All-time heat record could fall Thursday, with Kamloops high forecast to top 40 C The Tournament Capital’s hottest recorded temperature was 41.7 C on July 16, 1941 A HOT ONE

Thursday’s high has the potential to be the hottest ever recorded in Kamloops, according to an Environment Canada meteorologist. Lisa Erven said the Tournament Capital’s forecast will put the alltime mark — 41.7 C, recorded on July 16, 1941 — in jeopardy. “Temperatures should peak on Thursday and we’ve got a daytime high of 40 C in the forecast for Kamloops,” she said. “That daytime high has the potential to set a daily temperature record for Aug. 9, but it will also flirt with the all-time record.” Kamloops’ hottest Aug. 9 was recorded in 1898, when the mercury reached 37.8 C — dead on 100 degrees if going by Fahrenheit. “We’ve got a forecast high of 40 degrees, so we’ll be very close to both those,” Erven said, adding it’s important to take precautions in extreme heat.

“The best things to do are to drink plenty of water, seek cool places like the community swimming pool, seek out airconditioned places like the library or shopping malls, and of course never leave pets or people inside parked vehicles.” Erven also urged Kamloops residents to check on elderly family members, friends and neighbours to make sure precautions are being taken. The heat wave is expected to snap on Friday, when a cooler system is forecast to move across B.C.

IHA to meet with city after mayor says harm reduction ‘is clearly not working’ DALE BASS STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Interior Health Authority representatives are looking forward to meeting with Mayor Ken Christian to talk about drugs. When they sit down, they’ll bring a lot of scientific evidence to the discussion, said IHA medical health officer Dr. Silvina Mema, particularly as it relates to harm reduction. Last month, Christian said the harm-reduction program “is clearly not working,” and recommended a review of the relevant literature and piloting medical models focused on detoxing. Mema said there is plenty of scientific research demonstrating the value of harm reduction but she agrees it’s reasonable to review “what we do and how we do it to show where we are coming from,” she said. She said the mobile drug-consumption sites — Kamloops has one that goes between two locations — have been successful. To date, there have been hundreds of overdoses at those sites in the province but no deaths.

Our Communities Deserve Better An Open Letter from Gateway Casino Workers in the Thompson-Okanagan

Dear Community Members, For over five weeks, almost 700 community members in the Thompson-Okanagan have been on strike. We are Gateway Casino workers fighting for respect and the ability to live in the communities we serve. We are parents, students, long-time employees – we are your neighbours and we’re asking for your help. We don’t have to tell you the cost of living is rising in the Thompson-Okanagan region – you feel it as much as we do. Housing prices and rents are increasing, groceries are more expensive here than in larger urban centres and rising gas prices make life unaffordable for those who need to commute from smaller communities. It’s no surprise that living wages, the base amount it takes to survive in our region, are around $17-18/hour. Knowing this, Gateway Casinos, the largest gaming company in Canada, still refuses to offer decent wages. They use smokescreens and percentages designed to make us look greedy, out-of-touch, and unrealistic. The truth is, we are among the lowest-paid casino workers in Canada. Many of us, even those who have been with the company for over 10 years, still make $12-13/hour. Gateway’s wage offer will not stay ahead of planned minimum wage increases. This is not an “offer,” it is merely compliance with government law. To insist on paying employees the lowest wage legally allowed in BC is heartbreaking; it is a testament to what they believe their employees are worth – what they believe people in our communities are worth. When Gateway says we don’t deserve to be paid as much as casino workers on the coast, what they are really saying is the service they offer you in the Thompson-Okanagan is second-rate. We don’t agree. We love our jobs. We work hard, in high-pressure environments, to offer you a top-notch entertainment experience. The company has been taking aim at our tips. A tip is a reward for good service, it was never designed to be a supplement for poor wages. Gateway Casinos should not download the responsibility of paying a living wage onto our guests. The government does not even consider tips a dependable source of income and they cannot be used towards things like CPP, mortgages, parental leave, EI and so on. Many casino workers don’t receive tips at all. In the last few years, Gateway Casinos has invested nearly half a billion dollars in various development projects – it’s time they invest in their employees. When they pay living wages that allow us to live and shop in our communities, that money stays in the local Thompson-Okanagan economy rather than going to Gateway’s holdings in Metro Vancouver, Alberta and Ontario. We are not on strike to cash in – we are fighting a wealthy employer for the ability to survive. We have families, student loans and the same daily expenses as many of you, and we are struggling to get by. It’s time for Gateway Casinos to stop profiting off our poverty. Please help us in our fight by not crossing our picket lines and by telling Gateway how you feel. Call them, email them, write letters to the editor of our local papers. Visit our website at casinoworkers.ca for more ways to help. So many of you have already come out to show your support and it means everything to us. Let’s show Gateway Casinos that the people of the Thompson-Okanagan are not second-rate – that we deserve better! Sincerely, Workers from Cascades Penticton, Playtime Kelowna Lake City Vernon and Cascades Kamloops UWU/MoveUP

Recall of Saudi students shouldn’t hurt, TRU says of its international students due to Saudi Arabia cutting off relationships with Canada and ordering its students to return home was incorrect. That story was based on out-of-date information on the university’s website, which indicated 256 of its international students come from Saudi Arabia. Last year, there were 23 registered in the first term and 29 in

DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

A diplomatic row between Canada and Saudi Arabia isn’t expected to have much impact on student enrolment at Thompson Rivers University. A story posted online at kamloopsthisweek.com over the weekend that said TRU could lose one-tenth

the second term. Ten were registered for the upcoming term. TRU executive communications manager Darshan Lindsay said the website will be updated this week. Lindsay say the university is meeting with all students to assess their situation and needs. “We anticipate the majority, if not all, that are currently enrolled are impacted by this

decision,” she said. The Saudi recall affects students receiving scholarships from that government. “Our goal is to support them and make their transition home go as smoothly as possible.” The issue that led to this diplomatic impasse involves Saudi police arresting human-rights activist Samar Badawi and others last week. Samar’s brother, Raif Badawi, is a blogger who was arrested in 2012 and sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes for criticizing the Saudi clerics, for which he was convicted of “insulting Islam.” The arrests last week brought criticism from the Canadian government. On Thursday, Aug. 2, Chrystia Freeland,

Canada must lead with values in spat: Morneau OTTAWA — Finance Minister Bill Morneau says Canada will continue to “enunciate’’ what it believes are the appropriate ways of dealing with citizens, despite its ongoing diplomatic tumult with Saudi Arabia. Morneau said Canada has strong trading relationships around the world, and as a result needs to “lead with our values.’’ Saudi Arabia expelled Canada’s ambassador, declared a freeze on new trade and recalled thousands of students attending Canadian universities following a tweet last week from Global Affairs Canada that expressed concerns about the arrest of activists in the kingdom.

Canada’s foreign minister, sent out a tweet regarding human rights in the Middle East kingdom. “Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to

strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.” The official Twitter account of Global Affairs Canada also sent out a tweet, on Friday, Aug. 3: “Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar

Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists.” As a result of the Canadian government tweets, Saudi Arabia expelled Canada’s ambassador to the country, Dennis Horak, and recalled its envoy in Canada. Saudi Arabia also froze all trade with Canada and, according to the Saudi government-owned Al-Arabiya news agency, will transfer all students studying in Canada who are receiving government scholarships to other countries. The TRU spokesperson said it wasn’t clear how many of the Saudi students on campus receive that kind of funding.

Proposed documentary would tell story of Ryan Shtuka, missing since February MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A trio of Kamloops filmmakers hope to shine a light on the disappearance of Ryan Shtuka through a documentary. The 20-year-old from Beaumont, Alta., was last seen on Feb. 17 leaving a house party on Burfield Drive in Sun Peaks at about 2 a.m. to walk a short distance home. A massive search effort from his parents and volunteers followed, but there has been no sign of Shtuka even after the snow melted in the ski resort. With the trail appearing to get colder as the months pass, locals Russell Walton, Jared Featherstone and Allan McVicars have taken it upon themselves to share the story in an effort to contribute to the search. In order to get the documentary made, the filmmakers are hoping for a successful grant through Storyhive, a public access competition from Telus that offers production grants and distribution opportunities to filmmakers in B.C. and Alberta. “We really saw ourselves in Ryan,” said project lead Russell Walton. “From the way we look at it, it could have just as easily been one of us who disappeared because he was living a lifestyle really similar to us when we were 20 years old.” The competition is fierce as more than 280 applicants are vying for 30 grants worth $50,000 in Storyhive’s 20 minute documentary category. Half the grants are awarded to the projects with the most votes and the remaining 15 are chosen by a panel of judges. Voting ended Aug. 2 and the filmmakers will find out in early September if their application will receive funding. “It’s an interesting initiative because you need to be a filmmaker living in either B.C. or Alberta to qualify for the grants, so it’s a pretty cool way

Volunteer searchers operated out of this command centre in Sun Peaks following the disappearance of 20-year-old Ryan Shtuka in the mountain resort community in February. No trace of the Albertan has been found, and now a group of filmmakers are hoping to tell the story in documentary form.

to get Western Canadian content made,” Walton said. The trio were amazed at the positive response they received and thankful that the family is on board with the project, titled Peaks and Valleys: The Search for Ryan Shtuka. In a Facebook post, Ryan’s mother Heather wrote that she is “incredibly grateful that these young filmmakers want to bring wider awareness to Ryan’s case.” Walton said he first heard of Shtuka’s disappearance through family members who had been involved in initial searches. He also helped organize a fundraiser in May. It was at that event that he met Ryan’s parents, who left an impresson on him. “Who they were personally, how they came across and how they were handling everything, that really gripped me and also my other friends,” Walton said. Walton, Featherstone and McVicars have a variety of experience in video production and wanted to find a way to use their

abilities to aid the search when Walton received an email notification about Storyhive’s latest application intake. “We talked about it and were like, yeah, this is something that I think would be of value to the community and it’s a really deep story to tell,” Walton said. After getting approval from the family, they sent in an application in July. The plan for the documentary is to interview Ryan’s parents Heather and Scott Shtuka, Kamloops Search and Rescue team leader Allan Mole and Ryan’s friend James Maxwell. Other interviews are expected to be conducted with those who knew Ryan as well. The documentary will focus on the community search effort that rallied around the family, Ryan himself as a young man venturing out from home for the first time and make an effort to gather new information that may move the investigation forward. “It’s pretty mysterious how the

snow’s melted now and they still can’t find him,” Walton said. Receiving the Storyhive grant would cover the majority of the cost to produce the film, but if the application isn’t successful, Walton said there are other grants the filmmakers can pursue. If successful, the documentary will be available to be viewed by anyone who uses Telus as a cable provider. Ryan arrived in Sun Peaks on Dec. 1 to spend the season snowboarding before returning this spring to his job as an apprentice construction working for his dad. According to Heather Shtuka, Ryan was leaving a party with a couple of his roommates to walk the short distance to his home when he disappeared. “They walked out the door with another friend to walk home and thought Ryan was right behind them,” Heather Shtuka told KTW, adding the friends thought perhaps he had stopped to tie his shoes.

Twenty-eight-year-old Nicholas Adams has lived in North Kamloops for a decade. He’s familiar with issues involving transients and sharps and believes the city’s social problems will be a “hot-button” issue during the fall municipal election, in which he is running for city council. “The city needs to make sure that they’re there to facilitate the non-profits,” he said. Adams is the caretaker of Riverdale Trailer Court on Tranquille Road. He moved to the River City at a young age from Prince George and graduated from Westsyde secondary. Four years ago, he co-founded Kamloops Makerspace on West Victoria Street, a non-profit that provides space and workshops for hobbyists, inventors and artists. It was during that time when he ran into red tape at city hall, prompting him to run in the 2017 byelection to empower city staff. He wants to offer them more flexibility during the decisionmaking process. “When we don’t give our city staff a certain amount of flexibility, they go, ‘Here’s the rule’,” he said. “Kamloops has a reputation for being a ‘No’ city.” He has helped the Overlanders Lions Club with pancake breakfasts and is a member of the Kamloops Heritage Railway Society and Kamloops Daybreak Rotary. He also helped start the Kamloops

SEAN BRADY/KTW Smoke had rolled back into Kamloops-area skies by Tuesday morning, but an Environment Canada meteorologist says it could be gone by Friday.

Smoky skies likely to stay for now TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The smoke has returned, and Kamloops-area skies aren’t likely to become much clearer until Friday at the earliest. Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa Erven told KTW the problem is impacting most of the Southern Interior. “The smoke has really taken over the Interior of B.C.,

not just the Kamloops area,” she said, noting weather conditions are keeping smoke trapped close to the ground. “We’ve got this ridge of high pressure that’s built in over the province. It acts as a cap or a lid trapping wildfire smoke near the surface of the Earth. “Basically, instead of the smoke continuing to rise up and be dispersed in the upper levels of the atmosphere, it 35

change, you typically get some strong winds, a chance of showers and the chance of thundershowers,” she said. “Once that front passes through, we’ll be into a cooler air mass.” Erven said the shift in conditions is not a guarantee smoke will disappear. “There are so many fires burning in B.C.,” she said. “It’s hard to forecast how smoke activity will change.”

VANDALISM SHOWS NEED FOR INCLUSION

S

almon Arm’s rainbow crosswalk appears to be bringing out the worst in the community. What was meant to be a symbol of inclusion, a public display of tolerance and caring for individuals who, in many cases, have struggled with issues of identity and discrimination, has become a lightning rod for oppos-

ing views. This has been demonstrated through acts of vandalism and comments on social media ranging from dismissive to outright disgusting. Most abhorrent was the graffiti scrawled over the three week-old rainbow crosswalk last week, words that have police calling the act a hate crime. It’s rather telling that the words used in this hate crime borrow from an insular slogan made popular again by the current U.S. president. Unfortunately, these public displays of intolerance were predictable. In most cases where communities across B.C. have proceeded to paint a rainbow crosswalk, there has been controversy and division. And, subsequent to its painting, there has been vandalism. Courtenay’s rainbow crosswalk was vandalized one day after it was installed with burnout marks. The day after New Westminster’s rainbow crosswalk was unveiled, a 91-year-old man poured white paint on it. Fort Langley’s was quickly blemished with burnouts. In Nanaimo, a biblical verse was reportedly painted over one of their rainbow crosswalks. Smithers — burnouts again. And so on. Precedent, however, is no excuse for continuity. Flying a flag honouring First Nations territory or painting a rainbow crosswalk are more than political gestures. They symbolize an openness to learning and understanding more about the world and the people who share it — things that should benefit us all.

Wards could offer city fix

I

had a chat with a city councillor recently. I asked what we have to do out in my Dallas neighbourhood to get sidewalks for kids to use when they walk to the local elementary school. The answer was blunt: It will never happen. OK. Being not just mom but reporter, I inquired why something that seems so darn basic to me “will never happen.” Apparently the need we see out in Dallas — and I’m sure others have seen it in their own neighbourhoods since our school isn’t unique in its nonsidewalkness — isn’t a big priority at City Hall. Instead, our kids will continue to use what one neighbour has called our virtual sidewalk, a line running along the north side of Dallas Drive with a figure painted every so often of a child. For those of us who see the need for sidewalks a safety issue, looking at a white outline of a child lying on the road is an irony I suspect is lost on those who make the decisions at city hall. I asked another councillor in recent days why the businesses in the Tranquille Market can’t shut down part of their roadway like the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association does every year to hold a festival or a big pedestrian-friendly sidewalk marketplace — to put up some tents with microphones and speakers and promote local musicians on that side of the river, as well. The answer was just as blunt as the one on sidewalks: Can’t do it. OK. But why?

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL It would interfere with the bus system, I was told. Three routes use Tranquille Road — and the North Shore bus exchange is located just off that road by the Northills Mall, so I can see some of the concern city council might have — but what about allowing even a one-day closedown and rerouting those buses onto Fortune Drive instead. Or take a look at any other potential temporary detour. It’s what would happen should Tranquille need a major reconstruction, so why not try to accommodate it for a one-off? Just an idea. All of this leads into my regular pre-election column advocating a ward system for Kamloops. If we had councillors whose main constituency was their community — and we would use a broad description of that word, perhaps creating a Valleyview/ Barnhartvale/Dallas/Campbell Creek ward, for example — we might be able to elect cheerleaders for our many neighbourhoods. We could have councillors

who know where every pothole is on Todd Road or how crazy traffic can be at times on Westsyde Road. That part of the city might have seen more advocacy to reopen its long-shuttered pool when the city finally realized the building was old, falling apart and in need of renovation. There would have been a councillor who could have been the voice for Brocklehurst when council mused about shuttering its community pool, too. This city is growing. In a few years, the population is expected to move into six figures. So I’m going to repeat what I wrote before the 2016 election because it still holds true. There’s a reason why all the attention seems to go to the two retail districts in the city — Tranquille Market and the downtown core. Nobody is speaking up for the rest of the city. Live in those areas and you get the great bus service. Businesses are encouraged to move there. Builders are urged to follow the city’s in-filling mantra. The rest of us can live with the lousy service, with foreverfor-sale retail, industrial and commercial sites and with pools that are left to deteriorate until they reach a point where, well, of course we need to shut them down. We can live with no sidewalks and, for those in Barnhartvale and parts of the North Shore, no curbs, either. We can live with having two classes of citizens because there’s no one with any clout saying it’s wrong.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

GO SLOW WITH SECONDARY SUITE EXPANSION Editor: There are many issues to consider with secondary suites. Off-street parking is important as the neighbourhood would have zero control over on-street parking. Nor would the neighbourhood have control over who would be invited in, especially if the upper and lower portions of the home are rented, leaving the neighbourhood with people who have little interest in maintaining value and integrity with property values or peace in the area. For most of us who have

worked hard and built up equity over many years, we do not want to have that compromised with soft hearts. Take a drive to Surrey and see what has happened to neighbourhood properties with secondary suites. Many people cannot park in front of their own homes and must park some distance to access their property. In Kamloops, the same situation is visible and many friends complain that since occupiers of suites park on the street, they are often unable to directly access their property. And the mass

parking lot on the street certainly affects property values. These friends tell me those suites are not legal. Once you have a bylaw allowing for secondary suites in all single-family homes, you will not be able to take it back. There must be a better solution and the city should come up with better options. Being a homeowner renting out anything is not fun. The pitfalls are many and, many times, the income just isn’t worth the headache. We already have many second-

ary suites that are illegal, that do not meet municipal building codes and that do not have proper assessments, thus many that do not pay proper municipal property taxes and utility fees. If we go for secondary suites without adequate legislation to meet various municipal codes, adequate engineering approvals and business licensing, the city will resemble a mass mosaic of degraded, cluttered neighbourhoods. Dennis Paget Kamloops

BRING BACK FREE HOUSEHOLD ITEM PICKUP DAY STONE’S CONCERNS Editor: Illegal dumping of furniture and large appliances is hard to control. I lived in Parksville on Vancouver Island for 15 years and that community had a great program to combat illegal dumping. Once a year, the city would have a free pickup of all those household items

some people don’t have a way of getting to the landfill. This seemed to stop a lot of illegal dumping and problems related to these eyesores within city limits. It is probably relatively inexpensive versus picking it up throughout the year. Ron Engen Kamloops

SECONDARY SUITES MEAN PARKING PROBLEMS Editor: Count me as one who is strongly against secondary suites. Having just moved to Kamloops from Victoria, I have seen streets clogged with parked cars to accommodate extra residents. In the winter, our street was pretty much a lane-and-a-half on a good day. I can’t imagine

what it would be like with less plowing area. In addition, rules generally state you must have a parking spot for your tenant. That just means the owner parks on the street to get around the rule. It remains an eyesore with cars. Randy Anderson Kamloops

RING HOLLOW IN SD73 FUNDING COMPLAINTS Editor: Local MLAs Todd Stone and Peter Milobar tweet out a video complaining about the lack of funding to SD73 for their capital projects. This comes after 16 years of budget cuts, service cuts and teacher attacks all culminated by the Supreme Court loss paid for by B.C. taxpayers. Locally, Kamloops received, for the first

time in 17 years, funding to expand a school. This is what SD73 board chair Meghan Wade had to say about that, “In 17 years of capital plans, we’ve never been asked for this before.” I wish Stone had this level of concern toward SD73 and the B.C. public school system when his party was in power.

Charges laid in connection to standoff at restaurant

Justin Braden Hodge charged after alleged incident at Denny’s MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops man who allegedly barricaded himself inside Denny’s restaurant for 10 hours last week during a standoff with police is now facing multiple charges. Justin Braden Hodge is facing charges of uttering threats, robbery, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes, mischief and breach of probation according to online court documents. He is expected to appear in Kamloops provincial court on Monday for a bail hearing. The Aug. 2 standoff began at about 4 a.m. when a customer allegedly threatened staff after receiving his bill. He is alleged to have told them he had a bomb and would blow up the restaurant. According to police, employees and other customers all left the building, leaving the man alone in the restaurant at Columbia Street and Sixth Avenue. The suspect allegedly closed all the blinds on the windows, and at one point is said to have and exited one of the restaurants doors brandishing a knife only to re-enter the restaurant when confronted by police. Dozens of police officers could be seen surrounding Denny’s at about 8:30 a.m. and police closed down Columbia

KTW FILE PHOTO Charges have been laid in connection to a standoff that snarled traffic in the downtown core on Aug. 2.

Street between Fifth and Seventh avenues. By noon, a police negotiator began attempting to contact the suspect as RCMP emergency response team members removed the back door and broke a window near the front entrance. An officer on a loudspeaker could be heard telling the suspect to exit the back door with nothing in his hands and that police were not going to hurt him.

At about 1: 30 p.m., with no compliance from the suspect, police threw multiple rounds of tear gas into the building. The suspect remained in the restaurant. By about 2:45 p.m., police entered through the back door and apprehended the suspect without incident. He appeared to be naked as he was being led out the back door and into a police vehicle. Police then swept the Denny’s for explosive devices.

Smokers can feel a little better about taking a drag downtown as a program that recycles cigarette butts into industrial products expands. The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (KCBIA) is behind the installation of an additional 10 cigarette butt receptacles on poles in the city’s core, doubling the 10 that were set up in the area last summer. “It’s a good program,” Customer Care and Patrol Team (CAP) supervisor Alix Proulx said. The initiative curbs litter and prevents fires that can result from smokers tossing a lit butt into a trash can. Proulx said the KCBIA pinpointed areas of complaint, including in front of the Central Station Pub, CJs Nightclub and Carlos O’Bryans.

Last year, 21 pounds of cigarette butts were collected in the 10 receptacles for half of the summer. “It was shocking to us just how much waste that was,” Proulx said. The City of Kamloops pitched in $2,000 for the receptacles, paid for through its waste-diversion program. “It seemed like a great idea,” City of Kamloops environmental services manager Glen Farrow said. Farrow said smokers often don’t know where to put their cigarette butts. People in the past have snuffed them out on garbage cans, leaving ash everywhere. He said the city would be open to adding receptacles north of the river if the initiative was to be spearheaded by the North Shore Business Improvement Association. Proulx called the program

a win-win because TerraCycle — the same company that accepts for free those hardto-recycle baby food pouches — pays to ship the butts to its facility in eastern Canada, where it grinds down the butts before the plastic is sold to manufacturers to build palettes, plastic lumber and other low-grade industrial products. While many smokers toss butts on the ground, plastic filters are not biodegradable. “That’s the biggest misconception,” TerraCycle Canada director of operations Lenny Wang said. Packaging, however, must be recycled through the city’s regular recycling program. TerraCycle also donates back to the CAP program $1 for every pound of cigarette butts collected. Look for signs downtown that say “Butt out here.” “We’re trying to raise the awareness of them,” Proulx said.

Nothing suspicious about body found alongside Coq’, police say MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Police have determined the death of a 27-year-old Indigenous woman found in a ditch off the Coquihalla Highway south of Merritt last month is not suspicious. In a press release, Merritt RCMP Staff Sgt. Lorne Wood added “no criminality is suspected.” Brittany Martel from Hay River, N.W.T., was found dead in a ditch off the busy B.C. highway near the Mine Creek Road exit on July 22 when a motorist came across her body while out for a walk as traffic stopped due to an unrelated accident. The investigation has been turned over to the BC Coroners Service. “The autopsy didn’t show any obvious cause of death at this point, so the pathologist is still looking into it,” said Merritt RCMP Cpl. Derrick Francis. “We don’t know for sure what caused her death.” While police still have questions regarding how Martel ended up in the ditch, the death isn’t considered criminal in nature because there was nothing in the autopsy indicating any harm had come to her, Francis told KTW. Francis said the results of a toxicology tests still need to be

He confirmed Martel’s body did not appear to have sustained any blunt force trauma. “There’s a number of things that can kill people. One is harm comes to them or trauma, exposure to the elements, a drug overdose and [in this case] we just don’t know yet,” Francis said. On Wednesday, a group of about 35 people gathered outside the Merritt RCMP detachment to hold a peaceful vigil for Martel and help raise funds to cover funeral costs. Billie Jean Gabriel, an organizer of the vigil, wrote on Facebook that while she did not know Martel, the “pain of what happened is enough for all of us to stand with the fam-

ily.” She described the findings by the RCMP as “deeper than insult and injury” and asked people join the rally to demand justice for Brittany. Family members said the police informed them Martel had no shoes on and no cellphone when she was found. According to reports from APTN News, Martel was known to hitchhike, travelling in B.C., Alberta and the N.W.T. The news organization was in contact with her in mid-July requesting an interview with her about her experience on the road and her Facebook posts indicated she was travelling as of July 15. Her last post was made July 16 — six days before she was found dead. APTN spoke with Martel’s aunts — Dolly Martel and Diane Fabian — who said they

received phone calls from women who had been driving with her through B.C. Fabian said that on July 24 a woman called her to say she received a call from Martel asking her why she had been left in B.C., but when Fabian asked her when she last spoke with Martel, the woman hung up on her. The woman who phoned Dolly Martel is said to have told her that when she woke up from a nap on the side of the road Brittany was gone. She drove up and down the highway looking for her, but left when she saw no sign of her. Both aunts told APTN they hope the RCMP will interview these two woman as well as Martel’s boyfriend, who she was known to hitchhike with frequently. A GoFundMe page has been set up for Martel and has so far raised $3,000 of its $5,000 goal.

The agency has one of five Fourier transform infrared spectrometers (FTIR), machines that can identify substances in drugs, “and we need to promote this service,” executive director Bob Hughes said. “Enforcement is not working.” Plans are to use online social media to arrange meetings in private, safe places, for people to have their drugs tested, he said. The decision comes after ASK staff started to realize they were seeing people “from a different socio-economic” community coming to them on Thursday and Friday nights asking for a naloxone kit and the training required to use it. Naloxone is used in harmreduction to temporarily stop an opioid overdose, usually in enough time for first responders to arrive and start medical care. “These are people who are

using cocaine, MDMA (Methyl enedioxy methamphetamine, also known as Molly or Ecstasy). That’s who we have to connect with.” The agency is sending the FTIR to the Shambala Music Festival to be used there when its annual series of concerts starts on Friday. ASK employee Kira Haug will be on site with it, Hughes said. Shambala has been doing drug testing for years. Last year, Interior Health medical health officer Dr. Silvina Mema and Ankors, the company that makes the equipment, found fentanyl in more than two dozen drugs of the 2,724 drugs tested at the site near Salmo. The year before, nine were found. That’s not the only toxic substance being identified through the machine, Hughes said. He cited an instance before ASK obtained an FTIR when another organization did a drug test for a man and identified paraben, another harmful drug. Hughes said the man came back after getting the results and

asked to safely dispose of the drugs. He had brought them to the event to sell “but he said he just wanted to get rid of it.” Dr. Ken Tupper of the B.C. Centre on Substance Use is one of four researchers who have recently published results of a pilot project to detect fentanyl in drugs in downtown Vancouver. Drug-checking methods were implemented at two locations in Vancouver between November 2017 and April 2018. The study tested 1,714 samples and only 19 per cent had the expected drug in any amount. Eighty-eight per cent tested positive for fentanyl. There were 822 drug samples purported to be heroin also tested but only 13 per cent contained that drug. A majority of the drugs that were believed to be a stimulant like methamphetamine had the expected drug in any amount; only five per cent showed fentanyl in the test results. Those FTIR tests done in the pilot project also found other unexpected and potentially dangerous substances in many of the drugs tested.

‘How to provide the services needed’ From A1

Mema said she believes the mayor and medical staff at the health authority “have common ground. We agree in principle we don’t want people to suffer because of the drugs they use. We don’t want them to get hepa-

titis C or HIV or an overdose,” she said. “The question is how to provide the services needed.” One new aspect being promoted as part of harm reduction is paying people to return used syringes. In Kamloops, two people

are paying a nickel for each needle returned. Mema said she stands by her earlier comments the program is concerning for several reasons including the potential for accidental needle pokes, and the reality putting a monetary value on a used needle could lead to syringe theft.

NATIONAL NEWS

Nova Scotia breaking federal rules on cannabis marketing, critic says ALY THOMSON

CANADIAN PRESS

HALIFAX — Nova Scotia’s cannabis retailer is being accused of violating federal regulations by “glamourizing and normalizing’’ marijuana, but the Crown corporation says it is simply educating consumers. The Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation recently unveiled the design of its cannabis stores, which divides products into four distinct categories: relax, unwind, centre and enhance. There will also be tablets at tabletops allowing customers to browse products and “discover your experience’’ once the stores open in October. Dr. Simon Sherry, a psychologist and professor at Dalhousie University, issued a news release Tuesday saying the signage promotes cannabis in a way that’s attractive and appealing, contrary to the Cannabis Act’s section on promotion. “There’s a danger in all this. What our government and the NSLC are doing is that they are glamourizing and normalizing cannabis use,’’ Sherry, who has written a letter to Health Canada Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor outlining his concerns, said in an interview. “They’re making it appealing, and they’re making it attractive, and when cannabis gets glamourized and normalized, more and more people start to use it, so more and more Nova Scotians are going to be encountering the risks and the harms associated with cannabis use.’’ Sherry points to NSLC signage that promote various cannabis strains as “soothing,’’ “relaxing and calming’’ or offering “livelier experiences’’ that “invigorate the senses.’’ The Cannabis Act prohibits promotion in a manner that “evokes a positive or negative emotion about or image of, a way of life such as one that includes glamour, recreation, excitement, vitality, risk or daring.’’ David DiPersio, senior vice-president

and chief services officer for the NSLC, said the product classifications were developed to educate consumers about how different strains of cannabis affect the mind and body. “What we are doing here, in a very subtle way, is educating our consumers to the fact that this particular strain would create a different type of experience than another strain,’’ said DiPersio. “It’s a platform to educate our consumers. It’s also a platform to educate our stores so that they have a program upon which they can use to actually educate consumers if they’re asking questions.’’ He added: “We feel it would have been a disservice and frankly a bit dangerous to our consumers if we weren’t able to actually explain what experience could result from the usage of a particular strain of cannabis.’’ DiPersio said federal regulations were top of mind as the corporation designed the program, and it has ongoing calls with Health Canada through the provincial government. No concerns about the signage have been raised thus far, he said. “We firmly believe that the model Nova Scotia has in place to retail cannabis on Oct. 17 achieves the goal of legalizing cannabis in the most responsible manner,’’ provincial government spokesman Andrew Preeper said in an emailed statement. Sherry said the NSLC’s messages appeal directly to addiction-prone people. He noted there are two key “motives’’ for using a substance like cannabis: enhancing experience and trying to relieve stress or anxiety. “We know that individuals who have these tension-reduction motives and have these enhancement motives are especially likely to escalate to problematic use of a range of drugs including cannabis,’’ he said. “And so these ads are directly appealing

to the motives for why people are likely to use and abuse cannabis ... Whether it was intentional or not, this seems like a targeted message towards addictionprone individuals.’’ He added that he supports the legalization of cannabis, but wants it done in a “cautious, thoughtful, and evidence-based way.’’ He said cannabis use should be a personal choice based on accurate information.

Sherry has previously also raised concerns about the stores being located inside existing liquor stores, saying it poses a public health risk. Trina Fraser, an Ottawa-based lawyer who advises the cannabis industry, said Tuesday the situation is complicated without clear direction from Health Canada. “I don’t agree that we’re going to further advance the overall

objectives of legalization by shoving exaggerated, dire warnings in people’s faces every time and at every juncture where they could possibly be considering buying cannabis,’’ she said. “If we make it that unpleasant of an experience, we’re never going to convince consumers to buy their cannabis at a legal source instead of an illegal source.’’ On the other hand,

Fraser said the Act allows people to promote cannabis using brand preference and “informational promotion,’’ but only if the seller meets certain criteria, including selling from a place prohibiting minors. In other provinces, where there are designated cannabis stores, sellers would fall into that category. But with Nova Scotia, minors can enter the NSLC with their parents, so it

becomes more complicated, Fraser said. She added that “informational promotion’’ is a vague term. While NSLC’s signage could be construed as informational, she said cannabis affects different people in different ways and someone might not necessarily feel “relaxed’’ or “enhanced’’ after using cannabis. Health Canada did not immediately offer a comment Tuesday.

Project truck a family affair MAN WITH LUNG DISEASE DRIVING HOME CANCER AWARENESS WITH PINK TRUCK MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Dave Miller’s pink flat-deck truck surely turns a few heads when it is driven down the street, making it the perfect vehicle to get his message across. The 47-year-old took the shock of a lung disease diagnosis and turned it into a way to spend more time with his family and raise awareness when he and his stepsons rebuilt his customized family truck. Miller has worked in the auto industry his entire life, doing everything from body work to mechanical work and the truck has been rebuilt twice. “It used to be my old Chevy Blazer and then we bought a pickup body and we stripped both trucks down and merged them together,” Miller said. The truck was given new purpose as a vehicle for cancer awareness this spring when Miller’s family rebuilt it a second time after he received devastating news last fall he had pulmonary fibrosis, a chronic and progressive lung disease where the air sac in the lungs becomes scarred and stiff, making it difficult to breathe and get enough oxygen into the bloodstream. It can lead to increased lung cancer risk. “I actually had a heart attack in October and that’s when we found out about the prognosis,” Miller said. He said he felt shell-shocked, overwhelmed and scared when he heard the news. It wasn’t until Christmas and the comfort of being with family during the holiday season that the shock finally wore off and

Miller realized he needed to do something with his loved ones to preserve that feeling. He also wanted to spread the knowledge there are people who struggle with life-altering diseases every day. In January, Miller and his two stepsons stripped the truck down and built it back up over the course of three months, converting it to a flat deck and painting it pink to raise awareness of cancer — a disease Miller is all too familiar with, having lost an aunt and uncle to the same disease he has and his mother to Hodgkin’s disease. “It was a very hard build because it was so much heart and soul behind it,” Miller said, noting the truck was dedicated to his mom this past Mother’s Day. He and his wife have eight kids between them marriages and everyone has put in their fair share of elbow grease over the years. But Miller’s two stepsons — Jayden, 18, and Austin,16, who have autism — completed the majority of the work. Neither one had touched a wrench a day in their life and hadn’t worked together as a team until this project. Each day, Miller would write a to-do list and they would check it off one by one as they worked together. “People that say autistic kids can’t achieve their goals. They’re full of crap because the goal is sitting out in the driveway,” Miller said. Miller can’t work given his condition and lives on disability as the family copes with the ordeal. Doctors have told him there’s not much they can do, so

he tries to just take life one day at a time. “It’s been a long haul,” he said. On the good days, he gets things done, noting the truck, which has been up and running for about a month, was on display at the Kamloops Street Rod Association’s Chrome on the

Grass car show in July and will be at the Hot Nite in the City car show downtown this weekend. “It’s pretty cool to see that it’s still alive and kicking going around town,” Miller said. He’s also been collecting signatures of musicians, so far securing those of Me and Mae,

Gord Bamford, Jason Benoit and Ben Klick. “I’m trying to get as many musicians to sign it as part of the awareness,” Miller said. “They’re jumping at the chance.” Miller said he likes the idea of possibly auctioning off the truck to raise money for cancer awareness.

NOTICE TO MOTORISTS HALSTON AVE RESURFACING PROJECT

July 25 through September 2018

The City of Kamloops has contracted BA Dawson Blacktop to resurface Halston Avenue from Ollek Street to Kingston Avenue. The majority of the work will take place during the day from Monday to Saturday, with the possibility of some additional weekend and night work as required. Anticipated hours of work will be from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Take the first step in getting well Question from a KTW reader: How did you get help with your addiction? What resources are available in Kamloops for people experiencing an addiction that are free or low cost? Have you used while working as an academic? Asking for help is a tremendous first step. For me, I didn’t know I had a problem until I tried to stop. I did not know addiction was a chronic, relapsing, remitting disease. I also mistakenly believed just stopping was the only thing I needed to do. How incredibly wrong that thinking was. Recovery is more than just not using. My whole life needed to change. I had to challenge and become aware of my thinking. I thought about my thoughts. This can sound overwhelming, so I suggest doing only what is in front of you right now. Recovery is possible. It is amazing and you will be blown away by what can happen for you. Take baby steps, one action, one thought, one day at a time. Stopping is a major first step. Too many live in denial. I thought I could do it alone and, even worse, believed I didn’t have a problem. In active addiction, I often blamed others — you, the world, my upbringing or parents. You name it, I blame it. Even when not using, if I find myself in resentment, anger, self pity or remorse, I know my addiction is talking to me. Addiction is cunning, baffling and powerful. It outsmarts the smartest. It lies and deceives. Addiction changes neurochem-

Welcome to Ask an Addict, a column penned by a Kamloops scholar with expertise in addiction issues and someone who is also an addict.

If you have a question you would like answered, email it to editor@kamloopsthisweek.com. Anonymity is guaranteed. istry. It creates new neuronal pathways that strengthen with use. My thinking and my perception of the world becomes distorted. Addiction requires explanations, excuses and justifications to stay alive. It needs me to lie to myself. I am constantly aware of my thinking, of how my disease is trying to trick me back into use. It’s like a snake is inside my brain, pretending to be asleep, but it’s eyes are wide open, constantly seeking, searching for something it can use as an excuse to go back into hell. Asking for help and being honest, open-minded and willing are the three main components of getting well. Honesty requires telling the truth — to someone. Find someone you can trust, someone who loves you, someone who will help navigate the way. Then call someone less involved with you and your life, an outsider who has gone down the same path, but is farther along. If I want to learn welding, I do not ask my mother to teach me,

nor my spouse, nor my friend. I seek an expert. This means someone who knows something about welding. Too often we go to a doctor, who, despite all best intentions, does not really know what to do when an addict is asking which way to go. Kamloops is a recovery mecca. When you enter into our privileged world (yes, it is privileged as recovery brings people and dreams alive), you will find doctors, lawyers, artists, mothers, fathers, grandparents, teenagers and other everyday, yet extraordinary, people enjoying their life. Search online for rehabilitation centres. They are out there — Sage, Phoenix and others. Google AA/NA in Kamloops. Go to a meeting, be brave and put up your hand. Say your name, own your life and claim your right to recovery. You are not a bad person wanting to get better, only a sick person trying to get well. You will be amazed before you are halfway through.

JOIN IN FOR A GOOD CAUSE Friday to Sunday The Daybreak Rotary Ribfest has returned for its seventh year. Ribs from several award-winning barbecuers will be served this weekend from Friday to Sunday until 9 p.m. each night. This year’s ribbers include Boss Hog’s (London, Ont.), Gator BBQ (Florida, now Ont.), House of Q (Vancouver), Misty Mountain BBQ (Hinton, Alta.), Prairie Smoke and Spice (Sask.) and Smoke and Bones BBQ (B.C.). On Sunday, local breweries will take over the beer gardens, with brews from The Noble Pig, Red Collar Brewing and Iron Road Brewing on offer. The event itself has raised more than $600,000 for community organizations and charities. In the past, Rotary has used the proceeds from Ribfest to help fund organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters, Kamloops Sports Council, YMCA/YWCA, Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, Interior Freeze Athletics, Atmosphere Jump Start, Smart Start and Rotaract, Rotary’s youth program. The event has provided more than its direct fundraising. Since it began in 2012, the event has had an economic impact of $23 million on the city of Kamloops. A study done last year concluded that the event had more than 52,000 visitors, with many returning more than once.

SOLVING THE STRAW Kamloops couple pitching a collapsible metal straw sees success with online crowdfunding campaign

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops couple has come up with a new convenient take on the reusable straw that’s proven popular on an online fundraising platform. Emily and James Price, who called Kamloops home for 20 years before moving to Hawaii in January, began a Kickstarter campaign on July 3 aimed at replacing plastic straws with a more environmentallyfriendly option. After just a week, they’ve already reached their funding goal. ViableStraw is a patented metal, telescopic straw said to

be the first of its kind and was developed by the couple in an effort to produce an easy way for people to choose an ecofriendly alternative to single-use plastic straws. “What we wanted to do was make [metal straws] ultra convenient and easy to remember to bring with you everywhere,” Emily Price told KTW. Their collapsible metal straw is air tight with rounded edges and comes with a metal case that can be hooked to a key chain so that they can be taken anywhere. The campaign reached 50 per cent of it’s $10,000 goal in less than 24 hours and 100 per cent as of Monday, Price said.

Once the campaign is complete, the couple will send out a survey to all of their backers — currently they have 192 — and place a bulk order with their manufacturer. The couple have spent the past several months using their savings to develop the straw. The benefit of the fundraiser, Price said, is the increased exposure that comes with the crowdfunding website. As of Tuesday, the campaign had 15 more days to go and had raised $12,727. While the couple has always strived to use less and keep sustainability in mind while living in B.C., the idea for the straw

didn’t come until after they moved to Hawaii, where they were shocked by the amount of plastics they would find washed up on beaches — from straws to bags and even entire car bumpers. “We started getting involved in things, adopting beaches we would go to frequently with our dogs, learning more about the issue, partaking in some educational stuff at the university here that they would put on for people to learn more about plastic pollution,” Emily said. She said the couple began contemplating how to get people to care about the issue and make a change to use less plastic.

The result was a new take on the metal straw with the first of what was many prototypes consisting of rolled up paper. The couple told KTW they know tackling the straw is a small start, as other plastics like bags, cups and containers are also parts of the problem, but they think it’s a good place to start to drive change. The move to reusable straws is one that has been making headlines, most notably with the coffee giant Starbucks, citing environmental threats to the oceans, moving to ban plastic straws in its stores by 2020. The company estimates it will eliminate

one billion plastic straws per year, which will be replaced with specialized lids that don’t require a straw or paper straws. After Kickstarter, the Prices plan to reach out to retailers such as Starbucks and McDonalds to license their eco-friendly product. They also

hope their hometown of Kamloops will follow suit with other cities like Vancouver, which passed a law banning plastic straws, and Victoria, which recently banned plastic bags. Price said she and her husband plan to return to live in B.C. in the near future.

Canned food companies to increase prices to combat aluminum tariffs TARA DESCHAMPS

CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Soup, soda and beer makers can’t seem to put a lid on the effects of the recent aluminum tariffs. The 10 per cent fees that were slapped on imports of the metal by U.S. President Donald Trump in early July are making cans more expensive and forcing food and beverage companies that rely on them for packaging to consider price increases and other ways to offset the costs. The Campbell Company of Canada, which produces canned soup at its soon-toclose Etobicoke plant, is set to jack up prices in late August on a “broad range of products.’’ The exact amount by which prices will be increased is still under consideration, but the tariffs combined with raising freight, packaging and ingredient costs are to blame, company spokesperson Alexandra Sockett told The Canadian

Press in an email. Molson Coors Brewing Company admitted on its most recent earnings call that it might be forced to make a similar move. “We’ve made no secret about the fact that aluminum tariffs and freight and the unjustified increase in the Midwest premium [aluminum surcharge] are having a negative impact on our cost structure and they may factor into future pricing decisions,’’ Molson’s president and chief executive officer Gavin Hattersley said. Coca-Cola’s CEO James Quincey similarly told U.S. media recently that it too will raise prices because of the tariffs and rising labour costs, but in a statement, spokesperson Shannon Denny said in Canada the company faces “similar cost pressures as the U.S.’’ but isn’t sure if it will implement the same increases here. Meanwhile, Mississaugabased Cott Corporation, which produces water, coffee

and colas, didn’t seem to be considering price hikes, but says it has instead applied for tariff exemptions for some of its products and is looking at alternative suppliers to mitigate costs. Thomas Harrington, Cott’s president of services and chief executive officer of its DSS bottled water and coffee business unit, said the company is facing tariff-related costs because it procures coolers for product distribution from China, which has imposed about $60 billion of tariffs on products from the U.S., where Cott does plenty of business. As a result, he said, Cott is working towards “relatively modest’’ rent increases for the coolers customers can borrow from the company. “While we’ve preferred not to see these types of costs impact our business, we understand that these external factors come and go all the time,’’ he said. “We are well positioned to manage these types of issues.’’

Air Transat, Flair Airlines the latest additions to list of loyalty points partners CANADIAN PRESS

Partnership agreements between Aimia Inc. and two more Canadian airlines have taken flight, slated to take effect after the Montreal-based company’s current agreement with Air Canada ends in July 2020. One of Aimia’s new partners is Air Transat, a long-established airline owned by Montreal-based travel and leisure company Transat AT. Aimia’s other new partner is Flair Airlines, which began operating no-frills scheduled services to several cities last year from a hub at Edmonton International Airport. They join Toronto-based Porter Airlines as recent partners in the Aeroplan points system, which Air Canada has said it will replace with its own loyalty points program when the Aimia contract expires. Aimia’s three new preferred partner fleets add up to a fraction of Air Canada’s, but Aimia has also been in discussions with the Oneworld

airline alliance, whose members include British Airways, American Airlines and Cathay Pacific. Air Canada led a consortium of bidders, which includes the key Aeroplan credit card partners Toronto-Dominion Bank, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Visa Canada, to buy the loyalty program for as much as $325 million plus $2 billion of points liabilities, an offer that Aimia rejected last week. Aimia CEO Jeremy Rabe said his plan aims to open up destination options for Aeroplan customers after July 2020. “This is an exciting step toward our goal of providing Aeroplan Members with great value when both earning and redeeming miles on travel bookings to popular holiday and transatlantic destinations,’’ Rabe said in a release Tuesday. Aeroplan and Air Canada have each assured their customers that the Aeroplan points will be honoured as usual until their long-term contract expires in two years.

Are There Alternatives to Stocks & Bonds? Given the current environment of rising rates and late stage of the business cycle, we believe investors' wealth could be vulnerable to a drawdown. We have been doing a ton of research to find other investments that could offer consistent returns with less risk. Ultimately, we hope these investments would be limited in the depth, duration and frequency of drawdowns. Over 20 years ago, foundations, endowments and pension plans could allocate 100% to bonds because interest rates were approximately 7.25% and they could meet their short and long-term objectives. Currently, a 10-year government bond only yields 2.3% which means either these portfolios need more money or different strategies. For example, in 1997 Parliament created the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board to ensure its long-term sustainability. The end result reduced bonds from 100% to only 30%. Many large pools of money have shifted their portfolios away from standard investments like stocks and bonds into “alternative investments”. According to Ernst & Young survey, the primary reason such institutions invest in alternatives is to improve the quality of the returns. Technically, they desire uncorrelated returns, enhanced diversification and superior risk-adjusted returns. In the United States, most college and university endowments voluntarily reported to the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO). In 2017, over 800 members which include notables like Harvard, Yale, Princeton reported the following average asset allocation: 4% Cash 8% Fixed Income 16% US Stocks 19% Foreign Stocks 53% Alternatives

We feel investors should take a hard look at their portfolio mix now more than ever. The Alternative Universe is rather large and difficult to navigate. For simplicity, Alternatives can be broken down into three broad categories: Description

Benefits & Evidence

1) Real Assets

Physical assets that typically fall into: 1) Real Estate 2) Infrastructure 3) Resources These are often more stable, less cyclical than traditional stocks but take longer to sell.

Brookfield noted that real assets tend to increase in value as replacement costs and operational efficiency rise over time. Cash-flow from real estate and infrastructure can provide predictable, steady and inflation protected income.

2) Private Debt & Equity

Private Debt focus is fast-growing, medium-sized companies that banks do not service. These debts can range from Senior Secured to more Distressed situations. Private Equity is direct ownership in a company and often carries hold periods of 5+ years.

Private debt as measured by the Cliffwater Direct Lending Index has averaged 9.69% since inception in 2004, positive results every year except in 2008 a loss of -6.5%.

3) Hedge Funds

Use advanced strategies like: options, futures, leverage, stop-losses, shorting, Long-Short, Market Neutral, Global Macro, Arbitrage

The primary use is limiting drawdown frequency, depth and duration. In February 2009, the Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index dropped 20% vs 53% for the S&P500.

Sources: Investopedia, Brookfield, Cliffwater, Credit Suisse

Because Alternatives are less regulated they are typically only accessible to accredited investors or through a licensed Portfolio Manager. In addition, they can be less transparent and more of a challenge to determine good from bad. Many of these strategies have higher minimums and liquidity restrictions where you might have wait up to a year to get your money out. As for costs, management fees typically range from 0.5% to 1.5% per year. For all the reasons mentioned above and more, the alternative space is incredibly difficult to navigate. We strongly recommend that investors work with an experienced Portfolio Manager to determine the best solutions for their wealth. Again, we strongly feel investors should focus on building portfolios to be resilient in today’s world. The end result is you should be able to build with a more consistent performing portfolio.

Cost to twin Trans Mountain pipeline now $1.9B higher, Kinder Morgan says CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Kinder Morgan Canada documents say expanding the Trans Mountain pipeline will cost the federal government another $1.9 billion beyond the company’s original construction estimate and will take another full year to complete. The figure is included in documents Kinder Morgan Canada filed on Tuesday with the United States Security and Exchange Commission related to the company’s plan to sell the pipeline to the Canadian government for $4.5 billion. Kinder Morgan has long said it would cost $7.4 billion to expand

the pipeline, but the financial documents now say the company expects a $9.3-billion price tag. The documents also suggest construction won’t be done until December 2021 — a full year beyond the last projection of December 2020. Finance Minister Bill Morneau has been reluctant to discuss how much more it will cost to build the pipeline while the deal is still being finalized, and the closing date for that deal is now being pushed back well into the fall. The documents also say shareholders will meet on Aug. 30 in Calgary to vote on the proposed sale.

NEW YORK — Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Tuesday that he is considering taking the electric car maker private, causing the company's stock to spike. In keeping with his unorthodox style, Musk made the outof-the-blue announcement in a terse tweet. He said he may take the company private at $420 a share and already has secured funding. “Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured,'' Musk tweeted, following up with “good morning'' and a smiley emoji. His tweet came hours after the Financial Times reported that Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund had built a significant stake in Tesla Inc., but it was unclear if that was the funding Musk was referring to. The Financial Times, citing unnamed people with direct knowledge of the mat-

ter, said Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund had built a stake of between three and five per cent of Telsa’s shares. Tesla did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The company's shares were up more than five per cent at more than $360. It's highly unusual for the head of a major company make a significant announcement in such casual manner. The tweet prompted questions about how serious Musk's intentions were. His asking price of $420 would be 22 per cent of Monday's closing share price, and nearly nine per cent above the stock's all-time closing high of $385. The figure even drew some jokes on Twitter about whether it was a pot reference, with 420 being a common slang term for marijuana. Musk's tweet came two weeks after Tesla revealed it had burned through $739.5 million in cash on its way to a record

$717.5 million net loss in the second quarter, as it cranked out more electric cars. Tesla has spent millions as it reached a goal of producing 5,000 Model 3 sedans per week by the end of June. The company says production is rising, with the goal of 6,000 per week by the end of August. Musk pledged earlier this month to post net profits in future quarters, and said he expects the company to avoid returning to the markets for capital and to be self-funding going forward. Musk's abrasive style has often been a source of friction with Wall Street. Earlier this year, he caused a stir during a first quarter earnings call when he angrily cut off two analysts whose questions annoyed him. The CEO apologized to those analysts during the second quarter call. Musk's other company, aerospace firm SpaceX, is privately owned.

Global rights group slams Bangladesh government for attacks JULHAS ALAM

ASSOCIATED PRESS

DHAKA, Bangladesh — A global human rights group on Tuesday accused Bangladesh’s government of using abusive measures in handling student-led protests calling for safer roads. New York-based Human Rights Watch said in a statement that ruling party men armed with sticks and machetes have swooped in on the protesters and journalists since the students took to the streets on July 29 after two students were killed in a road accident in the nation’s capital, Dhaka. Several journalists, including an Associated Press photographer, have been attacked. The government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has denied the allegations that its activists were involved, though reports and

witnesses have given a different picture. “It would be shameful if the Sheikh Hasina government is deploying party hoodlums to target students for demanding safe roads,’’ said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “Bangladeshi authorities must immediately halt the violence perpetrated by government supporters against protesters and journalists and respect the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly,’’ he said. The rights group also criticized the arrest of Shahidul Alam, a renowned photographer and activist, on charges of spreading false information about the protests and propaganda against the government under an information technology law. A court on Monday allowed police to keep him

in custody for seven days for questioning. His colleagues said Alam was tortured after he was detained on Sunday night. The group demanded punishment for the attackers, instead of the activists. It also said the government should ensure that security forces respect basic human rights standards on the use of force, including in dispersing demonstrations. “Yet again, Bangladesh authorities seem determined to take abusive shortcuts to problems and then denounce those who criticize,’’ Adams said. “The authorities should immediately release anyone, including Shahidul Alam, they have locked up for peaceful criticism.’’ On Monday, Amnesty International criticized Hasina’s government for its handling of the situation. Bangladesh’s leading English-

language Daily Star was also critical of the government’s handling of the situation in an editorial on Tuesday. “This ... is a violation of the media’s constitutional right to free expression, press freedom and the right to information, and is totally unacceptable in a democracy,’’ the editorial said. “Unfortunately the image of the country has suffered, not because of what the students have done but because of the way the government has handled the issue.’’ Weeklong traffic chaos created by the protests began easing Monday, as immense demonstrations gave way to sporadic protests. The protests grew last week to tens of thousands of people, becoming a major embarrassment to Hasina’s government, which faces a general election

later this year. Bangladesh’s cabinet on Monday endorsed a draft law that would increase the maximum punishment for an accident leading to death to five years in jail, up from the current three years. If someone is killed deliberately, a defendant could receive capital punishment, the law says. The student protesters have demanded tougher punishment for offences involving road accidents. Hasina said the students’ demands were logical and she would work to meet them in phases. She urged the students to go back to school. She has blamed the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, led by former prime minister Khaleda Zia, and its main ally Jamaat-e-Islami for an attempt to manipulate student anger to foment trouble.

Ebola vaccinations could start Wednesday in Congo outbreak AL-HADJI KUDRA MALIRO

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BENI, Congo — The deadly Ebola virus has killed at least nine people in Congo’s latest outbreak in North Kivu province, the country’s health ministry said Tuesday, while the World Health Organization said vaccinations could begin as early as Wednesday. The outbreak declared last week in North Kivu in the northeast near Uganda and Rwanda is a new outbreak and not connected to the one in Congo’s northwest that was declared over

on July 24, WHO’s emergency preparedness chief, Peter Salama, said on Twitter. Salama cited new results of genetic analysis that confirm the strain of Ebola in the new outbreak is the Zaire strain, one for which the vaccine can be used. Congo’s health ministry has said the new vaccination campaign will target health-care providers, contacts of confirmed Ebola cases and their contacts, the same strategy that was used to contain the previous outbreak in Equateur province in which more than 3,300 people were vaccinated. That outbreak more than

2,500 kilometres (1,553 miles) away had 33 confirmed Ebola deaths. WHO has said 3,000 doses of the vaccine are still in Congo’s capital, Kinshasa, and it can access up to 300,000 more on short notice. Health experts in the city closest to the new outbreak, Beni, have been setting up “cold chains’’ to keep the vaccines at the optimal temperature of minus-70 degrees Celsius (minus-158 degrees Fahrenheit), a challenge in a region with hot temperatures and unreliable power supplies.

WHO has warned this new outbreak poses a particular challenge as the region is a “war zone’’ with several active armed groups and tens of thousands of displaced people. Heavily travelled borders nearby with Uganda and Rwanda also complicate efforts to contain the disease, which is spread via contact with the bodily fluids of those infected, including the dead. In addition to the nine Ebola deaths confirmed in the new outbreak, which was declared Aug. 1, the health minister, Dr. Oly Ilunga Kalenga, said in a statement Tuesday there are

also 16 confirmed cases of the hemorrhagic fever, 27 probable cases and now 46 suspected ones under investigation. Health experts have identified at least 966 contacts who are now under surveillance. Congo has dealt with Ebola for decades and this is its tenth outbreak of the virus. Ebola, first identified in the country in 1976, jumps to humans from animals including bats and monkeys. There is no specific treatment, and the virus can be fatal in up to 90 per cent of cases, depending on the strain.

Man saved from quake-flattened mosque on Indonesian island ASSOCIATED PRESS

LADING-LADING, Indonesia — Soldiers have pulled a man alive from the rubble of a large mosque flattened by an earthquake on the Indonesian island of Lombok, while thousands of homeless villagers waited for aid Tuesday and stranded tourists camped at beaches and in the lobbies of damaged hotels. The north of Lombok has been devastated by the magnitude 7.0 quake that struck Sunday night,

killing at least 105 people, seriously injuring more than 230 and destroying thousands of buildings. Two days after the quake, rescuers were still struggling to reach all the affected areas and authorities expected the death toll to rise. Disaster officials have not said how many people they believe are buried beneath the ruins of the Jabal Nur mosque in LadingLading but the village head, Budhiawan, said about 30 based on unclaimed belongings left outside.

Video shot on Monday by a soldier showed rescuers shouting “Thank God’’ as a man was pulled from a space under the mosque’s flattened roof and then staggered away from the ruins supported by soldiers. “You’re safe, mister,’’ said one of the soldiers as emotion overcame the man, clad in Islamic robes, and villagers crowded around him. About 90 personnel from the military, police and national search and rescue agency swarmed around the flattened building

Tuesday, using cutting equipment to pry apart the tangled debris. By nightfall they were pulling out, saying other areas, including another collapsed mosque, needed their heavy equipment and workers more urgently. Muhamad Juanda, who narrowly escaped the mosque collapse, said 100 people were praying inside when the earth began to roll. Many got out but dozens were trapped, he said. “When the earthquake happened, I stopped praying with doz-

ens of other people. I stayed during the first shock, but the shock grew stronger and we rolled around trying to run out,’’ he said. Two people were rescued from the debris Monday including a woman with a broken leg, said villager Supri Yono, and three were found dead. An AP reporter saw one body recovered Tuesday. Aid organizations, already on Lombok after it was hit a week earlier by a 6.4 quake that killed 16 people, said they were stepping up their humanitarian efforts.

Broncos aim to learn from loss to Sun MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

It wasn’t a complete tire fire. That might not sound like much, but it’s something for the Kamloops Broncos, who fell 55-6 to the Okanagan Sun of Kelowna in front of about 600 spectators at Hillside Stadium on Sunday. Okanagan (1-0), almost always among the best junior football teams in the country, carried a 38-0 lead into halftime after capitalizing on specialteams gaffes and good field position, the latter provided in part by an anemic Kamloops offence. “Special teams really hurt us,” Broncos’ head coach Brad Yamaoka said. “We preached to the guys that special teams is a huge part of this game. We are going to be looking at that.” Kamloops finished the game with 38 yards of net offence, five first downs and 15 punts, while Okanagan compiled 418 yards of net offence, 22 first downs and seven punts. The Broncos (0-1) started well on defence and the game was scoreless until the home team’s rookie starting quarterback, Reid

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Gabe Saklofsky of the Kamloops Broncos goes airborne under duress from Nicholas Dheilly of the Okanagan Sun in B.C. Football Conference play at Hillside Stadium on Sunday. The Sun cruised to a 55-6 victory in the Week 1 matchup.

Vankoughnett, threw a pick six, with Okanagan defensive back Tye Kitzman jumping a route and rumbling about 50 yards to paydirt with 2:33 remaining in the first quarter. Mistakes are expected from

the 18-year-old pivot and that was one of them. The game never seemed too big or fast for Vankoughnett, who became more comfortable with each quarter and received very little help from a crew of receivers that

dropped too many balls. Kamloops offensive co-ordinator Jesse Neufeld called a conservative game in the first half, aiming to ease his signal caller into his first junior football tilt. He took the reins off

Vankoughnett a little more in the third and fourth quarters. “We’ve got to make plays for him and get his confidence up,” Yamoaka said when asked about well-thrown deep balls that slipped through receivers’ fingers. Vankoughnett was 4-for-22, throwing for 27 yards and one interception; Andrew Pocrnic led Kamloops’ rushing attack, with 31 yards on 11 carries; and Matt Wight was the Broncos’ top receiver, his one catch going for 18 yards. The second quarter was disastrous for Kamloops. Sun quarterback Jakob Loucks found Kelton Kouri with a short pass, which the running back took to the house to make it 13-0, dancing through the Kamloops secondary with ease. The Broncos’ special-teams mishaps began shortly after Kouri’s major, with a pair of punt-team blunders leading to Sun touchdowns. Within a span of two minutes, Loucks and running back Jesse Amankwaa punched over the goal line. Successful converts made it 28-0. See BRONCOS, A27

GOLDEN AT THE GAMES MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Tye Flukinger had the ball at the top of the key, keeping possession for the B.C. Ogopogos at the Special Olympics Canada Antigonish Summer Games on the weekend in Nova Scotia. The exhibition game against host Nova Scotia was important, used to help decide division placement for both teams, but Flukinger, from Kamloops, was more concerned with her teammate, 48-year-old Tessa Allwood, who had never scored a basket for the Ogopogos in any competition. Flukinger, who had a clear lane to the basket, dished to Allwood, the athlete from Salmon Arm who was about to benefit from a showing of sportsmanship that reflects the values of the Special Olympics. The Nova Scotians backed off, realizing Allwood desperately wanted to find twine in front of her mom, who was watching in the crowd. Allwood’s offering clanged off the rim, but bounced into the basket. “I’m getting misty eyed just talking about it,” said Leah Briault, the Ogopogos’ head coach. “The crowd exploded and Tye and other teammates hugged Tessa and she put both arms in the air, jumping for joy.” “She [Tye] is a true leader on the court. She is the Cadillac of our team, leading by example.” The Ogopogos posted a 4-0 record

in the Red C Division and won gold, knocking off the Alberta Thunder 23-13 in the championship tilt. Terrance Haimila of Kamloops is among the Team B.C. members who brought hardware back to the Tournament Capital. “He would never have been picked in high school for any sport, but is he ever a force on that court now,” said Briault, who was praised by Flukinger’s mom, Susanne, for the time she spends with Special Olympics athletes in Kamloops. “He got three-pointers and he has the courage it takes to shine.” The Ogopogos, who posted a 3-0 record and won gold in their division at the 2017 Special Olympics B.C. Summer Games in Kamloops, may have done enough to earn a trip to the world championships, which will be held in Abu Dhabi in March, but nothing has been confirmed. “It was such an eclectic, diverse experience,” Briault said. “Tye and Terrance both came out of their shell.” THE TEAM Flukinger, Haimila and Allwood’s teammates include Aaron Dixon of Kelowna, Ashley Philips of Vernon, Erin Murphy of Vernon, Ethan Sun of Kelowna, Gary Pollen of Vernon, Katelyn Oliver of Vernon and Nathan Luoma of Campbell River. Joining Briault on the sidelines in Nova Scotia were a pair of assistant coaches, Donny Gillanders of Richmond and Geoff Uttley of Surrey.

1993 Canada Summer Games to be celebrated in Riverside Park MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Vic Poleschuk was president of the 1993 Canada Summer Games in Kamloops.

Steve Nash and Catriona Le May Doan used the 1993 Canada Summer Games in Kamloops to help launch some of the most notable careers in Canadian sports history.

This city used the Games to help establish its identity. “The biggest thing is what an impact it had on Kamloops as a community and how it has laid the foundation for so many other great events to be hosted by Kamloops,” said Vic Poleschuk, who was president of the 1993 Games. “The legacy of community pride, community spirit, volunteerism and event management — all of those things are really the cornerstones of the Tournament Capital of Canada program today.” The Games, which ran from Aug. 6 to Aug. 22, featured more than 8,400 volunteers. Kamloops had a population of about 70,000 in 1993. More than 3,000 athletes and 675 coaches and managers participated at facilities across the city, many of which were built or improved in time for the event, with about $11 million poured into infrastructure upgrades. Benefitting facilities included the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, Hillside Stadium, Kamloopa Club, the Shumway

Lake Regatta Centre, the sailing centre at Nicola Lake, Kamloops Rugby Club, Charles Anderson Stadium, the Rotary Tennis Centre, Cottonwood Park and Canada Games Field, along with more upgrades on McArthur Island. “The key thing with that is what the community has done with those since that time, which I think is the far more important part,” said Poleschuk, who at 64 is semi-retired but still working for a Vancouver company in the gaming business. “The sport programming and athletic development, those are things that led to folks like Dylan Armstrong being able to train locally, compete provincially and internationally, and then you win an Olympic medal,” Poleschuk said. More than $700,000 of sporting equipment was supplied for the Games. Poleschuk praised members of the local sports community for picking up the torch and running with it, mentioning Henry Pejril and Norm Daley for their work in organizing major

events such as the Brier, Western Canada Summer Games and Women’s World Hockey Championship. The national event held 25 years ago was also part of the genesis of Music in the Park, sponsored then and now by the B.C. Lottery Corporation, which was an official sponsor of the 1993 Games. “It was a tremendous moment of community unification, with sponsors jumping on board,” Poleschuk said. “Everyone did that and played a part to make it happen.” Poleschuk is asking those who attend a 25th anniversary celebration event on Wednesday to bring memorabilia from the Games to help mark the occasion. The event will begin at 6:40 p.m. at the Rotary Park Riverside Bandshell, before Music in the Park programming gets underway. “As I’ve talked to a number of folks over the last few weeks and months, it’s really less about celebrating what we did 25 years ago and more about recognizing how pivotal that event was in making Kamloops what it is today,” Poleschuk said.

SURVIVORS GET MIRACLE TREAT MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

Becky Boughton was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 29 and pregnant — and told she may not make it to full term. Doctors said the effects of chemotherapy and surgery on her unborn child were unknown. That news came in 2010. Boughton gave birth to Luke in 2011. They are in Ontario this week to kick off Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day, with the ice cream juggernaut, Children’s Miracle Network and the Toronto Blue Jays providing a VIP experience for a few families before a Major League Baseball contest. “Everyone has stuff,” Boughton said. “We just go day by day. We have a lot of faith and we have the mentality, at least I do, to enjoy each day. “This will be a celebration. It was a nice surprise. That kind of stuff never happens to us. That’s how I felt when I got the phone call.” Luke’s brother Braden, 14, and dad, Jeff Webb, will also be on the trip,

which will offer a behindthe-scenes tour of Rogers Centre and an on-field viewing of batting practice before the Jays play the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday. At his two-year checkup, doctors found a murmur in Luke’s heart and he was diagnosed with aortic stenosis and regurgitation. Luke, who has also been diagnosed with aortic dilation, had open heart surgery and will likely have to have another one. The organ will have to be monitored closely for the rest of his life. “I don’t hold him back,” Boughton said. “We weren’t particularly supposed to be here.” Luke pitches heat in the Kamloops Minor Baseball Association ranks and is coached

Broncos prepare for trip to Vancouver Island From A24

“There were probably eight or nine minutes where we were really bad,” said Kurtis Mutschmann, who was a bright spot on Kamloops’ defensive line. “We had some mistakes on special teams that really screwed us over, especially our punt team.” Kamloops’ second first down of the contest came with 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter, when Vankoughnett scrambled to move the chains. The rare positive offensive moment did not provide a spark. Kouri’s second touchdown, a short run, was set up by Malcom Miller. The receiver rumbled for a big chunk of yards after a reception near midfield, realizing the Broncos’ defenders had lost contain and bolting around the edge to bring the Sun deep into the red zone. There was a moral victory for the Broncos before the

half, a goal-line stand that kept the Sun from adding to their 38-0 lead. Casey Powell made an important tackle that led to a turnover on downs. “Credit to Kamloops,” Sun head coach Ben Macauley said. “They kept coming. They have a bunch of talented young players.” Macauley insisted he did not take his foot off the gas in the second half, but the Sun pulled key starters and replaced them with secondand third-string players. Okanagan kicker Isaac Wegner, whom the Broncos tried to woo to Kamloops, showed off his big leg with 9:59 left in the third quarter, booting a long field goal to make it 41-0. What was indubitably Kamloops’ highlight of the sizzling-hot night (it was about 34 C) came next. Defensive lineman Damian Person noticed the Sun were using a replacement guard, so he bull-rushed and managed to get to the quarterback, who

was back-pedalling inside the Sun’s red zone. “We were just trying to make big plays, so our teammates could rally around it,” Person said. “I managed to get the strip-sack. It just shows we never gave up.” The ball hit the turf and bounced to Mutschmann, a Kelowna product. “It was a dream,” Mutschmann told reporters after the game. “The ball is there all of a sudden and I was like, oh, what, is this happening right now? You pick it up and it’s just, ‘Don’t fall. Don’t fall.’” He remained upright and scored the Broncos’ only touchdown of the game. The Sun led 41-6 after Kamloops could not make good on a two-point conversion attempt. Special teams (which were a tire fire) promptly quelled any Broncos’ momentum. Conor Richard of the Sun returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, showboating along the way

to make it 48-6. The visitors tacked on a rouge and Mahler hit Cole Stroud for a touchdown pass to round out the scoring. “We’ve got to learn from it,” Yamaoka said. “If we go out and do the same things next week, it’s going to be a very long season. “They’re a good football team. It’s not like we came in here and lost to a team we should have beat. They’re good.” Kamloops will travel to Nanaimo this weekend to play the Vancouver Island Raiders, who will be champing at the bit to prove a 33-31 loss to the Valley Huskers in Chilliwack on Sunday was an anomaly. Okanagan will square off against the Westshore Rebels in Langford this weekend. The Rebels edged the hometown Langley Rams 19-16 on Saturday. The Broncos’ next home game is slated for Saturday, Aug. 18, when the Rebels come to town. Game time is 6 p.m.

Mary Louise Chutter (née Masuret) passed away peacefully on July 26, 2018. She was 96 years of age. Mary Lou was born to Canadian parents on January 27, 1922 in Tacoma, Washington. She was brought up and graduated from high school in Kellogg, Idaho, where her father worked. She then moved to Vancouver, BC to attend Sprott Shaw Business School.

Those we love don’t go away They walk beside us every day Unseen, unheard but always near So loved, so missed, so very dear

She was working for the Bank of Commence in Vancouver when she met her life partner Philip Chutter. They were married in 1943 and were together for 60 years. Phil passed away in 2003.

Carla was born in Kamloops, British Columbia on April 3, 1962 and had married Terry Furseth on December 27, 1984. She was a devoted mother and grandmother, always thinking about her children and grandchildren first, right to the end. She was an avid reader and collector of books and was very accomplished at crochet, handing down various keepsakes and treasures that will now be cherished forever. She was a kind soul and was always willing to help out people and animals alike, having rescued many animals throughout her life, she gave them all a welcome loving home. She meant the world to the people in her life and now the world will be a little more dim. When she died, all things bright and beautiful were taken with her.

Jean Frances Burris

On July 31, 2018, Jean died peacefully at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home. Jean was the youngest child of John Alan Leckie and Grace Frances Leckie. She was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, attending elementary and secondary school at Prince of Wales, before obtaining a BA at UBC. Jean enjoyed a wide variety of interests throughout her life. Outdoor activities included downhill skiing at Tod Mountain in that resort’s early years, then cross-country skiing locally and in the Rockies. She was a good hiker and walker and until the end she was using her walking sticks, waving off any help in moving about. In her younger years she enjoyed badminton and was instrumental for many years in the organization and development of junior badminton in Kamloops. She loved to read and listen to music and was always keen to learn about and discuss any topic. She was a determined and competitive bridge player for many years. She thoroughly enjoyed many long term friendships that were developed as a result of her varied interests. On perhaps one of her greatest adventures, she met her future husband Stewart Burris on a transatlantic sailing from Quebec City to Liverpool, England, in September of 1950. They wed in 1951, in London and were married for 66 years until Stewart’s death in January of 2018. Jean is survived by sons Alan (Sherry) of Kamloops, BC and Gordon (Terri) of Calgary, AB and daughter-in-law Adele of Kamloops, BC. She will be missed by grandchildren Tim, Adam, Jamie-Lee, Christie, Jeff and Sarah. She will also be remembered by many nieces and nephews, including Jean, Ruth and John Leckie who became very close to her after their mother’s death. Jean was also predeceased by her son John and her brother Bob Leckie. The family extends their appreciation to Kamloops Seniors Village and to the Hospice Home, as well as to Jean’s two wonderful helpers Charmaine and Bonnie. Additionally, we would like to thank Dr. Francois Malan and Judy for their care of Jean over the past years. No service will be held as per Jean’s wishes. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home in her memory. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason Will change the way we feel For no-one knows the heartache That lies behind our smiles No-one knows how many times We have broken down and cried We want to tell you something So there won’t be any doubt You’re so wonderful to think of But so hard to be without.

Love you always, and miss you so much. Forever in our hearts. Love you Kid!

He was very dedicated to his work and was respected and trusted to make the right choices. Jim’s life revolved around family; he was always there for all of us. Jim found his real calling as the best Grampa to our two beautiful grandchildren Alexis and Anthony. He would have moved a mountain for them. They were the light in his eyes and the smile in his heart while swimming at the Shuswap, skiing at Sun Peaks and being their number one fan at all of their events. A Memorial Service will be held at the Merritt Civic Centre on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in Jim’s name would be greatly appreciated.

Obituaries & In Memoriam Mary Ferguson

Maria (Ria) Alida Josepha Turkenburg It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Maria (Ria) Alida Josepha Turkenburg on August 5, 2018.

(née Lesyk)

Born in Poland September 15, 1923 Died on August 4, 2018

Mary is survived by her two sons James and Bruce. She was a teacher for a small part of her life. She married James Henry Ferguson and her early years were spent as a ranchers wife. Most of her life she was a stay at home mom. There will be no service as this was what Mary wanted with the simplest obituary possible.

Ria is survived by her five children Alice, Yvonne (Mark Allen), Judy (Lorne Wilcock), John (Michelle) and Ann (Kevin Scott), her grandchildren Jordana (Kaven Pereira), Matthew, Nicholas, Britni, Lexi, Logan and Ethan. Ria was predeceased by her husband Joe (2012) and her infant daughter Shirley (1957). Mom was born on March 11, 1928 in Vijfhuizen, Netherlands. Mom was the youngest daughter in her family of seven siblings. At a dance in 1950, she met Dad, the love of her life. They were married in 1952 and soon after Dad immigrated to Canada to set up a new life for his bride. In 1953, with all her treasures sewn safely inside her coat, Mom travelled from Holland to join Dad in Enderby, BC. Shortly afterwards, they settled in Kamloops where they purchased Park Avenue Bakery and started their family. Mom took great pleasure in raising her five children and working in the bakery. Mom learned English with her love of reading. She was an excellent seamstress and avid knitter. Many babies in Kamloops have been the recipients of her beautiful creations donated to the RIH Gift Shop and other local charities. Mom and Dad enjoyed travelling to Europe, throughout Canada and cruising to Alaska and California. Family was the cornerstone of her life and she enjoyed many family gatherings at home and Sunday picnics at the Shuswap Lake.

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

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

Al and his family created many memories while camping, fishing and golfing on our numerous road trips to explore the province. The family would like to send immense gratitude to just a few of the many people who supported Al in his final months; Dr. Saeed and team at the Logan Lake Health Centre, his personal angels Theo and Ayla, Drake Smith at Drake Cremation and Funeral Services and the Staff and Volunteers at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice. Thank you also to the community of Logan Lake for the love and support during this difficult time.

The Angel on Your Shoulder By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

There’s an angel on your shoulder Though you may not know she’s there, She watches over you day and night And keeps you in her care. There’s an angel on your shoulder Watching you learn and grow Keeping you safe from danger And nurturing your soul. She’ll be there through your triumphs She’ll dance on clouds with pride, She’ll hold your hand through disappointments and fears, Standing faithfully by your side. In her lifetime this angel was strong and true, And stood up for what was right. In your life you’ll be faced with decisions and trials And she’ll shine down her guiding light. Life holds so much in store for you, So remember as you grow older, There are no heights you cannot reach ‘Cause there’s an angel on your shoulder. Bereavement Publishing Inc. 5125 N.

SUDOKU FUN BY THE NUMBERS

Dates

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

Some people like to write numeric dates with the month first. July 31 gets written as “07/31” (maybe without the zero). Others prefer to write them day first as in “31/07.” July 31 is not ambiguous because there is no 31st month, but dates such as 08/06 are. (Is that June 8 or August 6?)

ANSWERS

How many ambiguous month/day or day/ month dates are there in a year?

Answer to last week’s RECTANGLES PUZZLE: There are 64 non-square rectangles.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

AUGUST 8 - AUGUST 14, 2018 LIBRA

- Sept 23/Oct 23 This is a prime time to nurture business relationships that could push your employment career into a new direction, Libra. There are many possibilities at your disposal.

Cancer, it is very easy to get wrapped up in the problems of others. But sometimes you have to let others work things out on their own. Offer advice if it is sought.

It can be challenging to silence your suspicious mind, Aries. Not everyone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Avoid gossip whenever possible, and you’ll be fine.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

Wear your heart on your sleeve, Taurus. Doing so may endear you to others. It may seem like you’re putting all your cards on the table, but you’re showing you’re genuine.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22 It can be difficult for your detailed-oriented self to draw the line at what to include in a task and what to leave out. You strive for perfection in all you do, Scorpio.

Leo, behind the big lion’s roar beats the heart of a pussy cat. Your sensitive side is bound to come through this week, when you may provide comfort to a person in need.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 2

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

Toning things down is not necessarily your style, Gemini. But this week you may want to keep a few details to yourself. Maintain a low profile for the next few days.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

What you show to the public may not be the true Virgo you keep close to yourself. Let a few intimate details sneak out, and you may be surprised at the reactions.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Capricorn, you want to be there for all the people who may need your assistance. But avoid stretching yourself too thin so you can approach each situation energetically.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Choose your battles, Aquarius. There are not enough hours in the day to be an activist for every cause. Only select the ones that you truly feel strongly about.

PISCES

You are wondering if you should play it safe or dance closer to the edge this week, Sagittarius. It may be because you are feeling trapped by routine. Change can be good.
