Horgan pitches province resource development By Tom Fletcher John Horgan put on steel-toed boots for his

first public appearance as B.C. NDP leader, to emphasize his support for the jobs created by

natural resource development. Speaking to reporters Friday after a tour of the Western Stevedoring port in North Vancouver, Horgan repeated his wait-andsee position on the

proposed expansion of the TransMountain oil pipeline from Alberta to Burnaby, and emphasized his support for liquefied natural gas development. He said the B.C. Liberal government

has placed too much emphasis on LNG exports, and it’s been “giving away” the province’s natural resources. “For the past 12 years the B.C. Liberals have seen a decrease in value from our resources coming back to the Crown, which means less financial resources for health care, for education and

OUTER SPACE Creating an outdoor oasis

Do you know the “Blueberry of the Prairie?” When it comes to berries, there are the tried and true favourites, such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, as well as the cool and trendy upand-comers. Looking at some of these new berries on the block, you can already tell they have the potential for being the next classic that will be around our gardens for a long time. One of these is the honeyberry. Also referred to as ‘Blueberry of the Prairie’, the honeyberry is an extremely hardy shrub that grows an abundance of large, flavourful berries. Their taste can be described as a blueberry with black raspberry notes.

The berries themselves are about ½ to ¾ of an inch or more in length and oblong in shape with a very thin skin. They can be eaten fresh right off the bush or used for just about anything that you would use blueberries for - you can make pastries, jams, juice, ice cream, candies and even wine. The history of today’s honeyberries begins in Russia and the varieties available to us here in the Kootenays were developed in Saskatchewan. These varieties are favoured for our climate because of their extreme hardiness, but more importantly for the size, taste and quantity of fruit. They also have improved disease

resistance; they are less prone to powdery mildew, and they don’t seem to be bothered by many insects or other diseases. Honeyberries can be grown just about anywhere. From all sorts of weather conditions, light conditions and soil conditions, this is probably one of the most adaptable plants out there. One of its claims to fame is that it will withstand winter temperatures as cold as -48 Celsius and the blossoms will withstand cold temperatures down to -6 Celsius, so there is less fear of damage from a late spring frost. Honeyberry plants range in mature height anywhere from four feet

to as much as eight feet and may get as much as three and a half feet wide. The best part about these plants, aside from the amazing fruit of course, is how well behaved they are. Honeyberry plants will not get out of control, they do not send out suckers and they have a nice naturally rounded shape. Watering is one thing that is extremely important in the formative years of the honeyberry. Birds can also be an issue. They love the fruit, so be sure to secure bird netting around your crop if you do not want to share these delicious berries. Honeyberry are usually the first fruit bearing bush to be

It’s Time To

All honeyberry plants require pollination from other honeyberries and there are a few varieties that are noted for their exceptional pollinating abilities, in fact one pol-

linizer will pollinate as many as eight plants. The honeyberry require two unrelated varieties to be in close proximity to each other for good pollination.

close more investment deals. Earlier this week a joint venture

agreement was signed by Shell, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and Korea Gas to develop an LNG export terminal

at Kitimat, with final investment decisions still up to two years away. Horgan said the broad

support for his leadership shows he has healed divisions over balancing economic growth with environ-

mental protection. He added he will meet this summer with former premier Mike Harcourt, who quit the party in April over its performance in the 2013 election. Asked this week about the acclamation of Horgan after veteran MLA Mike Farnworth dropped out of the leadership, Clark said having a vigorous debate over leadership is “a sign of a healthy party. “I wish him luck,” Clark said. “It’s easier to go through unopposed but I don’t know if it helps you.”

Ktunaxa to appeal Jumbo decision


Today the Ktunaxa Nation announced that it is appealing the April 3rd Supreme Court of British Columbia ruling about the proposed all season ski resort development in the Jumbo Glacier area known to the Ktunaxa as Qat’muk. To the dismay of the Ktunaxa, the court found that the resort would not cause significant interference with Ktunaxa spiritual beliefs and practices such that the Province needed to factor this interference into its approval of the resort. “The Supreme Court of Canada already determined in 2004 that Canada’s Aboriginal peoples’ rights must be recognized and respected,” said Kathryn Teneese, Ktunaxa Nation Council Chair. “As Ktunaxa, Qat’muk has always and will always be sacred, despite what any court tells us,” continued Teneese. “We will continue to fight the construction of the Jumbo Glacier Resort and appreciate the support we have received from the many non-Ktunaxa organizations, Kootenay residents and people far and wide who oppose this development.” Qat’muk is where the Grizzly Bear Spirit was born, goes to heal itself, and returns to the spirit world. For Ktunaxa, Grizzly Bear Spirit is a unique and indispensable source of collective as well as individual guidance, strength, and protection. Qat’muk’s spiritual importance is

Why Relay for Life is so important Submitted The HAGS are a group of ladies that have been gathering once or twice a year for our annual Christmas parties or backyard barbecues. These ‘gatherings’ have occurred for just over 25 years. We have had a few different HAGS come and go as the years have passed, but there are a core few that have been there for all the years. We decided one year that we were going to take part in the Relay for Life event, and this year marks our 10th consecutive Relay. Our relay team is usually the same ladies that have been there from the start. We have developed a great friendship and bond, and Relay day for us is a fun day, with good friends, for a great cause. We try our best to bring our spirit to the track each and every year, by cheering on others that are also there. We are all there for a cause, cancer affects everyone, be it a parent, spouse, child, friend or coworker, no one is untouched by Cancer. We know that what we do is a small piece in the big picture, but we are doing our best, as a team, to help eradicate cancer. Below you will find excerpts from some of the HAG Friends 4 Life team of ‘Why Relay’. My partner and I started relaying because I had lost both of my parents due to complications that started off with being diagnosed with cancer.

I am happy to announce she has just had her five year checkup and is now cancer free! Her outcome was a great one, some are not so fortunate, this is why I relay. I have seen first-hand the cancer clinic and what they do for their patients, it is amazing, but the amount of people I saw broke my heart. We need to stop cancer all together, raising money for research is a start. Oreen Walker I Relay because I know research is so important to prevention and survival of cancer. My Mother died at 50 because there was no screening mammography. I lived at 51 because there is. In the 70’s Filgrastim was developed.

Grant gives Friends of Children boost The Ministry of Health has provided Friends of Children with a one-time grant of $25,000 announced East Kootenay MLA Bill Bennett. This funding will help the society to continue the services it provides to Northern BC and East Kootenay families in need of assistance with out of province care. “Families from the East Kootenay are so

far from Vancouver, their children usually are not referred to the Vancouver Children’s Hospital,” said East Kootenay MLA Bill Bennett. “This makes it very challenging for many families who must go to Calgary to secure the medical care needed by their children. This grant will really help these families.” “It is always reassuring for parents to know A7 that if their child needs out-of-province care, the costs of that care will be covered,” said Health Minister Terry Lake. “For these families, accommodation and travel can add financial stress at an already stressful time, which is why organizations like Friends of Children help by providing B.C. families with both financial and emotional support.” The Ministry of Health’s primary concern is ensuring British Columbians receive the health care they need, wherever they are in

Resist The Urge To Water This Spring

Delay spring irrigation to promote healthy lawns. A mild spring drought promotes the growth of healthy root systems making your lawn more drought and disease tolerant. A healthy root system means your grass will stay greener for longer and require less water during hot, dry weather conditions.

Introducing Brittny Anderson As Water Smart Ambassador

Cranbrook is pleased to announce the addition of Brittny Anderson as the official Water Smart Ambassador for Cranbrook through into late August 2014. Anderson will spend the summer months working with residents to help them learn about water conservation and to help residents get the most out of the water they use each summer. “I am delighted to work with the community to reduce overall and more specifically peak water use, which occurs during the summer months,” Anderson says. “Frequently with a few slight changes water conservation can easily become second nature.” New this year will be the availability of free irrigation system assessments for both residential and commercial water customers. The public is encouraged to take advantage of the free assessments. Information about how to sign up for an assessment will be made available in late May.

With summer on its way, British Columbians are not the only ones getting ready for the warm weather. Bears are coming out of hibernation and other animals, such as cougars and coyotes, are becoming more active, increasing the chance of humanwildlife encounters. To prevent humanwildlife conflicts, British Columbians need to do their part by putting away food attractants including improperly stored garbage, bird seed and pet food. Access to these non-natural food sources is the main cause of human-wildlife conflicts in B.C. Bears emerging from hibernation are looking for food and will quickly learn how to get at convenient food sources. This leads to foodconditioned behaviour and increases potential conflicts with people. Whether it is a dirty barbecue or food scraps in composts, bears need to locate food only once to develop a feeding pattern and will continue to return to the area. Other animals, such as young cougars, roam wide in search of unoccupied territory, increasing their chances of wandering into residential communities, parks and campgrounds. Communities where attractants are managed properly have seen a decline in related human-wildlife conflicts and in the number of animals destroyed. The public is encouraged to report humanwildlife conflicts that threaten public safety or result in significant property damage by

Do not provide food to wildlife. Remain calm and never approach the animal. Always keep the ani-

mal in front of you (never turn your back) and back away slowly (never run). Keep children and pets close or pick them up. If possible, bring children and pets indoors. * If the animal appears interested in you or approaches: Make yourself look

as large as possible by waving your arms above your head. Make loud noises, shout at the animal in a loud, aggressive voice or bang pots and pans and throw objects like rocks and sticks. * Under the Wildlife Act, conservation officers can issue a $230 ticket or notice for a

court appearance to residents who do not secure attractants. Residents who leave out items that attract dangerous wildlife could also be issued a Dangerous Wildlife Protection Order. Failure to comply with an order carries a $575 fine. * Relocating wildlife is neither viable nor a

An opportunity to get up close and personal with area turtles will provide an opportunity for residents to talk with biologists from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations about Painted Turtles and other species that reside in and around, Elizabeth Lake. Cranbrook’s very own 2010 Citizen of the Year, and Rocky Mountain Naturalist member Art Gruenig, will be on-hand to show the turtle nesting grounds and, if timing is right, a few freshlyhatched turtles. He has been monitoring and protecting the nesting area for more than twenty years and takes extreme pride in trying to give the adults and hatchlings the very best opportunity to survive and thrive. “We are hoping to show the public some turtle hatchlings but Mother Nature might not be on our side this year,” said Gruenig. “In the 20 years I have been monitoring the turtle nesting grounds, I have never seen the water levels as high as this and, right now, about two-thirds of

This small Western Painted Turtle is looking forward to “Turtle Day”, at Elizabeth Lake on May 14. Submitted The Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP), with support from the Rocky Mountain Naturalists, is holding the first ever “Turtle Day” at Elizabeth Lake between 3 and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14. The public is invited drop in and learn more about the amazing Western Painted Turtle and, perhaps, get up close and personal with a turtle hatchling or two. “The Western Painted

Turtle has a fascinating life cycle and has evolved some extraordinary adaptations to survive in this area, especially given our long winters,” says FWCP-Columbia program manager, Trevor Oussoren. “The event is a great opportunity to share this information so that we can better understand the natural history of this Blue-listed, or vulnerable, species.” The FWCP in the Columbia region is a partnership between

BC Hydro, the Province of B.C., First Nations and the public to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by the construction of BC Hydro dams. Wetlands are among FWCP’s priority habitats for attention, and previous projects have helped improve turtle habitat near Revelstoke, Nelson, Baynes Lake, Argenta and at Elizabeth Lake. The event will feature information, displays, and spotting scopes, and

the nesting area is submerged. At this stage we do not know what impact this might have on the survival of the hatchlings.” If you are interested .

Tip of the Week:The Solar Eclipse on April 28th has passed its first quarter turn on May 6th and is now pushing on towards full. Even the first turn will produce measurable results if that seed event is destined to produce important changes in your life. If so, outer circumstances are pressuring you to assume a decisive action mode. Yet, the fuller measure of the eclipse will reveal itself at the time of the Full Moon on May 14th. Although the Moon does not harbour life, nor emit its own light, only reflecting that of the sun, it does contribute immensely to life on earth. It is presented as a fact by cosmologists that without the moon there would be no life on our planet. In this respect, it acts as something of a regulator at least. It is also a clear indication of the passage of time. And it literal and symbolic purpose and power goes far beyond these vital contributions as well. In one’s Natal chart, the Moon represents one’s mother or the parent who expressed the maternal and ideally the nurturing role. So, whatever sign your Natal Moon is in generally describes how you perceived and experienced your mother in your formative childhood years. This fact is easily measured and demonstrated. The exact degree, the location of the moon in your chart and the aspects it makes to other planets describes the deeper story. With Mother’s Day on Sunday May 11, we are drawn to pay special attention to mother. Generally, this implies our biological mother and doing so is natural, healthy and fulfilling. However, we can also direct our attention to mother in other ways. There is the principle of mother, of feminine, of nurturing and of all the miracle and mystery of the fact that life comes from life. By extension we can pay tribute as well to Mother Earth and Mother Nature. Given the plight of our times regarding the environment and the delicate ecological balance of nature, which sustains all life on the planet, we are wise to honour mother in all her expressions and we are reminded of some of her majesty as expressed in the waxing and waning cycle of the moon.

Groups partner to provide environmental education locally Submitted

In the magnificent setting of the Canadian Rockies at Nipika Mountain Resort, environmental educators gathered to participate in a National Environmental Education Leadership Clinic. Co-hosted by the Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network (CBEEN) and the Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication (EECOM), the Clinic offered educators the opportunity to team build, network and enhance leadership skills while developing action plans to address key goals they had set for themselves. Of the eight teams that were selected to participate, four local teams were

chosen. Team Rocky Mountain School District was represented by four teachers from across School District 6. Team Leader Natasha Burgess explained, “Our team has felt inspired and empowered by the beautiful, natural setting of Nipika eco-resort. We came to the clinic filled with many ideas and questions, open to innovative answers and new experiences. We truly enjoyed the opportunity to network with other environmental enthusiasts from across Western Canada. We worked together on many common goals and are very excited to take our learning outside!” Lisa Lehr brought together a team of early childhood educators from the East Kootenays. She remarked that “The

facility, lodging, catering and hospitality from CBEEN and EECOM created an awe-inspiring four days. Our team came to the clinic with a vision of filling the gaps of EE for children 0-6 years and their families. We went home with the guidance, answers and passion to make our vision a reality. Monica Nissen from Wildsight expressed that “Our Beyond Recycling Team came to the Leadership Clinic with the goal of developing the program and to devise a new approach to expand its reach and effectiveness. We benefited greatly from the structured sessions, the dedicated planning time, and the opportunities to receive words of wisdom and inspiration from others, and we came away with a solid plan. We are really excited about

Farmer’s Market looking towards new season


Get ready for another season of good local food at the Cranbrook Farmer’s Market. Spring is in the air and plans for a fresh new market season are well underway! The Cranbrook Farmer’s Market Society is entering the sixth year of operating the Farmer’s Market and market patrons can look forward to an extended market season in 2014. Starting on Saturday, May 31st, the Market will kick off with first of three spring markets being held at 1114 Baker Street, in downtown Cranbrook – the site where we have

hosted our popular Winter Market for the past 4 years. This location was chosen for the early season markets as a nod to the unpredictability of spring weather, and will give us the option of setting up outside in the parking lot on fine days, or moving indoors in case of inclement weather. Spring Market operating times and dates at this location will be 9 am until 1 pm on Saturdays May 31st, June 7th and June 14th. Our farm and gar-

den vendors have been working hard over the past few years to have early season produce available, so customers can look forward to spring greens and bedding plants, along with a great selection of baked goods, jams and preserves, honey, ready to eat food, and artisans offering everything from handmade body products to jewelry and more. Along with many of the ‘market favourite’ vendors, we are pleased to have new vendors joining us

Gregarious Gardener

10 Neat Things by Top Crop Garden, Farm & Pet


1. All about Berries! For many of us, one of the highlights in the garden is the berry patch. There is nothing like picking a ripe strawberry or raspberry right off the plant, still warm from the summer sun and bursting with flavour. Berries are also jammed full of nutrients, so no wonder there is a Berry Health Benefits Symposium. It is held every two years and the next event will be held in September 2015 in Madison, Wisconsin. 2. Early Birds. People usually think of strawberries as the first berries of the season, but there is a newcomer shaking up the berry patch: the honeyberry. This extremely winter-hardy plant originates in Russia and the blossoms can take temperatures down to -6 Celsius, so there is less fear of damage from a late spring frost and the large, blue berries are usually the first ones ready to harvest. 3. Berry Imposter? Strawberries make their appearance early on in the season and are a favourite with young and old. However, strawberries are not classified by botanists as a true berry. True berries have seeds inside; the strawberry has its dry, yellow "seeds" on the outside. 4. Fan Favourite. It is always hard to say which fruit is the ultimate favourite, but when it comes to berries, the blueberry is certain to be somewhere at the top. It isn’t hard to see why. They are delicious and versatile, widely available, fresh, frozen, dried, canned and as juice and are ranked first among the 40 most common fruits and vegetables for the amount of antioxidants they contain. Blueberry plants like their soil on the acidic side, so make sure to check the pH level in your garden and amend if necessary before planting. 5. Protein-Packed Superfruit. All fruits and vegetables contain healthy vitamins and minerals as well as trace amounts of protein. One berry, however, is considered a great source of vegetarian protein - one cup of berries can contain up to 12 grams of protein as well as plenty of other nutrients and antioxidants. Goji berries originate in the Himalayan mountain range, making them quite suitable for growing in our area. 6. There’s a New Berry in Town! Previously grown as wind-breakers or to improve a soil’s nitrogen levels, seaberries or sea-buckthorn is quickly gaining popularity for its nutritional content. The berries are a sunny, orange-yellow and their Vitamin C content is up to 15 times greater than oranges. They are full-flavoured and slightly tart, with notes of citrus, strawberry and peach. 7. Raspberry & Co. Whether it is ever-bearing or summer-bearing, raspberries are a great choice for any berry patch. Their vibrant red berries are both sweet and tart and can pop in desserts, salads, drinks and other summer favourites. Why not compliment the selection by adding some other, unique hybrids? There are golden and black raspberries as well as berries that closely resemble raspberries. Blackberries grow wild on the West Coast, but there are now varieties that will thrive in our growing zone as well. Salmonberries are native to the Pacific Northwest and more orange in colour. Marionberry is an indigenous blackberry and loganberries are hybrids from blackberries and red raspberries. 8. The Best of Two Worlds. If you love gooseberries and black currants, but only want one plant, the jostaberry is your answer. The fruit closely resembles a gooseberry, but is sweeter with the dark colouring of the black currant. The plant is also thornless. making harvesting a breeze. 9. With Love from Sweden. If you have ever been to a certain, popular Swedish furniture store, you have probably seen meatballs in cream sauce, served with a berry preserve on the side. Lingonberries are a staple in Scandinavian cooking and are close to cranberries in taste and use. They grow wild in forests throughout the Northern hemisphere and you can now cultivate them in your yard as well. 10. Wine and Dine. There are some varieties of grapes that we are able to grow right here in the Kootenays. Prairie Star, Beta and Concord, to name a few, are all very hardy and good producing grapes. A couple of years ago, we also saw the introduction of cold hardy wine grapes and first reports are overwhelmingly positive - Cheers!

A properly planned garden will maximize your gardening results Submitted

More and more food gardens are popping up in backyards around Kimberley and Cranbrook these days. If you’ve caught the gardening bug and need a little planning help to make the most of your backyard garden or if you want to start gardening but don’t know where to start, you’ll want to join in on the first of this year’s Edible Gardening Workshop Series. Planning your Garden, the first in a series of three workshops over the growing season, will teach you how to make the most of your food garden space with smart planning. Whether you are starting from scratch, rearranging your garden space, or just want to make the most of what you have, you’ll come away from the workshop with new ideas and inspired to grow. The workshop will cover several approaches for planning or rearranging a garden space, plus give hands-on demonstrations of techniques like lasagna gardening, companion planting, and no-dig potatoes. Wildsight Kimberley/ Cranbrook and the Cranbrook Food Action Committee are teaming up again this growing season to bring the Edible Gardening Workshop Series to both Kimberley and

Cranbrook. The planning workshop will run from 6:30-8:00pm on Tuesday, May 13th in Kimberley and Wednesday, May 14th in Cranbrook. “Start the gardening season off right and plan your edible garden so that you can eat the rewards all summer and fall!” said CFAC’s Shannon Duncan. Planning techniques explored will include creating a flexible garden map, permaculture design, companion planting, and options for software design. “There will be plenty of opportunity to get hands-on experience learning how to build lasagna garden beds and no-dig potato beds” added Wildsight’s Jessica Windle. The intent of this series of workshops is to make edible gardening in this area more accessible and enjoyable for all. It follows the growing season, offering timely advice throughout the growing season. “Yes, our growing climate comes with some challenges, but really, so does anywhere,” said Windle, “We still have a rich history of backyard gardening, including tomatoes and other hot weather lovers. Once you get started with growing your own food, it’s hard to stop!” “And once you bite into your own tomato, grab a handful of

Planning your Garden, first in an Edible Gardening Workshop series, will teach you how to get the best yield from your own plot of land. your own basil, or toss together a quick salad fresh from your own backyard,” added Duncan “you’ll taste the difference that your own fresh, local food makes!” The workshops will be hosted at each community’s Public Produce

Block party this weekend Submitted Kimberlites are invited to an outdoor block party in Townsite this weekend. From noon to 2pm on Saturday, May 10th in Triangle Park, Wildsight will host an outdoor potluck. Everyone, Townsite local or not, is invited to come to visit with neighbours and play in the park. Those who would like to join the potluck can bring potluck lunch items to share (and their own drinks, dishes and cutlery). While the block party is for everyone, Wildsight is celebrating a national day of action on climate change as part of the Defend our Climate, Defend our Communities campaign. On May 10th,

people are stepping up from coast-to-coast-tocoast to defend their communities and call for a just, safe and clean energy future. Last November, thousands rallied in over 130 communities across Canada, including in Cranbrook. Now, Canadians are rallying again to push their government to get on board with the global transition to replace fossil fuels with clean energy - and to keep the planet’s climate safe for future generations. “We in Canada have a choice – to help lead this new reality or to lose out” said Wildsight’s Ilona Hale, “but our federal government is trying to bet our economy on boomand-bust dirty energy

projects that pollute the water and climate while piping the profits out of our communities.” “We encourage everyone to walk or bike to the party if possible to keep it carbon neutral” added Hale. Wildsight will have climate change information and will be hosting a letter writing campaign to urge our government to defend our climate. Triangle Park is located at 5th Avenue and Cranbrook St in Townsite. More information is available by calling 250-427-4300.

Garden. “We’re really looking forward to building on the success from the workshops offered last year,” said Duncan “It’s a great opportunity for people to connect in the garden, and to learn more about our local community garden resources at

the same time.” Workshop registration is $10, with take-home reference materials provided. Work/trade options are available. Gardeners of all levels of experience are welcome, as are children. Registration is at

Alexa’s Team working to decrease alcohol related deaths in B.C.

Photo submitted

Alexa’s Team members from the south east region of BC honoured in Kelowna for keeping promise to family and reducing alcohol-related motor vehicle deaths by 52 per cent in B.C. The members of Alexa’s Team have delivered on their promise to the family of Alexa Middelaer, and other families that have lost loved ones to drinking driving, by significantly reducing the number of alcoholrelated motor vehicle deaths in BC. “Alexa’s story reminds us that B.C.’s tough approach to drinking and driving is in place to protect families, and it was in her memory that we first brought in our tough drinking driving laws. Thanks to the many police officers

who enforce the law and keep us all safe from injury and death on the road, 190 more people are alive today. The Province is honoured to help recognize and thank this year’s new members of Alexa’s Team for their service to British Columbians,” said Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Suzanne Anton. In recognition of their diligence and success enforcing the impaired driving laws of this province, ICBC, the Justice Institute of BC and the Middelaer family are honouring

the 313 officers who form the 2013 Alexa’s Team at four events held in Surrey, Greater Victoria, Kelowna and Prince George. “The 313 members of Alexa’s Team, from the RCMP and municipal police departments across the province, have risen to the challenge and demonstrated that commitment to a noble cause can save lives and make the roads of B.C. safer for all of us. Our objective remains to work with our road safety partners to eliminate impaired driving as a cause of fatal and serious inju-

ry collisions,” said RCMP “E” Division, OIC Enhanced Traffic Services Programs, Insp. Ted Emanuels In 2010, The Middelaer family challenged the RCMP, Municipal police officers, and the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General of British Columbia to reduce the number of deaths caused by alcohol impaired driving by 35 per cent by the end of 2013, the year Alexa would have turned 10-years old. The 52 per cent decrease in alcoholrelated motor vehicle

deaths announced by the Ministry of Justice in February, represents 190 lives saved. Drinking and driving fatalities have dropped significantly over the past three years and Alexa’s Team members were responsible for almost 50 per cent of the impaired driving enforcement in BC in 2013. In 2012, Beirness and Associates Inc. conducted their bi-annual roadside survey to measure alcohol and drug use among BC drivers. The findings indicated that the levels of drinking and driving were

the lowest ever recorded with 8.3 per cent of drivers testing over .05 blood alcohol content. The study also indicated that patterns of drug use by drivers were more consistent than alcohol use with 7.4 per cent of drivers testing positive for drug-impairment. “It is amazing to us that when a team of committed individuals are working collectively towards a goal that change can truly happen. We are humbled by the results of reduced fatalities, and give credit to our front line officers, who are supported by their leaders

and government to truly make our roads safer for all our communities—well done Alexa’s Team,” said Laurel Middelaer, Alexa’s mother and road safety advocate. Alexa’s Team members have been working just as diligently on the drug-impaired driving front removing 231 drivers impaired by drugs from the roads in 2013.
