We asked you:

Students need to exercise voting power

What can be done to get more young people out to vote?

Hunter Marrington, 18

Marcus Gullberg, 26

Megan Shull, 22

Riley Robertson, 21

Sergei Turner, 22

“There would have to be a big problem or issue that affects me (to get out and vote). I don’t have time to learn about everything when it comes to politics. Students have a lot on the go and I’m just one voice.”

“I don’t think there is one specific thing. When you are young you need to learn that you have a voice. It’s going to have to be education. Right now everyone says it doesn’t matter if I vote.”

“More knowledge. I think we don’t know much about it. It’s a matter of time for students and being able to put the time into knowing about it when you are busy with school and other things.”

“I would say promoting it in schools more. Students are so occupied with other things that they need to see it to become engaged. Also, it would help to have polling stations near schools.”

“I don’t know how you would do that. For me I don’t know much about it. I don’t feel it impacts me. If I directly see it affecting me I might take the time to figure out who to vote for.”

Award winning, Canadian spoken word artist Shane Koyczan made his mark on this country’s psyche at the 2010 Olympics, with his poem, We Are More. Canada, he opined before an international audience, “is an experiment going right for a change.” Those words, he said, don’t have the same resonance today. “The country has changed. (Stephen) Harper said it himself—’ You’re not going to recognize Canada when I’m through with it.’ Well, I already don’t recognize Canada.” said Koyczan, an Okanagan University College grad and

Peniticton resident. Koyczan was speaking from the Kelowna airport Thursday, awaiting a flight to Vancouver where he’s scheduled to perform alongside other musicians involved in the #ImagineOct20th movement . Events are being organized under that banner across the country, and they feature famous Canadian musicians and artists, hoping to encourage voters to oust the Harper government. For Koyczan, it’s the ideal space to express mounting frustrations. “I never thought Canada would be the place to slam the door in the faces of people try to come to the country,” he said, referencing the Syrian refugee crisis.

“Right now you have a party that’s promising to get rid of student debt and you aren’t willing to vote? Free education? Can you imagine living your life without any student debt at all?It’s being offered and nobody is voting. Why is that not enough? What do you want? Free iPhones, what’s it going to take?” He’s not unaware of the lament that one vote

What might be most concerning, however, is that it seems that people aren’t doing anything. Voter apathy brought election participation levels as low as 61 per cent the last time around, and it remains to be seen whether there will be a hike by Oct. 19. “How do you wake people up? What are we supposed to do here?” he said.

The president of the Okanagan College Faculty Association says students appear to be more engaged in this year’s federal election than in any election in recent memory.

Award winning poet Shane Koyczan (centre, kneeling) has joined the #ImagineOct20th campaign with other Canadian musicians and artists encouraging voters to oust the Harper government. Canada pledged in January to bring 10,000 —of an estimated 4.1 million—Syrian refugees to Canada for resettlement. Thus far, only 2,300 have been given access. Koyczan also pointed to concerns he had about the government’s policy to not allow its scientists to speak publicly on their research, and the anti terror bill C-51.

INFLUENTIAL VOTING GROUP

Students have a chance to disrupt polling predictions POWER FROM A3 hitting the books in the Okanagan. Walter says those are big numbers of potential voters that can make a difference in this election. However past elections have shown that young people don’t get out and vote as much as the older generations. In the 2011 federal election, according to Elections Canada, just under 39 per cent of eligible voters aged 18 to 24 cast ballots, compared to more than 75 per cent of voters aged 65 to 74. To get young people engaged and feeling that their vote matters, many have taken to technology and social media, including a former Okanagan College student and now Concordia journalism student Matthew Heuman. Heuman developed an app this year called Vote Note in an effort to pick up the slack where he says Elections Canada no longer can, providing voter information in an

easy to use app that people can access on their phones. Heuman says the Fair Elections Act, introduced by the Harper Government, will make it harder for youth to get out and vote. So the former Penticton resident took it upon himself to develop the app for smart phones to provide the information, not only to the 18 to 24 demographic but to all Canadians. “We just see this as the next step forward,” said Heuman in an interview with the Capital News. “Everyone has a smart phone and this should have been available 10 years ago. We didn’t reinvent the wheel here, we just made all the resources available in a much more concise way. “Everything has an app nowadays and the fact we don’t have one for one of the most important processes in the country, we see that as very archaic.” Heuman says it’s not just youth who aren’t turning out in big numbers to vote

Poet dedicated to ousting Harper WORD FROM A3 feels very dangerous and tenuous.” Koyczan admitted he could speak for hours about politics, but his work isn’t so singularly focused, and those who show up for his show later this month in Kelowna will get a full experience. “It’s more of a roller coaster thing,” he said. “When people come to my shows I want them to have an emotional journey. We will go to some dark places and they will go to some light places, too….I want to reach out to those emotional parts of you and draw them in and remind you that it’s OK to be emotional, you are human after all.” While We Are More was arguably the piece of work that put him on the map for reminding Canadians of their shared connection, he’s seen numerous subsequent successes. His 2012 poetry collection Our Deathbeds Will Be Thirsty, featured the poem To This Day. That anti-bullying poem was made into an animated video viewed online nearly 16 million times, and Koyczan said it did more for his career than anything else to date.. Graphic novels, films and collaborations with musicians of all stripes have followed. “If you are going to be an artist for a living, you have to try a lot of different things,” he said. And, he pointed out, that trying out different things is what got him a career in the first place. “It’s always weird to me that I have fans, and this is what I get to do for a living,” he said. “You go to school, and you hear, ‘This is what you want to do? There’s no chance at all.’ And you get told that enough and you start to believe it…I am constantly astonished from the fans and the support I get that allow me to continue trying this. It’s amazing, it’s a beautiful life.” Koyczan upcoming Canadian tour includes a stop at Kelowna Community Theatre on Oct. 22.

but also the 25 to 34 year old demographic, people starting families and careers. And he says together people from 18 to 34 wield plenty of power. “The ability for 18 to 35 year olds to disrupt the process is huge. Even just a small increase could be a dramatic shift. Five per cent of the youth demographic is 150,000 people which is enough

to make a different. But they see voting as something that is difficult. It’s an arduous process and I think making it more accessible is the first step in getting people more engaged.” At the Salmon Arm campus of OC, Walters agrees that there could be a shift if the younger generations came out to vote in big numbers. “I though for a long

time that young people would be more engaged in this process and I think there is a different energy about this election that might be attractive to them,” he said. “There has been such a huge amount of bad will generated by the current government that has filtered down to young people. I hope this will be the election they come out and vote in droves.”

VOTING OPTIONS

Will electoral reform give voters a greater voice? Kathy Michaels kmichaels@kelownacpanews.com

Does your vote count? It’s a question often lamented in the lead up to Canadian elections, and some say the answer is no. The current first-pastthe-post electoral system, say critics, doesn’t reflect the interests of voters and discourages further political engagement. There are always rumblings about electoral reform, but this year three of the four federal parties have made it an election issue. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau started the conversation in June when he said he’d change the way parliamentarians are elected, if the Liberals were voted in Oct. 19.

Trudeau said he will convene an all-party committee to study the options, then enact some replacement for the current first-past-the-post system within 18 months of being sworn in. While all options will be examined, Liberals have said they lean toward a system with ranked ballots, where second choices are counted in. The NDP has long championed similar intentions toward electoral reform, focusing instead on mixedmember proportional representation (PR), where every elector gets two votes, one for a local MP, another for a party list. The Conservative Party supports the winner-takeall-system that’s currently

in place. It, in the last election, had them win 54 per cent of the seats in the House with just 39 per cent of the popular vote. While an appetite for change at the top tier of Canada’s political scene may be new, talks about electoral reform aren’t. Between 2005 and 2009 there were referendums in Prince Edward Island, Ontario and twice in B.C., yet the

status quo in all those places prevailed, said political scientist Wolf Depner. The public appetite for change hasn’t been there, he said. Depner also has doubts that the political will for change will persist if the parties now advocating for it are elected. “Electoral reform is one of these issues in Canadian politics that pops up every once in awhile, “ Depner said. “A lot of people find our system to be antiquated, outdated and no longer in touch with modern realities…but the thing is, generally parties that talk about electoral reform are the parties not in power. “Once they find themselves in power, they find the value in the system as it is.” The Conservatives, he pointed out, talked about it before they were elected. If the issue gets lost in the shuffle, said Depner,

it will be a bit of a shame, as voter engagement seemingly increases in western democracies that use some form of proportional representation. In Germany, for example, voter engagement was around 70 per cent in the 2011 election. During the 2011 election, Canada’s voter turnout sat at around 61 per cent. Voters, he said, find their voices are better represented in a proportional system . Proportional representation is designed to produce a representative body (like a parliament, legislature, or council) where the voters are represented in that body in proportion to how they voted.   Our current voting system elects only one MP in each riding. When more than two candidates run in an election, MPs can be elected with less than half of the votes in the riding.

The other half of the voters are unrepresented. In contrast, a PR voting system elects several MPs to represent a given geographic region so that most voters in that region have a voice in Parliament. With that system, Depner said that coalition building is also more common. “Parties rarely win an outright majority. Coalitions in countries that use a proportional system are the norm, not the exception,” he said. “And proportional systems are part and parcel of a more consensus-oriented form of democracy and governance, while firstpast-the-post systems tend to be common in democracies that emphasize conflict and competition.” That doesn’t mean there aren’t differences, they’re just expressed in a more muted fashion as agreement is the desired outcome.

••• There are three main families of PR voting systems: PR list—multiple candidates are elected through allocations to an electoral list. They can also be used as part of mixed additional member systems. Mixed Systems— usually a mixture of PR List with a majority rules voting system such as our current system. The most common form is known as MMP for mixed member proportional. This version is used in Germany, New Zealand, Scotland and Wales. Both the MMP and Jenkins models are forms of mixed systems. STV (single transferable vote)—ranked transferable ballots within multi-member ridings. This has been used for more than 100 years in Ireland, Tasmania and the Australian Senate. @kelownanewsKAT

Electoral reform lobby group puts question directly to all candidates Fair Votes Canada lobbies for electoral reform and they’ve contacted every Canadian candidate about the issue. The group posed this question to all the candidates: If you were to summarize your current views on proportional representation in one or two sentences, how would you express it? The responses from the Central Okanagan candidates are as follows: Central OkanaganSimilkameen-Nicola Robert Mellalieu, Green Party Canada is one of a handful of countries that still use the first-pastthe-post system.

Okanagan College efforts echo other vote movements

kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

If the students she represents at Okanagan College had as much passion for the election process as Chelsea Grisch, voter turnout amongst students wouldn’t be a problem. Engaged in the election and passionate about the student vote, Grisch, 25, and the rest of the Okanagan College Students’ Union (OCSU) have been working hard to try and get students motivated to vote in this year’s federal election. “We’re just reminding people that the youth demographic has low voter turnout which is pretty appalling,” said Grisch, the chairperson of the OCSU. “This (election) is not something that has to be determined by old men essentially. Youth are empowered (to make change). “We’re just reminding people that all over the world people die for the right to vote. It’s a big deal and if you like complaining about the country, the back end of that is you’re socially obligated to vote.” The movement at Okanagan College to try and engage young voters is taking place at post secondary institutions across the country. Online the Canadian Federation of BC Students has a campaign underway asking students to pledge to vote with the tag line This Time We Decide (thistimewedecide.ca). And it’s not just

students. Noted comedian Rick Mercer has taken to Facebook to push voting at votenation.ca while Canadian musicians are attempting to rally the vote by promoting #imagineoct20, an online movement asking for change that has included a few concerts. All of these are aimed at getting non-traditional voters out of their malaise and to the polling station. It mirrors the efforts of the Okanagan College Students’ Union in its attempts to get students to care about federal politics at a time in their life when many of them are not only in school but also working one or two jobs to help with tuition. To make it easier and less time-consuming, the OCSU is hoping a unique candidate’s meet and greet on Oct. 14 will allow students the opportunity to have their questions answered and get involved in the political process. Instead of hosting an all-candidates’ forum as they did in 2011, the OCSU has invited each candidate from the two local ridings to an open house style gathering and as of this week, all seven candidates from the Kelowna-Lake Country and Central OkanaganSimilkameen-Nicola ridings had confirmed attendance, according to executive director Brianne Berchowitz. It won’t be your typical forum where candidates introduce themselves and pledge party promises. Instead it will give

Her peers, she says, are a very political generation. They are opinionated and also open to hearing both sides of the story.

Seniors pick on scientist muzzling, veterans issues Sawyer Klassen

Conservative incumbent for KLC, found himself facing off against a unified candidate front on several topics, most notably veteran’s affairs and the “muzzling” of government scientists. Liberal candidates Karley Scott (COSNA) and Stephen Fuhr (KLC) had first crack at the issue of the federal government not allowing scientists to speak openly about scientific research they’re doing for the federal government. “There are a bunch of officers of parliament, like the Parliamentary Budget Officer and the Chief Electoral Officer,

and we’re going to create a chief science officer,” Fuhr said. “His role will be to insure that governmentfunded science is available for the public and to ensure public policy is consistent with that science.” Scott noted the Liberals want to “unmuzzle” scientists, and they have a number of green infrastructure investments to help with innovation and supporting science. She explained the Liberals won’t just develop policy and sit on it for years, but rather reevaluate it on a year-byyear basis to ensure it still works, and overall to develop political policies based on science instead of the other way around. NDP candidate Norah Bowman (KLC) referred to her personal background in science. “I have a PhD from the University of Alberta and I was funded federally in my research, which was about climate change and the mountain pine beetle,” she described. “Definitely there

were times my research disagreed with some of the other research scientists came up with, and that discourse is part of what makes Canada a great country. “So of course, researchers should not be muzzled, especially in the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, which affects things like the zebra mussel right here in our own ecosystem.” Fellow NDP candidate Angelique Wood (COSNA) backed up Bowman’s comments, saying an NDP government will encourage scientific research and will listen to what is discovered. “We know that the research our scientists are doing has to be published outside of Canada to get international attention, and that’s absolutely unpardonable,” Wood said. “We have to bring that research back into Canada and help make our decisions based on it.” Cannan defended the Conservative stance

on scientific research, saying his government has invested a record $13 billion in science. “Out of the G7, in support for scientific research and development, colleges and universities and other research institutions we ranked number one,” Cannan noted. “Locally here, I work closely with UBC Okanagan, we have a program called ‘Survive, Thrive Advanced Research’ and we have a partnership with the private sector and UBCO for $8 million. “We have an excellent working relationship with the Okanagan Basin Water Board and Agriculture Research Centre in Summerland.” Cannan noted scientists in Canada produced 4,000 publications last year which helped drive policy, and stated he doesn’t believe there is a political war on science. Green Party candidate Robert Mellalieu (COSNA) said, “I’d like to agree with that one, that one, that one, that one, and almost with you,” motioning to the Liberal and NDP candidates first, and Cannan last. “Those four forgot to mention the shredding of the documents as well, so I’d like to add that, but I agree with all they said.” Bowman was the first to speak to the issue of providing support for veterans. “Harper has shuttered

nine veteran’s affairs offices, including the one in Kelowna,” she said. “The NDP is going to re-open these offices. For me, this is an issue that, frankly, even if it would save money by closing offices, we need to keep them open. This is a principle. “We don’t ask someone to make the ultimate sacrifice, and then say we need to save a little money so we’re going to cut back what we offered you. That’s not right.” Bowman noted the NDP will also apologize and make amends to those forced from or dismissed from the military based on their sexual orientation or gender identification. Fuhr cited his personal attachment to this particular issue, as a retired Royal Canadian Air Force pilot and current Royal Canadian Legion member who spends a lot of time talking to other vets. “We know that vets are going to court and winning by suing the government for their benefits, and that is completely unacceptable,” Fuhr said. “It’s extremely shocking to find out Veteran Affairs turned back 1.13 billion dollars to the treasury since 2006, so there’s absolutely no way we can reconcile that at all.” Mellalieu said there is a need for more respect to be shown to

veterans from the federal government. “Veterans have to sign a contract of unlimited liability,” he explained. “It’s a contract that says they will die for Canada if asked. I can’t think of a greater love for country. “The Conservatives have not treated these patriots with anywhere near the respect they deserve. “My mom and dad were married in Egypt during the Second World War when they were fighting (German Field Marshal Erwin) Rommel, and I think my dad would be livid to see what’s going on now.” Cannan noted the progress the Conservatives have made in addressing veterans’ issues. “We are making inroads, and we’re still continuing to work with our local Veteran Affairs office staff member that’s still there daily, Monday to Friday,” Cannan said. “You can go see Colleen. She’s there to provide services for the veterans and their families. The nurses will come to your home, and we have a Telehealth office if you need to speak to a psychologist.” He elaborated on the services available to veterans, speaking of the new Family Caregiver Relief Benefit, and $10,000 of employment income eligibility.

Candidates make their points… Some comments from the candidates at the all-candidates forum on seniors’ iissues held in Kelowna on Tuesday: Liberal candidate Karley Scott: “This Prime Minister does not meet with the premiers, and I think you see the effects of that in our health care policies.” “Something that I always push for, it’s not on the platform yet, but I will push for it more, is innovative solutions that incorporate our children spending time with our elders. It’s the way I was raised and I think it’s very important.” “We need to restore our longform census. We have to go back to evidence-based and data-driven decision

making, we’re leaving people behind and things are slipping through the cracks.” Liberal candidate Stephen Fuhr: “Mr. Harper’s added $160 billion to our national debt, that represents 24 per cent of our total debt since our country was formed in 1867. That’s $20 billion per year over six deficit budgets. We’re going to do $10 billion in the first year, $10 billion in the second and $5.7 billion in the third investing in ourselves and in Canadians.” NDP candidate Angelique Wood “Unlike Liberals and Conservatives, we are not going to continue the huge

Candidates make their points… POINTS FROM A8 tax breaks for big corporations. We will cut tax breaks for CEOs and subsidies for fossil fuel industries.” “We know that simply by abolishing the Senate we would have a lot more money to distribute back into essential programs.” NDP candidate Norah Bowman “The NDP had a National Dementia Strategy, we consulted with groups, we consulted with health care providers, and we brought it to the house and it lost by one vote. We had nine Conservatives support it.” “The NDP has a plan to help five million Canadians get access to family doctors, as well as nurse practitioners.” “We have called for a national water strategy because we have to preserve the resources we have, and we need to make sure they aren’t sold like a common commodity.” Green Party candidate Robert Mellalieu: “Health care it is not. It would be better named the low-cost, shortsighted, inefficient death-delay system.” “If you agree that youth are the

economic future of Canada, why do we saddle them with huge debts when they leave college? The Green Party will slash, by phasing it in, the student debt. Students will not have to pay for their post-secondary education, like most countries.” “Since the Senate is busted, I’d actually like to thank the First Nations for acting more like senators than the senators ever did. They have actually forced the government to make decisions they didn’t want to make, they are the ones who are blocking the pipelines right now, they are the ones saving our environment.” Conservatie candidate Ron Cannan: “I’ve made it clear to the Prime Minister that the constituents of Kelowna-Lake Country would not be too upset if the Senate was abolished.” “I met with the premier of the Northwest Territories, and he said they didn’t want to (abolish the Senate) because they only have one MP, so they’d lose 50 per cent of their representation. In the meantime, the prime minister has guaranteed no more appointments.”

Opinion

No such thing as wasted votes In our utopian view, we look at the right to vote as a cornerstone of our democracy. In North America, where the U.S. and Canada are the showcases of democracy to the rest of the world, voting is the balance from living under the rule of tyranny that so many people live under in their native countries today. But that showcase of democracy is beginning to show some cracks. Other system of governing is increasingly tainted by chaos, inaction, apathy, the wealth continuing to be concentrated in fewer and fewer hands. In the U.S., the concept of encouraging people to ‘get out and vote’ has given way to a democratic system that is broken, polluted by limitless corporate donations and campaign election strategies that actually put up obstructions against the marginalized—minorities, the poor the other disenfranchised—from even voting. While that marginalization of voters has not happened to the same extent in Canada, the signs of U.S. political campaigning influence are beginning to show, with one example being Elections Canada limited on how it can promote people getting out to vote. Voter turnout in our last election was the third lowest in Canadian history at 61.4 per cent. The record low was registered in the 2008 election at 58.8 per cent. The emotional plea during every federal election is to recall the veterans who sacrificed their lives for our country to protect our right to vote, our democratic way of life. But sadly today, as the two world wars which created that thought fade into history, that emotional resonance doesn’t have the same impact. Voters look at the federal government, particularly from the outreaches of the west coast, as not being really very relevant to their day-to-day lives. They look at the politicians and feel the same way, finding it increasingly difficult to differentiate one party from another, one candidate from another. Cynical about the process and those running it. But there are two colloquialisms that ring true in the political world: All politics is local; and voting does matter. The challenge to all voter apathy must be met by each of us individually who choose to vote. In the modern day of political campaigning, the idea of the voter turnout rising by 20 or 30 per cent on Oct. 19 would send campaign strategists into a tizzy. All those additional votes would be gamechangers, but only if voters follow through, realize that cynicism for politics starts and ends with them. Otherwise, we deserve what we get for an elected government.

No rationalization for not voting Whenever faced with the question, “Do you vote?” I balk. I balk because of-bloody-course-I-do. We are blessed to have the privilege. Seriously, why would anyone not partake in their democratic right? As I launch into my favourite diatribe, someone else speaks up and says, they don’t vote. Their friends don’t. The lady down the street doesn’t. And the weight of disappointment for my fellow Canadians pushes my shoulders down just a little bit. Because I’m not OK with this line of conversation. I’m not sympathetic. Are we suffering from the downfall of abundance? Is it stupidity? I don’t understand. How can you in one breath complain about the amount of taxes you’re paying or the cost of childcare today, then not vote? What about that student loan? Do you know what the parties are saying? How can you express heartache about refugees dying on European shores, and not march your butt down to the polling station assigned to you

Kathartic KATHY MICHAELS when the time comes? How can you lament the changing weather, and not ask some serious questions about what this country is doing to combat climate change? Each election reporters write stories trying to encourage Canadians to vote. We point to the issues, we make calls and ask political scientists, “can you tell us what’s wrong?” “If it was easier, would people vote?” “If it was online, would people vote?” “If there was electoral reform, would people vote?” People still aren’t showing up at the ballot box, but I can’t stop asking. While I’m on a roll, I’d also like to know what are Canadians talking about around the dinner table these

days? There can’t be such a disconnect that people don’t realize that their individual struggles and triumphs, as well as those of their loved ones and neighbours, are affected by decisions far above our heads. Will your one vote make a difference? Maybe not in the most obvious way, but now is not the time to take a pass on democracy. I’m fond of what Shane Koyczan said to me today. “Your vote is the hand on the wheel. You are steering the country, that’s what your vote is for…Things are not going to change overnight…it’s more of a direction, where we are going.” There are a couple of weeks left, but I hope everyone considers what direction they’d like to put this country in. Even if it’s not the same direction as I will choose. Just choose. Vote. Be a part of the process that people in other parts of the world are dying for.

FOR THE RECORD

POG does not replace cancer treatments

To the editor: Regarding a recent article in Kelowna Capital News (Personalized Treatments for Okanagan Cancer Patients, Sept. 30), it has a substantial error. The POG (Personalized Oncogenomics Program) is not in any way a replacement for chemotherapy or radiation, as your [contributed] article states. The genomic analysis and report generated by POG is meant to provide more information to cancer doctors (oncologists)

and specifically we look for what genomic abnormalities might be responsible for driving the growth or behaviour of a patient’s specific cancer. This additional information may influence the treatments that a patient receives, including chemotherapy. The overarching goal of the program is to use this genomic information to direct the patient toward separate systemic therapy (chemotherapy) clinical trials whenever possible, these are usually targeted chemotherapy drugs.

As POG is a highly experimental new technology, the patients who are enrolled have cancers that have been deemed incurable by standard treatment protocols. If a patient would like to know if they are eligible for POG, they should speak to their oncologist as this protocol is open to patients across B.C. Kevin Sauvé, communications officer, BC Cancer Agency, Vancouver

Why is the price of Kelowna gas among the highest in the country?

Open letter to Ron Cannan [MP Kelowna-Lake Country] and Steve Thomson [MLA Kelowna-Mission]: Kelowna gas, $1.21.9/litre as of September 30, 2015. A very simple question is being asked throughout the Okanagan in which you both supposedly serve. Why is the price of gas higher here than any other city in the country? Why is the government allowing such blatant price fixing in the Okanagan?

Why are prices lower in Vancouver ($1.14) where there is an 11 per cent translink tax included? Why are prices lower [as of Sept. 29] in Kamloops ($1.09) Winnipeg ($0.92) Calgary ($0.97) Regina ($0.96) London ($0.89) Toronto ($0.93) St. Johns ($0.95)? These are questions that you, the

government, have the power to do something about under the Competition Act and the Criminal Code. I realize, Mr. Cannan, you will have to get permission from [Prime Minister Stephen] Harper before you can speak, and, Mr. Thompson, I would imagine you will have to do the same from [B.C. Premier Christy] Clark. People are tired of getting screwed. People want answers now. Ian MacLean, Kelowna

Even Exxon wants to cut greenhouse gases

To the editor: Tom Harris [Little Evidence Warming Climate Leads to Forest Fires, Sept. 25 Kelowna Capital News] has added an unusual perspective on Angela Nagy’s assertion that there are many business opportunities available to innovators and entrepreneurs who have the ability to introduce legitimate green technologies and improvements to our economy, and, perhaps more importantly, to our environment. Mr. Harris, who is affiliated with the much derided Heartland Institute, (he is listed as one of their “experts”) has seemingly cherrypicked some information from the UN IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] that questions whether or not the recent extreme weather phenomena are caused by climate change. Ostensibly, since there is a lack of ironclad proof of the connection, we are to quickly conclude that the UN IPCC has joined the Heartland Institute in its denial of human induced climate change and that we should just shut down all further business initiatives to mitigate climate change and drill baby, drill or, in B.C., frack baby, frack. He goes on to make the point that efforts to reduce our carbon footprint is a waste of our money. Most unusual, indeed. Even a cursory Google search of the IPCC will reveal

that they can get downright scary when they talk about the dire consequences of unabated anthropogenic climate change. He also makes the point that we should be spending more money on adapting to the effects of climate change which may actually be a reasonable suggestion. The peculiar thing about this is that this makes more sense to those of us that suspect that the severe weather necessitates this kind of action. Harris argues that the severe weather consequences are not related to climate change but then tells us we should be spending gobs of our money bracing ourselves for the storm. Most unusual. Harris’ raison d’etre seems to be ‘unusual.’ It gets him a lot of attention. I read his kind of slop like I’m looking at some kind of gory roadside carnage. Unusual to us—but all very usual coming from the same institute that was trying to tell us as late as the 1990s that cigarette smoke was not so terribly bad for our health. Before The Heartland Institute stopped disclosing their source of funds, they listed the who’s who of the oil industry and conservative sources including the Koch family of course. It’s also a little unusual to see that even ExxonMobile yanked their funding from these people because the oil company had at least some remaining vestiges of

On board for ‘senior style’ picketing to get stair rails

To the editor: Re: Prospera Place Needs Hand Rails on Stairs, Sept. 25 Kelowna Capital News. Commendations to Henry Johnson for pointing out the “unsafe lack of railings” at Prospera Place. My heart goes out to this 86-year-old as I, at the tender age of 70, also suffer that feeling when attending events at Prospera Place. I am available to picket, pass leaflets, do

whatever to bring about a resolve to this matter. ‘Senior style’ picketing, getting in the city fathers’ faces, seems the only way something will be done. Let’s get busy folks. I’m with Henry Johnson. It’s high time this safety concern be addressed. Contact me with your support at 778-2147374. Dale Ashton, Kelowna

integrity that led them to stop funding groups that were skeptical of climate change. Maybe Mr. Harris would benefit from briefly reviewing what Exxon says about pursuing their objectives in reducing greenhouse gases right on their own website (http://corporate.exxonmobil.com/en/currentissues/climate-policy/climate-policy-principles/ overview): • promoting energy efficiency • deploying existing technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions costeffectively • supporting research and development of new low-emissions technologies and • supporting climate research to help inform the ongoing policy response. Although Mr. Harris scorns Ms. Nagy for not being “on the right side of this debate,” Exxon certainly doesn’t agree with him and neither do I. Alan Monk, Kelowna

Regional Board Highlights September 2015 New Planning Service Agreements

The Regional Board has received a report announcing the approval of new five year planning services agreements with each of the member municipalities. Each agreement outlines the cost sharing and boundaries for voting participation in RDCO Electoral Area Planning Service effective January 1st, 2016. The new agreements provide the municipalities with the ability to vote on land use applications within a defined Fringe Planning Area in the Electoral Areas.

The 18th annual Maxine DeHart-United Way Ramada Hotel Drive-Thru Breakfast was held from 6 to 9 a.m. Thursday, this year raising an impressive $51,232 from donations collected from the 1,500 free breakfast goody bags and 150 free kids bags handed out. In the photo, Maxine DeHart greets Pamela Pearson with a strawberry sunshine drink, contributed by Matt Coates of Booster Juice, one of the many corporate and private sponsors who make the drive-thru breakfast a success every year.

Auxiliary cops stomp up donations Sawyer Klassen sawyer.klassen@kelownacapnews.com

The Kelowna RCMP’s Auxiliary Constable program found another way to volunteer in their community. Kelowna’s auxiliary members hosted Stomp at the Laurel on Sept. 18, a fundraiser that raised $12,652.50 for the Central Okanagan Hospice House. Auxiliary constable Casey Zimmerman said they had a goal of raising $10,000, which they were thrilled to exceed. “It was just unbelievable support from this group,” she said. “And this is just a local friends and family group, we didn’t outreach to the community to support this. This is through the detachment, through the auxiliary program and through our friends and families. “They really stepped up for us this year, this is pretty amazing.”

Doug Rankmore, with the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, noted they found a great cause to give to. “It’s a tremendous support to Hospice House, and it’s a tremendous cause with a very important and poignant place for people in their lives, and this is great support.” RCMP Insp. Brent Mundle added the hard work of the auxiliaries wasn’t lost on the detachment. “On behalf of myself and the rest of the senior management team, I just wanted to thank the auxiliary constable program for all of the hours they put in throughout the year,” he said. “This event was very successful and obviously they spent a lot of time organizing it and setting it up with a large amount of money being donated to a worthwhile organization within the community.”

Crystal Ski and Golf Resort

The Regional Board has agreed to a final, one year extension to the rezoning application from the proponents of Crystal Ski and Golf Resort. The Board granted previous extension requests to provide the proponents additional time to secure financing to move ahead with the proposed rezoning of Phase 1 of the resort development. If the application doesn’t proceed by September 10th next year, it will lapse and the rezoning file will be closed.

National Awards for Economic Development

The Regional Board praised the work of the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission (EDC), which has recently received two national awards. At the recent Economic Development Association of Canada conference in Whitehorse, the EDC received the Marketing Canada Award for Best Brand Identity/Application and the EDAC/Royal Bank Economic Development Achievement Award for the Okanagan Young Professionals Collective program.

Community Connection October 2015

Why Superheros at DWE? There are two new superheros in town, the Principal and Vice Principal at DWE, aka Capitaine Canada and Fleur de Lys. Why would they choose to become superheros you may ask yourself? Have you ever thought about the difference between the villain and the hero? There is really only one difference, the hero looks out for the greater good above personal gain or need. Why would we want to teach our students this important truth? As we look at how our world is changing to be a global neighbourhood, our students need to be able to think critically and creatively about all that they are exposed to on a constant basis. They need to be able to use criteria to judge what they will believe to be true

and untrue. They need to be able to challenge the injustices that they see and develop ways to make our world a better place for all people, locally, nationally and internationally. We are all connected.

The superheros at DWE will be teaching throughout the year our school values of honesty, empathy, attitude of growth, respect and responsibility and thankfulness. Imovies will be created with the help of our Specialized

Engaging Learning

Outdoor Learning Space

The Curriculum in Education in British Columbia is changing. We want to give our teachers time to understand and play with the changes before full implementation in September 2016. So we created ‘Engaging Learning’ for our students and teachers. Three mornings per week for 30 minutes, groups of students will participate in Superhero Skills- strength, stretch and cardio, Focus Fun- mindful movement, and Nimble Toes- dance with a twist physical activity while teachers are freed up to work together exploring the changes in the curriculum and working together to shift paradigms in lesson planning and resources. The early morning physical activity have been proven to increase concentration, decrease stress and anxiety and boost learning. A qualified and keen group of adults will be instructing and modeling these healthy lifestyle activities. The team is a combination of our school counsellor, administrators, learning assistance teacher and community instructors of mindfulness and gymnastics. Teachers are invited to participate by choice and also select with whom and what they would like to work together on. The topics selected to date are looking at alternate forms of assessment and evaluation, exploring the new science and social studies curriculums and how to make it work for combined classroomsschool wide and enhancing literacy to meet the diverse needs of students.

This opportunity for both students and teachers will be tried until the winter break and then evaluated to see if it should continue and if so how to improve engaging learning.

Leadership Task Force techie students to teach these important values. The superhero theme creates a sense of excitement and fun to engage interest and it is also fun for the Principal and Vice Principal!

The teachers at DWE were looking to connect students with one another and with nature. On the school grounds we have grass and chain link fences. We wanted to create a space outside that invited students and our community to engage in learning with each other and the natural surroundings to promote positive mental health and healthy activity. Our journey began with thinking and dreaming for two years. This year we are looking forward to action towards making our dreams come true. Our PAC has already raised more than $21,000 towards the project. We now have a combined team of Okanagan College Civil Engineering students, our PAC, our teachers, our students and our school district working together to take the ideas into the reality. The four Engineering students have been working with us to survey the land, come up with a few possible plans and map out the steps and costs involved. We are very fortunate that they chose us for their practical

community project. The design elements include natural materials, changing the elevation of the area on the school grounds, including elements identified by both students and teachers and keeping all of this in line with our limited budget. All stakeholders will have the opportunity to give feedback on the proposal by the Engineering students to help alter or improve the plan for our school. We are not looking to create a classroom outside and do exactly what we do inside outside. We are looking to create a space that promotes both individual and group learning. We are hoping to have places to sit, work and gather. We are also hoping to include fun elements in the design such as a treehouse and zip line. When many minds are put together for a positive, healthy purpose, the sky is the limit!

The paddler is moving to new waters. After almost five years of paddling his stand up paddle board every day in Kelowna and area and 50 years living in the community Bob Purdy is taking his SUP board and heading for Tofino. Purdy has decided it is time for change and will relocate to the Vancouver Island community with his wife Sharon. “It’s been difficult and exciting, that is often the nature of change,” Purdy told the Kelowna Capital News. “I have lived in Kelowna for more than 50 years, and it is with mixed emotions that Sharon and I are moving to Tofino. It is difficult due to the many friends and familiar places we will be leaving behind here in Kelowna. It’s also exciting to look forward to connecting with new friends and exploring new places in Tofino.” Purdy began his mission to change the way we live on the planet on New Years Day in 2011, calling it Paddle for the Planet and setting a goal of paddling for 1,000 days in a row to raise awareness to the damage done to the environment by humans. And while change may come slowly, Purdy never wavered in his commitment to his one-man-mission, paddling each and every day, through winter and tough weather conditions for (as of this Sunday) 1,737 straight days. Purdy’s movement gained plenty of traction, sparking similar movements throughout North America and other parts of the world and culminating with the first annual World Paddle for the Planet day in June of 2012. His efforts were also made into an award-winning documentary, appropriately called The Paddler. “I started Paddle for the Planet to ‘Change the Way we live on the

Planet,’” he said. “My original paddle goal was 1,000 days and I figured that should be enough time to ‘Change the Way we live on the Planet.’ “To see the reach Paddle for the Planet has had is incredible to me. I have had so much support. It is impossible to name everyone that has helped us get to where we are.” Purdy says while he is moving away from the Okanagan, his efforts to impact change in the world won’t end when he leaves and he has committed to continue to paddle board each and every day. In Tofino, he has found his calling. “The ocean is calling,” he said. “I first visited Tofino in 1971 and have wanted to move there ever since. The clincher was filming the movie. We did four location shoots there and had our 3rd World for the Planet Day in September last year. “The community wrapped their arms around us and in addition to the friends we already had, we met and got support from a bunch of new ones. “Like Kelowna, Tofino is a treasure that needs us to step up and protect it. Unlike Kelowna, it is on the ocean and our oceans are facing significant challenges that need immediate change from us.” Purdy has organized one more public event in Kelowna before he floats on down to Tofino. This Sunday at Rotary Beach at 1 p.m. Purdy will host a Mahalo Kelowna Paddle to say thank-you to Kelowna and the people that have helped him along the way. And he says it will be a fitting closure to a significant chapter in his life. “Every time our message gets out, we see change happen,” he said. “It’s time to change the way we live on the Planet. We’re just getting started.” KP_media1

THRILL SEEKER LIVES HIS SUNSHINE DREAM!

OKANAGAN MARATHON MAKES DREAMS COME TRUE FOR SUNSHINE KIDS. In December 2011, eleven year old Nathan from BC woke up bright and early with an extra burst of excitement pumping through his heart. He and about 70 other Sunshine Dream kids were about to begin their whirlwind one day trip to Disneyland® Park on Sunshine’s 49th DreamLift, from Kelowna. Parents waved good bye as Nathan and the other kids trekked forward on a day of independence, discovery and adventure cared for by a dedicated volunteer medical team and community volunteers. A day in Disney was right up Nathan’s alley. While he uses a wheelchair for mobility, his Mother, Danielle, describes him as a thrill seeker who loves to go on rides - the scarier the better and the faster they are the more he laughs! Nathan loves the sensory stimulation of the flashing lights, booming music, and the twists and turns of the roller coasters. So of course, his Sunshine DreamLift adventure included endless rides. After his exciting day at Disney on the DreamLift, Nathan’s inner thrill seeker needed more! He knew he wanted the chance to visit Disneyland again for a longer period of time, to go on as many rides as he could, and take his family along for the adventure. So in 2013, The Sunshine Foundation of Canada presented Nathan with his Sunshine Dream – a family trip to Disneyland® Park, with his parents, sister and brother. It was such a meaningful trip affording family time that will live forever in their hearts. Over the past 20 years, the BMO Okanagan Marathon has raised over $300,000 for Canadian children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses, in the lower mainland and across Canada. Sunshine Kids return from a Sunshine Dream experience with more optimism, feel more independent, and more confident to pursue other dreams in life. The Sunshine Foundation of Canada is a national charity fulling dreams of children living with severe physical disabilities or life threatening illnesses through two programs. Sunshine Individual Dreams range from family trips to customized bicycles. Sunshine DreamLifts are one-day adventures to a Disney theme park for 70-80 children. Since its inception in 1987, Sunshine has fulfilled more than 8,000 dreams for children across Canada. Your caring commitment ensures more dreams can be fulfilled for Sunshine Kids living in British Columbia and coast to coast. Thank you for being a Sunshine ‘Dream Maker’!

Sports WHL HOCKEY

Foote steps right in with Rockets Warren Henderson It didn’t take long for Cal Foote to establish himself as a top-four defenseman with the Kelowna Rockets. Just three games into his Western Hockey League career, the 16-year-old from Denver has been filling the role of a seasoned veteran, playing in all situations and logging 20-plus minutes of ice time on a nightly basis. “I think he’s going to be a very special player, for sure,” Rockets’ assistant coach Kris Mallette said of Foote. “Game by game, he’s gotten better and better. He’s a very composed young man, his vision is very good, and he’s very poised out there. I’d say, so far, so good for him.” Foote, the son of former NHL defenseman Adam Foote, was the Rockets’ second round choice in the 2014 WHL bantam draft. As an Americanborn player—with dual citizenship—Foote had several options on which direction to go with his hockey career, including the Ontario Hockey League, the American college route or the U.S.

It was kind of hard to turn down the Rockets. You look at all the players they’ve produced, especially the defensemen, it’s pretty amazing, you can’t really say no.” Cal Foote developmental program. In the end, Foote said Kelowna stood out above the rest. “It was kind of hard to turn down the Rockets,” said the 6-foot-3, 195-pound Foote, who turns 17 in December. “You look at all the players they’ve produced, especially the defensemen, it’s pretty amazing, you can’t really say no. “I really consider myself Canadian, too, so I did want to play in the CHL,” he added. “It was ultimately my decision and (the Rockets) is what I chose.” While Foote comes to the Rockets with plenty of natural talent— thanks in large part to his bloodlines—Mallette said the guidance and coaching he received

MARISSA BAEKCER/SHOOTTHEBREEZE

Rookie defenceman Cal Foote is fitting in well with the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets. from his dad over the years has been invaluable. “I was fortunate to be able to sit with his dad (Adam) during training camp and you can tell he’s taken a lot of pride

in coaching Cal, teaching him the ins and outs of the game,” Mallette said. “And it really shows. Just to be around the pro game I think has helped him, too, seeing his dad

at an elite level. The knowledge he’s passed on has been very beneficial for (Cal).” In addition to being a quick study with the Rockets, Foote didn’t

waste time in getting his first point in major junior hockey. Last Saturday in Vancouver, Foote knocked down an errant pass and fired a power play goal past the Giants’ netminder for his first WHL goal. “It felt good,” he said, “it was nice to get that first one.” As for the positive reviews from the Rockets coaching staff and his quick transition to the WHL game, Foote said he’s simply grateful to be getting the opportunity. “I just feel fortunate to be in the lineup every night, so far,” said Foote. “It’s a great opportunity to be here in Kelowna, I love it here, and I just want to make the best of it.” If all goes as planned, Cal will one day suit up with his younger brother in Kelowna Rockets’ colours. The WHL champs made Nolan Foote their first choice, 43rd overall in the 2015 bantam draft.

FOUR IN FIVE…

The Rockets’ mental and physical stamina will be on trial this weekend as the defending champs play four games in five nights in Alberta.

Kelowna (2-1-0-0) starts off in Edmonton on Friday, followed by stops in Red Deer Saturday, Lethbridge on Sunday and in Medicine Hat on Tuesday. “We’ll need to be road warriors in this stretch, make sure we play tight road hockey,” said Rockets head coach Brad Ralph. “It’s not ideal, I don’t know if there’s many other teams that have to deal with this (scheduling), but we have to find a way through it. Hopefully we can get off to a good start and carry that through.” Kelowna’s next home action is Friday, Oct. 9 against the Victoria Royals.

DUBE SUSPENDED…

The Rockets will be without forward Dillon Dube for the first two games of their Alberta road trip this weekend. The 17-year-old from Cochrane, Alta., has been disciplined for a kneeing major and ensuing game misconduct during Saturday’s game in Vancouver against the Giants. Dube will be eligible to return for Kelowna’s game Sunday in Lethbridge. @capnewsports.ca

A pair of Kelowna Rockets are on the radar for next summer’s NHL entry draft. Forty WHL players, including Dillon Dube and Lucas Johansen, were on NHL Central Scouting’s 2016 Players to Watch List, a preliminary ranking of players eligible for next year’s NHL Draft.

Dube, a forward from Cochrane, Alta., and Johansen, a defenceman from Port Moody, are both in their second seasons with the Rockets. Dube posted 17 goals and 27 points in 45 games as a rookie last season while Johansen played in 65 games in his rookie year, putting up

Warriors host unbeaten Wild The West Kelowna Warriors are looking for a bounce-back effort Saturday night as they prepare to take on the BCHL’s only undefeated team at Royal LePage Place. In a 7 p.m. face off, the Warriors will meet the expansion Wenatchee Wild who are off to a 5-0 start in their inaugural season. “They’re a very good team, fast and skilled, and they have a very good goaltender (Chase

Perry),” Warriors head coach and GM Rylan Ferster said of the Wild. “They’ll be a real test for us.” The Warriors are trying to regroup after a lopsided loss on Wednesday night in Merritt. The Centennials scored five times in the first period en route to a 9-1 drubbing of West Kelowna. The Warriors made five goaltending changes during the game, switching back and forth

between Daniel Mannella and Forbes Ploszaj. Liam Blackburn scored West Kelowna’s lone goal on a second-period power play. On Tuesday night, the Warriors will be home to Coquitlam.

CENTRAL SCOUTING

Ex-Ok Rockets trio makes watch list Three members of the Okanagan Rockets’ 2014 B.C. Major Midget League championship team are garnering their share of attention from NHL scouts. Tyson Jost, Jake Kryski and Liam Finlay were named this week on NHL Central Scouting’s Players to Watch list for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Jost, a member of the Penticton Vees, and Finlay, a forward with

the Vernon Vipers, were among nine BCHL players on the list released this week. Kryski, who plays with the Kamloops Blazers, was among 40 WHL players cited on the list. Central Scouting identifies players with a rating system that includes four categories. The ‘A’ rating indicates a first round candidate, a ‘B’ rating indicates a second or third round candidate, and a ‘C’ rating indicates a fourth, fifth, or sixth round candidate. Jost, a projected firstround choice, is on the A list, while Kryksi and Finlay have a C rating. Former Okanagan Rockets’ GM David Michaud, who is now watching Jost in his new position as director of player development

Tyson makes it look easy,” Michaud said. “He’s poised to have a very special season.” Jost, Kryski and Finlay were all key members of the 2013-14 Okanagan Rockets who won the B.C. title, the Pacific regional championship, and a bronze medal at the Telus Cup national midget hockey championship.

Bears battle Owls tonight at Apple Bowl Warren Henderson Since the two teams first met 12 seasons ago, it continues to be one of the most intriguing rivalries in all of B.C. high school football. Tonight at the Apple Bowl, the Mt. Boucherie Bears and KSS Owls will square off in the 2015 edition of the Battle of the Bridge. In addition to pride, first place in the Eastern Conference is on the line, with both the Bears and Owls off to 1-0 starts. Regardless of their records heading in, Boucherie coach Mike Godwin said BearsOwls matchup inevitably produces some fireworks. “It’s always an exciting game between us, even on years where one team was struggling through conference play, the perceived ‘weaker’ team always manages to rise to the occasion,” said Godwin, whose team opened the regular season with a 32-0 win over Centennial. “Throughout the 12year rivalry, most games have come down to one score.” In their first year under new head coach Ben Macauley, the Owls are off to a strong start, drubbing Lord Tweedsmuir 49-8 last Friday in the regular season opener. And while it’s still very early in the season, Macauley said Friday’s clash will feel more like a playoff game. “I would be lying if I said this game isn’t a

little extra special,” said Macauley. “The players know each other, they have grown up together and now the line has been drawn in the sand. “If you don’t get excited for this game, you probably don’t have a pulse.” While Macauley has a healthy respect for the Bears, he also likes the direction the KSS program is heading in. “They are a good team with a lot of speed and skill,” said Macauley. “We have been on the other end, working out the kinks with a brand new coaching staff and new philosophy. I think the players are starting to buy into the systems and trust each other.” Other than a game with plenty of intensity, Mike Godwin isn’t making any predictions

about the outcome of Friday’s tilt. “To be honest, right now I have no idea what to expect,” said Godwin. “KSS has been putting up huge offensive numbers and we have been playing pretty good defense, but I don’t think either team is playing to their full potential just yet. “These games are stressful for coaches but amazing for the fans.” Kick off at the Apple Bowl between the Bears and Owls is 6:30 p.m. Meanwhile, the two teams, along with the Okanagan Sun, will be collecting donations for the recovery of former Sun receiver Jesse Kendall. Kendall was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident last month after suffering a brain aneurysm.

The UBC Okanagan Heat women’s squad battled hard but came up short in their second game of the preseason in the B.C. Rugby Union’s Premier Division. On Saturday at the Parkinson Rec Centre, the Heat fell 38-29 to the visiting Bayside club from Surrey. It was a much improved effort for UBCO over their first Premier game, 52-0 to Burnaby Lake. Heat veteran Monique Beaulieu was pleased with her team’s play and improvement from the first outing. “We did better in defence coming up off the line and closing the gap,” said Beaulieu. “Our forwards were more mobile than theirs and we were able to gained

UBC Okanagan even at 19, a stalemate ensued until Smith scored her second of the match to put the upstart Heat up 24-19. Tied at 24, Chloe Worrall scored when the ball went through Charlotte Hall, Monique Beaulieu, and Jordan Pittman in a neat little line that found Chloe on the wing with the overlap. Bayside scored the final 15 points to win on the road in comeback fashion. The Heat are now 0-2 and things will not get easier for the team looking for their first win. On Saturday, the team will travel to Saturday Seattle to play the undefeated Seattle Saracens at Magnuson Park.

When we sent it wide we were able to use our speed on the outside with an overlap to our advantage.” The speed was evident early on as UBC Okanagan was the first team on the board with an early try by the speedy back Kate Smith. Bayside fired back and struck for three tries in the first half, completing the conversion on two of the three. The score at the break was close but the veteran Bayside squad held a slim 19-12 lead on the Heat. The Heat’s Danielle Ferns scored right out of the break after a Bayside penalty and completed the conversion to draw

HEAT ATHLETICS

Heat holds own in loss to Bayside

The Heat women’s rugby team couldn’t pull away from Bayside Saturday in a preseason Premier Division match at the Parkinson fields.

Lee wins, hole-in-one for Siemers Third-year Heat golfer Carolyn Lee shot her two best rounds of the year to earn her second PACWEST tournament win on the tour this season. Lee carded a pair of 76s to win at Bear Mountain last weekend, and for her efforts was also named PACWEST athlete of the week. Lee’s 152 was three strokes better than Fraser Valley’s Hannah Dirkson, who took first the previous week. But Lee’s dominance wasn’t the talk of the UBC Okanagan women’s golf team, as that distinction went to freshman Lauren Siemers. Siemers hit her first ever hole-in-one on Sunday at Victoria’s Bear Mountain Resort.

Lauren Siemers

Siemers, a 2015 Mount Boucherie grad, finished third in the tournament and had the most exciting moment of her golf career when she aced the fourth hole at Bear Mountain. “Definitely the most excited I’ve ever been on the course, I didn’t actually see it go in so there was a lot of suspense heading up the green,” said Siemers.

Golfing with teammate Lee on Sunday, Siemers made her hole in one on an elevated green and nobody in the foursome knew it was an ace until they found the ball in the hole. Lee, who self-described her own play over the tournament as “pretty good,” with a caveat that her short game gave her troubles, described the hole in one as such: “I thought she jarred it into the hole. We couldn’t see it,” Lee explained, “all we heard was the sound of a ball hitting the flagpole. It was a really cool moment.” It was Siemers firstever hole in one and she described the moment as “the most excited I’ve ever been on the course.” Though no one saw it go

in, “I had a pretty good feeling that mine was in the hole.” On Sunday Lauren shot 82-77 to finish third, two strokes ahead of her other teammate, Emily Adams. The Heat women won the team event with a combined score of 313, 22 strokes better than Fraser Valley. The Heat men finished third as a team 26 strokes behind Camosun, as the Chargers have won all three tournaments this season. Leading the way for UBC Okanagan was James Casorso, a third-year golfer from Immaculata Regional High School, who finished third, two strokes behind Camosun’s Jeff Riches.

Some of the best women sailors in Canada are in the Okanagan this weekend as the Kelowna Yacht Club plays host to the 2015 RE/MAX Sail Canada Women’s Keelboat Championships. The competition begins Friday on Okanagan Lake and features crews from all across Canada, and one from the U.S. “We have 19 teams from as far away as Halifax, as well as the Caroline Grant team from Nantucket, Massachusetts,” says committee chair and skipper Gillian Thomson. “The races take place over three days out on the water by the yacht club and spectators can get a good view from Waterfront Park.” Canadian competitors include B.C.-based teams from Kelowna, West Kelowna, Summerland, Vernon, Penticton and Victoria, as well as teams from Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia. The women sailors will all race in Santana 525 boats. Designed by Shad Turner in the 1970s for Schock Boats to meet the international offshore rule standards, the competitive 25-foot day racer comfortably hosts a family for a weekend trip.

The event is poised to build on the success of the 2007 championships held in Kelowna. Over the last eight years, the enthusiasm for women’s sailing has

Who doesn’t wonder what the purpose of life is? Who doesn’t think of death without trepidation? These are the issues that emerge from Calvin White’s latest book, Letters From the Land of Fear, (Guernica Editions, Toronto). For 11 months, White worked as a mental health specialist with Doctors Without Borders in Central Asia. During that time he worked every day to keep death at bay from the 400 patients that the international humanitarian aid

organization was serving. That area of the planet, little known to most of us, is the region of the ancient Silk Road which connected Europe to the Far East. Today it’s the region hardest hit by the environmental disaster of the Aral Sea. Formerly a part of the Soviet Union, the Aral Sea was once the fourth largest body of inland water on the planet. The decision of Soviet authorities to siphon off water from its two feeder rivers for cotton production has resulted in a sea now only 70% of

its former size. That has created uncontrollable health issues from the toxic winds that carry their poisons from the exposed sea bed. Multidrug resistant tuberculosis is epidemic in the Uzbekistan area that White was sent to. His job was to counsel patients and to train local counselors to help patients cope with their affliction. During the period White was there, an eruption of communal violence in the east of the region also threw him into trauma and post traumatic stress

The Okanagan Regional Library in Kelowna is sponsoring the author for a special evening presentation on Monday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. There is no charge.

With 38 years of provincial fisheries and related project management experience, Matthews is highly qualified to provide practical leadership that supports MCRI’s vision of restoring and protecting Mission Creek to enrich historical, ecological, and recreational values for the Okanagan. Matthews will begin by organizing and overseeing the set back of portions of the south dike between Casorso Road and Gordon Drive. Expected to start later

this fall, this expansion of floodplains and riparian areas will help to increase fish habitat and populations. Complementary objectives are to expand biodiversity and species at risk, improve flood protection, and inspire and support community stewardship. “Based on my experience with other large-scale restoration projects,” said Matthews,

“MCRI has huge potential over the long term for providing a wide range of benefits for Kelowna and area, and will be key to recovery of Okanagan Lake fish stocks.” The success of important community projects depends on passionate and innovative collaboration among people from all sectors, and MCRI is no exception. Founding partners include the Province of BC, Regional District of Central Okanagan, City of Kelowna, Westbank First Nation, Okanagan Nation Alliance, Friends of Mission Creek, and Central Okanagan Land Trust. Subsequent contributors have included consulting

engineers from a variety of firms and engineering students from UBCO`s Capstone Project, who recenlty undertook detailed design for the Phase-1 dike setback under the supervision of experienced water engineers. Once approved by the province, the design will guide dike reconstruction and related in-stream fisheries work. “Okanagan residents also have an important role to play,” says Matthews. “During construction there will be tree-planting opportunities. Once construction is complete, volunteers can help with monitoring and story mapping. Stay tuned for more details.”

Fall is the time to turf the turf and Make Water Work Judie Steeves.

it with wet cardboard. Mulch that with four inches of Ogogrow or well-rotted manure, or wood chips if you plan to put in just shrubs. Keep the area wet so the grass rots underneath over winter. Then, do a test dig in spring to ensure the turf has rotted, before seeding

With a forecast that the next six months will be the warmest on record, residents of the Okanagan are advised to prepare for at least another year of extremely dry weather by making landscape changes this fall so they can conserve water next season. Fall is a good time to replace water-hungry turf by over-seeding or replacing existing lawn with drought tolerant turf or seed. One such product available in the Okanagan is Eco-Smart Blend, which requires 40 per cent less water than standard lawn grasses, advises Barry Paull, who owns Eco-Turf Farms in Kelowna. Lawns are among the heaviest users of water in the landscape, so they’re a good place to begin in trying to conserve. The sod is available until mid-November or freeze-up, says Paull, who explains that they switched from standard turf to this deep-rooted blend about three years ago in response to customer demand for a more WaterWise option. When removing existing turf, replace it with a deep layer of good topsoil before replanting with water-conserving lawn. Roots of Eco-Turf can grow to 15 inches, compared to four to six inches for standard varieties, according to Paull. Okanagan Xeriscape Association executivedirector Gwen Steele suggests if you decide to put in plants instead of turf, begin by replacing just a portion of your existing lawn with drought-tolerant plants. “Fall is a good time to plant because the air is cool, but the soil is still warm, which is ideal for

As well, some perennials can be planted by seed in fall, including blanket-flower or gaillardia; rudbeckias; coreopsis and echinacea. Autumn is also a good time of year to tinker with your plantings. Steele recommends you take a walk around your landscape and make notes on which plants did not do well in our hot, dry summer. There might be a better location where they would get a bit more water or shade. Remember to group plants with similar water needs. For a listing of WaterWise plants that might do better in that location find the new Make Water Plant Collection, and a listing of local nurseries that carry the collection, at www. MakeWaterWork.ca/

plants. The collection was created in partnership between the Okanagan Basin Water Board’s WaterWise program, OXA and Bylands Nurseries. For more ideas, browse the extensive plant database on the OXA website (www. okanaganxeriscape. org) . You will also find a Landscape Assessment Tool there to help you reduce outdoor watering. Steele is an enthusiastic fan of creating compost. Leaves that drop to the ground in fall are a perfect start. Small ones can be left where they fall, but large ones should be mowed or shredded first. But don’t use walnut leaves, she adds. If you do decide to replace an existing thirsty lawn you can also smother it over winter in preparation for a colourful xeriscape landscape or droughtresistant lawn in spring. First, cut it very short, soak it well and cover

or planting, advises Steele. With 24 per cent of all Okanagan water used on household lawns and gardens, and less water available per person than anywhere in Canada, valley residents are encouraged to reduce outdoor water use this summer and fall. Take

the pledge to Make Water Work at www. MakeWaterWork.ca. Take the pledge to: • Water plants. Not pavement. • Water between dusk and dawn. • Leave lawn 5-8 cm (2-3 inches) tall • Leave grass clippings as mulch

• Top dress with compost; and • Change out some lawn for drought-tolerant turf and/or native and low-water variety plants. Make Water Work is an initiative of the Okanagan Basin Water Board and its Okanagan WaterWise program.

Electrical meltdowns can prove a little unsettling Today’s original column is likely still floating about in techno-space somewhere looking for a lonely doorstep on some lonely planet upon which to land. Clearly I have no idea where it went and quite frankly I am just as perplexed as to how it disappeared. (I am refusing to acknowledge the reality that I probably just hit the wrong button somewhere, somehow). Instead of accepting some personal responsibility for the now missing column I prefer to play victim and suggest that I have no knowledge of how it vaporized. While the ‘how’ may be a mystery the ‘why’ is not. It is something long time friends laughingly refer to as Hodge Luck. When it comes to anything technological, mechanical or electrical, I am best to keep a very

Hodge Podge CHARLIE HODGE safe distance away from it. Safe as in a long, long way—certainly well out of my reach. It seems whenever I touch such things (especially electrical) they have the unique and complex ability to blow up, explode, implode, melt down, or simply quit. It’s a discouraging and frustrating phenomena sadly saddled as a personal burden for as long as I can recall. Part of my lack of confidence and insecurity comes from nearly anything electrical screwing up the minute I lay hands on them. Machinery and equipment simply wait

for me to show up so they can malfunction. My first recollection of the dubious skill was around age 10 or so when I would attempt to turn on the old black and white television we had. Attempt being the key word because most of the time I received a minor shock and literally saw sparks fly as I reached out towards the set to pull on the metal knob. A loud zap or pop was often included in the light show and more often than not I would jump back from the set slightly tingling from the experience. Others, including dear old dad, often found the routine somewhat amusing, however I rarely shared the sport of it all. When it was suggested that the cause was that

I was wearing socks or creating static on the rug, I countered that by putting on shoes or slippers. However, the minor electrocutions would still occasionally continue. Televisions were not the only source of electrical obnoxiousness. To this day, I occasionally get zapped by radios, fridges, microphones—if it is plugged in or has a battery I am at risk. Flashlights often stop working when I hold them, only to work for someone else later. Cell phones and computers routinely quit or simply shut down for no reason. After a while it became a bit of a bad joke at the newspaper offices, especially when my skill kicked in on a deadline day and the malfunction was critical.

One would think that with such weird luck around electrical stuff that I would have gone into a business that involved operating something like vegetables or trees rather than computers, cameras or PA systems. But no that would be far too logical. Instead, I spent much of my career and spare time in the entertainment world using microphones, electronic instruments, or setting up and running light shows. If playing dodgethat-charge seemed silly enough with TV sets and computers, then operating stage lighting systems running at 220 volts really pushed the gambit. One nearly fatal day while working with a band at the Village Green Pub in Vernon, I somehow managed to arc myself between my 220volt power snake and the 110 volt line running the PA system. I remember hearing the boom as I literally was blown into the air for a

few feet before crash landing into a massive biker playing pool. As I lay on the floor vibrating from the aftershock, I remember looking up and seeing the hulking pool shark standing above me looking surprised and with his pool cue raised threateningly above my head like he was preparing to finish me off. I remember thinking “Go ahead—Why not?” as I thrashed about in pain. All the hair on my arms and chest were seared and I smelled like burnt hair for days. While no one ever figured out what happened, it was suggested that the sound man had used a faulty chord. For the members of the band, they jokingly chocked it up to ‘Hodge Luck. Fast forward to today. I recently purchased a new lap top (that’s another saga) and due to ever increasing arthritis in the hands impacting my book writing project, I decided to purchase a

Dragon Speak program (speak into a headset and it dictates onto the screen). Having successfully test driven the program a few weeks back, I decided to write today’s column with it. Everything was coming together rather well and I was 80 per cent done with a humorous tale of a recent trip in Vancouver when suddenly Dragon Speak disappeared from the screen. An hour of searching revealed nothing so I finally gave up and contacted Computer Geeks for help. Nearly two hours later the young wizards at that online service managed to restore the program but, naturally the column was gone. When I asked what he thought I might have done wrong the techy replied, “No idea sir, never seen something like that before with Dragon Speak. Weird. I’d say it was just bad luck.” Hmm…where have I heard that before?

Scarecrows even have to face change Whether you’ve got a crow problem or just want to come out and create a scarecrow at the annual Uptown Rutland Scarecrow Festival on Sunday, Oct. 4, at Lions Park, 205 Gray Rd., there is something you need to know. The one element traditionally used to stuff the insides of a scarecrow, namely hay, will be missing. Due to a shortage of available hay this year, the festival organizers faced a challenge of how to make up to 150 scarecrows without perhaps the most important element. “The festival committee loves how engaging it is for the attendees to build the scarecrows but we also realize the importance of staying within budget and not being wasteful,” said Laurel D’Andrea, executive director for the Uptown Rutland Business Association. “Our team brainstormed for a solution then reached out to our community partner, the Kelowna Capital News, with a solution on how to stuff, plug or fill the scarecrows for 2015.” Festival participants will be able to use newsprint “roll ends” to stuff the bodies, while there will be a limited amount of hay on site to finish off each scarecrow entry. “We will still supply frames, potato sacks, felt pens to create the face, clothing and twine. We are also encouraging people to bring their own scarecrow building supplies from home, we have had some pretty unique scarecrows over the years and they keep getting better,” D’Andrea said. Prizes will be awarded for the most

original, made by a family and people’s choice. Some Rutland businesses are also doing “pre-made” scarecrows up for most original and best representation of your business award categories. “The other thing that our committee is hoping, is for the families to take their scarecrow home. Halloween is just around the corner and it would look great in your yard,” D’Andrea added. “That’s the other great thing about using less hay, it’s not as messy and parents might give in and let their kids take them home. Besides scarecrow creations, the festival will also feature crafting, face painting, crazy hair, City of Kelowna Park & Play, Kelowna Chiefs on hand, a petting zoo, live local entertainment, market vendors, community group exhibits and the foodie trucks. And it’s all for free. Also watch for the“apple crisp contest” sponsored by Coopers Foods in Rutland, with gift certificates offered as prizes. Lions Park is located on Gray Road behind the Coopers Foods grocery store in Plaza 33. The event will run from noon to 4 p.m. For more info check out the website ourrutland.ca.

Fall in the Shenandoah Valley is full of colours.

Chasing fall’s colours in Shenandoah Valley

Gretchen McKay

contributor

LURAY, Va.—Some years ago, fresh out of college and poor as church mice, my husband and I set out on our great honeymoon adventure. Our three-day drive from Pittsburgh to jobs in Miami would take us through Virginia’s picturesque Shenandoah Valley. To humour my father, we agreed to stop at Luray Caverns. Good call, Dad! Discovered in 1878 and named a National Natural Landmark in the early 1970s, the 64-acre series of subterranean rooms and passageways proved pretty amazing, despite a hokey tour that takes visitors more than a mile

and 160 feet below the surface. “If you use your imagination,” our elderly guide kept parroting, we’d see the likes of fried eggs, ice cream cones, giant redwoods and a big shaggy dog on the fantastical, slowgrowing calcite formations. (Created millions of years ago by mineral-rich water dripping upon limestone, the icicle-like stalactites and pillarlike stalagmites grow about an inch every 100 years.) There’s something magical about being deep underground, where the temperature is always 54 degrees, and still feeling dwarfed by nature; some of the cavern’s dimly lit rooms soar 10 stories. And how cool is the cavern’s sparkling Dream Lake, which reflects myriad stalactites hanging above on the ceiling? We knew

someday, we’d be back. Our redux came last month, after dropping our daughter off for her sophomore year at James Madison University. It proved just as fun as the first time. Fall is the perfect time to visit Luray and Shenandoah National Park’s nearby Skyline Drive, which runs 105 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Come October, it’s a leaf-peepers paradise. The entire valley turns brilliant shades of crimson, yellow and orange, and local farms sell apples along with pumpkins and other fall foods from roadside stands. (For a weekly fall foliage report, visit dof.virginia.gov/ fall.) We started our trip in scenic Harrisonburg, home to the university. Known as part of

the Breadbasket of the Confederacy, it’s a must-do for history buffs interested in Civil War battlefields and historic sites such as the Hardesty-Higgins House, used briefly as headquarters for Union Gen. Nathaniel Banks. It’s equally popular with bicyclists, thanks to multiple road and mountain-biking trails, and also a boon for foodies, who have dozens of restaurants to choose from in the state’s first designated culinary district. Add three craft breweries, a cider house and a pair of wineries to the victual delights. We saluted the fall semester with a terrific lunch of pulled pork and cheese grits at Clementine Cafe on South Main Street, also an

Lineups can be long in Shenandoah SHENANDOAH FROM A29 art gallery and live music venue. Then it was on to Kline’s Dairy Bar—a local institution since 1943— for orange creams, after which we drove a halfhour south to Staunton. It’s tough to imagine a small town more charming than Staunton (it’s pronounced “Stanton” y’all!), home to Mary Baldwin College and the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum. Extremely walkable, it’s postcard pretty. And talk about things to do: Its sixblock main street bustles with antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops and quaint boutiques ripe for the picking. It’s also a boon for theatre lovers: The American Shakespeare Center houses the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s original indoor theatre, the 300-seat Blackfriars Playhouse. It’s next door to the historic Stonewall Jackson Hotel where, after checking in, we made a beeline to chef Ian Boden’s much-lauded 26-seat restaurant, The Shack. The pimento cheese and pork cracklins we noshed al fresco while watching a guy across the street cut grass were a memorable pretheatre treat. Nourished, we then clapped and hooted our way through a very lively production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. And neither one of us thought we liked Shakespeare! (The cast is that good.) While the playhouse is lively, the town after hours is anything but:

The Double Column in Giant’s Hall is one of Luray Caverns’ largest formations at 47 feet tall. Save for Zynadoa (serving upscale Southern food) and Byers Street Bistro, where we ate burgers at the bar and listened to a band from Richmond, Staunton pretty much rolls up the sidewalks after dark. Then again, you want to be up early Saturday morning for the farmers market at the corner of Byers and Johnson streets in the Wharf District, lush with locally grown produce, organic honey and baked goods. We’d hoped to take a peek inside Trinity Episcopal Church, which contains 12 Tiffany windows spanning Louis Comfort Tiffany’s 40year career, but the doors were locked. So instead, my husband talked me into visiting Bruce

Elder’s antique/classic car museum, located in a 1911 Ford dealership building. For $5, we got to see two floors of more than 50 cars, both for sale and display, including Richard Petty’s 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix Winston Cup Race car, a 1911 Chalmers Model 30 with wooden spoke wheels and the ‘35 Packard convertible Arthur Miller drove Marilyn Monroe in. As payback, I insisted we do a craft beer tasting ($10 for four) at Redbeard Brewing, a small batch brewery on Lewis Street. I recommend the Black Rye IPA, along with the burgers, on your way out of town at the nondescript Marino’s Lunch on North Augusta Street. A fave with locals, it’s been a beer joint and legendary bluegrass hot spot for more than 100 years. Staunton is just a few miles from the Rockfish Gap entrance to Shenandoah National Park’s Skyline Drive, where the $20 per car entry buys you seven days on the 105-mile drive. If you plan on hiking, ask the park ranger at the gate for trail maps; they’re marked with elevation, distance and effort (easy to challenging). We did two hikes during our stay: the 2.2-mile loop to the Turk Mountain Overlook (harder than it looked) and the 1.6-mile Stony Man Trail partway along the Appalachian Trail to Stony Man Summit, Shenandoah’s second highest peak at 4,010

feet (easier than we imagined). If you just plan on going point to point by car, know that the 35 mph speed limit makes for slow driving. Sometimes infuriatingly so, as drivers pull on and off for the drive’s 75(!) overlooks. We thought the views of the rolling piedmont to the east were more spectacular than those of the Luray Valley to the west, but they’re all Instagramworthy (even if you can’t immediately post them due to poor cell service). If you’re overnighting on the drive, there’s only three choices, and they’re all pretty rustic, if also charming: Lewis Mountain Cabins, Big Meadow Lodge (where you’ll find the Harry F. Byrd Visitor Center) and Skyland Lodge, where we enjoyed views from the highest point on Skyline Drive from the comfort of our room. A word of caution for you impatient types: while the resort regional fare was very good, the restaurant can be extremely crowded on weekend evenings. Expect a wait. (It took almost an hour just to get a beer in the taproom.) Another long queue is in store if you don’t get to Luray Caverns early; by 11 a.m., the line was snaking out the door, even for advance-ticket buyers. We made one last stop before heading back north: the Virginia Farm Market in Winchester (known as the Apple Capital of Virginia, look for the big red barn). In addition to jug-your-own cider and a dozen or more varieties of locally grown apples to choose from, its pumpkin patch during the season boasts 15,000 pumpkins. Splurge on the apple cider doughnuts.

IF YOU GO:

Bordered by the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Alleghenies to the west, Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley stretches some 200 miles from Harpers Ferry, W.Va., to Roanoke, Va. Skyline Drive is the only public road within Shenandoah National Park. The park is open year-round, although most visitor facilities and services close from late November to March. Call the park’s recorded info line at 1-540-999-3500 or visit nps.gov/shen. More info: visitshenandoah.org or visitskylinedrive.org.

The extremely rigid body structure is a ground-breaking marriage of steel, aluminum and carbon-fibre (core) members. The end result is a 7 Series with a much lower centre of gravity and close to perfect front/rear weight distribution. The 750i xDrive and 750Li xDrive editions will soon be arriving in Canadian BMW dealer showrooms. A BMW 750i xDrive model will have a starting MSRP of $113,900, and a long-wheelbase 750iL xDrive at $117,900. Pricing, which should be lower, for the 740 editions will be announced closer to market launch next year. A redesigned 4.4 litre V 8 engine with TwinPower Turbo technology can produce 445 hp and rocket a 750i to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds (according to BMW). It’s teamed with an eight-speed automatic and a new version of BMW’s intelligent all-wheel-drive system in the 750i xDrive. BMW’s venerable 3.0-litre inline 6-cylinder engine, which now also features TwinPower Turbo technology, will power 740i xDrive and 740Li xDrive editions. A plug-in hybrid 740e xDrive will also join the model lineup in 2016. Its 2.0-litre gas engine is paired with electric drive unit that’s integrated into the eight-speed Steptronic transmission and it comes with a lithium-ion battery pack.

Life imitates art in new offering of Nissan cars By Keith Morgan When car manufacturers roll out futuristic designs at big shows, most observers dismiss them as fanciful art projects that will never see the light of a dealership showroom. Nissan has defied the notion that concepts are merely eye candy in recent years by bringing to life those flashy show vehicles.

And, the new design language is making its way into still more cars, the latest being its best-selling Altima. For the new 2016 Altima the design team adopted key aspects of both the exterior and interior styling themes to give the popular mid-size sedan a fresh new appearance, including the “Energetic Flow” exterior

Two key elements are the redesigned V-Motion grille and boomerang-shape headlights, similar to those found on the Murano and Maxima. The look is dramatically different from the 2015 Altima design, with a wide, deeply sculpted lower bumper, integrated fog lights (SR, SV and SL models) and prominent chrome-trimmed grille.

Extreme hot weather testing for the new Kia Sportage.

www.kelownacapnews.com B3

driveway

CONTRIBUTED

Sportage can take the heat Kia Motors has revealed details of the intensive hot weather development tests for the all-new Kia Sportage as part of the most extreme and rigorous vehicle testing program ever devised by the company. The all-new Sportage made its global debut at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show earlier this month, and will go on sale globally in the first quarter of 2016. Now entering its fourth-generation, Kia’s all-new compact CUV is undergoing the final stages of its development, with engineers testing the Sportage in Death Valley—one of the hottest places on Earth, with temperatures rising as high as 56 C (132 F) in the summer months. This stage of testing means Kia can develop cars designed to operate in the harshest environments. For the all-new Sportage’s hot weather test, particular focus has been placed on developing its class-leading heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Among the various individual hot weather testing

methods, three grueling tests are often employed by Kia’s vehicle test engineers, placing huge demand on the HVAC systems and the effects they have on engine and transmission cooling when used in the extreme heat. The first of these tests is the up-hill climb, in which the vehicle is soaked in the midday sun for an hour to bring the cabin temperature over 50 C (122 F). The Sportage is then driven from sea level to almost 5,000 feet elevation through the aptly-named Furnace Creek area of Death Valley, a steady climb over 27 km at 100 km/h. The test is designed to ensure that the additional load placed on the engine has minimum impact on the car’s ability to cool itself and its occupants. The second test, the stopand-go drive, simulates typical conditions in a congested urban centre. Engineers drive the all-new Sportage at 40 km/h for two minutes through Furnace Creek, before stopping and idling for another two minutes.

The process is repeated several times, and—again—is designed to put additional strain on the engine, transmission and HVAC systems and eliminate any possible flaws. The final test devised by Kia’s engineering teams for the all-new Sportage is a slow drive, which takes place at the lowest point in North America, Badwater Basin—around 86 metres below sea level. After another one-hour heat soak, the all-new Sportage is driven at 40 km/h for 30 minutes at a time, allowing vehicle engineers to verify—and improve—the capacity of the HVAC system when there is a dramatically reduced level of airflow to the air conditioning condenser unit. In addition to the demands placed on the car by the extreme conditions of Death Valley, Kia also carries out a series of hot weather tests at the company’s own North American testing facility—the Mojave Proving Ground. —Metroland Media

Culture ENTERTAINMENT: WHAT’S ON

Mosaic book store hosts visit from Bowering Rhythms, a dance instructor of many styles of dance, and currently a computer science student at Okanagan College. Wendy Goudie is dedicated to “elevating bellydance as a respected and respectful art form” as the founder of BC BellyFest and Get Bent Bellydancing, Western Canada’s largest bellydance school located in Penticton.

Mosaics will focus on his latest book, Writing the Okanagan, a collection of his favourite poetry, history, and stories set in our valley.

George Bowering is a major Canadian literary figure and one of the most prolific writers in the country, having written more than 80 books. Bowering is a two-time winner of the Governor General’s Award and has been shortlisted for the Griffin Prize for Poetry, Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize, Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, and B.C.’s National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction. In November 2002 he was appointed Canada’s first Parliamentary Poet Laureate. That same month he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. In 2004 he was awarded the Order of British Columbia. In 2011 he received the British Columbia Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence and the UBC Alumni Achievement Award. He is a widely respected poet, novelist, essayist, critic, teacher, historian, editor, and tireless supporter of fellow writers. In short, Bowering is one of the most interesting people you will ever meet. His appearance at

This ground-breaking rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of the last week of Christ’s life. The zeal with which Christ’s followers are hailing him as the Son of God becomes a source of dismay to his disciple Judas Iscariot. Fearing that this tide of religious fervour will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal. Jesus Christ Superstar was originally released as a rock album in 1970; it reached No. 1 on the Billboard chart in 1971 and was soon turned into a musical, which debuted on Broadway later that year. As compelling today as it was at its inception over 40 years ago, Jesus Christ Superstar features some of musical theatre’s most legendary songs from I Don’t Know How to Love Him, Everything’s Alright, Gethsemane and Superstar. “It’s timeless and for our time,” said Randy Leslie, artistic managing director. “That’s why we are setting it in modern times, capturing the social justice aspects of Christ’s teachings that are still relevant today. “News footage from the Vancouver riots in 2011, the use of

BOOK LAUNCH Kah-Lan, The Adventurous Sea Otter by Karen Autio Saturday, Oct. 3 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Kelowna Library 1380 Ellis St. Just like the determined sea otter in her new illustrated novel for young readers, Karen Autio had to be persistent in her 30year quest to see KahLan, The Adventurous Sea Otter from concept to publication. The short novel (illustrated by Sheena Lott) may be a west coast adventure tale revolving around sea otters, but there is nothing cute and cuddly in this story. The Kelowna-based Autio is known for her meticulous research as the main characters in her latest novel are realistic sea otters who must engage their wits and strength in the face of danger in order to survive and return to their home bay. Blending natural history with storytelling, Kah-

On View LIZ WYLIE In Canada, art students are taught in school about the Canadian artists who came before them— for example Paul Kane, Cornelius Krieghoff, the Group of Seven and Emily Carr. Painted images by all these forebears form the visual compost from which young artists sprout and flourish. Eventually, artists must decide on their stances on things. For example, about landscape painting—a huge part of Canada’s visual heritage—do they wish to engage with it at all, or completely ignore it? All our historical images and related

narratives form a kind of cultural backdrop against which we define ourselves. It becomes so familiar that we can sometimes forget that it is

there. Thus it can become hard for us to imagine what it would be like to be an artist growing up in another part of the world, with a totally different artistic heritage. Jeroen Witvliet, the artist featured in the current solo exhibition at the Kelowna Art Gallery, provides food for thought along this line, as he is Dutch by birth and upbringing, from a completely different artistic heritage. Witlviet grew up in a village next to the city of Rotterdam, and his paintings draw from Dutch artists of the

Imagine for a moment the amazing privilege but also onerous burden, of inheriting van Gogh, to choose one example, as your forefather? How would that influence the work you made as an artist? Maybe you would end up doing paintings something like Witvliet’s—dark, brooding, intense, and enigmatic, but also finely wrought, beautiful, and mesmerizing.

To register visit: 100 dinners.eventbrite.ca

People familiar with historical Dutch painting will sense echoes of the dark, brooding mood in old master Dutch paintings sounding in Witvliet’s work. Unlike the works of the old masters, however, Witvliet’s output generally is often on a large scale—17 of the 30 works in the current show are mostly over six feet high. Intriguingly, 13 paintings are tiny, only 9-by-12-inches in size. These smaller recent works depict clasping hands, tattooed wrists, and in one case, a human skull. The larger paintings, many from the artist’s Wayfarer series, are of bunches of twigs and branches with objects interspersed, or in four huge examples, lit stadiums seen at night. Almost all works are painted in black and white, with some of the Wayfarer canvases having licks of orange and blue, only in touches. As with historical Netherlandish painting, much of the symbolism is hidden. We can only guess at what some of the items depicted mean to the artist—a toad, a pair of antlers, a dog painted in blue, for instance. Six of the works have been moved from the walls out into the middle of the gallery space and are supported with wooden trusses to keep them upright. In doing this, the artist wants to emphasize our own bodily, physical experience of art, and not have viewers just see the works with our eyes and in our heads. Jeroen Witvliet: Wayfarer exhibit will remain on view at the Kelowna Art Gallery until Oct. 18. Liz Wylie is the curator at the Kelowna Art Gallery. 250-762-2226 kelownaartgallery.com

RANDALL, VICTOR (KENNETH) It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our dad, husband, grandfather, uncle, brother-in-law and friend Vic (Doc) Randall on September 25, 2015. Vic is survived by his wife, Betty, daughter Corinne (Doug) granddaughters Nicole and Samantha and daughter Wendy (Gordon) grandson Curtis and granddaughter Katie. Vic was born in Lizard Lake, Saskatchewan on June 9, 1936. Vic lived his life on his own terms and was well respected in his career. Vic and Betty worked hard at starting their custom stainless business in Edmonton, Alberta after many years of experience that Vic gained working for other companies. His passion for fishing, camping, motor biking, snowmobiling, flying, gardening and puttering in his shop always filled Vic’s time. With smiles on our faces we will always remember the times Vic spent telling jokes, singing around the campfire on his guitar or just goofing around with friends. Many thanks to the amazing nurses, staff and volunteers at the Kelowna Hospice House. A Memorial Service will be held in Edmonton. In lieu of flowers please donate to your own favorite charity.

MARY MARGARET DUNBAR (NEE BULKOT) SUNRISE: JANUARY 5, 1928 SUNSET: SEPTEMBER 23, 2015 Mary passed away peacefully at Brandt’s Creek Mews in Kelowna, BC on the morning of September 23rd. Mary was born in Mayook, B.C, the youngest daughter of Mary and Basil Bulkot, immigrants from Skola, Poland who arrived in Canada in the early 1900’s. Mary was raised on her family homestead farm in Mayook and upon graduation she moved to Cranbrook where she worked at the local newspaper. In 1949 she married the love of her life, John Dunbar and they raised four children together. Over the years they would live in 5 provinces as John’s career in the RCAF had them moving every time they seemed to have settled in. In 1973 they retired to Kelowna to enjoy their remaining years together.
