Survey on Ajax mine now online

Speed-limit review already underway By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS jnagel@blackpress.ca

Transportation Minister Todd Stone wants B.C. residents to weigh in on a potential increase in highway speed limits now under consideration. Stone announced the formal review of speed limits in Kamloops on Friday, Oct. 4, although he had previously indicated it was coming and technical work is already underway. The Coquihalla Highway already has a speed limit of 110 km/h, but highway traffic does an average speed of 118 km/h, while drivers routinely exceed the posted limit on many other provincial highways. “There’s no question the Coquihalla is a prime candidate for an adjustment in the speed limit,” Stone said, also listing sections of Highway 1 in the Lower Mainland and around Kamloops as well as the Cariboo Connector toward Prince George. It’s been a decade since B.C. last reviewed speed limits. Stone said any increases would involve mainly rural provincial highways between communities, not highways in urban areas of the Lower Mainland, although which specific corridors to adjust will be subject to public input. He said a higher speed limit in some stretches of highway has been made possible by billions of dollars in major road upgrades since the last review in 2003, including 180 additional kilometres of four- and six-lane highways. He said vehicles are “much safer today than 10 years ago” as a result of traction-stability control, anti-lock brakes and other improvements. Stone cited a 28 per cent drop in injury-causing collisions since 2003, noting research increasingly suggests the greatest danger isn’t necessarily speeding itself, but driving at a much different speed than most other drivers. A minority of 15 per cent of drivers who don’t keep up with the flow or who speed excessively are at greater

risk of a crash than the other 85 per cent of drivers who may be going somewhat over the posted speed limit, he said. Stone stressed decreases in the speed limit are also possible. “This review is not about increasing speed limits. It’s about making sure we have the right speed limits.” Stone said there will be “no Autobahn” in B.C., where speed limits are lifted altogether. He said one option could be variable speed limits that are higher in the day and lower at night. The review will pull in fresh research from around the world and consider factors unique to B.C., like its geography and high mountain passes. The risk of crashes with wildlife will also be a key consideration. Bright signs that warn of wildlife at night — potentially activated by sensors that detect animals near the highway — are among various options the ministry will consider to counter that risk, particularly on highways where posted limits might rise. Stone said other technologies being tried elsewhere include automated sirens that scare wildlife off roads in areas where they pose a frequent hazard. The speed limit review aims to generate recommendations by next spring, when the legislature reconvenes. Public forums on the issue will be held in Kamloops, Chilliwack, Vancouver, Nanaimo, Prince George, Dawson Creek, Cranbrook and Kelowna starting in November, with potentially more sites to be added. One group advocating for higher speed limits is Sense BC, which was behind a recent viral video making the case for change. Sense BC’s Ian Tootill said even a 10-kilometre-an-hour increase on the Coquihalla to 120 km/h wouldn’t be enough to match the prevailing speeds in summer. “I’m not suggesting the Coquihalla should be 150 or 160, but it shouldn’t be 120,” he said.

The Kamloops Voters Society has launched an online survey to gather information on how city residents feel about the proposed Ajax mine. Society president Brad Harrison said the survey questions cover a range of topics that may be of interest to residents, noting the Kamloops Voters Society neither supports nor opposes the proposed copper and gold mine south of Aberdeen. As such, Harrison said, the society has prepared questions it believes are neutral in context. The survey runs through Monday, Oct. 14, and can be found online at kamloopsvoterssociety.ca. Harrison said results will be announced at the society’s annual general meeting on Sunday, Oct. 20, at 2 p.m. at the TRU Clocktower Building. The survey includes 20 questions and takes about five minutes to complete. The survey is be restricted to one response per Internet Protocol (IP) address and is confined to the boundaries of the City of Kamloops.

Spina joins $5,000+ club By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A third Kamloops city councillor is predicting she will exceed the $5,000 limit on travel expenses in 2013. Coun. Marg Spina joins Coun. Nancy Bepple and Mayor Peter Milobar in the over-$5,000 club. Spina said she expects her expenses for the year will come in at about $5,500 because of her commitment to the Southern Interior Local Government Association (SILGA), of which she is president. Besides attending meetings of the group, which also represents Merritt, Kelowna, Revelstoke and other south-central communities, Spina also represents SILGA at quarterly Union of B.C. Municipalities board meetings.

She said she is trying to do what she can to keep expenses down for council overall, even though hers will be higher than usual. For example, she’s driving fellow UBCM board member Coun. Arjun Singh to meetings in the Lower Mainland. “It shows up as mileage for me, but you do what makes logical sense,” she said. “Secondly, do you charge mileage? No, I’ll be putting in gas receipts because that’s what I think is reasonable.” Spina said UBCM and SILGA are dealing with some important issues, such as what powers communities should have when mines and gravel pits are proposed in or near their boundaries. “Do I have to do SILGA?” she asked. “Probably not, but, if I’m going to do it, I want to do it properly and work full-out.”

Bepple’s extra expenses stem from similar commitments. As a member of several Federation of Canadian Municipalities committees, she travels around the country several times a year for meetings. Milobar’s trips this year include the usual FCM and UBCM conventions, meetings of the B.C. Transit board of directors and a marathon round of travel later this month that includes a trip to Kamloops’ sister city, Uji, Japan, and a stop in Ottawa, where he will meet with federal Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq on the proposed Ajax mine. Councillors technically need council’s permission to exceed their expense budget for the year. A motion last week allowing Bepple and Spina to spend more than $5,000 passed unanimously without debate.

KGHM International Ajax Project

Trash/energy plan amended Kamloops’ decaying trash could be BC Hydro’s treasure — but not for at least another year. City council has decided to reduce the scope of a program to collect methane gas produced in the Mission Flats Landfill. While the city had originally intended to generate electricity from methane collected at the dump, which it would then sell to BC Hydro, it will now collect and flare off the gas. City environmental-services manager Jen Fretz said the cost of the original plan had ballooned $700,000 over original estimates, due to cost increases and a drastic drop in the amount of money the project would bring in. As part of the project, the city had planned to sell carbon credits to Pacific Carbon Trust and had expected to get around $25 a tonne. Now, Fretz said, the Pacific Carbon Trust said the city can expect about $11 per tonne. “It’s a significant reduction,” Fretz said. “We have asked a number of questions, as you can imagine, about what’s going on.” The cost of a flaring system is $2.6 million and within the scope of the original budget, Fretz said. Coun. Tina Lange questioned the effects of flaring on Kamloops’ air quality, but Fretz said it won’t be an issue. “I would say the greenhouse- gas impact from

what we’re doing right now — which is nothing — is far, far greater, I’d say 25 times greater, than if we were to flare it,” she said. While electrical generation is off the table for the moment, Fretz said staff are still looking at whether there is a business case for that part of the project. Because the city is the first to try to sell landfill energy this way, talks with BC Hydro are taking longer than usual, she said. There are no final numbers, but it’s been suggested the city could make about $200,000 a year from electrical sales. • Meanwhile, the City of Kamloops will pull $20,000 out of its reserve fund to replace a washedout wall shoring up the Thompson Valley R/C Race Club track next to the Valleyview Arena. Parks director Byron McCorkell said the wall collapsed after some recent flooding. “It just wasn’t able to manage the amount of water it was hit with,” he said. The new wall will include better drainage, including a larger channel for runoff. McCorkell said $20,000 is the “worst-case” figure. The city may be able to do the work itself and will mostly use materials from the old wall.

Shooting trial adjourned By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops Mounties “were doing an arrest first, sort out later” investigation after a bullet was fired through the floor of a home in July, striking a young mother in a downstairs suite. The defence used that description on Friday, Oct. 4, after the Crown prosecutor asked for — and was granted — an adjournment of the trial of Trevor Wilvers. The 35-year-old is facing a total of eight charges stemming from the June 4 incident that left a 25-year-old woman with a bullet wound to the arm. His trial was slated to begin on Monday, Oct. 7. In B.C. Supreme Court, Crown prosecutor Frank Caputo sought an adjournment on three grounds — a “key material witness” supposedly changing his story, another witness on the lam and apparently refusing to cooperate and the ongoing nature of the investigation of a vehicle believed to have been linked to Wilvers. Defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen opposed the request.

“The obvious reason for that is Mr. Wilvers is sitting behind me and wearing a jumpsuit,” he said. “And there is a substantial onus on Crown that, when you go to fix these dates, [they know] whether they will be able to conduct a trial or not.” Court heard the key witness whose story has apparently changed is Trevor Newton. Following the shooting, Wilvers and Newton were among a group of at least four people arrested on suspicion of careless use of a firearm. Court heard Newton told police, in the hours after the incident, that Wilvers was the one who fired the gun. Caputo met with Newton at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre on Sept. 27 and found out his story had changed. “What you have is a very weak Crown case and the realities of the house of cards crumbling down when my friend [Caputo] attends KRCC,” Jensen said. “Now, the only person saying my client did this [Newton] isn’t saying it anymore — and now he’s asking for an adjournment.” Jensen also took issue with

the Kamloops RCMP’s investigation of the shooting. “The police, for some reason, did not take a GSR [gunshot residue] swab from Mr. Newton — a complete oversight,” he said. “Mr. Newton gets let go and — surprise, surprise — Mr. Newton is now saying he can’t make that same statement.” Jensen called the RCMP’s actions “an arrest first, sort out later” investigation. Wilvers was released on bail days after the shooting, then promptly re-arrested a day later on an unrelated matter. Jensen told court he agreed with another Crown prosecutor to not seek bail for Wilvers on the new charges, but that “subject to what happened to this [shooting] file, the Crown will revisit the custodial status of Mr. Wilvers.” In granting the adjournment, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan noted the short time between the shooting and trial date. “The trial date obtained was a very quick trial date,” she said. “The charges, on their face, are very serious and there is a high public interest in this matter being adjudicated fairly.”

Economist: Owning land connects natives to global economy By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Though he spoke globally rather than locally, it wasn’t difficult to see why Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto would attract the attention of former Tk’emlups Indian Band chief Manny Jules. De Soto, once called “the world’s greatest living economist” by former U.S. president Bill Clinton, argues that one of the keys to eliminating poverty in indigenous communities throughout the Americas is granting aboriginal people the right to own property. “If you’ve got a Peruvian walking around who doesn’t have a piece of paper connecting them to the global economy, you’re condemning them to poverty,” de Soto said during a public lecture at Thompson Rivers University

Fresh Organic Cranberries Product of Canada. Canada No. 1 Grade. 227 g.

on Friday, Oct. 4. “That’s why two-billion people are doing a lot better than the other five billion.” In an introduction, Jules said de Soto’s argument mirrors his own thinking on issues for Canada’s First Nations. Jules, who chairs the First Nations Tax Commission, is one of the country’s prominent proponents of property rights for First Nations, as laid out in the federal government’s proposed First Nations Property Ownership Act. Previously, Jules helped lead the charge to allow bands to collect property taxes on some of their reserve lands. “We don’t own our lands. The federal government claims ownership over those lands,” Jules said. “We need to be empowered. We need to be in a position where we can make our own decisions.”

In his talk, de Soto said the value of property isn’t so much the physical land and assets as it is the information it provides — the ability to enter into contracted agreements, assess, record value and so on. It also allows individuals and communities to work together on a global scale without taking on insurmountable amounts of financial risk, he said. “What the West did, I think, is create a wealth and contractual system that allowed people to co-operate above a tribal level,” de Soto said, noting that begins with property. Besides his lecture at TRU, de Soto met with local chiefs to discuss First Nations property rights and with representatives of the university’s Tulo School of Indigenous Economics, which is partnering with his Institute of Liberty and Democracy think tank.

Kickstart 101: Life’s a Gass for BCLC VP By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

O

NE OF THE many accomplishments Kevin Gass has had in his life is his involvement in Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. The path that took him there and the reason he views it as a career highlight could be a template for young people looking to succeed in business — and that’s why he was invited to Thompson Rivers University on Wednesday, Oct. 2, to speak to students at its School of Business and Economics. Gass, vice-president of lottery gaming for the B.C. Lottery Corporation, took the group of students and local business people through his life’s journey from one of the first university students to be involved in co-op education through successes, bumps in the road and challenges he overcame. Science and math were his favourite subjects, he told the students, so he assumed an engineering career would be his path and registered for it in university. “I realized that was not my thing,� he said. Within a year, he switched to communications and business. Lesson No. 1: “If you’re going down the wrong path, you’ve got to course-correct,� he told the students. He did four stints of

co-op education, working at a variety of businesses, and he told the students the experience was one of the best stepping stones in his career. More importantly, he said, was something he learned that too often he sees graduates fail to understand. Lesson No. 2: “No job is beneath you. Take every opportunity you have and run with it. You will get noticed.� For him, it led to a job with Burson-Marsteller, a public-affairs firm that happened to be opening an office in Vancouver. Gass was approached by the firm, with which he had spent a co-op period, and was hired after he graduated because they had been impressed with his work and his work ethic. From there, it was an upward climb, Gass said, through a variety of jobs — some where he was the boss, others as a senior manager, with stops that connected him with marketing for the introduction of the National Basketball Association and the Vancouver Grizzlies to the city, then on to work with the Vancouver Canucks and developing a PGA Tour event. Gass then saw potential with the Internet and, in the summer of 2000, moved on again to start a financial-information company that developed unique technology that led to attention from major players like the Wall Street Journal and

Bloomberg News. As he neared signing a major deal, the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, hit and, rather than sitting in shock as others were doing, Gass said, he and others in his company hopped on a plane and flew to New York to meet with their contacts and offer them whatever help they needed. Lesson No. 3: “You never know how life is going to go, so follow your instincts.� Rather than losing the deals in the wake of the devastation to the New York financial district, Gass said, by going there and listening to people and heeding their requests to just give them some time to rebound, he signed contracts he feared he had lost. In 2003, Gass met Vic Poleschuk, the former CEO of the lottery corporation, and he changed his career path again, noting the day before his address to the students, he had marked his 10th anniversary with the corporation. That brings the story back to why the children’s hospice is one of his proudest moments. It came about, he said, because of the connections he made through his career — working with the Canucks led to the team’s involvement in the creation and support of the centre — and with people learning to trust Gass to get the job done. It’s the fundamental lesson of his business career, he told the stu-

dents: Do the work, do as much work as you can, listen and learn and always put together the best team you can. “And remember, it’s a small world out there. You burn a bridge and it will haunt you forever.� Gass’s speech was part of Kickstart 101, a series being presented by the business school.

Provincewide marijuana referendum misguided

I

WON’T BE SIGNING THE “Sensible B.C.” petition to demand a provincewide referendum on marijuana enforcement. You shouldn’t, either — and here are a few reasons why. Let me start by saying I’ve been calling for legalization and regulation of pot for 20 years, to conserve police resources and reduce violent crime. Our war on drugs is a failure even for heroin and cocaine — and marijuana is obviously much easier to produce. However, the current effort led by Dana Larsen, B.C.’s clown prince of pot, is not only misguided, it’s dangerous. The petition does not propose legalization. It seeks to impose a provincial law that would stop B.C. police from using any resources for simple possession charges. This would create a loophole in the federal drug law. So, what would that do? It would protect otherwise innocent customers of the current illegal marijuana trade, while leaving the criminal distribution business in place. For a closer look at that, I recommend reports from the Surrey Six murder trial now underway or the upcoming case against three accused assassins of Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna. Larsen’s loony law would tie the hands of police when they are trying to hold someone on a lesser charge while they search for evidence of something nastier. This is a source of many simple

VICTORIA possession charges today. Police chiefs have a different idea, asking for the option of treating simple possession as a ticket offence to keep court time to a minimum. Both of these notions have the same obvious flaws — they don’t deal with sales to minors and they divert no revenue to government, leaving most of that in the hands of criminal dealers who buy cocaine, guns and fancy cars. Colorado and Washington have gone the legalization route, so far without interference from their federal government. These states need money and they don’t need more crime or ill-considered hippy gesture politics. Meanwhile, in Ottawa, Health Canada is trying to convert a poorly regulated mess of small-scale medical-marijuana licences to a free-market system of commercial producers. Local politicians tore a strip off Health Canada officials at their recent convention, after years of warnings that federal licences were scattered at unknown locations, often used as fronts for larger grow-ops.

Mission Coun. Dave Hensman predicted that when a grower gets a letter cancelling his licence, he’s more likely to roll up a big joint with it than to shut down. Burnaby Coun. Nick Volkow suggested the response would echo an old Cheech and Chong routine: “Dave’s not here, man.” Here’s another reason not to support Larsen — the conduct of his organizers. One fellow set up a petition table at, of all places, the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam. After scrawling “pot cures cancer” on the table, he proceeded to interrupt speeches by cancer survivors and the run itself by yelling the same false slogan. You can imagine how people with terminal cancer and their loved ones would react. Some would know marijuana may alleviate side effects of chemotherapy, just as it can ease suffering for some multiple sclerosis patients. But, the suggestion of a cure is as cruel as it is moronic. Larsen’s “cannibus” has been rolling around B.C., reaping uncritical media coverage. It even blundered into the recent Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver, an event to mark the end of federal hearings into the effects of residential schools on aboriginal children. I wouldn’t support the Larsen bunch for anything, unless it involved them looking for jobs. Just say no. tfletcher@blackpress.ca Twitter:@tomfletcherbc

It is a multi-billion-dollar industry, but it could soon be costing municipalities a bundle more if the trend continues. According to news reports, communities such as Kingston, Ont., Vancouver, Wash., and London, England, are facing a new problem in their sewers — a problem that just can’t be wiped away. Even smaller communities, such as Okanagan Falls and Penticton, are facing the same problem. Flushable cleaning cloths, flushable moist wipes or whatever name they use, are the result of a clever marketing campaign designed to make adults feel like they aren’t getting the job done the old-fashioned way. When did that problem arise? Did the sun start shining where the sun isn’t suppose to shine? The problem is the wipes claim to be flushable, but they hang around too long. ConsumerReports.org, which reports on the good, bad and ugly of all things consumer, tested three wipe products all claiming to be flushable and allegedly designed to disintegrate just like toilet paper. Indeed the wipes were flushable, in that they went down the toilet, but they did not disintegrate as quickly as toilet paper. Toilet paper usually takes less than 10 seconds to disintegrate. By the time the flushed water leaves the domestic plumbing, it has disintegrated. Using the same test on the three brands of wipes, all claiming to be flushable, ConsumerReports. org stopped the test after 30 minutes with no sign of the wipes disintegrating. Thirty minutes is long enough for a wipe to make its way down the sewer system and clog a pump. In the case of local municipalities, it has added thousands of dollars to maintenance costs. This is one problem we can easily wipe away the old-fashioned way — by using soap and water.

Aberdeen claim shows why act needs update Editor: How many readers are aware that, earlier this year, a mineral claim was staked within the city? On May 18, Mineral Tenure Claim #1019608 was staked in lower Aberdeen. It is 20.49 hectares in size and is approximately centred in the Howe Road playground/dog-walking park at the intersection of Howe Road and Pacific Way. It extends across developed and undeveloped land, with one of the boundaries running beneath Kamloops Seniors’ Village. Was the City of Kamloops consulted? Should the city have been consulted? Not according to the B.C. Mineral Tenure Act. The call to review B.C.’s Mineral Tenure Act originally came from Tofino Mayor Josie Osborne in her compelling letter to the Victoria Times-Colonist on April 12. Following her lead, the Union of BC

Municipalities voted on Sept. 19 to support a resolution calling on the provincial government to modernize the Mineral Tenure Act. The act was amended in 2005 and in 2012. A close examination of the act, however, reveals that, in spite of these amendments, there is nothing that requires prior approval from any local community within a certain radius of a proposed claim before a mineral claim is registered. This is the issue. As we are experiencing with the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine, once a mineral claim-holder decides to develop a claim, there is a lengthy environmentalassessment process. Yes, the community has input into the environmental assessment. But, in the end, it is the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office that makes a final recommendation to the provincial Minister of the Environment, who

then makes the decision on whether the project goes ahead. Three other provinces — Ontario, Quebec and Alberta — have amended their mineral-tenure acts or are in the process of doing so. Bill 43 is the current effort in Quebec to see changes made to its Mining Act. The following amendment shows the kind of change needed in B.C.: “The bill amends the act respecting land-use planning and development to allow regional county municipalities to delimit any mining-incompatible territory or any conditionally mining-compatible territory in their land-use and development plan” It is imperative the B.C. government amend its Mineral Tenure Act to require mineral claims to be approved by municipal, regional and First Nations’ governments before they are registered.

A BANNER ISSUE FOR DEBATE When Kamloops city council received a letter from Allysa Gredling, who objected to council’s decision to approve the display of a pro-life banner, the debate was on. Gredling called the banner and its message “discriminatory” and Coun. Nelly Dever agreed, opining: “I don’t understand why we’re allowing this banner to be up because I think it goes against the rights of women.” The comments elicited a large number of readers to send letters to the editor of KTW, the vast majority of which support the right of the Kamloops ProLife Society to hang its banners above city streets. As of Monday, Oct. 7, KTW had received 11 letters, one of which objected to the banners being hung.

Some letters have already been published and all letters can be read online at kamloopsthisweek.com. Click on the “Opinion/Letters” tab. There, website visitors can read Kathy Dahl’s letter, in which she states: “Why do some people become so offended by the words ‘One life can make a difference’? How could ‘Protect Human Life Week’ offend anyone?” Website visitors can also read Erin Mitchell’s letter, in which she takes issue with claims made by Christina Sewell of the Kamloops Pro-Life Society: “To a considerable degree, anti-abortion activists are able to take advantage of the fact the general public and most policy makers do not know what constitutes ‘good science.’” These and other letters are available to be read online.

Editor: I keep reading over and over that opponents of the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine are only the older, retired citizens of Kamloops. I strongly oppose this mine and I am 36 years old. My husband, my friends and my relatives who are all around my age oppose the proposed mine. Many young people, teenagers and college students have commented on my “Stop Ajax Mine” bumper sticker, saying they are also opposed. Unfortunately, we are all either working, raising children or going to school, which makes it more difficult for us to attend protests and meetings. I applaud all those who are sticking their necks (and faces) out to voice opposition. If they have more time to do this because they are retired, then good for them. They are representing many, many people in Kamloops, not just a specific demographic. Thank you to all who are tirelessly fighting this atrocity of a proposal. There are more people than you know supporting you! Jordan Lawrence Kamloops

FIRE PREVENTION WEEK

Kamloops seniors can get free smoke alarms The City of Kamloops is teaming up with the Centre for Seniors Information, Seniors Outreach Society, the province of British Columbia and the Fire Chiefs Association of B.C. to ensure seniors have working smoke alarms in their homes. According to 2011 Census data from Statistics Canada, close to 13,000 seniors live in Kamloops, with just over 8,000 living in private residences. This makes up 10 per cent of Kamloops’ population.

In January 2012, a report prepared by the Surrey Fire Services and the University of the Fraser Valley, Smoke Alarms Work, But Not Forever, was released to the public. The report identified the importance of smoke alarms and the groups at highest risk of dying in a house fire. This report identifies seniors as one of the target groups.

Fire facts: Surrey Fire Services and University of the Fraser Valley research

shows: • On average, 35 people died in structure fires in B.C. each year

between 2006 and 2011. • Young children, older adults, people with disabilities, rental

units and households in low-income areas, rural communities and First Nations reserves are at

greater risk. • Working smoke alarms could reduce annual fire deaths by as much as 32 per cent. Data from the B.C. Office of the Fire Commissioner shows nearly 70 per cent of the fire scenes examined between 2006 and 2011 had no functioning smoke alarm. “Working smoke alarms are the best defense for protecting your loved ones from fire,â€? said Kamloops Fire Rescue interim Chief Dennis Fayers. “Kamloops Fire Rescue wants to make

sure that everyone has access to smoke alarms and we want to start with the people who are at highest risk.� If you know of a senior, or if you are a senior and you require smoke alarms or your smoke alarm is more than 10 years old, call Kamloops Fire Rescue at Fire Station No. 1 at 250-372-5131 or complete the online application at kamloops.ca. Kamloops Fire Rescue will give out smoke alarms and install them free of charge.

Make kitchen safety a priority Kids! Enter to win an iPad during Fire Prevention Week ity booklet for children ages five to eight. It highlights fire and burn hazards, knowing what to do in case of a fire and home-escape planning. In addition to making sure everyone knows about kitchen safety, every household in B.C. should have working smoke alarms, particularly in sleeping areas, and an extinguisher. Families are encouraged to check smokealarm batteries monthly and to mark their calendars to ensure they clean the devices twice a year. “The kitchen is the heart of the home,� said Attorney General and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton. “It is a busy place where families gather first thing in the morning and where they get together to discuss the day, but it can also be a dangerous place. “It’s important that everyone know how to stay safe while preparing and cooking meals, and I appreciate the efforts of fire officials to educate the public.� Tim Pley, Port Alberni fire chief and Fire Chiefs’ Association of B.C. president, said this year’s theme serves as

Flame facts:

an important reminder. “Use caution when cooking and be watchful around heat and open flame,� he said. “It’s also very important to ensure you have working smoke alarms in your home. “Test them regularly and remember — smoke alarms save lives, but don’t last forever.�

• In British Columbia during 2012, 6,780 reported fires caused 266 injuries (231 for civilians and 35 for firefighters) and 35 deaths. • On average, a British Columbian is injured by a residential fire every 32 hours in B.C. During Fire Prevention Week 2013, the Office of the Fire Commissioner is also supporting participating fire departments with an iPad contest for children

ages five to eight (and attending school in kindergarten to Grade 3).

Fire officials and the provincial government are encouraging British Columbians to make sure every member of their family knows the recipe for preventing kitchen fires during National Fire Prevention Week, which runs through Saturday, Oct. 12. Each year, Fire Prevention Week highlights a key aspect of fire education. This year’s theme, Prevent Kitchen Fires, focuses on ensuring every member of the family — from parents and university/college students to the youngest toddler — knows about safety in the kitchen. Cooking is the leading cause of determined home fires and fire related injuries in British Columbia, with 33 per cent of fire injuries caused by cooking and equipment and 34 per cent of residential fires starting in the kitchen. There were 811 fires related to cooking equipment in 2012.

Jury selection begins in murder trial Jury selection began this week for a Kamloops man accused of stabbing to death his friend at a downtown house party over a year ago. Torbin Alec, 30, was charged with seconddegree murder after his friend, 29-year-old Jesse Seymour, was killed following an altercation outside a home in the 700-block of Columbia Street on July 15, 2012. Both men were drunk at the time of the fight, police said at the time.

tracked down by another RCMP patrol car on the Summit connector a few minutes later. When that Mountie attempted to stop the vehicle, Bush said, the driver fled again. Police then set up two road blocks on Summit. The suspect is alleged to have blown through the first, but was stopped by the second — thanks

to a spike belt — and taken into custody. Bush said the 24-year-old man behind the wheel, who has a lengthy criminal record, will likely face charges of impaired driving, breaching probation and additional driving-related offences. His name has not been made public.

Raid on home nets police drugs and cash A Kamloops man will likely face drug charges after police executed a search warrant at a North Shore home on Thursday, Oct. 3. The Kamloops RCMP’s special-projects unit raided a residence on 12th Street at about 9:30 p.m., resulting in the seizure of two ounces of cocaine and heroin, drug paraphernalia, cellphones, cash and two replica handguns. RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush said a 36-year-old man, who is on the Mounties’ list of local prolific

offenders, was arrested. “Officers will be recommending drug-related charges against the male,” she said. His name has not been made public.

COVER PAGE STORY

Hadfield on zero gravity, sleeping and, ahem, peeing in space By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

RISSON Jyrkkanen summed up his Chris Hadfield experience in a single word: “Epic.” During an afternoon question-and-answer session at Thompson Rivers University’s Alumni Theatre on Friday, Oct. 4, Hadfield called the 11-year-old onto the stage to help him answer a question about the effects of space travel on the human body. After pointing out the ways Arisson’s body is well-adapted to life with gravity — from his circulatory system to his skeleton — the former International Space Station (ISS) commander wrapped his arms around the boy’s chest and lifted him right off his feet. “There’s Arisson, beautifully evolved over tens of millions of years on Earth — and now, suddenly, he’s weightless, floating around,” Hadfield said. “So, now, most of those things don’t apply.” Without gravity, the circulatory system doesn’t need to work as hard to pump blood to the brain, so the heart shrinks. Ditto for the skeleton. “The first time your body goes into space, it says forget the last

Astronaut Chris Hadfield gives 11-year-old Arisson Jyrkkanen a hands-on example of the effects of zero gravity on the human body. Andrea Klassen/KTW.

million years, I’m now in weightlessness,” explained Hadfield, who said he lost about eight per cent of the bone mass in his hips and upper thighs on his last six-month space mission. “I don’t need those calcium and minerals. I don’t need to hold my head up any more.” Hadfield is arguably Canada’s most famous astronaut today, thanks to YouTube videos, Tweets and a song co-written with the Barenaked Ladies’ Ed Robertson while Hadfield was in command of the ISS for six months in 2012 and 2013. But, that wasn’t his first trip beyond Earth’s

atmosphere. Hadfield also helped build Russian space station Mir and, on his second mission, became the first Canadian to spacewalk — an honour that will land his picture on the next $5 bill. In Kamloops to give a TRU President’s Lecture based on his new memoir, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, Hadfield’s afternoon session with science alumni and school children was a more informal kind of chat in which he answered questions about eating and sleeping in zero gravity — “I would go to space for the sleeping, but not for the food,” he said —

becoming an astronaut and for-profit space travel. He also answered a few more personal questions, including how astronauts go to the bathroom in space. While urine is collected using a hose and funnel apparatus so it can be recycled into drinking water — a fact that elicited plenty of groans from the audience, though Hadfield pointed out water-treatment plants on Earth aren’t so different — solid-waste collection is more complicated. “If Steve’s going to the bathroom in space,” Hadfield said, using another audience volunteer, “the first thing that happens is he sits on the toilet and he floats away.” So, before doing anything else, astronauts have to buckle their bathroom seatbelt. “The solids come out of Steve’s body and go down into a Russiandesigned toilet that’s got a little blue bag that you put in each time,” Hadfield said. Meanwhile, air flow inside the toilet pulls waste away from the body, since gravity isn’t available for the job. “What’s interesting is, because you don’t have to flush the toilet in space, because it’s collected in a bag, you don’t have to use disposable stuff to clean your body up, like toilet paper,” he said. Instead, astronauts

favour wet wipes. “Which means he has an extremely clean bum in space,” Hadfield said. “Like a little baby’s bum. He has a perfectly clean bum the whole time in space. And that’s good because

your underwear lasts way longer.” On a more serious note, Hadfield offered three tips for kids in the audience aspiring to some day aim for the stars: Get an advanced degree in something complex, stay healthy

and show you can make good decisions when it’s most important. “I wouldn’t just focus on those three to be an astronaut,” Hadfield said. “Those are useful skills no matter what you want to do in life.”

I’m hurt but won’t be sad The time I’ve missed you has gone so quick And you will always be MY DAD

Rob

Bev was born in Vancouver, she grew up there and attended Kitsilano High, she moved to Seton Portage with her family in the late 1940’s and took her nurses training at Tranquille Sanatorium in Kamloops BC. Bev married Chuck in 1951 and together they raised their six children in Seton Portage and later in Maple Ridge. Bev and Chuck moved back to Seton Portage in the early 1980’s. Bev’s passion was medicine and she worked in that field at both the Maple Ridge and Lillooet Hospitals. She moved to Kamloops in 1999 to be closer to her children. Mom was an avid supporter of Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House. She volunteered for Kamloops Hospice for many years. She was a wonderful mom, always putting her children first in her life. Bev was a member of the Eastern Star, both in Lillooet and Kamloops chapters, it was a huge part of her life and she loved it dearly. Many thanks to the staff and volunteers at the Kamloops Hospice for their compassionate care, it was wonderful for mom to be surrounded by your love and friendships in her final days. Thank you to so many friends and family for your love and support. A service and tea in Bev’s honor will take place at the Masonic Hall, 351 Nicola Street, Kamloops on Saturday October 12, 2013 at 2pm. In lieu of flowers the family kindly requests donations in Bev’s memory to the Kamloops Hospice Association.

Broncos heading to playoffs By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

INO Bernardo’s alarm went off during an interview with KTW on Monday morning. He was already awake. The conversation he was having with a reporter was not a dream — his beloved Kamloops Broncos had

actually nailed down their first-ever B.C. Football Conference playoff berth. “We’ve had a lot of ups and downs and there’s been a lot of years where we thought maybe we should stop doing this,” said Bernardo, the team’s president. “If we’re never going to make playoffs, what’s the point of having a team?”

Nanaimo’s Vancouver Island Raiders, which finished atop league standings with an 8-2 record, will host Kamloops on Saturday, Oct. 12. Game time is 1 p.m. The Broncos backed into the playoffs, losing 51-0 to the Okanagan Sun in Kelowna on Sunday, Oct. 6. Kamloops and the Chilliwack-based

Valley Huskers finished the regular season with matching 2-7-1 records, having played each other three times, with each team winning once and the other game finishing in a tie. The Broncos held an 84-82 point-differential advantage in the head-to-head matchups, giving them an edge in the tiebreaker for the fourth and final

playoff spot. The Huskers managed to tie the Broncos in the standings thanks to a loss to Okanagan being overturned due to an ineligible player on the Sun roster. “I can’t speak for the players, but I know I’m disappointed in our record,” Bernardo said. “We should have been 5-5. “Our kids just didn’t believe in themselves

at the beginning of the year. I’m not sure what it was, but we just didn’t play well those first few weeks, then we strung together a few good games and then it went downhill at the end of the year.” The hometown Sun will play the Langley Rams in the other semifinal on Sunday, Oct. 13. There are several reasons why the

Broncos can count themselves lucky. Two years ago, the BCFC adopted an unbalanced-schedule format, in which the league’s top three teams play each other three times and the lower-echelon teams meet three times. The league’s top teams, historically, are Vancouver Island, Okanagan and Langley. X See BRONCOS A21

Younger players OK, veterans called out By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The young guys are not the problem up front, says Dave Hunchak, the Kamloops Blazers’ head coach. “They’ve given us the energy and the things they need to do on a consistent basis,” said Hunchak, whose Blazers are hosting the Tri-City Americans tonight (Oct. 8). “It’s our older guys that need to get better.” Game time tonight is 7 p.m. at Interior Savings Centre. Kamloops has tallied the second fewest number of goals in the Western Conference, with 14 after six games. Hunchak offered insight on a few of the Blazers’ 1996- and 1997-born charges and seemed most pleased with forward Nathan Looysen, a forward from Saanichton. “He has improved big time,” Hunchak said. “He’s made major strides. His pace is better, he’s more confident with and without the puck and he’s a player that, down the road, is going to be a very important guy on our team.” Looysen, Jesse Shynkaruk and Mitch Lipon have each seen the ice a fair bit, even spending time playing top-six minutes throughout the early

stages of the WHL campaign, in which the Blazers have posted a 2-4 record. Their strong play might have made easier the decision to re-assign forwards Devin Oakes, 18, and Tristan Sieben, 19 — roster moves general manager Craig Bonner made on Monday, Oct. 7. “Mitch Lipon has a tremendous amount of skill,” Hunchak said. “It’s a matter of him not worrying about getting the puck to the older guys. He can do things on his own, too. “Shynkaruk, at times, he has to slow the game down in his mind and let his feet catch up to his brain.” Neither Eric Krienke, 17, Mitch Friesen, 17, or Nick Chyzowski, 16, have made much of an impact in the minimal minutes they’ve played. Taran Kozun will start between the pipes tonight for Kamloops and forward Cole Ully is back in the lineup after serving a twogame suspension. Perhaps Ully’s return will light a fire under the Blazers’ veteran forwards. If it doesn’t, Hunchak’s words should do the trick. “If the older guys aren’t getting the job done, the younger guys are going to step in,” Hunchak said. “That’s where we’re at as an organization.”

Kamloops Blazers hockey operations staff members, from left, Dave Hunchak, head coach, Mark Ferner, associate coach, Guy Charron, advisor to hockey operations, and Dan De Palma, goaltending coach, will be at Interior Savings Centre tonight when the Kamloops Blazers host Tri-City. Allen Douglas/KTW

Broncos snuck in, but they’ll take it X From A19

Last season, however, the Westshore Rebels of Victoria exceeded expectations and finished in the top tier, leaving them to play the big dogs — Vancouver Island and Langley — three times each in 2013. The Rebels finished this season in last place with a 2-8 record (their only wins coming against the Broncos and Huskers), while the Sun posted an 8-2 mark and reclaimed their spot in the top three after a freak 3-7 year in 2012. Should the Rebels have played the Broncos and Huskers three times this season, it’s quite possible they would be travelling to Nanaimo this weekend. Kamloops might not be in the playoffs for the first time since

re-joining the BCFC in 2007 if it were not for one controversial call in a victory over the Rebels at Hillside Stadium on Sept. 14. Grady Chalmers of the Broncos blocked an extra-point with no time on the clock to seal a 37-36 win for Kamloops. It appeared the kick would be retaken after the Broncos looked to have been called for too many men on the field, but the penalty flag was eventually picked up and the Broncos were deemed victors. Rebels head coach Tim Kearse was disgusted with the call, as it did appear there were too many Broncos on the field. There’s no telling what would have happened if the kick was retaken but, should the Broncos have gone on to lose that contest,

to build something.” The Raiders are likely salivating at the prospect of Bronco on the menu this Saturday, with Vancouver Island having scored 392 points this season, compared to Kamloops’ total of just 176, second fewest in the BCFC. Kamloops can take stock in its performance against Vancouver Island in the teams’ only meeting this season, a 37-27 victory for the Raiders at Hillside on Aug. 24 — by no means a blowout. There’s no doubt Bernardo will be pinching himself Sunday morning if the Broncos can pull off a minor miracle. “On any given Sunday, if you make it into the playoffs, anything can happen,”

they might not be hopping a ferry this weekend. The fact remains the River City’s much-maligned juniorfootball team will be in the Harbour City for its first playoff game in franchise history. Bernardo might not be thrilled with his team’s record, but he couldn’t be happier for its players — past and present. “This is not just for this team, but it’s for those guys — the Alex Adams, the Mark Grattons, the David Boultons, the Mitch Days — who helped build the program,” Bernardo said. “We had a lot of guys leave here, who didn’t stay here for their full time, and those guys stayed. They could have left and played for better teams, but they wanted

Raiders’ rugby recap

Kevin Duggan of the Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders broke away from a pack of Richmond players in B.C. Rugby Union play at the Tournament Capital Ranch on Saturday, Oct. 5. Justin Fournier photo

There was plenty of rugby on offer at the Tournament Capital Ranch in Rayleigh on the weekend. Richmond was in town to play Kamloops in B.C. Rugby Union first- and-second division action. The Raiders were beaten in the men’s first-division tilt, losing 39-14. Justin Blanchard scored the home team’s only try and Trevor Miyazaki added three penalty kicks. Kamloops was victorious in second-

division play, beating Richmond 41-24. Chris Chan scored a pair of tries, with Blanchard, Ryan Penner, Hayes Bishop and Kevin Duggan adding singles. Jordan Sullivan booted four conversions and one penalty kick. In women’s firstdivision play, Bayside of South Surrey knocked off the Raiders 39-25. Emily Young notched a pair of tries and Francesca Fraser added a single. Jess

Oldenburger chipped in with two conversions and two penalties. In junior play, Kamloops beat the Brit Lions of Delta 51-7. Each of the KRC teams will break for Thanksgiving weekend. Both men’s teams return to action on Oct. 19, when Bayside brings its first- and second-division sides to the River City. Meanwhile, the KRC women will visit Burnaby.

Deb McClelland receives high praise on national level By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

S SHE SAT IN THE audience, listening as some unnamed person was praised as a leadup to an award presentation, Deb McClelland was as attentive as anyone else. She listened to the person — even gender was not mentioned — being described for vision, teamwork, a lot of attributes that, she told KTW, “I thought, well, I do that but other people do that, too.” So, it could have been anyone at the annual gathering of the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada. And then, as the description moved on to the person’s work “seeking input from the grassroots level, something that is unique to us among chambers, I started to realize what was going on,” McClelland said. The glass trophy she received for being named Canadian Executive of the Year for a population of fewer than 100,000 joins one she received from the B.C. Chamber Executives in 2008. Dave Eagles/KTW

Kamloops Chamber of Commerce executive director Deb McClelland has been named the executive of the year for communities with populations under 100,000 by the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada. Dave Eagles/KTW

McClelland touched by nomination from staff McClelland, who started working with the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce in 1999, was named its executive director in 2003. Her staff and board members put together the nomination and, although the award made her emotional, it was reading the package they prepared that truly touched her, she said. “I was reading it and I thought, ‘I did all that?’ “You do all these things and you don’t think about it — because it’s just what you do. “But, there were sentiments in there from people across the city and, I have to tell you, reading those left me feeling like I had won the big prize. “In some ways, those letters meant more to me.” Ask her what she’s done in the past year and there is a sigh and then a laugh. It’s easier to ask her what the highlight has been from the past year. “Buying our own space was huge,” she said of the move from near Aberdeen Mall to a storefront on Victoria Street.

And so was the rebranding “And and the new programming.” ven the logo that now Even graces the chamber’s front door at 615 Victoria St. — as well as all of its marketing tools — was a delight to work on, McClelland said. “When we introduced it,” she said of the symbol that looks a lot like intertwined boomerangs, “the interpretations were so interesting and so cool. “People were seeing different things and all meant the same thing. And they loved it right off.” McCelland said she has got plans for where the chamber needs to go next and she also wants to continue in her mentorship role with other chambers and executive directors

$ $ The New Orford String Quartet will play the Calvary Community Church in Kamloops on Thursday, Oct. 10.

Orford set to play Kamloops By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Later this year, the Royal Conservatory will mark the 90th birthday of a celebrated pianist at its renowned Koerner Hall in Toronto. The Nov. 24 event will feature the New Orford String Quartet, itself known worldwide, performing works by Ludwig van Beethoven, R. Murray Schafer and Johannes Brahms as they honour Menahem Pressler. Kamloopsians can hear the same four musicians performing the same program this week as the quartet brings its Western Canadian tour to Calvary Community Church. for a concert on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 7:30 p.m. The quartet is composed of violinists Andrew Wan and Jonathan Crow, violist Eric Nowlin and cellist Brian Manker. Wan is concertmaster and Manker is principal with the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal; Crow is concertmaster and Nowlin is associate

principal with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Wan and Crow have appeared with the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra before, Wan performing Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D Major and Crow doing Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto. In the hierarchy of symphonies, concertmaster is the secondmost important position after conductor and followed by principal and associate principal. The works

they will perform include Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 6 in B-flat major, Schafer’s String Quartet No. 1 and Brahms’ String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor. While the works are unique, they have some common themes; the fourth movement of the Beethoven concerto is a dance with German folk-dance influences while the last movement of the Brahms piece draws from czardas, a Hungarian folk

dance. Shafer uses distinctive techniques in his works, with the performers not only working the strings, but also rapping the side of the instrument or tapping the strings. Tickets are $24 for adults and $10 for students and youth and are available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-3745483, kamloopslive. ca. There will also be tickets available at the door.

Nestled in the grasslands of Barnhartvale, it sits at 3,400 feet, 2.5 km long and runs east to west. The lake has two main arms, to the east and west, and two large bays, to the north and south, that each offer unique fishing structures to accommodate a variety of fishing styles. Trollers like to target the deep hole at the east end of the lake, as well as the holes in the middle. With a maximum depth of 22 ft, the holes are shallow enough to make a fish finder valuable.

friends, your company, or just a romantic dinner for two, do yourself a favour and reserve early — that means right now! Why the rush? It’s true that there are still a few weeks before all those Christmas parties begin, but there are plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t procrastinate on this. By looking now for the ideal restaurant, bar, pub, reception hall, or hotel for your party, you’ll have many more possibilities to choose from as you search for a place that will suit your needs. Another advantage of making early reservations is that you’ll be able to choose the nicest room or the best-placed table, an undeniable privilege during this busy time of year when places are snapped up quickly. If you get on the ball now, you won’t end up with the table that no one else wanted, like the one next to the main entrance or the kitchen. Either one of those scenarios are enough to ruin the party mood, whether it’s a romantic dinner for two or a huge reception. If you reserve now, you are more likely to be treated well, as a good customer. One last reason to get busy: if you reserve early, the success of the party is sure to earn you a ton of compliments!

Audi’s A8 TDI shows clean-diesel engines can work well with luxury sedans STORY/B13

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I got to test drive the new 2014 DODGE 1500 LARAMIE. TThis powerful, beautiful truck was fun and amazing to drive, with its new 8 speed transmission, blue LED lights at night, spacious interior, proximity key, heated steering wheel and seats both front and back. I was surprised when I locked the truck it also locks the tailgate and it didn’t have a normal gear shifter, it had a knob that you turned to place it in gear. It had a back up camera but also had alerts when parking, that would notify you when you got too close to something, going forwards or backwards. It had great visibility which made me feel safe while driving. I really enjoyed driving this great truck!

The interior of the 2014 Audi A8 has a premium look and feel to it with all the techno goodies one would expect in a high-end German automobile.

By Lorne Drury wheelstalk.com

I

t used to be that when you spent six figures on a vehicle, you really didn’t care that much about the fuel economy. After all, when you had that much money invested, a few dollars for fuel was a minor consideration. But, those days are gone for most drivers as the price of fuel has risen. Fuel economy is a consideration even for car buyers in the top-end luxury segment for both economic and environmental reasons. For that very reason, the new 2014 diesel version of Audi’s fullsize premium sedan, the A8, is likely to draw plenty of interest. The A8 TDI is powered by a 3.0-litre diesel engine (TDI

stands for turbo direct injection) that makes 240 horse power and 406 pound-feet of torque. It is mated with an eightspeed automatic transmission with tiptronic manual shifting. This is one of three engine options in the A8 that is available in normal- and long-wheelbase versions. A 3.0-litre V6 TFSI direct injection turbo (333 horses 325 pound-feet of torque) and a 4.0litre V8 TFSI direct injection turbo (420 horse power, 444 pound-feet) are the other engines. The latter is the same one used on the S8, but it comes in at 500 horse power and 463 poundfeet of torque in the S8. The A8/S8 sit atop the Audi lineup, facing off in the luxury sedan segment with the BMW 7-series, Jaguar XJ, Porsche Panamera and Mercedes-Benz’

always popular S-Class. All are fine vehicles with lots to offer well-heeled buyers. My wife and I had a chance to drive the A8 to the United States for an annual vacation weekend and, in my opinion, it compares favourably with the latest S-Class that I had a chance to drive at its world launch in Canada a few weeks before. Mercedes-Benz describes its S-Class as the best car in the world so, for the A8 to be compared with it, puts it in prime territory. For anyone who isn’t familiar with the new batch of clean diesel engines available on the market today, this 3.0-litre turbo powerplant in the 2014 A8 is a perfect example of how smooth, quiet and fuel-efficient a diesel can be.

Audi offers plenty of options with new A8 X From B13

While diesel fuel may be more expensive at the pumps, Audi’s gasoline engines take premium unleaded instead of regular, so the price differential tips in the diesel’s favour. Add in the greater fuel efficiency and the TDI option on the A8 becomes even more attractive. The A8 is a big, full-size sedan that weighs in at just under 4,500 pounds, yet we were able to average an under 6.0L/100 km on most of our highway legs. This is quite amazing for a vehicle of this size and a testament to the fuel-efficiency of the diesel engine. Official Transport Canada testing pegs the fuel economy at 8.7L/100 km city and 5.3L/100 km highway. While this turbocharged diesel sips fuel conservatively, it is no slouch in the performance department, thanks in part to the engine’s great low-end grunt that helps propel it from zero to 100 km/h in about 6.5 seconds. Of course, all this would be lost if the car handled like a slug, but that definitely isn’t the case here. Adaptive air suspension is standard and it combines air suspension with a continuously variable damper system to help the car stay firmly planted while still supplying a variety of ride characteristics, from sporty to comfortable, which you can dial up via the Audi Drive Select system. Speed-sensitive power steering and the standard quattro all-wheel drive add to the outstanding driving dynamics. A vehicle playing in the premium sedan sandbox requires an outstanding interior and the Audi A8 has the luxurious look and feel one would expect. It is also extremely comfortable and our drive to Detroit and back was made even more special, thanks to the 22-way comfort sport front seats with pneumatic lumbar support and multicontour. These Valcona leather seats can be heated or cooled and even had a relaxing massage function. This is part of the Comfort Seat Package, a $3,500 option. The rear seat area is extremely spacious and legroom is 984 millimetres in the normal wheelbase version and 1,090 in the long-wheelbase model. The trunk, however, is modest for a car of this size with just 374 litres of luggage space. Priced at $106,000 plus $1,995 freight and PDI, our test vehicle had $12,000 in options over the $93,900 base price. A camera ($700), Sport Package ($3,300), LED headlights with high-beam assist ($2,000) and Driver Assist Package ($2,500) made up the other optional features. The driver-assist package includes adaptive cruise control, lane assist and pre-sense plus, while the sport package includes sport tuned air suspension, sport differential, three spoke heated sport steering wheel with paddle shifters and 20-inch five-spoke wheels. From a technology perspective, the A8 TDI is loaded with neat high-tech goodies like the top view camera for ease of parking, the MMI touchsensitive control panel that can be used to enter letters and numbers, scroll lists and easily move around the navigation maps and a variety of other features. In short, the A8 TDI is an outstanding car in every way and it shows that today’s clean diesel engines are a perfect fit even in top-end luxury sedans such as this.

The A8 is Audi’s flagship luxury sedan and, for 2014, now comes with an available 3.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine.

IIHS introduced its new rating system based on research by the Highway Loss Data Institute indicating forward collision warning and automatic braking systems are helping drivers avoid front-torear crashes. The 2014 Mazda6 features several all-new safety systems under the umbrella known as i-ACTIVSENSE. These technologies use sensing devices such as milliwave radars and cameras to support the driver in recognizing hazards, avoiding collisions and minimizing damage should accidents occur.
