THE KTW APP Get it now, for free, at the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store Six-year-old Hailey Hanf needed few layers of clothing in midNovember when visiting the playground at Arthur Stevenson elementary in Westsyde. The 11th month of 2016 was unusually mild, with almost half of the days hitting double digits on the thermometer. Alas, all good things come to an end as an Arctic cold front will hit Kamloops this weekend, resulting in below-freezing daily highs through next week. Bundle up — it’s only 109 days until the first day of spring.

CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Last month was the warmest November in a century and the second-warmest on record. “We were five degrees above seasonal norm,” Environment Canada meteorologist Ross Macdonald said. The near-record for the month, behind only 1899 (records start in 1895), was driven by the first 14 days of the month, all of which hit double-digit highs. In a normal November, temperatures reach the double-digits on five to six days in total. Rainfall, at about 19 millimetres, was near normal. Macdonald said so-called Pineapple

HOW MILD WAS NOVEMBER? The normal average high for the month is 2.1 C. November 2016 registered an average high of 7.5 C, just shy of the record average high of 7.9 C in 1899. Last month had 14 days with double-digit temperatures, including a high of 21.5 C on Nov. 8, which was warmer than 11 days in July and August. Express weather systems from the South Pacific lashed the Coast and Vancouver Island in early November, but brought only warm air to the Interior. A record was set Nov. 8 in Kamloops, when the mercury soared to 21.5 C, which was warmer than 11 days in July and August. But all that warm weather is about to end

as the calendar turns to December, with snow expected to fall and stick to the valley bottom in Kamloops today. “The story going forward, for the first week and into next week, we’ll see the first push of Arctic air through the province,” Macdonald said. By early to midweek, he said, “we’ll struggle to get to -4 C or -5 C.” On Wednesday, Environment Canada forecasts the daytime high to reach only -8 C. The winter of 2016/2017 follows last year’s strong El Nino phenomenon, which brought mild temperatures for a second year. Macdonald said the signals this year are less certain, but the long-term outlook is for near-normal winter temperatures.

Sun Rivers’ chief executive officer said the resort community’s golf course and restaurant will once again be listed for sale after a group of local investors earlier this week announced they were walking away from a deal near closing. “They notified us they won’t be completing the purchase,” Rick Siemens told KTW. “We’ve been negotiating that in good faith for quite some time.” In September, Ranchero Enterprises signed a letter of intent to purchase the golf course and Hoodoos Restaurant from Sun Rivers. This week, Ranchero investor and spokesman Bill Amy announced the deal had collapsed. “That is the only group we were negotiating with,” Siemens said. “Obviously, the golf course [and Hoodoos] is still for sale.” Siemens said he cannot get into specifics about why the deal fell through. “A deal is never done until it’s done,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot in my life.” Siemens also refused to talk money. Amy said his group had made a sizeable investment on work to the golf course — including new sand in greenside bunkers and construction of a six-hole, par-3 course — pending the deal’s closure. Siemens said he could not comment

ARE YOU INJURED BECAUSE OF SOMEONE ELSE? Most people associate “personal injury” with motor vehicle accidents. While many personal injuries do indeed stem from motor vehicle accidents, Personal Injury Law covers much more. It can also include physical and mental injury, wrongful death caused from slipping or tripping accidents, assault, sexual assault or defective products.

Ranchero Enterprises signed a letter of intent to purchase Sun Rivers golf course and Sun Rivers in September. That deal has since collapsed.

Village centre still a go Contrary to what was published in yesterday’s edition of KTW, Sun Rivers CEO Rick Siemens says the village centre project is still slated to proceed as planned. “The village centre, we have a developer looking at a commercial-residential building,” Siemens said. “This has been underway for quite a few months. The developer is hoping to be in the ground by the spring.” In 2015, Allan Askew purchased part of the village centre property with plans to build a grocery store and residential units. Askew’s family owns and operates Askew’s Foods in Salmon Arm, Sicamous and Armstrong. — Tim Petruk, KTW on whether Ranchero would be reimbursed for the work, but said Sun Rivers staff are dealing with the issue. As for those changes to the golf course, Siemens said staffers are looking into their viability. “We’re evaluating the work they were doing,”

he said. “We’ll decide on that soon.” Ranchero had other plans, including a potential re-branding of Hoodoos and the addition of an adjacent pub, as well as pickleball courts. Without getting into specifics, Siemens said those specific changes

are unlikely to happen without a new owner. “We’re re-evaluating all of it,” he said. A memo sent out to Sun Rivers homeowners on Thursday afternoon informing them of the deal’s collapse hinted at potential changes, stating: “Stay tuned over the coming weeks for Hoodoos and golfcourse updates.” The greater Sun Rivers development is owned by a group of investors led by Austrian Martin Zumtobel and governed by the Tk’emlups Indian Band. It is located on leasehold land, with a lease expiring in 2115. Sun Rivers Partners indicated in 2015 it was putting the entire resort on the market. It listed the golf course for sale separately earlier this year. Development of the entire Sun Rivers project began two decades ago. It has now sold about 800 of its planned 2,000 units.

REAL ESTATE

NOVEMBER RESIDENTIAL NUMBERS UP 10 PER CENT FROM LAST YEAR CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Another increase in both Kamloops’ real-estate sales and median prices continues to defy trends in Greater Vancouver. Kamloops & District Real Estate Association reported more than 200 residential sales

in November, up 10 per cent from the same month in 2015. That boosted the year-todate sales total to a 23 per cent increase. The median price of a singlefamily home within the city of Kamloops nudged higher to more than $417,000. That’s up from $405,000 in October,

although the number can fluctuate from month to month due to the relatively small sample size. B.C. Real Estate Association forecasts median prices in Metro Vancouver will fall by nearly nine per cent next year. It forecasts an increase in home sales.

Kamloops Seniors Village on Hugh Allan Drive in Aberdeen is part of the Retirement Concepts chain of care homes in B.C., Alberta and Quebec. Cedar Tree Investment Canada, a Canadian subsidiary of Anbang Insurance Group in China, wants to spend about $1 billion to buy a majority stake in the company.

While the federal government has yet to weigh in, the Chinese insurance company seeking to buy a majority share in the province’s biggest retirement-home chain has promised nothing will change if the plan is approved. The Hospital Employees’ Union (HEU) representing many of those workers, however, is calling on the province and Ottawa to reject the sale to an offshore investor while the health ministry says it is not concerned and does not believe patients will see a change in the level of care. The company that has made the bid — an estimated $1 billion, according to experts — to buy the majority stake in Retirement Concepts is Cedar Tree Investment Canada, a Canadian subsidiary of Anbang Insurance Group in China. The Globe and Mail has reported Cedar Tree was incorporated four months ago and has listed two directors with the same names and addresses as the financial company Anbang used to buy a controlling interest in the Bentall

Centre in Vancouver last year. Retirement Concepts owns 24 seniors-care facilities in B.C., Alberta and Quebec, including Kamloops Seniors Village. “Cedar Tree has assured patients, families and staff that it does not intend to make any changes to day-to-day operations,” Health Ministry Terry Lake said in a statement. “We expect this change to be seamless and that the patients residing in these facilities will continue to get the same quality of care.” The Investment Canada Act requires federal review of the proposed sale because it involves a non-Canadian entity trying to acquire control of a Canadian business with a value that exceeds $600 million. That means Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains will have to make a decision on letting the sale proceed. Of more than 130 assisted living and residential-care services companies in B.C., Retirement Concepts bills the most. In the 2015-2016 fiscal year, Victoria paid the company $86.5 million.

a Vancouver public-relations firm, Cedar Tree said “there will be no change to staffing plans, the quality of care provided to our residents, nor to our policies, procedures and other operating standards. “Retirement Concepts will continue to manage and operate the properties and there will be no change to the staff or senior leadership team at either the community or corporate level.“ HEU, however, is asking the two levels of government to use their regulatory powers to reject the sale. About 1,850 of its members work at Retirement Concepts sites in B.C. “Allowing this sale to proceed would represent a major loss of accountability and control over the provision of seniors’ care,” said Jennifer Whiteside, the union’s secretary-business manager. “And it would send a clear signal to global investors that seniors’ care and other health services in this province are for sale to the highest bidder. Unfettered foreign investment in our health-care system is the wrong direction for British Columbians.”

Union concerned with potential sale DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s only one answer the Health Employees’ Union wants to hear from Ottawa about the potential Anbang/ Retirement Concepts sale — a foreign company should not be able to buy into Canadian health care. Neil Monckton, an HEU communications officer, said the B.C. government has the power to refuse to issue a licence to run a facility like Kamloops Seniors Village in Kamloops, one of the Retirement Concepts properties. About 200 HEU employees work at the facility on Hugh

Allan Drive in Aberdeen. While Monckton does not know if the contract covering union members includes language on contracting out services, he said there are other ways to get rid of employees, including changes to hours and conditions of work or decreasing the number of care aides and replacing them with licensed practical nurses, who are represented by another union. The potential sale of the chain to the Chinese insurance company, estimated by many to be worth more than $1 billion, has to be reviewed at the federal level because it exceeds a $600-million threshold for foreign investment.

Kristy Anderson, director of media relations for the B.C. Ministry of Health, said once the review is done, it falls to the relevant health authority’s medical health officer to decide if a licence will be issued. If it is, Anderson said, “we expect the transition to be seamless and that the patients residing in these facilities will continue to receive the same quality of care.” The HEU, however, has heard concerns from its members their working hours and conditions could be affected. Anderson said regulations the ministry has in place are designed to protect patient care regardless of who owns the company.

Nails

Those regulations, Anderson said, give the medical officer of health the right to ask for an extensive list of information, including site plans, monthly revenues and expenditures, copy of the purchase agreement or lease, description of the program of care and proof of liability insurance as part of this review. “If the applicant is a corporation, the medical health officer can also request a list of the directors and officers of the corporation, and an identified individual who agrees to be available to respond to inquiries from the director of licensing or to the medical health officer within 24 hours of a request,” Anderson said.

THE HOT AND NOT OF THE WEEK Kamloops This Week looks at the stories of the week — the good, the bad and all in-between:

HOT: Pipeline politics as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau straddled the fence this week. He approved Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion, spurring outrage among many, denied Northern Gateway, spurring outrage in others, and gave the nod to Line 3 on the Prairies, eliciting many shoulder shrugs. The fight over Trans Mountain has just begin, however, as immediate protests and planned action (including a vigil at Sandman Centre on Sunday) demonstrate. Expect this project to be tied up in the courts for some time to come. NOT: Normal weather as November just checked in with the second-warmest average readings on record. There remains a fierce debate over how much human activity is contributing to climate change and a warming world, but a month like that which just passed (including a Nov. 8 high of 21.5 C that was hotter than 11 days in July and August) doesn’t provide much ammunition for the skeptics.

OUR

Dialing a bus would be nice

W

e can dial-apizza and diala-cab. Hell, we can even dial for

dope. What we need, though, is the ability to dial-a-bus for those who are perfectly healthy and not eligible to use HandyDart. Kamloops is a car and truck city. In fact, it could be the king of car and truck cities in B.C. It is not a transit-friendly burgh, nor should it be, considering the immense size of the Tournament Capital. Kamloops is huge — at 300 square kilometres, it is the fourthlargest city in the province. Only Abbotsford, Prince George and Surrey are larger. Kamloops is about three times the size of Vancouver, with about one-seventh the population. With neighbourhoods like Dallas and Brocklehurst and Aberdeen and Westsyde as far apart as some cities on the Lower Mainland, and with nowhere near the density or tax base of those communities, it stands to reason transit will always be a problem here. And it has been a problem since I moved to Kamloops in 2005. Not enough routes, poor scheduling, lame Sunday and late-night service — these and other complaints seem to have rotated year after year after year, even with additional hours and improvements to the system. This week, BC Transit officials were at Thompson Rivers University and at the two exchanges — downtown and on the North Shore — gather-

MUSINGS ing input from bus riders as the Crown corporation and city planners figure out what to do with 3,000 extra hours coming to the city’s transit fleet next fall. Three-thousand on its own is an impressive number. In baseball, it represents enough hits to get you to Cooperstown. In the world of transit, it isn’t a lot — 125 days of extra service divided by a whole bunch of buses and further divided by a number of routes. Obviously, the most-used routes — these usually go to the university — will be beefed up. But there are areas of the city, growing areas, where the nearest bus stop is a long way away. I just moved from upper Aberdeen, which had a bus stop 200 metres from my house, to Batchelor Heights, where the nearest stop is precisely 1.2 kilometres away — uphill and downhill both ways (seriously). For a young guy like my teenaged son, it’s not much of a problem, unless it gets snowy and cold, as it will this weekend. For those with health or mobility problems, that bus stop might as well be on the moon.

For them, however, there is HandyDart, a great service that delivers a small van/bus to your front door when you call. I see one of those vehicles two or three times a week as it picks up my neighbour in the morning. And, every time I pass a monstrous bus with few people inside, I wonder why the powers-thatbe cannot take that HandyDart template and extend to residents wishing to take the bus, but living nowhere near a stop. It is being done elsewhere. Yorkton, Sask., has its Dial-ABus program. You call and it sends a bus when and where you need it. St. Mary’s County in Maryland has a similar service, as do other communities in North America. Some use existing bus stops, others are more flexible. When I see a near-empty bus plodding along on its route, I cannot help but wonder whether a dial-a-bus option for lesserused routes and for developed neighbourhoods like mine wouldn’t be a cheaper alternative. A portion of my property taxes funds transit service, despite the fact I do not receive transit service. In announcing the consultation for the 3,000 extra hours coming to Kamloops, Transportation Minister Todd Stone said: “As the population in Kamloops continues to grow, our transit services must also expand and adapt.” Many of us are waiting — often many kilometres from the nearest bus stop. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

YOUR OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

CITY SICK LEAVE SHOULDN’T BE A PERK Editor: This is about the budget our city is now discussing. The one subject that irritates me as a taxpayer and citizen of Kamloops is sick leave. Two years ago, I was introduced to a city worker who had just retired. In our conversation, he stated he and his wife were going to

spend the winter in Mexico or Arizona. “I have over $5,000 that was paid out for sick leave that I never took,” he stated. Now, I must ask how people can get sick leave for not being sick. Sick leave should only be granted when a person is sick. That should be supported with a statement from a

registered nurse or doctor. No way should sick leave be saved as another perk or entitlement. How dare the city plan to raise taxes while giving union workers money for no reason. Ed Skretka Kamloops

THIS WAS A HOME BEFORE RECREATIONAL DRUGS Editor: A great teaching tool is an object lesson and one photo is often more meaningful than 1,000 words. Look at the attached photograph and try to envision the house that was once there. It was a gorgeous place, a house where a family lived and children played. The photo shows how it looked after it was on drugs. I picture a young person having trouble coping with life and facing peer pres-

sure to get involved with recreational drugs. Look in the mirror. You might only be

15 years old. Look at your long beautiful hair, encasing brown eyes and a smile that would stop

people on the street. You have your whole life in front of you. Instead of getting

ready to go to school with your friends, you find yourself early one morning looking at a place that scares you. You go inside to find you know of animals that live better than this. Maybe you had a fight with your parents or your mom is the caregiver and she’s given up. You can’t talk to her. Maybe there are alcohol-related problems at home and you think anything would be better

than living like this. There are others who will listen and care about you. Grandparents, an elder or the parent of a friend could be the ones to whom you confide. A long time ago, a wise man wrote these words: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” Make no mistake — such is the way of so-called recreational drugs.

I think not. “I am so tired of the politics surrounding these issues. It is not unlike someone leaving a relative out of an obituary. So petty. “I am in Mexico right now, give me a break. The people down here are far worse off than any aboriginal in Canada as a whole.” — posted by Fairminded “The sign is a real issue. “It embodies and symbolizes the whitewashing of indigenous history. If you can’t even get a sign right, how can you possibly get the real important stuff right? “So funny how the real history of this place has been forgotten by the last 150 years of racist, bigoted European governance.” — posted by T’Kemlups Territory

The organizer of a protest against the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion is hoping to spark a community conversation about the project now approved by the federal government. Mike McKenzie is spearheading a candlelight vigil in opposition to the expansion at Sandman Centre at 4 p.m., before Sunday’s Kamloops Blazers-Brandon Wheat Kings game. The line, which would twin Kinder Morgan’s existing pipeline from Alberta to Burnaby and triple the amount of oil flowing to the coast, was given federal approval on Tuesday. McKenzie, a former youth representative for the Secwepemc First Nation, said he is concerned about the project’s effects on the health of the Thompson rivers. The pipeline crosses the Thompson River near Fulton Field.

McKenzie thinks the project has gone under the radar in Kamloops, which has not seen the kind of organized marches and opposition taking place in the Lower Mainland. “Have we really talked about this as a community? Have we really been out as a community?” he asked. “Five thousand, 10,000 people went out in Vancouver. I don’t think we’re having the deep conversations we need to be having.” By holding the event in front of the arena on a Blazers’ game night, McKenzie hopes to get people thinking and talking about the project. It’s the second anti-Trans Mountain protest he has organized in the past few weeks. A protest last week drew about 50 people, McKenzie said. He has set up a Facebook page for the protest at Stop Kinder Morgan Vigil: Kamloops. As of yesterday afternoon, about 26 people had committed to attending the event.

Christmas isn’t always a merry time for people and, this year, four churches are acknowledging that reality. Three Blue Christmas services are planned this month, said Bruce Comrie, minister at Kamloops United Church. It’s a time to recognize loss, he said, a reality that could come from a death, a health condition, work issues, unemployment, relationship breakdowns or just basic stress. “Sometimes, people feel exasperated at this

time of year, with all the emphasis on family, traditions, happiness,” Comrie said. “This is a way of recognizing that they’re not alone in that feeling. It’s a way of validating it, acknowledging it. “If your inner feeling is different than what you’re expected to portray to the world, it can be difficult.” The services include some relevant scripture and other readings. Muted and calming music plays and candles can be lit, Comrie said, a simple act that for many participants is the most important moment in the 40-minute nondenominational service.

Kamloops This Week inadvertently missed the Ask Drake column from November 25. We regret any confusion this may have caused.

“It’s a way of honouring something or someone. It could even be the loss of a pet. It’s a symbol of hope, a reminder that we can move through the darkness, move from pain and grief to a greater light,” Comrie said. People are invited to stay afterward for refreshments and conversation. Most do, he said, even if they just sit and stare at the table of candles. “That is pretty impressive, seeing 40 or 50 candles all glowing,” Comrie said. The first service is on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at Kamloops United Church, Fourth Avenue and St. Paul Street downtown. The second service is on Monday, Dec. 19, at Hills of Peace Lutheran Church, 695 Robson Dr. in Sahali. The third service is on Thursday, Dec. 22, at the North Shore Community Centre, 730 Cottonwood Ave. on the North Shore. The final service is presented by Mt. Paul United and St. George’s Anglican churches and C&C Resources for Life. Each service starts at 7 p.m.

Clinical supervisor Sharon Todd and executive director Charlene Eden work at the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre, a recipient of funding through the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund.

ANDREA KLASSEN/KTW

Centre helps assault survivors heal JESSICA KLYMCHUK STAFF REPORTER jklymchuk@kamloopsthisweek.com

Charlene Eden calls them “our kiddos” — the children who use the colourful corner playroom at the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre to work through trauma. The “kiddos” are resilient, the executive director said, despite having witnessed or experienced sexual violence. The centre provides support services to women, men and youth who have suffered sexual assault, harassment or domestic abuse. Its clients are as young as three. Others are senior citizens. New toys, art supplies and instruments purchased by the centre this year and used during therapy sessions with children were purchased with funding from the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund. It received just over $10,000 from the Cheer Fund last year and will be a recipient again this year. That money allows the centre to buy much-needed supplies and pays for outreach programming. Co-ordinating with a variety of organizations means counsellors can reach survivors who are accessing other services, people who might otherwise never seek counselling. “There’s a ton of survivors that we’re not seeing and accessing,” Eden said. “It’s incredibly difficult to walk in our

door, so, if we can meet them somewhere else, the first time or the second time . . . then they get to put a face to us. But I think we see very few compared to the reality of the amount of survivors there are out there.” The centre’s core programming offers counselling services to survivors of sexual assault on a case-by-case basis, meeting them wherever they are on their path to healing and facilitating the journey from there. “It’s hard to explain, but there’s this different aura about people when they get to that place when you know they can talk about their story and they can sit and look at their story, but the story doesn’t own them anymore,” Eden said. “For me, that’s the piece — when they say to us, ‘I’m good, I don’t need to come back anymore,’ you know that’s on their terms.” The demand for counselling services at the centre outweighs its capacity, Eden said, so additional funding is needed to continue growing outreach efforts. Eden would like to see the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre develop more education and prevention programming, particularly with youth. With a better understanding of consent, healthy boundaries, self-esteem and tech safety — especially for kids growing up in the digital age — other pieces of the puzzle become easier to solve, she said.

“We are really working toward solidifying our role in the community with that because I think that’s where we can make the greatest difference,” Eden said. A portion of this year’s Cheer funding will also support the sexual-assault response team, reintroduced in 2016 after a 13-year absence. The centre relied on additional funding from the city to revive the program that sees on-call, trained volunteers offer support, information and advocacy to recent victims of sexual assault. “It’s not a pretty topic and it’s not a fun topic to talk about, but it’s an important one to talk about,” Eden said. “I think sometimes we have such an ugly picture of the actual violence — which is ugly — that we forget there’s a beautiful ending on the other side, which is the healing. “That is the beautiful part of the work we do and it’s the reason everyone who works here does the work they do.” The centre is one of five organizations supported by this year’s KTW Christmas Cheer Fund. The others are Sensational Soups, Y Women’s Emergency Shelter, New Life Community Kamloops and Family Tree Family Centre. The Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre is at 235 First Ave. downtown. It can be reached by phone at 250-372-0179.

The annual KTW Christmas Cheer Fund has begun. The fund helps five charities: Y Women’s Emergency Shelter, Family Tree Family Centre, Sensational Soups, Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre and New Life Community Kamloops.

Q: I understand that falling is the most common cause of injury in Senior’s. How can I prevent a fall? A: First, let’s learn some facts around falls... • One-third of people aged 65 and over typically fall once or more each year. • Almost half of the admissions to long-term care facilities are fallrelated. • Most falls occur in senior’s homes. • Women are 3 times more likely than men to be hospitalized for a fall. Q: How can I reduce the risk of a fall at home? • Falls usually happen due to loss of balance, side effects of medicine, impaired mobility or vision and environmental hazards. • Make sure stairs are well lit and free of clutter. • Remove all throw rugs or scatter mats and use a non-skid backing with flat edges. • Watch that your pets are not under foot. Place a bell on the collar so you know where they are. • Make sure there is a clear path from your bedroom to the bathroom. • Have a cordless phone near your bed. • Sit on the edge of your bed for a minute before getting up after a rest. • Keep your front entrance well lit - consider motion-sensitive lights. • Install grab bars by the toilet, bathtub, and shower. • Maintain an active and healthy lifestyle through exercise, good nutrition, regular physical checkups and ear and eye exams.

Murder prelim wraps up The Crown has closed its case at the preliminary inquiry of a 65-year-old Kamloops man charged with second-degree murder. The final witness in the preliminary inquiry of Gordon Camille took the stand on Tuesday. Camille was arrested and

charged after 49-year-old Dennis Adolph’s lifeless body was found in a suite at the 4 Seasons Motel in Valleyview on Jan. 26. The nature of the relationship between the two men has not been made public. Preliminary inquiries are hearings at which a judge decides whether there is enough

evidence for an accused person to stand trial. All evidence heard at preliminary inquiries is bound by a publication ban. Lawyers will return to court for argument on Dec. 14. Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame is expected to reserve her decision.

Pedestrian struck by vehicle A woman suffered serious injuries on Monday night after being struck in a Columbia Street crosswalk. Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said the 25-year-old

woman was crossing the thoroughfare in the 600-block when she was hit by a vehicle. She was taken to Royal Inland Hospital with serious but non-life threatening inju-

ries, Shelkie said. “The driver of the vehicle stayed on scene and is cooperating with police,” she said. The investigation is ongoing.

CounterAttack has begun Police CounterAttack roadblocks began this week and will continue through the Christmas season. “It doesn’t take much alcohol or many drugs to impair your driving,” Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said. “Just because you’ve only had a couple of drinks doesn’t mean you’re OK to drive. Shelkie said the program means extra officers on the road looking for impaired drivers for the next month.

Shelkie noted British Columbia’s drinking-driving laws are tough on impaired drivers. The vehicle can be immediately taken off the road and impounded for between three and 30 days. Costs related to the offences can be between $600 and $4,000. “And, a person who is found to be impaired while driving is subject to criminal charges,” Shelkie said. Police recommend planning ahead before imbibing.

That can include securing a designated driver, having money for a taxi, knowing when the buses are running or deciding to use a ride-service like Operation Red Nose, which drives customers home in their own vehicles in exchange for a donation to PacificSport. Red Nose runs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from Dec. 3 to Dec. 17. It will also operate on Dec. 26, Dec. 30 and Dec. 31. For a ride, call 250-372-5110.

All-party committee recommends proportional voting system, referendum JOAN BRYDEN

THE CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — A special all-party committee is recommending the Trudeau government design a new proportional voting system and hold a national referendum to gauge Canadian support. The long-awaited report of the electoral reform committee also recommends the government not proceed at this time with mandatory voting or online voting. In a dissenting report, however, the committee’s Liberal members — the party does not support a referendum — is essentially recommending Prime Minister Justin

Trudeau abandon his promise to change the system before the next election. The 392-page majority report is the product of a hard-won consensus among members of the committee, on which the four opposition parties held a majority. Whether the government will accept the recommendations, however, remains far from certain. Trudeau, who promised the 2015 federal election would be the last conducted under the so-called first-pastthe post system, has already suggested public enthusiasm for electoral reform has waned since his Liberals won power last fall. Democratic

Institutions Minister Maryam Monsef has repeatedly said she’s detected no consensus around any particular alternative and has warned the government won’t proceed without the broad support of Canadians. Monsef has conducted her own hearings and is about to launch a postcard campaign inviting all Canadians to take part in an online survey. Monsef has also said she doesn’t like the idea of a referendum, citing the expense and its potential divisiveness. Still, she’s said she’ll take the idea seriously if it’s recommended by the committee. The supplementary Liberal report said Canadians have not

been engaged in the issue and recommends “a period of comprehensive and effective citizen engagement’’ before recommending a specific voting system. “We believe that this engagement process cannot be effectively completed before 2019.” Unlike Monsef’s conclusion there is no consensus, the majority report acknowledges the “overwhelming majority’’ of testimony the committee heard from almost 200 electoral experts and thousands of Canadians was in favour of proportional representation. And it said most of those PR advocates favoured a mixedmember proportional system, in which MPs would be elected in

each riding just as they are currently, supplemented by additional regional MPs chosen from party lists and apportioned according to each party’s share of the vote. And in a nod to the time crunch facing the government if the voting system is to be changed in time for the next election in October 2019, the report says the design of the new voting system should be completed prior to the start of the referendum campaign. Chief electoral officer Marc Mayrand has said Elections Canada would need six months to prepare for a referendum and at least two years after to get any new voting system up and running.

But it occurs to us that rather than overwhelm kids on Christmas morning with a big pile of presents, we may all do better with fewer, more meaningful toys that engage, educate, and provide a real benefit or function in our children’s lives. Toys that require a little more in terms of dollars and parental involvement. But provide far better dividends in the end. Like the Teeter Popper. It gets kids active and keeps them moving.This colourful toy is popping with fun and is great for motor skills, balance, auditory and sensory development. Perfect for children ages 2 - 10. Or how about Tegu blocks that let children build and create with unique magnetic wooden blocks. They are not only functional but teach children the concepts of engineering and allow for lots of creativity. They are made in the Honduras of sustainable wood and are a fair trade product too.

Or the the fun science kits like Snap Circuits where kids can create hundreds of electrical projects that snap together with ease. And there are lots of games that inspire electronic-free gaming and great family time. Games like Qwirkle, fun for all ages and great for developing strategic play. Toys not typically found in holiday catalogs or retail chain stores. Toys invented by passionate entrepreneurs who want to create a better playing experience for children. but who often have limited marketing budgets to promote their wonderful products. Don’t get us wrong - we sell “popular” toys, too. But we won’t compete with big box stores or shopping websites to see who can offer the steepest discounts for the same “hot toys.” Because toy discounts don’t save you money if those toys are no longer being played with on December 26th. So let us help you find a toy that can make a positive impact on your child. Sure, we may not have countless aisles of options. But that’s okay. When you’re the smallest toy store in the area, you only have room to carry the best.

“Learn, Play, Inspire.”

No obligation to protect aboriginal identity during ’60s Scoop, feds say The evidence is overwhemling “that not once did the federal

COLIN PERKEL

THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — The federal government had no legal obligation to prevent on-reserve children from losing their aboriginal identities after placement in nonindigenous homes during the so-called ’60s Scoop, an Ontario court heard yesterday. In urging a class action to be thrown out, a government lawyer also argued the notion of aboriginal culture or identity is too fuzzy to render such an obligation — had it existed — legally enforceable. The 2009 lawsuit seeks $1.3 billion on behalf of about 16,000 indigenous children in Ontario who claim they were harmed by being placed in nonaboriginal homes from 1965 to 1984 under terms of a federal-pro-

vincial agreement. While the arguments are legally complex, one key element of the plaintiff’s claim is that the government never consulted Indian bands about the child-welfare program as required by the 1965 agreement — a point seized on by Ontario Superior Court Justice Edward Belobaba. The agreement, Belobaba said, appeared to have “no ambiguity” as to the consultation requirement. “The evidence is overwhelming that not once did the federal government consult with any Indian band,’’

Belobaba said. “They had to consult with Indian bands and they didn’t.” “Would life have been different had they been consulted?’’ asked government lawyer Owen Young. Belobaba suggested consultations would have afforded aboriginal leaders an opportunity to provide input into the program that might have mitigated the harm of placing the children outside their communities. The government does admit the at-risk children may well have suffered harm from loss of their indigenous identities.

However, it insists it is not liable because it had no “duty of care’’ toward them — an assertion Belobaba said was clearly in dispute given the consultation requirement. Young urged the justice to consider the agreement in the context of the time it was signed, arguing legal and social norms were evolving and the consequences of “transracial’’ adoptions were not well-understood. In addition, the federal government was stymied by confidentiality provisions that cloaked adoptions, preventing disclosure of the identities of a child’s biological parents, Young said. “You must throw yourself back to 1965 and interpret it,’’ Young said. “That interpretive exercise is affected by the standard of care of the time.”

The lead plaintiff, Marcia Brown Martel, said it was clear Canada knew about the anger and frustration about what was happening to the children after they placed with non-indigenous families. Brown Martel, 53, a member of the Temagami First Nation near Kirkland Lake, Ont., was adopted by a non-aboriginal couple in 1972 at age nine. She later discovered the Canadian government had declared her original identity dead. “Canada took no steps to assist the adopted child postadoption,’’ Brown Martel said in her court filings. Young also suggested there were questions about whether the court even has jurisdiction to decide the case. The hearing, which began in August, continues today.

INVESTIGATION AFTER SECOND DEADLY WHALE ENTANGLEMENT IN B.C. WATERS VANCOUVER — A necropsy has been completed on the latest humpback whale to be killed from being trapped underwater by fish-farm equipment off the British Columbia coast. Results are not yet available, but Fisheries and Oceans Canada is investigating after a juvenile whale was entangled between the inner and outer containment nets of the Grieg Seafood facility in Nootka Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. A release from the Fisheries Department said the Nov. 25 incident marks the 21st whale entanglement this year, up from 10 to 15 recorded in a typical year. It was also the second fatal entanglement in November, after a juvenile whale died in gear left at an unused Marine Harvest fish farm near Bella Bella on the central coast. A third humpback was badly cut but survived in September, when fisheries experts, First Nations and workers at the fish farm struggled for more than six hours to free the exhausted, ropeentwined whale. The Fisheries Department said prior to the November deaths, entanglements at fish farms were extremely rare and mostly involved gear from gillnet fishing boats or shellfish trap lines. — The Canadian Press

KMBA LANDS WESTERN CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS ADAM WILLIAMS

STAFF REPORTER

adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

It will be one of the biggest minor baseball events in Western Canadian history. The Kamloops Minor Baseball Association (KMBA) was announced as the host of the 2017 Western Canada Baseball Association Championships this week, an event that will bring 25 teams and nearly 500 athletes to the Tournament Capital in August. For the first time in Western Canada, five championships — 18-and-under (midget) AA boys’, 15U (bantam) AAA boys’, 15U AA

boys’, 14U girls’ and 13U (peewee) AA boys’ — will be held on a single site: McArthur Island. “It’s pretty exciting for KMBA,” said president Chris Balison. “They are quite prestigious events. Not only have we been entrusted by Baseball BC, but all of the western provinces, to host it on a single site. That’s going to be a first.” The championship weekend

will run from Aug. 17 to Aug. 20. Along with hosting, Kamloops will have three teams — the midget AA, bantam AAA and peewee AA boys — play in their respective championships. Each division will include Kamloops, as well as provincial representatives from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. “That’s going to be something quite special for our members and our players, to be able to host it and play in it,” Balison continued. “We’ve had championships roll through town before, but we’ve never had anything on this scale. In my talking with base-

ball authorities across Western Canada, it’s certainly a first to have this many championships held on a single facility over a single weekend.” The Western Canadian championships are just another step in Kamloops’ and KMBA’s progression as a baseball tournament Mecca. After hosting the provincial championships for Baseball BC last year, KMBA was asked to consider becoming home to Westerns. And Balison hopes the Tournament Capital can take things to yet another level within the next four to five years. “KMBA really sees this as a stepping stone to our even-

tual goal of hosting a single-site youth national championship for Baseball Canada,” he said. “We’ll be using this as a bit of a showcase, for Kamloops and our association, to be able to hold championships on a single site of this scale.” With the tournaments coming to town in August, they will provide a boost to the sports tourism economy, which has typically wound down for the summer by that time of year. Balison said both Tourism Kamloops and the KMBA’s hotel partners have expressed excitement for the expected visitor influx.

Ingram stands on head to save Blazers SIDEROFF, GROPP USED SEATTLE-KAMLOOPS GAME TO MAKE STATEMENTS MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Conversation during the postgame media scrum could easily have focused on an atrocious loss, on giving up 50-plus shots on home ice, on resembling a horrible hockey team for at least 40 minutes at Sandman Centre on Wednesday night. Instead, Kamloops Blazers’ head coach Don Hay held court with reporters for a touch more than one minute and needed only one sentence to wrap up the game — a 4-3 overtime win over the Seattle Thunderbirds. “I thought that was one of the best goaltending efforts I’ve seen in the league since I’ve been here,” said Hay, who first started coaching in the WHL in the mid 1980s. “I’ve been involved in a lot of games. Connor [Ingram] was outstanding right from the start.” One day after finding out he will be heading to Blainville, Que., for Team Canada’s selection camp ahead of the World Junior Hockey Championship, Ingram stopped 52 shots to carry his team to victory. “That means a lot coming from a guy like that,” Ingram said of the high praise from his head coach. “It’s exciting, but the guys in front of me put up four tonight.” Two of those four came from Deven Sideroff, who scored short-handed at 19:07 of the second period and notched the game-winning goal in overtime, a power-play marker at 1:03 of the extra frame.

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

Connor Ingram made 52 saves in a goaltending performance Kamloops Blazers’ head coach Don Hay called one of the best he’s ever seen on Wednesday at Sandman Centre.

Sideroff was snubbed by Hockey Canada on Tuesday, left off the selection-camp list and smacked with the realization his dreams of donning the Maple Leaf at the world juniors in Toronto and Montreal later this winter are likely fading away. “I’d say it’s disappointing for myself,” said Sideroff, who has 14 goals and 27 points in 26 games this season. “I did everything I could to make an impression for that team and got left off the list. All I’m going to do is use it as motivation and keep going.”

Seattle outshot Kamloops 18-5 in the first period, 20-4 in the second and 17-9 in the third. No fancy stats are needed to determine which team — or which goalie — was better on Wednesday. “Sometimes you run into a hot goalie like that,” said T-Birds’ forward Ryan Gropp, a Kamloops product. “He stood on his head tonight.” Gropp managed to solve Ingram with a lazer-beam wrist shot on the power play five minutes into the third period, a goal that tied the game and forced OT.

He also had an assist on Matthew Barzal’s second goal of the season at 7:50 of the second period. Both Barzal, a 19-year-old New York Islanders’ draft pick, and Gropp, a 20-year-old New York Rangers’ draft pick, were sent back to Seattle from their respective NHL clubs earlier this season. Gropp might have expected to be reassigned to the Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, but was instead returned to the T-Birds on Oct. 11. “My head was kind of spin-

ning,” Gropp said. “I knew I had a big opportunity to come back here and we have a pretty good team again this year. “I need to round out my game, become more of a 200-foot player, an all-around player. I think that’s what New York wanted from me.” Gropp, who has six goals and 16 points in 19 games since returning to the WHL, was told by the Rangers it made more sense for him to play major-junior hockey for now. “For me, it was about making sure I was playing in all situations, as opposed to not playing some nights or playing a limited role, making sure I’m getting the reps and making sure I can round out my game, dominate and make a statement again,” Gropp said. Barzal, who was returned to the T-Birds on Nov. 9, has 13 points, including two goals, in nine games with Seattle. Rudolfs Balcers and Spencer Bast also scored for the Blazers on Wednesday in what was Kamloops forward Matt Revel’s 300th WHL game. Ethan Bear had a goal for Seattle in support of netminder Matt Berlin, who made 17 saves in a losing effort. Kamloops (15-12-1-0) is next in action tomorrow, when the Vancouver Giants come to town on Teddy Bear Toss night. Game time is 7 p.m. at Sandman Centre. The Blazers are second in the B.C. Division, nine points back of the Prince George Cougars and one point ahead of the Kelowna Rockets and Victoria Royals.

Kamloops Storm fans may get a little déjà vu tonight. In a throwback to the 20142015 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season, the Storm are expected to have a pair of 20-year-olds in the lineup when they take on the Revelstoke Grizzlies at Memorial Arena — forward Mitch Friesen and goaltender Jason Sandhu. Puck drop is slated for 7:35 p.m. Friesen has yet to play this season, but is returning to the Storm for the drive to the postseason. Sandhu, meanwhile, was brought back to Kamloops earlier this week, traded from the Nelson Leafs for future considerations. “We never got rid of him because we didn’t like him,” head coach Ed Patterson said of Sundhu, who is expected to get the bulk of the starts in the

short-term. “He’s great — he’s one of the funniest guys I’ve ever worked with in hockey. “When he left us before, it was because he didn’t compete the way we wanted to see him compete. I know he has grown and matured and I’ve learned how to handle goalies a little bit better — I’m not such a goalie killer. “Hopefully, the two of those in combination, we’ll have good success for both Jason and the team.” Both Sandhu and Friesen were with Kamloops in 20142015, the last time the club reached the KIJHL final. Sandhu was traded midseason to the Columbia Valley Rockies, but Friesen was with the Storm to the bitter end, leading the team in playoff goals (14) and points (22) as it fell in a six-game championship series to the Kimberley Dynamiters. He has been a proven producer for the junior B club, with 81 points in 75 regular-season games over three seasons.

Sandhu, meanwhile, has a lifetime 3.32 goals-against average and an .888 save percentage to go with an 18-18 record in the KIJHL. Against the Grizzlies this weekend, Patterson said he is hoping to see his team play instinctually. Kamloops has been trending upwards of late, with a 5-3-0-2 record in its last 10 games. The Storm are 8-4-1-0 at Memorial Arena and have played to two wins and a loss against Revelstoke this season. “I guess the No. 1 thing I’d like to see is that they’re actually learning to think on the fly, where they’re playing a structured game, but they’re reacting to the structure on instinct, not robotically,” the coach said. “That’s the No. 1 thing at our level. You can always skate, shoot or whatever, but they don’t necessarily always have the best thinking power under pressure and speed. I think our group has done a very good job of learning to do that so far this year.”

First Toronto FC coach predicted club’s success ‘WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A VERY, VERY GOOD TEAM, RIGHT FROM THE WORD GO,’ JOHNSTON SAID IN 2006 NEIL DAVIDSON

THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Mo Johnston believed in Toronto FC from the get-go, holding out high hopes before the MLS expansion franchise ever kicked a ball. “We’re going to have a very, very good team, right from the word go,’’ Johnston, Toronto’s first head coach, told a 2006 news conference. “[Real] Salt Lake City and Chivas, yes, were very poor in their first year. It’s not going to happen here.’’ Chivas USA went 4-22-6 in its first year in 2005, while Real Salt Lake was only slightly better at 5-22-5. Sadly, Toronto went 6-17-7 in its first year and, while there were successes, there was more pain to come. It took TFC five seasons to register 10 road wins. Johnston stepped down as coach after the 2007 season, handing the reins to John Carver. Johnston served as director of soccer until he, along

with coach Predrag (Preki) Radosavljevic, was fired in September 2010. Johnston may have been off on his timing on the team’s success, but he got the ball rolling. And the former Scottish international hasn’t forgotten his old team, which has won its way to the MLS Cup final Dec. 10 against the Seattle Sounders. “I wish TFC all the very best in the final,’’ Johnston said by email yesterday while declining an interview request. Johnston left the club six years ago with a comment that could still prove to come true. “I believe these supporters and this club will be the driving force in the growth of soccer in Canada,” he said in a parting statement. “The establishment of this club will prove to be the turning point in the development of this sport.’’ Under Carver and Johnston, Toronto rebounded for a 9-138 record in 2008 and 10-11-9 in 2009, with

Carver giving way to Chris Cummins. The 39 points collected in 2009 stood as a franchise record until 2014’s 41 (Toronto had 53 points this season). The team was 7-10-7 in 2010 when Johnston and Preki were canned. While the expansion team struggled in

Season 1, Johnston was a gregarious ambassador happy to sell the team off the pitch. Toronto FC opened its debut season with 14,000 season tickets sold, which led the league — surpassing even the Los Angeles Galaxy, the soon-to-be future home of former England captain

David Beckham. “Without doubt, there’s more buzz and anticipation with this team than any other in our history,’’ commissioner Don Garber said prior to the 2007 season kickoff. The team has 18,700 season ticket-holders this season, with the hope of exceeding

the Buffalo News. Gronkowski sat out practice Wednesday with what listed as a back injury. He was absent from practice again yesterday. The injury is believed to have occurred during the Patriots’ loss to the Seahawks on Nov. 13, in which Gronkowski said he received a hit from safety Earl Thomas.

The person spoke yesterday on condition of anonymity because the surgery has not yet been announced by the team. The surgery was first reported by

20,000 next year. Almost 10 years on, Garber was at BMO Field to watch Wednesday’s finale of the Toronto-Montreal Eastern Conference final. Asked about how long it found TFC to find success on the field, he reflected on his 17 years at the

ave Eagles looked as if he was ready to invade Westwold. You know it’s go time when KTW’s veteran photographer straps on his trusty army vest packed with camera gear, all the bells and whistles one needs to shoot photos. We hopped in his vehicle and set course for Brock middle school, where a gym full of insanity was waiting, tension high as city elementary school volleyball titles were on the line. Our focus turned to Court 1, on which the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Dolphins were squaring off against the Beattie Bearcats in the tier 2 girls’ championship final. Beattie’s student body is filled with former Stuart Wood pupils who were displaced when the downtown school shuttered earlier this year after operating since 1907. The Bearcats were wearing their old Stuart Wood jerseys on Tuesday night. “We’re a new school, we just came together, we’re wearing old jerseys and we don’t have kneepads, but we’re just out there with heart — and that’s pretty cool,” said Beth Morgan, who helps coach the Beattie girls. Shrieking parents and supportive siblings were among those populating bleachers inside the pressure-packed gymnasium, looking on as the see-saw first set played out in front of them. “Let’s go, Dolphins! Let’s go, Dolphins!” was the chant, as Angela Falco gave OLPH fans something to cheer about with a well-placed bump to make the score 3-3. Selyn Herbert answered for Beattie minutes later, levelling the score at 8-8 with a pinpoint bump of her own. Commando Eagles was in the zone, torquing and twisting to capture moments that can be seen online at kamloopsthisweek.com. The Dolphins looked to be pulling away when Emma-Lea Bliss scored with a serving ace, giving OLPH a 17-14 lead. The first to 25 would win the first set in the best-of-three contest. Beattie was not in the quitting mood. Kyla Liebe’s underhand serve landed in bounds on the Dolphins’ side. OLPH’s lead was down to one, the score 21-20. That’s when the rally of the match occurred, the ball going back and forth over the net, with both teams opting not to use their allotted three hits, instead playing hot potato, wait-

ing for the other team to falter. Moms and dads were on their feet. Teachers could barely watch. Bodies were flying. Beattie blinked first. OLPH went on to win the set. Falco described that point: “Awesome. Nervous. Scary. During that long rally, when we scored the point, it was really cool. You feel like you’re supported.” The Dolphins, buoyed by strong efforts from Kayla Hermiston, Macenzie Marsico and Daniella Viventi, poured it on in the second set, with the championship in their sights. Taylor Siebert, Avani Sharma and Annie Druskee used their skill to briefly stem the Dolphins’ tide, but the looks on the Bearcats’ faces during a timeout, with OLPH up 23-16, told the story. Tears were flowing after the final whistle sounded, signalling OLPH’s victory.

There were Bearcats who needed consoling. “My emotion comes from just watching them at the end being sad, when they’ve actually accomplished so much,” Morgan said. “They came second in the city. That’s a huge accomplishment.” The party was on for OLPH, as plans for a Dairy Queen visit seemed to be materializing. “It’s just phenomenal,” said Carol McGill, co-coach of the Dolphins. “We’ve had a great season. I just told the girls to focus and don’t do anything fancy. They did it.” Soon enough, the Bearcats were smiling again. “I was feeling really sad, but I just realized we’ve done really well, way better than we did last year,” Liebe said. “That’s a big improvement for us, especially since the move. “It’s been tough just getting used to our new surroundings. It doesn’t matter that we didn’t win. We got second in the whole city and that’s just really amazing.”

The boys

On Court 2, Lloyd George topped Kamloops Christian school to claim the tier 2 boys’ title on Tuesday. There were more elementary volleyball finals played yesterday after KTW’s press deadline. Results will be posted online at kamloopsthisweek.com when made available.

Obituaries & In Memoriam Mario Douglas Ficarini

Kirkpatrick,

George Coleridge Cox

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mario Douglas Ficarini of Kamloops, BC on November 23rd, at 47 years of age. He is survived by his loving parents Carlo and Dorothy Ficarini and his son Michael Whaley of Kamloops. Mario is also survived by his brothers Frank Ficarini and Fred Ficarini and sister Lillianna (Mike) Mathieson, his nephews Brandon and Carlo, nieces Kaitlyn, Jade, Sierra and Adrianna, as well as numbers of aunts, uncles and cousins. Mario was predeceased by his sister Carla in 1977 and his paternal and maternal grandparents.

John Westly “Jack” John Westly (Jack) Kirkpatrick passed away at the Ashcroft Long Term Care Home on 18 November 2016 at the age of 95. Jack was born in Ashcroft, BC on 25 March 1921. His father was Thomas Gillam Kirkpatrick who had the distinction of holding Claim number One at Highland Valley. His mother was Rita Evans, daughter of Oliver Evans, one of the founding fathers of Ashcroft. Jack spent his early years in Ashcroft and Spences Bridge. Jack joined the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps at the start of WWII, trained in Victoria, BC and Debert NS and shipped overseas where he trained in England. He landed at Juno Beach in Normandy on D-Day and saw service in France, Germany, Belgium and Holland. He received the 1939-45 Star, France and Germany Medal, Defence Medal, Canadian Volunteer Service Medal, and the War Medal. In 2015 he was appointed Knight of the French National Order of the Legion of Honour. On demobilization and return to Canada at the end of the War, as an independent businessman, Jack was CPR transfer agent, owned a car dealership and worked at the Cache Creek highway scales. He owned Kirkpatrick’s General Store (later Macleod’s). Following the sale of the store, he developed the Pimainus Lakes Fishing Resort, which he owned for 50 years. On retirement in 1990, Jack and Reta, with their faithful dog Koko, drove across Canada. Jack and Reta travelled extensively on cruises and tours. Following Reta’s death, Jack met Olive Horbulyk in France with the Canadian delegation at the 50th Anniversary of D-Day in Normandy. For two decades Jack and Olive travelled in Canada and abroad in loving companionship. During his working years he was an active member of the community serving as Alderman in Ashcroft. He was a founding member of the Ashcroft Legion and the Ashcroft and District Lions Club. He was fortunate to be placed in the Ashcroft Long Term Care in early 2013 where he received outstanding care. He was predeceased by his wife Reta Maclean in 1994. He is survived by his daughter Jacklin (John Desrosiers), sons Maynard (Brock), Garry (Ida), and Robert (Jackie) as well by 5 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. The family would like express their gratitude to the nurses, care aides and staff of Jackson House for their excellent support for all aspects of his physical care and emotional well-being in his last years. Thompson Valley Funeral is entrusted with the arrangements. At his request no Funeral Service will be held. A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held in March, 2017 in Ashcroft Online condolences may be made at www.tvfh.ca Thompson Valley Funeral Home Ltd.

Mario was born in Creston, BC, on August 3, 1969. Shortly after his birth, his family moved to Kamloops where he has resided for the majority of his life. Mario attended school at George Hillard, Happyvale and North Kamloops.

The Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival has released its first headliner act — Booker T. Jones. The festival will celebrate 25 years next summer.

Mamma Mia! tops last year’s Mary Poppins production DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

icket sales for Mamma Mia! had set a new record for Western Canada Theatre before the holiday production opened on Nov. 24. Lori Marchand, executive director of Western Canada Theatre, said eveningperformance tickets were a hot item, leading to the record-setting sales that eclipsed last year’s holiday presentation of Mary Poppins. Mamma Mia! is garnering rave reviews, with attendees even heralding the production in letters to KTW. All evening performances have been sold out for the play that continues to Tuesday, Dec. 6. The last chance to see the production is tomorrow at the 2 p.m. matinee, for which 250 pay-what-you-can tick-

ets will be available at the doors of Sagebrush Theatre on a first-come, first-served basis. The musical, packed with hits from Swedish pop group ABBA, tells the story of Sophie Sheridan, played by Katie Kerr, who is about to get married. She finds her mother’s diary and, upon reading it, discovers one of three men could be her father — Sam (played by Kevin Aichele), Harry (Leon Willey) or Bill (Mark Harapiak). Sophie invites the three of them to her wedding on the Greek island of Kalokairi and in the Villa Donna, owned and operated by Sophie’s mother, Donna (Cailin Stadnyk). Confusion and mayhem — along with plenty of music — ensues as Donna deals with Sophie’s decision, the bride tries to determine who dad really is and groom Sky simply

tries to figure out what’s going on. The show is a co-production with Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton, where it will be performed next spring. WCT veterans in the cast include Stadnyk, who played the title role in Mary Poppins last year, and Leon Willey as Bert, Mary’s chimney sweep friend. Director Ron Ulrich helmed WCT’s 2011 presentation of Tuesdays with Morrie and musician Kris Ruston has performed often with WCT, most recently last year in A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline. Others who have been on stage with WCT before include Michelle Bardach in Children of God, Janet Gigliotti and Alana Hibbert in Suessical, Colin Sheen in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Steve Thomas as

music director in Closer Than Ever. Bardach is part of the ensemble, Gigliotti is Donna’s friend Rose Mulligan and Sheen is Sky. Assistant director Andrew Cooper has also been involved with WCT in the past as a director and actor in the annual High Wire Festival. Ulrich has been enamoured with the play for years. In notes on the production, he said he has wanted to direct it for 17 years after managing to get a ticket to the production in London, thanks to a cancellation. He asked the producer for the rights to direct the play and learned he would have about a 15-year wait for his turn. Mary Poppins, a co-production with Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon, was the previous bestseller in WCT’s four decades of theatre.

Booker T. Jones to perform in Salmon Arm The people behind the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival are signing acts already as they prepare to mark its 25th anniversary — and the first act announced is Saturday night’s headliner, Booker T. Jones. The former frontman for Booker T and the M.G.’s will take his audience through the Stax hits and other moments in soul, blues and R&B, backed by a 10-piece band. Jones is considered one of the architects of the Memphis sound dating back to the 1960s. Also announced as the festival organizers continue signing what will be a 40-act bill are blues pianist/ singer Kenny Wayne, who will share

the stage with the Rev. Robert Jones. Claire Lynch, who has been named female vocalist of the year three times by the International Bluegrass Association is also booked, as are Jeffrey Foucault and Dylan Menzies. Foucault, a singer/songwriter from Wisconsin, focuses on American country, blues, rock and folk while Menzies, who comes from Prince Edward Island, has been praised by CBC as the next big voice in Canadian music. Festival members can buy up to four early-bird tickets now. Membership is $15 and tickets are on sale now. More information is online at rootsandblues.ca.

Rob Medves memorial concert at Cjs in February Tickets are on sale now for a Feb. 18 concert commemorating Rob Medves, longtime general manager at Cjs Night Club. Headlining will be the Chris Buck Band, a group of musicians who were Medves’ friends, along with The Shiny, a Vancouverbased band. Other friends are working behind the scenes to pull the event

together and raise enough money to fulfil the pledge they’ve made that 100 per cent of the proceeds from the $30 individual or $100 for a group of four ticket sales will go to the local chapter of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. No Limits Fitness has committed to raising the money to cover the cost of the two bands, which have offered to

just charge for expenses to perform. The club has donated toward that goal and members there are also fundraising. Medves will be remembered throughout the show with a powerpoint presentation and some moments when friends and family take the microphone to share stories. Tickets can be bought at Cjs, 130 Fifth Ave.

Popularity of vinyl is killing it T he current craze over vinyl records can be credited to those who never gave up on it — the punk, electronic and hip-hop scene. Punk bands never stopped putting out seven-inch singles, from the 1970s all the way up to present day. Punk bands sold singles while touring throughout the 1990s with the CD boom and into the 2000s with digital music becoming popular. Electronic and hip-hop artists were constantly releasing 12-inch singles and remixes from the 1980s into the modern day, with limited-run promos being traded through DJ circles and DJs mixing and spinning records at raves and dance clubs. Independent musicians championed the vinyl record — they started the current interest — but are now being excluded from participating. When vinyl regained its popularity, with events like April’s Record Store Day, the independent record store was the place to go and independent labels and musicians

EDIT gained the most out of it. They were the only ones producing vinyl in any volume. Major labels had all but given up on vinyl and were all into CD releases and the expanding digital platforms like iPods. But there’s money to be made — so vinyl became mainstream. Major labels have given a huge focus to vinyl releases in the past five years, with most catering to the collector. Coloured vinyl, special editions and limited-print runs sell at premium prices. You’ll often see a new record, major label or not, selling for about $35, sometimes even more for special releases and limited-

issue runs. Most of the time vinyl factories press classic rock and pop bands like The Beatles, The Grateful Dead or The Rolling Stones. That means there’s less time for smaller bands and labels. The popularity of vinyl is killing vinyl. Last year, the critically acclaimed Lethbridge-based label Mammoth Cave Records closed specifically due to this. As a vinyl-only label and as a label that took a stand by refusing to release music digitally, they catered to the music fan that didn’t want music digitally perfect. They couldn’t get their meagre run of records to the presses for a timely release and often found themselves waiting several months to get records pressed because major labels were using their money and influence to press records already released, albeit in a non-vinyl, non-special edition form. Bands without a record label find themselves with the same challenge. Vinyl-pressing plants are backed up with major label issues

and they are waiting several months to get records pressed. Then, when their records are pressed, they are finding the material is already out of date and fans are uninterested. It’s little wonder many smaller labels and independent bands are turning to cassette tapes. The quality of a major label vinyl release can be suspect as well. Many vinyl releases are just duplicates of existing releases on CD. No remastering is done or changes made to the recording — it’s simply put out on vinyl and sold for two to three times what a CD or digital release would cost. It’s fine if there’s money to be made. But sooner or later, the money bubble is going to burst and, when it does, it’ll be music fans, not collectors, still there to enjoy the music.

EXPLORING MEXICO’S YUCATAN PENINSULA MARGARET DEEFHOLTS SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

I

’m sitting with friends at an open-air restaurant, sipping coffee and listening to people chatting in Spanish at neighbouring tables. Pots of bright yellow marigolds, heads nodding in the breeze, fringe the patio and the slant of sun across the stone-flagged courtyard lends a sense of leisure, warmth and relaxation. It is my first day in Campeche, Mexico and I’m savouring the unhurried hours.

Campeche’s historic old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is contained within an octagonal border of white-washed walls with gates at the four points of the compass. Were it not for the presence of traffic nosing past rows of tightly parked cars, it would be easy to imagine I am back in the 17th century walking along these narrow lanes, the sunlight throwing octagonal shadows across the walls of Spanish-style houses painted vivid blue, red, green and yellow, and where the clop of horse hooves rings out against the cobbled streets. Yet, back then, all was not quite so tranquil. The Spanish, having subdued the indigenous Mayan population, were complacent in their enjoyment of the good life — lush

surroundings, fertile land, balmy weather. They were to be shaken out of their easygoing lifestyle as marauding pirates swept across the town, pillaging, raping and killing. Alarmed, the Spanish settlers turned Campeche into a fortified city with batteryequipped forts, two of which are open to visitors. We explore one of them: the Fort of San Miguel where cannons along the battlement overlook the sea. The rooms in the fort that housed soldiers and army officers, now offer a display of Mayan artifacts — mainly sculptures of Mayan men and women, with their squat physiques and stubby limbs. Some are squinteyed, a much prized mark of comeliness. Their descendents,

Campeche’s Spanish heritage is on display in Casa No. 6, a Moorish-style house situated by the town square. It offers glimpses into the lifestyle of a well-to-do family in the early part of the 20th century. A passageway with slate tile flooring, marble columns and stained-glass arches encircles an open patio and doors leading off take us to bedrooms,

living rooms, a spacious dining room and kitchen. We peer at old photographs, water-colour paintings, period furniture and elaborate china vases. An evening gown with a flounced skirt is displayed in the master bedroom; wearing this in torrid 38 C temperatures in summer must have been an ordeal. We drop by the town’s zocalo (town square) — a pleasant green space with shady trees sheltering wrought-iron benches. There aren’t many people about: a couple on a bench

There isn’t a single foreign tourist in sight. Later that night, the zocalo is livelier. Local families have gathered to watch a series of dramatic images and music depicting the essence of Campeche — its history, its celebrations and its traditions — projected across the facade of an adjacent building. Larger-than-life scenes and characters dance across the screen that stretches across an entire block. I am held spellbound until the last

I join friends on a shopping trip to the local meat and produce market, a far cry from our sanitized Canadian supermarkets where meat is packaged in Saran wrap and vegetables are tidily stacked in bins. Here carcasses of de-feathered, pimplyskinned chickens and joints of beef hang from skewers; several varieties of fish, slashed and bloody, lie on slabs and raw prawns the size of my fist sit in tubs. Fruit stalls are stacked with ripe mangoes, papayas and cantaloupes. Vendors and customers haggle vociferously and throngs of people fill the narrow aisles. A retreat from the

stress of modern city life, Campeche offers simple joys: strolls along the town’s malecon, a broad boulevard flanking the seawall, where I pause to watch boats bobbing at anchor and fishermen selling their catch of the day. There’s the tranquility of evening as the sun dips below the rippled sea and the sky turns mauve in the afterglow. As dusk envelops the town, lights twinkle along the malecon and the night is filled with the lap of water against the seawall and the distant sound of guitars wafting out of a seafront restaurant.

Not a fairy-tale story, but a real, real story.” “A real story? Like what?” “Um, like how everything came to be. The sun, the moon, the stars, people and sharks and stuff.” “That’s a pretty big

list. Let’s see if I can put it in words you can understand.” “I can understand stuff. I’m in Grade 2 and a half!” “Okay, first there was a whole lot of nothing. And then there was lots of dust . . .” “Where did the dust come from?” “Hmmm. Not really sure. But the dust all bunched together into this really huge ball and then it exploded. Bang! We call that the Big Bang.” “Who set off the bang? Timmy’s dad sets off fireworks at Halloween and it’s really loud.” “Hmmm. That’s a good question. I think it was because the dust was so tightly packed. Then, after the bang, some of the dust became stars and some became planets and moons and asteroids.” “How did they do that?”

“Wow, you’re good at asking questions. Sort of like gravity.” “I like gravity on my mashed potatoes.” “No, that’s gravy. Gravity is something completely different. Then, one of the planets, Earth, had lots of water on it and was just the right distance from the sun. Some of the water had special chemicals, sort of like soup. We call it the ‘primordial soup’.” “I only like tomato soup.” “OK, that’s nice. Well, then some lightning zapped the soup and that’s when the first creatures came.” “Really? Timmy’s mom says God made everything.” “Well, Timmy’s mom believes in fables. This is how it happened. So, then all the little onecelled animals got more and more complicated and evolved into fish and dinosaurs and birds and monkeys, then people.”

“Evolved? What’s that?” “That’s when something gradually changes into something else. Like humans evolved from monkeys.” “Is that why mom calls me a little monkey all the time?” “Uh, not really. It’s just . . .” “So, are the monkeys still evolving?” “No, they stopped.” “Why did they stop? Don’t they want to become people one day?” “Hmmm. I think they stopped because everything was just right for them, so only some of them became people a long, long time ago.” “Yeah, but how did all that happen? Who made the plans for how everything should look?” “Plans? Nobody made any plans. It all just happened by accident and it took millions and millions of years.” “I don’t understand,

grandpa. You said you get an idea in your head before you make something, then you have to make lots and lots of plans to build your building. How come everything is so cool, like sharks and platypuses, and nobody planned it and everything happened by accident and we all came from soup?” “Well, it’s pretty complicated.” “Grandpa, you tricked me. I asked for a real, real story and you told me a fairy tale.” For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
