Approval set for overhaul of ALR policies Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

in crime here in the first part of the year that Romanchuk said has seen an overall jump of six per cent. Last year, overall crime dropped in Kelowna by about 13 per cent. Romanchuck said he expects to “break even” this year when it comes to the crime rate, adding a drop of 13 per cent over two years is “not that bad.”

Any hope that opponents of proposed government changes to B.C.’s Agricultural Land Reserve had that the legislation would be scrapped have been quashed by Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick. Despite an avalanche of feedback about the proposed changes—much of it negative, according to Letnick—Letnick told the Capital News on Friday the legislation, known as Bill 24, along with several amendments he proposed shortly after taking over as minister in April, will be passed in the legislature this week. “It’s a government bill, the government supports it and we will pass it by the end of the (current) session (of the legislature),” Letnick said. The session ends Thursday. While he would not comment on a sparsely attended “emergency” meeting on the proposed changes organized by the NDP in Kelowna last week (see story A7), Letnick said he has read every letter and email sent to him about the issue, has Norm Letnick met with many groups including the B.C. Agriculture Council, the Agricultural Land Commission and local government representatives, as well as MLAs on both sides of the legislature to gather as much input as possible. “I’ve found that most everybody wants to protect good agricultural land for future use,” said Letnick, the MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country. “But they also want to help farmers be successful.” The NDP opposes the governing Liberals plan for the ALR. The government argues that in order to help farmers, the rules for the use of some farmland in B.C. —in areas like the Kootenays, parts of the Interior and the north—should be relaxed. Critics say that will open those areas of protected Agricultural Land Reserve land to development and natural resource extraction and result in the loss of valuable farmland in B.C.

Domestic violence part of crime spike

Alistair Waters

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna’s top cop says he believes awareness about reporting domestic violence is the biggest reason the city has one the highest domestic violence rates in the country, according to Statistic Canada. But RCMP Supt. Nick Romanchuk says just because it is now easier to report, that doesn’t mean

his officers plan to ease up on tackling the issue. Romanchuck told Kelowna city council Monday one of his department’s top priorities for 2014 is a five per cent reduction in repeat victimization for domestic violence and another five per cent reduction in repeat offenders of the same crime. Last year saw a 4.5 per cent increase in that crime. But he said by

changing its approach from one of focusing on making it easier and more comfortable for victims to report to going after repeat offenders, he hopes to see the rate here drop. In addition, as part of the police effort, the Kelowna RCMP plans to add another officer to its existing one-officer anti-domestic violence unit and team up the two officers with representatives of Elizabeth Fry and Min-

istry of Child and Family Services to work out of the RCMP detachment on Doyle Avenue. “That will provide a more holistic service,” said Romanchuk. Following his presentation to council, the superintendent said he doesn’t believe the actual level of domestic violence here is greater than in other major centres. Domestic violence was just part of a spike

When potential voters tweet a picture of Christy Clark, ‘Like’ one of the campaign’s Facebook missives or share a picture of her serving hot dogs, it paves the way for a win. So said the speakers last Saturday morning at the BC Liberal convention, where the party launched its 2017 fundraising campaign, $20.17 for 2017. “It’s very Obamaesque, asking for a low number,” said Bob Rennie, party fundraising chairman. Rennie followed a series of speakers targeting the party’s social media strategy and guest Sasha Issenberg, author of The Victory Lab. Issenberg’s message: Keep it positive. “I think there’s often this impulse to do the sort of begging (for votes) and I think we have a lot of evidence that doesn’t work,” he said. He suggested positive energy actually does win elections, as does demonstrating for voters that their peers are voting, efTHE PARTY fectively modeling the BORROWED $3 kind of behaviour a camMILLION TO WIN paign wants constituents to repeat. THE ELECTION AND From Rennie’s storHAS NOW PAID ies, it appears an upbeat THE INVESTMENT approach helped the LibOFF. erals find their last win, against all odds in the polls. “Who would have thought that ‘the other party’ could have won the election?” he said, noting he was nearly mocked by the Globe and Mail’s reporter when he predicted a majority for his party the morning of the election. The Liberal campaign was recently featured on Facebook—the only political campaign, other than U.S. President Barack Obama’s, the social media site has ever turned the spotlight on. Social media is clearly the Liberal medium of choice for the next run. The party launched its new responsive website last week, capable of adjusting to any platform, and encouraged convention delegates to share Facebook and Twitter snippets—and share often. The party borrowed $3 million to win the election and has now paid the investment off. Characterizing it as “quite possibly the best money ever spent in B.C. politics,” Rennie said the 2017 campaign is counting on building a continual stream of small donations. Some 40 per cent of the delegates in the room were new to the convention and the group was told their actions throughout the course of these weekends do shape policy. Of the resolutions passed during the Penticton Liberal convention in 2011, 73 per cent made it into legislation and 26 per cent were included in the platform.

Mussels were the only environmental issue on the table Saturday at a convention focused heavily on the economy, particularly in northeastern B.C. where the liquid natural gas industry was said to be booming. A resolution targeted at harmonizing the prov-

incial and federal environmental approval processes passed unanimously. “I think this issue is important to all of British Columbia because it’s key to developing our natural resource potential,” said the delegate presenting it on behalf of two Prince George ridings. Only resolutions on developing an affordable housing strategy and creating a mental health campus of care seemed to generate much debate in a session that flowed reasonably seamlessly from

issue to issue. The afternoon wrapped up with the arrival of Premier Christy Clark who hailed their 2013 election victory a vote for a brighter future for the children of this province. Predictably, her speech focused heavily on finding that bright future in LNG exploration, the potential of selling B.C.’s resources to new Asian markets, and culminated in a rousing cheer for the delegates from the northeast.

Bernard Avenue paving phase nears completion Bernard Avenue, from St. Paul Street to Pandosy Street, including the Ellis Street and Pandosy Street intersections, will be closed today and most of tomorrow to through-traffic for its final layer of paving. The main downtown street is scheduled to re-open Wednesday, May 28, at 6 p.m. This schedule is subject to change, as paving is weather dependant and precipitation could cause delays. Kelowna city hall says sidewalks will remain open and businesses will remain accessible to pedestrians during the work. The truck route will be rerouted temporarily to Gordon Drive. Traffic control personnel will be directing motorists and pedestrians. All transit routes into and out of the Queensway transit station will continue as usual, with minor downtown routing adjustments. Go to bctransit.com/regions/ kel for more information about transit. The city is planning to re-open Bernard Avenue in its entirety at 4 p.m., Friday, May 30. The road, from Richter Street to Abbott Street, has undergone a $14.3-million renovation over the last 18 months. The work was done in four phases with the final phase currently being wrapped up.

Peachland attractions requires leap of faith Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

ZipZone Adventures’ newest attraction has taken the fear of heights to a new level. The Leap of Faith gets adventure-seekers to climb an 80-foot pole, which sits on the edge of a 300-foot canyon. Once at the top, participants can jump from the edge of the platform and enjoy a 20-foot free fall before a safety device kicks in and slowly brings them back down. “It’s going to be, I think far and away, the scariest thing that anybody has ever done,” said ZipZone president Kevin Bennett. “It is a genuinely frightening experience, and that’s what ZipZone is all about.” Bennett said he thought of the concept while attending a trade show in Orlando. “I’m constantly looking around for new adventure activities to do; we’ve looked at a number of different things that we can do in this canyon,” said Bennett. “I saw this device and immediately went: ‘Yep, I know what I can do with that.’ “As far as I know, we’re the only people in the world to have de-

Reported gunshots leads to an arrest Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Mounties don’t often rely on serendipity, but that’s exactly what allowed them to apprehend someone for an outstanding warrant Monday afternoon. At around 1 p.m., March 26, Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of gunshots at 1370 Glenmore Rd., a home the police are all too familiar with. With their guns drawn, responding RCMP called out the eight residents who were inside, one-by-one so they could enter, explained Const. Kris Clark. The seemingly high-stakes action took place over the course of an hour and a half, while a portion of road was shut down to passersby, and news cameras focused on their every move from the golf course across the street. When all inside had exited the home, the RCMP entered, and found a treasure trove of unusual possessions.“There was one firearm, a machete, and a couple other firearm-related items,” said Clark. No one was injured, which is in all likelihood due to the fact that there probably weren’t any shots fired. Not at the residence, anyway. “We believe, or it’s very likely, that the shots were fired across the road at the golf course, from a starting pistol that was firing blanks,” he said. The fact that the gunshot complaint came in about an address that was “known to police” ramped up the perceived threat, and that gave the police the powers to call everyone out of their home and enter as they saw fit.

The Leap of Faith. All climbers wear harnesses and are connected to an auto-belay device. If they slip, or want to take a break, the device will hold their weight to prevent them from falling. The pole features two sets of climbing grips, which were created by Kelowna-based Red Point Climbing Holds. Novice climbers are encouraged to use all of the grips, while more experienced climbers can challenge themselves by only using the orange holds. Once at the top of the attraction, a ZipZone staff member connects the guest’s harness to a quick jump device for the free fall canyon jump. Bennett said it will likely take the average climber three to five minutes to ascend the pole. “Anyone can do it, but it is a very nerve-wracking experience. “I think it’s a mental challenge, and that’s really what we’re offering people: The ability to be terrified in a safe environment.” The ZipZone president admitted he has yet to complete The Leap of

Monsanto march protest staged in Kelowna Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Hundreds of Kelowna residents gathered Saturday at Parkinson Recreation Centre to call for a permanent boycott of genetically modified organisms and harmful chemicals. Participants in this year’s march, which was one of 400 held around the world, held signs reading things like “Poison on our tables should be on the labels” or “No Frankenfood for me.” Protest participants aired their concerns about Monsanto, a giant agricultural company that’s the leading producer of genetically engineered seeds. To get in the mood for marching, speakers took to the mic and spoke about what they view to be a threat to public health. Among their ranks was Heidi Osterman, who

Heidi Osterman started with a few words about Roundup, which she called “Monsanto’s darling.” The herbicide, which has the active ingredient glyphosate, is used by both people in their backyards and farmers in their fields. Despite its widespread application, Roundup is regularly named as the culprit behind a multitude of social and medical ills, and Osterman wasn’t shy about her views on the chemical. “Roundup is killing people all over the world,” she said. According to her research, the chemical is being used in Yakima, Wash., to get rid of algae, and it’s causing serious birth defects. But, she said threats to public health aren’t limited to Monsanto.

Osterman pointed to Okanagan Specialty Fruit, which immediately sparked a chorus of boos. The B.C. company has applied for government approval to sell a genetically modified apple, called the Arctic Apple. The fruit doesn’t brown for 15 to 18 days after being cut. The company silences the browning gene by inserting new genetic material into the apple’s DNA. The GM apple will look fresh, even when it’s not, but Osterman said the tweaks to the genetics of the apple create a greater need for pesticides. That among other things has prompted a number of retailers to boycott the fruit, she said, noting that “even McDonald’s won’t take it.” She added that B.C. farmers are also on the defensive, and intend to file a class action lawsuit as soon as an Arctic Apple tree is planted within “five miles of any orchard.” Despite the seriousness of the topic being aired, there was also a great deal of positivity from those involved, feeling they were creating change.

THE Walsh family—Tiffany, Zach and their daughter Elvira, 6 (top photo)— were among the participants (lower photo) at the worldwide March Against Monsanto protest held on Saturday. ter Elvira, 6, attended the march in bee regalia, showing their concern for dwindling bee populations. According to Zach, however, the heart of the issue is knowledge.

“We believe in labelling so people can make informed decisions,” he said, noting that he does not want to see our collective food source sold off to big corporations.

House occupant search leads to one arrest Police from A5 “The house has a history for us, it gives us exigent cause to enter without a warrant,” he said. “Our purpose was to go in and make sure that everyone was safe.” If they’d come across something of a highly criminal nature, they’d have to go back and get a warrant to continue investigating. All the people who were taken into custody at the scene have been released, except one who was wanted on an outstanding warrant. Another man faces possible firearms charges pending further investigation. As for the golf course, a call to the pro shop was made and apparently, no one was in the least bit ruffled about what was happening across the street.

NDP’s hope for public outcry over ALR changes falls short Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Despite thousands of Instagram photos (#felfies), emails and tweets logged to protest changes to the Agricultural Land Commission and the farmland reserve it protects, the NDP agriculture critic fully expects Bill 24 to pass this week. Nicholas Simons and fellow NDP MLA Lana Popham staged an emergency meeting in Kelowna last Thursday, saying the Bill 24 Amendments to the Agricultural Land Commission could pass as early as Thursday unless someone takes a stand. Letnick told the Capital News on Friday that the legislation would be adopted this week. Simons said he has never seen such an onslaught of resistance on a single issue and urged residents and farmers to make their feelings known at the provincial Liberal convention last weekend.

“We’re hoping that if we don’t convince the government to withdraw this legislation that we’ll at least create enough awareness within the general public that they aren’t going to get away with what they thought they were going to get away with,” he said, handing the mic to his colleague. Popham was less circumspect. “As far as I’m concerned Bill 24 basically says,‘You know what? You better think of something better to do that pays better,’ and I think that’s despicable,” she said. Noting the legislation caters to the development lobby of Liberal MLA Bill Bennett, who drafted it, she claimed to have crashed a meeting he held with farmers where he said his constituents have never liked the 40-year-old reserve and he listens to his constituents. She sees that viewpoint as slap in the face for growers of all stripes throughout B.C.. “This is the window that we’ve been waiting for as agri-

culture, as farmers, but also as eaters because we’re now moving back to where we came from—which is the local food movement,” said Popham. “…People believe in local food; they believe in consultation; and they believe in democracy.” She told the room the Liberal MLAs are lying when they say stakeholders were consulted, they’re lying about the real purpose of the legislation and ignoring the wishes of the electorate. Earlier in the day, Popham released confidential correspondence from Agricultural Land Commission chairman Richard Bullock, a Kelowna orchardist, to the deputy agriculture minister, which “basically discounts all arguments for Bill 24,” in her reading. The letter confirms that there wasn’t any consultation with the ALC as late as December and goes into a detailed explanation of the flaws in each section of the legislation.

It highlights concerns over the move back to decision making by regional panels, in particular, and the fact that there is plenty of prime agricultural land in areas now deemed zone two and given less protections. “This has been a complete sham right from the beginning,” she said. “…The passion I have around this bill is so huge, and the prospects of what it will do to us in the future, is something that I can’t stand by and watch.… “For me, Bill 24 is a hill to die on. I don’t know what it’s going to take, (but) it might just kill me.” Both politicians said the bill effectively gets it backward, saving land in the south when climate change suggests it will be the north of the province where crops are more likely to thrive moving forward. “We don’t need a bill for agriculture, we need strong agricultural policy,” said Popham.

The NDP MLAs urged residents of Kelowna, farmers and constituents of both the current and former agriculture ministers Norm Letnick and Steve Thomson to turn the tables on the legislation momentum for approval. “This is a heavy-hitting town,” said Popham. “…It’s you that can make the difference. We are doing our best in the legislature, but it’s the public who make the difference.” The pitch didn’t sit with BC Fruit Growers’ Association president Fred Steele, who said he believes Letnick has agriculture’s best interest at heart and he doesn’t want to see the bill thrown out. While the fruit growers do not agree with dividing agricultural land into two zones, protecting some land more than others, Steele stressed the farmers want a future for agriculture with vision more than they want to dicker over the changes proposed. “We understand that cit-

Agriculture minister says ALR review is done ALR from A1 The government wants the ALR divided into two zones, with the first, including the Okanagan, the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island getting more protection from non-agriculture uses than agricultural land in the rest of the province. But the move has ignited a firestorm of protest across B.C. Letnick said that level of protest appears, in his mind, to have dropped off in recent weeks. He said he still gets emails and letters opposing the changes but not nearly as many as he did when he first took

over the ministry portfolio from Pat Pimm, who stepped down for health reasons. Letnick said the proposed changes were originally brought forward by both the agriculture ministry and Bill Bennett, the cabinet minister handling the government’s “core review.” Shortly after taking over as agriculture minister, Letnick said he would consider tinkering with Bill 24 or could even drop it. But Bennett quickly responded publicly that the bill would proceed as it was. Letnick, however, proposed his amendments to the bill, including al-

lowing the Agricultural Land Commission’s chairman, or one of its regional panels, to refer applications to the ALC’s executive committee if the chairman determined a decision could have substantial impact on the ALR. On Friday, Letnick said his amendments have been accepted by the government and will be included in what he said will be passed next week. Earlier this month he

admitted public pressure prompted his changes to what was proposed by Pimm and Bennett. “Bill 24 is also being amended to clearly outline, in priority order, the criteria the commission must consider in all landuse decisions in zone 2 (the North, Interior and Kootenays),” said Letnick earlier this month. “This priority list will begin with whether the ALC considers the proposal to meet with the

purposes of the commission, namely the preservation of agricultural land, encouraging farming and enabling farm use on agricultural land. “All other factors would follow in descending order of priority.

ies need room in order to grow because we are the ones that feed those cities. Industry also needs land because we need jobs. So it’s not a case of pitting one against the other. We need a plan. That is what is important,” said Steele. Active local NDP member Tish Lakes said the two zones may be hard to stop as placing the north in the second zone, intended to have more room to maneuver for applicants looking to trade or remove lands from ALR protections, would make it easier to drive through liquid natural gas and oil and gas pipelines. A young man from a craft brewery who did not identify himself said the lack of planning in the new agriculture bill is clear when one considers his business. Liquor laws are being changed to accommodate the growth of his industry, he said, and yet the government is threatening the very crops he’ll need to produce his beer. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

BRIEFS SCHOLARSHIP

In recognition of her commitment to her community, TD Bank Group has awarded Freya Kellet, a student at Okanagan Mission Secondary School, a TD scholarship for Community Leadership valued up to $70,000. Kellet’s passion for food security and environmental issues led her to start a school garden, which produced its first successful harvest this year. She was also instrumental in creating a three-day conference on social media and cyber bullying for her school district, which was designed to educate students, parents and teachers. Outside of school, she volunteers with a multi-sport program for disabled children and at a local care facility. As a TD scholarship recipient, Kellet will receive tuition for an accredited university or college in Canada, $7,500 a year for living expenses, summer employment within TD Bank Group for up to four years, and mentorship and networking opportunities. She will be presented with her scholarship at a ceremony today in Ottawa.  

CA RECOGNITION

Ten Kelowna chartered accountant (CA) students graduated from the CA qualification program at a ceremony held earlier this month in Vancouver. The local CA designation recipients include Meghan Amann (Crowe MacKay LLP), Ameila Ashraf (MNP LLP), Ruth Fukumoto (Podollan’s Construction Ltd.), Cooper Harrison (Grant Thornton LLP), Tori Keiffer (MNP LLP), Marli Kostka (MNP LLP), Tyler Krenz (Grant Thornton LLP), Rachel McAllister (KPMG LLP), Jamie Schram (Andrew Tse Inc.), and Graham Moir (Crowe MacKay LLP). “These students have earned their CA designation by successfully completing a rigorous and competitive academic program, focused on business and accounting competencies,” said Richard Rees, CEO of the Chartered Professional Accountants of BC Joint Venture and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C. “We are very proud of them.”

Industry leaders back OC trades complex Owners of some of the most established Central Okanagan businesses focused on the trades are now adding their weight to support the new $33-million Trades Training Complex under construction at Okanagan College. Representatives from companies as diverse as automotive dealers to steel fabricators have joined the Okanagan College Foundation’s volunteer campaign team, says campaign chair Dennis Gabelhouse. “We wanted to find experienced industry leaders who are committed to elevating trades careers in this region, and we found them,” Gabelhouse said. “Over the decades many hundreds of Okanagan College’s trades students have worked in their shops so this group knows precisely how important it is to have skilled trades people—especially ones they can count on locally.” Joining the team as sector chairs, alongside Okanagan College instructors, are: • Methal Abougoush (owner and general manager, Boyd Autobody & Glass) • Hugo Cookson (general manager, Cookson Motors Ltd.) • Brian Crowley (branch manager, PrairieCoast Equipment) • Jason Friesen (vice-president, Voyager RV) • Graeme Jenkins (manager, Enterprise Steel Fabricators Ltd.) • Oscar Krueger (owner, Krueger Electrical Ltd.) • Adam Rich (general manager, Sentes Automotive-Lexus of Kelowna) • Cordelle Rich (general manager, Sentes Automotive-Kelowna Infiniti Nissan) • Debbie Robert (retired co-owner, L.

Does age play a factor in following entrepreneurial path? T oday I want to talk about a very important segment of our population—seniors. Seniors (and remember, we are all aging) have surged to the forefront of the entrepreneurial world lately, a phenomena called “seniorpreneur” or “greypreneur.” The world around us continues to get greyer. According to the United Nations, the number of people age 60 and over could reach two billion by 2050. Seniors have become big business folks, as a whole new market of products and services has surfaced targeted to the specific needs and interests of older people. This two-sided phoenomena has posed some interesting and exciting opportunity channels for

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young the adventurous. On the one side, tremendous volume of aging customers. On the other, opportunities for seniors to become seniorpreneurs, serving their own population age group. While taking on the task of exploring some research tidbits for you, I stumbled on two headlines that really caught my attention in this regard: “In Life’s Second Act, Some Take On a New Role—Entrepreneur, “ and “Entrepreneurship After Retirement

—What’s Age Got To Do With It” (reminds me of a Tina Turner hit song ) These words really sum up for me a message of hope, of faith that our aging population have discovered concrete options that can add productivity and joy to their declining years, for their families and their communities. One article I came across stated this “seniors boom” is reflective of more people 55 or older who seem to be rejecting the traditional model of puttering around a garden or golf course. Many, however, have not simply hoped for a great second act, but carefully planned, the article espouses, their transition from careers to a large dollop of serendipity to arrive at the thresh-

old of an entrepreneurial venture. Linda Wiener, an aging issues expert for Monster.com, a jobs search website, said recently: “It’s like a giant sea swell peaking under the radar. There are people who don’t want an hourly job, but wonder what they are going to do for the next 30 years.” No longer are the rigours of entrepreneurship meant for the young and the restless. Youthful energy has been dethroned by experience and pragmatism. Increasingly, seniors close to retirement are attempting yet another life change. And through their entrepreneurial opportunity portal, they’re making their mark and a true difference Why? In part because seniors today have some level of prosperity and affluence, and minimize financial risk by not be-

ing as impatient as our younger generation sometimes can be in waiting for a positive outcome with a new venture. Also, seniors bring a wealth of life experience combined with a sense of security, flexibility and—like our Okanagan wine—just get better with age. Many seniors believe that launching an entrepreneurial venture is a progression of their careers, a new challenge. Today’s generation of older Canadians are healthier than their parents and will live longer, and are better educated. The research reflects how older entrepreneurs can outshine their younger counterparts in several areas making the self-employment option pretty attractive. And seniors have stronger life track records to the degree that human resource experts suggest

highlighting a senior’s entrepreneur experience, talent and accomplishments as a basis for marketing campaigns. Seniors may also have an easier time borrowing money or raising capital because they have had the time to establish credit and build financial resources. Coupled with a fair share in possession of adequate computer skills, a home-based entrepreneurial venture presents some sound logic. While there is a relatively substantial and growing body of research that looks at entrepreneurship in general, the senior entrepreneur and his/her role in the context of the “new economy” has been relatively unexplored. To me, this opens the door to tremendous opportunity for research and new venture creation as seniors and those committed to working with

and adding value to the lives of our aging world envision new venture creation via entrepreneurship as a wonderful journey to embark upon. There, I have said it today with heart, that many of you reading this column can contemplate the entrepreneurial self-employment option for the next 20 years of your journey. The Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society and a plethora of other business service providers are here to help seniors get started. And still, I have a feeling you will still find some time for puttering in your rose garden and a few rounds of golf with a glass of our wonderful Okanagan wine.

Political storms break for premier

T

he BC Liberals were all smiles and happy backslapping as they gathered at the Delta Grand in Kelowna for the party’s annual convention. Riding a wave of party member hysteria after the NDP fumbled a significant election poll that ultimately cost Adrian Dix his job, Premier Christy Clark had reason to be optimistic. While it continues to be aggravating how the Liberals position themselves as the no tax increase party when the cost

of government services, from health care to car insurance to our hydro bills, keep increasing, 2014 has so far been a good year for Clark. Our Westside-Kelowna MLA has been out of the public spotlight for some time now, with even the proposed changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve failing to subdivide her government. To her credit for appointing him as agriculture minister and to Kelowna-Lake Country Norm Letnick for how he

has handled a contentious task as his first ministerial duty, the initial public backlash seems to have disappeared. Teachers are embattled in yet another difficult negotiating session with the government’s provincial bargaining agent, yet Clark just keeps on smiling for the photo ops, not being held directly accountable for troubles in our schools. Clark continues to send out the sound bytes about how glory days economically will be here again when the liquified natur-

al gas industry boom in northeast B.C. takes off. The relentless marketing of that message seems to have worn out those who think LNG prospects may be a tad overblown. While Clark may not have had the Liberal rank-and-file membership unified behind her heading into the last provincial election, it seems clear for now that she has weathered the storm internally within her party and silenced those who were discontented. W inning elections has a way of doing that.

Maybe even before the But its hit-’em-where-it-hurts threat is carried out. strategy of rotating strikes that affect So, if the hardline rhetoric sounds elementary and secondary students in familiar, it should.

Since the former NDP government established province-wide bargaining when it comes to collective agreements for teachers more than 20 years ago, there have been three legislated contracts, one legislated “cooling-off” period and just one negotiated contract. And all of those have been punctuated by a war of words between the teachers and the bargaining agent for the school districts or the government. Despite the fact these are educated people, the folks on both sides of this issue—past and present—seem unable to learn from past mistakes. The system is broken but neither side is willing to try and fix it. They just want what they want and are willing to walk off the job in the teachers’

case or lock out their employees in the school boards/government’s case, to get it. In the current dispute, both sides have their supporters and detractors. But for all the bluster coming from the Minister of Education and the president of the BCTF, the public hears one thing—when it comes to getting what they want, both sides will use the education of children as a weapons. Sure, both sides say they doing it for the kids. But how committed to that are they if they won’t fix a broken system that has been proven time and time again over 20 year to not work? This time around, as in the past, parents, have to helplessly look on as their kids are used as pawns in a re-

curring labour dispute that plays out every few years, watching as schools are closed, teachers strike, school districts lock out and the kids, who have no say in the matter, are directly affected by adults who do. There’s no doubt teachers are adversely affected by the constantly occurring labour disputes too. But they knew that they signed up for—or at least should have, given the aforementioned history of contract negotiations in this province. So why not bring in one of the very skilled labour relations mediators we have in this province, get a deal done and then fix the system rather than waiting another few years to go through it all again?

▼ TEACHERS’ STRIKE

Strike should not be teachers’ only option To the editor: I am in Grade 9 at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School in West Kelowna. I am writing to discuss the current situation concerning teachers going on strike. These strikes are primarily caused by disagreements between the teachers and the government. However, it is seriously affecting the students. In the past, to be plainly honest, I have never had much experience concerning politics. I suppose naivety is a common trait amongst youth; however, recently I have taken a keen interest in something that is difficult to overlook, especially when it is directly affecting me and those around me. I have researched information to help me to understand the reasons behind this and previous strikes. My understanding is that teachers are finding it difficult to cope with the large class numbers that they have. Currently, for class sizes of over 30 students, the teacher would have to be paid extra. In the average class at my school there are 29 or so students; basically right up to the limit of how many students the teachers can teach without being paid extra. Teachers want the right to be able to determine how many

students are in each class, have been taken are ruin- about not having teachers as well as how many who ing much loved aspects help at lunch time, and the have special needs.

media seems to be making it appear as if the teachers have no regard for the students. Well if this is so, why are there so many extra-curricular activities in the first place? Why are there so many teachers willing to run after school and lunchtime clubs even when they get no income from it? And why do they want smaller classes? It’s because they care about giving the students the attention they need and deserve and they want to ensure that their students have an environment in which they can learn, rather than just being ‘taught at.’ So, rather than having this ongoing fire between two groups that are both supposed to want to help create a good education system, a resolution needs to be reached together, with the students’ interests at heart at all times when decisions are made. Thank you for considering my thoughts and opinions and taking the time to read my letter. I know that education is important to everyone so I hope these flames can be extinguished once and for all so we can all get on with our wonderful learning experience. Frances Smalldridge, West Kelowna

believe the quality of the public school is too low. Thus one wonders, is there a hidden project to kill the quality of school education funds? When I listen to Peter Fassbender, Minister Of Education. He tells us: “taxpayers do not want to pay for education.”

[Housing Sales Momentum Still Spreading, May 23 Capital News’ New Home Showcase.] How quickly people forget the crucial financial situation the world plummeted into, and return back to the behaviour that

Home ownership is not an entitlement for all, and many factors need to

be considered when making such a huge financial decision. If the rates were to suddenly return to where they should be, how many will find themselves in turmoil, looking for help to bail them out of the dilemma of their own creation? Think before you buy!   Donna Samson, West Kelowna

Kelowna conservation officers had to euthanize a cougar this week when it starting picking off animals on a June Springs Road farm. “A livestock producer who’s a resident of the greenbelt area in East Kelowna called our Report All Poachers and Polluters line and said that over the past two weeks he’d lost two lambs and he suspected cougars were the cause,” said conservation officer Ken Owens. Then, some time between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, a cougar jumped through a window in his barn, killed a ewe, and dragged it outside. “Sheep livestock are very similar in shape and smell to a cougar’s natural prey, but more vulnerable,” said Owens. On the flip side, cougars are intelligent animals and they learn through positive enforcement. So, when the cat started dipping into a pool of passive prey, it became clear that it wouldn’t stop. “We had to put the cat down,” said Owens. “Relocation does not work. If we tranquillized it and moved it 200 to 300 kilometres away it would make its way back.” The cougar was a mature male, three to four years old, around 160 lbs and quite healthy, like many of the cats in the Okanagan. And like it, other cougars will likely head back to the farm unless something is done to more securely house livestock. “We will work with the livestock owner so they learn to better protect livestock to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” he said. “We are very blessed in Kelowna to have lots of greenspace, park and good ungulate populations.” Those factors contribute to a healthy cougar population. “There are 4,000 to 5,000 cougars (in B.C.) and each can have two to five kittens,” he said. “Their population is very-stable to increasing.” It’s a fact that Owens said enriches the value of the valley. “It’s a rewarding experience to be walking in the Gillard area, and witness a cougar,” he said. Cougar attacks, he pointed out, are extremely rare due in large part to the fact that humans don’t look or smell like the cat’s natural prey. That said, treating with them caution and making a report to conservation officers when they encroach on residential spaces is still important. Last year 140 calls were made in the Kelowna area, and only one cat had to be put down. Anyone with information is asked to call the RAPP line at 1-877-952(MJHPTZY\JJPQ^Ć^JWX 7277.

Tunes Through Times - A Spring Musical Written by: Abby F. Grade 6 “Tunes through Times” was an amazing journey through the ages of music. Between 1960 and the 2000’s, there were many great hits that the intermediates at BME performed beautifully. With all of the lights, colours and sounds, not only did the concert bring entertainment to the crowd but the students all had a blast getting set up and rehearsing. It was also an excellent way for the intermediates to learn about the past and really understand the ways of music. Whether they were a performer or a stage hand, everyone learned quite a lot about the changes in music and all of the latest styles of the decades. Over all, it was a performance that nobody will forget.

Justice Prevails Written by: Rhianna A. Grade 6

GrAde 6 sTUdenTs

Hi, I am a grade 6 student from Black Mountain Elementary. We recently went to Kelowna’s courthouse and it was a blast. Before going we learned about the justice system including the burden of proof, judicial independence, the different types of court and the types of trials. On our field trip we watched two live trials and watched a judge sentence two criminals. In the afternoon, we went into an empty provincial court room and had a mock trial. In our trial we prosecuted “Peter Pan” for kidnapping Wendy, John and Peter from the Darling family. In the end we learned firsthand that justice is being upheld in our courts today.

Kokanee Monitor Club Black Mountain’s Grade 4-6 Kokanee monitors released the Kokanee into Mission Creek on May 20th.  The students learned about Watershed Management and they were involved in two Kokanee survival games at Mission Creek Park.  The Kokanee arrived at BME in September and the monitors took care of them, rotating through their duties on a weekly basis until their release. The students helped with weekly water exchanges, chemical and tank health checks, and feeding the Kokanee four times a day. This year we had over 70 students involved

in the program.  We wish our Koknee luck as they are released into the natural environment. 

Care and Make it Fair Written by: Malia, Brady, Abby, and Sabreen Grade 5 Team The Black Mountain Care and Make it Fair 2014 team is helping to raise money for Free the Children’s Brick by Brick campaign. At the BME Spring Concert, the Care and Make it Fair team decided to raise money by asking for a

small donation. $189.70 was raised at the door by simply asking for change or bills as people entered our school gym. Our entire school has helped raise approximately $2000.00. Black Mountain, Chief Tomat, and Mount Boucherie students are all working together to raise $10,000 to build a school in Ghana this year. As a group we have raised approximately $7000.00. We’re almost at our goal! Students wish to thank everyone who donated to our campaign and also to thank Ms. Detjen, for taking them to this year’s Care and Make it Fair workshop. We hope to continue to receive more donations throughout the rest of the school year. sAbreen, Malia, Abby, Brady. Left to Right

Battle of the Books

Black Mountain Elementary Battle of the Books’ teams participated in the Zone finals held at Rutland Elementary in April.  All of our teams fought hard battles with our grade 6 team losing a tough tie-breaker for third place. The top three teams of The Zone battle move on to a District battle. Battle students begin the literacy program in September having to read a total 9 books.  Participants read the 9 books many times, write story element summaries on the books and participate in mock battles to prepare for the Zone battle.   Teams of three plus an alternate are chosen to represent each school. Congratulations to all of BME's teams for showing great team spirit in the competition.

The Cougar

Container Gardening Written by: Kobe Y. and Megan V. Grade 3

A Fairy Tale Written by: Cole Grade 2

GrAde 3 clAss

Once upon a time there was a cougar. It lived on a big snowy mountain. He was very lonely. Every day he would go for a run through a cave, over a ditch, and up onto his favourite tree. He could see everything from there. One day he was watching the river go by when a bald eagle came flying toward him. An orca in the ocean had heard that the cougar wanted a friend, so he magically made the bald eagle out of a wave! When the bald eagle was right beside him, the cougar asked him if he wanted to be his best friend and the bald eagle said "Yes!!" They became best friends and lived cole happily ever after.

Have you ever planted a garden? We have! In Mrs. Thibert’s grade 3 class at Black Mountain Elementary we planted gardens! Each of us planted beans, carrots, radishes, and lettuce. Two weeks ago we sowed the seeds, and some are growing big, some are small, and some are still not yet growing. It was awesome planting them. First we had to collect clear plastic salad containers, and then our teacher put soil in them. It took only a few days for the first few plants to emerge. We were so excited. The first thing to grow was the radishes. We learned that soaking beans before planting them makes them grow faster. We also did an experiment to see the xylem in celery. It carries water from the roots to the leaves. Did you know that plants breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen? It is fascinating! Seeing our plants grow was spectacular. Gardening is always fun. You should try it!

With a stellar final season of major junior hockey and a Canadian Hockey League award to his credit, Jordon Cooke has done all he can to garner the attention of professional teams. Now the 20-year-old former Kelowna Rockets’ netminder will just sit back and wait to see which direction his career will take. “I’m hoping the award will lead to some pro offerings…we’ll see what happens in the next month or so,” said the 5-foot-10, 177-pound stopper. “It’s definitely the dream of every kid to play pro and I’m no different. “But if it doesn’t happen, then I’ll go to school and take advantage of the WHL’s scholarship program. It’s been a goal of mine to get an education, too.” Although Cooke didn’t realize his ultimate goal of winning a WHL title this season, the native of Leduc, AB concluded his junior career in style, winning the Canadian Hockey League’s goaltender of the year award. In his fourth and final season in Kelow-

KELOWNA Rockets’ grad Jordon Cooke is the Canadian Hockey League’s goaltender of the year. na, Cooke won 39 games and posted a 2.28 goals against average with four shutouts. Cooke was in London Saturday, the site of the Memorial Cup, to accept one of major junior hockey’s highest honours. “It’s pretty unbelievable, to get the acknowledgement is very special,” said Cooke. “Growing up in Leduc, just getting to play in the WHL was the dream. Winning this (award) is more than I could have ever dreamed.” As he did when he won both the Rockets’ MVP award and the

WHL goaltender of the year, Cooke was quick to credit his teammates for the latest accolades. “This award has everything to do with the team success we had,” he said. “It’s a product of the way the guys played in front of me, and they are a big reason I’m here today with this award.” Cooke and his Rockets’ teammates put together an unforgettable 201314 regular season, establishing franchise records for wins (57) and points (118) on the way to winning the overall WHL title. Head coach Ryan

Huska, who watched Cooke since his arrival in Kelowna as a raw rookie in 2010, said the 20-yearold Albertan evolved into a skilled and dependable goaltender. “Hopefully some teams will pay some attention to this award, because I think Jordon deserves the opportunity to be a professional,” Huska said. “He came to us with a lot to learn and he had to earn a spot. He was committed to working hard and turned into a good young man and very good goalie while he was with us. “At the end of the day,”

added Huska, “he was a competitor and that’s why he had success.” If a pro contract doesn’t come his way, then Cooke will entertain the potVential of playing next season in the Canada West conference—two of his preferred destinations include the University of Saskatchewan and the University of British Columbia. Meanwhile, Rockets forward Nick Merkley was a finalist for the CHL’s rookie of the year award on Saturday, but finished as a runner-up to Nikolaj Ehlers of the Halifax Mooseheads.

With their first victory of the season in the books, the Kelowna Raiders will go back to work this week in Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League action. On Thursday night at Memorial Arena, the Raiders will take on the Vernon Tigers. Face off is 7:30. The youngest team in the league, the Raiders went 0-6 to start 2014, before downing the South Okanagan Flames 13-6 last Thursday night in Kelowna.   Justin Saunders led the attack with a hat-trick, while River Lafferty added two goals and three assists and Chase Bremner had two goals and a fourpoint night. Cam McMillan notched a pair, with Kristian Snead, Brock Embury and Jordan Heinrich adding single goals. Brenden Given made 37 saves in the Kelowna net for his first career TOJLL win. “A real good team effort, easily our best 60 minutes of the season,” said Raiders coach Travis Wray. “I am real happy with the commitment and dedication to improving our play from our players. River Lafferty and Kristian Stead have been real good pickups we made two weeks ago and have improved our left side.   “Captain Kevin Hogan and Markan Ka-

tinic had strong defensive games and were key in many offensive transitions.”

SENIOR RAIDERS…

The Kelowna Raiders outshot the hometown Kamloops Rattlers 55-25 en route to an 11-10 win Friday in Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League action. Kamloops goaltender Mike Smith was brilliant in what could have been a landslide in Kelowna’s favour as they outplayed the Rattlers for three periods. Luke Bailey paced the Kelowna attack with three goals and two assists, while Cory Signe r added three goals and a helper.  Jordan Innes and Vic Wiens scored twice each and had three points, while rookie Scott Renner supplied the other goal. Gavin McIntosh led the Rattlers with a fourgoal effort. The Raiders (5-2) return to action June 6 when they visit the Armstrong Shamrocks.

KGH cardiology unit showcased Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Interior Health says patients with heart conditions in the Southern Interior will now have improved access to the highest levels of cardiac care thanks to the opening of

its new outpatient cardiac services unit at Kelowna General Hospital. “These are exciting times in cardiology at KGH,” said Dr. Kevin Pistawka, cardiology division chief at the hospital. While the unit has been operating for about a

month, Pistawka took the media on a tour Friday, highlighting the expanded space and improved technology now available in the unit, which is located close to the hospital’s new emergency department. The treatments offered in the unit will be

procedures where patients can typically go home the same day. Relocated from a number of different sites scattered around the hospital, the labs and clinics in the new unit will continue to be busy, say hospital officials. The outpatient cardiac unit sees around 63,000 patient visits per year and about 2,800 cardiac angiogram procedures last year alone. It also provides 53,000 ECGs per year, 3,500 treadmill tests, handles 9,700 cardiac echo patients and 4,000 pacemaker patients. Interior Health began performing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs, or angioplasties) at KGH in November 2009. A cardiac surgery program began performing open heart surgery in December 2012.

The cost of the new outpatient unit, part of the $381-million IHSC project, was $12.3 million. The province is providing $296 million for the IHSC project, with another $85 million provided by the regional hospital district. The new unit increas-

es the available space for outpatient cardiac services at KGH by four times, from about 557-squaremetres in the old locations to 2,230-square-metres in the new area. It includes cardiac care clinics for programs such as RACE, ECG/Holter, pacemaker, atrial fibrillation and cardiac echo, as well as the regional cardiac catheterization lab,

with two new procedure rooms and space for a future third room. The outpatient cardiac services unit was previously housed in multiple locations in the Strathcona and Dr. Walter Anderson buildings at KGH.

One of the reasons he gave for the sharp increase in the first part of this year was a robbery crime spree by a group of young teens who targeted stores using knives, replica weapons and bear spray. He said police were surprised to discover the perpetrators were as young as 13, 14 and 15. Calling them kids from good homes, he said it appeared they got together and decided to commit the crimes for “something to do.”

He declined to call them an organized youth gang, but agreed they were a gang of youths. The young offenders have now been caught, he said, and that should help reduce the amount of crime in the city. Included in the police priorities for this year, are five per cent increases in charges against prolific offenders, organized crime “targets,” a 10 per cent decrease in Criminal Code charges, and five per cent increases in breach charges, street check files— when suspicious individ-

The RCMP superintendent also wants to see a five per cent hike in the number of volunteer hours and events aimed at youths, as well as its domestic violence reduction goals. Romanchuck said when it comes to road safety he wants to see a five per cent reduction in motor vehicle crashes and a five per cent increase in charges for impaired driving. Prior to Romanchuck’s presentation, council heard from the

civilian director of the provincial Independent Investigation’s Office, which investigates incidents where serious harm occurs to a member of the public and involves a police officer in B.C. Richard Rosenthal outlined how his agency works and said his officers are currently investigating a police pursuit where a pedestrian was seriously injured.

She loved the people she worked with and the difference she made to the patients who needed her expertise. Throughout her 35 years in the physiotherapy field, Yvonne helped countless individuals on their paths to wellness. The patients and her co-workers made her love going to work every day. The relationships made with co-workers throughout the years were very dear to Yvonne. Yvonne also loved to play! She was active in almost every sport one can think of: Tennis, Badminton, Softball, Cycling, and Skiing, to name a few. The world was her playground. She cherished the outdoors and could often be found hiking and camping with friends and family. She treasured music, and played the guitar and piano. A family favourite, “A Little Bit of Lefse” was often heard at family gatherings. A Celebration of Yvonne’s life will be held on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 1:00pm at Christ Lutheran Church, 2091 Gordon Drive. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the BC Cancer Foundation at www.bccancerfoundation.com or to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation – Rehabilitation Services Fund at www.kghfoundation.com. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

BUTLER, LOIS CARRIE (NEE BRANDON) Born on November 28, 1917 in Cannington, Ontario and passed away on May 22, 2014 in Kelowna, BC at the age of 96 years. She is survived by her daughter Marcia (Eric) of Blaine, Washington; two sons: Bill of Aurora, ON, Kip of Kelowna, BC and six grandchildren. Predeceased by her husband Dr. Mel Butler in 1979. Lois was a devoted wife and mother, homemaker, mathematician, physicist, school teacher, college instructor, tutor and musician. She grew up in Cannington and Galt, Ontario, attending Galt Collegiate Institute, winning scholarships to the University of Toronto, where she graduated with a degree in Honours Mathematics and Physics in 1940. She was one of only two women in her class of 48 math and physics students. After graduating, she worked as an investment analyst and later operated a radon plant for cancer therapy and monitored radiation exposure for the Ontario Department of Health, Division of Cancer Control. In 1945, Lois and Mel were married in Banff, Alberta and moved to Kelowna in 1946. They loved Kelowna and Okanagan Lake and were both very active in the local community over the years. After starting her family, Lois taught for many years at Immaculata High School and Okanagan University College. She later managed the Canadian School of Ballet of Kelowna. At the same time, she was very active in the BC Association of Physics Teachers, a Provincial Director and founding member of the Kelowna, University Women’s Club, President of the Kelowna Figure Skating Club and Lion’s Club Auxiliary and served as a director and member of many local organizations, including the Central Okanagan Women’s Liberal Commission, Project Literacy SocietyKelowna, the Catholic Women’s League, the Kelowna Art Gallery and the Mayor’s Committee for Theatre and Performing Arts. Lois loved homemaking, reading, music, playing bridge, gardening and excelled at all her chosen pursuits. She was very fond and proud of her many students and her home on the lake. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends. The Butler family wishes to thank all the generous caregivers who have assisted Lois in recent years, including the Tender Care Cottage, the Kelowna General Hospital, Dr. Jan McIntosh and the Kelowna Hospice Society and staff. Prayers will be offered on Thursday, May 29th at 7:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.

If you feel you have the right environment for this great guy, come down and spend some time getting to know him.

TOFFEE ID#334199

YOUNG ADULT LAB RETRIEVER SPAYED FEMALE

Toffee has tons of energy and is just s “loveable lug”. Her breed are great family dogs, they just want to play, act goofy and know that they are loved and understood. With maturity and basic obedience classes Toffee will blossom into a beautiful faithful companion. She is good with other dogs, so if you have room in your family for a new addition, ask the staff to set up a meet and greet with her.

SILLY

SHADOW

ID#332450

SENIOR DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR SPAYED FEMALE

Silly is quite shy right now being in her temporary home. She can hardly wait to have her own family to warm up to and become her goofy silly self. She deserves a ‘forever home’ where she can live out the remainder of her days, happy and well cared for. Please come down and spend some time getting to know her.

YOUNG ADULT GERMAN SHEPHERD NEUTERED MALE

D E T P ADO D E T P O AD

Shadow is a very large boy who loves life (maybe a bit too much) and is in need of new guardians who can help him with his boundary issues and manners. He is super smart, has amazing potential, is good with dogs, adults and teenage children (doesn’t know his own strength). If you adopt Shadow, you must be committed to ongoing obedience training & lots of exercise to keep him mentally & physically happy. Please ask the staff to set up a meeting with him.

SENIOR BRITTANY SPANIEL SPAYED FEMALE

Tina loves children, cats, dogs and car rides. She totally deserves a retirement home where she can shower her new guardians with love & devotion. She is just a happy-golucky girl, very easy to get along with and would make a super walking partner. Please ask the staff for a private viewing with this wonderful, mid-size young at heart girl. You will be happy you did.
