MISSION CREEK RESTORATION

Original water flow route revival Kevin Parnell kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Over the course of a 45-year engineering career, Don Dobson has spent a lot of time working on rivers and streams, to control water flows. Much of the work in the early part of his career was spent containing water flows in places like Chilliwack and Steveston, where he worked on dikes on the Fraser River. But now Dobson is seeing a significant change in his work and it’s directly happening here

The first phase of Mission Creek Restoration is nearly complete with widening project down from Casorso Bridge to return waterway to its past historical route. in Kelowna as a large group of community partners work to restore Mission Creek to a more natural flow. “It’s kind of neat,” said Dobson, whose crew has moved one of the original dikes on Mission Creek west of the Casorso Bridge. “The engineering approaches we used in the past—which were very good from an engineering perspective of putting in works

that would contain the flow—have changed. “Now we’ve learned that there are better ways to do things. Now I’m going back in, in the latter part of my career, and actually moving dikes away from the creek, working with the creek instead of fighting it.” In this case, Dobson is working on a stretch of Mission Creek with several groups including the City

of Kelowna, the regional district and the province, the Friends of Mission Creek, the Okanagan Nation Alliance, the Westbank First Nation and the Central Okanagan Land Trust. Together these groups make up the Mission Creek Restoration Initiative (MCRI) and plan how to restore Mission Creek back to its original flows. Originally as it entered East Kelowna, Mission Creek meandered for 33 kilometres before emptying into Okanagan Lake. As the city developed and

REVIVAL FROM A1 dikes were built to control the flow, the creek changed and now hurtles over the same stretch of land in just 11 kilometres. But things are starting to change and the MCRI has nearly completed the first phase of restoring Mission Creek closer to its historical route. Working on an 800-metre stretch from the Casorso Bridge downstream, the southside dike has been moved, increasing the width between the dikes on either side of the creek from 40 metres to about 140 metres wide. That will allow Mission Creek to meander and flow more naturally as opposed to the water careening down in a straight line. “It’s important to make sure people understand we have not done anything with regard to changing the main channel,” Dobson explained. “The main channel you see while you’re standing on the Casorso Bridge will

remain like that so during (spring) freshet, when large volumes of water need to move through to the lake, it can do that efficiently. “The channel you see will still be there but it will also have the opportunity to widen out and become more natural.” The widening of Mission Creek is going to be a long process that can only take place when land owners near the creek agree to partner with the MCRI. In this case, MCRI, led by the City of Kelowna, purchased the first parcel of land from the Casorso family in 2012. The next parcel followed and by 2014 the group partnered with engineering students at UBC Okanagan who worked on the design of the new dike. Construction began last year and as of this week it is largely complete with finishing work on the dike and clean-up still to take place and in the summer (when allowed by the department of fisheries) more work will take place

to help create a few meanders. At the City of Kelowna, Todd Cashin is the man in charge of the project. Also involved with local fishery group Trout Unlimited Okanagan, Cashin first began working towards the restoration of Mission Creek in 2001 when he worked for the regional district. But it was spring of 2007 when Mission Creek saw flood levels hit a 50-year high that really signified it was time to get to work. By 2012 and ‘13, three separate flood events occurred on Mission Creek as water levels reached unprecedented levels. It’s this flooding that is the main reason for the work, along with creating better habitat for fish, and wild creatures living along the creek, said Cashin. “Absolutely everyone benefits from Mission Creek whether it’s in your homes with water quality, helping out irrigation for agriculture and supporting rainbow and kokanee fish stocks and species at risk,” said Cashin.

CONTRIBUTED

‘Absolutely everyone benefits from Mission Creek…’

Construction crews are currently working on the Mission Creek restoration project, moving back some of the creek dikes to create more waterflow space and help alleviate flooding concerns. “That stuff is all really important but in my mind what’s more important, with climate change as the big train coming at us, is Kelowna is on a flood plain. “We’ve seen flooding in other communities and we need to pay attention to that. Moving the dikes back and giving the creek some more room is an important first step.” There are many funding partners helping

to make the restoration of Mission Creek possible. The City of Kelowna had set aside $1.4 million to help with property acquisition while two major grants gave the project a serious push as MCRI and its partners were awarded a $250,000 grant from DFO and a $380,000 grant from the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund. Local fish and game clubs have gotten into the

act with Trout Unlimited donating $5,000, the Peachland Sportsmen’s Association $5,000 and the Oceola Fish and Game Club $7,500, just to name a few of the many partners. “We’ve been pretty successful in taking money and leveraging it for additional dollars,” said Cashin. “We’re quite happy with what’s happening out there with this

project. There are other pots of money out there and you need to show you are well organized and have the ability to take on these projects. “I get goose bumps talking about this project. On one hand it has taken a long time…but to actually see on the ground work is amazing. “I’m just hoping the snowball gets bigger. and this really gets going.”

All that remains is a lone poppy atop a small fir tree that is quite like no other tree (that used to be) located along Mission Creek. The poppy represents years of caring by an individual, whom at this point remains unknown but is credited with starting a tradition that touched many people who walked past the tree. The tree naturally grew on a dike near the Mission Greenway and as crews began to work to move the dike it was hard for them not to notice it. “We noticed the tree when we were doing field work and

in August it was just beautifully decorated with a back-to-school theme with ornaments that had sayings on them,” said engineer Don Dobson. “We thought it was pretty cool and then we came back later and it had been redecorated for Thanskgiving. We just said, ‘We need to save this tree. There is a history here.’” Dobson contacted the City of Kelowna parks crew who found a spot for it. Once it became necessary crews scooped it up, root-ball and all, and replanted along the fence-line of the city dog park located near the Mission sports slo-pitch fields. It didn’t take long for folks using the dog park to notice it.

“There was a lady that used to decorate it and she did it for any and all occasions,” said dog-walker Derek Hodson. “A group of us were talking about it the other day. It seems a little scruffier here. I hope the lady knows it’s here.” The tree is estimated to be about 10 years old and likely grew on its own from seed, said Dobson, who said his crews were careful in the relocation. “They protected it as they were doing the construction right up until we finally had to move it,” he said. “When you think about Remembrance Day, it’s kind of poignant that it’s just one poppy because it stands out on that tree. We were very careful

the poppy was still there when we planted it.” For Hodson, the tree conjures up many memories and represents what’s good in people. “I was surprised to see it here, I just thought they would probably knock it down,” he said. “But they must have thought it was something special. It’s nice someone is actually thinking about that. “A lot of people saw it along the trail. I saw a lot of kids and families looking at it. “No one ever removed any of the decorations. They were all left which is saying something isn’t it?” @KP_media1

A wide variety of food and drink could be sampled by those attending the kick-off Wednesday night at Okanagan College for the Thompson-Okanagan region’s annual Dine Around.

GOLDEN RICHES

Are you ready to dine around the ThompsonOkanagan region? That’s the question area restaurants will be asking over the next 2 1/2 weeks as the annual Dine Around takes place here, featuring 55 restaurants from Kamloops to Osoyoos—including Kelowna—that will offer diners three-course meals for $15, $25, $35 and,new this year, $45 per plate. Event co-ordinator Christina Ferreira said in addition to increasing the number of participating restaurants this year to 55 from last year’s 35, the B.C. Craft Brewers Guild has jumped on board, joining area wineries to participate in food pairings. Ferreira said the event not only helps restaurant during a traditionally slow time of the year,it also allow diners to check out restaurants they may not have heard of or have found too expensive to eat at in the past. The event includes all levels of restaurants serving specially created menus for the event. The kick-off event saw 325 people sample what 17 of the local participating restaurants will have on their Dine Around menus between now and Feb. 7. Also on hand at the Okanagan College venue were wineries and breweries from around the region whose products will be paired with the food served by the restaurants. During last year’s event, more than 5,000 meals were ordered off the Dine Around menus across the Thompson-Okanagan during the 18-day event.

Extra 14 costly for Peachland Alistair Waters awaters@kelownacapnews

Fourteen people in Peachland will cost the municipality $651,600 this year. That’s how much using the RCMP as its police force will cost the municipality in 2016 because the population is now 5,013 according to B.C. Stats, 14 more than the cutoff for having policing costs covered by the province. In B.C., municipalities with populations between 5,000 and 14,999 pay 70 per cent of RCMP contract costs while municipalities with populations larger than 15,000 pay 90 per cent. The remaining 30 per cent and 10 per cent respectively are paid by the federal government. Municipalities with less than 5,000 residents do contribute a small amount to policing when they use the RCMP but the province covers most of the cost. And to make matters worse for Peachland, 2016 marks the first

year the full 70 per cent share will have to come out of the annual taxes collected. While Peachland’s population has been over 5,000 for the last five years, the policing costs there have been offset by tapping into a reserve fund set prior to 2012 to help pay the bigger bill. “This is the first year that won’t happen,” said Doug Pryde, finance director for the municipality, adding the offset was set up to only

be a five-year program. According to B.C. stats, Peachland was the only municipality in the Central Okanagan to see a decrease in its population in last year, dropping 1.5 per cent to 5,013 from 5,088 in 2014. Kelowna remains the largest city in the Okanagan with a population of 124,378 up 2.3 per cent from 121,529 in 2014, while West Kelowna is now the third largest city in the valley with a population

of 34,484, up 5.3 per cent from the previous year. Vernon with a population in 2015 of 40,497 is second and Penticton dropped to fourth in the Okanagan in 2015 with 33,964 residents, the result of a with a 0.3 per cent drop. The Central Okanagan Regional District grew 3.2 per cent in 2015 to 189,480, keeping it the third largest metropolitan area in B.C after Greater Vancouver and the area around Victoria.

City in action Timely details about what’s going on

Pedestrian & bicycle master plan

Council received the draft Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan, which outlines a strategic approach for achieving a transportation mode shift in our City. The goal is to establish walking and cycling as safe and convenient alternative modes of travel. Residents can review the proposed active transportation network, steps for implementation and provide feedback on the plan at kelowna.ca/onthemove.

Telus building development

Council approved a Development Permit for a two-storey office support building to house Telus Communications at 1010 Ellis Street. Sitting on the corner of Ellis and Manhattan Drive, the new building and its site design will positively enhance the adjacent park interface with Sunset Park, include riparian area plantings to enhance Brandt’s Creek and also include landscape improvements along the streetscape. The development will be responsible to build a missing public sidewalk section along Manhattan Drive.

Leachate treatment system

Council approved the amended expenditure of $336,500 ($136,000 new, from the landfill reserve) to enter into a cost sharing agreement with McKinley Hillside Limited to upgrade the leachate treatment system. The McKinley Beach developer is required to construct a sanitary collection system to subdivide his properties, including a lift station in the proximity of the landfill. This created a unique opportunity for the City and the developer to work together to improve the method in which the City treats and manages its leachate (e.g. reduce odor and othe hazards), and for both parties to reduce costs. kelowna.ca/council

Public Hearing Notice is given that City Council will hold a Public Hearing on: Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 6pm Kelowna City Hall, 1435 Water Street Council Chambers

Council will hear representations from the public who deem an interest in the properties affected by proposed amendments to Official Community Plan 2030 Bylaw 10500 and Zoning Bylaw 8000 for: 160 Gibbs Road W Lot 4, Section 26, Township 26, ODYD, Plan 12452 Bylaw No. 11183 (Z15-0055)

Up to a 3.5% tax increase eyed for West Kelowna Sawyer Klassen sawyer.klassen@kelownacapnews.com

West Kelowna residents can expect to see a three to 3.5 per cent tax increase this year. Council went through the first portion of the proposed 2016 budget at a special council meeting Tuesday, and heard a recommendation from staff for a three per cent tax hike, plus an additional .5 per cent added on to that for recreational reserves. Council was divided on the .5 per cent proposal, as Mayor Doug Findlater and Coun. Duane Ophus were opposed to it, Coun. Bryden Winsby was in favour, and Couns. Rusty Ensign and Carol Zanon wanted to defer until all council was present for a vote. Couns. Rosalind Neis and Rick de Jong were absent from Tuesday’s meeting.

“Some members of council have proposed that a .5 per cent tax increase for a recreation reserve, starting now,” explained Findlater. “The money would go into reserves on an annual basis, which would be over $100,000. That will be rediscussed in February when we discuss the budget and put the finishing touches on these things. For a major decision like this, I think we should have a full council.” Of the many projects and expenditures council looked over, only one item wasn’t approved for the budget. The creation of a Facilities Master Plan was deferred to 2017, with the $65,000 budgeted for it to be placed back into reserves, with Winsby and Ensign the only votes against that move. “I think there’s a realization that major

recreation facilities are really not on the horizon for the next few years,” Findlater said. “We can safely defer the cost of doing that for at least another year. “We’re not going to be building an H2O centre or an arena or

anything very soon. Those things can become dated quite quickly, so council decided to leave it until we were closer to doing it,” Findlater said. The 10-year capital plan saw continued support from council, with $10.2 million in

Big power bill increase within ‘normal parameters’ for BC Hydro To the editor: At the end of 2015, I reviewed my power consumption at the condo. I was curious to see the savings realized as I replaced the 1995 appliances and light bulbs with 2015 energy efficient equipment. In January 2015, I removed but did not replace an ancient upright freezer. I live alone with my cat.

LETTER OF THE WEEK Much to my surprise, the energy consumption (6,900 kwh) increased more than 500 kwh over any of the previous six years.

I contacted BC Hydro to check the Smart Meter and for any explanation. According to a BC Hydro agent, “energy consumption was within normal parameters.” As far as they were concerned, the status quo was in place. I wrote to the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) for help. They requested BC Hydro to review their records and to report. BC Hydro did and even suggested ‘phantom power’ could account for the increase. Again, no recognition of the appliance upgrade. I asked BC Hydro to replace the smart meter. No response. BCUC did suggest I hire an electrician to check the wiring, conduct a breaker test and contact BC Hydro to request a Measurement Canada meter test

Things that are going well in B.C. In the early days of this new year, readers have advised me to Victoria News do several things. I’ll go with one that seems relatively painless, embracing the “sunny ways” of TOM our new federal government and FLETCHER seeking optimism in these fragile times. For starters, we have a building boom going on in the southwest. Here in Victoria, cranes dot the skyline as new residential-commercial projects emerge from bedrock, and hardhats are mostly on construction workers, scratched and backwards, rather than shiny and forward on politicians. Shipyards are busy, with Royal Canadian Navy work and cruise ship refits to reduce their emissions, plus work on ferries, tugboats and barges. Most of the activity is private investment, much of it in a hot housing market. Surrey has just recorded its second-highest total for building permits in history, a value of $1.46 billion nearly matching the pre-recession peak of 2007. Thousands of provincial employees get a small raise in February, based on stronger than forecast economic growth in 2014. It works out to $300 a

year for a medical technologist and $346 for a teacher. Health care costs are rising less dramatically. That should ease the crisis atmosphere at provincial and federal health ministers’ negotiations over the funding formula, taking place this week in Vancouver. Health Minister Terry Lake announced last week that the province is increasing funding for a promising program in cancer research, using genetic analysis to improve targeting for drugs to treat the hundreds of different cancers diagnosed in B.C. patients each year. The B.C. Cancer Agency’s new director, Dr. Malcolm Moore, oncologist Dr. Janessa Laskin and Dr. Marco Marra, director of the agency’s Genome Science Centre, described a world-leading centre of research that is reaching out to specialists and their patients across the province and attracting international funding and talent for groundbreaking research. Outside the urban regions, where retail sales and real estate mainly drive the economy, sunny ways are harder to find. The mining and natural

gas sectors are in the grip of a slump in commodity prices, with more temporary mine closures expected. The forest industry is being helped by the low Canadian dollar and a steady recovery in the U.S. economy, and tourism is expected to have another strong year as Americans take advantage of a discount on visits to B.C. Central 1 Credit Union broke down the regional employment numbers for B.C. in 2015, and found job growth in every region except the Cariboo. Province-wide employment grew 1.2 per cent last year, ahead of the national rate. That may not sound like much, but compared to Alberta’s oil-dependent economy, it’s pretty good. Construction of a new dam on the Peace River is expected to ramp up this year, bringing workers home from Alberta, and the federal government is planning to fast-track its promised infrastructure spending to create work across the country. Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett was in Toronto last week to ring the opening bell at the stock exchange with B.C. mining industry representatives. Not much sun on mining stocks these days, but

More than one resident must complain before RDCO bylaws respond

‘Efficient’ upgrades lead to more power consumption

To the editor: The Regional District of Central Okanagan chief administrative officer told me that when I make a bylaw complaint about a nuisance, and it is not a safety issue, like for instance; junk on a property, a barking dog or an at-large dog, etc., that more than one property needs to make a complaint, and that the regional district can’t do anything about these things unless more than one property complains, and that it is like that for everyone. I am also told it may take RDCO months or years to deal with junk on property,

depending on if the junk is in full view or partially hidden from view. The RDCO CAO told me that video of an at-large dog is not evidence of a dog atlarge, because video can be manipulated. He said that two properties need to make a complaint about an at-large dog, because an at-large dog is not a safety issue. He told me that an at-large dog is only a safety issue if it is attacking. The entire conversation I had with the RDCO CAO was unbelievable. Sharon Schnurr, Kelowna

CONCERNED CITIZEN

Get rid of racism, greed and we’ll have a model country To the editor: I am tired of hearing that the falling value of the Canadian dollar is good for the economy. It only helps the big corporations catering to tourists. We need to get back to having a liveable wage for our service workers. The top major retailers in 2011 controlled $196 billion in sales, paying low wages and limiting full time employment by using part time help. This denies the benefits of full-time. The number of foreign retailers increased by 53 per cent in 2011. The top CEOs, in 2009, had a salary increase of 22 per cent from the average salary of $8.5 million. We need to stop the combines like the oil and gas moguls that control our economy. It would make more sense to build pipelines for water too. Supply water to drought areas and control flooding. Our banks, in my opinion do nothing for the common worker, their solution is keep our dollar low and try to convince us that

solves the problem. We need a more effective monetary system, one not based on some hunk of metal buried in a vault. We need better control of the distribution of our money. Mr. Trudeau is suggesting taxing the rich, but so far does nothing for the menial task worker. We need controls that prevent excessive income controlled by greed. We need to give up the idea that charity is the answer. Let’s get rid of capitalism in its present form. Build a country that offers a good quality of life to all Canadians. Get rid of racism and greed. We do owe the First Nations victims of the forced schooling and molesting more than an apology or a neverending restitution. We should consider paying those proven victims a life-time annuity. We have a wonderful country with all the resources to be completely independent and build a model country for the world to follow.

Coalition uniting cat lovers to help feral felines Kathy Michaels Concerned cat lovers tentatively joined forces last year to discuss the growing number of feral felines living in dangerous circumstances throughout the Central Okanagan. And last weekend, they took the first real step toward humanely solving what they have deemed a “cat crisis.” The Okanagan Cat Coalition—comprised of volunteers from the Okanagan Humane Society, the Kelowna SPCA, The Responsible Animal Care Society and Alley Cats Alliance— held their first training workshop on cat foster care, humane trapping, medical treatment and building shelters for outdoor cats, said coalition volunteer coordinator Romany Runnalls. The skills gleaned in the workshops will help the coalition in its efforts to trap, neuter, vaccinate and release/ rehome cats they’ve targeted—all techniques used successfully in cities around the world to reduce feral cat populations. Runnals explained that the coalition has spent the months since they first formed to map the cat populations from Winfield to Peachland, and they’ve found there’s an estimated 700 in the region.

The Okanagan Cat Coalition held their first training workshop last weekend dealing with issues such as cat foster care, humane trapping, medical treatment and building shelters for outdoor cats. Colonies can be found anywhere from rural fields, alleyways, or just on the fringes of suburban neighbourhoods. “We’ve used a program called Catmapper that was developed by a researcher at Dalhousie University for dealing with feral cat communities around the world,” said Runnalls. “With the program we get a good idea where the cats are geographically and that there are clusters.” Roughly 300 of those cats are within a couple

mile radius of Ben Lee Park. There are also high concentrations in West Kelowna and colonies of 30 to 50 cats in Winfield. “Some people, for whatever reason, haven’t gone through process of spaying or neutering their animals…then if they are dumped or left behind, those cats come together in colonies and and breed and you get almost feral generations of cats,” Runnalls said. “Usually we are just one or two generations of kittens in, and they are not untameable in most

cases.” Others, that are older and more skittish, can’t be socialized. The coalition intends to trap those untameable cats, get them fixed and vaccinated and return them to the area they’re from, assuming they’ve found a contact person who will be willing to continue feeding and sheltering the creature. The aim is simply to stop the colonies from growing because these

cats, no matter how many generations from being a pet they are, don’t have the skills to live in the wild. The cats are facing short, often painful, lives succumbing to the elements or to creatures higher up the food chain, like coyotes, said Runnalls. Those predators are being lured in higher numbers into residential neighbourhoods to feed on feral cats, putting even

domesticated creatures at higher risk. In upcoming weeks, the skills of 45 volunteers gleaned at the weekend training session will be put to use, as they want to get a jump on the problem before breeding season really gets underway. Runnalls said there’s still lots of room for area cat lovers to chip in and help, if they want to. “Our critical need is foster homes,” she said.

ADVOCATE FOR TESTING

Vitamin D critical to pet dogs and cats Cats and dogs with low vitamin D are more likely to have cancer, heart disease and inflammatory bowl disease, says a Kelowna veterinarian. Holistic vet Dr. Jason Rowan is advocating for affordable vitamin D testing, so pets can lead longer and healthier lives. Insufficient vitamin D is linked with serious pet illness, such as heart disease, certain types of cancer such as mast cell tumours of the skin and spleen cancer, and inflammatory bowel disease. Veterinarians in the eastern USA are noticing that most dogs contracting dog flu have lower vitamin D levels. In humans, insufficient levels of vitamin D have also been linked to heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and asthma.  Dogs and cats, unlike humans and most other species, are unable to convert very much vitamin D in their skin when exposed to the sun.

“Pets only get vitamin D through their diet, in rich foods like fish oils and liver,” explained Rowan. “Although most commercial foods will have levels high enough to prevent rickets, they don’t have sufficient vitamin D to prevent chronic diseases like cancer.” Rowans says vitamin D deficiency has been traditionally associated with rickets, the disease of rubbery bones. However, he notes current studies in human and veterinary medicine show that even if an animal is getting enough vitamin D to stave off rickets, they may not be getting enough to avoid other chronic and fatal diseases. “Pets only get vitamin D through their diet, in rich foods like fish oils and liver. Although most commercial foods will have levels high enough to prevent rickets, they don’t have sufficient vitamin D to prevent chronic diseases like cancer,” Rowan said. As vitamin D can be toxic in

excess, pet owners should be careful not to supplement vitamin D in their pet’s diet without first doing a blood test to determine how much their pet needs. Rowan said too much of the supplement can also lead to serious bone structure issues over the long term. Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital is the first veterinary clinic in the Okanagan to offer affordable vitamin D testing with pet-specific supplements, through a partnership with a cutting edge laboratory in the United States. “Our clinic is all about preventative medicine and staying healthy,” said Rowan. “We consider accurate vitamin D supplementation a powerful tool to prevent pet cancer and disease.” For more information, contact Dr. Jason Rowan, Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital, at 778-4787088 or info@pandosyvet.com, or check out the website PandosyVet. com.

A few large rocks have fallen along the Paul’s Tomb trail. The trail will be temporarily closed until City of Kelowna crews and a geotechnical expert are able to assess the situation and safely clearup the debris. The closure is between the Ogopogo trail and the northern end of the Paul’s Tomb trail. The city asks that park and trails users avoid this area until city crews determine when it is safe to re-open. There are signs indicating the closure at both ends of Paul’s Tomb trail. All other trails at Knox Mountain Park are available for use.

With 2015 coming to an end, Braam said there was considerable sales movement in the $400,000 to $550,000 range, but the higher end market above those price points remained sluggish. “There is a lot of inventory in the higher end of the market and people are looking more to downsize. The bottom end of the market has not changed a great deal in price even during the recession, while the higher end properties have seen bigger percentage price drops in T:1.31” those years,” he said. He hopes for new

Royal LePage says the pace of house price inflation seen in Toronto and Vancouver markets will “return to earth” this year. But how that translates for Kelowna is a changing demographic in buyers looking for property in the Central Okanagan. “I think in relation to here in terms of what happens in Vancouver, you will continue to see China investors buying in that market,” said Francis Braam, broker/owner for Kelowna Royal LePage. “That will continue I think in a large way, and people are in turn looking to cash out of that market and move elsewhere.” Braam notes that whatever we might think locally of Kelowna housing prices, for a seller in Vancouver it still represents a lot of bang for their buck. On the national side, Royal LePage president and chief executive officer Phil Soper says while most of the country will see house price appreciation, where real estate appreciation has significantly outpaced job and wage growth, namely Greater Vancouver and Greater Toronto, an adjustment will likely be seen in 2016. “Through the recent period of depressed oil prices, property prices in Canada’s energy centric regions, particularly Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador, were more resilient than most onlookers had expected,” Soper said. “Consumers, reluctant to sell their homes at what they perceived to be a discount to their true value, simply withdrew from the market, resulting in steady house prices and a drop in unit sales volume. In the coming year, we expect to see

the delayed impacts of the slowing economy and rising unemployment… with moderate declines in home values for cities such as Calgary.” For Kelowna, the Alberta buying influx made up 18 per cent of the real estate sales, which is not much less than the 22 per cent mark in 2014 when the oil industry was booming, says Braam. What he sees happening with many Albertan homeowners in their early 50s, the largest Canadian population demographic in Canada, is they have done well in the last decade, are set up for early retirement so why not do it now and move to the Okanagan. “If they have nothing to gain by working for another three, four or five years, with the economy there slowing down, why not retire and move to Kelowna?” Braam says while buyers are eying up Kelowna in looking to sell their Greater Vancouver homes, the Chinese investors are also becoming more aware of what the Central Okanagan has to offer. “We have two people in our firm now who only work the China investment market for us and both of them are doing well,” Braam noted. He said Lower Mainland brokers have told him the flow of sellers relocating from Greater Vancouver started with people moving to Langley, then to Chilliwack, and now to the Okanagan along with Vancouver Island communities. And as that real estate flow moves into the Fraser Valley on the coast, housing prices rise, giving homeowners pause to consider moving elsewhere, such as to smaller communities like Kelowna, West Kelowna

Columnist regrets negative insights into autobody work “A person in your position should become a little better informed before writing such an ignorant article that tries to tarnish a whole industry.” Those biting words came to me from Dale, a reader of my last column who has been in the autobody business since 1979. To illustrate “accelerated depreciation” (the

Achieving Justice PAUL HERGOTT reduction of a vehicle’s market value arising from a crash requiring repairs of $2,000 or more), I shared two personal examples where the paint on repaired areas of vehicles had faded or

peeled over time. It’s examples like those that we experience personally or hear about from others that lead to a “marketplace” fear that repairs do not return a vehicle 100 per cent to its pre-crash state This fear results in a depreciation of value. It had not occurred to me that my column might cause those in the

autobody industry to feel maligned. That was shortsighted of me. Dale shared with me that he often has to “dumb down” the finish of paint jobs he performs in his autobody business so that the repaired area does not stand out—looking shinier and smoother than the substandard original paint. He noted his personal example of having repainted his own,

damaged truck 10 years ago, and the repainted area is still indistinguishable from the original. According to Dale, ending up with a prematurely fading paint job is the result of a “poor consumer choice in the decision of which repair shop to trust your vehicle to.” He’s right, of course. Just like every industry, there are those who are leaders of quality

and service (like Dale) and those who are substandard. But he felt the implication in my column painted the entire industry with the same brush (pun intended). The point was really brought home to me when I read a CBC article: “Hall of Shame: ICBC reveals top fraud files of 2015.” A handful of egregious examples of fraud are listed, followed by ICBC’s estimate that “10 to 20 per cent of auto insurance claims contain an element of fraud or exaggeration.” I bristle at such articles, and estimates, because of the broad brush impact they have on public perception. I live and breathe the struggle to achieve fair, financial compensation on behalf of innocent victims who regularly come to me saying “all I really care about is that my actual medical

expenses are reimbursed” after funding for their care has been unfairly cut off. Yes, some people “milk” ICBC claims just like some people shoplift and cheat on their taxes, but highlighting that small minority has such a damaging and hurtful impact on public perception of the vast majority who are simply struggling to get better and achieve justice. Unlike my ignorance as to the impact my column might have on public perception of the autobody industry, ICBC is keenly aware of the impact of information releases like the one leading to the CBC article.  I apologize, sincerely, for the inadvertent impact of my column, and I rhetorically ask: Will you apologize as well, ICBC?

A new take on the theme of the classic movie ”The Red Balloon”

This month, the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra welcomes

Canadian guest pianist Angela Cheng to perform for the first time with the OSO. “Inspired by the intense creativity of Paris, we perform music inspired by poetry, love and jazz.  Debussy’s symphonic poem Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun captures the sultry poetry of Mallarmé showing off our principal flute, Christine Moore,” said Rosemary Thomson, music director of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra. “With its syncopated rhythm Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G incorporates the tremendous influence of jazz on Paris of the 1920’s. “In his L’Arlesienne Suite, (the girl from Arles) Georges Bizet was inspired by the folk songs and dances of his native France, most famously, the rousing Farandole.  “This evocative music will have us all humming, tapping toes and falling in love with that ‘je ne sais quoi.’” Consistently praised for her brilliant technique, tonal beauty and superb musicianship, Cheng is one of her country’s national treasures. In addition to regular guest appearances with virtually every orchestra in Canada, she has also performed with many symphonies in the U.S. In the spring of 2012, Cheng made her highly acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut with the Edmonton Symphony.  She also made her debut at the prestigious Salzburg Festival in a recital with Pinchas Zukerman during the summer of 2012.  Highlights this coming season include the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Sinfonia Toronto, Vancouver Symphony and the Winnipeg Symphony. Cheng has been gold medalist of the Arthur

Rubinstein International Piano Masters Competition, as well as the first Canadian to win the prestigious Montreal International Piano Competition. Her other awards include the Canada Council’s coveted Career Development Grant and the Medal of Excellence for outstanding interpretations of Mozart from the Mozarteum in Salzburg. The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is the third largest professional Symphony Orchestra in British Columbia.To learn more about the OSO, check ou the website okanagansymphony.com

DIRTY OLD GRANDPA

No award winner for De Niro Robert De Niro has been in numerous “R” rated films over the years, largely due to the portrayl of violence. But in the case of Dirty Grandpa, his latest ‘R” rated move goes in a different direction as a raunchy comedy. De Niro plays a recently widowed veteran who tricks his uptight adult grandson (Zac Efron) into going on a road trip for spring break in Florida. As the title would indicate, expect a lot of foul language and content typical of a party comedy. It will likely not win De Niro any more awards and while he has done numerous comedies over the years, this looks like an interesting departure for the long-time actor. After being released in a limited number of theatres in Canada last weekend, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi gets a wider release this weekend. Most of us have heard about Benghazi as it has been politicized in the United States, but most probably do not know the whole story of what happened. The movie tells that story, about six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a US diplomatic compound on Sept. 11, 2012. Director Michael Bay is best known for his big budget popcorn movies like Armageddon, Transformers and Pearl Harbour, but 13 Hours is a more serious effort to show the intensity of battle and that it is gritty and not glamorous. The 5th Wave is yet another attempt to cash in the popularity of adapting popular young adult novels into movies. In this case, Chloe Grace Moretz stars as a young woman trying to save her younger brother from an imminent alien invasion. The first four waves of aliens have all but destroyed normal life on Earth and the fifth wave could be the deadliest. The Boy is a creepy sounding supernatural thriller about a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote village in the United Kingdom. Upon arrival, she learns that

RICK DAVIS the child she was hired to care for is actually a life-size porcelain doll that the parents treat like a real boy to cope with the death of their son 20 years earlier. After she ignores a list

of strict rules, she starts experiencing disturbing events that lead her to believe that the doll may be more alive than she originally thought. The Masked Saint is based on true events surrounding former professional wrestler Chris Samuels, who retires from the ring to settle down as a small town pastor.

After he witnesses rampant problems in the community, he decides to moonlight as a masked vigilante. While he struggles with crisis at both home and the church, Samuel must also reconcile his secret, violent identity with his calling as a pastor. The late wrestler Roddy Piper makes his final appearance in this film and the movie is dedicated to his memory.

Guthrie takes aim at Olympics in Rio this summer

Rockets settle in for lengthy homestand

Warren Henderson

whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

In 2016, Evan Guthrie hopes all paths will ultimately lead to Rio. The 24-year-old mountain biker from Peachland will pour the majority of his energy this year into earning a seat on Canada’s team for the Olympic Games in Brazil. “I’m aiming big,” Guthrie said of his quest for an Olympic berth. “I’ve been dreaming about (the Olympics) for a long time, so it’s time to make a push and shoot for the stars. I’m believing in myself every day and training hard.” The 2008 and 2009 national junior champion, Guthrie is heading into his third full season on the senior cross country mountain biking circuit. In 2014, he finished fifth overall at nationals, just 20 seconds shy of a bronze medal. Last summer, in 2015, he was close again with a fourthplace showing at the Canadian championships in St. Felicien, Que. With two years of senior competition under his belt, Guthrie feels prepared and motivated to take his racing to another level. “It’s a big step up to senior, there are so many barriers at this level, you can’t help but learn from the older riders… it’s pretty motivating,”

Guthrie said. “This year I’ve trained a lot more, trying to improve certain aspects of my racing. “Sometimes it takes 12 to 24 months for your training to pay off, but I feel like I’m in a good place. “You set the bar high and dreams start to become reality,” he said. “It’s a cool thing when that happens.” One aspect of Guthrie’s mountain biking that doesn’t need any upgrading is his passion for the sport. A love of the outdoors and being physically active have been two key ingredients in his success to date. “I love the sport, number one, because it’s fun,” said Guthrie. “I’m outside and there’s nothing I’d rather be doing. Over time, doing what I’m doing has just created that passion and a pursuit of bigger goals.” Whether Guthrie earns one of two spots on Canada’s team for the Olympics will ultimately hinge on how he performs in major international events this season. He’ll compete in his first World Cup in April in Australia. After two more World Cups in May in Germany and France, Guthrie will head to the world championships in the Czech Republic. And even if he doesn’t

“You want to get those wins at home as much as you can, and you want to make it a hard place to play,” said Merkley, who had two goals and two assists in Tuesday’s win over the Cougars, “so we’re going to try and do that this coming month.” Michael Herringer, who has played seven consecutive games, remains the starter in goal for the Rockets as Jackson Whistle remains sidelined on a week-to-week basis with ailing hips. Forward Rodney Southam, who has been sidelined since Dec. 16 with a lower body injury, could be ready for a return to the lineup this weekend. The Rockets will host the Medicine Hat Tigers on Saturday.

Rockets home to Tri-City and Medicine Hat this weekend.

Peachland’s Evan Guthrie has a busy year planned on the international mountain biking circuit. qualify for Rio this summer, Guthrie assures the Olympic dream will remain alive and well. “I’m still young and no matter what happens, I plan to be pursuing this through the next cycle (2020),” he said. “I’m in a position now

where pursuing an Olympic berth this year is something that’s not unreasonable at all. I guess that’s wvhy I feel good about my chances.” Based on his own experiences in sports, Guthrie is an also avid supporter of young local

athletes who, like himself, are striving to reach their goals. Guthrie will connect with many of those athletes on Feb. 10 as the guest speaker during the Community Sport Hero Awards at the Rotary Centre for the Arts.

The Kelowna Rockets are already wellacquainted with Prospera Place. The defending WHL champs will know it even better over the next 2 1/2 weeks, with nine of 10 games being played on home ice. On Friday night, the Rockets will take on the Tri-City Americans in the second game of a current five-game homestand. After playing 25 of their first 44 games on the road, head coach Brad Ralph said the spate of home games comes at a key time in the schedule. “This is an important time of year, you see everyone playing tight hockey and jockeying for position in the standings,” said Ralph. “This is an opportunity for us to take advantage of the situation, and it’s important for us to make the most of it.” The Rockets (3111-3-0) opened the homestand Tuesday with a 7-4 win over Prince George, maintaining their lead atop the Western Conference. But with teams like the Everett Silvertips and Victoria Royals in hot pursuit, forward Nick Merkley piling up points during the home stretch is even more crucial to the Rockets.

MIDTERM RANKINGS…

Three Rockets were cited in NHL Central Scouting’s midterm rankings of North American skaters, released this week. Forward Dillon Dube is rated 35th, defenceman Lucas Johansen is 38th, while Czech-born winger Tomas Soustal is ranked 152nd among players eligible for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Heat adds Langley attacker

KSS girls 4th at Centennial

Brookwood’s Wyatt Gilbert will play post secondary soccer in Kelowna next season. Wyatt Gilbert, a 6-foot2 winger from Langley’s Brookswood Secondary, has signed on with the UBC Okanagan Heat for the 2016 Canada West men’s soccer season. Gilbert, who plays in the B.C. Soccer Premier League with the Surrey U17s, is ready to make an offensive contribution with his first university team. “I expect to play an attacking role at UBCO whether it be striker, attacking mid, or the wings. I have been

playing on the wing since U13,” Gilbert said. Gilbert’s Brookswood team won the Fraser Valley’s tournament and made the provincial tournament his year, though Wyatt was unable to participate as he had suffered a broken foot. Through his play with Surrey United, Wyatt has had an opportunity to play in the national tournament, which should be a big advantage in terms of dealing with the much higher level of

competition that he’ll be facing once he becomes a member of the Heat. Gilbert says he chose UBC Okanagan’s soccer a program in part because t of Heat head coach Dante r Zanatta. “He’s my style of c coach,” says Wyatt, “he m knows when to push his G guys, and understands how to get the best out q s of what he’s got.” d Zanatta is pleased O with the addition of Gilbert, a player he feels R J can be a successful attacking player for s UBC Okanagan in the future after charting his M development for the past T three years. “Each year he has improved his game, as an attacking player, a position that we need to get better at, I believe that he has the tools to have a very good CIS player.” Breaking down his recruit, Zanatta explains that “Wyatt has good speed, comfortable on the ball, a nose for the net and has the determination to be better each time he steps on the pitch which is crucial for a players development and we hope to help him on his journey.”

KIJHL Chiefs host Grand Forks Border Bruins tonight The Kelowna Chiefs will settle into the friendly surroundings of Rutland Arena this weekend for a pair of KIJHL games. Tonight, the Grand Forks Border Bruins will pay a visit to Kelowna in a 7 p.m. face off. On Sunday, the North

Okanagan Knights will provide the opposition. The Chiefs ended a four-game losing streak Wednesday night with a 5-1 win over the hometown Princeton Posse. Jace Woodley led the Kelowna attack with a

Michelle Kraetzer and Connor Hobbs of the Telemark Racers will represent Zone 2 in cross country skiing at next month’s B.C. Winter Games in Penticton. The two local athletes qualified by placing second in their respective divisions at the Teck Okanagan Cup Classic Race in Revelstoke on Jan. 2. Also earning secondary spots are Grayson McKinnon (4th) and Tristan Lee (5th) in 2002

midget boys, and Carter Fortney (4th) in 2001 juvenile boys. Kraetzer felt great the whole race and was able to push herself to a second-place and personal-best finish in the juvenile girls 2001 division. Hobbs was a topfive finisher most of last season in his midget boys 2002 division. He skied his way to second place, 37 seconds behind the formidable Stephan Moore of Larch Hills.

Twenty athletes from Revelstoke, Salmon Arm, Kamloops, Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton will represent Zone 2 in cross country at the 2016 BC Winter Games. The Zone 2 team will be coached by Randi Ostby, Keith Hepburn, both of the Larch Hills Racers, and assisted by Adam Elliot of the Telemark Racers.

Ringette Force to reckon with The TORL U16 AA Force ringette team shook off the jet lag from a trip to Finland with a strong performance at the 2016 Esso Golden Ring tournament last weekend in Calgary. The Force reached the semifinals before losing to the eventual tournament champs, Calgary Blue, by a score of 8-4. Vernon’s Alyssa Racine led the offense with two goals and an assist. The Force, made up of Kelowna, Vernon and Shuswap players, were up against some of the best competition in the nation, finishing third in their pool with a 1-2 record.

The TORL girls advanced to the quarterfinals where they overcame a late two-goal deficit to defeat a team from Edmonton 6-5 in overtime. Coach Warren Carter led one of the best showings by a TORL AA team at this tournament in years. In the opening game, a 9-4 win over Zone 4 Sting, Kelowna’s Delainey Gregory led the way with three goals and two assists. TORL then lost 6-3 to St. Albert and 7-3 to Calgary Apex. Kelowna’s Kate Meraw scored three goals over the two

games. Next up for the Force is the Sweetheart tournament in Kelowna in early February. TORL will play in the provincials in mid-March, then at the nine-team Canadian championships in April in London, ON.

Five Kelowna U14 skiers loaded up on some hardware last weekend at the BC Teck series races at Sun Peaks near Kamloops. In the boys’ division, Saturday’s GS and slalom races produced two identical podium finishes, with Isaac Athans winning two gold medals, Luke McMillan claiming a pair of silver medals, and Devin Blaser capturing a pair of bronze medals. Blaser wasn’t finished there, and on Sunday was on the podium again with a pair of first-place finishes. He also won silver and bronze medals in the overall competition, sharing the podium with

higher learning ____________________________________________________________ OKANAGAN COLLEGE

Boeing predicts a global industry demand for 609,000 aircraft maintenance technicians over the next 20 years, making it the most indemand occupation in the aviation industry. Locally the demand is echoed at KF Aerospace, Kelowna’s largest privately owned employer. Over the last four years, the company that boasts over 500 employees in Kelowna has hired 29 of Okanagan College’s Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Structures (AME-S) graduates (including the entire 2014 class), representing more than a quarter of their AME-S technicians labour force. Those looking to have their career take flight within a year can still apply before the Feb. 1 intake of the AME-S certificate program at the college. Students are taught everything they need to become structures technicians that work on the skin and frame of an aircraft. “Knowing I could finish classes and there was a high probability of a job right away was reassuring, and validated my choice in taking this program,” said 32-yearold Shael Riendeau, who completed the college’s AME-S certificate program in December and

started work immediately at KF Aerospace. “It’s not just a job, it’s a career, and in less than one year I was able to apply, take the program, graduate, and get hired,” he said. A career in the aircraft industry may have been written in the stars for Riendeau; his grandfather was a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force for 25 years. As such he was always exposed to planes when growing up, and found them fascinating. While being an AME is a craftsman job, many are drawn to the industry for its cleanliness, job security, and work-life balance. In class students learn aircraft design, construction, installations, repairs and work with composite materials. The curriculum is up to date with high tech modern equipment and follows strict Transport Canada guidelines. Partnering with industry to connect grads with employers is a pillar of Okanagan College’s success. Uniquely, the AME-S program is taught at the Kelowna airport sharing hangar space with KF Aerospace. “It’s a real dialogue between the college, KF Aerospace and other industry stakeholders to ensure our students

are exposed to the latest technologies, regulations, and standards,” said Dale Martell, Okanagan College AME program chair. For Riendeau, this translated to an education that was hands-on and prepared him for a job. “There’s a lot of shop time and you practice all your hand-skills such as riveting, drilling, and accuracy continuously.” He adds that going on tours of KF Aerospace throughout the year was a great way to develop a solid idea of what the job would entail upon graduation and to build a rapport with those whom he now calls colleagues. “They’d take us on tours when they had an interesting project in the hangar,” explained Riendeau. “I remember once they were adding a cargo door to the body of an airplane that previously didn’t have one, that was really cool. Being able to ask

questions and integrate this learning into my education was definitely an asset.” “By sharing our facility with the college, we see the students, who are potential hires, evolve to develop the precision skills needed to be jobready in helping make planes safe to fly,” said Grant Stevens, director of human resources at KF Aerospace. “As a nice synergy, by the time we are ready to interview them they too have a foundation in who we are as a company, what we do, and what we look for. “At KF Aerospace we hire for the long-term, and while we hire from all over Canada, hiring locally ensures that these individual are here for the long haul, as they have established roots in the region.” See more information about the AME-S program online at okanagan.bc.ca/ame.

Early morning at a train station in Berlin: Coffee for some while waiting, but not for Remy.

Europe a paws-itive experience for tiny dog Maria Sciullo contributor

AMSTERDAM—Have dog, will travel. Planning a recent visit to see my daughter in Germany, we decided Amsterdam would check off all the boxes of a great side trip. History? Sightseeing? Great food, drink? All there. But what would it be like if we brought along Remy, her tiny 2-year-old papillon? Would we be hindered in our choice of restaurants? Could he enter shops? What about museums, or the Anne Frank House? Happily, “yes” to just about any restaurant

or store. Reasonably, “no” to museums and historic sites. But that was all right; Remy was a well-behaved little fellow who was fine staying behind in the hotel for an hour or two. We even took him on a Sunday brunch cruise along the canals. Let’s pause for a moment to make a very important distinction. Dogs in Europe are not like yours or mine. They are, for the most part, very small and portable. Almost always, they also have been well socialized. It’s not unusual to see them lying at their masters’ feet in bars and cafes, or heeling closely on busy sidewalks with cyclists

whizzing by. There are dogs in the U.S. that no doubt could pass muster under similar circumstances, but even the most well-behaved are unaccustomed to negotiating escalators or sitting quietly in a train compartment because that just isn’t in their realm of experience. I’ve probably shared a hotel room 20 times in the past three years with one of our whippets, because that’s what you do when you hit the U.S./Canadian dog show circuit. But with the very welcome exception of an Erie hotel bar that encouraged owners to bring along the pups, our 37-pound sighthound is rarely welcome in

public areas. But in Remy’s European home base, his presence in restaurants, or clothing stores, or on a train, is no big deal. We took him to numerous dinners in Amsterdam, where he zonked out under the table. The only oohing and aahing came from fellow travelers who missed their own pups. At the Cafe George, a well-dressed couple from the United Kingdom immediately told us how much they missed their dog, then proceeded to show us iPhone photos of their

abiding by the rules and that the most frequent comments are requests to add pet options on more routes. For Remy, the big travel test came two months later, when he and Ellen flew stateside for the holidays. Dogs in the European Union countries are eligible for their own passports. To land in New York City, however, he had to have an international health certificate, filled out in English, from his vet in Berlin. There had been some concern that he needed to get yet another health certificate from the U.S. side for his return to Germany, but that turned out to be unfounded. Little dog EU passport did the trick. Once on the plane, each time, he had to stay in his airlineapproved carrier. For dogs flying in-cabin— and every airline has its own restrictions on how many that can be— their humans must pay additional ticketing fees of about $100. It was great having Remy in Pittsburgh for the holidays. He happily mingled at a small PostGazette office party, got a nice new haircut, and convinced our two much-bigger dogs that he was boss. Given the ease with which he adapted to playing tourist in Amsterdam and, later, New York City and Chicago, we were hardly surprised.

2016 Kia Soul: unique design, extra-roomy cabin and cargo area, plus an affordable price tag

KIA OPTIMA

WITH SUNROOF, Auto D

stk#R016022

Drivetrain: Base 1.6-litre four-cylinder shared with the Rio; 2.0 option adds passing power; six-speed transmissions; Soul EV’s maximum battery range approaches 150 kms. The Soul is one of those hard-to-describe cars that owes its popularity to the way it looks as much as how much it can carry and how much it costs. In its most recent 2014 updating, the cabin was slightly enlarged in front to create additional head and shoulder room, while similar alterations in back contributed more leg room. In addition the dashboard was revised to accommodate an available 20-centimetre touch screen. The platform was made 29% stiffer and accommodates a suspension that was reengineered for improved ride and handling. Outside, design details inspired by the Soul-based Trax’ster concept provided the basis for a front and rear facelift that makes the Soul much more appealing. The rear lift gate was made six centimetres wider and is now flanked by one of the coolest set of taillights ever installed on any vehicle. The entry-level LX Soul is equipped with a 1.6-litre four-cylinder that produces 130 HP and 118 pound-feet of torque, while the optional 2.0-litre four-cylinder in the EX and SX models delivers the same 164 HP and 151 poundfeet. The 1.6 uses a six-speed manual transmission or an available sixspeed automatic, while the 2.0 is only available with the automatic. Base Souls feature air conditioning, but not when the manual transmission is ordered, plus all the power amenities. Optional is a panorama-style sunroof and leather seats (heated and ventilated in front), along with a NAV system and premium Infinity-brand sound package.

Drivetrain: A trio of choices includes two four-cylinder engines (one turbocharged) and a potent V6; AWD is optional, while a six-speed transmission handles the shifting chores. The Sorento isn’t afraid to play with the more established segment leaders including the Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota Highlander. The latest edition shows a strong similarity to the previous version, but most noticeable is a larger honeycomb grille and lower air intake, revised headlights and fog lights and an enlarged roof spoiler and new taillamps. Less obvious is the distance between the front and rear wheels that has grown by about eight centimetres. The increase amounts to a bit more cargo space, whether the second- and optional third-row seats are folded (almost) flat or are left in their upright positions. Secondrow legroom has also increased, as has access to the optional third row. The dashboard now appears less cluttered, with easier-to-use/find (larger) knobs and dials and bigger fresh-air vents. There’s also greater use of industrial-strength adhesives, which provides added stiffness. More sound insulation means a cabin that is almost devoid of outside road and wind noise. A newly available turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder increases performance to 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, while returning unchanged is a 3.3-litre V6 that delivers 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet. Note that the V6 is mandatory if you want to outfit your Sorento with the third-row seat. The front-wheel-drive Sorento LX is the price leader, but as with the EX and SX, it can be had with all-wheel-drive that splits the torque 95:5 (front:rear) when roads are flat and dry.

Kia Optima: 2015 ➨ 2015 IIHS’s Top Safety Pick

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS Base price (incl. destination): $26,330; $31,600 (Hybrid) Type: Four-door sedan Type: 2.4-litre DOHC I4 (192) Type: 2.0-liter DOHC I4, turbocharged (274); 2.4-litre DOHC I4 with electric assist (199, hybrid) Layout: Front-engine, frontwheel-drive Transmission: Six-speed automatic L/100 km (city/highway): 10.2/6.9 (2.4) Weight (kg): 1,470

Drivetrain: Four-cylinder engines in turbocharged, non-turbocharged and hybrid versions; all are hooked up to six-speed automatic transmissions. It’s getting so you can readily spot any Kia model from a distance since they all share the same face. There’s nothing wrong with that since it has helped the Optima become a player among sedan brands. The Optima drops to third place from second in Kia’s sedan hierarchy with the arrival of the big-dog K900. However this sedan still looks as fresh as ever since its 2014 front end and grille updating. In back it received a revised trunk lid and a lower bumper area where the exhaust exits. Inside, seat fabrics were upgraded and a larger high-resolution touch screen for the optional navigation and communications systems was installed. The Optima’s engine entry point is a 2.4-litre fourcylinder rated at 192 horsepower, while an optional 274-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine quenches your thirst for thrust. The Optima Hybrid uses the 2.4-litre gas engine plus a 47-horsepower electric motor supplied by a 47-kilowatt lithium-polymer battery pack for a total system output of 199 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque. Note that a six-peed automatic transmission (and not a traditional continuously variable unit) is used in the Hybrid as well as with both gas engines. The hybrid can also travel at speeds of up to 100 km-h without assistance from its gas-engine partner. With four trim levels -- base LX, EX, EX Luxury and SX -- the non-hybrid Optima ranges far and wide to satisfy a variety of budgets. The Hybrid also comes in four different trims although the designations are slightly different, topping out with the EX Premium at about $38,230, including destination charges. That’s slightly more than the full-load turbocharged SX model.

auto showcase ____________________________________________________________ FOUR FUNCTION AUTOSPORT

Building a community of auto enthusiasts Mike Straus Calle Mirkowsky and Dave Ingraham started and grew Four Function Autosport with a singleminded passion for cars. Whether racing, drifting, or tuning, it’s clear that for the Four Function team, auto sports and mods are a way of life. Calle Mirkowsky got hooked on the world of auto sports early in life. Though her 1998 Honda Civic was originally meant as a means to get around, her passion for the automotive world led her to start modifying it. Soon enough, she was part of a small group of ‘modders’ who worked hard to break new ground in the world of engine upgrades. She, and her partner Dave Ingraham, dove into the world of performance tuning headfirst, without any prior experience, led solely by a passion for auto sports. “The early days were terrifying,” she said. “We always chart unknown territory in what we do, because we always do custom stuff.

Car racing is one of the ways the Four Function dealership team reflect their passion for cars. “People want to look up to you, so you hold yourself to a different standard than if you were just a car enthusiast.” And now, with Four Function entering its sixth year in business, Mirkowsky has grown into a professional role and built a diverse community of car lovers from all walks of life. “We came into place because the only performance shop in Vernon went out of business and trying to

order something as simple as a cold air intake from one of the regular parts shops was impossible. “All of our growth has been word-of-mouth. We’re now leading the way with custom work.” Over the years, the shop has expanded out of its original scope—modern highperformance cars—and branched into classic cars, hot rods, muscle cars and late-model domestic vehicles. Mirkowsky said

that the shop has had its challenges, but a dedicated customer base and an unshakable love of cars have kept the shop running. “Finding people who can do custom work is challenging,” she said. “Skilled tradespeople in general are rare, but people who can do good custom work are nearly impossible to find. We’re lucky to have the people we do have.” Four Function’s team includes Ingraham, a

Red Seal technician who received LS and Duramax training from General Motors; and Shawn Browne, a veteran fabricator who has extensive experience in building hot rods and modified chassis. Mirkowsky notes that the shop’s more innovative work can sometimes be a struggle, but it’s also the most rewarding work. “We do extensive

engine mods. We’re always asking more from the vehicles than the factory ever designed them to give,” Mirkowsky said. “That’s a challenge— the manufacturer has spent hundreds of hours making something a certain way and you have to add to it without ruining it.” Mirkowsky said that although a variety of personal projects have

kept the team busy, Four Function has big plans for 2016. “We’ll be back out drifting as a shop, which is awesome. We’re talking about doing the Knox Mountain Hill Climb again,” she said. “We wanted to finish our personal projects so that we can enjoy cars with our customers and get back to the real reason we started this in the first place.”

Local family-owned Mazda dealership credits a great work environment to its continued success, longevity and high employee retention rate. Since 1945, Kelowna Motors has supplied the Okanagan with quality American and Japanese cars and automotive accessories. The original business —a tire supplier— was founded by Archie August, a longtime volunteer fire chief. Today, the August family legacy at Kelowna Motors continues with dealer principal Brian August and general manager Matt August, who represent the second and third generations respectively of August men to operate the dealership. “Archie was very well known in Kelowna,” recalled Rick Speckman, Kelowna Motors sales manager. “Brian was born and raised here and after college, he came back to help the family business

—and it grew from there. “The business started as a service station and tire company, but they also owned a Mercury dealership. “Then they moved out of Mercury into Datsun, so when the family had the opportunity to become a Mazda franchisee, it was an easy transition because they’re both Japanese imports.” Speckman notes that the dealership has seen impressive growth thanks to an expanding import market and new demands for luxury vehicles. Kelowna Motors recently expanded into a new venture, August Luxury Motorcars, to compete in the expanding pre-owned luxury market. “Years ago, you typically had Honda, Toyota and Mazda. But now we’re seeing Hyundai, Kia and Nissan,” Speckman said. “The luxury brands are growing, too. Even the high-end BMW and Mercedes market has grown. That’s been the biggest change in the industry—the expansion of the market.”

Speckman said that market expansion and business growth always bring challenges, but for Kelowna Motors, the biggest challenge was keeping the dealership’s identity consistent. “How do you maintain that familyrun hometown way of thinking when you’re growing? We could start becoming more like the metro markets, but we’re still a very rural-minded store,” he said. “People paint salespeople with a broad brush, but the common perception is far from the truth. The August family has stuck with the same plan since 1945: “Keep it simple, respect your customers and deal locally.” Speckman notes that the dealership’s fun family environment—the same environment it has kept since its start—is what keeps employees working for the August family for decades. Sales and leasing agents Jerry Feist and Sheri Dickson are among the long-term employees at the dealership. Feist

Bringing a fun family vibe to new car sales

The Kelowna Motors dealership today (above) and back in its early days more than 50 years ago as a service station and Mercury Lincoln dealership. has been with the dealership since 1988, while Dickson joined the company in 2001. “Our parts manager, Quentin Dyck, has been here for 45 years. He’s been a steady influence —if something is wrong with the building, he knows how to fix it,” said Speckman. “Larry Stevens, our service manager, has been here for 24 years. He’s a very hard-working man – it’s not unusual to see him cleaning the shop floors on a Sunday afternoon. “Our two accounting people have been here 18 and 22 years, respectively.” Speckman credits the team’s longevity to a

positive and fun work environment. “People like working here. It’s a team atmosphere. Everyone has a job to do, but we don’t want to drive our employees to frustration. “We’re all honest and straightforward, which takes the pressure off.” Speckman said that having a stable group of long-term employees has helped the dealership to thrive. “When you walk into our showroom, we have a consistent group of people. The customers recognize that.” Although Speckman said that a stable group of employees has been a boon, one area where

change is embraced is the Mazda product line. “Over the last few years, we’ve renewed our entire inventory. That’s exciting. Since 2014, we’ve seen a brand new Mazda 3, CX-3, CX-5, MX-5 and CX-9. That’s the Mazda ‘zoom zoom’ mentality.” Speckman also said that part of the Mazda philosophy is quality innovation through attention to detail: “When they were

building the 2014 Mazda 3, they had one engineer whose sole job was to design the seat and make it the best seat in the marketplace.” Whether it’s changing inventory, a changing community, or a changing industry, the key to Mazda’s success, it seems, is navigating and embracing change in a way that builds on the dealership’s stable identity.

KELOWNA DENTIQUE

Kelowna Dentique Paintless Dent Repair has been serving the Okanagan Valley for the last 20 years. Started in Kelowna by Mick Rasmussen, the business has expanded with franchise locations now in Victoria, Cranbrook, Vernon, Kamloops and Vancouver. The Dentique ‘technique’ is a refined craft whereby dents are skillfully removed rather than covered up with auto body filler and paint. Using special tools, a Dentique technician massages the dent out of the metal by applying strategic pressure and leverage from behind the dented panel. Bill Rothwell, coowner of the Kelowna Dentique shop at 1060 Leathead Rd., said the story behind the

Dentique dent removal application started in Europe, specifically with Mercedes-Benz using it to fix dents on vehicles before leaving the assembly line with minimal delay. “It’s become a little more relevant in the U.S. and Canada over the last 25 years,” Rothwell said. He said Dentique technicians can repair just about any dent in an automobile panel, whether it be steel or aluminum, as long as the paint isn’t badly scratched or crease damaged. “Our process isn’t about applying a matching body paint. People will ask us how we are going to match up the paint on a dent and we tell them it’s not a problem because we don’t have to do that.” If the damage is that

significant, Rothwell said clients are advised to take their vehicle to a body shop. “To fix a dent, all we need is to be able to apply our tools to create the pressure we need from the back of the panel which has the dent,” he said. Rothwell said a Dentique technician’s dent repair task requires meticulous attention to detail especially when dealing with multiple indentations on a vehicle. “There is a certain amount of artistry to it. I remember one time working on one vehicle that had 185 dents on the hood. It takes a great deal of patience to work through that,” he said. Hail storms in particular, he said, leave vehicles the most susceptible for those

kinds of detailed dent repairs. “The bigger the hail the more extensive the damage. We had one vehicle with 850 dents on it the size of a quarter in diameter to repair. It took us six days to fix all those dents,” Rothwell said. “But it’s a rewarding thing to complete because you feel a great sense of satisfaction with the end result.” Besides being an environmentally cleaner process that a typical body shop—”glass cleaner is probably the most caustic thing we use”—Rothwell said the Dentique method is cost effective because a vehicle generally requires less time in the shop to repair. Within the automotive industry in the Okanagan, Kelowna Dentique

In spite of early challenges like high overheads, a limited talent pool and a competitive market, Kelowna’s Toyota dealership has flourished throughout its 45-year tenure. Jack Kofoed remembers the early days of the Kelowna Toyota dealership, when the company offered five models of cars and was struggling to give domestic-friendly buyers a reason to choose an imported car. In 1970, it wasn’t easy to reach buyers in town, given the dealership’s location amidst orchards and farm gardens. But just a few years later, when the oil crisis was in full swing, suddenly Kelownians were looking for small, economical cars—like those Toyota is known for. “The shop itself had enjoyed a great service

business through the previous owner,” said Kofoed, Kelowna Toyota’s dealer principal. “We also offered very competitive prices. Our big break came in 1973, when the oil embargo became very apparent in North America. There was interest in economical cars, so people started looking to Toyota.” Kofoed also credits a winning bid with the City of Kelowna as kickstarting the dealership’s success. “The City of Kelowna puts out bids for little cars. We’d never before been successful in getting bids. “But in 1973, we

won a bid for 15 of our little Corollas. Suddenly 15 white Corollas were driving around town. That was great visibility for us.” Combined with a spirited print advertising strategy and shifting attitudes toward Japanese goods, the city’s bid helped Kelowna Toyota to access new markets. And when development expanded north, increased visibility further boosted the dealership’s profile. “That’s when the culture changed,” Kofoed recalled. “People realized that the Japanese make high quality items. With Japanese manufacturers being very innovative, we found that we were upto-date when it came to introducing new features like power steering, fuel injection and sunroofs.” As this wave of Japanese products hit Kelowna and as the city’s population continued to expand, the dealership had to act quickly to serve

Consumer trust, busy location keys to success

Kelowna Toyota is a business landmark on Leathead Road just off Highway 97 North. its growing customer base. Kelowna Toyota expanded its first building three separate times and ultimately ended up building a larger dealership in 1994—one that would accommodate up to 15 floor models. Kofoed said that there’s a large demand for new cars in Kelowna. Lots of businesses are buying commercial vehicles, he said and with the average Kelowna car being nine years old, there’s a steady demand for replacement vehicles. Plus, with Kelowna

acting as a hub city, the dealership sees a number of new customers coming from smaller towns. Now, though, changing times mean the dealership is facing a new set of challenges. High property taxes and licensing fees contribute to large overheads, while a small talent pool—especially for managerial positions —is putting strain on the dealership. The solution, Kofoed said, is the people. “This is very much a people business,” Kofoed explained. “Without the right

people, businesses falter. We work very hard to earn client loyalty. People still appreciate a sincere,

friendly sales experience. You need that welcoming attitude.”

KELOWNA CHRYSLER

Innovative new programs draw customers to dealership Mike Straus Contributor

Specialized repair and conditioning, customer education and an evolving online presence are giving the local Chrysler dealership a new, 21stcentury identity. Just coming off the heels of Chrysler’s best year in history, Kelowna Chrysler is planning big moves for 2016 and beyond. A new online experience, an expanded delivery and education program and emerging financing opportunities are keeping the dealership’s staff busy. “Our slogan is ‘something’s happening at Kelowna Chrysler’ and we try to stay true to that,” said dealership managing director Scott Amis. “This week, we arranged zero per cent leasing on Jeeps. Two weeks

ago we managed to get $2,000 cashback on the remaining 2015 models. We’re constantly working our suppliers and distribution channels. “Customers want to maximize their return when they make a purchase (and we try to meet that demand).” Amis notes that the dealership’s role has evolved in recent years, shifting from one of education— helping buyers to understand features and offers—to one of consulting. “Most of our customers find us online. There was a time in history when you had your traditional customers and your Internet customers,” Amis explained. “But now, every customer is an Internet customer. People are far more educated. They understand things like pricing, interest rates, leasing and trade-ins.”

This shift in consumer education means that now, successful dealerships must become specialists in selection and service—something that Amis said Kelowna Chrysler is doing particularly well. “We’ve just come off our greatest year in the car business. Tradein values went up because of the US exchange and there were more competitive leases available,” he explained. “Our store grew in every single department last year. In fact, for the first time in our 70-year history, Chrysler Canada became the country’s number one car manufacturer.” Amis notes that Kelowna Chrysler has also seen major growth in the aftermarket repair industry. The dealership’s body shop is the only Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM shop

in the Central Okanagan to have received accreditation from ICBC. “(Having that accreditation has) allowed us to specialize in repair and conditioning for re-sales,” he said. Amis notes that the dealership has seen some challenges with respect to the auto market in recent years, but innovative new solutions have led Kelowna Chrysler to thrive. “The market has become much tighter from a banking point of view. The banks are concerned about the economy, so they’re tightening up their lending standards. But since the end of 2015, we’ve had quite a growth in our ability to get financing for customers when the banks have said no,” Amis said. “About 30 per cent of our customers have been turned down by a major bank when it’s time to finance their car. This has created a

Cars - Trucks - Vans - Suvs

whole new market for us—we can get these customers approved on a pre-owned or new car.” Kelowna Chrysler is also working hard to engage with customers online and off. A new loyalty rewards program, exclusive online coupons and unique web and social media experiences are just the latest projects that the dealership is creating. “We launched a loyalty program last year. 10 per cent of purchases get re-invested into the customer’s account for future sales. We try to move our coupons online with Facebook and Twitter. We’re also going to be experimenting with Instagram,” Amis said. It should come as no surprise that evolving markets demand an evolved approach and when it comes to innovation, Kelo wna Chrysler is leading the charge.

Two-wheel fans converge By Keith Morgan A chill maybe in the air but motorcycle riders are already thinking about their first ride of the spring. And this weekend they have a golden opportunity to dream a little more about the joys of the open road at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show, which runs for three days at the Tradex Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford. Show producer Laurie Paetz says the show’s diversity and massive selection of bikes and line-up of entertainment is what fans keep coming back for.

SAGUENAY, PQ: Meet Nissan’s winter secret weapon—the Rogue Warrior. Instead of four wheels, it has four tracks that can propel it through almost any winter condition. The Rogue Warrior started as an idea of Nissan Canadian head of PR, Didier Marsaud. Carl Hermez of Montreal’s Motorsports in Action (MiA), found American Track Truck, a U.S. firm that makes triangularly shaped tracks that fit almost any vehicle. Taking off the wheels and putting on the tracks takes about one hour. The only change to the Rogue was a switch to two-inch taller shocks so the tracks could clear the bottom of each wheel well, snow guards and minor lower body trimming to clear the tracks. The Rogue Warrior was tested in secrecy two weeks before this week’s Montreal Auto Show. Nissan rented one side of a ski hill, complete with spotters on the ridges to make sure no spy photos were taken. The first run was made by Oliver Bedard, this year’s Nissan Micra Cup champion. He roared up a nearly 30 per cent grade with snow billowing out of the wheel wells with zero problems. Then it was my turn—uphill, downhill through 30 cm of powder snow—I was unstoppable. When I got out, I couldn’t stop laughing. I even hugged Hermez.

Hefty hybrid light on fuel By Neil Moore Some believe that hybridizing large SUVs is like ordering a diet Coke to atone for your triple cheeseburger. I would suggest quite the opposite. It is these otherwise gas-sucking vehicles that provide maximum return. You can load them up with cylinder deactivation, auto start/stop and power-sapping Eco buttons, but their net effect won’t match any good hybrid system. I’ll leave it to the bean counters to decide whether or not fuel savings justify the higher purchase price. My tester for the week was a 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, all-wheel-drive as are all Toyota’s hybrids. You can order the Highlander as a straight petrol burner, with a price range of $33,355 to $46,980, excluding freight and taxes. Or open your wallet even further for the Hybrid. The base LE begins at $45,755, rising to $48,285 for XLE trim and $54,960 for the range-topping Limited, as tested. You might think penny pinching at the pump would kill performance, but Toyota has wisely mated a V6 to its electric motor, rather than the 2.5-litre four cylinder found in Camry and RAV4 hybrids. Highlander’s 24-valve, 3.5-litre DOHC six cylinder, which in the non-hybrid makes 270 hp and 248 lb/ ft of torque, nets out at 280 hp in the hybrid. Net torque, however, isn’t published, but with gas and electric working in tandem, takeoff and passing are surprisingly quick.

Transmission is an electronically-controlled CVT. I’m usually not a fan of these, but today’s units no longer suffer from a “rubber band” feel. And in “sport mode”, which increases throttle response and raises the virtual “shift points,” the driving

experience will match most SUVs in its segment. The interior takes a few upscale cues from Lexus with soft-touch surfaces (twotoned black and brown as tested), faux stitching throughout the upper dash, as well as woodgrain

appliques and matt-finish aluminum accents. There’s a long shelf below the uncluttered dash, where you can slide cellphones and other small items. Also handy is a large storage well beneath the centre armrest.

Badke, Helene (nee Jeske) August 9, 1927 – January 12, 2016 We announce the passing of Helene. She immigrated to Kelowna in 1955 from Germany. In 1985 her and late husband, Arthur, moved to Aldergrove to be closer to their family. She always welcomed her guests with her wonderful baking & decorated her home with flowers from her garden. She will be remembered with love by her sons Arnold (Linda) & Will (Fernanda); her grandchildren Kristine (Don) Kidd, Neil, Katherin, Nicole, Kevin (Linda), Danielle and great-grandchildren Ayden, Bryson, Arlo, Avery and Nolan. A funeral service was held on Tuesday January 19, 2016 at the Zion Lutheran Church in Cloverdale.

EAST, JAMES HENRY In loving memory of Jim East, who passed away on the morning of January 1, 2016 at the age of 62. He was the embodiment of the entrepreneurial spirit and incessantly dedicated to his family and the pursuit of knowledge. Few people have had as much variety in their life and creers and sought to master so many diverse disciplines: journeyman carpenter; equipment operator; locksmith; boat/sailing captain; pilot; truck driver. He taught his family practical life skills, to live a good life on our own terms without compromise and that there is no limit to what we can achieve when we set our mind to something. He taught this by his example and reinforced it by the belief and pride he expressed towards all that we did and had become. Jim will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 44 years, Sandy, and their children: Rick and his sons Andre, Jarod and Noah; Brandy and her son Mack; his sisters Kathleen and Lori; and in-laws, Barbara and Ritchie McRae. He was predeceased by his parents Allan and Claire East, sister Diana and her husband Bill Simpson. A celebration of life will be held in Grande Prairie in May 2016. Godspeed on your way home. You will be greatly missed, fondly remembered and always loved.

LEINWEBER, TYLER CAMERON It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Tyler Cameron Leinweber on January 14, 2016. Born on October 3, 1975 in Cranbrook BC, Tyler then moved to Kelowna at age three. As a young man, Tyler spent a great deal of time travelling overseas and during an extended stay in Thailand he became a father for the first time, when his beloved son Mac was born. Six years later Tyler became a proud dad again, of daughter Talay. He and his young family settled in Kelowna. His love for his children was foremost in Tyler’s heart throughout his too-brief life. Tyler leaves behind a loving family including his two children Mac and Talay, and their mother Supa; his Mom and Dad, Helen and Stu Jennens; father Loni Leinweber and his wife, Vern; his sister Brie and her partner Errol and their daughter Ella; brother Nicolas; aunt Lori and husband Dallas and their children; his uncles George and Thomas and their families; and his maternal grandparents, Don and Mabel MacDonald. Tyler was predeceased by his brothers Anton and Rian. Please join us to celebrate Tyler’s life on Saturday, January 30 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna with an on-site reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Tyler’s name to the Kelowna Gospel Mission. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.
