Unveiling of wildfire monument delayed ANDREA KLASSEN

STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A monument celebrating volunteer efforts during last summer’s wildfires won’t be ready by April. Instead, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District hopes to unveil a design for the $100,000 art installation planned for Sandman Centre. Allysa Gredling, executive assistant at the regional district, said the TNRD’s initial plan to have a completed monument in time for National Volunteer Week in April proved too condensed. “Just in order to give it a fairer process and give everyone a chance to get their submissions in, give our jury a chance to review them properly, the time was not realistic,” she said. The artist submission process for the monument closed at the beginning of February. About 15 artists from around the province sent in concepts.

Gredling said artists were asked to focus on volunteering in their works, but otherwise had few restrictions placed on their submissions. “We left it very openended for people to interpret that as they may and give us back what their visual representation of volunteerism looks like,” she said. Staff is now removing identifying information from artists’ proposals so they can be judged blind by a panel of seven jurors, including Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian and TNRD board chair John Ranta. “They’ll be rating it for different items related to technical aspects, how well it fits with what the request was, whether or not we think it will be a good fit in the space, that kind of thing,” she said. Five members of the region’s arts community will also sit on the panel. Members could be working artists or be involved in arts institutions.

The panel is similar to those used by the City of Kamloops to choose new public art — a five-member arts panel signed off on the nearby Rivers sculpture in the roundabout between the Sandman Hotel and Sandman Centre. Jurors will meet several times before selecting their top three submissions, Gredling said. Those artists will then be asked to produce a maquette — a miniature, three-dimensional version of their work — before a final decision is made. The TNRD hopes to unveil the winning maquette in April. Board members approved the monument last fall in recognition of residents who are estimated to have volunteered more than 75,000 hours during the 2017 wildfires, which saw residents from Cache Creek, 100 Mile House, Ashcroft, Williams Lake and other communities evacuated to Kamloops, where they were often housed at Sandman Centre.

GAMES FEVER

To celebrate the start of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games and next week’s arrival in Kamloops of the 2018 BC Winter Games, students at Bert Edwards Science and Technology School took park in Olympic-themed activities. The fun included (above) students winding their way from class to class, picking up yet more peers and torches before assembling in the gymnasium. There was also the torch relay, with by Grade 6 student Ewan Uppenborn (left) leading classmates Brandon Ford and Jonas Ens. Students and teaching staff dressed in school colours and Olympic garb, watched Olympic video clips and sang a rousing rendition of O Canada. Speaking of the Olympics, Kamloops’ own Josie Morrison was skating on the weekend in Pyeongchang. She spoke to KTW from South Korea. Turn to page A23 for the full story. DAVE EAGLES PHOTOS/KTW

Search for missing Kamloops senior continues

This is Thelma Vaughan’s Volkswagen Jetta, which was found parked near Lafarge Bridge on Wednesday, Feb. 7. If you saw this vehicle any time on Saturday, Feb. 3, or Sunday, Feb. 4, contact police at 250-314-1800.

Kamloops Mounties continue to investigate what happened to a Kamloops woman whose car was found abandoned earlier this month near the Lafarge Bridge in the east end of the city. Thelma Vaughan hasn’t been seen since Saturday, Feb. 3. Her vehicle, a blue Volkswagen Jetta, was found on Wednesday, Feb. 7, on Shuswap Road. RCMP Cpl. Jodie Shelkie said police and search crews have scoured the area multiple times, both on the ground and from above, with no success. Shelkie said ground crews and a drone were used three times, while an RCMP helicopter was twice used to search

nearby fields and the hillsides. In addition, Shelkie said, a police tracking dog has searched along the South Thompson River. Shelkie said Vaughan’s family is hopeful somebody will have information about her actions before her vehicle was parked and abandoned. “It is known that Thelma left her apartment on Saturday evening, Feb. 3, at 5:50 p.m. and appears to have driven to Shuswap Road sometime later that evening before the snow fell, as there was no snow directly under her vehicle,” Shelkie said. Vaughan, 62, is white, stands five-foot-two, weighs 130 pounds and has grey hair

and hazel eyes. Anyone with information about Vaughan’s disappearance or whereabouts is asked to call police at 250-314-1800.

Witnesses sought in fatality Police are hoping to jog the memory of witnesses to determine what happened to a man struck and killed last month on the Coquihalla Highway west of Kamloops. Morisho Kavimba, 21, was found dead on Sunday, Jan. 7, on the side of the highway, near the Trans-Canada interchange. Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said investigators believe Kavimba was in Kamloops for about three days prior to his death. He was last seen near Aberdeen Mall at about 7:45 p.m. on Jan. 7. “The RCMP are specifically interested in speaking to anyone who may have seen the victim between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Jan. 7,” she said.

“Police would like to speak to anyone who gave him a ride to the mall or if someone gave him a ride from the mall up the highway to the interchange or possibly saw him on the highway at any location.” Shelkie said investigators believe Kavimba may have been hitchhiking when he was struck. “Because he was wearing dark clothes and standing on the highway, there was no illumination. The driver of the vehicle that struck him may not have known they hit him or thought they struck something other than a vehicle,” she said. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 250-8283000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.

Unemployment rate drops

TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The unemployment rate in Kamloops dipped back into single digits in January, with the number of employed people in the city increasing by an estimated 4,200 over the previous month. Data compiled by Statistics Canada also show the city’s labour force has spiked in the last year, increasing by an estimated 10,500. The data show the unemployment rate — the percentage of people in the labour force who are not working or collecting employment insurance — last month at 9.3 for the Tournament Capital, a decrease from 10.4 in December. An estimated 70,800 people were employed in Kamloops last month, according to Statistics Canada, up from 66,600 in December. Kamloops’ unemployment rate is still up compared to the same time a year ago, however. Statistics Canada data show the unemployment rate in January 2017 was 7.7 per cent. But the number of jobs in the city has increased. In January 2017, an estimated

67,600 people in Kamloops were employed. That discrepancy is due to a significant increase in the city’s estimated labour force over the past 12 months. That increase bucks a trend in the Thompson-Okanagan region, according to Statistics Canada analyst Andrew Fields. The greater region’s labour force decreased by an estimated 4,000 in the 12 months leading up to January despite significant increases in the health-care and construction industries. “At the same time, they were offset by declines,” Fields said. “Manufacturing was down 11,000. There are also fewer people working in education services and fewer people employed in information, culture and recreation.” The unemployment rate in the Thompson-Okanagan for January was 7.2 per cent, down from 8.6 per cent a year earlier. Nationally, the economy lost 88,000 positions — all of them part-time — in January for its biggest employment decline in a single month since 2009. The dip helped push the national unemployment rate up to 5.9 per cent, from a revised 5.8 per cent the previous month.

Family Day moving in 2019 This year’s Family Day statutory holiday, which was celebrated this past Monday, was the last to be held on the second Monday of February. The provincial government has announced that, beginning next year, Family Day will fall on the third Monday of February, so it can be aligned with similar holidays across Canada and in the United States. Family Day was established under the B.C. Liberal government in 2013 following a consultation process that had recommended the holiday be on either the second or third Monday of February. The government of the day decided on the second Monday, despite the fact that day did not mesh with the holiday schedule elsewhere. The third Monday in February is a holiday in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario (Family Day), Prince Edward Island (Islander Day), Nova Scotia and Yukon (Heritage Day) and Manitoba (Louis Riel Day). In addition, 39 states in America, including Washington state, celebrate the President’s Day holiday on the third Monday of February. In announcing the change for 2019, Premier John Horgan said Family Day will now be better aligned for businesses and families. “Moving Family Day is the right thing to do for businesses small and large and is better for families who may be spread out across the country,” Horgan said. “This gives families an opportunity to schedule and spend more time with loved ones from other provinces.”

LEARNING IS THE BEE’S KNEES

The 2017 Kamloops Citizen Science Pollinator Survey found only two per cent of the pollinators were hairy bellies. As a result, the Thompson Shuswap Master Gardeners staged a workshop on the weekend at the Big Little Science Centre, where people learned what hair belly bees look like, what their needs are how to care for them. Among those at the workshop were Stacie Andriashyk and Symone Bourdon (top), checking out different bee species, (top) and Elaine Sedgman (bottom) with the Kamloops Master Gardeners.

Kamloops wants auxiliary firefighters

Parents are strongly encouraged to register children for Kindergarten in this period.

To register for September 2018, a student must be five years old by December 31, 2018. Bring your child’s original birth certificate, BC Service Card and proof of address to your neighbourhood’s catchment area school. Information on catchment areas is available on our website at www.sd73.bc.ca.

Where do you want to go?

We’ll get you there!

Kamloops Fire Rescue is looking for physically fit people to serve as auxiliary firefighters at one of three fire stations. Auxiliary firefighters are needed at Station 4 (615 Porterfield Rd., serving Westsyde), Station 5 (on Heffley Creek Road, serving Rayleigh and Heffley Creek) and Station 6 (5300 Dallas Dr., serving Dallas and Barnhartvale). The fire department is looking for candidates who live within eight kilometres of a station to minimize response times in the event of an emergency. Auxiliary firefighters support fulltime firefighter. Duties and responsibilities include responding to fires and emergencies, routine apparatus maintenance and weekly training. Interested applicants can visit

Station 1 at 1205 Summit Dr. in Sahali to pick up a comprehensive manual that outlines the criteria and testing regimen required for selection as an auxiliary firefighter. In addition, an information session will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 6 p.m. at the KFR Training Centre on Bunker Road, which is off McGill Road, west of Thompson Rivers University. Training is provided, but preference will be given to those with prior National Fire Protection Association accreditation. The deadline to apply is Friday, Feb. 23. The screening and application process will take approximately six to eight weeks, after which successful applicants will be required to attend Saturday training for several consecutive weeks.

Mounties probe shooting Portes

ouvertes Open March set for Spirit Square house en français.

Kamloops Mounties are investigating another shooting, this time in Dallas. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said a 911 call at 1:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, brought police to the 5000-block of Dallas Drive, where they found a man who had been shot numerous times.

A march to recognize, remember and honour the thousands of Indigenous women and girls (including transgender and two-spirited individual) who have gone missing or been murdered over the past 20 years will take place on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in Spirit Square on the North Shore. The march is being organized by fourth-year social work students at Thompson Rivers University, along with members of the LGBTQ2S community

Shelkie said officers administered first-aid until an ambulance arrived. The shooting victim was taken to Royal Inland Hospital, where he is being treated. He is expected to make a full recovery. “Police believe this to be a targeted attack,” Shelkie said.

and family and friends of those impacted. Organizers say the event will allow the community to have space for grieving and healing and is aimed at raising awareness about issues of violence against Indigenous women. Similar memorial walks are taking place in communities across the Canada on, or around, Feb. 14, including Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, where the first march was held in 1992.

Kamloops Mounties were at the scene of the shooting into Friday morning, collecting evidence. Anybody with information on the shooting is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-8283000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.

Organizers note a report released by the RCMP earlier this year estimates no fewer than 1,017 women and girls identified as Indigenous were murdered between 1980 and 2012 — a homicide rate roughly 4.5 times higher than that of all other women in Canada. In addition, the report states that as of November 2013, at least 105 Indigenous women and girls remained missing under suspicious circumstances or for undetermined reasons.

WELCOME CHANGE IN ICBC RULES

I

f the new ICBC rules work as intended, a fender-bender will no longer be tantamount to a meal ticket for B.C. drivers and their passengers. That’s good news for all who shell out a hefty chunk of cash every year for even the basic insurance required to operate a motor vehicle. Beginning April 1, 2019, pain and suffering payouts will be capped at $5,500. Currently, minor injury claims average $30,000, meaning some people are raking in far more than that for soft-tissue injuries. Conversely, if someone is seriously hurt or killed, they or their family will be able to claim more — the limit has been doubled to $300,000 from $150,000 — to help cover costs of care, recovery or funerals. That’s fair. What might (but probably shouldn’t) come as a surprise is that only slightly more than half of the money won from ICBC actually goes to the claimant. According to information shared by MoveUP, the union representing ICBC employees, research conducted by Ernst & Young based on 2015 numbers and released in 2017 shows 57 per cent, or $1.16 billion, of the roughly $2 billion spent on injury claims goes to the injured party/claimant. The remaining $840 million was spent on legal fees, litigation disbursements, medical reports and staff adjudication costs. Capping payouts for less serious injuries is a good first step toward stanching the bleeding at ICBC. But what seems to be missing here — as part of the Crown corporation’s effort to address its projected $1.3 billion deficit — is any reference to harsher financial penalties for chronically dangerous or careless drivers. High-risk demographics (sorry, males under 25) and people with consistently bad driving records are already being dinged with higher rates, but ideally, penalties for serious and repeat offenders should be high enough to force them off the roads and into a transit bus. Driving, for the rest of us, would become safer and more affordable.

When ‘privacy’ gets silly

P

rivacy is a serious issue. There’s no doubt it needs to be acknowledged and respected because, without it, people’s actions, decisions and even situations they find themselves in can become the source of judgment or ridicule. It’s something a journalist takes seriously because when we put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard, we can create something that can have an unexpected impact on a person. It’s one of the reasons why organizations representing journalists in this country, including my own Canadian Association of Journalists, are deep in discussions about a suggestion by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada that we need a “right to be forgotten” policy that can protect Canadians with respect to their online reputations. But there are times when the definition of privacy — usually being made by a governmental body of some sort — starts to become silly. Take, for example, the recent parent complaint to School District 73 about an alleged assault at an elementary school. As it played out, the original reporter with Global TV did not identify the mom or school. The video interview had her in shadows. Even though we also knew the name of the school and the mother involved, the KTW story did not include identifiers. Those decisions were made to ensure the children involved did not become objects of

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL public judgment. We did so even though we knew the school’s name had entered the public realm once the principal sent a letter to parents of students at the school, with a general overview of what happened, what the school did and an assurance everyone was doing all they could to maintain a safe school environment. Mount Royal University journalism professor Sean Holman studies privacy and freedom of information laws. He said invoking privacy to not name the school, staff or family involved benefits the students involved and the reputation of the school. But without transparency, people cannot make an informed judgment and take required actions. In the SD73 case, when asked how the district actually separated the students after the incident was reported, the district again invoked privacy and wouldn’t say if they were in different parts of the same classroom, in other classroom or in the principal’s office.

At that point, it really wasn’t about the kids involved, about the angry mom or about the principal, whose actions were being questioned. It wasn’t about casting doubt on the environment at the school. At that point, Holman suggested, the lack of transparency was more likely invoked to protect the district from revealing how it handled the situation in that one way. Why should this matter? Privacy, transparency and freedom of information are issues that affect how society moves forward. The average person gives up much privacy to the government so it can make decisions designed to keep the country and its people strong. Government, however, prefers to limit its transparency so those same average people can’t see exactly what’s going on. Absent that freedom of information, it’s difficult for people to make informed decisions — and, in this case, there’s an entire school body of families who needed to know how their school and the district administration keeps alleged victims and perpetrators in an assault safe. A simple answer would not have identified any of the children involved, nor the school, nor the principal, nor the teacher, nor the parents. It would have simply provided some assurance to the rest of us that the matter was taken seriously from start to finish. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @mdalebass

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

POLITICAL FRICTION KEEPS US INVOLVED

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Editor: Re: Christopher Foulds’ column of Feb. 7 (‘Will character ever defeat crass ambition?’): I guess there are enough examples coming from south of the border these days for our local editorial commentaries to fall victim to all that is nasty, dishonest and selective about political reporting — case in point Foulds’ character assassination of Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone. Perhaps he has never gotten his hands dirty working on a campaign to observe the endless hours of door knockings, meetings and forums a candidate must commit to in order to become elected. I would like to remind him that it is no coincidence Stone

RE: PHOTO: WELCOMING MR. JUSTICE LEONARD MARCHAND:

was elected by wide margins in the last two provincial elections based on hard work, commitment and a forward-thinking agenda. His character and values inspired many of us to work on his behalf and I have no regrets having done so. To sully his reputation with such a mean-spirited column betrays Foulds’ own poverty of spirit and exposes his own political bias. Politicians are no better or worse than the rest of us and should be, at the very least, respected for putting themselves out there to try and make things better for all of us. Show me a politician who doesn’t want to be elected and I’ll show you a loser, but “crass

ambition” goes way too far. Certainly decisions are made in hindsight that prove problematic, but an intention to deceive just does not hit the mark. I have long held that a healthy level of disdain against the opposition is very much a part of the political game. It is what makes us all get out there and vote to support our candidates. I guess we should all be forgiven for believing the B.C. Liberal Party was literally robbed of its victory by one seat in the May 2017 election. Seems enough to stoke the fires of passion in any hotblooded political observer, as it does in me. Foulds’ sanctimonious

dribble prescribing that we all get along and work together requires mutual respect, something he has gone a long way to ignore in his commentary. I have come to believe it is the very friction that is at play in any political forum that keeps us all engaged, enraged or complacent. I’ll take engaged and enraged any day. As for Stone’s character, it needs no defenders for he remains as grounded and respected by all those who know him as he ever was. Hiding behind a byline and sitting in judgment of those out there in the trenches is not what unbiased reporting is about. Joan McNamee Kamloops

ELECTORAL REFORM IS THE ONLY FAIR WAY FORWARD Editor: Re: Christopher Foulds’ column of Jan. 31 on electoral reform (‘50 per cent plus one works’) and Ian MacKenzie’s letter of the same date on the same topic (‘In elections, all votes should count’): The biggest no-no in the House of Commons is to call a fellow member a liar. Thank heavens for Foulds for pointing out Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lied about electoral reform when Trudeau was

campaigning in 2015. Lying to the people of Canada should bring significant consequences, yet publicly hardly a word of rebuke has been uttered. One consequence is this voter is now decidedly antiLiberal and considering total disengagement. Thank you for publicly supporting a 50 per cent plus one standard for the electoral referendum, to be held later this year in B.C.

Now is the time for dissatisfied and disenfranchised voters to vote for our own benefit. Can Foulds please explain to voters why the media is so reluctant to say almost anything in favour of electoral reform? Electoral reform will still mean advertising revenue and the media will always have influence in the corridors of power. Letter writer MacKenzie mentioned how opponents of

reform use the term “complicated.” This usage of the word is a calculated implication that simple-minded voters are only able to use a simple voting system like first-past-the-post. The voice before us can be presented with two equations: 40=60=100 or 40=40=40. Which gives fair results, from the perspective of a voter? Ray Jones Kamloops

OPINION Letter from a newbie

Ugh. No thanks. I’d be terrible at that,” said the woman at the bank. This was last August. We were talking about my recent announcement to run for a spot on city council in the September 2017 byelection. “It’s true,” she said. “I don’t want to think about everybody else. I’m too focused on my own stuff.” She gets points for self-awareness. The woman didn’t want to run. So, why did I think I had the guts, skills and gumption to run? I wanted to help. I had, and still have, a strong desire to make our city — a city I love — even better. I was a one-time Vancouver resident and, in 2011, went in search of a place to live where real estate prices weren’t ridiculous, where people on the street didn’t look at you strangely when you said hello, where there was a reasonable number of services, amenities and room to start new things. I didn’t know it, but I was looking for life in an unpretentious, growing, mid-sized city. I found it in Kamloops and, after six years here, serving on council seemed a way to

KATHY SINCLAIR

View from

CITY HALL pay it forward. I like people — hearing what they have to say, setting mutual goals and being part of a team that sees projects to fruition. I see potential in our city that’s on the brink of realization — in business, tourism, education and more. Working with various volunteer and non-profit groups had given me opportunities to find common ground in conflict, stretch my leadership skills and, most of all, listen. I hadn’t set out to be a politician (does anyone?), but I filed my papers and was elected a few weeks later. In the four months since I took my oath of office, I’ve learned we can make some of the people happy some of the time, but not everyone. That’s been a tough lesson and one I’m still learning. I’ve learned that councillors are expected to be (or become)

experts on everything from sewer systems to urban development, from law enforcement to social programs, from parks to recreational cannabis zoning (yes, that’s coming soon). I’ve had plenty of humbling moments and that is as it should be. I’ve participated in dozens of meetings — not just the council proceedings you see on TV, but committee meetings and coffee with constituents, neighbourhood associations, business owners and non-profit groups. And let’s not forget the reading: receiving a (sometimes 350page) agenda package on a Friday afternoon in preparation for a Tuesday meeting can be a full weekend’s work. We’ve all got other lives, jobs and/or businesses and, at times, it’s a challenging balance. Once in a while, in the minutiae of reviewing minutes and development-permit applications, approving wording changes to bylaws and day-long budget meetings, you lose sight of what drew you to the work in the first place. That’s when the great moments sustain you. Giving high-fives to graduating kids at a martial-arts school, seeing how our water goes from river to tap and

being part of a team that is united in its resolve to provide affordable housing for all Kamloops citizens have been just a few highlights. It can be tough work, but it’s an honour. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day: Toronto resident Lindsay ZierVogel has launched The Love Lettering Project, encouraging that city’s residents to write brief missives of appreciation to the place in which they live. The letters are then left in public places for others to find. The idea? We all know there’s always room for improvement in our cities, but when we focus on what’s working, it can change how we interact with them — and each other. Don’t be too surprised if you find a few of these around town: “Dear Kamloops, I didn’t know much about you before I moved here, but now I can’t imagine being anywhere else. Thanks for giving me a home.” Kathy Sinclair is a Kamloops councillor. Council columns appear monthly in KTW and online at kamloops thisweek.com.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

FURIOUS WITH B.C. NDP’S POSTURING Editor: I respect the B.C. Wine Institute’s position to urge both Alberta and B.C. governments to immediately enter negotiations to end the Alberta boycott of B.C. wine due to the B.C. provincial government’s opposition to the federally approved Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. The wine institute uses nice words. Truthfully, though, it is just mealy-mouth verbiage. I am furious with the B.C. government for its dramatic political posturing on the pipeline issue and I don’t blame Alberta for taking retaliatory measures. Of course Alberta intends to hit us in the pocketbook, where

it hurts. But that is exactly what the NDP dough heads in Victoria started. Unfortunately, our industry is the target. This is a perfect example of the ludicrous situation that permits no free trade between provinces. The wine institute should use this as an example of why the archaic laws and regulations that prohibit free movement of goods need to be done away with. Next it will be cars from Ontario. Perhaps Alberta will stop refined gasoline from reaching B.C. and let the Victoria bastards freeze in the dark. Jake Ootes Celista Estate Winery

NDP delivers speech from throne GOVERNMENT FOCUS IS ON HOUSING, CHILD CARE AND AFFORDABILITY CANADIAN PRESS

VICTORIA — British Columbia’s New Democrats say their quest to make life more affordable for residents involves making the largestever investments in housing and child care. In its speech from the throne on Tuesday, the minority government said its ultimate goal is affordability for

B.C. residents. The speech outlining the government’s plans, read by Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon, said it will move to address housing demand and stabilize B.C.’s out-of-control real estate and rental markets. The government plans to take measures to ensure people who seek to profit from B.C.’s real estate market will also contribute

to housing solutions. The speech said legislation will be introduced to crack down on tax fraud, tax evasion and money laundering in B.C.’s real-estate market. It said the government will start the journey this year to affordable, quality child care by moving to convert unlicensed spaces to licensed, regulated care, allowing more parents to benefit from savings

provided by the government. “Safe, affordable, licensed child care will become B.C.’s standard, giving parents the peace of mind they need and quality care they can rely on,’’ Guichon said in the legislature. The speech also said the government will pursue its innovation goals with plans to create 2,900 new technology related spaces at colleges and universities throughout B.C.

Kelowna West voters go to polls in byelection BLACK PRESS

Some voters in the Okanagan will cast ballots Wednesday to determine the Kelowna West seat in Victoria. A byelection in the riding was called last month by Premier John Horgan. The riding’s seat was left empty after Christy Clark quit politics in August. Horgan, who had until Feb. 4 to call the byelection, has said he wants an MLA in place for the riding in time to debate the provincial budget, which will be handed down later this month. Candidates include former Liberal MLA Ben Stewart. former NDP candidate Shelley Cook — Clark’s runner up in last May’s provincial election — as well as Robert Stupka of the B.C. Green Party and Libertarian Kyle Geronazzo.

OTTAWA — Jody Wilson-Raybould doubled down Tuesday on her controversial reaction to the Colten Boushie verdict, saying a federal justice minister should be responsive to Canadians who speak out and protest perceived injustices in the legal system. Wilson-Raybould defended last week’s comments on Twitter, which came after Saskatchewan farmer Gerald Stanley, 56, was acquitted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Boushie, 22, a member of Red Pheasant First Nation. “As a country, we can and must do better,’’ Wilson-Raybould tweeted, prompting charges from opposition MPs and legal experts alike that she was straying too far into the independent territory of Canada’s judicial system.

COMMUNITY BROWN MARMORATED STINK BUG

EUROPEAN CHAFER BEETLE

EUROPEAN FIRE ANTS

PAVEMENT ANT ASIAN MULTI-COLOURED LADYBUG

FREE PUBLIC PRESENTATION ON THURSDAY, FEB. 15

The number of invasive insects in the Kamloops area is growing JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Rob Higgins is keeping an eye on invasive insects in the region. The Thompson Rivers University professor and entomologist will be speaking about identified critters not native to the Kamloops area during a Thursday Kamloops Naturalist Club presentation at Heritage House in Riverside Park. “It is useful for people to have an idea about what’s turning up,” Higgins said. “When we get some new invasives, sometimes it’s not great when you underestimate them.” Higgins has his eyes on the European chafer beetle, which has been a problem in the Lower Mainland for the past decade, causing significant lawn damage. The damaged is caused by the beetle grubs, which feed on grass roots and cause them to die. The grubs are large, so they are also easily spotted by birds, which attack the lawn to get at the grubs. Add in some skunks and racoons and a well-kept lawn can quickly be torn apart. “In Vancouver, you can go to bed with a lawn and wake up in the morning to find it

essentially Rototillered,” Higgins said. Raccoons and skunks are being spotted more frequently in the Kamloops area, he noted. Other insects on Higigns’ radar include the Asian multi-coloured ladybug, which just turned up in the last couple years in the River City. “That’s a lady bug that tends to move into homes in fairly large numbers,” Higgins said. “They move under siding.” Higgins found two of them in his Aberdeen house, but they have also been found in Barnhartvale and near Kamloops Airport. The main problem with them is the large numbers in which they turn up. When attempting to eradicate the ladybugs, they can exude an oil substance that stains carpets and window sidings. “You have to be a little careful,” Higgins said. “If you use a rag, you’ll end up smearing this material.” Pavement ants have also become widespread in Kamloops, with Higgins noting their ability to nest in “just about everything” and get into homes. “I received some from a property owner in Kamloops just a couple weeks ago,” Higgins said.

One invasive that has been discovered in Chase and Kelowna is also on Higgins’ list. The brown marmorated stink bug attacks plants, extensively feeding on gardens. He expects it to cause problems for the average home gardeners, but also for orchards and vineyards in the Okanagan. Meanwhile, the European fire ant, which has been found in Naramata in the South Okanagan and essentially renders lawns unusable, has not come to Kamloops. Higgins doesn’t expect to see them in the city as they require a wetter climate. They have been found in large numbers in the Lower Mainland. “We’re a fairly dry habitat,” he said. When invasive insects are identified quickly, they can be controlled before getting out of hand. Higgins said. Because most of what he and the Invasive Species Council of B.C. learns about invasive insects comes from homeowners, it’s important for residents to know what’s creeping and crawling around them. “Some of them can be quite damaging,” Higgins said. “That’s the main issue.” Higgins’ free talk is open to the public. It begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Heritage House, 100 Lorne St.

COMMUNITY

Celebrate International Mother Language Day ANDREA KLASSEN STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops’ Bangladesh Cultural Association wants to remind people that language has power. “Language is related to culture,” said general secretary Musfiq Rahman. “And when language is taken away, the culture is gone from the whole mix.” Bengali speakers have a special reminder of that fact. In 1952, when the government of Pakistan tried to change the language of governance in the country to Urdu, Bengali speakers — who were the majority in eastern Pakistan — protested, arguing their language should also have official status. During demonstrations at the University of Dhaka on Feb. 21, police opened fire on protesters, killing a number of students. The deaths prompted further action, which eventually led to official status for the Bengali language.

A HAND UP FROM HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

Other siblings Forrest, Kalista and Jacob were at school when this photo was taken. RIGHT: Karen Watson (left) and daughter-in-law Krystine Watson also took a tour of their home with siblings William, Abigail, Elinore and Gracelynn. Dad Jeremy was at work when this photo was taken. Habitat for Humanity Kamloops said both partner families have completed the mandatory 500 hours of sweat equity in record time and should be in their new homes by early May. Since being selected in February 2017 to live in their new homes, each family has completed the required sweat equity hours, equating to more than three months of full-time work. Sweat equity is the volunteer work future Habitat homeowners devote to helping to build their own homes. It is a central principle in Habitat’s mission of building community and partnering with families to provide a hand up, not a hand out. “Providing the opportunity for our future homeowners to work alongside those that are volunteering is one of the most unique, empowering and rewarding aspects of Habitat for Humanity,” said Kim Cassar Torreggiani, executive director of Habitat for Humanity Kamloops. Habitat families receive an affordable and sustainable no-interest, no down payment mortgage, with monthly payments set at 30 per cent of gross income (which includes property taxes).

FINANCIAL MATTERS Saving And Managing Money

A UNIQUE STRATEGY TO KICKSTART A FINANCIAL FUTURE

HOW PERMANENT LIFE INSURANCE CAN BENEFIT A CHILD OR GRANDCHILD.

WHEN CAN POLICY OWNERSHIP TRANSFER TAXFREE?

CHILDREN ARE FULL OF IMMEASURABLE POTENTIAL – but they often need financial resources to make their dreams come true. Aspiring professionals need to finance years of schooling. Future entrepreneurs need start-up capital. Everybody needs a home, and real estate doesn’t come cheap.

For the transfer of a permanent life insurance policy’s ownership to qualify as a tax-free rollover, the Canada Revenue Agency requires that:

There are many ways to help build a foundation for a child’s or grandchild’s financial future. One innovative strategy is to purchase insurance that increases in value over time. This approach uses a permanent life insurance policy to facilitate the tax-efficient transfer of wealth between generations. HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

- Purchase a permanent life insurance policy on the life of a child or grandchild - As the owner, choose to top up the premiums to build cash value

• The life insured must be the policy owner’s child, step-child, grandchild or great-grandchild • There must be only one life insured at the time of the ownership transfer

NEXT WEEK:

• The transfer must take place for no consideration • The transfer cannot happen through a will Note that the child or grandchild who becomes the new owner does not have to be the same child or grandchild whose life is insured, which provides additional planning flexibility.

- Transfer ownership of the policy to the child or grandchild at or after age 18 As long as certain specific Canada Revenue Agency requirements are met (see sidebar next page), the transfer can qualify as a tax-free rollover. After the transfer, the child or grandchild can name a new beneficiary and access the cash value to meet current or future cash needs, such as paying for post-secondary education or purchasing a new home. Provided that funds are withdrawn after the child or grandchild turns 18, any policy gain is taxed in that young adult’s hands – not in the hands of the former owner. GET PLANNING FLEXIBILITY

Many people accumulate money to leave their children or grandchildren by investing in a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) or a Tax- Free Savings Account (TFSA), or some other, taxable investment. These investments may have strict contribution limits or may not provide much flexibility. But for those with excess wealth, there is an additional option. By purchasing a permanent life insurance policy, the parent or grandparent has more flexibility to allocate excess wealth towards the policy’s cash value. And the cash value grows within a tax-deferred environment. SET YOUNG PEOPLE ON THE ROAD TO FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE

For parents and grandparents who have accumulated more money than they need to finance their own lifestyle goals, building cash value within a permanent life insurance policy makes it possible to transfer wealth to a child or grandchild tax-efficiently. Even better, it allows parents and grandparents to see their gift in action – helping a loved one realize ambitions, hopes and dreams. And for the child or grandchild, after ownership transfers, the insurance can become a solid foundation for a comprehensive financial plan that protects his or her family and continues to build cash value into the future. Your advisor can help you determine if this strategy is right for you, and how it may complement other elements of your family’s financial planning. Keep in mind that it’s often best to purchase a permanent life insurance policy early in a child’s or grandchild’s life because this gives the cash value the longest possible time to grow before it’s needed.

BC Hydro brings back payment program

(NO LONGER) MADE IN CHINA Recyclables piling up as door to Far East market closes ANDREA KLASSEN STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Recycling from the Thompson-Nicola Regional District is starting to pile up at a sorting facility in Kamloops as new import rules in China have left its contractor with few places to sell the materials it collects. At the end of 2017, China banned most imports of foreign recyclables in an effort to focus on waste produced by its own residents. The country had been the largest world market for plastics and other recycled materials. The move hasn’t affected the City of Kamloops, which has a contract with Recycle BC, an organization funded by producers of paper goods and packaging, which is charged with keeping those products out of landfills. Earlier this year, Recycle BC told KTW it already processes most of the recycling it collects within the province, noting high collection standards mean it is able to sell other materials in a wider variety of markets.

However, Bill Kershaw, Area O director for the TNRD, said the rest of the region, including Merritt and Chase, doesn’t have an agreement with Recycle BC and had been relying on the Chinese market. “They’ve put the restrictions so high on what they’re going to import that it’s almost impossible to do it. We’ve just got to sit down and find the alternatives,” he said. Recycling company Emterra is stockpiling material it can’t sell off and the price it is charging to the regional district for services is on the rise. Jake Devlin, the regional district’s environmental services manager, said the TNRD was paying Emterra $91 per metric tonne of material in June before rates started to rise. It now pays $210 per tonne, a increase of 130 per cent. If the region can’t find a new market and Emterra runs out of space at its Valleyview plant, Kershaw said there may be few options for the recycling. “We would hate to do it, but the end result would be we would have to put it back into the garbage, which we would

hate to do,” he said. “The solid waste group is working on options, so, hopefully, they can come up with something else.” Devlin said staff has spoken to other recycling processors in the region, but they are all grappling with the same issue, as is much of North America. He said signing onto Recycle BC appears to be the regional district’s best option and the one its board of directors has instructed it to pursue. “We’re actively in discussions and negotiations with them and are hoping to initiate that at some point in the near future,” Devlin said. Alan Langdon, spokesman for Recycle BC, said the TNRD should soon be covered by the program. China’s ban on most foreign recyclables has sent communities across the country looking for new markets. In January, the City of Calgary reported it had stockpiled more than five-million kilograms of recycled waste since China began turning away its shipments in October.

It’s your money and our reputation. We take both seriously.

BC Hydro is bringing back its winter payment-plan program to help customers manage their bills during continued colder-than-average temperatures. The plan gives customers the option to spread winter payments over a sixmonth period. The winter billing period runs from Dec. 1, 2017 to Mar. 31, 2018. Customers who would like participate can call 1–800–BCHYDRO (2249376). “Cold temperatures across the province drive up electricity usage, resulting in higher BC Hydro bills that can be difficult for families to manage alongside other household expenses,” said Chris O’Riley, BC Hydro’s president and COO. “Our meteorologists are predicting colder-than-average temperatures will continue over the next of couple of months and we want to provide customers with help to manage their payments.” Residential energy consumption increases, on average, by 88 per cent in the colder, darker months — late fall and winter. Winter got off to a cold start in early November, with Kelowna, Vernon, Salmon Arm, Princeton, Penticton, Campbell River, Tofino, Whistler and Hope breaking cold-temperature records. Cold weather in the second half of December led to peak electricity demand above the previous 10-year average. BC Hydro is also increasing funding for its low-income conservation programs by $2.2 million for a total of $10 million over the next three years. The low-income programs provide eligible customers with energy savings kits, which include a number of simple, easy-to-install products, including energy-efficient LED light bulbs and weather stripping. More than 100,000 kits have been distributed since 2008.

Downtown hands out awards BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION ALSO ELECTS NEW BOARD The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association has elected a new board of directors and has handed out awards, all of which took place at the association’s recent annual general meeting. The Downtown Leadership Award, created to recognize ongoing leadership of, and dedication to, downtown Kamloops, was presented to Christina Grono of The Art We Are Café at 246 Victoria St. In honouring Grono, the association stated: “A Kamloops native, Christina is the creator of the Art We Are Cafe. “She opened the cafe almost 10 years ago and has loved watching the downtown core evolve. “Christina grew this successful business from a small second floor artist’s gallery into the eclectic café-gallery we see today. She not only promotes healthy lifestyle choices with the delish menu at Art We Are, but supports local artists by offering up the walls to display art for sale and offering up the cafe for live music. “People love the vibe in there and Christina is always lovely and welcoming. Very much a large part of the growing downtown atmosphere.” The KCBIA also handed out inaugural B2B Kudowards, which were created to recognize businesses for making outstanding contributions to the downtown

Will legal pot kill black market? CANADIAN PRESS

From texting a local dealer to dropping into a neighbourhood dispensary or ordering online, Canada’s black market for recreational marijuana has seen significant changes in recent years. It will see more as the country hurtles toward a new world of legalization this summer. What does seem clear, however, is that the illegal market is unlikely to disappear in a puff of smoke come legalization day, which is set for July 1. “There’s a huge, complex system out there operating in the world that has been delivering excellent product to people at reasonable prices for 40 years now,” said Donald MacPherson, executive director of the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition, an organization based out of Simon Fraser University that advocates for evidencebased policy-making and harm-reduction strategies. “It’s really the degree to which the regulated system can, over a period of years, encroach on as much of that pre-existing market as possible — that is the key question.” Talking to users quickly reveals three major strands that make up the current system, start-

ing with the traditional approach: knowing a guy who knows a guy who gets you your pot. It’s familiar, it’s trusted, it feels safe. More recently, streetlevel dispensaries have offered a somewhat normal retail store-front experience, though some offer only delivery. Perhaps the biggest change has been in what appears to be a very Canadian phenomenon: the burst of website-based mail-order marijuana suppliers, or MOMs as they are known. A plethora of websites now feature different cannabis products along with prices and, in some cases, testimonials, contests, specials, and freebies. Most ask for proof of age in the form of an uploaded ID document — 18 or 19 is generally minimum — and payment takes place via Interac. The vacuumpacked product is shipped to the buyer via Canada Post or courier. Francois, 34, an IT professional in Quebec City, said he now buys exclusively online. “The convenience factor is what brought me there,” said Francois, who, like other users interviewed for this article, only wants his first name used.

“It’s delivered to your doorstep. It’s super easy, it’s super discreet.” Marie-Helene, 26, a journalist in Montreal who smokes recreationally most evenings and weekends, said she doesn’t expect much will change for her postlegalization. She plans to stick with buying from a guy she knows who sells medical-grade weed. She trusts him and she enjoys the personal touch — he knows what strains she likes — and what she calls their “professionalbusiness relationship.” “It probably sounds silly, [but] it’s the same thing as people who enjoy buying stuff in stores — because it’s customer experience.” Robert, 55, an IT professional based in St.

Catharines, Ont., a recreational user for decades, said he now has a medical prescription and can avoid a black market he believes was tied to organized crime. The illegal market is doomed over time, he said, because every gram sold legally is a gram the black market won’t need to grow. “Most of my friends can’t wait to purchase legally and are quite jealous that I am currently able to do that,” Robert said. “Friends who have more libertarian leanings swear they will never buy from the Ontario government, [but] bet that changes. “People are lazy and follow the path of least resistance, so if they can buy a couple grams in the same shopping plaza that

they are grocery shopping, they are going to do that.” Statistics Canada data indicate about 12 per cent of Canadians ages 15 and older — or 3.6 million of us — reported in 2015 having used cannabis in the previous year, with 840,000 saying they used it most every day. Robert, however, said he thinks governments have hugely underestimated the prevalence of use and the Ontario government’s plan, for example, to start out with 40 retail outlets is laughable. “People don’t honestly answer surveys about sex and drugs, so nobody really understands how big the market will be,” Robert said. “I predict massive lines for legal weed next year.”

VALENTINE’S DAY

Many options to celebrate a flowering love Flowers are popular come Valentine’s Day, as various blooms can signify love and affection. Roses are one of the most popular flowers to gift on Valentine’s Day. Some gift-givers may want to deviate from the standard bouquet of roses and offer flowers that are more in tune with their recipients’ preferences. Flowers have long been used to convey certain feelings in many cultures. Folklore, poetry and mythologies have played a role in defining the various meanings associated with certain blooms. Understanding the meanings behind various flowers can help Valentine’s Day celebrants more accurately express their feelings toward the special people in their lives. Here is what certain blooms may symbolize: • Amaryllis: This flower symbolizes splendid beauty and can be given to indicate worth beyond beauty. • Aster: The popular aster symbolizes wisdom and devotion. • Bird of Paradise: The inter-

esting shape and rarity of these blooms symbolizes joyfulness and magnificence. It can be an exciting flower and one that evokes feelings of anticipation. • Black-eyed Susan: These vibrant blooms represent justice and can be ideal for the person who works in the legal profession.

• Carnation: A less expensive alternative to roses, carnations represent pride and beauty. Furthermore, the colors of carnations represent different meanings. Red symbolizes love, while pink is for a mother’s love and white represents innocence and pure love.

• Daisy: Innocence and purity are the meanings behind the yellow and white daisy. This can be the perfect pick for new, young love. • Freesia: Those wanting to evoke passionate feelings can choose freesia, which is also said to mean “joy.” • Hydrangea: Hydrangeas sym-

bolize heartfelt emotions and can be used to express gratitude for being understood. This may be the perfect “making amends” flower. • Lilac: Couples seeking tranquility and passion can turn to lilacs. The calming lavender hues also can be a welcome change in floral arrangements. • Rose: Of course, no Valentine’s flower roundup would be complete without roses. Roses represent love and passion, and, like carnations, their colors symbolize different things. Red roses represent desire, pink roses suggest happiness and white roses symbolize worthiness. Avoid yellow roses, which suggest fading love. • Zinnia: Zinnias symbolize thoughts of distant friends and can make a thoughtful friendship arrangement to send to a faraway comrade. Flowers are part of many Valentine’s Day celebrations. By learning the meanings behind different flowers, men and women can make their feelings better known.

VALENTINE’S DAY

THE MANY WAYS LOVE AFFECTS THE BODY

L

ove is at the forefront of couples’ minds during the month of February, thanks in large part to Valentine’s Day. For centuries, poets have espoused the virtues of love, while songwriters often look to love and heartache as their subject matter. It’s easy to overlook the fact the heart and brain are parts of the body when considering the effects of being in love. While a large part of the reactions that occur are emotional in nature, being in love also has a profound physical effect on the body. Scientists have studied chemicals that flood the brain when love is in the air, finding that some can affect personal attachment, pleasure and well-being. So there are reasons why pulses race and palms sweat when people are in love. Here are some chemical players in the love equation. • Dopamine: The medical resource Health says dopamine is the brain’s pleasure chemical and it is released during pleasurable

activities. When one falls in love, he or she feels elated and energetic because of the release of dopamine. Biological anthropologists say the release of dopamine can lead to intense focus on the object of one’s desire and influence goaloriented behavior. • Adrenaline and norepinephrine: These chemical messengers cause anxiety to rise and the fight or flight response to kick in. These substances also contribute to a racing heart and sweaty hands. Butterflies in the stomach and nervousness are subtle clues that there is genuine attraction for a person. • Oxytocin: Oxytocin is known as the love hormone, according to University of Birmingham researchers. Oxytocin, researchers found, produces some of the same symptoms found while indulging in alcohol. These include feeling less inhibited, an increased willingness to take risks and calmness. Oxytocin also helps couples bond by promoting intimacy,

according to research associates at Rutgers University. • Testosterone: Testosterone is largely considered a male hormone, but it is also present in females. Testosterone rises during romantic love and it can increase sexual desire in a partner. Health also states that testosterone may be present in male saliva and transferred to a partner through kissing, further revving up intimate feelings. • Pheromones: Although they are only believed, and not proven, to play a part in romantic attraction, pheromones do garner significant attention. Some theorize that these chemical messengers can change body chemistry so those in love can actually “smell” their romantic partners. It may help explain why women may wear their partner’s shirt to bed or a man may hold on to a scarf or a pillow his lover has used. Love can have a dramatic impact on the human body and chemicals play a larger role than many may know.

can be altered for the semifinal and final rounds, should Canada qualify. Don’t expect too many training updates on Morrison’s Twitter account this week. “The distraction of social media is really interesting,” Morrison said. “I feel like it’s a different distraction than other athletes have had to deal with in previous Olympics just because it does play such a role in the Games. “You can so easily get sucked into that stuff. I know what I’m here to do. It’s to skate, not to read about myself or other athletes online.” Morrison did Tweet last Friday about the surreal experience of walking into the opening ceremony with husband Denny, who is also on the Canadian speed skating team. “It was such a punch in my face to be like, ‘I’m at the Olympics,’” Morrison said on Monday.

“And it was a great punch. “Wearing the Leaf, it doesn’t get old. I’m so so proud to be representing Canada.” Morrison was asked about the stomach flu virus that is spreading in PyeongChang. She said hand sanitizer is everywhere and Canadian athletes are taking every precaution. And what about that altercation between a Canadian athlete and an Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR) in a cafeteria? Is there widespread animosity toward the Russians amid the doping scandal? “I’m really just focusing on myself right now,” Morrison said. “I don’t see any of that happening.” Folks in Kamloops who woke up at 4:30 a.m. on Monday (the Family Day holiday in B.C.) to watch Morrison were left disappointed. TSN opted to stay with the mixed-curling semifinal between Switzerland and the OAR until its conclusion. By the time it was over, Morrison had already finished. Alarms will be set even earlier for the team pursuit qualification event, which is set to begin at 3 a.m. on Feb. 19. “Today I was just focusing on my preparation leading into the race and my mindset in the race because that’s what I want to focus on for the team pursuit,” Morrison said. “It was great preparation for that.” Three Canadian women skated in the 1,500m on Monday. Brianne Tutt (1:58.77) was 15th, Kali Christ (1:59.42) was 19th and Spence (1:59.77 was 21st.

Denny places 13th

Josie’s husband, Denny Morrison, placed 13th in the men’s 1,500m on Tuesday. The 32-year-old from Fort St. John survived two brushes with death on his road to the Games. Denny was involved in a motorcyle crash in 2015 and had a stroke in 2016. He won silver and bronze four years ago in Sochi. Denny may skate in the team pursuit later in the Games.

ll eyes were on Josie Morrison on Monday at the Gangneung Oval in South Korea. Just in case the pressure of her Olympic Winter Games debut wasn’t ratcheted up enough, the 24-year-old speed skater from Kamloops was the only athlete to race by herself in the women’s 1,500-metre long-track event. With 27 entrants, there were enough for 13 pairs and one black sheep who lost a draw before the race. Morrison was the lonely lamb and she led off the competition. “It was a little bit nerve-racking to be by myself and to start off the Olympics that way, but it was great,” Spence told KTW after the race. “I was on the line and I was smiling. “I love to smile on the line, but I couldn’t stop smiling. I think I was smiling through the whole race.” With no one to chase or to push her to the finish line, Spence grinned her way to a 21st-place result with a time of 1:59.77, clocking in 5.42 seconds behind gold-medal winner Ireen Wust of the Netherlands. Sticky ice helped lead to times that were well shy of the Olympic record (1:53.51, Jorien Ter Mors, Netherlands, Sochi 2014) and nowhere near the world record (1:50.85, Heather Bergsma, U.S., 2015). Morrison’s time was 2.07 seconds slower than her personal best, set in Calgary in December. Wust’s gold-medal winning mark of 1:54.35 was more than two seconds slower than her PB, set in 2013. What Morrison was focused on heading into the 1,500m was preparing for her bread-and-butter event, the team pursuit that begins on Feb. 19. “The ice is really sticky out there,” Morrison said. “It makes it hard on the last lap to keep your speed going. A lot of girls dropped significant amounts on the last lap, but I held mine pretty well and I’m really happy with that. It’s a very big positive heading into the team pursuit because it is a longer race.” Morrison’s second split, in her first full 400m lap, was 29.70 seconds. She posted a time of 32.06 seconds in her final 400m lap. That is a difference of 2.36 seconds. For an example of why Morrison is encouraged by her strategy, look no further than world-record holder Bergsma, whose final 400m split was nearly five seconds slower than her second split. She placed eighth. “With the ice conditions and how sticky it is, I think our team pursuit has a great advantage because our team is made up mainly of endurance athletes, so we’ll be really strong until the end,” Morrison said. The Canadian women’s team pursuit squad is composed of four skaters — Morrison, Ivanie Blondin, Isabelle Weidemann and Keri Morrison — but only three race in the six-lap event. Morrison is expecting the starting lineup for the qualifying race on Feb. 19 to be a game-time decision. The team

With only two victories at the Christmas break, it seemed the TRU WolfPack were out of the Canada West men’s volleyball playoff conversation. Few could have predicted the smouldering second half that has the Pack on the verge of qualifying for the post-season for the first time since 2015. TRU (11-11) posted two victories over the UBC Okanagan Heat last week, winning 3-1 on Thursday in Kelowna and 3-1 on Saturday at the Tournament Capital Centre to improve to 9-1 since the holiday break. “We weren’t even in the back seat at the half,” WolfPack men’s head coach Pat Hennelly said. “We were in the trunk. Now we’re in the driver’s seat.” The WolfPack were missing their best player, Tim Dobbert, on Saturday, but handled the Heat (5-17) in four sets. Charlie Bringloe and Josh Mullaney, with 16 kills and 12 kills, respectively, helped fill in for the injured Dobbert. “I think Dobbert could have gone tonight,” Hennelly said. “That is not my style, to get guys to go out of their comfort zone when they are sort of hurt. As a group, as part of development, we needed this. We needed a game where other guys had to step up.” Jordan Foot had 11 kills, two solo blocks, six block assists and two digs in victory to earn honourable mention from his head coach. TRU sits seventh in conference standings heading into the final weekend of regularseason play. The top eight teams make the playoffs. Trinity Western of Langley, which leads the league with a 20-2

record, will come to Kamloops for a pair of tilts against the Pack this weekend. Match times are 7:45 p.m. on Friday and 6:45 p.m. on Saturday. The Manitoba Bisons and Saskatchewan Huskies have matching 9-13 records heading into their last two matches of the campaign. Manitoba will twice play host to UBCO, while the Huskies will be in tough against the UBC Thunderbirds (193) in Vancouver. “People kept asking me if we had a chance,” Hennelly said. “I said we do, but we have to win. I said eight of the first 10, but we won nine of 10. Hats off to the guys. They kept putting the time in and didn’t get discouraged. It is a great run.” Both Manitoba and Saskatchewan would have to sweep their matches next weekend and Trinity would have to sweep the Pack if TRU is going to miss the playoffs. Even then, all three teams would have 11 wins and a sets-won tiebreaker would

come into play. TRU finished an abysmal 2-22 last season, with Hennelly taking a year off to pursue education and spend time with his family. “The guys really wore that,” Hennelly said. “They were embarrassed about being the worst. That’s why it took so long for us to get out of that in the first half of the season. “Now it’s one win and we’re in.”

Withering Wolves

UBCO posted two victories over the WolfPack women last week, winning 3-1 in Kelowna on Thursday and 3-0 in Kamloops on Saturday. TRU is 7-15 and third-last in the conference, and will miss the playoffs. The WolfPack will finish their season with two matches against Trinity (13-9) this weekend. Match times are 6 p.m. on Friday and 5 p.m. on Saturday at the TCC. — with files from TRU sports information

Big crowd, costly loss

Kamloops Blazers’ goalie Dylan Ferguson cools off on Monday at Sandman Centre. The Edmonton Oil Kings downed the Blazers 4-1. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

Blazers struggling when barn fills up MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Nolan Kneen has no clue why, but he is the first to acknowledge his Kamloops Blazers have developed a penchant for big-crowd letdowns. “I’m trying to figure it out myself,” said Kneen, an 18-year-old defenceman. “I don’t know what’s going on. Maybe it is the crowd. I have no idea. It’s embarrassing sometimes.” The Edmonton Oil Kings landed the latest blow — a windmill-slobberknocker uppercut — to the Blazers’ playoff hopes on Monday with a 4-1 victory at Sandman Centre, where the largest crowd (5,578) of the season gathered for Faith and Family Day. Kamloops (26-261-3) is 1-6-1-1 in 20172018 when crowds of more than 4,000 show up to the barn on Mark Recchi way. Off-ice staff worked hard to bring in school bands and choirs on Monday, a nice touch that boosted the atmo-

sphere. T-shirts were given away. Force-fed chants were at times embraced. People were ready to celebrate. The Blazers actually played pretty darn well in the first period and took an early 1-0 lead when Jackson Shepard was credited with a greasy goal, the kind Kamloops has prided itself on this season. It was a game the home team needed to win, dangerously close to falling out of the playoff race and squaring off against the league’s lastplace team. Perhaps one more goal in that first frame would have cued a blowout victory. The goal never came. Kamloops is among the lowest-scoring teams in the WHL and lamp-lighting deficiency is one of its most obvious flaws. “When we play the last-place team in the league, you sort of take it for advantage,” Kneen said. “You come to the game with the mindset you’re going to win, but teams like this, they want to win. They don’t

want us to make the playoffs.” Edmonton (16-325-2) caught a couple of breaks in the second period, including an unusual video-review goal. Kamloops was on a 2-on-1 when the horn sounded and action was whistled dead. In the previous passage of play, it was ruled River City product Brendan Semchuk scored for the Oil Kings; his shot, which seemed to have been stopped wonderfully by Blazers’ netminder Dylan Ferguson, had crossed the goal line. The Oil Kings also scored a power-play goal, capitalizing on a questionable charging penalty assessed to Kamloops forward Tylor Ludwar. The marker was Colton Kehler’s second

of the game. Kamloops might have been hard done by in the second stanza, but it was given every opportunity to get back into the game in the third. The Blazers finished 0-for-3 on the power play, with two of those opportunities coming inside the last 10 minutes of the third period. Oil Kings’ defenceman Ethan Cap notched an empty-net marker to

round out the scoring at 19:29. Josh Dechaine played admirably between the pipes for Edmonton, making 29 saves in victory, and the Oil Kings were stellar in shutting down Kamloops in the third period. Ferguson stopped 19 shots in a losing effort. On Faith and Family Day last year, held on Feb. 13, the Portland Winterhawks were led by former Blazers’

netminder Cole Kehler, who made 41 saves in a 4-0 triumph over a listless Kamloops squad in front of 5,605 at Sandman Centre. “It’s really disappointing we weren’t able to give the fans something to cheer about,” said Blazers’ head coach Don Hay, who celebrated his 63rd birthday that day. “You look back to Hockey Day in Canada last year [2016]. We came in here against

Edmonton and we didn’t play well. There’s been other big crowds where we haven’t played well.” Hay was referencing a 4-0 loss to Edmonton in February 2016, a defeat in front of 5,673 spectators that was followed by closed-door meetings to address the team’s run of disappointing play. The Blazers’ bench boss turned 64 on Tuesday and the problem remains. See DON, A26

Nobody will remember Faith and Family Day 2017 better than the Blazers’ 6-foot-4, 221-pound forward from Arborg, Man., as it was Jermaine Loewen Bobblehead Day at Sandman Centre. He was left scratching his noggin on Monday afternoon. “I thought we had a really good first period,” said Loewen, who leads the Blazers with 28 goals after 50 games. “We worked really hard. We got a goal and then we had two bad shifts in the second period. From there, it was an uphill battle.” Kamloops has an uphill climb to make the playoffs. As of KTW’s press deadline on Tuesday, the Blazers were six points back of both the Seattle Thunderbirds and Tri-City Americans, the squads holding the conference’s two

wild-card spots. Tri-City had two games in hand on Kamloops, but played in Lethbridge on Tuesday night. The T-Birds have one game in hand on the Blazers. With 16 games remaining, the Blazers will travel to Spokane to take on the Chiefs (3020-3-2) on Wednesday. “Pretty much every game now is massive,” Kneen said. “We need these points to get back into the playoff race.” Kamloops will return home to host Kelowna on Friday — Don Hay Celebration Night. Game time is 7 p.m. The first 4,000 fans through the door will receive a specialty puck designed to honour his status as the winningest head coach in WHL history, a title Hay earned on Jan. 27 with his 743rd victory. A big crowd is expected.

KTW FILE PHOTO Luke Morris (right) and the TRU WolfPack were eliminated from the Canada West playoffs on Thursday.

WolfPack’s season ends in defeat in Regina Luke Morris went out with a bang. The fifth-year forward from Mission led the TRU WolfPack in scoring in his final Canada West basketball game, a 93-68 loss to the Regina Cougars in Round 1 of the playoffs on Thursday in the Queen City. “We really struggled defensively,” WolfPack head coach Scott Clark said. “We had some injuries which slowed us down. They were good. It is what it is.” Morris had 21 points and 11 rebounds, both game-highs, in 32 minutes of action. Regina and TRU finished the regular season with matching 11-9 records, but the Cougars outclassed the Pack in a wire-to-wire victory. The Cougars move on to the quarter-final round. “We were exposed a little bit in the playoffs,” Clark said. “We now have to evaluate and retool and go from there.” — with files from TRU sports information

Connor Barrett doesn’t plan on moving too far out of his comfort zone at the BC Winter Games. The work has already been done on the mountain, plenty of time put in at Sun Peaks Resort with fellow local Thompson-Okanagan Zone teammates Bill Brewer, Jax Anderson and Jackson Steed. “My strength is getting clean stuff done,” said Barrett, a 15-year-old Valleyview secondary student whose mom, Eryn, is a former Olympic diver. “When I go into a comp, I do what I know I can do. I don’t really huck stuff in the competition. If I just hucked stuff, I’d probably get injured.” Eryn sent a video to KTW of her son repeatedly falling while attempting a trick until he finally landed on his feet. That sticktoitiveness is

among the traits taught by Sun Peaks Snowboard Club and Sun Peaks First Nations Snowboard Team coach Danny Webb, an assistant coach for ThompsonOkanagan. “It’s a pretty cool event,” Webb said of the Games. “This will be the only chance they will get to enter it, with the age limit being 13 to 16. It’s a miniOlympics. Only 32 athletes are chosen out of B.C. They get to represent their zone. It’s a pretty big deal.” Desiree Janzen of Kamloops will also help coach the Thompson-Okanagan snowboard team at the Games. Brewer belongs to the Sun Peaks First Nations squad. Barrett, Anderson and Steed,

who ride for the SPSC, became friends through the Kamloops Minor Lacrosse Association. “The first year, I wasn’t really into it,” said Barrett, noting the Bluebird Day Fund program at Sun Peaks helped spark his love for snowboarding. “Then I met up with Jax and Jackson. I got really into it with them and that’s how it kind of blew up.” Barrett won silver playing for B.C. at the Bantam Box Lacrosse National Championship in Saskatoon last summer. He plans to use that experience to deal with pressure at the start line later this month. Slopestyle and snowboard cross will be held at Sun Peaks. The Games will run from Feb. 22 to Feb. 25. Boardercross pits athletes against each other in a race to the finish line, with berms, rollers, jumps and narrow turns among the obstacles. Slopestyle, a judged contest, sees riders complete tricks off rails and jumps.

team gold in 2014. “It feels fantastic,’’ said Morris. “It’s an amazing feeling winning the gold medal. “I’m really proud of us for coming here and putting mixed doubles on the map.’’ A disappointing fourth in Sochi four years ago, Gough had to endure some anxious moments before securing her historic medal. Gough stood third when German Tatjana Huefner, who had been in second, began her final run. But a mistake by the German pushed the Canadian on to the podium. Germany’s Natalie Geisenberger captured her second consecutive gold medal in three minutes 5.232, seconds while compatriot Dajana Eitberger was second in 3:05.599. Gough followed in 3:05.644. “Elated. Just so over the moon,’’ said Gough, who was competing at her fourth Olympics. “Especially to come that gut-wrenching feeling of being behind [Eitberger] and probably in a fourth spot again and to have that flip around on me and be suddenly in a medal spot is so amazing.’’

HABS IN KAMLOOPS TONIGHT A touring team of Montreal Canadiens alumni is stopping in Kamloops for a game on Valentine’s Day. Coach Steve Shutt, who won five Stanley Cups and was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1993, will lead the former Habs against a team of local

players, which will include Steve Gainey and Steve Passmore. Kamloops Storm owner Barry Dewar

helped organize the game, which will get underway at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday at Memorial Arena. Tickets cost $20. The Canadiens alumni roster is likely to feature Richard Sevigny, Oleg Petrov, Keith Acton, Glen Metropolit, John Scott, Normand

Dupont, Chris Nilan, Stephane Richer, Marc Andre Bergeron and Patrice Brisebois. Dewar said about 700 tickets had been sold as of Tuesday afternoon. The game will be a fundraiser for the B.C. Wildlife Park and St. John Ambulance.

John Morris, Kaitlyn Lawes and Alex Gough made Canadian Winter Games history on Tuesday. Morris and Lawes downed defending world champions Jenny Perret and Martin Rios of Switzerland 10-3 in six ends to capture the firstever mixed curling gold medal. Gough secured Canada’s first Olympic medal in luge, finishing third in the women’s singles final. Short-track speedskater Kim Boutin claimed Canada’s other medal at the Pyeongchang Winter Games, a bronze in the women’s 500-metre race. Boutin actually finished fourth but was bumped up to third after South Korea’s Minjeong Choi was disqualified. That boosted Canada’s medal haul to 10 so far — three gold, four silver, three bronze. The Canadian women’s hockey team also earned its second straight win, a 4-1 decision over Finland. Up next will be a showdown on Thursday with the arch-rival Americans, who dispatched the Russian entry 5-0. Morris of Ottawa and Lawes of Winnipeg both claimed their second Olympic gold medals. Morris was vice for Kevin Martin when they took the men’s team title in 2010 while Lawes was third for the Jennifer Jones team that won women’s

Obituaries & In Memoriam Kevin Lester Burns

On January 28, 2018, Evelyn Goller passed away peacefully at Ridgeview Lodge in Kamloops with her daughter Marlene and her grandson Chad Hargreaves at her side.

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Kevin Lester Burns. Kevin is survived by his love Tamara, his parents Tim and Sherry, brother Shawn (Lisa), nephew Brody, grandmother Louise and countless aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Kevin was born to Tim and Sherry on August 8, 1982 in Kamloops, BC. The young family moved to Prince George shortly after Kevin was born. Kevin attended elementary school as well as high school in the Prince George area where he cultivated the many friendships that took him into adulthood. Kevin moved from Prince George to Fort Saint John in 2001 to join many of his childhood friends in the Oil & Gas Construction industry. Kevin loved his career choice, co-workers and friends just the same. His co-workers regularly joked that he had a “Red Seal in Being Stubborn” which earned him the nickname “Squarehead”. Kevin loved the outdoors. You could always find Kevin after work or on weekends fishing, dirt biking or snowmobiling. Whether at work or at play, Kevin was always covered in mud and loved it. The only thing Kevin loved more than the outdoors was his family. He always made time for visits, road trips, phone calls and would always eventually text / call back.

We know you’re smiling down upon us right now. Give hugs to Grandpa Jack, Grandma Marlene, Grandpa Mickey, Buppa Hutch, Uncle Tom, Uncle Danny, Aunty Pete and Aunty Tami. We know you’re up there having a Lucky with them now. The Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at Assman’s Funeral Chapel, 1908 Queensway St., Prince George with a Celebration of Life to follow at the Sandman Signature, 2990 Rec.

Footprints One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two set of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to followed you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.” The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”

Obituaries & In Memoriam Stanley Hruska It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Stanley Hruska on February 8, 2018 in Kamloops, BC after a brave and courageous battle with cancer. He was in his 79th year. He will be lovingly remembered by Katarina his wife of 42 years, his daughters Tanya and Susanne, his son-in-law Mike and grandchildren Mikey, Marinna and Stefani Delisimunovic. Also left to cherish his memory are sister Valerie Leaf, nieces Susie McEwan and Shelley Leaf, nephew Brian Leaf and great-nieces Emma and Cecile. He is predeceased by his parents Helen and George Hruska and brother Eddie. Stan was born on July 17, 1938 in Cranbrook, BC and grew up in section-houses in the Kootenays and Columbia River Valley where his father worked for the railway. Stan and his sister Val spent happy childhoods exploring and roaming the areas around Harrogate, Skookumchuk and Columbia Lake, as best friends and siblings. This part of the world remained close to Stan’s heart and in later years, he regularly enjoyed trips to Radium and Fairmont Hot Springs with Katarina. Stan moved with his family to Sicamous, BC where he graduated high school in 1956. Sicamous and Shuswap Lake always played a large part in Stan’s life, as he spent many years there with family, visiting his parents and fishing the lakes. After working for CP Rail in Enderby, BC, Stan went to Devry Institute of Technology in Toronto to study telecommunications. He returned to BC in 1968 and began his career as a telecommunications specialist, travelling to towns across BC to install and fix telecommunications equipment with CNCP Telecommunications and then Unitel. Stan retired in 1993. Stan was an avid fly fisherman. His passion was being on the water where he would be the first one on the

lake and the last one to leave, usually with a big catch of fish for his wife to clean. He also enjoyed watching sports, especially curling, the Toronto Blue Jays and the BC Lions. A fond memory will be that he finally got to see a live football game last fall, complete with VIP treatment.

OH GREAT SPIRIT

Above all, Stan loved his family dearly and was always there to help out or share his wisdom. He was proud of his daughters, grandchildren, nieces and nephew and enjoyed watching them grow and hearing of their adventures. He was a devoted husband and brother, protective and full of advice. In his last years, Stan took on the challenge of his cancer diagnosis with sheer bravery. He followed every path offered to help him fight the disease, never hesitating for a moment to try another treatment. He remained feisty and in control and relished every moment he was given. The force of his family, especially Katarina, Tanya and Val, helped to keep Stan at home as long as possible. In the end, with his daughters by his side, peace was finally granted to him. His twinkling blue eyes looked at daughter Tanya and finding comfort, he passed into the arms of God. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Kamloops Hospice Association. Thank you to all the care aids, nurses and medical staff who helped Stan and the family over these difficult months. Funeral Mass and Celebration of Life will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 635 Tranquille Road, Kamloops on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 11:00 am with reception to follow.

Oh Great Spirit Whose voice I hear in the wind Whose breath gives life to the world Hear me I come to you as one of your many children I am small and weak I need your strength and your wisdom May I walk in beauty Make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset Make my hands respect the things that you have made And my ears sharp to hear your voice Make me wise, So that I may know the things you have taught your children The lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock Make me strong, Not to be superior to my brothers But to be able to fight my greatest enemy — myself Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes So that when life fades, as the fading sunset My spirit will come to you without shame.

We provide in-home arrangements personally tailored for each individual. Different. On purpose.

SERVING KAMLOOPS for

30 YEARS Her Journey’s Just Begun by E. Brenneman

Don’t think of her as gone away, Her journey’s just begun.

Life holds so many facets,

Just think of her as resting, AUGUST 28, 1988 marked the first edition of Kamloops From the sorrows and the tears, This earth is only one.

This Week, when we began stories from within the In atelling place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no days and years. community. To celebrate our anniversary, we’d like to hear yours. Think how she must be wishing, DO YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO…

That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness, Can really pass away.

• Was born in Kamloops on August 28, 1988? And think of her as living, • Was married in Kamloops in August of 1988?In the hearts of those she touched, • Moved to Kamloops in 1988? For nothing loved is ever lost; And she was loved so much. • Graduated high school in 1988? • Graduated from Cariboo College in 1988? Email your stories to • Opened a business in 1988?
