Yes side begins arts-centre campaign ANDREA KLASSEN

STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

With six weeks to go until a Nov. 7 referendum, supporters of the proposed performing-arts centre made their case for the first time in the parking lot they hope to see turned into a $90-million theatre space. “Kamloops needs this performing arts centre,” Yes Campaign chairman and local relator Brendan Shaw told supporters yesterday during a press conference at the former Kamloops Daily News site on Seymour Street.

Among the committee’s members are representatives from many of the city’s arts groups, including the Kamloops Film Society, the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra and Western Canada Theatre. Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (KCBIA) president Mike Popoff said he sees the centre as “transformative” for the downtown and city. The KCIBA’s board of directors unanimously voted to support the project last week. Popoff said the centre’s 350-stall parkade will help

attract new businesses downtown, companies that might otherwise locate elsewhere due to employee parking concerns, and will bring more shoppers into the core. Monica Dickinson of Tourism Kamloops — which announced its support for the project this week — said arts and culture events help her organization sell Kamloops to tourists in the off season. “We have seen the results when we host great sporting events, great community events and great arts and culture events, and this

performing-arts centre will become another great venue to host those events,” she said. The city is asking residents for permission to borrow up to $49 million for the arts centre, which will include a 1,200-seat main stage theatre and 350-seat black box as well as studio space. The remainder of the funding will come from gaming and federal gas tax funds the city receives annually, a pair of one per cent tax hikes in 2016 and 2017 and revenue from parking meters downtown.

The city also hopes to secure $10 million in grants and naming-rights deals, while philanthropists Ron and Rae Fawcett have pledged to donate $5 million if the referendum passes. With a tight timeline to work with, Shaw said the committee plans to home in on supporters of the arts centre and make the case for the project on social media. “We want to make sure that people understand the referendum date is coming up fast and to get all the facts out to them,” he said.

Yes Committee for Kamloops Performing Arts chairman Brendan Shaw (left) helped committee members officially kick off the Yes campaign for the proposed performing-arts centre yesterday at the former home of the Kamloops Daily News. The arts centre will rise there, at Seymour Street and Fourth Avenue, if voters approve the project in a Nov. 7 referendum.

Sports council in favour A familiar group from referendums past is lending its support to the campaign for a performing-arts centre in Kamloops. The Kamloops Sports Council, one of the driving forces behind the 2003 Tournament Capital referendum, said yesterday it is endorsing a yes vote in the Nov. 7 referendum. “The sports community has firsthand knowledge of what enhanced facilities can do,” said council president Henry Pejril in a release. Pejril said the 2003 vote, which led to the expansion of sports facilities across the city, enabled sports groups to bring major national and international sporting events to town and increased tourism to the city. “It’s now the arts and culture community’s turn,” he said.

TRU TO VICTORIA: WE ARE A HAVE-NOT UNIVERSITY CAM FORTEMS

STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Students, faculty and administration at Thompson Rivers University came together Thursday to make a plea for an overhaul of post-secondary funding in B.C. “TRU’s ability to focus on both teaching and research is currently being undermined by the existing funding model,” the three groups said in a statement to the select standing committee on government finance and services, which met in Kamloops on Thursday morning at Sheraton Four Points hotel. While representatives from Thompson Rivers University typical make presentations to the committee, this year marked the first time three groups — faculty, student union and administration — joined to call for a revamped funding formula.

Raise-a Reader Day looms

Before TRU was formed in 2005, representatives pledged the newly minted university would not ask for additional funding for five years. That formula remains largely unchanged and TRU representatives say the institution has become a have-not university as a result. According to figures presented by TRU Student Union, the university receives about $8,000 a year for each student. That compares to upwards of $10,000 at the big three universities — UBC, SFU and UVic. The University of Northern B.C. receives $13,000 a year in perstudent funding. TRU’s per-student amount is clustered with other colleges given university status, including University of Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island University. Administration and faculty also complained TRU is given the short-

shrift on research funding and receives nothing for graduate education. “It puts us at a competitive disadvantage with other institutions,” board of governors chairman Brian Ross told the committee. The student union is also pushing the B.C. Liberal government to replace the current system of loans with needsbased grants. The goal is to have students burdened with less than $3,000 a year in debt, rather than today’s average of $10,000 for those who require loans. Other presenters included Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and Venture Kamloops. Thursday marked the second day of hearings for the committee, which is made up of Liberal and NDP MLAs. It will present a report as part of the pre-budget consultation. The B.C. Liberal government is considering changes that would make it easier for

On Tuesday morning, remember to put a few extra coins in your pocket for Raise-a-Reader Day in Kamloops, Barriere, Chase, Clearwater and Logan Lake.

All money collected will stay in the

first-time homebuyers, including relief from the property purchase tax. However, committee chairman Scott Hamilton, a Liberal MLA from Delta-North, said the committee has heard little on the issue in its first few days of hearings. “We heard a lot about that a couple years ago. “They [presenters] were saying, ‘Axe the tax or reform it.’ Guess what? Sales are ripping and we’re not hearing that.” And, while Hamilton said he understands hardship faced by students, he noted the reality is many are working through tough times. His daughter, Paige, is a business student in Kelowna, where she works full time while taking three courses on campus and one online. She’s also managing a new mortgage for a house she bought with her father. “She’s managing,” Hamilton said.

community to help fund local family literacy programs. Volunteers will be visible on city streets, at high pedestrian traffic areas, schools, and bus and coffee stops. In Kamloops, the funds raised will support the two literacy groups — the Kamloops Early Language and Literacy Initiative and Literacy in Kamloops, both of which provide free literacy programs in the community.

FIGHTING FOR HISPART 1 OF 2 LIFE After a 12-year career as an NHL enforcer, 48-year-old Rudy Poeschek is slowly losing his memory, his hearing — and maybe his life TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

F

ive-year-old Rudy Poeschek had no idea the impact his dream would have on his life. As a kindergartener, the Kamloops native set his sights on the National Hockey League after a chance encounter with Vancouver Canucks captain Orland Kurtenbach at a school skating competition. The hockey star warmed up to the youngster after watching him win an onice race against kids a year older. “He took a real liking to me and he was walking around the arena with me on his shoulders,” Poeschek told KTW. “After that, my goal as a five-year-old was to play in the NHL.” *** Chronic traumatic encephalopathy — known as CTE — is a disease that has been found to have afflicted many athletes who played collision sports like hockey and football. “It is a chronic, progressive neurological disorder similar to Alzheimer’s disease but, neuropathologically, distinctly different,” said Dr. Robert Cantu, professor of neurosurgery at Boston University and one of the world’s leading experts on CTE. “It’s essentially caused by rattling your brain around in your head — a lot.” CTE can cause people to act out, and bring about depression and anxiety. “These people may have irritability and impulse-control issues,” Cantu said. “Behavioural and mood issues will always be part of

the symptoms, especially the violent, out of control behaviour.” Many of the CTE cases Cantu has studied involve ex-athletes who have developed addictions and run afoul of the law. *** After spending time in his childhood in Kitimat, 100 Mile House and Vernon, Poeschek wound up being listed in the Western Hockey League by his hometown Kamloops Jr. Oilers. As a 17-year-old, he found himself bouncing back and forth between Kamloops and the junior A Revelstoke Rangers. He was fighting — literally — to earn a spot on the Kamloops roster. “Because of my first year in junior, that’s how I became a tough guy,” Poeschek said. “It was back and forth between Kamloops and Revelstoke, sometimes playing six games in a week because I was playing in both places. “When I got called up, I wanted to do anything I could to stay. That’s where I started becoming confident with the fighting — and I saw it as a means to sticking. “Once I was in that mode, I was stuck in it. I was so dominant at doing it. “And, when you realize you’re good at doing something, you start enjoying it, too.” *** Cantu said hockey players — especially those who drop the gloves often — are at a high risk for CTE. “That’s a huge risk factor,” he said. “In our NHL cohort for patients with CTE, most have been enforcers, most have been fighters.” The problem is, Cantu

said, CTE can’t easily be diagnosed. “It can be highly suspected if you understand well the symptoms somebody’s had, but you can only diagnose it with certainty after death,” he said. CTE can only be detected by studying brain tissue. Cantu said 95 per cent of the brains of former National Football League players donated to CTE research have tested positive for the disease. Cantu said there have been between 10 and 20 exNHL players confirmed to have had CTE. The list includes Bob Probert, one of Poeschek’s former on-ice foes who died in 2010, Derek Boogaard, Steve Montador, Rick Martin and Reg Fleming. CTE has been suspected, but never confirmed, in the deaths of former NHLers Wade Belak and Rick Rypien. *** Poeschek would not have described himself as a tough guy before he started playing junior hockey. “When you first start fighting, you don’t really know how to fight,” he said. “You’re going off instinct. “You’re just learning as you go along.” Poeschek said the fact

he kept bouncing back and forth between Kamloops and Revelstoke helped him excel as a fighter. “I’d go down to Revelstoke and I’d be fighting all the time against these younger guys,” he said. “Then I’d have confidence and I would go back to the Western League and I was fighting all these older guys who were supposedly tough.” Poeschek said one fight stands out from his time in Kamloops — a tilt with legendary enforcer Stu Grimson at Memorial Arena in the 1984 WHL final. Kamloops coach Bill Laforge did not want Poeschek to take on Grimson. “He’s like, ‘Just leave him on the ice, he’s not that good,’” Poeschek said. “I was like, ‘That’s what they say about me.’ “He was worried if I lost the fight it would give their team momentum.” Poeschek said he soon found himself on the ice with an eager Grimson. “I looked over at the bench and Laforge is shaking his head no,” he said. “Then I look at Stu and I say, ‘Eff this, we’re fighting.’ I wasn’t going to turn him down. “The fight went really

well in my favour. I ended up cutting him for nine stitches and closing one of his eyes. “I beat him pretty good and it helped us win that championship. “I had the fans chanting my name. They used to chant, ‘Rudy, Rudy.’ “That was pretty special.” *** Poeschek’s mind is failing him. “I misplace everything every day,” the 48-year-old said. “It’s a disaster. “In the summertime, it’s hot and it cools off at night, I’ll go up and turn the air conditioning off and open all the windows, then go back to what I was doing. “Ten minutes later, I go back to turn off the air conditioning again. “I forgot I turned it off.” Poeschek’s wife, Heather, has been creative in their Brocklehurst home to keep things from going missing. “I try to think, ‘Let’s have a set place for keys, for wallet, for phone,’” she said. “I try not to think about it because, if I think about it, I get really upset.”

His personality has also changed, making him quick to anger, and Poeschek has suffered hearing loss in recent years. “His hearing has quickly, lately, just gone horribly,” Heather said. “I used to think he was just tuning me out, but he cannot hear. Then he gets agitated. It’s a circle of madness. “I don’t want to think about what it could be.” *** In 1985, Poeschek was the seventh pick of the 12th and final round of the NHL Entry Draft, selected by the New York Rangers. Poeschek said he got the news while playing cards with teammates at the house of longtime Blazer billet Doris Ruble. “Being drafted in the last round, it’s a long, long day,” he said. “I finally got a call from my agent. “I didn’t care I was drafted in the last round, I was just happy to be drafted. “I remember I kept saying, ‘I’m a Ranger. I’m a Ranger.’”

IN PART 2 In the Tuesday, Sept. 22, edition of KTW and online at kamloopsthisweek.com: After his playing career was cut short by injury, Rudy Poeschek’s life took a turn for the worse. He served three weeks in a Florida jail in 2005 before moving home to Kamloops. Last summer, he found himself in trouble with the law again.

Rudy Poeschek’s memory is failing him, his personality has changed and he is losing his hearing. He is part of a lawsuit being brought against the NHL by former players. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

Poeschek didn’t last long at New York’s training camp that fall, but he managed to crack a professional roster in 1987 when he was sent to the Denver Rangers, the NHL team’s International Hockey League affiliate. One of his first fights as a pro came against a familiar foe. “Stu Grimson,” Poeschek said. “He was playing in Salt Lake, and our minor-league captain, he came over and talked to me and he said, ‘You ever fought Grimson before?’

“I said, ‘Oh yeah, I beat him in junior.’ He said, ‘Well, beat him again tonight and it’ll make everything easier for us.’ “I ended up fighting him and ended up winning, so I guess it did help.” Like he did in Revelstoke, Poeschek said he continued to hone his fighting skills in Denver. “I knew that’s why I got drafted,” he said. “You’re continuously getting to be a better fighter.” The 1987-1988 season also marked Poeschek’s first NHL action — a one-game

call up that saw him register no points and two penalty minutes against Washington at Madison Square Garden. “No fights,” Poeschek said. “They really didn’t have anyone to drop the gloves with. When I was on the ice, there wasn’t any takers.” In his second pro season,

Poeschek stayed with the big club. In 52 games, he recorded 25 fighting majors. “I was busy fighting just about every game,” he said. “I was just happy to be there. I was just doing whatever I had to do to stay there.” He was also a 23-yearold Kamloops boy living

his dream in the Big Apple, appearing on Late Night with David Letterman and The Howard Stern Show. “I remember having dinner with Christopher Reeve, Donald Trump,” he said, adding he still considers James Lipton a close friend. “Our captain at the time was dating a supermodel and, after the game, he would say, ‘You want to go to a party?’” After asking for a trade in 1991, Poeschek was dealt to Winnipeg and bounced around the minor leagues before landing with Tampa Bay two years later. By the time his second year in Tampa rolled around, Poeschek was newly divorced and ready to get on with his career. That’s when he met his second wife, Heather. “We met at a bar in the off-season,” Poeschek said. “She didn’t know who I was, which was good.” Poeschek was popular with fans in Tampa Bay, even running a childhood literacy program in local schools called Reading with Rudy. “I would visit these middle-school kids and it was like a reading challenge,” he said. “If they accomplished the reading challenge, then

they got to have ‘Pizza with Poeschek.’ “It was nice being down there. It was great wearing shorts and flip-flops to practice. “You get on a flight and you’ve got to remember to bring your overcoat.” *** Poeschek is involved in a lawsuit being brought against the NHL by former players. A Minnesota-based law firm is investigating allegations that the NHL hid concussion risks from its players over a decades-long period. “Such risks could put players at a substantially higher risk of developing brain-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, and other memory-related disorders,” states a case overview obtained by KTW. The document lists poor memory, mood swings and personality changes as health risks associated with traumatic head injuries. In 2013, a class-action suit brought against the NFL by a group of former football players resulted in a $765-million settlement. The NHL head-injury case has not yet been certified class-action and remains before an American court.

THE HOT AND NOT OF THE WEEK Kamloops This Week looks at the stories of the week — the good, the bad and all in-between:

HOT: The debate surrounding the proposed $90-million performin-arts centre. Voters go to the polls on Nov. 7 and the race to convince has started. Yesterday, the official Yes side held a press conference at the site of the proposed arts centre — the former Kamloops Daily News property — to promote the endeavour. In the days to come, there will surely be an organized No side vying for voters’ hearts and minds. NOT: The Republican debates south of the border. Oh, they are entertaining as hell and fun to watch, but substance has been tossed to the curb in favour of sniping, The Donald and far too many candidates on one stage. Contrast the GOP debate circus with the debates in the Canadian federal election and it is not surprising why pundits in the United States have waxed eloquent about the superior of our campaign as it relates to appealing to the intelligent voter.

OUR

VIEW

HOT: Wednesday night’s Fashion Speaks fundraiser at Thompson Rivers University, which was held to help an organization that works with the families of missing and murdered aboriginal women. Planning was done lightning-quick and organizers even managed to bring in a celebrity who has made Canada proud — Mrs. Universe Ashley Burnham-Callingbull.

Campaign complaining

W

hen you are a defending champion who has held the crown for almost a decade, you’re going to be the target. You’re going to be attacked. You’re going to be the prey. Over time, there is going to be a real difference in how the public reacts to you and a perceived difference to how the media treats you. So, it never ceases to amuse when champions in the political field forget this reality and blame the messenger for including in coverage the fact there exist those who may not be enamoured of the title holder. Case in point is the reaction of some Conservative supporters to the manner in which this newspaper and other media in Kamloops reported on Monday’s visit to the city by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The Conservative leader’s visit was cloaked in secrecy, with time and place and details on how to attend not being released until shortly before the event. It is understandable to a degree as Harper is a head of state. He is still the PM. There are legitimate security concerns that must be addressed. There were Kamloops residents who attended and were asked to leave for various reasons. Some were shown the door because it was obvious they were there to protest. Again, nothing unusual there. Outside, there was the standard array of protesters, voicing their objection to all things Conservative.

Newsroom

MUSINGS As part of KTW’s coverage, we published on page A7 one story quoting a few protesters and a few supporters, along with a small photo of a group of protesters. We also published a two frontpage stories: one on Harper’s speech (with a large photo of the prime minister speaking to supporters) and one on news that day of the Conservative government’s surprising $1.9-billion surplus. Both of these stories continued to page A5 and A7, respectively, with A5 also including a photo of former city councillor Nelly Dever (and others) carrying pro-Conservative sings. Finally, we also published a photo page from the event, containing three pictures: a lead photo of Harper with Riversong’s Mike Miltimore as they examined a guitar; a secondary photo of a group of supporters; and a smaller photo at the bottom of the page showing a creatively clad protester. When one compares KTW’s coverage of Harper’s visit and finds claims of bias, one can only surmise that coverage by other media can be labelled treasonous for we

devoted the least amount of attention to protesters of any media outlet in town. But, again, when you hold the crown and have everyone gunning for you, there will be a perceived difference in how you feel the media treats you. In this case, those Conservatives crying foul are wrong and need to have a skin thicker than their support in east Vancouver to maintain any credibility. *** Also crying foul has been much of the left due to the fact Conservative candidate Cathy McLeod has decided to skip some issue-specific forums. Their whining is transparently weak. By the time voters go to the polls on Oct. 19, McLeod will have attended 10 debates, including the KTW-sponsored Oct. 14 event at Thompson Rivers University. McLeod has thus far skipped a forum on Canada Post home delivery, the Council of Canadians farmers’ market event and an eventually cancelled debate organized by the Kamloops & District Labour Council. Kudos to the incumbent MP for taking a pass on playing the part of a political pinata. Why would McLeod attend the labour council event when its president is publicly campaigning for the NDP? Why would she take a seat at the farmers’ market when those very organizers were picketing her office a day before? If a voter cannot come to a decision with 10 debates from which to choose, perhaps his/her ballot should be revoked. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

YOUR OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

SKY WILL NOT FALL WITHOUT PAC

FULLCONTACT CROSSING Editor: Please tell me the newly opened resurfaced southbound lanes of Overlanders Bridge are not complete, that the inverted speed bumps at each bridge joint are only temporary to ensure motorists keep to the construction speed limit of 30 km/h until project completion. Otherwise, our $10-million dollar bridge rehabilitation better include mouth guards for Overlanders users to avoid chipping a tooth or receiving a concussion. R.W. Sharp Kamloops

Editor: Re: Linda Davidson’s letter of Sept. 8 regarding the need for a performing-arts centre (‘Let’s build the performing-arts centre’): According to her, the sky is falling when she claims “there is an exodus every weekend of theatre lovers who travel to Kelowna, Vancouver and Prince George to enjoy theatre and music in first-class venues.” An exodus? Wow! That conjures images of convoys

of buses and lineups of airplanes packed with artsy-fartsies heading out to civilized parts of the province, never to return. Give me a break. At the end of her letter, Davidson writes: “Yes, things are bad right now. The world sucks economically, politically and environmentally. Health care is a disaster.” So, her solution would be to build an arts centre at a cost of $90 million? Of course, we all know that by the

time it’s all said and done, it will have ballooned to $200 million, all taken from the taxpayers’ pocket. That would go a long way toward getting our own cancer clinic or attracting more badly needed doctors. Anybody who has not lost touch with reality would know we should decide what the priorities are and use our money where it is actually needed. C.B. Villeneuve Kamloops

DRIVER ERROR KNOWS NO SPECIFIC AGE Editor: I disagree with Brian Husband’s recent letter to the editor with respect to older drivers. Most of his points are not well taken nor thought-out in my view. To suggest we should start a conversation on this matter and at the same time imply we should emulate a communist country like China and pull driver’s licences at 75 is absurd. Granted, the older population may have some contribution to accident statistics; however, there are many other factors to consider before this narrative can even begin. As Husband has mentioned in his letter, distracted drivers play a significant role with regard to carnage on our roadways. I know young people who should not have the privilege to drive, and some older people as well, but to marginalize or discriminate because of age is just wrong. Everyone is different and have diverse

WATER AN ISSUE WITH AJAX

Editor: I have some idea what happens at an open-pit copper mine as I worked at Island Copper near Port Hardy for 22 years, an area where water was never an issue. Water is a necessary

levels of capabilities. Having said that, it is up to the government and the regulators to ensure the right people have licences to drive. I vacation in areas that have large winter populations of older and retired people, in some cases outstripping the locals. Although I don’t have any empirical data of accident statistics, I do know when driving around the region and coming across accidents, all age groups are involved. I would think that, when it comes to giving up a driver’s licence, half the battle is when to do so. That is when family and friends may have to intervene. The government should be the fallback lever to curtail one’s privilege based on law and health, not on some arbitrary age limit. Dave Brummund Kamloops resource and the proposed Ajax copper mine will use thousands of gallons a day. We have water restrictions in summer. What do Kamloopsians think will happen if this mine is approved and they use up what they

have up there? The next step is to come after our water. This mine is really too close to town. Let us trust common sense will prevail and say no to Ajax. Mike Hancock Kamloops

United Way’s $6.5M goal DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The United Way of the Thompson-NicolaCariboo had two numbers to promote as it held its annual kickoff breakfast yesterday — three and 6.5. Three is how long the campaign focus is in years for the organization that supports 52 groups and 64 programs that help more than 18,000 people in the region. The other number is the three-year goal to raise $6.5 million. United Way board president Jason Fawcett

told the packed ballroom at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre the campaign starts with $186,743 already collected from corporate sponsors. The goal is to help more than 5,000 children and youth during that period through mentoring, art and antibullying programs, and by providing healthy breakfasts, among other projects. It wants to help more than 4,000 people move from a life of poverty into housing and jobs through social housing, the city’s rent bank and life-skills programs. It anticipates through a strong community focus to provide supports for 8,850 seniors and people living in isolation to live healthier lives. Several awards were presented to organizations and individuals who were instrumental in the success of the

DALE BASS/KTW

Supt. Brad Mueller talks at the campaign kickoff breakfast for the United Way of the ThompsonNicola-Cariboo about the upcoming RCMP Regimental Ball, which will be held in the Grand Hall at Thompson Rivers University on Oct. 17.

2014-2015 campaign that raised $2.2 million, including Finning, the Kamloops RCMP, Samantha Braaten of Vavenby, Thompson Rivers University and management and workers at Gibraltar and Highland Valley mines. Highland Valley received much applause when the audience learned it is marking its 50th year of support for

the region’s campaign and, in the past five years, has raised $3.2 million. The RCMP announced its annual Jail and Bail fundraiser, which has been held in November, will be moved to the spring. Supt. Brad Mueller said the detachment is planning a Regimental Ball on Oct. 17 and wants to focus its energies on it.

KAMLOOPS STORM’S LEE MAKES KOREAN TEAM FOR UNDER-18 TOURNAMENT ADAM WILLIAMS

STAFF REPORTER

T

he 2018 Olympic Winter Games are never far from Jackson Lee’s mind. After all, they’re being played in his home country. Lee, a Kamloops Storm forward, hails from the city of Incheon, South Korea, about 150 kilometres west of Pyeongchang, home of the 2018 Games. He dreams of being on the Korean national team when the Games come to South Korea a little over two years from now. This summer, Lee’s Olympic dream became a little more real as he made the South Korean team for the 2016 IIHF World Under-18 Championship being played in Asiago, Italy. The Division 1 Group B tournament includes Hungary, Japan, Italy, Slovenia and Ukraine. “Obviously, it will be a great

experience for me, playing against all the guys from other countries and going to Italy with the team,” Lee told KTW. He returned to Korea for tryouts in August and will head straight to Italy following the end of the Kamloops Storm’s KIJHL season in March. And, while the tournament is certainly on his mind, Lee’s current focus is his season with the Storm. Head coach Ed Patterson said Lee figures to be a big part of his club’s success, part of a forward corps that may be faster and more skilled than the group that took Kamloops to the KIJHL championship last season. Patterson played for the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins at the same time as Jim Paek, director of hockey for the Korea Ice Hockey Association. That, coupled with seeing Lee play in a few tournaments for the Burnaby Winter Club against his son, former Kamloops Storm forward Max Patterson, was enough to have

the coach excited about what Lee could bring to the Tournament Capital. “He skates great, he’s got a heavy shot, he’s competitive, strong on the puck and great in his own end,” Patterson said. “He just has to draw out the offensive side of his game a bit more — he has it, he just has to learn how to use it a little better because he has always been so reliable and so dependable. “He won’t be in the league for very long.” Lee had one point in Kamloops’ opening weekend on the road. Storm fans will have their first opportunity to watch the forward this weekend, with the club’s season opener against the Revelstoke Grizzles tonight and a game against the defending KIJHL champion Kimberly Dynamiters tomorrow. Both games go at 7 p.m. on McArthur Island. Lee, who turnes 17 on Dec. 9, is still too young to be considered

for the South Korean national team. But, a lot can change in two years, just as a lot has changed since he first came to Canada three years ago. Lee left Korea when he was in Grade 9, determined to play in a hockey-mad nation where he felt he had the most to gain. Hockey in Korea doesn’t compare to baseball or soccer — there are limited options for a player like Lee, who was always one step ahead of the rest of his age group. The experience wasn’t always easy — he billeted with a family in Vancouver and said he hated it. He spoke next to no English and there weren’t many people he felt he could relate to. After his sister moved to Vancouver from Australia, things got a little better. His English improved — Lee speaks with only a hint of an accent now — and he started to enjoy life in Canada.

Catharine Pendrel will get the chance to avenge her ninth-place finish at the 2012 Olympic Summer Games in London. The Kamloops resident has qualified to compete for Canada in cross-country mountain biking at the Rio Games next summer.

Perhaps Catharine Pendrel will find a bookie in Las Vegas taking action on crosscountry mountain biking at Rio 2016. Her odds of winning gold are not what they were heading into the 2012 Olympic Summer Games in London, but she didn’t fare too well as a favourite — and underdogs pay out big. “Every time someone mentions Rio, I realize, wow, I actually know that I’m going now,” Pendrel told KTW yesterday from Sin City, where she is attending a bike trade event with

her LUNA Chix Pro teammates. “It’s definitely exciting. I’ll be sitting down this fall to plan next season.” Pendrel, 34, earned pre-selection to the female Canadian crosscountry mountain biking team — one of two available spots on the squad — that will compete at the Brazil Olympics, which run from Aug. 5 to Aug. 21. The Kamloops resident did what was required of her to nail down the job — she was the No. 1 Canadian

and had a top-five finish at the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Mountain Bike World Championships in Vallnord, Andorra, on Sept. 5. She slid in the back door, finishing fifth at worlds in a time of 1:54:59, ahead of Oshawa, Ont., product Emily Batty, whose time of 1:56:26 landed her in seventh place. “The fact that I had two weak runs going into the world championships made it easier for me to be happy finishing fifth,” Pendrel said. “I was a little hesitant about how I had been racing.” See ONE, A16

Pendrel still managed to finish fourth overall in the World Cup standings and the Fredericton, New Brunswick, native enjoyed a successful 2015 campaign, winning silver (Batty, 27, won gold) at the Pan Am Games in Toronto on July 12 and claiming her sixth national title in Saint Felicien, Que., on July 18. That she squeaked into the pre-selection spot won’t bother her a lick — the Maple Leaf shirt is hers and knowing that so early is a massive advantage. The official announcement for the

Her focus will soon turn to Brazil, but not before she makes a few more work-related stops and takes time to rest. After Vegas, Pendrel will fly to San Franciso for a sponsor event, then head to Rio with a four-person Canadian team for an Olympic test run on Oct. 11. Down time will arrive in November, when her parents plan to come to Kamloops from New Brunswick to hang out before their daughter kicks into high gear again. Marie-Helene Premont, who won silver at the Athens Olympics in 2004, passed the Canadian women’s cross-country mountain-biking torch to Pendrel eight years ago in Beijing. Pendrel would love to hand it to Batty after Rio and ride off into the sunset with Olympic hardware around her neck. “It gives me goosebumps to think about medalling at Olympics,� Pendrel said. “Hopefully, I can have a good race.�

Canoe and kayak club impresses in Maple Ridge The Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club grabbed a pair of podium finishes at the Pacific Cup and BC Bantam Championships in Maple Ridge. The KCKC was second in the bantam championships and third in the Pacific Cup, competing against teams from British Columbia, Alberta and Washington state. The club’s under-15 team, made up of Spencer Robinson, Aiden Tabata, Matao Buist, Jacob Brochu and Stanley Netherton, took first place in their division, as did the

under-11 team including Jonas Decker, Vladimir Demishkevich, Ashley Weir, Andrew Clark, Elisabeth Clark, Chaz Zaldo, Lucas Zaldo, Tate Solomonson, Liam Grover and Mischa Grover. Demishkevich was the top paddler at the event, collecting six gold medals and two silver medals. Robinson, Tabata and Decker each collected three gold medals to go with a handful of other podium finishes at the event. For complete results, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com.

Canada helped Lee’s game From A14

And, playing in the nation home to the last two gold medals in Olympic hockey has had the impact Lee hoped for when he first left his home in Incheon. “When I was in Korea, I was with my friends and I was at the same level as them for hockey,” he said. “Being in Canada for a couple of years, I go back, see my friends, have practice with them and I see the gap.

“I’m always happy for that — I’m getting better.” Lee heads to Italy with the intention of winning a gold medal for his country — still a fledgling nation in comparison to the world’s hockey superpowers. But, he also hopes to turn a few heads and to be noticed by those selecting the Korean Olympic team for the 2018 Games. When asked what it would mean for him to play in the tourna-

ment, he talked about playing against his favourite player, Pavel Datsyuk of the NHL’s Detroit Red Wings. He had no words to describe being an Olympian in his home nation, in front of his parents who let him come to Canada to pursue his dream years ago. Most of all, he smiled. “It’s actually my idols becoming my enemies,” he said. “That would be great.”

Underdog Canadians set to open Rugby World Cup NEIL DAVIDSON

THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Canada was ranked 12th in the world heading into the 2007 Rugby World Cup and 14th going into the 2011 competition. The Canadian men are No. 18 as they prepare to open the 2015 tournament against sixth-ranked Ireland in Cardiff tomorrow. Match time is 6:30 a.m. Canada is a 66-1 underdog to upset the Irish, according to British bookmaker William Hill. Despite the long odds and a bumpy road to the tournament, Canada’s spirit is strong. “When we’ve got all our best players healthy and on the pitch, we’re here to upset some people,’’ veteran lock Jamie Cudmore said on the eve of his fourth World Cup. “We’re not here to make up the numbers. “As tough as it’s been this summer, I know the quality and the fight that’s in this squad . . . I think it’s going to be a really positive World Cup for us.’’

Hurt by injuries and unavailable players, Canada has gone 2-11-0 in Test play since the start of 2014. Only No. 19 Uruguay and No. 20 Namibia are ranked lower than Canada at the tournament. The rankings slide comes despite better Canadian coaching and facilities. While Canada has progressed, other countries have done more. “We are only just hanging on and we’re going to get further behind unless we get some sort of professional environment in North America, some professional competition,’’ Canadian coach Kieran Crowley said. Crowley points to 17th-ranked Romania, whom his team will face on Oct. 6. “They’ve got seven professional clubs in Bucharest. Those players are training like our carded players every day. Georgia has got the same. All their club players get paid to play.’’ “Don’t get me wrong,’’ added Crowley, a former all Black who took over the Canadian

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane for the first time addressed the sexual assault investigation against him yesterday and declared he had “done nothing wrong’’ and expects to be absolved. Appearing calm and poised, the 26-year-old Kane acknowledged it has been an “incredibly difficult time for many people’’ since the allegation surfaced in early August. “I cannot apologize enough for the distraction this has caused my family, teammates, this incredible organization and, of course, our fans,’’ said Kane, flanked by team officials including team President and CEO John McDonough. “While I have too much respect for the legal process to comment on an ongoing matter, I am confident once all the facts are brought to light I will be absolved of having done nothing wrong.’’ Kane is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her 20s in August at his off-season home outside Buffalo, N.Y., a person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because police have not revealed details of the case. Kane has not been charged, but the case has shadowed the Blackhawks for weeks as they prepare for a season that begins at home on Oct. 7.

 Obituaries & In Memoriam  AMOS (TAYLOR) GARRETT KENDAL

FLORENCE “GRANNY” LOUISA MAY BLANCHER (nee KING) August 23, 1918 – September 3, 2015 Florence (Granny) Blancher’s family would like to announce her sudden yet peaceful passing at Hospice House on September 3, 2015. She was predeceased by her husband, Sandy, step-daughter, Velma, sister, Victoria, brothers, Emerson, Kingsley and Robert and granddaughter, Chrissy. Florence is survived by her five children, Brian Blancher (Lisa) of Tahlequah, Oklahoma, Penny Ouchi (Seiko) of Kamloops, BC, Bonnie Getz Watt (Robert) of Kitchener, Ont., Dale Moyer Bradford (Robert) of Ingersoll, Ont. and Lee Blancher of San Leon, Texas and sister-in-law, Elaine King of Milton, Ont. Florence is also survived by her nineteen grandchildren, twenty-nine great-grandchildren and eleven great-greatgrandchildren as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Granny was born and grew up in Chatham, Ontario. She lost her mom when she was three, but she was very close to her father. Granny loved and excelled at school. In her late teens, she started working and held jobs as a bookkeeper and secretary, while enjoying many adventures with her friends and cousin, Francis. Later, Granny became a farm girl, raising her family in West Oxford. After she and Sandy left the farm, Granny loved working at The Sentinel newspaper in Ingersoll. In 1974, Sandy and Granny moved out west to Barriere, BC and later settled in Kamloops where she often helped daughter, Penny, with her home daycare. Granny was an avid reader and loved doing her crossword puzzles. She was an amazing seamstress, sewing everything from dolls clothes to formal dresses for her granddaughters. She was a dedicated Blazers’ fan, holding onto her season’s tickets right up until this year. Granny was also a long-time supporter of the Booster Club, earning her 15-year pin for her loyalty. She traveled on many bus trips and sold 50/50 tickets. She lived and played at Desert Gardens, where she loved card games and special events, belonged to the Ladies’ Auxiliary and counted the daily till for the Oasis Café until her 96th birthday! Granny loved to travel and was always up for an adventure, travelling to the Caribbean, Honduras, Mexico, Texas and many trips around Canada. Her most recent trips included Vancouver, O’Keefe Ranch, Davison Orchards, baseball games in Seattle and camping at the Shuswap. Granny was a feisty, happy person who touched everyone she met. She was very social and loved to chat and share stories. Granny will be missed by so many. Many thanks for the love, care and respect shown to Granny by all family, friends, High Country Home Care, staff at RIH and Hospice House and Dr. Chip Bantock. A celebration of Granny’s life will be held on Sunday, September 20 at 2:30 p.m. at Desert Gardens (540 Seymour Street). Please feel free to wear bright colours to honour Granny’s sunny disposition! As per Granny’s request, cremains will be placed at a later date in Chatham, Ont. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Senior’s Community Centre (Desert Gardens), 540 Seymour Street, Kamloops, BC, V2C 2G9, telephone (250) 372-5110 or to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, BC, V2E 2S9.

JOANNE GRIS

In Loving Memory Of

1955 - 2015

JOHN “JACK” TOBIN

Joanne Gris passed away peacefully at home in Kamloops on September 12, 2015 with her husband at her side after an 11 year courageous battle with cancer. Joanne was born on March 28, 1955 in Fernie, British Columbia.

July 11, 1931 - September 16, 2015 John Patrick Tobin passed away peacefully at the age of 84 on the morning of September 16, 2015 in Kamloops, B.C. It was not with a weak heart, but with a heart full of love, warmth, compassion, and courage in which he left this earth, content in knowing he had fulfilled his life here.

Joanne was a bright student who graduated from Sparwood High School and attended both Capilano and Cariboo College where she obtained her Outdoor Recreation Degree. She also obtained her Social Work Degree while working full time and raising three children, receiving the Silver Medal for highest marks while doing so. Joanne was a great leader who focused on her career with passion and integrity, retiring from the Ministry of Social Development after 33 years of Provincial Government Service. She then went on to work for Community Living Services for several years before spending her remaining years mainly travelling to Phoenix, Mexico and Alaska with family. She most of all enjoyed her summers spending time at the family cabin on Kootenay Lake in Nelson, BC. Joanne also thoroughly enjoyed athletics and the outdoors. She loved to go on walks and eventually entered walking marathons in various places. She was a proficient Racquetball player in her earlier years and would enter competitive tournaments where she would often win the Kamloops Doubles City Championship. She enjoyed her years playing indoor and outdoor soccer and really enjoyed playing broomball where she competed in several National Championships. Joanne and her husband would travel the Province both playing in various tournaments, bringing their children with them, who would be commonly referred to as rink rats. Joanne had the most contagious smile which was always prevalent when spending time with her children, grandchildren, family and friends. She will be greatly missed as she was a true gem with special qualities for exemplifying how life should be lived. Joanne is predeceased by her mother Emma Gris and father-in-law Don Fraser. Joanne is survived by her father Remigio Gris, mother-in-law Dawn Fraser, husband Wayne Fraser, daughters, Brittany Parker (Alex) and Michelle Fraser, son Joshua Fraser (Cassie), grandchildren Liam Fraser and Mackenzie Laing, brothers Rick Gris (Shari) and Randy Gris (Mary), sister Linda Latka, brotherin-law Blair Fraser (Brenda), sisters-in-law Donna Fraser (Bill) and Judy Carvish (Brian), and many nieces and nephews. There will be a Celebration of Life service at the Calvary Community Church, 1205 Rogers Way, Kamloops, BC on Saturday, September 19th at 2:00 PM, with Pastor Don Maione officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent in her name to The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. www.cbcf.org/bc Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Garrett, till we meet again in the presence of Jesus. We have been incredibly blessed to have had the privilege of sharing his short life.

Thank You

NEVER QUIT When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill When funds are low and debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

q q q q

Success is failure turned inside out – The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – It’s when things seem worst that You must not quit!

Yes, you gotta have faith — in this life

T

his column is in response to Bill Ligertwood’s Aug. 18 Rational Thoughts column (‘You don’t ‘gotta have faith’’): In his column, Ligertwood expresses a view that has become all too common — the view that religion is a detrimental parasite and has been throughout history. I wholeheartedly disagree with this perspective and feel it glosses over Eastern religions and ignores contributions religion has made to education, stability and accountability among rulers. However, I have no desire to argue these points. I learned long ago that one makes very little progress arguing over beliefs.

MATT PIRODDI

You Gotta Have

FAITH

I do, however, take issue with Ligertwood’s condemnation of faith. Instead of arguing directly, I would like to express my own beliefs on the subject of faith, which I feel is a very important thing. A while ago, someone asked me how I could have such strong faith without any evidence. This got me thinking about what faith really is and from

where it comes. I decided that faith goes so much deeper than the dictionary definition. Faith is something that exists inside the mind, like happiness or sadness. Faith isn’t just a concept, it’s a very real feeling. It’s a sense of beauty, security and confidence that there is something greater out there. Like happiness and sadness, I’ve never felt I needed evidence or reason to justify these feelings. They’re just a part of who I am. That’s not to say faith is a substitute for rationality — far from it. Faith and rationality complement each other. In fact, faith isn’t something exclusive to religion. I identify faith very closely with the

concept of Musica Universalis, or the harmony of the spheres. The concept was thought up by Pythagoras of Samos (the triangle guy) after he discovered the mathematical relationships between harmonious musical notes. He thought that, similar to music, the entire universe behaved in an intricately connected, beautiful and harmonious manner. The universe makes sense and it’s wonderful. This idea was beloved to some degree by many of history’s greatest scientists as they sought to understand these intricate connections. And, I really do think this is a kind of faith. It’s still alive today as a more mystical

approach to science popularized by Carl Sagan. Ligertwood even alludes to Sagan’s most well-known quote regarding our origins as “star stuff.” There is an intrinsic feeling of divinity within us. We’ve looked at ourselves and the world and have seen too many coincidences for it to all be some random mess. We look and see order and that gives us hope. It gives us faith. Whether it’s faith in God or a unifying natural law is less important. The feeling it gives us is what matters. Faith is the feeling that unites us and drives us forward. It gives us the strength to do great things, make sacrifices, and find joy in life. It has heralded

advances in the sciences and humanities all throughout history. That Carl Saganstyle pantheistic awe continues to inspire scientists to unravel the mysteries. In communities around the world, faith gives people the courage to sacrifice some of their comfort to help those in need. Our innate sense of eternity gives us the confidence to act in the face of uncertainty and chaos. Faith unites us. It’s time for us to stop arguing the semantics of what God is and to just share in this feeling to which we can all relate. It doesn’t matter whether your faith and wonder drive you to pursue science or religion. It matters that we share and act with love.

So, I think you do need faith, not to believe in the next life, but to find joy and fruitfulness in this one. Matt Piroddi is a selfpublished author and part-time student.

Province adds 32 seats to TRU care-aid program DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Within a month of graduating in July, Tiara Zerr had a job working for Interior Health Authority at Overlander ExtendedCare Hospital. Her success, she told a gathering at Thompson Rivers University on Tuesday, came not just from doing well in the health-care assistant program, but from the mentoring and support her teachers gave her during the sevenmonth program. Addressing the crowd of students now in the program — some of them graduating next week — Zerr praised them for choosing a profession “that is nothing like you see on TV,” but which has brought her confidence and a sense of purpose. The crowd in the lab at the university’s

nursing school gathered Tuesday for an announcement by Health Minister Terry Lake, representing the Ministry of

Advanced Education, of a one-time $275,000 grant to add another 32 seats in the 64-seat program. Joking he has

never had “so many health-care workers watching my back,” Lake told them the career they have chosen is a critical compo-

nent of the health-care system. It’s one with job potential, as well; Lake said the region has seen a five per cent

growth in demand for health-care assistants in seniors’, assistedliving and residentialcare facilities. Lake referred to a report issued this week by the province’s seniors’ advocate, who talked about the weakness of the system to help seniors stay in their homes as long as possible due to a lack of respite beds and home care. Seniors’ Advocate Isobel Mackenzie noted in her report that 29 per cent of caregivers are experiencing distress trying to look after family members with dementia and other complex health issues. TRU president Alan Shaver said the money will make a difference not only to students, but to the community. “In a few short months, this group will be working and knowing every day they are making a difference in someone’s life.”

ADJUST DRIVING ROUTE FOR HIGHWAY CLOSURE The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is advising drivers and cyclists to take an alternative route — via Highway 97, 97A or 97B — from 8 a.m. to noon on Sunday to allow for rock scaling 13 kilometres west of Chase. Motorists are also advised to drive with caution, follow sings and watch for traffic control personnel. Weather could impact scheduling. For traffic updates, go online to drivebc.ca.

Amid controversey, TNRD working to regulate biosolids ADAM WILLIAMS

The ThompsonNicola Regional District is doing everything it

can to regulate the use of biosolids. At the direction of

the district’s board of directors, the TNRD held a public hearing

yesterday to consider zoning amendments to regulate commercial composting and limit the scale of agricultural composting in the region. In essence, the TNRD was looking to restrict the sale of bio solid compost. “What they [higher levels of government] do allow us to do is, through zoning, stop a farm or ranch from sell-

ing compost that they made on the land,” said Regina Sadilkova, the TNRD’s director of development services. “They can bring it in to their lands and that’s whether it’s manure, biosolids from human waste treatment plants, food scraps or mushroom compost. “But, what we can do is say you cannot sell or export that from the farm.” Under current regulations, farms are permitted to export 50 per cent of the compost they produce on the land, even if that compost was produced using biosolids. Landowners selling compost will be permitted to continue should the amendment pass, protected by a grandfather clause in the Local Government Act, but future operations will be restricted. Personal use will also be allowed continue and the change will apply only to rural properties. “If you’re a big ranch with 10 properties, you can spread it all over your 10 properties,”

Sadilkova said. “But, you can’t go selling it to golf courses and exporting it. It sort of limits the scale, again with some exceptions.” Sadilkova said local bodies like the TNRD are limited in their ability to regulate biosolid use. The TNRD is sponsoring two resolutions at the upcoming meeting of the Union of B.C. Municipalities, one of which is biosolidrelated and would see the province form a committee including local government representatives to make recommendations for changes to biosold regulatory and review processes. The district’s other resolution asks the province to provide the necessary resources to inspect and enforce provincial safety regulations, including the Fire Services Act, to provincial bodies, rather than downloading the responsibilities on local governments. No decision had been made by board members as of KTW’s press time.

Enter Sandman patio? Maybe Sandman Centre City Hall could soon be host to a patio, if the BC Liquor Control Board goes along with a request from the city of Kamloops. The city is seeking to increase the licensed capacity of the arena from 1,418 people to 2,239, and put a patio outside the Rivers Room, facing Riverside Park. Planning and development supervisor Eric Beach said the move would allow the city to license more of the arena floor, change rooms, hallways and a new bar. Beach said the city thinks the changes will have an “insignificant” impact on noise in the area, which is already home to Moxies and the Shark Club at the Sandman Signature Hotel across the street.

Pump repairs will cost taxpayers $400K Emergency repairs at a pump station in Aberdeen will cost the city $400,000, city council learned Tuesday. Public works director Jen Fretz said staff discovered a serious leak in the water booster station on Aberdeen Drive, which needed to be repaired immediately because of the area’s pre-existing slope stability issues. Fretz said its not clear what caused the leak, which must be fixed before the city can proceed with plans to repave Aberdeen Drive.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

New album, tour a Gogo DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

here was a moment last month when David Gogo paused to reflect. It was Aug. 30 and the B.C.-based bluesman was on stage at the Pacific National Exhibition, where he and his band were performing. Off in the distance, he could see the Agridome and his mind went back to the first concert he ever saw. It was there he saw Johnny Cash. “I actually mentioned it when I was on stage,” Gogo said. Music’s always been a big part of his life, growing up with parents who loved to go to concerts, to play records and who bought him his first instrument. Just a youngster, a guitar was too big for him, Gogo said, so mom and dad bought a ukulele — and his future was pretty much established. He’s not the only musician in the family, though; he has plenty of cousins who are performers, several of them in bands (cousin Paul of Trooper) or successful enough to get reviewed in major media (cousin John). Yes, they share the surname Gogo, which is the family name, although he’s pretty sure it may have been changed at some point back in the generations.

It’s not an uncommon name in Nanaimo, where he lives on the property his family bought in the late 1800s and where Mike Gogo’s Cedar Products is known not only for wood products, but for the Christmas tree farm on South Fork Road. Last week was important to Gogo; on Sept. 4, his 14th album, Vicksburg Calls, was released and it’s why he’s on the road, including a stop in Kamloops tomorrow at The Bassment. He acknowledges it’s a small venue — situated in an Aberdeen home, there’s only room for about 30 people — but notes his last gig in Kamloops at The Blue Grotto was sold out and kicked off the B.C. Interior Blues Society, an organization that announced it was shutting down earlier this year. Gogo regrets that, but said there are so many musicians in Canada touring and looking for gigs, it’s a lot of work to keep a society like that successful. As for The Bassment, he’s always excited to support new music venues and is looking forward to his acoustic performance. Vicksburg Calls comes from what Gogo described as his crusade — he hit the road a while ago not to make music, but to discover it, heading to the heart of the blues in Memphis and Mississippi, with side trips to Arkansas

and Alabama. He didn’t make it to Vicksburg, Miss., home of iconic bluesman Willie Dixon, but it did inspire him with the new recording, one that includes covers of songs by Neil Young (The Longer), Stephen Stills (Jet Set) and Annie Lennox (Why) and which features a band that includes Savoy Brown founder Kim Simmonds and Shawn Hall of The Harpoonist and the Axe Murder. With a band in Nanaimo, another in Ottawa and one he can call on in Holland, Gogo said he’s set for the tour.

He’s also got his iPhone ready — and it’s not just for staying in touch with his family in B.C. “All the photos on the new album, I took them with my iPhone,” Gogo said. “I’d set the timer, drop it up against a rock or something and then run to get the shot. “It’s really all just a bunch of selfies” — more moments connected to his music. The Kamloops show is open to all ages. It starts at 7:30 p.m. For more information, go online to thebassmentkamloops. com.

Review: Show was a kind of magic to create the visual image alongside the music. It’s clear it worked as most of the about 400 people at the theatre were dancing in their seats, clapping along, shredding air guitars and whistling when Taylor would — in true Freddie Mercury style — ditch his white T-shirt and jacket, draping a white towel around his shoulders. Kyle Thompson recreated Roger Taylor’s drum work — including a mag-

t was singalong time at Sagebrush Theatre Tuesday night — and the crowd knew every word. Even the two songs lead singer Giles Taylor called obscure (39 and Lover Boy) were familiar to most of the audience. Suffice to say this was a gathering of Queen fans ready to remember band — and its frontman, who would have turned 69 earlier this month. The Showtime production Queen: It’s A Kind of Magic is more than just a tribute band; it’s theatre with each of the four musicians sporting wigs and costumes

Ritchie Baker was given the challenge of portraying lead guitarist Brian May and, according to my guitarist son who accompanied me, he was almost as good as the real thing. Mercury’s longtime assistant Peter Freestone has been working with the Showtime band and his guidance was evident as they nailed some of the idiosyncracies, gestures and facial expressions of their characters. Taylor was particularly adept at it, from the way he

The set included the hits, opening with the title song, moving through Radio Gaga, Another One Bites the Dust, Play The Game, Killer Queen and others. After a 20-minute intermission more hits, starting with I Want it All and ending with Bohemian Rhapsody. That’s a lot of words in the 26-song set — and the Kamloops crowd loved every one of them.

BUBBLE SOCCER BOUNCES INTO TOWN

‘Today, hard tackling is allowed’ JESSICA WALLACE

PROUDLY PRESENTED BY

When Tony Lavin first learned about bubble soccer in 2011 through a viral video, he thought “that’s hilarious.” The online clip — which touts the Norwegian name for the game, Boblefotball — begins with a referee explaining the rules to a group of soccer players dressed in full kits. “Today, hard tackling is allowed,” the ref, translated into English, explains. “So, just go for it.” Players encased in giant plastic “bubble” spheres from the waist up take to the pitch, kicking the ball around in seemingly ordinary fashion — but with one

major difference. “You just start hitting people,” Lavin told KTW. “That’s where the fun factor comes in.” Lavin recently brought bubble soccer to Kamloops with a promotional event at Soccer Quest in North Kamloops. He said online exposure prompted popularity of the game in places like Europe and the United States, even catching the attention of late-night host Jimmy Fallon. Lavin brought the game to the Lower Mainland in 2014 — renting out the bubbles and aiding players with facility rentals — because, he said, he wanted to start a fun business. His company, B.C.

ates out of Chilliwack but, while visiting Kamloops over the summer, he had the idea to expand. It didn’t take much for him to bounce the big plastic bubbles along with the sport into the Tournament Capital. “I put them on my truck and trailer and basically go anywhere,” Lavin said, noting he also has sights for expanding to Vancouver Island and Whistler. Lavin said the Soccer Quest indoor facility is ideal due to challenges with hot and cold temperatures. He books tournaments or groups by the hour, with rates fluctuating based on numbers and facilities. A good gauge is about $20 per player, he said. So far in Kamloops, he said, bubble soccer has momentum, with a couple of events booked into October. “Everybody wants to get into the bubble and try it,” Lavin said. When asked if the game will stick around, he said it’s hard to say but he is going to see it through, with a little fun — the reason he got into the business in the first place. “I think I can turn this into a bubble soccer empire,” Lavin said with a laugh. For more information, contact Lavin by calling 1-604-3533404, emailing bcbubblesoccer@gmail.com

or going online to bcbubblesoccer.com.

Putting the bubble in soccer

The “bubbles” differentiate bubble soccer from regular soccer. “They’re your armor and protection,” said Lavin. The giant globes, fit around each player, are made from different types of plastic, depending on the manufacturer. Temperaturecontrolled facilities are recommended because it can get warm inside. While soccer guides the play, Lavin said people get so focused on smashing each other it’s easy to lose sight of the ball. “It’s people’s inneraggression that comes out,” he said. “They truly enjoy hitting someone else.” There are other games that can be played in the bubble, too. “I make the games up to mix it up,” Lavin said. Sumo Ring involves pushing each other out of a specified area, while Last Man Standing is about bumping into each other and knocking players down, until only one remains. It all just takes a bit of creativity and Lavin has plenty of it, offering to help newbies with ideas. “A lot of kid games now can turn into adult games,” he said.

FRESH FACES REVAMP LATE NIGHT TELEVISION LINEUP

L

ate-night television has taken a turn for the awesome. Frankly, when it came to the old weeknight entertainment lineup, I found Jay Leno’s one-liners corny and Conan O’Brien’s dance moves dull. The odd newspaper headline joke merited a giggle or two but, for me, late-night-talk shows mostly meant a bunch of old guys recycling each other’s material way past their primes. In the late days of Leno, he more often looked as though he had been punched in the stomach, rather than offering up a good punchline, with an audience systematically applauding him for his every line — funny or not. I was too young for the days of late night pioneer Johnny

JESSICA WALLACE

Carson, so I figured the idea of it all was just lost to me or crusty in general. I mean, could we mix in a female host — how about Tina Fey or Ellen DeGeneres? — or something? I had written off the late-night lineup completely until shown a Jimmy Kimmel video on YouTube called I told my kids I ate all their Halloween candy. The premise is as the title suggests: Parents filming their kids’ reactions after telling them they’d

eaten all of their Halloween candy. You can imagine their reactions. “Dad, you’re ugly.” “Now you’ll probably get a belly ache. That’s why you shouldn’t eat so much candy.” “You sneeeeeaky mom!” The video, uploaded on Nov. 2, 2011 — go watch it for a laugh if you’ve never seen it — has since attracted more than 54-million views. It’s hilarious and adorable — the right amount of weeknight brain relief for the couch — but, what piqued my interest was the host’s ability to engage his audience through a YouTube challenge. The man-on-stage and clap-when-you’retold days were seemingly numbered and it gave a fresh take on the old song and dance that was late-night television routine.

LEARN THE SIGNS OF STROKE

Jimmy Fallon has engaged the online world, too. Tonight Show hashtags are often among the top trending on social media and it didn’t take long for the former Saturday Night Live star to find comfort in his time slot, mixing things up with games like beer pong and segments like lip-sync battles. Stars like Justin Timberlake have run with Fallon’s spunk. The latest instalment of Fallon and

Timberlake’s popular History of Rap skit aired just last week and it’s part of what makes watching Fallon’s show fun. What’s he going to do? With whom? I don’t remember ever saying that about Leno. Then there’s Stephen Colbert, who started in David Letterman’s place just last week. Colbert became known for arrogant right-wing satire through work on the

Daily Show with Jon Stewart and, later, with his own spinoff show, the Colbert Report. When it was announced he would take over for Letterman, Colbert said he would kick the Comedy Central persona he had become known for, leaving questions about his voice and new show. But, in the early episodes, it’s clear his charm is still there. It’s Colbert, but on prime time. It’s still early to say

how the show will shape up but, with names like Kimmel, Fallon and Colbert lined up consecutively on my television guide, it’s the first time I’m looking forward to latenight talk shows. Maybe it’s because I can still appreciate a good game of beer pong every once in a while. Whatever the case, I’ll tune in until the fresh new hosts appear to be stuck on stage — or on YouTube — past their primes.

The city says recent road work in Barnhartvale was a “basic skin coat.” DAVE EAGLES PHOTO

Q: Why was recent Barnhartvale Road repaving so bad? A: Glen Farrow, the city’s streets and environmental services manager, told KTW the city has received complaints about recent repaving of Barnhartvale Road, but it all comes down to money. A full resurfacing project for the upper portion of the road — from the store up — is in the works for 2017, but recent road work was just part of regular maintenance, Farrow said. That costs between $30,000 and $40,000, he said, compared to millions. “It’s all about dollars and cents,” he said. “The money just isn’t there right now.” Farrow said the asphalt will blend

in over time and the centreline, which was covered during paving, will be fixed soon. “We do have a fall painting program so we will be touching up some of the lines,” he said. He also noted the old road comes with rural standards and that there are worse

roads in the city. Future priorities include work on Pacific Way, Valleyview Drive, Fortune Drive, Tranquille Road, Richmond Avenue and others. “We’re working in Rayleigh pretty soon, as well,” Farrow said. “We haven’t been there in almost 20 years.”

LOCAL VIEWS

Canada does have a role in conflict mitigation IVAN G. SOMLAI

STAFF REPORTER

editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

C

anada has a positive role to play in proactive conflict mitigation, having had an admirable reputation for respecting divergent sociopolitical systems, even with several â&#x20AC;&#x153;pariahâ&#x20AC;? states. For example: â&#x20AC;˘ Since 1945, Canada retained uninterrupted diplomatic relations with Cuba and embarked on trade, industrial joint ventures and tourism. Such opportunities for dialogue have undoubtedly contributed to military sanity in the region, despite American sanctions. â&#x20AC;˘ Canada continued ties with Sandinista Nicaragua (1979 to 1990) and helped support multisectoral social-development assistance in the face of a foreign funded insurrection and considerable pressures to pursue a different course. Meanwhile, Canadian diplomats thought our powerful neighbour was paranoid about the likelihood of Nicaragua actually posing a physical threat. â&#x20AC;˘ Since 2001, our embassy in Libya promoted joint ventures focused on trade,

mining and manufacturing. Suspension of ties in 2011 was followed by support of the rebels, leading to a critical situation wherein our ability for dialogue with the weakening government and mediation with insurgents was further compromised. This led to an adversely affected analytical ability and a chronic dependence on insight from onthe-ground nationals of other countries. Instabilities within tribal and ethnic groups have since worsened. â&#x20AC;˘ Diplomatic ties with North Korea since 2001 were suspended in 2010. In 2002, CIDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Industrial Cooperation Branch clearly indicated there could be modest funding of relevant projects to advance mutual understanding and allow increased in-country involvement to gain opportunities for broadened interaction and development. However, while CIDA encouraged expenditures for due diligence and project preparation, it crumbled under external pressure, reneging on commitments to North Korea. Thus, an effort intended to advance relations through dialogue and amicable interactions â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

that might in time lead to decreasing tensions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could not proceed beyond rhetoric. â&#x20AC;˘ Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with Iran has not been smooth but, by pulling out, especially in a belligerent manner as Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird did, removed us from any meaningful opportunity for dialogue. I have been to most of the above states and sensed the social dynamics between their representatives and Canada. Our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flexibility in dealing with divergent political systems gave them confidence of our acceptability as partners in developing improved communication with and among reluctant parties, hence reducing sustained tensions. Canada has, since the 1956 Suez crisis, preferred diplomacy to confrontation, realizing that dialogue with aggressors could lead to better humanitarian results than sustaining accusatory aversion. Yet, by continuing to send mixed messages via continuing arms trade and by sometimes confrontational, rather than preventive diplomacy, Canada has squandered opportunities for facilitating harmony.

Neither the UN nor enough countries contribute sufficient knowledgeable staff nor altruistic intent to make a difference. Canada can reclaim an important place in peacemaking by recognizing that, in an era of intractable conflicts and suffering, some of our historical practices should be rekindled. For this, Canada needs a systematic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not cosmetic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; reengagement in peacemaking facilitation, including encompassing policy-level clarity on our foreignengagement intentions and careful recruitment, orientation and selection of our representatives. Canada cannot provide a panacea for all conflicts. Our contribution to optimal conflict mitigation can be the process rather than the actual outcome; that is, improved approaches to conflict, trust, relationship building and stakeholder participation. The foibles of following U.S. adventurism, spending inordinate funds on wasted efforts in Afghanistan (with input by our present citizenship and immigration minister), further killing in Iraq and Syria (only to neglect domestic needs for First Nations, education, health care, seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

care, and the homeless) is senseless. And, now, our inability to understand the causes of a pressing humanitarian issue within an incoherent bureaucratized system in the hands of political appointees with little, if any, field experience, diminishes Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honour and underplays its potential contribution for those seeking refuge. We must never take for granted our abilities as effective interlocutors without a well-considered, ably planned, proficiently coordinated system that listens to knowledgeable stakeholders. Unfortunately, our government listens neither to domestic experts nor to overseas, in-country specialists. For the life of me, I do not understand how we sustain a government that operates without ethics or proper planning and which undermines the able civil servants who do exist, but whose voices are stifled. Ivan G. Somlai of Kamloops is a director with Global Collaboration, through which he pursues international development consulting.

Healthy schools build healthy children WITH GOOD FOUNDATION, KIDS CAN ‘FLOURISH’

VALERIE PITMAN

SPECIAL TO KTW

A

ny gardener will tell you watching plants flourish through the summer is a rewarding experience and gives a

great sense of accomplishment. Healthy plants require a good foundation, strong roots and regular tending. Children are similar. To flourish, they need healthy environments, strong connections to

family and adults in their lives who show they care. Classrooms and school grounds, where students spend at least 25 hours a week, are a great environment for nourishing children. Along with learning

the basics like reading and mathematics, schools provide lessons about respecting differences in others, acting in a responsible and caring way and teaching strategies to help children thrive in our ever-changing world.

Schools promoting a sense of belonging see both positive academic and healthrelated outcomes. The good news is the majority of B.C. students are happy to be at school and feel safe there. According to the B.C. Adolescent Health Survey, students who reported feeling connected at school are more likely to describe their mental health as good or excellent and are more likely to see themselves continuing their education beyond high school. Students who had an adult they trusted in their family when faced with a serious problem are also more likely to describe their mental health as good or excellent and are

more likely to have post-secondary education plans. Approachable adults contribute to a healthy environment. Healthy Schools B.C. encourages schools to use a multipronged approach to create a healthy school environment. These include: creating school environments that are safe and caring, teaching and learning that encourages information seeking and problem solving, creating and enforcing school policies that encourage appropriate behavior and connecting with community. Supportive school environments encourage youth to stay in school, graduate from high school and give

them a better chance at post-secondary education. Healthy schools are like a nutrient-rich garden for growing healthy children. With a good foundation, strong roots and regular tending, kids can flourish. To learn more about Healthy Schools B.C., go online to healthyschoolsbc.ca. For more information on the B.C. Adolescent Health Survey, go online to mcs.bc.ca/pdf/From_ Hastings_Street_To_ Haida_Gwaii.pdf. Valerie Pitman is a healthy schools regional knowledge co-ordinator with Interior Health Authority.

Funding for TRU Thompson Rivers University is getting $265,000 from the provincial government to support aboriginal students. The money, said Paul Michel, the university’s executive director of aboriginal education, will go toward about 20 activities and events at TRU’s campuses in Williams Lake and Kamloops. Among the events planned are visits to the two sites by aboriginal high school students in districts 73 and 74, transitions and life skills planning sessions, tutoring, leadership, mentoring and engaging the surrounding communities. Some of it will also go toward research into ways to keep students attending school at the post-secondary level, Michel said. Many of these services already exist; the funding will be used to enhance and expand them. The university has a mentor program, for example, to help new students transition into university life. The Gathering Place, a centre that provides

information on a variety of subjects as well as offering a place for socializing, taking workshops on study skills and wellness and for computer and school work assistance. Michel said the aboriginal community at TRU has grown, numbering about 2,000, with about 1,200 students on the two campuses. The rest are studying through the university’s open-learning program. He’s also hoping to organize a symposium on aboriginal intellectual cultural property — reclaiming aboriginal stories and languages and retelling them in their own voices — for sometime this school year. The money is part of $3.7 million being distributed to 11 post-secondary institutions in the province from the ministry of advanced education. Vancouver Island University is receiving the largest amount at $571,014, while the University of Northern B.C. receives the smallest at $200,000.

City of Kamloops

BUSINESS

Minimum wage rose again this week

7th Annual

CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 10 AM - 2 PM

Hundreds of workers in the city will get a two per cent wage increase this week, amounting to 20 cents an hour, ending a three-year freeze imposed by the B.C. Liberal government. The province’s minimum wage will increase to $10.45 an hour. Kamloops Chamber of Commerce president Steve Earle said most of those workers will be in the fast-food industry, many of whom are in high school or university. “It tends to be a part-time industry with young people, introductory jobs in the workforce,” he said. That increase will end up reflected at the till in higher costs, Earle argued. Barb Nederpel, president of Kamloops & District Labour Council, called the

increase inadequate. Even with the increase, it remains among the lowest minimum wages in Canada. The highest is $11 per hour in Ontario and Nunavut. “People working part-time are being grossly underpaid,” she said. “The problem is, when you’re sitting in the gutter, it’s just not going to cut it.” According to a Statistics Canada survey, minimum wage is typically earned by young people, women and workers with a low level of education. Next month, Alberta’s minimum wage will jump a dollar to $11.20. Alberta’s NDP government has pledged to increase it in stages to $15 an hour by 2018. The B.C. Federation of Labour is calling for a similar level in this province. “You look at what’s happening in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles: They’re moving to $15 an hour,” Nederpel said.

“They’re not seeing the sky falling — they’re seeing economic spin-offs.” Nederpel argues even $15 is too low when looking at the so-called living wage for Kamloops, calculated at $18.81 an hour by Living Wage for Families, a coalition of social groups. That amount is based on two parents, with two children at home, each making that amount, along with receiving government transfers. “The increase [to minimum wage] should lift you out of poverty, not keep you in it,” she said. Earle said this week’s increase will put pressure on employers with workers earning slightly higher than minimum to keep up. But, he sees little threat of $15 in this province. “I think the provincial government’s taken the responsible line and said this [increases at rate of inflation] is what’s manageable for our economy to bear.”

City’s purchase of Owl Road Dump nearly complete

www.kamloops.ca/worldriversday

The City of Kamloops is a step closer to owning the Owl Road Dump. An alternative-approval process, which would allow the city to spend $10 million acquiring the site, ended with only one resident formally opposed to the purchase. At least 10 per cent of regis-

tered electors, or 6,975 people, must file their objection with the city in order to halt the process. The dump, which was the site of a toxic 2007 fire that took firefighters 24 hours to wrangle get under control, will become a resource-recovery centre under the city’s watch.

Construction materials will be diverted to the site from the Mission Flats landfill and the size of the existing Owl Road facility will be reduced by about 40 per cent. • A date is set for Kamloops’ first budget meetings of 2016. The city will host a pair of

public-input sessions on the South and North Shores on Wednesday, Nov. 18. An afternoon session at Sandman Centre will run from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. That evening, the city will take comments from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre Lounge.

TOBIANO AT SUNSET: Real estate, golf and marina business is looking up just 15 minutes west of Kamloops.

Plans falling into place at Tobiano feet on a 14,000-square-foot fully landscaped lot. The show home is on the market for $779,900. The showpiece of Tobiano has long been the world-renowned golf course — and its fairways are getting plenty of play. Golf rounds in 2015 are up 71 per cent over 2014, while the number of memberships have more than doubled from last year. And, Tobiano has added to its trophy case of honours, ranking eighth in Canadian Golf Magazine’s 2015 Top 100 Golf Courses in Canada and placing 25th in Golf Digest’s 2015-2016 Best Courses in Canada. Down at the shoreline of Kamloops Lake, Bruker Marina is in its second year of business and has seen full-time occupancy increase by 200 per cent in 2015. The marina has 110 boat slips, 73 of which are occupied, said Bruker gen-

eral manager Kayla Matusiak, noting the rental fleet now includes ski boats, seadoos, paddle boards, kayaks and a double-decker pontoon party barge. Bruker has also been nominated for two Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards — Service Provider of the Year and Tourism Operator of the Year. Future development plans include an additional 100 boat slips and the expansion of storage facility grounds as demand increases. The marina is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is closed for the winter as of Oct. 1.

Golf rounds and memberships are up, real-estate lots are selling and marina occupancy is rising. Following a challenging few years, the three business ventures at Tobiano are bouncing back. Mary Putnam, director of marketing for Tobiano Real Estate, said 12 of 16 lots on offer have either been sold or have sales pending, with interest coming from Kamloops and beyond — well beyond. In August, Tobiano hosted a large group of Vancouver-based investors and licensed real estate agents for a day-tour showcasing the community and amenities. Interest has come from mainland China, South Korea, United States, Alberta, northern B.C., the Lower Mainland and the Okanagan. Anchoring tours of Tobiano is a brand new show home.

TRAVEL WRITERS’ TALES

I can’t!” I wail, looking at the camel kneeling on the sand, “I can’t climb onto it!” The camel, eyes hooded and disdainful, turns its head to look at me. We are in Khuri, Rajasthan, 41 miles out of the city of Jaisalmer, and heading into the Thar Desert, to view the sunset — reputedly a dramatic sight as it sinks into the rolling sand dunes. The camel driver, an ancient twig of a man with an enormous turban, is nonplussed for a second; then he brightens. “Okay, I get cart for you,” he said. The cart and camel are hitched up and I’m helped onto the wooden contraption by the driver’s teenage grandson, his eyes dancing with

suppressed amusement. The camel driver urges his beast into movement. It farts in protest, disgorges a copious amount of feces, snorts, belches and finally begins to move. Dee, my Australian companion, already aloft her camel, is convulsed with mirth. And so, we set off — me unceremoniously bumping along on the cart and Dee astride a loping camel. We proceed at a majestic pace and all seems well, until we are faced with a long climb up the first of the dunes. My camel balks. It bawls mightily and, despite the driver’s pleas interspersed with curses, it refuses to budge. Arthritic knees or not, I decide to walk the rest of the way. Walking uphill in the sand is a slog but, as we crest the top of the highest dune, the land falls away and the desert stretches to the horizon in waves of

light and shadow. Other than a group of ant-like figures in the distance, we are alone in the vast, silent sweep of the Thar. The sun is low in the sky and Dee and I pour ourselves a libation of rum and Coke from a flask, to toast the dying day. The light is coppercoloured and the orange sun, magnified into an enormous ball, sinks to the horizon. Once gone, the sky turns flamingo pink with small floating puffs of goldrimmed clouds and the brief tropical twilight fades quickly into dusk. Back at the village, we are guests at a traditional Rajasthani dinner of rotis, rice and a variety of curried vegetables and lentils. Along with a group of visitors, we dine under a sky thick with stars. Musicians squat on the ground and sing plaintive melodies to the accompaniment of a harmonium

and women with black, bold eyes and swirling skirts sequined with mirrors, dance to the rhythm of a tabla. The cool night air smells of spices and dust. Magical. Jaisalmer is India’s only living fort and its history goes back to medieval times, when it was founded by the Bhattis — a tribal people — in the 12th century. Lying at the crossroads of Asia’s trade caravans, it teemed with merchants, adventurers, bandits and pilgrims. Today, the walled old fort-city still teems, its narrow, winding streets seething with the rush and clatter of scooters and motorbikes, meandering cows, goats, vendors, shoppers, pedestrians and tourists. I pick my way between refuse heaps and cow dung patties and breathe in the heavy aromas of cooking spices, mingled with gasoline fumes and animal

urine — all of which may sound repellent, but aren’t. Graceful women dressed in saris of peacock blue, emerald green and bubblegum pink, flit from shop to shop like brightly coloured butterflies. Magnificent havelis (mansions) line the lanes, their sandstone facades boasting elaborately carved “jali” (net-like) screens, fretwork balconies and arches, domes and cupolas. “Rajasthan” means “Land of Princes” and it abounds in tales of romance, chivalry, heroism and tragedy. I listen to tales of lost loves, pride and valour, death and glory. One of the massive entrance gates to the fort bears the handprints of women who committed jauhar or ritual suicide following their menfolks’ defeat on the battlefield. Dee and I drive out into the countryside. Low, round mud-sculpted houses with thatched

roofs dot the fields and kejri thorn fences demarcate property lines. Women herd goats and sheep across land that has a thin film of grass like a worn billiard table. Desert hawks swoop and circle against a cloudless afternoon sky. Later, from a hilly viewpoint we watch the sun sink to the horizon and in its dying rays, the sandstone walls of Jaisalmer’s fortress glow mellow and gold. As ethereal as a fairytale castle, it floats — a desert mirage and place of dreams and fantasy. And home to today’s descendents of ancient and noble Rajput clans.

A Step in the Right Direction Could Save a Life

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Limited Compliance Actions Highlight Commitment to Professionalism The Vehicle Sales Authority (VSA) oversees the licensed motor dealer industry in British Columbia. The industry represents 430,000 transactions, or $10 billion in regulated vehicle sales, each year. Despite more than 1,300 consumer enquiries, nearly 800 dealer inspections and ongoing advertising monitoring, a typical 12 month period generates the following compliance activities: ❚ Voluntary acknowledgement and action by 15 to 20 dealers that errors were made during the representation and sale of vehicles, as documented in signed undertakings ❚ Up to five dealers facing hearings before the Registrar of Motor Dealers for allegations of deceptive business practices ❚ 500 consumer-initiated investigations, resulting in the return of $1 million to consumers ❚ And, as a result of licensing

reviews, three to five salesperson licences will be denied, one or two will be suspended and others will be issued with conditions based on prior conduct. Licensing and business practice decisions of the Registrar were also recently upheld by the BC Supreme Court, following applications for judicial review. The licensed vehicle sales industry in BC includes over 1,400 licensed RV, motorcycle and auto dealers that employ over 7,000 licensed salespeople. In the last 12 months, 1,600 new salespeople and 100 new dealers were certified and licensed. Consumer awareness activities, like the Watch out for Walt! campaign, are ongoing. Consumer information, complete compliance details and the 2015 VSA Annual Report, which includes a full summary of VSA activities for the last three years, can be found at vehiclesalesauthority.com.

CURBERS SELL VEHICLES THAT MAY BE UNSAFE OR STOLEN! Curbers are individuals and businesses selling vehicles for profit without a licence Curbers may get junk cars and sell them from parking lots while posing as private sellers. They advertise through local newspapers and online ads. They may not disclose the vehicle history to the buyer, hiding serious accident

damage or even a rolled back odometer. Licensed dealers are required by law to sell safe, lien-free vehicles and disclose vehicle histories. If you buy from Walt, you have none of the protections of buying from a licensed dealer.

NATIONAL FOREST WEEK FORESTRY INNOVATION INVESTMENT

Celebrating our forests

A

ll of Canada is invited to participate in this year’s National Forest Week from Sept. 20 to Sept. 26. This year’s theme, Wildland Fire, brings awareness fire as a powerful natural force. Fire has shaped Canada’s forests, prairies and parklands for countless generations and brings healthy renewal to diverse ecosystems. But, some fires can have a devastating impact on public safety and property. Use FireSmart principles to help protect your family and

property from wildfire damage: play a role in control. Established in 1920 as Forest Fire Prevention Week, the intention of National Forest Week was to encourage greater public awareness toward Canada’s forests. At the time, there was no apparent shortage of trees for industrial expansion — the greatest threat came from forest fires, due mainly to human causes. Since then, National Forest Week, as it was renamed in 1967, has evolved to encompass the many and varied human and environmental aspects of Canada’s forest resources

— past, present and future. Although special activities are promoted across Canada, National Forest Week remains first and foremost a challenge to individual Canadians to learn more about their forest heritage and support greater recognition of this valuable resource. National Tree Day, which takes place during National Forest Week on Wednesday, Sept. 23, will serve as a celebration for all Canadians to appreciate the benefits trees provide us — clean air, wildlife habitat, reducing energy demand and connecting with nature. Go online to national-

treeday.ca for more information. National Forest Week is an initiative of the Canadian Institute of Forestry and the Canadian Forestry Association. The B.C. Provincial Coalition is a group of companies and associations within the B.C. forestry industry that present National Forest Week programing in B.C. It was established in 2013 with the overarching goal of showing young people they can enjoy time spent outdoors and learn more about the different uses of B.C.’s forests including wood products, jobs, recreation and

spiritual values. For more information about National Forest Week in B.C., go online to abcfp.ca.

NATIONAL FOREST WEEK

Size of open fires remain restricted until Oct. 15 The open burning prohibition restricting the size of open fires will remain in place until Oct. 15 in the Kamloops, Vernon, Penticton, Merritt and Lillooet fire zones. The ban has been in place since May. A map of the affected areas is available online at bcwildfire.ca. The open fire prohibition applies to: • The burning of any waste, slash or other materials; • The burning of stubble or grass; • The use of fireworks, sky lanterns or burning barrels of any size or description. This prohibition does not ban campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide (or smaller) and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. The prohibition covers all B.C. parks, Crown lands

and private lands, but it does not apply within the boundaries of a local government that has forest fire prevention bylaws in place and is serviced by a fire department. Before lighting any fire, residents should check with local civic authorities regarding any other restrictions. The Kamloops Fire Centre stretches from the northern border of Wells Gray Provincial Park to the U.S. border in the south, and from the Bridge River Glacier west of Gold Bridge to the Monashee Mountains east of Lumby. For information about open burning and tips on making responsible burning decisions, please download an open burning guide from bcwildfire. ca. Anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a ticket for $345,

required to pay an administrative penalty of $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/ or sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs. To report a wildfire, unattended campfire or open burning violation, call 1-800-663-5555 tollfree or *5555 on your cellphone. For the latest information on fire activity, conditions and prohibitions, go online to the BC Wildfire Service website: bcwildfire.ca You can follow the latest B.C. wildfire news: • On Twitter: twitter.com/ BCGovFireInfo • On Facebook: facebook.com/ BCForestFireInfo

Campfire ban no longer in effect After two months of restrictions, the campfire ban in the Kamloops Fire Centre was lifted on Aug. 31. It was rescinded due to recent widespread precipitation, which resulted in a decreased risk of wildfires in the region. The fire danger rating is now primarily “low” to “moderate” throughout the fire centre. The campfire ban was enacted on July 3, two weeks earlier than last’s year’s prohibition, which went into effect on July 16. Last year, the campfire ban was lifted on Aug. 21. Those enjoying campfires are reminded to follow the following safety procedures: • Have a shovel or at least eight litres of water available nearby to properly extinguish your campfire. • Campfires cannot be larger than 0.5 metres high by 0.5 metres wide.

• Do not light a campfire or keep it burning in windy conditions. Weather can change quickly and wind may carry embers to other combustible material. • You must maintain a one-metre fireguard around the campfire. This is a fuelfree area where all flammable materials (grass, kindling, etc.) have been removed. • Never leave a campfire unattended. • Make sure campfires are completely extinguished and ashes are cold to the touch before leaving the area for any length of time. • People who light campfires are legally responsible for making sure they don’t escape. They may be held accountable for damages and fire suppression costs if negligence results in a wildfire.

he B.C. government and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities are providing new grants totalling $500,000 to help communities identify and take action to reduce wildfire risks on private land. Fifty grants of up to $10,000 each will be made available to local governments and First Nations through the Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative (SWPI). The 2016 SWPI FireSmart Grant program will support communities to plan for wildfire prevention activities on private lands, as identified through the FireSmart Communities Program. “Homeowners who live in interface areas can help protect their properties from wildfires by using FireSmart principles,” said Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations “This new grant program will help communities and First Nations raise awareness of this important work

and become recognized as FireSmart Communities.” FireSmart activities help decrease wildfire threats to homes and property and can prevent damage to structures, increase the effectiveness of firefighters and safeguard fire-suppression resources. Funding provided through the 2016 SWPI FireSmart Grant program may be used to: • Enhance public awareness of FireSmart principles. • Increase community participation in FireSmart activities. • Advance planning to address wildfire mitigation on private land. • Help communities obtain official recognition as “FireSmart Communities.” FireSmart recognition involves engaging neighbours, property owners, local government and First Nations authorities and other agencies to meet a set of recognition criteria to assist communities become more resilient to wildfire.

Wildfire facts

Since 2004, over $68

million has been directed through the Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative to help local governments and First Nations significantly reduce wildfire risks around their communities. As of Sept. 1, 286 Community Wildfire Protection Plans have been completed by local governments and First Nations and another 44 are in progress. Completed fuel treatments and risk reduction efforts covered 78,245 hectares in and around communities that face a significant wildfire risk.

Homeowners who live in interface areas can help protect their properties from wildfire risks by using FireSmart principles. More information is available online at firesmartcanada.ca. The Homeowner’s FireSmart Manual was developed to help reduce the risk of personal property damage due to wildfires. Copies are available online at bcwildfire.ca.

Forestry in Kamloops: An industry snapshot How Kamloops contributes to production of forest products

V

enture Kamloops outlines the role Kamloops plays in the forestry industry. Find out more at venturekamloops.com. B.C. is the largest producer of forest products in Canada, with Kamloops contributing significantly to production. As a provincially recognized forest centre, Kamloops and the Central Interior of B.C. account for the second highest concentration of value-added plants in the province. The number of valueadded wood products manufactured in Kamloops continues to grow and ranges from plywood, veneer products and finger jointed lamina to prefabricated housing units and custom kitchen cabinets. Many companies, agencies, and services related to the forest industry are headquartered in Kamloops including

Domtar, Tolko Industries, FORREX and Compwood Products.

Competitive advantages

• Kamloops’ Location: One of Kamloops’ advantages is its geographic location in the province. As a transportation hub with trucking, rail and air cargo access, the ability to move products from Kamloops to other locations in a cost-efficient method is ideal. • Strong infrastructure: Kamloops has over 2,200 acres of affordable land zoned for industrial use, much of which is vacant. There are eight industrial parks, some with both rail and highway access and the city enjoys a reliable supply of affordable power and telecommunications. • Local resources and support: There are more than 125 fabrication and manufacturing companies

operating in the city and businesses enjoy extensive research and development support by the Interior Science and Innovation Council, FORREX, Nexterra and Thompson Rivers University. In terms of raw materials, wood species, lumber grades, fibre supply and wood waste are available at competitive prices. • Experienced industry professionals: The value-added wood industry in the Kamloops Forest District has a number of strengths, which positions it well to compete in the North American home building market. This includes knowledgeable and experienced professionals who know the inner workings of the industry, have export market experience, and have strong interests in developing partnerships. • Skilled and educated labour force: The city enjoys a diverse pool of trades, forestry specialists, contract

loggers, truckers and silviculture workers. Additionally, Kamloops is home to Thompson Rivers University. With over 1,200 graduates annually from a wide variety of diploma, undergraduate and graduate programs, TRU works closely with community and industry organizations, and all levels of government. Since 1996, TRU faculty and students have worked with over 200 manufacturing and technology businesses to develop and implement commercial applications of new and existing technologies and innovations. Projects including consulting for wood products and other manufacturing companies, equipment automation projects for industry, technology commercialization, business start-up and marketing advice, and applied research and development to regional and provincial businesses and industries.

NATIONAL FOREST WEEK

Get involved with your forest’s management MIKE LAROCK MEGAN HANACEK

I

t is hard to imagine the moniker Super Natural British Columbia holding up if our province didn’t have such vast forests. Almost 60 per cent of the land base in B.C. is forested and 94 per cent of the land is publicly owned. The fact that the majority of land is owned by the public makes B.C. unique in the world. Because the public is the primary landowner in the province, you have a responsibility to understand how that land is being managed and to speak up if you have concerns. The good news is that you are not alone. BC Forest professionals are located in every corner of the province;

more than 5,300 registered forest professionals reside in communities from Fort Nelson to Port Hardy to Fernie. Our forest professionals have training and education to help them ‘see the forest for the trees’ and even then, it’s not only about the trees but all the associated values that contribute to healthy ecosystems and healthy communities. These values include recreation opportunities, jobs, clean air and water, spiritual values and much more. Forest professionals are relied upon to hold together this rich tapestry of values in tandem with multiple other land users such as the public, tourism operators, ranchers, trappers, miners, and oil and gas extractors. One doesn’t have to

be an expert to take an active interest in how B.C.’s forests are managed. We urge the public to learn more about the management of our forests. B.C.’s forests serve as the backbone of the provincial economy by providing rural community stability and filling the coffers for socially supported medical services, public education and highway improvements. Sustainable decisions made in our rural and urban forests directly affect the high quality of life that citizens of British Columbia enjoy. If you’re wondering how the forest management framework works, you are not alone. Here’s a fourstep primer: • Step one: The objectives for the land are set by government. • Step two: The

forest companies (or other license holders) propose results or strategies to achieve the objectives. • Step three: The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations have a decision-maker who approves (or not) those results or strategies. • Step four: If approved, the forest companies decide on a method to accomplish the result. Forest professionals help the government and the forest companies work within this four-step process. There are many other situations, rules, rights to follow and many different variables in the forest to consider — such as maintaining archaeological sites, water quality and protecting wildlife/fisheries habitat. The role of the forest professional is to

plan and prescribe the path to achieve these objectives. These forest management decisions are made with input from other natural resource professionals and in consultation with stakeholders and First Nations. In some cases, a tremendous amount of planning will be ‘on the books’ for several years while crucial professional assessments on terrain, wildlife, fisheries, visuals and timber value are conducted in conjunction with public consultation meetings. Additionally, the increase in land users which are governed by other regulations, increasing access opportunities, and changing forests all add up to a greater requirement for public engagement. Here’s how you can learn more about the

use and management of our forests: If you want to understand the complexity of the forest ecology, or management of forests for uses like recreation, then ask a forest professional. Chances are, one of our members is living in your community. Similarly, question published articles on issues which may overlap forestry management if a forest professional has not been consulted to provide information. Seek out a forest professional to discuss any unanswered questions you may have. If you want to influence the goals and objectives of government, then communicate with your elected officials. As a part owner in this fabulous natural resource, it is best to be informed. And

when you begin to learn a little about the forest resource you will find that forest professionals have been there all along. You will see first-hand that forest professionals operate with factual information and research and with knowledge of forest uses. It’s your job to decide what the public wants from its forests. If you want to know how to achieve what you want, well that is our job. Talk to your forest professional and get involved.

Mike Larock is a registered professional forester and director of professional practice and forest stewardship with the Association of BC Forest Professionals. Megan Hanacek is a registered professional forester and forest stewardship specialist.

NATIONAL FOREST WEEK Humming Bird drones provides lowlevel infrared scanning and mapping for emergency responders .

Using drones to suppress wildfires

T

his past summer, Hummingbird Drones (Hummingbird) became the first unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) service provider in North America to be engaged in wildfire suppression activity. What began as a conversation between two firefighters on their way back from a forest-fire deployment took shape over the following year at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) and culminated in a fast-growing tech company. Our accomplishments can be attributed to support from within the community of Kamloops. The Kamloops Innovation Centre and The Generator at TRU gave us the tools

and training required for our start-up. Bruce Morrow Forest Consulting provided us with limitless business mentorship and guidance. Bruce continues to provide us with valuable input as our company grows. We could not have achieved what we did without him. We were also privileged to work alongside the remarkable individuals at the BC Wildfire Service who work tirelessly at fostering an environment of early technological innovation and adoption. Hummingbird provides low-level infrared scanning and mapping for wildfire agencies, emergency responders and environmental industries. With a full suite of service offerings

Forest week art contest The Association of BC Forest Professionals and the Truck Loggers Association are holding an art competition to celebrate National Forest Week. Kids from across the province are invited to draw a picture of what the forests in their communities mean to them. There will be three winners, one from each age group. Winners will receive a $50 gift certificate to Chapters and will have their pictures published in the ABCFP and TLA magazines

and posted on the websites of both organizations. The deadline to submit art is Oct. 19. The art competition is open to kids aged four to 12. Parents can submit their own kids’ artwork or teachers can enter the work of the whole classroom. Teachers are encouraged to incorporate the contest into an art or forestry class. Visit the ABCFP or the TLA websites to download the art competition entry form, abcfp.ca or tla.ca.

including GIS, volumetric measurements and infrared analysis Hummingbird provides unrivaled up-to-date aerial and mapping solutions. In the application of this emerging technology Hummingbird provides the professionalism and experience required to safely and effectively integrate drone technology into worksites. As we shift gears into autumn and leave a busy fire season in the rear-view, we look forward to what lies ahead. While we are as focused as ever on delivering cutting edge technology to the BC Wildfire Service and other wildfire agencies across the world, so too are we excited about the applications for these tools within B.C.’s

diverse environmental industry. Maximizing the utility of UAVs requires significantly more than just having a drone. If you are interested in finding out how Hummingbird can help your organization, give us a call. We offer presentations at no charge and would love the opportunity to share the potential of our technology. As our company develops, we are excited about making our home here in British Columbia’s interior. While our vision for the company is international, our roots will always be in Kamloops and innovation will always be at the core of who we are. — Robert Atwood, co-founder and president of Hummingbird Drones.

Urban forestry: Keeping our city green with life Urban forestry is growing in municipalities. Kamloops is developing an urban forestry plan to manage urban forests in a sustainable state and maintains the regions original forest legacy. Urban forestry is the sustained planning, planting, protection, maintenance and care of trees, forests, green spaces in and around cities and communities for the economic, environmental, social and public health benefits of people. Trees help clean our air, and reduce the pollutants that trigger asthma attacks and exacerbate other respiratory diseases. They cool our streets, sidewalks, and homes on hot summer days. Trees increase property value, and encourage neighbourhood revitalization. And trees make our City an even more beautiful and comfortable place to live, work, and visit. Get involved in tree planting

programs around Kamloops. Find out more at kamloops. bc.ca

Operation Re-Leaf

The number of trees in the urban forest in Kamloops is below average when compared with other cities. The devastation wreaked by the pine beetle has further decimated our urban forest. The our goal is to plant 20,000 trees over the next four years. The city wants to achieve the many quality-of-life benefits that come with planting trees. No matter how you participate, you will be planting a legacy when you plant a tree. Here’s what you can do: 1. Participate in one of our Tree Planting Programs 2. Make a Record of your Tree Planting

Boulevard Tree Planting Program This program allows

neighbourhoods to apply for trees to be planted on their street if homeowners agree to be responisble for irrigating them.

Kamloops Community Forest

This is a Communities in Bloom Legacy Project where people can plant a tree in the Kamloops Community Forest in memoriam for a person or cherished event.

Aspen Tree Replanting Program

The city will provide aspen trees to qualified homeowners if they agree to irrigate and care for trees to restore visual screening where trees were lost to pine beetle infestation. The city also provides tree coupons in partnership with participating nurseries, but they are available on a first-come firstserve basis and are sold out. — kamloops.ca
