle- and bone-

strengthening activities that work the major muscle groups at least twice a week to help with balance and prevent falls for those with mobility impairments. Physical activity doesn’t have to mean playing a sport or going to the gym. Playing a family game of tag, going for a swim or taking a walk outside with the family pet or to the store to get groceries count towards the physical activity recommendations. Try out something new; you may find your new favourite activity! In any case, you’re bound to have some fun and feel like a happier and healthier you. The Physical Activity Line is available Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m in the Lower Mainland, toll-free at 1-877-725-1149. For more information, visit www.physicalactivityline.com or email info@physicalactivity.com.

Other physical activity resources include ParticipACTION (www.participACTION.com) and Healthy Families BC (www.healthyfamiliesbc.ca).

The BC Government is now off-loading our recycling decisions to Toronto.

Under its new regulations, the BC Government has set up an association led by big corporations to take over the local Blue Box recycling program throughout BC. If you look closely, you’ll see that of seven board members, six are executives of Toronto-based multi-national corporations, with the seventh weighing in from Montreal. How do you like that, British Columbia? This means, unlike the current program run locally by BC municipalities, this new program will be managed not by people whose first responsibility is our local environment, but rather, their Bay St. profits. That can’t be a good thing for BC. The most perplexing thing is that we currently have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, and costs BC homeowners just

$35 a year on average. The new proposed system does not guarantee to keep our local environment as its first priority, nor does it guarantee that there won’t be job losses here in BC. It doesn’t guarantee service levels, or say anything about how big business will pass along the costs to you when you go to pick up a pizza or buy groceries. Yikes! Perhaps this is why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to sign onto the new program, calling it a “scam.” Given that, maybe it’s time you called Premier Clark to keep BC’s environmental decisions right here in BC where they belong.

What’s going on here?

Email Christy Clark at premier@gov.bc.ca or call 250-387-1715. For more info, visit RethinkItBC.ca. #RethinkItBC. This Message is brought to you by:
