New skate park survey postpones potential grant money
HAVING A SPLASH
BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff
Updating demographics for the Trail skate park has temporarily dried up a sizeable funding stream for the project. Rotarian Scott Daniels, a longtime Friend of the Trail Skate Park, was disappointed to learn Thursday that a large grant he was seeking through Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) hit a bump after the City of Trail announced an upcoming survey that could alter future park plans. Park design, location and other specifics haven't been cemented just yet, and could change depending what the random telephone survey reveals. “It's very sad that the city's decision to move ahead with the survey has resulted in further delays by the CBT regarding our request for funding through their Community Development Program application,” said Daniels. The decision wasn't made lightly, and isn't a question of whether or not the trust supports a skate park, says Delphi Hoodicoff, CBT's communications director. “Absolutely not,” she explained. “There's just too many changing and variable factors and I think that is what is happening in the community right now. We are just LIZ BEVAN PHOTO taking that and saying okay, maybe On a sunny and warm Victoria Day weekend, Cameron Eagar, 6, spent his holiday Monday at the we need to sit back on this for a spray park in Gyro Park with his family instead of the classroom.

BV Citizen of the Year just ‘doing her part’ to help community

Although she says she is a private person, Fruitvale resident Dorothy Mitchell, this year's Beaver Valley Citizen of the Year (BVCOTY), can be seen all around the area lending a helping hand where she can. Mitchell is heavily involved in her church community, teaching Sunday school, working at the thrift shop and the Beaver Valley
Food Bank and participating in almost every aspect of church volunteership, making her, according to the BVCOTY selection committee, the best choice for the 2015 award. She has also committed time to substitute teaching at Beaver Valley Middle
School, working in school libraries when there was no librarian and spent 10 years as a Brownie troupe leader. After a few weeks of nomination reviews and deliberation, the committee chose Mitchell and she says she was surprised when the news came that she had won. She didn't even realize she was in the running for the award.
lar to what the skate park committee recently experienced when $20,000 from CBT's community initiatives grants expired. “The money does expire after awhile and this year the money was reallocated to that group because it looked like it (skate park project) might be going somewhere.” After news that the city is surveying a random section of Trail residents this summer, to ascertain how much taxpayers would be willing to buck up, preferred locations and other factors, the CBT decided to hold off its decision until results of the survey are complete. With respect to the community development program, the trust requires certainties that the project is moving forward as well as particulars, such as site confirmation, noted Hoodicoff. “Without all that in place the money gets tied up,” she said. “Typically in a contract, which is case by case, we might say the same thing – the money expires in a year. And why would we want to tie that money up when it could go to benefit another project.” Hoodicoff acknowledged the matter as discouraging to skate park supporters, but said without certainty the grant couldn't be supported at this time. But that doesn't mean CBT doesn't support skate parks, not by a long shot. See SUPPORT, Page 3 “It was unbelievable to tell the truth,” she said, adding that she just wants to help her home community and its residents. “(Volunteering is important because) I happen to be a citizen out here and I want to do my part.” Mitchell says there isn't a single piece of her volunteer work that stands out, or has the most impact.

Trail Arts Council raising funds for new time/temp sign By Sheri Regnier
Trail Community Centre, such as Selkirk College, the VISAC Gallery and Trail gym club, to brainstorm ways of improving visibility of the local arts and culture scene while boosting the facility's profile in the community and to out-of-towners. “Trail was being recognized for its past accomplishments with individuals and teams in sporting events,” Wray explained. “So part of the committee's goal was to advance the profile of arts and culture in the community and raise the profile of those in the community centre.” After three years of fundraising the arts council installed the electronic message board in 2000. Since then, besides providing time and temperature to all those passing through town, TDAC's sign has promoted all kinds of goings-on such as theatre performances, art exhibitions, Sunday cinema showings and educational opportunities at Selkirk's Trail campus. “Another big consideration is that the arts council has a contract with the regional district to promote the Charles Bailey Theatre,” explained Wray, referring to the $30,000 the council
There's a downtown feature that's especially popular during Trail's sizzling hot summers –the Victoria Street sign that shows just how high Silver City mercury can climb. Unfortunately, the time-temperature display went on the fritz during the winter and can't be fixed because new parts for the 15-year old electronic sign are no longer available. The Trail and District Arts Council (TDAC), owner of the message board, is currently fundraising for a new display, but it could be mid-July or later before a new one goes up. “Somebody said to me the other day, 'I can hardly wait to see the new sign and see if it's 43 degrees out again this summer,'” laughed TDAC's Judy Wray. “I don't know if it was working properly then,” she explained. “But when it broke down, the arts council realized we have achieved the goal we wanted to with the message board, so we decided we better get a new one up there.” In the late 1990s, the arts council spearheaded a committee of tenants from the Greater

Support will be there when needed FROM PAGE 1 Over the past nine years, the organization has allotted $15,000 to Valemount for a skate park; Kimberley $40,000; Kaslo $53,000; and Nelson $50,000. The majority of the parks were funded through the community initiatives program, said Hoodicoff, adding the range of support varied from upgrading ramps and rails for $4,000 to building new parks for up
to $50,000. “It’s not a decision of whether we support a skate park or not,” she said. “It’s a balance. And we will definitely be there for them when things are ready to roll.” Last year, the city successfully submitted an application to CBT’s community development program, and received $450,000 for Trail’s new library/museum slated to break ground in 2016.
Ceremony on Friday FROM PAGE 1 “I couldn’t pick out any one,”she said. “There are a lot of things that I do with the church that are very important, but I don’t think I can pick out any one thing in particular.” The 90-year-old is still going strong with her volunteer work, and shows no signs of slowing down. “I attended the United Church Women’s 90th Birthday Tea and Dorothy was in the kitchen tirelessly working,” said Grace Terness, a member of the BVCOTY committee. The lifelong volunteer will be honoured at the official BVCOTY awards ceremony on Friday at 7 p.m. in the Beaver Valley Curling Rink. The ceremony acts as the kick-off for the weekend-long Beaver Valley May Days celebrations. The general public is invited to join and honour Mitchell and her hard work in the community. Mitchell will also be appearing in the May Days parade, starting at noon on Saturday in Fruitvale.

“Once the amount is accumulated then the arts council will contribute the rest,” said Wray. “It's a massive project and a lot of money for a little arts council, but it is for the community.” As the Trail Times continues to recount city events for the newspaper's 120th anniversary, an edition from May, 1976 was
randomly chosen for a quick read. In the bottom right corner of the May 17 front page, was an artist's rendering of Cominco's gift to Trail to honour the city's 75th birthday. Marc Marcolin, Cominco's then vice president of Trail operations, presented Mayor Chuck Lakes with a model representing the company's anniversary gift of a 25-foot time and temperature sign, scheduled for installation on Victoria Street by June 15 that year. Mr Marcolin said the $20,000 sign would give the community more of a “big city” appearance, while Lakes said the plus factor was the space for the city's public service messages. The sign was by a company called Neon, and described as visible along most of Victoria Street from the Terra Nova Motor Inn to the crest of the Columbia River bridge. The original sign wasn't automated, rather city crews had to replace the letters, clarified Sarah Benson, director of Trail's archives, adding, “they called it the Cominco time and (sometimes) temperature sign.”
Local fire season underway
Season heating up region earlier than usual By Sheri Regnier Times Staff
It's hard to believe Smokey Bear has been trying to prevent wildfires for 60 years, and people still aren't getting his message – 'Only you can prevent forest fires.' Just a few weeks into the fire season, and crews from the Southeast Fire Centre have already been called out 27 times. All of those incidents were human caused, and most were unattended or abandoned campfires. “I think it's really important for people to know that when they have a campfire, unattended means you are leaving the area for any amount of time,” says Fanny Bernard, the centre's fire information officer. “That means turning in for the night, fishing for a few hours or going on a quick hike. If you are leaving for any amount of time, the fire has to put out.” Ashes have to be cool to the touch, which means at least eight litres of water need to be on hand along with a hand
tool such as a shovel, to stir the cinders and ensure water soaks deep enough to completely extinguish the fire. “People are surprised at how quickly a fire can spark and how quickly the wind can carry it to combustible material,” said Bernard. “That's why site selection of the campfire is important and also, if it's windy enough to carry embers or sparks, then it's not a good day for a camp fire or backyard burning.” She said if conditions are favourable for a campfire, then its size must be limited to less than a half metre by a half metre. Most of the region is listed as moderate for fire danger rating, meaning anyone in the forest must exercise caution because forest fuels are drying and there is an increased risk of surface fires starting. Notably in Trail, there are already patches deemed a high fire danger rating following the lowest snowpack in 31 years and only 50 per cent of the typical April rainfall.
37 UP TO
High fire danger means forest fuels are very dry, and fire risk is serious. New fires can start easily, burn vigorously and be difficult to contain, so open burning and industrial activities may be restricted. “It's been snow-free for longer than usual,” said Bernard. “Fuels are dry and rains have been scattered so people might leave their home where it's rained quite a bit, and go recreate or camp somewhere that might only have a couple of millimetres of rain, if at all.” She said the lack of rain in certain areas wasn't enough to lower the fire danger from high, so it's critical the public practises extreme caution. “Not just now but anytime using fire for back yard burning or having a campfire,” she said. “It's important not to light up more than you could reasonably expect to put out if it does escape.” For a look at interactive maps and information about specific areas, the venting indices, or air quality, visit, bcwildfire.ca.

PEOPLE B.B. King
King reigned but the blues to live on in the musicians he inspired THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS - B.B. King believed anyone could play the blues, and that “as long as people have problems, the blues can never die.” But no one could play the blues like B.B. King, who died Thursday night at age 89 in Las Vegas, where he had been in hospice care. Although he kept performing well into his 80s, the 15-time Grammy winner suffered from diabetes and other problems. He collapsed during a concert in Chicago last October, later blaming dehydration and exhaustion. For generations of blues musicians and rock ‘n rollers, King’s plaintive vocals and soaring guitar playing style set the standard for an art form born in the American South and honoured and performed worldwide. After the deaths of Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters decades ago, King was the greatest upholder of a tradition that inspired everyone from Jimi Hendrix and Robert Cray to the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. King played a Gibson guitar he affectionately called Lucille, with a style that included beautifully crafted single-string runs punctuated by loud chords, subtle vibratos and bent notes, building on the standard 12-bar blues and improvising like a jazz master. The result could hypnotize an audience, no more so than when King used it to full effect on his signature song, “The Thrill is Gone.” After seemingly make his guitar shout and cry in anguish as he told the tale of forsaken
love, he ended the lyrics with a guttural shouting of the song’s final two lines: “Now that it’s all over, all I can do is wish you well.” His style was unusual. King didn’t like to sing and play at the same time, so he developed a calland-response, and let Lucille do some of the talking. “Sometimes I just think that there are more things to be said, to make the audience understand what I’m trying to do more,” King told The Associated Press in 2006. “When I’m singing, I don’t want you to just hear the melody. I want you to relive the story, because most of the songs have pretty good storytelling.” The blues is a lifetime gig and King kept at it even as his health declined, playing more than 100 shows a year well into his 80s. He believed touring extended his lifespan. “I got a chance to ride today on a very nice bus and from my window I can see how beautiful this country is and how nice it is to be alive,” he said once. “That to me is like extra vitamins.” From 1950 to 1970, he travelled about 300 days a year and spent the remaining days in the studio. In 1956, he and his band played 342 one-nighters. By 1967, he had made 30 albums and 225 singles. Keith Richards would recall touring nonstop with the Rolling Stones during the mid-1960s, then adding “That’s nothing. I mean, tell that to B.B. King and he’ll say, ‘I’ve been doing it for years.”’ King enjoyed acclaim and considerable commercial success,
Waltraud Lewis (nee Hesse)
of Trail passed away on November 30, 2014 at KBRH with her husband and son at her side. She was born on May 23, 1940 in Goslar, Germany.

acting the gentleman onstage and off. The blues was born of despair, but King worked in many moods, and he encouraged black youngsters in particular to make positive choices. “Most of the time when people say blues, it’s pretty negative,” King told a Houston audience in February 1992. “But I’m here to tell you, blues is a label that people put on a music that was started by black people, and you can choose between the negative and the positive.” King was named the third greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine (after Hendrix and Duane Allman, who died in their 20s, an age when King was just getting started). He won 15 Grammys and sold more than 40 million records worldwide, a remarkable number for blues. He was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His album “Live at the Regal” was declared a historic sound and permanently preserved in the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. His playing style influenced
performers from Otis Rush and Buddy Guy to Clapton, Hendrix, John Mayall and Mike Bloomfield. Musicians even named a section of the guitar’s neck after their blues idol, dubbing it the “B.B. box.” Usually located from the 10th to 12th frets, depending on the key of the song, it’s where King twisted and scorched many of his signature guitar licks. “Mr. King’s electric guitar can sing simply, embroider and drag out unresolved harmonic tensions to delicious extremes,” The New York Times wrote in a review of a King appearance in June 1992. “It shrinks and swells with the precision of the human voice.” Riley B. King was born Sept. 16, 1925, on a tenant farm near Itta Bena in the Mississippi Delta. His parents separated when he was 4, and his mother took him to the even smaller town of Kilmichael. She died when he was 9, and when his grandmother died as well, he lived alone in her primitive cabin, raising cotton to work off debts. “I was a regular hand when I was 7. I picked cotton. I drove tractors. Children grew up not thinking that this is what they must do. We thought this was the thing to do to help your family,” King said. A preacher uncle taught him the guitar, and King didn’t play and sing blues in earnest until he was away from his religious household, in basic training with the Army during World War II. He listened to and was influenced by both blues and jazz players:
T. Bone Walker, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lonnie Johnson, Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian. His first break came with gospel - singing lead and playing guitar with the Famous St. John’s Gospel Singers on Sunday afternoons from the studio of WGRM radio in Greenwood, Mississippi. Initial success came with his third recording, of “Three O’Clock Blues” in 1950. He hit the road, and rarely paused thereafter. King made his first European tour in 1968, played in 14 cities with the Rolling Stones in 1969, and made TV appearances, from “Sesame Street” to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” In 1989, he appeared in “Rattle and Hum,” a film about U2, and toured with that band. Music brought him from Mississippi’s dirt roads to blacktie meetings with world leaders. He gave a guitar to Pope John Paul II, and had President Barack Obama singing to his “Sweet Home Chicago.” In 2005, the Mississippi House and Senate declared Feb. 15 to be B.B. King Day. The blues great said he had never set foot in the Mississippi Capitol until then. He wiped away tears, and described it as his most proud moment. “I tell you I was in Heaven. I was so happy that I cried,” King said later. In the early 1980s, King donated about 8,000 recordings - mostly 33, 45 and 78 rpm records, but also some Edison wax cylinders - to the University of Mississippi, launching a blues archive that researchers still use today.
B.C. student wins $75,000 top prize at world’s largest high school science fair
THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - Forget baking soda volcanoes. One Vancouver student invented a new way to curb the spread of global epidemics for his science project and now he’s US$75,000 richer. Raymond Wang, 17, won first prize at the world’s largest high school science fair in Pittsburgh, Pa. on Friday. He created a new air circulation system to isolate and eliminate germs in aircraft cabins, in order to reduce travellers’ exposure to disease. “It’s truly amazing,” Wang said after winning the award. “After doing many national fairs, I’ve always wanted to be here. Not only that, but to be recognized as having one of the top projects is truly mind-blowing.” Eleven Canadian students won prizes at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, which featured 1,700
young scientists from across the world. Wang won the prestigious Gordon E. Moore Award, named in honour of the Intel co-founder. Wang, a Grade 11 student at St. George’s School, said he was inspired to look into epidemics after the recent Ebola outbreak. Although Ebola is not spread through the air, he came across some frightening statistics about other diseases, including that a plane traveller with H1N1 can potentially spread pathogens to 17 other passengers. “I started to look into, ‘Why isn’t anyone doing anything about this?’ I came across very limited research in terms of previous work to model air flow alone, just in cabins, much less trying to find any solutions to the problem,” he said. So the teenager set about finding a solution and was able to generate the industry’s first high-resolution simu-
lation of air flow inside commercial aircraft cabins, he said. He then applied some modifications to redirect the air to give everyone their own breathing space. The results were a decrease in pathogen inhalation by about 55 times per passenger and a 190 per cent improvement in fresh air inhalation, he said. “In the future, (this will) curb disease spread no matter where people are sitting in the cabin. So we can really effectively reduce the risk of future epidemics,” Wang said. Another Vancouver teen, Nicole Ticea, won the Intel Foundation Young Scientist award and received a prize of US$50,000 for her disposable and electricity-free HIV testing device. The easy-to-use tool provides results in an hour and should cost less than US$5 to produce.

Family of former politician angry at Christy Clark for announcing his death THE CANADIAN PRESS The family of a one-time British Columbia Liberal is angry with Premier Christy Clark, stating they specifically requested his death not be announced in the legislature. John Slater, 63, died unexpectedly last week and his passing was acknowledged by the premier who praised his community involvement and commitment to local farmers. A copy of her statement was later distributed to the media. Sylvia Slater, John’s sister, posted a letter on Facebook where she said her family specifically asked that an announcement not be made. According to Sylvia, within two hours of her brother’s death she had heard rumours of the planned announcement. According to her cell phone records, she phoned the office of Boundary Similkameen MLA Linda Larson at 11:44 a.m. requesting that her family’s privacy be respected. “Heedlessly at 1:32 p.m., Ms. Clark made a statement in the House about John’s death,” Sylvia wrote. “Could you have given us 24 hours, 12 hours, six hours? Could you have contacted a family member directly?” In an interview, Slater said
the family should have been contacted as to if and when a statement could be made. She said fortunately all family members learned of John’s death prior to reading it in the media. “He was a brother, father, uncle, nephew and son. To others, he was a friend and to many more he was a public figure and servant. “My question is, where is the line that deems on relationship more important than another and whose needs in a relationship should be first considered?” She acknowledged that her brother was a public figure but noted he had been out of office since 2012. “Shame on you Ms. Clark for again, not putting a family first,” she wrote. Born in Kelowna, John Slater moved to Osoyoos in 1980 where he operated several businesses including Desert Edge Nursery. Slater served on Osoyoos Town Council for 18 years including six years as mayor. He retired as mayor to seek the B.C. Liberal nomination and was elected as Boundary Similkameen’s representative in 2009, serving one term. He was not endorsed by the party for the 2013 election and dropped out of public life.
City losing $420,000 annually in unpaid tickets By Kevin Diakiw
Surrey North Delta Leader
One in four Surrey traffic tickets in the city will never be paid, The Leader has learned. The uncollected fines amount to about $420,000 annually. On Monday, Surrey bylaw officials released their quarterly report on bylaw actions. One of the highlights is the 13,579 parking enforcement tickets issued during that period. Less than half of those (5,572) have been paid, while five per cent (660) are being disputed. A full 35 per cent are outstanding and on their way to a collection agency. Surrey’s Manager of Bylaw Enforcement Jas Rehal said the city can expect to recover 30 per cent of those due to collection action. But it leaves a full 3,360 tickets that will remain unpaid over a four-month span – a figure Rehal says is admittedly high. He says in a typical year, the number of unpaid tickets will range from 10,000 to 12,000. With the average ticket being
$35, it amounts to $420,000 annually. Rehal is working with city lawyers to determine if there’s a way to collect the unpaid fines. In Vancouver, the annual parking fine loss tops $5 million, while other cities such as Burnaby and Richmond are failing to collect similar amounts as Surrey’s. Delta has no parking meters, so the number of tickets handed out annually is only 1,130. Hugh Davies, Delta’s manager of property use and compliance, said the amount of tickets that go unpaid in that municipality is similar to Surrey, at about 30 per cent. The annual loss of revenue is $38,000, Davies said. Rehal said the problem is pretty endemic through the region. “Most municipalities are trying to wrestle with this,” Rehal said Monday, adding he’s also liaising with other cities. “One thing we’re looking at is changing our collection methods,” he said. “Hopefully we’ll have something wrapped up in a couple of weeks.”
Fire crews suffer setback in battle against wildfire RCMP believe fire was human caused THE CANADIAN PRESS PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - A large fire raging in British Columbia’s Central Interior has grown dramatically over a 24-hour period, reversing some of the progress achieved by crews struggling to contain the aggressive blaze. The Little Bobtail Lake fire southwest of Prince George has ballooned more than 40 per cent since Saturday, from 170 square kilometres to 240 square kilometres. The increase was in large part thanks to unseasonably dry conditions in the region and heavy winds, with gusts peaking at 50 kilometres per hour, said Melissa Klassen,
a fire information officer with the province’s Wildfire Management Branch. “We had 20-percent containment as of Saturday morning,” she said, but by Sunday crews had lost part of that headway. “The area that was looking really good, the area that we’ve made a lot of progress in over the last couple of days, unfortunately, is one of the areas where the fire broached the fire line.” More than 300 personnel are on the scene in the Little Bobtail Lake area, with 270 firefighters, 13 helicopters, 22 pieces of heavy equipment and eight air tankers brought in to battle the blaze. The flames have forced the evacuation of about 80 people living around Norman
Agencies commit to scrutinize inquest’s review after mill blast THE CANADIAN PRESS PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Agencies targeted in a British Columbia coroner’s inquest are committing to review a number of recommendations made after a deadly sawmill explosion in Prince George, B.C. A five-person jury deliberated for eight hours Thursday before it released 33 recommendations and ruled that the 2012 blast at Lakeland Mills was accidental. The recommendations are directed at a variety of agencies, including WorkSafeBC, the RCMP, B.C. Ambulance Service and provincial, federal and municipal governments. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond said Friday her ministry will evaluate the situation and then take steps to ensure B.C. workers are safe. “We will do everything we can to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening again,” she said in a statement. Workers Alan Little and Glenn Roche died from severe burns suffered in the April 2012 explosion. More than 20 other employees were injured. It was the second fatal blast at a B.C. sawmill within months and raised alarm throughout the forest industry.

Lake and Bobtail Lake, while neighbouring residents around Bednesti Lake and Cluculz Lake have been put on evacuation alert. So far no buildings have been damaged. The RCMP said they believe the fire was human caused and have pinpointed where the blaze began, though investigations are still underway to determine its exact cause. Campfires were not banned in the area last Saturday when the fire broke out, though a prohibition on fireworks, tiki torches and grass burning had been imposed three days earlier. The level of fire activity in B.C. this early in the year is “way above normal” and could herald a b u s i e r- t h a n - u s u a l fire season for 2015, explained Klassen. “We are seeing larger and more intense fires than usual,” she said, adding that the flare-ups are more characteristic of fire

activity in July and August. “If we’re this dry right now we’re only going to continue getting drier.” The province’s Wildfire Management Branch is on the scene of a half dozen other fires, most of which were sparked by lightning in the Cariboo region on Friday. Many of those fires have been put out, though a small blaze near Pelican Lake, about 80 kilometres southwest of Quesnel, was 85-per-cent contained as of Sunday afternoon. Another fire, about three square kilometres in size near the Chilako River southwest of Prince George, was reported on Sunday. Cooler temperatures and lighter winds forecast for the coming days should offer some respite. The maximum penalty for starting a forest fire, as laid out in the province’s Wildfire Act, is a $1-million fine and three years imprisonment.

Sacrificing farmland for climate change
t was 2008 when word first surfaced that B.C. farmland was being bought up to grow trees as a European carbon offset. Reckitt Benckiser Inc., a British-based global manufacturer of household products such as Lysol spray and Calgon laundry soap, bought 1,500 hectares east of Vanderhoof and planted aspen. For comparison, that’s about the size of downtown Vancouver from 16th and Oak to Stanley Park. Since tree growing is permitted in the Agricultural Land Reserve, a use intended for fruit, ornamental or nursery trees, no permission was needed. And to meet the carbon offset rules of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change, a 100year restrictive covenant against harvesting trees was issued by B.C.’s land titles office. Goodbye farmland.
After that deal, the B.C. government changed legislation in 2011 to require permission from the Agricultural Land Commission to make these covenants valid. Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick says he is waiting for that process to be tested. It likely will be soon. Reckitt has bought another 7,000 hectares of cleared farmland from Prince George down through the Cariboo to Quesnel. NDP agriculture critic Lana Popham has been tracking these acquisitions, and she says there are more deals in the works. Last fall, the Bulkley Nechako Regional District wrote to Victoria Wood, Reckitt Benckiser’s “global head of sustainability,” telling her that “the planting of trees on centrally located and productive agricultural lands is not appropriate” and would weaken local farm economies.
FLETCHER B.C. Views
Wood responded that the RB Trees project targets only “marginally productive” land such as pasture, abandoned farms or those that have been up for sale for long periods. Former Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson raised the issue in the legislature in 2008, noting that Crown land near Vanderhoof had been sold for farming, bought by a numbered company and then “flipped” for around $1 million to RB Trees. Now mayor of Quesnel, Simpson takes issue with the company’s claims with his usual shyness. “It’s bull----,” he told
me. “This isn’t marginal land.” He said it includes prime alfalfa fields and historical ranch and forage crop lands. In one case, neighbours found out about the new use when they saw a helicopter spraying herbicide to prepare the area for tree seedlings. In the Cariboo as in other rural B.C. areas, aging farmers want to retire and young people keen to work seven days a week are in short supply. So naturally there is pressure to sell. Perhaps Letnick is right, and the ALC will stop productive farmland from being turned back into forest. While we’re waiting for that, here are a couple of other questions. What happens when these forests burn? The first big forest fire of 2015 grew out of control near Prince George last week. And since aspen doesn’t last 100 years, what is its real carbon offset value?
How’s that European carbon trading market doing? It’s a mess, with the cost of emitting a tonne of carbon dioxide fallen far below what’s needed to be effective, and Interpol investigating various schemes to game the system. Remember B.C’s own Pacific Carbon Trust? This Gordon Campbell brainchild to sell carbon offsets was quietly greenhouse gassed after the Auditor General revealed its first two big projects were of questionable value to say the least. Finally, does anyone really think that returning B.C.’s scarce farmland to forest is a good way to change the weather? Would it offset the loss of local production and trucking in farm produce from elsewhere? And where are B.C.’s tireless food security advocates on this dubious scheme? Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Letterman’s final show on Wednesday THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - You don’t think of David Letterman as a stop-and-smell-the-flowers type, but here he is, at a major turning point yet savoring his chocolate milkshake. Perched on a stool in a fast-food restaurant beside the Ed Sullivan Theater, where he has hosted “Late Show” for two decades but will do so only a bit longer, Dave unwinds from that day’s taping while, more than once, he comments on his shake’s deliciousness. Letterman has carved a place in cultural history with his pioneering brand of postmodern silliness that collared “Late Night” fans on his arrival in 1982 and subsequently was absorbed into the Age of Irony he played a major role in charting. This legacy-in-the-making was long ago coined “Lettermanesque.” But don’t talk legacy with Dave. He swiftly raises his deflector shield. “The real credit goes to the writers,” he insists. “It was their show that I was doing, especially early on. And then I got to a point I knew how to do what they were wanting me to do. “We had guys who had worked at the Harvard Lampoon!” he says, flashing a grin. “I attended university in Muncie, Indiana.” Now he’s nearing the end of a recordbreaking, surely never-to-be-matched run that exceeds even Johnny Carson’s 30 years on “The Tonight Show.” “God, it’s been 6,000 shows!” he says. “I used to have these conversations with (wife) Regina: ‘How much longer can I do this? How much longer do I WANT to do this?’ See NO, Page 8

No future plans FROM PAGE 7 “There’s no cure to being 68,” he sighs. So May 20 is closing night. And then? “I don’t know what’s gonna happen,” he says, beyond more family time with Regina and their 11-year-old son, Harry. “I hope it will all be good. It’s my responsibility to make it good. It’s not like heart surgery: ‘Could I get a little more morphine?”’ And if it doesn’t go so well? He grins: “I’m gonna be miserable for a long time.”

Letters & Opinion
Consider the concerns. From the point of view of the media, knowledge that such a practice exists can put genuine journalists under suspicion – and at risk. It compromises their position, possibly making it harder to get information in certain instances. The police, according to information being presented in the application, have used these tactics in several cases when they were investigating and hoped in this undercover way to gain information. In an eerie way, this resembles another controversial police practice: the so-called Mr. Big police sting, in which an undercover officer pretending to have gangland ties gets close to a suspect and, promising
inroads into the underworld, attempts to get information. It’s been successful. But it’s also been criticized because of the chance that the person under investigation might embellish his or her desperate acts to impress the ‘gang boss.’ It’s fair to say the public wants to see the police have the means they need to carry out successful investigations, to help keep the public safe. But let’s keep in mind any investigation that resembles a fishing expedition carries a high degree of speculation – results could be questionable. But the big concern here is investigations that could jeopardize the safety of another group represents an ethical dilemma that should not be a police tool.
Letters to the Editor Policy The Trail Times welcomes letters to the editor from our readers on topics of interest to the community. Letters lacking names and a verifiable phone number will not be published. A guideline of 500 words is suggested for letter length. You may also e-mail your letters to email@example.com
CREEK NEW IL

An editorial from the New Glasgow News Try posing as a police officer and see what happens. But apparently the other way around, cops posing as members of the media, for example, they consider fair game. Provincial police in Ontario say it’s a practice they rarely use. But three media organizations, CBC, Canadian Journalists for Free Expression, and RTDNA Canada, have applied to Ontario’s Superior Court to have impersonation of journalists by the police force declared a charter violation that can’t be justified. A lawyer representing the media organizations claimed the method was not limited to the Ontario Provincial Police.
Investigation that jeopardizes safety
By 2006 at the latest, he had joined the group then called Al Qaeda in Iraq, which was largely made up of jihadis from other Arab countries who had flocked to Iraq to fight the infidel invaders. And the founder of Al Qaeda in Iraq was none other than Abu Musab al Zarqawi – who parlayed the reputation as a major jihadi leader that the US intelligence services gave him into a real leadership position in the resistance. Through the years that followed, that organisation gained experience in guerilla war and terrorism, and through several changes of name and leadership (Zarqawi was killed in 2006) it ultimately morphed into Islamic State. Baghdadi was with it all the way, and now styles himself “Caliph Ibrahim”, demanding the loyalty and obedience of all Muslims everywhere. So we owe a lot to the “neocons” in George Bush’s administration who pushed for the invasion of Iraq: people like Dick Cheney (Vice-president), Donald Rumsfeld (Secretary of Defense), and Paul Wolfowitz (Undersecretary of Defense). They just used the 9/11 attacks as a vehicle for their pre-existing Iraq invasion plans. It was Wolfowitz, above all, who worked tirelessly to link Irak to terrorism. And guess who is the most prominent name on Jeb Bush’s current team of foreign policy advisers (apart from George W Bush himself). Why, it’s the very same Paul Wolfowitz. The problem with Jeb Bush is not the foolish answers he gives. It’s the company he keeps. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Canada Post, Hamilton square off over community mailboxes THE CANADIAN PRESS Canada Post and the city of Hamilton are bracing for battle - and municipalities across the country are watching to see who wins. The fight is over just how much of a say local governments can have over where new community mailboxes can be installed, with the city southwest of
Toronto saying the Crown Corporation is not respecting local regulations. Amid mounting concerns over safety, privacy and litter, the dispute between the mail service and the city is now headed to court. Canada Post is already facing a lawsuit from a union repre-
senting postal workers that wants the Federal Court to declare the cancellation of home delivery unconstitutional. And a group of Montreal-area mayors last week said they were considering joining the action, accusing Canada Post of ignoring their concerns. In Hamilton, local

officials say their dispute with the mail service has broad implications. “This really is a national debate,” said Hamilton Coun. Terry Whitehead, who has been dealing with a slew of resident concerns over the mailboxes. “Do municipalities, who are basically the government of the grassroots, have the right to create standards in the communities that Canada Post and utilities must follow?” Canada Post says it told Hamilton of its intention to transition about 36,000 households to community mailbox delivery in June 2014. It says it met repeatedly with city officials to seek input on mailbox locations. But somewhere along the way, as the mailboxes have been installed on strips of municipal land alongside homes, relations between the city and the mail service have
turned rocky. After hearing complaints over safety, privacy, litter and traffic when the mailboxes are installed in what they consider lessthan-ideal locations, Hamilton’s city council amended a bylaw, which now requires Canada Post to obtain a $200 permit per site to install the mailboxes on municipal land. Canada Post, however, ignored the bylaw, saying that under the federal Canada Post Act, it has jurisdiction over postal services and the legal authority to install community mailboxes on municipally owned property. When the city issued an order in late April for the mail service to stop installing the community mailboxes until it complied with the bylaw, Canada Post filed a notice in Ontario Superior Court asking for the bylaw to be declared invalid. The issue will be heard before a court later this month.

Montreal considers becoming first major Canadian city to ban plastic shopping bags THE CANADIAN PRESS Montreal is mulling a ban on plastic bags and the city would become the first major Canadian metropolis to adopt such a measure if it proceeds. Proposed bans have been controversial in some jurisdictions, with an attempt in Toronto a few years ago ultimately failing. Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre is in favour but wants a better understanding of the situation to emerge from public consultations that have just begun. “We have to think global but act local and this is one of those issues where we have to take a look at the impact on our planet,” Coderre said in an interview. The use of plastic bags has fallen dramatically in Quebec due to public awareness campaigns as well as a five-cent charge brought in by retailers. Quebecers now use roughly a billion bags a year, less than half from a decade ago. It’s a statistic Coderre acknowledges will loom large in the city’s final decision. “I’m firm (in my position) about that debate but I’m willing to listen,” Coderre said. “Should we totally ban them or look at an in-between solution?” Pierre Dubois, a sustainable development consultant with the Canadian Plastics Industry Association, says the consultation will allow his group to voice its opposition to the idea. “We think a ban is probably the worst way to solve environmental problems,” he said. Dubois said a bag ban would create other problems. If consumers forget their reusable cloth bags, paper bags and their larger carbon footprint would be the likely option at stores. Consumers who use shopping bags to dispose of waste would in turn have to purchase more bags. Coderre said when Montreal comes up with its plastic-bag plan, neighbouring towns and suburbs will follow their lead.

People are always al team since its inception in 2004.
Others, like 17-year-old outfielder Kelsey Lalor of Red Deer, Alta., are new to the program. Lalor, the youngest on the team, competed at the last World Cup in September. Like many of her teammates, she got into baseball at a young age and grew up playing with and against boys teams. “It’s great to come here and play with all these women who do the same thing that I do,” Lalor said. “We get to come together and prove to places all over the world that women can play baseball too and it’s a women’s sport. When people think baseball they think strictly men’s baseball or fastball, so this is an awesome opportunity to get the sport out there.” The women’s baseball competition will take place July 20 to 26 in Ajax, Ont. Canada, ranked fourth in the world by the International Baseball Federation, will compete against No. 2 United States, No. 5 Venezuela, No. 8 Cuba and No. 10 Puerto Rico. The Canadian women open their tournament July 20 against Cuba and play their top rival, the U.S., on July 24, the last day of preliminary play. “Our first game is going to be incredible,” said pitcher/first baseman Amanda Asay of Prince George, B.C., who’s also a PhD candidate in forest sciences at the University of British Columbia. “That’s going to be the first thing to really look forward to and then our game against the U.S., we always have a bit of a rivalry there, that will be exciting.”
The Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament has gone local with their 12th and final team. The last roster spot will be filled by the Grand Forks Blues. The Blues will feature mainly local players but are expected to add a few “ringers” from other communities to make them even more competitive. GFI coordinator Brian McAndrew said it will be great to have a local team for fans to cheer for. He also sees a natural rivalry between the Blues and the Trail Orioles. “Since it is our tournament, having a local team represent us is very important,” he said. “It gives us great community spirit which is important. That’s the thing about this tournament—it shows just how much community spirit we have here.” This is McAndrew’s first year as coordinator after several years on the board including two as vice-president. This year’s roster of teams features a strong assortment of teams from throughout B.C. and Washington State including the defending champion Burnaby Bulldogs and the perennial powerhouse Seattle Studs. Although the tournament lacks the international draw of a China or Russia like in previous years, McAndrew says it’s still high caliber baseball sure to thrill fans. “As far as the teams go, we’ve got top-level teams as we’ve always
had,” said McAndrew. “Their attitude about the GFI is that it is their favourite. It’s the best tournament that they attend and they all look forward to coming here each year and playing.” McAndrew said the GFI is more than just a baseball tournament—it’s an event. He said that the cancellation of the 2013 GFI is no cause for concern. It is a challenge organizing such a large-scale event, he admits. “The 2014 tournament had some of the best baseball yet with a final game that took everyone’s breath away after cheering the Burnaby Bulldogs to a heart-pounding finish,” he said. This year will be the 34th tournament in 40 years (1975 to 2015). The GFI runs from June 30 to July 5 and will encompass both Canada Day and the American Fourth of July. Local singer Amanda Thate will be on hand to sing the national anthems of both Canada and the United States. There is also a fly-over planned for the opening ceremonies. Putting on the tournament requires the coordination of a small army of volunteers. McAndrew said the committee is in good shape but good always use more helpers. “We need about 300 volunteers each year to do it,” said McAndrew. “In a town of 4,000, trying to get 300 ablebodied volunteers is a challenge.”

Canada claims first world title since 2007
THE CANADIAN PRESS PRAGUE, Czech Republic - Team Canada was perfect in Prague, capping an outstanding run at the world hockey championship with a dominant win over its archrival. After five straight years of quarterfinal defeats, the Canadians are heading home with world championship gold medals for the first time since 2007 after a 6-1 thrashing of defending champion Russia on Sunday at O2 Arena. Arguably the deepest team in a tournament rich with big-name stars, the Canadians ran the table in 2015 with a perfect 10-0 record. “Our guys really wanted to win - they really did,” said coach Todd McLellan. “I thought that we got a little extra motivation from the Russian team today,” said McLellan. “Their staredown in the warmup was just exactly what our team needed. We talked about which staredown would be more important - the one before the game or the one after. We decided the one after would be more important so we appreciated the motivation.” Sidney Crosby, Tyler Ennis, Cody
Eakin and Claude Giroux paced the Canadian attack with a goal and an assist each. Tyler Seguin and Nathan MacKinnon also scored. Crosby finished the tournament with 11 points and became just the eighth Canadian player to join the Triple Gold Club, adding his world championship win to Olympic gold medals in 2010 and 2014 and his 2009 Stanley Cup. “It’s a great honour,” said Crosby of the achievement. “I’ve been fortunate to play for some great teams. You know sometimes you just need some luck. I feel fortunate to be a part of it and it’s a privilege that we could do this as a group.” Crosby was quick to share the tournament win with his teammates. “That was really the story for the whole tournament. Everyone contributed, every line, both offensively and defensively,” said Crosby. “We had some guys did a great job on the penalty kill. Smitty (Mike Smith) was awesome in net. It was a total team effort.” Evgeni Malkin had the only goal for Russia, and star forward Alex Ovechkin was held off the scoresheet.
Russians leave ice before ‘O Canada,’ facing possible sanctions THE CANADIAN PRESS PRAGUE, Czech Republic Russia’s hockey team may end up paying for its Canadian anthem snub. Russian news agency TASS reported the Russian team is facing sanctions after players left the ice before O Canada. The Canadians crushed Russia 6-1 in Sunday’s gold-medal game, and most of the Russians quickly departed for the dressing room, a breach of the sport’s etiquette. Alexander Ovechkin, Yevgeny Malkin, Viktor Tikhonov and Dmitry Kulikov were among the few players who remained on the ice. “The IIHF has its own protocol and some sort of punishment will be handed down,” IIHF president Rene Fasel said in the statement to TASS.

lost in the finals for the second year in a row. Portage’s Zac Robidoux made 26 saves for the win as Guillaume Therien stopped 22-of-26 shots for Carleton Place. Valiquette opened the scoring for the Terriers at 14:17 of the first period. Ross doubled his club’s lead 2:42 into the second, but Robinson responded midway through the period for the Canadians to make it 2-1 after 40 minutes of play. Boyd and Brad Bowles scored powerplay goals early in the third period to blow the game open for Portage. Shawn Bowles made it 5-1 for the Terriers at 17:01 before St. Pierre responded late for Carleton Place. The Terriers went 2 for 8 on the power play while the Canadians
failed to score on five chances with the man advantage. In Saturday’s semifinals, Jordan Boyd had a pair of goals and Zac Robidoux only had to make 12 saves as the Terriers toppled the Melfort Mustangs 6-1. In the other semifinal, Jordan Larson scored 3:43 into double overtime as the No. 3 seeded Carleton Place Canadians edged the second-ranked Penticton Vees 2-1. Stephen Baylis had the other goal for the Canadians in the second period. Guillaume Therien turned away 36 shots for the win. Tyson Jost supplied the scoring for Penticton, which got 38 saves from Hunter Miska. Carleton Place failed to score on four power plays while the Vees were also went scoreless on five attempts.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner promised a finale that was “dramatic and appropriate.” He delivered. This incomparable drama set in the 1960s New York advertising world concluded its seven-season run Sunday night on AMC with a resolution that rang true to its spirit and likely left its devotees satisfied, even as they bade it farewell with regret. Spoiler alert: Read no further if you don’t want to know what happened. “A lot has happened,” Don Draper (series star Jon Hamm) tells Stephanie, a damaged young woman from his past, after his wayward odyssey from New York finally brings him to her doorstep in Los Angeles. Mainly, he is distraught after hearing from his daughter Sally, back in New York, that her mother, his ex, is dying of lung cancer. He phoned Betty (January Jones), declaring that he would take their three kids after she passed. She turned him down. She intends for them to live with her brother and his wife. “Please don’t let your pride interfere with my wishes,” she said coolly. “I want to keep things as normal as possible. And your not being here is part of that.” Stephanie, too, is a woman in need. But she, too, turns down Don’s offer to help. “Mad Men” traced Draper’s journey through the 1960s in his identity as a successful, charismatic but tormented ad man. The series’ end brought that phase of his life to a close. And it seemed that after a lifetime of running and shifting identities, he had truly dealt himself out of any meaningful relationships. Meanwhile, Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) and his estranged wife reunited, moving to a new life and his terrific new job in Wichita, Kansas, of all places. Roger (John Slattery) is making a third try at marriage - tying the knot with Don’s second exwife’s mother, Marie. Joan (Christina Hendricks) finds she can’t have it all. Her new man, Richard, a wealthy retiree who adores her, won’t accept her decision to start a promising new venture: a film production studio. See LEAD Page 14

Lead character ends role on positive note FROM PAGE 13 He wants her all to himself. For the second and presumably last time, he walks out. Joan remains her own woman. Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) is settling in at her new workplace, the giant McCann-Erickson ad agency, where she and Stan (Jay R. Ferguson), her art-director colleague with whom she has worked and bickered for years, finally realize what every viewer has long suspected: They’re in love. And what of Don? Deserted by Stephanie at a spiritual retreat, he hits rock bottom. Then, in a last-ditch encounter session, another man’s testimony of emptiness and self-loathing strikes a nerve in him. The man begins to weep. Don hugs him. They both weep. Through the run of “Mad Men,” Don has never been closer to anyone or tapped into such feelings in himself. “The new day brings new hope,” says a leader of a meditation group on a cliff above the ocean the next morning. “New day. New ideas. A new you.” Don, in a lotus position with his eyes pinched shut, seems at peace as he is last glimpsed by viewers. Is this the beginning of a new Don that can bring him bliss? (Ommmm.) Probably not. His only breakthrough is likely a creative breakthrough for an ad campaign, one of the most successful TV commercials of that era. The strong suggestion is that, reinvigorated, Don returned to New York and McCannErickson to redeem himself by creating the commercial with which the series ends: The classic 1971 peace-and-love Coca-Cola commercial where a hillside gathering of young people from all over the world, each holding a bottle of Coke, sings the jingle, “I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke.” The jingle carries the reminder that Coke, of course, is “The Real Thing.” From its start to Sunday’s finale 92 episodes later, “Mad Men” was a series that, as much as any series ever, helped TV grow up. It remained the real thing, even if Don Draper never was.

Fear of being alone not valid reason for staying Mailbox
Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell
keep my sanity and stop these fights? -- Need Your Help Dear Need: Let’s understand this. You are willing to put up with what sounds like frequent verbal abuse because you don’t want to move? Does Joe have any redeeming qualities that make up for his stubborn ignorance and disagreeable nature? We don’t see love here. We see fear of being alone. You cannot make Joe become a better communicator unless he works at it, which he won’t. Only you can decide whether you are willing to tolerate this in order to stay with him. Some counseling for you alone might be helpful. Dear Annie: Why do people pay so little attention to the proper pronunciation of
Dear Shepherdsville: Glad to help. Some kids don’t pay that much attention in school. And how your friends and family members speak can be a greater influence than what you learn in a short class. Rules of grammar, if not reinforced at home, often go by the wayside.
Standards have relaxed a great deal, but still, people who cannot correctly pronounce words are considered uneducated or worse, and it can affect the jobs they get and the people they attract, which shapes the rest of their lives. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and

certain words? This morning, I received a telephone call from a salesclerk, who informed me that something I had ordered was no longer available, but she had “fount” a similar item if I cared to substitute. I’d like to substitute “found” for “fount.” Also, I’ve heard several people say “ax” when they mean “ask.” An “ax” is something you use to chop wood. If the speaker had “axed her,” she wouldn’t be able to answer, now, would she? “Ask” should rhyme with “task.” Last week, for the umpteenth time, I heard someone say, “We are having a sells event.” The word is “sales.” You are having a sale where you hope to sell things. You are not having a “sell.” And why do people continue to say “I done this” or “I seen that” or “they come over yesterday.” These people have been to school and presumably learned the proper tense for verb usage. Why are we so careless in our speech? OK, Annie. I feel better now. -- Shepherdsville, Ky.
2015 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.
Dear Annie: I have been with “Joe” since his wife died nine years ago. The problem is, we have different styles of communication. At first, it wasn’t too bad. I have tried to analyze our fights to see what I could do differently or what we could do together to make it better. But I have settled on the fact that Joe can never be wrong, and it affects everything. He won’t do anything in a new way, cannot say he’s sorry for anything he has said or done, won’t admit to hurting my feelings, and often won’t believe what I say. Worse, when he gets an idea in his head, he won’t change it even when presented with new information that proves him wrong. And when I suggest he reconsider, he often makes comments that are below the belt and painful for me. It’s frustrating. Joe is 75, and I am 66. We live together and don’t want to move. I know he won’t go for counseling, nor will he believe anything he reads that contradicts his impressions. How do I

Koocanusa management plan in the works: MLA By Arne Petryshen Cranbrook Townsman
On top of the extra resources being allocated to Lake Koocanusa to attempt to keep order this long weekend, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett said longer-term plans are also in the works. Bennett has been working on a management plan for Lake Koocanusa that would provide additional Compliance and Enforcement throughout the summer season, as opposed to just the long weekends. “We have been meeting for the last year with the RDEK, the provincial government, the Ktunaxa and Columbia Basin Trust and we have a plan put together now that will see two Natural Resource Officers paid for by the Columbia Basin Trust,” Bennett explained. The officers will formally work for the Regional District of East Kootenay, though the money will come from the Columbia Basin Trust (CBT). “They have been very generously funding this management plan, and now they are going to fund these two Natural Resource Officers for the summer,” he said. “So people who camp out there will probably encounter these two resource officers and we’re going to take this summer and try to learn from the people who use the area what is most important to them, what we need to clamp down on, what we can leave alone, what sort of education is required.” Bennett said he is committed to continuing to allow people to camp on Crown land. “I don’t want to take that away. The two week rule will be enforced more than it has been in the past, so you can’t park your RV in the same spot the whole summer. You’re going to get two weeks, so somebody else gets an opportunity,” Bennett said. Another issue being looked at is where quads and motorbikes are going in that area.
“We’re going to be telling people you have to stay to the trail system,” he said. “We think that the majority of recreators who ride their quads and off road bikes out at Koocanusa during July and August are mainly from out of province. We’re going to see how our Compliance and Enforcement works to keep them on the existing trails, and off the grass lands and the riparian areas.” He said if it doesn’t work, they may consider a ban on motorized recreation during July and August. “We’ll consider that after this summer and we see how it goes,” he said. Two years ago, the provincial government changed legislation to enable Natural Resource Officers to act under all provincial legislation. “So before if you had a Forest Officer, they could act under their legislation — like the Forest Act and the Forest Range Practices — but they weren’t able to act under any of the environmental legislation because it wasn’t theirs,” he said. “So we changed all that so these Natural Resource Officers can actually charge people on any piece of B.C. legislation that exists, so they will have full authority to deal with any issue that they could encounter out there.” The officers are classified as peace officers. Bennett also noted that he didn’t want to give the impression that enforcement would be heavy handed this summer, though said it could be this weekend. Bennett also noted that there would be a lot of consultation before any sort of ban would be considered. Part of the consideration would be based on who is riding, he said. “If we get out there this summer and find that there are a lot of locals riding out there and they are staying on the trails, then clearly as the MLA, I’m not going to support a ban,” he said.
