Final city tax hike set at 2.96 per cent SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

Steve Kuzak was walking his two dogs along the South Thompson River near Pioneer Park on Friday when one of the canines, a Bernese named Lucy, fell through the ice and into the cold water. Kuzak tried to rescue his pet, but he, too, fell through the ice. That spurred passerby Graham Agassiz and others into action, with Agassiz — a world-renowned mountain biker — grabbing a ladder from his vehicle and using it to help rescue Kuzak and Lucy. The civilian heroes were soon joined by members of Kamloops Fire Rescue, who brought Kuzak to shore. “My husband is doing really well,” Nancy Kuchta told KTW. “He’s very traumatized by what happened, though, understandably. It was really scary.” Kuchta said the second dog, a dachshund named Luigi, was spooked and ran free for about an hour before they could catch him.

RESCUED FROM RIVER ICE

Kamloops council has decided the fate of 13 supplemental budget items and city staff have now determined the city’s final provisional tax rate: 2.96 per cent. For owners of average-assessed properties — which is $403,000 — that rate means an increase of $62 on their annual tax bill, an amount Mayor Ken Christian said council should be proud of achieving. “That’s a pretty good number in 2019,” Christian said. “I know that there are people in our community who will not accept that figure, but I think council has done

a very good job getting us to this stage.” The supplemental expenditures (requests brought forward by staff and the community) approved by council include funding for: • hiring an additional full-time building inspector; • removing derelict buildings at Tournament Capital Ranch; • creating an asset management fund; • reviewing boat launches in the city; • building a Kamloops Fire Rescue training centre; • creating and developing a site plan for a cultural centre that will open in the former Stuart Wood elementary downtown.

Interior Health has confirmed one case of measles in the 100 Mile House area, two hours north of Kamloops on Highway 97. The health authority is now following up with anyone who may have been in contact with the measles patient to determine their vaccination status and whether they are eligible for a post-exposure prophylaxis — medication to stave off the virus after exposure for unvaccinated individuals. Anyone who visited the following locations at the times noted should contact Interior Health at 1-855-5496364 to speak with a public health nurse: • Tim Hortons in 100 Mile House on Thursday, Feb. 28, between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., • Spruce Hills Resort in 108 Mile Ranch on Friday, March 1, between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., • Interlakes Market and Canco in Lone Butte on Saturday, March 2, between 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., • Interlakes Regional Library in Lone Butte on Saturday, March 2, between 5:30 p.m. and 8:15 p.m., • Smitty’s Restaurant in 100 Mile House on Sunday, March 3, between 2:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. and

• Spruce Hills Resort in 108 Mile Ranch on Sunday, March 3, between 4:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Anybody concerned about exposure to measles should watch for its symptoms, which include fever, cough, runny nose and red and inflamed eyes. That is followed by a rash, which starts on the face and neck and spreads to the chest, arms and legs, lasting for at least three days. Complications from the illness can include pneumonia, inflammation of the brain, convulsions, deafness, brain damage and death. Those who think they may have contracted measles should call ahead to their doctor’s office or hospital before arriving so measures to prevent the virus’ further spread can be implemented. Interior Health said the best way to protect against measles is to ensure vaccinations are up to date. Vaccines are free at community health centres. In Kamloops, the Kamloops Health Centre at 519 Columbia St. downtown is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

City approves for funding for transit From A1

• a parking lot for Singh Street Bowl; • an additional 3,000 hours of transit service; • an acceleration of active transport projects; • an RCMP training facility and gun range; • wayfinding signs for downtown; • a new park on McArthur Island, which will include a nature area and a disc golf course. Additionally, Westsyde Neighbourhood Centre (Westsyde elementary) user groups had sought $60,000 to upgrade an outbuilding in Westsyde Centennial Park, but at the recommendation of city staff to wait until it was confirmed user groups would need to relocate, council voted to deny the funding. Debate centred around the creation of an asset management plan, the expansion of transit hours and fund-

ing for site design at the former Stuart Wood elementary, which is to become a cultural centre. Denis Walsh was the only councillor to oppose an additional $200,000 to create a site plan for a cultural centre at the former Stuart Wood elementary. “We haven’t been given the OK by the province to do this yet. I think we should wait until the project is actually approved,” he said, also noting the cost of the item. Christian said senior governments want projects that are ready to go — and sometimes repurposing buildings can be more expensive. Staff said an asset management plan would allow the city to accumulate funding to tend to its capital assets, for projects such as roof repairs and necessary work at Sandman Centre and city hall. Coun. Dieter Dudy called the fund a “no-

brainer” and said it’s no different from what a homeowner might do to pay for upkeep. The additional asset management plan tax, a 0.5 per cent increase each year for at least 10 years, will net the city $36.9 million before any return on investment. Council also voted to approve a 0.5 per cent tax rate increase that will allow for an additional 3,000 hours of transit. Development director Marvin Kwiatkowski said everything is pointing toward an increased use of transit, noting more availability is a common request. The approval will mean an additional $200,000 spent. CAO David Trawin said that even with the increase, there still aren’t enough hours to fulfil the city’s transit master plan. The new tax rates will need to be approved by council by April 16.

For the first time in 13 years, Westsyde elementary will be filled this fall with the sights and sounds of wide-eyed students. As expected, the Kamloops-Thompson board of education on Monday night unanimously approved motions reconfiguring David Thompson elementary’s catchment area and spending $1 million to renovate and re-open Westsyde, which was closed in 2006 due to declining enrolment. The decision, however, was followed by an additional motion from the board stipulating current Grade 6 students at David Thompson now living outside the school’s new catchment be given priority to remain at that school for their final year, Grade 7, in 2019-2020. A public-consultation process regarding re-opening Westsyde yielded mostly positive feedback, but a common concern from parents was that some students heading into their final year of elementary school would be split up from their friends. One suggested fix proposed at a Jan. 30 public meeting was to move all students affected by the catchment change except for those going into Grade 7. Staff, however, advised against this idea.

“This was a tough one,” school district assistant superintendent Rob Schoen told the board, pointing out there are arguments for any class to remain at David Thompson. “Where we landed is we favour families staying together at schools over friends,” Schoen said. He added that students still have the option to transfer schools. Trustee Cara McKelvey suggested the motion to give Grade 6 students a chance to remain at David Thompson, noting it was a prevalent issue raised by parents. Staffing hasn’t yet been completed for Westsyde. Transfer approvals are made by a school’s principal, who will be hired in the spring. Monday’s vote approved a catchment change that will see all students living north of Pine Springs Road — starting from homes that border Sicamore Drive, Sumac Place and Seneca Place — attend Westsyde. Re-opening Westsyde is being done to offset overcrowding in nearby David Thompson, which is operating at 125 per cent capacity as per the Ministry of Education’s calculation that 341 students make up 100 per cent capacity in David Thompson. It is the smallest physical school in the district and has more than 400 students. Re-opening Westsyde will move an estimated 175 students to that school.

As part of the re-opening of Westsyde, Schoen said city has indicated it will create a 30 km/hr school zone speed limit on Westsyde Road once the school at 3550 Westsyde Rd. is re-opened in the fall. He said the Kamloops RCMP has agreed to run radar and monitor speeds once the changes have been made. The speed limit on Westsyde Road is now 60 km/h. Schoen said the city has also committed to consulting with Westsyde elementary’s parent advisory council to determine where and if a second crosswalk on Westsyde Road leading to the school is necessary. He said the school has a built-in pick-up and drop-off loop for parents directly in front of the school door that, if used properly and not for parking, should adequately function as a convenient drop off space for parents. Schoen said the majority of students being sent to the school will live within walking distance. In addition to renovation work, slated to start this spring, capital expenses include $55,000 for the library, $50,000 for textbooks, $15,000 for office supplies and $30,000 for gym equipment. Re-opening Westsyde elementary will require about $212,000 in additional operating costs to fund administrative, clerical and custodial positions, as well as utility costs, which will be reallocated from current budgets.

Jury now deciding fate of accused in manslaughter trial TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Jurors are deliberating the fate of a Kamloops man charged with manslaughter in connection with a 2016 altercation outside a North Shore bar that left a fellow patron dead. Lawyers made their closing arguments on Monday in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops. Sean Dunn, 42, was found dead on a sidewalk on Wood Street near Tranquille Road in the early-morning hours of Dec. 30, 2016. James David Bond, 30, is standing trial on one count of manslaughter. Court has head the two men were among a number of people drinking at The Duchess in the hours leading up to Dunn’s death. Last week, witnesses described Dunn badgering Bond’s girlfriend, Sarah Hupe, throughout the night. In his testimony, Bond admitted he punched Dunn three times in the head and left him unconscious. He said Dunn had been harassing Hupe, pushed a pool cue into her crotch and grabbed her breast. According to Bond, Dunn had

his hand on Hupe’s breast when he punched him. Hupe also took the witness stand, confirming Bond’s version of events. On Monday, defence lawyer Don Campbell said his client was protecting his girlfriend and stopping a sexual assault in progress — both defences under the law — when he punched Dunn. “Mr. Bond was pushed to his limit — pushed beyond his limit — by Mr. Dunn’s constant harassing behaviour of his girlfriend,” Campbell said. A bouncer from The Duchess testified last week he had to separate Dunn from the group, including Bond and Hupe, multiple times throughout the night and after the bar closed. Bond said he tried repeatedly to talk to Dunn and tell him to leave them alone. Campbell described Dunn as being “a moth to a flame” in his persistent attraction to Hupe throughout the night. “Is it reasonably possible that Sean Dunn grabbed Ms. Hupe’s breasts? If so, I believe you will find that James Bond acted to protect her or to stop that action. That was the only reasonable

One of two men charged in connection with a gangrelated shooting in Brocklehurst last month that killed a man and left a woman with serious injuries may seek bail as soon as next week. Gordie Braaten appeared by video in Kamloops provincial court on Monday, March 11, from Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre, where he has been held since his arrest last week at a home on the Tk’emlups te

GORDIE BRAATEN

Secwepemc reserve. The 35-year-old Braaten is charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder. Also facing the same charges is Hugh McIntosh, 51, who was arrested in Langley on Feb. 25.

Jason Glover was killed on Feb. 15 in a shooting at an apartment complex in the 1900-block of Tranquille Road. Kelly Callfas was shot multiple times in the face and suffered serious injuries. The shooting was one in a string of recent high-profile violent incidents in Kamloops linked to organized crime and the city’s drug trade. In court on Monday, defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen complained about a lack of disclosure from the Crown. He said he asked for information on Feb. 28. “To date, I’ve

received nothing,” he said. “I’ve received nothing in writing from Crown as to why or when I might receive that disclosure.” Jensen said Braaten wants to seek bail “as soon as possible” — something he said can’t be done without disclosure. Braaten is slated to make two appearances in court on March 18, one in provincial court to address the lack of disclosure and another in B.C. Supreme Court to schedule a bail hearing. McIntosh has a bail hearing scheduled for March 22.

action left for him,” Campbell told the jury. Crown prosecutor Frank Caputo urged jurors to question the reliability of the testimony of Bond and Hupe. “Use your common sense,” he said. “Look at the evidence as a whole.” According to Caputo, the attack on Dunn was motivated by “jealousy and anger.” “Was this protection or revenge? Was it reaction or overreaction?” he asked. “I leave those questions with you.” According to Campbell, Bond’s actions were not those of a jealous boyfriend. “This isn’t about jealousy,” he said. “Jealousy is when your girlfriend is flirting with some guy who’s flirting with her. That is simply not the case. … He’s angry, but he’s entitled to be angry while he’s protecting his vulnerable girlfriend. It would be bizarre if he were not angry.” More than a dozen of Dunn’s family and friends were present for every day of Bond’s six-day trial. About a half-dozen of Bond’s supporters have filled seats in the other side of the court gallery.

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Members of the province’s anti-gang squad detain a man with the use of handcuffs as they search his vehicle during a stop on Wood Street in North Kamloops on Feb. 21. There has been no word on whether this stop resulted in charges, nor whether this man is in any way connected to gang activity.

Anti-gang squad back in city for more KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

B.C.’s anti-gang agency returned to Kamloops last month for another targeted campaign against Kamloops’ criminal underworld. The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s uniform gang enforcement team stopped 144 vehicles, checked 173 people and seized a variety of substances believed to be methamphetamine, crack cocaine and fentanyl during a nine-day sweep of Kamloops in February. Police say several people were arrested

on outstanding warrants. The anti-gang squad also seized 19 weapons, including a replica .357 magnum pellet gun, knives, brass knuckles and bear spray. Also found was more than $48,000 in cash believed to be associated to the drug trade. This was the anti-gang squad’s second visit to Kamloops since a flurry of violence — including four murders, a kidnapping and a number of assaults and robberies — began in October. The team conducted a seven-day operation in late January following two

fatal shootings police described as targeted attacks related to a local gang war, one of which was later deemed to likely have been a case of mistaken identity, claiming the life of an innocent bystander. During the first operation police stopped 78 vehicles and checked 132 people believed to be connected to the street-level drug trade, seizing brass knuckles, knives, axes, machetes and a .22 caliber firearm. Police also confiscated $40,000 they believe os tied to the drug trade, as well as small amounts of cocaine, crystal meth and fentanyl.

Should Kamloops have its own team? JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

A city councillor wants to know whether Kamloops needs a specialized anti-gang police unit, similar to those serving larger regions. The squads make up the largest integrated police program in the country, composed of police officers from more than a dozen agencies, with the aim of disrupting and dismantling organized crime groups.

“From everything I’ve been able to find online, it was a lot because of the gang problems, but also the brazenness of the attacks and gun violence they were seeing,” Coun. Mike O’Reilly said. “Broad daylight shootouts, kind of sort of what we’re starting to see now.” O’Reilly posed the question to Kamloops RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky during the latter’s recent presentation to council. “So, I’m wondering with your expertise, do you think

we’re at the point where we need to ask for our own enforcement unit in Kamloops or are we getting enough support from the provincial resources, having them shuttled in when needed?” O’Relly asked. Lecky said the detachment will take any support it can get, noting the units are dispersed throughout districts in the province, on Vancouver Island, in the Lower Mainland, in Prince George and in Kelowna. “We do not have a presence,

a permanent presence, here in Kamloops,” Lecky said. “But we get occasional assistance on a case-by-case basis and, certainly, of late we have had to enlist the support of the uniform gang enforcement team and others.” Lecky said other supports are working behind the scenes that “nobody sees or hears from. “If I had the opportunity to get the team here, or a contingent here, I would welcome it,” he said.

HOLDING THEM TO A HIGHER STANDARD

I

t’s difficult for Canadians to watch as the SNC-Lavalin affair continues to be reported. For the past several weeks, the story has unfolded as Jody WilsonRaybould, the former justice minister, said she had come under pressure at the federal government level to halt a criminal prosecution against a Montreal-based engineering firm. An accusation of this nature is a serious matter and Canadians are right to feel concern and anger as the story continues to grow. But at the same time, the outcry also shows Canadians are holding their government to a high standard. Canadians are not always happy with the government of the day. During every prime minister’s time in office, there are some who are angered and disgusted by the government’s direction or by specific decisions. We expect a level of ethical behaviour from those who are in elected roles. Leaders and elected officials who do not live up to this standard deserve to be called out for their behaviour once the facts are known. For the most part, Canada does well in this regard. According to the latest Corruption Perceptions Index, compiled by Transparency International, Canada was ranked ninth worldwide, tied with Luxembourg. Denmark, New Zealand and Finland were the top three countries on the list. Nations at the bottom included Somalia, South Sudan, Syria and North Korea. In those countries and others, a story such as the SNC-Lavalin affair would not be considered unusual — or even newsworthy. We expect good government and a high ethical standard from elected officials and public-sector departments. This is a sign of a healthy democracy and it is something Canadians must never take lightly. It is difficult to watch the SNC-Lavalin story as it unfolds. But if this matter did not cause concern, it would be a sign of a much bigger problem with our government. — Penticton Western News

Background to the stories

L

ast week, Kamloops This Week published a series of stories detailing the origins of the current gangland war that has led to numerous murders, at least one kidnapping and various robberies and assaults, and those behind three gangs involved in the violence. Shortly thereafter, Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie, the detachment’s media-relations officer, issued a release, claiming the KTW articles contained “information known to be inaccurate, mixed with factual content.” KTW immediately contacted Shelkie to ask specifically what information in the stories was inaccurate so it could be corrected in a follow-up story. Shelkie replied that she did not have that information and referred the request to Simon Pillay, the staff sergeant closely connected with the RCMP’s investigation of organized crime in the city. Pillay declined to elaborate, as he did when interviewed last week for the feature article. It should be noted that KTW’s weeks-long investigation into why the drug-related gang-involved violence has become so potent and who is involved included interviews with people in the law and justice system who have deep knowledge of the issue. Some of the information gleaned from those sources was information previously released by police and some of the information came from publicly available court documents, but much of the information was not previ-

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS ously made public. Armed with all the information — a timeline of events alongside the various players in the three gangs vying for control of the city’s drug trade — KTW reporter Tim Petruk met with Pillay and asked the officer to review the data and advise as to what is accurate and what is not accurate. As detailed in the published stories, Pillay declined, saying, “There’s very little we can refute or confirm.” It should also be noted that KTW, upon advice of sources, decided to withhold names of some of those involved in the gang scene due to the possibility identifying them could place them in danger. In the absence of the RCMP confirming the veracity of information when given the opportunity to peruse that information, we are left considering the sources of that information — and we are confident with the information provided to us by those sources. (A similar scenario played out in 2016, when a KTW story on

rising gang activity was dismissed by RCMP as being inaccurate. Shortly thereafter, it was learned police had indeed been investigating for some time a new violent gang that had arrived in Kamloops — the Wolf Pack.) There are reasons why police legitimately cannot release information on incidents and there are times when police simply will not release information on incidents, with the media unaware of those reasons. When Kamloops is the midst of the worst gang violence in its history, with police saying one death likely being that of an innocent man targeted in a case of mistaken identity, the public has a right to know why this is happening, who is making this happen and what is being done to address the carnage. We have tried to provide that information with last week’s stories and we invited the police to weigh in. There is no doubting Mounties have done a remarkable job in identifying, arresting and having the Crown lay charges against many suspects in the violent incidents that have plagued the city. The speed at which arrests have been made and charges laid is impressive. It is our duty to continue our coverage to give the public context surrounding those arrests and the pending trials, beyond what can be found in press releases.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

END PAY PARKING AT ALL HOSPITALS IN B.C.

ART ON MOVE GIVES THANKS Editor: Thank you, Kamloops, for showing continued support toward the importance of moving art into new places. Art on the Move was a terrific fundraiser. We thank CBC Radio, the City of Kamloops and CFJC-TV Midday for helping to get the word out. We’ll be back next year. Mairi Budreau president Thompson Nicola Shuswap chapter Federation of Canadian Artists

Editor: After being ticketed on two occasions at Royal Inland Hospital parking, even though I had paid for my spot, I decided to look into this issue. I was in great distress both times as I attended to my elderly parents; one in care and one with me. The first time I transposed the stall number I was in and the second ticket I received was for parking in a handicap spot, even though I had a valid handicap sticker. The handicap sticker isn’t on the rearview mirror because it is broken and doesn’t stay there, but was attached to the visor, which we flipped down. On both occasions, I sent the documentation proving payment (meter receipt) and copy of our handicap sticker to Impark in the provided selfaddressed envelope. We have since been sent to collections. Impark is impossible to deal with on the phone, with staff saying I should have dealt with it right away, which I did. They then denied that I sent them the documents, claiming I must have sent

them to the wrong address. That is impossible, considering I sent it in Impark’s self-addressed envelopes — twice. They are expecting me to pay a $57 fine for a $3 parking fee multiplied twice. I have been in touch with a provincial organization, Hospital Pay Parking (online at hospitalpayparking.ca), which has provided me with information. Neither Impark nor Interior Health was willing to answer any of my questions. The first thing we should all know is to read the small print Impark has posted at its sites, where you will find you give up many rights. The fine print also states it is a private lot, but Impark does not own the lot — Interior Health does. Interior Health rents the meters from Impark, with the health authority receiving the pay parking revenue and Impark receiving meter-rent and fines/towing revenue. Impark has a heavy incentive in aggressively writing violation tickets. It is an exploitative practice that preys on ill people and their loved ones. Impark also has the responsibility of maintain-

ing the lots, work that includes filling potholes. At this point, Impark is refusing to comply with a Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy request from Hospital Pay Parking, a request that has been approved by the Provincial Health Authority. The request asks for the figures from 2018 on how many vehicles have been ticketed, how many vehicles have been towed and how many potholes have been filled. The group is attempting to ascertain how much money has been milked from patients going to hospitals. It’s simply not fair to expect patients or visitors to have to pay when they come to hospital when they are suffering personal anxiety, stress or grief. Put bluntly, a parking charge is often the last thing people need. I will be calling on Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone, Minister of Health Adrian Dix and Interior Health to end pay parking at Royal Inland Hospital. Katharine Ferguson Kamloops

KAMLOOPS COUNCIL NEEDS TO HELP US ALL GROW GARDENS Editor: Re: Christopher Foulds’ column of March 8 (‘More food for thought’): I am in huge agreement with rethinking former councillor Donovan Cavers’ motion that called for more edible planting in Kamloops. I moved back to this area because spring, summer and fall is longer and there is a vast amount of growing options. Kamloopsians can grow just about anything, given a small

I am so proud of my former strata, which defied popular thinking and built four-foot-by-eight-foot garden beds for each unit and increased the amount of viable fruit and growing area. We also took our chain link fence and planted bee-friendly plants and

scarlet runner beans. The amount of produce in each bed was astonishing. Sadly, from speaking with residents of other stratas, I was told they couldn’t do likewise because it was deemed unsightly. I grew enough vegetables to freeze, make stews and soups and share. Kamloops can run with its Tournament Capital name, but we can also grow enough fresh food to teach and support

a whole new generation. Brock Middle School has converted its concrete outside area to a sustainable growing area where youth can pick food/snacks from a garden. I believe that new Kamloops council should make it easier to promote new food users. The first step is to encourage developers, as part of their permit, to promote sustainable gardens.

OPINION Defining the meaning, purpose of community

C

ommunity — what does it mean? What does it look like? Who is part of it? How is it built? These are some of the questions I’ve been asking myself and others since November. My campaign statement contained the phrase “Committed to Community.” As we work through our strategic planning and budget process, I’m also contemplating this question from a governance perspective. The strategic plan of council provides the structural framework that then guides staff direction and activity. These activities reach our neighbourhoods and our lives on a daily basis, so taking the time to consider this direction and the intention behind it is critical. I believe I can speak for all of council in saying we are looking forward to completing the process soon (hopefully in April) and acting on our shared four-year vision. The strategic plan is only one way to impact neighbourhoods and the daily experience of life in our city.

SADIE HUNTER View From

CITY HALL We all have the ability to shape the character of our community through our everyday actions and interactions. Just before Christmas break, Coun. Arjun Singh gifted all new councillors with the book Deepening Community by Paul Born of the Tamarack Institute. Getting to know your neighbours seems like a common sense approach to creating a sense of place and belonging — and it is. But Born highlighted a few things I hadn’t considered in great detail before, namely the impact small actions have and the role intentionality plays in building community. Just as consistent and mindful decisions to eat healthier and exercise more result in numerous

long-term health benefits, so, too, do intentional and repeated choices to engage. I think we’re all guilty of spending time looking down at our phones when we are out in the community, using our time waiting in line or going about our day immersed in an ongoing quest to attain optimal efficiency and productivity. Over the long term, this can result in feeling fatigued and disconnected, with a complete separation between our digital self and physical sense of place. During the last two years, I’ve made an intentional effort to keep my phone tucked away during conversations and while I am out running errands. It’s usually on silent to help me avoid the Pavlov effect in acting on the compulsion to immediately respond to every ding and ring. I reflected on this effort (among other things) as I read Born’s book. This small and repeated act has undoubtedly enhanced my connection to community, my overall feeling of presence and my quality of life. It created innumer-

able tiny windows of time to connect, observe and learn, which cumulatively resulted in a large shift that, in turn, resulted in a tangible positive impact. Our personal contribution to building community doesn’t always have to look like a large time commitment to being part of groups or an association (though, these are also very important). It can be as simple as choosing to look up and share a smile, engage in small talk or hold the door. These aren’t trivial actions. These intentional moments of being present create the connections that move connected communities forward. It reminds me of the saying: Every grain of sand is equally important in creating a beach. I look forward to continued exploration of answers to my opening questions and am excited to continue to connect and to build our community together. Please feel free to connect with me any time — digitally or in person. Sadie Hunter is a Kamloops councillor. Her email is shunter@ kamloops.ca

Stuart Wood plans ongoing MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

Multiple hurdles still need to be cleared as plans to transform the former Stuart Wood elementary in downtown Kamloops into a cultural centre proceed. The City of Kamloops and Tk’emlups te Secwepemc continue to develop an operating agreement for the project, with the city needing the province to lift a condition of use on the property. Council on Tuesday agreed to spend $200,000 on design plans that will help secure grant funding. “This is an important project for the both of us,” Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian said during a community-to-community forum between the band and city on Monday. Christian told KTW he is optimistic the agreement will be signed before the end of June, describing the document as “fairly lengthy” and detailed.

How the space will be allocated and how much money each partner will would put into the development are part of the discussions with the band, Christian said. In 2018, Tk’emlups and the city completed a conceptual planning process that outlined what will be included in the building. Christian said the facility is expected to feature history of the City of Kamloops, Tk’emlups te Secwepemc, the railroads and Hudson’s Bay Company, along with references to the Secwepemc language. Creating a garden outside the building featuring Indigenous plants is also planned. Christian said the city is looking to fund as much of the project as possible through grants. “There’s a lot of work that needs to be done in that building to repurpose it,” he said. The city plans to move the Kamloops Museum and Archives into Stuart Wood and have retail opportunities for artisans. It has

also already removed some outbuildings from the property and added fencing in anticipation of the project moving ahead. The building has been owned by the City of Kamloops since the 1800s, but under the condition that it be used exclusively as a school. “We asked [the province] if this plan would constitute a school and they said no,” Christian said. “So what has to happen is we have to give the title back to the province, they have to then remove the codicil (condition of use) and consult with TTS and then reissue the title as a facility that could be used as a cultural site.” Christian said he has heard from staff that the province is backlogged when it comes to nixing the codicil. “Once we get a letter of understanding in place and once we get the title and all that, this is an opportunity to showcase the partnerships between the municipality and the local First Nation,” Christian said.

Many of us have a kidney to spare — do you? Vic Morin and Colleen Bruce are raising awareness about live organ transplants as Morin suffers from chronic kidney disease and requires a kidney transplant. For more information on live kidney donation, contact the donor nurse co-ordinator at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver by calling 1-877-922-9822 or emailing donornurse@ providencehealth.bc.ca.

olleen Bruce and her husband, Vic Morin, have been trying to raise awareness about live organ transplants. It’s not just because March is National Kidney Month and March 15 is World Kidney Day. It’s because Morin is suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) and needs a kidney transplant. “There’s two major factors that lead to CKD,” Bruce said. “One of them is high blood pressure, which is what he had, untreated too long. And the other one is diabetes. Those are the two major ones.” “My problem was from quite a while ago,” Morin told KTW. “I had high blood pressure, but it wasn’t

treated properly and it damaged the filter system.” Though Morin’s situation isn’t currently desperate, the couple has have been urged to start the process of finding a live donor as it can take some time to connect with a correct match. In addition, once

kidney functions start to diminish, they don’t improve again. “Last June, his numbers started to really drop,” Bruce said. “He’s at 19 GFR (glomerular filtration rate) and that’s your kidney function, so it’s like a percentage of what your kidney’s doing.” A GFR score of 15 or

less is considered kidney failure. Since Morin’s brother and wife weren’t suitable candidates for kidney donation, he has had to start looking to a larger circle of potential donors, which has been challenging. “It’s very awkward to go and try to ask someone to be a donor,”

Morin said. “That’s the hardest part.” Added Bruce: “Reaching out to his family, his nieces and nephews, he’s really having a difficult time with that.” They are hoping to draw attention to the Kidney Paired Donation Program, a unique system that allows you

to donate a kidney to someone you know, even if your kidney may not actually be a match. Donors and their recipients are entered into the Canadian Transplant Registry, a secure database maintained by Canadian Blood Services. The registry compares medical informa-

tion and identifies pairs that might be able to exchange donors. Bruce and Morin also want people to know it is possible to live long and healthy lives with only one kidney. “That would be the thing, to take the fear away from being a donor,” Morin said. “Because I think if people understood that quite clearly, they may not hesitate as much.” For more information on live kidney donation, contact the donor nurse co-ordinator at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver by calling 1-877-922-9822 or emailing donornurse@ providencehealth. bc.ca. Anybody interested in donating specifically to Morin, note his full legal name is Louis Victor Morin. All inquiries and eligibility tests are confidential and donors can change their minds at any time.

y daughter was still in the

womb when we learned she would only have a single kidney. Suffice it to say, it was shocking news, but thanks to the nurses at BC Children’s Hospital, it didn’t result in a fullblown panic. We were told people with only one kidney could live long and healthy lives. Some of them even go their whole lives never knowing there was anything different about them. When my daughter was about a year old, we brought her back to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver to test her kidney function. With just the one functioning kidney, it was important to know it was working well. Thankfully, it was. I can remember watching the screen that was monitoring the flow of urine in her system and how I could see the one good kidney was lit up with activity as the urine moved through it and on to the bladder. The other kidney was just a shadow. That girl is now seven years old and will turn eight in May. To look at her, you’d have no idea there was

a shrivelled and dead organ inside of her. But there is. It doesn’t really impact her in any way. Granted, there are some things we need to watch out for as her parents. Contact sports are probably not a great idea and urinary-tract infections need to be dealt with quickly. After all, if anything were to happen to that one kidney, she doesn’t have a backup. Then again, kids with asthma must watch out for certain activities, as do children with diabetes or certain allergies. Heck, all I had as a kid was a pair of glasses and even I had to be careful (a kindergarten accident involving a parachute left me with a scar on my eyebrow that you can see to this day). March is National Kidney Month and

World Kidney Day is on Thursday, March 14. It’s a good time to think about those people who need a kidney transplant to survive — something my daughter may face one day. And it’s a good time to think about how being a live organ donor won’t impair your health. All you have to do is look at my daughter and you’ll see just how much living you can accomplish with fewer organs than you’re supposed to have.

Carbon park to open in fall MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A new park in Aberdeen geared toward educating people on climate science and Indigenous ecological knowledge is expected to be completed this fall. City of Kamloops sustainability services supervisor Glen Cheetham and Tk’emlups te Secwepemc archeologist Leslie LeBourdais provided an update on the the West Highlands Carbon Park on Monday during a community-to-community forum between the city and the First Nations band. The project was approved by Kamloops council in July and most of the park’s infrastructure has already been completed on the site of the former Aberdeen Hills Golf Links. Cheetham told KTW the main focus now is incorporating all the

environmental information that will be used in the park, including weaving in a First Nations perspective provided by the band. Tk’emlups prepared a comprehensive report listing traditional plants and their technical uses, as well as a traditional story that will all be showcased in the park, Cheetham said. “Right now, we’re really working on developing and refining the education program,” Cheetham told the councils, noting the city continues to work on those materials with Tk’emlups staff as the grand opening draws near. LeBourdais said the band is enthusiastic about collaborating on the project. “I think it’s a great example of the work between our organizations and advancing cultural understanding and environmental sustainability,” LeBourdais said. Educational signs, brochures and electronic media will explore

the major themes of climate change, environmental stewardship and ecosystem protection. The park includes a 35-plot community garden, which is nearly complete, as well as a finished amphitheatre located between two soccer fields adjacent the West Highlands Community Centre (the former golf course clubhouse). The amphitheatre is expected to be used by students, sports teams, small wedding parties and park visitors. “There’s still some vegetation to do in the spring and some tree planting, [but] the main piece is completing the education component,” Cheetham said. The $129,000 project is largely being funded through grants. TD Bank Group and TD Friends of the Environment donated $79,000 and CN gave $25,000. The city will pitch in the other $25,000 from its parks capital fund.

Teen’s lawyer will seek bail A Kamloops teenager who has been in custody since allegedly threatening to attack students and staff at a city high school will soon seek bail.

The girl has been held at a youth psychiatric facility since her arrest in early February. She is undergoing testing for a court-

ordered report. The girl and a teenaged boy were arrested on Feb. 7 and charged with conspiracy to commit assault with a weapon.The boy was granted bail on Feb. 13. Provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act prevent the publication of any information that could identify the teens, including the school they attend and allegedly targeted. Both teens maintain troubling social media accounts. The boy’s Instagram name is a

reference to a prominent U.S. school shooting and his profile includes images and text relating to death and mass slayings. The girl’s Instagram page includes a photo appearing to depict a school shooting in progress. The girl appeared by video from the psychiatric facility during a brief hearing in Kamloops provincial court on Monday, during which her lawyer said she will be seeking her release on bail once the report is completed.

The family of a longtime Kamloops man had no idea he had left almost $40,000 in donations for city charities when he died earlier this year in Saskatchewan. Graham Noble hadn’t told anyone he took out three life insurance policies for donations to Kamloops organizations — including $11,025 for Interior Community Services. The other donations were for $13,000 for the B.C. Interior Community Foundation and $15,000 for the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation. “I don’t know what he wanted the money to be for,” said Sharon Noble, Graham’s widow after nearly 55 years of marriage. “He certainly always enjoyed helping children.” Graham Noble died on Jan. 26. He and Sharon moved from Kamloops to Saskatchewan in 1999, but not before the family left its mark on the city. “Graham was instrumental in forming the Kamloops Foundation, which is now the B.C. Interior Community Foundation, and he helped start the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation,” Sharon said. “He was the kind of man who always wanted to help people. But he didn’t brag about it. He didn’t ever say, ‘Oh, this is me, look at what I’ve done.’ He was a quiet man of deeds. He did good deeds, but quietly.” Graham Noble worked as a financial advisor and later invested in real estate. Sharon said her husband had a big heart. “He was a very caring man,” she said. “I found out a lot more about that after he died. People came to me and said, ‘Oh, he did this for me, he did that for me.’”

Time change may be on the last ticks of the clock He said if any one of the three states acted alone, it would have a significant impact on B.C. Horgan said B.C. can switch to a single time zone without federal approval, but the states require an act of Congress. “I understand that all of our Pacific Coast jurisdictions are currently considering the same issue, albeit in different ways,” Horgan said in his letter to Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and California Gov. Gavin Newsom. “It is clear, however, that a change in any of these jurisdictions in our time zone would have significant impacts on B.C.,” the letter states,. “It makes sense to me that we move in unison on this matter.” In November 2018, California voters over-

DEAR EDITOR

KTW reporter Todd Sullivan spoke at the weekend’s Write-a-Thon at Kamloops United Church, giving advice on the best way to write a letter to the editor, keeping in mind length, taste, clarity and humour. Sullivan was also taking part in the Write-a-Thon, working for hours on an episodic novel he is writing. The Write-a-Thon was an event organized by the Kamloops Society for the Written Arts, with some of the proceeds going to stage the Words Alive writers’ festival in the fall.

Premier John Horgan said he checking with the province’s neighbours in the United States about possibly moving to a unified time zone. Horgan said as B.C. prepares to shift its clocks to daylight time on Sunday, March 10 — springing ahead by one hour — he wants to explore the possibility of California, Washington, Oregon and B.C. being on the same time all year long. He said he has written to the governors of the three states, asking for updates on their views about time changes. Horgan said the issue is a matter of debate in B.C., but noted change isn’t imminent, even though he believes it makes sense if the three states and B.C. act together on the issue.

But for the vote to become law, it requires two-thirds approval by the state legislature in Sacramento. Assembly Bill 7, created from Proposition 7, remains at the committee stage. If it is passed, it would then need the governor’s signature, followed by U.S. Congress approval in Washington, D.C. In Oregon, Senate Bill 320 aims to also keep that state on daylight saving time year-round, as do two bills in Washington state — Senate Bill 5139 and House Bill 1196.

why daylight saving time exists. Daylight saving time was first implemented in Canada more than 100 years ago as a way to conserve energy; however, about 60 per cent of British Columbians incorrectly believe its purpose is to provide more sunlight during waking hours. Others believe it exists to provide more working hours, while some just think it costs them an hour of sleep — with 35 per cent saying the time shift has a negative effect on them. Fifty-six per cent British Columbians would prefer if B.C. remained on standard time year-round. Several studies have found daylight saving time electricity savings are negligible — or nonexistent. In fact, a recent study in Alberta found that it actually has the opposite effect, increasing energy use. This fall, BC Hydro is planning to release a new report after further research and analysis on daylight saving time, which will examine whether the practice saves electricity in B.C.

Couple opens city’s first private cannabis store THE SHORE CANNABIZ SHOP JOINS GOVERNMENT-RUN STORE AS ONLY LEGAL POT STORES JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops coupleturned-pioneer pot entrepreneurs opened the doors to the first private cannabis store on Friday morning, describing a store selling previously illegal products similar to that of a neighbourhood convenience store — a mom and pop shop. The moment was many months, background checks and levels of government paperwork in the making, culminating with the hanging of a business licence on the wall at 399 Tranquille Rd. in North Kamloops. “This is once in a lifetime,” Chris Lyth told KTW. “It’s not very often something like this comes along.” Chris and Nadine Lyth are the duo behind The Shore Cannabiz Shop. Chris has a retail background in jewelry and Nadine is a retired Thompson Rivers University program assistant. They began drumming up the possibility of getting into the burgeoning cannabis industry about a year ago, prior to legalization, and submitted an application to the province last August. Their application was then referred to the city, which went before city council in October and received opposition from a medical cannabis dispensary and its users across the street. Council, however, approved the store’s application.

While it had surpassed a major hurdle, given the opposition, the application had still not yet been approved. It then went back to the province, where final due diligence included intense checks into the couple’s background, in addition to staff background checks. “It’s a really rigorous process,” Chris Lyth said. “You have to bare your soul.” Several customers made their way into the 800-square-foot store after it opened on Friday morning. On offer is a variety of cannabis strains, from high THC to mid-range THC, CBD products, flower, oils, capsules, seeds, sprays and a small amount of accessories. Customer Sarah Rhode lives in the neigh-

bourhood and wanted to be one of the first customers, purchasing a gram of sativa. The longtime cannabis user liked the store’s selection. Asked about the prices, she said the cost is “familiar” to what she has experienced in the past. “It’s good for me because I know what I’m getting and I can trust that I’m getting a good product, rather than stuff I’ve purchased before on the street,” she said. Jakob Fehr has visited the governmentowned BC Cannabis Store, which opened in the Columbia Place Shopping Centre in Sahali on legalization day, Oct. 17, and said The Shore Cannabiz Shop is a better location for him. “Getting up there, it’s taking the bus,” Fehr said.

Illegal shop remains open

A handful of other applicants are awaiting provincial approval in the North Kamloops area. Kamloops council has thus far approved 15 cannabis stores, with many shops slated to open in the Tranquille corridor and downtown areas. City property-use inspector Dave Jones noted applications are also beginning to come in for outlying areas. Cannabis stores have been approved by the city in Valleyview and in the SmartCentre strip mall in Southgate that has Walmart as its anchor. Jones expects

KTW/Cain’s Kids Page

between 20 to 25 stores to eventually open in Kamloops. “I would hope that maybe in March, April, May, kind of one a month will start opening up,” he said. “We have no idea until we hear from the province what’s happening.” Chris Lyth said room remains in Kamloops’ cannabis industry. “If you look at the liquor business here, there’s plenty of cold beer and wine stores and liquor stores in the city that work quite well together, so I don’t see much difference for cannabis stores,” he said.

Carl Anderson’s Canadian Safe Cannabis Society remains in operation across the street from The Shore Cannabiz Shop. City property-use inspector Dave Jones said the store and many others have operated in the same capacity for many years and even helped to legalize cannabis. Now, though, Anderson’s shop is too close to The Shore Cannabiz Shop to become a legal recreational cannabis store. City regulations stipulate cannabis stores must be at least 150 metres from one another. “It’s unfortunate that Mr. Anderson across the street didn’t seek out a way to become a legalized cannabis store,” Jones said, it will be up to the province to determine if it will seek voluntary compliance from Anderson. Jones said he will be speaking to the province about potential plans and any instructions given to the RCMP. Prior to legalization, Kamloops had 13 illegal stores, Jones said, with all but two closing. One has reopened under different branding. “I’ll be paying those a visit,” he said. “I’ll be advising them that they need to cease operation.”

Bright Eye Brewing set to tap its first keg FOLLOWING CITY COUNCIL’S APPROVAL ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON, THE NORTH SHORE’S FIRST BREWPUB SHOULD BE OPEN THIS SPRING JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

North Kamloops will see its first brewpub this spring. The liquor licence for a brewery in The Station on Tranquille

development called Bright Eye Brewing was approved by city council on Tuesday afternoon. Bright Eye Brewing was seeking council authorization for a 76-seat lounge and a 34-seat patio in a

2,040-square metre commercial area on the corner of Tranquille Road and Clapperton Road. With approval in pocket, the brewery is expected to open in April or May on the ground level of The

Station, around the same time when residents are expected to be moving in upstairs. “It’s a very exciting thing for Tranquille, it’s a very exciting thing for the city,” Bright Eye Brewing partner Mitchell Forgie said.

“Kamloops as a whole is becoming an exciting beer town.” Forgie, who is also owner of the popular Red Beard Cafe a few blocks north on Tranquille, is one of four partners behind Bright Eye Brewing.

He lends his restaurateur clout to Richard Marken, Bryan Craig and Tyler Windsor, the latter two being the brains behind the brews. They began experimenting with making beer three years ago and have since brewed about 200 recipes. The branding is also eponymously named

for the pair. “Bry, Ty. Bright Eye,” Forgie said. “That’s where the name comes from.” Plans are for between seven to 10 beers on tap, none of which will have permanent tenure on the menu. The brewery will also serve food, with a menu to be determined.

With some funding in, SD73 focuses on wish list MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Four buses earmarked in School District 73’s long-range facilities plan, along with dust collectors and a boiler, are being funded by the provincial government — and the school district has its sights set on a few larger requests this spring. The Ministry of Education has announced $1.8 million in funding for the Kamloops-Thompson school district, which will be spent on the dust-collector systems in trades classrooms at Logan Lake and NorKam secondary schools. It will also be spent on a new energyefficient condensing boiler at Bert Edwards

Science and Technology School. The additional four buses that will serve new routes in the 2019-2020 school year were pegged by SD73 at a cost of about $560,000 — funds that now will not have to

come out of local reserve funds. The $1.7 million received by SD73 is part of $206 million the province is supplying school districts for energy upgrades, maintenance projects and new buses. The provincial funding comes in response to the SD73’s 2019-2020 five-year capital plan, submitted to the education ministry prior to June 30, 2018. The money is for small capital items that are funded through the ministry’s school enhancement program, the carbon neutral capital program and the bus acquisition program. The district has another opportunity this June to submit additional capital

requests and plans to ask the government for money to build an addition at Westmount Elementary (estimated cost of $8 million), build a new school in the Pineview Valley area (estimated cost of $18 million), construct a new gym and more classrooms at South Kamloops secondary (estimated cost of $20 million) and build a new K-12 school in Sun Peaks — all priorities identified in SD73’s facilities plan. SD73 is still awaiting an announcement from the province regarding approved funding to expand overcrowded Valleyview secondary at an estimated cost of $24 million, money SD73 secretary-treasurer Kelvin Stretch said he is confident will be coming from the ministry.

It's About Balance Much of life is about balance. Too strict of a diet tends to lead to its failure. Too much indulging in one area can lead to complications in another. As my wife Amanda puts it, she works out to stay healthy and… to say yes to dessert. Everything in moderation. Investing needs balance as well. Eric and I have created our own "Investment Philosophy and 10 Core Beliefs" that we use to manage money. We believe these are 10 evidence based strategies that can help reduce risk and enhance returns. One of our core beliefs is to rebalance portfolios on a regular basis. Asset allocation is the proportion of investments traditionally invested across cash, bonds and stocks. It is seen as the cornerstone to investing (also a core belief we can discuss in greater detail another time). For us, investors should align their portfolio and asset allocation to their personal investment objectives, risk tolerance and time horizon. Extensive research has shown that asset al-

location accounts for roughly 90% of a portfolio's return. Over time, investment returns for stocks, bonds and cash will vary and can skew one's portfolio, highlighting the need to rebalance. Let's assume Jane has a $500,000 portfolio invested in 60% equities (stocks) and 40% income (bonds). According to TD Economics, the estimated return for stocks is 7% and bonds is 3%. Without factoring fees, taxes etc. Jane would have a projected return of 5.4% a year. After 5 years, her portfolio would grow to $652,620. Because of the stronger performance in equities, it is nearly 65% of Jane's investments. Positive performance is a good thing, but if left unchecked, it can unintentionally push Jane outside her desired objectives and risk tolerance. The solution is to rebalance a portfolio back to its original asset allocation target. That means trimming 5% off equities and adding 5% to bonds, thereby returning Jane's portfolio back to original 60/40 objective. A few benefits to rebalancing: 1. Outperforms buy and hold According to research by Craig Israelsen, PhD, an annually rebalanced portfolio outperforms a buy and hold portfolio 78% of the time over rolling 20 year periods.

2. Lowers risk BNY Melon did analysis from 1979 to 2017 and found that systematic rebalancing lowered the risk, or standard deviation, by 7%. It also increased a portfolio's value by a modest 0.2% per year. 3. Forces discipline Investing is an emotional process and we can be reluctant to trim our winners. Systematic rebalancing removes emotion and keeps a methodical process to managing one's portfolio. Emotions often are the biggest downfall to an investor's success. 4. Takes advantage of market volatility Rebalancing can potentially enhance returns during market volatility. During a correction, this would mean buying more assets that have fallen in value and selling those that have held up well. Or put in other words, one would increase potential to buy low and sell high. The past few months have been a rollercoaster ride for investors. As market volatility increases, so does the possibility of one's portfolio potentially straying from their objectives. It may be time to review your portfolio and see if any adjustments are needed. As always, we encourage consulting with an investment professional. Until next time… Invest Well. Live Well.

The Kamloops Blazers defeated the Kelowna Rockets in the Lake City on Saturday night to pull within four points of the team they are chasing for a playoff spot. Kyrell Sopotyk and Jermaine Loewen scored for Kamloops and Dylan Garand saved 27 shots to record the win in net. Coupled with a 2-1 shootout victory over the Rockets in Kamloops on Friday night, the Blazers’ winning weekend has them at 57 points on the season, four points back of Kelowna.

The Blazers hosted Spokane on Tuesday night and will play visiting Victoria on Wednesday. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for results. Kelowna sits in third place in the B.C. Division, which is a playoff spot. The two Western Conference wild card playoff slots will go to Tri City and Seattle. Kamloops has four games remaining in the regular season. They were slated to play Spokane on Tuesday, after KTW’s press deadline, and will host

Victoria on Wednesday. The Blazers will finish the regular season with a homeand-home series against Prince George next weekend, March 15 at Sandman Centre and March 16 in P.G. Kelowna has three games left — at home to Spokane, followed by a home-and-home matchup against Vancouver. The third-place team in the B.C. Division — which will be either Kelowna or Kamloops — will play Victoria in the first round of the playoffs, with the Royals having home-ice advantage in the best-of-seven series.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Roy Frederick Ware April 24, 1926 – March 5, 2019

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Husband, Dad, Pampa and Great-Pampa Roy Frederick Ware, on March 5, 2019. Roy is survived by his loving wife Esther, three daughters Debra Kilroe (Norbert), Brenda McLean (Bill) and Laurel Rose (Pat), seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Benny Leonard Purnell July 18, 1941 – February 6, 2019

It is with profound sadness that we announce Benny’s passing on February 6, 2019.

Roy was trained as a a sniper in WWII and guarded prisoners of war in Lethbridge, Alberta where he met his beautiful wife of 72 years. He was an avid gardener, fisherman and hunter. Roy started work at CP Rail at the age of 16 and retired when he was 55. He was known by his family for his great sense of humour, kindness and his loving ways. He will be sorrowfully missed by all of us. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at the Ponderosa Lodge for their loving care. Prayers for Roy will be held Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Holy Family Parish, 2797 Sunset Drive, Kamloops. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 11:00 am at Holy Family Parish. There will be refreshments and a light luncheon following Mass. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation in memory of Roy Frederick Ware. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Ben is survived by his dearly loved wife Carole (née Olson) of 45 years, his twin sister Betty (Dale), his brother Tony (Wendy), brothersin-law Droy (Sharole) and Kevan, children Nancy (Dale), Robin, Guy (Lorylynn), Cathy (Darrell), John, Bret (Monique) and Heather, as well as many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Ben was predeceased by his beloved parents Leonard and Violet, his parents-in-law Janel and Orville, and his step-father Orville. Ben was an imaginative and insightful entrepreneur; he created and ran many successful businesses over his lifetime, but always remained humble about his achievements. When confronted with challenges or set-backs, Ben always maintained his enduring resilience and positive attitude. To paraphrase a motto attributed to Sir Winston Churchill: Ben had the attitude that “the key to success was going from a disappointment to the next opportunity with no loss of enthusiasm”. Above all of his successes, Ben was foremost a provider of unwavering love and support to

Love Always Remembers

With overwhelming 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

not only his family, but to his countless friends. He had a huge heart; loved large but showed it quietly. Ben also had a wonderful sense of humour, an ability to make us all laugh and a rare gift of not taking himself too seriously: his hearty laughs were contagious and he always made family and friend get-togethers memorable and cherished.

Pennies

From Heaven

by Charles L. Mashburn I found a penny today, Just laying on the ground But it’s not just a penny,

“Automobiles, Planes & Trains”: Ben was fascinated by many modes of transportation. He could identify a car’s make, model and year by its front grill; after flying with his father for many years, Ben earned his private pilot’s licence when he was 20 years old and, in 1997, he acquired a 1950s CN rail car, “The Bonaventure”, which he refurbished to its original grandeur.

This little coin I’ve found. “Found” pennies come from heaven, That’s what my Grandpa told me He said angels toss them down; Oh, how I loved that story. He said when an angel misses you,

While he left this earth far too early for all of us to let him go, we celebrate that he lived life to the fullest!

They toss a penny down

A Celebration of Ben’s Life will be held at a date and location to be later announced.

Make a smile out of your frown

Ben’s family would like to extend their gratitude to his medical team, especially Dr. Swart. In lieu of flowers, a memorial tribute may be made to a charity of your choice. Condolences may be sent to Ben’s family at Drake Cremation & Funeral Services at www.drakecremation.com

Howard Sidney Baker

October 22, 1923 - March 11, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a great husband, dad, grandpa, great-grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. Howard was born in Wapella, Saskatchewan into a large loving family before moving to BC where Kamloops became his home. After various odd jobs at age 18 he signed up for military duty, as many young men did at the time. He served as a gunner in the 14th Field Division, Royal Canadian Army and was active from 1941 to 1945. Upon his return he married his wife Agnes of 40 years. They raised four children in Dallas. Howard retired as a conductor for CP Rail. He made many life-long friends there and saw them right up until his passing. Howard had many hobbies, reading, gardening, camping, fishing, hunting, travelling and walking, to name a few. He was very active in his retirement years: walking along Rivers Trail at Pioneer Park and McArthur Island. He rarely missed a day of walking and in his 90s he was still walking at TCC and using resistance machines. He always said “you have to keep moving”. Howard was an avid Toronto Blue Jays fan and rarely missed a game.

Sometimes just to cheer you up,

So don’t pass by that penny, When you’re feeling blue It may be a penny from heaven That an angel tossed to you.

(250) 377-8225

He had a gentle understanding way about him and made those close to him feel special. Family was everything to him. He regularly had visits with his kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends. Howard had a great sense of humour and enjoyed a long life. He never complained about anything and made the best of everything. Dad always saw the good in people and was nonjudgemental. He was humble and thoughtful of others. Predeceased by his wife Agnes in 1992 and siblings Eva, Francis, Hazel, Ethel, Margaret, Ted and Tom. He is survived by his siblings Bunny James, Pat Price and Bob Baker and numerous nieces and nephews, his children Louise Christie (Mark), Vickie VanJoff (Jeff), Brenda Edgeworth (Ron), Bruce Baker (Nancy), grandchildren Mandy (Grant), Tara (Brent), Ben (Penni), Cheryl (Jen), Jodi (Dan), Megan (David), Jennifer (Chris), Tyler and Maya, great-grandchildren Cole, Emily, Noah, Travis, Linden, Lucas, Grace and Zack.

1953 – 2019

November 3, 1939 - March 10, 2019

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.

Gordon Kelly Rowland It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Gordon Kelly Rowland in Kamloops on March 5, 2019. Kelly was born on February 26, 1931 the only son of Helen and Walter Rowland in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. He married Shirley in 1950 in North Battleford. They had three children - Jeff (Carolyn), Mary (Gerry) and John (Cynthia). Kelly had four grandchildren Chris (Sonya) Rowland, Alexis (Ryan) Gunderson, Kelsey Peppler and Sarah Rowland. Kelly was very proud of his grandchildren and he enjoyed a loving relationship with all of them. Upon graduating from high school, Kelly worked for CN Railway for 15 years. He started in the freight sheds. They moved to Biggar where Kelly continued to work for CN and he became a brakeman. When his family moved to Kindersley in 1964 he took a brief hiatus from railroading, when he purchased and operated “Kelly Agencies Insurance”. In 1967, his family moved to Prince George. He pursued a number of jobs before returning to the job he really loved, railroading. He began his illustrious career with BC Rail, transferring to Fort St. John and North Vancouver, working his way up to becoming the Assistant Manager of Operations before his retirement in 1990. Upon retirement Kelly and Shirley began their Shuswap adventure in Blind Bay, Sorrento. Next they re-located to Chase before finally settling in Kamloops. Kelly found himself back on the rails once again when he began volunteering with the “Wildlife Express” at the B.C. Wildlife Park. Kelly’s greatest satisfaction in life was being with family, his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the love of his life and he of theirs. He was a gentleman who will always be remembered for his big heart, his kindness and generosity. Family and friends will remember him fondly as the ultimate storyteller. He had endless stories of his formative years in North Battleford, tales of family, and of course a broad history his railroad days. The family wishes to thank Dr. Wynne for his kindness and understanding. They especially want to thank the staff at Pine Grove Manor whose care and compassion are unsurpassed. They truly are ‘Angels’. There will be no service at Kelly’s request. A family gathering will take place in early summer. In lieu of flowers, donations in Kelly’s memory can be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM In Loving Memory of

Julia Mary Appley-Mitra (Written by Julia) Born May 11, 1938 at 11:40 pm at South Anston, England. The only daughter of Ivy (née Revitt) and Harrison Rich Appley. Julia had two brothers, Michael Revitt (Maureen) and Richard James (Barbara). After attending college in Rotherham, Julia trained as a paediatric nurse at Sheffield Sick Children’s Hospital, R.S.C.N. in 1959. Following her marriage to Diptendra N. Mitra in 1961 the family immigrated to Canada in 1964, first to Montreal, later to Prince George and finally to Kamloops in 1969. Julia leaves three sons, Devendra Robert, Nicholas Kumar, Christopher Chandra and his wife Alisa, two grandchildren, Casie Leigh (Adam) Hunt and Keenan Noel. Her family were the centre of her universe, a constant joy, source of amusement, delight and immense pride. Julia has now moved on, to a plain of pure love, enlightenment and joy, where she expects that some of life’s mysteries will be solved - things like quicksand, spelling and punctuation. Julia would have liked to have been a ballet dancer; music was essential to her. She derived joy from so many sources: sailing, the sound of wind cracking the sails, thunderstorms, the ocean, wild crashing waves, walking in the rain, smells of fall,

Hugh David Fossett

February 15, 1938 – March 6, 2019 Hugh passed away at the Views at St. Joseph’s, Comox on March 6, 2019. He is predeceased by his mother Dorothy Fossett, father John Fossett, sisters Dorothy Gulliford and Edith Cavazzi, as well as nephew Mark Gulliford. He is survived by his wife Gwen Fossett, sons Don (Lisa) Fossett, Bruce (Joanne) Fossett, daughter Debbie (Dean) Harms, grandchildren Melissa, Jessica (Matt), Jennifer, Darrell, Katrina, Nicole, Ava and Jason, great-grandchildren James, Addison and Grace; brother John (Connie – deceased) Fossett, sister Jenny (Alder – deceased) Comozetto, nieces and nephews Janice (Jim), Elaine (Doug), Doug, Harvey (Barb), Cyndra (Gerry), Darrell (Sheila), Maureen (Ralph) and Tammé (Tim). Hugh was a Master Warrant Officer in the Canadian Forces for 26 years and a commercial fisherman for seven years. He is a member of the Royal Canadian Legion. In Hugh’s leisure, he enjoyed woodworking, birds, fish and fishing and hockey, both coaching and playing. He was a big man with a big voice and an even bigger heart filled with love for his family. He had a great sense of humour and way of story telling loved by all who knew him. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations to the Cancer Society, Diabetes Society or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated. A private celebration of his life will be held with his immediate family. Special thanks for the compassion and empathy from Dr. Gee and his staff, The Home Care Support (Palliative) team, the ER staff and the Hospice Team for the part each played on this journey. Arrangements entrusted to Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, Courtenay, BC, 250-334-0707

white water rafting, babies, flowers, cheesecake, fast cars, windy days, the smell of newly mown hay, gliding, the clanking of china cups on sunny afternoons, the feel of freshly ironed sheets. Most of all, her lovely boys, her daughter-in-law Alisa, her grandchildren Casie Leigh and Keenan Noel as well as her many treasured friends; Michael, Bob, Gwen, Elizabeth, Joan, Willie, JoEllen, Maureen, Sheila, Jacquie, Arlene, Judy, Jean. Julia felt that life is a game, which must be played. She hated to see things caged and had a defined sense of justice and equality. Julia felt a huge commitment to the cultural arts in Kamloops, that everyone should have access to participating and enjoyment. Her initial involvement was with the Thompson Valley Potter’s Guild where she was a founding member, the Community Arts Council which offered an opportunity for exploration into many aspects of creative arts development in Kamloops such as, Art in The Park, the Kamloops Art Gallery, Children’s Festivals; Regional Arts Events through the Okanagan Mainline Regional Arts Councils. Many summer programs involving youth and emerging artists who performed around town during the summer months. She was the first person to open a permanent office for the Arts Council. Julia worked with Western Canada Theatre – in many capacities - which she enjoyed despite the fact that she was usually exhausted. She made many lasting friendships through WCTC. Following the death of a dear friend who passed from AIDS, Julia was one of three people who

formed the AIDS Society of Kamloops. Later on, Julia worked as Manager of the Cottonwood Community Centre. A job where she was surrounded by young people, babies and children. Most days she loved the job, especially when there was a building project underway. She was one of the rare people who enjoyed writing grant applications (“creative writing” she called it). After retirement Julia found a spot in the sun where she could sit and read and also get a bit of a tan. She very much enjoyed gardening (usually flowers) cooking, baking and making jam and Lemon Curd for her family and friends. Julia asked that should anyone wish, donations may be made to either: Kamloops Community Arts Council, The Julia M. Appley-Mitra Youth Scholarship Fund, or any local Arts organization, or the Kamloops Hospice Association. A wonderful celebration of our mother’s life will be held in spring when the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. Julia had an impact on many people’s lives, and we would like all to attend. If you are interested, please send an email to julia.celebration@gmail.com and we will update you with a date and location.

With membership in the Memorial Society of BC, further discounts are available to you and your family for all services and merchandise at First Memorial. Come and ask us how to join. You will be pleased with our already low family friendly cremation prices.

Never Quit

AUTHOR UNKNOWN

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill When funds are low and debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit. Success is failure turned inside out – The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – It’s when things seem worst that You must not quit!

John Michael (Mike) Grosskurth

In Loving Memory of

Martha Isabella (Isobel) Mary Hannaford

March 5, 1939 - February 19, 2019 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mike Grosskurth.

January 4, 1922 – March 7, 2019

Martha passed away peacefully on March 7, 2019 at the age of 97. She was predeceased by her husband Charles Edward Hannaford and her brother Jack McNair. She is survived by her daughters Judy (Stan) and Marion, grandchildren James, Meghan and Alex, greatgrandchildren Noah, Josh, Levi, Gabe, Naomi, Karly, Bo, Ceraenity and Jake. Martha was born in Burnaby Lake, British Columbia on January 4, 1922 to Clifford and Agnes McNair. She and her brother grew up in the close-knit clan on the West Coast. After working summers in the kitchens of the Wigwam Inn and Emerald Lake Lodge, she graduated from Chilliwack High School and went on to Vancouver Normal School. Graduating with her teaching credentials including certification in handwriting from HB MacLean, Martha returned to Sardis to teach. Summers were spent at Victoria Normal School and the University of Victoria increasing her teaching credentials.

Mike was born in Ontario and grew up in Brampton. After high school, he worked for Ontario Hydro One for eight years. He then moved on to working for an aviation company for the next 24 years, specializing on the wing production line. Mike moved from Ontario to Salmon Arm to start his second career as a barber. He lived and worked in Salmon Arm for 22 years before retiring to Kamloops.

Soon after marrying Charlie, the family moved to Kamloops, BC where Martha was active in the Valleyview Ladies Auxiliary of the Kamloops United Church. Not long after, the family moved to Victoria, BC where Martha restarted her teaching career first as a kindergarten teacher at Esquimalt United Church, then as a substitute teacher in the Greater Victoria School District, then as a teacher at Fairburn Elementary School. After retiring, she was active in View Royal Women’s Institute, Rebekah Lodge and various church groups. In her latter years, Martha moved to Kamloops to be closer to family.

While living in Kamloops, Mike answered God’s call and became an active member of the local Seventh Day Adventist Church. He was also involved in the community, volunteering with various charity groups, most notably the then New Life Mission. Mike was active in the Church and the Mission until personal health issues limited his ability to participate but he never lost his passion for them.

As a committed seeker of knowledge, Martha kept up with current affairs, read a lot, travelled some and continually encourage everyone around her to learn new things and grow. In Sardis to Victoria, she was known as the Maypole lady as she taught many classes of students the art of folk dancing, especially the Maypole.

Mike was predeceased by his parents, brother, wife and daughter.

A Service of Thanksgiving for Martha’s Life will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 1136 6th Street, Kamloops, BC on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 1:30pm. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to a charity of your choice or St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in memory of Martha. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

250-554-2577

He leaves behind a church family who will miss him dearly but look forward to seeing him again when Christ returns. There will be a Memorial Service for Mike at the Kamloops Seventh Day Adventist Church, 364 Fortune Drive, Kamloops on Sunday, March 17, 2019 at 1:00 pm.
