Doctor search remains unsuccessful By Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

The allure of the Lower Mainland is one factor keeping doctors from choosing to locate in rural communities like Sicamous – and Kelowna. District of Sicamous council recently received an update on the ongoing doctor hunt by Phil Martin of Global Medics Ltd. In March of this year, the district contracted Global Medics to seek out two doctors for the Sicamous Medical Clinic. Council budgeted $30,000 to cover Global Medics’ recruitment costs. While Global Medics is working with doctors seeking positions in B.C., Martin says most, if not all, are choosing to locate in Vancouver or on Vancouver Island. This, he explains, has to do, in part, with their training, as they don’t feel they have the medical training (procedural skills) required for a family medicine residency in smaller communities. Doctors are also concerned rural communities won’t have the job opportunities for spouses, or it’s a family decision where the partner and/or kids are not wanting “to be too rural.” Martin notes their definition of rural can include urban centres such as Kelowna. “I think it’s just a different understanding, but please know we’re doing all we can to educate them on the fantastic living, high quality of life and beautiful surroundings when you live and work in some of the smaller communities in Canada,” writes Martin. Under its recruitment contract with the district, Global Medics will be paid $15,000 plus taxes per doctor, half of which is paid when one is found and the other, if and when they start work. If the doctor decides not to locate in Sicamous, the district’s money is reimbursed. To improve its odds of attracting doctors, the district has also agreed to make available the following “physician recruitment lifestyle incentives: year 1: $500/month; year 2: $300/month; year 3: $200/month. For transportation: year 1: $250/ month; year 2: $150/month: year 3: $100/month. Regarding Global Medics’ costs, Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area E director Rhona Martin has suggested funding could be provided through the CSRD Economic Opportunity Fund. “The CSRD and Rhona would be more than happy to support us on that…,” commented Mayor Terry Rysz. “Malakwa is just as concerned about us having doctors as Sicamous.”

Council votes to purchase land

Main Street: District suggests property could be turned into park. By Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Sicamous taxpayers are in the process of acquiring some prime Main Street real estate. At its Wednesday meeting, district council voted in support of borrowing $505,000 through the Municipal Finance Authority for the purchase of property located at 200 Main St. Couns. Colleen Anderson and Janna Simons were opposed to the borrowing. The empty, 1.59 acre parcel had been listed on the market at $642,000. While a use for the property has not

yet been determined, Mayor Terry Rysz (official community plan).” said council had considered making it The borrowing agreement supported park space. by council requires the dis“It just becomes an astrict to repay the borrowed set for the community,” said sum over five years at an inRysz. terest rate of 1.24 per cent. “Council felt it was an A staff memo notes this opportune time to pick up will be repaid through the that piece of land for the betdistrict’s general taxation ter interest of the commurevenue, but will not result Terry Rysz nity.

District suggests sewer financing options By Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Sicamous property owners seeking an extension to the November sewer connection deadline may receive some good and bad news. At its Wednesday meeting, council received two more letters from property owners asking for deadline extensions and both were denied. Community planner Mike Marrs confirmed those who do not connect will still have to pay the annual flat rate paid by those without a water meter of $467. “I think the only thing we can do, legally, is charge them that $467 if they don’t connect,” commented Coun. Jeff Mallmes. “I think they send a letter in, we can send a letter back, which we can send to all of them, and say the deadline is Nov. 30, and you’re supposed to hook up by then, and if you don’t

you’re going to pay this anyway. It’s not like they’re getting off scot free.” After further discussion, council did agree to have staff draft letters, though not just to say requests had been denied. They will also provide information on how property owners can commit to connecting without immediately facing the full financial burden. Coun. Malcolm Makayev noted hookup fees can be spread over a three-year period. In addition, he said people can meet the Nov. 30 deadline by submitting an application, and still have six months after to complete the connection. Community planner Mike Marrs confirmed this, explaining it was an option staff was going to present to council. “That permit is good for six months in the interim, so it would give an opportunity to at least make a commit-

ment to doing it,” said Marrs. This approach, Marrs explained, would also help local plumbers and subcontractors, who are currently overbooked working for those trying to meet the November connection deadline. “I’m certain by the time we get into the spring, there will be some areas in the community where high water will be hitting again and we can deal with that… at staff level and actually grant them a three-month extension or something for the summer,” said Marrs. “At least we’d have the financial commitment and the necessary permit.” Prior to discussing the letters, council received a presentation by Interior Health health officer Clare Audet, who discussed landuse planning, drinking water and onsite sewage. In her presentation, Audet explained how Sicamous is on an

unconfined aquifer, and stressed how potential risks/contaminants to that water source can be better mitigated with a community sewer system.

Coun. Gord Bushell District of Sicamous

“It is an education process, and some of the residents of Sicamous that I spoke to, they just neglected to even think about it this summer and now it has come the time, they say why do we have to hook up,” commented Coun. Gord Bushell. “Most of them don’t understand – the environment. That’s the reason we got the grant funding, it’s that we’re on a flood plain and we don’t want to saturate

Council votes against campground concept By Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

A requested downzoning to permit a campground near Sicamous’ town centre has been denied by district council. A memo by District of Sicamous community planner Mike Marrs states applicants Howard Yakimishyn and Christopher Blower were seeking to rezone property at 222 Temple Street from R5 Medium Density to C3 Resort Commercial. The purpose of the zoning amendment was to construct a 26 to 30 unit fully serviced campsite facility, with sites that could accommodate a variety of RV and tent structures. A small playground, restroom and shower facilities are included in the development proposal. The memo states staff is opposed to the application to “down zone” the property as it conflicts with the district’s official community plan (OCP), which

“encourages a variety of higher density residential development in close proximity to the Town Centre, as opposed to a “short-term accommodation, highturnover-type development. Marrs notes how the Temple Street property has been rezoned to accommodate multi-family development, a 50unit structure for which the district would have collected $316,650 in development cost charges. With the 30site campground, he says, the district would collect $69,870. Marrs also says approval of the campground could result in a reduced tax base – $21,300 in general taxation, as opposed to the $93,700 that would have been collected from a 50 unit townhouse complex. “In addition to increased taxation revenue, there would be an estimated $46,100 extra collected in utilities per year if the downzoning did not

occur and a 50-unit townhouse were constructed,” writes Marrs. Coun. Macolm Makayev said he agreed with staff recommendation to oppose the project, saying he thought the district

our groundwater with sewage.” Bushell asked if further advertising could be done. Marrs, however, said plenty has been done already to inform people of the hookup date and the reasons for it. “We’ve had a couple of our planning forums in which we talked about sewer connections and deadlines, and we’ve had three extensions and they’ve been all advertised. So, you know, pardon me, but there’s no excuse for not knowing that this is coming upon us, and I believe it’s critical to our environment getting it done as soon as possible,” said Marrs.

Man escapes flames

Sicamous RCMP say a man driving on Trans-Canada Highway stuck to his instinct when he smelled smoke and pulled over. The man luckily managed to get out of his vehicle before it ignited in flames. Const. Patrick Pyper says the man pulled over about half a kilometre east of Bernie Road on the Trans-Canada Highway between Salmon Arm and Sicamous around 8 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 14. It hasn’t been determined what caused the car to flare up, but police suspect it was something to do with a faulty ignition, or another electrical problem in the vehicle.

Cancer survivor chosen to play Terry Fox

Sicamous & District Seniors Centre Society

TV: Jared Huumonen featured in clip to mark the run’s 35th year. By Tracy Hughes Eagle Valley News

When he was 16, Jared Huumonen lost his leg to the same kind of cancer that claimed the life of Canadian hero Terry Fox. Little did he know that years later, Huumonen would be asked to portray Fox during a History Moment television clip. Jared, whose parents, Shirley and Tapio live in Sicamous, will be featured in the oneminute clip which will be running on various networks in tribute to the 35th anniversary of Terry’s remarkable journey across Canada. The clips began airing Tuesday, Sept 15 on Bell Media channels, including CTV, Much, MTV, TSN and Comedy. Then other broadcasters will start airing it, including CBC, the History channel and Shaw networks in Victoria and Vancouver. Huumonen was recruited to play Terry Fox through the company which makes his prosthetic leg. The production company, Historica Canada, was looking for someone who might be suitable and although, at 37, Huumonen is older than Terry Fox, his height and build is similar. With the addition of a curly wig, some short-shorts and a specially made prosthetic leg designed to look like the one Terry Fox wore, Huumonen was nearly ready to film. First, Hummonen needed some hair bleach for his arms and

legs, as his dark hair was not compatible with Terry’s. Then, he needed special lessons in learning to run like Terry Fox. “This was a challenge, because prosthetics have come so far since then. Jared now has what we call a super-bionic leg that he would use for running, but back then things were much more cumbersome, resulting in that distinctive gait Terry had. And they

Canada needs to accept refugees Canada has an admirable record when it comes to admitting refugees in times of crisis. In 1956 and 1957, when Soviet tanks rolled into Hungary to crush a popular uprising, thousands fled the country. More than 30,000 of them had been admitted to Canada by the end of 1957. In 1975 and ’76, and again in 1979 and ’80, refugees from Vietnam flooded out of that country; we took in more than 5,600 from the first wave and an astonishing 50,000 from the second. Now the federal government is sticking to its guns: refugees from war-torn Syria and Iraq will be limited to 20,000 in total, spread out over several years. The NDP and Liberals have both advanced plans that are considerably more expansive. We have seen Canada absorb more people in years past, when we had a smaller population to welcome them. Despite economic setbacks, Canada today is wealthier than it was in 1956 or 1979. Our national mosaic includes communities from virtually every nation around the world – there are already Iraqi-Canadians and Syrian-Canadians here who can help the newcomers, to say nothing of the many towns, churches, families, and individuals who will willingly give a hand if the numbers are increased. The Syrian crisis has been going on for years now. The recent photo of drowned toddler Alan Kurdi has drawn more attention to the issue than hundreds of stories about the plight of the refugees. Canada has always been involved in the wider world. We can argue about what forms our intervention should take, but accepting more refugees should be an immediate priority, regardless of political posturing. Langley Advance



Protest stunts distract from real effort By Tom Fletcher News Columnist

“I am tired of managing poverty.” The words of Lake Babine Nation Chief Wilf Adam were quoted by both Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad and Premier Christy Clark at their second annual meeting with aboriginal leaders around the province. In her closing remarks, Clark repeated her aim to continue economic development and resource revenue sharing that have dominated the government’s approach in recent years. “Let’s eliminate poverty in First Nations communities,” she said, adding “the only way we can fight poverty is to grow the economy.” Not surprisingly, Clark’s chosen example was the potential of liquefied natural gas development for the Haisla Nation near Kitimat. That and similar proposals require new gas pipe-

lines. And as is customary in B.C., what people most often hear about are threats and wild claims regarding protests such as the Unist’ot’en camp near Smithers, set up to block a gas pipeline. There was a round of this in late August, after Grand Chief Stewart Phillip of the militant Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs claimed hundreds of RCMP officers were about to descend on the camp. This echoed previous false claims made by self-styled anarchists such as Victoria’s Zoe Blunt, who has been organizing outside support for the camp for the last couple of years. Media jumped at the prospect of another Gustafson Lake-style confrontation. This prompted an unusual statement from Cpl. Janelle Shoihet of the North District RCMP. “To clarify, the B.C. RCMP has no intention of ‘taking down the camp’ set up by the Unist’ot’en,” she said, emphasizing that po-

lice are not taking sides or acting as security for pipeline exploration crews being harassed by protesters, who have token support from a couple of dissident members of a Wet’suwet’en clan. Four elected chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en issued their own statement, to correct media coverage that represents the Unist’ot’en as speaking for their communities. “Our Nations support responsible resource development as a way to bring First Nations out of poverty and bring opportunities for our young people,” said Burns Lake Band Chief Dan George. Haisla Nation Chief Councillor Ellis Ross has no time for crude oil projects, but he has been working towards gas-related development as long as anyone. Ross spoke out in support of the elected Wet’suwet’en chiefs in their efforts to resolve the dispute with Unist’ot’en members. “Opposition is the easiest

job in the world,” he said. “What is difficult is finding an answer when a First Nations mother has concerns about her child’s future. “Politicians are quick to shout out sound bites and get into camera shots, but where are the cameras when another First Nations member takes their own life or when they pass away from highway/alcohol related deaths?” Ross noted that recent court decisions have put B.C. aboriginal leaders in the best position they have ever had, with governments and development project proponents coming to them “with inclusion in mind” after decades of resource development that has passed them by. You wouldn’t know it most days, but First Nations along both the Coastal GasLink and Pacific Trails gas pipelines have agreed to them. More aboriginal leaders are getting tired of managing poverty, and misguided protesters.

Eagles stand up to Grizzlies, fall to ‘Cats By Evan Buhler

Eagle Valley News

In a wild and rough start to the season the Sicamous Eagles prevailed 3-2 over their rivals from Revelstoke on Friday night. “It was a great game for both teams,” said Wayne March, Eagles general manager. “Both teams are young, and it was a battle right to the end.” The Eagles got off to a dream start just 34 seconds into the 2015/16 season, when Nathan Plessis finished off a brilliant passing display by William Mizuik and Bradley Whitehead. However, the Grizzlies showed their teeth only a minute later, when Kaden Black scored an equalizer, with the assist coming

from Nii Noi Tetteh. The quick pace of the game continued as both teams traded scoring chances. At the eight minute mark emotions of the season opener boiled over as the Eagles’ Darien Blight and the Grizzlies’ Kyle Baron squared off in a fight, which resulted in both players being tossed from the game. After the fight, penalties were commonplace as each team racked up 14 penalties between them. “I think opening night nerves got the better of some of the players,” said March. A powerplay goal by Danny O’Donnell gave the Eagles a single goal lead after one period of play, and mid way

Landon Fuller, both of whom have WHL pedigrees, anchoring the blue line, March is already confident his team will reach the playoffs. The Eagles host the Princeton at the Rec Centre on Saturday at 7 p.m.

ting a goal and accomplishing it.” While she was busy with her volunteer duties, Derkaz found it important to put all of that on hold and enter the political fray. “Over the last five years I watched the direction Canada was taking under the Harper government and I realized that if you don’t

like what you see, you need to get active,” she said. “I was concerned about our democracy and economy. There’s a problem with the wealthy getting wealthier and leaving the rest behind.” - This is the first in a series of four profiles which will feature the election candidates in

the North OkanaganShuswap riding.

Sudoko Crossword

An almost devastating experience ultimately solidified Cindy Derkaz’s direction in life. It was 1967 and flames engulfed the historic Montebello Hotel in Salmon Arm. The inferno spread to other adjacent businesses, including Derkaz Shoes, owned by the then 11-year-old’s parents, Walter and Betty. “The store was substantially burned,” said Derkaz, the North Okanagan-Shuswap Liberal candidate. “The bank manager called the next morning and said the line of credit was cancelled because there was no business and then there was a call that there would be no insurance.” Her parents were left wondering how they would put food on the table, but the tide turned when Walter contacted Vernon lawyer Neil Davidson. Within days, all financial activity had been restored. “I decided then that I wanted to be a lawyer to help people with their problems,” said Derkaz. Born in Ontario, she moved to the Shuswap in 1958 at age three. Her dad ran the Consumers Co-Operative but he branched out and opened a shoe store in 1958. Ten years later, a store was added in Vernon, where Derkaz worked shifts during summer holidays. Derkaz, 59, was focused even at an early age. “I was horse crazy from the time I could walk and I was determined to have a horse at age nine,” she said. Trying to encourage this equine passion, her parents sent her to live with a Notch Hill fam-

ily for the summer. She was barely on site when she negotiated terms to purchase a horse for $150 (half of the money from her and half from her dad). Derkaz graduated from Salmon Arm Senior High in 1972 at age 16, and immediately went off to law school in Vancouver. Completing her law degree in 1978, she articled in Salmon Arm, joined a law firm and eventually opened her own practice. She sold the firm in 1991 and retired as a lawyer in 1996 so she could be more involved in the community. “I grew up as an only child and had the sense that you need to give back to the community. I was the nerdy chair of the (high school) year book club,” she said. Derkaz has also been involved in literacy programs and the film society, but her proudest achievement is helping found the successful Shuswap Community Foundation, which uses endowments to support local charities. Another passion is running, which she often does with her husband of 26 years, Don Derby. “It’s ironic because I was always the last to be chosen for sports in school,” she said. Derkaz has accomplished half-marathons and she believes running has provided her with some basic skills to prepare her for being an MP in Ottawa. “I’ve learned to be on the ground and notice the small changes. When you are running a route, you notice changes in the seasons and in people. In some ways, it takes the same focus (to run for office). You need the skills of concentrating and observing, set-

Shopping locally employs your neighbors, reducing their carbon footprints as well. Another benefit to shopping locally that’s often overlooked is the impact it can have on your neighbors’ carbon footprint. Local businesses often employ members of the community, which translates to shorter commutes, less highway congestion and less fuel consumption. So while shopping locally reduces your carbon footprint, it’s also helping members of your community reduce their own potentially negative impact on the environment.

The session will look at such topics as: What is an ethical will? Who should write one? What should you include? For more information and to register, call 250-832-6385.

highway,” commented Coun. Colleen Anderson. In addition, district community planner Mike Marrs said he would also bring the matter up in discussions with the Ministry of Highways and Transportation regarding traffic studies being done in the Two Mile area, adding staff will be talking to the ministry about interconnectivity across the highway and speed limits through the area. “I’m sure they will be concerned about this this issue as well,” said Marrs. Fallis is grateful council is willing to offer support, and was also pleased to learn about the traffic studies and that the posted speed limits may change.

A Two Mile parent has garnered some political support in her effort to get her children safely to and from school. On Wednesday, District of Sicamous council and staff received a request from Melissa Fallis, who is in the process of appealing a school bus route change that requires her daughters, ages six and eight, to cross Highway 97A to catch the school bus. In an email to council, Fallis says her eightyear-old daughter suffers from epileptic seizures, and can black out at any time for up to 30 seconds, adding to her concern for her kids having to cross the highway. School District #83

Fallis’ residence is 3.9 kilometres away. Fallis is contesting this policy, arguing there be an appeals process for parents of students whose “required walking route to school poses a threat to their safety,” and that bus transportation be provided for routes determined to be unsafe. Council unanimously supported a resolution to have staff review the policy change request provided by Fallis to see if district support can be provided. “I don’t know if any of you have tried to cross Highway 97, but I work there and try to cross that highway quite a bit and it’s insane, and it’s dangerous, and there’s no way we should be sending little kids across that
