Winds whip up fire on Shuswap Road An evacuation centre opened Thursday afternoon for residents displaced by blaze TIM PETRUK, JESSICA WALLACE
KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK
The grass fire burning east of Sun Rivers and visible throughout Kamloops was estimated to be 60 hectares in size as of KTW press time Thursday afternoon. “Right now, our main priority is protecting structures,” said BC Wildfire Service information officer Marla Catherall. The BC Wildfire Service send air and ground crews to the fire after Kamloops Fire Rescue had initially responded to the blaze. Nearly 50 firefighters, multiple air tankers, one helicopter and fire investigators responded to the fire. Early reports indicated the fire was moving uphill away from residences on Shuswap Road and that it was spreading quickly. Videos posted on social media showed the fire burning uphill and to the west, initially. “The winds are pushing east, so it is highly visible in the community,” Catherall told KTW Thursday afternoon. The call came in around 11:45 a.m. for a grass fire behind residences at 830 Shuswap Rd. Fire crews said they could see smoke en route to the fire and there were reports of one residence threatened. Wildfire service crews were later called out around noon as ground crews reported the fire had crested the hill behind the residences. Kamloops RCMP closed Shuswap Road from Lafarge west to the Yellowhead Highway and the road remained closed as of KTW press time. RCMP said no structures have been damaged or injuries reported from the fire, but ambulance crews are on standby in the area. Mel Seymour lives at 820 Shuswap Rd. and had come home for lunch when the fire started. “I was just home five minutes. Walked in. Turned on the news, they said, ‘Oh, fire. East Shuswap.’

I looked out the window, it’s right on my land!’” While he did not see what started the fire, Seymour said it took off quickly with help from the wind. He noted the blaze was burning toward open grasslands on the bench above his house. “If that fire gets into that grass, it’ll run,” he said. “Right down here it’s sage, you see it? That’s why it’s burning really good. Because sage just goes up like nothing. It’s pretty tall sage, too.” Another resident in the area who lives in the Sage Meadows Trail mobile home park was packing up and leaving around 1:45 p.m. He said the fire was half a mile to a mile away from his home. At around 1 p.m. wildfire service air tankers could be seen dropping retardant on the blaze.
Sun Rivers sent a notice to all residents just after 1 p.m. saying that the Tk’emlups Indian Band has issued a wildfire alert for properties along Shuswap Road. Sun Rivers resident Mike Bielby said he could see flames from the parking lot of the Talasa apartments, where a group had gathered Thursday afternoon. “You definitely see flames creeping up the mountain side,” he told KTW from the scene, noting flames along the front side of Mt. Peter. Bielby said the flames were still kilometres from the resort community but the experience was “unnerving.” He had not packed bags nor been evacuated when he spoke to KTW but said he has mentally prepared a list of items he would grab. Corix Utilities, the company
that handles irrigation for the Big Horn Golf Course, confirmed to KTW it would activate its irrigation systems as a buffer between the fire and the community as a preventative measure. Assistant Fire Chief Steve Robinson said Tk’emlups te Secwepemc has set up an evacuation centre at Sk’elep Secwepemc School, located at 365 Powwow Trail, which is available to anyone displaced by the fire. While he could provide no exact number of residents evacuated, he said a trailer park on Shuswap Road was issued an evacuation order. The evacuation centre was opened at 3 p.m. and as of 3:30 p.m. was awaiting its first evacuee. Water and air conditioning was available for those who attended.

Kamloops is blazing a trail in British Columbia. The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) announced on Wednesday the River City will be the first municipality in the province to operate a governmentowned cannabis store when recreational pot is legalized on Oct. 17. The store will occupy a nearly 3,000-square-foot space in Columbia Place Shopping Centre in Sahali and operate under the BC Cannabis Stores moniker. Columbia Place also houses the Signature BC Liquor Store, while Save-On-Foods sells B.C. wines. The cannabis store will open in the space next to Save-OnFoods that until recently housed The Dollar Store, which has moved a few units down and into another storefront in the strip mall. “The selection of this location was based on a number of factors, including municipal readiness for the zoning of cannabis retail operations and site suitability,” the branch stated in a news release. “The LDB will apply for municipal approval of the store site when the City of Kamloops begins accepting applications for non-medical cannabis retails outlets in September.” City of Kamloops CAO David Trawin said the city has been working with the provincial government as legislation is being changed. A business licensing process has yet to be finalized by the city as it awaits provincial regulations. That includes hashing out business licensing fees, which Trawin said will depend on factors such as whether or not the province will provide cannabis inspectors, as it does with liquor. It costs $196.40 for a liquor retail store licence in Kamloops. Trawin said it is unlikely that the cost of retail cannabis store
business licences will be similar to liquor retail store licences. “No,” he said. “I think based upon other cities and past experiences and what happens in terms of law enforcement and other sides of that, it’s going to be a higher fee — much higher fee.” When Colorado legalized marijuana, he noted, the City of Denver had to hire additional inspectors to deal with issues. When the province wraps up its regulation process, the city will determine whether any bylaws require consideration. Trawin said that will come before council soon. Meanwhile, Mayor Ken Christian earlier told KTW he expects between two to three provincial cannabis stores to eventually open in Kamloops. He welcomed news from the branch on Wednesday. “Kamloops city council supports the work of the provincial
government as they map out the future retail cannabis landscape in B.C.,” he said in a press release. “Their mixed-model for cannabis sales, allowing both public and private retail, has many benefits to B.C. communities.” About 20 staff will be hired at the Sahali location, including a store manager, assistant manager and cannabis consultants. Jobs will be posted in the next week online at bcldbcannabisupdates. com/opportunities/careers. The LDB said it is considering a “number of locations” across municipalities for the rollout of BC Cannabis Stores and is focused on “ensuring a careful and efficient rollout that will provide the best possible customer experience and meet all health and safety regulations.” The province has appointed the LDB as the sole wholesale distributor of recreational cannabis. It also announced on Wednesday it had signed memorandums of understanding with 31 licensed producers (12 of which are B.C.-based), including more than 150 strains. Among those licensed producers is Hydropothecary, the Quebec-based company in which former Kamloops mayor and provincial health minister Terry Lake has invested and is its vice-president of corporate responsibility. Retailers will include a mix of public and private locations, with the LDB responsible for licensing and monitoring private stores and communities handling business licensing. The province has launched an online portal for those interested in applying for a licence to sell recreational cannabis, once that becomes available. Kamloops has designated specific zones in which recreational cannabis can be sold and the city said the LDB will only issue licences to retail operators that have received “a council resolution supporting the operators site-specific provincial licence application.”

POWER OF ATTORNEY IN THE US -
Do you have children who are United States residents, and whom you plan to make your Power of Attorney? Did you know that these children must meet IRS reporting requirements? The IRS states that a person exercising authority over another individual’s affairs (ie authority over a bank account via Power of Attorney), must meet reporting requirements (known as Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts, or “FBAR”). Even if your child has not signed the Power of Attorney you have granted NOR acted under it, your appointment of your child may still be enough to trigger the FBAR filing requirement. Penalties for not filing an FBAR can be severe; a willful violation penalty is the greater of $100,000 or 50% of the account, or criminal charges. There are many legal implications to giving Power of Attorney. When choosing your estate planning tools, contact our Wills & Estates team to discuss options that best suit your circumstances.

Gateway may seek injunction COMPANY CITES INCIDENTS BETWEEN PICKETERS, VEHICLES MICHAEL POTESTIO

Gateway Casinos intends to seek a B.C. Supreme Court injunction if picketers in Kamloops don’t get out of the way of customers attempting to enter Cascades Casino. Unionized workers at Cascades — and at three Gateway-owned casinos in the Okanagan — have been on strike since June 29, with wages the main issue. Gateway spokeswoman Tanya Gabara told KTW the company has learned of incidents between picketers and customers in Kamloops and characterized striking workers as deliberately stepping into the path of vehicle traffic. “Fortunately, no one has been hurt from these reckless acts, but if BCGEU picketers continue to behave in this way, Gateway intends to seek an injunction from the B.C. Supreme Court to compel compliance with the law,” Gabara said via email. She said while the company respects the employees’ right to picket, she noted it is illegal for picketers to delay, obstruct or impede individuals from crossing a picket line. “This means they must get out of the way of vehicles who wish to enter or leave our site,” Gabara said. Some 200 workers locally are on strike, with groups of employees pacing back and forth along the sidewalk off Versatile Drive at the casino entrance in an attempt to discourage people from crossing

along with table games. Slot machines remain open. While visiting the picket line in Kamloops on Monday, BCGEU president Stephanie Smith said she heard reports of picketers being struck by vehicles attempting to breach the picket line. She said as long as members are walking, they are considered pedestrians and have the right of way. “No one is blockading, stopping in front of cars, putting their hands up and not allowing people to go,” she said. “They are in constant motion, which is perfectly within their rights.” Police have two files related to incidents from July 6 and July 8, but in both cases conflicting reports from those involved have left Mounties unsure if anyone was actually struck. City of Kamloops bylaw services manager John Ramsay told KTW the picketers are not breaching bylaws. “As long as they don’t impede pedestrian traffic flow, then we have no concerns,” Ramsay said, noting the city hasn’t received any complaints. Striking employee Cameron Smith said picketers are not trying to cause traffic backups
BARGAINING UPDATE The union and the company were back at the negotiating table for three days this week — from Monday to Wednesday. While BCGEU president Smith told KTW on Monday the union had submitted a slightly modified wage proposal to Gateway, Gabara said the bargaining committee has yet to do that. “At noon [Wednesday], the BCGEU announced that they are not prepared to provide a wage proposal,” Gabara said via email. “After three days of mediation and almost two weeks on strike, the BCGEU said they cannot give their wage proposal until July 20.” At the start of the second day, Gateway proposed wage rate increases between 2.4 per cent and 13 per cent in the first year of the collective agreement, in addition to two per cent each year after that. BCGEU executive vice president, Doug Kinna said the union has in fact submitted its wage proposal, to which the company hasn’t responded, adding that the company is asking the union to compile a package of all its proposals on the collective agreement. “I don’t know why they’ve asked for a package out of the blue. It just slows everything up. We’d be happy to go back to the table and start talking about the proposals that are already laying there,” Kinna said.

Police investigating more racist sign graffiti MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Police are now investigating reports of multiple mushroompicking advisory signs having been defaced around the Elephant Hill wildfire area. Two signs, erected by the Skeetchestn, High Bar, Whispering Pines and Bonaparte bands responsible for issuing mushroom picking permits, in the Cache Creek area and one on Loon Lake Road near Clinton have been defaced, RCMP Cpl. Mike Mucha told KTW. Those details came to his attention earlier this week while he was making inquiries with the bands regarding a mushroompicking sign that was defaced in Kamloops up Lac Du Bois Road, which police are now investigating. That sign was covered in large red spray-painted letters saying “F— Indians.” It also contained the white supremacist sayings “white is right” and “white power,” as well as the sentence “Indians have had enough” in smaller black writing. “It’s not so much an isolated
incident here. It seems to be a culmination of stuff,” said Mucha, adding he’s not sure if the three other signs contain racist graffiti like the one in Kamloops, as officers are now trying to visit each sign. Another sign was found defaced on a forest-service road near the Ashcroft Airport last weekend, which did contain racist remarks. The sign had the words “white power” written over top the phrase “Secwepemc Territory” in what appears to be black marker. A portion of the words “You are on the unceded territory of the Sepwepemc (Shuswap) people” is also scribbled out. He said the RCMP is trying to get possession of the sign that was defaced in Lac Du Bois and is waiting to hear back from the Bonaparte band, which was involved in removing that sign on the Canada Day long weekend. The culprit could be looking at mischief charges if found by investigators, Mucha said. He said police opened a file after being notified of its existence by local media.

NO REASON TO HIKE POT BUSINESS FEES
hy would stores that legally sell marijuana face businesslicence fees far in excess of what owners of liquor stores now pay to Kamloops City Hall? It costs $196.40 for a liquor retail store licence in Kamloops. City CAO David Trawin told KTW it is unlikely that the cost of retail cannabis store business licences will be similar to liquor retail store licences. “No,” he said. “I think based upon other cities and past experiences and what happens in terms of law enforcement and other sides of that, it’s going to be a higher fee — much higher fee.” Trawin cited the City of Denver, which in 2016 was expecting to see $28 million in revenue from marijuana sales, $9 million of which was set to be spent on regulation, enforcement, education, and public health initiatives. There are vast differences between Denver and Kamloops. For starters, Denver has more than 1,000 legal marijuana dispensaries; Kamloops might have 15 to 20. And education and public-health initiatives are the domain of the provincial and federal governments in Canada, not city hall. There is nothing to suggest the manner and cost of enforcement and regulation of legal public and private marijuana stores will be any different than what now exists for legal public and private liquor stores, which includes provincial inspectors. Minors will not be aiming to buy weed in such stores, which will have identical ID procedures that now make it near impossible for those under 19 from buying liquor in stores (teens will likely continue to buy their pot from neighbourhood dealers). Mounties will likely have less work to do once marijuana is legal since it is no longer a controlled substance. Since marijuana use is so widespread now, why would there suddenly be a rash of drug-driving incidents come Oct. 20? The reaction to the coming legalization of pot is akin to the comical Reefer Madness “documentary” of many decades ago. Legalization will arrive and we will soon realize it is simply another type of business that needs licensing — nothing more and nothing less.

The vocal minority speaks
here’s really no harm in having city councillors weigh in on issues beyond city hall — unless doing so comes at a cost to taxpayers. Five Kamloops councillors have created a bit of a stir by getting together to sign a letter that publicly urges voters in this fall’s provincewide referendum to adopt proportional representation as our electoral system. The quintet — Donovan Cavers, Dieter Dudy, Tina Lange, Arjun Singh and Denis Walsh — believe what all proponents of PR believe. That belief is that only a form of PR will truly result in the wishes of the electorate in that it will come closer to mirroring a political party’s percentage of votes with the percentage of seats it claims in the legislature. They believe such a system is preferable to the current firstpast-the-post form of voting, in which the candidate with the most votes in a riding is elected, despite often not receiving a majority of votes. Cases in point: Cathy McLeod, Kamloops’ Conservative MP, was elected in 2015 with 35 per cent of the vote. Peter Milobar was elected MLA for Kamloops-North Thompson in 2017 with 48 per cent of the vote. The campaign featuring proponents of both electoral styles has begun and will culminate with a mail-in vote between Oct. 22 and Nov. 30. There has been some criticism of the five councillors’ decision to pen the letter (see the

MUSINGS letters to the editor on the next page and read some comments online at kamloopsthisweek. com), with many arguing they should focus on local matters over which they have control. The same was said a few years ago when city council spent $200,000 of taxpayer dollars on an independent study of the proposed mine that, as predicted by this writer and many others, duplicated what was already done by the provincial government. That expenditure on an issue over which city council had no jurisdiction remains this administration’s most egregious waste of money. This week’s letter from the council quintet, however, is harmless. It costs taxpayers nothing and, if a one-page letter from five part-time politicians is enough to sway opinion, we have much greater problems to tackle with respect to the electorate. There is nothing stopping the remaining councillors from adding their names to the letter
or from speaking out in favour of the current first-past-the-post system, as Mayor Ken Christian did in a roundabout way when telling KTW reporter Jessica Wallace he did not believe in using city council status to influence matters outside of the civic jurisdiction. (Christian noted that adding seats to the legislature will not make government more efficient, effective nor accountable. It will only cost more. He’s right. Canada has far too many politicians compared to other democracies. B.C. alone has one MLA for every 52,000 people, which is an expensive, and unnecessary, luxury). Nor is there any obstacle in the way of Joe Sixpack if he chooses to pick a side in the referendum debate and go about convincing people to vote his way. While city councillors deal with local issues, there will always be matters that seep into regional, provincial and federal waters, including recycling, climate-change initiatives and policing, to name but a few. It is interesting to note the more vocal online critics continue to proclaim much will change at city hall on election day. Identical claims were made prior to last year’s byelection and before the 2014 civic election and the candidates targeted by the internet posse continue to get elected. Perhaps these keyboard critics are truly the vocal minority? firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
THOUGHTS ON COUNCILLORS’ PR LETTER
A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online
Editor: Re: (‘Kamloops council quintet urges voters to choose proportional representation,’ July 11): I resent the five Kamloops councillors — Donovan Cavers, Tina Lange, Dieter Dudy, Denis Walsh and Arjun Singh — telling me how I should vote on the referendum question on proportional representation. The time it took for them to concoct the letter would have

been better used for city council business. It seems to me it is time the five councillors should be put to bed and voted out in the next election. I would think the electorate overall doesn’t need them to tell us what to do. Bob Currie Kamloops Editor: Re: (‘Kamloops council quintet urges voters to choose
proportional representation,’ July 11): If proportional representation is such a good idea, I wonder if our five civic politicians are willing to walk the talk. Maybe we should add a referendum on a ward system in the Oct. 20 civic election. That alternative voting system “reflects the diversity of views that exist in society” and will allow more “stable and productive city policy deci-
sions,” as quoted by the five Kamloops councillors in their letter urging voters to choose proportional representation in this fall’s provincial referendum. With five votes, all it would need is a motion, a second, discussion and a vote in which five make it a majority. Let’s watch and hear what happens from here. Ray Jolicoeur Kamloops
DEALING WITH IMPARK IS NOT RARE, BUT CAN BE UNFAIR Editor: Re: (‘Not Impark’s finest moment,’ July 4): The problem Peter Roberts encountered at Royal Inland Hospital — he received a parking ticket between the time he parked and walked to the machine to buy a parking pass — isn’t rare. I had it happen to me a few months back.
I went for an appointment at the hospital, but was late as there were no stalls available. I finally parked, ran to the kiosk, waited and paid for my time. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the receipt as I was running late. When I came out, I had a notice on my car. I noticed it was issued about a minute after I parked, while I was at the kiosk,

waiting in line. I called Impark, but was told that without a receipt, nothing could be done. I argued that I had paid, but they wouldn’t budge.

OPINION City is good and getting better
ext week, council will adopt the city’s annual report for 2017 — and the last of this edition of council. While I have only had the honour of serving you as mayor for the final year of this term, it is important to reflect on all four years. Look at what we said we wanted to accomplish through our strategic plan and measure what we actually achieved. Any one year is only a snapshot in time for a city, but it is crucial that we capture that snapshot and review our progress. Although the 2016 census states we have a population of 90,280, my sense — and the indicators from our building division — is that we are probably closer to the 93,000 mark and will likely be home to 100,000 by 2025. We need to plan for that orderly growth and put services in place that small cities are expected to provide and taxpayers can afford to fund. The latter portion of the preceding paragraph is the tricky part. Everyone has long wish lists and their priorities are as different as day and night. It is up to council to listen to all competing ideas and deliver on those that have broader support in the most efficient way possible.
KEN CHRISTIAN View From
CITY HALL Staff have a critical role to play and the recent re-organization at city hall has shown that bundling the way we deliver services has made access easier for residents and has made work units more nimble and responsive. The environment has always been a priority for Kamloops council. The adoption of the recent anti-idling bylaw is a small example of the commitment we share in making our city more sustainable, less polluting and more sensitive to significant impacts of climate change. During our four-year term, there have been a number of green initiatives, but the most important in my mind have been those that focus on active and alternate transportation. I have received much of criticism over the Peterson Creek Park multi-use pathway project, but I am confident that when it opens this fall, residents — and in particular the TRU com-
munity — will embrace it as an enjoyable and efficient way to get to school and to work. Recycling and waste management still needs work, but the city’s acquisition of the Owl Road dump was and remains an important part of our solidwaste management plan. On the economy, we have helped transition the city from a resourcebased city to a knowledge-based community. This does not mean we turn our back on the important contributions forestry, mining and agriculture play in Kamloops. The 5,000 direct and indirect jobs those industries create are critical to our tax base and we continue to try to support them through innovation and adjustments to our heavy industry tax allocation. We are also excited to promote tourism and hospitality opportunities in Kamloops. We now greet almost two-million visitors a year and they contribute $450 million in economic impact. We continue to support small-business attraction and retention through Venture Kamloops and have a keen interest in the tech sector. Under the livability tab, we have had some victories and some serious challenges. I have often spoken locally and provincially about the scourge of the opioid crisis and the

tragic loss of life we experience. Drug use continues to feed other social problems and an estimated 30 per cent of our homeless say they find themselves in their position as a result of substance abuse. Opioids continue to be an issue in street-level crime, but our investment in RCMP resources and, in particular, criminal intelligence has started to turn things around. We have also made great strides in addressing affordable housing. While not there yet, council has made important decisions in the last 12 months that will ensure a roof will be over the heads of seniors, students and those who now spent more than 30 per cent of their disposable income on housing. We have more to do and are committed to working with the new provincial government to reach our goal of 2,500 units. Under governance, council has worked hard on relationships. In particular, we are proud of our work with Tk’emlups te Secwepemc and our community to community forums that have resulted in a number of joint projects that improve both sides of the river, including transit service and recreation. We also value our relationship with TRU and are working on a number of projects that celebrate the importance
of the university, the students and the residents of Kamloops. The law clinic and the success of the Kamloops Innovation Centre are but a few examples. We continue to work with the ThompsonNicola Regional District on a number of fronts, including the regional economy, library-service enhancements and the ever-important health files. We have had success in attracting specialists, but remain on the hunt for general practitioners and are keen to turn the sod this fall on the new patient-care tower at Royal Inland Hospital. With respect to my favourite area — infrastructure — we recently completed the North Thompson water-intake project and a sanitarysewer restoration job along Tranquille Road. The successive bad winters have taken their toll on our roads, but restorative work is underway throughout the city. And let’s never forget we enjoy some of the best drinking water in Canada. As mayor, I often hear from people that have concerns and I accept that as part of my job. What keeps me coming to work every day is the complete confidence this city is good and getting better.

LOCAL NEWS RIDING FOR RESEARCH
Riders Julie Ann Chiodo (left) and Olivia Mendicino left Kamloops on Wednesday as they continued their ride east to Toronto. The pair is riding from Vancouver to Toronto to raise awareness of, and money for, the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. They have raised $10,000 to date and hope to hit $20,000. Both women, who met as young soccer players and later played on the same university team, have family members who have been affected by the disease. Pulmonary fibrosis is a type of interstitial lung disease that affects the lace-like network of tissue that supports the air sacs in lungs.

New housing construction in Kamloops could exceed forecasts for the year, following a strong start in the first six months. Through June, builders have poured foundations for 367 units in the River City, compared to 186 over the same six months last year. “Kamloops is doing very well this year and really what we were forecasting for the next few years was for housing starts to maintain the pace we saw in 2017,” Canadian Mortgage and Housing
Corporation senior market analyst Taylor Pardy told KTW. More than half of those units are apartments, at 212, up significantly from five during the same time period last year. They include 73 rental apartment units and 139 condominium units. Pardy said builders are responding to housing demands in Kamloops. He said the population continues to grow, primarily among two demographics: 25- to 44-year-olds and the 65-plus population. They are moving to Kamloops from within B.C. and from Prairie provinces, he said. “Ultimately, what it represents is the community is growing,” Pardy said.
“People need places to live, so there’s greater demand for housing.” Kamloops’ construction is part of a greater trend in the province. New housing construction starts are up in Prince George, Vernon and Vancouver during the first half of the year compared to 2017. Kelowna, meanwhile, is slightly down after a record year for housing starts last year, which was driven primarily by rental construction. It has seen 1,287 starts in 2018, compared to 1,855 starts in the first six months of 2017. “We’re continuing to see some strong housing starts in the Interior of B.C.,” Pardy said.
Bank of Canada raises interest rate CANADIAN PRESS
OTTAWA — Undaunted by expanding trade risks, Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz raised the interest rate on Wednesday and signalled the economy’s resilience is keeping him on a hiking trajectory. The quarter-point increase, the central bank’s first move in six months, brought the rate to 1.5 per cent.
It was Poloz’s fourth hike over the last 12 months and marked the first time the rate has been this high since December 2008. The central bank will announce on Sept. 5 if another hike is on the way. This week’s decision to raise the lending rate — a move that prompted some of the big banks to start raising their prime rates — arrived in the middle of a trade dis-
pute between Canada and the United States that is expected to hurt both economies. Poloz made the call even though he warned the economy should brace for larger impacts from mounting trade uncertainty. The tariff fight is expected to shave two-thirds of a percentage from Canada’s economic growth by the end of 2020, the bank estimated. Poloz said despite the com-
bined effects of the tariffs, the bank still projects Canadian growth to average a promising level of two per cent over the next few years, just slightly above its potential and with inflation already on target. The bank expects the negative blow of the trade policies to be largely offset by higher oil prices and the stronger U.S. economy — both of which, on balance, will benefit Canada.

LOCAL NEWS People die on the streets for various reasons, including from heart attacks and terminal diseases, but the opioid crisis has contributed to an influx of overdose deaths.

It starts at 11 a.m. and all are welcome to attend. KTW FILE PHOTO

When someone dies on the street, obituaries aren’t often placed in the newspaper. Without family or friends, nor an estate to cover costs, the province as a last resort will pay for a simple burial or cremation. When that happens, there’s no flower arrangements ordered nor refreshments served at a service. It has left a group of Kamloops residents wondering if that’s the best way to honour someone’s life. “A lot of these people just die out on their own,” Bud Forbes told KTW. Forbes, who used to run the Out of the Cold extreme weather shelter program at St. Paul’s Cathedral, is among organizers of an inaugural memorial service for people who die on the streets in Kamloops. The service will be held this Saturday at the downtown church. People die on the streets for various reasons, including from heart attacks and terminal dis-
eases, but the opioid crisis has contributed to an influx of overdose deaths. Names of the deceased are being collected from agencies such as ASK Wellness, the Emerald Centre and New Life Community Kamloops. Forbes expects about 30 people will be honoured. Glen Currie has been living on the streets of Kamloops for four years and said it’s important to honour those who have passed. Currie was disappointed to learn he had missed the funeral of a friend who died of asthma last year. “It’s hard to get any information when you’re on the streets,” he said. “I don’t have a phone. I don’t have the internet. I don’t get any kind of information from anybody. To find out about it, it’s almost impossible unless I hear about it from word of mouth.” Relying on word of mouth, however, sometimes leads to confusion. When someone disappears, the worst is assumed and word travels. Currie said he’ll hear of someone’s death and later learn
that person went to jail or into treatment. “Man, there’s a guy, he friggin’ died three times,” Currie said. “Then, there, he’s walking down the street.” People at St. Paul’s Cathedral are doing their best to spread word about the service, which will include a pastor from New Life Community Kamloops and a healing circle with drumming by Tk’emlups te Secwepemc wellness counsellor Dave Manuel. Names of those who died in the past year or so will be inscribed on rocks, which will then be placed in a garden at the church-owned blue house next to the cathedral. St. Paul’s Cathedral is located at the corner of Nicola Street and Fourth Avenue. To include a name to be honoured, call 250819-3187. The one-hour service will begin at 11 a.m., to be followed by a light lunch, which will run from noon to 2 p.m. All are welcome to attend. The goal is to stage the memorial annually on the second weekend in July.

Startups looking to fill busing void
NEED A RIDE?
Poparide recommends a $25 fee for trips to Vancouver from Kamloops, plus 15 per cent in fees paid to the company. A search of the poparide.com site on Wednesday found four drivers heading to Vancouver this Friday and Saturday, with three drivers charging $30 and one driver charging $21. One driver is also offering a return ride on Sunday. In addition, there were seven people seeking rides to Vancouver between this week and September. As far as safety goes, the system relies on user reviews and information collected about people, such as bank details, to hold them accountable for behaviour. It also has a zero-tolerance reporting system that blocks problem users. The service has already taken off in some areas. From Vancouver to Squamish, rides are available almost every half-hour, Devellennes said. He said the service could also help smaller rural communities in B.C. “You don’t need that many people for it to work,” he said. “It’s more a matter of getting the word out and getting it going.”

As Greyhound prepares to park its buses in Western Canada, startup companies are hoping to find a spot in the abandoned passenger-service market. Poparide CEO and co-founder Flo Devellennes believes the Vancouver carpooling startup is poised to help fill demand by connecting passengers with drivers who have empty seats in their vehicles. Devellennes said the national average for vehicle occupancy is 1.3 seats filled per vehicle. “As a driver, you’ve got empty seats in your car, which is essentially empty supply,” he said. About 100,000 users have signed up across the country since the company’s inception in 2010 and a similar idea has taken off in Europe. TechCrunch reported in April that the French carpooling platform BlaBlaCar has 60-million users in 22 countries. “Once it gets going, it’s very powerful,” Devellennes said. Meanwhile, Spare Labs CEO Kristoffer Vik Hansen sees Greyhound’s departure from British Columbia as an opportunity to rethink public transportation as we know it. Instead of regular bus routes and schedules, smart technology offered by his company could allow buses to run based on demand. He said that effectively solves ridership issues. “With the advent of smartphones, cloud computing, it makes it possible to run different kinds of transportation services,” Vik Hansen said. B.C.’s Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Clair Trevena said the province will speaking with service providers, the private sector and local government in coming months to “discuss how we can ensure people have access to safe, reliable and affordable transportation to get from one community to the next.” Vik Hansen hopes the province will look to small tech companies with big ideas. “I see this as an opportunity to try something different,” he said. While ride-hailing service Uber has been caught up in red tape in B.C., Devellennes advised against
painting all disrupters with the same brush, noting his company operates within carpooling rules outlined in the B.C. Transportation Act. In essence, the law states the driver and passengers must share a trip with a common destination, the driver can undertake no more than one trip per day, the driver can be paid for costs, but cannot make a profit and the seating capacity of the vehicle being used is limited to a maximum 10 passengers. Devellennes said Poparide caps prices at 15 cents per kilometre per seat and restricts trips to once a day, which he said helps ensure the service is used legally. “We’ve been operating legally ever since we started the company,” he said. There are a few other online ride-sharing programs in Kamloops — including ridesharing.com and kangaride.com — none of which as of this week had any rides available to Vancouver. In addition, there are ride-sharing categories on various online classifieds websites, while Thompson Rivers University has its TRU Rideshare program.

Arrest follows pepper-spray scrap A pepper-spray battle on the North Shore on Thursday saw a Kamloops Mountie emerge the victor. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said an officer was on a beach along the Thompson River at 9 a.m., attempting to arrest a man for breaching probation, when the suspect ran away.
As the Mountie gave chase, the suspect turned and pepper-sprayed the officer in the face. The foot chase ended in the 200-block of Tranquille Road, where the officer caught the suspect and used his pepper spray in the arrest. Shelkie said traffic on Tranquille Road was temporarily delayed while paramedics treated the offi-
cer and the suspect. Neither received any injuries, aside from the effects of the pepper spray. The 26-year-old man suspect is from Kamloops and was previously known to police. Shelkie said the Crown will decide if charges in addition to the breach of probation charge are warranted.
Body of Kelowna man found near airport Police have determined human remains found last week near Kamloops Airport belong to a man reported missing in Kelowna more than two months ago. Martin Thiffault was reported missing on April
24, five days after he last had contact with acquaintances. Police said the remains were discovered along the banks of the Thompson River by a passerby on July 6.
RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said the discovery was not made public until Thiffault’s identity was confirmed. “There was nothing suspicious — nothing of a criminal nature,” she said.
Mounties want to help you deter thieves Kamloops Mounties and auxiliary officers are visiting neighbourhoods this month to increase awareness of auto crime. Auto crime prevention notices
will be left on vehicle windshields, either thanking owners for securing their vehicle or advising them how they can deter auto theft. Tips to avoid auto crime include:
don’t keep spare keys in the vehicle, invest in a good anti-theft device, close windows and lock doors, don’t leave possessions in the vehice and avoid parking behind fences
or hedges, engrave your stereo and other onboard valuables with your driver’s-licence number and light your driveway all night or park in well-lit areas near pedestrian traffic.

Sorry for spit incident A Kamloops man who spat in the face of a police officer while being arrested following a 2017 altercation with a tenant will not have a criminal record if he can stay out of trouble for 18 months. Alex John Simpson pleaded guilty in Kamloops provincial court on Thursday to one count each of assaulting a peace officer and breaching conditions of an undertaking. The 25-year-old electrician apologized in court for his actions on May 27, 2017, when police were called to his home during a dispute he was having with a woman who rented from him. Simpson was placed in the back of a police car, where he repeatedly smashed his head into a plastic partition. When he was being let out of the car at the RCMP detachment, he spat a combination of blood and saliva in the face of the officer who opened the door. Simpson was very intoxicated at the time and later asked another officer to apologize to the Mountie on whom he spat. Nearly a year to the day later, less than two months ago, Simpson was arrested again after drunkenly becoming involved in a fight while camping near Chase. By the time police arrived, he had passed out. Simpson was on conditions requiring he abstain from drinking. “I’m severely sorry for my actions and I take full responsibility,” he said in court on Thursday. “We do not take it lightly because it’s a job we expect them to do and we don’t take it lightly because, when they’re assaulted, it’s our protection that is assaulted,” Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame said. Frame sided with defence lawyer Christopher Ross, who said a conditional discharge was not contrary to the public interest, noting Simpson’s status as a partner at a signinstallation company could be in jeopardy with a criminal record.

Airport on pace to set passenger-count record JESSICA WALLACE
In the first half of 2018, Kamloops Airport has seen a five per cent spike in passenger numbers compared to the same time last year. “We were pleasantly surprised at the numbers when they came,” manager of airport operations
Jeff Scherban said. Through June, 170,311 passengers have passed through Fulton Field, compared to 161,251 during the same six months in 2017. Scherban said two new services that were added in May and June have led to the increase. On May 1, WestJet increased frequency of its Kamloops to Calgary flight, adding an additional daily trip. On June 21, Air
Canada’s low-cost subsidiary, Air Canada Rouge, began thriceweekly direct flights between Kamloops and Toronto. “It’s been very well-received by the community, which has been great,” Scherben said. While passenger numbers are not yet available for that flight, Scherban is optimistic heading into the remainder of the year. Air Canada said flights must
exceed 80 per cent capacity at the end of the season to be considered for continuation after the trial run ends in October. The first flight from Toronto to Kamloops was at 66 per cent capacity. The second quarter saw a four per cent increase over the same three months in 2017. From April through June, 77,389 passengers passed through Fulton Field, com-
pared to 74,155 during the same period in 2017. Kamloops Airport has been breaking passenger records as of late — both monthly and quarterly marks — and Scherben said it is on pace to best its annual record, which was set in 2015. “We’re anticipating 325,000 passengers for the year, which would be a record for the Kamloops Airport,” he said.

teaching — something that is the key ingredient in the new provincial high school curriculum — with partnerships that bring real experiences to the process. For example, teachers at Brock Middle School were working with scientists at TRU to study water. The aim was to identify where the best place would be to create a community. That meant taking water samples in various areas with their own unique environments. The samples were tested on campus and the students were brought into that step through laptops — bring-
ing together science, math in the analyses and technology to pull it all together. “What a great way to switch them on to it,” Howe said of the learning experience. Rees said the new degree program, which runs for 12 months, is to prepare teachers to create such projects. She said there are teachers now doing it and the goal is make them aware of opportunities to partner in with faculties at TRU to bring more of a real-life feel to the learning.

WildSafeBC is reminding residents that a garbage can might as well be a picnic basket when it comes to attracting Yogi Bear and his pals. “All it takes is one bin,” Kamloops WildSafeBC community co-ordinator Courtney Hawkins told KTW. As part of an educational program geared at reducing humanwildlife conflict, Hawkins has been using yellow stickers to tag garbage bins left out in various city neighbourhoods after 9 p.m. A City of Kamloops bylaw, in effect from April 1 to Nov. 30, prohibits residents from placing garbage on the curb before 4 a.m. on collection day. Hawkins has tagged dozens of bins in violation of the bylaw. “It’s pretty comparable to last year,” she said. Some neighbourhoods have been more guilty than others. While 16 bins have been tagged in Valleyview and Juniper collectively, Aberdeen has 32 bins tagged. Westsyde leads the way,
with 51 bins tagged. Hawkins said it is usually a case of one neighbour putting out a bin early and others following suit. WildSafeBC statistics from 2014 to 2017 indicate the most significant attractant among black bears is garbage. Call volumes during that period reveal 18,385 were linked to waste, followed by livestock (1,876), compost (1,680) and bird feeders (1,165). Hawkins will be following up with door-to-door canvassing before the city’s bylaws department receives a call. She noted the Wildlife Act also legally puts the responsibility of managing attractants on homeowners. Section 33.2 of the Wildlife Act states “a person must not leave or place an attractant in, on or about any land or premises where there are or where there are likely to be people, in a manner in which the attractant could (a) attract dangerous wildlife to the land or premises, and (b) be accessible to dangerous wildlife.” “Everybody’s responsible for their own attractants,” Hawkins said.

Indigenous pipeline protesters take over park CLEARWATER TIMES
Members of the Secwepemc Nation have taken over North Thompson River Provincial Park, erecting tiny houses within the park gates, in protest against the Kinder Morgan pipeline. The park, about 90 minutes north of Kamloops, was host to an Indigenous cultural tattooing ceremony last weekend, closing to guests from July 6 to July 9, according to the Ministry of Environment. However, some
event participants have remained on site, saying they are occupying the park in protest against the contentious Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project. Kanahus Manuel, an activist who participated in events like the Dakota Access Pipeline protests at Standing Rock in the U.S., is in the provincial park and said in a statement that three tiny houses have been placed in the park. “Justin Trudeau has left us no choice. This pipeline violates our rights and endan-
gers our lands and waters. To stop it, we’re reclaiming our ancestral village and bringing our traditions back to life,” she said in a statement. The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion was bought by the federal government last month from Texas-based company Kinder Morgan. The expansion is set to increase the transport of bitumen to nearly 900,000 barrels of crude oil per day, running more than 1,000 kilometres from Edmonton to Burnaby. The tiny houses, one
of which is visible at the entrance of the park, are part a project by the Tiny House Warriors. Additional tiny houses are being constructed on the site, Manuel said. Led by Manuel, the Tiny House Warriors have a mission to stop the pipeline from crossing what it calls unceded Secwepemc territory, according to its website. “If Trudeau wants to build this pipeline, he will need to empty this village a second time; in doing so, he would make continued colo-

nization and cultural genocide part of his legacy of so-called reconciliation,” she said. Manuel said some of the pipeline goes through Secwepemc land. She said Secwepemc people should have the right to practise their ceremonies on what they feel is their own land and to be able to do so in peace. “This is what reconciliation looks like. For this past weekend, we’ve had this security gate and checkpoint here at the [park’s entrance] to really protect our ceremony because we’ve
had a bunch of racist Clearwater residents, settlers and people from the surrounding area … that came to force their way into our ceremonies,” she said. According to a map provided by Secwepemc members, the group’s land stretches from north of Valemount to south of Kamloops and includes Clearwater as well as the provincial park. But in a statement, Simpcw First Nation Chief Shelly Loring disputed the claims. “Only Simpcw has the authority to assert title and rights to the parklands,” she said.
“As an independent advocacy group, the Secwepemc Land Defenders do not have any authority to claim rights to our lands. In fact, in our view, the Secwepemc Land Defenders ought to have obtained Simpcw’s consent to hold the event on our lands.” Loring said she and the Simpcw band council also want to make clear the distinction between Simpcw First Nation, the Secwepemc Nation and the Secwepemc Land Defenders. “Traditionally, the Secwepemc collectively protected the territories of the Shuswap; however, each Secwepemc Nation was, and is, separate and independent, with its own territory boundaries within the larger Secwepemculecw,” she said.

There is no turning point yet in the Brexit saga
ven with U.S. President Donald Trump scheduled for a brief visit to the United Kingdom this week amid massive protests, it’s still all Brexit, all of the time in the sceptered isle. The long struggle over the nature of the deal that will define Britain’s relationship with the European Union post-exit allegedly reached a turning point last weekend. “They had nothing else to offer. They had no Plan B. She faced them down,” said a senior government official about the hardline Brexiteers after Prime Minister Theresa May got them to sign up to a so-called “soft Brexit” at a crisis cabinet meeting last week. But the armistice between the Leave and Remain factions in her fractious Conservative party lasted less than 48 hours.
GWYNNE DYER World
WATCH On Sunday morning, hardline Brexiteer David Davis, the ludicrously titled Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, reneged on his short-lived support of May’s negotiating goals and resigned in protest. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson followed suit, claiming May’s plan meant “the [Brexit] dream is dying, suffocated by needless selfdoubt.” The sheer fecklessness of the “Brexit dream” is epitomized by
Johnson, who first compared May’s negotiating plans to “polishing a turd,” then came around to supporting them for about 36 hours and finally resigned, saying they would reduce the UK to a “vassal state” with the “status of a colony” of the EU. Yet at no point in the discussion did either of them offer a coherent counter-proposal. And what is all this turmoil about? A negotiating position, devised by May with great difficulty two years after the referendum that yielded 52 per cent support for an undefined Brexit, which could never be accepted by the European Union. Its sole virtue was that it seemed possible to unite the Leave and Remain factions of the Conservative party behind it. But the unity imposed by May broke down before the weekend was over.
All four of the great offices of state — prime minister, chancellor (finance minister), foreign secretary and home secretary (interior minister) — are now held by Conservative politicians who voted Remain in the referendum. Yet they are unable to persuade their party to accept even a “soft Brexit” that preserves Britain’s existing access to its biggest trading partner, the EU. The Brexiteers’ power lies in their implicit threat to stage a revolt that overthrows May, fatally splits the Conservative party and precipitates an early election that brings the Labour party to power. They may not really have the numbers to do that, but May dares not test that assumption. So, horrified by the prospect of a Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn (who is regularly portrayed
by the right-wing media as a Vladimir Lenin in waiting), the Conservatives are doomed to cling desperately to power even though they can probably never deliver a successful Brexit. And time is running out. The United Kingdom will be leaving the European Union on March 29, 2019, whether or not there is a deal that maintains most of its current trade with the EU. In practice, the deadline for an agreement is in October, since time must be allowed for 27 other EU members to ratify the deal. If there is no deal, the UK simply crashes out and chaos ensues. The volume of trade in goods and services between the United Kingdom and the rest of the EU is so great, and the preparation for documenting the safety and origins of goods and collecting customs on them so scanty, that the
new border would simply freeze up. That would cause great difficulty for many European enterprises, but for Britain it would be a catastrophe. As an example, twofifths of the components for cars built in the UK are sourced from elsewhere in the EU. Yet most of the time available for negotiating a “soft Brexit” has already been wasted and Britain still does not have a realistic negotiating position. This preposterous situation is almost entirely due to the civil war within the Conservative party between the Brexit faction and the rest. The only reason there was a referendum was because former prime minister David Cameron thought a decisive defeat would shut the Brexiteers up and end that war. He miscalculated. The Brexiteers spun a fantasy of an oppressive EU that was the cause of
all of Britain’s troubles and sold it to the nostalgic older generation — the unemployed and underemployed who were looking for somebody to blame — and sundry nationalists of all colours. They narrowly won the referendum with the help of a rabidly nationalist right-wing press, spending well beyond the legal limits in the campaign — and, it now appears, with considerable support from Russia. (The biggest contributor to the Brexit campaign, mega-rich investor Arron Banks, met the Russian ambassador at least 11 times during the run-up to the referendum and the subsequent two months.) There’s still a chance reason will prevail before the UK crashes out of the EU, of course. But the odds are no better than even. gwynnedyer.com

FRIENDSHIPS UNFOLD AT STENBERG 7KHLUSDWKVFURVVHGGXULQJWKHLUÂżUVWFOLQLFDO rotation at Stenbergâ€™s Psychiatric Nursing (RDPN) program when Elisha switched cohorts. â€œI had been through a really rough stretch and Kari-Lynn was my rock. I found her and I cried. I wouldnâ€™t have been able to get through the program without her. We had really similar circumstances and she was always there for me,â€? confessed Elisha. Their friendship grew so strong that not even the $20,000 Student of the Year Award could drive a wedge between them. Kari-Lynn said, â€œI really wanted to jump up and down and be like, â€˜Pick me! Pick me!â€™
Their friendship grew so strong that not even the $20,000 Student of the Year Award could drive a wedge between them. But, Elishaâ€™s one of the big reasons why I feel like I made it through the program. She was there to support me, encourage me, and push
me when I was struggling. So, itâ€™d be really hard for me to say that I deserve it more than her. Sheâ€™d had her struggles and sheâ€™d been through a lot to get through the program as well, so I think she did deserve it. She worked really hard and has been one of my big supports through the program. I couldnâ€™t say â€˜meâ€™ and feel okay with that.â€? They found each other during one of the most intense periods of their lives. RDPN is one of the most demanding programs that Stenberg offers. But they stuck by each other through thick and thin and helped each other succeed. â€œEvery once in a while, Iâ€™d drive down to Kari-Lynnâ€™s place and stay the night. Weâ€™d

Elisha explained. â€œWe were always on the phone with each other when we needed to talk or just cry. For us, it wasnâ€™t about being better than anybody else. It was about understanding that weâ€™re all in the same boat. This was the best message I took from Kari: there was no competition. We were competing against ourselves, and we were there for each other.â€?

different, both women were exposed to traumatic experiences at a young age. Elisha was raised by her grandparents and a single mother who did her best to make ends meet, and experienced an unspeakable tragedy. Kari-Lynnâ€™s parents were foster parents to roughly one hundred kids, so she was surrounded by children with traumatic stories. She teared up as she remembered a little boy who came to live with them when she was eight years old. â€œHis mom physically abused him really bad. Seeing that was a big eye-opener for me.â€? Strong and diligent, both women were somewhat surprised at their
own strength as they endured the program. Now, at 33, both Kari-Lynn and Elisha have a well-paying career that they love, and lots of time to dedicate to their families.

Mothers to two beautiful children each, KariLynn and Elisha have proven to their families and their children that they had the power in them all along. With sheer diligence and resolve, they have changed their lives for the better. â€œI wanted to be a nurse. Iâ€™ve always wanted to be a nurse. I didnâ€™t know what type of nurse I wanted to be, but Iâ€™ve always wanted to help people.â€? Kari-Lynn exclaimed, knowing her dream has come true. â€œI love it! I absolutely love it,â€?

London food safaris: nosh your way through history CHRIS MCBEATH travelwriterstales.com
ove over mushy peas and spam from a can, today’s English cuisine is nothing short of revolutionary. With celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver on the international circuit and national cooking treasures such as Mary Perry and Delia Smith, it’s clear the country’s obsession with the weather has been usurped by its passion for food. Nowhere is this better experienced than on a London eating tour. With the city’s embedded history and dynamic multicultural heritage, grazing one’s way through London’s back streets and markets is so much more than a culinary safari. First up is to travel the world of flavours around Soho, stopping for hand-crafted brews and cocktails along the way. This tour is a perfect adjunct to shopping along Regent Street, but not one that’ll finish in time for a West End show. There’s also a terrific option around Southwark and Borough Market, where the aforementioned Jamie and co. pick up produce. It’s a perfect pairing with a visit to The Shard, Tower Bridge or the Tower of London. Then there are tours of London’s East End, where the former rough and tumble, down-trodden cockney neighbourhoods of Whitechapel, Bethnal Green and Shoreditch have re-invented themselves. Today, street art is plentiful and uber hip. History oozes from the streetscapes (this was Jack the Ripper territory) and the food is fantastic. You’ll probably start your foodtrek at St. John Restaurant with what The Guardian newspaper voted as the Best Breakfast in the
LONDON EATING TOUR AND CHRIS MCBEATH PHOTOS Clockwise from top: Local brews are plentiful at The Pride of Spitalfields — once the site of the largest medieval hospital in England. The ever famous Poppies Fish & Chips is a must-have taste experience. With upwards of 60 curryhouses along “the curry mile,” spicy is the real-meal deal, especially the Chicken Tikka Massala, Britain’s No. 1 Indian food.
World: the bacon sarnie, a.k.a. sandwich. St. John’s raison d’etre is noseto-tail eating, so menu choices include dishes such as whole braised duck or trotters with rarebit mashed potatoes. Then it’s off to sit on an old church pew in The English Restaurant, a restored 17th-century mansion in the heart of Spitalfields. It’s hard to believe the scrumptious bread and butter pudding, made with brioche and topped
with real custard, actually dates to the 13th century, when the poorer classes made it using stale bread, leftovers and as many currants as the makers could afford. You’ll barely have licked the spoon clean before you are ambling off the calories to load up on more at Poppies. The 50’s-style diner — serving classic fish and chips in newspaper — is consistently ranked the top chippy in London, although Fish Market in Borough Market is arguably its
equal. Take that tour and vote for yourself. Poppies is a 15-minute walk from Columbia Road flower market, a little-known Sunday morning treat for the senses. Every tour includes a stop for a local ale or cider. The Pride of Spitalfields is a little gem and exudes the same authenticity as the rest of its neighborhood. Once Roman burial grounds, Spitalfields of yesteryear has also been the site of the largest medi-

eval hospital in England, its fields were the artillery playgrounds of King Henry VIII (Gun Street tells the tale) and, covering such a large area, it was a useful reference point for the Luftwaffe during the London Blitz. On the tour, you’ll walk through the early Jewish quarter and past its landmark old Soup Kitchen. The poorest of poor would bring their own bowls for a ladle of stew and a piece of bread. Children got more, so were often “borrowed” to secure an extra portion. Make sure Beigel Bake is on your tour. Expect melt-in-yourmouth salt beef bagels and long, shuffling lineups 24/7. Look, too, for the Georgian and Dickensian buildings. In the 1700s they housed Hugeonot silk weavers and the most concentrated Frenchspeaking settlement in England. The Irish came in the 1800s to escape the potato famine and, in the Victorian era, several houses were charitable homes for the destitute. One of the most intriguing is at Wilkes and Princelet streets. The building has been preserved in its original condition for use by the film industry for many a period drama. The tasting finale of every East End tour is Banglatown and more specifically Brick Lane and the heart of the East Asian community. With upwards of 60 curry houses along ‘the curry mile’, spicy is the real-meal-deal worthy of a return visit. Did you know that chicken tikka massala, Britain’s No. 1 Indian food, was invented in Scotland? Whether a Londoner or visitor, London Eating Tours do more that whet your appetite. They’re a cultural scramble of history and flavours and a six- to eight-course experience for less than a price of a slap-up dinner. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper syndicate.

Past curators return to help gallery mark 40 years DALE BASS STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
ust like most celebrations, there will be a homecoming as the Kamloops Art Gallery prepares to mark its 40th birthday. Among those who have come back for the event are many former curators, each of whom has picked some of the more than 3,000 works in the gallery’s permanent collection for Through the Memory Atlas: 40 Years of Collecting. Among those who said yes when the request came out from the gallery are Roger Boulet, Jen Budney, Susan Edelstein, Adrienne Fast, Andrew Hunter, Jordan Strom and Tania Willard. Current curator Charo Neville also chose works from those created by former curator Annette Hurtig, who died in 2012, and former executive director Jann Bailey, who died in 2015. Executive director Margaret Chrumka said one of the most gratifying moments in the conversations with the former employees is the role the gallery played in their lives. “Our gallery was pivotal in their careers,” she said, a result of their work, the mentoring they received and the reputation the city’s gallery has. It’s not uncommon for another art gallery to contact them at the KAG looking for advice. “They ask ‘How did you do this?’ on programs like Baby and Me, Ladies Drawing Nights, Drink and Draw.” The show opens on Saturday, July 14, with a curator’s tour at 5:30 p.m. — and it will be a show for the ages. Chrumka said usual exhibitions in the main gallery include between 60 and 100 works. For the anniversary, there will be almost 300 on display. It continues to Sept. 15. Voice is a key element in the selections, she said, and that’s why the group of curators were asked

to take part. Each will bring their own attitudes and inspirations to the works they choose, highlighting works in the collection they want included in the celebration. Chrumka acknowledged there can be a sense of elitism connected with art galleries, something that may have been a holdover from the 1970s and 1980s, when the prevailing belief was galleries had to be quiet places where people would silently contemplate the works. That’s still important, Chrumka said, but not an overriding belief.
“We have to try and strike a balance and not create a place where community doesn’t feel this isn’t their place. This has to be a community place.” The expansion of the building on Victoria Street, which also houses a library branch and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District administration, will help grow the community sense, Chrumka said, particularly with the addition of a cafe. There will also be more gallery space, she said, with the potential to add another up to 200

works in major exhibitions. There are other aspects of the celebration. In the gallery are limited-edition anniversary pins for sale for $10. There are commemorative mugs and greeting cards as well. Emily Hope, the gallery’s education and public programs coordinator, has also created a scavenger map showing the location of public art in the city. People will be encouraged to take selfie photos at each site and the first 25 who make it to every location and do so will receive a prize.
Luminosity returns in midOctober and the gallery has commissioned some area artists to create some new art to be shown during the week devoted to it. Chrumka said a mailing to members and donors has elicited some touching moments. While there were the large donations that come in regularly, there were unexpected ones, perhaps $50, maybe $100, “that are reminders of how deeply and profoundly we are connecting with out community.”

alling themselves Joshua Tree would have been pretty weird, Joel Ellsay said with a laugh. Instead, he, brother Nick and friend Liam Rhynold opted to go with a riff off another album recorded by one of their favourite
musical acts — and Octobers was born, harking back to the second release from Irish band U2. Now, with new drummer Hayden Shea, the band has ended a self-imposed hiatus brought last year when “things like life, work, a new baby, moving city” got in the way, Ellsay said, and the four of them are preparing for their first appearance at The Blue Grotto
BRIEFS Canadian band duo headed to Sun Peaks festival in August
Dan Mangan and Bedouin Soundclash are headed to Sun Peaks for its Music in the Mountains event on Aug. 25 and Aug. 26. Mangan, a two-time Juno Award winner, will be on stage the first night at 6 p.m. and Bedouin Soundclash wraps up the event on the second day at 1 p.m. Music in the Mountains is part of several concerts Sun Peaks has planned. It already marked Canada Day with Big Sugar and, on July 20 to July 22, it will host its Summer Patio Party with musical acts. From Aug. 10 to Aug. 12, it will again bring tribute bands to the mountain for a series of concerts. For more information, go online to sunpeaksresort.com.
Turtle race returns in September
The 17th annual VW Turtle River Race has begun with the horde of reptiles set to hit the water on Sept. 15. The fundraiser benefits Western Canada Theatre again this year, with money raised going to its education programs. Tickets for the turtles are $10 or three for $25. They’re available at Save-On-Foods, 1210 Summit Dr., Andre’s Electronic Experts, 745 Notre Dame Dr., Home Hardware, 1325 Josep Way, Surplus Herby’s, 248 Tranquille Rd., Volkswagen of Kamloops, 2483 East Trans-Canada Highway and
Thursday for a 19-plus show. They will share the bill with Victoria bands Mystery Lover and Groceries. Each describe themselves as indie-rock/folk/alt musicians. Ellsay said they’re excited at the chance to perform at the Grotto, an opportunity that flows from new owner David Johnston’s decision to open the venue on other week-
nights to give local artists or those touring through the area a chance to be heard. This show was put together by JP Lancaster through his Factotum company. Octobers started in 2015, releasing its Misfits EP in August that year, a four-song record of all original works. The show will include those four tracks and more of the

Classic crime comic has stylish brutality “Either I get paid, or Carter is dead.” I thought that was a pretty good introduction to The Hunter. It sums up this book fairly well. Parker has been wronged — he wants what is his and if he doesn’t get it, bodies are going to keep piling up. It’s grim, but effective. The comic is based on one of Richard Stark’s Parker novels, adapted by Darwyn Cooke. Known best for DC — The New Frontier — Cooke’s vintage art style is perfectly suited for this story set in 1962. Using heavy black ink work with a blue watercolour tint, Cooke gives the book a great feeling of dirty, sexy and cool crime. But, you are constantly reminded of one fact: Parker is not a good guy. Hell, he’s not even an anti-hero. It’s hard to feel sympathy for a criminal who is betrayed by other criminals while they are committing a crime, but that certainly isn’t the point of the book. While this world may seem glamorous on the surface, with easy money and easy women,
this book is about the consequences of when criminals turn on each other, particularly when you cross the wrong crook. After pulling a job he should never have taken, Parker is left for dead by the woman he loves and the two-bit bottom feeder who set it all up. That’s a lot of betrayal for one job. Parker doesn’t want justice, he wants revenge. He’s going to kill the man who set him up, and he’s going to keep killing people until they give him his money back. As you could imagine, an organized crime syndicate isn’t
going to give a thug his money back easily, but luckily for Parker, he can be pretty convincing. One of the things I like best about this book is the slightly fragmented way the story is laid out. We are introduced to Parker, we follow him on his path for revenge and then we find out why. Then, as the story is about to reach the peak of suspense from the antagonist’s point of view, it suddenly stops, and then we’re shown how Parker gets there from his point of view. It’s a simple way of telling the story out of sequence, but very effective and never confusing. It isn’t meant to lose the reader, but rather to enrich the story and to build more suspense for that moment. I found myself reading through this book as quickly as I could, and picking up its sequel, The Outfit, immediately after. To say it’s a good crime book is too limiting — it’s just a great book all together. It’s a very classicfeeling crime story with style in spades, but it’s brutal as they come.

AREA BOYS RIDE ON TO U.S. RODEO NATIONALS MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
incoln Yarama has been there before, but the U.S. National High School Rodeo Association Finals have not lost their lustre. “It’s just such a big arena and, with all the flashing lights and all the competition, I’m looking forward to roping down there,” said Yarama, who will begin Grade 12 at Chase secondary in September. Yarama, his mother and grandfather, along with horse Wally, hit the dusty trail on Wednesday. They left the Chase area en route to Rock Springs, Wyoming, where the U.S. finals will be held from Sunday to July 21. The 16-year-old cowboy will compete in two events: Calf roping and team roping. He earned his spot in calf roping by finishing first in that discipline at the B.C. High School Rodeo Finals in Merritt in June, a result that helped him secure the all-around boys’ title. He also qualified for U.S. nationals in steer wrestling, but is opting out of that category. Yarama will partner with Fallyn Mills of Pink Mountain in team roping. Mills has been a dominant force in the female

division in B.C. and ran away with the allaround title at provincials. Team roping is the only event at U.S. nationals in which boys and girls compete together. “You have to be good at roping, have good horsemanship, be really athletic and able to jump off your horse and flank and tie the calf,” Yarama said. “You have to be smooth and consistent and try not to be too fast. You start bobbling if you do that.” More than 1,500 athletes from 43 U.S. states, five Canadian provinces, Australia and Mexico will throw down at what is billed as the largest youth rodeo in the world. Cash prizes and scholarship dollars are up for grabs. “So far, I have already achieved probably $6,000 in scholarships from going to these high school rodeos,” Yarama told Black Press. “That’s the whole point of high school rodeo, is to get scholarships. People want you on their rodeo team for college rodeo, right? I plan on going down south to Wyoming or Oklahoma
or something like that.” The 2018 event will mark Yarama’s sixth U.S. nationals appearance, with the first three being in the junior high division in grades 6, 7 and 8. Owen Perry of Monte Creek and Ryan Roberts of Williams Lake won the B.C. team roping championship to qualify for nationals. Justin Mitchell of Heffley Creek won the bull riding event at provincials and qualified to compete in Wyoming. Valleyview secondary student Carson Payton and his team roping partner Kash Sigouin of Barriere secondary round out the contingent of local cowboys heading to nationals. Reaching U.S. nationals is an accomplishment in itself. Winning or placing is a tall task. “Every state has their top five in every event,” Payton said. “Also, it’s not just the states. Canada and Australia are there and Mexico is new this year. “Texas, they have a huge team and they
are tough. Basically, anyone from down south is tough.” Payton, who will be in Grade 11 when the next school year begins, agreed with Yarama’s assessment of what makes the U.S. nationals so special — the atmosphere. “Just the crowd and roping and the lights and having fun and meeting new people,” said Payton, who had just crossed the border on the 18-hour trek to Rock Springs when he spoke to KTW. “You go down there, you’re on TV … the crowd is outstanding. Your team cheers for you. It’s amazing.” Payton made the trip south with horse T-Bone. Sigouin will ride Roany. They, along with many of their B.C. teammates, will head north after U.S. nationals and make way for the Nicola Valley. Merritt will play host to the Canadian High School Rodeo Finals from July 27 to July 29. “They’re a big deal,” Payton said. “It’s pretty tough because it’s all of Canada.”

Maidment relishing second chance after transplant MARTY HASTINGS
Tony Maidment’s tone changed when talking about December of 2016. After a pause to gather himself, 50-year-old Maidment explained his wife and employer told him enough was enough and he had to stop going to work. “I was missing so much work and getting infections every three months, in hospital for a week at a time,” Maidment said. “I was starting to go downhill.” Maidment was diagnosed in 1997 with a liver disease that attacks the organ’s bile ducts. Bile duct reconstruction surgery in 1998 gave him about nine years of good health, time he used to whip himself into shape. He ran, cycled and swam, entered marathons and sprint triathlons, but his health began to deteriorate in 2007. Maidment had another surgery, but it did not have the same long-lasting effect as the first one. Maidment was placed on the liver transplant list in 2011 after a rigorous assessment and given medication that helped stabilize his condition.
Tony Maidment recovering from one of three surgeries required last May to complete a liver transplant. He recently competed at the Canadian Transplant Games.
After being placed on the inactive transplant list, Maidment decided to test himself and his liver by running eight kilometres at the 2013 Kamloops Marathon. “I found out then that things aren’t that good,” Maidment said. “I stopped training. I was put back on the active list in 2016 in June. “It plays with your mind. The toxins within your body are not being cleaned out. They go right to your brain. We call it liver fog. You’re just not clean inside and it screws up your brain.” Maidment received a call in September of 2016 and was told doctors might have found a liver
match. “I sat there for 12 hours only to have doctors say this liver is not good enough for you,” he said. “By December, my wife and work told me that was it. You can’t work anymore.” He lived in a dark fog until May 1, 2017. “I was doing my thing — nothing — when I got the call,’ Maidment said. He had three surgeries within a week — one for the transplant, one to repair a bleed and one to finish the job. Maidment lost about 25 pounds after going under the knife. “I didn’t have any excess fat on
me because I couldn’t eat,” he said. “Anything I lost was pure muscle. I had a lot of rehab on my own to do and that started the day I was released.” Maidment was forced to move temporarily to the Kootenays last summer, when smoke from wildfires blanketed Kamloops, but rehab eventually continued. “I started walking, running and training inside my house,” Maidment said. “Then I started cycling. “And that’s when I signed up for the Transplant Games.” Earlier this month, 14 months after receiving a liver transplant, Maidment won four medals at the Canadian Transplant Games in Vancouver. He won gold in the 200-metre swim, gold in the five-kilometre run and silver in the 20km bike. His combined time in those three events earned him gold in the virtual triathlon category. “The medals in swimming and running were put on me by organ donor family members,” said Maidment, who was fighting back tears. “It was pretty honouring, to put it mildly.” Maidment, who has 21- and 23-year-old daughters, returned to work as a commercial transport
mechanic at IRL International Truck Centres one year and one week after transplant surgery. “It was incredibly moving to see our donors and donor families alongside of these transplant recipients who are making the most out of their second chance at life,” said Games manager Brenda Brown, a kidney recipient and competitor herself. “We celebrate the gift of life through sport and honour donors who make it all possible.” The youngest athlete was three and eldest was 79 at the Games in Vancouver. Every two weeks, 10 people in Canada will die while waiting for an organ transplant, said a Games press release. Despite overwhelming public support of organ donation, only about 20 per cent of Canadians have registered their intentions to be donors. There are more than 4,000 Canadians on donor waiting lists today. “To have the opportunity to listen to organ donor families is both heartbreaking and an honour,” Maidment said. “To have been given a second chance at life will not be wasted.” Learn more about transplants online at transplant.bc.ca.

Michael LaPierre is going to test his mettle at the 30-and-over World Master International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation Jiu-Jitsu Championships. There is no money up for grabs and a victory in his category will not make him famous, but the trip to Las Vegas next month is a chance to lead by example for his students back home at Valley Jiu-Jitsu. “I have no problem with losing or having someone beat me,” said LaPierre, a 31-year-old brown belt who will compete in the super heavyweight 208- to 222pound division. “It shows me where I stand and where I need to improve.” Entrants do not have to qualify for the event by winning regional competitions, but the lineage of their belts is investigated before they are allowed to sign up. “It’s one of the biggest tournaments the IBJJF puts on,” said LaPierre, who was born and raised in Kamloops. “It’s massive. I’m interested in going because I like to test myself and see where I stand in this sport.” LaPierre bought Valley Jiu-Jitsu last

will run from Aug. 22 to Aug. 25. One loss would mean LaPierre’s competition is over in the blink of an eye, but that wouldn’t bother him much — there are worse places to lick wounds than Las Vegas. “This is where the best in the world compete,” LaPierre said. “It’s the best way to test myself.”

MOSCOW — A billiondollar assembly of stars makes France the favourite for the World Cup final, a scenario Dejan Lovren is pitching as perfect for Croatia’s biggest ever game. “We love to be the underdogs,’’ the Croatian defender said in the wake of a 2-1 extra-time win over England on Wednesday. Kickoff is slated for 8 a.m. on Sunday. With a population of 4.3 million and a history of struggle, it’s easy to see why. Not since Uruguay’s win in 1950 has a country of so few people reached a World Cup final.
Croatia’s players were born around the time an independent Croatia emerged from the wars that divided the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. Lovren and star midfielder Luka Modric were refugees as children. Croatia still struggles economically and its football scene has been riven with hooliganism, crime and politics. It’s a country that breeds toughness in its players. The key to Croatia’s success in Russia, Lovren said, is “Our mentality.’’ “War, all these things and even now the situation is not the best,’’ he said. “It’s unbelievable how many talents we have in sports.’’

Maddie Avery had an inkling Grace Campbell would make a great rugby player. Avery, who had been playing rugby for the NorKam Saints since Grade 8, helped recruit Campbell to the pitch in time for the Grade 10 high school campaign. “She played basketball and volleyball, but I always heard she was aggressive,” Avery said. “She was determined. She had a few fouls here and there. I thought, she’s going to love rugby.” Neither player could have imagined five years later they would be preparing to wear Team B.C. colours at the Canadian Rugby Championships, which run from Monday to July 22 in Saskatoon. Avery and Campbell are expected to be a centre tandem for the under20 B.C. squad at nationals. “When I was younger, I was never good enough in basketball to make Team B.C.,” said Campbell, who will attend the University of Calgary in September and play rugby for the Dinos. “As soon as I found rugby and Team B.C. took an interest in me, I was taken aback. Like, really? I’m good enough for this? That lit a fire under my butt.” The Ontario Blues, Prairie Wolf Pack, Équipe Quebec and Nova Scotia Keltics will provide opposition at nationals. Team Canada brass will make up part of the audience. Avery and Campbell, both 18, have eyes on wearing the Maple Leaf. “This is why this national tournament is so important to me,” said Campbell, who works for the Kamloops Track and Field Club in the summer. “It’s one of the biggest stages for my age group at this level. Canada will be able to see me as a player and see my name.” Avery is entering her second year
of studies at McGill University, where she plays under head coach Magali Harvey, a member of Canada’s national team. “That’s the goal of any player, to make the national team,” said Avery, who works at the Sun Peaks Grand. “You work hard and you hope to get there. It’s my goal to play for Canada in the next three of four years.” Campbell’s rise to the Team B.C. ranks was bolstered when she began playing for the Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders while still in high school. “KRC has been 100 per cent what got me going,” said Campbell, noting Sue Kabotoff and Andy Van Kuyk were among here rugby mentors in high school. “I never even would have dreamed I could be here. After years of being not quite good enough and finally having a taste of where I can push myself and what the rugby community is willing to give, it’s really just made me want to strive for more.” Avery did not play for the Raiders, but was coached by several of them, including Erin Jensen and Carling Ryan, on regional teams. Last year, it was Campbell who encouraged Avery to try out for Team B.C. The game has already taken them overseas. They toured Ireland with the provincial under-18 team last year, a trip that was part of the selection process for U20 nationals. B.C.’s centre partnership is aiming to make the trek to Saskatoon a launching pad to more international competition. “It’s been amazing,” Avery said. “I’ve been super glad to have Grace with me through the whole journey.” HELP HER GET THERE Campbell is asking for financial aid to get to nationals. The trip will cost $2,200. She has raised nearly $1,000. Anyone able to help is asked to email Campbell at email@example.com.

me to state unequivocally I do not agree with the views of the court’s majority. The recluse in me would rather leave things as they are in divine hands and keep praying for a change of heart in the opposing community. For the record, I want to bring up a case of God’s greatness and transcendence in order to forearm the believers of God’s word against the perils of disappointment and the disheartening of soul. This could make our hearts the fruitful ground for the noxious seed the devil
can ever sow there. Recalling the story of three young men — Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego — thrown into a fiery furnace, I would lift up the story from the Old Testament book of Daniel. Challenged not to worship God at all, challenged to bow down to the popular idol, challenged to join the fickle multitude in acclaiming an earthly king to the degradation of the King of their hearts, the three Hebrew children, sizzling with burning love for their Lord, stood their ground and proclaimed defiantly: “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it … But even if He does not, we want you to know, O King, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image
of god you have set up.” “Even if He does not…” Let us not think this was faithlessness on the part of these men. Read their protestant words, sounding perhaps as, “If He does not do just what we thought He was going to do, we still believe, though we have no evidence of sense to support our faith.” This is the faith that accepts God’s will not merely with equanimity but with positive enthusiasm. This is the faith which relates itself not only to the commands of God, but to His contradictions. If we go on with Him, we shall find that pathway to be one of constant contradiction — Christ contradicting our conceptions; Christ contradicting our impulse and our aims; Christ bringing all things within us into conformity with His holy purpose.

The alternative to disappointed faith tests the entire quality of the man or organization (in this case TWU) that professes the faith of God. When God contradicts his expectation and longing, his faith is staggered and even backsliding might begin. I know men for whom disappointment becomes disbelief, who measure God in the tiny scales of their own self-consciousness. Many get utterly disheartened, utterly despondent and could ultimately become deserters. They had never learned to say, “But if not, my God; but if not …” There is a subtle interaction in the life of every one of us of courage and conscience and the man who does not stand firm with and for Him, who loses his integrity, loses also his power of vision because one experience of his faith staggers him. On the other hand, I know men who have learned to say courageously with these three Hebrew children, “But if not … there shall be no deviation from my duty; its dominance shall be entirely unaffected in my life. “But if not — if no ecstatic joy fills me, if no revival fruits appear in my work, I mean to go on and do the next thing. If I do not get the sunshine in all its full-orbed light upon my life, I mean to follow the gleam which I have already seen. “If I cannot see the distant scene, I can see at least one step. God has given me
enough light to walk by, and therefore, if not, I am going on with my work. “If not, there shall be no cessation of hostility to evil, no begging out of the conflict with all the forces of the devil in the world. There shall be no lowering of my aim, even if I am conscious of repeated failure.” Let me point out God’s response to this type of spirit is to do a bigger thing than we trust Him for, not a smaller thing. God did a far bigger thing for the three than they thought He would. He did not deliver them from the peril at all, but He delivered them in it. That is an infinitely greater thing. He did not effect their escape from the furnace, but He gave them an experience of fellowship in the furnace they had never dreamed of, for Jesus himself came to walk with them in that furnace. By the grace of God, forgetting the things that are behind, I pray TWU would press on toward the mark for the prize. Even if the battle seems to be going against them now, may there be no desertion of the colours. ryanmitra225@ gmail.com KTW welcomes submissions to its Faith page.

In loving memory of Katheryn “Kitty” Adams of Kamloops, BC who passed away peacefully at Kamloops Hospice on the morning of Sunday, June 24, 2018 at the age of 70, after battling cancer for a year and a half. Kitty was born in Magrath, Alberta on January 31, 1948. She attended Catholic school and helped take care of her five siblings growing up. Kitty worked in her family‘s restaurant business, where she met the love of her life Ed in 1965. Kitty married Ed on November 12, 1966 in Kamloops, BC and began their life and family together as Kitty worked in sales to help make their dreams reality. Kitty retired early to be able to have more time with her family and to go hunting and fishing with Ed. Kitty is survived by her daughter Cheri-Lee Chicoine, her grandchildren Adaira Chicoine and Tanner (Michaela) Chicoine, her great-granddaughter Lucy Chicoine, her brother Nick (Gabriele) Esser and family, her sister Marilyn (Harold) Oliver and family, her mother Mary Bruce and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Kitty is predeceased by her first-born Sandra, her husband Ed, her father Wayne, her step-father Rod, both sets of grandparents, her in-laws, her brothers Ernie, Frank and John and her three uncles John, Frank and Carl and other family members and friends. Special thanks to Dr. Gabriel and the staff at the cancer clinic, Dr. Stefanyk, the nurses, doctors and the staff at Royal Inland Hospital, the staff at Pratt’s Pharmacy, the Interior Health Home Support Team (Dana),

Kitty said her daughter was her lifeline.

Q. You have a bunch of little urns on display. Why?
When care is pressing down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Kitty will be dearly missed and never forgotten. We love you sooo very much!! - love you more!!
A. Some people want to keep a bit of Murray’s ashes with them (hence the name ‘keepsake urn’) and bury the rest. We charge $69 for most of our little urns. Some people bring a little container from home. We’ll place Murray’s remains in that at no charge.
Success is failure turned inside out –
There will be no formal service as per Kitty’s wishes.
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
Donations may be made in memory of Kitty to Kamloops Hospice, Canadian Cancer Society or the Royal Inland Hospital.

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
Kitty was such an incredibly sweet and unique woman. She enjoyed arts and crafts, getting funky nail designs, tattoos, piercings and had the greatest sense of humour, many will agree.

OTHERS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE By Joanetta Hendel, Indianapolis, Indiana
Others who have gone before Hold up my trembling hand. They comfort me in the blind despair I cannot understand. They suffer with me when I hurt, Weep with me in my pain, Remind me that we are not lost ... Though I must now remain. Those who’ve gone before me, Hear me when I cry. Sing softly with me soothing chords Of unsung lullabies. Mourn anniversaries never marked, A future I cannot keep. They gently kiss the pain away, And love my heart to sleep. The ones who’ve gone before me Hold me in my dreams. They gently stroke my furrowed brow, And calm my silent screams. They love me in my heartache, Wait quietly nearby., Hold patiently, one to another Till I join them by and by.
