WHY ARE THOSE RAINBOW CROSSWALKS SO EXPENSIVE? JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

here have been letters to the editor, calls to the KTW newsroom and plenty of posts online with respect to the proposed rainbow crosswalk downtown. Virtually all of the above focus on the city’s estimated cost to apply the multicoloured crosswalk — $10,000. The city is considering the

installation at the request of Kamloops Pride. A rainbow crosswalk is intended to demonstrate the city’s commitment to inclusivity for all its residents. Kamloops Pride had hoped to have the crosswalk installed in time for its downtown parade in late August. The city is working with the group on a possible temporary rainbow crossing that could be ready in time for the Aug. 25 event. The city’s preliminary $10,000 cost estimate includes highly durable material known

as methyl methcrylate (MMA) road-marking paint. According to the province’s Ministry of Transportation, MMA road-marking paint is typically 10 to 15 times the cost of standard paint per metre to apply. A report with a more specific cost breakdown will go to council later, but city CAO David Trawin explained the majority of the cost is due to the material. See SPECIALIZED, A5 D#30150

A ceremony was held on Tuesday to honour the dead at the West Victoria Street site where ancestral human remains were discovered last week. About a dozen people from the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc First Nation, four people from the City of Kamloops and contractors were on hand for the private gathering. “I really appreciated being a part of it and having that offer extended to us,” city capital projects manager Darren Crundwell said. The remains were discovered on June 26 by construction crews working in the area. Work immediately stopped and RCMP officers, Tk’emlups representatives and Golder Associates employees attended the scene as part of archeological protocol for the project. A coroner and archeologist determined the remains to be “non-modern,” predating European settlement in the area. West Victoria Street is among the oldest areas in the city. The remains are still on site and Crundwell said an anthropologist was coming from Vancouver to work with archeologists to exhume the remains on Thursday and Friday. Anthropologists study humans with past and present societies.

It is not known if additional remains could be in the area of the $13-million West Victoria Street reconstruction project, which involves digging down and replacing subterranean infrastructure. Professionals will sift through the soils. Since the project began in April, glass bottles and a portion of a tool have been discovered, but June 26 was the first time human remains were found. “If there is more, we’ll just keep working with Golder and Tk’emlups to make sure we’re doing the right thing on site,” Crundwell said. Once exhumed, the remains will be given to Tk’emlups te Secwepemc, which will eventually decide their final resting place. In the past, remains given to Tk’emlups have been repatriated and buried on the reserve. Meanwhile, crews are back at work this week after taking the Canada Day long weekend off. “We just skipped ahead right now,” Crundwell said. “We’re working in front and behind. If we couldn’t deal with that area for weeks and months, yeah, it would eventually impact things. “Thankfully, it was in an area where we just skipped over that. “Then, once that site is cleared by Tk’emlups and the archeologist, we’ll go back and finish what we need to do in that area.”

DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE Manmeet Sra and Simranjot Kaur are the owners of the 2019 Y Dream Home in Tobiano. They have not yet decided what to do with their new abode.

Good things happen with great love TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

Manmeet Sra credits his wife, Simranjot Kaur, for winning the 2019 Y Dream Home this week. “It was her luck,” he told KTW. The couple was heading to a local gym when they came across a display table where Y Dream Home lottery tickets were being sold. Sra turned to his wife and asked her if she wanted to try her luck. Sra said his wife has better luck, so they bought the ticket in her name. It was a decision that clearly paid off, as her ticket was the last of 638 drawn on Wednesday afternoon in the Y Dream Home in Tobiano. The final ticket drawn gets the $842,000 home at 110 Cavesson Way. The remaining 637 tickets drawn are assigned subsidiary prizes. A total of 15,000 tickets were sold. “It was a big return for $100,” Sra said of the price of the ticket. The couple are recent arrivals in Kamloops, having moved from Calgary last year when Sra was promoted and transferred to the city’s Enterprise Rent-A-Car outlet, where he is a branch manager. His wife was a pharmacist in India and a pharmacy assistant in Calgary. She is hoping to get back to work at a pharmacy in Kamloops, but is still looking for a position. The couple had been in Calgary for about

MANMEET SRA AND SIMRANJOT KAUR

seven years before coming to Kamloops. Sra said they have enjoyed the Tournament Capital since their arrival, calling the city “beautiful.” They do not have children and Sra conceded their new 3,300-square-foot home might be a bit large for the two of them. At the moment, Sra said he is not sure what their plans are for the new property in Tobiano — whether they will keep it or pur-

sue an alternative. “We haven’t come up with a decision yet,” he said. “It could be any possibility.” The two visited the home on Wednesday evening, just after learning they had won. They hadn’t seen the house prior to that day — Sra said that they didn’t want to build up their expectations — and didn’t get an official tour until Thursday. “We’re still feeling like it’s a dream,” he said. “It’s hard to believe we are the winner of that jackpot.” Sra said winning the home is an example of how good things can happen when there is great love in the family and trust one another. He also thanks God’s grace. “He blessed with such a great gift, and we should be really thankful to God,” Sra said. This year’s Y Dream Home lottery sold out after just 10 days in April, which set a new record. In 2017, Y Dream Home lottery tickets sold out in 23 days. In 2018, they sold out in 13 days. The house was built through a partnership between the Canadian Home Builders’ Association-Central Interior, Thompson Rivers University’s School of Trades and Technology and the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA. This is the first year a Y Dream Home has been located outside city limits. This year’s 50/50 draw winner was Tammy Kawa, who took home $97,000. The complete list of winners is online at ydreamhome.ca.

BEARS AND GARBAGE The City's “Bear Smart” Bylaw is in effect until November 30, 2019. This means that garbage should be securely stored until it can be placed at the curb—no earlier than 4:00 am on collection day. Mismanaged garbage is one of the main reasons bears will enter neighbourhoods. When bears learn that garbage means food, they come back again and again. Help keep garbage out of reach of bears and remove the temptation by doing the following: • • • • • •

store garbage and recycling in a garage or sturdy enclosure keep pet food containers indoors keep barbecues clean remove bird feeders between May and November pick ripe fruit quickly remove unwanted fruit trees

KEEP YOUR BUTTS WHERE THEY BELONG Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) has attended 27 fires caused by improperly discarded smoking materials since 2017. Many of these fires were caused by cigarette butts discarded into garden planters, some of which were located on apartment balconies and could have resulted in major loss of life. Soil in planters often contains organic materials that can result in the smoking material smouldering for days before igniting and spreading to the planter and the surrounding structure. Another avoidable cause of fires is discarding cigarette butts out the window of a vehicle. If your car does not have an ashtray, you are urged to purchase one or use a non-combustible container to dispose of smoking materials. Everyone that smokes has a responsibility to properly discard their smoking materials. KFR reminds Kamloops residents and visitors to be FireSmart and keep your butts where they belong!

Outside of the office, Shaun will likely be found playing and watching basketball, or cheering on the Raptors.

Specialized material pricey From A1

“It’s a specialized material and the difference is it’s going to last four or five years, versus a paint that’s going to have to be put on, depending which intersection it is, two, three times a year,” he said. The city paints standard crosswalks at least once per year with water-based paint, at a cost of $420 each time, including staff labour. Crews paint some intersections up to three times per year. Trawin explained that environmental regulations prevent the city from using oil-based paints.

In higher traffic areas, the city uses thermoplastic paint, which is more durable, but comes at a higher cost. MMA is even more durable. Trawin said a higher durability paint would be preferable given the city’s experience with other coloured crosswalks. Red crosswalks were previously painted on Tranquille Road, but without constant maintenance, the North Shore Business Improvement Association apparently indicated to the city it no longer wanted them painted red. The red crosswalks on Tranquille have since been covered with white paint.

Trawin said paying more up front will result in better quality and less maintenance later. Ongoing maintenance costs of a rainbow crosswalk are expected to be between $5,000 to $10,000 every four or five years, depending on the location’s traffic levels. Council has directed staff to return with a report detailing cost and location for a rainbow crosswalk downtown. Four rainbow crosswalks are located on private property throughout the city — two at Kamloops Airport, one at Thompson Rivers University and one at Lansdowne Village downtown.

PHOTO CONTEST

JUNE WINNER

Higher costs not unusual From the B.C. Ministry of Transportation: “Changes in environmental regulations have meant a move away from more resilient acrylic paints we used in the past, to waterborne latex paints that are less harmful to the environment. These paints are less durable than previous paints and we are working with paint manufacturers on solutions to the issue. Different sections of the province have different issues to deal with in regards to line marking visibility and durability. Therefore, no single paint or application will work for everything and the cost per kilometre is difficult to determine as this cost can vary greatly depending on where the paint is being applied. Durable markings are typically 10 to 15 times the cost of standard paint per metre to install, include MMA (Methyl Methacrylate).” From the Langley Times, Sept. 14, 2016: “Staff recommends that all four pedestrian crossings at this intersection are marked in a similar manner to ‘minimize confusion for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists,’ and there would be ongo-

ing maintenance costs of around $50,000 every three to five years to maintain the rainbow feature. “Should they chose to install the crosswalk at a different intersection, such as Glover Road near Mary Avenue, the cost would be $12,000. A regular crosswalk, by contrast, typically costs $5,000.” From the Surrey Now-Leader, March 11, 2019: City staff estimates that painting a rainbow in a Delta crosswalk to ‘“proactively support diversity and inclusion” of the LGBTQ community would cost $6,500. From the Tri-City News, Nov. 30, 2017: “A staff report presented to Port Moody council recommended the Murray Street location as the most suitable for the crosswalk, based on factors like its visibility, traffic volume to reduce wear and tear, and the possibility of co-ordinating its installation with other planned work to help minimize costs. “The report said it would cost about $11,000 to prepare the roadway there and paint the crosswalk.”

A bee smoker is likely to blame for a grassfire at the Eaglepoint Golf Course on Tuesday afternoon, leading to an evacuation of golfers on the links in Barnhartvale. Kamloops Fire Rescue responded to the fire at about 4 p.m. The blaze was burning in sagebrush and grass off the ninth hole fairway. The contents from a bee smoker — a device that generates smoke from smouldering fuels to calm bees while their honey is harvested — was

determined by firefighters as the likely cause of the fire. A beekeeper operates on the Eaglepoint property. According to KFR acting platoon Capt. Jim Gorman, the fire may have started when the contents of the smoker were emptied. No other ignition sources were found. Ronald Neto, who works in the Eaglepoint pro shop, told KTW about 40 people had to be evacuated from the course. Gorman said no one was injured and no property was damaged by the fire. The fire grew to about 200 square metres before being extinguished.

Eaglepoint pro shop manager Erin Jensen said had it not been for the quick response from a neighbour, who was first on scene with a hose, employees and members from the city’s Valleyview fire station, the outcome could have been much worse. “I’d just love to give a shout out to them,” she said. Firefighters attended with an engine, bush truck and water tender truck. Firefighters were on scene for about two hours and an irrigation sprinkler was left running in the area. The golf course was re-opened on Wednesday morning.

A 34-year-old man died following a motorcycle accident last Friday night on Schubert Drive. Kamloops RCMP said the man, who is believed to be from Kamloops, struck a parked vehicle near the intersection of Richmond Avenue and Schubert Drive just before 11:20 p.m. on June 28. Stephanie Moniuk and her friend were driving nearby and were among the first to come upon the accident. She told KTW she saw one man performing CPR and another, badly

injured, prone on the pavement. She believes the two were riding together. Moniuk said she called emergency services to ensure they were coming and heard sirens shortly after, while her friend rushed to aid in resuscitating the man. Nearby, she said she saw a van, parked on Schubert Drive, with its front-end smashed in. Police say evidence indicates speed was a factor in the collision. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Mathias Van Laer

Thompson Rivers

said the incident was captured on surveillance footage and police used that material to determine the cause of the accident. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The area was closed to traffic until 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning while RCMP and the BC Coroners Service completed their investigation. KAMLOOPS TEENS KILLED IN COLLISION The BC Coroners Service said two teenagers from Kamloops were

killed in a crash north of Prince George on the weekend. The teens — a boy and girl — were in a vehicle that collided head-on with an oncoming transport truck near McLeod Lake on the afternoon of Sunday, June 30. A third person in the vehicle was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the truck was not injured and the cause of the crash is under investigation. McLeod Lake is about 90 minutes north of Prince George.

Early July rain welcome after parched spring The dearth of rain is great for outdoor activities, as Canada Day celebrants experienced this week in Riverside Park, but it does not bode well for wildfire season. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A drier than normal June followed an unseasonably dry spring in the Kamloops region, which doesn’t bode well for the wildfire risk over the summer. June, on average, is the wettest month of the year in Kamloops. This year, however, only about half the average amount of rain fell on the River City during the sixth month. Kamloops received about 16 millimetres of rain in June, compared to 36.8 millimetres last year — which was in line with the monthly average of 37.4 millimetres, according to Environment Canada. This year’s June precipitation amount is more than 2017’s 3.4 millimetres of rain, but close to the 15 millimetres that fell in 2016. The average temperature for June is 18.4

C, which was approximately where the mercury landed this year. The lack of rain has been a common trend so far in 2019. “It’s been a fairly dry spring for Kamloops,” Environment Canada meteorologist Bobby Sekhon said.

March, April and May produced about half as much rain as last year, with just 37.3 millimetres compared to the 64.8 millimetres of precipitation that fell in Kamloops over those three months in 2018. Usually, 54.2 millimetres of rain falls

over that time, meaning spring 2019 yielded just 69 per cent of normal precipitation in Kamloops, Sekhon told KTW. “It wasn’t top 10 driest, but it’s fairly dry,” he said. “We want to get as much precipitation as possible to eliminate

or at least mitigate some of the wildfire threats.” The BC Wildfire Service lists the wildfire danger rating in the Kamloops Fire Centre as low, with pockets of very low and moderate danger ratings, which are known to increase

quickly with a stretch of hot weather. Environment Canada’s forecast for the 2019 summer months is above normal temperatures in Kamloops, which are in the low 20s for July and August. July is starting out

wet in Kamloops, with rain expected to fall from Thursday, July 4, through Sunday, July 7, but Sekhon said hot and dry conditions will follow. While June is, historically, the wettest month for Kamloops, July is the second-wettest, Sekhon said. The average rainfalls for July and August are 31.4 millimetres and 23.7 millimetres, respectively. Last year, Kamloops had above-average precipitation in July of 39.9 millimetres (compared to the monthly average of 31.4 millimetres), but just 15.7 millimetres of rain in August, which was under the monthly average of 23.7 millimetres.

FLY FRIENDLY SKIES OUT OF FULTON FIELD

I

f you board it, they will fly. If you don’t, wave bye-bye. This week marked the return of non-stop flights between Kamloops and Toronto, but the frequency and duration of the service has been reduced considerably from last year’s introduction of the route. Last year, passengers could choose from three flights per week, from late June to early September. This year, there is one flight per week — Thursdays just after noon — with service running from July 4 to the end of August. The reasons given for the reduced service are connected to the federal government’s grounding of Boeing Max 8 planes following two deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. The grounding of the Max 8 aircraft means Air Canada had to pull some Airbus A319s from the Rouge fleet — planes used in the Kamloops-Toronto run — to fill in for the non-flying Max 8s. But ticket sales also factor into the fate of flights at Fulton Field, as passengers in Kamloops know well. Flights to Edmonton and Victoria have come and gone, while service to Calgary and Vancouver is often tweaked based on numbers. As Kamloops Airport managing director Ed Ratuski noted, if area residents desire a service, such as the Kamloops to Toronto run, seats need to be booked. And, based on a survey of fares, flying out of Kamloops, as opposed to Kelowna and Vancouver, makes sense. For example, a return flight to Toronto from Kamloops, leaving Aug. 22 and returning Aug. 29, is $627 (not including seat selection, checked baggage or travel insurance). That same flight (not including seat selection, checked baggage or travel insurance), from Vancouver is $660. That same flight (not including seat selection, checked baggage or travel insurance), from Kelowna is $637 and includes a one-hour layover in Edmonton. If you have any reason to travel east this summer, either to Toronto or points beyond, fly out of Kamloops. You will save time and money and, possibly, help save the service from going the way of the dodo bird.

Drawing on the truth

T

he editorial cartoon above was created by Ingrid Rice, a supremely talented artist who lives in North Vancouver. Rice’s editorial cartoons are syndicated to various newspapers, KTW being one of them. Rice is fortunate she is her own boss because daring to draw cartoons that criticize U.S. President Donald Trump has led to firings in locales such as New Brunswick or Pittsburgh. It’s bad enough that the role of editorial cartoonist — an important part of any newspaper’s Op/Ed pages — is disappearing across North America. But to create amid fear is another stressor altogether. This week, Michael de Adder, an editorial cartoonist who worked for Brunswick News for 17 years, was let go — two days after a controversial Trump cartoon he created began circulating online. The editorial cartoon is shocking and political and difficult to view — which is what defines the very best of editorial cartoons. It shows Trump playing golf around the bodies of migrants Oscar Alberto Martínez and his 23-month-old daughter, Angie Valeria, who drowned while crossing the Rio Grande River in a bid to get to the U.S. De Adder said Brunswick News let him go because of the cartoon, which he posted online, but did not submit to his employer. De Adder’s employer denied

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS his narrative, claiming plans to replace him with another cartoonist were in the works weeks before the Trump cartoon became a worldwide viral sensation. (De Adder’s successor, Greg Perry, declined the offer after being attacked on social media.) Maybe the truth of de Adder’s dismissal lies somewhere between what he and Brunswick Media are saying. But losing one’s job over views of Trump is not an isolated incident. Consider Rob Rogers, 25-year editorial cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette who was fired in the spring of 2018 following creation and publication of a series of cartoons critical of Trump. Rogers’ firing prompted Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto to issue a statement of condemnation, saying the decision sent “the wrong message about press freedoms in a time when they are under siege.” In his statement, Peduto noted Rogers’ firing came one

day after Trump called the media “our country’s biggest enemy.” That Trump is polarizing is an understatement. That he is controversial is a given. He has made comments and decisions that deserve the harshest of criticism. How can even his most ardent supporters defend his admission of sexually assaulting women (captured on audio while he was appearing on Entertainment Tonight)? How can his biggest fans defend the tragic scenes we are now witnessing of migrants in detention camps? How can his MAGA backers explain Trump’s affinity for despotic leaders in North Korea and Russia? An editorial cartoonist’s job is to make us uncomfortable with all that is wrong in this world, to challenge our views and to poke fun at those in charge who perhaps take themselves a bit too seriously. The 45th president of the United States of America has unveiled a buffet of topics from which editorial cartoonists can dine. Many of them are hard to digest — and that is the point. If you saw de Adder’s shocking cartoon and were repulsed and offended, then he did his job well. As policy decisions in the U.S. and elsewhere result in more such carnage, we run the risk of becoming desensitized to the tragedy. The editorial cartoonist serves as a powerful reminder that we must look hard at that which we prefer not to see. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

DOG DAYS CAN BE DANGEROUS Editor: Of late, I have read a few letters to the editor in KTW from motorists and cyclists, all expressing their points of view about sharing a roadway. Somewhat down the food chain would be pedestrians and pedestrians who have kids and/ or dogs out for a walk. Consider Rivers Trail, a public pathway shared by cyclists and pedestrians. We have had a few close calls with cyclists who have come from behind and go by us, sometimes at a relatively

high rate of speed, without announcing their presence. Unless a pedestrian does a shoulder check once every minute or so, there will be times when a cyclist approaching from behind will not be detected. On a recent night, our dog ended up having an encounter with a cyclist. The dog took the brunt of the impact. The cyclist did not fare well emotionally as she was extremely upset. We asked her how she was and she said she was OK, but

she repeated how sorry she was that our dog had been hit. We were angry, mainly because there had been some close calls before and now the very disturbing scenario of our pet being hit had come true. We took our dog home and I phoned the after-hour line at the vet clinic and the on-call vet gave me a call at home. Thankfully, the dog did not sustain any serious injuries. I want to let the girl know that and we hope she is also OK. John Noakes Kamloops

Editor: Re: Frank Lang’s letter of June 28 regarding the estimated $10,000 cost to install a rainbow-coloured crosswalk in downtown Kamloops (‘Taxpayers should not shoulder rainbow crosswalk costs’):

I agree with Lang. I fail to understand how such an expensive crosswalk, which would only be stomped upon by walkers and eventually dirtied (requiring more funding for maintenance) would advance

the cause of Pride. Surely there are other public-relations methods the Pride society can employ to generate publicity, other than holding taxpayers ransom. Narayan Mitra Kamloops

WHICH RELIGION WOULD FIND A RAINBOW OFFENSIVE? CROSS WITH FOOTING COLOURFUL BILL Editor: Re: Ingrid Rice’s editorial page cartoon of June 21, as seen above: The Pride flag has six colours. It is correctly depicted in Rice’s cartoon, missing indigo, but it would not be in the sky. An actual rainbow has seven colours (ROYGBIV, as every school child knows). Indigo, the missing colour, has great symbolism. It conveys justice, wisdom, integrity, devotion and impartiality.

The rainbow, with its seven colours, the number of completeness, was a gift of God. It was and remains a perpetual symbol of His promise to never again destroy the world with a flood. The seven-coloured rainbow is a Christian and Jewish symbol, so I’m unsure which religion would find an actual rainbow offensive. Perhaps Rice could clairfy this. Chris Kempling Kamloops

CRIMES OF THE WEEK SHOTS Did Tracey take the purse? Help Mounties solve the case

BC ARCHIVES PHOTO The old Pinantan schoolhouse, circa 1952.

History on the move MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Robbin’s Range schoolhouse in Sahali may have a new attraction imported from Pinantan next year. School District 73 is hoping to take advantage of a new provincial program in order to deconstruct the abandoned Pinantan elementary schoolhouse and move it to the educational heritage site on Springview Place. SD73 facilities director Art McDonald said the district has applied to the new Rural Districts Program for $140,000 to take apart the 900-square-foot, one-room schoolhouse about 40 minutes northeast of Kamloops. “I’d like to keep the

hand-hewn logs that are on the exterior and relocate them,” McDonald said. The school would be rebuilt next to the Robbins Range building — an old log schoolhouse that was dismantled and rebuilt at the former Pineridge elementary site in 1985 as a place where classes now take field trips to learn about what school was like decades ago. “We’d have to build a different structure and use the hand-hewn logs as cladding because you couldn’t build with those hand-hewn logs and have it pass a building inspection,” McDonald said. The rebuilt structure would then become another educational space and children could see the difference

in architecture between the old Pinantan school and the Robbins Range school, which was originally built in 1915. The school in Pinantan was built in the decades after Robbins Range opened. “The building at some point will be rotten, so we might as well try to save some heritage and have it live on so kids could see how things used to be,” McDonald said. “We’ve already got the log cabin there and this would be the next generation of school. The log cabin was kind of the old, old stuff. This one would be old.” Robbins Range Heritage School also served as a community centre and church in Barnhartvale before it closed in 1952.

Westsyde renos nearing end Renovations to Westsyde elementary are nearly complete. Work at the school, which is being re-opened this September to ease overcrowding at nearby David Thompson elementary, is about 90 per cent complete, according to School District 73 facilities director Art McDonald. “We’ve renovated, basically, the entire building on the inside,” he said. “It’s not too often we get an empty building.” Replacing flooring, installing new LED lighting and new ceiling tiles, adding plumbing fixtures, doors and cabinetry and slapping on fresh interior paint were among the renovations made to the building. McDonald said an exterior paint job still needs to be done on the school closed in 2006 and has since bene used by community groups. “There’s not a lot left after that — basically, get the furniture in and open the doors for

September,” he said. McDonald said furniture and other supplies from David Thompson elementary will be moved to Westsyde elementary, along with some new items. The district estimates Westsyde elementary housing about 175 students for 2019-2020. The renovation began in midMarch, with approximately 30 SD73 tradespeople on site. The building renovation required extra time to deal a few exterior walls with dry rot. In addition, several angled walls were built and a kitchen installed. Upon completion of the project at Westsyde elementary, school district maintenance crews will be working on installing portables — two at Brocklehurst middle, one at Valleyview secondary and one at McGowan Park elementary. Crews will also be moving two from David Thompson to South Sa-Hali elementary.

On May 18, a female lost her purse in a downtown Kamloops restaurant. Just before her purse went missing, the female was talking to a couple that she had just met. The woman was white and had short dark hair, an overbite and said her name was Tracey. The man was white and said his name was Mitch. It is possible the couple took the purse. Soon after the purse disappeared, credit cards from the purse were used at a convenience store. The woman using the card was wearing a red wig, had an overbite and said her name was Tracey.

Sales slowing in Kamloops real estate market in 2019 JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Home sales in Kamloops are down, underscored by limited inventory in the marketplace. “I think what we’re seeing is a bit of a cooling in the market,” Kamloops and District Real Estate Association president Wendy Runge said. “This June was one of the lower Junes on record, actually, in the last several years.” Activity has been down month over month. In June, 262 homes were sold locally, compared to 328 homes sold in June of last year, representing a 20 per cent decline. Runge pointed to year-todate numbers for a more accurate depiction. This year, 1,411 homes have been sold, compared to 1,540 sales last year — a nine per cent decline. Brocklehurst saw the most action last month, with 26 sales, followed by homes selling in Aberdeen (22), South Kamloops (22) and Sahali (20). While activity is down, home prices have not yet been affected. The average sale price across

JUNE 2019: 262 sales JUNE 2018: 328 sales 2019: 1,411 sales through June 30 2018: 1,540 sales through June 30 the market (single-family, townhouses and apartments) in June was $425,000, up by nearly nine per cent from last June, when the average sale price was $391,000. Seventy-three sales in June were for between $400,000 to $500,000. The average single-family home price is sitting at $495,000, compared to $492,000 in May. Three homes sold for more than $1 million in June. Runge said home prices are still high because listings remain low, despite a slight increase in new listings in June.

At the end of June, 1,269 new listings were posted, compared to 1,198 new listings at the end of June 2018. Runge said the market has seen a sharp decline in the number of properties for sale, resulting in a supply issue, rather than a demand issue. Asked for reasons the market is cooling, Runge said trends in the Lower Mainland trickle to the River City. The market change in Vancouver has slowed migration to Kamloops. Additionally, Runge pointed to new mortgage rules, the socalled stress test in which buyers need to have an income that can withstand rate increases. “It’s really changed what people could afford. I think it’s affected buyers more than we even realized,” she said. “That’s why you see that $400,000 to $500,000. I think people who could have afforded something in the higher price range before the new rules are now having to readjust what they’re looking for. “We’re still seeing a lot of sales in that $400,000 to $500,000 and the townhouse market — very strong.”

Foul play not involved in sudden death in Westsyde Kamloops Mounties were called on Wednesday morning after a body was found in a walkway in the Oak Hills area of Westyde. RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said police were called to investigate a report of a sudden death and confirmed no foul play is involved. Shelkie said police are releasing no further information. ARREST FOLLOWS STABBING A 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the Canada Day stabbing of another man in downtown Kamloops. A 54-year-old man was stabbed this past Monday at 10 p.m. while at the corner of Victoria Street and Fifth Avenue, just before the Canada Day fireworks display began. He was taken to Royal Inland Hospital with serious, but nonlife-threatening, injuries. On Tuesday, at 2:50 p.m., Mounties arrested the suspect in the stabbing. Police say it appears the two men know each other.

BRIEFS Crown counsel will determine charges. SAFETY FIRST ON WATER Kamloops RCMP is reminding boaters to stay safe on rivers and lakes this summer. In British Columbia, one needs to carry a valid pleasure craft operator card (a boating licence) to operate a powered watercraft. The boating licence exam can be taken online at boatinglicense.ca. Saftey tips include: wear your lifejacket, take a boating course, be prepared with safety gear and sufficient fuel, pay attention to the weather and use common sense. Police are also reminding boat operators to not drink or use cannabis as drivers on the water face the same consequences as those when found to be impaired. More on the water tips include:

• When meeting a boat, slow down to reduce the bow wave and pass on the right; • If you are about to cross paths with another boat, the craft on the right side has the right of way; • Be a considerate boater and be the first to give way; • Operate your craft at a safe speed. Take into account having to stop abruptly or having to suddenly turn to avoid a collision • You should always be on the lookout for traffic on the water. It’s best to know where other boats are and where they’re heading before you make a turn or cross a wake; • In congested areas, lower your speed, just as you would if you were driving a car; • Don’t spill fuel, oil or leave litter or other pollutants where they don’t belong. Also, don’t operate your watercraft close to wildlife or aquatic vegetation. • Boats, jet skiers and swimmers share the water. Keep your distance and respect other’s rights to safety, access and use of the water.

Airport to get million-dollar firefighting vehicle Federal Minister of Rural Economic Development Bernadette Jordan announces funding of $960,000, which will allow the Kamloops Airport to add a firefighting vehicle to its fleet. MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Federal funds are helping the Kamloops Airport enhance its emergency response capabilities with the addition of a second aircraft rescue firefighting vehicle. A successful application to the Airport Capital Assistance Program (ACAP) means the airport will receive $960,000 to purchase the truck, Minister of Rural Economic Development Bernadette Jordan announced on the airport tarmac on Wednesday morning. The vehicle can carry more than 6,000 litres of water and also use foam concentrate and dry chemical fire retardants. Though funding is approved, the vehicle won’t arrive until January of 2020, airport supervisor of safety and facilities, Tracy Brown told KTW. The vehicle is brand new and will be coming right off the manufacturing line, she said, adding a rental vehicle will be used in the interim if it doesn’t arrive on schedule. The second truck will increase the airport from a category 5 aircraft rescue firefighting response classification with Transport Canada to a

category 6, she said. Kamloops Airport was required to add the truck to increase its classification due to the Q-400 airplanes that land at the airport, Brown said. West Jet operates Q-400 aircraft out of Kamloops and Air Canada recently announced it was upgrading its fleet from Dash 8-300 to the larger Q-400. For the second consecutive sunmer, Air Canada will be flying Airbus A319s between Kamloops and Toronto. “It’s the size of the aircraft that are coming in to the airport that

drives that change,” Brown said. The upgrade also means more firefighter maintenance technicians working at one time. “We’ll go from a minimum of one firefighter on shift to two firefighters on shift,” Brown said. “We’re firefighter maintenance technicians. We do everything out here. It’s kind of an all-encompassing role.” The second fire truck will enable personnel to attack an aircraft with double the water flow from multiple angles and makes the airport a more attractive location for other

service providers, Brown said. Between 2016 and 2018, the airport received a snowplow and sweeper through ACAP, which were on display Wednesday with the airport’s current aircraft rescue firefighting vehicle, acquired in 2013. Kamloops Airport manager Ed Ratuski told KTW the firefighting equipment is 100 per cent funded by ACAP, but contributions for items like the snow removal equipment depend on the number of passengers — the more the airport receives, the less the government contributes. “We really want to take advantage of what’s available to us during this growth period to ensure we’re fiscally responsible to the Kamloops Airport Authority Society,” Ratuski said. The government covered 65 per cent of the $130,000 snowplow cost and 65 per cent of the $120,000 needed for the sweeper. The airport will be eligible for just 35 per cent of cost recovery when it is serving approximately 400,000 passengers

annually. The airport has been experiencing growth by about 10 per cent month over month for the past 14 months, Ratuski said, noting 2018 was a record year, with 350,000 passengers using Fulton Field. “Coming with that are safety enhancements that need to be kept up with and we’re very thankful the federal government, through the Airport Capital Assistance Program, assists us with meeting those regulatory requirements,” he said. Passenger numbers for the second quarter of 2019 are expected to be about nine to 10 per cent higher than second quarter of 2018 and the airport is on track to set another yearly high, Ratuski said. Those statistics will be released next week. The Airport Capital Assistance Program helps smaller regional airports make infrastructure improvements and meet safety standards with the equipment they need. Since the program began in 1995, Kamloops Airport has received more than $9.1 million in funding for 15 safety projects, including the rehabilitation of its runway, the apron and taxiways, snow-clearing equipment and the firefighting vehicle announced on Wednesday.

A Kamloops student is a big winner in a nationwide RCMP contest to name puppy police dogs. Caleb Kilba, a student at Rayleigh elementary, was one of 13 kids from across Canada to have his puppy name — Marlow — chosen. Each year, the RCMP Police Dog Services Training Centre in Innisfail, Alta., stages a Name the Puppy contest, which is open to all children in Canada under the age of 14. This year, the centre solicited names for 13 German Shepherd puppies training to become police dogs. The contest received a record-setting 34,714 entries from children in every province and territory. Members of the Kamloops RCMP Police Dog Services Unit went to Rayleigh elementary on June 25 to present Caleb with his prizes: an RCMP baseball cap, a plush dog named Justice and a photo of Marlow, the puppy he named. Contest rules stipulated that names must begin with the letter M, must have no more than nine letters and must consist of one or two syllables. The Police Dog Services Training Centre in Innisfail is home to the RCMP’s national police dog training program and is a part of RCMP Depot Division. RCMP police service dog teams search for missing or lost people, track and apprehend criminals, detect illegal drugs and explosives and search for evidence used in crimes.

Direct flights between Kamloops and Toronto resume AIR CANADA ROUGE SERVICE IS ONCE A WEEK, ON THURSDAYS; LAST YEAR, THERE WERE THRICE-WEEKLY FLIGHTS Passengers arrive in Kamloops on June 21, 2018, when the first non-stop Air Canada Rouge flight arrived from Toronto. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Direct flights between Toronto and Canada’s Tournament Capital have returned for a second summer as Air Canada Rouge resumed non-stop flights between the two cities on Thursday. This year, however, passengers have fewer opportunities to take advantage of the flights as the airline has scaled back the seasonal service. Last year, the there were three flights per week between June and September. This year, there will be one flight per week until the end of August. This year, the weekly flight will depart for Toronto shortly after noon on Thursdays. Kamloops Airport managing director Ed Ratuski said he is hoping locals take advantage of the flight in order for it to be successful. “The loads are looking promising for that flight, but we continually want to encourage the local community to search out that flight for their travel plans out east this summer,” Ratuski said.

He said discussions with Air Canada to date indicate sales are up for the Kamloops to Toronto flight compared to last year at this time. In 2018, non-stop flights to Toronto took off on Tuesdays,

Thursdays and Saturdays. Ratuski said the Thursday flight returned because it was the bestperforming of the three. Flights must be booked at more than 80 per cent occupancy to be considered successful.

Ratuski said the other two flights saw a large portion of travellers passing through Kamloops, taking advantage of low-cost fares and continuing to Vancouver. “They’re operating Rouge services into Vancouver as well,

so when they’re justifying their route rationalizations, that’s what they’d look at — are we taking from one to feed another?” Ratuski explained. The start date for this year’s Toronto to Kamloops flight — July 4 —was delayed by two weeks as Air Canada re-arranged its fleet following the grounding of its Boeing Max 8 aircraft in March. The planes were grounded in Canada, the U.S. and other countries following two 737 Max 8 crashes — in Indonesia last October and in Ethiopia in March — that killed 346 people. Boeing, which makes the planes, agreed this week to create a $100-million fund for family members of those killed. Because the Max 8 planes remain out of service, Ratuski said, some of the Airbus A319s from the Rouge fleet were pulled to fill in for the grounded planes. Air Canada uses an A319 for its Kamloops to Toronto route.

Threats prompt cancellation of anti-abortion film in Salmon Arm The Salmar Grand’s sister theatre in Salmon Arm, the Classic, will not not be showing Unplanned. SALMON ARM OBSERVER PHOTO

LACHLAN LABERE

SALMON ARM OBSERVER

newsroom@saobserver.net

Threats made against Salmar Theatres staff in Salmon Arm have led to a decision not to screen the controversial anti-abortion film Unplanned. Salmar Community Association board member Chris Papworth confirmed on Thursday that the board has agreed to pull the movie’s five-day run, which was set to begin on July 12 at the Salmar Classic. He said the difficult decision to cancel the film was made out of concern for the personal safety for Salmar Theatres management, who had received personal threats via social media. “We have a track record of showing things from a variety of points of view… we try not to preclude things because of whatever personal opinions may exist on our board or something like that,” Papworth said, adding it is not unusual for people to complain about a film showing at the Salmar Classic or Salmar Grand theatres. “What’s different here… certainly in the past, there hasn’t been an effort to dox employees or, specifically, the general manager, by releasing their personal information on social media and then encouraging people to go after them as the one responsible for some heinous act. “We just aren’t prepared for those levels of hostility towards our general manager.” (To dox is to search for and

publish private or identifying information about someone on the Internet, with malicious intent.) The screening of Unplanned, a PG-rated movie from a Canadian distributor, had been organized with support from members of the Shuswap Pro-Life Society. Speaking for the society, Hildegard Krieg said members are disappointed by the cancellation, but respect the Salmar’s decision. “If they had just come out to picket while the movie is running, I could accept that,” Krieg said. “But I cannot accept that they should actually threaten somebody with violence personally and the family. That is absolutely uncalled for. A peaceful picket, OK, we walk through the picket line. But that is going too far.” Papworth is also uncomfortable with the precedent cancelling the film sets, but said the safety of Salmar is the priority. “Is it OK now on any given hotbutton issue to contact the manager on a personal level? Let’s just harass her until she capitulates to our demands?” Papworth asked.

“We don’t like the precedence, but at the same time, we’re not willing to put our manager, who we value greatly, at any kind of personal risk in our community.” Papworth said there remains the option for Unplanned to be shown privately at the Salmar Classic theatre. “They would then rent the Classic and bring it in as a private viewing,” Papworth said. “That would be up to them. And we wouldn’t discourage anybody from renting the Classic and showing a film, whatever they happen to choose to show.” Krieg said that option is something the Shuswap Pro-Life Society would likely do at a later date. Unplanned stars Ashley Bratcher as a Planned Parenthood clinic director who becomes an anti-abortion speaker after “the day she saw something that changed everything.” The film, based on a book of the same name by anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson, is set to play in more than 24 movie houses across Canada beginning on July 12.

illing journalists is no big deal. “Get rid of them. Fake news is a great term, isn’t it? You don’t have this problem in Russia, but we do,” said U.S. President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the one international leader he never criticizes or condemns. They were joking together at the G20 summit meeting in Japan and Putin replied: “We also have. It’s the same.” No, it isn’t. Twenty-six Russian journalists have been murdered since Putin became president and the Russian media have become very cautious about what they say. No journalists have been killed for political reasons in the United States on Trump’s watch and the American media can still do their jobs. Some of them do, and some don’t, but there’s nothing new about that. What is relatively new is that it’s getting seriously unhealthy for journalists in the Middle East to criticize the United States or its local allies. The highest-profile case was the slaughter of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul by an Saudi government death squad. Khashoggi wrote for the Washington Post, so his murder attracted a lot of attention, but those facing the biggest threat are the journalists who work for the Al Jazeera Media Network. It’s the best news network in the Arab world (with a full English-

GWYNNE DYER World

WATCH language service, as well) and it’s worried that Saudi Arabia is going to bomb its headquarters in Qatar. In fact, the Al Jazeera management have been taking out full-page paid ads in leading world newspapers, pointing out they now face a “credible death threat” from Saudi Arabia. They’re right. It began with a tweet in mid-June from highranking Saudi journalist Khaled al-Matrafi, claiming that Al Jazeera’s headquarters in Doha, Qatar, is “a legitimate and logical target” for the Saudi-led, U.S.-backed coalition that has been bombing the living daylights out of Yemen for the past four years. Al-Matrafi is the former director of the Al Arabiya news channel, originally founded by relatives of the Saudi royal family to counter criticism coming from Al Jazeera. He is also known to be close to the kingdom’s decision-makers (including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who probably gave the orders to murder and dismember Khashoggi). Twitter took down al-Matrafi’s tweet after

a day, but Al Arabiya is often used to convey official Saudi threats. When Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies imposed a blockade on the small Gulf sheikhdom of Qatar in 2017 (partly to force it to close down Al Jazeera), Al Arabiya’s general manager at the time, Abdulrahman alRashed, warned that if Qatar did not submit, Al Jazeera staff (94 nationalities) would be massacred when the invasion came. The invasion did not happen, probably due to American intervention, so Qatar is still independent and Al Jazeera is still in business. But Washington was trying to avoid embarrassment, not to save Al Jazeera. In fact, it generally sees the network as an enemy. Back in 2001, when George W. Bush was planning the invasion of Afghanistan, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia’s closest ally, urged him to bomb Al Jazeera’s office in Kabul and gave him its coordinates. By an amazing coincidence, the United States did bomb the Al Jazeera office in Kabul a couple of weeks later. By an even more amazing coincidence, exactly the same sequence of events led to the destruction of Al Jazeera’s Baghdad office during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. So it’s understandable that the network’s journalists take a Saudi threat to attack them seriously, especially when it looks like the United States and Saudi Arabia are both thinking about going to war with Iran.

Spotlight put on Kamloops in Amazing Race Canada debut KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A

jax mine was again in the spotlight this week — capturing the attention of about two-million Canadians from coast to coast to coast. This time, though, the dormant mine site was not the focus of an application or protesters; it was featured in the first episode of season seven of The Amazing Race Canada. The popular show pits 10 teams of two against each other in a race across Canada and beyond, with the team crossing the finish line after many weeks on the road winning $500,000 in cash and prizes. The race is divided into a series of legs and on each leg, teams compete to reach the pit stop, where they are greeted by host Jon Montgomery. In the first episode of the season, which aired Tuesday night on CTV, the 10 teams began the race in Toronto and flew to Kamloops, where they landed at Kamloops Airport, jumped into vehicles supplied by Smith Chevrolet Cadillac and tried to find three locations in Kamloops. First stop was the Ajax mine site south of Aberdeen — the former Afton mine pit — where contestants were attached to a zip line and had to fly over the water-filled pit and drop a ball into a square target. They all eventually succeeded, despite

encountering fierce winds for which Kamloops is known. The next stop was Circle Creek Ranch and Equestrian Centre off Highway 5A, just south of Upper Sahali. There, teams were taken to a pen and challenged with finding the name of the next stop by reading tags attached to the ears of skittish cattle. Once the location was discovered, teams were then off to find the Kamloops Bike Ranch in Juniper Ridge, which served as the first pit stop, with host Montgomery waiting. Dave and Irina, a married couple from Montreal, arrived first, winning a trip to South Africa and two in-game Express Passes (one to use, one to give away to another team). Jet and Dave — a popular duo from season 1 voted on to this season’s race by viewers — finished dead last and were eliminated. The importance of maps was highlighted in the first episode as Jet and Dave somehow ended up 80 kilometres from Kamloops while trying to navigate from the Ajax mine site to Circle Creek Ranch. Tourism Kamloops worked with producers of The Amazing Race Canada in setting up challenges in the Tournament Capital. “The opportunity to work with The Amazing Race Canada and their production crew to

showcase Kamloops in this year’s season premier is a big win for Kamloops,” said Monica Dickinson, Tourism Kamloops’ director of industry relations and communications. “It was fun pitching creative challenge ideas that would have contestants explore all corners of the city.” Dickinson said the production team spent a week in the city preparing for filming, hiring up to 60 residents in the process. She said the filming in April led to a direct economic impact of about $13 million, while noting earned media coverage for Kamloops is an important piece of Tourism Kamloops’ overall marketing strategy. “We invest approximately $50,000 annually to attract and host travel media from key markets and the return is significant,” Dickinson said. “In 2018, over $820,000 in earned media coverage was realized from our efforts — a great boost to our marketing outreach.” To celebrate the season premiere of The Amazing Race Canada, Tourism Kamloops, Destination British Columbia and Cascades Casino hosted a viewing party at Match Eatery + Public House with industry partners and production supporters. Episode 2 of show will feature teams racing through Revelstoke. The Amazing Race Canada airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CTV.

ore than 4,700 kilometres away, members of the Kamloops Rube Band were treated like rock stars. But unlike some of the overseas and international endeavours the band has undertaken throughout its 70-year history, this one remained on Canadian soil. Of the band’s 30- to 35-member roster of musicians, 21 made the trip to Newfoundland and Labrador to help celebrate the province’s 70th year since joining Canada. The main event of the shared birthday bash was to mark Family Fun Day in St. John’s, playing a show in Bannerman Park on June 22. The group also

played a show at City Hall, at St. John’s International Airport, at the city’s tourism office and at a brewery. Terry Phillips, the Rube Band’s personnel director, said the group also presented a letter from Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian to St. John’s Mayor Danny Breen and received a commemorative plaque from Breen. “Music is just amazing there and they just opened their arms and welcomed us,” Phillips said. “Any time a city truck passed us when we were playing, we’d get the honk-honk.” The group also visited Cape Spear, the easternmost point of North America, and marked the occasion by playing a mariachi tune. “I call it Cape Fear because

the wind was blowing, I swear, so strong,” Phillips said. “I will never complain about the wind in Kamloops again.

“I had to help the saxophone player up on that rock and hang on to him and try to play my clarinet so the wind didn’t blow

him off into the sea.” The Kamloops Rube Band will mark its 70th year with a Music in the Park performance on Aug. 18.

Living holographically I

n 1996, cyberpunk author William Gibson wrote Idoru, a novel that predicted holographic musicians would become popular and commonplace in the near future. Well, that future is here. In 2006, virtual band Gorillaz, who are real musicians but perform as cartoons, performed live at the Grammys as holograms and sang a duet with Madonna. Celine Dion performed a duet with a holographic Elvis Presley the next year. In 2012, dead rapper Tupac Shakur performed “live” at the Coachella Festival. Today, dead musicians can be seen as touring holograms, ranging from Elvis Presley and Roy Orbison, to Michael Jackson and opera singer Maria Callas, to heavy metal singer Ronny James Dio. In Japan, an anime holographic singer named Hatsune Miku is a huge star and even “toured” North America with a live band in 2016. We’ve also seen holographic technology used with real people. Canadian singer Feist used

it to appear to perform simultaneous concerts at multiple venues over the world. There’s something to be said about being able to see an artist perform that you’d never get a chance to see play live, mostly because they’ve passed away. What does this mean for an actual musician though? Will Elvis impersonators disappear if we can see Elvis play as a hologram? Do cover bands stop playing if the band lives on as a hologram? The technology is great if a musician wants to get some-

where they normally couldn’t, due to other commitments, or being stuck someplace else due to weather or distance. A German circus is using holograms to show animals like elephants and horses, to avoid actually bringing in animals to perform, to avoid animal cruelty and to drop costs involved with transporting huge animals. Seeing live musicians play live is an experience that can’t be replicated. Even when seeing a musician as a hologram, you’re still only seeing a recording of them. Is it any different than watching it on a TV? A hologram has no physical or emotional presence, so live musicians can’t interact with them in meaningful ways. Nothing will replace a live musician, though holograms could help get music out to more people in less expensive ways.

First meeting Controversial Anti-abortion film for new arts ‘Unplanned’ coming to Canada Film called ‘a dangerous piece of anti-abortion collective propaganda’ by Canadian abortion rights group SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

new arts collective in town has just held its inaugural meeting. The Kamloops Open Arts Society is the creation of two local artists looking to create an accessible space. “Since moving here, we’ve noticed the Kamloops arts scene is a little bit small and a little bit exclusive, in that people don’t really have a place to go on a daily basis to make and chat about art,” said Lindsey Tyne Johnson. Johnson, who works with film, printmaking, woodworking and other media, moved to Kamloops last fall and said the current spaces available in the city are niche uses only or have too much red tape. Johnson and her friend Phil Cody, who she knew from another collective the two were a part of in Prince George, decided to put this group together and put out the call for a first meeting, which was last Saturday. “It was a small group. We took that time to work on our art and talk about why we wanted to start the collective and potential things for the future,” she said. Although the collective is in its infancy, the

group’s next meeting will begin discussing potential spaces for the collective to rent out and provide space for other artists. Johnson said all artists are welcome, visual, performance or otherwise, and said current members are filmmakers, photographers and painters. “I think we’re probably going to meet again next month and discuss more ideas on how to get a space started and how to fundraise to market the idea a little bit,” she said. Johnson encouraged young artists looking to meet new people and established artists looking for space where critiques flow freely to consider being a part of the collective, also welcoming others to contribute to the formation of the collective. “It’s a collective, so I don’t feel like I’m the leader or anything. The more people who want to get on board with organizing things, the better,” she said. The group is currently organizing on Facebook on its page Kamloops Open Arts Society. A date for the next meeting has not been announced.

VICTORIA HEARN

CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — A controversial American anti-abortion film is set to hit Canadian theatres soon, with the distributor bracing for possible protests. More than 24 cinemas across the country are due to screen Unplanned for a week starting July 12, after stirring up intense debate during its U.S. release from Christian production studio Pure Flix. Ashley Bratcher stars as a Planned Parenthood clinic director in Texas who becomes an anti-abortion speaker after “the day she saw something that changed everything,” says a description on the film's website. Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman co-directed and co-wrote the drama, which is based on a memoir of the same name by anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson. “Some groups are saying that they'll protest, and there's a lot of people that will support,” said BJ McKelvie, a pastor and president of the film's Frederictonbased Canadian distributor, Cinedicom. “We have one company that's come under intense scrutiny, so he's going to have security there. It's The Movie Mill in Lethbridge, Alta. It's been unfortunate that he's had a lot of threats, a lot of emails.” The film has already drawn impassioned reactions from groups on both sides of the issue in the U.S., where it had an R-rating from the MPAA

due to some graphic scenes. Top film critics on movie review aggregation websites Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes have panned it, with many calling it propaganda. But audience scores are much higher and some theatres were packed as faith-based and anti-abortion groups in the U.S. held group screenings. In Canada, the rating varies from province to province. In Alberta, for instance, it's received a 14A classification with a “disturbing content” warning, according to the Cineplex website, while in B.C. the film has a PG rating with “sexual language, medical trauma” caution. “Everybody has their right to choose to go see the movie and they have a right to choose not to,” McKelvie said in a recent phone interview. But the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada calls it “a dangerous piece of anti-abortion propaganda” containing “vicious falsehoods.” “It preaches an absolutist and extreme case against abortion that has nothing to do with reality,” the ARCC said in a statement. “Because of the film's demonization of abortion providers, ARCC fears the movie could incite fanatics to commit acts of harassment or violence against clinics or doctors.” The ARCC added the film also depicts Planned Parenthood and its leaders as “demonic, cold-hearted monsters, their only goal to maximize profits by selling as

many abortions as possible.” “In reality, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America is non-profit and offers a wide range of basic and mostly free health care services for low-income people, with abortion making up just 3.4 per cent of its services,” said the statement. “Like other U.S. abortion providers, Planned Parenthood clinics have no choice but to charge for abortion care because anti-choice laws prohibit government funding for abortion.” ARCC executive director Joyce Arthur also noted the film's attempt to challenge abortion rights is “a non-starter in Canada, where women and transgender people have a Charter right to abortion based on their rights to bodily autonomy and equality.” McKelvie acknowledged he has a personal interest in seeing the film in theatres here. “It does certainly align with my values,” he said. He said he felt compelled to reach out to the Unplanned American producers to distribute the film in Canada after being “annoyed” by “misinformation” online that the drama had been banned here. “I was walking down the hall grumbling and I heard the Lord say to me, 'Well why don't you distribute it?' and that was rather different,” McKelvie recalled. The film will hit select Cineplex and Landmark Cinemas as well as some independent theatres in Canada. Landmark said it has not

heard of any planned protests at its theatres and it has not taken any steps to increase security. Cineplex said it is aware of concerns surrounding the film and is monitoring closely. “We have been showing movies for over 100 years and controversial films on the big screen are not new to us — that said, we of course understand and can appreciate the concerns some have expressed about this film,” Sarah Van Lange, executive director of communications for Cineplex Entertainment, said in a statement. “We have a long legacy of not censoring content and our role as a film exhibitor is to provide our guests with movie choices.” McKelvie's company, which was founded 61 years ago by his late father, is typically a film booker and broker. Unplanned marks its first time as a film distributor. Cinedicom and American production company Soli Deo Gloria Releasing are collaborating to front the money for distribution in Canada. McKelvie said a few theatres here have refused to screen it. “I think some in smaller towns are a little nervous about what the pushback would be,” McKelvie said. “This is a hot topic, it's a hot film, and I have received probably hundreds of letters of support. But I've also received letters of protest and phone calls. I've listened to both sides but I'm just a distributor.”

Arriving at Land’s End in magical India MARGARET DEEFHOLTS

SPECIAL TO KTW

t’s a strange, almost surreal moment. Standing on the rocky shore looking south across the Indian Ocean, it is difficult not to feel a sense of awe bordering on the mystical. Behind me, reaching across 1.7-million square kilometers, is the vast seething sub-continent of India in all its diversity of language, customs, religions and peoples. And this is where it ends — abruptly. Waves slap against stone steps and the surf breaks over boulders, which jut stark and black against the glitter of blue-grey waters of three oceans — the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea. This is Kanyakumari (previously known as Cape Comorin) at the southern tip of India The eastern sky is flushed pink and mauve and, as the sun, an enormous flaming sphere, emerges over the misty horizon, it is greeted with a bray of conch shells, the tinkle of bells from the nearby temple dedicated to the goddess Kumari and the chant of mantras over a loudspeaker affixed to a nearby pole. The morning has a pale, fragile loveliness, but the light hardens quickly, bringing into focus two rocky islands. On one of them stands an incongruous, if not downright ugly, 133-foot stone statue of Thiruvalluvar, a Tamil poet who extolled virtue, wealth and love. On the other outcrop, some distance away, is a temple dedicated to Swami Vivekananda, a beloved Indian scholar, monk and philosopher. Early-morning devotees swarm like small freckles at the entrance of the distant shrine.

MARGARET DEEFHOLTS PHOTOS TOP: The Vivekananda Rock Memorial in Kanyakumari. ABOVE: Locals on the beach in Kanyakumari.

Back at my modest little hotel, I tuck into a typical South Indian breakfast: idli-sambar — spongy rice cakes — that pair with a soupy lentil and a masala dosa, a crepe shell stuffed with spicy potatoes and eaten with mint chutney. To finish off the meal, my waiter pours me sweet milky South Indian coffee in a tiny cup. Hunger pangs allayed, I explore

the town, strolling along narrow streets flanked by houses painted orange, green, purple and red. Local folks wave and smile and a small boy insists on accompanying me as I emerge onto a fisherman’s beach, stacked with canoes. “Nice? You like?” he asks as I aim my camera. Back near the spot where I was earlier this morning, the tide has

ebbed exposing a stretch of beach which is now filled with happy tourists, wading, splashing and clicking group selfies. Children splash in the shallows and bare-chested fishermen harvest tiny crabs and eels from tide pools in a rocky outcrop. Street cart vendors sell icecream, and newspaper cones filled with salted peanuts, stray dogs

sleep in the shade of shop awnings and bare-bodied holy men, their faces smeared with ash, sit crosslegged on the ground with their begging bowls before them. The sun throws sharp-edged shadows along the sidewalks and the mid-day heat and humidity lies blanket-like against my skin. Kanyakumari at first glance is a stronghold of Hindu temples, but India is a land of diversity — both secular and religious — and I come across Our Lady of Ransom Catholic Church, looking like a white icing-covered wedding cake in the blinding sunlight. The interior is serene and deserted, except for a bent old woman kneeling near the altar. The cool marble floor has an Escher-like geometrical pattern that tricks the eye. At the far end, a flower-bedecked shrine encloses a statue of the Virgin Mary and Child. It is one of several churches and pretty little chapels that line the town’s winding streets. At the close of day, I sit on a boulder at the western end of Kanyakumari’s sea front, watching the sun — a blood-orange disc in a sky swathed in purple and magenta — dip into the Arabian Sea. A mile away from the bluster of the town, a long tongue of sand interspersed with tufts of wild grass spreads out towards the water and massive rock formations crouch like humped whales in the gathering dusk. It is a lonely, eerie spot. Where the sea licks the shore, a pillar is silhouetted against the purple night sky. It is Kanyakumari’s Christian fishermen’s shrine, surmounted by a statue of the Virgin and Child. Inscriptions read “Stellar Maris – O Ra Pro Nobis”— Mary, Star of the Sea, Pray for Us. And the plea: “Save Us From Perils on the Sea.” As the dusk deepens and the day sinks to rest, a fingernail new moon rises in the vast star-studded night sky.

STAFF REPORTER

NBA star Kelly Olynyk held his annual basketball camp, the Olynyk Klynyk, this week in Kamloops. He spent about 10 minutes speaking to media during a break from the action on Wednesday: What did you make of the trade that had you going to Dallas? It’s fine. I’m coming back for the kids. Whatever happens, the camp is going to be the same. It doesn’t change anything. We’re giving them a good week of camp, some skills, some fun and some interaction, leaving an impression on them and, hopefully, have them aspire to be something bigger than what they thought they could when they came here. It [the trade] got called off or fell through, or whatever it was. It’s nothing now. T H U G S

What do you think Jimmy Butler will bring to the Heat? It’s awesome. Jimmy is an unbelievable player. Real tough guy, real hard worker. Plays both ends of the floor. Has been an allstar in multiple years. He’s a good player and someone who will make our team better, for sure.

It’s a business. It is what it is. You get paid to do something you love. There’s not much to complain about in this industry. It’s the same as anybody living in Kamloops who has a friend or coworker move. It happens. It’s life. It’s the way the cookie crumbles.

With Hassan Whiteside leaving, will that open up more opportunities for you? You never know. Hopefully, opportunities continue to grow next year. That’s what you’re looking for. Whether he’s here or not. I think he got traded, so it’ll open up a little bit of space, but you’ve still got to earn your minutes and play well.

What are your thoughts on having Nick Nurse coaching Team Canada at the Basketball World Cup? He’s a great coach. He won a championship in his first year. It’s unbelievable to have him step up and coach us. I haven’t talked to him yet, but I’m looking forward to speaking to him. He called me this morning. I’ll give him a call back. I’ve heard nothing but good things from everybody who knows him, has been around him, who’s worked with him.

How unsettling is it to be part of trade rumours and see friends and teammates leave?

Do you think having Nick Nurse as head coach will sway NBA stars to play for Canada?

That’s a good question for whoever those guys are. Everybody wants to represent our country. Everybody wants to play with each other. It’s not really about who is the coach. It’s about your physical health, your contract, your career. Those are things that stop you more than a coach. Do you know who is going to play for Canada in China? We expect everybody to come. If you’re healthy and your contract is in shape, I think everybody is going to be there. For the guys who aren’t, they probably have something they need to work through. Some are saying Canada could be a medal favourite at the World Cup. What are your expectations? We have a great group of guys, a talented country. It’s only getting more and more talented.

What do you make of your group, which some are calling the group of death, with Australia, Senegal and Lithuania? You have to finish in the top two to advance. If not, the Olympic dream is over. They’re some good teams. It’s tough, but that’s the way it worked out. You’re going to have to beat them anyway. For us, it’s a good test at the start, to hit the ground running rather than building up to something. You’ve got to get through that. Can Canada get to the Olympics? I think we’re ready to make that jump. See OLYNYK, A27

Kamloops athletes aiming to shine at track and field provincials MARTY HASTINGS

Spots for provincial teams will be up for grabs at the B.C. Athletics Track and Field Championships Jamboree, scheduled to run from Friday to Sunday at Hillside Stadium. Some Kamloops Track and Field Club athletes are aiming to reach standards or place well enough at provincials this weekend to earn spots on Team B.C. “We are definitely cruising along very strongly,” KTFC throws coach Dylan Armstrong told KTW on Wednesday. “I’m definitely happy with how things are going with the club.” The jamboree will serve as selection trials for B.C. teams in the senior, under-20, U18 and U16 divisions for their respective Canadian championships. Bazil Spencer is among the local club’s most promising athletes, a high jumper who has already reached the Team B.C. standard, but needs a top-two finish this weekend to reach U20 nationals, which will run from July 25 to July 28 in Montreal. Spencer will be able to see where he stacks up against one of the country’s best, with Canadian champion and Olympian high jumper Michael Mason of Nanoose Bay expected to be among the 700-or-so athletes in attendance. Throws competitors to watch this weekend include para athletes Greg Stewart, the 7-foot-2 powerhouse from Kamloops who continues to chase his goal of competing in shot put at the 2020 Paralympic Summer Games in Tokyo, and Josh Farrell, a Para Pan-Am Games gold medallist. Both Stewart and Farrell are trying to earn spots on the Canadian roster for the World Para Athletics Championships, which will be held in November in Dubai.

KTW FILE PHOTO Kamloops Track and Field Club athlete Kian Zabihi set the under-16 Canadian record in hammer throw with a heave of 67.56 metres in Kamloops on Wednesday. He will be in action this weekend at the B.C. championships at Hillside Stadium.

Saturday and Sunday.

Meanwhile, Kian Zabihi and Matt Arnold, both hammer throwers, and Jacob Taylor and Cole Bibby, both of whom use the javelin as their weapon of choice, are among the topranked athletes in the nation in their respective age categories. “We’ve never had this kind of depth,” Armstrong said. “The work is paying off and I have a great group of kids. “Every week I get emails about people wanting to come here and train and be a part of our group.” Judy Armstrong, KTFC president and meet director for provincials, said there is a need for volunteers this weekend. “All you need is a good attitude,” she told KTW in an email. Tasks include positioning starting blocks before and after races, putting up high-jump bars, retrieving throwing implements, raking pits and moving hurdles. Periods of rain or showers are in the forecast on Friday,

PODIUM HUNTERS KTFC athletes were in action last weekend at the Jack Brow Memorial Meet in Kelowna. Miriam Cavani set a Canadian record in masters long jump, leaping 4.35 metres to establish the mark and win gold at the meet. She also set a meet record in high jump. In throws action, Matt Arnold placed first in hammer throw, Jacob Taylor won gold in javelin and Tianna Zabihi finished atop the podium in shot put. Kian Zabihi set a meet record in hammer throw (64.53m) and Cole Bibby set a meet record in javelin (54.66m). Ryland Sheldon won gold in high jump and long jump, Fernando Bouthillier won bronze in triple jump and Sophia D’Amore placed fifth in triple jump and seventh in high jump. On the track, Parker Lehmann placed first in the 800m, Sheldon won bronze in the 100m, Jensen Tremblay was fifth in the 200m, Kayla Hermiston placed seventh in the 2,000m and Helen Geise finished eighth in the 200m.

Klynykgoers relish posterization MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Olynyk wants to seize opportunity

Kiana Kaczur and Ashtynn Gurnsey were among the girls who forced a rare turnover from Kelly Olynyk in three-onthree play on Wednesday at the 7-foot NBA star’s annual camp, the Olynyk Klynyk, held at the TCC. “Me, Kiana and Morgan were all on him,” Ashtynn said. “I think I may have tripped him accidentally and got the ball off of him. “You just have to make sure the ref is not looking.” Memories such as those — stealing the ball from the sprawling Miami Heat forward — have been made since the camp started in 2013, when 40 people attended. This year’s Klynyk brought about 110 wide-eyed future hoops stars to the Tournament Capital Centre. “It’s an amazing experience,” Kiana said. “It’s not every day you get to meet an NBA player and we’re here to improve our skills.” Added Ashtynn: “Not only do we improve our skills, but it’s also very fun and the people here are super nice and amazing.” Olynyk was not always super nice and amazing to the kids during three-onthree play, during which part of the thrill was watching the big man posterize the campers with tomahawk jams.

Were you cheering for the Raptors in the playoffs? Growing up there, being Canadian, it’s great for not only the city of Toronto, but our country. It’s inspirational for the fans, the kids, everybody in this country. It’s really cool to see. You have one team out of 30 up there. To have a shot at it and win it, it’s amazing and it only helps basketball in this country.

Basketball analyst Stephen A. Smith said he doesn’t want to see the championship come north of the border again. What do you make of that? Basketball is a global game. They’re talking about putting teams all over the world. I don’t know about the numbers and the revenue, but it’s good for basket-

Strategies for stealing the ball from Kelly Olynyk at the Olynyk Klynyk on Wednesday included the swarm-and-hack technique. Kiana Kaczur (left) and Ashtynn Gurnsey (middle) had it mastered.

I worked on a different routine, setting my body straight, and it worked. Quite a few of your statistical numbers were down. Were you battling injuries? I was a little banged up last year. In the beginning, I didn’t get the same opportunities I wanted, but I finished strong and got the opportunities and tried to make the most of it. It’s all about seizing opportunities when they come. The more you play, the more production you’re going to be able to put out. For me, it’s about trying to get that opportunity and hold it.

WELCOME TO THe Holmes Is WHere

I remember watching the Donny & Marie variety show in the late 1970s and seeing the siblings sing their duet, A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock ’n Roll. I thought of that when I read a man’s profile he sent me regarding his deal-breakers. He playfully stated that perhaps country music would be at the top of the list. He was being tongue-incheek with it and I liked that he had a sense of humour. Seeing now how happy and in love he is, I bet he was first in line for Rascal Flatts tickets. When I think of deal-breakers, I tend to consider the big things, like smoking, partying, unhealthy lifestyles and, of course, depending on age, a person’s thoughts on having kids. These things are important. I know a couple who have a fabulous partnership. They are a perfect match (not one of mine). On Sundays, she attends mass and he doesn’t. She told me: “He doesn’t ask me to watch hockey with him, so why would I ask him to go to

who fits the bill. He said they don’t have to share his opinion, but he would like them to have one of their own. I agree that it can be tough to not try to push your opinion on your partner, but if you can show strength in gently expressing your feelings, and listening to their opinions, the key then is to move on. Revisiting and wishing to keep rehash a debate it is where the danger lies. I have had people tell me they don’t like cats. Fair enough, but unless you have a horrible allergy to felines, would you totally discount an amazing person due to their fondness of Garfield? I have had people tell me they hope to find someone who loves to dance. Again, the person they meet may have so many great qualities and truly be the perfect fit, but if they pass them by just because he doesn’t jump up and do the Floss, is it fair to not consider them as a partner? Imagine if he can make your heart dance. Now that is what truly matters. In all seriousness, the

I am sure marriage counsellors were much busier following the 2016 U.S. presidential election. It’s one thing if a couple does not share the same party as Republicans and Democrats can co-exist under one roof. But adding Donald Trump to the mix probably caused turmoil in some unions.

TRUE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST BELIEVE HIS WORD

M

oses asks God, when he encounters him on Mount Sinai, “What shall I tell the Israelites if they ask me your name?” God answers, “I Am Who I Am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you.” Given the peculiarities of the Hebrew language, this phrase can be in the past, present or future tense. It is a rather mysterious response to Moses’ question, but many scholars think it is a reflection of the timeless and eternal nature of the Almighty. God is, and was and ever will be without beginning or end. The religious elite of Jesus’ day were well aware of this “name” and knew it could only be used by God. They were having an argument with Jesus, trying to discredit him and challenging his claim to be a messenger of God. They said, “We know you’re demonpossessed … Are you greater than our father Abraham? Who do you think you are?” Jesus upped the ante: “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was born, I Am.” The religious elite knew immediately that Jesus was claiming to be more than just a prophet — he was claiming divine status. John the Apostle writes, “At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus

CHRIS KEMPLING You Gotta Have FAITH hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.” The Gospel of John is replete with Jesus’ “I Am” statements — and all of them are significant. The “I Am” statements come when Jesus is teaching his disciples or debating with the Pharisee about his role and mission. “I Am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” This statement is an echo of God’s first act of Creation, saying “Let there be light.” Jesus is the light that can dispel everyone’s darkness. “I Am the gate for the sheep; whoever enters through me will be saved … I Am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” Jesus often used metaphors the people of his sheep-herding culture could appreciate. They knew the “gate” the sheep would pass through after grazing all day in the meadows led to the sheepfold, where the flock would be safe

for the night. The gate was a metaphor for safety for the flock, and the passageway to the community of believers. Not only that, Jesus stated he was a good shepherd, not just a hired hand. He was the owner of the flock and would lay down his life to protect it. And he did. He voluntarily surrendered his life so that sinners could be cleansed from all their sins. He paid the penalty of sin for us. Furthermore, Jesus promised us all the reward of eternal life. He said, “I Am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” This is quite a statement. Obviously our physical bodies die, but clearly Jesus was referring to something much more important — our spiritual selves. This is a promise only God can make, and Jesus, as a member of the Trinity, makes it. Jesus also said, “I Am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” The central vine is that which is rooted to the ground. It is the supporting structure and the source of all nourishment for the branches. Staying connected with Jesus is absolutely essential, for without

this connection we are powerless and will not bear fruit. And by fruit, I mean sharing the Gospel is such a way that others come to believe as well. “I Am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry.” This passage in the sixth chapter of John is what inspires the Christian communion ceremony. Of course, Jesus is referring to spiritual health when he says we will “never go hungry.” He is the everlasting source of our spiritual nourishment. The final “I Am” is probably the most powerful: “I Am the Way, the Truth, and Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Jesus claims to be the only path to God. This is a stumbling block, not surprisingly, for those who follow other faiths. But we cannot be true followers of Jesus Christ unless we believe his words, his truth. We cannot be fearful about declaring what Jesus said. Our own salvation, and those of our loved ones and friends, depend on us sharing the “I Am” statements of Jesus.

FRIDAY, July 5, 2019

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Mickey (Michael) Martino It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Mickey (Michael) Martino in his 85th year. Mickey is lovingly remembered by his wife of 63 years Gloria and sons Jay (Meghan) of Ottawa and Jeff (Tannis) of North Vancouver. He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren Emma, Michael and Aidan and his sisters Victoria, Pearl and Happy, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Mickey was born and raised in a large family in Oliver, BC where he attended and graduated from South Okanagan Secondary. When he wasn’t picking fruit, he excelled at sports, especially baseball and basketball, which took him from Oliver to various locations around BC, Canada and the US. After playing on men’s baseball teams since the age of 14 and also playing for multiple championship basketball teams, he was offered a contract to play professional baseball with the St. Louis Browns (now the Baltimore Orioles). But before reporting to spring training, he was offered a full scholarship for both basketball and baseball to Seattle Pacific College. Mickey was proudly the first member of his family to attend and graduate college, earning a BSc degree in 1958. He was honoured for his athletic achievements by being the first 4-year letterman in the school’s history. During his university days, he married the girl that stole his heart in 1955 and they resided together in Seattle for several years. In 1959, Mickey was offered a position as Teacher, Coach and Athletic Director of Kamloops Secondary School. He accepted and embarked on the journey that would alter thousands of

lives. He arrived in Kamloops and proceeded to shake up athletics in the region while adding counseling to his resume. He was instrumental in raising the profile of high school sports at Kam High and the entire North Okanagan region and also led the charge to bring high school football to the North Okanagan region. He somehow also found time to coach multiple teams at the same time. Mickey was a pioneer in fundraising for school athletics. He created the Kamloops Secondary School Athletics & Recreation Society (KSARS) as a much-needed fundraising organization that allowed Kamloops teams to even the playing field against their competition who were concentrated in the Okanagan and beyond. KSARS became a fundraising juggernaut that was later replicated by many high school and college programs and it allowed Kam High athletics to flourish. As a result of Mickey’s dedication as athlete, coach and builder, he has been recognized and honoured by his peers, including induction into the S.O.S.S. Wall of Fame, being named a charter member of the Kam High Sports Hall of Fame along with a scholarship created in his name and induction to the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame in 1999. We are incredibly proud of Mickey’s sporting accomplishments. Mickey taught for 37 years from 1959 to 1997. In 1979, he moved to Westsyde Secondary where he removed himself from athletics and focused on his true calling, nurturing the students and their well-being. He always championed the kids and tirelessly went above and beyond to help his students rise to their potential. He was a huge proponent of doing what it took to get

a student through high school, as he greatly valued the high school diploma. He was very successful at this task, as I’m sure many of his students would agree. In retirement, he spent countless hours enjoying his cabin at North Barriere Lake with Gloria. This was truly one of his happy places and they spent many summers together enjoying the outdoors, and of course, building things with a chainsaw.

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director

Every Friday in KTW!

Q. How are you going to pay today, part 2?

A gathering of family and friends to celebrate Mickey’s amazing and adventurous life will be announced at a later date, most likely in the fall. A special thank you to Dr. Hollman, to the nursing staff of RIH 7-North, as well as his long-term caregivers at Pine Grove Seniors Community. We are indebted to you all for your kindness, generosity and caring.

A. I felt intimidated and pretty scared. How WAS I going to pay for my Dad’s funeral today? I reached for my Mastercard and hoped I had room on it. The funeral home was happy. A few years later I became a funeral director, borrowed to open my own funeral home, and vowed never to treat clients that way.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the scholarship in Mickey’s name (https://www. bcicf.ca/type-of-funds/mickey-martino-bursaryscholarship-fund/) or the young person’s charity of your choice that best honours Mickey’s commitment to Kamloops youth. !

It is with heavy hearts and much sadness that we announce the passing of Norma Spiers on

It is with deepest sorrow we announce the sudden passing of the most loving, kindhearted Husband, Father, Brother, Son, Uncle, Cousin and Friend.

She was predeceased by her husband Ken in 2016 and is survived by her children Greg (Anne) and Debbie (Cam), grandchildren Jillian, Chris and Matt, and numerous friends and family in England. Norma (née Palframan) was born in Rotherham, England on November 13, 1931. As a child she endured WWII, being evacuated with her siblings to Wentworth in the Yorkshire countryside. She met the love of her life Ken Spiers at age 10 and they began dating several years later. They were married on March 22, 1952 and were together for 64 years. Norma and Ken emigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1958. After 5 years, they moved back to England to have children and then returned to Canada in 1966 to live in Kitimat, BC. Two years later, they relocated to Prince George, where Noma worked for many years as an OR Instrument Aide at the P.G. Regional Hospital. After retiring, Norma and Ken moved to Kamloops to be closer to family. Norma was a feisty English girl with a heart of gold who enjoyed her tea and cookies! She loved her family dearly and cherished the time spent with her grandchildren as they were growing up. She was an avid gardener and spent many an evening dancing the night away with Ken.

In Loving Memory Of

1926 - 2019

August 13, 1955 - June 1, 2019

With broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of Peter Alan Snook at the age of 63 in Greece. Left to mourn his passing are his daughter Meghan (Brice), grandchildren Malcolm and Emma, two sons Kris (Adela), grandson Kristian and Kevin (Tracey), two grandsons Sheldon and Declan, his ex-wife Bernadette, sisters-in-law and their families, two brothers Hans and David and many friends. Peter was predeceased by his parents Kenneth and Ilse Snook. Peter was born in England, moved to Canada shortly after and lived the majority of his youth in Richmond, BC. He later moved to Kamloops and managed the Stockmens Hotel and other hotels across Canada. Eventually Peter decided to explore his birthplace and spent a year staying in various bed & breakfasts and wrote a blog about his travels. When the opportunity arose to complete the construction of Zarka Villas on Evia, Greece; he jumped at the chance. The last five years of his life he poured his heart into Zarka Villas, the village, the people, the environment, the friends he had made, the dogs he rescued... the whole island of Evia.

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

Christopher Ian Bandy It is with great sadness that we announce the tragic passing of our brother Christopher Ian Bandy, taken far too soon from his family on the night of June 28, 2019 at the age of 34. Chris is predeceased by both his parents Ron Bandy and Tracy Tinline. Left to grieve this loss are his brother Patrick Bandy (Kate), sister Ashley Bandy (Thomas) and his nephews Jack, Oliver and Finley. Also left behind are his grandparents Jackie and Tom Wolfe, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends who Chris cared for tremendously. Chris was born on March 17, 1985 at Royal Inland Hospital. Raised in Kamloops, BC, he graduated from NorKam Secondary in 2003. Through his high school years he enjoyed playing all sports, especially football and rugby in which he excelled at. In the years to follow, he was an avid fan of multiple sports from NHL, NFL to MMA. Chris would later find a career with CN Rail where he was a supervisor for many years, travelling all over Western Canada. He took his job seriously and was rarely off the clock. He was a hard working and loyal man who was always trying to move forward. Chris enjoyed spending time with family and friends whenever he could. Whether it was getting together for a game of cards, watching the fights or shooting a round of golf, he was always interested in whatever was happening. He was a generous man who wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the tab or help someone out however it may have been needed. Those that knew him know of what a stand up guy he was. He will be missed tremendously. His Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Friday, July 12, 2019 at the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Dr., with a get-together afterwards.

September 24, 1945 – June 28, 2019 It is with deep regret and sorrow we announce the passing of Dan Jones. Dan passed away peacefully on June 28, 2019 at the age of 73 after a very short battle with cancer at Marjorie Willoughby Hospice. In which he was surrounded by love with Diane (wife), Sherry (daughter) and Danielle (granddaughter). Dan will also be lovingly remembered by Skye (grandson), Maddox (great-grandson) and an abundance of family and dear friends.

The More You Give The more you give, The more you get, The more you laugh, The less you fret.

Dan was born on September 24, 1945 in Lytton, BC to his parents Eric and Joan Jones.

The more you do unselfishly.

Dan joined the IUOE Local 115 Union in 1963 and had a very long and successful career with FRPD for 40 years.

The more you live abundantly.

Dan married Diane on May 14, 1979. They shared a loving and beautiful 40 years together.

The more of everything you share,

In the recent years, Dan joined the Moose Lodge 1552, which brought him much enjoyment and great new friends.

The more you’ll always have to spare.

He enjoyed the simple things in life, and when he wasn’t working, watching Nascar, or spending time with his family, he was on the lake fishing trying to catch “Walter”.

The more you love,

He will be missed, and forever loved by so many.

the more you’ll find,

Rest in Peace, and until we meet again.

That life is good and friends are kind.

As per Dan’s requests, we will not be having a service, but instead a gathering at a later date for family and friends to come enjoy each other and honour his life.

For only what we give away,

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Pasquale (Pat) Rocca

December 18, 1935 – Cortale, Catanzaro, Italy July 2, 2019 – Kamloops, BC

Hazel Mudiman

(née Moorhouse) Born 18 May 1940 Died 29 June 2019

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.

Pasquale was born in Cortale, Catanzaro, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1950, settling in Lytton, BC, before moving to Kamloops in 1967.

I am a thousand winds that blow. Hazel was born in Rochdale, England to Edgar Hanson Moorhouse and Henrietta Moorhouse. She had one brother Peter which she had a strong bond with throughout her life. As a child she was very active and she had a great sense of humour. In 1963, Hazel accepted a position as a PE teacher in Salmon Arm, where she then found the love of her life David Mudiman. So, started the next chapter of Hazel’s life.

Pasquale is also survived by sisters Angela Greto, Maria VanderVelden and sister-in-law Maria Rocca, as well as many nieces and nephews.

In 1967, she had an accident where she lost her ability to speak and a lot of her mobility, changing her life forever.

Pasquale was predeceased by his parents Pietro and Marianna Rocca, brother Giuseppe Rocca and brothers-in-law Giuseppe Greto and Peter VanderVelden.

This did not stop Hazel from overcoming her obstacles and making the family she knew she deserved. In 1970 giving birth to Katrina, and 1972 Paul who is married to Staci.

A Prayer vigil will be held at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 255 Nicola Street, Kamloops, BC on Monday, July 8, 2019 at 8:00 pm, followed by the Funeral Mass officiated by Father Derrick Cameron on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at 11:00 am.

DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE & WEEP MARY FRYE (1932)

After many years of a joyful family life her beloved husband passed away in 2003, from then on, she needed to learn how to be more independent again. Her four grandchildren Hayden, Payge, Thomas and Nicolas and in 2018 she became a great-grandmother to Damien.

I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die!

A big thank you to her loving caregivers Shirley, Bonnie and Doreen. A special thank you to all the services that helped her live independently. A Celebration of Life will take place at Kamloops United Church, 421 St. Paul St., Kamloops on Saturday, July 6, 2019 at 7:00 pm.
