WARMTH FINALLY ARRIVES KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

For those still cold to the touch due to the fifth-coldest February on record that blew Arctic air into March, rejoice — if the forecast for the weekend is correct, if will appear as though summer has arrived in Kamloops. Both Environment Canada and the Weather Network are calling for sunshine and temperatures rising to as high as the upper teens by Tuesday. The expected sudden switch from below normal to above normal temperatures

is the latest quirky change of mind chosen by Mother Nature this winter. The season started warm and dry through November, December and January. Then, on Feb. 3, the Arctic air arrived and simply would not go home — until now. With sunshine and abovezero temperatures gracing the city this week, the warming trend is expected to continue. Environment Canada is calling for sunshine and highs of 10 C on Saturday, 13 C on Sunday, 15 C on Monday and

19 C on Tuesday. The Weather Network is a bit more conservative in its forecast, predicting sunshine and highs of 9 C on Saturday, 11 C on Sunday, 13 C on Monday and 16 C on Tueasday. Overnight lows are expected to be no colder than 0 C. If the forecasts are correct and Kamloops is blessed with double-digit readings this weekend, it will be the first time the mercury has hit 10 C or above since Jan. 27 (when the high was 11.7 C) — a cold stretch of 42 days.

Kamloops Airport is advising local travellers with connecting flights through Calgary and Vancouver to check their bookings in the wake of Canada grounding all Boeing 737 Max 8/9 airplanes and banning the jet from entering its airspace. Transport Minister Marc Garneau made the announcement on Wednesday, acting on safety concerns arising from the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight on March 10 that killed all 157 people on board, including 18 Canadians. Q-400 and Dash 8-300 aircraft fly in and out of Kamloops, travelling to Vancouver and Calgary. “None of the flights operating in and out of Kamloops are impacted by this ban,” airport managing director Ed Ratuski said. But problems may occur if the connecting flights were to be Max 8 planes. He said both Air Canada and West Jet have committed to rebook passengers impacted by the ban, with both airlines offering full refunds and no rebooking fees for those flights. Air Canada has 24 Max 8s in service in Canada and West Jet operates 13. “A lot of them will get notifications via text or email that their flight has been impacted,” Ratuski said, adding that passengers should contact their airlines or travel agents. One Kamloops travel agency told KTW on Wednesday that its agents were busy with calls regarding the planes, in addition to customers’ regular travel plans. Ratuski advised travellers to stay abreast of any further developments and continue to check in with the airlines. “It’s unfortunate this has happened, but the best we can do is help the passengers get redirected if they’re flying out of Kamloops,” said Ratuski, noting a few passengers at Kamloops Airport have already been accomodated by the airlines. Garneau said the decision to ban Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft from arriving, departing or overflying Canadian airspace was made after a review of the evidence about the aircraft. He said the decision was spurred by new data suggesting a similarity between the Ethiopian Airlines crash and the Oct. 29 crash of a Lion Air Boeing 737 Max 8 plane in the Java Sea near Jakarta, Indonesia, that killed all 189 people on board.

CITY RESIDENTS CAN HELP PROTECT THEIR PROPERTY BY KEEPING CATCH BASINS CLEARED OF SNOW & DEBRIS

Council Calendar March 15, 2019 2:30 pm - Civic Operations Committee Kenna Cartwright Boardroom, Operations Centre, 955 Concordia Way

Catch basins, also called storm drains, are part of a City-wide drainage system that helps manage snow melt, run off, and rain.

March 25, 2019 4:00 pm - Development and Sustainability Committee Executive Boardroom, City Hall, 7 Victoria Street West

Catch basins work similarly to the drains inside your home and, when they get clogged with debris, they can back up and cause flooding. Throughout the winter and spring, residents are encouraged to keep catch basins cleared of snow, ice, and other debris. Following a snowfall, residents can also help by shovelling snow onto their property before the curb (when facing the road), rather than shovelling snow onto the curb, where ice can build up and block the system.

March 26, 2019 1:30 pm - Regular Council Meeting 7:00 pm - Public Hearing CANCELLED Council Chambers, 7 Victoria Street West

Finding the catch basins near your home is easier now, thanks to the City's new online mapping tool. Visit Kamloops.ca/Flooding and click on the catch basin map link. Then type in your address to see where the nearest catch basins are located. (Note: You may need to "slide" the results indicator to narrow or widen your search.)

April 2, 2019 10:00 am - Committee of the Whole 1:30 pm - Regular Council Meeting Council Chambers, 7 Victoria Street West

If you see a catch basin that is backed up and won't drain, even after it has been cleared, please call 250-828-3461.

Schools are seeking ways to deal with rise in vaping MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Smoking bans, suspensions and closing bathrooms are among the ways some Kamloops high schools are trying to curb the rise of teenage vaping. Vaping — which is inhaling and exhaling vapour from a battery-powered device, such as e-cigarettes and Juuls — has become prevalent among students and school administrators are taking greater action given the health risks and nicotine addiction associated with the products. For Kamloops principals, part of the problem is that students are vaping inside schools — a policy breach that’s easier to conceal than smoking cigarettes as vape pens are small and can produce next to no odour or emissions. The lack of long-term studies surrounding health impacts and chemicals in the vape juice are among the health concerns of school officials. Westsyde secondary principal Chris Preymak said he temporarily shut down half of its bathrooms in February in order to better supervise the others more regularly as they kept an eye out for vaping students. “Most of it [vaping] is in the bathrooms,” Preymak said, noting the school has also held assem-

blies on the health impacts of vaping. In addition, a letter to parents is being sent out to advise them of the consequences if students are caught vaping. “Students that are in possession of or using vaporizers could receive a suspension from school,” Preymak said, noting some students may also be referred to the school counsellor to deal with possible nicotine addiction. Preymak said traditional smoking in schools isn’t as widespread as vaping. “It’s a lot more challenging to light up a cigarette and take a couple puffs and put it out than it is to have a vape stuck in your sleeve and take a couple puffs on that,” he said. At Valleyview secondary, a letter was sent to parents earlier this month advising that the school will now no longer tolerate students smoking or vaping on or around school property, given emerging health implications of what was once believed to be a harmless activity. Valleyview principal Barb Hamblett said vaping has become more common at the school over the years. “I don’t have any statistics, but visually you can see there’s been an increase,” she said. The Kamloops-Thompson school district held a parent advisory seminar on Tuesday — the

Freshen Up for Spring

first in what will likely be more educational efforts by SD73. Keynote speaker Dr. Marvin Krank, a psychology professor at UBC Okanagan, spoke of the health impacts of vaping, as well as online advertising aimed at youth. In his presentation, Krank said vape juice often contains nicotine and a variety of other chemicals that can be harmful to one’s health. While the health risks may be lower than traditional smoking, that doesn’t mean there’s no risk from vaping, he said, noting all e-cigarettes contain some level of nicotine, which can impact the cardiovascular system and harm brain development in teens. His advice for parents is to lead by example, set clear expectations that they should not use drugs, monitor their behaviour, be empathetic and suggest healthy alternatives. The Kamloops-Thompson school board has also taken notice. “We have serious concerns around how vaping is affecting the health of students. There’s no research on the long-term effects, said board chair Kathleen Karpuk. The district already has a policy banning vaping on school grounds as with traditional smoking. “I’m not sure we can become any stricter than that,” she said.

Accused acquitted in manslaughter trial JAMES DAVID BOND ADMITTED PUNCHING SEAN DUNN THREE TIMES ON DEC. 30, 2016; DUNN WAS FOUND DEAD ON A NORTH KAMLOOPS STREET TIM PETRUK

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

It took jurors less than two days of deliberation to decide on a not-guilty verdict for a Kamloops man charged with manslaughter in connection with a deadly 2016 altercation outside a North Shore bar. The seven-woman, five-man B.C. Supreme Court jury returned

with its verdict on Wednesday afternoon, acquitting 30-year-old James David Bond, who stood trial on one count of manslaughter in relation to the Dec. 30, 2016, death of Sean Dunn, 42. “I don’t have much to say,” Bond said outside court, hugging friends and family who supported him during his seven-day trial. “It’s a tragic situation. I’m thankful it’s over. I’m

sorry for the family. They have to live with this forever and I do, too.” Dunn was found dead on a sidewalk along Wood Street near Tranquille Road after being punched multiple times in the head by Bond. He and Bond were among a group of people drinking at The Duchess bar in the hours leading up to Dunn’s death. Prosecutors

described Bond as a jealous assailant who attacked a man flirting with his girlfriend, but a number of witnesses described Dunn harassing the woman throughout the night. Bond admitted punching Dunn, but said he did so to defend his girlfriend from Dunn’s unwanted advances. Jurors went into their deliberations on Tuesday without knowledge of an inci-

dent that took place three days before Dunn was killed, when police were called to the home Bond shared with his girlfriend. Prosecutors wanted to question Bond about the incident, in which he is alleged to have become involved in a physical altercation after finding his girlfriend in bed with another man. Crown prosecutor Frank Caputo said he

SEAN DUNN

intended to crossexamine Bond on the police report. The incident could have been seen by jurors to add credibility to the Crown’s theory that Bond could become

violently jealous. Defence lawyer Don Campbell argued allowing the jury to consider the evidence would be prejudicial. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan sided with Campbell, calling his argument “well-founded.” More than a dozen of Dunn’s family and friends filled three rows of the courtroom gallery for each day of Bond’s trial. They appeared emotional following the verdict and declined comment when asked.

Police raid property near Chase as part of robbery probe Police on Thursday executed a search warrant on a property near Chase in connection with an ongoing investigation of a robbery last week at an illegal cannabis shop in Kamloops. Chase RCMP Sgt. Barry Kennedy said officers out of Kamloops used the town’s detachment as a staging area on Thursday morning before heading out to a rural

property on Wagon Road, off of KamloopsShuswap Road on Adams Lake Indian Band land. Kennedy said Chase RCMP assisted members of the RCMP Southeast District Emergency Response Team with the search, part of an ongoing investigation into the March 9 robbery of the Phyven Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary at 829 Victoria St.

In that robbery — one of many in Kamloops recently — one man was brandishing a knife and the other had a longbarrelled firearm. Both were wearing masks. No one was injured in the 6:30 p.m. robbery and the suspects fled the scene with cash and cannabis. They were seen leaving in brown 2019 GMC Canyon pickup truck, which was later discovered near River Street

and had been reported stolen from Chase. The first suspect was described as a First Nations male with a red brimmed ball cap, toque and a beige Carhartt-style jacket. The second suspect, noted as taller and larger than the first, wore beige pants and had a piercing under his eye described as “two jewels, similar to a belly-button piercing.”

LOCAL NEWS A MOMENT IN TIME IN RIH

The Royal Inland Hospital Foundation and Interior Health on Tuesday unveiled the stained glass wall in the hospital’s Sacred Space sanctuary. Local artist Chuck St. John (third from right) designed the stunning feature, which became a reality through the fundraising efforts of the RIH Foundation. The work of art, A Moment in Time, is described by St. John as “a visual representation of the moment when lives are changed: births, deaths, marriages, physical and emotional trauma. All these events mark a moment in time when a life, or group of lives, is changed through celebration or healing and recovery.” The Sacred Space, located on the first floor of RIH, opened in 2010 as part of the hospital’s spiritual health program. The area provides patients, families, staff and physicians with a refuge in times of grieving, transition or celebration. It welcomes all faiths and cultures 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The space is also designed to accommodate First Nations smudging and smoke ceremonies. Also in the photo are RIH Foundation CEO Heidi Coleman (centre at podium) and art project committee members.

THE BANDWAGON HAS ROOM FOR YOU

T

he world is full of bleak news, from tragedies to environmental catastrophes to political scandals. They all deserve to be covered and we all should be aware of what is happening around us. But there are times when we need respite from the grim headlines — and this weekend is one of those times. Today is Friday, March 15, and your Kamloops Blazers are hotter than the surface of the sun. The boys in blue and orange are in the midst of a most improbable playoff pursuit as they prepare for the final two games of the regular season. About a week ago, these two games — tonight at home against Prince George and Saturday night in the Northern Capital to face those same Cougars — were considered mean-nothing affairs. About a week ago, the Blazers were far enough away from a potential playoff berth that the club needed a strong prescription from an optometrist just to see the team it was chasing. What a difference a week makes. Four straight wins in convincing fashion — including Wednesday’s 8-0 rout of the visiting Victoria Royals — combined with the Kelowna Rockets failing to fire properly means we have arrived at the final weekend of the season with the Rockets a mere point ahead of the Blazers, each with two games left in the regular season. That Kelowna has a home-and-series against Western Conference leader Vancouver and Kamloops has back-to-back games against Western Conference cellar-dwelling Prince George should serve as an injection of optimism for fans of the local squad. That Kamloops has defeated Prince George in six of seven games this season and Vancouver has the same record against Kelowna should further excite the Tournament Capital fan base. Head down to Sandman Centre on Friday night and watch the team in action. If you pay attention, you might just smell the scent of playoffs amid the hot dogs and french fries cooking in the concessions.

How biz supports news

W

hat did you pay to read this column today? Your answer might be, “Nothing” — and on the surface, you’re right. Whether you are reading it in print, on a laptop or on a smartphone, there is no cost to access our journalism. But really, you have paid for this column — through your attention. More specifically, through the attention you’re paying not to these words, but to the advertising you’re seeing around them, in this newspaper or on a screen. Our advertisers — the people who pay the salaries of everyone who works here — pay us for your attention, to highlight their products and services, to build their brands, to bring you into the store for their sale this week, to encourage you to call them or visit their website or to attend their concert or event. They do this because advertising in local newspapers and local news websites continues to be a powerful and cost-effective marketing platform – and that’s because of your trust in us. According to research conducted by our national association, News Media Canada, Canadians trust ads they see in newspapers and on their affiliated websites more than the ads in any other medium, including social media, other internet websites, radio and TV. In a world drowning in increasingly dubious advertising messages on what seems like

every surface, that trust in advertising is vital. But there’s got to be more to it than just results. After all, local merchants can reach local customers with greater precision than anyone thought possible a few years ago through a few clicks of a mouse. Enough ads on less trustworthy sites can be bought cheaply enough to have a similar result to what we can do. The difference — the thing a Google ad or a social-media post can’t do — is in building up your community. The advertisers you see in these pages or on the KTW website are building community by supporting the mission of local news. Their support makes it possible for us to cover city hall, your kids’ school, our local sports team, the courts and the happenings on your street. They make it possible for us to build up our community by supporting hundreds of local organizations and events with hundreds of thousands of dollars of in-kind

advertising support and publicity each year. This means the best way you can support us is by supporting them. We’re partnering with News Media Canada to create a Proud Advertiser program to help highlight these community-minded businesses that are supporting local news with their marketing dollars. Take a look at the ad on page A18 of today’s edition and please consider paying the advertisers you see there a visit this coming week. Some of them may be regular stops for you already; some may be places you’ve never visited before. Either way, when you do go to see them, please let them know what brought you in — their support for the local news you enjoy. This isn’t just helping us — it’s helping yourself. Your support creates a virtuous circle: the more you support those local businesses you see in our pages and on our website, the better they do and the more they’ll be able to do for you — more products, better hours, and improved service — and for your community, with even more support for local teams, events and charitable causes. Thanks for your attention to these words and for your support of local businesses who make them possible.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

BC HYDRO NUMBERS DON’T ADD UP

DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE Heavily armed police prepare to raid a gym, then owned by a gang co-founder, in January 2017.

KTW’S GANGS COVERAGE HAS INFORMED CITY Editor: The coverage KTW recently published on the continual drug and gang violence in Kamloops has been excellent (‘The worst violence we’ve seen,’ March 8). In a time of fake news and silo opinions, it’s great to see real in-depth and thoughtful journalism can still exist. The recent work the team at Kamloops This Week has done on the rise in criminal activity in our community has informed people, generated debate and raised awareness. It’s pulled back the curtain on what is really going on. That’s the level of community coverage we need more of in Kamloops. Steven Puhallo Kamloops

Editor: On April 27, 2010, the B.C. Liberals under Gordon Campbell passed legislation the stripped the B.C. Utilities Commission of its powers. The legislation stated that one of B.C.’s energy objectives was “to ensure the commission, under the Utilities Commission Act, continues to regulate the authority with respect to domestic rates, but not with respect to export, except as provided by this Act.” Note that the Act only applies to domestic rates and that it is only domestic rates that have been made wholly responsible for he total debt incurred by the government’s management of the Crown corporation. Last June, BC Hydro reported almost $6 billion in deferral and regulatory accounts. As a residential consumer, I am quite

concerned about the latest deferral of BC Hydro’s debt. The auditor feneral has just announced the deferral of another $5.5 billion to be recovered from ratepayers over time. This will mean households will be subsidizing both industry and exports for many years to come — both of which are charged about one-third of the cost of producing that electricity. PowerEx, BC Hydro’s export arm, sends electricity with a blended aggregate production cost of approximately eight cents per kw/hour to the U.S. at 2.33 cents per kw/hour. BC Hydro’s industrial rate averages about 3.5 cent per kw/hour. It seems that in addition to having the full responsibility for paying the debt of BC Hydro, domestic households are forced to subsidize both American

On June 15 of last year, I wrote to Energy Minister Michelle Mugall regarding BC Hydro’s debt, asking whether her ministry would consider setting the minimum rate charge for electricity from BC Hydro, whether domestic, industrial or export, at whatever the aggregate or blended cost was to BC Hydro for that same electricity.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

COUNCIL MAKES WISE DECISIONS FOR OUR FUTURE WRITE-AEditor: Thanks to city council, safer walking and biking routes just got closer to becoming a reality — as did enhanced transit. I am so proud of city council for pushing through planned construction of safer walkways, bike routes and mixed-use paths. These have been moved up to a closer timeline than originally projected, due to council’s decision this past Tuesday.

This is in keeping with a cleaner city, healthier citizens, reduced investment in parking and a quieter, friendlier city in which to get around. It helps all of us achieve goals of a smaller carbon footprint because the safer it is to get around out of our cars, the more likely we are to switch to human power. Increased transit is also a win because even when we give up our cars, we can still get from

downtown to a dinner party at the top of Pacific Way. Chances are you also need a bus to get to General Grants with your recycling. Some people will need it just to get to work and home. I am bursting with pride at this bold move into a better future. This is fully in keeping with the direction David Suzuki encouraged when he appeared at TRU last week. This is how I want my

tax dollars spent. Speaking of which, I heard rumour that one of the people who wrote letters to the editor speaking against the Peterson Creek multi-use path now walks it every day. Come on, walker, give us a follow-up letter as to why this investment is paying off for you. as it is for the rest of us. Margaret Archibald Kamloops

PARKING ENFORCEMENT AT HOSPITAL IS HEARTLESS Editor: I absolutely agree with Katharine Ferguson, whose letter of complaint about parking enforcement at Royal Inland Hospital by Impark was published in the March 13 edition of KTW (‘End all pay parking at hospitals in B.C.’). Impark’s modus operandi is profit-oriented

and absolutely insensitive to the public’s need for parking under at times extremely stressful circumstances. There must be some way, for example, to verify a driver has been detained longer than anticipated in emergency without having the driver leave a loved one to look for a ticket station.

We have all heard the saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Apparently. it’s not just a saying, but a fact with research to back it up. Many of us have experienced a long-distance relationship at some point in our lives. It’s quite common now for millennials to be in one due to school studies or careers. There are even those who have happened to meet someone overseas while traveling and have decided it’s worth the commitment of a long-distance love affair. Regardless of whether it’s school, an ocean or the Coqhihalla Highway that’s temporarily keeping you apart, the key word here is “temporarily.” I have come across an interesting kind of relationship that is new to me — living apart together (LAT) relationships. This phenomenon is apparently gaining momentum, with nearly 1.5 Canadians between the ages of 25 and 64 in a relationship with a partner who lives

structured commitments that cohabitation brings. They like the comforts of living on their own and seem satisfied with seeing their partner a few times a week. Sharon Hyman, a filmmaker from Montreal, is working on a documentary called APartners — Living Happily Ever Apart. She found in her research that many people like their own space, solitude and the feeling of staying independent. There are people reading this right now who cannot imagine the thought of not seeing their partner come in the door at the end of the day or not waking up beside them every morning. Imagine what it would have been like watching Archie Bunker come in from work, hang his hat and jacket up and wander over to his chair to watch TV without hearing Edith screeching, “AAAAArchiiiiiieee!” as she flew through the swinging doors from the kitchen to plant a kiss on his cheek. Today, it seems people

somewhere else. New data from Statistics Canada shows the proportion of LAT Canadians has been steadily increasing over the last decade. Thirtyfour per cent of respondents say they are not living with their partner by choice. Another 15 per cent say they have never considered living with their partner. If you are in a long-distance relationship, the ultimate goal is usually to be together. But that “together” doesn’t necessarily mean cohabiting. Those who were interviewed prefer to avoid the

I also know a couple who divorced and decided to let their little kids stay in the family home. They bought a small condo together and took turns staying with the kids in the family home. It worked for them. In the big picture, the most important thing is to do what works for you. If it’s living together, apart or together apart, people should not assume the way their parents or grandparents did it has to be the way they do it. If my husband comes across this column, I can assure you there is a pretty good chance I may be able to report firsthand what it’s like being in a living apart together relationship.

DNA data leads to hit/run charges

Death in cells probed by IIO

DNA evidence has led to charges being laid against a 29-year-old man in connection with a hit and run case from 2016. Mounties have arrested former Kamloops resident Joshua Joseph Pooli, who was living in Prince George when he was arrested. “We are very pleased that a suspect has been identified. This is a case where modern police investigative techniques … and patience … has paid

A man who police say was arrested for being intoxicated in public has been found dead in a cell in the Kamloops RCMP’s Battle Street detachment. The death has led to the Independent Investigations Office of British Columbia (IIO BC) launching an investigation. The IIO BC said Kamloops Mounties responded to a complaint from a business in the 100-block of Victoria Street downtown at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12. The complaint concerned an apparently intoxicated man remaining at the business after he was asked to leave. Kamloops Mounties arrived and found the man in a nearby parking lot, where he was arrested under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act and taken to RCMP cells, to be released when he was able to care for himself. However, the man was found unresponsive in his cell at just before 6 a.m. on Wednesday and was eventually pronounced deceased. “The IIO BC is now investigating to determine whether police actions or inactions are linked to the man’s death,” the IIO BC said in a statement. “As the matter is now under investigation by the IIO BC, no further information will be released by police.”

off,” stated Cpl. Jodi Shelkie in a press release. On the morning of Aug. 28, 2016, a female jogger was struck on West Athabasca Street by a vehicle that sped away without rendering assistance. The jogger sustained serious, but not life-threatening, injuries. Kamloops Mounties searched the area and discovered the suspect vehicle near the Halston Street Bridge. It had been stolen earlier that morning.

According to police, Pooli’s DNA was found inside the vehicle, but it did not match any of the samples within Canada’s national DNA Databank. Within the past year, DNA came into the database that matched. Pooli will be transported to Kamloops to face charges of failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing bodily harm, possession of stolen property and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

Mugging reported on TRU campus Kamloops Mounties are investigating a reported mugging on the campus of Thompson Rivers University. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said police were called at 2:40 p.m. on Monday, March 11, after a man walking near Wolfpack

Road and College Drive said he was robbed by a knifewielding suspect. The victim, who was not injured, told police the robber demanded his wallet, then fled toward Summit Drive. Shelkie said the wallet was

It was an important first step as newly elected councils on both sides of the river gathered at Moccasin Square Garden this week for the annual meeting between the City of Kamloops and Tk’emlups te Secwepemc. Both councils are largely made up of newly elected officials, with both elections taking place last fall. Tk’emlups Chief Rosanne Casimir, who served as a councillor for nine years before being

city and the band’s most recent collaboration — signing a letter of understanding committing both to preserving and promoting Secwepemc values and protecting Tk’emlups’ cultural heritage resources. Tk’emlups Coun. Jeanette Jules described the Peterson Creek trail as one of the major highlights of the year and noted the need to move the Stuart Wood cultural centre project forward. She also pointed out that CP and CN trains blocking bus access as an issue that needs to be worked out, but added there has been plenty of positive feedback on that development. Police statistics for the RCMP Rural detachment, which are kept with the city and not the band, need to be looked at so the band can ensure the detachment is properly staffed, Jules said. She also said sewer and fire agreements need to be reviewed to ensure properties within

the catchment area aren’t neglected. Jules said the band doesn’t see taxes collected on its reserve, such as traffic fines, citing that as another issue the band and city need to work on. Fines are now collected by the ThompsonNicola Regional District. Addressing affordable housing, the city’s community-development supervisor, Natalie Serl, said the municipality’s 2018 point in time count found 201 people experiencing homelessness in Kamloops — 48 per cent of whom identified as Indigenous. She noted a recent federal and provincial announcements to address First Nations homelessness and the number of social housing projects being implemented in Kamloops. Casimir told KTW the band intends to have its staff looking into accessing government funds for housing opportunities on the reserve.

Beware famliar tax season scam Mounties are warning the public about the annual scam that comes with tax season. The Canada Revenue Scam involves fraudsters posing as CRA representatives contacting you via email, phone call or text message, threatening that police will arrest you if a payment is not made.

Often the demands 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, intimidation or threaten a person with arrest and

police action. The CRA also never requests personal information by email, and won’t ask for information pertaining to your passport, health card or driver’s license. People can report an incident by calling 1-888-495-8501 (toll free) or by going online to antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca.

etween 2008 and 2011, the Samara Centre for Democracy conducted exit interviews with 65 former MPs and found little consistency in how they defined the core purpose of their job. As Samara reported, the answers varied, with one MP saying, “The first purpose is to serve one’s constituents” and another replying, ““People elect you to be in Parliament. They don’t elect you to schmooze in the constituency.” With voters going to the polls on Oct. 21, KTW sat down with Cathy McLeod, the Conservative MP who will seek her fourth term as Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo’s representative in Ottawa, and asked her that very question: What does an MP do? Her answer was succinct and to the point: “My team and myself try to

provide excellence to constituents.” In this age of online posts that are increasingly critical and decreasingly substantive, McLeod is aware of those who post insults, partisans calling for an MP who will “do something” for the riding. To that, she pointed to a box on her desk, overflowing with thank-you cards from constituents, and to a spreadsheet detailing federal funding that has come to the riding. Since she was re-elected in 2015, McLeod said she and her constituency office staff on Seymour Street staff have dealt with more than 3,000 cases, working with residents on files such as immigration, Canada Revenue and passport issues. Of those, she said, about 85 per cent have been solved. One of those files involved Steve Lidguard. Lidguard, from England, was looking to renew his work visa in February 2015. “Immigration Canada is just a nightmare when you call the num-

bers,” he said. “You can call three different times and get three different answers to the same questions.” Lidguard, whose wife is Canadian, said he hit a dead-end in his frustrating attempt to renew the work visa and was considering the expensive option of hiring an immigration lawyer. Instead, he contacted his MP’s office and dealt with McLeod staffer Ellen Mason. “And she was fantastic,” he said. “She pointed us in the right direction and did a lot of following up on our behalf. They met with us, emailed us all the time, talked on the phone.” About six months into the noworking ordeal, in the fall of 2015, Lidguard found himself in limbo, with his wife working three jobs to keep the family of five afloat and with him considering the very real possibility of returning to England to earn money. He told Mason of his predicament and, 10 days later, with the help of McLeod and her office, Lidguard

received his work visa. “I don’t know if it was coincidence and that was the timing or if my visit that day did something, but it was done shortly after. For me, I’m impartial, I’m not allowed to vote because I’m not a citizen. I’ve heard the good and the bad about her — and her office, Ellen, did exactly what she said she was going to do.” The MP’s team —Ellen Mason, Jennifer Heselton, Virika Miller and Tracy Gilchrist — gets credit from McLeod, who steps in when needed. “Not every team is as successful with supporting constituency issues as I like to say my team is,” McLeod said. “It’s a great team. Occasionally, we have to escalate when they need me to step in, when they need me to go to a minister, write a letter, start to probe deeper. That becomes part of my job, too.” Another big part of an MP’s job — and one often focused on by the general public — is bringing money to the riding in various forms. Since the October 2015 election,

McLeod can point to at least $79 million in federal dollars coming into the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding, for TRU, Kamloops Airport, seniors’ groups and more. “In terms of funding, you don’t get to do those nice cheques anymore, which is really unfortunate,” she quipped. “But I do make sure, when I’m meeting with organizations, they say, ‘We want to do X’ and what we do is, we watch for the opportunities for X.” A PERSONAL CONNECTION IN THE CARIBOO: Mitch Campsall, mayor of 100 Mile House, said he has never seen an MP in his small Cariboo community as often as he sees McLeod visit the town two hours northwest of Kamloops. “We don’t have any political party in these council chambers,” he said. “We have to deal with whatever government is in power.” See SHE’S DOING, A15

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod (left) chats with constituent Cecilia Frolek, while constituency office staffer Virika Miller looks on. McLeod’s constituency office is in Kamloops Square, at Seymour Street and Second Avenue.

‘She’s doing stuff for people’ From A14

“I’m not NDP. I’m not Liberal. I’m not Conservative,” Campsall said. “I’m looking at what Cathy is doing and she is always in our community, always bringing grants. She’s doing stuff for people non-stop.” Campsall also has a personal connection to McLeod’s work as MP. His nephew was critically injured in a fall at a resort in the Dominican Republic. Campsall said there were problems with the insurance company as his nephew, who later died, was in hospital with a brain injury. He called McLeod’s office and received a call within 30 minutes. “They got things going,” Campsall said. “They made sure he wasn’t kicked out of the hospital. Cathy McLeod was very huge in the fact that everything that could be done was being done because of her and her team.” McLeod recounted how she and her team stepped in to help sort out the insurance issues and ensure the injured man’s mother received an emergency passport so she could bring her boy home. “I laid down hard on the insurance company and said, ‘Solve this,’” McLeod explained. “Because they were going to kick him out of the hospital.”

ON THE FIRE LINES: McLeod referenced the devastating wildfires of 2017 as an example of a fluid situation in which an MP needs to get involved, and one from which various issues will arise in the months and years after the last flame flickers. In the summer of 2017, McLeod reached out to Thompson-Nicola Regional District CAO Sukh Gill to ask what was needed. Gill told the MP intake support at emergency social services was required. So, McLeod said, she was trained and joined the volunteers at ESS. “And it was through talking to the people who were coming in, hearing what their stories were, you got to really understand what some of the problems were,” McLeod said. Her experience during that fire season locally, and her exposure to similar wildfire issues when visiting Manitoba, led to From The Ashes, a report on fire safety and emergency management in Indigenous communities. The report from the all-party Standing Committee on Indigenous and Northern Affairs, on which McLeod sits as vice-chair, produced a number of recommendations to improve funding, communication, training and policy. The federal Liberal government

agreed to all recommendations in the report. “That’s where the NDP, the Liberals and the Conservatives go together and said, ‘This is important,’” McLeod said. She noted she has also been pressing the federal government on the need to exempt homeowners from capital gains tax when they need to remove wood from their properties during a declared state of emergency. She has also spoken on the need to create a tax credit for property owners who are required to remove trees from within 100 metres of their property line for insurance purposes. AN ANSWER FOR THE CRITICS: To the question as to whether she has been an effective MP, McLeod is resolute in her response. “Yes,” she said, “I’m happy to talk to any of them about what I’m doing and how I’m doing it. Maybe what I need to do is talk more loudly about some of these things that I’m really proud about doing because people don’t know about it. “Most people aren’t aware of how what happens in the riding connects through to the work I do in Ottawa.”

A man who may very well be McLeod’s opponent in this year’s election campaign said MP Cathy McLeod’s work ethic cannot be questioned. Terry Lake is former mayor of Kamloops and former B.C. Liberal health minister. He is now considering seeking the local federal Liberal nomination and, if he does secure it, he will work to defeat McLeod. “I have always respected Cathy,” Lake said. “I worked really well with her as an MLA. We worked on numerous files together and I’ve always found her to be hard-working at the constituency level. She shows up, she talks to people, she helps people.” Lake noted many people do not understand what it is that an MP or MLA does, that a large part of the job is working with individual constituents on securing a passport or helping with an immigration issue. “On issues like that, that are federal issues, I think she was a very good constituency MP,” Lake said. “She always had time for people and good staff who worked through those issues.” Having said that, Lake said if he does seek the Liberal nomination — and it is widely expected he will — he will be running to win. “It will be a very respectful engagement because I have respect for her,” Lake said. “I just feel the party she is running for and is a part of is not the party that I think can do the most for our region and for Canada.” Lake is confident the federal Liberals will be re-elected and said a government MP would be good for the riding. “If I do make that decision, that will be my argument,” Lake said. “It won’t be that Cathy is a bad person or that she’s done a bad job. It will really be about the vision for Canada and the difference between the Conservative Party and the Liberal Party of Canada.” Bill Sundhu was the NDP candidate in the 2015 federal election, finishing second to McLeod, with a 3,000-vote margin separating the two. Sundhu is now president of the NDP’s riding association and will not be a candidate in this year’s election.

I have always said I “think Ms. McLeod is a nice person, but she has been an inconsequential member of Parliament.

— BILL SUNDHU NDP riding president and 2015 candidate

But he still has a forceful opinion of McLeod as MP. “She will be, by October, an 11-year incumbent. And I have always said I think Ms. McLeod is a nice person, but she has been an inconsequential member of Parliament,” Sundhu said. “She has not really made her mark, she is not known nationally, she seems very weak on policy and really has not distinguished herself. “Even in the Indigenous portfolio as a critic, she seems to lose out on the debates and looks like she’s not prepared and in over her head.” Sundhu pointed to past Kamloops MPs who he said had national profiles — Dave Fulton, Len Marchand and Nelson Riis — arguing McLeod has been a weak MP in comparison. “I’m not going to discount the fact that there’s lots of stuff that MPs do, that it’s just routine stuff, you know, passport applications, Canada Pension Plan applications, somebody needs a visa or whatever,” Sundhu said. “And I’m sure she does that. Her staff probably works very hard, but that’s not the kind of stuff people speak to you about.”

The City of Kamloops says its flowers are more vibrant and it is saving money after outsourcing some of its blooms last year. City civic operations director Jen Fretz said the municipality saved $35,000 in 2018 in operational costs. “Which has basically resulted in the more beautiful plantings that you see before you,� Fretz said. “Not that things weren’t beautiful before, they are just more vibrant than they were.� The savings follow a decision in December 2017 to close one of the city’s two greenhouses and outsource bedding plants.

City’s waste rises, Cannabis bylaw wording tweaked while recyclables dip MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

Landfilled waste in the city continued to pile up in 2018, while the amount of curbside recycling collected decreased. In 2018, 65,485 tonnes of waste was landfilled, compared to 63,950 tonnes in 2017 and 58,680 tonnes in 2016. Additionally, 4,680 tonnes of curbside recycling was collected in 2018, compared to 6,145 tonnes in 2017 and 6,260 tonnes in 2016. City civic operations director Jen Fretz said changes to Recycle BC and clamping down on contamination impacted recycling last year. “We’re working daily with residents and property owners to try to make sure that people understand what it means when they just haphazardly throw something into

their recycling cart or bin that doesn’t belong there,” she said. “It’s not a matter of out of sight, out of mind, I’ve done my part, I’ve recycled. “Unfortunately, in most cases, that material ends up going to the landfill. We do have an education campaign that’s ongoing, but we also hope to be coming before council in 2019, 2020 with respect to both commercial recycling as well as the potential for organics diversion at the curb, which will increase our overall diversion numbers and reduce the landfilled volume.” The city’s civic operations year in review report notes “some” contaminated recycling bins were tipped as garbage. Fretz could not say, however, how many ended up in the landfill. The rate of tonnes per person landfilled increased only slightly,

to .694 in 2018, compared to .693 in 2017 and .642 in 2016. The city notes the city’s population rose by about 550 residents in 2018 over 2017. For those who do not know which items can and cannot be recycled curbside, the city’s waste-wise app allows residents to search items. It can be found online here: https://www.kamloops. ca/city-services/recycling-garbage/wastewise-kamloops-app. Additionally, the city offers a waste-sorting game at https://kamloopsbc.recycle.game/. In 2018, more than 32,000 items were searched, with plastic bags, Styrofoam and glass the top-searched items, none of which can be recycled curbside. The most improperly sorted items were chip bags, styrofoam packaging and plastic cutlery, none of which are not accepted.

Art grants to be awarded The City of Kamloops is putting out the call for its annual grant program. Community Art Grant applications from non-profit organizations are being accepted for projects that promote development and awareness of the arts in the Tournament Capital. In 2018, $30,000 was made available and 11 organizations were awarded funding.

Chimera Theatre Society, Kamloops Arts Council, TRU’s campus radio station 92.5 CFBX and Project X Theatre Productions were among the recipients of the grant last year. Applications must be received before 4 p.m. on Friday, April 5, though submission of an application does not guarantee funding support. Go online to Kamloops.ca/Grants.

A true Irishman considers anyone who won’t come around to his point of view, to be hopefully stubborn.

Kamloops council has approved revising regulations to remove from its zoning bylaw references to medical cannabis grow-operations in favour of broader terminology: cannabis production facilities. A public hearing on the matter Tuesday night yielded no opposition from any member of the public and was passed without any comment from councillors, city business licence inspector David Jones told KTW. In Kamloops, all cannabisproduction facilities are permitted in general and heavy industrial zones and agricul-

tural properties. The status quo will be maintained in regulating that facilities be 150 metres from residential properties and schools. A mechanical ventilation system is also required to prevent odours. Unlike retail applications, production facilities do not require council approval, but they must comply with zoning and building regulations. Cannabis growing and manufacturing is regulated by the federal government. Health Canada is the gatekeeper for micro-cultivation (200 square metres or less), standard cultivation, nurseries, processing, micro-processing, analytical testing and research licences.

Law at heart of SNC Lavalin case rarely gets to Canadian courtrooms CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The criminal law at the heart of the SNC-Lavalin saga dogging the federal Liberals has led to charges in just seven cases in 20 years, leading some to call for a review of the legislation and more resources for investigators. The most recent report to Parliament on the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act shows since the law was passed in 1999, there have been bribery charges laid against four companies and

15 individuals as a result of seven investigations. Of those, three companies pleaded guilty and three people were convicted, while 11 people were either acquitted or had the charges stayed. There is one ongoing case against a company: SNC-Lavalin, over alleged bribes to Libyan officials. That case is part of the allegations that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his staff tried to influence former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to

negotiate a remediation agreement to avoid a criminal trial for the Quebecbased firm. James Cohen, the executive director of Transparency International’s Canadian office, said the recent introduction of remediation agreements as an option might help convince companies to self-report bribery but that there is much more Canada needs to do to help change the notion that bribery is simply the cost of doing business in many countries.

Man killed young daughter to make estranged wife suffer, jury told CANADIAN PRESS

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — A Crown prosecutor says a Newfoundland man murdered his five-year-old daughter in a calculated plan to inflict suffering on her mother, his estranged wife. A St. John’s, N.L., court heard closing arguments Thursday in the trial of Trent Butt, who is accused of the first-degree murder of his daughter Quinn in his Carbonear, N.L., home in April 2016. The courtroom was packed after an emotionally wrought trial that already heard from fire and medical experts, Butt himself and Quinn’s mother, Andrea Gosse. The jury deliberated for about four hours Thursday before retiring for the evening, and will resume Friday morning. No one is arguing outright that Butt didn’t kill his daughter. The jury is being asked to decide whether the death was planned and deliberate, which would mean Butt is guilty of first-degree murder, or if he is guilty of a lesser charge. Butt testified earlier that he did not remember killing Quinn, but said he found himself over her body and concluded he must have suffocated her.

New federal food guide may be ‘out of reach,’ report says HOLLY McKENZIE-SUTTER

CANADIAN PRESS

The fruit-and-vegetable-heavy fare touted in the new federal food guide may be too expensive — or perhaps just not enticing enough — to easily form the basis of most Canadians’ diets, a new report suggests. Researchers at Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph found over 52 per cent of consumers surveyed said they face barriers in adopting the guide’s recommendations. More than 26 per cent of people cited affordability, with others blaming taste preferences, lack of free time, dietary and cultural restrictions and a lack of availability in their area. The survey generally found a lack of reliance on Canada’s Food Guide for advice, though 74 per cent of respondents were aware of its 2019 upgrade. The guide ranked as the sixth most popular source of nutrition information among respondents, following friends and family, social media, magazines and cookbooks. “I would say that many Canadians are struggling with the concept of how

the food guide, the plate they see on the pamphlet, connects with their own reality and frankly, Canadian agriculture,’’ said Sylvain Charlebois, a food researcher at Dalhousie and lead author on the report. “It’s great to celebrate this ideal but if it’s out of reach, if many Canadians feel it’s out of reach, how good is it?’’ Using a series of test plates, researchers found that switching from the 2007 food guide to the 2019 upgrade would save an average Canadian family of four 6.8 per cent on annual food costs. But that number is not predicted to stay stable. The report cautioned that Canadians’ rapidly changing diets, fluctuating food costs and availability of produce could make the new recommendations less affordable over the next few years. The number of vegans, vegetarians and “flexitarians’’ — people consciously eating less meat — is on the rise in Canada, now totalling at around 6.5 million people, a group roughly the same size as the population of the Greater Toronto Area. The report detailed how fruit and vegetable prices are increasing faster than the price of meats.

If the trend continues as more people cut meat from their diets and turn to plant-based proteins, demand for and price of fruits and vegetables could increase further. That could price people out of the food guide’s suggested diet. While a lot can change in the world economy over two years, Charlebois said the projections spell trouble for future food security in Canada, where most produce is imported and prices fluctuate. “Over time, we do believe that there’s going to be an increasing number of Canadian households that will become food insecure, if they are to follow the new food guide,’’ Charlebois said. Health Canada said the department welcomes the researchers’ study and is currently reviewing it. It said Canadians had complained they had trouble following the recommended servings and sizes in the previous guide, and that the cost of food was considered in the revision. “This is why the new food guide is less prescriptive — talking about proportions rather than portions — and its recommendations can be adapted to different dietary preferences,’’ it said in a statement.

Lack of funding prompts B.C.’s legal aid lawyers to plan withdrawal of services CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — British Columbia’s legalaid lawyers have voted overwhelmingly to start withdrawing their services next month over lack of funding. The Association of Legal Aid Lawyers says 97 per cent of 590 members voted for job action to limit or suspend legal aid starting April 1. A news release from the association said the only pay increase legal-aid law-

The lawyers group also said the average spent per person on legal aid in 1993 was $25.22 and, accounting for inflation, should now amount to about $40. Instead, data shows 2018 per-capita spending on legal aid has fallen to just under $15, ranking B.C. 10th out of 12 provinces and territories. Legal-aid lawyers say the funding cut requires immedi-

ate government attention. “As a result of these cuts, vulnerable and marginalized British Columbians are not receiving the legal help they need. Too many people facing difficult family, child protection, immigration and criminal law problems are having to go to court alone,’’ the release said. The near-unanimous vote underscored that “lawyers cannot continue doing this extremely difficult work under current conditions.’’

A healthy way to help the kids

C

oming to Kamloops from Mumbai, India — also known as the city that never sleeps — wasn’t easy. Mumbai is a city of 22-million hearts, where each heart was a part of different nuclear communities. Landing in Kamloops as an international student, I was excited to be a part of a completely different and new world. During my time as a student, it was surprising to me how Kamloops was one large community where people, businesses and organizations come together to support each other in different ways. After graduating last October with a degree in marketing, I didn’t feel like leaving Kamloops as it was my time to pay back the Kamloops community for being so welcoming and accepting me as a individual. As a working professional, I have time and energy I could spend giving back to the community. I learned the Kamloops YMCAYWCA is the charity that helps local communities live a healthy lifestyle in different ways every day. Health isn’t a goal, it is a way of living — and I want to help families in Kamloops that aren’t living a healthy lifestyle due to various challenges. With the help of Kamloops Y and Kamloops This Week, I am participating in the 2019 Y Strong Kids Campaign. I am trying to contribute my time, energy and money, along with my KTW Press Time team and the Y, in a effort to collectively

raise $100,000 for 1,000 kids, which would provide financial assistance to children and their families in our community, ensuring the Y is accessible to everyone. Here is your chance to help us give every kid a chance to discover their potential by donating to the campaign. You can contribute by donating online at tinyurl.com/y4xtb4mb and also by participating in the following fundraisers: • On Thursday, March 21, swing by the Fox’N Hounds Pub in Sahali Mall between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for our Guilt-Free Burger. Choose from an animal-less burger, a beef burger or a chicken burger and half of the proceeds from every burger sold will go to the Y Strong Kids Challenge. • On Wednesday, March 27, join our KTW Press Time team for dinner and silent auctions at the Commodore Grand Cafe and Lounge, 369 Victoria St. Tickets are $25, with proceeds going to Y Strong Kids. Call 778-471-7541 for tickets. • On Saturday, March 30, get your car washed at City Centre Auto, 963 Victoria St., and have a hot dog while you wait. The car wash will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with all proceeds going to Y Strong Kids. — Max Patel penned this sixth instalment for Press Time. Fellow members will chronicle their experiences in the Y Strong Kids Campaign in future editions of KTW and online at kamloopsthisweek.com.

ART EXPOSED

The annual Art Exposed exhibit is featured at The Old Courthouse, at Seymour Street and First Avenue downtown, through this Saturday. Visitors can enjoy viewing 200 pieces of original art. “Art Exposed has the potential to grow into an event that showcases more than just static art that hangs on walls or sits on a pedestal,” said event manager Lorel Sternig. “My hope is that we bring other elements to the event, where people who are creatively working in other fields become part of this exciting showcase. At present, we have the following categories: Emerging and Established Artist in 2D and 3D as well as a youth award. We could potentially grow this event into a festival that spotlights other categories to show off performance art, tattoo art, costume/fashion art, hair art, culinary arts and more.” At right is Janet Scruggs’ Lichen, which was awarded first place in the 2D Established Artist category. Above is 11-year-old Evalee Charlton’s mixed paper medium work called After She’s Gone, which took first place in the youth category. ALLEN DOUGLAS PHOTOS/KTW

uslim governments were not silent when Burma murdered thousands of Rohingya, its Muslim minority, and expelled 700,000 of them across the border into Bangladesh. They were unanimous in their anger when the Donald Trump administration moved the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. But they are almost silent on China’s attempt to suppress Islam in its far western province of Xinjiang. It is the most brazen frontal assault on Muslims in modern history. Up to a million Chinese citizens have been sent to concentration camps in Xinjiang for the non-crime of being Muslim. They are also guilty of the non-crime of being a 10-million-strong ethnic minority, mostly Uighurs, but including 1.5-million Kazakhs, who do not feel sufficiently Chinese. But Islam is the focus of the state’s anger. In the face of this repression, the 49 Muslim-majority countries of the world have said almost nothing. Malaysia refused to send a dozen Uighur refugees back to China last year, four members of Kuwait’s parliament made a public protest in January and Turkey loudly condemned China’s behaviour last month — but the other 46 governments have avoided the issue. It is very strange. When Turkey finally did cut loose, foreign ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said: “It is no longer a secret that more than a million Uighur Turks exposed to arbitrary arrests are subjected to torture and political brainwashing” in Chinese prisons .... “The reintroduction of concentration camps in the 21st century and the systematic assimilation policy of Chinese

authorities against the Uighur Turks is a great embarrassment for humanity.” Even then, other Muslim countries remained silent. With the honourable

scale and the purpose of the repression. These camps, it says, are “vocational training centres” that tackle “extremism” through “thought transformation” (what used to be called brainwashing, an old political tradition in communist China). The detainees are held indefinitely. There are no formal charges or sentences, but hardly anybody has been released in the past couple of years. They are “trainees,” said the top Chinese official in Xinjiang, Shohrat Zakir, last October, who are grateful for the opportunity to “reflect

Turkic language. And when that wasn’t producing the desired result, Beijing began expanding the “re-education centres” that now hold up to a 10th of the Muslim population. There is nothing surprising in all of this. Assimilation to the Han Chinese norm was the policy of all Chinese governments, even before the communist takeover. What is surprising is the response — or, rather, lack thereof — of Muslim governments elsewhere. Why are they silent? Mainly because

exception of Al-Jazeera, the issue is rarely even mentioned in the Arab media and popular awareness of what is happening is minimal in big Muslim countries like Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia. Why? It’s true the mass repression of the Uighurs and other Muslims in China only became known abroad in the past year, although it was already state policy at least two years ago. It’s also true that a lot of the evidence is circumstantial. While there are plenty of first-person reports of the brutal treatment of the Uighurs, for example, the estimates of how many are actually imprisoned — up to a million, which would be 10 per cent of all the Muslims in Xinjiang — are really estimates of how many the camps could hold, based on satellite observations of their size. China denies both the

on their mistakes.” Zakir is obviously a Muslim name: as always, there are collaborators and careerists among the oppressed. But it is a classic late colonial situation with a communist twist. The population of Xinjiang was over 90 per cent Muslim and Turkicspeaking when the new communist regime in China reconquered the region in 1949. Beijing’s original solution, as in Tibet to the south, was to drown the native population in Han Chinese immigrants, Muslims now account for only 45 per cent of the population. When the inevitable pushback came — antiChinese race riots and some terrorist attacks — the Chinese regime responded with intense surveillance and repression of the native population. Part of the package was an attempt to curb Islamic observance and the use of the local

China is lavishing loans and grants on them: $20 billion in loans to Arab countries, a rumoured $6 billion to Pakistan and even more to the nearby Muslim countries of Central Asia ($27 billion in joint industrial projects in Kazakhstan alone). They need the money, so they shut up — as do their tame media. When the de facto dictator of Saudi Arabia, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, visited China recently, he endorsed China’s right to take “anti-terrorism” and “deextremism” measures in Xinjiang. Of course, he needs China’s support in fighting off the accusations that he ordered the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi more than he needs the money. Xinjiang’s Muslims have been abandoned by the ‘umma’, the world community of Muslims. They are on their own, and they are suffering.

New season lined up for Western Canada Theatre Sound of Music, Dracula among popular favourites in season lineup featuring six Canadian plays SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

W

estern Canada Theatre has announced its new season and has scheduled nine performances for theatregoers over the next year. The shows on the docket include six Canadian plays, two musicals and two comedies, with some familiar names on the list of what’s to come. The season is broken up into two groups by venue, with one series taking place at Sagebrush Theatre and the other at Pavilion Theatre.

SAGEBRUSH THEATRE

Dracula: The Bloody Truth, a play by Le Navet Bete and John Nicholson, will run from Oct. 10 to Oct. 19. The play is described as Monty Python meets macabre and tells the story of professor Abraham Van Helsing on a breakneck journey from the Transylvanian mountains to the English coast. Another familiar title will bring the hills to life around Christmastime. From Nov. 28 to Dec. 10, The Sound of Music will be staged in Kamloops as an allnew WCT production. The most popular musical in history tells the story of the von Trapp’s story of love, family and escape from the Nazis. The New Canadian Curling Club tells the comedic story of four unlikely curlers — recent Canadian immigrants who know little about the sport. After their coach suffers an injury, they find the replacement coach has

strong opinions about immigration, but they all must overcome their differences to compete for the famed Highlander Cup. The Thousand Islands Playhouse coproduction runs in Kamloops from Jan. 23, 2020, to Feb. 1, 2020. Serving Elizabeth is a play with two settings. One is set in Kenya, 1952, just before Elizabeth takes the crown, when a vehemently anti-monarchist cook is offered an exorbitant fee to cook for the princess. The other setting is in London in 2015. As Brexit ramps up and politics flare, Queen Elizabeth is featured in a TV series and a young KenyanCanadian production intern experiences a clash of culture. See the play from Feb. 20, 2020, to Feb. 29, 2020. Chelsea Hotel: The Songs of Leonard Cohen is the story of a songwriter who checks in to New York’s Chelsea Hotel, desperately looking for lyrics for his next song. The writer is tormented by his past relationships and wants to forget about who he loves. The play will run from March 28, 2020, to April 4, 2020, and is described as sexy, mysterious and daring and is told through Cohen’s music and lyrics.

PAVILION THEATRE

The Drowning Girls is the story of three dead Edwardianera brides who come back alive to recount evidence against their former husband, who murdered them. The play, described as a “stylish, haunting fantasia” also features quirky humour and excitement. It runs from Sept. 19 to Sept. 28.

Café Daughter takes place in 1950s small-town Saskatchewan. A nine-year-old half-Chinese, half-Cree child struggles to find her place in an unwelcoming and quaint prairie community before an ally appears to help her. The play is inspired by the real-life story of Chinese-Canadian/Cree senator Lillian Eva Quan Dyck. This production will run from March 12, 2020, to March 21, 2020. Ice cream, rollercoasters and the smell of old books are three items on the list of things that makes life worth living, according to the main character in Every Brilliant Thing, whose mother is battling chronic depression. The solo production done in the round will run from April 30, 2020, to May 9, 2020. “Brilliant things” from the list will be handed out to audience members, who will either shout their item out or join the actor on stage to play a brief part. The season will also feature a special presentation of The Boy in the Moon at Pavilion Theatre. The play is based on Globe and Mail journalist Ian Brown’s memoir that tells the story of how he and his partner raised their son, who was born with profound disabilities caused by a rare genetic disorder.

served beforehand. A new subscription option for only the shows at Pavilion Theatre shows is also available this year. A previous WCT production from last season is also headed out on tour. Glory will play in Vancouver, Richmond and Nelson in B.C. along with four theatres in Ontario and one in Saskatchewan.

SAGEBRUSH COMPLICATIONS WCT managing director Evan Klassen also discussed Sagebrush Theatre, saying that its closure has had a “profound effect” on the organization. He said productions moving to Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre meant a doubling of expenses and a $50,000 loss for its recent production Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story. He also said that he’s seen the

community rally behind WCT — support the organization has needed as of late.. Klassen said he expects Sagebrush Theatre to reopen Sept. 1, more than one month before WCT’s fall productions begin.

TICKETS Various ticket options are available, including flex passes of five or seven tickets and discounts for students and those younger than 30 or older than 65. Subscribers can access early bird pricing until June 1. Tickets are available at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483 and online at kamloopslive.ca.

Liam Duncan channels breakup hardships in debut album

Member of Winnipeg’s The Middle Coast will perform a small show Friday night SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

L

iam Duncan has gone solo — in more ways than one. While you may not recognize his name, you may have heard of the trio he played with up until recently — Winnipeg’s The Middle Coast, a band that described its sound as “‘70s-style yacht rock.” So how does Duncan describe his sound as a solo act? “Not that,” he said. “It’s more along the singersongwriter, alt-country, indie rock vibe. They are pretty straight up songs with pop song structure — that’s sort of the school I’m born and raised in,” he told KTW. Members of The Middle Coast have decided to pursue their respective solo acts for the time being, but Duncan said they might work together again later. As for Duncan, his solo pursuit is driven by a recent romantic departure. “The album coming out is just a top-to-bottom breakup album,” he said. The wounds are fresh. It’s the

first time a long-term relationship has ended for the soon-to-be 23-year-old Winnipeg artist. He didn’t hesitate to document his experience through songwriting. He is, however, a little hesitant to put it all out there. The former couple has resolved their differences and are friends, but Duncan is still living with the words he’s put to music. “It kind of hurts a little bit every time I put out another song,” he said. That means the pain has returned at least twice. Duncan released Times Like These at the beginning of February and followed up with another single, Shaking, on March 8. His album is due out in June. Its tracks are ordered in the same order he wrote them — as he endured each stage of breakup grief. The record has been somewhat of a songwriting awakening for Duncan, who said he normally writes about what’s going on in his personal life. “I think it was cathartic. I’ve

has done records with acts like Tegan and Sara, 54-40, The New Pornographers, Said the Whale and Mother Mother. While work on the new album wraps up, Duncan has also been playing keyboard for The Bros. Landreth, a Winnipeg-based band that won a Juno Award for roots and traditional album of the year in 2015. He said sometimes it’s nice to be a cog in the machine for a change. Duncan has some other B.C. Interior dates planned, including Kelowna and Vancouver before heading back east for shows in Regina and Winnipeg at the end of the month. In Kamloops, he will play a show at 8 p.m. on Friday at The Bassment, a small 40-seat homebased venue Aberdeen. Seating must be reserved online at thebassmentkamloops.com.

Taxidermy artist featured on late night TV talk show Various creations by Madi Lowe, who sources her dead animals from a pet shop’s frozen snake food.

SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

n odd creation by a Kamloops taxidermy artist was briefly featured on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Madi Lowe dresses up and poses her taxidermy — primarily mice and rats — and sometimes puts them in scenes. Her work featured on The Late Late Show was a nativity scene featuring the characters of hit CBC TV series Schitt’s Creek. Corden and his guest, Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy, held up the photo on the show last Friday. Lowe, whose name wasn’t mentioned during the segment, had no idea her work would be seen by such a wide audience. She awoke to messages from her friends the next day. The display was created as part of a superfan contest held by CBC last year, Lowe told KTW.

Although she didn’t win, she did receive a T-shirt for her efforts and Dan Levy commented on her Instagram post — which is how she thinks it ended up on The Late Late Show. “That photo was just something I took at a market over Christmastime — that’s why it was part of a nativity scene,” she said. Through her company Mad Mad World Taxidermy, Lowe sells her posed creations and markets her work as ethical — using only what is already dead that was not

killed for her purposes. That mostly means going through frozen snake food sold at local pet stores and picking out what she can work with, or getting a call from friends who encounter something dead she might be able to use. “I have really awesome friends that call me whenever a bird flies into their window,” she said.

Lowe is currently travelling in Australia, but said she plans to return to her business soon. Her coming work might involve some more mousy TV adaptations, including more elaborate costumes now that she has taken sewing classes and expanded her skillset. Among her other pop culture creations are rats from Arrested

Development and Harry Potter. “I want to do Scrubs next. I think Zach Braff would see it. He shares a lot of fan art on Instagram,” she said. For now, Lowe is continuing her travels and grateful to have support from back home. “It’s nice to have my hometown so supportive of such a weird thing,” she said.

hen you think of Denmark, beaches aren’t usually the first thing

that come to mind. Unless, you visit the municipality of Halsnæs. Located in Sealand, you’re never too far from the water; the Kattegat Sea is to the northwest, the Ise and Roskilde Fjords are to the south and west, respectively, the Arresø, (largest lake in the country) lies to the east. Almost the entire northern coast of this landmass is rimmed with a heavenly stretch of sand. Although the shorelines are a bonus, our primary purpose for this trip is to be part of our son’s marriage celebration. He wed his Danish sweetheart several years ago in Los Angeles, where they now live and so our visit to Denmark is to unite our new families together. It’s happening at her parents’ summer house in the region’s quaint community of Liseleje. Founded in 1784, this former fishing village has evolved since its 19th century beginnings into a popular tourist haunt and getaway for seasonal homeowners. Pencil-thin laneways weave throughout this township, hosting cottages, some which are painted jet black, trimmed in white. Others are adorned in soft pastel tones, topped with thatched roofs. Some sit nestled into forest groves, others alongside pastoral fields. A few of the fortunate (like our daughter-in-law’s family’s) perch high on the bank overlooking the sea. All funnel into a small hub where a few shops, a couple of

restaurants and the best-ever bakery can be found. Arriving a day before the festivities begin provides us with some luxury time to explore and scout the area. From Liseleje, we motor southwest along R47, a quiet coastal route that hugs its way along a string of beaches, which I can’t begin to pronounce. Hyllingebjerg, Nødebovejen, Gråstenvej — all gorgeous strips of sand, lapped by white-tipped waves. Historic towns are interspersed along the way; the quiet hamlet of Hald, the region’s oldest fishing village of Kikhavn (circ 1561) and the pretty peninsula enclave of

Hundested. “Let’s stop for some seafood,” my husband says. “ He’s correct. This harbour town is known for its underwater life. As well as being connected by ferry to the towns of Kulhuse and Rørvig, Hundested is a sanctuary for both fishermen and seals. We discover the name originated from royal seal hunts that took place on Hunderevet, a nearby reef. Although there’s still the occasional sighting, most of these mammals now live farther out in the Kattegat Sea. While sharing fish and fries, we gaze out at the deep blue with hopes of catching

a glimpse of a black bobbing head. No such luck today. Our next landmark is Lynæs, a village at the tip of the headland where a kayak and surf centre lures the adventuresome. It was here, in 1898, that inventor Valdemar Poulsen created the magnetic recorder and arc converter for radio transmission. “Technology has come a long way since then,” Brent says, as he gets out his IPhone and Googles our next destination. Route 40, takes us inland, where we bisect farmlands and cruise by historical manors.

Located between Arreso Lake and Roskilde Fjord is Frederiksvaerk, our next stop. Bridges span the many canals that flow throughout this seaside oasis, hence its moniker, Little Venice. Although once, and still evident, of being an industrial compound, the arts aspect of this community continues to flourish. In the 16th century King Frederik V established a cannon foundry, which has been converted to a cultural centre today. Here, we’re able to trace its roots back to 1760 when this house served as a cannon foundry, supplying the Royal Danish Army and Marine with cannons and accompanying weaponry. After our Danish history lesson, it’s time to move on. If we continue travelling R40, we can check out the hills of Olsted. By going east, we’ll be on the lakeshore town of Vinderod where not only bird, but beaver-watchers love to gather. Eleven of these busy builders were released in North Sealand in 2009, a few of which have constructed several dens along the shoreline of Arreso Lake. Or, we could take a shortcut and head due north. A cyclefriendly route cleaves through the interior of this landscape, linking the two bodies of water. All routes sound touristworthy, but today, we’re running short of time. “We should go for option three and get back to help with setting up the summer house for the lovefest,” Brent says. “And, if there’s time we can always hit the beach.”

FAITH

What is meant when partaking in Lent? Lent is a longstanding, 40-day ‘fast’ practised by Christians of many denominations throughout all corners of the world

I

t’s here again — Lent. One of my favourite seasons of the church calendar year. In the beginning of December, Advent begins the Christian year with a focus given to prepare mind and soul for the gift of the Christ child. It’s Christmas, with so many wonderful things to celebrate and do. Along comes Epiphany, on January 6, encouraging awareness of divine presence in everyday moments. And then, all of a sudden, or so it seems, the Lenten season is upon us, beginning with Ash Wednesday. For the next five weeks or so, our thoughts, our prayers and our reflections take on a differing focus. This is Lent. Lent is a longstanding, 40-day ‘fast’ practiced by Christians of many denominations in all corners of the world. Historically, the Christian church established Lent around the 4th century, as a time of fasting to prepare for Resurrection Sunday, Easter Sunday. They developed forms of fasting and prayer to focus upon the life of Jesus, with the intent to live daily the Jesus way of life. The term Lent itself began during the Middle Ages and was derived from the Germanic word for “spring.” Some suggest the Anglo Saxon “lenct” meaning “long” was the origin, since this referred to lengthening of days. Ash Wednesday ushers in the 40-day fast (this year, March 6). On Shrove Tuesday, (or Pancake Tuesday) Christians traditionally prepare for the time of fasting. This too, is a throwback to the Middle Ages. Housewives emptied their pantries of butter, bacon, eggs, sausages, fancy meats, all the good stuff which would not be on the menu during Lent. So as not to waste a good thing, the medieval women created Pancake Tuesday, (well, maybe they didn’t call it such), which remains in the

JOYCE PEASGOOD You Gotta Have

FAITH

church calendar. It became the last chance to indulge from the larder before Lent. The 40-day season of Lent ends on Maundy Thursday, April 18. For those of us from the western Christian tradition, the 40-day fast excludes Sundays. Nice to know that whatever I give up is “legal” on Sundays. So today, Lent offers time and space, through fasting (giving up of something), prayer and reflection to be attentive to God’s Spirit speaking to us within. It is a time to nurture the journey of letting go of habits or thought patterns in our lives. It is a journey of dying to old ways of being and thinking — to be transformed into new hope and trust. As well, the three-fold practice of Lent within our Christian experience of today includes fasting, prayer and offering service to others in need. Henri Nouwen noted that, “Lent offers a beautiful opportunity to discover the mystery of Christ within us. It is a gentle but also demanding time.” He suggests, “when we live Lent attentively and gently, then Easter can truly be a celebration of the risen Christ in the deepest place of our being.” (Taken from the Lenten booklet titled, Called to Life, Called to Love by Henri Nouwen). The invitation during Lent is to slow down, to take time to notice divine presence in the moments of the day, to walk more slowly and reflec-

tively. Clearly, this form of fasting is countercultural since it is a call to slowing down our busy pace and drinking deeply from moments of silence and contemplation. I have discovered over the years of practicing Lent, that deciding what to fast from seemed to be a bit tricky. Oh, giving up coffee, chocolate, or some other food, was OK. In the moment, it served it’s purpose. In recent years, published Lenten reflections have noted inner attitudes that require some realignments. For example, it may be important to fast from a critical spirit and so take on kindness, fast from having to have control to take on humility, or fast from grudges so to take on forgiveness and being reconciled. Such simple fasting practices, as letting go of complaining and taking on acceptance can open up news vistas of seeing the world around us. It encourages the ability to listen attentively to God, to ourselves and to others. Fasting at the level of our inner attitudes opens up our ability to experience the love of God, which is at the heart of the Lenten and Easter season. I truly love Lent. Each year I come to this season anticipating another time of being attentive to my spiritual life. Sometimes I am aware of what I bring to the moment, sometimes I am not. For Lent 2019, let us consider what we may take on as positive inner attitudes and fast from the aspects that keep us from being open to the loving presence of God.

JAIME AULT Financial planner, TD Wealth 5K Sweet

MAX PATEL KTW digital sales associate 5K Sweet

Training for any event can be difficult regardless of skill or fitness level. This week, I had a cold that kept me bedridden for three days, which meant I missed two training sessions. It’s easy to look at that and think of it as a setback, as a negative, but it’s not. Sometimes our bodies are telling us something and we don’t hear it until it’s too late. Or worse, we ignore it. We ignore an ache or push through our exhaustion when what we should be doing is finding out why we ache and why we’re exhausted. I spent three days sleeping and restoring my body. On Tuesday, I ran for the first time in months as I’ve been training inside during the winter. It was amazing. I felt like a whole new person. Overtraining is a very real thing, especially when just starting out. I was always told never to run two days in a row, but to walk instead. Time on your feet is how you should measure your success, according to RunClub+. You don’t have to do sprints or hit your peak heart rate to get in a good workout. Just turn up and be on your feet. Being active for that 45 minutes or one hour is always better than not turning up at all. If you’re not sure where to start with your Boogie the Bridge training, come see us this Monday at 6 p.m. at the Happyness Centre, 203-242 Victoria St. downtown. We’d love to train with you.

They say the hardest part of RunClub is showing up. In fact, they say it a lot because it’s true. I’m not going to lie — I really didn’t want to run on Tuesday night. I was tired, it was cold and, if I’m being honest, I was terrified. I went anyway and I am overjoyed that I did. Jo, the coaches and the entire Boogie team (I had no idea it takes so many people to organize this event) are all so encouraging, non-judgmental and understanding of all levels of runners. You feel like you’re not alone and maybe, just maybe, this 5K isn’t impossible. There were so many people there and Jo acknowledged that everyone is nervous. Then she told us, “It’s OK. We got you.” And they did. We started out slowly, walking for five minutes and running for one minute. There were many pick-ups, no one was left behind and I did it. The RunClub’s mantra is Movement is Change and I’m starting to believe it. I also think Newton’s first law of motion — an object in motion stays in motion, an object at rest stays at rest — applies here. I’m still not what I would classify as a runner, but I ran, I met new people, I felt better after doing it and I’m less nervous for next week. Plus, there were cookies at the end!

I went to my first RunClub training session on Tuesday. As it was bright and sunny outside, I was excited to run and was full of energy when I walked into the banquet room at the Sandman Signature Hotel downtown. Just before the introduction speech, I was talking to some known faces when I came across Wayne Richardson from Runners Sole. He had set up a shoe trial booth and asked me to take off my fancy blue runners and try a different pair. While I was putting on the new pair, Wayne educated me on the importance of wearing the right shoe according to my foot movement. He also complimented me by giving me the title of “A Schmuck.” Later, Jo Berry gave a great welcome speech and thanked everyone for coming out. She made sure no one felt nervous and, if anybody did, she was always available to help out. The motivational words she shared helped me to centre all my energy and focus on creating the right mindset before starting training. The coaches are going to help us train our body, mind and spirit together for running. We were then separated into different groups, where we went out with our coaches and started training. We ran for almost 45 minutes, with intervals of running for eight minutes and walking for three minutes. It was a great first session and I’m excited for next week.

No. 1 cause of injury is too much, too soon. Stick to the program and progress at a steady and safe pace.

Time to check in with your shoes. The No. 2 cause of injury is being in the wrong or a broken-down running shoe. Change shoes every six months.

Your goal is a strong 10K at Boogie. Start incorporating some hill training into one of your three weekly training sessions.

MOVEMENT IS CHANGE with Jo Berry, RunClub and Boogie the Bridge founder

Running can be for all bodies

T

here seems to be a common dialogue out there — that larger people shouldn’t run. Since I have spent many years training people to run, specifically those with larger bodies, I am committed to smashing that notion. Every day we learn about stereotypes of race, age, etc., yet one thing we often miss is the subtler stereotype around body size. As a coach, counsellor and personal trainer who works with many plus-size people, I face false assumptions about abundant bodies every day. Some of these false assumptions are: • bigger people shouldn’t run; • running is bad for the joints; • running is too strenuous; • running will lead to injuries; • running may lead to a heart Questions? attack. Go online to runclub.ca or send an email to I’ve really heard joberry@ it all. boogiethebridge.com. While some of these risks might be true for larger people, they are also true for thinner people. We shouldn’t warn an entire demographic of the potential hazards of running based on the assumption their bodies can’t cope with the demand. This actually robs millions of people from the incredible highs and enormous health benefits of running just because we’ve grown accustomed to these blanket statements. Anyone who runs can attest to the fact that corrals at 5Ks, 10Ks and marathon races overflow with diversity in age, ability and size. Size and athleticism can (and do) coincide. Running was the catalyst that changed my life and it is why I am so very passionate in convincing everybody who is curious about running to lace up. Our Abundant Bodies Program starts this Monday at 6 p.m. at the Happyness Centre, 203-242 Victoria St. downtown. Come on out and change your life.

Blazers still fighting for post-season life Blowout win over Royals coupled with Kelowna loss sets up monumental weekend for Interior WHL clubs KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A week ago, the Kamloops Blazers’ playoff hopes were bleak at best. Four straight wins later and with two games left in the regular season, the post-season is not only possible, but probable, based on the schedule and past results. Entering Western Hockey League play on Wednesday, Kamloops was two points behind Kelowna for third place in the B.C. Division and the final playoff spot. Kamloops scored the most goals in a game this season in an 8-0 whitewash of the visiting Victoria Royals. Meanwhile, in Kelowna, visiting Spokane blew a 5-2 third-period lead before winning 6-5 in overtime, the extratime loss giving the Rockets a crucial point. The results leave Kelowna with 62 points and Kamloops with 61 points. Both teams have two games remaining in the regular season. Kamloops will play a homeand-home series against Prince George this weekend. Prince George, with 44 points, is dead last in the 10-team Western Conference and the Blazers are 6-1 against the Cougars this season. Kelowna will play a home-andhome series against Vancouver this weekend. Vancouver, with 98 points, sits atop the Western Conference and the Giants are 6-1 against the Rockets this season. Kelowna travels to Langley on Friday to face the Giants (7:30 p.m. start), with Vancouver returning to the Okanagan for a Saturday contest against the Rockets (7:05 p.m. puck drop). Kamloops hosts Prince George on Friday in a 7 p.m. game and will travel to Prince George for a Saturday game at CN Centre, also getting underway at 7 p.m.

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Brodi Stuart celebrates a goal early in the Kamloops Blazers 8-0 shutout over Victoria in WHL action at Sandman Centre on Wednesday. Stuart, who also tallied four assists, scored at 12:51 of the first period to open the floodgates. The Blazers are one point back of Kelowna for third place in the B.C. Division, which means a spot in the post-season. Kamloops plays Prince George twice this weekend while Kelowna has a pair of games against Vancouver.

Whichever team makes the playoffs — Kamloops or Kelowna — will face Victoria in the opening round of the playoffs, with the Royals entrenched in second place in the B.C. Division. If the Blazers and Rockets are tied in points after this weekend’s action, a one-game tiebreaker

would be played on Tuesday to decide which team advances. The game’s host would be determined by which club had more wins. The second tiebreaker would be the winner of the season series. Either way, most scenarios would have Kamloops hosting the

potential play-in game. Meanwhile, in Wednesday’s win over Victoria, Kamloops scored three goals in a span of less than three minutes in the second period to blow the game open. Brodi Stuart had five points (one goal, four assists), Josh Pillar had four points (one goal, three

assists) and Jermaine Loewen recorded three points (one goal, two assists). Goaltender Dylan Garand stopped all 22 shots he faced to record the shutout win, with Kamloops outshooting Victoria 36-22 before a crowd of 3,371 at Sandman Centre.

Goalie joining TRU soccer from United Kingdom Oliver Juneau says university’s campus, location and facilities were a draw when choosing where to study, play KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

OLIVER JUNEAU

The Thompson Rivers University soccer team’s newest addition will be joining the WolfPack from across the pond. Oliver Juneau, a goalkeeper from Lancashire, U.K., is the program’s latest signing. Juneau, who has a Canadian mother and holds dual citizenship, said he is excited to come to Kamloops. “I first heard about TRU when I

was doing research about university soccer in Canada,” he said. “As soon as I saw the facilities, campus and location I immediately highlighted it as a school that I would love to go to.” TRU men’s soccer coach John Antulov said Juneau will be a welcome addition to the squad. “We are pleased to have Ollie join our program,” he said. “He will help solidify our group of GK for the coming years. He comes from a solid pedigree

Dwight Liburd won gold in long jump at 6.27 metres, also a new B.C. best and nine centimetres short of the national record, as well as gold in the 60-metre dash at 7.28 and in the 200-metre sprint at 24.37.

All-Canadian status for TRU’s Dobbert

WolfPack outside hitter from Germany receives first-team U Sports honours KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Thompson Rivers University volleyball player Tim Dobbert has earned one of U Sports’ highest honours, being named a first-team All-Canadian. Dobbert, a fifth-year outside hitter from Germany, recorded 701 kills in 43 matches played with the WolfPack in his U Sports career. “Tim belongs in that special group of alumni,” TRU mens’ volleyball head coach Pat Hennelly said. “It was an honour to have Tim a part of our program. Tim had a great year finishing fifth all-time in points, seventh in kills and 18th in kills per set. Tim is also an exceptional student athlete and an Academic All-Canadian.” Dobbert played just two years for TRU, coming to Kamloops after a stint at the NCAA’s Brigham Young University in Utah. This season, he led Canada West in kills with 379 and was second in kills per set. Dobbert, who holds an engineering degree from BYU, is just the second WolfPack volleyball player to earn AllCanadian status and Academic AllCanadian status “To add to all these accolades, Tim is a great person, excellent teammate and one of the hardest working guys on a team with great work ethic,” Hennelly said. “Tim never took a day off, even when we wanted him to, and was always in the weight room going above and beyond.” Dobbert is the third TRU volleyball player to earn All-Canadian first-team status, after Gord Perrin and Brad Gunter. TRU’s Kevin Tillie was named a second-team All-Canadian in 2011. Perrin, Gunter and Tillie all now play professional volleyball in Europe. — files from TRU Sports Information

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Swarn Kaur Ghog

Celebration of Life in Honour of Keith Studer May 16, 1958 January 1, 2019

John Michael (Mike) Grosskurth

March 5, 1939 - February 19, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Swarn Kaur Ghog on March 10, 2019.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mike Grosskurth.

Swarn was born on October 3, 1928 in Jagpalpur, Punjab (India). In 1948, she married the late Tara Singh Ghog of Athouli and five years later she and her eldest son Surinder Singh Ghog came to Canada to join her husband in Duncan, BC. Before settling in Merritt, BC with her husband and three children in 1959, Swarn’s early years in Canada were spent in Barriere, Little Fort and Kamloops. Swarn’s indomitable, feisty spirit combined with a formidable work ethic was the backbone to the family’s lumber business. The couple was also instrumental in establishing Merritt’s first Sikh Temple in 1970 and Swarn was eventually elected the Temple’s first female president. The family acquired the Grasslands Hotel in 1976, where Swarn assumed the role of overseeing daily operations. During this period, she became an active member of the Eastern Star and Daughters of the Nile. Swarn also generously donated her time and resources to help new arrivals from India.

A Celebration of Life for Keith Studer will be held at The Dunes at Kamloops, 652 Dunes Dr., Kamloops, BC on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 12:00 pm.

Swarn is survived by her children Surinder (Jenda), Sheila, and Paul, as well as grandchildren Rauvin, Julia, Simmarin, Andrew, Sonia and Chunan. She also leaves behind great-grandchildren Lee, Sylvan and Marla. Predeceased by her brother Charan Singh and her sister Harjinder Kaur, Swarn will also be dearly missed by her brother Manohar Singh and sister Harbhajan Kaur (Ajit), along with her many nieces and nephews. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019, at 11:00 am in the Schoening Funeral Chapel in Kamloops, BC. This will be followed by a service at the Merritt Sikh Temple. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

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.

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director

Every Friday in KTW!

Q. Do I need to buy an urn?

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. 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.

A. Some people make one. Some people buy one, but they can be expensive. Ashes come back from the crematorium in a cardboard box. For several years I’ve refused to give them back in a cardboard box, so we give an urn away. Check it out online or call us.

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

Murray Frederick Mason

Ronald David Kask

Murray was born on January 26, 1923 in Nelson, BC and passed away on March 4, 2019 in Kamloops, BC.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ronald David Kask on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at the age of 89.

He was raised in Cranbrook, BC. He was predeceased by his mother Winnie (Deacon) and father Ken, and brothers Lloyd and Gerry. After graduating from high school, Murray headed to Lethbridge to volunteer for the war and ended up working as a machinist apprentice at Riverside Ironworks, as part of the war effort.

He is survived by his wife of 66 years Rose, daughter Cynthia, son Maury (Kelly) and grandson Richard (Brittany). Predeceased by daughter Sharon Anne (1990).

In 1944, Murray relocated to Fort Simpson to work at the weather office. He always spoke fondly of his adventures and experiences in the North. From Fort Simpson, Murray moved to Fort McMurray and then to Calgary. While in Calgary he met the love of his life, Joan and they were married May 1, 1950. After the weather office Murray accepted a job with a new company called Neptune Meters, where he worked until he moved the family to Kamloops, BC in 1965. Murray and Joan made a bold decision to purchase a business called Interior Oil Installations and they both worked hard at the business for almost 20 years until they retired in 1983. Upon retirement Murray and Joan became “Snowbirds” and they had many trips down south to the Palm Desert area as well as exploring most areas of Canada and the North. When Murray moved to Kamloops in 1965, he immediately became a proud member of the City of Kamloops Rube Band. He was an active member for over 50 years and travelled with the Band on many great adventures. Murray also volunteered for over 10 years at The Red Cross where he could be found fixing all sorts of equipment and he especially enjoyed the tea and cookies at break time. Murray is survived by his wife of 68 years Joan, his son Dean (Judy) and daughter Brenda (Larry), four grandchildren Kevin (Tamara), Jeff (Lindsay), Blake and Sabrina (Mike), seven great-grandchildren Sage, Conrad, Zachary, Oliver, Amelia, Makayla and Norah, and sister-in-law Louise Dean and an abundance of nieces and nephews. The family would like to send out a special “Thank You” to Dr. Smillie and the staff at Pine Grove Care Centre. A Service of Remembrance will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 11:00 am in the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops, BC.

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.

He had a strong love for sports and spent numerous years as a volunteer with Kamloops Minor Hockey. He was a season ticket holder with the Kamloops Blazers since 1993 and a lifelong fan of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. His favourite pastime was watching his sons play hockey and talking for hours about his grandchildren. It was no secret that they were his pride and joy! We would like extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Miranda DuPreez and the staff and volunteers at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice for their care and compassion during his final days. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Kamloops Curling Rink on Saturday, April 27, 2019 starting at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, if so desired, donations can be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice or to the Movember Foundation, which was near and dear to his heart. Condolences may be sent to Norm’s family at DrakeCremation.com (250) 377-8225

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.

A legacy remembered, shared, and celebrated becomes a person uplifted and elevated to a new level of space, light and life. - Ty Howard He had a gentle understanding way about him and made those close to him feel special.
