avid Scheffel thought he was flying from Kamloops to Slovakia for a conversation with police in the city of Presov. Within hours of arriving last November, however, he was in a small cell being fed “inedible gruel, white rolls and tap water, which I had to drink from my cupped hands,” the Thompson Rivers University professor told KTW. “I was denied a toothbrush or toothpaste, as well as any outdoor exercise,” he said in a letter to this newspaper. “Throughout the three days and nights, I heard screams and moans from people occupying adjoining cells, most of them Roma.” Scheffel, an anthropologist, remains incarcerated in the Eastern European country facing charges all who know him say are ludicrous and trumped-up. Scheffel had flown to Slovakia to address what he had originally

thought were issues stemming from his research in 2015. The Slovak police have charged him with arms trafficking, child pornography and sexual violence. Requests for bail have been rejected and Scheffel has been moved from the remand centre to

another prison facility. The Canadian government has said there is nothing it can do because Scheffel does not have Canadian citizenship. He came to the country as a teenager alongside his sister and parents in 1968 when, in response to reform movements in Czechoslovakia, the Soviet Union sent troops into the country. In 1993, the country split into two — the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Scheffel has lived in Canada for decades, but has Dutch citizenship. KTW has contacted Global Affairs Canada three times asking if it has or will intercede; the response states the Dutch are responsible for any action. “Following my imprisonment, my family and I appealed to the Dutch embassy in Slovakia to provide whatever support it could,” Scheffel said. “So far, I have had one visit from the Dutch honorary consul in Presov, who warned me that Dutch authorities cannot interfere in the conduct of the Slovak judiciary.” See SCHEFFEL, A11

Gourlay to be sentenced May 28 KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The man who pleaded guilty in connection to a hit and run in 2016 that killed a Kamloops teenager will be sentenced in two weeks. Jason Gourlay, 43, will be sentenced on May 28 after pleading guilty to failing to remain at the scene of an accident and obstructing justice in connection with the Nov. 6, 2016, death of 16-year-old Jennifer Gatey. Defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen has argued for a sentence of time served, while Crown prosecutor Neil Flanagan is urging

Supreme Court Justice Heather MacNaughton to impose a sentence of 11 to 14 months in jail. Gourlay spent the equivalent of five months in jail following his arrest last year. Under the Criminal Code of Canada, the maximum sentence for failing to remain at the scene of an accident in which a death has occurred is life in prison. Gatey was one day short of her 17th birthday when she was hit by Gourlay’s Jeep while sitting on the curb at a bus stop on Pacific Way south of Aberdeen Drive, less than a block from her family’s home. She died instantly.

A the time of the incident, Gourlay said he was momentarily distracted by his mother’s dog, which he was returning to her house after taking the animal for a walk. After learning Gatey had died, Gourlay took his Jeep to a car wash and swapped signal lights in an attempt to cover up evidence of the incident. His Jeep was seized within days, but he was not arrested until four months later. He has been free on bail since July 2017 and before that had bail revoked due to breaching conditions.

Don’t fall for ICBC text scam A scam involving fake texts purporting to be from ICBC is making the rounds of cellphones in B.C. The Better Business Bureau of B.C. said people are receiving texts that claim to offer a payment from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. The text alleges ICBC sent funds through an online transfer. It mentions “Insurance of British Columbia” and

forgets to include “Corporation” in the name. The ICBC part does show up on a link in the text. ICBC has confirmed the text is not coming from the corporation and it has also been receiving calls from concerned consumers. “Improper naming of the corporation is your first red flag,” said Evan Kelly, senior communications advisor for the BBB. “ICBC won’t send you money via text and

email transfer. “This is simply a phishing scam that could be after personal and banking information and even infect your mobile device with a virus. “The sending number had a Saskatchewan area code, which is another red flag. Don’t respond, just delete it.” HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF: • Government agencies, banks or other legitimate businesses

will never request personal financial information via text messages; • Never click on any links or call any phone numbers in unsolicited text or email messages; • Don’t respond. Responding verifies your phone number is active, which tells the scammer to keep trying. Just delete the text; • Report the suspect message to your cellphone service provider; • Report it to BBB Scam Tracker at BBB. org.

Receding water levels from Campbell Creek led the City of Kamloops to re-open Barnhartvale Road on Tuesday. “Our mid-elevation creeks have seen some improvements over the past week here,” said Greg Wightman, the city’s utility services manager. About two-thirds of the snow pack from mid-elevation that feeds into rivers and streams during the spring freshet has almost completely melted away, according to B.C. River Forecast Centre head David Campbell. Water from Campbell Creek typically runs underneath the 7200 block of Barnhartvale Road, but high flows flooded the street on May 5 and led to its closure for about 10 days. “Water was running right across Barnhartvale Road,” Wightman said, noting that while there is no longer water on the road, there is still some along the shoulder. The road was closed for about 10 days. “Our emergency services and school district and, of course, the residents of Barnhartvale can continue to access Barnhartvale the way they normally do and not have to take the detour on Blackwell Road,” Wightman said. He said the city was also monitoring water

levels at the Blackwell Road bridge near the Barnhartvale Community Hall. He said the water level came within seven inches of touching the span. Wightman said said flows in Heffley Creek, Tranquille Creek and Campbell Creek have all gone down. The city continues to work with the B.C. River Forecast Centre and Emergency Management BC to monitor snow pack levels, snow melt and water levels in local waterways. Residents are reminded to exercise caution near waterways and high, fast-moving water. Meanwhile, water levels are expected to rise this week in the Thompson rivers as the snow pack that feeds the local watershed begins to melt away amidst temperatures that are at record levels. “It’s coming more online now with melt,” Campbell said during a flood update with reporters. “At this point, [we’re] not anticipating significant flows through Kamloops through the coming week to 10 days, but certainly we’ll see them come up as the melt comes down,” Campbell said. A larger snow pack than last year and rapid snow melt from higher than normal temperatures has led to flooding around the province, particularly in smaller tributaries. With all lower elevation snow melted and

NISSAN

about two thirds of mid-elevation snowpacks gone, flooding concerns have turned to higher elevation melt. “We are shifting away from low- to midelevation influence in the rivers that are fed from that and moving our way to the upper elevations, so that’s creating a transition in terms of the rivers that are susceptible and at most risk in the coming days.” Campbell said. Between 10 and 30 per cent of the snow pack at higher elevations has melted away, Campbell said. Both the North and South Thompson rivers are fed by high-elevation snow packs. The river forecast centre has pegged the current snow pack levels for the Thompson watershed at 108 per cent of normal for the North Thompson, while the South Thompson is at 126 per cent. The North Thompson usually hits its peak flows first, Campbell said, noting water levels will be similar to those seen in 2014. He said the South Thompson tends to peak later, but given the current heat wave, the river forecast centre is expecting that to occur about four weeks earlier than usual, which would indicate it cresting by the end of the month. Campbell said the South Thompson is also expected to reach levels similar to those seen in 2012.

Groups unite in bid to limit Lafarge fallout SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A number of groups have converged around a new environmental issue in the City of Kamloops —

and just slightly outside of it. Lafarge shut down its cement operations in October 2016, including its kiln, and the plant has since operated in a limited capacity.

But with a recent permit application by the company, the plant’s neighbours are concerned they will see a return to emissions levels of the past. The groups concerned include

the Citizens for Compliance coalition, which formed following an April 5 meeting with Lafarge, and two groups that formed to oppose the proposed Ajax mine: the Kamloops Area Preservation Association and Kamloops Moms for Clean Air. On Tuesday, the groups met to ask city council to extend the comment period for Lafarge’s permit application to October 31. The comment period was already extended once to May 31. In response to the group’s concerns, Mayor Ken Christian suggested they take their concerns directly to the Ministry of Environment. George Doonan, a member of Citizens for Compliance, told KTW that some neighbours feel “stuck in the mid-

dle” when it comes to having their concerns addressed. “They sit there on their little island on their own and pay taxes into the city. When we’ve gone to our TNRD reps over the years, all we get is, ‘It’s in the city. We can’t do nothing about it.’” Lafarge is located on a parcel of city land on the north side of the South Thompson River — the only parcel of city land on that side of the river. Many of the plant’s neighbours are located within the regional district and not in the City of Kamloops. “It’s been a deadend road forever,” Doonan said. Despite his frustrations with Lafarge, Doonan said he simply wants to make sure the company follows the rules. “I’m not trying to

stop them. I just want them to be in compliance,” he said. In the April 5 meeting Lafarge held with concerned neighbours, one outcome was the creation of a community liaison group. That group planned to meet for the first time Tuesday night after KTW press deadline. Lafarge operations superintendent Mark Wilson told KTW he hoped it would produce “a good conversation. “The big thing is to listen to their concerns, listen to what they’re saying and try to turn it into doing better and meeting the standards,” Wilson said. One concern that came up during the April 5 meeting was that Lafarge had previously — when its cement operations were underway — exceeded its permit

allowance. Wilson acknowledged the process isn’t perfect and that sometimes that can happen due to variability in the cement-making process.

Private balconies to be added to Sandman Centre JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

New corporate seating planned for Sandman Centre will not impact the arena’s capacity and will not lessen access for the average Kamloops resident, the City of Kamloops’ civic facilities manager told KTW. City council on Tuesday approved a staff recommendation that will see private lounges replace about 100 seats in the upper southwest corner of the arena. “At the end of the day, it’s council’s decision to make,” Jeff Putnam said. “But the Blazers have made a very compelling business case and they’re taking all the risk as well.” Roughly 100 seats in sections AAA and BBB in the upper right balcony behind the Blazers’ home bench would be removed to construct loge seating. Loge seating would include 64 seats at tables and additional standing space and lounge seats. “There won’t be a total loss. It will be about the same,” Putnam said. “Sixtyfour [seats] with tables, but then there’s

some areas, lounging areas, as well. There’s a standup area and other chairs and stuff behind it. If you add it up, total occupancy would be the same.” The Blazers will spend $292,000, fully fronting the costs to construct the new seating. The suites will be sold for $6,350 and 14 of 16 have already been spoken for, according a report to council. The Blazers will retain revenue from the leases — $101,000 per year — for the first six years, with the city getting a 10 per cent cut ($10,000) in the seventh and subsequent years. In addition, the city will keep all revenue from food and drink sales in all years, which it estimates to be $17,000 per year, not including revenue from concerts and post-season WHL games. While council gave the project its nod, Coun. Denis Walsh was opposed, arguing the city should receive more than a 10 per cent share of loge lease revenue. Community and protective services director Byron McCorkell said the city charges among the

Mobile polls will return in election Kamloops council has approved spending the estimated $5,000 needed to ensure mobile polling stations in the Oct. 20 civic election are available at Royal Inland Hospital and 11 care homes in the city. In last year’s byelection, held on Sept. 30, mobile polling stations were eliminated to reduce costs. Patients and care-home residents were expected to mail in a ballot or visit a polling station to take part in the election. In the 2014 civic election, 520 ballots were cast at the hospital and in the care homes. At the May 8 council meeting, Coun. Pat Wallace made a motion requesting staff look at including mobile polling stations once again at RIH and in residential care homes this fall. “For us to limit the opportunity for people to vote is pretty disappointing,” she said. Council decided at its Tuesday meeting to bring back mobile polls. The estimated $5,000 cost to run the mobile polls is to cover labour and supplies.

highest rents among WHL clubs, adding the arena needs the Blazers. “I think it’s time for us to help them out a bit,” he said. Coun, Pat Wallace concurred: “When people want to come up and give us $300,000 to improve a facility they don’t own, my last word would be thank you very much.”

In a report to council, civic operations director Jen Fretz wrote: “Installing loge seating is expected to improve food and beverage sales significantly as the seats will be occupied by corporate clients and their guests.” Work will begin immediately, with an eye for completing the seating changes in

time for the start of the 2018-2019 season in September. The lounges will include televisions broadcasting other hockey games, such as the Vancouver Canucks, and will be serviced by food and beverage servers, much like the suites located directly next to the space earmarked for the new lounges.

“We are undersupplied, in general, with corporate suites,” Putnam said. “If you go to other more modern WHL facilities, they often have 20 to 30 corporate suites. We’ve got 10.” The city could sell tickets to concerts and other events at the arena, but suite owners would likely get first right of refusal,

Putnam said. Asked if the suites take away seating from the average Kamloops resident, Putnam said it doesn’t. “If the facility was 100 per cent fully occupied for every Blazer game, then the answer would be yes, but in reality, it’s not,” Putnam said. “Those are very under-utilized seats.”

DIRECT TO SMELTER – PRECIOUS METALS RECYCLING ROADSHOW RETURNS TO KAMLOOPS

Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin returns to Kamloops May 17th and 18th . You can bring your gold, silver, coins and Canadian paper money to the North Shore Community Centre between 9am and 4pm each day. No appointment is required. Barry Dick is a precious metals buyer and President of Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin which has held shows at the Brock Activity Centre in the past – please note the new location for these dates. “Ursa Major has the unique advantage of dealing direct with a smelter” Barry Dick said Dick. “That President of Ursa Major allows us to cut out Gold, Silver & Coin one or even two middlemen. Ursa Major purchases gold and silver from other gold buyers, pawn shops, dentists, jewellers and jewellery makers as well as the general public.” In terms of the US dollar, gold and silver prices appear low but the weak Canadian dollar means prices are strong. Ursa Major analyzes your gold, silver, coins and paper money while you watch, with the process explained to you in detail. Coins with numismatic value are graded and set aside from those with a ‘melt’ value. Silver items such as jewellery and flatware are analyzed for hallmark identification. Items thought to contain gold will also be analyzed for hallmarks, and then confirmed using precise testing that is done while you watch. Then a cash offer is made and you decide to sell or not. “If you decide to sell after hearing the quote, great, but it is also about information” says Dick. “A lot of times people just need to know a ballpark of what things are worth; we don’t pressure anyone into selling”. Dick took out his first gold claim when he turned 16 in the 1970’s and has been involved with precious metals ever since. An ardent gold panner, he was a regular at the world championship gold panning competition with a personal best of 3rd place in 1984. “Nearly half of the world’s annual gold harvest comes from recycled gold. Energy costs are about $500 to mine a new ounce of gold where recycled gold is about $10 per ounce. That prevents a lot of diesel from being burned.” Gold and silver purchased at the show and later melted goes back into the market without incurring that environmental cost. Out of fashion jewelry, single earrings, broken chains, unloved jewelry, charm bracelets, dental gold, nuggets and fine gold are all accepted. “We can assess any coin ever made for collector or precious metal value, including world coins and ancient coins.” People are encouraged to bring in any and all coins for assessment. Ursa Major also assesses and purchases Canadian and Dominion of Canada Paper Money. They have extensive experience working with estates, executors, widows and widowers in a respectful and caring manner. No appointment necessary.

BLAZERS BENEFIT FROM OFF-ICE TALLIES

W

hile the Kamloops Blazers have endured the public-relations equivalent of a bag skate recently, some off-ice movement led by team president Don Moores are lighting the lamp. The press conference last week to announce the sudden retirement of legendary coach Don Hay — and the associated departures of the general manager, director of player personnel and an assistant coach — left questions in the minds of many. That was followed by news this week that Massimo Risso, the club’s first-round pick in the 2016 bantam draft, will not play for the Blazers, opting instead to stay with the junior A Penticton Vees and then pursue playing in the NCAA. Those are body blows, to be sure, but amid the gloom is some silver lining. The Blazers are, as of now, one of three teams bidding for the right to host the Memorial Cup in 2020. The competition — Kelowna and Victoria — is formidable, but the Blue and Orange have decided to shape their club around the possibility of being host team of major junior hockey’s national championship tourney. That off-ice endeavour was followed by a plan to add some swank to the Sandman Centre in the form of private lounges for companies willing to shell out $6,000 per year leases. The 16 private lounges will not cost the city anything as the Blazers are paying the estimated $300,000 cost of construction. In fact, the city may even make money off the project by pocketing all food and beverage revenue and 10 per cent of the leases beginning in 2024. Major junior hockey may feature kids on the ice, but it is a business — and the efforts put forth by the club in the boardroom show there is a drive to succeed. Fans of the Blazers are now hoping the overhaul of much of the hockey operation will lead to wins off the ice becoming two points in the standings.

Of swanky lounges and lousy parents

T

his is one of those weeks when it’s hard to find a single topic worth the 600 words this space will

hold. I started one by taking a look at all the financial impacts of the plan to create 16 loges at Sandman Centre. Loges are upscale lounges with more amenities than afforded the rest of us crammed into the fold-up seats. That column idea was sparked by a comment from Kamloops Blazers president Don Moores that the seats in that southwest gondola area aren’t filled very often, which is true, even though it’s the preferred seating area for my husband and son when they go to games. That opened up a bit of a rabbit hole revealing that, with the exception of 2011-2012 and 2012-2013, attendance at Blazers games has steadily decreased from an average high of 5,474 in 1998-1999 — those days when the team was at least advancing to the finals — to 3,853 from the non-playoff season that just ended. In the end, the column didn’t materialize — although I did ponder whether Sandman Centre might do better revenue-wise if the city sold it to an entity that might improve the quality of concerts that are

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL booked there. You know, maybe convince the bands that drive from Kelowna to Prince George to stop in Kamloops for the night and put on a show. Then I moved on to what began as a bit of a rant after reading the Supreme Court of Canada has ordered a new trial for that couple in Alberta who thought garlic, onion and horseradish would cure their infant son of bacterial meningitis. The mom side of me wanted to scream out some expletives not appropriate for a work environment — even in a newsroom where those words do pop out on a regular basis from some of us — because the bottom line is this couple did absolutely nothing I would have done when dealing with a

son afflicted with meningitis. Then I thought at least we have a judicial system of checks and balances to ensure it’s operating the way it was designed to, one not based on maternal emotions, but on the rule of law. The judges decided the jury had not been properly instructed during the trial that found the couple guilty in 2016. I don’t buy the “parental rights” argument, but it isn’t against the law to be stupid, right? Whether this couple was stupid or willfully neglectful needs to be determined. Finally, I tried to find 600 words from a story I read about the 155 medical-school graduates in our country who couldn’t find residency positions in any of the 17 university medical programs across the land, something they need to do before they can start their own practices. The military is increasing its number of family residency spots to 32 from 18 to help these would-be doctors, but when the country is struggling with a shortage of doctors, one has to think the universities could do something to avoid any reporter writing about 155 medical school graduates who want to proceed, but can’t. That’s simply wrong. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @mdalebass

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CHERRY CARBON TAX IS ALL ABOUT MONEY CREEK SENDS ITS THANKS Editor: We, the Cherry Creek residents, would like to thank everyone who helped out with sandbagging. Thanks to those who brought the bags and the sand to Beaton Road and Cherry Creek Ranch. Thanks also to the people who helped fill them and place them to stabilize the creekside. They spent hours helping out, even though their backs were sore for days afterwards. Some people came from Kamloops and Savona and from as far away as Barriere, while New Afton Mine firefighters helped and others donated baked goods and coffee. Our gratitude also extends to the good businesses of Kamloop: Kam Lake View Meats, Costco, Save-OnFoods, Shoppers Drug Mart, Papa John’s, Safeway and Real Canadian Superstore, to name a few. Even though we are not out of the woods (water) yet, we wanted to let everyone know how thankful we are that we live in such a good community where strangers and friends alike lend a hand when needed. Janet Ellison Cherry Creek

Editor: I read with much interest Christopher Foulds’ column of April 20 on the carbon tax (‘Taxed for feeling good’). Finally, someone who presents common sense to the issues around carbon taxes, development and climate protection. Methinks we are all being taken to the bank as we are taxed and fee’d to death in our supposed efforts to save the environment and fight climate change. Governments are very good at finding new strategies to tax and get re-elected and they have found a good one this time. The problem is they appear to take somewhat hypocritical approaches when it comes to protecting our environment. On one hand, they tax us to save the planet; on the other hand,

they produce and ship coal and other harmful emission-creating products to other parts of the world, to be burned there. There is a big fight between different levels of governments over whether we will move oil products to market overseas, where it can also be burned. We all depend on the same atmosphere no matter where on Earth we live. As Foulds pointed out, Mother Nature does not compartmentalize emissions. What is it we really think we are doing as one city, one province or one country while other more seriously populated countries continue to pollute the atmosphere, unchecked? Yes, I have heard it many times before — we are doing our little part.

Well, that’s nice, but against the bigger scheme of things on this planet, I’d say we are really doing much about nothing, but it feels good. We are, however, being led like sheep to pay those eco-fees and carbon taxes while governments offer up no conclusive proof this taxation and fee scheme of theirs actually does anything at all to improve or correct the world’s climate conditions. I suggest it all comes down to money, as it always does. We are now, more that ever, exploring the galaxies for planets that might support life as we know it. I hope they find one soon because our planet is being overdeveloped and over-populated faster than ever before. Bob Wren Kamloops

HYPOCRISY IN BOOZE, POT REGULATIONS Editor: Here we go again. The crackdown by the city and police on the Canna Clinic marijuana store in Dufferin is a total waste of taxpayers’ money and resources. I’d like to point out a couple of items of interest. I live near Bert Edwards Science and

Technology School. Across the road is a bowling alley and pub. I go bowling with my grandsons and we share washrooms with patrons from the pub. As you enter the bowling alley and walk down the hall, there is an opening for pub patrons to cross the hall with beverages in their hand to access

more billiard tables. Where is the buffer zone for this? There is none. The strip mall where Canna Clinic is located includes a liquour store and a kids’ play centre where parents can have a drink. We also have a liquor store in Brocklehurst that uses

kids to sell alcohol in radio advertisements. Recreational marijuana will be legal by this fall. Hopefully, the city will have realistic boundaries as we see liquor has none.

Somlai: charges ‘false, fabricated’ Roma children in an Eastern European camp in 2013. Roma in Slovakia face racism at workplaces and are often victims of police brutality, evictions and intimidation from non-Romanis in the country, according to the European Roma Rights Centre. TRUEACTIVIST/WIKIMEDIA COMMONS PHOTO

DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Ivan Somlai has seen firsthand the work David Scheffel has been doing in Slovakia and it’s why he knows charges the Kamloops man is facing in the Eastern European country are “false, fabricated, not true.” Somlai, a retired Thompson Rivers University professor, has seen the increase in children starting to attend school in the Roma community where Scheffel has been researching and working. Somlai has seen small businesses take nascent steps in the community, thanks to an American non-governmental organization the two men brought into the area to teach basic business skills. Somlai has seen a slow improvement in the housing infrastructure there so people can have a roof over their head. And Somlai wasn’t surprised when the term of the research project he worked with Scheffel to obtain in 2004 ended and his friend wanted to continue his work in Slovakia, a country moving away from its communist history, but

making slow steps toward a version of democracy. Somlai, now a consultant in international areas of study, was tasked with identifying international research projects for faculty or helping them to create their own when he worked at TRU. He said when Scheffel, an anthropologist, came to him with his idea of studying social issues within the Roma population in Slovakia — a country created

when Scheffel’s birth country of Czechoslovakia broke apart in 1993 — “it was a visionary idea that truly came from his heart,” Somlai said. The two worked to make the plan come to life and, in 2004, all the approvals and grants were in place for the research to begin. Once the research term ended, however, Scheffel wanted to continue. “It often falls back to how it was

before,” Somlai said of transitioning countries like Slovakia when involvement like that of Scheffel ends. “You just can’t make many social changes in a few years. … He couldn’t walk away from it and we can’t fault him for that. We need more people like him.” Somlai is worried about his friend’s health — both physical and mental — and is helping Scheffel’s family in its quest to at least get him out of jail and see his research materials returned so he can work on his defence. A website with Scheffel’s story and a petition calling on politicians and senior bureaucrats to take action should soon be online. Scheffel faces charges of arms trafficking, child pornography and sexual violence. Requests for bail have been

rejected and Global Affairs Canada has said it cannot get involved because Scheffel is a Dutch citizen. Somlai sees it from a different angle — his colleague and friend is the father of Canadians and the federal government should do something to help them bring him home. “Even if it is just collaborating with the Dutch, helping them to do something,” Somlai said. Another potential avenue, he said, would be sending a letter to Slovakia referencing various statutes, conventions and protocols related to arrests and imprisonment that Slovakia has officially adopted. Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod said she has been in contact with Scheffel’s family and will continue to do so. She said she is unable to discuss the matter other than to say she has tried to provide assistance where she can. As for the request that the federal Liberal government work with the Dutch government on a resolution, McLeod said there are times when governments do talk to each other.

Kamloops’ Best Martial Arts! This Google map pinpoints where Presov sits in Slovakia. Thompson Rivers University professor David Scheffel has a cabin outside of Presov, where he was arrested by Slovak police last fall and charged with arms trafficking, child pornography and sexual violence.

Scheffel maintains research on Roma led to trumped-up charges From A1

Scheffel, 63, has spent years studying the Roma — also known as gypsies — in Slovakia, publishing papers on his work. He has spent so much time in Slovakia that he has a small cottage just outside Presov, where his research was centred and where he lives when working there. Scheffel said one of his criminal charges relates to an old rifle that belonged to his father. He said he thought the gun was an air rifle and did not work. He moved the rifle, along with paintings, books and other family possessions, to the cottage after his parents died in Holland. He said he had no ammunition for the rifle. A licence is required to own the gun, something he did not have and which led to the arms charge, Scheffel said. “And I had brought it along simply out of piety,” he said. Between 2015 and 2017, Scheffel conducted about 200 interviews with Roma who identified as sex workers or who had information about factors that led the Roma into the sex-trade industry. Scheffel said it is the most extensive study of the subject ever done, noting preliminary results are about to be published in the British journal Anthropology Today, which has published other papers he has written on his anthropological research. He said he believes that research, combined with allegations people in Slovakia

Read David Scheffel’s letter at kamloopsthisweek.com made, changed or recanted, led to the other charges. He told KTW he spent the first 2.5 months at the Presov remand centre, confined to a cell — many in Slovak jails are two square metres in size — except for an hour-long walk each day in a crowded outdoor corridor. He was allowed one telephone call per week for no longer than 20 minutes, one visit per week and one parcel of personal items up to a maximum two kilograms every three months. Showers are allowed twice a week for five minutes. Through his lawyer, Scheffel is filing a list of infractions he has seen with the Council of Europe — Slovakia is a member — which monitors conditions in prisons and remand centres through its committee for the prevention of torture and degrading treatment. Among the issues Scheffel is raising are arbitrary strip searches, lack of physical exercise, torn and stained clothing and bedding and a hostile and unprofessional guard staff. He wrote of a day in February when he was to have a psychiatric assessment done in another city. He said he was put out into the cold during “the harshest cold spell in

decades and I had been forced to go outside in a thin pullover … After 15 minutes, I realized that the cold was too severe to bear and I started pounding at a metal door and yelling, asking to be taken back. “There was a guard standing nearby — I could see him through the peephole in the door — but he simply ignored me. A few days later, I came down with severe bronchitis that lasted for several weeks. “On another occasion, I was to be taken to the psychiatrist’s office located at some distance from the Kosice prison [where he is now]. I made the trip with my hands and feet chained together in bear mode, as it is called locally, perhaps alluding to dancing bear performances from the past.” Scheffel said while being away from his family and isolated most of the time is difficult, his biggest fear is what he called the permanent threat of dislocation. “Day or night, an anonymous voice can issue an order through the intercom that I should pack my belongings and await transfer to another location within the institution,” he said. Scheffel also fears the isolation cells, where letters and telephone calls can be suspended or end. “We live in constant dread of this threat. It can be triggered by a wrong sentence one says in a telephone conversation or writes in a letter. My complaint [to the committee] or the publication of this statement [sent to KTW] could have such consequences.”

Firefighters train for deadly scenarios MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Firefighting can be a matter of life and death, so in order to enhance their safety skills, Kamloops firefighters are familiarizing themselves with a few techniques that may one day save their lives. Kamloops Fire Rescue firefighters recently a mobile training trailer — one of just two in Canada — brought in by the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) to conduct simulations of worst-case scenarios in order to build on their already extensive training. On Friday at the training facility on Bunker Road, firefighters demonstrated three

drills — entanglement, wall breach and the window hang. Developed from real-life on-the-job fatalities, each drill involves a prop to help simulate the scenario. Assistant fire chief Steve Robinson, who is in charge of training, knows first-hand the value of these drills, having been caught in tangled wires while on the job in Surrey. “I had wires down around my back and was caught, probably for about a minute,” he said, noting it was in that moment he realized he had a finite amount of air. But he was able to free himself. “These types of training aids are fantastic, because this is real world,” he said. The trailer is part of the IAFFs Fire Ground

Survival Program, with which all Kamloops firefighters received two-hour trial runs, learning the drills demonstrated to media and a few others, program instructor and Kamloops firefighter Jamie Chase told KTW. The window hang involves a firefighter being trapped near a window and in need of rescue. The firefighter won’t be able to survive if he remains in the room and must keep low, break the window and hang from the sill to get out of danger until a crew can get a ladder to him. “This is a last-ditch thing,” Chase said. The second drill is based on a partial roof collapse that trapped a platoon captain in 2005. Another last resort, this scenario involves

staying low to the ground and kicking through a wall in the hopes of getting into the next room. “You don’t know the room that you’re making your way into is going to be any better than the room that you’re in,” Chase said. Given that possibil-

ity, after making the hole, the firefighter must reach in and check for hazards and ensure the floor is stable before crawling through. To simulate this, firefighters had to squeeze through a small square opening. The last simulation involved being caught in loose electrical wiring in the midst of a fire. The scenario is simulated by stringing a bunch of wires through a metal corridor to represent a hallway. To avoid getting

snagged by the wires, a firefighter lies on the ground with his or her back to the bottom corner of the wall, using one arm to lift the wires and only moving forward as far as he or she has cleared. “This is one where, if you try to rush it, you get desperate,” Chase said. “That’s when you’re going to get snagged up in here.” While no situation is the same, Chase said the fact each drill is based on incidents in which firefighters

have died serves as a reminder that “this is real.” Having taken the full four-day course himself, Chase is responsible for passing that knowledge along to his fellow firefighters. There is also classroom work associated with the program that will be ongoing throughout the year, he said, adding he hopes Kamloops Fire Rescue will have access to the trailer again in the near future to conduct more detailed simulations. “I’ve taken all kinds of great courses over my [firefighting] career,” Chase said. “This four-day course was the best course I’ve ever taken. It just reminded me of the realities of our job.”

Sagebrush and Pavilion theatres get federal funding Renovations to Sagebrush and Pavilion theatres will proceed after Western Canada Theatre received $188,000 from the federal government. Among plans for the 706-seat Sagebrush Theatre on Ninth Avenue in South Kamloops are new emergency exit doors, carpeting and a rigging system. The Pavilion Theatre on Lorne Street downtown will get new

lighting and flooring. The money comes from the federal government’s cultural spaces program, which supports the physical conditions of arts, heritage and culture, including renovation and construction projects. It falls under the Ministry of Canadian Heritage, but federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau made the announcement on Tuesday at Sagebrush,

representing Melanie Joly, the minister of Canadian Heritage. In making the announcement, Garneau said WCT “plays an invaluable leadership role in the Thompson Valley,” noting the funding will help it “continue to offer high-quality artistic presentation in modernized venues that will benefit local and touring productions, as well as audiences in the Kamloops region.”

Shaver is chair of Innovate BC Alan Shaver, outgoing president of Thompson Rivers University, has been named chair of Innovate BC’s board of directors. The agency is tasked with promoting the province’s technology industry’s growth, job creation and economic development. It will review tech and innovation programs and make recommen-

dations to the provincial government. The innovation commission is a component of the confidence and supply agreement between the governing B.C. NDP and the B.C. Greens. Innovate BC was created in March 2018 following the passing of the British Columbia

Innovation Council Amendment Act, which expanded the mandate of the BC Innovation Council, and renamed it Innovate BC. Shaver is joined by a team of 11 directors and one ex-officio member. Shaver will retire in the summer after eight years heading the university.

Fire restrictions have now begun The first fire bans of the season have arrived. As of Tuesday, the size of open fires is restricted at elevations below 1,200 metres throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre to help prevent humancaused wildfires. The prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 15 or until further notice. Specifically, prohibited activities at elevations below 1,200 metres will include: • the burning of more than two open fires of any size at the same time; • stubble or grass fires of any size over any area; • the use of fireworks, sky lanterns, tiki torches (and similar kinds of torches) or burning barrels and cages of any size or description; • the use of binary exploding targets.

This prohibition does not ban campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide (or smaller) and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. Anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a ticket for $1,150, required to pay an administrative penalty of $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/ or sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs. Report a wildfire, unattended campfire or open burning violation by calling 1 800 663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cellphone.

City preparing for imminent rise of twin rivers MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Despite a tepid prediction of flows through Kamloops this week from the B.C. River Forecast Centre, the City of Kamloops is bracing for a significant jump in water levels in the Thompson rivers. “We’re looking at an increase in the next couple days at Overlanders Bridge,” said City of Kamloops utility services manager Greg Wightman. Wightman said the rivers have risen by between 20 to 30 centimetres. He said the city is predicting a temporary decline in water levels after the Victoria Day long weekend, followed by continued snow melt and higher flows. The City of Kamloops measures river levels at Overlanders Bridge to take into account flows from both the North and South Thompson rivers.

As of May 15, the Thompson sits at 342.57 metres above sea level, said Wightman. This is much higher than last year’s measurement of about 341.7m recorded on May 15, 340.6m on that day in 2012, 341.3m in 1997 and 341m in 1948, according to city statistics. Wightman said there’s many other factors to consider when looking at these numbers, such as the remaining snow pack and rain. “This year, our spring was cooler, so we maintained those higher snow packs throughout the spring and now we’ve had a more drastic melting of that snow, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be a disaster because what’s happened is all the mid-elevation snow is gone,” Wightman said, noting that in past years, it may have taken longer to melt that snow. Wightman said cooler overnight temperatures that helped slow the melt during this month’s heat wave are

expected to get warmer, meaning the melt will continue throughout the day and night. Last year, the peak level at Overlanders Bridge was reached by June 6. This year, it’s expected to happen about a week earlier due to hot temperatures that is melting the snow pack faster, he said. Wightman said it’s difficult to determine if this is an indication of more severe flooding through Kamloops this year. “We’re not seeing anything right now that is of immediate concern. We’re seeing numbers and elevations that are well within our flood response plan, so we continue to prepare for that,” Wightman said. Most of what the city is doing at the moment for flood response is monitoring river levels, but one of the more visible steps that has already been taken is sealing catch basins in lower areas of town with large reflective bags to keep river water from flooding the streets.

Donations sought for street sign poppy project JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A member of the Kamloops Heritage Commission is seeking private donations to fast track a program to erect poppies above city streets. “Council won’t support it, financially, right?” Jeff Lodge told KTW. “And I would like to see it start.” Council recently rubber-stamped

an initiative recommended by the Commission to add the symbol of remembrance to street signs that match the names of local veterans. They wouldn’t, however, front cash to pay for signs to be replaced up front, instead opting to add poppies over the next several years as signs naturally age and require replacing. It’s not soon enough for Lodge — who came up with the idea — and he has

instead set out to raise himself the $8,400 estimated to replace 52 signs. “I just want it to proceed,” he said. “I don’t want it to be forgotten about.” He is committing $1,000 of his own cash to the effort and has received enough support to pay for about half of the budget. The Vicars family in Valleyview is among financial backers, Lodge said, and has committed to pay for the replacement

of signs on their street to honour family who served. “When the Cenotaph got rebuilt, there was a $100,000 bill there,” Lodge said. “Somebody donated $50,000 to fix the clock. Half that was through private, somebody stepped up and I thought that was pretty cool that they did.” Those wishing to contribute to the cause can email Lodge at kamloopscenotaph@gmail.com.

Canadian doctor shot in Gaza CANADIAN PRESS

GAZA STRIP, Palestinian Territory — A Canadian doctor says he is recovering after being shot while helping tend to wounded protesters in Gaza on Monday. Tarek Loubani is an emergency physician at the London Health Sciences Centre in Ontario and at Shifa Hospital in Gaza, and is also a member of a team testing 3D-printed tourni-

quets in Gaza. Loubani says in a blog post that most paramedics in his team wore fluorescent high visibility jackets and he was wearing a hospital green top and bottom so he could be identified as medical staff. He says several members of the medical team were wounded and he suffered a moderate injury to his left leg and a minor one to his right leg. Loubani says he

was taken to hospital, stabilized and discharged after X-rays showed no bone injury. Israeli soldiers shot and killed 59 Palestinians and wounded hundreds during the mass protests on the Gaza border on Monday. “I was shot toward the end of the morning,’’ Loubani said in his blog. “There were no protesters in our immediate vicinity,’’ he said.

“I heard a loud bang and found myself on the ground.’’ Loubani said his team’s 3D-printed tourniquet could be manufactured in Gaza at a cost of about US$7 to help reduce deaths due to blood loss. Previously Loubani created a low-cost stethoscope using a 3D printer, the first in a series of inventions he hopes will help alleviate medical supply shortages on the Gaza Strip.

TRUDEAU TELLS TRUMP: WE CAN HAVE A NAFTA DEAL RIGHT NOW, IF YOU WANT IT ALEXANDER PANETTA

CANADIAN PRESS

WASHINGTON — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has reportedly told President Donald Trump that a NAFTA agreement is imminently within reach as long as some controversial demands are set aside. That high-level conversation occurred in the midst of what many insiders view as a lastditch push for a renegotiated agreement before impending political events pause the process until next year. The characterization of Trudeau’s message to Trump came in a television interview in Mexico: the economy minister in that country revealed some details of the leaders’ chat earlier this week. When asked about his

conversation with the U.S. president, Trudeau confirmed he views a renegotiated pact as promptly attainable and publicly repeated a similar message. “There is very much an imminently achievable outcome that will be good for the United States, good for Canada, good for Mexico — and we’re very close,’’ Trudeau told a Calgary news conference. “We will continue in the coming days to work hard to try and get there. We know that a deal is not done until it’s done. And we’re going to continue to remain optimistic and hard-working on trying to get this settled.’’ Asked whether he asked the president to pare down his wish-list, Trudeau said: “We’re pushing defence of our own

interests, but highlighting that it’s very possible to have a winwin-win.’’ The countries are attempting to set up one more ministerial round this week, after which it may become too late to meet the U.S. procedural deadlines required for a vote before the midterm elections bring in a new Congress. All three countries have some interest in wrapping up a quick deal: Canada to calm jittery business investors, Mexico to close the file before its presidential election and the U.S. to provide stability for struggling agricultural exporters. They are swimming against a tide of unresolved issues and even competing agendas; insiders say there are mixed opinions within the U.S. administration on the value of additional rounds this week.

TRU professor retraces steps taken by Charles Darwin in the mid-1800s DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

irds helped drive Charles Darwin’s research into what became the theory of evolution — so it’s understandable that a Kamloops scientist whose passion is the study of birds felt a strong link to the naturalist. It also wasn’t a surprise — particularly to his wife — when Tom Dickinson, dean of science at Thompson Rivers University and owner of a copy of Darwin’s renowned journal, jumped at the change to take a trip from Buenos Aires to the Falkland Islands, around Cape Horn at the bottom of South America and back up the coastline. It’s essentially the trip Darwin, aboard the HMS Beagle as a naturalist, spent five years undertaking from 1831 to 1836, a trip he called “The most important event in my life” that “determined my whole career.” Dickinson said he always reads parts of Origin of the Species to his

Charles Darwin

science students as much to show science and research can be fun as to discuss the theory of natural selection Darwin espoused. Dickinson learned of the trip at a Kamloops Symphony Orchestra performance last year. It wasn’t advertised as a re-creation of Darwin’s trip, but rather a journey around the southern tip of the continent. But Dickinson saw the potential with stops in many of the places Darwin visited during his five years at sea. “”This is my one chance,” Dickinson said, noting it also meant leaving TRU for several weeks in the middle of the winter term. “And so, yes, I disappeared for a while,” he said. First stop was Buenos Aires, a city Dickinson said was cool and “proud it invented the tango.” For Dickinson, though, it was a chance to avoid the normal tourist route and head out into surrounding fields, accompanied by members of the Argentinian city’s bird-watching club. The first bird he saw was a giant wood rail, unique to South America “and one honking big bird,” he said. “I recognized it, but it was completely different. Very big bird.” Dickinson said he saw a scarlet-headed blackbird, something not found in Canada, a whistling heron and a curve-billed reed haunter. “In twoand-a-half hours, I saw 54 spe-

cies,” Dickinson said. The voyage took him to areas next to the Plata River, where he encountered even more bird species, including cowbirds, something he was keen to see because his honours thesis in 1974 was on that particular species. Cowbirds are unique because they are considered to be parasitic — they lay their eggs in other birds’ nests and then abandon their young to be raised by those surrogate parents. Darwin referred to parasitic birds and their behaviour as he explained his theory of natural selection. A few days later, Dickinson found himself in Costanera Sur in Peru, what he called “a bird’s paradise.” Among the species he came across was a Grand Southern Screamer. “And there’s no reason to question why they are called that,” he said of the bird’s distinctive vocalization. In about 90 minutes, Dickinson saw more than 150 types of birds. “I’d take a picture of one and then turn a bit and there was another one and then turn a bit more and there was another one,” he said. A stop at the Patagonian steppe brought Dickinson to nature in conflict — some areas were desertdry, what he called “quite a nasty environment,” while nearby would be a lush grassland and a cobble beach where he saw sea lions, killer whales, ducks and Magellanic penguins. Completing his Darwinian voyage, Dickinson managed to find two loco barnacles from a fishmonger and then get permission to bring them back to Canada to be housed at TRU. Barnacles were also key to Darwin; he spent years after the Beagle voyage studying them, eventually publishing his work on them. Dickinson has been presenting a slide show of his trip to various community groups in Kamloops.

TRU dean of science Tom Dickinson (centre photo) finally took a trip he’s dreamed of for years, re-creating part of Charles Darwin’s journey around the base of South American that led to his theory on evolution and his book On the Origin of the Species. Among species Dickinson saw were penguins (top) and guanaco (left), believed to be an ancestor of the llama and another fast creature, able to run at speeds of about 56 km/h.

speaking DOES YOUR BREATH SMELL LIKE POOP?

Dr. Preety Desai Chances are you will never be told that your breath is unbearable! Yet when you first meet someone new, it is the most important factor affecting others’ impression of you in a social or professional situation. Bad breath is not just due to the obvious things like coffee, garlicky caesar salad or greek food. The most common cause of bad breath is poor oral hygiene and periodontal disease. An abscessed tooth which of course causes bad breath also has sulphur forming bacteria hiding underneath your gums and deep in your periodontal pockets, exuding toxins and noxious fumes. If you have periodontal disease or an abscess, you are used to your own bad breath and will never recognize this as a major problem for anyone you’re having a conversation with. Saliva plays an important role in lubrication of your mouth which protects your mouth from the hundreds of pathogens that can enter your mouth’s mucosa due to dryness. Many medications prescribed by your doctor can increase the dryness of your mouth. Chewing tobacco, smoking, asthma puffers can all reduce the natural moisture in your mouth as well. Another cause of bad breath could be related to infected sinuses. The sinuses are air-filled passages in the face. When fluid becomes trapped in the sinuses, bacteria can collect, and this may lead to infection. These pathogens produce odours, since the maxillary sinus drains into the back of your throat, this will be a problem you don’t even know of. Viruses cause most sinus infections, so antibiotics are not typically prescribed unless a doctor suspects a bacterial infection. The mouth is the entrance way to the whole gastrointestinal system which includes the stomach, your intestines and bowels. All of which are downstream from food intake in the mouth but any gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), ulcers or bowel obstruction are all responsible for bad breath because stomach acid mixes with food and bacteria. Similarly illnesses involving vomiting will obviously be responsible for bad breath due to any acids from the stomach. With the popularity of the ketone diet, one must realize the risk of extreme bad breath when changing to this diet. Since carbohydrates are not being broken down; but rather fats are broken into ketone bodies. These ketone bodies can be used by the body for energy but the side effect is noxious odour - so be aware. Similarly uncontrolled diabetics also have bad breath as they too don’t break down carbohydrates. Ask someone you know if YOU have breath smelling like poop!

Kamloops and District wins B.C. Branch of the Year Award KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The Kamloops and District branch took home this year’s BC SPCA Branch of the Year Award. The branch, which will hold a groundbreaking on its new community animal centre in Brocklehurst this Thursday, was recognized for its efforts to reduce the length of stay for cats and dogs in the shelter by maximizing use of the society’s Drive for Lives animal transfer program. By increasing its transfers by 22 per cent in 2017, the branch was able to reduce the average length of stay for cats in its care to 12 days from 17 days and the average length of stay for dogs to seven days from 10 days. The new 10,500-square-foot facility will be built on 2.2 acres of land on Tranquille Road, across from Kamloops Airport. The centre will include a spay/neuter clinic and a multi-purpose room for humane education programs for summer camps, birthday parties for children, youth workshops and education sessions for pet owners. It will serve more than 1,500 abused, neglected, homeless and injured animals each year. Meanwhile, the recent Furball Gala, held at Colombo Hall, served as the beginning of the capital campaign for the community animal centre. The Olynyk family of Kamloops — Ken, Arlene, Kelly, Jesse and Maya — will serve as ambassadors of the BC SPCA’s High Five Capital Campaign to raise $700,000 in community donations still needed to complete the facility. Kelly Olynyk, a forward with the NBA’s Miami Heat who returned to Kamloops for the May 5 gala, said his family is passionate about animals. “We take comfort in knowing that the BC SPCA is advocating and actively caring for animals,” Olynyk said. “We’re excited that this new centre will help the SPCA do even more in our communities to provide that lifesaving care. As a family, we are proud to be a part of this community effort to raise the necessary funds to complete this project.” For more information on fundraising for the new animal centre, go online to spca.bc.ca/highfive or contact Lisa Fuller, manager of community development for the Kamloops and District Branch, by phone at 250-572-3297 or by email at lfuller@spca.bc.ca.

Dig It: Recording history one shovel test at a time PHOEBE MURPHY SPECIAL TO KTW republicofarchaeology.ca

F

or archeologists in the southern Interior, the summer months commonly involve spending long days digging shovel test after shovel test. Shovel tests are used as a technique to discover archeology sites buried in the ground and involve crews manually digging square holes measuring 35 centimetres a side and 70 centimetres deep. All of the dirt removed from the test is sifted through a mesh screen to catch any artifacts that may be buried in the ground at that location. More often than not, shovel tests are dug and no artifacts are found within the sifted dirt. Archeologists call these negative shovel tests. Occasionally, shovel tests are placed in just the right location and we find artifacts in the tests. When this happens, it feels like everyone’s hard work stomping on shovels and carefully sifting through the dirt is rewarded. Finding even one artifact, which in the southern Interior typically consists of stone tools or the stone chips associated with making stone tools, constitutes an archeological site, which is afforded automatic protection under the Heritage Conservation Act. As soon as an artifact is found, there are specific tasks that must take place so the newly identified archeology site is adequately tested and recorded. Since the details and location of each site are unique, archaeologists must determine how many shovel tests are required to appropriately test the site in order to comply with archeological permits issued by the B.C. Archaeology Branch or First Nations organizations (or both). This typically involves digging shovel tests at specified intervals, usually every two to five metres from the test containing artifacts, until there are two or three negative shovel tests in a row in every direction. Depending on how many shovel tests contain artifacts, this process can add dozens of additional tests

for archeology crews to excavate. The idea is to find the extent of the buried artifact scatter and determine the outside boundaries of the site. Once the testing is complete, a site map is drawn to depict the location of all the shovel tests in relation to nearby landmarks, like creeks or roads. The subtle details in the topography surrounding the site are also drawn, such as landform margins, changes in slope and bedrock exposures. There are all sorts of globalpositioning technologies to assist with site mapping, but archeologists commonly just use graph paper, a compass and measuring tape to create an accurate and to-scale map. These completed site maps are then provided to the B.C. Archaeology Branch so the location of the newly identified site is added to the central database, which is called the provincial heritage register. This means any archeologist working in the area in the future will have access to the map, which will help inform them about the type of terrain where one would expect to find an archeological site and provide insights into how the landscape was used thousands of years ago. Finding new archeological sites and uncovering artifacts that haven’t been touched for thousands of years since they were disposed of or lost is partly what makes archeological field work so exciting. Documenting archeological sites through accurate site mapping and recording ensures information about each archeological site in the province is preserved.

Chamber wants info on electoral reform vote “There seems to also be some resistance on the part of government to get that information out there. We’re just saying, ‘Let us know what we’re going to be voting on.’” Premier John Horgan has said voting by mail-in ballot will be conducted by the end of November, but he has yet reveal specific details on dates and the referendum question. British Columbians have twice rejected changes to the first-pastthe-post system of electing MLAs, in 2005 and 2009 when the singletransferable ballot was offered as an alternative. The chamber wants clarity surrounding the type of proportional representation being considered. It also wants a non-partisan review body and a clear majority

JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce wants the province to hit the gas pedal in providing information to the public on electoral reform. While the NDP government has slated for this fall a third provincial referendum regarding the matter, it has yet to be made public what British Columbians will be voting on or the impacts of a new system and what it would look like. “I don’t know that we have the time, quite frankly, between now and then to even make that happen,” Kamloops Chamber of Commerce president Joshua Knaak said.

to guide changes. The province has proposed a 50%+one majority, which Knaak said contradicts the Referendum Act. He has concerns Interior B.C. would not be fairly represented against the will of larger populations in the Lower Mainland. “We don’t want to turn this into a rural-urban divide because I don’t think that’s the intent,” Knaak said. “But it sure could look like that.” The recommendations — which were made in collaboration with Kelowna’s business community — will be deliberated and decided upon at the BC Chamber of Commerce’s annual general meeting, which will be held in Kamloops from May 24 to May 26 at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and

Conference Centre. If the recommendations are approved, the provincial chamber would lobby Victoria based on the business interests of the province. “We’re not saying we’re against proportional representation,”Knaak said. “We’re just saying it’s hard to make a decision on something you can’t quantify.” The province wrapped up its public-engagement period on Feb. 28, receiving 88,000 online questionnaires, hundreds of written submissions and information from about 30 organizations the government said will help shape the referendum process. The next step is a report from B.C.’s attorney general. “I guess, in some regard,

we may be late to the game,” Knaak said. “And we’ve got our process, so I can’t change the timing of when the BC Chamber AGM is, necessarily.” The local chamber is submitting several other resolutions, including calls to update the post-secondary school funding formula, to make carbon taxes revenue-neutral and to limit the number of needles distributed to drug users. The full list of resolutions can be read online at tinyurl.com/ ychlcdrt. The concept of a tax-free savings account and 10-year passports originated via Kamloops Chamber of Commerce resolutions presented at past BC Chamber of Commerce’s annual general meetings.

Alert (not completely) Ready to roll out KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The new wireless Alert Ready system was tested in British Columbia last week. Although many British Columbians received the alerts, many others did not, according to the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. The intent of the test was to ensure the expanded public-alerting system works as intended. The ministry said test results revealed some compatible phones on LTE networks did not receive the alert.

Alert Ready wireless testing undertaken last week in other provinces and territories showed similar results. Officials from participating provinces and Pelmorex, the company that manages the Alert Ready system, will discuss technical issues and determine how best to address them. Next steps will include addressing outstanding issues before the official launch of the expanded alert ready system in June. On April 6, the federal government, provinces and wireless carriers launched wireless alert capability

through the national Alert Ready program. The system was expanded from TV and radio alerts to compatible wireless devices that are connected to LTE networks. To find out if your wireless device is compatible with the Alert Ready system, go online to alertready.ca PreparedBC is a one-stop shop for disaster readiness information.

The city received the 2018 Community Excellence Award for Social Responsibility at last week’s Southern Interior Local Government Association convention in Revelstoke, which the mayor and multiple councillors attended. “Of course, it’s not the councillors and the mayor who go about making that happen,” Deputy Mayor Dieter Dudy said. “They’re the people in the background. They’re the people that are out there doing

BRIEFS the heavy lifting.” Council presented the award to social planning supervisor Jen Casorso and her staff. As of late, the city has had its hand in numerous social housing projects and opened a storage facility downtown for the belongings of the homeless. DISASTER-RELIEF SUPPLIES The province is hoping a new preparedness program will help

British Columbians think ahead and be ready in case of evacuation orders and natural disasters. Jennifer Rice, parliamentary secretary for emergency preparedness, said the province will be partnering with retailers to make it easier for people to buy disaster-response supplies in stores to create emergency kits ahead of time. Ready-made shopping lists will be available in stores that join the program. The lists will be used to assemble kits to be kept in people’s homes, vehicles and workplaces. Retailers can customize the

lists to the specific hazards in their area by choosing to feature one or more of the five emergency risks: earthquake, wildfire, flood, power outage and severe weather. London Drugs and Save-OnFoods are the first two retailers to join the program. REPELLING INVADERS The Thompson-Nicola Regional District and Thompson Rivers University will receive $420,000 over the next three years to manage the spread of invasive species. B.C. Natural Resource Minister Doug Donaldson

announced $861,500 in grants to the Okanagan and ThompsonNicola regions, including $120,000 for the TNRD and $300,000 for TRU. “Our government is committed to containing or eradicating harmful invasive plants that adversely affect both rural and urban communities,” Donaldson said in a press release. Invasive plants are species that have been introduced from areas outside the province. They can displace native vegetation and cause economic and environmental damage. Grants were previously given on a year-to-year basis.

Real Estate versus the Stock Market Our family recently came across the original purchase agreement and trust indenture (mortgage) of our Grandparents' house in Vancouver, back in 1951. They purchased their home on West 36th Avenue and Dunbar Street in October 1951 for $10,500. Our grandparents lived there happily for many years raising their three sons, hosting countless holiday dinners and building a legacy of memories. As our grandparents grew older and their health began to fail, they sold in 1996. What is that property worth today? The 2018 BC Assessment was an incredible $4,646,000. Keep in mind the market value could be higher. So what does that return on investment look like? Well from 1951 to 2017, or 66 years, we have calculated the annualized rate of return to be approximately 9.67%. This does not factor in home ownership costs such mortgage, insurance, upkeep and property tax.

April home starts dip in Kamloops BUT YEAR-TO-DATE NUMBERS STRONG, SAYS REAL ESTATE ASSOCIATION

The president of the Kamloops and District Real Estate Association believes the region is on pace for another strong homebuilding year, despite numbers from April that show single-detached home starts down by more than half compared to the same month a year ago. The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s most recent report on residential construction activity in Kamloops shows 23 single-family home starts last month, compared to 54 in 2017.

KADREA president Doren Quinton called April 2017 an anomaly, saying yearto-date numbers still show a hot housing sector. “It’s hard to see a trend in one month,” he said. “I think we’re just seeing an aberration in a big number from April last year.” The CMHC data show 44 total starts — including single-detached, semidetached, row and apartment — last month, down from 66 in April 2017. Yearto-date figures, however, show 152 housing starts so far in 2018 compared to 95 over the same time last year.

“Year-to-date, we’re still well ahead of the pace we set last year,” Quinton said. “I’m pretty confident in the numbers this year. CMHC put out estimates forecasting 570 to 640 this year. We’ve had 152 in the first quarter and that compares to 95 at this time last year. Last year, we ended up with 650 starts.” Quinton believes the market is still surging. “We still have low inventory in Kamloops,” he said. “We still need the starts and the construction industry is very busy here, which is good for the sector.”

not his decision alone. Here’s Hay, asked if he thinks ownership is doing the right thing by cleaning house: “I don’t know if that’s a good question to ask someone who just got let go, or just made the decision to go to a different role,” Hay said. Here’s Gaglardi, responding to a question about having to make changes now, instead of prior to 2019-2020, with the Blazers bidding to host the 2020 Memorial Cup: “Is this the year to make the change, to make all the changes? That was discussed among ownership.” If Hay was let go, you can’t call it retirement. If Gaglardi made a change, you can’t call it retirement. At the very least, those quotes cast doubt on how this is being sold to us. But I’ve now talked to multiple smart hockey people who suggest this split is more mutual than it appears. They say ownership wanted to go in a different direction and, at some point this spring, Hay decided he did, too. So, why was it packaged so clumsily? See NATURE, A28

omething about Don Hay’s retirement as head coach of the Kamloops Blazers seems offside. Separate press conferences were held to announce Don’s Decision, the catchy phrase used intentionally liberally by majority owner Tom Gaglardi when he spoke to media on Thursday. That the owner and head coach did not participate in the same presser to announce such foundation-shaking news is not a good look, even if it’s true their busy schedules didn’t line up. Gaglardi dropped the bombshells. Hay is retiring from the head coaching job and becoming advisor to hockey operations, director of player personnel Matt Recchi and assistant coach Mike Needham will not be back next season and general manager Stu MacGregor will be dispatched to the Gaglardi-owned Dallas Stars’ scouting staff, a fledgling cemetery for terminated Blazers’ GMs. Craig Bonner has a plot. When Hay returned from the lake in the Shuswap on Friday (he was sandbagging at his cabin and visiting granddaughters), he held court outside the Blazers’ dressing room. He read a prepared statement that clearly leaves the door open to him coaching again and was emotional when addressing the fates of MacGregor, Recchi and Needham. The 64-year-old Kamloopsian fell on the sword and took blame for the team’s shortfalls over the last four seasons. It was the honourable thing to do, even if he might really be thinking a workman is only as good as his tools. At least two quotes from last week’s news conferences suggest Don’s Decision was

Nature of Hay’s decision remains murky From A27

Eyebrows rose when Gaglardi said he was made aware of Hay’s decision last Wednesday, one day before the owner staged a press conference. So, he learned of Don’s Decision on Wednesday and by Thursday morning the mass culling was complete? That seems off. Hay later said he had a meeting with friend and Blazers’ president Don Moores earlier in the week, a tete-a-tete in which honest feelings were laid bare. Bottom line: The PR messaging was loose. Gaglardi said on Thursday he had not spoken or communicated with Hay since learning of Don’s Decision on Wednesday. If the winningest head coach in WHL history announces his retirement, doesn’t the owner pick up the phone and call him? Gaglardi admitted the following things:

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Don Hay spoke to reporters on Friday at Sandman Centre about his decision to retire from his position as head coach of the Kamloops Blazers.

Ownership is unhappy. There is concern about Hay’s ability to connect with the modern-day junior player. Changes have been contemplated. If a coaching change was going to be made, it likely had to be made this off-season and not prior to the 2020 Memorial Cup year. Missing the playoffs is unacceptable. So, if Don’s Decision never materialized, would ownership have been content to con-

tinue along the path it was on, given all of those admissions? Was the plan to do nothing if Hay didn’t retire? I stood alone with Hay at Sandman Centre in March and asked him if he wanted to be back behind the Blazers’ bench next season. The answer was a resounding yes. Granted, people change their minds. Maybe 64-year-old Hay had an epiphany and decided it’s time to

spend more time with family. Perhaps he woke up one morning and realized travelling across Western Canada on a bus is no longer for him. I don’t buy either of those reasons. If Hay was truly agreeable to leaving now, something else must have happened. From what I gather, he’s still healthy and he loves the grind. He lives for it. The guy just

finished flying across the globe for a hockey tournament in Russia. I still find it hard to believe Hay would just up and pull the plug on the chance to end his career with a Memorial Cup victory on home ice in his hometown in 2020. I know that’s a “Disney scenario,” as Hay quipped on Friday, but that was the goal when the bid was announced in November. “That would be a great way to end a coaching career, no doubt about it,” Hay told me in November. So, what actually happened here? Perhaps brass was worried about fallout from firing a legend, especially among season-ticket holders who are ardent Hay disciples, so they drummed up a retirement scheme and came to an agreement with Hay to go along with it. That is not an uncommon route in the hockey world and it would be done partly out of respect for Hay. Or maybe Hay has been underwhelmed by

support received during his second tenure here. Was he given the type of players he wanted? Was he able to ice a Don Hay team? Did the future here start to look bleak? Was he offended by something ownership confronted him with after the season? Were there complaints from players? Maybe he just wanted out. The answer is likely somewhere in the middle of those two scenarios. It’s likely he realized he’s neither happy here nor particularly wanted by ownership anymore. It was time to move on. Hay’s demotion to advisor to hockey operations seems like a ploy to soften the blow of his departure. What that role looks like next season will be up to the GM and head coach. It could work or they may not want him around. Hell, he might have work elsewhere by then. As has been the case with several big PR moments in recent Blazers’ history, this

was a bungle job. The question now — is this shakeup a good thing? Stomping on graves isn’t my thing. I had pretty solid working relationships with Hay, MacGregor, Recchi and Needham. But they know hockey lifespans are short and results weren’t there. Recchi had a 10-year run. It’s tough to argue fresh ideas in the scouting department will hurt the team. Younger GMs and coaches are trending. Moving into the present from the past seems like a promising idea. If the right GM is hired and given freedom to run his own operation, the total makeover can be a success. Gaglardi has to get it right this time. The city is tired of debacles, both on and off the ice. He knows that. “I don’t know how you can say anything is working well,” Gaglardi said. “I don’t know what else to say other than the fact is we haven’t done a good enough job.”

Rizzo will not play for Blazers MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Mired in turmoil, the Kamloops Blazers and their fans could have used some good news on Tuesday. Instead, the club was dealt another blow. The Blazers confirmed top prospect forward Massimo Rizzo does not plan to play in the Western Hockey League. Rizzo was the Kamloops Blazers’ first-round pick, 15th overall, in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft, but did not sign with the major-junior squad. He reported to the Penticton Vees of the junior A B.C. Hockey League for the 20172018 campaign. By doing so, he remained eligible to play in the NCAA ranks. The Blazers confirmed he plans to play next season for the Vees and is expected to be named team captain. Rizzo, who turns 17 in June, had 13 goals and 38 points in 50 games with the Vees in 20172018. He will likely play NCAA hockey in 20192020. The Blazers brought a few of their heavyweights — majority owner Tom Gaglardi, part-owner Shane Doan, thengeneral manager Stu MacGregor and former head coach Don Hay — to a meeting with Massimo and his father, Remi, in Vancouver last June. The Rizzo family informed the club last July of the decision to have Massimo play

for the Vees in 20172018, but they did not rule out a move to the Blazers in the future. “I don’t think any doors have ever been closed,” Remi said last July. “If that was the case, it would have been a very short meeting with the boys last week. “This is the right choice for this year and next year he reevaluates what the best opportunity for development is then.” For fans who held out hope Rizzo may return and for current Blazers who hoped to play with him, the news on Tuesday was not good. MacGregor was informed Rizzo is going the BCHL/NCAA route prior to the WHL Bantam Draft, held on May 3 in Red Deer. MacGregor was dismissed from his role as Blazers’ GM last week. Rizzo notched 22 goals and 84 points in 48 games with Burnaby Winter Club’s midget prep team in 2016-2017 and won the Canadian Sport School Hockey League’s Freshman of the Year Award that year. He racked up 60 goals and 137 points in 61 games in his secondyear bantam campaign with BWC in 2015-2016. “It’s probably the hardest decision I’ve had to make so far,” Massimo told KTW in August 2016 at Blazers’ training camp. “There are lots of options and lots of things to think about, either playing college or Dub (WHL).” Remi could not be reached for comment on Tuesday morning.

Kamloops Blazers’ draft pick Massimo Rizzo has his eye on playing in the NCAA.

Niles chasing tour title

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Adam Niles of Kamloops will need a few good results if he is going to catch Matt Hopley, the Kelowna golfer who leads the Zone 2 boys Order of Merit standings.

Adam Niles of Kamloops sits third overall in the B.C. Golf Zone 2 Boys Junior Tour Order of Merit standings with three events to play. He placed second in the 15- and 16-year-old juvenile low gross category at both weekend tour stops. The Rivershore Golf Links member shot 80 at Shuswap National Golf Course in Salmon Arm on Sunday and 78 at Vernon Golf and Country Club on Saturday, earning 19 points and 14 points, respectively. Matt Hopley of Kelowna leads the Order of Merit standings with 245.5 points. Niles, who has 202.7 points, and Hopley are both juveniles com-

peting for the overall title against golfers who are as old as 18. The tour returns to Kamloops on May 26, with Eaglepoint Golf Resort set to host the Zone 2 boys and girls. Talking Rock Golf Course near Chase is the host course for the round on May 27. Gallagher’s Canyon Golf and Country Club in Kelowna is the site for the last event of the tour on June 9 and June 10. The event doubles as the Zone 2 Junior Championship. Rivershore hosted a tour stop on May 5 and Kamloops Golf and Country Club followed suit on May 6.

SHAPOVALOV CLIMBING WORLD RANKINGS THE CANADIAN PRESS

ROME — Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov pulled off another big win, overcoming a slow start to beat 15th-seeded Tomas Berdych 1-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5) in the first round of the Italian Open on Tuesday. Also on the red clay of the Foro Italico, three-time Rome champion Maria Sharapova defeated 16th-seeded Ashleigh Barty 7-5, 3-6, 6-2, defend-

ing champion Elina Svitolina routed Petra Martic 6-1, 6-2, and defending French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko eliminated Zhang Shuai 6-2, 7-5. The 19-year-old Shapovalov is coming off a semifinal appearance in last week’s Madrid Open, where he beat fellow Canadian Milos Raonic in the Round of 16. Already up to a career-high ranking of 29th this week, the victory over Berdych will move Shapovalov ahead of No. 22

Raonic when next week’s rankings come out — making him the top Canadian. “It’s something I’ve wanted to work towards for all my life,’’ Shapovalov said. “So, to be able to do that, it’s pretty crazy. Hopefully I could lead the country to a Davis Cup victory one day.’’ Shapovalov is already the youngest player in the top 30 since Richard Gasquest reached No. 17 in 2005 at the age of 19.

SPRING

2018

Spring is the time to amplify the bird section MARK AND BEN CULLEN

SPECIAL TO KTW

editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

n the chorus that is a living garden, our favourite section is the singing birds. A breeze through tall grass, the crunch of gravel underfoot and a frog croaking all play their part in this living soundtrack. Nothing can stop us in our tracks like birdsong. Our friends at Bird Studies Canada (BSC) remind us that birds are an important indicator of the health of our environment. Healthy planet equals healthy birds. Our favourite way to promote and enjoy birds is bringing them right into the backyard by providing food and habitat. Here is how: Plants are a one-stop shop for food and shelter. Birds prefer fruits and

seeds right off the plant and most birds either build their nests in a tree, shrub or stand of grass or make their nests from pieces of it. Flowers such as asters, black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia), Echinacea (purple coneflower) and coreopsis not only add colour to your yard, but attract a range of songbirds, from cardinals to colourful finches. Leave perennials standing throughout the winter so they can continue to be foraged, then cut them down in the spring. Native ornamental grasses attract sparrows, finches and other small birds that forage for seeds. Robins and sparrows pick up coarse blades to construct the main walls of their nest, then revisit for finer-textured blades to pad the soft lining of the interior. We recommend planting big bluestem, little bluestem, northern sea oats or side oats.

Like your perennials, leave these grasses standing through the winter to provide habitat for overwintering species such as dark eyed juncos. Robins, waxwings and cardinals build nests in shrubs, eating and singing like old friends at an East Coast kitchen party. Mulberries and serviceberries are two mediumsized, summer-fruiting shrubs that are especially popular with this crowd. Flowering dogwood bears fruit in the fall to keep them coming, as does crabapple, which also fruits in the fall, but holds its fruit into the winter Trees are the bird equivalent of a tall condo building, bustling with life. White oaks provide nesting opportunities to woodpeckers, jays and even wood ducks and, unlike other oaks, white oak produce acorns every year. Native tree species are

you want: • Black oil sunflower seed will attract cardinal, blackcapped chickadee, mourning dove, dark-eyed junco, song sparrow and common grackle. • Suet and bird peanuts attract blue jay, red-breasted nuthatch, downy woodpecker, white-breasted nuthatch and hairy woodpecker. Avoid human peanuts as the salt is harmful to birds. • Nyjer/ black oil sunflower will attract the smaller house finch, American goldfinch, purple finch, common redpoll and pine siskin. With enough food and places to make a nest, remember water. This is extremely important as birds, like humans, need to drink and bathe. As you enjoy the bird chorus of the oasis in your yard, consider joining a citizen science initiative through BSC, such as Project

FeederWatch. Simply count the kinds and numbers of birds at your feeder and report it back for BSC to add to its comprehensive database. Information about the health of our bird population helps us understand the health of the broader environment. Go online to birdscanada.org for more information. This is an important way that you can do your part.

found to support more bird life. We recommend red maple or black, red and white spruce, gray, white and yellow birch or black willow if you have lots of space. Once you have created a bountiful bird food garden, supplement with the right bird feed. Here are our guide lines for a great feeding experience: Birds will forgive you for letting the feeders go empty. People worry that birds depend on them for feeder food. While a feeder helps bring birds to your yard, it will only ever be one of many food sources they depend on, so don’t race home from the cottage to fill your bird feeders. Buy seed based on the birds you wish to attract. The following guidelines from BSC will help you understand what type of feed will attract the birds

SUDOKU FUN BY THE NUMBERS

Marble Groups

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

This is puzzle No. 259.

You have some marbles. Each is one of six colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. For each colour, there are two, five or nine marbles of that colour. The total number of marbles that consist of marbles of colours that have exactly two of that colour is not prime. The same is true for five of a colour and nine of a colour. The total number of marbles is odd. There is at least one colour that has two marbles and the same is true for five and nine marbles.

Obituaries & In Memoriam Celebration Of Life Phyllis Nelson

Terry Hannigan

February 13, 1921 – May 4, 2018 Terry Hannigan passed away peacefully on May 4, 2018 at Kamloops Seniors Village. He is predeceased by his cherished wife Doris on March 30, 2018. Survived by daughters Holly (Larry) Campbell of Kamloops and Heather (Ted) McCain of Maple Ridge, grandchildren Brent (Sandra) Campbell, Erin (Bruce) Hobkirk, Andrea (Cameron) Falt, Sarah (Vinny) Kumar, Scott (Michele Logan) Campbell, Joel (Marina Misuric) McCain, Ian Campbell, Lachlan Campbell, six great-grandchildren, cousins Niall Hannigan, Belfast, N. Ireland and Alexandra Hannigan, London, England and many friends. Terry was born in Burnaby on February 20, 1921, an only child to Fred and Annie (nee Harrington) Hannigan. Shortly after his birth, his father succumbed to injuries sustained in the First World War and he was raised by his mother and his maternal grandparents. Burnaby was a small agricultural and logging town in those days; Dad felt he had an idyllic childhood and that he was lucky to have lived his life in the best of times. He appreciated all the opportunities the 20th century had to offer.

Please join us in Celebrating the Life and Memory of our mom Phyll Nelson on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 11:00 am at Desert Gardens Senior Centre, 540 Seymour Street, Kamloops, BC. A light lunch will be served.

He began work as a surveyor for the City of Vancouver after high school, retiring in 1975 as Superintendent of Sanitation. He served as a signalman in the Canadian Navy during the Second World War. He and Doris (nee Baldwin) were married on May 20, 1950 in Burnaby; their love affair lasted almost 68 years. Dad was a handyman extraordinaire – he could make and fix anything. He built their first home on Irmin Street in South Burnaby where every nail was hammered by hand and he did all the wiring and plumbing too! Irmin Street neighbours became lifelong friends. Their house is one of the few original houses on the street still standing.

It was a wooden clinker built which he lovingly restored. Scores of children and adults learned to waterski behind “13K33982” at Tribune Bay on Hornby Island. Four other boats followed, in which over the years, Mom and Dad cruised up and down the BC Coast. Dad had a plaque in their last boat – Starquest IV – that read “A boat is a hole in the water into which one pours money”. They felt it was money well spent as they shared many wonderful boating excursions with family and friends.

He was a kind, gentle man with a raucous, infectious laugh, always willing to help anyone when needed. Terry lived 96 years in Burnaby before he and Mom moved to Kamloops last year. Thank you to Royal Inland Hospital Emergency Department, Dr. C. Dusik and to Kamloops Seniors Village for your wonderful care and compassion for our Dad. A Celebration of Life for Terry and Doris will take place on Saturday, May 26, 2018 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at Burnaby Mountain Clubhouse, 7600 Halifax Street, Burnaby, BC. Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society, 405 – 235 1st Avenue, Kamloops, BC V2C 3J4 would be appreciated. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

He married Betty in 1965 in Clinton and they settled in Savona raising their boys. Dad worked most of his life in the logging industry and became a Logging Truck Owner/Operator in 1984. He was well known in the industry and he and his dog George, his faithful companion, hauled many loads together, he retired in 2005. Dad enjoyed the outdoors, camping, snowmobiling, fishing and Kamloops Blazer games with his grandkids.

Obituaries & In Memoriam Lori Palm (Lamoureux, Keibel)

Bruce Letz

November 7,1935 - May 13, 2018

1951 – 2018

Mothers Day! The day we lost our beautiful Mom, Grams, Auntie and Friend. The day you hope will never come. She left us quickly, quietly and peacefully, just the way she would have planned it. She was the captain of our team, the glue that held us together and the MOM that was always so much more than “just a MOM”.

Arthur Field June 2, 1928 – May 2, 2018 Arthur was born in Calgary on June 2, 1928, shortly thereafter the family moved to Wetaskawin, Alberta to farm. He later moved to Edmonton to go to school and to do odd jobs. Later in 1948, Arthur moved to BC in the North Thompson Valley to log in Clearwater, BC.

Bruce Letz of Kamloops, BC, was born on May 28, 1951 in Edson, Alberta and passed away suddenly in Kamloops on May 3, 2018 at 66 years of age.

We will honour her forever!

Bruce is survived by his daughter Becki Rose Taylor (Brad), his mother Dorothy Letz, brother Doug Letz, sister Leslie Maydaniuk (Ken) and by two grandchildren Kurtis and Cherelle. He was predeceased in 2016 by his father Philip Letz and by his brother Blain Letz in 1982.

Lori is survived by her three girls Julie McKay, Shelley Colliver Trew (Gary) and Rhonda Clark (Jim) as well as two grandsons Jason McKay (Tasha) and Brock Colliver (Kimberlee) and two great-grandsons Luca McKay and Carter McKay.

Bruce achieved his high school education and then worked with heavy equipment with his dad Phil’s Backhoe. He was a member of the Anavets and Bruce enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, hunting and camping.

There will be no service at Lori’s request.

There will be a Celebration of Bruce’s Life at the Cottonwood Seniors Centre, 730 Cottonwood Avenue, Kamloops, BC on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 1:00 pm.

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 This earth is only one.

From the sorrows and the tears, This Week, when we began telling stories from within the In a place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no dayswe’d and years. community. To celebrate our anniversary, like to hear yours.

DO YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO…

Think how she must be wishing, That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness,

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