Gillnetter wasn’t breaking the law

Seniors Society has new home(s) The Campbell River Seniors Centre Society has found a home, for now, through a partnership with the City of Campbell River. City Council approved the request from the Society for use of City owned buildings rent free, namely the Sportsplex and Community Centre. The Seniors Society’s long term goal is to establish a stand-alone Seniors Centre. In the interim while they work toward achieving that goal they requested temporary use of space at the Sportsplex and Community Centre. Seniors Society representatives and City staff have been working together to determine available rental space and times at the Sportsplex and Community Centre that would suit the needs of the Seniors Society. The value of the above rentals for the 13 week period from Sept. 23 to Dec. 20 is approximately $19,000. The report to Council by city staff said that the Seniors Society request may result in lost revenue generated from rooms occupied by the Seniors Society. The report said it is difficult to predict this consequence and staff believe that the times requested by the Seniors Society will not result in a significant loss of revenue from other rentals. This could become a factor if the Seniors Society wishes to expand their times at some time in the future. Staff costs associated with room rentals are covered by setup and cleanup fees which are separate and in addition to room rental fees. Council voted to waive all rental fees and staff costs through to the end of 2013. “This is an opportunity we didn’t anticipate,” said Helen Whitaker of the Seniors Society. “We are really thrilled to have this space in the Sportsplex and Community Centre and are so grateful to the City of Campbell River.” sthomson@courierislander.com

From a pure Fisheries perspective, Native fisherman Nathan Chickite was not breaking the law when he took his gillnetter through the Tyee Pool on Monday night. That’s the word from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Field Supervisor Greg Askey who said there are two laws at play here. Witnesses said that the boat came within about 50 metres south of the Tyee Clubhouse and then went north about two thirds of the way through the Tyee Pool. The RCMP were called and responded, meeting up with Chickite at the Marina. A witness said it was apparent that Chickite was not charged. “There is the Fisheries Act and the Canada Shipping Act,” said Askey. “Under the Fisheries Act, Chickite had the legal permit to fish there. It takes precedence over row boat fishing. He has a permit for food fishing, sockeye is closed so he can fish for chum, some coho pinks, chinook, he has to release any sockeye he catches but the bottom line is he (Nathan Chickite) has a valid permit to fish in Discovery Passage including the Tyee Pool. Now can he be fishing there with a power vessel? That is up to the RCMP whose mandate is to enforce the Canada Shipping Act.” Askey said that the Constitution gives Aboriginal access priority over anyone else for fishing. Chickite is not a commercial fisherman, he is of the traditional sector or otherwise known as Native fishery. This incident had nothing to do with the commercial sector. Following this event, social media lit up with threats and insults to Chickite, including threats to ram, block or damage his boat. “I did not go there to piss people off,” said Chickite. “ I have more rights than sports fishermen do to be there if they think this is a conservation issue See Gillnetter on page 4.

had occurred at the Discovery Pier. A responding member observed the male suspect driving away from the scene. The suspect was well known to police and was wanted on an outstanding warrant. The police officer followed the suspect to an apartment building and approached the vehicle after it had stopped with the suspect still behind the wheel. The police officer informed the male that he was under arrest. The suspect then lunged out of the car striking the officer in an attempt to get away. In a series of scuffles the accused attempted to hit the officer and flee, losing his shirt and a shoe in his attempts. The officer was able to subdue the suspect, pin him to the ground and take him into custody when other members arrived. The officer was not injured. For his efforts, in addition to the original charge, the suspect, Robert Oliver Nelson (38) of No Fixed Address Campbell River is now charged with; Possession of Ammunition Contrary to a Prohibition Order, Assaulting a Police Officer, Resisting Arrest, Escaping Lawful Custody, Possession of Cocaine and two counts of Breach of Probation. Nelson has been held in custody.

Mayor says he won’t be silenced By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

The City Council meeting on Tuesday ended with an exchange between Mayor Walter Jakeway and Councillor Andy Adams when Adams questioned Jakeway on his social media use “not reflecting the will of council.” Adams was talking about the Alternate Approval Process and Jakeway’s comments on his facebook page and in the press that the process is undemocratic. City residents have until Sept. 23 to file their objection to two borrowing bylaws that would allow the city to borrow up to $15 million for badly needed water and sewer upgrades and replacements. City council voted for what is called the alternative approval process. If 10 per cent of 24,011 voters file an objection to the city by Sept. 23, then the matter will be taken to referendum. The bylaws don’t necessarily mean the city will borrow the money. It authorizes them to do so as the needed projects come on line. “Council votes in favour of a bylaw and then you go out and speak against it,” said Adams. “Is the Mayor not supposed to reflect the will of council?” “I can talk on social media all I want. It is an expression of my opinion and not the will of council,” Jakeway said. “I also expressed this to council. How can we vote in favor of a bylaw through the alternate approval process that does not allow the public a voice?” The exchange was brief and council quickly moved to in-camera. Later on the Mayor’s Facebook page, the conversation continued. “At Campbell River City Council tonight, too funny. Andy A. goes after the Mayor for chatting on Facebook about the alter-

nate approval process,” said Jakeway. green studies and programs, glass roofs “Discussing with you my opinion about at Spirit Square, consultant reports for current affairs.

CR Festival of Films tickets on sale Sept. 14 The Campbell River Festival of Films will launch its 2013 season Sept. 24, in partnership with the Tidemark Theatre and the Toronto International Film Circuit. The Festival of Films will present their unique program of films and shorts on Tuesdays, starting Sept. 24, and continuing on Oct. 8, Oct. 22, Nov. 12 and Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The 2013 season’s passes will go on sale Sept. 14 at the

Individual tickets may be purchased at the door for $12 each. The directors of the Festival hope that by creating this partnership with the larger Tidemark Theatre venue more people will be able to enjoy the unique films and enjoy the wonderful ambi-

ance of the Tidemark as well. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with movies starting at 7. The Festival is a successful partnership that was established 15 years ago with the Toronto International Film Festival film circuit. This fall season begins with The Sapphires on Sept. 24, followed by Blackfish on Oct. 8. Amour will be featured on Oct. 22 with The Angel’s Share playing on Nov. 12. The season finale

will be on Nov. 19 and that title will be Twenty Feet From Stardom. The organizers want everyone to know that all the proceeds go directly back to our community. Each year, bursaries and camera equipment are given out to local students and schools. In previous years, the Festival has also put on bonus screenings that have helped to raise thousands of dollars to support various worthwhile programs in Campbell River.

Gillnetter from page 1. then they should pull out of there, also, the order on the food chain is First Nations food fishery, commercial fishery and sports fishery.” Campbell River S/Sgt Troy Beauregard said that the West Coast Marine Section did go out. “We are monitoring the situa-

tion and working with the area Band as well. We can enforce the Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations. This situation is creating concern.” There are three principal industry sectors for fishing. The commercial sector comprises enterprises and individuals associated with wild-catch or aquaculture resources and the various transformations of those resources into products for sale. It is also referred to as the “seafood industry”, although nonfood items such as pearls are included among its products. The traditional sector comprises enterprises and individuals associated with fisheries resources from which aboriginal people derive products in accordance with their traditions. The recreational sector comprises enterprises and individuals associated for the purpose of recrea-

tion, sport or sustenance with fisheries resources from which products are derived that are not for sale. Chickite said he grew up fishing from the age of six and has watched fishing go straight downhill ‘while the sports fishery just climbs and climbs.’ “Who made the rule that their sports have more say than us?” he said. “I am allowed to go there any time I want. It is the only area I can go right now. I cannot put a sockeye net on and go fishing in Johnson Strait right now. I am targeting spring in the Tyee Pool.” Chickite said he caught two springs on Monday night and gave them to someone who did not get any fish. “Sports do not have to have electronic log books and report every single fish they catch. I had to report the fish I caught the other night. Don’t tell me they are not filling their freezers up. I know the Tyee Club are out there for a specific purpose to

get the big fish but I can share that water too. The commercial fleet is not screwing anyone over. It is not about that. We need to have more management on sports fishing.” Chickite said he was not doing anything wrong. “I was told by fisheries (DFO) I could go there, and I know I can go there and the Tyee Club knows I can go there. “I go out and get two fish the other night and I have 92 Facebook comments from people threatening me, insulting me, threatening to damage my boat, I don’t know if its racial or not but they should be ashamed of themselves. The police cannot stop me, I was not reckless I was at a dead idle. I was not going to go in front of someone and get them tangled in a net. I called the DFO and told them I was going fishing in the Tyee Pool and they said go ahead we can’t stop you, we advise you against it but we cannot stop you.” sthomson@courierislander.

Feds invests in recreational fisheries conservation project in Campbell River John Duncan, Member of Parliament for Vancouver Island North on behalf of the Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, announced Tuesday, through the newly established Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program, the Government of Canada is partnering with the Campbell River Salmon Foundation to conserve fish habitat in the Campbell River. “Recreational fishing is a popular leisure activity in Campbell River that not only brings family and friends together, but also contributes to our economy by attracting tourists and creating jobs,” said MP John Duncan. “Through partnering with our local groups like the Campbell River Salmon Foundation who work on the ground to conserve fish habitat, the Government of Canada helps promote investments in recreational fisheries habitat restoration in our province, for the benefit of our communities in years to come.” “The $20,500 funding provided today through the Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program will help the

The only refuge is in humility, an utterly convinced, completely self-effacing humility before the complexity of truth and the even greater complexity of human nature, in the solemn certainty that complete impartiality and complete honesty are beyond the power of man, no matter how he may strain for them. In this there is a measure of help towards the proper balance of head and heart and law that yields a fair decision. - Roderick Haig-Brown

Our View Think of future generations Even if you have never fished in the Tyee Pool, most Campbell Riverites understand the unique nature of the sport. It is flawless, classic fishing, relying on the action of the lure and the sense of touch of the hand. No motors. No technology. No cheating. It is about challenge, rewards, camaraderie, and pride. As the Tyee Club explains, when the battle with a Pacific chinook salmon is on - anything can happen! Including a gillnetter coming your way. Granted, it was allowed to be fishing there. Maybe not with its engine going, but legally, fishing in the Tyee Pool for First Nations is allowed. But morally and ethically was it really appropriate? Did the protest backfire? Native fisherman Nathan Chickite got a lot of grief on Facebook for doing what he did. The statement from Shayla Attfield was different. It contained no insults, no threats, just truth. “Sadly this debate is not about whether you can or you can’t, it’s about whether you should. The Tyee Club is one that is rich with tradition and the frustration and anger here is not about First Nations being able to fish where they want, it’s about respect and upholding a century tradition in our home town. Seeing as you are First Nations, the Tyee Pool and its customs are something you should be proud of and would want to protect. And to that regard not even being First Nations, just being from Campbell River you should know that what you did, and are threatening to do more of, is quite disheartening to the rest of us who value the traditions of the Tyee Club. Your lack of respect has nothing to do with you being First Nations and everything to do with being a caring individual and responsible human being. Whether the law tells you what you did was okay or not, sometimes doing the right thing while others aren’t (or in this case are) watching is what integrity is all about. I hope you respect yourself enough to think about what you’re really doing on your boat as you represent not only your heritage but our future generations.” Poll: Do you agree with the city adopting Shaw’s ‘Go Wi-Fi Service’?

From our readers

Rules need to be looked at

First, I would like to congratulate Mike Gage and his son in catching a rare and magnificent 61.5 lb. tyee - not an easy task! Having said that, I have lived and fished in Campbell River for over 40 years and have witnessed the near extinction of the once plentiful 50-pound plus salmon in the famous Tyee Pool. Your headline in the paper tells the real story ‘Historic chinook ends 30-year-long drought, weighs in at 61.5 lbs.’ It puzzles me to think that, in this day and age, the Tyee Club still has outdated rules that in order to gain a pin, certification, and bragging rites, one must kill these magnificent fish. It is no wonder there are so few 50 lb. fish being caught when they are being killed for pins and bragging rites. As for the historic relevance of the fish-

ery we only need to look back to the near extinction of the tiger, elephant, whales and many more species that are, or near extinction through human interaction. Therefore, in the name of conservation and to bolster the gene pool of these large tyee salmon, the Tyee Club needs to do some serious soul searching and adopt rules that reflect the need to preserve this genetically large salmon rather than contributing to their demise. So the challenge to the Tyee Club and its members is to come into the 21th century and adopt a catch, measure, and release regulation for fish over 40 lb. which would help to enhance the recovery of these truly magnificent fish and maintain the historic relevance for future generations to come. Tony Pinder

Of Elmore And William

One of the head scratchers about English literature is the number of famous books around that nobody reads. Did you read last year’s winner of the Man Booker Prize? Neither did I. Do you even remember who it was? Same here. A lot of people, myself included, bought a copy of Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses. Did you ever try to read it? My begrudging compliments to the psychopathic mullahs who laid a death threat on Rushdie for writing it. Whatever their sins they managed to read enough of the book to be outraged. James Joyce is lauded as a prose master but if you threw a party for everyone who honestly made it past page 14 of Finnegan’s Wake, two large pizzas would probably cover your food requirements. Most writers appeal to a narrow slice of the audience. Ezra Pound’s Cantos are great fun for literati who savour a Greek pun leavened by a medieval Italian aphorism

while Dan Brown (The Da Vinci world, from the London stage to Code) satisfies readers who move Australian Outback music halls; their lips when they read. on a beach in Vancouver and under Very few writers are good the white lights of Broadway. enough to please The other maseveryone – book snobs ter writer?

shrugged. “People always say, ‘Where do you get your characters’ words?’ And I say ‘Can’t you remember people talking or think up people talking in your head?’ That’s all it is. I don’t know why that seems such a wonderment to people.” But wonderment it was in Elmore’s hands. His fans are legion. One of them wrote of the novel Glitz: “This is the kind of book that if you get up to see if there are any chocolate chip cookies left, you take it with you so you won’t miss anything.” Chap named Steven King said that. As for writerly advice, Leonard kept that sweet and simple too. “Don’t go into great detail describing places and things,” he advised. And my favourite: “Try to leave out the parts that readers tend to skip.” Writers, there you have it. Now go and write a classic.

99% of Canadians have access to 4G wireless networks compared to only 1 in 4 Europeans.* Canada leads the mobile world in quality in terms of reliability, speed and coverage. In fact, Canadians can enjoy speeds that are on average 3.5X faster than those in major Western European countries.† Most Canadians enjoy access to 4G wireless service just about anywhere they live, work and play in the country.

Additional traffic pattern change at Campbell River Hospital main entrance Site work to prepare for the new $266 million, 95-bed Campbell River Hospital will lead to some traffic disruption around the existing Campbell River Hospital entrance on 2nd Avenue in the days ahead. The regular exit from the 2nd Avenue main entrance parking lots will be closed to traffic from Tuesday, September 3rd to Saturday, September 7th. Please see attached image. During this period, motorists will be required to enter and exit the parking lots from the regular entrance. Traffic control flag persons will be on hand to assist. This work may lead to brief delays entering and exiting the main entrance parking lot. Please take this into account and allow additional time for your hospital visit. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. This work is related to construction of a new temporary Ambulance Access Route to the existing hospital Emergency Department entrance. The new temporary Ambulance Access Route is required because construction of the new hospital next year will block the present ambulance route to and from the present Emergency entrance. Please watch for additional temporary traffic changes in the weeks to come.

Chase caps off a big summer with beach bronze On the weekend, Campbell River’s Sarah Chase teamed up with Nanaimo’s Victoria Behie to earn bronze at the U-18 Beach Volleyball National Championships in Vancouver. The medal capped a big summer for the 15-year-old Chase and Behie, 16, with the two talented teens earning a silver medal with Team BC at the National Challenge Cup in Winnipeg. Chase and Behie qualified for nationals after earning gold at provincials in Parksville last month, which was also their first ever beach competition as a team. They entered nationals just hoping to finish in the top eight, but made it through two days of pool play with a 5-1 record and one of the top seeds as for the playoff portion on Sunday. They won their first match to secure a spot in the top eight, then won their quarter-final game, putting them up against Chloe Stone and Sarah Pantovic out of Vancouver in the semifinal. They unfortunately dropped that game and were prepared to take on another Vancouver team, Emily Maglio and Amanda Ramsden. However, Maglio injured herself in their semifinal and they were forced to drop out, handing the bronze to Behie and Chase. Still, the Island team was confident they would have won had they played, after beating them in the provincial semifinal in straight sets. “We were going in with the attitude that we were going to play hard, but we already knew Photo submitted how they played,” said Behie. Sarah Chase, left, with beach volleyball partner Victoria Behie, the two team up to earn Hitting the podium was beyond what Chase bronze at the U-18 National Championships in Vancouver.

had envisioned heading into the tournament. “My goal in my mind was to get into the top eight so I was floored that we got to third,” she said, adding they are likely going to try and take a run at gold together next year. The two had met before this summer, but had never played together. They really got to know each other on the provincial indoor team, of which Behie was a captain, and it didn’t take long for them to form chemistry. By the time the provincial team had packed it in for the summer, Stephen Epp, the Vancouver Island region beach volleyball coach, had talked them into taking it to the sand. “We just decided to play together at the last minute. .. we had just one training session and that’s it,” said Behie. “They’re both such versatile athletes, they’re probably two of the best athletes I’ve ever worked with,” said Epp, who is a former Riverite himself. “It’s their ability to adapt and they’re extremely intelligent when it comes to being volleyball players.” The five-foot-11 Chase, however, says it was their attitude that helped carry them through the weekend. “What made us successful is we never got down on each other,” she said. “The indoor part of (playing) with Team BC made us more tough mentally, and that really helped us.” - Glacier News Service - with files from the Courier-Islander

Riverites shine on badminton courts

The mission of the BC Seniors Games Society is to improve the health, lifestyle and image of British Columbians 55 years and older. Many of the events/sports in our 50+ Active Living programs such as bridge (social and duplicate), cribbage, table tennis, pickle ball, ice hockey, floor curling, carpet bowling, swimming and badminton are in the BC Seniors Games which is a yearly event. In this year’s games in Kamloops 12 of the 24 participants from Zone 2 play badminton in Campbell River. Each of the competitors from Zone 2 came home with at least one out of a possible three medals that could be won in badminton events. Three years ago, Roy Palmer, an active 50+ member, signed up for two sessions of how to learn the basics of badminton run by the Campbell River 50+ Active Living program and began playing three times a week in the badminton program. This spring, Palmer decided that he wanted to compete in this year’s BC Games in Kamloops in badminton. He had wins in the combined events and was presented with a gold in Mixed along with Connie Vincent, a silver in Men’s Singles and a bronze medal in Men’s Doubles (partner Willie Ulandry of Kamloops) in the 75-79 events. “What an inspiration he is for all of us,” said local seniors badminton player Cindy Simpson.

A ‘little’ 100 mile epic ride

It’s been a great spring and summer of riding in Campbell River this year. A few of us decided to celebrated it with a little road trip to an epic mountain bike race in Washington State. After months of preparation and loads of riding on our local trails, 13 Campbell Riverites James Durand headed south last weekend to race either 50 or 100 miles of mountain bike trails. The weekend was a huge success. Each and every rider should be very proud of themselves for taking on such a huge challenge. Congrats to all of you! Now I know 100 miles sounds like a huge feat for anyone, but one rider in particular was very impressive. This rider trained hard, ate properly and sacrificed normal life all year so he could prepare. He not only completed the 100 mile race, but in an event with pro athletes, veteran racers and grown men who live to ride, he finished 13th in open men. His name is Greg Mear and he is only 15 years old. I had the privilege of riding with Greg for the entire 100 miles, and watching him ride like a pro was awesome…but watching him ride like a kid was even better. He was jumping off roots, sliding into corners and making the most of every downhill section. Not the best way to conserve energy I admit, but when Greg smelled the finish line the sprint was on! It was a great reminder that even the toughest physical challenges, can still be loads of fun if we just let ourselves enjoy the moment. Whatever your style of riding, or outdoor fun, I sure hope you’re making the most of it! I’m James Durand and I’m goin’ ridin’.

PLANNING FOR LIFE CHANGES

The Value of a Pre-Approved Mortgage If you are thinking of getting into the market in the near future then make sure you get pre-approved for a mortgage sooner than later. Since fixed rates have moved up quite a bit in the past few Mike Parkinson months getting a rate hold for 120 days makes total sense and can save you a lot of money. A pre-approval is really the beginning of your mortgage process. It allows you to find out how much you can afford to borrow and at what interest rate. It locks you into an interest rate for the next 90-120 days in case rates rise prior to you buying a home – this means that if you complete your purchase within that time then you are guaranteed that rate or less (if rates happen to fall). This could save you thousands of dollars if rates happen to move up in the meantime. A pre-approval also allows you to estimate your future mortgage payment and know the amount of mortgage you can qualify for, so you don’t waste time looking for a certain a home that you cannot afford. Pre-approvals are not a guarantee that you are approved for a mortgage on a specific home. Once you find a property and make an offer the lender needs to approve the property and verify all your documentation like income, down payment etc. Kind in mind that the amount you are pre-approved for is usually the maximum you can afford, but it may be a good idea to look at homes in a lower price range to keep your budget on track.

Labour Day Steam Donkey at Museum at Campbell River

Call Brad DeRoche

It’s time for the Museum at Campbell River’s Steam Donkey to roar! In celebration of Labour Day, Monday, September 2, from 12 noon to 3pm, the Museum will fire up its steam donkey in honour of the island’s rich logging history. It’s an amazing sight to see this old workhorse of the forest all steamed up. As part of the festivities, a blacksmith’s forge will be on hand for demonstration. Restored logging trucks will be on display, including a 1932 920 Kenworth with a 1931 Hayes Anderson 15 ton trailer. And the Museum’s amazing Lego collection will be outdoors for the kids (and parents) to play with. Free coffee will be available. Inside the Museum be sure to check out the exhibit “Burning Snags and Raining Ashes: The Bloedel Fire of 1938 and its Aftermath”. This is sure to be fun for the whole family! Head to the Museum this Labour Day!

Happy Labour Day from the BC Government and Service Employees’ Union

A voice for workers in your community

Friday, Aug. 30, 2013

This Labour Day, let’s reflect on our accomplishments Let’s face it, for most people in our society, the real meaning of Labour Day has faded over the years. It’s now less about acknowledging the role workers have played in building our society, and more about the last long weekend of summer. As union members and leaders, we have an obligation to the generations that came before us—and to future generations—to work harder to teach people the real meaning of Labour Day. It’s about remembering the sacrifices made by the generations that preceded us, and the gains they were able to make that benefit every worker today, whether unionized or not. Things so many of us take for granted, like the 8-hour day, or the 40-hour week. Weekends! Pensions, Medicare, and other important benefits all came about at least in part because of the labour movement. Labour Day is also about recognizing our sisters and brothers around the world who are taking on many of the issues our predecessors faced here, but with even fewer protections or legal rights. In countries like Mexico, for example, labour activists not only face potential criminal charges for advocating for workers’ rights but they actually face death. While we have much work to do here in BC and Canada, we must also recognize how much progress we have made and share the lessons we’ve learned with working people all around the world. But Labour Day can’t just be about the past, nor can we allow ourselves to be lulled into complacency about our standard of living compared to other countries. While the labour movement and working people have achieved great things here, there are far too many people who have to work not just one or two jobs, but sometimes three or four just to make ends meet. There are too many families who can’t afford childcare, yet need quality care for their children so they can take that hard-to-find fulltime job. Increasingly BC’s economy is coming to depend on temporary foreign workers who are paid less, receive fewer benefits and have fewer rights than Canadians. And still, despite some incremental progress, women are still paid less than men for the same work in far too many cases. And now we see the Federal Conservatives and BC Liberals attacking unions and workers’ rights in very much the same fashion as rightwing Republican governments in many American states. CUPE BC’s 85,000 members, and the 625,000 members of CUPE National across the country, are joining with the Canadian Labour Congress to push back against this regressive agenda— not just to protect what generations before us fought and in some cases died for—but to continue to fight for fair wages, good benefits and a solid pension for our members, and all Canadian workers. So, while Labour Day is a celebration, it’s also a time to ready ourselves for the struggles ahead. Mark Hancock President, CUPE BC Representing 85,000 workers in communities across BC

InspireHealth cancer care program online InspireHealth today announced an innovative online program that provides people diagnosed with cancer and their families access to integrative cancer care and support from the comfort of their own home. InspireHealth ONLINE removes barriers often associated with living in rural or remote locations, including the time, cost and logistics associated with travelling to a major centre to receive the required services. The BC Ministry of Health provided InspireHealth partial funding to expand services and accessible programs for those outside the major urban centers in BC, as it is the people outside the urban areas whose disease rates are higher. In a pilot of this online program earlier this year, 100 per cent of respondents to an evaluation survey would recommend the program to someone with a cancer diagnosis. The InspireHealth ONLINE pro-

gram starts on Sept. 10 and is open to residents of BC who have received a diagnosis of cancer. Based on a whole-person approach to care, the program consists of a combination of online health education, medical appointments with health practitioners by telephone or video call, and ongoing online support materials. Patients will learn about options to improve their diet, incorporate exercise into daily life, implement stress management techniques, and build strong emotional support systems. “Virtual visits” with an InspireHealth physician or nurse practitioner (90 minute) and nutritionist (75 minute) are also available to participants. These extended consultations result in personalized health and nutrition plans which aim to empower patients to take charge of their own health.
