Bear aware: Calls keep officers busy AT LEAST 25 REPORTS THIS WEEK, WITH ONE BRUIN BEING DESTROYED MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Conservation officers are dealing with a flurry of calls about bears in the city as they continue to monitor a bear family that has moved from North Kamloops to the downtown riverfront, prompting sporadic closures of parks on both sides of the Thompson. The band of bruins was on McArthur Island on Monday afternoon, prompting the city to temporary close the popular recreation spot. The sow bear and her two cubs were then spotted on Tuesday morning sleeping in trees along the Rivers Trail near Schubert Drive and Nelson Avenue. By Wednesday, at least two of those three bears — the mama and a cub — were spotted in Waterfront Park, the riverfront area between Riverside and Pioneer parks. The sighting led the city to close that span of land between the parks and it remain closed to the public as of KTW press deadline on Thursday. Kamloops conservation officer Rob Armstrong told KTW the goal is to give the bears space so they will move out of town on their own. “Any other action for us to take, if we were to try and tranquilize them or move them, it’s extremely stressful on the animals,” he said. Armstrong is advising members of the public

to stay out of the areas the bears are roaming through, noting there were many people who stopped to look at the bears along the Rivers Trail in North Kamloops on Tuesday. He said giving the bears space will allow the sow to feel safe enough to attempt to move through town, but if there are too many people in the area, the mother bear could feel threatened and charge. “As soon as we were able to cordon the area off and everybody left, it was only a matter of minutes before that sow came back down the tree and kept moving,” Armstrong said. So far, there have been no reports of the bears accessing garbage and the Conservation Officer Service is asking residents to ensure they manage their attractants. “There’s been no defensive behaviour, there’s been no habituation that I’m aware of at this point,” Armstrong said, adding the bears will likely have to be put down if they become habituated to human food sources. He said simply relocating the bears doesn’t typically work as habituated bears will either starve or return to the non-natural food source. Residents can manage attractants by picking fruit off their trees and refraining from leaving garbage out at night. The bears downtown are not the only bruins conservation officers are dealing with in Kamloops.

Armstrong said he had received 25 calls about bears between Monday and Thursday, noting some are likely for the same bears. “There’s probably a bear in every community in town right now,” Armstrong said, noting the number of calls is normal for this time of year. Recent reports have come from across the Kamloops area, including Juniper Ridge, Knutsford, Dallas, Campbell Creek, Westsyde, the Tk’emlups reserve, Brocklehurst and North Kamloops. “They’re around, so there’s never a more important time than right now for people to keep their attractants secure,” Armstrong said. While there have been no reported injuries, he said there have been some calls of bears charging at people. Last weekend, a bear in Dallas had to be destroyed after ripping open a tent and eating some food stored within it. “The people were not in the tent when the bear went in to it,” Armstrong said, noting leaving food in the tent showed a lack of due diligence. People can check wildsafebc.com for helpful information on how to manage their attractants to ensure bears packing on the pounds for hibernation don’t become habituated to non-natural food sources and a threat to the public. For updates on these and other bear sightings, go online to kamloops.ca/notices.

Former city resident has frontrow seat to Hong Kong protests TODD SULLIVAN

STAFF REPORTER

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

Patrick Blennerhassett has had a first-hand view of the chaos that has erupted in Hong Kong. The sports reporter for the South China Morning Post is a former Kamloops resident who moved to the region last year. He shared his first-hand observations of the protests in the city with KTW while in the Tournament Capital for a holiday. “It’s a really complicated situation,” he said. “Having been there, and having seen them, and having gone to some of these marches and rallies, and seeing them up close, they’re all incredibly young kids.” The protests started in response to proposed amendments to Hong Kong’s extradition laws, which would have allowed for extraditions to China, a country with stricter laws and harsher penalties. But there are fears the amended law would be the first step

toward China taking stronger control of Hong Kong, which is a special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China, but which has its own government and its own de facto constitution — the Hong Kong Basic Laws. But those Basic Laws only guarantee residents’ rights and freedoms for 50 years following Hong Kong’s return to China from the British in 1997. “They feel as if they don’t have a future,” Blennerhassett said of the protesters. “You grow up in a city that feels democratic, feels as if you have your own personal rights and human rights. But the job market is incredibly difficult, school is cutthroat, you’re never going to get into the property market,” he said. “Now, somebody is telling you that basically, by 2047, you’re just going to be another part of China. So a lot of them say, ‘We don’t have anything to live for.’” The protests reached a new level on June 9, with as many as one-million people — about one-

seventh of Hong Kong’s population — in the streets. At one point, protests shut down Hong Kong’s airport. In spite of such numbers, Blennerhassett said it can be easy to go about your day in Hong Kong without ever encountering protesters. He said while the protests have led to certain streets being shut down, the movement has not crippled the city. “And I think a lot of the expats that I work with, that aren’t necessarily in journalism, they are just sort of avoiding it,” he said. Blennerhassett said the experience has given him a new perspective on issues around the world. “Being in Hong Kong, and watching these protesters, who feel as if they have no future whatsoever, it really makes my problems feel insignificant,” he said. “That’s probably the biggest thing that I’ve taken from it, that we have it pretty good here in Canada.”

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS

Frenchies Poutinerie in downtown Kamloops had to close early on Tuesday — but for a very good reason. Owner Élie Hana was on his way to Barriere, where Mounties had recovered his distinctive food trailer, which was stolen from his South Kamloops home on July 30. The company posted an update on its Facebook page on Tuesday evening, announcing the trailer had been found on a property near Barriere, which is about 45 minutes north of Kamloops on Highway 5. “Thanks to Barriere RCMP and an awesome resident for finding our trailer hidden on a property just before Barriere,” the company said in post, not-

ing the trailer is at the Barriere RCMP detachment, undergoing a forensic examination. Frenchies staff said police indicated the trailer is not damaged beyond repair. The customized food trailer was stolen from the area of Pine Street and Sixth Avenue some time between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. on July 30. A lock over the trailer’s hitch appeared to have been cut off. The theft occurred just as Frenchies staff were prepping the trailer for use at the following weekend’s Rockin’ River Music Festival in Merritt, with 300 boxes of potatoes being purchased. It was to have been the single-largest event at which the trailer would be used. Frenchies has had the trailer

for at least 18 months and its value is estimated to be in the six figures. The trailer is adorned with a photo of poutine and the company logo. It has an awning over the trailer door and window and a deep fryer vat on the roof. Initial reports indicated the trailer may have been spotted days later near Salmo, a small town in the Kootenays, but those sightings turned out to be that of a different food truck and trailer that operates in the region — the La Poutinery. Another tip suggested the trailer may have been taken to the Lower Mainland. Calls by KTW to the Barriere RCMP detachment were not returned by press deadline on Thursday.

No jail time for man in standoff A man who engaged in a nine-hour standoff with police in Sahali in February has been given a six-month conditional sentence order, a five-year firearms prohibition and one year of probation. Gary Wayne Kimberley, 58, pleaded guilty to willfully resisting a peace officer and possessing a weapon for dangerous purposes during the incident that took place on the night of Feb. 16 and into the morning of Feb. 17 at a townhouse unit at 2020 Robson Pl. According to police, who responded to the residence at about 8 p.m., Kimberley came out of

the house at one point holding what appeared to be a black handgun. When challenged by police, Kimberley retreated into his residence, closing the door and refusing to surrender to police despite negotiations via telephone. The emergency response team also responded to the call and set off loud stun grenades and tear gas in a successful bid to have Kimberley surrender. Upon his arrest, police noticed Kimberley was intoxicated. A search of the townhouse yielded several air pistols.

USE PRIDE WEEK TO GET INFORMED

S

ome may think of Pride Week as little more than a rainbowcoloured spectacle, but there is crucially important meaning behind the events that have taken place in Kamloops this week. Pride Week began this past Monday and concludes this Sunday with the popular (and colourful) Pride Parade in the downtown core. The parade will be followed by an after-party at The Noble Pig, after which planning will begin for the 2020 Pride Week next August. While Pride Week does indeed endeavour to bring the community together, its core goal is to celebrates members of the LGBTQ2S+ community, the diversity of sexual orientations and gender identities. It honours those who have fought for gay and trans rights in the face of discrimination and hate and offers hope that we can do better. Pride is open to plenty of different interpretations and seeks to become ever more inclusive — even as particular Pride organizations, such as Vancouver’s, wrestle with the decision to include various members of the community who may not share the view that other views should not be shared. It is easy to sit back and criticize those who dive fully into Pride Week. One does need not to work hard to find that discrimination exists — just check out social media posts associated with Pride to understand that, while society as a whole has progressed, many remain uneducated and ill-informed. If not for social movements such as Pride Week and the groups associated with it, homosexuality may still be a crime, same-sex couple may still be prohibited from getting married and coming out and sharing love publicly would still be that much more dangerous. If you still feel uneasy about all things Pride and if you remain uncertain about what it is all about, do yourself a favour and attend this Sunday’s parade (it begins at about 10 a.m., downtown at the former Stuart Wood elementary). Better yet, contact Pride members via their website (kamloopspride. com) and start the discussion.

Election madness begins

T

he federal election campaign has yet to officially begin, but we have already seen two gaffes — and they were not committed by any political party or candidate. One revolved around the rather confusing message from Elections Canada regarding third-party comment on issues, in particular climate change. The other centred on the two federal leadership debates being organized by the Leaders’ Debate Commission. Groups that wants climate change front and centre in the campaign discussion were concerned such talk would be seriously silenced due to advice they received from Elections Canada staff earlier this summer. An Elections Canada official warned groups in a training session that because People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier has expressed doubts about the legitimacy of climate change, any group that promotes it as real or as an emergency could be considered partisan. Any partisan activity — including advertising, surveys or any kind of campaign $500 or more — would require a charity to register as a third party for the election, an onerous requirement that could impact a group’s charitable tax status. This week, chief electoral officer Stephane Perrault clarified the situation, noting if organizations spend $500 or more advertising on an issue identified with a party during the election — Bernier’s climate change stance applies here — they would be required to register with Elections Canada as third parties and would have a spending limit of $511,700 during

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS the election period. This legislation has been in effect since the Liberals introduced it in the 1990s, but it would seem prudent to amend the law to deal with issues — like climate change — that are fact, not opinion. Bernier resigned as foreign affairs minister in Stephen Harper’s government in 2008 after he left classified documents in the apartment of his girlfriend, Julie Couillard, who was previously married to a member of a Quebec biker gang. Perusing Bernier’s platform, which includes denial of humancaused climate change and a desire to build border fences, one might wonder if he also left his common sense in that apartment. As for the elections law that has created this confusion, it’s a good thing the original Rhinoceros Party is no longer running candidates. Based on Election Canada’s stance on “issues associated with a particular party or candidate,” we would have a hard time getting to the polls amid the party’s platform vow to repeal the law of gravity. Meanwhile, Bernier is at the centre of the debate controversy

— and in this case, he has a solid argument. Former governor-general David Johnston is the first-ever debates commissioner. His job is to organize two debates — one in English and one in French — during the campaign. In order to get a place on the stage, a party has to meet two of three criteria: it has to have at least one member who was elected under its banner, it has to have candidates running in 90 per cent of ridings and it has to have attracted at least four per cent of the vote in the previous election or have a “legitimate chance” of winning seats, according to credible polls. Bernier’s party meets the first two criteria, but polls say he does not meet the third piece. Polls also confidently predicted an NDP landslide in B.C. in 2013. Polls also pointed to a Wild Rose Party victory in Alberta in 2012. Polls had also placed Hilary Clinton in the White House in 2016. But I digress. Bernier’s party is running candidates from coast to coast and he is shut out of the debates. The Bloc Québécois, a party dedicated to breaking up Canada, runs candidates solely in Quebec and its leader, Yves-François Blanchet, has been invited to the debate. Quebec has 78 ridings. There are 338 ridings in Canada. If the Bloc Québécois runs a candidate in every riding in the province, the party will be taking part in just 23 per cent all constituencies in the nation. Bizarre doesn’t begin to describe the zaniness of this year’s election — and the writ has yet to drop. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

TRUDEAU’S ODD ‘RULE OF LAW’ Editor: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claims he was trying to save jobs when he communicated with former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, directly and indirectly, a year ago. Now that Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion has tabled his report, our prime minister wants to have it both ways: he said he takes full responsibility for the matter, yet he is adamant he does not need to apologize for defending Canadian jobs.

As I understand it, if the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavelin proceeds and if the company is found criminally responsible, it will be precluded from seeking government contracts for several years. These contracts would then be open for other companies to bid on them — with those other companies including Canadian firms. It seems to me that Trudeau is actually fighting — not for Canadian jobs, but to save jobs in or near

his riding in Quebec. Trudeau likes to talk about the “rule of law” when China wants him to intervene in the Huawei extradition matter, but he was willing to assert influence, and I would say pressure, on those handling the criminal proceedings of this domestic matter. Trudeau should not use words he does not fully understand, such as “rule of law” and “taking full responsibility.” Bruce Swanson Kamloops

RUBE BAND MAKES MUSICAL REMEMBER CONSERVATIVE-SNC LAVALIN SCANDAL? MEMORIES FOR ALL Editor: Re: The Aug. 16 KTW story on the Kamloops Rube Band (‘Rube band marks 70 years’): Congratulations. Three cheers to the Kamloops Rube Band, known as the Kamloops Ambassadors of Fun, for celebrating seven decades of making music. Besides entertaining fans with their music, there is a joke or two and, this time, a story about their recent road trip to Newfoundland. The 70th anniversary show of the band at Music in the Park this summer was spectacular, from an original piece the band played 70 years ago to Claude Richmond conducting his own arrangements to their theme song, Happy Days Are Here Again. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable performance. We’re looking forward to seeing the Kamloops Rube Band again at Music in the Park next year. Eileen McBride Kamloops

Editor: Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod said she deplores the actions of Prime Minster Justin Trudeau in the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Is she joking? Some of us remember the real scandal, when then-prime

minister Stephen Harper agreed to sell the reactor division of the country’s billiondollar crown corporation, Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., to the private firm SNCLavalin Inc. Canadian taxpayers weren’t guaranteed any money from that sale.

SNC-Lavalin gave the Harper government $15 million and the Harper government gave SNC-Lavalin $75 million. Canadian taxpayers ended up paying $60 million for the privilege of no longer owning that chunk of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., while SNCLavalin got the lion’s share of

SMOKERS NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM RIH PROPERTY Editor: If you want to smoke, go to RIH I am at the hospital weekly for cancer treatment and walk up from Columbia Street to the cancer ward. Without exception, I regularly meet people smoking on the stairs and directly in front of the main doors of the hospital. No smoking signs are clearly posted on

hospital grounds, yet there are always puffers there and I am forced to walk through the smoke screen. I have spoken several times to security and have contacted them by email. The response is, ‘We know it’s a problem and we’re talking about it.” Enforcement is non-existent. It’s time for action.

Panel calls for better suicideprevention services for youth KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

between 2008 and 2012.

A panel of experts said there is a need for more timely access to mental health supports and services in rural areas of British Columbia to try to prevent child and youth suicides. The panel reviewed 111 suicides between Jan. 1, 2013, and June 30, 2018, and found that prescribing guidelines for children and youth in need of psychiatric medication were also not available to all health professionals. It found as well that families could not always get access to services for children and youths. The death review panel — appointed by the chief coroner and consisting of a senior RCMP officer, doctors, school, First Nation and government officials, among others — made three recommendations to try and reduce child and youth suicides. Those include distributing provincial best practice guidelines on youth mental health and expanding mental health services, including psychiatric services, to non-urban areas. Panel chair Michael Egilson said almost 70 per cent of seri-

ous mental health issues emerge before the age of 25, and programs aimed at children in schools and best practice guidelines for health-care providers help prevent suicides. “Suicide is the leading cause of injury-related death among children and youth in B.C.,” he said in a news release. “Predicting suicide is difficult, which is why it is so important to ensure that all youth have access to the tools and resources to support their mental well-being, as well as ensuring appropriate services are available for youth who are struggling.’’ The review adds to the work of a previous panel that looked at child and youth suicides

Electronic eyes may span river safety are all concerns for the NSBIA, which Heighton said the installation of security cameras may help illuminate. There are also a number of issues any business owner has top of mind, regardless of their location in the city, Heighton noted. “I think you’re always thinking about shoplifting, you’re always thinking about property damage,” he said. Heighton said he is not overly concerned about privacy issues arising from the added cameras as businesses are expected to abide by rules and regulations with video-recording systems. “I think if you happen to incidentally catch something at the street level which is a crime and you can provide that footage to police services, I think that’s an extra advantage for us as a community,” Heighton said. “Having said that, there is a balance of rights that have to be acknowledged in regards to what you use your camera for and the span of capture.” Heighton estimated less than five per cent of NSBIA members have security-camera systems, but he noted prices are likely more reasonable now than they were 10 years ago. Based on numbers he has heard from security companies, Heighton said a business could install a system for about $3,000. While the two business improvement associations will not be paying

The North Shore Business Improvement Association (NSBIA) is piggybacking on its downtown counterpart’s quest for more security cameras at member businesses. Last week, the downtownbased Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (KCBIA) announced it had issued a request for proposal to identify organizations with cost estimates for all equipment and labour required to install security camera systems. The goal is to curb petty crimes and other nefarious activities. Having been working on a request of its own, the NSBIA’s executive director, Jeremy Heighton, said the organization is partnering with the KCBIA to include North Shore members in accessing the winning bidder. “There’s no point in duplicating an RFP process because the reality is both processes would be almost identical,” Heighton told KTW. The NSBIA represents 423 businesses between Overlanders Bridge, Halston Bridge and the Kamloops Golf and Country Club, with about 185 of them being along the Tranquille Road corridor.

for the systems, the hope is that a bulk order from the RFP will mean some discounts for participating businesses. The cameras are to be placed inside a business or mounted on its exterior, depending on the needs of participating owners and landlords, according to KCBIA executive director Carl DeSantis. “What we want to do is make sure that if there’s people who are doing bad things, whether it’s inappropriate or criminal, that there’s an opportunity to hold them accountable,” DeSantis said. The request for proposal closes on Sept. 3. There are no plans to place the cameras on public property.

More gas cash on way to city JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The City of Kamloops received slightly more than initially anticipated in gas tax funding, as a result of a one-time payout this year from the federal government. Ottawa announced in its 2019 budget additional money for municipalities. At the time of the announcement, it was believed the city would receive an additional $3.7 million. Now that funds are being distributed, however, the city is set to receive $3.84 million. The funds come in addition to $1.93 million in community works funds anticipated as part of community works funds, distributed twice annually to local governments via the Union of BC Municipalities, based on a per capita formula. The federal dollars can be used toward a variety of local projects, including roads, bridges, highways, transit and brownfield redevelopment (abandoned, vacant, derelict or underutilized commercial and industrial properties where past actions have resulted in actual or perceived contamination and where there is an active potential for redevelopment). Money can also go toward sports/recreational/tourism/cultural infrastructure or disaster mitigation. City corporate services director Kathy Humphrey said the funds have not yet been earmarked for any local project. She said the city waits until it receives funds before allocating them, in case something happens (such as an election) before the money reaches city coffers. Humphrey said the money will sit in a reserve until the next budget cycle.

Council keeps an eye on rural development JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A seemingly simple lot subdivision in Barnhartvale has led to questions about rural development and urban sprawl. Kamloops council has voted to place a covenant on land in Barnhartvale, which prevents further development, to make clear the city will not be on the hook for servicing the area in the near future. Guy Mercier applied for a development variance permit to reduce the minimum street frontage on a 21-hectare property at 7950 Barnhartvale Rd. in order to pave way for a threelot subdivision, including one panhandle lot. The property is vacant and used to grow agricultural crops. Proposed is a three-lot subdivision, including two lots at least two hectares in size, and a third lot spanning about 17 hectares. The development variance permit application notes that: “The

applicant wishes to retain further subdivision potential for lot three, so that it can be subdivided once additional density can be serviced to municipal water.” However, Kamloops council expressed concern about urban sprawl and water services available in that area. Septic and water are serviced independently for twohectare and larger properties in the Barnhartvale. Noting to staff “red flags,” Coun. Arjun Singh said he did not want to suggest the city would provide water in the future. “It becomes more of a pressure for us to actually service that because there is this piece of land lying there,” Singh said. “I’m a little bit worried about that.” City development director Marvin Kwiatkowski said either the developer would be on the hook for servicing costs or it would come from development cost charges to promote development or expansion in the area. “I would say that’s going to be a long time

Eco-team cites recycling woes It appears some residents continue to be irked and confused by the city’s recycling program. The city’s eco-smart team, consisting of four university students, has identified recycling as both the biggest opportunity and challenge it faced this summer. Team members said visiting residents door-todoor to educate about the city’s recycling program — in a bid to improve the city’s contamination rates — was effective. However, the team also noted some residents continue to be frustrated by a lack of glass recycling opportunity curbside, in addition to a desire by residents for curbside composting and additional recycling opportunities. Blue bins under Recycle BC do not allow for recycling of glass or plastic films, such as shopping bags. They are recyclable only at private bottle depots. The eco-smart team engaged with more than 4,000 people since May on topics of sustainability. In addition to the topic of recycling, the team encouraged residents to utilize reusable products, such as water bottles and reusable mugs, and attended city events to promote myriad other sustainable initiatives. The team also spearheaded a new education program regarding the city’s anti-idling bylaw. During time spent educating people at the Tournament Capital Centre, the team reported challenges in approaching idling vehicles and better success in addressing people outside of their vehicles. Team members said they did not spend much time this summer on the education component, but focused on creating a framework for the future.

away, just given where the focus is, but I guess if we’re looking 50 years out, we don’t want to

preclude any sort of potential long-term,” Kwiatkowski said. However, Singh

Council voted for the application to move ahead, subject to a covenant restricting further

said he does not envision future densification in the rural area of Barnhartvale

development. Council 7-2 in favour, with councillors Mike O’Reilly and Bill Sarai opposed.

A domestic violence investigation was behind a large number of Kamloops Mounties chasing a man through downtown streets on Tuesday afternoon. Sgt. Edward Preto said the 22-year-old man was wanted on a charge of mischief in connection to a domestic violence probe and was spotted by officers at Lansdowne Street and Fifth Avenue. After running from police, the man was finally arrested at the corner of Victoria Street and Second Avenue at 12:45 p.m. Preto said the man ran through a business after being spotted and about five police cruisers scoured the area to find him. The man was compliant with police when officers caught up to him on Victoria Street and taken into custody without incident, Preto told KTW. “When he saw the police cars he gave up,” Preto said.

those who take what is called a gap year — have a more challenging time integrating into the postsecondary culture. “Students who come to university after taking a break, they don’t come to university directly from high school, those students have different needs and different expectations than students who come directly out of high school,” explained Mark Wallin, TRU’s associate dean of arts, curriculum development. When these students come to university after taking a break for a year or two, they can find it challenging to connect with other students socially and may have lost some of their study habits or not be aware of the resources available to them on campus. To address those challenges, Thompson Rivers University is holding a one-day orientation on Tuesday, Aug. 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. “We want to offer these students a sense of who they are as a group, to identify other people in similar situations and give them a day filled with tools and resources to make sure they can be successful,” Wallin said.

The one-day orientation is separate from the traditional student orientation held on Sept. 3, which he noted was not long enough to give students a full understanding of all the resources available to them, including counselling, direct medical services and writing and math centres. “There’s all sorts of stuff that students may or may not know about,” he said. “We want to make sure students are connected up with that.” Wallin said TRU hopes to expand the event’s scope in the future. “Our hope is that this is a starting point,” he said. “This is a group that we can identify, but we see this as a growth area. Potentially, we could expand our orientation engagement with students to have more activities like this, to allow for smaller group connectedness and more of a hands-on engagement with the faculty and its resources.” Students interested in attending the orientation are asked to pre-register by contacting Wallin by phone at 250-371-5769 or by email at mwallin@ tru.ca.

U.S. takes aim at China over feud with Canada TERESA WRIGHT

CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is taking direct aim at how China has tied the detention of two Canadians there to the arrest in Canada of a Chinese tech executive, saying the issues are not “morally similar” in any respect. Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor have been held in China since shortly after Canada arrested Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou at the request of American authorities. Meng is awaiting extradition to the U.S. to face allegations of fraud in violating Iran sanctions. China said Thursday that the fate of the two Canadians, and the increasing difficulties in China-Canada relations, is Canada’s fault and linked to Meng’s detention. At a press conference in Ottawa, Pompeo said China’s arbitrary detention of the two Canadians was “fundamentally different as a human rights matter, as a rule of law matter” than Meng’s extradition case. “These are fundamentally different matters than the Canadian decision to use their due process and the rule of law to behave in a way that’s deeply consistent with the way decent nations work,” Pompeo said. Connecting the two issues is “what China wants to talk about,” he said. “They want to talk about these two as if they are equivalent, as if they’re morally similar, which they fundamentally are not.” He said U.S. President Donald Trump made “unambiguous” his country’s concern about China’s “inappropriate behaviour” in a recent meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. He added that American officials have made the case to Chinese counterparts and engaged in “other diplomatic activity” to make the case for Kovrig and Spavor. “And we’ll continue

to do that until such time as they’re home and returned to their families.” Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said any decisions about Meng’s case would be left to civil servants and the criminal justice system as it ought to be. Meng’s future, Freeland said, would not be a political decision. Questions about China loomed over

Pompeo’s first official visit to Ottawa as Trump’s top diplomat. China was on the agenda when he met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, one of a number of hotbutton issues the two discussed ahead of the upcoming G7 summit this weekend. Trudeau thanked the U.S. for its support in working on the release of Spavor and Kovrig during brief

remarks ahead of the closed-door meeting, and said he looked forward to discussions about how they could move ahead with getting the two men released. Canada and the U.S. are locked in differing battles with Beijing — the Americans over trade issues, primarily, while Canada is in a diplomatic dance over Kovrig, Spavor and China’s decision to

block imports of some Canadian agricultural products. The Trudeau Liberals and the Chinese government have traded escalating jabs since Canada’s joint statement with the European Union on the current unrest in Hong Kong over the weekend. The Chinese government has effectively told Canada to butt out, and that its inter-

nal affairs are none of Canada’s business. Trudeau fired back Wednesday during a speech on foreign policy where he emphasized Canada wasn’t going to back down, not on the case of Kovrig and Spavor, and not on the need to safeguard the human rights and freedoms of the 300,000 Canadians in Hong Kong and the rest of the people there.

The war of words continued Thursday when a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson responded. “Loudness is not necessarily persuasive and people can tell right from wrong,” said Geng Shuang, according to an English transcript of a news conference published online. Shuang urged Canada to take China’s concerns seriously and release Wanzhou.

All avenues for peace in Venezuela must be explored: Freeland STEPHANIE LEVITZ

CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland will head to Cuba next week for more talks with her counterpart there on the situation in Venezuela. Freeland made the announcement following a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Ottawa on Thursday, where the deepening political

and economic crisis in the South American country was on the agenda. Canada and the U.S. are seeking the end of a months-long democratic deadlock in the country that revolves around who rightfully occupies the presidency; incumbent Nicolas Maduro’s 2018 victory was dismissed by many countries as illegitimate, with his rival Juan Guaido accepted as the actual victor.

The stalemate has seen the economy of Venezuela plunge further off a cliff, with widespread food and drug shortages among the issues prompting millions of Venezuelans to flee to neighbouring countries. How best to resolve the crisis is an ongoing point of debate between Canada and the U.S., with the potential role of Cuba as one irritant. The Trump administration views Cuba as a negative

influence, while Canada believes the country could help engineer a solution that would see a peaceful transition to full democracy. Another point of differentiation is the role of sanctions. Last week, U.S. President Donald Trump froze all Venezuelan government assets in his country, a massive ratcheting up of economic pressure. Freeland suggested Thursday that Canada was not going to fol-

low suit and tighten its own sanctions regime. She said Canada is instead continuing its work with the Lima Group, a coalition of regional countries that have been working together since 2017 to support Guaido. “We have very strong sanctions in place against the Maduro regime and we also believe that it is important to explore all possible paths to a resolution of the situation,” Freeland said.

NATIIONAL NEWS & GLOBAL VIEWS

DYER: GREENLAND’S GAMBLE

F

rom his purchase of New Jersey casinos to his proposed acquisition of Greenland, U.S. President Donald Trump’s real estate deals have always been plagued by bad timing. The United States could probably have bought Greenland from Denmark in 1917 (when it did buy the U.S. Virgin Islands from the Danes), but he’s a century too late now. Nevertheless, Trump’s latest bad idea does give us an incentive to catch up with what’s been happening in Greenland — and it’s quite interesting. Trump may not know this, since he rarely reads intelligence reports, but in November 2017, Greenland’s premier, Kim Kielsen, led a government delegation to Beijing to seek Chinese investment. Greenland, the world’s biggest island, is not yet fully independent, but it is autonomous from Denmark in everything except foreign affairs and defence. Kielsen was looking mainly for Chinese investment in mining enterprises, but he was also interested in attracting a Chinese bid to build three modern airports in the island, which currently depends on Second World War-era airstrips. This set off a security panic in NATO, involving implausible nightmare visions about Greenland getting so deep in debt to Chinese banks that it would end up letting China (which has comically declared itself a “near-Arctic nation”) operate military aircraft from those airports. The U.S. military, which has a large air base at Thule in northern Greenland, then took fright. Washington strongly urged the Danish government, which provides twothirds of Greenland’s budget revenue, to nip this threat in the bud. Copenhagen had previously refused to fund the new Greenland airports, but late last year it suddenly came up

GWYNNE DYER World

WATCH with very low-interest loans for them. End of panic. By then, Kielsen’s government in the tiny capital of Nuuk (population 17,000) had collapsed, but his Siumut Party came out ahead in the election last April and he is back in power. And the issue of Chinese mines in Greenland is still on the table. In fact, there already is one in southern Greenland, producing uranium and rare earths for a ChineseAustralian consortium. Other projects potentially involving Chinese capital (and Chinese workers) are under discussion, including a huge open-cast ironore mine near Nuuk, a zinc mine in the north and both offshore and onshore oil and gas leases. For the 56,000 Greenlanders, 90 per cent of whom are Inuit, the geostrategic implications of Chinese investment are irrelevant — and they are probably right about that. What worries them, and occupies a central place in Greenlandic politics, is the cultural and social implications of foreign investment by anybody, Chinese or not. The Greenland Inuit are one of the few indigenous societies in the world that has full or almost full control over its own destiny, but the impact of the modern world on their traditional culture has been as destructive as it was for all the others: depression and other psychological illnesses, rampant alcoholism and drug use and an epidemic of suicides. So they face a choice. Do they go on trying to preserve what is left of the old Arctic

hunting and fishing culture, although it’s already so damaged and discouraged that it has the highest suicide rate on the planet? Or do they seek salvation in full modernization through high-speed economic growth, while keeping their language and what they can of their culture? What’s remarkable about Greenlandic politics is how aware the players are of their dilemma and their options. “If you want to become rich, it comes at a price,” said Aqqaluk Lynge, one of the founders of the Inuit Ataqatigiit (Community of the People) Party that ran the government until 2013. Lynge and many others didn’t want to pay that price and, under the Inuit Ataqatigiit administration, all mining was banned in Greenland. Quite apart from the environmental costs of large-scale mining operations, they believed the many thousands of foreign workers they would bring in would have a devastating impact on the already very fragile Greenlandic culture. The decision was made in 2013, when the Siumut Party took power. It believes that modernization has gone too far to turn back now. Better to gamble on solving the current huge social problems by enabling

everybody to live fully modern, prosperous lives. If you’re no longer marginalized and poverty-stricken, you’ll feel better about yourself. As Aleqa Hammond, Kielsen’s predecessor as premier, said in 2014: “The shock will be profound, but we have faced colonization, epidemics and modernization before. The decisions we are making [to open the country up to mining and oil drilling] will have enormous impact on lifestyles and our indigenous culture. But we always come out on top. We are vulnerable, but we know how to adapt.” Let us hope so, but the die is cast. Greenland will modernize and, in due course, we will find out if that helps. It makes little difference to Greenlanders whether the foreign investment comes from Denmark, China or the United States, so long as they have political control — but they certainly don’t want to become Americans. Trump’s proposed Greenland Purchase is not going to happen. As Soren Espersen, foreign affairs spokesman of the Danish People’s Party, said last week: “If he [Trump] is truly contemplating this, then this is final proof that he has gone mad.” Gwynne Dyer’s new book is Growing Pains: The Future of Democracy (and Work).

Report: Canada’s climate plan not enough, G7 must do more MIA RABSON

CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The wealthiest countries in the world — including Canada — are lagging instead of leading in the fight against global warming, a new report says. The Climate Action Network, a global association of more than 1,300 climate groups, issued a report card on the climate plans of the G7 nations ahead of the leaders’ summit in France this weekend. The groups hope to pressure the world’s wealthiest nations to step up their climate game, noting none of them is doing enough. There is also a hope expressed in the report that the upcoming federal election in Canada might stimulate more ambitious action. Canada, the report says, is among the worst of the already bad G7 bunch. “It’s depressing,” said Catherine Abreu, executive director of Climate Action Network Canada. “The richest countries in the world are delivering the poorest performance and some of the smallest and poorest are leading the way.” The report card says Canada’s current policies are consistent with global warming exceeding 4 C compared to pre-industrial levels, more than twice the stated goal of the

Paris agreement of staying as close to 1.5 C as possible. The United States and Japan are also both in the 4 C category, while the other four G7 members, France, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom, have policies consistent with more than 3 C in warming. A spokeswoman for Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Canada is leading internationally with its initiative to wean the world off coal power, and financing projects in developing nations to mitigate or adapt to climate change. “Over the past three and a half years, our government has delivered on an ambitious, affordable plan that is doing more to cut carbon pollution than any other federal government in Canada’s history,” Sabrina Kim said in a written statement. But the Climate Action Network ranks Canada’s climate plan as having the same impact on global warming as the policies of the United States, where President Donald Trump has rejected the Paris agreement. The report applauds Canada’s plan to eliminate coal as a source of electricity by 2030, the national price on pollution and the goal to stop selling combustion-engine cars by 2040. But it says all of the government plans “remain insufficient to meet Canada’s targets and the Paris Agreement.”

FRIDAY | AUG. 23, 2019

JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

welve-year-old Ben McDougall has music inside him. It comes out all day long, via instrumental outbursts, detailed factoids that rival Wikipedia articles and during the Hardkore Punk Projekt, his metal-punk-rock radio show that airs Fridays at 7 p.m. on CFBX, the radio station at Thompson Rivers University that can be heard throughout Kamloops at 92.5 on the FM dial and online at thex.ca. Ben is the youngest person to host a radio show in the campus station’s history and is likely among the youngest in the country. He also has high-functioning autism. “It’s not stressful, let me tell you,” Ben said of being on air. He got his start in radio at the suggestion of those at his school, Insight Support Services, which teaches kids with disabilities. Staff recommended he get behind a microphone based on his voice and breadth of musical knowledge. Metal is his favourite because, he said, “It’s fast, it’s aggressive and it’s all that in your face.” Ask about his favourite metal band Mudvayne and you’ll get a history lesson: the band’s origin (Los Angeles), date it formed (1996), debut album and launch (L.D. 50 in 2000) and a detailed discography limited only by one’s time in the day. “Researching stuff is better than painting your face white, spiking your hair, dying it purple, wearing an apron with bloody handprints on it and calling yourself Cud,” Ben said. A tour of the Broadcast Centre on Columbia Street led to guest radio appearances. KTW readers may have also heard Ben on 98.3 CIFM’s morning show, where he has opened up about autism. “It affects our brain,” he told KTW. “Like, we can respond inappropriately in social situations. And we get confused. We can get confused, as well. And it’s hard to make friends. It’s also traumatic for

Autism hasn’t kept the young broadcaster off the airwaves at CFBX — or elsewhere

kamloopsthisweek

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

Ben McDougall is one, likely among few, of the youngest radio hosts in the country at 12 years old. His show, The Hardkore Punk Projekt, airs at 7 p.m. on Fridays on campus community radio station CFBX, 92.5 on the FM dial.

us to have blood taken. So that’s why, Life Labs, they get people with autism sedated to get their blood taken. I have heightened senses. I can hear somebody having a conversation on the other side of a closed door. And I feel a lot more pain. That’s why it’s traumatic for us to have blood taken.” Living in a home filled with music — guitars, drums, ukulele and non-stop radio in the background — mom Crystal said: “I think it’s great for our kids on the spectrum to have a way out and he finds his through music. It’s fantastic.” Autism hasn’t kept Ben off the airwaves and it didn’t take long before he wanted his own show. Since May, he has hosted The Hardkore Punk Projekt on Friday nights. Sent out on the airwaves from upstairs in House 8 at Thompson Rivers University, Ben’s papa (dad) Andy supervises, as required by station policy for minors.

Andy also helps balance Canadian content rules and reaches out to bands. There’s been the odd hiccup, like a skipping scratched CD on air, but the shows have otherwise gone smoothly. With nearly 20 radio appearances at CFBX under their belts, Andy has watched Ben grow during his time on the air. “It’s getting him out there,” Andy said. “He’s able to speak now, easy. He’s grown so much. It’s huge for him. His confidence just went crazy. He can sit and speak to any adult, as you can see. But he can’t converse with kids his own age.” The pair was downstairs in the station’s music library when KTW visited, with Ben showing off 15,000 rock and 2,220 metal albums/CDs, which line the walls in the station’s collection. The expansive and eclectic music library is the best part of having his own show, Ben said, noting it has none of that commercial “crap.”

Aug. 31 & Sept. 1, 2019 NV Rodeo Grounds • Merritt, BC

TUNE IN:

The Hardcore Punk Projekt airs on CFBX at 7 p.m. on Fridays. Listen on the dial at 92.5 FM or stream it live online at thex.ca.

As part of the gig, hosts are required to maintain the library, meaning hours spent immersed in music. Elymor Villanueva, host of A Warm Welcome, which airs on CFBX on Mondays from noon to 1 p.m, was also among the jewel cases. The 20-year-old computing science student said he couldn’t imagine having a radio show at Ben’s age. “I think it’s pretty cool,” Villanueva said. “Because I wouldn’t have done that at his age. I would have done something

more boring, I guess — playing video games or just going outside.” Though Ben is not the youngest radio show host in Canada — that title was quashed when KTW tracked down eight-year-old Ayla Rehman, who has a show in Ontario with her siblings called The Youngest Canadian Radio Show Hosts airing weekly on Radio Waterloo 102.7 CKMS — CFBX station manager Brant Zwicker said Ben is the youngest radio host in the station’s 22-year history. High school students have hosted in the past, but Ben has a good four years on any of them.. “I was stunned the first time I heard his show,” Zwicker said. “He’s very confident and he really, really knows his stuff. Details about the artists and the albums. That’s what I remember as a young radio guy — who played bass in that band was really important, that kind of stuff. Factoids, useless information. In that sense, he’s a natural.”

Secwepemc Matriarch in front of the lens Documentary will profile the remarkable life of Muriel Sasakamoose TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

M

uriel Sasakamoose has lived what many would call a remarkable life. She was the first Indigenous woman to attend public school in Kamloops. She was the first Indigenous woman to be elected to the Royal Inland Hospital board. She was the first Indigenous woman to run a provincial and federal election. She is the last living founding member of the BC Native Women’s Association. Now, thanks to grant money from Telus Storyhive, Sasakamoose will be the subject of a documentary produced by local filmmaker Nolan McAllister and his company, Alpha-Omega Productions. “I was really surprised when I heard,” Sasakamoose told KTW. “I thought I just lived an ordinary life. I didn’t think it was anything outstanding.” McAllister disagreed and, after filming a short interview with Sasakamoose, he produced a short video to submit to Telus Storyhive, in the hopes of getting

some funding to produce the film. The $50,000 he received from Storyhive was topped up with an additional $5,000 from Creative BC. The documentary will be called Kind Heart and Secwepemc Matriarch. The funding approval came as a surprise for both documentarian and subject. McAllister slept in on the morning of the announcement and missed several phone calls from Storyhive before finally getting word of the funding. Sasakamoose and McAllister both hope the film will prove to be inspiring to those who see it. “That’s what we want to share in the film,” McAllister said. “Create an inspirational film to inspire Indigenous youth, but also Indigenous women.” McAllister has been in business since 2012, but he has been interested in film since he was a child. After taking some acting lessons, he realized he would rather be behind the camera than in front of it and studied technical theatre and visual arts at Thompson Rivers University. McAllister has worked on productions in various cities, includ-

ing Kamloops, Vancouver and Kelowna. “My goal is to work in the film industry as a director of photography,” he said. “I don’t think these kinds of opportunities happen all the time, so it’s a huge step for my career as a filmmaker.” McAllister said the reality of the situation has yet to truly sink in, noting it probably won’t until they actually start work on the project. Before that can happen, he will need to participate in a webinar and head to Vancouver in September for hands-on training with the Telus team. Along with the Storyhive people — including a Telus representative of Indigenous decent — McAllister will be working with a mentor from the National Screen Institute. While Sasakamoose is excited to have the opportunity to share the story of her life’s successes, she thinks her finest work is from a little closer to home. “I think my greatest accomplishment is my immediate family,” she said. “I think, when I look at my life, it’s my kids and my grandchildren.”

trio of comedians will soon set out on a 22-day tour to raise money for non-profits in each community they visit. The Human Condition Comedy Tour will trek across Western Canada, including a stop in Kamloops on Thursday, Sept. 12, at Cactus Jack’s Nightclub. Comedian Scott Porteous said he’s been organizing the tour for about a year and a half now and spoke to KTW ahead of the opening Sept. 2 show in Camrose, Alta. “We love doing comedy, we love to travel, and if we can help someone else in the process, even better. More than anything, we just want to do what we love,” he said. All but two of the 22 dates on the tour will support a local nonprofit. In Kamloops’ case, that organization is People in Motion.

New local tunes out Friday KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Two local bands have new releases coming out Friday. Mother Sun will release its debut album, Caramel Clouds, following the trickle-out release of five songs, two last year and three this year. The band, which formed in 2017, is comprised of local musicians Jared Doherty (guitar and vocals), Emilio Pagnotta (guitar and vocals), Alex Ward (organ and keys) and Jared Wilman (drums and vocals). The band has been working on

the album for about a year and a half, and recorded with Felix Fung of Little Red Sound Studio in Vancouver. Find the album on Spotify or the band’s Bandcamp page at mothersunmusic.bandcamp.com. The Houses (Where We Grew Up) will also release new music on Friday. The band’s new single is called Killer — the follow-up to their debut album, Dying, released in February this year. Find the album on streaming services online at linktr.ee/ TheHousesWWGU.

“There are a lot of charities out there who get big cheques all the time, but I think there are smaller groups who don’t always see those results. People in Motion got a hold of us and told us their story and we came onboard for their cause,” Porteous said. Porteous, 36, has been doing comedy for 16 years. On tour, he’ll be joined by Frank Russo, a young Toronto-based comedian “who is probably one of the hardest working people I’ve ever got to know,” Porteous said, and Shawn Gramiak, “an older gentleman, a veteran comic from Edmonton who is a very good storyteller.” The trio will venture as far east as Winnipeg, but most of its dates are in B.C. and Alberta, wrapping up in Edmonton on Sept. 30.

wenty-three years ago, Janet Walmsley’s daughter, Jenny Story, was diagnosed with low-functioning autism. Doctors said she might never even speak. Story is now 26, a graduate of Vancouver Film School, a professional animator and the author of the young adult novel Dysnomia, the first of a planned trilogy. “Jenny is now extremely highfunctioning,” Walmsley said. “She can talk and she’s very sociable.” But Story isn’t the only writer in the family. Walmsley took the story of the family’s experiences, challenges and successes and turned it into the book The Autistic Author and Animator. “My book is non-fiction,” Walmsley said. “It all involves my

daughter’s journey through life with autism, through my eyes. Readers say it’s very engaging.” The mother-daughter author duo will be at the Kamloops Chapters store this Saturday for a book signing from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Dysnomia is about a young woman named Layla who sets out to prove she is capable of doing anything, especially whatever a man can do. The next book in Story’s series will be released next year. Story was a natural storyteller from an early age, with both students and teachers encouraging her work. “Jenny’s writing teacher had come up to me in the last couple of years in high school and she said, ‘Your daughter has to publish this as a book,’” Walmsley said. There has been some inter-

est in turning Dysnomia into an animated film and Walmsley has been in talks to have her non-fiction book adapted into a documentary. Walmsley wrote her book for the general public in order to shine a positive light on autism. “There’s no barrier to success or fulfilment with it,” she said. Walmsley said there have been ups and downs through their experiences, noting her daughter navigated the trenches of bullying, but eventually graduated Grade 12 with honours before attending Vancouver Film School to learn 2D and 3D animation. “She’s a miracle, but it was hard work,” Walmsley said. “It’s been a beautiful journey.” The Kamloops Chapters store is located in the Aberdeen Village mall, at Hillside Drive and Pacific Way.

Conan late-night gag features Vancouver’s Property Brothers CANADIAN PRESS

Conan O’Brien has turned to real estate experts the Property Brothers for insight on whether the United States should purchase Greenland. The B.C.-bred siblings were featured in a late-night bit in which O’Brien expressed support for U.S. President Donald Trump’s interest in the resourcerich Nordic region. In the segment, O’Brien calls HGTV stars Drew and Jonathan Scott to discuss the scheme. Real estate expert Drew Scott notes that neighbours Canada and Iceland “are both pretty

quiet,” while construction expert Jonathan Scott suggests removing glaciers and mountains to bring in “more natural light” and “make it feel a lot bigger.” The autonomous territory is owned by the Scandinavian country of Denmark. Trump has confirmed reports that he was interested in buying Greenland, an idea that Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen dismissed as “absurd.” In the bit, O’Brien says he would travel to Greenland as part of his Conan Without Borders segment to see whether it was worth buying. A spokesperson for the

Property Brothers said Thursday that the twins were not scheduled to appear in more Conan segments, but that they were set to appear next year on Apple’s Carpool Karaoke, the streaming spinoff of the popular late-night bit on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden. The segment was shot recently in Los Angeles alongside sisters and actresses Emily and Zooey Deschanel. The Scott brothers specialize in finding undervalued real estate gems and turning dated properties into dream homes. Conan airs late nights Monday to Thursday on CTV.

Waltzing with Mozart in Vienna and Salzburg RAY CHATELIN

SPECIAL TO KTW

travelwriterstales.com

I

f you want to know Mozart the man, then it stands to reason you have to eventually come to grips with Salzburg and Vienna. It’s the only way you’ll ever discover what made the man tick and why his music endures. For, when you walk in his footsteps, as I have over the years, you’ll understand more about him, the times that influenced his music and the two spectacular cities that he called home. Austria is arguably the world’s most user-friendly country. If you can’t like Austria, you might as well stay home because you won’t like being anywhere. Outside the major cities is an endless abundance of cows and barns, many of which have small cozy homes attached to the front. Tiny mountain roads run very close to the edge of eternity and plenty of towns and villages have wooden churches, all with tall spires. It’s this sense of place and size that was instilled in Mozart at an early age — a view of the world he couldn’t have rejected in his own music had he had wanted to. Once the heart and soul of Europe’s greatest power, Vienna is now arguably the world’s largest and most charming museum. In tracing Mozart’s 10 years living in Vienna (1781-1791), you begin at St. Stephen’s cathedral, which began construction in the 11th century and completed in 1433. Its 137-metre-high tower remains the city’s landmark. It was where five of his six children were baptized, following his marriage to Constanze Weber. It is also where Mozart earned a living, at times, as assistant Kapellmeister (conductor). The small chapel to the left of the entrance is where his funeral was held.

AUSTRIA TOURIST BOARD PHOTO One visit to Salzburg’s Old Town is all it takes to realize that the city incorporates the very best of Austria, into one pretty little package. Sprawling mountain views, ornate baroque architecture, pretty palaces, bustling market squares and of course, the music of Mozart, all make Salzburg one of Austria’s top tourist destinations.

The old Vienna in which Mozart lived can be seen by taking the elevator to the observation platform in the North Tower. Looking down on the courtyards, streets and shops in the old city, you’ll see Mozart’s town. Behind St. Stephen’s, at 5 Domgasse, is Figaro House — the grandest of the 13 residences in which Mozart lived. It may seem like a lot of homes, but the figure pales when compared to the 50-odd apartments in which the cantankerous Ludwig Beethoven eventually lived. It was in this apartment that Mozart composed feverishly, creating works, which included 11 piano concertos and his opera, The Marriage of Figaro.

Considering Mozart hated Salzburg and that after he left for Vienna, he returned as few times as possible, the city fathers have been downright forgiving. Today in Salzburg, Mozart is nearly everything — though many visit to explore picturesque sites where The Sound of Music was filmed. Take a city tour and you’ll find that actress Julie Andrews and Mozart meet often. The ghost of Mozart stalks every corridor, every alleyway and every intimate concert venue. For a taste of the way Mozart might have heard and played his own music, head for Mirabell Palace, where chamber concerts are held throughout the year in the ornate, intimate surroundings of a concert hall.

In Mozart’s time, the city was a commercial centre named for its extensive salt mines. It had little in the way of cultural activity compared to Vienna — the reason why Mozart left. His Geburtshaus (birth house) dominates the inner city. Then, like now, the area was a narrow lane of shops in the town centre. His apartment is a museum, of course, and undoubtedly the busiest place in town. Both Wolfgang (christened Johannes Chrysotomus Wolfgangus Theophilus) and his sister Maria Anna, nicknamed Nannerl, were born at the Getreidegasse apartment, though the family later moved across the River Salzach to a larger place at No. 8 Markartplatz.

Take a break from the history lesson and stop off at one of Wolfgang’s watering holes, the Sternbrau at 34 Greisgasse, where he was a regular patron when he was old enough. The Stiftskeller St. Peter is one of Salzburg’s famous eating and wine spots — a direct lineage from when monks at St. Peter’s Monastery worked their own huge wine cellar and began selling food and wine in the 17th century. It’s understood that both Wolfgang and Johann Michael Haydn each tipped a few there. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper syndicate.

Hioms to brave Alps in ‘pinnacle’ race MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Phil and Grace Hiom, along with dog Pickles, were found last week in Kenna Cartwright Park, a fitting location for an interview ahead of the race of a lifetime. The Kamloops couple, who have since flown to Europe, have been training in Kenna and many places like it for about eight months, putting in work to make sure they are ready for the Courmayer Champex Chamonix

(CCC), a 101-kilometre race that takes runners through the Alps of Italy and Switzerland and into France. “Just the atmosphere, the Alps, the mountains, the people … it’s one of the races that’s hard to get into, like the pinnacle trailmountain-running race you can get into,” said Grace, who runs the Dirty Feet Trail Series, along with Phil. “I’ve always wanted to run in the Alps. It’s going to be amazing to go and see what this has to offer.”

Entrants must finish the race, which begins on Aug. 30 and is part of the Ultra-Trail du MontBlanc series, in less than 26 hours and 30 minutes. The Hioms have this year traversed about 1,700 kilometres of trail and done more than 65,000 metres of climbing, the training they hope will allow them to finish in less than 24 hours, an accomplishment that would grant access to another of their bucket-list events, the Western States 100Mile Endurance Run.

Sport and Performance and flexibility and breathing at Oxygen Yoga has been part of the routine designed to help the Hioms handle about 6,100 metres of elevation gain and 6,300 metres of elevation loss during the CCC. “We knew when we started that this was going to consume the next eight months of our lives,” Phil said, noting balancing work and training has been a challenge. “It’s also really affected anything else we can do. We haven’t really done anything other than training.”

The sacrifices, Phil said, should be worth it. “They get thousands and thousands of people out to cheer. Apparently, the first 15 K is just lined with people up the mountains,” he said. “They hang out and cheer and smack you on the butt when you go by and yell at you. “It’s very much an atmosphere that’s created — and the finish line in Chamonix is pretty much the pinnacle of that.” See SEND, A32

Bhatti said The Cabin Group, a treatment centre in Thailand, has offered to provide two treatment stints, worth about $40,000 each, to anyone willing to get help for trauma. “They can send us their story by email,” said Bhatti, who runs Andy Bhatti Interventions and Addiction Services. “They don’t have to be an addict, just 100 per cent willing to accept help. Some sur-

vivors of sexual abuse are not full-on alcoholics or drug addicts.” Applicants are asked to reach out to Bhatti prior to the event through his website, andybhatti.com, or by emailing support@ andybhatti.com. Sittler, Bichette and Fleury will be available to sign autographs for $20. All proceeds from the signings will go toward flights and other necessities for the two chosen clients’ trips to Thailand. The flight leaves Vancouver on Sept. 8. Applicants must have required identification for flights abroad. Bhatti, a former heroin addict and winner in the addiction category at the 2015 Courage to Come Back Awards, said he is donating memorabilia from his personal collection that will be auctioned off to help pay for the treatment trips.

CRIMES OF THE WEEK SHOTS Thief grabbed the goods — and booted it

On Saturday, Aug. 17, a First Nations man in his mid-20s stole a pair of work boots from a local merchant. At the time of the theft, the shoplifter was wearing a blue hoodie, AILANAK, jeans and white shoes and was riding a Willie Junior BMX bike. DOB: 1986-06-16 Height: 176 cm / 5’10” If you recognize him, call Crime Weight: 80 kg / 177 lbs Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

CAN THEY GET OFF THE SCHNEID?

The Kamloops Broncos and Valley Huskers of Chilliwack have been outmatched this season, both sitting at 0-3 and tied in the B.C. Football Conference basement. Both teams will be anxious to win when they clash this Saturday at Hillside Stadium. Game time is 6 p.m. Broncos’ defensive lineman Damian Person is pictured trying to get off a block against the Langley Rams earlier this month at Hillside Stadium.

CO-ED WORLD SERIES TO FEATURE $10,000 FINAL From A30

He said memorabilia includes hockey jerseys signed by Sittler, Fleury, Sidney Crosby, Pavel Bure, Wendel Clark and Chris Pronger; NFL helmets signed by Rob Gronkowski, Sony Michel, Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen and Ricky Williams; baseball memorabilia signed by Ted Williams and Wade Boggs; baseball cards signed by Jose Canseco and photos signed by Al Pacino, Jimmy Hart, Jake the Snake Roberts and Kelly Gruber. “It’s only stuff,” Bhatti said. “Peoples’ lives are more important.” The auction will run on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. Bhatti will be speaking to families for free on Aug. 31 — along with Cabin Group therapist Mike Miller — at the Andy Bhatti Interventions and Trauma booth, at which brochures will be available for those seeking help. This year’s edition of the Co-Ed World Series will feature 127 teams playing on diamonds across the city, up from 84 teams last year and 72 squads in 2017. Mike Colistro, NSA Canada director for Kamloops and area, began listing names of cities that will be represented. He went on and on and on, then kept going some more, his point being the tournament, which has perhaps slid under the radar, is a big deal. “This is probably the biggest sporting event in town now,” Colistro said. “The economic

impact is enormous.” Diamonds at the Tournament Capital Ranch, Charles Anderson Park, Albert McGowan Park and Pacific Way Park will be bustling throughout the weekend. “We actually ran out of fields,” Colistro said. “Registration just exploded two weeks ago. I don’t know what happened.” The top-flight open division will feature high-quality ball and its final will be the main event of competitive play, with $10,000 up for grabs for the winner in the championship game on Sept. 1. First pitch is slated that day for 7 p.m. on Diamond 1 at the Ranch. “I would say it rivals the KIBIHT [Kamloops International Bantam Ice Hockey Tournament] final,” Colistro said. “That’s how many people were there last year.” The majority of the teams signed up to play are from B.C., but Alberta will be well-represented, a few squads from Saskatchewan will make the trip and the NL Rage from St. John’s will make the crosscountry trek. Colistro said great facilities are a big reason why the tournament is growing. “There were some young kids who came last year. You should have see their faces,” Colistro said. “It was about 9:30 p.m. I think they were from Alberta. They were looking like they were at a major league ballpark. “The lights were all on. One kid, he just ran out there. He just wanted to see what it felt like.”

On Monday, Aug. 19, at about 3 p.m., a man stole two baskets full of food from a grocery store, walking out the doors with one basket in his hand the other being dragged along the ground. At the time of the theft, the man was wearing a black shirt, black pants, black shoes and a black and yellow hat carrying a pair of sunglasses with blueish lenses. Can you identify this man? If so, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS (8477).

Send videos to Hioms on Alps From A29

Extreme winds, snow, hail and freezing rain can be among obstacles. Knowing what to carry is a challenge, with no outside support for the first 55 kilometres of the race. Eating is done mostly on the run. Bathroom breaks are often conducted in nature. Jockeying with hundreds of runners near the start line can be hazardous. Failing to finish the race in the allotted time would be a stinging blow. Phil, who is faster on climbs, and Grace, quicker on descents, will not stick together throughout the race, but may meet up close to the finish line. Encouragement from back home is welcomed and can be provided in videos they can watch during the race. Short clips can be uploaded for free at

crosscall.com/en/ utmb-all-supporters-2019. Use bib numbers — Grace, 3803, and Phil, 4651 — to check in with them in the Alps. Runners will hit the trail at about 1 a.m. Kamloops time on Aug. 30. Follow progress live using bib numbers or last names at utmbmontblanc.com/en/ page/363/follow-theraces.html. Usually quiet mountain towns blow up into frenetic international hubs, with about 100 countries expected to be represented in the races. There will be about 1,900 runners in action, each of whom had to complete gruelling qualifying races just to be entered into a Jan. 10 lottery, with no guarantees their names would be drawn. Phil and Grace were among the lucky ones who earned access to the CCC. “It was a lot of dis-

WOLFPACK SOCCER TEAMS OUT OF PROVINCE Both TRU WolfPack soccer teams are on the road, continuing preparations for the 2019 U Sports campaign. The men began their pre-season excursion to California with a 2-1 victory over the Apple Valley Storm on Tuesday in Fresno. Justin Donaldson and James Fraser netted goals for TRU, which played NCAA Division 2 Fresno Pacific on Thursday after KTW’s press deadline. The WolfPack women will finish pre-season play with two matches in Saskatchewan this weekend — against the Saskatchewan Huskies on Friday and Winnipeg Wesmen on Saturday. TRU’s women were 3-0 in exhibition play heading into a match against hometown Regina, played after press deadline on Thursday, but had not yet encountered a Canada West opponent. The Pack’s victories came against the Capilano Blues, an under-16 boys team from Kamloops and the Penticton Pinnacles. Match 1 of the regular season for the Pack women is slated for Sept. 5, when they tackle the UNBC Timberwolves in Prince George. The TRU men were 4-0 in the pre-season as of press deadline, with victories over the UBC Okanagan Heat, Langara College Falcons, UNBC and Apple Valley. Regular season action gets underway for the men on Aug. 31, when the UBC Thunderbirds come to town. Kickoff is 1 p.m. PRAIRIE RECRUIT Hadley Schmidt of Saskatoon has verbally committed to play for the TRU WolfPack women’s volleyball team. The 5-foot-10 setter is expected to join the Pack in time for the 2020-2021 Canada West season. “I loved the hometown feeling as soon as I arrived in Kamloops,” said Schmidt, who has played for her province and the Sask Stealth club program. “When I practised with the team, I loved the family feeling and the way the girls welcomed me with open arms.” WolfPack head coach Chad Grimm said Schmidt, the first TRU women’s volleyball recruit from Saskatchewan in more than a decade, is part of the team’s succession plan at setter. “We have Anastasiya [Muzyka] and Abby [Spratt] back-to-back years, but they will leave us at some point,” Grimm said.

Quotes from camp MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Training camp is underway for the Kamloops Blazers. Practices will run from 8 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and games from 4 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. from Friday to Saturday. Camp will conclude on Sunday with the Blazers’ Cup bronze-medal game, an 8:30 a.m. start, and goldmedal game, a 10:30 a.m. puckdrop. All sessions are open to the public and free to attend at Sandman Centre. Here’s what they’re saying: Dylan Garand on entering season as starting netminder: “It’s definitely a bit different than last year. When I came in, I didn’t know if I was even going to be here. Being here and knowing there’s a good chance to be the guy, it’s a good feeling. But at the same time, I understand there is a tonne of work to be done and Rammer [Rayce Ramsay] is going to push me this year. I have to stay sharp and put in the work from Day 1.” Connor Zary on potential of being first Kamloops Blazer selected in Round 1 of NHL Draft since Keaton Ellerby went 10th overall to the

Florida Panthers in 2007: “I just try not to think about it. Obviously, it’s in the back of my mind. It’s a big year. I’m just trying to focus more on the team. There is talk. I just want to play hockey and have fun. That’s why I’m here. The NHL is obviously my dream, but I’m just having fun. That’s about all I can say.” Head coach Shaun Clouston on his feel for what expectations are for the 2019-2020 Blazers: “I think management believes it’s going to be a real good team. The expectation is playoffs. I think it’s a real good division, so we’re going to have some great competition.”

God is without beginning or end — always

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 demon-possessed ... 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 wrote, “At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus 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 that 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 the 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 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. 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 in 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 fulfillment 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 a true follower 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.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Joseph “Aime” Klyne

Jim Hazell

March 6, 1927 - August 8, 2019

February 1, 1938 – August 12, 2019

Wrinkles and lines do not define The age of the spirit So many moments in time are Imprinted in our minds Forever we will feel it.

By Chelsea Lee, written August 2019 for her Papa With sadness, we announce the passing of James (Jim) Hazell in Kamloops, BC at the age of 92 of natural causes. Jim was born in Vancouver on March 6, 1927, married Margaret Elizabeth Thompson in 1948 (predeceased in 2003) with whom he had two children Daniel James Hazell (currently in Kamloops) and Diane Gail Lee (Hazell) (currently in South Surrey). He is immediately survived by his two children Dan and Diane, their spouses Lilah Hazell and Tom Lee, his grandchildren Richard James Hazell, Sherry Diane Hazell (Troy Wurm), Michael William Lee (Jill Dunn) and Chelsea Nicole Lee (James Colley). Jim was an avid athlete in his youth and never afraid to take a risk. He married young at 21, started his own construction company in Vancouver in the 1950s and when the market slowed, did not hesitate to pack up his young family and move to Kamloops and begin a new (1964). He successfully completed his high school graduation in his 40s, worked for the government for a while, but in a short time returned to the trade he loved, and was so good at, using his hands and building. He was able to retire at 55 and contribute to a variety of Chase, BC community committees and activities. He won several contribution awards from the Chase Lion’s Club where he lived from 1984 to 2018. After Marg’s passing in 2003, he became a companion for Rose Kent who has survived him (age 97) and together they supported each other through the challenges that come with age. In spite of advancing time, neither Jim nor Rose let their ages stop them from fishing or exploring this wonderful province. The family was able to say our good-byes at our annual family reunion at Sheridan Lake just four days before Jim died, and while hard, none of us could have asked for a more celebratory end to a well-lived life. We have so many moments with him imprinted in our minds, and much love and gratitude for all he taught us. This poem (author unknown) is ingrained in our family values, taught to Jim by his mother and passed on to all of us. If you mean to do a thing and you mean to do it really, Never let it be by halves, But do it fully, freely. Dad/Papa/Uncle Jim/Jim - your life was never by halves, always full and you are now free. There will not be a funeral, Jim will join Marg at her place of rest at the Hillside Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Chase Lions Club in memory of Jim.

On August 12, 2019 Mr. Joseph “Aime” Klyne passed away peacefully at Chartwell Retirement Residence at the age of 81.

Every Friday in KTW!

Survived by his loving daughter Linda Dawyduik (Jr. Minnabarriet), granddaughter Sherry Dawyduik (Brian Vlodder and Jaiden Dawyduik), brothers Raymond Klyne, Nelson Klyne and Ernest Klyne, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Q. Green cremation?

Predeceased by his father Julius Klyne, mother Alexina Klyne (née Lavalle), brothers Leonard Klyne and Jerry Klyne, sister Aurillia Heibert, step-sisters Eva Lavalle, Bernice Ducharme, Dora Lamirande and daughter Marnie Klyne (Jenn).

A. Frankly, the cremation process uses a lot of fuel. There’s concern over emissions from the mercury in teeth and from breast implants. Some funeral homes use OSB when building their cremation containers. That produces a chemical reaction when burned. Probably the greenest thing would be to wrap the body in cotton and bury it. But there are laws against that, too!

He was born on February 1, 1938 in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. Aime spent his early life living there until later re-locating to Kamloops, BC in the early 70s. Aime spent many hours golfing with good friends. !

Patricia “Pat” Musgrove With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving mom, gramma and great-gramma Patricia “Pat” Musgrove on Monday, August 12, 2019, 7 days short of her 93rd birthday. Mom was born on August 19, 1926 in Klistiz, Romania, landing via The Estonia in Halifax, NS August 28, 1928 with her family, eventually settling in Lavoy, AB on a farm. She lived through some difficult times during the Great Depression before moving to Chilliwack, BC with her family in the late 40s. In 1955, mom met the man of her dreams, Bob, who swept her off her feet at a wedding celebration. She had just had a disagreement with her then date, how lucky for dad and for us! They were married November 26, 1955 in Seattle, WA and settled in Victoria, BC for a few years before our dad’s work with CNR had them moving on to Terrace, BC, Peace River, AB, Hay River, NWT and then finally settling in Kamloops, BC in 1971. Mom has lived in our home since that time; we are pretty sure she was the “matriach” of the block. After 40 years working at the Coast Canadian Inn, mom finally retired at the ripe young age of 75! Mom’s passion was baking and cooking and at many family get-togethers we always joked that there was enough food to feed

Her grandaughter told her she should have opened up her own restaurant. At Christmas, she roasted the largest turkey she could find (often there were 20 guests or more) as everyone and anyone was invited and she lit up the house with lights and decorations inside and out. She was recognized in the Kamloops News for her festive lights. She loved her flowers and in summer, her yard was filled with hanging baskets and flower containers. Many a passerby would remark on mom’s flowers and how beautiful the yard looked. Before our dad passed, he would bring home a bouquet of yellow roses weekly for her. Yellow was her favourite colour. Mom was also known for her “colourful” words. If she swore at you or called you a “little sh*t”, that meant she liked you a lot. Mom was predeceased by our dad who passed away in January 2000. Mom was also predeceased by her parents and four sisters. Mom is survived and will be dearly missed by her five children Shelley (Terry), Bobbi (Al), Rick, Wayne (Krys) and Mike (Trina), seven grandchildren who loved their grammy so much Harmony (Bobby), Brayden, Brenna, Brooke (Nico), Chase, Ryan and Landon and three great-grandchildren Xavier, Phoenix and Dax. “What a ride” she shared with us shortly before her passing. When asked what was one of the best things about her ride, she shared “all my grandkids”.

We were blessed to learn many valuable life lessons from our mom during her almost 93 years, among them “if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all”, “two wrongs do not make a right” and “this too shall pass.” She loved to tell jokes and had an amazing sense of humour. She was our rock, our inspiration, the heart and soul of our family. She was there for everyone of us, always putting herself last. She was a remarkably strong and courageous woman right to the very end. She will be thought of every day and we will live our lives as she would have wanted us to. We were so blessed she was ours. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Loland for his care and compassion, to the palliative care team that came to her home and to the nurses, care aids, volunteers and staff at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice, we will always remember the care and kindness you all gave to our mom. You went above and beyond for her and we are truly grateful to you all. No service will be held at the request of our mom.

Her Journey’s Just Begun by E. Brenneman

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

Never Quit

AUTHOR UNKNOWN

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill When funds are low and debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit. Success is failure turned inside out – The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – It’s when things seem worst that You must not quit!
