A PENNY NICKEL FOR YOUR THOUGHTS?

TUESDAY

The Canadian penny’s use now exists only in our thoughts — and on our credit-card statements. The beginning of this week marked the end of trading in the penny when completing cash transactions. In a cost-saving measure, the Royal Canadian Mint stopped producing pennies last spring and, effective this week, will stop circulating the iconic brown coins. Any pennies that land in bank vaults will be sent to the Mint.

K A M L O O P S

THIS WEEK

As a result, rounding up and rounding down may join double-double in the Canadian vernacular. The federal government has proposed rounding up or down, to the closest five-cent increment, be used in cash transactions. While plenty of pennies may find their way to jars and drawers to be held as keepsakes, a number of companies — including Home Depot and Tim Hortons — are collecting the coins for charity purposes.

McLeod does not support fellow MPs’ abortion probe By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

While Kamloops’ pro-life activists are supporting a trio of Conservative MPs calling for an investigation into “homicides” stemming from later-term abortions, the city’s Conservative MP isn’t interested in taking up the call. “I’m not getting into the specifics of their letter,” Cathy McLeod told KTW when reached for comment in Ottawa. “I haven’t read their letter and I’ve been in meetings all day, so I haven’t had a chance to look at the details.” The three MPs — Maurice Vellacott, Leon Benoit and Wladyslaw Lizon — have penned a letter to the RCMP, asking the force to investigate cases in which late-term abortions have resulted in live births, with the newborns dying shortly after. The trio highlights

‘I think the issue has been settled in terms of the Canadian public and it is a decision, a very private decision and a very difficult decision, between the mother, her partner and the doctor.’ — Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod

Statistics Canada data originally published on the pro-life blog Run With Life, which shows 491 reported cases of this type of abortion between 2000 and 2009. “These killings appear to have started out as attempted abortions, but the babies were born alive,” the MPs write.

FLIPPING FUN

“According to the Criminal Code, a child is considered to be a human being and a person after proceeding fully from the mother’s womb, therefore . . . there should be 491 homicide investigations or prosecutions in connection with these deaths.” The Kamloops Pro Life society has since issued its own call for an investigation and group spokeswoman Marlene Campbell said the numbers show Canada needs some restrictions on when abortions can be performed in the course of a pregnancy. “Later-term abortions, this is a result, that they’re born alive sometimes,” she said. “And, sometimes they only take a few breaths. I realize that, but sometimes they don’t and they struggle and, with a bit of help, they might survive.”

through a different lens By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The goggles aren’t that different than what you might find hanging around the neck of an average swimmer, with one exception — they are nearly impossible to see through. One eye is covered in duct tape, the other so blurred that everything else in the room, from people to bowling pins, is nothing more than indistinct blobs. With goggles in place and minimal vision left, there is only one thing to do: Pick up a heavy ball and try to chuck it across the room. It’s White Cane Week in Kamloops and the local White Cane Club used its usual afternoon bowling time slot on Monday, Feb. 4, to give sighted members of the public a taste of what life is like for those living with vision loss or blindness. About eight to 10 members of the club meet once a week at Bowlertime on the North Shore. They bowl with assistance from spotters who help them get a sense of where the lane and gutters are located, how many pins are left and — in the words of one club member — “if you’ve used enough force to clean the gutters out.� Among the conditions to experience at the event were macular degeneration, floaters (goggles with lenses covered in small dots and blotches), total blindness or KTW’s

pick — light sensitivity. Event organizer Vern Short, who has macular degeneration, served as the spotter for the KTW team, which also included several city councillors. Leading bowlers by the elbow, he handed over balls, helped them tap out the bounds of the lane using a cane, and — most impressively — managed to look like he was not

Mercier donates $250,000 to TRU Conservative MPs Maurice Vellacott (left), Leon Benoit and Wladyslaw Lizon have asked the RCMP to investigation “homicides” stemming from later-term abortions.

City pro-lifer wants Canada to adopt law as exists in United States

“We have been very involved with TRU’s growth over these last 22 years and can see that universities are important to individuals, families and communities. Mercier designated his donation to be used for student endowments and to help with renovations to the Old Main Building. The gala is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the university, with money generated through tickets — it was a sellout, with 500 people attending — silent and live auctions and donations from supporters. Through the years, the gala has raised $917,712 from tickets, sponsorships and auctions, said Karen Gamracy, the founda-

Guy Mercier believes in education — and it’s one of the reasons the former owner of Acres Enterprises is giving Thompson Rivers University $250,000. Mercier, who sold his construction company last year, made the donation to the TRU Foundation at its 21st annual gala dinner on Saturday, Feb. 2. Mercier’s company first worked on a project at the university in 1990. He’s worked on the main library several times, on the Brown Family House of Learning and on the Campus Activity Centre. “My parents instilled in me a belief in education,” Mercier told the audience at the Grand Hall in the Campus Activity Centre.

Campbell would like to see the country adopt legislation similar to the Born Alive Protection Act in the United States, which extends legal protection to infants born after failed abortion attempts. She said the MPs’ letter should be a wakeup call for Canadians who don’t understand how few restrictions on abortion there are in the country. “It seems to me that we have really descended to infanticide,” she said. McLeod believes it’s important for the government to “stay focused” on its economic agenda, rather than getting drawn into a debate around abortion. “Our government’s been really clear — we’re not going to open this debate and we stand by that commitment,” she said. “I think the issue has been settled in terms of the Canadian public and it is a decision, a very private decision and a very difficult decision, between the mother, her partner and the doctor.”

Parolee accused of beating woman in front of her son A 39-year-old Kamloops man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for parole violation is back behind bars after allegedly beating a woman while her three-year-old son watched. Kamloops RCMP say the man is facing charges of assault, mischief under $5,000, theft under $5,000 and unlawful confinement. He was to appear in Kamloops court on Monday, Feb. 4. The charges stem from a violent domestic assault that took place at a home in the 1700-block of Brunner Avenue just after 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3. Police say the man had been visiting a former female

acquaintance when an argument turned violent. The man is alleged to have assaulted the woman after kicking in the door to the bathroom where she had sought refuge. The man is also accused of stopping the woman from getting away from the apartment, where she lives with her three-year-old son, who was home at the time of incident. Police say the toddler came out of his bedroom to see the man assaulting his mother. During the confrontation, the woman said she was choked and had her head smashed into a wall. She said she bit into the suspect’s hand and he ran from

the building, leaving a blood trail after stealing the woman’s cellphone. Police were called to the by neighbours who heard the scuffle and the woman’s screams for help. A police tracking dog was brought in and the suspect was found and arrested in the 800-block of Newman Avenue after trying to run from Mounties. After slipping and falling on ice, the man surrendered as the police dog and handler caught up to him. During the assault in the apartment, the man sustained a serious bite injury to his hand and the victim received head and neck injuries.

Sears loses one among 700 Sears Canada is laying off 700 workers across Canada, with one position among the 700 being eliminated at the Sears store in Kamloops’ Aberdeen Mall. The layoffs in department stores and distribution centres are part of what Sears director of corporate affairs and communications Alicia Richler called a company “restructuring.” In Kamloops, Richler said, the lone layoff occurred at the management level, noting department stores across the country averaged between three and five layoffs each. Sears is gearing up for the arrival in Canada of the Target chain from the United States. in Kamloops, Target is expected to open in March in the former Zellers location in Sahali Mall. “It’s on the minds of everybody,” Richler said of the departmentstore industry’s pending battle for customers. “In the case of Sears, this [layoffs] was going to happen whether Target was coming or not.” Richler called the decision part of ongoing strategic decisions, which have also included teaming up with other brands — Aldo

BUSINESS and Buffalo jeans, for example. As part of those partnerships, the Aldo Group will design and create footwear for Sears’ Nevada, Attitude and Jessica brands. Buffalo who will make men’s and women’s denim clothing for Sears’ Nevada brand. Sears counts 1,500 pick-up locations. 195 corporate stores, 269 dealer stores and eight home-services showrooms and more than 1,500 merchandise pick-up locations.

Stage is set for British Columbia Senate election

C

ANNON WILL ROAR across Victoria’s Inner Harbour on the morning of Feb. 12 to mark the opening of the 2013 legislature session. Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon will inspect the troops and present her inaugural Throne Speech, setting out the B.C. Liberal government’s goals for the coming year. This ritual will kick off a legislative session that is expected to run until March 14, where the official Parliamentary Calendar shows a three-week break for Easter. Debate is unlikely to resume in April as the election campaign will be in full roar by then. This means there will be a grand total of 19 sitting days to push through a budget and a raft of legislation. Here’s my unofficial preview: The pre-election budget will be presented on Feb. 19 by Finance Minister Michael de Jong. Premier Christy Clark has decreed it must be balanced and the government has made extra efforts to armour itself against what will likely be the loudest debate ahead. First, de Jong held a pre-budget meeting of the government’s bluechip forecast council in public. This provided a visual record of what happens every year, when the finance ministry solicits the same sort of independent advice as most competent democracies, and bases its numbers on that. The finance ministry then hired former Bank of Montreal chief economist Tim

TOM FLETCHER Our Man in

VICTORIA O’Neill, who will act as an unofficial version of the parliamentary budget officer in Ottawa. Now that we have simultaneous oversight of child welfare and the police, the next step is to extend it to finance bureaucrats. Regardless of party, the government has to produce a three-year set of forecasts to replace the current one. A lot of election energy will go into competing claims about who is better at predicting the future. Another new law to be given high priority is one setting up Senate elections, to be run in connection with the May 14 provincial vote. Alberta pioneered this and Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s recent round of senate appointments included Calgary lawyer Doug Black, who won an Alberta Senate election held last year. There was no one appointed to replace Gerry St. Germain, who bid an emotional adieu as a Conservative senator for B.C. last year. St. Germain was instrumental

in uniting the splintered federal Conservatives, but he reached the mandatory retirement age of 75, having been appointed by Brian Mulroney in 1993 after losing his seat as an MP. Why would this Senate reform be so urgent for the B.C. Liberals now? Well, turnout for the 2009 election fell to around 50 per cent, a record low for a provincial vote. If that downward trend is reversed this year, it will be in large part because people are still mad enough about the harmonized sales tax and a range of other issues to get off the couch and kick some B.C. Liberal butt. Electing senators remains a popular notion, especially with older, conservative-minded voters in B.C. who identified with the Reform party. The first-ever Senate election looks like the best available shot at boosting turnout among people who are not likely to vote NDP and who may also be disengaged from provincial politics. Then there is the provincial salestax bill. Another kick in the slats for the movie business, for one, and don’t hold your breath for NDP Leader Adrian Dix to produce a solution in the wake of his recent trip to Hollywood. The performance of the governing party and the opposition will be scrutinized as never before. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

The B.C. Liberal government unveiled an ambitious plan to try to take some of the dissension out of bargaining between boards of education and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. It is an excellent starting point for future discussions, but has almost no chance of being adopted in its entirety — particularly as we are now entering a provincial election campaign, an election that, thus far, the Liberals seem likely to lose. Premier Christy Clark has stated on many occasions she would like to see labour peace in the school system for at least 10 years. This is an admirable goal. Labour disruptions do not help students get a better education. In the last school year, teachers were essentially on a work-to-rule campaign for the entire year and it was not helpful to students or parents — particularly the lack of report cards and lack of dialogue between parents and teachers. The provincial proposal calls for teachers, through the BCTF, to have more of a voice in education policy decisions. It also calls for teachers’ wages over the next 10 years to be based on an indexing of other major B.C. public-sector wage settlements, which would ensure they do not fall behind. It also would let the BCTF, at some point in time, regain the right to strike. In addition, the province is ready to put $100 million into a Priority Education Investment Fund. In the third year of the agreement, it would be available to address education priorities — and teachers would be among those with a say on what those priorities would be. The province also wants a more transparent bargaining process and clear timelines of when bargaining takes place and contracts are agreed to. There is no question bargaining with the BCTF has been seriously flawed for many years. Agreements have been few and far between and, even when one side or the other makes concessions, controversy seems inevitable. Part of this is due to the feeling by the BCTF that it deserves a voice in setting policy. While it has every right to discuss policy with the province, in fact, under NDP, Liberal and Social Credit governments, this has rarely gone smoothly. This proposal actually sets up a formal avenue for the BCTF to be involved in policy discussions — and it needs to be careful not to reject something it has long wanted.

Re: Story: Ice cubists at work: “Keep it going. “My eight-year-old looks every single time we drive by and hopes to see colours!” — posted by Darlene Dyer “Always wondered what the story was behind those colours. “Keep it up.” — posted by Kev Bry “As an artist, I enjoy seeing your work and your icy canvas that you have to work on. “Keep it going for sure.” — Wayne Broomfield “It is beautiful and it brightens my day. “Keep it up.” — posted by Linda Fitzgerald “I, too, have been wondering for years who was behind colouring the Guerin Creek waterfall. “Personally, I would rather just look at this frozen waterfall without any colour added.” — posted by Sean T. Harris

Aboriginal Incorporated has become entrenched Editor: Regarding the Idle No More movement, I offer the following: Over the years, we have all listened and watched as successive Canadian governments have tried to deal with the residue of our colonial past. On the evidence, a wide range of policies and a huge amount of our money have failed to solve a seemingly insolvable problem of abortive aboriginal treaties, perceived entitlements and social disasters. Many good people on both sides of the fence have spent lives of frustration using different administrative models to no lasting effect. The only consistent result of more than 100 years of wasted time, money and lives is the fact that, for many, being a treaty aboriginal has become a business in and of itself. Aboriginal Incorporated has become a way of life, a leadershipmanagement philosophy, a negotiating tool, a public spectacle and a very lucrative business model, at least for a few. The latest public display of Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence and her Aboriginal Inc. handlers has backfired and, with the release of the audit report on her financial management of millions of tax dollars, we see what really is the issue — the criminal misappropriation of funds intended to help the social ills of an important, but socially failing segment of the Canadian population. This has to stop. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, while expecting a different result. A failed policy approach is a failed policy approach and 100plus years should be sufficient evidence that enough is enough.

B.C. Liberals suffer ‘bilious attacks’ Editor: Two local B.C. Liberals appear to have suffered bilious attacks this past week. First, it was Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger fuming bitterly about the gall of postsecondary requests for long-term funding. Meanwhile his junior partner and wannabe successor, Todd Stone, expressed his upset feelings over the NDP’s positive advertising. Why does this moderate approach gall Stone so much? Well, apparently, it’s because deep within the bowels of the NDP’s first ad, there’s an oblique reference to the use of negative advertising by the B.C. Liberals. I get it. It’s offensively negative to comment on the other side’s negativity. To paraphrase you-know-who, the lad doth protest too much, methinks. Peter Northcott Kamloops

We need to start from first principles: 1) No one in Canada is above the law of the land; 2) Your economic well-being is your responsibility. It is not the government’s job to pay you to fish and hunt; 3) Employment rules apply to everyone. If you can’t get a job where you live: move; 4) If you receive public funds, you are accountable. Penalties apply; 5) Theft is theft; 6) If funds are spent poorly or the recipients do not care for the infrastructure and benefits provided, funds will not be replaced; 7) Treaties will be respected in the context of the date of the treaty and the standards of the day; 8) Administrative costs and the pay of local leadership will be set by the people who fund the operation; 9) As our municipalities are governed by provincial rules; so the reserves will be governed by federal rules. I believe this list is a good start, but is clearly a work in progress. I further believe a valid counter to the Idle No More movement needs to be a strong Enough Is Enough movement. We have had enough. I truly hope the government gets the picture and puts its foot down once and for all. If enough Canadians repeat this message, then perhaps the abusive power of Aboriginal Inc. will be lessened and the real needs of the thousands of aboriginal Canadians in need can be met. Enough is enough! Mike Collings Kamloops

Embracing Mother Nature Editor: I am adding my voice to the many opposed to the proposed Ajax mine. I have lived in Kamloops for 50 years and the smell of sagebrush is in my blood. I have spent my whole life enjoying the beauty of the natural grasslands and forests surrounding our city. I choose to live here because I can step out my door and, in minutes, be hiking up a rolling hill or around a glistening lake. I cannot count how many times a year I drive Goose Lake Road (where the mine would be located) just for the sheer beauty of the area. David Suzuki wrote a wonderful article in the Jan. 13 edition of the Globe and Mail (‘What if Mother Nature had rights? She does in Ecuador’) in

which he tells us Ecuador’s constitution is “the first in the world to give rights to nature. In other words, trees, animals, rivers — entire ecosystems have the constitutional right to exist and flourish.” Suzuki wrote that “it’s a far cry from Canada’s Ministry of Environment, which is more about managing human use of the environment than about

Mother Nature herself.” Other Latin American countries are also making great strides in this direction. The proposed Ajax mine would result in the destruction of many species and their habitat. Kamloops would become just another ugly, dirty, depressing mining town like all others across Canada. Believe me, I’ve been to many of them. I want to live in a beautiful, healthy and lifeaffirming city. I want the natural ecosystem here to be recognized as a living organism that has rights and is preserved and protected. Like many others, I choose to embrace Mother Nature, not destroy her. Sandi Mikuse Kamloops

final time on Feb.21 as he retires after 27 years with the national police force, the last eight in Kamloops. Four days later, on Feb. 25, Lacasse will begin his new career as manager of external affairs for KGHM International, the company planning to build the Ajax copper and gold mine immediately south of Aberdeen. Lacasse said he was initially approached in early December by a headhunting firm asking if he would be interested in meeting with KGHM senior management. He was and, soon enough, Lacasse was discussing the proposed mine — and the various opinions it has elicited in Kamloops. “They knew my opinions were respected in the community,” Lacasse said. “Not to sound cocky, but I think I’ve done a lot in the community.” Lacasse said he has been a supported of the proposed Ajax project from the beginning, noting he was raised in a mining town, Thetford Mines, Que. “I’ve seen the benefits of the mining industry,” he said, pointing to his volunteer role with the United Way in the past few years, a role that has led to realizing how much community aid

When I spoke with senior management staff at KGHM, they see this [Ajax] as an incredible opportunity for Kamloops.” Lacasse said his role will be to get as much information as possible on the mine proposal to those in the community who want it, noting he is well aware of calls, from politicians and residents, for KGHM to be more

open with facts and figures associated with the project. He is also cognizant of the fact many residents are not opposed to mining, but to Ajax’s proposed location immediately south of Aberdeen. “I get that,” Lacasse said. “Before Ajax gets a permit, it will have to go through an extensive review process by two levels of government. “These people want to do things right.

LOCAL NEWS ‘Yves and IShop have had blunt Shop Smart, discussions, but we come away still respecting each other.’ — Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar

Hoping Lacasse can quell divisiveness By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Yves Lacasse will be little more than a figurehead for the company behind the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine when he starts his new job there, according one of the activists working to stop the project. Lacasse will retire as superintendent of the Kamloops RCMP on Feb. 21 and assume his new role as manager of external affairs for KGHM International on Feb. 25. “It doesn’t appear this new hire has much experience in the mining industry,” said John Schleiermacher of the Kamloops Area Preservation Association (KAPA), adding he expects Lacasse “will handle the job by following a script.” Schleiermacher said his experience dealing with publicrelations employees with KGHM International, the company promoting the mine just south of Aberdeen, has been that “they weren’t up to snuff with what’s going on.” Schleiermacher noted his experience at a recent open house KGHM held to discuss the proposed mine. “I talked with the young people representing Ajax and none had much information on this

project. They had a lot of promises, but no specifics.” He said he is disappointed the company did not hire someone with a background in mining to handle the public face of the project. Donna Sambolec, another KAPA member, said she is pleased Lacasse is staying in Kamloops and hopes that commitment to the community will be reflected in how he handles his job. “I’m hoping that, with this, they will start to be more forthcoming, especially with baseline studies” about the mine and its impact on the environment, she said. Sambolec said she felt confident in speaking for the rest of KAPA in wishing Lacasse well in his new job. In the KTW story on the preceding page outlining Lacasse’s decision to retire and join the Ajax team, he said his family has decided Kamloops is their home and they plan to remain here. Mayor Peter Milobar said he learned of Lacasse’s decision on Wednesday, Jan. 30, and was surprised. “You always hope, when you people of that calibre in a job, you hope they stay in it,” Milobar said, noting he can understand Lacasse’s desire to have some

permanent roots in a community, given the RCMP’s propensity to move its members around. The mayor noted that in his new role, however, Lacasse can “only provide information as he gets it. “But, we’re still going through the environmental-assessment process and, hopefully, he will bring something to this that will address the divisiveness this project has created.” The mayor expects to have some input into the new head of the detachment and plans to speak to senior RCMP officers who will be involved in the hiring process by early next week. City council will also have to have a discussion about the position, Milobar said, looking at the human-resources aspects of it. Milobar said council has had a unique relationship with its police detachment, one that is the envy of other mayors in B.C., noting a new superintendent will have to be receptive to that arrangement. He said Kamloops is a frontrunner in creating a good level of communication and discussion between council and the police. “I would hope that would continue. It’s not always easy. “Yves and I have had blunt discussions, but we come away still respecting each other.”

“I’m no different than all of you,” he said. “I’ve asked the same questions of the [KGHM] leadership. They want to adopt best practices. They don’t want to come here to pollute the town.” When Lacasse begins work for KGHM on Feb. 25, he said his goal will be to connect with the community. “Clearly, I’m not a mining expert,” he said. “I’m going to try to get up to speed. I want to help people access the information they want and need. They know I have communicated well with the community as chief of police. “Those who know me know I am passionate about the well-being of the City of Kamloops. This opportunity will allow me to work with the community to inform, consult and resolve issues related to this project. “I know this project has its challenges and its critics, but I want to assure you I will serve in my new role with the well-being of the community in mind, something that is also very important to the company. KGHM International wants to become a community

leader and I am excited about the opportunity to work with them and guide our efforts.” As for why he is retiring now, Lacasse cited stability, noting his family does not want to leave Kamloops, something that is always a possibility being a Mountie. “It’s about uncertainty, about not being in control of my future,” he said. “This gives me the ability to put my family’s mind at ease.” In the press release, Lacasse noted the police work done during his eight years with the detachment, • “We’ve reduced crime and worked with the community to resolve issues that have led to a tighter bond amongst citizens.” • “We introduced world-renowned crime reduction strategies that have helped to keep organized crime and gangs out of Kamloops.” • “We engaged the community and our partners in issue resolution and set clear expectations for the future, allowing us to build strong personal relationships here in Kamloops. Our combined efforts have allowed us to create a department that functions with continuous improvement at its core.”

Krueger 13th among B.C. MLAs in travel expenses Kamloops MLA Kevin Krueger didn’t quite crack the top 10, but the latest travelexpense summaries from Victoria show the outgoing KamloopsSouth Thompson Liberal MLA had the 13th-highest expenditures during the final nine months of 2012. All told, the two local MLAs billed taxpayers for $55,105, with $47,567 of that coming from Krueger. Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake had $7,538 in travel expenses between April 1 and Dec. 31, 2012. However, that number does not take into account expenses from his role as minister of environment, which are reported separately and on a different schedule. According to the most recent ministerial expense report, Lake had $22,571 in travel expenses as of

Nov. 30, 2012. Krueger spent $9,000 on accommodations in Victoria and $3,663 on per-diem expenses. MLAs get $61 per day while in the capital on legislative business and are not required to provide receipts on perdiem spending. Krueger claimed $23,592 in general travel expenses and another $3,564 for inconsituency travel. Lake claimed no accommodation expenses and $4,736 in travel within his riding. This is the second time travel expenses for B.C. MLAs have been released. The information includes accommodation allowances in Victoria for members outside the Lower Mainland. Total expenses for all 85 MLAs were $2.3 million. At the top of the

expenses list was Skeena New Democrat MLA Robin Austin, with just over $75,000

Kamloops Blazers Sports Society doles out $278K The Kamloops Blazers Sports Society has approved grants to 24 organizations totalling $278,000 as part of its 2013 funding process of the sports legacy fund. Since 2009, 66 sport organizations have received $1.44 million in grants from the fund. Highlighted this year is $80,000 for the community-coaching grants administered by Pacific Sport Interior, a grant of $30,000 to the Kamloops KidSport chapter to help financially disadvantaged youth participate in organized sport and a matching $40,000 grant to the Overlander Ski Club to completed improvements to the Stake Lake facility, to be disbursed over three years at $13,333 per year.

The 2013 allotment includes the second of five annual payments of $15,000 to the Kamloops Minor Baseball Association, which has just completed its indoor-training building on McArthur Island. The recently incorporated Kamloops Adapted Sport Association received $24,000 to purchase sport wheelchairs and will partner with the Kamloops-Thompson school district to promote awareness of adapted sport within the secondary school physical-education curriculum and in the community. And, the Kamloops Judo Club will buy new mats with a $25,000 grant. Legacy funds continue to be used by local sport organiza-

tions to enhance their programs either by equipment purchases, capital improvements or investing in coaching development. The annual application period extends from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30 each year and the allocation by the nine members board of directors takes place in January. The $7-million fund was generated by the 2007 sale of the Kamloops Blazers Hockey Club franchise and an investment by the Blazers Sports Foundation in 2008. For more information, go online to kamloopsblazerssportssociety.com. Go to kamloopsthisweek.com to see a full list of grant recipients.

Killer talks of ‘real’ killer Roger Badour links plea to treatment By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

A man who admitted in December to killing Gisele Duckham of Princeton now says he knows who the real killer, has video related to it and is not getting proper medical care while in custody at the Kamloops Regional Correction Centre (KRCC). Roger Badour, 64, admitted in B.C. Supreme Court in December that he shot and killed Duckham and fled the scene. However, he continued to tell Justice Robert Powers he was pleading guilty so he would be sent to federal prison, where he believes he would get better medical care. Badour has been in custody since Nov. 8, 2011. Powers was concerned the guilty plea was not voluntary and adjourned the matter, telling Badour to contact legal aid to have a lawyer assist him. On Monday, Feb. 4, Badour was back in court before Justice Hope Hyslop. Crown counsel Lorne Fisher noted Badour was in court without legal representation Wearing headphones because he has hearing loss, Badour said he had made several phone calls to legal aid “because the judge said he’d give me a lawyer, but a lawyer didn’t come.” Badour told Hyslop he is only allowed an hour a day to use the phone

and sometimes that hour fell outside regular working hours, making it difficult to contact legal aid. He said during one conversation with legal aid, he was given another phone number to call in Penticton, but that person’s message system indicated it was full. At one point during his address to the court, Badour said he knows the identity of the real murder — “but I’m not going to say.” He said he had video related to it and that he had been working as security for the person who he claims committed the murder. “I don’t mean to be blackmailing,” Badour told Hyslop, “but I need to see a doctor.” Badour said he has been refused treatment for cancer, medication he requires for a bipolar condition is missing and his requests to KRCC staff have been met with assurances he is receiving the medicine he requires. Badour offered to show Hyslop lumps on his body, describing one as having grown from the size of a pencil eraser to four times that size. He told Hyslop he is “sick and tired of halfway houses and I’m doing this guilty plea to get off parole and back into prison.” Hyslop adjourned the case to Tuesday, Feb. 12, to give Fisher time to make the necessary contacts and be prepared to report back to her.

Domtar workers have voted against a company adjustment plan. KTW file photo

Domtar adjustment plan up in smoke By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

Andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

An adjustment plan offered to unionized workers at the Domtar pulp mill in the face of major layoffs this spring has been rejected. Doug Cumming, interim president of the Communications, Energy and Paperworks Local 10B, said 88 per cent of workers voted to reject the plan on Thursday, Jan. 31. Turnout for the vote was high. Cumming again declined to release details of the plan, which the company said was meant to minimize the impact of an upcoming line shutdown. Domtar intends to lay off about 125 workers this spring as it permanently closes one of two pulp machines at the Kamloops operation. Of that number, 107 would be union positions.

Cumming said the company’s plan did offer severance packages for those facing job loss, but they came “at too high of a cost in concessions” to win member approval. “It would appear the company wanted too many concessions from the collective agreement in order to achieve their adjustment plan,” Cumming said. The union will now meet with Domtar to negotiate a plan within the bounds of its current contract, which was negotiated in October, 2012, just two months before the company announced its layoff plans. “The local is ready any time Domtar would like to attempt another adjustment plan,” Cumming said. “The local is always willing to sit down.” Domtar spokesperson Bonny Skene said the company doesn’t plan to bring another

package forward at this time. “Naturally we’re disappointed the proposed offer wasn’t supported by the union membership because it did follow several weeks of good-faith discussions,” she said. Domtar announced in December that it would shut down its smaller A-line pulp operation, which produces pulp from sawdust. The company cited costly boiler repairs and a lack of competitiveness in the global marketplace as reasons for the closure. Skene said the A-line will close by the end of March, with layoffs following. “We’re contemplating affected employees being laid off in waves, with the first wave likely early-to-mid April,” she said. The mill’s larger B-line operation, which produces pulp from softwood, will remain operational.

Government aid in housing reno B.C. Housing is preparing for major renovations to the Sundergreen complex on Mulberry Avenue and Clapperton Road. The two apartment buildings were originally bought and renovated by the Door to Roof Society in Kamloops, but its executive director, Dawn Hrycan,

said three years into the project, “we were looking at repairs in the millions of dollars, not the hundred-thousands of dollars, so we asked B.C. Housing if it wanted to help us out.” Following protracted negotiations last year and an assessment of the work required, the government agency

said it would take on the project if ownership was transferred to it. “There was no way the society could do all the work,” Hrycan said, noting among deficiencies is the need for new roofs and heating systems in the buildings. “It was in the best interests of the tenants to do this. It insures

there are resources available. For example, if you need new carpets in 10 units at $2,000 a pop, then that can get done.” In an email, B.C. Housing said it took over operating Sundergreen to “protect this important stock of affordable rental housing in Kamloops.”

Hrycan said the transfer was seamless and caused no disruption to the tenants. She added the society is taking a break from acquiring properties for a while, although the board is considering the possibility of building rental units instead of renovating existing ones.

Speeding vehicle reveals $61,000 A traffic stop north of Kamloops has led to police finding and seizing $61,000 in cash from the trunk of the vehicle. On the afternoon of Tuesday, Jan. 29, an RCMP officer stopped the southbound vehicle on Highway 5 in Darfield, about 75 kilometres north of Kamloops, between Barriere and Clearwater. While dealing with the driver, police say the officer noted some

things that led to a probe under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act. A police dog was used to search the vehicle and evidence found led to the arrest of the 35-year-old driver from Surrey. Cash — $61,140 — was found in a suitcase in the trunk of the vehicle. The driver will appear in Kamloops Law Courts on April 11 to face a charge of possession of property obtained by crime.

Thank You!

Here’s what $61,000 looks like when stuffed in the trunk of a vehicle.

Parolee arrested in Summerland A federal parolee who walked away from a Kamloops halfway house last month has been arrested in Summerland. Penticton RCMP arrested Andrew Robert Hardenstine without incident in the south Okanagan town on Sunday, Feb. 2. Hardenstine, a 33-year-old federal parolee, was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant. Hardenstine left a halfway house in Kamloops on Jan. 14 and did not return. RCMP issued a public bulletin

about his disappearance, stating he has a lengthy criminal record of violence against people. According to court documents, Hardenstine has multiple prior convictions, including possession of property obtained by crime, theft under $5,000, theft over $5,000, robbery and break and enter — all stemming from incidents in Penticton. He was also found guilty of possession of cocaine, crystal meth, ecstasy and marijuana following a 2010 vehicle stop in Surrey.

Auto thefts on decline in Kamloops Auto thefts and break-ins continue to decrease in Kamloops. Statistics compiled by the provincial government, ICBC and the Inegrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team show there were 40 per cent fewer vehicle thefts and 20 per cent fewer breakins in 2012, compared to 2011. Taking the long

view, the rate is 83 per cent in both categories for last year, compared to 2003. Across the province, auto theft dropped seven per cent last year. There was a small increase in theft from vehicles provincewide at the end of 2012. Looking at the situation through the years, there were 480 auto thefts in 2003,

370 in 2004, 350 in 2005, 320 in 2006, 410 in 2007, 310 in 2008, 180 in 2009, 200 in 2010, 140 in 2011 and 80 in 2012. Theft from vehicle statistics for the city include: 1,080 in 2003, 880 in 2004, 700 in 2005, 560 in 2006, 530 in 2007, 260 in 2008, 230 in 2009, 240 in 2010, 230 in 2111 and 190 in 2012.

Andrew Robert Hardenstine is back behind bars after walking away from a Kamloops halfway house on Jan. 14.

Fines follow spring 2012 fire Eight months after a forest fire was doused north of Westsyde, the last of the seven people charged in connection with the material that fed the blaze have pleaded guilty. All seven people admitted in bylaw court to dumping pallets on Noble Lake Service Road, from which the fire started. All seven were fined $500 each, with the final four finishing up in court on Friday, Feb. 1. The cost to douse the blaze was about $67,000. The fire occurred at the 1.7-kilometre mark of Noble Lake Service Road and was fought by Kamloops Fire Rescue and BC Forest Service firefighters, with a DC-3 air tanker dropping several loads of retardant in the effort. “The City of Kamloops is pleased with the outcome and felt that a clear message was sent to the public that this type of behaviour will not be accepted in our community,” said KFR Capt. Sheldon Guertin.

The Kamloops Blazers will be looking to make it three wins in a row when the Everett Silvertips are in town on Thursday, Feb. 7. Puck-drop is slated for 7 p.m. at Interior Savings Centre. Kamloops won twice on the weekend — knocking off the Spokane Chiefs 7-4 at ISC on Friday, Feb. 1, before earning a 3-2 shootout victory over the ‘Tips in Everett on Saturday, Feb. 2. Tim Bozon and Kale Kessy each scored twice for Kamloops in the win over Spokane and JC Lipon scored the shootout winner for the Blazers against the Silvertips. Cole Cheveldave backstopped the Blue and Orange in both games. Colin Smith was named the WHL’s player of the week for the period ending Sunday, Feb. 3. He racked up four goals and 10 points last week en route to earning the honour for the third time this season. Smith is third in league scoring with 36 goals and 86 points.

The B.C. Lions will hold training camp in Kamloops for at least another two years. “Our time in Kamloops has been nothing short of amazing,” said Dennis Skulsky, Leos president and CEO. “World-class facilities, outstanding corporate support and the dedication of Lions fans in the Interior make this decision very easy.” The Lions signed a deal with the City of Kamloops three years ago, agreeing to hold training camp at Hillside Stadium in 2010, 2011 and 2012, with an option for 2013. On Monday, Feb. 4, the CFL club exercised the option and announced an extension through to 2014. The Lions signing an extension to remain in the Tournament Capital was no sure bet, with

many expecting camp to go elsewhere. Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Courtenay and Kelowna were among the rumoured potential locations. The 2011 Grey Cup champions return this year to the River City late in May and kick camp off on June 2. “The City of Kamloops is extremely pleased the B.C. Lions will be coming back to Kamloops for training camp,” Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar said. “Their decision to extend the contract is a testament to the quality facilities in our city, our hosting abilities and amazing support by our residents and business community.”

Wolves money on hardcourt The TRU WolfPack women’s basketball team kept its hopes for a home playoff game alive with a pair of wins over the Trinity Western University (TWU) Spartans at the Tournament Capital Centre. TRU (14-5) earned an 81-72 win over TWU on Thursday, Jan. 31, a night before claiming a 72-60 victory over the Spartans on Friday, Feb. 1. “These were mustwins if we have any chance of hosting,” WolfPack bench boss Scott Reeves said. “We had to win these games.” TRU needs to sweep its remaining games — two against the Fraser Valley Cascades and one against the UBC Okanagan Heat — and

get help from a few underdogs if Canada West post-season basketball at the TCC is in the cards. Reeves was just happy his team did its part against the Spartans on home turf. “We have done well on our home court,” he said. “I think that goes into the culture that we wanted to build here.” In men’s basketball play, TRU fell twice to TWU — losing 93-70 on Thursday and 83-75 on Friday. The WolfPack men (6-13) will miss the playoffs.

Net loss The WolfPack men’s and women’s volleyball squads will not be on the prowl when the Canada West post-season rolls around. TRU’s men (7-13) earned a split with the Mount Royal Cougars on the weekend, but needed to win both matches to remain in the playoff hunt. The WolfPack women have long been eliminated from post-season contention. TRU’s record dropped to 0-20 on the season with a pair of losses to TWU on the weekend.

Tips on how to fight the winter fitness blues Exercise indoors at this time of year can get a little tedious, especially if you prefer training outdoors, but there are so many ways to fight the boredom. Classes give us a chance to exercise in a more social environment and have someone else tell us what to do. Often, the biggest challenge is keeping things fresh and interesting and coming up with something challenging. Let someone else do the planning for you and use your energy for the workout itself. A change of scenery can be helpful. If you normally swim, try walking the track. If you’ve been walking the track for years, try swimming or water running. If you have always meant to try weight training, now is the time to try. Look into having a personal trainer write a program tailored to you and increase resistance slowly. Any motivation that gets us moving when the daylight is reduced is good motivation.

SHAWN WENGER Fitness For MORTALS Sometimes friends are the best. They get us to sign up for things we might not normally do. I’ve been doing my best to convince friends to join me on Sunday, Feb. 10 at the Kamloops Indoor GranFondo, so I don’t have to ride for the full six hours without company. It’s open to anyone who wants to come and support the Kamloops chapter of the MS Society. Whether you ride six, four or two hours — or even 45 minutes — at the Tournament Capital Centre, you are still pedalling your way to helping services in your own community and there will be tons going on to keep you entertained during

the ride. The Interior Grasslands Cycling Club will be there with their new roller-racing setup to open up some friendly competitions with anyone interested in sprinting without actually going anywhere. The front of the bike is bolted down, so I’m excited that I won’t be able to crash. The day includes entertainment, cycling videos, instructor-led workouts, door prizes and celebrity challenges. All-day family and youth activities will be available, such as KidZone, XploreSportz, a free family swim and a tots bike parade. The kids are the only ones who will get to actually ride around the track, even though I know many of us adults wish it could be us. Catharine Pendrel will be joining in during the last two hours to participate in some of the roller-racing challenges, to share some race footage and lead the countdown to a group finish that

just can’t happen on the road in an outdoor fondo. She will then share her Olympic experience during the postride social, open to all registered riders. If you haven’t yet registered for the event, you can do so at kamloopsgranfondo.ca. If you have a bike, but no indoor trainer, there are still trainers available for rent. If you don’t have a bike, reserve one of the Keiser stationary bikes. And, if you’ve been thinking about buying a trainer, reserve one at the special Kamloops Indoor GranFondo price through Spoke N Motion. Collecting pledges is welcome, but optional. The main thing is registering and being part of the group energy and cycling community. Shawn Wenger is a BCRPA-registered personal trainer and weight-training and group-fitness instructor. She runs Fitness For Mortals. E-mail fitnessformortals@gmail.com for information.

HOME PLAY

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Hannah Franes is looking forward to that moment when Anne-Arky is finally presented at the Stage House Theatre. The 16-year-old is familiar with theatre, having been a student at Western Canada Theatre’s Stage One courses, but then, there was someone else directing the plays. This time, it’s Hannah and two other students overseeing the play — and they’ve been involved from before a script was chosen, through building the sets, creating the costumes, making the posters and selling the tickets.

Hannah and all the other students involved in the project are home-schooled, most through the Self-Design High School program. Donna Vanderlip, whose children Cora and Lukas are also in the program — and Stage One veterans — approached local actor and theatre educator Terri Runnalls to see if she’d work with the group on a theatrearts project. Runnalls said she has acted mainly as a mentor, with the students taking on every task involved to stage a play. They began by looking for possible scripts they could work with, bringing them to a

class and discussing their merits. From that, Runnalls said, Anne-Arky was chosen. The play by Lindsay Price, who has written several plays for high-school students, is about a high-school drama club about to present Anne of Green Gables. Everything is proceeding smoothly when a rumour spreads there is an acting agent in the audience. The students all scramble to be discovered and mayhem ensues. “The idea there is an agent in the audience makes everyone freaky,” Hannah said. “The play is really, really funny.” Although each is home-

Clockwise from left are Julia Franes, Lukas Vanderlip, Katie Newton, Isaac Nelson and Maia Nunn. The group of home-schooled kids have worked with Terri Runnals on a project that will see them present the comedy Anne-Arky from Thursday, Feb. 7, to Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Stage House Theatre, 422 Tranquille Rd. Dave Eagles/KTW

schooled, the students knew each other through the community that has sprung up in Kamloops supporting the Self-Design program. That made it easier to work together, Hannah said, and make decisions. “Nothing’s been really hard,” she said, “although it is getting a bit nerve-wracking. “I’ll be glad when we are doing the actual play. It will be presented at the theatre, 422 Tranquille Rd., from Thursday, Feb. 7, to

Saturday, Feb. 9. Students have been involved in everything from creating the sets to putting together the costumes to handling the marketing and promotion. They’ve designed posters and tickets and are now, as they finish rehearsals, out promoting their creation. Runnalls said the process has been rewarding for her because, although she has worked with some of the students as the head of Stage

One, “so many of these kids have never set foot on a stage.” She took on the project outside her work as the education co-ordinator for WCT. While her charges may be nervous about their impending debuts, Runnalls — herself a veteran actor in Kamloops — has no doubt they’ll do great. “They’ve done it all,” she said, “and they’ve been great. They’ll do great.” Tickets are $10 each — the money will go to pay the costs associated with the production — and are available at the door or by calling 250-5542388. Showtime is 7 p.m.

Documentary starts annual film festival The World Before Her, a hard-hitting documentary that looks at the lot of women in India, kicks off the Kamloops Film Festival on March 7. The documentary by Nisha Pahuja goes behind the scenes of two different but real training camps — one to declare Miss India and one to ensure young girls grow up to be good Hindu women who will fight Christianity, Islam and any Western influences. The film won top awards last year at the Tribeca and Hot Docs film festivals, as well as at the Edmonton International Film Festival. It received special recognition at film festivals in Warsaw, San Diego, St. Louis and

Anchorage and was chosen fan favourite and the Vancouver Film Critics Circle. Pahuja has worked on many documentaries in Canada, including the Gemini Award-winning Diamond Road, which she co-wrote and directed and which looked at the global diamond trade and Bollywood Bound, the story of four IndoCanadians who travel to their homeland to make it big in Bollywood. Other films in the series include Smashed on March 8, Ernest et Celestine and Holy Motors on March 9, Amour on March 11, Rust and Bone on March 14 and Robot and Frank on March 16.

Going to Church on a wild Saturday night By Nigel Hanks SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Whoever said outlaw country means unsuccessful has not seen Eric Church perform. Playing on his Blood Sweat and Beers tour for an exceptionally enthusiastic crowd at the Interior Savings Centre on Saturday, Feb. 2, Church’s brand of Grand Ole Opry-certified country-rock had the old-time feel of a jamboree with the pyrotechnics of a Metallica concert. Church materialized on stage in a cloud of smoke like a phantom, sporting a pair of aviator sunglasses and an old baseball hat, opening with Country Music Jesus, a lively tune from his new album, Chief, that set the tone for the night. Among the hubris of rock riffs and flatpicking was the stomping of boots and the cheers from the crowd, a couple of scuffles and the spilling of gallons of beer, the title of the tour living up to its name.

“You guys feel like getting stoned?” Church asked the crowd to an spirited response before performing his song I’m Getting’ Stoned. An altered Canadian flag (with the maple leaf replaced with a cannabis leaf) was a recurrent motif. Songs like that and Jack Daniels presented Church’s humorous side. Perhaps most memorable was Church’s hit Creepin’, as green lights and smoke created a spooky atmosphere that built up the crowd’s suspense, which was only diminished by the sea of cellphones now synonymous with coliseum concerts. He also performed his latest single, the solemn Like Jesus Does. Church and his band put on a great party, not just through his performance but also via the crowd’s. Folks were able to get up and dance, which is refreshing to see considering some concerts resemble going to the movies. It was a true country show with a rock-and-roll atmosphere, a combination difficult to resist.

Brad Paisley to headline Mission music festival Fans longing for the glory days of the Merritt Mountain Music Festival may want to pencil in Mission as a summer destination. One of the world’s top country acts will be headlining the annual Rockin’ River Music Festival in the Fraser Valley town. Brad Paisley will anchor the threeday August country-music festival (Aug.15, 16 and 17) that has already announced Big and Rich and Joe Nichols as formidable acts to appear this year. “We’re tremendously excited to have Brad Paisley headline the fifth annual Rockin’ River festival,” concert organizer Kenny Hess said. “Brad Paisley is one of the world’s top country acts and having him at Mission Raceway will be the Lower Mainland’s top country show of the year.” Paisley’s Southern Comfort Zone is sitting in the 12th spot on the Billboard country charts. The song will be on his upcoming album Wheelhouse, which will be released on April 9. The native of West Virginia has had 20 singles at the top of the charts Paisley has a long list of hits — including Whiskey Lullabye, Remind Me, Mud on the Tires, Water, I’m Still a Guy and Water — and has won three Grammy Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and 14 Country Music Association Awards, including Entertainer of the Year for 2010.

4Runner still shines on and off the road

F

OLLOWING A LONG LINE OF FORD BRONCOS, GMC JIMMIES, JEEP WAGONEERS AND THE LIKE, THE TOYOTA 4RUNNER WAS BY NO MEANS THE FIRST SPORT UTILITY. But, it did usher in a segment that, when you consider its many offshoots, accounts for a huge percentage of vehicles you see on the road today. The 4Runner bowed in mid-1984 as a 1985 model, based on Toyota’s rugged four-wheel-drive compact pickup. It bore little resemblance to the big, leather-lined models you will see in showrooms today, having only two front seats and a removable fibreglass top covering the cargo area. This SUV was powered by the company’s legendary 2.4-litre 22R inline four-cylinNEIL MOORE der, which was also found in the pickup — my first new ride First — and I’ll attest that, despite its DRIVE small displacement, this engine still packed a punch and, as long as you changed the oil, was nearly indestructible. Not so for the sheet metal — but that’s another story. A turbo was soon added and then dropped for a 3.0-litre V6 engine and, as the SUV genre evolved from enclosed pickup trucks into something more refined, Toyota dropped the removable fibreglass top and gradually made the 4Runner larger, more powerful and more luxurious. The company, to its credit, never gave up on 4Runner’s off-road ability, but it did bend somewhat to market pressures that turned many SUVs into bloated, posh urban cruisers that spent more time ferrying kids to soccer practice than plying muddy trails and fording boulder-strewn river beds. Prior to the launch of the current, fifth-generation model, Toyota took a survey of 4Runner owners that found many believed the vehicle lacked a rugged, purposeful look to match its true capabilities. So, it responded by bucking the trend toward a carbased, unibody design and embraced its truck-based ladder frame.

Toyota 4Runner at a glance Body style: Intermediate SUV. Drive method: Front-engine, four-wheel-drive. Engine: 4.0 litre DOHC 24-valve V6 (270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque). Cargo: 250 litres behind third row, 1,300 litres behind second row, 2,500 litres behind first row. Towing capacity: 5,000 lbs. Fuel economy: (Regular) 12.7/9.4/11.2L/100 km (city/ highway/combined). Price: Base SR5 $37,990, upgrade package $44,420, Trail Edition $45,615, Limited $49,085, as tested with third row $49,885. Website: toyota.ca.

This was clad in a body devoid of soft curves and ellipses and, instead, wore pronounced, squared-off fender flares, wide shoulders, masculine grille and overall nononsense styling. The company swapped its 4.7-litre V8 option and standard 3.5-litre V6 for a stronger yet more fuel efficient 4.0-litre six cylinder that now powers all 4Runners. It delivers 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, up 34 horsepower and 12 pound-feet over the previous V6 and 10 horsepower over the available V8, while matching its 5,000-pound towing capacity. This is mated to a five-speed automatic with lock-up torque converter and transmission cooler. But, there’s more to off-road ability than a capable powertrain and Toyota has equipped this vehicle — more or less depending on model — for the demands of the trail. Standard on every 4Runner, beginning with the base SR5 (MSRP $37,990), are part-time 4WD, vehicle-stability control (VSC), active-traction control (A-TRAC), downhill-assist control (DAC), hill-start assist control (HAC), automatic disconnecting differential and protector plates for the gas tank and transfer case. Suspension is double wishbone up front and four-link in rear (both with stabilizer bar) and you get a whopping 9.6 inches of ground clearance. But, for serious bush bashing, opt for the Trail Edition. This involves a hefty bump of $7,625 and, for it, you get some useful tech that includes crawl control (a kind of cruise control for off-roading), multi-terrain select and

the kinetic dynamic suspension system (KDSS). Crawl Control negates any need for DAC. With crawl control, you can dial in one of five speeds from 1.5 to five km/h, which are held regardless of terrain. All you do is steer while the system looks after throttle and braking. Multi-terrain select provides settings that deliver an appropriate level of wheel slip for a particular terrain. On loose surfaces like mud or sand, the system allows for more wheelspin, while on bumpy moguls or solid rock, it provides more traction and limits spin. With the KDSS, both front and rear stabilizer bars are operational while on-road, and can be automatically disconnected in severe off-road situations. This allows for the full reach of the suspension when going through deep ruts and over rocks and logs — when you need maximum tire contact. I’ve driven the Trail Edition and found it on par with some of the best off-road vehicles in its class. My recent tester — the seven-passenger Limited — doesn’t get the above-mentioned goodies, but with its fulltime 4WD system, limited-slip centre differential, steel skid plates and other standard technologies, it is no slouch off the grid. To be sure, this $49,885 vehicle ($49,085 for the five-passenger model) may see little abuse initially, but a Toyota rep once reminded me off-roading may not be typically done with a brand-new 4Runner but that’s often where it ends up a few years out of the showroom.

4Runner remains a well-dressed ride XFrom B5

In the meantime, I found the Limited easy to live with in the urban jungle. Like all SUVs, it sits high for a commanding view of the road, and its reasonable turning circle, light steering and strong acceleration made it a pleasurable daily driver. But, if you think this sport utility provides the demure ride and hushed cabin common to many soft roaders, think again. The 4Runner is a beast — and I say this in praise. The roar of its V6 powertrain, the sound of its big tires pawing at the asphalt and the mild bellow of exhaust all remind you that you’re driving a truck — not the family taxi. And, the suspension, although forgiving enough, isn’t as

smooth as what you would expect from its Lexus siblings. In snow and sloppy weather, the 4Runner is extremely surefooted, with its threemode switch set on 4WD high-free (front/ rear power split dependent on weather and traction) or, better yet, on 4WD high-locked (power split equally between front and rear axles). The 4WD-low setting is for slow speed manoeuvres, such as on the trail or when you’re stuck. Inside, the 4Runner is as well-dressed as any SUV in its class and, despite the abundance of hard plastic, there’s still a nice mix of textures and materials, with soft-touch in the doors and other areas. The instrument panel and centre console include big but-

tons, large knobs and easy-to-read displays — ideal for gloved hands, and for aging boomers. There’s loads of knee room in the second row, but precious little in the third if you opt for the sevenseater. There are some SUVs, like the Honda Pilot, which can seat full-size adults — the 4Runner is not one of them. This $800 option, however, will work for kids who don’t mind scrambling into small spaces. The 4Runner may not be the ideal ride for those who never venture off the pavement but, for those who do, it blends an abundance of creature comforts with a level of go-anywhere offroad prowess that’s hard to find in its segment.

New-generation Santa Fe named safest in class The Hyundai newgeneration Santa Fe has been named as the safest car in its class assessed by Euro NCAP during 2012. Its scores across all test categories were best in class, making it one of the safest vehicles ever tested by the independent vehicle assessment organization and the best in the Large Off-Road 4x4 segmen, ahead of the MercedesBenz M-Class and Range Rover. Of the 36 vehicles tested during 2012, the eight top performers in their segments have been recommended by Euro NCAP for

their leading levels of safety across a range of assessments. In the adult occupant category, the Santa Fe scored 96 per cent, with maximum points in the side barrier test. In the child-occupant category, the D-segment SUV received a score of 89 per cent and featureslike electronic stability control contributed to the car’s score of 86 per cent in the safety assist category. In a further demonstration of Hyundai’s commitment to safety, the Santa Fe is the brand’s first car to be equipped with an active bonnet.

This activates if a pedestrian is hit, reducing impact forces and reducing the risk of serious injury. The result of this is a pedestrian-safety score of 71 per cent, making tje car stand out among its rivals in this category with the nearest high score being 63 per cent.

Top 10 mistakes that do most damage When it comes to today’s high-tech cars and trucks, most drivers understand following a scheduled maintenance program almost always costs less than paying for expensive repair surprises down the road. But, which mistakes, bad decisions and missed maintenance items do the most damage to your vehicles? In a U.S. survey, certified master technicians with more than 840 years of combined experience repairing cars identified the Top 10 maintenance mistakes car owners make: 1. Putting off recommended / scheduled maintenance. 2. Ignoring the “check engine” light. 3. Not changing the oil or not having it changed on time. 4. Not checking tire pressure. 5. Neglecting coolant, brake, transmission and other fluid services. 6. Continuing to drive when the vehicle is overheating. 7. Not changing fuel and air filters. 8. Having unqualified shops service your vehicle. 9. Using generic aftermarket parts instead of original equipment manufacturer-quality parts. 10. Trying to service your own vehicle. Not changing your oil was listed by technicians as by far the single most-damaging maintenance item customers neglect that they wish they could change. Dirty oil ruins today’s high-tech engines. Camshaft actuators can freeze when restricted by dirty oil and a faulty camshaft actuator can in turn cause the “check engine” light to illuminate, resulting in engine failure if ignored for too long. Simply following the factory-recommended schedule helps vehicle owners avoid this problem, along with potentially hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in extra repair costs. Ignoring the “check engine” light is another example of how putting off repairs on a small problem can escalate to an expensive repair.

TRU MARKET.ca A second-generation upgrade allowed for a North American version and, rather than have it compete with its new Escape lineup, Ford designated the C-MAX as a hybrid-only product for the U.S. and Canada, aiming it squarely at Toyota’s stable of Prius models. It is usually compared most closely to the similar-sized Prius V. The 2013 C-MAX Hybrid lineup is Ford’s first dedicated solely to hybrid technology. The C-MAX Hybrid harnesses the same mix of gasoline engine power and the torque of a battery-driven electric motor as its Fusion hybrid cousin. A 2.0-litre Atkinsoncycle four-cylinder engine makes 141 horsepower at 6,000 r.p.m. and 129 pound-

Engine: 2.0-litre 141 horsepower DOHC Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine (141 horsepower, 129 pound-feet) combined with 88kW electric motor (118 horsepower, 117 pound-feet) for combined 188 horsepower.

feet of torque at 4,000 r.p.m. and is one of the most-advanced and fuel-efficient non-turbocharged four-cylinder powertrains ever offered by Ford. An 88kW electric motor blends its power into the mix via a CVT transmission for an accumulated net power rating of 188 horsepower. The electric motor gets its juice from a 1.4 kWh lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery pack that is nearly 30 per cent smaller and 50 percent lighter than the nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries used in earlier hybrid vehicles. Ford’s next-generation powersplit controller divides the chores, allowing the electric motor and gasolinepowered engine to work together or separately.

Under light load conditions, the car can drive in EV (electric only) mode at faster speeds than any other hybrid. That EV range usually lasts for only a few kilometres before the battery needs to be recharged by the gasoline-engine. Regenerative braking also re-captures more than 95 per cent of the braking energy that would normally be lost. The usual hybrid traits of automatic engine shut-off on deceleration and stopping can make city driving even more economical than highway runs. With hundreds of patents on what it clearly feels is a superior technology, Ford execs have not exactly been

shrinking violets when it came to predicting fuel-efficient supremacy over Toyota’s best efforts. Transport Canada rated the C-MAX at 4.0/4.1L/100km (city/ hwy). But, in the U.S., even the EPA’s lessoptimistic results of 5.0L/100km have been challenged by Consumer Reports and other testing publications. It’s one thing to run bench tests in a lab, quite another to put up with urban traffic, changing temperatures and variable road conditions, not to mention quasi-legal highway speeds of between 100-120 km/h.

O, FINISHED WITH THE FANCY SCHMANCY CARS?” A friend made the comment after spotting the familiar Ford badge in my parking spot instead of the upscale logos of the Teutonic testers that had recently been parked there. “Oh, it’s fancy enough,” I replied. Maybe not as headscratchingly complex as the over-engineered German vehicles I had just finished with but the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid, despite its diminutive dimensions and plain-Jane wrappings, has been loaded with enough electronics and technology to make things interesting indeed. The C-MAX’s origins are simple enough. It was a Eurodesigned five-passenger, front-wheel-drive vehicle, powered by a choice of small gasoline or diesel engines and designed for a variety of international markets.

The SmartGauge with EcoGuide system uses a cluster to the left of the single gauge speedo to display fuel economy and a brake coach to hint at ways of improving your regenerative braking style. A cluster to the right shows Ford’s

seating, plenty of headroom and a spacious feel to the cabin. It provides 705 litres (24.9 cubic feet) of cargo space behind the second row, expanding to 1,538 litres (54.3 cubic feet) with the 60/40 rear seat folded flat. Up front, there is delight in the details of a well-constructed and sophisticated instrument layout.

My real-world results were less dramatic, coming in at 7.1L/100km (comb). The powertrain package won’t disappoint when it comes to performance. Although I drove moderately for the most part, the combined powertrain has more than enough oomph for on-ramps and passing manoeuvres.

Other available C-MAX Hybrid technologies include pushbutton start, active park assist, an upgraded AM/FM/CD/MP3 Sony audio system, a voiceactivated navigation system and a kind of funny but innovative hands-free liftgate that opens when your arms are full of groceries and you make a “gentle kicking motion� under the rear bumper. All these technologies are bundled in a

A step up the trim ladder to the C-MAX Hybrid SEL ($30,199) adds more goodies that can be supplemented with stand-alone options or packages. I didn’t want to confuse the issue, but a plug-in model — the C-MAX Energi

well-finished package that offers a surprising amount of versatile space and sophistication. The C-MAX Hybrid handles itself well. It has a wider turning circle than expected from a Euroinspired design but the overall ride is pleasingly smooth and tautly controlled.

DREW RHODES S

John’s interest in ham radio began in childhood and persisted to the present day. He was very proud of “checking into the net” almost every night for the past 49 years. He was thrilled to become a member of the Kamloops Amateur Radio Club. Our family has been blessed for several years with the caring and daily support for our father and husband from Bonnie Jesten and Lan Phung. Appreciation is also extended to Heather Murdoch for special outings and friendship. We also wish to thank High Country care givers, especially, Judy, Lynn, Chris, Jamie and Michelle. All have contributed so positively to Dad’s quality of life. A quiet family gathering will celebrate John’s accomplishments, humour and devotion to his family over the past century.

One night a man had a dream, He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two set of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to followed you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.” The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.” Margaret Fishback Powers
