Homicide victim was stabbed six times By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
Torbin Alec stabbed his close friend, Jesse Seymour, six times — including twice directly in the heart — at a house party last summer. So stated the Crown on Monday, Oct. 28, as it laid out its case against the 30-year-old Alec, who is charged with second-degree murder. Seymour, 29, was killed on July 15, 2012, after a fight outside a home at 746 Columbia St. in downtown Kamloops. “A number of friends assembled that night and, in the earlymorning hours, there was a fistfight between Jesse Seymour and Torbin Alec,” special prosecutor Rob Bruneau said in his
opening remarks. “They were, in fact, friends and had known each other a long time. “It’s alleged by the Crown that Mr. Alec took a knife out and stabbed Mr. Seymour six times, twice through the heart area. “Either two of those stabbings, on their own, would have been sufficient to cause death.” Bruneau said Alec then fled the scene and went to his mother’s North Kamloops apartment, where police found him a short time later. “In the apartment, they [police] saw a bucket of bloody water and saw a knife, a blood-covered knife,” Bruneau said. “They seized that knife and it’s alleged that knife was the knife used in the incident.” The start of Alec’s trial was delayed by more than an hour
because of a last-minute decision by Alec’s defence team to switch from a judge-and-jury trial to trial by judge alone. The first day of the trial saw testimony from Dr. John Stefanelli, the forensic pathologist at Royal Inland Hospital who performed Seymour’s autopsy the day after he was murdered. Stefanelli said Seymour was stabbed six times — including twice in the heart and once through the liver. He said Seymour lacked something common in stabbing victims — defence wounds. “The common sights for defence wounds are on the hands or the arms as people throw their hands or arms up to block a blow,” Stefanelli said. “I did not see anything I would

define as a defence wound at all.” Stefanelli also unfolded the knife seized at the time of Alec’s arrest — a five-inch hunting knife — in the courtroom, agreeing that the blade appeared to be consistent with the wounds he saw on Seymour. In his cross-examination of Stefanelli, defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen implied through questioning that Seymour could have been on top of Alec when the wounds were inflicted. The doctor agreed it would have been “awkward” for some of the wounds to have been created, given their characteristics, if Seymour had been lying on his back when he was stabbed. The second day of the trial, today (Oct. 29), is expected to see testimony from a number of
witnesses who were at the house party, as well as from police officers at the scene and a toxicologist who examined Seymour’s blood after his death. Bruneau said the blood was found to have traces of alcohol and drugs. The trial is expected to run into next week, but Bruneau said it might move faster than anticipated because there is no longer a jury. Bruneau, a Kamloops defence lawyer, was appointed special prosecutor on Alec’s file because Seymour was the estranged sonin-law of former B.C. Lt.-Gov. Stephen Point. At the time of Bruneau’s appointment, the B.C. Criminal Justice Branch said the decision was made to avoid any potential perception of improper influence.

Welcome to a new KTW online
A 50-year-old man was taken to Royal Inland Hospital in critical condition following an accident at Hugh Allan Drive and Harrison Way in Aberdeen on Saturday, Oct. 26. This Dodge Ram pickup truck collided with a car, pinning the truck’s driver under his vehicle. Emergency personnel worked to free him from the wreckage. The investigation into the noon accident continues. Allen Douglas photo/KTW
Call to respond to ‘home invasion’ leads to sleepy quartet The caller claimed three masked men carrying shotguns had stormed into a Westmount house. However, when Kamloops Mounties arrived at the Collingwood Drive rental home on Sunday, Oct. 27, they found four residents — two men and two women — and nary a shotgun-toting thug in sight. Sgt. Edward Preto said a caller known to Mounties called police at 8:45 a.m., claiming a trio of armed men had entered the home in the 1500block of Collingwood. When Mounties arrived, they used a loudspeaker to call out the occupants. When there was no response, officers and a police dog entered the house. Preto said officers found the four residents

inside, all of whom said they were asleep and denied any knowledge about a home invasion Preto said the residence is known to police. Mounties found the person who made the call. He claimed he was in the house when he called police, but fled. Mounties continue to investigate why the call was made.
Crash sends man to hospital Police are investigating an accident that left one driver pinned under his vehicle on Saturday, Oct. 26, on Hugh Allan Drive. A westbound Dodge Ram pickup hit an eastbound vehicle in front of Kamloops Seniors Village, 1220 Hugh Allan Dr., and the impact caused the truck to flip onto its side. Emergency personnel found the 50-year-old driver pinned with his head between the passengerside door and the road.
Is there a charge for drunk walking? Two people have been ticketed under the Motor Vehicle Act after they walked into traffic on the Tans-Canada Highway and caused an accident. The incident took place near the B.C. Wildlife Park on the night of Saturday, Oct. 26, when two people, both of whom Kamloops RCMP said were drunk at the time, wandered onto the highway. An eastbound vehicle that had to brake suddenly to avoid hitting the pair was hit by a second car. Police said no one was injured. The two pedestrians were issued tickets for failing to walk on the left side of the highway, facing traffic.

KAMMERCE PROMOTIONS PRESENTS
Expect more Ajax info By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
Expect more information about the medical professionâ€™s take on Ajax to be released in the coming weeks. Thatâ€™s the message from Jill Calder, spokeswoman for Kamloops Physicians for a Healthy Environment (KPHA), which last week released a damning statement, obtained through a freedom of information request, on the controversial proposed mining project Calder said her group is combing through stacks of documents, noting the initial release â€” a quote from a June 2012 email in which Dr. Peter Barss, former Interior Health Authority medical-health officer, called Ajax â€œa serious public-health hazardâ€? and called for the province to â€œremove it from further
City budget talk tonight The first public meeting on the cityâ€™s budget will take place tonight (Oct. 29) at 7 p.m. at Interior Savings Centre. This yearâ€™s meetings will be held in a workshop-style format. This yearâ€™s focus is on city service levels and residents can share with city councillors and staff thoughts on service levels across a broad spectrum of areas. Tonightâ€™s public meeting will be followed by a daytime session on Monday, Nov. 4, at 11:30 a.m., at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre. Residents can follow online and add to the debate by going to Twitter and using the #kamloopsbudget hashtag. To view budgetmeeting documents , go online to kamloops. ca/2014budget. Input from these public meetings will be presented to city council on Tuesday, Nov. 26, prior to the introduction of the five-year financial plan.
considerationâ€? â€” is just a sample of the information. â€œWeâ€™re working through them to make sure we have context,â€? she said, adding her group has also appealed a number of redactions, which are now being reviewed. â€œWe have asked for completion of the conversational loop.â€? According to KPHA, Barssâ€™ comments were contained in an email to Dr. Perry Kendall, B.C.â€™s chief medical-health officer. He was calling on Kendall to make use of a section of B.C.â€™s Public Health Act that would have seen the project deemed a health hazard. Dr. Andrew Larder, Interior Healthâ€™s senior medical-health officer, said that would have been an inappropriate use of the section. â€œHe made that recog-
nition and then got feedback,â€? Larder said. â€œMy feedback continued to be it was really not an appropriate section to be using at that time.â€? Larder said the section is only for alreadypresent or impending hazards, not speculative ones based on opinion. At the time of the email, Barss was part of a four-person IHA team looking at the Ajax project from a public-health perspective. He was removed from that position, by Larder, shortly after the email was sent. Larder would not say whether the email or Barssâ€™ opinions on Ajax had anything to do with Barss being removed from the post, calling it â€œa personnel issue.â€? â€œIt was, and certainly remains, Dr. Barssâ€™ opinion,â€? he said. â€œAnd it stimulated
debate within Interior Health as far as what will be the approach with Ajax.â€? Larder said Barssâ€™ comments were based on Barssâ€™ personal opinion â€” not that of the IHA. â€œInterior Healthâ€™s position is that weâ€™re not at a stage in the process where we can come to a conclusion of what the outcome of this mine could be,â€? he said. Calder said the documents KPHA obtained through FOI show the medical communityâ€™s concerns about the mine, which proponent KGHM Ajax wishes to create immediately south of Aberdeen. â€œWeâ€™re still working through a stack of documents,â€? Calder said. â€œBut, it indicates to us that there were grave concerns from our profession to the project even last year.â€?

TUESDAY, October 29, 2013
The $6.3 million the provincial government spent in helping create the NorKam Trades Centre of Excellence doesn’t mean a replacement for South Kamloops secondary is low priority. Premier Christie Clark, in Kamloops for several events on Thursday, Oct. 24, said it’s up to the KamloopsThompson school district to make the case for money to rebuild the 61-year-old structure trustees have heard is no longer adequate. Clark, speaking to
the media at the official launch of the renovated Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre in Aberdeen, told KTW the district will have to make a case the need is there, After that, Clark said, the request will be assessed along with all other funding submissions. The KamloopsThompson board of education has been told it will cost about $43 million to replace South Kamloops secondary and school district Supt. Terry Sullivan said local MLAs will be lobbied for support when the board is ready to make its pitch. Meanwhile, Clark, who spoke about jobs and the economy during
her remarks to the crowd at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre, praised owner Ron Mundi as an example of people working to create jobs and boost their economy. Mundi, who bought the hotel in 2011, said he has put $25 million into the venture, including the $9-million renovation celebrated with music, food stations and a conference centre packed with local business representatives. Fred Legace, managing director at the Kamloops Airport, said the renovations have turned the facility into the kind of venue visitors expect to find when they
come to Kamloops. The renovation included updating the 202 rooms, expanding the front entrance, redesigning the lobby, improving the conference space and upgrading landscaping. Charlie Bruce, president of the 2013 B.C. Seniors Games held earlier this year in Kamloops, said the hotel was host for participants at the Games. While still under renovation, Bruce said athletes and their families were “very impressed” with the hotel. Mike Miltimore of Lee’s Music noted the conference centre is “brighter and, in terms of
the aesthetics, it’s nice. The light reflects off the walls and it will be good for events. It’s an excellent room.”

Premier: Make case for South Kam
Clark says she has not been questioned by RCMP Premier Christy Clark said she and her staff have not been questioned by the RCMP as part of its investigation into whether laws were broken by the B.C. Liberal government’s strategy to entice ethnic voters to support the party in the run-up to the May provincial election. Asked during a media session at the Coast Kamloops Hotel, where Clark was helping celebrate a grand opening following
a renovation, the premier replied with a simple, “No,” and nothing more. The probe, which involves a special prosecutor, was announced last month and comes as a result of a letter sent to the RCMP by NDP Leader Adrian Dix. The government plan was leaked by the NDP in March and led to the resignation of Kim Haakstad, former deputy chief of staff for Clark, and Brian Bonney,
former communications director for multiculturalism. John Yap also stepped down as minister responsible for multiculturalism. A report by John Dyble, deputy minister to the premier, concluded the province’s Public Service Standards of Conduct had been violated from “passive participation to active leadership and execution of clearly inappropriate actions.”

Rallying for a better road By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER
Several dozen people took a walk up Todd Road on Friday, Oct. 25. It’s a trip they take often, walking to the community park or up to R.L. Clemitson elementary. This time, however, they weren’t worried about cars whipping by them at speeds much higher than posted on Barnhartvale Road. Accompanying them were representatives of BCAA, city staff, city councillors and RCMP officers. Councillors were there to see firsthand the situation, said Coun. Nelly Dever, who was also there in her capacity of acting mayor.
Kamloops a Bloom champion
BCAA’s “guardian angels” were there with their halos, wings and road signs declaring the area a place where children play. Earlier this year, BCAA declared Todd to be one of the 10 worst roads in the province and the only Kamloops stretch on the list. City staff were there because they know organizers of the event will be going to budget meetings, pitching a proposal to upgrade the route. And residents were there because they want something done to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders who use it every day. Organizer Christine Watson said she was delighted with the turn-
out, noting there were residents at the event she had never met. She plans to raise the issue at one of the two upcoming budget meetings (the first will be held at Interior Savings Centre at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29) and will also pursue her discussion with Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone — also the province’s transportation minister — about doing something to make the road safer. Dever said she has never received a complaint about the road but, in her remarks to the group, noted Coun. Pat Wallace has spoken often about safety there. Dever told KTW she was impressed with the turnout and was looking

forward to walking with the group. She noted, however, Barnhartvale is a rural area and many people move there for that rustic environment that includes a lack of sidewalks and curbs. Colleen Lepik, the city’s transportation coordinator, said her department has made some changes in the area to try to reroute pedestrian and riding traffic off Todd, adding some gravel pathways to areas and creating drop-off and pick-up zones at R.L. Clemitson elementary. She said speed-reader boards have been placed in the area in the past to notify drivers of their speed and will be back some time next month in the area of the school.
Kamloops bested communities in Ontario, England and South Korea. Kamloops has previously been the winner of several Communities in Bloom competitions. Meanwhile, Kamloops will host the Communities in Bloom competition in 2015, having been awarded the event on the weekend.

The Grube remains an oasis of educational support
RIGINALLY OPENED as a school in 1968, Overlander elementary saw several transformations before becoming the Henry Grube Education Centre in 1991. At one time, the building was used as a district school for special-education students to learn personal skills, in addition to classes on cooking and housekeeping. When special-needs students were integrated into regular classes, the building was no longer used as a school. Since then, the “Grube” has graduated to become a meeting centre, a resource hub and home to student-support specialists. The centre houses the district library, where more than 8,400 new items are catalogued each year. This is where kits for classroom units are carefully inspected, refilled and sent out. Teachers can find equipment and class kits for almost any topic — from rock samples and hobbits to the life cycle of a chicken; from stethoscopes and drums to snowshoes. Totes full of books, science equipment and instruments are constantly flowing in and out. The centre’s print shop produces posters, banners, booklets, certificates, forms and all of the district’s formal reports. Almost any type of resource or printed material that a school might need comes from the Henry Grube Education Centre.
KATHLEEN KARPUK View from the
SCHOOL BOARD In addition to resources, district curriculum co-ordinators are available to provide support to their teacher colleagues in areas such as literacy, numeracy, fine arts, earlychildhood education, aboriginal education, language and technology — just to name a few. Supportive workshops developed by the curriculum co-ordinators are designed to teach new ideas, share information and spark enthusiasm. Curriculum co-ordinators are the go-to people for information and help in each of their subject areas and their passion is contagious. It’s not just teachers that meet here. On average, the centre sees 150 groups, about 3,000 people, using the meeting facilities each month. Meeting rooms are equipped with smart boards and videoconferencing equipment, which allow groups to conduct professional development and connect throughout the district and across the world. The classrooms in the former
school have been set up as office spaces for student-support specialists. Most of the centre’s professionals don’t spend much time at their desks — they’re in the schools working with children, families and teachers to provide support. Services are provided for visual and hearing impairments, drug and alcohol counseling, family counseling, English as a second language, mental health and support for children in hospital. The Kamloops-Thompson school district has five school and family consultants, four behaviourresource teachers, eight speechand-language pathologists, five school psychologists and nine special-education consultants and resource teachers. Barnaby the therapy dog also works out of the centre. The Henry Grube Education Centre is a valuable resource to our district. In an era of neverending cutbacks, it’s nice to know this district still finds comprehensive and meaningful ways to provide support to students, teachers and staff.

Critics dismiss it as a spectacle organized to make it appear as though residents actually have a say in how the city spends their dollars. Supporters note Kamloops is far ahead of many B.C. communities in having the public get involved in the budget process. Regardless which side of the debate you find yourself on, the city will nevertheless begin the next budget process tonight (Oct. 29) with a public-input session in the Parkside Lounge at Interior Savings Centre. The format tonight (and at a Nov. 4 daytime session at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre) is workshopstyle, so residents attending should have better access to staff and city council members and, theoretically, ample opportunity to ask questions and offer suggestions. The theme tonight is service levels — this is your chance to tell council and staff how often you feel trash should be picked up, when and how snow should be removed, whether recreational-facility hours of operation can be revamped to better serve the public and save the city some money. If it involves a service the city provides to you for a cost, tonight and Nov. 4 are your opportunities to give your input. According to the city, these public-information sessions will help form the final budget, to be approved by council next spring. There are property-tax increases in Kamloops every year. Do you have an idea to curtail the ever-increasing amount of money travelling from your pocket to city hall? If so, grab a jacket and head down to ISC tonight.

Re: Mental Health Matters column: : Misunderstanding mental illness — again: “To quote the column: ‘Australia, Great Britain and Japan banned personal ownership of many types of weapons in the 1970s and 1980s after mass shootings occurred in their countries. ‘They have not had a single mass shooting since that time, although it would be ludicrous to say there is no more mental illness in those places.’ “This statement is false. “There have been mass shootings in Britain and Australia after the 1980s. “In fact, the latest in Britain was in 2010, when 12 people were killed and 11 people were injured. “Thirty-five people were killed and 24 people were injured in Australia’s Port Arthur shooting in 1996.” — posted by Billy
About those Kamloops city council pay raises . . . Editor: I wish all of us who work in the real world could “vote” to raise our wages whenever we wanted. I also see councillors are signalling their interest in reducing the tax burden for heavy industry, which would mean passing on that burden to taxpayers. Just how deep does council think our pockets are? Could I please take back my city councillor vote? I see now I made a mistake. Gloria Goode Kamloops
Editor: Coun. Donovan Cavers blames others for his not being able to create a financial foundation in his life to purchase a first home. Why did he run for council? Is it the taxpayers’ responsibility to provide a living wage for a volunteer position? Is it the taxpayers’ responsibility to financially supplement and offset the career choices of council members? If the catering business doesn’t provide the right income or time allowance required by a council position, perhaps a retooling of priorities is in order. Is it the taxpayers’ problem some council members feel overwhelmed by the workload of the position? Have all these truths ever been hidden from those running for office? No. Maybe it is good this wage and time-commitment matter is coming out now for others to ponder before running for office in the next election. For the effort and time put into council positions, remuneration is never enough. We run for office to do good works — some do it for ego, some from the heart. Don’t get it? Then don’t run (again). Dennis Paget Kamloops
Editor: The pay raise voted in by an incomplete number of council members present for voting is too much. The matter should be voted on again when all council members are present. If I were younger, I would run for council but, when I was younger, I did not because I knew I did not have enough time and income to invest to do a good job. I find it atrocious that these raises are voted in when councillors fully knew remuneration and benefits (none) when they ran for office. Comparisons to other communities is not valid research as other cities have many more or other problems not comparable to Kamloops. As a senior, I am struggling to keep up with ever-increasing taxation for various items approved by city council. These increases will eventually force me out of my home since my OAP and CPP do not go up by the huge percentage enjoyed by city council. Sigi White Kamloops
Chase cannot afford proposed pellet plant Editor: All citizens of Chase need to wake up. Most residents know about the proposed rezoning and industrialization of certain properties within town limits. But, many are not aware of the extent to which it could affect each and every resident if approved. In a misguided attempt to bring in a few more tax dollars, Chase city council is considering putting at risk our peaceful and healthy lifestyle. For the sake of a handful of jobs, we will become subject to land, air and water pollution. No one is immune from the effects of pollution. It knows no boundaries. The low cloud cover that commonly covers the Chase area, especially in the winter, will contain and distribute industrial emissions and carcinogenic diesel residues. This will not just be from the proposed pellet factory, but from the increased truck and train traffic required to service this industry. The increased constant noise and fall-

out could devalue many homes by hundreds of thousands of dollars. This in turn would bring down the value of all of our homes. Can we afford to let this happen? There are even rumours of a lawsuit being filed against city council for allowing and encouraging this. The dirty track record of the pellet industry is not hard to find. The files of complaints of pollution and the industry’s unwillingness or inability to clean up its messes are readily available. During recent interviews with business owners that neighbour the current pellet operations in Williams Lake, it was revealed that the industry has done nothing to rectify the problems it creates. Consider the fallout of sawdust particulates into the surrounding river and lake, onto our homes and on our landscape. Proponents can say they are “state-of the-art” all they want, but I don’t buy it. The Titanic was also considered stateof-the-art. It means nothing. The sentiment that Chase is dying is not true. The population of Chase in 2001

was 2,460. Today, it is 2,600. Just because a few businesses have failed does not mean we are on the road to destruction. Furthermore, the introduction of a small number of jobs is not going to make any appreciable difference to our economic situation. Unfortunately for our businesses, we live close to large shopping centres and their prices are very attractive. This is not going to change. We are a retirement/bedroom community and, apparently, there are more of us as the population continues to increase. I implore residents of this small and caring community to pull together. We must protect each other and say no to the proposed rezoning and the introduction of industry so close to our homes. You can write to the Chase village office at Box 440 or call 250-679-3238. Make your voices heard. You may be the next one who needs help. Ellen Blackburn Chase

Conscience leads to plea After living with a guilty conscience for a decade, a Kamloops man has avoided jail after admitting to a sexual assault he committed in 2003. Brett Lindsay pleaded guilty to sexual touching, an offence stemming from an incident that took place while he was babysitting in Fort acMurray, Alta., 10 years ago. The 29-year-old’s sentencing took place on Thursday, Oct. 24. Crown prosecutor Frank Caputo said Lindsay was babysitting a nine-year-old girl at the time. Lindsay was handed a 12-month conditionalsentence order, followed by a year-long probation term.

WE ARE THE NORTH SHORE
The Jackal’s journey By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
VEN IF The Jackal is tamed, left a bloody mess in the ring, there’s no need to sulk back to Kamloops, tail planted firmly between legs. There’s always tomorrow for Jason Szakal, one of Tom LaRoche’s fighters — and his future didn’t always look so bright. “Tom’s like a second father to me. I have no idea what life would look like without him and the gym,” said Szakal, who remembers the first day he walked into LaRoche World Gung Fu and Kickboxing. “I was having family troubles. We’ll leave it at that. I’ve been coming here basically every day for just coming up on five years. It’s been a second home.” The time spent sweating under the scrutiny of LaRoche, a fourtime world kickboxing champion, has already paid off for Szakal, who holds two national titles — the middleweight Canadian Sport
Muay Thai belt and the 75-kilogram Sanda championship. Next up is the biggest test of his career. The Jackal, his moniker when the bell rings, is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the World Wushu Championships, which get underway on Saturday, Nov. 2. He’ll be competing in his weight class for the world Sanda championship. The tournamentstyle competition will feature fighters from about 100 countries. Szakal has become the proverbial carrot LaRoche dangles in front of his new recruits — and a Grade A example of the good his gym can do. “We’re right smackdab in the middle of North Kamloops and I believe we’re here for a reason,” said LaRoche, whose martial-arts centre is located at 1110 Tranquille Rd. “Jason could have gone the other way. There’s so much potential for drugs and all the other crap that’s out there. “His training helped give him that focus, bringing him into a

positive atmosphere and helping him get through that challenging time.” Szakal was living alone in an apartment when he was 15 — “That was a wake-up call,” he said — when LaRoche got a hold of him.
It didn’t take long before he was turning off the lights on his new apprentice, kicking Szakal out of the gym and forcing him to knock off for the night. Those long evenings would remind LaRoche of his own martial-arts
upbringing, travelling most weekends to Vancouver from Princeton to train in an empty lot with a local gung-fu instructor. “It was almost like a movie,” LaRoche said. “And that’s when Bruce Lee’s Enter the

Dragon came out and the hit show Kung Fu was on TV. “As a teenager, we experimented with our stuff. My wife knows my stories but, along the way, people come along and impact you. That’s why I can recognize and
see it in my students.” In 1976, LaRoche moved to the River City and began training at a Briar Avenue gym with Barry Adkins, the next person who steered him away from what he calls “the dark path.” X See LaROCHE A16

T’S AN EXCITING TIME FOR THE KAMLOOPS NORTH SHORE BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION AS WE CELEBRATE 25 YEARS OF COMMUNITY BUILDING AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT. The North Shore is about community — it always has been and it always will be.

We have plenty of fun events this fall and winter. On Halloween, participating North Shore businesses will be welcoming little ghosts and goblins for our first annual Treat Street. It takes place from 3
STEVEN PUHALLO Executive director NSBIA p.m. to 5 p.m. and is a great opportunity for families who want to do trickor-treating in the daylight hours between the end of the school day and dinner time. Check out the listing in this section for more information. If you are a nonprofit or business, we are bringing some of North America’s top think-
ers to our Social Media Bootcamp on Nov. 16. In partnership with the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and the North Shore-based Kamloops Innovation Centre, it’s a great event to learn from the best on how to start or expand your social media footprint. We want to give a special thanks to the great North Shore community, which is rallying behind the businesses who have been affected by the delays in the Tranquille Road upgrades.

Mayfair building joins RiverBend community RiverBend Seniors Community is welcoming a new addition to the family in July 2014. The Mayfair building is expected to be completed then, joining the already existing RiverBend Suites and Manor. “The biggest thing I think you’ll find if you talk to residents is the sense of community,” said Kate Calhoun, who handles sales and rentals at RiverBend and Mayfair. “They belong somewhere. They have neighbours and friends that they’ve made in the building.” More than 50 per cent of the suites at Mayfair have already been sold. There are rental options available in the
RiverBend building. “The first thing we talk about is what you want,” Calhoun said. “Do you want to prepare your own meals or are you done cooking? “Then we talk about budget. Not everybody’s got $1,400 a month for a one-bedroom or $2,000 plus utilities for a twobedroom.” There are Manor portions in both buildings that focus on a different market, based on income. Those units don’t have kitchens or in-suite laundry, both features included in most other RiverBend and Mayfair suites. “RiverBend is focused at independent seniors,” Calhoun said of the 55-plus facility.
“They have absolute independence in their apartment, but they can take advantage of the meals and the services provided in the community on a casual basis or on a regular basis. It’s up to them.” There are programs available each day for seniors. “We have an activity director,” Calhoun said. “They go to the activity club. They play bingo. They play bridge. They play crib. They get exercise. “They don’t have to leave if they don’t want to, which is lovely in the winter.” For more information, go online to theriverbend. ca or call Calhoun at 250682-4378.

“He couldn’t kick me out of the gym,” LaRoche said. “Those were the influences for me.” The Chinese gung-fu master takes a no-nonsense approach toward substance abuse. “I’m very strict at my gym,” LaRoche said. “If I know people are doing stuff, I confront them with it. “Yeah, we teach them fighting and all that, but really what we want to do is provide a positive atmosphere for the kids.” The talkative instructor was proud to hear Szakal refer to him as a father-like figure — an influence like the ones he had growing up. “That’s how I feel about Jason, too,” LaRoche said. “I know his dad really well and he says, ‘You’re like another dad to him.’ He knows that.” There are students who slip through the cracks,

LaRoche admitted: “It’s kind of like a parent whose kids are out doing the wrong stuff, but I have a limited role. A lot of times parents come in with the kids and say, ‘Do something with them because I can’t.’ You do what you can.” He chooses to focus on the success stories, like Szakal, who right about now is Malaysia’s biggest bag of nerves. “I’d describe the feeling before fighting as being really anxious,” Szakal said. “I don’t really know what the level of competition is going to be.

Hannah and Isaac Levi, Venetians in exile, have set up a new life for themselves in Constantinople. Isaac runs a newly established business in the growing silk trade, while Hannah, the best midwife in all of Constantinople, plies her trade within the opulent palace of Sultan Murat III, tending to the thousand women of his lively and infamous harem. But one night, when Hannah is unexpectedly summoned to the palace, sheâ€™s confronted with Leah, a poor Jewish peasant girl who has been abducted and sold into the sultanâ€™s harem. The sultan favours her as his next conquest and wants her to produce his heir, but the girl just wants to return to her home and the only life she has ever known. What will Hannah do? Will she risk her life and livelihood to protect this young girl, or will she retain her high esteem in the eye of the sultan?

Senator Speaks to the Power of Personal Resolve School of Business & Economics
Former Olympian and Conservative Kamloops Senator Nancy Greene Raine spoke to students and faculty members at Thompson Rivers University during the second Business Kickstart 101 Deanâ€™s Speaker Series event on October 9. Business Kickstart 101 consists of 20 exciting events that bring students and employers together for networking and learning opportunities.
â€œI liked how inspiring she was. It was great to hear from a woman whoâ€™s been so successful in life.â€? ANASTASIA KUECHLER TRU STUDENT
Network. Learn. Be mentored. Win! ONE PROGRAMâ€”MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES The Canadian Press named Raine female athlete of the 20th century and she won gold and silver medals at the Grenoble Olympics in 1968. Throughout her nine-year skiing career, Raine won 17 Canadian championship titles. Currently, Raine works to promote the development of ski tourism in British Columbia. She is the director of skiing AT3UN0EAKS AN/FjCEROFTHE/RDER of Canada, a member of Canadaâ€™s Sports Hall of Fame, Senator, and Chancellor Emerita of TRU. â€œ Iâ€™m pleased to be a guest speaker,â€? said Raine.
Raineâ€™s talk was broadcast live to the business schoolâ€™s on-line MBA students across the country. Raine spoke to the parallels between the sports industry and the business industry. â€œ To win the Olympics I needed to set a goal and develop little steps to reach that goal,â€? said Raine. â€œThis is the same in the business world.â€? Raine stressed the importance of having goals that will eventually lead TOLIFEFULjLLMENT â€œ In order to be happy with yourself, you have to ask yourself what success means to you,â€? said Raine. â€œItâ€™s not
about the fame and money; itâ€™s about the people you meet along the way.â€? Raine added that one of the most valuable things she learned during her skiing career was how to focus and put in effort and hard work. TRU student Anastasia Kuechler said it was interesting to listen to Raine talk about her success. To get involved in Business Kickstart 101, contact John Zubak at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Caribbean ﬂavour to Nov. 9 fundraiser Years ago, a Canadian teacher met Gail Morong’s sister and helped her leave her native Trinidad and come to Canada for an education. A few years later, Morong’s sister returned to help her make the same trip. And, now, the TRU instructional designer is again paying the opportunity forward — with a bit of a twist. Morong said she met a young woman at TRU, also from the Caribbean and not from a family with a lot of disposable income to put into the woman’s education. Nevertheless, she had saved, complied with all the requirements to be an international student at Thompson Rivers University and was well into her studies when she became ill, was hospitalized and had emergency surgery. She missed classes, bills piled up and, because there are restrictions on when and where international students can work, she found it difficult to find a parttime job to provide some income, eventually — once her health
returned — finding work at a fast-food restaurant. The student, however, needs some money to take two courses needed to finish her education so, Morong said, she’s putting the skills she learned together with the women’s common bond of the Caribbean and cooking up some of her culture’s food for a fundraising dinner on Saturday, Nov. 9, at Southwest Community Church, 700 Hugh Allan Dr., from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The evening includes entertainment by the Campbell Sisterz in Clearwater. But, Morong said, the focus is the food, something she suspects a lot of Kamloopsians haven’t had much opportunity to partake of at most restaurants in the city. She said she’s also involved because sometimes it’s good to see the person who will benefit from a charitable donation, to connect and immediately understand how offering a hand up may be all a person needs. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for students, $10 for those seven to 12
years of age and free for youngsters. For more information, to make a donation
or order tickets, email Morong at gailmorong@ hotmail.com or call 250682-1712.

Seeing double — WolfPack sweep provincials By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
AMLOOPS has two university soccer teams of which it can be proud. The TRU WolfPack men’s and women’s footy squads will be heading next month to the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) championships after winning provincial titles in Nanaimo on Sunday, Oct. 27. TRU’s men won a thrilling 2-1 victory in penalty kicks over the Douglas College Royals of New Westminster in the Pacific Western Athletic Association
championship game. The WolfPack women won gold by blanking the Quest Kermodes of Squamish 1-0 in the title tilt. Co-head coaches Sean Wallace and John Antulov will bring their charges to St. John, N.B., for the CCAA tournament, which gets underway on Nov. 6. Meanwhile, WolfPack women’s bench boss Tom McManus and his team will be competing for a national title in Surrey. For the first time in school history, both the men’s and women’s teams will be heading in the same year to the Canadian championship. Next season, the pro-
grams are making the jump to the Canadian Interuniversity Sports ranks.
The men’s story With the championship on the line, Ashley Raynes was money in the bank. The midfielder from Manchester, England, stepped up to the penalty spot knowing a goal would seal victory for the Pack. He made no mistake, firing a low shot past the Royals’ goalkeeper, sending the WolfPack into a frenzy. Raynes also scored TRU’s goal in regulation time. The WolfPack were forced to overcome
adversity when PacWest player of the year Justin Wallace of Kamloops was injured in a 2-1 semifinal win over the host Vancouver Island University Mariners. He was in the hospital on Sunday after undergoing surgery to repair a bleeding spleen, an injury suffered on a play that showed “a lack of respect and well-being for another player,” according to Sean Wallace,
Justin’s father. TRU went down to 10 men at about the 50-minute mark of Sunday’s final when midfielder Brandon Mendez was ruled to have intentionally stepped on an opponent. He was shown a red card. Douglas tied the match in the 65th minute, but TRU and goalkeeper Travis Froehlich were able to shut the door the rest of the way. Three WolfPack players earned awards. Froehlich was named the tournament’s best goalie, River City product Braeden Burrows was the playoff MVP and Nolan Wallace, also of Kamloops, was the
top defender. Justin Wallace is expected to remain in hospital in Victoria until the middle of the week. He will not be available to play at nationals, but he will travel with the team. “This was a team effort and I have to commend the boys for digging down and coming up with a solid effort,” Sean Wallace said.
The women’s story TRU put a 5-1 beating on Langara College of Vancouver in the semifinal, but ran into a much more game opponent in Quest in the gold-medal match. Swirling winds made it tough for either team
to produce offence on Sunday. Katie Sparrow of Kamloops scored for the WolfPack in the 38th minute and the goal held up. Laura Smylie, who scored a hat-trick in the semifinal victory, was named the tournament MVP, with Alanna Bekkering, also from Kamloops, earning top midfielder honours. “The girls did what they had to do,” McManus said. “The conditions were similar to what we faced at last year’s nationals in P.E.I. — a howling wind. But, the girls were smart and efficient and did their job.” — with files from TRU

ESSE JONES ISN’T NATURALLY A competitive person, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning to enjoy himself next month when he hits the stage in Niagara Falls as a national finalist in this year’s Senior Star competition. After all, there’s a live band to work with.
“The producer and I are working out an arrangement by email, sending charts back and forth,” Jones told KTW prior to heading to Ontario. For the first round of the competition, he’d backed his performance of Georgia on my Mind, made famous by Ray Charles, himself on his keyboard. Senior Star, put on by the Chartwell Retirement Residences, follows the model of most modern
singing competitions with an agerelated twist. While competitors don’t have to live at a Chartwell residence, they do have to be 65 or older. They’re also allowed to compete as singers, musicians or both. Sharon Henderson, Chartwell’s vice-president of communication, said the seven-year-old contest was first dreamed up when the company was looking for a way to celebrate seniors’ month.
“We thought, why not celebrate seniors who typically — it was sort of in the heyday of the American Idol, Canadian Idol — who typically aren’t involved in those kind of open competitions,” she said. “We wanted to create a stage for any age, so to speak, and give an opportunity to seniors who had either been performers their entire lives or some people who will say, ‘I’ve only even sung in the shower.’” Jones definitely falls into the first category. A longtime professional musician, Jones worked in radio and television, played in bands and spent years touring as a self-described “lounge lizard.” When he gave up touring and later moved to Kamloops in the mid-1990s, Jones took on a job teaching vocals at Long and McQuade, where he still has nearly 40 students.
He also spent three years judging the Kamloops Senior Star before friends convinced him to step to the other side of the microphone in 2013. But, though all that, there’s been little in the way of competition. “One of the questions they asked us on our questionnaire for the national was ‘what do you feel or expectt from this thing?’” Jones said. “And I said, I’m not really sure. It’s a whole new venue for me to be a contestant. The last time I was a contestant I was in my early teens and did vocal for festivals.” Contestants for the national round of Senior Star, which takes place on Nov. 5, are selected from 45 regional competitions which take place across the country. A panel of celebrity judges, including performer Gordie Tapp and musical theatre actress Patsy Gallant, look over top-two finish-

ers from each competition and select 10 favourites to make the trip to the final round. “This is an amazing night,” said Henderson. “It’s black tie, gala performance. It’s taped and broadcast on national television. “We produce a DVD. And the first-place winner wins $5,000.” The competition has been good to Kamloops performers in the past. In 2009, vocalist Jeann Rodrigue took home the national prize. Jones isn’t so concerned with following in her footsteps, but said he’s looking forward to meeting his fellow performers and hitting the stage on the big night. “I compete against myself,” he said. “If you’re signing, that’s great. I’m all for you singing. I don’t compete. So I can’t go into it looking at it like it’s a competition. I’m going into it looking at it like it’s an opportunity to sing for myself.”

She’s loathe to reveal the plot — “I want it to be a bit of a secret” — but said the goal is to make her audience feel like they’re going back to when they were six or seven years old “and everything was possible.” The medium is new to the theatre-arts student but it’s one she’s wanted to learn more about and the festival, a new presentation by Western Canada Theatre, gives her the chance to do so. The festival is a series of short new works being performed at Pavilion Theatre beginning on Wednesday, Oct. 30, and continuing Friday, Nov. 1, and Saturday, Nov. 2, at 8 p.m. Other acts include: • Sleep No More . . . The Musical, 15 minutes of “interactive Hitchcockian, Shakespearean, noir fusion Broad musical,” according to its description at the WCT website, wctlive.ca. It is directed by Robin Nichol and Heidi Verwey, with stage managers Allison Clow and Christine Leroux and starring Alicia Ashcroft and Dan Ondang. • Penned, a 10-minute solo journey into a tiny,
whimsical world of words created by Heather Cant. • Oceanna: The Ugly Mermaid, a five-minute play written by Ashcroft and its actor, Sheanna Beau James. It is described as a glimpse at the Sea of Atlantis courtesy of a Coney Island side show. • Ballad of the Burning Lady, 13 minutes of coexistence between the audience and actors/creators Kirk Smith and Mack Gordon in a room after a crime has been committed in Kamloops in 1905. • To Do, created by Amy Baskin and Anita Wittenberg, with Baskin directing and Wittenberg acting. It’s about a dozen minutes of lists and tasks and trying to get life into sync, knowing in the end, there will still be work left to do. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for seniors and students. They are available at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca.

Notes on: Blackdaze ■ WHO: Darren Jones on bass, Richard Graham on vocals and drums, his brother Russell on vocals and Todd Flodstrom on guitar. ■ WHAT: An Ozzy Osbourne/Black Sabbath tribute band. ■ WHEN: The band got together about two years ago, but really started to kick it up about 18 months ago. ■ WHERE: They play a lot of gigs in the city and throughout B.C. — Village Green Hotel in Vernon, the Shark Club in Vancouver, for example — but the band members are stoked about their upcoming free Halloween show at the Rock ‘N Firkin Sports Pub and Grill, 726 Sydney Ave. ■ WHY: Well, that’s where it gets interesting. The four knew each other from previous bands, other bands they’d heard of and the simple tightness of Kamloops’ music community. When they started, Jones said, they all contributed songs they thought should be on their set lists “and, of
the 20 songs we decided on, we realized more than half were either Ozzy or Black Sabbath.” Thus, a tribute band was created, one that, courtesy of their “crazy gear-hoarding sound man” Paul Cuthbert, is a huge show with lights, lasers and costumes to create a show featuring the music Osbourne’s bandmate Tony Iommi once declared would be heavier than Led Zeppelin. Jones said the discography to choose from has so many songs it’s hard to know what to include, but Blackdaze tries to do all the hits. “The fans are totally into it,” Jones said, “and they’re all diehard fans and they know all the songs so we just play as much as we can.” ■ HOW: You can find out more about the band on its Facebook page, by searching Blackdaze on Facebook, or by doing the same on YouTube. Notes On is a feature that focuses on local musicians. To be added to the roster in coming publications, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

FREDERICK BROADHURST JOYCE 8 January, 1941 - 23 October, 2013 It is with regret that the passing of Fred Joyce is announced. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Fred came to BC via Edmonton. Graduating from West Van High School in 1959 Fred initially went into banking. He met and married his ﬁrst wife Betty when at the Castlegar branch of the Bank of Montreal. They had one son Steven. Opening his own business in Kamloops, FB Joyce Trucking, he ran a successful asphalt transport business until 1988 following Betty’s death. Fred then moved into transportation of petroleum products for Chevron and West Can prior to retiring. Fred married Dorothy in 1991. He will be sorely missed by Dorothy and his 4-legged buddies – Brandy, Missy, Abbie and PussPuss. No service at Fred’s request. If friends desire there will be an open house at Fred’s home on Saturday, November 2, 2013 between 2 and 4 for a time of fellowship and memory sharing. In lieu of ﬂowers donations can be made to the SPCA in Fred’s memory Schoenings Funeral Service 250-374-1454 www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Her Journey’s Just Begun Don’t think of her as gone away, Her journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets, This earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, From the sorrows and the tears, In a place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing, That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness, Can really pass away. And think of her as living, In the hearts of those she touched, For nothing loved is ever lost; And she was loved so much. E. Brenneman

HOME AND GARDEN
Time to get your lawn ready for winter And don’t forget your house, either Preparing your lawn for a Canadian winter can be a tricky business, even for the most-experienced gardener. Follow these three tips early in the fall and watch the fruits of your labour blossom after a long, cold winter: • Top-dress your lawn with a thin layer of compost or good garden soil and add grass seed appropriate to your lawn condition and local growing area. This will help to regenerate your lawn and take care of any thinned-out areas. Mix the compost into the existing soil before seeding or laying sod, or spread it in a thin layer raked over the existing lawn. • Over-seeding, or regularly spreading grass seed on your lawn, will ensure it remains dense. Keep the new seed well-watered until the
new grass is established • Fertilizing promotes vigorous growth the following spring. Clippings left on the lawn are rich in nitrogen and provide free and easy fertilization. Make sure you spread fertilizers evenly
and thinly to avoid clumps. A healthy lawn reduces the need to apply pesticides for the control of weeds and insect pests. More information on this topic is available from Health Canada’s
Pest Management Regulatory Agency. Consult “Maintaining a Lawn” at healthycanadians. gc.ca, dial 1-800-2676315 toll-free or e-mail pmra.infoserv@hc-sc. gc.ca. newscanada.com
Winter is just around the corner and it’s important to get the exterior of your house ready for the cold months ahead. Heavy snow, cold winds and icy weather can damage your property and lead to expensive repair bills down the road. To get your property winter ready, we’ve asked the experts at Canadian Tire Home Services to share some easy and important tips for homeowners: • Inspect your roof: Inspect your roof with binoculars to ensure your shingles are not turning up at the edges, worn or falling off. Damage to shingles can cause melted snow and ice to seep into your home, causing leaks and potentially expensive water damage. • Clean your gutters: Remove any leaves, twigs and buildup from your gutters to allow water to run off properly and prevent water damage. • Put away outdoor furniture, playground equipment and trampoline sets: Winter storms are often accompanied by high winds that can damage these items. Since you are unlikely to use outdoor furniture and play equipment until the spring, look for a place to store them. • Prepare your trees and garden: Protect young trees and plants by
wrapping them in plastic guards or burlap. Doing so will extend their life and prevent animals and rodents from eating your shrubs during the colder months. Also be sure to remove fallen leaves and debris from your yard to prevent damage to the grass. newscanada.com

HERE’S BEEN NO SHORTAGE OF PRESS LATELY ABOUT SELFDRIVING CARS. And, although I haven’t yet driven Nissan’s autonomous Leaf, my latest test vehicle is getting pretty darned close. And is no doubt more fun. The 2014 Infiniti Q50 is a new addition to the marque and part of the company’s rebranding from G cars to Q cars. What this means, for example, is that the former Infiniti M is now the Q70, the G Coupe has been renamed the Q60 Coupe, and the G37 Sedan has be replaced by the all-new Q50. Company president Johan de Nysschen calls the Q50 the “most-important model in the Infiniti line,” adding they expect it to be their volume seller, not to mention that it now earmarks the company’s new design direction. Indeed, it’s a handsome car, and although not a radical
2013 DODGE DART T
office more appealing, Infiniti has paid careful attention to the driver cockpit, positioning switches, touch screens, drive mode selector and Infiniti controller within easy reach. All with the usual Infiniti fit and finish, which in my mind is among the best in the business. The use of aluminum, stitched leather and available wood trim is on par with cars costing thousands more than the Q50 AWD’s base price of $43,400. So is the seating, which was designed to help distribute body pressure across a wider area. I found the front buckets in particular to be comfy and supportive, and the heating, which is standard on all but the base RWD model ($37,500), helped me unwind after a long day at work. Rear seats are also comfortable, with ample knee room
and an armrest that drops down to reveal a pass-through from the 283-litre trunk. I found the steering quick, responsive and with just the right amount of weight to suggest a conventional linkage — which actually does exist, as a backup if the electronic system fails. Wouldn’t you know it, I’m out of space and still haven’t mentioned the two large touchscreens, of which the bottom seven-inch display controls much of the above-mentioned wizardry — along with so much more. Indeed, the 2014 Q50 is one of the most tech-laden cars I’ve driven, and to find out more be sure to visit the Infiniti website. Or, better yet, book a test drive and a long, long time with the user’s manual. You’ll need it.

departure from its predecessor, the Q50 is more refined from the rear, and more sinister from the front. This begins with Infiniti’s signature double-arch grille, done in black mesh and flanked by wraparound LED headlights that look like cat’s eyes, underscored by a sculpted lower fascia The Q50’s pronounced fenders and wide shoulders give it a powerful stance, and its arched roofline flows into the crescent C-pillars, which first appeared on the elegant Essence Concept. The double arch theme is repeated in the trunk line, which sits atop a pair of widebore exhausts. Overall, the look is more polished than athletic, but this sport sedan delivers plenty of kick from Infiniti’s proven 3.7litre DOHC 24-valve V6 that produces 328 hp and 269 lb/ft of torque. That’s a little less than the 360 combined system horsepower of the Q50 hybrid, and it doesn’t get the dual-clutch gearbox. To make that trip to the

Ford Focus stays on hot-streak in 2013 sales title for the first half of 2013. In addition, the Fiesta ranks as the fourth best-selling vehicle — making Ford the only brand to have two nameplates among the global top five bestsellers, according to Ford analysis of Polk global vehicle-registration data. Ford Focus grew 20 per cent in the first half of 2013 from the same period last year, to 589,709 vehicle registrations, driven primarily by increasing demand from customers in China and other Asian countries. Focus in China is up 137 per cent from 2012, to a total of 202,380 vehicles, making China the single biggest global
Mercedes C-Class sets new interior standard Mercedes-Benz is writing the next chapter of success with the all-new C-Class. An interior with an exciting, high-class ambience, touchpad and head-up display, the lightest bodyshell in the segment, extensive safety features, a new agile and comfortable suspension, as well as GPS-sensitive air conditioning, underscore the inner values of the new C-Class. Overall, its innovations, refined equipment and appointments feel like an upgrade to a higher class. The interior design of the future C-Class comes across as clear, sensual and with a host of new styling features. The most prominent features include a reinterpreted centre console with a freestanding central display and an innovative touchpad. As on a smartphone, all the head-unit functions can easily be operated using finger gestures. Additional to the information in the central display, a head-up display is also new. Like in a jet fighter, it projects important information as a virtual image directly into the driver’s field of vision. It appears to float over the hood, about two metres in front of the driver, thus ensuring the driver is distracted less from the road ahead. The system provides information on speed, speed limits and navigation instructions and features a high-resolution virtual image which the driver can adjust to their preferred settings.
Focus among the five global best-sellers and earns the top spot as the best-selling subcompact car globally, with 356,434 units registered in the first half of 2013. Combined, global registrations of Ford’s small cars — Fiesta and Focus — total 946,143 vehicles for the first six months of the year, representing an eight per cent increase.

Following its initial launch in Korea, the all-new Hyundai Genesis to be introduced in major markets next year.
Hyundai previews Genesis premium sedan level of driving and road and handling performance, cuttingedge safety and convenience features. The new Genesis has secured best-in-class basic product competitiveness through many tests carried out in various locations worldwide, including the famed Nurburgring in Germany. Since its introduction in 2009, Hyundai’s unique design philosophy — fluidic sculpture — has evolved to the next level and the new Genesis is the first model to adopt the revamped format. Genesis boasts a premium sports sedan look with refined,
in-motion design esthetics. A single-frame premium hexagonal grille makes a bold front statement, while fluidic and voluminous surfacing complete the sidelines. Meanwhile, the high-tech, sculptural surface emphasizes the rear design. Its interior design aligns with the premium exterior, adopting consistent design details that reflect careful consideration of ergonomics and intuitive operation. Tailored design specifications for all materials and master craftsmanship-level finish strengthen its premium image.
Buick celebrates a Regal anniversary The addition of the Regal nameplate to the Buick family goes back 40 years. But, even today, the Regal’s heritage as a sporty, mid-size luxury vehicle is strong as ever. Introduced in 1973, the Century Regal, as it was originally called, served as an upmarket model in the Century line and one of GM’s first “personal luxury” cars. Designed with sporty suspension characteristics and luxuries aimed primarily at the driver, the 1973 Regal coupe sold 91,557 units, helping Buick surpass its 1955 all-time sales record. Launched with a standard 350 cubic-inch V8 engine, the Regal would soon carve a niche as a powertrain innovator. Among one of the first to react to the ini-
Introduced in 1973 as the Century Regal, Buick’s mid-size Regal has been in production for 40 years.
tial Arab oil embargo, the 1975 Buick Regal was the only mid-size vehicle in the United States to forego a standard V8 engine in favor of a V6. Just a few years later, beginning with the 1978 Regal, Buick would lead a vanguard on turbocharging for better fuel economy. This expertise would later be used in creating Regals that would be recognized as some of the most powerful and
significant cars of the 1980s. Throughout four decades — and now in its fifth generation — the Regal carries on its sweeping design, dynamic driving experience and powertrain leadership. Today’s Regal is equipped with its mostpowerful standard engine, a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder producing 259 horsepower and 295 poundfeet of torque.
To help make the most of traction in all driving conditions, it is also available with advanced all-wheeldrive system that incorporates an electronic limited-slip differential and HiPer Strut front suspension. A 2.4-litre engine with eAssist light electrification technology is also available, delivering EPA-estimated ratings of (U.S.) 25 m.p.g. city and (U.S.) 36 m.p.g. highway.
