52.1% Cathy McLeod earns majority vote as her Conservatives secure a majority in Ottawa By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER
As the polls closed on election day, Conservative candidate Cathy McLeod was visibly nervous. She spent the first hour looking at results on a computer, having a slice of pizza and doing what all politicians love to do — hold a baby. An hour later, the butterflies in her stomach flew away as the incumbent conservative MP won the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo riding in a landslide. McLeod finished the night with 29,682 votes, or 52 per cent, and finished off her closest opponent, NDP candidate Michael Crawford for a second time, this time by nearly 9,000 votes. Even McLeod was caught off guard by the results of the election. “To see these numbers looking very strong, again, what a surprise,” she said. “Hopefully, it means I’ve done a good job and our party’s policies are moving the country in the right direction.” McLeod said the key to her victory was her party’s economic plan to fight the recession of 2008. She believes the message to follow the plan through to the next phase resonated with voters.

Is it time for an NDP/Liberal union? By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER
With its party the Official Opposition — but its candidate chalking up a third loss — local NDP members think it’s time for a new coalition. “The vote was split in too many ways,” said Rick Turner, president of the Kamloops-North Thompson provincial constituency riding. “The question now is, will Canada become a two-party system? And, I think that’s what has to happen.” Thompson Rivers University political science instructor Derek Cook agrees. “There’s going to be tremendous pressure on the rest of the Liberals and Greens to get together with the NDP to prevent [Prime Minister Stephen] Harper from getting another majority in four years,” Cook said. “This was a very polarized election and, when you look at the popular vote, 60 per cent did not want the Conservatives.” Fair Vote Canada, a citizens’ campaign promoting election reform, has called the May 2 federal results an inaccurate reflection of how Canadians cast their ballots. The organization noted the Conservatives have 54.2 per cent of the seats in Parliament based on 39.6 per cent of the popular vote, calling it “one of the least legitimate majorities
in Canadian history.” That same analysis shows the NDP has seven seats more than its share of the popular vote reflects. Turner said he spoke with many Kamloopsians who identified themselves as Liberals, but told him they were going to vote NDP, something he suspects many were unable to do as they held their ballots in their hands. “It may have been they wanted to stop Harper, but they just couldn’t bring themselves to vote for the NDP,” Turner said. Cook said he won’t be surprised if a dialogue begins between the three non-government parties, but he’s not sure they will initiate it. “Just like the economic elite forced the Progressive Conservatives and the [Canadian] Alliance together, it may start from outside the party, from the social groups who don’t want another Harper majority.” Facing a third straight defeat, Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo NDP candidate Michael Crawford didn’t want to talk about another try. After thanking his campaign volunteers and acknowledging the breakthrough his party made nationally, Crawford declined to answer a reporter’s question about running again. “That’s a discussion for another day,” he said.

Michael Crawford, the NDP candidate for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, speaks to the press at his Tranquille Road headquarters on election night. Despite the New Democratic Party’s “orange surge” across Canada on Monday, Crawford was unsuccessful in his third straight bid to become MP, finishing a distant second to Conservative Cathy McLeod. Asked if he would consider running a fourth time in the next election — likely in 2015 — Crawford replied: “That’s a discussion for another day.” Dave Eagles/KTW

Kempling disappointed but says his point made By Christopher Foulds MANAGING EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
At 7 p.m., Chris Kempling finished his shift as a transit bus driver, during which he was recognized by one passenger. He then went to choir practice. Kempling walked through the doors of his home at 9:30 p.m., at which time
the Christian Heritage Party (CHP) candidate first learned of the sea change on the Canadian political landscape. Five minutes later, he answered a call from KTW. “I’m glad the Conservatives got a majority,” he said. “I think that will produce some stability.” Kempling said he was surprised to learn Green Leader Elizabeth May had defeated sit-
ting Conservative cabinet minister Gary Lunn in the riding of SaanichGulf Islands, chalking up the historic victory to “hard work.” “And the implosion of the Bloc — that’s the big story,” Kempling said. “That and the Liberals.” As for his showing, Kempling said he was disappointed. In this election, Kempling received 188

Local voter turnout better — slightly There are 89,964 registered voters in the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding. Of those, 59,935 cast a ballot in the federal election. That’s a voter turnout of 63.3 per cent, historically low, but better than this election’s national voter turnout of 61.4 per cent which, while a slight bit higher than the 2008 election’s all-time low of 58.8 per cent, is still

the third-lowest turnout in Canadian history. In fact, the three lowest voter-turnout elections — 58.8 per cent in 2008; 60.9 per cent in 2004 and 61.4 per cent on Monday — have all occurred in three of the last four elections. The 1958 election featured the largest voter turnout in Canadian history, when 79.4 per cent of registered voters cast ballots.

Liberal Todd wants another shot By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
The mood was sombre at KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Liberal candidate Murray Todd’s downtown Kamloops election headquarters on Monday night — as it was in many Grit campaign offices across the country. “It wasn’t the way it was supposed to turn out,” Todd told KTW moments after delivering a concession speech to about two-dozen supporters at his campaign office on Seymour Street. “The voters made a decision and they made a pretty decisive one.” After all the ballots were counted, Todd finished with 3.020 votes, behind Cathy McLeod, Michael Crawford and
Donovan Cavers. From the time the first numbers started to trickle in just before 8 p.m., Todd trailed by a fairly significant margin. He conceded at 8:30 p.m. and said he was surprised by the outcome. “I think we ran a decent campaign, but it didn’t resonate,” he said. “The great truism is you can’t argue with the result.” That goes for the national scene as well, where Todd’s Liberal party took a beating of historic proportions. Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff wasn’t even able to win his own riding of EtobicokeLakeshore in an election that saw the Grits drop to 34 seats from the 77 they held entering the election.

Todd spoke fondly of Ignatieff. “I think Ignatieff was great,” he said. “I think Ignatieff did a fine job. We had a fine platform. “Mr. Ignatieff is a quality leader. He’s a quality guy. “I think he tried to push the boulder up the hill.” The local candidate wouldn’t speculate on Ignatieff’s future with the party. “Anything is possible,” he said. “I’m not advocating anything. “I think it’s wait for tomorrow, let the dust kind of settle and then we can talk about that with a clearer head.” Locally, Todd thinks he lost some Liberal voters to the Conservatives in an effort to keep NDP Leader Jack Layton out

of the PM’s office. “I think there was strategic voting tonight,” he said. “The national campaign washed up on the shores of the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo. I think that’s why we ended up with this left-right split and the centre got squeezed.” That “squeeze” resulted in Stephen Harper’s Conservatives winning a majority government. Todd said it’s now
time for the Tories to show what they’re made of. “We’re going to see if they’re straight shooters or not,” he said. “A lot of people in this room think they’re not.” As for Todd’s future as a Liberal candidate, he said he’d like to give it another shot. “I think I’ll stick around if they want me,” he said.

Cavers happy with third Green candidate delighted his party leader won By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER
Green supporters finished off election day with a sweet taste in their mouths on Monday night — not only from the chocolate fountain at their post-election party, but because of the landmark successes the party achieved. Donovan Cavers, local Green candidate, watched the live feed of election results from The Art We Are store with friends, family and supporters. Cavers picked up the third spot in the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo riding with 3,062 votes, beating Liberal candidate Murray Todd, who finished with 3,020. Conservative incumbent Cathy
McLeod returns as MP. NDP candidate Michael Crawford finished second again. Nationally, Green Leader Elizabeth May won a seat in the Saanich-Gulf Islands riding. “Our party focused on getting our first MP, not winning — and now Elizabeth May is in,” Cavers said. Cheers were heard throughout the coffeehouse as May gave her speech, but Cavers admitted the final results were not what he had hoped for. “We were hoping for a minority or a coalition government, not a Conservative majority,” Cavers said. The venue was half-full throughout the night, with high spirits and partying over the
Green’s successes. Many stayed after the results and enjoyed the chocolate fountain provided by Cavers, who is also a chef who owns a catering company. “They’ve developed more of a platform that isn’t just focused on the environment,” said Madelaine McDougall, a Green supporter and friend of Cavers. McDougall said she usually votes for the NDP, but chose to support her friend in this election. Cavers explained the difference between this election and the one in 2008, in which he also ran, by saying this time: “I had a lot more help and there were more local initiatives that promoted me, like the transit fares going up.”
Together we will ﬁnd a solution. We understand what you’re going through.

A historic election in which very few bothered to take part
ISTORIC IS THE WORD being used to describe Monday’s federal-election results — and it is true. So many firsts in an election that needn’t have happened. But, it did and managed to offer stability in Parliament with no real chance of another election for four years. For the first time ever, the Conservative Party of Canada has a majority, free to implement policies and laws it wants without the need to negotiate with opposition parties. (Yes, this is the first Conservative majority as Stephen Harper’s party is not your father’s Progressive Conservatives. That party died when Peter MacKay backstabbed David Orchard at the convention that married the PCs to Reform/Canadian Alliance). For the first time ever, the New Democratic Party of Canada is the Official Opposition as Jack Layton’s “orange surge” battered the Liberals and, thankfully, reduced the separatist Bloc Quebecois to rump status. Even Bloc Leader Gilles Duceppe lost his seat in the purge that leaves the traitorous group with but four MPs in Quebec. Duceppe announced his resignation during his concession speech, though we suspect he will accept pension money from us vile Canadian taxpayers. For the first time ever, the Green Party of Canada elected a member of Parliament with leader Elizabeth May’s stunning victory over
CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom
MUSINGS Conservative Gary Lunn in SaanichGulf Islands. We all know the Greens focused almost everything on that riding and that the party’s sole focus in this election was to elect May. It succeeded and did so in amazing fashion, unseating a Conservative cabinet minister. For the first time ever, Canada’s natural governing party, otherwise known as the Liberal Party of Canada, finished third in an election, losing more than half its seats in the process. To further rub electorate iodine into its political wound, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff lost his seat, joining Duceppe on the outside looking in. We’re not sure, but that has to also be a political first — two party leaders losing their seats in the same federal election? Unlike Duceppe, Ignatieff said in his concession speech he would perhaps consider to serve. His actual words were less than enthusiastic, sounding more like a hungry kid facing a plate of liver,
onions and Brussel sprouts: “I will serve as long as the party wants to make me serve or ask me to serve . . .” Of course, the Liberals don’t want to “make” Ignatieff serve as leader, as was evident by his resignation the following morning. Ignatieff will soon be back between the halls of academia, lecturing students on the finer details of politics and world affairs. Like they say, those who can’t, teach. For the first time ever, the Greens finished ahead of an established party in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo as Donovan Cavers cooked up some support in edging out Liberal candidate Murray Todd for third-place honours. What wasn’t historic in this election was voter turnout — for reasons good and bad, but mostly due to the latter. While advance-polling numbers hit record levels across Canada, the final tally was tepid at best, with only 61.4 per cent of registered voters casting ballots. This eclipses the embarrassing alltime low mark of 58.8 per cent — set in the 2008 election — but remains as third-lowest voter turnout since Canada was born in 1867. If turnout figures in the past decade aren’t reason enough to revamp the electoral process to increase voter participation, what is? firstname.lastname@example.org chrisfoulds.blogspot.com
In 1993, Kim Campbell presided over a Progressive Conservative party that followed two massive majorities with a paltry two MPs after that vote. And, Campbell did not occupy one of those seats. That year saw Jean Chretien’s Liberals storm to power and grab hold of Parliament for the next 13 years. Only when the right merged did it finally gain a majority. Monday’s landmark Conservative victory could not have happened had the Progressive Conservatives and Reform/Canadian Alliance not merged in 2003. Today, there are New Democrats in Kamloops suggesting the same needs to be done on the left-of-centre side of the political spectrum if a party not called the Conservatives ever wants to form government again. As the editorial cartoon on this page illustrates, the political landscape in Canada has been flipped on its head. The Conservatives have the power of a majority, the New Democrats have Official opposition status, the Bloc Quebecois has been obliterated, the Liberals are in critical condition and the Greens have finally elected an MP. That’s a lot of parties and a lot of vote-splitting to be had — all of which weakens all but the governing party. If a merger is in the cards, will it be a Liberal/NDP union? Or, can a Liberal/NDP/Green coalition set up a true two-party system in time for the 2015 election? Time will definitely tell, though many political wounds have to first be dressed.

Hands up! Who wants more sanitized bathrooms? Editor: Have you ever thought about all the germs floating around in a public-school bathroom? Well, just the faucet handles alone can hold more than 50,000 germs! Imagine how many colds and flus start there, not to mention all the other possible germs and diseases. Think about the soap and paper towels everywhere, and the plugged sinks, and I don’t even want to describe the inside of the bathroom stalls. When you think about it, you also have to consider how many people do not wash their hands after using the bathroom. That means they’re touching the toilet handle, touching the lock on the stall door and even touching the bathroom-door handle. Or, maybe they do wash their hands, but still they’re touching the toilet handle, spreading the germs to the lock and also picking up more germs. Washing your hands is not a simple task. You push the soap dispenser — more germs. You spread the soap onto both hands and you then have to hold the faucet with one hand to keep the water running, making it impossible to scrub both hands under the water. You are simply getting more germs on your hands. If only there was a way to stop us kids and teens from catching these germs. Well, we no longer have to ponder what it would be like if we didn’t have to touch any thing because there are now auto-flush toilets, auto faucets, auto soap dispensers, not to mention automatic paper-towel dispensers and the foot handle that can be installed on bathroom doors so we don’t have to touch the germ-covered handles.

Q&A WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?
I still don’t understand why teens have to use germ-covered bathrooms, get sick and miss school. Why can’t the school system spend money to keep us healthy and keep us in school? There are so many other options that are safe for kids and teens — and the environment. Shannell Myers Grade 8 Kamloops
He may not have even realized this as he just said. “Maybe it’s your birthday” and then seemed to disappear. I did not get to thank him properly. His spontaneous act is very much appreciated and is a
real encouragement that we have many such considerate people in our community. Thank you.
visit the casino. Representatives of the branch stated this during a Jan. 27 meeting in the Kamloops Law Courts building. Those requesting answers were somewhat surprised at the response coming from a division of the provincial government. Most people are aware the chances of winning in a casino are extremely rare. However, when new mechanical/electronic devices are installed and appear to lessen the players’ chances even further, this causes concern. Most understand the odds of winning are against the player and favour the house in all casino card games or slot machines. The gaming enforcement branch stated a computer device called a random number generator determines all winning hands. Most know all computer software, chips
and other devices are programmable to produce whatever results intended by the designer. My concerns have been sidestepped by the B.C. Lottery Corporation and the gaming enforcement branch as they have failed to investigate the matter in a transparent and credible fashion. If anyone out there has similar concerns regarding the credibility of these games and devices, perhaps they might want to start requesting answers as to why this is being done. Perhaps it is time for the RCMP to become directly involved? If we, as players, are suspected of cheating in a casino, it is my understanding the RCMP is involved almost immediately.

Are players being dealt fair hands in those casinos? Editor: Have you been to the Lake City Casino in Kamloops, Kelowna or Pentiction lately? As a player, have you wondered why the five-card suited hand in the Texas Shootout card game has not been dealt in more than a year? A year earlier, Lake City Casinos used a different card shuffler that dealt these largest winning hands on a frequent basis to lucky players. Since the introduction of the newest shuffler, this highest payout hand in the game has not been dealt in more than a year. When asked to investigate the matter in 2010, B.C.’s gaming enforcement branch stated the card shufflers were functioning as designed and, if players had a problem with the games results, perhaps they shouldn’t

MINING WEEK 2011
Painting a mineral masterpiece By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
There’s a renaissance in the mining industry in B.C. — and the Kamloops region is the Da Vinci. There was nearly $1 billion spent in new mine development last year, and a good portion of that in Kamloops. “What’s happening here in Kamloops is tremendous,” said Pierre Gratton, president and CEO of the Mining Association of B.C. The head of the association was in Kamloops on Monday, May 2, to
recognize B.C. Mining Week, which actually starts next week. Though projects like New Gold’s New Afton mine are driving the growth of mining around the region, Gratton said Kamloops is also leading the way when it comes to successful partnerships between First Nations, the province and the industry. He said the region has “winning conditions” for mines to be successful. These conditions include good mines supported by engaged local First Nations communities, partnerships with Thompson Rivers
University and the B.C. Aboriginal Mine Training Association and revenuesharing with bands and the province. “If we can take all of that and reproduce that in other regions of the province, we’ll have a really successful mining industry,” Gratton said. The Tk’emlups and Skeetchestn Indian bands signed a historic mining revenue-sharing agreement with the province. The Economic and Community Development Agreement, which was signed last August, will give the two bands 37.5 per cent of the mineral-tax revenue
collected by the province from the New Afton mine. It’s predicted the agreement will bring the two bands $30 million in revenue during the life of the mine, which is expected to be about 12 years. Tk’emlups Chief Shane Gottfriedson said the band has worked hard to create partnerships with the industry, which he noted are starting to pay off. He said the minesharing agreement for New Afton will kick in when the mine is fully operational in 2012. Though Gottfriedson
considers the mining industry to be important to the TIB, he cautioned the band will be closely watching a pair of potential mines in the area. The TIB has come out in opposition of a potential mine project in the Heffley Creek area because it’s located on culturally sensitive Douglas Reserve landclaim area. Meantime, the TIB is working with Abacus Mining and Exploration Corp. as its Ajax mine proposal just south of Kamloops makes its way through the province’s environmental process.
Downtown geocaching contest part of a busy week By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Downtown Kamloops is abundant in natural beauty and contains geological and mining commodities that often go unnoticed. The Kamloops Exploration Group (KEG) wants to reveal some of those treasures to Kamloops residents in conjunction with B.C. Mining Week, which begins on May 8. Along with the Mining Association of British Columbia, the KEG is organizing events that include geocaching, rock analysis and informational displays to shed light on the importance of the mining industry. “We want to show how geology and mining
affects everyday life,” said the KEG’s Royanna Wild . “Mining products are in our toothpaste, our cellphones, our cars.” The KEG is holding a downtown geology geocaching tour that will take participants across 12 sites, revealing geology and mining throughout the downtown area. As with typical geocaching, participants will be given co-ordinates to the sites, using GPS to find the exact location. Participants must then answer a question about the location to ensure they have located the correct place. Those who answer all of questions are able to enter their geocaching questionnaire in a draw and potentially win a GPS device.
“One site is going to be at St. Andrews on the Square and we will ask about the object inside the square,” Wild said. For those who don’t own a GPS device, a map will be provided. The geocaching is expected to take two or three hours and can easily be completed on foot as the route was designed as a circuit. Anyone can participate by simply downloading the forms on the KEG website (keg.bc.ca) or by picking them up at the Kamloops Museum, at Seymour Street and Second Avenue.
Completed geocaching questionnaires must be dropped off at the Kamloops Museum by May 31 to be entered in the draw, which will be held on June 1. BC Mining Week will include a Saturday, May 7, Ask-A-Geologist session at the Kamloops Museum at 1 p.m. Ed Frey and Don Bouffard will be the volunteer geologists assessing rocks brought in by the public. There will also be a display set up with information about local geology and mining and how they affect society and

Fiery truck crash sends driver to RIH A trucker was rushed to Royal Inland Hospital with serious burns following a fiery collision on the Coquihalla just before midnight on Monday, May 2. Emergency crews were called to the wreck — near the weigh scales west of Kamloops — at about 11:30 p.m. Police believe a semi with a very heavy load was travelling slowly on the descent into Kamloops when it was struck from behind by an empty tractor-trailer moving at full highway speed. The two rigs became locked together before the empty truck’s cab became crushed and burst into flames. The driver of the crushed truck got out of the vehicle on his own, but not before suffering second- and third-degree burns to his chest. He was treated by passersby before being

A call to feed many more By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER
In recent days, if a politician called you at home, it was usually an automated pitch for your vote. Not a recent call to Bernadette Siracky’s house, one that brought news of a bonus funding allotment on top of the $100,000 the Kamloops Food Bank receives from the province’s gambling-revenue coffers. At the other end of the call to the food bank’s executive director was KamloopsNorth Thompson Liberal MLA Terry Lake — and another $25,000 to help the agency this year. It’s the result of Premier Christy Clark’s re-evaluation of how
gambling revenue is allocated in the province and the $15 million the premier put back into that account after she succeeded Gordon Campbell. Lake said the government went through the lists of agencies and organizations that receive money. “And the food bank got the extra funding because of how it makes a difference in our community, he said. Lake noted the food bank “has tremendous respect and support in the community” and a strong connection not only with the increasing numbers it helps feed monthly, but with those who donate or volunteer. Lake noted even during his time as Kamloops mayor, he was impressed with
Eat well and eat free: A timely talk on producing food locally As the cost of food rises across the globe, there is a push to localize food production. Today (May 4) at 7 p.m., the Kamloops Food Policy Council, in partnership with the city, Thompson Rivers University and Urban Systems Ltd., is hosting Darrin Nordahl at Thompson Rivers University’s Clocktower Theatre. Nordahl is the author of the book Public Produce: The New Urban Agriculture. He is also a landscape architect and an urban planner from Davenport, Iowa, who has been working with municipalities throughout North America on planting healthy food in public spaces. Tonight’s event is free and open to the public. The visit by Nordahl is timely for the Kamloops Food Policy Council as the group is planning to create a public edible garden in the 100-block of Victoria Street in the downtown core. The Kamloops Public Produce project will be a public garden growing all kinds of vegetables — from tomatoes, squash and carrots, to edible flowers for bees to pollinate — for anyone to eat, at no cost. The garden will consist of a series of raised beds, on a thin strip of land that is now vacant.

how food bank staff was never confrontational but, rather, “would invite you in and explain what they were doing and why. It was always an open conversation.” Siracky said the money comes at a time when the food bank is seeing a steady increase in need from everyone from infants to seniors, all of whom rely on its hampers to get through.
Lake couldn’t predict if the new allotment will continue next year. The government is reassessing the entire gambling-revenue process but, with the government operating in a deficit now, Lake said “it’s a struggle. You’re spending your kids’ money.” He said the direction to be taken on allocation of the funds will be clearer later this year.

Give mom a gift that will have her thinking of you always If you ask any mom, she will tell you not a day goes by that she isn’t thinking about or worrying about her children. Therefore, Mother’s Day is a time to show your mom how much you appreciate all the time, worry and love she has put into raising you. Show her that you think about her as much as she worries about you. Give her a gift that is a constant reminder of your love for her. Here are some ideas: • Make the traditional unique: While picture frames and greeting cards are thoughtful, make them all the more unique by purchasing ones that allow you to leave a message with a voice recording on it. Whenever your mom reads the card or looks at
the picture in the frame, she can hear your sweet voice accompanying it every time. • Sponsor a child: This monthly donation to a charity will not only be a reminder each month of
the difference that has been made in her name, but she will also receive a letter and photo of her sponsored child so she can learn about the needs of those in other countries. This gift shows her she has raised you to follow her example of responsibility and compassion. • Purchase a magazine subscription: Select a magazine that matches your mom’s interests and order a full year’s subscription. Each month when she receives her gift, she will remember how much you love her. This will also remind her to take some time to relax and indulge her interests each month. newscanada.com

Mother’s Day Brunch
10 ways to charm mom The beloved tradition of dedicating a day to officially honour mothers and grandmothers started back in May of 1908 — and the yearly tradition has gained momentum ever since. Every spring now, hundreds of countries, from Canada to Kenya to Kuwait, celebrate their own version of Mother’s Day. Here are 10 wonderful ways to charm her: 1. Make a photo collage of her favourite memories with you and your family. 2. If she’s an avid reader, start a personal tradition. At the beginning of every month, send each other books you’ve just finished. Or, take it a step further and start a virtual book club: Buy two copies of any book and schedule a time on Skype to talk about each one. 3. If buying a gift, show some thought for her individuality. Whether it’s selecting a favourite game, or TV show on DVD or finding just the right charm to symbolize a special moment, give something to honour her interests. 4. Assemble a basket of her favourite things to ensure rest and relaxation. You might include magazines, slippers, a scented candle or even an IPod already pro-

grammed with selections she likes. 5. Make a mosaic using some old dishes that are chipped or cracked. It’s a great way to keep a pattern or the colour of china she loves within the house. 6. Give flowers that last. Potted blooms can be re–planted in her garden and will last through the summer. Consider colourful “floral gems” like earrings, pendants and charms as an alternative to cut flowers. 7. Prepare a home–cooked meal with an old family recipe. Scan or type up her favourite recipe cards and bind them together to make a family cookbook. 8. Plan a DIY spa day for two. Plan some do-it-yourself pampering with natural ingredients from her kitchen. Think about inviting friends and family to join in the fun. 9. If you live close to mom, make a standing date with her to catch up. Mark the time for dinners or movies right on her calendar. 10. If you live far away, use Skype to connect distances in a more personal way. You can share afternoon tea or chat together over lunch. newscanada.com

This Mother’s Day . . . THINK PAMPERING . . . Think . . .
A Mother’s Day health reminder As we celebrate Mother’s Day on May 8, the Canadian Diabetes Association wants to ensure all mothers who have had gestational diabetes are getting screened for type 2 diabetes regularly — and that everyone recognizes and acts quickly on the warning signs of diabetes in children. Just like Mother’s Day, gestational diabetes can pass; however, it should not be forgotten. The Canadian Diabetes Association has developed resources to ensure mothers are getting tested for type 2 diabetes if they have had gestational diabetes. The association has also developed resources to ensure parents and other caregivers recognize the warning signs that diabetes is developing in a child, so they can prevent it from progressing to a devastating situation. These resources are based on the association’s internationally recognized 2008 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of Diabetes in Canada and are available online at diabetes. ca/protectingmothers and diabetes.ca/protectingchildren. Every year, between three and 20 per cent (depending on risk factors) of pregnant women across Canada develop gestational diabetes (GDM), a temporary form of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. Although blood-glucose levels usually return to normal following delivery, these women are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In fact, 20 per cent of women who have had gestational diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within nine years of the pregnancy and 30 per cent will develop diabetes within 15 years. However, less than half of women who have had gestational diabetes are screened for diabetes after delivery. Women who have had
gestational diabetes need to be tested for type 2 diabetes between six weeks and six months after giving birth; when planning another pregnancy; and every three years (or more often, depending on other risk factors for diabetes). Visit diabetes.ca/pro-
tectingmothers and diabetes.ca/protectingchildren to view the Protecting Mothers and Protecting Children resources, along with other healthy guidelines. Visit getcheckednow. ca to learn more about getting checked for type 2 diabetes.

Give a gift with love and thought
ANY PEOPLE ARE STILL facing tough economic times. Whether you’re young or old, it can be tough to come up with affordable gifts for those you love. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s important to start thinking of thoughtful ideas within your budget. Before you head to the mall to splurge on something she doesn’t need, consider these ideas that won’t cost you a small fortune: • Nail Polish: Bottles of nail polish range from $5 to $15, depending on the brand you buy. For those wanting to spend a little more, why not pamper mom with a manicure or pedicure so she can relax and take time for herself? • Eco–friendly tote bag: For $2 each, you can assemble a collection of cute, small and inexpensive reusable enviro–carriers. These portable little bags can even fit in mom’s purse. Every time she uses it, she will think about you and, best of all, it will show that she is environmentally savvy. • A charitable gift donation: Charities like the Christian Children’s Fund of Canada offer life–saving and tax–deductible gifts for families in need starting at just $15.
You can choose a gift perfectly suited for your mom and write a card in her honour at ccfcanada.ca. Is your mom a teacher? Purchase school supplies for children in Africa. Is she a gardener? Purchase a gardenseed kit for a farmer in Latin America. Is she a stay-at-home mom? Purchase a loan for a mom in India so she can start her own small business. Be creative and show mom how her generosity inspired you to help others.

Green Raine sees Senate reform
PICKS OF THE WEEK!
By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER
As the election dust settled and the party at Cathy McLeod’s campaign headquarters into the evening, quietly working away in the corner was Sen. Nancy Green Raine. The most-famous Sun Peaks resident was busy writing down the poll-by-poll numbers in the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo riding. Nothing pleased the senator more than the results. With a Conservative majority, she said, the party can focus on what needs to be
done — which she believes will include Senate reform. Green Raine said it was important for the Tories to get a majority in both chambers before reform can begin, adding some changes will be easier than others. She said setting term limits on senators shouldn’t be too difficult and will likely get done in the next year. Greene Raine is in favour of limiting term lengths of senators to eight or 10 years. She said Conservatives need to make the provinces aware of the opportunity to elect senators-in-waiting. Though members of the Red Chamber will still need to appointed by the prime
minister, Green Raine said Stephen Harper has made it clear he will appoint any senator elected by the people. “Over the next four years as terms come up, I think the provinces should take a good hard look at having people run for senators-in-waiting,” she said. However, the reform that Green Raine predicts to be the most difficult will be a move to proportional representation among the provinces. She said that will likely mean opening the Constitution, and suggested for Ontario and Quebec to give up their “advantage” would be “hard to do. B.C. has six senate seats compared to 24 each in Ontario and Quebec.
Mayor looks forward to continued relationship with MP XFrom A1
McLeod also suggested the party’s victory will mean four years of stability. “We’re changing the landscape of politics in Canada,” she said. When word arrived at around 8 p.m. that McLeod was heading back to Ottawa, the party at her campaign headquarters moved into full swing. Dozens of Tory supporters were on hand to celebrate and congratulate the MP on the success of her campaign and the party’s, including Sen. Nancy Green Raine. Green-Raine was confident McLeod would prevail, calling the
MP “astute” and “well respected. “Why would it change all that much?” she asked, nodding to the results on Monday compared to 2008. Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar, who stopped by the MP’s Seymour Street campaign headquarters, said he has enjoyed working with McLeod and will continue with the relationship in her second term. He said the city will sit down with McLeod to see what kind of funding structures the new federal government will have in place in the next few years. As the evening wound down, all that was left was the concilia-
tory handshake and hugs from her opponents. Crawford walked into McLeod’s campaign headquarters for the second straight election — in defeat. Foes for two elections, Crawford quickly made his way to McLeod and offered a hug and congratulations. But, on an election night like no other, the two main rivals in the riding couldn’t help but share their thoughts on the historic results. Crawford remarked that McLeod’s party finally has its majority, while the re-elected MP congratulated him for his party’s success nationally as it surpassed 100 seats to become Official
Opposition. McLeod said she was proud to see the NDP strong in Quebec. “I think they’ll [NDP] be so much better for our country,” she said. “There’s some good stories coming out of this election,” Crawford responded. Liberal and Green candidates Murray Todd
and Donovan Cavers also stopped by the party to offer congratulations. In the end, McLeod managed to not only gain votes in 2011, but increase her overall percentage of the vote in the riding. In 2008, the MP received 25,209 votes, or 46 per cent of the popular vote.

RITISH Columbia does not produce enough top-level soccer talent and that needs to change. That was the message from Dante Zanatta, Thompson Okanagan Football Club’s (TOFC) technical director, who was at the Tournament Capital Centre speaking to parents and players last week. TOFC is part of the newly formed EA Sports B.C. Soccer Premier League (BCSPL), a league designed to streamline the path to university-, professional-, provincial-, and national-level soccer programs. “We have been pulling players from different avenues. There’s been no strategy,” Zanatta said. “We’re technically poor and we are not good enough to compete at the next level.” The formation of the BCSPL, Zanatta said, is a step in the right direction. The league’s coaches will follow uniform technicalskill curriculum and keep detailed player profiles, which will be filed in a scouting database. “We want to harmonize all elite levels of programming in B.C. to alleviate congestion and provide clarity,” Zanatta said. Joining TOFC in the BCSPL are Abbotsford, Burnaby/North Shore, Coquitlam, Vancouver Island, South Fraser, Surrey and Vancouver.
A seven-game miniseason, which will run from September to November, offers TOFC time to get organized before the first full season kicks off late next February. The boys’ and girls’ age divisions for the 2012 season are under-13, under14, under-15, under-16 and under-17. Kamloops Youth Soccer Association president Graham Cope will represent TOFC on the BCSPL’s board of governors. He hopes to see an under18 division formed in 2013. As has always been the case for elite soccer players in the River City, a great deal of travel will be required to pursue the game they love. The Kamloops contingent of players who crack TOFC squads will practice three times a week, once in Kamloops and twice in either Kelowna or Vernon. There will be 21 games in the regular season, with 14 of those contests being home games. Cope said he would like to see the Tournament Capital host three or four of those home matches. “I will be pushing for as many games as Kamloops can get,” Cope said. “The more Kamloops players that participate, the more matches we will see in Kamloops. As long as Kelowna players dominate the rosters, Kelowna will see the lion’s share of the games.” TOFC tryouts, which run from June 13 to June 16

in Kelowna and June 20 to June 23 in Vernon, are open to all comers. “Any player, from anywhere, is eligible to play [for TOFC] if they meet the technical standard,” Cope said. “It is reasonable to expect that most players will come from the ranks of TOYSL [Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League] rep teams and current Super Y-League teams.” Zanatta, a former provincial-level coach, is in charge of deciding which players crack TOFC squads. He will be assisted by other coaches and evaluators. Each TOFC squad will be made up of 18 players, two of them goalies. It will cost between $2,500 and $3,000 — travel and registration costs included — to put one player through a TOFC season, Cope said. Coaches interested in applying for a position with TOFC can apply online at thompsonokanaganfc.com. Applications must be submitted by Thursday, May 5. Neither Cope or Zanatta were able to say exactly how much coaches will be paid. “Coaching remuneration will be competitive with other BCSPL franchises,” Cope said. “We are still fine-tuning our budget and sourcing sponsorship funds.” Coaches will likely be paid more than $2,000 per season, Cope said at the meeting.

Jamie Inglis named Kamloops Long Blades’ skater of the year Jamie Inglis was the big winner at the Kamloops Long Blades Club Awards Banquet, which was held last week at St. Andrews on the Square. He won the club’s Stan Vyse Memorial Award, which goes to the skater of the year. Inglis qualified to compete for Team B.C. at the Canada Games in Halifax in February, represented Canada in World Cup action, represented B.C. at Canada Cup competitions and skated at the Can Am Long Track Speed Skating competition. Karen MacLaren was named the coach of the year award; Eric Villeneuve was given the official of the year award; Wendy Neville received the volunteer of the year award; and Mackenzie Neville won the youth volunteer of the year award.
signed up for the camp, which runs on Saturday, May 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, May 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There were four camp spots still open as of Monday, May 2. The cost of registration is $100 for both days or $60 for one day. Last-minute registrations at the track on Saturday morning will be accepted. Harris, the father and trainer of perennial BMX professional Bubba Harris, comes
to the River City annually at the behest of Kamloops BMX. “He is phenomenal with the kids,” said Colleen Botchar, who has been involved with Kamloops BMX for more than 20 years. “Burlin has taken riders right to that Olympic level of training.” Harris brings a stable of established BMX trainers across North America to help him school camp-goers. “You can train with some of the best BMX racers in world,”
Botchar said. “Everybody can take something away from this training camp.” Included in last year’s batch of helpers were American AA pro rider Deak Brown and Brandon Little, who races on the ABA Canadian National Series. Supercamp participants will receive lunch, snacks and water on both Saturday and Sunday. For more information, email Botchar at clbotchar@hotmail. com.

A ride in the Spanish countryside
â€™VE PICKED MY next career. If I ever decide to give up personal training or group fitness (which really wonâ€™t be anytime soon), Iâ€™m going to become a bike guide. I know, often jobs that look glamorous really arenâ€™t that way when you get into them for real. Being on a bike all day every day might sound like heaven on earth, but add in chaffing, grumpy clients, traffic and the odd flat tire, and suddenly it sounds
SHAWN WENGER Fitness For MORTALS like work. Often when we take hobbies and turn them into jobs, they arenâ€™t as much fun as when it was a choice rather than a requirement. Sometimes, weâ€™re
lucky though and it continues to be a passion. Thatâ€™s the perfect job. The other element that attracts me to cycle touring is the calorie burn. While riding in Mallorca, Spain, for our 10-day training camp, I saw days where the heart-rate monitor watch said Iâ€™d burned 5,000 calories. It was the best way to survive the vacation buffet twice per day since the trip included breakfast and dinner. We found lunch at
cafĂŠs out on the road and discovered some beautiful small towns and bays where we could sit and observe the local people as well as the vast numbers of cycling tourists from all over Europe, especially Germany. And I made the ultimate discovery . . . switchbacks. Theyâ€™re everywhere. Most hill climbs involve switchbacks, which are 180-degree corners with slight uphill ramps to the next 180-degree corner. Technique number one: Stand in the corner
to power up the steep part and sit when the grade decreases, shooting out of the corner and into the straightaway, where you either power to the next corner, or gasp for air in preparation for it. Technique number two: Seated climb through the steep part of the corner, take it wide and use the crack-thewhip feeling, drop a couple of gears and power into the flat-ish ramp to the next corner. I loved it. XSee SPAINâ€™S A27

Blazers ready for bantam draft The Kamloops Blazers select fourth in the first round at the Western Hockey League bantam draft on Thursday, May 5, in Calgary. Highly-touted youngsters who might wind up on the Blazers’ roster with the fourth
pick include Ryan Gropp, a forward from Kamloops, Jake Virtanen, a forward from Abbotsford, Brycen Martin, a defenceman from Calgary, Ryan Pilon, a defenceman from Saskatchewan, and Jordan Thomson, a
defenceman from Manitoba. Thomson is rumoured to be in favour with the Blazers’ brass and there is a good chance he will still be on the board when the fourth pick rolls around. As it stands now,
Kamloops does not have another pick until the third round (50th overall), but trading up is not out of the question. The Blazers will likely pick 10 players at the draft, said Matt Recchi, the club’s director of player personnel.

Spain’s glow to Kamloops’ snow XFrom A25
We each put in almost 1,000-kilometres in 10 days and my 10-year-old son managed 350, so I’m a proud mom. He had one 92-kilometre day, which he will talk about for months to come. I think he might be trying to block the trandem from his memory, though. He didn’t like
relinquishing control of the steering, gears and brakes, especially when I played with a few high-speed turns. However, when he discovered he could ride with no hands and very little pressure on the pedals, he was slightly converted to tandem riding. We returned home, hoping spring had arrived only to find two inches of snow cover-
ing the ground the next morning. We finished our Spain videos with a nice mountain bike ride in the snow. What a great way to get a jump on the season. Normally, at this time of year, I would just be transitioning from indoor trainer to outdoor rides and this year I was able to stash the trainer and get outside a couple weeks
early. The downside — two more weeks of riding inside would have produced a lot less bills. Shawn Wenger is a BCRPA-registered personal trainer and weight-training and group-fitness instructor. She runs Fitness For Mortals. E-mail email@example.com for information.

Here in B.C. we often take our tap water for granted, but it is a ﬁnite resource that we should value
at a glance
Q25% of Canadians have no idea where the water that ﬂows out of their taps comes from. QCanadians use an average of 329 litres of water per day - twice the amount used by Europeans. However, the average Canadian thinks they use only 79 litres per day. QCanadians admit to knowingly engaging in water wasting activities such as leaving the tap running while washing dishes (44%) and hosing down their driveways (19%). QCanadians are more concerned with saving electricity than water: 29% of Canadians don’t know what they pay for their water, but only 10% don’t know what they pay for their electricity bill.
We need to value our drinking water industry and agriculture, and the effects of climate change all place enormous pressure on our water supply.” Drinking Water Week, May 1st - 7th, is dedicated to creating awareness of the value of our water, our water systems, and the people who make it accessible and safe for us to drink. Many communities throughout B.C. are holding events to celebrate Drinking Water Week, including hosting tours of their local reservoirs and treatment plants, and we encourage you to take the time to visit them. Check your local newspaper to ﬁnd out about events in your community, or visit www.drinkingwaterweek. org for activities and educational resources provided by the BC Water & Waste Association.

True and False: Test your water knowledge by trying our quiz. 1. British Columbians use less water each day compared to other Canadians. 2. Most indoor water use occurs in the bathroom. 3. It does not matter what we put down our drains, as all of our wastewater gets treated in B.C.
QInstall low-ﬂow shower heads
T__ F__ T__ F__ T__ F__
QUse rain barrels QAvoid watering your lawn in the summer
ANSWERS: 1; F. British Columbia residents use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the national average of 329 litres. 2; T. We use 65% of our water in the bathroom, 20% for laundry, 10% for drinking and kitchen needs, and 5% for cleaning. 3; F. While it is true that most wastewater in B.C. is treated before it is returned to its source, we should be careful not to put harmful substances down our drains or in our gardens. These substances can harm fish and other aquatic creatures (check with your municipality to find out how to properly dispose of harsh chemicals).
When you turn on your tap and clean, safe water comes out,do you ever stop to think: how does it get there? Who brings it you? Where does it end up when you’re ﬁnished with it? BC Water & Waste Association and the Province of British Columbia have ofﬁcially proclaimed Drinking Water Week May 1st to 7th, 2011. We invite you to celebrate this exciting week by “getting to know your H2O” – including where it comes from, where it goes, and how you can protect and conserve it. Here in B.C., where we have an abundance of natural resources, we often take our tap water for granted. However, there is no such thing as ‘new water’ – the water that we use continually cycles through the environment, and is reused again and again. British Columbians personally use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the Canadian average of 329 litres per day. That is about double what Europeans use! Although it may not be apparent to all of us, the costs and energy required to deliver water to our taps, treat it to be safe and clean, and safeguard the environment by managing wastewater, add up to billions of dollars every year in Canada. Daisy Foster, CEO of the 4,400-member BC Water & Waste Association notes, “Increases in our population, the growth of

Sir, you’re making a scene Try to imagine The Simpsons doing Shakespeare and you’ve got an idea of what MacHomer’s all about By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER
HE ADVERTISING FOR THIS PLAY IS SPOT-ON: ONE DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY DOES ANOTHER. Or, to create a visual image, Homer as MacBeth, Marg as Lady MacBeth, Bart as who-knows as Rick Miller presents his version of the Shakespearean play. MacHomer is a one-man show — but only in the sense that it’s just Miller who will be onstage at Sagebrush Theatre on May 8. But, it will be a cast of more than 50 as Miller captures the voice of pretty much anyone who’s ever been on The Simpsons as he acts out Macbeth. Backing him will be a multi-media presentation that creates the appropriate setting as Miller takes his audience to the inevitable — yet comedyfilled — ending of what Shakespeare had written to be a tragedy. It’s one of two bonus shows Western Canada Theatre is bringing in to help its bottom line. WCT artistic director Daryl Cloran said government cuts to the theatre’s budget and uncertainty what new Premier Christy Clark has planned leaves them working “under a cloud.” X See MacHOMER B3

“So, we’re doing it mainly as a fundraiser,” Cloran said. “We could do another gala, but we thought we’d play to our strength.” In addition to MacHomer, WCT will host Mom’s The Word Remixed from May 18 to May 20, also at Sagebrush Theatre. Cloran saw MacHomer in Toronto about a decade ago and called it “ridiculously good, high energy and a ton of fun.” Miller recreates the play, albeit a slightly condensed version that ends with “a megamix finale,” Cloran said. “You don’t have to know the story of Macbeth to love it.” While McHomer was Miller’s first foray into oneman comedy, it isn’t his last. He hosts ABC’s Just for Laughs, has won three Dora awards, including best actor and is artistic director of the theatre company Wyrd Productions, which has created several comedies. Entertainment Weekly has called him “one of the 100 most-creative people alive today.” Tickets are $35 and are available at the Kamloops Live

Notes on: Alamagokus ■ WHO: Alamagokus takes its name from a children’s show in the 1980s that band members Matt McLaughlin, Nathan Chils and Eric Schwalb — friends for decades — used to watch. Magic words uttered in Today’s Special — hocus pocus alamagokus — would bring a mannequin to life. ■ WHAT: The band crosses genres, McLaughlin said, and has been known to show up wearing dresses, makeup and a cardboard television hat. Suffice to say if it’s fun, they’ll be playing it, or, as Schwalb said, “we take the music seriously, not ourselves.” ■ WHEN: The band started as a joke, but became something else as the three friends spent more and more time rehearsing and then doing shows. While it’s not their main jobs — McLaughlin’s a Thompson Rivers University student, Childs works for Rocky Mountain Railtour and Schwalb says he spends his time as an underwater basket-weaver — it’s taking up more and more of their spare time. ■ WHERE: They’ve played everwhere, from the

Royal Canadian Legion to the Pogue Mahone Irish Alehouse to The Blue Grotto. They’re particularly stoked about a free show at The Art We Are on May 27 that will be a celebration of local art and have several other local musicians sharing the stage. And, if you’re listening out there, they’d really love to play the Commodore Grand Cafe and Lounge. ■ WHY: There are many reasons why they remain friends, bonded ever stronger by the music. Schwalb says they share the same sense of humour, always loved jamming for friends or at parties and have an ability to write together, rehearse together, perform together and stay friends. ■ HOW: How to follow them?

New York shows autos
JIM ROBINSON First DRIVE
T SUBARU IMPREZA VW BEETLE
HIS YEAR’S NEW YORK AUTO SHOW WAS STRANGELY DIFFERENT FROM THOSE THAT HAVE GONE BEFORE. With the Shanghai Auto Show happening at the same time, manufacturers were left having to decide where to display what. If you have just one concept car, do you take it to China, which is now the biggest market for cars in the world, or do you go to New York, which is fast becoming the most-important car show in the West? Some, like Mercedes-Benz with the Concept A-Class or Volkswagen with the new Beetle, did both. Nissan, Kia, Fiat and Ford went for New York and, on the whole, I think New York got the better of the deal. Besides more than a dozen world premieres in New York, there was a host of North American debuts of some pretty significant vehicles. Here are some of the world premieres at New York: X See CARMAKERS B8

X From B7
Nissan: It was a very good show for Nissan, with the all-electric LEAF being named the World Car of the Year by an international jury of automotive writers. The recognized leader in all-electric cars, Nissan showed the LEAF Nismo RC (Racing Competition) racecar. Nissan is now looking at the racing world
as a way to draw attention to the seemingly untapped potential of electric vehicles. In preliminary testing, the Nismo RC accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 6.85 seconds and has a top speed of 93 miles per hour. It is projected to have a running time of around 20 minutes under racing conditions. But, the biggest news in New York from Nissan was the show-
ing of the new Versa sedan. Gone are the quirky lines, replaced by a more contemporary design because the Versa will now be a “world car” to be sold in all Nissan markets. The 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan, which goes on sale at Nissan dealers this summer with a starting price of (US) $10,990, features a sophisticated exterior design, well-appointed interior and exceptional room for five adults
including more rear legroom than many mid-size sedans.
Volkswagen: Shown simultaneously in Shanghai and New York, the 2012 Beetle is only the third generation of one of the world’s most-iconic cars. The Beetle breaks free of the design geometry defined by three semi-circles (front wing, rear wing, domed roof above it). The 2012 Beetle is 71.2 inches wide (3.3 inches wider), 58.5 inches tall (0.5 inches lower) and 168.4 inches long (six inches longer). The new focal point is the C-pillar. The development team also increased the car’s track widths and wheelbase. The 2012 Beetle will offer three engines: The 2.5-litre gasoline five-cylinder, the 2.0-litre TDI Clean Diesel and the 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged gaso-
line engine. Transmission choices will include a five-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic on 2.5-litre models.
Chrysler: Chrysler continues to expand its Dodge, Jeep and 300 lineups with the vaunted SRT8 back with a vengeance. As the king of
the lineup, the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 adds high-performance hardware to the elegant proportions and headturning design, with a 6.4-litre Hemi V8 producing 465 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Projected performance numbers include zero to100 km/h acceleration in the high four-second range;
quarter-mile in the high 12-second range; zero to 160 km/h in less than 16 seconds, top speed of 280 km/h and stopping power from 100 to zero km/h in 37 metres. Dodge also unveiled its version of the Charger SRT8 along with the Jeep SRT8, both boasting the same engine and horsepower. X See AUTOMAKERS B9

The Jeep SRT8 is the best-performing Jeep vehicle ever, with a zero to 96 km/h time of 4.8 seconds; quartermile in the mid-13 second range; top speed 250 km/h; 96 to zero km/h braking in 116 ft. It is also the besthandling Jeep vehicle ever, featuring an advanced new adaptive damping suspension managed by a new Selec-Track system, delivering up to 0.90 grams on the skid pad.
Fiat: Already one of the most sought-after cars on the road, Fiat staged the world debut of the 500c (convertible) in New York. The 2012 Fiat 500c features a premium dual-layer, poweroperated cloth top that is designed to deliver all-season driving pleasure with the top up or down. With just the push of a button, the Fiat 500c’s power-operated cloth top retracts up to the rear spoiler during speeds up to 60 m.p.h. The Fiat 500c offers comfort for four passengers, three exterior soft-top colors, 14 exterior colours, 12 unique seat colors and material combinations plus a choice of two interior
environments to allow customers to personalize “their own” Fiat 500c.
Ford: It may be still early in the 2011 model year, but Ford came to New York with a whole model lineup for the 2013 Taurus. Taurus is the first car in Ford’s North American lineup to offer the advanced 2.0litre EcoBoost engine, combining a turbocharger with gasolinedirect injection. It is expected to deliver best-in-class highway fuel economy of at least 31 m.p.g. Providing plenty of power, the 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine will deliver an estimated 237 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. The 2013 Taurus SHO sedan is the sportiest model yet to wear the SHO badge. It is powered by an EcoBoost V6 engine, producing 365 horsepower and 350 poundfeet of torque.
Chevrolet: Chevrolet celebrated Earth Day at the New York Auto Show by
introducing the new 2013 Malibu ECO, the most fuel-efficient midsize sedan in its 100year history. It features eAssist “light electrification” technology, which is engineered to deliver an estimated 26 m.p.g. in city driving and 38 m.p.g. on the highway without compromising performance. Malibu ECO’s eAssist system is mated to a 2.4-litre Ecotec directinjection four-cylinder engine and next-generation six-speed automatic transmission. ECO is based on the all-new 2013 Malibu sedan, which will be sold in nearly 100 countries on six continents. Sales of the new Malibu begin with the ECO model in early 2012. The Malibu LS, LT and LTZ trim level offerings join the ECO in summer 2012. Pricing will be announced later.
Kia: Following the world premiere in March at the Geneva Motor Show of the 2012 Rio hatchback, Kia chose New York to reveal the sedan
to find your lost pet?
to a redesigned hood and new front and rear bumpers.
Subaru: New York saw the world reveal of the fourth-generation 2012 Impreza featuring a longer wheelbase, but with shorter overhangs. The new Impreza provides a roomier interior in the same external footprint as the outgoing model. The new passenger cabin not only yields more room, but crucially, a greater feeling of spaciousness and better visibility than before. Subaru will offer two different symmetrical all-wheel drive systems in the new Impreza.
Mercedes-Benz: The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe was shown to the world in New York, featuring a 6.3-litre, DOHC V8 with 451 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. The optional AMG Development Package raises power to 481 horsepower for a top speed of 174 m.p.h. and a zero to 60 m.p.h. of 4.3 seconds.

version of the Rio. Available in three trims (LX, EX and SX), the 2012 Rio is available with a 1.6-litre, gasoline direct-injection (GDI) four-cylinder with the option of either a six-speed manual transmission or sixspeed automatic. One of only two vehicles in the segment to offer a GDI engine, the 2012 Rio boasts a class-leading 138 horsepower while also maintaining a class-leading fuel economy rating of (US) 30/40 m.p.g. (city/ highway). Rio also offers ISG technology, new to the Kia lineup, where the engine turns off when the vehicle is not in motion such as at a stoplight or in traffic. Kia also showed the refreshed Soul for the first time in New York. The Soul will offer the current 2.0-litre engine, but will also add the 1.6-litre GDI power plant. On the outside, the Soul is freshened with subtle changes that its legion of fans will instantly recognize, from new projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights that are slightly bulged,

AUTOMARKET Toyota recalls some Rav4s, Highlanders EXPERIENCE LIFE ACROSS ALL TERRAIN
Toyota is conducting a voluntary safety campaign involving certain 2007 through 2008 model year RAV4 and certain 2008 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid vehicles sold in Canada to replace the airbagsensor assembly. There are approximately 19,000 RAV4 vehicles and approximately 6,000 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid vehicles covered by this safety campaign. In the curtain-shield airbag system of the subject vehicles, there are two sensors in the airbag-sensor assembly designed to detect vehicle-roll angle. If one of these sensors malfunctions, the
airbag-warning light will illuminate and the roll-detection system will be suspended; however, the airbag remains available in the event of a side collision. If both sensors fail nearly simultaneously after the initial airbagsystem check, the seatbelt pretensioner and curtain-shield airbag could be inadvertently activated. Owners of the involved vehicles will receive an interim notification letter advising them of this recall by first class mail in May 2011. Toyota will also post this information on its website. Toyota dealers will replace the airbag-
sensor assembly with a new one at no cost to

February 10, 1922 - April 22, 2011 Ernie was participating in one of his favourite activities when he suddenly left this world of consciousness, and, on Good Friday, he crossed the bar while in Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, BC, and is now dancing with the angels. Ernie will be greatly missed by his daughter and son-in-law, Susan Gaye and Ron Bell; his grandsons and their wives: Michael and Cheryl Bell and Alexander and Shauna Bell; his greatgrandchildren: Richard and Kiira Dupuis and Pyper Amandalee Bell; his great-great-grandson, Derrick Febril; his “favourite niece,” Myrna (Russ) Wright; and many dancing partners and bowling friends. He was predeceased by Myra, his wife of 57 years, in 2005. Dad was born in York Township, Toronto, Ontario, to Scottish immigrants, and was still connected to relatives in Scotland whom he visited during his time in Europe with the Canadian Forces in WWII. He was an avid Boy Scout, and one of his fondest memories was of cycling from Toronto to New York with a group of his Scouting friends to see the 1939 World’s Fair. Dad served in the Signal Corps during the latter years of WWII and participated in the liberation of Walcheren Island, which gave the allies crucial access to the port of Antwerp in the Netherlands; he was also Mentioned in Dispatches for action under fire and was presented with a citation of gratitude from the City of Toronto. Ernie and Myra were married in 1948 in Vancouver, where Dad went to work for the CPR Telecommunications division as an equipment mechanic, installing and maintaining Telex machines throughout southern British Columbia. The family transferred to Kamloops in 1957. Dad and Mom were active in the United Church as youth group and renowned camp leaders, and, as Akela and Bagheera, they fondly remembered and are remembered by half a generation of Cubs, especially their doctor of many years. They earned their Gilwell woggles and also served as District Cubmasters. Dad and Mom were involved in the Toastmaster and Toastmistress Clubs from their inception, holding positions on the executives and winning club, regional, and provincial speech competitions. They encouraged their family to join them in becoming lawn bowlers, which led to several medals and cup prizes, beginning in the early 1970s and continuing to the present day with Dad being very proud of Alex and Ron as they won silver and gold medals in provincial competition, and as Ron placed fourth in nationals. Dad was looking forward to another summer of lawn bowling this year. Dad and Mom played Century Sam and Centennial Sue during the celebrations for British Columbia’s 100th Birthday in 1971, and many an audience was entertained by their comedy skits in the Kamicecades. Dad continued to figure skate up to just a few years ago. Another of Dad’s favourite activities was carpet bowling twice a week at the Northshore Seniors Centre in Cottonwood Manor. But it was dancing that Dad most looked forward to every week, often attending four or five dances a week, and aside from his family, is where he will be missed the most. We extend our thanks to Dr. Alan Burris for his years of caring for Dad’s health, Dr. Mosewich for his sage advice and emergency care, and Nurses Elena, Raylene, Christy, Brandy, et al. for their genuine interaction with and unhurried TLC for Dad. A gettogether in Dad’s memory will be announced at a later date. Donations in Ernie’s name may be made to Royal Inland Hospital Foundation.

Wayne will be greatly missed and forever loved with his compassionate and generous spirit towards those who were blessed to know him.
A Memorial Service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 7th, 2011 at Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops, BC.

May 1, 1929 - April 27, 2011 Adam Reichert A Builder of Fine Homes Adam was born in Parry Saskatchewan May 1, 1929, son of John and Elizabeth Reichert. His parents died when he was 5 years old and he was raised by older sister Katy in Blue Sky, Alberta. Adam set out at the age of 15 armed with hard work and determination. He worked various jobs until he found his niche building homes. Adam and Lee married in 1956, moved around the prairies and lower mainland building homes and having kids. Adam fell in love with the Kamloops area and made it home for his family in 1970. Adam earned a well deserved reputation for making quality homes. He took pride in all aspects of home building, from the footings to the cabinets and ﬁnishing work. He 'retired' to Scotch Creek, BC, which really meant his shop moved. A day of working and ﬁshing followed by a glass of wine on the deck at 4 was how life was lived, except for those darn jet skis. The Shuswap is where he felt comfortable. It was his home; it was part of who he was. Travelling meant being away from the lake, and if it was snowing on the Coq, even more reason to go home. Adam loved yellow labs, children, Dubya, Fox news, Young & Restless, real country music, crusin' in the Grew. He suffered a stroke January 6th and fought the ﬁght until April 27th. Adam was predeceased by 5 sisters and 2 brothers, and survived by his brother Joe & Mary. Also mourning is his family he was so proud of and who meant so much to him. His wife and best friend Lee, daughter Debra & John, grandsons Jared, Joel and Delaney, son Clayton & Cathy, granddaughters Rene and Andrea, son Kelly & Debi, grandchildren Hailey and Spencer, son Randy & Kelley, granddaughter Gabrielle. Service will be held at the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Chase, May7th at 1:00PM, and reception at Creek side Centre. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations to the Arthritis Society (www.arthritis.ca) are appreciated.
The Merry Lark The merry, merry lark was up and singing; and the hare was out and feeding on the lea, And the merry, merry bells below were ringing, When my child’s laugh rang through me. Now the hare is snared and dead beside the snow yard, And the lark beside the dreary winter sea, And my baby in his cradle in the churchyard Waiteth there until the bells bring me.

Roadshow is in Kamloops: 3 More Days! TERRY INKLER Canadian Collectors Roadshow Staff Writer
After very successful shows in Cranbrook and Courtenay, The Roadshow is now in Kamloops. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.
Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery
noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!”
At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that During a show near Toronto, a woman were given to her as a young child by her came in with a jewellery box that she grandfather. She Ànally decided to come had just inherited from her late aunt. “I in to the Roadshow and see what he don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara had given her. She was ecstatic to learn Engles, “so it was an easy decision to she had coins dating back to the late come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare. Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for jewellery she was never going explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at to wear anyway. over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have
she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can Ànally afford to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”. Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Road-
show collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they can always make an offer to buy it.
A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. They were able to locate a collector for that speciÀc toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, they will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!
See you at the roadshow!
