Municipalities looking for rail info

Hazardous goods: local governments cite the need for improved communication. By Lachlan Labere

an unattended freight train in LacMégantic on July 6, 2013. The accident resulted in explosions killing 47 people and destroying 40 buildings. Since then, local governments, including Salmon Arm and Sicamous council, have expressed an interest in knowing what’s being shipped in the hundreds of railcars that come through their communities on a daily basis. Sicamous council has been particularly vocal as of late, calling for greater transparency and co-operation from rail operator, CP Rail.

A recent derailment in Revelstoke has further emphasized the need for more co-operation and communication betwee local governments, emergency service providers and a rail company that operates in the region. Awareness, or a lack thereof, of what’s being transported on Canada’s rail network came to the forefront among local governments following the disastrous derailment of

“Right now, CP seems to be giving us very little information as to what’s coming through our communities,” commented Coun. Terry Rysz. “In investigating this, they claim they don’t want to give out too much information because of the possibility of terrorist attacks. I kind of feel that’s a bit of a cop-out. “I feel we should have a manifest of some sort so that we know what the hell is going through here. We couldn’t deal with that for every train, because there’s a train coming through every 20 minutes. But

we should have some sort of general idea.” Furthermore, if a derailment should occur within the district, be it hazardous or benign, Rysz argues the municipality and its emergency responders should be at the top of CP’s “to-call” list. “CP Rail should inform, immediately, the nearby communities if there’s a derailment of some sort, whether it’s serious or not serious.

Response team in the works

Continued from front We should be first on the list to respond to,” said Rysz. Rob Girard, Revelstoke’s fire chief and emergency program co-ordinator, feels the same, especially after a Sept. 10 derailment in his community, which he first heard of when contacted by the local newspaper. “Accidents happen – it’s within that first 10 minutes that we want to be notified. Not after the fact,” said Girard, noting the derailment, involving four cars with five containers, either empty or carrying hay, occurred within several hundred metres of a trailer park. “We want to be notified right away that there’s been a train derailment in the community. Ok, we’re responding.” In response, CP spokesperson Salem Woodrow stated there were no injuries or public safety and environmental issues, and CP has its own “emergency protocols, which were immediately enacted and all safety precautions and measures were taken as we responded to the situation.” “CP’s Police Communications Centre notified the local police authority, in this case the RCMP, who then makes necessary notifications,” stated Woodrow in an email. Girard, however, says police also first learned of the incident through local media. Woodrow says CP has since “reached out to the city and we are going to look at this together.” Information of what’s being transported by rail is available, though only in a report released

one year after the fact. This confidential information is released to emergency planning officials listed with Transport Canada. Locally, that would be Shuswap Emergency Planning co-ordinator Cliff Doherty. Speaking to process, Doherty says transport vehicles carrying hazardous materials, be they railcar or trailer, by law must carry a placard on the side stating what’s inside. This allows emergency responders to determine an appropriate response when needed. A manifest is also carried in the locomotive.

Kenn Mount If there is a potentially hazardous spill from a derailment or trucking incident, firefighters within the region are able to provide a limited degree of hazardous material response. In such situations, Doherty says the Ministry of Environment would take the lead, and the shipper would take responsibility for any cleanup required. Regarding the Revelstoke incident, Doherty confirmed there is no process in place where his organization would be informed of any derailment occurring within the boundaries of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD). “I’m going to say, we would all hope the railway would notify the emergency agen-

cies when a derailment takes place, but I do know that a great many of them that are minor aren’t reported to the emergency community,” said Doherty. For a hazardous materials response, Kenn Mount, fire services co-ordinator with the CSRD, says firefighters are trained either to an “awareness level,” where they know how to identify a material and take the necessary precautions or, in the case of the Sicamous and Salmon Arm fire departments, to an “operations level,” where firefighters may provide additional support such as damming or diking. However, he says the Salmon Arm, Sicamous and regional fire departments are working towards developing a regional hazardous materials response team. “That’s something we’ve kind of had some early discussions with, but it’s very early and there’s certainly nothing in the budget for next year, for example,” commented Salmon Arm Fire Chief Brad Shirley. “Ultimately, the shipper is responsible for the product, but in saying that, there’s certainly things that the fire service or emergency responders can do to prevent things from getting worse.” Shirley says his department has a good working relationship with CP, and he also receives the annual report of goods being transported through the community. However, he says it would be beneficial if a process were in place where the local fire department is immediately informed of any derailment. Mount agreed an alternative system to 911 for non-emergency in-

cidents is desirable and would be beneficial. “Then we could start logging that and bring in appropriate action for our own due diligence,” said Mount. “We don’t have any issues when there’s a 911 call. That seems to work well. But there needs to be something, more through the emergency program, because a derailment would involve more than just one agency with fire suppression. It could involve RCMP, Ministry of Environment, some other things like that.” -With files from Revelstoke Times Review.

Directors grill BC Assessment rep By Barb Brouwer


A presentation to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board of directors by a BC Assessment Authority senior appraiser drew questions and criticism. Tom Pringle gave directors an overview of the assessment authority’s history, role and process at the Sept. 18 board meeting. Pringle presented the 2014 roll highlights which indicate a two per cent increase in properties to 17,313, but with a 2.65 per cent decrease in value from 2013 to $5.65 billion. But the value of new construction in the regional district was up by 5.75 per cent over last year to the tune of $135.0 million. Area F North Shuswap director Larry Morgan asked about “legislated values,” to which Pringle explained farmland is assessed based on what it should be able to produce – forage land would have lower value than a property that is producing grapes, for example. Hearing this, Golden

Mayor Christina Benty advised Pringle she was about to get on her soap box and rant. “I have real frustration with the system. As local governments, our taxes are based on assessments; the more you’re assessed, the more you pay,” she said. “Our challenge is derelict buildings, and we have no tools to deal with that.” Benty noted property owners actually have incentives to retain properties in derelict or non-usable condition. Addressing Pringle’s reference to a community trying to establish a bylaw to provide tax incentives for people to build or improve their properties, Benty interrupted him to say she was talking about penalties for people who refuse to clean up or improve derelict or contaminated sites. “We have a number of brown fields, old gas stations, contaminated properties,” she said. “Is BC Assessment in any conversation about how to help municipalities?” Area E director Rhona Martin and president of the Union of British

Columbia Municipalities, said the longtime issue is a provincial one that has been discussed at the organization’s environment committee often. Pringle said contaminated and derelict sites are always on the assessment authority’s radar, but noted there has been a change in how assessments are done. “What I find disturbing myself is they seem to be going away from area appraisers; I have a couple of guys who have worked in this area for many years,” he said. “They are the best assessors in the province, they know the area, but assessment is getting away from that. It seems there is a disconnect from above.” On the other hand, a new computer tool is expected to help and Pringle says a recent desktop review of Kelowna actually picked up $50 million of new construction that had been missed. Expressing her lack of faith in the assessment authority, Martin questioned the merits of basing assessments

on market value. “We have the wonderful opportunity or horrible disadvantage,” she said. “People are coming here and are willing to pay $1 million for an old cabin that was built years ago,” she said. “That jacks the price up for other residents. The taxes go out of the roof and people are losing their homes because they can’t afford the taxes.” Martin referred to one house in Malakwa which sold for $500,000 “(nowhere near worth it)” and when the bottom fell out of the market, the buyer was devastated.” Area B Rural Revelstoke Loni Parker said the same problem is rife in her area where non-Canadians are paying high prices for homes on the local ski hills, again raising taxes and putting local residents out of their homes. Pringle noted that part of the assessor’s job is to look at what the market has done and the authority has the power to reject sales when they are not typical to the market.

Wrestler puts moves on comedy

By Tyler Lowey


Wrestling legend Mick Foley’s humour has taken him from ring to stage. The author/comedian will be at the SASCU Recreation Centre on Friday, Oct. 3 to perform his one-man show. The man of three faces brings his wit, wisdom, wildness and warmth to the stage with his show, Hardcore Legend: An Evening With Mick Foley. “It’s a wrestling talk show. I’m absolutely sure that people will leave with a smile on their face,” said the Hardcore Legend. The show is for all ages, but Foley still delves into stories of some of his most iconic matches for all the Hardcore fans out there. “The show is great. It’s like being in the ring, there’s going to be a lot of laughter with a little emotion

to it,” said Foley. “It is a blend of new and old stories that are accessible for everyone.” Former World Wrestling Entertainment announcer Jim Ross once called Foley, “Unbelievably indestructible,” for allw the punishment he could absorb while finishing matches with a bloodsoaked, toothless smile. The three-time World Wrestling Federation champion will hold a question and answer period along with a meet and greet after the show. “Sometimes the best stories happen in the Q and A,” joked Foley. Foley is the retired wrestlers’ renaissance man. He has authored 10 books, four memoirs and four children’s books, occasionally done voice acting and has toured the land doing comedy shows. He is thoroughly enjoying his time away from getting beaten with steel chairs and

being set on fire. “The shows are a great time and it doesn’t matter if they go bad, there is no way I can end up in the emergency room,” laughed Foley. The hellacious characters of Cactus Jack and Mankind are scheduled to make appearances on stage. Foley doesn’t have any roles for Dude Love, but you never know when he will emerge. “That’s actually my favourite part of the show, having those characters out,” said Foley. Years after his retirement, Foley is still a dedicated wrestling fan. “I still sit down once a week and watch. There’s a lot of good things happening in the WWE.” Now living in Long Island, N.Y., Foley’s wrestling days are far behind him. At 49 and soon after successful back surgery, he prom-

Reality check needed at rink

Chill, minor hockey parents, just chill. It’s that time of year again, when arenas fill with the sounds of our national game. Unfortunately, not all the sounds we hear in the rinks come from the ice. Most minor hockey parents get it. They are there to support their children, and his/her teammates, in a positive way. There are some, however, who need to re-think why they are at the rink. It’s better now, for sure. We are more educated about the harm that can be done by bullies and loudmouths. Our coaches and volunteers go through more rigorous background checks. And the Internet, with its ability to share videos, has a policing effect too. Still there are some in the crowd who believe their kid is going to make the NHL. Or the Western Hockey League. Or get a scholarship. The odds of a minor hockey player in this country making the NHL are worse than one in 4,000, according to research done recently in Ontario, where almost half of Canada’s minor hockey players reside. It’s OK to chase a dream. As long as it’s the kid’s dream. And it can happen. Once a parent looks past the almost ridiculous notion of an end-game that includes riches or a free education, the real advantages of playing minor hockey become more apparent. There is teamwork and loyalty to be learned. These kids also learn how to behave in restaurants and hotels. They also look great in suits. They are taught that nothing comes without hard work and commitment. They learn there are ramifications for poor behaviour. In short, they learn life lessons they will be able to use off the ice their entire lives, while also learning how to play a game they can play their entire lives. It’s the best game in the world. At the minor hockey level, let’s keep it in perspective. -Parksville Qualicum News

Classroom of the great outdoors

I remember as a young kid lying in the tall grass that grew along the banks of the creek that flowed not far from my home. I used to lie there and watch clouds go by. While most people might have tried to see shapes in the clouds, I was more than content to simply watch the clouds drift on by. I still spend time watching the clouds go by, but mostly I sit out in one of my Adirondack chairs in the front yard. Funny thing is, since I retired, I once again feel like I don’t have a care in the world.  These days, however, there is a bit of a chill in the air. Autumn is upon us. The ducks and geese have been heading south and everything in nature seems to have an urgency about it – almost as if we are going to be in for a long, hard winter. I wonder what the Farmer’s Almanac has to say. All I know is that each season seems to go by faster, while I seem to be getting slower and slower. The days of the week, like the seasons, fly

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray by like ducks and geese on the wing. When I was a kid, it seemed like I had all the time in the world. I was one of those kids who couldn’t wait for school to be over and for summer to begin. The first day of summer holidays meant, well, for me it meant freedom to do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I could go fishing in the morning and then again in the afternoon. If I felt like it, I could ride my bike like a crazy person right down Main Street – if I wanted to – and I didn’t have to give a rat’s behind as to where I was headed or when I had to be back. Just

as long as I was back for supper. On the other hand, it also meant that I could go for a walk over to old man Wilson’s place and watch him paint some part of his house. He would always give me some crab apples off his tree if I would stop watching him work and go away. Seemed like he was always painting, or scraping paint off and repainting some part of that old house. I don’t think that house ever did have a complete coat of paint, at least not all at the same time. I knew that I could also always go over to my cousin Charlie’s house to see if he wanted to hike all the way up to First Falls, where we could cast our lines to little 10- and 12-inch trout hiding in the big pool just beneath the falls. I wonder how many hours of our lives my cousin Charlie and I squandered away fishing up at First Falls, or any one of a dozen other good fishing spots that we knew of back then. We didn’t realize it at the time, but we were doing

more than just fishing. We were cultivating a lifelong appreciation for being in the great outdoors. We were learning about nature, in the only kind of classroom I ever truly enjoyed. I know I learned a fair amount about insects – at least which insects worked best for catching fish. Many a year has passed since those lazy summer days of my youth. Many a cloud has gone by, so to speak, and just as spring and summer have come and gone for this year, so too have the spring and summers of my life. Autumn is indeed upon us – just as the autumn of my life now appears before me. The thing is, autumn has always been my favourite season. I like all the colours and the cool, fresh crispness in the air. There are still plenty of good insect hatches and fishing is usually at its very best.

yet to this day, those rivers all run free. Those six people dedicated themselves and their efforts to this cause and they were victorious.  While I scattered the ashes of two of them in a mountain valley this summer, and two others are also deceased, they left for all of us an example of what can be done.   Of course, it wasn’t just about writing letters and demonstrating.  One of the first things my father did was to recruit Len Marchand to run for parliament.  Dad worked to get him elected and before Len went off to Ottawa, looked him in the eye and told him “If you

can’t stop the diversion in Ottawa, don’t bother coming back.” Sometimes politicians have to have things explained to them.  Therefore, let us now dedicate ourselves to continue their work, for while for all of us it can be said: “But at my back I always hear Time’s winged chariot hurrying near; And yonder all before us lie Deserts of vast eternity.” We can leave something other than deserts for those who follow us.  Richard Smiley

How not to handle a strike Christy Clark’s approach to labour relations vis-à-vis the B.C. teachers has been a lesson in puerility, i.e., an example of how to govern this province foolishly because of a deficiency in managerial skills. After frittering away the summer, the Liberals were finally forced by the weight of public opinion to get off their collective butts and negotiate in good faith. Clark’s ham-fisted

government must now pay for the administration of the boondoggle known as the Temporary Education Support for Parents. Shelling out $40 to the parents of qualifying children for each school day lost is another example of Liberal incompetence. This program was nothing more than a political ploy to appease the affected parents, i.e., partisan bureaucratic inefficiency

at its worst. If you are wondering why parents and children have had to endure all this inconvenience, uncertainty and stress, the answer is contained in the word puerility. If you have the need for a derisive chuckle or two, watch Christy Clark try to spin her perverted version of events. Lloyd Atkins

B.C. organic farmers commended For many, organic food is a staple part of their diet. This week, the Government of British Columbia has issued a proclamation that Sept. 20 to 28 shall be known as “Organic Week.” Organic Week promotes organic practices by raising the profile of the BC Certified Organic check mark and informing consumers about the wide range of organic products available throughout British Columbia. “The B.C. organic industry is strong and well-represented and when we support them, we are standing up for family owned businesses that provide us with local and nutritious foods,” said B.C. Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick. “I want to congratulate the Certified Organic Associations of B.C. on their leadership in raising the profile of British Columbia’s certified organic products.” Acting on behalf of Letnick, Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo presented the proclamation to the Certified

Organic Associations of BC (COABC) executive director of Operations Jen Gamble Saturday at the Sorrento Village Farmers Market. The proclamation acknowledges the contribution COABC and the organic sector make to the economic and environmental well-being of British Columbia and celebrates the valuable contributions of the organic sector in providing a healthy, sustainable organic food system. “It is a pleasure to present the Organic Week proclamation to the COABC at Shuswap’s Saturday morning gathering place, the Sorrento Village Farmers Market,” said Kyllo. “The location is perfect, with a great mix of people including both locals and tourists, all coming together to support our local farmers and artisans.” The Sorrento Village Farmer’s Market received the 2014 BC Association of Farmers’ Market award in the small market cat-

n Shuswap firefighters and members of the South Shuswap First Responders receive accolades and $5,000 from the owners of Carmel Cove Resort.

Local heroes honoured Shuswap firefighters and South Shuswap First Responders members were the guests of honour at Carmel Cove Resort on Saturday, Sept. 20. Along with accolades and thanks from MC realtor Kent Redekop introduced new owners – Ken Meyer, Leslieann Drody, Kevin and Tammy Meyer, Ron Loudin and Dave Louidin, Alan Steeves and Brent Roberts.

The owners treated the volunteers to dinner and donated $3,000 to the fire department and another $2,000 to the first responders. “On behalf of the new owners here at the resort, I’d like to welcome you this evening to honour those men and women who provide invaluable services to the community of Blind Bay and other communities throughout the South Shus-

wap,” said Redekop. “Firefighters and first responders define courage.” Redekop said there are not many volunteer groups that are expected to be on-call 24/7, leave their jobs or families at a moment’s notice to respond to an emergency, often putting themselves in harm’s way for the benefit of others. “Many community services survive only

because of volunteers who freely give of their time and we thank those of you who do this,” he said. “Your contributions enrich our community; they make us more resilient and help define the character of not only our community, region or province, but our entire nation.” As well, Redekop thanked the families of the volunteers for their sacrifice.

Brewery salutes sockeye with new beer October is the month to celebrate salmon in the Shuswap. As the Adams River run completes the series of sockeye spawning runs around the lake, the Shuswap’s own brewery celebrates the salmon with the release of a special beer on Saturday, Oct. 4. “Named ‘Sockeye’ after our own indigenous hops variety, this beer does much more than just taste great,” says Rebecca Kneen, farmer and owner of Crannóg Ales and Left Fields. “Crannóg Ales is using sales of this beer and T-shirts to benefit

the Adams River Salmon Society, the Pacific Salmon Foundation and the Secwepemc groups who are defending local watersheds and salmon habitat.” On Oct. 4, from 2 to 5 p.m., Crannóg Ales will be launching their Sockeye Ale with a party at the brewery. Samples of the new beer will be served, along with music and presentations by those defending the salmon. “I’m really happy to be able to feature our new hops variety in a way which also benefits the community,” says Brian MacIsaac, alesmith and owner of

Crannóg Ales. “The Sockeye hops are wonderfully spicy and citrusy, and make this beer really something special.” MacIsaac says the Sockeye hops are a variety that was found growing on the farm, and are unique to Left Fields. “Left Fields has been salmon-safe certified for several years, as well as being certified organic,” says Kneen. “We protect the groundwater, keeping it clean and safe for fish. It’s a natural part of our overall commitment to environmental and economic sustainability.”

The Adams River salmon run is the largest sockeye spawn in North America, and 2014 is a peak year for returning salmon. All over the Pacific Northwest, salmon are a vital part of ecosystems and First Nations food supply, as well as feeding bear and eagles and creating nutrients for trees along the riverbanks. Spawning Sockeye Ale will debut during the “Salute to the Salmon” on Oct. 4 at the brewery. T-shirts designed by MacIsaac in his signature Celtic style will also be available.

Better at Home helps link seniors with services MARKET NEWS STAff

The Shuswap’s Better at Home program is expanding its outreach to better assist seniors to remain independent. Better at Home co-ordinator Wysteria Scholtz has arranged bi-weekly drop-in dates for Sicamous, Salmon Arm, Sorrento, Blind Bay and Enderby, in order to meet in person those seniors who are in need of the services that are co-ordinated through the program. There are 60 Better at Home programs run throughout the province, each funded through the B.C. Ministry of Health and administered by the United Way. The program is intended to assist seniors “with simple day-to-day tasks so they can continue living at home.” Jeanne Rokosh, general manager of Shuswap Better at Home, says her role is to help co-ordinate the delivery of non-medical services for seniors who would like to remain in their homes. These services include things like housekeeping, lawn work, the provision of transportation, minor home repairs, grocery shopping and friendly social visits. Rokosh says research done by the United Way found seniors could live in their homes for a longer duration if they had an avenue through which to access such services. “What we learned through some of the research was that people were having to move from their homes and into what we might call residential service for seniors when they might simply have needed someone to help with their lawnmowing or grocery shopping,” explained Rokosh. “So what came out of that was this notion of, why

couldn’t we provide more coordination of services and support for seniors so they wouldn’t have to relocate.” Depending on the services needed, and the financial status of those needing the service, Rokosh says there is one of two paths that may be taken. “One is that we may have volunteers available who may be able to provide that support or resource. And the other path is… if there is finance limitations on behalf of the senior, we may be able to assess them and see if they are eligible for subsidy – we have a limited amount of subsidy available as well.”

“The incidences of seniors experiencing loneliness is quite high... I think now, more than ever, we’re seeing seniors with family members who are living far away.” - Jeanne Rokosh

The three-year Shuswap program is nearing the end of the first year of operation. Rokosh says one of the challenges the program has faced, one that was anticipated, has to do with the size of the region the program serves and the lack of transit and transportation for those living in smaller communities. This, Rokosh explained, can make the provision of a service difficult when long distances are involved. “For example, we’re thinking about snow shovelling this winter. We’re certain seniors are going to need that kind of service, but to be able to have a company or a person or an organization that works regionally in all the areas, I think we’re hard-pressed to find them,” said Rokosh, adding distance and transit challenges makes it difficult to get

service providers to seniors on a steady basis. “With the cost of gas, it’s cost-prohibitive for people to even think about providing the service.” Asked what services have been most requested, Rokosh said initially most calls were for housekeeping. However, requests for friendly visits are now on par. She says this is something many involved in the provision of care for seniors are seeing. “The incidences of seniors experiencing loneliness is quite high,” said Rokosh. “We have about an equal number of inquiries from people who are living with someone as from people who are living alone, and I think now, more than ever, we’re seeing seniors with family members who are living far away. “Their family is not within the vicinity of where they’re currently living. They’re aging without a whole lot of support, and that’s not uncommon. Health care would probably echo that, as would other sectors.” Rokosh says the roll out of biweekly drop-in dates throughout the region corresponds with the opening of the Copper Island Seniors Resource Centre in Blind Bay. Sholtz is scheduled to be there Tuesday afternoons between 1 and 4 p.m. She will be in Sicamous Mondays from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Eagle Valley Resource Centre, at the Enderby Seniors Complex on Wednesdays from 12:30 to 4 p.m., and in Salmon Arm at the Seniors Drop-in Centre on Hudson from 11 to 2 p.m. To book an appointment or for more information, call 250253-2749, or visit betterathome. ca.

Scotland chooses to stay in UK GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer A week ago, the Kurdistan Times warned that “the British are exercising the old colonialist tongue to control the minds and dampen the aspirations of Scottish people who want to vote Yes (to independence).” And lo! It came to pass just as the Kurdistan Times predicted. The silver-tongued colonialists lured the Scots into voting No, and by a fairly healthy margin, too: 55 per cent No, 45 per cent Yes. It is, indeed, a much wider margin for the No than the last time a proposal for secession was voted on in a Western country, in Canada in 1995. In that referendum, just 50.5 percent of Quebecers voted No, compared to 49.5 percent who voted Yes. At the time, many Canadians thought the country’s demolition had only been deferred, not averted. It was, after all, the second referendum on Quebec’s independence, and it was a lot closer to a Yes than the first one in 1980 (60 percent No, 40 percent Yes). Third time lucky, muttered the separatists of the Parti Quebecois. And everybody else assumed that they’d just keep holding referendums until they got the right answer. That was when a Montreal journalist called Josh Freed coined the word “Neverendum” to describe the process, and for more than a decade that was the wheel that everybody in Quebec assumed they were tied to. But they turned out to be wrong. Almost two decades later, there has been no third referendum, nor is there any

on the horizon. Indeed, there was a provincial election in Quebec in April, and the Parti Quebecois looked set to win it – until one of its star candidates started talking about another referendum on independence, and the PQ’s vote suddenly collapsed. A recent poll revealed that 64 percent of Quebecers, and an even higher proportion of young Quebecers, don’t want another referendum. Could it work out that way in Scotland too? That would be good, because what will probably happen if another referendum remains a possibility is what befell Quebec: a low-level depression that lasted for decades as investors avoided a place whose future was so uncertain, and existing businesses pulled out. It was not even that everybody knew that Quebec’s independence would be an economic disaster; just that nobody could be certain it wouldn’t be. The result was that Quebec’s share of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product, which was around 25 percent when the separatist Parti Quebecois was first elected in 1976, is now less than 20 percent. That is about

90 billion dollars of lost economic activity in Quebec each year, even though another referendum on independence has been a rapidly receding prospect for at least the past dozen years. How might Scotland avoid that fate? The only way, really, is for “Devo Max” to work so well, and so thoroughly satisfy Scots’ understandable desire for more control over their own government and economy, that nobody talks about independence any more. That will be more than a little tricky. “Devo Max” – maximum devolution of power from London to Edinburgh – would leave little else but defence and foreign affairs to the UK parliament in London. Everything else would be decided by Scots, in Scotland, including rates of taxation and the level of spending on health and welfare. So what’s the problem? Scotland was already more than halfway there before the independence referendum. In the panicky last days before the vote, when it briefly looked like the Yes might squeak through to a narrow victory, all three major British par-

ties promised to deliver the other half as well. But it will be very hard for them to keep their promises, which include placing what amounts to a proposal for a new British constitution before the Westminster parliament by next March. They are starting with three different versions of Devo Max for Scotland, and getting to a single agreed version (which also satisfies the great majority of Scots) in only six months is a tall order. Even more difficult is the fact that Scotland cannot be given all these powers while the other parts of the United Kingdom – Wales, Northern Ireland and even the various regions of England – stay just the same. There must be at least some more devolution for them too, but that debate has barely started. What the United Kingdom must do in the next six months, in other words, is design and pass its first written constitution. And it will not just codify existing arrangements; it will radically change them. Meanwhile, the disappointed Scottish supporters of the Yes will be looking for opportunities to claim that the “English” (as


they will put it) are reneging on their promises. So what are the odds that Scotland will escape the “planning blight” of a long period during which a second referendum lurks in the shadows, and the economic damage accumulates? Not very good.

Many people grow discouraged if their workout routine doesn’t produce jaw-dropping results overnight. But an effective and healthy exercise regimen will gradually produce results, leading to long-term health, as opposed to an overnight fix with minimal long-term effectiveness. When beginning the regimen, do so slowly and allow for gradual progress. Learning to rest is also part of being patient. The body needs time to recover between workouts, so don’t expect to exercise every day at the start. Initially you should be giving your body at least one day to recover between workouts.

When I was your age Many of us can recall hearing something like this when we were kids: “When I was your age, I used to walk 15 kilometers to get to school in five feet of snow...” This lesson from our elders speaks to our society’s change to a faster pace of life. It also reflects our reliance on automobiles to move us around our community instead of using more active modes of transportation such as walking, biking and even taking public transit. Walking to school improves kid’s physical activity levels, social interactions, and altertness at school and also improves the environment and mental wellbeing of parents. Yet, in Canada, 58 per cent of parents say they always walked to school when they were kids but but only 28 per cent of their kids do. So curiosity led me to ask parents about why the

shift away from walking to school. My findings were similar to those identified by the Active Healthy Kids Canada (2014). When it comes to walking to school

as well as other physical activity for kids, parents often choose what they believe will save time, is more convenient and is safer. My morning commute

often involves navigating my bike through traffic flowing to and from the nearby schools. While wading through the traffic and idling vehicles, I often won-

a car, there are also a lot of carbon emissions being dispelled into the neighbourhood as cars idle near the drop off zone. With asthma and obesity on the rise in children and youth maybe it’s time to reflect on the words of our elders and re-consider how we get around. Walking and biking to school can be efficient, convenient and safe. Schools, city planners, parents and neighbourhoods have pulled together in various communities within their Interior region to plan active and safe routes to school. One initiative gaining popularity is the walking school bus which can be as simple as a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. Now that is something I can get behind!

Limit computer time to protect kid’s eyesight (NC) The startling increase of nearsightedness (myopia) in children worldwide may be a direct consequence of too much time with computers, pediatric eye doctors say. Reports show that the average child spends from one to three hours per day with his or her eyes on a computer screen. “In fact, children us-

ing computers before their visual systems are fully developed are at the very heart of the public health problem called ‘computer vision syndrome’,” says Bijan Minbashion, vice president of operations for Hakim Optical, a national leader in retail eye care. “A study at the University of California reports that 25%

to 30% of computerusing children need corrective eyewear to work with the equipment comfortably and safely – and similar studies in Asia report that first-graders with myopia has increased from 12.1% to 20.4% since 1995. In the last three years, myopia is reported to have doubled to 34% in sevento nine-year olds.”

To guard against early damage to your child’s eyes, consider these Hakim Optical tips: • Schedule a comprehensive eye exam as your child enters kindergarten, including near-point (computer and reading) and distance testing. • Schedule an eye exam before school begins every year.

• The recommended distance for children between the monitor and the eye is 18-28 inches. Any closer risks eye strain. • Be aware of behaviour that indicates problems such as eye redness, frequent rubbing of the eyes, unusual posture, or complaints of blurriness or eye fatigue

RCMP victim services volunteers needed If you care about people, are committed to your co-workers and community, are compassionate, have good listening skills and are willing to help those in need, you might be just the right person to become a victim support worker. Salmon Arm and Sicamous Police Victim Services are looking for volunteer victim service advocates and support workers. General requirements for the position must include: • Canadian citizenship, • mature individuals over 19, • ability to obtain RCMP Enhanced Se-

curity Clearance, • Valid B.C. driver’s licence, • successful interview process, • ability to attend all mandatory training sessions, • be ethical, dependable and compassionate, • be non-judgmental, • have a desire to assist all victims of crime and tragedy, • ability to maintain confidentiality and • strong listening skills.

Having successfully hosted the Interfaith Symposium in 2013 and the Respect Lives Here Symposium in 2014, Shuswap Settlement Services, part of the Thompson Okanagan Respect Network is back, this year, with a number of initiatives to foster a welcoming community that embraces diversity and rejects hate and discrimination. On Oct. 3, local volunteers will receive training to conduct Safe Harbour cultural sensitivity training sessions. This will enable employers to provide cultural sensitivity training to their staff at little or no cost and to be designated a Safe Harbour to minorities seeking refuge from hate or discrimination. On Oct. 8, Shuswap Settlement will host the first of five community conversation gatherings in keeping with the guidelines set out by Peter Block, author of Community: The Structure of Belonging. The process involves convening a number of very small group conversations within the context of a larger group. Participants, reflecting a cross section of the community, are reassembled into small groups of individuals who may have been previously acquainted but not familiar with each other. The conversations are centered on envisioning our possibilities, as individuals and as a community, rather than rehashing past failures or finding blame. Participants will meet monthly for five months. Through its “Immigrant Services Shuswap” office at 371 Hudson Ave., Shuswap Settlement Services deals with a broad range of the individual needs of immigrants. By setting up gatherings of the primary Shuswap immigrant communities where they are able to converse in their first language, Shuswap Settlement hopes to replicate what occurs naturally in larger urban centres. In March of 2015, Plan B:E Society, a community partner of Shuswap Settlement, will convene “Refresh and Recharge.” This gathering will provide opportunity for community members and organizations to reflect and assess the value of what has transpired, and to recommit to a new plan moving forward. Individuals wishing to volunteer to participate in Community Connections can email, or phone 250-804-2726. -Submitted by Bernie Desrosiers, Shuswap Settlement Services

Welcoming the sockeye salmon home By Barb Brouwer


No salmon are visible in the Adams River yet, but preparations for their big homecoming are well underway. Construction noises compete with the sound of the river flowing by as a number of workers rush to ready Roderick Haig-Brown Park for the dominant-run Salute to the Sockeye. The new parking lot is well laid out, with a large circular drive that will accommodate buses and a drop-off zone for people with disabilities. Adams River Salmon Society events co-ordinator Jeremy Heighton explains the site has undergone many changes since the last dominant run in 2010. He points to where the food vendors will be and, with another wave of his hand, reveals the location of the artisan and

souvenir tents, before heading off down a wide trail to explore changes to the viewing areas as well. Humans are not the only ones to have created changes in the layout of the park, particularly along the riverside portions of the trail. Describing the Adams River as being extremely dynamic, Heighton, a former liaison officer with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, says the old viewing platform was a victim of the power of water and removed after the 2010 run. It is replaced by a new one at a more stable point along the river. Keeping river power in mind, Heighton points out two reasons why people need to keep to the trails. Pointing to a bend in the river where a huge debris pile has formed, and remained for a very long time, Heighton says anyone who falls in (or chooses to enter voluntarily) is likely to

be pushed into and sucked under the large mass of logs. “That’s it, there’s nothing we can do for you then,” he says of the extreme danger. Farther along the trail, he points to a hole about the size of a manhole, another area to avoid. Beside the hole that has been created by bank erosion, is a clump of three tall trees that are already leaning toward the river. Another freshet, another rain-laden storm, and the bank could give way, toppling the trees into the water. On the trail again, Heighton heads to a wide swath of rocky beach considered safe enough for viewers to get near the river. Pointing to a fly fisher nearby, Heighton says there is a legitimate rainbow trout fishery on the river. Heighton explains that rainbows will bump into female sockeye, which releases a few of her eggs and provides them

This leads to an explanation about seeing many dead salmon along with riverbanks with holes in their stomachs. “Eagles will drop the salmon on the beach and poke them in their bellies to get to the eggs,” he says, pointing out that salmon do not eat once they enter

the river and travel against the current for 485 kilometres before arriving at their spawning grounds, where the females use their flagging energy to dig a receptacle for their eggs. “By the time they arrive here, there is no nutrition left in their flesh,” he says. “That’s also why bears go for the eggs in the belly or

the head for the brain.” After the mating dance, the males often depart, but the female, with about seven to 10 days left in her life, stays to guard her eggs until they harden, in about four days. As life wanes, it becomes harder and harder for her to remain in the current, harder still to fight her way back each time she drifts down river. Finally spent, she succumbs to the power of the river. The Salute to the Sockeye is a joint effort by the Adams River Salmon Society, DFO, BC Parks, the Canadian Wildlife Federation and the Pacific Salmon Foundation. During the salute, which runs daily 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Oct. 3 to 26, experts will be on hand to educate and answer questions. The grand opening is at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5.

Heat split weekend contests By Scott Koch

Chase Contacts


The Chase Heat entertained the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Friday, Sept. 19 in their season home opener at Art Holding Memorial Arena. They came out like gangbusters and scored two quick goals. The first on a beauty of a shot at 18:49 by Braden Hughes from Logan Mostat and Connor Venne. Hughes arrived this week from a Junior A tryout with the AJHL Bonneyville Pontiacs. Mostat followed on his heels in a trade with the North Okanagan Knights. He had just completed a tryout with the Junior A BCHL Salmon Arm Silverbacks. Two additions and immediate impact and results. Two minutes later, Alex Durbeniuk from Jordan Passmore and Mostat made it 2-0. The Bruins scored on the powerplay prior to Venne popping one in from Brenden Zupp and Durbeniuk. In the second, Chase got two: Cody Hodges from Passmore and Kaleb Boyle, and then Spencer Farstad from Dustin Vasil and Austin Willier. The Bruins scored four times in the third with the Heat countering with three –Hughes with his second from Durbeniuk and Travis Beaubien, and Passmore from Mostat and Venne. Closing out scoring was Hodges with his second from Wesley Matsuda and Michael Byer. A good size crowd and a good size 8-4 win to send the fans home happy! Saturday night in Revelstoke versus the Grizzlies was a different story as the Heat were decimated with injuries to Boyle, Durbeniuk and Kolten Moore as well as

n More than 250 fans attended the Heat’s first home game of the season. Reid Robertson of the Grand Forks Border Bruins tries to catch up with local Chase player Cody Hoghes, as he goes in on a break-away, scoring the eighth goal of the evening for an 8-4 win. The Heat donated their share of the 50/50 draw to Dennon Leibel and his family. Leibel, who is from Vernon, plays for the North Okanagan Knights and, in April, he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. For the past several months, and for several more months to come, he will be undergoing chemotherapy, surgery and radiation at BC Children’s Hospital. illnesses to Mostat, Chase Anchikoski and head coach Brad Fox. The Heat got on the board first with Passmore from Trevor Okino and Boyle.

Revelstoke got that back in the third and then with 1:14 left in double overtime scored to give the Heat a 2-1 loss. Next up, the Posse

from Princeton come to Chase for a 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28 contest. On Friday, Oct. 3, the squad will travel to the Kootenays for a three-game road trip.

What’s On in Chase

rick koch photo

n The Rotary Yellow Bag Food Drive was held Saturday Sept. 20. Niki Paul, above, helped by going door-to-door, collecting yellow bags as well as sorting food and checking expiry dates.

Community spirit excels for food drive Citizens of Chase once again showed excellent support for the Chase Rotary Club’s Yellow Bag Food Drive. Chuck Wyld from the Chase Hamper Society has updated the totals from the food drive to approximately 5,000 pounds of donated food from Chase residents. Volunteers initially collected about 1,800 pounds from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, and still had to collect from a few stores which had bins where people could drop off yellow bags. People who were missed or who forgot about the drive have been dropping donations at Safety Mart Foods and Peoples Food and Drugs daily, plus there are donations still to come from the First Nations bands, who supported the drive well last spring. Less fortunate families in Chase will once again be supported by

It comes with heavy hearts of the passing of Donna Leona Downing on September 16, 2014 at the age of 75 at Royal Inland Hospital Kamloops, BC due to a brain aneurysm. Mom was born on September 2, 1939 in Hamiota, Manitoba. She became a hairdresser at the age of 17 in Winnipeg then continued on to Calgary, Alberta to work as a hairdresser until she went back to school to do her office and medical training to become a unit clerk. Through the years mom worked as a unit / office clerk in various hospitals in Calgary, Alberta, Brandon, Manitoba, Nanaimo, BC and finally in Enderby, BC. She is survived by her husband Gordon of 35 years, her children Tim (Barb) Payne, Randy (George) Payne, & Loreana (Jan) Payne-Kuntz. Her step children Crystal (George) Butcher, Joe (Alyson) Downing & Kim (Billy) Morrow. Grand children Joel, Erickson, Kaitlyn, Clayton, Jeff, Trina, Arthur, Grayson, Bobby, Alex and Hayden and six precious great grand children. And finally but not least big brother Ed ( Betty) Pulver. Welcoming Mom in the next step of life’s journey is her mother Dorthy Pulver, brother Len Pulver and sister Deanna Lowe. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother but most of all she was our best friend who always had our backs. She was a dynamo of a woman with a zest for life, which showed even more in the last few months after she suffered her first brain aneurysm. Besides the love for her family she had a love for her gardens, oil painting, knitting, crocheting and her games (her grandchildren grew up playing video games with her). She looked forward to her mornings and afternoons bowling both in Salmon Arm and Chase even if she didn’t bowl well that day. It was more about the fun of being out and enjoying life with her friends. Mom’s favorite time of year was when spring time came so she could go and do the things she loved to do most, camping and fishing with Gord, family and good friends. At her request there is no service at this time with the family planning one last camping and fishing trip in her honour next spring to celebrate the person and gift she was to us all. We raise our glass of wine and put out our fishing lines in your honour mom, you will be so dearly missed but always with us.

GEORGE HOWARD HIGGINBOTTOM September 14, 1944 - September 15, 2014 It is with great sadness that the family of George Howard Higginbottom announces his passing on September 15, 2014 at the age of 70, at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm following a short courageous battle with cancer. George was born in Selkirk Manitoba, served in the Canadian Armed Forces from 1960 – 1972, employed by Deer Lodge Veterans Hospital from 1973 – 1979 and worked as a Winnipeg Transit Bus driver from where he retired in 2000. During his retirement in Enderby British Columbia, George enjoyed the management responsibilities of mobile trailer parks and ensuring parks were well maintained and took special pride in assisting the residents where required. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Carol as a gentle, generous, good natured fun loving Husband, Dad, Granddad, Brother, Uncle and Friend who will be deeply missed. Respecting George’s wishes there will be no formal service. In memory of donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society Online condolences may be sent through George’s obituary at

Easier sign-up for organ donors in Salmon Arm The B.C. government has partnered with BC Transplant to make registering a decision on organ donation easier than ever before. Starting this week, the Service BC centre in Salmon Arm, as well as in Dawson Creek, Quesnel and Port Al-

berni, will offer citizens the opportunity to register their decision about becoming a lifesaving organ donor quickly and easily. More than 95 per cent of British Columbians support organ donation but only 19 per cent have registered. With

close to 500 citizens on the transplant waiting list, signing up to become an organ donor could help save lives – possibly the life of a neighbour, co-worker, friend or family member in need. A decal on your driver’s licence is no longer

enough. A potential donor also needs to register using a BC Services Card or CareCard at Beginning with these four Service BC locations, participating centres have staff on hand to provide information about organ donation,

answer questions about the registration process and to assist citizens to confirm their intentions with BC Transplant by registering online as a donor. “As someone who has been touched by a close family friend in need of a heart transplant, I am

proud to have played a part in helping this program become a reality. By increasing opportunities to register as an organ donor, more lives can be saved,” says Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo. BC Transplant provincial executive direc-

tor Dr. Greg Grant adds, “We know that British Columbians support organ donation. We are excited that this partnership with Service BC will make it easier for people in many of B.C.’s smaller communities to register their decision.”

Salmon Arm’s spirit never fails to amaze MAYOR’S MESSAGE Nancy Cooper

This month I would like to bring up a few very important issues to our community. First of all Salmon Arm, you never cease to amaze me with your ingenuity. During the recent education disruption I watched parents getting together, taking on the teaching role and tutoring their children.

Many parents contacted me asking that I contact our MLA on their behalf. Their message was simple. They understood there were complex issues and they were not taking sides; they just wanted their children back in school. Now that a resolution has been reached and children are back

Home& Garden

Colours that provoke a mood Colours have a huge influence on the mood of a room – they can either awaken or soothe the senses. Once you identify the effect you’re after, you’ll be able to choose the perfect colours for every room in your home. Need some peace and quiet? Blue invites you to relax and sleep. Green is comforting; it promotes harmony and is an excellent antidote to fatigue. A marriage of blue and green creates a relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a bedroom or reading room. Want to create some punch? Energizing and daring, orange brightens the mood, stimulates creativity, and whets the appetite – great in the kitchen if you’re a foodie, but not if you are on a diet! Playing with white and cream as a background for orange encourages movement and action. It’s also a great choice for an exercise room or a basement rec room. Need to concentrate? Yel-

low stimulates the intellect and inspires a good mood. It also sharpens the memory. In small doses, soft yellows and blues have a balancing effect and encourages concentration. These colours are ideal for work areas. Illusion or reality? Colours can outsmart the eye and change our perceptions. To enlarge a space, opt for a single colour on the walls,

moldings, and ceiling. White or pale colours that reflect light and brighten the room are preferable. To create the opposite illusion, go for dark colours, which make the walls appear slightly closer together and the room appear smaller. Now all you have to do is to choose the colours that best suit your needs and personality. A35

Do you know how to play with patterns? The coordination of patterns and textures is just as important as the colour scheme in interior design. In the same way that a harmonious blend of colours embellishes a room, printed fabrics and wallpaper energize a room painted in a solid colour. Sometimes, prints are even used as the basic element of a room’s decor. Patterns can alter the relationship between colours, and thus it is extremely

important to match them carefully. Some printed fabrics blend well together, while others are poorly matched. When mixing prints, it is important to distribute them carefully, taking into account their colours and designs to ensure good balance. Patterns with similar dimensions are easier to combine. But it is also important, when combining patterns, to ensure that their colours stand out. When it is

properly done, several patterns grouped together can accentuate the depth and atmosphere of the room. It is always preferable to choose print fabrics that go well with the shapes, colours, and patterns of the existing furniture and accessories. Fortunately, it is possible these days to find fabrics, wallpapers, wall coverings, and ceramic tiles that are made to be mixed and matched.
