Family hears grim details of teen’s death Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Jennifer Smith

The family of a slain Armstrong teen sat quietly and showed unflinching reserve as they were faced Monday with the details surrounding her fatal meeting with Matthew Foerster. At the tail end of a lengthy interrogation process that was videotaped in April 2012 and played for the jury for much of the last week of the trial, the accused killer explained he followed Taylor Van Diest down the railroad tracks where her body was later found as she walked to her friend’s house. “I talked to her for, it seemed, a few minutes,” said Foerster, speaking very faintly in the video. “I pushed her down and I just told her to keep quiet and she wouldn’t listen and I freaked out and I took off. I WAS SCARED “I was scared when I WHEN I REALIZED realized what I’ve done. WHAT I’VE I shouldn’t have never DONE…I WISH I been there. I wish I could COULD CHANGE change it… turn back time. IT… “But I can’t. I felt realMatthew Foerster ly bad for her and her family and how everything worked out. If I could take it all back I would,” he said. With a bit of prodding from Sgt. Mark Davidson, Foerster admitted that he did more than just push the 18-year-old over that night. “What did you hit her with Matt?” asked Davidson. “A flashlight,” said Foerster, noting later it was a Maglite. “How many times did you hit her?” Davidson followed. “I don’t know, I can’t remember,” said Foerster. “More than once?” Davidson asked. Foerster’s voice was often difficult to make out, but a low-level “yeah” can be heard at that point.

STAFF REPORTER

City council should stick to the new $20 open burning permit rates, even for farmers who operate multiple orchards, Kelowna Fire Chief Jeffrey Carlisle is recommending. On Friday, Assistant Fire Chief Lou Wilde met with B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association president Fred Steele on the issue, after Steele pointed out the new $20 fee attached to the permit can really add up for orchardists with multiple sites. As the majority of orchardists farm several sites simultaneously to turn a profit on the notoriously tight bottom line the industry struggles with, some are facing bills of several hundred dollars to dispose of orchard trimmings. “The $20 is partially to offset the cost of running this program,” said Carlisle, who noted anyone who buys a new lot or has run afoul of the fire department for burning items outside what the city’s bylaws allows must be inspected by a member of the department.

Alternate approval response signs off on new police building Opponents of the city’s plan to borrow $42.3 million to build a new police services building appear to be few and far between—or at least they were not willing to sign petitions saying so.

On Friday, Kelowna’s city clerk validated the results of the controversial “alternate approval process” used by city hall to gain public approval to borrow the money. According to the clerk’s of-

fice, just 198 people registered their opposition to the borrowing. That translates to 0.2 per cent of electors. In order to force council to consider holding a vote or re-

consider the entire plan, at least 10 per cent of voters (9,484 residents) had to register their opposition within the 30-day period that ended March 28. Kelowna city council received a certificate of sufficien-

cy for the AAP at Monday’s council meeting. The alternative approval process, which bypasses a public vote in favour of putting the onus on opponents when it comes to large-scale city bor-

rowing, is a similar form of “negative option billing” that is illegal among private businesses in B.C. The sufficiency reports are available online at kelowna.ca/ council.

Councillors fret over Glenmore car wash Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

A proposal to build a six-bay car wash in Glenmore got Kelowna city councillors in a lather. Discussing whether to send the proposal to a public hearing because the site, at 469 Glenmore Rd., is beside a residential development, councillors expressed their reservations at their Monday afternoon meeting. “I have some real concerns about this,” said Coun. Robert Hobson, who said because city staff are opposed to any sort of buffering structure to cut down on the noise from the car wash bays and the outdoor automobile vacuums on site, he expects residents will be opposed. Coun. Mohini Singh agreed, saying noise is also something she is concerned about. Coun. Luke Stack said the proposal shows the difficulty with the transition between commercial and residential areas and predicted residents would see approving the car wash as “an assault on their neighbourhood.” Despite the opposition, Hobson, Singh, Stack along with Couns. Gail

Given, Maxine DeHart, Colin Basran and Gerry Zimmerman all voted to send the proposal to a public hearing. The site is across the street from an elementary school, beside a park and just to the north of a residential development. The houses are separated from the proposed car wash by a walking path between Glenmore Road and the park. City staff don’t want a high wall built to buffer the homes because it would block the view of the park for area residents. Hobson said a possible solution may be to build a small commercial building at the south end of the site, directly across from the homes instead of one of the car wash structures, which could serve as a buffer. That would reduce the planned number of car wash bay structures from two—one 2,663 sq-feet in size and one 1,406 sq-feet. The property is designated for commercial development in the Official Community Plan. City staff support the rezoning. Ryan Smith, with the city’s planning department, said the applicant is also looking for a variance to allow for one of the two buildings to be built closer to the edge of the property.

Results slow in dual murder Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Friends and family of a West Kelowna woman murdered alongside her boyfriend 13 months ago gathered Sunday and made a public plea for information about an investigation that’s seemingly run cold. Tiffany Goruk, 30, and Jeremy Snow, 33, were killed Feb. 18, 2013. Their bodies were found inside a Cadillac Escalade that crashed late that night into the side of the Terravita condo complex in West Kelowna, in a set of circumstances Mounties immediately labelled as a murder. It was a very conspicuous end that’s amounted to very little in terms of legal action. There have been no arrests nor updates about the investigation. However, Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark said the investigation is “ongoing, active and progressing.” “We are still canvassing for anyone with any information,” Clark said. “Regardless of how insignificant it may be, come forward to the police and Crime Stoppers.” Police may still be looking for tips, but there’s no shortage of speculation on what may have caused the couple to meet a violent end. Goruk, a mother of

two young boys, did not have a criminal record. She has been characterized on memorial sites as a loving friend. Snow, on the other hand, served a short time behind bars in the United States and his ties to the underworld are often highlighted in online forums and blogs. He was arrested in the U.S. on March 5, 2009, after flying a helicopter into northern Idaho with 150 pounds of marijuana aboard. He agreed to bring cocaine back into B.C. and, as he landed, undercover US agents arrested him.

the

KELOWNA PALETTE CLUB

He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 46 months in jail, after claiming he was pressured to do a single drug run. He was allowed to transfer to a B.C. jail on June 23, 2011. The two had been a couple for over a year. The RCMP continue to seek public assistance with this matter and are urging anyone with information to call the Southeast District Major Crimes Unit at 250-4697800 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

ense of entitlement is a phrase that was tossed around often in the public discourse last week surrounding the travel and other expenses passed on to taxpayers by three provincial MLAs. That all three involved— Jenny Kwan, Linda Reid and Raj Chouhan—were willing to reimburse for their various expenses, ranging from travel trips to South Africa and Disneyland to a muffin machine, when their spending ways became public is more than a little suspicious.

It indicates that while a sense of entitlement can get you into trouble, it’s not difficult to justify anything in your own mind. Politicians look at the corporate sector perks, often more imagined that real, and think they should be granted the same luxuries. The only difference is that taxpayers foot the bill for politicians. But while the badly thought out deeds of our three MLAs last week garnered widespread criticism and outrage, will we voters even give it a second

thought a month from now? Or just forget about it as another example of why we feel so apathetic about our political system today. Government funding is the trough that the bureaucrats and politicians too often neck-deep in, while the taxpayers continually get stiffed for higher taxes and user fees. Don’t expect the Liberals or NDP to change that anytime soon, because perceived entitlement has no political jurisdictions.

Just consider the example in Alberta of now former premier Alison Redford. When spending on the perks is out of control at the top of the government food chain, how is any message of restraint or respect for taxpayers ever going to be heard? Here in B.C., clearly more accountability needs to be introduced to public spending accounts of our politicians and bureaucrats, and not hidden away to prevent embarrassment from being caught abusing that sense of entitlement.

Mandated recycling policy not accountable to the public Kelvin McCulloch A few months back, I received a notification which advised me that I had to declare whether Buckerfields was a “producer” of printed paper or packaging material. If so, we would have to implement an “approved stewardship plan” to deal with the material. Otherwise we would have to join another “stewardship plan” and pay fees to that plan holder. I thought it was a scam. But I looked into it further and determined that there was indeed regulatory provisions in effect which stated this very thing and according to the regulations, Buckerfields is now a “producer” of

printed paper and packaging material, with the best example being our Buckerfields feed bags. I then discussed the alternatives with a Ministry of Environment official and came to realize that we had no choice but to join the only approved stewardship plan in the province, MMBC (Multi Material BC). We signed the MMBC contract. But we also read it. And it stated that MMBC had to file audited financial statements on its web site. I recently went to the web site and there are no audited financial statements. Now, several months later, I have discovered the following. • MMBC is a corporation under

the Societies Act comprised of three directors, two of whom live in Ontario. None of the directors have public sector credentials. All of the directors represent large corporate interests. • MMBC is not accountable to any government agency, appointed official, elected official or any other government body other than the Registrar of Companies under the Societies Act. • MMBC is not governed by the province’s Financial Administration Act which sets out the rules for the administration of all public monies. • None of the monies collected by MMBC, including the fees Buckerfields is supposed to pay go to the Public Accounts of the province or

any other government organization. • MMBC is not subject to oversight by the Auditor General of B.C. • Under MMBC’s “stewardship plan” as approved by the provincial government, MMBC has the authority to charge companies like Buckerfields unlimited fees based on whatever MMBC spends, regardless of what the actual costs are to recycle our feed bags and regardless of the fact that we already pay municipal taxes in all eight of our locations. • MMBC has the authority to come into any municipality in the province and offer financial incentives to the locally elected government to do what MMBC wants in the area of

waste collection and recycling; if the locally elected government refuses, MMBC has the authority to do what it wants anyway. • The municipal governments of the province do not know the background of MMBC and don’t yet realize the fees that MMBC is charging to Buckerfields and all the other companies amounts to double taxation • The municipal governments are going to have to give up that tax base they have for waste collection and recycling because the shift to “producers” paying directly for waste collection and recycling eliminates the

BC parks open for resource exploration To the editor: A law was just passed that gives oil, gas and mining companies the power to open up B.C.’s provincial parks for industrial activity. Resource companies will now be able to drill exploratory wells, build roads and dig giant test pits, all in the name of pipeline and transmission line “research.” Unless we act now to repeal this law, some of the most beautiful parks in Canada could be opened up to industrial development. This could set a dangerous national precedent as oil, gas and mining companies scramble to extract as many fossil fuel resources as possible from deep below the soil. But if we add our voices to the thousands of letters that the BC Ministry of Environment has already received, they will be forced to respond. Take action now to keep ‘big oil’ out of our parks. Our provincial parks are legally held in trust for the inspiration, use and enjoy-

ment of the public. But now, some of our most pristine and beloved landscapes in the country are in real danger. Leaked documents show that the BC government is already considering redrawing the boundaries of 30 parks to accommodate destructive new gas and oil pipelines. And now the new Parks Amendment Act could open up these beautiful landscapes for industrial activity—including exploratory wells 75 metres deep and sample pits 250 metres deep. Many park advocates worry that it will also pave the way for large-scale oil and gas extraction. This is another attempt by the extractive industry to expand its influence over our public institutions. Last year, ‘big oil’ companies were invited to re-write our environmental laws.

Young Kelownians want out of their cars To the editor: As a vendor and customer of the Farmers’ Market, I support moving the market to the North End of Kelowna. Those who oppose the move because they think

the highway draws customers are out of touch with today’s emerging customer base. I don’t stop at places because I happen to notice them. I use online apps, as do most tourists.

The highway along Orchard Park could belong anywhere—it’s neither interesting nor inspiring. People don’t go to farmers’ markets because of where they are, they go

because of what they are: Unique spaces reflective of local culture. Culture doesn’t happen along highways or in parking lots—culture grows with community, in interactive social spaces like Urban

Double taxation in mandated recycling SNAFU Recycling from A6 need and justification for “consumers” i.e. property tax payers, to pay for these services through the municipalities. • The provincial government did not consult with the municipal governments or the public but companies like Buckerfields are pointing it out because, until it is resolved, we are being taxed twice for the same service and residential taxpayers (including me) are being taxed for something that someone else is actually paying for. • Taxpayers and municipal governments were not consulted as to whether they really want to shift the financing and control of municipal waste and recycling services out of the municipal jurisdiction, that is , the jurisdiction of democratically elected municipal officials into the hands of a corporation under the Societies Act that is accountable to no one and is outside the jurisdiction of the provincial Auditor General • Taxpayers and voters are unaware that the fees

being charged by MMBC are so onerous that they will cause newspaper closures and job losses of 300-500 in the newspaper industry in British Columbia, even though recycled newsprint is actually very valuable. In finding all this out, I lament the fact that none of this was introduced into the Legislature for proper debate because it means that instead of spending my days managing the sale of chicks and garden supplies at Buckerfields, I have to spend my time trying to revive democratic processes in British Columbia, retroactively. I find it appalling. My position as of the time of this writing, is this: We ain’t paying a dime to MMBC and neither should anyone else, not until: • The provincial government reconciles what it is doing with the municipal governments and municipal taxpayers so that taxpayers don’t have to pay twice • The provincial government takes back the legislation which calls us “producers” and “blames

us” for the choices made by manufacturers and indeed consumers that are completely outside of our control • Any monies charged under the auspices of the Recyling Regulation are included in the public accounts of the province and subject to the provisions of the Financial Administration Act and the Auditor General Act • Whatever is going to be done is introduced into the Legislative Assembly in the form of a bill so that the proper public debate can occur • Insofar as MMBC has not filed its audited financial statements since inception, and the period of time not reported spans more than two years, and insofar as MMBC is actually a taxing and funding agency, there be an independent public enquiry into the financial operations, sources and uses of funds, contractual procedures and expenditures of MMBC. No, Buckerfields is not paying a dime until this cash and power grab is unravelled and revealed for what it is.

One final word: 96 per cent of all printed paper and packaging material is already being picked up or deposited into municipally financed facilities. Despite what MMBC is saying, at least 53 per cent of that is already being recycled and it is very likely that that number was seriously understated to give the government a reason for its MMBC cash and power grab. In reality, there is no basis for setting up a recycling dictatorship and charging punitive fees to

companies like Buckerfields at all. Recycling is a booming business with rapidly increasing prices of marketable commodities. Could that be why the board of MMBC is all big business and outside the jurisdiction of the Auditor General? We don’t have to change a thing to see recycling take off in B.C., in the hands of our elected municipal officials. We need to send the MMBC regime to the recycle bin. Kelvin McCulloch is the CEO of Buckerfields.

OPINION

Proposed bridge needs perfect drivers To the editor: The Okanagan Mission Residents’ Association (OMRA) is a major stakeholder in the design of the new Lakeshore Road Bridge (over Mis-

sion Creek,) and I have been engaged in this project as OMRA’s liaison for over three years. My main concern has been the city’s self-imposed site constraints of

the project, which has been recognized in two formal safety audits over the same period. The numbers tell the story about this limitation; namely the risk of rear end collisions at the signal lights at the Truswell Road intersection. The bridge deck will be raised 2.7 metres (nine feet) from its current level, which will create a 42-metre ramp from the bridge to the stop line at the intersection. The engineering drawings determine that the vertical curvature of the bridge provides a maximum line of sight of 71.2 metres. According to Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Guidelines, a vehicle travelling down a road grade of 6 per cent at 50 km/h requires a safe stopping distance (SSD) of 68.7 metres. The guidelines assume that the driver is alert and road conditions are safe. The above diagram (see Diagram A) illustrates the 6 per cent road grade on Lakeshore Road and the relationship between a vehicle (black) stopped within the SSD guidelines and the line of sight to the Truswell Road stop line.

“My $69 professional group hypnosis: a jump-start and a long-term solution.”

Diagram A

Diagram B However, with over 6,000 northbound crossings per day a more likely scenario would place at least one preceding vehicle (grey) at the stop line, which would reduce the available stopping distance for the second vehicle. Two safety audits have already acknowledged that this design element will increase the likelihood of rear-end collisions at this location. The bridge design is predicated on the necessity for vehicles to travel at or below the posted speed limit of 50 km/h. The second diagram above (see Diagram B) illustrates the SSD for a vehicle travelling 3 km/h over the limit. In recognition of the need to limit the danger of

excessive speeds through the corridor, the design team has incorporated the permanent placement of hazard lights at the south end of the bridge. Other elements include a roundabout at Lexington Drive and narrower traffic lanes. It’s important for you to know what you are getting, so please take advantage of an upcoming unique opportunity to discuss these and any other concerns with the design team. An open house will be held at St. Paul’s United Church at 3131 Lakeshore Road on Wednesday, April 2, from 4 to 7 pm. Len McFarlane, Okanagan Mission Residents’ Association Kelowna

generation is striving to redesign our lifestyle and this community. Since moving back, I’ve witnessed an exciting cultural shift. Many of my friends have moved back too, and we’re Farmers’ Market regulars. We live in urban areas, we walk and bike, we shop locally, and we will support a North End market. We might not be the demographic vendors like M. Houde (Market Vendors Not Split: Just Have Different Opinions on Move, March 28 Capital News) cater to, but we are the future of this city. It’s symbolic those who fear change are fixated on parking, because their limited vision is going nowhere. The North End is off the beaten path, but that’s what makes it cool. It’s not a cultural hub yet, but moving the Farmers’ Market there is the right step towards that vision.  Amanda Poon, Kelowna

NEWS ▼ COURT

Family questions interrogation approach of murder suspect Details from A1 Under further questioning, he said he levied the blows to Van Diest while she was on the ground. A forensic pathologist who last week gave evidence, said Van Diest died from blunt force trauma to the head, but noted she also showed signs of strangulation. In particular, there were ligature marks around her neck. With that information in mind, Sgt. Davidson asked Foerster what else he may have done to Van Diest. The accused killer then anted up that he choked her as well—both with his hands and a shoelace. “I just meant to keep her quiet,” he said. “I didn’t want it to happen like this.” Foerster also admitted he dumped the flashlight, his black jacket and the shoelace in a dumpster by a Vernon liquor store, noted that he walked away from the encounter with scratches to his neck. Getting the information appeared to be a tough slog for investigators who faced a mostly silent Foerster for hours

on end. And when Foerster did speak, he wasn’t immediately forthright. A couple of times he suggested that he was a good guy who had made some mistakes. He even told the police officer and his half-brother that he knew he had a problem, but “years in jail won’t help.” Foerster also pushed blame on Van Diest at another point, agreeing that the teen would still be alive had she chosen not to fight off his sexual advances. All involved, however, pressed on, continually asking for accountability. Eventually, they got what they were looking for. In the end, it was pleas from his family that had the most resonance. The first time that Foerster started to speak about the details of the killing was when Sgt. Davidson played a message from his younger sister. “We know he’s really scared right now and freaking out…but (he needs to admit what he’s done wrong, to our family and to himself,” said Stephanie Foerster. When asked if she had any other messages for her brother, she said: “I

Earth Hour is a BC Hydro supported global initiative encourages individuals to turn off unnecessary lights and electronics to demonstrate support for climate change reduction efforts.   Earth Hour savings by year (reduction in overall provincial electricity load) were 1.95 and 1.67 per cent the previous two years. Locally, the results were Lake Country 1.7 per cent, Peachland 1.3 per cent, West Kelowna 1.3 per cent and Vernon 1.7 per cent.

love him. I just love him very much.” His brother also told Foerster he loved him, but said that he had to clear his conscience. While their words often moved Foerster to tears, outside the courtroom on Friday Van Diest’s parents said they weren’t buying his apparent contrition. Her mother, Marie Van Diest, was bothered by the kid glove approach taken by police.  “It makes you really nauseous,” she said. “Most people think back to movies where they’re sitting in a cold,

barren room with hard chairs. “I wouldn’t mind to have one of those recliners to sit in at home. It was a soft and gentle approach.” The day earlier took a heavier toll on the family. Van Diest’s friend, Clay Valstar, 19, brought family back to the moment they realized the teen was found.  Valstar testified that he was meeting Van Diest and another friend for some trick-or-treating on Halloween night in 2011. The jury was made privy to some playful texts between Valstar and

Van Diest that night. Their expectation, he said, was that they’d meet at around 6 p.m. But, a regular flow of messages came to an abrupt end after Van Diest sent a message to a mutual friend, that she was being “crepped.” That prompted them to drive around looking for her, but after 90 minutes or so they called Van Diest’s house to say she was missing. Around

that time the police were called. Having learned that Van Diest’s phone had been found at the railroad tracks, they all went in that direction. Two of the group had gone ahead down the dark path where the tracks lay, and Valstar testified he heard them scream. When he caught up, he saw Van Diest face down on the ground, over a bit of a pit “grunting and

twitching,” he said. He grabbed her arm to see if she was OK, but there wasn’t much response. He noticed a fair amount of blood, as well. Van Diest later died of her injuries in Kelowna General Hospital. How the injuries were caused and Foerster’s ability to form intent are lingering questions that have yet to be addressed. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

How pet owners can react to their pet having a seizure W itnessing your pet while its having a seizure is a terrifying experience. Very often, I get emergency phone calls with frantic pet owners on the other side, extremely worried about what just happened with their pets and feel totally lost and helpless. Often people are not familiar with seizures so they are not even sure what they were seeing and what the heck happened to their pet. Getting familiar with the term seizures, their causes, mechanism and best management is always good for a pet owner. So if it does happen to your pet, you are more prepared to tackle it. Seizures are caused due to an abnormal electrical discharge in the brain. Seizure is characterized by a sudden, violent,

FURRY FRIENDS

Dr. Moshe Oz irregular movement of a limb or of the entire body, caused by involuntary contraction of muscles. Typically, the animal will stand still, drop on its side, stretch the neck to the back, roll its eyes, get very stiff and then paddle the legs as if it is running. Many pets are also drooling heavily or passing urine or stool while having a seizure. Usually the animal appears unconscious while having the seizure, however this is not always the case. Seizure can be partial or complete. The symptoms may vary between just muscle twitching of

the face to the involvement of the entire body as described above.   Classically the seizure event is divided into three parts. The first part is called Aura. During this part the animal is showing a change in behaviour. It is very hard to characterize this part because the different behaviours vary so much amongst the individual pets. However, the animal exhibits a change in its normal behaviour. This part can last anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours. Experienced pet owners that are familiar with their pet getting a seizure, often are able to detect the Aura stage and can predict that the pet is about to have a seizure. The actual seizure is called Ictal. In this part, the pet is experiencing the convulsions. This part usually lasts

seconds to a few minutes. The third part of a seizure attack is called Postictal and its the time immediately following the involuntary muscle movement. In this part the animal regains consciousness but still exhibits abnormal behaviour. The pets are often wobbly, seem confused, weak or even blind. This part can last between a few minutes to a few days after the seizure. Although seizure is directly attributed to abnormal neurologic conduction in the brain, the original cause is not necessarily found in the brain itself. Seizures can be secondary to other problems in the body. Because seizures are typically an event that only lasts a few seconds or minutes, most pets are presented to the vet by the time that they are back to their normal self. Hence, diagnosing the source of seizures is challenging. The diagnostic approach to seizures is by elimination. The vet first performs tests that can reveal metabolic diseases

or infections that can lead to seizures and if everything gets ruled out, then the conclusion of primary neurologic brain disease (epilepsy) can be reached for being the reason of the seizures. In general, the list of possible causes for seizures is very long. Among the list of possible causes, the most common ones are anatomical birth defect, intoxication after swallowing toxic substances (coins for an example), physical injury such as a hit by car or a fall or infectious such as canine distemper virus in dogs and feline infectious peritonitis in cats. Kidney or liver failure often involve the retention of toxic materials in the body. These materials are often toxic to the brain and can lead to seizures. Metabolic abnormalities such as diabetes and brain tumours are also possible causes. If no primary reason was found for the seizures, the conclusion reached is that the pet is suffering from a condition called epilepsy. The cause

&

of epilepsy is still unclear till these days, most common in dogs between one to five years of age and cats one to seven years of age. If your pet is experiencing a seizure and you don’t have any prescribed medication from your vet, do not give it anything. The only thing you should do, is making sure that the animal is placed where it can be safe from physical injury by the vigorous movements. Move it to an open area away from walls and preferably on a soft padded surface and contact your vet. The immediate medication to treat a seizure while the animal still has it is by using a muscle relaxant such as valium. The medication needs to be given in a way that allows immediate absorption to the blood. If injecting the medication to a vein is impossible, the medication can be given into the animal’s rectum, from where it gets absorbed readily to the circulation. Once the animal is conscious and able to

swallow, you can offer a little amount of honey or sugar melted in water, in case the seizure resulted from low blood sugar.   Animals that suffer from repeated episodes of seizures can benefit from being regularly treated by anti-seizure medications. There are a few different medications available and the choice of the right medication depends on the veterinarian preference and personal experience and the patient tolerance to the medication. Unfortunately, all the anti-seizure medications have potential hazardous side effects. The decision whether to put the animal on a daily medication is done by weighing the risk vs. benefit and obviously depends on the seizures frequency and severity. Managing seizures is not easy and often is a lifelong problem. However, overlooking seizures can lead to irreversible damage to the brain and possibly death. If your beloved furry friend is experiencing seizures, seek help from a veterinarian to fit the right management for both you and your pet.

JIM Belshaw, chair of Soles4Souls Canada, speaks at the charity’s kick off to its annual April shoe drive. kicks off, volunteers will sort shoes every Tuesday and Saturday at the charity’s Industrial Avenue warehouse. Within the next week or two, Belshaw hopes to have shoes being shipped to those in need across the province. “Many of the people we serve…are getting back into a life that’s productive, and access to good quality shoes and boots makes their journey so much easier,” said Randy Benson, executive director of Kelowna’s Gospel Mission, who was representing Shelter Net BC at last Friday’s shoe drive kick-off. “Often times we don’t think of that.”

Lenetta Parry, executive director of the Westside and Kelowna Community Food Banks, was representing Food Banks BC at the kick-off event. “Shoes are something that people take for granted and unfortunately we hear stories all the time of people who are in need,” said Parry. “For some a pair of work boots is the difference between being in the line-up at the food bank or being gainfully employed.” Belshaw said the goal is to raise 100,000 more shoes this year. If that goal is achieved, Soles4Souls Canada will have brought in 500,000 pairs of shoes in its first five years.

Another goal of the charity is to encourage businesses, schools and clubs across the province to complete in-house shoe drives throughout the year. He noted the biggest need is for donations of steel-toed boots. Friday’s kick-off event concluded with a cheque presentation from the Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise. The club donated $10,000 to the initiative and committed to donate the same amount every year, for the next five years. The Soles4Souls Canada shoe drive t akes place throughout the entire month of April.

Soles4Souls Canada has collected and distributed 400,000 pairs of shoes since its inception in 2010. Now the charitable organization is shifting its focus to help more British Columbians who are without shoes. “We always give back to the local social agencies first, before we send everything offshore. Up to now, it’s been five (to) eight per cent that we’ve given back to the community,” said Jim Belshaw, chairman of Soles4Souls Canada and owner of Roy’s Shoes in downtown Kelowna. “This year our goal is to give back to the community up to 40 or 50 per cent of everything we take in here in B.C.” To achieve that goal, Soles4Souls Canada has teamed up with Shelter Net BC and Food Banks BC. Shelter Net BC is a provincial group that provides support to B.C. organizations that serve the homeless; Food Banks BC is comprised of 94 food banks provincially that serve about 90,000 British Columbians. “We have sent out an invitation to all these… agencies and said, ‘We want to help,’” said Belshaw. “The response has been overwhelming.” As the April shoe drive

Okanagan College business students encouraged to stand up and step out Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

David Gouthro says many people know they should change something about their lives or their work but they don’t do it. In many cases, he says, it’s because of a lack of courage to change. Gouthro, who spoke at the 35th annual Okanagan Business Student’s Association banquet in Kelowna last week, urged his audience to have the courage required and during his keynote address, offered advice about how to get it. “You have to wake-up, look out, stand up and step out,” he told the students in the room and the local business leaders who joined them at the banquet. He said change is never easy, it’s often complicated and can be difficult. But it can also be worth it. “Change doesn’t have to be painful, but it’s rarely comfortable,” he said. He added, using floating in a

Small business vs. entrepreneurship: Is there a difference?

E

ADVERTORIAL

ntrepreneurship is a phenomena that has dominated public attention quite a bit over the past two decades. The glamour entrepreneurship has attracted is due to a number of reasons. This week, I will strive to present some differences that are often overlooked and thus contribute to the repeated misunderstanding and misinterpretation of entrepreneurism. First, the crisis of the large corporation which appeared to be governed by managers/bureaucrats and the contemporary discovery of the entrepreneurially-based small business. Decisive in shaping the view of entrepreneurship in the public imagination is that typically great and prominent entrepreneurs have characterized the absolutely huge restructuring process of the 1990s. People from all walks of life, from every nook and cranny of the corporate world and education community, acknowledge that entrepreneurship is, not the” sleeping giant” of economic progress, but the “tower of economic foundation-building” that can alter the socio-economic landscape of regions and countries. Especially important as well is that “real” entrepreneurs have been

• Amount of wealth creation— rather than simply generating an income stream that replaces traditional employment, a successful entrepreneurial venture creates substantial wealth • Speed of wealth creation—while a successful small business can generate considerable profit over a lifetime, entrepreneurial wealth creation often is rapid • Risk—the risk of an entrepreneurial venture must always be considered high, otherwise, with the incentive of sure profits many entrepreneurs would be pursuing the idea and the opportunity no longer would exist • Innovation and creativity—this element to me is the most critical difference, as entrepreneurship often involves much more of these ingredients than what any small business might or can exhibit. To go one step further, this sense of innovation and creativity gives the entrepreneurial venture the competitive advantage that results in the aspect of rapid wealth creation. The innovation then can be the product or service itself or the business processes utilized to deliver it to the market. In other words folks, a great litmus test for a difference between entre-

preneurship and small business is the capacity to create something new. Remember the “looking at the world the same as everyone else but thinking and behaving differently” phrase I have written about in past columns—entrepreneurs are change agents. They thrive on disequilibrium. They are meant to bring to our world, the socio-economic progress that truly benefits our existence. Oops…maybe I am sounding a little professorial and prophetic, but from my heart it truly is a miscue to lump entrepreneurs and small business into the same “job jar” and allow ourselves to believe that small business issues, for example, are one and the same as those of the entrepreneurial world. The time has come, once again, for us to celebrate, highlight and most of all champion the role of the entrepreneur in our regional and provincial landscape. The entrepreneur is not going anywhere. They are here to stay and committed to making our world more enjoyable, fruitful and progressive.

When you add it up, its a match made in accounting heaven—an organization that represents accountants in British Columbia and the highly successful business school at Okanagan College. The Chartered Professional Accountants of BC (CPA BC) is the Presenting Sponsor of the OBSA and the Platinum sponsor of the OBSA Annual Business Banquet. The CPA is considered integral in helping the students stage the annual gathering that brings Kelowna’s established business elite together with locally-trained business stars of the future. “The partnership with CPA BC has been key to the annual success and growth of our Annual Business Banquet and of the OBSA,” says Andrew Kemp, President of the Okanagan Business Students’ Association (OBSA). “As a not-for-profit association that starts each academic year basically from scratch, the funds provided by CPA BC enable the OBSA to help bridge the gap between student graduation and a career in business, and also to contribute positively to student life at Okanagan College. “ Kemp also went on to say that business students (especially accounting majors) make up a large percentage of the overall enrolment at Okanagan College, so an official partnership with CPA BC adds great value to a large number of current, and prospective students at the institution. From the accountants’ point of view, the connection with Okanagan College’s business school is one that they also hold in high regard. “For us, it’s a natural fit,” says Jas Randhawa, manager of recruitment and employment for CPABC. Describing his organization as “the next step” for business students because, as he puts it, every business needs an accountant, Randhawa said CPABC wants to become the preeminent business credential. He noted accounting is part of the graduate degree for a variety of business students graduating each year. And, as recent television advertising for the profession has strived to show, the old perception of accountants is changing. Long gone are the days when accountants were seen as grey and uninteresting people simply “kept the books.” In todays modern and ever-changing work place, accountants are playing a bigger role in a variety of important areas within a business, including strategic, tax and succession planning, marketing and

Business is about numbers and numbers are an accountants bread and butter. Recognizing its future members are the young men and women graduating from business schools across the country, including here in the Okanagan, CPABC values its relationship with Okanagan College, especially its role as presenting sponsor of the annual business banquet. CPABC is a relatively new organization, having come into existence last year combining the three groups that formerly represented chartered accountants, certified general accountants and certified management accountants. Bringing the three groups together under one umbrella

organization nationally, with each province having its own chapter, the profession now has a unified voice for setting accounting standards, said Randhawa. CPABC has 27,000 members across the province and accountants in B.C. were at the head of the change when it came to bringing the three previously separate groups in together, said Randhawa.

natural healing who said that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer. The simple truth is this—healthy food can significantly prolong your life. Superfoods are the latest trend in the food and health industries, referring to nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being and more nutritionally dense than the rest. Research from Stanford medicine is proving that some components of superfoods may play a role in decreasing the risk of developing cancer, including phytochemicals and antioxidants. Phytochemicals are found in plants that protect plants against bacteria, viruses and fungi. Eating large amounts of brightly coloured fruits and vegetables (yellow, orange, red, green, white, blue, purple), whole

grains/cereals, and beans containing phytochemicals may decrease the risk of developing certain cancers as well as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. The action of phytochemicals varies by colour and type of the food. They may act as antioxidants or nutrient protectors, or prevent carcinogens (cancer causing agents) from forming. Antioxidants are substances that inhibit the oxidation process and act as protective agents. They protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals, byproducts of the body’s normal chemical processes. Free radicals attack healthy cells, which changes their DNA, allowing tumours to grow. Antioxidants can include vitamin C which may protect against cancer of the oral cavity, stomach and esophagus. It may also reduce the risk of developing cancers of the rectum, pancreas, and cervix. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C may provide protection against

breast and lung cancer. Examples of some foods high in vitamin C are red and green peppers, oranges, papaya, strawberries and broccoli. Beta carotene, also known as provitamin A, may help decrease the risk of developing cancer. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, this nutrient may prevent certain cancers by enhancing the white blood cells in your immune system. White blood cells work to block cell-damaging free radicals. Examples of some foods high in beta carotene include carrots, squash, collard, spinach and sweet potatoes. Vitamin E is essential for our bodies to work properly. Vitamin E helps to build normal red blood cells, as well as working as an antioxidant. Research is finding evidence that vitamin E may protect against prostate and colorectal cancer. Examples of foods high in levels of vitamin E include sunflower oil, sunflower seeds, almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, bran

cereal, whole wheat bread and wheat germ. Other superfoods to consider are wheatgrass, kale, parsley, blueberries, avocado, maca, almonds, acai and gogi berries, coconut and coconut oil and raw cacao. Most of us don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, and when cooked they’re depleted of most vitamins and minerals. Juicing your vegetables is a perfect way to enjoy a variety of vegetables and consume the recommended daily serving. With a rise in digestive issues and the ability to absorb nutrients another benefit of drinking your superfoods is that the juice goes directly to your bloodstream. Juicing offers detoxifying benefits, improved energy, clearer skin, mental clarity and sense of well-being.

Rematch pits Rockets vs ‘Birds Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

MARISSA BAECKER/SHOOTTHEBREEZE

ROURKE Chartier (right) and the Kelowna Rockets face Jerret Smith and the Seattle Thunderbirds in the second round of the WHL playoffs beginning Thursday night.

Last spring, the Seattle Thunderbirds very nearly pulled off the upset of the Western Hockey League playoffs against the Kelowna Rockets. When all was said and done, the Rockets—coming off a 52-win regular season—scrapped their way back from a 3-0 series deficit to take down the ‘Birds in seven games in the opening round. A year later, the two teams will renew their postseason rivalry, this time in the Western Conference semifinal beginning Thursday night at Prospera Place. An older and more experienced group than last season, the Thunderbirds won 41 games in 2013-14, then disposed of the Everett Silvertips in five games in the opening round of the playoffs. “They’re similar in many ways in regards to their style, but their key players are a year older and I think they’ve made some good additions to

make them a better team,” Rockets’ head coach Ryan Huska said of the Thunderbirds. “At the beginning of the year, a lot of people considered (Seattle) a contender as the top team in the conference. They play in a very tough conference and won more than 40 games, so you know how good they are.” As much as surrendering a 3-0 lead in last year’s opening round to Kelowna was a disappointment, Thunderbirds head coach Steve Konowalchuk said it was an important part of the growth process for what was a relatively young team. “I think what the guys learned about in the big picture last year was the changing of the culture and the expectations that we have here now,” Konowalchuk said. “This year, the guys are coming off a series win and are feeling more confident about their game. But we also know how good Kelowna is, their style of play and what kinds of

challenges we’re going to face playing them.” On the whole the Thunderdbirds are bigger, more physical team than the Rockets’ first-round opponent, the Tri-City Americans. In that regard, Huska expects a considerably different style of series for his team in round two. “You’ll see that (Seattle) is more physical, they have a lot of big boys and they finish their checks,” he said. “We’ll have to finish off our checks, too, and do a good job of playing physical in our own right. We’ll need to remain patient and, if things don’t go our way, just stick to our game plan.” As for the Rockets, Konowalchuk said weaknesses are hard to find on the Canadian Hockey League’s No. 1 team. “They’re a very quick transition team led by a very strong defense,” said Konowalchuk. “They move the puck up the ice well, they have strong forechecking and can roll four lines…and of course

(Jordon Cooke) their goaltending is very good.” The T’Birds feature first-round draft pick Shea Theodore, a defenceman and first-round draft choice of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks, who led his team in scoring this season with 79 points. Unlike last year’s playoff meeting, Seattle will have veteran forward Branden Troock in the lineup. Troock, 20, who was injured last spring, had 24 goals in 58 games during the regular season and four more in the first round vs Everett. Meanwhile, as of Monday morning, the Rockets hadn’t yet disclosed the exact nature of the injury to forward Myles Bell. Huska said the 20-year-old Bell was in the process of being re-evaluated to determine the severity of a lower body injury. The Calgary native left Game 4 of the Tri-City series in the second period and didn’t return. See playoff schedule below.

Vernon Vipers move closer to BCHL cup Thursday. The Vipers host the Grizzlies Saturday at 7 p.m at Kal Tire Place. The winning goal Sunday was credited to Vernon defenceman Dylan Chanter, but it was Express goalie Gordy Defiel who inadvertently played the puck into his own net at 18:46 of the first period. First star Liam Coughlin had given Vernon a 1-0 lead with a powerplay marker at 11:46 of the opening frame. After a scoreless second period, the Express pulled to within a goal just 46 seconds into the third period when Bo Pieper beat Austin Smith with a backhand. Riley Guenther re-

stored Vernon’s two-goal lead at 6:22 with a shot from the right point past a screened Defiel. Michael McNicholas, Colton Sparrow and Dexter Dancs all scored in the final six-and-a-half minutes for the Vipers. Smith made 29 saves for his win of the playoffs, while Defiel made 24 saves. Both teams had 30 shots on goal. Vernon was 1-3 with the man advantage, the Express went 0-3. If needed, Vernon and Coquitlam would meet in the final game of the round-robin Monday, April 7, at the Poirier Sports Centre in Coquitlam.

a fourth place finish out of 15 schools at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic in Maui, Hawaii. Osland, 20, placed sixth overall out of 88 players at the NCAA Division 1 tournament, March 24 to 26 at the Bay Course in Kapalua. In her third season with the Spartans’ program, shot a final round three-under par 69, tying the low score of the day. After one-under par 71 on opening day, which included an eagle on the fifth hole, Osland was just one shot off the lead. On Day 2, windy conditions took their toll on Osland as she carded a 79. Still, she was one of only three players at the tournament to register two sub-par rounds over the three days. Osland said she loves the Kapalua course, which was the host of the 2008 LPGA Classic, because every hole  has its own challenges, not to mention the breathtaking scenery, including the par 4 fifth hole.   It was her finishing hole on the final day, which she birdied to end up with a final round 69. Megan is in her third year at  California State University in San Jose where she is majoring in Recreation Management.

More than 70 high school hoopsters played in four all-star basketball games at the UBC Okanagan gym on Saturday, highlighting the best talent in the Okanagan Valley.

Kelowna Curling’s Mellof ▼ FOOTBALL rink earns spot at provincials Sun schedule unveiled for 2014 The Kelowna Curling Club’s Dave Mellof rink has qualified for the B.C. Dominion Curling Club Challenge later this month in Richmond. Mellof with Neil Cursons (third), Keith Andersen (second) and Mark Thomsen (lead), won the

Okanagan regional playdown at the Merritt Curling Club last weekend. Team Mellof will represent the Kelowna Curling Club at the Dominion Curling Club Challenge provincials April 16 to 20. This provincial competition, part of the Pacif-

ic International Cup, will include a B.C. and international field of eight men’s teams each. The B.C. winner moves on to the Dominion Canadian National Club Challenge in Halifax, Nova Scotia in November of this year.

X CROSSWORD

As was the case during the 2012 season, the Okanagan Sun will battle the Langley Rams and Vancouver Island Raiders a combined six times during the upcoming B.C. Football Conference campaign. The conference recently released its 2014 schedule, which has the Sun opening up its 10-

game season on the road against the Valley Huskers on July 26. Based on their finishes last season, the Sun, Rams and Raiders are in the top tier of the conference and will play three games against each other in an unbalanced schedule.   The Sun will get its first chance against the defending BCFC champion

Vancouver Island Raiders on Aug. 9 at the Apple Bowl in the first half of a home-and-home set. The Sun will host five regular season games with two to those against the Rams and once each with the Raiders, the Westshore Rebels and Kamloops Broncos each. Okanagan will also play five road games, trav-

elling to Vancouver Island twice, Langley, Chilliwack and Kamloops. The Sun went 8-2 during the 2013 regular season, then lost to the Langley Rams in BCFC semifinal at the Apple Bowl. Below is the complete Sun schedule for the 2014 season, as Okanagan plays four of its first five games on the road.

KLO Middle School Attitude is everything!

KLO “Gets Happy”Harmony Day Project Over the past month, KLO Middle School students, together with their mentor teachers, created a lip dub that included the majority of our students. This was an ambitious project stemming from the Central Okanagan School District’s Harmony Day, February 5th. Timing for this project also fit well with Pink Shirt Day, KLO’s very own HACE Days, our year-long theme “You Get Back What you Give,” as well as School

District 23’s Education Week. The lip dub was first unveiled to the public at KLO’s lst Annual Show and Share Event March 12th. KLO’s goal was to put into motion SD 23’s “Attributes of a Learner” through a lip dub to Pharrell Williams’ Oscarnominated song “Happy”. The project, a grand undertaking, generated fabulous school spirit! KLO certainly is a happy place to learn! Special acknowledgements go to

project leaders, Mrs. Samaddar, Mr. Butterworth and Ms. Holmes (CAT), Mentorship Block teachers and students, as well as all participants of the KLO Learning Community. KLO especially thanks Larius Keininger and Kayleb Funk of the KSS Video Production Team, for their help filming and editing this project. Check out the KLO Gets Happy Video at this link – www. youtube.com/watch?v=778ckV S89tU&feature=youtu.be

Battle of the Books Once again, students are thankful for our PAC’s generously supporting literacy at KLO, by providing new novels for our school wide Battle of the Books. All students read Battle of the Books novels at the beginning of their English classes for a 10 week period. After in-class battles, a team of students was selected to compete in our Grade Level Battle of the Books Assemblies. SUN FM Announcers have acted as guest judges for almost a decade! Thank you to BMack, Ian & Lauren

and Kevin and Sonia for always helping to make this an amazing event! A big thank you also, to the CAT Leaders, Mrs. Samaddar and Mr. Perry for their help running the assemblies. This year’s winners are: Grade 7- Jenna Holland, Lindsey Mace, Leif Jack, Matthew Richardson Grade 8 -Jessica Groening, Maren Macdonald, Sam Morris-Probert, Jake Morris-Probert Grade 9- Adrian Aucoin, Chelsey Bridge, Benjamin Wood, Nathan Smawley

KLO Show and Share On March 12th KLO students and teachers were thrilled to host the first annual Student Show & Share. Highlights from the special evening event include a band performance, art displays, project presentations, digital storytelling and class videos. Home-economic students served appetizers and small music ensembles performed in the hallways. The KLO WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) student leaders surprised everyone with a flash mob and people were drawn to the library photo booth for personalized bookmarks! Students, parents, extended families, future middle school students, School Board Trustees, and members of the community came together, for a fun-filled evening in celebration of student learning and Education Week. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again next year!

About Show and Share

“It’s always exciting to see student talent showcased in our School District and the KLO Show and Share Night didn’t disappoint.” School Board Trustee Chris Gorman This is Education in Action!  The hugely successful Show and Share was not just a single concert or a sports game (as good as they are) where only one group of students or learning is highlighted, but rather an event where everyone had opportunity to shine and the community was able to see bits of the whole picture which is Education in the 21 century.” School Board Trustee Joyce Brinkerhoff

Forty-six West Kelowna residents have told their stories and shared their frustrations with health care services in West Kelowna since an initial call for submissions was put out last month. But the West Kelowna Residents Association knows there are many more people than that who want to see change. Last month, the WKRA asked residents to help identify gaps and problems with existing health care services on the Westside. The residents association has agreed to gather the feedback on behalf of Joanne Konnert, the consultant hired by the District of West Kelowna to prepare a report on the proposed Westside health facility. “I think Ms. Konnert is probably expecting a larger number,” said WKRA director Ron Green. “At the last public meeting we had on the subject, we had 245 people there.” Green said the responses so far have given

The West Kelowna teenager currently on trial for murder will finally tell her version of the events that left one of her peers dead, and turned a quiet Peachland street into a chaotic crime scene. The 18-year-old, whose name is under a publication ban, is alleged to have stabbed Ashlee Hyatt, 16, in her neck after an argument at a June 2, 2010, party. It’s a story that Crown counsel Murray Kaay assembled a number of witnesses to tell from varying angles, but defence lawyer Ingrid Friesen pointed out Friday that none of those viewpoints added up to a complete picture. “You as a jury will be the first to hear her side of the story—she wants very much to tell it,” Friesen told a B.C. Supreme Court jury Friday. “She’s been waiting two years to tell it.” The accused, who defence described as a “new girl trying to fit in at a new school,” has seen her point of view be absent in the last two weeks of trial, as even RCMP officers who dealt with the investigation failed to offer her perspective on what happened that night. What the jury has learned from teen witnesses who were there, however, is that the accused kissed a boy, while her boyfriend was nearby. This apparently upset Hyatt and the two started exchanging verbal barbs, which escalated to further pushing on the street, and eventually Hyatt was fatally wounded. Continuing on with the altercation, however, was the teenage host of the party. The defence has already suggested she was the one who brought the knife to the fight between the accused and Hyatt, and Friday two witnesses took the witness stand to highlight the teenage host’s behaviour in the aftermath and leading up to the fatal altercation. They also called upon George Young, who lives adjacent to the party house, to give testimony. Young testified he was brought into the fray when he heard a teenage boy in the street talking into his cellphone, saying, “It’s going down, it’s going down, it’s happening now.”

he day’s last light was fading and the first flakes of snow were falling outside the window, when a large black bear came ambling down the slope into the flower bed. There he began vigorously digging a hole, tossing plants aside as he went. A loud rap on the window sent him scurrying through the trees to the road, but the damage had been done in the garden. What if someone had come around the corner of the house and surprised that big animal? Others tell of watching as a large black bear ambled up their residential street, systematically exploring every driveway for garbage bins left out or other treats to eat, knocking over bins and laying down in the mess of trash in the road, while chewing on whatever was available.
