THE GANGS ALL HERE

On Jan. 13, 2017, heavily armed Mounties in military-style garb raided a Kamloops gym then owned by the co-founder of the Red Scorpions gang. At the time, Konaam Shirzad told KTW he had left the gang life and gone straight. His murder eight months later on the street outside his Guerin Creek home set off the explosion of gangland violence that has resulted in an unprecedented number of assaults, kidnappings and murders in Kamloops. In today’s edition of KTW, we document the three groups fighting for control of the city’s drug trade and how the situation led to this bloody state.

Chief of staff: Room for babies at RIH MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Royal Inland Hospital is prepared to handle the influx of expectant mothers from the Williams Lake area, according to the facility’s chief of staff. A recent shortage of nurses at Cariboo Memorial Hospital in Williams Lake has led to the indefinite closure of that facility’s maternity ward, with patients being diverted to Kamloops to have their babies. It’s anticipated the closure will impact about 30 to 35 expectant mothers from the Cariboo Chilcotin region per month, RIH chief of staff Todd Ring told KTW. “We feel that we can still safely absorb a reasonable volume of those patients that do choose to come here, recognizing that some patients may choose to go elsewhere,” Ring said. On average, about 100 babies are delivered at RIH per month, he said. “Adding a volume to that is certainly going to add some capacity, but it’s not going to tip things to an unsafe situation,” he said. Since the closure of the maternity ward in Williams Lake, six babies from that area have been delivered in Kamloops. Occupancy in the maternity ward at RIH is assessed on a regular basis and additional staff will

be brought in as needed, Ring said, noting additional births will mean family physicians conducting more deliveries. “Our staff, both our nursing as well as our medical staff — physicians, obstetrician and midwives — have been very accepting and willing to pitch in and help out to cover those patients that are being displaced from Cariboo Memorial Hospital,” he said. RIH routinely experiences surges in maternity care and patients should continue to come to the hospital as expected, Ring advised, adding it is a rare occurrence when someone would need to be transferred elsewhere due to capacity issues. “There’s definitely times of the year it gets busier and less busy. That’s part and parcel of maternity care,” he said. On average, the maternity ward in Kamloops sees eight to 12 patients at any one time in various stages of labour and can look after about 16 at once before needing to pursue other options in the hospital, Ring said. RIH head of the midwifery Joanna Norman believes the hospital can manage the additional mothers for the next three months, but believes the situation will become difficult if it lingers into the summer when people start taking vacation. “The maternity team here is already feeling at capacity and over-capacity,” Norman said.

“Absolutely they’re going to do their best and they’re hopefully going to be able to sustain it as long as possible, but they need help, and they need help from Interior Health and they need help from the province.” It appears RIH will be accommodating expectant mothers from the Cariboo-Chilcotin for at least the next three months. According to David Matear, executive director for Interior Health West Hospitals, two of seven nurses in a training program for maternity nurses will graduate and join Cariboo Memorial Hospital in June and the other five at the end of the year. “I think the reality of this situation is it’s going to be continuously re-assessed, ” Ring said. “If there were any other resources that were identified that could support patients to stay within the Cariboo Memorial Hospital, that would be the desirable, so I think we’re still in the wait and see period.” Women at the 38-week mark of pregnancy are advised to travel to a community where they can have timely access in the event they go into labour. It’s a three-hour drive from Williams Lake to Kamloops and Matear said arrangements are being made to cover the costs of travel, lodging and meals for expectant moms. — with files from 100 Mile Free Press

LOCAL NEWS This story in the Dec. 30, 2016, edition of Kamloops This Week detailed the lawsuit filed by a former elementary school teacher against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kamloops.

LOOK FOR OUR GREAT DEALS ON PAGES A12-A13 #105-5170 DALLAS DR., KAMLOOPS | 250-573-1193

Woman suing the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kamloops wants its offices searched KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A former elementary schoolteacher who is suing the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kamloops and a retired priest — alleging sexual abuse at his hands while she taught at Our Lady of Perpetual Help four decades ago — wants offices in Kamloops searched for documents related to her case. As reported by Kamloops This Week in December 2016, Rosemary Anderson originally filed an eight-page notice of claim in B.C. Supreme Court, claiming sexual abuse at the hands of Father Lindo Molon and an apparent coverup by then-Bishop Adam Exner. (KTW does not normally publish names of victims of sexual assault and those alleging they were sexually assaulted, per Canadian Press Style guidelines, but KTW has been authorized to use her name). In the document, Anderson claims to have been vulnerable when she began teaching at the North Shore school in 1976. Her claim describes Molon as her superior at the school. The original claim states she went to Molon for help after the death of her father. “Commencing in or around September 1976 and continuing for approximately eight months, Father Molon — approximately 20 years older than the plaintiff and in a position of superior spiritual, religious, moral and vocational power and/or authority — exploited the plaintiff and repeatedly performed sexual acts upon the plaintiff innumerable times, including intercourse,” the document reads. Anderson claims in the document to have reported the incidents in the spring of 1977 to Adam Exner, the bishop of the Kamloops diocese, after which Molon was transferred to an Ontario parish. The claim also states Anderson was ordered to leave

the Kamloops diocese “by the close of the school year, under threat of slander and/or harassment by the OLPH education committee.” In the document, Anderson claims to have suffered a loss of potential earnings. She is also seeking aggravated damages, punitive damages and special damages. “The defendant, Father Molon, exploited the plaintiff’s vulnerability, religious devotion and obedience to manipulate her into submitting to the sexual assaults,” the claim reads, also accusing Exner of wrongdoing. “The bishop intimidated the plaintiff and demanded that she leave the diocese under threat of slander and harassment by the education committee that governed the plaintiff’s employer, the OLPH elementary school.” In June 2017, Exner responded to the civil claim, denying liability. In a follow-up to the original filing, Anderson filed a notice of application in B.C. Supreme Court on Feb. 27, asking for an order to search offices of the Archdiocese of Kamloops. “She contends that there is a real concern that material documents exist that have not been appropriately searched for, disclosed or explained,” the court documents state. The church has said such documents do not exist. A court date of April 1 has been set to hear the application. Molon is now 86 and living in Ontario. Court documents state he “lacks capacity” and is represented by his litigation guardian, the Ontario Public Guardian and Trustee. On May 16, 2018, his guardian responded to the civil claim, denying liability. The latest filing from Anderson includes information from the Aug. 14, 2018, evidence given by now Archbishop Emeritus Exner. During that questioning, Exner admitted that people

in Kamloops in the mid-1970s came to him with concerns about Molon, but that he never took notes, though he concluded he “had to do something about this man” — whom Exner appointed as assistant co-pastor at OLPH parish in November 1974. Exner said he had no knowledge regarding the absence of records in Molon’s personnel file with respect to events between 1975 and 1976, the period of time during which Exner admitted to receiving reports and investigating Molon’s sexual transgressions. The last letter in Molon’s file from 1975 is dated Feb. 21, 1975. The next letter in his file is dated March 15, 1977. Exner said Anderson came to him to report that a relationship with Molon developed after she went to him for counselling after the death of her father. In his testimony, Exner described Molon as “a playboy and she was not the only one he was taking advantage of. He was taking advantage of quite a few people.” Exner said he heard many rumours of Molon involved in “inappropriate relationships with women,” adding that while he did not speak with the women allegedly involved, he did speak with Molon, who, according to Exner, replied, “I’m human.” Exner did not formally suspect Molon until Oct. 24, 1977. He said he considered defrocking Molon, but “still wanted to leave a door open for possibility of rehabilitation,” conceding that Molon “wasn’t co-operative in any sense” to the offer of rehabilitation. Exner also admitted he was concerned about the effect of the events involving Molon and the parishioners and that it was a scandal. According to court documents, “removing the scandal was a foremost concern.” None of the allegations raised have been proven in court. An Oct. 7 court date has been set for the civil trial.

A young bobcat will go on to live a happy life in the wild after it was struck by a car and rescued by two-legged friends at the BC Wildlife Park in Kamloops. “Hopefully, she’ll go on to breed and produce more little bobcats,” animal care manager Tracy Reynolds said. A nearly one-year-old female bobcat, which has since affectionately been named Gallagher due to the Okanagan location in which it was discovered, was dropped off at the BC Wildlife Park about a week-and-a-half ago. The young feline had been struck by a vehicle and found by a passerby, who contacted conservation officers, who in

turn brought it in for rehabilitation at the park’s Fawcett Family Wildlife Health Centre. A large cut on one of the cat’s back legs was immediately stitched by staff. But the animal still couldn’t walk and its femur was determined the next day to be badly broken. Gallagher had three options: surgery, amputation or euthanasia. Reynolds said it is unlikely the cat would survive with three legs in the wild. “Ultimately, what we want to do is get them better so they can leave here,” she said. A costly specialized surgery that involved a custom titanium plate was required, typically costing in the $5,000 range. A specialty clinic in the Lower Mainland, Boundary Bay Veterinary Specialty Hospital, agreed to conduct

the surgery at a fraction of the cost — about $2,000. The surgery was a success and Gallagher is now on antibiotics at the BC Wildlife Park. It will be a couple of months before the bobcat can be released, but staff are confident in the animal’s success. Reynolds said the cat — the size of a big house cat at its age, but with huge paws and the voice of a mountain lion — has not been habituated. “She’ll be released back in the Gallagher Lake area, where she was found,” Reynolds said. Funding for Gallagher’s surgery comes from general park revenue. The BC Wildlife Park is a non-profit organization that funds its wildlife health centre via park admissions and public donations. Conservation officers and the general public bring

A message to all communities connected to Thompson Rivers University When I joined TRU as President in December 2018, I knew I would be leading a unique Canadian university. Providing value to the communities we serve is a priority, and so we offer wide-ranging programs, warmly welcome learners of all kinds and partner with BC organizations on research that benefits BC residents. In fact, our base of about 24,000 campus and online students represents virtually every town and city in the province. It’s hard to live in BC and not have a connection to TRU! It is why I am now inviting you to help create a new 10-year vision for TRU. TRU’s trajectory from 1970 to 2019 has been purposeful and visionary. What will take us to a new level as a university will be our choices to place collective emphasis on a few areas, priorities whose concerted development over the next 10 years will make powerful impacts for the communities we serve. Our journey to a new vision is going to touch someone you know.

ADD SEATBELTS TO SCHOOL BUSES

S

hould there be seatbelts on school buses? Increasingly, people seem to think they should. And why not? For years we’ve been told seatbelts save lives. There’s plenty of information confirming this. According to Transport Canada, seatbelts worn correctly can reduce the chance death in a collision by 47 per cent and the chance of serious injury by 52 per cent. ICBC stats show that between 2013 and 2017, there were 257 fatalities in which victims weren’t wearing a mandatory safety restraint. ICBC stats also show that in 2017, there were approximately 350,000 motor-vehicle collisions — or 960 collisions each day. All good reasons why seatbelt use in consumer vehicles is mandatory in B.C. and has been since 1977. Last year, federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau initiated an in-depth look at the question of seatbelts in school buses. Around the same time, a 2010 Transport Canada study that was brought to light indicating current safety standards in school buses aren’t enough to help riders in side-impact collisions and rollovers. Seatbelt installation on school buses should be straightforward decision, but there are significant implications to consider. Seatbelts on new buses would add up to $6,500 to the price tag, while retrofitting existing buses would cost about $10,000 per vehicle. Then there’s provincial legislation making bus drivers responsible for assuring all kids are properly buckled in. The Canada Safety Council (CSC) argues seatbelts on school buses may not improve safety. They maintain school buses are already one of the safest methods of transportation due, in part, to their compartmentalization design of seating. That doesn’t mean they can’t be made safer. While costs and concerns relating to the addition of seatbelts on school buses cannot be dismissed, they do not seem insurmountable. — Vernon Morning Star

More food for thought

A

s a civic politician, Donovan Cavers was polarizing. There were those who supported his environment-first platform and those who felt he leaned a bit too far in that direction. Cavers was one of those politicians who would definitely get one’s vote or for damn sure wouldn’t get one’s vote. There really wasn’t room for any position in between those two solitudes. Through his time on council, there were comments, tweets and questionable actions that placed him in the bull’s-eye of many critics. Maybe his decision to run for both a council and school trustee seat in last fall’s civic election was the one step too many for voters. In any event, Cavers failed in his bid for a third term on council, but in a move that couldn’t have been surprising to anybody, the aspiring teacher decided to leave a year-long legacy by using his final council meeting to file 11 notices of motion — one to be introduced in each subsequent month. Regardless of whether the ideas are worthy of consideration (some are, some are not), it appears the nine people elected to city hall in October consider Cavers’ so-called ghost motions unnecessary grandstanding. They have summarily extinguished each and every proposal with about as much discussion as can be found at a mime conference. Cavers’ notices of motion

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS include designated zoning for election signage, 365-day transit and eliminating words like “customers,” “clients” and “corporate mission” in favour of “residents,” “citizens” and “public service mission” in internal city language. In January, Cavers noted his notices of motion were not getting any traction at council and argued, rightly, that each one should be evaluated based on merit and not dismissed automatically. In other words, focus on the words in the proposal, not on the name behind it. The motion that was killed this week was perhaps the best of the bunch, a common sense idea that deserved more than a perfunctory dunk in the ideas trash bin. Cavers’ idea, based on food security and education, was to have council mandate that five per cent of landscape planting beds be edible ornamentals, such as fruit trees, berry bushes, herbs or gourds.

Council as a whole declined to even discuss the idea and it died, which is a shame. As Cavers told KTW before the notice of motion went before council: “Plants provide food. You have a lot of people that could use nutrition. If it’s done well and there’s proper signage so people know when stuff is ripe to take and what not, why not do it? There’s a lot of communities all around North America that are experimenting with food forests. Why can’t we?” Why can’t we, indeed? Seattle does it with its popular Brandon Street Orchard. Asheville, N.C., does it with its George Washington Carver Edible Park. Boston does it with its Boston Tree Party. Sheridan, Wyo., does it with its Thorne Rider Park. All of these cities, and more, have decided to use public and private space to grow stuff people can eat for free, rather than grow things that are simply nice to look at on a sunny day. Pears, zucchini, beets, tomatoes, cucumbers, apricots, raspberries, figs — a lot of stuff is being grown that can feed a lot of people. Kamloops council as a whole likes to proclaim its commitment to sustainability. What’s more sustainable than adding edible plants and trees to the city landscape? Having a current councillor introduce a similar notice of motion would be an appetizing endeavour. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

AN ARGUMENT FOR KEEPING TIME CHANGE

The North Thompson River as seen from the back end of Centennial Park in Westsyde. TALAINE NORTON PHOTO

SAVE THIS SPIRITUAL SANCTUARY Editor: There’s a little piece of heavenly paradise hidden in the golden suburbs of Westsyde that I’d like to reveal to the residents of Kamloops. If you haven’t already, you may one day experience the child-like wonder and joy that every lucky visitor is blessed with upon stepping foot on its hallowed ground. It’s a chunk of earth that must have slipped from the heavens itself because it contains such stunning beauty and tranquility that it could only be painted by God’s own hand. This gem is located in Centennial Park and, once you’ve

parked, you are mere steps from reaching the promised land. Upon entering the sacred arena, you may not even notice that your mind has gone quiet, your body has gone soft and each breath is a dip into a wondrous realm of peace. Unfortunately, this spiritual sanctuary is at grave risk of disappearing. The ever-changing North Thompson River has gone to work, tearing away large chunks of the popular and beatific nature preserve. There is a solution, however, and that is to place riprap along the riverbank. A similar project was done for

private properties from Bermer Place to Settlement Place, but instead of protecting homes for a few individuals, this project would save a unique part of nature for thousands to enjoy. I implore the good folks of our city to not only visit and enjoy this wondrous area, but also show support in saving it. A man who brought his family for photos on the spot spoke to me. His eyes were glazed over with love as he whispered, “That’s God’s country.” Grant Koivula Kamloops

Editor: Is the twice per year time change necessary? Of course it is. Kamloops’ geographical location is almost perfect to benefit from the extra evening hour in summer and the extra morning hour in winter. As we move our clocks forward this weekend, more evening daylight is immediate — and can be used to take advantage of outdoor sports and activities. A stop the time change initiative continues, although it remains a bad idea. Many of us already prepare for the spring forward time change on Saturday night by moving our clocks ahead one hour as early as 8 p.m. Soon after, it’s as simple as putting away the electronics and going to bed. Do not sleep in the next morning and you should be tired enough to retire early that evening. Then, as I address this primarily to day workers and students, you should have little trouble waking at usual time, or even a bit earlier, on Monday. Yes, your body’s systems will need time to adjust, but this will be up to you as a matter of discipline. If you wake up late and head out the door in a matter of minutes, you leave yourself vulnerable to accidents and compromised immunity. The stop the time change gang seems to blame the morning loss of one hour for the (supposed) increase in accidents

by certain commuters. The truth is that most mishaps are preventable with discipline and common-sense. One analogy would be to blame a snow-covered road as the cause of accidents when, in fact, crashes are mainly due to driver inexperience and inattention. If some can adjust to time change, then all should be able to. Eliminating time change “just because” should not be considered. One idea has been mentioned before. This involves moving the clocks ahead a half-hour on the first Sunday in March, then by another half-hour on the first Sunday in April. We would then fall back as usual in early November. Of course, the entire Pacific time zone would have to do this. Finally, to the naïve stop the time change supporters, give us all a break. You cannot compare Kamloops (and most of southern B.C.) to places like Florida, Arizona, Southern California, Saskatchewan or Hudson’s Hope. Kamloops benefits the most from the twice-yearly time change. Let’s maintain the status-quo. Oh, and do get out and enjoy our extended spring, summer and autumn evenings from March 10 through Nov. 2.

As the Trans Mountain pipeline twinning project awaits approval from the federal government, a company representative was at city hall this week, telling Kamloops council work could begin this summer. Trans Mountain senior community liaison Kate Stebbings said the community will see a slow ramp-up of work in the area, which is expected to take about 18 months. With approval, the 1,150-kilometre pipeline will be fully twinned from Edmonton follow us to Burnaby, with 28 kilometres of the pipeline running through Kamloops. The city is also home to Trans Mountain’s Kamloops Terminal, two storage tanks at the west end of town that have a capacity of 160,000 barrels of oil product. The terminal is a hub for local distribution and a receiving point for product from northeastern B.C. “If we receive approval on May 22, we will be beginning construction in summer, late fall in the Kamloops urban area,” Stebbings said. “Doesn’t mean you’re going to see shovels in the ground. Some of the early work, we’ll be doing things like fencing, surveying, line locating, making sure that we’re not going to be hitting anybody else’s utility when we move through things.” Trans Mountain has faced significant hurdles with its pipeline twinning project, including fierce opposition from B.C.’s NDP provincial government, due to potential impacts on marine life and what was considered to be a lack of meaningful consultation with First Nations. However, last month, the National Energy Board endorsed the project following reconsideration of impacts on marine life off B.C.’s coast. The NEB said it will impose 156 conditions should the project be approved from the

Dream Home A co-signer may help you qualify for a mortgage sooner If you’re having difficulty qualifying for a mortgage on your own, finding someone to cosign your application may be your best solution for approval so you can get into your own home faster. Having a co-signer makes the most sense when you simply need a boost to qualify for a mortgage on a home that’s within your means. It’s important not to opt for this solution if it’s going to be tough for you to make the payments. The best co-signer with offer strengths you currently lack when filling out a mortgage application on your own. For instance, if your issue is insufficient credit, you’ll want to bring a co-signer on board who has healthy credit. Or, if your income is preventing you from qualifying, you’ll want to find a co-signer with strong income. Co-signing can take a couple of different forms: • The co-signer becomes a co-borrower. This is similar to having a partner or spouse buy the home alongside a primary applicant. This involves adding the support of another person’s credit history and/or income to the application. The co-signer is placed on title for the home and the lender considers this person equally responsible for the debt if the mortgage goes into default. • The co-signer becomes a guarantor. In this scenario, he/she is backing the loan and vouching that you’ll pay it back on time. The guarantor is responsible for the loan if it goes into default. The most commonly accepted co-signors are parents or close relatives, and it’s possible for more than one person to co-sign a mortgage. A co-signer is likely to be approved when the lender’s satisfied he/she will help lessen the risk associated with loan repayment.

federal government, which owns the project after the federal Liberal government purchased the pipeline last year from Kinder Morgan for $4.5 billion. Asked about further legal hurdles that could delay the project, Stebbings said she would be speculating, but does anticipate continued legal challenges. She called consultations with First Nations of “critical importance” adding she expects some Indigenous communities will continue to oppose the project. In the Kamloops area, Tk’emlups te Secwepemc First Nation has signed a $3-million community-benefits agreement with the pipeline company. Mayor Ken Christian wondered about the route through Kamloops. The approved route follows 73 per cent of the existing pipeline. In Kamloops, deviations occur to bypass Westsyde residences, utilizing an existing Telus rightof-way in the Lac du Bois area above Westsyde, in addition to the east side of Tranquille Road and around Jacko Lake. Asked about the Thompson River, Stebbings said Trans Mountain would not abandon the existing crossing. “This is a twinning project,” Stebbings said. “So, the existing

MOTEL FIRE DEEMED SUSPICIOUS

A fire at a Valleyview motel on Wednesday night has displaced four people and damaged three units. Kamloops firefighters were called to the Tournament Inn at about 8:30 p.m., where they found flames engulfing two units, one of which was unoccupied. Residents in the other unit managed to escape without injuries and firefighters were able to douse the fire. Two units suffered significant smoke, heat and water damage, while a third unit will need repairs to its roof as firefighters had to cut a hole for access in fighting the flames. The blaze, which appears to have started on the outside of the building’s northeast end, is believed to have been human-caused and remains under investigation. According to RCMP, the fire is believed to be suspicious. Anyone who may have seen anything suspicious on Wednesday night at the Tournament Inn, or who has knowledge of the fire, is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000. The Tournament Inn is at 1893 East Trans Canada Hwy. in Valleyview.

Legalized cannabis leads to sharp drop in drug offences TIM PETRUK

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Legal cannabis is the reason Kamloops Mounties reported a gigantic drop in drug investigations in 2018, according to the city’s top cop. A 21 per cent drop in drug offences is among the statistics included in an annual report submitted this week to city council by RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky. “The most significant is the change in legalization of marijuana,” Lecky told reporters on Wednesday. “No longer is that an offence.” Lecky said about 70 per cent of drug calls police received were related to marijuana — ranging from teens smoking in an alley to major busts. Another factor, Lecky said, was the detachment’s decision in 2018 to focus drug investigations on players higher up the food chain, rather than on

street-level dealers and users. “This past year, we were focused on a higher level,” he said. “That’s the reason for the changes.” Lecky’s report to council also noted drops in weapons offences and reported home breakand-enters, vehicle thefts and bike thefts. Increasing in 2018 were reported business breakins and mischief. According to RCMP data, founded crimes (crimes police believe occurred) against persons were up 13 per cent over the previous year, while property crimes and traffic violations were about even, drug offences were down 30 per cent and other Criminal Code offences dropped 13 per cent. While weapons offences were down, Lecky said the types of firearms seized by police is indicative of a troubling trend. “We, as an organization, have very recently obtained carbine rifles. They’re pretty highpowered rifles,” he said. “We’ve

seized a number of those in the past year, and guns with silencers on them. There’s no reason to have a silencer on a gun except shooting people without getting heard.” Lecky said his detachment’s staffing was consistently near 100 per cent during 2018, but he’s still looking for more. The detachment is presently budgeted for 136 officers and Lecky said the number of members working has been above 130 for the last year. “I will never not look for additional resources because you can always do more. It’s always a balancing act,” he said. “We’re pretty close to full capacity. We’ve maintained really good numbers.” Lecky acknowledged the number of serious incidents in 2018 took a toll on his detachment, but he said morale is high. “I can’t take credit for it because I don’t deserve it, but I can tell you the individuals have pulled together,” he said.

City staff will look into rescheduling council meetings JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops council has directed city staff to investigate and report back by the end of June on the feasibility of moving regular council meetings to late afternoons or early evenings. Council meetings are now held Tuesday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. in chamber at city hall. Coun. Dale Bass made the notice of motion, intent on making the city’s decisionmaking process more accessible to the public. “We don’t get a lot of people here because they’re at work,” Bass said. The discussion has come up in the past, with Coun. Denis Walsh suggesting nine years ago one meeting per month be held in the evenings. The idea, however, never made it past the conversation stage. This past Tuesday, council showed more of an appetite to at least learn more about the possibility. Walsh called the idea long overdue after his initial efforts in 2010, noting between 50 and 100 people attend the city’s evening open houses. “If we built it, they will come,” he said. Also in favour of having staff report back

were councillors Sadie Hunter, Arjun Singh, Kathy Sinclair and Bill Sarai. They were not singing the benefits of night meetings, but simply want more information. Singh said beginning of council’s four-year term is a good time to investigate such initiatives. He suggested exploring the impacts of night meetings in communities that host them. “Are more people actually in the gallery? Those are things I’d like to know before I make a decision,” he said. Sarai doubted the public desire for night meetings while raising concerns related to time and space. He said he did not hear a call for night meetings while on the campaign trail last year and noted that if meetings began at 7 p.m., they could wrap up at midnight. Sarai also noted that council chambers are not capable of seating a large number of people. While Sarai voted in favour of having staff report back, he told KTW he does not expect to be voting in favour of night meetings. Coun. Dieter Dudy questioned whether delegates could make it to evening meetings, adding that a councillor’s day starts early and ends late. He said the public expects the best

Cavers’ latest ‘ghost motion’ fails to pass KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kamloops council had no appetite for an edible landscaping idea brought forward by a former city councillor. With no mover or seconder, “it dies on the order paper,” Mayor Ken Christian declared Tuesday. Former councillor Donovan Cavers, who failed his re-election bid in the fall, made 11 notices of motions during his last council meeting, including one that appeared on the agenda this week that would require five per cent of the city’s landscape planting beds be edible ornamentals, such as fruit trees, berry bushes, herbs or gourds. Cavers told KTW no policy requires horticulture staff to include edible plants and cited their appearance and practicality in providing residents food and education about food sustainability. Council did not move the motion nor discuss it, meaning another of Cavers’ so-called “ghost motions” died at city hall.

of councillors. “Quite frankly, I’m at my freshest in the morning,” he said.

Mayor Ken Christian, meanwhile, said the public has ample opportunity to

speak to council “more richly” at town halls, public meetings and open houses.

business reputation. “I think that the Association of Mining Exploration, if we pass this, will see us as a business-unfriendly council,” Singh said. “I think we have to think about that.” Singh sat on a provincial environmental assessment advisory committee last spring and said the city could have an enhanced role via provincial legislation. Also at issue among councillors was Walsh’s wording of “common sense,” which was criticized for being too ambiguous. Council voted 6-3 to defeat the motion, with Mayor Ken Christian and councillors O’Reilly, Singh, Dieter Dudy, Sadie Hunter and Bill Sarai opposed. Councillors Walsh, Kathy Sinclair and Dale Bass voted in favour. Sinclair said given the ease of staking claims in the province, she supports a review, arguing it is healthy to look at regulations for certain industries. Council last year sent a resolution to the Union of B.C. Municipalities to request from the province input on mining projects within 10 kilometres of municipal boundaries and regional districts. That resolution did not pass at the UBCM level.

to determine how to modernize B.C.’s mining laws, including the Mines Act and the Mineral Tenure Act. The idea stems back to the Ajax mine debate, with Walsh’s motion calling for “common sense restrictions on where mineral claims and mining leases are allowed.” Ajax was rejected by senior levels of government, but had the copper and gold project been approved, it would have been located two kilometres from the Aberdeen neighbourhood. “From my point of view, council should have at least some form of input on something that close to your city,” Walsh said. Coun. Mike O’Reilly opposed after speaking to the Mining Association of B.C. He said the province announced last month $20 million over the next three years to improve oversight, management and authorization of mining titles and permits. “I believe the provincial government is working on these things,” O’Reilly said. Coun. Arjun Singh also opposed the motion. While he said the effort comes from a “good place,” he added an unintended consequence would be the city developing an anti-

Fretz said some requests are for information, however residents are also calling to tell the city their garbage was not collected — at which time, the city usually loops back to collect it. “It’s a good and bad thing that we get a lot of calls from people saying you missed my garbage and my recycling,” Fretz told council, when asked about the solid waste requests. “And although I am not standing here telling you our operators are perfect, it’s very, very rare for us to see a garbage and recycling

Service calls to the city were slightly down in 2018, with solid waste accounting for a large chunk of residential requests. In 2018, the city received 16,350 service requests by phone, email and the myKamloops app, compared to 17,700 in 2017. “It goes up and down based on the seasons that we have,” City of Kamloops civic operations director Jen Fretz said. “I think the 2017 numbers were higher because of all the snow that we had.” The most common calls for

‘The worst violence we’ve seen’

KTW investigation reveals Shirzad murder set stage for series of violent events unfolding on Kamloops streets TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

he fraught landscape in the Kamloops underworld that has erupted violently in recent weeks, leaving three men dead and many more injured, can be traced back more than a year to a brazen murder outside a Guerin Creek home. Kamloops This Week spoke with multiple justice and law-enforcement officials — police officers and others — for this story about the violence unfolding on city streets. Most of them were not authorized to speak on the record and KTW has agreed not to name some of them in the interest of informing the community. Prior to the murder of Konaam Shirzad on Sept. 21, 2017, three groups are believed to have essentially controlled the city’s drug trade. One was Shirzad’s crew aligned with the Red Scorpions, the gang he founded a dozen years earlier with four friends. Another was believed to have been an operation helmed by well-known alleged gangster Jason Robertson, an organization

KONAAM SHIRZAD

SHIRZAD MURDER Konaam Shirzad was shot to death outside his Guerin Creek home on Sept. 21, 2017. The 34-year-old was one of the founders of the Red Scorpions gang, the criminal organization behind the infamous Surrey Six slayings. Investigators believe Shirzad was a major player in the Kamloops drug trade prior to his murder. Prosecutors have said recently police have “viable suspects” in the slaying, though no arrests have been made.

ROBERTSON GROUP On May 7, 2014, police raided three Kamloops homes in relation to a lengthy investigation into Jason Robertson, alleged in court to be one of the city’s drug kingpins but not charged with any trafficking crimes. Robertson was sentenced last year to spend 18 months behind bars following his conviction on a number of weapons offences, but he is free on bail pending appeal. At the time of the raids,

ESCALATING TENSIONS Kamloops This Week looks at major events linked to gangs, organized crime and the city’s drug trade going back to 2016

2016 • Emergency crews are called to the Petro-Canada travel centre in west Kamloops after a report of shots fired on Feb. 18. There, they find a man

who was shot in the leg. The suspect flees the scene before police arrived. Police say the victim was not being co-operative with investigators. • Police execute a search warrant at a home in Valleyview — in the 2800-block of Valleyview

Drive — and seize trafficking amounts of cocaine and marijuana on Feb. 25. Nathan Townsend, described by police as someone with gang ties, is charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. • KTW reports on March 3, based on information from an unnamed justice official, that Kamloops could be on the verge of a gang war. The source says

the Red Scorpions, which controlled the local drug trade at the time, are facing mounting pressure from a rival criminal organization. The report is rebuffed by police, who deny any such escalation in tensions between rival gangs.

• A home on Parkcrest Drive near Holt Street is hit by three bullets on April 24. No injuries are reported, but police describe the incident as being related to the city’s drug trade and organized crime. The investigation into the incident leads to the arrest of three alleged Wolf Pack gangsters.

seized items were adorned with Hells Angels support decals. Robertson and his wife, Sarah, had been facing more than 50 serious charges, but the bulk of them were stayed by a judge. Robertson is believed to have been something of an ally to Konaam Shirzad in the Kamloops drug trade. In 2017, a judge ruled Robertson has been involved in the city’s drug trade despite him not being charged with trafficking offences. The ruling came after testimony from an RCMP expert on drug trafficking laid out a web of circumstantial evidence against Robertson.

Kamloops drug trade was in flux. Shirzad had two highranking lieutenants willing

Weeks before Konaam Shirzad was killed, Erwin Dagle was arrested as part of a police raid at a Columbia Street hotel. Dagle had also been implicated months earlier following a bust at his Sun Rivers home. The 24-year-old is believed to have been a high-ranking lieutenant of Shirzad. He pleaded guilty last week to a number of drug charges and was handed a 10-year sentence in federal prison. At the time of his sentencing, federal Crown prosecutor Anthony Varesi described Dagle as a prominent player within the Red Scorpions organized crime group in Kamloops.

to take over the group. One had just been targeted by police in a sizeable drug bust, though, and the other had recently been released from prison. Neither was in a position to assume control. Both men are still trying to assert themselves, KTW has been told. One is Erwin Dagle, believed by sources to be attempting to pull strings from behind bars, where he’s been since December 2017. The 24-year-old was sentenced last week to a decade in prison after press conference, declaring the gang “dismantled” while displaying cash, firearms and drugs seized in a raid.

• Reversing course from their statement in March, police announce on May 31 the arrival of a violent new gang attempting to establish itself in Kamloops’ drug trade. RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says the Wolf Pack — a coalition of gangsters from the Lower Mainland — is known to use violence as a business tactic. Police have, in fact, been investigating the Wolf Pack’s actions in the Tournament Capital for more than six months when the announcement is made. • On June 2, police arrest three members of the Wolf Pack, including Bruce Davis, who is described in court as the leader of the gang’s local faction. RCMP Supt. Brad Mueller holds a

• A 29-year-old man is arrested following a June 25 shooting outside a condo complex near Thompson Rivers University. Prosecutors later allege Derek Muirhead was attempting to beat up an acquaintance when the gun went off. Charges against Muirhead are later stayed. • A specialized Lower Mainland police unit focussing on gangs descends on Kamloops on Aug. 13 for a weekend in what local Mounties call “a proactive measure.” The Uniform Gang Enforcement Team makes eight arrests and checks 130 vehicles and 23 residences. • Police pull over a

Why doesn’t Kamloops have motorcycle gangs? According to a source, lack of visible presence does not mean outlaw bikers are not involved in city’s drug trade TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

For a city its size, Kamloops is an outlier in B.C. when it comes to organized crime. Outlaw motorcycle gangs, the biggest players in the province’s drug trade, do not maintain a visible presence in the city. There is no clubhouse and gang colours are only seen on rare occasions, usually when visitors come from elsewhere. The Lower Mainland, Kelowna, Prince George, Nanaimo and the Fraser Valley all have a visible outlaw biker presence. But not Kamloops. Why? According to one justice official who spoke to KTW, the lack of colours does not necessarily indicate a lack of presence. “They are in control here,” the official said. “We don’t have the sinister things you see in other places that just hangs over everything, but they are in control here.” Each of the three organized crime groups operating in Kamloops prior to the murder of Konaam Shirzad was likely working with the blessing of the Hells Angels in some form, the official said. And blessings are not cheap in the world of outlaw motorcycle gangs. “There’s the big dog and then there are the little dogs,” the source told KTW. “The little dogs yapping at each other, that’s what we have in Kamloops. The big dog doesn’t care because, no matter what happens, it is taken care of. It would take something big for the big dog to get involved here. Someone would have to try to cut them out.” And big-dog involvement would not be opportunistic murders and robberies like Kamloops has seen in recent weeks and months. It would be more public, the source said.

DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE Kamloops Mounties pulled over this Hells Angels biker on Fortune Drive on July 22, 2009. The member of the motorcycle club’s Haney chapter was spotted by Mounties in Sahali and followed to North Kamloops, where he was pulled over in a traffic stop that featured three police vehicles. At the time, police said he was believed to be driving without a licence. Police were correct and he was ticketed. The local detachment’s spokesman at the time said it’s not uncommon for Hells Angels members to pass through Kamloops.

We focus on the criminal “activity specifically, not necessarily the name-brand group who may or may not be coming through the community.

— RCMP STAFF SGT. SIMON PILLAY

“Look at Kelowna, the Bacon shooting,” the source said, referring to the Aug. 14, 2011, murder of Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon outside Kelowna’s Delta Grand Hotel. “That was big dog. They did that in front of the nicest hotel in the tourist part of town. They were saying,

‘It doesn’t matter where you are or who you are.’” That is not the case with what is happening in Kamloops. “We have these lowerlevel guys going around doing shit — pop, pop, pop, pop,” the source said. “You look at a place like Kelowna, that is dark. It is

big money. Everyone knows the hierarchy and who is in charge. But here? It’s little dogs yapping — foot soldiers. And the big dog doesn’t care because he is fine no matter what.” Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Simon Pillay said outlaw bikers are not necessarily involved in all drug trafficking. “I would say that’s an over-simplification of the situation,” he said. “There are definitely multiple import-level crime groups operating in Canada.” Bikers have set up shop in Kamloops in the past. In the late 1990s, a Hells

Angels-backed group called the Hub City Men’s Club left Nanaimo and settled in Kamloops, later changing its name to the Vipers. A Hells Angels puppet club called The Crew — believed to have been active in Prince George since 2005 — tried to gain a foothold in the city in the early 2000s. Neither club was able to flourish. Another group, the North Shore Motorcycle Club, tried to establish itself in 2011, but was not successful. A new HA-backed biker club is believed to have been attempting to set up shop in Kamloops as

recently as last April. Pillay would not comment on whether a new biker group is attempting to establish itself in the city. “I guess what I’d say is we keep a lot of emphasis on collecting intelligence on all groups operating in the criminal element in Kamloops,” he said. “We focus on the criminal activity specifically, not necessarily the name-brand group who may or may not be coming through the community. But Kamloops is a very small city and we always keep a close watch on any group coming to the city.”

Local gang scene, allegiances fluid, police say From A17

“There’s very little we can refute or confirm,” Pillay said, noting the groups involved are changing constantly. “Allegiances and violence, they cycle on a weekly basis in these types of groups. So, to say that one [event] led to another is very much an over-simplification.” RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky, the city’s top cop, acknowledged the violence could be traced back to Shirzad’s murder. “There is a lot,” he said. “There’s things going back. You can go back to Konaam Shirzad, that was a big event. Certainly in the drug culture, that was the start of when these things began.” Pillay said gangs are active in Kamloops even when violence is not making headlines. “There is provincial-level organized crime groups that have an impact in Kamloops,” he said. “I can’t confirm or refute what line they are from. … Organized crime is always a threat to any community. By their very nature they resolve conflict with criminal activity, which is typically violence.” Pillay said gang co-operation can give the appearance of safety, but it is often short-lived. “When that violence is happening in public spaces, that’s when it affects your average community member,” he said. “So, the community is going to be safer when there is no violence, but you can never rely on one organized crime group

JASON GLOVER

BROCK SHOOTINGS On the afternoon of Feb. 15, gunshots rang out at an apartment complex in the 1900-block of Tranquille Road. Jason Glover was killed and Kelly Callfas suffered serious injuries, having been shot multiple times in the face. Investigators believe Glover had been working a drug line for the biker-backed group. Gordie Braaten and Hugh McIntosh are facing charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder in relation to the incident. McIntosh, 51, was arrested in late-February and Braaten, 35, was taken into custody on Monday by members of the RCMP’s emergency response team. In the days after the shooting, police urged Kamloops residents to exercise caution given the violent conflict playing out on city streets. “These are dangerous people,” RCMP Sgt. Nestor Baird told reporters on Feb. 20.

Police have said Gill was likely targeted in a case of mistaken identity.

lines or a conflict within a drug line, or even for personal reasons, and that ends up in violence,” he said. “The violence comes in cycles and this is the worst violence we’ve seen in recent memories or ever for this community.” Lecky, who assumed

command of the city’s detachment last summer, said he doesn’t expect the violence to continue. “I can’t say that it’s a new normal,” he said. “I’m told this is unprecedented, certainly, what we’re dealing with in Kamloops.”

BIKER-BACKED CREW The group backed by outlaw bikers is believed to have been at the top of the Kamloops drug trade until recently. A

man linked to the group is believed to have been involved in the Jan. 23 hotel murders. Associates or former associates of the group are also believed to be linked to the mid-February robberies and kidnappings and the Brocklehurst murder of Jason Glover on Feb. 15.

Drug wholesaler awaits his sentence TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Crown wants a Kamloops drug wholesaler jailed for seven years in connection with a 2016 bust that turned up $200,000 worth narcotics and a loaded gun. Chad Bissat, 30, was convicted in October of 18 drug- and weaponsrelated charges following a B.C. Supreme Court trial. At trial, Bissat was described by a police officer as “a load guy,” meaning he distributed large quantities of drugs to dealers rather than small amounts to users. He operated his drug line under the name “Biz.” On March 24, 2016, police were acting on a tip from a confidential informant when they arrested Bissat and searched his backpack. Inside the bag, investigators found 120 grams of cocaine, 195 grams of meth and 60 fentanyl pills. A search warrant was obtained and a search of Bissat’s house turned up a further 1.1 kilograms of cocaine, 573 fentanyl pills, 58 grams of a mixture of heroin and fentanyl, more than four grams of heroin, 71 grams of MDMA, eight pounds of marijuana and 430 grams of magic mushrooms, as well as amounts of meth,

ketamine and steroids. Federal Crown prosecutor Anthony Varesi said the seizure was “significant.” “At the street level, the value would be about $200,000, but it should be said these appeared to be being distributed at the wholesale level,” Varesi said. In addition to the drugs, police also seized a loaded firearm, cash, cutting agents, measuring cups, blenders, drug-dealing scoresheets and a hydraulic press. “The accused could certainly be considered a mid- to high-level dealer at the wholesale level,” Varesi said. Varesi asked B.C. Supreme Court Justice Warren Milman to impose a seven-year prison sentence. Defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen, however, said the jail term should be no longer than four years. Jensen said Bissat was “grossly addicted” to hard drugs when he was arrested. “He was using heavily at the time of the offence,” Jensen said. “He had primarily been using cocaine for days on end. Then, coming down off his binges, he would use Oxycodone and also dabble in heroin.” A date for Milman’s decision has not yet been set. Bissat is free on bail.

Distracted driving blitz nets 98 tickets Kamloops Mounties kicked off Distracted Driving Month with a traffic blitz that yielded nearly 100 tickets last Friday. Officers issued 98 violations, including 64 tickets for using an electronic device while driving and 19 tickets for failing to wear a seatbelt during the roadside checks on Lansdowne Street and Columbia Street. “Distracted driving is responsible for more than 25 per cent of all car crash fatalities and is the second leading cause of fatal collisions in B.C.” RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said.

“Every year, an average of 78 people die in fatal motor vehicle collisions in B.C. because the driver was distracted or not paying attention.” Kamloops RCMP will be focusing on distracted driving and seatbelt use throughout the month of March. Fines for distracted driving start at $368 and four demerit points, which cost an extra $175 for a first offence, for a total of $543. Police recommend buckling up even if you are going short distances as the fine for not wearing a seatbelt is $167.

Canada Revenue scam Kamloops Mounties are warning the public about the annual scam that comes with tax season. The Canada Revenue Scam involves fraudsters posing as CRA representatives. They contact you via email, phone call or text message, threatening that police will arrest you if a payment is not made. The demands often include a request of

iTunes or other gift cards, as well as prepaid credit cards as payment. Police advise that the CRA will never request gift cards, prepaid credit cards or bitcoin, nor will representatives use aggressive language or threaten a person with arrest and police action. Nor does the CRA ask for personal information by email, or

ask for information pertaining to your passport, health card or driver’s licence. When dealing with a scammer, RCMP advise doing research and asking a trusted friend for advice before sending money or divulging any information. People can report an incident by calling 1-888-495-8501 (toll free) or by going online to antifraudcentrecentreantifraude.ca.

Find your happy place by helping us help the kids The gym is not a place I would ever have described as my happy place. It was a place to go that helped with achieving an end result, but it was never somewhere I was excited about going. As a mom of three, as a wife and with a busy career, my happy place was my sofa and a glass of wine. Six months ago, I attended an event and, looking at the pictures afterwards, I was so disappointed with the way I looked — and, to be honest, felt. I had already decided before seeing the photos that I needed to make a change. The pictures only reinforced that decision. I started with an accountability coach, macro-counting and a workout plan. Turning up to exercise was the hardest part — especially at 4:45 a.m. — but after my first month, I started seeing amazing results. My time at the gym became something I looked forward to. It became my happy place. I joined the KTW Press Time team because I really believe everyone should have their happy place. I am so thankful that the Kamloops YMCA/YWCA is accessible to everyone and provides affordable programs.

WEEK 1

EMMA PAPPALARDO Sound engineer RunClub+

JAIME AULT Financial planner, TD Wealth 5K Sweet

MAX PATEL KTW digital sales associate 5K Sweet

For me, March means one thing ‚ spring and the promise of warmer weather. As a bigger woman, my fitness journey has had its ups and downs. Walking into a gym as a plus-size woman is excruciatingly embarrassing. You feel like everyone is judging you for not fitting the picture-perfect image of “athlete.” It’s uncomfortable, it’s intimidating and we stop going. The first time I saw success, real success, with my fitness was when I turned up to Run Club+ one Monday evening, sweating nervously, heart thudding in my chest and thinking it was going to be awful. But it wasn’t. Jo Berry welcomed me with a big hug and a bigger smile. Every other person in the room was just like me. We didn’t fit the perfect image of “athlete.” We weren’t all slim and toned with flawless skin. We were bigger-bodied, young and old, male and female — and we belonged. That night, we went around the room and introduced ourselves with an “I am” statement. Mine was “I am not a runner.” It got a couple of laughs and more than one look that told me, “You will be.” And they were right. RunClub has shown me that to be a runner, you don’t need to look like a runner — you just have to run. So I did and continue to do so. Now I’m inviting you to run with us, too. RunClub+ spring training begins on Monday, March 18, at 6 p.m. at the Happyness Centre, 203-242 Victoria St.

I have never been one of those people who love their time at the gym, who get that runner’s high and who use exercise and running as “me time” — but I have always envied those people. I know, as I get older, that exercise is important and has mental-health benefits. I’ve tried, trust me, I’ve tried. Exercise, specifically running, has not been my friend. I’m an ex-smoker and work in an office, where the most walking I do is from my desk to the other side of the branch. With TD being a presenting sponsor of this year’s Boogie and one of our pillars being “better health,” now felt like the time to get myself in gear. I joined RunClub to have someone to be accountable to, someone to push me and someone to teach me how to love running. I’m hoping, as the weeks go on and I’m surrounded by amazing people like Jo Berry, that I’ll get in my groove, expand my seldom-used lungs and my social circle and find my inner runner. Last year, I participated in the Boogie the Bridge 5K and I didn’t run as much of it as I would have liked, but I finished. It was my first time running anywhere except on a treadmill. This year, my goal is finish in less than 30 minutes. After all, Movement is Change!

I remember my days as a professional sprint athlete. I ran 100 metres and 400 metres, but I never got into long-distance running. That required a completely different mindset. During my time at TRU, I used to watch the university teams practise, which reminded me of my days as a professional athlete and how different of a person I’ve become. When I was a student, I ran to chase a bus, which would get me to my classes and to work on time. I used to wonder how I could get back to being an athlete, but that question remained unanswered. Being a student and working two jobs, I barely had any time left to do the things I loved, such as running or playing a sport. After graduating last year and getting a full-time job with KTW Digital, I was excited for all the free time I would have to do more stuff that I loved. At work, I met Tara Holmes, who introduced me to the Boogie the Bridge event. She explained how my buddy Evan Choy had a great time doing Boogie last year. I knew this was the chance to take the first step toward becoming an athlete again and I signed up. I’m excited to be a part of a community event and to start the journey to get back on my runner’s feet.

oogie training starts this Sunday and Tuesday. Come out to Sandman Hotel this Sunday (8 a.m.) and/or Tuesday (6 p.m.) and hear the many inspirational stories and find your pace. There are many options, including our successful learn-to-run program. If you are already a runner, then learn about mindful running and being an injury-free, joyful, strong and lifetime runner. If you are a walker, we have a walk club every Sunday morning. I can’t believe we are entering 21 years of the Boogie training program. Yes, RunClub is transformational. Boogie training just may be a hidden (now notso-hidden) tribe, a tribe of super nonathletes, a tribe of true soul (and sole) rockers. I cannot believe (or can I?) Questions? that we are going Go online to runclub.ca or send an email to to birth runners for joberry@ the 21st year. boogiethebridge.com. How am I feeling about it? My fascination with health is a bit eccentric — OK, maybe more than a bit. I have never been content to just run; it’s what running does for us that continues to mesmerize and inspire me. People wonder why we all continue to run together year after year. Well, there’s the hidden tribe part. RunClub has always had a “movement” fetish that continues to lead us all down the rabbit hole of what makes us humans healthy. There is always the wonder of the human condition and the amazing discovery of figuring out what shifts us into a healthy lifestyle. “Movement is Change” is our 21-year tag line, meaning movement in our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. We hope to see you this Sunday or Tuesday — or both days. Boogie on.

Slow train coming: savouring classic tracks KAROLINE CULLEN

Champagne?” asks the steward. I hesitate because it is 9:30 a.m. Then, I recall being up before daybreak for departure from our hotel. There was barely enough light to see the honour guard of elk lounging along the hotel driveway. So it is “Yes, please!” and he pours a glass with a smiling flourish. Hubby and I clink glasses in a toast as we settle into our dome car seats. To celebrate a significant anniversary, we have chosen the slowed pace of a three-day Rocky Mountaineer train trip from Jasper to Vancouver. We ride the rails in daylight and overnight at hotels in Quesnel and Whistler. The bright, second-level dome car has glass curving from the window ledges to overhead and plush, adjustable seats. Half of the patrons shuffle down narrow stairs to the lower-level dining room for breakfast. The rest of us remain to sip our tea, nibble on scones and watch the trees blur as the train picks up speed. Young, enthusiastic hosts punctuate their service with anecdotes and skits, wildlife alerts and occasional sports score updates. We soon leave Jasper National Park, cross the Continental Divide and pass Moose Lake, the headwater for the Fraser River. Mount Robson, tallest peak in the Rockies, looms massively; so tall, its summit is shrouded in massive grey clouds. Before long, we proceed downstairs for the second breakfast seating and a constant parade of food and drink on offer continues. The dining car is elegant with white linen and flower decked tables. Breakfast features fruit, freshly baked bread and pastries, and hearty mains. Lunches start with a soup or salad and I am impressed with my main course of impeccably cooked salmon. Desserts are prettily presented and appropriately decadent. Late afternoons bring a wine and cheese service. We are so well-fed, we hardly need an evening meal at either hotel. Having rumbled through forests, over trestles, past small towns, vibrant lakes

KAROLINE CULLEN PHOTO The view of Mount Robson from either the back of the Rocky Mountaineer train or high above in the elegant dome car, is equally spectacular. Rolling along the rails in British Columbia offers views of both history and geography that are unparalled across the world — at a pace that allows the rider to take it all in.

and piles of logged timber, we reach Quesnel. Room keys are handed out on the train, which eliminates check-in at our hotel. Our luggage will be in our room when we arrive; the only suitcase wrangling needed is setting it outside our door for collection in the morning.

As we disembark, local ladies from Rotary Club greet us and young girls wave a hand-drawn welcome sign. On a walk around town, we are warmly welcomed by a number of Quesnelites. Departing Quesnel, we head for the ranches and gold rush areas of the Cariboo.

The view from our seats is second only to that from the rear facing open platform at the back of the lower level. We have left the mountains behind and cross a wide plateau. The hills are a dusty brown and far below, I glimpse the Fraser River. When on curving trestles, I can look forward for views of all the cars in our train and downward into the gorges below. Rolling hills in the vast landscape are dotted with cattle. Some of these ranches are the oldest in B.C. and this is the countryside thousands of gold seekers traversed in the 1860s. A dramatic 50-kilometre zigzag descent brings us closer to Lillooet. On the back deck, my American companion enthuses, “I am filled with awe and wonder every moment.” A British fellow relates that while he found the Grand Canyon amazing, it is nothing compared to what he has seen on this trip. People have come from all over the world to marvel at the scenery of our proverbial “backyard.” It makes me appreciate living in B.C. all that much more. We leave the Fraser River behind at Lillooet and are bound for the Coastal Mountains. The tracks hug steep cliffs, dotted with moulting mountain sheep, on a narrow shelf along lakes coloured silty green from glacial run-off. After the agricultural valley surrounding Pemberton, we arrive in Whistler. Walking around the village is welcome exercise but we happily retake our seats for a late afternoon departure. To the delectable aroma of cookies baking, we enjoy the passing panoramas: moody, dark lakes, a rushing waterfall, a steep canyon, the towering rock face of the Stawamus Chief and glacier-capped mountains along Howe Sound. As we approach the terminus in North Vancouver, people wave at the train from their yards or balconies. Apparently there are regular greeters who hardly ever miss welcoming a train. Our hosts bid us a heartfelt farewell and our luxurious, slow travel adventure ends as it began, with a glass of bubbly raised in a toast. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper syndicate.

F

inding Big Country tells the story of one of the Vancouver Grizzlies’ biggest players. Bryant “Big Country” Reeves lives up — way up — to his name. Part comes from his 7-foot stature and part of it is because he’s a country boy at heart, born in Gans, Oklahoma, population 307. Reeves was the Vancouver Grizzlies’ first-ever draft pick, going sixth overall in the first round of the 1995 NBA draft. The Grizzlies saw a lot in Reeves and after his first year, signed him for a six-year $61.8 million contract. But the Vancouver NBA team only lasted another five seasons and struggled, as expansion teams often do, to gain a foothold. Reeves became a scapegoat for the team’s failure and when they relocated to Memphis, back problems forced Reeves to retire. The film, directed by Vancouver filmmaker Kat Jayme, explores Big Swag t Card Country’s history with the team Giveaways aways and his impact. But more importantly, Jayme tracks him down and, for the first time since he left Vancouver, gets him to talk about his time there. Many have tried to talk to Reeves over the years, so there was a lot of doubt about whether or not Jayme could ever get the interview. But she persisted and gained the trust

of Reeves’ close friends, who convinced him the two should meet. “When he sits down on the screen for the very first time when it played in Vancouver, the theatre erupted in applause. We had finally found our long-lost hero,” Jayme said. But at its heart, the film is as much about Jayme as it is about Reeves. Jayme has been making films since high school and said she was “always that friend who had a camera in their hand.” She also grew up as a fan of the Vancouver Grizzlies, and the team’s six seasons overlapped with her development as a player and drove her passion for basketball. “Basketball is probably the main thing that has shaped me into the person I am today,” she told KTW. Jayme’s success as a high school player is documented in the film, as is the story about how she didn’t make the final cut for the UBC varsity team. “That’s when I realized, OK, I’m going to put all of my time and energy into film,” she said. The film that she said got her into UBC film school was also about basketball — the story of Carling Muir, a Langara College baller who played through chemotherapy while being treated for brain cancer. After graduating UBC film school in 2011, Jayme went on to

work for the National Film Board, where she oversaw more than 30 documentaries, animations and digital projects between 2012 and 2016. She also completed her short film Paradise Island, which was nominated for two Leo Awards and screened at the 2015 Cannes Short Film Corner. Her accolades — plus the help of a Telus Storyhive grant — allowed her to make Finding Big Country, which she called her “dream project.” “I knew this was a story that was going to be told sooner or later, and I knew that I had to be the first one to do it,” she said. Jayme found herself driven to succeed in her search to find Reeves, and — spoiler alert — not only did she find him, she made the best of an encounter with one of her heroes.

“Anything I wanted to do, he said ‘yes,’” she said. “I don’t think Bryant was humouring me, but I do think he realized how much this meant to me as a childhood fan — and I think that’s the main reason he did this.” Her time with Reeves included some one-on-one time on the court, and Jayme said it was her dream come true to share the court with a man who seemed, at times, to be nearly twice her size. “He wasn’t going to let me come home to Vancouver to brag that I beat Big Country — and I’m happy about that,” she said. The film will screen Saturday at 7 p.m. at Paramount Theatre, 503 Victoria St. Tickets are available at the venue, at Moviemart or online at kamloopsfilmfestival.ca.

Festival dedicated to preserving the way of the cowboy returns SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

he smell of leather will soon be in the air at Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre as the 23rd annual Kamloops Cowboy Festival is held from March 14 to March 17. The festival touts itself as the biggest of its kind in Canada and one of the best in North America. Anyone interested in cowboy music, poetry, art and food is welcome. A number of equipment vendors from all over Canada and the U.S. will also be on hand. “We say that you don’t have to be a cowboy to enjoy the Kamloops Cowboy Festival. It’s not for cowboys — it’s put on by cowboys,” said B.C. Cowboy Heritage Society president and festival host Mark McMillan. A tentative list of those presenting at the trade show includes exhibitors like the B.C. Rodeo Association, Cariboo Saddlery, Saddle Up Magazine, Longhorn Rope Creations and Kactus Western Wear. Things kick off on Thursday, with pre-festival entertainment at the Horse Barn, 517 Mt. Paul Way. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.,

enjoy music from the Gordie West Band, a duo playing some “good old cowboy music.” On Thursday evening at 6 p.m., head to the dinner dance, with music from Ed Wahl and his band. At 7 p.m., the festival kickoff party begins at the hotel. On Friday, the trade and art shows begin at noon and continue until 6 p.m. Entertainment runs from noon to 4:30 p.m. at the conference centre and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Horse Barn, with a shuttle running all day between the two venues. On Friday night, the evening show begins in the ballroom at 7 p.m. and dinner theatre starts in the theatre at 6:30 p.m. The doors will open at 10 a.m. on Saturday for the trade show to begin, followed by the art show at 11 a.m. Both will run until 6 p.m. Saturday’s evening show begins at 7 p.m. and dinner theatre runs once more at 6:30 p.m. On Sunday, the entertainment starts the day at 9:30 a.m. in the ballroom until Cowboy Church at 10:30 a.m., held until noon. The trade show and art show run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the festival’s final day and dinner theatre begins after happy hour at 5:30 p.m.

‘Mourning Becomes Electra’ on at TRU KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The latest production by TRU theatre students is Mourning Becomes Electra. The play is a retelling of the ancient Greek play Oresteia by Aeschylus. It’s set in New England after the end of the American Civil War and follows the Mannons, a wealthy shipping family torn apart by jealousy

and suspicion. The cast features student actors Brandon Reid, Shannon Cooper, Jakob Kopytko, Laine Gillies, Bryce Craig, Greg Brown, Rem Murray, Connor Seeley, Grace Penner, James McFarlane, Emma Pettit, Caleb Oman, Dehiwala Liyanage, Andrew Lucas and Kalika Cook. The play was written by Eugene O’Neill and is being

directed by TRU theatre professor Heidi Verwey. Tickets for the event are $15 and can be purchased at the box office in Thompson Rivers University’s Old Main building, 835 University Dr., or online at brownpapertickets.com. The play continues its run on Thursday, March 7, and will play until Saturday, March 9. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.

Real estate TV show to shoot in Kamloops KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Seller’s Market, a TV show that pits four realtors against each other as they compete to win new listings, is lining up a 10-episode shoot in Kamloops and still looking for homeowners who might want to be a part of the show. In Seller’s Market, realtors have just 10 minutes to pitch a homeowner why it should be them who handles the sale of their home. Only one will go home with the listing. The show airs on CHEK TV, Castanet and YesTV. It also hosts its own episodes on its website, sellersmarket.tv. It is produced by Visland Media, a film and television production studio based in Kelowna.

Producers are on the hunt for Kamloops homeowners looking to sell their homes within the next six to nine months. “The show features properties ranging from entry level condos to multimillion dollar mansions. Anyone who is interested should get in touch with us regardless of the type of home they own,” said executive producer Alex Miller. Those who want to become part of the show can email a Visland casting producer at jennifer@vislandmedia.com.

15 finalists from grades 5 to university will be competing for the Dragons

Azincourt gets it right as historical fiction A

zincourt is a great work of historical fiction from an established master of the genre, Bernard Cornwell. Fans of his are legion, not least of all due to the success of his Sharpe series. Azincourt, or Agincourt in Anglicized parlance, was one of the greatest English military triumphs of the Hundred Years’ War against France. Despite overwhelming military superiority, the native French were soundly defeated by a force one quarter of their size. There were many reasons that this outcome came about, and Cornwell is thorough in exploring them. There is certainly an element of British super-patriotism included within the covers — Cornwell knows who his target audience is. But that being said, the hallmark of a great historical fiction writer is their attention to historical detail. Even a minor failing in this regard can make or break a book. If the history is off, the reader is decidedly less inclined to willingly suspend their disbelief for the duration of the narrative. Therefore, even though Cornwell is definitively pro-English, he strives for historical impartiality and accuracy. The Hundred Years’ War was a

transitory period in many ways. Its conclusion is often referenced as the end of the chivalric era, as heavily armoured men-at-arms and knights were still existent afterwards, but became less and less relevant to the determination of martial affairs in subsequent generations. It also served as the heyday of the longbow, firearms being in their infancy, uncommon and often unreliable as yet. The battle of Agincourt, as well as the previous battle at Crecy, showed that the English and Welsh longbowmen could be devastating in large numbers. The legendary arrow storm of the English army would have been terrifying to face, even when heavily armoured. Capable of launching 5,000 arrows every 10 seconds, the archers’ efficacy in this battle was amazing, but their transition to knifemen after their arrows were depleted was the true deciding factor. The increased mobility of the light infantry in the morass of the freshly furrowed farmland was telling. Also, the ferocity of the common soldier when cornered was unleashed, as the French flew Oriflamme banners, indicating that no quarter was to be given to the numerically inferior force.

JASON WIGGINS

FURTHER READING

That force, decimated by dysentery during the siege of Harfleur, was significantly less than half that of the French and composed primarily of archers. Geoffrey Chaucer’s son rode with this army, and fittingly the clergy in this tale are often as venal and corrupt as Chaucer’s Pardoner. The events of the battle are memorably portrayed by Shakespeare in Henry V, and Henry did claim his provenance was divinely ordained. Like the battle kings of old, he also led his men personally into battle and engaged in hand-to-hand combat. The French king — by all accounts mad

as a hatter — sent his marshals in his stead. Cornwell manages to unfold these momentous events from the perspective of the everyday soldier. That soldier is our protagonist, Nicholas Hook. Hook is not exactly a model citizen. The novel opens on his attempted murder of the antagonist as part of a longstanding family feud. However, Hook is an outstanding archer. He is one of the few to survive the butchery the French enacted on the Burgundians and their English allies at Soissons. The experience leaves him with PTSD of a sort, or with the divine blessing of St. Crispinian, patron saint of the fallen town, or perhaps both. He strives ever after to listen to the internal voice of the saint, who acts as a moral compass of sorts for young Nicholas. Cornwell’s talent brings the reader back to the end of the medieval era. He shows the casual barbarism of the day as graciously as he shows the transportive grace of medieval cathedrals, and he does so through the eyes of the common man.

Chris Hadfield was his hero and Bobby, now in Grade 4, could not wait until he was old enough to become an astronaut. One day in class, while staring out the window at Mount Paul, Bobby saw something that made his heart leap. “Maybe,” he thought to himself, “I won’t have to wait until I am older to visit space!” (The next part was written by Danica Cain.) “A rocket ship!” Bobby cried in delight. Indeed, a space shuttle had landed on the back field of Mount Paul School. The grass was scorched. Thank goodness it was winter or the entire building would be on fire. Then the high side door folded down and two astronauts walked down the ramp. Bobby sprang from his seat and bounded to the door. He raced over to the astronauts and skidded to a stop at their feet. “Hello!” Bobby cried. “Can I come to space with you?” he asked. “Can you fix a rocket ship?” one of the astronauts asked. “I think so . . .” Bobby said. He walked over and gasped. On the bottom of the rocket was a blue-skinned, skinny creature with huge eyes, staring up at him. “Can you help me?” the creature hissed.

(The next part was written by Hailey Traynor, a kindergarten student.) All of a sudden, two ears popped out of Bobby’s head and he turned green, just like the alien. They became friends. The alien needed help finding his spaceship because he was on another alien’s spaceship. While they were holding hands, they began to float up to the universe. (The next part was written by siblings Ava and Juliet Lavigne. Ava is in Grade 1 and Juliet is in Grade 4.) Wow!” said Bobby. “What’s happening?” The blue alien answered without speaking: “We are ascending to the mother ship to grab some more supplies. It’s hovering just above the clouds.”

DOWN AND OUT?

The Kamloops Blazers inched closer to missing the WHL playoffs by losing 5-0 to the Vancouver Giants at Sandman Centre on Wednesday. Captain Jermaine Loewen was far from pleased with his club’s effort. Find the story on page A34. Blazers’ goaltender Dylan Ferguson (pictured) was hurt early in the second period. He is out day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Kamloops on Thursday called up Rayce Ramsay of the Humboldt Broncos to join Dylan Garand as the team’s healthy backstops. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

TRU WolfPack cut ties with coach Reeves MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

S

cott Reeves planned to return for his 14th season, but the TRU WolfPack women’s basketball team will have a new head coach in time for the 2019-2020 Canada West campaign. WolfPack athletics and recreation director Curtis Atkinson said a comprehensive review led to the change. “The end result of that was a fresh set of eyes might be beneficial to the program,” Atkinson said. “One of the most important things here is we have to remember we are dealing with people who are good people who have made significant contributions, time and effort given to our institution. But, as a program, we also have to make sure, for all of us, that we do the very best we can to keep moving the program forward.” Player input, culture, program direction and performance were analyzed, as they are for each WolfPack team after every season. Reeves spoke to KTW last month, a few days after his club fell short of the playoffs

ANDREW SNUCINS/TRU WOLFPACK Scott Reeves will not coach the TRU WolfPack women’s basketball team next season.

for the third consecutive year. “This is just the third cycle I’m going through right now,” Reeves said. “My plan would be to be back for sure. You go through waves. I still love what I’m doing.” The Pack’s former head coach has not yet replied to KTW’s request for comment, but was quoted in a TRU Sports Information press release: “I have some memorable friendships that will last a lifetime. I gave everything I had to my profession and met so

many great people along the journey.” Reeves, who led Brookswood Bobcats to gold at the B.C. High School AAA Girls Basketball Championship in 2004, 2005 and 2006, joined the Pack in time for the 20062007 campaign. The WolfPack program was in its infancy, having made the jump to Canadian Interuniversity Sport (now U sports) from the B.C. college ranks the season prior to Reeves’ arrival. Ken Olynyk and Joe Enevoldson ran the team on an interim basis in 2005-2006, when it posted a 2-18 record. TRU was 18-93 and failed to reach the playoffs in Reeves’ first five seasons on the job, but showed signs of life in 2010-2011, posting a 9-15 record to double its overall CIS win total. Canada West ditched its one-divisionconference format in time for the 2011-2012 campaign and established Prairie and Pacific divisions. TRU was 9-9 in 2011-2012 and reached the post-season for the first time in program history, but was swept 2-0 by Saskatoon in a Round 1 playoff series. The Wolfpack posted their first winning

record (15-7) in 2012-2013, but were swept 2-0 by Calgary in the first round of the playoffs. A 13-9 regular season in 2013-2014 was followed by a Round 1 post-season sweep at the hands of Alberta. Another conference restructuring took place in 2014, with the creation of the Pioneer and Explorer divisions. The WolfPack joined the Explorer Division. The program’s high-water-mark season came in 2014-2015. TRU was 18-2, hosted its first playoff series and won its first playoff game, but dropped the quarter-final series 2-1 to Calgary. Reeves was named the conference’s women’s basketball coach of the year. Reeves led the team to another impressive regular-season record (15-5) in 2015-2016, but Alberta swept the WolfPack 2-0 in Round 1 in TRU’s most-recent playoff appearance. The Pack are 14-46 and have not reached the post-season since Canada West eliminated women’s basketball divisions in time for the 2016-2017 season. See SEARCH, A35

Jermaine Loewen doesn’t want to go out with a whimper. The Kamloops Blazers’ 20-year-old captain doesn’t deserve that, but his team’s response to a big moment on Wednesday was, for the most part, a snivelling whimper. “It seemed liked we felt sorry for ourselves,” said Loewen, who was among a handful of Blazers whose spirit indicated they belong to a team on the verge of missing the playoffs. “We got down, we didn’t have any resiliency and mental toughness from enough people. It kept spiralling downwards. It was very tough to see that.” Vancouver blanked Kamloops 5-0 at Sandman Centre. The home team was at its zenith in the first period and three power plays offered opportunity to get a step on one of the league’s best teams, but goals did not materialize. Jadon Joseph tallied on the power play 34 seconds into the

second period, a wraparound effort that solved Blazers’ starting netminder Dylan Ferguson. Dylan Garand, Kamloops’ backup goalie, entered the game shortly after Joseph’s goal. Ferguson seemed to suffer a lower-body injury that forced him out of the game. He was helped off the ice by trainer Colin (Toledo) Robinson. Davis Koch welcomed a cold Garand to the contest by beating him with a wrist shot on the power play, a goal the backup netminder might want back. That marker seemed to suck the life out of the Blazers, who are seven points behind the Kelowna Rockets and Seattle Thunderbirds, the teams they must catch to reach the playoffs. Kamloops and Seattle have six games each remaining. Kelowna has five. Is there still hope for the Blazers? “I would like to believe that there is,” Loewen said. “I believe I’m going to go out there and lead the best I can and work right to the end.” Justin Sourdif, Bowen Byram

and Joseph added goals for the Giants in support of Trent Miner, who turned aside 16 shots in the shutout victory. A shot total of 16 in the pivotal contest tells part of the story. Blazers’ head coach Serge Lajoie is charged with the task of instilling belief, inspiring a group of players who seemed flat for nearly 40 minutes in what was darn near close to a must-win game. “We have to have the approach of getting better tomorrow,” Lajoie said. “If we start getting ourselves wrapped up in we can’t make it or we might make it or this needs to happen, we forget to continue to improve.” B.C. Division standings: Vancouver (94 points), Victoria (70 points), Kelowna (60 points), Kamloops (53 points) and Prince George (42 points). “I want to be positive,” Loewen said. “I don’t want to throw my team under the bus because we all make mistakes out on the ice. It’s just time for us to stop talking about it and go out and do it.”

TRU dropped its final six contests in 2018-2019 to finish 4-16 and place 14th among 16 teams in the conference, missing the playoffs by eight points. The majority of TRU’s players were in their first or second years of Canada West eligibility. Opponents outscored the rebuilding WolfPack 1,464 to 1,156, an average of 15.4 points per game. Reeves said he was looking forward to working with younger players, new recruits and veteran transfers next season, but ends his tenure with a regular-season record of 102-171 and five playoff appearances in 13 seasons. “Whoever we look at to fill the role, we’ll look to the full package,” Atkinson said. “Experience at a high-performance level will be important to us, the ability to inspire our athletes, communicating well with our athletes to raise them to new levels, but, for sure, recruiting will be a big part of the package we look at.

a history of recruiting successes?” Atkinson and athletic performance supervisor Peter Soberlak are discussing how to proceed with the hiring process. An interim coach may be hired or an intensive search might be conducted for a full-time replacement. “We have to move on it quickly,” Atkinson said. “It’s really difficult to throw someone into the fire come July or August.” Atkinson took over last January from former athletics director Olynyk. Kelly Shantz

resigned from his post as WolfPack women’s soccer head coach after the 2018 campaign and was replaced last month by Mark Pennington. It appears Atkinson has formed his coaching stable for 20192020. “It’s certainly my hope and expectation that we won’t see any more changes,” Atkinson said. “I really love the coaches we have here. I think we have the best group of coaches in the conference. I would argue that with anyone. I hope we have them all for a really long time.”

One of the Kamloops Classic Swimming club’s most important meets of the season will be held this weekend at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. The Swim BC Winter Provincial Championships will run until Sunday and feature 511 swimmers representing 40 teams from across the province. Canadian Swimming Trials, scheduled for April in Toronto, will offer swimmers opportunity to qualify for major events such as the world championships, Pan American Games and FISU Games. This weekend, some will be aiming to post times that will get them to national trials, while others who have already qualified fine tune ahead of the Toronto event. Four swimmers who have already qualified for national trials — Colin Gilbert of the University of Denver, Sarah Dalke of UBC, Ryley McRae of the TRU WolfPack and Sarah Koopmans — will swim under the Classics’ banner this weekend. Keana Smart has banked one qualifying time for national trials, “but unless she has three times, two as a minimum, there is no point in going to a competition like that,” Dalke said. National development coach Ken McKinnon will be at winter provincials keeping an eye on identified prospects.

KTW FILE PHOTO Keana Smart of the Kamloops Classics is among swimmers aiming to reach national trials by posting qualifying times this weekend at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre.

“He’s kind of like a pro scout, if you relate it to hockey,” Dalke said. “He wants to see how his talent is doing so when he takes them to various competitions during the summer leading into world championships, he’s got enough information as possible so he can do a very good job with them.” TRU WolfPack swimmers Matt Gauthier and Emily Dagasso will be in action. Dalke, who also coaches the Pack, will keep an eye out this weekend for potential recruits. “It is amazing how many people don’t real-

ize that the university is around here and that we have a swim team,” Dalke told TRU Sports Information. “Slowly, but surely, the message is getting out there.” MEET CHAMPS The Classics won the Williams Lake Invitational Swim Meet last weekend, with 37 athletes combining for 91 top-three finishes. Five Classics — Sarah Tulloch, Taylor Pearson, Katie Franks, Caillen Gillespie and Max Prelypchan — won medals for finishing as aggregate leaders in their respective age categories.

SEEKING MEANINGFUL PARTICIPATION IN LENT

A

sh Wednesday this week set in motion the season of Lent, reminding the faithful to prepare for a season of meditation upon the sacrificial death of saviour Jesus. Christians will prepare themselves to think of the cross and the marks of the nails on Christ’s hands and feet. But the doubting Thomases in our midst even today still insist “except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails … I will not believe.” The Apostle Paul was so richly used of God because he was able to say: “I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. I am crucified with Christ.” The lessons and challenges come to the believers to prove the story of the cross in 21st century in the form of: • A personal crucifixion, which is essential: How easy it is to say, “I am crucified with Christ,” but how different it is in fact. If we are faced with honesty, we should ask ourselves “what has the Holy Spirit really taught me about death, the willingness for death to self?” My reputation, is it dead? There are still those desires, those wants — perhaps, linked up with money. It’s the aim to get piles of money so that my home may be super comfortable, rather than that people shall see in me the sacrificial living. It may be that some of the plans for my life are my deepest love. Though there is much which I have laid on the altar, there are things which I still hold and love, even at the end of my journey. God and the Holy Spirit may have been trying to say to me, “You are not ‘dead’ yet.” The trouble that has kept many Christians out of blessing has been deep resentments against God because he allowed something to happen and they shook their fists in His face. How far has the death of Jesus and how far has crucifixion entered into my soul? How far am I willing for death to self? Sometimes because we

NARYAN MITRA

You Gotta Have

FAITH

stubbornly hold out and are unwilling, God has to come through some shattering bereavements, through some terrific commotion, as it were, in some part of our lives or business and tear everything away from us. God begins to show us something which we really love more than we love him. And God says in the midst of the crisis, “I want that. Give me that.” • A reckoning on Christ’s death: That is the whole message of Romans, chapter 6. “Knowing this, that our old person is crucified with Christ” — and there is the deliverance from self, the deliverance from all those things, all the wants and the hungers which self just loves to hold. When Christ died on the Cross, he not only died for sins but he died to take our old selves with him there to the Cross. He died that we might be crucified with him, that we might know what it is to reckon on his death, to reckon myself dead indeed to sin but alive unto God. If people are going to see Jesus in me, it is a personal crucifixion that is essential. • A living witness that is vital: We read of Thomas saying, “Except I see …” It is not talk, he wanted sight. The apostles had talked enough, but Thomas wanted something he could look at. That is why Christ said to his disciples, “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” People want life, not mere claims. Many of the people that we meet day by

day have never bothered to read one word of the Bible. They have never opened the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. But they look at the fifth Gospel according to me every day, and possibly this gospel is not good news. They look at a person who names the name of Christ, but whose life is defeated, whose life is no reflection of Jesus Christ or anything like him. What a sad thing it is for these people to know with a remarkable intuition when they meet the genuine thing. An outsider, a godless person will feel the draw of a selfless life, will feel the draw and the pull of a life that is showing forth the fruit of the Spirit — love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Not only such people want life and not just claims, they want contact not aloofness. The tragedy is that so many people who name the name of Christ have very little concern about the outsiders. The only concern they have is with their own little circles. Their favourite hymn is, “You in your small corner and I in mine.” And,“I hope you won’t come into mine very quickly.” But the Saviour was known as one who went among publicans and sinners. He was out in the world all the time. He was always making contact with the needy ones. If my objective in life is to be like him, then the sooner I get out of my cozy little circle and after the unsaved, the better. It is a solemn thing to be in trust with the Gospel. It is a solemn thing for us to be known as Christians. You see, eternity is at stake in this vital matter. We will either be of use by God or we would be castaways. This Lent, I want to be of enormous use by God in my own little corner. ryanmitra225@gmail.com KTW welcomes submissions to its Faith page.

The archeological impact assessment explained TODD PAQUIN

SPECIAL TO KTW

republicofarchaeology.ca

T

he archeological impact assessment (AIA) is a stage of culturalresource management focusing on the impacts a project may have on archeological sites. It is conducted by a qualified professional archeologist, involving the visual inspection and subsurface testing of a project area, followed by an evaluation of identified archeological sites in relation to development activities. An AIA may follow an archeological overview assessment, in which documented archeological sites, or the likelihood of archeological sites, was noted. Ideally, AIA is initiated early in project design to allow adequate time for the implementation of sitespecific recommendations. In B.C., an archeological site must not be damaged nor artifacts removed except under a Heritage Conservation Act (HCA) permit. This also applies to an AIA, where subsurface testing may intercept buried archeological deposits and artifacts collected. An archeologist’s HCA permit outlines the methods they implement during AIA fieldwork, analysis and reporting for the proposed project. The archaeology branch of the

LEFT: Shovel testing during archeological impact assessment fieldwork. ABOVE: Mechanical testing during archeological impact assessment fieldwork. TODD PAQUIN PHOTOS

provincial government reviews applications and issues HCA permits. First Nations bands in whose territories a project is proposed also review and comment on HCA permit applications. Further, the archaeologist will apply for First Nations cultural

heritage permits where bands have developed their own permitting systems. The AIA fieldwork is conducted by crews composed of archeologists and First Nations members. Following visual inspection, subsurface testing is initially conducted through

manual shovel testing to discover and define the extent of buried archaeological sites. Where there is a likelihood of deeply buried archeological sites, mechanical procedures such as auger or backhoe testing may be implemented. If archaeological sites are found, the

artifacts are collected and to-scale maps are produced of the site area. Information is collected on the depth, extent and type of artifacts recovered, as well as any features encountered at the sites (e.g., cultural depressions, buried hearths, culturallymodified trees, etc.). In some cases, evaluative units measuring one metre by one metre may be excavated in a systematic manner to gain additional information about the archeological deposits. Following fieldwork, the archeologist makes site interpretations based on analysis of the artifacts and field data.

At this point, the archeologist must evaluate and review the sites versus project plans so management strategies can be formulated where impacts might occur. An evaluation considers the sites’ significance relating to scientific, public, economic, historic and ethnic variables. These relate to a site’s potential to generate understanding about human history, contribute to other disciplines or industries, provide educational, interpretive or economic opportunities and reflect connections to current ethnic groups. Ethnic significance is typically determined through discussion with the applicable First Nations for Indigenous sites. Project plans are then reviewed to identify the extent of possible impacts to archaeological sites. These include direct impacts such as mechanical blading of site sediments and indirect impacts like ongoing erosion to site areas or artifact collecting due to increased public access. If it is determined that developments may alter a site, the management strategies take into account the type of impact, the level of disturbance and the evaluated significance of the site. The recommended strategies may include site avoidance, protection measures, excavation programs and/or construction surveillance.

With the exception of site avoidance, these strategies may involve additional, possibly significant, amounts of archeological work and HCA permits. It is always preferable to avoid or reduce impacts to an archeological site both in terms of preserving a culturally important, non-renewable resource and in relation to the cost implications for proposed projects. At the conclusion of an AIA, an HCA permitcompliant report must be submitted to the archeology branch for review. The branch will respond in writing about the recommendations and outline requirements for any additional archeological work relating to the project. The report is also provided to applicable First Nations so they may remain knowledgeable about archeological results and recommendations pertaining to their identified territories.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Love Always Remembers

Fay June Rosemary Dovauo (formerly Jelfs; née Cairns)

Fay was the last of her generation. She was born on December 31, 1929 in Elrose, Saskatchewan to Robert and Elsie Cairns, a much younger sibling and only sister to her brothers Frank, Hugh and Ian. The family stayed in Saskatchewan for a few years after her birth and then moved to Cloverdale, BC where Robert and Elsie ran a chicken farm. Fay graduated from Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir High School in 1948 and moved to Vancouver. She attended U.B.C. for a year and then worked for the B.C. Electric Railway.

With over whelming heartaches, we want to share that on January 6, 2019 our Dad, our Papa and my husband Victor Magnus Alm passed away. He was such a wise man, always guiding us with the best of opinions and exceptional advice. He helped us grow into who we were meant to be. Our family is happy and strong because of the good example of my unique loving husband. He brought a light so great to our world, that even after he has gone, the light will always remain with us… We will forever carry your Heart in our Hearts Our love is never ending...

Susan, Gregory; Harlow, Saylor Natalee; Beau, Noah, Nixon Jesse; Megan, Jensen, Mattheus, Bentley

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW

She married Trevor Jelfs in 1951. Fay and Trevor had three children - Rick, Arlene and Karen - in Vancouver. The family moved around the Interior before settling in Kamloops (Valleyview) in 1962. A second son Allan was born there.

Every Friday in KTW!

Q. Isn’t it illegal to scatter Murray’s ashes?

When the marriage ended, Fay went back to school and received a Business Administration degree from Cariboo College. She also attained her Chartered Professional Accountant designation and was an active member of the Kamloops Business Professional Woman’s Club. She worked at a number of local businesses. Fay married Murray Dovauo in 1989. They travelled extensively and spent several winters with Fay’s brother Ian in Arizona. They lived happily and independently in Kamloops until two years ago when Fay’s needs became too great and she moved to a long-term care home. Murray was a constant in Fay’s life, caring for her and at her side to the end. He misses her terribly, as does the rest of the family.

A. You can’t bury ashes in a Federal park, but you can scatter them there. Otherwise, in BC there are no laws against scattering, except for private property law and, believe it or not, litter law. Never heard of anyone being charged for littering ashes, though.

Fay was predeceased by her brothers. She is survived by her loving husband Murray and her four children Rick (Morris), Arlene, Karen (Brian) and Allan (Laura). Fay has seven grandchildren Trevor, Kim (Ned), Graham (Leah) Sarah (Neil), Tanis (Boomer), Kaiya and Jayda and eight greatgrandchildren Maya, Kalixto, Alivia, Lucy, Leith, Sophia, Keira and Brennan. Special thanks to the staff at Ponderosa Lodge and Kamloops Seniors Village for the care and attention they gave to Fay. No service is planned. A donation to Fay’s favourite charity, UNICEF, may be considered in lieu of flowers.

NIKOLIC, Savo May 15, 1932 - February 26, 2019

Thomas Bowen Jones It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Thomas Bowen Jones of Kamloops, BC on March 4, 2019 at 96 years of age. Tom is survived by his daughter Gloria (Jim) Bench of Kamloops, grandchildren Angela (Todd) MacKinnon and David (Tara) Bench, as well as great-grandchildren Brandon, Shyanne (Shaun), Marissa (Riley), Caleb and Kalan. Tom was predeceased by his wife Nancy, parents Griffith and Esther Jones, brother Pryce (Joyce) Jones, sister Mary (Les) Jones and numerous cousins throughout Wales.

Savo passed away suddenly after a morning walk with his wife. Savo was born in Knin, Yugoslavia. An early career in shipbuilding changed to one of home building and with CN Rail in Canada until retirement. Golf, curling, and fishing, with friends were the next adventures. Always a strong man he would give his family and friends anything. We all miss you; Linda, Savlin (Dorie-Anne), Cole, Savanna, Dušan (Branislava), Diana, and Sandra. A special thank you to the first responders of Ashcroft. A family celebration to be held at a later date. Online condolences may be made at www.tvfh.ca

Tom was born in Neath, South Wales, UK in 1922. He was raised in the coal mining areas of South Wales before his father, who was a miner, moved them to North Wales in order to find work in the slate quarries. Welsh speaking Tom was 11 years old when the family was again moved back to South Wales where Tom learned to speak English. World War II saw Tom enlist into the Royal Navy, becoming a Petty Officer Electrical Mechanic, and seeing action in the North Atlantic, D-Day landings and convoy escorts to North Russia. Years later, he was knighted by the French government and awarded the Legion d’Honneur and the Russian Naval Ushakov medal. With his new wife Nancy, they settled in Glamorgan, South Wales, where Tom worked for the G.W.R. docks offices, retiring

as Asst. Docks Manager in Swansea, before immigrating to Canada to live with his daughter and family. He loved living in Canada, taking time to travel and see the sights. Tom and Nancy became skilled lawn bowlers representing White Rock in three BC Summer Games and winning several medals between them. He loved being with his family and friends. When his wife of 64 years passed away he moved into Bedford Manor, before an illness caused him to move into Ponderosa Lodge and finally to Ridgeview Lodge in Kamloops.

A Memorial Service will take place at 11:00 am on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at First Baptist Church, 454 Columbia St., Kamloops, with Pastor Allan Hern officiating.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM In Loving Memory of

Edward Lincoln Wilson

July 11, 1942 – February 15, 2019

Our friend Mr. Ed said good-bye February 22, 2019 for another journey. Family and friends Bruce and Karen, sons Corey and Ryan and Brian Logan were friends and also caregivers for the last couple of months and were with him through until the end. He was born October 27, 1943 at St. Mary’s Hospital in New Westminster. He was predeceased by his parents James and Violet Wilson and brother Alan. He grew up in the New West (Queens Park) area. Then moved along to his favorite place Likely, BC in 1985. He worked at the Likely Hotel. That journey ended and Mr. Ed moved to Kamloops. While living here he drove for Yellow Cabs. He was a very special character. He usually spoke in riddles – had a great memory – loved food. Also loved going on drives in and around Kamloops area and there was always a story about where he had been and what he had seen and what he may have eaten. He seemed gruff but his bark was bigger than his bite. He was a gentle soft giant. Close friends Mary and Russel knew this about Mr. Ed as did so many others. Consider yourself special if you knew our friend. He was a loyal, caring friend as many knew. Thanks to everyone for being part of making his journey wonderful. Friends cherish the memories of our friend Mr.Ed. Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, March 10, 2019 at the Odd Fellows Hall on Tranquille 11:00 am – 2:00 pm Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

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

Her Journey’s Just Begun by E. Brenneman

Don’t think of her as gone away, Her journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets, This earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, From the sorrows and the tears, In a place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing, That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness, Can really pass away. And think of her as living, In the hearts of those she touched, For nothing loved is ever lost; And she was loved so much.
