B.C. Liberal staffer quits, faces charges TOM FLETCHER Black Press B.C. Liberal Party executive director Laura Miller has resigned and returned to Ontario to face criminal charges stemming from deletion of government email records belonging to the Ontario government.

Miller was deputy chief of staff to former Ontario Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty in 2013. She and former chief of staff David Livingstone have been charged with one count each of breach of trust, mischief in relation to data and “misuse of a computer system to commit the offence

of mischief,” the Ontario Provincial Police said in a statement Thursday. The charges relate to email records that were sought by opposition parties after the Ontario government abruptly cancelled two planned gas-fired power plants that were facing strong local opposition. Miller

and Livingstone were accused of bringing in Miller’s partner, computer technician Peter Faist, to erase hard drives in McGuinty’s office that contained the records. Miller left the Ontario government when McGuinty retired and came to B.C. to work for the B.C. Liberal Party. Miller posted a

statement on her Twitter account Thursday, saying she has retained lawyer Clayton Ruby to defend her. She said the charges come after she filed a complaint against two OPP officers over their investigation into the handling of the gas plant documents investigation.

Premier bans political interference in records There will be no more political staff deleting email records in ministry offices, Premier Christy Clark promised Wednesday. Clark said she accepts all of the recommendations made by Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham and a follow-up study by a former commissioner to preserve email records that could be requested under freedom of information law. “The practice of ‘triple deleting’ will be prohibited, ministers and political staff will continue to retain sent emails and a new policy and specific training will be developed,” Clark said. “As soon as practicable, public servants will be made responsible for the searching of records responsive to information requests on behalf of ministers and political staff.” Denham reported in October on investigations into three complaints, and determined in at least one case that emails had been intentionally deleted in an effort to avoid public release. She also condemned the practice of political staff such as Clark’s deputy chief of staff to delete all of their sent emails at the end of each day. A political staffer in Transportation Minister Todd Stone’s office resigned when Denham’s report came out. She said he denied under oath deleting another staffer’s emails related to meetings with remote communities on safe transit options for

Highway 16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert. NDP leader John Horgan said giving non-partisan public servants responsibility for records searches is an important step, but the government needs to legislate a “duty to document” policy decisions of government. Clark told reporters Wednesday that step will be taken once legislation is prepared to build on existing requirements. The government brought in former information and privacy commissioner David Loukidelis to recommend new practices. Among his

recommendations was to adjust government email systems so even deleted records are kept long enough to be captured in monthly computer backups, to allow later examination in cases where they may be the last location kept. Loukedelis said it not practical for any government to keep all email records, and attempting to archive such a massive volume of data would not only increase costs but would harm the public’s ability to get timely access. And any attempt to vet each email to determine if it should be kept would cause government to “grind

to a halt.” B.C.’s Chief Information Officer reported that the B.C. public service now receives 284 million email messages each year, and sends out another 86 million. “To suggest, as some have, that all informa-

There are two main types of calcium supplements used today. Calcium carbonate is less expensive and depends on stomach acid for best absorption. Take these with meals. Calcium citrate, the more expensive form, is absorbed well when taken with or without food. Keep a list of all the medications you take with you at all times. This list should contain all prescribed medications, non prescription medications and herbal products. Many people don’t include vitamins and herbal products on this list but they can be important in assessing your health. Side effects can happen with medications. Most are minor and selflimiting. Examples include nausea, drowsiness and skin rashes. Side effects can happen when certain drugs are mixed with others. Alcohol is a good example of the “other” drug. As your pharmacists, we will inform you of any side effects that may affect your quality of life. Good habits to cultivate for 2016 include taking your medications correctly. daily exercise, not smoking, moderate alcohol consumption and eating sensibly to keep your weight in control. These habits all contribute to a healthier life. There is another habit we would like you to keep… having our pharmacists fill your prescriptions. The side effects of this service are only positive.

CITY COUNCIL NEWS What a Year That Was! It’s hard to believe that a full year has passed since Council was sworn in to begin our four-year term. We accomplished much this year, thanks to Council’s collaborative and collegial approach to the many important issues we tackled. First and foremost, we modernized and streamlined Council’s procedures and governance structure. Our Council meetings are now on Tuesday nights and our agendas are much more focused, making our meetings more productive. The effectiveness of our Council meetings stems in part from the hard work of our three standing committees: Financial Sustainability and Audit Committee (FSAC); Policy and Bylaw Review Committee (PABCOM); and, Executive Committee (ECom). These Committees meet in the open, allow Council members to really dig in to the City’s business, and enable Council to provide strategic leadership to City staff on an ongoing basis. Just as importantly, we’ve put the City on the path of fiscal sustainability. This foundational work was essential before we could start to wrestle with other sustainability issues confronting our community. We also had to get the City’s costs under control and address its long-standing infrastructure deficit in order to create the financial room to take on new challenges and take advantage of new opportunities. Council did this work with minimal disruption to City programs and services and minimum impact on staffing. Council’s proposed new fiscal framework for 2016-2019 (freezing industrial taxes at 2015 levels for the next three years and increasing taxes only on commercial and residential ratepayers through 2018) will result in residential ratepayers contributing more to the City’s overall revenues -- about an extra twoonie/month each of the next three years. At the end of this three-year period of incremental taxes, Quesnel will still continue to enjoy one of the lowest municipal residential property tax rates in the province! We’re hopeful the three-year tax freeze on industrial ratepayers will help us to attract investment in this sector and help stabilize our industrial workforce during this transition period. The third major initiative of Council was to cleanup and modernize our policies and our bylaws so we can begin to concentrate on creating new bylaws and policies that will shape our community into a dynamic and progressive place to visit, to live in and to invest in. We’ve already begun this process by banning smoking in public places, restricting panhandling activities (particularly in the downtown core), and prohibiting vehicle idling on public roads and parking lots. A fourth major theme of Council this year was to refresh Council’s (and, consequently, taxpayers’) relationship with outside agencies and organizations. We streamlined all of Council’s external committees and appointments, and we also dramatically reduced Council spending on third-party initiatives. As a general principle, Council believes that your taxes should be spent on services, programs and infrastructure in a manner that provides the ‘most benefits to the most taxpayers.’ On behalf of Council, I wish you a very merry Christmas and a safe holiday season.

New era awaits

t’s been a six-year journey to reach the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation commission, but this shouldn’t be considered the end of the trail. The thousands of pages chronicling decades of suffering from victims of the residential school system came at a great cost, both to those that had the courage to stand up and tell their tale, along with all those who never even had the chance. That investment of courage is, in itself, enough to say this report shouldn’t be like so many others and left to gather dust on the shelves, referenced occasionally in court decisions and scholarly articles. The report represents so much more. It’s a foundation to build a new relationship on. Justice Murray Sinclair, the head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, summed it up when he said the change would not be immediate; that it will take years, possibly generations. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called it a “new path, working together toward a nation-to-nation relationship based on recognition, rights, respect, co-operation and partnership.” Here in the Okanagan, First Nations have been active in forging a new path for themselves, building relationships with the surrounding communities and business partners. That’s not to say these communities don’t face many problems: substance abuse, health and education are ongoing battles, which Sinclair said the commission’s finding show are rooted, directly or indirectly, in years of government efforts to “assimilate, acculturate, indoctrinate and destroy.” Co-operation has already led to great gains in the Okanagan. Imagine what might be achieved when we fully embrace the other three key factors Trudeau cited: recognition, rights and respect. –BP

Horgan on trade, carbon tax and LNG NDP leader John Horgan sat down with Tom Fletcher for a year-end interview in his Victoria office Dec. 10. Here are excerpts. For the full version, see the Opinion tab at [your paper’s website]. TF: In the recent federal election, national NDP leader Thomas Mulcair rejected the Trans Pacific Partnership sight unseen, endorsing letters from Unifor and CUPE saying this is a bad deal. Is your party seen as against Pacific Rim trade? JH: No, I don’t think so, and what I said at the time was that I support trade. We’re a trade-centred province. We’re looking across the ocean at the largest market the world has known, and I support getting our products to higher-priced markets. But having said that, the B.C. Liberals embraced TPP without even having seen it. TF: The NDP and unions have historically been protectionist. Do you see any need to modernize the B.C. party? JH: When it comes to trade, I think we have

B.C. Views modernized. And who was the first premier to go on a trade mission from British Columbia? It was Dave Barrett. And now there has been a succession of premiers make regular visits to other markets to try to stimulate economic activity here at home. TF: Your party supports the carbon tax now, but not the revenue neutral approach. Do you support increasing the rate? JH: I’ve looked carefully at the report tabled by the premier’s [advisory] group, a vast array of British Columbians, and there was a lot of water put into the wine to get to the position they got to. What I’m comfortable with is that the date that they’ve selected for a ramping up

from scratch. Getting to the coast is a challenge for fossil fuels, and the last LNG price point I saw delivered in Asia was $5.70 a unit. You’re not going to make money at that price, even with rockbottom prices here in B.C. TF: We’ve just had a couple of announcements as part of the government’s Jobs Plan, $100 million in financing for tech startups, which your critic was pleased about, and an agriculture and food strategy. Are we going to see more Jobs Plan advertising in the new year? JH: It’s the Christmas season, the federal election is over, there are two sets of ads running now. I think these ads are selfpromotion. These are not informing the public on information that they really need. If it’s just smiling people with hardhats on, I think we’re going to have something to say about that. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

of the carbon tax is 2018, which will be a year after the next provincial election. So if I’m successful and form a government, I’ll have time to look at tax policy broadly to see if we can make improvements in the carbon tax. For me, and I think for most British Columbians, the model that Alberta has adopted of taking revenues and driving them into industries, or activities like transit, that will reduce emissions over time. TF: Natural gas price and volume continue to go down, along with commodities generally, and supply of oil and gas keeps going up. What’s your take on the prospects for LNG after the year we’ve had? JH: Not good. I’ve always said price will determine whether investors drop down multi-billions of dollars in a far-away place to provide a product that is not developed here. Brownfield opportunities have moved very quickly in the U.S. Changing LNG import facilities to export facilities is a whole lot easier and cheaper than starting

Increase funding to child welfare system Editor: Open letter to Premier Clark and Minister Cadieux: Two reports were released this week that touch on the lives of Aboriginal children and youth. One was written by a Justice and will transform Canada’s relationship with Aboriginal peoples. The other by a government insider, flippantly dismisses the value of reports written by Justices, and similarly dismisses Aboriginal peoples, taking as its incomprehensible premise that kids will die, and that this is just the collateral damage we should expect in a system that the government has starved and ignored.  The problem is, that the kids who die in care every year, like the 90 deaths already reported this year have critical commonalities: they are mostly Aboriginal and they have

bounced through child welfare without anyone hearing their stories or finding the time to listen or tell these in a way that builds change. They are tough stories, like Paige Gauthier and Alex Gervais, which sent shockwaves across the Province as people digested the instability and professional indifference our children experience while in government care, but these stories have to come out if we want change. The final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission is among the most important, farreaching, and profound documents ever produced about Aboriginal Peoples. Driven by the leadership of Justice Murray Sinclair, it documents one of the darkest episodes in Canadian history that saw thousands of our children seized, abused, and

killed. As Prime Minister Trudeau observed, the report will change Canada both through the comprehensive implementation of all of its 94 calls to action, and by transforming how we learn, talk, and relate to one another. We note that the first five calls to action address child welfare, and importantly, that the first recommendation calls upon the federal, provincial, territorial, and Aboriginal governments to commit to reducing the number of Aboriginal children in care and sets out clear steps for this to take place.
The other report - Plecas Review, Part  One: Decision Time, commissioned by the Christy Clark government and written by a former provincial bureaucrat - is the polar opposite of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report. In the way it was pro-

duced and in its content, it harkens to another era when our children were forcibly removed from their homes and put into the residential school system, and where our land was taken and our culture was outlawed, with our well-being a distant thought. Decision Time proposes sweeping changes to child welfare in this province, including ending vital independent oversight. These recommendations were developed with no engagement of First Nations, despite the fact that fully 60 per cent of the children in care in British Columbia are Aboriginal.
Through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report, we are all collectively saying “never again” regarding harm and risk to children, and the federal government under Prime Minister Trudeau, is hearing us and

has committed to action. In contrast, at the same time, the Christy Clark government appears through Decision Time to instead say ‘it will always be.’ We cannot overstress that not a single one of our children is disposable, and we take great offense at the casual suggestion by Mr. Plecas that we must simply accept and normalize the deaths of any of our children.
Decision time appears to us as a cynical political effort by the Christy Clark government to move the disturbing truth concerning the condition of Aboriginal children back into the shadows. Through the efforts of our communities, as well as the Representative for Children and Youth, the reality our Peoples face has entered the minds of the public and resulted in growing calls for action.

Having a government insider write a report that tries to end oversight and hinder the growth of a desperately needed culture of accountability is absolutely unacceptable.
It is 2015. Reports such as Decision Time speak to a bygone era that the federal government and growing numbers of Canadians and British Columbians reject. The Christy Clark government needs to show that it stands up for Aboriginal children and youth and shelve Decision Time. Further, we call on the premier to implement all of the Representative for Children and Youth’s outstanding recommendations, including her recommendations for increased funding and supports to the child welfare system.

Offer a gift to charitable organizations During the Christmas season, you are especially encouraged to give generously to the charitable organizations close to your heart. Christmas is a special time of the year when prosperity and sharing, love and open hearts and spirits, prevail. It is the time of the year when we spend the most. It is also the most opportune time to give generously to the charitable organizations that help the sick, children, seniors, people who are alone, and everyone in need. The Holidays are particulary difficult for many charitable organizations that must respond to a greater demand from people in distress or precarious situations. Some organizations work throughout the year. If you are among the people who wish to make a cash donation, there are a great many national and local organizations that need your help: your local hospital foundation, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundations, the Salvation Army, the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Canada, the Red Cross, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Alzheimer Society of Canada, and United Way, to name just a few Are you unsure about where to make a donation? Why not try the association found on this page? Christmas is a time of giving and sharing. Give to those in need this Holiday Season.

A Christmas birthday celebration I

Shop ’till you drop Madeling Rempel won the chance to grab as many groceries as she could in five minutes with the first prize win in the St. Ann’s Catholic School raffle. She managed to rack up just over $850. Second prize was a $250 Save-on Foods gift card won by Gwen Bryant and third prize of a $100 Save-On Foods gift card went to Alysha Orr. The school is raising money for field trips for the students, books for the library and sports equipment and jerseys. Contributed photo

Characters of the Nativity – Jesus

n the simplest of terms, Christmas is a birthday celebration. Even though we receive presents and there usually is no birthday cake, Christmas is a birthday party for Jesus. But we celebrate it differently than we do other birthdays, don’t we? When we celebrate a birthday, we usually focus on the age of a person. Even when acknowledging the birth of a historical figure we usually reflect upon their life as a whole. We rarely dwell on the person as a newborn, year after year. But this is what we do at Christmas. We celebrate the birth of baby Jesus. It is fitting that we reflect upon Jesus as an infant at Christmas. Jesus’ birth in and of itself was remarkable. He did not descend from heaven as a powerful man,

Laura Van Schaick

Salvation Army but rather entered the world in the messy act of human birth. God himself came to Earth as a crying, pooping, helpless babe. Let us never hesitate to celebrate this baby at Christmas, to marvel at His incarnation, because there is mystery and majesty wrapped up in this moment. Of course, Jesus did grow to be an adult. Jesus did accomplish great things as a grown man. He performed miracles like healing cripples, multiplying food and raising people from the dead. He taught thousands of

people who travelled far distances to hear him speak. And then he willingly died a criminal’s death on a cross, despite having lived without sin, to pay the price for your sins and mine, before rising again. Oh there is much to celebrate if we were to look at Jesus’ adult life.

But for now, during the Christmas season, let us instead continue to focus on the baby lying in the manger. This is how God chose to come. He chose to humble himself to the lowliest of positions so that He could experience life as we know it. That God chose to come to Earth as a

baby points to His strong desire to be with us – Emmanuel, God with us. So celebrate the baby, but remember to trust the Savior. That’s how to make a Christmas birthday celebration complete. Laura Van Schaick is a lieutenant with the Salvation Army in Quesenel.

Gamache attempted to get back in the game with a strong push in the fourth end, but couldn’t break through as Karin’s Deli and Health Foods took home the victory. Quesnel Lawn Care defeated Sky-Hi Scaffolding 6-4 in a back and forth game with QLC breaking through with a last shot take out to earn the win. Essential Business Service took home the win in the final match, defeating Service Electric 8-2. EBS took four in the fifth end to break a 2-2 tie and then stole one in the sixth end to cruise to victory.

Classic holiday cookies with a healthful twist T

his traditional festive cookie incorporates whole wheat flour to provide a fibre boost without compromising flavour or texture.

Whole wheat gingerbread cookies Prep time: 30 minutes Chill time: 1 hour Bake time: 9 minutes Yields: approximately 6 dozen (72) cookies Ingredients: • 1 cup (250 mL) unsalted butter, softened

• 1 cup (250 mL) packed golden yellow sugar • 1/4 cup (60 mL) 100% pure fancy molasses • 1 large egg, lightly beaten • 1 tsp (5 mL) artificial vanilla extract • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) iodized sea salt • 1 1/2 cups (275 mL) whole wheat flour • 1 1/2 cups (275 mL) all purpose white flour • 2 tsp (10 mL) ground ginger • 2 tsp (10 mL) ground cinnamon • 2 tsp (10 mL) baking cocoa • 2 tsp (10 mL) baking soda

Directions: 1. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in molasses, egg, vanilla, and salt until combined. 2. In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients; add to wet ingredients and mix until well blended and dough forms. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before handling. If chilled overnight, allow the dough to warm up slightly or it may crack when it is rolled out. 3. Preheat oven to 350F (175C.) Line two baking trays

with parchment paper, set aside. Divide dough into four pieces; roll out one at a time keeping the remaining dough refrigerated. 4. Roll dough to ¼ inch (½ cm) thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut into desired shapes using floured cookie cutters. Carefully transfer to prepared baking trays. 5. Bake for 7 – 9 minutes, rotating trays top to bottom halfway through, or until cookies are set. Cool 1 – 2 minutes on the tray then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before decorating.

Tips: Make a simple Royal Icing to decorate. It will harden overnight, making the cookies stackable for storage. Lightly whisk together 1 egg white and ¼ tsp (1 mL) lemon juice. Gradually beat in 1 ½ - 2 ½ cups (375-625 mL) of icing sugar to desired consistency. Tint using food colouring, then pipe onto cookies using a zipper storage bag with the corner snipped off. Allow the icing to dry overnight before storing in an airtight container. –newscanada
