New Prosperity hearings start with a bang Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor There was no shortage of excitement on opening day of the environmental assessment panel for Taseko Mines Ltd.'s New Prosperity Mine. Monday afternoon had the feel of two combatants getting prepared for a title fight as both sides gathered in support a few hundred yards from each other. Taseko supporters donned blue sashes as they hosted a luncheon behind the Gibraltar Room, while the tone was much more boisterous at Boitanio Park with The Standing United With the Tsilhqot'in Rally. The rally was emceed by Cecil Grinder dressed in traditional regalia and his face covered in red and black war-paint and a wood staff in-tow as a symbol that his people were in for a fight. After the rally, Grinder led the Chilcotin chiefs into the hearings. The First Nations kicked off proceedings by singing and drumming three songs including one honouring Fish Lake. Afterwards, Lorne Doerkson, manager of Cariboo GM, led the audience in the singing of O Canada, to which the First Nations drummed along. The proceedings were then left in the hands of panel chair Bill Ross, appointed by the Minister of Environment. Many of the Taseko brass were on-hand for the opening day and are delighted to finally have the proceedings underway for New Prosperity. “I'm always happy to be in Williams Lake, this is like our home, we have 700 people

A royal baby boy for William and Kate

Prince William and Catherine (Kate), Duchess of Cambridge, announced the birth of their baby boy on Monday at St. Mary's Hospital in London. The baby weighed in at 8 lbs. 6 oz. Tuesday, the couple gave throngs of media and well-wishers outside as well as the world what they had long been anticipating — the world's first view

of the royal couple's baby son, and the third in line to the British throne. "It's very special," William told a crowd of media gathered around the hospital steps. "I'll remind him of his tardiness when he's a bit older," he said jokingly when asked why it took so long for the royal couple to leave the hospital.

When asked who the baby looks like, William said, "He's got her looks thankfully." To which Kate gushed, "No, no, no." William added: "He's a big boy, he's quite heavy" and laughed when a reporter asked him about the baby's hair. "He's got way more than me, thank God," he said.

Lone wildfire in Bridge Lake over weekend The Cariboo Fire Centre/ Wildfire Management Branch reports one wildfire from the weekend, a small vehicle fire that got into a tree canopy near Bridge Lake on Saturday night. This fire was first actioned by the Interlakes volunteer fire department and then a CFC Initial Attack crew on Sunday morning, and as of Monday is in patrol status. So far in July, there have been 15 wildfires with eight personcaused and seven lightning-caused. The fires have mostly been small, the biggest at 4 hectares from lightning in the Cariboo Mountains. There have been a total of 63 wildfires (49 person-caused, 14 lightning-caused) in the CFC this season, burning 1,068 hectares. The current fire

danger rating is split between moderate and high throughout the CFC, with areas of high in the Chilcotin, Williams Lake, Quesnel and Likely regions, and extreme near Middle Lake in the west Chilcotin. The fire danger rating is forecast to rise this week throughout the Cariboo-Chilcotin due to continued warm, dry weather. The CFC would like to again remind the public there is an open burning prohibition in place for the entire CaribooChilcotin region, banning any backyard and industrial waste, slash or grass fires. The CFC also urges the public to be vigilant with any type of fire use, including campfires and fireworks, and to properly and safely extinguish cigarettes. Wildfires can also

The numbers don't lie $25,000 – The amount basketball superstar Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat was paying ex-wife Siovaughn Funches per month to support her. If you do the math, that’s $300,000 per year, which pays her mortgage and four vehicles among other things. That didn’t stop Funches from grabbing headlines last week when she protested in front of a Chicago courthouse with a sign that she was homeless because of lack of support from Wade. She was accused by many for making a mockery out of homelessness which is a serious issue for millions of Americans. Wade and his mother actually were homeless for some time during his childhood. Wade and Funches eventually agreed upon a $5 million settlement.


69 – The age actor Dennis Farina died at on Monday from a blood clot in his lung. I will best remember him for his scene as mob boss Billy Batts in Goodfellas when he tells Tommy (Joe Pesci) “Now go home and get your (expletive deleted) shinebox.”


$195 – The cost of a week-long all inclusive vacation to Cuba from Toronto, Ontario

on www.selloffvacations. com. The trip leaves September 3, bound for the Marea Del Portillo Resort in Manzanillo de Cuba. The taxes at $290 cost more than the trip which includes round trip flights, accommodation, airport transfers, and all the food and drinks you desire.


$551.53 – The lowest cost of a round-trip flight from Terrace, B.C. to Vancouver, B.C. offered by the lone regional airline from Monday, September 3 returning a week later.


10 – The number of B.C. airports that WestJet provide service to after announcing Terrace as their newest location. On Monday, WestJet announced plans for twice-daily, non-stop service between Vancouver and Terrace, starting November 25. The northwest B.C. community is a hub in a region that is undergoing major economic transformation due to billions of dollars in investment in forestry, mining, smelting, hydroelectricity, liquefied natural gas, and infrastructure projects in the Kitimat-Terrace industrial corridor. Fort St. John and Nanaimo airports recently became the

eighth and ninth provincial airports flying the Westjet banner as they began service on June 24, 2013. Other WestJet airports include Kelowna, Kamloops, Vancouver, Victoria, Abbotsford, Comox and Prince George.


66 – The score of Phil Mickleson’s final round on Sunday to capture the 142nd British Open. The golfer known as ‘lefty’ completed a most improbable win in stunning, awe-inspiring fashion at the treacherous Muirfield golf course. Mickelson came from five strokes back to win his fifth major championship and capture the game's oldest trophy, the Claret Jug.


$77,000,000 – The amount of money New Jersey Devils superstar Ilya Kovalchuk is turning down to opt out of his 12-year contract. Kovalchuk stunningly elected to retire from the NHL and play in his native Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.


681 – The number of goals Jaromir Jagr has scored in his NHL career. He sits 10th on the all-time list and has the most goals by any non North-American born player. He sits six ahead of Teemu Selanne

who is also still playing. The Czech. Republic native recently agreed to terms with the New Jersey Devils on a oneyear contract. The addition of the 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr should help the Devils who are desperate for offense after the departures of Ilya Kovalchuk and David Clarkson (Toronto Maple Leafs).


Free – The cost of a flat tire repair at the Quesnel Kal Tire. A big thanks also goes to Doug Bolton and his crew. Our vehicle had a flat tire Sunday morning so I pulled in and had them check it out. They took the tire off the rim, found the leak and patched it up and put it back on - also checked the air pressure in all four tires. Meanwhile, my three girls demolished some muffins and popcorn leaving a giant mess in their wake. When it came time to pay he told me it was no charge. I wasn’t the only one that got a freebee; a guy was riding his Harley Davidson from Alaska to his home in Omaha, Nebraska when one of the tires in his trailer got a flat. They patched him up free of charge and sent him on his way. The guy kept going on how people in B.C. were some of the nicest people he’s ever met.

Cody William is in his third summer selling bannock at the Boitanio Park Farmers Market. William, a member of the Williams Lake Indian Band, began selling bannock to help fundraise for his nephew to attend hockey school.

The Teeter-Totter of Summer Nothings Something is bothering me. I’m not quite sure what it is, but perhaps I will figure it out soon. It has to do with summertime - when kids are a little too free, and when parents are a little too busy or at work. My Grandma used to intone, “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop,” but that doesn’t quite suffice. Summer parenting is a teeter-totter, to be sure! The twin extremes of busyness and boredom invade families struggling to maintain their sanity.

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett The kids need a break from school, perhaps, but with the job market a bit uncertain employment is scarce. And so is supervision. Of course one could always time-travel back to an age when nothing surpassed a good book

and a place in the sun, but we have replaced that with thumbing misspelled messages to anyone (Facebook) and everyone (Twitter). Meanwhile, the future forms. ‘Elastic’ young brains are being hard-wired into permanent habit patterns. Abilities and approaches to adult life start to gel. But what are we creating? As we only have a vague idea of what the future holds, why not prepare, at least, for something! So what if we learn a skill that is never used? Who cares

if we acquire wisdom we might not need! The other option is doing nothing - which is just practicing laziness. Who wants to come to their destiny empty-handed? I’d prefer to gamble on learning. Is it possible, since I lack clairvoyance, that skills learned now might not be useful as young people float through time? Calligraphy instead of texting. How to be a maitre d’. Discovering a few musical notes. Or, heaven forbid - contributing to the fam-

ily by chopping wood, making Thai meals, or painting the house. May I introduce my current hero - someone from the streets of Williams Lake? It’s just a woman with a handbag - a bulging handbag. To make room for her teen’s new skills, this woman takes the internet modem with her everywhere she goes! Summer has become playtime, a time when we idolize fun. The blessing of work has been relabeled a curse. Because we shun both physical and mental

fitness, which require effort, we also pass up potential strengths. A Bantu Proverb urges, “Going forward positively may lead to some difficulties, but ‘no’ leads nowhere.” Choosing some tasks instead of just play could someday make all the difference. Possibilities can’t be marketed. Tomorrow’s colours are painted by what we do today. And opportunities are made before they arrive. What we allow is what we teach. Sleep until 11 each morning? One old geezer

says summertime is when young people either learn meaning or meaninglessness. But there is still time to press the ‘reset’ button, or choose to poke no buttons at all. Success is determined by what we do with our leisure time. Gerry Bernie had it right: “We talk so much about leaving a better planet to our kids, that we forget to leave better kids to the planet.” And happily, it’s not too late for this geezer to learn calligraphy.

RCMP thanks To the editor: On behalf of the Williams Lake RCMP, I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who made the RCMP Musical Ride performances a tremendous success on July 18th here in Williams Lake. The list includes: the many Williams Lake Community Policing volunteers led by Bob MacIntosh, the Rotary Club of Williams Lake, the Lions Club, Dale Taylor from the Rush, all the community volunteers who invested hours of their time; the members of the media who helped promote the event; the many RCMP staff and officers who volunteered their time; and, of course, the thousands of amazing community members who attended the performance. The show was outstanding: from the community-based Cariboo Cowgirls, the Wild West Riders, and the Little Britches show — and to the magnificent display of patriotic pageantry of the Musical Ride itself. It was a great evening for Williams Lake, the RCMP and Canada. Again, many, many thanks to all who were involved. You deserve to be extremely proud of yourselves.

The iconic RCMP Musical Ride was at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds Thursday night. The 32 horse and riders wowed the thousands in attendance who filled the grandstand to capacity.

Wilson admires Charleyboy's courage The Federal Review panel for New Prosperity Mine got underway in Williams Lake on Monday afternoon following some ceremonial singing by First Nations, led by Cecil Grinder. Some of the audience got up and started singing O’Canada to the suprise of many but they all stood and many joined in vocalising our national anthem. The environmental review panel chair Bill Ross said the panel has no mandate to determine claims being made and that the recommendations from the panel will certainly have an effect on this area. Individuals who cant make it to the hearings can gets daily transcripts on their internet site. Mayor Kerry Cook of Williams Lake in her welcome to the panel and those in attendance that we are critically concerned about the impact on our area and

Contemplating Ken with Ken Wilson

hopes the hearing will take the economy of our area into consideration when making their deliberations. The New Prosperity mine would be the 10th largest in the world and the second biggest in Canada and Taseko said this is a tremendous opportunity that should not be ignored. Many of the Tsilhgot’in First Nations Chiefs spoke emphatically about their culture and traditions and that Fish Lake was a spiritual site. One Chief echoed what they were all saying, ‘we cannot accept a mine in this territory because of the long term effect on our culture’.

Service Clubs Invited to 85th Birthday Event Meeting March 15, 2014 will be the City of Williams Lake’s 85th birthday. Monday night in Council Chambers members of local service clubs gathered together to discuss how to celebrate the upcoming event. A consensus was drawn by the group and a second meeting is set for Monday July

Another Chief stated they would not sacrifice our culture to have a job and they have lived in this area for thousands of years. They suggested that there are serious environmental deficiencies by the company’s proposal and New Prosperity would affect salmon rivers right through to the coast and that would be devastating because First Nations in that area depend on a salmon supply for food every year as fish has sustained us since time immemorial said another Chief. It was also stated that contamination from the mine would not be good for berries. Taseko got a response by the Chiefs who had said that there was no consultation with the company. The Chiefs stated they had indeed met with the company and even at one point met with their board and some staff.

Grand Chief Stewart Phillip stated in thirty years the value of the deposit will have been depleted and First Nations in that area will be left with a big hole in the ground. Former Chief Marilyn Baptiste wondered why they had to go through this process once again and reiterated many times that this New Prosperity proposal was worse than previously submitted in 2010. She said the mine will drain Fish Lake and the divide and conquer scenario put threats on our lives and culture. Baptise also stated the Tsilhgot’in honoured former Chief Ervin Charleyboy when he was speaking against the mine and now he is for it and we don’t like that. When Ervin Charleyboy made his presentation to the panel he said it was being done by himself and he didn’t want any lawyers or environmentalists speak-

ing for him. Charleyboy said this is a new proShelley Wiese Shelley Wiese Shelley Wiese posal and now he see’s Sales Representative Sales Representative Sales Representative things differently at Fish Lake.

Boitanio Park Working Group Update A Working Group made up of the RCMP, the City of Williams Lake, health organizations, and other stakeholders examining solutions to issues of drunkenness and violence in Boitanio Park has put in place a number of initiatives to increase safety in the park and to address the complicated and intertwined issues of addictions, mental illness, and violence. As a result of this work, there are now weekly outreach visits to the park by the Friendship Centre mental health staff

in addition to a daily morning check by the Homeless Outreach Worker. Outreach staff report that the people in the park are open to this contact and would like additional „random walkthroughs� to check on them. Regular park patrols will continue with the hope that there will be increased frequency and contact with park users, with some additional staff from Mental Health and Substance Use Services from Interior Health. A Homeless Committee has had substantial success

developing an expedited process for Social Assistance applications, shortening the time to one day from the usual 2-3 weeks. This makes it easier to move people from homelessness into housing. They are also working on developing a new program for fall 2013, called “Circles of Support and Accountability” which would provide intensive community support for participants as they work through their mental health, addiction and other issues. The possibility of developing an alterna-

tive location drop-in/ activity centre for people who currently spend much of their day in the park has been explored, but bringing a group of intoxicated individuals with challenging behaviours together in a closed space has a number of risks and challenges. The risk and liability for an organization running a program where people are actively drinking, or under the influence of drugs and alcohol, are substantial and prohibitive. Additionally, the costs of developing this type of service would be very high.

“There really are no short term solutions in this issue,” says Manager of Social Development Anne Burrill. “RCMP data indicates that we have not yet made an impact on the number of arrests/prisoners to date. However, there continues to be active and increased service to the group that we are concerned with, along with increased activity from a strategic perspective. “ “There are no easy answers to the challenges in Boitanio Park, but the City and the Working Group are committed

to continuing the good work done so far,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “I applaud all of those participating in the Working group to tackle some very complex and challenging issues.” In the fall of 2012, Inspector Warren Brown from the RCMP convened a meeting to discuss the issues in Boitanio Park. This was followed by a meeting that convened on behalf of the city in December 2012, to follow up and develop action plans that might move some solutions forward. Over the summer,

City staff will be gathering information about two possible models of response to severe homelessness; Housing First and Wrap-Around services. The group will meet in the fall to consider this information and identify priorities for and make recommendations to Council further action. The City will also work to convene a meeting with health services staff from surrounding First Nations communities to bring them into this conversation in a more meaningful way.

Conley Pinette recorded personal bests in all three events he competed in at a recent Water Skiing tournament in Blaine, Washington. He scored 4970 in Trick Skiing, 3 balls at 32 off in Slalom Skiing, and set a new Canadian record in Jump with a distance of 126 feet. The jump broke his previous record of 117 feet.

Pinette breaks Canadian jump record in Blaine Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor Brothers Conley and Lucas Pinette left the competitors in their wake at a recent waterskiing tournament in Blaine, Washington. Lucas, seven, the youngest competitor in the tournament, competed in all three events. Lucas had personal bests in all three events including 21 feet in Jump, 4 1/2 balls at 17 miles in Slalom Skiing long line and

80 points in Trick Skiing. “I was a little bit nervous but I had a lot of fun,” says Lucas. “My favourite part of waterskiiing is jumping.” Older brother Conley also recorded personal bests in all three events scoring 4970 in Trick Skiing, 3 balls at 32 off in Slalom Skiing, and highlighted by jumping a new Canadian record distance of 126 feet. The jump broke Conley's previous record of 117 feet.

“Conley was super happy and we are so proud of his results and Lucas as well,” said mom Leigh Pinette. There were so many skiers at the tournament that dad Parnell gave his spot away so that Lucas could ski this weekend. There were 90 plus slalom skiers alone. Conley is training in Shaunigan Lake for the week and then off to a B.C. camp in Campbell River on Monday to prepare for Provincials in late July.

After the provincials, the Pinette family and Chimney Lake will play host a camp for Team B.C. August 5-8. The camp will include the Varas family from Chile in which all five of their children waterski. The family recently moved from Chile to Seattle, Washington after the dad took a job with Microsoft. Their second eldest son ski's for Team Chile and has skied at Pan Am Championships and the Junior Worlds last Spring.

Last Week’s Answers

The pros and cons of outdoor cooking I have been doing recent columns about barbecuing and outdoor cooking. If you have been spending some time outside and away from town, you will notice the many predator bugs are in the air just ready to pounce onto a piece of your skin. Usually these flying critters don’t like the smoke that accompanies a barbecue or campfire, and tend to back off somewhat, so that is another plus for outdoor cooking. Try cleaning fish outside and see how the bugs descend upon you in swarms. Learn to clean quickly and

keep the fish guts in a separate bag… seems to work for me… helps keep bears and other animals with sharp claws and lots of big teeth. My favourite method, for the time being, is using charcoal chunks for one of my outdoor barbecues. I can lower or raise the

charcoal tray, depending upon the heat. I also slip some alder on top of the coals to provide a nice smoked taste to whatever is on my menu. You could use these charcoal pieces in a campfire space, or almost anywhere, to have a hot fire that will last about 45 minutes, so if you need more time you can keep adding a few pieces at a time to extend that cooking period. Here is a nice funky recipe for cooking a dessert on the is very tasty and perhaps a little decadent as well...the chocolate and whipped

cream along with the pistachio have to try this one. Grilled dessert 1 - 16 ounce pound cake ½ cup of chopped pistachio ¾ cup of whipped cream ¼ cup of orange juice 1 cup of mixed sweet fruit 1 tbsp instant coffee 2 tbsp boiling water 1 tbsp corn syrup 8 ounces of semi sweet baking chocolate or chocolate syrup In a small bowl combine instant coffee and water, then in a separate saucepan, put in whipped cream and corn syrup. Let this

boil, remove from stove and put in coffee mix, then put in chocolate . Let this mixture sit for about 4 minutes then whisk and when it is smooth… cover. Slice pound cake into 1 inch pieces, then poke holes in each piece with a fork, then sprinkle orange juice over it. Put the slices on your barbecue on a hot grill and cook up to four minutes, turning over once. Remove cake from bbq and sprinkle with pistachio nuts, fruit, chocolate sauce and additional whipped cream if desired. Bye for now and Goood Cooking.
