Hay bales destroyed in arson attack A Riske Creek ranch suffered fire damage last week after 20 to 25 round bales of hay were set on fire. At 12:43 p.m. on Thursday, March 20, the Williams Lake RCMP received a report someone had set fire to a stack of hay on the ranch. When police talked with  the

owner of the hay they learned he was working in the area until Wednesday at about 3 p.m. An employee returned to the area on Friday at about 2:30 p.m. and found the hay on fire. RCMP said because the hay was tightly wound it burned very slowly.  It is estimated the fire had

been going since at least Thursday night and that a backhoe was used to separate the burning bales from the others. “The burned bales were valued between $1,500 and $2,000,” RCMP said, adding had the fire not been found, the total value of the hay lost could have been close to $20,000.

Police also said there were quad tracks in the snow and mud travelling from the direction of Farwell Canyon road ending at a gate close to the hay. The matter is still under investigation. If anyone has information they are asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or Crimestoppers.

POLICE: Briefs

Through the reader’s lens

Motorcycle taken from locked shop Theft and collisions were among the gamut of 80 calls Williams Lake RCMP responded to during the weekend. Friday, March 21 At 7:35 p.m. police received a report of a theft from the Kallyn Road area. A motorcycle was  stolen described as a 450 CR Honda 2011 with black chrome with value of $10,000.  The motorcycle was in a locked shop at the time of the theft. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or Crimestoppers. Saturday, March 22 At 10:45 a.m. on March 22 police received reports of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 97 at Jacobson Road. Police attended the scene.   Fresh snow was falling, roads were greasy yet visibility was good. A southbound blue 1999 Ford Taurus lost control and spun into the northbound lane, colliding with a white 1997 Dodge Caravan towing  a Ubuilt trailer. The Ford struck the rear driver’s side of the Dodge sending both vehicles crashing into the no-post A3

barriers in the opposite lanes of travel. There were no injuries, yet, both vehicles, including the trailer, were written off with extensive damage, estimated to be $16,000. Debris was strewn across the snow covered highway. All tires were rated winter or mud and snow. Police said speed was a contributing factor and one of the drivers was issued a violation ticket for speed relative to conditions. Emergency Health Services attended, clearing all persons involved. Police received a report of a single vehicle collision on Dog Creek Road near Shaw Road at 11:17 a.m.  The driver of a vehicle  was turning from Shaw Road, and did not have traction  with  the vehicle due to road conditions, resulting in the vehicle  sliding across the road into a telephone pole. There were no injuries to the lone occupant of the vehicle, although there was relatively minor damage to the hood and bumper. Police said the vehicle had good studded winter tires. The vehicle was towed.

Likely wants community fire hall Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer The Likely District Volunteer Fire and Rescue Society is setting its sights on getting a fire hall. Formed in 1994, with two 1,000-gallon pumper trucks and one four by four 350 gallon pumper trunk in its possession, first responder Marie Hampton said it’s time to get the equipment out of the elements and into a proper hall. “We have seven first responders and three quarters of them have basic fire certifica-

just need a good start and we are a third of the way there.”

The society has a piece of property at the junction of Spooner and Keithley Creek Roads. There are two levels on the property, which makes it ideal, although it needs to be cleared. One of the society’s founding members, Sue Taylor, said at 81 years of age she cannot be an active responder, but she is still involved with the fundraising. “We have our ambulance and our seven responders can respond, we just cannot respond to fires yet.” Once a fire hall is

built, the responders can receive more training and will be able to respond to fires within a 13-kilometre radius. Members hope to start out with a small hall that could grow as the community grows, Hampton said. To further the fundraising efforts, Cindy Nelson at Dockside Haircuts is holding a raffle until the end of April to raise funds for the new hall and is encouraging any local business to donate. “Even building supplies would be great,” said Nelson, who also lives in Likely.

Free press can, of course, be good or bad, but, most certainly without freedom, the press will never be anything but bad. - Albert Camus

End of an era in health care

Community building

f it isn’t one thing it’s a dozen something elses. The mainstream media has been abuzz with the downed Malaysian jet, the unexpected resignations of federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and Alberta Premier Alison Redford. Going relatively unnoticed is the expiry of the current Health Care Accord on March 31. The Accord  is the deal between the federal government and the provinces that sets funding and health care service delivery agreements. Ottawa is unilaterally replacing it French with the CanaConnection dian Health and Diana French Transfer ( CHT). According to the Council of Canadians and other watchdog groups, this could mean the end of the medicare we know and love because, under CHT, the feds will be contributing less to the system every year. Former Finance Minister Jim Flaherty was talking $36 billion less by 2024. Without adequate financial and supervisory input from the federal government, provincial plans could fall apart, leaving us paying more for fewer services. That could mean everything from fewer doctors, less services for the elderly, less coverage in mental health and prescription drugs, you name it.   The provinces’ options would be to raise taxes, and/or premiums, and/or cut services, or privatize the system. Most of us take our health care for granted. Maybe we won’t know what we’ve got ‘til it’s gone. Starting on Monday, a number of concerned groups in a number of provinces are holding protests to call public attention to the issue. *** A recent “study”  in Cities Journal (a publication unknown to me) that ranked Williams Lake as a poor place to live is so badly researched it is silly. It  jumped from the 1800s to the present, ignoring the 1900s in between. You’d think that after living in the Cariboo for over 60 years I’d know March weather is capricious.  So why am I so grumpy that it snows in the mornings when it’s supposed to be spring?

e are very lucky in the Cariboo to have so many wonderful community organizations that serve the people of our region. These organizations are successful because of the help of dedicated volunteers and administrators who take community service to the next level. Our government is committed to invest in non-profit organizations that benefit the broader community through the Community Gaming Grant program. It was wonderful to see $245,000 of Community Gaming Grants presented just last month to MLA organizations that Musings work in communities in the CariCoralee Oakes boo. This funding is going to some excellent causes including groups that will assist aboriginal youth in Quesnel, educational programs in 100 Mile House and health associations and women’s societies’ right here in Williams Lake. Did you know community gaming grants are now available for arts and culture and sports groups? This is a great opportunity for non-profit groups that help advance our vibrant arts scene and active living to take advantage of provincial funding to provide additional programs to benefit our community. Our government is also investing $750,000 for the BC Arts Council Scholarship, providing students across B.C. enrolled in full-time fine arts degrees or diploma programs up to $6,000 of scholarship funding per year. There are so many gifted young British Columbia artists and we are ensuring they can pursue their fullest potential with this increased funding. Application deadline for the BC Arts Council scholarship is April 30, and forms can be found online at Applications for the arts and culture and sporting groups Community Gaming Grants are being taken now until May 31, 2014. More information can be found online at There is no doubt that funding young artists and volunteer based organizations in our region will continue to help bind our communities together and help build a more vibrant, healthier and stronger Cariboo.Coralee Oakes is the MLA for Cariboo North and is the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.



Our Viewpoint

Rethink recycling program The provincial push for a producerpay recycling system is based on the concept of charging manufacturers whose products contribute to the waste stream, such as plastic packaging. But the soon to become governmentmandated program is going to penalize some unfairly, including citizens. For instance, it will hit the newspaper industry with a 20 cent per kilogram cost for its “packaging” – the very paper the newspapers are printed on. That vested interest aside, it’s debatable whether the new system will achieve its environmental goals, while simultaneously driving up costs for consumers. Although the MMBC collection system may have benefits for communities that currently do not have adequate curbside recycling programs, it is not needed in Greater Victoria, where the city has been achieving high rates of waste diversion through its own recy-

cling collection. Maintaining Victoria’s current program is good for the environment, and residents who receive curbside pickup of glass containers and other recyclables that MMBC wants separated. Local consumers will effectively pay the cost of recycling twice, as producers build the price of the MMBC program into their products, and taxpayers foot the bill for curbside pickup. Though MMBC recently provided exemptions for small businesses, the program will negatively impact local economic engines such as berry farming, where consumer preference drives the use of plastic clamshell containers for retail sales – dumping the cost onto farmers, and ultimately, customers. This is a program that needs to be put on hold and reconsidered in its entirety.

Blown away by community support during Coy Cup Editor: As I stood on the bench waiting for the anthem to begin it allowed me a minute or two to look around the arena. What I saw was people everywhere. The stands were full and, even, all around the ends of the arena people were standing at the glass. I was truly amazed. It reminded me of my days playing for the Mustangs in the mid to late 80s in the old War Memorial. It was full on every game night. I know for me and the players

on Saturday night (March 15) it meant a lot to have all that support from our home fans. I would like to thank the people who supported us last week by coming and watching all the games. I would like to thank the many volunteers, Coy Cup executive, the Stampeders executive for all their hard work this season. Without it, it would not be possible to accomplish all we have as a team. The sponsors who all gave so much, thank you. To the wives of the players, a

special thanks for giving them up on weekends when they’ve worked all week. I would also like to give a special thanks to all the players for making the last three years so much fun. Your hard work has not gone unnoticed. Thank you. Also, thanks to Kelly Kohlen (Stampeders general manager) and Stewart Bell (Stampeders trainer). Cliff Philpot Head coach of the Williams Lake Stampeders Williams Lake

Opportunities available for future Editor: Much has been made of the lost potential of new Prosperity Mine, a lot of it imaginary. Yet there are greater and more long lasting opportunities in eco-tourism, and even the growing interest in cultural tourism holds great promise for those areas like the Nemiah Valley and the joint Caretaker Areas of Yunesit’in and Xeni Gwet’in. Such economic development opportunities require three things; a pristine natural environment, a committed and skilled work force, and adequate transportation links. It is because of the environmental requirement that we worked so hard to prevent the environmental disaster that New Prosperity represented. It is the third, transportation, that I would like to address here. A7

The calamity that the loss of a regular and adequate marine highway link to the Chilcotin, and many coastal communities as well, cannot be over-stated. This loss will have lasting impacts not only on many Chilcotin businesses, already struggling because of the impact of recession combined with destructive logging practices, but on the Cariboo communities that boosted the mine so relentlessly and fruitlessly. We urge local mayors and councils, MLAs and MPs, Chambers of Commerce and others to come together and argue vigorously for proper coastal ferry service so that long term economic developments can be facilitated. The governing Liberal party most of you support has the ability to do this. A long held dream of regular

passenger train service on the CN should also be promoted. Great changes are coming with the end of the mis-managed logging industry as we have known it. Leaders should be thinking beyond the next short term megaproject to sustainable alternatives like eco-system based forest opportunities and value added industries with a supportive service industry. This is being done by Tsilhqot’in leaders. If their economic revival, based on retention of healthy ecosystems, is brought about, all will benefit, including towns like Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. A rising tide, as it is said, lifts all boats. David Williams President Friends of the Nemaiah Valley

Cattle Fodder Liz Twan ma’s cosy-womb on a bad day is not a checkable option. Too bad, as weather can swing wilding over the course of a day. Yesterday newborn calves frolicked about the pasture in early morning sunshine. By noon, however,

they were sodden, shivering and in search of any available shelter as they were battered by a raging spring snowstorm. Such is life out on the rangeland; often wild and unpredictable, sometimes calm, though generally out of the control of mere humans. Cowboys roam pastures, aiding any situation where human intervention is helpful. The hours spent outdoors in the saddle afford those who ride invaluable, intimate close-ups of seldom viewed snippets of na-

ture at its very worst, and in its ultimate glory. Most are aware of the privilege of that marvel, memories inked indelibly in the mind. Amazingly though there are a select few individuals who can ride the same trails daily and see nothing, they remain startlingly oblivious to every nuance of nature (no age-emption). The forever-in-memory factor was well illustrated two weekends ago at the Kamloops Cowboy Festival in a set by singer-songwriter and working cowboy, Ryan Fritz (Saskatch-

ewan). Fritz, some 20-odd years ago, spent some time cowboying on three major B.C. outfits; Douglas Lake, Gang Ranch and Alkali Lake and his cumulative cowboy experiences are now immortalized in song. All of his material is self-written. One surprise on the weekend, was one of his newer tunes, a ballad about “Riding the Alkali.” Sometimes, home follows you down life’s highway.

MORE VIEWPOINTS Government fails New Prosperity proposal, not Taseko Russell Hallbauer Special to Tribune/Advisor I was a bit surprised by some of the content of Jim Shepard’s opinion piece regarding the recent federal decision to stop the New Prosperity project. He says we were the ones “that failed to deliver a plan that would guarantee the integrity of Fish Lake” and implies that we didn’t try hard enough. He is wrong. The failure was not ours. The failure rests instead with the Federal Review Panel whose duty it was to fairly assess the plan we put forward. They failed in their duty and the consequence of their failure resulted in the federal Minister of Environment making the wrong decision. It’s important to understand that an environmental assessment is a high level evaluation of a concept supported by evidence and proven practice. The plan we put forward to save Fish Lake was solid and fully adequate to meet the test of an environmental assessment. The real test of the technical and environmental integrity of a mine development plan such as New Prosperity, including the plan to save Fish Lake, comes after the environmental assessment. It is in this later step where detailed engineering plans covering every aspect of the development are prepared and examined. It is in this highly technical phase where the plan to save Fish Lake would have been absolutely proven beyond any doubt. What a shame the federal government would not allow the project to move to this further level of scrutiny. We get the point Mr. Shepard, the preservation of Fish Lake is paramount. That’s what this whole $6 mil-

Russell Hallbauer lion Review Panel exercise was all about and it is both frustrating and discouraging to have things turn out the way they have. We agree on some things though. We agree there really is no reason why this project should not be built. We agree the project is too important to the people of the Cariboo and critical to the future of the region to let things end here. And we agree that every effort should be made to make the project a reality. Was every effort made by Taseko to secure federal approval? You bet. Is there more that could be done now? Yes, possibly. However, we are not the only ones who

could commit to further effort. The invitation from the federal government to try again must be sincere. Will the Prime Minister truly keep an open mind and be willing to say “yes” if we address his concerns as Mr. Shepard suggests he should? We’ve been down this road once before having taken them up on an earlier invitation to “address the federal concerns.” We committed hundreds of millions of dollars to prove we could build the mine differently, address their concerns and save Fish Lake but as their decision showed, it got us nowhere. What will be different if we try yet again? Under the Constitution of Canada, these minerals are provincial responsibility; owned by the people of B.C. The Provincial Government approved the project and wants to see it built. They have the power and legal authority for mine permitting and play an important role in making sure Fish Lake is preserved.

leaders have a role in all of this as well. Will they be open to the possibility of a plan that respects their interests, saves Fish Lake and saves the project itself? If they remain inflexible and opposed to the idea, would it even be worth the effort for all of us to try again given the obvious weight governments place on their opinion? Human beings have proven themselves capable of engineering practically anything, from skyscrapers to space crafts. People by the millions will ride on the Sky Train even though there is no driver; they will trust their new car to parallel-park itself on the street; and they will sit comfortably on an airplane travelling at 500 miles an hour without once questioning the engineering in which they have placed their very lives. Yet, tell some people you can engineer and build a pond that won’t leak and it seems too much for them to comprehend. Not only will they disbelieve you,

they will go to extraordinary lengths to convince others, including politicians, not to believe you either. As a professional engineer, I know New Prosperity can be built and operated without any harmful impact on Fish Lake. In fact, modern mine engineering can guarantee it. It is not as simple as Mr. Shepard suggests for Taseko and its shareholders to commit once again to a further effort to win federal approval for New Prosperity. There are many factors to consider not the least of which is the commitment of others who figure so prominently in the ultimate decision.

NDP takes aim at Multi Material BC recycling ‘failure’ Jeff Nagel Black Press The NDP is accusing the provincial government of handing over control of B.C.’s blue box recycling system to Toronto-based multinational executives who will be unaccountable while B.C. businesses and households pay higher costs. Opposition small business critic Lana Popham raised the issue of Multi Material BC in the Legislature Monday, calling on the province to change course before the agency’s new system for recycling packaging and printed paper takes effect May 19. “If government doesn’t take a step back, B.C.’s recycling system is going to end up in a giant dumpster,” Popham said. “The control of recycling should never have been outsourced to the

large corporate interests based in Ontario and abroad. This is a profound failure. This program needs to be paused and the entire concept reconsidered.” Popham’s comments follow the launch earlier this month of a campaign against MMBC by a coalition of business groups, including the newspaper industry, who say they can’t afford to pay high fees imposed under the new system. “The Liberal government loves to claim they’re getting rid of red tape,” she said in an interview Monday. “So it’s quite ironic because MMBC is a Godzilla-sized red tape monster.” Although MMBC is registered as a society, Popham called it a “dummy corporation” because two of its three directors are Torontobased senior executives with Loblaws and Uni-

lever, while the third is MMBC managing director Allan Langdon. The Saanich South NDP MLA said the province should force MMBC to give B.C. stakeholders majority control. Popham said the MMBC system will be “dangerously close to monopoly” resulting in less competititon and innovation in recycling. She also said municipalities have been pressured into signing contracts with inadequate compensation for their costs, the threat of penalties for contamination and a gag clause. MMBC’s new recycling fees on businesses will be passed along to consumers through higher prices, Popham said, calling it a “hidden tax” that won’t be transparent to consumers. Meanwhile, she says cities are unlikely to rebate property taxes


TO: MEMBERS OF WILLIAMS LAKE INDIAN BAND TAKE NOTICE that a Ratification Vote will be held in accordance with the Williams Lake Indian Band Community Ratification Process on April 23, 30 and May 7, 2014 in order to determine if Registered Voters approve the Williams Lake Indian Band Land Code and the Individual Agreement. The following question will be asked of the Registered Voters of Williams Lake Indian Band by ballot: “Do you approve: • The Williams Lake Indian Band Land Code, dated for reference 4th day of February, 2014; and • The Individual Agreement between Williams Lake Band and Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada?

that households already pay for recycling. “The slogan for MMBC should probably be ‘Recycle once, but pay twice.’” In some cities where MMBC won’t provide services, such as Kamloops, residents will pay for nothing, Popham added. MMBC says it will take new types of containers and packaging not collected in B.C. before. But Popham noted glass will no longer be collected curbside in many cities and there’s little evidence the system will improve recycling rates overall. She said a smarter approach would have been to extend the beverage can depositrefund system to more containers, such as milk cartons and laundry detergent jugs. Liberal MLA Eric Foster (Vernon Monashee) responded in the

Legislature, saying the province made changes to exempt most businesses from MMBC fees and paperwork if they earn less than $1 million in revenue, generate less than one tonne per year of packaging, or operate as a single outlet. “We’ve got all kinds of validation on this — chambers of commerce, local government, opportunities for local government to either continue the way they’re doing it or to have MMBC put their contractors in there to pick up,” said Foster, who serves on the government’s environment and land use committee. “MMBC came forward as an opportunity to change people’s way of doing business and to put the onus on the original producers of the waste product or the recyclable product to reduce.”

Mount Polley keeps growing Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Mount Polley Mine north east of Williams Lake near the town of Likely is busy around the clock, with production taking place 24/7 and 300 employees working 12-hour shifts. In 2013 the mine produced 38.5 million pounds of copper, which was up 14 per cent from 2012’s production of 33.79 million pounds. “We produce 20,000 to 22,000 tons a day of copper ore concentrate,” said the company’s project mining engineer Luke Moger during a tour last week. The concentrate is trucked to Vancouver and sold, predominantly to markets in Asia. Presently the mine’s life spans to 2016, however, Imperial Metals is working on plans to extend its life to 2023. Aside from the daily operations of running the mine, crews have been busy working on the tailings storage facility during the winter months. “You are always exploring as you’re producing,” Moger explained while standing on one side of the tailings dam. “They didn’t know how big the mine was going to be when it first started so in order to keep the tailings storage facility here they had to add this dam and in the last few years added another dam on the other end.” Working with the existing topography, the dams are built up to ensure the tailings are contained, he added. There are a few different zones to each dam with five specific kinds of material — nonacid generating rock, also used for roads on site, two manufactured acid filters with different thicknesses and till, which forms a barrier,

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Williams Lake Tribune

and finally on the inside is sand. “Tailings basically come out looking like sand by the time it’s all ground down,” he explained. Instruments along the dam measure physical movement to monitor how the dam is displacing and others measure water pressure. Results are sent along to an independent engineering consultant in Vancouver to keep track of how the dam is working over time. “It gives everyone a bit of comfort that it’s been vetted by a third party,” Moger continued. Mining in 2013 focused on the Springer Phase 3 and the adjacent Cariboo pit. The majority of ore feed was sourced from Springer Phase 3, and the bulk of stripping activities was in the Cariboo pit. Over time the two pits, which are close in proximity, will be operating as one. The Wight Pit, which was exhausted, will be going into production this year as an underground mining operation. “It will be the first time we do any underground mining on site,” Moger explained. In 2009, Mount Polley began partnering with the University of British Columbia and Genome BC with a passive water treatment project aimed at tackling removing sulphate and selenium from water from the tailings dam using a combination of manure, hay and wood chips made of spruce, pine, balsam and fir. “It’s a super cool project,” Moger suggested. “Partnerships are the best way to go and I know scientists love having big playgrounds where they can do research.”

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo Ivan Squalian is among the many specialty carvers working at the Pioneer Log Homes, Sugar Cane site. The Timber Kings HGTV show featuring Pioneer Log Homes has been picked up for a second season, says a network spokesperson.

Spotlight shines on Timber Kings By Monica Lamb-Yorski By all accounts, the television series Timber Kings has been a real success. “We’ve been pretty much number one every night we’ve aired in Canada,” says Pioneer Log Homes general manager André Chevigny. One the best things about the show, Chevigny said, is the fact it has raised the profile of Williams Lake and the whole Cariboo. “Wherever I run into people, whether it’s Prince George even, they thank us for doing the show and tell us they can’t believe how much attention the area is getting.” People tell Pioneer they get calls from family living in other parts of the country asking if they know “those guys” or have seen the work sites. “The guys have been asked for photographs and autographs a number of times.” Ever since the show began airing In January, Chevigny said he has received telephone calls from

Spring 2014

all over Canada telling him how great Williams Lake looks on the show. “If you look at the pictures flashing across the screen, it shows how this is a stunning place to live,” Chevigny smiles. “The helicopter comes in, flies over the lake and above the trees near our building sites at Sugar Cane, or Soda Creek, it looks like a resort town and a place to come and holiday.” Chevigny’s hoping the show will help make a difference in the community, especially for youth, by shining a positive light on Williams Lake. Now that all 10 episodes have been shown, the network has started airing them again. The show does have a bit of a danger and a bit of redneck antics, which Chevigny says must be working because it’s had its success. It takes roughly four weeks or 125 hours of filming to make one episode, he explains. When asked for a favourite moment he replies, “holy smokes.” “I don’t think there’s been a favourite moment

because it’s been so much fun with all the guys. There’s been so much camaraderie and we’ve had a lot of laughs.” And the show has brought everyone closer together, he said. “Because we’re working more intuitively with each other and also I think it’s made us appreciate our families more because there has been a lot of personal sacrifice to make this happen.” Chevigny said many weekends and evenings were spent filming last summer after crews had gone home so there’s wasn’t the sound of chain saws interfering in the background. Chevigny says around 120 people work for Pioneer Log Homes in the region. Earlier this month, Pioneer Log Homes was named Business of the Year by the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce during its Business Excellence Awards Gala. HGTV representatives have also confirmed Timber Kings has been picked up for a second season.

Taseko renews commitment to Gibraltar success By Brian Battison Throughout 2013 Taseko’s 75 per cent owned and operated Gibraltar Mine, including all management and staff, has demonstrated perseverance to grow the company into a world-class operation. This success is evident through the major milestones reached at Gibraltar. Although the recent decision by the Government of Canada to stop New Prosperity from going ahead was a low point in the year, the company continues to persevere. Taseko remains committed to its employees, and the community in which it operates and remains proud to call the Cariboo home.

Operational highlights

With the completion of the $700-million, multiphase modernization and expansion program, Gibraltar’s production and revenue numbers achieved record results. Specifically, in 2013 Gibraltar completed the ramp up of concentrator #2, a standalone facility that moves Gibraltar from a single line 55,000 ton per day plant to a dual line 85,000 ton per day plant, with a corresponding increase in mine fleet to accommodate this additional capacity. The project was completed on time and on budget, with the first new copper concentrate produced in March 2013. Annual copper production at Gibraltar increased to 121.4 million pounds (100 per cent basis) in 2013, a 35-per

Grand opening

In September, the official launch of TasekoGibraltar was celebrated with more than 600 guests in attendance. The flagship event celebrated the completion of the Gibraltar Development Plan, over six years in the making, the growth as a company and the building of Taseko-Gibraltar into the largest private employer in the Cariboo, a healthy and safe working environment, and the collaboration and partnerships with local First Nations, specifically the Williams Lake Indian Band. In addition, the event celebrated Taseko’s commitment to the Cariboo with people who have

not only helped fulfill their promise but have themselves made their own commitment to the Cariboo.

Commitment continues

As Taseko moves into its 10th year of production at Gibraltar since the re-start in 2004, the company remains committed to the Cariboo as a vital contributor to local communities and the people living in the area. The biggest impact has been on jobs. The number of employees at Gibraltar has increased from 10 to almost 700 over the last decade, and the mine provides a total payroll of $62.7 million per annum, with 95 per cent of employees concentrated in Williams Lake, Quesnel and 100 Mile House. Gibraltar has become a cornerstone of the local economy. Gibraltar’s success has wider ramifications for other businesses in the

region as well. Gibraltar spent more than $124 million buying goods and services locally in 2013, which helps businesses thrive and supports a broader range of employment opportunities in the community. In addition, Taseko-Gibraltar signed a Participation and Co-operation

Taseko’s commitment to the Cariboo extends beyond Gibraltar, a couple hundred kilometres down the road, to the New Prosperity ore deposit. New Prosperity is the largest undeveloped gold and copper deposit in Canada, the 10th largest in the world. It represents billions of dollars in potential wealth and opportunity for British Columbia and for Canada. More importantly it represents a once in a generation opportunity for new jobs and economic growth for the people of the Cariboo. In February 2014, the Federal Minister of Envi-

ronment announced that the government cannot grant New Prosperity the authorizations to proceed. Taseko, along with many others in the Cariboo, were terribly disappointed by this decision. The company fundamentally disagrees with the decision. The panel process and findings were flawed — a mistake was made by NRCAN during the panel process. The panel relied on this mistake to arrive at flawed findings. As a result, the federal government’s decision is wrong because it was based on these flawed findings. Taseko has stated that this is not the end and has launched a judicial review asking the court to set aside the panel findings. The plan to save Fish Lake is solid. With this project you can have both — environmental protection and economic development. Brian Battison is Taseko’s vice-president of corporate affairs.

Nuxalk/Bella Coola collaboration works well By Caitlin Thompson Common interests have prevailed with the collaboration of the Nuxalk Forestry Ltd. Partnership and the Bella Coola Community Forest at the Clayton Falls dry land sort. The two companies have been operating independently for more than five years, but have recently come together to increase productivity and business opportunities. “We are two small companies facing the same challenges,” said Bella Coola Community Forest Manager Hans Granander. “But we also have the same goals: to create more local economic opportunities and employment from our forestry operations.” The Bella Coola Community Forest has been operational since 2007, when it was first issued a five-year probationary license to harvest up to 30,000 cubic metres per year from six areas around the Valley. Now operating under a 25-year renewable license, most

of their operation has been based in the Nusatsum and Saloompt areas. The company employs about 20 local people. Nuxalk Forestry Ltd. Partnership (NFLP) is one of many divisions of the Nuxalk Development Corporation, an independent for-profit company with interests in forestry, sawmilling, commercial fishing, and eco-tourism. The company has a 25-year renewable Community Forest License in South Bentinck Arm and has been logging there since 2009, with an allowable cut of 20,000 cubic metres per year. “Most of our activity has been conventional ground-based logging in South Bentinck’s Camp Two area, but we also did some heli-logging in the Ickna River in 2012,” said Randy Hart, CEO of the Nuxalk Development Corporation. “In the 2012/2013 fiscal year NFLP generated just over $3.4 million in gross revenue and employed 48 Nuxalk people during that time. This is a huge boost

Hart admits there are

some members within the Nuxalk community who oppose the logging, but he remains confident that the employment and economic activity generated is beneficial. “We have been employing about a quarter of our workers year-round while the remainder are

seasonally employed,” said Hart. “The operation is selective patch cutting and it’s very sustainable. Our intention is to harvest timber in a manner that respects the culture and traditions of the Nuxalkmc as well as protect the important values and features of the Great Bear Rainforest.” The two companies have come together at the dry land sort where they jointly process logs from both operations. While both companies use Vancouver-based company A&A Trading Ltd. to market their logs, there is desire on both sides to see the wood processed locally first. A&A Trading owns the dry land sort, but the BCCF manages the dayto-day operations, contracts the required equipment and deals with any issues that may arise. NFLP is now supplying the workers, including the log-buckers, log-scalers and log-bundlers as well as equipment and supplies. This has taken the processing capabilities of

the sort to a whole new level and both forestry companies are now hopeful that their new working relationship will enable them to attract even more business. “There are numerous advantages to this new relationship,” explained Hart. “For one, we need to be competitive within the industry, and this increased capability at the dry land sort is essential. Another is the community advantage. “The trim ends from the processed logs are now available to the community for building, carving wood or as firewood. Obviously this can’t occur when the wood is processed out-of-town.” Granander is confident that the collaboration is just the beginning of increased productivity for both companies. “Overall we are very pleased with how it’s coming together,” he said. “It’s a really good example of two entities working together with a common goal and enjoying a successful outcome.”

West Fraser Williams Lake: Outlook 2014 By Matt Ketcham, Guy Burdikin, RPF and Travis Nystoruk Over the last few years forestry companies have been active in salvaging mountain pine beetlekilled timber before the wood was too dead or rotten to be used to make lumber or plywood. What is less well known is West Fraser is also actively renewing forests in the wake of the beetle so that we can have healthy, sustainable and vibrant forests in the future. Our sawmill and plywood operations in Williams Lake are supported by a talented woods group responsible for regenerating new forests in the sites where forests were decimated by the mountain pine beetle. It is the silviculture foresters’ responsibility to regenerate a diverse and resilient forest after harvesting activities have taken place and it is no small task. In 2013 alone, West Fraser’s Williams Lake foresters oversaw the reforestation of more than four million trees on approximately 3,000 hectares. That is an area roughly equivalent to 6,000 soccer fields. Reforesting is planned even before a tree is harvested because foresters want to start a new forest as soon as possible to minimize the delay in getting a new forest growing. West Fraser’s Williams Lake division maintains a seed inventory of 20 million potential seedlings. Our seed inventory is partially supplied by gathering cones during harvesting so that the seedlings planted are already adapted to and represen-

Foresters have a few considerations they keep in mind to support the successful regeneration of a forest stand and we plant more than just pine trees. Density is a crucial consideration — both the number of seedlings and the combination of species that will provide an optimal forest in the future that is resistant to anticipated pests (like the beetle) and will be adaptable to potential future climate impacts. Reforestation starts with ‘mechanical site preparation” which includes scraping the ground, digging trenches and controlled burning to prepare the ground and facilitate seedling planting. Our regeneration strategy also incorporates natural regeneration and direct seeding that ‘injects’

seeds into the ground. Foresters will monitor reforested areas for several years to ensure these young trees are growing strong and healthy. All of this work is part of a commitment to developing a long term, sustainable wood products business that positively contributes to the economy of Williams Lake. Recently named Manufacturer of the Year by the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce, it has been a busy year for West Fraser’s sawmill and plywood plant. The most externally visible investment is the significant upgrades to the Williams Lake sawmill, including the rebuilding of the planer and an ongoing, comprehensive wood dust mitigation and control program. Rebuilding the planer is especially important so that the sawmill can push its

limits and gain the most value out of the wood that flows through the building. The addition of a state-ofthe-art automatic grading machine to scan and grade the quality of wood products being processed will also allow the mill to

improve on the range of products it can manufacture. West Fraser’s Williams Lake’s sawmill and plywood employees have undertaken a huge amount of work to continue to push forward on

their wood dust programs. Among other activities, the mills have strengthened housekeeping protocols, increased employee education, training and made infrastructure improvements that enable more efficient containment and capture of dust at the source where it is created. West Fraser is an active participant in the BC Forest Products Manufacturers Advisory Group that received B.C.’s highest safety honor — the BC Safety Authority’s Lieutenant Governor Safety Award for Excellence in Systems Safety. The group was recognized for outstanding collaborative work with regulators, compliance and insurers to develop a wood dust audit standard, risk reduction and employee training. West Fraser has committed to roll out the wood dust mitigation and control audit standard throughout our mills in 2014 and will be independently audited to this standard by the end of the year.

Barker Minerals confident in gold prices By Robert Kuhl It appears gold and silver markets have turned around and eventually the demand for bullion should be reflected in its price rather than being overpowered by the paper market. The actual demand, especially for gold from countries like China, India and Russia, to name a few, is unprecedented. Some of the stocks have recently had an increase in price and appear to be building a base.  Once the resistance levels of gold and silver prices have been successfully penetrated, we believe the upside potential for both bullion and precious metal stocks is staggering.  Perhaps the attention to the manipulation of interest rates (Libor) currencies (Forex) and the recent daily London Gold Fix and the massive printing of currencies world wide will shorten the time to the next up leg in the bullion markets.  Who knows how the

The widespread occurrence of footwall-type alteration and mineralization on surface and in drill core affirms the overturned nature of the local stratigraphy, evidenced by results from previous exploration programs and the 2013 drilling. The massive sulphide lenses discovered in the

Discovery Trench in 2001 and in trenching and drilling programs since then exist in a favourable stratigraphic contact horizon. VMS deposits in other mining districts commonly form at or along contact of sedimentary and volcanic rocks with similar alteration assemblages. Size and grade of the

mineralized zones are currently unknown and can only be defined by future drilling and trenching programs. The results to date at Frank Creek, located 77 km northeast of Williams Lake near Cariboo Lake, show strongly anomalous base and precious metal mineralization in welldefined stratigraphic horizons with the mineralization intersected enriched in copper, zinc, lead, silver and gold as well as a number of pathfinder elements that are characteristically elevated in and around Kuroko type deposits like Kidd Creek and Brunswick 12 deposits in

eastern Canada. Although the attendance at the resource shows is down somewhat, the enthusiasm amongst those attending is palpable. We continue to cultivate relationships with foreign companies and always make new contacts at these shows.  The successes of companies in our area, such as Barkerville Gold, will only contribute to increased attention to the Cariboo district as an excellent area for mining. Robert Kuhl is Barker Mineral’s vice-president of public and corporate communications.

Unusual tourism season shaping up By Geoff Moore 2014 is shaping up to be an interesting year for tourism in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region. There are extraordinary factors in play that have already affected forecasted visitor numbers to both British Columbia and the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association region. What remains to be realized is what the net effect will be. Only time will tell how the BC Ferries Route 40 cancellation will affect the popular “Coast Cariboo” or Discovery Coast circle route. The loonie dipping behind the U.S. dollar usually bodes well for B.C. and in particular the interior as U.S. travellers tend to be more motivated to head up the “Gold Rush Trail” and all the outdoor adventures that await visitors in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast`s “Land Without Limits.” We could fill a bathtub with statistics and facts on the business of tourism but thought it would be more informative and entertaining to take a more informal and engaging path. So let’s explore some of the basic elements of the industry that are pertinent to this area and teach you about some of the tools that may help you understand and hopefully be more successful in realizing potential growth in your business. Most people living here know this region offers year-round tourism product that is primarily outdoor adventure based with the vast ma-

What many of us don’t know is who travels here, what motivates the travellers to visit us, how long they stay in our area and how can we influence them to stay longer. Where do most of our visitors travel from? The most important tourism market for CCC is British Columbians travelling within the province. Arguably the next most important source of visitors is from the United States and Alberta. With regards to overseas visitors the UK, Germany and the Netherlands are the countries supplying the higher numbers of travellers

to the region. What are the prime reasons our guests visit here and what do they do while here? Visitors to destinations in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast participated in a far greater range of activities while on their trip than they were originally motivated by. While the majority of people arrived here to visit friends and relatives a major percentage of travellers also engaged in activities including sightseeing, nature and wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking and visiting historical sites. The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast is seen as a place to relax and unwind, “a good getaway,” being unique and different are also critical strengths for

heritage sites and family activities are latent strengths for the region The Internet (accessed on a computer) is the key pre-trip infor-

mation source, while visitor centres, Internet at accommodations and Internet on mobile devices is used for information during trips. Here in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast domestic travellers account for about 83 per cent of visitation and 74 per cent of related spending. International travellers account for about 17 per cent and 26 per cent, respectively. On average domestic visitors to the CCC stay approximently four nights and spending just under $100 per night during their stay. U.S. travel parties stay about three nights and spend roughly $160 per night during their trip and other international travel parties are here for just under a week and spend just over $100 per night.

Tolko makes investment for the future By Mark Stevens Tolko made the difficult decision to close the Creekside sawmill in 2012, but the decision became a turning point that enabled us to focus our attention on the modernization of our other two mills in Williams Lake. Today, both Lakeview and Soda Creek are undergoing transformations that will set the stage for improved operating efficiencies for years to come. Tolko’s commitment to safety and the environment is evident in the new equipment that’s being installed. Machine guarding is planned and installed in line with the latest evolution in safety standards.   At Soda Creek, a new dust collector is being installed to further improve the air quality at the planer.

Ranch insurance expanded By Gaeil Farrar This spring B.C. cattle producers will have the same opportunity for insurance guarantees that have been extended to Alberta producers since 2009. The new Western Livestock Price Insurance Program was announced earlier this year by agriculture minister Gerry Ritz and extends insurance to producers in B.C., Saskatchewan and Manitoba as a four-year pilot. “I think the cattle Price Insurance Program or (CPIP) is good thing,” says Cuyler Huffman, Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association. He says ranchers will be able to subscribe starting March 26.

“It is meant to protect producers in the event that future prices are adversely affected by any number of potential threats,” Huffman says. “The cattle market has been quite volatile in the past number of  years causing uncertainty and a lack of ability to plan for the future in our ranching businesses.  This program gives a little sense of security at least for the current year marketable calves or yearlings. He says the program, run by the AFSC, compiles data from nearly  all auction markets in western Canada and from there determines what the settlement price will be for that particular day. 

“As with all insurance we hope that the market is above settlement price, therefore prices are strong and a payout will not occur,” Huffman says. “The program basically puts a floor in the marketplace.” He says premiums are reasonable, costing about ($3 per hundred pounds of weight)  for maximum insurance all the way down to around ($0.50/ cwt).  That generally will cost around $15/calf insured and downward. The program is also available for feeder cattle, cattle weighing around 850 pounds, that generally go to pasture for the summer and are sold in early fall. The program is totally voluntary, Huffman says. 

significantly change the productive capacity of our mills, but will substantially improve our cost effectiveness, product quality and value, thus positioning us to be competitive within the lumber manufacturing industry for the long term. At Lakeview, we’re replacing or upgrading all the equipment at the back end of the sawmill includ-

ing the trimmer, optimizer, sorter and stacker. The sawmill has been shut down in March while the equipment is being installed and we expect a ramping up to full capacity in April. This is the most significant upgrade in decades and we’re looking forward to this exciting turn in our mill’s history. At Soda Creek, we’re installing a completely new trimmer, optimized lumber grader, sorter, stacker and packaging line in April.  A new building has been constructed to house the

sorter, stacker and packaging equipment. This project will require a two-week shutdown of the planer operation in late April.  These two projects will provide immediate improvement to our operations, but they’re not the only improvement initiatives.  Other projects in various stages ranging from conceptual design to engineering to pre-implementation work will proceed later this year and over the next two years. While the lumber industry has recently faced the most significant recession and related challenges to be seen in decades, we’re now investing to secure our future in Williams Lake.  Capital investment, together with the good work of our employees and the contributions of our Woodlands staff, logging contractors and truckers, is providing a solid base for the stability of our operations in Williams Lake.

Connect parenting workshops coming up Sheila Cohen Special to Tribune/Advisor Do you sometimes wonder and worry about your child’s behaviour? Do you ever worry about your relationship with our child? Do you feel like you just do not know what to do? The Connect Parent Group is a series of 10, one-hour, small-group, workshops delivered over 10 weeks in Williams Lake. Rather than focusing on behavioural management techniques, Connect focuses on enhancing the building blocks of attachment, improving the parents’ ability to reflect before acting, and adjust their feelings so they respond more constructively to conflict. Parents watch roleplays presented by two facilitators who open new choices for responding to their adolescent’s difficult behaviour. Parents learn, for example, that conflict is part of attachment and is particularly acute during times, such as the transition through adolescence. Parents learn to “step back” in emotionally charged situations, recognize and modify their own feelings, while considering the possible meanings behind their adolescent’s behaviour. Parents are also encouraged to reflect on their own experiences, when they were adolescents as well as their present circumstances. Helping parents feel more knowledgeable in these areas helps them understand their adolescent’s behaviours and needs. This allows parents to keep their emotions in check when dealing with difficult situations and use parenting strategies that clearly set limits and expectations but does it in a way that maintains relationships. Parents report feeling less stressed and more effective in parenting; they see fewer behaviour problems and better social functioning in their teen.

The program is sponsored by Family Solutions Program

away will last a lifetime. Take the time to make this a positive experience for you both and have a good summer. Welcome and thank you to Melanie and Troy Ablitt, new owners of Walkrite Shoes.

CRD to offer subsidized composter program The Cariboo Regional District will once again be offering a subsidized composter program this year. Sales will be advanced rather than first come first serve as feedback from last year’s program indi-

cated that there was not enough supply to meet the demand. Last year all 250 composters were sold within several hours. This year’s program will include Green Cone food waste digesters, in addition to

the Earth Machine composter that was sold last year. Green Cones accept all cooked and uncooked food waste including meat, fish, bones, dairy products, vegetables and fruit. Order forms are

available on the CRD’s website at cariboord. and must be submitted by March 31 to take advantage of the offer. Composting at home reduces green-

house gas production, reduces garbage transportation costs, reduces landfill leachate production, extends the life of landfills and utilizes the nutrients in food waste.

The tier two bantam Williams Lake Timberwolves marched away from the BC Hockey Provincial Championships with a bronze medal. The T-wolves defeated Mission, 4-2, in the bronze-medal game.

Bantam T-wolves win provincial bronze Greg Sabatino Staff Writer The tier two bantam Williams Lake Timberwolves are provincial bronze medalists. Despite playing with a short bench and dealing with injuries throughout the BC Hockey Championships, hosted in Mission from March 16-20, the T-wolves gained revenge on a Mission team that had beaten them earlier in the round robin. Williams Lake came out strong and built an early lead, before proceeding to shut down the highscoring Mission offence for the rest of the game, winning 4-2 and claiming the bronze medal. Head coach Brad Thomas said his players were ecstatic to win the medal, especially after losing to Mission, 7-2, in the round robin.

“I’ve had eight or so of these kids since peewee and they go to provincials every year but they’d never made it to a semifinal game,” Brad said. “We did, and it was the highest they ever could have placed, so they were motivated. It was a big thrill for them. When we played Mission first they beat us up pretty good, but the boys didn’t back down and kept going. When we came back and played them again we held our own and showed them we could compete and win. Can’t be happier for how the week went.” On Wednesday, March 19, the T-wolves found themselves in the semifinal taking on Penticton — the eventual tournament champion — with the winner advancing to Thursday’s final. Injuries, however, began to take its toll on the players who, after

gaining a 1-0 lead after one period, weren’t able to hold off Penticton. Williams Lake began the round robin portion of the tournament with a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Fort St. John on Sunday, March 16. William Paynton scored the game winner after getting sprung on a break, burying a goal on the Fort St. John netminder. Hayden Lyons, meanwhile, picked up the win between the pipes for the T-wolves. In game two the T-wolves cruised to a 9-2 victory over Vanderhoof. Cody Swan led the way with six points, while Dylan Derose secured the win in goal. Next, Williams Lake ran into Mission — one of the top-ranked teams in the province — losing 7-3. Mission came out strong and aggressive in front of a large hometown crowd, utilizing their

physicality to their advantage. On Tuesday, March 18, the Twolves skated to a 4-4 tie with Abbotsford to advance to the semifinal. “The coaches are all pretty proud of them,” he said. We were a lot smaller than some of the teams and we didn’t show any quit. A lot of heart out there.” Meanwhile, the tier two peewee Timberwolves and the tier two bantam female Timberwolves were also in action at their respective provincial championships during the week. After finishing the round robin with a perfect three wins and no losses, the peewee Timberwolves met Campbell River on March 19 in the tournament semifinal. See PEEWEE Page B3

Williams Lake soccer players Scott Cramer (left) and Justin Hansen (right) are in Europe for a soccer tour with Vancouver-based European Football School head coach Saibo Talic.

Two Williams Lake soccer players are in Europe for 10 days to play with the Vancouver-based European Football School. Scott Cramer and Justin Hansen — both players in the Williams Lake Youth Soccer Association and the Cariboo Youth Soccer League — were selected after EFS coach Saibo Talic liked what he saw during last summer’s EFS soccer camp in Williams Lake. The boys will now join Talic for tournaments and a series of games in Europe and the U.S. This spring Cramer and Hansen will travel to Germany, Austria, Croatia, Slovenia and Switzerland as part of two EFS teams. The duo will be playing with a com-

bined under-15/under-16 team, as well as an under-16/under-17 squad. In total, Hansen and Cramer will play 10 games in 13 days, with travel, against some very good op-

ponents, including division one and division two clubs. Brian Hansen, the boys’ CYSL coach, said it’s a phenomenal chance to play against some topnotch competition.

“This is a great opportunity for these players to gauge their own skills and knowledge of the game against players in countries where soccer is such a great passion,” he said.

Peewee boys fourth, bantam girls fifth at provincials Continued From Page B1 Peewee head coach Owen Thomas said despite losing 6-3, the effort his players gave was phenomenal. “They were just a very strong team, and our kids played very well,” Owen said. “They were up one after two periods. We got in a lot of penalty problems in the third period and they capitalized. “But how our kids played was awesome. The score was not in-

On March 17 Williams Lake edged Penticton, 5-3, before posting another 3-0 shutout against Greater Trail the following day. In the bronze-medal match the T-wolves fell





6-2 to Penticton to finish fourth in the championships.

High school, elementary grapplers combine at BC Open Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The Williams Lake Wrestling Club was back on the mat March 15 for the BC Open in Abbotsford, a high school and elementary combined tournament. “This one is brand new on the agenda this year,” said Sonia Conrod, head coach and president of the WLWC. “It was a high school club tournament with elementary added so this was great news as we brought three elementary athletes and one high school athlete down to compete.” Grade 6 Tyleen Scaiano, her brother and Grade 3 grappler, Kalob Scaiano, Grade 2 Klay Pare and Grade 10

Braden Conrod represented the black ‘n’ blue at the tourney. In the schoolgirl division Tyleen went undefeated, weighing in at 38 kilograms, to bring home the gold medal. Kalob, meanwhile, at 24 kilograms, secured the bronze medal after battling through his first double-knockout tournament. Klay, in the 23-kilogram division, also won a gold medal. “She may be our smallest wrestler but she has the heart of a lion,” Sonia said. “Small, but mighty.” Braden, at the Grade 10 level, moved up a weight class to 63 kilograms. “He wrestled very

well, winning three straight and then losing in the final to bring home the silver medal,” she said. Following the tournament from March 16-18 was a Provincial Spring Break Training Camp hosted at W.J. Mouat secondary in Abbotsford. “There were many clinicians there to help with the camp including former Olympians Lindsay Belile and Justin Abdou,” Sonia said. “Also, top coaches in Canada Dave Mackay and John Pineda were there to teach the athletes.” On day one the elementary grapplers got a chance to train with Belile, while her Simon Fraser University wrestlers hosted a mini camp

Nutrition Run to promote healthy eating April 6 The City of Williams Lake, in partnership with Interior Health, is inviting everyone in the community to come out next Sunday, April 6, for the 24th Annual Nutrition Fun Walk and Run. The free, five-kilometre event starts at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 11 a.m. Participants will then travel gently through residential neighbourhoods of the city. “The Nutrition Run is a great opportunity to load up your stroller or bicycles and bring your children along,” said Denise Skarra, recreation co-ordinator with the city. “Families and friends will enjoy the fresh air,

nutritious refreshments and prizes, too.” As March is Nutrition Month, the city is helping to promote healthy eating through the event. This year’s Nutrition Month theme is “Simply Cook and Enjoy” and focuses on helping families get back to the basics of preparing foods at home. “Food prepared at home tastes way better and saves money,” said Tatjana Lauzon, community dietician with Interior Health. “Nothing beats yummy, homemade food.” Here are some simple tips from the city and Interior Health to inspire you and your family to enjoy wholesome foods at home.

1.) A little planning goes a long way: Reduce stress with very busy schedules by sketching out some meals and lunches for the week. Run out of ideas? Simply ask your family for favourite requests and have fun taking turns. 2.) Don’t be afraid to ask for helping hands: More hands in the kitchen means more help with prep, set up and clean up. The kitchen is a great place for families to catch up and connect. 3.) Grow some of your own food: Grow your own food in a backyard, containers or community garden. Growing your own is satisfying and a great way to have fresh produce on hand.

4.) Be creative with leftovers: Food made for dinner can be enjoyed again the next day. Save time by cooking extra and freezing mini meals in small containers for quick, wholesome lunches to go.

Volunteer Lynnette Cobb wins BC Achievement Award Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Lynnette Cobb of Williams Lake is one of this year’s BC Community Achievement Award winners. Cobb, 67, has volunteered 48,600 hours in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association Crisis and Counselling Centre, Cariboo Chilcotin Branch. She has also volunteered more than 3,000 hours for RCMP Victim Services and was instrumental in the construction of Baker Manor, a supportive housing facility for people with disabilities. “It’s kind of embarrassing,” Cobb said of the award. “I do this stuff because I want to and I feel honoured that people open up.” Besides, “I’m a stubborn Swede,” she added.

As for Baker Manor, Cobb insisted there were lots of local people who helped get the building going so the city could have a place for people that was handicap-accessible. Cobb herself has been in a wheelchair for at least 15 years. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1982. She didn’t know she had been nominated until she learned she had won the award last week. When asked about the astounding number of hours she has volunteered, Cobb suggested she gets more out of the experience than she put into it. She has spent many hours going to court with victims and said it’s got to be scary for them, not knowing what to expect in the court room. “That’s all I do — court support.” In 1991, her father Sven Swan-

son passed away and afterwards Cobb felt lost. Her mother had died when she was nine years old so her father was her mom and her dad, she recalled. “I had this void after he died so I took this crisis and counselling course and in about four months they asked me to come in and see a client face to face and that started it,” she said of the nudge to start volunteering. Cobb has lived in Williams Lake since 1957 and her husband, Walt, has been here since 1955. “Williams Lake is a great place,” she said. “I’m a pioneer.” The Cobbs have two children and seven grandchildren. “I couldn’t do all this stuff I’ve done without my family. They support me and want to me to do this. When I come home dragging my butt, Walt lets me go to bed.”

Premier Christy Clark and Keith Mitchell, chair of the British Columbia Achievement Foundation, named the recipients of the B.C. Community Achievement Awards on Thursday. “As British Columbians, we are inspired by those in our communities who make a difference by their efforts,” Clark said. “Thank you to the 2014 recipients for their contributions; you make our province stronger with your commitment and generosity.” Mitchell said the award recognizes people who have made a significant contribution either as volunteers or in the course of their work. “We’re honoured to celebrate the contributions of these exceptional British Columbians.” Recipients will receive the awards in person on April 29 at a ceremony in Victoria.

The Scout Island Nature Centre’s annual fund raising banquet happens Friday, April 11, at St. Andrew’s United Church. The guest speaker will be “Marine Detective” Jackie Hildering, the highly acclaimed marine educator, cold water diver, underwater photographer and whale researcher living on Northern Vancouver Island. This presentation will be an adaptation of the science resource she developed for the Department of Fisheries and Ocean’s “Stream to Sea” program. The profit from the banquet will be used to provide educational programs in nature for children and families at Scout Island Nature Centre. In order to plan for catering tickets should be purchased at least one week in advance at The Open Book, Scout Island Nature House and from members of the Williams Lake Field Naturalists.

Film club screens Queen of Versailles Saturday Krista Liebe Special to Tribune/Advisor The American Dream, excess, these are some of the ingredients of our next documentary, The Queen of Versailles, showing this coming Saturday, March 29, at the Gibraltar Room. The screening is at 2 p.m., back doors open at 1:30 p.m. The documentary is about a billionaire family who plan to build the largest privately-owned home in America, a 90,000 square feet palace. They are one of the biggest players in the time-share business and their rags to riches stories reveal the innate virtues and flaws of the American Dream. Their future palace is only a golf ball hit away from the home of Tiger Woods. The Queen of Versailles is a morality tale, and it is a character study. The Queen, Mrs. Siegel, certainly demands our attention. A 40 something, with huge boobs, eight children (she does like excess in everything), she has no problems telling her story to the camera.

The documentary Queen of Versailles will be shown by the Williams Lake Film Club on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room. She and her husband had decided to hire a documentary film maker, Lauren Greenfield, to record their biggest achievement, the construction of their palace. It is quite mindboggling to listen to her explain all of the details. To watch her shop. To listen to the kids. To see their pets suffer and die. And then the real estate bubble burst. They will not be able to finish their palace. They will have to down-size, imagine that. Her husband

might have to trade her in for two 20-year olds. This film left me

quite stunned. It is called wickedly funny, deliciously witty, compelling, shal-

low and shrewd and tough, and fun. Sorry, I missed the soul. But then, maybe that is what is wrong with this ever expanding dream. Is there any soul? I was amazed how the Siegels went on with their story, kept the film maker in their lives when their lives fell apart. And in that intimacy, it is a great documentary. A very close look we never thought we could get. We are bringing you this film by request of some of our film club members, and I am glad they asked. Admission is $5 per person. If you bring your kids, I might be lenient, but they have to be under 14.

Up until now, your preschooler has been mostly concerned with his or her own needs.Usually around the third birthday, this “egocentric” view of the world begins to change. Typically, your child will be more interested in playing with friends, although friendships may be short-lived. Your child may be able to show empathy, take turns, and begin to understand the idea of sharing. As well, more and more preschoolers are able to follow rules and instructions and are interested in seeking approval from adults. It is important to set basic rules and stick to them consistently. Getting along with both children and adults so that your child may do well in a group environment is a very important part of helping your child get ready for school.

Tsi Del Del and Thompson Rivers University work together on Capturing the Dream Students from the community of Tsi Del Del celebrated the completion of Capturing the Dream, a U-Prep program administered by Thompson Rivers University on site in Redstone and funded by the Ministry of

Infrared saunas tend to be safer and more sanitary than traditional saunas Traditional saunas use moist heat an temperatures that can reach as high a 150 to 200 degrees F, while the infrared saunas use dry heat with an average temperature of 100 to 140 degrees F. These lower temperatures are much more tolerable and allow users to stay longer. Dry heat is also easier to breathe in that moist heat, especially for those with breathing difficulties. Last but not least, moist heat tends to be a great environment for bacterial growth which can potentially be inhaled by users, while dry heat essentially nullifies this potential risk.

Try some of these with your preschooler: 1. Most preschoolers look for approval. Give approval (with encouraging words and actions like smiling) for taking turns and waiting for a turn as a part of your child’s everyday routine. 2. Introduce your preschooler and friends to simple games that require taking turns, such as card games like Go Fish. 3. Give simple one or two-step instructions to follow and then praise your child for listening and completing the task. Be delighted and supportive when your child behaves well. 4. Model respect by saying things like “please” and “thank you” to your child. 5. Encourage your child to have regular responsibilities around the home. An activity such as choosing clothes independently allows your child to get used to routines and expectations as a part of the day. 6. See how others do it. Reading books about friends with your child is another way to introduce your child to socializing. 7. Provide lots of opportunities for your child to interact with friends. Set up play dates with friends on a regular basis. Encourage your child to say “Hello” to playmates when he or she sees them. 8. Keep play dates short – one to two hours, and small – one to two friends. Make available a variety of activities that children will enjoy. 9. Be available. Supervise your child. Don’t just leave the children to play by themselves and hope for the best. Be close by in case they can’t solve their own conflicts, stop playing together, or need a change of activity. 10. Take your preschooler to another child’s home. Provide the experience of playing away from your child’s own home and learning the rules of another family. Depending on your child’s comfort level, consider leaving your preschooler in the home of trusted friends without you, first for a short time and then for longer periods. 11. Invite your own friends over. Since young children pay close attention to what adults do and often imitate their behaviour, model for your child by inviting adults to visit in your home. Have a double play date with a friend who has children.

community March Merriment Dance a merry event for CDC Mary Anne Turner Special to Tribune/Advisor More than 30 square dancers joined the fun for the March Merriment Dance. Dancers came from the Williams Lake and 100 Mile House area for the dance held at the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre gymnasium March 1. The square dancers who attended were looking forward to fun, exercise and a welcome break from the unseasonably chilly weather. But, in addition to their dance shoes, they arrived carrying pies and extra money in their wallets.   First Nick Turner called some square dances, then Mary Anne Turner kept the dancers hopping by cueing some round dances. After two hours of lively dancing it was time for some pie and ice cream. Then Nick put on his auctioneer’s hat and the dancers were

encouraged to open their wallets for an auction of the remaining home-made pies. “They were happy to do so because the March Merriment Dance has become an annual opportunity for the dancers to support the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre in all the good work they do with the children of the area,” says Mary Anne.  “Some lively bidding ensued. Nick wasn’t able to get husbands bidding against wives this year but he did manage to get some dancers bidding against themselves!”  Club president, Marie Gibbons, thanked all the dancers for their generosity and reported that the pie auction, combined with donations from dancers who could not attend that night, totalled $950. “Quite an amazing feat for a small club to accomplish,” Mary Anne says. The following week,  the club presented the funds to CDC execu-

tive director Nancy Gale, who expressed her pleasure with the donation and talked about the CDC’s plans to build a Cariboo Autism Centre in Williams Lake. As spring approaches, the square dancers will be winding down their dance season which runs from October to April and looking forward to their big year-end celebration in May.  From May 23 to 25, the Stampede Whirlaways will be hosting a full weekend of square dancing at an event called the Let’s Get Nautical Jamboree.  It will be held at Mountview Elementary School and guests from around the province are expected to attend this event. “Spectators are always welcome,” Mary Anne says. For information about the Stampede Whirlaways Square Dance Club and how to join in on their fun, go to their website at

Bible Lands Tour planned Williams Lake and area residents are invited to participate in a Bible Lands Tour this fall. A tour of Israel is being planned for a group of 20 people from October 15 to 27 and interested members of the community are invited to participate, says Pastor Cameron Johnston, one of the group leaders. “Going to Israel was not a great priority for me,” Johnston says. “But when I got there and experienced the Sea of Galilee and Jerusalem, I began to realize the spiritual growth potential of a trip to Israel. Now I’m really excited to be working with my colleague Pastor Robert Rud in leading this tour. I know that every person on this trip will be forever transformed and will never be the same after going to Israel.” A free information

session about the tour will be held at the Williams Lake Library starting at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 31. “We will show a short video and a few slides from my recent trip and answer any questions,” Johnston says. The tour will leave Vancouver Oct. 15 and land in Tel-Aviv the next day. Major sites along the tour will include the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem. The group will follow in the footsteps of Jesus as they visit multiple sites, such as the Mount of Olives, Western Wall, Via Dolorosa, and the Garden Tomb. The tour schedule will also include visiting the mountain fortress of Masada, floating on the Dead Sea, a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, and seeing the caves at Qumran,

where the Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered in 1947. Time will also be scheduled for Biblebased devotionals at select sites, as well as for leisure activities. Commitments from those interested must be in as soon as possible to secure a place on the tour. The cost of the tour includes airfare, hotels, meals, tips, and admission fees to various museums and sites. Anyone from the community interested in joining the tour can call Pastor Cameron Johnston at 250-2671660 or e-mail him at: cameron@silverhills. ca. With only 20 spaces available, he asks responses as soon as possible.

Ford forges ahead on all fronts By Zack Spencer


Ford isn’t merely introducing an updated model. No, they went to town, developing an entirely new manufacturing process that will revolutionize the fullsize truck space.

Zack Spencer


have developed two new engines to compliment the existing 3.5L EcoBoost turbocharged V6 model and 5.0L normally aspirated V8 engine. The first is a new 3.5L V6 engine, replacing the outgoing 3.7L model base engine. With a lighter truck, a smaller engine can do the work. A smaller 2.7L turbocharged EcoBoost V6 is also going to be introduced with an auto start-stop function that switches off the engine when the truck is sitting still. Official fuel economy ratings have not been released but Ford executives tell me they hope to have best in class gasoline fuel economy. Other enhancements to the F-150 include a new stepladder that integrates into the tailgate. Ford was the first to have this feature but it has been improved for 2015. The rear tailgate also has a

The 2104 Ford F-150. The base 3.7L V6 is also carried over but now with 300hp. The big news is the introduction of a 2.3L turbocharged EcoBoost 4-cylinder with an estimated 300hp and 300 lb.ft. of torque. For years, the criticism has been the lack of independent rear suspension in the Mustang but this is no longer the case. A fully independent rear suspension will help get all the power down to the ground from all three engines plus provide improved handling. Ford is hoping with this new platform and available engines, this new model will provide as many thrills as any German sports model and for less money. Pricing has not been finalized but expect it to be in line with existing 2014 Mustang pricing. Ford is doing well here in Canada and with all-new products; it will have a good chance of staying number one.

Attention Boaters


The Vancouver International Auto Show gets underway next week. Today, the Driveway team looks at the offerings for 2014 from the Big Three domestic manufacturers in papr and online at Ford has been on a roll here in Canada; finishing out 2013 as the top selling brand for the fourth consecutive year. There are some very big products coming from Ford over the coming year that will make a big impact on its sales and image, and you will get a peek at some of them at the Vancouver International Auto Show. The first is the biggest introduction of any automaker this year, the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 fullsize pickup truck. The F-150 isn’t just the best selling truck in Canada for almost 50 years; it is the overall sales champ, selling more than any other nameplate. Period. Ford isn’t merely introducing an updated model. No, they went to town, developing a entirely new manufacturing process that will revolutionize the full-size truck space. The body of the next F-150 is built of an aluminum alloy material that Ford claims is 318kg lighter but stronger than the outgoing model. In addition, the frame is made of thinner, lighter and stronger high-tensile steel that combined with the body, produces the weight savings. This is an industry first, and a revolutionary approach to building trucks. In addition to a lighter body, the engineers

soft-open feature that prevents the tailgate from slamming down, plus a light switch near the back of the truck to eliminate the bed with new LED lights. The second vehicle that will have a big impact of Ford, but more of an image car, is the all-new 2015 Mustang. Interestingly, about 25 percent of all Mustangs are sold here in British Columbia, so this is a big deal for us. The 2015 Mustang is now going to be sold around the world and developed as part of the “One Ford” approach to making cars they can share in every market. This means the Mustang will be sold, for the first time, with right hand drive for countries like the UK, Australia and Japan. The stance of the new Mustang is lower, wider and more muscular, with the wheels pushed out to provide better stability. The fastback has a steeper rake and a bigger trapezoidal grille has enhanced the shark nose design. Initially the Mustang will be sold as a coupe and convertible with the base and GT trim, the higher performance models will come later. Inside is another clean-sheet design, featuring real aluminum switches and dials, with two large gauges behind the steering wheel. The interior looks more upscale than any Mustang before. Under the hood the GT trim continues with the 5.0L V8 with improved valves and cylinders helping to pump out over 420hp.

Chevy rolls into town with shiny new wheels By Alexandra Straub

The model year 2014 is already in full swing for Chevrolet as it rolls its products into the Vancouver International Auto Show. Many of the new and revamped products are already in dealerships so let’s take a look at what’s especially notable for this year.


Chevrolet has certainly listened to their customers and in the Impala; it has given drivers a vehicle that has flair, as well as potency.

Cruze Diesel

The popular selling compact from Chevrolet, the Cruz, now comes in an even more efficient setup: the Cruze Diesel. While the diesel model was launched last summer, it bears a 2014 designation. Under its hood is a 2.0L turbo-diesel that packs in 151 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft torque. Yes, it has that much torque and is most impressive. According to the Chevrolet, it has a 0-96 km/h (60 mph) performance of 8.6 seconds, “which is better than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI automatic and competitive with German diesel cars that dominate the North American market.” In addition to that, it receives an estimated fuel consumption of 4.2L/100km on the highway and 7.5L/100km in the city. While the Cruze diesel had already been available in Europe, the proven engine needed to be adapted to North American emissions ratings. It comes standard with

a six-speed automatic transmission and 376.6L trunk space. It has an MSRP of $24,945 plus $1,550 destination freight charge. Impala

Chevrolet’s flagship sedan is all new for the 2014 model year. Released in 2013, this five-passenger vehicle can certainly hold its own in a segment whose competitors are getting stronger and stronger. Among its redeeming new features, an all-new exterior design. I think it looks great. Having had the opportunity to take it for a test drive, Chevrolet has certainly listened to their customers and in the Impala; it has given drivers a vehicle that has flair, as well as potency. Its cabin/interior also received a major overhaul and the result is pleasing to the eyes and to the touch. The 2014 Impala is offered with three engine choices, including two four-cylinder

powertrains and a 3.6L V6. Output for the 3.6L V6 is rated at 305 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm). That is the highest horsepower output in the segment from a naturally-aspirated V6 engine. The Ecotec 2.5L is part of a new family of four-cylinder engines developed with increased efficiency and greater refinement. It is rated at 196 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque The Impala’s Ecotec 2.4L engine with eAssist provides electrical assist in certain conditions to help save fuel. It is rated at 182 horsepower. Malibu

The 2013 model year brought forth an all-new Malibu. That said, not much has changed for 2014, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t get a few enhancements. For example, there’s now a fuel-saving start-stop technology added to the standard model, rear knee room improved by 1.25 inches (31.7 mm) and chassis and suspension developments enhance drive experience. That’s on top off the overhauled Malibu, on the inside and out. Camaro Z/28

For those diehard track day fans who have been waiting for an even more performance inspired Camaro, the wait is over. Almost. For 2014, the Z/28 makes its debut. All 2014 Camaro models feature a revised exterior design that integrates

The 2014 Chevrolet Impala — Chevrolet’s flagship sedan. high-performance aerodynamics for more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds. However, the new Camaro Z/28 adds features like a full aerodynamics package that creates downforce at speed, which helps make it the most track-capable offering in Camaro’s history. Alongside its aerodynamic prowess, under its hood is a mechanical wonder. Its 7.0L, LS7 V8 hand-assembled engine was co-developed with Corvette Racing to make it as potent as possible. Its monster engine produces an estimated 500 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. With those figures on paper, don’t expect amazing fuel results! And just like it takes an experienced driver to put

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 guyy looke looked edd hhappy and thanked me immensely ely forr 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 uunderstand 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 the ld th 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, S I sold him the car, but how was I supposed seed to know it had

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.

One for all in the pickup truck revolution By Ian Harwood

Years ago, we would see a pickup truck at an Auto Show (a rare find) and think this would be perfect on the farm; it has a bench seat that would fit all three of us! My how things have changed, stepping into a pickup today is like stepping into a luxury home with even more technology. Trucks are now outselling cars, so manufacturers must keep looking for innovative designs to entice the consumer into selecting their vehicle over the competition. There are many trucks on the road today but let’s look at the three domestic brands, all of which will be represented at the Vancouver International Auto Show. Ram introduced the EcoDiesel V6 engine in its 2014 1500 model and the consumer frenzy was on. A ½ ton pickup with 420 lb ft of torque and 4182kg (9200lbs) max towing capabilities, great! Better fuel economy, where do I sign. Ford announces the 2015 F150 with an aluminum body and a completely new design, this had Ford customers holding off on their new purchase until this comes out, which I do not think was Ford’s intention. GM changes not only the design of their truck but much of their drivetrain. So much so, that it was named North American Truck of the year. Consumers are demanding these changes, they want better fuel economy but still are able to tow just as much. They want more comfort but still have a practical interior. They want comfortable suspension but still perform off-road if necessary. Manufacturers have to consider all this when designing a new truck. They set up focus groups all around the country asking how they can improve and what features consumers want in a truck. So what’s driving sales, what do pickups have over cars and why are they so popular? Versatility, you can transport large items, haul your favorite ‘toy’, take your family in comfort to the cabin, get out and play in the mud. I am not saying you can’t do this in a car but with a truck there are no limitations and that’s what intrigues people into this type of vehicle. You can do so much more with a truck, the possibilities are endless. The truck is just the beginning, the customization then begins. Research shows that on av-

erage a truck owner spends between $5,000 and $7,000 in aftermarket accessories within the first six months

of ownership. Truck owners want to personalize their vehicles for practical reasons and some artistic reasons,

but rest assured, if you can dream it there is somebody out there building it. Ten years ago, I would have

said things are slowing down and there might be a change coming, but it didn’t happen and things picked

up and it keeps picking up. I now think it will continue and in another ten years, we will see even more choices,

enabling us to take the time to enjoy life on and off road.

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?
