BERNIER BRINGS PEOPLE’S PARTY MESSAGE TO REGION MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Maxime Bernier, leader of the fledgling People’s Party of Canada, arrived in Kamloops on Thursday to meet with the region’s riding associations as the candidate-selection process continues. KTW met the former Conservative MP at Kamloops Airport to discuss various issues: Q: You once said you were polling a little bit better than your party. Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod has won the last three elections. Are you looking to place or do you think you can win? A: Absolutely, I think we can win and we’ll do our best. You’re right about the polling. People, they don’t remember the name of our party and when they’re doing polling like that, they’re not asking, “Do you think you’ll vote for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals or for Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party.” They’re asking the question for which party will you vote in the election.

GROWING ROWS FOR KAMLOOPS FOOD BANK

Seven-year-old Carter Murphy helps dad James in planting the IPH Grow A Row bed on Wednesday during the Grow A Row Planting Day and Barbecue event at Home Hardware. Thirty-five business sponsors (their employees, friends and family) have pledged to grow produce that will be donated to the Kamloops Food Bank. Residents of Kamloops are urged to do likewise at home. All the information on the initiative can be found in a story online at kamloopsthisweek.com, under the Community tab, and on the Grow A Row Kamloops Facebook page.

TRIAL FOR TEENS BEHIND ALLEGED PLOT BOY AND GIRL CHARGED WITH PLANNING ASSAULT ON SCHOOL TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Two Kamloops teenagers accused of plotting to use weapons to attack students and staff at a city high school are scheduled to stand trial before Christmas. The two teens, a boy and a girl, are facing charges of conspiracy to commit assault with a weapon and uttering threats stemming from an alleged Feb. 7 plan targeting students, teachers and administrators. The teens’ identities cannot be published under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Any information that could identify them, including the name

of the school they are alleged to have planned to target, is also banned from publication. A separate publication ban covers the details of the allegations against the pair, each of whom maintained troubling social media profiles at the time of their arrests. The boy’s Instagram account was named for a notorious U.S. school shooting and included text and images referencing mass slayings. The girl’s Instagram profile featured a photo of what appears to be a school shooting in progress. Both teens have been released on bail on a number of strict conditions, including orders barring

them from possessing firearms and limiting the contact they can have with teachers. The alleged plot was not acknowledged publicly by police nor school district officials until nearly a week later, after KTW reported on it. After the initial story was published, school officials sent a letter to parents of students in the district, assuring them such threats are dealt with seriously. The teens are slated to stand trial together in Kamloops provincial court over four days beginning on Dec. 16. Lawyers will return to court on Oct. 7 for a pre-trial conference.

Thieves of Kamloops take note. That vehicle, bike or package you are coveting may lead the Mounties straight to you. The Kamloops RCMP has expanded its bait program, with bikes and packages being added to the vehicles long used to catch crooks. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said the items are scattered throughout the city in an attempt to lure thieves to steal them. “What the criminals are not aware of is that the vehicles, bikes and packages are equipped with GPS tracking, which monitors the speed, direction and location of the item,” Shelkie said. While thefts of vehicles and bicycles have long been an issue in any community, the rise of online shopping, in which packages are delivered to doorsteps — usually during the day when homes are unoccupied — has led to an uptick in online orders being pilfered. During the Victoria Day long weekend, Shelkie said, four people in Kamloops were arrested after allegedly stealing one of the items in separate incidences. Those arrested include a 55-year-old man, a 28-yearold man, a 23-year-old woman and a 22-year-old woman. “We want thieves to know that there are bait vehicles, bikes and packages on the streets of Kamloops,” Shelkie said. “Our hope is that, knowing they can be arrested, it will deter thieves from committing these crimes.”

THE BERNIER Q&A

THIS Q&A HAS BEEN EDITED DUE TO SPACE RESTRICTIONS. THE FULL Q&A IS ONLINE AT KAMLOOPSTHISWEEK.COM From A1

Europe — in France, in Belgium, they have huge challenges to integrate their immigrants. People are coming to Canada to celebrate the Canadian values and that’s OK, but yes, we have a position on immigration that is very different than the other political parties and I think we need to have this debate. And having this debate, I think, it’s in line with what Canadians also wish to have in this country.

People in my own riding are asking, “Max, I’ll support you, but what’s the name of your party again?” So that’s a challenge, the name. But when parties engage in debates, that will be a huge opportunity and that’s also why I’m travelling across the country and I’m campaigning. I started that last October and we have a platform. Our platform is ready. Q: Where does the People’s Party stand on the issue of climate change? Is human-caused climate change real. If so, what does the party plan to do about it? A: First of all, climate change is real. That’s a fact. The climate is always changing. If you look at our constitution, the environment, it’s a shared jurisdiction with provinces and some provinces have policies to fight climate change. Like my own province in Quebec, they have a cap- and-trade system and that’s why the carbon tax does not apply in Quebec because they have their own system to fight climate change. Our position on climate change is we won’t impose a carbon tax like the Liberals are doing right now. We won’t impose more regulations and giving subsidies to businesses like Andrew Scheer wants to do. We will let that file be managed by provinces at the provincial level. At the federal level, we won’t have any policies or any taxation on any regulation. But on the environment, we will have a platform. That platform will come within two or three weeks from now and it will deal with clear lakes, clear rivers. We want people to be able to fish in the river, to swim in the lake and it is too bad in 2019 that we still have lakes and rivers that are polluted. So we need to have a policy on that and we’re working on that. Q: Abortion laws in the U.S. Deep South have reignited the debate in Canada. What’s your personal opinion on abortion and, if elected, is the People’s Party going to re-open the debate? A: We won’t re-open the debate as a party because it is not a party policy to re-open the debate. That’s very clear. But if

People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier.

a member of Parliament [from the] People’s Party wants to table a bill on that subject, that’s his right as a member of Parliament. Every member of Parliament can table a private bill on any subject, so for us, the debate may be re-opened by a member of Parliament from the People’s Party. I know that [Conservative Leader] Andrew Scheer said he’s a pro-life guy, but he’ll do everything to stop his MP to table a bill on abortion. For me, I respect the right of an MP to table a bill on anything … If there’s a bill on abortion in the house, for sure it will be a free debate, it will be a free vote and everybody will be able to vote in line with their conscious or their morality. Q: Some of your policies, such as opposing extreme multiculturalism, have come under criticism as attracting people from the radical right ... A: No, no, I don’t agree with that. If you speak about immigration, 49 per cent of Canadians want fewer immigrants. Only six per cent of them wants more immigrants. Only six per cent. And all the other parties want more immigrants. What we want, we want fewer and we are respecting what Canadians want. Forty-nine per cent of them in the last poll, you can check that on the web. And we want to have a discussion about immigration and it’s important to have that discussion. I want this country to be like that in 25 years. I’m a proud Canadian. Look at what is happening in

Q: Local Conservative MP Cathy McLeod has said a vote for your party is a vote for the Liberals because you would be splitting the Conservative vote. What’s your response? A: Oh, I like that one (laughs). First of all, we’re not splitting the vote — the real conservative vote. Andrew Scheer is splitting the vote with the Liberals. The Conservative Party of Canada is a centrist and pragmatic party and Andrew Scheer right now is splitting the vote with the Liberals. He is bringing the Conservative Party of Canada in central left. We’re not splitting the vote from the right, he’s splitting the vote from the left, so the real conservative can vote with us. … I’m a real free market conservative. Q: The opioid crisis — 11 people per day die in Canada. What does the People’s Party plan to do to address the issue? A: I think it’s a provincial matter — provincial jurisdiction [is] health care — and we won’t change legislation on drugs concerning that. But it’s mostly a provincial matter and I’ll let provincial politicians deal with health care and the challenge that they have. It’s very important for us to respect the constitution and the division of power in our constitution. Q: Why did you leave the Conservative party after losing the leadership race to Andrew Scheer? A: They are intellectually and morally corrupt. I said that when I quit and why I’m saying that is they are not doing politics for all Canadians. They are doing politics to try and please every special interest group. They are not conservative anymore. If you’re conservative, you believe in free markets and free market is good for every industry. But for them, no, it is not good.

Fundraising efforts are underway to help the family of a Kamloops woman who died of carbon monoxide poisoning while camping with her daughter in the Shuswap during the Victoria Day long weekend. Lucille Beaurain died and nine-year-old daughter Micaela was injured after the pair was overcome with carbon monoxide on May 18 while in their tent at the private Sandy Point Beach campground. Mounties say a cooking pot used as a source of heat is believed to have been the source of the carbon monoxide poisoning. Beaurain was found deceased, while her daughter was airlifted to hospital. Micaela’s condition has improved this week as she has been moved out of the intensive-care unit at B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and has been speaking to father Chris Walton and other family members. An online fundraising campaign to help Micaela’s father with expenses has been launched. It can be found online at tinyurl.com/yxp4ymmv. In addition, the Chase Fire and Rescue Association is hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, May 25, to help raise money for the cause. The fire department will hold a car wash, dog wash, barbecue and bake sale in the parking lot of the Pharmasave drug store, 825 Shuswap Ave. in Chase,

from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A fundraising dinner will also be held, on June 4 at Walton’s workplace, On The Rocks Pub in Aberdeen, at Rogers Way and Hugh Allan Drive. The dinner will take place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. A $15 ticket will buy a burger and a beverage. Beaurain, who was a wellknown makeup artist and who also worked with children in a day care, is being remembered by friends in online posts. “Lucy was a sweetheart and such a loving mom to her babies.” reads one post, while another person added: “A fabulous woman with so much character and love.” Another person added: “I met her mother and an absolutely wonderful person. Her daughter goes to my child’s school as well. Although I didn’t know the family well, she was a great person and parent to her young daughter. I am praying hard for her daughter’s recovery.” Last weekend, an online fundraising effort raised $2,700 in less than two days, with the money helping Beaurain’s sister travel to Kamloops from Scotland. With the May long weekend kicking off the camping season, police are warning people not to use camp stoves inside poorly ventilated spaces. Technical Safety B.C. warns people to “never operate portable fuel-burning devices such as camp stoves, barbecues or generators indoors or in closed spaces.” Carbon monoxide, some-

times called the “invisible killer,” is colourless, odourless and tasteless, and can be fatal when inhaled. Unlike many other toxins and poisons, carbon monoxide doesn’t immediately irritate a person’s body or cause pain, so there is often no warning sign of its presence, according to a provincial awareness campaign. Initial symptoms can include dizziness, severe headaches, nausea, sleepiness, fatigue and disorientation. Carbon monoxide inhibits the blood’s capacity to carry oxygen and at high levels or with prolonged exposure can also cause chest pain, poor vision and difficulty thinking. Too high a concentration can cause convulsions, coma and death. At least 50 people in Canada die of carbon monoxide poisoning every year but there is no national database, Pierre Voisine, a director with the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs, said in 2017. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn that fuel-burning equipment such as camping stoves, camping heaters, lanterns and charcoal grills should never be used inside a tent, camper or other enclosed shelter. “Opening tent flaps, doors or windows is insufficient to prevent buildup of CO concentrations from these devices. When using fuel-burning devices outdoors, the exhaust should not vent into enclosed shelters,” according to a report.

COUN. ARJUN SINGH SAYS WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE TO MEET TARGETS JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A city councillor passionate about climate change said the city is dragging its heels on the issue. Coun. Arjun Singh told the city’s development, engineering and sustainability committee on Tuesday that the city is “failing” to meet targets outlined in the Sustainable Kamloops Plan, which he blamed on being insufficiently resourced. Looking ahead as the city works on a new Community Climate Action Plan, Singh wondered if more money will be needed or if goals should be more attainable. “Sustainable Kamloops progress, looking back at it, has been very disappointing to me,” he said. “And I think that most communities are facing the same thing. Canada has come down on greenhouse gas emissions. B.C.’s gone up a little bit. I think Kamloops has probably gone up. The question is, have we done that trajectory with meaningful actions, right?” Coun. Dieter Dudy, however, called Singh’s labelling of city efforts “harsh,” noting the city continues to work toward goals and leads among other municipalities. Getting the community on side, he said, is challenging. “I think you’re continuing to work

towards something, but not getting to it as quickly as you would have liked to, and you make adjustments along the way,” Dudy said. City staff noted many communities are falling short of climate action targets. They noted the issue was not top of mind for municipalities until the mid-2000s. Singh, however, said public urgency around the issue is increasing and stressed climate action goals differ from other goals at city hall, in that the issue cannot wait. “It’d be different if we had a goal for skateboard parks in town,” Singh said. “We said four and we only made two. That’s a different thing …. we’re talking about more extreme weather, we’re talking about more droughts, we’re talking about more wildfires. Those things don’t care if you don’t meet your goals. They’re just going to happen if you don’t meet them. That’s where I’m saying, how do we get to a point where we are now succeeding to meet those goals?” Singh brought to the committee meeting two climate action-related initiatives previously adopted in communities throughout the province and around the world: declaration of a climate emergency and support for David Suzuki’s Blue Dot campaign. Singh said he was approached by members of the community in support of the Blue Dot campaign, which aims to include

environmental rights — such as the right to clean air and drinking water, safe food and access to nature — in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. About 500 people in Kamloops have pledged support for the initiative. “The declarations are aspirational, but I also think that they signal to the community in a way that it’s something that we take very seriously,” Singh said. Coun. Sadie Hunter said that while she agreed the city should look at making a public declaration, she wanted more cohesion and alignment with the city’s strategic plan. Climate action is one of the city’s five strategic pillars and staff will be soon be bringing to council a list of actions to complete under those categories. The development, engineering and sustainability committee agreed to invite Blue Dot campaign organizers to city council to appear as a delegation at a later date. On the sustainability front, the city recently held the Green Living Expo and moved staff into a house in Riverside Park to promote sustainability initiatives. It is working on a long-term electric vehicle strategy, a single-use plastic bag ban bylaw and implementation of the BC Energy Step Code, among other green initiatives.

A TAX THAT KEEPS CANADIANS DIVIDED

T

he federal government’s carbon tax, a tax hated by many, is becoming a polarizing issue in Canada. Saskatchewan’s Court of Appeal recently ruled the tax is constitutional. Saskatchewan’s provincial government, under Premier Scott Moe, had argued the federal government was acting outside of its jurisdiction to impose the tax. While the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal decision, stated in a 155-page document, should settle the matter, this issue is far from over. The justices did not agree and the result was a 3-2 split, not a unanimous decision. Moe plans to continue Saskatchewan’s opposition and will appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada. Other provincial leaders have also taken issue with the federal carbon tax, including Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who has stated the carbon plan will result in an economic downturn, and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney. Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario and Saskatchewan are either challenging the carbon tax or have stated they intend to do so. With the recent gas price hikes we have seen in B.C., the carbon tax infuriates many drivers. We in British Columbia already have the highest gas prices in North America and many need a vehicle either to get to and from work or for the demands of their jobs. Because of this reality, anything adding to the cost of fuel will not go over well. Those who support the tax, including federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, have argued a carbon tax is a necessary and effective strategy in fighting climate change. Others have added that the tax is needed to change behaviour and to move us away from our dependence on fossil fuels. Whether this tax is a good idea or a bad idea, there is a huge problem when half the provincial governments in Canada are expressing their opposition and public support of the levy is low.

The reality of our plastic recycling routine exposed

I

t is time for an update on my most popular column of 2018, based on letters and social media responses. It was about plastic bags. My prediction early last year was that Victoria city council’s bold move to ban point-of-sale plastic bags from retail outlets would spread like wildfire across B.C. Pointless virtue-signalling on behalf of “the planet” is to today’s politicians what birthday cake is to a toddler, as we will see in the federal election campaign already upon us. The plastic bag ban is catching on with municipalities, but more slowly than expected. Some may have heeded my argument that prohibiting pointof-sale bags still leaves us with all the other soft plastic packaging that pours out from grocery and other retail stores, containing everything from frozen peas to deck screws. Councils are embracing the Victoria model, in which a minimum price is imposed for paper bags instead of the dreaded plastic. Retail businesses, burdened with high property taxes, love the government-imposed revenue stream that comes from charging 15 cents per paper bag. The fact that paper bag production is much more greenhouse gas-intensive than plastic is overlooked. My prediction that these bans would weaken existing plastic recycling programs was closer to the mark.

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In

VICTORIA In Victoria, a popular commercial collection service for soft and foam plastic has just been cancelled because the price paid no longer covers the cost. The key reason is that China has stopped accepting shipments of these commodities. Shipping containers full of plastic debris are piling up around North America, which can no longer offload its First World consumer problems to Asia. You may have heard that the Philippines recently threatened war against Canada over a bunch of shipping containers full of recyclables that were contaminated with used adult diapers, among other fragrant delights. No word on the greenhouse gas emissions all this shipping produces. According to multiple Canadian news reports in recent weeks, Chinese importers were employing their famous cheap labour to pick through the recyclables for valuable items and

burning the rest. “It was a charade,” a senior executive of Edmonton-based waste hauler GFL Environmental Services told the Globe and Mail. This ship it to Asia dodge is one way to explain the conclusions of a German study on plastic contamination in oceans. It found 90 per cent of it comes from 10 rivers in Asia and Africa, with the Yangtze in China being by far the worst. The rest, and most damaging, is mainly lost or abandoned commercial fishing gear. Then there was the Danish study that showed a cotton grocery bag has to be used more than 7,000 times to make it more environmentally sound than a plastic bag used once for groceries, once to line a wastebasket and then incinerated. B.C. recycling programs are also cracking down on glass and other marginal commodities. One of the most efficient items to recycle is newsprint and the B.C. government managed to make a mess of that by forcing newsprint producers into a broader system so they can subsidize uneconomic materials. And what have our governments done lately? They jumped on a new feel-good fad against plastic straws. The best solution to all of this is a functional waste system with recycling, and public education about cleaning and sorting materials. Don’t hold your breath. tfletcher@blackpress.ca Twitter: @tomfletcherbc

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

PM, LAKE SHOULD HELP SCHEFFEL Editor: Re: KTW’s online story of May 21 (‘Prime Minister Trudeau helps acclaim Terry Lake as Liberal candidate’): It is good to have our prime minister twice visit Kamloops this year, but visitations and publicity aside, it would also be good to have him reply to eight letters sent requesting support and some diplomatic intervention in getting Thompson Rivers University professor David Scheffel released from prison in

Slovakia, where he is facing questionable charges. At the very least, adherence by our government to its own guidelines should be diligently undertaken. While Scheffel remains a Dutch citizen, he does hold a Canadian permanent resident card, has spent the past 40 years of his life in Canada and has a Canadian family , including a wife and three children. The government should also fol-

low Canada’s guidelines on supporting human rights defenders Finally, as a permanent resident, one has the right to protection under Canadian law and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Perhaps Lake can also now propose some action for a former colleague who is innocent of the charges levelled against him in Slovakia. Ivan Somlai Kamloops

Editor: I would like to welcome Terry Lake aboard the Titanic 2.0. I have know Terry since he was mayor Kamloops. He has always been a straight forward, honest guy when I dealt with him. That is why I was left scratching my head when he announced his intention to

run for the Liberal Party of Canada in the Oct. 21 federal election. As a self-described fiscal conservative, Lake will need to turn a blind eye to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s outrageous, drunken sailor spending habits — all with our money. In addition, the prime minister has been unable to be truthful about his

meddling in the justice system and now looks to be repeating that with the Mark Norman case. I would offer Terry a free life vest and earplugs. That way, he might survive the iceberg of ticked-off voters the Liberal party is likely to hit in October. K. Wells Kamloops

WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE A HOSPITAL LIKE ROYAL INLAND LAKE HAS BOARDED A POLITICAL TITANIC Editor: All of us who live in Kamloops are fortunate our emergency hospital service is so great. Many thanks to the doctors who work in the emergency department at Royal Inland Hospital. Upon arrival at RIH recently, I moved very swiftly through departments and was seen by Dr. Swarts and Dr. R. Wong, who made a decision about what I had and who admitted me to the fourth floor. The nurses and students were always helping and at no time did I feel they were in a hurry. I really want to thank the food and kitchen staff as I was put on a liquid food diet — non-dairy soups that were very tasty and hot and beverages and pudding at each meal that were served cold. The servers realized I had limited use of my arms, so they helped me open each package. All of us are so fortunate to live in a beautiful place where people care for others. Thanks to those at RIH and to all my friends who belong to the best club, the Kamloops Duplicate Bridge Club. Jean D. Masini Pieralli Kamloops

THE ABORTION ISSUE WILL NEVER BE SETTLED Editor: Two things in editor Christopher Foulds’ column of May 22 (‘The abortion debate continues’) do not ring true: 1. That the abortion issue is “settled,” according to our Conservative MP, Cathy McLeod. It’s not settled and never will be.

All of our political leaders are craven cowards who won’t lift a finger to offer even a sliver of protection to babies in the womb. If someone stabs a ninemonths pregnant woman in the stomach with the express intent of killing the baby, and does so, they cannot be charged with murder.

Canada is one of the only countries on the planet with no legal prohibition whatsoever for taking the life of the unborn. 2. Foulds’ position that we “should never tell a woman what to do about her own body” is a red herring. There is another body involved, with a heartbeat, brainwaves and his

Plastic ban plan continues JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Consultations are underway, as the city looks at banning businesses from using plastic carryout bags. In mid-June, the city will mail out a survey to the approximate 1,500 business licence holders in Kamloops. It will also be distributed through the city’s business groups. “Very high level survey,” city sustainability services supervisor Glen Cheetham said. “It’ll be looking to understand the type of business they are, the type of category they do business in, looking at whether they have any provisions in place to reduce the distribution of plastic bags, whether they charge for them or whether they provide or support alternatives, like distributing paper bags or using some kind of reusable bag. “That survey is designed also to understand the concerns or impacts the business community have, give them a chance to let us know and we will try to bring them into the discussion and the analysis, when we present a report to council in July.”

The city’s development, engineering and sustainability committee met on Tuesday afternoon, at which an update was provided on the draft bylaw to ban plastic carry-out bags. Cheetham said initial engagements are underway, internally among the city’s bylaws and business licensing departments, but focused on businesses, to which the greatest impact will be felt. Meetings are also underway with the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association, North Shore Business Improvement Association and Kamloops Uptown Business Association. The Kamloops Accommodation Association and Kamloops Chamber of Commerce have asked to be included in the conversations. The Retail Council of Canada is requesting a harmonized provincial approach, as opposed to piecemeal regulations at the municipal level. Coun. Arjun Singh said the province won’t likely be making changes any time soon and noted “more support than pushback” to date for the pending SPONSORED SPONSORED CONTENT CONTENT SPONSORED CONTENT

ban in Kamloops. Cheetham said the city is using the City of Victoria’s bylaw as a model, in addition to looking at what several other municipalities are doing. “The Victoria bylaw and others have focused on what is basically a carry-out bag, which is really a bag that is used for the purpose of transporting items purchased by a customer or to deliver to a customer from a business and to be used for carrying retail items or packaged takeout, delivery of food,” Cheetham said. “It’s really a bag with handles. They don’t, however, include bags without handles, bags for poultry or for bulk items.” Singh asked what Victoria has spent on the initiative, having been sued and also on an extensive marketing campaign. That information was not available. The draft bylaw will come to council on July 9, at which time council will provide input on the timeline, implementation strategy and engagement. A phase-in period is expected. Further engagement meetings will follow, after business consultations.

HOLMES IS WHERE THE If you were to think of one attribute that is the most important to you in a partner, what would it be? I understand it is near impossible to think of just one thing as there are many traits necessary for a lasting, meaningful relationship. That being said, I think it can be narrowed down to a couple important qualities: chemistry and compatibility. The only way to know if chemistry and compatibility are possible is to meet face to face. You need to do this. I have spoken to men and women who have grown tired of falling into the same repeated cycle. They see a head-turner and are immediately drawn in to the game. I am not saying someone who is drop-dead gorgeous with the perfect jawline and symmetrical face can’t have many other redeeming qualities, but it’s interesting how fast that outward beauty disappears when other character flaws emerge. Here are the top seven personality traits that can make someone who was beautiful to begin with suddenly be a big turnoff: 1. Emotional instability: While people say they want someone who can show their emotions, this does not mean a person who becomes wildly emotional with verbal or manipulative tendencies when they show signs of dramatic responses to everything. 2. Rudeness: As soon as a date shows any sign of a rude comment

— either to a server or about someone — chances are they just went from a 10 to a 2. 3. Self-absorption: When you sit down with that beautiful person and they only talk about themselves and don’t ask any questions of you, or they are continually checking their hair or biceps, it becomes apparent they have a bigger crush on themselves than on you. 4. Too accommodating: While this is probably a better trait than rudeness or self-absorption, people really do like someone who can think for themselves and who have an opinion. Those who are a bit passive and often respond with, “Whatever you want” or “It doesn’t matter to me” are not attractive to their dates. So it’s still possible to be strong and kind and not be a pushover. 5. Entitlement: Self-confidence is great, but too much of it can be seen as cocky or narcissistic — and acting

like the world owes you something is a trait nobody finds attractive. 6. Too clingy: When a relationship is new and you are in the honeymoon phase, it’s natural to want to be together all the time. In reality, people need balanced relationships. Those who continue to “need’ to be together or show desperate clingy jealous habits will no doubt cause the partner to run for the hills. 7. Low self-esteem: While it’s great to have a partner to pick you up when you are down, there is a line between a bit of a funk and always needing reassurance or compliments due to insecurity. Many times, attractive people can be very insecure. I have had people tell me the leading cause of the end of a relationship is because their partner can’t be strong on their own. Confidence is attractive. Imagine you met someone who is a 7 solely on a physical attraction scale. If they possessed few, if any, of the above traits, they could quickly become a 10. The most important thing is how your partner sees you. That’s why you need to meet in person. The good news is I am the first person you will meet, so contact me by email at holmes@ wheretheheartis.ca and that let me find someone with whom you will have chemistry and compatibility.

If students could plan the future of downtown ... JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Valleyview secondary students were at Kamloops City Hall on Wednesday, making pitches to city staff. Staff wanted to know how youth envision downtown. Whether you’re eight or 80 years old, city planner Jason Locke explained: “It’s important that their voice is represented in this process so, as planners, we are creating a community and neighbourhood of the downtown for all ages.” Two weeks ago, Locke attended Maria Paccagnella’s Grade 11 socials studies class — which is focused on government, law and social justice — and presented work done on the downtown plan. This past Wednesday, students visited city hall to present, with PowerPoint, their own ideas. They met Mayor Ken Christian and, for many of them, it was their first time in council chambers. One student said city hall was smaller than expected. Another’s parent works for the city, so it was no big deal. When it came time to present, one student said she was nervous — oral presentations are not usually favoured by students, let alone when they are done at city hall. Overall, Paccagnella said, her students surpassed expectations, doing better than their dry run in class. “They stepped it up,” she said. Presentations included ideas for entertainment, beautification, infrastructure and transportation. One student suggested more frequent transit, having missed the bus downtown to

make her presentation. More music downtown — perhaps a downtown music festival — was among desired entertainment options, while one student suggested a roller rink in the former Value Village location, which could include arcade games and provide a place for teens to hangout. “It’s just something new,” student Genevive Clark said. Students also suggested adding more garbage and recycling cans to clean up downtown, in addition to more green space, pedestrian access and help for those living on the streets. Last summer, the city undertook a pilot project with a pedestrian plaza on Fourth Avenue. Students like the idea and Locke said feedback was consistent with what the city has previously heard. “What surprised me most was how astute they were and how in touch they were with what makes successful downtowns,” Locke said, noting the feedback will be

included in the plan. Paccagnella said it was the first time she has taken a class to city hall. Now that the students got a taste, they want more engagement from the city. Calling the visit a big step, students stressed the city has work to do in reaching out to youth. Locke said youth are hard to reach in terms of city engagement because they do not typically attend open houses. He said the city has learned in the past 15 to 20 years to access input beyond such typical events. Online tools — such as the Let’s Talk website — allow the city to be more creative. In addition, planners began visiting classrooms during the past few years, including while working on KamPlan. The city’s junior council also provides input. Youth provided more suggestions for reaching out, such as more in-person engagement and through their favoured online platforms: Snapchat and Instagram.

The old Turbo gas station building in North Kamloops will be demolished to pave way for a development in its place, the latest in a string of projects that are transforming the Tranquille corridor. Kamloops council has approved issuance of a development permit for a five-storey building on the property at 742 Tranquille Rd. (just south of the Fortune/Tranquille/Eighth intersection) that will feature 28 strata residential units — three studio, 12 one-bedroom

and 13 two-bedroom — on the top four floors, in addition to commercial space on the ground level. The city wants buildings fronting Simcoe Avenue to create a landmark as part of its North Shore Town Centre plan. The building will feature stone and extensive glazing and foster a pedestrian-friendly environment. “This is a key location as far as form and character is concerned,” said Marvin Kwiatkowski, the city’s development director. Coun. Arjun Singh praised city staff and the developer for the project. He

O’Reilly wants tax exemptions revamped JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops councillor wants to revamp revitalization propertytax exemptions, in order to make them similar on both sides of the river and include commercial development.

COUN. MIKE O’REILLY

Coun. Mike O’Reilly said current tax incentives for development in the North Shore and Kamloops Central (downtown) business

improvement association areas are different, with a scoring matrix required in the NSBIA, but not in the KCBIA. “It’s trying to make an even playing field,” O’Reilly said. O’Reilly said the incentives, which typically offer up to a 10-year tax break on the municipal portion of property taxes, are working “phenomenally well” downtown and in North Kamloops when it comes to residential development. However, he pointed to the last office building constructed downtown — the Kelson Building at Victoria Street and Third Avenue, which was built 25 years ago — as a sign incentives are needed to give the green light to developers. “We’re one of only two municipalities in British Columbia that

do not include commercial,” O’Reilly said. The city aims to review the North Shore

tax exemption when it undergoes planning in that area, though the planning depart-

ment is currently swamped reviewing residential suites and looking at the future

A quartet of Thompson Rivers University trades students are off to a national competition in Nova Scotia next week after winning provincial gold in April. Six students from TRU took home gold or silver medals at this year’s Skills Canada Provincial Competition in Abbotsford, where more than 600 students from Grade 6 through post-secondary competed in 59 categories ranging from aerospace and automotive to robotics and welding. The four first-place finishers — Maik Stuermer in carpentry, Calvin Skjeie in heavy equipment service, Jordan Brown in plumbing and Aidan Gow in welding — will showcase their talents and be tested against their peers from across the country as they vie for the honour of becoming the best in their chosen discipline. Eligible winners from the Skills Canada BC competitions will compete as Team BC in the 2019 national competition, which will be held from May 27 to May 30 in Halifax. With the next World Skills competition being held this fall in Kazan, Russia, the national contest could be a stepping stone to the international stage for any of TRU’s contenders.

approved by the School District 93 board of education back in 2015, Jodi Lavigne, president of the school’s parent advisory council, told KTW. School District 93 is the Conseil scolaire francophone public school district in B.C. The additional grade is being implemented now as the school has been able to procure a new portable for the property with funds from SD93. Lavigne said all schools in SD93 are experiencing growth and the district can only accommodate so many new portables at a time. A Grade 8 teacher will be hired to teach math and science exclusively. The school currently has 11 Grade 7 students, all of whom will now have the option to continue their education without having to transfer to another school in Kamloops. “There are many benefits to having another year at Collines-d’or — continuity of their language, smaller classes, enhanced opportunities for leadership,” Lavigne said. Parents advocated for the additional grade, which is one step closer to their goal of having a full K-12 francophone school in Kamloops, Lavigne said. Collines-d’or rents space from School District 73, which owns the Oak Hills property. Lavigne said School District 93 has been looking to purchase a

larger space for years. Having opened its doors in September of 2001 with only 10 students, École Collinesd’or today has a student body of 87 — a 50 per cent increase in the last 10 years. Lavigne said École Collines-d’or is often assumed to be a private or French immersion school, but it is in fact a public Frenchspeaking school. SD93 has its own board of trustees and oversees all the public francophone schools in the province. The school district has 41 schools in B.C. and nearly 6,000 students. SD93 has seen a 25 per cent growth in the last five years, Lavigne said. SD93 was founded in response to Section 23 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which covers the rights of Canadian citizens to have their child educated in the official language that is considered the minority language in the province. In B.C., students of SD93 classes must have at least one parent who has French as their first language or who received their primary school instruction in French (excluding French immersion). However, a student who attended a francophone school outside B.C., but has English-speaking parents, would still be eligible to be taught in the school district. For more information on the Conseil scolaire francophone public school district (SD93), go online to csf.bc.ca.

LAKE GETS A LIFT FROM THE PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU VISITS KAMLOOPS AND INTRODUCES THE LOCAL LIBERAL CANDIDATE TERRY LAKE AT TUESDAY’S NOMINATION MEETING

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS KTW EDITOR editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Terry Lake says climate change is indeed a ballot box issue, which is one of the reasons he has decided to jump back into politics by securing the Liberal nomination in this year’s federal election. Lake cited climate change, the ongoing opioid overdose crisis and the economy as issues that drew him to joining Team Trudeau, as the many red, white and black signs proclaimed amid the crowd of about 300 supporters who filled a room at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre on Tuesday night. Joining Lake at what resembled a pep rally was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, making his second visit to Kamloops this year, his first being a January stop for a fundraising luncheon and town hall meeting. With Lake next to him and with a large media contingent recording the upbeat scene, Trudeau cited various accomplishments of his government’s near four years in power and lauded Lake as a candidate. “For all the cynicism and challenges in politics we see these days, it takes good people to keep stepping up … you know Terry, we know Terry. He’s an incredibly strong worker, a strong voice for the community. He’s been a minister of health, a minister of environment, but he has always been an extraordinarily strong voice for Kamloops-Thompson River-Cariboo.” While Steve Powrie garnered the most votes ever by a local Liberal candidate in 2015 (21,215), NDP candidate Bill Sundhu did even better, with 21,466 votes, splitting the left of centre vote and allowing Conservative MP Cathy McLeod to win re-election with 24,595 votes.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was in Kamloops on Tuesday to introduce Terry Lake as the party’s candidate in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo in the Oct. 21 federal election. About 300 Liberal supporters gathered at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre in Aberdeen for the event.

Election will come down to stark choices, says Lake From A16

But Lake sees a difference brewing in the Oct. 21 election, which will be held exactly five months from Lake’s nomination meeting. “I think it’s just the natural progression that we see, the changes that are happening in our community of Kamloops, but also in communities around Kamloops,” Lake said. “It’s a different world today and people are worried about the things that the Liberal party stand for.” “We’ve got the lowest unemployment rate in 40 years, since the last Liberal MP represented this riding,” Lake said, referring to Len Marchand. Lake was asked about the Liberal/ NDP vote split in 2015 and what he would tell NDP supporters this year. “We live in a democracy and I think people should always vote what their passion is and what their belief system is,” he said. “But I think it’s going to come down, honestly, to a stark choice between the Conservatives and the Liberal Party of Canada. And there could not be more of a contrast in that choice.” He cited the fact the Conservatives do not have a plan to address climate change and claimed the Conservatives believe “government shouldn’t have anything to do with social programs” to allow middle-class families to get ahead. “There’s criticism that’s been levelled at this government because governing is hard … “In a world where we’ve got so many changes, so much populism and rightwing rhetoric that’s flying around the entire world, I think Canada needs to be a safe harbour for progressive, forward-looking policies.”

Lake said he has examined the issue closely and is convinced there was no wrongdoing. “People were trying to do the very best to preserve jobs, to make sure all avenues were explored before decisions were made, and there was a difference of opinion,” he said. “You know, I’ve had differences of opinion with my former leaders. We deal with those behind doors and then we come out as a team for the betterment of our constituents.” Lake said he wants to take his experience as B.C.’s environment and health minister and use that in Ottawa on those issues. ABOUT THAT DAY JOB Lake said he will take a leave of absence in the fall from his job as vicepresident of corporate social responsibility at Hexo, a Quebec-based cannabis producer. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Liberal candidate Terry Lake.

He referenced Ontario Premier Doug Ford and cuts to health care in Ontario and said an Andrew Scheer-led government concerns him. “What concerns me most about the possibility of an Andrew Scheer government is the complete abdication of responsibility for taking action on climate change, for helping Canadians deal with an overdose epidemic that is still claiming about six or seven lives every day across this country,” Lake said. “And somehow they think that it’s just a matter of personal responsibility. “They don’t understand the challenge that people face.” On the SNC Lavalin controversy,

BEHIND THE SCENES Henry Pejril is Lake’s campaign manager, while Mike Henry is campaign chair. ELSEWHERE ON THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM Maxine Bernier, leader of the fledgling People’s Party of Canada, was scheduled to be in Kamloops on Thursday in advance of a candidate reveal for ridings in the ThompsonOkanagan region.

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The prime minister was at city hall on Tuesday afternoon, prior to attending that evening’s acclamation of Terry Lake as Liberal Party of Canada candidate for KamloopsThompson-Cariboo. Prime Minister

Justin Trudeau met with Mayor Ken Christian, in addition to provincial and federal ministers — Jonathan Wilkinson (fisheries, oceans and Canada Coast Guard), Carla Qualtrough (public services and procurement) Joyce Murray (digital and Treasury Board president), Mike Farnworth (public safety and solicitor general) — area First Nations and Red Cross personnel. Christian said the group reviewed the 2017 and 2018 wildfires and had a briefing from BC Wildfire Service, intended to provide lessons for the future. “I had an opportunity to talk to [Trudeau] about the role of a host community, some of the experience we have had,” Christian said. On the mayor’s agenda was how the Canadian Armed Forces are dispatched in an emergency situation. Additionally, the two discussed the Interior University Research Coalition, a tri-university partnership between Thompson Rivers University, University of British Columbia Okanagan and University of Northern B.C. to conduct emergency-management research in the Interior. Between 35 and 40 police officers were also on hand as part of the prime minister’s security detail. Christian said the top of his federal requests relate to infrastructure, the Stuart Wood cultural centre, police and railroads. The mayor said Tuesday’s meeting was not a campaign event, but a specific business meeting related to emergency management. Christian also had a chance to meet with Trudeau when the prime minister visited Kamloops for a fundraising luncheon and town hall meeting.

hompson Rivers University will bestow honorary degrees on five people during the convocation ceremonies, which will take place from June 5 to June 7. An honorary degree is the highest form of recognition offered by TRU and awarded for demonstrated excellence in the fields of public affairs, the sciences, arts, humanities, business, law and philanthropy. “The conferring of these degrees recognizes the tremendous contributions these individuals make to society, but it’s also an opportunity to inspire our graduating students as they leave this university and go on to contribute to our world,” TRU president and vice-chancellor Brett Fairbairn said. Each honorary degree recipient will speak at the convocation ceremonies. This year’s recipients and the respective ceremonies they will attend are: • Charles Mossop, Doctor of Letters, addressing the School of Business and Economics convocation on Wednesday, June 5, at 2:30 p.m. Mossop’s passion for the value of internationalization helped lay the foundations of B.C.’s international education system and make TRU a leading destination for students from around the world. In 1983, Mossop became co-ordinator of what was a twoperson International Education department at then-Cariboo College. Over time, he increased faculty involvement in field schools abroad, as well as international student interest in TRU, developed specialized and culturally sensitive support for international students — a model adopted by other institutions across Canada — and helped establish a provincial postsecondary network on international education. In 2014, the BC Council for

International Education awarded Mossop the International Education Lifetime Achievement Award. • Dr. Pauline van den Driessche, Doctor of Letters, addressing the Faculty of Science convocation on Thursday, June 6, at 10 a.m. Van den Driessche, professor emeritus in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria, is an internationally renowned mathematician whose research continues to play a significant role in global health. This includes her work in mathematical epidemiology, the application of mathematical modelling in the study and management of infectious diseases. Van den Driessche is recognized for her devotion to teaching and mentoring countless young academics throughout her career at UVic. She is the author of approximately 240 peer-reviewed publications and was named a Thompson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher in 2014, as one of 99 of the world’s most influential mathematicians. • Karl deBruijn, Doctor of Letters, addressing the joint convocation of the School of Trades and Technology and the School of Nursing on Thursday, June 6, at 2:30 p.m. DeBruijn is an educator, community leader and philanthropist who has devoted his career to the development of education in the Kamloops area. His contribution to community and service includes nearly four decades with School District 73, first as a teacher, then as a principal, followed by more senior roles, including CEO and superintendent of schools before his retirement in 2016. DeBruijn’s community leadership has included being chair of the TRU board of governors and the 2017 Special Olympics BC Summer Games and as past president of the Kamloops YMCAYWCA board.

• Tantoo Caroline Rose Cardinal, Doctor of Letters, addressing the Faculty of Arts convocation on Friday, June 7, at 10 a.m. Cardinal is Métis and a celebrated actress of stage, screen and television. Throughout her career, Cardinal’s strong portrayals and determined pursuit of truth have helped break barriers in the onscreen representation of Indigenous people. She has appeared in blockbusters such as Legends of the Fall, Dances with Wolves and Black Robe and in recurring roles in television series such as Blackstone, Arctic Air and North of 60. Cardinal’s support for the growth and development of Indigenous performing arts has led to national recognition, including the Order of Canada in 2009 and a Canadian Screen Award for lifetime achievement. • Mike Wiegele, Doctor of Laws, addressing the joint convocation of the Faculty of Adventure, Culinary Arts and Tourism and the Faculty of Law on Friday, June 7, at 2:30 p.m. Wiegele is a ski coach, guide and entrepreneur who has made significant contributions to the advancement of the backcountry skiing industry in Canada. In 1989, he established the Canadian Ski Guide Association, which became the industry standard for training ski guides. A year later, he approached the University of Calgary to conduct research into avalanche safety, which led to the development of many of the protocols in place in the industry today. Wiegele has been a strong supporter of TRU Adventure Studies programs, hosting courses at his Blue River heli-skiing operation. His honours include induction into the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame, the Banff Sports Hall of Fame and the Canadian Rockies Ski Racing Hall of Fame.

PROVINCIAL NEWS

Oil companies may be called to testify under provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gas price probe ROB SHAW

VANCOUVER SUN

Major oil companies will be called to testify in front of B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independent energy regulator as part of its inquiry into why Metro Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gasoline prices are the highest in North America. But the timing of the probe will mean the motoring public wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get answers until the end of summer. Premier John Horgan, who has faced pressure to act on skyrocketing gas prices in recent weeks, has released the terms of reference into an investigation that he asked the BC Utilities Commission to launch into gas prices. Some Metro Vancouver gas stations were charging $1.72 a litre on Tuesday, compared to $1.29 in Toronto and $1.17 in Calgary. Prices in Kamloops were at about $1.30 a litre two weeks ago, when they suddenly spiked to $1.50 per litre. This week, most stations are back at around the $1.30 per litre mark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rapid increase in gas prices in B.C. is alarming, increasingly out of line with the rest of Canada, and people in B.C. deserve answers,â&#x20AC;? Horgan said. The commission will have the power to demand oil companies testify to explain their prices and profit margins. The independent regulator has â&#x20AC;&#x153;all the powers, rights and privileges of a judge of the Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;? to demand companies appear for questioning, compel testimony under oath and inspect documents, according to its guide for participants. The big oil companies have been largely silent on the jump in gasoline prices in B.C. and rarely comment publicly on how prices are set or who profits. Most major oil and gas companies contacted by Postmedia did not return requests for comment. Industry associations representing those companies also sidestepped questions, other than to confirm the commission had asked for contact information for its member companies. The utilities commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terms of reference for its inquiry include examining market factors that affect gas

This KTW file photo shows a rather expensive litre of gas as staff at the Aberdeen Chevron were in the midst of changing the price on the sign.

prices in B.C., investigating whether price fixing and gouging are behind sudden gas price fluctuations, explaining the difference between the refining and retail margins in B.C. and those in the rest of Canada, and reviewing how other governments have handled the issue. But the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline of Aug. 30 will mean the busy summer months, when gasoline prices are often highest, will be over before the public sees any answers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Premier John Horgan is trying to stall his way through the summer,â&#x20AC;? said B.C. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a bad joke because it refused to allow any discussion of taxes, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to report out at the end of the summer.â&#x20AC;? However, the commission â&#x20AC;&#x153;may not inquire into the effects of provincial enactments or policy on gasoline and diesel prices in British Columbia,â&#x20AC;? according to Horganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terms. Wilkinson has called on B.C. to lower some of the 34 cents a litre in provincial taxes col-

lected on every litre of gas in Vancouver. Alberta supplies, directly or indirectly, more than 80 per cent of the gasoline and diesel used in B.C. Wilkinson called on Horgan to â&#x20AC;&#x153;make peaceâ&#x20AC;? with new Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and stop opposing the proposed expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, which Alberta has said could increase the flow of refined gasoline to B.C. Kenney has also threatened to use his provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;turn off the tapsâ&#x20AC;? legislation that would restrict the flow of oil and gasoline to B.C., but the Horgan government is in court in Alberta seeking to challenge that law. B.C. has admitted in court that there is no other infrastructure in place for the province to obtain gasoline because it does not have the rail, port or pipeline capacity in place to get large shipments of gasoline from the United States or elsewhere.

GLOBAL VIEWS AND NATIONAL NEWS

Attacking Iran will result in an unwinnable way

After a long debate, the highest levels of the military could not forecast a way in which things would end favourably for the United States,” said Richard Clarke, counter-terrorism adviser in the White House under three administrations. That was back in 2007 and he was talking about the Pentagon’s attempts to come up with a winning strategy for a U.S. war with Iran. No matter how they gamed it, the U.S. lost. Two years later, in 2009, U.S. Marine Gen. Tony Zinni warned that any attack on Iran would lead inexorably to boots on the ground. “If you liked Iraq and Afghanistan, you’ll love Iran,” he added drily, In 2011 Meir Dagan, former head of Mossad, Israel’s national intelligence agency, said an attack on Iran was “the stupidest idea” he had ever heard. This was all back in the days when various people in the West were talking far too loosely about war with Iran because the Iranian president at the time was

GWYNNE DYER World

WATCH a loud-mouthed extremist named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Then he lost the 2013 election and was replaced by a moderate reformer, Hassan Rouhani. Rouhani stopped all the aggressive talk and, in 2015, he cut a deal with most of the world’s major powers to put Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions, if any, on ice for at least 15 years. Everything went quiet until another loud-mouthed extremist, U.S President Donald Trump, tore up the 2015 agreement and began talking about war with Iran. He doesn’t necessarily mean it. What Trump says on Mondays,

Wednesdays and Fridays are things he often recants on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. (To make matters even more inscrutable, his threat to bring about “the end of Iran” was made last Sunday — and there are no rules for Sundays.) But Trump is surrounded by people who sound like they really are looking for a fight with Iran. To be fair, Vice-President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are probably telling themselves that plausibly terrifying U.S. threats will suffice to make Iran crumble. Only National Security Adviser John Bolton understands the threats will cause Iranian reactions that can then be used as an excuse for an actual attack — and he’s just fine with that. So, is the scenario of a U.S. attack on Iran, with or without Saudi Arabian and Israeli help, still as hopeless a project as it was 10 years ago? It’s not hopeless at all if you just drop nuclear weapons on the 20 biggest Iranian cities. That’s not enough to cause a nuclear winter, but quite enough to kill between

one-quarter and one-half of Iran’s 80-million people. If you do that (and either the United States or Israel could do it single-handedly), the Iranians will never come back for a re-match. But neither the United States nor Israel is going to do that. It would make them literally the enemies of all mankind. And short of doing that, there are no good options for winning a war against Iran because (as in all asymmetric conflicts) the Iranians don’t need a winning strategy. All they have to do is not lose. The United States could certainly bomb all of Iran’s military and industrial facilities to rubble. But this would not force the Iranians to surrender, nor would it prevent Iran’s sea-skimming missiles, fired from mobile launchers anywhere along 3,000 kilometres of coastline, from stopping all the tankers going into and out of the Persian Gulf. Those tankers carry about 20 per cent of the world’s oil. So, in the end, it would have to be boots on the ground, just as Zinni said — but the ground war is also unwinnable. Iran’s army is about the same

size as that of the United States, but it could quickly expand to 10 times that size with volunteers, just as it did during the U.S.backed Iraqi invasion of Iran that led to a war in the 1980s. The Iranian volunteers would be poorly armed and they would die in droves, but if only one American soldier died for every 10 Iranians, the U.S. public would quickly reach its maximum tolerance level for American casualties. It would be a high-speed replay of the Vietnam War and the U.S. would lose again. This past Tuesday, they wheeled out acting US. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan to comfort the public. To paraphrase, he said it’s OK. Don’t panic. The grown-ups are still in charge. Our timely threats have deterred the Iranians from doing the evil things they were planning to do (or, rather, that we said they were planning to do) and there’s no danger of a war. I’d really like to believe him, but, actually, nobody’s in charge. Read more Gwynne Dyer columns online at kamloopsthisweek.com by clicking on the Opinion tab.

No vegan food leads to human-rights complaint ADAM KNAUFF OF ONTARIO WAS FIGHTING FOREST FIRES NEAR WILLIAMS LAKE IN 2017 THE CANADIAN PRESS

An Ontario firefighter alleges his human rights were violated when he was not provided sufficient vegan food while battling a massive blaze in British Columbia. Adam Knauff has filed a complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario against his employer, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, over his treatment and subsequent suspension while fighting a fire near Williams Lake in 2017. “The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry discriminated against me and failed to accommodate my sincerely held ethical beliefs (creed) when it failed to provide me with food that accommodated my personal commitment to ethical veganism, and then disciplined me and suspended me because I attempted to assert my right to accommo-

dation of that sincerely held ethical belief,” he wrote in his application to the tribunal. The ministry, in its response, denied Knauff’s allegations of discrimination and human rights violations. The case centres on whether veganism is a form of creed — the definition of which was expanded by the Human Rights Tribunal in 2015 to include nonsecular beliefs. Knauff, based in Kenora, Ont., has worked with the ministry since 2008 and is often dispatched outside the province. “I am an ethical vegan in that I not only follow a vegan diet, but I extend the philosophy of non-consumption of animal products to all other areas of my life,” he wrote. “I do not think that humans have the moral right to oppress other beings, or to cause them pain and suffering.” Knauff, now 40, arrived in B.C. on July

15, 2017, and was one of about 1,000 firefighters battling a massive forest fire — working 14 to 16 hours per day. About 10,000 homes were evacuated in Williams Lake and the only store open was a Tim Hortons that police were helping run, he wrote in his

complaint. Knauff said the ministry had long known about his dietary constraints and that he had also filled out a standard food information form for the trip. “On some days during my deployment to William’s Lake, I was not provided with any

food that was vegan or not otherwise contaminated with animal products, and therefore forced to go hungry,” he wrote. On July 16, he ate salad and side dishes. The next day, he wrote, there were no vegan meals, so he had plain bagels and coffee

from Tim Hortons. The day after that, he said was given “beans, oatmeal and fruits.” “I know that I should not have sworn … but I was starving, exhausted, humiliated and defeated,” he wrote. “I had reached my breaking point.” But the real break-

ing point came the next day when he picked up his lunch, where, he alleged, half of the food was non-vegan. He poured it out in front of food staff and said, repeatedly, “this isn’t vegan.” That’s when his supervisor sent him home.

The fundamentals of discovery at the Bay of Fundy JANE CASSIE

SPECIAL TO KTW

travelwriterstales.com

I

’m not surprised to find out that The Bay of Fundy is one of North America’s seven wonders. The 320-kilometre-long waterway divides the province of Nova Scotia from New Brunswick and is home to rare whales, semi-precious minerals and the world’s highest tides. The amount of daily water that goes in and out of this geological wonder actually surpasses the combined flow of all the freshwater rivers on our planet. Yes, this gem has earned the accolades. Although we could join others and kayak the island-speckled bays where seals and porpoises hang out, or hop on a zodiac ride for whale of a time, we decide to view the craggy coastlines, dramatic rock faces, and other local treasures while being grounded to Mother Earth. Here are three of our favourite tromping spots. The Fundy Trail Parkway is a 2,559-hectare parkway in New Brunswick — a short drive from the quaint seaside town of St. Martins. A 19 km winding roadway that weaves over the rugged terrain and loops around the picturesque coast is host to 20 scenic outlooks — each one is steeped with visual rewards. Some boast vistas of steep-sided cliffs, others scalloped beaches and many with picnic tables where you can relax and drink in the beautiful backdrop of Fundy Bay. Over our three-hour visit, we cling to a cabled ladder that descends the steep hillside near Fuller Falls, jostle over an 84 metre suspension bridge that spans Salmon River, check out the interpretive centre where there’s an overview of this area’s once-thriving, long-gone logging community and hike a few trails that loop around this lovely landscape. And while we’re led through second growth stands, across boardwalks and bridges and down steps to expansive sandy strips, heartier hikers choose to hoof the Fundy Footpath, a jaunt that’s less travelled but acclaimed by Explore magazine to be one of the 50 best hikes in the world.

BRENT CASSIE PHOTO Standing on the ocean floor during low tide is a must-do adventure at Hopewell Cape Rocks in New Brunswick. The coastline pathways throughout the 320-kilometre stretch of waterway between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick offer world-class exploring opportunities.

This challenging walk-in-the-wilderness hugs the coastline and threads through this pretty parkway all the way to our next must-see, the neighbouring Fundy National Park. Calling all campers, beachcombers and birdwatchers. This recreation icon offers something for everyone, especially us hikers.

Twelve kilometres of shoreline rims this verdant oasis and 120-kilometres of trails meander through it — ranging in everything from easy loops to a 50-kilometre pulse-raiser. With a yearning to traipse by a waterfall (25 to choose from) we go with the most accessible one in the park, a 1.5-km circular route to Dickson Falls.

A lengthy boardwalk stretches out beyond a Fundy Shore lookout and leads us through a Hansel and Gretel-feel forest. Instead of breadcrumbs, like in the childhood fairytale, interpretive signs direct our way. Our final reward? No, not to a candy-coated witch’s house, but those beautiful cascading falls. Although not nearly as whimsical, our second jaunt for the day, Matthews Head, is a trail that combines the park’s natural beauty and cultural history. From Herring Cove Road, we wander through a forest grove to an old wagon road where there are remnants of a nineteenth century homestead. Up until 1974 this area was known as the local potato farm and experiments of the crops led to the Shepody potato, one of preferred varieties that we’ve recently enjoyed beneath our poutine. Next up is Hopewell Rocks. Be sure to check tidal charts before venturing to this favourite Fundy haunt. It’s located at the farthest end of this massive bay, where you’ll witness the greatest tidal fluctuation. If you come at high tide bring your kayak, as the water level can be five storeys high. If you arrive at low tide, this empty basin boasts spectacular sandstone formations that have been carved by the tidal action over thousands of years. An informative visitors centre provides us with more in-depth explanation and overview and scaffolding-like stairs take us from the upper viewing platform to the sandy ocean floor below. From, here we gaze up at eroded cliffs, wander beneath rocky archways, pose in front of animal-shaped sea stacks and stroll the two-kilometre long sandy beach. It’s hard to believe that after the tide comes in, all of these amazing monoliths will be submerged, with only their green flower tops visible. It’s even harder to imagine that this happens every six hours. But then again, this is the awe-inspiring Bay of Fundy and one of North America’s seven wonders.

Emotional aftermath of soldier’s death staged in Brothers Paul Rancourt’s play is being presented as part of the Hydra Performing Arts Festival, on at TRU until June 1 SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

play by a Kamloops veteran and actor/director seeks to tell the story of how the death of a soldier overseas can wreak havoc back here at home. Brothers is a play written and directed by Paul Rancourt that will soon to be presented as part of the Hydra Performing Arts Festival being held at Thompson Rivers University. The audience is never really told who the soldier is or where specifically where he died, but it will see the effects of his death trickle down through people close to him — his father, fiancée and best friend. The source material for the play comes from interviews with those who have experienced the horrors of war — friends and fellow veterans of Rancourt, who served 12 years in the Canadian Army and currently has a son in the military. The characters he created — played by himself, Kennedy Crane and Nich Gulcyz — are composites of a number of people he interviewed.

He created the play to raise awareness of how these soldiers’ service has affected the lives of those around them, and how those who remain can suffer from the lingering effects of combat. “I’m trying to stay away from the term PTSD in the production, but it is about people dealing with PTSD based on what they call OSI — operational stress injuries,” Rancourt said. Statistics Canada reported in 2013 that about one in six fulltime Canadian Forces members reported a major depressive episode, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, alcohol abuse or drug dependence. Rancourt prefers the term OSI because he says that is where ensuing conditions originate. “I think in the modern societal vernacular, PTSD can mean just about anything, so the term OSI is more befitting,” he said.

Pollinator passion put to pages Local book launch planned for Wednesday SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

local author and illustrator isn’t shying away from any buzzwords in her first book. Elaine Sedgman is a first-time author and illustrator with a passion for bees — and not just any bees. “Honey bees get the most attention, for sure,” she said. “When people think of a bee, they think of a honey bee or bumblebee — or a wasp and getting stung.” The book’s official title is Osmia Lignaria Pollinator Extraordinaire, but through the publishing process it came to be known by a more accessible name: A Bee Named BOB. Osmia lignaria is a species of solitary bee sometimes known as a mason bee or a blue orchard bee — or BOB, for short. Sedgman’s book on the bee’s business is intended for kids ages 8 to 10 and was developed based on presentations she did years ago to teachers in the region, talking about the importance of pollinators and bees like BOB. Along with the story, the book is filled with bee-related facts about bee anatomy, lifecycle and behaviours, and Sedgman’s feedback so far has been positive, she said. Sedgman’s buzz for pollinators

BOB — the blue orchard bee seen in Elaine Sedgman’s book.

stems from interest gained during local bee studies, which she participated in as a citizen scientist, organizing workshops and doing pollinator counts on behalf of the Thompson Shuswap Master Gardeners in conjunction with researchers at Thompson Rivers University. She started work on the book three years ago and, using what she learned and practiced during her time spent earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from TRU, illustrated the book, as well. The 14-page book also contains a list of resources and tips to build your own bee condo.

Next up, Sedgman is planning a second edition of A Bee Named BOB, but she also has plans for a second bee-focused book. “I’m still recovering from this one, but I would do another — this time on a ground nesting bee, because 70 per cent of the world’s species are ground nesters,” she said. A Bee Named BOB is available in Kamloops at Legends Used Books, 1415 Hillside Dr., at Big Little Science Centre, 655 Holt St., and at Chapters, 1395 Hillside Dr. A book launch is planned for Wednesday, May 29, at Big Little Science Centre at 6:30 p.m.

he Rotary Club of Kamloops Daybreak is looking for art and it’s reaching out to the people of Kamloops for help. The organization is developing a new fundraiser called Art from the Attic and is looking for donations of paintings, prints and posters — and just about anything that will hang on a wall, be its origins in your attic or elsewhere. In October, Rotary Daybreak will be putting those donations up for sale. “It was something my husband and I had seen in Invermere in 2011,” said Daybreak member Beverly Warner, noting her daughter brought her to the Kootenay town’s art sale. “There was a lineup of people, probably a block long, waiting to get in,” Warner said. She immediately thought it was a project that could be just as successful in Kamloops. With the Daybreak club starting work on some potentially expensive improvements at the Overlander long-term care facility, finding a new source of funds became important. Among other things needing work, Daybreak plans to rebuild the gazebo and redo the asphalt

sidewalks at the Brocklehurst care home. But the club first needs art — and that’s where Kamloopsians come in. “So, now we’re asking for art,” Warner said. “Now we need art. We need lots of art. We want to have 1,200 pieces of art.” Even though the sale won’t take place until Oct. 4 and Oct. 5, Daybreak wants to get the art as soon as possible. “We need to get it now, not in September, because September makes it a little tough to get everything together,” Warner said. And art is already starting to come in, including a custom piece that was painted by local artist Correen Genshorek. Warner said Daybreak members can clean up scuffed artwork and can repair broken glass in frames. She added that donations of empty frames are also welcome. In addition to raising money for Rotary Daybreak’s community endeavours, Warner hopes the project will results in more art on walls of Kamloops homes. “I would think the arts community would like that, too,” she said. Those interested in making a donation can contact Warner at 778-220-2865 to arrange for pickup or drop-off.

Music video locally produced KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A video for Brian Tate’s song Take Down These Walls has been produced by local filmmaker Vesta Giles, thanks to a Telus Storyhive grant. The video, performed in American Sign Language by sign language artist Landon Krentz, features local background actors and was filmed in locations around Kamloops, including Bunker Road, downtown Kamloops and the Stage House Theatre. Tate recorded the song with Vancouver’s City Soul Choir. He

founded the choir and recently stepped down as the music director of the 100-person choir. Giles first received Storyhive funding for her film When I’m Dead, which received $10,000 and debuted in the fall of 2018. As part of Telus Storyhive’s music video edition, Giles was elligible for up to $10,000 in funding. Giles said she wanted to work with Tate, whose song was inspired by his time as a guest conductor in Washington, D.C., because presenting a large choir would make for “a different kind of music video.”

ith the weather warming up and the excuses for staying indoors waning, I am starting to look around and decide what creative pursuits I can indulge in outdoors. The winter is filled with all things textural, from weaving to crochet, macrame to embroidery, but I struggle in the summer to find pockets of time in which to craft. I used to bring embroidery with me on car trips, but after a road trip ended with a needle stuck in my foot and weeks of finding coloured threads everywhere, I stopped. This year, as I started to plan my garden I found myself looking into which plants I could grow that could be used in the fall for purposes other than eating. From natural dying to utilizing the flower press I picked up for a song at the thrift store, my wheels have been turning. I have plans to turn the dyed fabrics, at this point limited to the beautiful avocado dyed fabric I have experimented with, into new pillow cases. Or perhaps I shall spend the summer photographing scenes I can translate into watercolours this winter, or collecting ephemera on our hikes that will inspire a new colour palette in a weaving. Whenever I am able, I like to include my children in this pursuit. While neither of my boys is necessarily into wandering the aisles of Michaels, I can usually persuade them to pick some flowers on a hike, or collect the smoothest stones for us to craft with later on. It’s incorporating creativity into

MOVEMENT our daily lives that has made it easier to convince them to work with me on a project rather than having defined “assignments” or trying to force anything on them. They did really enjoy guessing what colour the avocado pit would dye — one thought brown and one green, and both were rather shocked at the soft pink that emerged. To make your own fabric dye from an avaocado, start collecting the pits now and save them in the freezer until you have a handful. Gently bring to a simmer in a large pot of water (preferably a crafting pot instead of a good cooking pot). Once you have a colour that you are happy with, gently submerge your cotton fabric and let it sit until it develops the perfect shade.

Smollett case ordered unsealed CANADIAN PRESS

CHICAGO — A judge in Chicago has ordered the file in the Jussie Smollett criminal case unsealed. Cook County Judge Steven Watkins said Thursday that while there are good arguments in favour of keeping the file sealed, the Empire actor forfeited his rights to keep the case sealed to protect his privacy by talking to the media before and after prosecutors dismissed the charges.

Smollett had been charged with 16 counts alleging he lied to police when reporting he’d been the victim of a racist, anti-gay attack in January. Police insist the actor, who is black and gay, staged the attack because he was unhappy with his salary and wanted publicity. All charges were dropped with little explanation. The criminal case was dismissed March 26. Smollett wanted the case sealed, saying that he had “the right to be left alone.’’

NEWARK, N.J. — Authorities say a court hearing has not yet been scheduled for comedian Artie Lange following his arrest on a charge of having failed to comply with his courtordered drug program. The Essex County sheriff in New Jersey said Lange was arrested Tuesday morning at a halfway house on an unspecified violation. Sheriff Armando Fontoura told NJ.com that Lange would remain at

the county jail until he is called before a judge for re-evaluation. Attempts to reach a representative who could comment on Lange's behalf were unsuccessful on Thursday. Lange spent almost a week in the county jail earlier this year after a positive drug test. He was placed on probation last year after pleading guilty to heroin possession stemming. The 51-year-old was on the Fox sketch comedy series Mad TV and was a longtime co-host on The Howard Stern Show.

Cain’s Kids Page The Neverending Story … ends We started it — you continued and ended it.

Bobby always wanted to go to space. 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. Indeed, a space shuttle had landed on the back field of Mount Paul School. The grass was scorched. Thank goodness it was winter or the entire building would be on fire. Then the high side door folded down and two astronauts walked down the ramp. Bobby sprang from his seat and bounded to the door. He raced over to the astronauts and skidded to a stop at their feet. “Hello!” Bobby cried. “Can I come to space with you?”

WATCH FOR THE KTW/CAIN’S KIDS’ PAGE EVERY TWO WEEKS he asked. “Can you fix a rocket ship?” one of the astronauts asked. “I think so . . .” Bobby said. He walked over and gasped. On the bottom of the rocket was a blue-skinned, skinny creature with huge eyes, staring up at him. “Can you help me?” the creature hissed. “I want to, but how?” Bobby replied. Then the alien reached out and touched Bobby’s hand. (The next part was written by Hailey Traynor, a kindergarten student.) All of a sudden, two ears popped out of Bobby’s head and he turned green, just like the alien. They became friends.

The alien needed help finding his spaceship because he was on another alien’s spaceship. While they were holding hands, they began to float up to the universe. (The next part was written by siblings Ava and Juliet Lavigne. Ava is in Grade 1 and Juliet is in Grade 4.) Wow!” said Bobby. “What’s happening?” The blue alien answered without speaking: “We are ascending to the mother ship to grab some more supplies. It’s hovering just above the clouds.” Bobby was amazed he could hear his new friend’s thoughts. He thought that was so fun! Then they began to do somersaults and cartwheels in the air.

Cain’s

They rose above the clouds and there, lo and behold, was a beautiful spacecraft the size of Sandman Centre. (The next part was written by Emma Garossino, who is in Grade 3.) Once they were on the ship, Bobby and the alien — whose name was Moon — heard some scuffling sounds. “What’s that?” Bobby asked. “Probably just Sparkles, my dog,” Moon the alien replied. Right then, a creature with four long ears and seven legs came out, covered in sparkles. “Oh!” said Bobby. Then everything suddenly went pitch dark. (The next part was written by Sophie Leadley, who is in Grade 5.) In the dark, all Bobby could hear was the shuffling of seven legs across the hard floor of the rocket. 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. (The final part was written by Jacob Rowley Howard, who is nine years old.) Bobby realized right away that they had landed on a planet that was slowly being eaten by a black hole — that night he thought he saw was actually the planet disappearing into the black hole. It was hard to see much of anything, but they needed to find the mother ship if they were going to survive. Suddenly, the alien’s dog, Sparkles, began running toward a shape in the distance. “The mother ship!” Bobby cried out. They climbed

aboard, fired up the engines and took off, just seconds before the black hole closed in on them. “Where to, now?” Bobby asked Moon. “Home,” replied the alien. “Why home?” Bobby asked. “Because you have school tomorrow and we have completed our mission.” Moon explained the mission was to make contact with an earthling to show humans that they are not alone in the universe. “In time, we will meet again,” Moon said as he landed near Mount Paul and watched Bobby run into the distance.

FAITH

The glory of the cross seen in Christ’s ascension

A

ccording to the Christian calendar, the annual celebration of the ascension of the Lord Jesus this year is to be celebrated on May 30. The life of Jesus can be told as four great miracles: Incarnation, Resurrection Ascension and the Second Coming. The ascension is that event in which Christ departed visibly and returned to heaven. He came to earth as a humble baby. He left the earth as the exalted conqueror. When his earthly work was completed, Jesus entered into his ministry of preparing the heavenly homes for his followers, as well as the high priestly work of intercession on their behalf. Before leaving the earth, Jesus said, “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.” In that statement we find the magnetism of his sacrificial love, light, truth, holiness and all the attributes of God and perfect man. “If I be lifted up, I will draw ...” signifies his drawing his followers for forgiveness, for cleansing, for trans-

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have

FAITH

formation. In that statement, there is something for his pursuers, when they begin to feel guilty, to draw them toward the one that can pardon. There is something in one who feels himself defiled that draws him toward the fountain that can cleanse. There is something in one who feels himself weak that draws him toward his protecting power. “I, if I be lifted up, will draw ...” said Jesus. Then there is the other scripture in John 12:24: “Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone; but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit.” The only way to behold Jesus is to see him in the process of dying. He came into the

world to save the lost and it is by the power of death that he could multiply himself. We can keep the wheat in the barn, protected from weather and weevil, but we will have no crop. We can sow it out into the field, harrow it in and even after a week it is worth nothing. It seems to have been lost. Its value is perhaps lost, but it has died with a view to the future harvest. “Except a grain of wheat ... die, it abides alone.” Following his death as a grain of wheat, Jesus rose and ascended to heaven 40 days after Easter. Though the ascension is often overlooked today, the church has historically seen it as one of the most significant events in salvation history. It was prophesied and taught in the Scriptures, in such passages as Psalm 66:18; 110:1. Jesus himself spoke of his ascension in John 6:62; 14:28; and 20:17. The ascension was in God’s plan. The necessity of the ascension lay in the fact heaven was Jesus’ home. It was

logical that when his work was complete, he would return home again. The prophecy had to be fulfilled. The divine plan was that the Holy Spirit would not come to believers until after the ascension of Christ. The ascension had to precede Pentecost. It was also a prerequisite to further the work of Jesus of preparing a heavenly home for his followers. It would have been wonderful if Jesus could have lived on earth forever in his post-resurrection power, but that was not God’s plan for the church. Jesus ascended to complete the redemptive work that was required (John 20:16,17). It also enabled his followers to do the promised “greater works.” Following his ascension, Jesus entered into the ministry of intercession at God’s throne. On the other hand, we, too, can now come boldly to the Lord in prayer (Heb.4:14-16). His ascension now makes his ministry worldwide, not localized in Palestine (Matt. 28:18). The ascension is

in a meaningful and respectful dialogue within the church. As to the issues mentioned in the column, Pope Francis’ document, Amoris Laetitia, was welcomed by the vast majority of Catholics and the bishops who attended the synod on the family. Indeed, Cardinal Mac Oullet, prefect of the Congregation of Bishops, discredited the interpretations by some conservatives calling them “alarmist and unfaithful.” As to Cardinal Carlo Vigano’s allegations concerning the pope’s actions regarding Cardinal McCarrick, Cardinal Oullett (himself a rather conservative bishop), after investigating the matter, wrote a letter denouncing the allegations. There is no doubt Pope Francis is trying to make the church more pastoral in its

She asked him, “Chaplain, what do you think about the second coming?” The chaplain asked, “Your majesty, why do you ask me that question?” The queen replied, “I wish He would come while I am alive, for nothing would give me more pleasure than with my own hands to give Him the crown of Great Britain and India.” In her young womanhood, with life before her, she crowned Jesus as king of kings and lord of lords as she ran the great empire. Then, in her old age, with grey hair and many cares, she wanted to give Him every crown that God had given her. While we are waiting for the coronation of the ascended Lord to come, let us crown him here and now. Let us enthrone Christ in our hearts and lives — and heaven is begun.

Letter to the Editor Editor: Re: Chris Kempling’s Faith column of May 17 (‘Heresy or modernization’): Let me first state that I am acquainted with Kempling and was a colleague of his for many years. He is an intelligent and decent man. He is also a convert to the Catholic faith, formerly being an evangelical Christian. Evidence of his former tradition is often seen in many of his columns. In his May 17 column, Kempling cites concern over the directions taken by the present pope. Kempling, as do a small number of other Catholics, uses the term heresy. Heresy is a very loaded term, given the history of the church in the Middle Ages, and has no place

also strong proof and explanation of our future resurrection bodies. Positionally, believers today are seated with Jesus in the heavenlies. Because he has ascended, angels, authorities and powers are subject to him. The next big event in the calendar Christian believers are awaiting is the second coming of Christ. No one knows the year or date of this awesome happening. But believers ought to plan and work as if Jesus were not coming for another century, yet live a holy and pure life as if he were to return today. Just this past week, we celebrated a holiday in honour of Queen Victoria. In this context, I just read a heartwarming story about the noble queen. Once when she was ill, the queen was visited by her chaplain. She had been reading a pamphlet about the second coming of the Lord.

approach to Catholics and, indeed, the world. Many of his reforms, such as opening a dialogue with liberation theologians, were initiated by his predecessor, the more conservative Pope Benedict. Pope Francis has been praised in many quarters regarding his prophetic stand supporting migrants and the environment. I will finish by quoting the first sentence from the Vatican II document Gaudium et Spes (On the Church in the Mordern World): “The joys and the hopes, the griefs and the anxieties of the peoples of this age, especially those who are poor or in any way afflicted, these are the joys and hopes, the griefs and anxieties of the followers of Christ.” Paul Corcoran Kamloops

Make or break LYN AMONG NOMADIC LIONS LOOKING FOR A HOME

MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

K

eon Lyn is easy to root for, a persevering journeyman pursuing his big break, although he may cringe at the

terminology. In fact, any more big breaks and he may just snap. The 27-year-old defensive back from Miami joined the B.C. Lions in 2018, one year removed from a broken left femur, suffered while playing for the Hamilton TigerCats, and five years removed from a fractured left kneecap, an injury sustained in his senior year at Syracuse. “This is a very big year for me — very, very, very big year,” Lyn said at B.C. Lions’ training camp in Kamloops on Wednesday. The season is of three-very magnitude because his contract expires after the 2019 campaign and failure to catch on in the CFL would likely mark the end. Lyn, who stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 205 pounds, made stops with the Indianapolis Colts, the Arena Football League’s Jacksonville Sharks (twice), New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Ti-Cats before the Lions took a chance on him in 2018. “I don’t want to say he’s in a dogfight to stay on the roster because everybody is,” Lions’ defensive back coach Ryan Phillips said. “There is a new guy at the helm [head coach DeVone Claybrooks]. He’s not showing any favourtism to anybody.” T.J. Lee is among few returning surefire starters on a team that has been overhauled. The sixth-year halfback from Seattle may provide inspiration for Lyn. A ruptured Achilles in 2016 sidelined Lee, who had locked

down a starting position after racking up 79 tackles, three sacks and four interceptions in a breakout 2015 campaign. “You’re so secluded when you’re injured,” Lee said. “You don’t have the life of a normal football player. That’s when you turn on the grind and you gain mental strength from that in your training. You learn how to push yourself.” Lee returned to action and backed up a solid 2017 season by earning West Division All-Star status in 2018. Asked to describe the play, the seconds during which his femur snapped late in the third quarter of a game between his Tiger-Cats and the Edmonton Eskimos in Hamilton on July 20, 2017, Lyn grimaced before uttering a few words. “I wouldn’t wish that on anyone,” Lee said. The Esks, led by quarterback Mike Reilly, scored 18 points in the fourth quarter, targeting the side of the field left vulnerable in Lyn’s absence, according to a story in the Hamilton Spectator, en route to a 31-28 victory in Week 4. That freak incident, as Lyn calls it, occurred when the hard-doneby cornerback was playing the best football of his life, fully recovered from the kneecap fracture and finally starting in the CFL after four nomadic years. “Hamilton gave the impression they wanted me back, even after the injury,” said Lyn, who began the rehab process after surgery that July. “With that mindset, I’m like, ‘OK, I’m going to heal up, work hard. This team wants me. I know I can make plays in this league. “They ended up letting me go before I get back to Hamilton. If

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Keon Lyn keeps his eyes on the quarterback and his hands on a receiver at B.C. Lions’ training camp on Wednesday. Camp will run at Hillside Stadium on Friday from 10 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

they don’t want me back, what are the chances of another team wanting me coming off a severe injury? A lot of thoughts go through your head.” Retirement crossed his mind, but Lions’ director of player personnel Torey Hunter and former Lions’ defensive lineman Shawn Lemon were among those who vouched for Lyn. He joined the Leos, continued rehab work and played in one game last season, performing well on special teams against the hometown Saskatchewan Roughriders in a Week 20 matchup. “I honestly thought I was done playing football,” Lyn said. “I made the best of that opportunity, but it’s not me, it’s god. I’m very thankful.” GM Ed Hervey, defensive coordinator Rich Stubler, Claybrooks

and Phillips will be wary of a player who has played in as many CFL games as he’s had leg surgeries — three. “We’re seeing how well he gels within the defence,” Hervey said. “We believe in giving guys opportunities.” Added Phillips: “The first thing you worry about is when they go into contact is if they start favouring it. Camp is long and if it flares up, you take that into consideration. He hasn’t had any issues. He’s been practising at a good level.” They must know about his heart and determination. And he wants to show them he’s multifaceted, able to play boundary corner and the SAM position, capable of covering slot receivers and stopping the run. “I don’t know if they know how

versatile I am,” Lyn said. “I think they do. It’s new coaches. They invested in a couple players who will play. A couple of the DBs, the veterans. It’s football. It’s a business. “I play for the B.C. Lions right now, but you’re kind of playing for all nine teams at this point. You make the best of your opportunities here and let the chips fall wherever they fall.” Lyn’s next opportunity to shine is on Sunday in exhibition action against the hometown Eskimos, but that’s not breaking news to him. He might not have many more chances to shatter expectations. “I’ve come a long way. My story is crazy, but I’m not the only one,” Lyn said. “If you want something in life, it will come if you grind hard for it.”

Catharine Pendrel was pleased with her performance at the first elite women’s cross-country mountain biking World Cup stop of the season. The 38-year-old Kamloops rider placed 12th in the Olympic race last Sunday in Albstadt, Germany, her time of 1:30.05 about four minutes off the pace set by gold medallist and defending world champion Kate Courtney of the U.S. “A good day in Albstadt finishing 12th and with lap times that give me confidence the podium is within reach … now if I could only figure out how to have a good start,” Pendrel said on Facebook. The Fredericton native will race this weekend at the second stop on the circuit in Nova Mesto Na Morave, Czech Republic, with the short-track race on Friday to help determine starting position for the main event on Sunday.

Pendrel, a two-time world champion (2011, 2014), broke her left humerus (the long bone between the shoulder and elbow) last summer, an injury that wreaked havoc on her season and forced her out of two World Cup events. The three-time World Cup champion (2010, 2012, 2016) finished the 2018 circuit in 21st place. There are seven stops on this year’s World Cup schedule. Racking up points along the way will be key to improving her world ranking, used to determine starting position for some events, including the world championship, which will run from Aug. 28 to Sept. 1 in MontSainte-Anne, Que. Pendrel dropped one spot, to 38th from 37th, in the most recent world rankings, while she sits 15th in World Cup rankings, with 112 points after one race. Courtney, 23, is atop World Cup standings with 375 points and became the first American in 20 years to win gold in a cross-country event.

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

General manager Ed Hervey will have pull when it comes time to figure out where the B.C. Lions want to hold training camp in 2021 and beyond. Wally Buono was head coach and GM in 2017 when the Lions signed an extension to host camp at Hillside Stadium through 2020. Early signs are good for Kamloops. “We haven’t had those discussions and it’ll be handled when it’s handled, but I can’t see any reason why we wouldn’t come back,” Hervey told KTW on Wednesday after a sunny training session at Hillside. “It’s been a great facility for us. It’s an opportunity for us to bring everyone to an isolated location and keep all the players together and build continuity.” Camp came to Kamloops in 2010 on a three-year deal with an option for 2013, which was exercised. The Leos announced in February 2013 they would stay in Kamloops through 2014. In May 2014, the city and the Lions confirmed camp would be held in the River City in 2015. The two sides continued to talk about a longer-term extension,

the one announced in 2014 that kept the Lions here through 2017. Jeff Putnam, the City of Kamloops’ parks and civic facilities manager, told KTW in July 2017 the city will pay the Lions $45,000 in 2018, $50,000 in 2019 and $55,000 in 2020. Nanaimo, Prince George, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Courtenay and Kelowna were among cities rumoured to be interested in intercepting the pre-season festivities when they were last up for grabs. There is an estimated economic spinoff of $300,000 per year into the community, according to the city. Putnam was asked in 2017 about the origins of that number. The Lions are here for nearly a month, spending money at restaurants, night clubs, the movies and malls, he said, and, “you name it, there is a gamut of companies they do business with, rental companies for vehicles, scissor-lift companies for camera crews, photographers, that type of thing.” B.C. also hosts FanFest at each training camp, attracting tourists to the city and its hotels and restaurants, Putnam said. “But what we get the best value from, in my opinion, is the

national exposure we get from media that comes here to cover camp,” Putnam said. “A football camp is the best training camp you can host as a community. They’re here for so long. NHL camps are two-and-ahalf days on the ice and they’re gone.” Lions’ president George Chayka and director of football operations Neil McEvoy usually negotiate with City of Kamloops brass. “We’re certainly happy with it,” Putnam said on Thursday. “We haven’t had any serious conversations beyond 2020. It’s pretty tough to duplicate what we can offer.” Terms of the deal dictate Kamloops is promoted in game programs and on the Jumbotron at Lions’ home games at BC Place Stadium and the city receives $10,000 in tickets, which are sold or given to charities for fundraising. The Leos practise at Hillside Stadium, use the Tournament Capital Centre’s facilities and sleep and eat at Thompson Rivers University, a one-stop shop that is proving tough for other communities to beat. “The city of Kamloops has been great to us,” Hervey said. “We enjoy coming out here.”

B.C. Lions’ defensive back Aaron Grymes jogs onto the field at Hillside Stadium for a training camp practice last weekend.

Lee, DBs embracing new looks on defence MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

T.J. Lee would be forgiven if he expressed some concern over a position change. The B.C. Lions’ defensive back enjoyed a career year in 2018 playing at weak-side halfback, but has moved to strong-side halfback in time for the 2019 CFL campaign. “It’s a completely different position,” Lee said on Wednesday at training camp in Kamloops. “It’s a lot more field, a lot more pass routes. I’m more so out of the run game, but I’m very much in the pass game, working with a whole lot more field. I’ve got to work with spacing and communicate a lot more.” Lee is embracing the change and perhaps that is easier to do given who is replacing him — childhood best friend Aaron Grymes. “I believe in the coaches, I believe in the system and I believe in myself,” Lee said. “I believe I can play this game and not just one position. I can play everywhere.” Grymes, who had a career-best season for the Edmonton Eskimos in 2018, can play at both halfback and corner, but sits No. 1 on the most recent depth chart at weak half. “If they feel like they have a player who is better at boundary corner, so they’re not going to bother putting me there because they know they can put me somewhere else, then I want to do that. I want to do what’s best for this defence,” Grymes said. “You want to say I wish I could play next to my childhood best friend, but at the same time, that’s probably not best for the defence. I’d rather play on opposite sides because I can communicate to my side, he can communicate to his side and we can meet in the middle and make sure we’re on the same page.” Grymes played in 17 games for the Esks last

year and collected 58 defensive tackles, five special-teams tackles, three interceptions, one touchdown and one forced fumble. Not to be outdone, Lee suited up in 18 games for the Leos and racked up 81 defensive tackles, two specialteams tackles, three picks, one touchdown and two forced fumbles en route to being named a West Division all-star. It appears Lee put in off-season work for Lions’ GM Ed Hervey, reaching out to the friend he went to high school with and played minor football with from the ages of seven to 18 in Seattle. “I’m like, dude, come here if you want to be here,” Lee said. “I’m your best friend. This is home. I know you developed a nice legacy in Edmonton, but this is home. “I know you want to play here. I didn’t have to do much swaying. I think I said the right things and backed up enough for him to make the decision on his own.” Washington state is well-represented in the Lions’ secondary. Defensive backs Carson Ketter (Ocean Shores), Victor Gamboa (Tacoma) and D-Londo Tucker (Tacoma) join Lee and Grymes on the sizeable list. Ryan Phillips, who coaches the unit, is from Seattle. “I think it’s beautiful,” Lee said. “It’s a breed.” Not from Washington state — Rich Stubler, the native of Glenwood Springs, Colo., who took over from Mark Washington as defensive co-ordinator in time for the 2019 season. “The schemes we’re trying to run are way easier than any other year I’ve been here,” Lee said. “It’s really on the players to communicate and make things happen — play top down, let the offence make a mistake and capitalize. “I’ve got to get rid of my old habits. With Mark, it was a very complex

scheme, very heady.” New positions and schemes are set for a test run, with the Eskimos slated to host the Lions in pre-season play on Sunday. “Wherever coach wants me to play, I’m going to play,” Lee said. “Get your ego out of it. It’s not about my ego, not about my stats. It’s about this year.”

Kamloops Golf and Country Club assistant superintendent Nathan Hagel (left) and superintendent Travis Olson speak to Brock Middle School students earlier this month as part of the First Green program. Golf courses are used as environmental learning labs, with lessons taught on healthy turf, trees and other vegetation.

KGCC, golfathon to help fight ALS During the month of June, golf professionals will swing the sticks from sunrise to sunset to support those living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), attempting to play as many holes as possible to raise awareness and funds. The Kamloops Golf and Country Club will participate on June 13, with general manager Alec Hubert taking to the links. ALS, also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that affects a person’s motor neurons, which carry messages to the muscles, resulting in weakness and wasting in arms, legs, mouth, throat and elsewhere. The person is typically immobilized within two to five years of the initial diagnosis. There is no known cause or cure. Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide support services to ALS patients and their families, friends and caregivers. “Throughout our 13 years of participation, the efforts of countless golf professionals and volunteers have helped raise over $1.6 million,” said Donald Miyazaki, executive director of the PGA of BC. “The program has assisted tens of thousands of individuals.”

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Goldie Willomena Nahorney (née Serack) “Be bold, colourful, and daring. Paint what moves you and don’t be surprised if others get the message.” Goldie Nahorney, lovingly known to her family as “Nan”, laid down her paint brush forever on May 11, 2019 in Kamloops, British Columbia Goldie was born on August 29, 1927 in Perdue, Saskatchewan. She moved to BC in her late teens and then returned home and married John Benjamin (Benny) Bjerke in June 1946. Out of that love were born Eldon Bennard and Laverne (Sophie) Dorothy. Goldie, Benny and the children would return to BC in 1955 until Benny’s death in November 1976.

Please come and join us and enjoy a Celebration with Susan & Family in the Honour of Vic Alm on Sunday, June 2, 2019 – 12-4pm. at the Keekwillie Restaurant in Rivershore Estates & Golf Links, 330 Rivershore Drive, Kamloops, BC

Sharie Diehl (Nicholas) Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director

Every Friday in KTW!

Fate would call Goldie back to Saskatchewan where she met and married William (Bill) Nahorney in September 1979. The love of BC kept pulling her back and the two of them would live in Vancouver, Likely and Kamloops while enjoying many long vacations through North and Central America. That was until Bill’s passing in 2010. Painting was Nan’s passion which she did professionally since 1968. She won several Jurors’, Peoples and Artists Choice Awards. She spent twenty years travelling through North and Central America and studied pastels and oils with noted Mazatlan artist Guillermo Kelly for six months each year. Nan was a member of the Kamloops Art Gallery, the Community Arts Council of Kamloops, K.W.M.A. and the Federation of Canadian Artists where she received her Active Status in 2003. She had several independent shows with her paintings appearing in the United Kingdom, United States and Mexico. To her family Nan was always full of fun and taught us how to embrace life to the fullest. Goldie is survived by Eldon (Joyce) and Sophie as well as two grandchildren Erin (Doug) and Leif (Lesley) and her precious boy, her great-grandchild Brayden.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

Celebration of Life

In keeping with Goldie’s wishes there will be no funeral service. On the first day of summer please join the family in raising a glass of mimosa in her memory. “May the heavens above be painted with her rainbows of colour for all to see.”

Q. Why do people choose cremation over burying the body?

On Sunday, May 26, 2019 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm at Cottonwood Community Center, 750 Cottonwood Ave ., Kamloops. Service 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm. Refreshments and snacks to follow. Please come join us in remembering Sharie.

Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

!

A. I think I’ve heard them all: religious beliefs, to save money, to save space, because of an aversion to earth organisms, claustrophobia, the “dead ringer” effect... It’s a personal decision in the end, but there are definite pros and cons. Why not call or drop by to discuss? !

Rosa Rizzo (née Durante) Rosa Rizzo (née Durante) passed away peacefully into the arms of her loving Saviour Jesus Christ on Saturday morning, May 18, 2019. She is predeceased by her husband Carmine and her infant son Nicola, her father Alfonso and her mother Modesta, brother Joe Durante and her sister Caterina Marchio and other relatives. Rosa was born in Albi, Catanzaro, Italy on April 21, 1928. She grew up amidst war and poverty, yet she shared with her family many happy stories about that time; in fact, she still joyfully sang the songs of her youth up to her passing. Rosa and Carmine were married in Albi in November, 1952. Rosa, Carmine and their daughter Maria, along with Rosa’s sister Caterina, and her family immigrated to Canada in 1957 to live in Kamloops amongst their many relatives. Rosa worked for Whiteway Laundry for 27 years, retiring in December 1982 just in time to be a loving and active Nonna to her grandchildren Angela and Michael. Nonna Rosa would cook pasta for them and bake them bread, biscotti, and crispelle too. In the evenings, Rosa would enjoy the game shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and then switch to the Comedy Channel for some laughter. Rosa would keep in contact with her family and friends by phone. Whenever her loved ones visited her, Rosa would graciously welcome them into her home, lavishly offering those biscotti and crispelle, all the while sharing those Albi stories and singing those songs. Rosa was graced with several opportunities to travel back to Italy, where she enjoyed reconnecting with her many relatives there. Rosa had a strong faith: she attended Mass at OLPH; she prayed the Rosary in Italian every day, while maintaining her devotion to San Nicola di Tolentino, the Patron Saint of Albi, generously sending financial donations for the upkeep of that parish church.

Maria and family would like to thank Jill and her inhome care staff for the excellent care they have given Mom for the last few years and especially Julie Bennet, who was Mom’s care aide for 8 years. Our family gives its sincere thanks to Rosa’s Gemstone family - we are grateful for all of your compassionate and loving care of our Mom. We also extend our special gratitude to Dr. Hamilton, Rosa’s long time family physician, as well as to Dr. Amalia De Wet, Dr. Bosman and Dr. Wynne. Our family would like to also state our deep appreciation to Sister Analisa and Sister Ernilyn for their tender-hearted visits to Mom and to Father Paul Simms for his benevolent spiritual guidance of Mom. Vigil Prayers for Rosa will be recited at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Church on Friday, May 24, 2019 at 7:30 pm. The Funeral Mass for Rosa will be celebrated on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 11:00 am at OLPH. In lieu of flowers, donations can be kindly made to The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada.

During the last 15 months of her life at the Gemstone Residence, Rosa would shine a bright smile and say “Everything OK”. And now, we say to you, Mom, “Don’t worry, but pray for us; everything will be OK”. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

They moved to Kamloops, BC in July 1964 with their beautiful daughters. For many years Martha worked as a chambermaid at the Village Hotel, but her true loves in life were her family, gardening and baking. She was a dedicated mother first and foremost and she treasured her role as Oma. She was the definition of hard work, independence and strength. Martha will be tremendously missed. Predeceased by her husband Thomas Lesperance and grandson Brandon Tate. She is survived by daughters Marlene (Gary) Stanley, Teresa (Charlie) Tate and Bonny Lesperance, grandchildren Tammy (Tony) Marsico, Michelle (Wayne) Quenneville, Candice Stanley (Norm) and Christopher Stanley, six great-grandchildren, her brother in Germany and her many nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved dearly. The family would like to thank the staff at Pine Grove Care Centre for the care they provided her and they would also like to thank the Kamloops Funeral Home. There will be no service held. Martha’s request was that you remember her for the way she touched all our hearts. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Tim exuded quiet strength and loyalty. He was a husband of 62 years to his childhood sweetheart Gail Worthington (MacKenzie). Father to five extraordinary children Debra Worthington (wife of Fred Wallin), Michelle Wortelboer (wife of Rudy Wortelboer), Diane Tulloch, Todd Worthington (husband of Teresa Worthington) and Darrel Worthington (husband of Vanessa Worthington). Grandfather to ten and great-grandfather to (almost) eight. Although he was the only child of Cecil Worthington and Leona Frye, Tim was happy to find a connection with his sister and brothers on his father’s side in his late twenties, which carried on throughout his life. Tim’s goofy grin, unassuming love and thoughtful insight never failed to brighten the sphere of those in his life – family and friends alike, and a great friend he was. Tim’s friendships were of the lasting kind – some for more than 50 years. Many of his closest connections grew from his passion for motorcycling, a hobby that he let go only three years ago. Tim spent countless hours on his BMW or his Goldwing touring across North America and Thailand with Gail riding pillion.

When he wasn’t off exploring, Tim rarely missed a motorcycle breakfast, or daily coffee klatch with the gang. Tim had an incredible work ethic and paid careful attention to the world around him, which earned him the hard won ability to retire from his career as a drywall contractor at age 49. Tim and Gail spent many of his postretirement years globe trotting on extended adventures in places like India, Nepal, Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Greece to name a few. In his later years, Tim relished time with his family and friends, even as his drive for excursions away eased. Tim remained at home in the care of Gail until he was briefly hospitalized prior to his death on May 17, 2019. A Celebration of Tim’s Life will be held at the Kamloops Funeral Home on Monday, May 27, 2019 at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family asks you consider a donation to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, Diabetes Canada, the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada, or the Canadian Cancer Society. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

A legacy remembered, shared, and celebrated becomes a person uplifted and elevated to a new level of space, light and life. - Ty Howard

Charles William “Bill” Cooper October 14, 1926 - May 7, 2019

Bill took his “Last Run” on May 7, 2019. Born on October 14, 1926 in Moose Jaw, SK, Bill went to work for CPR as a locomotive fireman until he enlisted and served during WWII with the King’s Own Rifles. After the war, he returned to railroading and after 38 years with CNR, he retired as a Locomotive Engineer in 1991. Bill had briefly met Marj Lewis, the love of his life, in Jasper in 1953 and they instantly disliked each other, but after reconnecting in 1964, they eloped on a locomotive. They raised their family in Kamloops, BC where they lived for 40 years before moving to Calgary in 2006. Bill was always at Marj’s side at “Jasper Daze” where one of their greatest joys was reuniting with family and old friends. Bill was a ‘Jack-of-all-trades” - always solving problems and fixing things, and doing woodwork in his shop. Bill was predeceased by his parents Daniel Cooper of Cheshire, England and Ann Scotton of Yorkshire, his son Mark and his sister Doris Faryon of Victoria, BC. He is survived by wife Marj, sons Doug of Stirling, AB, Paul of Grande Prairie, AB, Todd of Calgary, daughters Joanne Caruso of Lethbridge, AB, Barbara Boman of Richmond, BC, ten grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, brother-in-law Bob Lewis of Kamloops, BC and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Bill was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Enginemen and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was Bill’s wish that no funeral be held and his ashes be buried in Jasper at a later date. He was a huge supporter of organ donation. In lieu of flowers, please consider signing your organ donor card and/or make a donation on Bill’s behalf to the Jasper Museum, Box 42, Jasper, AB TOE 1E0 or to the Veteran’s Food Bank of Calgary, 4619-6 St. NE, Bay #1, Calgary, AB T2E 7C3.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night DYLAN THOMAS Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightening they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
