Judge: Blowing in ‘warning’ range not enough to park drivers By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

A Kamloops judge has overturned a driving prohibition handed down a year ago after a driver blew a “warn” under B.C.’s immediate roadside-prohibition legislation. “There is no presumption that a driver’s ability to drive is affected by alcohol solely on the basis of a ‘warn’ reading,” B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley said in a written decision. Lee Michael Wilson of Kamloops was handed a driving ban after being stopped by police in Coombs on Vancouver Island last September. Blowing a ‘warn’ on a roadside screening device indicates a level of intoxication between 0.05 and 0.08. New legislation was introduced in B.C. almost three years ago allowing police, through the provincial superintendent of motor vehicles, to immediately prohibit drivers who blow a ‘warn’ reading. Wilson fought the prohibition on the grounds his ability to drive was not affected by alcohol. According to the Mountie who administered the test, Wilson showed no physical signs of intoxication other than an odour of liquor on his breath. “A plain reading of the legislation requires more than just a ‘warn’ reading,” Dley said in his decision. “Unless Mr. Wilson’s ability to drive was affected by alcohol, the peace officer had no basis upon which to issue the notice.” Defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen, who represented Wilson, said the decision — and other similar decisions in recent months — will likely force the province to amend the controversial legislation or police to change the way they hand out prohibitions. “It’s going to have huge short-term ramifications,” he said. “They’re going to have to have something else, like a flushed face or slurred words. Just because you blow a ‘warn’ or a fail it doesn’t mean you’re impaired.” Sam MacLeod, B.C.’s superintendent of motor vehicles, issued a statement on the decision, stating government lawyers are reviewing the file to determine whether an appeal “would be appropriate or warranted.” MacLeod said there will be no change in the meantime to the practice of police doling out immediate prohibitions.

Two Kamloops families are without homes after a series of explosions shook a North Shore neighbourhood on Tuesday, Sept. 10, before fire engulfed a duplex. Ray Brown said he was working in the driveway of his home in the 300-block of Alexander Avenue over the lunch hour when he heard a loud bang come from his garage. “I see smoke and I grab a garden hose,” Brown told KTW. “Then it [another explosion] blew me back.” Within minutes, the fire had spread from Brown’s garage to his home. Kamloops Fire Rescue crews arrived on scene and doused the blaze, but the damage had been done.

City tax break sought By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

ESSICA Vliengenthart acknowledges she never thought of herself as a lawyer. Even after the accident that left her with broken ribs, crushed vertebrae, a severed spinal cord and facing life in a wheelchair, law wasn’t on her radar. Her path to recovery involved lawyers for a while, she says while sitting behind a table at Riverside Park, but the legal system didn’t call out to her. So, what brings her to the park on a sunny September day to dole out free legal advice? Frustration with the lack of funding for legal aid, for the simple reality that many who come to her for legal advice have no idea the costs involved and for the reality that “might makes right.” She’d change it if she could, Vliengenthart says, “and if I could do this every lunch hour, I would.” “This” is an annual event sponsored by Access ProBono, a B.C. organization that works to promote and provide quality free legal services for people and non-profits with limited funds. The first person to come speak with her about his legal situation is Reo Rocheleau,

a senior reliant on a scooter to get around town. He’s unhappy with ICBC, from which he has heard nothing since he was struck by a car downtown in early summer as he was riding along on the sidewalk. His scooter’s front end was hit and the steering and front

wheels were damaged. Rocheleau tells Vliengenthart he called ICBC a few days after the incident because, although he wasn’t physically hurt, “I was just bloody scared by it” and needed time to be able to think clearly to make the call. He tells the lawyer from Fulton and

Company an adjuster told him to take the vehicle to Medichair Kamloops for an estimate on repairs and have it sent to her. Rocheleau did that. “And I haven’t heard back from her since.” He wants advice on what to do next, something Vliengenthart explains to him in step-

by-step directions. The senior heads off — after regaling Vliengenthart with a story about the origins of his first name — with a promise to “make the phone call now. I’ll get on it.” Vliengenthart agrees she may have more empathy than a lot of lawyers with stories

like the one Rocheleau has, simply because of her own experience with the world of insurance, legalities and the frustration of wanting answers faster than the system can provide them. That’s another reason why she wanted to take part in the event, she says. Vliengenthart has experienced some of the frustrations others encounter. Rocheleau was one of many to take part in the event, which ran from mind-morning to mid-afternoon on Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the Rotary Bandshell. Priyan Samarakoone, program manager with Access ProBono, says there had been a slow but steady stream — “nowhere near as busy as in Vancouver” — of people with legal issues, ranging from civil to family to criminal. The clinics were held in New Westminster, Vancouver, Surrey and Victoria, in addition to Kamloops.

After getting a lastminute reduction last year, Kamloops’ heavyindustrial players are headed back to city council to continue their quest to pay a smaller share of the city’s taxes. Representatives from Domtar, Lafarge, Arclin and Tolko wrote to council, asking to make a presentation at its annual budget workshop in the fall. The companies want to see the portion of the city tax base they are asked to cover come down from eight per cent, or about $81 per $1,000 of assessed value. Following a presentation to council just before it set the 2013 tax rate, Domtar’s strategic planning manager, Bill Adams, said he wants to eventually see heavy industry paying about $40 per $1,000 assessed. Council agreed to knock about $10 off the rate for 2013, adding an average of $7.50 to residential tax bills, and suggested there will be a greater shift to come over the next few years. The companies say that because the number of heavy industries operating in the city remains unchanged while the number of residences and businesses keeps growing, they are subsidizing the growth of other ratepayer classes. Councillors agreed to invite the companies to come to city council as a delegation, to ensure the presentation would be part of the public record.

Five of the top mountain-bike racers in the country came to town for the two-day bike camp, geared to young men whose lives have been impacted by substance abuse. Phoenix Centre executive director Sian Lewis said the goal of the event was to raise enough money to give the participants not only two days of fun and education, but new bikes and riding gear so they can continue to enjoy the skills they learn.

LOCAL NEWS Merle Peter Michels was charged following a September 2012 accident on Fortune Drive in North Kamloops that seriously injured pedestrian Chloe Demers. Michels returns to court on Monday, Sept. 16, for sentencing. KTW file photo

Sentencing next for accused An elderly Kamloops who has pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention after running into a pedestrian while behind the wheel of his vehicle on Tranquille Road in 2012 is expected to learn his fate next week. Merle Peter Michels is slated to return to Kamloops provincial court for sentencing on Monday, Sept. 16. The 85-year-old was charged after he ran a red light at the intersection and hit Chloe Jasmine Demers — also known as Chloe Ardiles — on Sept. 9, 2012, as she crossed Tranquille Road at Leigh Road in a crosswalk area. Her injuries were life-threaten-

ing and she spent several weeks in a medically induced coma. Demers’ father, Christian Ardiles, has filed a lawsuit on her behalf seeking an unspecified amount of damages for loss of income, loss of earning capacity, future care costs and general damages. In the suit, Ardiles states his daughter suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, a broken tibia and fibula, multiple lacerations, abrasions and bruises to her entire body, a blown pupil and an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury to her left knee. Michels has filed a response disputing Ardiles’ claims, stating Demers did not pay atten-

tion, did not take proper care to avoid an accident, did not move in time to avoid an accident, walked into the path of the vehicle “so close it is impracticable for the driver to yield the right of way,” failed to yield the right of way to the vehicle, did not follow traffic-control signals at the intersection and entered the roadway when the word “wait,” the words “don’t wait” or an outline of a raised hand were being shown on the traffic signal. Michels’ response also alleges Demers impaired her ability to hear traffic by wearing headphones or ear bugs and alleges Demers “has failed to follow medical advice in respect to treatment or exercise.”

Now you see them. Soon you won’t. The 2013 new and demonstrator vehicles are priced to sell. So hurry in today.

LOCAL NEWS This 18-foot Campion Runabout speedboat landed inside this houseboat in Magna Bay on July 3, 2010. The crash killed houseboat owner Kenneth Brown of Chase. Michael Reinbrecht of Celista faces two charges and will stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court in January.

ABERDEEN MALL 250-374-6611

CATCH ALL THE SAVINGS

Fatal speedboat crash trial delayed The trial of a man charged in connection to a July 2010 fatal boat crash has been pushed back to January 2014. The trial date for Leon Michael Reinbrecht, charged with criminal negligence causing death and criminal negligence causing bodily harm, was initially scheduled to begin this week in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops. It is now confirmed to start on

Jan. 6, 2014, and court time has been set aside for a five-week trial. Reinbrecht, a Celista resident in his early 50s, was allegedly the driver of a speedboat that collided head-on with a houseboat in Shuswap Lake’s Magna Bay on the 2010 Canada Day weekend, leaving the 18-foot Campion Runabout embedded inside the houseboat’s cabin. The crash occurred at about 11:20 p.m. on July 3, 2010, as

boats were leaving the bay following the annual Canada Day weekend fireworks display. Killed in the crash was the houseboat’s owner and driver, 53-year-old Kenneth William (Kenny) Brown of Chase. Thirteen people were aboard the houseboat and three people were on the speedboat. Eight people were treated and released from Royal Inland Hospital.

GRAND RE-OPENING

Alleged cat killer faces charges in March A Kamloops man accused of killing his cat in a manner described as “horrific” by one investigator will stand trial next year. Steven Seidel is facing one count each of causing unnecessary pain/suffering to an animal and causing an animal to continue to be in distress. Acting on a tip, BCSPCA investigators searched a dumpster outside a North Kamloops apartment building in March. Inside, they found the body of Seidel’s cat, Oreo, who investigators allege was strangled. Seidel’s trial, in Kamloops provincial court, is slated to begin on March 18, 2014.

From YouTube video to courtroom A Kamloops man facing criminal charges after posting to YouTube video of an altercation aboard a Kamloops bus will return to court on Tuesday, Nov. 26. Bradley Smith is facing one count each of mischief and assault.

Last December, the 35-year-old recorded video of an altercation with a city bus driver. The dispute was apparently over a missed stop. On YouTube, Smith described the incident as a “kidnapping.” The bus driver was cleared of any significant wrongdoing after an internal investigation by his management. Mounties looked into Smith’s actions in the incident, and he was charged less than two months later. The trial in Kamloops provincial court began in August. It is slated to run for two days in November.

Trial date confirmed for alleged shooter The man accused of injuring a woman after firing a shot through a floor of a Brocklehurst house during an altercation will stand trial on Oct. 7. Trevor Michael Wilvers is facing a number of firearms-related charges stemming from a June 4 incident in which a young mother was shot in the arm after a stray bullet entered her residence.

NDP needs to look to the past to secure its future

L

IVE LONG ENOUGH and you can see history repeated again — and again and again. So it is with the B.C. NDP, which has gone public with the mostrecent fracture, this one manifesting itself as Forward BC NDP. I’m old enough to remember Mel Watkins and Jim and Robert Laxer, the triumvirate that created the Waffle — a splinter group of the federal NDP that drew its name, if you believe urban legend, from a statement by then-MP Ed Broadbent, who spoke about people in his party “waffling to the left and right.” The goal was to push the party, then under the leadership of David Lewis, further to the left and away from its over-dependence on the labour movement for support, money — and policies. The NDP itself was created through party splinters, a history that began with the Territorial Grain Growers Association in Saskatchewan and went through many permutations to eventually become the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation and, under Tommy Douglas, the NDP. While dissatisfaction and ad-hoc groups within political parties isn’t unique to the left side of the spectrum, this latest incarnation in B.C. will be fascinating to watch. Already, if he followed his plans, Adrian Dix has told his caucus whether he wants to remain as leader. The rest of us are supposed to learn this sometime next week. I’m betting Dix has already seen a document that has been making the rounds, a one-pager with the blunt title

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL “How to Fix the B.C. NDP in Three Easy Steps.” A copy of it landed on my desk earlier this week and, while it identifies Dix as one of the problems to be addressed — a fact anyone who supports the party likely already realizes given how Dix lost the election that should have been a cakewalk for his party — it points the finger at two others. Fundamentally, the document notes, the party is controlled by the leader, the party president (Moe Sihota) and its provincial secretary (Jan O’Brien), yet another triumvirate that oversees hiring, firing, policy development and all those details that create the foundation upon which decisions are made. The secretary is hired by the provincial executive, which is controlled by the president. The president is elected at conventions — the next one for the NDP is in November, so the timing of the Forward group’s introduction is likely due to someone with a close eye on the calendar. This new splinter group has the obvious goals: Overthrow the execu-

tive, modernize the party’s technology, invest in staffing and come up with a platform that appeals to voters, all while not forcing out the veterans who have always been there, true believers who are used to defeat. All good intentions, but I think the biggest mistake this group is making comes in its assertion nostalgia no longer plays a role. If anything, it should be the driving force if the party is to redesign itself — the secret to success is not to ignore the past, but to completely embrace it. Go back to the goal of Watkins and the Laxers. Be the truly identifiable left-wing — dare I say socialist? — party and forget about trying to create some sort of haphazard coalition to get elected. Quit worrying about pollsters and positioning and talk about things that matter to real people. Stop shaping the message and reworking it into perfect sound bites and quotes. Draw your inspiration from the past, from Douglas, who dared to stand up and say Canadians deserve universal health care and who stared Pierre Trudeau in the eye and voted against the War Measures Act. Find people who can do this and then let them do it. Take the controls off them and let them speak in a way I suspect Dix wanted to during the past campaign, but was told doing so would not get him elected. Stand out from the others and give voters a true choice. Or, keep losing. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumbler.com

If you are a minority government with a goal of removing your province from the country and you want to avoid talking about your bad economic record — well, it must be time to pick on “the ethnics.” It’s hard to come to any other conclusion about the motivation behind the xenophobic Charter of Quebec Values, unveiled this weekby the minority Parti Quebecois government in Quebec. The term “the ethnics” was used by former PQ premier Jacques Parizeau when the province came very close to approving separation in 1995. A 50.6 per cent margin approved staying in Canada. Parzeau blamed “money and the ethnic vote” for the narrow loss. His successors haven’t forgotten. The Quebec charter is a thinlydisguised attack on non-Caucasian, non-“pure laine” Quebecois. These include those not from a Catholic background, those with a different skin colour, those who practise a religion other than Christianity (with a special aim at Jews and Muslims) and those who somehow look different, such as wearing a head covering or a symbol of their religion. Ever since news of such a charter was leaked, likely by the PQ, there has been a lot of reaction. Much of it has come from outside Quebec, which suits the PQ agenda perfectly, as it can then claim that Quebec is “different” from the rest of Canada. However, it is heartening to see strong reaction from the federal government and the two federal party leaders who represent Quebec seats — Thomas Mulcair of the NDP and Justin Trudeau of the Liberals. Mulcair, in particular, has something to lose as his large Quebec caucus includes some soft PQ supporters — and his party gained much of the “nationalist” vote in the 2011 federal election, when it won 59 Quebec seats. Quebeckers should think back to when longtime premier Maurice Duplessis targeted Jehovah’s Witnesses 70 years ago. This attempt to ban religious symbols is a similar paranoid attempt to exploit differences for political gain. Most Quebeckers are fair-minded people. Hopefully they will see political trickery for what it is, and reject an attack on their neighbours. — Langley Times

Editor: The so-called information meetings held by KGHM Ajax this week did more harm than good. As far as inspiring trust in the study process, they failed to do anything other than raise my concerns regarding public health and safety. The blasting expert was unaware blasting would take place in close proximity to Jacko Lake. When asked about the effect of blasting on fish, the response was he hadn’t seen any fish floating upside down after his work in the Panama Canal. He was unaware a major pipeline virtually wraps around part of the perimeter of the open pit where blasting will occur. He was likewise unaware of the close proximity of the east waste rock facility to the open pit, so he could not comment on the dangers posed by blasting to this structure. Then there were the contradictions. Last year, Ajax indicated most of the 14.8-billion litres of water used annually by the mine would be used for dust control and that much of the processing water would be recycled. This week, a KGHM spokesman indicated most of the water would be used in the operational aspects of the mine and downplayed the use of water for dust control (not a comforting thought for those concerned about toxic mine dust). When we consider Ajax will be using what amounts to four times the volume of water that would normally be present in our semi-arid soil (and we already have slides in that part of the city), the question of where the water goes should not be a point of confusion for the company. What did come through loud and clear was the lack of protection the public can expect from government. For example, the blasting expert referred to the absence of any federal or provincial government regulations to govern blasting activities. Then there is the federal policy that allows project approval as long as the pollution it creates does not exceed baseline levels by more than 20 per cent. This means if our air quality, for example, is at the high end of safe limits, we could still see projects approved here as long as the increased pollution is in the 20 per cent allowable addition. When is enough, enough? Diane Kerr Kamloops

old sanitarium site, as opposed to the “Tranquille Farm” sign just past the golf course. The project manager has gone through the city to request permission to post signs, but has been turned down unless they are on the Tranquille property. The corn maze that was so well received last year is farther down the road, past the farm right after the golf course. So, it is well worth the drive to go the extra mile(s) past Kamloops Golf and Country Club. The corn maze is scheduled to open in mid-September.

Tranquille On The Lake is a wonderful place to spend time during the weekend. You can buy organic products; check out plans for future development; have a picnic; take a historic tour; listen to music; play a game of Scrabble on the giant outdoor board; visit the ecological reserve; go for a bike ride; and take a tour of the underground tunnels. You can check their website at tranquille.ca for information on special events. I urge all to support this amazing venture. Helen Nybo Kamloops

Council rejects new recycling plan By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

To hear the managerial director for Multi Material B.C. tell it, the City of Kamloops just walked away from $1.5-million in funding for its curbside-recycling programs. But, when city councillors voted nearunanimously this week (save for Pat Wallace) to opt out of MMBC’s Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship Plan, the feeling was they had stared down a blackmailer. “I feel like we’re being held at gunpoint,” Tina Lange said at one point during council airing of frustrations over the recycling agreement. In 2012, the B.C. government decided to make manufacturers of printed paper and packaging responsible for getting their recyclable products out of landfills, with an implementation deadline in 2014. In return, the paper producers formed Multi Material B.C., which created a plan to provide recycling pickup services across the province. For communities like Kamloops that already have recycling programs, MMBC has a different offer: The city can become a contractor for the organization, picking up recycling in exchange for a payment of about $32 to $36 per household. But, even as she recommended council take the offer, environmental services manager Jen Fretz said the cash came with a lot of question marks. The location of the transfer station the

A

city would truck the materials to could be up to 60 kilometres from the city and Fretz said it is not clear what kind of fines MMBC would levy against the city if it picked up loads of recycling containing contaminates — which, under MMBC guidelines, would include glass containers the city encourages households to recycle in their carts. Because MMBC isn’t picking up glass containers and soft plastics such as cling film, Fretz said the city would have to set up and staff new recycling depots as well, less than a year after it phased out some of its old drop-off points because of the success of the curbside program. “We don’t even know the costs to be able to do a financial analysis,” Fretz said. “That’s a real issue for us. Even as we speak, the past few days there’s been details coming out. It’s been really hard for municipalities to proceed on this.” Few councillors were eager to embrace the MMBC agreement. Ken Christian said the new system would disrupt the city’s program and didn’t like that MMBC had only given the city until Sept. 16 to make up its mind. “The potential to upset that apple cart on a six-day turnaround is very unnerving to me,” he said. “And I hate being sort of blackmailed into it.” Council were initially told by staff that if they didn’t agree to work with MMBC, the organization would come in and run its own recycling service regardless of what the city was doing.

However, Arjun Singh said he’d spoken to the head of MMBC the day before the meeting and was told the organization would stay out of the community entirely. Allen Langdon, managing director for MMBC confirmed as much to KTW the morning after council’s decision. The organization will only set up shop in the community if multi-family developments request its services. Even then, it will leave door-to-door recycling to the city. Landgon said he finds the rejection “confusing.” “We’ve had lots of good discussion with staff. From my understanding staff recommended it,” he said. “And, other than a last-minute conversation with a councillor, no one on Kamloops city council had ever reached out to us to express concerns. And we’ve been pretty open with communities that, if they had any questions, we’d be happy to come down and meet with them.” Langdon said some of the city’s concerns have been answered in more detail. On fines, for example, MMBC will cap penalties for contractors at $120,000. In cases where contamination is an issue, Langdon said MMBC will first work with communities to see what they can do to bring rates down. “The intent here is not to go around levelling fines against municipalities,” he said. “What it is, is to include it in the contract so the collector is aware this is important to us.”

Yet another reason (as if you need one) to avoid alleys at 3 a.m. Kamloops RCMP are looking for a native male who robbed and sprayed pepper at two men in a downtown alley in the wee hours of Wednesday, Sept. 11. The men, ages 23 and 27, told police they were in an alley near Lansdowne Street at 3 a.m. when the third man approached, offered to sell them drugs and asked for money to buy food. When one of the men took out his wallet, he was sprayed in the face and the bandit also tried to spray the second man. The suspect grabbed the wallet and fled. The pair was taken to Royal Inland Hospital for treatment.

POLICE BEAT Police are looking for a native male standing about fivefoot 11. He was wearing a black shirt at the time of the robbery. Police checked the area after receiving the report but were unable to find the suspect. Anybody with information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-8283000.

Mayor Peter Milobar and three Kamloops city councillors are due to make their annual pilgrimage to the Union of B.C. Municipalities’ conference in Vancouver next week — and the issues they will focus on are familiar. Milobar said the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine will once again be on the agenda when he meets with Environment Minister Mary Polak and Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett. It will be the mayor’s second meeting with the pair in just over a month. Because the mine’s proponents had originally intended to file an application for environmental review just before the conference began, Milobar met with the ministers pre-emptively earlier this summer. “We’re just touching base and seeing if they have any further information around timelines and further changes,” Milobar said.

McCorkell said the department wants to offer eco-friendly burials at the site, which requires some reconfiguration work at the cemetery, but was advised by a consultant that the demand for green burials won’t ramp up for three to five years.

Councillors will also sit down with Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Coralee Oakes to continue lobbying to extend Kamloops’ boundaries to encompass New Gold’s New Afton Mine west of the city. While council hasn’t sent any major motions to UBCM for consideration this year, Milobar said he will be keeping his eye on a resolution calling on the province to modernize the Mineral Tenure Act. It asks the province to reform the act to take into account how future mines could affect tourism, forestry and farming in an area, and calls for more clout for First Nations and local governments near mining claims. It’s a resolution Kamloops council debated in July 2012, but chose not to back. At the time, Milobar called the motion “well meaning,” but said it was unlikely the province

City council sweeps issue on to MLA Stone Kamloops city council will ask the province to spend more time sweeping its highways, following a complaint about gravel on the Trans-Canada Highway. In a letter to council, Barnhartvale resident William Armstrong said gravel building up on the shoulders of the highway is dangerous to cyclists. Armstrong said that the highway is swept every 120 days, but that leaves plenty of time for gravel to accumulate and become a hazard before it’s removed. Coun. Nancy Bepple said she’s had the same problem on the highway. “For the entire summer, half the highway along where I cycle is covered in gravel and not touched,” she said, suggesting council send a letter to Minister of Transportation (and Kamloops-South Thompson MLA) Todd Stone about the issue. At the suggestion of Coun. Donovan Cavers, council will also send Armstrong a letter of thanks for pointing out the issue.

whether to continue the association. At the NSBIA’s last renewal vote in 2008, only 51 of 324 business properties opposed the NSBIA’s continuation.

NSBIA renewal? The North Shore Business Improvement Association (NSBIA) is headed into its five-year renewal process after a blessing from city council this week. New executive director Steven Puhallo said the NSBIA is seeking just over $750,000 in funding over a five-year term, from 2014 to 2018. The funds are raised through a levy of two per cent of the assessed value of light-industrial and commercial properties within the area, which stretches as far north as Ord Road and is bounded in the south by the South Thompson River. That amounts to more than $175,000 a year. To secure the renewal, the NSBIA will still need to hold a vote, in which member businesses will decide

A monthly market The North Shore’s farmers’ market will head back to Spirit Square next spring, but residents won’t see the same frequency as those on the south side of the river.

Puhallo told Kamloops city council the market will run monthly following its relaunch in April 2014. Puhallo said a monthly event will be easier to market effectively and will mean vendors get more money for their time. “We believe they can make just as much on a large, monthly event as they could from the trickle-down of a week-

ly event,” he said.

Fighting flooding For joggers and pedestrians in Riverside Park, it’s a familiar sight: The Rivers Trail, blocked off and underwater thanks to spring runoff. But, that could change as the city moves forward on a management plan for Riverside and Pioneer parks.

Parks planner Mike Doll said the oft-flooded trail was one of the major pet peeves cited during public consultation for the plan.

While the plan is still in the works, that could mean looking at diking the section of the trail under the rail tracks.

Mine blasts would mimic ‘distant thunder’

R

ESIDENTS living closest to the pit of the proposed Ajax mine in Kamloops would feel only slight vibrations and hear only “distant thunder” as a result of blasting at the copper and gold mine, according to a consultant for the project. “Looking at similar things I’ve done around the world, the vibration levels are going to be equivalent to maybe, let’s say, the phone rings in your home and you jump up and run towards it,” said Frank Chiappetta, an explosives-application engineer for Blasting Analysis International, who will advise the mine on how to conduct blasting at the site south of Aberdeen. Chiappetta was one of a half-dozen consultants for mine proponent KGHM Ajax who presented on his work at an open house on Monday, Sept. 9, at Thompson Rivers University. Other present-

ers walked a crowd of about 50 people through the modelling work they will do to predict effects of the mine on the air and water quality of Kamloops, as well as the noise and vibrations it will produce. The turnout was lower than expected. KGHM Ajax communications strategist Robert Koopmans told media before the event that about 100 people had registered for the Monday night session. While the approximately four-hour-long session focused on scientific processes rather than specific findings — many scientists who spoke with media said they are still measuring current conditions in Kamloops and have not begun modelling the mine’s effects on the city at all — Chiappetta provided some of the evening’s more definitive thoughts on Ajax’s effects. He also had some harsh words for a report prepared for the city by Golder

Associates that suggested blasting from the mine could break windows, traumatize pets and affect residents living up to 10 kilometres from the mine. “That was blatantly misleading,” he said. “I was surprised on this letter. It was just not up to their professional standards. “It was very inflammatory.” Overpressure from blasting can’t move fast enough to create a sonic boom, he said, which requires fasterthan-sound conditions. To create the air blast needed to break windows, he said, the mine would have to pack millions of kilograms of explosives into blast holes designed to hold no more than 620 kilograms. “It’s not possible,” he said. Blasting International is typically called in to consult on projects that are less than one kilometre from their neighbours, Chiappetta said, and often within

300 to 500 metres. He said Kamloops, which is about 1.5 kilometres from the site, has “a great buffer. You have a lot of flexibility.” “The blasting here in Kamloops is not a technical challenge.” Chaipetta said his company will recommend Ajax conduct blasts so they comply with safety levels set out by the United States Bureau of Mining. The bureau recommends blasts be conducted to produce vibrations that are too weak to damage drywall — the material in a home most susceptible to vibrational damage. He said the standards also take into account material fatigue from repeat blasting. “You can work out the point at which material in the home is going to experience fatigue,” he said. “It’s going to be in the order of about six to eight hundred years.” The Ajax sessions

Two views of the information sessions at TRU There was plenty of discussion of decibel levels and water flows at the first of four Ajax information sessions on Monday, Sept. 9. But, for Paula Pick, the most important question is still unanswered. “It’s all about scientific models with engineers,” Pick, who said she is concerned about the mine, told KTW halfway through the session. “You still can’t get a straight answer about what will the impacts be on the people of Aberdeen when you’ve got a mine going 24

hours a day.” KGHM Ajax representatives have stressed that their latest round of open houses on the proposed copper and gold mine were focused on the environmental-review process rather than effects of Ajax on the community. That left a number of audience questions on noise levels, impact on wildlife and the like only partly answered. While she knew what to expect, Pick said, for her it would take concrete findings to soothe her worries about the mine.

On the flip side, Jim Thomson — who supports the project — said he felt the session answered his questions, which focused on speculation about the mine he has heard in the community. “I was at one presentation put on by the homebuilders’ association where people were throwing out there that the rivers would dry up and the level of Kamloops Lake would drop down,” he said. “I read editorials in the paper — and some of this stuff gets traction and it makes no sense.”

KOKANEE COURT

Foreign-worker rules creating some confusion dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

As Cathy McLeod explains it, application of the foreignworkers processing fee to musicians simply makes sense. Bands from outside Canada that bring their tours to the country are taking work away from homegrown musicians. “We have lots of great talent,� the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo Conservative MP told KTW. She acknowledged the situation may seem confusing to the small-scale promoter — people like Ray Nyuli of Kamloops’ Entertainment Management — but that, in the end, it is good for the country. Nyuli, who tends to bring performers to small Kamloops venues, agreed the situation is confusing, but his perplexity stems more from not being able to understand why large-scale promoters are exempt from having to charge $275 per foreign worker — support staff as well as musicians — who comes

to the country. Members of the U.S.-based American Federal of Musicians are also exempt, as are any venues that do not have as their primary function the provision of music. The new rule, which came into effect at the end of July, caught promoters and venue owners by surprise. For Nyuli, it’s another layer of bureaucracy that makes his job difficult and leaves him reluctant to book foreign bands. And he’s angry that he has been affected by a law “designed to stop big companies from bringing in Chinese miners rather than hiring Canadians.� Paul Hinrichs, a promoter based in Penticton, has sent an email to other promoters and venue owners explaining the rules and, for him, it’s not “an attack on artists,� but a “clampdown on bars and restaurants charging covers for huge-name shows.� Hinrichs told KTW that, in the past, the temporary foreignworker fee was $150

per person with a cap of $450 as a one-time charge, no matter how long the tour might be, if it involved venues that didn’t have music as their main function. Now, with it applying to each venue and with no cap, Hinrichs said the fee “is definitely a deal-break for some small venues.� It’s possible to get an exemption, but it requires bars and restaurants to surrender that designation and focus solely on music. From there, a variety of steps exist to

get the exemption can be followed. McLeod said the new system removes the taxpayer subsidizing the cost of foreign workers entering the country, noting the original fee did not cover the federal government’s costs to administer the program. When asked how the government can consider the work comparable between a Canadian band and one from another country — given music and talent are unique skills and abil-

ities — the MP had one answer: It’s up to the promoter or venue owner to make a “business decision� on booking a Canadian band over an international one. Nyuli disagreed. “I can bring in a folk band from Ireland and people like that kind of music, but not 3,000 of them in Kamloops,� he said. “But, I might get 50 people in St. Andrews [on the Square] or 100 at the Pavilion [Theatre.] “With this, though, it isn’t worth it.�

Fire claimed life of dog X From A1

The Brown family’s half of the duplex was destroyed and the other half of the building suffered significant damage. It’s not yet known if any of the building will be salvageable. There was also minor damage caused to the property next door to the duplex. Brown’s wife and two kids — ages four and 10 months — were not home at the time, but the family’s four-year-old pit bull Caesar died in the fire. “He was a rescue and he only listened to my son,” Brown said. “He’s quite upset because his dog’s gone. “I told him. I said, ‘Caesar’s gone.’ I said, ‘Now he’s up in heaven with the other dog. So, if you see it raining yellow, that’s just Caesar marking his territory.’” In addition to the loss of their pet, Brown said his family is now also without all of their belongings. “We lost everything,” he said. “But, my only concern is my wife and kids. “Everything else is replaceable. I lost a lot of tools, but they’re all replaceable.” Brown suffered first-, second- and third-degree burns to his head and arms. The day after the fire, he sat heavily bandaged outside the charred remains of his home surrounded by friends and family. “Shit like this shows you who your real friends are,” he said. “But, I don’t want anybody’s pity. I’ve made it in this world on my own and I’ll do it again. I’ll rebuild and I’ll do it all again.” Brown said he was frustrated by some incorrect reports about the explosions and fire in the hours that followed, including one radio report he said referred to his home as “a meth lab.” He said reports of numerous 100-pound propane tanks blowing up were also incorrect. Kamloops Fire Rescue fire inspector Arlene Ball said the explosions could have been any number of items stored in Brown’s garage, including single-use propane cylinders, paint cans and other chemicals. “There were many chemicals in the garage, so lots of the evidence has been ruined,” she said. “Now, we’re looking for what was in the garage that could be an ignition source — electrical or heat sources — and fire patterns. “You eliminate the causes that you can and try to determine the cause of the fire.” Brown said his family is relying on friends and family until his insurance company gets involved.

MORTGAGE MATTERS Credit Score and Home Buying Part I Does living a debt-free lifestyle make you the best candidate for a mortgage? You manage your money well and you purchase only what you can pay cash for. You have no credit cards or loans of any kind! You must be what every lender dreams of when it comes to obtaining a mortgage, right? Well, not so fast… Let’s take a look at one of the key aspects of lending: your credit score. When applying for a mortgage, your credit score weighs heavily when it comes to the mortgage rates you will be offered, the lenders who will work with you or whether you will be denied in your search for a loan. In essence, it can make or break your mortgage application. By definition, a credit score is simply a measure of your proven habits of repaying debt. For that reason, you must repay something to have a positive score, like credit card payments, car payments and small bank loans to name a few. People who do not have or use credit cards and insist on paying cash for everything are often surprised when they are refused for a mortgage because they believe their habit of paying cash should reflect “good credit”. Credit scores are rated on a point system, ranging from 0 (no credit), to a maximum of 900 (perfect credit), with the general minimum credit needed for a mortgage sitting at around 600 points. A person who pays cash for all things will likely have a 0 credit score because they have zero history of repaying debt. So what does this mean to a first time homebuyer? Do your credit card repayment patterns reveal good things about you? As a rule of thumb, a person should use two credit cards regularly and pay them off each month to build a positive credit score. A repayment for a bill as little as $10 will build your score and produce a proven habit of repaying debt. There are two major credit score suppliers in Canada: Equifax and Transunion. Each has a credit education center for those who would like to do further reading: www.equifax.com/home/en ca • www.transunion.ca Equifax offers a free mailed copy of your credit report at www.equifax.com/contact_us/en_ca. Both these links are found under resources on my website www.mortgagebuilder.ca. Look for Mortgage Matters “Credit Score and Home Buying Part II” when I will examine several factors that lower credit score and boost credit score for those looking to maximize their score prior to a home purchase.

Want to help fire victims?Here’s how Ray Brown said he’s been made aware of at least one scammer looking to cash in on his family’s heartache. “There’s people that are going on Facebook saying they’re friends of the family,” he said. “They don’t even know our names, but they’re saying they’re collecting food, clothing, cash donations. They’re not legit.” But, Brown said, if anyone wishes to help the family get back on its feet — they are looking for food, children’s clothing, diapers, baby cereal, shoes and winter clothes — there are ways to do so. One way is to get in touch with Ed LaPierre of Ace Courier Services, who will be picking up items for donation on Sunday, Sept. 15. LaPierre’s phone number is 250-851-1131 and his email is edatace@shaw.ca. More information can also be found online on Facebook by searching Kamloops Barter Kings, Kamloops Buy and Sell or Random Acts of Kamloops and looking for posts by Sarah Wade or Vance Tyrrell. In addition, Brown’s neighbours, Tammy Durand and Willie Prokop, are accepting items for donation at their home, 369 Alexander Ave.

Mounties Taser man Jaipreet Singh Toor is charged with stabbing his father to death downtown

Accused in 2012 murder said he intends to plead guilty By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops man accused of murdering his father last year will return to court later this month — hopefully, this time, with a lawyer. Jaipreet Singh Toor’s second-degree murder trial in B.C. Supreme Court had been slated to begin on Sept. 23. That’s now the date he will be back in court to schedule another hearing after indicating this week that he would like to plead guilty. The problem is, Toor doesn’t have a lawyer — and B.C. Supreme Court Justice Hope Hyslop wasn’t comfortable taking his plea without representation. The 45-year-old was arrested on March 20, 2012, after allegedly stabbing to death his father, 79-year-old Harsewak Singh Toor, whose body was found outside the family home in Brocklehurst. After the stabbing, neighbours told KTW they believe Jaipreet Singh Toor suffers from mental-health issues, noting he often wandered the neighbourhood exhibiting strange behaviour. Toor has a long but recent criminal record, with at least 10 convictions.

GLADYS MARY (PEG) SCOTT April 1, 1916 – July 12, 2013 Peg passed peacefully at the Hamlets in Westsyde with her family comforting her for her final days. She was predeceased by Walter, her husband of 68 years in 2009. Also predeceased by brothers Dwight, Roy and sister Molly. Peg is survived by Robert (Dale) of 100 Mile House, Kathryn (Leslie) Ervin of West Kelowna and Jane (John) Kikkert of Okotoks , plus several grandchildren & great grandchildren. She is also survived by sister Mildred Reynolds of Port Alberni & and sister in-law Grace Caddell of Victoria. Peg was born in Wimbledon, England and immigrated to Canada as a toddler. Her early years were spent in Kingston, Ontario & Winnipeg, Manitoba, where her father was posted as a member of the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. After her mothers death in 1928, the children were cared for in an orphanage in Winnipeg. After the death of their father in early 1929, the siblings were adopted by three cousins in Victoria. Peg worked in the Saanich municipal office, and married Walter in 1941 in Victoria. Son Robert was born in 1944 prior to their moving to Kamloops in 1945. Daughter Kathryn was born in 1946 and daughter Jane in 1950, both in Kamloops Hospital. Peg was a matron at the Kamloops Correctional Gaol in the 1960’s. After Walter’s retirement in 1972, they relocated to Sorrento, then returned to Kamloops in 1991. They moved to Berwick on the Park in 2002, then to the Hamlets when it opened. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Hamlets for the fine care both Peg & Walter received over the years. In lieu of flowers donations in honour of Peg’s life may be made to the Alzheimer Society. You are invited to join a celebration of her life at the Hamlets at Westsyde, 3255 Overlander Dr, Kamloops, at 2pm Saturday, September 14, 2013.

In 2008, he pleaded guilty to impaired-driving charges in Kamloops provincial court and was ordered to pay a $1,200 fine and banned from driving for two years. In that instance, Toor was found by police lying face-down outside his vehicle near Kamloops Airport. He was too intoxicated to undergo a breathalyzer test and was held in custody overnight. In August 2009, Toor was sentenced to one day in jail and one year of probation after breaching court orders. He was also fined $50. Later the same month, Toor was sentenced to five days in jail and one year of probation after pleading guilty to one count of breach of recognizance. One week later, he was sentenced to nine days in jail after pleading guilty to a single count of breach of an undertaking. In January 2010, Toor was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 18 months of probation after breaching a previous probation order. Also in January 2010, he was convicted on one count of assault with a weapon and one count of breach of recognizance, with the charges dating back to the previous year. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Finally ... Peace for Nana Betty Isla Celia Hunt passed away peacefully Saturday morning, August 31, 2013, in her 95th year. She is survived by sons Noel (Linda), Barry (Linda), Keith and daughters Tannis (Doug), Melodie (Clem) and Lita,18 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 66 years, Guy and parents Napoleon and Josephine Bessette, as well as 3 brothers and 6 sisters. Betty was born March 4, 1919 in Lumby, the youngest child to pioneer lumberman Napoleon Bessette and his wife Josephine. Betty and Guy moved to Kamloops in 1943. Betty was often overheard saying her greatest joy in life was raising and spending quality time with her family. She was a devoted wife and loving mother and grandmother who was always supportive of various family endeavours. She was a wonderful homemaker who always made sure that visitors felt “at home”. She always made sure that family gatherings and especially Christmas celebrations were truly enjoyable and memorable. She and Guy also spent many enjoyable hours tending to their garden. A private family Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 11:00 am at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Kamloops, BC. Schoenings Funeral Home is in care of arrangements. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Hamlets for the exceptional care their mother received. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.

In March 2011, he pleaded guilty to one count of assault and was sentenced to 90 days in jail. He was also placed on a one-year probation term. Two months later, Toor was sentenced to 10 days in jail after pleading guilty to one count each of mischief under $5,000 and breach of probation. Someone with the name Jaipreet Toor operated a blog, snapcountready.wordpress.com, which appears to have been based in Kamloops. In a post dated April 11, 2009, the blogger talks about his apparent dealings with Kamloops RCMP. “I was forced to commit suicide three times because my circumstances were made such,” the post reads. “Now I feel there is divine intervention in my life a secure feeling at least I can blog about my situation before I get arrested again.” Other posts on the blog reference Osama bin Laden as the blogger’s “dad” and the blogger himself as “the dragon.” The same person also apparently operated a Twitter account, at twitter.com/jaytravolta. Tweets from the user, whose information states he lives in Kamloops, also reference bin Laden.

WILLARD ARTHUR NOURSE On September 8, 2013 Willard Nourse passed away at his residence in Kelowna at the age of 91 years. He was born April 22, 1922 In Stettler, Alberta. The family moved to Penticton in 1936, where he attended Penticton High School. After graduation he spent four years in the R.C.A.F. as a Flight Engineer from 1942 – 1946. He then started with North American Life in March 1946 as a representative in Penticton. In 1953, he was transferred to Ottawa as Assistance Manager, then to Brandon in 1955 as Manager, and New Westminster as Manager in 1956, a final move to Kamloops as Manager for the B.C. Interior in 1965. Willard was involved in many organizations: Junior Chamber of Commerce, Member of Kiwanis Club of Ottawa, Brandon and New Westminster, Board member of Stewarts, Shiloh United Church, New Westminster, member of the Kamloops Rotary since 1965, member and Past President of the Kamloops Underwriters Association, member of the Kamloops Elks Lodge, member of the Royal Canadian Legion in 1946 and a member of the R.C.A.F. Association since 1986. Willard enjoyed his time living at Rivershore estates and golfing with his regular foursome. Willard and Elsie moved to Kelowna in September 2006. He will be lovingly remembered by his companion Elsie, his daughter Kathryn (Doug) Mace of Campbell River, granddaughter Laurie (Jason) and great grandson Corie; his son Ron (Shirley) Nourse of Kamloops. A Celebration of Willard’s life will be held on Friday, September 13, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. in the Schoening Funeral Chapel, 513 Seymour Street. Schoenings Funeral Service 250-374-1454 www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Kamloops RCMP used a Taser on Wednesday, Sept. 11, to subdue a 23-yearold man acting aggressively downtown. Police were called at about 2 p.m. after being told the man had tried to rob a Royal Bank customer, then ran onto Victoria Street to bang on the windows of vehicles as they passed by. He eventually went to the Commodore lounge, where he threatened to use bear spray. Police used the Taser to take the man into custody and are continuing their investigation, talking with witnesses and gathering evidence, to decide what charges are possible.

NEVER QUIT When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill When funds are low and debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

   

Success is failure turned inside out – The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – It’s when things seem worst that You must not quit!

STORM SEASON

The Kamloops Storm are one day away from opening the 2013-2014 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season. Head coach Ed Patterson has his gaze fixed on a return to the final. Allen Douglas/KTW

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

E

D PATTERSON WANTS TO GET BACK TO THE BIG DANCE IN A HURRY. “Getting back to the final — that’s this team’s goal,” said Patterson, hired in July and entering his second term as the junior B Kamloops Storm’s head coach. “When you get there, it’s a matter of being smart and composed and getting the odd lucky bounce, but we need to get there first.” The Storm open the 20132014 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season against the Grizzlies in Revelstoke on Friday, Sept. 13. Kamloops, which was bounced in Round 1 of the playoffs last season, will host the Sicamous Eagles at McArthur Island Sports and Event Centre on Saturday, Sept. 14. Game time is 7 p.m.

Patterson, in his first stint behind the Storm’s bench, led the club to the KIJHL final in 2008 and 2009, losing on both occasions. The strength of this year’s edition of the team looks to be up front. “Everybody would love to have one more big defenceman in the lineup, but our forward group is about as deep as you can get as far has hard, big, skilled skating guys,” Patterson said. “I don’t like the term ‘buying in,’ but they’re starting to really figure out how to work and use their brains at the same time, rather than playing the run-andgun junior B style.” Expected to lead the crop of forwards are Brock Balson, 20, a River City product who had a stint with the Western Hockey League’s Kamloops Blazers; Bobby Kashuba, 18, also from Kamloops; Luke Gordon, 19, who played junior A hockey last season; Blake Culbert, a 21-year-old from Kelowna; Felix

Larouche, 18, another Kamloops native; Terrace product Austin Braid, 19; and Kamloopsian Max James, 16, who was returned to the Storm by the Tri-City Americans of the WHL. Culbert is expected to miss this weekend’s action due to injury. Kamloops lost depth on the blue line when hometown kid Cole McCaskill, 17, was called up to play junior A this season with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks of the B.C. Hockey League. The Storm will also be without Stefan Wood, 17, when the campaign gets underway this weekend. He is sidelined with a groin injury. On the back end, Spencer Schoech, a 20-year-old D-man from Dublin, Calif., Daniel Buchanan, 20, from Kamloops, and Jason Anderson, 17, a diminutive blue-liner from Langley, will be expected to carry the load. Goaltending is the Storm’s biggest question mark heading into their eighth season

in Kamloops. “I wasn’t sold on what we had last year,” Patterson said. “Two new guys have come to camp and really pushed Wade Moyls, the returning guy who’s trying to prove he belongs on the team.” Moyls, a 19-year-old from Kamloops, played in 11 games last season, posting a 3-6 record, one shutout, a 2.48 goals-against average and a .937 save percentage. The two backstops pushing him for the No. 1 job are Kyle Michalovsky, 17, from Kamloops, and Ben Giesbrecht, 16, from Aldergrove. “We have another young guy, Nolan Munden, that we thought wouldn’t be around this long, but he keeps pushing so hard that we have to keep giving him a chance,” Patterson said. “Right now, that’s the only spot we have to buckle down this week and make a decision on.” The Storm’s roster was sitting at 26 players on Wednesday, Sept. 11. It needs to be trimmed

to 23 by Friday. Joining Patterson behind the bench are assistants Brad Priestlay, Todd Rasmussen and Kyle Panasuk. “When the game’s on the line, I have to have the balls to make the final decision, but we try and make decisions as a staff,” Patterson said. “I want to grow as a head coach and I want the other guys to grow as assistant coaches. “We have to do that together.” Patterson lost his job when Domtar pulp mill shut down one of its pulp lines this spring. In addition to working the bench with the Storm, Patterson is employed with the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association, helping out with advertising and hockey camps. It’s all hockey all the time — and the former NHLer wouldn’t have it any other way. “I love it,” Patterson said. “It’s very much a dream job.” He’ll love it even more if the Storm are still on the ice late next spring.

Raiders return The Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders are opening the fall half of the B.C. Rugby Union (BCRU) season at Rayleigh Rugby Park on Saturday, Sept. 14. Kamloops will play United Rugby Club of Coquitlam, with the second-division men kicking off at 1 p.m. and the first-division men to follow at 2:30 p.m.

After much debate and discussion, the undermanned Raiders decided to enter teams in the Okanagan Spring Brewery first and second divisions, instead of opting to field one third-division squad. The female Raiders have a bye this week and will begin the defence of their provincial championship on Saturday, Sept. 21.

Kamloops will open the BCRU Lower Mainland Senior Women Tier 1 season with a match against Mudhens of Seattle. If interested in joining the club, call 250578-7097 Cole Greer (middle) and the Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders return to action on Saturday, Sept. 14, at Rayleigh Rugby Park. Allen Douglas/KTW

From liability to leader, McCarthy has changed By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Braden McCarthy’s transformation over the past three years has been something to behold, according to Dino Bernardo, the B.C. Football Conference (BCFC) team’s president. Bernardo said the 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive lineman has gone from being a (word that’s not publishable) to a leader and one of the team’s best players. “When I first started, I got on to the field and I’d make stupid decisions or I’d try to fight other players, just dumb decisions that didn’t help the team,” said McCarthy, a Valleyview secondary graduate, “I had a lot of people talk to me and I realized that there is going to be a big leadership problem, so I took it upon myself to change and to try and lead the team and do what I could to help us win.” The Broncos (1-4-1), having picked up their first victory of the season last weekend, are hosting the Westshore Rebels of Victoria (1-5) on Saturday, Sept. 14. Game time is 7 p.m. If selfish, immature play was McCarthy’s calling card in 2011, his first year in the league, he had gone a long way in eradicating that reputation by the end of the 2012 campaign, when he was named the Broncos’ most-inspirational player. Fiery by nature, reining himself in during heated situations is not always easy, but the penalty flags seem to be flying less often these days. “It was pretty tough at first but, eventually, it got pretty easy to just look at the guy and smile,” said McCarthy, who has a healthy appetite for quarterback sacks. The Broncos were the only team that showed interest in McCarthy after high

school and Canadian Interuniversity Sports (CIS) schools are not knocking down doors to sign him. McCarthy has enrolled at Thompson Rivers University for the winter semester in order to improve his high-school grades, aiming to better his chances of cracking the CIS ranks. If the sizeable lineman can get an education through football, he will be a prime example of that in which the Broncos pride themselves — giving local players who might otherwise have given up the game a chance to better themselves through the gridiron. In a perfect world, the Broncos would also be able to pride themselves in championships, but the team has never enjoyed a winning season. Kamloops head coach Duncan Olthuis took over three years ago, when McCarthy was a rookie. Both coach and player share the same desire to lead the Broncos to the post-season, but the losses continue to pile up and Kamloops’ playoff hopes are again hanging by a thread. Defeat does have an odd way of bringing a team together — Olthuis often asserts his love for his players through social media and they reciprocate — but No. 47 would rather bond over a playoff berth. “It’s pretty frustrating,” said McCarthy, who has two remaining years of BCFC eligibility. “All we can do is take the positives and keep improving. “I just want to bring a winning season to the hometown fans for the first time.”

Simpson credits a high school teacher, Mickey Maritino, for suggesting he join the Rangers. Throughout his military career, Simpson has earned recognition for many accomplishments. In 1988, he completed a tour in Cyprus, earning himself a Chief of Defence Commendation. In 1989, Simpson joined the Canadian Regular Forces as a combat engineer and deployed to Kuwait and Iraq under the title Sapper Simpson in 1991. During that time, he received a letter from another highschool teacher, Gordon Gore, with whom Simpson visited in Kamloops this summer. Gore also recalls the letter.

Wayde Simpson and his wife, Tracey, at a military event. The two have been together for 24 years.

Simpson now in charge of SAR tech training X From B4

In 1995, Simpson applied to search and rescue (SAR) tech training and earned his wings. During this time, he was awarded the Medal of Bravery for a helicopter SAR mission to a plane crash near Valemount, where he helped save the lives of three people. When asked to describe the experience, a very modest Simpson replied with a heartfelt “surreal.” In 2012, then-warrant officer Simpson was awarded the Order of Military Merit. His current role under his latest title, MWO, is chief warrant officer of the CF School of Search and Rescue in Comox Simpson said he enjoys his mentoring role at the school. On a daily basis, he takes care of the students and overseas instruction. Simpson has the final authority on whether a student passes or fails SAR tech training. Assessing his military career, he said the most rewarding part has been the missions undertaken and lives saved. “The standard to become a SAR tech is very challenging,” he said. “We’re in the background. “Most people don’t even know what a SAR tech is until they need one.” Simpson also credits his loving and supportive family, especially his wife, Tracey, who has been by his side for 24 years. For her part, Tracey said she’s lucky to have found her husband.

Temporary Exhibit at the Kamloops Museum THE WAR OF 1812 IN THE WEST - THE OREGON COUNTRY LEGACY For many, the War of 1812 happened in eastern Canada, far away from presentday British Columbia. While no battles were fought here, the war had great impact on the settlement of Western Canada and the eventual location of the international boundary. In 1812, two trading posts competed for the local fur trade in Kamloops. One was owned by the American-owned Pacific Fur Company, the other by the Northwest Company of Montreal. As a result of the war, the Americans decided to sell their trading post in 1813, ending their presence in the Canadian west. Kamloops Museum & Archives OPENS SEPTEMBER 10

HE PLAN, BACK THEN, WAS SIMPLE ENOUGH. I would get out of my cozy bed at 5:30 in the morning, exchange pyjamas for sweat pants, walk the short distance from my place over to the home of my best friend and, from there, the two of us would jog through the quiet streets of our neighbourhood for 45 minutes. After jogging, we’d stop back at Julie’s for toast and canned peaches — real summer-in-a-jar canned peaches; peaches that had been put up by her grandmother during sticky days spent over simmering vats of water. Following breakfast, I’d shuffle back home, then we’d each sally forth with minds and bodies invigorated by such excellent

Fresh • Local • Sustainable

In a medium bowl, whisk together oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add melted butter and stir until mixture has incorporated the butter and begins to come together into coarse crumbs. Slice peaches or nectarines in half and discard pit. Cut away a thin slice on the bottom side of each half, so they’ll sit on the baking pan without rolling around or toppling over. Place peaches on a plate, a few at a time, and heap with crumble mixture. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and continue with remaining peaches, catching up loose crumbs from plate and heaping them back on top. Bake in a 350 F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until peaches are tender to the tip of a knife (the knife should come out very hot after a few seconds inserted into a baking peach). Serve warm with ice cream. Baker’s Note: The crumble can be refrigerated for a few days in an airtight container, and the recipe works equally well doing two at a time in the toaster oven. Perfect for sharing with a friend at coffee time.

The three-week threshold for developing a habit passed and jogging never did stop becoming a trudge. And then, because I was never a jogger in my heart, and because 45 minutes spent staring down at my feet as they pounded the pavement was not its own reward, I began, instead, to walk. No longer at 5:30 in the morning. Not ever again. But, I began to walk through neighbourhoods where I sometimes stopped to watch, regardless of my target heart rate, as a deer and her fawn crossed the road. I walked and enjoyed the views while learning where the most colourful and fragrant local gardens were planted. I walked in parks and watched

salmon swim upstream while squirrels scolded me for getting too close to their caches of nuts. Even now, 20 years since my last run, I can’t say that walking has become a habit. But, I have learned that I can’t motivate anyone else. And I’ve learned that I can’t wait for anyone else to motivate me. So, today, my walk is to the farmer’s market for just a few peaches. Not enough for canning, but just enough for a new favourite recipe that is sized for a medium family gathering. It is also easily adapted to share with just one friend. onepotato2potato@shaw.ca

Kamloops’ Cadet Cameron collects kudos Cadet Levi Cameron of Kamloops has been recognized as the best cadet in his platoon during the six-week Drill and Ceremonial Instructor Course at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre in the summer. Cadet Cameron is a member of 2305 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, based in the Tournament Capital. Cadet Cameron was enrolled in the sixweek course, during which cadets not only perfected their individual drill, but also learned to teach younger cadets at their home corps. During the summer, they formed quarter guards to welcome dignitaries to the Vernon training centre and provided flag parties for all parades. For the final parade and sunset ceremony, cadets in the course formed the guard and fired the Feu de Joie, a rapid sequence of blank rounds. After the final parade, the cadets made their way to their homes in Western Canada. By summer’s end, 1,200 army, sea and air cadets from Western Canada will have spent up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming friendships.

Schlemeel, schlemazel, pair of swans incorporated . . . Laverne and Shirley are finally in Kamloops and should be ready to meet the public in the next few weeks. First, the sevenyear-olds have to spend sometime in quarantine to make sure they didn’t bring any bugs or germs with them when they made the trip from Calgary to the River City. But, once the animalcare technicians give the all-clear, the two black swans will join George, a tundra swan, and Ralph Edwards, a trumpeter swan, at the B.C. Wildlife Park. Whether the foursome and other water fowl in the pond will get along remains to be seen, said David Edwards, the park’s manager of education and events. “We’ll find out,” Edwards said with a laugh. “I guess it depends on the personality.” As a member of the Canadian Accredited Zoos and Aquariums, the Kamloops facility takes part in animal-sharing — moving surplus animals to locations that

have none. That’s how Laverne and Shirley came to their

attention, said David Edwards, the park’s manager of education and

special events. Their arrival was moved up, he said, due to

the Alberta floods earlier this year. The pair, which have

a life expectancy of about 40 years, were born at the Edmonton Valley Zoo in

2006 and relocated to the Calgary facility two years later.

Aberdeen park grows The City of Kamloops has begun construction on a 1.8-kilometre multiuse pathway in the new West Highlands Park in Aberdeen. The 3.5-metre wide fully accessible pathway will feature spectacular vistas of the North Thompson Valley, with scenic viewpoints and picnic areas, and will be constructed with both hard surface (asphalt) and soft surface (shale) over its continuous length. Construction of the multi-use path is expected to be complete by October at a cost of $200,000. The park replaces the former Aberdeen Hills Golf Course. Future development will include two multiuse grass sports fields, a community hall, a horticultural garden and a longboard-training site.

And choose a better future for all of us.

WOW — What a weekend for women An initial womenfocussed weekend at Sun Peaks Resort last year has grown into a bigger event. Building on the success of the event sponsored by Tourism Sun Peaks, Cathy Earle, who lives up on the mountain, has organized WOW — Women Only Weekend from Friday, Sept. 13 to Sunday, Sept. 15. It’s three days of workshops, exercise, wine tasting, a trade show and speakers, including a keynote address on Saturday, Sept. 14, by Sen. Nancy Green Raine. For more information, go online to WOWSunPeaks.com or email Earle at info@ wowsunpeaks.com.

Is their impairment in your workplace? The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce is hosting a seminar designed to help employers deal with suspected impairment in the workplace. “Our social-issues committee was formed with the mandate of providing business-based solutions to social issues within our community,” said Aleece Laird, chairwoman of the chamber’s committee. “We want to take a proactive approach to this topic by providing our membership with information and tools presented by experts within our own business community.” How to Deal with Suspected Employee Impairment in the Workplace will feature key speakers Debra Sloat of Simply Communicating, Don Anderson of TQM Consulting and Hugh MacInnes of HM Law. It will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 18, from noon to 2 p.m. in the chamber boardroom at 615 Victoria St. Cost is $20 for members, $25 for nonmembers. To reserve a seat, call 250-372-7722 or email mail@ kamloopschamber.ca.

2013 TERRY FOX RUN

Fox’s legacy lives on in annual run THE

The 33rd annual Terry Fox Run takes place in Kamloops on Sunday, Sept. 15, with a huge crowd of supporters expected to carry on the legacy in Riverside Park under sunny skies. Registration will take place at 9 a.m. at the Rotary Bandshell, with the run starting at 10 a.m. Distances include 3.5 km, 7 km and 10.5 km (3 x 3.5 km). The event is suitable for bikes, wheelchairs and strollers, but is not suitable for rollerblades. No dogs are allowed. In Kamloops, the run raises between $15,000 and $18,000 annually for the Terry Fox Foundation, which funds cure-oriented cancer research nationally and internationally.

TERRY FOX FILE

July 28, 1958: Terrance Stanley Fox is born in Winnipeg. March 9, 1977: Terry discovers he has a malignant tumour in his right leg. The leg is amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee. The night before his amputation, he reads about an amputee runner and dreams of running. February 1979: Terry begins training for his Marathon of Hope, a crossCanada run to raise money for cancer research and awareness. During training, he runs over 5,000 kilometres (3,107 miles). April 12, 1980: In St. John’s, Terry dips his artificial leg into the Atlantic Ocean and begins his odyssey. He runs an average of 42 kilometres (26 miles) a day through six provinces. Sept. 1, 1980: After 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 miles), Terry stops running outside of Thunder Bay as his primary cancer has spread to his lungs. Before returning to B.C. for treatment, Terry says, “I’m gonna do my very best. I’ll fight. I promise I won’t give up.” Sept. 2, 1980: Isadore Sharp, chairman and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, telegrams the Fox family with a commitment to organize a fundraising run that will be held every year in Terry’s name. He writes: “You started it. We will not rest until your dream to find a cure for

cancer is realized.” Sept. 18, 1980: Terry Fox becomes the youngest Companion of the Order of Canada in a special ceremony in his hometown of Port Coquitlam. Oct. 21, 1980: Terry Fox is awarded British Columbia’s highest civilian award — the Order of the Dogwood. Nov. 22, 1980: The American Cancer Society presents Terry with its highest award — the Sword of Hope. Dec. 18, 1980: Canadian sports editors vote Terry Fox the Lou Marsh Award for outstanding athletic accomplishment. Dec. 23, 1980: Editors of Canadian Press member newspapers and the radio and television stations serviced by Broadcast News name Terry Fox Canadian of the Year. Terry receives this honour again in 1981 after his death in June. Feb. 1, 1981: Terry’s hope of raising $1 from every Canadian to fight cancer is realized. The national population reaches 24.1 million; the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope fund totals $24.17 million. June 28, 1981: After treatment with chemotherapy and interferon, Terry Fox dies at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster — one month short of his 23rd birthday.

FAITH

Senators should heed the words of John Wesley

S

ENATE SCANDALS AND THE SUBSEQUENT DECISION TO AUDIT EVERY SENATOR COULD NOT HAVE COME AT A BETTER TIME AS THE CANADIAN ECONOMY CONTINUES TO TEETER. Repaying back to the national coffer is just restitution yet the ignominy of bad judgments in padding perks would carry the rule-breakers to their graves. Handling money honourably is an oftrepeated topic in the Bible. The great preacher John Wesley dealt often with money and materialism. NARAYAN MITRA He preached You Gotta Have in 1 Timothy 6:9, FAITH warning of the dangers of wanting to be rich. He preached on hazards of increasing riches. When preaching and writing about the Sermon on the Mount, he served up a tremendous amount of practical advice on what are legitimate expenses and what is excessive spending. In his many letters, he offered considerable advice to people who were already rich. In one particularly convincing sermon,

Wesley asked, “Why has Christianity done so little good?” He cited Christian’s materialism as a major cause of the “inefficacy of Christianity.” He was not shy about mentioning the eternal consequences of materialism. Preaching on the gospel story of the rich man and Lazarus, he reminded his listeners that gathering wealth and not using it properly can send a person to hell. In this sermon, he made his well-known practical statement: “It is no more sinful to be rich than poor. But, it is dangerous beyond expression.” Wesley believed a rich person could get into heaven — it was just harder. A “slippery slope,” as he put it. Perhaps the most well-known sermon of Wesley on money was titled “The use of money,” based on Luke 16:9. In this sermon, Wesley spoke of three points about money — gain all you can, save all you can and give all you can. Wesley believed that, when it came to making money, Christians had much in common with unbelievers and could “meet them on their own ground.” We ought to make money. It was argument for industriousness, hard work and cleverness. He thought Christians should work hard and long and the result would be gaining all the money they could. To him, there was nothing wrong with making money.

But, to Wesley, there are some ways of gaining money which are wrong. For example; • We are not to gain money at the expense of life or health. • Christians should not gain money through any occupation that harms our mind. • A real Christian would not “gain all he can” by hurting his neighbour. • A Christian has no business gaining money at the expense of his soul. When he wrote of saving all you can, Wesley did not mean Christians should tuck away as much as possible into savings accounts. What he meant was to be careful in spending — be frugal. He warned Christians tend to spend too much on the sensuous. He warned about extravagant spending on taste, expensive food, which he felt was an “epicurism” that led to debauchery in other areas. Rather, Christians should eat simple food. This principle applied to clothing, elaborate homes, extraordinary decoration and other showy things. What he was condemning is extravagance and sensuousness. Like Jesus, Wesley called for simplicity and plainness. Giving all you can was the motivation of his entire view on money. The trilateral stands on the giving base.

We are to gain and save in order to give. Give how much? Wesley’s answer: Give it all. Give to whom? He gave his own list: • First, give to yourself all you need for the basics. • Then, give to your family and employees their fair share. • Give to the “household of faith,” other Christians, which we assume includes the organized work of churches. • Finally, he said we are to give to all people in need, which includes the poor, the needy, even if they are not believers in God. To Wesley, money was for giving. We made it, we saved, so we could give it. In fact, on this third point of his trilateral, he actually switched the wording by the end of his message from “give all you can” to “give all you have.” He lived it, too. In the year Wesley earned today’s equivalent of $1.4 million, he lived on two per cent of his income and gave 98 per cent of it away. When he died, Wesley left behind only a few miscellaneous coins and a couple of silver spoons. He had given away the rest. He practised what he preached.
