Lake to join Quebec-based medical marijuana company Former B.C. health minister, Kamloops mayor left politics in May CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Former Kamloops-North MLA and B.C. health minister Terry Lake is joining a Quebec-based licensed marijuana producer as a senior executive. Lake told KTW he became interested as health minister in the benefits of medical marijuana and was open to new opportunities after he decided not to seek re-election in the May provincial vote. Lake leaves Sunday for Gatineau, Que, where he will become vice-president of corporate social responsibility for Hydropothecary. “It’s the biggest single policy shift I’ve seen in Canada,” Lake said of the federal Liberal legislation to make legal recreational marijuana by next summer. “It’s important it’s done properly,” Lake said. “I’ve read the cannabis task force report [Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation] and have a good sense what the federal government expects for regulation. I want to make sure the company meets those goals.” Lake served as health minister for four years, one of government’s toughest roles, gaining plaudits along the way. He will bring that experience to an emerging multi-billion dollar industry. The linkage between Lake and the Quebec company comes from another former Kamloopsian, Adam Miron, who attended university locally and was active in the Young Liberals. Miron is one of the cofounders of Hydropothecary, which currently supplies medical marijuana to patients, but will expand to recreational supply next year. The company went public on the TSX Venture Exchange

Former Kamloops MLA and mayor Terry Lake, who most recently served in Victoria as B.C.’s health minister, has joined a Quebec-based medical marijuana company. He has said he will work in Quebec but maintain his base in Kamloops.

earlier this year. This summer, Miron invited Lake to tour the production facility and meet with the company’s board. Lake said his primary role with Hydropothecary is to ensure public, social and environmental health of the product expected to

be consumed by millions. He believes the new system will make marijuana safer for users and make it easier to keep it out of the hands of children once it is highly regulated. Lake, who served one term as Kamloops mayor and a term as Kamloops councillor before

entering provincial politics, will work in Quebec, but his base will remain in Kamloops. His wife, Lisa, works at Thompson Rivers University. Lake is a former veterinarian and university instructor, but he said he will no longer seek to practice.

Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was in Kamloops on Wednesday for a meeting and a fundraiser.

Tory leader Scheer listens to concerns of business owners Tells Chamber of Commerce Liberal tax changes ‘will kill jobs’ CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Business leaders told visiting Opposition leader Andrew Scheer Wednesday proposed Liberal government tax changes will hurt entrepreneurs and kill jobs. The Conservative leader, elected to lead the party in May this year, appeared in Kamloops for the first time as an elected politician. In addition to the meeting with Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and guests, he met with Manny Jules, the head of the First Nations tax commission and former chief of Tk’emlups Indian Band. In the evening Scheer was scheduled for a fundraising barbecue for the Kamloops Food Bank at a ranch in the North Thompson. “We have to get out the message this will kill jobs,” Scheer told the chamber meeting, which also included representatives from the medical community. The proposed Liberal tax changes are in the midst of a 75-day consultation. They include ending ability by pro-

fessionals and small business owners to distribute income to family in order to lessen their tax hit. Mike Parker, an accountant with Daley & Co. in Kamloops, said it is small- and mediumsized businesses that will take the hit. He said many of his clients who will be hurt are “what you’d call mom and pop [businesses] whose income is quite modest.” “A mom and pop pizza shop on Victoria Street — you will be hurt by this,” he said. Medical professionals complained they are being demonized for high incomes and long hours. Dr. Kevin Laupland, head of Kamloops medical staff, said high incomes come from long hours — hours he predicted will be cut if tax rates climb. “I’ll happily take 40 hours

[a week]. There will be a lot of people without doctors.” Scheer told the receptive audience the Liberal language that the wealthy must pay higher taxes “seems ideological.” “It’s an attack on job creators — people who take those risks,” he said. He also compared Liberal statements to language expressed in leftist countries. “Ten years later there’s bread lines and massive economic collapse,” he said. Scheer told chamber members he began his working life at a restaurant and later an insurance office, companies that give many young people a start. “We have to say it’s an attack on your 22-year-old son having a place to apply.” Jules met separately with Scheer. In an interview beforehand, the veteran native leader said he didn’t come with a specific agenda for the new Conservative leader. “We need lots of allies to make real change,” he said. “I’m here to talk about fiscal relations and how we can bring opportunity for First Nations.”

EXPERT BERWICK ON THE PARK

ADVICE & INFORMATION

Q: My mom’s health is failing and I think this is caused by a poor diet. She often tells me that she had cheese and crackers for dinner. How can I convince her that a healthy diet is important in maintaining optimum health? A: Never underestimate the importance of a well balanced diet. Nutrition plays a key role in healthy aging. Elderly folks living alone often have diets that fall short when it comes to healthy eating. Isolation is a growing concern and often a person’s social environment or lack of contact with friends and family can contribute to unhealthy eating. As people age, they are less likely to eat well and this is especially true if they are living alone. Studies show that older adults eating alone typically consume 50% fewer fruits and vegetables than individuals having dinner companions. Research adds evidence that social relationships encourage a healthy diet and ultimately a healthier lifestyle. Retirement Communities can be great places that offer healthy, well balanced meals with opportunities to be socially active and engaged. If you think retirement community living is a possibility make sure you do your research and join one of their community representatives for lunch. This might be just what your mom needs!

TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Could one of the Tournament Capital’s shuttered schools be reopened? Maybe, according to Kamloops-Thompson school district Supt. Alison Sidow. “Opening closed schools is a possibility that will be explored during the coming year,” she said. “We will certainly be going to our community and to the board for some proposals.” Board chair Meghan Wade said it’s not as easy as turning on the lights and welcoming students. “It requires community consultation, just like closing them did,” she said. “There will be a facility use plan coming to the board this fall.”

here will be challenges, she admits, but Alison Sidow’s confidence in her district’s staff is unwavering headed into the 2017-2018

school year. The superintendent of the Kamloops-Thompson school district told KTW parents have nothing to worry about, despite space crunches on both sides of the river and a potential teacher shortage that has the union thinking worst-case scenario. “It’s not unusual for our staff to deal with challenges as they arise,” Sidow said on the eve of her first full year as superintendent. “While there are issues we will address, I’m still very excited. Parents can feel very confident they’re sending their children to schools and classrooms where the learning will be rich.” Meghan Wade, chair of the board of education for the district, is equally optimistic, though her cries for capital cash somewhat belie the rosy picture. “All our ducks are in a row,” she said. “We are ready like we are every year. Our projects are done for the summer, our renovations, our portables.” Portable work over the summer was extensive and expensive. Eight

DAVE EAGLES/KTW

With the most recent addition of a portable in the staff parking lot, Westmount elementary school has five portable classrooms for this year’s school year.

new units were installed at a cost of about $130,000 apiece — about $1 million all told — bringing the total number of portables in use in the district close to 40. There are more portables on the grounds of SD73 schools than ever before. Eight are outside Valleyview secondary. Westmount elementary has five portables, representing about a third of its classrooms, Wade said. The portable proliferation, she said, points to the district’s need for capital cash. “We have pressure all across the south shore and Westmount, and some of our rural areas,” Wade said. “We need capital.”

teacher on Tuesday. That would be the worst-case scenario. — AMANDA JENSEN Many teachers prefer working in portables. “Is it ideal? No. Would we prefer to have new capital funding? Yes. But does it harm students? No.” One thing that could be harmful to students, according to the head of the Kamloops-Thompson Teachers’ Association, is a lack of educators. Amanda Jensen told KTW the district is short 70 teachers after hiring much of its teacher-on-call list. “We’re still in a position where we’re filling the last few jobs,” she said. “The district is doing it as quickly as possible, but it does take time. “I hope that it doesn’t mean that there are classrooms that don’t have

a teacher on Tuesday. That would be the worst-case scenario. It would mean some principals are going to be teaching classes.” Sidow said that won’t happen. “We won’t have principals in front of students,” she said. “We are accepting all students. There is a provincial concern with the number of teachers. “We have a very strong HR department to make sure we hire the very best.” Sidow said there are a number of potential remedies if some schools are short teachers, including having more than one teacher in a classroom or paying a teacher to take an oversized class.

provisions meant all districts in B.C. — including SD73 — were seeking more teachers. The Kamloops-Thompson school district hired more than 70 full-time teachers from across B.C. and Canada, as well as from the ranks of last year’s on-call list. Portables have been installed at several local schools to accommodate the changes caused by both neighbourhood growth and the court ruling limiting class sizes. Supt. Alison Sidow said the first week back might appear a bit hectic in some schools as staff adjust to enrolment patterns and shift resources accordingly. “We encourage parents to enrol their children in advance of the first day, but that does not always happen,” she said. “Inevitably, the first week of school requires flexibility and adaptability on the part of everyone. “There is no question school space will be at a premium in some locations, but we will make it work.”

VIEWPOINT

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK is a politically independent newspaper, published Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 1365B Dalhousie Dr. in Kamloops, B.C. V2C 5P6 Ph: 250-374-7467 | Fax: 250-374-1033 e-mail: editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops This Week is owned by Thompson River Publications Partnership Limited

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: Fire crews in Kamloops whose work has spared the city from infernos that have devastated other parts of the B.C. Interior this summer. The latest blaze to be snuffed out by the quick work of emergency responders occurred on Wednesday afternoon two kilometres east of Sun Rivers. With sizzling temperatures, extremely dry conditions and windy conditions, small grassfires can quickly morph into tragic situations, as we have seen in Lake Country and elsewhere this summer. Kudos to Kamloops firefighters for again managing to protect the Tournament Capital.

OUR

NOT: The decision by new B.C. Environment Minister George Heyman to not meet with Kamloops council to discuss the Ajax mine file. Heyman said it would be inappropriate for a decision-making minister to meet with council, despite the fact, as Deputy Mayor Arjun Singh noted, previous B.C. Liberal ministers met with council. Heyman’s refusal to meet with council is one thing, but if he follows federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna’s lead by deciding to not even tour the Ajax site before rendering a decision on the KGHM application, there is something wrong with the system.

VIEW

HOT: The Aurora Rotary Club of Kamloops for its tenacious work in bringing the world-famous RCMP Musical Ride to the city this week for two outstanding performances on McArthur Island. Large crowds showed up on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings to watch the shows under perfect conditions, with money from ticket sales going to help charities in the city.

Council knows pay going in

A

pparently, the $33,000-plus (the plus consists of the one-third of the $33,000 that is tax-free) Kamloops councillors are paid for part-time work is a pauper’s wage. Or it will be a pittance once the federal Liberal government eliminates the one-third tax-free portion in its next budget. According to veteran Kamloops Coun. Tina Lange, the plan by the Trudeau government to reign in the tax advantage will lead to municipalities raising the stipends paid parttime politicians. “All that’s going to happen is that’s downloaded onto their taxpayers because every municipality will look at what they’re paying their councillors and mayors and realize they have to pay them more because of that,” Lange said at Tuesday’s council meeting. “It’s the federal government downloading onto municipalities.” It is not Ottawa downloading onto municipalities because there are no costs being downloaded. It is a federal tax policy shift. Why, for example, should part-time politicians get a onethird salary tax break not afforded to a part-time fry cook at McDonald’s or to a KTW carrier supplementing their incomes? If $33,000 — with or without a tax-free component — is considered underpayment for a part-time position whose purpose is community service, not income padding, entitlement has reached new, gaudy heights. (That $33,000 is what Kamloops councillors earned in 2016, according to city financial documents. It does not include an extra few thousand dollars here and there for various representation elsewhere.)

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS

Newsroom

MUSINGS Consider that, according to Statistics Canada, the average salary in Canada in 2016 was $49,500. The $33,000-plus city councillors in Kamloops are paid, in addition to whatever else they earn in their regular employment or via pensions, places them in rather elite company on the nation’s salary structure. An additional $33,000 a year can be life-changing when added to a full-time income. This is not to suggest our city councillors do not work hard. They do. Then again, I do not know anybody who does not work more hours than for what they are paid. It is the nature of our society. But serving on city council (or on the school board) is a form of civic duty. One runs for office because one has ideas to improve the community. As we have seen in this year’s avalanche of candidates for three council positions in the Sept. 30 byelection, there is intense interest in civic duty in Kamloops. I would argue the 22 running for two vacant council seats would be doing so if the pay was half the $33,000-plus earned last year by councillors. We should also be reminded that city council reached the $33,000-a-year-mark after voting itself a generous raise four years

ago, following a report from a citizens’ group. In October 2013, councillors were paid $24,000 a year and voted for a graduated increase which was to culminate this year with councillors earning 40 per cent of the mayor’s salary. The mayor’s pay is determined by looking at the mayor’s salary in 14 similar-sized B.C. communities, eliminating the top and bottom, and landing on 90 per cent of the average of the remaining 12 communities. According to city financial records, Peter Milobar was paid $100,000 last year. It should also be noted that council voting itself a pay hike was not unanimous back in 2013. The motion went to a second vote and was approved by the slimmest of margins, 5-4, with Milobar and councillors Marg Spina, Pat Wallace and Ken Christian opposed and Lange and councillors Donovan Cavers, Arjun Singh, Nancy Bepple and Nelly Dever in favour. It should also be noted that Lange, back in the fall of October, was adamant the pay increase be brought in all at once, not in graduated levels, telling the media then that she was not sure she would seek reelection in 2014. Serving on council while having a full-time job is a tough go, but the compensation is generous. If the slog gets to be too onerous, the answer is not to reach deeper into taxpayers’ pockets. The answer is to finish your term and perhaps step aside to allow another citizen perform their civic duty. There will never be a shortage of Kamloopsians willing to sit around that horseshoe at city hall. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

CANDIDATES NEED TO POSSESS INTEGRITY Editor: On Sept. 30, voters will go to the polls in a Kamloops byelection. Thankfully, a number of people have stepped forward to let their names stand for two open positions on council and the mayor’s chair. They are to be commended for wanting to step out of the relative safety of private life and into the fishbowl of public life. As a public servant, they will be entering into a position of public trust. Their wages are paid for by the public, city hall is funded by public money and council chambers is a public place at all times, whether or not a meeting has been called to order. As a taxpayer, I suppose I am something of council’s boss. What I expect of my employees is loyalty to their elected positions and for them to hold close the understanding they are in a position of public trust. I do not vote for any of them with the expectation they will be responsible for laws or the level of governments outside of our municipality. I do not expect them to decide upon matters concerning such things as end of life, abortion, human sexuality or individual

KAMLOOPS BYELECTION 2017 Saturday, Sept. 30 #Kampaign17 decisions people make about sexuality. However, I do expect them to be above reproach in the way they present themselves as public servants. One of the things they will be doing is the mundane duty of making decisions on rezoning proposals If members of the public have been given the opportunity to voice concerns over a rezoning issue, keep in mind they are coming to a place that might seem somewhat intimidating to them, but they have given of their time and have made the effort to express themselves. Some of them will have invested their lifetime in a home they bought and paid for via many years of work and sacrifice. They chose to live there, raise a family and have wanted to maintain a quiet environment in which to retire. Our elected politicians owe it to them to listen and consider those factors in their deci-

sions. What council decides in a 35-minute meeting will affect their lives and dreams for years to come. Council members are to be above reproach and will be held accountable, some day, if they do something that breaches the public trust. Council chambers, before and during such meetings, are not the place for any family members of council to be. If council members know the applicant, they need to be very careful about even the slightest hint of impropriety or bias. They cannot allow family members to meet the applicant. (I can’t imagine anyone being so careless, but it could happen, I suppose.) They cannot let any family member talk to another voting member, then have that family member meet with the applicant. (I can’t imagine anyone being so careless, but it could happen, I suppose.) Being above reproach is still important in public life. Promise to be, then be a person of integrity, and that candidate will not only get my vote, but also get my support through their term in office. John Noakes Kamloops

MIFFED AT LACK OF CLASSES OFFERED AT WESTSYDE POOL Editor; I am disappointed in the lack of adult and toddler classes being offered at Westsyde Pool this fall. As a new mom, I was looking forward to spending time at the pool daily and enrolling my sixmonth-old son in swim class during the week. I was also hoping to take some aquafit classes, but I see 8 a.m. to

9 a.m. does not work for us. We have waited far too long — more than two years — to have our pool reopen on Sept. 8. According to then-mayor Peter Milobar, the HVAC system was not replaced during the new construction and may be replaced based on how many people use the pool facility. It is difficult to, too, when few

classes are offered. The parks and recreation department knew the pool would be reopening and lack of staff is no excuse. Hire more staff. I know one lifeguard from the Tournament Capital Centre was looking forward to the pool reopening and was hoping to teach the toddler classes as he

was great during our spring session. I hope more people contact the city about the lack of classes and that more are offered — and sooner than the spring because by then, I will be back to work and what little time I have to swim will be more limited. Caroline Muhlfellner Kamloops

Council candidate Johal wants Judge says Schoenborn to reduce red tape, expenses not a high risk accused B.C. SUPREME COURT

ANDREA KLASSEN STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops city council candidate says he would focus on removing red tape and going over the city’s expenses if elected to city hall. Jim Johal, a senior regional manager for Petro Canada, construction project superintendent and small business owner, said he wants to focus on community growth. “I’d like to analyze expenses that the city has been doing and try to cut expenses,” he said, pointing to things like water and power use, phone bills and other areas as possible cash-savers. “I think it can be done better. We’re always talking about having a small tax increase, and we know inflation is a real thing. But if we work within our city I’m sure we can find ways to reduce that.” Johal said he’d like to take a similar look at procedures within the city, particularly for those residents looking to set up businesses or relocate to Kamloops.

KAMLOOPS BYELECTION 2017 Saturday, Sept. 30

#Kampaign17 “I think we need to look into unnecessary licenses, procedures, forms, regulations,” said Johal. “Decrease the bureaucracy to establish here. And it’s not a new thought. The City of Calgary has been doing it since 2010, so we have a great platform to follow.” Johal said he also sees affordable housing as a place where the city needs to take more action. “We have to start actually finding available land, zoning it correctly, and making sure it fits our community plan,” he said. While the city has zoned several pieces of property for low-income housing in past, so far only one, at 975 Singh St., is slated for development by Lii Michif Otipemisiwak Family and Community Services. That project will include 30 units of housing for aboriginal youth and elders.

Johal said he thinks the city needs to make sure business owners and developers are part of affordable JOHAL housing discussions going forward to encourage use of those types of land, and to keep watch on senior levels of government for funding opportunities. Johal, who was born and raised in Kamloops, describes himself as a family man who wants to advance the interests of residents. “I believe the citizens of Kamloops should be our top priority,” he said. Voters will have a chance to elect two new councillors as well as a mayor in the Sept. 30 byelection. Johal is among 22 people running for council. Another six candidates are running for mayor.

THE CANADIAN PRESS

NEW WESTMINSTER — A judge has rejected an application to have a British Columbia man designated a high-risk accused after he was found not criminally responsible for killing his three children in Merritt nine years ago. Justice Martha Devlin of the B.C. Supreme Court said Allan Schoenborn does not pose a high enough risk that he could cause grave physical or psychological harm to another person. Devlin said based on Schoenborn’s progress, current mental condition and the opinions of experts, there is no reason to believe he poses a serious enough threat to warrant the designation. Schoenborn was convicted of first-degree murder in 2010 for killing his daughter and two sons, but found not criminally responsible because of a mental disorder. Schoenborn killed his children — 10-year-old Kaitlynne, eightyear-old Max and five-year-old Cordon — in April 2008. Their

SCHOENBORN mother, Darcie Clark, returned home to find them dead, arranged as if sleeping. His case gained notoriety again when former prime minister Stephen Harper singled him out when he introduced a law creating the high-risk designation for mentally ill offenders. The designation of high-risk accused has yet to be successfully applied since Harper’s government introduced the legislation in 2013.

Satellite data shows fire hotspots have grown five kilometres north of the perimeter past Hihium Lake and nearly eight kilometres north between Green

and Sheridan lakes. Fire activity along all northern branches appeared to be more intense according to data from 11 a.m. Wednesday. Working on the fire are 418 firefighters, 17 helicopters and 93 pieces of heavy equipment, as well as structural protection specialists, local fire departments —

including the North and South Green Lake fire departments — and aircraft from the Kamloops air tanker base.

STAFF REPORTER

Firefighters are working around the clock against new outgrowths of the Elephant Hill wildfire burning north of Cache Creek. The B.C. Wildfire Service said the fire grew from hot and dry conditions and gusty winds at “unexpectedly fast speeds.” In response, the service is dedicating “all available resources” to the fire. The blaze was expected to see even more later Wednesday afternoon as temperatures increase and “variable but gusty” winds blow. Information officer Ryan Turcot said a ridge of high pressure is expected to rebuild and persist well into next week, bringing even more hot and dry conditions, which, combined with the wind, are to blame for the recent surge of fire activity. On Tuesday, Kamloops hit a recordbreaking 38.5 C and the forecast from Environment Canada

and crews are on site to ensure a smooth flow of traffic. The Elephant Hill wildfire is currently listed as 50 per cent contained by the B.C. Wildfire Service, although, as of KTW press time, its perimeter map has not been updated since Aug. 25.

Ousted board member says ICBC needs overhaul CAM FORTEMS

STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

ICBC is an important part of B.C.’s future but it must be overhauled, said a city accountant who served

as a board member until being replaced by the NDP government. Ron Olynyk was one of three ICBC board members terminated by the new government and replaced with New

Democrat appointees. Reached earlier this week, Olynyk said the move by the NDP government under Minister David Eby came as no surprise. In addition to his professional designa-

tion as an accountant, Olynyk is the former president of Thompson Rivers University’s board of governors. Changes at the board level come at a pivotal time for ICBC. Eby released a report commissioned by the former Liberal government that warns rates for basic coverage need to rise 30 per cent if nothing is done to reform the system. Olynyk praised the report and said ICBC needs to change. “Legislative changes have to occur,” he said. “The report gives

options and ways of cutting costs that will bring claim costs down — that’s the whole objective.” The report by Ernst & Young proposes a number of options that include capping awards for pain and suffering from minor injuries — a growing burden on the system. B.C. is the only province in Canada with a purely adversarial tort-based system. As a result, ICBC and plaintiff legal costs consume 24 per cent of the budget for compulsory insurance.

It also recommends stricter traffic law enforcement to bring down accident rates. The report also notes accident benefits paid to injured drivers regardless of fault have not risen since the early ‘90s. It proposes increasing those accident benefits and focusing on rehabilitation for injured motorists rather than cash awards. Olynyk said the proposals are sound and reflect changes in other provinces and Australia. But he warned they won’t

come without controversy. When the NDP in the ‘90s proposed a nofault scheme, the province’s legal community rose in opposition and government eventually backed down. “Whether the Liberal government or the NDP is in, there will be political ramifications. Alternatives affect different cohorts of taxpayers.” Olynyk also warned government must act because any changes will take time for savings to trickle back to motorists.

Suspended sentence for grow-op CAM FORTEMS

STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

A 41-year-old Shuswap man received a suspended sentence Thursday after pleading guilty to production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking. Daniel Gordon Lee admitted to being caught in March at the scene of a rural Lee Creek growop of 448 pot plans, 15 pounds of dried marijuana bud and $2,000 cash.

The marijuana had an estimated street value of more than $22,000. Prosecutor Anthony Varesi said Lee was the “gardener or caretaker” of the operation. Property owners found on site during an RCMP raid were not charged. Varesi and defence lawyer Marvin Stern together made a joint submission to provincial court judge Stephen Harrison for a suspended sentence with a three-year term of probation. That includes a curfew for the

first year, a ban on alcohol and 10-year firearm ban. Stern said Lee has electrical training and agreed to do some work on the grow-op. He acknowledged only possession of 196 plants, the number in the particular room were he was found by RCMP, as well as joint possession of the 15 dried ponds of pot. Stern said the mandatory minimums for drug offences brought in by the Conservative government have recently been found to be unconstitutional.

Gangster released after drug charges stayed KIM BOLAN

VANCOUVER SUN

For years, friends of incarcerated Hells Angel Larry Amero have pasted “Free Larry” stickers on their Harleys to demand his release. On Wednesday, they finally got their wish after a judge in Quebec stayed organized crime and cocaine importation charges against the prominent B.C. gangster. Prosecutor Philippe VallièresRoland confirmed to Postmedia News that the charges were stayed because of the length of time the case took to get to trial. Last year, the Supreme Court of Canada set a 30-month time limit for prosecutions at the provincial supreme court level to be completed, except in exceptional circumstances. Amero is the highest-profile B.C. gangster to have his case thrown out under the so-called Jordan Rule. The 40-year-old biker has been in jail since his arrest in Montreal

Ruling that kids were not protected from sex abuse overturned LAURA KANE

THE CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — A court ruling that found social workers in British Columbia failed to protect kids from sexual abuse by their father, which sparked widespread condemnation of the Children’s Ministry and triggered an independent review, has been overturned. The B.C. Court of Appeal has also dismissed a family court decision that found the father had sexually abused his children, ruling that the judge largely relied on evidence from an expert witness who misrepresented her credentials, and ordered the man a new trial. Justice Daphne Smith, writing on behalf of a three-judge panel, found there was no evidence to support any of the mother’s claims, including that a social worker maliciously tried to discredit her allegations of sexual

abuse with police and child welfare staff. She also tossed findings that the director of child welfare was reckless and negligent in allowing the father to have unsupervised access and that he sexually abused his toddler during those visits. “There was no evidence that the social workers deliberately disregarded the interests of the children in favour of the father. Rather, the evidence is clear that the director prioritized the safety and well-being of the children,’’ she wrote. The mother’s lawyer, Jack Hittrich, said his client was “shocked and completely disappointed’’ by the decision and that she has asked him to file leave to appeal. She will retain custody of the children pending the outcome of the new trial in the family court case. None of the family members can be named due to a publication ban.

WINNIPEG — Many of the 3,700 people fleeing northern Manitoba forest fires were still waiting to fly south on Thursday, more than 24 hours after they left their homes on a journey made complicated by a lack of transportation. “They’re tired. They’re frustrated. There’s anger,’’ Chief Alex McDougall of Wasagamack First Nation said as he waited along with hundreds of others to board one of two military transport planes bound for Winnipeg, more than 500 kilometres to the south. “Some of us have been sleeping in terminals. Some of us have been sleeping in gymnasiums. There is some food being provided by the local [grocery] stores.’’ All 2,000 residents of Wasagamack had to leave Tuesday as a large forest fire came within 800 metres of the community. Because there is no airstrip, people took turns piling into boats in small groups for a 20-minute journey across a section of Island Lake to St. Theresa Point. Smoke from the blaze also forced out people with health problems from the St. Theresa Point and Garden Hill reserves. Small charter planes, that can carry between nine and 45 people, began ferrying people south to Brandon and Winnipeg on Wednesday, but a backlog persisted. Thursday morning, two Hercules

military transport planes, each capable of carrying 100 people, joined the effort. But the large aircraft could only use the airstrip at Garden Hill, McDougall said, so he and others had to take a two-hour trip by barge from St. Theresa Point to Garden Hill. In Winnipeg, the Canadian Red Cross prepared to welcome the evacuees by turning a 4,300-squaremetre hall at the city’s convention centre into an emergency shelter. Volunteers, including members of the Bear Clan Patrol — a nonprofit that keeps an eye on inner-city streets — were busy setting up more than 1,000 cots, dozens of eating tables and more. “We’re going to have an area where people can get personal services like hygiene products, hygiene kits, health needs, that sort of thing,’’ said Shawn Feely, the Canadian Red Cross’s regional vice-president. “Then we have the sleep area . . . and then we have the eating area and the recreation area. So for little kids, we’ll have people running activities.’’ By early afternoon, there was a long lineup of evacuees to register at the convention centre. Among them was Malcolm Harper, who had spent two nights in transit with his wife and three children, aged four, 11 and 13 after leaving Wasagamack for St. Theresa Point. “The first night, they put us in classrooms in the school . . . you could hear everybody, kids crying,’’ he said.

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has spoken to U.S. President Donald Trump to offer condolences over the deaths and destruction in Texas and Louisiana caused by hurricane Harvey. The Prime Minister’s Office said the two men spoke by phone Thursday. Trudeau also offered assistance with rescue and recovery efforts. The storm has killed at least 30 people and wrecked thousands of homes in Texas. Tens of thousands of people have taken refuge in shelters. Torrential rains have flooded vast

swaths of Texas and rain continues in some areas as the storm, now reduced to a tropical depression, creeps inland. According to the White House, the phone call included the two leaders speaking about their mutual hope to reach a deal on the North American Free Trade Agreement by the end of this year. There is no mention of the NAFTA discussion in the account of the conversation released by the Prime Minister’s Office. Trudeau’s office said later it doesn’t dispute the White House account. A second round of NAFTA negotiations begins Friday in Mexico.

No crime when men switched at birth: RCMP

Canadian economic growth ‘gangbusters’ thanks to consumers Second-quarter growth was 4.5 per cent, up from 3.7 in previous quarter

THE CANADIAN PRESS

NORWAY HOUSE, Man. — Manitoba Canada RCMP say no charges will be laid after an investigation into two cases of babies switched at birth at a northern Manitoba hospital more than 40 years ago. The four men went home with different parents from hospital in 1975. The RCMP and Health Canada launched separate investigations after the men went public with the mix-ups following DNA tests. RCMP spokesman Robert Cyrenne said the Mounties reviewed medical records and interviewed family members and hospital employees. He said there is no evidence that any criminal offence was committed. The results of the Health Canada probe have not yet been made public.

Ottawa sharing info with U.S. on all Americans entering Canada OTTAWA — Canada’s border agency has quietly begun sharing information with U.S. Homeland Security about the thousands of American citizens who cross into Canada each day. Before long, Washington is expected to provide Ottawa with similar information about Canadians entering the United States. The exchanges are intended to bolster security and help enforce other laws related to public health and safety. Under a 2011 continental security pact, Canada and the United States agreed to set up co-ordinated systems to track the entry and exit information of travellers. The system involves exchanging entry information collected from people at the land border — so that data on entry to one country serves as a record of exit from the other. The first two phases of the program were limited to foreign nationals and permanent residents of Canada and the U.S., but not citizens of either country.

Alberta Conservative leadership hopefuls looking at $75K entry fee EDMONTON — Candidates in Alberta’s conservative leadership race are being told they must pony up $75,000 to run. That’s the price set by the new United Conservative party ahead of the Oct. 28 leadership vote. Organizers for candidate Brian Jean have confirmed the number and say $25,000 is refundable as long as the entrant does not engage in conduct deemed detrimental to the party. The money is to be paid in two instalments. The United Conservatives were formed last month after the Wildrose and Progressive Conservative parties agreed to merge. Jean is former leader of the Wildrose. Other entrants are former PC leader Jason Kenney, former Wildrose president Jeff Callaway and longtime conservative strategist Doug Schweitzer. Kenney and Callaway could not be immediately reached for comment. A committee made up of Wildrose and PC members has been hammering out the rules of the race over the last month.

OTTAWA — The confident consumer helped drive across-the-board economic growth in the second quarter, giving the country its best start to a calendar year since 2002. Growth expanded at an annual pace of 4.5 per cent, which followed an impressive jolt of 3.7 per cent growth in the previous quarter. The surprisingly strong results raise the question: how long can Canada keep this up? Canadians, encouraged by cheap credit, a still-strong job market and better wages, have been a big part of the momentum because they’ve continued to open their wallets, Statistics Canada said Thursday. Household spending stood out once again in the agency’s report, growing by 4.6 per cent, on a year-over-year basis, between April and June. This followed an even healthier 4.8 per cent reading in the first three months of the year. Analysts like National Bank senior economist Krishen Rangasamy have doubts the

pace can be maintained much longer. “We’re not an emerging market,’’ he said, referring to Canada’s four per cent growth rate over the first half of 2017. “Advanced economies can see those occasionally, but you cannot expect that type of growth for an advanced economy to be sustained.’’ The sturdy growth provided the latest evidence that eco-

nomic momentum has continued to build in 2017. The data arrived with the Bank of Canada widely expected to once again hike its benchmark interest rate in the coming weeks. It solidified these rate-hike predictions and prompted some to suggest the increase could come as soon as next week’s scheduled announcement.

Rangasamy said the central bank’s intention raise its benchmark rate is a key reason why the growth will moderate in the second half of the year. The higher rates, which would help prevent households from amassing too much debt, would start to unwind an era of particularly cheap credit for consumers, he said.

Alberta university out almost $12M after falling for phishing emails MacEwan University says staffers were duped, costing school $11.8M THE CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — MacEwan University in Edmonton has been defrauded of $11.8 million in a so-called phishing attack. The university said workers were fooled by a series of fake emails asking them to change electronic banking information for one of the school’s major vendors. The change resulted in the transfer of nearly $12 million into a bank account staff thought belonged to the vendor, but, on Wednesday, officials found out they had been scammed. University spokes-

man David Beharry said most of the funds have been traced to accounts at financial institutions in Canada and Hong Kong. Beharry said the university has conducted an interim audit of business processes and controls were put in place to prevent further incidents. He said the university’s computer systems have not been compromised, but a preliminary assessment has determined that controls around the process of changing vendor banking information were inadequate. He said a number of

opportunities to identify the fraud were also missed. “There is never a good time for something like this to happen, but as our students come back to start the new academic year, we want to assure them and the community that our IT systems were not compromised during this incident,’’ Beharry said in a news release Thursday. “Personal and financial information, and all transactions made with the university are secure. We also want to emphasize that we are working to ensure that this incident will not impact our academic

or business operations in any way.’’ MacEwan has informed both the minister of advanced

education and the province’s auditor general, as well as other interested parties, Beharry said.

Pence surveys Harvey’s wreckage in Texas THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ROCKPORT, Texas — Vice-President Mike Pence surveyed the wreckage Thursday in the small coastal town where Harvey first slammed ashore as a Category 4 hurricane. The vicepresident toured a church whose side was blown out by the storm. Pence arrived in Rockport to see the devastation caused by the hurricane-turned-tropical depression that set a rainfall record and severely flooded the Houston area. Harvey’s five straight days of rain totalled close to 52 inches, the heaviest tropical downpour ever recorded in the continental U.S. During a 45-minute drive to his first stop, Pence’s motorcade drove past a long row of utility poles that remained standing but at an angle. He also saw scattered debris and some downed power lines. Residents of Rockport were among the first in the U.S. hit by Harvey, which came ashore last Friday as a Category 4 hurricane. Pence was visiting as the floodwaters in Houston that displaced thou-

sands had begun to recede. The vice-president, wearing jeans and cowboy boots, was joined by his wife, Karen, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, a former Texas governor, and other Cabinet members. Pence was greeted at the airport by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. President Donald Trump had travelled Tuesday to Corpus Christi and Austin for briefings with local officials. The president plans to return to Texas Saturday and possibly visit Louisiana, parts of which are being lashed by Harvey’s remnants. The vice-president is expected to meet with victims of the storm during a tour of the region, a trip that will be different than the president’s initial visit, which focused on the federal government’s co-ordination with state and local officials. Trump drew criticism for not directly mentioning hurricane victims when he tweeted Wednesday that after seeing “first hand the horror & devastation’’ wrought by Harvey “my heart goes out even more so to the great people of Texas!’’

Iraqi town ‘fully liberated’ from ISIS: prime minister THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BAGHDAD — The northern town of Tal Afar has been “fully liberated’’ from the Islamic State group, Iraq’s prime minister said Thursday, further shrinking the territory controlled by the extremists who overran nearly a third of the country three years ago. The militants have suffered a series of major defeats in recent months, including the loss of Mosul, the second-largest city, in July. Iraqi troops “eliminated and smashed’’ the militant group in alAyadia district, northwest of Tal Afar,

where they had fled last week, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in a statement. “To Daesh criminals we say: Wherever you are we will come to liberate and you have to choose only death or surrender,’’ al-Abadi added, using an Arabic acronym for the group. With the fall of Tal Afar, all of Ninevah province is “in the hands of our brave troops,’’ he said. The ethnically mixed province was the first to fall to the Islamic State when its militants swept across large parts of Iraq and Syria in the summer of 2014.

U.S. flies show-of-force fighters against N. Korea THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

STANDING UP FOR Fair Wages • Safer Workplaces • Respect

SEOUL, Korea — The United States flew some of its most advanced warplanes in bombing drills with ally South Korea on Thursday, a clear warning after North Korea launched a midrange ballistic missile designed to carry nuclear bombs over Japan earlier this week, the U.S. and South Korean militaries said. North Korea hates such displays of U.S. military might at close range and will likely respond with fury. Two U.S. B-1B supersonic bomb-

ers and four F-35B stealth fighter jets joined four South Korean F-15 fighters in live-fire exercises at a military field in eastern South Korea that simulated precision strikes against the North’s “core facilities,’’ according to the U.S. Pacific Command and South Korea’s Defence Ministry. The B-1Bs were flown in from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam while the F-35Bs came from a U.S. base in Iwakuni, Japan. North Korea claims Washington has long threatened it by flaunting the U.S.’s nuclear power.

CLIMATE CREEP AND AMERICAN FROGS

A

t least a decade ago, a retired general at the Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies said to me the rich countries will never take climate change seriously until some very big and apparently climaterelated disaster happens in a first-world country. Hurricane Harvey was not that disaster. At least 20 people have died in the Houston floods in the past few days and the number will undoubtedly go up. In Bangladesh, at least 134 have died in monsoon flooding that has submerged at least one-third of the country. But the latter fact will have no impact on opinion in the developed countries — “it’s just the monsoon again” — and the Texas disaster is not

GWYNNE DYER

World

WATCH big enough to change minds in the United States. Nor should it. Hurricanes are an annual event in the Gulf of Mexico and their causes are well understood. Global warming has raised the amount of rain this storm dumped on east Texas by three to five per cent. It also probably caused the changed wind patterns that kept Harvey loitering off the coast for so long. But it did not cause Harvey.

The Houston floods are causing so much disruption and misery mainly because of human decisions: putting such a large population on a flood plain subject to frequent hurricanes, then taking inadequate measures to protect those people from the inevitable consequences. It’s the same story as Hurricane Katrina — and if more than 1,000 dead in New Orleans 12 years ago didn’t change the way Americans deal with these threats, the current pain in Houston is certainly not going to do so. Indeed, just a couple of weeks ago, U.S. President Donald Trump scrapped Obama-era flood standards requiring infrastructure projects to take into account predicted global warming. There was no outcry. Immerse a frog in boiling water and it will immediately hop out.

Put it in cold water and then slowly heat it and the frog will not notice it’s being boiled. The evidence is there, but it’s coming in too slowly to get its attention. Climate change is creeping in quietly, making normal weather a bit more extreme each year, and Americans haven’t noticed yet. They get lots of help in maintaining their ignorance, of course. Right-wing think tanks like the Institute of Energy Research, the Heartland Institute and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, financed by the likes of Exxon Mobil and the Koch brothers, have already mobilized to deny any links between the Houston disaster and climate change. “Instead of wasting colossal sums of money on reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, much smaller amounts should be spent on

improving the infrastructure that protects the Gulf and Atlantic coasts,” said Myron Ebell, director of environmental policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (and formerly the head of Trump’s transition team at the Environmental Protection Agency, tasked with crippling it). But do not despair. This is largely an American phenomenon and the U.S. does not bulk as large in the climate equation as it used to. Almost all other developed countries are taking the threat of large-scale climate change seriously, although they have left it a bit late and they’re still not doing enough. Consider, for example, the Netherlands, which is almost as vulnerable to flooding as Bangladesh: a quarter of the country is below sea level. There is a sentence

in the introduction to the annual report of the Delta Programme, which deals with the rising sea levels and other water-related issues that concern the Dutch, that would be quite unthinkable in a U.S. government document even in Barack Obama’s administration. It reads: “The Delta Programme is tasked with ensuring that flood risk management and the freshwater supply will be sustainable and robust by 2050 and that our country will be designed in a manner that enables it to continue to cope resiliently with the greater extremes of climate.” If the United States had started taking the Dutch approach 20 years ago, far less of Houston would be underwater today. But “designing our country”? It’s un-American. The United States will get there eventu-

ally, but it will take a far greater disaster than the Houston floods — the loss of Miami, perhaps? — before it ends the ideological wars and starts dealing with the realities of its situation. Meanwhile, the rest of the world will have to cope with climate change without American help. New technologies offer more promising routes for cutting emissions and the world still has a chance of avoiding runaway global warming (+3-6 C). Even if we can stop the warming before +2 degrees C, however, it’s too late already to prevent major climate change. There will be bigger floods and longer droughts, food shortages and floods of refugees, and countries will have to work hard to limit the damage. Including, eventually, the United States. gwynnedyer.com

TRAVEL WRITERS’ TALES

his city is all about history — American history. And all you must do to enjoy it is to follow the red line painted along the brick sidewalks. That red line is called The Freedom Trail, red-brick walking trail stretching just over four kilometres from downtown Beantown to 16 nationally significant historic sites. Preserved in 1958 when the wrecking ball threatened to obliterate many of the city and nation’s most sacred sites, the trail today is a collection of museums, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, and historic markers that tell the stories of the American Revolution and beyond. In the old Granary Burying Yard, where some of America’s most notable citizens rest, a man in 18th-century dress approached me and asked, “You wouldn’t be Samuel Adams, now would you?” “No,” I replied. “Well I thought you were,” he shot back, “because you are about the same size, you know.” Within a short period, the volunteer in historical garb tells me about the lives of Revolutionary heroes buried here — Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, James Otis, all five of the Boston Massacre victims, Benjamin Franklin’s parents and Peter Faneuil. The most treasured historical areas of the city where historically garbed volunteers lurk — churches, Bunker Hill, the wooden-hulled frigate USS Constitution, the Paul Revere House — are easily accessible. But, there’s so much more to the city. For it is also the home of the Boston Symphony, the Boston Red Sox, the traditions of Harvard, MIT’s contemporary looking campus structures, Berklee College of Music, the must-see Boston Public Library on Boylston Street (where

from Europe, North America, North Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia. Near the downtown waterfront is Faneuil Hall, in the heart of the marketplace area that shares its name. Built by wealthy merchant Peter Faneuil in 1741, it’s where the Sons of Liberty proclaimed their dissent against Royal oppression. Faneuil Hall has served as an open forum meeting hall and marketplace for more than 250 years and is still a location for debate — Boston’s version of London’s Hyde Park Speakers Corner. Its array of shops, restaurants and outdoor entertainment has also made it a major urban destination that attracts more than 18 million visitors annually. It also has a replica of the pub that spawned the TV series, Cheers, though the original is at 84 Beacon St. on Beacon Hill. Originally called the Bull & Finch Pub, producers of the proposed television series had stopped off for a beer and decided on the spot to use the pub as the series setting. Both pubs are now named after the show. Just a short walk north of the market is the North End’s vast restaurant district that also embraces many of the city’s historical sites such as the Revere House and the Old North Church. It’s Boston’s oldest neighborhood, historically home to a range of ethnic communities. Today, the neighborhood has a strong Italian flair and is the home of some of the city’s best Italian restaurants. Walk along Hanover Street and you’ll be overwhelmed by the number of eateries and specialty shops. Take the side streets to find out-of-the-way places that locals frequent. You can spend at least one full day just taking in the ambience of the place. Boston is one of America’s most civilized cities and a place you’ll want to return often.

FAITH

The Sally Ann is a credit to the cause of Christ

T

he Salvation Army is commonly referred to as the Sally Ann in Canada. They have certainly made their presence known in the ongoing fire evacuation crisis with their feeding station van down at the Sandman Centre. I recall a journalist asking one of the staffers why they were there. The response was, “It’s in our DNA.” I thought that was a pretty good answer because it’s very true that the Salvation Army has been front and centre in disaster relief almost since its inception as an organization. It made its name in the United States with efforts in helping the afflicted in the Galveston hurricane of 1900 and in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. In fact, the Sally Ann is one of the world’s largest providers of social aid and operates in 127 countries. The Salvation Army was started in 1865 in England by Methodist preacher William Booth and wife Catherine. Its basic theology is similar to many other branches of evangelical Protestantism, with two notable exceptions — the organization does not celebrate communion or baptism. Booth believed there was too much reliance on the outward symbols of grace rather than grace itself. Nevertheless, the absence of these two sacraments is a significant departure from traditional Christian practice. The name Salvation Army apparently arose from an incident in which Booth was dictating a letter to his secretary and referring to his mission workers as a “volunteer army.” His son Bramwell, who was in the room at the time, said, “I’m no volunteer, I’m a regular.” So Booth instructed the secretary to replace the word volunteer with “salvation.” With the concept of the salvation of those on the fringes of society —

CHRIS KEMPLING

FAITH

the homeless, alcoholics, drug addicts, prostitutes, criminals and beggars, etc. — as a military operation, Booth decided his ministers would wear militarystyle uniforms and carry an appropriate rank. He was the first “general,” while most local church leaders have the rank of captain. The Salvation Army seems to follow the principle embodied in this quote by missionary C.T. Studd: “Some want to work within the sound of a church or chapel bell. I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.” It is not by accident the much of the work of the Salvation Army occurs in areas of deepest need in most cities of the world. I recall an ex-alcoholic telling me that when he was a denizen of the Downtown Eastside area of Vancouver and drinking heavily in the bars there, that at Christmas time, Salvation Army workers would come into the bars soliciting donations. He said they always made a killing because everyone in there knew there was a good chance they would be needing the Sally Ann’s services sooner or later. Religion writer William Barclay wrote, “We are never nearer God, and we are never more akin to God, than when we are sharing someone’s trouble, bearing someone’s burden and helping someone’s need.” Booth said the Salvation Army had three main goals in working with the “down and outs”: soup, soap and salvation. First they would meet their basic need with a nourishing meal

at no cost, then provide a place to clean up and sleep if needed. Thirdly, they would offer the gospel message as a way of spiritual healing and a way out of their destructive lifestyles. It is practical Christianity that meets people’s needs where they are without judgment. The good works of the Salvation Army seems to reflect the exhortation of the apostle James: “What use is it, brothers, if a man says he has faith, but has no works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothing or in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,’ and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? . . . Faith without works is dead.” James was clearly saying that if you have faith, it should be reflected in how you treat those in need around you. But things have not always gone easy for the Salvation Army. In the early days, it was so successful at saving people from their hard-drinking lifestyles that a group called the Skeleton Army (allegedly organized by pub owners losing business to the Salvation Army’s policies against alcohol consumption of any kind) disrupted the organization’s meetings and assaulted some of its workers. And, in Russia in 2001, a Moscow court ruled the Salvation Army was a “paramilitary organization” and subject to expulsion. Despite such opposition, the Salvation Army continues to soldier on, caring for those most in need. It is a credit to the cause of Christ. KTW welcomes submissions to its Faith page.

ude awakenings have been served up this week at Memorial Arena like half-racks at Ribfest. Kamloops Storm head coach Ed Patterson said the bulk of his team showed up to training camp without the faintest inkling of what it takes to achieve their hockey goals. “We have guys that are out of shape, guys that didn’t do what they’re supposed to do,” said Patterson, lacing his skates up before a Tuesday morning on-ice session. “We have the odd guy that did. Hopefully, they can tell, they can see a guy with his shirt off or not getting tired in practice, and that guy has success. But it’s going to be a lot of work until Christmastime with conditioning and footwork and our brains, and probably a lot of therapy for myself and [assistant general manager] Matt [Kolle].” Patterson had conversations with the junior A Salmon Arm Silverbacks and major junior Vancouver Giants, both of whom were looking to fill vacant coaching positions in the off-season, but nothing materialized and he agreed to return to the local junior B Kootenay International Junior Hockey League squad. “You have to put yourself out there,” Patterson said. “I haven’t chased. With it being my son’s [Max Patterson] draft year and Kootenay [Ice] turning things around, hopefully, I get to catch some of his games with the lighter junior B schedule. Once you make the next step, you’re married to the rink for the whole season. “I think I have unfinished business here. We still haven’t won a championship. We’ve been to the finals lots. I’d really like to win a title before I move on.” Patterson has coached the team to four league championship series and has never missed the playoffs in six

seasons behind the bench. The Storm began the 2016-2017 campaign with about 16 rookies and graduated 10 players to higher levels of junior hockey during the season, a feather in the organization’s cap, but the revolving-door roster makes it tough to win banners. Kamloops was eliminated by the Chase Heat in Round 2 in March. This may well be Patterson’s last go-round with the Storm and he is tasked for the second straight season with building a green team into a contender. “We’re probably going to have 22 rookies to start this year,” Patterson said. “It’s challenging and it helps me grow as a coach.” Kolle, whose hockey connections run deep in B.C. and Alberta, was hired in May to help out wherever he can, both with day-to-day operations and recruiting. “We don’t want to suppress a kid and I see that happening in other [KIJHL] organizations,” said Kolle, whose son, Ty, was drafted by the Portland Winterhawks in

2015 and was at camp with the WHL club this week. “They’re held back. We don’t want to be that organization. You always want to win a championship for the community, but I don’t think you want to win at all costs. If we can bring a championship, man, that’s a double reward.” Kolle helped woo 17-yearold goaltender Jordan Wilde to camp this week, a piece both the assistant GM and Patterson raved about on Tuesday morning. “It’s going to be hard work,” Wilde said. “There is no easy way out. You have to go as hard as you can.” Wilde received praise from trainer Greg Kozoris, one of a select few who stood out during dry-land workouts at Exhibition Park on Monday night. “There are a handful of kids that did some work, like [2000born forward] Seiji Brown looks good, but he didn’t put in the work that the Western League guys did,” Patterson said. “Koz challenged some of the kids to go to the gym. [1999-born

forward] River Ross was at the gym first thing this morning, 8 a.m., the only kid. You see that, you say, obviously, I can work with that guy.” Kaine Comin, a 1999-born forward, is among the few returnees looking to make an impact this season with the Storm and follow in the path of teammates who moved onto higher levels. “It’s like losing family members when guys move on, but you meet new guys and you bond,” said Comin, a Whitehorse product. “Every year, the Storm is good. Obviously, something works.” What didn’t seem to work last season was the club’s move to Memorial Arena from McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre. Fans did not flock to Storm home games and Dewar painted a murky financial picture for KTW in a May interview, saying it won’t be possible to pay accomplished coaches such as Patterson if attendance woes continue. Dewar said fans had two major complaints: The rink was too cold and the concession was lacking.

Now on the GO

The City of Kamloops has recently made adjustments to keep spectators warmer, Dewar said, noting the concession, which will now be run by his son, will offer more this season. “We think the upgrades to the facility provides a better customer experience for our fans, with an expanded menu and quality coffee available,” Dewar said. The Storm, whose gates were particularly poor when forced to compete against the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers last season, will stage six of their would-be home games in Quesnel this season. Patterson is aiming to whip his group into shape in time for its season-opening contest against Revelstoke on Sept. 8. “The young guys, unless they have a proper mentor, they don’t understand what it actually takes to be successful,” Patterson said. “But I do see potential in this group. It’ll be rewarding when it’s all done.” Kamloops’ home opener at Memorial is scheduled for Sept. 9, when Summerland comes to town.

Charlie Bruce, seen here competing in the 2013 Kamloops Spring Sprint Triathlon, was among a number of triathletes who excelled recently at triathlons in Penticton and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Wayne Rusk It is with broken hearts we regretfully announce the passing of Wayne Thomas Rusk on August 30, 2017 at the age of 74 after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Wayne will be forever missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 42 years Dianne (Drysdale), daughters Brianne (Jon) Sanders, Raylene (Shane) Harris and their beautiful children Bree and Tanner who have been the greatest joy in Wayne’s life. He is survived by his sister Mary Jane (Ralph) Finch and family, sister-in-law Lorian (David) Lawes and family, brothers-in-law Brian (Sharon) Drysdale and family, Roy (Greta) Drysdale and family and John Drysdale as well as many close cousins, aunts and uncles on both sides of the family. He will also be missed and remembered by many close friends who became family. Wayne was predeceased by his parents Earl and Rosella Rusk, father-in-law Gordon Drysdale, brother-in-law Bruce Drysdale and other members of his extended family. Wayne was raised in Gainsborough, Saskatchewan where he spent many years playing hockey, baseball, fishing, hunting and working on farms. Wayne moved to Ottawa to join the RCMP after finishing high school. Upon finishing training, he moved to BC and had 21 postings including one man detachments in Anaheim Lake and Barriere before meeting and marrying Dianne in Cranbrook. Wayne and Dianne moved to Barnhartvale in 1978 where they raised their girls and made many close friends. They lived there until moving to Rivershore in 2007 where they added to their large circle of friends. After retiring from the RCMP he worked at BC Lottery Corporation and managed the Kamloops

Spots are filling up fast, but there is still time to register. Throughout the weekend, hundreds of athletes will compete in soccer, athletics (track and field), squash, tennis, volleyball, pickleball, slopitch, women’s hockey and mountain biking. Events will take place at various Tournament Capital venues. On Saturday night, athletes will celebrate at the Saturday Night Social in Riverside Park.

Walking into soccer this fall

Soccer Quest is introducing the first walking soccer program in Kamloops. The games will take place at the Soccer

Quest indoor soccer facility, located at 1224 Eighth St. on the North Shore. Walking soccer has become popular in Europe, especially for the more senior-aged players in their 50s and 60s. Walking soccer will be held as a drop-in program every Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to noon. Walking soccer is similar to regular soccer, with the difference being there is no running allowed. There is minimal contact and players can change on the fly. The ball is very rarely out of play due to the arena soccer set up at the Soccer Quest facility. There will be a $10 drop-in fee for each session and teams will be organized each drop-in day. Sessions will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 12, and continue until March of next year. For more information, call 250-554GOAL (4625) or go online to soccerquest. ca.

THANK YOU KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

We will miss his sense of humour, admirable stubbornness and forthright opinions. He was a man of integrity who would and did do anything for family, friends and strangers. We are devastated but so thankful we had the time we did with him. He was an incredible man who lived a life of which he should be proud. If desired, donations in his memory can be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice. A Celebration of Wayne’s Life will be held at the Kamloops Curling Club, 700 Victoria St., Kamloops on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Dianne, Brianne and Raylene would like to extend their thanks and appreciation to their friends, family, Dr. Anders, Dr. Faddegon, Dr. Proctor, Dr. Tevendale, and Dr. Kebarle and the nurses on 7 North for their care and support during this difficult time.

Forde’s focus is on his dad’s team — B.C. Lions JOSHUA CLIPPERTON

THE CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — Maxx Forde’s first highlight with the B.C. Lions wasn’t the day the defensive lineman was drafted, his first game, his first start or his first sack. It happened when he was a toddler perched on his father Brian Forde’s shoulders after the linebacker helped the club win the 1994 Grey Cup — a moment immortalized on a VHS tape. “The video’s probably in storage somewhere, but I’m sure I could dig that up,’’ said Maxx Forde, who was just three when the Lions beat Baltimore 26-23 in a thrilling title game at B.C. Place Stadium. “I don’t remember the actual moment, but we’ve got a picture of me, my mom, dad and little sister with the Grey Cup. “I have some very

brief flashbacks. It’s kind of like snapshots. I remember my dad would bring me in the locker-room and guys like [Canadian Football Hall of Fame kicker] Lui Passaglia would give me a pop.’’ While talking about those times brings a smile to his face, the road that would eventually bring Forde back to the team hasn’t always been an easy one. Born in Seattle, Maxx and the Forde family settled just outside the city in Woodinville, Wash., when Brian’s playing career ended. The younger Forde excelled on the football field in high school before he committed to the University of Idaho, where he registered 83 solo tackles and six sacks in 46 career games over four seasons. The NFL was the dream, but as Forde was preparing for a senior

Woods posts video of his short game JUPITER, Fla. — The latest image of Tiger Woods looked more familiar. The 14-time major champion had a golf club in his hand. Woods tweeted a short video on Thursday, showing him hitting a chip shot with a message that said, “Dr. gave me the ok to start pitching.’’ In April he had a fourth surgery on his back to fuse disks. Woods last played a tournament in early February, when he shot 77 and withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic. He most recently made news from a driving arrest on Memorial Day that included a mug shot from the Florida jail where he was briefly held. Woods said the incident involved a mix of painkillers and a toxicology report issued in August showed he had the active ingredient for marijuana, two painkillers and two sleep drugs in his system. Woods entered a drug treatment centre in June. — Canadian Press P O T T E D T C B Y

year at Idaho that would be hampered by injury, another door opened when the CFL and its players signed a new collective bargaining agreement in June 2014. The document loosened the rules on what constituted a “national’’ — or Canadian — player, meaning Forde would be eligible for the draft because his dad was born in Montreal.

“I knew the CFL was a good league,’’ Forde said after practice last week in Surrey. “It came on my radar pretty late that I would be a national.’’ But that would just be the first step in what turned into a long and sometimes frustrating path. Forde expected to be taken somewhere in the first few rounds of the

2015 draft. He instead fell to No. 58 — there were only 62 picks — and B.C. selected another defensive lineman, Ese Mrabure, fifth overall. “I wasn’t sure if they forgot about me,’’ the six-foot-five, 262-pound Forde recalled. “I came into the day with high expectations. I was kind of dejected, but I’ve used that as fuel.’’ The Lions said

despite taking a flyer on Forde in the seventh round, his raw numbers scored the highest with the club’s analytics department. “He had a lot of good measurables,’’ said B.C. defensive line coach Robin Ross, who held the same position at Washington State in 1986 when Brian Forde was setting a school record for tackles in a season.

“You take everything into consideration and look at where you think they’re going to be.’’ What made the Lions take Forde, who owns a business, marketing and finance degree with a minor in statistics from Idaho, still intrigues him. “I don’t know what their model exactly stresses,’’ he said. “I’d love to be in their shoes one day in front office.”

LABOUR DAY

Strategies to improve your work environment The key to better work-life balance is a healthy and engaging workplace and positive relationships with your colleagues. While you can’t control everything, you can use these strategies to help boost your happiness and productivity at work. 1. Take charge of your workspace: Whether you have a corner office or a cubicle, small changes to your work station can have a big impact. Keep things clean, organized and tidy, add a low-maintenance plant and incorporate personal touches like a photo of your most recent vacation (as long as it’s a photo that is appropriate to the workplace). 2. Learn to mitigate conflicts: Although disputes in the workplace are normal and natural, if not managed they can lead to absenteeism, lost productivity and mental health issues. “While you can’t always avoid conflicts, it’s helpful to use prevention and mitigation strategies,” explains Dr. Barbara Benoliel, a conflict resolution expert and faculty member at Walden University’s Barbara Solomon School of Social Work and Human Services. “Pick your battles and resolve small conflicts early, and don’t engage in conflict for the sake of conflict.” 3. Embrace change: One constant in modern workplaces is change — in products and services, staff, technology and company policies.

If change makes you anxious, the first step to coping is recognizing it will happen. Things that can help include a positive attitude, developing your skills and selfconfidence, and staying focused on your long-term goals. 4. Handle interruptions better: Most of us get interrupted many times a day. Coming up with a strategy to deal with these interruptions can help lower stress. Try a well-practised line about needing to get back to it for your chatty co-worker or blocking off an hour to answer a neverending stream of emails and ignoring them the rest of the time. 5. Understand your conflict management style: Go beyond general resolution tactics by learning about the five major conflict management styles: collaborating, competing, avoiding, accommodating and compromising. Dr. Benoliel advises: “You can get the best results for both minor and major disagreements by choosing the right approach to each situation. Consider two factors to help you decide — the importance of the relationship to the other party and the importance of the outcome for your peace of mind.” Find more information on conflict management online at www.waldenu.edu/conflict. newscanada.com

LABOUR DAY

Chance for working people to celebrate This Labour Day opinion column comes from CUPE BC president Paul Faoro.

E

very year at this time, labour leaders are asked for their thoughts on the importance of Labour Day and each year we talk about the history of the labour movement, the gains we have made for working people — unionized or not — and the importance of solidarity as we stand up to anti-worker and anti-union governments. For 16 years, more than a generation of working people have had to fight to protect their rights from a right-wing B.C. Liberal government that cared more about its wealthy and well-connected donors than about the rest of us. Finally, with Premier John Horgan and the first B.C. NDP government since 2001, working people really do have something to celebrate this Labour Day. We know the legislature will be called into session in September, marking the first time working people don’t have to worry about which group of workers will have their contracts torn up or whose jobs will be privatized. This coming legislative session, our new government will begin the hard work of restoring the notion that government can be a force for good and not just to implement the wish lists of the rich. This Labour Day, working people can

celebrate a return to balance in our economy, where all people benefit from a growing economy, not just those with a vested interest. We can celebrate an end to the influence of big money in our elections, the beginning of a $10 per day child care system, significant improvements to our K-12 education system after years of confrontation and neglect and a concerted effort to finally take meaningful action on the epidemic of opioid overdoses. Labour Day is a celebration of the power of working people coming together to demand what’s right: • Decent wages, solid benefits and retirement with dignity. • Social and economic justice and responsible stewardship of our resources and our environment. No benefits that workers enjoy was ever “given” to us — not the weekend, not sick leave, not overtime, not even the eight-hour day. Working people united and fought for them. Happy Labour Day to everyone, from all 87,000 CUPE members across British Columbia. CUPE BC is the largest union in British Columbia, representing more than 87,000 women and men in nearly every community in the province.

LABOUR DAY

Avoid being a scam victim on Labour Day long weekend With Labour Day fast approaching, consumers will be taking advantage of deals on big ticket items or last-minute trips. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is advising consumers to be aware of potential scams. “Many consumers may be looking for last-minute deals on trips or big-ticket items like new cars,” said Evan Kelly, senior communications advisor for the BBB serving Mainland B.C. “We just want to remind consumers to proceed with caution and do your research before making a large purchase.” The BBB offers the following tips for planning a last-minute trip: • Book through a reliable source. Check out travel agencies at bbb.org/mbc. Accredited businesses must adhere to BBB’s eight standards for trust, including to advertise honestly, be transparent and honour promises. • Search for reputable online deals. There are many reputable websites that offer discount packages and travel deals, as well as travel sites that offer vacation packages at discounted rates. These are great options for finding legitimate trips at an affordable price. Be sure to read the deals carefully, as blackout dates and specific details may apply. • Get details about your trip in writing. Be sure to confirm all details in writing, such as total cost, flights, hotel reservations, car rental or any restrictions that apply. • Use a credit card as payment. Paying by credit card offers the most protection

should something go wrong or you need to dispute a charge. • Consider purchasing travel insurance. Travel insurance provides coverage for particular perils that occur on a trip under which it will pay out claims. Be sure to research different travel insurance policies and thoroughly read the terms and conditions before purchasing. • Be wary of claims that you “won” a trip. Generally, if you’ve truly won something, it will be given to you as a gift. Be especially leery if the offer is unsolicited. Check on any offers that sound too good to be true with your local Better Business Bureau. BBB offers tips when searching for last-minute deals: • Search for sales ahead of time. Labour Day sales usually begin before the holiday and last several days. Check out store websites and online advertisements, as there are specific discounts being offered this Labour Day. Don’t be afraid to comparison shop and check prices on the same items at different locations. • Do the homework. Labour Day is a great holiday to shop for a new car. But before signing on the dotted line, be sure to do your homework to find out exactly what you’re looking for, how much you can afford, and the type of customer incentives being offered.

Obituaries & In Memoriam Vilma Frieda Nahirney (Engel)

Adrien Gwynne Gilmore

delighted in watching sporting events of all sorts. Olympic years were highlights for her.

May 5, 1927 – June 25, 2017

Dearly loved and forever missed. Vilma left us peacefully on June 25, 2017. Vilma was born in Rhein, Saskatchewan. She was the eighth of nine children in an agricultural family. Her young life was full of music and singing with her family in the evenings. Vilma accompanied her siblings playing the guitar. In 1952, Vilma and Wally were married in Rhein. They worked the Nahirney family farm until they moved to Chilliwack in 1957 to find work after a devastating tornado wiped out all the crops. With farming in their blood, they continued to have large gardens while they raised their two children Candice (Rick) Parker of Kamloops and Arlene (Trevor) Adams of Spruce Grove, AB. Vilma and Wally designed and built their own home in Chilliwack. Quite the pair of carpenters. They traveled and explored a lot of Western Canada in BC and with trips back to the prairies. Many road trips were taken to visit family or fishing with some ventures to Las Vegas and Reno for the excitement of the shows, bingo and slot machines. They also bowled, went square dancing and played cards with many friends.

June 24, 1924 - August 17, 2017

‘Gil’ was born on Battle Street in Kamloops, BC.

Vilma was a very proud grandmother to Barry (Mingqi) Parker and Brenda Parker. Always cheering on their many accomplishments and adventures. In recent years, Vilma volunteered at the North Shore Community Centre in Kamloops where she enjoyed visiting with her friends over coffee. Vilma also had fun visiting her ‘Mall’ friends at North Hills in Kamloops. Many thanks to Janice Achilles for all her friendship, care and support for Vilma. Vilma was a very cheerful and friendly person. Her unconditional accepting nature made her approachable by anyone. Vilma’s greatest joy was her family. Besides her children and grandchildren, Vilma leaves behind her sisters-in-law Vi Engel (Kelowna), Winnie Baczynski (Chilliwack) and Elsie Naherney (Saskatoon), as well as many nieces and nephews. A Celebration for Vilma will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 9, 2017 in the Schoening Chapel Tea Room, 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops, BC.

Vilma moved to Kamloops after Wally passed to be closer to some of her family.

Flowers are gratefully declined, instead, should friends desire, please make donations to the Kamloops Hospice Association or the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Vilma loved her books! She had read her way through several libraries’ worth of volumes. Her favourite past-time was going to her regular bingo on Tuesday afternoons. Vilma was an armchair athlete who

Q. Murray wants to go immediately from the hospital to the crematorium. Okay?

!

A. In BC, a person cannot be cremated until 48 hours after their death. Murray could stay in the hospital morgue but usually the family wants him taken from there to the funeral home, before going for cremation. !

January 12, 1950 – August 16, 2017

In the early morning hours of August 16, 2017 we said goodbye to our wife, mother, sister and friend. Wendy is survived by her husband of 48 years Wayne, her son Michael (Thea) of Kamloops, daughter Suzanne (Todd) of Mission, her brother Bill (Debbie) of Merritt and long lost brother Ted. Wendy is predeceased by her parents Al and Bobbie and her best friend Maggie. Born in Vancouver, Wendy grew up in Burnaby. She graduated from Burnaby North High School in 1968 and went on to work for Pemberton Securities. In 1969, she married Wayne. A move to Kamloops came in 1971, where she continued to work at Pemberton Securities. Then the kids came along, Mike in 1972 and Suzanne in 1975. She spent a lot of time volunteering and being involved in their schools and activities like hockey and skating over the years. She returned to school and graduated in 1991 as an RN. She took employment with Royal Inland Hospital, spending most of her career working on 6S, retiring in 2015. She was just starting to relax, enjoy her pool and tending her rose garden with Maggie by her side, when her cancer diagnosis came. After enduring nearly a year of courageously living with grace and dignity, she lost her battle. Many thanks go out to Dr. Jason O’Connell and the team of amazing doctors and nurses on the 8th floor of RIH who cared for Wendy. Heartfelt thanks to her many friends, who loved and supported her through this difficult time. As per Wendy’s request, there will be no formal service. In lieu of cards and flowers, donations in Wendy’s memory may be made to the “Afternoon Auxiliary” at Royal Inland Hospital, 311 Columbia St., Kamloops, BC, V2C2T1 Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

Joshua Schimanowsky It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and grandson Joshua William Schimanowsky. Josh went home to be with his Lord and Saviour on Sunday, July 30, 2017 at 30 years of age. He was born on October 29, 1986, in Kamloops, B.C. Josh is survived by his parents Myles and Diane Schimanowsky, sisters Kristen and Jamie (Corey) and cherished nieces Alexandra, Emerson and Harper, maternal grandmother Mary Gibb of Kamloops and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Josh will forever be remembered for his kind and gentle spirit. He exuded love, compassion and generosity to all he met. Josh’s humour and quick wit, combined with a shy smile, made him friends wherever he went. He attended Arthur Stevenson Elementary and graduated from Westsyde Secondary. A loyal fan of the Vancouver Canucks, Josh grew up playing hockey in Kamloops, with childhood dreams of playing in the NHL. Josh was a natural athlete however, his physical abilities were limited by a genetic spine disease which resulted in a lifetime of chronic pain. Josh was blessed with many talents including a love of cooking and gardening. Many hours were spent in the kitchen experimenting and creating his own amazing recipes, as well as in the garden, nurturing his unique fruits and vegetables. Josh’s favourite pastime was spending time with his precious nieces; digging for treasure in the backyard or

being buried in the sand. Uncle Josh was adored by his girls and they were the light of his life. Josh had an intense passion for the Lord Jesus Christ. He lived first and foremost for Him, always wanting to learn more and to share his hope for eternity with others. While Josh didn’t always understand the pain and tribulations of life, his faith in the Lord never wavered. Though we are left shattered and broken by his absence, we will continue to celebrate Josh and express our love of him every single day, until we meet again.

Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Obituaries & In Memoriam Albert (Bert) Constante Piazza Albert (Bert) Constante Piazza joined his beloved wife Mona in the presence of his Saviour Jesus, and surrounded by family on Friday, August 25, 2017 at the age of 90. Mourning the loss of their father are Garry (Liz), Bonnie (Alan), Jim (Patsy), Sandy (Ben), Linda, Cheryl (Todd), Rob (Kumi) and Cindy (mother of Michelle and Mike), grandchildren Nic (Laurie), Jenny (Garrett), Tyler, Jason (Julie), Michelle (Gaston), Mike (Jessi), Elizabeth, Rachel (Stephen), Amy (Joe), Gayle, Curtis (Caitlyn), Andrew (Lyndsey), Jenny (Josh), Rishelle (Sean), Amanda (Steven), Cassie (Nigel) and Toddy (Zaria) and his eighteen greatgrandchildren Wyatt, Noelle, Rory, Norah, Fiona, Mikayla, Heidi, Darin, Blaik, Lexi, Ivey, Nash, Alex, Kinsley, Ryan, Rylee, Eden and London. Also left to cherish his memory is his sister Rena as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his loving wife Mona of 65 years, his parents Benvenuto and Regina Piazza, his brothers Joe, Johnny and Frank and his sisters Mary and Amelia. Dad was born on January 24, 1927 in Walhachin, BC. There he spent his early years before moving to Kamloops with his family. He met and married his love Mona on June 16, 1951. Throughout his life, Dad worked in a variety of places— Kamloops Bakery, CP Rail (clearing the tracks on the Kettle Valley Railway) and Dawson Construction— until he found his true niche at Westcoast Transmission Company (Spectra Energy) in 1958. He retired at the age of 62, having worked there for 32 years. Dad was a true jack-of-all-trades; he loved keeping busy and was never content to just sit idle. So he began his new career doing maintenance at Aberdeen McDonalds, joining Mona who was also working there at the time.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 11:00 am at our family cabin. For directions email Cheryl at tcgrant64@gmail.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Northern Canada Evangelical Mission (ncem.ca), PO Box 3030, Prince Albert, SK S6V 7V4

Cathy will be sorely missed by many more family and friends who lived, laughed and loved with her. Many thanks and hugs go to the amazing Dr. Farren and caring staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home. A Celebration of Life for Cathy will be held at Schoening Funeral Service, 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops, BC on Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 11:00 am.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Gabra, the ER and 7 North nurses and all the caregivers who helped Carol throughout her life. Our lives have grown in ways we never could have expected, going in directions that sometimes were surprising. We never expected you to leave so soon.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Carol’s name can be made to the SPCA and BC Mental Health Foundation.

Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

January 7, 1953 – August 24, 2017

In September 1970, Dad and Mom purchased land near Mile High Lake and over the next number of years, with the help of his children, Dad built his family a log cabin from the ground up. He hand cut and peeled the logs and even fabricated the two wood stoves from scrap metal. His children and grandchildren especially have fond memories of time spent at the family cabin and many others were able to enjoy this special place, such as friends, youth groups and foreign exchange students. At the age of 73, Dad fulfilled his lifelong dream and moved to the cabin. Over the next thirteen years, Dad enjoyed cutting firewood, snowmobiling (his last ride was at 86!) and enjoying God’s creation. Dad developed a special connection with many of the area’s little forest animals such as ravens, whiskey jacks, rabbits and squirrels and he continued to use his handyman skills helping his neighbors wherever needed. Due to health reasons, Dad moved back to town where he joined Mom at Ponderosa Place, spending their remaining years together.

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!

Kardashian women give $500K to help Harvey victims

Bobs & Lolo played the BC Wildlife Park on Saturday in what was essentially the facility’s summer finale. Next up on the park’s schedule is Boo at the Zoo, slated to begin on Oct. 27. The park remains open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Kim Kardashian West and her famous siblings are donating USD $500,000 to help Harvey victims. A spokeswoman for the reality star said she and her mother and sisters have given $250,000 to the Red Cross and $250,000 to the Salvation Army. Kardashian West announced the donation on Twitter, saying, “Houston we are praying for you.’’ She used the hashtag #HoustonStrong. They are among several stars who’ve said publicly they are helping hurricane victims. Kevin Hart this week announced a $25,000 donation to the Red Cross for storm victims and called on other celebrities to do the same.

he has walked in Vancouver Fashion Week, been featured in Vogue and now Kayla McKay is moving to Los Angeles with the hopes of further growing her modelling career. The 18-year-old Kamloops resident has been modelling since she was 14, first capturing the attention of an agency on her own before gaining traction in Asian markets and, most recently, getting booked by Aston Models LA in California. “I wanted to branch out into the American market. It’s more my body type,” McKay said. “I’m only five-foot-seven, so Milan and Paris — it’s a little harder for me.” McKay’s resume is lengthy for her age, having walked in shows in the Lower Mainland and travelled overseas to get her name out there and further her experience. “I went to Taiwan for three months to work with an agency over there through my mother agency,” McKay said. “I have an agency based out of Montreal and Toronto.”

way.’ But it helps with your self confidence.

— KAYLA McKAY Kamloops model

Kayla McKay is hoping a move to Los Angeles pays off for her modelling career.

She has showcased clothing from Canadian and Asian designers. Along with Vogue, pictures of her have appeared online in Elle Canada and Salon Magazine.

It hasn’t come at the expense of her education, however. McKay attended St. Ann’s Academy before finishing high school online, in order to work

and go to school at the same time. She plans to study criminology when she moves to Los Angeles this fall. “If you love both, you want an education as well as a career,” she said. “Why can’t you do both if you work hard enough?” McKay said she has a “very unique” look, but fits into a type: blond and white. She said her attitude has paved way for the opportunities she has received so far. “You can have a gorgeous face and look amazing, but if you are disrespectful of the client or rude or not hard working, you will not get the job,” she said. Added to that, McKay has set boundaries while navigating an industry oft criticized for placing unreasonable expectations on women in regard to body image. She credits her morals for a

strict no-nudity rule and her ability to “love” herself. “I would never do anything that compromises me as a person,” she said. If anything, McKay said, modelling helped turn a shy kid into a confident woman. “A lot of people think, ‘Oh, it’s really degrading and you have to look a certain way,’” she said. “But it helps with your selfconfidence.” McKay already has some projects in the works south of the border. She will appear in the Beautiful Distraction music video for Julian Camarena and will be featured in a campaign showcasing the new season of a trendy clothing company — but she’s not allowed to discuss it until the campaign has gone public. “It’s definitely something I want to do full time,” McKay said.

Correction

Pair of exhibitions slated for Old Courthouse gallery Arnica Artist-Run Centre is presenting two exhibitions starting later this month: Futur Simple by Aimée Henny Brown and Melodies for Solo Voices by Roberto Santaguida. Common to these exhibitions are complex acts of fragmentation and reorganization. The series of collages and books, Futur Simple, is the work of Henny Brown, a Vancouverbased artist who describes her practice as interdisciplinary and project-based. Henny Brown’s collages are assembled from an eclectic mix of print material from the 1960s and 1970s, which she gathers into cohesive-yet-otherworldly composite structures that invoke the spirit of old survival guides,

spectacular surreal environments, and resilient or dynamic architecture. By borrowing print material from decades past, Henny Brown constructs and recalls possible futures in a radically shifting environment. Santaguida, creator of the film installation Melodies for Solo Voices, is a documentary filmmaker who employs an avant-garde filmmaking practice that experiments with the space of the gallery. Reflecting a transitional and highly experimental period in the artist’s work, Melodies for Solo Voices is a multi-perspective documentary that follows a group of professional singers as they individually prepare for a

In doing so, the film becomes an alternative kind of group portrait, one that shifts between the solitary focus of the individual rehearsals and orchestration of those solo voices through the filmic structure itself. Futur Simple and Melodies for Solo Voices will be at Arnica Artist-Run Centre from Sept. 29 to Nov. 4.

The Garage Sale described as a comedy with a message The Kamloops Players are back on stage in September — with the first night of their play being a fundraiser for Jessie Simpson, the Savona teen who was beaten in June 2016 and remains in hospital. Simpson was 18 when he was assaulted in the early-morning hours of June 19 outside a Brocklehurst home. Kristopher Teichrieb is charged with attempted murder and remains in custody as he awaits his trial next year. Sharon Huuaj, Kamloops Players’ treasurer and director of the upcoming play, The Garage Sale, said the crew decided to donate 100 per cent of proceeds to the Simpson family to help offset expenses. The play will open at the Stage House Theatre, 422 Tranquille Rd., on Friday, Sept. 8, with the Simpson fundraiser.

Damon goes mini in Venice opener Downsizing

JILL LAWLESS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VENICE, Italy — Downsizing has generated jumbo-sized buzz at the Venice Film Festival — not least as viewers debate how to describe it. Is it a science fiction film, a romantic comedy, a political parable, an apocalyptic thriller? Alexander Payne’s movie mixes all those elements in its story of a man, played by Matt Damon, who tries to solve his problems by shrinking himself. Payne says that despite its sci-fi premise and international canvas, Downsizing is not so different to the films he’s best known for — funny-sad stories of middle aged or Midwestern strugglers such as About Schmidt, Sideways and Nebraska. “It has the same sense of humour and basically the same tone,’’ Payne told reporters in Venice. That tone alternately puzzled and thrilled viewers in Venice, where the film has its gala premiere in the festival’s coveted opening-night spot. Several recent Venice openers, including Gravity and La La Land, have gone on to win multiple Academy Awards. Downsizing has ingredients

In Downsizing, Matt Damon’s character is shrunken to a height of five inches.

that could help it strike a similar chord with audiences and awards voters: a likable, bankable star in Damon; a strong supporting cast that includes Kristen Wiig and Christoph Waltz; and an imaginative story laced with compassion and humour. The movie applies Payne’s wry eye for human foibles to a plot that explores the power and limits of science and the threat of environmental catastrophe. The script by Payne and Jim

Taylor opens with a Norwegian scientist making a breakthrough he thinks will save humanity — a technique that can shrink people to five inches tall. That means they use a tiny fraction of the resources they once did — and need to pay less, allowing people of modest means to grow instantly rich by becoming small. The movie has fun imagining what the miniaturized world would be like, as Damon goes to

live in a luxury micro-city, a sort of retirement community for the tiny. Then it takes a serious turn to ask whether science could be humanity’s salvation, or whether stubbornly fallible human nature is likely to be our species’ undoing. Along the way, a movie that started in the familiar Payne territory of Omaha, Nebraska, takes viewers all the way to an underground bunker in a Norwegian fjord. Many will find the journey unexpected, but reviewers in Venice were mostly happy to be swept along for the ride. The Guardian called the film a “spry, nuanced, winningly digressive movie,’’ while the Hollywood Reporter said it was “captivating, funny’’ and “deeply humane.’’ Ultimately, the film rests on Payne’s knack for depicting human relationships. Damon’s Paul becomes friends with a louche European neighbour, played by Waltz, and develops feelings for Ngoc Lan, a former Vietnamese political prisoner working as a house cleaner. Actress Hong Chau (Treme, Inherent Vice) is already being talked of as a potential awards nominee for her performance as

the spirited and complex character. “This is a character that is normally in the background, that is low-status character in the culture, and not one that you typically see in the forefront of a story,’’ she said. “That was such a pleasure to be able to read on the page and then also as an actor to be able to portray.’’ Downsizing is the latest ordinary-Joe role for Damon, who exudes a likable everyman-underduress quality whether he’s action hero Jason Bourne or a stranded astronaut in The Martian. Damon said he thinks movies “are the greatest tool for empathy that we have.’’ “What I love about this — what I love about a lot of these stories that I get to help tell — is it shows a relatable character whose life is different from our own but who we find common cause with. Ultimately I think this is a beautiful and optimistic movie,” he said. “A journalist said to me, which I thought was really great: This is Alexander’s most optimistic movie, and it has the apocalypse in it. I do think at the end of the day there’s this sense that we’re all in it together.’’
