Snow motion frozen ANDREA KLASSEN

STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops councillor’s proposal to give city staff deadlines for clearing bus shelters, trails and certain sidewalks has been frozen in its tracks. Donovan Cavers put forward a notice of motion this week, asking staff to set reasonable time limits for clearing pedestrian spaces for which the city is responsible. However, the motion didn’t make it to a vote as Cavers failed to find a fellow council member willing to second the idea in order to move ahead with a debate. Under current city policy, staff must clean bus stops of snow within 24 hours of a snowfall if the bus stops are on a sidewalk the city also plows. Otherwise, the city begins clearing the bus stops within 24 hours of a storm, with no set timeline for finishing the work.

Machete-wielding female robbers sought Kamloops Mounties are looking for a pair of machete-wielding females who pepper-sprayed employees at the Sahali 7-Eleven store before running off with cigarettes and cash. The robbery took place at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 6, at the store on Summit Drive. Two females walked into the store and demanded cigarettes and money. The two store employees were starting to comply when one of the robbers pepper-sprayed the two female store employees. The staff members received minor injuries from the pepper spray, but recovered.

The bandits then took a number of cigarettes and some cash and left with their machetes, which were not used in the heist. They are described as being First Nations and were wearing dark hoodies and gloves. A police-service dog was brought to the scene, but did not track down the suspects. Mounties believe there is a good possibility the robbers live in the area near the 7-Eleven store and may have said been trying to sell the stolen cigarettes. Anybody with information on the robbery is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (84677).

BOOM AND BUST: THE VARYING IMPACT OF OIL’S FALL AND THE DOLLAR’S DIVE

CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

he plunging loonie and tanking oil prices are pushing and pulling the city’s economy, with resource workers losing jobs balanced by cheaper gas and the prospect of a boost in tourism from the United States. The Bank of Canada’s quarter-point reduction to its key rate this week also promises to make life cheaper for those with floating-rate mortgages.

SLIDING ON OIL

Absorbent Products Ltd.’s Peter Aylen said firms like his that export to the United States are benefiting from the devalued Canadian dollar that continues to edge closer to 80 cents U.S. “Manufacturing is not all that large in this area,” he cautioned. The former Kamloops Chamber of Commerce president believes there will be more job loss to come from the oil shock in Alberta, with the price of crude oil dropping by half to less than $50 a barrel. “What we’re seeing in the oil patch is just the tip,” he said. Horizon North Logistics announced this week it will lay off 48 workers in Kamloops, among 130 company-wide. Kamloops Airport saw a two per cent decrease in travellers last month, something managing director Fred Legace attributes to fewer fly-in, fly-out workers commuting to Northern Alberta. The charter company that flies workers on a multi-stop commuter run from B.C. communities, including Kamloops, to Imperial Oil’s Kearl Lake oilsands recently switched from a Boeing 737 to a smaller Dash-8 aircraft to reflect fewer workers heading north. Unrelated to the

energy drop, the withdrawal of Target from Canada means of the loss of more than 100 retail jobs in Kamloops that analysts say provide a second income for many or half a family income for couples who both work in retail. Aylen said many workers are still on oil projects approved last fall. When those contracts run out, so will the work. “All resources are uncertain right now,” he said. “It’s hard to raise money for exploration projects. “Mining companies are not putting money out. Oil and mining companies are declining.” The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers forecasted capital spending by the industry will decrease by $23 billion this year, to $46 billion. “These are challenging times and Canadians across the country will see or feel the impacts,” association president Tim McMillan said in a statement.

MINING STABLE

While grassroots mineral exploration is in decline, current producers New Gold Inc. and Highland Valley Copper continue to employ about 1,500 workers between them. There are also a growing number of contractors and suppliers for that industry based in Kamloops. At KGHM Ajax, the current staff is about 50. Clyde Gillespie, manager of project development, said consultants working on the project’s application number in the hundreds. Copper prices traded in the $2.60 range this week, just slightly above the $2.50 the project feasibility is built on. But, gold is remains

above the $1,085 an ounce level used in the study and the devalued Canadian dollar also helps project economics. However, all these factors remain distant as the corporation readies its application, with production years in the future if it is approved. “We take a long-term view of copper prices and have projections in the future,” Gillespie said. “We’re not looking at today’s price, but what it will be in future.” Current conditions have little impact on its planning process, he said.

TOURISM INDUSTRY LOOKS AHEAD

The declining loonie, which plunged in response to the Bank of Canada’s interest-rate cut, juiced a campaign by Sun Peaks Resort to lure Washington state skiers to the Interior mountain. “We’re taking advantage of the dollar and the exchange rate and using that as part of the messaging,” Tourism Sun Peaks president Christopher Nicolson said. But, that impact will not be felt immediately beyond Washington state. “The dollar’s had a significant impact in the past,” he said. “Normally, there’s a bit of lag time.” The summer tourism market is also expected to benefit as the decline in the loonie becomes widely known in the western United States, which contributes to the rubber-tire market in B.C. for hotels and restaurants.

PAIN FOR PRODUCE, BUT NOT AT PUMP

For every up, there is a down: Produce from California will become more expensive with a weaker loonie. Sondra Van Kuyk, owner of Gourmet Greens Produce Market in Aberdeen, said her shop has already been

forced to pass on higher costs for broccoli and lettuce, for example. She attributes some of that to weather-related problems. The weaker Canadian dollar will make it more expensive to import that produce, which dominates B.C. grocery stores, while transportation costs have fallen along with oil.

LUMBER NO LONGER A BACKBONE

B.C. sawmills are running flat out to supply the resurgent U.S. housing market. Analyst Kevin Mason with ERA Forest Products Research said lumber, pulp “and any export-oriented company that isn’t oil and gas is looking pretty good.” There are concerns about devalued currencies from competitors making those products more competitive for pulp in particular. Domtar recently announced it is refurbishing part of its Kamloops pulp mill. But, the days of forestry driving the city’s economy are over. Kamloops retains one mill, Tolko Industries at Heffley Creek, with Aspen Planers in Savona on the periphery. The past 15 years have seen mills close in Kamloops, Vavenby, Louis Creek and Merritt. Even with current prices, the impact of mountain pine beetle has resulted in a small decline in Interior production, Mason added.

LNG STILL PROMISING HOPE

Rod Graham, CEO of Horizon North, said his firm has already acquired land in Kitimat and Prince Rupert to prepare for liquefied natural-gas project construction. Project approval would result in 300 to 400 jobs to build camps and other infrastructure. “We’d probably disproportionately place that in Kamloops,” he said. Graham also said he sees oil starting to recover in the latter half of this year. “I’ve been through four energy downturns and five upcycles,” he said. “I know it comes back. Each time is a little different.”

AM I ENTITLED TO JOB SECURITY? Generally speaking, non-union employees are not entitled to job security. This often comes as a surprise to many people. An employer can release an employee for many different reasons. For example, economic factors may change and an employer may need to downsize its operations. Essentially, as long as the reason for dismissal does not violate human rights, an employer can let an employee go for any reason. If the dismissal is without cause, meaning that it was due to no fault of the employee, an employer must provide the employee with either reasonable working notice of the dismissal or payment in lieu of notice. The period of notice will vary depending on several different factors, including the employee’s length of service, age, position, education, etc.

Grisly scene described MURDER TRIAL OF LYTTON MAN CONTINUES IN KAMLOOPS TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A retired RCMP sergeant who was one of the first investigators to visit the site of a violent Lytton murder in 2008 has described the grisly scene to jurors tasked with deciding the fate of Cory Bird. Bird, now 27, is charged with second-degree murder in connection to the death of Albert Michell. The jury has been told Michell was stabbed 73 times. Bird’s trial started on Monday, Jan. 19, with retired RCMP Sgt. Steve Gehl taking the stand as the first Crown witness. Gehl said he was tasked with taking photos of Michell’s body and a number of items inside his home after the body was discovered on Aug. 17, 2008. The Crown alleges Michell was killed on either Aug. 13 or Aug. 14. Gehl said hot and dry conditions in Lytton at the time led to an accelerated decomposition process in Michell’s case. “The fingers start to mummify,” he said. “They go very hard and very dark. “The body was bloated and it was in an advanced state of decomposition.” Gehl said Michell’s near-naked body had a bloodstained towel covering the genital region. He detailed for jurors extensive bloodstains

throughout the living and dining areas of Michell’s home, showing them 250 photos of the crime scene. The jury has been told Bird met Michell while hitchhiking and the two became fast friends, with Bird eventually staying at Michell’s home for a number of days. According to Crown prosecutor Frank Caputo, Bird, Michell and another friend purchased alcohol on Aug. 13, 2008, before returning to Michell’s home to watch a movie. The third friend left part-way through the movie, Caputo said, leaving Bird and Michell alone. The Crown believes Michell was killed sometime between 11 p.m. and 9 a.m. the following day. Caputo said Bird hitchhiked across the country after the murder, eventually being taken into custody following a brief standoff with police in Montreal, during which Bird admitted to officers he had killed a man in B.C., the jury was told. Caputo said Bird initially told police he was acting in self-defence, but later admitted that wasn’t true. This is Bird’s second murder trial. The outcome of a previous trial was appealed and he was ordered to stand trial again. The trial is expected to wrap up in midMarch.

Student debt must be paid CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

A former University College of the Cariboo student who declared bankruptcy cannot escape his student debt, a B.C. Supreme Court justice ruled. The decision by Justice Geoffrey Gaul overturns an earlier ruling by a B.C. Supreme Court master, who determined Douglas Mallory’s first round of student loans were discharged with his 2008 bankruptcy. The province appealed that decision. In the earlier decision that was overturned, the master determined Mallory ceased being a full-time student at University College of the Cariboo, the former name of Thompson Rivers University, in 2001, when he graduated with a bachelor of arts degree. That time span between 2001 and 2008 fulfils the requirement under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act that students must have been out of school for at least seven years in order to discharge student loan debt. But, Mallory graduated a second time, this time from University of Victoria, with a teaching degree. A month after graduating from that program, he

declared bankruptcy. Mallory’s Canada and B.C. loans while attending University College of the Cariboo totalled $38,000, while his debts from attending UVic added another $20,000. Mallory did not seek to escape paying the debts accrued in Victoria, only the UCC loans. Gaul ruled the seven-year requirement dates from the end of Mallory’s studies at UVic in 2008, rather than University College of the Cariboo in 2001. “I fail to see why a period of time between studies is of consequence,” Gaul said in his ruling. “The question is not how long a gap has there been or even if the period of studies has been successful. The question is, when did the bankrupt stop being a student?” The answer to that question, Gaul noted, is 2008, when Mallory graduated from UVic with a teaching degree. According to the judgment, Mallory worked at a number of jobs between stints in university, including driving a shuttle van and operating his own business. Following graduation with a teaching degree, he worked as a camp leader and substitute teacher two to three days a week.

He was discharged from bankruptcy in 2009. Jeannine Mitchell, who operates a website called Debt 101 on student finances and debt, said the law around hardship and bankruptcy for students is complex. Her most basic advice is to advise students to expect to pay back everything they borrow. “However, life does not always follow our plans,” Mitchell said in an email message to KTW. “Sometimes people face hardship in later years and really are eligible for bankruptcy that includes the remainder of their student loan debt.” In some cases, students may be relieved of student loan debt under a five-year rule. “Because of the failed attempts I’ve seen, I would caution them to avoid any bankruptcy trustees who lack a track record of successful student loan cases,” Mitchell said. While Mallory must repay the province’s portion of loans from time spent at UCC, he does not have to repay the federal portion of the $38,000 because the federal government did not join the province in appealing the master’s decision.

New homophobia policy to be discussed DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Gerald Watson expects his fellow trustees will be in favour of a new policy that could put to rest an ongoing concern raised about how the KamloopsThompson school district deals with homophobia. Watson, who chairs the school district’s policy committee, will introduce the new policy at the board meeting on Monday, Jan. 26. It is expected to be put to a vote on Monday, Feb. 2. In the summer of 2013, the issue about the existing policy came to a head after a South Kamloops secondary student completed a project on homophobic bullying. The student felt the existing policy was inadequate and made

a presentation to trustees, who referred it to Watson’s committee and asked for input from the KamloopsThompson Teachers’ Association (KTTA) and the district’s parentadvisory council. That review led the committee to decide the existing policy was adequate. “But, it had a lot of media play at the time,” Watson said, noting school-district Supt. Karl deBruijn wanted to address the issue. “And he did a review of other districts,” Watson said. “He wanted something more modern and I think this policy fits.” The existing policy, which Watson’s motion would delete, is titled “Race Relations” and does not include reference to homophobia. The proposed policy references the prov-

ince’s Human Rights Code and sets out several requirements for the district to address “racism, homophobia or any other form of discrimination.” It would commit the board to support: • Creating an environment in the school district that promotes non-discrimination consistent with the Human Rights Code; • Hiring employees on the basis of merit consistent with human rights; • Providing students with educational programs that will assist them in participating in and contributing to a diverse society; • Reducing language and cultural barriers; • Communicating effectively with all students, parents, employees and other partner groups in the diverse community.

Notice to Electors of Alternative Approval Process (AAP) Columbia Street Widening This notice is to advise electors in the City of Kamloops of the intention to adopt the “Columbia Street Widening Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 14-1-175”. The purpose of the bylaw is to borrow an amount not to exceed $2,090,000 to finance the cost to widen Columbia Street from 3rd Avenue to 6th Avenue, that will be repaid over a period not to exceed 15 years. It is estimated that the borrowing will result in a tax increase of $3.26 per year for the average residential property. A copy of Bylaw No. 14-1-175 and a summary of the proposal are available from the Legislative Services Division at City Hall during business hours each business day of the week. For project details, please contact Darren Crundwell, Capital Projects Manager, at 250-8283535 or dcrundwell@kamloops.ca. The City of Kamloops Council proposes to borrow the money to widen Columbia Street unless, by 4:30 pm on March 2, 2015, at least 10% of the electors in the whole of the City of Kamloops sign an elector response form opposing the implementation of the proposal unless the City of Kamloops holds a vote. The number of elector responses required to prevent the City of Kamloops from proceeding unless a vote is held is estimated to be 6,841. A report respecting the basis on which this determination was made is available upon request from the Legislative Services Division, City Hall. Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms Elector responses are required to be submitted to the City of Kamloops on forms that can be obtained during regular business hours from the Legislative Services Division at City Hall; the form may also be downloaded from the main page of the City of Kamloops website at www.kamloops.ca. The only elector response forms that will be accepted by the City of Kamloops are the ones provided by the City of Kamloops, or an accurate copy of the form. Only electors of the City of Kamloops are eligible to sign the elector response forms. There are two types of electors - resident electors and non-resident property electors. Resident elector - a person who is a Canadian citizen, is 18 years of age or older, has resided in BC for the previous six months and has resided in the City of Kamloops for the previous 30 days, and is not disqualified by the Local Government Act, any other Act, of the Courts from voting in a general local election (prior to signing an elector response form during an AAP). Non-resident property elector - a person who is a Canadian citizen, is 18 years of age or older, has resided in BC for the previous six months and has owned property in the City of Kamloops for the previous 30 days, and is not disqualified by the Local Government Act, any other Act, of the Courts from voting in a general local election (prior to signing an elector response form during an AAP).

West to speak at TRU American author, activist and academic Cornel West will be at Thompson Rivers University next week for a lecture open to the public. West, an outspoken critic of what he calls institutional racism against African-Americans, has been on the lecture circuit in recent weeks, talking about a range of issues, including much-publicized police shootings of black men and Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground Law. He was arrested last year while in Ferguson, Mo., while protesting the police shooting of Michael Brown. West, a frequent commentator on CNN and Fox News, also made headlines when he called U.S. President Barack Obama a “brown-faced Bill Clinton,” describing Obama’s presidency as “a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national-security presidency.” His Jan. 29 appearance is part of the TRU Students’ Union’s Common Voice lecture series. West will speak at 5 p.m., in the Grand Hall at the Campus Activity Centre. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Tickets are available at the TRUSU members’ services desk.

PARENTS — KEEP COOL AT THE RINK

A

t first glance, the idea to ban parents from the hockey rink may sound ridiculous. It happened this week when a Vancouver Island minor hockey association announced it was considering banning people in the stands for a weekend to send a message to incorrigible parents squawking at refs and players on the ice. On second glance, it may just be a good idea. There are many stories of parents duking it out because of what may or may not have happened on the ice and the reaction in the stands. This is why parents of players in the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association must pay to take an online respect-in-hockey course. The problems is not limited to minor hockey. In November, a restraining order was placed on a woman who was harassing the Kootenay Ice of the WHL, the Detroit Red Wings of the NHL and others about her sons’ hockey careers. Earlier this month, a Burnaby hockey dad was given a conditional discharge and 12 months’ probation for threatening a nine-year-old minor hockey player. One blogger posted a video this week (date of its origin unknown) that was shot from the stands of a minor-hockey game. A parent, from Florida, suddenly stands up in a rage over a ref’s decision and smashes his hand against the glass, shattering it. So, maybe having a no-spectator weekend might put things into perspective for parents who dish out thousands of dollars in gear, travel and fees for their kids to play hockey. Hockey is there for kids to participate in organized sport, make friends and have fun. What fun is it when you have to embarrassingly hang your head low on the ice or in the dressing room when your parents are the ones screaming from the stands? For the sake of the kids, volunteers and referees, keep it classy.

Of terrorism and crimes

H

ow would you define terrorism? More to the point, would your definition of terrorism be in any way different from the definition of the terrorism offence already enshrined in the Criminal Code of Canada? In the view of Bill Sundhu, Kamloops lawyer, former judge and federal NDP candidate, a crime is a crime is a crime and criminal acts — yes, even terrorism acts — are addressed in the criminal code. “All violence is a crime,” Sundhu told a small gathering this week at the Smorgasbord Deli as he spoke on what terrorism means post-Sept. 11, 2001. “A crime is a crime. A murder is a murder.” By introducing bills to create new laws aimed specifically at terrorist acts, as the Conservative government is now doing, is a way for such governments to pander to a public fear that may not be warranted. Sundhu has helped Tunisia judges learn how to incorporate human rights while applying the law and is on the list of counsel for the International Criminal Court in The Hague. He said the terrorism model disregards the criminal model and can remove the individual from the crime. The positing of good vs. evil can erode human rights, he said, citing Ronald Reagan’s reference to the “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union and George W. Bush’s constant reminder that the “Axis of Evil” was a danger to the West. “We go down this pathway

MUSINGS and it can be exploited by leaders,” said Sundhu, who will comment on the Conservatives’ proposed legislation via the Canadian Bar Association. “People lose their freedoms not by a big event but by a thousand little acts,” he said. “History repeatedly shows us that the state response is almost invariably worse than the threat.” As Sundhu noted, the postSecond World War Nuremberg Trials, the aftermath of the Rwanda slaughter and the response to genocide in the former Yugoslavia were all carried out with criminal prosecutions. Sundhu’s Us vs. Them analogy is instructive as it becomes more and more difficult to not view the global mess without that lens. I am cynical enough to know the West does not always wear the white hat, that not all Muslim countries are itching to eliminate the infidels among me. Yet, it is extremely difficult to shake that Us vs. Them script rotating in my mind every time I see video of ISIS militants urging others to attack Canada or every

time I read of another innocent beheaded. Yes, I realize the military might of the West has killed innocents that belong to Them, but it remains difficult to not separate the two acts into Good vs. Evil. That is not to say Sundhu is absolutely right or absolutely wrong. It is to say perspective has plenty to do with one’s reaction to barbaric acts. After all, one man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist. Sundhu’s discussion was illuminating, but some of what he said must be understood in the political context of how it was said. Sundhu is the NDP candidate for Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo in this year’s federal election, so criticism of the governing Conservatives is to be expected — and he was speaking to the choir, as it were. But, his comments on proposed terrorism legislation are valid and definitely food for thought. Canada has had two specific pieces of anti-terrorism laws since the 2001 attacks, he noted, and only one has been used — and only once — so why the need for more legislation? As the election campaign nears, Sundhu’s opponents, Conservative Cathy McLeod and Liberal Steve Powrie, will certainly add their voice to this particular debate. And, it is an important debate as how our nation chooses to approach the mess in the Middle East will affect generations of Canadians. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

YOUR OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

THANKS A BUNCH, KAMLOOPS!

FROM BYLAW BATTLES TO DOGGIE HEAVEN Editor: We just wanted to let Kamloops people know that our notorious bylaw canine, our 12-yearold golden retriever, Abbey, has gone to doggie heaven. Abbey was an incredible dog who loved everyone and who was loved by everyone. She is missed. Ed and Jan Odgaard Kamloops

Editor: The 2015 Kamloops International Bantam Ice Hockey Tournament (KIBIHT) has come and gone. Countless hours of planning and preparation yielded another successful tournament consisting of approximately 600 players in the 13-and-14-year-old range. Add to this their 160-or-so coaches, managers and trainers and one can better visualize the impact this prestigious event has on the Kamloops hockey world and the City of Kamloops. This annual spectacle could and would not happen without community involvement. Our volunteers have once again come forward, anxious to participate and do whatever is needed to make things run smoothly. Our sponsors contribute dollars to support the community that supports them and show their employees and customers that they give back. Parents and families of the players give moral and financial support to their kids, who not only enjoy the sport, but strive to be a part of KIBIHT. The often taken-for-granted referees probably have the hardest job, but keep

coming back for more. The City of Kamloops provides support, without which we would certainly struggle. Let’s not forget the fans for coming out to watch our future hockey stars and the media for their interest and coverage. Lastly, kudos to the KIBIHT directors and committee members, who unselfishly find time throughout the year to give of themselves for nothing more than the feeling of satisfaction, to be able to continue the legacy of the Kamloops International Bantam Ice Hockey Tournament, known around the hockey world. As long as Kamloops has bantam hockey, there will be KIBIHT. A huge thank you to all. Ted Kowalsky KIBIHT chairman Editor: I would like to thank the paramedics who were recently called to my house. They saved my son’s life. They are my heroes and my angels. I can’t thank them enough. I don’t know their names, but they are in my heart forever. Wynn Feser Kamloops

ACTIONS AROUND KENNEWICK MAN DEPLORABLE Editor: Re: Tom Fletcher’s column of Jan. 13 (‘Battle for Kennewick Man’): Fletcher gave a good summary and comment about Kennewick Man. The discovery of Kennewick Man caused quite a stir in archeology and anthropology circles over the potential for new information, with articles in news magazines and coverage on television. Then the actions of native peoples suggested

the new information could jeopardize their claim of “first� peoples, so Kennewick Man was kept in isolation. Now, it seems, scientists are also reluctant to investigate because new information may mean they have to change their accepted theories. Here I thought scientists should be eager to discover new information so their theories would more accurately reflect what really happened.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wants to keep Kennewick Man away from scrutiny, probably to avoid the embarrassment of the truth of their own actions becoming public. Such human nature carries over to politics, where tribal dogma is so cherished that any suggestion of a different way of doing things is rejected. We sure have a great civilization, don’t we?

Interest rate change to help some not all CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The quarter-point drop in the Bank of Canada’s key rate may put a few dollara in the pockets of those with variable rate mortgages, but is unlikely to help firsttime buyers who must qualify on a far-higher fixed rate. “For people who have that [variable] rate, they’ll have more money going to principal,” said Starr Webb, owner the Dominion Lending Centres downtown. “For those with fixed rate, there’s no change.”

Webb said the decline in the variable rate means those who don’t need a mortgage backed by insurance could be paying as little two per cent interest, in some cases slightly lower, depending on whether Canada’s big banks pass on the cut or edge up the discount from prime to offset it. Fixed rates are tied to the bond market and forecasters say those could also come down in coming weeks. Both Webb and Cynthia Li, a mortgage broker at Verico Bava Financial Corp., said the decline, along with the possibility another

one may follow, may convince more borrowers to move to a floating rate if they are up for renewal. “The fixed rate is still more popular,” Li said. Ingrid Pfeiffer, president of Kamloops & District Real Estate Association, said the city has not seen excessive housing valuations like markets in Vancouver and Calgary. She doesn’t believe the drop in mortgage rates or oil prices on Alberta buyers will have impact on what continues to be a stable market. “People like to come to B.C.,”

she said. “I just dealt with people from Lethbridge who are looking at buying.” Shuswap realtor Kent Redekop, who estimates he sells 50 per cent of waterfront property on Shuswap Lake, acknowledged oil’s sudden and dramatic slide will take Alberta buyers out of that market. At the peak of the Shuswap’s waterfront mania in 2007, he said 90 per cent of his buyers were from Alberta. The next two years, amid the Great Recession, the number was zero.

“They really drive the market here,” he said. Values in the waterfront market haven’t risen since 2011, Redekop said. He had expected that to change this year with what he called a “gently rising market.” But, he acknowledged oil’s plunge below $50 a barrel will take some Alberta buyers out of the market. “The waterfront market starts in March. I expect Alberta buyers will still be there this year . . . Rich guys always seem to have the money.”

Math Expo runs today at Henry Grube Education Centre EVENT’S AIM IS ‘ENHANCED LEARNING’ IN KAMLOOPS DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

When a student chooses a subject to research and then heads out to complete the project, they’ve already taken a big

buy-in step and are likely to not just learn, but enjoy as they learn. That’s not always the reality with textbook learning and it’s one of the reasons why the KamloopsThompson school district has offered a

math expo every year for the past quartercentury for students in grades 4 to 7. Art Blackwell, director of curriculum and instruction with the school district, said the expo is one of several special events, like the young-authors’ conference of the district science fair, that give students

the opportunity for enhanced learning. In this case, the expo, which takes place today (Jan. 23) at the Henry Grube Education Centre, looks at patterns in numbers and life — in any manner the 47 students taking part want to pursue the theme. For some, that

might mean working with a mentor, be it a parent or community expert, Blackwell said. For others, it may be putting in more work than they might have been required to do in a basic textbook assignment. Submissions aren’t judged but, collectively, provide an atmosphere for the

students to celebrate what they’ve learned, Blackwell said. Students also get the opportunity to share their work publicly and talk about their research and results. The expo will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the centre, 245 Kitchener Cres., at the north end of Overlanders Bridge.

Walking for Violet SMEATON AMONG THE MANY MOURNING LOVED ONES AT THE ALZHEIMER’S WALK FOR MEMORIES JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Wally Smeaton has the experience needed to lend a hand at the Alzheimer’s Society. He knows how to talk to people, having taught for 33 years in Kamloops elementary schools, and he has dealt with the disease firsthand — twice. It’s why he is helping out at the society as a support-group facilitator and, along with wife Vi, who died from the disease a year ago today (Jan. 23), is being honoured at the annual Investors Group Walk for Memories fundraiser, in support of the society. Violet was diagnosed with the disease in 2000. Wally said once the diagnosis was official, he realized his wife

may have had it long before. One time, for instance, when the couple was travelling together, shortly after Wally retired, she was talking to someone and turned to him and said, “Just don’t leave me here,” he recalled. “That wasn’t my Vi.” Married for more than 55 years, Wally knew her to be someone who enjoyed good adventure, with their many trips camping and fishing in the area with their eight kids. Violet went into a care home in 2005 and died from the disease just before last year’s fundraiser walk, with the family attending in her memory. While Wally mourns his wife on the anniversary of her death, he is happy to have about 40 family members — including his kids,

grandchildren and many more friends — join again this year on Sunday, Jan. 25, at the Tournament Capital Centre to make that first lap — the honour lap — together. “I’ve ordered 70 shirts and I’m quite sure all 70 will be worn,” Wally said. Tara Hildebrand, support and education co-ordinator, said Wally understands the disease. The disease is different for everybody, Hildebrand said, while noting women represent 72 per cent of Canadians living with the disease. “Some people have a rapid progression, some people have rapid progression for a period of time, then tend to plateau, other people it’s a slow progression for years and years,” she said.

She said a common misconception is that the disease is simply memory loss. “It’s far more encompassing,” she said. “What people don’t understand is that this is a terminal illness. “This disease will make this person unremember and unlearn everything in their life.”

Wally is looking forward to the event because it wasn’t too long ago when he needed the help. “Support, information, realizing that others had the disease, they were going through it,” he said. “How to access help from all the various agencies, that really helped, too.” And, he’ll continue

helping the society once the event is over as a support-group facilitator, aiding with monthly meetings — the ones he once attended. The event — which raises money through gaining pledges from donors — takes place in 24 communities across the province and is the largest fundraiser for

the society. Upwards of 600 to 800 people have attended in Kamloops in the past to walk at least one lap on the indoor track. Sign up in advance by going online to walkformemories.com or simply show up at the event. Registration is at 9 a.m. The walk is from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

onnor Ingram may not inhabit Ilya Bryzgalov’s universe, but there are people out there with fewer quirks than the Kamloops Blazers’ netminder. The 17-year-old Ingram can be as weird as he wants to be, so long as pucks keep staying out of his net. The Imperial, Sask., product is 4-0-0-1 this month, with a .955 save percentage and a 1.48 goals-against average. KTW caught up with him after he backstopped the Blue and Orange to a 3-1 victory over the Tri-City Americans at Interior Savings Centre on Wednesday, Jan. 21. Here are 10 questions with Connor Ingram:

KTW: Goalies are known to be a little bit out there, so how weird are you? CI: Definitely up there. I live with [Jesse] Zaharichuk and he tells me he doesn’t like me on game days because I’m not as fun. You’ve got to dial it in. You try and stay as loose as possible, but I’ve got my own little weird things. If you watch me on the ice, you’ll pick up on some stuff. KTW: What are your fondest memories of your hometown, Imperial, Sask.? CI: We’ve got a nice water tower. The grain elevator is painted on my helmet. I think always going down to the rink whenever I wanted. I never understood these city kids and having to get ice time. If there wasn’t practice going on, I was always down there.

KTW: What’s your biggest fear? CI: Getting in a goalie fight. I always show the ref I’m not wearing my tiedowns so he’ll bail me out. KTW: If Blazers’ assistant coach Terry Bangen and head coach Don Hay were to drop the gloves, who would win the fight? CI: Can I pick Murr [Blazers’ assistant Chris Murray]? Is that an answer? Terry is a bit smaller, but I think he’d be pretty feisty. I might have to give it to Don, though. He’s got the size on him. KTW: Who has better hands, Mike Needham or Matt Needham? CI: Mike always comes in and tries to score on me. If you take away five-hole, he’s not got much left. I’m going to give it to Matt.

“I’ve been having some trouble with Kamloops drivers lately,” Kamloops Blazers’ netminder Connor Ingram told KTW. “I got cut off the other day. I made sure I let him know, though.”

He’s definitely a little bit off, but “nothing too weird. He’s a pretty normal, relaxed guy who doesn’t get too uptight. — Cole Ully on Connor Ingram

KTW: What’s your biggest pet peeve? CI: I’ve been having some trouble with Kamloops drivers lately. I got cut off the other day. I made sure I let him know, though. KTW: What’s going on in your mind when an opponent has a breakaway?

CI: Bail or don’t get scored on. There’s lots of people here so, most of the time, it’s don’t make me look stupid. I just try and stay in the centre of the net. KTW: What are your pregame rituals? CI: Just a pre-game nap. We’ve been playing some Chell [EA Sports NHL hock-

For what is possibly the first time in his university career, Josh Wolfram is the guy. No more Ta’Quan Zimmerman, no more Kevin Pribilsky, no more Will Ondrik. In 2014-2015, Wolfram has been expected to be the No. 1 weapon for the WolfPack men’s basketball team, night in and night out. How has the 6-foot10 forward responded? By leading the Canada West in rebounding, posting eight doubledoubles (reaching double-digits in rebounds and points in a night) through 12 games and scoring at a rate of 19.3 points a night, thirdbest in the conference. “I feel like the team and myself put a lot of work in over the summer and I feel like I’ve really grown into it with the help of my teammates,” Wolfram told KTW. “They’ve done a really good job of finding me in positions where I can be successful.” What might scare the rest of the Canada West is TRU head coach Scott Clark doesn’t think Wolfram is finished developing yet. “I think he’s in satisfactory condition,” Clark said, as his 7-5 WolfPack were preparing to face the 4-8 MacEwan Griffins at the Tournament Capital Centre tonight (Jan. 23). “I think he could get in really good shape. “That’s always exciting because you think, there’s more growth left in him, in terms of him becoming better.” Wolfram’s evolution as a player has been well documented in Kamloops. After playing his Grade 11 season alongside Kelly Olynyk at South Kamloops, he led the Titans to a seventh-place provincial ranking in his senior year. He played his first two seasons of CIS basketball for the Calgary DInos before returning to his hometown Kamloops to join Clark and the WolfPack. Wolfram was a much different player in his early tenure with TRU, especially physically.

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

Josh Wolfram and the TRU WolfPack are in Canada West basketball action this weekend in Kamloops.

Clark has spoken at length about the state of the 22-year-old’s conditioning when he joined the WolfPack — he weighed in at about 250 pounds, out of shape and lacking strength. But Wolfram re-committed to his training under Clark, going as far as jogging weekly with the head coach as part of his off-season training.The hard work now appears to be paying dividends. “One of the things I think young people, or even people in the general public, need to understand is it’s not just, ‘I’ll crank it up for two months or six weeks to get ready for the season.,’” Clark said. “Really, Josh’s success here has been a culmination of two years of preparation.” “It’s different for every player,” Wolfram said. “Some guys come out of high school ready to play the college game. I came out of high school and I wasn’t finished growing, so it took me a little longer than lots of people.” Wolfram has put up some dominant performances this season, three times finishing with 29 or 30 points despite drawing double coverage from the opposition, Clark said. And, the mental side of the game has come with the progression of

his physical abilities. Wolfram’s learning to extend himself each and every night, to go into each game with the mindset that he is expected, and required, to be the best player on the court. “Part of that is just the metamorphosis of understanding, ‘This is what I’m capable of,’” Clark said. “I still think that his self-vision, if that’s the word — he needs to have a higher regard for himself. I think he knows he’s pretty good, I don’t think he knows that he could be really good.” Wolfram will continue his progression at 8 p.m. tonight, and again tomorrow at the same time, against a Griffins team which Clark predicts will be playing “with a level of desperation and urgency,” as a team currently on the outside looking in at the playoffs. The WolfPack returned to the Tournament Capital with a split when they played the Griffins in Edmonton earlier this season, a finish Wolfram and company hope to improve upon. “We just need to work hard and rebound the ball and I think we give ourselves a pretty good chance to be successful,” he said.

Excellence in Orthopedic Physiotherapy

Storm trusting Mullen

Eliminate your pain, regain your quality of life

ADAM WILLIAMS

STAFF REPORTER

adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

If you look solely at his stats, it’s hard to see what the Kamloops Storm see in Jacob Mullen. The Storm’s new starting goaltender came to Kamloops in a trade with the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Jan. 9. To the naked eye, his 3-21-1 record in Grand Forks, along with his 4.33 goals-against average and .906 save percentage, might make a few Storm fans squirm. But, more important than stats to head coach Ed Patterson and company was what they saw in Mullen when he took to the ice. “We like Jake a lot. We loved him, or loved to hate him, when he played against us and stopped 55 shots,” Patterson said, recalling the Storm’s Nov. 16 game in Grand Forks. Mullen stopped 55 of 59 shots that day and very nearly stole a victory for his team. The Storm managed to win the game in double overtime. Playing in Kamloops will certainly be a different scene for Mullen — the Storm are a team with eyes for another shot at the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League title and will expect the goaltender to shoulder the lion’s share of the minutes in getting them there. At 7-29-13, Grand Forks didn’t have any dreams of being a playoff team. Mullen will be less busy with Kamloops, too. In Grand Forks, he averaged nearly 50 shots a night. In five starts for the Storm, he has seen closer to 20. “Usually I go into a game thinking, just keep it close. I know I’m going to get 50, 60 shots,” Mullen said. “Here, it’s a lot different. I’ve got to make the saves when the time comes, keep the team in it.” “Mental focus is a big thing, because you’re bored for 10, 15 minutes and then, teams make mistakes and in

Jacob Mullen (right) did not have great statistics during his stay in Grand Forks, but that did not keep the Kamloops Storm from acquiring him in a trade. The move is paying off so far.

KIJHL FACEOFF

GAME #41

Tonight (Jan. 23) Kamloops @ Chase 7 p.m. Art Holding comes a breakaway.” Mullen was faced with that exact situation last Friday, Jan. 16, in his 2-0 shutout victory over the 100 Mile House Wranglers. After a prolonged period of Storm offensive pressure, a Wranglers player broke in on a breakaway and was turned aside by Mullen. Patterson and Storm goaltending coach Dustin Slade praised Mullen’s ability to stay focused. “Like tonight, he makes the timely saves, the right ones,” Patterson said, recalling the breakaway stop. “Every goalie is going to let in a goal, but it’s the times they make the timely saves which breaks games open.” The acquisition of 19-year-old Mullen will allow the Storm to use

17-year-old goaltender Bailey De Palma as they had original intended — in a tandem where he can learn and progress under a veteran starter, preparing to be the team’s starter down the road. In 20 appearances for the Storm this season, De Palma recorded a 9-5-0-0 record, with a 2.66 goals-against average and an .895 save percentage. “I’m pretty confident in both our guys right now,” Slade said. “They’re both athletic, they’re both quick and they work really, extremely hard in practice. “So it’s nice to have two guys to work with that have good attitudes and I have all the confidence in both.” With 13 games remaining on the schedule, Mullen will presumably see the majority of the Storm’s starts, in preparation for what the team hopes will be a prolonged playoff run. Kamloops will be in action again tonight (Jan. 23), on the road to face the Chase Heat. “The guys are playing great in front of him,” Patterson said last week. Heading

into the Storm’s game against Chase, Mullen was 5-0 with Kamloops. “We’re feeling confident with the whole group, no matter from top to bottom, up front, on the back end and in goal. “The best part is, they’re all trying to get better every day.”

it’s a nice vote of confidence from the province, just sort of noting the level of competitions we are hosting,” said Classics head coach Brad Dalke. He added the province approached the Classics about hosting the event, which he called a “feather in the hat” of the club. “Basically, what it does for the region and the local, it just promotes swimming at a far higher level than what we have currently,” Dalke said. The meet will include two tiers of swimming — Summer Club Swimming of the B.C. Summer Swimming Association and Winter Club Swimming of Swim BC and Swimming Canada. The sheer size of the meet will be a new challenge for the Classics and Dalke. At 1,100 swimmers, the B.C. High School Swimming Championships will be one of the largest meets ever hosted in the Tournament Capital. Dalke is expecting it will take the club and the City of Kamloops some time to prepare. The groups are arranging for more bleachers to be added to the mezzanine at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre and hope to use the Tournament Capital Centre’s other facilities as hosting areas. But, on the competition side, the championships won’t be much different than the average Kamloops meet. Because the events are open, swimmers won’t be separated by age, reducing the number of events and the time required to hold them. The meet will only include sprint events, with the 200-metre individual medley the longest distance.

Fans of Dylan Armstrong are invited to attend a celebratory dinner at Thompson Rivers University on Feb. 15, after the shot putter receives Olympic bronze.

Dinner for Dylan The Kamloops Track and Field Club is hosting a celebratory dinner after Dylan Armstrong receives Olympic bronze at the Tournament Capital Centre on Feb. 15. Tickets cost $35 for the dinner, which will be held in either the Mountain Room or the Grand Hall at Thompson Rivers University, depending on how many tickets are sold. Armstrong placed fourth in shot put at the 2008 Olympic Summer Games in Beijing. The Belarusian

who placed third has since been disqualified for doping. The medal ceremony will be held at 12:45 p.m. at the TCC. Cocktails will be served at 6 p.m. and dinner will begin at 7 p.m. To purchase tickets for the dinner, email Judy Armstrong at j2armstrong@shaw.ca. The deadline to buy tickets is Feb. 6. CBC broadcaster Scott Russell will speak at the dinner, as will other local dignitaries.

It’s sitting on the front-office counter at St. Ann’s Academy in a glass case, but it’s not just another ordinary basketball. It’s autographed by Kelly Olynyk, sophomore star of the NBA’s Boston Celtics, and it could be yours for a very small investment. The St. Ann’s athletic department is raffling the basketball as a fundraiser and, with just 300 tickets available, the odds of winning are excellent. Even better is the $2 price of the tickets, which are available at the St. Ann’s Academy front office. The draw will be made on Friday, Feb. 6, at the school, as part of the week-long Catholic Schools Week program. “Kelly’s achievements are an inspiration to local basketball

Cherry: Toronto jersey throwers are ‘jerks’ STEPHEN WHYNO

THE CANADIAN PRESS

ST. CATHARINES — Don Cherry doesn’t want to pile on the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the popular television personality called fans who throw jerseys onto the ice “jerks’’ and “creeps.’’ Cherry, who coached at the junior, minor-league and NHL levels, said he feels sorry for interim Leafs coach Peter Horachek and assistant Steve Spott as they go through this ordeal. The Leafs have lost six in a row and 14 of their last 17 games. “Even on Coach’s Corner, I never really kick guys when they’re down and, boy, they’re down now,’’ Cherry said at the Canadian Hockey League top prospects game, where he’s coaching against

friend Bobby Orr. “There’s no way I’m kicking them when they’re down because they’re actually in a nightmare right now.’’ Toronto’s losing run cost Randy Carlyle his job and the coaching change hasn’t turned the team’s fortunes around. Cherry said he knows what that’s like from one season behind the bench of the Colorado Rockies.

“You go to bed thinking of it and the family suffers,’’ Cherry said. “You get up and it’s a nightmare. At the time I was the highest paid coach at the time and I’d give it all up to win.’’ Cherry didn’t want to rip the Leafs, but he had no problems sharing his thoughts on fans who have thrown their jerseys onto the ice at Air Canada Centre. “You’ve got four or five guys, they come in with the sweaters to throw on the ice, they’re hoping they lose,’’ Cherry said. “They’re jerks. I cannot believe that people sit beside them and watch them throw . . . They’re creeps, that’s as far as I’m concerned, that would do that.’’ Toronto is 22-23-3 on the campaign and sits seventh in the Atlantic Division.

Bieksa out indefinitely with broken hand Kevin Bieksa will be out of the Vancouver Canucks’ lineup indefinitely as he recovers from surgery on a broken hand. The club announced Wednesday (Jan. 22) night that Bieksa will require surgery. He broke his hand in Tuesday’s 4-1 loss to

the Lightning in Tampa Bay. Bieksa has three goals, six assists and a minus-4 rating in 45 games this season. Vancouver entered the all-star break with a record of 26-16-3, good enough for third place in the Pacific Division.

Brazil’s new, pricey World Cup stadium needs repairs STEPHEN WADE

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RIO DE JANEIRO — A new stadium in the western Brazilian city of Cuiaba is being closed for “emergency repairs’’ just seven months after it held four World Cup matches. The 42,000-seat Arena Pantanal, which cost about $230 million to build, was being shut to “fix many construction problems in order to provide security to users,’’ officials in Brazil’s Mato Grosso state said yesterday (Jan.22). The statement said among the stadium’s problems was water leaks. Brazil spent about $3 billion — 90 per cent of it public money — on 12 new and refurbished stadiums. It was widely criticized for chaotic planning, and for building at least four “white elephants,’’ one of which is in Cuiaba. Many stadium operators have struggled since the World Cup to find tenants and ways to service the debt. Some are being used for childrens’ events, religious services, or mass weddings. “The Mato Grosso Football Federation is co-operating with the government to carry out the

emergency works and agrees the stadium should only be open if it poses no risks to users,’’ the statement said. The Cuiaba stadium faced repeated construction delays, including a fire that charred part of the underground portion during the building phase. Many other World Cup-related projects in the city were cancelled, delayed, or have yet to be completed. General Secretary Jerome Valcke, the top FIFA official in charge of the World Cup, acknowledged this week in Sao Paulo that some World Cup stadiums were being underused. Valcke said it would “take time to use all the stadiums at their maximum.’’ Cuiaba, an agricultural-based city in western Brazil, has two local teams that draw 500 to 1,000 fans, and no need for a 42,000-seat stadium. FIFA required only eight stadiums for the World Cup, but Brazilian politicians and construction companies lobbied football officials to spread the matches around the country. Other “white elephants’’ were built in Natal, Manaus and the capital Brasilia.

The Angel On Your Shoulder By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

There’s an angel on your shoulder Though you may not know she’s there, She watches over you day and night And keeps you in her care. There’s an angel on your shoulder Watching you learn and grow Keeping you safe from danger And nurturing your soul. She’ll be there through your triumphs She’ll dance on clouds with pride, She’ll hold your hand through disappointments and fears, Standing faithfully by your side. In her lifetime this angel was strong and true, And stood up for what was right. In your life you’ll be faced with decisions and trials And she’ll shine down her guiding light. Life holds so much in store for you, So remember as you grow older, There are no heights you cannot reach ‘Cause there’s an angel on your shoulder. Bereavement Publishing Inc. 5125 N.

If Tomorrow Never Comes But just in case I might be wrong, And today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you And I hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, If I knew it would be the last time Young or old alike, that I see you walk out the door, And today may be the last chance I would give you a hug and kiss You get to hold your loved one tight. And call you back for one more. So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, If I knew it would be the last time Why not do it today? I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, For if tomorrow never comes, so I could play them back day after day. You’ll surely regret the day, That you didn’t take that extra time If I knew it would be the last time, For a smile, a hug, or a kiss I could spare an extra minute And you were too busy to grant To stop and say “I love you,” someone, Instead of assuming you would KNOW What turned out to be their one last I do. wish. If I knew it would be the last time So hold your loved ones close today, I would be there to share your day, Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more, And whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them so I can let just this one slip away. And that you’ll always hold them dear For surely there’s always tomorrow Take time to say “I’m sorry,” To make up for an oversight, “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or And we always get a second chance “It’s okay.” To make everything just right. And if tomorrow never comes, There will always be another day You’ll have no regrets about today. To say “I love you,” © Norma Cornett Marek ~ 1989 And certainly there’s another chance To say our “Anything I can do?” If I knew it would be the last time That I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly And pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

Boys behind video GIBRALTER MINE say it was a joke First Nation launches its own â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How to Kill Your Teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; posted on YouTube THE CANADIAN PRESS

CASTLEGAR â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two boys who made an online video titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;How to Kill Your Teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; have told police in Castlegar that it was intended as a joke. RCMP say they have let the 11and 13-year-olds know that anyone who considers themselves a target of such a video may take it very differently. Cpl. Debbie Postnikoff said yesterday (Jan. 22) that police have also spoken with the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parents and school officials to try to understand why they created the video, which shows them holding toy guns and referring to a Ms. D. Charges will not be pursued due to the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ages, Postnikoff said. She said Mounties are working with school officials, the boys and their parents to hold the children accountable for their behaviour as they put together a plan to ensure it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue. Greg Luterbach, superintendent of the Kootenay-Columbia school district, said officials are dealing with police and other agencies, which may

include the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ministry, to conduct a violence-risk assessment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get as much data as you can to look at this to ascertain risk and then determine what kind of plan youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have moving forward,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly, the video is disturbing, highly inappropriate.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He noted itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for children to know the seriousness of sharing inappropriate content, even if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tempted by how easy it is to post to various sites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three clicks later, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Luterbach said the district will discuss ways to educate students in making wise choices when posting anything to the Internet, but added families also have a role to play in discussing such issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about what happened and where were bad decisions made along the way,â&#x20AC;? he said. Police in Nanaimo were initially notified about the video after a Florida radio host saw it and called the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newspaper, but its origin was then traced to the West Kootenay region, where the boys were identified as students in Castlegar.

study of mine expansion

VANCOUVER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A small First Nation says it has given up waiting for government and industry to address its concerns about the Gibraltar Mine expansion in B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Interior and has launched its own investigation. The ?Esdilagh First Nation has secured funding for a team of international experts to lead a community-driven healthimpact assessment, which it is calling the first of its kind any-

where in Canada. Chief Bernie Elkins Mack said the copper-molybdenum mine near Williams Lake has never undergone an in-depth environmental study, yet was approved for a major expansion. He said his First Nation has been trying for two years to get the province and Taseko Mines Ltd., the mineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner, to conduct a rigorous study, but has

not been able to reach an agreement. The study will explore the environmental, health and cultural impacts of the Gibraltar Mine and provide recommendations for Taseko and the provincial government. Taseko and the B.C. Ministry of Environment did not immediately respond to requests for comment. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Canadian Press

Maple mystery in Vancouver VANCOUVER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Vancouver park board official says the board will seek the maximum penalty if police manage to root out the person who chopped down 17 maple trees in a quiet residential neighbourhood. The felled sevenyear-old trees that lined both sides of a

street in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West End were discovered by residents on the morning of Jan. 7. Each 4.5-metretall maple had been cleanly sliced at about waist height, its branches toppling onto the lawn in the direction it was cut. Howard Normann, acting manager of

the urban forestry division, said the park board reviewed records for any residents who might have been disgruntled by the trees, but turned up nothing. He said Vancouver police are now looking at video from security cameras mounted on some of the

areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homes filmed between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. that day. The board plans to begin replanting the trees at a cost of $10,000 and Normann said a fine is one potential consequence for the bylaw violation. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Canadian Press

Harper plays down BoC’s slashing of interest rate JENNIFER DITCHBURN

THE CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper is playing down the significance of the Bank of Canada’s surprise interest rate cut, saying his government is sticking with its plan to introduce tax cuts and balance the books. Harper made the remarks during a visit yesterday (Jan. 22) to a custom picture frame company, where he announced enhancements to the Canada Small Business Financing Program. On Wednesday, the bank shocked the financial and political world when it announced a quarter of a percentage point drop in the trendsetting interest rate. The bank linked the decision to the plummeting price

of oil, which it said “will weigh significantly on the Canadian economy.’’ Opposition leaders seized on the announcement to suggest the Conservative government has bungled its economic policy, particularly by earmarking billions for measures like income splitting for families with children. Harper emphasized that the economy is still expected to grow, albeit much slower. The Bank of Canada predicted growth would slow to 1.5 per cent in the first half of the year, and gradually pick up steam. He dismissed the suggestion that his government might change course in view of the price of oil, and said he remains committed to balancing the books. “Keeping our taxes low and having sound public finances

— this is the formula that has made the Canadian economy one of the most stable and solid in the world,’’ Harper said. “It’s the formula that’s given us 1.2 million net new jobs in a time of incredible volatility. So we’re going to continue on that general course.’’ The changes to the small business program will allow companies with gross annual revenue of $10 million or less — up from $5 million — to apply. They can borrow up to $500,000 each. The changes will allow entrepreneurs to borrow money to buy or improve land or buildings. Harper and the other federal leaders have been spending much of their time of late in southwestern Ontario, an area that will be key in deciding who forms the next government.

Pageant Sask. group helps queen, with food costs hockey theme NUNAVUT’S $200 TURKEY

THE CANADIAN PRESS

MIAMI — Miss Universe Canada is hoping to take home the crown at the pageant, but she’s already scored big buzz on social media with her outlandish hockey-themed costume. Chanel Beckenlehner took to the stage in a preliminary Miss Universe competition sporting a corseted bustier emblazoned with a black and white Maple Leaf. The Ontario native paired it with a skirt resembling goalpost netting. She also wore knee-high, lace-up boots reminiscent of skates, wings fashioned out of hockey sticks, and a replica of the Stanley Cup as a head piece, a scoreboard and a goaltender’s stick.

SASKATOON — A Saskatchewan group is looking to help families in Nunavut who are paying $6 for a can of soup and $200 for a turkey. Megan Clake of Helping Our Northern Neighbours says she wanted to get involved after seeing some of the high costs for basic groceries in the North. She and her family have been sponsoring a single mom in Nunavut since November. Clake is the organizer of the Saskatchewan chapter of the national group which started in British Columbia last summer. Some of its members were from Saskatchewan, but interest in the group exploded and the provincial arm now has 200 members. The group matches northern families in need with southern families who are willing to send

food either as a one-time donation or as part of a longer-term sponsorship. “It was just really hard to believe that whole communities are struggling with obtaining enough food to eat in a prosperous country like Canada,’’ Clake said. “We [her family] send up a food parcel every two months and it’s really nice to know that we’re making a difference. . . . If we send $100 worth of food, it’s really saving our recipient family $400 to $500 on their monthly grocery bill.’’ Clake said she is looking for more people in the province to sponsor families, donate food or give money to cover shipping costs. She hopes to expand the group further and possibly send care packages to families in need in northern Saskatchewan.

Defrocked Arctic priest says he’s sorry for sexual abuse KENT DRISCOLL

CROWN WANTS 25-YEAR JAIL SENTENCE

IQALUIT — A courtroom swelled with weeping, cries and 35 years of bottled-up grief yesterday (Jan. 22) as a defrocked priest who abused dozens of Inuit children told a judge about to sentence him that he’s sorry for his crimes and won’t commit any more. “I can only take responsibility for what I have done,’’ said Eric Dejaeger, 67, convicted on 32 counts of child sex abuse from his days as an Oblate missionary in Igloolik, Nunavut, between 1978 and 1982. Speaking quietly, in a voice heavily accented by his native Flemish, Dejaeger faced Justice Robert Kilpatrick in an Iqaluit

courtroom and spoke for less than a minute. “I would like to ask for forgiveness,’’ he said. “I promise not to reoffend — and that’s not just words.’’ That cued a crescendo of sorrow and tears from about 30 victims and supporters who had gathered to see their one-time tormentor for what they hoped was the last time. After court adjourned, one victim and his wife embraced in the middle of the room, motionless, she holding him up as everyone filed out around them. It was the end of a story that began for some victims when they were as young as four and which played out across three

THE CANADIAN PRESS

‘Racist’ award for Winnipeg THE CANADIAN PRESS

WINNIPEG — Winnipeg’s mayor tearfully promised to fight racism after the city was branded Canada’s most racist by a national magazine. Brian Bowman stood surrounded by dozens of aboriginal and community leaders and admitted the city has a problem with racism. The city’s first Metis mayor broke down in tears as he said he wants his boys to be proud of their heritage. He says there is no doubt racism exists in Winnipeg and he is determined to do something about it. Former national chief Ovide Mercredi says he has experienced racism, but has not let that define him. Macleans magazine published a cover story yesterday (Jan. 22) labelling Winnipeg Canada’s most racist city.

decades and two continents. It raised questions about the role of the Catholic church and Canadian officials in delaying justice for those still suffering mental scars from horrific attacks. The victims include 12 boys and 10 girls, most between the ages of eight and 12. Dejaeger also abused a dog in front of two children. Many testified that Dejaeger used his position to trap them into sex, threatening them with hellfire or separation from their families if they told. Sometimes he dangled food in front of hungry children as a lure. Dejaeger has already served one five-year sentence on

11 counts of assaulting children in Baker Lake, Nunavut, where he was posted after Igloolik. It was in 1995, after he had served that sentence, that he learned RCMP were about to charge him for his activities in Igloolik. He fled to his native Belgium, testifying in court that Canadian justice officials suggested it would be easiest if he simply left Canada, where he had become a citizen. Oblate officials have acknowledged that they knew Dejaeger was about to flee. For 16 years, he lived quietly in homes maintained by the order despite an international warrant for his arrest. Eventually, journalists revealed that

Dejaeger was living illegally in Belgium. He was returned in 2011. The Crown has asked for a 25-year sentence, which would be reduced to 17 years once credit for time already served is subtracted. Dejaeger’s lawyer says 12 years, of which no more than four would be spent behind bars, would be more in keeping with previous judgments. The defence says Dejaeger is being treated for cancer, has heart problems and fears dying in prison. Kilpatrick is expected to release a written decision by mid-February. Dejaeger is also expected to appear in court in Edmonton today on another four sex-related counts.

‘Prices are not going to bounce back’: Prentice CALGARY — Alberta Premier Jim Prentice says there’s no chance that the province can ride things out while waiting for a rebound in oil prices. Prentice said both financial and energy experts have made it clear prices aren’t going to bounce back any time soon. He said it’s expected a barrel of oil could be selling for $62 USD next year and maybe $68 USD the year after that. But, he added, it isn’t likely to move much beyond that for some time. Prentice said talks with Albertans about making up the revenue shortfall will include a flax tax versus a progressive tax. He said concern about a flax tax is that it is hard on lower-income individuals who are already struggling to make ends meet. — The Canadian Press

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largely been the case, he said, because adults are looking to tap into the experience and energy of being a kid, even if only for a few moments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I become a kid again when I pick up my guitar, and I become a kid again when I put on a good piece of music and dance around in my socks, and I become a kid again when I put on a pair of skates,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all kind of instances in our grown-up world when we just want to be in touch with that kid energy again â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the most functional and powerful tool to allow ourselves to do that is a story.â&#x20AC;?

The stories are, in many cases, ones Wagamese has performed for audiences across the country, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look for them in published form. Before they are performed, the works are often simple sketches, notes for a character to talk about one subject â&#x20AC;&#x201D; treaties, perhaps, or a ceremony â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and for another to respond in a certain manner. Much of the detail is worked out onstage in the heat of the moment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I feel like the audience needs a little more of a telling or an informational aspect, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll include that in the story,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I feel like they need some comedy, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll build more of that into it, or heighten the drama, or whatever I feel I need to do.â&#x20AC;?

The folks who run the Kamloops Film Society are hoping for better screenings after the November and December showings came complete with problems. Society president Tom Friedman said the November screening of The 100-YearOld Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared arrived with actors speaking their native Swedish language â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and no subtitles. Friedman said the society received several emails from people in the audience telling them they enjoyed the film, even if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak the language, and managed to follow the plot through the actors interactions. Earlier this month, the society screened Force Majeure â&#x20AC;&#x201D; also a Swedish film â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and things went well until, well into the film, the recording stopped playing.

over a piece of land. Other films announced include: â&#x20AC;˘ The Canada-India production The Backwards Class, a documentary-drama that looks at the caste system in Indian as students prepare for a national graduation exam that could impact their future; â&#x20AC;˘ The U.S.-France production Still Alice, starring Julianne Moore as a professor struggling with early onset Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Moore has been nominated for an Oscar for her performance. â&#x20AC;˘ CitizenFour, a GermanyU.S. documentary on the meeting between documentarian Laura Poitras and journalists Glenn Greenwald with U.S. government whistleblower Edward Snowden.

More film buzz

Thompson Rivers University is partnering with local non-profits in a film series on environmental and social issues.

The first in the series, Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?, will be shown on Thursday, Jan. 29 at the Alumni Theatre in the Clock Tower Building. It is being presented by GE-Free Kamloops. Directed by Taggart Siegeil, who also helmed The Real Dirt on Famer John, the documentary looks at the world of bees and beekeepers who strive to care for their hives in natural and holistic ways, rather than expose them to pesticides and other causes that scientists have said are leading to the disappearance of bees through Colony Collapse disorder. Featured in the documentary are world-renowned beekeeper Gunther Hauk, activist Vandana Shiva and author Michael Pollan. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is by donation. The series will screen a different film on the last Wednesday in upcoming months.

It was the same itinerary We walked at her pace down

the long hallway as she lagged behind, stopping often to catch her breath. The flight crew caught up to us, the last from the plane. They told us they would send a chair if they saw one before carrying on past us down the hallway. A hallway never seemed so long. We made our way to the end, down the escalator and around the corner to customs. The lady herding people through the lineup first ushered us through one of those mazetype lines that take forever to get through, before we finally said something and she let us through the side. There had been no one in line, after all. We were grateful, nonetheless, and, even more so when we made our way through customs and found someone with a wheelchair. It’s still unclear whether the crew sent it or whether it was the one on its way from the supposedly changed gate, but it was a relief either way. We wheeled her to the gate in Calgary and discarded the chair, wrongfully assuming that once

we had our ticket checked, the plane would be nearby. Instead, we walked downstairs, through a basement to the very end of another hallway. Another long haul — a good one for anyone packing heavy, but seemingly impossible for someone with health problems. We took so long ushering her to the end that one of us ran ahead to ask that the plane not take off without us. (Luckily, because the crew thought everyone had boarded.) When we got to Kamloops, she was offered a wheelchair upon arrival. Hallelujah and kudos. The hospitality of our mini, but mighty, airport elicited a sigh of relief, but I was left reeling over the experience. It wasn’t an easy travel situation, but it shouldn’t have been that hard. Why aren’t wheelchairs as accessible as bag trolleys? How could communication between airlines, staff and passengers improve airport accessibility for others? What if something had happened to her? I asked her how she felt about

the situation, which had distressed her to frustration and left her in an undignified manner. She said it caused anxiety. She wondered if she would make it at times. She said it was scary not being able to breathe. She said she felt like she was imposing on family and others. She said there are people who are in worse shape. “Actually, I thought I would not travel again,” she told me. She needed a wheelchair —plain and simple.

First, the church must Those who want to uphold the announce her Christian prinstatus quo would perhaps want ciples and point out where the us to “keep off the turf.” They existing social order is in conflict would term us as out of place in with these. complex situations. Second, it must then pass on Then, the church ought to to her Christian members, acting humbly reply, “We cannot tell

what the remedy is, but we can recognize a society with chronic unemployment as a diseased society.” If we are not doing all that we can to find the remedy, we are guilty before God. The church is likely to be attacked from both sides if she does her duty. She will be told that she has become political when, in fact, she has merely stated her principles and pointed out when these have been breached. The church, then, is sure to be told by advocates of particular policies that it is futile because she does not support their policies. If the church is faithful to its commission, she will ignore both sets of complaints and will continue, as far as possible, to influence all citizens and permeate all parties. Political issues are often concerned with people as they are, not as they ought to be. Part of the task of the church is to help people to order their lives in order to lead them to be what they ought to be. People are not utterly bad, but they are neither wholly good. Even our goodness is infected with self-centredness. For this reason, we are

exposed to temptation of obtaining as much power we can get. The church’s belief in original sin should make us realistic and free us from trying to create a utopia. There is no such thing as a Christian social ideal to which we should try to conform the society we live in, as closely as possible. After all, no one wants to live in the ideal society as depicted by anyone else. All true Christian thinking begins not with man, but with God. The world is not necessary to God in the same way as God is needed by a broken world. If there were no God, there would be no world. If there were no world, God would still be who he is. God was impelled to make the world because of his love. The world resulted out of his love. In making the world, he brought into existence vast numbers of things like electrons. These have to obey his law and do so. But, he made creatures, men and women, who could disobey his laws for them, and they have done from the beginning. He did this so that, among his creatures, there might be some who answer his love with theirs

by offering to him their obedience freely. This involved a risk in that they would naturally take the selfcentred outlook on life and then increasingly become hardened in that selfishness. To win them out of this, he came on earth and lived out the divine love in human form. The fundamental facts about human beings are two: First, we are made in the image of God. Second, that image has been stamped upon an animal nature. Between these two, there is constant tension, resulting in perpetual tragedies. Our true value is not what we are worth in ourselves, or what a balanced budget would do for us, but what we are worth to God. We must be treated as to what we actually are, but always with a view to what, in God’s purpose, we are destined to become. For the law of God, his social order, is our schoolmaster, to bring us to Christ and God.

FINANCIAL MATTERS Saving And Managing Money

COMMON TFSA MISTAKES Things you might not know about Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs), but should Tax-Free Savings Accounts have become a popular savings vehicle. While millions of Canadians have opened a TFSA, many are still making mistakes or missing opportunities that are costing them money.

INCREASE IN 2013 TFSA CONTRIBUTION LIMIT Since TFSAs were made available in 2009, you have been able to make contributions of up to $5,000 per year. Beginning in 2013, you will be able to contribute an additional $500 to your TFSA, raising the annual contribution limit to $5,500.

As a recap, a TFSA is a flexible, general purpose savings vehicle that allows you to make contributions each year and to withdraw funds at any time in the future. A TFSA provides a powerful incentive for you to save by allowing the investment growth to accumulate each year and be withdrawn taxfree. However, unlike a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), you cannot claim a tax deduction for contributions made to your TFSA and withdrawals are added back to your contribution room for the following year.

SPEAK TO YOUR ADVISOR TFSAs are a powerful savings vehicle whose significance will only grow over time. To fully maximize the benefits, and avoid the pitfalls, contact your advisor to understand how they work.

WITHDRAWAL OR TRANSFER? You can transfer from one TFSA to another provided the funds go directly to the new plan without having been paid to you first. If the funds are paid to you first, it will be considered a withdrawal and your TFSA room for the withdrawal amount will not be reinstated until the next calendar year. Recontributing to your TFSA in the same year as the withdrawal may result in an overcontribution and you could be subject to a penalty. SPOUSE AS BENEFICIARY OR SUCCESSOR HOLDER? If your spouse is named as the beneficiary of your TFSA, an amount up to the value of the TFSA at the time of your death can be contributed to his or her TFSA without affecting his or her TFSA contribution room if the contribution is made before the end of the year following the year of death and is designated as an exempt contribution. However, any income earned between the date of death and the contribution will be taxable to your spouse. It’s often recommended that, where permitted, you name your spouse as successor holder instead of as beneficiary. On your death, your spouse will automatically become the new holder of the TFSA. The TFSA continues to exist and both its value at the date of death and any income earned after that date continue to be sheltered from tax, with your spouse as the new holder. In addition, naming your spouse as successor holder avoids the administration and filing requirements necessary to preserve the tax-free status of the TFSA funds when your spouse is named as beneficiary. U.S. CITIZENS WITH A TFSA U.S. citizens, even those living in Canada, or other U.S. persons (e.g., green card holders) are required to report their worldwide income to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) each year, including any income earned in their TFSA as there is no treaty relief for TFSAs. Whether U.S. taxes will ultimately have to be paid will depend on the particular facts and whether sufficient foreign tax credits are available. If you are in this situation, speak to a crossborder tax specialist before investing in a TFSA.

LOCAL VIEWS HELP US KEEP THE COMMUNITY INFORMED If you see crime happening happening, we need to know know. Email tips@kamloopsthisweek.com

We are all Charlie Hebdo

A

nother day, another horrific act of terror courtesy of Islam and those who adhere to its more violent tenets and, of course, here in the West — denial. Denial that the folks who perpetrated this latest barbarity were acting according to their interpretation of Islam. Denial that this has anything to do with religion in general and Islam in particular. Here’s what a couple of the more knowledgeable folks who have had personal experience had to say:

Ayyan Hirsi Ali

“We have to acknowledge that today’s Islamists are driven by a political ideology, an ideology embedded in the foundational texts of Islam. “We can no longer pretend that it is possible to divorce actions from the ideals that inspire them.” Hirsi Ali, a fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, is the author of Infidel (2007).

Salman Rushdie

By David van Belle Produced in collaboration with Theatre Calgary “Powerful, sweet, poignant and often surprisingly funny” -Calgary Herald

“Certified crowd pleaser”

“Religion, a mediaeval form of unreason, when combined with modern weaponry becomes a real threat to our freedoms. “This religious totalitarianism has caused a deadly mutation in the heart of Islam and we see the tragic consequences in Paris today — ‘Respect for religion’ has become a code

BILL LIGERTWOOD

Rational

THOUGHTS phrase meaning ‘fear of religion.’ “Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire and, yes, our fearless disrespect.” We also have folks like the president of the American Catholic league, Bill Donahue, saying, “While some Muslims today object to any depiction of the Prophet, others do not. “Moreover, visual representations of him are not proscribed by the Qur’an. “What unites Muslims in their anger against Charlie Hebdo is the vulgar manner in which Muhammad has been portrayed. “What they object to is being intentionally insulted over the course of many years.” On this aspect, I am in total agreement with them. The rest of his statement can be found online, but suffice to say he apparently thinks these cartoonists got what was coming to them. We have heard similar sentiments from imams and Muslim clerics worldwide, including a

Canadian, Imtiaz Can Ahmed, an imam with Ahm the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, who said Com it should be against the sh law to publish cartoons that tha depict religious figures figu in a derogatory way. way The T vile creatures who wh perpetrated this crime did so while shouting religious phrases. They wished to be martyred and, thankfully, they got their wish. It is time for those of us who seem to be more concerned with political correctness than reality to wake up and smell the coffee. We need to stop pretending these acts are somehow divorced from the religious texts that inspire them. The Qur’an is an outdated call to violence and intolerance and needs to be reformed, but it needs to be done from the inside out. We will never be able to change what 1.5-billion people believe by bombing them into submission. The Muslim world needs to drag itself and its texts into the 21st century. Our local Imam would probably say these people are not true Muslims, thereby defending the texts they use to justify their actions. It is the texts, the Qur’an, that is the problem and the fact that it can be easily interpreted to justify such acts of barbarism. Yes the Christian Bible is also guilty of justifying unspeakable acts and, in the period

of our history know as the Dark Ages, they did just that. This is the Dark Age of Islam and as long as Muslims themselves refuse to act, these kinds of atrocities will continue. I close with another quote from Ali and her statement regarding the outrage in Paris: “We appease the Muslim heads of government who lobby us to censor our press, our universities, our history books, our school curricula. “They appeal and we oblige. We appease leaders of Muslim organizations in our societies. “They ask us not to link acts of violence to the religion of Islam because they tell us that theirs is a religion of peace and we oblige. “What do we get in return? Kalashnikovs in the heart of Paris. The more we oblige, the more we self-censor. The more we appease, the bolder the enemy gets. “There can only be one answer to this hideous act of jihad against the staff of Charlie Hebdo. “It is the obligation of the Western media and Western leaders, religious and lay, to protect the most basic rights of freedom of expression, whether in satire on any other form. “The West must not appease. It must not be silenced. “We must send a united message to the terrorists: Your violence cannot destroy our soul.”

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Microbiologist Naowarat Cheeptham visited a science class at Brock Middle School on Jan. 21.

Scientific discovery for kids DALE BASS STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Sometime today (Jan. 23), a group of high-school students will enter Room 367 at the sciences building on the Thompson Rivers University campus. Waiting for them will be microbiologist Naowarat Cheeptham — and several petri dishes. The goal is to see what has grown in those dishes used in an experiment the students began on Wednesday, Jan. 21, in their science class at Brock Middle School — one Cheeptham used to introduce

the Grade 8 students to the world of bacteria. It’s an area the TRU professor is well versed in, devoting much of her research to the quest to discover the minuscule organisms that control much of our lives. Teacher Tracey Epp brought Cheeptham to the class through Science World B.C.’s science and innovators in the schools in program, one of many experts her students have been exposed to during their learning. Cheeptham’s gift she shared with the students was as much her ability to explain the scientific world of bacteria in understandable terms to the

students as it was introducing them to things like bioluminescence and how bacteria can be used for many important products. She made some of those options available when answering a question about career options for someone who might study microbiology. “You could be a teacher, like Ms. Epp,” Cheeptham said, “or like me. You could go into medicine or be a veterinarian. You could work at a hospital. “But, you could also be a wine maker or a brew master or a cheese maker because they all use bacteria, too. It’s all microbiology.” 101- 929 LAVAL CRESCENT, KAMLOOPS

La Cocina de Mama serves tortilla soup at the Victoria Public Market. COLLEEN FRIESEN PHOTO

VANCOUVER ISLAND ONE BITE AT A TIME COLLEEN FRIESEN SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

This,” says Rose Lee with a grin, “is a bike tour where you won’t break a sweat.” Along with some fellow travel writers, I’ve arrived in Victoria. We’ve been outfitted with cool cruiser bikes from The Pedaler, along with the aforementioned promise of sweat-free city-riding. In retrospect, I wish Lee had taken us on a hilly marathon to help combat the calories we were about to take in, because this bike-propelled food tour was merely the start to an epic fourday Savour Vancouver Island culinary press trip. As promised, we cruised through Victoria’s flat streets, gorging on tasty treats like Zambri’s hand-crafted pizza, two (!) ice-cream tastings, Stir It Up Jamaican patties, delightful brews at Fernwood Coffee, beers at The Guild and — to top it all off — Bon Macarons.

After leaving our bikes and, just in case we were feeling a little peckish, we headed over to the Victoria Public Market. The market opened in September 2013, housed in the historical and very-renovated former Hudson’s Bay store. There’s a farmers’ market each Wednesday, but the rest of the week is for visiting the permanent food vendors like the delectable La Cocina de Mama. I slurped back tortilla soup that rivalled any I’ve had in Mexico and hoovered a plate of sinfully caramelized plantains before we went on for pastries, pie, Indian food, roasted pork and artisanal goat cheese. By the time we left the market, had drinks and appetizers at the Magnolia Hotel’s Catalano Restaurant and then bellied up to the platters of pork and beef at the busy North 48 Restaurant, I was drop-dead dizzy with caloric overload. By the middle of the second day, I made a call home to complain. My phone call did not go like I planned because I wanted

sympathy from my husband and he was clearly was not going to deliver. “Look,” I tried again, “this Vancouver Island culinary tour is just so exhausting. I can’t eat any more. I can’t have one more freshly-shucked oyster, tuck into any more Cold Comfort ice cream or eat another speck of Salt Spring Island goat cheese. He laughed. I tried again. “I’m too old for this. We’ve eaten our way through Victoria, Saltspring Island and Cowichan and it’s only just past noon. “I want to come home and flop on the couch. I don’t want to try one more cocktail with appetizers after spending a day grazing through food markets. “I don’t want another glass of Prosecco or a special martini . . . no matter how perfectly dry.” He chuckled annoyingly and said, “You know you love it.” I tried not to sound huffy when I said goodbye. Besides, it was time to tuck into the Merridale Ciderworks for the charcuterie platter and then go

out for dinner. The next morning, we arrived in Tofino and enjoyed a couple of food-free hours to walk on the surf-pounded beach. Thankfully, the fresh air helped create a little belly space so I could enjoy what would turn out to be one of the best dinners of my life. The Wolf in the Fog restaurant had a great vibe: woodsy, hip — but without pretence — and the food! Oh my! I’ve always loved Tofino, but if there was nothing else in the entire town but this restaurant, I’d make the trip. (Subsequent to this tour, I found out Wolf in the Fog was named the best new restaurant in Canada in enRoute’s annual top 10 list — a well-deserved honour.) Finally, after an entire long weekend of feasting in Tofino, Duncan, Cowichan Bay, Salt Spring Island and Victoria, I arrived home, knackered, thicker and quite determined I would make up for all those debauched hours by sipping only water and

nibbling on kale leaves. Instead, I tugged on my sweat pants, settled into the sofa beside the man who refused to understand my hard life and opened up the box of Rogers chocolates that had somehow snuck into my bag. Flipping open my laptop, I scrolled through the past four days of photos and smiled. I licked some chocolate off my fingers and adjusted my waistband to their largest big-mama setting. Kevin bit into another chocolate, “Honey. I’m sorry about your phone call the other day. Please tell me again how tough it all was?” Seriously. What I have to put up with would try the patience of a saint. I need another chocolate.
