A group of six young people were very fortunate to have escaped serious injuries after the pickup they were travelling in 1 lost control north of Williams Lake Saturday morning said

Const. Rick Meaver with RCMP Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services. Meaver said the driver was in the process of making a right hand merge from Highway 97 onto Mountain House Road when the truck lost control, left the highway and came to rest

down an embankment. RCMP were called to the scene and arrived around 7:15 a.m. “Only one person was wearing a seat belt,” Meaver said. One female occupant was airlifted to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops with non-life threatening injuries after the

incident, however, she expected her to be released later Tuesday. The other five occupants received minor injuries. Meaver said alcohol and drugs have been ruled out as factors and police are investigating the incident and following up for any possible mechanical issues.

Police respond to 70 calls for service The Williams Lake RCMP responded to approximately 70 calls during the weekend, including the recovery of a stolen and burnt truck. On May 12 at midnight police responded to the theft of a 2013 red Toyota Tundra truck. The truck was stolen from Third Avenue South while the owner was inside the movie theatre, some time between 9:30 and 11 p.m. Attempts to locate the truck were unsuccessful until it was later discovered burned out at the Anaham Reserve near Alexis Creek. “At this point we haven’t identified any suspects,” Const. Jon Collins of the Alexis Creek detachment said Tuesday. “There was no one around when they located the truck.” Saturday, May 10 At 8:24 p.m. police responded to a theft of six yellow plastic milk crates from the SaveOn-Foods parking lot. Police located the thieves who had left in a yellow school bus. After speaking with the driver and another individual, the crates were returned, the matter resolved, and no charges resulted. Sunday, May 11 Police responded to A3

a report that vehicles had been broken into on Second Avenue South, after a call came in at 10:02 a.m. Upon arrival police discovered a black 1990 Toyota pickup with the back driver’s side window smashed. The rock used to smash the window was still inside the truck. The only item taken was a pair of sunglasses, while another vehicle, a silver 2013 GMC Terrain had its front driver’s window smashed. Again, a pair of sunglasses was stolen. Owners of both trucks said they last checked their vehicles at 11:30 p.m. the previous night and no damages were noted at that time. Monday, May 12 At 12:22 a.m. police responded to an alarm at the Fraser Inn Beer and Wine Store. When police arrived they found the window above the front door had been smashed with a rock. Blood was found at the scene and collected for analysis. Video surveillance depicts a person wearing blue jeans and an orange hoodie entering the store, taking one bottle of alcohol and leaving through the broken window. The matter continues under investigation.

National Day of Honour pays tribute

Gaeil Farrar photo

Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139 first vice-president Gordon Keener lays a wreath at the legion cenotaph at noon on Friday, May 9 to mark the end of the Canadian military mission in Afghanistan with the National Day of Honour. Legion president Bonnie O’Neill (left), treasurer Wayne Reeves, veteran Gerald Martin (saluting) and past-president Joyce Norberg participated in the ceremony. A total of 16 military people from the Williams Lake area served in Afghanistan, O’Neill said. The local ceremony coincided with the national ceremony held on Parliament Hill in Ottawa where veterans of all branches of the Canadian Armed Forces and families gathered to pay tribute to the fallen, the sacrifices of the wounded and the special burden borne by military families.

Salvation Army food bank appeals to public for help Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer The Salvation Army food bank in Williams Lake is asking for help. Shelves normally filled with cans of protein will be depleted by the end of this week, said food bank co-ordinator Sabrina Silvey. “We usually run out by July and appeal to the community in the summer, but we need help now to fill the shelves with protein.” As she pointed toward an almost empty shelf she said the food bank desperately needs peanut butter, canned beans, fish and meats.

Williams Lake is always generous, however, this year’s Christmas campaign didn’t bring in as much as normal. Compounding the problem is the reality that more people are in need compared to this time last year. Right now 400 people are receiving monthly hampers, which is up by 30 people, Silvey said. Some people receive hampers weekly. Other people are only eligible for two hampers a year. And Silvey said it’s harder to qualify for hampers now food. The criteria has changed

due to the fact the food bank is running out of food. “We serve the most desperate first and see what’s left over and we do make them provide a lot of information, like proof of income and bills.” A typical family of four receives a box of cereal, bag of rice, two cans of fruit and two cans of vegetables, one can of meat, two cans of beans, four cans of soup, a pack of split peas, crackers, cookies and granola bars. Every day Save-OnFoods donates produce and from those items, the food bank also puts

School district struggles to bring in balanced budget Gaeil Farrar Staff Writer School District 27 staff and trustees are making some headway in finding approximately $1.6 million in savings to bring in a balanced budget for the 2014/15 school year by the June 15 deadline. In a report to the board April 29 Secretary Treasurer Kevin Futcher outlined some of the financial stresses facing the district and the review of where district staff have been working to achieve cost savings. So far Futcher said they have found a total of $736,000 in savings: $173,000 by cancelling

the balanced calendar program at Cataline Elementary school; $350,000 in other program reductions; and $213,000 in reduced administration costs. Cancelling the balanced calendar program is expected to save $164,000 in staffing costs and $9,000 in busing costs. Superintendent Mark Thiessen said the district will not elaborate on where the other program and administration savings will be until the proposals have been discussed with the staff involved. Even with the measures explored to date, Futcher said the district is still facing a short-

fall of approximately $900,000 on its 2014/15 budget. It is expected that the remaining shortfall will be addressed through more budget reductions and utilizing accumulated surpluses. The district is currently facing a structural deficit of $188,000 and a funding reduction of $800,000 next year due to falling student enrolment and partial elimination of funding protection from the Ministry of Education. School operating costs are based on student enrolment. Student enrolment in the district for September 2013 was 4,833 and is expected to

drop to approximately 4,600 students in September. At the same time the district is facing increased costs for the new contract with district support workers that will cost the district an additional $455,000. The Ministry of Education has indicated that no additional funding would be available to districts to cover these contract obligations. Last month the school trustees issued notice that they would not be closing any more schools to address this year’s deficit but are looking at other ways to save on operating costs.

Firefighters battle a blaze last Thursday in 150 Mile House.

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Fire destroys 150 Mile home Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Fire officials suspect sparks from a fireplace which then set a shake roof on fire were to blame for a home being destroyed in 150 Mile House Thursday afternoon. 150 Mile House fire chief Stan McCarthy said they received the call for help just before 3 p.m. to attend a structure fire in the 3000 block of Exton Way. “We got there in six minutes and the house

was already burning really fast,” McCarthy said Friday. The beautiful 26-year-old log home, nestled in its own wooded property, belonged to a retired couple. The wife was home when the fire started. “It was chilly so she lit a fire in the fireplace,” McCarthy said. Sparks flew out from the chimney onto the roof and in less than a few minutes the roof was burning completely. The roof then fell A5

in, engulfing the home in flames. “We didn’t have a hope in hell of saving the house,” McCarthy said, noting the basement was saved, although it suffered severe water damage. Soon after the fire department’s arrival, Miocene and Williams Lake fire departments were called in for assistance. BC Hydro, Fortis and BC Ambulance also attended, followed by a Cariboo Fire Centre crew who checked the surrounding forest for any pos-

sible fire dangers. McCarthy said fire fighters remained on scene mopping up until around 8 p.m. The homeowners do have fire insurance, but have suffered a great loss, he said, adding he put them in touch with emergency services and they were booked into a hotel overnight. It was the first structure fire of 2014 in 150 Mile House, McCarthy said. “There have been wildfires, but not structures burnt until now.”

Official flower deserves better

Take part in Vision Health Month

Moose on the loose


t’s almost lilac time. I whine about this every year, but how many Williams Lakers know the lilac is our official flower? It was adopted by Mayor Rick Gibson’s council. Although that council was known for its pro-business philosophy, it adopted some un-business stuff, like an official poet, Frank  Gleeson, and the lilac.   Once upon a time,  almost every lot in Williams Lake had lilacs. When they bloomed, the whole town smelled like lilacs.   This wasn’t fun for people with allergies but many older-timers have fond memories of those days. I don’t know French how the lilacs Connection got here. Nellie Diana French Hance brought the yellow rose bush when she came to the Chilcotin from Victoria in the late 1880s as the bride of Tom Hance.  She may have brought the lilac too, no doubt the original plant came tucked in the belongings of some woman settler.   Like the early imported wives, the lilac adapted itself to the Cariboo. Because of their resilience — and beauty — lilac are an appropriate bloom to represent this region, not only Williams Lake. Like other newcomers, they survived isolation, drought, frigid temperatures, floods, and everything nature could throw at them. They seem to thrive on adversity. There are lilacs (and rhubarb) still growing on longabandoned Interior homesteads. If left alone, there is no getting rid of them, but they are no match for developers. There are still lilac bushes on private properties in the city, but oddly enough not on city land.  I don’t know if this is by accident or design. We’ve  lost out on a few Gibson initiatives, the lilacs being one of them. When Merritt began promoting lilacs in 2008, former Premier Bill Vander Zalm donated a thousand plants to the city. Whatever, maybe as an 85th  birthday project, the city could find a heritage lilac or two to plant in a park or somewhere. Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune. She is a former Tribune editor, retired teacher, historian, and book author.

Our Viewpoint

Nothing new on 60 Minutes There are many things to which the old adage “Be careful what you wish for ...” applies and American TV coverage is usually one of them. But after the venerated television newsmagazine show 60 Minutes turned its cameras on the salmon farming industry on the coast of B.C. and on the Campbell River area particularly, the conclusion has to be ... OK. The report, which aired on the CBS network Sunday, was generally a balanced overview of the industry and its impact on wild salmon. British Columbians and, certainly, Campbell Riverites would have seen nothing new or groundbreaking in the report. The “usual suspects” were trotted out to give the debate a face: the controversial Alexandra Morton and the articulate Ian Roberts. Both personalities put forward their

positions clearly. Getting a glowing comparison was the State of Alaska, which banned salmon farming 25 years ago, opting instead to go with salmon ranching — raising fish in a hatchery and releasing them into the wild to return on their own and be harvested by commercial fishermen. The result, 60 Minutes said, is a healthy wild fishery in Alaska compared to B.C.’s. which is apparently devastated. Our wild fishery is facing challenges but it’s not devastated, especially when you compare it to the Lower 48 states where it truly is devastated. The controversial points about salmon ranching were not touched on either. And the Canadian government was left looking inept over the possibility of the presence of Infectious Salmon Anemia and any effort to prevent an outbreak.

ay is Vision Health Month. Your eyes are one of the most important organs in your body, and keeping them healthy is very important. Regular checkups and always noticing changes in your vision will prevent issues and problems from arising before it’s too late. Booking an eye exam with your local optometrist is relatively simple and should be done once a year. Young or old, booking an eye exam to catch MLA problems or issues Musings early can be remedied with treatDonna Barnett ments prescribed by your doctor. Optometrists have practices in over 94 communities throughout B.C., including several doctors here in the Cariboo-Chilcotin. For toddlers and school-aged children, it is important that they receive eye tests so that their vision is adequate to be able to concentrate and learn. Entering adulthood, exams can catch age-related conditions or assist in curing nuisances such as dry, itchy or watery eyes. MSP covers annual routine eye examinations for persons aged 65 or older, or aged 18 and younger. Low-income families are also eligible to enter the BC Healthy Kids Program to cover the basic costs of eyewear for children. You can find more information by calling the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation Info Line at 1-866-866-0800. If you have specific questions of MSP your coverage of eye care you can call their toll-free line at 1-800-663-7100. It is important to consider the fact that eye-care is a part of your whole body health, and other symptoms or conditions may be caught if you take good care of your eyes. Check out the British Columbia Doctors of Optometry website at www. to find a clinic closest to you and neat tips and tricks of many simple ways you can take care of your eyes.

Diluted bitumen too dangerous at sea Editor: In a letter to this paper Greg Stringham, on behalf of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, makes  assertions about the  behaviour of diluted bitumen (dilbit) in salt water that are at best  halftruths. He states that dilbit  floats on salt water and it is no more dangerous at sea than other types of oil. That is wrong. It is more dangerous at sea, and infinitely more so than refined fuels like diesel and gasoline. What Stringham doesn’t mention is that the same report from Environment Canada that he quotes from, goes  on to say that dilbit sinks in seawater when  there is sediment present.  Another  study by a top U.S. environmental chemist, Jeff Short, says the same thing. It was filed by the Gitxaala Nation to the National  Energy Board in March 2013, so Stringham

is well aware of it. That  study says animal and plant matter like  plankton, as well as sediment, cause the dilbit to sink. Our entire coast has sediment and plankton in abundance. All  our rivers are glacial and full of silt. Plankton is  omnipresent, which is why the whales are here, and shallow seas like Hecate Strait throw up huge amounts  of  sediment from the bottom in storms. Dilbit will sink in our waters if there is a spill and it will harden up  like caulking material on beaches and the  intertidal zone.  The intertidal zone includes large  mud flats in the midcoast because the tidal range is more than 20 feet there. How would we ever get them  clean again? Stringham also says our Canadian oil industry is interested in  the Kitimat refinery idea. That is news to me. I have talked to all the companies and there is no interest whatsoev-

er. That is why I am spearheading the project.  It will keep dilbit out of tankers and  provide an enormous value-add for B.C. Canada’s oil industry needs a west coast pipeline.  Coastal First Nations, the Yinka Dene  First Nations, Prince  Rupert, Kitimat, Terrace, Smithers, the provincial and  federal NDP, the federal Liberals, the provincial and  federal Green Party, many  blue collar unions and the majority of folks in B.C. are against Northern Gateway’s  idea of putting dilbit in tankers. A refinery is economically viable. Why is it so hard for our oil industry to see that the way forward is to build a green refinery which will cut greenhouse gases by 50 per cent, create thousands of jobs, generate billions of new annual taxes, and gain  acceptance for a safe pipeline?

City unveils new website Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer A new website for the City of Williams Lake is up and running and one of its creators is hoping it will be an improvement. “I’m excited,” the city’s manager of information technology Thomas Chung said Friday. “We’ve tried to make it clean, simple and streamlined.” It’s the city’s third version of a website in a decade. The first one lasted six years, the second one about three, and this new one Chung hopes will endure. Because new ideas and content can be added to it, it can be built on. “We can refresh it and keep it current,” he said as he showed media the website during an orientation session Friday. “This night time shot

of Williams Lake was submitted by a local photographer,” he said as a panoramic view of the lake graced the screen. There’s another span of the golf course, the dock at Scout Island and one of the wooden biking structures on the new Snakes and Ladders trail system. The “dashboard” people see on the screen contains six links. They include inside city hall, live, work, play, how do I? and my Williams Lake. Chung and communications co-ordinator Ken MacInnis said the website also aims to engage the public. “There’s a place for the community to offer ideas and initiatives,” MacInnis explained. “We’ve called that section community voice.” Another feature will save people time. Instead of having to download an entire document, people can

simply choose a question, click on it and more information will appear. “You can read one answer or all the answers. You’ll have a choice,” MacInnis said. People can sign into

the website and create a communication system of their own. If they want to receive certain updates regularly, they can. Work on constructing the new website began about six months

ago, with city staff working in partnership with CivicPlus a larger corporation that creates hundreds of websites in the US and in Canada. The cost for the new website was about $25,000.

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) is proposing amendments to the text of the Cariboo Regional District Chilcotin Area Rural Land Use Bylaw No. 3500, 1999, Williams Lake Fringe and 150 Mile House Area Zoning Bylaw No. 3502, 1999 and Central Cariboo Area Rural Land Use Bylaw No. 3503, 1999 as follows: Bylaw No. 4872, 4874 and 4875 The amendments propose to allow for the keeping of Laying Hens and Hobby Beekeeping.

High-Speed Internet. Where you live.

Bylaw No. 4827, 4829 and 4830 The amendments propose to introduce a minimum lot area for lots subdivided pursuant to Section 946, increase Bed and Breakfast Accommodation units, and to allow an ancillary building maximum size and height in residential and rural zones, with or without a principal dwelling.

Government of British Columbia and Xplornet Partner to Bring Affordable High-Speed to Remote B.C. Residents. Xplornet Communications Inc. is pleased to announce a partnership with the government of British Columbia to help bridge the urban/rural digital divide in rural and remote British Columbia. The initiative is a multi-year program to make Internet connectivity more affordable in rural and remote areas where installation costs can be high.

Written submissions regarding the proposed bylaw will also be received. These submissions may be submitted at the public hearing or should be received in the Cariboo Regional District office at 180 D North 3rd Avenue, Williams Lake, BC, V2G 2A4, (fax number 392-2812) fortyeight hours prior to the hearing. No further information or representations can be considered by the CRD Board after the public hearing. All verbal and written submissions will become the public record.

“The government of British Columbia deserves significant praise for a program that helps break down one of the last barriers to full connectivity in the province – namely the high cost of broadband installation in remote parts of BC. Now, even the most remote British Columbians can affordably benefit from the transformative power of high-speed Internet to connect them to the global economy,” said Xplornet President Allison Lenehan. Xplornet is the country’s leading rural broadband Internet provider and takes pride in connecting over 200,000 Canadians to the world. The commitment to offering every Canadian reliable, affordable and fast Internet is shared by an ever-expanding network of over 450 local dealers, including 60 in British Columbia alone.

To attend online send email to before May 16, 2014. The bylaws may be inspected at 180 D North 3rd Avenue, Williams Lake, BC, between 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, from May 14, 2014 to May 21, 2014 inclusive (excepting public holidays). Telephone inquiries should be directed to the Planning Department of the CRD at 1-800-665-1636.

Thank You Williams Lake!

Public hearings are for all persons who believe their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaws. The public hearings are to be held by a delegate of the Cariboo Regional District Board. A copy of the CRD resolution is available for public inspection.

The program will provide a subsidy of up to $250, or half of the cost of an installation of broadband equipment to new residential and business customers within Xplornet’s industry leading 4G rural broadband satellite footprint. This will significantly reduce the costs of installation, costs that may have been a barrier to the adoption of high-speed Internet.

WLIB partners with Lake Excavating

Photo submitted

WLIB Chief Ann Louie and Lake Excavating’s Trevor Seibert announced this week they are teaming up to pursue potential construction opportunities in the Cariboo and beyond. Williams Lake Indian Band and Lake Excavating Ltd. announced Friday they have entered into a joint venture to pursue

potential construction opportunities in the Cariboo and beyond. “We’re extremely excited about this new partnership,” Chief

Ann Louie of the Williams Lake Indian Band said. “We have agreements with Mount Polley and Gibraltar Mines, as well

as a number of exploration companies, and we’re currently in discussions with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure re-

garding the four-laning of Highway 97 through IR#1. We really want to capitalize on the opportunities that are out there, create employment for our membership, and make sure that the money spent on projects in the Cariboo stays in the Cariboo.” Established in Williams Lake in 1964, Lake Excavating Ltd. is now one of Western Canada’s leading earthworks and infrastructure contractors. Operating out of Williams Lake for 50 years, Lake Excavating Ltd. also has offices in Vancouver and Whitecourt, Alta. Lake Excavating Ltd. has worked on numerous projects in the Williams Lake area, including the Wal-Mart site and various major projects at both Gibraltar and Mt. Polley mines. “After doing business in Williams Lake for 50 years, we’re honoured and excited to

be partnered with the Williams Lake Indian Band to develop new opportunities within the Cariboo,” said Trevor Seibert, chief executive officer of Lake Excavating Ltd. “Our business partnership confirms our commitment to work together for the benefit of WLIB members and to continue contributing to the local economy.” The WLIB/Lake Excavating Ltd. partnership is currently completing a project at Gibraltar Mine and is actively pursuing other opportunities in the area.

Williams Lake Indian Band also announced in late 2013 that it had received a commitment from the government of Canada to fund its Coyote Rock Infrastructure Project. The $5 million Coyote Rock Infrastructure Project will see the development of a multi-use subdivision wrapped around WLIB’s Coyote Rock Golf Course. The initial phase of construction will create 28 residential and 11 commercial lots, and the two-year construction program will commence in 2014.


Band supports land agreement Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Williams Lake Indian Band has jumped over a huge hurdle when it comes to managing its own land. During a three-day voting session, 180 band members voted, and 85 per cent were in favour of proceeding toward a First Nations Land Management (FNLM) agreement. The band will no longer be under the

land management provisions of the Indian Act. “In the future, leasing and management by the band will be held by us exclusively,” WLIB Chief Ann Louie said. “It means we don’t have to go through Aboriginal and Northern Affairs to get approval.” The certification was verified Tuesday and sent off to the Minister, now the band has to work on developing laws

around land management, Louie said. In the past, business development involving WLIB land has been a slow process, taking years sometimes, and causing long delays. “Even our individual band businesses struggled because it took so long to work with the federal government. Now it will be in our own hands.” In 2008, WLIB agreed to become involved in the FNLM process.

There are more and more bands participating, it’s becoming more common, Louie said. The Coyote Rock development along the Highway 97 corridor, south of Williams Lake, continues to proceed. Once all the infrastructure is in place, the band will be able to establish residential and commercial leases. IR No. 1 is approximately 4,000 acres, Louie said.

NEWS Electric fencing good deterrent for bears Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Effectively deterring bears with electric fencing is all about going for the nose shock, said WildSafeBC’s Gillian Sanders. “If they get a good nose shock they learn to really respect that sense and they just simply don’t want to enter the protected area.” Animals gain information from the world with their noses and it’s also a wet and sensitive part of the body, so they learn really well from a nose shock. The nose is also the leading part of the body so if a bear is approaching, receives a shock on the nose, it will withdraw and back up. Sanders was in Williams Lake last Saturday presenting an electric fencing workshop to a dozen locals at the Potato House. “The lowest hot wire has to be eight inches from the ground,” Sanders said, explaining the rest are set above in eight-inch intervals. She’s now installed more than 95 electric fences for bears and has not seen digging at that eight inch above the ground height. If someone has had previous digging , before an electric fence goes up, there’s a way of putting an insulator on a stake down in the dig hole and splicing from the bottom hot wire to fill in the gap. In the Cariboo where it’s drier, people may need to alternate hot and cold wires to ensure a good shock, with the bottom and top most wires being hottest to prevent digging under or climbing over. “You will need a good ground on your fence, and an electric fence energizer capable of a minimum of 6,000 volts or 0.7 joules to deter bears” she added. Sanders began using electric fencing more than 15 years ago at her Meadow Creek farm near Kaslo to protect A11

The City of Williams Lake and the Potato House Society hosted an electric fencing workshop Saturday in efforts to keep bears out of attractants such as livestock pens, composts and bee hives. her own bee hives and chickens. “I started helping the Conservation Officer Service by installing electric fencing at various locations to prevent grizzly bear/livestock conflicts, and set up in other situations where Grizzly bears were coming in in 2007.” She also helped set up electric fencing throughout the Kootenays and in the Bella Coola area. When it’s installed and maintained properly, electric fencing is effective to protect chickens and other poultry, beehives, goats, sheep, pigs, calves, fruit trees, and other attractants from for both black and grizzly bears. The city of Williams Lake along with the Potato House Society decided to host the workshop because in January the city legalized the raising of bees and chickens within city limits. City planner Chris Hutton said so far one person has applied through the city hall to raise bees, but no one has applied to raise hens. “We had a mix of ranchers and beekeepers interested in fencing on a smaller scale attend the workshop,” Hutton

said. The information Sanders provided will help ensure there aren’t wildlife conflicts with bees and hens in the city, which are huge attractants to bears, he added. If people are looking

HIV tests to be offered to all adults Tom Fletcher Black Press Routine HIVAIDS testing is being offered once every five years to all B.C. residents aged 18-70, building on infection control efforts that have been recognized around the world in reducing disease transmission and death. B.C.’s “Treatment as Prevention” strategy has proven so effective in pilot programs in Vancouver and Prince George that the government is extending its outreach efforts across the province. Routine testing of pregnant women has all but eliminated mother-child transmission, and antiviral therapies have cut the death toll of AIDS by 90 per cent since 1996. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall said going beyond identified risk groups has proven effective in finding infected people in time to provide effective drug treatment. The treatment not only extends life to nearly normal lifespan, it also prevents most transmission of the virus once the patient is being treated. “These guidelines hold the promise that by expanding HIV testing as we have done, we will be taking another great step towards potentially eliminating HIV in the province of British Columbia,” Kendall said. Dr. Julio Montaner, director of the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIVAIDS, said the United Nations continues

to use B.C. as a model for its global effort to eliminate the disease. “Back in 1995 we used to have one person or more dying per day at St. Paul’s Hospital alone, every year because of HIV and AIDS,” Montaner said. “Today, my [physician] residents don’t know what that looks like. We virtually have eliminated death from HIV.” Health Minister Terry Lake said the program is funded with $19.9 million a year, and is recognized as an invest-

ment in prevention that saves the province money as well as improving individual well-being for patients. Information for health care providers on the new testing guidelines is available at a new website, Doctors will continue to offer HIVAIDS tests to patients of any age who present with new or worsening medical conditions that require lab tests, show symptoms of HIV infection, are pregnant or if they request an HIV test.

“The students started to brainstorm design ideas, sponsors and a location for the project, and we thought the historic Potato House would be a perfect place to do the planting.” The students, who are from Iran, the Philippines, Japan, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil, Korea, Macedonia, India and Mexico, wrote letters to perspective sponsors. “This includes

things like language, carpentry, gardening and communication skills,” Nelson added. The community is invited to stop by the Potato House on May 15 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to see a fun, historic project in the making. “Stop by and say hello, hola, konnichiwa, kumusta kayo or sat siri akal,” she said. “This is more than a class project — it’s a community project.”

No fire bans in Cariboo As of Tuesday there were no fire prohibitions in place within the Cariboo Fire Centre. “However, we do monitor weather and fuel conditions closely, and should there be an increased risk of human-caused wildfire starts, we will implement bans accordingly,” fire information officer Navi Saini said. If someone is planning to burn in an area that is serviced by a fire department, the centre recommends they check with local authorities first because they may have their own regulations in place. In the Cariboo Fire Centre region there are currently four actively burning fires. So far this season, the Cariboo Fire Centre has responded to 44 fires, the vast majority of which were humancaused and therefore completely preventable, Saini said. The region is sitting at a low to moderate

danger rating, he added. Meanwhile, effective noon on Thursday May 15, the size of open fires will be restricted in most of the Kamloops Fire Centre to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect the public. The prohibition applies to all areas of the Kamloops Fire Centre except the Clearwater Fire Zone and the Salmon Arm Fire Zone. The Clearwater Fire Zone and the Salmon Arm Fire Zone will become subject to this prohibition on June 15, when all open burning will be prohibited throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre. Anyone lighting Category 2 or 3 fires outside of those two zones must extinguish any such fires by noon on May 15. This prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 15, or until further notice.

Police Week Working Together to Build Better Communities Canadian Police Week is dedicated to increasing community awareness and recognition of policing services while strengthening police-community ties. Police Week encourages community involvement and initiation activities through media awareness and community sponsored events. Police Week is governed by four specific objectives ~ to act as a vehicle in which to reinforce ties with the community; to honour police officers for the public safety and security they provide to their communities; to promote the work police do in their communities; and to inform the community about the police role in public safety and security. Building strong relationships is helping to keep our streets safe across Canada. In Williams Lake, numerous community groups have joined forces with the RCMP to promote safe streets and crime prevention. Currently in Williams Lake, we have a number Community Policing programs where volunteers work with the detachment and the RCMP members to make Williams Lake a safer

community to work, live and play. “There is no doubt that strong community ties help to fight and prevent crime” stated Inspector Warren Brown, the Officer in charge of the Williams Lake RCMP. “We can’t expect these relationships to happen on their own. That is why Police Week is so important to happen in our community. We share our experiences and challenges with our community and not only learn what their priorities are but we also build a strong resources base of dedicated citizens who help keep our community safer.” It may be Citizens on Patrol completing a vehicle patrol, foot patrol or bicycle patrol in the community, the Mounted Citizen on Patrol out patrolling, or one of the many other organizations volunteers working in the community. We also have an active group of youth working with our Citizens Patrol leader, Bob McIntosh as well as other members.  This is a very positive program and rewarding for the youth that are involved.

It is not just the groups you see on the street, either that help make a difference. We also have many very active volunteers in the Restorative Justice, Speed watch, Wandering Program, Crime Stoppers, Realty Watch and Operation Red Nose. Business Watch continues to be a great tool to communicate and share information with our valued business partners. Many of our local RCMP members and support staff volunteer their time being mentors, role models and coaches to the youth in our community to initiate and nurture developmental assets in the lives of our youth. For more information on how you can get involved in our community in Crime Prevention, please contact Dave Dickson, the Community Safety Coordinator at 250-392- 8701.  Inspector Warren Brown Officer in charge ~ Williams Lake Detachment Dave Dickson Safer Community ~ Williams Lake

Then we bypassed Kelowna and headed for Beaverdell, admiring the evidence of the now defunct historic Kettle Valley railway. Then the chilling hail hit but a single glass of beer at Rock Creek restored us us. We weaved our way north along the valley, through wine country, to Penticton. “Piece of cake,” said George the next day as he looked at the route to Hope. The winding back road trail to Princeton was a joy but the last stretch home was not. First, we were hit by snow, then hail that numbed our faces as we descended from Manning Park. I thought I had made a significant anatomical discovery when it appeared that the icy wind blasting up my right nostril seemed to exit through my left ear. Of course, it could have been the hole in the left side of my helmet. There was one other little challenge. The panel failed so I had to peer at my handheld GPS to figure out what speed we were doing then shout at the top of my voice when George exceeded the posted limit. We made it safe and sound. “Next year, Sid?” “I’ll get back to you, George.”

Question OF THE WEEK:

Driveway editor Keith Morgan writes today about how a 3-day rally along picturesque B.C. roads turned him to the idea of a B.C. summer ‘staycation’. Will you do a road trip holiday though B.C. this year, and if so where to? Go to to submit your answer.



Safety Tip: As the weather continues to get warmer, drivers should expect to share the road with more motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians. When turning at an intersection, use extra caution and look out for these other road users to help keep our roads safe.

Buying the right motorcycle for the right price By Alexandra Straub

You’ve got your license, you’ve got your proper gear, now all you need is your motorcycle. Here are a few things to consider before signing on the dotted line. Budget

Establishing a budget is probably the most important thing to outline when it comes to your new ride. If you’re buying used, this is particularly important. You might be tempted to spend an extra couple of thousand on the bike of your dreams. But if the dream bike just happens to be a nightmare and costs you an unanticipated fortune on repairs, you might find yourself in a pickle. New or Used?

There are differing benefits to buying new or used. New bikes have warranties, but a used bike that might not be too old could still have one. Is buying either way better than the other? Not necessarily. Buying used you could get a more upscale model for your budget. Private Sale or from a Dealership?

Speaking from experience, buying through a private sale can be a good way to go, especially on a budget. I found my bike on Craigslist. But if you can’t pay cash up front, dealers generally have financing or payment plan options. Private sales don’t. Dealers also have most likely done a tune-up or some service in preparing the bike for the sale. Check the VIN through ICBC or a Trusted Database

It might cost you a few extra dollars to run a bike’s VIN through a trusted database but can save you multiple headaches in the end. It will show if the bike has been in any reported accidents and detail the damage.


Establishing a budget is probably the most important thing to outline when it comes to your new ride.


Alexandra Straub

It’ll also show if there is money owing on the bike or if it was reported stolen. Keep in mind, if the bike is from out of the country, the record likely won’t show. When I went to buy my first bike, I had my heart set on a beautiful Yamaha R6. It looked brand new and perfect. The seller said it had never been in any accidents and had all original parts. I left thinking that the next day I’d be riding this beauty home. However, I paid my $20 (at the time) and found out the bike had been in two accidents with damage costs of more than $3,000. If you’re buying through a dealership, they might even have the bike’s history on hand for you. It never hurts to double check. The Myth of Displacements

Many new riders like to set a cap on the cc displace-


ment they’re willing to get for their first bike. I had a reader write me asking what he should get. He’s 6’2”, 220 pounds and had long limbs. He didn’t want anything higher than a 250cc though. I asked him why. He said he wanted something manageable for his first bike. With long arms and legs, a 250cc bike wasn’t going to fit him! Or vice versa. I told him to look at cruisers, like the Harley-Davidson Sportster, Honda Shadow, Suzuki Boulevard S40, Yamaha Bolt. They might have a higher displacement but they’re going to be easy to manage and work much better with his body. What did he buy? A used 2006 Honda Shadow 750cc. And he loves it. I recommend buying a bike that you are comfortable on, both physically and mentally. Test Rides

Private sellers won’t generally let you test ride, but ask. Dealers are more open to this, especially with newer models because they have demo fleets. Mechanical Inspection

If you’re buying used, and you are this close to making the decision, before you go to the bank and give up your savings, spend an extra $100-$200 to get a motorcycle mechanic

When you head out to buy your motorcycle, Alexandra Straub advises arrive armed with a budget and stick to it. to look at your potential purchase. Private sellers will generally ride the bike down to a location of your choice and let the mechanic work their magic. The mechanic will then let you know what things might need to be worked on in the near or distant future. If the seller thinks it’s too much work, then it’s your call if you want to continue to work with them. I wouldn’t buy a bike without knowing what I’m getting into.

Canadian car versions versus U.S. editions By Bob McHugh

During a recent short stay in Los Angeles, I drove a Mazda3i Grand Touring. It’s a trim level that’s not available in Canada, even though Mazda3 is more popular (comparatively) in Canada than in the US. And price, well, that also turned out to be a surprisingly interesting comparison. It’s easy to understand why so many Canadians already love Mazda3. The 2014 edition is an improved all-new generation car that’s already been voted Canada’s Best New Small Car, by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). Softer, more flowing body styling lines cover a new SkyActiv structure that’s lighter yet, according to Mazda, offers a 30 per cent improvement in torsional rigidity. The 3’s wheelbase has also been stretched by 6 cm, yet it’s a tad shorter in overall length. Inside the cabin there’s more room, especially leg and head room for the rear passengers. Mazda3i GT Sedan: A topline GT (Grand Touring) edition of Mazda3 is available in Canada, but only with a larger 2.5-litre SkyActiv engine and an automatic transmission. The 3i GT that I drove in LA came with the smaller 2.0-litre SkyActiv engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. An


Our American friends have a choice of six Mazda3 trim levels, while Canadians have only three.


Bob McHugh

automatic is an option in the US and there’s also a 3s GT edition with the 2.5-litre engine (manual and automatic). The 2.0-litre engine was available last year in Mazda3, but the new body allows a larger exhaust manifold and this improves its mid-range torque output. It’s definitely better, but still not great. That said, overall I really like this engine and crisp-shifting manual transmission combination and the fuel economy was outstanding. There was 312 miles (502 km) on the trip meter when I pulled into a gas station, for the first time, at the end of my stay. It took less than 9 gallons ($35) to fill the tank. That’s 34.8 mpg (US), or 41.8 mpg (Imp gal) or 6.9 L/100 km, if you prefer metric and brilliant by any measure. My driving was a mix of city/highway and

usual traffic hold-ups that are commonplace in the LA area. The EPA official combined fuel economy rating for this vehicle is 33 mpg. Canada vs U.S.: Small cars are number one in Canada and we bought over 40,000 Mazda3 models last year, making it the fourth most popular small car. Mid-size cars traditionally out-sell small cars in the US, and Mazda3 was only the tenth best seller in the small car segment, however, that’s still 100,000 plus sales. A no-frills, stripped base model is also the norm in the US, but not in Canada (got to have those seat heaters). In fact, our American friends have a choice of six Mazda3 trim levels, while Canadians have only three. “We have a less complicated trim level strategy,” countered Sandra Lemaitre (National Manager, Public Relations at Mazda Canada). “One, to make it less complicated for consumers and two, to allow our dealers carry inventory that consumers want. We also offer more option packages that allow consumers to add on, rather than making them commit to a specific trim” Pricing: You’ve probably read (on the inter-web) or heard of people saving thousands of dollars by buying a vehicle in the US. That may be true for some

The 2014 Mazda3 in Los Angeles. high-end luxury or specialty products, but not so in the price-competitive lower end of the market. Dollar for dollar a Canadian pays about the same, or less, than a US buyer, for a similar new Mazda3. So, you will definitely save money by buying a new Mazda3 in Canada, when you also factor in the current 10 to 12 per cent difference in currency exchange rates and importation costs. The base Mazda3 GX, with a start price of $15,995 in Canada, is a real bargain. That’s $950 below the lowest priced Mazda3 sold in the US, the SV (stripped edition), at $16,945. At the top end, a Mazda3 Sky GT is $25,855 in Canada. The equivalent US model is a Mazda3s GT (automatic) at $25,995. “When we price our vehicles in Canada we look

Members of the Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddle Society present Gordon Stobbe’s The Fiddle History of Canada to a sold out crowd Saturday evening in the Gilbraltar Room. Pictured above left to right are: Shannon Muhammed, Tyana Ross, Massimo Calabrese, Lauryn Marklinger (front, left), Gabrielle Pierce (back row on guitar), Sophie Brown, Syrus Muhammed, Boston Pierce, Nayeli Doerner, Maya Nowotny, Kate Neufeld and Lucia Johnston.

Youth shine at fiddle concert Proud family and friends packed the Gibraltar Room Saturday evening to take in Gordon Stobbe’s The Fiddle History of Canada. Presented by the Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddle Society, the performance was the culmination of two years of effort put in by the local youth fiddle society, its volunteer parents, local violin instructor Ingrid Johnston and supportive businesses. As many as 40 musicians aged seven to 17 were a part of the performance, telling the story of the arrival of the first fiddle to Canada through fiddles, guitars, pianos, drums, singing, costumes and dance. Gordon Stobbe first developed the Fiddle History of Canada in 2010 in collaboration with Leslie Jean MacMillan, musical director of the Valley Youth Fiddlers, in Smithers. By 2012 the production was arranged by Stobbe and performed by the Valley Youth Fiddlers to rave reviews. Soon after that, the Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddle Society started the Fiddle History of Canada music program here in Williams Lake. And judging by the standing ovation given at the end of the performance, the concert was a great success.

The Williams Lake Fire Department invites the community to its annual open house Sunday, May 25. Come meet the members of the fire department, enjoy a hot dog barbecue and a bake sale, check out the fire trucks and the fire hall, and learn about safety in the Safety House.

Fiddlers Megan Neufeld, Mackenzie Magnowski and Amy Hanson are all smiles.

The McDonald’s Bicycle Rodeo has been rescheduled for May 27 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Canadian Tire parking lot. The event was rescheduled due to weather on May 3. This year the McDonald’s Bicycle Rodeo committee is teaming up with the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society who in partnership with Red Shred’s Bike and Board Shed is offering gently used bicycles for anyone that doesn’t own a bike. Anyone needing a used bicycle can call the Conservation Society at 250-398-7929 and ask for Briana van de Wijngaard.

Dry Grad preparations well on the way Marilyn Strohschein Special to Tribune/Advisor Here we are again, 26 years and Dry Grad is going strong. This community event was created with the objective of allowing graduates to enjoy a safe, fun-filled alcohol and drug free party. The 2014 graduation classes of Lake City Secondary School, GROW/Skyline Centre, Cariboo Adventist Academy, and Maranatha Christian School will be celebrating 13 years of being in school with an evening of glamour and entertainment. The Dry Grad executive and our magnificent volunteers have been hard at work planning the event that will happen on Saturday, June 7, at the Cariboo Memorial Complex, right after the popular Dry Grad 2014 parade to the complex, which will start at 6 p.m. on Second Avenue and Comer Street. The ingenious and amazing team of decorating volunteers has been tirelessly developing and creating this year’s theme of Vintage Hollywood, at 213 – 369 Oliver Street, above Curves. We are extremely grateful that we were able to use this location, which was generously donated by Parnell Pi-

nette. We have now moved to our location at 370 Mackenzie Avenue, which is situated between the Williams Lake Radiator and Welding Services and the Williams Lake Judo Club. This is where the larger projects will be built, such as boxes, walls, Nickolodeon ticket booths, western town facades, perhaps a wall that falls on people, etc.  No matter your skillset, we have a job for everyone, so please join us. If you ever wanted to see how an event of this magnitude happens, you should visit the location and see how well organized Sheryl-Lynn Lewis, Sharon Haynes and Jennifer Haley have utilized the space. Check out our photos on our Facebook Page: Williams Lake Dry Grad 2014 for a look into the makings of Vintage Hollywood. Every year we need numerous volunteers to help with making this event a success, and every year, it seems, we need to make a desperate plea for more volunteers to come forward. Volunteers can lend a hand in any one of these areas; activities, baggage, decorating, food, fundraising, parade, prizes, and security. Students, parents and

others who are able to help with these various events are asked to contact Betty Turatus at 250-392-5074 (H) or 250-302-9412 (C), or email eturatus@shaw. ca or Chantal Lambert at 250-398-6432 (H), or email The fee has been raised to $115 for the

As a result of the weather and the anticipated event, people came out in droves. Hosted by the Williams Lake Food Policy Council each year, this year was the first time it was hosted at its community memory garden on Carson Drive. The event featured seeds, plants, yummy chai tea and locally produced smokies for sale, and free gardening and community information in abundance. Members of the Williams Lake Gardening Club were also on hand giving demos. Chilcotin Road elementary school students helped local singer/songwriter LeRae Haynes share her song Amadeus

Falcons land ‘AAA’ provincial soccer berth Greg Sabatino Staff Writer The Lake City Falcons senior girls soccer team punched their ticket to the ‘AAA’ provincial championships Sunday in its first season playing together as a combined high school. The Falcons travelled to Prince George for the North Central Zone Championships, defeating Prince George Secondary School in two straight games in a best-ofthree series. The first game saw the Falcons take a commanding 3-0 lead in the first half following tallies from Sissy Reid (2) and Kendall Jensen. Head coach Caitlin Sabatino said the second game was a much closer battle. Jensen opened the scoring for the Falcons, however, PGSS found the twine moments later after Victoria Page attempted to block a shot and goalkeeper Morgan

The Lake City Falcons senior girls soccer team are the North Central Zone Champions. The Falcons will now travel to Vancouver for the ‘AAA’ provincials from May 29-31. Moore challenged the PGSS forward. Tied heading into the second half — despite the heat and a few injuries — Jensen notched the

game winner, giving the Falcons a 2-1 victory. “We had an incredibly committed core group of ladies this season that was a nice blend of the

old Williams Lake secondary and Columneetza secondary teams,” Sabatino said. “They really gelled the last few tournaments and it’s showing in their passes, communication and overall play.” Earlier in the season the team, made up of 20 players, travelled to California for a spring break soccer trip, playing games against three rep teams from San Diego. In April the team played at a tournament in Chilliwack, leaving with two wins and three losses. Following that the team travelled to Summerland for a tournament, before hosting the first annual Lake City Secondary Tournament May 2-3. Sabatino added she believes the Falcons will be competitive at provincials. “I think they can hold their own, definitely, when we travel to Vancouver,” she said. The ‘AAA’ provincial championships go May 29-31 in Vancouver.

Junior girls Falcons go unbeaten at home tourney Greg Sabatino Staff Writer It was a perfect weekend for the Lake City Falcons junior girls soccer team May 2-3, who finished first at their first annual home tournament. “They were great,” said junior girls coach Mike Brogan. “We just came together. They were very solid, and were an offensive threat out there. You could really see them developing as a team and they looked good.” The Falcons defeated Nechako Valley and Mackenzie Friday, both by scores of 4-1. Then on Saturday the Falcons shutout Fort St. James, 5-0. Falcons sniper Grace Outhouse

scored six goals in three games in the tournament to lead all scorers, while Melissa Rispin kept the door shut in goal. Brogan, who co-coached the team with Jodie Mason, added Rispin was the MVP in goal, and on defence Morgan Bloise and Vittoria Durfeld played well. Up front he said Grace, her sister, Faith Outhouse, Taylor Brink, Isabelle Call and Cassidy Herrick played strong tournaments. Earlier in the season the Falcons travelled to Summerland for a tournament, winning one game and losing two. “We hadn’t played a lot of games together at the first tournament in April but they played well,” Bro-

Swimmers post provincial qualifying times Fourteen Williams Lake Blue Fins swimmers made their way to Kelowna this weekend to swim against teams from Vancouver, Calgary and all of the Okanagan. The meet was a long course (Olympic distance pool) with both heats and finals, so making top eight was the goal in order to get a chance to swim again. Madison Blusson started off finals on the first night blowing away her competition by six seconds to win the 100 metre breaststroke. She continued this with the 200-metre breaststroke on the next night beating her competition by more than seven seconds for her second first-place swim of the meet. On the third night Madison finished up the 50-metre breaststroke to clinch her third win in all three breaststroke events. Liam McCreight followed suit in the 200-metre breaststroke shortly after, moving himself up two places for a sixth-place finish and his first ever ‘AA’ provincial standard. He continued this

success in the 50-metre freestyle and the 100-metre breaststroke as he made two more ‘AA’ provincial standards and secured himself a spot at ‘AAs’ in Victoria in June. Liam also finished up eighth in the 100-metre butterfly. In his 50-metre breaststroke Liam led for most of the race but was narrowly out touched to finish second, his highest placing of the meet. Gracie Frost also achieved her second ‘AA’ in the 100-metre backstroke and also earned her way to compete at AAs. Gracie, 10, racing in the 11 and under category, finished up eighth overall in the 100-metre backstroke and 50-metre backstroke and eighth in the 50-metre butterfly. “These were great swims for her as there was a lot of tough competition in her age group,” said Blue Fins head coach Chad Webb. Keanna Saunders also swam against the 11 and unders and finished up eighth overall in the 200-metre breaststroke and 50-metre breaststroke and earned her

first AA time. “She will need one more in order to qualify for the meet as she just missed qualifying for AAs in the 200-metre individual medley by less than half a second,” Webb said. Lief Brandson placed well as a 10 year old in the 11 and under category as he finished up fourth in 50-metre backstroke and eighth in the 200-metre backstroke. He also took 40 seconds off his 400-metre individual medley time to post another ‘AA’ qualifying time. Ashley Beauchamp had a solid second night as she swam seven swims that day with four finals to move up placings in everything she swam. With many best times she finished up with fourth in the 400-metre individual medley and the 200-metre individual medley and eighth in the 200-metre breaststroke. The boys relay team of Landon Christensen, Mitchell Ryan, Leif and Liam placed fifth in both the medley and freestyle relays. The senior girls with Ashley, Kelsey Blok-

land, Coral Choi and Geneva Gordon placed eighth in both the medley and the freestyle relay. Top eight results and notes from the meet are as follows:  David Russell: sixth in 50-metre backstroke, third in the 50-metre freestyle, and a solid 100-metre freestyle improvement.  Landon Christensen: fifth in the 200-metre butterfly and a 42 second improvement in the 200 individual medley. Coral Choi: seventh in the 200-metre individual medley and a big improvement by two seconds in her last

swim of the meet — the 100-metre freestyle. Kelsey Blokland: Seventh in the 50-metre backstroke and eighth in the 200-metre backstroke. Isabelle Knox, Mitchell Ryan and Geneva Gordon also had some solid individual swims. Webb added he was pleased with the results from the meet. “These were some good results considering that the meet was more of a training meet for the swimmers in preparation for the Kamloops meet at the end of May and ‘AA’ Provincials in June, and ‘AAAs’ in July,” he said.

Mining week 2014 Mining week 2012

Mining has long history in B.C. Bill Bennett Mining Week 2014 We are celebrating Mining Week in B.C. this week to recognize the industry as one of our province’s key economic drivers. Mining has a significant history and a promising future in B.C. Not only has the mining industry helped shape B.C. during the last 150 years, it will play an important role in creating a strong and stable economic future. Over the past dozen years, mining has made significant strides forward here in B.C. The production value of mining in 2012 was $8.3 billion — up from $2.9 billion in 2001. I’m proud to say that more than 30,000 people are employed in mining, mineral exploration, and related sectors — whereas in 2001

only 14,700 people were employed in the sector. Those are promising numbers and even with the current downturn in commodity prices, the progress we’ve made is reassuring and provides confidence that B.C.’s mining industry and the communities facing current challenges will bounce back. I understand the decision by the federal government to not support the proposed New Prosperity Mine was discouraging for many people in the region including MLAs Donna Barnett and Coralee Oakes, and I too was disappointed. We made our position on the project clear and now we will wait to hear from the company on their plans to respond. I think it’s important to note that the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency

has invited the company to resubmit another proposal “that addresses the government’s concerns.” With that being said, mining in the Cariboo has made some strides forward following the expansion of Gibraltar Mine in Williams Lake. The expansion provides more than 520 full time family-supporting jobs for the area and the project expects to produce 85,000 metric tonnes of copper and molybdenum per day and its mine life has been extended to 2039. So while temporary downturns in the mining industry are expected, yet still unfortunate, there is no doubt B.C.’s mining industry is healthy. The mineral exploration and mining industry provides more than 30,000 well-paying jobs in communities throughout the

province. Since 2011, three new major mines have opened, three more are expected to open this year, a further three are under construction or permitted and seven major expansions of existing mines have been approved. As we move forward, our overall goal is to ensure the mining industry has every opportunity to succeed in communities across B.C. to help strengthen our provincial and local economies. Stable management of our economy and maintaining an attractive investment climate means that when global commodity prices do improve, B.C. will be one of the first places mining companies chose to invest. Bill Bennett is the Minister of Energy and Mines and is responsible for core review.

Mining week 2014

Gibraltar improves environment and economic performance Dave Rouleau Mining Week 2014 BC Mining Week is an opportunity for the people and communities throughout B.C. to recognize the importance of the mining industry, one of the largest and oldest industries in our province. During this week we celebrate people, communities, and companies that make the industry successful. Collectively, those working directly in the industry strive to make B.C. an economic and sustainable resource-based province, of which we can all be proud. At Taseko-Gibraltar, we believe a successful balance of economic development and environmental stewardship is something to celebrate and strive for year round. Together, our 700 employees of which 98 per cent of are based in the Cariboo, contribute to the sustainability of our company through their innovation, forward thinking, and drive for success. Since restarting in 2004, Taseko-Gibraltar has undergone a multiphase revitalization program, taking an old outdated mine and investing significantly

into its modernization to the point where it has now become a leading state-of-the-art mining facility. While the overarching goal of the initiative was to increase Gibraltar’s production capacity, savings in terms of energy usage and fuel consumption provide lasting economic and environmental benefit contributing to the company’s long term sustainability. Since 2004, when our reporting process began, Taseko-Gibraltar has dramatically reduced energy consumption by approximately 386,210,874 kilowatt hours, worth an estimated $20 million dollars in savings. Energy and fuel savings highlights include: • The company invested $40 million on a new electrically powered in-pit crusher and conveyor system. It is estimated the new crusher reduced two haul trucks from the fleet of vehicles at the mine, thereby eliminating their greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption. • The implementation of the idling mobile equipment guidelines, calls for shutting down of machinery if unattended.

Since 2004 Taseko-Gibraltar has made multiple energy and fuel saving efforts by reducing idling of machines and upgrading engines. This reduces diesel fuel consumption, air emissions, and hours of engine wear. Senior management has been promoting this initiative in the field with all operators, just as they do with safety at the mine site. In addition, more accurate measurements, along with targets, are being developed to better track this initiative. • Upgraded Gibraltar’s Komatsu 930E fleet 300 ton haul trucks with Cummins engines to the Tier 2 engine improved emissions controls with three units changed out during 2013 and the last truck before

April 2014, thus saving 219,331 litres of diesel and reducing emissions by 599,000 kg of greenhouse gas CO2 equivalent per

year. • Devised a system to reduce the use of explosives in the open pit mine which focused on reducing powder fac-

tors and maximizing drill yields. With diesel fuel as one of the primary components of the bulk explosives used at the Gibraltar Mine, these initiatives have led to a reduction in diesel fuel consumed for blasting by 253,986 litres of diesel during 2013 and reduced emissions by 1,499,490 Kg of greenhouse gas CO2 equivalent • Installed solar panels and wind generators for the radio repeaters that replace diesel generators • In 2004 an employee bus program was implemented, reducing the number of commuter vehicles and thereby decreasing road traffic and greenhouse emissions.

• Since 2008, when waste management monitoring began, 11,145,851 of waste oil, 5494 tires, 22,229 batteries, 3894 tons of scrap metal have been recycled. We understand our legacy as a company is not only in the jobs and opportunities we provide, the families we support and the communities we strengthen. It can also be measured by the economic and environmental improvements we can achieve through our relentless pursuit of the new technical and scientific discovery and its application. Dave Rouleau is the VP of Operations for Taseko Mines and also the Gibraltar Mine manager.

Mining week 2014

Mount Polley on track with life-of-mine plan Luke Moger Mining Week 2014 2013 saw Mount Polley continue production under the 2023 life-of-mine plan. The mine saw copper production increase by 14 per cent (33.8 million pounds to 38.5 million pounds) in 2013 over 2012; a function of higher copper grade and improved mill recovery and increased mill throughput. Gold recovery was also higher, but total production decreased by 13 per cent (52,236 ounces to 45,823 ounces) as a function of a lower gold grade. Mount Polley continued work on the major haul network, waste dump and corresponding water collection systems upgrades started in 2012 as part of the extension of the previous mine plan from 2016 to the projected 2023 operations. Mining continued in the Springer Pit, with work continuing in stripping the previously mined Cariboo pit in preparation for an expanded open pit design encompassing the two; capturing the main ore body on the site. Underground mine development also continued, with significant work being completed towards the projected production mining start-up of mid-June, 2014. Mount Polley continues to work with both local First Nations with interest in the area, the Williams Lake Indian Band and Xatśūll First Nation (Soda Creek Indian Band). With participation agreements executed with both groups, representatives of all three parties meet bi-monthly, rotating through each group hosting. These meetings pro-

Mining week 2014

Craigmont Industries opens plant

Heavy Metal Rocks

Monica Lamb-Yorski Mining Week 2014 In his past life Brent Gilchrist went for gold. Now the former NHL player is after magnetite. Gilchrist is president of Craigmont Industries and on Jan. 15 the company opened a magnetite plant at Imperial Metal’s Mount Polley Mine near Likely, B.C. “We identified Mount Polley as a high grade source of magnetite and we approached Imperial Metals and Mount Polley on a partnership basis,” Gilchrist said. “They are excellent operators who we’ve developed a great relationship with.” Presently three shifts at the plant employ 18 people, a combination of locals and newcomers, and there’s a potential to increase production based on sales without having to build a bigger plant, Gilchrist explained. Magnetite is taken out of the tailings, which in turn reduces the waste going to the tailings pond. “We take the magnetite and upgrade it to a very high quality specification for a process called dense media separation, used in coal plants, water treatment plants and pot ash plants.” As a very heavy mineral, magnetite can aid in producing clean coal. The process of separating magnetite from copper tailings involves magnetic separation, grinding and quality control to ensure that client specifications are achieved. Craigmont Industries built the plant to service the coal mines in Western Canada, said business manager Andrew Rockendale. The location of the plant puts it in a good logistical reach of each of those coal mines who use the magnetite as part of their operations for cleaning coal. Coal preparation technology has developed around the differences in specific gravities of coal and the ash. Typically a coal preparation plant consists of breaking the coal into smaller pieces and then screening the

larger solid ash particles. The remaining coal and ash is mixed into a heavier than water fluid. In simple terms the lighter coal floats to the top of the “heavy media” fluid and the ash sink. Both coal and ash are then screened to maximize the recovery of the heavy media for reuse. The “washed” product is now ready for market. The more of this waste material that can be removed from coal, the greater its market value and the

lower its transportation costs. Clean coal means higher profits for coal mining companies. Magnetite from the plant is also sold as far away as Australia. It goes by truck, rail, ship and barges. “It’s a very unique material,” Rockendale said. Gilchrist played for the Montreal Canadiens at one point so he’s watching the playoffs and goaltender Carey Price with interest. He grew up in Vernon

and played for five NHL teams. He was with the Detroit Red Wings when they won the Stanley Cup in 1996. His new profession, however, is a lot of fun, he said. “Williams Lake is a great community. It’s got a great mining history, great mining currently and great mining future. There’s a lot of skilled labour. Every time we come up to visit the plant we enjoy ourselves. We love the area.”
