Water park proposal gets green light

Carole Rooney Free Press

The money to fund a lift station for a water park in Centennial Park got a thumbs up from the South Cariboo Joint Committee (SCJC) on July 14. Providing the 100 Mile House Waterpark Society can raise the remaining funds it needs to build the splash components of the park by spring, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) 2016 recreation budget is poised for amendments to cover installation of a lift station. The committee asked water park representatives at the meeting if this will satisfy them to move ahead with the Centennial Park location, and society treasurer Von Rywaczuk said “yes.”

He explained that while initial feedback from the public preferred the South Cariboo Rec. Centre property for a water park, this was recently revealed to be cost prohibitive for the foreseeable future. CRD community services manager Darron Campbell reported that he estimates costs to build at the rec. centre at $295,000, compared to $111,000 at the park. This is partly due to the playground already at the park, which is a usual feature to complement any water park, he said, adding park also has brand new equipment installed last year. Campbell added the best site at the rec. centre for considering a water park currently accommodates the Outriders equestrian arena. Continued on A4

Following a poorly attended meeting to determine the fate of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #260100 Mile House on June 25, disgruntled Legion president Bob Wangensteen says the executive is locking the doors on July 31. “We had this real important meeting, and out of 375 members, 58 showed up. How do you build a place up on that kind of inclusion?” Wangensteen says it was very disappointing. “No, we’re not looking at a new facility. We’re out of money.” Unless the Legion BC/Yukon Command comes in and rescues us or something, Wangensteen says he’s not sure what will happen to the Legion. “We can’t pay our bills now as it is, so there’s no point running up another month’s worth of bills.” He says they have contacted Command about the problem, but there are communication problems. The last he heard was a representative would be coming up next week to look at the issue. “Someone was supposed to be here two weeks ago and now it’s next week. Like I say, I’m not going to sit around and wait for them. “I am going to put a lock on the door unless somebody comes up with a way to save it.” We want to hear what Command is going to do to save the local

Legion, Wangensteen says, adding it can make interest-free loans. “They will have their financial people come in first to see where the problem is and they could run it for a year to see if they can make

BOB WANGENSTEEN any changes. If they can’t, they’ll just shut her down.” Wangensteen says the Legion building is a “white elephant” and they need to get rid of it. “Myself, I would like to tear the building down and then have one that goes the length of the property and put about six or eight units of housing in the back of it for veterans and seniors, and then have a small Legion up front. “The housing would support the Legion, but you have to have money to do that.” R ig ht now, Wangensteen says the building is “just killing us.” Everything is so old; you can’t get parts for anything; and no one remembers how it was done, he explains. “Every time something breaks and it’s a major part, and it costs around $3,000 to $10,000 to fix it.” Continued on A12

‘We’ll never forget’

Dozens mourn loved ones lost in Flight 21 explosion on emotional 50th anniversary Gaven Crites Free Press

A ceremony held in 100 Mile House is evidence that, 50 years later, the victims in one of Canada’s bloodiest aviation mysteries haven’t been forgotten. Close to 80 people affected by the downing of Canadian Pacific Air Lines Flight 21 gathered on July 8 to mourn and mark the 50th anniversary of the plane crash, which claimed the lives of all 52 passengers and crew on board when it exploded in the sky and came down about 25 miles west of 100 Mile House. It was an emotional and cathartic scene at the stone cairn memorial on Airport Road near the tranquil water of the 100 Mile Marsh. The stone cairn memorializing the doomed flight was constructed in 2013. It displays the names of the victims. Since all the suspects were on board the Douglas DC-6 airliner, that list includes the name of the man investigators thought responsible for the unsolved massacre. Flight 21 was on route from Vancouver to Prince George when a bomb tore apart the tail section of the aircraft and sent it spiralling out of the sky and into the woods north of Gustafsen Lake, on July 8, 1965. Mourners travelled from far away to mark the anniversary. From places such as Ontario, New York, Scotland and Norway. Some had trekked out to the remote crash site the day before. From those who couldn’t be there, the hour-long ceremony heard letters and poems, more of the small pieces of individual stories that make up a larger history outlined by tragedy. The passengers had different reasons for being on that plane, and they were from different places. But they all shared in the same terrible fate, respective families connected since by grief and circumstance. In solemn conclusion, the names of the dead were read aloud, accompanied by a soft and mournful guitar and banjo melody, and the floating of yellow and white balloons, which eventually disappeared into the same

With family members of the victims of Flight 21 in attendance, local resident Stephen Pellizzari read aloud the names of the deceased at an emotional ceremony in 100 Mile House on July 8 marking the 50th anniversary of the deadly plane explosion.

blue sky where catastrophe struck five decades ago. Reading the names of the victims was local resident Stephen Pellizzari, a friend of Didi Henderson, whose father Dr. Wallace Emo died in the crash. (Henderson, a 100 Mile House resident, has for many years been instrumental in commemorating the tragedy.) For Pellizzari, it was a privilege and an honour to help mark the event. “You’ll notice on that list there are several times where it’s the same last name [that the victims share], so you think about the devastation of those families. I don’t have words to describe it. Honestly, it was very touching. That’s quite a number of people.” “The main thing is to think about the human toll,” he adds. “Think about how we can support and rebuild and go forward in life.” Added to the memorial site recently is a plaque next to the stone cairn in recognition of those involved in the recovery efforts, those who volunteered with “courage and compassion.” Dick Minato, a longtime local resident, sat quietly among the mourners in the sweltring afternoon heat. Minato was one of the many locals who took part in the

recovery effort the day after the crash. It’s not easy, but he recalls walking abreast with many others amongst the rubble, scanning the charred forest floor and marking debris from the aircraft for investigators. “You could see the smoke from town,” he remembers. “It was terrible.” On this day of remembrance, he’s amazed at the large number that turned out. “I’m glad they had this 50-year dedication.” It was 100 Mile House

resident Ruth Peterson who spearheaded the fundraising for the construction of the stone cairn in 2013. She visited the remote crash site with her husband a few years ago and was touched by what she saw and she wanted to create a more accessible and fitting place for people to reflect on their loved ones. Many family members of the victims approached her at the ceremony and expressed their thanks, and together they fought back tears. “To see their pain on a

visible level, it’s tough,” Peterson says following the emotional ceremony. “Some people have come from across the world to be here. It brings home how important [the ceremony] was.” She adds, “I think it’s important to keep the history of the event alive. Some people died saying ‘everyone forgot’. It speaks to that; it tells the community and the families of Flight 21 that we didn’t forget; we’ll never forget.”

REPORT SMOKE BC Wildfire Service personnel responded to a recent wildfire that was started by lightning about 10 days before it was detected. The fire was 25 kilometres north of Forest Grove and it covered 0.6 hectares. Air patrols are continuing throughout the Cariboo Fire Centre because lightning-caused “holdover” fires can smoulder in wet conditions and only become visible when nearby combustible material dries out and ignites. Call 1-800-663-5555 toll-free or dial *5555 on a cell phone to report smoke, flames or a campfire.

TRADES TRAINING The province and the Industry Training Authority will fund more than $75M to trades training providers until March 31, 2016. To meet industry needs and ensure demand-driven trades training, this system will see funding aligned to specific high priority trades.


Mount Polley Mine reopens

Thursday, July 16, 2015 100 Mile Free Press

Tailings pond use not part of conditional approvals

Carole Rooney Free Press

Local governments, MLAs, Mount Polley Mine employees and families and a host of others are cheering the planned restart of the mine. British Columbia’s Energy and Mines and Environment ministries have conditionally authorized the Mount Polley Mine Corporation to begin restricted operations. Now that ministry staff have amended the related Mines Act permits, the company estimates it will take about 30 days before it can begin limited production under the restricted operations, which will bring back jobs for up to 220 workers. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett is among the many MLAs saying this is good news for the communities that depend on the

Donna Barnett

mine as a key economic generator. “A lot of hard work has gone into getting to this stage with local leaders, First Nations, the company and the union all having a part in getting to where we are. “But this is only the first step – there’s a lot of work ahead and we must be vigilant to make sure the highest standards are being met.” This reopening shows it is possible to have a resource economy and respect the environment, both of which are vital to the region, Barnett adds. “I am very pleased. I know how hard the [various ministries’] staff worked on the

issue and in working with Imperial Metals, First Nations and the union. “This is a short-term authorization for four to five months while they do their long-term plan and there are many conditions [in the permit]. “The first is the environment. We are very cognizant of what hap-

ditional permit in the early fall to treat and discharge water, and it must also submit a long-term water treatment and discharge plan to government by June 30, 2016. The mine will not be authorized to continue to operate long-term if it fails to complete either of these two steps, he explains.

Now, Interior Health (IH) has lifted the remaining Do Not Use order and water use restrictions as of July 13 for residents in the defined “impact zone.” An IH release states this decision is based on the results of ongoing review of various water, sediment and fish toxicology sampling by the environment ministry that continue to show there are no known risks to human health. Water drawn from Polley Lake and Hazeltine Creek may now be consumed and used for recreational purposes. However, any residents using untreated surface water are advised to follow safe drinking water guidelines for filters and disinfection, or boil all water before drinking or using for washing produce. Affected area residents may contact IH at 1-888-702-7771 for more information.

Long-debated lift station steered to District budget

From A1

While the arena is in the long-term plans to be moved, he explained this is not likely to happen in the short term, and involves additional costs. However, Campbell pointed out several other benefits and drawbacks to both sites, and noted it was up to the committee to decide where it wanted to go. District of 100 Mile House operations director Phil Strain added he and Campbell have discussed these. “The park is definitely a preferred option – also just aesthetically – and we did look at some access issues that the water park society brought up; wheelchair accessibility, some

parking issues, things like that.” He said some of those issues could be looked at down the road in longterm budgeting, but already having the playground is a bigger factor. Rywaczuk added the society did go back to its contractor to see about reducing the project scope. “We spoke to him about reducing the size of the plan, just as far as it [could] financially cost less.” Noting the contractor needs to first know what the lift station/utilities will supply, such as water pressure, Rywaczuk said he will put him in touch with Strain. Strain agreed to that, but explained the original flow rate is what he used for lift station calculations, so it should be

sufficient for a smaller project. A spring 2016 target date was agreed upon by the committee and Rywaczuk, to allow time for the society to do more fundraising. Strain said the infrastructure construction and water park installation can be done simultaneously. “It is, at tops, a sixweek project to put that lift station in and get all the piping in, and it’s going to take at least that long to build it, so it’s not like we’d be holding them up.” Last fall, the previous SCJC members had declined paying (or pursuing grants) for a lift station in the park, but this did not deter the waterpark society in its tenacious lobbying to the District and CRD

for its project. However, the current SCJC voted unanimously to recommend the funding approval. CRD directors will

need to formalize that decision, but because they sit on the SCJC (with District council), its recommendations are typically a shoo-in.

Harper Conservatives have poor session

K a m l o o p s T h omp s on - C ar i b o o (KTC) NDP candidate Bill Sundhu says KTC MP Cathy McLeod has a lot of explaining to do in her riding now that the Parliamentary session is over. “Everyday I hear from voters who are disappointed by the Stephen Harper Conservatives and Cathy McLeod’s inaction during this last session” adds Sundhu. “While Canada continues to lose goodpaying manufacturing jobs, McLeod is completely silent. Instead, she and Harper put their efforts into passing the C-51 surveillance bill.” On the other hand, Sundhu says it was a very good session of Parliament for Tom

Mulcair and the NDP. “Firstly, I’m proud that New Democrats defended Canadians’ rights and freedoms and led the fight against the C-51 surveillance bill. But we also focused on what really matters – protecting the environment and making life more affordable for middle-class families. “We succeeded in getting consensus from all parties to ban plastic micro beads and protect our lakes and rivers. The NDP also won a victory for consumers by fighting against banks’ ‘pay-to-pay’ fees and made life more affordable for Canadians by abolishing the federal tax on feminine hygiene products.” Sundhu notes the NDP Colin Nivison: 250-791-6497 •

also successfully pressed the Conservatives to accept an NDP measure to cut taxes for small businesses. “This should have been welcome relief for small businesses. Instead, the Conservatives have failed to implement these cuts fast enough leaving small business waiting for help.” New Democrats worked tirelessly over the last session to make changes that help middle class families,” says Sundhu. “Canadians got an opportunity to see a party that is ready to govern and is best positioned to defeat Stephen Harper.” Sundhu and McLeod square off in the election set for Oct. 19.

No active fires in 100 Mile Fire District

Ken Alexander Free Press

While the Puntzi Lake wildfire continues burning west of Williams Lake, it’s pretty quiet in the 100 Mile Fire District, with a two-hectare wildfire extinguished and currently under patrol. Karen Powell, Cariboo Fire Centre assistant fire information officer, says the fire, which is on an active logging show northwest of 100 Mile House between Gustafson and Neilson lakes, was started by a lightning strike and patrolling has been

“taken over by industry” (logging contractor). To date, there have been 42 fire in the 100 Mile Fire District, with 32 of them lightning caused and the remainder human caused. The fires have burned 25 ha in total. Depending on the location, the danger rating is between moderate and extreme. “Because it’s so dry, it doesn’t take long after the rain to get back up to [extreme],” Powell explains. There are no smoke issues in the district.

Mother of two cadets joins the corps

Donna Milward sworn in as an Officer Cadet in council chambers Ken Alexander Free Press

Clinton resident Donna Milward was officially sworn in as a legal member of the Canadian Forces by local cadet corps Commanding Officer Capt. Dale Bachmier at an Attestation Ceremony in the District of 100 Mile House council chambers on June 25. Milward is now entitled to all of the rights and privileges of a Canadian Forces member, and she now falls under military law, as well as civilian law. The ceremony was necessary for Milward to become an Officer Cadet for Rocky

Mountain Rangers Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps 2887 based in 100 Mile House. Bachmier notes she will enter a training program in February 2016 when she will get her basic military training and other courses. “This will give her the basic knowledge and training to instruct in the cadet program. It will also give her the understanding of dress performance, how to drill, instruct and do paperwork – that kind of stuff.” Milward, who has had two daughters – Apryl and Alysha – go through the local cadet corps, says she is really excited about taking

this step towards cadet instruction. When her girls were going through the cadet program, the new Officer Cadet says she never thought about getting as deeply involved as she will be now. However, Capt. Kevin Seal asked her if she

would help in the office and start supporting the administrative portion of the corps. “I’ve worked with the corps for two years in the office and helping out.” Noting her youngest daughter, Alysha, was “leaving the nest,” Milward says she fell in

love with the program and wanted to contribute to it. Milward says she is very proud about taking this step, and Capt. Bachmier adds, “I’m really proud of her and I welcome her.”

Bus riders in 100 Mile House won’t have to pay fares on July 23 because the District of 100 Mile House and Cariboo Regional District (CRD) are celebrating 25 years of providing public transit in the community. The District of 100 Mile House, along with our CRD partners, is pleased to acknowledge our 25-year relationship with BC Transit in providing a valuable transportation alternative in the South Cariboo, says Mayor Mitch Campsall. “We look forward to continued service excellence from our partners at BC Transit over the next 25 years.” BC Transit, the CRD and the District are offering free fares to recognize this historic milestone. The date also coincides with community celebrations from July 18-26 to mark the District of 100 Mile House’s 50th year since its incorporation. For 25 years, public transit has been an integral part of the community,” says Manuel Achadinha, president and CEO of BC Transit. “We are pleased to celebrate these major milestones and our longstanding partnership with the CRD and the District of 100 Mile House.” Lindsay Nieson, local operator of the bus service, says it has been her “dream” job. “I love driving people where they need to go,

Golden party


The debate about the debates

“Pick your battles” is a wise adage for life, especially in the intensely competitive and adversarial arena that is politics. That is why we have a certain tolerance and even admiration for leaders who display this wisdom in their campaign strategies. But what if that campaign seems never-ending, and the battles avoided include major issues of the day and timeworn avenues of democratic accountability? I am referring, of course, to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s decision to not attend the traditional debates put on by the consortium of Canada’s major broadcasting networks. These debates have become known as “the” debates and one the key focal points of the election campaign; in 2011, the first English-language debate drew 10 million viewers. The only problem, from Mr. Harper’s perspective, is he can’t control them. And that is why he prefers to

00 Mile House is having a week-long (July 18-26) anniversary party and everyone is invited. Come and enjoy the Welcome Home 50th Anniversary of the District of 100 Mile House, which was incorporated on July 27, 1965. Some municipalities would celebrate such a milestone on the day it fell on and maybe have a few events for its residents. However, that’s not how 100 Mile House is going to celebrate its golden anniversary. We need a full week to celebrate everything that makes us the little community with a great big heart. 100 Mile House is an important municipality in the sense that it has been the longtime service centre for many nearby rural communities. It is also an inclusive community both inside and outside of its municipal boundaries. That is the reason we need a week to celebrate properly. This celebration was discussed at the Feb. 10 council meeting and it was determined a committee would be formed to make sure the celebration was something people would remember for a very long time. That committee – led by District councillors Dave Mingo and Bill Hadden – included a number of hardworking community volunteers, and they came up with a fantastic program of events that will have something for every member of your family. All of the events will be free to attend, with some providing an opportunity to donate to some great causes. For the most part, the events are being held outdoors and that’s perfect, as we’ll be able to celebrate under our big blue skies and, hopefully, clean air. This is an opportune time to enjoy some real quality time with our families and friends. It’s also a great opportunity to give our visitors a taste of why we are proud to call 100 Mile House and area communities home. Our friends from the Canim Lake Band will be sharing some cultural information and entertaining folks with some drumming and dancing in Centennial Park on July 22. A lot of events are being held in the park, which is truly a jewel for 100 Mile House, so be sure to take a stroll to the waterfalls while you are down there enjoying the various events. There will be a lot of musical entertainment – both local and those brought in especially for the occasion, including a Beatles review and the Louisiana Hayride on July 25. Kids Day is on July 23 with a lot to keep the little ones squealing with delight; folks can enjoy the Party in the Park the same day. A full schedule of events is on page B7 of this edition of the Free Press. Don’t miss this one if you can help it; take the memories home with you.

prorogations of parliament whenever a government is in danger of losing a vote of confidence, and omnibus budget implementation bills as the primary vehicle for unpopular measures that are neither budgetary nor about mere implementation. All of this has simply become routine. If Mr. Harper is rewarded with another majority and becomes the most successful Conservative PM of modern times, his behaviour will become the template for Conservatives, the unspoken political playbook for all politicians. It will become the “new normal” for all young and immigrant Canadians, and even for a large number of older Canadians who don’t bother to remember the honour system that once was. Is this the role model we want for politics in the future? Mark Crawford teaches politics at Athabasca University.

Provincial government policies need change To the editor: This is an open letter we have sent to Environment Minister Mary Polak regarding the issue of Conservation Officer Bryce Casavant being suspended without pay for saving the lives of two bear cubs in Port Hardy, British Columbia. We are ashamed at how wildlife issues are “managed” in this province. Too many deaths of wildlife animals occur at the hands of conservation officers who are acting in accordance with the policies set out

by our provincial government. This ongoing slaughter does not go unnoticed by us or many other residents of B.C. It is anthropocentric, inhumane and short-sighted to believe we have the right to exterminate other animals in the name of convenience and economy. Every year hundreds of healthy wildlife animals are killed in our province by this government. We have spoken at length with many conservation officers and have heard all the justifications and rationales.

Cathy McLeod taken to task by constituent

To the editor: This is an open letter to KamloopsThompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod regarding M444 I am a constituent in the riding you represent and I think it’s disgraceful that you voted against M-444, a motion for a National Action Plan to Address Violence Against Women. Violence against women is still a very real threat. Are you aware that in our country, one woman is killed every week because of domestic violence? How can you, as a woman and former health-care professional, be so out of touch with this issue and the constituents in the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding? Are you unaware of what happened to Angila Wilson in Clearwater last year? She lost her life and her babies lost a


We are tired of hearing how these animals are a threat to human safety. It is we humans who are the biggest threat. In fact, in Kamloops, two rescued bear cubs were taken to our Wildlife Park and were slaughtered upon their arrival due to government policy. Minutes after their extermination, the Northern Lights Wildlife Shelter called to say they had heard of the bear cub rescue and they were ready and willing to take the cubs. They were already dead.

stable, loving home with their mother. It’s hard to fathom everything else they have lost. They have been in foster care for over a year while Angila’s family fights the system to gain custody. Clearwater is a very small community. This tragedy touched everyone I know. Please explain to me in your own words why you don’t think that as a nation we don’t need a co-ordinated National Action Plan to Address Violence Against Women. With votes like this, and others you have been making recently, I find it increasingly difficult to believe you are in office to represent the constituents in your riding. I am angry, frustrated, and saddened by your lack of understanding and compassion. Charlene Lau Clearwater

Further, some of the wildlife shelters in B.C. receive government funding and are, therefore, obligated to tow your unethical line. We are two citizens of this province who are outraged at your policies and practices. You should be commending Officer Casavant for his forwardthinking, progressive, compassionate refusal to carry out your anthropocentric policies. We salute Officer Casavant for his courage to stand up for what

is right. He should be immediately reinstated to his job (with back pay), and promoted to be your consultant and advisor on the humane, sane and compassionate treatment and stewardship of our wildlife brethren. Sandi Mikuse Claudette Laffey Kamloops Editor’s Note: Conservation Officer Bryce Casavant remains under suspension but is back on the payroll.

Don’t let it happen to you

To the editor: When it comes to accidents, it’s common to think, “oh, it will never happen to us.” That is what we thought until our six-year-old son, Roan, a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program, lost his leg in a lawn mower accident. A few years ago, Roan was riding on a lawn mower with an adult when he fell off and severed his left leg at the knee. As he was airlifted by helicopter to the hospital, we wondered if we were going to see him again. We want to help spread Roan’s message across the country that kids should never be around a lawn mower. It doesn’t matter how good you are with machinery, it just takes a moment for a life-changing accident to happen.

Today, Roan is an active and energetic child thanks to help from The War Amps with financial assistance for artificial limbs, regional seminars and peer support. We just hope that his story will prevent even one child from

being injured. If you would like to learn more about how to encourage children to play safely, please visit Jolene and Neil Heck Stettler, Alberta

NDP win in Alberta problematic To the editor: British Columbia NDP Leader John Horgan says he is pleased the NDP won the provincial election in Alberta. Horgan now has a couple of problems on his hands because of this NDP win in Alberta. One is that the new NDP Premier Rachel Notley wants the Kinder Morgan pipeline to be built. Horgan, on the other hand, does not want this pipeline to be built.

The other problem is that if Notley receives an unsatisfactory report card after two years in government in Alberta, which will be 2017 and when B.C. voters will have a provincial election. A bad report card will have to be absorbed by Horgan and the B.C. NDP, once again keeping the B.C. NDP in opposition status. Joe Sawchuk Duncan

Another Those are absent in B.C., along with group led by Altagas remains on track apprenticeship guarantees for LNG. to ship LNG from its Douglas Channel “There was hard bargaining by the site before the end of the decade.


he British Columbia legislature is back in session this week, a rare summer sitting to approve a 25-year project agreement for the first large-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in northern B.C. Finance Minister Mike de Jong released the lengthy legal agreement prior to the debate, saying this step should remove any doubt that an international investment group led by Petronas of Malaysia intends to go ahead. With billions invested in upstream resources and buyers waiting at home, the Pacific Northwest LNG group includes Chinese state corporation Sinopec, Indian Oil Corp., Japan Petroleum Exploration Corp. and Petroleum Brunei. The most contentious issue is the government’s intention to protect the investors from “discriminatory” tax and regulations for the life of the project. The government insists these sorts of long-term cost certainty agreements are commonplace, and don’t affect provincial and federal taxes or environmental regulations unless they single out LNG operations.

It’s important to remember that without LNG exports, B.C.’s natural gas industry will shrink rapidly after 50 years of increasingly significant revenues from sales to the United States. Leaving aside all the political positioning around the province’s largest private investment to date, if this doesn’t go ahead we will all feel the effects. de Jong had a blunt response when asked what the province gets in return for all its guarantees of low tax environment: “Their money.” At peak construction, Pacific Northwest LNG will need as many as 4,500 workers, with 500 or more operations jobs depending on how far it expands. The finance ministry forecasts that once Pacific Northwest LNG is up and running, it represents $9 billion in revenues to the province over 10 years, including gas royalties and taxes. That’s more than taxpayers can expect from the entire forest industry. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @ tomfletcherbc E-mail:

The flag-raising came after a request was made to council in June, asking that the city fly the rainbow pride flag from July 13 to 20 to coincide with a pride celebration that will run July 17 to 19 at Trethewey House. The events are organized by Out in the Valley, a society that organizes social events for the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) community, and the Fraser Valley Youth Society (FVYS), a non-profit charitable organization that provides services for LGBTQ+ and allied youth. When council made the decision, Mayor Henry Braun noted that the city had no policy on what flags can fly at city hall. The city will consider a policy on flag raising at today's council meeting.

Shooting outside Naramata Pentiction - A man is being treated for gunshot wounds after a shooting that took place near the border of Naramata and Penticton. One man is in custody after Penticton RCMP responded to reports of shots fired around 10:30 p.m. Monday at a residence on Lindsay Road. Police said both males were known to each other and the shooting was an isolated incident not related to any gang activity. Nearby neighbour Phil Quinn said he hasn’t seen anything like this in his 20 years living in the area. He said that the two men who rented the top floor of the residence police were seen investigating Tuesday seemed to be good friends. “They come by quite often. They were always quite happy. They stick together a lot and they seem to be really good friends,” Quinn said. “It’s quite surprising. They seem really happy all the time so I’m quite shocked actually that something happened.” He saw the two men earlier that night on a beach nearby on the property. The two did not seem to be in a dispute according to Quinn. Quinn said the two have lived at the residence for the past couple years, and he believes they worked in the oilfield in Alberta.

the people who sunk their time and effort into building this place up to have it just go by the wayside. “It’s just a slap in the face.”

Mascots invited to anniversary games

The Welcome Home 50th Anniversary Committee is inviting organizations and their mascots to compete in the inaugural 100 Mile House Mascot Games. Volunteer organizer Lucille Armstrong encourages mascots to attend all of the District of 100 Mile House anniversary events throughout the week, but particularly the Mascot Games happening on July 25.

The games will consist of several brief events during the celebration in the park that runs 10 a.m.-9 p.m., with times based on participants’ availability that day, she explains. Armstrong says a change room will be available with security provided for the mascots. “If your mascot would like to attend, please contact me so we can start promoting this event as soon as possible.”

They are thought to bring luck to their group, so if you don’t have a mascot yet, why not get one for the games and find out? To enter a mascot, e-mail the mascot name and availability for games day along with your contact name, phone number and preferred e-mail address to, or call her at 604-815-8628.

The cost is expected to be at least $1.41/$100,000 assessed value. The CRD is holding an information meeting at the centre from 5 to 7 p.m. on July 23.

The Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School band, pictured, and the 100 Mile House Community Band put on a great performance and raised funds for the South Cariboo Health Foundation on June 9.

Bands play great show

A joint concert between the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) band and the 100 Mile House Community Band saw a number of great performances and raised funds for local health care on June 9. The audience at the local high school was treated to band, choir and individual student performances, including a wonderful rendition of the Jason Mraz hit, Lucky, performed by Mikayla Crandell and Rick Donnett.

The concert raised close to $200 for the South Cariboo Health Foundation. At the end of the concert, PSO music teacher Vanessa Toews “passed the baton” to 100 Mile Elementary School music teacher Jasmine Kreschuk, who will be teaching at PSO next year. Mark Thiessen, School District 27 superintendent, highlighted the importance of music programs in the school district and the collaboration of all its music teachers.

Rita Dumontier and Tom Timleck married in Forest Grove FOREST GROVE Doris E Rufli 250-397-7775

Family and friends of Rita Dumontier and Tom Timleck gathered in the backyard of JoAnn and Gordon Armstrong’s home to witness their long-awaited nuptials on July 4 at 1 p.m. It was a beautiful ceremony in bright sunshine and many a tear was shed, while the happy couple exchanged their vows and signed the registry. The reception took place at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 261-Forest Grove, after the weekly meat draw.

Bottles of wine were on offer, as well as delicious snacks and, of course, a piece of wedding cake. Then guests and locals danced the night away with Max King as DJ.

School awards On the last day of school (June 25), parents arrived in droves to celebrate their children’s achievements throughout the year and to say “farewell” to those moving on to Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School. Principal Shawn Nelson thanked students and teachers for all their hard work, as well as the local Community and Parents Advisory Council (CPAC) for its achievements at adding 1,200-plus books to the library and organizing the spring and fall bottle drives in.

CPAC acknowledged Heather Van Osch who started collecting bottles and cans several years ago at her home. She has accumulated $26,000 to date, allowing the school to contribute toward the new playground and purchasing a climbing wall among other things. Legion news Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett joined this year’s Veteran and Volunteer Dinner at the Forest Grove Legion on June 29. She declared this community to be a very special place, and together with Legion president Jim Tindale, thanked the veterans for attending and the volunteers for their time and effort they provided throughout the year.

New route for rod run

There will be plenty of flashy sights and mighty sounds to take in when close to 200 classic cars and bikes rumble into 100 Mile House this weekend. The Hot July Nights Car & Bike Show, a premier automotive event in the area, is gearing up for another big event, July 17-19. The weekend starts with a rod run leaving the A&W Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. on July 17. The rod run, hosted by the 100 Mile Cruzers Car Club, will see participants cruise a new route this year. Instead of heading north to 108 Mile Ranch, the long procession of powerful and stylish rides is heading south through Lone Butte and back to town via Horse Lake Road. The rod run will start down Highway 97 South and turn left on Highway 24 toward Lone Butte. The cars then make a left past Lone Butte on the Horse Lake cutoff over the

train tracks, then left on McMillan Road to Horse Lake Road, followed by a quick sweep of the Ranchettes down Lakeshore Drive and Imperial Road, before turning back toward 100 Mile House. The last leg of the run is down Birch Avenue and First Street, arriving back at the A&W Restaurant, a popular spot for Cruzers Car Club regular events. Jen Daniel, 100 Mile House A&W Restaurant manager, has done wonders for the club, says Cruzers president Jim Williscroft. “We’re picking up [members] fast and furious right now.” On July 18, the fun begins at 2 p.m. with registration for a poker run. Participants will leave the South Cariboo Rec. Centre at 3 p.m. and enjoy a scenic route toward the Green Lake area. Drivers will arrive at the 100 Mile House Community Hall at about 5:30 p.m.

100 Mile hosts impressive BC tourney 'It was a lot of work, but in the end it's worth it to show off our community'

Gaven Crites Free Press

A riveting penalty shootout decided the last game at the Soccer Park on Sunday, the exciting culmination of a large soccer tournament that saw two dozen teams and hundreds of young players from all over British Columbia compete for provincial titles in 100 Mile House, July 9-12. The 100 Mile House & District Soccer Association hosted the Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial B Cup for the U13, U14 and U15 divisions. Langley United Palani (U15), Central City Breakers FC (U14) of Surrey, and Kelowna United

FC (U13) won their respective divisions. A local U14 boys team played host. Lianne Heales, president of the local soccer association, says hosting the event was worth the close to year-long organizing effort. “It came down to a few really hardworking volunteers and we had a lot of help from parent volunteers and community members who don't have kids in soccer. “It was a lot of work, but in the end it's worth it to show off our community. That was a big part of why we wanted to put the effort in.” All in all, it was a great weekend, Heales adds. “We received a lot of positive comments from

people coming from out of town. BC Soccer was totally impressed with our organization, our volunteers and our field, as were a number of the other communities. Our boys did a great job representing 100 Mile. They played hard; they were competitive in many of their games. I'm really proud of our boys and proud of our organization for being able to pull this off.” The 100 Mile House U14 team included Wylon Hall, Cameron Ardiel, Dylan Carr, Pete Peterson, Adam Sullivan, Tyson Fitzgerald, Jake Cuttler, Hayden Prodnuk, Noah Dykstra, Josh Hutchins, Nigel Swann, Lee Machete, Dylan Newhook, Ryan Grant and Cory Mapson.

We look forward to 2016 with anticipation!"

Rower makes finals

A two-kilometre sprint race at Midsummer Madness in Burnaby Lake was a first for local rower Donri Heise, who was pleased with making the finals and racing to fourth place on June 27. “I'm thankful for coaching from Jack Jenkins (South Cariboo), Marlene Royle (Whistler) and Laurel Glanfield (Fort Langley), who helped me with technique, race plans and endurance,” says the South Cariboo Rowing Club (SCRC) member, adding a big thanks to group president Murray Helmer “for supporting me through many hours of training and keeping me organized and

focused at the regatta." Heise finished only 12 seconds behind third place with a time of 11 minutes 8.54 seconds. The top three rowers represented Simon Fraser University with times of 10 minutes 3.49 seconds, 10 minutes 6.37 seconds and 10 minutes 56.26 seconds. “Times were a little slower than normal, as there was an extreme headwind making us all work extra hard,” Heise notes. Next up for SCRC members is the Cascadia Masters Regatta at Burnaby Lake on July 18-19. The event will see 1000-metre sprints against experienced

masters in similar age groups. Jenkins and Heise will be racing singles, as well as mixed doubles. Heise will also

be racing a women's double and a women's quad with some teammates from Fort Langley.

Wranglers MVP, top scoring d-man move on

Gaven Crites Free Press

In a way, considering their tangible on ice contributions and appeal to some Junior A clubs, the 100 Mile House Wranglers were lucky to have Kristian Stead and Jayden Syrota for the entirety of last season. Stead, 18, was an essential workhorse between the pipes and named the Wranglers' 2014-15 season MVP. The Merritt net minder was second among Kootenay International Junior Hockey League goalies in games played (40), third in total shots (1,385), 12th in save percentage (0.916) and fifth in wins (21).

Goalie Kristian Stead, left, was the Wranglers 2014-15 season MVP and is making the jump to Junior A with the Nipawin Hawks in Saskatchewan. Defenceman Jayden Syrota, the Wranglers second leading scorer last season, is set to play with the Weyburn Red Wings of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

Syrota, 18, a crafty player from Vanderhoof, was the team's second leading scorer and winner of the club's Outstanding Defenceman Award, notching 38 points in 47 games in his second sea-

son on the Wranglers' blue line. Both are off to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League next season, making the leap from Junior B to Junior A, Syrota to the Weyburn Red Wings and Stead to

the Nipawin Hawks. “I'm really happy for both those guys,” says Wranglers coach Dale Hladun. “Those are great fits and I think they'll have a lot of success there.” “Now,” the coach

108 Ladies pair up

A July 7 round at the 108 Golf Resort saw 108 Ladies Club members in teams of two playing "imitate the Pud" on the front nine, in preparation for the 31st Annual Pud Griffin Ladies Tournament, July 11-12. The format is ladies play in teams of two, and use the best gross and net score of each golfer per hole for the total team score. The ladies had a great turnout with 34 members and enjoyed beautiful weather. First low gross (count back): Clara Koehn and Janet Roux. Second low gross (count back): Debbie Case and Norma Haggard. Third low gross (count back): Annie McKave and Darlene DeAngelis. Fourth low gross (count back): Lorraine Scott and Angela Batalha. First low net (retrogression): Maureen Menzies and Sharon Thompson. Second low net (retrogression): Carol Lidstone and Wendy Foster. Third low net (retrogression): Pauline Weigelt and Gloria Corno. Fourth low net:

Laverne Martin and Millie Halcro. Case, Haggard and Joanne Garrow made birdies. McKave, Martin and Garrow hit the long drives in their respective flights. Carol Ohlund, Batalha and Haggard shot closest to the pin. Stormy weather put a damper on the later in the day rounds played by some of the 26 mem-

bers of the 108 Ladies Club on June 30. But the morning golfers dodged the rain and lighting and enjoyed pleasant weather and 18 holes at the 108 Golf Resort. Ohlund scored birdies on No. 1 and No. 4. She also fired lowest net in the first flight, followed by Char Wahnschaff. Ohlund also had the least putts, with Wahnschaff, Maureen Pinkney and

Lidstone tying for second least. Shirley Boyson scored lowest net in the second flight, followed by Sharlene Anderson. Shannon Knapp had the least putts followed by Ann Pinkney. M. Pinkney shot closest to the pin on No. 7. Heather Matsuda, Donna Brennan and Garrow hit the longest drives in their respective flights on No. 2.

adds, “I have to find guys to replace those two.” Indeed, seeing the pair move on is bittersweet in a sense. On the one hand, the Wranglers lose two rather skilled, big time contributors. On the other hand, seeing Wranglers alumni move on to different levels of hockey – including former captain Devan Suidy, who recently won a partial scholarship to play and study at Portage College in Alberta – is a good

recruiting tool for the local hockey organization, ideally to help draw more talented players here with future aspirations beyond Junior B. At this level, it's the nature of the game. “It will all start at training camp [Aug 27-28],” Hladun says. “We'll get the next Syrota and Stead out there.” Of the pre-season camp, still more than a month away, Hladun makes a few predictions:

it will be a small one, maybe 30 or so skaters, and a competitive one. Even for some of the dozen or so players eligible to return. “We'll have enough [skaters at the camp] to look at affiliated players, to have some guys challenge for spots, and enough to have intersquad games. I have a lot of returning vets. I don't sense I'll keep them all. It's going to be a pretty competitive camp.”

Drop by District’s booth during Celebration

In May 2015, the District of 100 Mile House launched a process to update the Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Bylaw. The OCP reflects the District’s vision for the future of 100 Mile House and the policies to make it become a reality. The zoning bylaw regulates land use including permitted uses, home occupations, building setbacks, maximum building heights,

parking standards and minimum parcel areas. The two bylaws are being revised to align Council and community values, aspirations and perspectives. Project information and activities will be integrated into the District’s 50th Anniversary Celebration events taking place in Centennial Park throughout the week of July 19-26. Stop by the District’s booth to learn more and help contribute to the OCP

update. The Project Planning Team wants to hear your views, concerns and feedback throughout the project. Regular project updates will be provided on the District’s website and additional public engagement opportunities will occur this fall. The OCP update & Zoning Bylaw rewrite are expected to be completed by the end of 2015. For more information,

The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC is expanding the summer Learn to Fish program in northern British Columbia. Six new events have increased the number of Learn to Fish sessions to 17 at 10 locations in regional parks and urban lakes for local and visiting youth and their families. Learn to Fish will be held at Big Bar Lake Provincial Park on July 23 and Aug. 18, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. Children and families

should meet at the park’s Day Use Area. New this year, Learn to Fish will also be held at Green Lake Provincial Park on July 25 and Aug. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon both days. Children and families should meet at the Sunset View Campground Day Use Area. “There is an increasing interest in freshwater fishing across the region, and the best way to







facilitate that interest is to make fishing more readily accessible and available,” says Tanya Laird, Provincial Outreach Co-ordinator. By bringing the programs closer, and providing equipment, there are fewer barriers for people to give the sport a try. Access to programs in their own community will make it easier for youth and their families to experience the

sport together.” Learn to Fish events are hosted on a drop-in basis for youngsters aged five to 15, and their families. Children under 16 don’t need a freshwater fishing licence. Everyone learns about fish identification and biology; habitat and conservation; proper fish handling; and ethics, safety and fishing regulations. Instructors explain fishing tackle (rods, reels, lines, and lures) and knot-tying. Participants also learn

hands-on how to successfully cast and retrieve. All the fishing equipment is provided, and the two-hour programs run rain or shine. Program cost is free, thanks to generous support from the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, Columbia Basin Trust, Rapala, Ram Trucks Canada, and Teck, but donations are gratefully accepted.

Ask an Expert:

What are some energy efficient ways to cool my home in the hot summer months?

For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energyefficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances. The most common type of heat pump is the air-source heat pump, which transfers heat between your house and the outside air. If you heat with electricity, a heat pump can trim the amount of electricity you use for heating by as much as 30% to 40%. Highefficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in summer months. However, the efficiency of most air-source heat pumps as a heat source drops dramatically at low temperatures, generally making them unsuitable for cold climates, although there are systems that can overcome the problem. For homes without ducts, air-source heat pumps are also available in a ductless version called a mini-split heat pump. In addition, a special type of air-source heat pump called a “reverse cycle chiller” generates hot and cold water rather than air, allowing it to be used with radiant floor heating systems in heating mode. Geothermal (ground-source or water-source) heat pumps achieve higher efficiencies by transferring heat between your house and the ground or a nearby water source. Although they cost more to install, geothermal heat pumps have low operating costs because they take advantage of relatively constant ground or water temperatures. Whether a geothermal heat pump is appropriate for you will depend on the size of your lot, the subsoil, and the landscape. Ground-source or water-source heat pumps can be used in more extreme climates than air-source heat pumps, and customer satisfaction with the systems is very high.

Alan was born in North Vancouver to Charles F. and Eleanor Bunker. He attended elementary school in North Vancouver and after the family moved to the Dunbar area of Vancouver, he completed his high school at Lord Byng Secondary. After one year of university and not really knowing what he wanted to do, he worked in the logging industry on the coast. In 1951 he enrolled in Normal school and began his teaching career in Horsefly in 1952. That was followed by one year at 150 Mile House, a year in Lac la Hache and four years at Green Lake School, where he also drove school bus. Having had an interest in the trades, he enrolled in summer school and received certification to teach Industrial Education. He taught at David Stoddart Secondary School in Clinton from 1959 until 1978, when he moved to Smithers. He taught at Houston for three years and ended his career after five years teaching at Chandler Park. He retired in 1986 and enjoyed the following years gardening, farming and boating. Alan and Phyllis (Reed) were married in 1957 and raised four children: Anita (Les) Trenerry, Teresa (Ken) Oulton, Sandra (Doug) Birkenthal, and Arnold (Arny) Bunker. He also leaves seven grandchildren: Lea (Adam) Bree, Kirstin and Amy Oulton, Kieran and Blake Trenerry and Kurt and Steven Bunker; and three great-grandchildren: Grayson and Peyton Bree and Cash Trenerry. Alan is also survived by his sisters; Marilyn Walsh of 83 Mile House, and Jacqueline Bunker of Burnaby. Alan was always interested in sports and was particularly fond of soccer, which he considered the best game. During his teaching career he also coached many high school and community sports teams. The family would like to thank Dr. Haskins and the Smithers Home Care nurses - Sandra, Maureen and Nelsie, for their assistance and support during Alanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last days. There will be a Celebration of Life on August 15 at the Evelyn Community Hall. No flowers by request; however donations in Alanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kid Sport BCâ&#x20AC;? (, Athletics for Kids (www.a4k,ca), or a charity of your choice would be appreciated. Phyllis, Anita, Teresa, Sandra and Arny
