The City of Kamloops is working on a new policy to regulate who can and cannot perform on the streets. Under the proposed rules, a homeless person playing guitar for change could be moved along by bylaw officers, while pre-vetted, permit-holding performers would be given an audience. The street performer policy is being examined in the wake of last year’s inaugural International Buskers Festival, which will return to Kamloops this July. The festival features performers, including acrobats, magicians and musicians, in the downtown core. City events supervisor Sean Smith said the Kamloops Arts Council wants street performers differentiated from panhandlers. “The idea is to have the arts council vet the applications from performers,” Smith said, noting the proposal has performers paying a Kamloops Arts Council membership fee of $30, in addition to a $10 street-performing fee. Vetted performers would then be given identification proving they have met the requirements of Kamloops Arts Council.

“Then, when they are out on the street performing and not just panhandling, bylaws officers will be able to distinguish those who are acceptable or not and it just keeps policing and enforcement of it a little more streamlined,” Smith said. “It also encourages high quality of street performers to take up the trade on our streets, giving some ambience and atmosphere on downtown streets.” The city’s business licence and regulation bylaw allows sidewalk artists — any person producing and selling paintings and drawings on the sidewalk — but makes no mention of street performers or buskers. In fact, the city has no policy or bylaw to promote, regulate or enforce street performing. The proposed new rules, which are in the draft stage, would require permits by “everyone performing on city streets.” Under the proposed news rules, permits would need to be displayed at all times and would be valid from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, limited to one hour at any one location. Park performances would be allowed during hours parks are open to the public. See COUNCIL, A4

The union representing workers at the Highland Valley Copper mine near Logan Lake sees both positives and negatives from an automated haul truck pilot project underway there. Self-driving haul trucks have been in use at the copper and molybdenum mine since last fall in an effort to better understand the technology and whether it can a play role supporting the extension of HVC’s projected mine life to 2040 from 2028, according to company spokesperson Peter Martel. In an emailed statement to KTW, Martel said the pilot project is expected to continue through to the end of 2019. Though it is early, Martel said autonomous haul trucks have the potential to improve safety and operational efficiency, while reducing maintenance costs. Martel stressed there will be no layoffs as a result of use of the computer-controlled trucks in an area of the mine that employees more than 160 people and utilizes a total of about 50 trucks.

the union asked for, and has seen an increase in, apprenticeships at the mine. As senior members move into these jobs, their former positions could open up for a driver, Wolff said. However, the union president doesn’t see the haul truck jobs going the way of the dinosaur, as he believes there will always be a need for a person in that role, just not in the same capacity. “You can’t program a truck to do everything a human can do,” Wolff said. Automated technology has taken jobs away at the mine in the past. “We’ve seen the amount of crush operators go from three to two, we’ve seen our operators in the mill go from five to three,” Wolff. Though automation has already replaced jobs, Wolff said there has been about 1,000 positions at the mine for the last 10 years and he doesn’t expect it to dip below that number in the immediate future. In January, the Globe and Mail reported that About 400 jobs are expected to disappear at Suncor Energy Inc.’s oilsands mines in northern Alberta as it adds 150 driverless trucks in the next six years. Suncor is the first oilsands mining operation to adopt the technology.

Under the proposed new rules, one performer per street block would be permitted and performers and audiences would not be able to impede pedestrians, doorways or display windows. Performers could perform longer than one hour if they moved at least one block from their previous location. Battery-powered amplification would be considered on a case-by-case basis. If neighbouring businesses or residents complain about the noise, the volume would have to be turned down. Two noise complaints could result in bylaws revoking a permit. City staff say other municipalities are adopting similar policies, noting the adjudication process gives legitimacy to those who travel from across the country to showcase their talents and make some cash. Coun. Mike O’Reilly, however, questioned what will happen to homeless people performing without a permit. He said he respects the sentiment of the new policy specific to the Buskers Festival, but not for the rest of the year. This year’s International Buskers Festival will run from July 25 to July 28. “I don’t mind somebody juggling to try and make a little bit of money instead of going and breaking into a car,” O’Reilly said. “It seems like a $30 fee doesn’t seem like a lot, but $30 is a lot to a homeless person. If you look at the enforcement area, of asking the bylaw and RCMP officers to be dealing with this, as well, I would suggest they might be better off dealing with more serious crimes than the guy juggling balls.” That situation is considered panhandling, which is contrary to city bylaws. City community and protective services director Byron McCorkell said

with social services available in the community, “there is no reason to be panhandling for the sake of panhandling.” He said the city regularly hears concerns from the public about being approached while walking down the street. “The idea here is to encourage and support art and buskers in a professional way, such that you’re providing a service to the community, whereas you’re still suggesting panhandling is not the way you want people to be greeted in the downtown core,” McCorkell said. “It’s a fine line, I agree, but really that’s the principle of it.” The policy will go to council at a later date. PROPOSED STREET PERFORMING POLICY: • Everyone performing on city streets must have a valid street performer permit and permits must be displayed at all times during performances. • Permits can be issued to artists ages 16 and older, with those ages 13 to 15 capable of performing if accompanied by a parent. Entertainment groups are limited to three members. • Permits are valid between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., seven days a week, to a maximum of one hour per location. After one hour, performers can move to a new location at least one block away. • Only battery-powered amplification is allowed and must be included in the permit. Voice amplification is not allowed, except on a case-by-case basis. The sound level must be reasonable and intended for an audience within 10 metres. If residents or businesses complain, performers must lower the volume. Two noise complaints can lead to loss of permit. • The use of sharp or dangerous objects is prohibited, for example juggling knives, chainsaws or flaming objects.

A tractor-trailer that overturned into a ditch on Mission Flats Road on Tuesday morning did not release any hazardous materials, according to B.C.’s Ministry of Environment. “It was carrying aluminum sulfate,” ministry spokesman David Karn told KTW. “There’s been no release. Crews are dealing with it.” Aluminum sulfate is a chemical compound mainly used as a coagulating agent in the purification of drinking water and wastewater-treatment plants. It is also used in paper manufacturing. The compound is known to be a skin and eye irritant and can be corrosive. The truck overturned near the city’s wastewatertreatment facility. Cleanup crews were on scene of the incident early Tuesday afternoon. No injuries were reported. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

$9 million in work planned for pool GRANTS WOULD LEAVE $5.7 MILLION TO BE FUNDED THROUGH DEBT JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

About $9 million worth of repairs and improvements are needed at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. Of that amount, $5.7 million would be borrowed by the city if it is successful in receiving money from the federal Community Works Fund and the provincial CleanBC Communities Fund. The proposal from staff — which council was considering on Tuesday, after KTW press deadline — is meant to address aging infrastructure and make the facility more energy efficient. The pool, which predates the Tournament Capital Centre in which it now sits, was built in 1992. City staff say the facility has been well-maintained, but the building envelope and mechanical, electrical, heating and ventilation systems are nearing or

past their life expectancies. The repairs are expected to begin in late 2020 after the 55+ Games are held at the venue. City sustainability supervisor Glen Cheetham said the infrastructure work provides an opportunity to make the facility more energy-efficient. “There is a need to make some improvements to the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, its various systems like its walls, its roof structures and its mechanical systems,” he said. “And so the city has pursued this [provincial] funding to help support doing measures that go above and beyond the code requirements for a project like this and to try to use technologies that are available to really improve the energy-efficiency.” Cheetham said the facility is responsible for 10 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions linked to municipal operations. The upgrades are expected to improve the facility’s efficiency by between 25 and 50 per cent.

Property or business insurance claim denied? Do you have complex commercial claims?

One improvement is heat recovery. Pools are humid and require air circulation to manage humidity and prevent damage to the building’s structure and mechanical systems. “Conventionally, you’re venting a lot of air out of the pool and with that air goes a lot of heat,” Cheetham said. “There is opportunity to capture that heat and put it back into the pool system so that you’re still addressing your ventilation requirements without wasting energy.” Financing includes little more than a third of federal and provincial funds, with $2.9 million earmarked from the federal Community Works Fund, money given to municipalities twice annually for various projects. In addition, the city has submitted an application to the province for $458,000 from the CleanBC Communities Fund. The city could hear back in the next few months on whether it will receive that grant funding. The remaining $5.7 million needed would be financed through debt.

Hygiene products back in SD73 bathrooms MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A new ministerial order means feminine hygiene products will once again be stocked in girls washrooms — this time free of charge. School District 73 is looking forward to providing improved access to the products as the province has ordered all B.C. public schools to provide free menstrual products in washrooms by the end of 2019. SD73 already offers the products for free, but only when requested at a school or counselling office. Kamloops-Thompson school board chair Kathleen Karpuk told

KTW the change means girls in SD73 can access the products discretely. “Students won’t have to ask for them,” she said. Education Minister Rob Fleming issued the order, which comes with $300,000 in provincial startup funding. In the coming months, the ministry plans to examine the needs of each district, identify gaps and ensure they have the funding needed to meet the new requirement. SD73 director of instruction Trish Smillie said district schools receive feminine hygiene products free of charge from major drugstore

brands, so she doesn’t anticipate the order will have much of a change locally. “With the new ministerial order, we anticipate the menstrual products will just be available more consistently,” Smillie said. She said schools in SD73 previously had paid tampon dispensers, but those machines are either no longer stocked or have been removed from the bathrooms altogether. Smillie anticipates the school district’s share of the $300,000 will go toward conducting an inventory of washrooms and assessing how best to offer feminine hygiene prod-

ucts in all facilities. “From there, that seed money will be used for any kind of capital adjustments we need,” she said. Smillie said the government is providing districts with information regarding the types of inventory schools can bring in to dispense feminine hygiene products without charge. “It’s time to have the stigma and inconvenience and cost removed around students having their periods,” Smillie said. “Now they’ll have consistent free access with a reduction of the barriers — they won’t have to go to the office to get them.”

Bridge to Housing, operated by the Canadian Mental Health Association at 185 Royal Ave. in North Kamloops, opened last fall and was expected to provide housing for up to 40 homeless adults through this spring. It remains open and will operate for the foreseeable future. In the spring of 2018, the province

In addition to the West Victoria Street project (which begins on April 15 and may last for up to two years) and the Todd Road project in Barnhartvale (which will begin in May), several other road projects will be tackled through the warmer months. City streets manager Glen Farrow said the city will begin work soon on Riverview Road in Westsyde, with two other local roads projects to follow — a portion of Gleneagles Drive in Sahali and Wedgewood Crescent in Westmount. Valleyview Drive will also be resurfaced from Rose Hill Road to Valleyview secondary, following work by BC Hydro last year to upgrade electrical equipment and increase power to residents in the area. “We’ll be coming in there and doing a bunch of work,” Farrow said. “We plan on doing a mill and fill, essentially resurfacing.”

The city is also connecting with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, which will be doing work in the area. “We’re partnering with them on a bunch of stuff that’s very close to their onoff ramps near Copperhead, Pacific Way and Hillside Drive,” Farrow said. Meanwhile, the city will also tackle work in Brocklehurst, between Parkcrest Avenue and Ord Road, on phase two of the Singh Street project that began last year. “Phase two is improvements around the railway crossing, as well as the new multiuse path on the east side of the road,” Farrow said. “And then there’s a new parking lot as well going in on the west side of Singh, right on the intersection of Ord and Singh.” Farrow said the West Victoria Street project will have the largest impact on traffic this summer, but he is asking those who live near all roads projects to have patience. He said working in traffic is “always a challenge.” The city’s patching crew will also be out through the community. Farrow said the next major road

City of Kamloops

project to be undertaken by the city will be Tranquille Road in 2020, with sewer upgrades being the driving force behind the project between 12th Street and Ridgeview Terrace. “That’s scheduled to be done next year, but there are some sections of that road where the asphalt’s failing and we need to come in and some smaller patches,” Farrow said. “Put down some Band-aids, essentially, to get us through next winter into construction in 2020.” As for ridding the streets of all that gravel spread during winter, most of North Kamloops and Brocklehurst have been swept, with the city moving out into Westsyde and Valleyview in the coming days and downtown on the north side of Columbia Street to follow. ZIPPER MERGE REFRESHER: Drivers are reminded to use both lanes of traffic until the point at which they are required to go down to one lane. Use both lanes throughout. “It improves the flow of traffic and it is a safer movement to have everyone going those slower speeds,” Farrow said.

SD73 IS AHEAD OF CURVE ON ISSUE

A

decision by the provincial government last week garnered plenty of headlines and much discussion — and deservedly so. Education Minister Rob Fleming issued the order that means feminine hygiene products will be stocked in girls washrooms across B.C. and available free of charge. The good news locally is that the Kamloops-Thompson school district was ahead of the curve as it already has a stock of feminine hygiene products it hands out at no charge to students requesting them. The product is donated to the school district by the drug store companies. The ministerial order does, however, go one step further in that it will result in feminine hygiene products being available in washrooms. This means girls who might otherwise not feel comfortable asking a school staff member for such an item can access it in the privacy of a washroom. Trish Smillie, SD73’s director of instruction, summed it up nicely when speaking to KTW on the issue: “It’s time to have the stigma and inconvenience and cost removed around students having their periods,” Smillie said. “Now they’ll have consistent free access with a reduction of the barriers — they won’t have to go to the office to get them.” Removing the stigma, inconvenience and cost is a massive step in the right direction and many are understandable flabbergasted that this move took until 2019 to happen. Believe it or not, the provincewide program is the first of its kind in Canada, which may explain why the most recent Always Confidence and Puberty Survey revealed that one in seven Canadian Girls have either left school early or missed school entirely because they did not have access to period products, either due to cost or means of access.

Caring for entire building

I

n the words of Paul Simon, “One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor.” It didn’t take me long to learn all about perspective when I first joined city council. I began to understand that while I and some of my constituents had a particular view on issues that faced the city, it may not be shared by others in the community. When you first run for office, your perspective is limited to your own beliefs and, to some degree, the input from those with whom you associate. There are those who fervently agree with you and help to create a platform you then take to the public while campaigning. You are truly committed to your positions and promise to do all you can to bring about the necessary changes you and your supporters feel are needed. A successful run indicates your positions on issues have resonated with enough members of the community to help get you elected. Once in office, reality sinks in. Each and every council member has their core group of likeminded supporters, but they soon realize that support doesn’t represent the whole community. Your responsibility as a local government official is to work for the community as a whole. Every member of the public has their own take on policy, vision, budgets, policing, etc., and each of them look to you to not only listen and consider their opinion, but in many cases to agree with them. As a member of council, you are valued for your independent thinking and your ability to consider

DIETER DUDY View From

CITY HALL all aspects of issues that face your community, but you also have individual beliefs and biases that will affect how you deal with certain matters. For every position a councillor takes, there are others who have an opposite point of view. While we can allow our personal biases and beliefs to help us when making decisions on many issues, there is one area in which we are obligated by law to have an open mind. Public hearings are forums where the public can come forward and voice their opinions on property use and zoning. Council is obligated to listen and consider all that is addressed by the public before entering into deliberations. Once the public has had the opportunity to fully voice their take on the issue at hand, then, and only then, can each member of council pass judgment on the matter. Council is effectively put into a quasi-judicial position not unlike a judge. Regardless of the criteria, in

the end, each and every council member is put into the position of having to render a decision. With nine members on council, this can involve much debate as each member will have processed the received information according to their own interpretation. Once in a while, council can be in full agreement on an item; at other times, debate can be quite involved and the end result will inevitably have some not agreeing with the outcome. To council’s credit, though, once a decision has been made, it has been made as a council and will then be defended by council moving forward. The public may not be so forgiving, though. In many cases in which groups have either been for or against an initiative, policy, compliance issue, etc. and have had council vote contrary to their position, we will be viewed as not having listened to them. Most people — understandably so — feel their perspective is the right perspective and should be the supported one. The issue is that council is faced with many perspectives and must ultimately choose from them to determine which best ensures the public interest is being addressed. We cannot allow ourselves to be swayed by emotion, threats, vilification, etc., but must remain reasoned, rational and considerate when deliberating. So, while one person’s ceiling is indeed another person’s floor, we have been entrusted in ensuring care is taken of the whole building. Dieter Dudy is a Kamloops councillor.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR RIH STAFF GET MY THANKS Editor: For the past year, I have been an in-patient and an out-patient at Royal Inland Hospital. I want to thank the doctors, surgeons and, above all, the sweet, caring nurses. You fix us when we are broken and we are all lucky to have you. Thank you Mary Mountfort Kamloops

KUDOS TO KTW’S COVERAGE Editor: I loved seeing the Sarah Seymour story in the April 5 edition of KTW (‘Sarah snares youth summit spot’). It’s good to see more good news stories about our young people in the paper and online in social media, as well. KTW is doing a great job. Thank you. Janet Michael Kamloops

DON’T UNDERESTIMATE POWER OF THE ARTS Editor: Recently, I read a report on School District 73’s high priority budget items. I was struck not by what was included, but what was not. Certainly I cannot argue the importance of the areas listed. If the academic studies leading to greater skill development in numeracy requires more money to bring the district up to a reasonable standard, so be it. Certainly the area of mathematics is important to develop the rigorous analysis of our civilization. It is the “Sparta” of our curricula, becoming increasingly necessary in all science subdisciplines. But considering the fact our global civilization is under increasing social and environmental

attack akin to the desperate times of the Second World War, it seems to me our educational system should be more of a leader than ever, emphasizing the common humanity of all peoples. This requires a literacy only found through the arts, those studies and skills by which we are sensitized to see, hear and feel the emotional world that unites us all. They are the “Athens” of the curricula. Music, theater, sculpture, literature — the arts in all its forms — are the humanizing and integrative elements of all societies. They are the warp and woof in the tapestry of civilization. Who has not been inspired by the choral symphony Ode to Joy, the choir singing of the brotherhood of man and lifting spirits to the heavens? Who has not been moved to tears at the vio-

lence in a stage or film production of Richard Wagamese’s Indian Horse? Who has not marvelled at the Renaissance humanism of Michelangelo’s David as he represents the force of opposition to Goliath’s tyranny? Who has not felt the warmth of boyhood friendship in Mark Twain’s Adventures of Tom Sawyer? And where does this sensitivity begin and increase? It is through a school system that recognizes the power of the arts. We are in peril if we do not invest in them in a substantial way. By all means, train the intellect, but at the same time, prioritize the soul. Ian MacKenzie Kamloops

MORE TO RESPONSE TIME THAN MEETS THE EYE Editor: The April 5 KTW article on response to medical calls (‘Change in response policy has firefighters concerned’) expresses the concerns of firefighters and their union, the International Association of Fire Fighters. However, the information being given to the reporter is very inflammatory, not vetted or verified and the reader is left with the impression firefighters are so well trained that they diagnose spinal cord injuries, heart attacks and more.

A PATH TO A CRASH

First and foremost, firefighters have two weeks of first-aid training, the same as an industrial first-aid attendant. Secondly a rapid response to stand and reassure a patient waiting for an ambulance does little to reduce the workload of paramedics and does absolutely nothing in the way of transporting the patient to the appropriate medical facility. Many well documented medical studies in Canada demonstrate that unless a patient has

no pulse, has stopped breathing, is bleeding to death or trapped (which is four to six per cent of all calls), firefighters make no difference in the outcome of the patient or the length of their hospital stay. It’s good to raise concerns about lack of resources in any emergency service, but allowing false statements to evoke fear in the public is irresponsible. Geoff Taylor Kamloops

City staff should split the path, with walkers on one half and cyclists on the other. Why was that not done to begin with? Hurry, please. We also want to be out enjoying the sunshine. Alea Thomp Kamloops

Editor: On the relatively new and super Peterson Creek Xget’tem pathway, there may be an accident with speeding bikes and hikers. I hope not. Patrick White Kamloops

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

IF THE WORLD CHANGES, IT WILL BE WOMEN BEHIND IT Editor: Here is a perspective I have a not heard amongst the barrage of speculation and opinion about the SNC-Lavalin affair. I suspect Jody Wilson-Raybould knew which direction things were going when she recorded her conversation with Michael Wernick. I suspect she was covering herself, hoping she’d never have to use the recording. She waited a long time. But the Liberal Party of Canada and Prime Minister

Justin Trudeau pushed her. What is happening right now is a deeper feminism than any conversation about equality and equity. It is a demonstration by women who want to use skills different from those of men in a culture based on a patriarchal foundation of adversarial old boy ways of doing business. (Think Donald Trump, Doug Ford, etc.) Trudeau set himself up as the feminist prime minister who was going to do government

in a different way. When those two women — Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott — held him to his word, he got more than he bargained for, and so did they when they were evicted from the old boys’ club for not obeying their rules and refusing to be bullied. I say bravo, bravo. We will see more of this as women gain equal power because research repeatedly shows women do things differently — more collaboratively and cooperatively.

I have not heard anyone mention that in her recording with Wernick, Wilson-Raybould was without doubt trying to protect Trudeau, to inform him that what he was doing was unacceptable and inappropriate. Everyone has forgotten it started with a broken law. The real point of it has become lost in the rhetoric of the media and what they choose to sensationalize, and politicians using what they can to get elected in the fall. I can see them licking their lips

right now. Handmaidens to an unchanged system, unable to wait until tomorrow, when they can continue to aggrandize the game of politics, so-called democracy and their own spin-doctoring. These are very interesting times. The world is going to be turned upside down before we know if this planet will survive both the inner and outer landscape. If it changes, it will be the women who do it. Wendy Weseen Kamloops

NO PLASTIC BAG BAN UNTIL CITY HALL GIVES US ALTERNATIVES Editor: The discontinued use of plastic straws and plastic take-out food containers works because restaurants that have done so have provided recyclable and/or biodegradable alternatives to the plastic products they no longer use. Banning all grocery store plastic bags, however, does present a problem.

We use some insulated bags and some cloth bags when we shop for groceries, but we also purchase a few plastic bags for four cents each at the checkout. These grocery store plastic bags are already made from recycled plastic and we subsequently use them to dispose of wet kitchen waste (vegetable peelings, meat trimmings, egg shells, coffee filters, etc.), so they are defi-

nitely not single use. Putting wet kitchen waste directly into the garbage bin would create a wet stinky mess inside a garage and a huge bear attractant if bins are kept in a carport between weekly pickups. Washing out a large garbage bin every week is not realistic, especially in winter, because it would waste a lot of water and still leave the

dirty water be disposed of somewhere. Not everyone has a backyard composter (some don’t even have backyards) and there is no curbside recycling program for kitchen waste. It would be irresponsible for Kamloops council to ban plastic bags without first providing a convenient and realistic alternative. Ken Dalke, Kamloops

New numbers reveal what Kamloops residents were hacking up last summer. The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change says fine particulate matter, known as PM2.5, in Kamloops once again last year exceeded air quality objectives due to smoke from wildfires. “’17 and ’18 were unprecedented,” Ministry of Environment and Climate Change air quality meteorologist Ralph Adams said. “Much higher than any previous years. Fine particulate matters exceeded for everything and it happened in most communities in the Interior. If we try to take out the wildfires, it seems to indicate that Kamloops is approximately at the objective level and it’s staying there. It’s not moving up or down. There’s no trend.” The ministry measures 24-hour and annual averages of

gases that do not carry a health risk, but are considered a nuisance, Kamloops in 2018 experienced 76 hours over the maximum desirable level of five parts per billion over one hour. “To put it in context, the values in Prince George are usually around 1,000 [hours] in a year,” Adams said. “We are quite similar to Quesnel and other places that have a pulp mill, but we are much lower than Prince George, which has three mills.” While it remains unclear whether this coming summer will bring similar air quality challenges, KTW asked if there is anything that can be done to prevent or cope with the smoke. Adams said two measures in theory can be done: stop the emissions of the smoke (putting out the fires) and stop the transport of the smoke. Short of that, he recommended seeking refuge in large buildings with good air conditioning/ HVAC systems and purchasing HEPA filters to lower smoke concentration at home.

Become fire smart Kamloops firefighters will be going doorto-door in Pineview, Westsyde and Heffley Creek through April to educate residents on fireproofing their homes. Residents can fire smart their properties by removing debris such as leaves, twigs and needles from around their house and under decks. More tips are online at tinyurl.com/y2f2srbs.

the contaminant because risks to human health come from low levels of exposure over long periods of time or high levels of exposure over short periods of time. In 2018, the Federal Building air station downtown — at Seymour and Third — measured an annual average value of 12.5 micrograms per cubic metre, exceeding B.C.’s objective of eight micrograms per cubic metre. By comparison, 2017 saw 15.3 micrograms per cubic metre and 2016, when the city was not socked in from wildfire smoke, recorded an annual average of 7.8 micrograms per cubic metre. Adam said it is expected air quality goal in Kamloops would have been met had wildfires not been burning in the region. In addition to PM2.5, the ministry measures levels of nitrogen oxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, total reduced sulphur and SO2, all of which were determined to be well below objective levels. As for odours from sulphur

Jason Robertson is going back to jail. Nearly five years after a series of residential raids led to a raft of charges against the alleged Kamloops gangster, the B.C. Court of Appeal revealed its decision on Tuesday, sending the 34-year-old to prison. Robertson was sentenced last year to 18 months behind bars after a judge found him guilty on five weaponsand property-related

offences, as well as one count of identity theft. Three days after his sentence, Robertson was granted bail pending his appeal and had been free since. In May 2014, police raided three homes owned by Robertson. Following the raids, Mounties took reporters to an evidence room at the Kamloops RCMP detachment and displayed dozens of firearms and electronics seized in the raids, as well as cash and drugs. Investigators said at the time the operation was gang-related and Hells

Angels support decals were visible on some of the seized items. Mounties announced more than 50 charges against Robertson and his wife, Sarah. Most of those allegations, including all of those against Sarah Robertson, were thrown out due to charter breaches and “overseizure,” a judge ruled. A three-judge B.C. Court of Appeal panel ruled on Tuesday that, though both Jason and Sarah Robertson’s rights were breached by police, the sentencing judge was not out of line in allowing Jason

Robertson’s charges to remain before the court. The bulk of Robertson’s 18-month prison sentence was for a conviction of possession of a stolen firearm, which carries a mandatory one-year sentence. During Robertson’s sentencing in February 2018, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Jeanne Watchuk ordered police to return 34 legally owned firearms seized by police during their search of Robertson’s home. During proceedings in 2016, when defence lawyers challenged

the methods used by police while executing their search warrant, surveillance footage from Robertson’s home

played in court showing officers joking about leaving live ammunition in the family’s fireplace and seizing their

passports to stop them from travelling. A lead investigator later called the incident “straight humour.”

SD73 plans $181-million budget MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

School District 73 is looking to improve mental-health services, enhance students’ numeracy skills and manage enrolment growth as it drafts the 2019-2020 budget. Speaking at a public budget meeting last Thursday night, school board chair Kathleen Karpuk said this is the first time “in recent history” in which the budget isn’t being driven by cuts. “This budget has been driven by priorities set by the board and because we actually have a little bit of money this year beyond our basics, we have been able to focus on those strategic priorities,” Karpuk said. SD73 plans to add another school and family consultant, a part-time healthy relationships co-ordinator and a full-time assistant manager for custodial staff to its operating budget for 2019-2020. Karpuk said maintenance staff work as early as 6 a.m. and as

late as 11 p.m. “And you only have one manager covering an eight-hour shift, which means there’s people in schools alone who don’t have anybody they can call in case of an emergency,” Karpuk said. “This will ensure there’s always somebody around for them to call if something happens.” Karpuk told KTW adding another full-time school and family consultant will help address youth mental-heath challenges, noting the healthy relationships co-ordinator was a recommendation from the superintendent’s task force on student safety. Additional teacher release time and resources for math teachers is also among the district’s priorities. “We’re going to be putting on more workshops and more focused professional development with our teachers on numeracy,” Karpuk said. Three Aboriginal education teachers will now be funded from the district’s operating budget, freeing up more dollars in the Aboriginal education targeted fund.

The district plans to hire a full-time web technician to look after its intranet and a parttime project manager to assist with the addition of new portables, repurposing classroom spaces and the re-opening of Westsyde elementary. Key budget initiatives for SD73 are to improve outcomes in numeracy, communication and Aboriginal success and address increasing enrolment and mentalhealth issues. The 2019-2020 budget is projected to be $181 million, compared to the $182.5 million the 2018-2019 amended budget. The operating budget is projected to be about $154 million — $1 million more than what it was in 2018-2019’s final amended budget. Trina Cassidy, finance director for SD73, said the district will allocate more than $162,000 into operating the re-opened Westsyde elementary. There will be required increases in the operating budget, such as more than $2 million more in salary for its employee groups — including more than $1 million for teachers.

Another $200,000 will be spent on other increased costs, such as utilities and employee benefits. Cassidy said prep time for elementary school teachers is increasing from 100 minutes per week to 110 minutes per week. On the capital side of the budget, which is an estimated $9.64 million, SD73 is budgeting $648,000 for more portables. The district will have a bit more in per student funding from the province at brick and mortar schools. For the 2017-2018 school year, per student funding was $7,301. In 2018-2019, it was $7,42. In 2019-2020, it will be $7,468. The KamloopsThompson is among the 12 fastest-growing districts in B.C., said secretary treasurer Kelvin Stretch, citing a chart listing percentage of growth in funded FTE among the 60 districts for the 2018-2019 school year. The district is among the 10 fastest-growing districts in the province, according to SD73.

From $8K in underwear to probation term MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A 25-year-old man who stole more than $8,000 from a trailer and fled the scene with the cash stuffed in his underwear has been sentenced to two years of probation. Acting as his own counsel last Friday in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops, Stephen

Smith pleaded guilty to theft over $5,000 in connection to the offence that occurred at a residence in the G&M Trailer Park in June of 2017. The trailer park is located off Highway 5, across from Sun Rivers. Outlining the circumstances of the incident, Crown prosecutor Neil Flanagan told the court what Smith told him. Flanagan said Smith became aware of the

money in the mobile home while at a party at which he overheard the resident, whom he did not know, talking about the cash. At 5:30 a.m. on June 21, 2017, Smith broke into the man’s trailer through a bedroom window, found the $8,100 in the pocket of a ski-doo suit and stuffed it in his underwear, Flanagan told court. Smith’s presence in

his underwear. In speaking with Smith, Flanagan said the accused didn’t seem interested in heading to trial and wanted to resolve the court matter. “Mr. Smith is a person who really is trying to get himself on a better path,” Flanagan said, noting he comes from a background of crime and wants to break away from it. Flanagan also pointed to mitigating factors — the fact Smith pleaded guilty, regretted his actions and acknowledged how serious they were.

“He [Smith] tells me, and he’s very frank about it, he was desperate and this, to him, was an opportunity for easy money,” Flanagan told the court. “It’s not something he’s proud of,” Smith told the court he is interested in the trades and is working with an employment program to help him find stable work. He also submitted to the court multiple letters of support from friends and family and one from himself detailing circumstances that led to the theft.

Justice Sherri Donegan accepted the Crown’s submission, with which Smith was in agreement, to place him on a two-year probation order — a condition of which will involve writing a letter of apology to the people from whom he stole. “I’ll put your mind at ease. You’re both pushing on an open door here,” Donegan said. “I’m very much in favour of what’s been proposed as a sentence. I’m not going to put you in jail.” “I’m happy to hear that,” Smith replied.

the home was discovered by a 12-year-old boy who was home alone at the time, as his parents had just left for work, Flanagan said. Smith told Flanagan he apologized to the boy and left the residence. The boy described Smith’s departure to Flanagan with the expression, “He booted it out of there,” after which the boy called police. Fleeing the scene, Smith attempted to swim across the South Thompson River, but RCMP officers fished him out of the water and the $8,000 was found in

Kamloops Mounties are looking for a jewelry thief who stole thousands of dollars worth of product from an Aberdeen Mall store and hours later ran his vehicle into a woman in a motel parking lot. The incidents occurred on Saturday, April 6. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said a man walked into the Michael Hill store in Aberdeen Mall at 3:30 p.m. and stole more than $4,000 worth of jewelry. She said the man left the store and got into a black SUV that was parked outside. The SUV had tinted rear windows, large, black after-market styled rims, a white front bumper

and no front licence plate. The theft suspect is white, in his 30s and stands about 5-foot-10, with a medium build. Later that same day, at 10 p.m., Shelkie said, a man asked to rent a room at the Days Inn Hotel on Rogers Place in Aberdeen, right across the freeway from the mall. When told there were no rooms

available, the man left the lobby, got into his vehicle and backed out of his parking space at a high rate of speed, striking a woman who was standing in the parking lot. The vehicle then sped away. The woman received minor injuries and was treated on scene by paramedics. Shelkie said surveillance video from both the mall and the hotel show the same vehicle was used in the theft and the hit and run, noting photos of the male suspect are similar.

James Walker and his support therapy parrot Gadget are travelling across Canada to raise money for autism, a disability that affects Walker’s 10-year-old son. Walker lives in Calgary but is originally from Kamloops.

City man, bird, hitting road to raise money for autism fight James Walker suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident when he was 19 years old. Throughout his life, he has taken medication and sought treatment to deal with the effects of his injury, but nothing has quite had the impact his new friend has — a parrot named Gadget. The 10-year-old Brazilian caique has been by Walker’s side as his emotional support animal for about a year. Since the two paired up, Walker has felt comfortable stopping medication he has relied on in the past to feel normal. Gadget goes everywhere his owner does — restaurants, in his car and even to visit newspaper offices. Walker, 44, said the two have been inseparable since he got the bird last year. “Just having that companionship — that buddy. I don’t want to say he replaced my son’s role, but I often tell people he’s my conscience, sitting up on my shoulder,” he said. Soon, Gadget will accompany Walker on a much bigger trip — one that spans the entire country, in an effort to raise

money for autism, a disability that affects his 10-year-old son Christopher. Walker and his wife recently separated, but prior to that, both lived in Calgary and benefited from the supports provided by that province. Christopher and his mother now live in Newfoundland and Walker said he has found the support in that province could be better, so he’s working to change it. “There’s not a lot of funding for autism in Newfoundland. Alberta is the place to be in Canada,” Walker said. “I noticed there wasn’t a lot of supports out there, so I thought OK, how can I make a little bit of a difference? So I came up with this idea,” he said. Walker found inspiration in Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion Tour and paid homage by naming his own tour Bird in Motion. The pair is set to leave from Calgary, where Walker now lives, on June 1. He plans to arrive in Newfoundland by July and return to Calgary by August — though he said his plans are flexible and his travels may be extended. Walker will cross the country

relying on his own two feet and the help from those he encounters on social media. He plans to walk and use ride-sharing and hitchhiking apps when other drivers are available. Donations will be collected on the bird’s Facebook page, on GoFundMe and in person at meet-and-greet events featuring Gadget. While in Kamloops, Walker said he met a young boy with autism at McDonald’s — and he hopes the encounters he has on the road will have the same effect. “The boy was amazed with him,” Walker said of the boy’s interaction with Gadget. “He couldn’t believe how friendly he was and he brought a smile to his face. That’s really what he does for me, too.” The funds Walker raises will be donated to Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. Walker is planning a launch party in Calgary and awaiting the approval of his charity status. “I just want to try to help some families,” he said. The online fundraising page can be found at https://www. gofundme.com/helpgadgetraiseautismawareness.

Hungry stowaway cat found in crate in Prince George Feline from China was in container for more than a month CANADIAN PRESS

PRINCE GEORGE — An orange tabby cat is likely to have used up more than a few of its nine lives during an unauthorized trip from China to British Columbia. The North Cariboo District Branch of the B.C. SPCA said the emaciated, six-year-old female was found inside a shipping container originally loaded nearly a month ago in Shenzhen. The container arrived by freighter in the Port of Vancouver and was shipped to Prince George, where the unnamed cat was found amongst the pallets, shredded cardboard and foam pellets inside the container. No food or water was available

but it’s believed the cat survived by licking condensation that had formed on the walls of the shipping container. Animal control officers said the feline weighed just 1 1/2 kilograms when it was found by staff at a Prince George auto glass distribution company. The cat is quarantined while being nursed back to health and the SPCA estimates the cost to save it will reach almost $2,800. Alex Schare with North Cariboo District SPCA said she knew right away that the cat would have an amazing story, but would also require life-saving care following weeks of starvation. “We rushed her to the vet because she was in such poor

condition that we knew she would require intensive veterinary care for an extended period of time to regain her strength,’’ Schare said in a news release. The cat is on fluids and is receiving small amounts of food to ensure its body adjusts properly to renewed nutrition. The strict quarantine is to ensure no diseases are passed to people or animals in this country. “She has also undergone blood work and will receive a rabies vaccine and dental work when she is strong enough,’’ the release said. Quarantine won’t end until two weeks after the rabies shot, so the cat will be under care for some time. The SPCA is appealing for donations to help defray the costs.

Vancouver-area mayors want annual transit funding across Canada CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — Mayors from across Metro Vancouver gathered at a busy rapid transit station in Vancouver to demand stable, secure transit funding for all municipalities in Canada. Members of the Mayor’s Council on Regional Transportation are launching the Cure Congestion campaign in advance of the upcoming federal election. Council chairman, New Westminster Mayor Jonathan Cote, said a significant part of the council’s 10-year transportation plan has federal backing for projects across the region, but those

funds are expecterd to expire after a few years. Cote said the council wants to see a predictable, annual funding formula extended to all urban municipalities in Canada, saying it will ensure certainty for future development. Cote said the time to promote the campaign is now, as political parties hammer out platforms for the Oct. 21 federal election. Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese, the council’s vice-chairman, said federal, provincial and municipal partnerships have built on “collective momentum’’ over the last three years, and congestion will worsen if that isn’t maintained.

Mueller report to be released within a week ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday that he expects to release a redacted version of the special counsel’s TrumpRussia investigation report “within a week’’ as he defended his handling of the document. Barr told members of Congress at his first public appearance since receiving special counsel Robert Mueller’s report that his earlier projection of releasing a version by mid-April still stood. The nearly 400page report is being scoured now to remove grand jury information and details relating to pending investigations. The redactions will be colour-coded and accompanied by notes explaining the decision to withhold information, he said. Democrats scolded Barr over his handling of the report, telling him they were concerned that a summary of its main conclusions he released last month portrayed the investigation’s findings in an overly favourable way for U.S. President Donald Trump. Rep. Nita Lowey, the Democratic chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, said she was taken aback that Barr had reduced Mueller’s report to a four-page letter in just two days. That letter said that Mueller did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russia and Trump associates, and that Barr did not believe the evidence in the report was sufficient to prove the president had obstructed justice.

BRIEFS

May makes new EU plea for Brexit delay BRUSSELS — With nearly everyone fully resigned to Britain’s departure from the European Union, two questions took centre stage Tuesday: How — and when — to get the U.K. politely out the door. EU leaders will confront British Prime Minister Theresa May for the second time in three weeks on her government’s delayed plans at an emergency Brexit summit on Wednesday, and such gatherings aren’t getting any friendlier. The bloc’s leaders have tried to help May over the past two years of negotiations, and even after she missed her hand-picked Brexit date of departure on March 29 because of a parliamentary revolt. So EU countries, especially France, have become increasingly exasperated with the political division and uncertainty in Britain about a way forward. On a charm offensive with key leaders, May first flew to Berlin Tuesday to plead for good terms with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and then set off for Paris for an encounter with President Emmanuel Macron, seen as her counterpart with the toughest demands.

Trudeau violated MPs’ rights, broke law with firings, Philpott says

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Russia’s foreign minister says military deployments in the Arctic are intended to protect national interests. Speaking Tuesday at the Arctic forum in St. Petersburg, Sergey Lavrov said that “we ensure the necessary defence capability in view of the militarypolitical situation near our borders.’’ He charged that a recent NATO exercise in Norway was openly directed against Russia. Russia, the United States, Canada, Denmark and Norway have all been trying to assert jurisdiction over parts of the Arctic as shrinking polar ice creates new opportunities for resource exploration and new shipping lanes. The Russian military has revamped and modernized a string of Soviet-era military bases across the polar region, looking to protect its hold on the region believed to hold up to one-quarter of the Earth’s undiscovered oil and gas.

Kenney not afraid to close taps CANADIAN PRESS

This rendering is of a proposed performing-arts centre at Seymour Street and Fourth Avenue downtown. With the need for conference space established, Tourism Kamloops CEO Beverley DeSantis is pitching the idea of a dual-purpose facility.

A convention and performing-arts centre? TOURISM KAMLOOPS CEO SAYS CITY IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF MORE CONFERENCE SPACE JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Tourism Kamloops CEO Beverley DeSantis is pushing the idea of a civic centre with a performing-arts centre. DeSantis arrived in Kamloops after the defeated arts centre referendum in 2015 and said she heard from residents who could not picture themselves participating in the arts. “You know, ‘We don’t go to the arts, we don’t participate, so this building we’re going to be paying for it and I’m not going to be using it,’” DeSantis said of the comments she heard. “By incorporating some sort of civic centre space, you can now start picturing your children’s graduation in there, maybe weddings, hockey banquets, sporting events. “These sorts of things the whole community can see themselves in that building, even if you’re not a fan of the arts. That space, a multipurpose space, can be used by our entire community.” DeSantis said the city is in “desperate need” of larger conference facilities and is turning away events due to insufficient space. Conferences are currently held at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre in Aberdeen and Sandman Centre downtown.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Is it time for Kamloops to have a convention and arts centre? Send your thoughts in a letter to the editor, via email to kamloopsthisweek.com

DeSantis said the Coast has insufficient capacity and Sandman Centre is a sports facility. She said space is needed to host between 700 and 800 people. One such event Tourism Kamloops had to turn down last fall was an annual comic-constyle trade show. “We’ve turned down, probably in the last year, 22 conferences, bidding on conferences, that we know of,” DeSantis said, noting such events instead head to Penticton or Kelowna. “The economic impact is over $20 million to the city.” DeSantis said a solid business case could be built around a multi-use facility, which could share the same roof, walls and floors with performing-arts space, as a more cost-effective option for Kamloops residents. The concept fits well with a recent push by Tourism Kamloops to build out its shoulder sea-

25th Annual PROGRESS

sonfrom October to April. DeSantis said conferences and conventions fit in that timeline. Business travellers tend to spend more while on the company dime, with Tourism Kamloops estimating they bring in $170 per person per day. However, DeSantis added, conference and convention travellers bring in four times that amount because the city is entertaining them full-time, with speakers, events and catering. Additionally, an influx of business travellers would increase traffic at Kamloops Airport. “I think it is a basic solution and huge opportunity,” DeSantis said. “One will help the other sustain each other.” DeSantis said conference space is usually wide-open flexible space that includes removable walls, roll-up carpet and breakout rooms. She has met with the Fawcetts — proponents behind the proposed performing-arts centre at Seymour Street and Fourth Avenue downtown — city councillors and local Rotary clubs on the issue. Conference space is not currently included in the proposal for a performing-arts centre, which was presented to city council earlier this year. “I’ve heard people say this really makes a lot of sense and it would help sustain both objectives,” DeSantis said.

United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney said if he becomes Alberta’s next premier, he will bring in a law to turn off the oil taps to British Columbia — and he added he wouldn’t be afraid to use it. In a speech to supporters in Medicine Hat on Monday, Kenney said the NDP brought in legislation after pressure from the United Conservatives, but never proclaimed it or used it. Kenney said he would proclaim the law in his first day on the job if his party were to be elected on April 16. He said he would make it clear that Alberta would be prepared to scale back exports of its crude to B.C. refineries if the John Horgan NDP government continues to obstruct the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Kenney noted gasoline prices have hit an all-time high of $1.67 per litre in B.C. and predicted they would remain high if Alberta were to turn off the taps. Earlier on Monday, NDP Leader and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said she’s confident the pipeline expansion will be approved by the federal government by the end of May. The federal government, which owns the pipeline, is expected to read a decision on May 22.

City to hand out Exemplary Service Awards SEVEN RESIDENTS TO BE HONOURED, WHILE TWO MORE TO RECEIVE FREEDOM OF THE CITY AWARDS Kamloops council will be honouring seven citizens with the City of Kamloops Exemplary Service Award during a Wednesday night ceremony. The award formally acknowledges individuals who have dedicated their time and service in an effort to make a difference in our community. The recipients are: • Tyson Andrykew (under 29 category): Andrykew is executive general manager of the Signature Sandman Hotel. He has volunteered in the community for more than 10 years. A founding member of BrewLoops, Andrykew has helped develop it into a flagship event with positive impacts on the local economy and craft beer scene. Andrykew is also a Rotarian and sits on the boards of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, Kamloops Accommodation Association and Tourism Kamloops. As food and beverage director for the Kamloops 2018 BC Winter Games, Andrykew was instrumental in co-ordinating 25,000 meals over four days for the athletes. • Penny Douglas: Douglas has been making an impact in Kamloops for more than four decades throughout her career as a physiotherapist. Her extensive involvement as a volunteer spans the sporting community and local service clubs. For

17 years, Douglas held various roles with the Tod Mountain Ski Racing Club/Sun Peaks Alpine Club and she also volunteered at the 1979 BC Winter Games and 1993 Canada Summer Games. Since 2003, Douglas has been a member of the Kamloops and District Elizabeth Fry Society, which is part of her passionate support for marginalized groups. At Elizabeth Fry, Douglas has held posts as secretary and president and she sits on numerous committees. • Lisa Fuller: Fuller is a dedicated volunteer and is active on multiple boards and committees. She participates in Rotary functions and is involved with several professional associations in her career in human resources. Through Kamloops Daybreak Rotary, Fuller volunteers on the organizing committee for Ribfest, which is a flagship community event. Another of Fuller’s passions is working with the Kamloops and District SPCA, where she has taken a leadership role in its campaign to construct a new community animal centre, which opened last weekend. Fuller has been on the boards of the Kamloops Art Gallery and Big Brothers and Big Sisters and sits on the United Way

Women’s Leadership Council. • Cheryl Kabloona: Kabloona is best known for her efforts in the area of energy, sustainability and climate, as she brings her skills as a certified project management professional to her volunteer roles. Kabloona joined the Kamloops chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association in 2006 and has chaired the group since 2010. She participated in important community-wide processes over the years, providing input into the Sustainable Kamloops Plan, the Official Community Plan, the Transit Future Plan, the Kamloops Bicycle and Pedestrian Master plans, the Airshed Plan and the Corporate Energy Plan. Kabloona has also advanced her contributions at the provincial level, serving as treasurer of the BC Sustainable Energy Association for several years. • Lisa Lake: Lake has lived and volunteered in Kamloops for more than 20 years and supports many organizations. She has been involved in many fundraising and mentorship campaigns at TRU, where she has worked since 1998. Lake is extensively involved with Developing World Connections

(DWC), where she has contributed to overseas projects in Cambodia, Guatemala and Nepal. She also serves on the board of DWC. Lake is president of the Kamloops Daybreak Rotary Club and dedicates time to help out at many local Rotary events. She is also on the board of the Kamloops Food Bank and has been involved with the United Way, the RIH Foundation, Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, Boogie the Bridge and the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA. • Kirstin McLaughlin: McLaughlin’s impact on the Kamloops community is unique. As an advocate for the LGBTQ2S+ community, McLaughlin became the first Kamloops Pride president in 2016, a position she held for two years, during which she led the organization through the first and second annual downtown Pride parades. During the Kamloops 2018 BC Winter Games, she served as that organization’s first inclusivity chair, developing protocol, procedures and language that welcomed all Games participants. McLaughlin, a nurse by trade, was the lead nurse for Canada’s first Naloxone Take Home (THN) Program, which was developed in

2012 in response to the opioid crisis. There are now almost 1,500 THN sites in B.C. • Andrew Yarmie: Yarmie is a retired history professor and a strong proponent for all things heritage. He has been committed to enhancing the community as a volunteer and heritage advocate for more than 40 years. For 22 of those years, he has been involved with the Kamloops Heritage Commission and has been its chair since 2011. Yarmie was instrumental in the Heritage Recognition Plaque Initiative, which has recognized in excess of 100 properties, as well as individuals and businesses that promote heritage. Yarmie has also been a director of the Kamloops Museum Association, been involved with Kamloops History projects and worked in partnership with Communities in Bloom and the Downtown and North Shore Business Improvements associations on cultural heritage tours. In addition to the Exemplary Service Awards, the city on Wednesday night will honour the 2019 Freedom of the City recipients — longtime broadcaster Doug Collins and venerable civic politician Patricia Wallace.

Enhancements to Canada Pension Plan Since its introduction in 1965, Canada Pension Plan (CPP) has been a mandatory savings program with contributions shared between employees and employers (self-employed individuals pay both). It was originally designed to replace 25% of an individual's pensionable earnings. Funds are managed by the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), which, according to their website, is among the 10 largest in the world. Back in June 2016, the Federal and Provincial Finance Ministers reached an agreement to enhance the Canada Pension Plan. Those changes begin taking effect this year. For those who are already retired and collecting CPP, these changes largely will not affect you. Why the change? Overall, studies have shown that Canadians are savings less for their retirement. There are also fewer pensions being offered in todays' workplace. Statistics Canada showed that only 37.5% of Canadian workers were covered by a pension plan in 2016 compared to 46% in 1977.

What are the changes? 1. The main enhancement increases retirement benefit from 25% up to 33%. The current maximum annual benefit is approximately $13,110 and would be increased to nearly $20,000. 2.

3.

The upper limit for earnings will also be increased by 14% and introduces a concept referred to as the Yearly Additional Maximum Pensionable Earnings (or YAMPE). This amount is projected to be around $82,700 by the year 2025. To fund the enhanced benefits, employee and employer contributions will gradually increase over seven years, starting this year. Full implementation is expected to by 2025.

The phase-in period is intended to make it easier for employees, employers and self-employed individuals to adjust to the increased contribution amounts. For example, an individual with earnings of $54,900 will contribute approximately an additional $6 per month in 2019. By the end of the phase-in period, this will increase to roughly $43 per month. Each year of contributing to the enhanced CPP will allow Canadians to accumulate partial additional benefits. This also applies to the CPP post-retirement benefit where an individual is collecting CPP while continuing to work and contribute to CPP.

The table below outlines the two phases and changes to the CPP: Earnings at or below Yearly Maximum Pensionable Earnings (YMPE) of $57,400 for 2019

Earnings above YMPE up to YAMPE estimated to be $82,700 in 2025

Phase 1 2019-2023

Contributions per individual gradually increase from 4.95% to 5.95% by 2023

Contributions per individual gradually increase from 4.95% to 5.95% by 2023

Phase 2 2024 + beyond

Contributions maintained at new amount of 5.95%

Additional 4.0% contributions required on earnings above YMPE to ceiling of YAMPE

Note: Contributions based on pensionable earnings above the Year's Basic Exemption (YBE), currently $3,500. The amounts in the table above would double for self-employed individuals contributing to CPP. The calculations are complex to say the least, but overall this should be seen as a positive for Canadians.

LIONS ROARING TOWARD NATIONALS MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

L

indsey ChristianHack is a violinist and a boxer, an odd combination. The 20-year-old sweet scientist from Tappen and 32-year-old Kamloops resident Kali Gawley — a mother, dance teacher and fighter — form a vicious one-two punch from Lions Roar Boxing Club, thunder and lightning setting course for Vancouver Island. Both fighters have cracked the Boxing B.C. team heading to Victoria for the national championships, which will run from April 23 to April 27 at Bear Mountain Resort. The Boxing Canada tournament, the Super Channel Championships, will gather the country’s best amateur fighters, each aiming for gold medals that could open up national-team opportunities for events such as the Commonwealth Games, Pan Am Games, world championships and Olympics. “This is a big deal,” said Barry Adkins, head instructor at Lions Roar, a division of White Crane Martial Arts. “If you win, you’re in Boxing Canada’s view. If they like what they see, they’ll ask you to join the Canadian team and off you go. “Both of them have unusual dedication. Everybody they fight, they all have skills, but these two like winning — and they don’t like losing.” Each fighter will have to dispatch two opponents to reach the final in B.C.’s capital city. Gawley is the thunder. The 5-foot-5 power puncher, who Adkins deems the hardesthitting woman in the nation in the 152-pound division, is an inside fighter with fast hands, a Mike Tyson-style mercenary. She spoke to KTW a few minutes before a training session began inside the no-frills Lions Roar gym, which could be described as a dungeon if not for

its location upstairs in a used auto parts warehouse in the Mount Paul Industrial Park. It smelled like sweat and reeked of hard work. “We live once. I’m a pusher,” Gawley said. “I own dance studios. I was an exceptionally good dancer. I was 27 [when I started boxing]. I already had two kids. It was instant weight loss. I got into insane shape and everyone is going, ‘What’s your secret?’ “The secret is I’m at the gym training, running at lunch time, then running again in the evening, meal prepping and eating insanely healthy and not getting distracted. “It’s almost a hunger in your brain to want to be driven as a human being to push your potential.” Gawley, a late starter who has 20 fights under her belt, has more experience than Christian-Hack and has been to nationals twice, her best finish coming in 2016,

when she lost in the final to Sara Kali of Montreal in the 141-pound division. Sara Kali won bronze at the world championships that year. “I love my job, I love my kids and to go there [nationals] is about pure fun, but I would love to take it [the Canadian title] and get some international experience,” said Gawley, who would consider turning pro if the opportunity presented itself. Christian-Hack, the lightning, emerged from behind a punching bag, revealing a few of her greatest attributes — a 5-foot-11 frame and lengthy arms. Height and reach are advantages, but her greatest characteristic might be diligence, the same doggedness that has the violinist a couple of music-theory tests shy of earning Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto certification.

Boxers aiming to add to club lore From A23

“Honestly, I feel like the violin has helped,” ChristianHack said. “It takes tonnes of dedication and tonnes of hours and immense focus to learn the violin. It’s helped me apply that type of focus and dedication to this sport, as well.” “The similarities between the two are incredible.” The fiddling pugilist — known to busk at the Kamloops Farmers’ Market — has a long martial-arts history (she had two black belts in karate by age 14), but began boxing-specific training only three years ago. Unlike Gawley, she aims to stay outside of opponents and capitalize on mistakes with swift footwork and long punches. The key to her quick rise inside the ropes may sound familiar. “Tonnes of conditioning, running — a lot of running — a lot of technical work, footwork, pads, sparring, bags … I work out at least six days a week,” said Christian-Hack, inexperienced in a boxing ring, with only five fights to her name. Street shoes scatter across White Crane’s dingy entrance

area and provide welcoming odour, a prelude to the march upstairs, where the scent of perspiration awaits. Don’t rush up to the dungeon, though. Take a minute to examine newspaper clippings on the wall. Among them is an article about Tom LaRoche winning a world kickboxing title on July 12,1984, in front of a packed crowd at Memorial Arena. Mark Hermiston cracked local sports pages when he won that same world kickboxing championship a few years later, the victory coming during another momentous fight night inside the old barn on Victoria Street. Both White Crane products were trained by Adkins, who has returned to fighters’ corners after taking a lengthy leave of absence to raise a family. “The good thing I like about Barry is that he cared about the fighters,” said LaRoche, who runs LaRoche World Gung Fu and Kickboxing on the North Shore. “It wasn’t about looking for fame for himself. He wouldn’t give you easy fights. He always stretched me, but I knew he wouldn’t put

me in over my head.” This new White Crane incarnation, Adkins’ Lions Roar boxing stable, has potential, he said, with a group of about 16 competitive, up-and-coming fighters aiming to find a place on the wall. Christian-Hack and Gawley would love to become lobby reading material. Three wins in Victoria might do the trick. IN THEIR CORNER Barry Adkins’ son, Bryan, was selected by Boxing B.C. to help coach the team of about 60 fighters going to nationals. The 25-year-old Sa-Hali secondary graduate has boxing aspirations of his own, but has also been coaching for three years. “It’s a really good opportunity for a young guy like me to be in front of some of the best coaches in B.C. and get the experience at nationals and to see the top competitors in Canada,” Bryan said. “It’s an honour because it came as a bit of a surprise. I’m probably the youngest coach on the staff.” Barry will also make the trip to nationals.

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Bryan Adkins will help coach the Boxing B.C. team at the Boxing Canada nationals, which will run from April 23 to April 27 at Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria.

Golf board member Helen Steeves introduced Larson at the AGM and raved about his contributions to the game, highlighting work with juniors and countless tournament organizing committees, both at the Zone 2 and provincial levels. Larson was B.C. Golf’s vicepresident in 2010 and 2011 and his rise through the association’s ranks peaked when he became president for 2012 and 2013. He also served on Golf Canada’s provincial council for four years. Larson dedicated much of his speech to thanking those who helped him along the way, including Sharon. “If not for my wife Sharon, I would not be here today,” he said.

Dalke, Gilbert earn Team Canada nod MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Two Kamloops Classic Swimming club products will race for Canada at the International University Sports Federation Summer Universiade, which will be held in Naples, Italy, from July 3 to July 14. Megan Dalke and Colin Gilbert were selected after competing at the Canadian Swimming Trials, which wrapped up on Sunday in Toronto. “With it being my first international team, it’s exciting making the jump from provincial swimming, when I was younger, to senior national level,” said Dalke, a 20-yearold Kamloops product. Gilbert, who swims for the NCAA Division 1 Denver Pioneers, won a silver medal in the 800-metre freestyle, placed fifth in the 400m freestyle and 10th in the 200m free. UBC Thunderbirds’ swimmer Dalke won the 400m individual medley consolation final and placed fourth in the 400m free consolation final.

ANSWERS TO CROSSWORD FOUND ON A29 COLIN GILBERT UBC ATHLETICS PHOTO Megan Dalke of the Kamloops Classics and UBC T-Birds will represent Canada this summer at the Summer Universiade in Italy.

Dalke’s selection to the Canadian team for the Summer Universiade was based on results from the U Sports Swimming Championships in Vancouver in February, when she won silver in the 400m free, 400m IM and 800m free relay and bronze in the 200m fly and 800m free. “I didn’t have necessarily the performances I wanted to [at national trials],” Dalke said. “The races at U Sports nationals is what got me onto the team.” Dalke and Gilbert were

aiming to crack Team Canada rosters for the Pan Am Games, which will run from July 26 to Aug. 11 in Lima, Peru, but both fell short. Classics’ head coach Brad Dalke, Megan’s father, said Gilbert was right in the mix, but sub-standard performances in the 400m freestyle and 200m freestyle were likely his downfall. Megan Dalke had an all-around off meet, according to her dad. Dalke is not sure which events she will enter at the Summer Universiade, but said possibilities include the 400m

freestyle, 400m IM, 200m fly and 800m freestyle. Gilbert, who could not be reached before KTW’s press time on Tuesday, may swim in the 200m free, 400m free, 800m free, 1,500m free and 4x200m free relay. Ryley McRae, a TRU WolfPack athlete, and Sarah Koopmans were also competing for the Classics at national trials on the weekend. McRae was fifth in the 1,500m free, seventh in the 800m free and seventh in the 400m free consolation final. Koopmans placed 27th in the 50m fly and 31st in the 100m fly in a Classics-record time of 1:02.96.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM In Loving Memory of

Barb (Barbara) Chapman (née Gill)

In loving memory of Barb (Barbara) Chapman (née Gill) who passed away on March 19, 2019 at the age of 88. Barb is survived by her three children Scott, Tracey and Ryan, her brothers Jack and David, her two grandsons Nolan and Nathan and eight nieces and nephews. Barb spent her early years on her family’s farm on the prairies of Manitoba. She moved with her family to White Rock later in childhood and graduated from Semiahmoo High School.

Wilma Edith (Willie) MacPherson (née Cairns)

When her children had moved out on their own, Barb began hosting foreign students who came to Kamloops to study at high school and university. She was ‘Canada Mom’ for several dozen students from Spain, Mexico, Japan, Korea, China and the Philippines.

July 14, 1933 to April 6, 2019

Peacefully with family.

Barb nurturing extended to the animal world and over the years she provided a wonderful home to innumerable dogs and cats and she enjoyed spoiling them all rotten.

Gramma Willie (a name she cherished) grew up on the farm in Richmond, BC then raised her kids in Kamloops. She nursed at Royal Inland for years and later worked for the City. She learned from what came through the doors in the hospital and tried to make some things better, both for her patients and the community at large. Too much drunken carnage led to her involvement with the Counter Attack program. She witnessed recovery as a nurse, but also carried the burden of young lives suffered and lost. In her memory, please don’t drive while distracted or impaired.

No memorial service is planned at this time.

She loved her time at the Shuswap, floating in the soothing waters as well, listening to Neil Diamond. Family and friends were kept close. She also spent several summers during her kid’s youth volunteering as camp nurse at Camp Grafton. She liked to cook, entertain and travel. Numerous photo albums prove she’s been there and seen a large part of the world. In later years, she was well cared for at Kamloops Seniors Village.

While Buck’s work with the CNR required moving the family to Jasper, Vancouver and Smithers, Barb always considered Kamloops her home and was happy to move back in 1980.

If any of Barb’s friends or family wishes to make a memorial gift, she would be delighted if it was to either your local branch of the BCSPCA or to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Predeceased by her parents, brother Bob, sister-in-law Kay and brother-in-law John. Survived by her loving sisters Betty (Bob) and Marg and children David (Cathy), Bill (Bev), Rob (Larissa), Leslie (Peter), Glen (Judy). In addition, grandchildren, nephews, nieces, extended family and friends.

Barb had a big generous heart, loved connecting with people and always saw the best in everyone. Her greatest delight in life was being a mother and then a grandmother.

Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

In lieu of flowers, a gift to Canadian Red Cross or Kamloops United Church – Camp Grafton would be appreciated.

Shortly after high school she met and married the love of her life Buck (Reed) Chapman. They enjoyed over 35 happy years together before his death in 1988.

The family would like to acknowledge the stellar staff at Brocklehurst Gemstone Care Centre. They provided a comfortable, caring and compassionate home for Barb for six years.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Rosemary “Rosie” Casimir Dearest family and friends, we regret we inform you that our beloved Rosemary “Rosie” Casimir passed away on Friday, March 22, 2019. Rosemary’s services were held on Tuesday, March 26, 2019. Rosemary worked at the Little Fawn Daycare until the doors were closed on her in December 2017. Rosemary dedicated her time and love to all the children and parents that walked through the doors for 37 years. Rosemary is predeceased by her mother Edna Howse, father Ronald “Joe” Lee, uncles Martin Howse and Dennis Lee, auntie Dorthey Howse, Chapon Mary Bruneau, nephew Jesse Tyler Seymour and granddaughter Lydia-Diane Casimir-Eneas.

Thomas Harvey Poulton

He will be lovingly remembered by his family; daughter Gaylene, sons Tom and Andrew and his cherished grandchildren Kayla, Joycelyn, Kaitlyn, Danielle, Devin and Alexander, and three great-grandchildren. Tom was predeceased by his son Paul. From a young age, Tom worked for the CNR Railway and loved to tell stories about his experiences. He had a passion for tennis and made it his business to make the club a success. He served as president for ten years. Through strong determination, he was instrumental in making indoor tennis in Kamloops a reality. His role as tournament director and league organizer was much appreciated. Tom was also an avid curler who enjoyed the skip position. He always looked forward to organizing and playing in bonspiels. Tom did not care much for growing vegetables, however his flowers were the envy of all.

Please donate to BC Cancer Society in her memory.

His many friends and acquaintances will miss his many stories and acts of kindness. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at the Kamloops Tennis Club, 758 Lorne Street, Kamloops. Donations may be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Kamloops Tennis Club.

Although deeply saddened with the loss of our loving mother Mafalda Podorieszach on April 7, 2019 at 87 years of age, she is finally at peace. She enjoyed many years of good health, with only a decline in health over the last two years. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late February, 2019. Mafalda is survived by her loving sons Primo (Eileen), Peter (Shelley), John, her six grandchildren Brandon (Andrea), Bryce (Maggie), Michelle, Aaron, Cara (David), Sarah and five great-grandchildren Keaton, Ethan, Nathanial, Cayden and Ava. She lived to see her grandchildren, then great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two brothers Pietro (Enerstina) and Alessandro, sister in-law Francis and numerous nieces and nephews. She was born in Italy, immigrated to Canada in 1955 and married her late husband Giuseppe Podorieszach (pre-deceased in 1999). She had many friends in Clearwater and Kamloops. We thank all the staff of the Ponderosa Lodge who cared for Mom in her final days. We especially thank Dr. Susan Vlahos for her empathy and care.
