$1,500 fine for crash that claimed life Layoffs By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

What a judge called “momentary inattention” on the part of a driver travelling on Highway 5A in April 2013 had tragic consequences for a family in a pickup coming the other way. Knutsford resident Darryl Higgins pleaded guilty on Thursday, April 3, to driving without due care and attention for allowing his F-350 pickup to cross into the other lane on a corner of Highway 5A beside Knutsford Hall. He was given a $1,500 fine. Killed in the April 6 2013, head-on collision was 36-year-old mother Alicia McDonnell. Her fiance, Stephen Little, was released from hospital two days ago — after spending nearly a

year in hospital with grievous injuries. McDonnell’s five-year-old son, sitting in the middle and rear of the pickup, survived the crash and now lives with a relative. “This is something we see all too often — momentary inattention, a small carelessness that results in horrendous consequences,” provincial court Judge Stephen Harrison said. In a precedent-setting case out of Kamloops six years ago, the Supreme Court of Canada found a driver who crossed the Trans-Canada Highway for no apparent reason — striking an oncoming car and killing three people in the other vehicle — could not be convicted of dangerous driving causing death. Crown and defence had asked for a $1,500 fine for Higgins, with no driving ban. However, prosecutor Adrienne Murphy said

B.C.’s Superintendent of Motor Vehicles may levy a ban or impose other measures. Higgins has no driving or criminal record. Defence lawyer Rob Bruneau said Higgins doesn’t fully know why he crossed the centreline on the highway corner. The accident was seen by witnesses outside the hall. He was not drinking nor speeding, but he may have turned to speak to one of his children in the back of the truck. Road conditions were good and it was during daylight hours on a Saturday. “He did say to witnesses and maintains now he did take his eyes off the road to speak to his children,” Bruneau said. “He didn’t make the turn as fully as he should have.”

BUGGED BY SCIENCE Summer Stonehouse shows off the vibro bugs she and brother Daniel (right) created as part of their sciencefair project for this year’s Cariboo Mainline Science Fair, which was held on Thursday, April 3, at Thompson Rivers University gymnasium. Judging the Barriere students’ project were Chris Lewis (second from left), Lauren Helton and Sarah Eagles. The siblings hypothesized that the motorized bugs with the plastic bristles would move along a track faster than those without plastic bristles touching the ground surface. Winners of the science fair will be announced today (April 4) at 11 a.m. Dave Eagles/KTW

The B.C. Lottery Corporation (BCLC) is undergoing a reorganization and layoffs may be part of the plan. An official with the Crown corporation confirmed communication is going out to staff, but otherwise declined comment. “We will have more information coming out later this week,” said the spokeswoman, who would otherwise not confirm if, or where, layoffs will occur. A source told Kamloops This Week as many as 60 people may be laid off. The Province newspaper reported this week the lottery corporation is undergoing a reorganization. Former CEO Michael Graydon left the helm of the BCLC in January and was replaced on an interim basis by acting CEO Jim Lightbody. The Crown corporation has offices in Kamloops and the Lower Mainland. Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone said recently government expects senior management to work and reside in Kamloops, the head office. Under Graydon, senior executives worked out of the Lower Mainland. The BCLC laid off 14 workers in information technology at the Kamloops office two years ago. Employees are not represented by a union.

COVER PAGE STORY

TRUSU election raises questions Defeated candidate takes issue with recorded comments of president-elect By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

A student at Thompson Rivers University wants to know why his appeal of the student-union (TRUSU) election last week was dismissed. Abdullah Abalkhail was one of four international students who ran for the 13-member board of directors, challenging incumbent Dylan Robinson. Abalkhail filed two complaints on Friday, March 28, immediately after the two-day voting period ended. He said he did so when he received an audio recording of Robinson speaking to another TRU student. On the audio recording, provided to KTW, Robinson is heard to tell another student: “Do you think our student union should be dominated by one group of students or do you think it should be diverse and representative of everybody?” The student is heard to say he thought the slate composed of four international students had good ideas. Robinson replies: “That’s the thing that we’re kind of trying to talk about, is that we’re very diverse and representative slate of all students, arts students, science students, nursing students,

everybody. “Women, aboriginal, international — everybody.” Robinson continues: “About that other team, unfortunately, if they were to win, our student union would be 100 per cent international students — no domestic students.” When contacted by KTW, Robinson said he and others worked to create a slate of candidates — called Your Voice=Your Vote — that would reflect the diversity of the campus.

and Feroz Shah, who ran for a director-atlarge position. He said they campaigned under the name Change TRU, and advocated: • Reduced parking fees and creating a half-day fee; • Extended dental coverage to all students; • Extended library hours and opening the House of Learning 24 hours a day; • Provide more Apple iMacs in at least one public computer lab;

[web-extra www.kamloopsthisweek.com GO ONLINE TO HEAR THE AUDIO RECORDING It included Trad Bahabri, who ran for vice-president finance, Meshari Alanazi, who ran for the international-students representative position, and Feroz Shah, who ran for one of the four director-atlarge positions. On Abalkhail’s competing slate were Blessing Chiduuro, who ran against Leif Douglass for vice-president external, Pooyan Sigani, who ran against Melissa Gordon for vice-president internal,

• Provide more entertainment events on campus throughout the school year and not just at the beginning. All members of the Your Voice=Your vote slate were elected. Robinson did not provide a clear answer on why he said electing the four-member international slate to a 13-member board would mean the student union would be “100 per cent international students.” Instead, he stressed

the diversity of candidates on his slate. Nathan Lane, TRUSU executive director, said Abalkhail’s complaint was rejected because Robinson’s comments were not seen to have violated TRUSU policy that states campaign materials cannot be used if they “are factually incorrect.” Lane said the electoral-review committee — comprising Lane, the vice-president internal and a directorat-large — overturned the appeal because it determined Robinson’s statements weren’t slanderous. As to Abalkhail’s contention Robinson’s comments breached TRUSU policy prohibiting the use of incorrect information, Lane repeated that the committee found there to be no merit to the complaint. The committee did agree with a second complaint from Abalkhail that campaign materials were still up after polls closed. But, Lane said, that’s a common issue, noting the goal is to clear off bulletin boards as soon as possible after an election. “But, people are elated and they usually don’t get to it until the next day,” he said. Lane suggested Abalkhail is upset because he lost the election, receiving 381 votes to Robinson’s 644. In the vice-president external campaign,

Habitat for Humanity breaks ground today By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER

adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

For two Kamloops families, the road to homeownership begins this weekend. Habitat for Humanity will break ground today (April 4) at 2 p.m on its first home in Kamloops since 2009. The Habitat home will be a duplex, located at 3143 Westsyde Rd., and will be the third project to house two families at the same time. Habitat for Humanity direc-

tor Jan Linford hopes both families will be on hand for the groundbreaking. “That’s going to be exciting, to have them there,� she said. Lingford joined Habitat in November 2013 and will be taking part in her first build with the organization. She said Habitat would be notifying the families this week. “I’ve never done it before. I’m looking forward to it,�

Lingford said. “I think it will be pretty momentous for us and for them.� Seven families were considered for the homes, including the two that were chosen. Lingford noted the number of applicants was low compared to other Habitat builds across the country, likely due to Habitat’s prolonged absence from the building scene in Kamloops. She hopes the number of

applicants will increase for next year’s project. Families need to meet three criteria when applying for a Habitat for Humanity home: � Their current living situation must be untenable due to cost, safety or other concerns. � They must also be considered low-income in the Kamloops area, as defined by Statistics Canada, and be willing to work with Habitat on the all aspects of the home for more than a year. � Homeowners are required

to put in 500 hours of “sweatequity� during the course of their build, in place of a down payment. Habitat provides the mortgage to the homeowners, interest-free and with no down payment. The families then make the monthly payments on the fair market value of the home — estimated at $320,000 for each half of the duplex. Habitat is hoping to have the duplex complete and the families moved in by Christmas.

Nod given to argue pot laws’ constitutionality By Tim Petruk

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A precedent-setting ruling from a Kamloops judge will allow local lawyers to argue in September the constitutional validity of Canada’s marijuana laws. Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame ruled lawyers representing Carl Anderson and Wesley Jenkins won’t have to argue the worth of their case before making constitutional challenges later this year. “I’m happy with the decision,” said lawyer Shawn Buckley, who is representing Anderson. “It means we can just go straight into the Section 52 [constitutionality] hearing. “We’ll be leading evidence to show the law is unconstitutional.” Anderson and Jenkins are facing charges of possession of a controlled substance stemming from a November 2011 raid of the

Canadian Safe Cannabis Society, a compassion club on Tranquille Road. Anderson began operating the storefront following an erroneous raid at a legal grow-op in his house in 2009. The Crown wanted Frame to order a special hearing — known as a Vukelich hearing — at which defence lawyers would have to present why they had the right to argue Canada’s marijuana laws are unconstitutional. However, Frame said the lawyers can proceed straight to their constitutional argument. Section 52 of the Constitution Act states: “The Constitution of Canada is the supreme law of Canada, and any law that is inconsistent with the provisions of the Constitution is, to the extent of the inconsistency, of no force or effect.” Anderson and Jenkins’ argument is that Canada’s marijuana laws are not consistent with what’s set

forth in the Constitution — namely Section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which guarantees Canadians the right to life, liberty and security of the person. Buckley expects to argue Canada’s marijuana laws violate the security of person because they put patients who require medicinal marijuana at risk — there is no practical way to test its safety nor complex chemical requirements without assistance and expertise of compassion clubs. He said he expects Anderson to testify during the constitutional challenge, as well as members of the compassion club and expert witnesses. Frame’s ruling is the only Canadian decision dealing specifically with Section 52 arguments as they relate to Vukelich hearings. The constitutional argument is expected to take place in September, but lawyers will meet later this month to set an exact date.

Tiny escapes big charges in home-invasion case By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The nickname Tiny — overheard during a home invasion — along with a lumbering limp amounted to insufficient identification to convict James Paulin in the crime, a B.C. Supreme Court justice has determined. However, two other men on trial — Joadth Anderson and Travis Kelly — were convicted on Thursday, April 3, by Justice Lauri Ann Fenlon. The three stood trial on charges of break-and-enter, disguising a face to commit offence, unlawful confinement and assault with a weapon. They were arrested after a home invasion and robbery at a home on Kemano Street in North Kamloops on Jan. 23, 2013. Three defence lawyers acting for the men acknowledged

the home invasion occurred, but disputed the identity of the three men. Kirsten Hunt was charged separately and pleaded guilty to one count of break-and-enter. She served an 11-month jail term and is now on probation. Court heard four people, including Hunt, broke into the home to steal electronics. One of the residents, Justin Stanley, testified he recognized his ex — Hunt — who wore a hockey mask during the robbery, by her voice and by a pair of distinct pink shoes she had worn when they dated. Stanley described the violent home invasion, in which masked men assaulted him and held him on the floor with a machete pressed to his neck. During the ordeal, Hunt called out to her accomplices, calling them Joey, Travis and Tiny. “When she did so, one or

more of the males rebuked her, telling her not use their names,” Fenlon said in her ruling. Both Anderson and Kelly were identified by other means, including their voices and names on cellphone and text communications — evidence that didn’t exist for Paulin, who was represented by defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen. “I’m satisfied James Paulin is very probably the Tiny who committed the robbery . . . But the standard of proof is higher than ‘probably,’” Fenlon said. While Paulin has a limp, Jensen argued grainy video evidence of a heavy-set man recorded outside by a neighbour doesn’t conclusively prove the man is limping. There was also insufficient evidence Paulin goes by the nickname Tiny, Fenlon said. Anderson and Kelly will be sentenced at a later date.

Agriculture Land Reserve divided — not conquered

K

OOTENAY BILL Bennett has done what I reported last November he was doing — seizing the horns of the sacred cow that is the Agricultural Land Reserve. Henceforth there shall be two land reserves. The Island, South Coast and Okanagan, which produce 85 per cent of B.C.’s total farm revenue on 10 per cent of protected land, retains its strict anti-development rules. In the much larger area Bennett likes to call “beyond Hope,” nonfarm uses will be considered to help maintain the many economically marginal farmers. This is the Interior, Kootenay and North, where development pressure is mostly an urban myth. In remote areas, ALR diktats with no relation to reality are routinely ignored. Political critics were quick to call this a B.C. Liberal hidden agenda to pave the ALR for their developer pals. Certainly neither party’s 2013 platform talked about the ALR, although B.C. Liberal leadership candidates Kevin Falcon and Mike de Jong promised relief from its more senseless bureaucracy to Peace country farmers in 2011. When the zone plan was revealed last week, media went to ALR pioneer Harold Steves, the hero of all Lower Mainlanders who try to tell northern farmers what to do. “My real fear is that they want to open the door for fracking and natural gas and oil,” Steves said. I’ve got bad news for the socialist sage of south Richmond.

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In

VICTORIA Oil and gas companies have operated on farmland since before the ALR was created in 1974. Conspiracy buffs should read the delegation agreement that took effect just weeks after last May’s election, giving the Oil and Gas Commission authority to administer wells, pipelines and waste pits on farmland. If the ALR interferes with the prescribed handling of drilling waste, it interferes with safety measures. University of the Fraser Valley “food-security” professor Lenore Newman went on CKNW to refute what she called “uninformed arguments,” and then offered one of her own. This two-zone change is connected to the exclusion of large tracts of Peace land for the Site C dam, she said. Actually, the government exempted that project last December using the long-standing “provincial interest” provision, so this phase of the alleged capitalist plot against farmland has no effect on Site C. Steves is also concerned about second homes being built beyond

Hope and later sold rather than being destroyed as is the current disastrous rule. He warns that farmers might end up with “non-farm neighbours” or, as we like to call them up north, “neighbours.” Again, this is an urban problem projected onto rural B.C., where costly restrictions mainly serve to accelerate the depopulation of rural and remote areas. Delta-South independent MLA Vicki Huntington is livid about the legislation, which has no effect on loss of farmland in her constituency. The growing federally regulated port supersedes provincial laws, and the Tsawwassen First Nation is growing a big shopping centre on its treaty land. Aboriginal entrepreneurs are also starting to force big-box development on southern Vancouver Island, home of the purest of the pure left. This is where farmers can’t even protect themselves against deer. The most damning charge is that the six regional ALR panels now in place are open to corruption under new rules. Panel members have always been cabinet appointments, but currently they have to be from outside the region so they are less likely to hand out exemptions to their friends. That is certainly something to keep an eye on. So is the status of B.C. farms, where the average farmer age is 56 and rising, and half of farms have income less than $10,000 a year. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Leaving seniors behind a bad idea Most seniors live on a fixed income. According to Employment and Social Development Canada, the median retirement income for women and men aged 65 and older in 2011 was $20,200 and $30,100, respectively. At least 90 per cent of seniors rely on Canadian Pension Plan payments and Old Age Security payments. These payments are adjusted annually according to the Consumer Price Index. This seems fair, if the price of goods goes up, so does the amount received from CPP and OAS. Many private pension funds do the same thing. Since 2002, with the exception of 2011, the CPI in Canada has hovered around two per cent or lower. In 2011 the CPI averaged 2.9 per cent, whereas in 2009 the CPI averaged 0.3 per cent. In their wisdom, the B.C. Liberal government, in an attempt to balance the budget, decided not only to cut ferry service and increase fares by four per cent, they also decided to get rid of free travel for seniors. For example, seniors must now pay $8.15 for one-way travel, Monday to Thursday, between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay. Previously, seniors could hop the ferries on foot free of charge from Monday to Thursday. To add insult to injury, BC Hydro is raising its rates 9 per cent this year, and is forecasting an increase of 28 per cent over the next five years. These increases are far beyond the CPI, such that with every increase, never mind in the price of food, the price of insurance, of everything, seniors on a fixed income are losing ground. On the bright side, more seniors will be staying home on Vancouver Island, going to the legislature to stay warm to cut heating costs, which means more people in the public gallery keeping an eye on the provincial government.

THIS WEEK Speak up You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Letter: Ajax brochure focuses on selective information:

“It was interesting to read the four letters on the subject of air pollution — be it air pollution that might be caused by Ajax or air pollution already found in the valleys that make up much of Kamloops. “This, of course, does not include the occasional temperature inversion that takes place during some of the summer months. “While throwing our darts at Ajax, one might ask why the same darts are not thrown at Domtar? “As to controlling dust, how many of us have seen what Highland Valley Copper has done to control its dust problem?” — posted by Lawrence Beaton

Re: Story: Crosscountry skiing masters return home from nationals with medals:

“Peter Findlay is a world-class athlete and a world-class human being. “Congratulations on more titles to add to your list. “We are so lucky to have you in Kamloops.” — posted by Grun-py

OVER 150 DISPLAYS!

It will definitely be time for a change on Nov. 15 Editor: Re: KTW’s story of March 28 on Mayor Peter Milobar’s state-of-the-union address (‘Mayor pushes for status quo’): It appears Milobar is already spending the tax money he sees coming from the proposed Ajax mine project. Could it be he has already made his decision and the only thing left for him to do is to paste an “I Support Ajax” bumper sticker on his car? Good to know before the next election that Milobar wants to spend the newfound Ajax tax money to help bring down property-tax rates for business and heavy industry, while throwing the average homeowner under

the property-tax bus. Even better, Milobar wants voters in Kamloops to go with the same council we have now so as to not upset his grandiose plans. Ironically, on the same page as our intrepid mayor’s musings was a story on city council’s latest adventure — pulling out perfectly good parking meters and replacing them with electronic ones that aren’t user-friendly and, the city now admits, don’t work. Parking rates doubled and another $2 million goes down the rabbit hole. This reminds one of the water-meter issue this mayor and council foisted on Kamloops after it had been rejected by voters in a referendum.

And we can’t forget the $8-million parking bunker this mayor and council wanted to build in Riverside Park that had to be stopped by a citizen-led counterpetition. This from a mayor and council that cannot or will not explain how a 550metre, eight-foot-wide bike path with chain-link fencing, cement road dividers, some retaining walls and a small overbuilt bridge ended up being $2 million over-budget — almost 50 per cent over the cost estimate — resulting in a final cost of $6.1 million of our tax dollars. I have absolutely nothing against bike paths but, if this is an example of what we can expect from Milobar and his cohorts, the voters

of Kamloops had better be prepared to dig into their pockets up their armpits to pay for four more years of this political and financial prowess. “What does, “Time for a change” mean? To me, it means it’s time for the people of Kamloops to shuffle the deck and deal themselves a new mayor and council and elect people who will look after the interests of Kamloops residents first, use some common sense when it comes to spending and not give away the store when the big multinationals shake their cage.

Ken Barry Kamloops

Tournament Capital brand cannot co-exist with mine Editor: KGHM recently had a by-invitation-only party. Was the company behind the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine south of Aberdeen afraid people who weren’t brainwashed might attend the party and speak out about a mine 1.3 kilometres from homes and schools? Perhaps the partygoers were just people interested in free food. Other cities, such as Vernon, Kelowna, and Penticton, would never allow another mine to come into their city to jeopardize residents’ health. At the least, politicians in those cities

would voice their objections. Our city council tells us they are waiting for more information. Are they waiting until Ajax is in operation? KGHM has been on the site for a few years and has information, but is not willing to share it for a reason. Yes, Ajax will bring several-hundred jobs and some spin-off work, but what about the jobs we will lose because we will be known again as a dirty industrial town? Kamloops can’t be a tourist town and a dirty mining town. The 90,000-plus citizens of Kamloops who will have to live with this mine if it is approved should have a say in the develop-

ment of their city. I have to thank Dennis Karpiak for his letter of March 13 (‘For four bucks a head, we will receive untold misery’). I am sure a doctor has more knowledge of health concerns than does KGHM Ajax external-affairs manager Yves Lacasse, an ex-RCMP officer hired as another PR person to spin the facts. Kamloops needs to wake up and think about why Ajax is withholding information. Do we value our health or our children’s health? How much is it worth? Allan Havisto Kamloops

Beware those warning of end-of-world Ajax scenarios Editor: Re: Dennis Karpiak’s letter of March 13 (‘For four bucks a head, we will receive untold misery’) about the proposed Ajax mine: Karpiak is either the smartest person on Earth or the worstinformed. His rant about the mine could be funny if it wasn’t so sad. If Karpiak’s claims are to be believed — early death and doctors leaving town — Kamloops will soon become a ghost town.

Where is the evidence to back up his claims? What is the source of his doom-and-gloom predictions? How about the thousands of diesel-spewing trucks that come through Kamloops each month? How about all the coal and oil trains that pass through town? How about Domtar’s pulp-mill operation? Perhaps Karpiak can tell us how long we have to left based on all that pollution.

National Energy Board to hear 400 oral arguments Andrea Klassen

STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The City of Kamloops is one of 400 organizations allowed to present oral arguments on Kinder Morgan’s planned expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline to the National Energy Board (NEB). More than 2,000 organizations applied to comment or intervene in the review process for the pipeline expansion, which would nearly triple the amount of oil the company transports from the Alberta oilsands to Burnaby. Intervenors, of which the city is one, are allowed to submit written arguments and questions about the proposal, present oral arguments at public hearings and comment on draft conditions for Trans Mountain’s approval. Public-works direc-

tor Jen Fretz said, based on early reviews of the project information, the city is planning to focus on the project’s potential effects on Kenna Cartwright Park, the Westsyde neighbourhood, Lac du Bois and the stretch of Tranquille Road near Kamloops Airport. Staff are reviewing Kinder Morgan’s application to draft questions for the company. Only 400 applications for intervenor status were granted by the NEB. Another 1,200 groups and individuals were granted commenter status, which entitles them to submit a letter of comment to the NEB, but not to speak at public hearings. Of that number, 452 applicants had asked for intervenor status. The board also denied 468 applications.

Other local intervenors include the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, Jim White of the Grasslands Council of B.C. and local landowners with property in the pipeline route, including KGHM Ajax. The Adams Lake, Whispering Pines and other area First Nations bands also have intervenor status. Local commenters include the North Shore Business Improvement Association, Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, Kamloops Naturalist Club and the Kamloops chapter of the B.C. Sustainable Energy Association. The National Energy Board has 15 months to complete its hearings on Trans Mountain. Intervenors will have their first chance to request information from the company in May.

KAMLOOPS

Oral arguments will come in January and February of 2015. Once the process is complete, the NEB will recommend the federal government either approve or dismiss the application. The panel must also come up with conditions for the project’s approval, even if it recommends against Kinder Morgan.

A permanent repair to the bumpy patch on Columbia Street is expected in two weeks. Dave Eagles/ KTW

Columbia a bumpy ride, for now By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Since December, a couple of torn-up patches of pavement on Columbia Street have caused more than their share of bumpy rides and driver woes. Located near the Grandview Terrace turnoff, the pavement at the problem spots is noticeably lower than the rest of the roadway. Kamloops’ Twitter users report the uneven road is responsible for

video-online] www.kamloopsthisweek.com at least one lost muffler. Acting streets and capital projects manager Dennis Luison said the city first had to tear up the road just before Christmas because of a water-line break. To repair the break,

SUNDAY, APRIL 6TH • 7PM

the city had to cut up the asphalt, but didn’t have any new material available to repair the road permanently. “Because of the water break, voids happen under sections of the road and, as those

voids occur, we would go back and take that portion of the asphalt out and repair it,” Lusion said. “Unfortunately, we’re doing that just with cold mix now because that’s all we have in the winter, so that’s why you’re seeing it torn up and replaced and torn up again, because cold mix doesn’t last that long.” Lusion said the city doesn’t know for sure the full extent of the damage to the roadway.

“We haven’t removed the whole thing and had a look because, once we did that, we wouldn’t have had any asphalt to put back,” he said. With asphalt plants starting to come back online, Luison said the city considers the repair a “top priority.” A permanent repair of Columbia Street should begin in about two weeks, with work done on Sundays to cut down on traffic disruptions.

Domtar will set up odour-tracking equipment By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

With the future location of one of the province’s two air-quality monitoring stations still undecided, Domtar is looking to set up odourtracking equipment of its own on the North Shore. Domtar environment manager Kristin Dangelmaier said the company is in talks with a resident near McArthur Island about installing the equipment, which would track total reduced sulphur — the odourcausing component of the pulp mill’s emissions. Dangelmaier said the station

would provide the company with more data to back up its belief that the closure of one of its lines last year dramatically reduced bad smells from the mill. “Historically, when you look at where odour has been noted and concerns have come from, it’s definitely been the North Shore,” she said. The Ministry of Environment has until recently monitored air quality from Brocklehurst, but was forced to move the station on short notice when the city sold the land it was using to the developer of the Riverbend seniors’ housing complex.

A spokesman for the ministry said some monitoring equipment from the North Shore site was transferred to the Brocklehurst fire station, but the ministry has had difficulty finding a new home that meets its requirements for the station. Since October 2013, the ministry has used its downtown location on top of the Kamloops Federal building as its primary monitoring centre. “The secondary station is being moved to another location in Kamloops,” the spokesman said. “The ministry is actively seeking a new site and hopes to have the station installed and operating

this spring.” Dangelmaier was at Kamloops City Hall on Tuesday, April 1, as part of the mill’s annual update to city council on its emissionsreduction efforts. She told council complaints about odours from the mill are at about 75 per cent of what they were before the company closed its A-line last year, noting total reduced sulphur emissions from the mill were the lowest recorded in seven years. Coun. Donovan Cavers said community group Kamloops Moms for Clean Air has asked for the mill to post hourly emissions

information on its website and wanted to know if Domtar would agree to the proposal. Dangelmaier said air-quality information is already available to the public online at BCairquality. com. The website posts information from the government’s monitoring stations, which she said would be more valuable to the public than readings taken only at the mill. “It’s informing the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week, here’s our air quality,” Dangelmaier said. “And it’s available at the click of a button.”

TRU Faculty Association preparing to battle back By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s a culture of fear at Thompson Rivers University, some professors allege, and their union is gearing up to fight back. About 50 members of the TRU faculty association (TRUFA) attended a meeting designed to review and comment on Funding the Classroom Not the Boardroom, a strategicplanning document TRUFA has prepared in response to a similar process that has gone on at the institution. After two presentations — one from Len Findlay of the Canadian Association

of University Teachers and one by TRUFA president Jason Brown — the group broke into smaller gatherings to discuss the report and make observations and recommendations. Facilitators for those four focus groups read the comments, which included: • There is too much security in budgets and their preparation. One member from Williams Lake said his campus won’t learn until the end of May what its budget will be. “We can’t post any courses online. Why would any student want to come to Williams Lake if they don’t know what we will be offering?”

dialogue he said Shaver does not have with faculty. • Tenured faculty are leaving and not being replaced. The school of social work, for example, at one point had 15 tenured professors; seven have left, three are on a phased-retirement reduced workload and permission has been given to hire only one to replace the seven. Planning their next steps include reviewing and incorporating the discussion and perhaps taking more obvious action. “We have to be mili-

tant,” faculty member Tom Friedman told them. “Militancy and activism are the only way we area going to make change.” Suggestions included wearing T-shirts with a branding iron on them — TRU’s recently announced branding project, the fourth in the past two decades, was the subject of much derision — or holding public gatherings to share their concerns with students. Reviving the Friends of TRU idea, one created years ago to promote the university, was also

floated. This time, it would be to engage the community to support the faculty. Guest speaker Len Findlay of the University of Saskatchewan spoke to the group and told them they need to push back against domination being used as administration. He said Shaver’s assertion the institution is about to become Canada’s first modern university is “cringeworthy, emanating from the abyss of ignorance and the pinnacle of opportunism.”

Law change could Federal court denies hinder aboriginal voting judicial review for alleged criminal kingpin By Bruce Cheadle CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Gladys Christiansen had a question of her own for the Conservative government as she testified on Thursday, April 3, before a parliamentary committee studying controversial election law changes. “The government continually stresses the accountability of First Nations,’’ Christiansen, the human resources director for Saskatchewan’s Lac La Ronge Indian Band, told MPs. “What about the government’s accountability to Canadians?’’ Christiansen was one of three First Nations representatives and among five witnesses in all Thursday, who uniformly criticized a massive rewrite of Canada’s election rules because of the difficulties it will present for some electors. Bill C-24 — dubbed the Fair

Elections Act by the government— has produced a cavalcade of criticism on a variety of fronts, but two measures in particular have garnered almost universal condemnation from experts. The bill proposes to eliminate the practice of vouching, in which a properly identified voter can vouch for the identity of someone lacking complete ID. At the same time, the bill will end the limited use of voter-information cards, issued by Elections Canada as a proof of residency. It would also severely limit Elections Canada’s ability to communicate with people, including through voter outreach programs. Peter Dinsdale, acting CEO of the Assembly of First Nations, testified the changes will make it harder for aboriginals to vote and are a step backward.

Lifesaving drug too costly in Canada By Maria Babbage CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Provincial and territorial governments are banding together to pressure a U.S.-based manufacturer to finalize a reasonable price for a lifesaving drug that treats a rare form of cystic fibrosis. They’re asking the chief executive of Vertex Pharmaceuticals to meet with the health ministers of Ontario, Alberta and Yukon and explain why Canadians have to pay a premium for Kalydeco, which costs patients hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. It’s unfair that Canadians have to pay more for the drug than Americans, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars a year per patient, Alberta Health Minister Fred Horne said following a provincialterritorial health care committee

meeting. “What we’re shooting for here is a fair price for this drug to make sure Canadians have access,’’ he said. “As far as I know, this has never been done before in Canada, where people at the political level have actually engaged with a drug manufacturer, face to face across a table, but we think it’s important,’’ he added. There is a small group of children who have been able to get the drug through clinical trials and Vertex has covered that, Horne said. But, Vertex hasn’t offered coverage of their drug on compassionate grounds that other companies usually offer, he said. There are about 118 Canadians who would be eligible for the drug, including 21 in Alberta. Horne said the provinces and territories have been negotiating with Vertex since last July.

OTTAWA — A Conservative party member in Yukon has been tasked with sorting out an ugly nomination battle in suburban Toronto that has grabbed national headlines. Michael Lauer of Whitehorse is heading up the probe into allegations by the Oakville North-Burlington riding association that MP Eve

Adams has abused her position and behaved poorly in her bid to represent the riding in 2015. Prime Minister Stephen Harper instructed the party to investigate after his office received a letter of complaint signed by 14 of the association’s board members. Harper said little when asked about the matter. “In terms of a member of Parliament, as

you know, there’s a nomination process in place,’’ Harper said during an event in Mississauga, Ont. “To the extent there are disputes around nomination processes, these disputes are referred to the national council of the party. “In our party, the leader does not appoint candidates and he does not run the nomination process. These are led by the national council of the party.’’

VANCOUVER — The accused kingpin of a Macau triad will not get a new hearing of his immigration case, after a Federal Court judge found there is ample evidence of his ties to criminal activity. Lai Tong Sang was ordered deported by an Immigration and Refugee Board adjudicator last August, on the grounds he was criminally inadmissible to Canada. Lai, 59, quickly filed the application for a judicial review by the Federal Court. Following a hearing last month, Justice Roger T. Hughes found there was “a wealth of evidence’’ linking Lai to the triad and its illegal activities.’ He dismissed the application. “The [board] member had abundant evidence in the record, including a book and an article directly implicating the applicant as a prominent triad member,’’ Hughes wrote in his March 17 decision. There was evidence such triads were involved in illegal activities, Hughes said, and evidence directly named Lai as a principal member — an allegation he did not counter with any material evidence. “I see no point in quashing the decision and sending it back.’’ The Immigration and Refugee Board heard Lai was the “dragon head’’ of the Shui Fung, or Water Room, gang. He arrived in Canada on a permanent-resident visa in October 1996, in the midst of a bloody turf war over control of Macau’s criminal underworld. Lai had his wife and three children in tow and they, too, faced an admissibility hearing last year. The board adjudicator found they are admissible and may remain in Canada. The arrival of Macau’s notorious gang boss in Canada made headlines and prompted a federal review of the office that approved his application.

$3.4-million conservation effort at 75 per cent mark

By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

A rancher working with Nature Conservancy of Canada to conserve her habitat-rich grasslands is undertaking “an incredible journey,� one of her neighbours told an audience of 175 people. That neighbour is B.C.’s lieutenant governor, Judy Guichon. “It’s not just that you love the land, the view from the window, the smells and the animals you shepherded — it becomes the core of your soul,� Guichon said at a benefit at Thompson Rivers University on Wednesday, April 2, to raise money for and awareness of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC) plan to purchase Napier Lake Ranch from rancher Agnes Jackson. The NCC said it has raised 75 per cent of the $3.4 million needed to purchase 1,300 acres of the ranch, located beside Highway 5A, about 25 kilometres south of Kamloops, and to set aside funds for its long-term management. Jackson, a former president of B.C. Cattlemen’s Association, plans to continue living on a small parcel where her home is located. Guichon, a rancher from Nicola Lake to the south, described Jackson as “a girl

who grew up on a ranch and a horse,� as well as a friend and mentor. Later in life, Guichon said, “we both learned to cope as widows on ranches.� Jackson purchased the property in the early 1970s with husband Roy, who was at that time a government worker. She sold her cows after Roy died in 2008, but wanted to keep the legacy of ranching on the property. She is able to trace its history to 1874. The conservation group invited wildlife biologist and photographer Jared Hobbs to this week’s event at TRU’s Ike Barber Centre. Hobbs has extensively studied this province and detailed how the Interior’s

A15

grasslands and wetlands are home to rich diversity. Between bird and owl calls, Hobbs described getting off the plane in Kamloops after flying from his home in Victoria and immediately walking north and up into the hills to look for rattlesnakes, an endangered species in this province. The ranch is set among some of B.C.’s rarest biogeoclimactic zones and may be visited by or home at different times to species ranging from the world’s fastest animal — the peregrine falcon at 320 km/h — to the red fox, American badger, Lewis’s woodpecker, Clark’s nutcracker and sharp-tailed grouse. An estimated 30 per cent of this province’s endangered species make use of grasslands at some point in the year. The NCC has conserved about 2.6-million acres of land in Canada since its founding in 1962, including one-million acres in this province. In the past six years, it has either purchased outright or placed conservation covenants on extensive grasslands in the Thompson-Nicola to protect it from development. That includes in Lac Du Bois and between Kamloops and Nicola Lake. The non-profit conservation group has labelled the area as Heritage Grasslands Natural Area.

Thankyou volunteers

We’re giving seniors a hand.

Our programs to help seniors remain independent at home.

Get ready for National Volunteer Week! National Volunteer Week (April 6 to April 12) is a time to recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s 13.3-million volunteers. 2014 marks the 11th consecutive year Volunteer Canada has delivered the campaign in partnership with Investors Group. Volunteers strengthen our communities and make our country vibrant. Governor General David Johnston calls Canada “a smart and caring nation.” It’s our dedication to community involvement that has given us that reputation at home and around the globe. Canadians from coast to coast are encouraged to call the Volunt-Hear Hotline at 1-855-372-5077 and participate in a national conversation about volunteer recognition. The hotline is a toll-free number where people can call to leave a brief impact statement and say thank you to a volunteer for their efforts. Why? Because volunteer work speaks volumes. Messages will be organized into playlists on soundcloud.com. Listeners will be able to share messages and hear first-hand how volunteer work changes lives and shapes communities.

Thank you to all our volunteers for enriching the lives of seniors in the community. To volunteer call: (250) 828-0600

Canadian Blood Services says thanks During National Volunteer Week, Canadian Blood Services thanks and celebrates the more than 17,000 volunteers who donated 210,000 hours of their time in the last year to support Canada’s blood system. Volunteers help make saving lives possible. We truly appreciate the talent and energy our volunteers contribute — it’s time that made a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of Canadians who needed blood products this past year. Volunteers promote important campaigns throughout the year, co-ordinate and host blood donor clinics and speak to others about the importance of blood, stem cell, organ and tissue donations. On behalf of our national team at Canadian Blood Services, I’d like to send a heart-felt thanks to all volunteers in the Kamloops area who support Canadian Blood Services, as well as other charitable organizations in Canada.

Interior Health is celebrating its thousands of volunteers during National Volunteer Week — April 6 to April 12. Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers for the work they do to enhance health-care delivery throughout the region. Volunteer recognition events will be held at many local hospitals and residential-care facilities throughout the region during the month of April. In other areas, gifts or cards are offered as thanks. Interior Health is supported by an estimated 4,800 volunteers. Within the Thompson Cariboo Shuswap, Interior Health will celebrate volunteers such as Judy Vigue of Revelstoke. Vigue shares her musical gifts by playing piano each week for residents at Mount Cartier Court residential-care facility and for the Interior Health adult day program at Moberly Manor. A retired registered nurse at Queen Victoria Hospital and a longtime Revelstoke resident, Vigue believes music is a talent with which she has been blessed. “God gave me the gift of music, so that’s why I go,” said Vigue, who also makes sure she takes time to say hello to every resident while she’s there. “I try to be loyal to these people. Many of the residents know me and always look forward to the singsong.” Vigue doesn’t limit her volunteering to Interior Health. She is also the organist for Eastern Star meetings, plays before Sunday services at her local church, helps at church events with food preparation, serving and clean-up, and spends time helping make dressings for the cancer clinic in Kelowna. No doubt, this spirit of volunteerism was what led to her award as Revelstoke’s Citizen of the Year in 2008. “What an honour that was,” she said. “I am a widow now, since 2000, and I have plenty of time to help in many ways. It makes my heart feel so happy when I make so many people glad to see me.” National Volunteer Week is Canada’s largest celebration of volunteers, volunteerism and civic participation. It deserves to be recognized; across Canada, 13.3 million volunteers contribute 2.1-billion total hours. Interior Health is continually looking for special people to help out in a wide range of volunteer roles. Go online to interiorhealth.ca to find out about volunteer opportunities in your area.

B.C.’s backyard: A Shuswap for every season By Margaret Deefholts SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

A

T FIRST glance, it’s not a very good start to my

trip. The Okanagan in early summer is supposed to be idyllic: Brilliant sunshine, sparkling lakes and mountain vistas. Instead, our group is greeted with surly skies and mountains like grey shadows against the horizon. This is both a bad bot

thing — and a good thing. Shuswap Lake, like an untidily scrawled “H” on our map, borders the town of Salmon Arm in the south and touches small resort communities such as Sicamous, Wild Rose Bay, Blind Bay and Chase in the course of its meandering shoreline. Tethered at the Waterway company’s dock on Mara Lake is our home away from home for the next three days — the Prairie Princess, an elegant lady of the lake. On the deck to greet g us are our hosts: Skipper Darren, and first mate, pilot and navigator, Noah. An enormous welcomeaboard hamper with an assortment of goodies sits on the kitchen counter and, alongside this, is a large bowl spilling over with Okanagan’s bounty — apples, peaches and strawberries. Our fridge, well stocked with provisions from DeMille’s Market in Salmon Arm, includes Okanagan’s liquid

ambrosia — wines from local vintners. This is definitely a good thing. Living on a houseboat was another good thing, particularly one as luxurious as Waterway’s Genesis 60 model. The lounge and dining area, flanked by large picture-book windows, features an entertainment centre, while the well-equipped kitchen boasts a full range of modern appliances. Impressive too is the upper pp deck with its eight g person hot tub, wet bar, TV and music consul and the water tube slide on the top deck. First thing on the agenda is a tour of the prestigious and challenging Hyde Mountain Golf Course, one of many in the Shuswap

area, followed by lunch on the deck of its Loggers Restaurant with its spectacular views of the Lake. Back on the boat, we dock briefly at Sicamous where Bahama John — a gregarious six-foot-eight giant who owns a Southernand-Bahamian-fusion style restaurant in town, arrives on board with our first night’s dinner: Spicy Bahamian beef ribs, jerk chicken and coconut-flavoured brown rice. The rest of the afternoon is spent leisurely cruising north, listeningg to Noah strum his guitar, sipping wine, nibbling snacks and gazing at scenery. Salmon Arm Lake reveals its secrets: Cottages halfhidden among the evergreens, craggy cliffs rearing against scudding clouds, sheltered coves and narrow inlets. Later in the summer, these waters will swarm with canoeists, sports fishermen, water-skiers and windsurfers; bikers and hikers will test the winding forest trails. We tie up at Hungry Cove to sip afterdinner wine and chat around

a beach campfire. In mid-July the Cove will echo to the sounds of rock music from moored houseboats and boozy beach parties in full swing. But, tonight we are the only ones here. Noah stacks white-hot stones in a cairn at the centre of a rigged up tarpaulin tent; a splash of water and, voila — a steamy sauna. We wake up the following morning to drenching rain. The scheduled morning bike ride has to be cancelled. cancelleed. d

But, there are compensations — what better way than to spend a miserably wet afternoon than a winetasting tour of three of the Shuswap region’s estate wineries, all of which are family run ventures. On our last morning, we wake to blazing sunshine, mountains silhouetted against a sapphire sky and lake waters flecked with dancing sunspots. We now have to leave it behind — not good.

PROVINCIAL NEWS

Newspapers ramp up recycle-fee battle BY JEFF NAGEL • BLACK PRESS • JNAGEL@BLACKPRESS.CA

Imminent changes to B.C. recycling rules could financially cripple local newspapers, says the president of the B.C. Yukon Community Newspaper Association (BCYCNA). Front-end recycling fees will soon be applied to businesses that produce packaging and printed paper, a move that will cost newspapers $6 million across the province, said Hugh Nicholson, BCYCNA director. “Newspapers are kind of the unique product in all this,” said Nicholson, a Nanaimo-based publisher with Glacier Media. “We’re not packaging, like Styrofoam or plastics . . . and we shouldn’t be lumped in with packaging companies.” On May 19, industrial stewardship group Multi Material B.C. (MMBC) will assume responsibility for curbside collection and processing of containers and printed paper. MMBC is requesting 20 cents per kilogram to recycle newsprint, while similar services in Ontario cost less than one cent per kilogram. MMBC managing director Allen Langdon said the fees fully finance the program and ensure service for multifamily apartments and rural depots, in contrast to Ontario’s more limited focus on single-family homes. He said B.C.’s successful containerdeposit system also means there’s less recyclable material left here for container stewards to collect and sell, so fees have to be higher to cover the system costs. Newspaper owners can opt out of the program, but must then develop their own recycling measures. So far, newspapers have chosen the

latter option while lobbying the province to re-examine the changes. “We’re talking to some potential partners right now, but we’re optimistic the government will listen not only to ourselves, but to many businesses and municipalities. There’s a lot of fear about what will happen to recycling,” Nicholson said. He said the MMBC recycling fees threaten to cost jobs and intensify the financial pressure on newspapers, but requests to sit down with provincial ministers have so far gone unmet. Kamloops This Week publisher Kelly Hall said the concern he has with the MMBC program is that businesses and consumers in B.C. will see added costs. “Businesses throughout our province need to become more knowledgable about this proposed program and be very wary about signing up, as MMBC would like us all to do, without knowing what the consequences will be in years to come,” Hall said. “For months, we as a industry have been asking Mary Polak, the minister responsible for bringing this policy forward, to rethink and engage in more dialogue with the proper stakeholders,” Hall said. “To date, we have been unsuccessful. What seems to be a recycling program that will assist British Columbia and the citizens is far from that. “MMBC and our provincial government need to hit the pause button and

bring the stakeholders to the table to design a fair and equitable program that will continue to see B.C. be the leader in Canada when we talk about our recycling programs.” Victoria resident John Hungar, a retired newspaper circulation manager, said he’s concerned the January closure of the Kamloops Daily News may be the start of a trend if the province doesn’t allow newspapers an exemption from recycling fees. “People my age in particular like to read the paper,” Hungar said. “There are some on the verge of closing and I fear these fees could be a strikeout.” Most newspapers in B.C. are owned by Glacier, Black Press and Postmedia, although independent papers still exist and would likely be hit hardest by the changes, Nicholson said. The Canadian Community Newspaper Association, the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses and several other organizations are now ramping up a campaign, rethinkitbc.ca, to convince the province to reconsider its recycling regulations. “B.C. has one of the best recycling plans in the country,” Nicholson said. “It appears to be working very well, now government has decided for whatever reason to turn this over to private industry with very little information about where our recycling will end up. “But, we think this is a solution looking for a problem.”

Meanwhile, B.C.’s small-business minister has defended the province’s shift to a new recycling system. Naomi Yamamoto said the Multi Material BC program transfers recycling costs from taxpayers to the producers who generate packaging and printed paper. “How many of us have come home after purchasing a relatively small item, struggled to unpackage the item and then found yourself with a mountain of waste material that we have no control over?” Yamamoto asked. “This program actually provides an incentive to producers to reduce their packaging.” Yamamoto said the province asked MMBC to work with the small-business community and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce, adding that led to a series of exemptions that absolve 99 per cent of small businesses of requirements to report and pay recycling fees under the new program. NDP small-business critic Lana Popham cited severe business impacts and demanded to know if the province will halt the scheduled May 19 rollout pending better consultation with businesses, municipalities and environmental organizations. “The premier is chucking B.C.’s recycling system into a giant dumpster by completely botching the implementation,” Popham said. “British Columbia deserves to get our recycling right.”

GLOBAL VIEWS

Afghanistan: Mission not accomplished

B

RITAIN’S PRIME Minister David Cameron rambled a bit on his visit to Afghanistan last December, but ended up sounding just as deluded as former U.S. president George W. Bush had been when he proclaimed “Mission accomplished” six weeks after the invasion of Iraq. British troops were sent to Afghanistan, Cameron said, “so it doesn’t become a haven for terror. That is the mission . . . and I think we will have accomplished that mission.” Prime Minister Stephen Harper was equally upbeat when addressing Canadian troops just before they pulled out in 2011. Afghanistan no longer represents a “geostrategic risk to the world [and] is no longer a source of global terrorism,” he said. Both men are technically correct, since Afghanistan never was a “geostrategic risk to the world” or “a haven for terror,” but they must both know the whole war was really a pointless waste of lives. Obviously, neither man can afford to say the soldiers who died in obedience to the orders of their government (448 British troops, 158 Canadians) died in vain, but U.S. President Barack Obama has found a better way to address the dilemma: He just doesn’t offer any assessment of the campaign’s success. “I never doubted Obama’s support for the troops, only his support for their mission,” wrote former defence secretary Robert Gates — and he was right. So was Obama, in the sense he realized the mission, whatever its purpose (the definitions kept changing), was neither doable nor worth doing. But, in fact, he did support it, at least to the extent of not pulling the plug on it — and 1,685 of the 2,315 American soldiers killed in Afghanistan died on his watch. Could do better. Now there’s another “election” coming up in Afghanistan on Saturday, April 5, and at least threequarters of the remaining foreign troops (perhaps all of them) will be gone from the country by the end of this year, and the whole thing is getting ready to fall apart.

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH This will pose no threat to the rest of the world, but it’s going to be deeply embarrassing for the Western leaders who nailed their flags to this particular mast. The election is to replace President Hamid Karzai, who has served two full terms and cannot run again It will be at least as crooked as the last one in 2009 — 20.7-million voters cards have already been distributed in a country where there are only 13.5-million people over the age of 18. Karzai is so confident of remaining the power behind the throne he is building his “retirement” residence next to the presidential palace — but he’s probably wrong. His confidence is based on his skill as a manipulator of tribal politics. Indeed, his insistence the U.S. hand over control of Bagram jail and his subsequent release of 72 hard-core Taliban prisoners was designed to rebuild ties with the prisoners’ families and clans before the election. But, it is that same Taliban organization that will probably make all Karzai’s plans and plots irrelevant. It’s not that the Taliban will sweep back to power all over Afghanistan once Western troops leave. It really only controlled the Pashtun-majority areas of the east and south and the area around the capital even when it was “in power” in 19962001, while the Tajiks, Uzbeks and Hazaras of the “Northern Alliance” ruled the rest. That pattern is likely to reappear, with the Taliban and the northern warlords pushing politicians like Karzai aside — probably not at once, when most or all of the Western troops go home at the end of this year, but a while later, when the flow of aid (which

accounts for 97 per cent of Afghan government spending) finally stops. The U.S.-backed government of South Vietnam did not collapse when American troops went home in 1973, but two years later, when Congress cut the aid to Saigon. The Soviet-backed government of Afghanistan did not collapse when Soviet troops withdrew in 1989, but three years later, after the Soviet Union collapsed and Russia cut the aid. It will happen that way again. The new part-Taliban Afghanistan that emerges will be no more a source of international terrorism than the old part-Taliban Afghanistan was. It was Osama bin Laden and his merry men, mostly Arabs and a few Pakistanis, who plotted and carried out the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, not the Taliban. True, bin Laden et al were guests on Afghan soil at the time, but it is highly unlikely they told the Taliban about the attacks in advance. After all, they were probably going to get their hosts’ country invaded by the United States; best not to bring it up. And there have been no international terrorist attacks coming out of Afghanistan in the past eight years, although the Taliban already control a fair chunk of the country. The election will unfold as Karzai wishes and his preferred candidate (exactly whom is still not clear) will probably emerge as the new president, but this truly is a case of rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic. The second long foreign occupation of Afghanistan in half a century is drawing to a close, and Afghanistan’s own politics and history are about to resume.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Alt-edâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; programs help students gain needed diplomas

D

ID YOU KNOW THERE

are many adults living and working in the community who have never had the opportunity to graduate from high school? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated there are thousands of working British Columbians who do not possess a high-school diploma or equivalent Dogwood certificate. For many, the lack of Grade 12 has not prevented them from securing a job, buying a home or raising a family. Even though life continues, lack of secondary-school credentials can slow or end the career progress of a non-graduate. There are many reasons why students cannot graduate with their peers. Not many plan for a life without high school. Unpredictable circumstances â&#x20AC;&#x201D; family responsibilities, a learning disability, independent living, and more â&#x20AC;&#x201D; can all act as barriers to education and eventual graduation. In spite of the lucky few who have gainful employment, consider the many more facing under- or unemployment. In a competitive job market, the lack of a highschool diploma can mean the difference between landing an interview or not. Additionally, the stigma of being labelled a â&#x20AC;&#x153;high-school drop-outâ&#x20AC;? may stifle the job hunt for some. However, there is good news for non-graduates in School District 73. Several options are available for returning students. Returning to high-school studies as an adult requires fewer credits and work experience can be recognized. One course is worth four credits, therefore many returning students are surprised at how little might be required of them to graduate. Students looking to complete their education in an instructorbased classroom setting can also access the Kamloops Street School. Graduated students looking to upgrade high-school courses may take specific courses tuition-free under certain conditions. It is recommended to discuss upgrades with a

Denise Harper View from the SCHOOL BOARD local school administrator. A student working toward a B.C. adult Dogwood graduate certificate (or Dogwood Diploma) must complete five courses and be at least 18 years old. Courses must include English 12, one Grade 11 math course and either Grade 11 social studies and two Grade 12 courses or three Grade 12 courses. A student must complete 20 credits in order to qualify for graduation. Individually, high schools may also offer alternative-education programs in Kamloops or rural communities: Clearwater, Barriere, Chase and Logan Lake. All it takes is a phone call to the principal, who can connect individuals to the program and the trained staff who help support the goal of graduation. Often referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Altâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alt Ed,â&#x20AC;? individual programs are designed for learners (adults included) who may not benefit from traditional classroom settings, require extra help or do better with a lighter workload. Thompson Rivers University offers the B.C. adult graduation diploma, a Grade 12 equivalent available online. Similar programs are also offered for Grades 10 and 11. Education is a lifelong process. A high school diploma can be the foundation for further education and eventually a career. The first step is to make a phone call to a local principal. This could be the starting point toward achieving secondary-school completion.

How well do you cope with change?

H

OW WELL DO YOU manage change in your life? If you are like most people, you get upset when your favourite television program is preempted, your favourite coffee order is not available, road works change your usual route or — horror of horrors — your Internet is down. Do you remain a creature of habit, or have you become a slave to your routine? You may be surprised to learn many people show signs of withdrawal when a routine changes in their life in many of the same ways they would show symptoms from using alcohol or a drug. If that’s you, that cannot be healthy, can it? If you struggle to cope with minor changes in life, the big ones may really through you for a loop. To quote the great philosophers, life is change and it cannot be avoided, prevented or delayed. Some people accept change in a defeated, depressed style and that is just as unhealthy as being unable to accept the change. Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking was heard to remark, “I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.” The well-known psychiatrist — and Holocaust survivor — Victor Frankl once wrote: “When we are no longer able to change a situation — we are challenged to change ourselves.” Even though this is great advice, it seems to be difficult for some to follow. We did a little research and have come up with six tips to help you accept or make changes in your life: • Go through the day knowing nothing is permanent, no matter how much we may wish it to be so. When we understand nothing lasts forever, we can more easily accept transitions in our lives, careers or families. The realization all things change is often taught in meditation practises and helps us to appreciate what we experience at this moment, rather than spend it worried about losing the moment. • Set priorities — when change is inevitable, look at what is most important to you and try to manage the change while keeping some of the aspects that really matter. Some people stress about moving from one office to another while at the same time believing their job is more important than

the room it happens in. • Quit obsessing about a change — either before it happens or afterward, turn your thoughts to something you do have control over and it can be something small like lunch or something more major like a vacation. • Focus on the positives in the change — all change has its good news and bad news and people who stress about change are focussed too much on the negatives. There is almost always an upside as well. • Incorporate the changes into your life as much as possible — because we find our resistance to change is often about our comfort level more than anything of substance. If we embrace the change and get comfortable again, our need to be resistant dies away. The sky has not fallen and we find new (and sometimes better) ways to enjoy what we once did. • Be in charge of yourself, including your thoughts and feelings — if you are feeling miserable about the changes in your world, are you in charge of the things in your life or are they in charge of you? If someone or something can make you feel sad or upset or whatever you feel, then you are saying that person or thing has more control over you than you have over yourself. It’s not a very healthy or happy way to go through life, one would think. Coping with change may not be rocket science and yet it remains one of the things that causes a great deal of stress. The key to understanding change is that it need not be so stressful at all and to keep in mind that, when we reflect back on anything we are proud of, the achievement only came after a period of discomfort and angst. Now you know that, when you are feeling that discomfort, it is only evidence that you will have something to be proud of up the road. If you have some favourite methods of coping with change, feel free to pass them along, or if you have comments or questions for us, send them to Kamloops@ cmha.bc.ca and follow us on Twitter @CMHAKamloops because we always love to hear from you!

COFFEE SHOP BROKEN INTO AT TRU The staff at the TRU Starbucks coffee shop in the Old Main Building came to work on Sunday March 30th and found that some had broken into the shop. It appears as the suspects gained entry via a rear door to the coffee shop. These suspects had spent some time in the shop as they tried to break into the safe

but were not successful. Good Crime Prevention techniques also stopped the suspects from getting any cash as they forced open the cash drawer but there was nothing inside. Although there are very few people in the building late at night, it is possible that someone may have noticed some suspicious activity, a vehicle

or people leaving the area late at night. Security surveillance cameras are being check to see if the suspects are seen in the area. If you have information on this break and enter, please contact Crime Stoppers, you will remain anonymous and only your information will be used never your name.

VEHICLES STILL BEING BROKEN INTO Thieves were very busy on Tuesday March 25th breaking into at least four vehicles on Skeena dr. in the Juniper Ridge area. The suspects would walk through the area trying door handles of the vehicles parked the street, if there was something of great value they would smash out the driver’s

side window and take what they wanted. The items taken varied from wallets, purses, I phone, laptops, really anything of value. In each of these cases the theft could have been prevented just by removing anything of value. It has been said before do not become a victim, if you see someone in your

neighbourhood, late at night or very early in the morning contact the police and tell them you want to report some suspicious activity. If you have seen people in the area or know who is breaking into the vehicles please contact Crime Stoppers you could receive a cash reward.

Born on October 15, 1960 in Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina

February 25, 1922 – March 31, 2014 On Monday, March 31, 2014, Catherine (Kay) Doris passed away peacefully surrounded by her family. She was born at Polgate, Sussex, England to parents Doris (Barker) and Clement Atkinson.

Kay graduated from the Battle Abby School for Girls, at the location of the 1066 Battle of Hastings in East Sussex, England. She went on to work for the Sea Lords Navel Admiralty in the London office of Lord Mountbatten. Later, during the war years, Kay was transferred to the Admiralty office in Bath. Kay married George Alexander Munro in 1945 when George was stationed in England during WW II. In July 1946 Kay was one of the thousands of war brides who took that romantic journey over the ocean on the ship Aquitania to live with George in Calgary. While living in Calgary, Kay worked at the oil company National Supply as the bookkeeper. George and Kay loved to pack up their motorhome and travel to the Western Canadian and US Dog Shows. In 1981 they retired to Monte Creek enjoying country living and being close to the family. Kay’s hobbies included raising purebred Championship Boxers and West Highland White Terriers at their Beaucrest Kennel. In 2010, The Canadian Kennel Club recognized Kay for 50 years of dedicated service. Kay enjoyed family dinners, winter holidays in Hawaii and knitting sweaters. She continued to knit for the family even as she was losing her vision.

Larry will be lovingly remembered by his two daughters Christina and Samantha both of Mexico, by Michelle, his true love and her two sons Kris and Kelsey of Kamloops. His mother Marlene of Red Deer. His brothers Ron (Ivy) Edmonton, Randy (Judy) Drumheller and Darcy (Brenda) Stettler. Numerous nieces and nephews, Aunts and Uncles and extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his infant sister Cheryl Ann and his father Alfred Wintringham (1989), his maternal and paternal grandparents. The family was in Argentina for Alf’s work, they relocated back to Canada in 1962. Larry attended school in many different communities but graduated in Fort St John, BC. As in life many changes came his way. He owned his own business in Red Deer putting a lot of pride in every flooring job he did. He met the love he had been searching for in Michelle. His hobbies in woodworking and a new found family changed his direction. Once again he was drawn to the west only to settle in Kamloops. Here he found, new life long friends, at the New Gold Inc mine. It is with great sadness that we say goodbye. A Celebration of Larry’s life will be held on Friday, April 11th at 1:00pm in the Schoening Funeral Chapel. Should friends desire, donations to the charity of one’s choice would be appreciated in Larry’s memory.

The family would like to thank the staff at Ponderosa, Active Care Seniors Services, the Seniors Village, Dr. Kip, Dr. Terry Simpson and Sue for the care given Mom over the years.

A life well lived came to an end for Joan Saucier (nee Butt) of Kamloops and Kelowna BC. Joan passed away peacefully at the Marjorie WilloughbySnowden Hospice in Kamloops at 2:12 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, one day before her 88th birthday, surrounded by all her family. Joan was predeceased by husband Bert who passed away in October 2004 and her brothers Doug and Jack Butt. Mum is lovingly remembered by her four children Laurie (Nejama Ferstman), Alan (Allison Dalgleish), Jill (Alan Sanders) and Kathy (Gary Aldus) and sister Gwen James. Also present at her passing were grandchildren Julie, Erin, James, Carmen, Harrison, Alexander, Paige, Georgia and Caelan, as well as Jim and Heather Bottoms, Steven Clarke and nephew Jack James. Also left to grieve her passing are Pat Scott, Bob James, her niece and nephew. Mum’s passing has left a huge void in all our lives and left us forever changed. Nana wed “Papa” Bert in 1949 in Kelowna BC and after having her four children, moved to Kamloops in 1963 where she quickly became active in the Kamloops community. Nana endeared herself to all she knew through her kindness, good humour, self-sacrifice and caring. Heavily involved in the lives of her four children, she became close to many of their friends and families as well. Nana was instrumental in the success of the family business in Kamloops and did double duty as a mother and office manager for many years. Her greatest satisfaction was participating in the successes of her children and grandchildren and supporting causes which were dear to her heart: animal welfare, the environment and the CBC, among others. Nana touched other people’s lives in so many strange and wonderful ways and will live on in their memories and gratitude. The family has so many to thank for their care of Mum but would especially like to thank the loving staff at the Marjorie Willoughby-Snowden Hospice, Royal Inland Hospital and, in particular, Dr. Jonat and Dr. Hamilton. Additionally, we are forever grateful for the patient and loving care provided by Janice at Community Health and Natalie and Jennifer from Nurse Next Door. A celebration of life will be held at the Parkside Lounge, Interior Savings Centre, 300 Lorne Street, Kamloops, on Saturday May 3 from 1:30 - 4:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Marjorie Willoughby-Snowden Hospice, the SPCA, the Humane Society, Friends of CBC or the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation.

Blazers serving community The Kamloops Blazers, with the help of season-ticket holders, fans and sponsors, have contributed $283,222 to community partners and local organizations. Highlights include the donation of $13,000 worth of tick-

ets to the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association. KMHA teams were also able to raise $47,000 through the Blazers’ fundraiser ticket program. Other fundraising efforts included the CIBC Run for the

Cure, Movember, Teddy Bear and food bank Nights, Christmas Amalgamated and Bowl for Kids Sake, which benefits Big Brother and Big Sisters of Kamloops. The Blazers help out with Special Olympics floor hockey

and Peter Puck, and players visit patients at Royal Inland Hospital. The Blue and Orange also continued its partnership with the Kamloops RCMP for the EDGE (Educate, Develop, Grow, Excel) program.

Vikings’ rugby girls back from U.S. tournament A predominantly under-15 team at an under-18 tournament, the Valleyview Vikings’ girls rugby team proved they can play with the big kids at the Fullerton Rugby High School International Invitational in March. Valleyview brought home a second-place finish in the plate division, fourth overall in the tournament, against some of

the best competition in North America. The tournament, which took place in Fullerton, Calif., involved 12 girls rugby teams. “For not being on grass, and going to a tournament where we’re playing the first- and second- and the 10- and 11thranked teams in the U.S., we actually played really well,” said Valleyview head coach

Andy Van Kuyk. “We only lost to the secondranked team, 10-0.” Valleyview won two games and lost three, falling to Back Bay 10-0 in the girls’ plate final. Van Kuyk said the team is hoping to return to the tournament every couple of years and should have an older team down the road, with a number of its players returning.

WolfPack hand out year-end awards With another season in the books for the TRU WolfPack, there was a night of recognition on Thursday, April 3, as the athletics department handed out its annual awards during its banquet in TRU’s Grand Hall. The ceremony celebrated the achievements of the university’s 12 athletics teams, with nine WolfPack studentathletes taking hardware home from the event. Headlining the evening, Alanna Bekkering of the WolfPack women’s soccer team and Brad Gunter of the WolfPack men’s volleyball team were named the Sports Task Force athletes of the year. Bekkering, who played her final season with the WolfPack in 2013-2014, led the

Pacific Western Athletic Association in scoring and took her team to a third-consecutive league title and a national championship bronze medal. She was also an allCanadian, the PacWest’s female athlete of the year and a finalist for both Sport B.C.’s college athlete of the year and the Kamloops Sports Council’s female athlete of the year. Gunter was dominant in his third season with the WolfPack and has raked in awards since his team’s season ended in Canada West bronze earlier this year. He led the conference in scoring and kills and was named the men’s volleyball player of the year by both Canadian Interuniversity Sport

and Canada West. Bekkering and Gunter beat out a list of nominees that included women’s basketball’s Jorri Duxbury, crosscountry’s Alisha Miller, badminton’s Anica Arduini and Lacey Banman, men’s soccer’s Justin Wallace, baseball’s Cam Strachan and men’s basketball’s Ta’Quan Zimmerman. Duxbury wasn’t shut out on Thursday, however, as she received the Dr. Roger H. Barnsley Scholar-Athlete Award for women’s athletics. Basketball’s Brett Rouault captured the award on the men’s side. Both Duxbury and Rouault are science students. Receiving the Cliff Neufeld Award for their community involvement

were men’s volleyball captain Colin Carson and women’s basketball’s Taiysa Worsfold. Earlier this year, Carson became the first WolfPack athlete to receive the CIS’s Dale Iwanoczko Award, recognizing the same attributes. Both athletes were heavily involved with the WolfPack’s community initiatives, including Raise-a-Reader and Wendy’s Dreamlift Day. Worsfold also maintained her standing as a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kamloops. Finally, receiving the Tyler Lowey Award for overcoming adversity was Corey Storkan of the WolfPack cheer squad. Storkan, a native of Lillooet, returned

to the cheer squad and competed with the team after having undergone heart surgery earlier this year. New awards this season included the Newcomer of the Year, which went to basketball’s Sydney Williams, and the Director’s Award, which was given to volleyball’s Spencer Reed. Williams was named the Canada West’s rookie of the year earlier this season and started 23 of 24 games in her first season with the WolfPack. Reed, who recently completed his sixth season with the WolfPack having redshirted his first year, was involved in many community awards and was a member of the WolfPack’s captain’s council.

Lower expectations for Blue Jays Co-ed soccer league all about fun

A

FTER ALL THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS hype that went pffffftt!! last year, maybe a quiet offseason and low expectations will lead to a surprising result this year. Blue Jays’ fans can only hope so. As the 2014 Major League Baseball season gets underway this week, the Jays are poised — according to most of the experts — to finish fourth or fifth in the five-team American League East. That’s just fine with general manager Alex Anthopoulos and manager John Gibbons because last year, most of those same experts had the Jays pegged to finish first. The optimism in 2013, of course, was due to the plethora of off-season acquisitions — chiefly pitchers R.A. Dickey, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle, infielder Jose Reyes and talented hitter Melky Cabrera. The Jays won a dismal 74 times and lost 88 and finished dead last. The knuckleball Dickey threw to win the Cy Young award in 2012 with the Mets was too often bashed into the seats in 2013, Johnson couldn’t get anyone out and Reyes missed half the season with a broken ankle. Compared to the year before, this most recent off-season was quiet. Anthopoulos made only a few minor moves, letting Johnson go as a free agent and releasing catcher J.P. Arencibia, signing 30-year-old journeyman Dioner Navarro in his stead. Despite their 2013 failings, the Jays have a solid core lineup. Jose Bautista is one of the game’s best sluggers and hit an MLB-

BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW leading six spring-training homers. Cabrera, Edwin Encarnacion, Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie are established big-league hitters. Colby Rasmus had a great first half before injuries got in the way. The pitching staff of Dickey, Buehrle, Brandon Morrow, the oftinjured Dustin McGowan and Drew Hutchison is, potentially, a strong quintet. Ah, there’s that word again — potentially. Look at the Jays’ lineup from the north and you could logically say they have, potentially, a pennant-winning crew. Look at the team from the south and you could logically say they’re potentially a basement-dweller. We’ll know for sure 162 games from now. They threw a negative surprise at their fans last year; maybe in 2014, the surprise will be a positive one. Care to comment? Email brucepenton2003@yahoo.ca

For Jim Pedersson, soccer has always been as much about socializing as exercising. Pedersson, 60, is one of about 50 athletes playing in the Kamloops Co-Ed Recreational Soccer League — a fun and inclusive club in which players ages 18 to 100 can play the sport, meet others and “just be kids again,” said organizer Hamish Plommer. For Pedersson, who still remembers playing soccer in Burnaby with his father and fellow Danish immigrant friends one Sunday morning in 1964, it does exactly that. “Playing soccer has always been a healthy diversion from my work life,” the retired teacher and coach told KTW. “It has kept me reasonably fit and mentally strong.” Soccer has been a lifelong sport for Pedersson, who grew up playing in East Vancouver for the likes of the Grandview

Weather permitting, City crews will begin spring sweeping of streets in the valley bottom and working into the higher elevations throughout the City. The Spring Sweeping program on average requires 6 to 8 weeks to complete. In an effort to reduce sweeping time and costs, signs will be posted in the areas that are being swept advising the public not to park on the street. Some high density areas will have parking restrictions posted and/or notices delivered in advance of sweeping, for example, downtown east. Residents who wish to sweep the area in front of their property are advised to remove the pile of sand accumulated as these piles can damage a sweeper, and operators are instructed to swerve around such piles. Your co-operation is appreciated. Inquiries can be made by calling 250-828-3461.

usual comment is get back to sexual activity — but I wanted to play soccer. “He had to laugh and said, ‘No one has ever asked me that one before.’” The Co-Ed Recreational Soccer League will be meeting every Friday at 6 p.m. at Cottonwood Field (750 Cottonwood Ave.). Players should bring cleats, shin pads and a white and a dark shirt, and can drop-in for $3 or register for the entire season for $50.

Six months after the operation, he was back on the field, kicking a ball. “I was having so much fun playing,” Pedersson said, recalling his appointment with his doctor. “I asked my doctor, how soon can you, after surgery — the

He has memories playing and working alongside the likes of Canadian soccer greats like Gerry Heaney, Brian Gant and Norm McLeod. When he thought his playing days were over, he transitioned to coaching and working as an athletic trainer. Even in those competitive days, the social part of the sport is what kept Pedersson going. It’s what drives him now all these years later and what has had him come out of more than one self-imposed retirement. “I’ve been involved in just about every aspect of playing the game and being involved in the game,” he said. “It was nice because I had such a good experience playing at school when I was a

Also on Friday’s slate are interviews with CFJC and another media rendezvous with KTW. Other stops this week include R.L. Clemitson and Westmount elementary schools and Ponderosa Lodge, along with a celebration of the city’s Olympians at McArthur on Saturday, April 5. Elli Terwiel, a slalom skier from Sun Peaks who competed for Canada at the Games in Russia, will be in attendance, along with Jan Antons, an equipment manager with Canada’s sledge-hockey team, and local dignitaries. The Long Blades, the City of Kamloops and PacificSport Interior BC are hosting the opento-the-public Saturday event, which runs from noon to 2 p.m. Hewitt, along with Canadian teammates Valerie Maltais, Marianne St. Gelais and MarieEve Drolet, won silver in the women’s 3,000-metre relay final in Sochi on Feb. 18. Hewitt is adjusting nicely

to the role of local hero, relishing the opportunity to give back to her community. “I’m pretty comfortable with it,” she said. “I like that everyone’s really excited about it.” The Canadian Olympian is also enjoying time with family and friends, which has been tough to come by since joining the national team in 2009. “I’m seeing friends. My mom is taking some time off and we’re going to show my boyfriend Sun Peaks,” Hewitt said. “It’s cool to see how the city has changed. I haven’t been here in three or four years. It’s changed quite a bit.” Hewitt will reflect on her past and ponder her future in Perth,

A LITTLE ADVICE

can go a long way

AN ADVISOR CAN HELP YOU REACH YOUR FINANCIAL GOALS Determining what your financial goals are, let alone achieving them, can be overwhelming. Seeking support and advice from a professional can go a long way towards helping you define and reach your objectives. Some people don’t seek the advice of an advisor when they make decisions that affect their long-term financial well-being. Why? They may be unaware of all the services and resources these professionals provide. Let’s start by dispelling the myth that advisors are only for rich people. Whatever your net worth, and whether you are just starting out in the workforce or beginning to think seriously about retirement, you can benefit from consulting an advisor. An advisor begins by completing an analysis of your financial situation. Based on that assessment, the advisor can create a comprehensive plan of action to help you meet your financial goals. A good financial plan will include a review of many things, including life insurance, disability coverage, critical illness protection, wills, estate planning, debt management, investments and retirement savings.

An advisor can only do an effective job if he or she has a complete picture of your finances. You are sharing very confidential information, so the relationship between you and your advisor should be comfortable and trusting. Ideally, it should also be an ongoing one that lasts for many years. It’s also important for you to be realistic about your expectations. Seeking help from an advisor doesn’t mean you’ll get double-digit investment returns or magically eliminate your debt. A continuing financial review should be part of your lifestyle, just like your annual check-up with your family doctor. Take a few minutes to meet with your advisor to ensure your financial plan is on track. And if you don’t yet have a financial plan, it’s never too late to create one.

Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best ads at TRU Alumni Theatre By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Fast-forwarding through commercials may have become the norm when watching television, but the TV ads headed to the Thompson Rivers University Alumni Theatre donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much in common with those found between the average weeknight sitcom. From April 11 to April 13, the theatre will screen the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best commercials of 2013, as selected at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, as a fundraiser for the Kamloops Art Gallery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a bit of a different flair,â&#x20AC;? said gallery board member Anita Grover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s European, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other countries.â&#x20AC;? Each year, over 3,000 commercials from around the globe are submitted to the French festival for judging, with about 40 of the top contenders making their way into

TRUDI BACKMAN: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just wanted to come up with something different.â&#x20AC;?

the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best tape. Award-winning campaigns range from product-based spots to public service announcements. In 2013, an Australian agency took home the lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of prizes for its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dumb Ways to Dieâ&#x20AC;? campaign promoting rail safety for a Melbourne rail company. While a few of the commercials will hail from North America (past domestic picks include Old Spiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viral â&#x20AC;&#x153;The man your man could smell likeâ&#x20AC;? ad featuring Isaiah Mustafa), Grover said most will be unfamiliar to local audiences.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone to one youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go over and over,â&#x20AC;? said Grover, who first attended a screening of Cannes finalists on an early date with her husband. In Winnipeg, where the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art gallery has shown Cannes commercials for three decades, the event is popular enough to require 16 screenings each year. KAG fundraising chair Trudi Backman said the event is a chance for the art gallery to connect with a broader swath of the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we think of fundraisers we think of either gala events, or gala events or more gala events,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just wanted to come up with something different.â&#x20AC;? Screenings of the commercials run at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. April 11, 2 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on April 12 and 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on April 13. Tickets are available through the Kamloops Live box office at kamloopslive.ca or

Students choose final act before grad By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

With the end of another school year in sight, it’s time for the third- and fourth-year theatre-arts students at Thompson Rivers University to show off. The 15th annual Directors Festival is now on at the university’s Black Box Theatre in the Old Main Building. It’s six nights of one-act plays chosen by the 10 graduating students in the directing class, with casts made up of the thirdyear acting students. For both groups, it’s more than a chance to perform — it will go toward their final marks.

13 14

Theatre co-ordinator Robin Nichol, who teaches the directing course, said this year’s selection ranges from the dark to the funny, with the shortest play the eightminute Looks Get in the Way, directed by Nich Gulycz and starring Kristine Lucas and Dan Ondang, and the longest The 27-minute Do Over, directed by Mercedes Basford and starring Taran Waterous and Ashley Duggan. Nichol’s students choose their plays in September and submit them to her and technical director Mark Anderson to decide if they can be done in the theatre, will involve all the thirdyear acting students

— supplemented by others, if necessary — and are works the students can handle. “When I inherited the class from David [Edwards, who is retired], he said ‘I let them do what they want to do,’” Nichol said. Balancing the need for students to learn, however, is the reality the public is invited to spend their money and come see the works, so it’s important to ensure it’s a good, engaging festival. This year’s event differs from last year’s because it has more light pieces. “It’s always an interesting selection,” Nichol said. “They all go different ways. “There are some comedies, some that are a big dark. Last year was very dark and this year, less so. “A lot of them are on-the-edge dramedies.” Admission is $12 or $18 for two nights. The plays alternate nights. Tickets are at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca, or at the theatre box office.

Directors Festival schedule NIGHT A (April 7, April 9 and April 11)

NIGHT B (April 8,April 10 and April12)

Just Knots by Christina Gorman (10 minutes) Directed by Christine Leroux Dennis – Tyrell Waterston Patty – Krysty Craig Dennis owns a mall kiosk where he sells his ability to tie knots and Patty is a potential customer with a problem. When the two meet, Patty immediately tests Dennis’ abilities and his morals, ultimately sending the two on a customerservice experience unlike any other.

Looks Get in the Way by DM Larson (8 minutes) Directed by Nich Gluycz Sidney – Krystine Lucas Phil – Dan Ondang Phil does not get a date very often and, when he finally does get one, it’s with a sweet and innocent girl, Sidney. But, she’s wearing a mask to the date. At least they both like Star Trek and battered green beans, right?

ACT I Daniel on a Thursday by Garth Wingfield (20 minutes) Directed by Matt Hardy Daniel – Kory Cudmore Kevin – Joe Bunn Kevin meets Daniel at a bar; his old bud from high school. Or is he? Do they really know each other? Or are they strangers? See what could happen between two people in one night . . . Warning: Coarse Language

Coyote Stratagem by Guadalupe Flores (17 minutes) Directed by Megan Graham Vicki – Qianpei Lu Erin – Heidi Robinson/ Emily Thibert Inspired by Wile E Coyote’s Road Runner shenanigans, this is an honest exploration of love in the face of change. The characters express their difficult emotions through a complex system of visual, verbal and physical communication tools. If only we all had a stick of chalk to tell our stories.

ACT I The Rental by Mark Harvey Levine (15 minutes) Directed by Andrew Robertson Sonya – Kaliey Clark Harold – Ryan Lavery Sonya is 30, single and alone on her birthday. What sort of birthday gift do you get for just such a friend? The man of her dreams, of course! But, only for the day. Then he has to go back to the shop. Perfect boyfriends aren’t cheap, you know.

A Second of Pleasure by Neil LaBute (17 minutes) Directed by Brooke Ballam Jess – CJ Renee Kurt – Joel Feenstra Isn’t it amazing when you realize one little thing can change your life? Kurt and Jess have a romantic getaway planned for the weekend. But, at the last minute, Jess realizes she doesn’t want to go.

ACT II Do Over by Frederick Stroppel (27 minutes) Directed Mercedes Basford Dennis – Taran Waterous Lisa – Ashley Duggan Wouldn’t it be great if we could change our past? Well that’s exactly what Dennis gets a chance to do. He gets to try to do it all over again with ex-girlfriend Lisa.

ACT II On the Porch One Crisp Spring Morning by Alex Dremann (10 minutes) Directed by Wyatt Purcha Daughter – Maddy Henry Mother – M’Lissa O’Neil A delightful brunch, the splendid aroma of freshly brewed coffee filling the crisp morning air and a peaceful breeze grazing the back porch under a warm blue sky. It’s almost a shame someone is going to have to die.

Awkward Silence by Jay Reiss (10 minutes) Directed by Allison Clow Man – Erik Stephany Woman – Alley Barton A man and woman are tired of the endless first dates and the boring, repetitive conversations that come with them. After being set up by a mutual friend, they must find a way to fight through the awkward silences if they have any hope of making a true connection.

The Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda by Jennifer Camp (25 minutes) Directed by Andrew Cooper Ben – Josh Sunderman Lillian – Jessica Buchanan Lillian and Ben are attracted to one another. The only trouble is they’ve never met. They’ve only seen each other in the lobby of the American Museum of Natural History where they’ve each been mysteriously drawn.

Something fishy at KAG By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

If it was crunch time for the Arbour Aboriginal Aritsts’ Collective members gathered in the Tricia Sellmer and Ken Lepin studios at the Kamloops Art Gallery one Thursday evening, it didn’t feel like it. About half a dozen collective members traded jokes and rollers of coloured ink as they printed stacks of coloured cloth with images of fish and Sepwecmc words, the final step in a project in the works at the gallery for the past three months. Over a series of Thursdaynight drop in sessions, collective members created images of 11 fish found within the traditional territory of the Tk’emlups Indian Band. At the marathon printing session on in mid-March, each was reproduced more than a dozen times in different colours. Each print also features the fish’s Sepwecmc name.

Starting this weekend, strings of the prints will decorate the walls of the art gallery’s BMO Gallery in a new exhibit entitled Swewll — the Sepwecmc word for fish. “It’s sort of like prayer ties, Buddhist prayer ties,” said Arbour facilitator Chris Bose. “Each one we make, we’re praying for the fish to come back.” The project is a collaboration between the collective and Tania Willard, the art gallery’s aboriginal curator in residence. Willard ran a similar project in conjunction with the Splatsin Teaching Centre and Runaway Moon Theatre in Enderby. Bose founded the Arbour collective with fellow local artist Nacoma George in 2011, with a focus on First Nations art and mentoring young artists by teaching them to write grants, secure exhibitions and improve their work. While the focus is on supporting First Nations artists, Bose said the group welcomes everyone.

“There’s this chasm between native and non-native people and what we don’t know about each other,” he said. “And, the only way you can bridge that is by doing art and opening a space for people to hang out and dialogue and get to know each other.” Members of the group range in age from teenagers to adults. Collective artists have shown work in various Vancouver galleries, Kelowna, and at Thompson Rivers University and the Arnica Artist-Run Centre. Arbour also holds workshops for school and community groups and has held sessions on documentary filmmaking, painting and graffiti art. Once Swewll is complete, Bose said the group will tackle silkscreening at its Thursdaynight art gallery drop-in sessions, with an eye to creating a logo for the collective. Swewll runs at the Kamloops Art Gallery, 465 Victoria St., until June 15, with an opening reception April 5.

KEN SMEDLEY presents

Tuesday, April 8 7:30 pm Sagebrush Theatre, Kamloops

Thanks to Eleanor Thompson’s family company, Connors Drilling, which founded a bursary in Trades in 2008. We are grateful to Eleanor who has now donated an additional $100,000 to create an endowed nursing bursary in memory of her mother, Catherine Gowans Chappell and her mother’s best friend, Vivian Noble Shaw who both completed their training at the Royal Inland Hospital.

By choosing to give to Thompson Rivers University, our donors are making a powerful difference... in our students’ lives, in our community, in our world.

Thank you, from TRU.
