Sport fishery shut down SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

In response to the continued concern over low steelhead trout returns, the B.C. government has shut down all sport fishing on the Thompson River below Kamloops Lake, along with sections of the Fraser River. The closure, which will be in effect from Oct. 1 to May 3 of next year, comes after record-low steelhead returns on the Thompson and Chilcotin rivers. On the Fraser, fishing will be closed from the Highway 99 bridge at Lillooet downstream to BC Hydro’s tail race outflow channel and from the confluence with the Thompson River to the CNR bridge. Last fall, fewer than 200 Thompson steelhead returned and only 50 Chilcotin steelhead made the trip back up the river. In response, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (an

advisory body to the government) assessed the Thompson River and Chilcotin steelhead as endangered and recommended in February an emergency order to place the fish on the endangered list under the federally controlled Species at Risk Act. So far, the federal government has not taken that action, despite a petition to do so being presented to in the House of Commons earlier this year in May. The province said that even though catch-and-release fishing accounts for a “very small percentage” of annual steelhead mortality, it is moving ahead with the closure to support the committee’s recommendations. In March, the Fraser Basin Council’s Mike Simpson told KTW that steelhead were the fish that has “fallen between the cracks,” with issues such as commercial bycatch and climate change affecting fish populations.

ntonio Ramunno credits his family’s love — and some McDonald’s french fries — for helping him pull out of the “dark, horrible time” that followed a motorcycle accident. That crash in October 2014 left Ramunno paralyzed from the chest down and facing months of treatment and rehabilitation in various medical facilities. Almost from the moment he awoke in Vancouver General Hospital, where he spent two months, Ramunno’s family pushed him to exercise, to try to keep moving. “They would tease me with McDonald’s french fries to try and get my arms to move,” he said. “I just can’t say enough about them. They stood with me the whole time, pushed me the whole time.” And they let him turn mom Costanza’s living room into a workshop, where Ramunno designed a collection of exercise tools to help people with mobility and strength challenges exercise. While he originally aimed for those with obvious mobility issues, Ramunno said he realized the system he created would help others — seniors, people with multiple sclerosis or other conditions and those who would prefer the resistance training setup he has developed. It’s a work born out of frustration, but fuelled by his family and the people at Community Futures Thompson Country through its self-employment program. The frustration stems from Ramunno’s rehabilitation experiences. See PHSYIO, A6

For a child who has been abused, sexually assaulted or witnessed domestic violence, Kamloops is working on having a warm, child and youth friendly space for them to tell their stories. We are thrilled to announce a project in Kamloops that has been in the works for a couple years now. In partnership with Kamloops RCMP, Ministry for Children & Family Development, Secwépemc Child & Family Services, Interior Health, City of Kamloops, and Thompson Rivers University’s Canada Research Chair in Culture and Communities: Children and the Law - we would like to introduce the soon to be: Big Bear Child and Youth Advocacy Centre (BB CYAC)!

The BB CYAC’s mission is to provide a collaborative response to child maltreatment through advocacy, intervention and continued support in a child-friendly environment. This approach involves all investigative services working together under one roof, at a single facility. Before the investigation process begins at the BB CYAC, the child and family will be supported through each step of the process. This centre will provide a child-focused setting, including playrooms, toys, and support animals. Having a multi-disciplinary team in one building will strengthen communication between agencies and enhance efficiency in case-tracking and case management. The Big Bear Child and Youth Advocacy Centre will strengthen collaboration between agencies, bridge the gap of communication between agencies and increase referrals for ALL children and youth who have disclosed being maltreated while honouring their unique healing needs through the many amazing child andservices youth friendly space forhas them tell The vision is to have a community where every child and youth is respected and heard, and child maltreatment is not tolerated. that Kamloops to to offer! ip with Kamloops RCMP, Ministry for Children For Research more info Chair and BB plans, refer to our website. sity’s Canada in CYAC Culturedevelopment and

Scheffel gets bail, but remains in Slovak jail DALE BASS STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

A court in Slovakia has agreed to release a jailed Kamloops professor on bail, but David Scheffel will remain behind bars for up to three more weeks while the court considers an appeal from the prosecutor. Scheffel, a Thompson Rivers University anthropology professor, has been in a cell in Slovakia since last November, facing charges of arms trafficking, sexual violence and child pornography. Since his arrest, many academ-

ics and non-government organizations have spoken out in support of Scheffel, who has spent 16 years researching social issues within the Roma population of Slovakia. At a hearing on July 22, Scheffel spent three hours explaining the history and goals of anthropology and how his work with the Roma fit with it. In particular, he had been researching social challenges the Roma experience that lead to juvenile prostitution. During a court hearing on Monday in Presov, in eastern Slovakia, a court agreed to release Scheffel on conditions includ-

ing he remain in the country and report to authorities every two weeks. But his release remains in limbo pending a decision on the prosecutor’s appeal. In an emailed update, Scheffel said he argued that DAVID dismissing juveSCHEFFEL nile prostitution is wrong and continues to stigmatize the Roma people as “unadaptables,” which he said is the attitude of many Slovaks toward them. Ignoring it also fails

to deal with the issues of racism, oppression and poverty within the Roma community, he said. Scheffel said photographs from his laptop that were being viewed as child pornography were of nude and semi-nude Roma children, what he called “a standard scene captured by many visitors to these impoverished and chaotic communities.” He said other pictures the prosecution referenced included one of his youngest daughter after her delivery at Royal Inland Hospital. Scheffel’s research data, including his laptop, have not been

returned to him or his new lawyer to assist with his defence. He is now being represented by a former Slovak deputy prime minister and minister of justice. In his emailed update, Scheffel said he had been visited by two representatives of the Slovak government’s human-rights office, a response to his complaint to the Council of Europe about his incarceration. He said it was his first positive experience with Slovak officials, who spent several hours discussing his grievances and later met with prison managers and the warden.

Failing brakes is the suspected cause of a three-vehicle crash near Walmart on Sunday morning that sent a number of people to hospital. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Edward Preto said witnesses say an older motorhome was driving north on Hillside Drive, down a steep hill, when its brakes appeared to have failed. “It was unable to stop and went through two intersections, striking two smaller vehicles, causing one vehicle to flip on its side,” Preto said. The motorhome suffered extensive damage in the 11:15 a.m., crash, as did a Land Rover Discovery, the vehicle left overturned. Preto said some of the occupants of the three vehicles were taken to Royal Inland Hospital for treatment of undetermined injuries.

Ramunno spent a year in various facilities, including Vancouver General Hospital, G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre, Royal Inland Hospital and the Pathway to Home program at Ponderosa Lodge, where he had ongoing physiotherapy. Once finally discharged, the physio, which had been reduced through the months from three times a week to once per week, stopped altogether. Ramunno said he offered to bring his own trainer to RIH to use its equipment, but was turned down. He said he never received an explanation why. With no outpatient facility he could use and discovering exercise equipment is expensive to buy, Ramunno became dejected and began losing his mobility. “Then I thought — what have I been using that I could build myself?” Key to his exercise system are therabands, which provide lowimpact strength training. Aides had held the bands behind him as

anchors while he used the bands and tubes. “So I thought — why not throw a couple of hooks on the wall and I can skip the care aides?” Ramunno said. Next, he added a bar he has been using to retrain his body to go from sitting to standing. He said he is now able to walk a bit using a walker. “Once I got a taste for that, I used it to try and lift my legs a bit, too,” Ramunno said. From there, his Wallgym Resistance Training business was well on its way to creation. He now supplements his workouts with visits to the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA because, with some new mobility, he can use its weights for lifting. “The Y has been so good to me,” Ramunno said, noting he is creating a wall gym for the organization. Ramunno said his family suggested he also design the training wall “for regular people who can’t find equipment to buy or that the equipment they can buy takes up so much space.”

A Wallgym costs $1,500, which includes an accessory panel with bluetooth speakers, handles to hook onto a rolling rod for tricep exercises, leg bands, ankle straps and a hand strengthener. The main panel has various tensions of therabands, the bar he has used to stand with, free weights and strong hooks to attach each piece being used. Ramunno is working out of a storefront at Larkspur Street and Tranquille Road on the North Shore, a decision he made “to get out of mom’s living room.” Ramunno hopes to eventually create an outpatient gym once he has build his Wallgym business. As the former owner of River City Roofing and Siding, he is used to being busy and longed for that simple pleasure of working and being out in the community. For more information, email theWallgym@gmail.com. A website is also being created and should be live soon. Ramunno is also available in the store most days — except for his regular afternoon exercise time.

Celebrating the Wallgym Wallgym is a compact fitness system — six feet high and 3.5 feet wide — that attaches to a wall. Ramunno is donating a Wallgym system to the John Todd YMCA, where he is a member. Community Futures Thompson Country will take part in a ribbon-cutting on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 2 p.m., with an open house to follow. The public is welcome to attend. The John Todd YMCA is located at 150 Wood St. on the North Shore.

DUMB AS NAILS OR CRAFTY AS A FOX?

I

t’s hard to tell whether U.S. President Donald Trump is dumb or perhaps the most cunning politician ever. Like so many Trump pronouncements, his attack on Google sounded stupid — and was. But it was also so well-timed and inflammatory that it drew attention away from his latest self-inflicted disaster of not rendering honours for Sen. John McCain, who died after his long battle with cancer. It’s a pattern that repeats in Trumpland regularly. Something bad happens? Do something distracting. Your former campaign chair is on trial? Order the formation of a Space Force. Your political opponent is making some headway? Talk about her emails. Trump certainly has a lock on telling his base what they want to hear, but he also seems to have a sense for what will most outrage non-supporters and deflect attention from his alleged crimes, mistakes and generally poor behaviour. Because when Trump tweets about looking into regulating internet searches, the media jump on it and the story that might damage his reputation with his base gets pushed off the front page. Those who like Trump are likely to agree that search engines are treating him unfairly by putting reputable (if unflattering to him) sites at the top of the search results. Those opposed are going to be outraged at the mere suggestion of political interference. The result? Everyone forgets about the real issues. Most politicians, once they get elected, don’t want to leave people who voted against them out in the cold. They’d rather convince non-supporters they are doing a good job and maybe convert a few votes in the next election. But Trump clearly has no problems with outraging the liberal side of the spectrum, especially when he can reinforce conservative bias at the same time. It’s a pattern Trump repeats too often to be accidental; no one that devious can really be considered stupid. Or perhaps it’s all instinct, like how mosquitoes, with nearly invisible brains, unerringly seek out the juiciest targets. — Black Press

When news is not news

T

wice now, colleague Michael Potestio has attended a press conference with the minister of health, only to discover Adrian Dix was announcing something KTW had already reported. The most recent one came on Tuesday, when many Interior Health and Royal Inland Hospital administrators and doctors joined local politicians and media to hear Dix announce the family practice learning centre now has students studying in it. This means that cohort of University of British Columbia students in its residency program at RIH will now be working with patients who don’t have a primarycare physician. It’s all done under supervision of doctors. KTW reported on the family practice learning centre in February. There was no ribbon cutting, as there was in June, when Potestio was assigned to another Dix presser, this one announcing the urgent primary care centre at the hospital — which IHA also spoke to KTW about last February. The news out of the 30-minute gathering was that school is back in session. There are two large issues with this waste of time. First, Dix and his team travelled on our dime to essentially double-dip, reannouncing the centre. It would be interesting to ask what these couple of gatherings cost us. But, more importantly, it took one-third of the reporting side of our newsroom away from actually covering real news — and that speaks to the challenge of being a community newspaper.

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL Reporter Jessica Wallace and I received an email from a reader last weekend, criticizing us for not reporting in greater depth on the Federal Court of Appeal ruling on the Trans Mountain pipeline. The writer made good points, all worth looking into at some point, but continued to express disappointment in the “shallow reporting.” What that emailer — and many other people — didn’t realize is that it’s not easy covering a city of almost 100,000 people with just six reporters, three of whom also work alongside the editor in editing and laying out the papers and ensuring stories go online quickly. While contacting people for the Kinder Morgan ruling story, Wallace and I were working on several other stories, all focused on Kamloops and issues we all should care about. She was dealing with calls back for election stories, which she will be dealing with in coming weeks. I was covering yet another Dix presser while working on an investigative piece on an issue in Westsyde and another one dealing with a housing issue in the city.

That’s the new reality for hyperlocal news outlets — journalists covering multiple subjects and usually writing several stories each day. It’s all to combat what researchers are now calling “local news poverty” to ensure news people need to know in their communities is produced. In about a week, I’ll no longer be here to write on health, education, entertainment and general news. The team remaining will be picking up the slack — and busting themselves to make sure there really is no slack. Kamloops is lucky to still have a newspaper. Too many communities have lost theirs. And, yes, you can point to all the online media that have popped up in recent years, with staff who also work hard, but they also have too few people trying to do too much work. Often, they also don’t have the luxury I’ve had in the past 18 years at KTW of taking a news angle and running with it, diving deep, producing several stories that I hope provide a wealth of necessary information. Perhaps it is best to sum this column up by writing about a former community newspaper reporter who won an award from the Canadian Association of Journalists years ago for an investigative series he wrote. He couldn’t be there to accept it — tight budgets are another reality for us — so I accepted and told the crowd how this reporter did a lot of the work while sitting on the sidelines of his daughter’s soccer games or in his kitchen on his “days off.” He did it because the news matters — and wasting time on nonnews shouldn’t. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @mdalebass

[speak up] You can comment on any story you read at kamloopsthisweek.com

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

TEMPORARY-HOUSING NUMBERS ARE TOO HIGH Editor: This little diatribe is in response to an article in the local paper about the planned temporary housing facility on Mission Flats Road. I did a bit of calculating as the numbers seemed pretty significant. Planned life span for facility is 36 months, with 55 units planned. The budgeted capital cost is

$6.6 million and the budgeted operating costs are $1 million per year. So, for 36 months, the total budget is $9.6 million. Fifty-five units for three years is 55 x 3 x 365 = 60,255 person/days of accommodation. With a $9.6-million dollar budget that’s $159 per day for housing. The average month has 30.4 days, so 30.4 x $159 = $4,833 per month per resident.

Note this does not include any overruns nor any individual subsidies such as welfare cheques. And, while this is going on, the plan is to spend more money to build permanent facilities. I understand there is some expectation that some level of rent will be collected. However, given the group of individuals involved, this money will simply come from other gov-

ernment sources, such as socialassistance cheques. It is scary that anybody thinks we can spend this kind of money housing people as most working productive members of our society don’t earn this much. Indeed there is a homeless issue, but this is not a viable approach. Alex McLean Kamloops

WE HAVE SUFFERED THE EXPERIENCE OF THOSE ON ROYAL AVENUE Editor: Regarding the continued problems at the crack shack on Royal Avenue: If it means anything to the neighbours, there are others of us who have been through very similar circumstances and we can empathize with you. Let’s list a few things for a start: sleepless nights, living in fear, the onset of hypertension and other stress-related illnesses, living with

silent anger, lashing out at others who are not to blame for the situation and somehow wishing the nightmare would end. When it does end, perhaps some of the classic symptoms of PTSD live on. If it means anything to you folks, my wife and I were asked to submit victim-impact statements. Those who have been voted into office then formulated a legal strategy to combat the experience

you have been living. How is it working? The demand for illicit drugs never seems to go away. There is a fine balance between developing market share and killing off customers. It is either madness at its finest or the work of ultimate evil, whichever choice your belief system wishes to choose. For us, it has been some fourand-a-half years since the struc-

ture was taken away. What remains are the scars, the memories and a suspicious dark line on the road every watering day. We sleep better now. And we make sure we walk our dog outside the dark line, away from the edge of the road. We hope that things will soon end for you. John Noakes Kamloops

THERE IS INDEED AFFORDABLE RIVERFRONT HOUSING Editor: It was recently claimed at a public hearing that there are no affordable, multi-family dwellings on the river in this city. This claim shows great ignorance. Affordable, high-density waterfront living is plentiful all over the North Shore and is certainly not limited to

those who can afford a single detached home. Numerous affordable apartment blocks, townhomes, mobile home parks, duplexes and seniors’ residences dot the shoreline of the Thompson River. Steve Fulton Kamloops

Dumped salmon not uncommon during dominant run years SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A fishy looking scene discovered by a Kamloops resident could be the first of many this year. A large pile of salmon, each of which had been roughly filleted and discarded, was discovered by Vera Swaine just off the Trans-Canada Highway at Sugarloaf Road and Lac Le Jeune Road on the morning of Aug. 26. “It looked like it had been dumped that morning. We were out running just after 7 a.m.,” Swaine told KTW. Swaine said she thought it was wasteful and irresponsible for the pile to be left there and was worried it would attract bears to the area. She reported the pile of red flesh to City of Kamloops bylaw enforcement and later to Fisheries and Oceans Canada, which is in charge of salmon and other marine fish. The dumped fish might just be the first of many this year, according to Barry Zunti, a fishery officer with Fisheries and Oceans Canada who oversees the Southern Interior. “Unfortunately, on years like this, one of the things we do encounter, unfortunately, is that sometimes This pile of salmon was discovered and photographed by Vera Swaine just off the Trans-Canada Highway at Sugarloaf Road and Lac Le Jeune Road on the morning of Aug. 26.

people go out ... and poach or illegally harvest salmon,” he said. Millions of sockeye salmon are expected to return to spawn on the Adams River in October as part of the dominant year of a four-year cycle. Zunti said illegal fish sales, often operating out of the backs of vehicles, are a common occurrence in years when the salmon surge. Zunti said the practise is illegal without a vendor’s licence, punishable by a maximum fine of $100,000. He said it’s also illegal to buy fish not caught under the authority of a commercial licence. But another warning Zunti has for the public is about health — some of the fish he has seen destined for sale weren’t up to par, recalling one instance in which fish had been dragged by rope through a pasture before being rinsed off in a creek and put on ice. “If someone came around with a dead cow in the back of a vehicle and cut off some steaks, would you buy them? Same thing with a fish,” he said. To avoid buying illegal catches, Zunti said consumers should ask to see a vendor’s licence or ask under which commercial fishery the fish were caught. He also encouraged people to report any salmon and marine fish-related violations to the department’s Observe, Record, Report line at 1-800-465-4336.

Work resumes after ancestral remains found in Valleyview Work has resumed on Valleyview Drive following the discovery of a human bone. BC Hydro spokeswoman Megan Chadwick said work resumed outside of the immediate vicinity of the ancestral remains that were discovered last month. All work was temporarily

halted to allow assessment by BC Hydro’s archeologist and Tk’emlups te Secwepemc representatives. Crews were excavating when they discovered the bone, prompting work on the project to be stopped under BC Hydro’s heritage obligation. Kamloops RMCP and the BC

Coroners Service confirmed the bone is not of recent origin. Work spans about a kilometre along Valleyview Drive from Rose Hill Road to Russett Wynd. BC Hydro has been working to upgrade electrical equipment and increase power supply to Valleyview and Juniper residents.

Second Avenue work begins Construction began Tuesday on a new sidewalk on Second Avenue in downtown Kamloops. The $100,000 project will include the installation of curb, gutter and sidewalk, as well as asphalt replacement, paving stones and electrical upgrades.

Construction is due to continue through the end of the month, primarily during the work week, but with possible weekend work. The project covers the east side of Second Avenue, between Lansdowne Street and the

Kathy Sinclair has just started. The incumbent city councillor elected in the 2017 byelection is running for her first full term on council. “I’m really passionate about making a difference in our city,” she said. Sinclair said she has learned a lot and has had humbling experiences since being elected. She told KTW when she won her seat — finishing atop the polls in the 21-candidate race for two council seats — that recycling would be her first priority. While it remains a focus, Sinclair said she has a better understanding of the system and the impacts of industrial and commercial recycling, compared to residential. “As a citizen and as a consumer, my own personal passion is recycling and improving that but, when you look at the bigger picture — which we’re well aware of at city hall — we need to start focusing on commercial and industrial,” Sinclair said. “We’re also looking at organics waste

pickup, possibly.” She is proud of council’s unanimous support for affordable-housing projects and said the city has taken positive steps forward in the area of sustainability and building on the Tournament Capital brand. Among Sinclair’s platform priorities is further promoting block parties, festivals, tournaments and events. Sinclair said the city could improve communicating good stories and make more clear what municipalities do and don’t have power over. She noted strides with hiring new communications staff and Sinclair herself is active on social media, responding to resident inquiries and quelling rumours. Sinclair remains executive director of the Kamloops Arts Council and is a member of the Rotary Club of Kamloops. Her campaign slogan is “Vibrant community. Thriving economy. A place for everybody.” Other priorities include creating safe neighbourhoods, engaging citizens, growing tourism, North Shore revitalization, support for small businesses, fiscal

On Sept. 13 at Leon John’s Deli on the North Shore, she is hosting a public conversa-

tion as part of On the Table BC. She wants to hear what would make residents get more involved in the community and what could be done to make the community a better place. Sinclair is online at kathy4kamloops.ca. She can be reached by phone at 250299-1203 and by email at hello@kathy4kamloops.ca.

Economic development and homelessness top Dudy’s issues STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Incumbent city councillor Dieter Dudy would prioritize economic development and homelessness should he be re-elected. Economic development isn’t limited to heavy industry, he said, noting light industry and city’s burgeoning tech industry. “There are a lot of things that Kamloops can offer,” he said. “Those are things I’d like to push ahead.” Dudy, 63, said the issue of homelessness is not one over which the city has control, noting the need to continue to lobby the provincial and federal governments. Dudy said those big-picture issues come while maintaining day-today-operations, such as keeping the budget in line. Dudy said his first four years on council taught him the ins and outs of local government. “It comes over time,” he said. Asked to evaluate city council’s past term, Dudy rated it at 80 per cent. He’s proud of the way the city tackled public engagement around the now-rejected Ajax mine and said council’s strength was a diversity of voices. Votes of 5-4 meant a topic generated discus-

sion, he said. “If we had a lot of 7-1 votes, I’d have concerns over that,” Dudy said, “because are we actually looking at stuff or are we just rubberstamping it?” Council could improve with longer workshops, he said, adding discussing complicated matters in a short time “doesn’t do justice to the topic.” He doesn’t want the city to become a nanny state, which was the accusation levelled by some when council introduced a bylaw banning cosmetic pesticides early in the last term. He defended that decision. “If it’s just you, I’m not going to tell you what to do,” Dudy said. “You want to go smoke your lungs out, you smoke your lungs out. But, when what you do can affect others, I have a concern.” Among his own strengths, Dudy said he puts feelings aside to ask how the community would benefit. He likes to listen and hear both sides. “I give what I considered to be a rea-

In 2011, Dudy was narrowly defeated by Peter Milobar in the mayor’s race. Time commitments and personal issues precluded him from seeking the mayor’s chair in the Oct. 20 election, though

he would not rule out a future run. Dudy volunteers with Farm2Chefs, Community Futures Thompson Country and the Rotary Club of Kamloops. He encouraged people to get out and vote, noting voter turnout in the September 2017 byelection was 21 per cent, while the 2014 general election had a turnout of 33 per cent. “This is the most direct form of democracy that people have available to them,” Dudy said. “Exercise your right.” Dudy can be reached at ddudy@ kamloops.ca.

Liberals deny Conservative push for pipeline probe MIA RABSON

CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The federal Liberals are refusing to let two ministers overseeing the Trans Mountain pipeline appear before a committee of MPs to explain what’s next for the expansion project after a court ruling threw its future in doubt. Liberal MPs on the natural resources committee used their majority Tuesday to quash a Conservative motion that called for six special meetings to probe the pipeline’s prospects and drill into why the government bought the existing pipeline for $4.5 billion, knowing a court decision questioning the approval process was pending. As part of the proposal, Finance Minister Bill Morneau and Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi would have been summoned to explain what’s next for the Trans Mountain expansion project after the Federal Court of Appeal last week overturned project approvals. Conservative natural resources critic Shannon Stubbs said the court ruling was clear that problems with the approval process occurred during consultations with Indigenous communities that took place after the Liberals took office. She said the Liberals have failed to live up to their word that they would do what was needed to get the pipeline built. She called the outcome of Tuesday’s 80-minute meeting “utterly outrageous.’’ “It’s galling the Liberals haven’t yet announced a plan to move forward,’’ she said. Liberal MP Paul Lefebvre, appointed four days ago as Sohi’s

parliamentary secretary, said the government is reviewing the court decision and will come forward “in the near future’’ with its plan. Last Thursday, the Federal Court of Appeal ruled consultation with Indigenous communities was not robust enough for the cabinet approval of the project to be valid. The court also said the National Energy Board didn’t properly consider the impact of an increase in oil tanker traffic off the coast of British Columbia that will result from an expanded pipeline. Minutes after the ruling was released, Kinder Morgan shareholders approved the sale of the existing pipeline and other assets to the federal government for $4.5 billion. The purchase closed on Friday, making the federal government wholly responsible for what happens next. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterated Tuesday the court ruling outlined ways that Indigenous consultation and scientific reviews were not good enough. “The court ruling indicates we still have a little more work to do,’’ he said, while insisting the pipeline is going to eventually be expanded. Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre said now that Canadians own a pipeline they were told they needed to buy in order to ensure it could be expanded, they deserve answers from Morneau and Sohi about their strategy. “We are all shareholders and we want a shareholder meeting,’’ he said. NDP MP Richard Cannings said he wanted a study of the pipeline for very different reasons. The Conservatives want a

plan to move the project forward while the NDP position is that any money that would have gone to the expansion be redirected to clean energy production instead. He said the Conservatives and the Liberals deserve blame for the situation — the Conservatives for having a flawed, approvalat-all costs review process when they were in office, and the Liberals for not fixing the process despite promising to do so. The Liberals added consultations on the project in February 2016, including with Indigenous groups. Cannings said those consultations were undertaken by bureaucrats who didn’t feel they could actually do anything with the requests they heard. Some communities had very manageable concerns, such as relocating the pipeline slightly, he said. The Liberals listened to the communities but didn’t act on anything they heard, he said. The government hasn’t said yet whether it will appeal the decision or take the steps outlined in the decision to try and get approval for the expansion back on the table. The Trans Mountain pipeline carries crude oil and some refined products between Alberta and the B.C. coast. Kinder Morgan applied to build a second pipeline parallel to the first that will triple capacity, and Canada’s hope is that much of that oil would end up in Asian markets. Canada’s heavy reliance on the United States for its oil exports — 99 per cent of oil export go to the U.S. — decreases the price Canada can get for its oil, an amount Trudeau says amounts to a $15-billion loss each year.

Brief court appearance for 16 year old charged in shooting of German tourist CANADIAN PRESS

COCHRANE, Alta. — The case of a 16-year-old charged in a southern Alberta highway shooting that left a German tourist with serious injuries has been delayed for a week. The teen appeared in Cochrane provincial court via a video link and was granted a week's delay while he tries to secure a lawyer. The youth, who is from the nearby Stoney Nakoda First Nation west of Calgary, can't be named because of his age. He is facing 14 charges, including attempted murder and possession of a prohibited firearm. The 60-year-old tourist was driv-

ing in a black Dodge Durango with his family near Morley, Alta., on Aug. 2, when the shooting happened. Police have said the suspect vehicle was passing the Durango when a shot was fired from the passenger window and into the tourist's SUV. The Durango crashed into the ditch after the shooting near the Goodstoney Rodeo Centre on Stoney Nakoda land. Three family members who were passengers weren't seriously injured. The driver survived but was flown back to Germany where surgeons removed the bullet which will be sent to RCMP for forensic analysis. He can't talk or move his right side as a result of the injury.

Arrest made in Cora kidnapping CANADIAN PRESS

LAVAL, Que. — Quebec provincial police say they have arrested a man wanted in connection with the alleged kidnapping of the president of the Cora Group breakfast chain. Police say an arrest warrant for Paul Zaidan was executed early today related to the disappearance of Nicholas Tsouflidis in March 2017. Tsouflidis was kidnapped at gunpoint from his Mirabel home, north of Montreal, and a passerby found the bound businessman alive in a ditch in Laval several hours later.

Police spokesman Stephane Tremblay said there could be more arrests in the coming days or weeks following an investigation that spanned several months. Police have said previously their probe demonstrated Tsouflidis was nabbed in an effort to obtain a ransom and that the incident was not linked in any way to organized crime. Zaidan could appear in court this week on charges including kidnapping and unlawful confinement. Tsouflidis is the youngest son of Cora Mussely Tsouflidou, who founded the Cora chain.

Court battle over ‘Grabher’ personal licence plate put off until April 2019 CANADIAN PRESS

HALIFAX — A court hearing for a retiree who is battling the Nova Scotia government over its suggestion that a licence plate bearing his family name supports sexual violence against women has been put off until next year. Lorne Grabher has been trying to reinstate his personalized licence plate since it was revoked in 2016 by the Registrar

of Motor Vehicles following an anonymous complaint. Grabher’s lawyer, Jay Cameron, said in a news release today hearings scheduled for this week have been postponed until April 23 next year, due to a judge granting him additional time to review evidence from a Crown witness. Earlier this year, Cameron had fought to strike a Crown report linking the plate, which reads “GRABHER,’’ to deroga-

tory comments about women made by U.S. President Donald Trump. A judge partially granted Grabher’s request to strike the report, saying the opinion expressed would need to undergo major revisions before it could be admissible in court. Grabher first purchased the plate as a gift for his late father around 1990 and he says it expressed family pride in their Austrian-German heritage.

When acting as an executor of an estate or on behalf of someone who isn’t capable, it’s important to have a proper power of attorney drawn up with a lawyer/ notary. If you’re dealing with a piece of property, it is even more important to make sure that power of attorney is registered with Land Titles. Transfer of ownership cannot occur without doing this and not doing it ahead of time can cause delays and extra stress at closing.

Obsidian, a naturally occurring volcanic glass, was highly valued by people living in the southern Interior in years past. Even today, mineral enthusiasts value obsidian for its aesthetic qualities. When manufactured into stone tools, the edges are razor sharp (obsidian blades are still used in certain surgical applications because they are much sharper than surgical steel). Obsidian tools are rare in archological sites in the Kamloops region. When they are found, they are usually heavily re-used and resharpened, having been well cared for by their owners.

Kamloops artist Emily Dundas Oke, who is in Vancouver interning at the Contemporary Art Gallery, and Melbourne University arts lecturer Marnie Badham collaborated on a research project, dubbed EmpowerHER: A women’s map to the city, that blends art and research. The project was supported by

the United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo and Thompson Rivers University. Badham and Dundas Oke hosted 10 workshops earlier this year, asking local women to reflect on their experiences in Kamloops. Those women — including TRU students, First Nations residents and the homeless — pinpointed on a city map where they felt safe, where they felt unsafe, where to find important community services and where to find beauty. Those maps were eventually combined to create a resource for women. “Say if your sister or mom was coming to Kamloops,” Dundas Oke explained. “Where would you tell them to go? Where would you tell them to not go?” Travers, who has experienced homelessness and volunteers in the community at places like

JUMP Kamloops — a non-profit group that runs a drop-in centre on the North Shore — was the selfdescribed “ice breaker,” helping the artists connect with certain populations of women. Travers noted areas in which women don’t feel safe in Kamloops include McArthur Island, certain parks, under bridges and along river banks. She added the “funniest” place noted by one woman was across from Riverside Park, where foul words were apparently heard from the mouths of drunks. “It was actually the men coming out of the Shark Club,” Travers said. She also noted women tended to feel safe in places near to where they live. One perhaps surprising outcome was that a number of community services that were identified as being important were also

AND COUNTRY CLUB

places where women identified as feeling unsafe. “Women have had maybe not positive experiences and aren’t likely to go back,” Dundas Oke said. To that end, interest has built in sharing the results with organizations in the city and Dundas Oke said people have already began to acknowledge the issue. The nature of communityengaged research, however, is that the artists don’t control the outcome. The shape of the project is instead guided by the community. “I’m happy to see the direction it grows,” Dundas Oke said. Learn more about the project online at empowerhermap.com. A map of existing emergency and crisis services, as well as other community resources used by women in the city, can be found on that website.

These 12 steps are simple, clear and effective

T

oday’s column addresses something one often finds when asking for help: the 12 steps. In my experience, 12-step programs are frequently misunderstood. As with anything significant (think the Bible), personal interpretations are often involved. Many mistakenly believe 12-step programs to be religious bastions for Christian reform, which is not true. Granted, some parts of Alcoholics Anonymous are based upon Christian tenets,

but others arise from academic works of distinguished scholars, such as Carl Jung. Twelve steps are not fundamentalist, Biblethumping programs. Rather, they are spiritual in nature. I often hear in the rooms that religious people fear hell, while spiritual people have already been there and back. I rely on the old adage — ignorance is contempt prior to investigation. Many discredit the program before fully understanding or working through the 12 steps themselves. People who criticize Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics

ASK AN ADDICT Welcome to Ask an Addict, a column penned by a Kamloops scholar with expertise in addiction issues and someone who is also an addict. The column is meant to inform and help, which is particularly important as we remain mired in an opioid crisis that continues to claim thousands of lives each year. If you have a question you would like answered, email it to editor@kamloops thisweek.com. Anonymity is guaranteed. Anonymous on the basis of “god” are often misguided by addicted thinking, unfounded fears or uninformed, false narratives and beliefs. However, some universal truths about the 12 steps exist, one

being, it is not a cult. It is a come as you are, free, universal program. It is accessible to all, with no strings attached. The 12 steps arise from the Big Book, a manual of sorts, a bible of recovery that has

been translated into 69 languages, including Hebrew, Farsi, Zulu, Punjabi and Hindi. Time Magazine deemed it one of the 100 most influential, best-selling books of all time. In 2012, the U.S. Library of Congress designated it as one of the 88 books that helped shape America. One thing recovery teaches me is how to challenge my hidden assumptions and unconscious beliefs. For almost every possible consideration under the sun, I can find a how-to instruction/manual of sorts: how to drive a car, how to fix a computer, how to boil an egg.

When it comes down to the most important thing ever done in life (living), I can find nothing better than the Big Book of AA. In this, I agree with Dr. Abraham J. Twerski, an esteemed American Hasidic rabbi, a substanceabuse psychiatrist and prolific author of more than 60 books. He contends the 12 steps are a process of value to even non-addicts. He says everyone could benefit from working the free, wonderful program of recovery. The 12 steps are simple and clear. They provide an outline on how to live life.

The steps lead me to an exquisite, meaningfilled existence. I am brought back to me, home to myself. I once thought the only problem I had was my drinking. Then I thought it was only distorted thinking. Now I know I have a spiritual malady. By working through the steps, I can finally stop drinking and using and challenge my destructive thoughts and unfounded beliefs. Then — and only then — as a result of working the steps am I able to access that mystical, magical profound power, which intuitively guides and lies inside every man, woman and child.

TRU school year begins amid hammers, nails CREWS WORKING ON THE REACH AND UPGRADING THE OLD MAIN BUILDING MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Hard hats and safety vests will be a common sight at Thompson Rivers University this school year as multiple construction projects continue. Classrooms on the second floor of the Old Main Building remain under construction, but rooms renovated on the first floor are expected to re-open this week. Portables have been set up behind Old Main to accommodate the classrooms that are still out of service, TRU’s vice-president of administration and finance, Matt Milovick, told KTW. “We’re completely modernizing, overhauling the majority of our classroom stock in Old Main,” he said of the $5-million project the university announced in May. On Tuesday, workers in the east wing of the campus’ oldest building could be found putting the finishing touches on the first-floor rooms, while the clanging of ongoing construction could be heard from behind a partition on one side of the second-floor wing. The renovated rooms come with new whiteboards, seating and glassalcove entrances. Each classroom will also boast improved lighting, additional electrical outlets and better soundproofing, as well as new flooring and a fresh coat of paint. “Based on what it was before to what it is now, it’s going to blow people’s minds,” Milovick said. Two additional classes are also being created and washrooms, corridors and some support spaces are also undergoing upgrades. The portables will be in use for the majority of the 2018-2019 school year as the four-phase project isn’t expected to be finished until March of next year. Milovick said there will be limited access to the second-floor classrooms. “It may be that we close off one part of it for half a term, then open it when it’s ready. I’m not exactly sure of the phasing, but I know it’s not going to be entirely closed all the time,” he said. Other major construction on campus includes two new housing projects — Creston House, a four-

storey, 50-unit condominium building, and the Kelson Group’s four-storey rental apartment building — the foundations for which are beginning to take shape in the former parking lot between Old Main and the International Building. Though the bulk of construction on these housing projects is yet to come, Milovick doesn’t anticipate much interaction between students and the projects. “We’ve got signage. We’ve got security fencing around that development. It’s pretty self-contained,” he said. “From our perspective, it’s business as usual and, obviously, we’re committed to keeping a safe environment as are the two different firms building back there.” Excavation for the new nursing building along College Drive is also underway, Milovick said. The street has been shut down, likely to never again re-open to vehicular traffic. “As we start to think about our public realm on campus, our campus master plan calls for that to be a pedestrian way with service vehicle access,” he said. While construction remains ongoing for many projects, work on the new trades building and roadwork on the University Drive traffic circle near McGill Road have both wrapped up. “We have just received occupancy for our new industrial technology and training centre, so that building is open and will be serving students in the fall. It’s about a 58,000-square-foot project,” he said. In June, TRU took control of Upper College Heights across Summit Drive and Milovick said the university wants to add more rooms to the studenthousing building next spring. “We’re also exploring the possibility of developing the two-and-a-half acres that currently sit on that site empty,” he said, noting the university is still in the planning stage and no commitments have been made yet. “We’ve done a lot of work here in the last 12 months and we’ve torn up the campus pretty well, but the disruption to students should be pretty minimal in terms of the driveability and walkability of the campus,” he said.

Union, Gateway back at bargaining table MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

The BC Government Employees’ Union and Gateway Casinos are scheduled to meet this week, according to BCGEU spokeswoman Erin Sikora. The renewed talks will be the first since negotiations broke off in late July between the company and the union, which represents about 675

employees at casinos in Kamloops, Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon. Unionized employees at all four casinos, including some 200 workers at Cascades Casino in Kamloops, have been on strike since June 29. Workers have walked the picket line for the past nine weeks in rotating shifts outside the local casino, the parking lot of which has sported few vehicles. Gateway has not commented on the state of business at the Aberdeen

casino. Some customers have been seen crossing the picket line over the last two months and Chances Gaming Centre on the North Shore has reportedly seen an uptick in visitors. The last contract expired on Sept. 30, 2017. The union and the company have been far apart on wages — the main stumbling block in negotiations to date. The BCGEU has indicated it is

asking for wage increases that average about 62 per cent for its largely minimum wage-earning workforce, while Gateway has offered pay increases that range between 2.4 per cent and 13 per cent in the first year of the collective agreement, in addition to two per cent each year after that. The renewed talks come a couple of weeks after union members marched outside B.C. Lottery Corporation headquarters in

Kamloops, demanding the regulatory body investigate Gateway for alleged discrepancies in policy compliance by management during the strike. The BCLC has said it is reviewing the allegations. Gateway spokeswoman Tanya Gabara refused to comment to the media regarding the upcoming negotiations. Updates on this story will be available online at kamloopsthisweek. com as they occur.

Additional money for low-income, elderly renters Low-income families and seniors in British Columbia who are paying rent in the private market will receive additional help from the province. The province is expanding the eligibility requirements and increasing the benefits under the rental-assistance program and shelter aid for elderly renters. Effective Sept. 1, as a result of increased rent ceilings around the province, more lowincome families and seniors will be eligible for additional assistance to help with their monthly payments in the private market. The average monthly payment for elderly recipients will increase by approximately $78, or 42 per cent, to $265 from $187. Low-income families will also benefit

from higher rental-assistance benefits. Under B.C.’s Rental Assistance Program, the maximum gross household income to qualify for benefits is being raised to $40,000 from $35,000. The average monthly subsidy for recipients is increasing by approximately $67, or 17 per cent, to $472 from $405. “Many seniors are struggling to pay their bills and some are even forced to choose between paying for medications or paying rent,” said Anne Kang, parliamentary secretary for seniors. “These are decisions no one should have to make and our government is working to make sure life is affordable for seniors, so they can stay in their homes and communities.”

Added seniors’ advocate Isobel Mackenzie: “Seniors have been asking for increases for a long time and these changes will be very welcomed by the 23,000 seniors in B.C. who receive shelter aid for elderly renters.” Kara-Leigh Bloch, executive director of the Seniors Services Society, said many seniors her group works with are having a tough time making ends meet. “The increase to subsidies is great news for seniors on a fixed income across the province who have been struggling to pay their rent.” The province is providing $116 million over three years to expand eligibility and increase the average benefits under the rental

assistance program and shelter aid for elderly renters. The rental assistance programs reimburse part of the difference between 30 per cent of income and the household rent (up to maximum rent ceilings). The rental-assistance program provides eligible working families earning up to $40,000 a year with direct assistance to help them meet monthly rent payments in the private market. Approximately 9,250 families receive assistance. Shelter aid for elderly renters provides direct cash assistance to eligible residents, who are ages 60 years or older, to help them in meeting their monthly rent payment in the private market.

Power of Success Recently, my wife, Erin, and I attended “The Power of Success” conference in Vancouver with in excess of 4,000 attendees. The main draw was a four-hour session with Tony Robbins, one of the world’s most renowned speakers on self-improvement. Tony is among one of the most high-energy people I have met. He keeps the room lively, engaged and often on their feet. Tony feels that the best way to learn is when our physiological state is elevated. Here are some of our key takeaways: Activate - listeners retain 10% of material, note takers 40% and active participation closer to 90%. This is true in business, sport, and relationships with friends and family. Low energy provides low results. During the seminar, we were routinely interacting, shaking hands with strangers and even bouncing around. Tony also said standing tall elicits a positive chemical reaction, improves body language and confidence. A cultural shift has occurred. We live in a world with more negativity and social media is reinforcing this. Many people are playing negative thoughts over and over in their head like a bad movie. Among

Tony’s most profound examples, he showed a picture of the late Robin Williams who took his life despite being among the most successful entertainers in the world and having countless riches, including a loving family. Sadly, no amount of “achievement” brought Robin lasting happiness. Achievement isn’t lasting whereas fulfillment can be. Take responsibility – only you can change and control your thoughts and actions. There are three keys to helping you achieve change: 1 - Strategy –A lot of people spend too much time researching instead of doing. Tony suggested that this is the least important of the three and called this the tyranny of how. He referenced that 70% of North Americans are overweight and the majority of these individuals know what they need to do… eat better and increase physical activity- they just aren’t doing it. Tony acknowledges that you need a strategy. Lastly, complexity is the enemy of execution – keep it simple or you won’t stick to it. 2 - Story – People need to tell themselves a story so they BELIEVE they will succeed. Surrounding yourself with others who are successful is a great way to model. On a personal note, when I decided to do an Ironman triathlon, I sought a coach and trained with accomplished triathletes. My six-month journey included successes, setbacks and doubts. I would never have achieved the level of success without them. I was proud to finish top 5% that day!

TD Wealth Private Investment Advice

3 - State – Tony said this was the most important of the three. A lot of people are stuck and need a shift in the right direction. Some examples where people could be stuck: sleep deprivation, financial strain, toxic relationship, negative work environment, poor health, etc. Often, people will feel that their situation will never end. As one begins to adjust, you can expect to drift back to your old frame of mind but you must modify quickly. One trick I read about is having an elastic band on your wrist and every time you have a negative thought- snap your wrist. Tony stated that the mind can only occupy one thought or emotion at a time. He indicated gratitude is among the most powerful in replacing negative thoughts. Tony encouraged people to take 90 seconds, breathe and replace destructive thoughts with a previous success or gratefulness. A lot of professional athletes use visualization before game day. It is ok to have “crazy thoughts” we just don’t have to act on them. In summary, we are better off to focus on fulfillment for lasting happiness. Since we can never get time back, studying successful people speeds up learning. People need to work on emotional fitness just like physical fitness. Tony finished by reminding us that our mind is here to serve our heart and soul! The event was a good reminder that Investing Well is not as important as Living Well. Until next time…Invest Well. Live Well.

SHARPENING THE SCIENCE OF SKATES DALE BASS

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There is a scientist at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont., who is studying a sharp idea — how to create the perfect edge on skates. Kelly Lockwood, a professor of kinesiology and biomechanics, has been studying how skate blades interact with ice. The study is the first of its kind in Canada and the goal is to focus on how important the blades are to hockey performance. The work she has done along-

side longtime NHL skate sharpener Bob Allen has led to creation of Maximum Edge — and a franchise of the business of sharpening figure and hockey skates in Kamloops. Dan Maloney, his son and his daughter each play hockey and their love of it led Maloney to investigate the science behind sharpening, something Lockwood has boiled down to four issues to be considered. Working with the university’s varsity hockey team, she and her team analyzed each skate and found two-thirds of them were uneven for the person wearing

them. That meant their bodies were trying to compensate for the fact their blades weren’t stroke the ice to fit their body weights. The team looked at four aspects of a blade: • The contour, or curve, which is the part of the blade that makes contact with the ice; • The apex, or centre, of the contour, which has to be in the right location or it can cause the skater to be off-balance; • The radius of the hollow, or groove, between each blade’s edge; • The levelness of each side of the blade.

ward needs more blade-ice contact. After adjusting the Brock hockey team’s blades, the first practice led to the team captain telling Lockwood all the players felt their blades were “1,000 per cent better.” Maloney is now working out of his Kamloops home, spending as much time educating his customers about the need to create a skater profile to ensure the sharpening meets each individual as he is doing the work itself. He is hoping to set up shop on McArthur Island or find a location on the North Shore near it.

“There’s absolutely an art to sharpening blades,” Maloney said. The goal is to maximize bladeice contact to distribute body weight properly on the blades. Lockwood explains the importance of profiling the player with the example of a 225-pound hockey player. If the hollow radius is too deep, the player’s skates start to sink into the ice and the player’s body has to work harder. Bigger players require flatter blade grinds. A defenceman needs to be agile and make quick turns, which requires less blade contact on the ice, while a for-

Blazers split weekend games KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The Kamloops Blazers dropped a 4-2 decision to the visiting Victoria Royals on Saturday night, evening their Western Hockey League pre-season record at 1-1. The loss in the evenly played game followed Kamloops’ dominating 5-0 win at home on Friday night over the Prince George Cougars. Against Victoria, Nolan Kneen and Josh Pillar scored, with Pillar and Kyrell Sopotyk notching assists. Victoria led 3-2 late in the third and iced the victory with D-Jay Jerome’s empty-net marker with 58 seconds left in the final frame. Kamloops outshot Victoria 36-30, which brings the Blazers’ two-game shots-on-goal total to a busy 76. The Blazers went with Max Palaga (32 minutes in net, stopping 15 of 18 shots) and Dylan Garand (28 minutes in net, turning aside all 11 shots) in the crease. The Royals countered with Joel Grzybowski and Keegan Maddocks.

Kamloops was 1-for-3 on the power play, compared to Victoria’s 0-for-4 stat line. Saturday night’s game attracted 930 fans, slightly down from the 990 who watched Friday’s win over Prince George. In that victory, top draft pick and local boy Logan Stankoven scored in his first game as a Kamloops Blazer. Stankoven, who was drafted fifth overall by Kamloops in the May WHL Bantam Draft, scored in the second period to put the Blazers up 2-0, with assists going to Martin Lang and Sean Strange. Stankoven also assisted on Lang’s goal in the third. Rounding out the scoring for Kamloops were Orrin Centazzo, Carson Denomie and Brodi Stuart. Montana Onyebuchi had two assists, while Stuart, Jermaine Loewen and Trevor Thurston added helpers. Backstopping the Blazers to a shutout win before 990 fans were goalies Dylan Ferguson (stopping 13 shots in 31 minutes of play) and Rayce Ramsay (saving 11 shots in 29 minutes in the crease). Kamloops outshot Prince George 40 to

24, with the Blazers going 1-for-5 on the power play and the Cougars clocking in at 0-for-5 with the man advantage. Each team amassed 14 penalty minutes. Prince George goaltender Tyler Brennan stopped Blazer Daylan Kuefler on a penalty shot late in the first period. OVERTIME — The Blazers have three pre-season games remaining: at home to Kelowna this Friday, in Kelowna this Saturday and in Prince George on Saturday, Sept. 15. All games start at 7 p.m. ... Kamloops will open the regular season at home to Kelowna on Friday, Sept. 21, with faceoff set for 7 p.m. ... The Blazers have signed 17-year-old forward Jerzy Orchard to a standard WHL education agreement. Orchard is from Delisle, Sask., and was selected by the Blazers in the fifth round of the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft. The 5-foot-10 forward who shoots left spent last season with the Swift Current Legionnaires of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League, where he played 25 games and collected 12 goals, 15 assists and 27 points.

POKOTILLO UKRAINIAN DANCERS 2017

Students are heading back to class this week and Kamloops Mounties want to share the following information with readers: • Motorists should watch for pedestrians. Slow down, drive carefully and watch for both pedestrians and cyclists. At the beginning of the school year, children are especially excited and may dart out onto the road; • Motorists need to pay particular attention to stopped school buses during the year; • Children often have a hard time understanding traffic can come from several different directions at intersections. A child needs to be shown — not just told — how to cross a road safely. Do it together and teach them about the

importance of road safety; • Parents should remind their children that if waiting for a bus or walking to school, to never get in a car with a stranger, even if they offer a ride or ask for their help; • Schools often have very specific dropoff procedures for the school year. Parents should know these procedures for the safety of all kids. Stopping your vehicle in the travelled portion of the road to let your child get out is not safe or legal; • While bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as vehicles, remember that children riding bikes can be especially hard to see. In addition, they don’t always follow the rules of the road, so motorists need to be alert near schools; Kamloops RCMP officers will be patrolling school zones in the upcoming months.

Check out these resources Here are some resources to help ease the transition and get your kids ready for the classroom. All students from kindergarten to Grade 9 are part of a new curriculum that provides a hands-on learning approach that encourages collaboration, critical thinking and communication. This year, the new curriculum will be in place for Grade 10. Grades 11 and 12 will be added next year. More information is online at curriculum.gov.bc.ca. Families on income and disability assistance can get help with back to school costs such as school supplies and clothing. Find out more about the school start-up supplement online at http://ow.ly/

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Lorraine Marguerite Archibald

Lloyd Whittaker October 10, 1938 – August 24, 2018

August 30, 1931 – August 20, 2018 (when a bell rings an angel gets its wings)

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Lloyd Whittaker announces his passing on Friday, August 24, 2018 at the age of 79 years old.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lorraine Archibald. She peacefully passed away in the presence of her loving family on August 20, 2018 in Kamloops, BC at the age of 86.

Lloyd will be lovingly remembered by his daughter Jo-Anne (Bob) Wispinski of Edmonton, his son Raymond Whittaker of Victoria as well as his six grandchildren Seth and Jacqueline of Victoria, Robyn and Jordan of Edmonton and Carli and Morgan of Victoria. Lloyd will also be fondly remembered by his sisters Eleanor (Mel) Mehrer and Laureen McGill, as well as his brothers Bob Whittaker, George Whittaker and Bill Whittaker. Lloyd is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Lloyd was predeceased by his wife and the love of his life, Jo-Anne Whittaker, to whom he shared 54 wonderful years. He was also predeceased by his parents Robert and Eleanor Maude Whittaker, his brother Jack Whittaker and his grandson Braden Whittaker. Lloyd was a proud and highly regarded member of the RCMP. He was a respected officer both during his years of service and retirement. Lloyd was an extremely kind and stand up individual who had a huge heart that impacted many people. Lloyd adored his family and he leaves behind many lifelong friends. In lieu of flowers, the family graciously asks for donations to be sent to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the RCMP Foundation (National Remembrance Fund).

Lorraine is survived by her loving husband of 57 years Leigh, daughter Jackie (Brian) of Kamloops, BC, granddaughters Shauna (Cory) of Kamloops, BC Lorraine had the ability to light up a room with and Amanda of Victoria, BC, great-grandchildren her smile. She loved unconditionally and spent a lifetime building memories with everyone she knew. Layne, Connor and Henley of Kamloops, BC. She also leaves to mourn, her brother-in-law Hugh She now rests with the angels and we know that of Kelowna, her niece Sharon of Edmonton and her wings are protecting each and everyone of us. nephews Joel (Kelly) of Teulon and Dean (Susan) of Until we meet again mom we will be watching for Saskatoon and many friends that Lorraine has made the hummingbirds. throughout her life. Lorraine was predeceased by her parents John A. and Hazel Campbell, her brothers Les (Kay) and Lionel (Faye) and sister Vivian (Elmer), sister-in-law Marg and niece Sandi.

Muriel Buchner (née Duffey) January 21, 1937 - August 3, 2018 It is with the deepest regret the Buchners announce the passing of our beloved Mother and Nana Muriel Buchner (née Duffey) on August 3, 2018 in Kamloops, British Columbia. Muriel Duffey was born on January 21, 1937 to Wilfred and Martha Duffey in Otjiwarongo, Namibia. She is survived by her five children Ruth, Naomi, Jonathan, David and Christopher, grandchildren from Ruth: Rachelle, Justin, Robyn and Max, from Jonathan and Blanche: Brittny, Courtney, Nathan and Joshua, from Jonathan and Marianna: Alexander, Aiden and Anthony, great-grandchild from Brittny and Tanner Wilson: Brooklyn, and greatgrandchildren from Courtney and Mark Wilson: Tucker and Hurley. Of her five brothers and five sisters, she is survived by brother Clifford Duffey of SA as well as her much loved sisters-in-law Renska, Abeth, Christolene, Dorothy, Yvonne, Dawn, Angela and brother-in-law Chris and many dear nieces and nephews. Loved ones recall her remarkable stories of joyously singing with her brothers, many untamed African adventures and hardships endured due to World War II. A young, stylish professional woman working as a clerk for the Standard Bank Witwatersrand, Muriel attended Bible College. She then progressed from a star in sales and later as an executive assistant. These years mother Muriel - and husband John - lovingly raised their five children. Despite promising rewards for her diligent work, she embraced an opportunity to leave her beloved homeland and family to seek new opportunities in Canada. Muriel loved the vast beauty of Canada with the understated kindness and generosity of its people. Ever humble, Mrs. Buchner strove for improvement. She disliked her accent refusing to believe Canadians admired it. Muriel worked hard to become and feel Canadian, always dreading being a burden to others. Hard work began upon arrival managing condominiums in a rough area of Quesnel, 1977-79. The local RCMP thanked her for helping change the “neighbourhood” for the better. She rose to many challenges until finding fulfilling reception work at the Langley medical clinic of Doctors Gubbins, Coulter and Natoress from 1980 to 1984, while successfully running an award winning Coppercraft Canada home based business.

The family would also like to express heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the nurses and Dr’s of 5 South at RIH who went above and beyond in their care of mom. Special thanks also to Dr. Cribb and Dianne for their support and care.

Lorraine was born in Teulon, Manitoba on August There will be a Celebration of Life which will be 30, 1931. Her early years were spent growing up held in the Grande Hall at The Hamlets in Westsyde, 3255 Overlander Drive, Kamloops, BC on Saturday, in Teulon. September 8, 2018 at 2:00 pm.

We finally ended up in Kamloops in 1972 where Lorraine was able to set up permanent roots and make lifelong friendships.

Lorraine always kept herself very busy. She was always cooking, baking and cleaning and lending a hand to whomever needed it. She loved to play cards and played a mean game of canasta and skipbo. She also loved to go to bingo and enjoyed the odd trip to the casino.

General Manager

My wife and I have had the honour of serving the Kamloops area for the last 5 years. We moved from the Fraser Valley and I assumed the role of General Manager of Schoening’s, First Memorial and Merritt Funeral Chapel. We support Western Canada Theatre, Kamloops Symphony, and The Art Gallery. We are proud members of the Paddlewheelers Lions Club as well as the miniature train at the wildlife park. I enjoy slo-pitch, hockey, curling and giving back to the community.

Kamloopsians remember Mrs. Buchner as the gracious, kind hearted and ever smiling lady who worked closely with her beloved son at Jonathan Buchner Gems and Jewellery, from 1992 to present. Her flair for fashion, amicable greetings, personability, kind disposition and intuitive conversations made many a shopper and traveler feel welcome. Her beautiful presence in the jewellery world will be sorely missed. Aside from her family, Muriel’s great love was “her music”. It fed her soul. Her dedicated membership in the Kamloops Choristers (2001 to 2016), echoed church choirs she graced over the decades since childhood. Singing ‘“her heart out” with the Choristers at Carnegie Hall in NYC in 2006 to a standing ovation was a tremendous joy. Muriel supported many charities in Kamloops and abroad but took particular pride in being a long standing supporter of the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra. Our world has lost a guileless, humble spirit whose motto was to live one day at a time in service of others and to love our Lord God without reservation or expectation. This obituary would have her saying not to make a fuss and to go about doing what one can for others. The angels and ancestors are singing, graced to have you home mother, grandmother, sister and auntie.

May Shaw (née Stannard)

Leighton George Budd It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Leighton George Budd of Kamloops, on August 29, 2018, at 91 years of age. Leighton is survived by his children Sonya Budd of Salmon Arm, BC, Barbara Budd of Langley, BC, and Lisa Budd of Richmond, BC, grandchildren Karra Farch, Riley Budd and Bridgette Budd, as well as great-grandchild Dylan Thomson. Leighton was predeceased by Brian Budd and Bertha Budd. Leighton was born in Moncton, New Brunswick, and lived a long and interesting life. He served his country in World War II as a Merchant Marine for Canada, and saw much action in The Battle of the Atlantic. He married and raised four children with his wife Bertha (née Gale) Budd. Leighton worked at several careers, but loved his milk route best. He was a great musician and orator, who gave much joy to others through his music and poetry. A Memorial Service for Leighton will take place at 2:00 pm on Friday, September 14, 2018, at Holy Family Catholic Church, with Father Fred Weisbeck officiating. Donations in Leighton’s memory, may be made to naturetrust.bc.ca (Land Management), or to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home in Kamloops. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

The sweet and tender feelings Which from true affection flow. Love me now While I am living. Do not wait until I’m gone And then have it chiseled in marble, Sweet words on ice-cold stone. If you have tender thoughts of me, Please tell me now. If you wait until I am sleeping, Never to awaken, There will be death between us, And I won’t hear you then. So, if you love me, even a little bit, Let me know it while I am living So I can treasure it.
