project to revitalize the Nisutlin Bay Bridge in Teslin has been cancelled. “Yukon government received sufficient concern from the community of Teslin that we cancelled the Nisutlin Bay Bridge project at this time,” said Kendra Black, spokesperson for Highways and Public Works. The plan was to replace the steel grating deck with concrete, construct a separated bike lane and walkway. She wouldn’t say what the nature of the concerns were. Forty individuals had signed up to receive updates on the tender for the project, which had been set to close April 23, said Black, but not all of them were contractors. All of those interested parties were informed of the cancelation on Friday, she said. A mandatory site visit for bidding contractors, scheduled for Monday, was also cancelled. The $14.5 million project would have been paid for jointly by the federal and territorial governments. But because of the cancellation, the $6.75 million in federal money earmarked for the project will no longer be available to it. That’s because projects funded under the Building Canada Fund must be completed by March

31, 2016. In order to meet that deadline, the contract for the twoyear bridge rehabilitation project would have had to be awarded in the next few weeks, said Black. Public Works will try and find other projects that meet the criteria for using that money, she said. And it will work to secure funding for the Nisutlin Bay Bridge project in the next iteration of the federal infrastructure funding. “Hopefully we’ll be able to access that funding,” said Black. Frank Thomas, CAO for the Village of Teslin, also wouldn’t get into specifics of the community’s concerns with the project. But the bridge is very important to the community, and impacts of any work on it could be significant, he said. “Our bridge in the community is a fairly active place. We have a marina there. A lot of people use it. It’s not like a bridge on the Yukon River or something where mostly people just use it to cross the river. It’s right

in our community.” The community had lots of questions about the project, and there wasn’t enough time for all of those questions to be answered, he said. “There wasn’t enough leadtime on this thing, and the government maybe didn’t realize what impacts it might impose on the community,” said Thomas. “It’s probably, at the end of the day, a good thing,” he said, because now there is more time to make sure that the project reflects the needs of the community. It will “create a better project at the end if we do it jointly,” said Thomas. “The tender was stopped, but it doesn’t mean the job is not going to continue in the future. They still have to fix the bridge. “The bridge ain’t going to fall apart. It’s been there for a long time, so I imagine it’ll hang out for a few more years yet.” Contact Jacqueline Ronson at jronson@yukon-news.com

Dawson sewage plant problems persist

17 years on Main Street!

CloSed on good friday

Mike Thomas/Yukon News

Plans to improve the Nisutlin Bay Bridge in Teslin have been cancelled.

he Dawson wastewater treatment plant is still failing water quality tests. The facility has been plagued with problems since in opened in 2012. Operations of the plant had been scheduled to be handed over to the City of Dawson in 2013, but still have not been because of the outstanding problems. Samples taken on March 25 failed water quality tests, according to a report filed with the town in April. This is particularly concerning because the load on the system will increase dramatically as tourists begin to show up in a month or two. “The toxicity test passed although one of the fish died which is unusual for March when our wastewater is normally dilute,” according to the report. “Clearly the plant is not compliant with our water licence even in March. It should prove interesting to see what the results will look like in May and June. There are many construction deficiencies left outstanding such as valving problems, concrete liner failure and ventilation.

“It is possible that both the territorial and federal regulatory authorities will become more aggressive now that the plant has proven to be non-compliant with our water licence in both winter and summer.” Klondike MLA and Liberal Leader Sandy Silver asked about the outstanding problems in the legislature Monday. He wanted to know if the Yukon government would help out if operations costs turn out to be higher than projections suggest. “Earlier this year, officials from the minister’s department put the operating cost to run this new facility at $340,000. People I’ve spoken to in Dawson think that this number might be a little bit unrealistic and don’t believe that the amount will even cover the fuel bill, let alone operations of the facility.” Dawson Mayor Wayne Potoroka confirmed in an email that the town expects the facility to cost $872,440 annually in operating costs. Heat and electricity costs alone are expected to run $365,000. Community Services Minister Brad Cathers confirmed that the Yukon government will continue

to work with Dawson to ensure that the facility is affordable. “If the costs of operating the facility turn out to be significantly higher than anticipated, we have a commitment to work with the City of Dawson around that financial sustainability provision,” he said in the legislature Monday.

Correction A story in Friday’s edition incorrectly described Health Canada’s new prescription marijuana laws. Under the new laws, patients holding a prescription to possess marijuana must purchase their pot from a federally-licensed producer. Users with a license to grow their own marijuana may continue to do so on an interim basis under a court injuction. Prescription holders may not purchase marijuana from an unlicensed source without breaking the law themselves. The News regrets any confusion this error may have caused.

City considers keys to the city policy Jesse Winter News Reporter

I

t’s a tradition that harkens back to the knights of old, when cities and castles were walled and guarded against armies of marauding enemies. It’s the keys to the city, a token granted that allowed someone to come and go as they pleased through the locked city gates, proof that they were trusted by residents. Now the City of Whitehorse wants the ability to bestow a similar ceremonial honour of its own.

Investigation underway into worker’s death at Home Hardware Occupational health and safety officials are investigating after a worker at Home Hardware died last week. Gary Martin was found on the ground in a back room of the Whitehorse store Thursday morning. The 55-year-old was medevaced to Vancouver but died the next day. Health and safety spokesperson Richard Mostyn said there were no witnesses to what happened. A colleague heard a noise and went to investigate, and found Martin unconscious. “We don’t know specifically what happened. There was a ladder at the site,” Mostyn said.

City administration presented the keys to the city policy to city council on Monday night. Robert Fendrick, director of corporate services, explained the idea is to give the city a means of recognizing accomplishments of “national or international significance.” Potential recipients could include artists, athletes, visiting heads of state and people who have made “significant contributions that bring positive recognition to Whitehorse,” according to the draft policy. Any Whitehorse citizen could Occupational health and safety is warning Yukoners to identify the hazards involved with any job and make sure the proper tools, training and procedures are being used. “This tragedy has affected many people in our community and our hearts go out to the man’s family and friends,” Mostyn said. This is the third workplace fatality in the Yukon this year. Arnold Johnson died while corralling wild horses near Kusawa Lake in January. In February, a truck driver died in a collision on the Alaska Highway north of Watson Lake. Since the trucking industry is a job that crosses through multiple jurisdictions, that investigation is being handled by Employment and Social Development Canada. (Ashley Joannou)

recommend someone be given the keys. Coun. Dave Stockdale raised a question about the language regarding eligibility, wondering whether restricting key recipients to people with national or international recognition might preclude some very worthy, if very local, Whitehorse volunteers and community members. “I know we have a volunteer recognition process in the city,” Stockdale said, “but it seems to me that if somebody locally does something that is way over and above volun-

Well, it won’t be just

The options include a plaque with a mounted key, a special presentation key with an inscription, a framed letter from the mayor, proclamations read at city council or even just a stack of documents including the administrative reports, recommendation documents and subsequent resolution.

Patterson said staff are still investigating the damage. It could be several days before the damaged unit is back in service. In the meantime, Patterson said, there is enough power coming from other available units in Whitehorse, Mayo and Aishihik. (Ashley Joannou)

According to police the suspects approached the bartender and demanded money. The bartender was pushed to the ground and the suspects grabbed a handful of cash from the register before fleeing. Police recovered what they believe to be the ATV helmet worn by one of the robbers. Investigators asked the public to help identify its owner. Tyler Benson, 23, and Adam Cormack, 22 are each charged with robbery and disguise with intent to commit a criminal offence. The pair appeared in court Monday afternoon. (Ashley Joannou)

the collapse of the old society as a way of examining what went wrong, with the aim of helping the hill run more smoothly in the future. The old society has since been replaced by the Friends of Sima, which ran a successful fundraising drive to save the hill this fall, and broke the all-time record for season passes. According to the report, things started to go wrong for the society during the 2012/13 year. The society went into that year expecting to earn $227,000 in income and spend only $58,000 on capital expenditures. Instead, the hill earned only $55,000 that year, and capital expenditures soared to $287,000. That same year, operating expenditures exceeded revenues plus sponsorship and donations by $730,000. In all, the board’s deficit that year rose from a planned $245,000 to an actual $961,000 by year’s end. By the fall of 2012, cash-flow was a serious problem for the society, with bills going unpaid. The 2012/13 summer was the first year the Wildplay Adventure Park was open at the hill, which the report attributes a large portion of the increased expenses to, especially increased staffing costs. Opening the park proved to be an unsuccessful venture, and soon the society owed almost $400,000 to the franchise. Last spring, the society asked the city for $800,000 to cover its debts

and help provide funding for future operations. That request came after $3 million in city money – most of it transferred from the federal government – had been given over the previous two years. After the city refused to continue funding the hill, the society began the process of dissolving, and Friends of Sima formed in an effort to save the hill and keep it open this winter. Craig Hougen, the president of the now-defunct GNSS, said the society is pleased to see the report out, and not surprised by any of its findings. “We’re not surprised that they didn’t find any wrongdoing. Obviously we struggled with the reporting,” he said. Hougen said there were funding problems with the Wildplay park that contributed to it opening late its first summer, and failing to earn the income expected of it. “We substantially missed the revenue targets for Wildplay,” Hougen said, explaining the shortfall in the 2012/13 summer. Right now, the old society is in the final stages of settling its debts and dissolving. An outstanding $13,000 in unpaid employee wages has been cleared, Hougen said, and his group is working “daily” with the Friends of Sima to officially transfer all the ski hill’s assets to the new society. That will happen in the coming weeks, now that the Friends have wrapped up their first season and will have a chance to look at their own

Currently, an employee can be fired without cause or notice at any point during the first six months on the job. “We feel it is important because the Yukon is woefully behind the rest of the country,” said NDP MLA Jan Stick in May of last year. “We’ve looked across the country to see what other jurisdictions are doing, and we are at the bottom. Some are as little as 30 days; most are three months’ probationary period.” Only Yukon, New Brunswick and P.E.I. have a probationary period of six months. In Manitoba, it is 30 days.

season-end financials. “Until you do the books, you never really know,” Hougen said. Friends of Sima president Laurie Henderson said she could not comment on the report because it is not related to the new society’s financial situation. She did say that the old society has been very helpful through the transition to the new society, and provided all the financial information they had to help the Friends run the hill more sustainably. “We have been meticulous in terms of the financial accounts. GNSS has been quite willing to provide what they had. “We’ve taken the view that by starting a new society, starting our own accounts, and working up, there is some value in a comparison, but for us, the concern has been how we got money and how we spent money and managing the expenditures for this year,” she said. Henderson said the new society’s budgeting for next season will take place after they’ve been able to review their own spending for the past season and assess how it went. Formal financials should be available later this spring, but anecdotally she said the season has been great. “It’s been fantastic,” Henderson said. “We couldn’t have asked for anything better with the weather and the snow. It’s been a great season.” Contact Jesse Winter at jessew@yukon-news.com

sultation on employment standards laws. Fifty-seven percent of those supported changing the probation period to three months. But in the legislature last week, Community Services Minister Brad Cathers said the results weren’t “clear cut” enough to merit changing the law. “It is quite clear that there was very limited participation and feedback on that specific question from both employers and employees,” he said Monday. But there were actually more responses to that question than to any other on the survey. Other questions had to do with making more unpaid leave available to parents of a child who is critically ill or has disappeared or died as a result of a crime. The government followed through on that consultation in legislative amendments that passed third reading Monday. It was the same consultation that led to those changes, said Stick in an interview Tuesday. “You asked the question, you got the answer, why didn’t you follow through?” (Jacqueline Ronson)

he question of Francophone language rights in Canada is important enough that the Supreme Court of Canada should hear more about it. That’s according to the lawyer representing the territory’s French school board in a legal fight with the Department of Education. Roger Lepage filed documents this week asking the country’s top court to hear the case between la Commission scolaire francophone du Yukon and the Yukon government. Earlier this year the Yukon Court of Appeal sent the case back for a new trial in part because of a possible appearance of bias by the original judge, Vital Ouellette. Instead of agreeing to go

back to square one, the school board has asked the Supreme Court of Canada to hear the case. The country’s Supreme Court Act says that a case is chosen by the court “by reason of its public importance.” Lepage said there are at least two areas where this case qualifies as nationally important. He said the ruling by the appeal court, that there was a reasonable apprehension of bias by Ouellette, is important. The appeals court ruled that Ouellette’s conduct during the trial and his status as a governor of the Fondation franco-albertaine in Alberta, was enough to raise concerns. The test for bias is a high standard, but the Yukon case lowers that bar, Lepage said. “We’re saying that the Supreme Court of Canada should look at that because it has not

only an impact on that judge, it has an impact on all Canadian judges.” Aside from the question of bias, Lepage said concerns around access also deserve the attention of the court. Section 23 is the portion of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms that deals with language rights. “There’s no doubt that section 23(2) allows access to French language schools. The government could control that access, or the francophone school boards,” Lepage said. He will be arguing that control should belong to the school board. “It’s a question of national importance because it impacts not only on the Yukon, it impacts every jurisdiction.” The government has 30 days to reply to the school board’s application.

Lepage acknowledges that not every case that applies to the Supreme Court of Canada is heard. He says he’s as confident as you can be that this case will be heard. “I’m satisfied that these two questions raise issues of national importance. As soon a you’re raising a constitutional issue, and especially a language rights issue, which goes to the very foundation of Canada, usually the Supreme Court of Canada is prepared to hear it.” In 2012 the Supreme Court of Canada only granted a hearing to about 12 per cent of the cases that applied. According to the most recently available statistics, it takes on average 4.4 months for the court to decide if it will hear a case. Contact Ashley Joannou at ashleyj@yukon-news.com

fter more than two years of battling and multiple court appearances, a Yukon Supreme Court Justice put an end to the fight between a condo board and a local developer. On Friday afternoon Justice Ron Veale had the final word on what will happen to the shell of an apartment building that stands at Falcon Ridge. The judge approved a plan, presented by developer Brian Little, with a series of four-plexes to be built on the spot the developer had hoped would hold an apartment building. Instead of a three-storey apartment block, the development will The new Yukon home of

now be only two stories high, with a total of 25 homes. The land will hold three connected four-plexes, three standalone four-plexes and one single-family home. The lower roofline will better blend in with the character of the neighbourhood, the developer argued. That’s a significant change from what he had originally wanted.

In 2012 the condo board took the developer to court over the planned apartment building. Veale granted an injunction halting that construction after ruling the developer did not get the appropriate consent. At the time he called the case “a cautionary tale for condo developers, condo corporations and condo owners.” Since then the half-built structure has sat empty.

The condo board argued against the proposed plan of attached four-plexes. But on Friday Veale said the new proposal did meet all the requirements outlined in the 2005 site plan for the property. In this case there is not a need for approval or consent from the condo board, he said. On Friday Veale also gave the developer a deadline to finish work on other areas of the property. The Falcon Ridge neighbourhood includes older homes on one half and newer homes on the other. The judge ordered that work on parking spaces, landscaping and drainage for the newer homes begin by May 30 and be completed in four months. It will now be up to the city of Whitehorse to approve all the required permits before construction on the new homes can begin. Contact Ashley Joannou at ashleyj@yukon-news.com

Former federal election foes meet again Ashley Joannou News Reporter

L

arry Bagnell is remaining mum on his plans for the next federal election. But, if you didn’t know any better, an event this past weekend looked a lot like a campaign stop. Bagnell was one of five panelists on Saturday brought together by the Victoria Faulkner Women’s centre to discuss federal crime policy. It was the end of a week’s worth of activities to mark National Victims of Crime Awareness Week. The panel included two of the people Bagnell, the Yukon’s former Liberal MP, faced in the last federal election: current MP Ryan Leef, and Green Party member and Whitehorse city councillor John Streicker. It also had territorial NDP Justice critic Lois Moorcroft and Chantal Genier with the Council of Yukon First Nation’s justice program. The group touched on topics including the federal government’s proposed victims’ bill of rights. Bagnell credited the bill with doing a lot to help victims but said it was really only a good first step. “But far more important is to reduce the victimization, to give

When it came to the issue of restorative justice, Bagnell criticized “one particular party.” “Because they didn’t believe in restorative justice, they limited judges authority so they couldn’t give the widest range of options, they limited the times when restorative justice could be used.

COMMENTARY Why we need a new continuing care facility Doug Graham

Y

our government has set aside $6.9 million in the 2014-15 territorial budget for design work on a new continuing care facility for Yukoners. As minister of health and social services, I would like to provide you with the facts about our planned facility and the reasons why continuing care is a priority for this government. Like all other areas of Canada, Yukon has a growing population of seniors. It is critical that planning is done now to ensure that services are in place to meet this growing demand. Other related health care issues include dementia, respite needs, mental health diagnosis and hospice palliative care. Our overall approach is to support seniors in living in their homes as long as possible, while also ensuring we have facilities in place to provide more complex care when needed, at a cost that we can afford. Some things for you to consider: • Yukon has the highest ratio of individuals over 85 who are living alone. • National trends show that the greatest growth in the percentage of seniors in the population will be in the North. • Across Canada there is a rapidly growing need for dementia care. Yukon currently has one of the most comprehensive bundles of no cost home care programming in Canada, offering home support, personal care and professional care services (through nursing, therapies and social workers). Although home care is very effective in keeping people safely in their own homes longer, both in Whitehorse and in rural Yukon communities, it is not a

substitute for continuing care for those who require a significant level of support or specialized services. Our data shows that 40 per cent of home care clients are at high risk for institutionalization, and 14 per cent have no local caregiver at all. When communities are not able to support individuals, and when continuing care beds are not available, people often end up in hospital. This is a problem for several reasons: • They don’t receive the specialized care and services that they require (this is especially an issue for dementia care clients). • Hospital beds are extremely expensive, and therefore this is not a sustainable practice. • Beds filled with clients waiting for continuing care have an impact on the operation of a hospital. For example, those beds will not be available for elective surgeries. The waitlist for long term care in Yukon currently has 41 clients, and the list grows each month. The average wait is four months, with a range of anywhere from one to 15 months. Last year, a needs analysis was completed which identified significant need for additional bed capacity in continuing care over the next 20 years. Conservative estimates project the need by 2021, based on current utilization patterns, will be 320 to 380 beds, and by 2035, it will have grown to 430 to 550 beds. This is why we are proceeding with planning a new facility to provide up to 150 beds in the early stages of the project, with infrastructure to support 300 beds in total, which will be added on in phases. We anticipate that design work will occur throughout 2014 and 2015, with construction from 2015 to 2017. Publisher

We want to ensure that Yukoners have timely access to the best, safest, most appropriate care possible. Planning for this new facility will ensure we can support the growing number of seniors who will require complex care or specialized dementia care. Ensuring there is a strong First Nations cultural component will be an integral part of the planning. The new facility will be designed to best practise standards of smaller congregate living units or neighbourhoods that are warm, home-like and easy for residents to navigate and socialize in. We are reviewing best practices and best industry intelligence to ensure we meet clients’ needs. Since our announcement was made, there has been some public comment concerning centralization of continuing care in Whitehorse. The government considers it a priority to help ensure seniors can remain in their home communities as long as possible, which is why we have built new seniors’ residences in Haines Junction, Watson Lake, Teslin and Faro over the last few years, with plans to replace MacDonald Lodge in Reporters

Dawson City and funding allocated for a seniors’ residence in Mayo. However, when a community is no longer able to support an individual with complex, specialized care requirements, the advantage of a larger facility is that you can group individuals with similar care requirements and needs, as the staffing, programming and supports required are very different. To have specialized care in each and every Yukon community is not affordable, nor sustainable. Significant assessment and planning has gone into the government’s decision to proceed with this project. Long-term care is an issue that affects every Yukoner. It is important that we take steps now to ensure high

quality care in the future for the benefit of all Yukoners. If you have ever been faced with the challenge of caring for loved ones who are aging, or who have dementia or other long-term health issues, you will agree that Yukon has some of the best care available, thanks to our extraordinary staff and volunteers. Our goal is to continue to provide a continuum of services to meet care needs, from supports for aging in place, to a robust home care program, to continuing care beds, while ensuring our health care workers have the best facilities and programming to continue their fine work.

End the liquor monopoly by Graham Lang

SECOND THOUGHTS

I

t’s time that the Yukon government got out of the liquor business. That’s not because the individuals working at the liquor corporation aren’t doing a good job, but rather because we can use other levels of government and the marketplace to more efficiently achieve the goals of the monopoly. The Yukon government, through the liquor corporation, has enjoyed a monopoly on the sale of alcohol throughout the territory as long as I have been alive. The monopoly, by virtue of a lack of competition and the overhead connected to the Crown corporation, results in higher prices for alcohol throughout Yukon. This is before we include the artificial 15 per cent increase in prices at off-sales once the sole liquor store in Whitehorse closes. Further, the liquor corporation, an unelected body, is tasked with regulating the sale of alcohol, meaning that the issuance and enforcement of liquor licences is carried out by a body that is accountable only to the courts, rather than the democratically elected legislature. As citizens we should expect some return for the resulting higher prices and democraticdisconnect, meaning the monopoly should serve some public purpose. The purpose of the monopoly must be to reduce the harm associated with the use of alcohol throughout the terri-

tory. The question is, can the specific manner in which the liquor corporation pursues that policy be reproduced more efficiently (read cheaper) by the marketplace or other levels of government without sacrificing safety? If so, then I would say the monopoly must end. The liquor corp. currently engages in three broad activities connected to liquor: the direct sale of liquor, advertisement concerning safe use of liquor and the issuance and enforcement of third-party liquor licences. These activities are designed to, respectively, raise money for the Yukon government to deal with social harm stemming from liquor, provide information to the public to hopefully prevent future harm and to regulate sales of alcohol to achieve reduction in harm. I would suggest that the above three broad policy goals can be met without the liquor corp. by, firstly, privatizing liquor

or Old Crow have to come to the Yukon government, cap in hand, to request that their communities be dry communities? Further, why should Whitehorse care whether Dawson City wants to keep its bars open until 4 a.m. all summer? Leave these decisions to the citizens of the communities – it will lead to a more transparent system of liquor regulation. The municipalities will be able to raise funds through setting liquor licence fees. The Yukon government will still be in the regulation game when it comes to broad control of marketing and safety surrounding the sale of liquor, much like the control of cigarettes, but the day-to-day regulation and inspection of establishments can be left to the municipalities. As a bonus, the downloading of regulation to the municipalities will also harness further economic efficiencies in that

The wind blows hard in winter’s cold I would like to thank Chuck Tobin of the Star and Jacqueline Ronson of the Yukon News for their coverage of the Yukon Energy LNG hearing last week. This is an important issue for all Yukoners and the good newspaper coverage was much appreciated. In one article the Chuck recalls the cold windless day of January 29, 2006 when one of the power cables at the Aishihik power plant failed and the entire grid went down and we relied on lot of back-up diesel power for two days, and more than normal for a few months afterwards until permanent repairs were completed. Those of us who were here at the time would recall the event too. What is interesting to note about this situation is this, although it generally is not windy in Whitehorse when the weather is very cold, the wind generally is blowing at the higher altitudes like Haeckel Hill, or Mt. Sumanik, or Ferry Hill (Tehcho)

and instituting a liquor tax, secondly, by tasking the alcohol and drug services branch (which already exists) with the advertisement and promotion side of prevention and, thirdly, by downloading the day-to-day regulation and licensing of establishments to the municipalities. First, by privatizing sale and instituting a liquor tax we can raise the same amount of revenue as today less the overhead of the liquor corp. With or without the monopoly, people will purchase alcohol. That means that, depending on where the tax rate is set, we can easily determine the rate required to raise an appropriate amount to offset the profits lost from the wind-up of the liquor corp. Secondly, by downloading responsibility of regulation and issuance of liquor licences to the municipalities we democratize the process, leaving decisions on liquor to the affected communities. Why should Pelly Crossing

in the cold of winter more often than not. Haeckel Hill has two test wind turbines now and Mt. Sumanik and Ferry Hill could have wind farms built on them. From January 29 to 31, 2006 when it was cold and we had the power emergency with the Aishihik power plant shut down, the wind was blowing steadily up there according to Environment Canada’s weather balloon data. During this critical period the wind speed at the altitude of Haeckel Hill and Mt. Sumanik ranged from 8.7 to 12 meters per second (m/s). This means that a 20-megawatt wind farm would have been producing from 8 to 19 MW (based on Enercon E82 2MW wind turbines) during this crisis period. Just imagine how much diesel that would have saved us!

Analyzing the wind speeds from Environment Canada’s weather balloon data for the 13-year period from 2000 to 2012 yields the following interesting characteristics about a 20 MW wind farm should there have been one there: Annual average output 5.6 MW (wind about 7.2 m/s); When -30 C or colder in Whitehorse, average output 6.2 MW (7.5 m/s); October to May average output 7.1 MW (7.9 m/s); December to March average output 8.6 MW (8.5 m/s); and June through August average output 2.5 MW (5.3 m/s). It is true that some of this will be lost due to icing and we cannot turn the wind on and off when as we want it or need it, but it can reliably provide a lot of energy in the winter each and every year when we most

need it. And it provides much less in summer when we hardly need it. Best of all, like water for hydro, the wind is free. Wind energy as part of our winter energy supply is cost effective and it can and should be part of our renewable energy supply. John Maissan Whitehorse

Don’t get hooked on fracked gas We recently attended the public input session of the Yukon Utilities Board regarding the liquefied natural gas proposal of Yukon Energy. We did not speak but had discussed the project for a number of months. The Ta’an Kwach’an Council recently passed a resolution to ban hydraulic fracking on their traditional

instead of having liquor inspectors and municipal bylaw officers both inspecting businesses in town, we would just have municipal bylaw officers. Remember that we currently have to transport Whitehorse-based liquor inspectors as far as Eagle Plains, which is not the most efficient use of resources. Having individuals who live in the area and who are already tasked with reviewing municipal bylaws inspecting liquor establishments makes more sense. Lastly, the download of all liquor related issues to alcohol and drug services will create a one-stop-shop for issues stemming from the use of alcohol in the territory. For example, both the liquor corp. and the alcohol and drug services are currently concerned with advertising to prevent harm stemming from use of alcohol. Would it not make more sense to have one government agency tasked with creating one global policy, rather than the current fragmented approach? Taking the above three steps will place licensing in the hands of the affected communities, centralize preventative steps with one government department and reduce prices of alcohol, all without reducing funds flowing to government or sacrificing safety. All that occurs is we remove the middleman from the equation, being the liquor corp. Government and the marketplace can engage in a bit of synergy here, with government doing what it does best, which is tax harmful products and provide services for those in need, while the marketplace doing what it does best, which is sell things. By letting each sector focus on its strength the system as a whole will certainly come out ahead. Graham Lang is a Whitehorse lawyer and long-time Yukoner.

territory. We honour them and their added decision not to invest in this Yukon Energy project. This project will inevitably lead to using “fracked” gas. This is the moral and ethical decision not to participate in this destructive industry. We, as parents, grandparents, and great grandparents of fourteen Kwanlin Citizens, ask the Kwanlin Dun Council to reconsider their involvement and potential investment in this project. At the most recent General Assembly of Kwanlin Dun, a resolution was passed that banned fracking on Kwanlin Dun traditional territory. If fracking is not good for us and the land, it is not good for any other people and their lands. We feel this is a poor investment of the financial inheritance of land claims beneficiaries and feeds a hypocrisy that is unwise and unhealthy for the well-being of future generations.

Olthuis makes the link explicitly in his April 1 application to the Supreme Court. “Regardless of whether that bill (C-23) is ultimately passed, this case offers the Court the opportunity to offer guidance to Parliament – and for that matter to the provincial legislatures and the wider public debate – about the constitutional issues engaged by voter ID legislation and how Charter-resistant legislation in this area might be crafted,” Olthuis writes in his leave application.

case, and federal lawyers have yet to submit their response to the application. Pierre Poilievre, the Conservative minister for democratic reform, was asked at a Senate committee last week whether Justice Department lawyers had checked that Bill C-23 was Charter-proof. “They have considered the legality of it and I am convinced the proposal is constitutionally compliant,” Poilievre responded, somewhat ambiguously. Before the Conservatives brought in voter ID rules in 2007, electors in Canada were not required to show identification when they voted, as long as their names appeared on the voters’ list. Following the 2008 federal election, three B.C. residents – backed by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association – challenged the new rules.

she did not have identification on hand showing her address. Her poor eyesight prevented her from identifying anyone who could vouch for her, and after an hour at the poll she returned home without voting. Rose Henry and Clyde Wright, both aboriginals who have spent time on the street, managed to vote in 2008 but argued their future qualifications were tenuous at best. The B.C. Supreme Court found that the voter ID rule enacted in 2007 “creates a new condition precedent to voting that did not exist previously.” Moreover, Madame Justice Lynn Smith found that the new rules did breach the Charter, which makes voting a right. But she ruled the breach was justifiable, a decision upheld in January by the B.C. Court of Appeal. Vouching, as it turns out, was one of the arguments federal lawyers put forward to prove the bill was “minimally impairing.” “Canada argues that this procedure provides yet greater accessibility and a ‘failsafe’ measure because it enables those without acceptable identification to cast a ballot if vouched for by another elector who is on the list at the same polling division and who does have acceptable identification,” Justice Smith wrote in her trial judgment. She also dismissed arguments that citizens should be allowed more identification options, such as the voter information cards mailed by Elections Canada, or that people should be allowed to vouch for multiple voters. “No doubt the list of documents authorized by the (chief electoral officer) could be further expanded or the vouching provisions could be made more flexible without completely destroying the effectiveness of the scheme,” wrote Justice Smith. “But the question is whether the scheme falls within a range of reasonable alternatives … I conclude, therefore, that Canada has established that the provisions are minimally impairing.” The trial judge also wrote what seems prescient now in the heat of a pitched parliamentary battle over the Fair Elections Act that has seen various Conservatives, including Poilievre, openly question the motives and integrity of the chief electoral officer and various elections experts. “I accept Canada’s submission that the harm of electoral fraud lies not only in its potential to impact the actual outcome of an election, but also in its capacity to undermine public confidence in the electoral process,” wrote Justice Smith.

a sensitive and emotional debate about how to balance the beliefs of a private Christian institution with the rights of gays and lesbians. Trinity Western says it will be the first Christian university in Canada to open a law school. The university’s president, Bob Kuhn, has accused critics of prejudice, telling the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society earlier this year that nothing in the school’s policies would prevent students from acting professionally and ethically when they become lawyers. Kuhn issued a statement Friday welcoming the law society’s vote in favour of the school. “It (the decision) says that there is room in a democratic country like Canada for a law school at a Christian university,” the statement said. At the law society meeting, Vancouver-based constitutional lawyer Joseph Arvay said the school was effectively putting up a sign at its doors telling gays and lesbians they are not

welcome. “What I fail to understand is how approving this law school in any way balances the rights of religious freedom and the rights of equality,” Arvay said “TWU is requiring LGBT students and faculty, as a condition of entry, to hide their sexual orientation and to re-enter the closet.” However, the majority of the speakers on Friday urged the law society to allow the school to proceed, even as some of them condemned the community covenant. Criminal lawyer David Crossin said the school’s decision to press ahead without revising its covenant to respond to concerns about the document was discriminatory, hurtful and hypocritical. Still, Crossin said the school’s behaviour isn’t enough to block the proposed law school. “In my view, however, the law and the public interest demand recognition of TWU’s right to conduct their affairs in this way,” Crossin said. “There is no evidence the ability of the teachers to properly teach will be compromised. There is no evidence the ability of the students to learn and

think will be improperly stunted. There is no evidence the graduates will be unable or unwilling to properly serve the public and the administration of justice.” Trinity Western says law societies in several provinces and territories, including Alberta, Saskatchewan, P.E.I., Newfoundland and Labrador, and Nunavut, have said they will allow students from Trinity Western to article in their provinces. Societies in Nova Scotia, Ontario, and New Brunswick are still debating the issue. The school has faced debate over its Bible-based morality policies before. In the late 1990s, the British Columbia College of Teachers blocked Trinity Western from granting teaching degrees over the very same issue. At the time, students were required to sign an agreement not to engage in activities that were “biblically condemned,” including “homosexual behaviour.” The case went to the Supreme Court of Canada, which overturned the college’s decision and said the British Columbia College of Teachers failed to offer evidence that Trinity Western graduates would go on to discriminate against students in the classroom.

Worms wiggle their way north ‘There is a belief that they arrived in North America with the first European settlers on boats and with soil and plants.’

www.123rf.com

Researchers from the University of Alberta are tracking the spread of non-native earthworm species, which can damage ecosystems. They’ve asked Yukoners to keep an eye out for worms.

Ashley Joannou News Reporter

T

iny Europeans are making their way to the North. They’re potentially dangerous. But not to worry, they move pretty slowly on their own. Researchers with the University of Alberta are studying the spread of non-native earthworms in the boreal forest of northern Alberta. They’re asking Yukoners to keep their eyes peeled as well. The crawlers have developed a reputation of being a gardener’s best friend. While that may be the case in some situations, the worms also have a potentially dark, dirty, squishy secret. While digging around in the dirt, earthworms mix up a forest’s leaf litter layer. But there are plants that depend on that layer to grow, explains researcher Erin Cameron with the Alberta Worm Invasion Project. Formerly earthworm-free hardwood forests of the Great Lakes Region have been invaded. One sensitive fern in the sugar maple forests in Minnesota has been

completely wiped out thanks to the worms. Other plants and ground-nesting birds have also seen a decline in areas where earthworms are found. Cameron is studying the effect on forests in Northern Alberta. There, damage is not as advanced as you might find south of the border. But research does show early changes. “The invasions in the boreal, these species have probably arrived much more recently,” she said. “So we do see changes in the leaf litter, they do consume the leaf litter in the same way.” Most earthworms are not native to Canada. Nearly all of them died out about 10,000 years ago during the last ice age. “There is a belief that they arrived in North America with the first European settlers on boats and with soil and plants,” Cameron said. The Yukon does have a few native species of worm, but most of the worms we find are members of the European invasion. If worms were left to their own

devices to wiggle their way across the country, we wouldn’t have to worry too much. On their own they can spread 10 to 20 metres a year. But the fact is that they’re not moving on their own. They’re hitching rides on car tires or in anglers’ tackle boxes. “We found that they were much more common along the road and at the boat launches. Which suggests that humans are introducing them,” Cameron said. While most of their work is Alberta-based, Cameron said the invasion project is interested in worms’ northern trajectory. Like many other places, exotic earthworms have been found in the Yukon, mainly near Whitehorse and other areas where humans are plentiful. Even when the Yukon’s winter dips into temperatures that make humans uncomfortable, some breeds of worms have a freeze tolerance that allows them to survive through the winter and thaw when the sun comes out. In the Yukon, the title of local

worm specialist would likely fall to Bruce Bennett, the co-ordinator for the Yukon Conservation Data Centre. He said it’s common to find non-native worms all around populated areas in the territory, including everywhere from Riverdale to Haines Junction to the islands in the Yukon River. But the Yukon has not officially labelled any of the species as invasive. “It would have to show that it causes either environmental or ecological harm. The presence of non-native worms is something to be aware of and to track, to see if they would qualify,” he said. Bennett says he’ll be following the University of Alberta study and is most interested in watching just how these worms are being moved around the country. “In places such as Whitehorse, if people are getting their ATVs muddy in Whitehorse and then taking them into the backcountry, is that a vector for moving these things around?” he asked. In the Yukon, he said, we tend

not to have that deep layer where the worms would do damage, Bennett said. “You tip over a tree and you’ve got about a quarter inch of soil… We don’t have deep soil,” he said. “The threat of these worms in the Yukon is probably much smaller, which is why I hesitate to call them invasive.” Still, having data available on worms and species movement is important in case it is ever needed, he said. If anyone finds a worm, especially if it’s found away from town, Bennett said he’s more than willing to help Yukoners identify the discovery. Very few people can identify a worm species at first glance, he said. The different breeds are only distinguishable by the little hairs, or cilia, found along their bodies. The University of Alberta researchers have created an online Worm Tracker App where the public can upload photos of worms along with information on where they were found.

The country’s overall emissions were down by less than one per cent between 2011 and 2012, the most recent year available, largely due to reductions in electricity and manufacturing. Partington said the drop was something of a surprise, given Environment Canada had predicted an uptick. But he said it’s too soon to say what direction the figure will go in the coming years. Energy sector emissions have seen the biggest jump since 1990 – roughly 70 per cent – due entirely to crude oil and oilsands expansion, the report says. That’s more than twice the growth rate of transportation-related greenhouse gases in the same period.

Scratching the surface on Yukon’s ancient treasures ‘We have such a rich but largely undiscovered heritage here.’ Jacqueline Ronson News Reporter

T

reasure hunters of the Yukon gathered at the Whitehorse Public Library over the weekend to check out each others’ collections and hopefully learn or a thing or two. The event was hosted by Long Ago Yukon, a “support group” for amateur archeologists and palaeontologists, says organizer Michael Dougherty. The group’s purpose is “deepening and widening the community of interest and concern on the preservation and protection of our heritage in the Yukon,” he said. “We have such a rich but largely undiscovered heritage here.” A professional archeologist and a professional palaeontologist were each on hand Saturday to help identify treasures. They also brought some treasures of their own. In one part of the room, archeologist Greg Hare demonstrated the use of an atlatl throwing dart – the preferred hunting tool of Yukon First Nations until about 1,100 years ago. It’s made from a long, thin stick with an arrowhead on one end and feathers on the other. The dart is launched using a special throwing board that acts like a lever, similar to a ball launcher a dog owner might use to throw tennis balls at the park. “It leaps off the end of the board, and they think the idea with the feathers is it actually goes slower than the front end, and it drags it down so you get greater distance,” said Hare. “So that’s the ballistic property of it. You can throw these like hundreds and hundreds of metres.” Accuracy at that range would be limited, however, said Hare. It would be more likely that it would have been used to hunt at distances of 15 to 20 metres, he said. The atlatl was the preferred hunting method in the Yukon for 8,000 years, said Hare. About 1,200 years ago a volcano erupted off the Alaskan coast, blanketing Yukon with ash and pushing people from the area. Within a generation new people moved into the area, and they brought with them the bow and arrow, which replaced the atlatl as weapon of choice. On the other side of the room, paleontologist Grant Zazula showed off some important pieces from Yukon’s impressive collection. His favourite is a broken piece of 700,000-year-old horse bone, not much bigger than a fist, uncovered at Thistle Creek near Dawson City, he said. “It probably is the most important specimen in our collection.”

Zazula published a paper earlier this year on the ancient horse, including DNA sequencing from the bone. “It’s the most ancient genetic sequence ever produced in the world,” said Zazula. “It’s pretty cool when little broken pieces of bone like this can lead to major scientific discoveries.” Amateur collector Mary Whitley brought a few treasures for those gathered to look at and share. One was a piece of baleen, maybe six inches long and one inch across, attached to a piece of string. When you swing it around fast enough it makes a whirring sound, and children and adults alike took turns for their chance to try and make it sing. “I bought it as a curiosity in Alaska probably in the 1980s, just because it’s neat,” said Whitley. It still has the original price tag – $8.80. The verdict’s still out on whether the trinket serves a purpose beyond entertainment, she said. “I don’t know what the purpose of the noise is. I have no idea. It’s fun.” Whitley also brought a tiny glass pitcher. With the light on it, the piece appears to have a purple hue. She’s not sure where it came from, but it probably had been passed on through her family, she said.

The experts also helped her identify a vertebra from a small whale, maybe a beluga. Whitley’s not quite sure where she found it – probably on a beach on the north coast of Yukon, she said. She hadn’t been sure if it came from a walrus or a whale, she said. Dougherty said he hopes events like these will spark more interest in Yukon’s old stuff. “The reality is that many of the key discoveries have been made by laypeople, amateurs. And so, the more amateurs that know what they’re looking at and looking for, the greater likelihood of being able to feed into our small professional core material … helping them identify the heritage resources available in our communities.” Given the success of Saturday’s artifact identification event, Long Ago Yukon will likely host similar events in the future, said Dougherty.

John Coupland, a professor of food science at Penn State University, noted that people concerned about azodicarbonamide focus in part on a carcinogen called urethane it creates in the baking process. But he said some level of urethane is already present in bread and that even the simple act of toasting can increase its levels. “Nobody worries about making toast,” Coupland said, adding that one could argue there’s some type of risk associated with any number of chemicals. Coupland also questioned how Subway’s removal of the ingredient would address the bigger question of whether its food is actually healthy. “Maybe there are some people who think Subway is healthy now

– that’s my concern,” he said. Subway, which has about 26,600 U.S. locations, had said soon after the petition surfaced in February that it was in the process of removing the ingredient. But the company wouldn’t provide details on a timeline, prompting some to say that the chain didn’t really have a plan to remove the ingredient. Pace stressed that the removal wasn’t a reaction to the petition. The company also provided a statement saying it had tested the “Azo-free bread” in four markets this past fall. The company did not immediately provide details on what changes it made to its bread to remove the ingredient.“ “We’re always trying to improve stuff,” Pace said. For instance, he noted that the chain has also reduced sodium levels over the years and removed of high-fructose corn syrup from its bread.

The blogger who created the Subway petition, Vani Hari of FoodBabe.com, has said she targeted Subway because of its image of serving healthy food. Hari said she was happy to hear about Subway’s move but that the chain still had other questionable ingredients, such as caramel coloring and yeast extract. “The entire point of the petition was that I wanted people to know that eating fresh is not really eating fresh,” she said. Regardless of the safety of various ingredients, more people are looking to stick to diets they feel are natural. The trend has prompted numerous food makers to adjust their recipes, even as they stand by the safety of their products. Among the companies that have made changes are PepsiCo Inc., which removed a chemical from Gatorade, and ConAgra, which simplified the ingredients in its Healthy Choice frozen meals.

fresh food. Subway isn’t the only company to make a change in response to consumer feedback. Here are some recent examples of recipe changes by major food makers: • Starbucks removed cochineal extract, a red dye made from crushed bugs, from its food and drinks after an online petition. • PepsiCo removed brominated vegetable oil from Gatorade. An online petition had noted the ingredient’s link to flame retardants. • Kraft Foods says it will reformulate select varieties of its macaroni and cheese next year to use natural colours. • Chick-fil-A has been removing artificial dyes and high-fructose corn syrup from dressings and sauces. The chain is also switching to chicken raised without antibiotics.

New snowboard champs crowned at Simapalooza Tom Patrick News Reporter

Y

ukon’s competitive snowboard season drew to a close with new open division champions. In fact, only one division saw a repeat winner from last year at the 2014 Yukon Snowboard Championships at Mount Sima over the weekend. The championship, which coincided with Mount Sima’s endof-season celebration, Simapalooza, had only one boarder crowned champion both days. Whitehorse’s Alexander Chisholme took first place in slopestyle on Saturday and first in snowboardcross on Sunday in open male. “It was a phenomenal weekend with so many great events,” said Chisholme. “It was a pretty good turnout, lots of fun. It was great to be back in my home town, see everyone, and be part of it this year.” It was Chisholme’s first time winning the open title at the championships and the first time he’s competed at it in a few years. The 22-year-old missed the last three while studying at school in Alberta. A pair of head injuries also limited his riding the last couple of seasons. “I didn’t get to do too much riding on my board until spring break because I was out of town,” said Chisholme. “Just to come back late in the season and have the conditions so optimal and have such an phenomenal park built by Tyler (Nichol) and have everything come together … it all paid off.” Chisholme edged out second place’s Tim Schirmer by a whisker both days. He finished the slopestyle competition with a combined score of 526 while Schirmer finished at 525. Chisholme was third in the rail portion of the slopestyle competition in the “upper park” before making up for it in the jump portion of the comp in the “lower park.” “The upper park was more of a rail focus and I’m not super strong at rails, but I’m good at the backside boardslide and I think I did a few nice ones,” said Chisholme. “On the one jump on the upper park I was able to do some really good switch tricks, which really helped my score.” Chisholme snagged the top spot with a backside rodeo 540 and a frontside 900 on the jumps. Nichol, who built the park at Sima this winter, placed third in open male slopestyle. Chisholme, who won a bronze at the Western Snowboardcross Series in 2012, won three races for the open male snowboardcross title on Sunday. “I took the lead right out of the gate and was able to stay on my

feet right to the finish line,” said Chisholme of the final. Schirmer took second, Nic MacDougall third and Nichol fourth in the open male out of nine riders. Sally Skinner finished her first Yukon championship with a title. Skinner, who moved to Whitehorse from Vancouver in December, took first in open female in slopestyle Saturday. The 26-year-old was the only rider listed in open female but was added in with the 15-16 female division and topped the group. “It was amazing,” said Skinner. “Every girl was stoked, excited to be there, and everyone was learning. It was fun.” “I just did some boardslides and some spins off the lower jumps, nothing too crazy,” she added. Skinner, who is a coach with Snowboard Yukon, finished ahead of 15-16 female winner Mackenzie Davy. Reanna Newsome placed third for females and Rachel McIntosh fourth. “Mackenzie is just thinking

about going on the team next year, so I think she’ll be on the team next year – she definitely should be,” said Skinner. “She got some amazing results.” Crystal Legoffe took first in open female snowboardcross on Sunday in front of MacIntosh, the only other entry. Schirmer, Newsome and McIntosh all represented Yukon in snowboarding at the Arctic Winter Games last month in Fairbanks, Alaska. Schirmer took three medals in juvenile male; Newsome won four medals, including a bronze overall, in juvenile female; Macintosh won two bronze in junior female. The only boarder to defend a division title from last year was Aaron Frotten, who won snowboardcross in the masters (30-andover) division for a second straight year. With the course all set, Snowboard Yukon also hosted a skicross event along side the snowboardcross event on Sunday. See full results from both days,

including the skicross, at www. yukon-news.com. “It’s amazing Snowboard Yukon gets to put on these events and has the funding to do it,” said Skinner. “I think it really changes kids’ lives to be able to participate in it.

“And Mary Binsted and Sue (Deforest) and those guys (Norm Curzon, Aaron Frotten) put so much time in, so I think they should get a lot of credit.” Contact Tom Patrick at tomp@yukon-news.com

The many benefits of yoga

I

n its 2012 Yoga in America study, Yoga Journal found that more than 20 million Americans practiced yoga, a nearly 30 per cent increase from 2008, when the magazine conducted its previous study. Among the millions of yoga practitioners surveyed, roughly 82 per cent were women. Many women turn to yoga because they recognize the value of strength training but are uncomfortable or nervous about lifting weights. The various poses performed in yoga can increase muscle strength and tone, providing similar benefits to weightlifting without forcing women to spend time among men in the weight room. But yoga does more than improve strength and muscle tone. The following are a few additional benefits of yoga, some of which may surprise even the most devoted of practitioners. • Improved flexibility: Some people are intimidated by yoga because they feel their bodies simply aren’t flexible enough to perform many of the poses typical of the average yoga class. While beginners may find the poses difficult, they are designed to safely stretch muscles.

Over time, the poses may release lactic acid that builds up in muscles, and that lactic acid often contributes to fatigue, pain, stiffness, and tension. This release leads to improved flexibility, and like many physical activities, yoga poses become easier to perform as practitioners’ bodies become more accustomed to them. • Increased range of motion: Joint pain does not discriminate based on age or gender. Yoga can improve lubrication in the joints, increasing one’s range of motion as a result. That makes it easier for some people to live with joint pain, which may even subside among practitioners who fully commit to yoga. • Improved posture: The stronger, more flexible body that yoga often creates also contributes to better posture. Many yoga poses rely on the deep abdominal muscles to help maintain each pose, and this strengthens the body’s core. A stronger core increases the likelihood that a person will stand straight and tall, an improvement in posture that many non-practitioners would enthusiastically

embrace. • Reduced stress the effect that yoga styles of yoga emp force the mind to f has a calming effec Other yoga styl that aim to clear th ute to stress.

T

he squash courts at Better Bodies Whitehorse were a lot more crowded than usual on Friday and Saturday. Squash Yukon decided to try something new and included doubles matches at the annual Kill Bill Team Tournament. It was the first time doubles have been included in a Squash Yukon tournament. “I think whoever played doubles enjoyed it,” said Squash Yukon instructor Khoon Chua. “Some were playing it for the first time in a tournament.” Though technically doubles, what took place at Better Bodies is often nicknamed “dingles,” as in doubles played on a singles-sized court. True squash doubles are played on larger size courts. International doubles are played on a wider court and American squash doubles are played on a wider and longer court with a harder ball. The Kill Bill tournament, which consists of teams winning as many points as they can in 25-minute timed matches, also included singles. Team Ice Fog, including Chua, Jen Muerer, Kyle Marchuk, Will Chetcuti, Micah Smith and Jada Smith-Kwok, took first with 1,760 points. Team Yukon Gold – Adam Sippel, Shirley Chua, Sam Penner, Benjamin Gelinas, Tony Radford and Kennedy Cairns – claimed second with 1,741. Team Chilkoot won 1,725 points for third. On board were Jim Gilpin, Stephen Bucklet, Dylan Letang, Matt Brown, Matt Johnson, Cathy MacDonald. “For the next tournament we’ll probably put some dingles in and there should be more players playing then,” added Khoon.

Strikers host Juneau for weekend matches Tom Patrick News Reporter

T

he Yukon Strikers and the Juneau Soccer Club wrapped up the indoor season with a weekend packed with soccer action. The two rep soccer clubs went head-to-head in a series of exhibition matches over the weekend at the Canada Games Centre in Whitehorse. The point wasn’t to see which was the stronger club, but to give the clubs some game time against other opponents, something both clubs need. “Since both clubs are in the same position, neither of us have enough kids to have a league in each age group, we’re looking for games to play,” said Juneau U14 girls coach John Newell. “That’s the whole point of this trade off. We come up here with as many teams as we can and play as many games as we can. We’re not too concerned with results, just good soccer. “In the summer time you’ll all come down and play us. We house each other, feed each other, try to keep the cost down for the parents, and try to keep it as fun as possible.” About 150 players took part in the exhibition matches as eight Yukon Strikers teams welcomed 11 Juneau squads. Scores from the matches were not recorded. “We would send all our girls teams to Juneau and they would send all their boys teams here and the next year it would alternate,” said Strikers coach Tony Gaw. “It lasted for quite a while and then for some reason it stopped. So last year we got it going again. “It’s excellent. The kids have lots of fun, they get games to play. We don’t get a lot of competition, so it’s really good.” Contact Tom Patrick at tomp@yukon-news.com

Kakuro

By The Mepham Group

Sudoku Like puzzles? Then you’ll love sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your sudoku savvy to the test! Complete the grid so each row, column and 3-by-3 box (in bold borders) contains every digit 1 to 9. For strategies on how to solve Sudoku, visit www.sudoku.org.uk.

WEDNESDAY CROSSWORD PUZZLE

To solve Kakuro, you must enter a number between 1 and 9 in the empty squares. The clues are the numbers in the white circles that give the sum of the solution numbers: above the line are across clues and below the line are down clues and below the line are down clues. Thus, a clue of 3 will produce a solution of 2 and 1 and a 5 will produce 4 and 1, or 2 and 3, but of course, which squares they go in will depend on the solution of a clue in the other direction. No difit can be repeated in a solution, so a 4 can only produce 1 and 3, never 2 and 2. © 2013 The Mepham Group. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency. All rights reserved.
