Forest tenure input needed Submitted A comprehensive public engagement process on converting some volume-based forest licences to new or expanded area-based tree farm licences will take place over the next two months, Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson announced today. “We’re only interested in pursuing conversions in areas where there is support - and we’re proposing that any requests for conversion to be considered on a case-by-case basis. I look forward to the public feedback on the process we’re contemplating,” said Thomson. People are invited to participate in a public discussion on the expansion of area-based forest management until noon May 30, 2014, at: This site has reference material, questions and answers, a discussion paper and an interactive blog where a conversation will occur online. “Given the pressures facing the timber supply in B.C.’s Interior and the impact on communities and forest licensees, it’s important to hear from as many stakeholders and members of the public as possible before considering changes that would increase areabased forest tenures,” said Consultation leader Jim Snetsinger.

Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson. To keep the engagement open and neutral, an independent facilitator has been hired. The public engagement process will be led by veteran professional forester Jim Snetsinger, who will compile the feedback and provide a report to government by the end of June. Snetsinger, a former provincial chief forester, will also travel to at least 10 different B.C. communities to meet with stakeholders, First Nations, local governments and members of the public who express interest in contributing to the discussion. The meetings will focus on the potential benefits that propo-

nents seeking conversions may be able to provide, the criteria for evaluating applications, and the process for implementing conversions. Conversions are not being considered on a provincewide basis. They are one “tool in the toolbox” that may help with mid-term timber supply issues in parts of the Interior that have been impacted by the mountain pine beetle. The results of the engagement process will inform how government proceeds and whether legislative changes will be needed as a result of the feedback.

Have you made your will? Submitted The Province has proclaimed Make-a-Will Week in recognition of the new Wills, Estates and Succession Act (WESA) that came into force March 31, 2014. The new law makes estate planning simpler and easier for the general public to understand. “This legislation is a further example of our commitment to modernize laws for all British Columbians. Make-a-Will Week is a reminder to citizens to put their last wishes in writing and the Wills,

Estates and Succession Act has made doing so easier than ever,” said Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Suzanne Anton. Throughout this week - March 31 through April 6, 2014 - the Province and various justice partners are raising awareness about the importance of creating or updating your will. If you want certainty that your final wishes will be carried out, a will can help. A valid will can allow you to: * Choose who will care for your minor children.

* Divide assets among people and organizations. * Ease the burden when your loved ones administer your estate. * Provide direction on funeral and burial preparations. The new legislation does not invalidate wills made before it came into effect. Some of the laws governing the interpretation of wills have changed, so individuals who already have a will may choose to have it reviewed by a lawyer to ensure their wishes are upheld.

Help show off the beauty of the East Kootenay by submitting your photos for publication in our annual visitors guide.

ALR divided, not conquered

Photo Black Press

Energy Minister Bill Bennett. B.C. Views by Tom Fletcher Kootenay Bill Bennett has done what I reported last November he was doing: seizing the horns of the sacred cow that is the Agricultural Land Reserve. Henceforth there shall be two land reserves. The Island, South Coast and Okanagan, which produce 85% of B.C.’s total farm revenue on 10% of protected land, retains its strict antidevelopment rules. In the much larger area Bennett likes to call “beyond Hope,” non-farm uses will be considered to help maintain the many economically marginal farmers. This is the Interior, Kootenay and North, where development pressure is mostly an urban myth. In remote areas, ALR diktats with no relation to reality are routinely ignored. Political critics were quick to call this a B.C. Liberal hidden agenda to pave the ALR for their developer pals. Certainly neither party’s 2013 platform talked about the ALR, although B.C. Liberal leadership candidates Kevin Falcon and Mike de Jong promised relief from its more senseless bureaucracy to 1510 - 2nd Street North, Cranbrook, BC, V1C 3L2 Telephone (250) 489-3455 Toll Free 1-800-665-2382 Classified E-Mail: Advertising E-Mail: Editorial E-Mail: Distribution Email: Open Mon. to Fri. 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

Peace country farmers in 2011. When the zone plan was revealed last week, media went to ALR pioneer Harold Steves, the hero of all Lower Mainlanders who try to tell northern farmers what to do. “My real fear is that they want to open the door for fracking and natural gas and oil,” Steves said. I’ve got bad news for the socialist sage of south Richmond. Oil and gas companies have operated on farmland since before the ALR was created in 1974. Conspiracy buffs should read the delegation agreement that took effect just weeks after last May’s election, giving the Oil and Gas Commission authority to administer wells, pipelines and waste pits on farmland. If the ALR interferes with the prescribed handling of drilling waste, it interferes with safety measures. University of the Fraser Valley “food security” professor Lenore Newman went on CKNW to refute what she called “uninformed arguments,” and then offered one of her own. This two-zone change is connected to the exclusion of large tracts of Peace land for the Site C dam, she said. Actually, the government exempted that project last December using the long-standing “provincial interest” provision, so this phase of the alleged capitalist plot against farmland has no effect on Site C. Steves is also concerned about second homes being built beyond Hope, and later sold rather than be-

ing destroyed as is the current disastrous rule. He warns that farmers might end up with “non-farm neighbours,” or as we like to call them up north, “neighbours.” Again, this is an urban problem projected onto rural B.C., where costly restrictions mainly serve to accelerate the depopulation of rural and remote areas. Delta South independent MLA Vicki Huntington is livid about the legislation, which has no effect on loss of farmland in her constituency. The growing federally regulated port supersedes provincial laws, and the Tsawwassen First Nation is growing a big shopping centre on its treaty land. Aboriginal entrepreneurs are also starting to force big-box development on southern Vancouver Island, home of the purest of the pure left. This is where farmers can’t even protect themselves against deer. The most damning charge is that the six regional ALR panels now in place are open to corruption under new rules. Panel members have always been cabinet appointments, but currently they have to be from outside the region so they are less likely to hand out exemptions to their friends. That is certainly something to keep an eye on. So is the status of B.C. farms, where the average farmer age is 56 and rising, and half of farms have income less than $10,000 a year.

Letter: MMBC–cash and power grab? 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. 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 which 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

Karen Johnston PUBLisHEr

Brian Coombs Editor

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 BC 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 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 unraveled and revealed for what it is. One final word, 96% 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% 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 BC, in the hands of our elected municipal officials. We need to send the MMBC regime to the recycle bin. ~ Kelvin McCulloch CEO, Buckerfields

B.C. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond. By Tom Fletcher Black Press B.C. has signed on to the federal government’s program to match skills training with employers’ needs, after negotiations to maintain most of the existing programs to assist older and disadvantaged people. B.C. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond signed onto the Canada Job Grant program in Ottawa Monday, as provinces and territories agreed to a program that requires employers to put up a third of training costs. Once the program takes effect, the federal share will be up to $10,000 per trainee with another $5,000 from a sponsoring employer. Federal Employment Minister Kenney said the new program will

address the need for thousands of skilled workers to develop liquefied natural gas plants, pipelines and other projects in B.C. There is no general labour shortage in Canada, but the $900 million a year the federal government spends on post-secondary training needs to match up better with the available jobs, he said. “So we need to reengineer our education system,” Kenney said. “B.C. has taken the lead on this, to prepare young people for the jobs of the future, to educate them for the labour market.” The agreement means B.C. will use 40% of Ottawa’s $65 million annual skills training transfer for the new program. “We very much support the concept of em-

ployer-led and driven employment programs, and I think that’s actually where we ended up with the Canada Job Grant file,” Bond said. B.C. objected to the program initially, because it would have taken federal money away from existing training programs for disadvantaged groups. Kenney said the amended deal allows 90 per cent of B.C.’s training programs to carry on. One of those is a 2007 federal-provincial program for workers aged 55 to 64 in communities with fewer than 250,000 people that have high unemployment or closure of employers.

Horoscope for the Week: April 4, 2014 Contact Michael O’Connor for a Personal Reading • 888.352.2936 •

Tip of the Week: Aries is the sign of dawn, daybreak, the moment when the sun peaks above the horizon flooding the plane in view with light. Thus the theme of birth, as in the new day, is linked to Aries. It is tempting to confuse the notion of the Constellation of Aries for that of the actual phenomenal event of the Sun at the moment of daybreak. Yet, there remains this lingering confusion which assumes that the constellations precede and are the foundation of Astrology. Sunrise, culmination at noon, sunset and midnight, which also correspond to East, South, West and North are the true foundations. The division of the day and the year into 4 main quadrants, in turn, also corresponds to the 4 Elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Dividing each quadrant into 3 produces a simple measure of beginning, middle and end of each quarter of the day and of the year. Early, spring, mid-spring and late spring is a basic example and we can say the same of morning, or of each quarter of the day. We can say the same of each quarter of the year, which of course are represented by the seasons and are demarcated by the solstices and equinoxes. The ‘Constellations of the Zodiac’ are thus projections of this experiential and time and date ordered measure of the passage of time. They are not so much objective facts as they are metaphors. So, it is easy to understand then that the 12 Constellations of the Zodiac do not precede the foundations of Astrology; they are actually afterthoughts used for the backdrop that they ably represent for the sake of measuring the movements of the planets which, based on their angular and spatial inter-relationships from the perspective of our experiential reality here on Earth, are the main players in Astrology. P.S. The Sun and Moon are generally classified as ‘planets’but are specifically referred to as ‘luminaries’. Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20) Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22) New realizations are awakening you to perspectives previously Some shifting and shaking and sifting and sorting on hidden.

A simplified RFP form for small businesses Submitted

The Government of B.C. has officially launched its two-page, short-form request for proposals (SRFP) making it easier for small businesses to sell to government. The shorter form will be used for government opportunities valued at less than $250,000, where it makes sense. The change streamlines the request for proposals process, making it easier for small businesses to apply and compete for work. The SRFP is one of several measures announced in 2013 to increase small businesses participation in government procurement opportunities.

The scope, process and templates for the two-page form were developed through extensive consultations - 14 sessions with 273 vendors, ministry and broader public sector staff during fall 2013. Several ministries piloted the short form RFP in January and February with positive results. Benefits of the simplified two-page form: * Reduces the amount of time required to manage the request for proposals process overall. * Previously, the average length of a request for proposal was around 18 pages but could be upwards of 80 pages with submitted responses being much longer, sometimes up to a few

Submitted Interior Health would like to express its appreciation to longstanding Board Director Glenn Sutherland, who retired from the Board when his term expired on March 31. “Glenn has been a part of our Board for nine years, showing a tremendous commitment to health care for our region,” says Board Chair Norman Embree. “On behalf of the Board, I would like to acknowledge the dedication he brought to Interior Health throughout his tenure.” The Board of Directors functions as the governing body for Interior Health, providing oversight on the organization’s strategic direction to the Senior Executive Team, which is responsible for dayto-day operations. Board members are appointed by the Province of British Columbia. “Glenn brought a strong governance, business and rural perspective and passionate voice to the Board for almost a decade. I’d like to wish him well in his future pursuits,”

Kindergarten booster shots soon to be available Submitted Your child is enrolled and ready for kindergarten, but what about making sure that your child’s immune system is ready too? Kindergarten boosters are being offered to children between the ages of 4 and 6 at the Cranbrook Health Unit. Clinics are scheduled for April 7, 11 and 14 and appointments can be booked by calling 250-420-2207. When children reach kindergarten age, it’s time for two booster immunizations of diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and chickenpox. That’s because as children get older, the protection from infant immunizations can wear off. Vaccines trigger the immune system to be prepared to protect itself when exposed to certain bacteria and viruses that cause diseases such as pertussis (whooping cough) or polio. Recent outbreaks of pertussis and measles in BC have highlighted the importance of keeping disease rates low by keeping immunization rates high. The DTaPIPV vaccine protects against four diseases all in one shot. Diphtheria is a serious infection of the nose and throat and is spread through the air by sneezing, coughing or directly by skin-to –skin contact. Tetanus, also known as “lockjaw” is caused by a germ mostly found in soil that can enter the skin through a cut or scrape. Pertussis is a serious infection of the lungs and throat that is easily spread by coughing, sneezing or close face-to-face contact. Polio, although no longer in Canada, still occurs in other parts of the world and can reappear if immunization rates fall. The chickenpox vaccine is the best way to protect your child against the chickenpox illness and its complications such as pneumonia, encephalitis (swelling of the brain), and bacterial infections of the skin. Encephalitis can lead to convulsions, deafness or brain damage. For some people, the chickenpox virus can become active again later in life and cause a painful rash called shingles. Vaccines are safe. It

is much safer to get the vaccine than to get sick from the disease. Common reactions to the vaccine include soreness, redness and swelling where the shot was given. These reactions are mild and generally only last one to two days. The Kindergarten booster is easy to get. If you live outside the Cranbrook area, you can contact your local Public Health Centre for immunization information, to find out when Kindergarten booster clinics are being held in your area, or to book an appointment. Public Health Centres are listed under Health Authorities in the ‘Blue Pages’ of your local Telus telephone directory, or you can visit our website www. and follow the links under Health Services/Service

Listings/Public Health Centres. In addition, is

a great source for information on vaccinations and immunization.

Gregarious Gardener

10 Neat Things COTR introduces new technology program by Top Crop Garden, Farm & Pet

Spring Houseplants

1. Wakey, wakey! Spring is the time when we start to look for signs of life outdoors in yards and gardens, but our houseplants are also waking up from their winter slumber and kicking into high gear. We can give them a boost with a little bit of TLC. 2. Spring cleaning. Houseplants use their green leaves to absorb sunlight and produce food in a process called photosynthesis. Dirty leaves cannot photosynthesize, so it is important to get all the dust and possibly insects that have accumulated on your plants over the dry winter months off as soon as they are ready to come out of dormancy. 3. Take a shower. The easiest way to clean your houseplants with hard-surfaced, smooth leaves is to give them a nice, tepid shower. To be sure your plant does not get over-watered in the shower, place the pot in a plastic bag and tie it tightly - without causing injury - around the base of the plant. You may have to lay extra plastic between multiple stems. Put the plant in the shower, making sure the water is neither too warm nor too cold and let the water sprinkle the plant for a few minutes. 4. Gentle touch. Plants with hairy leaves need a bit of dusting with a feather duster or paintbrush before hitting the shower. For prickly cactus and hairy succulents, the shower method is not appropriate both so you don’t poke yourself and to protect the waxy or hairy coating that protects these plants and helps them to conserve moisture. Stick to dusting or carefully pick off larger dust particles with a pair of tweezers. Another option is to mist your cactus with a spray bottle filled with water and clean the areas that are dirty or dusty. 5. Minerals are not always a good thing. While plants need mineral nutrients in the soil to help them grow, minerals can build up on leaves and the soil surface and actually become harmful to your plants. You can wipe smooth leaves with a dry, clean rag or gently scrape with your thumb. Make sure to support each leaf with your free hand as you work. Mineral deposits on the soil surface and rim of the pot should be removed completely without damaging the plants’ roots. 6. Bring back the light. Once the plants are clean and shiny, they have to dry completely before being returned to their spot in the light as direct sunlight can burn wet leaves. Set them on towels or old newspapers to dry right in the shower stall. Before you place the plants back on the window sill, clean the glass so the plant gets optimal sunlight. 7. Outgrowing their home. If you have removed mineral build-up from the soil in your pots, adding a fresh layer of potting mix can revive your plants. Sometimes, however, there comes a time when your houseplant outgrows its pot and needs to be transplanted into a bigger one. If left in a pot that is too small, the plant’s roots may not be able to get water and nutrients they need to grow, look stunted and older leaves may yellow and drop. Repotting is best done in the spring when roots grow quickly, helping the plant recover from the shock of transplanting. 8. Finding a new home. Water the plant well a few days before repotting. The new pot for your houseplant should be about two inches larger in diameter than the old one. Get the plant out of its old home by inverting the pot and gently lifting the plant out, hanging onto the main stem. Loosening the sides with a wide knife can help. Put fresh potting soil in the bottom of the new pot, transfer the plant over and add potting mix so soil is at the same level as in the old pot. Water well and keep out of strong light for a few days to help the plant rest. 9. Getting to the root of it. Root trimming can be effective if you want to keep a plant at its existing size in the original pot and improve its health at the same time. Remove the plant from the pot and trim one to two inches of the outer roots with sharp pruners. When you are finished put the plant back in the pot with some new soil mix. Keep in mind, this method will not work for all plants. 10. Outdoor living. Once it has warmed up outdoors and there is no chance your houseplants could get too cold overnight, consider taking them outside. Start off in a semi-shaded spot to acclimatize them to the sunlight and after a week, move them around to find the perfect spot for the summer.

Submitted College of the Rockies is once again expanding their list of course offerings with a new Computer Support Technician (CST) certificate program. This innovative program combines online learning with hands-on experience in computer hardware, application support, operating systems and networks. The CST program is being offered in collaboration with four other post-secondary institutions: College of New Caledonia, Northern Lights College, Yukon College and Northwest Community College. Students are admitted to and receive their certificate from College of the Rockies but courses will be offered online by all five institutions. Information Technology Department Head Ildi Walkley says, “Businesses depend on computer systems for everything from their web presence to their record-keeping, email and office applications and they need professionals to help keep these systems functioning. This new program helps prepare graduates for industry certification exams and for entry level positions as computer support technicians.” Students enrolled in the CST program will complete 10 courses over two semesters starting in September 2014. In the second semester of the program, students can choose electives based on their preferred focus: web development, systems administration or database administration.

B-ball camp open for region Submitted

Rising basketball stars from the Kootenays will have an opportunity to play with the best players in the province this spring. Grand Forks Secondary (GFSS) is hosting a try-out camp for Under 15 girls (grade 9 and younger) on Saturday, April 5 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The cost to try-out is $55 per player plus $15 for a Basketball B.C. membership. Registration includes t-shirt, socks, insurance and a written evaluation. The camp will feature individual skill development as well as scrimmage games. “At the camp, coaches will select 10 players for the team plus a few alternates,” said head coach Craig Lindsay. “Those players will have practice sessions on two Saturdays (April 19 and May 3) at GFSS and then travel to compete at the provincial zone tournament in Langley on May long weekend (May 16-18).” Lindsay said playing on a regional team is

Players from throughout the Kootenays are eligible as long as they were born in 1999 or later. “The team will compete with seven other zones throughout the province at the Langley Events Centre,” said Lindsay, who coached the junior girls team at GFSS this past year, and has coached several regional teams in Victoria. “The competition is really good. You see all the best players from throughout B.C. trying to win the provincial title.” Lindsay said it’s always interesting and challenging to mix play-

ers from different teams into a regional select team. “It’s fun and challenging as players get a chance to play with girls from different parts of the Kootenay who you normally might see at one or two tournaments during the year,” he said. “Players who put the time in on their skills in the spring and summer have a definite advantage when it comes to the next school season.” From the provincial zone championship, 40 players will be chosen to attend the U15 provincial team selection camp Photo Arne Petryshen where the two provincial Carla Lowden and her staff at Cranbrook Curves were overwhelmed by the generosity of their members. teams are chosen.

Four local teams selected to attend a national leadership clinic Submitted

Four local teams have been awarded spots at the upcoming National Environmental Education Leadership Clinic that will take place at Nipika Mountain Resort from April 26-29. The competition for the 8 available team spots was highly contested, with 22 teams made up of 88 educators from across the country submitting applications. Jointly hosted by the Columbia Basin Environmental Education

Network (CBEEN) and the Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication (EECOM), this Leadership Clinic will provide teams with the opportunity to network, team-build, share resources, and take action on key goals they have set for themselves. Local teams include Rocky Mountain School District #6, Wildsight, Wild Voices for Kids and a newly formed group of early childhood educators looking at developing

a plan to provide more opportunities for environmental education in the early years. Lisa Lehr, who is the captain of that team said “Our team members are thrilled with the opportunity to attend this Leadership Clinic. The goal is to create a 10year plan of action to create awareness, encourage involvement and design inclusive environmental education activities in the Early Years community. We are looking forward to share knowledge, re-
