Council endorses $10/day child care KAMLOOPS THE 56TH COMMUNITY, REGIONAL DISTRICT IN B.C. TO DO SO JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

GORDON GORE/KTW READER

OSCAR AND OPRAH ARE BACK ON STAGE

The ospreys returned recently to The Dunes in Kamloops and both look healthy. Dubbed Oscar and Oprah by Westsyde resident Gordon Gore, who documents their lives with his camera, Oprah decided against sharing her catch with the family and flew to a nearby pole to devour on her own.

Kamloops council has endorsed what the province says is one of the largest social policy shifts in B.C.’s history — $10-a-day child care. However, it is unclear when universal child care will be available to all B.C. residents, as promised by the NDP during the 2017 election campaign. “It’s going to take time, unfortunately,” said the program’s provincial spokesperson, Sharon Gregson, of Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC. Gregson was at city hall on Tuesday, requesting council’s support and detailing a 10-year plan, which is currently in its first year. “Because the crisis was allowed to get so bad, there’s only

enough child-care spaces in B.C. for about 20 per cent of children,” she said. “Early-childhood educators earn below a living wage and fees are sky high. That kind of thing doesn’t changed overnight.” Council unanimously agreed to draft a resolution in support of the proposed $10-aday plan. Kamloops is the 56th local/regional government to endorse the plan, in addition to more than 30 school districts. The plan envisions quality and affordable universal child care by moving child care out of the Ministry of Family and Child Development and into the Ministry of Education, capping child-care fees at $10 a day, purchasing modular buildings to place on public land across the province and improving early child-care

educator wages. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian said council’s support is consistent with its recent application for provincial funding to collect data on the state of child care locally. Anecdotally, he said, he has heard of a “considerable deficit” for child care in Kamloops. The city’s role won’t be made more clear until after that deficit is studied and fully understood. Funding, however, will come from the provincial and federal governments. “But I think, just as our role with affordable housing is concerned, we have to facilitate those kinds of things here that would be helpful,” he said, though noting to what capacity — such as land — is unclear.

Both sides like biosolids blockade ruling JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The proponent and opponents are happy with a BC Supreme Court decision this week that addresses a roadblock set up to block delivery of biosolids to a bison farm. Arrow Transportation has received an injunction after company trucks at English and Turtle Valley roads were blocked by protestors. Opponents of the plan to transport biosolids — treated sewage sludge — from the City of Kamloops’ sewage-treatment centre to the Turtle Valley ranch are using vehicles and a large hay bale to block access. Arrow has a contract with the City of Kamloops to deplete the city’s stockpile and manage in the short term its annual tonnage. “This decision was a good one for Arrow,” Arrow Environmental Services regional manager Jeff Mayer said. “The injunction was granted, the court ruled we did have all the proper paperwork and we met all the regulations and we were approved to proceed with the project.” However, the injunction does not come into effect until May 18. The lawyer representing the lone protester named in Arrow’s lawsuit, Connie Seaward, told

KTW the 10-day delay will provide those who oppose the project time to mount their own legal challenge. “It means they [biosolids protestors] will now have their opportunity to have their day in court and essentially turn the tables and advance their own application,” Daniel McNamee said. The two legal arguments against the project, which will see 23,000 tonnes of Kamloops’ stockpiled sewage sludge applied to more than 20 hectares of land at the Turtle Valley Bison Company near Chase, hinge on classification and potential drinking water risks. The project has been approved by the Ministry of Environment under the purview of land application, but McNamee said it should undergo the stringent requirements of a compost facility — which could require a permit and environmental assessment. But Mayer said opposition is confusing regulations. “This is not a composting facility,” he said. “We’re fabricating a soil that we’re going to apply to land.” The other legal argument hinges on the type of biosolids — known as Class B, based on the treatment level — and their prohibition from drinking water.

McNamee said overlooked is a groundwater aquifer beneath the Turtle Valley Bison Company that seeps into the Chase water supply. The Village of Chase gets most of its drinking water from the South Thompson River, but it takes up to 30 per cent annually from the ground, via the Chase Creek aquifer. McNamee said experts have not confirmed groundwater, but noted mapping and local wells suggest it exists. Mayer said the aquifer is adjacent to — not below — the project and deep into the ground. “There’s absolutely no way the biosolids could penetrate that deep into the soil,” Mayer said. Prior to the roadblock, Arrow had been trucking biosolids to the ranch and mixing them with native soils to create a soil mixture containing nine per cent biosolids, with plans to apply them to previously logged land for reclamation purposes. The company maintains it has no plans yet for this year’s biosolids tonnage, an additional 12,500 tonnes. Arrow went to court to fight the blockade, arguing it amounted to the criminal offences of intimidation and mischief. The city continues to work on a long-term plan for the city’s biosolids, with a report on options to go before council later this month.

Report clears Kamloops Mounties in fatal shooting TIM PETRUK

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

B.C.’s police watchdog has cleared Kamloops Mounties of any wrongdoing following a fatal shootout in Rose Hill last year that saw officers fire 45 shots at a man who opened fire on them. Eugene Ethan Marcano, 36, was killed after initiating a gunfight with police in a rural area on Rose Hill Road last fall, according to a report made public on Wednesday by the Independent Investigations Office, B.C.’s civilian police oversight agency. The officer who fired the fatal shot refused to speak with IIO investigators or share with them his notes. The report is based largely on an interview with another officer who was present, as well as physical evidence found at the scene and statements from civilian witnesses. According to the report, which does not name the deceased or the officers involved, the police interaction with Marcano began just before 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 18, 2018, after a caller reported a suspicious truck and trailer. Two police officers responded to the call in separate RCMP vehicles, the report states, and Marcano was immediately hostile. During the interaction, Marcano retreated “purposefully” into his trailer while threatening the officers. “‘You guys are in for it,’ something along the lines of that, and I do remember something like, ‘I’ll put you guys on the news’ or, ‘ ‘I’m going to be on the news,’” the witness officer told IIO investigators. Both Mounties drew their service pistols and backed away from the trailer. “Moments later, [the witness officer] saw the barrel of a firearm appear out of the trailer door,” the IIO report states. “He saw and heard it fire in his direction, and then again as he ‘stumbled’ back

behind the front passenger side of his vehicle.” Both officers returned fire. One of them retrieved a carbine from his police vehicle. According to the report, Marcano crouched and crawled through long grass with a shotgun pointed at the Mounties. The officer with the carbine began to return fire with the highpowered weapon. A carbine bullet struck Marcano near his left ear and passed through his head, killing him. IIO investigators combed the scene and located 31 spent casings from the officers’ service pistols, as well as 14 from the carbine. According to the report, Marcano fired 11 shots at the Mounties, five of them striking the police vehicles. “Both officers were entirely justified in returning gunfire in self-defence, and in defence of each other, when fired directly and repeatedly upon by [Marcano], and cannot be said to have used excessive force in doing so,” the report concludes. “The evidence demonstrates that [Marcano] initiated what turned out to be a shootout between himself and the two officers. The officers responded the only way they could: with gunfire. All but one of their rounds failed to hit [Marcano]. It was only when [the officer] was able to strike [Marcano] with a round from his carbine that the shooting ended.” A friend of Marcano’s told KTW he had overcome many obstacles in his life. “He was a very beautiful soul who is missed by so many people and will never be forgotten,” said the friend, who asked to remain anonymous. “He will never be forgotten.” Marcano, who lived in Kelowna, Alberta and on Vancouver Island, had a brief criminal history. In August 2006, he was among a group of people charged in

connection with a cocaine bust. During his arrest, a Mountie suffered a broken leg and underwent surgery. In May 2007, Marcano pleaded guilty to four charges — aggravated assault, drug trafficking, escaping lawful custody and driving while impaired — and was sentenced in Ganges Provincial Court on Saltspring Island to six months in prison. Court heard an undercover drug operation led to Marcano leading police on a short car chase, with Marcano under the influence of a gram of cocaine, three ecstasy tablets and several beers. Although officers placed Marcano under arrest and seated him uncuffed in the back seat of their cruiser, he pushed open the car door and struck the arresting officer in the face as he tried to escape. Marcano could not be subdued until an officer on the scene deployed a taser. The fracas left Const. Nick Widdershoven with a fractured fibia and dislocated tibia. He required two surgeries to install a plate and nine bolts in his leg, with court hearing minor nerve damage in his foot and lower leg will likely never be repaired. Marcano’s lawyer at the time, Tybring Hemphill, said Marcano was a low-level drug dealer who “became a victim of his own product.” Court heard Marcano, following his arrest, registered to complete his high school diploma and stopped using alcohol and drugs. Hemphill said Marcano’s advanced state of intoxication, combined with a “twisted and mistrustful view of authority,” led him to act out of character once police took him into custody. A memorial service for Marcano was held on Oct. 27, 2018. — with files from the Gulf Islands Driftwood

‘Child-care chaos’ in province From A1

Gregson said she has heard local “horror stories,” including parents unable to find infant care — KTW has been told of parents putting unborn children on waitlists — and kids taking taxis from school to the other side of town to get into a childcare program. Gregson further detailed what she called “child-care chaos” in B.C. The province has nearly 575,000 children up to the age of 12, two-thirds of whose mothers are working, but only 106,000 licensed child-care spaces. As a result, parents turn to an unregulated child-care sector, which Gregson said potentially puts kids at risk. Additionally, she said, available care is unaffordable. In

Kamloops, infant care can cost $1,000 per month, parents with kids ages three to five are paying $750 to $800 monthly and some places in B.C. see parents paying more than $2,000 per month. How did it get so bad? Gregson said policy has failed to keep up with changing family dynamics and child care has withered in the marketplace, with insufficient provincial and federal support. Meanwhile, a $10-a-day daycare pilot program is underway, including in Kamloops. Families at the Kamloops Child Development Centre in North Kamloops are paying $200 per month and has 117 kids included in the province’s prototype project. “It’s going very well,” Gregson said. “Families are ecstatic. It is described as life-changing.

“Families feel like they’ve won the lottery and they just wish that their friends and neighbours had the same kind of opportunity.” Asked what other families do in the meantime, Gregson said: “Women stay out of the workforce, they shortchange their own careers — and typically it is the women, the mothers who take the brunt of that decision — or families have no choice but to use unlicensed, unregulated care with sometimes tragic consequences. “I’m thinking about baby Mac, who died in an unlicensed, illegal childcare in east Vancouver not too long ago.” Asked how families can protect themselves, she recommended contacting politicians at all levels of government to “say this is not good enough.”

Where does the money go? Early-childhood educators continue to be underpaid, while parents are facing high costs of day care — so, where is the money going? “There are only so many children you can have to be licensed in a group size so that you can provide quality care,” Gregson said. “For example, if you’re caring for a group of infants, you children’s fees to colcan only have a maximum group size of 12. lect to pay those staff. “So, when you’re And yet, to care for running a high-quality 12 children well, you program, most of your need four or five staff. money is going into And so, the majority paying your staff of your budget go and it’s Day still not to paying staff, but Happywages Family enough to18, pay2019 them you’ve only got 12 February

there is gouging of parents with fees that are too high, gouging of kids with low quality or gouging of earlychildhood educators with low wages. The system has been left to wither in the marketplace.”

well. That’s why it needs the provincial government to step up and pay operating funds and pay enhancements. The truth is, even in the programs charging over $2,000 a month,

FAMILY DYNAMICS The nature of families has changed over the years, with more women in the workplace than previous generations. More than half of families in 1976 saw mom stay home and dad work. By 2014, that number dropped to less than one-quarter.

The New Democratic Party may acclaim its candidate in the KamloopsThompson-Cariboo riding for the Oct. 21 federal election. Local NDP riding association president Bill Sundhu said the party’s nomination meeting will be held on May 26, but noted only a single confirmed candidate has emerged. Gina Myhill-Jones, a community support worker from 100 Mile House, announced earlier this month that she is seeking the party’s nomination. The deadline for any other prospective candidates to submit an application to the federal party is this Friday, Sundhu told KTW. “We sent out the message last week that if anybody was going to do it, they better do it fast because the door was going to close,” he said. Sundhu said it’s possible one more contestant will emerge by the end of Friday, but added he does not know if that person has submitted an application or will meet the vetting requirements. The field of candidates running in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo remains very much unclear.

SMALL VICTORIES ALSO MATTER

S

ome days, it can seem like our lives present one challenge after another. It can be even more daunting for those of us dealing with depression and anxiety. But when we are faced with adversity, big or small, there are opportunities to win the day — especially this week. May 6 to May 12 is Mental Health Week and the Canadian Mental Health Association has launched a campaign called Celebrate Everyday Victories that encourages us to acknowledge and celebrate any positive steps toward mental wellness. For so many who experience mental illness, day-to-day tasks can feel burdensome — and it can be worse the more things pile up. The notion of celebrating everyday victories suggests that it’s OK to feel overwhelmed and it’s OK if mental wellness comes in fits and starts in the face of that challenge. For those of us fortunate enough to be in good mental health, we can join in recognizing the small victories of those we care about. Bev Gutray, the executive officer of the CMHA’s B.C. office, said recovery from depression or anxiety is a process, noting the Celebrate Everyday Victories campaign is all about feeling pride and accomplishment in one’s progress toward regaining one’s mental health. If we focus too much on the bigger goals from the offset, it’s easy to start feeling like we’ll never get there. That is why seemingly mundane daily achievements are so powerful and important. They motivate us to keep going and each win brings us closer to our eventual goal. We all seek something. Maybe we’re striving for big goals and won’t settle. Maybe we just want to feel OK. Maybe we want both. But we might not get there today, or any time soon, so if we don’t ever take a moment to think about the progress we’re making and the small victories we are achieving, then it seems like we would be missing out on something along the way. For more on the Celebrate Everyday Victories campaign, go online to mentalhealthweek.ca.

Mom’s the word

F

rom the moms who birthed you and me and the rest of us, to the wonder that was Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, from Ma Murray and her eponymous awards to Mom Boucher, who is today doing domestic duties behind bars, this weekend is all about the maternal ones. Be they Mommy Dearest in temperament or Mamma Mia in spirit, moms can intimidate or inspire. Mother’s Day as a commercial day to drive sales may rankle some, but commerce does make our world go round — and if this Sunday wasn’t designated Mother’s Day, it would be something else. Hallmark would still sell as many cards on Stepdads Under Restraining Order Day. We can take a stance against a day that has become a way to make money off saluting moms or we can embrace the sentiment behind the idea and honour our moms, past and present. Anna Jarvis created the day in 1908 to honour her mom, Ann, who once opined that a day should be set aside to allow mothers to rest. As with all good ideas that get corrupted by society, Jarvis became disillusioned with the commercialization of her precious day and later worked to have Mother’s Day abolished. Alas, Jarvis failed in that endeavour and was committed to a Pennsylvania psychiatric sanitarium in the 1940s, where,

MUSINGS ironically, her stay was paid for by representatives of the greeting card and florist industries, according to the book Memorializing Motherhood: Anna Jarvis and the Struggle for Control of Mother’s Day. (For perspective, that would be as zany as a mining company paying for a study commissioned by a city opposed to the mining company’s proposed mine.) Interestingly, the woman who invented Mother’s Day was herself born in 1864 in a state invented in 1863. West Virginia was created by cleaving off part of Virginia and admitted to the Union during the U.S. Civil War. So, on Sunday, you can remain mum about honouring mom or you can buy some mums for mom. If, however, your mom, like mine, is now a mummy, you can spend Sunday (or any day, for that matter), reflecting on all that your mom did for you to somehow manage to navigate life and wake up today,

relatively unscathed. My mom died on the first day of summer in 1999. Next month will be 20 years since her ascension to the Milky Way Bar — or descent to the Red Devil Saloon. As many can attest, it can seem like just yesterday or a millennium ago on any given day. I am one of six siblings and the reflections vary from brother to sister. What I have found is that it is comforting to have something personal to carry forward. My mom was bedridden with cancer. She was lucid, sitting up, reading and talking one Sunday. She asked me to get her a book the next time I visited. She wrote the name of the book and author on a scrap of paper and I left to go home. That night, she fell into a coma and died a week later. I have the last note she ever wrote and carry that scrap of paper to this day in my wallet. It feels good when I open my wallet and see it there. The tactile always triumphs. Regardless of your present or past relationship with the woman in whose womb you lived rent-free for nine months, it’s always a good idea to honour her, be it on Mother’s Day or any of the remaining 364 days of the year. After all, as Merle Haggard so sagely noted, regardless of the outcome that is you, Mama Tried. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR POWERS THAT BE

CITY LOGIC DOES NOT SMELL RIGHT Editor: Re: (Kamloops set to raise cost of bringing septic waste to city,’ May 8): How ironic that the City of Kamloops is concerned about other B.C. communities disposing of their septic material as a result of Kamloops’ low tipping fees. Yet the city is quite happy to transfer tonness of Kamloops’ biosolids to outlying communities — Turtle Valley this year, Knutsford in the past. This logic stinks. Anne Richardson Brigade Lake

Editor: I recently learned the Salvation Army Food food truck has been asked to move yet again because of it being in an inconvenient location. First, however, let’s talk about the last time the Sally Ann was asked to move its truck, which feeds the needy. It was not so long ago that the city, due to business pressure, moved the truck from a very unobtrusive site in a lane next to the former Kamloops Daily News property. The Salvation Army has been serving the poor and homeless in Kamloops for 100 years. Let’s not for-

get the organization was there for the long haul during the 2017 wildfire crisis, serving thousands of displaced homeless residents. So why is it that when it comes to a simple, twice per week, one hour a day (6 p.m. to 7 p.m.), after business hours food truck service, a compassionate, Christian gesture is so hard for the city and the business community to stomach? Is it because the sight of people lined up outside a food truck is so disgusting to see? I see our citizens lining up outside commercial food trucks directly on our streets and sidewalks and those folks and trucks

don’t get pushed aside. The answer is simple — people pay for their food from commercial food trucks because it’s business. The Salvation Army is also in business — the business of providing free food and support to those in need. The Sally Ann also serves seniors with mobility issues who cannot make the trek to the new North Shore location. I wonder how the North Shore business community feels about that? I would like to know from Kamloops council whether it was aware of this move. Did council sup-

port it? If yes, why? I’m neither a Christian, nor a spiritualist. I’m an atheist speaking up for human rights, the right for the poor, seniors and homeless to be food- and housing-secure. I call out to Christians and other religious groups to stand up for and with those struggling to make ends meet in our city, As the Bible says, “The last shall be first.” Let’s all get in line and support a downtown location for the Salvation Army food truck.

Stone seeking to outlaw vaping among teens MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops MLA hopes his bid to curb vaping among youth will include help from the NDP. Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone introduced a private member’s bill in the legislature in early April, calling for three amendments to B.C.’s laws surrounding e-cigarettes to keep them out of the hands of young people. The bill would see a ban on the sale of flavoured nicotine juices, which has made vaping appealing to youth, Stone said. It would also restrict the sale of vaping products to adult-only tobacco stores and pharmacies and impose stiffer penalties for non-compliance with regulations. Stone also called on the government to dole out more funding in order to implement vapingprevention programs in all middle schools and high schools. The fate of Stone’s bill lies in the hands of the B.C. NDP as only the government can call a private member’s bill for second reading and debate. “Whether or not they do that,

Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone has introduced a private member’s bill aimed at keeping vape products out of the hands of B.C.’s youth.

I don’t know. But I am heartened by the fact that Health Minister Adrian Dix has reached out to me,” Stone said. “We have had several good conversations since I introduced the bill and I’m led to believe the government is committed to working with me and my Opposition colleagues to bring about the kind of changes that are proposed in my bill.”

Whether that’s done through his bill, the government’s own bill or other regulatory changes are details the health minister is now working through, Stone said. It’s not common for private member’s bills to be called for debate, but Stone said vaping is an issue that appears to have unanimous support as all 87 MLAs supported the bill’s first reading. “I think there will be action on

this file at some point this year,” Stone said, noting he received positive reactions from both sides of the legislature’s aisle regarding his bill. Stone said he introduced the bill because, as the father of three high school-aged girls, he has seen a rapid rise in vaping among teens, along with statistics suggesting its use is prevalent among youths. “I’ve heard from countless parents, lots of teachers and administrators, who are very concerned about what has been deemed by health professionals as a very concerning trend in our schools and potential health epidemic for our youth,” he said. Data from a recent Health Canada survey showed 23 per cent of students in grades 7 to12 have tried vaping — the act of inhaling and exhaling an aerosol produced by an electronic cigarette that heats a liquid, often flavoured and containing nicotine. According to the federal agency, vaping nicotine can alter a teen’s brain development, increase exposure to harmful chemicals and lead to nicotine addiction. The long-term health impacts of vaping on youth are unknown.

Vaping seems to have become a popular activity among Kamloops high school students, with multiple principals having noticed a rise in usage this school year. Stone said he is confident eliminating flavoured vape juices would diminish the attractiveness of vaping to youth. At the moment, he said, vaping products can be purchased “virtually anywhere,” but Stone believes restricting access will also help curb appeal. Like cigarettes, it’s illegal in B.C. to sell vaping products to those under the age of 19. In addition, they cannot be sold in hospitals, schools, government facilities, public libraries or public sports facilities. Penalties for breaching B.C.’s Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act can range from $345 to $575 and Stone said his bill would see a retailer lose the right to sell vaping products altogether upon a third offence. Imposing stricter controls on online sales of vaping products wouldn’t fall under provincial purview, but Stone said it is an area he understands the government is looking at addressing.

$5 billion laundered through real estate in B.C. last year

KAMLOOPS CORPORATE CHALLENGE RIVERSIDE PARK

DIRK MEISSNER

VICTORIA — An independent report has found that $5 billion was laundered through British Columbia’s real estate market last year and increased the cost of buying a home by five per cent. The report by former B.C. deputy attorney general Maureen Maloney estimated that $7.4 billion overall was laundered in B.C. in 2018, a figure she says is conservative and added the total amount across Canada was about $47 billion. Attorney General David Eby told a news conference on Thursday that money laundering is a “malignant cancer’’ on society and a “nationallevel crisis.’’ The provincial government commissioned two reports last September to shed light on money laundering by organized crime in the province’s expensive real estate market. Former deputy RCMP commissioner Peter German says in his report that the infusion of illicit money into the B.C. economy led to a frenzy of buying that raised the assessed values of homes throughout much of Metro Vancouver. German’s report says there are thousands of specific properties worth billions at high risk for potential money laundering. An international anti-money laundering agency said last year that organized criminals were laundering about $1 billion annually in the province. But Maloney’s report details far more cash was filtered. “As a conservative estimate, we’re looking at money laundering on the scale of $7.4 billion in 2018. That’s just for B.C., let alone the rest of Canada,’’ she said. Eby said wealthy criminals and those trying to evade taxes have run out of the province for too long, to the point they’re distorting the economy, hurting families looking for housing and impacting those who have lost loved once because of the opioid overdose crisis. “I am under no illusions that the problems we face are unique to B.C.,’’ said Eby. Federal Organized Crime Reduction Minister Bill Blair said earlier that he and Eby have met several times this year and are working together to fight money laundering. The reviews aimed to shed light on money laundering by organized crime in real estate after last June’s report on dirty money in casinos by German.

Authored report on money laundering in B.C. real estate

Following the gaming report, German was appointed to conduct a second review to focus on identifying the scale and scope of illicit activity in the real estate market. Eby said earlier this week he was shocked to hear some criminals laundering money through B.C.’s luxury car sector are getting provincial sales tax rebates. The attorney general said the government will move to plug tax loopholes to prevent the vehicle tax rebate that cost the province almost $85-million dollars since 2013. B.C. also tabled legislation aimed at preventing tax evasion and money laundering by shining a spotlight on anonymous real estate owners hiding behind shell and numbered companies. Several regulatory and professional agencies anticipated the findings of the reports and put antimoney-laundering policies in place last month. The B.C. Real Estate Council said it would be partnering with the federal Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada, or FINTRAC, to identify and deter money laundering and terrorist financing in the industry. The B.C. Real Estate Association, the body that serves 23,000 realtors in B.C., said in April that it would join with four other agencies to keep the proceeds of crime out of real estate. The other participating organizations include the Appraisal Institute of Canada, BC Notaries Association, Canada Mortgage Brokers Association and the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. Each organization has committed to sharing information, accepting only verified funds and making antimoney laundering education mandatory for its agents.

considered carefully. Association director Tim Rodgers, who manages the Best Western Plus hotel on Columbia Street, told KTW the city’s 53 local hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts face challenges in eliminating single-use items. “We want to make sure when they’re [the city] looking at this review, they’re looking at all the different challenges different industries have,” Rodgers said. Items that specifically pose challenges to the local accommodations industry include cutlery, drycleaning bags and bottled water. Replacing cutlery with real cutlery poses risk of theft and Rodgers said many hotels do not have dishwashers to properly clean them. He is not fully aware of alternative drycleaning bag options and explained one brand stan-

dard is to provide certain guests with bottled water. He said international guests unfamiliar with the city’s water expect that service. “That’s a brand standard, so if you cannot do that, the brand will not allow you to stay in the brand,” he said. Rodgers also echoed a call from the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce for a phase-in period, noting companies often purchase supplies on an annual basis. Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps has called on Kamloops to replicate its bylaw banning single-use plastic bags, which includes some exceptions, such as drycleaning bags. The city’s civic operations committee will be in touch with the Kamloops Accommodation Association when it reviews commercial recycling.

The Kamloops Accommodation Association wants a seat at the table when the city reviews single-use plastics. The association drafted a letter to the city, which was recently received by the city’s civic operations committee. That committee has been tasked by city council to review single-use plastic items, following debate on banning businesses from using single-use plastic bags. In its letter to the city, the association acknowledged climate change and unnecessary waste as “very real threats” to environmental and economic well-being, but cautioned that widespread changes need to be

Insight eyes move to McGill and triple the space JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Insight Support Services is planning to triple its space in light of a 140-family waitlist seeking supports for kids with neurological, cognitive and developmental disabilities. “We need more space,” Insight director Julie Chambers told KTW. “Our program is growing all the time and we’re running out of space.” The plan is to move from 624 Tranquille Rd. in North Kamloops to the McGill Road Industrial Park this summer, in time for July 1 programming. Property at 929 McGill Rd. is awaiting a sitespecific rezoning amendment by the city to allow counselling and education use. The city’s long-term plan for that area is residential and commercial use. Council

has decided to send the matter to a public hearing. Chambers said families on Insight’s waitlist are looking for support services through the alternate-education program or outreach services and therapies for kids. Insight partners with the KamloopsThompson school district in an education program and does contract work for the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Chambers said there are challenges around inclusion in the school district — having enough support in traditional classrooms — as families move to the area as a result of community supports. She said more space will help alleviate stress on families. “When I talk to families about the difference of having the supports that we can

offer, they literally say quality of life and functioning are impacted directly,” Chambers

said. “Improvement in quality of life and the overall family quality of life because the stress

levels are coming down and they’re not in it alone anymore.” The new location

Kamloops city council signed, sealed and delivered its budget this week, approving a bylaw that officially wraps up a lengthy process at city hall and sets tax rates for residents, businesses and industry. The final property tax hike is 2.96 per cent, resulting in an increase of $62 to the average household. Council has decreased slightly major industry’s rates at a cost of about $4 to the average household. Residents will pay $4.98 per $1,000 of assessed value; businesses will pay $13.57; major industry will pay $71.81; light industry will pay $20.39; nonprofits will pay $14.52 and farms will pay $13.65. In addition to the city’s portion of taxes, the Thomspon-Nicola Regional District and hospital district collect taxes. Residents, non-profits and farms will pay to the TNRD and hospital district an additional 77 cents per $1,000 of assessed value; businesses will pay an extra $1.89; major and light industry will pay $2.62. Council voted unanimously in favour of the tax hike, in addition to its five-year financial plan.

Emergency Management BC was at city hall on Tuesday, sharing with the city — and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District and Tk’emlups te Secwepemc — a Premier’s Award EMBC received in the central region for organizational excellence. EMBC regional manager Kayla Pepper praised the city’s partnership in emergency management. “We applaud city staff for their flood-

mitigation efforts and we commend [Kamloops Fire Rescue] chief [Mike] Adams and his team, as well, for recent and very successful fire smart investments and initiatives that have been going underway in the city,” Pepper said. EMBC wanted to honour the city in part for stepping forward in 2017, when Kamloops welcomed more than 10,000 evacuees fleeing wildfires across the Interior. Kamloops has been designated as a supply chain hub for the province in the event of catastrophic events. “The City of Kamloops always gets

caught doing the right thing,” EMBC senior regional manager Peter Prendergast said. EMBC received the Premier’s Award last year in Victoria. Coun. Arjun Singh was acting mayor during the fires in 2017 and said Kamloops hosted the province in a way the city can always be proud of, from multi-level government collaboration to the volunteers and staff. “I have lots of confidence in the ability of all of us to do this work going forward. It’s going to be very, very challenging work, there’s no doubt about that,” Singh said.

On Wednesday, Washington state became the first jurisdiction on the West Coast to abolish time change — pending approval by Congress in Washington, D.C. Similar legislation is moving through the Oregon and California legislatures, with time change expected to be eliminated in those states some time this year. Washington, Oregon and California are opting to stay on daylight time, which will mean longer mornings of darkness and more light in the evenings during winter. After Washington Gov. Jay Inslee signed the legislation, KTW asked the premier’s office where the province stands on the issue, which has been championed in B.C. by Kamloops residents Bob Dieno and Tara Holmes, KTW’s promotions manager. Premier John Horgan’s office replied with a statement: “It is our understanding that there are still some significant hurdles at the federal level before a change might happen there. “Premier Horgan has been in touch with the governors of the Pacific Coast states and with the Yukon premier, asking them to keep us informed on this issue, as a change in any of these jurisdictions in our time zone would have significant impacts on British Columbia. “It makes sense to move in unison on this matter if a change were to be made.”

Excellence in ethics for TRU student team KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Five Thompson Rivers University students put their sense of ethics to the test and came out on top at the 2019 CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) Societies Canada Ethics Challenge. The TRU team — Cynthia Chinyereude, Palak Dhingra, Jonelle Joseph, MD Safiul Bari Shawn and Ashish Wadhwa — beat out 26 other groups to take home first place in the third annual competition. Participants were tasked with analyzing case studies and identifying ethical dilemmas as per the CFA’s code of ethics and standards. Finalists from six Canadian universities were announced at the beginning of March, preceding the final challenge of the competition in Calgary on May 1. TRU earned its title by providing the best analysis of a new case study, within three hours, to a judging panel of CFA charter holders, who then led a question-and-answer session. “Through this experience, my teammates and I now have a much

stronger understanding of how to identify ethical grey areas,” TRU team member Shawn said. “Obviously, we’re thrilled to walk away with a win, but the experience overall allowed us and our competitors to gain clearer insight into what we can expect in our futures. It also gave us the opportunity to speak with seasoned professionals.” As part of their winnings, each member of the TRU team took home $500 and a commemorative award from CFA Societies Canada. David Smith, chair of the CFA Societies Canada, said the goal of the ethics challenge is to introduce a commitment to their code of ethics to future finance professionals and show students how to identify and dissect complex challenges they will potentially encounter in the years ahead. The competition is open to postsecondary students across Canada. CFA Societies Canada is a collaboration of CFA Institute and the 12 Canadian member societies, which advocate for the highest standards of integrity and ethics to the benefit of Canadian investors.

Chinese court holds appeal hearing for B.C. man sentenced to death ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIJING — A Chinese court held an appeal hearing Thursday for a Canadian who was sentenced to death for drug smuggling in a case that has deepened a diplomatic rift between the two countries. The intermediate-level court in northeastern Liaoning province said Robert Schellenberg’s sentence would be announced at an unspecified date. Convicted of playing a central role in a methamphetamine smuggling operation, Schellenberg, from Abbotsford, was initially sentenced to 15 years in November, only to be handed the death sentence at a hastily-scheduled January retrial. That came after Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Chinese telecom giant Huawei, on a U.S. extradition warrant in December. Days later, two Canadians — Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor — were detained in China in apparent retaliation.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned Schellenberg’s sentencing in January and accused China of “arbitrarily’’ applying the death penalty. Schellenberg, who was arrested in 2014, has maintained his innocence. More than 200 kilograms (440 pounds) of methamphetamine were seized as part of Schellenberg’s case, the court said. It called the 36-yearold Canadian the “principal offender’’ and said the evidence presented was “true and sufficient.’’ Canadian Embassy officials were notified and Schellenberg’s litigation rights were lawfully protected during Thursday’s proceedings, the court added. Schellenberg’s attorney Zhang Dongshuo said it was not clear when the court would announce a decision. “Both sides comprehensively debated what each believes to be the issues in the case,’’ Zhang said, adding that at this stage he cannot assess what the final judgment will be.

OTTAWA — Canadian senators are trying to make more than 100 amendments to the government’s environmental-assessment bill that overhauls how major energy and transportation projects are reviewed. The Liberals have said they want Bill C-69 to fulfill a 2015 election promise to update a review process they say has meant more work for lawyers than for energy workers. Provincial premiers, energyindustry leaders and the federal Conservatives have accused the government of making a troubled process even more political.

Last week Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is risking national unity over the bill. Conservative and independent senators have introduced dozens of amendments, proposing to put some limits on who can be heard during a review and trying to limit the cabinet’s power to interfere with the process. There are just five sitting weeks left for the Senate to pass the bill so the House of Commons can consider the amendments and, during a three-hour meeting Thursday morning, the committee made it through just 20 pages of the 392-page bill.

TRADE WAR BETWEEN U.S. AND CHINA BAD FOR ALL

U

.S. President Donald Trump is playing hard-ball with China over trade and the worrywarts are concerned he is going to start a real trade war by accident. The bigger threat, however, is that he will push first China, then the whole world, into a deep recession. It’s been 10 years since the last recession (20082009) and that one was a doozy. Recessions tend to come around once a decade, so one is due about now anyway — and the Chinese economy is so shaky that almost any serious shock could topple it into the pit. The rest of the world would follow. A week ago, according to both sides, the U.S.China trade deal was almost done, but (according to Washington) China then started to “renege” on parts of the deal to which it had earlier agreed. Washington is probably telling the truth about that as it’s practically standard in the closing stages of any negotiation with the Chinese government. So, Trump responded by imposing heavy new tariffs on Chinese exports, to come into effect in less than a week’s time unless they back off. According to his Twitter storm last weekend, the existing tariff of 10 per cent on $200 billion of Chinese exports to the United States will more than double to 25 per cent.

GWYNNE DYER World

WATCH Trump said another $325 billion of currently untaxed Chinese exports to the US will face 25 per cent customs duties “shortly.” Decades of experience in the Manhattan real estate market have taught Trump to recognize the smell of fear. He is right. The Chinese are terrified. But Trump knows nothing about trade or the Chinese economy, so he doesn’t understand the implications of that. (This is a guy who boasts that the Chinese are having to pay these new tariffs. It is, of course, the American importers who pay.) Chinese leaders are terrified because their economy is already trembling on the brink of a major recession. They dodged the last one in 2008 by flooding the economy with cheap credit and setting off an investment boom that kept employment high, especially in construction. But that trick only works once. All four corners of almost every major intersection in the 100 biggest Chinese cities are now occupied by dark towers,

40- or 50-storey apartment buildings with few or no occupants. It would take an estimated four years with no new construction to sell off the currently unsold housing stock. And construction continues, albeit at a somewhat slower pace. China is now such a big player that the rest of the world economy would probably follow it into a recession. It would be much worse than the usual couple of years of slow or no growth because none of the major players has really yet recovered from the last recession. The main way governments fight recessions is by cutting the interest rate, but that rate is still near zero in most big economies from the drastic cuts in interest the last time. Moreover, government debt is much higher than it was a decade ago and there would be no public support for bailing out the banks yet again with taxpayers’ money. “We’re in much worse shape to deal with whatever shocks come along than we were 10 years ago,” Nobel Prizewinning economist Paul Krugman said in a recent Bloomberg interview. China is in particularly bad shape. Its total debt, even according to the untrustworthy official figures, is nearing three times its GDP, which is when the alarm bells usually start ringing. What happens if Trump’s huge tariff hikes do not force an immediate Chinese surrender on

City of Kamloops

whatever issues remain in contention in the trade talks? What if Chinese president Xi Jinping and his people decide to tough it out rather than lose a lot of face? What is quite likely to happen is that China slides into a huge recession, dragging the rest of the world behind it. And something else might happen. The Chinese version of the social contract is that the power and privileges of the postCommunist autocracy that runs the country will be tolerated as long as people’s living standards rise rapidly. But they are already stagnating. How would the Chinese public react if living standards actually begin to fall? Really badly, in all likelihood. We live in interesting times.

Victoria Street West Improvements Project Stage 2 Construction Starts the Evening of May 12. The Stage 2 construction zone runs from Seymour Street West just east of Mustard Seed to west of Boomers Automotive near the Overlanders Bridge. During Stage 2, construction will be underway on the south side of the road with traffic travelling on the north side—one lane in each direction. Stage 1 and 2 work will overlap until the end of July 2019. Current Stage 1 Traffic Flow Patterns Will Remain. Stage 1 traffic flow patterns will remain in place, and transit and emergency services vehicles will receive priority routing around the Stage 1 construction zone. For motorists heading to the North Shore from Sahali or downtown, there will be free-flow lanes onto the bridge. Motorists are reminded of the 30 km/h speed limit through the construction zone. Victoria Street West Businesses are Open! All businesses along Victoria Street West are open and accessible. Come by and show your support. Please be courteous and allow motorists exiting businesses to merge into traffic. Remember to plan ahead and anticipate delays. Thank you for your patience. We’re all in this together!

immediately healing the girl. But the mother continued with her request. She humbled herself so much that Jesus, sensing her great love for her daughter, healed the girl. If we humble ourselves and pray continually, Jesus will heal our generation and our children. The Holy Spirit will come down upon them. They will see visions and even prophesy. • Mothers comfort their children (Isaiah 66:13): In the Bible, God says, “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you.” Children need their mother as they grow up and face changes in lives. As they leave home, they may develop emotional problems. They need a friend to share their problems with. Mother is their best friend who can understand them and comfort them when they are discouraged in life, when they cannot cope with their studies, when they are not successful and when they can’t keep friendship. God has given special quality to mothers to win the confidence of their children, listen to them and counsel them so they would be comforted. When mothers don’t carry out their responsibilities, they lose their children. Then the children will find comfort in other people, things and places. Mothers

need to give time to their children. They need your presence and comfort. • Mothers are a teacher’s teacher (Proverbs 31:1): Here, the writer of this chapter is mentioned as King Lemuel saying what his mother taught him. A mother is the first teacher in the family. She teaches the word of God. She teaches obedience and discipline in the family. I am sure that before taking Samuel to the house of God, his mother, Hannah, taught her son to work hard, to obey the elderly and to listen when someone shares wisdom. A mother gave these lessons to Samuel, to whom God Himself spoke. With these qualities, God chose Samuel to be the priest in place of Eli. Hannah did not have to pay any donation to get a higher position for her son. She taught him, disciplined him and prepared him for his vocation in life. Our nation equally needs godly mothers. God gives much importance to mothers in the Bible, but mothers need to realize their important responsibilities and duties. Once Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte was asked, “What is the greatest need of the French nation?” He replied, “The greatest need of France is a nation of mothers.” As we can see his

answer, and from the Bible, mothers are important. They can build families and nations. As poet William Ross Wallace wrote, “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” Sadly, the commercialization of Mother’s Day led Jarvis to detest the day for which she struggled in honour of motherhood. She came to a point where she was arrested for causing trouble to sellers of Mother’s Day merchandise. During the last days of her life, Jarvis knocked on every door to get a petition signed to abolish Mother’s Day. She struggled not to let the real motivation and the true spirit of Mother’s Day die. It’s high time to ditch the materialism behind the day and give our mothers what they deserve — love, respect and honour.

Mormons making wedding rule change to be more inclusive BRADY MCCOMBS

UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH OF ALL SAINTS

SATURDAY May 18, 2019 Divine Liturgy @ 10 am

Wilson declared the second Sunday of May as a national holiday in honour of all American mothers. In the Bible, mothers were counted higher in the family by the Israelites. Jesus also placed his mother on a high level. On the cross, in spite of his pain and suffering, he showed his respect for his mother and made provision for her care. Among the many functions performed daily by mothers for which they are to be honoured are: • Mothers love their children (2 Kings 4:1): In this passage, a mother loved her two sons so much that she did not want them to go into slavery under a creditor. She cried to a man of God for help. Today, many young people are under the slavery of Satan, sin, evil habits and addictions of various types. God has given the mothers the important responsibility of loving their children not only by providing their physical needs, but by crying unto the Lord for their spiritual health so they would be free from their enemies. Mothers, pray for the children if you love them so God will have mercy upon them. In Mark 7:24-30, a mother came to Jesus asking him to heal her daughter. Jesus, in turn, gave her some reason for not

SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has changed wedding rules in an effort to prevent family members who aren’t church members from feeling excluded. Couples who get married in civil ceremonies will no longer have to wait one year to do a temple wedding ceremony that only members in good standing can attend. Church leaders said it will allow “families to come

together in love and unity,’’ but doesn’t lessen the temple ceremony the faith believes seals the couple for eternity. Religious scholar Matthew Bowman said the old wedding rule was designed to encourage couples to get married in a temple and have a reception or “ring ceremony’’ afterward, but sometimes created heartache for families with mixed religious affiliations. Church convert Aubri Alvarez said her mother cried on the steps of the Albuquerque temple while she and her husband went

through the wedding ceremony inside. Alvarez, 19, said the reception after her wedding last year “softened the blow,’’ but it was painful for her evangelical parents not to be able to participate in their only daughter’s wedding. “My parents also love God and are very nice people and they couldn’t see their daughter get married,’’ Alvarez said. “This change will help a lot of people who are not born into the church. You really had to choose between the church and your family.’’

Grasslands National Park: where buffalo roam JAMIE ROSS

SPECIAL TO KTW

I

whisper to my horse Gus as he gamely hauls my butt up yet another steep incline, “Who said Saskatchewan is flat?” The question is meant to be rhetorical, but with a sharp expulsion of air, from both ends of his body, the horse gives me his answer. My palomino and I pick our way through silver sagebrush, prairie grass, prickly pear cactus, primrose and cottonwood. Down through wet coulees and up the side of sandy ravines, trotting upwards until we reach a viewpoint over the Valley of 1,000 Devils, carved by ancient glaciers. Far from being flat, here is undulating landscape of hoodoos, dry cliffs and rocky buttes spreading to the horizon. This breathtaking view of the

badlands is stunning. This is the East Block of Grasslands National Park in southern Saskatchewan, a remote and beautiful gem. Established in 1981, the park is one of Canada’s newest, protecting one of the largest remnants of undisturbed Prairie grasslands. Some 4.5 hours southwest of Regina and a stone’s throw from Montana, the park not only protects beautifully unique flora, it’s home to countless species of rare birds (including sage-grouse, burrowing owls and ferruginous hawks), as well as wild bison, prairie rattlesnakes, pronghorn antelope and short-horned lizards. The park is made up of two distinct and separate blocks. The east block of the park — where I have done my day’s riding — is more wilderness area. In 1874, while working the international boundary survey, Sir George Mercer Dawson discovered Western Canada’s first dinosaur remains here. In 1877, Sitting Bull took refuge

in the area following the Battle of Little Bighorn. Teepee rings and ancient stone tools have been found throughout these hills. I feel a little like Sitting Bull settling into my overnight teepee accommodations at the Rock Creek Campground. I stumble back to my teepee in the dark after spending time staring up at one of the starriest night skies I have experienced. In Grasslands Park, it’s not just the land that’s protected, but also the sky. The park is so far from cities and other sources of light that in 2009, the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada declared the park a dark sky preserve, which is not only good for attracting stargazers, but also beneficial for the habitat of nocturnal species, such as the black-footed ferret, which was recently re-introduced into the area. The next morning, I move on to Grassland’s West Block. I set up for the night in one of Parks

Canada’s oTENTiks, (a cross between an A-frame cabin and a prospector tent mounted on a wooden floor). Later, as the sun drops lower in a pink sky, I drive up above Frenchman Valley in search of evening wildlife. I come across two large bison grazing lazily on the wide plain. These are truly majestic creatures and I find it hard to imagine when millions of bison roamed freely over these same plains. Here in Grasslands, 71 bison were re-introduced to the park in 2005, after being gone for 120 years. Now, there are more than 300 bison and 40 calves. While I observe the bison, I can’t help but get the sense I am, in turn, being scrutinized by some curious creatures. To fully experience the subtle beauty of the park, you need to get out for a hike, with the fivekilometre 70 Mile Butte loop being one of more popular. Having retired my horse for the

day, I hike upwards on the trail to the highest peak, a 932-metre hilltop with a spectacular view over the Frenchman River Valley. I find solace in this wild and windy landscape, in this land of living skies and vast prairie. This national park is not as grand as our mountain parks, which in some ways adds to its appeal. Only 12,000 visitors make it to Grasslands annually, compared to nearly four million in Banff. Grasslands’ beauty is more subtle. What’s protected here is a deceptively complex and dynamic ecosystem. From my perch on 70 Mile Butte, I gaze out over endless prairie. Grasslands move like an inland sea, shimmering in waves, green and golden in the sun.

W

ith years of education and performance experience overseas, Tomas Bijok has a lot to offer singers of Kamloops — and he’s trying his hardest through his involvement with several of the city’s choirs. Bijok comes from a musical family. His father made a living building pianos for Petrof in the former Czechoslovakia and sung, himself — although that changed when the family became refugees in Bosnia-Herzegovina before immigrating to Vancouver in the 1980s. Bijok and family lived in Vancouver for eight years before moving to Kamloops. After growing up here, Bijok pursued music education at the University of British Columbia. While performing with a UBC ensemble back in the Czech Republic, Bijok decided to reach out to the renowned Performing Arts Academy in Prague. After he auditioned, he was welcomed to study at the school as one of just a handful of students accepted each year. “I realized there was industry there in music, in theatre. It was alive and active,” he said. Bijok spent six years in Prague studying and playing with world

class musicians and teachers. What followed were intense tours, performing in the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Japan and France. Although he was seeing success as a performer, after facing down a tour schedule that saw him perform 22 shows in 30 days, Bijok said he began to question if this was what he wanted. “It came to a point where I asked myself, am I going to pursue this for the rest of my life, or am I going to do something else?” he said. He returned to Kamloops and began doing private lessons in his home before spotting an opportunity with Thompson Rivers University. He waited months for the position to open up, but eventually it did and he began teaching first-year music courses. Later, Bijok was behind the push to add second-year music courses — something TRU has never offered before — and was successful. But where Bijok has spent much of his time has not been in the classroom — it has been with many of the city’s choirs. Currently, Bijok works with the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra Chorus, the TRU Chamber Chorus, the Happy Choristers and soon, the Kamloops Pride Choir — running the gamut in terms of

age and experience. The Happy Choristers are a 55-plus group that often performs concerts in places like seniors’ homes as part of its outreach work. Bijok said he doesn’t see many differences between the age groups he works with, and really just wants to encourage everyone to sing. “People tend to have this idea that once they reach a certain age, their voices start to go and they can’t sing anymore — I find that very rarely to be the case, unless there’s a medical condition,” he said. Bijok and the Kamloops Happy

Choristers will be at St. Andrews on the Square, 159 Seymour St., on Sunday at 4 p.m. to perform a variety songs, including Celtic, love songs and selections from the Great American Songbook. Admission is by donation. While Bijok said the church is an excellent venue, acoustically, he advocated for a more performance venues. “Kamloops is in a strange situation right now. We decided not to build a theatre a few years ago, and now one truss broke in the Sagebrush and we don’t have any performance venues,” he said. The Sagebrush Theatre closed in February and is not expected

to re-open until September. Bijok said he does want to see the Sagebrush fixed, but said it should be a venue for the high school as it was originally intended, and one of the city’s only performing arts venues. “We have so much art and culture happening in Kamloops. These things should not go to referendum. These should be city decisions. There is millions of dollars being spent around the city in other areas that are just a given. This should be a given. I think we’ve overlooked that for far too long. If the arena needed fixing, we wouldn’t bat an eye,” he said.

Painter says Kamloops’ ranching community is nothing to brush off SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

prominent Kamloops sculptor has turned to paint to broaden his artistic skill set. Garry Davies has created a series of paintings portraying the scenes of local ranches and the cowboys, cowgirls and animals that populate them. Davies and fellow sculptor Terry Norlander created The Overlanders of 1862, the bronze sculpture placed outside Kamloops City Hall. The sculpture was created in 2003, and both artists have continued their work as sculptors, with Norlander continuing to sell his work locally and Davies selling in the Lower Mainland and Victoria. But it’s another type of work from Davies that he hopes will attract people to his latest exhibition at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre’s main gallery.

Davies said he’s been painting all his life, but his most recent foray into painting comes after taking a number of courses at TRU and the decision to pursue a topic he sees as important. “My subject matter, cowboys and cowgirls, is meant to bring them to the forefront and say to people they’re still around us — and show some examples of what they do every day,” he said. Davies said that because Kamloops is now an urban setting, people tend to forget that the city is still surrounded by the sorts of scenes he has put to canvas. His paintings are done with diluted acrylic paints to make them look like watercolours. He said it’s a style that allows him to create a washed-out background with more detail in his subjects. Davies will also be showing a number of his portraits — a collection he’s looking to add to because

“paint costs money,” he joked. “You can take a photograph, but you really don’t get the essence of the person,” he said. Davies said a portrait usually takes a few hours, plus the time to get to know his subject, and typically costs between $200 and $300.

In addition to Davies’ exhibit at the KAC main gallery is the work of another artist in the hallway gallery. Lynne Flanders’ Life in the Caribou and Beyond will show at the same time, featuring scenes from the Caribou, Haida Gwaii and beyond. Both exhibitions run until June 1

and will hold opening receptions on Friday, May 10, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, 7 West Seymour St., is open Tuesdays to Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Fringe festival brings back theatre, dance, comedy TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

festival slated to hit the stage later this month promises something for everyone, according to organizers. The second-annual Hydra Festival begins on May 23 and wraps up June 1. Featuring 11 shows, each performed three times, the festival will show “a little bit of everything,” according to organizer Aaron Shufletoski. “Last year, we had shows ranging from serious theatre to abstract theatre, dance, comedy, music — anything you could imagine,” he told KTW. “This year is similar.” Each performance will take place at the Black Box Theatre inside the Old Main building on the campus of Thompson Rivers University. Shufletoski said the venue provides a perfect setting for the shows. “All the shows are fairly sparse for sets — quick to set up and take

down. Most of them are around a half-hour, 45 minutes long.” A production of Chimera Theatre, Hydra Festival is very much a local event. Shufletoski said nearly every performer lives in Kamloops, and the three who don’t are city ex-pats. One of those former Tournament Capital performers is Devon More. She found success at last year’s Hydra Festival and then took her show on the road, crossing Canada on the fringe circuit. More is doing the same thing this year. Her show, Hits Like a Girl, will be Hydra Festival’s first full performance on opening night. Shufletoski said the local angle is something Chimera is particularly proud of — and something that distinguishes Hydra Festival. “It’s just amazing to see what talent there is hidden in Kamloops,” he said. “If you go to something at the festival and you didn’t know what it is, I think you might be pleasantly surprised. It’s kind of mindblowing, in a way, that Kamloops

locals can come up with this.” And it’s not just plays. Shufletoski said organizers are trying to bring more of a festival feel to this year’s event. “Besides the shows we’re trying to get the whole festival component,” Shufletoski said. “So there are workshops, too, and a festival lounge.” More information, including a festival schedule and ticket pricing, can be found online at chimeratheatre.com. Shufletoski said 50 per cent of revenue goes to the artists and the other half covers overhead. “It’s a real grassroots festival,” he said. “We don’t have any big corporate sponsorship. It isn’t presented by BCLC or something. This is all coming from the performers themselves, and some goodwill from TRU.” Clockwise from top: Aaron Shufletoski, the Kamloops Burlesque team and Devon More are among the acts in the festival.

Toronto animator on being embroiled in The Good Fight Tickets: $10 Donations CBS censorship clash Meet the creator of the Stand Up For Mental Health program David Granirer

PROCEEDS TO CANADIAN MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION.

ADINA BRESGE

CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Canadian animator Steve Angel recognizes the irony that his cartoon about censorship was, itself, censored. The co-owner of Torontobased studio Head Gear Animation produces interstitial musical shorts for The Good Fight, a ripped-from-the-headlines legal drama on the U.S. streaming service CBS All Access. The show, which is a spinoff of The Good Wife and airs on the W Network in Canada, centres on a left-leaning Chicago law firm arguing cases about the issues of the day against the political backdrop of Donald Trump’s presidency. The Good Fight is often broken up by Schoolhouse Rock!style segments with satirical songs written and performed by American musician Jonathan Coulton. Angel and his team animate Coulton’s music with provocative cartoons, which in the past have included a Nazi-uniformed frog, a reptilian caricature of Hillary Clinton and a scene of the presidential bedroom. But on a recent episode of the show, a segment criticizing censorship in China was replaced with an eight-second placard reading, “CBS has cen-

sored this content.” In a statement, a CBS All Access spokesperson said after raising concerns about the animated short’s subject matter, it had reached this “creative solution” with the show’s producers. “I was disappointed, but I understand,” Angel said in a phone interview, as a CBS publicist listened on the other end of the line. “There’s the obvious irony of it, but at the same time, I think because it’s pretty incendiary material, it wasn’t a gigantic surprise.” Angel said he couldn’t comment on the content of the segment, but The New Yorker reports the animation alludes to several subjects that have been banned online in China, including Winnie-the-Pooh, as the character was used in memes as a way to poke fun at Chinese President Xi Jinping. The magazine reports the clip featured the leader dressed as the cartoon bear, shaking his exposed bottom. While Angel said showrunners Robert and Michelle King have encouraged him not to shy away from provocation, he admitted he felt nervous while drawing the cartoon given Canada’s current tensions with China. Sino-Canadian diplomatic relations are at a new low after RCMP detained Chinese executive Meng Wanzhou in December

at the request of Chinese authorities. Nine days after Meng’s arrest, two other Canadians — ex-diplomat Michael Kovrig and entrepreneur Michael Spavor — were detained in China on allegations they had violated China’s national security. “When you’re drawing, you’re kind of in your own head and it’s you and a pencil and paper, and it’s a very internal world,” said Angel. “Something that goes from kind of an intimate, personal practice to a highly public venture is a big leap, and it has perils.” Angel said he decided to set aside his concerns about the internationally charged content in the Good Fight short because he supports the show’s broader mission. “If everything blows up as a result of this, it’s a good way to go down,” he said. Still, Angel said the pulled segment was his favourite of the season, and he hopes it will eventually see the light of day. “Right now, we’re in the middle of this big, hurly-burly moment, and everyone is freaked out together,” said Angel. “Despite the madness of this event, I think it will pass and it will get back to normal, but at the same time, not stop challenging authority and holding up a mirror to power.”

CRIMES OF THE WEEK SHOTS Theft suspect was wearing distinctive jacket On April 2, numerous vehicles were broken into in the downtown Kamloops area. The suspect is a white male with short, brown hair. At the time, he was wearing a blue- and yellow-patterned jacket and jeans. if you recognize him from the attached photo, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Apologetic thief took the liquor and left At 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, a man walked into a liquor store on the North Shore and picked out a large selection of alcohol. When he went to pay for it, his debit card was rejected. The man then grabbed his debit card and the alcohol and ran out of the store, yelling, “Sorry!” to the cashier and he left. The thief is white and has a receding hairline. He was wearing a black and grey sweater with a yellow stripe and zipper that extended threequarters down the front. If you recognize him, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Help cops catch credit card cons The case of the stolen wallet spans two separate calendar years. In September 2018, a wallet was stolen. The woman whose wallet was taken forgot to cancel a credit card and later discovered more than $3,000 in charges had been racked up at various Kamloops businesses. There are two men suspected of using the stolen credit card. One has been identified, but police are trying to put a name to the second suspect. He is First Nations and, when he used the card, had a buzz cut haircut and was wearing a black T-shirt with a white design on the front. If you know his name, call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS (8477).

Rogers Media cancels TV upfront CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Rogers Media no longer plans to have a splashy event to promote its upcoming TV season — a one-day celebration known in the industry as an upfront. In a statement, the company says it has “made the difficult, but fiscally responsible, decision to not move forward with this year’s upfront event.” Every year around spring, American and Canadian broadcasters typically hold their own upfront presentations to tout their slate of programming and talent for advertisers and media buyers. Celebrities starring in those shows often attend the day-long events, conducting interviews with members of the media and onstage Q-and-As for an industry audience. Rogers Media had originally scheduled this year’s upfront for June 4 at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto. It now says instead of an upfront this year, it will “focus on customized agency presentations” to highlight

its fall schedules on Citytv, FX, OMNI Television, and Sportsnet. “The traditional upfront is a oneway conversation; we want a dialogue with our clients,” Rogers Media said in Thursday’s statement. “These intimate events with agencies allow us to better understand clients’ unique needs and deliver creative solutions to meet those needs.” Rogers Media says it still plans to hold an event for press at a yet-tobe-announced date, and will reallocate “the significant budget allotted to the upfront” to amplify its onscreen programming and products. “As the media industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace, it is essential we continue to reassess the areas in which we can deliver the most value to our audiences, clients, and partners,” Rogers Media said. “We remain deeply committed to investing in content and growing our core business. Television and our exceptional programming schedule is a primary focus for us. We are heading to L.A. next week to meet with the studios and acquire the hottest new shows for fall.”

WASHINGTON — Former President Barack Obama’s post-White House memoir isn’t expected to be released this year, setting up the likelihood that the highly anticipated book will drop during the 2020 campaign. Publisher Penguin Random House started alerting foreign partners and others about the status of Obama’s book on Tuesday. The former president has been writing the book himself using the same technique he used for numerous White House speeches and his first bestseller, Dreams from My Father. The former president and his wife, Michelle Obama, signed lucrative book deals in 2017. Mrs. Obama’s book was

released last year and quickly became one of the most popular political memoirs in history, with more than 10 million copies sold worldwide. The timing of the former president’s book release is trickier. A 2020 book launch could thrust Obama back into the spotlight just as Democratic voters are choosing a presidential nominee, prompting fresh discussion of his legacy and putting him on the spot about the candidates hoping to build on it. That would be a particularly delicate dance given that Obama has made clear he has no plans to play a role in the Democratic presidential primary, including declining to endorse his vice-president, Joe Biden, or any other candidate.

Chris Hadfield was his hero and Bobby, now in Grade 4, could not wait until he was old enough to become an astronaut. One day in class, while staring out the window at Mount Paul, Bobby saw something that made his heart leap. “Maybe,” he thought to himself, “I won’t have to wait until I am older to visit space!” (The next part was written by Danica Cain.) “A rocket ship!” Bobby cried in delight.

All he could see was the dim light of a red dwarf star in the distance, alongside two other stars. Bobby couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw a planet orbiting the three stars. They landed on the planet and started searching the misty atmosphere for the mother ship. The planet was

a lot like Earth, but with twiggy ground and sparkling purple water. Bobby gasped. The sky was an incredible sight. Stars were aligned and getting ready to set. Looking off into that distance, Bobby then saw that one side of the planet was night.

WOLFPACK BASEBALL TEAM MAY STRIKE OUT WITH UNIVERSITY FUNDING AFTER 2019-2020 FISCAL YEAR MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

A projected funding cut has the potential to endanger the TRU WolfPack baseball team’s existence, according to head coach Ray Chadwick. “I’ll keep my office and I’ll keep the things that they [TRU] do on paper for us, but, yeah, we won’t get any more financial help,” said Chadwick, who has been at the Pack’s helm since 2003. In the past, the program has received between $20,000 and $30,000 annually from TRU, one source told KTW. “There will be a change with the funding,” WolfPack athletic director Curtis Atkinson confirmed. “Without getting into too much detail, we continue to want to support and have a baseball team and support them administratively, but with the funding model, there will be some changes. Everything is intact for the 20192020 fiscal year. Going forward is where we could see some changes.” The WolfPack baseball squad is a club team that competes outside of the U Sports umbrella in the Canadian College Baseball Conference. “Club teams are largely self-funded when compared to varsity teams,”

Atkinson said. “That’s the principle we follow. I wouldn’t say it’s a drastically different direction.” The WolfPack baseball team is run by the Kamloops Collegiate Baseball Society. Its president, Jeff Vanjoff, opted not to comment until the CCBC National Championship ends. The tournament runs through to Sunday at Norbrock Stadium. Chadwick is concerned about losing Kamloops Collegiate Baseball Society support. “They’re a little frustrated with it,” Chadwick said. “They don’t tell me, but I know. They’re the people that have run this program and have gone to them [TRU] and got this funding. “Taking 30,000 dollars away and we give anywhere from 30 to 45 students at the university every year, that have come here from other places, that live here, that spend money at the university and in the community. For them, $30,000 was not a lot. That’s less than a thousand dollars a player that we bring in here every year for the last 16 years.” Atkinson said last January at his introductory press conference his focus is on growing the WolfPack’s stable of U Sports teams. Rugby sevens, cheerleading and baseball are listed as the WolfPack’s club teams

on their website. The rugby program was nixed after the 2019 season. The WolfPack hockey team, which toiled in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League from 2008 to 2014, was hampered by operating deficits and folded in 2014, when Ken Olynyk was the Pack’s athletic director. Trevor Bast spearheaded a group called Revive TRU Hockey, aiming to ice a team for the 2015-2016 season, but said TRU brass had no interest in resuscitation. “I don’t think they ever did [have interest],” Bast said in 2014. “Based on their comments, I think all of my energies with them have all been in vain.” Chadwick said he will do everything he can to make sure baseball is not next to fizzle out. “We’re going to cut out some stuff that we’ve been doing, games and travel, and see if we can make that money up,” Chadwick said. “We won’t be able to make it up, of course, but we’re going to try to do some things to still exist and keep playing. “When he [Olynyk] was leaving, we found out we were going to get it [funding] for another year or two, and then it would cease. This is the end of that year or two.” As of Tuesday, Chadwick had not broken the news to players. “I don’t think it’s Curtis [Atkinson],”

Chadwick said. “It’s something the higherups have decided they’re not going to do for us anymore. “I think it’s the institution itself and whatever the things they are keen to make up for. I really don’t know. I don’t know why [the funding is being cut]. I stay out of that stuff and just show up to try and win baseball games and get kids here. We’ve gotten kids from every other province, other countries. We’ve been a successful program.” The Pack won the CCBC championship in 2005, 2007 and 2009. TRU reached the final most recently in 2017. “If it is to continue, it may be something I’m going to end up doing and finding ex-players to come in and help,” Chadwick said. “They’re [the Kamloops Collegiate Baseball Society board] frustrated and I know that. Regardless of the $30,000 they’re [TRU] taking away and regardless if the board is fed up and ready to call it quits, I will find some way to figure out a way for us to keep playing.” ALUMNI CONCERNED Former WolfPack player Ryan Friedrich came to Chadwick and the program’s defence during a phone call with KTW on Wednesday.

The seventh annual Kamloops Ride Don’t Hide event will take place on June 23, but promotion of the nationwide fundraising bike ride that brings mental health out into the open began this week — Mental Health Week. Three-time Olympian mountain biker Catharine Pendrel kicked off Mental Health Week by talking about the importance of Ride Don’t Hide, which will take place next month in 25 communities across Canada. Cyclists of all ages are invited to take part in the event that aims to build awareness, inclusion and acceptance, and that encourages everyone to speak openly about their own mental health. Pendrel is racing at Vedder Mountain in Chilliwack this weekend, then off to Europe on Monday ahead of World Cup racing. Pendrel said Shelley Trudeau, the Canadian Mental Health Association’s housing and Ride Don’t Hide event manager in Kamloops, reached out to her about the event, which Pendrel said is an opportunity to learn about mental-health tools available locally. Two people in the cycling community recently died by suicide: Olympic medallist and multiple-time world champion Kelly Catlin, 23, and junior Canadian champion Charlotte Creswicke, 19. “To the outside, they look extremely successful and they are extremely successful, but being successful doesn’t necessarily mean everything is rosy on the inside,” Pendrel said. “The whole idea behind Ride Don’t Hide is starting conversations so that people know it’s important and healthy to talk about mental health and struggles and it doesn’t show weakness or any failing to reach out and talk about it. It should be an ongoing conversation.” Pendrel said there are simple things that are very important to an athlete, in terms of eating healthy, having good sleep hygiene and reducing stress. “In my life, you definitely see the impact of stress on how you feel about yourself, how you feel about the world in general, your confidence,” Pendrel said. “In the sports world, at the higher level, you’re lucky to have access to sports psychologists and that’s encouraged, rather than stigmatized. You’re building these mental-health tools before you ever need them. Seeing that extend into the broader com-

munity with Ride Don’t Hide, I think it emphasizes two things: getting physical exercise and building a community.” Pendrel said she has not struggled with a debilitating mental illness, but does see mental health as being extremely important. “You have to understand the highs and lows people can go through,” she said. Christa Mullaly, executive director of the Kamloops branch of the CMHA, said this year’s Ride Don’t Hide event will be held in Riverside Park. “The visibility of our event and the size it has grown to demonstrate to me that people are ready to come out into the open and be supported,” Mullaly said. Statistics show more than half of Canadians (53 per cent) consider anxiety and depression to be epidemic in Canada, Mullaly said, noting two thirds (66 per cent) of those with mental-health issues do not access help, largely due to stigma. “When we hide from each other and from how we’re feeling, we don’t get the support or help we deserve or need,” she said. “We all deserve to feel well. And connecting with each other, with our families and our communities through Ride Don’t Hide can help forge those bonds and fortify that social cohesion that reassures us we are not alone.” Ride Don’t Hide is the largest mental-health bike ride in Canada, with more than 10,000 riders taking part, raising more than $2 million each year for the Canadian Mental Health Association. This year’s national sponsor is the Medicine Shoppe. For more information on

A NATIONAL PLAN TO ADDRESS SUICIDE Members of Parliament from all parties voted this week support Timmins-James Bay NDP MP Charlie Angus’ call for a national suicide prevention action plan. Canada is the only G7 country without a national suicide action plan. “This is a historic moment,” said Angus. “It is possible for parliamentarians to work together across party lines. The need for the federal government to play a positive role in working with health organizations, affected communities and Indigenous people is clear. This is about saving lives.” Quebec developed a plan in the 1990s, which reduced youth suicide by 50 per cent. Bill M-174 calls on the government to follow through on a proposed plan that lays out important steps proven to reduce the threat of suicide across the country. “The work of creating and implementing the plan remains and the government needs to move forward quickly. We need to get the groundwork laid before the election to keep the momentum going,” Angus said. “Canadians have been waiting for this for a long time. The government owes it to them to get moving and put something real in place.” Angus’ motion had been endorsed by the Canadian Medical Association, the Canadian Nurses’ Association, Nishnawbe Aski Nation and the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.

‘This is a family thing’ MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Abruptly awoken Wolves are emerging from their den, claws out in defence of their leader and the program he reared. Former TRU WolfPack baseball player Ryan Friedrich spoke to KTW on behalf of a group of alumni that is disturbed to hear the team may be jeopardized by a funding cut. Head coach Ray Chadwick said losing $30,000 annually from TRU has potential to cull the WolfPack, noting the Kamloops Collegiate Baseball Society, which runs the club team at arm’s length from the university, is frustrated with the institution. “This is a family thing,” said Friedrich, who was alarmed when reading a KTW story on the matter online on Tuesday night. “Ray has preached that from Day 1. Knowing they may take something away from us, it’s hard. “The reason I reached out is so some of the alumni guys had a voice to say what he and the program have done for us. It’s quite a bit. I wouldn’t have stayed around otherwise. My kid was born here.” Friedrich, a 33-year-old Trail product who attended TRU from 2005 to 2009, said he is one of many alumni who moved to Kamloops for baseball and stayed here after university. “I definitely wouldn’t be here without

the program,” said Friedrich, a rehab assistant at Royal Inland Hospital. “I probably would have been in Trail doing something, maybe working at COMINCO.” Friedrich admits he does not know the whole story behind the projected funding cut, with changes expected to come after the 2019-2020 fiscal year. One source told KTW the Kamloops Collegiate Baseball Society has known about the impending funding changes since prior to former athletic director Ken Olynyk’s departure in January of 2018. “I wish a lot of us knew,” Friedrich said. “If they really did know two years ago, I wish a lot of us knew.” Chadwick raved about Kamloops Collegiate Baseball Society president Jeff Vanjoff and what he’s done for the program. Vanjoff is declining comment until the Canadian Collegiate Baseball Conference Championship wraps up on Sunday. One source told KTW there may still be TRU money available to the program going forward. The per-semester fee to play for TRU’s baseball team is $2,200, money paid to the club to help run the program. “I don’t understand the whole money end of what TRU does, but I do understand these players come here, they do pay money to play and that extra bit of money does help to fund the team,” Friedrich said. “Cutting that [$30,000] at all or in total

does put a damper on not only TRU baseball, but Sun Devils’ baseball in the summer, which is another thing I’m involved in. If we lose TRU baseball, we will lose Sun Devils’ baseball.” The Kamloops Sun Devils, the squad that plays annually in the Kamloops International Baseball Tournament, is a summer men’s team fed by the WolfPack. Both organizations contribute to the Kamloops Minor Baseball Association, putting on clinics and helping out in other ways. “We have a lot of guys that went on to do a lot of great things from TRU baseball,” Friedrich said. “Some played minor league baseball, some are lawyers and some are going to be doctors. “They didn’t just come here to play baseball. They also came to go to school. A lot of that money they paid to go to school helps TRU, as well.” “Say there are 30 kids that take three classes, with what tuition costs these days, it would be nice if they [TRU] could find that little bit of money.” Friedrich said alumni are willing to go to bat for Chadwick and the program. “Ray probably doesn’t want to leave this town,” Friedrich said. “He’s good at what he does. “A lot of the guys have said we’ll find a way to not let the program fold. We’ll see what we can get from sponsors. “Hopefully, it turns out for the best.”

Not much between TOJLL teams in 2019 MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Early-season results suggest the three-team Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League will be parity-filled. The Kelowna Raiders folded prior to the 2018 season and the Armstrong Shamrocks followed suit this year, leaving the Kamloops Venom, Vernon Tigers and South Okanagan Flames of Penticton to vie for league supremacy. “They’re both really good,” said Liam Hagerty, the Venom’s head coach. “The skill has been condensed.” Armstrong was 2-9-1 in 2018. In 2017, the Raiders were outscored 206-52, forfeited three games and finished 0-16. South Okanagan, which won one of 12 games last season, earned a 17-15 victory over defending champion Vernon in Penticton on April 29, with help from displaced Kelowna runners. The hometown Tigers edged the Venom 10-8 on May 4. Kamloops dispatched South Okanagan 12-11 on Monday. “There are no easy games this year, no write-offs out there,” Hagerty said. Shamrocks’ castoff Mykl Drabiuk joined the Venom and is enjoying a stellar start to his graduating campaign, tied with Flames’ runner Cairo Rogers for

the league lead in goals, with eight after three games. “He’s been outstanding,” Hagerty said, noting both Kamloops and Vernon have snared a few former Shamrocks. “He’s an absolute workhorse, takes a beating every night and draws the other team into a lot of penalties. He scores goals. We were lucky to get him.” Kamloops product Callum Gorman leads the league in points (20) and assists (14). “He’s got a mind for the game like no one else on the team,” Hagerty said. The Snakes’ bench boss is in a pickle between the pipes, where the problem is sweet for the team, but sour for the goaltenders.

Veterans Ethan Milobar and Troy Cuzzetto and rookies Reed Watson and RJ Gerow are pushing each other for minutes, but there are not enough to go around. “We’ve had three goalies start and they’ve all played extremely well,” Hagerty said. “Reed started his first game [on Monday] and had an outstanding game. “It’s a good problem to have, but it kind of sucks for them because they don’t get as much playing time.” Kamloops (3-1) will play host to two games this weekend, with the Flames (1-2) coming to town on Saturday and the Tigers (1-2) arriving on Sunday. Game time is 7:30 p.m. both nights at Memorial Arena.

Lions’ camp in Kamloops endangered CANADIAN PRESS

The CFL Players’ Association has informed players on four CFL teams not to report to camp if a new collective bargaining agreement isn’t reached by May 18. Union executive director Brian Ramsay said in conference calls that players with the B.C. Lions, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes won’t report to the start of training camp without a new agreement. The Lions are scheduled to host camp from May 19 to June 6 at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops, with rookie camp to run from May 15 to May 17. Ramsay added players with the two Alberta

teams (Calgary and Edmonton) and three Ontario franchises (Toronto, Ottawa and Hamilton) have been advised to report to comply with labour laws in those provinces. However, Ramsay said those players would be in a legal strike position by May 23 and could join to make it a league-wide work stoppage at that time. Ramsay reiterated the union’s overwhelming preference is to reach an agreement with the league and prevent any work stoppage. The CFL and its players ended three days of talks on Wednesday, after which Ramsay said the two sides aren’t “necessarily where we need to be right now,’’ with the current agreement set to expire May 18.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Charles “Stormin” Norman Atkinson January 9, 1928 - April 27, 2019

Debra Michelle Fox

S. Jeet Singh Sandhu

November 16, 1956 - April 28, 2019

1939 - 2019

Debra (Debbie) Fox (née Merrett), age 62, peacefully returned to spirit at sunset in hospice on Sunday, April 28, 2019, surrounded by loved ones.

A life well-lived is a precious gift of hope and strength and grace From someone who has made our world a brighter, better place. Great-Grampa’s life is a legacy of skiing, fun and pleasure With laughter and songs and memories our thankful hearts will treasure.

Thank You

Many thanks are due to our many family members and friends who worked hard to make our memory day for Norm a special time. We had a joyous celebration thanks to Rev. Canon Sandra Sudgeon and pianist Heather Berg with fun remembrances presented by grandson Chris MacDonald and great-grandson Alex Bigham (poem above). We all enjoyed a fabulous lunch thanks to all the hard workers at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Our family celebrations continued in Norm’s style with room for the kids to run and play in Riverside Park, then a meal in the Activity Room at Manor House, and family sing-along. Norm would have enjoyed every minute of it, as we all did. Norman’s hospital stay was just a little over a week during which time he received great care and attention from all on 5-South. We are so appreciative of all the exceptionally hard-working staff. Thanks to Dr. Victor De Kock for looking out for Norm during recent years and special thanks to Dr. Brenda Laupland for her sensitive care extended to Norm and our family in his last days. Thanks to Drakes Cremation and Funeral Services who with a very short time frame managed to get Norm to the church on time! Norm’s 91 years were spent making friends and we are so glad to hear from and see so many of you as we continue this journey and try to keep his spark with us. Grace Atkinson and Family

A born and raised Calgarian, Debbie attended school in the NW and graduated from James Fowler HS. She soon found herself in love, getting married, raising two baby girls, all while beginning her 30 year career in banking. She may have had a mind for numbers at work, but Debbie was endlessly curious about the world around her. There wasn’t a skill or craft that she couldn’t master and share with others. Whether she was sewing her own wedding dress, tiling bathrooms, baking cookies or artfully creating crystal suncatchers, she approached it all with joy and passion. The consummate hostess, Debbie’s house was a haven of comfort and love filled with souls, food and laughter. As her health began to decline, she and Brent moved to BC to be closer to their daughters and receive unparalleled health care by all the wonderful staff at Kamloops Cancer Centre, Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre in Kelowna, Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House in Kamloops and Dr. Brenda Laupland. Debbie will be deeply, wholeheartedly missed by her husband Brent, daughters Brandi (Vanbric) and Amber, precious granddaughters Evangeline and Vivienne, and grandpups Thor and Indigo. Debbie was predeceased by her father Ronald, brother Ron (Bev), step-dad Peter Blackie, beloved in-laws Mary, Allen, Gary and Sharron (Terry). She is survived by her mother Marjorie Blackie, brothers Randy (Dani), Ric, Russ, dear sister Melanie (Rob), sister-in-law Sandra and many wonderful nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

S. Jeet Singh Sandhu of Kamloops passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at the age of 80. He was born on February 24, 1939 in Ajitwal (Punjab) India. He is survived by his wife and four children Pardeep Singh, Gurdeep Kaur, Hardeep, Vijaypal Kaur, and eight grandchildren. Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, May 11, 2019 in the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive. Final prayers will be held at 1:00 pm at the Kamloops Gurudwara Sahib Society, 1345 Ord Road.

A celebration of Debbie’s life will be held this summer in Calgary; announcement to come.

Patricia Winifred Capon (née Everitt)

March 8, 1936 – April 30, 2019

Our light, our rock and our anchor. We have all been cast adrift by her completely unexpected loss. There are no words to express how devastated and shattered we all are. Mom was born in Thorpe-Le-Soken, in the county of Essex, England. Her and dad met in 1955 and married on September 19, 1957. Over the next decades they travelled and moved extensively between England, Europe, the Middle East and Canada, with mom usually closing down house and toting four children in her care while dad went on ahead. They finally settled in Canada in 1967, starting in Montreal and moving west to reside in Kamloops before settling in to White Rock for 30 years. Mom and dad moved back to Kamloops the final time in 2005.

Q. What’s a keepsake urn?

Love you dearly and God bless the precious memories you left behind or us to remember you by.

!

A. There are several types, but basically a keepsake urn is a very small urn which holds a small amount of the loved one’s ashes or cremated remains. Some people like to keep a keepsake urn, while they bury or scatter the remainder. We have some unique options, some at no charge. Call or drop by. !

Tim Cook offers a history of working in funeral service as a funeral director and embalmer for over 24 years. Tim’s favourite past times includes spending time with family and friends along with fishing and time at the lake. Tim was born in Saskatchewan and has spent the last 48 years in Kamloops, which has allowed him to develop a large network of friends and a great sense of community.

She was happy to be here surrounded by most of her family. It is so difficult to describe her smile and laugh or to encapsulate her amazing life in only a few paragraphs, but she leaves an amazing familial legacy in her loving and majestic wake. Lovingly survived by husband John (dad’s cookie), son John (Palma) and daughters Marina (Francis), Heather (Gerald) and Denise. She loved so much and was so proud of her six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her three brothers in England and their families.

“Mommy”

Every Friday in KTW!

May you rest in peace while you do your jig with all your ancestors, and wearing your Metis sash up in heaven while looking down on us all.

Funeral Director

Robert William Gerald Pilon passed away on Wednesday, May 1, 2019. You will be missed by all your family and friends.

Yvonne was an extremely loving and generous person who could always be counted on for her unique brand of humour. Throughout her life she committed many selfless acts and could always be counted on to lift the downtrodden, even when she was down herself. Please join us in Celebrating Yvonne’s Life at 2:00 pm on Saturday, May 11, 2019 in the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive.

Robert William Gerald Pilon

We will plant your “garden” mom and plant a tree or two in your name. The tears we can’t stop will keep them watered. Every time we hear the birds singing or the wind in the trees we will feel your spirit. We love you. We will always miss you. We will all be in your comforting embrace again. Say hi to nana for us. Love you mommy. In lieu of flowers, mom’s favourite charities were the BC Cancer Foundation and the RIH Hospital Auxiliary. Thank you to the nurses on 6 South high observation room 613 and in ICU for trying to keep mom comfortable. Thank you also to Schoening Funeral Service and to all those who have offered their support and sympathy. No funeral but a casual Celebration of Life will be held in the common room, first floor, 490 Lorne Street on Saturday, May 11, 2019 between 12:00 pm and 3:00 p.m.

Celebration of Life Nettie Makortoff 1942 - 2019

Sandra was born on July 30, 1945 in Vancouver, BC, but grew up and spent her life in Kamloops. Sandra was predeceased by her father and mother Bruce and Lillie-Belle Rinaldi and her sister Kathy Shook. Sandra leaves behind her two children Darrell (Kerri) and Leanna, her grandchildren Ethan and Becca, her siblings Bruce Rinaldi, Paul Rinaldi (Valerie), Judy Quesseth (Roland) and Brenda Glendinning (Dean), as well as many beloved nieces and nephews. Sandra was the eldest of six siblings and the heart of our family. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family in any capacity. She enjoyed gardening, camping, fishing with her grandson and crossword puzzles. At Sandra’s request, there will be no formal service. If friends and family wish, they may make a memorial donation to the charity of their choice. Condolences may be expressed at www.firstmemorialkamloops.com

The Celebration of Life for Nettie will be held at the Cottonwood Manor, 750 Cottonwood Ave., Kamloops, BC on Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com 250-554-2577
