Union heads not united on Ajax mine By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The controversial Ajax mine proposal has created another division, this time between two local Steelworkers’ presidents. Marty Gibbons, president of United Steelworkers Local 1-417, told KTW his local executive recently voted unanimously in favour of the Ajax project and isn’t suspending judgment until an environmental assessment is complete. The comments come as a stark contrast to those of Richard Boyce, president of the United Steelworkers Local 7619 that represents Highland Valley Copper. Boyce spoke on Sunday, April 13, at an anti-Ajax meeting at Interior Savings Centre, saying, “Although I’m in favour of mining — not this mine.” Gibbons disagrees. “We believe everyone needs to work together to bring these muchneeded jobs, safely, to the community,” A TALE OF TWO Gibbons said.

KAMLOOPS AIRPORT STILL SOARING

By Tim Petruk

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Seventy-five years ago today, on April 17, 1939, student-pilot Cyril Jackson became the first person to land an aircraft at Kamloops Municipal Airport. He took off the next day. The brief stopover at what would become known five years later as Fulton Field marked the end of a process that, according to local aviation researcher Neil Burton, lasted almost a decade. In 1930, Kamloops was a growing community in need of an airport. “In March of that year, the city was attempting to acquire space on the Kamloops Indian Reserve,” Burton said. “They wanted to purchase 100 acres

from the Indian agent.” The city made a formal offer of $25 per acre, but changed its mind when a new site — the present-day airport location — was recommended in December 1930. Burton said the City of Kamloops attempted in 1931 to lease 80 acres of land from B.C. Fruitlands, the British company that used to own Brocklehurst, North Kamloops and Westsyde. The plans called for a 2,600-foot by 1,300-foot landing field and a runway seeded with the latest and greatest runway seed — alfalfa. The city would pay Fruitlands $8 per acre per year for an 80-acre site. That deal fell through but, in 1938, work began on the airport site. It was complete in eight months and

opened officially on Dec. 15, 1938 — but the first landing was still four months away. It didn’t take long for Kamloops to attract airline service, though, with Yukon Southern Air Transport adding a stop on its mail route in November 1939. In 1940, Burton said, the city applied for $50,000 to pave the airport’s 4,000foot runway and install circuitry and boundary lights. Five years after the first flight landed, in 1944, Kamloops Municipal Airport was dedicated “The Fulton Field,” Burton said, in honour of RAF Wing Commander John “Moose” Fulton, a Kamloops native and legendary pilot who was killed in action above Germany in 1942.

Bumpy rides will remain the norm for the next few weeks in Kamloops. The city is waiting for warmer weather before it takes on a temporary repair on Overlanders Bridge meant to tide drivers over until the span is fully resurfaced in 2015. Public-works crews are also running behind schedule on pothole maintenance, due to an extended streetsweeping program that is pulling them off their usual repair shifts. Acting streets manager Dennis Luison said Kamloops received a heavier-than-usual sanding this winter, which is taking longer to clean up. “Due to a lot of the freeze, thaw and freezing rain — we had big freezing rain and little freezing rain — and the cool temperatures, too, for a while there, that’s all we did was sand,� he said. Cleaning that up means fewer bodies available for pothole filling. Luison said it will be one to two weeks before road

maintenance is back to full strength. He said the city has a few more large potholes to deal with than usual this year. On the bridge, it will likely be another month before work begins. Luison said the city is waiting for the weather to warm up to 20 to 22 C daily before it puts down an asphalt skin around the expansion joints on the span. “We have to wait for the deck to stay warm and the concrete,� he said. “The concern is that if the asphalt temperature isn’t proper, then it won’t last. Because we want to get the whole year out of it.� In the meantime, engineers are assessing the bridge’s west sidewalk on Thursday nights and Saturdays for the next several weeks. A report to council earlier this year identified the sidewalk as a future safety concern and led the city to postpone its major resurfacing of Overlanders for a year. Luison said engineers are inspecting the corbels that hold up the sidewalk’s panels to determine how degraded they are and what repairs are needed. “What they need to do right now is get to the corbels, remove some of the concrete around it, have a look at the structural steel,� he said. The city plans to inspect at least three of the supports, but may strip concrete off as many as five if results are inconsistent.

Lake agrees to meet on Logan Lake doc dilemma By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Terry Lake agrees it seems strange two international doctors would be welcomed by other provinces to set up a practice — but not by B.C. The province’s health minister and MLA for Kamloops-North Thompson said he has asked his deputy minister to meet with the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons “to talk about some of these barriers we seem to be running into all the time about bringing international doctors here.” Lake said he’s willing to meet

OVER 150 DISPLAYS!

with Logan Lake’s council to talk about the situation the community has faced in recent weeks after its doctor, Uzair Sheik, left the community. Sheik is now working on the Coast, filling locum positions while he works on the requirements he must meet to return to his native South Africa. Tania Castillo and Jose Blanos, two doctors now working in Guatemala, want to move to the B.C. Interior to be near Castillo’s stepfather, who lives in Kamloops. Both passed the Medical Council of Canada evaluating examinations and both have had

positive feedback from almost every province in the country. A letter from Health Match B.C. suggested the couple apply to open a practice in a province that would recognize their experience, which includes most other provinces in the country. Logan Lake HEALTH Acting Mayor MINISTER TERRY LAKE Robin Smith told KTW she has been waiting “some time” for Lake to respond to her request to meet with her and councillors. Lake said he referred the

request to his staff, asking them to discuss programs available for Logan Lake to attract doctors. Among the issues Smith wants to talk about is why her community is not part of a provincial program offering a $100,000 incentive to doctors who will relocate to specific rural communities and stay for at least three years. Lake said he has asked the committee overseeing the program to consider adding the town. He said the group is meeting “in the near future.” Lake said the college sets its own regulations with which the government does not interfere. However, he expects a conver-

sation with the college “may spur some action.” Sheik said he knows some Logan Lake residents are upset to know he is working on the Coast, but added he is doing it there because the process to secure a job in South Africa is detailed and he needs to have flexibility in his schedule and be near an international airport to fly to his homeland for interviews. “This [locum work] is just a means to an end to get me home,” he said. Logan Lake has set up a website, loganlakedoctor.com, promoting the community to as a place for a doctor to consider.

Education as a commodity?

COMPUTERS FOR ONLY

Refurbished Dual Core Computers

Thompson Rivers University Faculty Association raises concerns with faculty/contract teaching ratio By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Faculty at Thompson Rivers University are concerned education at the Kamloops school is becoming a commodity to be provided, rather than subject matter to be taught. Jason Brown, president of the TRU Faculty Association (TRUFA), pointed to the university’s open-learning programs, which have what Brown called units of learning “that can be bought and sold,” provided without ongoing instruction. Rather, faculty members are available to assist students by phone or email. The university’s academic plan talks about developing “blended learning models across all programs and faculties.” The concern, Brown said, is face-to-face programs taught in classrooms on campus will be done away with and replaced by open-learning courses students work on alone fundamentally alone. An article posted on TRU’s Centre for Student Engagement and Learning Innovation website describes blended learning as the “transformation of learning environments in higher education settings for an increasingly electronic world.” That site also directs people to Curtin University, which uses something it calls a blackboard learning-management system to deliver “interactive content.” TRU uses the same system in its open-learning programming. Curtin’s site notes in 2013, the university had more than six-

million logins, with an average of 516.521 per month. Last November, for example, there were 45,000 users (staff and students) who accessed more than 3,500 “units from across all faculties.” TRUFA sees any move in this direction as affecting its members. “The more we can take the [learning] process and turn it into a commodity, the more power goes to administration and the result is fewer faculty,” Brown said. Staffing is an issue for TRUFA, Brown said, with concerns raised about faculty positions not being filled and sessionals — instructors hired for short terms — brought in. TRUFA has filed a grievance on the percentage of courses being taught by tenured or tenure-track faculty. That dispute centres on an interpretation of the collective agreement. TRU provost Uli Scheck has told the media 75 per cent of courses at the university are taught by faculty, while TRUFA asserts it is 66 per cent. The collective agreement requires a 70:30 ratio of courses

taught by faculty versus those working at TRU on a contract. Brown also took issue with statements by Pat Neufeld, interim dean of the faculty of human, social and educational development, who said the institution is having difficulty filling some of its vacant positions in that area. TRUFA has used the socialwork department to point to what it says is an ongoing issue of faculty leaving and not being replaced, pointing to seven tenured-staff vacancies that have not been filled. Neufeld told KTW it has been difficulty finding people to take the jobs, but later partially agreed with TRUFA’s statement that hiring recommendations by the committee charged with helping to fill the spots had been rejected by administration. “Yes, there was a recommendation from the appointments committee to hire an individual,“ she wrote in an email to KTW. “The granting or denying of an appointment rests with the president and the dean/provost did not recommend the individual to the president, and as per the collective agreement provided written reasons to the committee. The appointments process is intended to be confidential. This is to protect internal candidates as well as the process.” Brown said two candidates were recommended, but not hired. One candidate was internal, he said, while another was interested, but was in a job with a higher salary and the university was reluctant to offer more to hire the person.

Every Friday, the little ones get ready to leave their day cares and head to a post-secondary classroom. When they get there, they get to play — and students in the early-childhood education program at Sprott Shaw College get a real hands-on educational experience. Instructor Natalie Statham said the college has partnered with Children’s Circle Daycare, Sixth Avenue Montessori Childcare and Little Foot Preschool. She said the aspect of the program is unique and builds on the 10-week practicums the dozen students in each class do during their 10 months of study. “Our students plan and implement art, music/movement, science, social studies,

language and math activities with the children in a fun, hands-on approach,” Statham said. “Recently, our students participated in a fairytale event at the [Children’s Circle] day care and they accompany the educators on field trips in our community.” The interaction gives the students a chance to practice the theory they are learning and work on projects to engage the youngsters. When they graduate, Statham said, they invariably have a job waiting for them and a box full of activities already prepared during their studies. In fact, said college education director Bruce Wilbee, many of the students find jobs before they finish the course. The program also does fundraising for the Family Tree Family Centre on West Victoria Street, which runs a drop-in program for families looking for

peer-based social support, connections to services, healthy food and activities for children. Students help out at the centre on professional-development days for the school district, she said. Because the centre is the beneficiary of this year’s Boogie the Bridge event, Statham and the students formed a team to take part in it, as well as its Jeans Friday fundraisers. In addition to the courses, which have regular intakes year-round, the college provides free refresher opportunities for graduates who want to sit in on a few classes and just bring their knowledge up to current standards. “We need more ECEs in the field starting their own day cares or going to group centres or Strong Start [ministry of education-funded centres in some schools] or interactive play centres,” Statham said.

NDP’s Horgan on Ajax: ‘Science should decide’ By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The NDP’s leaderin-waiting has pledged a renewed focus on electoral areas that include Kamloops as the party works over the next three years to convince voters it deserves a shot at forming government. New Democrats are expected to crown John Horgan leader. While the nomination period is open until the end of the month, rival Mike Farnworth recently dropped out — leaving Horgan as the only member to file papers to succeed outgoing leader Adrian Dix. Horgan, MLA for Malahat-Juan de Fuca on Vancouver Island, is continuing a tour of the province — despite the fact it’s unlikely there will be a leadership contest

to replace Dix — and said he plans to become a “familiar face” in Kamloops, recognizing its bellwether status as the city where governments are made. He spoke with party members at Desert Gardens Community Centre on Tuesday, April 15. “Kamloops and Prince George together,” Horgan said. “If you look at the electoral map, you see the NDP won the Coast and Kootenays. There’s a huge chasm in between.” It was nearly a year ago that Dix made the now-infamous “Kinder surprise” in Kamloops, when he unilaterally decided the party would oppose the proposed twinning of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline based on its impact on

economy,” he said. But, Horgan added, the Kinder Morgan controversy and Kamloops’-own Ajax issue speaks to deep public distrust in environmental assessment, something the NDP pledged before the

election to revamp. In the past year, the public has not shown any more confidence in the pipeline project, he said, noting both mayors of Burnaby and Vancouver have publicly opposed it. “The public needs confidence government will manage these in the public interest, not exclusively in the interest of the applicant or the community,” Horgan said, noting that includes a local voice and strengthening environmental assessments so the public has confidence in the process. “Ultimately science should decide. Communities and First Nations need a role.

“That don’t have one at the present time. That’s why you see so much agitation over Ajax in Kamloops.” Horgan, first elected MLA in 2005, said he is meeting with members in the Tournament Capital and across B.C. as he works to rebuild the party and its public standing. He said the B.C. Liberal government is making the job easier with recent mismanagement that includes massive BC Hydro and BC Ferries rate hikes and the disclosure this week that ICBC overcharged thousands of motorists.

B.C. Liberals accused of weakening enviro laws By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Critics say the B.C. Liberal government is further weakening the province’s environmental laws by removing ski resorts and some natural-gas plants from review. The province has passed two ordersin-council removing the need for mountain resorts and smaller sweet natural-gas processing plants to go through the Environmental Assessment Office. “Residents of Kamloops already have concerns about the environmental-assessment process,” said New Democrat environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert, noting criticism of the Ajax project’s review. “Here the Liberals have decided to weaken

it further.” West Coast Environmental Law said the moves were done despite concerns about the impact of the two industries. It said the changes mean future major resort developments will not trigger review under the Environmental Assessment Office. “Environmental assessments are supposed to allow the public and regulators to better understand and avoid potential risks,” said Jessica Clogg executive director of the non-governmental organization. “Removing the requirement for an environmental review is not in the public interest.” The Environmental Assessment Office said the changes are being made because

the projects are already reviewed by other government agencies. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations has a masterplan review process for resorts. But, Chandra Herbert said, both gas plants and ski resorts may have devastating consequences for wildlife, including endangered mountain caribou. The controversial Jumbo ski resort in the Kootenay region would have escaped review, the New Democrat critic noted. “A provincial wildlife biologist in that process said there were huge risks to grizzly bears. “They could make it locally extinct and [the resort] has to do things to address it . . . “With this, anything could go.”

Parents of autistic kids don’t need junk-science lectures

K

TW PUBLISHED A story this week on a researcher at Simon Fraser University looking into environmental links to autism. The doctor readily admits the work he is doing with several other scientists on the specific topic — looking at pregnant mothers’ exposure to chlordane and a flame-retardant chemical — won’t lead to finding a direct cause of the intellectual disability, but will add to the body of knowledge being created. And, within hours of the story being posted online, someone sent me an email denouncing the research and accusing those doing the studies of being paid by chemical companies. It’s always amazing how people can read things in stories that aren’t there; nowhere does it mention the funding of the study but, should the email writer be reading this now, the research is being done through grants from the national Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, with support from the Centers for Disease Control. The writer continued his criticism in the way some crackpots do these days when commenting on autism — he condemned vaccinations, decried having poison injected into children and, for reasons that escape me, then referred to Africa, which, he said, never had autism until vaccinations were introduced there. Normally, I reply to email writers with, “Thank you for your feedback. Would you like this to run as a letter to the editor?” It avoids getting into a debate and

DALE BASS Street LEVEL gives the person the opportunity to share their viewpoint with the rest of KTW readers. This time, though, the writer got a blunt reply that went along these lines: The story didn’t say that and I wouldn’t write a story on the link between vaccinations and autism because there is absolutely nothing that shows one. One of the people who continues to spout this nonsense is Jenny McCarthy, who has on her resume model, comedic actress, TV host, author and mom. Her son is almost 14 now and was diagnosed with autism just before his third birthday. Among the things McCarthy has done to deal with this is the standard intensive applied-behavioural analysis therapy, gluten- and casein-free diets, a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, chelation therapy, aromatherapy, using electromagnetics, rubbing spoons on his body (at least according to a website about her) and giving him multivitamins, B-12 shots and myriad prescribed drugs. Although she has spent many of

her son’s years speaking about the link between vaccines and autism — something virtually every legitimate researcher has debunked — apparently McCarthy now says she’s not anti-vaccine, but is against children getting several shots at one time. My five children all got their vaccinations on schedule throughout their young years. One of them still came down with the mumps. Another one had red measles — and the wise old doctor who finally diagnosed it after several others failed insisted on having the young doctors in his clinic look at it. One of them developed autism. It’s Autism Awareness Month and it’s a good time to pay attention to the real, legitimate work that is going on into what causes it and what might work to ameliorate the condition. We chose to not try to cure our son, but to work with him on what we figured would be key in his world — learning to speak, to learn at his pace, to develop interests and to have the right to go in whatever path he chose. It wasn’t easy for any of us; there’s at least one former principal who might turn the other way even today if he saw me coming toward him. There are also some incredible moms and dads out there who are also trying to find that path for their child and will go through enough challenges, face too many judgmental people and confront a system that really just doesn’t get autism. Their lives are challenging enough. They don’t need to have junk science thrown at them, too. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s playoff time in the NHL and hockey fans in two of Canada’s three largest cities are on the outside looking in. Both the Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs could not squeeze into the 16-team post-season. For the Leafs, a colossal collapse in March spelled their demise. For the Canucks, a good first couple of months disintegrated into a season of odd incidents and poor play. Both have quickly turned to big names in the game to help turn around their fortunes. The Canucks have brought iconic former captain Trevor Linden back into the fold after he spent six years in the hockey wilderness. The Leafs have secured Brendan Shanahan from the league office, a hall-of-famer who has won both a Stanley Cup and Olympic gold. The big question now is whether these two greats on the ice, now with grey hair sprinkling their former mullets, can turn around the fortunes of these franchises. Linden’s task looks larger than that of Shanahan’s. The game has passed the Canucks. It’s all about speed and size now, and the Canucks’ core players, specifically the Sedin brothers, have never been known for their fleetness of foot. They are smart, skilled and tougher than they are given credit for — they are not, however, fast. One could argue neither of these big announcements from the Canucks or Leafs amounts to a hill of beans. Even someone with a smidgeon of hockey sense could tell you the Leafs need reliable defencemen. Is Shanny going to play D? Does Linden have a time machine to get the speedy Pavel Bure back on the ice? These announcements are window dressing at best. Bring in a big name, parade him in front of the cameras, mollify the disappointed season ticket holders. With huge, no-trade player contracts stifling both teams, we wish Linden and Shanahan luck. So, for whom do we cheer in the quest for the greatest trophy in pro sports begins on Wednesday? The last remaining Canadian-based team, Les Habitants? O Canada! Go, Canada!

Editor: Re: KTW’s front-page story of April 8 (‘Report dismisses KDN site as arts-centre home’) based on freedom-of-information documents: As no one has commented on the issues raised in the article, here are some questions that need to be asked about the secrecy our city engages in and why so much information was redacted, limiting our freedom of information? • Why is the mayor so set on the Seymour Street property as the location of a performing-arts centre? • Who decided the downtown is the right place to build a performing arts centre? Is this one more example of downtown business interests (core property owners) influencing decisions on site developments in the core? • Is the supposed need for another downtown parkade being used as a Trojan horse to get the arts centre downtown? Perhaps the need for parking is already changing due to the problems with the new parking kiosks? • Has the city bought a white elephant when expert opinion says the property is unsuited for a performing-arts centre, that the Kamloops Daily News building would be expensive to demolish and cannot easily be adapted to a parking structure or to another use? • Why hire a competent professional engineer and project manager and pay for a report and then disregard the report? • Why has the city’s property manager been busy recommending and buying a site intended for a performing-arts centre before a thorough, comprehensive public consultation process has taken place? I do hope the city does not consider the noisy, public meeting in a too small space as adequate consultation. Many left early as this highly facilitated and directed meeting provided little opportunity to participate. Jan Kowek Kamloops

This “champ” is grateful for your support of CHAMP Editor: I was born with a partial left hand and was enrolled in The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program when I was six-months-old. I have been a “Champ” ever since. On a recent weekend, I had the opportunity to attend The War Amps 2014 BC CHAMP Seminar in Victoria as a junior counsellor. Junior counsellors are representatives of The War Amps and role models for younger “Champs” as they, too, grow up in the CHAMP Program.

I was able to help out with the seminar during the many sessions and talk to the parents of new child amputees. As a younger “champ,” I always looked up to the junior counsellors and I knew I wanted to be one as soon as I was old enough. They helped teach me everything from tying my shoes and putting up my hair to being proud of my amputation. This year was my second year as a junior counsellor and I had so much fun. Being a junior counsellor is a great way for me to give back to CHAMP for the

years of support the program has given me. Growing up with CHAMP has helped me overcome obstacles, such as bullying, and helped me set the bar high by providing devices that let me take part in my favourite activities. As someone who has benefitted locally, I would like to thank all who support The War Amps Key Tag Service, which has made these programs possible for young amputees like me.

Manslaughter trial moved to Kamloops The man charged in the 1993 killing of Jennifer Cusworth in Kelowna has succeeded in his bid to have his trial moved out of the Okanagan city. Neil George Snelson will now be tried for manslaughter in a Kamloops courtroom. Snelson’s lawyer, Wade Jenson, told court this week that Crown prosecutor Iain

Currie has consented to the location transfer. A date for the upcoming trial will be set on April 28. It’s a move that didn’t come as a surprise to friends and family of Cusworth. Jennifer’s mother, Jean Cusworth, recently pointed out Snelson and his legal team “know how Kelowna” feels about them.

Ask

Kelowna, Jean said, is filled with people “who want justice for Jennifer,” she said outside the courtroom when Snelson made a court appearance in January. And, she said, the move will be more convenient for her and her husband as they’ve recently relocated to Pritchard, just east of Kamloops. The Cusworths,

regardless of location, will be at court every day for the second round of the trial. In 2011, a Kelowna jury convicted Snelson of manslaughter. That verdict was overturned late last year when the Court of Appeal ruled the trial judge erred by showing the jury a portion of video in which Snelson can be

heard telling a police officer he hadn’t yet decided how he was going to plead to charges he was facing. Jenson appealed the judge’s decision to show that portion of video evidence, noting it was prejudicial. Jennifer Cusworth, 19, was found in October 1993, beaten and strangled in a ditch off

I have terrible PMS every month and my periods are really heavy – is there anything natural I can take to get some relief? Premenstrual syndrome, also known as PMS, can include symptoms such as mood swings, depression, cravings, bloating, water retention and headaches. PMS can occur for up to 2 weeks before the onset of a woman’s menstrual flow and affects somewhere between 70 to 90% of women. An imbalance in hormones, especially the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, is commonly the culprit for many women. This is often referred to as “Estrogen Dominance” and can develop as a result of poor diet, a sluggish liver and exposure to excess environmental estrogens found in plastics, cosmetics, pesticides, the birth control pill, or hormone replacement therapy. Estrogen dominance has been linked to a wide range of conditions, including heavy, painful periods, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, infertility and even estrogen dependent cancers such as breast and uterine cancers. The herb milk thistle has a long history of being a very safe liver detoxifier. A healthy liver helps to eliminate and detoxify these harmful and excess estrogens in order to boost the body’s metabolic rate and ensure that estrogen and progesterone are in healthy balance. Other beneficial herbs to help balance high estrogen levels include: curcumin, calciumd-glucarate, indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane. EstroSense® is a safe and effective detoxifier that helps to eliminate those harmful, excess estrogens so that you can have effortless and PMS free periods!

TRU brew program in 2015 By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

If professors Ron Smith and Jon Van Hamme have their way, it won’t be long before students at Thompson Rivers University are drinking beer that’s so local it’s never been off the TRU campus. The biochemistry and microbiology professors are the driving force behind a new diploma program due to arrive next year, which will teach students about the science of brewing beer. “I’ve been teaching my fourth-year students how to make beer since I got here, just in bottles and buckets and pails,” said Van Hamme. “It’s really low-tech.” The science department’s new one-year diploma program would upgrade those microbiology lessons significantly. As part of the program, Smith and Van Hamme will set up a nano-brewery on campus, where the program’s 24 students can brew 200-litre test batches of beer. “One of our dreams is the students will have a competition,” Smith

said, envisioning weekly brewpub sessions at the university where students would promote and serve their campus craftbrews, attempting to sell out their beer first. The brewing diploma will be the fourth such program in Canada, but Smith said TRU is aiming for a more advanced course than what students would get at Olds, Niagara or Kwantlen college. “They teach the kids how to brew and that’s it,” he said. “We’re going to involve research in our program, so the students will end up being involved in research projects. You learn a lot more that way when you’re actually trying to 101- 929 LAVAL CRESCENT, KAMLOOPS

solve a problem.” Students could look at improving brewing equipment, tweaking the fermentation process or finding ways to use more local barley and hops in the brewing process, which could save regional brewers money importing ingredients. Besides learning the science of brewing, students in the program would have options to specialize in the business of brewing — owning their own brewpub, for instance — or in maintaining the machinery used in breweries across the globe. TRU will also offer an advanced program for those wishing to become brewmasters

rather than technicians, something that requires more management skills and specialized knowledge. It would be the first of its kind in Canada. Through the new program, TRU could also become a qualitycontrol hub for smaller breweries in B.C., some of which are sending samples of their beers as far away as Chicago for quality assurance purposes Smith said. When David Beardsell — formerly of the Noble Pig, now starting a brewery of his own in the former Rivers nightclub building — launched his first brewery in the 1990s, the university analyzed his brews as a research project. The student involved in the work now brews for Labatt. While the program is offered as a diploma, Smith said TRU plans to structure its offerings so students can minor in brewing while taking other degrees, or use their brewing credits as part of a interdisciplinary studies degree. “If you go to the major breweries, they like students that have degrees,” he said.

Don’t let skeeters make their homes in those old tires

Justin (left) and Nolan Smailes.

Smailes boys honoured by ALS Society of B.C. Nolan and Justin Smailes of Kamloops have received the Leaders of Tomorrow Award from the ALS Society of B.C. The Leader of Tomorrow Award recognizes youth and young adults under the age of 25 who individually, or as part of a group, make a difference in the lives of those living with ALS through their volunteer efforts. The award recognizes initiatives or efforts undertaken in the previous calendar year in support of ALS, including fundraising, advocacy, public awareness or going above and beyond to care

for an individual living with ALS by providing assistance, companionship and support. Since both boys were toddlers, they have been involved with promoting awareness and fundraising for ALS. They help their mom each year at the Kamloops Walk for ALS as well as with the Kamloops Golf Tournament of Hope. Last August, on a particularly hot Kamloops afternoon, Justin and Nolan manned the Ice Cream Hospitality Hole at the ALS Golf Tournament of Hope for more than six straight hours.

Even with temptation so near at hand, the two had to be coaxed by the ALS BC executive director to enjoy an ice cream bar as they were concerned they might run out and not have enough for the golfers. The boys volunteer with the events leading up to the Annual Walk for ALS in Kamloops, which was inspired by their father, Clayton Smailes, who passed away from ALS five years ago. “This award means a lot to both of us and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our family,” Justin Smailes said.

The ThompsonNicola Regional District, in conjunction with mosquito control program contractor BWP Consulting Inc., is providing free, passenger tire dropoff opportunities in Kamloops, Chase and Barriere this spring. Because unwanted tires are prime mosquito-breeding habitats, TNRD residents are encouraged to take any old passenger vehicle tires or transport tractor-trailer tires (no agricultural tires), with or without rims, and drop them off for recycling on the following dates and locations between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.:

• Saturday, April 26 — Barriere secondary, 4811 Barriere Town Rd.; • Sunday, April 27 — Westsyde secondary, 855 Bebek Rd.; •

Saturday, May 3 — Chase secondary, 420 Cottonwood Rd.; • Sunday, May 4 — Dallas elementary, 296 Harper Rd. “Many people may

not realize that just a small amount of water inside any old tires sitting around their property can create the perfect breeding ground for mosquito larvae,” said BWP Contractor Cheryl Phippen. “By safely recycling these unwanted tires at any of these four free drop-off locations, you’ll remove opportunities for mosquitoes to reproduce around your home. “That helps protect you, your family and neighbours from the nuisance insects and reduces the potential risk of spreading West Nile virus.”

First jetliner landed in 1968 XFrom A1

The first jetliner to land in Kamloops was a Boeing 737, in company colours of green and yellow, on Aug. 14, 1968. Canadian Pacific’s 737 followed three months later, with regular service by the end of the year. Today, Kamloops Airport is served by three passenger airlines, FedEx and three flight schools, as well as a handful of regular charter operations. Managing director Fred Legace said the airport has done a good job of adapting to meet demands throughout its history — and he thinks it will continue to in the future. “I think what we have is a very efficient terminal,” he said. “When the expansion to the

terminal was done, we did it in mind of the idea of expanding further on either side.”

HISTORY — PLANE AND SIMPLE

Cyril Jackson’s aircraft might have been the first documented landing at Kamloops Municipal Airport, but it wasn’t the first time a plane made a stop in what would become the Tournament Capital. Burton said the first documented visit of an airplane to the Kamloops area was in 1910, when an aircraft was set up near what is now McDonald Park. That plane was built by William Wallace Gibson, a Victoria man who is credited with engineering Canada’s first aircraft engine.

Gibson lived briefly in Kamloops later in his life before moving to Calgary. Airplanes operated in and around Kamloops before the airport was built, but not commercially. Under federal regulations, it was OK for aircraft to use fields for takeoffs and landings as long as it wasn’t for commercial purposes. In the 1930s, as the City of Kamloops worked to iron out its airport plans, a pair of local men, Humphrey Madden and Joe Bertolino, opened an aviation school, using the fields below Mount Paul as a home-base airfield — the only structure on the site being the canvas tent used by the school. The school was deemed commercial and the federal government shut it down.

Local labour council remains opposed to Ajax XFrom A1

Gibbons, however, said his local isn’t waiting for results — he wants jobs. He cited loss of unionized workers at Weyerhaeuser’s sawmill, at Domtar, at Pollard Banknote and at the Kamloops Daily News. “The anti-Ajax side, Mr. Boyce included, aren’t ready to concede a safe Ajax is possible. They’re not prepared to consider the possibility. We believe it’s possible,” Gibbons said. In response, Boyce said he isn’t interested in getting into a spat with his fellow Steelworkers’ local, stressing his views are his own, not the union’s. “It’s not nothing to do with Steelworkers and the Labour Council and Richard Boyce versus Marty Gibbons,” he said. “It’s got to do with the fact I’ve got 40 years’ experience dealing with mining companies and the industry. I live in Kamloops and I want Kamloops to stay healthy.” The proposed open-pit copper mine within the city’s boundaries south of Aberdeen has caused rifts in the local labour movement. Originally, Boyce castigated the Kamloops and District Labour Council for its anti-Ajax stance, then later changed his position.

As a result, neither Steelworkers’ union locals are part of the labour council. Peter Kerek, president of Kamloops & District Labour Council, said there have been no recent efforts to bring the two locals back. “You have opposing viewpoints. We have councils and conventions and debate things. Hopefully locals don’t walk away when they disagree with something,” Kerek said. Boyce said despite the fact he has stressed his views are his own, a number of Highland Valley Copper worker thanked him after his weekend speech. “There’s a whole lot of people who understand mining all too well,” Boyce said. “They have homes that will border the mine. They don’t want a mine there.” Kerek said his organization, which represents several-thousand union members in Kamloops, remains resolutely against the proposed mine. It polled its members in 2011, who were strongly against the mine locating so close to the city. “The feeling in the labour council is overwhelming against Ajax . . . The medical and scientific evidence against this is what’s won over a lot of people in the anti-Ajax camp,” Kerek said.

LOCAL NEWS

Supreme Court decision could affect local case By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A pending decision by the Supreme Court of Canada could impact how the second murder trial of a Kamloops man plays out, a judge has been told. Robert Balbar was found guilty in 2009 of murder in the death of his common-law wife, Heather Hamill, more than six years earlier — a crime he confessed to after RCMP made him the target of their controversial Mr. Big investigation technique. Balbar was supposed to have a void dire begin in June, with a trial to follow in the fall. But, in court on Tuesday, April 15, lawyers decided to push things back so they could see if the admissibility of Mr. Big evidence is altered by the country’s highest court in the case of Nelson Hart, a Newfoundland father who admitted to Mr. Big officers he killed his two daughters. “We were expecting we might not go ahead in June depending on whether Hart had been decided in the Supreme Court of Canada,” Crown prosecutor Joel Gold said. “In terms of its facts, this is not a complicated case, in the Crown’s view — it’s a Mr. Big, and that is the bulk of the evidence.” Mr. Big stings are elaborate operations in which undercover RCMP officers pose as gangsters in a fictitious criminal organization and attempt to recruit murder suspects. The investigations are made to culminate in a meeting with the organization’s boss — Mr. Big — at which the suspect is asked to come clean about any criminal wrongdoings. Hart’s conviction was overturned on appeal, but the Crown took it to the Supreme Court of Canada, which will be looking at whether Mr. Big confessions are reliable given the circumstances of the investigations. Hamill’s body was found on Aug. 1, 2003,

at Indian Point, across the South Thompson River from Riverside

Park. It’s believed Hamill, who was sometimes

known to have worked in the sex trade, was killed five days earlier.

The charges against Balbar came after a three-month Mr. Big

sting in Merritt, which was launched in an effort to dispel rumours a

serial killer was at work in Kamloops plying on sex-trade workers.

BCTF PREPARING FOR STRIKE ACTION? By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

After rejecting an offer from the school district bargaining agency for a long-term contract, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) went to the Labour Relations Board (LRB) this week to establish essential-service levels for strike action. BCTF members voted 89 per cent in March to endorse a three-stage strike plan that can begin with 72 hours’ notice. Phase one includes restricting communication with school managers, arriving no more than an hour before and leaving an hour after school hours and refusing supervision of students outside class time. It does not affect pre-arranged voluntary activities such as coaching, but the refusal of supervision requires essentialservice levels that compel some teachers to assure the safety of students while they

are out of classes. Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for B.C.’s 60 school districts, said there are some rural schools with no management staff to supervise playgrounds. Typically it is the employers’ association that seeks an essential-services order but, this time, the BCTF applied. That’s unusual for a union that has a history of opposing essential-service orders at the LRB and the International Labour Organization, Cameron said. Cameron said if stage one strike action begins after the Easter break, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) will seek an order that the union pay for its extended benefits during any withdrawal of service. That would cost about $5 million a month for 41,000 public-school teachers. “In order that there is, in fact, pressure on both sides, BCPSEA needs to respond

to any phase one activities with measures that put corresponding pressure on the union,” Cameron wrote in a letter to BCTF president Jim Iker. Cameron’s initial offer is for a 10-year agreement with pay increases totalling 6.5 per cent over the first six years and additional wage increases to be negotiated for the final four years. BCTF negotiators countered with a three-year proposal with three per cent plus a cost-of-living increase in each year. With compounding and current estimates of inflation, the BCPSEA calculates that could amount to 13.5 per cent over three years. Phase two of the BCTF plan is rotating one-day walkouts in districts around the province. Phase three, a full-scale strike, would require a second vote by members to authorize.

It may be that I came into the store at 5:55 p.m., and it’s true that had I stopped to read the stickers on the front door before entering, I’d have realized that the store closes at 6 p.m. on Sundays. When I turn to pluck a lid off the pile and begin closing it over the now-full container, the girl huffs back down the aisle. No doubt it was to fetch her peanut-butter brush and other grinder-cleaning supplies, after posting a picture of me at the

In fact, as my purchases add up and I am shown the way to the door, I come to think that it’ll just make my Honey-Roasted Peanut-Butter Cookies taste all the more sweet.

Honey-roasted peanut butter cookies 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 tsp. baking soda 1 cup butter, softened 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1 large egg 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 1 cup freshly-ground huoney-roasted peanut butter 1/2 cup honey-roasted or salted peanuts, coarsely chopped Preheat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy — about three minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until well-combined. Mix in the peanut butter. Reduce speed to low, then add flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Fold in the peanuts. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment paperlined baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. Flatten with the floured bottom of a drinking glass. Bake until edges are lightly golden — about 25 minutes — and transfer the cookies with parchment to a cooling rack.

Arrest made in Flooding causes Ontario after evacuations in Heartbleed Eastern Canada computer bug 30% to OTTAWA — Police have charged a 19-yearold man from London, Ont., in connection with the recent breach of taxpayer data from the Canada Revenue Agency. The RCMP say Stephen Arthuro SolisReyes was arrested at home on Tuesday, April 15, and is charged with unauthorized use of a computer and mischief in relation to data. The agency was forced to shut down its publicly accessible website last week as the world learned about the Heartbleed computer bug, a previously undiscovered global Internet security vulnerability. Earlier this week, the agency said 900 socialinsurance numbers had been compromised. The loss was detected on Friday, April 11, but the agency delayed telling Canadians about it at the request of the Mounties. — Canadian Press

Special prosecution after mass murder CALGARY — A Crown prosecutor will be brought in from outside Calgary to handle the court case involving the city’s worst mass murder. The accused, Matthew de Grood, 22, is the son of a senior city police officer. An Alberta Justice spokeswoman said an Edmonton prosecutor will be assigned to the file to address perceived conflict in the case. De Grood faces five counts of first-degree murder. The victims had been at a house party celebrating the last day of university classes when a suspect walked in, grabbed a knife and started stabbing people. Police say they are still trying to determine a motive for the attack. — Canadian Press

Rain, melting snow and ice-choked rivers forced waters in parts of Eastern Canada to rise this week, submerging roads, filling basements

and knocking out power as officials told people to prepare in case they had to seek higher ground. The RCMP in New

Brunswick said many roads in the province were flooded and they advised people not to attempt driving through those areas.

The situation was similar in Quebec. In Sherbrooke, about 500 people were forced from their homes Officials in Manitoba

warned the prolonged cold spring will make flooding more likely for a few homes in Winnipeg. — Canadian Press

Marois bids adieu with no regrets PQ leader insists Quebec better off as sovereign nation CANADIAN PRESS

QUEBEC CITY — Pauline Marois bid a tearful goodbye to politics on Wednesday, saying she has no regrets and that Quebecers will always fight to get a country. In a political career that spanned more than 30 years, Marois held various cabinet positions before becoming premier in 2012 with a minority Parti Quebecois government. Her stewardship of the province as Quebec’s first female premier would last just

18 months. On Wednesday, April 16, she met with incoming premier Philippe Couillard, whose Liberals romped to victory in last week’s election with 70 of the province’s 125 seats. The PQ was relegated to just 30 seats, prompting Marois to announce her political curtain call that night. Officially, she will remain PQ leader until a party meeting in early June when Stephane Bedard takes over. The outgoing premier said she was very proud of her govern-

ment’s accomplishments. She said she was able to control government expenses, improve Quebec’s economy and defend the province’s interests over the last

18 months. An emotional Marois had to wipe away tears and ask someone for a tissue as she read a statement and answered questions after her private meeting with Couillard. “It’ll soon be seven years that I left my garden, after a short retirement, because I still wanted to serve Quebec,’’ she said. “Since then, a lot has happened and, I think you know as well as I do, that it wasn’t all smooth sailing. “But, I don’t regret anything.’’

Asked about the state of the sovereigntist movement, Marois said there will always be Quebecers fighting for a country. “I think this project [sovereignty] is always an important necessary project for our nation and I am sure many leaders, many citizens will continue to fight to be a country one today. I don’t know when. I don’t know how. “But one thing I know is that we [would] be in the best situation if we were independent. I am sure of that. We are different. We are a nation.’’

NEIS

KENNETH MARTIN ANGELI

Today, April 14 2014, we mourn the loss of our dear papa, husband, and dad, Clarence Neis.

December 27, 1945 – April 12, 2014

Clarence Neis was born February 24th 1933 in Cudworth Saskatchewan. Clarence is predeceased by his parents and all five siblings. He passed away warm in his bed, with his wife of 58 years by his side, and his loving children and grandchildren surrounding him. Leaving behind him is his beautiful wife, Joyce Neis, and 7 children. His seven children who loved their dad greatly: Shirley (Bob), Leo, Edward, Bertha (Roger), Agnes (Tom), Angeline (Phil), and April. Clarence had 15 grandchildren and nine greatgrandchildren who he cherished dearly. Clarence had many hobbies that made him the wonderful man he was. He enjoyed tending to his garden, curling during the winter months, lawn bowling during the summer months, and playing hockey during his younger years. During the winter he would turn his garden into a skating rink to feel and see the happiness of spending time with his children and grandchildren. Clarence was a faithful man whom was part of the OLPH parish and strong willed for the faith he believed in. He was passionate about the job he had, for 38 years, of driving trains for the CN railway. Even after retirement, he continued his love for the railway by driving the train for the Wildlife Park. Dedicating his time to making the children smile, by blowing the horn of the train, was always a favourite way to spend his time. Clarence was an ear when you needed to talk, a hug when you needed comforting, and a wise soul when you needed advice. If you would like to celebrate the life of Clarence Neis; the Prayers are Tuesday April 22 at 7:00 pm, and the funeral is Wednesday April 23 at 11:00 am at OLPH, 635 Tranquille Rd, Father Peter officiating.

When Ken moved to Kamloops, one of his Àrst jobs was driving for Trimac which eventually led to his own trucking business as an owner operator. KAT Trucking was operational from 1976 to 2007 which was then purchased by Trimac...talk about a full circle. His passion for trucking was his biggest challenge and his greatest reward which he lived and breathed.

Breathing ďŹ re into dragon boating By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

RAGON boating has experienced growth across Canada in recent years, but the sport has been stagnating in the Tournament Capital. The Kamloops Dragon Boat Club (KDBC) brass is trying to spread the good word, looking for new members to hop on board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people think dragon boating is just for people who are older and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that at all,â&#x20AC;? club president Will Parei said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a seniors component to it, but we want all ages.â&#x20AC;? Dragon boaters have

been racing up and down the Thompson rivers since 1994. Pioneer Park is the KDBC headquarters. Rae Fawcett, who began paddling about seven years ago, said there might be another stereotype keeping people away. The Spirit Warriors, a dragon-boat team for breast-cancer survivors, has received attention for their inspiring efforts in the water, but the KDBC is not strictly for those who have battled the disease. There were more than 40 members at a recent Wednesday evening practice, enough to send out two full boats, so the club is by no means struggling, but Parei is confident its best days are to come.

The River City clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ace in the hole might just be its most recent hiring, Stan Marek, who was last week named the Kamloops Sports Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach of the year for his work with the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were talking about what to do with the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals and we found that we could co-operate and reach together those goals,â&#x20AC;? said Marek, who last year came to Canada from the Czech Republic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, we want to make people happy. This is the most important thing and this is what dragon boating is about â&#x20AC;&#x201D; enjoy the sport and nature and then we will have some good

The club practises three times a week, sending out two or three boats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; each of them 48-feet long, weighing about 900 pounds and capable of holding 22 people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; depending on how many members show up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ideally, we would like to grow this club to the point where, every night of the week, there are boats going up and down the river,â&#x20AC;? Parei said. Attracting more members would enable the club to split up into teams, allowing paddlers to be separated based on levels of competitiveness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at Langley,â&#x20AC;? Parei said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That city has 22 teams. They stay together and practise on a specific night.â&#x20AC;?

results, which will make people happy and more excited.â&#x20AC;? The KDBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season runs from April 1 to Sept. 30. There are plans to attend four festivals, dragon boatingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term for competitions, with the club looking to send competitive and novice teams to the weekend events. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not mandatory for members to compete at festivals. When KTW attended practice, the boats were in the water for about an hour and a half. Marek marshalled the training session, shouting out instructions in his thick Czech accent, leading the crews up and down the river. XSee KAMLOOPS A26

Geoff Blunden of Kamloops plans on bursting off the starting line at the Boston Marathon with a clear mind, untroubled by the threat of a terrorist attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can you do to prepare for the kind of thing that took place last year except to rely on organizers?â&#x20AC;? said Blunden, who at 63 is participating for the first time in the iconic run on Monday, April 21. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They promise the security will be great and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m prepared to rely on that.â&#x20AC;? Thousands gathered on Tuesday, April 15, to mark the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, which killed three people and injured at least 264 others. There will be 36,000 runners at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marathon, up from 27,000 last year, among them three Kamloopsians â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Blunden, Anders Ganstal and Rick Jenkner. Blunden qualified after running his eighth marathon, the Arizona Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Roll Marathon, in January 2013. He crossed the finish line in 3:50. The cutoff time for qualification for the Boston race in his division was 3:55. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eighth time was the charm,â&#x20AC;? the Urban

Systems employee said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never started a marathon saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is going to be the one that I hit my qualifying time.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It just happened. Everything kind of came together.â&#x20AC;? Blunden will not let what happened last year cast a shadow over what promises to be a joyous occasion for him and so many others pounding the pavement on Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tragic that it happened,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people that get there are there to celebrate a past accomplishment because you have to qualify. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a shame that it was picked as a target. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having said that, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not worried. Security is going to be very much heightened.â&#x20AC;?

Record number of spectators expected at iconic marathon; many will be searched XFrom A25

Boston officers will be aided by 100 additional security cameras, along with bomb-sniffing dogs. “In this world, you never eliminate risk; you never bring it down to zero,” Massachusetts State Police Col. Timothy Alben told CNN. “But, we are working very hard at reducing that risk level and managing it to the best of our collective abilities.” The 26.2-mile course runs through eight cities and towns and

it is expected to be surrounded by a record number of spectators, according to the Boston Athletic Association. Marathon-related events will bring in an estimated $175.8 million, the highest-ever economic impact number, according to the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau. At the anniversary gathering on Tuesday, police confiscated two suspicious bags, but both were eventually deemed safe. A man carrying one of the bags

has been charged with possessing a hoax device, according to CNN. Marathon organizers have

assured participants everything in their power is being done to increase safety measures. “The website and all the messaging that we’ve had from Boston has told us they have set out really strict requirements in terms of what you can and cannot bring anywhere near the finish area. For instance, no backpacks and no bulky clothing,” Blunden said. “At certain points as you cross from general public areas into start and finish areas, you may be subject to search. They make it clear

— be prepared for this.” Blunden likened his trip to Boston to what the Kamloops contingent of Olympians endured when they went to the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, earlier this year. “You want to participate in these things, so you go with the confidence that things will be fine,” he said. “These are once-in-a-lifetime events. There’s no guarantee there will be another opportunity.”

Paddlers followed his cadence. He would push on the gas pedal, then let up. The last leg home, with dusk creeping over the Tournament Capital, was highlighted by a few friendly races. Fawcett was asked how she got hooked on the sport. “For me, it’s the camaraderie and the people and it’s an incredibly good way

to have physical exercise,” Fawcett said. “If you like team sports, it’s perfect, because you have to get in sync with the people in front of you and beside you. “You work as a team and yet you press yourself. And no, it’s not just for old people.”

Kamloops bidding on world women’s hockey championship co-ordinator Sean Smith said. “It just solidifies our reputation for event hosting as the Tournament Capital, to host the world’s and the women’s best hockey

By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Looking to again bring its Tournament Capital moniker to the international stage, Kamloops will submit a bid next week in hopes of playing host to the IIHF Women’s World Hockey Championship when it visits Canada in 2016. Kamloops has already been named the host of the 2014 Four Nations Cup later this year and was asked by Hockey Canada to submit a bid for the 2016 championship.

The location should be selected in May, with the event running toward the end of March or beginning of April in 2016. “It’s the Four Nations Cup on a grander scale,” Tournament Capital

teams.” Smith knows which cities are

involved in the bidding process, but couldn’t reveal the competition, as that information is confidential. He remains confident, though, and feels Kamloops has a good shot at winning the bid. Kamloops is the only B.C. location in the running. “What Kamloops minor hockey has started with an all-female hockey tournament in November . . . has identified that female hockey is on the rise, interest-wise,” Smith said. Should the bid be successful, it

would provide a boost to the city as a whole — 100,000 tickets were sold for last year’s event in Ottawa. Both McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre and Interior Savings Centre would play host to games as a part of the bid. Smith said the event will be promoted in B.C., Alberta and the Pacific Northwest. “There’s definitely some promotional plans in place to bring thousands of people to Kamloops to watch over the course of the week.”

McManus heads east for latest WolfPack soccer recruit Ciara Ambrose of Aurora, Ont., is the third recruit to sign on for the TRU WolfPack’s inaugural Canadian Interuniversity Sports soccer season. The 5-foot-5 midfielder currently plays for her high school team, the Country Day School Cyclones, and Markham under-18 and under-21 teams. WolfPack women’s soccer coach Tom McManus said Ambrose will play as either an attacking midfielder or a striker.

TOURNAMENT CAPITAL SPORTS

“I’m very excited about coming to TRU and being a part of the WolfPack,” Ambrose said. “In many ways it seems like a homecoming — I have been visiting Kamloops and Sun Peaks each year since 2000. I decided several years ago that I wanted to attend TRU.”

Ambrose was an MVP with her highschool team and led them as a captain. She was a part of the Cyclones team that won league and national championships in her Grade 11 year. “She is a fit player and has done very well playing for her teams in Ontario,” McManus said. Earlier this year, TRU received commitments from defenders Christine Fergin of Waterloo and Sara

Seebach of Kamloops.

Blazers’ prospects at Telus Cup Kamloops Blazers’ fans can rest assured there’s young talent waiting in the wings, as three prospects will play in the 2014 Telus Cup for the midget AAA national championship later this month. Forward Jake Kryski will suit up for the Okanagan Rockets, while defenceman Dawson Davidson will play for the Moose Jaw

Generals. Goaltender Connor Ingram will play for the Prince Albert Mintos. Kryski was acquired by the Blazers in 2013 in the trade that saw 20-year-old goaltender Cole Cheveldave leave town. The 16-year-old had 48 points, including 16 goals, in 37 games with the Rockets this season. He also chipped in with 11 points in the playoffs and scored the gamewinner in the B.C. Major Midget League

championship final. Davidson was selected by Kamloops in the third round of the 2013 WHL bantam draft. The Saskatchewan product had 39 points, including five goals,

in 42 games with the Generals this season. His team will play host to the Telus Cup. Ingram was the top goaltender in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League, where Davidson also plays, posting a 16-43-0 record for Prince Albert. He recorded a goalsagainst average of 1.98 and a save percentage of .928. For More Spoirts Briefs Log on to kamloopsthisweek.com

Masters finish lacked drama

T

HE GOLF god who penned the back nine of the Masters needs to give his head a shake — he shanked one into the pine straw. What a letdown. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a hate on for Bubba Watson, but there were so many more captivating storylines that went begging on Sunday. The CBS broadcast opened with Fred Couples birdieing the first two holes, leaving the golf world to wonder if the 54-yearold could don a second Green Jacket. He would have displaced Jack Nicklaus and become the oldest player to win at Augusta, but Boom Boom fizzled down the stretch, disappointing his army of fans, myself included. At the other end of the age spectrum, 20-year-old Jordan

MARTY HASTINGS The Tattle of Hastings Spieth, who was tied for the third-round lead with Watson, had a shot at becoming the youngest player to win the tourney. With bogeys in consecutive holes heading into the turn on Sunday, Spieth, who looked destined to win after canning an incredible bunker shot on Hole 4, relinquished the lead and never made a charge to recover it. The world’s most interesting man, Miguel Angel Jimenez, the Mechanic, had an excellent tournament and entered the final round

just two shots back of the leaders. What I would have given to see him smoking a cigar and drinking champagne in the coveted coat. But, no, it was not to be. Jimenez, 50, was also in line to claim the title of eldest player to win the Masters. Jonas Blixt was not to become Sweden’s first Masters winner, perennial runner-up Lee Westwood couldn’t get it going and fellow major-less hopefuls Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar and Thomas Bjorn watched their chances slip away. A few of the aforementioned golfers were still long shots heading into Amen Corner, but none of them mustered a heroic comeback and Watson cruised to his second Masters victory. I will admit the scene of his adorable two-year-old son waddling onto the 18th

green was pretty cute, but, call me jaded, I would have traded that in for drama on the finishing holes. (In fact, the fathertoddler embrace would have been even more memorable if Bubba had just lost in a playoff to Fred . . . Oh, look-atthe-wee-boy-consolehis-dad type thing.) There was no backand-forth shootout, no Greg Norman-like collapses, no Van de Veldian calamities, no glorious approach shots on 18 and no putts where the tension was palpable. Here’s hoping the golf gods get it right next year. Seve is up there. He could give them some advice. The Tattle of Hastings appears in KTW on Thursdays.

Sunrays shine at regionals The Kamloops Sunrays had a strong showing at the B.C. Regional Championships in Surrey on the weekend. In Level 1 figures, Ariel Trouton placed second, Bethany Robertson placed fourth, Kate Lieb placed fifth and Kennedy Coates was sixth. Competing in the Level 2 division, Kessa Kwiatkowski took gold in solo and figures, Megan Allen placed second in figures and the two girls won gold with their duet performance. In Level 3, Charlotte Ribalkin placed second in figures and first in solo, Taylor Baxter was third in figures and second in solo and Ribalkin and Baxter claimed gold in duet. Girls in Kamloops are invited to try the sport for free at a Sunrays anniversary celebration in the Canada Games Aquatic Centre on Tuesday, April 22. The session will run from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Judokas wrap season with hardware The last Judo BC-sanctioned tournament of the 2013-2014 competition season was held in Vernon earlier this month. Aberdeen Judo Academy brought nine judokas to the event. Winning gold were Tiago, Aaron Okano, Graeme Hanks, Nicholas Plumtree, Kiara Endean and Drew Ramsay. Matthew Virdee, Morgan Endean and Jarek Masson earned silver medals. Masson and Morgan Endean picked up bronze medals.

Everything you need to know to become a gamer By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Derek Johnson is a mental-fitness fanatic, which is why he owns a game store — to get regular mental exercise by playing games he loves. The proprietor of downtown’s All A-Board Games calls himself a Magic player first and store owner second. In fact, Johnson opened his downtown Kamloops shop almost six years ago because he wanted a place to compete against other players in the popular collectible card game. The self-proclaimed gamer is quick to distinguish between those who take games seriously and those who play to occupy time. “Mentally, a gamer is someone who prioritizes fun,” Johnson said. And, there is all sorts of fun to be had — games with cards, dice, strategy or chance played among friends, in tournaments and with the potential of earning top players some serious coin. Johnson believes society needs to disconnect and games, Magic or otherwise, are a way to do so. “Being connected all the time is unhealthy to everything we care about,” he said of society’s fixation with video

SOME GAMES WORTH TRYING: The Spiel des Jahres German Game Award is the most prestigious award a game can win, according to All A-Board Games owner Derek Johnson. “That’s the Oscar,” he said. The 2014 winning game won’t be announced until this summer, but here’s a list of winners from the last few years. 2013: Hanabi — a co-operative game in which players place cards on the table in order to make perfect fireworks. 2012: Kingdom Builder — players build kingdoms by building settlements, earning gold to win the game. 2011: Qwirkle — a wooden block-game without a board in which players line up matching blocks based on colour and shape. For another place to find interesting games, Johnson recommends a blog called Tabletop by game guru Wil Wheaton, formerly of Star Trek: The Next Generation. “You get to see how [a game] works, why it’s fun and why you want to play it,” Johnson said. Visit the blog by going online to wilwheaton.net/category/tabletop.

games and smartphones. The shift to disconnect is nothing new, but Johnson has noticed the traditional game-in-abox has received recent play in mainstream media. He thinks it’s because “gamers are getting their non-gamer friends to play” and that social and innovative board games are leaking out from traditionally inclusive circles and into the general public. You don’t need the desire to become a tournament player to get your start. While there are the classics — such as Monopoly and Scrabble — Johnson recommends four games to help develop different gamer skills. Settlers of Catan is a good place to start, he

said, because it teaches players about resource management. The medievalthemed game Dominion provides an introduction to deck games, he said, while Carcassone is a fun way to learn tilebased games. Ticket to Ride opens up the Euro genre. Such games, Johnson said, typically include full involvement of all players, strategy over luck and final scoring that is tallied after a set timeframe. “We call those [four games] the gateway games,” Johnson said, noting Kamloops is at least five years behind the Lower Mainland in this trend. A half-decade is quite the gap when you consider the life cycle of a typical game.

“Games have two to four years unless they make it big time,” Johnson said, pointing out Settlers of Catan is already about 15 years old. Johnson’s favourite game, the strategy- and luck-based trading game Starfarers of Catan, is no longer being produced, but he has two sets. He hopes to make it big as a Magic player — even having travelled as far as Barcelona to play — and prefers games of strategy. Games of luck — using dice or other elements of chance — are often associated with children’s games where one has no control over your destiny and anyone can win. Some games provide all information needed

to win, while others slowly unwind. Chess, for example, is entirely strategybased, with a player in possession of everything they need to win as the game begins. “I don’t typically play games that are luck-based,” Johnson said. He loves games, but acknowledges the hardest part is often finding someone to play with or somewhere to play. Johnson’s store at 334 Seymour St. has tables and chairs for those who want to stop in and try a game or meet with friends. If you have no one to play with, you can show up to game night on Thursdays or rent a game and take it home. Magic classes are offered to beginners. And, for those reluctant to unplug and play, Johnson has a couple of questions. “What do you like to do with your time?” he asked. “Do you like to activate your mind or activate your body?”

Laughingstock Theatre offers adult night out By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Todd Sullivan’s first piece of advice for enjoying Dinner and Drinks? Leave the kids at home. “It’s definitely a play about adult situations,” said the director and writer of the Laughingstock Theatre’s new dinner-theatre production. “We haven’t counted the number of times the word ‘f---’ is used, but there are a few of them.” Set over the course of six different meals in the same restaurant, Sullivan’s play weaves together stories of couples at the beginning and end of relationships and all stages in between. Abbey Wale (recently seen in Laughingstock’s 2013 Christmas Pantomime Aladdin) and Carlo Sia play a pair of young friends who must decide what comes next the day after a drunken hookup. At another table, a couple takes stock of their possessions as they prepare to divorce and find themselves reminiscing about better days, while on the more established end of the spectrum, an elderly couple celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. “The comedy for the most part is based around sex, but it’s also based around situations that I think most people will recognize,” Sullivan said. This is his first production in the

Tournament Capital — “ I’m definitely arriving in Kamloops with a bit of a bang,” he quipped — after relocating to the city from Williams Lake, where Dinner and Drinks was first staged. Originally a one-act play, it caught the eye of Laughingstock Theatre producer Vance Schneider at a festival in Kelowna. For its Kamloops run, Sullivan has expanded the show into two acts, delving into more facets of romantic life. The show is also a Laughingstock first. While the company hasn’t attempted dinner theatre before, Sullivan said Dinner and Drinks seemed like a natural trial run, given its restaurant setting. The show runs Friday, April 25, and Saturday, April 26, at the Kamloops Coast Hotel and Convention Centre, 1250 Rogers Way in Aberdeen. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. in Prestons restaurant, with the approximately two-hour show following in the theatre downstairs. Tickets are available through the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., online at kamloopslive.ca or by phone at 250-3745483. Show-only tickets are also available. For menu information, visit the theatre company online at thelaughingstock.ca.

Authors to mould minds and pens of youth By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Lee Edward Fodi is a daydreamer. He describes himself as a specialist in the — er, art? — and he loves to teach it to kids. Fodi acknowledges children are usually pretty good at daydreaming, but haven’t learned some of its applications — like writing. The author of the Kendra Kandlestar series, among others, will be one of the authors on hand to guide young minds through the art of writing at the annual Young Authors Conference, organized by the Kamloops-Thompson school district. Fodi’s workshop is called Welcome to the Monster Shop. Joining Fodi in leading workshops with the

elementary-student contingent that will be at the May 2 event will be: • KC Dyer, author of Seeds of Time, Secret of Light, Shades of Red, Ms. Zephyr’s Notebook, A Walk Though a Window and Facing Fire. Her workshop title is Build Your Own Time Machine (And Don’t Be Tardis!) • Kaille George, an editor at Simply Read Books, co-creator of the Simply Small board-book series and author of Mr. M the Exploring Sreamer, The Melancholic Mermaid, Spark Snow White and Rose Red and Clover’s Luck. Her topic is Magical Animal Adoption Agency. • Jacquie Pearce, author of Discovering Emily, The Truth About Rats (and Dogs), Manga Touch and Siege. Her workshop is Unfolding the Her’s

woman of the event committee and principal at Rayleigh, Heffley Creek and Sun Peaks elementary schools, said one of the most exciting parts for her is watching the authors work with the budding authors and engage their imagination.

Your resume is your calling card Writing a curriculum vitae is a very important step for anyone looking for work. A CV describes your professional career, your skills and abilities. While it should always be concise, a quick once over should attract the attention of prospective employers, encouraging them to want to know more about you. You may think it’s easy to create an eye-catching CV, but nothing could be further from the truth! A few proven rules must be followed to allow you to stand out in this competitive world. There are no excuses for poorly writ-

ten CVs these days: Countless examples and templates are available for writing, updating or revising a CV for those who need a clear, concise document. If you want more personalized help, many human re-

sources consulting companies will, for a fee, write your CV with the information you will have provided, either in person, or on-line via the Internet. These specialists study each client’s specific case, create

new sections in the CV adapted to their particular situation and build a strategic page layout with the predominant key points at the forefront.

FAITH

Using GPS to connect you to everything

I

N MY PAST two Faith columns, I have been writing about the need for a practice of intentional silence/meditation in our lives. You might say to yourself: “Why? Why bother? Why take 20 to 30 minutes a day to sit in silence? “Why waste my time? I can spend that time doing something meaningful and getting something worthwhile done. What can I accomplish in meditation?” What you end up with when you have a solid meditation practice in place is a new you, a more peaceful, more gentle, less agitated you that can, in fact, “accomplish” a whole lot more than you could before. But, the beautiful, wonderful thing that happens is you are no longer attached to whatever occurs in your life. If something comes along that would

BRIAN PUIDA MITCHELL You Gotta Have FAITH normally knock you out of the box, you find yourself moving through it with ease. You find yourself no longer reacting to situations, but responding with a sense of freedom you didn’t know was in you. You discover that whatever happens to you is just fine. You can handle anything — and do it with the ease of falling off a log. This column appears under the banner of Faith. We tend to think of faith as belief, but it isn’t.

Belief is just something your mind pieces together. It’s an intellectual castle. Real faith is an experience, an intuitive knowing your hunger for real meaning is being met. It is a sense of complete trust in something beyond your own egoic self. Whatever you choose to call it, however you describe it (the Universe, the Divine, Ultimate Reality, Nature, Life, Presence, or — as I will most often refer to it — God) there is a heart-knowing that comes to a person who is willing to move beyond their personality, beyond their small self, and into a larger, deeper self — a self intimately linked to whatever you have come to understand as the ground of your being. Real faith cannot be attained through a set of beliefs.

It can only be gradually arrived at through an emptying — a moving beyond your personal likes, dislikes, opinions, fears, expectations and compulsions. This emptying of our small selves is what all meditation practices are about. Only when we have moved beyond the chatter in our minds will we be capable of opening to our true self. As I indicated earlier, it doesn’t matter finally which intentional

silence/meditation practice you choose to undertake. They will all lead you to this deeper self. And it doesn’t matter which faith you practice as you will be led to that self that is tethered to what I am calling God. The practice I will be outlining is a traditional Christian practice called Centering Prayer. I would strongly argue it does not matter of what your faith roots consist.

AUTO MARKET

Chev Malibu is more than just a pretty face This year’s version of the stalwart sedan shows Chevy is on the right track By Jim Robinson METROLAND MEDIA wheels.ca

N

OTHING STANDS STILL IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY AND THAT APPLIES PARTICULARLY TO PRODUCT. Totally re-designed for 2013, the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu has already been “refreshed” based on customer feedback. The most noticeable difference is in the front styling with a new grille/character lines treatment to give more of a styling affinity to the Impala full-size sedan and the Traverse full-size CUV. On the inside, the Malibu signature twin cockpit front seating is retained but is now roomier notably in the back seat, which was and on tight side in the 2013 model. Another change is in the centre console which buyers found bulky. For 2014 it is slimed down with a novel tandem cupholder each with a slot in front designed to hold a smart phone snugly instead of having it rattle around. And if the smart phone is an Apple, connectivity has been enhanced to include Siri, which opens all kinds of possibilities for hands-free voice activated operation with features such as text-to-voice. My driving partner has an iPhone and tried to call his wife but couldn’t make it work. I am wedded to my flip phone so I’m out in the cold. But I know my daughter and son would have it synced in seconds, while looking at me and shaking their heads over why they have such a Luddite as a dad. The new Malibu ups safety with a wide variety of standard aides such as ABS, traction control and stability control but also available is a much enhanced camera system. In the 2013 Malibu there was a front-facing camera in the upper windshield for the forward collision alert system and one at the rear for back up. For 2014, these are bolstered by Blind Zone Alert on each side, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist augmenting the rear camera.

The 2014 Malibu is available in three main trim levels starting with the base LS at $24,995. The mid-trim model is the LT that comes in three sub-trims ranging from $26,795-$30,215. At the top of the ladder is the LTZ in 1LZ trim at $32,996 and the 2LZ at $34,715. As in 2013, there are two four-cylinder engines with a V6 no longer available. The direct fuel injection 2.5litre DOHC is the most widely used in the 2014 Malibu, producing 196 hp and 186 lb/ft of torque. The big change is a move to stop/start technology with fuel consumption of 8.0/5.3L/100 km city/highway. This marks the first time start/stop has been used in the Canadian mid-size sedan segment and relies on two batteries — a 12-volt Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) primary battery for the engine and a 12-volt AGM in the trunk to power things such as air conditioning and auxiliaries when the engine is shut down at a stop. Start/stop is more complicated than just turning off the engine at rest and then re-starting when the driver releases the brake pedal. On the Malibu the system takes into consideration outside air temperature, shift lever and brake pedal position, engine/ transmission operating temperatures, vehicle speed, battery charge level and climate control settings. In addition, the longest the system will shut down the engine is two minutes. Also part of Malibu’s start/ stop on the 2.5-litre is a new sixspeed automatic that has been designed for fuel economy and, also, performance. The other engine available is a 2.0-litre turbo DOHC unit only the top 3LT and 2LZ models with a six-speed automatic but without stop/start. It produces 259 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque. That’s more than the 260 lb/ ft from the same engine in the 2013 Malibu and Chevrolet claims the 2.0-litre’s torque is the best in segment and that includes V6s. Fuel consumption is rated at 10.1/6.6L/100 km city/highway with a 0-100 km/h time of just

Re-introduced in 2013 with a totally new design, the Chevrolet Malibu underwent a mild refresh for 2014.

over six seconds. Again listening to customers, the front struts now have rebound springs and the steering response has been tightened along with better brake feel. During the press launch, I spent most of my time in the LTZ with turbo engine, with my driving partner remarking, ”they’ve actually made this into a nice handling car compared to the older ones.” What I noticed was the power. On a long, open stretch in the Port Perry area where Chevrolet introduced the new Malibu, passing a line of two cars and a box truck was easy. Because it was turbo, the engine sound is more muffled than a naturally aspirated unit. During the passing manoeuvre, engine noise was far away. When the Malibu was introduced in 2013, GM Canada called it the quietest Chevrolet that had ever been built up to that time. Coming back to GM Canada headquarters in Oshawa, I was in a 1LT model, which Chevrolet feels will account for 45 per cent of sales. I was interested in the start/ stop which I experienced quite a bit in downtown Oshawa where it worked as promised, shutting off silently but with a sound of the heavy duty starter being very present at re-start. While Canadians love their compacts and CUVs the midsize segment is still one of the most hotly contested. The 2014 Malibu has all the chops needed to be a player, and by listening to consumers, Chevrolet is on the right road.

Confessions of a Curber I guess you could say I was addicted. Only my drug of choice wasn’t coke or meth. No - it was the thrill of getting away with it all. And the easy cash, of course. Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. There’s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet – I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through carproof.com, or the province (bcregistryservices. gov.bc.ca). As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, what’s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didn’t make me do the transfer – so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didn’t even know my name.

*Bridging – A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

“The buyer smelled a bargain. He thought I was the fool!”

The future has arrived — the green car is here. And you might be surprised to know that it looks, feels, and drives much like the vehicle in your garage. Actually, there are some differences: It’s likely to perform even better than what you have now. On top of that, it’s much healthier for the environment. The Green Living Show, which runs April 25 to April 27 at Toronto’s Direct Energy Centre, will give consumers a great opportunity to see what the excitement is all about. It features an expanded automotive display, in partnership with Plug’n Drive Ontario that will not only showcase the most innovative vehicles, products and services related to the greening of transportation and mobility in Canada, but also put you squarely in the driver’s seat. Show visitors will be able to test drive some of the coolest, cleanest rides on the market today, from Ford, Nissan and Mitsubishi.

2014 Canadian Green Car Award

On opening day, April 25, all eyes will be on the winner of the 2014 Canadian Green Car Award. It’s to be chosen from a field of 16 vehicles, spanning everything from a battery-powered compact to a family-friendly SUV. The winner will join last year’s inaugural champion, the Ford Fusion Hybrid, in the ranks of the greenest of the green. The competing models were divided into five categories — battery-electric or fuel cell, plug-in hybrid, conventional hybrid, efficient gasoline or diesel internal combustion, and efficient family hauler with at least three rows of seats. Chevrolet will show off its strongest lineup of vehicles in the brand’s history at this week’s New York Auto Show. The brand will also introduce

2015 Fit designed to top subcompact class and 114 lb/ft of torque, with an EPA fuel-economy rating of 33/41/36 (U.S. city/highway/combined) for the LX with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). With class-leading interior space and versatility courtesy of its center-mounted fuel tank and Honda’s Magic Seat, the Fit epitomizes smart functionality with spacious and comfortable seating for five and the ability to carry voluminous cargo, including long and tall items. The larger interior features a remarkable 4.9 cubic feet increase in passenger volume

Ram is best-in-class Ram Truck brand’s quest to build the best pickups continues. Ram claims the 1500 EcoDiesel delivers the industry’s best fuel economy at 28 MPG. Ram’s Heavy Duty truck line owns best-inclass towing at 30,000 pounds and best-in-class gross-combined weight rating (GCWR) at 37,600 pounds, but there’s an additional title Ram Truck has always held — the most off-road-capable pickup. Built to master the most rigorous off-road trails, the 2014 Ram Power Wagon is based on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4x4 Crew Cab, but features a number of off-road-specific engineering enhancements, including a unique suspension with more than two inches of lift, locking differentials and a 12,000-pound winch to give the truck a significant advantage over all production pickups. The 2014 Ram Power Wagon engineering story begins with a new frame, suspension and top-of-segment off-road technology and equipment complemented by the new, best-in-class 410 horsepower, 6.4-litre Hemi V8 engine with 410 hp and a peak torque rating of 429 lb/ft. The engine calibration is unique to Power Wagon in order to enhance its off-road maneuverability and finesse. When driving in four-wheel-drive low, the throttle response softens and the idle speed increases by 100 rpm (from 650 to 750 rpm) — providing added control when ascending and descending off-road obstacles at slow speeds. The new 6.4-litre Hemi is offered with the 66RFE six-speed automatic transmission and connects to a part-time, manual-engagement Borg Warner BW 44-47 transfer case. The Power Wagon’s axles are the pinnacle of durability. Built by American Axle Manufacturing, the units measure 9.25 inches in the front and 11.5 inches in the rear (increase from 10.5 inches), delivering power via a 4.10:1 ring and pinion ratio. Robust rear axle shafts are upgraded to 38 mm, providing rotating force directly to the 33-inch tire/wheel combination. Both axles include electronic locking differentials driven by electro-magnetic actuators. New for 2014, all Ram Heavy Duty trucks incorporate a segment-exclusive front axle disconnect system. When conditions warrant, front drivetrain components are disconnected to reduce parasitic loss and improve overall efficiency.

and a 4.8-inch increase in rear seat leg room compared to the previous Fit, all the more remarkable considering its even more compact exterior footprint, including a 1.6-inch decrease in overall length. The 2015 Fit also raises the bar on acceleration fun and fuel efficiency with major advances to its powertrain. A new Earth Dreams Technology engine significantly increases power, torque and throttle response with support from two newly developed transmissions — a six-speed manual and all-new CVT with G-Shift Control.
