artist had to preserve the image using just a pencil and paper. It was the spring of 2008 and the city and region was still in shock over the murders of three young children in Merritt. Allan Schoenborn,

the man who would admit to killing his three kids, was to make an appearance in a Kamloops courtroom for the first time via video conference. Doherty received a call from a news director at CFJC-TV.

The television station wanted a sketch of the then accused murderer. On the recommendation of his high-school teacher, the station decided to give the Kamloops artist a try in the courtroom. XSee KEY A10

A Kamloops judge and a prominent B.C. criminologist each spoke out this week about the province’s overcrowded jails — and the union representing prison guards hopes the government will finally take action. On Monday, Nov. 21, Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame included in her sentencing decision for Richard Wagamese a two-paragraph “observation” on B.C. jails — essentially saying overcrowding has reduced the effectiveness of the province’s prison system. The following day, Simon Fraser University criminologist Neil Boyd released a scathing report on the province’s correctional system. Dean Purdy, spokesman for the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, which represents provincial correctional officers and commissioned Boyd’s report, said he hopes Victoria will finally take notice. “This is something that points to what we’ve been saying for

the past two years,” he said. In her sentencing decision for Wagamese, Frame did not mince words in describing the current state of provincial jails. “Overcrowding in correctional facilities is a common and undisputed complaint we hear repeatedly in this court,” she said. “An increasing number of cases are emerging of violence between inmates and by inmates against guards. The crisis is also well-documented in the media.” Frame went on to say overcrowding is not only dangerous, but also hampers the effectiveness of the correctional facilities themselves. “I accept that our correctional facilities are significantly overcrowded, resulting in diminished resources and increased violence,” she said. “It is difficult to conceive how, in such an environment, any principle of sentencing apart from separation from society can be achieved.” Boyd’s 106-page report, titled Abnormal Working Conditions, describes conditions in

B.C. jails as “depressing” and “appalling.” Purdy said Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre is far from immune. In fact, he said, KRCC has set a record this year with 17 assaults on correctional officers. “And, there’s still more than a month to go in the year,” he said. KRCC has played host to a number of high-profile incidents in recent months, all of which, according to Purdy, would have been far less likely to have occurred if staffing levels were higher. On Nov. 12, a correctional officer at KRCC was taken to hospital for decontamination after having a container of feces thrown at him by a prisoner. Police continue to investigate that incident. On Oct. 20, a 21-year-old KRCC inmate awaiting trial on fraud charges out of Kelowna had to undergo emergency brain surgery after being stabbed in the face by his cellmate during a game of Scrabble.

Bridging past and present with heritage tag By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s an iconic landmark that has stood as a symbol of the link between two communities for 125 years. Now, the Red Bridge connecting the City of Kamloops to the Mount Paul Industrial Park and the Tk’emlups Indian Band (TIB) reserve is getting some recognition. On Wednesday, Nov. 23, the bridge was honoured with the installation of a Heritage Recognition Plaque at the new landscaped entrance to the bridge along Lorne Street. “I think it’s going to make the bridge a much more touristattractive place,” said Andrew Yarmie, chairman of the Kamloops Heritage Commission.

The plaque is just the start of enhancements for the 75-year-old structure. The heritage commission is teaming up with the Communities in Bloom committee and the TIB for three projects on the wood trestle bridge as part the city’s bicentennial celebration next year. The projects include beautifying entrances to the bridge and improving signage, building two kiosks to make its history available to the public and flooding the structure with solar-powered lighting. Yarmie explained the plan is to build two kiosks, one at the entrance of the bridge along Lorne Street and one below along the Rivers Trail. The commission is in the midst of getting cost estimates on the kiosks, but Yarmie noted

the organization is also looking at grants from the provincial government. He said the solar-lighting enhancement will be more expensive, but the commission is hoping to get sponsors from the community to help fund the project. Work on the entrance improvements has already started. When complete, Yarmie believes the project will make the bridge a major tourist attraction. The original Red Bridge was built in 1887, followed by a second version in 1912. The current bridge was built in 1936 and is one of five crossings over the river in the city. While the Red Bridge basks in the attention, it doesn’t appear a new crossing in Kamloops is in the works any time soon. Though a sixth crossing for the

city has been passively discussed for years, such a span would fall into the mega-project category. David Trawin, the city’s director of development and engineering services, said this past summer the city is looking at transportation models and what kind of future projects might be needed and their possible cost. He noted a possible Singh Street bridge is in the long-term plans, but it could be a couple of decades away. He also suggested the project is estimated at $300 million and the price tag could jump to a half billion by the time it’s needed. It’s a project in which the mayor of Kamloops in this decade doesn’t see a major need. “The fact people have to stop at the odd traffic light and wait, we don’t have it so bad in Kamloops,”

Peter Milobar said. The projected population threshold for another north-south Kamloops crossing is 120,000. The city has about 87,000 residents. Milobar said a new bridge could become more pressing if the city started to see significantly higher density than what is planned for in the Brocklehurst area. Barring a sudden spending splurge by the provincial or federal governments, Milobar believes a Singh Street bridge is long way off. There has also been rumours about a bridge linking the airport to the Pineview Valley area and Highway 1, but Trawin said he couldn’t see that becoming a reality unless a huge industrial development was considering moving into that part of Kamloops.

At city hall, they stand on guard for the CBC — sort of By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

PIt might have been the final debate by outgoing city politicians, but the topic of funding the CBC won’t likely end at council chambers. What was supposed to be a discussion on an application by the CBC to the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunication Commission (CRTC) to operate in Kamloops turned into a debate on public funding for the broadcaster. Tuesday’s (Nov. 22) discussion began following a request by former B.C. attorney general Bud Smith, who asked city council to write a letter to the federal treasury board, requesting Ottawa reallocate $1 billion of the CBC’s budget to water and waste-water infrastructure projects

in Canada. The CBC is given an annual $1.2-billion subsidy by the federal government. In May, the broadcaster announced plans to expand its services in B.C.’s Interior — including a new radio and online bureau in the Tournament Capital. Smith’s request touched off a debate amongst council, which ultimately led to a defeated motion to send that letter to the treasury board. Mayor Peter Milobar and councillors John De Cicco, Tina Lange and Pat Wallace voted in favour, while Nancy Bepple, Jim Harker, Marg Spina and Denis Walsh were opposed. Bepple argued the CBC provides a huge public service, especially in smaller communities, while Walsh called it “odd” council was trying

to manage the federal government. Wallace said the CBC needs to “earn their keep” be selling ads and having a good business plan. “This is a case of an elite group that doesn’t raise money to pay their salaries and the private sector does,” she said of the radio arm of the CBC, which is ad-free. Smith said his request would force the CBC to take a hard look at itself and find ways to operate more efficiently. “There are all kinds of ways that the CBC can reacquaint itself with the fiscal circumstances of our country,” Smith said. Ultimately, council voted 7-1 in favour of writing a letter in support for the CBC’s application to the CRTC. Wallace was the lone councillor to vote against the motion.

Student heads to ultimate lab By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Things are headed south for Justine Wild. But, it’s a good thing. The 14-year-old Grade 9 student at South Kamloops secondary is heading to Antarctica next month for an educational trip — and, this weekend, she’ll be selling handmade crafts in a bid to raise funds for the voyage. Wild is taking part in Students on Ice, an educational group offering student trips to Antarctica and the Arctic. She leaves on Christmas Day for Toronto before heading to the southern-most tip of the Americas via Miami and Buenos Aires. From there, it’s a two-day passage aboard an ice-breaker alongside 60 other students from around the world to the planet’s least-inhabited continent.

Wild said she’s looking forward to the experience and hopes to glean lots from the instructors. “I’m definitely excited,” she said, explaining students will take part in experiments and labs and even meet a colony of chinstrap penguins. “I can’t wait to meet these people from different countries and scientists with different careers. “I’m not really sure where I’m going with my career, so this might help.” It’s still a bit early to be making career plans, Wild said, but she’s pretty sure it will be something to do with the sciences or engineering. It’s in her blood, with a mother and father who both work in geology. “They’re very supportive,” she said. “It’s an expensive trip, but they said it’s totally worth it.”

The Original Piano Tuner Generations of Experience Tuning & Servicing

Expensive it is, with a price tag of $13,000. Wild said she’s hoping to cover a large chunk of that with money raised through events like this weekend’s craft sale at Rayleigh elementary’s craft fair at 9:30 a.m. For sale will be scarves, cards, ornaments and cookbooks — all made by Wild. “I want to do a dinner at a restaurant, too, but we haven’t gotten that far yet,” she said, adding she has also approached businesses across B.C. about potential sponsorship. Anyone looking to help Wild out on her trek can visit the craft fair on Saturday, Nov. 26, or visit her blog, southboundtoantarctica. blogspot.com for information on additional upcoming fundraisers. To donate money, email finance@studentsonice.com and mention you want to support Wild’s trip.

Mayor Milobar has a tough three years ahead of him

I

SURE DON’T ENVY THE task facing Peter Milobar in the next three years. He’s going to have to preside as mayor over a council that has so much potential to go off the rails, he might long for the days when it was just Denis Walsh disagreeing. Add to that the fact he was elected only on the South Shore, with the majority on the other side of the river opting for newcomer Dieter Dudy, and it’s obvious Milobar’s got his work cut out for him. Here are the facts, as of Nov. 22 and pending a final count at city hall: Dudy got 3,793 votes on the North Shore, while Milobar got 3,144. Cross the Overlanders Bridge and the numbers flip-flop, with Dudy getting 4,477 and Milobar 5,070. The incumbent mayor also took the advance and special polls. The folks who voted at Parkcrest elementary really aren’t happy with Milobar, casting just 55 votes for him, while giving Dudy 799. The closest races over there were at the Heffley Creek polling station (48 for Dudy, 45 for Milobar) and the one at Twin Rivers (219 for Dudy, 211 for Milobar.) The mayor has given several reasons why he came within a moment of losing his job, ranging from anger about the parkade to concern about communication from city hall. I hope he takes some time to ponder the much deeper reasons why almost half voting Kamloopsians would have preferred a farmer they’d likely never heard of before over a businessman who has been in the news for many years.

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL Here are some of the reasons friends have given me for not voting for Milobar: • Out of touch with the average person; • He prefers to have approval from big developers rather than the people who shop at his liquor store; • He’s just like every other mayor we’ve had — too comfy with his cushy job and he has forgotten who put him there; • He’s only the mayor for the chamber of commerce. On top of having to overcome his new political reality, Milobar is going to have to deal with a completely new dynamic at the council table. Stalwart Tina Lange is back, bringing a strong business background and an apparent community-wide popularity, given every poll had her in the top eight for council. I love how people are calling Ken Christian a new councillor because, while it’s a new location for meetings and a new agenda, he topped every poll in the city for a good reason — people trust him. Pat Wallace brings the historical continuity the group needs.

I’m hoping Nancy Bepple’s learning curve isn’t as steep for her second term as it was for her first and that Marg Spina’s contribution steps up significantly from her first term. Which brings us to the newcomers, the ones who could test Milobar’s patience and maybe make us long for the days of the Arjun Singh-Terry Lake fights on Tuesday afternoons. I was disappointed with Singh’s campaign; he said little of substance. It was like he felt a big group hug and a round of Kumbaya would bring us all to some consensus. He says he’s learned from his first term on council. Time will tell. I was likewise disappointed with Donovan Caver’s campaign because it was so non-Donovan like. There was the expected bus ride to drum up support, the push for youth getting some attention over baby boomers, but not much else. I’m sure Milobar’s already having nightmares about council meetings where Singh, Cavers and Bepple join forces when the mayor just wants things to move along. Quickly. I don’t know much about Nelly Dever, but she ran an interesting campaign. She lost me when, in answer to a KTW question about the deficit, said she’d like to know how it got so large. It’s big already. How it got there is irrelevant. How are you going to deal with it? Guess we’ll all have to wait and see. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

With participation in elections declining at every level, B.C.’s new chief elections officer wants to extend voter registration to 16-year-olds while they are in high school. We think this is an excellent idea. Young voters can be the most passionate, idealistic force for change we have in our society — but only if they cast ballots. The Salmon Arm municipal election mirrored those across the province, where the voters were far more likely to be sporting grey hair and crow’s feet than the latest Nike sneakers or Lululemon gear. Currently, the lowest level of voter participation is in the 18-to25 age group. By pre-registering teens, and helping them to prepare for voting through high school classes, the demographics could turn around. Many of the city council candidates talk about wanting to help young people and growing families, and yet it is difficult to engage this age group, to find out what exactly they would like to see happen in their city and then have that translate into ballots in the box. Another important component is developing alternate forms of voting, especially online ballots. Young people are living in a wired world, interacting through Facebook and iPhones. One of the best ways to reach them would be a computerized voting system. Indeed this could boost voting across the board, as the convenience factor could encourage larger participation among all ages. While democracy is hardly outdated, it is time to bring voting policies more in line with today’s realities.

For the last few years, as BCLocalNews. com and its family of websites, including Kamloops This Week, have garnered more attention, some readers have raised concerns about one issue in particular — the fact we allow visitors to post anonymous comments. The policy has led to some unpleasant and mean-spirited postings. It’s also raised an inconsistency in our editorial

Several media companies, equally troubled by the vitriolic trend of anonymous comments, are turning to Facebook to power their website commenting. These include the Los Angeles Times, SeattlePI.com and Gannett newspapers. This new approach

won’t be perfect. People without a Facebook account won’t be able to participate in online discussions. Still, we’re enthused to be in the vanguard of this movement. It shows we’re listening to our readers and responding. It places us more deeply into the powerful world of social media: By using Facebook comments, we’re embracing a social medium with 800-million users worldwide.

We all either pay now or we play later Editor: Seems to me there’s a lot of talking going on — with poverty and housing, that is. The latest story in KTW about the tragic death of John Gibbons and the response from ASK Wellness executive director Bob Hughes is the local story. I’m not sure what else can be said to get the government to cough up the money to address the issue of housing. Let’s face it — if you’re only getting $375 per month for housing, (yes this means a room or an apartment, not a mat on the floor of a church), where do you turn? Programs like the ASH, MASH program offered by ASK Wellness are critically important in keeping people in stable housing and need to be recognized. Without them, the homeless count in October would have been much higher. ASK Wellness has taken a huge gamble with these programs. We can find money to help people quit smoking, currently estimated at $3 million, but we can’t find the money to give people the dignity of having a place to call home. How many more people will have to die before the housing rates reflect the current rental rates in B.C.? If a person is given the opportunity to have a stable place, it is the first step in dealing with other issues. Without stability, the addiction continues to cost society not only in dollars, but common sense. Think of the cost associated with health care, homeless shelters, law

COVER PAGE STORY Cam Doherty with a courtroom sketch of mass child killer Allan Schoenborn. The sketch was commissioned by CFJC-TV and was shown nationwide. To check out his work, go online to dohertystudios. com. Read his blog at carldoherty.com. Dave Eagles/KTW

Key is to focus on the sketch XFrom A1

Doherty admits the first few sketches weren’t perfect. It was especially difficult because his subject was on a TV screen. But, they were enough to impress and he would be called time and again to draw images at one of the biggest trials in Kamloops history. “I didn’t know what to expect,” Doherty told KTW from his home, holding those very sketches in his hands. “You see a lot of courtrooms on TV, but it’s quite a process.” He knew some of the testimony would be shocking. Schoenborn, who was found not criminally responsible for his actions, killed his children in unimaginably gruesome ways. Doherty tried to keep it out of his mind, even as he sat just a few steps away from Schoenborn when the trial began. Even when the killer would look right at him, the father of two would stay focused on drawing. “He’s looking at me a lot of the time because he expects I’m going to capture some of what he’s thinking,” Doherty said. “I just try and keep it low key and do the best I can.” Doherty was born and raised in

Barriere and credits his talent with a pencil to his mom, who was also an artist. Her specialty happened to be portraits. But, the 31-year-old didn’t really establish his love for the arts until high school. It was during those teen years he also developed a knack for portraits; however, it was the abstract that became his true passion. Several of Doherty’s pieces hang on the walls of his North Kamloops home. Much of the time, he said, depicting the real world is easier than abstract, because the latter form is so hard to control. There are also challenges to making art in the courtroom environment. When Doherty is in court, he has to meet tight news deadlines — which can be tough for a perfectionist — but most of all, his drawings need to be accurate. At any given time during a sitting, there is usually a judge, several lawyers and sheriffs, witnesses and, of course, the accused. “You want to make sure they look like they’re supposed to,” he said. Not to mention the characters in the unfolding drama don’t tend to stand still. “It’s a tough thing to capture

the moving scene,” he said, noting Schoenborn barely looked up from his seat during the trial. But he did — and Doherty caught it. In fact, his hands chronicled the changing face of Schoenborn through the months-long trial. By the end, the killer looked more like Charles Manson. “It was interesting because I could draw him at different stages,” Doherty said. Doherty went on to get his degree in fine arts from Thompson Rivers University, but decided afterward to try his hand at trades as a painter. He has his own website and he has taken a shining to writing a blog. But, it always comes back to the neat little sketches on Doherty’s pad — and Schoenborn. His only professional work has come from the courtroom. “I just kinda fell into it,” he said of his side career in legal sketching. Though Doherty is more than willing to spend his day sketching some of the worst offenders in society, he’s never upset when the phone goes quiet. “I’m thinking if they don’t call me, then everything’s good. There are no tragedies.”

COVRE PAGE STORY

KRCC ratio now at 40:1 XFrom A1

The victim, Michel Fougere, was stabbed just below his left eye. Doctors say they don’t expect him to regain vision in that eye. Two days earlier, on Oct. 18, a 22-yearold prolific offender escaped custody while taking part in a prison work group filling sand bags outside the prison. He was on the lam for more than a week. Steven Hodgins pleaded guilty to one count of escape lawful custody earlier this week and had three months tacked onto the one-year sentence he

was already serving. In June, a pair of attacks on KRCC officers in a one-week span prompted similar calls from Purdy for increased staffing at the jail. In one incident, a male guard was spit on by an inmate; the other saw a prisoner dump a bucket of urine on a female officer’s head. Among the recommendations in Boyd’s report are calls for the provincial government to reduce inmate-tostaff ratios at B.C. jails and to address so-called “abnormal” working conditions among correctional officers.

According to the report, another 150 correctional officers are needed to make provincial jails safe. Purdy said dangers are ever-present for B.C. correctional officers. “Twenty-six per cent of the inmates here have some form of mental illness, and we’re seeing a higher percentage of gang-affiliated inmates,” he said. “You throw all that together and you get what we’re seeing in our correctional centres.” Purdy said KRCC operates at a 40:1 inmate-to-staff ratio. It

was built for ratios of 18:1. Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond said this week her ministry is close to announcing a new site for a 360-cell facility in the Okanagan, which it has been trying to build for several years. The ministry has $185 million in expansions planned, she said, including another 200 correctional officers. Purdy said it’s time Victoria took action. “We’re hoping they’ll take a serious look at the recommendations in Dr. Boyd’s report.”

Inmates in KRCC’s housing units are locked up between 10 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. When they are not locked up, prison staff keep the inmates on a strict schedule. There are also

segregation and medical cells at KRCC, in addition to those in the housing units. The Sprung structure contains 25 twoprisoner rooms, for a

The Village Hotel is no more Northbridge Hotel jumps into sports-tourism market By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The transients are gone, the fixtures upgraded and the phones even work. The Village Hotel is no more — in its place in the heart of North Kamloops is the Northbridge Hotel. For those who may remember the old Outbacks bar at the rear of the Village, or who have been there for one of the frequent police visits in the past, the change is striking, said its general manager, John Haggarty. While he was reluctant to disclose the price tag — “it’s in six figures, high six figures” — the past few months have been spent changing the carpet, wallpaper and fixtures, installing flatscreen televisions with high-definition cable, free wireless Internet access and a new phone system to replace the one Haggarty said hasn’t worked in years. The lobby has also been updated. Gone are the longterm transient occupants, Haggarty said; the only long-term stays the Northbridge will allow

in its 56 rooms will be for corporate travellers in Kamloops for an extended period. Otherwise, it’s a nightly accommodation situation like one would expect in a hotel. Moving out the previous clientele took some time but, because their nature was to move along, Haggarty said that when a room came empty, it stayed that way while renovations were carried out. The new sign went up on the weekend and the name came about after

several were considered because it ties into the idea of the hotel on the North Shore, across the bridge. The old Outbacks space at the back of the structure remains empty, but there are plans to do something with it at some point, Haggarty said. With much of the Tranquille Road street level devoted to The Duchess — a pub that features exotic dancers — Haggarty said he expects the hotel will appeal to adult sports teams that might use the

nearby McArthur Island fields or the softball diamonds at the Tournament Capital Ranch in Rayleigh. Proximity to the airport and the lack of hotels on the North Shore also will help attract travellers, he said. As for that old Village reputation, Haggarty said the number of calls to police have been down dramatically from previous years. The change has been noticed, according to Peter Mutrie, general manager of the North Shore Business Improvement Association. “It’s quieter on the street. There’s been a tremendous difference in the street traffic,” he said. “In fact, they say on the street the cops are bored over here.” Mutrie suspects the hotel will attract the “oldtimers hockey teams, the beer league, the slo-pitch teams, adult teams like that.” He also is hopeful the change in direction for the hotel will spark renewed work at a development site across Tranquille Road, where for some time there have been plans to build a medical centre.

City group sniffs around a new odour plan Board has tossed them out. Preston is not surprised to see communities like Kamloops trying to tackle the issue of odour, calling it the next frontier in air-quality management. She noted over the

By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s all around us and can hardly be avoided — odour. A bad smell, be it from car exhaust, someone burning wood or a pulp mill, can certainly be a nuisance. Though experts suggest there is no direct scientific link between odour and health impacts on people, it hasn’t stopped the city’s airshed advisory committee from exploring ways of cutting down the stink in the Tournament Capital. Jen Fretz, the city’s sustainability and environmental services manager, explained the committee, which is establishing an airshedmanagement plan, may develop a research project to measure odour in Kamloops. Although the idea is still in the early stages and nothing has been confirmed, the project could see residents log and submit information to the city after a specific odour incident, like where, when and how it smelled. “It’s [odour] an annoyance for a lot of people,” said Fretz. “We are wrestling with how do we define

She said no one is hiding the fact people are impacted by odour on various occasions and more specifically, during certain days or times. Fretz said she’s not sure what can be attributed to the smells, but noted the committee still needs explore the origins of many of the odours. “I don’t think it’s a surprise to anybody that people are concerned about odour,” she said. “We’re aware of it, the question for us is what are we going to do

Kathy Preston is a project director with the engineering firm RWDI, based in Vancouver, and she wrote a report for the provincial government related to odour management in B.C. She explained odour is particularly hard to measure, control and

enforce and regulations would hardly be considered. Instead, airshed plans and permits would probably contain objectives around issues of odour. “It tough to enforce, that’s why it’s not likely to get legislated,” Preston told KTW. She noted Metro Vancouver has tried unsuccessfully to get odour regulations into permits for facilities on the Coast, but B.C.’s Environmental Appeal

Candidates back in court By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Neither of them was elected — in fact, they both finished dead last in their respective races — but a pair of candidates in last weekend’s civic election are sure to hear their names called this morning (Nov. 24) at the Kamloops Law Courts. Brian Alexander and Adrian Miller are each slated to make pre-trial appearances in Kamloops provincial court today. Alexander, who finished fourth among the four candidates seeking the mayor’s chair last weekend, is facing charges of obstructing a peace officer, driving without a licence and failing to produce a licence or insurance, all stemming from a traffic stop near Merritt last month. The 41-year-old, who has previously stated he prefers to go by the name brian-arthur: alexander, was pulled over by police near Quilchena on Oct. 17. The Crown has alleged Alexander failed to produce his licence, instead offering police a copy of the Holy Bible. The incident is

remarkably similar to another traffic stop in Kamloops last November, for which Alexander was also arrested and charged with similar offences. In the past, Alexander has told court he is a freeman — one of a group of people who do not believe the laws of Canada are valid and instead attempt to introduce to the court their own common law. He was released on bail a few days after the Merritt traffic stop. Alexander also ran unsuccessfully for mayor in the 2008 Kamloops civic election. Miller, meanwhile, has a pre-trial hearing scheduled to take place on one count of breach of probation. Like Alexander, Miller — who ran for a spot on SD73’s board of education — also spent some of his campaign time behind bars. He was arrested on Nov. 8, days after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The Crown has said Miller breached his bail by failing to report to his probation officer. Miller told reporters it was because his cellphone was not working. Also while speak-

Microsoft ups malware protection Windows 8 is scheduled for release next year and Microsoft has announced it’s intention to add built in malware protection to the system. Microsoft already offers a free add on called defender, but admits that it has shortcomings. (It created lots of work for me!). Windows 8 will also radically change the user experience with a new “Metro” style interface, but will also allow users to revert to the tried and trusted file menu system. In the meantime, Internet Explorer 9 is garnering much praise for it’s improved security, especially with bad links unwittingly sent from friends, but unfortunately IE9 does not work with XP. 66% of users still use XP, but they are going to find themselves increasingly marginalized over the next few months with more and more applications that cannot be upgraded. If you can upgrade to IE9, it is a good move, otherwise, maybe it is time to finally upgrade! If you need help with any computer issues please call me at the number below and I will schedule a visit to your house or business!

ing to the media, Miller attempted to explain away the initial offence — one count of mischief under $5,000 — which landed him on probation in the first place. He said he participated in a prank in 2007 with fellow members of the University of Northern B.C. basketball team he played on, during which a window was broken. KTW learned Miller never played basketball at UNBC and the offence actually had to do with Miller trashing his Prince George apartment while in the process of being evicted. After those stories

came out, Miller all but disappeared — refusing to return phone calls or emails from reporters and failing to show up for the only all-candidates forum for trustee hopefuls. With 1,667 votes, Miller finished 13th among the baker’s dozen of local candidates seeking spots on the KamloopsThompson school district’s board of education. Miller has yet to enter a plea to his charge, while Alexander had a not-guilty plea entered on his behalf by a judge during a court appearance on Halloween.

Kamloops ďŹ rm helps avalanche centre By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s no question, winter has come early. For those who like to play in the backcountry snow, the white stuff is a welcome sight. But, the fun can turn to tragedy in seconds when an avalanche strikes. Ian Tomm, the Canadian Avalance Centre’s executive director, said now is a good time for winter outdoor enthusiasts to check their equipment, including safety gear, to make sure it’s all working. Last winter, 11 people were killed in avalanches in Canada, a decrease from the 10-year average of 14. Though there was plenty of snow last season, the conditions weren’t that bad when it comes to avalanches. Tomm believes the decrease in deaths is also related to highprofile incidents in years past, which brought plenty of public awareness to the importance of avalanche safety. “These are preventable accidents,� he said. “I think what we’re seeing is the impact of a couple bad winters are being felt.� The issue came to the fore in March 2010, when an avalanche roared down Revelstoke’s Boulder Mountain during a snowmobiling event, killing two. Throughout the season, the CAC updates the avalanche forecast with regular bulletins. The organization’s efforts to collect lifesaving data just got a boost from a pair of companies, including one based in Kamloops. Bombardier Recreational Products and RTR Performance have teamed up to loan a snowmobile to the CAC. Tomm said the vehicle will be

He explained there are areas with high snowmobile traffic in which the organization doesn’t have much data, so the machine will help in the collection of that information. “Partnering with the snowmobiling communities who use those areas, like BRP and other manufacturers, to get our forecasters

out in the field is very important for improving those forecasts,� Tomm said. The CAC is also changing its bulletin system this year. The organization is splitting some of the larger regions into smaller ones, which will provide daily avalanche information for 12 regions, up from seven in the past.

Kettles want you to add to the pot By Dale Bass

In 2010, the Salvation Army’s kettle campaign, augmented by a letter campaign, raised $270,000 to run programs for the city’s needy. This year’s effort has begun and continues to just before Christmas. Want to help? Call 250-554-1611. KTW file photo

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

They’re out there. You may have already heard the bells ringing. The Salvation Army has started its annual Christmas Kettle campaign and, by the time the season ends, 13 local businesses will have provided it with space to conduct its one fundraiser of the year. “This community has always been so good to us,” said Sharleen McTaggart who, with husband Wayne, came to the Kamloops church 2.5 years ago. Last year, the kettle campaign collected $177,000. A letter campaign took that total to about $270,000, McTaggart said. It’s a lot of money, but every cent is needed to run the many programs the Army provides. This year, two were added — a 12-step pro-

gram for women was created and a full-time addictions counsellor was hired. The counsellor also focuses on the women who go to the Poplar Street church, a direction that was identified by its family-services department that was seeing more and more women seeking help. “They needed some special attention,” McTaggart said, “and it seems to be working.” A lot of the money raised goes to the

Army’s food-hamper program, which has seen usage increase 25 per cent in 2010 and another 25 per cent this year. There has been a concerted effort to put fresh produce, dairy products and meats in the hampers, McTaggart said, because the Army approaches it — as it does its meals program — “from the perspective of what I’d like to feed my family.” Meals are provided

three times a week, from a mobile kitchen downtown on Tuesdays and Thursdays and at the church on Wednesdays. The program has been boosted by three volunteers, men who have worked as chefs in the past and are bringing their skills to the menus, McTaggart said. “One of the Salvation Army’s themes is dignity, that we show dignity to our clients,” she said. “So, when we serve meal, we do it as if we’re inviting people to our home. “Of course, you have people who abuse the system, but they can have families at home that rely on them who aren’t abusing the system.” The campaign began on Nov. 18 and continues to just before Christmas. Volunteers are still needed. For more information on helping, call 250-554-1611 and ask for Heather McQueen.

Heritage House users oppose fee hike

from John De Cicco

Hourly city rate set to rise to $8.40 from $5 By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s been a contentious issue for more than a decade for groups who use Heritage House. A decision on what the city intends to do with user-fee rates for the Riverside Park building will be left in the hands of the new council, which will hold its inaugural meeting on Dec. 6. The outgoing council has directed city staff to review the operations of Heritage House and bring a report back to council next month. At issue is city plans to raise the user-fee rate to $8.40 per hour in 2012, from the current hourly rate of $5. However, groups who use the facility, including the Kamloops

chapter of the Old Time Fiddlers’ Association and the Kamloops Duplicate Bridge Club, are opposed to the rate increase and point to an agreement struck with the city in the late 1990s. The groups contend since they contributed $112,000 to expand Heritage House, they should be protected from an increase in fees. In 2006, council adopted a fees-andcharges bylaw to create a consistent approach to fees for all city facilities based on hours used and daily operating costs. In 2008, council of the day opted to freeze rates at Heritage House. Byron McCorkell, the city’s director of parks, recreation and cultural services, said council has asked staff to use a fee schedule that covers 50 per cent

of the costs of operation. He said it will be up to the new council to decide whether it wants to freeze rates again or come up with a new fee scheme for Heritage House. “Council has asked, basically, for me to go back to 1997 and bring it all forward again to

THANK YOU

educate the new council members and give a full discussion on where we are,� he said. McCorkell noted Heritage House generates $15,000 in revenue, but costs $50,000 annually to operate, noting the $8.40 hourly rate would cover 50 per cent of the operating budget.

Proposed Sandman has time to awaken By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The plan to build a Sandman Hotel in Aberdeen has been given a few extra months to get out of its slumber. Council has agreed to put off a recommendation to rescind the zoning around the property in the Versatile area until April 2012, after Northlands Properties, a group headed by business mogul Tom Gaglardi, submitted a portion of a mandatory traffic study to the city. The city will work with the report in the coming months before handing the data back to the developer to complete the study.

That’s expected to take place by March. In October, the city’s development and engineering services had recommended council rescind the development’s zoning since three years had passed without any movement, but the developer was given an extra month to submit the traffic report. Once the traffic study and any necessary changes are complete, said David Trawin, the city’s director of development and engineering services, the company has indicated it intends to proceed with plans to build the hotel. The original application, which was first approved by council in the fall of 2008, was for

A potentially weak Crown case means one of two men facing serious charges in relation to a shooting in downtown Kamloops earlier this month can’t be kept in custody, a judge has ruled. Trevor Taylor was granted bail in Kamloops provincial court on Wednesday, Nov. 23. The 26-year-old was arrested alongside Brandon Schell, 27, at the Victoria Street McDonald’s on Nov. 7. Two days earlier, Schell is alleged to have shot 51-year-old Arthur Burley in the shoulder in a downtown apartment — an attack police believe is linked to the drug trade. The Crown said Taylor was present during the shooting. Schell is facing one count of attempted murder and remains in custody. Taylor was charged with uttering threats and obstruction of justice. It is alleged he threatened three witnesses to the shooting hours after it took place. The Crown alleges Taylor said: “Remember what happened last night? You say anything [to police], the same could happen to you.� However, Kamloops provincial court Judge Chris Cleavely

acknowledged there’s not a lot of evidence linking Taylor to the threats. The witnesses told police the threats came from a man named “Tre.� Cleavely said the only real link is the fact that nickname could conceivably be short for Trevor, and that Taylor was arrested alongside Schell. Court heard the witnesses were shown photo line-ups by police — and none identified Taylor as the man who was with Schell when the shooting took place. “It would appear clear the Crown faces serious challenges in establishing Mr. Taylor’s involvement,� Cleavely said. At about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5, Burley was shot in an apartment in the 400-block of Seymour Street. There has been no update on the 51-yearold’s condition, but police have said they expect him to make a full recovery. Taylor was released bail with a $2,000 deposit. He’ll be bound by conditions requiring him to report to a bail supervisor and obey a strict 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew. He’s also been ordered to have no contact with Schell, Burley or any of the three witnesses. Taylor and Schell are both slated to return to court today (Nov. 24) for arraignment.

Still no takers for Tobiano resort By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s been nearly five months since Tobiano resort went into receivership, but there are still no takers for the financially struggling development. The resort was put on the market in September, with a deadline for offers by the end of that month, but there were no significant bids. Douglas Chivers, a representative with the Bowra Group, which was appointed receiver of Tobiano by the court, said despite the lack of interest, the resort will continue to run business as usual. “We intend to continue to develop the resort and sell off the lots and the other properties and see what interest can be generated,” he said, adding the award-winning golf course will be open next season. Chivers said it isn’t a surprise interest in the resort has been minimal given the current real-estate market, noting several other troubled developments in Interior have also received little attention from buyers. Word of the resort’s financial woes

broke in June, after the real-estate side of the resort and golf course was ordered into receivership by a B.C. Supreme Court. Pagebrook Inc. and Kamlands Holdings Ltd., companies owned by developer Mike Grenier, owe the Bank of Montreal debts totalling roughly $26 million. In August, a representative with the Jim Pattison Group, which owns a 13-acre parcel of land within Tobiano, where it hopes to one day build townhomes, told KTW it’s unlikely such a project will get started any time soon. Since the summer, the receiver has managed to sell five lots at Tobiano and continues work on trying to get some form of a marina in place. The financial downfall of the resort was in part blamed on the inability by the developer to secure funding to build a marina. Chivers said the Bowra Group has no intention to stop marketing Tobiano, but said getting some type of building activity at the resort is key to a sale. “The more activity up there, the more people come to it, the more attractive it is,” he said.

Telus, On-Call court dispute continues By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The appeal of the former head of a small Kamloops Internet service provider in an ongoing legal dispute with a Canadian telecommunications giant won’t be dismissed just yet, according to a judge in B.C.’s highest court. In a decision released on Friday, Nov. 18, B.C. Court of Appeal Justice Christopher Hinkson gave the former head of On Call Internet Service (OCIS) an extension to file a motion in a dispute with Telus. In 2010, Telus assumed control of OCIS after the Kamloops-based company lost a series of legal battles stemming from an initial dispute over billing errors in 2003, when OCIS was contracting services from Telus. OCIS claimed Telus was overcharging its wholesale Internet clients. Since the late 1990s, the two providers regularly had disputes over ADSL tariffs. In 2009, an arbitrator ruled OCIS owed Telus nearly $930,000. Since then, Cindy Quigley, the former head of OCIS, has been appealing that

order and fighting for additional damages from Telus. The decision released on Nov. 18 dealt with Quigley’s attempt to bring her appeal — which had been labelled “inactive” — back before the courts. Justice Hinkson agreed to allow Quigley to file her motion, but on the condition it is put forward before the end of next week. Telus had been attempting to have Quigley’s appeal dismissed. But, Hinkson ruled, that won’t happen yet. “I do not propose to comment upon Telus’ application for the dismissal of the entire appeal,” he said in the written decision. Hinkson said he will allow Telus to bring the motion for dismissal back before the court “if Ms. Quigley does not proceed with her applications expeditiously.” Quigley, who has argued she is entitled to pursue her legal action against Telus because she is an OCIS creditor, was also awarded her costs. In previous hearings, Quigley has claimed OCIS is owed more than $1 million by Telus.

WHERE GOLF IS ALWAYS IN SEASON

B.C. wants teens signed up to vote

MENS NIGHT EVERY WED. LADIES NIGHT EVERY TUES. SENIORS MORNING EVERY TUES COUPLES NIGHT EVERY FRI. GREAT FOOD & LICENSED

the importance of voting in a democracy.â&#x20AC;? Attorney General Shirley Bond said she supports the idea in principle, especially after last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s municipal elections, where fewer than one in three eligible voters cast their ballots in many communities, including Kamloops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We simply have to look at the elections that took place on the weekend,â&#x20AC;? Bond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to make sure we look at how we get our participation numbers up, and what better place to start than young people.â&#x20AC;? Archer is also recommending the government explore options for electronic voting, which is being studied by Ontario and Elections Canada. Municipal leaders endorsed online voting by a two-to-one margin at their annual convention in September. Archer said B.C. election law does not allow for anything other than paper-based voting at the provincial level. Bond said online voting was a commitment of Premier Christy Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership campaign and she intends to appoint an expert panel shortly to make recommendations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to make sure that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe and secure, and people have been worried about that,â&#x20AC;? Bond said.

By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

With participation in elections declining at every level, B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new chief electoral officer wants to extend voter registration to 16-year-olds while they are in high school. Keith Archer released a report on Monday, Nov. 21, suggesting the government consider that move to get more young people registered and ready to vote when they turn 18. Currently, the lowest level of participation is in the 18- to 25-age group â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as the lowest number of registered voters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our sense is that, by introducing a provisional-voter register, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to communicate with young voters earlier on and probably to do so as part of their high school social studies curriculum,â&#x20AC;? Archer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And, partnering with with social-studies curriculum developers provides us with a real opportunity to enhance civics education within that group and to address generally Kamloops-North Thompson Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger may find himself having to decide on the future of paper ballots as the province may consider a move to online voting.

BC NEWS School District No. 73 KAMLOOPS/THOMPSON

Minimum wage still too low: B.C. Fed By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

The B.C. Federation of Labour campaigned for four years for a $10-anhour minimum wage and that will be delivered May 1, when the province’s wage goes to $10.25. But, federation president Jim Sinclair has told the government it’s no longer enough. He wants another increase next fall to $11.25 an hour. That rate is what is needed to keep up with Statistics Canada’s “lowincome cutoff” (LICO), Sinclair told reporters. Critics often use LICO as a measure of poverty, although the federal agency says it is not, since it is a relative measure that grows along with inflation and economic growth. “Today, the minimum wage is $9.50. That’s the secondlowest in Canada, still,” Sinclair said. “Today, if we were at the LICO level, it would be at $11.25 an hour.” Premier Christy Clark announced in March the minimum wage would be raised for the first time in a decade. The $6 an hour training wage was also abolished. The minimum wage went from $8 to $8.75 on May 1 and jumped another 75 cents on Nov. 1. A third 75-cent increase takes effect next May 1. After the increase to $11.25, Sinclair said government should meet with business and labour to decide how the minimum wage should keep up with the cost of living. B.C. Labour Minister Margaret MacDiarmid met with Sinclair to discuss the issue. “Our promise is, starting in 2012, to look at our policy,”

MacDiarmid said afterward. She would make no commitment beyond next May, adding government policy should aim to make B.C. “a great place to work, and a great place to be an employer.” Sinclair also blasted what he called Clark’s “dumbest idea,” a lower wage for employees who primarily serve alcohol. That went to $8.50 an hour May 1, $8.75 on Nov. 1 and is set to go to $9 an hour in May 2012. Clark said that measure is similar to the minimum wage system in Ontario and reflects higher tips earned by pub, lounge and cabaret workers. “There’s no rationale for this form of discrimination,” Sinclair said. “It doesn’t apply to anybody else who works in industries where they get tips.”

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

Jim Sinclair, president of the B.C. Federation of Labour, says excluding employees who serve alcohol from the province’s minimum wage increase is wrong. Sinclair has also told the provincial Liberal government his organization believes the wage should increase to $11.25 by next fall.

Holy Family! Church celebrates 30 years By Jessica Wallace SPECIAL TO KTW

editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Looking at it, you may not even know it’s a church. The non-intimidating nature of the building is part of the message Holy Family Parish, a Catholic church in Valleyview, has been relaying for the past 30 years. “It has a very welcoming atmosphere,” said Therese Brooks, who has attended and contributed to the parish for the past 25 years. “It’s different.” Walking into the large lobby, people have the opportunity to socialize and feel part of the community. “In a lot of churches, you walk right

into the church so you don’t get that time to really talk to people,” Brooks said. “You go to a cathedral somewhere, you sit there and nobody talks to you.” “With the way that our church was built, you can talk to people and you can visit.” Holy Family Parish opened in 1981. “Originally, we just had the foyer [the socializing area]. That was our church,” Brooks said. “It was formed because there were too many people at the cathedral [Sacred Heart Cathedral].” In 1994, the building was expanded to accommodate the growing number of people attending mass.

“Families grew, people heard families were welcome and that kids were welcome,” Brooks said. “They felt it was a younger parish with more young families.” Brooks said anyone can attend the 30thanniversary celebration on Sunday, Nov. 27, and all will be made welcome. “Some people have been there for a long time and they approach you,” she said. The parish is located at 2797 Sunset Dr. There will be a slideshow of the history of the parish, an open-mic period, entertainment by the choir and a potluck following 10:30 a.m. mass.

ENTERTAINMENT

CONCERT REVIEW

Lightfoot a lyrical Lazarus By Christopher Foulds KTW EDITOR

editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Yes, Gordon Lightfoot could have sauntered onto the stage at Interior Savings Centre on Tuesday night (Nov. 22), told a funny tale and lip-synched to his legendary hits by miming his strong, spectacular voice of 30 years ago. He didn’t. That kind of singing scam is best left to the Ashley Simpsons, Britney Spears and Madonnas of entertainment, acts whose lyrics and careers are compelling Archie comics next to Lightfoot’s Tolstoy tenure. The icon turned 73 one week ago today and, during Tuesday night’s concert at ISC before a disappointingly small crowd, his voice often sounded every bit as old as the mouth through which landmark songs were sung. However, that’s exactly as it should be. Lightfoot has lived a tough, tough life for more than seven decades and vocal-chord strain on hits like Rainy Day People and Sundown only added to the raw reality of finally seeing Canada’s greatest songwriter of all time performing in Kamloops. Remember, Lightfoot is the lyrical Lazarus of Canadiana, coming back from the dead in February 2010 to tour again (or so the major media told us as they jumped on a hoax Twitter post lamenting the great man’s demise). He was hit with an abdominal aneurysm in 2001 and lapsed into a six-week coma. He suffered a stoke onstage in

Seventy-three-year-old Gordon Lightfoot made first-ever appearance in Kamloops on Tuesday, Nov. 22, playing to a small but fiercely devoted audience of about 1,500 at Interior Savings Centre. Dale Bass/KTW

2006 was performing again in nine days. Heck, hearing Lightfoot rasp his way through Summer Side of Life while confined to an iron lung and being read last rites would be eminently preferable to being subjected to the inanity of LMFAO, Radiohead, Kanye West and the rest of what passes for music these days. Lightfoot and his oh-so-tight band — Carter Lancaster on lead guitar (replacing longtime Lightfoot mate Terry Clements, who died in February), Mike Heffernan on keyboards, Barry Keane on drums and Rick Haynes on bass — led an adoring crowd through the Lightfoot

years. From Carefree Highway to Let it Ride to Early Morning Rain to Baby Step Back — Lightfoot may not have been as strong in his delivery, but the Kamloops crowd was mesmerized for the entire 90-minute show. Following a 20-minute intermission, Lightfoot hit his stride, his voice seeming to take command as he opened the second half with The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald (sung 12 days after the 36th anniversary of the sinking of the now-famous Great Lakes freighter, with Lightfoot reminded the crowd the song is “a true story from start to finish.”) His voice continued

to build through Clouds of Loneliness (a heartshattering song Lightfoot noted was written for his “second ex-old lady”) and If You Could Read My Mind. It was Lightfoot’s first performance in Kamloops, though he twice reminded the audience he had been in the Tournament Capital once before — when he spent about 30 minutes at the airport en route to one of four Stein Valley Festival benefit concerts in the early 1990s. And, twice Lightfoot thanked the audience for “coming out on a Tuesday night.” “Thanks for coming!” one fan volleyed back, to which Lightfoot smiled, bowed his head in his inimitable humble way and sang another timeless song that can only make you smile and sigh. ENCORE — Bill Jaswal of Jelly Events and Promotions brought Lightfoot to town and, judging by the crowd, it might have been a tough night for the promoter. The floor was full, but not very many of the bleacher seats in the half-bowl setup were occupied. But, that’s all the more credit to Jaswal. Booking Lightfoot transcends marketing and profit. Booking Lightfoot is important as he is, essentially, history on tour. As with small but devoted crowds showing up at ISC for fellow legends George Jones and Randy Travis in past concerts, such bookings add to the foundation of seminal concerts in Kamloops. Here’s hoping these momentous acts keep coming through the Thompson Valley.

IKE THOSE GENERALS who used to discover nuclear weapons were not a good thing about 20 minutes after they took off their uniforms and started collecting their pensions, we have had a parade of former presidents who knew the war on drugs was a bad thing — but only mentioned it after they were already ex-presidents. Now, at last, we have one who is saying it out loud while he is still in office. President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia, the country that has suffered even more than Mexico from the drug wars, is an honest and serious man. He is also brave because any political leader who advocates the legalization of narcotic drugs will become a prime target of the prohibition industry. He has chosen to do it anyway. “We are basically still thinking within the same framework as we have done for the past 40 years,” he told The Observer in a recent interview in Bogota. “A new approach should try and take away the violent profit that comes with drug trafficking . . . If that means legalizing [drugs]. . . then I will welcome it.” Santos has no intention of becoming a kamikaze politician: “What I won’t do is become the vanguard of that movement [to legalise drugs] because then I will be crucified. “But, I would gladly participate in those discussions, because we are the country that’s still suffering most . . . from the high consumption in the U.S., the UK

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH and Europe in general.” There are no such discussions, of course. Santos is being disingenuous about this; he is really trying to start a serious international debate on drug legalization, not to join one. But, the time may be ripe for such a debate, because it is now almost universally acknowledged (outside of political circles) that the “war on drugs” has been an extremely bloody failure. Twenty years ago Milton Friedman, a Nobel Prize winner, the most influential economist of the 20th century, and an icon of the right, said: “If you look at the drug war from a purely economic point of view, the role of the government is to protect the drug cartel.” It is only because the government makes the drugs illegal that the criminal cartel has a highly profitable monopoly on meeting the demand. Friedman also said: “Government never has any right to interfere with an individual for that individual’s own good. The case for prohibiting drugs is exactly as strong and as weak as the case for prohibiting people from overeating. We all know that over-eating causes more deaths than drugs do.” But, there are a quarter-million Americans in jail for possessing or

Is there broken-heart syndrome?

R

ECENTLY, SOMEONE ASKED IF IT WAS TRUE THAT SOMETHING CALLED BROKEN-HEART SYNDROME EXISTS. It does and it is clear women are more likely to have it. First, we better tell you exactly what the syndrome is because it may not be what you think. Broken-heart syndrome occurs when someone is hit suddenly with dramatic news or an event, even a good one like winning the lottery. What happens is it triggers a rush of stress hormones — especially adrenaline — that cause the main pumping chamber of the heart to enlarge. This, in turn, causes the heart to suddenly stop working correctly. In the hospital, diagnostic tests ordered by doctors show major changes in heart rhythm and blood samples show substances that would usually be there after a heart attack. What makes it different from a heart attack is there are no artery blockages that typically cause a myocardial infarction. Also, heart attacks happen more in winter whereas broken-heart syndrome is more common in summer. By far, the majority of people who have an episode of the syndrome manage to recover in a few weeks, but once in a while, it’s fatal — in about one per cent of the cases. Women are seven to nine times more likely to have an episode of broken-heart syndrome and this usually occurs after she has suffered either

prolonged or sudden stress, such as what happens in a sudden death of a family member Medical science is still not 100 per cent sure why this happens to women far more than men, who make up about 10 per cent of victims and women over 55 were three times more likely to have an episode than younger women. About 10 per cent of people who have had one attack will have a second episode sometime in their lives. Research out of the Mayo Clinic indicated no one really knows why it affects more women than men. It is the only heart condition where there is such a huge difference between men and women, but the main theories involve the fact that men have more adrenaline receptors in their hearts so may be able to handle the sudden release of large batches of these hormones better than women. There may also be factors related to female hormones not found as much in men. The less scientific theory explaining the differences between men and women in broken-heart syndrome is the one expounded by many women: One must first have a heart in order for it to break, hence women suffer this syndrome proportionately more than men. We will not take sides on this debate, as we set out to answer a reader’s question — like we

LARRY WAYNE LUNDSTROM

MARY ELUNED ECCLESTON

June 15, 1943 – November 18, 2011

December 9, 1912 – November 20, 2011

With extremely heavy hearts and pain in our hearts, we announce that my precious husband Larry, Father and Pappa has passed away.

Mary passed away peacefully on Nov. 20, 2011 in Kamloops, BC just short of her 99th birthday. She is survived by her two sons, Bill of Victoria and Tom (Paulette) of Kamloops; 10 grandchildren (Geoffrey, Mairilee, Sheryl, Dan, Virginia, Tom, Wesley, Joel, Elizabeth and Anita) and 10 great grandchildren (Nadine, Sheridan, Cooper, Sarah, Nicholas, Olivia, Charlie, Aidan, Jane Mary, and Dillan). She is also survived by two sisters, Jean Simonson of Edmonton and Betty Evans of Calgary. She will be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews, as well as her singing and hiking buddies. Mary was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Tom, in 1986.

Larry will be lovingly remembered by his family, loving wife Barbara, daughter Lisa, son Quinn, daughter Jennifer, son Jonathan, son Steven and son Matthew and Matthew’s mother Angela Ward, brother in-law Ron Senkiw, sister in-law Debbie Senkiw and many cousins and great aunts in North Western Ontario. He also had many dear friends. Larry was born on June 15, 1943 in Fort Frances, Ontario to parents Clara and Axel Lundstrom. Larry was raised on a farm in Straton. In 1971 Larry met his love Barbara at a wedding. In 1973 they were married, 38 years later they were still going strong! Larry loved hockey having played it as a youth. He loved going to the Blazers games, watching hockey on television and reading about hockey. It really was his passion. Larry and his dad Axel were avid hunters, many a deer they would bring home. Fishing was also a wonderful pastime for him, leaving at 5:00 a.m., returning hours later with the catch of the day! Larry loved his family and cared for them all. He spent as much time as possible with them. He would love to hear the boys saying “Hi Pappa!” and to hear his kids say “Hi Dad!” He really was an excellent husband, father and pappa to his family. Larry was a life long member of the United Steel Workers Union of America. He operated anything from dozers, graders, packers and large trucks. Larry spent most of his life in open pit mining in Ignace, Ontario and Akitokan, Ontario, as well as working at Highland Valley Copper, formerly known as Lornex. He took pride in his job and pride in the machines that he operated right up until he retired 10 years ago. Larry, how we will miss your goofy jokes, your smile and you just being you. We all love you very much. Love, your Family. A Celebration of Larry’s life will be held on Friday, November 25, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel. In lieu of flowers donations would be gratefully accepted at HSBC Educational Trust Fund Account #5349865 for Matthew Lundstrom. Thank you to everyone, for everything. The Lundstrom Family

Mary was born in Coleman, Alberta and grew up in the 'Coal Branch' area of Luscar Alberta. In 1945 she moved to Edmonton where she and her husband operated a corner store. In 1973 Mary and Tom moved to Kamloops to be close to their family. Mary was a very active lady who particularly enjoyed gardening, singing, and outdoor activities. She participated in several community fitness groups and choirs. The family wishes to express special thanks to the exceptionally supportive and caring staff of the Overlander Extended Care Hospital for their attention to Mary in the last 4 years, and in particular ensuring her comfort in her final days. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Make-AWish Foundation of BC and Yukon, #112-2025 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6J 1Z6 Funeral service will take place on Saturday November 26 at 2pm, Full Gospel Tabernacle, 1550 Tranquille Road, Kamloops.

Getting a Reid on Grey Cup Week By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

F

ORGET ALL the hype and focus on football. That’s the advice Grey Cup champion Stefen Reid, a Kamloops product, has for the gridiron warriors taking the field at the 99th edition of the big game between the B.C. Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sunday, Nov. 27, at BC Place Stadium. “There are a lot of distractions,” said the former Alouettes linebacker, who played in two Grey Cups, winning one with Montreal in 2002 when the Larks defeated the hometown Edmonton Eskimos 25-16 while 5.2-million people watched on TV. “You want to absorb the whole event, but that can be a distraction — and the team that minimizes the distractions is the team that wins the game.” The Westsyde secondary graduate said he was guilty of getting caught up in the Grey Cup-week festivities when Montreal lost 28-26 to the B.C. Lions at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium in 2000. Two years later, he was better prepared to handle the media blitz, social appearances and team functions.

BY THE

NUMBERS 55: Points scored by Winnipeg as it won both games against B.C. this season.

Kamloops’ Stefen Reid has a shiny memento from his part in helping the Montreal Alouettes win the 2002 Grey Cup in Edmonton with a 25-16 victory over the hometown Eskimos. Two years earlier, Reid and his Alouettes lost to the B.C. Lions in the big game. On Sunday, Nov. 27, in Vancouver, Reid said, the team that best minimizes the off-field distractions will win the championship. B.C. and Winnipeg will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on TSN. Dave Eagles/KTW

Reid gave credit to then-Montreal head coach Don Matthews, who was able to minimize the potential pitfalls for his team. “Don was a wizard,” Reid said. “He would create controversies about himself so the media would be focused on him and not his players. That was his genius.” It’s not uncommon for players to go out for drinks on the Tuesday

or Wednesday of Grey Cup week, Reid said. He did in 2000, but opted not to do the same two years later. “When we lost in Calgary to B.C., we were very caught up in the excitement of the week,” Reid said. “You’re not partying, at least we didn’t, but you go out and take in some of the events.” Reid, former head coach and defensive co-ordinator with the

Kamloops Broncos, said every player on the B.C. and Winnipeg rosters will become increasingly jittery as the game approaches. “You’re nervous until the whistle blows on the first play, then the nerves subside and you’re just playing football,” he said. “Some guys play better in big games than other guys do because they do a better job of dealing with the ner-

vous energy. “[Current Alouette pivot Anthony] Calvillo is a great example. “He was the best pure passer the game has ever seen, but his Grey Cup record up until two years ago was dismal,” Reid said. “He’s since overcame a lot of the negative stigma of him in a big game.” Reid’s biggest piece of advice to a player heading into his first

Grey Cup: “It’s kind of like the old Hoosiers movie — you’ve got to realize it’s just a football game.” And, oh yeah, enjoy the moment, as it might never happen again. “The second time around, it was about the game,” Reid said. “Not just being focused on the game, though, but spending time with your family and enjoying being there.”

43: Total points scored in only Grey Cup between the two teams, a 22-21 Winnipeg win in 1988. 41: Age of B.C. kicker Paul McCallum, the CFL’s oldest player. 17: Years since the host team has won the Grey Cup, when B.C. defeated Baltimore in 1994. 15: Combined Grey Cup championships between B.C. (5) and Winnipeg (10) entering this weekend.

Kamloops FireFit squad best in world In addition to being the Canadian team champion and the Canadian relay champions, the FireFit Challenge Team KFR/New Gold is now also a world champion. Competing in Myrtle Beach, S.C. this past week, the team of Graham MacKenzie, Mike Brown, Shawn Davidson, Scott Leslie, Mark Brise and Don Clarke was crowned world champion with a

time of 4.37.90. Mackenzie finished second in the world for the individual event, adding to his first-place Canadian individual placing and a Canadian world record. The challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession’s rigours to the public. Wearing full bunker gear and the

SCOTT Air-Pak breathing apparatus, pairs of competitors race headto-head as they simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of five tasks, including climbing the five-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a lifesized, 175-pound “victim” as they race against themselves, their opponent and the clock.

As a team of one, the points Branchflower accumulated had NorKam tied for 28th in the team standings in the 65-team tourney.

CON COURSE LEVEL OF BLAZERS & STORM GAMES

Understand the rules of green lights to stay safe By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC Traffic lights are used to organize the flow of traffic on our roads. Throughout the years, we have been taught that a red light means “stop,” a yellow light means use “caution” and a green light means “go.” However there can be so much more meaning to each of these “colours.” Green lights, for example, are often misused and many drivers don’t take the extra time they should at intersections. Typically, when we see a green light, we think “GO!” But, we really should be thinking, “Is this light going to change before I am through the intersection?” There are two types of a solid green light. A fresh green light is a green light that has just turned green.

It is not likely to turn yellow soon. As you are approaching a fresh green light, scan – Left, Centre and then Right – before you enter the intersection. You may enter the intersection on a green light: 1. If it is safe for you to do so 2. If the intersection is clear The second type of green light would be a stale light – one that has been green for a long time, and is about to turn yellow. Chances are, if you didn’t see the light turn green – it’s STALE. Stale green lights can cause problems when drivers are not prepared. Many drivers don’t know how to recognize a stale green light and are so not prepared for the light to turn yellow. When it does, the worst situation happens: Hesitation! As drivers approach a stale green light, they need to watch their speed, road conditions and the traffic

behind you. Ask, “If this light turns yellow, can I stop?” Do this until at the POINT OF NO RETURN. This is the point at the intersection where you can no longer stop safely in time. If the light turns yellow and you have passed the point of no return, you would remain at your speed – scanning left, centre and right – and if it’s safe, travel through the intersection. Never accelerate to “get through the intersection faster” – just keep doing the speed limit. Enforcement is being stepped up at intersections throughout British Columbia. Especially in the Victoria area where there are five of the most dangerous intersections listed. Intersections can be the most dangerous place for a driver so take the time to learn what you can do to stay safe.

Living life on the real wild side By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

All his mother wanted to do was talk Jeff McKay out of buying a crocodile. But, the then-13year-old was determined. So, his mom made arrangements for him to have a tour of a museum of natural sciences in his hometown of Ottawa, asking the man giving the tour to help her talk her son out of the purchase. Things didn’t work out the way mom wanted, McKay said. Instead, the tour guide was impressed with the young teen’s knowledge of the reptile world and asked McKay if he’d like to volunteer there. “I did end up buying the crocodile,” he said — and, two years later, put on his first reptile show at the neighbourhood library, charging $20 for the two-hour presentation. He was 15 years old then and his career path, in his mind, was set. McKay started touring Ontario libraries presenting his show and, 25 years later, he’s

now Safari Jeff and he travels the country with his collection of reptiles, introducing other eager young minds to the world that fascinated him, too, at an early age. His show, combined with a second, static one he operates, is now on at Sahali Mall, where kids can hold a tortoise, touch a snake and learn all about reptiles. They can colour pictures of reptiles, look at books — including some that have 3D effects — about them and sit on bales of hay to ask McKay questions. He’s doing it for several reasons, not the least of which it’s the first time he’s brought both sides of his program together. McKay’s also done it not so much as a challenge to the city’s bylaws about exotic animals as to show city hall that there are two sides to the argument about pets with shells and scales. He said he’s had several visits from and conversations with local bylaw officers and has been happy with how they’ve

Max Ritchie (right) is one of the many children who have gone to learn more about the world of reptiles and other animals, taking a moment to look through the lens of a microscope. Dave Eagles/KTW

worked with him to ensure the show can go on. Those bylaws are specific, McKay said, and he’s had to make some reptile changes to meet them. For example, it’s OK to have a Cuban iguano in Kamloops but not a green one. X See SHOWS B4

Shows designed for lots of fun learning X From B1

“I just wanted to present the animals so they would see they’re not always a circus act,” McKay said. The local SPCA branch has also been involved and helpful, McKay said. Finally, the Kamloops presentation is being done for a very personal reason, inspired by McKay’s son, Charlie. It’s to help raise money for the Thompson-Nicola Family Resource Society’s autism program, something the McKays are familiar with as Charlie benefits from its resources. McKay credits Shannon for realizing Charlie wasn’t developing the way most children should. She took her son at 18 months of age to have his hearing tested because of those concerns and, many tests

Elisa Wilkes helps with the Safari Jeff shows.

and evaluations later, the McKays learned their boy has autism. While Shannon used to go on the tours with McKay, she’s now a stay-at-home mom for Charlie and his younger sister, Ruby, and McKay is changing his Safari Jeff business to try to be home more often, as well. Home is in Thompson Rivers Estate, near Savona, and that’s the other reason McKay tried out his program in Kamloops. He’s debating the possibility of creating something more permanent in the River City.

“It can be done and it can be a fabulous thing for a community,” McKay said. McKay’s also looking at sending the static tour — which is really anything but, with plenty of elements to keep kids entertained as they learn — across the country more often. It’s overseen by Elisa Wilke of Saskatoon. It’s designed to allow for a fun but quiet place for kids to relax, with large puzzles, crayons and colouring sheets and other creative elements that can be done quietly. There are even rep-

tile-shaped large pillows for those who just need a timeout. There’s a place to dig for dinosaur bones, areas to touch live animals, interactive displays, as well. McKay will be at the mall today from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., tomorrow (Nov. 25) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the weekend from noon to 5 p.m. On Dec. 2, hours change to 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, closed Thursdays and open Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The show closes Jan. 1. Admission is $5 per person with those three years of age and younger admitted for free.

Voice for the Horse The non-profit group Voice for the Horse is holding a writing competition for children in Canada and the U.S. on wild horses. The topic was inspired by a B.C. wild stallion, Atticus, that was captured this year in Deadman Valley and put into the care of CritterAid and Project Equus. Information on the competition and how to enter is online at voiceforthehorse.com. The grand prize is a trip for two to the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros sanctuary in South Dakota. Voice for the Horse was involved in rescuing horses in 2009 during a series of fires in Pritchard. Photos from that rescue are also on its website.

Mayor’s Gala for the Arts Nominations are being accepted for the annual award, to be presented in January. This year, the category being recognized is artistic innovation. Deadline for nominations is Friday, Dec. 9. Applications are available on the websites for the Kamloops Art Gallery, Western Canada Theatre and the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, which will each benefit from the fundraiser, and at the website for the city.

Inspired by the sciences of genes:

Members of The Rising Stars School Choir rehearse for the upcoming Prelude To Christmas concert with the Thompson Valley Community Orchestra. It will be at Calvary Community Church, 1205 Rogers Way, on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 4 at 2 p.m.

100 little stars ready to shine The stage will be crowded at Calvary Community Church when the Thompson Valley Community Orchestra (TVCO) kicks off its new season. Joining the TVCO for its annual Christmas concert, this year called Prelude to Christmas, will be The Rising Stars School Choir and the St. Ann’s Senior Choir. Both feature students from St. Ann’s Academy and Our Lady of Perpetual Help schools. They’ll be performing three songs from the Home Alone movies — Somewhere in My Memory, Star of Bethlehem and Merry Christmas, Merry

Christmas. TVCO director Norris Berg noted although the songs are familiar as the movies have become Christmas classics, they’re not really all that easy to sing, particularly for young voices not used to hitting the high notes. Also joining the orchestra for the two performances is the Kamloops Choristers, which will perform several Christmas songs. Joining the Choristers will be Roberta Barlow as accompanist and Shauna Bell on flute for a solo. Kelvin Barlow will be conducting.

And, when those three choirs get together for the singalong finale, Jerusalem — audience participation is expected — there will 180 singers on stage. Jerusalem was one of the songs featured during this year’s royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The TVCO will be performing several pieces, many of them new to the community orchestra. Included in the program are works from How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Polar Express, along with the Skaters Waltz and the suite from the Tannhauser overture. A particular delight,

Berg said, will be the Toy Symphony, which will be performed on toy instruments. With an intermission included, the show should be just under two hours. Admission at the door is $10 for adults, $5 for children and $25 for a family. Berg said people should head for the venue early because parking is limited in the area and, with 100 kids performing and at least one parent attending, space will start to fill up. Choir and orchestra members have been asked to park at the far west end of the nearby Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre.

FAITH

Searching for the time of the desolate abomination

T

HE PROPHET DANIEL FORESAW AN “ABOMINATION THAT MAKES DESOLATE.” It would be “set up” at the “time of the end” (Dan. 12:9, 11, English Standard Version throughout unless otherwise noted). Many claim this means an antichrist must soon place an idolatrous image in a temple in modern-day Jerusalem. An investigation of Scripture and the historical record exposes such speculation as unnecessary. Jesus Christ explained the meaning of Daniel’s prophecy during the Olivet Discourse: “When you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to

MICHAEL FENNEMORE You Gotta Have FAITH the mountains” (Matt. 24:15–16). Notice three important clues here: • Jesus indicated the very people he was speaking to would witness the event; • The abomination would stand, or be “set up,” in something called the “holy place”; • It was the sign for first-century Christians to flee. Christ’s disciples — or at least some of them — would live to see the fulfillment of the abomi-

nation of desolation. This clearly establishes it as an event in the past so any suggestion of a future fulfillment must be dismissed. It is usually assumed “holy place” implies a temple. Granted, the Temple at Jerusalem was referred to as “this holy place” twice in Acts. However, the term had a much broader scope in the ancient Jewish mindset as revealed by the author of 2 Maccabees: “[God] As he promised in the law, will shortly have mercy upon us, and gather us together out of every land under heaven into the holy place.” The “holy place” mentioned here could not be something as small as a temple. It is described as an area that could contain God’s people “out of every land under heaven.” The appearance of the

abomination of desolation was the signal to flee but, from Matthew’s account, the nature of the event is far from clear. Fortunately, Luke illuminates the issue by referring to the sign more specifically: “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it” (Luke 21:20-21). What Matthew refers to as the “abomination of desolation,” Luke calls “armies.” What Matthew refers to as the “holy place,” Luke calls “Jerusalem.” We can conclude the abomination of desolation refers to armies surrounding Jerusalem in the first century. The problem for

Christians was how they could be expected to flee when the city was surrounded by Roman soldiers? As it turned out, just when Roman success was guaranteed, Cestius withdrew his army for no reason, providing an opportunity for escape. Eusebius says they fled to the city of Pella in Perea across the Jordan River. After Jerusalem was finally surrounded by forces under Titus in the spring of A.D. 70, no further opportunity to escape was afforded. Those not recognizing the fulfillment of the abomination of desolation in the autumn of A.D. 66 were destined to suffer starvation, death and, most significantly, the destruction of the Temple and the end of Old Covenant sacrifices forever. This was the fulfillment of Daniel’s

TRAVEL

Meandering through Tallinn’s medieval heart By Jamie Ross SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

M

Y SON AND I ARE seated at a big, rough-hewn wooden table in Olde Hansa, feeling like we are experiencing some sort of time travel, plucked from the 21st century and transported back into the Dark Ages. The only light in the old tavern comes from hundreds of candles which, while atmospherically appealing, also make it difficult to fully determine what is on our plate. We are eating elk steaks, rabbit, bear and boar sausages, cabbage soup and lentils and I’m washing mine down with a goblet of honey beer. It is excellent, if mysterious. Minstrels entertain us, while our serving wench, attired in period garb, tells me the owners consulted historical experts to see what authentic fare should be put on the menu. The restaurant might seem unique in many places but not here in Tallinn, the diminutive capital of Estonia. Tallinn’s Old Town is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. The charming area, dating back to the 13th century, is an addictive warren of maze-like alleyways, grand squares, narrow buildings and cobbled streets. Most of the ancient hamlet’s merchant quarters and cellars are home now to candle-lit coffeehouses and restaurants such as ours, as Tallinn boasts a cafe culture to rival Vienna. A stroll through Tallinn, a UNESCO world heritage site, is a walk into the past. Over the centuries, the Estonian capital, with its coveted position on the Baltic Sea just 60 km across the Gulf of Finland from Helsinki, has fallen under German, Swedish, Danish, Czarist Russian and Soviet rule, and is

more a hybrid creation than many Estonians would care to admit. Don’t miss the Tallinn City Museum, with its entertaining historic displays, or the wonderful artwork in St. Nicholas’s Church. The Old Town is divided into two sections — the Upper Town on Toompea Hill, which was once home to the local gentry, and the Lower Town, which surrounds Town Hall Square. From the Upper Town, one can enjoy the sweeping views of the Lower Town and its heart, the Raekoja Plats — or main square — a broad, sloping market square ringed by pastelcoloured medieval buildings where knights once showed off in chivalrous tournaments, and criminals were chained to pillories for public humiliation. Stone bastions, including 26 watchtowers, still front parts of the medieval village and the old moat is now a beltway of green parks that surrounds the town. The viewpoint also looks down upon Lutheran spires topped with rooster weather-

cocks, the cupolas of Orthodox churches, a beautiful gothic Town Hall, baroque spires, narrow streets lit up for the dinner trade and the tiled, red-roofed buildings of a medieval village amazingly intact despite centuries of occupation. In fact, Tallinn’s Old Town managed to maintain its character throughout the Soviet period, unlike so many other parts of the empire where the crudeness of Soviet power

purposefully obliterated relics of other times. Since 1991, Estonia has been independent and the country’s progress has been astounding. Estonia boasts one of the fastestgrowing economies in the European Nation, which it joined in 2004, and Finnish and other European companies have invested a great deal in their smaller neighbour. Tallinn is slowly being discovered as the

true gem she is. While tourists see a peaceful scene today, Estonians still see reminders of dark times. During a bus tour of the city, Juhan, our guide, jokes that the Hotel Viru, a blocky white skyscraper, was built from a new Soviet wonder material called “micro-concrete” (60 per cent concrete, 40 perncent microphones). St. Olav’s Church is notable for what was once the tallest spire in Scandinavia. It’s also a reminder that the KGB used the church’s tower to block Finnish TV signals. Between 1987 and 1991, mass peaceful night-singing demonstrations at the Tallinn Song Festival grounds just outside of the city helped Estonia regain her sovereignty in 1991. More than 300,000 people, a third of the country, gathered to sing. Locals put on folk costumes knitted by their grandmothers and travelled here to sing in defiance of Soviet rule. This became known as the Singing Revolution. Now, the Song Festival Grounds hosts a huge national festival in celebration every five

Christmas seals help stamp out lung disease For more than 100 years, the Lung Association, Canada’s oldest charity, has been using the holiday-themed seals on its mail to raise awareness of and funds for research

into lung disease. In the early days, the association battled tuberculosis. Today, the mission of the BC Lung Association is to promote lung health and clean air and support

the growing number of British Columbians struggling with breathing problems including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and sleep apnea. “Christmas Seals are a very visible way of showing that people care about the continuing fight against lung disease,” said Deanna Coates,

association volunteer director for the Kamloops region. “Our fundraising target for the 2011 campaign is $1 million. “We’re urging people to give as much as they can to help us maintain the important lung health research and community education and patient support programs we deliver

year round.” The money raised through donations to Christmas Seals funds medical research into the treatment and prevention of lung disease, patient-support programs and services in B.C. communities and helping children choose a smoke-free lifestyle.

Smoking still No. 1 cause of lung cancer X From B18

As many as threemillion Canadians are thought to have the chronic lung disease and more than half of this number are living with the condition undiagnosed. • Lung cancer is the deadliest of all cancers, causing 27 per cent of deaths related to the disease. One in 13 Canadians will develop lung cancer in his or her lifetime. On average, 395 Canadians die from lung cancer every week. Lung cancer causes more deaths then breast and prostate cancer combined. • The No. 1 cause

of lung disease remains smoking and 550,000 BC smokers continue to put themselves and those around them at risk. B.C. has the lowest smoking rate in Canada at approximately 15 per cent, but is home to the third-largest smoking population, after Ontario and Quebec. • Experts worldwide agree the risks to health created by increases in air pollution are greater than ever and the public needs to be better informed. There is an urgent need to take responsibility and stop taking clean air for granted. • One Canadian dies every 20 minutes from lung disease.
