Seabird Island Band and Fraser Cascade School District (#78) recently signed a Local Education Agreement with a commitment to First Nations student achievement, strong literacy and numeracy, high graduation rates and a supportive educational environment which values Stó:lō language and culture. This agreement builds on the success of the partnership between Seabird and SD78 that has seen a rise in graduation rates of 35 per cent a decade ago to 65 per cent today. The LEA governs the educational relationship between Seabird and SD78 for some 65 students that attend public school. The Local Education Agreement (LEA 2015) was built on a landmark agreement negotiated in 2013 which focused not only on district approaches, but also individual school approaches. It featured a de-
tailed commitment to measurable results and promoted openness, communication and a partnership between Band, District, School and home. As part of the LEA, the Band, Schools and District meet quarterly to discuss results and collaborate to address issues that stand in the way of student success. This agreement places even more focus on measuring results, promoting strong attendance, and seeing strong collaboration between schools and First Nations parents. Chief Clement Seymour and Seabird Island Band have long been passionate advocates of education that promotes strong collective relationships and high standards. “This agreement builds on the success that we have seen over the last number of years raising literacy and numeracy, seeing many more graduates and ensuring that our children and their culture and
language is valued in the public school system," said Chief Seymour. "In light of the recent release of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (2015) and its accounting of the devastating effects of residential schools, this kind of relationship is a positive move forward and one which provides a positive future for our children.” Ron Johnstone, Chair of the Fraser Cascade School District stated, “We are pleased to be able to continue the effective working relationship with Seabird Island Band. During every LEA discussion that has taken place there has been one common and important theme; we are all here to make a difference for the children. Both parties are committed to doing everything possible to ensure that Seabird students are provided excellent opportunities to succeed in our schools.”

An air quality advisory issued Sunday afternoon for Metro Vancouver is continuing and has been extended to the Fraser Valley as a result of smoke blowing into the region from wildfires raging across B.C. Metro Vancouver air quality planner Geoff Doerksen said fine particulate concentrations from the smoke have hit levels never seen before across the entire Lower Mainland. "Seeing these heavy smoke levels mix down to the ground is unprecedented for our region," he said. The air quality objective for fine particulate is 25 micrograms per cubic metre measured as a 24-hour rolling average. Readings four times that level – 100 micrograms or higher – were recorded Monday morning at stations in North Vancouver, Burnaby and Vancouver, where the highest reading of 121.6 was at Sunny ERIN KNUTSON /THE STANDARD Hill Health Centre for Children.

Record pace set for fire season Tom Fletcher Black Press
The B.C. government has spent more than $80 million so far this year battling forest fires, on a pace for one of the worst fire seasons on record. There were 27 new fire starts reported in B.C. on Sunday alone, with 184 active fires being fought across the province and nine evacuation alerts and orders in effect as of Monday affecting 800 homes. Finance Minister Mike de Jong said the unusual early dry spell has provincial costs running ahead of 2003, where devastating fires at Barriere near Kamloops and in the Okanagan destroyed or damaged 238 homes and burned 12 wooden trestles in the Myra Canyon stretch of the historic Kettle Valley Railway. The 2009 fire season is the most expensive on record, with $382 million spent, compared to $375 million in 2003. Those years also saw prolonged drought, but it set in later in the summer. A tree-faller was killed Sunday while working on a fire on the Sunshine Coast, the latest reminder of the danger of firefighting. In 2010, two air tanker pilots were killed, and a helicopter pilot died fighting a fire in 2009. There is no budget limit for forest fire expenditures. While the costs have to be accounted for after the season, de Jong said he is more concerned with the continued carelessness of people despite the financial and human costs. "I was driving down the highway yesterday and I saw someone throw a cigarette out of their car," de Jong

said. "Give your head a shake. I don't know what is wrong with people who wantonly put other people's lives and property at risk." B.C. has often lent its experienced fire crews to other jurisdictions, but in 2009 more than 1,800 people were brought in from most other provinces, the U.S. and even Australia and New Zealand. That may be more difficult this season, with severe conditions across Western Canada.

B.C. wild west for elections? The man behind “HarperPAC” says it lived and died in a few days to make a point about third-party advertising in Canadian politics. When it launched, I wondered why he would choose such a deliberately provocative name. No, not “Harper,” but the acronym for “Political Action Committee,” which has come to symbolize the financial excesses of U.S. politics. HarperPAC ran one radio ad, accusing Liberal leader Justin Trudeau of blaming voters for his declining popularity, and suggesting that Trudeau’s “months of mistakes” are a likelier cause. No kidding. HarperPAC spokesman Stephen Taylor, who like Stephen Harper before him has worked for the National Citizens’ Coalition, announced the end of the project last week.“We have contributed to a new discussion about political financing in a fixed election era that is critical to our democracy,” Taylor said. “We note that this discussion only occurred once a right-wing analog of the left’s PAC-style efforts emerged on the scene.” Indeed, it was when HarperPAC emerged that muttering began about “dark money” in Canadian politics. Unifor, Anti-Conservative front LeadNow and the many faces of the Tides Foundation somehow failed to ignite much discussion in the Canadian media. Taylor launched the bid in response to the emergence of “Engage Canada,” a union-financed action committee that he said was part of a broader effort by the left to oust the Conservatives. Engage Canada portrays itself as a brave alternative to shadowy right-wing groups such as Working Canadians, which has also run pro-Conservative ads. Engage Canada’s latest ad plays on the union movement’s cherished “inequality” theme, selecting statistics to portray the wealthy as making out far better than the rest of us in Harper’s Canada. (The notion that “inequality” can and should be fixed by ever-higher taxes on “the rich” staggers on, zombie-like, as if capitalism was the cause of poverty.)Two recent developments have led to all this. Scheduled elections every four years have finally taken effect at the federal level, after a series of minority governments. And courts have repeatedly struck down efforts to restrict third-party spending in the so-called “pre-campaign” period as an unwarranted restriction on free speech. The B.C. Liberal government tried and failed several times to restrict third party spending, largely in response to the million-dollar tirades of the teachers’ union. Former attorney general Wally Oppal used to warn about American-style influence by wealthy interest groups targeting scheduled elections.Their strategy was not so much to keep corporate money out of B.C. politics as to keep it flowing through the B.C. Liberal Party. This spring the B.C. Liberal majority passed Bill 20, the Election Amendment Act. Not only did this recognize the freedom of outsiders to weigh in on elections, it also did away with pre-campaign restrictions on registered political parties and candidates. Black Press
Outlook cloudy for climate policies Tom Fletcher Black Press
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau came to Vancouver last week to unveil his environmental platform for the Oct. 19 federal election. Trudeau promised an overhaul of the National Energy Board and a vaguely defined intention to work with provinces to impose a “price” on carbon dioxide emissions across the country. Trudeau’s media tour took him to the Burnaby facilities of General Fusion, where, like Premier Christy Clark a few weeks before, he stood at his podium before a prototype fusion reactor. This massive octopus of pistons and wires is an attempt to capture the nuclear reaction that powers the Sun and other stars, containing its fury within steel walls and magnetic fields. The old joke about controlled fusion is that every 20 years, scientists tell us it’s just 20
years away. If it ever is developed, such a process could quickly put an end to our handwringing about fossil fuels, largely replacing them with endless, emission-free energy. This is the type of technological revolution that Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s officials indicated would be needed, after Canada announced a pledge with other G7 leaders to make their economies carbon-free by 2100. That’s right, some time within the next 85 years. Clark visited General Fusion in May to announce her new climate action advisory panel, which has to give her a plan to take to Paris next December. That’s the next big United Nations climate summit, where Trudeau hopes to lead a delegation of premiers to stop the flow of “fossil awards” given to Canada by people in polar bear suits. Asked about the fusion reactor she had just toured, Clark laughed off the question, comparing it to the “flux capacitor” used for time travel in the Michael J. Fox movie Back

to the Future. Trudeau recently told university students that we need to change our concepts of time and space, and he didn’t seem to be kidding. The point here for voters is that all these leaders, Harper, Trudeau, Clark and many others, are talking down to you. You aren’t sophisticated enough to understand this climate business. The Pope has weighed in, assuring us that carbon trading systems are not going to cut it. This is a rebuke to California, Quebec and the European Union, where effective carbon trading is, like controlled fusion, just around the corner. Pope Francis warned that our “throwaway culture” views nature “solely as a source of profit and gain” and so people won’t voluntarily do the right thing. (The results of the Metro Vancouver transit plebiscite could be interpreted this way, if you ignore the bumbling, waste and political posturing that really did it in.)

gent need” for a “true world political authority” to impose order on the greedy capitalist humans that infest our beautiful planet. Presumably this would be the run by the UN, so my advice is to start hoarding candles and cat food now. B.C.’s frozen carbon tax has ceased to have much effect, with gasoline consumption back up over 2008 levels amid the usual volatility of prices. Gasoline is going for around $1.30 a litre, despite the prolonged slump in crude oil prices, and people have basically forgotten about this tax on top of all the other gas taxes. Perhaps B.C. can brag in Paris about the Pacific Carbon Trust, which limps along after its near-death experience in 2013. The trust continues to divert tax dollars from B.C. government operations to purported carbon-saving activities, including paying coastal First Nations not to log the portions of forests that they demanded be preserved.

Mr. Mayor, shake your head Mr. Mayor, you sure read the petition differently than I did, suggesting that the hundreds of individuals who signed - tarnish the firefighters – get real your honour. The petition says nothing about the firemen. We want the 10 we currently have, but need more. We are asking you to look into the policies and management of the Hope Fire Dept. Why are you, the Mayor, making such a big deal of this? We elected you to look after our town, so get on with the job please. Socializing in the fire department is a big deal in my mind. I was chief for a time and had 20 members in Hall One and there were 20 in each of the two other Halls. Glenn Wejr, a long time Hope resident, business man and former firefighter, paid me a very nice compliment last week saying the 25 years he belonged to the Dept. were the best years of his life (wow.) Things we did while I was chief: • kids picnic at 6th Ave park – we let the kids ride on the fire truck with sirens and lights on • Christmas parties with Santa – Neil Martin and John Linza looked after the food – we never went hungry • golf & curling parties • we installed 50 smoke detectors with the help of the Hope Lions Club, in the senior citizen's home and homes that didn't have them
• Cheyenne Sports organized Slow Pitch with 32 teams signing up. The Fire Depts had four teams. Glenn even let me play a couple of innings in right field. The rest of the time I sat in the dug out and watched Al Trick hit it out of the park and Emil Farlin playing short stop. • Booze in the fire halls – at the Fire Chief 's convention, which I attended many times on the taxpayer's money (thanks,) the topic of alcohol in halls often came up with many positive remarks. I believe there should be time for a beer in the firehall after a fire to talk over what was good and bad (even the quiet guys talked after a couple of cold ones.) Mr. Mayor, all we are asking is for you to look into the fire department. The job we elected you to do is to lead not to criticize. We need all the firefighters we have (even the one with the beard.) PS. When is the next election? PPS. Alcohol – because no great story started with someone eating salad! Wilfried, shake your head. Dick Gardner Hope
Wildfires, and a plan of action? According to a report in the Vancouver Sun, the Surrey Fire Department responded to 60 small fires last Sunday, all of which were caused by careless smoking. Here in Hope, we can tell people using the trails to leash their dogs and to pick up after them. We can warn the community about falling branches in windy conditions, but we apparently can’t put up NO SMOKING signs warning of the extreme fire danger.
My original letter written on June 25, was polite and not critical of the fire chief or anybody else for that matter. It gave him, however, the opportunity to tell us how well prepared, in terms of equipment and firefighters, the fire department is to deal with a wild fire emergency. His silence should be of concern to us all. It may mean that as the crucial first responder, he does not have the means to fight a wild fire. He poten-

Gosh it is hard to think about an upcoming national election while in the midst of summer. With so many things to see and do, summer trips, barbecues and parties, the beach and reunions, it is the furthest thing from our minds. However, some of us might find that we have more time on our hands - an excellent opportunity to ask our local MP's about their party's platform. I, for one, want to know which party will commit to getting us closer to the goal of 0.7% of GNI for international aid spending. Please note that 0.7% is LESS THAN 1%! Can we not find it in our hearts and in our pockets to give those less fortunate a hand-up? Our aid contributions stand at just 0.24% of GNI, and have dropped from $5.65 billion in 2012, to $5 billion in 2013, to $4.2 billion in 2014. Meanwhile, the UK has passed a bill that enshrines in law its commitment to spend 0.7% of its gross national income (GNI) on aid every year, making it the first G7 country to meet the UN’s 45-year-old aid spending target. In 2013, only five other countries – Sweden, Norway,

world trodden step, as he proudly extended his hand and introduced himself with a beaming and gracious smile as David Rempel. Not knowing the extent of his accomplishments, I had no way of knowing that Rempel was indeed, Dr. Dave Rempel, who was born on September 3rd, 1938 in a little town in Southern Ukraine at the foot of the junction near the Black Sea. He immigrated to Canada in 1949 with his mother Anna (who according to Rempel was beautiful, extremely independent and very much alone throughout her life) as a result of the ramifications of World War II. Ever modest in his approach — the wiry and polished teacher, Rotarian, School Board Trustee member, husband to Sharon Kincaid (who kept her surname) and father of two (Jacqlyn and Julya — both adopted and who carry the namesake Anna in honour of his late mother) has an energy that can only be described as infectious. Rempel is clearly a man on a mission, as he proceeded with an air of confidence to describe his grand scheme to bring former students of Coquihalla Elementary School together, as well as the community of Hope to have himself roasted in an event called Rem-

pel’s Roast. The roast will be an opportunity to get back at Rempel for his extraordinary teaching methods (including an infamous duck walk, which was given as punishment to students for missing gym strip or tardiness.) “I bet you can’t guess how old I am,” he said of his appearance, which has changed little over the decades that followed his sevenyear reign at Coquihalla Elementary School from 1964 to 1971 — a side note taken from several conversations with former students on Rempel’s timelessness. Baffled, I stare at a Rempel who could pass gracefully for a man in his early 60’s and do the only reasonable thing I can, I shrug my shoulders. “It’s good genes,” said the 77-year-old, as

he smiled back at my stupefied expression. Rempel’s love and passion for life, are clearly a recipe for good health and seem to have held the terrible hand of father time at bay. Carrying with him on our first meeting was an elegant tan coloured briefcase, a briefcase full of photographs and letters pertaining to a glorious era for students and teachers alike, a time not forgotten, but perhaps made murky with the dust that’s settled over four decades. One thing was clear as he held the briefcase as carefully as one might hold a lost treasure, Rempel had spent a lot of time collecting keepsakes from his students over the years. He started to describe the mysterious contents:
Each letter (Rempel has dozens of handwritten letters from students) and photographs came alive as he recalled various sports teams, intramurals, zany, carefree and totally uninhibited red-tape-free outings (some that ended in disaster, but most were successful) to exciting locations like Seattle and even Russia. He recited the trials and triumphs of his students at Coquihalla Elementary School during the late 60’s. Faces of boys and girls smiled back at me from the pictures, some with trophies, others hanging out, or sporting the traditional bowl cut of the 60’s and the time revealing knee high gym socks.

Somewhere over the rainbow From 8
One of his letters reads: “Dear Mr. Rempel, I am writing on behalf of the Youth Walk to thank you for letting us have the money for the walk and for helping us so much,” said Sharon Simpson, former Coquihalla Elementary student. It was a golden era, where Rempel thrived as a handson teacher, who never tired of his students or spending time with them after school, during the many extra curricular activities that he often organized. These activities are not as easy to come by in today’s education system, a system according to Rempel that has gotten caught up in bureaucracies that made the freedom he and his student’s enjoyed in the 60’s almost impossible by today’s standards. “I remember the duck walk,” said Tara Crofton, former Coquihalla Elementary student. “You only did it once and that was enough, it was a sort of punishment — my quads still hurt.” The punishment required kids to squat into a duck like position and walk back and fourth across the length of
the gym. “He had a way of inspiring faith in someone and increasing a student’s confidence,” said Crofton, of Rempel’s ability to encourage the talents and abilities of his students. “He thought outside of the box.” The sports enthusiast, also spent some time as a stage manager for school theatre productions in a bid to stop a war with the drama and music teacher about access to the gym. Rempel taught all subjects, along with his forte, which was physical education. He spoke candidly about his one time dream of becoming a minister, but instead used his Bachelors in Education from UBC to minister to hundreds of kids. “It energized me,” he said. “It’s about giving — you get more out of giving.” The vibrant patriarch and Mennonite who cites his faith as a huge source of inspiration and a steady stream feeding his outgoing nature, calls Maple Ridge home and is also a pioneer of BC EMU Industry. He houses a bird sanctuary that has seen over 3,500 visitors on a plot of land
near water, which is where he envisioned spending the quiet period of his life — though Rempel seems to continue at a fervent pace that people half his age might balk at. “My wife gave me a flock of black swans for Valentine’s Day,” Rempel nonchalantly mentions of the couple’s love of wildlife. My jaw drops, as I try to wrap my head around the romantic imagery of being gifted a gaggle of the black feathered beauties. Rempel continues without missing a beat, listing name after name of his former students and the amazing trips they took including overnight camping trips, cycling trips and the time he slept in. “I still remember the principal at the time coming over to my house — he never let me forget it,” he said of his rare late appearance. “The kids were scheduled to go to the library and went without me — proper education teaches independence.” He continued to list a dozen different names of kids, including their abilities and accomplishments — which he still remembers in great detail. “He’s very loyal to his
friends and I’ve known him for approximately 60 years,” said Vern Giesbrecht, long time friend of Rempel’s. “He’s always had a lot of energy and he’s always on the go — he takes on a lot of projects and he had a great influence, not just on the kids, but the teacher’s as well.” The life enthusiast also managed Rainbow’s End a local band Hope resident and former student Victor Smith played in for a few years. “He was always fun and made jokes and stayed positive,” said Smith. Smith played the organ and chalked the experience up to a great time that gave him the ability to learn about teamwork, interacting with people and communicating ideas to the crowd.

Before I even started looking I warned him the chances weren’t good. I knew I had tons of photos from the last five years of Charlie with his sister, and with our children, but even though I was with the dogs the majority of the time, I wasn’t sure if I’d ever had my picture taken with either one of them.

Mental health for children and youth Dr. David Smith
Psychiatrist and medical director of the Okanagan Psychiatric services for Interior Health.
For children and teenagers in BC, coping well with the demands of school work, busy schedules and social relationships in today's chaotic world reflects resilient mental health. But some BC children and youth are unable to cope well with the daily stresses of their lives and the results can be debilitating or tragic. An estimated 13 per cent of youth in BC each year experience a mental health issue —that means up to 83,700 children under the age of 19 in BC may be suffering. Studies show that receiving appropriate help at the right time may enable a child or youth to return to good health or prevent the escalation of symptoms, warding off larger crises or more chronic illnesses, and even at times saving young lives. But unfortunately, the majority of youth experiencing a mental health issue, or their families, do not seek help. Why is this? There are likely a number of key factors:
youth and family may lack understanding about mental health issues or may be unable to recognise the symptoms of a mental health problem; they may not know how to access the right services, who to see, or how to navigate BC's mental health system; they may be worried about possible stigma, or labelling, and hoping it is simply a "phase" that will pass. As an adolescent and adult psychiatrist working for the last 11 years in Interior Health (IH), I appreciate how frightening and worrying it can be for youth and families when a mental health issue arises. But I also know that the right help can make all the difference and that good recovery is possible even with some of the most serious of mental health concerns. And "help" does not always mean treatment with medication. In fact, many mental health problems in children and youth can be very successfully treated with other techniques, particularly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which, in essence, teaches skills to address the thoughts, feelings and
behaviors that underlie a mental health problem. Working with a group of mental health colleagues in the Interior and on Vancouver Island—including families with lived experience, mental health clinicians from the Ministry of Children and Family Development, health authority professionals, school counsellors, family doctors, pediatricians and others — we have come up with a series of short columns to run in this paper to help youth and families recognize and understand some common mental health concerns. In 10 articles, we will talk about issues like anxiety, depression, substance use, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia and family support. We will help you recognize the symptoms and know when and how to seek help. We will talk about successful skills, actions and treatments. These columns, as well as running in your local paper, can also be found at http://www.sharedcarebc. ca so you can access them online or share with friends and family.

With a few keystrokes you can sample thousands of opinions, aľoat in a sea of information. But as the volume increases, the accuracy and reliability of professional journalism is essential. Gathering and sorting the facts, weighing and interpreting events, and following the story from beginning to end is more important than ever.
With the Fraser Valley and much of B.C. covered with a thick haze of forest fire smoke, the BC SPCA is encouraging animal guardians to refresh their emergency pet preparedness. Several new wildfires as well as old ones have caused evacuation orders and states of emergency in several B.C. communities, prompting people to leave their homes as quickly as possible. “When you’re ordered to evacuate, you need to do it as soon as possible, and people don’t necessarily think about their pet in an emergency situation until it’s too late,” says BC SPCA general manager of community relations Lorie Chortyk. “You don’t have time to gather up everything you need if you have to get out of your home right away.” Evacuations are usually a busy time for staff and volunteers at the province’s BC SPCA branches, as they provide extra shelter, pet food and pet-related equipment such as crates and leashes for pet guardians and animals. “When you’re in a hurry, it can be easy to forgot feeding bowls, food, leashes, everything,” Chortyk says. “That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and be prepared for any emergency. People love their pets but it often doesn’t sink in that an emergency can happen at any time.” Having an emergency pet kit handy is key, as well as ensuring your pet is already wearing a collar with up-to-date contact information, Chortyk notes. Keeping your pets inside the house so you don’t need to search for them is also a good idea, as is having emergency pet boarding plans in place.
Items to include in an emergency kit for your pet(s) include: · A seven-day supply of food and water · Identification tag and collar · Sturdy crate and/or carrier · Pet first aid kit · Blanket/plastic bags · Leash, harness · Food and water bowls (collapsible are great) · Litter box and litter for cats · Manual can opener · Copy of your pet’s current vaccination history · Any special medications and instructions “No one likes to think an emergency like a wildfire or an earthquake will happen. But in the event it does, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared – for themselves and for their beloved family pets,” Chortyk says. Visit spca.bc.ca for more information, or contact Lorie Chortyk, general manager, community relations, BC SPCA, 604-647-1316 (office) or 604830-7179. The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization funded primarily by public donations. Our mission is to prevent cruelty and to promote the welfare of animals through a wide range of services, including cruelty investigations, emergency rescue and treatment, sheltering and adoption of homeless and abused animals, humane education, advocacy, farm animal welfare, spay/neuter programs, and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.

Time took you away too soon, our hearts were broken, there were still so many words left to be spoken. Although our lives were so far apart, you were always in our heart. We never ask for miracles, but today just one would do, to have the front door open and see you walk through. We might be selfish, we wish you were here. “Hallo Canada calling” we would love to hear. Deep in our hearts our memories are kept, of you, and we will never forget.
Your loving wife Elizabeth

We sadly announce the sudden passing of our beloved Georgina Campbell. George will be missed by her many relatives and friends. She will be forever in our hearts. She enjoyed being active in the Boston Bar community working with the youth and elders. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 11th at 10am at The Longhouse at Tukkwiowhum Heritage Village, Anderson Creek just south of Boston Bar BC.
Our mother Lillian passed away peacefully at the Central Okanagan Hospice House in Kelowna, BC. She was 96 years young. She is survived by sons Jim (Donna) and Jack (Alana); 5 grandchildren: Todd (Tina), Chad, Nathan, Marshall and Shawna (Brodie); great granddaughter Ivy. She is also survived by two of her sisters, Grace Oliver and Maizie Howard, sister-in-law Marion Ryan and many nieces and nephews. Mom was predeceased by our father Art in July, 2012. They had been married for 66 years. She has really missed Dad these past 3 years and now they will be united again. She was born in Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan on April 30, 1919 and after high school graduation she trained as a registered nurse at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon. Mom and Dad lived in Hope for 54 years where she was a member of the Eastern Star. For the past 9 years Mom has resided at Lakeshore Place Assisted Living Center in Kelowna. Mom will be buried with Dad at a family ceremony in the Legion Cemetery in Hope. All of us will surely miss her as we have our Dad. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting w w w. s p r i n g f i e l d f u n e r a l home.com, 250-860-7077.

Notice of Proposed Local Revenue Laws and invitation to make representations NOTICE IS GIVEN, pursuant to section 6 of the First Nations Fiscal Management Act (hereafter referred to as the “FNFMA”), that the Shxw’owhámel First Nation (“The First Nation”) proposes to enact the Shxw’owhámel First Nation Property Assessment Law, 2015 and the Shxw’owhámel First Nation Property Taxation Law, 2015 (hereafter referred to as the “Proposed Laws”).
DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED LAWS: The Proposed Laws are a property taxation law and a property assessment law, both made under the authority of section 5(1)(a) of the FNFMA. The property assessment law provides for the assessment and valuation of interests in land on the reserve lands of the First Nation, including appointing assessors, inspecting property, preparing assessment rolls, and mailing assessment notices. The property assessment law also provides a process for reconsideration of assessments and for a right of appeal to an independent assessment review board. The property taxation law establishes a taxation regime that taxes interests in land in the reserve, and includes provisions for exemptions, grants, preparing tax rolls and tax notices, the levy of penalties and interest on unpaid taxes, and the collection and enforcement of unpaid taxes. A COPY OF THE PROPOSED LAWS may be obtained from Jesse James, Band Administrator, at the Shxw’owhámel First Nation offices, or obtained online from the First Nations Gazette, Part I: Notices, at www.fng.ca.
COUNCIL OF THE FIRST NATION INVITES WRITTEN REPRESENTATIONS regarding the Proposed Laws. Written representations may be made to the Council for 60 days after the date of this notice. Persons wishing to make a written representation must deliver the document containing the representations to: Si:yam Council, Shxw’owhámel First Nation, 58700A St. Elmo Road, Hope, BC, V0X 1L2. Representations should be made on or before 4:00 pm, September 8, 2015 in order to ensure consideration by Council. Before making the Proposed Laws, Council will consider all written representations received in accordance with this Notice. Please note that Council is not able to extend the public notice period.
CONTACT INFORMATION: For further information or questions regarding the Proposed Laws, this Notice, or the making of written representations to Council, please contact Jesse James, Band Administrator, at 604-869-2627.
