Bus-fare evasion costs city $48,000 per year By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops transit riders are more likely to pay for their bus rides than their counterparts in other cities across the province, but lost fares still cost the city about $48,000 a year, or about $4,000 per month. BC Transit spokeswoman Meribeth Burton said the average transit system loses about four per cent of its revenue per month to fare avoidance, either from people who refuse to pay or who

pay less than full fare. In Kamloops, fare evasion costs the city about 1.3 per cent of its revenue, with passengers underpaying or refusing to pay most often on routes 1, 3 and 9, which are also the city’s busiest routes. Burton said BC Transit’s policy is to “inform, not enforce” bus-fare rates. If a passenger doesn’t pay the full amount, or does not pay at all, the driver will enter that information by pushing a button on the fare box and

let the rider onboard. “The No. 1 cause of operatorcustomer conflict is fares,” Burton said. “So, we encourage our operators to simply let the person know the fares are $2.25 or, if it’s the seniors’ discount, to inform of the correct fare. “To educate, but not to put themselves at risk or even start an unpleasant conflict — that is our policy.” Burton said Kamloops’ rate of fare evasion is “really low,” noting BC Transit encourages cities

to offer flat rates for cash fares, instead of the two-tiered system Kamloops uses, and to push riders toward monthly passes and prepaid tickets to try to keep conflicts to a minimum. Because data entered at the fare box is imprecise, Burton said, it’s difficult to determine whether the money the city is losing is coming from people who are refusing to pay at all or from those who are a quarter or a dime short of their fare. But, she said, abuse of bus transfers likely plays a role.

In Kamloops, a transfer expires 90 minutes after a rider gets off the bus. “People tend to abuse transfers and use them four hours later or hold on to them and try to use them the following day,” Burton said. Last year, transit fares brought in $3.7 million in revenue, which stays with the city. City council will look at increasing the cost of a bus ride next year, as it prepares to roll out another 6,0000-hour service expansion and add more buses to its fleet.

Teachers offered six-year deal, signing bonus

Government floats 6.5 per cent wage hike; no change on class composition By Dale Bass

Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for the province’s 60 school districts, said the government’s wage offer is consistent with settlements with other public sector employee groups. Black Press photo

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The chairwoman of the KamloopsThompson board of education is disappointed with the latest move by the provincial government as it seeks to ratify a contract with B.C.’s public-school teachers. Denise Harper said a decision by the government to claw back five per cent of teachers’ salaries if the current job action does not end and 10 per cent if it escalates into rotating strikes “concerns me because, boards, to the best of my knowledge, have not been consulted with on this — and I would have heard if we have.” Harper said she fears the move, announced along with a package that includes an offer of a six-year deal and a $1,200 singing bonus — one that comes with conditions — “may make it more difficult to get a collective agreement. It’s disappointing.” The latest proposal was presented on Friday, May 16, to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) by Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for the province’s 60 school districts. The bonus is contingent on settling the dispute before the end of the school year.

However, BCTF president Jim Iker said putting that money into the salary grid might have gone further in bringing both sides together. He said having no pay increase for the first two years of the proposal is unreasonable. The five per cent pay cut will be implemented if the job action now in place, one that sees teachers not provide supervision outside of the classroom and not communicate with administration, does not

end. A second stage of rotating strikes, authorized in a March strike vote, would result in a 10 per cent reduction in teachers’ salaries. The BCTF cannot implement a provincewide walkout without returning to its memberships for another vote. Iker called the clawback proclamation another threat from a government the B.C. Supreme Court has already said bargained in bad faith in the last round of negotiations. In February, Justice

Susan Griffin, in handing down a decision on the BCTF challenge to win back its rights to bargain classroom size and composition, said the government had bargained in bad faith. She fined the government $2 million and said she believed the government had tried to provoke a strike for political reasons. The province is appealing her decision. Jason Karpuk, president of the KamloopsThompson Teachers’ Association, said he

doesn’t think the signing bonus will make much impact on teachers, but dropping the 10-year contract-length requirement might. He questioned the legality of the potential clawback. “They’re entitled to do what they think they need to do,” he said of the government’s move. “It will be up to the Labour Relations Board to decide if they can legally do it.” Karpuk said he hopes the recent move will create momentum at the

bargaining table, but added the government has to understand the education system needs to be funded better. “When you have 60 out of 60 [school] districts saying they have a deficit, there’s something wrong.” The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association has dropped its plan to start billing the union for the cost of benefits, estimated at $5 million a month, opting for the pay cut in an effort to persuade the union to stop its phase one strike action. The BCTF filed a complaint with the labour relations board on May 14, contesting that plan. There was no change to BCPSEA’s latest general wage proposal, a 6.5 per cent increase over six years. Iker earlier termed it a “lowball offer” that B.C.’s 40,000 teachers would be unlikely to accept. Cameron said the government’s wage offer is consistent with settlements with other public sector employee groups. He estimated the

union’s latest proposal is a 15.9 per cent increase over four years. That, he said is “not in the ballpark” of other public-sector union settlements. The BCTF estimates its wage demand at 13.25 per cent over four years, including cost-ofliving increases. The new term length is a small modification of the earlier proposal, which was for a 10-year deal with wage negotiations to reopen for the final four years. That proposal would have meant the BCTF couldn’t strike after six years if it didn’t accept the wage extension, because teachers would still be under contract. Iker said the 10-year term was never workable and, after 16 months of Premier Christy Clark’s promises, he’s pleased to see it off the table. Unions representing 47,000 health-care workers announced on Thursday, May 15, they are recommending their members accept a five-year settlement that includes a 5.5 per cent wage increase. Workers in hospitals, residential-care facilities, emergency health services and supply and logistics will begin voting on the settlement next week. — with files from Black Press

Mounties bust gang-affiliated drug ring Homes in Sahali, Westsyde and Batchelor Heights targeted and searched by Kamloops RCMP; seven people arrested By Tim Petruk

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops Mounties say they have put a dent in the Tournament Capital’s drug trade with their bust of a gang-affiliated drug ring that resulted in the seizure of drugs, electronics and a lot of guns. RCMP Supt. Brad Mueller said the bust was the result of a three-month investigation. Speaking to reporters on Friday, May 16, Mueller said seven people were arrested. Six have since been released from custody on promises to appear in court. A seventh person arrested, Jason Robertson, 36, was later granted $100,000 bail in Kamloops

provincial court. On May 7 and May 8, police executed search warrants on three Kamloops homes owned by Robertson — one in Sahali, one in Westsyde and one in Batchelor Heights. The Sahali home was Robertson’s main residence, police said. Mueller said Mounties seized about 10 ounces of cocaine, 15 pounds of marijuana, various drug-trafficking paraphernalia, thousands of dollars worth of electronics and 40 firearms. Mueller would not say which criminal organization the alleged drug-trafficking ring was linked to, but Hells Angels support stickers were among the seized items shown to reporters. “Organized criminal activity will not

be tolerated,” he said. “I���m not prepared to get into the specifics of organized crime and gang activity. I can say Mr. Robertson was a significant and known target to the Kamloops RCMP.” Robertson is facing eight charges — five counts of possessing a weapon obtained through offence, two counts of possessing stolen property and one count of careless use of a firearm. Other people arrested during the investigation are expected to face drug-related charges. Police also seized $50,000 as part of the investigation. Robertson is set to return to court on June 19.

Sweet dreams and migrating birds By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It seems strange to listen to a couple of scientists talk about “fuzzy logic.” It’s particularly weird when those two scientists are referring to the purest of logic — numbers — but talking about a “grey scale.” Even the partnering of researchers — Mila Kwiatkowska is on the faculty of the computerscience department while Frank Pouw is a graduate student in environmental science — seems unlikely, with one relying on the computer for analysis and the other out in the wild, listening to bird songs. It’s one of the beauties of research at Thompson Rivers University, they agreed, the opportunity for different disciplines to work together on seemingly disparate projects, but which have some commonality. In this case, it’s that fuzzy logic, looking at data and drawing inferences, generalities — indicators that point to, but do not necessarily land firmly on, a fact. For Kwiatkowska, the data relates to predicting people who might develop sleep apnea,

identifying them so medical treatment can begin sooner. For Pouw, the data comes from recording devices in the wild, listening to bird songs and, from those notes, identifying what birds are migrating where and when. Kwiatkowska explained the goal is to see “if we can find patterns, rules from the data and, with my research, to make assumptions on if someone may have obstructive-sleep apnea.” Working with Les Matthews, associate

professor of respiratory therapy, questions were devised to provide responses that can be qualified. “And, from them, we can find people are really suffering and can start treatment,” Kwiatkowska said. Being able to make a determination before formal medical testing is valuable, she said, because it helps a person kickstart the process that leads to treatment. Pouw encountered Kwiatkowska by accident, approaching her

with all his ecological data and looking for a way to analyze it efficiently. “With most of nature, there are these gradients and we have to use fuzzy logic when we look at them,” he said. “I thought there could be a better way to deal with the data.” Pouw had a wealth of data, using automatedrecording devices to replace the earlier method of heading out, clipboard in hand, stopping every few minutes to listen to the songs, assess-

ing them and recording the information. It was also a costly process involving many man-hours of labour that could be collected quickly and efficiently through technology. “Science is about collecting the best-quality data,” Pouw said. For both, the key issue is context. “Why and how do you use the data,” Kwiatkowska said. “For example, with apnea, we don’t need all the details to take action.”

Aging like fine wine — if the wine is Thunderbird, perhaps

I

T WAS WHILE I WAS suspended 218 feet in the air above east Vancouver and spinning around at 70 km/h that the first twang of nausea spread from my lower stomach and up to my throat. Was I going to spray my breakfast over the Playland crowd below? Thankfully, no. The weekend visit to all those crazy midway rides continued and the kids and I kept rising and falling and spinning and dipping as we rode the Corkscrew, Atmosfear, Crazy Beach Party and Pirate Ship. I gamely plodded on while fighting the nausea and spinning in my head even as I was on terra firma. My son and daughter saw that I was white as a ghost and laughed. “You’re getting old, dad,” they would say and laugh as their old man’s bleak journey continued. And, it turns out, they were right. Two years earlier, the three of us had visited Playland for a day. We rode virtually every ride a half-dozen times and not once did nausea pay a visit. While I could find no definitive research linking motion sickness to aging, there is plenty of belief that the brain’s equilibrium sentinel – the inner ear — gets more confused with all the twisting and turning as one ages. The fact my 45-year-old self had a queasy experience while my 43-yearold self was as giddy as a kid is proof enough for me. There is a scientific word for the deleterious effects of aging. That word would be “sucks.”

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom MUSINGS Oh, does it suck. The nausea-induced visit to Playland was just the latest in a series of evidence that my poor body is falling part. Yes, I still think I feel like I am 25, but every ache and pain and twinge tells me the truth. Heck, my dad died almost two years ago, but I hear him every time I get up off the couch and that old-man groan rumbles, involuntarily, out of my mouth. There’s my knee, which has a meniscus problem that was manageable until I started training for Boogie the Bridge this spring. Suddenly, I was lurching around the newsroom like an extra in The Walking Dead, limping and dragging my left leg as I went. It’s been months now. Apparently, like the zombie I cannot help but imitate as I walk, the injury can never die. It’s gotta be linked to getting older. There’s my right forearm. Along the outside bone lies a persistent yellowish bruise that won’t go away.

At first, I feared it was a sign of a terminal disease until a friend reminded me of the night I had tripped and fallen in my living room. I blamed the cat. The cat blamed the wine. The cat is probably correct. Still, I have been jettisoned from moving vehicles while in my teens and had bruises the size of Iowa heal faster than this yellow menace on my arm. It’s gotta be linked to getting older. There’s my vision. I wear glasses and, until this year, had no problems reading the fine print on papers and objects. This week, I found myself imitating Mr. Magoo as I checked the ingredients on a can of food. I held the can at arm’s length. I held the can three millimetres from my nose. I tilted my head back and winded my eyes. I leaned my head forward and squinted with intensity. Nothing worked. It’s gotta be linked to getting older. Come to think of it, the fact I was checking ingredients has to be linked to getting older. There was a time I would eat anything without caring about what was in it. Alas, that was back in the day I walked to school uphill. Both ways. In the snow. Today, that walk would require a cane, bifocals and enough wine to ward off zombie hunters. Yep, 45 must be the new 70. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Why would Trudeau create this issue? Since being elected leader of the Liberal Party of Canada 13 months ago, Justin Trudeau has again and again shown he can raise eyebrows. There was his comment about Quebec being a nation. There was his statement that the Boston Marathon bombers may have left excluded from society. There was his quip tying Russia’s loss to Canada in hockey at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games to Russia’s ongoing annexation attempts in eastern Ukraine. There was his declaration of admiration for China’s dictatorship and its ability to manage the economy. All those gaffes created some headlines, but the son of Pierre Elliott Trudeau continues to do well in the polls and keeps packing them in wherever he speaks. His latest newsworthy moment came earlier this month when he said all Liberal candidates (with the exception of incumbent MPs who may hold differing views) in next year’s federal election must have pro-choice views. It is a confusing edict, considering the abortion debate has not been an election issue in Canada. Yes, some Conservative MPs have attempted to stoke the pro-life fire, but they have been shot down time and again by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. When Trudeau famously dismissed all Liberal senators from his party, it was a calculated political move designed to capitalize on the media spotlight on irresponsible Senate spending. One could argue Trudeau’s move made sense. But, suddenly declaring all party candidates must adhere to the prochoice line when the abortion debate wasn’t even in the public mind? It’s a head-scratcher for sure. Perhaps there is a method to Trudeau’s madness but, at this point, it appears his edict is only bolstering the campaigns of pro-life groups from coast to coast. Do not be surprised to see these organizations use Trudeau’s declaration in an attempt to force the abortion issue back into the spotlight during the election campaign.

Re: Story: May long weekend brings Imagine No Religion 4 to Kamloops:

“When men took over religion, they killed more women and children than our all wars combined — in the name of their holy.� — posted by Tradesman “I don’t care what anyone believes, but atheism is beginning to turn into a religion. “Only a matter of time before they apply for tax-exempt status.� — posted by Tyler

Re: Story: First Nations bands against city’s annexation bid:

“So, the native bands are against it as they aren’t getting any money. Shocker.� — posted by Mike “The bands would like some revenuesharing, which is fair enough, but then they should share some of the tax revenue they get from the Sun Rivers development. “Those people use public schools, the regional health-care system, the Tournament Capital Centre, regionaldistrict facilities like the library, etc., but none of the tax money they pay to the band is turned over to pay for these amenities.� — posted by Glenn

For the sake of B.C., leave ALR as it is

having kids read the book Editor: Re: (‘City parent mulls lawsuit over book,’ May 13): The Perks of Being a Wallflower should not be allowed in school libraries if the content is as described by parent Dean Audet. It amazes me how material of this type is considered to provide any benefit to students in grades 9 to 12. Surely the librarians can find material that actually encourages a healthier lifestyle, rather than material that promotes sex, drugs, crime, horror, cruelty and violence. I’m sure children can fill their appetite for this in areas other than a public school. Would a book promoting a clean lifestyle with high moral values be allowed in the school library? I think not. I wish Audet all the best in his effort to have this book removed and applaud him for wanting to protect his child from pornography.

How does a one-month office cost $45,000? Editor: How does City of Kamloops finance director Sally Edwards justify spending $45,000 of taxpayer money on a one- month tax office in the McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre? I tried calling her to ask, but was met with rudeness and a flat-out refusal to answer any questions. Only in the public sector could a one-month office spiral out of control into a $45,000 expense. Despite what Mayor Peter Milobar says, a change in direction might be in order at city hall in the Nov. 15 civic election. The mayor and senior city managers are totally out of control at the detriment of the hard working taxpayers. Incredible. Scott Sealey Kamloops

Editor: An open letter to Health Minister and KamloopsNorth Thompson MLA Terry Lake: I am a farmer. I haven’t always been a farmer. In fact, I’ve done many things — some important, some not-so-important — but, without question, the most important thing I’ve done in my life is to be involved with food. And not just any food, but the food we produce right here in our province. What makes it special is that someone many years ago decided it might be a good idea to reserve some land so we might have local food today. I believe we were on the right track, but the trouble is we are now faced with a situation that could very well see us lose the very land we thought would feed us for generations to come. This concerns me. If we lose this land, how do we feed our people of tomorrow? I know you and your ministerial friends are concerned the people of B.C. aren’t living the economic dream. Maybe if more land was available to exploit resources or be available for development, it might make their lives a little bit better, but land lost is opportunity lost. Our future lies in the capacity of our Agricultural Land Reserve to feed this province. Splitting it up only compromises the original intent of the ALR, which was to establish a land trust for future generations of farmers. Your support of Bill 24 indicates to me you have no interest in how we feed ourselves, our children or their children. We have very little arable land in B.C. (four per cent of the province a last count). Perhaps we should make it count as some of the best agricultural product in this nation comes from our province. Why would we sabotage that? I ask you as a person who obviously holds the health and well-being of the citizens of our province dear to his heart to consider what a detrimental effect changing the spirit of the ALR will have on all of us. I would like to know you, as our health minister, recognizes health begins with the land. Please don’t give it away. Dieter Dudy (Thistle Farm) Kamloops

New parking-meter system nothing more than a tax grab Editor: I would like to talk about our city council and its tax grab. First, the parking meters it had installed in downtown Kamloops. Not long ago, you would pull up to parking meters with time remaining, paid for by our fellow citizens. Or, we would leave paid time on them that our fellow citizens could use.

Today, all time paid on meters cannot be used by our fellow citizens. It goes directly to city hall coffers. Council tells us we can move to other locations where these parking meters are located without repaying again until the original time runs out. Of course, council does not tell us the clock is still running while we are busy relocating our vehicles.

In addition, the parking rates were increases, hiking the total cost to each resident or tourist who wants to shop downtown. Mayor Peter Milobar stated, said this [tax grab] could not be used for anything but parking issues. Sort of like buying the old newspaper property for parking. Remember, this is a tax grab.

Don’t wait ‘til it’s too late Get it done early

Have an appetite to help out? By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

CHRISTOPHER SEGUIN: Rotary past-president lauds dinner program’s success.

Success in the kitchen means the Rotary Club of Kamloops needs help. In its first year of operation, the community dinners the club has been offering, in partnership with the Kamloops-Thompson school district and Kamloops Food Bank, have gained in popularity to the point someone

is needed to help coordinate all the volunteers. Club past-president Christopher Seguin said the dinners, part of a hungry-child initiative, see between 120 and 150 people attending. He said so many people and organizations want to be part of the program that someone needs to take on that organizational task. All other Rotary clubs in the city have

signed on, Seguin said, and some groups — he noted Target as an example — are always helping out. “If a group signs up once, it always wants to come back,” he said, Seguin said the meals, cooked and served at NorKam secondary’s cafeteria twice per month, cost $2 per person. The food bank provides the fixings for the meals.

“But, what I’ve learned from this is it’s not about the food,” Seguin said. “It’s about the love and community. “It’s about a safe and confidential place where the single moms can chat and the kids can play, where families come because it’s fun. “I’ve seen kids grow a foot taller in the past year there.” The next dinner is on May 27.

After that, the meals will happen once a month through the summer before ramping back up in the fall. Anyone wanting to take part — and, ideally, take on the volunteers co-ordinator job — can reach Seguin by email at kamloopshunger@hotmail.com.

Red Beard Roasters is expanding its options to give guests more to drink in while having a conversation By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s not a bar or a restaurant, but once its renovation is complete, it won’t be quite accurate to call Red Beard Roasters on Kamloops’ North Shore a coffee shop. The cafe will still have its roasted-onsite java, but it is opening up its options for drinkers who want a different buzz with their beverage. Co-owner Mitchell Forgie said the cafe is partnering with Sorrento brewery Crannog Ales and will offer 10 taps of local and international craft beer, as well as unusual sodas. “I personally love coffee,� says Forgie, who previously ran the city’s Better Beer Club out of the Brownstone Restaurant. “I usually have two cups a day and I’ve had them by 10 a.m. “If I’m having a

meeting in the afternoon around 2 p.m., I just don’t want to have another coffee. “When I go out I want to have some other options.� Forgie said the goal is to have rotating beer offerings, as well as special cask ales produced exclusively for Red Beard. As part of the switch, which will see the cafe acquire a food-primary liquor licence, Red Beard is expanding its kitchen and menu offerings. “It’s going to have some cool new sandwiches and we really want to do hot dogs as a cool thing, so we’ll do fancy gourmet hot dogs,� Forgie said. Also on the to-do list are a pergola to add shade on the patio and a massive expansion of the shop’s bicycle parking, which Forgie said is an effort to tie in to some of the city’s work to improve the walkability of

Tranquille Market. “We thought the best way to get people to bike is if they have a place to park it,� he said. “We’re on the North Shore, it’s flat, people might actually bike, so we’re going to try to get about 50 bike parking stalls outside so you can really find a place if you come.� Though it has much in common with a pub, Forgie said Red Beard is aiming for a different feel, one that is more family-friendly and loses some of the typical trappings of the local watering hole. “When you’re looking at just pubs,

there’s generally a lot of TV screens,� Forgie said. “Personally, for me, I don’t watch a lot of sports. I know a lot of people do, but I think it’s time there was a place you can go where there aren’t TV screens and you can have a conversation.� While Red Beard’s configuration of coffee and alcohol isn’t common in Kamloops, it’s gaining traction in other communities. Forgie points to Victoria establishments Discovery Coffee and Cafe Fantastico as two independent examples of the model, but big chains are also embracing the combination. In the United States,

Petcetera set to close Kamloops store Aberdeeen location will shut its doors on June 30 Petcetera’s Kamloops store will close on June 30. Also closing at the end of June are the Petcetera outlets in Regina and Ottawa. In total, nine stores in Canada will be closed and nine more will be sold as the company continues to restructure after announcing in March that it plans to file for creditor protection. Petcetera previously announced the closure of stores in Abbotsford, Penticton, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Niagara Falls and Dartmouth. The company said the Kamloops, Regina and Ottawa stores employ about 50 people collectively. “As we developed our restructuring plan, it became evident the only viable options available to us were to either close

or sell the stores.” said Dan Urbani, president and CEO of Petcetera. “We have now rationalized the prospects of every store and have concluded that our stores in Kamloops, Regina, and Ottawa cannot be sold and will be closed by the end of June. “Closing stores is a very difficult decision but, unfortunately, this was the only remaining option for these stores. “While we have been forced to close nine stores, we are pleased

that nine stores have been sold and will continue operating as pet stores.” In 2009, Petcetera downsized from 50 stores to 18 stores. At that time, the Kamloops store was slated for closure. With a struggling economy and an aggressive expansion program, the original Petcetera found itself carrying too much debt and was forced to go through a restructuring. When the restructur-

TUESDAY

ing failed, the company, which owned 45 stores across Canada, went into bankruptcy protection in June of 2009. That led to a summerlong going-out-of-business sale carried out by a U.S. retail-liquidation company. It was during this time that Urbani, the sole owner of Canadian Petcetera Limited Partnership — the old Petcetera — stepped in. Once the liquidation was complete, the for-

mer owner put together a successful offer to buy the 20 most profitable stores, which included the Hillside Drive location in Kamloops, along with the head office. The company currently employs more than 300 employees in its British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia locations. The closure of the Kamloops store will be preceded by an immediate liquidation of all inventory, fixtures and equipment. All inventory will be liquidated at discounts ranging from 25 per cent to 90 per cent.

Two die as vehicle enters lake

CANADIAN PRESS

PRINCE GEORGE — Prince George RCMP are confirming the bodies of two people have been recovered from a vehicle pulled from a rural lake. Police say officers co-ordinated the removal from Kwitzil Lake and found

a male and female both dead in the vehicle. Officers say the investigation began on the morning of Sunday, May 18, when they received reports of a vehicle going into the lake — more commonly known as Gravel Pit Lake — west of Prince George.

Police, firefighters and paramedics were at the scene. Officers say hundreds of people were attending a party in the area throughout the night. The B.C. Coroners Service is investigating. No names have yet been released,

Trudeau cites dad’s influence CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is offering a “personal reflection’’ on his position regarding Liberal election candidates and abortion. In an email to supporters, Trudeau said he understands and empathizes with anyone who has concerns about his decision to turn away new candidates who are unwilling to vote pro-choice on relevant Liberal legislation. He said his father, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, was a staunch Catholic who went to church every Sunday and read his children the Bible. But, Trudeau said, his father also recognized political leaders must represent the larger community and had no problem legalizing divorce and decriminalizing homosexuality. Toronto’s Roman Catholic archbishop, Cardinal Thomas Collins, has written to Trudeau, urging him to allow candidates to be faithful to their conscience. Trudeau said while he welcomes input from the prelate, his party is committed to the values laid out in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Charles and Camilla begin Canadian visit By Melanie Patten and Aly Thomson CANADIAN PRESS

HALIFAX — Prince Charles reflected on Canada’s contribution to the Second World War as he and his wife Camilla were greeted by hundreds of people on Monday, May 19, in Halifax on the first full day of a short visit to Canada that will see them travel to three provinces. People were bundled up against chilly weather and a light mist hung over Grand Parade, a square in front of city hall, as the Prince of Wales was officially welcomed to Canada by Governor General David Johnston, politicians and an aboriginal elder. A 21-gun royal salute echoed through the city’s downtown as the prince inspected an honour guard. The grey weather was used by Charles to get a laugh from those lining the square to hear him make his first speech on the four-day tour. “It is, as always, a special joy to be back in Canada again, a place that is very dear to us both,’’ he said. “This time to be in Canada’s historic ocean gateway to the Atlantic at the official start of summer.’’ The royal couple also laid a wreath at the cenotaph and mingled with people during a walkabout around the square. Charles commented on Canada’s contribution of so many soldiers, sailors and airmen to the liberation of Europe as the 75th anniversary of

the start of the Second World War approaches. “An extraordinary contribution from a country with a population much less than it is now,’’ he said. The Duchess of Cornwall’s outfit included Nova Scotia’s blue and green tartan. The visit to Canada will see the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visit Pictou,

N.S., Charlottetown and Winnipeg. It is the couple’s second Canadian tour since 2012, but it’s the first time Camilla has visited the three provinces. Charles was last in Manitoba 18 years ago and he visited the two Maritime provinces in 1983. The prince said he has fond memories of an unplanned visit to

NATIONAL NEWS

First Nations, cities call for government to focus on Highway of Tears By James Keller

CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — Sally Gibson has been waiting nearly two decades for answers about what became of her niece, a 19-year-old forestry student from a small First Nation in northern British Columbia who vanished along the Highway of Tears. There’s the official story: Lana Derrick was out with some friends and, at some point, ended up in a car with two unidentified men, with whom she was last seen at a gas station along Highway 16 near Terrace in the early morning of Oct. 7, 1995. But, that’s just one of the many theories, rumours and guesses Gibson and her relatives have heard over the years, a painful reminder that no one — not the family, not the police — has any idea about what happened. “We have heard so many different stories and have been told so many different things that we don’t even know,’’ said Gibson from her home in Gitanyow, the First Nations reserve where Derrick grew up. “It isn’t like Lana died and we went and buried her and the pain will go away. She totally disappeared. That’s an open wound.” Derrick’s disappearance brought her family into a community of loss and despair, joining the relatives of at least 18 women and girls who disappeared

or were murdered along Highway 16 and two adjacent highways. There are the yearly walks and the memorial ceremonies — and the shared frustration that the provincial government has yet to act on dozens of recommendations to protect vulnerable women in B.C.’s north. First Nations groups and municipal officials

say the province should have acted years ago using a blueprint it already has — a 2006 report with 33 recommendations to improve transportation, discourage hitchhiking and prevent violence against aboriginal women and girls. That report was endorsed by a public inquiry report released in December 2012, which called for urgent action. The 2006 report was crafted by several First Nations groups after the Highway of Tears Symposium. Its first recommendation was a shuttle-bus network along more than 700 kilometres of Highway 16 that runs from Prince Rupert to Prince George. Other recommendations included education for aboriginal

youth, improved health and social services in remote communities, counselling and mentalhealth teams made up of aboriginal workers, more comprehensive victims’ services and, of course, money to pay for it all. Wendy Kellas, who works on the Highway of Tears issue for Carrier Sekani Family Services, wants provin-

cial funding to examine whether any of the recommendations need to be updated. For example, the report called for more phone booths along the highway, while the focus now would be on mobile phone coverage, she said. Still, she said, most of the 2006 recommendations remain relevant, including the need for better services not only for aboriginal women, but also for the families of the murdered and missing. The proposed shuttle service is needed as much as ever, she said. For First Nations women who can’t afford their own vehicle, there are still few options if they need to travel for groceries, appointments or to visit family. “I believe it is still necessary,’’ Kellas said.

L A N I G I R /DEALER

“It would have to be a system, very coordinated, to make sure people in the more rural communities are able to get into the urban centres for the basic necessities of life.’’ The 2006 symposium was revived by a public inquiry that examined both the Robert Pickton serial-killer case and the broader issue of murdered and missing women. Commissioner Wally Oppal called for immediate action to improve transportation along the Highway of Tears and said the government should implement the 2006 recommendations. But, there has been little effort to hold consultations and internal government briefing notes revealed work on the file was stalled for much of the past year. The province said it had to put its work on hold when families of women in the Pickton case launched lawsuits last year. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton and Transportation Minister Todd Stone have declined repeated requests for interviews. Anton insists the highway is safe, pointing to transportation options including a health shuttle for medical patients and Greyhound bus service, which was dramatically cut last year. Smithers Mayor Taylor Bachrach said Anton appears to be suggesting nothing more needs to be done. “Some of her comments seem to be trying to justify the status quo

or suggest the status quo is adequate,’’ Bachrach said. “Transportation in the north is worse than I’ve ever seen it.’’ Nevertheless, Bachrach said he’s hopeful the province will actually start its

long-delayed Highway of Tears consultations soon. Ministry of Transportation staff planned to attend a meeting with the Omineca Beetle Action Coalition, of

which Bachrach is a member, last Friday, and Bachrach said he expected more such meetings to follow. “I am keen to give the government the benefit of the doubt,” Bachrach said.

Driving the game’s future Courses in the Tournament Capital get creative in hopes of attracting golf’s next generation By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER

adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Golf courses in the Tournament Capital agree there’s a need to grow the game, but how to best do it is still a matter for debate. Despite a growing reputation as a golf mecca in B.C.’s Interior, Kamloops’ 11 tracks still need to get creative to attract new players. It’s a problem across the nation and clubs everywhere are experimenting with a variety of solutions. “Golf, from a junior perspective over the last number of years, has been a bit of a challenge,” said Rivershore Golf Links general manager Kerry Ward. He said smaller families, along with a plethora of sports options in Kamloops — hockey, football, soccer, lacrosse, mountain biking, skiing, tennis — have contributed to the game’s struggles. “We’re optimistic that, over the next few years, we’re going to continue to grow our junior program,” Ward said. “We’ve certainly seen some very positive growth, even from last year to this year, in the number of kids that are attending our junior nights.” Rivershore isn’t the only course facing challenges with juniors. Brett Martin, a pro at Eaglepoint Golf Resort and former manager of the now-defunct Aberdeen Hills Golf Links, said he’s concerned by the trends he has seen since his old course’s closure. “To be honest, when I was managing Aberdeen Hills — when we had 155 juniors — as soon as they shut their doors down, we’ve heard and seen at other golf courses that a number juniors kind of just gave up the game,” Martin said. A few of those players relocated to different clubs but, in speaking with other courses, Martin found most of them are unaccounted for.

The problem isn’t just with juniors — it’s with attracting new players, regardless of age. In Kamloops, juniors are obviously an important group, but golf courses are targeting all ages. Rivershore focuses on low green fees and membership rates for juniors. Young members have near-full playing privileges — with weekend mornings the only time they’re unable to tee off. Sun Rivers Golf Resort has programs for every level and describes its approach as a grassroots effort. With programs like Timbits Free Golf Day, as well as the travelling Birdie Ball inflatable that makes the rounds at events like Ribfest, Sun Rivers has the kids covered. The resort also has Family Golf and Learn to Love Golf programs for older golfers and it uses programs like Margaritaville and Rock N’ Range for younger adults. “Everything is very layered, from beginning all the way through, taking you all the way through those steps,” said

Rob Larocque, general manager of Sun Rivers Golf Resort and president of Golf Kamloops. “If you’ve never played, there’s a program for you. If you play a little bit, there’s a program for you. If you play a little bit and you’re more on the social side of it, there’s a program for you. If you’re a serious golfer and you want to play lots of golf, there’s programming for you.” At Eaglepoint, juniors play for free after 5 p.m. with a parent. The resort is also involved with high school golf teams in the Tournament Capital. It has also considered an approach that has garnered a lot of publicity of late — widening its cups. Redwoods Golf Course in Langley has sparked the wider-holes conversation in Canada recently, with the establishment of a program called Eight-Inch Tuesdays. Once a week, the course doubles the cup size in an effort to make the game more accessible and easier for new players.

Martin said a similar move at the Barnhartvale course would attract golfers who think the game is too difficult. Scores would go down, rounds would take less time and, hopefully, people would develop a love for the game. “You know what, I thought, this can’t be. Eight inches as a cup, that’s double the size,” Martin told KTW, recalling when he first heard of the Redwoods’ plan. “And then, all of a sudden, you look into it and it’s like, ‘Wow, that’s actually a pretty good idea.’” Martin said Eaglepoint has approached its members about the possibility of using eight-inch holes and he believes there’s an appetite to give it a try. Both Rivershore and the Sun Peaks Golf Course don’t see themselves entertaining the idea of wider holes any time soon. Sun Rivers didn’t dismiss the idea, but doesn’t seem to have any plans for wider holes on the horizon. XSee KEY A22

Campmans jumps into B.C. Summer Games By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER

adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Matthew Campmans has done a lot of winning this season. The 14-year-old track and field athlete has found the podium in nearly every meet he has been to in the young track and field season — the 2014 North and West Zone Championship, the 2014 Battle of the Border Invitational, the 2014 Van Ryswyck Indoor Invitational — hurdling and high jumping himself to personal bests en route. “It’s pretty satisfying to find out that I’m just getting better and better at it,” Campmans said. He’ll undoubtedly be satisfied with his results from the weekend. The Westsyde student took the first step towards achieving his goal of winning the 2014 B.C. Summer Games, qualifying to compete for B.C. in both high jump and hurdles. Perhaps the most interesting part of Campmans’ story is he wasn’t always at the top of the class in track. Oleg Bondarchuk, head coach at the Kamloops Track and Field Club (KTFC), said it wasn’t until recently that his charge started putting his nose to the grindstone and really applying himself in practices. He even quit soccer to focus exclusively on track and field. Ever since, Campmans has turned a corner. He cleared 1.68 metres in the high jump, representing Westsyde at the Okanagan Valley Sport Athletic Association Track and Field Valley meet on Tuesday, May 13.

The height was a new personal best that topped his previous of 1.60m. He also ran the hurdles in 15.09 seconds, another personal best. “Well, he’s a really talented kid, from the beginning,” Bondarchuk said. “Anything he takes into his hands, it just goes very well. “He’s working really hard — he’s coming every day to practices and he has, every day, over two-hour practices. He went to a few competitions already, he got first places all the time, in his events. Almost each competition he’s growing in his results.” The 2014 Centennial Track and Field Meet was just the most recent event to take over Hillside Stadium. The KTFC will host the Provincial Championships Jamboree in July and the North American, Central American and Caribbean Under23 Championships in August. With the Centennial meet over, Campmans will turn his focus to Nanaimo’s B.C. Summer Games (July 17 to July 20). Bondarchuk is confident his student can bring gold home to the Tournament Capital. Campmans is also confident, but said he tries to keep his “head in the game” in advance of each performance. Before he jumps, or before the start gun goes off, all he’s thinking about is how he can improve — how to better arch over the bar or improve his speed between hurdles. That kind of focus has led him to where he is now and will, hopefully, take him to the next level. “His goal for this year is to win the B.C. Summer Games,” Bondarchuk said. “So, he’s all going for it.”

Key for courses is getting golf into the news XFrom A21

At Sun Peaks, the focus is on promoting the entire resort package, of which golf is just one aspect. Aidan Kelly, director of sales and marketing for Sun Peaks Resort Corporation, said the province’s highest-altitude course is a “unique experience” that attracts golfers. He’s not sold on wider holes

but, like most golf-course managers in Kamloops, he’ll consider anything that works. “I think anything that gets golf in the news is good,” Kelly said. “I think that golf has always been a very traditional and a very purist sport and it’s not been as adaptable, perhaps, as other sectors. I think now the industry is

starting to figure out we have to look at ways of adapting. “Is that the answer?” he continued. “I wouldn’t say that it is. “But, I say that part of the answer is looking at things like that and experimenting with different ways that we can push golf to the forefront and get people more interested in it.”

T WAS 7:15 A.M. ON Friday, May 9. Everyone was gathered in drummer Jay Christman’s house, leaning on the kitchen counters, staring at the phone. They’d been doing that for a while, said Lauren Mann, singer and founder of Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk, having risen just after 6 a.m. — “really early for us” — after being advised by someone from the CBC they were one of four bands that had made it through to the finals of the network’s annual Searchlight contest. One of the four would

receive a phone call at that moment, they’d been told. On the radio, they heard CBC host Jian Ghomeshi start to announce the names of the four finalists when the phone rang. “We were listening to the radio on a stream,” Mann said, “so there was a bit of a delay and he hadn’t even gotten through the first name when the phone rang.” The band was Searchlight’s best new artist, capturing not only that title, but $20,000 in equipment, a recording session with the CBC and a spot on its musical festival in Vancouver on Saturday, June 14, an event that features Tegan and Sara, The Arkells, Hannah Georgas, Wake Owl, Spoon,

Chad Vangaalen and Dan Mangan, among others. “It was a really crazy moment,” said Zoltan Szoges, whose made the musical trek with Mann the past four years. “It meant something different for each of them [in the band] but, for me and Lauren, it made the last four years worth it. “It was a lot of work and sacrifice and, for us to hear Jian Ghomeshi say our name and for him to recognize us for our music, it was pretty crazy.” The band is now on a tour through B.C., with a show at The Dirty Jersey, 1200 Eighth St., on Thursday, May 29. The name comes from

when Mann was a solo artist who would jam with friends at her gigs in Alberta. Eventually, the act became a duo after she met husband Szoges, and, by 2011, the makings of a backup band was in place. Now, the two of them have hit the road with Jay Christman on drums and guitar, Jessica Christman on bass, keyboard and background vocals, Josh Akin on electric and acoustic guitar and Szoges on keyboard, percussion and glockenspiel. Hammer Clark handles their technical needs. The Ghomeshi phone call wasn’t the only highlight in recent days. Also on May 9, the band landed gigs in two Canadian

festivals, including one in Thunder Bay that regularly draws up to 4,000 people. The CBC hired them for the pancake breakfast it hosts during the annual Calgary Stampede and they signed a deal with a radio station in Chile to let it use one of their songs in a commercial it’s making to air on Chilean television. The band has never been to the South American country. “It was one of those emails where you look at it and, you know, ‘I’m a Saudi Arabian prince and I want to give you my money,’ so I was hesitant to do anything,” Szoges said. “But, I did a follow-up and we talked and they offered us more money

for the licence than we had been asking. “So, we’ve got a signed contract and they’re talking about maybe flying us down to San Francisco to be part of the commercial they’re shooting there.” This tour is about a month long, Mann said, and reflects a different approach. In the past, she would try to pack a tour full, with dips into the U.S., but now, the band will be focusing on Canada and not spreading itself so thin. There’s a reason for that; they plan to start recording a new release next spring. For more information, go online to laurenmannmusic. com.

“Love the Gums You’re With!”

Author Malcolm Gladwell says teeth are fast becoming the new benchmark of inequality. The noted journalist and societal commentator says that “those with bad or missing teeth are given a lower chance of success Dr. Preety Desai because they are ‘denied’ certain entry level jobs”. He was quoted by the Times of London, “that’s kind of the way we’re moving as the gap between the fit and the unfit grows. Studies have shown that those with healthy gums and teeth rise the corporate ladder faster and are more successful.” Even popular TV series host, Chris Harrison of the “The Bachelor and “the Bachelorette” fame has vocalized that first impressions are crucial for relationship success - and isn’t that what life is all about? Relationships with spouses, family, colleagues, neighbors and strangers! You know when gums have become sexy - when reality TV talks about them on air! The TV host has actually partnered with the American Academy of Periodontology campaign: “Love the Gums You’re With”, bringing awareness to the crucial role of gum health and its association with the rest of your health. Harrison is quoted, “it’s something that nobody talks about and the fact that one in two adults over the age of 30 are affected by gum disease is staggering. I’m trying to shine a little light on that. You can go to perio.org and learn a lot more about it, but it’s really just the simple things like brushing twice a day and flossing, going to see a dentist twice a year and if you need, a periodontist. It’s a pretty serious issue that you will realize, the baby steps of bad breath, gum irritation, and bleeding, but it can go to much more serious topics like diabetes and heart disease. It’s preventive and you can even reverse the effects of this, so it’s important to get on it.” A poll conducted last year by UK’s VisionCritical also found that people see whiter teeth as an indication of wealth. The survey showed that people with whiter teeth were thought to earn $16,000 more on average than they actually did. Sparkling teeth also made them look up to five years younger and improved their employment potential by 10 per cent, results showed. Hand in hand with bad teeth and gums is the other offensive fact of “bad breath”. We all know someone with bad breath, but we don’t know if we’ve got it. It’s the bad breath paradox. Bad breath is particularly common amongst those who talk a lot (politicians, judges, teachers, doctors) because their mouths dry out. They are in positions of authority, so no one dares tell them they’ve got it. Men are more likely to have it than women and it is a genuine problem. The main cause of bad breath is of course ... gum disease. Imagine - now that gums have made it to main stream media - my specialty of periodontics is finally sexy! Just call us periodontists Dr Glamour Gums! (member of the American Academy of Periodontology since 1993).

It’s mini, but it’s mighty By Jim Robinson

METROLAND MEDIA Wheels.ca

W

HEN Nissan said in February that its 2015 Micra subcompact would have a starting price of $9,998, the first reaction by many was — what’s the catch? Would this be a phantom car that exists on paper to lure buyers in the showroom, only to be told, “They are all sold, but how about a nicely equipped up-trim model?” Well, folks, there is no catch. The base Micra S will come with cloth seats, manual transmission, wind-up windows, manual-adjust outside mirrors and no air conditioning. But, it will also have six airbags, ABS, traction control, electronicstability control, tilt

steering wheel, AM/ FM/CD player with auxiliary audio-input jack and speed/volume control. The 2015 Micra is built in Mexico and will not be offered in the U.S. It is also engineered for Canada. For instance, it is sold in 160 countries, but the Canadian version is the only Micra in the world with rear seat floor-heater ducts, which took quite a bit of engineering to accomplish. A full hockey bag will fit sideways in the trunk and, with the rear 60/40-seat folded, it’s long enough to stow hockey sticks. The suspension is beefed up all round with a rear stabilizer bar to better match our road conditions, especially in Quebec, where Nissan expects a bulk of sales. Nissan is also seri-

ous about getting people into the Micra, which they see as a far better solution to the budget buyer than going for a used car at the same money. Nissan’s financing plans make it possible for someone with no

previous finance or lease history to buy a Micra. That includes applicants regardless of credit-bureau rating, people new to Canada, graduate students. There is even a Nissan First Time

Buyer Program that cuts red tape in the approval process. Power goes to the front wheels through the standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission. With the rear seat

folded, cargo volume is 819.5 litres. My co-driver’s first remark when she found the interior unfestooned with LCD screens, heads-up displays and touchscreen readouts replaced by a simple, easy-to-use set

of analog gauges and controls was: “I don’t need any more than this.” Nissan guesstimates 10 per cent of the 10,000 Micras it expects to sell in the first year will be the base model.

She is now reunited with her loving husband, Giuseppe, who passed away on May 15, 1995. She is also reunited with her parents, Antonio and Lucia Abiusi.

ETHEL EVA EVANS

Caterina is survived by her beloved children, Maria (David) Salituro, Saverina (John) Silano, Andy (Linda) Masi, Antonella Capone (Rick Short) Franca (Larry) Stankoven, Lucia (Aaron) Larsen, and Rina (Brent) Cook. To carry on her legacy and traditions she leaves 19 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Ethel Eva Evans of Darfield, BC passed away May 11, 2014 at 93 years of age. She is survived by her son Greg (Lorine) of Chase, BC. She is also survived by four grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, two sisters and numerous other relatives. Ethel was predeceased by her husband Percy, her daughter Laura, and her grandson Garrett.

She also leaves to cherish her memory, her sister Anna Guzzi of Winnipeg, and her brother and sister, both of Italy, Rosina Abiusi and Bruno Abiusi.

1920 ~ 2014

Ethel was born on November 20, 1920 in Steelhead, Mission. After time in Mission she moved to New Westminster then Burnaby then Prince George before the final move to the farm in Darfield in 1958. She enjoyed playing baseball in her early days and later enjoyed lawn bowling. She also enjoyed sewing, soapstone-carving, and painting. She was independent and continued to drive to Barriere for groceries on a weekly basis until one year ago. The family would like to thank the caregivers and staff at the Ridgeview Lodge. A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 1:30 pm in the Barriere Seniors Centre. Memorial donations in memory of Ethel may be made to Alzheimer Society of B.C. 300 – 828 West 8th Ave. Vancouver, B.C. V5Z 1E2. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Caterina immigrated to Canada in 1967. It was here in Kamloops that she and her husband made a better life for their seven children. The Masi family home at 1002 Moncton Avenue is where many memories were made. Sunday spaghetti dinners were a family tradition. Her happiest times were when family gathered in her home. Caterina loved the first signs of spring, knowing it wouldn’t be long before she could be out working in the garden every morning. Her hard working hands never rested in the kitchen, the cellar was always filled with canning. We will miss her homemade bread, all her Italian baking, but most of all the love she had for each of us. The family would like to thank Dr. Sigalet for his gentle and compassionate care and the kind staff at Overlander Extended Care who treated Mom like their own mother over the past four months. Thank you to the staff at Royal Inland Hospital for their care. We would also like to extend our deepest gratitude for the care Mom received at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home during her time there. Prayers will be recited on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 7:00 pm in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. Father Peter Nguyen will celebrate the Mass of Christian Burial at the Church on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 11:00 am. Entombment will follow at Sage Valley Mausoleum. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Kamloops Hospice Association, 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, B.C. V2E 259 in memory of Caterina Masi.

SHARON PHYLLIS WYSE (née Garrioch) Sharon passed away peacefully on Friday, May 16, 2014 at 60 years of age. She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Jim Wyse of Kamloops, daughter Kimberly Wyse of Vernon plus two grandchildren, Adalynn and Jack McMurray. Sharon is also survived by her six brothers & sisters: Ivan (Jill) Garrioch of Kamloops, Wayne (Cory) Garrioch of Edmonton, Doug Garrioch of Calgary, Murray (Sue) Garrioch of Kelowna, Sandra (Jerry) Labrie of Kamloops and Sonny Noer. She also leaves to mourn her passing many relatives, in-laws and friends too numerous to mention. She was predeceased by her mother, Irene Isabel Fitzsimmons in 1995 and her father, Robert James Garrioch in 2000. Sharon was born July 2, 1953 in Gladstone, MB and the family moved to BC in 1956. She graduated from Kamloops Secondary School in 1970 and started work as a server at Scott’s Restaurant. She worked at several restaurants around the city before finally settling at the Coast Canadian Inn where she worked for over 33 years until she retired in September, 2012. Sharon met Jim Wyse, the love of her life, in 1974 and they were married on April 10, 1976. Sharon was thrilled at the arrival of their daughter Kimberly on September 17, 1985 and doubly ecstatic with the arrival of their two grandchildren, Adalynn in 2009 and Jack in 2011. Sharon & Jim bought recreational property at Mile High in 1982 where they enjoyed both the solitude as well as entertaining friends and family. Sharon loved the outdoors, especially snowshoeing and cross country skiing. She was also an avid exercise and fitness junkie, excellent hostess and an avid BC Lions football fan. Sharon belonged to the Canadian Daughters for 8 years and to the Paddlewheelers Lions Club for the past 12 years, serving as President in 2011/12 and 2012/13. We miss Sharon but she is finally at peace and we will remember her always. Her life was cut short by cancer but she fought hard. The family would like to express their gratitude & appreciation to all the caregivers at the Kamloops Hospice and the Royal Inland Hospital for their concern and support while Sharon was in their care. Sharon had an enthusiasm for life, a generous spirit and a great love for her family and friends. A celebration of her life followed by a reception & tea will be held on Saturday, May 31 from 10 am to noon at the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Dr. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Sharon’s memory to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice or the RIH Foundation.

Generalized anxiety disorder

F

OR MANY PEOPLE, worry is just a part of their nature and their everyday life. You probably know people like this, or you may be a person like this. Chances are you know several worriers because generalized anxiety affects 19 per cent of the adult population at any one time. You heard that right — about one in five people has an anxiety disorder.

What is the difference between general anxiety disorder (GAD) and a normal anxious experience? Like most mental disorders, length of time one experiences the symptoms is one of the key elements. It is normal to be nervous before you make a speech or run a race, but when your

anxiety has no specific cause or issue and you have been anxious for six months or more, you likely have an anxiety disorder. Shyness is anxiety at a very low level — fear of all social interactions is an anxiety disorder. For most people with GAD, it has become the “normal” feeling in their life. If they have a brief respite from worry they start to worry they are forgetting or overlooking something. It can affect relationships, employment and many other aspects of life. Here is how one person wrote about having anxiety disorder: “I always thought I was just a worrier. I’d feel keyed up and unable to relax. “At times it would come and go, and at times it would be constant. “It could go on for days. I’d worry about very small things and I just couldn’t let something go. “I’d have terrible sleeping problems. There were times I’d

wake up wired in the middle of the night. “I had trouble concentrating, even reading the newspaper or a novel. Sometimes I’d feel a little lightheaded. “My heart would race or pound. And that would make me worry more. “When my problems were at their worst, I’d miss work and feel just terrible about it. Then I worried that I’d lose my job. “My life was miserable until I got treatment.” People with GAD go through the day filled with exaggerated worry and tension, even though there is little or nothing provoking it. They anticipate disaster and are overly concerned about health issues, money, family problems, or difficulties at work. Sometimes, just the thought of getting through the day produces anxiety. People with GAD can’t relax, startle easily and have difficulty concentrating. Often, they have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. Physical symptoms that often accompany the anxiety include fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, muscle aches, irritability, sweating, nausea,

light-headedness, having to go to the bathroom frequently and feeling out of breath. Social anxiety can strike at any age in life, and is often combined with other issues. Many people with an anxiety disorder try to ease the symptoms by self-medicating with alcohol or drugs, and this can actually make their situation much, much worse. The good news is there are a variety of treatments for GAD that have proven effective, from medication to cognitive behavioural therapy. We still have a great deal to learn about social anxieties, but we should all start with a little understanding. If you or someone you care about suffers under a load of unreasonable stress, encourage that person to talk to a physician about it. Relief may be closer than one thinks. This topic, like many of the subjects we write about, came from the suggestion of one of our readers. If you have a question, comment or observation you would like to see in our column, let us know by email at kamloops@ cmha.bc.ca or follow us on Twitter @CMHAKamloops.
