279 students turn the page at graduation TRE VOR CR AWLEY

After 13 years in the provincial education system, high school students will be turning the page and opening a new chapter in their lives when they graduate from Mount Baker Secondary School on Thursday. While most of the 279 graduates will be sitting in Western Financial Place, waiting for their chance to cross the stage and receive their diplomas, there will be a

few others up at the podium as part of the ceremonies. Thomas Stambulic will represent his classmates as the valedictorian, while Mitchell Graw and Matthew Struthers will tag-team as the Historians. As the student with the highest GPA in the 2015 class, Stambulic was automatically nominated as the class Valedictorian.

CP investigated for parking train without hand brakes near Revelstoke RE VELSTOKE TIMES RE VIE W

CP Rail is being investigated for allegedly leaving a train parked east of Revelstoke without proper brakes being applied, the CBC is reporting. The report is based on a search warrant filed in a Calgary court. According to the CBC, Transport Canada investigators raided CP Rail’s headquarters in Calgary in May as part of an investigation into the alleged failure to apply hand brakes on a train carrying dangerous goods, including oil. The CBC article says the incident occurred the night of

Feb. 14–15, when CP Rail running trades employees were about to go on strike. It says superintendent Mark Jackson ordered the conductor and engineer to leave the train parked at Greeley, 10 kilometres east and uphill of Revelstoke, without the hand brakes applied. The train was later moved without incident. No charges have been laid. The allegations, if proven true, could result in a multi-million dollar fine. Read full story at: www.

Cruise Grad ceremonies celebrated this week Idaho coming to town Continued from page 1

B a r ry Co u lt e r

Cruise Idaho is coming to Cranbrook this week for an extended stay. Every year, a gathering of classic, special interest vehicles get together in Payette, Idaho, and head off on a tour — which is different every year. In 2011, 80 registered vehicles came through Cranbrook as part of this tour, and this year, 110 vehicles are making the journey from various parts of the U.S. And Canada. The 2015 Cruise Idaho started in Payette on Sunday, June 21, travelling to Missoula, Montana. On Monday, the tour set out from Missoula to Great Falls, Montana, and Tuesday it will cross the border into Canada, heading to Lethbridge. On Wednesday, the tour will arrive in Cranbrook, and spend the next three days here. The tour will check into the Best Western Hotel on Cranbrook Street, and the public is invited to come and check out the cars. On Thursday, June 25, the Cruise Idaho participants will host a show and shine from 4 p.m. To 8 p.m. At the Prestige Inn. Friday, June 26, will feature a garage tour for participants, and the tour will hit the road on Saturday, heading for Clarkston, Washington. While in Cranbrook, the Cruise Idaho tour is being hosted by the Rockin in the Rockies Car Club and the East Kootenay Antique and Classic Car Club.

“I think they’re pretty optimistic about their futures,” Stambulic said. “We’ve had a pretty good class, we’ve known each other for quite a long time.” Though commencement ceremonies tend to be riddled with cliches, it’s also one last time to reflect as a group on their journey

through the school system. Stambulic will be heading to the University of Alberta next fall for a undergraduate degree in biochemistry. While he has his plans already set, there are fellow students who have yet to see what their futures are like. “I know out of the

grad class, quite a few people haven’t decided what they want to do yet,” Stambulic said. “And I know quite a few are staying at the College [of the Rockies] and taking general courses and quite a few have already completed the ACE IT program and are heading into the trades.” For Graw and

Struthers, there was a more complicated process where they had to collect signatures, give an impromptu speech at an assembly with one other candidate and go through a ballot process afterwards. After winning the vote, the two have set their sights on putting their mark on the commencement ceremonies. “I know when I was writing it, I just had in mind a nice theme of togetherness,” said Graw.

“We did this together, we’re going to grad together, we’ve gone through these 13 years together.” Added Struthers: “We’ve shaped each other over the years as well.” There will be a trip down memory lane with what Graw called the ‘bad haircuts’ in middle school and the smelly markers and the gym parachutes that were a hallmark of the elementary school days.

After the summer break, Graw and Struthers are both planning to do some general studies at COTR in the fall semester. Graduation ceremonies begin at 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 25th at Western Financial Place. The next day, students will gather for Prom out at St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino at 7:30 p.m. for a reception before heading up to the College of the Rockies gym at 10 p.m.

Angling guides SUMMER SALE A BRATION getting permits › Prices in Effect June 22 - 30, 2015

Arne Pe tryshen

Fishing season is in full swing and angling guides are getting their registrations for permits in for Classified Waters. Those special designation rivers and lakes opened on June 15. “Right now it’s very busy, we’re handling many applications for angling guides and assistant guides,” Barry Comin, FrontCounter BC Manager, said, adding that it seems unusually busy this year. “It seems everybody left it late to start applying.” Comin explained that FrontCounter BC handles permits for angling guides, rather than requests from members of the general public. It is a branch of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. There are around 40 fishing guides registered in this region. “Each one of them would have

anywhere from three to ten assistant guides associated with them,” Comin said. “For example, one has 20.” At the time last week they were still processing the late applications. Comin said a big change for the guides is the application and payment is done online now. “But substantially the regulations around it haven’t changed,” he said. “For FrontCounter, it’s new to us to see this. It used to be managed through Purpose and Acquisitions Bureau. It was given to be managed by FrontCounter about a year and a half ago. It was new to us.” Comin said he was surprised at the volume of guides in this area. “It’s surprising to me that there is such a vibrant business going on out there,” he said. “I’ve seen them out there fishing, but I’ve never ran the numbers in my head.”

PTSD: The long way home

Military Ames Veterans Support Awareness For Veterans With Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Submitted

Ex-soldier Kate MacEachern is walking 2,700 km from Nipawin, Sask, to Chilliwack B.C. to raise awareness for PTSD and to raise money for service dogs for veterans. On Saturday, local veteran Kyle Dalum and his Irish Wolf Hound companion, Phelen, walked with Kate’s team into Cranbrook and to the Cranbrook Fire Hall. Unfortunately, on Saturday Kate’s PTSD did

not allow her to participate in the walk and fellow team member Lisa took over for her. Kyle proudly carried Kate’s 45 lb rucksack for the final 10 km into Cranbrook which Kate carries to signify the load people with PTSD carry every day. Kyle and Lisa were escorted into Cranbrook from Fraggle Rock by RCMP Jim Hagel, Fire Fighter Murray Robertson who drove Vietnam Veteran Lynda in the 1939 Internation-

al Firetruck. Kyle and Lisa were followed by The Long Way Home team. Not present were the two riders on horses who were having a veterinarian day and the accompanying motor home. Both veterans Kyle and Lynda, who are regular attendees at Military Ames social group were honored and proud to be a part of the campaign to raise awareness for PTSD and to support other

veterans. To see more of Kate’s journey and to support her cause, go to Kate MacEachern The Long Way Home. Military Ames, a local support/camaraderie group for veterans meets twice monthly in Kimberley and encourages all veterans who’d like to connect with brothers and sisters to join us.

Back to square one for Jumbo


fter 2½ decades of reviews under eight premiers, the B.C. government has sent the proposal to develop a $1 billion ski resort at the Jumbo Glacier site west of Invermere back to square one. Environment Minister Mary Polak did the deed Thursday, exercising her statutory authority to determine that the developer had not met the written-into-law test of having got the development “substantially” underway within 10 years of securing approval under the provincial environmental assessment process. While conceding that the decision was a judgment call on her part — determinations are made on a “case by case” basis and “no specific formula” is set out in law — Polak nevertheless insisted that it was the only outcome possible. She drew on submissions from her ministry, the proponent and two First Nations whose territories overlap with the site, backstopped by her own visit to the site on the eve of last October’s expiry of the statutory deadline. Pressed by reporters, she described seeing a first-floor slab for a couple of buildings, foundation anchors for a quad chairlift, some bridges, a well, and work-in-progress on roads and site clearing. Against that you had her ministry’s survey of the promised elements of the first phase of the project, including one gondola, two chairlifts, three glacier lifts, a mountaintop restaurant, two day lodges, a sewage treatment plant, and extensive overnight accommodations. “This does not mean that progress is required on every element of the Phase 1 but it is a useful comparator in considering the substantial nature of work completed,” wrote Polak in the reasons for decision. “While it is clear that some construction has been started, I am not convinced that the physical activity undertaken on the

various components meets the threshold of a substantially started project.” She took note of a complication brought on by her own ministry, which earlier this year advised the company that the buildings already under construction were “outside of compliance” with the environmental approval certificate because they were located in avalanche paths. “I have concluded that even if these partly constructed structures were weighted fully, the work undertaken would still not be sufficient to meet the substantially started threshold,” she wrote. Further emphasizing that Vaughn she had no choice, Polak noted that the initial environPalmer mental approval certificate was issued in October 2004. Then in 2009, the project was granted the one five-year extension permitted in law, which deadline is the one crossed last October, setting the stage for the determination she reached this week. In short, the proponent did to not appear to have made the most of the 10 years accorded him to get the project substantially underway. Likely there were other factors in the decision to proceed slowly, not least the declared opposition of one of the two First Nations whose territory overlapped with the site. “Whether or not the project is dead, that is up to the proponent,” Polak told reporters. But she didn’t dispute that the only option would be to “begin the environmental approval process again” — meaning from scratch. And so B.C. can likely say farewell to the touted $1 billion worth of investment, several thousand construction jobs, an estimated 700 permanent jobs, and a unique tourist attraction. “We have the potential here in this province to build something that doesn’t exist anywhere else in North America,” cabinet minister Bill Bennett, the project’s staunchest defender, told the legislature earlier this

year. “There is no high-elevation ski resort — skiing on glaciers — anywhere in North America. It doesn’t exist — it would exist if the resort was built at Jumbo.” In a province where proposals to build anything, anywhere near anybody — mines, pipelines, resorts, power projects, port expansions, you name it — will usually summon up a ready-made coalition bent on making sure nothing ever goes ahead, this week’s development will be celebrated as good news in the usual quarters. But if Jumbo Glacier fails to rise from the grave that Polak dug for it Thursday, the bad news implications have been well identified by her own cabinet colleagues. “Our government believes that 20 years is long enough and that this project should be going forward, because this side of the house believes in growing the economy,” said local government minister Coralee Oakes last year, defending the decision to jump start the project by establishing it as a stand-alone resort municipality with a cabinet-appointed council and $200,000 in provincial start-up money. “We believe in jobs. We believe in growing the economy. And this project is good for B.C.” Whatever one thinks of the merits of the proposal, there’s the telling fact that the project was first submitted for provincial government consideration in early 1991, when Bill Vander Zalm was still premier of B.C. “The twists and turns in government process over the years on this project are a disgrace,” as minister Bennett once put it. “All members should be embarrassed by the unjust way that this proponent has been forced to tread water for years by both political parties in this house.” Bennett wasn’t commenting Thursday. He said that in 2011. But the words are no less applicable today. Would-be investors take note. Vaughn Palmer is a columnist with the Vancouver Sun

Bandits get back in the win column Cranbrook knocks off ‘B’ Mariners in Polson; fall to ‘A’ Mariners in American Legion Baseball action

Taylor Rocc a Sports Editor

The Cranbrook Bandits bounced back into the win column Sunday afternoon, knocking off the Mission Valley ‘B’ Mariners 10-1 in Polson, Mont. After falling in backto-back contests against the Glacier ‘A’ Twins at Confederation Park Saturday, the Bandits headed south of the border for a pair of games, one against the ‘B’ Mariners and another against the Mission Valley ‘A’ Mariners. On the heels of Sunday’s 10-1 victory over the ‘B’ Mariners, the Bandits were unable to sustain momentum as the ‘A’ Mariners claimed an 8-2 triumph. In the opening game of Sunday’s double dose in Polson, rookie righthander Shayne Walker (4-2, 2.72 ERA) took to the mound and earned the victory in his second complete game of the season.

The 15-year-old native of Creston gave up four hits and walked three others while striking out four en route to the win.

As strong as Walker’s performance was off the bump, he received ample run support as the Bandits drove home five runs in the third inning to stake out a 6-1 advantage. Connor Armstrong (.246/.395/.344) had himself a day at the plate, going 3-for-4, driving in one run and scoring another himself. On top of the fifth-inning outburst from the Bandits bats, a four-run seventh inning sealed the decisive win for Cranbrook’s boys of summer. Zach Evertz was

tagged with the loss for the ‘B’ Mariners as he lasted three innings, striking out one. In the second outing of the day the Bandits were unable to keep the bats rolling as the ‘A’ Mariners scored four runs in the fifth inning en route to an 8-2 win. Right-hander Devon Marra (2-2, 2.14 ERA) started the game and was tagged with the loss after giving up four earned runs through 4.1 innings of work. The veteran struck out four before giving way to Armstrong (2-1, 3.17 ERA), who gave up one earned run in 1.2 innings in relief. The Bandits bats only mustered four hits in the contest, with Jake Bromley (.309/.371/.364) and Brandon Ouillette (.246/.392/.263) knocking the only runs home. The Bandits are set to travel to Libby, Mont., for tournament action this week, with games slated for June 25 though 28.

Former Kootenay Ice captain charged with felony cocaine possession Jarret Stoll facing up to four years in prison if convicted ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS - Los Angeles Kings centre Jarret Stoll has been charged with felony cocaine possession stemming from his April 17 arrest at a Las Vegas Strip pool. The Clark County district attorney’s office Jarret charged 32-year-old Stoll on Monday with one count of possession of a controlled substance. Security guards at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic pool complex found what police believed to be 3.3 grams of cocaine and several capsules of ecstasy in Stoll’s pocket during a routine search. District Attorney Steven Wolfson

wouldn’t comment on why the charge only included cocaine possession. Stoll’s attorney, David Chesnoff, says he has had discussions with Wolfson and hopes the case will be resolved shortly. If convicted, the charge Stoll carries the possibility of up to four years in prison or probation if it’s a first offence. Stoll played 245 games with the WHL’s Kootenay Ice from 1997-98 to 2001-02 and captained the club to its only Memorial Cup championship in 2002. Stoll amassed 124 goals and 286 points over the course of his WHL career.

ESPN says it obtained notebook documenting Pete Rose’s 1986 bets on Cincinnati Reds games ASSOCIATED PRESS

BRISTOL, Conn. ESPN says it obtained a notebook that shows Pete Rose bet on Cincinnati Reds games during his last season as an active player in 1986. The career hits leader agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball in 1989 after an investigation by John Dowd, a lawyer retained by

Major League Baseball, concluded he bet on the Reds to win from 198587 while he was a player and manager. Rose repeatedly denied the allegations before admitting in a 2004 autobiography he bet on Cincinnati to win while he managed the team. Rose became player-manager in 1984 and managed the team until the suspension in

Diego Maradona expected to run for FIFA presidency ASSOCIATED PRESS

CARACAS, Venezuela - A journalist close to Diego Maradona says the retired soccer star has told him he plans to run for president of FIFA. Journalist Victor Hugo Morales says on Twitter that the Argentine soccer legend has confirmed he’s a candidate. Morales hosts a show on the regional network Telesur. FIFA President Sepp Blatter announced this month that he would be stepping down - four days after being elected for a fifth, four-year presidential term - amid a U.S. probe into $150 million in bribes allegedly paid to top soccer officials. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro immediately called for Maradona to replace him. Maradona has been a high-profile supporter of Venezuela’s socialist government and a sharp critic of corruption in soccer.

August 1989. ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” said it obtained a notebook seized by U.S. Postal Inspection Service in October 1989 from Rose associate Michael Bertolini, which reflect betting records from March to July 1986. The documents are under seal and stored in the National Archives’ New York office, ESPN said.

Rose applied for reinstatement to baseball in September 1997 and met in November 2002 with Commissioner Bud Selig, who never ruled on the application. Rose applied again after Selig was succeeded by Rob Manfred in January. Rose is ineligible for the Hall of Fame as long as he is on the permanently suspended list.

NHL’s Oilers fire scouts CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have fired head amateur scout Stu MacGregor and head pro scout Morey Gare as they head into this week’s NHL draft with the first overall pick. The Oilers also fired amateur scouts Brad Davis and Kent Hawley, pro scout Dave Semenko, and Billy Moores, director of coaching and special projects. Edmonton’s scouting staff paid the price as the team has floundered at the bottom of the NHL standings in recent years despite having valuable draft picks. “We have to get bet-

ter drafting and developing players,” Oilers GM and president of hockey operations Peter Chiarelli said Monday. The Oilers had the first-overall pick for three straight seasons from 2010 to 2012, selecting Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov. Hall’s career has been hampered by injuries, Yakupov has been a disappointment so far, and the Oilers have been unable to find the right players to build around their young core. Edmonton has the first-overall pick again this year, and is all but certain to select phenom Connor McDavid.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might be fussier than you realize. Unexpected uproar could force you to regroup and rethink a problem. A loved one cares much more about you than you are aware. This person keeps trying to engage you in conversation; let it happen. Tonight: Know when to crash. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) There may be hassles to deal with, but your imagination will clear them up before they get any bigger. What a friend says will fit well with your present knowledge. Don’t just assume that this person is wrong; instead, learn more and make a judgment later. Tonight: All smiles. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Pressure seems to build on the homefront. You quickly will determine what is workable and what is not. Your mind is working overtime, as it knows that you need some answers. Curb a tendency toward sarcasm, as it will get you nowhere. Tonight:

Work off some steam. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Don’t hesitate to speak your mind and get a more insightful perspective. You might be surprised by someone’s news. Take time digesting what you hear. Is it possible you are not on the same page as this person? Express your feelings before you explode. Tonight: Out late. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Be aware of your finances, and don’t take an unnecessary risk. You could have a difficult time making a decision, as there is so much distraction going on around you. You actually might have more questions than you did before. Tonight: Know that an invitation could be costly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You are capable of achieving much more than you realize. Others, though touchy and unpredictable, will want to gain your favor or please you. Be willing to take the next step to move forward with a project. You might be reluctant on some level. Tonight: Out and about. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


Staying quiet might be the best decision, as so much is happening so quickly. You know that small issues are likely to go away with time. Expect many twists to today’s tale. You might hear news from a distance that makes you very happy. Tonight: Read between the lines. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Stay on top of a personal matter. Don’t be as forthright and direct as you tend to be. Words said now could provoke controversy later. You will want to rethink your approach to certain situations, especially as you see them change throughout the day. Tonight: Get some R and R. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might be taken aback by what is happening around you. Understand that a boss or parent feels obligated to say what he or she is thinking, even if you don’t want to hear it. A close loved one is likely to demonstrate his or her caring. Tonight: Listen to suggestions first. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be at a point where you feel as if you have no other

choice but to state what is on your mind. Someone might be concocting a plan that seems a bit off-base. Maintain a sense of humor, as others could be unusually stiff. Tonight: Listen to a friend’s suggestion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A partner or dear friend might want to establish dominance. You’ll feel inclined to let the situation play out and not make any dramatic changes. Your mind could wander off to many creative ideas when given some free time. Tonight: Don’t hesitate to ask for what you want. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You have so much on your mind that it might be difficult to stay focused. A partner or associate could be making demands. It seems to be this person’s way or the highway. Your best bet is to be ready for any kind of critical comments. Tonight: Say “yes” to a nice offer.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am 50 years old. After 10 years of marriage, I feel I must tell my wife of the reason for my declining ability to perform in the bedroom. After three months without intimacy, she requested that I see a doctor and I agreed to do so. However, what she doesn’t know is that in order to have a marriage with this wonderful woman, I have been suppressing my desire to cross-dress. I have been searching the Internet for days to find a therapist who can help me bring this issue out in an appropriate way. Many of the websites I’ve seen don’t appear to be professional. I don’t want to talk to my wife without a professional present because I fear disastrous results. I love her dearly. What do you suggest? -- No Life Without Wife Dear No Life: We suggest you contact The Society for the Second Self at and ask whether they can refer you to a therapist. You also can look online or in your phone book for a gender therapist or ask your doctor to refer you to someone. Please don’t keep your wife in the dark. She deserves to know the truth about what’s going on, and she can also be a source of support. Dear Annie: An office co-worker is getting married and she invited me to her bachelorette party. The plan was to take a limo and the cost was $60 per person. The maid of honor asked whether the price would be OK, and even though I thought it was a bit pricey, I agreed. The day of the party, two of her friends did not show up. Two days later, the bride and her maid of honor texted the rest of us to pay an additional $20 to cover the cost of the no-shows. I feel this request is tacky. Why am I responsible for friends who aren’t reliable? And isn’t this part of the cost of planning a party? You don’t expect your guests to pay for food that doesn’t get eaten. Why should we pay the limo costs for people who don’t show up? -Not My Problem Dear Not: While it is expected that bachelorette party expenses be shared, it is unfair to have everyone agree to a specific amount and then change it later. The planning was done with a certain number of guests in mind, and the extra amount due should be paid by the ones who didn’t show up. However, this is a woman you work with and will have to see on a regular basis in the future. We think $20, even in installments, is a small price to pay for maintaining peace in your office environment. Dear Annie: I have a solution for “Trapped by Nosy Nellie,” who is worried that putting up a fence will reflect poorly on them. She should tell the nosy neighbor that she’s considering adopting a dog and one of the requirements is a fenced yard. Problem solved. -- Dog Lover in Oregon Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Furlong had to respond to allegations of serious criminal acts: B.C. lawyer CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER - A lawyer for John Furlong says his client was entitled to respond to the “sustained attacks” of a journalist whose articles contained allegations of physical abuse against First Nations students in northern British Columbia. John Hunter says the former Vancouver Olympics CEO had the legal right to defend himself against what he described as two incendiary articles that attacked Furlong’s character. They were written in 2012 by Laura Robinson, who is suing Furlong for defamation in relation to comments he made after the stories

Missing motorist, injured hiker aided by Fernie SAR S a r a h K ucharski The Free Press

Fernie Search and Rescue (SAR) had a busy weekend when their services were called upon in two separate instances. On Friday, June 19, two brothers from Ontario were left stranded when their vehicle became stuck after crossing into B.C. from Alberta on a non-motorized pass. The vehicle in question had become stuck several times during its travel. During one such instance, the brothers became separated when one went to look for water, according to Simon Piney of the Fernie SAR. During the other brother’s tending to the vehicle, he crashed it down an embankment. Scrambling back to the road, the man walked to a maintained forestry service road and was

taken to Elko by some passing campers where he called for further assistance. In conjunction with the RCMP and the Civil Air Search and Rescue’s spotter plane, SAR members determined the approximate location of the missing motorist. He was found dehydrated and tired, but otherwise without further injuries. The two brothers were reunited in Fernie while their vehicle remains where it crashed, off Commerce Road or Middlepass Creek Road. In a second incident on Sunday evening, an injured hiker was picked up in the Three Sisters area. The hiker in question, a 27-year-old female Fernie local, was hiking with friends to summit the Middle Sister. The group became lost off the Olivia Creek

Trail from Hartley Road, falling out of signal range. In an attempt to get back into signal range, the group attempted to climb a steep slope up to a high point in an alpine bowl. The female hiker slipped in snow, sliding a few hundred metres down the slope and into some rocks. She sustained injuries to her head and pelvis. Two rescuers were dropped off to stabilize the hiker, while an additional three were used to assist with the extrication. “We were fortunate to find them when we did, as we were losing daylight and they were a long way off the trail,” explained Piney, one of the rescuers in the incident. “We are also grateful to Greg Goodison at Ascent Helicopters, whose expertise allowed us to get this young lady and her friend out of a very difficult spot.”

Wounded bear, shot with crossbow, put down by RCMP near Nelson Will Johnson Nelson Star

A wounded bear dragging its hind legs was put out of its misery on the North Shore by the RCMP at approximately 1:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.

“It looks like somebody shot it with a crossbow. The conservation officer had been looking for the bear and then it was located near Ridgewood Road,” Staff Sgt. Leanne Tuchscherer told the Star. “We heard reports that it was

dragging its two hind legs. It had been shot the night previous by a crossbow.” Tuchscherer said a member of the RCMP then shot the bear. Any further investigation will be done by the conservation officer.

were published. Hunter says he will argue that Robinson used her position as a journalist and the privilege of the courts to make untrue allegations that Furlong committed serious criminal acts. He says Furlong will testify about the impact the articles had on his life, including cancelled speaking engagements, a refusal to take on new commitments and psychological harm. Robinson’s lawyer has told court that Furlong’s decision to drop his own defamation case against the journalist meant her articles were true.

B.C. Mountie going to prison for lying at public inquiry into Dziekanski death CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER - A Mountie convicted of lying at a public inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver’s airport has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison. B.C. Supreme Court Justice William Ehrcke says the sentence for RCMP Const. Kwesi Millington had to denounce the officer’s actions and provide a deterrence. Millington was one of four officers involved in a fatal confrontation at

the airport in October 2007, when the Polish immigrant was stunned with a Taser and died. All four officers testified at a public inquiry into the death, and were later charged with perjury over accusations that they colluded to concoct a story about what happened. Each officer was tried separately, resulting in two acquittals and two convictions. Dziekanski’s mother Zofia Cisowski said she’s happy with the sentence, and that it brings some justice.

Beaufort Sea acidifying fastest in the world, new study says CANADIAN PRESS

New research suggests that Canada’s Beaufort Sea is becoming acidic at a faster rate than any other ocean in the world. A paper published in the journal Oceanography says that in about 10 years, the Arctic waters off the Northwest Territories will be more acidic for most of the year than they have ever been before. Lead author Jeremy Mathis of the U.S.-based National Oceanic and At-

mospheric Administration says nobody knows what the consequences will be for the sea life in those waters. But he calls the Beaufort Sea a bellweather for the rest of the planet. He says whatever ocean acidification does to the rest of the earth’s waters will happen in Canada’s Arctic first. Ocean acidification is a side effect of climate change, caused when the waters absorb too much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Notley apologizes to aboriginals for residential school abuse CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON - Premier Rachel Notley has apologized on behalf of Alberta to indigenous peoples for decades of abuse in residential schools. In a speech to the legislature, Notley also added her voice to those calling for a national inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women. Notley’s apology comes after the release earlier this month of a report chronicling generations of abuse inflicted on thousands of aboriginal

children at residential schools. Notley says Alberta legislators did not create the residential school system, but turned a blind eye to its abuses. She also urged the federal government to hold an inquiry into the root causes of the disproportionate deaths and disappearances of aboriginal women. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government has resisted such an inquiry, saying the issue has been studied thoroughly and that steps are being taken to remedy the problems.
