Helping victims with Denise’s story By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

F

OR A YEAR AFTER KIMBERLEY McCart’s mother left her father, Kimberley and her brother weren’t allowed to play outside their Lloydminster home. Nor were they allowed to open the curtains, which stayed permanently drawn across the windows at all times. “I remember — because I was four and curious, I didn’t understand — peeking out the front window and my dad was sitting there in his car,” said McCart, now a legislative assistant with the City of Kamloops. “And I realized then, this is why we’re not allowed to look outside. Because something wasn’t right about that, even at four years old.” Over the course of that year, McCart said her father’s behaviour, already abusive when her parents separated, reached its most frightening level. “He followed her, chased her, he waited outside our home,” she recalled. “Every single day he was right wherever she was, threatening her.” The stalking continued until one day in August 1983, when McCart’s father walked into the law office where her mother, Denise Ellen Nault, was working as a legal secretary. “He had his gun and he shot around the office,” McCart said. “The lawyers were scrambling and she tried to stop him. She’d been dealing with his rage for so long that she thought she could calm him down.” Instead, McCart’s father shot her mother twice, point-blank, killing her three days before her 28th birthday. He would spend the next 15 years in prison, while McCart went to live with an aunt and uncle. Thirty years later and a province to the west, McCart will tell Denise’s story at this year’s Kamloops Shoe Memorial.

Kimberley McCart, whose mother died as a result of domestic violence, will speak at the Friday, Dec. 6, Shoe Memorial at St. Andrews on the Square. Dave Eagles/KTW

By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

One year ago today (Dec. 5), a man walking his dog in Guerin Creek near downtown Kamloops happened upon the lifeless body of a teenaged girl. C.J. Fowler was 16 when she was murdered in Kamloops on Dec. 5, 2012. The last time she was seen alive was shortly before 3 a.m. that day, when surveillance cameras caught her leaving Royal Inland Hospital. Her body was discovered just before noon. Julie Morrison, chief councillor of the Gitanmaax Band First Nation in Hazelton, Fowler’s band, said the girl’s family is still seeking closure. “I think any family would feel the need for justice,” she said. “Somebody’s gotten away with this up until now.” Morrison took issue with media coverage of Fowler’s death, saying many reports painted her as leading a high-risk lifestyle or unnecessarily placing herself in a vulnerable situation. “People need to remember that C.J. mattered,” she said. “It seems that a lot of the media was blaming the victim — but, whoever did this was in the wrong. “The fact of the matter is people in Kamloops are not safe right now with this murderer on the loose and a lot of people walk that route [through Guerin Creek] to TRU.” At the time of her death, Fowler had only been in Kamloops for about four days. Police said at the time they had interviewed a number of her local friends, as well as a “male companion” with whom she had travelled from Terrace. To this point, police have not made any arrests. And, if the investigation is progressing, Mounties are not saying. Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush would only say it is an “active, ongoing investigation” and asked anyone with information to come forward. Morrison echoed that sentiment. “If anyone knows anything at all, they should share that information,” she said. “People need to think about anything they may have seen — even if it’s a little bit, maybe that might be enough to put together for the RCMP what happened that night. “I just hope and pray that we find the person who did this to C.J. because she did not deserve it. “No one does.”

Sixteen-year-old C.J. Fowler was murdered a year ago today, on Dec. 5, 2012. The photo to the left, taken from surveillance video at Royal Inland Hospital, shows the teen leaving the hospital in the wee hours of the morning. Her body was found later in the day in an area east of the Summit Connector. On Dec. 13, members of C.J.’s family, along with Tk’emlups Indian Band Chief Shane Gottfriedson, held a prayer ceremony (right) at the site where her body was found. Anybody with information on C.J.’s murder is urged to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-8283000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

City council asked to take a stand on Ajax mine By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

For Coun. Tina Lange, opposing the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine isn’t about the science. While the majority on Kamloops city council has refrained from taking a stand on the controversial open-pit mine KGHM Ajax wants to build south of Aberdeen, Lange has long been a dissenting voice on the issue, along with Coun. Donovan Cavers. “My first look at that project, my concern was the perception of the way people see our city,” she said. “We have fought being the dirty, stinky mill town for a very long time. If I could go back in time as a city council-

lor, I would never have agreed to put a pulp mill downtown on prime riverfront property. History should have taught us something.” In an open letter released on Monday, Dec. 2, Kamloops and District Labour Council president Peter Kerek praised Lange and Cavers for taking a stand on the mine ahead of their colleagues and urged other councillors to do the same. The council represents about 10,000 unionized workers in the Kamloops region and has been opposed to the mine since 2011. “There are a handful of local scientists who have spoken at rallies and are openly against the mine and have provided a lot of evidence

linking similar mine operations to detrimental health effects,” Kerek told KTW, pointing to information compiled by groups such as the Kamloops Area Preservation Association and Kamloops Physicians for a Healthy Environment “Those members of council who say there’s not enough evidence or enough scientific proof, I’m not going to try to give them excuses.” It’s an argument that doesn’t sway Mayor Peter Milobar, who said council actually knows less about the mine than it used to, since KGHM Ajax announced this past summer it would redesign the project after a discovery of more ore bodies. “I don’t have a posi-

tion at this point, I honestly don’t,” he said. “I’m waiting to see what their proposal looks like. I don’t even know what the proposal looks like because they’ve already admitted they’re moving things. So, how can I comment to you that I don’t like the project based on XYZ when I don’t know what XYZ looks like?” To Lange, that argument — is there enough science? — isn’t the point. She pointed to Domtar’s multi-million dollar efforts to become more environmentally friendly and reduce particulate emissions from its high stack as an example of what an industrial project can do to the public’s perception of the Kamloops.

council taking a position any time soon, unless the KGHM Ajax team speeds up its working pace. “There’s no great scheme going on here,” he said. “There’s a governmental process. There’s a time for us to make those official statements and take positions and everything else and it could be two years from now.”

tion from others will be problem enough. “That’s why I felt really comfortable coming out right away because I wasn’t saying, ‘This is going to kill us.’ I was saying, ‘This is going to kill our image.’” While Lange would like to see her council colleagues look at the issue from that perspective, she doesn’t think it’s likely to happen. Nor does Milobar see

“We know that the smell from a pulp mill can’t hurt you,” she said. “But, if you’re dealing with that every day because you live in Brocklehurst, you will tell me that, yes, it does hurt you and you don’t believe those lower stats.

The little boy opposing Ajax must be hoarse by now

I

S ANYONE ELSE OUT there tired of all the rhetoric about the proposed Ajax mine? I’ve developed a bit of a game here at the office. If I recognize the sender of an email with “Ajax” in the subject line, I try to guess which twist on the same old argument will be the message. Will it be the “the mine will destroy the environment” rant or the “nobody in Kamloops wants it” pitch? It’s become somewhat tiresome and old. The simple reality is the protests are based on nothing that actually exists. There is no massive hole in the ground. Loud booms are not being heard across the land. Water is not vanishing from the Thompson River. In fact, given the vague nonresponses that occasionally come out of the public-relations team at Ajax’s headquarters, one might wonder if anything at all will ever happen south of Aberdeen. The last official word from KGHM Ajax is that the project is being redesigned and the experts involved are still trying to figure out what the site entails. The latest is a letter from the Kamloops and District Labour Council, denouncing the mine-thatdoesn’t-exist and making bold statements with the belief that, if they are in print, they are valid. Consider this statement from the labour council about KGHM, the company behind the proposal: It “at best, had not conducted an

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL adequate amount of research to ensure they could conduct their business without bringing significant risk to the inhabitants of our city. At worst, it was apparent that the company had done significant research and determined it was in its best interest to not disclose such information.” So, what is it? Not enough research? Too much? They’re all liars? Protest is good and there really doesn’t have to be something tangible for people to oppose but, in this case, it’s a lot like the little boy crying wolf over and over and over again.

Kudos to Keller • Another chapter in the history of Thompson Rivers University will quietly close this week. Josh Keller is retiring and with him goes one more link to the wonderful institution upon which TRU was built — the University College of the Cariboo. We moved here because of UCC, where my husband was hired to teach journalism, and I learned more about the institution from the multitude of times Keller was out in the commu-

nity, talking up his employer, than I did from any other resource. Sure, it was his job as the guy who created the media and marketing department there, but you got the sense he really did want you to feel part of the UCC experience. There he was on the radio, talking about upcoming events, how the sports teams were doing — all the cool stuff that was happening. “Come join us on campus and enjoy all the cool stuff we do” was the theme of his messages. Keller knows his stuff. Before joining Cariboo College — which became UCC — he was in charge of media for the Vancouver Whitecaps and the B.C. Lions. He knows how to formulate a message and deliver it. I could never figure out why TRU shunted him off to the backbenches when it clearly had a star cheerleader. With him went what felt like an open invitation to Kamloops to be part of the experience on McGill Road. Today, other than the public engagement of sports-information officer Larry Read, there really isn’t anyone out in the community rallying the folks to support their university. There’s no one out there reminding us about all the great stuff that goes on there, inviting us to come up and share it with them. Some may call it a necessary step in the transition required to become a university. For me, it’s just a reminder that amazing foundation has become the ignored basement. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The District of Port Edward sits right next to the City of Prince Rupert. The district’s council recently made a decision that caused some heads to be turned and prompted the Northern Voice newspaper to cite the decision as one that could be — and should be — emulated by city councils from Abbotsford to Yak. Councillors with the District of Port Edward actually declined an allexpenses trip to the Caribbean. Council members, you see, had just returned from Malaysia, where they visited with a company proposing to build a liquefied natural-gas facility near Port Edward. A second company with an interest in entering the LNG market on the North Coast invited Port Edward council to visit its facilities in Trinidad and Tobago in January. But, as Port Edward Coun. Knut Bjorndal noted: “I think all LNG terminals look the same to the untrained eye, but I do want to thank [BG] for the opportunity.” The trip to the sunshine and sea would have taken place in the dreariest of seasons. It would have cost Port Edwards taxpayers nothing. Yet council politely declined, deciding the trip to Malaysia offered enough information on the LNG proposals. The Northern Voice editorial noted: “The second trip would have been superfluous with little benefit — except maybe a suntan and a few umbrella drinks. Frankly, the District of Port Edward council and staff are clear examples of local government done right.” Indeed they are. Perhaps councils elsewhere — hello, residents of 7 Victoria St. W., — will take heed of the wise decisions being made up in Port Edward and apply such sage decision-making to their agendas. On the North Coast, the decision involved zero taxpayer dollars; in Kamloops and elsewhere, trips related to provincial and federal municipal conferences and sister-city locales involve real money — public money. A blanket ban on travel isn’t the goal, but there is no harm in questioning the validity of trips and who should go, as Port Edwards council has impressively demonstrated.

Re: Letter: Ajax is welcome and will create jobs: “Mining has been the biggest blessing for our family as the children grew up. “Because mining pays such a good wage, I was able to stay home and raise my children. “Now my son and son-in-law work in mining, allowing their wives to also be at home with their children. “I know mines are monitored very closely and do so much to make sure the environment is protected. “There must be a balance in this issue and not the scare tactics that seem to be so prevalent. “This is a touchy situation, but another mine is a huge plus for the next generation and for the City of Kamloops.” — posted by Cathy

On Ajax, make informed decision Editor: I just read Jamie Patrick’s letter (‘Ajax is welcome and will create job opportunities,’ Nov. 28) in response to Mel Rothenburger’s recent lecture, at which he stated his opposition to the proposed Ajax mine. After reading Patrick’s letter, I couldn’t agree more. While I certainly applaud the idea of Kamloops being a university town and a great tourist destination, the simple fact is these industries do not tend to create the kind of employment that sustains a family in these expensive times. As proven by Highland Valley and New Gold mines, the mining industry does create very well-paying jobs that do allow for the kind of employment that allows people to comfortably raise a family in Kamloops. New Gold and Highland have also proven to be good corporate citizens, getting involved in and donating to numerous charities and events in our city.

I find it somewhat interesting that city council is lobbying the provincial government to include the New Gold property within city limits in order to capitalize on the potential tax revenue the mine property would offer, while at the same time keeping arm’s distance from a potential mine within city limits. If New Gold does get annexed into Kamloops city limits, will that rally all the NIMBYs to jump on the no-minein-our-city bandwagon against New Gold? Patrick makes a correct statement about the Mines Act and I would encourage people to get a copy and read it, especially those who are unsure of the requirements demanded of KGHM Ajax. Everybody has an opinion on this situation. The best move is to make it an informed one. Clint Hicks Kamloops

Centre-left can learn from Conservatives Editor: The morning after the federal byelections last week, I noted with dismay how NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau took potshots at each other, Trudeau craftily weaving Jack Layton’s inspirational words into his own speech and Mulcair reacting angrily to the blatant intrusion into NDP territory. My point in writing is to urge all centre-left parties (Liberal, NDP, Green, Bloc) to quit fighting amongst themselves and unite in opposing their common enemy — the Conservative Harper government. In the 1990s, the Liberals were able to win three majority governments, largely because the rightleaning vote was split between the Progressive Conservatives and Reform (later the Canadian Alliance). In 2003, the Progressive Conservatives and the Alliance wisely merged to become the Conservatives and the rest is history. Canada has had a right-leaning Conservative government since 2006. In the last three federal elections, Canadians outside of Quebec have had three centre-left parties for which to vote — Liberal, NDP and Green. In Quebec, once the Bloc is thrown into the mix, voters have four ways to split their vote. For the most part, a centre-right voter has had only one place to park their vote – with the Conservatives. In all three elections (2006, 2008, 2011), a combination of the centre-left vote would have defeated the Conservatives, providing the popular-vote percentages approximately held up. Locally, MP Cathy McLeod would probably have lost in 2008 had a single centre-left candidate run against her (she won outright in 2011) . In the recent by-election in Brandon-Souris, Conservative candidate Larry Maguire won by only 391 votes. By not splitting the centre-left vote, a single candidate would easily have defeated him. Will the centre-left unite? Unfortunately, probably not, at least not in time for the next election as much stands in the way. Trudeau and the Liberals are riding high right now and see themselves as leaping over the NDP to become government in 2015. The NDP, having done so well in 2011, will see themselves as taking the obvious step from opposition into government. Working together would involve a lot of discussion and compromise and surrendering of hard-fought-for positions, along with some people necessarily taking a back seat. The centre-left in Canada needs to borrow a page from the centre-right’s playbook. Wally McMorland Kamloops

BUILDING STRONG COMMUNITIES

Yoga instructor Charlie Bruce leads a recent class of grade 9 and 10 students at Sahali secondary school. Dave Eagles/KTW

CUPE Local 900

Yoga seems to be a hot idea at Sahali By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

As they worked through their poses and breathing, it may have seemed like just another yoga class. But, for instructor Charlie Bruce, watching the Sahali secondary students move from working on their own to partner poses was a major step. “They couldn’t have done this at the start,” Bruce said of the yoga program for grades 9 and 10 students at the school. “Partner poses collectedly are built on trust and communication,” something not present when the program began as many of the students were in groups with others they didn’t know well at all. “So, not only has this been good for them with the exercise and the poses, it’s helped them get to know each other — and I hope it has opened a door to another friendship, perhaps.” There are more goals to the program, introduced at the school in response to a student survey. Counsellor Joanne Simpson said many students in the two grades expressed issues about stress and worries about school, particularly in terms of workload and having to do provincial exams. Once the decision was made last

spring to offer yoga, a location at the school had to be found. “The gym doesn’t work. It’s too busy and noisy,” Simpson said, so a seldom-used portable was converted, with the desks and chairs hauled out and yoga mats, calming posters and quiet music added to create the right environment. Simpson said some of the students weren’t comfortable with the program at first — no cellphones, smartphones, iPads, MP3 players or other things that can bleep, ring or make other distracting noises were allowed. “Kids are inundated with a lot of stimulation, with their social-media toys,” Bruce said. “It’s all hurry, hurry, hurry but, in the Sahali yoga studio, we bring in a sense of calmness.” Bruce took it up about 13 years ago; intrigued by the physical component, he soon embraced the spiritual aspect, as well. He teaches the students the physicality, breathing exercises and other strategies they can take out of the studio and into their everyday lives. Each group has five one-hour classes with 50 classes planned for the 2013-2014 school year. But, said Bruce, that might be changing. “Word has got around,” he said, “and there are some Grade 12 classes interested now, too, so who knows?”

Baby, it’s megawatt cold outside!

It takes a mighty hardy soul (or three) to brave the bone-chilling cold that has grasped Kamloops. The Arctic air will stick around through the weekend, with highs forecast to remain in the negative double digits. As the mercury plummets, BC Hydro says the megawatts in electricity use rise. Dave Eagles/KTW

The highest peak demand on record took place on Nov. 29, 2006, when consumption reached 10,113 megawatts between 5

p.m. and 6 p.m. In Kamloops during that hour, the temperature was -4 C. While Kamloopsians and

residents across the province are giving their furnaces a workout this week, doing the same a year from now will be noticeable

on the monthly BC Hydro bill. On April 1, 2014, pending approval from the B.C. Utilities Commission, electricity rates will rise by nine per cent, the first of proposed hikes through five years that will amount to a 28 per cent increase in BC Hydro rates by 2018. Energy Minister Bill Bennett said the first-year nine per cent increase will mean the average homeowner will be paying an extra $8 per month, or an extra $96 per year. Subsequent BC Hydro rate hikes will be: • 2015: Six per cent • 2016: Four per cent • 2017: 3.5 per cent • 2018: 3.5 per cent • 2019: Three per cent. Each year’s increase is a percentage of the previous year’s rates.

This week, the Tournament Capital is in the midst of a deep freeze, with daily highs to be stuck in the negative doubledigits through the weekend. With the Arctic blast of air comes higher electricity demand — and BC Hydro is already seeing spikes in use as homeowners across the province reach for the thermostat. The Crown corporation noted electricity demand peaked at 9,102 megawatts on Monday, Dec. 2, between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. One week earlier, demand peaked at 8,723 megawatts. BC Hydro is expecting a peak of 9,500 megawatts to 10,000 megawatts this week.

LOCAL NEWS ROY FRASER DOUBLE-MURDER TRIAL

Grave had been pre-dug By Tim Petruk

Aerial photo shows the location of the grave on Roy Fraser’s Knouff Lake property. The bodies of Kenneth Yaretz Jr. and Damien Marks were found in the hole in May 2009.

STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The grave in which the tarp-wrapped bodies of two murdered Kamloops men were buried in 2009 had been dug months before by an unsuspecting neighbour, a jury has heard. Roy Fraser is charged with one count each of first- and second-degree murder in relation to the deaths of Ken Yaretz Jr., 25, and Damien Marks, 31, in April 2009. The 56-year-old’s trial in B.C. Supreme Court is now in its fourth week. Yaretz and Marks were last seen alive on April 17, 2009, when it is believed they headed to Fraser’s property on Knouff Lake to retrieve furniture. The three men knew each other — Yaretz had previously lived with Fraser in Knouff Lake, while Marks and Yaretz were close friends. Court has previously heard Yaretz was an associate of the Independent Soldiers street gang, while Fraser had a history of running marijuanagrow operations — something he admitted to police in a videotaped interview a short time after Yaretz and Marks were reported missing. Taking the stand on Tuesday, Dec. 3 — the last day of the Crown’s case — was Eugene Gelean, who lived on the same Knouff Lake street as Fraser in 2008 and 2009. Gelean said he and Fraser worked together on a roofing job in the fall of 2008 — a job for which Fraser was paid, at least partially, in labour. Court heard Gelean’s employer told him to take a backhoe to Fraser’s property to help with some excavation work — trenching for septic repairs and a hole near a field. “When we were finished [the roofing project], I dug a hole,” Gelean said. “There’s a field where it kind of went between the trees into the field. That’s where it was.” Gelean said he

remembered remarking at how many cats Fraser had on his property. “He had a lot of cats,” he said. “When I asked him about it — because there were so many — he said, at last count, he figured about 60. “It just seemed so strange to have that many cats. I always remembered it because not many people have that many cats.” The hole Fraser wanted dug, Gelean said, was three feet by seven feet. Gelean said he figured Fraser wanted the hole to bury dead cats, given the number of felines on his property. But, under crossexamination from defence lawyer Jordan Watt, he took that back.

“Mr. Fraser never told you that’s why he wanted this hole,” Watt suggested. “Not in so many words,” Gelean said. “Not in any words,” Watt replied. “No,” Gelean agreed. The jury also heard evidence from Gelean about Fraser’s missing pickup truck, something the Crown has suggested upset Fraser. Court has previously heard Yaretz borrowed Fraser’s pickup truck in late 2008 and failed to return it. Eventually, the vehicle was signed over to a relative of a high-ranking member of a Kelowna-based outlawmotorcycle gang. “He [Fraser] was a little bit burned about

it but, apparently, he’d signed the [transfer] papers,” Gelean said. “I’d be burned off, too.” Gelean said he thought Fraser had presigned the papers to sell the truck to Yaretz. However, Fraser told police he had the form filled out for a pending RV sale. The final Crown witness was an RCMP DNA expert who testified blood found in Fraser’s home belonged to Yaretz and blood found in Marks’ work van belonged to Marks. It’s not yet known if the defence will call any evidence. The 13-person jury has been stood down until Thursday, Dec. 5, while lawyers and B.C. Supreme Court Justice Ian Josephson decide how to proceed. Fraser’s trial is scheduled to wrap up at the end of next week.

COVER PAGE STORY

The message: Take threats seriously X From A1

The annual event will take place on the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, where 14 women were killed by gunman Marc Lepine at the L’Ecole Polytechnique in 1989. At the event at St. Andrews on the Square, women’s and girls’ shoes will be put on display — each pair representing a murder victim — as

will be the names of women killed because of domestic violence. Once the memorial is over, the shoes will be donated to the Kamloops YMCAYWCA Women’s Shelter. By speaking at the memorial, McCart said, she’s hoping to deliver a simple message: Take it seriously. “This can happen and this is the reality of it,” she said.

“A lot of abusive men, the common thing is they threaten to kill you. But, a lot of women can’t foresee that could ever happen. I want them to see it doesn’t take much to set these people off.” McCart said she wants to encourage women, or those who know women in abusive situations, to access resources that are available in ways

they weren’t in 1983, from the women’s shelter to online avenues. It’s also important to her to continue speaking out, as her mother did, despite the fact domestic violence was often a taboo subject in close-knit communities. “My mom’s not here, but it’s important for me to be her voice and say, ‘I went through this,’” McCart said.

SHOE MEMORIAL The Kamloops Shoe Memorial will take place on Friday, Dec. 6, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at St. Andrews on the Square, at Seymour Street and Second Avenue. Kimberley McCart, Gayle Nelson, Coun. Marg Spina and Debby Hamilton of the Ending Violence Association of B.C., will speak at 12:15 p.m.

SD73’s international students bring in $1.5M By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

During one of his trips to China, Terry Sullivan met a young adult woman who spoke almost perfect English. The School District 73 superintendent asked her where she had learned the language, expecting to hear about a school somewhere. He was wrong. Instead, she told him her family did not have the money to send her to a school that would help her with her goal to learn English, so she turned to the Internet, using an economics site — with no interest in the topic itself — and later other sites to teach herself. “That was how determined she was,” Sullivan said. It’s why many of the 110 international students now studying in Kamloops schools are here, he said, to learn to speak the language that dominates not only the Internet but the international world of business. District surveys have shown almost all — 96 per cent — of these students aren’t planning to become doctors or lawyers or teachers, Sullivan said. They want to go

into business. Their presence has its own business benefit in many ways. All are attending secondary schools, the educational sector that has continued to experience an enrolment decline. Without them this year, the final number that not only dictates funding from the government but all the academic aspects that roll out from it would have been 185 rather than the 75 fewer students recorded in the final enrolment report. The immediate economic impact is the $1.5 million the international-student body has brought to the district, plus another $200,000 that comes from SD73’s offshore courses offered throughout the world. Apply basic economic spinoff principles and the impact on the local community is more like $2.5 million, he said. Students come from almost every part of the world. There’s a large contingent from China, Sullivan said, but there’s a growing interest from South American coun-

tries — in particular, Brazil, where the country’s president Dilma Rousseff has put an emphasis on education and learning English. Students can take advantage of the district’s home-stay program while in Kamloops. Some take just a semester of school, Sullivan said, while others might stay for a year or up to three years of education. There’s a challenge for teachers sometimes, he said, particularly if the student’s English skills are poor. But, the district uses some of the money generated from the international program on English as a second language courses. Each school with an international student also gets $4,000 per student to assist it with any of the teaching challenges that might crop up. “We give as much support as we can,” Sullivan said. “And, we don’t blow our own horn but I think it’s fair to say our education system is highly regarded.”

Kamloops car-share idea percolating By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A group looking to start a car sharing co-op in Kamloops is feeling revved up after a weekend workshop with a similar organization based in Kelowna. Members of the Okanagan Car Share Co-Op (OGO) were in Kamloops on Saturday, Nov. 30, to share with about a dozen interested Kamloopsians their experiences setting up their program. “They basically went over not only what they

had experienced in Kelowna with the car share — because it took them about 18 months to get it started — but also they helped us with some facilitation, trying to figure out what our value and interests are,” said Coun Arjun Singh, who has helped drive the process so far. Singh said it’s not clear exactly what the Kamloops operation will look like when it is first formed. OGO started with two cars, but is looking to expand to three or four vehicles as membership grows to more

than 50 people. Under the Kelowna model, members pay a one-time refundable membership share of $500, as well as $4 per hour each time they use the car. There is also a plan for business members. “What’s interesting there is they thought a lot of folks would get involved for environmental reasons,” Singh said. “And they are, but a lot of folks are just looking at the cost of driving their own vehicle, fuelling their own vehicle, maintaining it

— and find that, financially, the car share is a better way to go.” Singh said local organizers have looked

at starting with a truck share and working up from there, but haven’t made definite plans. The Kamloops

group will continue to meet and Singh said plans are underway to conduct a community survey and marketing

campaign to gauge interest and get more direction on what model of car share best fits Kamloops.

the city needs to consult with the public on the plan. “The last time we really discussed this was almost a decade ago and the demographics of Kamloops have changed, the housing needs have changed and I think we need to hear from the people of Kamloops as to how they feel about development in that southwest area,” he said.

‘Turning young minds onto science’

Sixth Annual Shoe Memorial

By Dale Bass

December 6th, 2013 St. Andrew’s on the Square (159 Seymour Street)

STAFF REPORTER

11:00 am - 2:00 pm ~ Speakers beginning at 12:15 pm

Science World is celebrating a special anniversary next year — thanks to Don Bouffard and about 200 others just like him. It will mark the 25th anniversary of the creation of the Scientists and Innovators in the Schools (SIS) program, something created with the simple goal of “turning young minds onto science,” said Friderike Moon, the Vancouver institution’s program director and the person who oversees SIS. Bouffard is one of the volunteers who keep the program running, Moon said, and, since joining the group of volunteers in 1994, has interacted with upwards of 50,000 school children, sharing his love of rocks, gems and minerals with them. The retired geologist takes some of his massive collection to classrooms and lets them touch, examine and simply experience wonders like a piece of a dinosaur egg, a fossil teeming with quartz crystals that has an estimated age of 100-million years. Volunteers represent all walks of science, Moon said, from engineering through geology, biology and most of the other -ologies. Her own background, sparked by a high-school science teacher, is in biology and neuroscience, she said, and she’s been with Science World for four years, two as program director. Volunteers living in the Lower Mainland can take workshops to get the basic template for their presentations, with webinars provided throughout the rest of the province. The suggested format is simple: It has to be hands-on, with things kids can do during the presentation, perhaps with little projects they can make and take home, something that gets the conversation about science out of the classroom and around the dining-room table, Moon said. Volunteers stick to their own

A Canadian day of mourning for women who have met with a violent death has been declared a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Each pair of shoes on display represents a woman who was murdered or missing After the memorial the shoes are given to the Women’s Shelter for women in need.

You can commemorate the lives of women who have been killed by violence by donating womens/girls shoes to the Kamloops Shoe Memorial Sponsored by:

Don Bouffard, a retired geologist, visits Kamloops-area schools teaching kids about his passion — cool rocks. Dave Eagles/KTW

specialties not only because they know the subjects well but because they have a passion for it, “and that spark jumps over to the students,” Moon said. Bouffard ignites that spark. He talks with his students, not at them, and is as likely to be found sitting down on a small chair explaining to them in terms they’ll understand what it is they’re looking at. Even just a visit to KTW becomes a learning experience, as he produces a large rock — or, at least, it appears to be not much more. “Come out here into the sun and see what happens,” Bouffard said, standing by the window with that look of someone who knows what’s about to happen but still can’t wait for it. Then, it comes. “Wow. What is that?” And he’s off on an explanation of the unique mineral crystals embedded in the rock, elements that can only be seen when sunlight strikes them. It’s volunteers like Bouffard who have kept the program alive, especially since the provincial Liberal government cut funding to Science World’s B.C, Program

for the Awareness and Learning of Science in 2012. At the time of the cut, the government said it had provided money — $6 million — because money was available but, in tough times, it was essential to prioritize where to invest, with the priority being to fund classrooms. Moon said the cut meant volunteers would be encouraged to stay within their own regions, that scientists from UBC could no longer be flown out to regions to do workshops, and that the only expenses volunteers can now be paid are for travel. They get $40 per presentation to buy items to enhance it, Moon said, which can include buying a science book to leave in the school library or materials for a take-home project. SIS runs from September to June. People can sign up to be a volunteer by going online to scienceworld.ca/sis-volunteer, calling 1-800-363-1611 or emailing sisinfo@scienceworld.ca. Teachers can ask for a scientist visit through the same toll-free phone number or email or online at scienceworld.ca/ ontheroad.

James makes the point during daily rounds By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Ben James would love a job working in horticulture. He sees value in beautifying his city and it’s why now, during any down time from his job search, the North Kamloops resident is out picking up discarded needles. James contacted the media not to get a pat on the back, he said, but because, as he walks through the alleyways around McDonald Park, as well in as the park itself, he runs into people wondering who he is and what he’s doing with the empty milk jug and gloves. “I guess I look a little sketchy,” he said. “But, it’s your duty as a person to do what you can to clean up your neighbourhood.” James said he’s been stopped by homeowners asking what he’s doing and why and has had a few encounters with some people he might otherwise not run into — these tend to happen in some of the alleyways, he said. But, he remains undeterred. Before he started, James approached the ASK Wellness Centre, where he learned the proper way to pick

Campbell Avenue resident Ben James regularly picks up discarded needles around his McDonald Park neighbourhood in North Kamloops. He says it is every Kamloopsian’s duty to do what they can to clean up their neighbourhood. Dave Eagles/KTW

up needles. The centre also takes what he collects. ASK outreach worker Ken Salter also collects needles when he sees them during his travels through the city or if

a call comes in to the Tranquille Road agency. City parks staff will also pick them up if they find then, carrying sharps containers and tongs in their vehicles to do so safely.

“They make the area look trashy and they’re not safe,” James said of the needles. “So, I do my lap every day, walking or on my bike.” ASK executive direc-

tor Bob Hughes said the agency distributes between 4,000 and 5,000 needles each month and most are returned after they have been used. “We get people coming in with bucketsful of them,” he said. Considered a biohazard, they are sealed once collected and taken to the Interior Health Authority for disposal. Hughes said the agency has had calls from people about needles in the park but, when Salter has gone to check the situation, none have been found. The city has not been calling to report any increase in needles, Hughes said, noting it could be that James has cleaned the area before Salter can get to the park. “If people don’t feel comfortable picking them up, they can call us,” Hughes said. The agency can be reached at 250-3767558. Hughes said he was unaware James was doing the cleanup, but noted others at the agency knew of his work. Hughes would like to meet with James and talk to him about the situation to determine if there’s another way to handle it, other than having a volunteer out with a milk jug.

City crews deal with water-main break during Arctic chill The deep freeze was accompanied by a deep problem in Valleyview. A water-main break in the 1900block of the Valleyview frontage road on Tuesday, Dec. 3, affected water service to commercial businesses on Oriole Road and in the 1900-block of the Valleyview

frontage road. Micheal Firlotte, the city’s utilities services manager, said an eight-inch isolation valve was damaged, causing a water interruption. The valve is 14 feet deep and is in a travel portion of the Valleyview frontage road.

Firlotte said crews worked all night to replace the damaged valve, but were still working on resolving the issue as of the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 4. The city had hoped to have all water service back on line by the afternoon.

For his part, however, James sees this as part of his civic duty, one that sparked him to run for city council in 2008. He wasn’t successful and found his work at the time made it difficult to campaign or attend public forums — but he

hasn’t given up the idea of running again. “My dad says what I’m doing is admirable,” James said. “He’s always thought I was a bit eccentric, but I think everyone has the duty to do what they can to improve their city.” 101- 929 LAVAL CRESCENT, KAMLOOPS

MORTGAGE MATTERS

Don’t become a victim of thieves

The Christmas shopping season has arrived — as has the city’s Out of Sight campaign. The campaign works at reminding residents to secure their valuables while shopping as thefts from vehicles continues to occur throughout Kamloops. The City of Kamloops Community Safety members will be in parking lots and on streets, using stickers to convey the simple message of securing valuables. The Out of Sight campaign also partners with businesses to educate consumers about the potential risk of theft from vehicles by placing the stickers on their retail bags. “Not only do these stickers act as another reminder to the public, they also demonstrate our local merchant commitment to community safety,” said crimeprevention co-ordinator Sandro Piroddi, The campaign will run through December. Those who receive stickers go to the City of Kamloops website at kamloops.ca/communitysafety to enter to win a prize. Prizes will be drawn weekly.

Save your home! Don’t sell your home unless you want to! Bills, household expenses and poorly structured mortgages can wreck havoc on the family finances. If this sounds like you, there are options to explore, and you often don’t have to sell your home unless you want to! Bills and high housing costs can sometimes be addressed by looking at three things: 1. Amortization For years, many lenders have been advising clients to choose 20 or 25 year amortizations so the client doesn’t have to pay as much interest over the life of the mortgage. Good idea right? Well, the problem is that sometimes the payments are so high that the client ends up putting emergency expenditures, vacations and other expenses on high interest credit cards. The result is that people end up paying off 3%, 4% and 5% mortgage debt and building up 9%, 19% and 29% credit card debt. The high credit card interest can become unbearable and force the sale of your home. 35 year amortizations are still available! Conditions apply 2. Refinancing In some cases, we can use the equity from your house to payoff credit card bills, car loans, etc. This means we pay off high interest debt with low interest debt. We can’t always change how much money you owe, but we can change how much interest you get charged on it. 3. Cashback Would a cashback mortgage work for you? In this type of mortgage, you receive a lumpsum of 2% or 5% at closing which you can use to reduce bills etc. The extra money can reduce overall household monthly payments or can be used to payoff closing costs or mortgage penalty. The mortgage payments are higher for this type of mortgage. If you are struggling with month to month bills or know someone who is, call me BEFORE you miss a payment. Once you have missed payments reported on your credit bureau, lenders are less likely to approve your mortgage change.* Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, up for renewal or refinancing, there are many unique and competitive products available on the market today. For more information about qualifying for a mortgage or if you have questions about your specific situation, please call 250 682 6077 or e-mail steve.bucher@migroup.ca or check out my website at www.mortgagebuilder.ca Today’s Mortgage Matters is brought to you by Steve Bucher.

KYSA elects new board members Three new board members were elected at the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association annual general meeting on Thursday, Nov. 28. Art McDonald, Chris Wilkinson and Ryan Susheski were elected as directors, replacing John Moon, Laura Leadbetter-Fuoco and Chris Butcher. KYSA president Graham Cope was re-elected to the board for another two-year term. The executive committee: McDonald, Wilkinson, Susheski, Cope, Sharon Cadieux, Tony Cuzzetto and Colin Guise. Later this month, the board

will meet to determine who will serve as president and vice-president in 2014. The KYSA membership approved a budget for the 20132014 fiscal that projects a modest surplus on its operations without raising registration fees for the 2014 season, a KYSA press

release said. B.C. Soccer is calling for member organizations to discontinue the policy of keeping standings and presenting awards in the under-11 and under-12 age groups, starting with the 2014 season. Registration fees for the 2014 season are $575 for players selected for the rep program, $195 per player for the youth division (under-11 to under-18) and $175 per person for players registering in the mini-soccer division (under-five to under-10).

GEORGETTE BEWZA 1925-2013 Our much-loved mother, nana and grannana Georgette Bewza passed away peacefully after a short illness at Jackson House, Ashcroft, BC on December 1, 2013. Predeceased by her husband Stanley, and brothers Armand, Rene and Joe Belanger, Georgette will be sadly missed by son Raymond Bewza of Ashcroft, daughters Helen Bewza of Kamloops and Barbara Hassall (Dale) of Campbell River. She was devoted to her grandchildren Aaron, Michael (Karen), Jill, Suzanne (Shane), Ian (Krysta), Cameron (Aisling), Leah (Dave), Sarah and Michael, and took great delight in great grandchildren Enger, Kaleb, Preston, Priscilla, Alyse, Chelsea and Dawson. Also mourning Georgette are her remaining seven brothers and sisters and many, many nieces and nephews. Her absence will be keenly felt by her dear friend William Munro and his children and grandchildren who treasured their “Auntie Georgette”. Georgette was an honorable and gracious lady, admired for her generosity and “can do” attitude. She was a pioneer and an artist combined, talented bread and pie baker, tomato juice and perogy maker, seamstress, woodworker, quilter and gardener. One had to get up very early for a project with Nana, or the fruit would be picked, jars sterilized and jam already cooking. She regularly and effortlessly produced family dinners for twenty-five from her garden, larder and freezer. The family wishes to express their gratitude to Dr. Kitshoff and the caring staff at Jackson House for their kindness and compassion throughout Georgette’s two and a half years of residence there. A celebration of Georgette’s life will be held on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 10:00 am at the Ashcroft River Inn. Should friends desire, donations in Georgette’s memory may be made to Jackson House or a charity of your choice. Schoenings Funeral Service 250-374-1454 w www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Ryder a beacon for adaptive sports By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

H

E THOUGHT THE CHAIRLIFT LOOKED COOL, DID RYDER GILLIS, A SEVENYEAR-OLD WHO LIVES WITH AUTISM. When he first saw it churning three years ago at Sun Peaks Resort, there was nothing he wouldn’t do for a ride. Ryder was told he would have to learn how to ski before he could hop the lift and that might take a couple days of lessons. He was on the chairlift by the end of the day, thanks to the folks at Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks (ASSP) — and his own determined spirit. “The first year, we were unsure how it was going to go because Ryder has never taken to any types of sports,” said Ryder’s mother, Shannon, who doubles as his personal photographer. “He was diagnosed with autism before he was three and he has gone through many different types of therapy and strengthening programs because he has

The thought of skiing likely scared Ryder Gillis and his family three years ago, when he first laid eyes on a chairlift at Sun Peaks Resort. With the help of Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks, Ryder, who lives with autism, has gone from skiing hooked up to tethers and ropes under the supervision of three volunteers, to carving down the hill free of any restraints. Shannon Gillis photo

very weak dexterity. “By the end of last season, he was skiing blue runs and trying to find little jumps. He’s hit every chair, except for the double-black one at the very, very top.” ASSP publicity co-ordinator Jodi Roberts has watched Ryder and many other students come out of their shells in the program, founded in 2008 by retired Kamloops principal Dick Taylor. “Someone would say, ‘Well, I have MS or Parkinson’s, so I don’t think I can do it,’ and I’d be like, you’d be surprised,” Roberts said. “We take what you can do — whether you have upperbody strength or no upper-body strength, or you have a spinalcord injury — and you’d be surprised at what adaptive equipment we have and what we can

actually get someone to do on the mountain. “We have visually impaired skiers going down black runs.” Registration for ASSP’s 10-week winter program ends this week. Anyone who wants to sign up or find out more is encouraged to email adaptivesportsatsunpeaks@gmail.com or go online to adaptivesportsatsunpeaks.org. ASSP is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. There were about 50 helpers last winter who logged 3,208 hours working with disabled students, giving 198 lessons. There is a cost involved, but “it’s pennies compared to the experience you’re having,” said Ryder’s mom. “It’s amazingly inexpensive and you have two or three people working with your child.”

What might be the most incredible offshoot of Ryder’s newfound love for skiing — which appears to have surpassed his appreciation for chairlift rides — is what ASSP has done for his social skills. “He’s a very particular guy,” Roberts said. “He has to be fed at a certain time. You had to speak to him a certain way. He was pretty shy. “But, at our end-of-year wrapup party last year, where we had all of the parents and students at Bento’s [Day Lodge], he got up there and he named every single run he’d been on. He knew the name of every chair. “Last Saturday, he was on our float at the Santa Claus Parade with his mom.” He might not be a chatterbox every day, but Ryder certainly isn’t stuck for words on ski days.

“It’s brought out such an amazing socialization with him, where he is talking quite a bit and telling people about his experience of skiing, which he had never done before. “The conversation prior to skiing was very cut and dry, and very minimal.” Ryder has an exceptional memory and he is brilliant with numbers. “He memorizes the trees and trails,” Shannon said. “I took hundreds of pictures of him skiing and he has them all over his room and his door, wall to wall. “He can pick out a tree, without any signs, and say, ‘Oh, that’s such-and-such trail.’ “We can go back and forth with a conversation about skiing, whereas before it would be very hard to get a conversation going about anything that happened during the day.” He began skiing with three instructors, hooked up to ropes and tethers. Slowly, he broke away from the restraints and began skiing on his own, guided by just one supervisor. This December, Shannon hopes to go skiing with her son — just the two of them. “If you’re a paraplegic, they have sit-skis and, if you’re visually impaired, they have headphones,” Shannon said. “And, it’s not just for children. It’s for anybody with a disability who needs help. “You should never give up.”

Penton: Too many outdoor NHL games The National Hockey League seems to think excess will lead to continued success. If sitting down to eat one 12-oz. steak is a culinary treat, why wouldn’t that same person have triple enjoyment by stuffing down three 12-oz (burp!) steaks? Besides the accompanying upset stomach, one might never want to look at another steak again, juicy T-bone or otherwise. And so it goes with one of the NHL’s most successful enterprises, the Winter Classic, which each year is by far the league’s most-

BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW watched TV game. Held every Jan. 1 since 2008’s inaugural battle in Buffalo between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Sabres, the Winter Classic draws football-sized crowds in cold football stadiums and TV audiences can’t

get enough of it. But, that may end. The NHL, obviously of the opinion that if one is good, six outdoor games will be six times as good, is gorging itself on outdoor hockey this season. But (burp!), will hockey fans agree? The Winter Classic was born five years after an outdoor game billed as the Heritage Classic in 2003 between the host Edmonton Oilers and the Montreal Canadiens. This year, the Jan. 1 Winter Classic features the Red Wings and Leafs at Michigan Stadium in front of a crowd that could go beyond 100,000.

But, that game will be followed by outdoor tilts in L.A., New York (two of them), Chicago and Vancouver. By then, the novelty of watching outdoor games will almost assuredly have worn off. But, the millions of dollars that flow in from those special games is split between the NHL and Players Association, so the outdoor fun is unlikely to end soon. Meanwhile, let’s have a nice steak supper. But one 12-ouncer will be enough, if you don’t mind. Care to comment? Email brucepenton2003@ yahoo.ca

PacificSport forks up $500 for Hewitt By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

PacificSport Interior BC (PSIBC) kicked in to help speed-skater Jessica Hewitt on her way to Sochi, Russia, for the Olympic Winter Games. Shelley Hewitt, Jessica’s mother, accepted $500 from PacificSport at an event hosted by the Kamloops Long Blades at McArthur Island

Sport and Event Centre on Thursday, Nov. 28. A former Long Blade, Jessica, 27, has qualified to skate for Canada at the Olympics. She is expected to compete in the 500metre distance and the speedster might earn the right to compete in other distances, depending on her standing with national-team coaches. “On behalf of the board of direc-

tors, I wish to present a cheque for $500 to acknowledge the outstanding commitment to excellence for Jessica Hewitt and her being named to Canada’s Olympic team,” said Carolynn Boomer, PSIBC general manager. “We are truly proud of her and wish her the best in Sochi wearing Team Canada’s Maple Leaf.” Donate to Hewitt at jessicahewitt.ca/donate.

T Too many ffestivities spoiled by drunk driving. We all spend a lot of time organizing the perfect holiday party. Unfortunately, too many of these festivities are spoiled every year by the effects of drunk driving. Over the Christmas period, road accidents caused by this scourge are numerous as are the police road blocks which lead to a multitude of arrests for the same reason. Everyone deplores the thousands of deaths caused by drunk driving which occur every year in this country. The number of these dramas increase exponentially during the Christmas holidays when more visiting takes place and the opportunities of taking one glass too many increase. And this doesn’t even take into account the fact that drivers must deal with sometimes difficult, winter road conditions. Arrests for drunk driving also have many unpleasant consequences long after the pleasant fog of alcohol has disappeared.

So don’t have your Holiday festivities spoiled, call Operation Red Nose.

HER JOURNEY TO THE BIG BANG BEGINS By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

$9 fro Sta 9/ m ony ni ly gh t

When you find yourself involved in research that has sparked the attention of legendary physicist Stephen Hawking, you know you’ve moved into a pretty heady scientific realm. Natascha Hedrich has done just that. The fourth-year Thompson Rivers university student spent the summer in Switzerland working with scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN – the Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire), home of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27-kilometre long ring of science that, among other things, is being used to study the

Higgs Boson. The media has called the Higgs the God particle but, for scientists and students like Hedrich, it is simply the particle that might explain why the world exists. It is also the subject that led to the awarding of the Nobel Prize this year to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert for their work identifying it. In a talk she called Higgs, LHC and the End of the World – A Summer at CERN, Hedrich spoke of her experiences. They included giving workshops and a lecture to others – the institute has a staff of 2,400, up to 10,000 scientists researching there at any given time and, for the summer-student program, about 300 burgeoning scientists.

SANTA’S ALPINE VISIT

Natascha Hedrich Hedrich also talked of pursuing her own area of research — trying to replicate the Higgs particle from what remains when one of them decays. Essentially, she told her audience, “we want to get back to the Big Bang.” Hedrich told KTW her love of physics started when she was a student at Haldane elementary and it grew while she was at

Chase secondary. It eventually bested her other two career considerations in her teenaged years — chiropracty and marine biology. It’s not Hedrich’s first foray into research labs outside the TRU campus. She had a co-op opportunity at TRIUMF, the Vancouver-based national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics. While there, Hedrich attended a lecture on the Higgs particle by Dugan O’Neil of SFU. She met with him, discussed her own aspirations and he agreed to be her research supervisor. Hedrich received a National Sciences and Engineering Research Council undergraduate research award. The council and the Toronto-

based Institute for Particle Physics assisted her in being one of five Canadian students chosen for the summer program. Hedrich has also spent a summer working in Germany with scientists, researching and designing new sensors for wind energy. Her project dealt with precise measurements of wind speed and direction and how they can be used to generate energy from wind turbines. Hedrich is now busy with classes at TRU. With applications to universities in Europe, where she wants to pursue post-graduate degrees in quantum physics, she has until the end of the year to get the paperwork in and hopes to hear back in March from some of them with acceptance letters.

BOOK REVIEW

You only live again and again and again . . . As the Page Turns is a monthly column featuring reviews of recent books by members of the Thompson Rivers University English department. This month’s book is Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, Random House LLC, 480 pages

M

OST readers who are familiar with Kate Atkinson’s four Jackson Brodie detective novels and her earlier award-winning Behind the Scenes at the Museum will be eager to read her latest work. Be warned, though, that Life After Life is a departure for Atkinson — as it is for many readers of conventional narrative. The premise might seem a little daunting: The protagonist, Ursula Todd, leads many lives over the course of the novel. Some end very quickly; some follow much longer and highly compelling trajectories. None of the versions of Ursula’s life is definitive. Instead, what the novel ultimately depicts is the opposite of a single fate — the idea that. at any moment. in any of our lives, events could turn out differently and set us, and those whose lives ours influences, on whole new paths. What does not

ANITA SWING As The Page TURNS change is Ursula’s birth in 1910 into a privileged family in pastoral England. Many of the Ursulas in the novel have an uncanny sense of having been in certain situations before, which leads to her being considered an odd child, needful of psychiatric intervention. The longest scenarios of her life allow her to live through both world wars and it is perhaps in these the novel’s richest material lies. Wars, by their nature, seem to produce greater numbers of dramatic and significant events than might be realistic in peacetime. The randomness with which Londoners were wounded and died during the Blitz is depicted with particular poignancy. In the longest consistent scenario in the novel, Ursula is a warden, spending her nights trying to rescue the injured and keep track of the dead. Atkinson’s unique structure allows for some fascinating insights.

For example, we witness Ursula spending the Second World War not only in London, but also in Germany. The distress amongst civilians in both scenarios is plain to see and, indeed, neither side is portrayed as having a monopoly on suffering. The structure also allows Atkinson and, therefore, her readers some particular flights of imagination: In certain scenarios, Ursula has made friends with Hitler’s mistress, Eva Braun, which allows her access to the führer himself. One very surpris-

lost in the novel and attached to the characters and what happens to them. Indeed, sometimes when Ursula dies in terrible ways, it is a relief to have her “resurrected” in the next chapter! What might be frustrating to some readers is the sheer number of characters to keep track of, owing to Ursula’s different lives

ing scenario (not to be divulged) reminds us that a single person can radically alter the course of history and the novel shows that Ursula, because of her many lives and memories of both her past and future, has the potential to do just that. If all of this just sounds too strange or demanding to be bothered with, be reassured readers needn’t worry overly about pinning down the ideas behind the novel’s premise. The reading itself is deeply pleasurable. Surprisingly, in spite of the structure, it is still possible to get

Billy White is driving straight into a music career.

he kept writing songs and eventually released an EP, Country Drag Strip, which led to some of his songs — BBQ and Rebel Without a Cause — getting national time on radio. Earlier this year he was nominated for male artist of the year by the Country Music Association of Ontario, facing off against veterans like Charlie Major, Russell deCarle, Jason McCoy and the eventual winner, Johnny Reid. For now, it’s the highway that controls White’s life and a schedule that saw him, during a twoweek period, going “up and down and then back up and then back down again in Alberta. “And we were going to end it there, but I thought, since we were so close to B.C., let’s go there, too.” It means stopping at

radio stations for on-air interviews, the obligatory photos with station staff and then back in the truck, headed to the next stop. “I like driving,” White said. “And, it’s all night driving, which helps because, well, in Chicago, there was a lot of roadwork going on and if it had been daytime, I would have been stuck there for hours.” White grew up with rocker parents and he recalls riding in the car with the radio tuned to the classic-rock station. “But, I always liked country music,” he said, counting among his influences Tracy Byrd, Mark Chesnutt and Craig Morgan, the latter a singer perhaps not as well-known, but who has spent some time at the top of the Billboard

country charts with That’s What I Love About Sunday.” Saturday Night is White’s most recent single to be released in advance of a full album recorded in Vancouver with Tom McKillip (The Gords, Ian Tyson, among others). The CD should be released early next year. Given his education was pretty much focused on a career as a mechanic, White said he’s had to learn a lot about business, starting his own record company and label — but he’s got some great staff, with his parents also involved in the business. He knows performing is his future. “I like entertaining. It’s my passion. I like to get people up, dancing and singing. I’m not shy. What you see is what you get.” And, when the need for some grease and a wrench or two gets strong, there’s always that 1948 International Harvester truck sitting on the farm he shares with his grandfather. “I’m restoring it,” he said, “when I’ve got the time.”

He’s greasing a country singing career If Billy White’s truck had broken down anywhere along the road from Burlington, Ont., to Vancouver, he likely would have been able to fix it. The mechanic-turnedcountry-singer, however, was faced with a roadstopper during a recent stop in Kamloops — he left the lights on overnight and came out to a dead battery and no booster cables. A quick chat with someone in the parking lot and the big black truck was heading out again for the next stop on a long promotional trip the 22-year-old is doing to get word out on his music and scout out some potential stops for a tour he plans for next year. It was a toss-up in high school about where his future would lead, White said. He loved music when he was younger but, once the teen years hit, engines and tires and oil beckoned, leading to a job as a mechanic. On the side, however,

Canadian “Superfood” Gaining International Attention Creator of UMAC-Core™ UMAC-CORE is a unique product created out of an urgent need. In 2004 Tom Harper was diagnosed with a life threatening illness caused by asbestos exposure and given only months to live. He had been raising shellfish at his Research Sea Farm on Vancouver Island, simultaneously perfecting the only method worldwide of growing wild phytoplankton for use in the Aquaculture industry. Based on the wild plankton’s powerful nutritional profile, upon his diagnosis he decided to consume the blend of micronutrients as an energy source he so desperately needed at the time. Every day he ingested the minute ocean plants and every day he felt stronger and experienced less pain. Finally a surgeon performed exploratory surgery. To the doctor’s surprise he was inexplicably able to deliver Mr. Harper a clean bill of health.

People are even giving it to their pets with remarkable results. In fact, Kim Iles says it’s the results she gets with animals that have convinced her of the product’s efficacy. “It’s not a placebo effect when you give it to your pets. We’ve nursed sick animals back to health with UMAC-CORE. That’s how I judge if a product really works - if you can see results with animals - and we do.”

UMAC-CORE quickly gained far more attention than Harper could have imagined. “People were experiencing really positive shifts in their health,” Harper says. “Our success was consumer driven and we weren’t quite prepared for the demand. There were times when staff would offer to spend the night at the office so that we could get the Mr. Harper’s Sea Farm which grows the wild product out, and they often did!” phytoplankton offered in UMAC-CORE is also making a positive impact on the environment. “I Today UMAC-CORE is available in over 800 consider it one on the greenest companies in the health food stores across Canada, in stores world.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, avoid taking on more than you can handle at work and home this week. When tackling tasks, don’t be afraid to ask for and accept help.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, success may not come easy with a project you’re working on. But rest easy and take solace knowing you have tried things outside of your comfort zone.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Family and romantic endeavors may have been put aside while work issues have been at the forefront, Taurus. It is time to shift priorities.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, avoid confrontations at all costs, as this week you will not come out victorious. Keep a low profile and don’t ruffle any feathers.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, there’s not much you can do to change the course of this week’s events.You might want to consider swimming with the current instead of against it.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, if you think about things too long, there’s a good chance you won’t act at all. Instead, consider your options quickly and then get going on your plans.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, overanalyzing your workload is not going to make it disappear any faster. Therefore, simply take your assignments at face value and just get started.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Quality time spent at home or with the family has buoyed your spirits, Aquarius. The next step on your relaxation journey is to book a vacation to a warm area of the world.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 New experiences can be scary at first, but many times you will find that they are opportunities to learn and grow, Leo. Take full advantage of all opportunities this week.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Don’t underestimate your ability to garner quite a following, Pisces. There are many people just waiting to hear what you have to say next.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, although it seems like you have most of your financial woes worked out, now is not the time to get too cocky with spending. Being conservative is the way to go. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, career developments have you riding high and you’re anxious to share your news with the world. This enthusiasm can be a good catalyst for change with others.

Is Christmas helpful for kids’ mental health?

A

QUESTION we are often asked is, “Would our children and young people have better mental health if we returned to more traditional values and ways of life?” We love this question because the answer is a resounding “Yes!” and, at the same time, “No!” Would children’s mental health improve if they spent more quality time with parents and family than with electronic gaming and media? Undoubtedly. But, times change, priorities change and one marker of good mental health is resiliency to handle and cope with changing or unpredictable times. One can make the case, for example, that holding on to some cherished traditions may be harmful to our kids’ mental health, but anyone who suggests a change to the world order is labelled as a heretic — or worse. We should start small and build up — perhaps with Halloween. If our Halloween traditions were never done or heard of before, and someone suggested it should start now, how many parents would say, “Wow! What a great idea!”? We ask our children to approach strangers and not only accept candy from them, but actually demand it, with no “please” in the traditional method of making the demand, either. We teach them to threaten criminal behaviour if the candy is refused and we suggest they wear a disguise while perpetrating the heist. Many Halloween costumes increase risks in a number of ways — and let’s not even talk about candy. Would our children’s mental health be better if we altered that tradition to match up more with our current knowledge and beliefs? One would think so. Do we do it?

Not a chance — or, at least, relatively few parents do. Maybe because the Yuletide is approaching, we should think about some of those traditions, too. A few decades ago, neighbourhoods (and their schools) were more homogenous. People of similar social class, race and ethnicity attended school together, so if a child got only one or two presents, and one of them was a pair of socks, he or she was about the same as the other children in their class. Today our neighbourhoods and schools are diverse and reflective of our community as a whole, and what a wonderful thing that is for every day of the year — except Christmas. It is common for a department-store Santa to report that one child asked for a new iPod because their old one is not the latest model and the next child, from the same school, will ask for warmer mittens or something nice for a relative because their family struggles financially. Our holiday tradition tells our children that getting what they want is related to how “good” they are — and we somehow fail to teach that wanting many expensive things for ourselves falls short of “good.” We are definitely implying that the child who got new pants, or the family that does not celebrate Christmas because their ethnic or religious beliefs differ, or the child that got no presents at all are somehow “not good.” After all, Santa brings things to “good” children, doesn’t he? A few decades ago, there was a fair amount of time between a child’s desire to talk

anything.” We smoke or drink and tell our children not to. We eat unhealthy foods or watch TV too much and tell our children not to. And we bemoan that they become “distant” or no longer confide in us or would rather have a peer opinion than ours. When our traditions send mixed messages

es, support and expectations for our kids has not changed. Kids now often transition from a belief in Santa to learning about birth control in a 12-month span. The same parents who perpetuate the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus and Easter Bunny traditions are the parents who say, “You can trust me, I will never lie to you. You can tell us

to Santa and their participation in more adult interests, such as sexuality, alcohol, smoking and more. Now, the time between Santa and peer pressure is considerably shorter, but our respons-

we would not consider sending otherwise, maybe it is time to re-think how we mark them for the good of our children and for their mental health. This is not about abolishing or re-writing cherished family or social traditions, but an invitation to have a little introspection on what we intend versus what our behaviour is saying to our kids.

2014 Benz CLA 250 is a stylish price-buster By Zack Spencer The Mercedes CLA 250 is here and it is a cause for celebration. This stylish compact car is powerful, filled with all kinds of features and starts at an amazing $33,900. What this means for the entire car market is a trend towards more car for less money. If Mercedes Benz can sell such a competent car for so little, the pressure will be on non-premium brands to sharpen their pencil, add more features, and revise their prices lower. Mercedes already has a very affordable hatchback with the B250, which arrived about a year ago and is the basis for this CLA. Both of these cars open up Mercedes Benz to a new market of buyers who might have been thinking about buying a nonpremium brand but now realized a CLA is within reach. This, along with Mercedes strong resale value will help to keep lease rates low, amplifying the value this car offers. Looks Mercedes helped create the “coupe” 4-door sedan several years ago with the CLS sedan, which is based on the E-Class sedan. By dropping the roof, raking the front and rear windows and adding a more aggressive front end, produces an eye-catching sedan that looks classy and aggressive at the same time. Mercedes has taken this formula and applied it to the B-Class platform to produce this coupelike sedan. The base model

comes with 17-inch wheels but the sport package is great value, at $1,600, which adds 18-inch AMG wheels and extra AMG exterior trim pieces. The side windows are slim as is the back window for limited outward visibility, not so much for the driver but the rear seat passengers, especially kids.

fabulous Interstate highways. The power plant is a direct injection turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with a healthy 208 hp. The power goes through a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission to the front wheels. The more expensive and powerful 355-hp CLA 45 AMG has an all wheel drive (AWD) system as standard equipment but the base CLA 250 will get this important option sometime in 2014. X See B15

Inside One trend I’m not sure I like is placing a screen in the centre of the dash, like putting an iPad Mini — permanently placed in middle of the dash. It doesn’t look particularly polished, almost like an afterthought. Audi’s new A3 sedan, arriving in March, has the ability to lower their screen, which I think is a better approach. The premium package is a must because it includes a huge panoramic sunroof, backup camera, automatic climate control and heated front seats; all of this for $2,800. This is a small car; the roof feels very low and back seat passengers need to be children or shorter adults. Rear seat outward visibility is limited and legroom is also at a premium. Drive The launch event for this new CLA was held in the Washington DC area, leaving historic Georgetown and heading towards Maryland’s ports and navel academy. This provided some excellent stop-and-go traffic opportunities in Washington’s morning rush hour and then getting to stretch the new CLA’s legs on

British Columbians want limits hiked

A significant number of British Columbians clearly don’t buy the safety mantra that speed kills. In fact, according to a new Insights West poll, conducted in partnership with Black Press, 37 per cent of residents (and 39 per cent of drivers) believe a higher speed limit should be posted on our major highways. Currently, 100 km/h is the maximum on most freeways, while 110 km/h is posted on the Coquihalla Highway and parts of the Okanagan connector. “The fascinating issue on this question is the gender gap,” said Mario Canseco, Vice President, Public Affairs at Insights West. “While half of men in B.C. would like to see a higher speed limit, just one-in-four women concur with this view.” However, it was surprising to see that more than half (55 per cent) believe the speed limits should be left alone. Another five per cent want to see limits lowered. It’s surprising if you read the newspaper letters pages and listen to the province’s radio talk shows, where the 100-klick limit is commonly referred to as unrealistic on today’s well-designed highways. As a frequent driver of the network, I have to agree that a 110 limit on the suburban highways and 120 on the Coquihalla is reasonable. In my experience, it is not speed alone but excessive speed combined with overdriving the weather/ road conditions that kills. It is also true to say that dramatic speed differentials of traffic is also a major contributor to road carnage. However, while that may be true on congested urban roads it is less so on the highway where few people are travelling below the posted limit and I don’t see another 10 km/h hike making for

FAITH

No, it’s not all the inspired word of God

T

MICHAEL FENEMORE You Gotta Have FAITH gets worse. Verse 10: “If he takes another wife to himself, he shall not diminish the food, clothing or marital rights of the first wife.” Referring to the slave girl as his “first wife” reveals the relationship could also be a marriage. In Exodus 21, it’s not easy to distinguish marriage from slavery. The allowance for “another wife” means the husband is a polygamist. There is no law against polygamy, nor is there any limit on the number of wives a man may own. (Muslim men

are limited to four.) Verses 20-21: “When a slave owner strikes a male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies immediately, the owner shall be punished. But, if the slave survives a day or two, there is no punishment; for the slave is the owner’s property.” It’s unclear whether this applies to a wife, but it would certainly apply to the daughter sold as a slave. Some commentaries suggest that, if the injured girl survives more than one day, it is assumed her master intended only to punish her, not commit murder. He does have the right to administer corporal punishment because she is his “property.” (The Tenth Commandment, which is directed at men only, lists a wife along with other property, including a house, ox and donkey,

Exod. 20:14.) If you like to promote the Bible as the inspired word of God, you are stuck with defending these repugnant laws. This will come as a shock to most Christians because preachers rarely, if ever, mention them. It’s easier to teach platitudes like “God is love” (1 John 4:8, 16). Some have even described the Bible as God’s “love letter.” Telling people God is eager to answer their prayers and shower them with blessings keeps peace in the church and the income stream secure. Most Bible commentaries try to put a positive spin on Exodus 21, suggesting its laws were actually a big improvement for women of the ancient world. The complete text does include some rights for women. However, they proba-

bly wouldn’t have meant much to a defenseless girl being brutally beaten with a rod. Frankly, portraying the passage as a leap forward for women’s rights is absurd. Moreover, it doesn’t take a law degree to imagine how these regulations might lead to more serious abuse. Evidently, the author didn’t foresee the unintended consequences of such loosely worded decrees. Many commentaries openly concede daughters were sold to pay off debts. Are we to believe the omniscient creator of the universe composed the ambiguous phrase “if the slave survives a day or two?” This appears to be the work of an amateur lawmaker. It would be laughable if it weren’t so sickening. Some might dismiss

the passage as an obsolete Old-Covenant teaching that doesn’t apply today since, under the New Covenant, the overarching principle is love. However, this argument only helps prove my point. The passage in Exodus fails to reflect the love of God portrayed in the New Testament, proving he could not have been the author. The Bible says, “I the Lord do not change” (Mal. 3:6). The God of today would have to be the same God who existed in ancient times. It’s unbelievable he would have exhibited a radically different nature during another era. Who would want to worship a God who ever authored such detestable laws, regardless of whether he may have later changed his mind? Incidentally, in the New Testament, the

apostle Paul describes the “Law” (including Exodus) as “holy and just and good” (Rom. 7:12). Numerous authors have proved that large portions of the “Holy” Bible cannot possibly be the inspired word of God. I consider this good news because it means I don’t feel compelled to attribute something evil and disgusting to my creator. I’m delighted he probably had nothing to do with it and relieved to know I don’t need to defend it. Recommended reading: Jesus Interrupted and Forged by Dr. Bart D. Ehrman; Biblical Nonsense by Dr. Jason Long. Learn more online at BooksOfMoses.info. Michael A.

2014

HE BIBLE, widely considered the Word of God, allows a man to sell his daughter as a slave and/or wife to a polygamist. The purchaser is allowed to beat her with a weapon to within an inch of her life. As long as she remains breathing for one day before succumbing to her injuries, the man is deemed guiltless. It all begins at Exodus 21:7: “When a man sells his daughter as a slave . . .” (New Revised Standard Version throughout). This simply assumes men will be selling their daughters as slaves and nowhere in the text is there any attempt to condemn the practice. If God inspired this, one would expect this is where he would say, “I want you men to stop this immediately!” Instead, it just
