Training peacekeepers in the Kootenays CHELSEA NOVAK West Kootenay Advertiser

Selkirk College is launching a new program this January that will train students from all over the world to keep the peace. The Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping Program will launch on January 16, 2016, and is a four-month online course ending with a bootcamp at the Selkirk campus from April 18 to 29. Randy Janzen, instructor of peace studies at Selkirk and chair of the Mir Centre for Peace, will be one of the program’s instructors. “The program is to train people who have an interest working anywhere in the world ... to become skilled to reduce violence in volatile situations,” explains Janzen. “We usually think of peacekeepers as a military operation, and many of those have been very successful, but this is a civilian or non-military intervention, and ... some researchers show that in fact this is just as effective, and it’s way cheaper, and it’s actually safer than military peacekeeping.”

The Selkirk program is the first of its kind to be offered in a postsecondary institution. It’s being offered in collaboration with an NGO called Nonviolent Peaceforce, which is an unarmed, paid civilian peacekeeping force. Peacekeeping takes place not only in war zones, but also in inner cities where there is violence related to organized crime. Students who graduate from the program could find themselves working in either situation, either for an organization like Nonviolent Peaceforce or for an organization that will take them on as a volunteer and pay a stipend. “We want to attract people who already have education, like they might have a Bachelor of Arts, and they really want to do something specific,” said Janzen. “So this is a very specific training course. At the end of it you actually have a kind of credential that kind of equips you to do a very specific job.” Janzen hopes that by introducing this program, Selkirk can also help change the face of peacekeeping. “Our idea is ten years down the line that the Canadian government will be hiring

Right to left: Randy Janzen speaking at the fundraiser dinner on Saturday. Attendees at Selkirk College’s fundraiser on Saturday night helped raise close to $10,000 to support international students who would otherwise not be able to afford the college’s new Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping Program. The cutouts on the wall represent those who couldn’t be there, but still supported the cause. Photos provided by Randy Janzen.

these positions, and other types of government organizations will be hiring these positions,” he said. “That people will be hired to work right here in British Columbia in volatile situations around environmental issues, around First Nations land rights, where the last thing we want to see is where there’s a violent confrontation between one group and, let’s say, law enforcement agencies that gets out of hand.” The program is open to students from

all over the world, and they only need to be in Castlegar for two weeks during the bootcamp, where instructors, including employees from Nonviolent Peacekeeping, will teach them some conflict resolution and communication skills. To support international students who would otherwise not be able to afford the program, Selkirk hosted a fundraising event on Saturday night at the Brilliant Cultural Centre, raising close to $10,000.

Fresh from working through red tape to get the walking bridge built, the City of Trail is about to receive some serious green from the province - $800,000, in fact. All along the city has maintained building a footbridge across the Columbia River is a green project – because no cars means no additional carbon emissions from vehicles. The province agreed, and through BikeBC, the city is receiving the largest piece of the program’s $6 million funding to expand and build cycling lanes, trail and paths for cyclists and pedestrians. The $800,000 grant is described as the Trail pipe/pedestrian bridge, a 3.8 metre wide, 280-metre long multi-use bridge along the Trans Canada Trail (TCT). The money was granted for the pedestrian platform only, not for the new sewer line. The province has phenomenal cycling corridors and B.C. has to do a better job creating cycling tours, Todd Stone told the Trail Times in March. During the interview, the Transport Minister assured the Times that Trail would not be left behind in the province’s 10-year B.C. on the Move transportation plan.

Place Names

Lardo vs. Lardeau: battle of the townsites Greg nesteroff Black Press

One-hundred thirteenth in a semialphabetical series on West Kootenay/ Boundary place names While the origin of Lardo/Lardeau is shrouded in mystery, there was a battle for the right to use it between two similarly named towns: Lardo (or Lardo City) on Kootenay Lake, and Lardeau (or Lardeau City), on the northeast arm of Upper Arrow Lake. The latter was first mentioned in Revelstoke’s Kootenay Star on Aug. 13, 1892: “We hope the boys at the ‘Lardeau City’ will return the compliment we paid them on the 1st of July.” Details of the townsite survey are unknown, but the plan was apparently deposited with the land registry on Dec. 2, 1892 by William Harrington Ellis, editor and part owner of the Victoria Colonist. Ellis was also one of the principals of the Lardeau and Kootenay Railway, which wanted to build a line that would connect Lardo and Lardeau, although nothing came of it. James (Pothole) Kellie, MLA for the region, was another key Lardeau City booster. The same month, Charles W. Busk surveyed the Lardo townsite. The streets were Lardo, Duncan, Kootenay, Dawson, Kaslo, Main, and South, while the avenues were numbered 1st through 6th. (Today

Place Names

Lardo vs. Lardeau: battle of the townsites continued from page A7

Lardo’s promoters nevertheless found a way to register their townsite. Nor did the conflict deter both towns from applying for post offices, first Lardo and then Lardeau. BC postal inspector E.H. Fletcher supported the former’s application: “The population of Lardo is much larger and more important than that of Lardeau and the former being the first in the field for a post office, should I think, have the advantage of their enterprise.” However, Fletcher’s superiors

would only authorize the post office at Lardo providing the name was changed. (They were under the mistaken impression an injunction had been issued preventing use of Lardo.) Each town felt it had an exclusive right to the name and insisted it would be impossible to find an alternative. They began trading insults. An editorial in the Lardo Reporter called Lardeau “a mathematical point on the Arrow Lakes, occupying position but no space [which] has not yet fulfilled its manifest destiny by becoming a sheep ranch ...” Lardeau criticized its rival’s

geography: “Lardo claims to be entitled to the name because of its proximity to the mouth of the Lardo River. It is some 35 miles form its mouth.” It also took out ads stating “The only Lardeau! None genuine without the ‘deau’ in the name.” MP John Mara was asked to intervene but decided to sit on the fence: “I unfortunately promised to support the application for offices at both places, not knowing that the department would object on account of the similarity of names.” Lardo’s promoters suggested “Lardo, Kootenay Lake” and “Lardeau City, Arrow Lake”

would be distinctive enough, but the post office didn’t seem to agree. Postmaster-general William White finally ruled: “The question of name must be settled by the parties themselves.” With neither side willing to compromise, the matter remained unresolved. In October 1893, E.H. Fletcher’s assistant visited Kaslo and inquired about Lardo: “He ascertained that the place is now practically deserted ... There is therefore no necessity for the establishment of a post office at Lardo during the coming winter.” Next: Lardo, Idaho

News

Nelson sees dispensary boom A fourth medical marijuana dispensary is expected to open in Nelson. Cannaclinic, the Nelson Compassion Club, and Kootenays Medicine Tree are all doing business on Front St. and are set to be joined by another operation on Vernon St. Recently the city rejected a business license to Cannaclinic, instead serving it with a $100 fine. However, city council and the police

department is otherwise taking a wait-and-see approach to dispensaries pending the outcome of the federal election. “We’re in a bit of a conundrum,” said mayor Deb Kozak. “The fact is pot dispensaries are not legal and contravene our bylaws.” Jim Leslie, the director of Kootenays Medicine Tree, which also operates in Grand Forks, said he welcomes the discussion.

“It’s really important for all parts of society to understand fully the science behind the medical use of cannabis,” he said. “We need to be the shining light to guide people through these times before we get better regulation.” Local marijuana activist Herb Couch said the dispensaries are compensating for a woefully inadequate federal system, and operating in a sometimes stressful legal grey area.

Feature film coming to Castlegar Castlegar will be the home for a new feature film that starts filming this October. SHSS Alumni and class of 2001 Valedictorian, writer/director Scooter Corkle is shooting his first feature film in his hometown of Castlegar this October. “Castlegar is not only the setting of the film in written form, but also the location of the film in actual form. I wrote the script based on the area and it’s unique small town

culture because I’m interested in deeprooted secrets that fight to stay hidden in such a tight community. When they come out, they tend to be quite life changing. “Hollow in the Land is an exciting opportunity to come back home to shoot my first feature-length film,” said Corkle. Corkle has been working in the Vancouver film industry for the past 12 years, moving through the ranks of Lighting

WAB KINEW

and Camera until making the switch to screenwriting and directing. With two award-winning short films under his belt gaining international attention, Hollow in the Land will be his feature length film debut. And he’s landed a Hollywood star to lead the cast. Glee alumna Dianna Agron will play Alison in the film, a blue-collar girl who works at the local pulp mill.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

You are extra motivated to explore new opportunities this week, Aries. Bring along a trusted advisor who can steer you in the right direction if you have questions.

Libra, this week presents opportunities to help people or even animals in need. If ever there was a time to take up a cause, now is it. You have plenty of extra time to lend a hand.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 It is very important to find balance, Taurus. Many activities are coming up, and you have to figure out a way to juggle them all. This will take some creativity.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

Scorpio, you may find yourself waking up extra early just to accomplish everything you need to get done. Try not to burn the candle at both ends for too long.

Gemini, avoid overindulging this week. Even though it may seem like you can never get enough, over time something special may lose its spark. Practice moderation, instead.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Cancer, everything will work out the way it should if you keep a smile on your face this week and continue with the status quo. Soon you can shake things up.

Capricorn, things may be a little confusing of late, but you will find a clear path to get things done. Ask a friend or colleague to lend a helping hand if things get too hectic.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

Leo, you may be compelled to get more involved in your community or a volunteer project this week. A desire to give something back propels your actions.

Relationships are very important this week, Aquarius. Nurture both the personal and professional relationships that you want to grow, and you will be happy you did.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

Drive to Save Lives

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

You have a soft spot for underdogs this week, Virgo. Anyone who seems to be struggling will have your attention, and you will offer to lend a hand.

Sagittarius, you will enjoy downtime much more after you complete an important task and feel a sense of accomplishment. Rest may still be a few days away, so be patient.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, the earlier half of the week may be hectic, but things will return to an even keel as the days press on.

Kootenay Gallery opens photography exhibitions Betsy Kline West Kootenay Advertiser

The Kootenay Gallery of Art hosted an opening for two photographic exhibitions Friday evening. Fireline is an exhibition of photographs taken by front line forestry firefighters. The display features incredible photographs that reflect the level of intensity the firefighters face in their efforts to control the often powerful and unpredictable fire events. Photographer Billy Stevens and Karlie Shaughnessy, Communications Officer for the Southeast Fire Centre were on hand for the event as well as other

firefighters who came out to show their support. The second exhibit is Exchanging Views, the work of Winlaw photographers Jo Brown and Tom Bradley. Creative partners for many years, they have created a body of work independent of each other yet found that when exhibited together another dimension is added to the stories they tell. Both exhibitions will run until November 7. The Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10-5 p.m. with admission by donation. The Gallery is located across from the Castlegar Regional Airport adjacent to the Doukhobor Discovery Center on Heritage Way.

Kootenay Gallery TD Trust Sunday concert series As the fall weather returns, so begins the concert season and audience members can look forward to an exciting series of musical offerings as presented by the Kootenay Gallery TD Trust Sunday Concert Series. With no less than three musicians holding principal string positions in three of Canada’s major orchestras, the caliber of performance is unprecedented here in the Kootenays. “We are so fortunate to have violin superstars Jonathan Crow, Concert Master of the Toronto Symphony and Andrew Wan, Concert Master of the Montreal Symphony teaming up for a West Kootenay tour April 17,” says artistic director Nicola Everton. Principal cellist of the Vancouver Symphony Ariel Barnes will join harpist Heidi Krutzen with the Couloir Duo February 21. Supporting our vibrant local

musical scene, the series will be rounded out by local performers Noemi Kiss, soprano and Nicola Everton, clarinet joined by Golden pianist Sue Gould November 29. Nelson’s Cultural Ambassador Bessie Wapp will create a solo performance of spoken word and song on March 13. The season kicks off on Sunday, Oct. 4, 1:30 p.m. at the Trail United Church with the Fish on Five Brass Quintet, hailing from the Okanagan with members of the Okanagan and Kamloops Symphony Orchestras. The quintet presents an eclectic mix of music, including sounds from the renaissance, opera, ragtime, jazz, and pop. Founded in 2009, five brassplaying friends were anchored in a remote cove west of Bella Bella on the central coast of BC. A day of fishing was over and it was time to relax. In the glow of

the setting sun, the musicians assembled on the deck and the music began with the sonorous sounds of brass. The beautiful harmonies were tossed around the cove by an echo that equalled those heard in the cathedrals of Vienna. That setting and experience was the true birthplace of ‘Fish on Five’. Later, in a performance for the elders in Bella Bella at the community centre in Klemtu, the quintet was given the Heiltsuk First Nation’s name, ‘Ski Ouk Meeya’ which means ‘Five Fishes’. Often asked about the quintet’s name, the explanation is simple, as the members yell “Fish on” while catching a fish. ‘Fish on Five’ was a natural evolution. Tickets are $15 or $12 for gallery members, available at the door. Contact Kootenay Gallery 250 365-3337 or kootenaygallery.com.
