Memphis is a young T-shirt designer in Kamloops. The eight-year-old and mom, Jennifer Marshall, have started a clothing company, Streetside Apparel, which is growing every day. Turn to page A7 for the full story.

It was the day the street music bylaw died. On Tuesday, Kamloops council shut the guitar case on further conversations to charge, vet and regulate buskers, quashing a proposed street performer policy that drew much criticism when it was first floated last month. Council voted 5-4 against a recommendation from the city’s community services committee that staff bring a draft of the street performers policy to a future council meeting for consideration. Councillors Dale Bass, Sadie Hunter, Kathy Sinclair, Arjun Singh and Denis Walsh opposed the recommendation, while Mayor Christian and councillors Dieter Dudy, Mike O’Reilly and Bill Sarai voted in favour. The vote effectively kills the proposed policy. “We’ve already got a pretty strong indication in the community,” Singh said. “They don’t want to go down this road.” The proposed policy initially sought to require licensing of anyone performing on city streets. Performers would have been pre-vetted and paid fees through the Kamloops Arts Council. See INTERNAL, A6

MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW Pinnacle Access is the third cannabis store in the Kamloops area to open post-legalization and the first such store on the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc reserve. But the cannabis store is selling edibles, which remain illegal, and does not have a provincial licence required to operate.

BUT CHIEF SAYS BAND IS ASSERTING INHERENT RIGHT TO UPHOLD TRADITIONAL GOVERNANCE

twitter.com/ KamThisWeek

MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

The first retail cannabis shop on the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc (TTS) reserve appears to be out of step with provincial and federal laws. But the Tk’emlups chief told KTW the First Nation does not require approval from Ottawa or Victoria. Pinnacle Access, owned by TTS members Nacoma George and former band councillor Eagle Casimir, opened on May 15 at the corner of Mount Paul Way and Chilcotin Road. Posts on the shop’s Facebook page state Pinnacle carries more than 40 types of marijuana concentrates, as well as edibles. According to Health Canada spokesperson Geoffroy Legault-Thivierge, selling those products is illegal, on and off First Nations land. “That goes for the entirety of Canada right now,” he said. The regulations legalizing those products are still being drafted and must be brought into force by no later than Oct. 17, he said. Co-owner Eagle Casimir referred questions regarding his business to the Tk’emlups band, with which it has a business licence.

Tk’emlups Chief Rosanne Casimir replied to KTW via email. Asked why Pinnacle Access is permitted to sell the items, she argued Canada has created legislation concerning the permitted sale of edibles, adding it is the province that is still working on regulations. She said the band is ensuring health and safety standards are being met. However, as confirmed by Health Canada, only a draft of proposed regulations for legalizing edibles and concentrates has been completed and the products remain illegal. Pinnacle Access is not on the list of private non-medical cannabis retail store locations that is continually updated by the provincial government. The lone private retailer in Kamloops is included on this list. Cannabis retailers in B.C. require a provincial retail licence — a requirement similar to liquor laws that applies across the province, including on reserves and treaty settlement lands. Rosanne Casimir said a reserve-based shop does not require provincial or federal approvals. “Tk’emlups, along with many other First Nations across Canada, are asserting their inherent right to uphold their traditional governance,” she said.

The chief added the band is ensuring its regulations and bylaws for cannabis are harmonized as best possible with other governments, including the requirement that products sold are from a licensed producer. According to the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General, however, the B.C. Liquor and Cannabis Distribution Branch — the lone wholesaler for B.C. — isn’t permitted to sell cannabis to unlicensed retailers. Colin Hynes, a spokesperson for the ministry’s Community Safety Unit (CSU) said the agency is focused on educational campaigns and will liaise with local First Nations. Based on provincial laws, Hynes said, Pinnacle Access would be considered an illegal dispensary. “But the CSU wouldn’t just go in and confiscate all their items. They’d be talking first with that council and working through the process — they want to be respectful in all situations like this,” Hynes said. Asked if the CSU is engaged with the Tk’emlups band with respect to Pinnacle Access, Hynes said the ministry is “not commenting on individuals specific operations,” as per policy.

DOES YOUR SPOUSE RUN A BUSINESS? HOW DO YOU VALUE THE BUSINESS FOR SUPPORT PAYMENTS? If you are going through a relationship or marriage breakdown, and your partner owns a business, then it is important to get legal advice to ensure that you are receiving proper child or spousal support. The amount of money that an individual pays for child or spousal support is primarily determined by their income. For employees, calculating income is usually as straight forward as looking their tax return. However, it is more complicated if the individual owns a business because their tax return may not accurately reflect how much money they actually have.

DAVE EAGLES/KTW A group gathered outside Kamloops City Hall on Thursday, May 30, protesting the City of Kamloops’ decision to hire Arrow Transportation to dispose of the city’s biosolids in Turtle Valley, about 45 minutes east of Kamloops.

Protesters return to city hall OPPOSED TO PLAN TO SPREAD BIOSOLIDS IN TURTLE VALLEY JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Protestors were again at Kamloops City Hall on Thursday, opposing a biosolids-spreading project that continues to be blocked in Turtle Valley, near Chase. Protestors planned to be at city hall between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., the second time they have turned up on the city’s doorstep in about a month. Arrow Transportation has been hired by the City of Kamloops to manage the city’s treated sewage sludge — also known as biosolids — in the short term as the city continues to work on a long-term management strategy. The plan is to truck the biosolids from the city’s waste-treatment plant on Mission Flats to the Turtle Valley Bison Company’s ranch in the Shuswap, where it will be applied on the land. Turtle Valley resident Connie Seaward said protestors are calling for answers from the mayor and council on testing of an aquifer under the bison ranch they say is being ignored. “If it’s so safe, then can we please have a paper copy showing that the testing has been done?” Seaward asked. Seaward and others were blocking Arrow’s access to the bison ranch, but they dismantled their blockade when a court

injunction went into effect on May 18, prohibiting them from blocking access. However, a group calling itself the Secwepemc Elders Sacred Fire immediately moved in and continues to block access to the bison ranch. The group states the Secwepemc people never gave consent to “dump the biosolids on our territory” and vows it will continue to block access, despite court orders. “They don’t have the acting authority to do anything on our land,” spokesperson Miranda Dick said. “We do not give permission. We had no consultation and don’t give consent.” Arrow Environmental Services regional manager Jeff Mayer said the project continues to be on hold as the company engages with the community and First Nations. “We’re working diligently to try and come to an amicable resolution to address these people’s concerns,” he said. “At the end of the day, we’ve proven that the project is safe and responsible.” Asked to comment on the issue of the aquifer below the ranch, Mayer said he would not speak about it as the issue will go before the courts next week, when opponents of the plan seek counter-injunction. However, Mayer did comment on the aquifer issue in a May 9 KTW story.

While Their People Are Away,

The Dogs Will leARN & PlAY! Boarding & Dog Daycare

Mayer said the aquifer is adjacent to — not below — the project and deep into the ground. “There’s absolutely no way the biosolids could penetrate that deep into the soil,” Mayer told KTW at the time. The city released a lengthy statement on the latest protest, a portion of which stated: “Biosolids are produced by wastewater-treatment facilities around the world. In Canada, the beneficial reuse of biosolids is a recommendation from the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment based on their extensive research. “Projects similar to the one currently underway in Turtle Valley occur throughout B.C. and across Canada with great success. In our province, biosolids are regulated by the Organic Matter Recycling Regulation (OMRR), which is administered by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. “The vast majority of concerns we have heard are from those who oppose the beneficial reuse of biosolids and would like to see revised OMRR regulations. The City of Kamloops does not oversee the OMRR and cannot speak to the concerns with that regulation. “The City of Kamloops remains committed to adhering to all applicable legislation that governs the beneficial reuse of biosolids.”

This complexity exists because our tax laws allow business owners to deduct money used for personal benefit – such as entertainment expenses, car payments, and cell phone bills – from their income. However, from a family law perspective, a portion of these expenses may be included in the individual’s income when calculating how much child or spousal support that they should be paying. If the business owner’s reported income does not accurately reflect how much money they actually have, then the court may ‘impute’ or add back the improperly deducted money to their income, resulting in larger child or spousal support payments than may be expected. If you think that you are not receiving proper child or spousal support, then contact John Grover. He can help you navigate this complicated legal process.

Internal strategy for buskers, panhandlers A proposed policy that would have seen street performers be licensed and vetted through the Kamloops Arts Council will not proceed. Council this week voted 5-4 against a staff recommendation to bring a draft of the street performers policy to a future council meeting for consideration. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE

From A1

The Kamloops Arts Council approached the city with a desire to distinguish performers from panhandlers in the wake of last year’s inaugural International Buskers Festival, which will return to the city this July. On Tuesday, the city’s community and protective services director, Byron McCorkell, stressed the proposed policy was intended to “celebrate” street performers. He said anyone currently performing on a sidewalk is panhandling, leaving the

city in an “odd scenario.” City CAO David Trawin further explained to KTW that the city was approached about the problem of panhandlers wanting to perform on the same corner occupied by buskers during the festival. Asked about the scope of the problem, he said it probably would not occur very often. An existing bylaw already addresses the issue of problem panhandlers. Meanwhile, Singh said he heard “loud and clear in many, many ways” concerns

from the public about paying to play on city streets and vetting of performers, with questions raised about what constitutes art and who gets to decide. Some local artists called for the policy to be scrapped or modified and the Kamloops Arts Council then backtracked on the idea, stating the program would no longer be mandatory and further consultations and research would be conducted. McCorkell asked council to allow staff to continue working on the policy, due to “a number of

issues” involved. Other issues he cited include desire by business improvement associations to animate streets and clarifications about where performers can play and paying performers. The downtown Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association, however, criticized the idea following public backlash, saying the city should have engaged with those impacted. The city maintained the proposed policy was in its early stages and consultations were subsequently initiated. Sinclair said the city should stay out of the issue for now and recommended a oneyear opt-in program by the Kamloops Arts Council to support local entertainers, with the issue revisited down the road. Kelowna had similar debate resulting in no bylaw, she added. Bass suggested staff could simply use discretion in problem scenarios, while Walsh and Hunter said further work on the policy would be a waste of staff time. “I don’t know why we would spend time and resources on developing a policy to address something that I don’t know is a problem that exists. That’s my take on it,” Hunter said. “I can’t support that.” Those in favour, however, wanted to give staff the opportunity to rework the policy. O’Reilly said staff heard calls from the community and council for revisions, while Christian added he is in favour of exploring rules that could attract entertainment and liven up city streets. With the idea tossed, Trawin said the city will now look at an internal strategy to deal with buskers and panhandlers during the upcoming International Buskers Festival, which will take place in Riverside Park and on downtown streets from July 25 to July 28.

STREETSIDE SPROUTS FROM MEMPHIS’ MIND TODD SULLIVAN

STAFF REPORTER

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

W

hen Jennifer Marshall’s son, Memphis, decided to pitch the idea of opening his own business, she was a lot more receptive than many parents may have been. “We were driving to go drop something off and I said, ‘Hey mom, maybe I want to start making clothes,’” said Memphis, who will turn nine in September. “And she said, ‘OK.’” The business is called Streetside Apparel and, along with clothing for adults and kids, it also features bags, backpacks and home décor. “He’s brought me drawings of skateboards and stuff like that,” Jennifer said. “And then I kind of digitize them and put them into the computer and play with them a little bit — and then get them onto clothing.” Besides helping design the products for sale, Memphis is involved in other aspects of the business, such as naming the items and setting their prices. “Last night, when we did the backpack and it was $60, he was, ‘Why is it $60?’” Jennifer said.“ That’s a lot of money. So then it opened the door to explain, this is how much it costs us. So we need to make some money. “So where do we think is a reasonable amount to charge? And how do

we figure that out?” For the moment, Streetside Apparel products are available exclusively online, either at the company’s Etsy store or on the website at streetsideapparel.ca. All items are print-on-demand, so when customers place an order, they’re getting an item that was created just to fulfil that order and not one that’s been sitting in a warehouse. “I have a number of different manufacturers,” Jennifer said. “So it’s typically between two to seven days, print time, and then shipping depends on what location it’s coming from.” If you want to see some of their work in person, the duo does plan to sell some of their products directly at booths during upcoming markets and fairs in the Kamloops area. Though they’ve only been at work on the business since January, Jennifer said growth has been steady, with sales from as far away as Hawaii. “I find a lot of our sales are coming through Etsy,” she said. “I’ve set up promotions on our products on Etsy to kind of keep them in the forefront. And I feel that that’s really where we’re seeing most of the focus.” At the moment, Memphis doesn’t have too many plans for the future of Streetside Apparel besides continuing to make it bigger and better, but he does have advice for anyone considering getting into business for themselves. “Go right ahead,” he said.

TK’EMLUPS CREATES CANNABIS CASE

I

t appears as though the recently opened Pinnacle Access cannabis store, owned and operated on the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc reserve by Tk’emlups members, is an illegal cannabis store — no different that the illegal cannabis shops that have been shut down in Kamloops and across Canada since legalization arrived last October. But Tk’emlups Chief Rosanne Casimir disagrees, arguing that “Tk’emlups, along with many other First Nations across Canada, are asserting their inherent right to uphold their traditional governance.” The explanation she gave to KTW in response to questions about the store’s illegal operation were delivered via email, so we did not have the opportunity to ask for clarification on that statement. Tk’emlups council gave the store owners permission to open on band land, despite the fact the proprietors have not received the mandatory provincial licence to do so and despite the fact the store is selling cannabis edibles, which remain illegal in Canada. We are not clear on how operating an illegal cannabis shop relates to a First Nations’ “inherent right to uphold their traditional governance,” but both Ottawa and Victoria have confirmed the store is an illegal cannabis dispensary. If the end game is to assert that federal and provincial laws do not apply on First Nations land, why would one wait until after the federal government legalized cannabis to open a store and then not comply with the rules? Would this stance extend to liquor laws? Might we see a liquor store on First Nation land sell homemade moonshine? Might traffic laws differ from those off reserve? The plethora of possibilities renders this situation untenable and it will be extremely interesting to see how the powers-that-be in Ottawa and Victoria handle this issue.

Patel’s beat goes on

S

ome wonder how Al Patel can wait so long for his dream of a catheterization lab at Royal Inland Hospital to come to

fruition. Then those people hear the founder of the ICCHA/ Wish Fund speak and they understand. An Al Patel speech can make War and Peace seem like a tweet. If he can spend that much time extolling the virtues of the years-long mission to improve cardiac care at the Kamloops hospital, waiting a decade or more for a cath lab to open would seem like a coffee break in comparison. Yes, Patel can talk. But it’s what he says that is key. And his words are indeed making a difference as the steps toward establishing a cath lab continue, dollar by dollar and syllable by syllable. (A cath lab is a place in a hospital where doctors can diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease using catheters, small, flexible tubes. It is an alternative procedure to surgery that can access the heart and blood vessels. Patients in the Kamloops region must travel to Kelowna for such treatment, up to 800 people per year, according to statistics Patel received.) The ICCHA/Wish Foundation is a non-profit entity that raises money each year to buy a crucial piece of medical equipment for Royal Inland Hospital. Each year, a goal is identified and the fundraising begins,

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS culminating with a sold-out gala at Colombo Hall to thank the donors and celebrate the successful fundraising goal and announce the new endeavour. A week ago tonight, a diverse crowd of hundreds once again gathered at Colombo Hall, just east of downtown, where Indian food met Italian meals, silent auction items were bid up, various donors and sponsors were celebrated and music filled the building. The night featured Patel’s trademark filibuster on all things cardiac care, including a poignant video featuring some Kamloopsians who survived brushes with death via heart complications. They are all alive because much has been done year after year to improve the odds of survival. But, as Patel and his ICCHA/ Wish Fund supporters have been repeating with the regularity of a determined heartbeat, more can always be done. This is why the annual fund-

raising campaigns will continue until a cath lab at RIH opens — and the fund will likely carry on after that goal is reached. Last week’s annual gala revealed that $175,000 had been raised in the past year, money that will be used for cardiac care at RIH. The next specific goal is to purchase a C-arm (a piece of medical equipment that can take X-rays of a patient from almost any angle) for RIH’s cardiac-care unit, which is under construction, thanks in no small part to more than $600,000 raised by the fund. Since 2007, the ICCHA/Wish Fund has raised $1.2 million for cardiac care at the hospital and is now aiming to bring in $1 million to be used toward establishing a cath lab. As Patel told KTW in a recent article, a cath lab will provide better diagnostics and therapeutic services in cardiac care, immediate diagnosis for residents and reduce risks to those cardiac patients by eliminating the stress of travel, which can be costly and hazardous, especially in the winter. The cath lab campaign’s tag line is “Have a heart to give for a heart to live.” But funds or no funds, whether a cath lab is ever opened at RIH is ultimately the decision of Interior Health and the provincial government, which is why Patel has started a petition on the ICCHA Wish Fund website, at iwishfund.com. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJfoulds

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

MOTORIZED BIKES A REAL NUISANCE Editor: While my son and I were bike riding on McArthur Island, a gas-powered bike came roaring past us, cutting onto the grass to get around. It was going quite fast, was very loud, left a smell of exhaust behind and startled us. Perhaps the city should think about a bylaw in order to ban these nuisance motorized bikes from our city parks. Colin McKay Kamloops

LOOKING FOR SOME INSIGHT ON LETTER Editor: Re: John Goldsmith’s answer to the KTW question about how to add vitality to Kamloops North Shore (‘North Shore vitality?’ May 22): Perhaps Goldsmith could expand on his answer of “Sell it to Sun Peaks for $1.” I am hoping Goldsmith is trying to say Sun Peaks may have some fabulous ideas regarding improvement as it has developed an incredibly beautiful, accessible, friendly and viable community on the mountain — and not how his comment comes across. Lori England Kamloops

MORE CANADA, LESS JT Editor: In June 2016, then-U.S. president Barack Obama told MPs: “If I can borrow a phrase, the world needs more Canada.” I agree. But I would add that Canada needs less Justin Trudeau. Steve Haison, Kamloops

SO GRATEFUL FOR SAGEBRUSH Editor: I have read letters to the editor in KTW from people who are demanding a new performing-arts centre in Kamloops. It is neither helpful nor accurate to disparage Sagebrush Theatre when making the argument that the city needs a brilliant new arts centre. I write to offer both historical facts and the perspective of a retired actor/director of some 40 years. My home is in this city and my work with Western Canada Theatre began as a student (later WCT founding actor) under the training and direction of Tom Kerr. Kamloops has long demonstrated support for the performing arts. In 68 years, there have been numerous attempts to build a standalone performing-arts centre. The only attempt to go to public referendum was in 2015, when it failed. Sagebrush Theatre at Ninth Avenue and Munro Street in South Kamloops exists because of a complex dance between participating funding bodies and lengthy fundraising in the community.

The community supported a telethon and purchased car raffle tickets to raise funds for theatre seats. The federal government grant of onethird the cost was predicated on the provincial government and City of Kamloops each contributing their share. The condition precedent of the B.C. Ministry of Culture was that the money was only available for a “renovation.” The Kam High auditorium was demolished, but for the shell — hence the participation with School District 73. The City of Kamloops’ contribution was dependent on community use, with Western Canada Theatre and SD73 becoming priority users. The theatre, designed by architect Doug Huggins, opened in 1978. In 2003, by way of a City of Kamloops grant to WCT, which was later repaid, new seats were installed. In 2003, the City completed the lobby and backstage expansions. Then, as now, there were voices who criticized the choices of the day. There were complaints, a la Goldilocks — it’s too big, it’s too small, it should be on

the university grounds, where’s my guarantee for usage of the space?. Forty-one years later, Sagebrush Theatre is a building that has contributed much to the arts, the employment of artists and the city’s economy. Only recently has it required the kind of major repair to shutter it for a time. The reality is that a performing-arts centre, which can meet the needs of all potential users (if that is possible), will require collaboration between people with an extraordinary vision, clarity of purpose and the ability to market positive ideas to the public. I listen for the voices who dare to put forward a bold idea for a performing-arts centre and whose momentum will create a strong desire for a building that will take us into the next decades. I remain grateful for the venue we have in Sagebrush Theatre and I look forward to supporting a great idea for a new performing-arts centre, which will take us into the future. Lanni McInnes Shupe Kamloops

WE COULD USE A MAN LIKE HERBERT HOOVER AGAIN ... Editor: There was a time when we opened a newspaper to find high-paying lumber, mining and construction-related employment opportunities. We used to quit one job and walk down to another high-paying job. We could afford to

buy nice homes. Seniors could afford auto insurance and gasoline. We had paper shopping bags to keep our lumber business thriving. We now have part-time minimum wage opportunities. We have homelessness,

plastic bags, an overdose epidemic and people losing businesses and homes. Seniors are unable to buy auto insurance and gasoline. We have fewer lumber and mining companies and those that remain have been taken over by foreign investors.

Have your say on secondary suites JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Next month, the public will get a chance to weigh in on proposed policy changes with residential suites. Kamloops council has sent to a public hearing changes to the zoning and business licence and regulation bylaws, which would allow residential suites in more areas of the city and impose a fee and good neighbour agreement on landlords who do not live at their respective rental properties. Enforcement will be dealt with by council at a later date. Removing red tape is intended to increase rental housing amid low vacancy, provide mortgage helpers as housing prices rise, sensitively infill the city and improve tenant health and safety. City planner Carmin Mazzota said allowing secondary and garden suites in most urban areas, save for some restrictions, would eliminate the rezoning process, which costs residents $1,500, takes up to three months and requires a public hearing. Proposed changes also aim to address the issue of absentee landlords, requiring a business licence fee of $67.20, similar to that

of bed and breakfasts, and good neighbour agreements with landlords who do not live at their rental properties. The good neighbour agreement would help the city deal with issues of noise, nuisance and unsightly property. Those two issues (zoning and business licensing) will go to a public hearing at the Valley First Lounge in Sandman Centre on June 25. Meanwhile, council put a hold on the issue of enforcement — which has the potential to impact countless illegal suites in the city — until after the public hearing. BC Assessment has identified about 3,000 residential suites in Kamloops, with only a small fraction of them legal. Citing minimal changes, staff maintain enforcement of illegal suites would remain complaint-driven, unless identified during an inspection or emergency. In that case, homeowners in appropriate areas would have the option to legalize or decommission the suite, while homeowners in zones that do not permit residential suites would be required to decommission the suite. Coun. Arjun Singh expressed concerns about “frivolous complaints,” wishing to

maintain a minimum two complaints specifically from within the neighbourhood. City staff explained certain issues have arisen in the past, wherein staff’s hands were tied waiting for another complaint, noting discretion could have been used. “We want to be reasonable,” city development director Marvin Kwiatkowski said. Coun. Denis Walsh expressed concern about impacts on illegal suites, noting it could make the housing problem worse if they were forced off the market. However, staff stressed the intent is not to start cracking down. “That’s not at all what the focus of this is,” Mazzotta told KTW. Council requested a report that includes the previous policy and new policy on enforcement. Staff plan to subsequently develop a how-to guide for residential suites, including building requirements and regulations, as well as an online mapping tool for homeowners with legal suites. Those homeowners can market their suites via the tool and tenants could use it to identify legal suites for rent. For more information, go online to https://letstalk.kamloops.ca/Suites.

City of Kamloops CAO David Trawin.

The city’s CAO recently celebrated his silver anniversary as a civil servant. During Tuesday’s regular council meeting, City of Kamloops CAO David Trawin was given a sterling silver pin by Mayor Ken Christian on behalf of the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators for a quarter-

century in municipal management. “I myself, I think like all my other directors, do it because we want to make our community a better place and this is the one way we can do it and we can see it, just as you’re on council for doing the same thing,” Trawin said. “I’d like to thank you for

the opportunity and for the continued opportunity.” Trawin began his public career in planning and development in Terrace before moving to Kamloops for a similar management role in 2003, which he worked for just shy of a decade before becoming the city’s CAO seven years ago.

Drug courier gets five years in federal prison TIM PETRUK

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Vancouver father of four who began transporting large quantities of fentanyl and cocaine after work dried up in Alberta’s oilsands will spend more than five years in a federal prison. Pedro Dwayne Kematch, 35, was sentenced on Thursday in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops after pleading guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. Prior to his arrest, court heard, police became aware Kematch was part of a large-scale drug trafficking group transporting fentanyl and cocaine from B.C. to other provinces. On Feb. 28, 2015, an Acura being driven by Kematch was pulled over for speeding near Kamloops. Inside, police found a backpack and a hidden compartment containing 9,950 fentanyl pills and 487 grams of cocaine — drugs with a potential street value of nearly $350,000. Federal Crown pros-

ecutor Anthony Varesi said the fentanyl pills had been stamped to look like counterfeit Oxycontin. “The accused was obviously a trusted member of this organization to be transporting such a large amount,” Varesi said. “The number of fentanyl pills seized is quite alarming. It’s of course now a national health crisis.” Defence lawyer John Gustafson said Kematch had been supporting his family with his work in Alberta. When his partner went back to school, Gustafson said, Kematch had to find a new job closer to home in the Lower Mainland. “He very quickly fell into a situation where he was quite desperate,” Gustafson said. “It’s these circumstances that led to him being involved in these events.” B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley stressed the danger posed by fentanyl in handing down his sentence. “The impact on society that fentanyl has had is well-known,” he said.

Mounties make quick arrest Kamloops Mounties arrested a man about 20 minutes after receiving reports of an attempted robbery and a mugging downtown on Tuesday night. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said an employee of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at St. Paul Street and Third Avenue called police at 11:20 p.m. to report a robbery attempt. The suspect had threatened to use a gun, but no weapon had been produced. The man eventually ran from the hotel without getting any cash. While en route to the DoubleTree, Shelkie said, an officer was flagged down by another person, who said he had just been mugged in the street. The description of the suspect matched the description of the man who tried to hold up the hotel employee. Shelkie said Mounties set up a perimeter and a man was found nearby matching the description of the suspect in both robberies. He was arrested without incident. No weapon was found on the suspect, but the stolen items from the mugging victim were found nearby. The suspect is a 39-year-old Kamloops man who is known to police, though Shelkie said there is nothing to indicate a link to other street muggings that have occurred in Kamloops this year. There were no injuries to either the employee at the hotel or to the victim who was mugged. Charges will be determined by Crown counsel.

“In some sense, trafficking in fentanyl is akin to trafficking in a death sentence.”

Dley agreed to a fiveand-a-half-year joint submission presented by Varesi and Gustafson.

In addition to the time behind bars, Kematch will also be barred for life from pos-

believed to have been self-inflicted asphyxiation, but Nathaniel Jessup was charged with second-degree murder last year. Jessup’s B.C. Supreme Court trial began Monday at the Kamloops Law Courts. Prosecutors believe Jessup strangled Judd at some point after lights out in KRCC’s H-Unit at about 10 p.m. on Nov. 9, 2014. Defence lawyers are expected to argue Judd’s death was suicide. On Wednesday, RCMP Cpl. Stephen Merrick testified he was one of two Mounties dispatched to KRCC after Judd was found dead on the morning of Nov. 10, 2014. Merrick said he arrived at the prison and spoke to the deputy warden, Devin Pageau, the corrections officer who located Judd’s body after being alerted by Jessup. “I was told that it was suicide and it was an inmate, Dylan Judd, who had been there [in jail] for about a month,” Merrick said, noting he then looked for injuries and took photos of the scene, typical for a sudden-death investigation. Court has heard Judd was found with a red prison-issue sweater tied tightly around his neck. Merrick said he took statements from Jessup and Pageau, seized the sweater and then handed the investigation over to the BC Coroners Service. “The coroner and body removal arrived on scene,” he said. Also taking the stand on Wednesday was Pageau, who said he found Judd’s death suspicious at the time, but did not believe Jessup was responsible until a year later. In his statement to police on the day Judd was found dead, Pageau told Merrick he was approached by Jessup, who hesitantly told him, “I think my roommate is dead.” In Pageau’s subsequent statement to police, taken in October 2015, he said he walked onto the unit and could sense something was amiss, then spotted Jessup and grew suspicious. “So I picked him out in the crowd,” Pageau told investigators 11

months after his previous statement. “He was standing. I would say. 15 feet from the desk and just had this look about him. So when he looked at me, I said to him, ‘Hey you, what’s your deal? Like what’s your problem today?’ His eyes were big and he walked to the desk and he was like, ‘You need to come and see this.’” Pageau was questioned on the discrepancy by defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen, who played surveillance video of the interaction for court. In the video, Pageau can be seen standing at a desk on the unit, writing something in a notebook, appearing to have his head down. Jessup can be seen approaching him from his cell, with no one else around. The two appear to exchange words briefly before Pageau enters the cell and radios for a lockdown. Under questioning from Jensen and despite the video, Pageau stood his ground, but conceded he may have been using “a figure of speech” when he said he picked Jessup “out of the crowd.” “At the time you gave your statement [in 2015], you believed firmly that Mr. Jessup killed Mr. Judd, correct?” Jensen asked. “Yes,” Pageau replied. Court has heard Judd had been documented as having been suicidal multiple times, including an incident the year before his death. In 2009, Judd underwent a mental-health evaluation at an Ontario hospital after threatening to kill himself by jumping into traffic, Putnam said. In 2013, Judd was arrested under Ontario’s Mental Health Act after police found him holding a knife to his throat, according to records entered as evidence at trial. Prosecutors expect to close their nine-witness case early next week. Defence lawyers have not said whether they will call evidence, but the trial is expected to conclude next week. Jessup has been in custody since September 2015.

Public market proponents still eyeing parking lot at Riverside

Minimum wage to rise

JESSICA WALLACE

B.C.’s general hourly minimum wage will increase to $13.85 from $12.65 this Saturday, while the minimum wage rates for liquor servers, resident caretakers and live-in camp leaders will all also increase. Effective June 1, general minimum wage will increase 9.5 per cent to $13.85 per hour, an increase of $1.20 per hour. Liquor server minimum wage will increase 11.4 per cent to $12.70 per hour, an increase of $1.30 per hour. Resident caretaker minimum wage, per month, will increase 9.5 per cent to $831.45 for those who manage nine to 60 units or $2,832.11 for 61 or more units. Live-in camp leader minimum wage, per day, will increase 9.5 per cent to $110.87. The wage increases for the prov-

A representative of the Kamloops Public Market Co-operative was at city hall on Tuesday, presenting to council the public market concept it hopes to see replicated in the city’s core. It is a vision larger than the one currently pitched as part of the city’s downtown plan. The group’s acting executive director, Daphane Nelson, told KTW that while city planners have pitched a facility in the former Value Village location — at Seymour Street and Fifth Avenue — to enhance downtown, the group has a bigger and broader regional community amenity in mind for the Lorne Street parking lot at Riverside Park. Nelson cited for council Pike Place Market in Seattle, the Public Market in Gibsons, on the Sunshine Coast, and Fork’s Public Market in Winnipeg, She requested from council collaboration and exploration of such models, in turn offering to fundraise for the project.

ince’s lowest-paid workers are the second of four annual increases that will take place on June 1 of each year. Last year, the general per hour minimum wage increased to $12.65 from $11.35. The minimum piece rates for those who hand-harvest crops increased by 11.5 per cent this past January. The increases are the result of recommendations from the Fair Wages Commission, established in October 2017 by the provincial NDP government to advise on an approach to raising provincial minimum wages with increases that are regular, measured and predictable. By June 2021, B.C.’s general minimum wage will reach at least $15.20 per hour and the lower liquor server wage will be eliminated.

A rendering of what a public market next to Heritage House at Riverside Park might look like. In April 2018, council heard the proposal is a 35,000-square foot, two-storey building that wouldn’t impact parking as it would include a parkade below the market.

Coun. Arjun Singh called the initiative a “really neat example” of citizens organizing, but questioned the proposed location. “I’d find it hard to support that at this point,” he said, noting the location has been mired in controversy. Nelson earlier told council that to create a community gathering place, the ideal site is a natural gathering place, a high-profile location with adequate park-

ing and “not a privately owned mall or food court.” Singh questioned the need for ample parking as society shifts toward alternative transportation. Nelson said the public market would continue through the winter months with permanent tenants. “You’ve got the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,” she said. Asked if such facilities should be public or private, Nelson said sometimes buildings are privately owned with non-profits or co-operatives running the facilities and profits returned to the community.

“It depends on who owns it and who runs it, what the model looks like,” she said, noting the group hopes to explore that with the city. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian said a public market fits council’s vision for a healthy Kamloops. Council did not make clear any directions on the matter. An initiative by the co-operative to sell shares in the idea is not being pursued for now. “We put it on hold until we know more about whether the city is interested and wants us to be involved and help out,” Nelson told KTW.

Dream Home More Single Women are Buying Homes

The traditional homebuying demographic is definitely shifting! Today, one of the most influential and growing homebuyer segments in Canada is single women. Women are confidently embracing homeownership like never before and enjoying the pride, satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that it brings. Here are three primary reasons driving this trend: 1. Women can afford to buy solo There are more women in today’s job market than at any other time in our history. They’re highly educated and career focused, which has led to better jobs and higher

earnings. This has provided women with more financial independence and buying power than ever before, enabling them to enter the housing market on their own. 2. Women are opting out of/delaying marriage In the not-too-distant past, marriage was a pre-requisite for women when buying a home. Today, homeownership isn’t dependent on a relationship status or having a family. More single women are either choosing not to get married, or delaying it to pursue their education and career – and they aren’t waiting for marriage before buying a home.

Other circumstances such as the death of a spouse or starting out as a single person following a divorce also explain why more single women are buying a home on their own. 3. Women recognize homeownership as an investment Financially astute and taking charge of their own money, today’s single women understand the long-term value of owning real estate. With monthly rents on the rise, homeownership represents a significant step towards building wealth, equity and longterm financial security.

More Kamloopsians are opting for ebilling when it comes to property tax notices. But for those who prefer to pay in person, there are options other than city hall this year. Property tax notices have been sent out to Kamloops residents by email and Canada Post. Cara Dawson, the city’s revenue and taxation manager said the number of residents opting for e-billing increases each year. In 2016, 515 people received e-bills. In 2017, that number rose to 1,340. Last year, it had grown to 1,643. This year, 1,996 residents are receiving the information via email. To sign up for e-billing for 2020 property taxes, residents need to register with MyCity and add their property tax account at kamloops.ca/MyCity. There are several ways, including online, to pay property taxes and claim the home owner grant (HOG). “The whole process can be done online,” Dawson said. “You can claim your home owner grant at kamloops. ca/eHOG and you can use online banking through your financial institution’s online bill payments option to pay

your property taxes.” To pay using online bill payments, sign into your online banking and search payees for the word “Kamloops.” Then select the Kamloops property tax option as the payee and use the 10-digit folio number on the notice as the account number. “You can also pay in person at your bank, or use telephone banking; however, it is important to note that financial institutions do not accept home owner grant applications,” Dawson said. This year, due to road work happening near city hall as part of the West Victoria Street reconstruction project, residents who want to pay their taxes and claim their HOG in person can visit the city’s temporary property tax/ HOG kiosk at the Tournament Capital Centre, at 910 McGill Road on the TRU campus. The kiosk is located upstairs in the parks and recreation office and will be open Mondays to Fridays, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., from May 27 to July 5. There will be five temporary reserved parking stalls adjacent to the TCC roundabout during that time. Drop boxes are available at city hall (24 hours), at the TCC (5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.) and at the

56% of homeless youth identify as Indigenous JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

Indigenous youth are over-represented among homeless youth in Kamloops, a report released Thursday reveals. The 2018 Kamloops Youth Homelessness Count Report delves beyond the numbers from the city’s second youth homelessness count, which took place a year ago and found that 136 youth identified as experiencing homelessness between May 2017 and May 2018.

tive director Katherine McParland, one of several community partners involved, said some subpopulations are more at risk of youth homelessness. Of 136 homeless youth counted last year, 56 per cent of them Identified as indigenous. “I think there’s a historical piece of colonization and intergenerational trauma, where the Truth and Reconciliation Commission are really telling us to stand up and really support those organizations that are doing very important work to connect youth to their culture,” McParland said. LGBTQ2S+ youth are also at

risk, in addition to those living in unsafe situations. The top reasons for youth homelessness are family conflict, substance use, unsafe housing, eviction, jail and an inability to afford rent. McParland said themes also emerged related to youth living in the child welfare system. “Probably the most interesting thing that I learned was the young people that are under 19 experiencing homelessness, while receiving a youth agreement through the ministry of child and family development,” she said. “I think it shows that our provincial government should

Kamloops Mounties arrested a man about 20 minutes after receiving reports of an attempted robbery and a mugging downtown on Tuesday night. CPl. Jodi Shelkie said an employee of the Double Tree Hotel at St. Paul Street and Third Avenue called police at 11:20 p.m. to report a robbery attempt. The suspect had threatened to use a gun, but no weapon had been produced. The man eventually ran from the hotel without getting any cash.

consider housing as part of that program, as youth face so many barriers to actually securing housing when they’re under 19.” Other gaps identified in the report include affordable housing geared specifically at youth, with supports. Additional recommendations outlined in the report included money to help bridge the affordable housing gap, prevention initiatives, support services geared at indigenous and LGBTQ2S+ youth and employment and education supports. Listening to youth was also underscored as a priority. McParland sees a role for the

While en route to the Double Tree Hotel, Shelkie said, an officer was flagged down by another person, who said he had just been mugged in the street. The description of the suspect matched the description of the man who tried to hold up the hotel employee. Shelkie said Mounties set up a perimeter and a man was found nearby matching the description of the suspect in both robberies.

federal, provincial and local governments. The province has the most significant role and she continues to advocate for a provincial plan to end youth homelessness, meeting with the province monthly. “A lot of the pathways to youth homelessness, such as young people coming out of corrections, coming out of the foster care system, are connected to provincial ministries,” she said, noting 10 provincial ministries are linked to the problem. “I think they have a real opportunity.” The next youth homelessness count will take place in 2020.

He was arrested without incident. No weapon was found on the suspect, but the stolen items from the mugging victim were found nearby. The suspect is a 39-year-old Kamloops man who is known to police, though Shelkie said there is nothing to indicate a link to other street muggings that have occurred in Kamloops this year. There were no injuries to either the employee at the hotel or to the victim who was mugged. Charges will be determined by Crown counsel.

COMMUNITY

Introducing the Mount Paul Community Food Centre The Mount Paul Community Food Centre will open its doors to the community next Tuesday, with an an open house celebra­ tion of its official launch. In September 2016, Interior Community Services bought the Mount Paul United Church in North Kamloops and undertook a major renovation of the build­ ing at 140 Laburnum St., includ­ ing an extensive renovation of the exterior and interior of the building, an expansion of a com­ mercial kitchen and the addition of an educational garden. From there, Interior Community Services has operated programs with a focus on nutrition, health, social change and growing

community capacity. Now, as a result of a partnership between Interior Community Services and Com­ munity Food Centres Canada, the Mount Paul Community Food Centre is the 11th Community Food Centre in Canada and one of only two in B.C. “The Mount Paul Community Food Centre aims to empower, engage, and support the com­ munity with barrier­free food programs,” centre manager Dawn Christie said. “Community members can access healthy food, expand their food skills and literacy, improve their health, find new friends and support and take action on

community issues.” Nick Saul, president and CEO of Community Food Centres Canada, said community food centres use food as a tool to build better health, belonging and social justice. “It’s absolutely unaccept­ able that so many people in Kamloops and across this prov­ ince and country struggle every day to put food on the table,” Saul said. “Poverty and food insecurity have serious impacts on people’s health and on us as a society. We need to take action.” Grand opening of the com­ munity food centre will take place next Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Gemstone a Safety Den winner Kamloops’ Brocklehurst Gemstone Care Centre has won the grand prize in the Safety Den Competition, taking home $1,000. Gemstone was one of six finalists chosen to make presentations in Whistler this week. The fourth annual Safety Den is a Dragons’ Den­style competition, in which contestants pitch their innova­ tive ideas to reduce workplace injuries and improve the lives of those in care. The four Safety Dragons listened

to each presentation and posed questions to the finalists. To encourage staff engagement in health and safety, Gemstone developed a Safety Star Program to create safety leaders, who have are involved in making decisions about health and safety within the organization. A cre­ atively designed pack­ age was created, includ­ ing a special lanyard identifying staff who are Safety Stars. Since initiating the program a few months ago, more staff have

been signing on to become Safety Stars, building a culture of health and safety. The Safety Star pro­ gram was developed by Shelly Cantelo, clini­ cal practice and safety manager at Gemstone. “I am grateful to our Gemstone Safety Stars, who have been leading the pursuit towards a workplace that is free of injury or harm,” Cantelo said. Jen Lyle, CEO for SafeCare BC, the health and safety association for the 28,000 con­ tinuing care work­

ers throughout the province, noted the continuing care sector has some of the highest workplace injury rates compared to all occu­ pations in the province. “This has a huge impact, not only on the quality and consistency of care, but also on the staffing shortages affecting the sector,” Lyle said. “The Safety Den allows us to cele­ brate and recognize the innovative ideas and solutions that organiza­ tions are implementing to reduce workplace injuries.”

Trade discussed at meeting of Trudeau, Pence MIKE BLANCHFIELD

CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “drove a hard bargain’’ when it came to negotiating a new trilateral North American trade pact, U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence said Thursday as he promised an earnest effort to get the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement through Congress before the summer recess. Pence, in the national capital for a day-long visit focused primarily on trade issues and

relations with China, made the commitment twice: once during a photo-op handshake with the prime minister, then again during a gathering that featured some of the central advisers to the so-called “Team Canada’’ NAFTA negotiating team, including Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland. “We really do believe that the USMCA is an idea whose time has come,’’ Pence told the panel. “Our administration is working earnestly with leaders in the Congress of the United States to approve the

USMCA this summer.’’ The relationship between the two countries is stronger than it has ever been, thanks to the leadership of both Trump and Trudeau, declared the vice-president, who is widely seen as a more even-tempered and diplomatic White House emissary than his outspoken and unpredictable boss. “I want to assure the people of Canada that the prime minister drove a hard bargain, as did our president,’’ he said during Thursday’s earlier event. “I want

to assure you that we’re making energetic efforts to move the approval through the Congress of the United States this summer.’’ The ratification of the new trade deal was expected to a packed agenda as the two leaders met behind closed doors, although they both made it clear that relations with China would also be top of mind during the discussions. While Trudeau has said he also wants to talk about what he calls the backsliding of women’s rights in the U.S. with Pence, a well-

known opponent of abortion, neither leader mentioned the issue during Thursday morning’s brief press availability. Pence arrived shortly before midday at the airport in Ottawa, disembarking from a Boeing C-32 bearing the familiar blue, white and gold markings of the U.S. executive branch — the airliner typically designated as Air Force Two. He and his wife Karen were promptly bundled into separate black SUVs for the motorcade journey into the national capital.

Alberta set to pass law to kill carbon tax as federal tax looms CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — Alberta’s consumer carbon tax is dead, setting the stage for a showdown with Ottawa over the imposition of a new one. The province cancelled its tax on gasoline at the pumps and on home heating fuels just after midnight Thursday morning. Later in the day, the legislature was to pass third and final reading of An Act to Repeal the Carbon Tax to make the change official. The bill was a signature campaign promise of Premier Jason Kenney’s United Conservatives, who won a majority government last month. Kenney told the house Thursday that the bill delivers a merciful end to a tax that didn’t stop the global rise of greenhouse gas emissions but did hurt working families.

“We have barely been in office for a month and we are already, today, delivering to Albertans the biggest tax break in our province’s history,’’ Kenney told the house as his UCP caucus members applauded. In Ottawa, Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna decried Alberta’s decision to end the provincial carbon tax, which she nicknamed the “make pollution free again bill.’’ She said Canada will move quickly to impose the federal version on Alberta. “We’re looking to do it as soon as possible,’’ said McKenna. Alberta now joins New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan — provinces that have declined to impose their own carbon levys, leaving Ottawa to impose one for them.

Fires force more people from homes in Alberta CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — A wildfire prompted an eight-hour evacuation alert on Thursday for a northern Alberta town that was partially destroyed in a 2011 blaze. Slave Lake Mayor Tyler Warman said the fire was not an immediate threat and people weren’t being forced out like they were more than a week ago in High Level, 485 kilometres to the north. He said the flames were still about 30 kilometres away from Slave Lake as of midday, but officials wanted residents to be prepared to leave. “We’ve got a fire, that started around the same time as the High Level one, that’s been north of town for a while,’’ Warman said. “The wind

conditions and the extreme dryness have pushed some of it closer to town.’’ Slave Lake was the latest community to be put on evacuation alert, as several fires rage out-of-control in northern Alberta and blanketed areas to the south in an acrid haze. Many of the 5,000 people forced out of the High Level area on the Victoria Day long weekend are being housed in Slave Lake. An evacuation order was issued Thursday for Chipewyan Lake Village, about 450 kilometres north of Edmonton, because of a rapidly moving wildfire that threatened to cut off access to the area. And different fires forced evacuations from the hamlet of Wabasca, the Bigstone Cree Nation and Northern Lights County.

WORLD NEWS OPINION

Making sense of elections in the European Union

T

he best way of describing what just happened in the European Union elections is to say the choices are getting clearer — and a lot of people are realizing which side they are on. The elections to the EU Parliament held last week in 28 European countries — including the United Kingdom, since three years after the Brexit referendum, it still hasn’t managed to leave — was the second-biggest democratic exercise in the world. Only India’s elections are bigger. About 400-million Europeans were eligible to vote and half of them actually did. The choice before them, in most member countries, was less EU or more EU. Should the European Union become the semidetached Europe of the Fatherlands the nationalists and the populists demand or continue to work on creating joint institutions (like the euro common currency) that bring the members closer together? There will never be a single answer to that question, but the two sides are sorting themselves out and you can now get a feel for the way things are going. The hard-line nationalists took 30 per cent of the vote in Italy (the Lega), 32 per cent in the U.K. (the Brexit Party), 45 per cent in Poland (the Law and Justice Party), and 52 per cent in Viktor Orban’s illiberal democracy in Hungary. Yet, apart from the Brexit Party, they are no longer trying to leave the EU. Populist demagogues in other EU countries — who five years ago were advocating a Frexit in France, a Nexit in the Netherlands and so on — have watched

GWYNNE DYER World

WATCH the tragicomic megashambles of Britain’s attempted Brexit and decided the wiser course is to stay in the EU and try to dominate it from within. They made some headway in this election, but they still control only 112 of the European Parliament’s 750 seats. It’s not even certain that they can all come together as a single bloc. France’s National Rally, for example, is seen by some other farright parties in the EU as too pro-Russian and encumbered by a history of anti-Semitism. If this is a tidal wave, it’s a fairly small one. There was another, slightly bigger tsunami on the more EU side of the argument, mainly because the Greens did so well, finishing second in Germany and third in France. Strongly pro-EU liberal parties did well, too — notably the Liberal Democrats in the U.K., who came second there — and together they have added more seats on that side of the argument than the nationalists did on the other extreme. The real value of this election is that it offers a reality check on the burning question of the day: Is Trumpism really going to sweep Europe like it swept America? The answer is no — or at least not so much. Nationalist parties that strike authoritarian postures and flirt with racist, antiimmigrant and antiMuslim themes did

well in some Eastern European countries (although they have few immigrants and almost no Muslims). But in Western Europe, only one populist party, Italy’s Lega, improved on its last showing. In France, the National Rally got only 24 per cent of the vote, whereas its predecessor, the National Front, garnered 34 per cent of the vote in the 2017 presidential election. The Brexit Party in the United Kingdom received 32 per cent of the vote, which sounds impressive, since its predecessor, the United Kingdom Independence Party, managed only 26 per cent in the last EU election in 2014. But if you add the Conservative vote (which is mostly proBrexit) to the Brexit Party vote in this election and compare it with the UKIP/ Conservative votes last time, the pro-Brexit share of the vote is down from 49 per cent in 2014 to 41 per cent today. This suggests the Trump virus is less virulent in Europe and raises the further question: Will the U.K. really crash out of the EU by Oct. (the current deadline) or will there be a second referendum that calls off the whole quixotic enterprise? It’s starting to feel like Brexit never happening is around a 50-50 proposition. One symptom of the fear Brexiters now feel is their increasingly shrill insistence there must be no new referendum. Never mind that Nigel Farage, founder of both UKIP and the Brexit Party, talked about a second referendum when it looked like “Remain” was going to score a narrow win early on the evening of the first referendum in 2016. It ended up 52 per cent “Leave” and 48 per cent “Remain.”

Never mind, either, that Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has just announced she will publish draft legislation on a second referendum on Scottish independence from the U.K. this week. The first one, in 2014, rejected independence by a 55-44 per cent vote. The Brexit referendum is sacred, Brexiters say, and nobody is allowed to change their mind about it. However, the EU election was treated by almost all British voters as an informal referendum on Brexit and it’s now pretty clear what would happen in a real one. It’s going to be a very hectic five months in British politics. Read more Gwynne Dyer columns online at kamloopsthisweek.com, under the Opinion tab.

Trump erupts after special counsel says he’s not exonerated ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump angrily assailed special counsel Robert Mueller’s motives on Thursday, a day after Mueller bluntly rebuffed Trump’s repeated claims that the Russia investigation had cleared him of obstructing justice. The president also offered mixed messages on Russia’s efforts to help him defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign. Early in the day, Trump tweeted he had “nothing to do with Russia helping me get elected.’’ That was the first time he seemed to acknowledge that Russia tried to help his campaign. Then on the White House South Lawn, Trump told reporters: “Russia did not help me get elected. You know who got me elected? You know who got me elected? I got me elected. Russia didn’t help me at all.’’ Mueller’s report said Russia interfered in the election in hopes of getting Trump elected, but his findings and intelligence officials have stopped short of saying the efforts contributed to Trump’s victory. Trump’s 20-minute eruption underscored that he remains deeply distressed over the probe that has shadowed his presidency for nearly two years, even after Mueller

announced his resignation and the closure of his office. Democrats are mulling the possibility of impeachment proceedings. Trump insisted that he’s been tough on Russia and that Moscow would have preferred Clinton as president. But that’s not what Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. When asked last year in Helsinki whether he wanted Trump to become president, Putin replied: “Yes, I did.’’ On Wednesday, Mueller, in his first public remarks on the Russia investigation, pointedly rejected Trump’s claims — repeated almost daily — that the special counsel’s investigation cleared him of criminal activity and was a “witch hunt.’’ Mueller emphasized that he had not exonerated Trump on the question of whether he obstructed justice, but said charging Trump with any crime was “not an option’’ because of Justice Department rules. “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,’’ Mueller declared. Trump repeated his baseless claims that Mueller is “conflicted,’’ contending that Mueller, who served as FBI director under President George W. Bush, wanted his old job back, but that he had told him no.

Young director frames up documentary on men’s mental health Josef Perszon is vying for a Telus Storyhive grant, with voting ending on Friday SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

f you count the stop motion films Josef Perszon used to make with Lego, he’s been a filmmaker for eight years now — a sizable chunk of his life. But while his early days were amateur efforts, he’s gone whole hog into the professional world. For the past three years, he’s been working at local picture joint Joy Factory Films and soaking up every bit of knowledge he can. “Recently I’ve been on kind of a detour into cinematography and editing, learning more technical work,” he told KTW. The 22-year-old filmmaker said through shooting wedding videos, he is “learning how to create stories from reality,” and has found a love for telling stories that already exist, rather than creating them from nothing as he did before. “But I feel myself coming back around and turned on to more directing. I would really love to do some of my own indie work and on documentaries,” he said.

He might get the chance. Perszon has made his pitch for a Telus Storyhive grant worth $50,000 and is vying to be one of the 30 people selected to receive a grant of more than 300 who wound up in the voting stage of the competition. The film is called Boy Man King, a documentary focused on Jake Birkeland, a local man who started his own gym that addresses both physical and mental health among men. It’s where Perszon met his subject. “We started out making educational videos together — about how to work out together, proper form, but it morphed into other advice and how physical training can train you mentally and help you in everyday life,” he said. The idea of physical training to stay mentally healthy has resonated with Perszon and through Birkeland, he’s pursuing these ideas. “These aren’t things I necessarily have answers for, but I do want to explore the topic in a documentary,” he said. The mental health link is strong with Birkeland, whose

mother died in 2017 just as he was starting his company. She suffered with mental health issues in her life. Perszon called it a pivotal point in Birkeland’s story. “It’s kind of his driving force behind trying to help people,” he said. The interview list thus far is made up of local fitness experts, but would also include a foray into Florida to interview Elliot

Hulse, the founder of Strength Camp — upon which the gym is based — and Birkeland’s mentor. “We’re going to try to follow his (Birkeland’s) story, but along the way we’re also learning lessons as they relate to men’s physical and mental health,” Perszon said. Perszon is also getting some help from fellow Kamloops filmmaker Vesta Giles, who will produce the documentary.

They include Friedrich, a tough-exterior “man of the family” 14-year-old, the rebellious

13-year-old Louisa, mischievous 10-year old Kurt, nine-year-old book-lover Brigitta, sweet and gentle seven-year-old Marta and six-year-old Gretl. The time commitment for these acts will run from Nov. 4 to Dec. 11, and the play itself will run from Nov. 28 to Dec. 11 at Sagebrush Theatre.

A Christian music festival will take over the Rotary Bandshell in Riverside Park this weekend. Rise Kamloops is a new event in town being put on by the Pregnancy Care Centre as a fundraiser. The event will be familyfriendly and feature free admission and is the brainchild of Maureen Colledge, the organization’s executive director. It is

Bethel Kamloops, BTC North, KAC Worship, Danny Sczebel, Kamloops Performance Company, Chioma Darah and Heather Clark. “We’ll have different genres of music, everything from bluegrass to more contemporary and some acoustic as well,” Lal said. Lal said the church-going crowd is “certainly part of [their] target market” but hopes the festival also has broad appeal

among those in the downtown area. “It’s going to be a celebration of life, of music, really,” he said. Lal said he’s hoping the event will raise a few thousand dollars for the pregnancy care centre, and will include t-shirt and hat sales and a concession stand. The group will also be asking for donations from the audience. The event will run from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday at the Rotary Bandshell in Riverside Park.

Stormy Daniels will make an appearance at Duchess Nightclub on Sunday. The award-winning porn actress, who wrote a tell-all book about her encounter with U.S. President Donald Trump and the ensuing $130,000 payment he made to her, will talk about her book and hold a fan meet-andgreet at the Kamloops strip club. Doors open for the event at 7 p.m. and Daniels will speak from about 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. with the meet-and-greet to follow until midnight, according to club promoter Riis Ingalls. Daniels’ book, Full Disclosure, was released in October 2018. The adult film star shot to mainstream fame after she came forward claiming she had an affair with Trump in 2006-2007. Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen, who went to prison this month, made a $130,000 payment to Daniels days before the 2016 election, with the money intended to keep her from talking about the tryst. Tickets are $50 to $100 and can be purchased by calling 250-3765168 or by sending a Facebook message to Duchess on Tranquille.

Why Mormons no longer want to be called Mormons

M

aybe you’ve heard the news. If not, here it is: For almost 200 years, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been called Mormons. This year though, that church is asking its members to do one thing with that nickname — stop using it. Why? When the church was organized by Joseph Smith in 1830, it was simply called the Church of Jesus Christ. It wasn’t until many years later that “of Latter-day Saints” was added. At that time, the nickname “Mormon” was used by enemies of the church as an insult. It may have been used to demean and remind members they weren’t accepted as Christians, but more importantly, it removed Jesus Christ’s name from the church. Throughout history, this nickname has created confusion about what the church believes and who its members follow.

ANDREW LAMB

You Gotta Have

FAITH

The term “Mormon” comes from the name of the primary author of The Book of Mormon. The man, Mormon, was a prophet who lived around 400 CE. He was a a member of the Nephites, one of a quartet of groups described in the Book of Mormon as having settled in the ancient Americas. During much of his life, Mormon compiled and commented on 1,000 years of his nation’s history. As almost the last of his people who believed in Jesus Christ, he had taken on this immense project in a final effort to tell his nation and its descendants that Christ lived. Many of their ancestors had been

firm in their faith of Christ and were anxious to have their testimonies of Jesus shared with their descendants. So, with inspiring faith, Mormon endured incredible trials to make sure that could happen, including working in hiding after his country fell to an enemy that wasn’t planning to take prisoners. The history he compiled and the wisdom and prophecies he and his son shared became what the world knows today as The Book of Mormon. Since the founding of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1830, most of its presidents and many of its apostles have expressed concerns about Mormon’s name being used as single word descriptor. They often requested that it be avoided whenever possible. Despite these requests, and because of how much easier it is to say, the nickname continued to be used within the church. There have even been times when the church embraced the nickname in an effort

to generate conversations about it and answer the questions people have. Finally, however, the confusion inherent to that situation is coming to an end. In October 2018, the current president of the church, Russell M. Nelson, reminded its members in a great sermon that “the name of the church is not negotiable” and that “when we omit His name from His church, we are inadvertently removing Him as the central focus of our lives.” Since then, Nelson has begun the process of removing the nickname and once again bringing to the forefront the true name of the church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many of the efforts to restore Jesus Christ’s name — and remove the nickname — are already visible. The church’s websites are getting new names, its news branch is being renamed and even the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a new monicker: The Tabernacle Choir. The church wants

Celebrating Guru Nanak’s birthday and giving to RIH KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

As it prepares to celebrate the 550th birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Ji in November, the Sikh Cultural Society of Kamloops is collecting donations for Royal Inland Hospital via the Guru Nanak Fund that exists at the hospital. The society is urging all Kamloopsians to donate to the Guru Nanak Fund, money from which is used to buy muchneeded items for the hospital. Donations can be made through the Sikh Cultural Society of Kamloops, which is located the Sikh Temple at 700 Cambridge Cres. on the North Shore. Receipts will be issued to donors who contribute until November, when a cheque for the total amount raised will be

Guru Nanak Dev Ji

presented to RIH officials. The Guru Nanak Fund was established in 2003 by the Sikh Cultural Society of Kamloops. Since then, more than $165,000 has been raised to

help Royal Inland Hospital. Of that amount, $30,000 was collected by Tarsem Singh Gill and sons Sukhwinder Singh and Surinder Singh via the annual Indo-Can Golf Tournament. The fund is named after Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the Sikh religion’s founder and first guru, who was born in 1469 in Nankanna Sahib, which is in modern-day Pakistan. Guru Nanak spread a simple message: “We are all one, created by one creator of all creation.” His message to humanity was to work hard, meditate in God’s name and give to the less fortunate. Guru Nanak believed in equality and held women and men in the same regard, insisting they should have equal rights.

O

ur whirlwind getaway starts with a B.C. Ferry cruise across scenic Georgia Strait. Disembarking at Nanaimo’s Duke Point terminal, we settle 37 kilometres north in Parksville, our favourite Vancouver Island destination. Overlooking beautiful Craig Bay, Sunrise Ridge Resort becomes the perfect base for reconnoitering area attractions. Set amid soaring evergreens, our spacious condo’s wellequipped kitchen sparks selfcatering excitement. Following a trail to the beach below, we happily familiarize ourselves further. Next morning’s adventure begins 10-kilometres west in Coombs’ eclectic shops. Old Country Market dominates this funky village. Nicknamed “Goats on the Roof,” sweet nannies and frisky kids graze its sod rooftop. Inside, shelves brim with imported specialties. We gather artisan breads, local cheeses and nutritious deli-salads — and produce at an outside stand. In the central courtyard’s outdoor gallery, sculptured marble gods, exotic animals and comical dogs driving cars inspire and amuse. Steps away, family-owned Cuckoo’s Trattoria and Pizzeria prompts an unhurried lunch. Sipping herbed Italian lemonades in patio shade, we select scrumptious, thin-crust pizzas from the menu’s enticing traditional dishes. Nearby, Butterfly World introduces us to Asian and South American winged beauties. Flying freely, they sometimes land on sliced fruit and sometimes on us. Flowering shrubs attract flam-

boyant blue morphos — swallowtails hover and flutter. Suspended in the emerging area, cocooned pupae await their delicate adult wings. Here, an attendant shows us tiny, about-to-hatch butterfly eggs on a leaf’s underside. Up the highway, MacMillan Provincial Park furnishes a diverse forest ecosystem. On both sides of the highway, boardwalks encircle Cathedral Grove’s 800-year-old Douglas firs. Illustrated placards detail unique aspects of these endangered giants. Stopping at Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park, an easy path along moss-covered bluffs loops us around its canyon to splendid waterfalls. Wooden bridges span Qualicum River and permit thrilling closeups of tiered Upper Falls crashing into the canyon. Trailside viewpoints feature

Lower Falls’ gentler cascading vistas. Back at the condo, palate-pleasing sundeck meals enhance daily fun-factors. Simple cooking seems effortless, even festive. Comfortfood dinners like fresh asparagus and poached eggs on toast help us unwind — granola, banana and yogurt parfaits launch actionpacked days. Leaving the condo another morning, we pedal our bikes into Rathtrevor Beach Park. Weaving past families staking out spots on its renowned two-kilometre-long beach, we roll smoothly through forested campgrounds, out into an adjacent neighbourhood. Gradually, the quiet roadway curves inland. Braking near Englishman River’s lush delta to admire dramatic Mount Arrowsmith beyond, we return to the resort. Leisurely spa soaks

reward our endeavor. That afternoon, Milner Gardens and Woodland in Qualicum Beach proves another highlight. Winding forested pathways bring us to fences defending treasured plants against marauding deer. Inside the high, latched gate, a student art collection catches our eye. Among striking metal sculptures exhibited on the Artist Trail, dangling abstract bluebirds, a big-eyed owl, koala bear and silver cello stand out. Another path takes us among enormous heritage rhodos, gloriously red, pink and lavender. From atop an ocean-side bluff looking overlooking Georgia Strait, we survey stunning Coastal Mountains. An illustrated panel and powerful telescope help us to identify snowcapped peaks as far away as

Vancouver’s stately Lions. Across grand lawns, a storyboard at Milner House unveils unexpected history. Often planting specimens found during extensive business travels, the Milners developed this idyllic four-hectare English garden into their retreat. It served as a haven for royalty when hosting cousin Diana, Princess of Wales and Prince Charles in 1986. And again, in 1987 when Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip stayed. Today, the elegant Camellia Tea Room serves afternoon tea to the public. These outstanding gardens host numerous special events each year. Returning to Parksville, we check out the community park. At the skateboard playground, wheeled tricksters perform entertaining stunts. Monstrous black octopus kites drift and dive above. While beachcombers investigate tide-pools on expansive sands, we meander the oceanfront promenade. At the boardwalk’s end, a shaded pavilion provides a pleasant breather before heading back. Morningstar Farm wraps up our explorations. Home to Little Qualicum Cheeseworks and MooBerry Winery, this 36-hectare working dairy offers lots to do. Airy barns shelter bunnies, goats, piglets and weeks-old calves. The “Moo-seum” displays family history and early machinery. Folks buy fresh milk on tap at Canada’s first dispenser. Meanwhile, we sample mouthwatering cheeses and award-winning wines over in Farmgate Store. Homeward bound with Island goodies, we carry lasting memories of three fun-filled days around Parksville.

TRU WolfPack basketball team enters Nogic era MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Goran English is just another dialect of basketball’s universal language, an unorthodox pivot from lexicon heard by TRU WolfPack women for the past 13 years. Media were invited this week to watch Belgrade, Serbia, native Goran Nogic conduct a practice, his first since being named the Canada West club’s head coach on May 15 and the first WolfPack training session (outside of trial runs during the interview process) of the post-Scott Reeves era. Reeves had been in charge since 2006-2007. Athletic director Curtis Atkinson, who began his tenure last January, chose to cut ties with Reeves in March. “I told them I have my English,” Nogic said. “I speak the Goran English.” Nogic held court with reporters for nearly 15 minutes and dulled concern of language barrier tripping up the Pack. Some English was a touch broken, but everyone got the picture. “He speaks basketball. We speak basketball. That’s all you need,” said fifth-year guard Leilani Carney, a Burnaby product. “He talks a little differently, but we’re already used to it.” Nogic and his family — wife Olivera and daughters Jovana, 21, and Nevena, 12 — moved to North America in 2015 from Portugal, where the coach built his resume guiding men’s and women’s amateur and professional teams. The move to Canada was made primarily to make it easier to visit Jovana, who played for the NCAA Division 1 Providence Friars from 2015 to 2019, a tenure she parlayed into a contract with a Spanish pro team. Nogic put his career aspirations on hold, but ran 3D Basketball Academy in North Vancouver while his wife established a childcare business and Nevena settled into a new country and elementary school. “And now I would like to

proceed,” Nogic said, noting his wife and youngest daughter will remain in North Vancouver next season so Nevena can finish Grade 7 with her friends and Olivera can formulate business plans. Atkinson ran down references and spoke to hoops-savvy folks across North America and Europe, with exceptional feedback among reasons Nogic got the gig. Now the work begins for the 47-year-old bench boss who is tasked with turning around a program that is 104-189 since inception has been eliminated in Round 1 in each of its five post-season appearances, none of which have come in the past three years. “I didn’t come here to stay in the same position,” Nogic said. “I believe we will manage to do some changes even in the first season, but of course that is some process because most of the

players are recruited without my knowledge.” By the sound of things, returning players have one season to prove they belong. Establishing positions and securing playing time will become even tougher when international players start to arrive. “I have the green light to bring some international recruitment,” said Nogic, hired in part because of overseas basketball connections. “It must be clearly someone who will make a huge difference and impact on the program. I don’t want to bring them just because they’re international.” Audrey Rankin, an Upper Marlboro, Md., product who played for TRU in 2016-2017, is the only international player in WolfPack women’s basketball history. The Pack can carry up to three

international players, but Nogic said he will likely wait until 20202021 to bring any to Kamloops. Task No. 1 is familiarizing the current group with an entirely foreign system, a brand new philosophy that will be taught in Goran English. “It was skills we’d never done before,” said Megan Rouault, a third-year guard from Vernon. “All new things. Not everyone is here right now and not everyone will be here until September. We can all mostly understand him. When we didn’t, he used hand signals. It’s not bad at all.” Added second-year guard Emily Ferguson of Kamloops: “It’s completely different. We do a lot more skill work. Everybody is corrected. It’s a great thing. The adjustment is going to take a while.” Strong defensive fundamentals

are key to Nogic’s philosophy. “I like to play behind the concept control the game,” Nogic said. “At the same time, I love when you have creative players. The most beautiful part of basketball is to show creativity. “If they don’t manage to improve and play the way that I think, we will probably have to make some changes to the roster.” Players have about five months until the regular season begins and one year to make sure they’re not lost in translation. “We’re better than a lot of people think we are,” Carney said. “With the type of players we have and a coach that can really develop us to be better and execute on the floor, I don’t think playoffs is an insane goal to have. “The coach has a vision. I’ll trust in that and see where it goes.”

RIVERSHORE CHRYSLER DODGE JEEP RAM “WHERE KAMLOOPS COMES TO SAVE”

Teams of three will soon be shooting from downtown — while in downtown. The 300-block of Victoria Street will transform into four basketball courts for Bank3, a three-on-three basketball tournament being held on Saturday and Sunday, along with a back-alley block party. The free-to-attend basketball games begin at 9 a.m. each day and will run until 4 p.m. Beer gardens, placed between two sets of courts, will be open throughout the day. Organizer Jesse Faubert said the idea stems from the success of similar tournaments elsewhere — and comes at a time when Canadians are riding high on the success of the Toronto Raptors, who are now taking part in the NBA Finals. “Having seen other sporting events and events that have closed down Victoria Street, I always thought it’d be a really interactive thing. It’s really easy to watch and approachable,” he said. Faubert cited past events — such as Brewloops and the Royal Cup road hockey tournament — for making his tournament possible. “Brewloops has done such an incredible job at opening the doors for the city being comfortable with shutting down blocks

for things,” he said. Another event cited by Faubert is Hoopfest — the annual three-on-three tournament held in Spokane, Wash., that has grown to be the world’s largest, encompassing 45 city blocks with more than 6,000 teams and 225,000 people in attendance. Faubert said he’s happy with the number of participants that have signed up — 32 teams in all — and although the event is no Hoopfest, he has sought advisors from that event to look at Kamloops’ capacity for a larger tournament. “The landscape of downtown Kamloops is surprisingly flat, so in terms of scaling it, there’s a lot of room for growth,” Faubert said.

A youth football coach himself, Faubert said he wanted the proceeds for the event to go to something he cared about, and managed to get Freshslice Pizza to come on as the event’s title sponsor, along with its Freshslice Cares charity, which will distribute the funds to sports associations in the community. Registered teams for the event paid $200 each to attend. Once the street ball beefs have been squashed, partygoers can head north to a back alley and parking lot off Lansdowne Street, where a host of activities is planned as part of the Summer League Block Party, a ticketed event running concurrently. The block party event includes fitness classes from noon to 4 p.m. and live music and mural painting by local artists from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., with local breweries and restaurants taking part. On Saturday, bands on the docket include local acts At Mission Dolores and The Houses (Where We Grew Up) with Post-Modern Connection from Kelowna and Wrecked Beach from Vancouver. Sunday’s music will be more hip hop focused, with artists from Vancouver, Calgary and Kamloops. Block party tickets are available for $20 each or $30 for a weekend pass, online at ninthcompany.com.

Claybrooks trusting staff GEMMA KARSTENS-SMITH

CANADIAN PRESS

It’s tough to slack off at B.C. Lions training camp this season. Not only are the coaches paying attention, but they know all the ways a player might cheat to save himself some energy, says wide receiver Bryan Burnham. “They know every trick in the book,” Burnham said with a laugh. “So when they see it, they’re on top of you quick. So you can’t really get anything past them. You’re working.” While nine of B.C.’s 11 coaches are new to the club this season,

they’re not new to the game, with many coming to coaching shortly after hanging up their cleats. Among the new faces is head coach DeVone Claybrooks, a 41-yearold Virginia native who spent last season as a defensive co-ordinator for Grey Cup-winning Calgary. He took over the role in November, following the retirement of longtime Lions’ bench boss Wally Buono. Training camp has been a learning experience for the first-time coach. “The craziest part is you walk around and you’re trying to see

everything, but you realize you can’t because you’ve only got two eyes and you’ve got offensive and defensive walkthrough at the same time,” said Claybrooks. “You’ve also got to trust that your coaches know the standard of what you want to coach and how you want to coach.” Claybrooks completely revamped the Lions’ coaching staff, keeping only offensive co-ordinator Jarious Jackson and receivers coach Markus Howell. The former NFL lineman filled many of the open positions with young former players, including defensive

backs coach Ryan Phillips, who spent 12 seasons with the Lions, to running backs coach Nik Lewis, who won two Grey Cups as a receiver for the Calgary Stampeders. Claybrooks also hired Rich Stubler, one of the CFL’s most renowned football minds, as defensive co-ordinator and linebackers coach. “You don’t want to have a coach who’s never done it, who’s learned it off the boards from somebody else so he doesn’t know the intricacies or the nuances of playing the position technically. So you get that insight,” he said.

Classics fare well at international meet Eleven Kamloops Classic Swimming club athletes competed at the Mel Zajac Junior International last weekend in Vancouver.

the 200m breaststroke. Jack Savage placed 52nd in the 200m backstroke, Keana Smart was ninth in the 50m backstroke junior final and Cate Wharton placed 123rd in the 100m freestyle. The meet featured Canadian and U.S. junior national swim teams and 825 swimmers from 92 teams across North America.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Evelyn June “Cricket” Wallace

Audrey Verle Eloise Thiessen

receiving a thoughtful gift wrapped in love. Her lifelong love of gardening will always be evident in her front yard on Fraser Street.

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your field. Evelyn Wallace, lovingly known to her family and friends as “Cricket”, gracefully slipped away from us into a wonderful sunset on May 27, 2019 in Kamloops, British Columbia. Mom was born on June 3, 1944 in Vancouver, BC to Elsie Penny and Harry Chernoff. She married Gary Wallace in October 1965. Out of that love were born Deborah Lee, Daniel Bruce and Dale Robert. Mom and Dad moved from the rainy Surrey suburbs to the desert hills of Barnhartvale in the summer of 1972. Mom and Dad would go their separate ways in the late 70s and in the ensuing years, Mom packed us into her Toyota Corolla and moved us into the home of Ray Wallace on Nicola Street. The blended “Brady Bunch” family soon included William, Rosemarie, Stephen and Judy (and Falcon and Pumpkin). Mom would go on to own Flowers by Valleyview, Monte Creek Husky and spent several years working with Ray at Wallace Upholstery. Cricket had many passions including Rotary and volunteering around Kamloops but it was her lifetime spent with the Girl Guides of Canada where she excelled, enjoying the company of her fellow Guiders and leading by example for generations of women in the Guiding movement. Starting in 1969 as a Brownie leader, Mom spent the next 40 years moving up the Guiding ladder to key leadership positions including Council Commissioner and Lead Trainer. She was an Honourary Member of Girl Guides of Canada and was granted a place in the Girl Guides of Canada’s Book of Honour for outstanding BC Guiders who exemplify the spirit of Guiding. Mom loved to travel with Ray, spending time either cruising the Caribbean seas or jetting off to exotic lands including Bali, India and Australia. Mom loved to spend her summers at the family cabin on Little Shuswap Lake, entertaining friends and family, reading a good book on the deck or just feeding the chipmunks. Mom especially loved the Christmas season. We always looked forward to her baking and world famous teriyaki wings, but it was the grandchildren who couldn’t wait for Santa’s arrival to the basement and everyone

(née Burns)

To her family and friends, Cricket was full of fun and laughter, always bringing a warm smile with her kindness, thoughtfulness and gentle spirit. She was an exceptional woman whose spirit will live on in all the many people whose lives she touched.

Audrey Verle Eloise Thiessen (née Burns) was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on November 29, 1918. She passed peacefully in Burnaby, BC on May 23, 2019.

Mom was predeceased by her mother Elsie, father Raymond Penny and stepson Stephen. She is survived by her daughter Deb (Zieg), son Dan (Dawn), son Dale (Carrie), her husband Raymond and his daughter Rosemarie (Grant), his daughter Judy (George), his son William, her grandchildren Lindsay, Ashley, Kristen, Jean-Yves, Scott, Robert, Matthew, Simon, Sarah, Jason, her seven great-grandchildren, her sister Marilyn (Bob), her sister Carol, her daughter-in-law Donna Wallace, lifelong friends Gary (Myrna) Wallace and Shirley (Fred) Parchoc and her many nieces and nephews. Mom was loved and respected by many in Kamloops and we will all miss her dearly.

The places Audrey lived and worked in Saskatchewan were Moose Jaw, Yorkton and Saskatoon. She met our DadDavid Thiessen at the Bessborough Hotel where they both worked. They were married and moved to Prince George, BC where dad worked in the forest industry. Then another move to Cloverdale where they farmed, then to Agassiz where they owned the Chuckwagon Café, then to Kamloops, Chase, Blind Bay, Keremeos and Langley.

The family would like to thank the caregivers and staff at Kamloops Seniors Village and the nursing staff at Hillside Centre, especially Deb, Kelly and Patty who cared for Mom with extraordinary compassion, dignity and respect. We will never forget your kind hearts.

She is survived by daughter Lorrell (Nick) Batistic and family, son Burns Thiessen and family and her deceased daughter Bonnie’s children Bradley and Lee Hunter.”

In keeping with Mom’s wishes, her ashes will be spread at Adams and Little Shuswap Lakes later in the summer of 2019 with a gathering for friends and family to be announced at a later date.

She had long life, and was loved and respected.

In lieu of flowers, please give generously to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC to help find a cure for this cruel and unrelenting disease.

A Graveside Service will be held on Monday, June 3, 2019 at 12:00 (noon) in the family plot at Hillside Cemetery, Kamloops, BC.

Condolences may be sent to the family at Schoening Funeral Service at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Upon leaving high school, Diane was employed by the Royal Bank for 20 years and her cherished friendships developed there remained with her throughout her life. In 1982, Diane announced to her family that she would be returning to school to pursue her life-long dream of becoming a registered nurse. After graduating from Cariboo College, Diane nursed at Royal Inland Hospital, Overlander Extended Care Hospital and also as a Community Nurse for Interior Health. By all accounts, Diane was a compassionate and caring person and she made many friends while thoroughly enjoying her nursing career. Diane was very close to her school friends known as the 12th Street Tarantulas. We will forever cherish the close bond and the gatherings she

Many thanks to all who visited mom and family during her days in hospital and hospice. Your love and support was overwhelming. Not enough can be said to thank the staff and doctors at Royal Inland Hospital 7-North and Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home. Mom was cared for with much love and respect. Diane’s family will always be grateful for your compassion and excellent care. As caregivers you made a deep impact on our lives.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Philip Henry Moyer Philip Henry Moyer, 79, passed away peacefully in the early morning of May 25, 2019 with his wife by his side. Philip was born on April 19, 1940 in Strathclair, Manitoba to parents August and Christine Moyer. He was the seventh of fifteen children. He spent many years on the farm in Manitoba before training to become an HVAC Journeyman. His HVAC career began at the Misericordia Health Center in Winnipeg where he worked for 20 years before moving to BC. In 1981 Philip moved his family to Kamloops. He kept the heating and ventilation and A/C at R.I.H. running smoothly for 20 years until his retirement in 2001. After retirement, Phil kept busy with self made businesses and travelling. Philip and Faith travelled extensively, visiting many countries and standing on almost every continent! Philip enjoyed meeting people and learning new things. He made new friends everywhere he went. Philip loved fishing, camping and anything in the outdoors. He could be found tinkering in the garage with the door wide open so people could stop in and chat. He was known by all as a hard worker and extremely generous man, helping family, friends, or anyone who needed. He was well known as, “Mr. Fix It” - there was no job that he couldn’t handle.

Norma was born in Frankton, New Zealand and enjoyed being a happy and healthy fourth child of the Moltzen family. She remained proud to be a Kiwi. Her New Zealand roots fostered her love of the outdoors in Canada and she always looked forward to the annual camping vacations with her family in many parts of British Columbia. She and George made several trips back to New Zealand over the years. Norma met George in New Zealand shortly before he left on a trip to the United States. They corresponded for two years and George made a proposal of marriage via the mail service. At 23 years of age, Norma left New Zealand on a six week voyage on a P + O shipping liner bound for Vancouver, British Columbia where they were married five days later on December 5, 1951. They left a short time later to reside in Long Island, New York while they waited for their paperwork to immigrate to Brazil. Due to complications, they were not granted visas for Brazil and returned to Vancouver where they lived until 1964.

A. Cremation is generally less expensive, mostly because cemeteries charge more for body burial than for urn burial. The price at our funeral home is about the same for a graveside service as for a celebration of life. We’ll be glad to give details without pressure or obligation. Call us or drop by.

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

They moved to Victoria and Westbank and settled in Kamloops in 1983. Norma had a large family but extended hospitality to many over the years. She took in two foster children and had a wide array of boarders in their home in Victoria. She loved to teach Sunday school and enjoyed several years of speaking for the Christian Women’s luncheons in the Kamloops area. Norma will be missed dearly by her family for her great sense of humour, warmth of soul and unconditional love and support for each one. She enjoyed a good laugh even at her own expense. She was always friendly and cheerful to all she met. She learned to email at 80 years of age and maintained a long list of family and friends to correspond with. Her faith was the foundation of her life which expressed itself in service to others. The family extends their appreciation to the staff at Ridgeview Lodge, Kamloops, where Norma resided for the past seven years. Their compassionate care for those residents with dementia was a great comfort. Thanks also to Dr. Tracey Smillie for her thoughtfulness and concern for Norma and her gracious visit with the family in Norma’s last days. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Friday, June 7, 2019 at 2:00 pm at Kamloops Gospel Chapel, 1365 Tranquille Road, Kamloops, BC. Memorial donations may be made to Kamloops Hospice Association, 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, BC V2E 2S9. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

In Loving Memory Of

Irene M. Patton May 30, 1923 – June 2, 2018

A million times we’ve needed you, A million times we’ve cried. If love alone could’ve saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, No one else will ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone. Part of us went with you, The day God took you home. Love You Always, Diane, Vicki, Reid, Randy, Lorne, Loni, Calvin and families.

Love your family.

THE LITTLE UNICORN by Peggy Kociscin, Albuquerque, New Mexico

There lived a little unicorn (From when the earth was new), His coat so white it glistened, His eyes a sparkling blue.

He learned that there are shadows In spite of shining sun. The more he grew, he found that life Was never always fun.

The unicorn tried tirelessly, And gave the climb his best; But he felt it was not good enough, He felt he’d failed the test.

In innocence and beauty, He danced through woods and streams. The animals danced with him, His heart aglow with dreams.

For now he’d learn of feelings That come from deep within; No longer in the “dream world” Where (for so long) he’d been.

He could not understand it When he felt himself rejected – When all his gentle being asked Was but to be accepted.

He laughed and played with rainbows, So happy all day through, He loved to kiss the flowers As their petals shone with dew.

His gentle heart desired But to know the pleasure of To give and to receive The very precious gift of love.

All this was just too much for him, He knew not what to do. That he was special as himself, Somehow, he never knew.

He wandered through the meadows In the moon’s soft, silver light. He loved to gaze at all the stars That lightened up the night.

To love meant to be happy, And yet it also brought him pain; For those he loved could hurt him Again.. and yet again.

His spirit crushed, he felt defeated, And lonely tears would start. Not understanding how to love, It simply broke his heart.

He listened to the music Of the birds that graced the trees. He frolicked with the butterflies And raced the gentle breeze.

His mother held him lovingly And tried to ease his fears About the sadness life could bring... The lonely, bitter tears.

But now he’s in a loving place Where all his pain has ceased, Where all accepted him and his love, Where all he knows is peace.

But, as he grew and learned of life, The sparkle in his eye Grew misty as he realized Just what it means to cry.

She said, “Life is like a mountain, (And surely this is true) That we must climb as best we can. There’s no ‘around or ‘through.’”

A loving Being tells him, “You’re delightful as you are.” His spirit free, his brilliance now Outshines the brightest star!

Bereavement Publishing Inc. 5125 N. Union Blvd., Suite 4, Colorado Springs, CO 80918

Her Journey’s Just Begun by E. Brenneman

Don’t think of her as gone away, Her journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets, This earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, From the sorrows and the tears, In a place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing, That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness, Can really pass away. And think of her as living, In the hearts of those she touched, For nothing loved is ever lost; And she was loved so much.
