Transgender flag flies above city hall JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Transgender flag is flying outside of Kamloops City Hall this week in advance of the International Transgender Day of Visibility, which is marked on March 31. The city erected a third flag pole last year to allow community groups the opportunity to raise their flags.

That program was suspended last fall, however, following legal advice the city received relating to a Sept. 11 BC Court of Appeal decision that ruled TransLink in the Lower Mainland erred in refusing a pro-life group the ability to run anti-abortion advertisements on its buses. Maria Mazzotta, Kamloops’ corporate officer, told KTW the city is honouring approvals granted prior to council’s decision to suspend the community flag pole program.

Approvals granted beforehand include the Transgender flag, the Rotary flag in May and the Kamloops Pride flag this summer. “Anything that was approved prior to that decision by council, we’re honouring,” Mazzotta said. Last summer, city council approved erecting the community flagpole outside of city hall at a cost of $4,000. The B.C. flag flies in the absence of community flags.

Police are urging drivers to be cautious when passing emergency vehicles and work crews after a crash in Kamloops late Monday sent two people to hospital. Emergency crews were called to a stretch of Highway 5 near Sun Rivers just before midnight on Monday after an Argo work truck was rear-ended by a semi and sent into the ditch. “An Argo road crew was work-

ing in the southbound lane and had blocked the lane with numerous signs,” RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said, noting the driver of the Argo truck was inside the vehicle at the time of the collision. Both the driver of the tractortrailer and the driver in the Argo vehicle were taken to Royal Inland Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Shelkie said the trucker was

ticketed for driving without due care and attention. “Kamloops RCMP asks all motorists to drive with caution at all times of the day,” she said. “Spring brings more work crews onto the highways and it’s important to be alert to signs redirecting traffic. Remember to slow down and move over into another lane when passing emergency vehicles and work crews.”

FIRE HYDRANT FLOW TESTING

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

Between March 15 and May 30, Kamloops Fire Rescue will be inspecting the City’s fire hydrants and conducting tests to ensure adequate flow and operation. The program will run from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, seven days a week. Please note that all private hydrant owners must also have their hydrants tested at this time.

April 3, 2019 2:00 pm - Finance Committee - Parcel Tax Review Panel Council Chambers, 7 Victoria Street West

Flow testing may result in poor water pressure and/or high turbidity levels. This situation is temporary and may last for up to four hours. If you detect turbidity, run a cold water tap and avoid doing laundry until the turbidity clears up.

April 8, 2019 2:30 pm - Community Services Committee Executive Boardroom, 7 Victoria Street West

Please assist us by keeping shrubs and trees pruned back from fire hydrants. Fire Prevention Bylaw No. 10-37 requires a minimum of 1 m clearance around a hydrant in all directions for the safety of emergency and maintenance personnel. Please ensure any trees, shrubs, or landscaping are kept out of this working area.

April 8, 2019 4:00 pm - Community Relations Committee Corporate Boardroom, 7 Victoria Street West

As always, please be reminded that vehicles are not to be parked within 5 m of a fire hydrant, measured from either side. Kamloops Fire Rescue thanks citizens for doing their part to keep fire hydrants accessible at all times.

TRANSIT FUTURE ACTION PLAN

CREATE A FIRESMART PROPERTY

SPRING STREET SWEEPING UNDERWAY

The City, along with BC Transit, is in the process of updating the Kamloops Area Transit Future Plan, which was completed in 2012.

Kamloops Fire Rescue wants to remind residents of the importance of creating FireSmart properties. Falling embers can travel as far as 2 km! Taking the proper precautions can protect your property in the event of a wildfire.

WATCH FOR SIGNS IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

As a number of the projects identified in the 2012 plan are underway or have been completed, it is important that the transit priorities be updated to continue to guide decision-making over the lifespan of the guiding document. The public is invited to contribute to the Transit Future Action Plan through an online survey and mapping tool. These are both open for input until April 8. The Transit Future Action Plan will provide a vision for improving the region’s transit network over the next three to five years. Full details on the plan and how you can participate can be found online at: LetsTalk.Kamloops.ca/TransitAction

Here are some quick FireSmart tips for your home: • remove debris such as leaves, twigs, and needles from around the house and under decks • keep lawns mowed and irrigated, and choose FireSmart plants for your yard • keep firewood piles and other items stacked at least 10 m from the house, especially during wildfire season • ensure your roof is clean and fire-resistant and your home's eavestroughs are clean • remove trees, bushes, and other combustible materials from the first 10 m around home (e.g. junipers and hedges) To learn more about creating a FireSmart property visit: Kamloops.ca/FireSmart

Street sweeping is happening over the next several weeks. Residents can help City crews by parking their vehicles off the street when work is underway. Did you know that City crews sweep each road and most sidewalks (and every concrete island) using large sweeping trucks, sidewalk sweepers, water trucks, and other equipment? Currently, crews are in North Kamloops, Brocklehurst, and Westsyde. Once they're done in those areas, they will move to Batchelor, Valleyview, and Downtown. Crews will focus on higher elevations in the next few weeks. Signs have been posted to inform residents when crews are working in specific neighbourhoods. To view the streets that have been swept and to see the upcoming areas, view the City's new street sweeping map at: Maps.Kamloops.ca/StreetSweeping

Eight Kamloops cases in B.C. unidentified remains database KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The provincial government has launched an online tool in a bid to generate tips from the public in solving cases involving unidentified human remains. The government’s website contains a provincial map showing locations of where identified remains have been found, all cases that remain unsolved and involving deceased people for whom police are seeking identities. The unidentified human remains interactive viewer, which can be found online at tinyurl.com/yxah8kbf, includes almost 200 cases dating back to 1953. There are eight cases of unidentified remains in the area patrolled by Kamloops RCMP, including five males, two females and one of unknown sex: • On Oct. 28, 2012, the body of a man of unknown race, somewhere between the age of 18 and 40, was found in the hills below Juniper Ridge. The body had been there anywhere from 10 to 50 years. • On Sept. 24, 1996, the body of a white woman, between the age of 20 and 34, was found near Chuwhels Lake south of Greenstone Mountain. The body had been there for between six months and five years. This unidentified remains case is the lone one in Kamloops that carries with it a sketch of the deceased. • On March 15, 1991, the body of a baby girl was found in Valleyview, near the frontage road between Robin Road and Oriole Road. The baby was one years old or younger and the body had been there for between one day and one week. • On Aug. 21, 1988, the body of a man of unknown race was found on the north shore of Kamloops Lake, at Red Point across from Tobiano.

The man, who stood 5-foot-9, was between 30 and 40 years of age and his body had been there for between two and six weeks. • On April 30, 1983, the body of a white man was found in Kamloops Lake between Tobiano and Savona, near Six Mile Point. He was between 30 and 40 years of age, stood 5-foot-9 and had black hair. The body had been there between one and six months. A blue checkered shirt was on the body when it was discovered and various tattoos were noted, including “Edna” on the right arm. On the left arm were tattoos saying “Mary C,” “Love,” “Marlene,” a crossed-out “Karene,” a bird and a horseshoe. • On April 10, 1983, a body of unknown age, sex or race was found on the shore of Kamloops Lake, just southwest of Tranquille Farms. It had been there for between six months and five years. • On Nov. 9, 1970, the body of a white man between the age of 30 and 50 was found on the north shore of Kamloops Lake, just east of the community of Frederick. The body had been at the location for between one and six months. The man was 5-feet, 8-inches tall and was wearing a white T-shirt, cream or light shirt, offwhite pants, blue boxers with flowered design, a 36-inch dark blue narrow leather belt and blue socks. The body had no natural teeth and lower dentures were found at the site. • On July 17, 1970, the body of an Aboriginal man between the age of 25 and 35 was found in the Tranquille River near Cooney Bay. He was 5-foot-10 in height, had brown hair and the body had been in the water for between one week and one month.

On the body was a blue nylon jacket, black jeans and brown Italian shoes. BC Coroners Service spokesman Andy Watson said the goal is to generate new leads in the nearly 200 unsolved cases. “The whole aim of this thing is to provide families with closure and bring answers to them,” Watson said. Each entry on the map shows the approximate location where the remains were found, case numbers for contact purposes and a summary of key information related to each unresolved case. The earliest file listed on the site is the 1953 Babes in the Woods case involving two boys found dead in Stanley Park. The most recent case involves remains that were found last year. A similar map exists in the United States, called the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, but Watson said he believes this is a first for Canada. “We know that nationally, there’s nothing in place that closely resembles this,” he said. “Longer term, the hope is that we can work with other provinces and get this into a national system.” Watson said the BC Coroners Service took the initiative on the project because its mandate is to answer the question of who died, as well as how, where, when and by what means. “When we’re missing one of the answers to our five questions, from an investigation standpoint, we don’t feel our work is complete,” he said. “For somebody in the public that’s thinking, ‘Oh, well maybe I have something to offer, but I’m not sure,’ our message is, it may be that missing puzzle piece that links two or three other pieces together that we need to determine the identity.” — with files from Canadian Press

Two years for carrying loaded shotgun CHARLES PATRICK PLEADED GUILTY PRIOR TO THE MARCH 27 SENTENCING TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops man arrested in 2013 with a loaded shotgun hidden under his jacket was handed a two-year prison sentence on Wednesday after pleading guilty in B.C. Supreme Court to possessing a prohibited firearm with ammunition. After being given credit for time served prior to sentencing, Charles Patrick, 62, has about 525 days left on his sentence. He pleaded guilty prior to his sentencing on Wednesday. Patrick was driving an SUV in Kamloops on Dec. 11, 2013, when he was pulled over by police. During the traffic stop, an officer saw Patrick fumbling with something inside the vehicle. When the Mountie asked whether Patrick had “something” on him, he replied yes and told her he was in possession of a shotgun. The firearm under his jacket was loaded. Police then raided his home, finding what a Crown prosecutor later called a “chop shop” to illegally modify guns. However, in November 2015, the Crown was forced to stay charges against Patrick after Justice Hope Hyslop ruled police actions breached his rights under

they broke down the door to his trailer and found the guns inside. In January 2016, the Crown appealed Hyslop’s ruling to the B.C. Court of Appeal. In February 2017, the B.C. Court of Appeal overturned part of Hyslop’s ruling. It ordered a new trial on three charges relating to the shotgun seized at roadside, but ruled five other charges could not proceed. Lawyers for Patrick were then given leave to appeal the B.C. Court of Appeal decision to the Supreme Court of Canada, where a three-judge panel on the country’s highest court ordered Patrick to stand trial on the shotgun charges. Patrick is also facing unrelated charges in connection with a high-profile investigation into explosives, firearms and drugs that included a police raid of a downtown warehouse in January. Patrick is facing charges of possessing a prohibited weapon, possession of ammunition for the purpose of committing an offence and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000. In that instance, Patrick was released on bail in January. Patrick wrote a letter to the editor of KTW, professing his innocence. That letter was published on Jan. 16.

Tk’emlups archeologist ‘excited’ to see West Vic site JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Tk’emlups te Secwpemec archeologist said it is “really difficult to say” whether First Nations artifacts could be discovered during the West Victoria Street reconstruction project, which will see work begin next month in one of the oldest parts of Kamloops. The city is reconstructing the road, replacing utilities, improving pedestrian access and beautifying the downtown arterial route, a $13-million project that could take up to two years. “It’s been built up for 100 years or so,” TTS archeologist Ryan Dickie said of West Victoria Street. “Until we get into the ground, until we see the dirt or the soil, it’s really difficult to say. “But what I can say is Tk’emlups people have been here forever, for 10,000 years. There’s not likely a square inch of this area that hasn’t seen a footprint, so we’ll see.” In the 1900s, West Victoria Street was called Main Street. The city said it was the first street in Kamloops, home to Chinatown, hotels, a saloon and the post office. TTS ties prior to that remain unclear. Dickie said historical records were lost during

early colonial times. “This is an exciting opportunity to go and explore a previously unexplored area in a very unique spot,” he said. “You can’t see it, but we’re just across from the confluence [of the North and South Thompson rivers], which is a very, very important location in the landscape.” Engineering consultant Golder Associates has been hired to lead archeological field work, while TTS and the city will help manage the project. City capital projects manager Darren Crundwell said when it comes to archeological discoveries during construction projects, the city follows provincial legislation — the Heritage Conservation Resource Act. He also emphasized the importance of working with TTS. Archeological finds, however, can result in construction delays and the question of what lies beneath is one of the West Victoria Street project’s many challenges. Archeological discovery delayed the opening of the Heffley Creek Bridge, which was completed last August. Crundwell, however, said the city has plans in place and pointed to the Valleyview Drive BC Hydro project last year, which included discovery of ancestral remains.

“They had everything in place. They’ve got proper plans working with the First Nations and it’s just a matter of working in that area, dealing with it properly and then continuing on,” he said. “Are we expecting to find a whole bunch of stuff here? We don’t know. You never know and that’s the challenge with a project like this. It’s all developed. “We can’t go in there and do a bunch of testing, but we want to be prepared. We’ve got a backup plan for everything, not only archeology, but the transition of all of the services, as well.” ABOUT THOSE ANCESTRAL REMAINS Dickie said remains discovered during the BC Hydro project in Valleyview last year were sent for radio-carbon dating. He participated in the recovery and said the person could not be identified. Though they cannot be certain, Dickie said it was an isolated discovery and the remains were likely transplanted to Valleyview as part of road infill. “Some gravel deposit somewhere was excavated, turned into road fill and placed there,” he said. The bone will be reburied on the Tk’emlups reserve at a later date and a reinterment ceremony will be held.

WEST VIC PROJECT DETAILS Construction is expected to begin on April 15 and last from 18 months to two years. Work will be done in four stages, with crews digging down about 12 feet one phase at a time. The biggest challenge is making space in the narrow corridor for the new pipes that will be laid next to the old ones from 1907, which will remain active until the new utilities are online. Once the pipes are replaced, the roadwork and landscaping will follow, then it’s on to the next section, though there will be some overlap between stages. Stage one — beginning next month — will involve tearing up West Victoria Street from BCLC to The Mustard Seed New Life Community. Temporary twoway traffic will be in place on one-way Seymour Street. The timeline for completion of that phase is the end of July. For stage two, the south-side lanes of West Victoria Street between the bridge and Seymour Street will

Work on the second stage is expected to last from mid-May to mid-September, stage three from mid-July to mid-November and stage four from the beginning of October to the middle of December. The remainder of the work — through the winter and into next summer — will involve tying up loose ends of the project. Power poles won’t come down until the new lines are in the ground, so their removal and portions of the south sidewalk will be completed in the spring of 2020, followed by installing the final layer of asphalt. Traffic congestion is expected and the city is asking motorists have patience during the roadwork. Though one lane in and out of downtown through the construction zone will be in place at all times.

THE QUEST TO ASSIGN BLAME

A

massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15 left 50 people dead and many others injured. Attacks such as these, targeting Muslim worshippers, are becoming far too common. But some of the responses have been completely inappropriate. Instead of sympathy, some have worked either to distance themselves from these attacks or to point fingers and assign blame. Australian Sen. Fraser Anning blamed Muslim immigration for the tragedy. “Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?” he stated in a tweet. A lengthy manifesto written by the alleged shooter has detailed references to a far-right ideology and white supremacy. Understanding this motivation is an important part in preventing similar attacks from happening in the future. But some on the political right have stated that the actions of the shooter should not be seen as a representation of right-wing politics. Rush Limbaugh, an American conservative commentator and talk show host, went even further. In a broadcast on March 15 — only hours after the massacre — Limbaugh speculated the shooter was someone from the political left, committing the horrible deeds in order to make his political opponents look bad. “You can’t immediately discount this,” he said on his radio show. “The left is this insane. They are this crazy.” Such speculation is not only implausible but also extremely cruel and insensitive, using a tragedy as a political positioning tool. Assigning blame does nothing to explain why this tragedy happened, nor can it undo or alter the events. It is understandable to feel sadness, shock, horror, revulsion, anger or confusion when massive acts of violence occur. The quest to point fingers and place blame will benefit no one. — Summerland Review

t’s likely you or someone you know have children who were swept up in the recent Student Strike 4 Climate that was staged in B.C. communities and around the world, at least in places where citizens are still free to take to the streets. Naturally staged on a Friday afternoon, students skipped class to march on government offices to wave placards. The largest rally in B.C. was at the legislature, where Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps and Green MLAs were enthusiastic supporters. The chants will be familiar to those who have seen striking teachers and other unions do the same, generally on behalf of their pocketbooks rather than the planet. “What do we want? Climate action! When do we want it? Now!” Leaving aside for a moment what they mean by “climate action,” what lesson is conveyed by these demonstrations? That’s obvious. The way to get what you want is to refuse to carry out your responsibilities and yell at elected leaders to do what you want them to do. Debate is not allowed. This won’t be a new experience for parents who depend on B.C. public schools. The climate action demands are also familiar. Stop the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion and the LNG Canada gas pipeline and export terminal project in northern B.C. Oh, and stop all industrial logging in “ancient temperate

VICTORIA rainforests on Vancouver Island,” which is such a staple of Victoria protests it gets thrown in for every march. By this time, most people know taxpayers of Canada now own the 65-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline and its expansion has been guaranteed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. A futile effort by the B.C. NDP government to assert jurisdiction over this interprovincial infrastructure has begun at taxpayer expense at the B.C. Court of Appeal. Canada’s attorney general, among others, has submitted to the court that this is “unconstitutional.” The LNG Canada project is supported by Premier John Horgan and Opposition Leader Andrew Wilkinson, representing 83 of the 87 seats in the legislature. It is opposed by three B.C. Green MLAs and a far-left fringe network that includes the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. Organizers of the Unist’ot’en anti-pipeline protest camp

in northwestern B.C. proudly display a declaration from the BCTF that it stands “in solidarity with the hereditary chiefs and the Wet’suwet’en people” against the project. In fact a splinter group of hereditary chiefs and their supporters are opposed, while elected band councils (representing the vast majority of actual people) all along the pipeline route are in favour. According to student climate strike organizers in Victoria, total elimination of carbon fuel use has to happen in 10 years. The inconvenient truth is that there is no possible way to do this without economic collapse. There is no other way to grow and deliver food and other necessities to B.C. residents in anything near that time frame. The BCTF urges people to “act on your positions of influence as teachers and community members by attending public information sessions, teach-ins, marches, rallies and other events that raise awareness of the devastating impacts of climate change and fossil fuel extraction.” Horgan’s government is preparing new tax incentives to deliver the LNG Canada project, arguing it will replace more carbon-intensive fuels and net the province $40 billion over its life to provide necessary services and employment. Students are getting a different message: democratic governments don’t matter. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

SOME THOUGHTS ON BEING TRANSGENDER Editor: Sunday, March 31, is the Transgender Day of Visibility, a day to celebrate transgender people and raise awareness of the discrimination we face across the globe. I am a transgender woman. I was born and raised in Kamloops and have lived here almost my entire life. However, it took me a long, long time to realize I was transgender. It took me more than 30 years to finally understand that what made me different was just an example of the incredible vari-

ety of human existence — and not something of which to be ashamed. Why did it take more than three decades? Because of transphobia and ignorance, not just that of others, but my own. Being trans is much better than it was and the steps other pathfinders took certainly helped me find my way, but we still have a long, long way to go. For a long time, I was in denial that I was trans and I don’t know if I could have “cracked my egg” earlier, but here’s some of

what I wish someone had said to me: You don’t have to “know from childhood.” This “fact” is insidious. Transfolk who know from an early age are the ones who have the worst case of gender dysphoria. Many, if not most, of us didn’t start realizing we were different until puberty. You don’t have to “hate your body.” Cisgender people (those whose gender identity matches the sex they were assigned at birth) generally like being their gender. Humans have an amazing

ability to rationalize that which they think they can’t change. Wanting to be the other gender is enough. You don’t have to have gender dysphoria constantly. For most people, it comes and goes in waves. It is intense sometimes and not so bad at other times. But you should know it doesn’t get better with age. While this doesn’t apply to me, you don’t have to just be female or male. Gender is a spectrum. Non-binary people exist. Some feel like they’re part female and male simultaneously.

Some feel female or male at different times. Some people don’t feel like they are any gender at all. Finally, if you think you’re transgender, you probably are. Cisgender people just don’t obsess about this subject like transgender people do. They certainly don’t think about it daily for weeks, months and years. Boys don’t want to be girls — or vice versa. You’re trans enough. Deanna Gilbert Kamloops

TRY TO GET PARKING SAGEBRUSH CLOSURE SHOWS NEED FOR A PAC TICKET FORGIVEN Editor: Re: The recent letters from Katharine Ferguson (‘End all pay parking at hospitals in B.C.’) and Ivan Somlai (‘Parking enforcement at hospital is heartless’): I was ticketed last month at Royal Inland Hospital. I paid for four hours and knew my time was up, but I was in a hospital gown, having tests done, so I could hardly go out to pay. There was a phone number on the ticket. I called and explained why I had let the time expire and they forgave the charge. I totally agree with the sentiments expressed by Ferguson and Somlai, but although you shouldn’t have to, you can get the ticket forgiven quite easily. Linda Davidson Kamloops

Editor: Residents of Kamloops, let’s not forget about our need for a new theatre. If the situation with Sagebrush Theatre isn’t a wake-up call, what is? Sagebrush is closed until at least September due to a cracked truss in the roof. We have an offer from Kelson Group owner Ron Fawcett of some land next to city-owned land downtown to build a new theatre complex. He has also had the renderings completed. Let’s take advantage of this. What are your thoughts, Kamloops?

Tranquille grassfire deemed human-caused BUT HOW THE MARCH 18 BLAZE STARTED HAS NOT BEEN DETERMINED BY FIRE INVESTIGATORS MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

The first wildfire of the season, which was sparked near Tranquille Farms on March 18, has been ruled human-caused, though it’s still unclear how it started. “We do have reports of people being in that area at the time, so it’s a humancaused fire, but that’s about it — don’t know if it was accidental or on purpose,” said Kamloops Fire Rescue’s chief fire prevention officer Dean Olstad. There were no signs of non-human ignition sources in the areas, such as lightning, but not did fire investigators find humancaused ones, such as a campfire or cigarette butt, Olstad told KTW. Nearly two-dozen city and forestry firefighters were called to put out the twohectare grassfire that burned up a hill to the west of Tranquille River. The blaze’s area of origin was traced to a spot approximately 50 metres down a trail off Tranquille-Criss Creek Road. Anyone spending time in forested areas are advised to be mindful of their surroundings, Olstad said, noting that hot undercarriages of off-road vehicles parked on tall, dry grass can also be a source of igniting a wildfire. That blaze was the first grassfire or wildfire of the season in Kamloops and was followed by a March 22 grassfire along the

South Thompson River in Dallas. That fire was believed to have been caused by a scrub blaze, which was burning for more than a month and ignited nearby grass once the snow in the area melted. This week, the BC Wildfire Service issued a warning that, as warmer weather returns to parts of the province affected by last summer’s wildfires, some hot spots could re-emerge due to what are called overwintering fires. An overwintering fire can occur when a wildfire that burned deep underground last year has continued to smoulder through the winter. Given the extent and intensity of many wildfires in the summer of 2018, the wildfire service noted, some residual hot spots could flare up with the arrival of warmer and drier weather this spring. Most overwintering fires will occur within the original fire’s perimeter and the wildfire service said many areas near communities where wildfires burned last year are being patrolled by firefighters and scanned using thermal-imaging technology. To report a wildfire, unattended campfire or open burning violation, call 1-800663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cellphone. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories, go online to bcwildfire.ca.

JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Based on the most recent provincial snowpack data, staff say the City of Kamloops is in a much better position than last year, with the South Thompson snowpack at 83 per cent of normal and the North Thompson snowpack at 100 per cent of normal, based on measurements taken on March 1. “Much better looking picture at this point than what we were seeing last year, but we are never out of the woods here,” City utility services manager Greg Wightman told council on Tuesday. “An extended period of hot weather or a large rain event can change that pretty quickly.” After flooding in recent years, the city continues to improve its flood plan and Wightman noted it has one of the best in the province. Wightman said the city uses survey

data and a GIS tool to drive decisionmaking, with some responses including closing boat launches, removing the railing at the Riverside Park pier, sealing off catch basins and installing flood pumps. New this year, residents can locate the nearest catch basin to their home through a new GIS tool, which can be found online at tinyurl.com/yxzdhxwy. The city has been encouraging residents to keep catch basins clear through the spring melt. Residents can punch in their address on the app to find catch basins within 100 metres to 500 metres of their homes. Wightman said this year had “great results. “We were able to get through the melting of the snow on the streets without any major problems,” he said. Capital projects on the books later this year include a $250,000 plan in Campbell Creek that will see a third culvert installed across

Barnhartvale Road. But that will not be in place in time to deal with this year’s freshet. The city will also be working on a $150,000 to $200,000 project in the Noble Creek area north of Westsyde, re-establishing the stream channel — previous freshet seasons pushed the stream to one side of the culvert under Westsyde Road — in addition to work at the base of the bridge. “This is just preventative,” Wightman said, noting there are no structural or safety concerns with the culvert. The city has also applied for grant funding to conduct flood mitigation work at Riverside Park. That project also includes beautification and a skating rink, which is proposed to be installed on the existing footprint of the spray park. More information about flooding can be found online at kamloops.ca/ flooding.

TNRD directors vote themselves pay raise JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Thompson-Nicola Regional District board directors voted themselves pay raises on Thursday, but the decision was not unanimous and included plenty of debate. Before the final vote, Area P director Mel Rothenburger tried to amend the pay raise so it is adjusted to 2018 rates, plus a 2.7 per cent increase as per the consumer price index. His motion was supported by a number of directors, including Kamloops councillors Dale Bass and Arjun Singh and Clearwater Mayor Merlin Blackwell, though it was defeated. “Who here is in it for the money? That’s not what it’s about,” Rothenburger said. The board eventually voted to give itself a pay raise, upon which time director David Laird asked if any of the opposed directors wished to oppose their remuneration increase. No immediate responses were forthcoming and TNRD CAO Sukh Gill said directors can come forward at a later time, should they wish to bow out of the pay raise. Those opposed to the pay raise included Bass and fellow Kamloops councillors Singh and Kathy Sinclair, Rothenburger, Blackwell and Sun Peaks Mayor Al Raine. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian and Kamloops Coun. Mike O’Reilly were among directors who voted in favour of the pay raise. Rothenburger made motion asking for investigation of electronic voting as there is no official tabulation of votes at TNRD meetings, which feature more than 20 directors. During a committee

of the whole meeting in February, the board approved sending a revision of its remuneration bylaw to a board meeting. Electoral area directors will see a 19-percent increase (to $23,700 from $19,875 in 2018), while municipal directors (including the five Kamloops council members on the board) will get an 11-per-cent increase (to $14,400 from $13,028). In addition, the board chair, Kamloops-area resident Ken Gillis, will receive an increase of 18 per cent (to $46,300 from $39,100), while vice-chair Steven Rice of Spences Bridge will see an increase of 27 per cent (to $28,200 from $22,213). Per meeting pay will also increase to $160 from $150 and there is also the addition of emergency response pay, at $160 per meeting. There is also an increase in the perkilometre travel rate, to 58 cents from 55 cents. The regional district bases its remuneration on nine surrounding regional districts, some of which raised their wages to compensate for federal legislative changes eliminating a tax break for politicians. Based on that, TNRD’s remuneration was determined to be below average. Singh called the issue of political pay raises an “awkward process” and suggested a committee be struck to deal with the issue. “If we had a way of actually engaging with the community on this, there would still be opposition, but to me there would be a better process,” he said. Rice said as a farmer of more than 30 years, he needs the money and said he is “offended” by the fact it is implied all directors are in the same financial situation.

@KamThisWeek

“We’re doing the right thing already as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

Bass said she is in a position that she does not need the pay raise, though she under-

stands some people do need the money. She called it a “loselose discussion” being

hear difficult and emotional details of a case that can take a toll on their mental health,” said Judy Darcy, B.C.’s minister of mental health and addictions. “Making sure that jurors have access to the mental-health services to help them work through their experiences is vital. “Through the new Juror Support Program, they now have the support they deserve.” Under the program, all B.C. jurors will have access to four confidential, in-person oneon-one sessions with a counsellor for up to six months after their verdict. Jurors will also be given self-care information, the government said in a release, and will be offered debriefing resources following a verdict. “I am pleased these resources are now available to jurors in our province,” B.C. Attorney General David Eby said. “British Columbians who serve on juries are participating in an important public service and they should have access to the appropriate supports and the beginning of a trial and after their jury duty is complete.” Swan said she welcomes the changes, but hopes more will be done soon. “I think it’s a step in the right direction,” she said. “Does it meet all the recommendations in the report? No. But I think it’s great the government is recognizing chances to improve.”

in a 2016 first-degree murder trial in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops. Following the trial, Swan wrote a letter to the provincial government and then Ottawa describing her experiences. She was then called to testify in front of a federal committee looking at Canada’s jury system. “It was an intense experience,” Swan told KTW, speaking about her time as a juror. “From that experience, just watching, seeing what I was doing, the experience I could see, you could just see the toll it took on people. It’s a challenging toll.” Last year, the federal government released an 80-page report that included 11 recommendations to improve the experience for jurors in Canada. The recommendations included expanded pre-trial education, debriefing sessions, psychological support and loosening the Criminal Code’s strict secrecy rules, as well as increasing allowance, improving the jurors’ environment and information-sharing between provinces and territories. Following the recommendations made by the committee before which Swan testified, B.C.’s provincial government has unveiled the Juror Support System — a series of supports for people who have served on juries. “As part of a juror’s civic duty, people often

Federal minister talks business with chamber MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Small business services and larger trade deals were among issues on the minds of Kamloops Chamber of Commerce members when federal Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion Mary Ng visited Kamloops this week. The MP for Markham-Thornhill in Ontario took questions during a Tuesday meeting at Tumbleweeds Lounge in the Plaza Hotel, kicked off by chamber president Joshua Knaak, who asked about how the federal government can help small businesses struggling to secure capital dollars. Ng pointed to the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) as one option to consider, noting entrepreneurs between the ages 18 and 39 can get access to a $15,000 loan to start a business — with qualifying entrepreneurs eligible for another $30,000 through BDC’s start-up program. “It’s a great start,” Ng said, adding that the real value of the program is the mandatory twoyear mentorship service that goes along with those dollars.

Another member asked Ng if her ministry had any programs or services surrounding succession planning for small business owners. Ng said there currently are no such programs, but it’s something her ministry is looking into. “I have been hearing it from the chambers, from businesses,” she said. Larger economic issues were also on the minds of chamber members. Tim Shoults, a chamber board member and operations manager for Aberdeen Publishing, which owns KTW, asked what Canada’s backup plan is to ensure trade with Britain in the event of a hard Brexit from the European Union in mid-April. “We will work with the U.K. on an arrangement that will allow for the trade to continue to occur between Canada and the U.K.,” Ng said.

HOLMES IS WHERE THE My email inbox was full last week with so many messages. The missives were not about matchmaking; they were about the announcement that Schitts Creek is calling it quits after the sixth season next year. Our family has a weird obsession with the CBC show starring Eugene Levy and his son, Daniel, the duo who created the popular comedy. My first husband and our kids even dress up as Schitts Creek characters for photos. My daughter has a unique art taxidermy business and went so far as to create a rat taxidermy scene of the show’s characters — and they ended up being featured a couple of weeks ago on the Late Show with James Corden. Tuesdays will not be the same without Schitts Creek. I can’t imagine finding another show as special to fill its place. But of course I do realize that it’s just a TV show. What, then, does this have to do with matchmaking? Keep reading. I received an email from a young woman who wanted to learn more about this new, old-fashioned process of matchmaking. We were emailing back and forth to schedule a time for coffee. A few days later, I received these exact words from her: “Hey, Tara, guess what? I managed to find someone online, so I’m good for now.” Those words — “good for now” — stopped me in my tracks. Good

for now? Seriously? She sounded like someone who was hangry and could not wait until dinner, so she had to have an afternoon nibble to hold her over. I am flabbergasted at some of the stories I am hearing about online dating. The computer really was a great place to find love 10 or 15 years ago, back when people were still a little embarrassed to admit they were doing it. Today, though, people are waiting in line at Save-On-Foods, swiping for dates until they can be checked out at the till. Have people really become this disposable? It’s one thing looking for a meal replacement or a new TV series to fill the void, but to try to fill your open month with someone to date just seems wrong. I know it’s spring and the idea of a new relationship blooming is tempting. However, consider joining RunClub or a book club, or going to Volunteer Kamloops — and reward yourself by giving back. Get out into nature and hike. Once you are feeling happy and ready to give the best of you to a partner, contact me. Relationships are hard work. They are not 50/50. They are 100/100. So, look after yourself first and then, when you are truly ready and nourished on the inside, contact me by email at holmes@ wheretheheartis.ca. Meanwhile, I need to track down Daniel Levy and get him to reconsider. Ew, David!

Ng about the government’s decision path for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, given the economic impact it will have

on small businesses. Ng, acknowledging it is an important project for Canadian communities, said the government doesn’t have an exact timeline, but noted it is working as fast as possible. With the National Energy Board endorsing the project, the federal government — which in August 2018 bought the pipeline from Kinder Morgan for $4.5 billion — is expected to make a decision on the twinning proposal on Nov. 22. Addressing the SNC-Lavalin controversy that has seen multiple defections from the Liberal caucus, Ng said she is confident the ethics commissioner will sort out the issue. Ng said she respects her colleagues, noting decisions to resign are theirs to make. She said as a minority woman, her experience at the cabinet table has not resembled what is playing out publicly in the SNC-Lavalin controversy. “I can assure you the prime minister creates an environment that allows us to speak freely, that allows for vigorous debate. We have those conversations around the cabinet table. That is my experience as a cabinet minister under this administration,” Ng said.

Victoria urges Kamloops to copy its bag ban bylaw JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Victoria City Hall has lessons for city hall on Victoria Street as council debates whether to ban businesses from using single-use plastic bags, straws and cutlery. Coun. Dale Bass’s notice of motion will be debated next Tuesday. If approved, staff will be directed to draft a bylaw by May 28, impacting all business licence holders in the city. While the issue has been raised by Bass and local environmental advocates, similar bans have been enacted around the world and regulations are taking shape throughout the province. It has been nine months since Victoria banned plastic bags at the checkout — one step toward a zero-waste strategy — and the city’s bylaw has since become a model for other B.C. communities. The checkout bag regulation bylaw came into effect in July 2018, though enforcement began six months later, in January. That phase-in period, which allowed businesses to use up their inventory of plastic bags and source new products, was the most important aspect of the new rules, according to Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps. Businesses are no longer allowed to provide plastic bags for the purpose of transporting items purchased, including everything from groceries to take-out food. The use of paper bags is permitted, as long as they contain at least 40 per cent recycled paper and stores charge at least 15 cents for them (rising to 25 cents this summer). Additionally, reusable bags must be sold for at least $1 (rising to $2 this summer). Exemptions to the plastic bag ban include: bulk items, including produce; loose hardware items, such as nails and bolts; frozen food wrap, wrapped flowers or potted plants; protection of prepared foods or bakery goods; prescription drugs; transport of live fish, protection of linens or bedding or similar items that do not easily fit in a reus-

able bag; protection of newspapers delivered to doorsteps and protection of clothes after dry cleaning or professional laundering. Thrifty Foods on Fairfield Road in Victoria stopped using plastic bags prior to the ban. Assistant grocery manager Boomer Horton told KTW banning the bag helped the store reduce its environmental footprint. It was also a good business decision, he said, due to desire for such an initiative by customers. “A lot of people in the area where we work, where our store is, are environmentally friendly people,” Horton said. Helps said it is too early to determine how much waste has been diverted as a result of the ban, but noted Victorians previously used 17-million plastic bags annually. A city report notes plastic bags represented an estimated one to two per cent of the total landfill waste stream, with between 160,000 and 330,000 bags reaching the landfill each year and an unknown number left as litter and not collected. Similar to Kamloops, Victoria’s curbside recycling program, which is managed by the Capital Regional District through Recycle BC, does not allow plastic bag collection. Instead, residents must drop off plastic bags and overwrap at depots. Helps, however, expects the ban will make a significant impact environmentally and economically, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and landfill costs to the city, savings she expects will trickle down to taxpayers. She said the ban has gone more smoothly than she imagined, with the initiative fitting the community’s values. The bylaw, however, has faced hurdles, including two years of consultations with the business community and legal obstacles. According to a story in the Victoria Times Colonist, the bylaw was challenged in court by the Canadian Plastic Bag Association, which argued the city does not have jurisdiction to prohibit busi-

nesses from providing plastic bags and that environmental regulations require provincial approval. The bylaw was upheld last summer by the B.C. Supreme Court. Helps recommends other communities take Victoria’s bylaw and use it word for word. Salmon Arm is one such community heeding that advice. The Shuswap town is in the midst of a public consultation stage as it seeks to adopt Victoria’s checkout bag regulation bylaw. One added benefit of being on the same page, Helps said, is consistency for chain stores. City of Salmon Arm executive assistant Caylee Simmons told KTW feedback has so far been positive, but she noted some retailers have taken issue with the requirement to charge customers for paper bags. They instead wish to incur the costs as a business. The North Okanagan Regional District is also exploring a ban, as is Vancouver, which is believed to be the first city in Canada to approve a ban on plastic straws, included in a zero-waste strategy to be phased in by 2040. Bass’s notice of motion includes straws and expands upon banning just the plastic bag. “I just thought, let’s ask for a little bit more, but leave it wide open for admin to look at the whole thing,” Bass said. “Come up with an idea, come up with a bylaw, come up with an engagement process … and let’s do it. Let’s not just talk about it, let’s do it. Because, otherwise, we’re lagging behind.” WHAT IF BUSINESSES AREN’T ON BOARD? Victoria’s checkout bag regulation bylaw outlines a series of fees that can be charged to businesses if they do not comply with the checkout bag regulation bylaw. Corporations can face fines between $100 to $10,000 and individuals can face fines between $50 and $500. However, Helps said warnings would be given prior to fines, noting the emphasis is on education over enforcement.

No (farmers’) market for plastic bags As Kamloops council prepares to meet next week and debate whether to ban single-use plastic bags, cutlery and straws, directors of the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market Society are reminding residents of a plastics ban coming to the downtown markets this year. Last year, the farmers’ market society board made the decision to ban single-use plastic shopping bags from the downtown markets beginning with the 2019 season. This change will commence with our first Saturday market, on April 20, in the 200-block of St. Paul Street and the first Wednesday market, on May 1, in the 400-block of Victoria Street.

“We felt that the market could set an example in reducing the use of plastic in our city,” said board member Anne Grube. “We have therefore asked all our vendors to refrain from handing out plastic shopping bags. Smaller bags containing loose vegetables and berries, etc., will still be allowed, although a volunteer group will be attending the market with homemade mesh bags that could be used for these items. “For years, many of our regular customers have been bringing reusable shopping bags with them each week. We also sell heavy cotton bags at our information table.”

Four Directions gets three-year funding KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A Brocklehurst secondary school of choice for Aboriginal students has received nearly a quarter-million dollars from the Vancouver Foundation to fund a new program in September. The $246,000 grant will enable Four Directions secondary to run the program — Community Led Learning: Trans-Systemic Spaces in Indigenous Education — for the next three school years. The program provides opportunities and resources for cultural activities both in and outside the school

schedule. Activities, delivered by lead facilitator Justin Young, will involve students giving back to the community through volunteering as well as participating in recreational activities and experiential learning. They will also attend cultural workshops as a group and with their families, building relationships with community members and elders. The program is designed to to integrate Indigenous knowledge alongside the school curriculum by involving family, elders and knowledge keepers. “This grant will positively affect

Winding down the campaign My tireless dedication to mediocrity prevents me from being too active. However, in the spirit of the Y Strong Kids Campaign, I relinquished my sofa isometrics (and my PlayStation) and started walking. I began with evening walks around TRU and, when the exercise didn’t kill me, I tackled downtown, doing several blocks at a time over a series of weeks I broke it down into small areas and, no matter how busy my day, I could cover good ground in about 20 minutes. One warm evening, I found a group of people at Riverside Park, larping, which is a form of exercise I can get into. A few weeks ago, I stopped by the downtown Y and tried out the pool. It was quiet and awesome, as was the whirlpool. As the Y Strong Kids Campaign comes to an end, I know I will retreat back to my video games (I am currently playing Skyrim), but I think the habit of those evening walks will remain. If you see me in Riverside Park doing a little live action role-playing, don’t be embarrassed to say hi. — Liz Spivey penned this seventh and final instalment for the KTW Press Time team.

A special prosecutor has approved a charge of sexual assault against Port Moody Mayor Rob Vagramov after an investigation that began on Dec. 17, 2018. According to a press release from the BC Prosecution Service (BCPS), the alleged assault occurred in Coquitlam in 2015. Criminally charged councillors can’t be forced from office Michael Klein was appointed special prosecutor late last year under section 7 of the Crown Counsel Act because of the nature of the complaint and the identity of the accused as an elected municipal official. Klein is a senior Vancouver lawyer in private practice who had been given a mandate to provide legal advice to the RCMP investigators, conduct any related charge assessment and assume conduct of the prosecution if charges are approved. Vagramov, 26, who faces the charge under section 271 of the Criminal Code, is scheduled to make his first appearance in Port Coquitlam provincial court on April 25. According to a BCPS statement, the announcement of a

special prosecutor was postponed while the investigation took place, but has been revealed now that charges have been approved. Vagramov is serving the first term as mayor of Port Moody, having won a hotly contested election in October 2018. As mayor, he is chair of the Port Moody Police Board. During the October civic election, Vagramov promised to slow development in the city, a theme that captivated many voters in the contest that pitted Vagramov against then-incumbent mayor Mike Clay. But Vagramov was dogged by controversy when a video of him

Freshen Up for Spring

with a homeless person surfaced, raising concerns about his character and candidacy. In the profanity-laden clip recorded in 2014 — the year he was elected as a city councillor — Vagramov filmed himself as he offered a homeless person outside the Granville Street SkyTrain station in downtown Vancouver a sandwich in exchange for shotgunning a beer with him. He said to the camera that he was making the video after being nominated by another person on social media to conduct a “random act of kindness.” “I was pretty excited to get f---ed up, to be honest with you, until I realized it was a random act of kindness nomination,” Vagramov said into the camera. “So let’s see if we can’t do both and make somebody’s day.” The then-mayoralty candidate said the video was posted when he was “fresh out of college” and didn’t reflect his current views. He also posted his own 13-minute video on Facebook of himself speaking with a homeless advocate. — Tri-City News

SNC warned of U.S. move, slashing workforce CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — SNC-Lavalin warned federal prosecutors last fall about a possible plan to split the company in two, move its offices to the United States and eliminate its Canadian workforce if it didn’t get a deal to avoid criminal prosecution, newly obtained documents show. The documents, part of a PowerPoint presentation obtained by the Canadian Press, describe something called “Plan B’’— what Montreal-based SNC might have to do if it can’t convince the government to grant a so-called remediation agreement to avoid criminal proceedings in a fraud and corruption case related to projects in Libya. Under that plan, SNC would move its Montreal headquarters and corporate offices in Ontario and Quebec to the U.S. within a year, cutting its workforce to just 3,500 from 8,717, before eventually winding up its Canadian operations. “The government of Canada needs to weigh the public interest impact of the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin,’’ the presentation reads. “We must humbly ask whether

the public interest is served to prosecute SNC-Lavalin and to try to achieve a guilty verdict. Such a decision would effectively lead to the end of SNC-Lavalin as we know it today and has been for more than 100 years.’’ Of all the options for the future of the company, the plan in the presentation was the “most obvious’’ to follow and “well advanced’’ in terms of planning, say the documents, which the Privy Council Office confirmed receiving late last year. The company’s board and senior management were prepared to quickly bundle parts of the business that had no role in the Libya case into a new entity, putting the “trio of possibly convicted entities’’ into another organization that would operate “on a reduced business level in Canada or heading into eventual wind-up,’’ they read. The details appear to contradict public statements by chief executive officer Neil Bruce, who has denied both that the company threatened to move its headquarters, and that the company cited its some 9,000 Canadian jobs as a reason the construction giant should be granted a remediation agreement.

The company walked back the comments days later in a statement, saying a remediation deal was the best path to protect its Canadian workforce. SNC-Lavalin spokesman Nicolas Ryan confirmed the authenticity of what he called a “confidential document’’ that was submitted to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada to allow the director of public prosecutions to consider the company’s request for an agreement. “We have always been transparent with our various stakeholders about the importance of the public interest argument/ case for Canada in having a globally competitive SNC-Lavalin as part of Canada, headquartered in Montreal,’’ Ryan said in a statement. A remediation agreement remains “the best way to protect and grow the almost 9,000 direct Canadian SNC-Lavalin jobs, as well as thousands of indirect jobs,’’ the statement continues. “We have also said that we have a fiduciary duty to our shareholders and employees, and as such is our responsibility to look at all our options available.... this does not mean that we have chosen one option or that a deci-

sion has been taken on which option we will pursue, simply that there are various possibilities we must consider.’’ The presentation also suggests the end of seven-figure donations and sponsorships for various community causes, hundreds of millions more in lost tax revenues, and the loss of spending on research positions at universities. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has held up the threat of job losses as the main reason he and others pressed former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to look into the prosecutor’s decision. Wilson-Raybould told the Commons justice committee last month she came under “consistent and sustained’’ pressure — including veiled threats — from Trudeau, his office, the Privy Council Office and Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s office to halt the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin. The ensuing political fallout has cost Trudeau two cabinet ministers — Wilson-Raybould and former Treasury Board president Jane Philpott, who said she had lost confidence in the government’s handling of the affair — as well as one of his top

aides, Gerald Butts, and Michael Wernick, clerk of the Privy Council, who will leave his post as the top federal civil servant before the fall election. Bruce and Wernick met on Sept. 18, 2018 to talk about the company’s legal troubles. Notes taken at the meeting, tabled as evidence with the House of Commons justice committee, show Wernick told Bruce to take the public interest argument to the director of public prosecutions, adding the company “will want to get it right.’’ Wernick testified earlier this month that he spoke with Wilson-Raybould the next day where the former attorney general appeared “very firm in her mind’’ that the prosecutor’s decision to not negotiate a deal with SNC-Lavalin was final. Wernick said Wilson-Raybould told him the only option for the company was to make public interest arguments through its lawyers. The Privy Council Office did not respond to media queries on Thursday. A spokeswoman for the prosecution service said any discussions or documents in the case are confidential.

NATIONAL NEWS

Jail should be ‘the exception’ for accused awaiting trial So says the Supreme Court of Canada in a decision this week JIM BRONSKILL

CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Making an accused person wait in jail before trial should be the exception, not the rule, the Supreme Court of Canada said in a decision that affirms a key legal safeguard intended to ensure speedy justice. In a 9-0 ruling handed down on Thursday, the high court said people accused of crimes are automatically entitled to periodic reviews of their detention under provisions set out in the Criminal Code. In clarifying how the provisions should work, the court said Parliament wanted to make certain people awaiting trial have their cases reviewed by a judge at set points in time to consider whether keeping them in jail is justified. The decision means jailers must apply to a judge for a hearing on behalf of the accused at the 30-day mark in cases involving lesser offences and at the 90-day mark in cases involving indictable offences. The ruling comes three years after the Supreme Court set out a groundbreaking new framework for determining whether a criminal trial has been unreasonably delayed in the drug case of Barrett Richard Jordan. “Delays in routine bail and detention matters are a manifestation of the culture of complacency denounced by this Court in Jordan and must be addressed,’’ Chief Justice Richard Wagner wrote on behalf of the court in Thursday’s decision. The case landed at the high court as a result of an appeal

by Corey Lee James Myers, who was arrested on several firearms charges in British Columbia three years ago. Though Myers eventually pleaded guilty to reduced charges, he also challenged a decision to keep him in custody pending trial. At issue was section 525 of the Criminal Code, which outlines procedures for detention review hearings aimed at preventing accused people from languishing in jail before trial. Although Myers’ appeal is now moot, the Supreme Court exercised its discretion to examine the case because practices concerning detention review hearings vary widely across the country with regard to when they happen, whether they are mandatory and factors to be considered. In the decision, Wagner wrote that the right to liberty and the presumption of innocence are

fundamental tenets of the criminal justice system. “In the pre-trial context, release — at the earliest opportunity and in the least onerous manner — is the default presumption in Canadian criminal law. Pre-trial detention is the exception, not the rule.’’ Being detained prior to trial can have “serious detrimental impacts’’ on the accused person’s ability to mount a defence and comes at a significant cost to liberty, mental and physical well-being, family life and employment, Wagner wrote. However, a significant number of people await trial behind bars at any given time in Canada, he noted. In some cases, accused people are held in provincial jails — often in dire, overcrowded conditions — for the entire length of the pre-trial process, which can amount to hundreds of days in custody, he added.

fter U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order this week, affirming Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, there was an outcry that went far beyond the Arab world. His action went against the international rule on the “inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force,” we were told — conquest, in less lawyerly language. Alas, that is just an ideal, not a hard-and-fast international law. The Golan Heights, which belonged to Syria, were part of Israel’s conquests in the 1967 war. Israel returned most of Egypt’s lost territory (except the Gaza Strip) in the 1979 peace agreement, but continues to occupy the lands it conquered from Jordan and Syria 52 years ago. The only part it has annexed according to Israeli law, however, is the Golan Heights. As far as Israel is concerned, the issue was closed in 1981, although nobody else in the world accepted the annexation, not even its greatest ally, the United States. They all went on referring to the “occupied territories,” including the Golan Heights, as defined in UN Security Council Resolution 242. But Israel didn’t care and the legal issue was sidelined for another 38 years. The only reason Trump has now recognized the Golan Heights as Israeli territory is to give a little electoral boost to his good buddy, Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who is facing corruption charges that might lose him the April 9 election. It doesn’t change the legal situation as far as everybody else is concerned, nor does it make Israel’s hold on the territory more secure. What guarantees Israel’s position in the Golan Heights is a

GWYNNE DYER World

WATCH crushing superiority in military force — and the same is true of most other occupied territories around the world. There is text in Article 2 of the United Nations Charter requiring all members to refrain “from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state.” But it’s a pious hope, not a universally enforced law. When there is a conquest, the victim is expected to take action itself if possible, as Britain did in 1982 when Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands. The victim will probably get some legal cover from international law, but it is unlikely to get military aid unless it is in other countries’ interests to give it. Such interests were engaged in the 19901991 Gulf War, when Iraq conquered Kuwait. For strategic reasons (i.e. oil), many Arab and Western countries volunteered military forces to reverse that conquest, and they got legal cover from the UN, too, for what it was worth. But when it’s a great power doing the invading, such as China in Tibet (1950), the Soviet Union in Afghanistan (1979) or the United States in Grenada (1983), Panama (1989) and Iraq (2003), the UN is paralyzed by Security Council vetoes and most other countries lie low. The invaders have no legal cover, but that doesn’t stop them. When non-great

powers invade, like the Indonesian seizure of Timor or the Moroccan annexation of Western Sahara, both in 1975, there will be no outside help for the victim unless some great power cares about it. There has been a major effort to shrink the role of force and expand the rule of law in international affairs since the Second World War. That war frightened the people in charge enough that they were willing to consider fundamental changes to their old way of doing business. To some extent, they succeeded. This is the most peaceful era in human history. But it is not actually peaceful and the project everybody signed up for in 1945 is still very much a work in progress. Trump would quite like to wreck it entirely, as in his view it’s just another part of “globalization,” but there is little chance he will succeed. He just doesn’t have the leverage. Trump’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights makes the simultaneous American campaign to reverse the Russian annexation of Crimea look hypocritical, but that campaign wasn’t getting any traction anyway. Similarly, it hasn’t sabotaged the muchtrumpeted Trump peace plan for the IsraeliPalestinian conflict, because that wasn’t going anywhere, either. Everybody in the Arab world already knows Trump is completely loyal to Israel, if only because that is the best way to get the votes of U.S. evangelical Christians. Nobody expects anything to come from his Middle East “peace plan” if it ever sees the light of day. On the shock-horror scale, this whole episode rates about 2 out of 10.

Latest instalment of Mom’s The Word comes to Kamloops Play for mothered and mothers alike features local talent SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

n the mid-1990s, six actor friends working with the Arts Club Theatre Company all had children around the same time and encountered the surprises many first-time mothers do. “So we got together to moan and bitch about it and we eventually wrote a show,” Robin Nichol said. That show was Mom’s the Word and Nichol is one of its six original creators and actors. It hit the stage in 1995 at the Arts Club Theatre in Vancouver and ran for nine months before taking off across the country. It even went international and was translated into other languages. “We expected it would just be of interest to other mothers of babies, but in fact it had a wider audience and it went crazy,” Nichol said. In 2005, the group returned to

do it all again. Mom’s the Word 2: Unhinged was the follow-up and a “remixed” version that combined the first two plays also ran for a time. And then in 2017, Mom’s the Word: Nest 1/2 Empty became the third and latest instalment of the play. “It’s about the kids leaving home — or not leaving home, or they should leave home — one of those things,” Nichol said. Nichol and her fellow castmates all wrote their own parts for each of the plays, though Nichol didn’t always play herself

— she had a day job to keep up with as a professor and theatre co-ordinator at Thompson Rivers University. Throughout all of its iterations, the show has held true one theme in particular: you never stop being a mother. Whether that means being awake at all hours to see to a crying infant or being there during tough times for adult children, Nichol said the play draws on a lot of things that are universal and a lot of things that are very specific. “We’re all writing in the first person about our own lives and just telling the truth,” she said.

“Obviously on the one hand, I’d say, ‘That’s exactly me up there.’ On the other hand, I do choose how I present myself — and I’m not even entirely conscious of what those choices are.” Nichol said her real-life children are sometimes the butt of the joke on stage, but the play is about a lot more than familial teasing, and it ventures into the mistakes they have made as mothers and the things they do that simply aren’t helping. “It’s about realizing how we [the cast] have reacted to this phenomenon and looking at it

anadian rap artist Duane D.O. Gibson is taking the opportunity to tell kids how he defied the odds to follow his dreams. Known in the Guinness Book of World Records for first setting the record for longest freestyle rap — eight hours and 45 minutes — the 40-year-old Toronto resident fell in love with hip hop music during his youth, having been inspired by the music of Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The Fresh Prince became his role model — an important figure to have in a child’s life, as he explains in his one-hour school assembly shows. Stay Driven, Gibson’s motivational rapping school tour program, is based on his own life experiences, addressing topics such as bullying, peer pressure and literacy with school children. “I talk about the importance of friendships and how you have to defy the odds — because that’s what D.O. stands for,” Gibson said. His message to children is to show them they can follow their dreams through perseverance, taking action and surrounding themselves with the right peer group. “I know what it’s like to come from a smaller town and have a dream and have people say ’no,

forget about your dream,’” Gibson said. “I remember what it was like when I hung out with friends that did encourage me … it just made me want my goals more,” he said. At the start of his career, people told Gibson he couldn’t be a rap artist because he was from Canada, and there weren’t many mainstream artists from the Great White North. “When I tell kids that people said I couldn’t be a rapper from Canada, they don’t understand it because they immediately talk about Drake — but there was no Drake when I was growing up,” Gibson said. His fellow Toronto rap artist, who has become one of the most recognizable names in the industry, used to record at Gibson’s recording studio and even made a cameo in the 2007 music video for Get Free by Art of Fresh, of which Gibson is a member. “I’ve been able to see the rise of rappers like Drake, but at the same time, I know what it was like when being a rapper from Canada was seen as a disadvantage,” Gibson said. Gibson launched a career as a rap artist in 2001 right after graduating from York University with a degree in English. He wrote a thesis on hip hop as an evolution of African American linguistic practises.

The idea to incorporate motivational speaking at schools into his repertoire came at the same time when a friend asked him to come speak at a school to talk about how he was able to obtain a university education and still pursue a rap career. “I just thought it was fun, but then I realized it could be a great way to connect with fans, a great way to give back to the community and it became a core part of my business as well,” Gibson said. He said the school shows keep him grounded and connect with his young fan base. “I also learn from kids. Kids will tell me what they’re listening to, kids will tell me how bullying is affecting them, how social media is affecting them, so it gives me a chance to know the issues kids are facing nowadays,” Gibson said. Gibson likes to start off with an a cappella rap before relating his life experiences to the challenges students face in their everyday lives. He also likes to engage the crowd with some freestyle, incorporating suggestions into a rap, which always keeps him on his toes. Gibson will be in the Kamloops area next week with presentations at Pacific Way elementary and Robert L. Clemitson elementary on April 3 and Barriere elementary on April 4.

t started with hats. BKco founder Stephanie Stumph was creating and selling slouchy beanies made from bamboo fabric. She offered two models — a lightweight one that was great for infants and one made from bamboo fleece that was more appropriate for adults. But it wasn’t long before she discovered a new demographic was buying her lightweight beanies. “I was just making hats and started accumulating a large number of chemo patient customers,” she said. “They really loved the lighter weight. It’s breathable, it fits their head better and they wear it 24-7.” But while it was great to have found a new market, Stumph eventually began to feel guilty that she was profiting from the suffering of others. It was from those feelings of guilt the Wrap Them in Bamboo campaign was born last July. Here’s how it works: with every bamboo beanie sold at BKco (bkco.ca) another beanie will be donated to a child going through chemotherapy. “Currently I’m donating to children fighting cancer across Canada,” Stumph said. Though some donations currently go to breast cancer patients, she has plans to expand on them. “Soon, every hat sold on the first of the month will be for breast cancer,” she said. To date, BKco has sold and matched 1,300 hats, with donations to BC Children’s Hospital, the Children’s Hospital of Winnipeg, Sick Kids Toronto, Camp Ooch, Camp Goodtimes and the West Coast Kids Foundation. But Stumph wants to do more. And that’s what brought her to audition for Dragons’ Den last week in Kelowna. “I talked about the numbers, what I wanted to do if I were to

get an investment,” she said. “My goal is to have a hat on every single cancer patient. But I don’t want them to pay for it. “And with a Dragon, I could get there.” This actually wasn’t Stumph’s first time auditioning for the Dragons’ Den. She applied two years earlier, before her oneto-one donation campaign was established. So when she returned to audition this year, she was better prepared to answer one of the pressing questions from her first try: “What makes you different from every hat company out there?” Stumph doesn’t know yet whether she will be heading to Toronto to film a segment on the show, but she should be hearing within the next week-and-a-half. If she and BKco get selected to present, that will happen in May. And while she’s trying not to get too excited about her chances, she admitted she feels “very, very hopeful.”

went and sat in the corner of my living room by the window this week, surrounded by plants, pulling out skein after skein of yarn, and began to learn something new. In this case, it was punchneedle embroidery. The familiar hand movements soon had me settled into a nice routine. Up, down, up, down, check loops, adjust tension, clip the end of the yarn to start a new colour and repeat. It was after my hands had started to work on their own that my mind started to wander. There is always a shift this time of year, as the weather warms to bearable temperatures and the first signs of spring come forth. It makes me feel unsettled. It’s a time to begin anew, start fresh and make changes to the ways things have been done. Creating something has always been, to me, a form of therapy and a way to deal with stress and anxiety. I recently attended the Canada Reads event hosted by Kamloops Society for the

Written Arts and CBC regarding Lindsay Wong’s book The Woo Woo: How I Survived Ice Hockey, Drug Raids, Demons and My Crazy Chinese Family, which depicts her life growing up in a superstitious Chinese immigrant family where mental health was addressed by blaming the “woo woos” — or ghosts that lived inside of people. I address some of my “woo woos” through art and fully support the use of art therapy as a tool for mental health. The Canadian Art Therapy Association says on their website that, “art therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, colour and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate.” There are many qualified art therapy practitioners in Kamloops for anyone who is interested in exploring that method as a tool for their own struggles.

that listeners are gaming the system in favour of different songs. Since Ariana Grande’s album debuted, there has been a movement from her listeners to get her current single, 7 Rings out of the top singles spot in favour of her newest single by deliberately playing it instead of 7 Rings. And artists are now making deliberate choices when they write songs, so that the song will fit into a playlist algorithm. Rather than making artistic choices to include material in an album, they choose to make

Blues-rock artist heads up final show of Home Routes season The dirty guitar tones of Chris Carmichael will soon be heard in Kamloops. The Winnipeg-based rock ’n’ roll and blues artist is currently touring the southern part of the province and will stop by Kamloops for a house concert on April 4. Carmichael’s music has been described as “meaty, rocking alt-country with a hint of blues.”

The artist’s self-titled album was released in 2009. He has also worked with a number of Winnipeg-based acts like Big Dave McLean, Romi Mayes, The Perpetrators, the Scott Nolan Band, Righteous Ike and the Doug and Jess Band. The show is the final Home Routes concert of the season. Home Routes is a not-for-profit arts organization that creates show opportunities for travel-

ling artists in communities across Canada by working with volunteers who host shows in their own homes. Carmichael’s tour continues with shows each day. After Kamloops he’s in Merritt, Anmore and Metchosin before traversing Vancouver Island south to Victoria. To attend a show, contact Home Routes at attend@homeroutes.ca or call 1-866-925-6889.

something palatable to a computer program choosing their songs. Odd things happen when computers are factored in to charting songs. Lately, Baby Shark by Korean children’s musician Pinkfong has been showing up in the lower end of the Billboard Top 40. Anyone with a kid knows this song and they also know it would never be heard on a pop playlist. Yet, there it is, charting on the pop radio Top 40. Anything that gives power back to the listener is a good thing. Though, there are still problems with computer algorithms choosing what we hear and what we don’t hear. With playlists weighted to a certain kind of song, a certain style of music or other choices, say, like who pays the most marketing money for a song to be heard, there’s a danger of taking the power back out of a listener’s hands.

Rob has been in the auto industry for over 40 years. Rob is excited to show his previous and new clients the huge selection of vehicles & RVs he has to offer.

Ariana Grande fans are moving her songs around n February, Ariana Grande released her latest album, Thank U, Next. The week it debuted, 11 of her songs appeared on the American Billboard Top 40 singles charts. This isn’t the first time this has happened. The same scenario played out with the latest albums from Drake and Travis Scott. It’s not so uncommon to see non-singles on the Billboard Singles Charts, especially after a new album from a big name artist comes out. Since Billboard changed its charting criteria, streaming now counts toward singles play, so multiple plays of a non-single release, if played enough, can turn up on the singles charts. Huge amounts of people were playing Grande’s full album, so a lot of her songs ended up on the charts. The algorithm used weighs on-demand play more than playlist-style plays. That is, the songs a listener chooses count more than songs chosen for the listener. Streaming services are affecting singles play so much

Kamloops Arts Council seeks Indigenous input as strategic plan comes together The Kamloops Arts Council is inviting Indigenous artists to share their thoughts on how the organization should move forward as it puts together its five-year strategic plan. Two sessions will be held on Monday at Lii Michif Opitemisiwak at 707 Tranquille Rd. The first is from noon to 1:30 p.m. and the second from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The organization’s five-year strategic planning is under-

way with the organization’s new executive director, Terri Hadwin, at the helm. Hadwin took the helm on March 1. “It’s imperative that we create time and space to hear specifically from our community’s Indigenous artists and cultural producers,” Hadwin said. Indigenous artists can share their thoughts at the meeting and information collected will be added to what the council

already gathered in the fall through online surveys and focus groups. “All of the ideas we’ve heard in consultation will help us as we sit down to figure out our specific goals and strategies for the next five years,” Hadwin said. The meetings will be facilitated by Chris Rose and JP Baker. Those interested can RSVP to info@kamloopsarts.ca.

ohannesburg stirs strong emotions. It is one of South Africa’s wealthiest cities, yet it is also a city where poverty and crime stalks its citizens. It has seen violence and heroism; cruelty and courage. My first reaction to the city’s personality is one of apprehension –— a sense of unease. Not that I am under threat. Far from it. I am sitting in a comfortable, air-conditioned tourist bus, surrounded by fellow travellers who are familiar, friendly companions. Yet beyond my window are crowds of people milling about a busy sidewalk –— none of them chatting with friends or smiling, but instead sullen, almost belligerent, as they shoulder past each other. Burly African men stand, backs resting against walls, smoking, knocking back cans of beer, their expressions are insolent and cocky. Others merely lounge with hands in pockets, silent, empty-eyed. Poverty stalks, resentment simmers. The scars of apartheid are scabbed over, but only superficially. The city’s conflicted past is embodied at the Hector Peterson memorial in Soweto. The stone tablet says, “The symbol for the courage, anguish and courage of the school children is epitomized in Mbuyisa Makhubu who on this site on 16th June 1976 carried to safety the wounded Hector Peterson...” At least 600 students were killed in the wave of resistance that swept South Africa and thousands more were detained, imprisoned and tortured. The 12-year-old Peterson,

killed by the bullet of apartheid — in both the literal and metaphorical sense — remains a powerful symbol of resistance to the suppression of freedom and liberty by South Africa’s colonial rulers. Nowhere is man’s inhumanity more evident than in Johannesburg’s prison on Constitution Hill. My group is escorted on a tour through No. 4 prison, and we stand appalled at the room where inmates were crammed, one against the other, laying on thin pallets on the floor. The dining area would undoubtedly have carried the

stench of overflowing latrines nearby, displays the comments by black inmates, whose meals were very different from those of white prisoners. An example: “The tin plates were unwashed and encrusted with layers of dried food accumulated over months mixed with rust” and “supper was a mixture of old rotten boiled fish whose stink would reach us from the prison kitchen ... on the day it was pig skins, the fat had long curdled with pieces of skin sticking out of the mess like shark fins...” Better food could be bargained for by indulging sexual

demands from jailers. Photographs depict white guards commanding naked prisoners to jump so they could examine their anuses for possible hidden items. One of the most notable prisoners held here was Mahatma Gandhi, but as a lawyer and a political entity, his incarceration was relatively brief. A room displays numerous photographs, letters and belongings of Gandhi, including a pair of slippers which he made in prison for General Smuts, whose response was: “I have worn these sandals for many a summer even though I may feel that I am not

worthy to stand in the shoes of so great a man.” It seems that there is something ironic, yet hopeful and reassuring, in the juxtaposition of No. 4 prison with Constitution Hall — the former, a symbol of denial of civil and political rights to black South Africans, the latter, a building dedicated to honouring democratic freedom and justice for all citizens. I’d heard so much about Soweto and had imagined it to be a slum, crowded with tin shacks and destitute families. The reality comes as a surprise. On a Friday evening, as the sun casts long shadows across the road, the township is alive with folks strolling along the sidewalks. Strains of music wafting from open-air restaurants and the hum and bustle of street activity is apparent. Perhaps this impression is deceptive and Soweto has a darker side, but on this day, in my mind, I could be in any middle-class suburban town in the country. If only, for two buildings, which set it apart. Our group lingers at the gate leading to Reverend Desmond Tutu’s home. A five-minute walk around the corner, we pause at the home of South Africa’s most beloved leader, the late Nelson Mandela, where his family continues to live. The house is shielded from view by a tall hedge, but memorial stones are displayed on the sidewalk with messages from around the globe. It’s a testament to the respect accorded to one of South Africa’s greatest leaders, whose legacy to his country was hope for the future. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper syndicate.

BLAZERS BREAK ROYALS IN PLAYOFF CLASSIC MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Vancouver Island is under perpetual earthquake watch, with tectonic plates grinding and fixing to snap under stress that could trigger a devastating tsunami. Nobody was expecting the big one to occur in B.C.’s Interior, but a fever-pitch atmosphere inside Sandman Centre and waves of Blazers’ physicality during a WHL playoff barnburner helped lead to a seismic event — and Kody McDonald was at fault. The Victoria Royals’ standout 20-year-old forward from Lethbridge, seemingly still fuming from incurring an embellishment penalty at 5:34 of the third period, turned his stick into a weapon two minutes later in Game 4 of the first-round post-season series, pushed over the edge by verbal taunting from Kamloops forward Zane Franklin. McDonald was on the bench, on the other side of dividing glass from Franklin, and swung his stick several times at the Blazers’ forward’s head, connecting once and following through to whack Kamloops trainer Colin (Toledo) Robinson, whose glasses were damaged on contact. An incensed McDonald was escorted off the ice by officials while the arena whipped into a frenzy as fans, players, coaches, referees and media alike processed what was happening. McDonald was issued a match penalty for intent to injure, which was accompanied by an automatic one-game suspension and five minutes in the sin bin that were served by Ty Yoder. The loss of composure proved costly. Connor Zary scored the gamewinning goal during 4-on-4 action that followed, while Franklin was serving an unsportsmanlike-conduct minor for his lip service. Luke Zazula tallied on the power play after Franklin’s penalty expired.

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Victoria Royals’ goaltender Griffen Outhouse has been badgered by Kamloops Blazers’ forward Jermaine Loewen throughout the teams’ Round 1 WHL playoff series.

Martin Lang iced the game with a power-play goal at 15:11 to give the Blazers a 6-3 victory that leaves the series tied at 2-2 heading into Game 5 in Victoria on Saturday. “It was pretty pivotal,” Royals’ head coach Dan Price said of McDonald’s penalty. “There was definitely some things said from their bench which I can’t repeat, very personal things. Disappointing to hear that from players in our league, but that’s why it escalated.” Franklin has a different take on his jibing. “Just friendly hockey chatter,” said the 20-year-old forward from Marwayne, Alta, noting the only time he’s seen an incident like that is in movies. “It was a little run-of-the-mill. I don’t know what really started it, but I kind of put my two cents in there and I pinched a nerve I guess. It works

out good, I guess, for us. “He did most of his talking with his stick. He didn’t like it, whatever I said. We’ll keep [what I said] between the two benches. Maybe I’ll use it again, so I don’t want you guys to know.” Match penalties are automatically reviewed by the league, which on Thursday suspended McDonald indefinitely. He is done for the series. Kamloops brass is looking into an alleged fracas that took place while the Victoria forward was making his way to the dressing room, with security guards allegedly involved. Security would have to report the incident to the WHL to spark a league investigation, according to a Blazers’ source. The 5,193 in attendance were treated to one of the more memorable contests in recent Blazers’ history, a game that featured goalie

gaffes, violent bodychecks, lead changes and, perhaps most notably (outside of the McDonald incident), a disdain for officiating that felt riotous. That crew might have needed an armoured car to escape Mark Recchi Way had the home team not prevailed. “It was pretty emotional,” Price said. “There was a lot of talking, a lot of physicality, a lot of stuff after the play and a lot of stuff after the whistle. That’s kind of what it’s like in the playoffs.” Kyrell Sopotyk put Kamloops ahead 1-0 at 6:52 of the first period, the 17-year-old forward’s third goal of the post-season. Kamloops was on the power play a few minutes later when a failed zone exit left the puck about 15 feet in front of netminder Dylan Ferguson, who opted to bolt for it to clear danger.

The 20-year-old backstop from Lantzville tripped, leaving Royals’ forward Dino Kambeitz with a shorthanded tap-in to tie the game at 1-1. Kambeitz notched his second goal of the game and fourth of the post-season on the power play at 13:48 to put his club ahead 2-1. “We had momentum going, but we fell into that trap,” Price said. “We started reacting to what Kamloops was doing and we let our emotions get the best of us. That really turned it.” Zary’s first goal of the game came on the power-play at 19:39, a marker that resulted from Blazers’ captain Jermaine Loewen doing what he did all night — making a nuisance of himself in front of Victoria netminder Griffen Outhouse.

Connor Zary scored twice for the Kamloops Blazers in a 6-3 win over the Victoria Royals on Wednesday at Sandman Centre and has nine goals in his last seven games.

Zary: ‘It’s honestly just one word — fun’ From A29

“That’s one thing we wanted to establish in this series, was to be hard on them and get in front of Outhouse and get in his kitchen,” Loewen said. “He’s a good goalie. I didn’t take a penalty tonight. I Just battled, took shit. Guys jumped on me. “ “From that, they got the retaliation from one of their better players and it just kind of turned the tide for us and we just poured it on.” The Blazers outshot the Royals 47-18 in the game and 20-2 in the third period. Loewen said Victoria broke, the pivotal moment McDonald’s explosion, an outburst caused by four games’ worth of bruising physical play and one dose of pointed chirping. Kamloops head coach Serge Lajoie echoed his sentiments. “We were maybe able to get them to break,” Lajoie said. “We did that through sticking to the game plan. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a reaction like that, from either my player or an opposing player. It was dangerous, the stick basically coming onto our bench. What’s going to happen [with supplemental discipline] is way above my pay grade. We’ll wait and see.” Note Lajoie’s phrasing and perhaps file it under gamesmanship. KTW asked Price if his club would be filing for discipline after Kamloops forward Brodi Stuart levelled Victoria defenceman Matthew Smith in Game 3 at Sandman Centre on Tuesday. “That’s above my pay grade,” Price said. The Royals filed for discipline and Stuart was slapped with a one-game suspension, served on Wednesday. Smith was injured by the hit

and also missed Game 4. Franklin’s first goal of the postseason arrived at 8:11 of the second period. He banged in a rebound that resulted from a Luke Zazula shot, which would not have materialized without 15-year-old Logan Stankoven barging up ice and maintaining possession in the offensive zone under harassment from Royals’ defenders. Igor Martynov tied the game at 2-2 at 15:09, streaking down the left wing to put himself at what looked like an impossible shooting angle. He found the tiniest of holes above Ferguson’s shoulder with a sniper’s aim. Ferguson stopped 15 saves in victory. Outhouse made 41 saves in a losing effort. Kamloops was 3-for-6 on the power play. Victoria was 1-for-6. Game 5 — call it the aftershock — promises to feature a Royals’ team dead set on remaining poised and a Blazers’ squad itching to fissure their opponent’s resolve. “If we let our opponent, Kamloops or whoever, get under our skin and try to distract us from playoff hockey, we’re at risk of things not going that well,” Price said. “I think we just ignore all that, ignore the gamesmanship on the ice and just try to play hockey, then, hopefully, we can have a good Game 5.” Zary, the 17-year-old forward from Saskatoon, has nine goals in his last seven games and is making a habit out of showing up in the clutch, providing markers of magnitude. “It’s honestly just one word — fun,” Zary said. The series epicentre will shift back to Kamloops for Game 6 on Monday. “It’s amazing coming to the rink every day,” Zary said. “You saw it out there, the atmosphere. We’re coming together and it’s so much fun.”

Royals draw strength from boy’s courage Jameson Murray (right) of the Victoria Royals signs Evan Samoyloff’s jersey last Friday at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on Vancouver Island.

MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Dan Price wasn’t totally focused on hockey after his Victoria Royals took a 2-1 playoff series lead over the hometown Kamloops Blazers on Tuesday at Sandman Centre. The Western Hockey League club’s head coach turned conversation during a post-game interview to a nine-year-old boy, Evan Samoyloff, whose fight against an inoperable brain tumour is inspiring the Royals. “We’re kind of playing for something bigger than ourselves,” Price said. Evan was diagnosed with the tumour before he turned three. He is on his third trial of medicines, this round designed to preserve his vision, which has deteriorated since the slow-growing tumour has recurred. “It was devastating,” said Evan’s father, Stephan Samoyloff, recalling the initial diagnosis. “It affects his growth hormones, affect his vision. It’s serious stuff.” The positive side, which should be focused on given Evan’s attitude, is the prognosis isn’t exactly life-threatening, in that chemotherapy and treatment can preserve his vision and growth, according to Stephan, a Penticton-based doctor. Evan loves junior hockey, a fact known to Samoyloff friends who live in Victoria, where the family happened to be last weekend.

close to home for the Royals’ team doctor. “Compared to other nine-yearolds, he’s of very small stature and yet he’s a remarkable little young man who is able to carry on a conversation much, much better than most nine-year-olds could and is enthusiastic and positive about things,” Conrad said. “He’s been remarkably challenged. He’s lost most of his vision to the point now that he’s learning braille. If you talked to him, you’d be quite impressed and would think he isn’t facing the challenges he is.” Evan isn’t expecting to be able to play hockey and knows playby-play commentary likely isn’t in his future, but he told dad of an interest in providing colour analysis. KTW asked for his take on the Victoria-Kamloops series. Royals in six, he said, “but best of luck to the Blazers.” If there is no room on the Royals’ broadcast team, Price may start fearing for his job. “I feel great,” Evan said. “If the coach needs advice, I can always give it to him.”

“They surprised us after the game,” said Evan, speaking to KTW on Wednesday from Vancouver, where he is for the latest round of appointments. “It feels really good and I feel like I’m kind of famous.” Stephan was moved by the Royals’ hospitality: “It spiralled into the team adopting him and responding amazingly, bringing him into the dressing room, gifting him a sweater, signing it and the whole high-five business.” Scott Walford, a Montreal Canadiens’ draft pick and standout Royals’ defenceman, was impacted by the visit. “He’s a nine-year-old kid who’s going through something a lot bigger than hockey,” Walford said. “He’s just so resilient and means so much to this team and has given us so much inspiration. The hand of cards he was dealt obviously isn’t ideal for him, but it’s just so amazing, the perseverance and how he deals with it every day.” So, how does Evan feel about his situation? “It’s hard, but I take lots of breaks every day and I battle through it,” he said.

Doug Bodger’s memories of Kamloops have faded, but he has no trouble remembering the 1984 WHL final. Bodger, an assistant coach for the Victoria Royals, was in town this week for Games 3 and 4 of a Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Kamloops Blazers. The 52-year-old Chemainus product played on the blue line for the Junior Oilers for two seasons, the 19821983 and 1983-1984 campaigns. Kamloops and Regina squared off in the league final in 1984. The Pats led the series 3-2, with Games 6 and 7 scheduled to be played at Memorial Arena. “Game 6, they were up one goal with 20

seconds to go,” said Bodger, who had 21 goals and 98 points in 70 games in the 19831984 regular season. “We had a faceoff in their end. Dean Evason was our captain. I said, ‘Deano, 20 seconds left. You’re number 20. You’ve got to score.”

Evason scored with 12 seconds remaining in the third period. Ryan Stewart tallied in overtime to force Game 7, which Kamloops won 4-2 to reach the Memorial Cup. “The Regina bench was telling us to have good golf seasons

because they were up on us by one with 20 seconds to go,” Bodger said. “A little karma there.” The Junior Oilers placed third at the Memorial Cup in Kitchener. The Ottawa 67’s crushed the host Rangers 7-2 to win the national title. “We beat Mario’s team, though,” Bodger said with a laugh. Mario Lemieux and the Laval Voisins finished 0-3. “Winning a league championship here was pretty cool,” said Bodger, who was drafted ninth overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1984 and began his NHL career at 18. “It was the start of many banners up there. The franchise took off after we went to the Memorial Cup. “That old rink was pretty special.”

EMMA PAPPALARDO Sound engineer RunClub+

JAIME AULT 5K Sweet

RunClub is two parts: Run and Club. One side is about turning up each week, putting in the hard work and getting a better you out of it; the other side is running. Mental health is just as important as physical health and I have struggled with both. I know that on hard days, like Tuesday, I could message Jo and let her know where I was at. The answer is always the same: “Come to RunClub and let your family take care of you.” And we really are a family. Last year, I did my first 10K in Kelowna and it was tough, not so much physically because I had trained for it, but mentally. I am a slow runner (Team Sloth — we’ll get there when we get there) and it was disheartening to see people passing me. I felt like I was so slow that everyone who passed me judged me. It made me want to quit. But I had a fellow RunClubber with me. We kept pace and supported each other through it all and, in the end, I finished well under the two-hour time I had given myself. It’s amazing the things you can achieve when you have the support. I went to RunClub this past Monday and Tuesday and received hugs, encouragement and all the support I could ever hope to receive. I run for my physical health, but I RunClub for my mental health.

GROUP GOAL WARM-UP PLAYWORK

COOL DOWN TIPS

I learned a valuable lesson this week at RunClub. It’s not just about mind over matter and your desire to do something. You also need to put in the prep work beforehand. My sister was in town this week and came with me to training. She exercises regularly and runs much more than I do, but she came to support me. This gave me the added confidence to try the 5K Bold group this week — my sister and the much flatter ground of downtown. The 5K Bold group was running for four minutes and walking for two minutes. I thought. “I can do this.” But not too long into the second running segment, my calves cramped up — and they cramped up hard. I stopped to try stretching and immediately had a coach by my side, making sure I was OK. I ended up walking the rest of the way, but I was never left alone, never made to feel like I had failed and was supported the whole way. As for that valuable lesson? Hydrate, I was woefully unprepared for the run as I didn’t drink enough water during the day. I definitely won’t make that mistake again. I also learned that this group of people cares. Next week, I’m going to hydrate. I may return to the 5K Sweet group and get my confidence back, but whatever group I’m in, I know I won’t be alone.

WEEK 4

MAX PATEL KTW digital sales associate 10K Sweet After deciding to move up and train for a 10K run, my subconscious mind constantly challenged me, which left me wondering if I had made the right decision. The only way to find out was to run with the 10K group. A tip to others — if you’re planning to go for a Sunday morning run, try not to stay up late and enjoy copious amounts of alcohol. Jo Berry always reminds us that showing up is the most important part of training — which I did last Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m., following four hours of sleep. As we started running, I began having cramps. I was getting tired early and it only got more challenging with every step I took. While experiencing this, I remembered what Runners Sole owner Wayne Richardson told me: running is 30 per cent physical activity and 70 per cent mental strength. This is true. Even after being physically drained in the first five kilometres, I constantly reminded myself that I’m not a quitter and I won’t give up. Guess what? That helped me to not only complete my first 10K training successfully, but I finished strong and experienced the fabled “runner’s high” for the first time. This past Tuesday, I ran another 10K and am feeling confident as Boogie approaches.

Unleashing the power within “Your life changes the moment you make a new, congruent and committed decision. Decision is power.” — Tony Robbins. love Tony Robbins. He was a big part of my early awakening into a new way of life. Twenty years ago, one of my girlfriends asked me if I wanted to go on a road trip to Seattle to see her guru. I was not at all interested in Robbins, but I was super interested (and still am) in girlfriend road trips. It was a whirlwind trip — 48 hours — with a Robbins event in the middle. When we walked into the venue, all of Robbins’ people greeted us. Wearing big smiles, they made each and every person feel welcomed. Little did I know this road trip was about to change my life. There were 2,000 attendees Questions? and, during one of Go online to runclub.ca or send an email to Robbins’ exercises, joberry@ he said he and his boogiethebridge.com. team had selected 10 people from the audience to be part of his seminar. He said they picked people as they walked in that evening, those Robbins and his team felt had potential. One of his dynamic team members called out 10 names and — yes, you guessed it — mine was one of them. I was shocked. Standing on stage with the 6-foot-6, big energy Robbins was a moment I will never forget. My heart opened that day to all the possibilities life had for me. That was the day I got clear on how making solid, concrete decisions was incredibly important to put life into action. There is so much more to this story. For now, what’s important to share is how proud I am of the people who are at RunClub. They made a congruent and committed decision and have put it into action. Boogie on.

Drinking from the springs of Living Water

A

week ago today — March 22 —was World Water Day, as proclaimed by the United Nations. The proclamation reads: “Leaving no one behind, whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right.” It continues: “Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. Make every drop count.” This is a commendable goal. The focus is on people all over the world, but in particular for those who are marginalized. Any casual reader of the Bible will notice how much it has to say about proper supply, distribution and use of natural water. But even so, the word of God places heavier emphasis on the importance of “drinking at the streams of Living Water” of God for greater sustenance of life here and beyond. Out of the numerous references to water in the Bible, the one that sticks out forcefully to me is Isaiah 55:1, which states: “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat …” It is one thing to feel thirsty and yet to know water is near and we may go and drink. It is quite another to feel thirsty and to have to say, “Where is it? I cannot find it. I cannot get hold of it. It must be somewhere, but it is not where I am.” Many of us are thirsty in this first sense. Our thirst is the desire to know more and more of God. We cannot be satisfied today with yesterday’s blessing. We need to get closer and closer to God. Our real need is to feel more of His love, to realize more of His power and to live in His life, to taste the joy of communion with Him more and more. And, throughout eternity, it will still be more and more. It is the same aspiration with both nominal and real Christians. In both cases, their reality may be very limited. The latter know enough to feel their sins have been forgiven, but they have never gone on

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have

FAITH

to take hold of and enjoy their heritage in Christ. They are playing into the hands of false systems and are leading people to look elsewhere for the water to quench their thirst, implying Christ’s store seems to be exhausted. But it is not exhausted. We who ought to be enjoying it, how little many of us know about it. Isaiah’s voice, speaking for his God, rings out among the ranks of thirsty Christians. He starts with “Ho,” indicating the exclamation of a man who has made a great find. Many centuries after Isaiah, the voice of the ancient prophet was re-echoed in Jerusalem temple by one greater than him. Jesus stood and cried, saying: “If any man thirsts, let him come unto me and drink.” He had a thought for the thirsty ones. He had a heart of sympathy for the thirsty ones. He himself already anticipated his own great thirst to come upon the pitiless Cross when he would cry, “I thirst.” Jesus knows our thirst. It was part of the curse of sin that he himself was to bear. He who himself was to be thirsty — to know all the weariness of thirst that human spirits know — cried in the temple. And he cries still: “If any man thirst … any man, let him come unto me and drink.” Our Lord improved upon Isaiah. He did not stop just where Isaiah stopped. He did not tell us about the wine and milk without money and without price. But he went on to say something dearer than even that to

a heart that has any humanity in it. He said something that must make our spirits rejoice more than even quaffing deep draughts of bliss from the very hand of God. And what is that? “He that believes on me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” Thank God this is an improvement upon Isaiah. Jesus said it, Jesus meant it and Jesus is going to do it. Backsliding Christians, are you thirsty? Are you wailing out your woes in the pensive words of the hymn written by William Cowper: Where is the blessedness I knew When first I saw the Lord? Where is the soul-refreshing view Of Jesus and His Word? Backslider, Jesus said “any man.” Thank God there is room in that word for the backsliders, inconsistent Christians who have been trying to serve two masters — to live for the world and for God, too. “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.” Let us get this thought into our minds that we really may come. The blessing that I need is actually here. God intends us to have it. He does not mock the desire of the heart that He has made by empty rhetoric, by sounding phrases, by beautiful poetry, by the imagery that charms our fancy. No, God does not deal in mere tropes when He offers to us the realities of the Kingdom of heaven. The question can only be answered by the thirsty ones: “Will I go and drink and be satisfied?”

As a couple in the early years, they loved to go fishing on the small lakes in the Kamloops area and then once they bought the cabin in Scotch Creek, they enjoyed fishing on Shuswap Lake. She was the one that always caught the fish and always caught the biggest ones. They were always cruising up the lake to go boat camping and spent many hours on the lake in the boat with family in tow eating her famous potato salad. This was one of her many signature dishes that we all loved. Eva and Bud took many trips together with family to sunny destinations as she loved being in the sun, with Hawaii being her favourite.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Elizabeth Peniuk On Sunday, March 24, 2019, Mrs. Elizabeth Peniuk passed away peacefully with her family and close friends at her side. Liz was born July 29, 1940 in Loon Lake, Saskatchewan. Her parents emigrated from Austria and settled on a plot of farmland near there. Liz and her husband John moved to Kamloops and founded Metro Homes (manufactured housing sales) which they operated for well over 25 years. She was the strong force and motivation that John needed in his life. Liz loved nothing more than being outside in the sunshine. She took pleasure in the simple things - bonfires, fishing the local lakes and maintaining her beautiful home property. She also loved watching her birds on the deck. Liz was known to all as a fierce and loyal friend. Many considered her as a second mom. She will always be remembered for her wild hair and sunglasses. Liz is survived by her loving daughter Leanne Peniuk, her nieces, nephews and extended family. She was predeceased by her loving husband John Peniuk, brothers Bill Schmidt and Rudy Smith and her parents Wilhelm and Teresa Schmidt. A heartfelt thank you goes out to the amazing angels at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice House, the wonderful nurses of 4 North and 6 South at Royal Inland Hospital, Dr. Stinson, Dr. Frank and Dr. Louw. For anyone who wishes to do something in honour of Liz (and in lieu of flowers), please consider making a donation to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops V2E 2S9. We could not have made the final leg of Liz’s journey without this amazing house or the kind, caring, compassionate people and volunteers here. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, March 31, 2019, at the Knutsford Community Hall from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm with a dove release at 3:30 pm. Come celebrate the life of this amazing woman. Share stories, memories and be amongst those she loved. Condolences may be made to www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

In Loving Memory of

Florence Elizabeth Jane Reeb (Yerbury)

September 23, 1938 – March 18, 2019

It is with heartfelt sadness that our family announces the passing of Flo Reeb after a courageous battle with cancer. Flo was not only a caring Wife, Mom, Auntie, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother but also a cherished and dear friend to many people both near and far. Flo is survived by her loving and devoted husband Terry, brother Fred (Linda) of Alaska, sister Rose of Langley, children Robert (Pam) of Ontario, Nicki (Bryan) of Kamloops, Rick (Donna) of Kamloops and Gary of Chase, step-children Johnny of Kamloops, Victoria (Earl) of Vancouver, Terry Jr. (Jackie) of Vancouver and Leslie of South Dakota, by her nieces Patty, Candy, Lena and Krystal, nephews Kristopher and Colton, eight grandchildren Jennifer, Danielle, Kristopher, Meagan, Devon, Chad, Nevada and Sean, five great-grandchildren, Jake, Olivia, Cash, Blythe and Onyx. She had many close friends in Kamloops, Russ Pollard, Peggy Nixon, Deni Pollard, Al and Diane Fisher, Craig and Cindy Einfeld, Barry and Lonnie Zapf, Kenny and Cherie Yaretz and Collin Yaretz to name a few. She is predeceased by her parents Fred and Ivy Yerbury of Cranbrook, BC. Flo worked tirelessly and lived life to the fullest with complete passion. She was always the first person to step in and help others when in need and did whatever was required to help and make things right. She consistently put others needs ahead of hers no matter what the circumstance, even in her own time of need. It is an admirable trait that she has passed onto her children.

Shortly after meeting and marrying Terry in 2000, Flo joined him at Citation RV Ltd. in Kamloops. Over the years through hard work and dedication they built their business to be very successful. Flo loved her customers and took great pride in finding them just the right part they needed for their RV’s. Often spending an hour or so looking for parts, then giving it to them free of charge as a token of her kindness. During the winter months, they travelled to their second home in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico. Flo loved Mexico, its people and the culture. She looked forward to going to “The Office” in Cabo San Lucas where Terry and Flo befriended many of the staff. At Christmas she provided homemade gifts for all 60 staff members, truly remarkable and very much appreciated by all. She loved The Office staff and considered them as her extended Mexican family. Flo had a passion for gardening, cooking, baking and horses. Her love of horses lead her to the Kamloops Cattle Drive where she served on the Board of Directors for many years and made many lifelong acquaintances. The family would like to thank Dr. Stephanic, the RIH Cancer Clinic and the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice House for their unwavering support and care for Flo. We would also like to acknowledge Krista for her extra kind and warm care she provided Mom. At Flo’s request, there will be no service. We ask that Flo’s friends spend time together to share fond memories of this remarkable lady. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home in Kamloops would be appreciated and welcomed by her family. How deeply she will be missed by all the people who were lucky to have known her, you will forever be in our hearts and minds. The family will be having a celebration of life for Flo at Shuswap Lake this summer.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Eva Hannis (née Popp) It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Eva Hannis (née Popp) on March 22, 2019 at the age of 86 at Gemstone Care Centre in Kamloops, BC. Survived by cherished daughter Peggy King (Rob Burt) and adopted daughter Anne (John) Emerson (née Parkinson). Also survived by her beloved grandchildren Therese and (Jeff) Harrison, Abigail King (Bryce Galisky), Benjamin and (Vanna King), Tyler (Kayla) Page, sister Kay Berker, brother Matt (Sharon) Popp, sister-in-law Ruth Popp, brother-in-law Ted (Marilyn) Hannis. Also left behind are many nieces and nephews and eleven cherished great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her parents Martin and Elisabeta Popp and her loving husband William (Bud) Hannis, daughter Shirleen Page (née Hannis), brother Willy Popp, brother Martin Popp, brother-in-law Helmut Berker and nephew Martin Popp. Eva was born in Zemun, Yugoslavia on October 4, 1932. Mom was a homemaker and also helped Dad (Bud) with his construction business and was a loving mother to her two girls. She loved to work in her vegetable gardens and her beautiful flower gardens that she took much pride in.

As a couple in the early years, they loved to go fishing on the small lakes in the Kamloops area and then once they bought the cabin in Scotch Creek, they enjoyed fishing on Shuswap Lake. She was the one that always caught the fish and always caught the biggest ones. They were always cruising up the lake to go boat camping and spent many hours on the lake in the boat with family in tow eating her famous potato salad. This was one of her many signature dishes that we all loved. Eva and Bud took many trips together with family to sunny destinations as she loved being in the sun, with Hawaii being her favourite. She will be greatly missed but we know that she is pain free and in a better place. We have many beautiful memories that we hold close to our heart. Please help us celebrate her adventurous life at Kamloops Funeral Home on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 1:00 pm. Interment to follow after service at Hillside Cemetery.
