The Big Little Science Centre is looking for a new home in the aftermath of last week’s Parkcrest elementary fire. BLSC executive director Gord Stewart is meeting with the school district and city, having been given word the centre, located in the old Happyvale elementary school on Holt Street in Brocklehurst, will be displaced as a result of 4 Directions moving into the space. 4 Directions, School District 73’s alternative education for Aboriginal students, is moving from George Hilliard elementary to Happyvale to accommodate Parkcrest elementary students, following a fire that gutted the school last week. Students in the Twin Rivers Education Centre, an alternate school also located in the George Hilliard building, will be moving to portables at NorKam senior secondary.

“We have to move,” Stewart said, adding a location has not yet been found. Stewart said there is talk of a few possible options, but noted everything remains up in the air. Stewart said it is a possibility the science centre could close if a new location is not secured. “We need somewhere to operate,” he said. “This is kind of short notice. We’ll have to see what we can get done as quickly as possible.” BLSC founder Gordon Gore said he would like to see the science centre at Thompson Rivers University. Gore envisions a separate building for the centre on campus, with access for teachers in training. “It would be so valuable to them,” he told KTW. Gore said the centre is most utilized by teachers and classes that participate in activities and utilize the centre’s equipment. Calling the centre a community asset, he noted it provides kids up-close, hands-on experiences with science.

A trip to the centre might include making a simple battery, playing with bugs, learning robotics or making ones hair stand on end via the popular Van de Graaff static electricity generator. “You get kids coming in on a Saturday and they don’t want to leave,” Gordon said, noting more than 100 scientific hands-on activities that can be tried. “It’s great value to the community as a whole.” Since Gore founded the science centre in February 2000, it has been located in David Thompson elementary, Bert Edwards Science and Technology School, George Hilliard elementary and Happyvale elementary. The centre leases space from the school district. Because it is not a district program, however, access is determined by space availability. “It’s trying times, but at least the little kids have a place to go to school, which is at the centre of all this,” Stewart said.

MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW Parkcrest elementary was destroyed by fire on Sept. 5, prompting the Kamloops-Thompson school district staff to work through the weekend to devise a plan to get the 360 students back in class by next week.

Just days after a massive fire destroyed Parkcrest elementary, School District 73 has unveiled where displaced students and staff will go. Beginning on Sept. 16, students of the Brocklehurst school at 2170 Parkcrest Ave. will be moved to nearby George Hilliard elementary, at 985 Holt St., which now houses the Twin Rivers Education Centre (TREC) and the 4 Directions School, two alternative education programs. The distance between Parkcrest and George Hilliard is 1.6 kilometres. TREC students will be moving to NorKam senior secondary — across from McArthur Island — where portables will be added to help accommodate NorKam students displaced by TREC kids, while 4 Directions students will move to the former Happyvale elementary at 655 Holt St., which is now home to the Big Little Science Centre. The plan was finalized over the weekend, with parents and students from all three schools being updated Sunday evening.

CLEAROUT SALES EVENT

With a student body of about 360 students moving in, George Hilliard elementary will be overcrowded in the interim as the building isn’t quite big enough to house everyone, according to Kamloops-Thompson school board chair Kathleen Karpuk. Portables will be placed on the property to alleviate that pressure, but they aren’t expected to be in place before Sept. 16. “We’re going to be waiting on portables. It’s going to take some time to get there,” Karpuk said. Until portables are in place at George Hilliard, a common room in the school will be used to house students. Parkcrest elementary had 16 classrooms, while George Hilliard has 14 classrooms. In total, 12 portables are being brought in to accommodate TREC students and Parkcrest students attending George Hilliard. SD73 secretary-treasurer Kelvin Stretch said the Ministry of Education will cover the cost of portables, which is normally a cost the school district would have to foot. Due to the loss of equipment such as desks and chairs from Parkcrest elementary, the school district will modify other

existing equipment to make do in the interim. Karpuk said the Ministry of Education also intends to supply needed resources. Sidow said she is thankful for ongoing community efforts to raise money and supplies for teachers, some of whom, she said, lost up to $10,000 worth of materials in the fire. As for the Big Little Science Centre, the facility will relocate to a yet to be determined location. “We’ve asked the Big Little Science Centre to move out as quickly as possible,” Sidow said. Until that happens, 4 Directions students will be placed at the United Way’s new office on Tranquille Road after the non-profit stepped up to offer the space in the interim. Two day cares that operate out of Happyvale will not need to be relocated for now, Sidow said. Moving TREC students to NorKam, however, has elicited criticism from members of the school communities regarding whether placing TREC students on a high school campus is the best course of action. See SD73, A11

Kamloops Mounties have confirmed the fire that destroyed Parkcrest elementary last Thursday is not believed to be arson. Police have now turned control of the scene back over to School District 73 and its associated insurance agents. “A very thorough scene investigation was completed,” Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk said. “This involved the use of heavy equipment contractors and was complemented by assistance from Kamloops Fire Rescue investigators.” Buliziuk said information provided by witnesses and firefighters — and a combination of physical evidence and known circumstances — led RCMP fire investigators to a ruling that the fire’s origin is not suspicious in nature. “This matter is a tragedy and affects many in our community; however, we are pleased to report that this tragedy was not one caused by the intentional actions of any individual,” Buliziuk said. “We wish the children and families affected by this fire the absolute best in their likely difficult transition and adaptation to new educational circumstances,” The exact cause of the fire — be it mechanical, electrical or otherwise — remains under investigation.

Blaze prompts discussion on sprinklers MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Parkcrest elementary did not have a sprinkler system — a factor that may have hindered fire suppression efforts. SD73 superintendent Alison Sidow said most of the district buildings are

between 40 and 50 years old. “You can imagine they were built in a time when all the amenities we enjoy in modern schools were not available,” said Sidow. Secretary treasurer Kelvin Stretch said a few schools per year are upgraded with amenities like sprinkler systems.

There are 26 schools with and 19 schools without sprinkler systems in the KamloopsThompson district. Sidow noted SD73 does the best with the funding it has available. “We do put safety first, but when you’re working with old facilities and limited capital dollars, you can only do so much,” she said.

Direct to Smelter – Precious Metals Recycling Roadshow returns to Kamloops Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin returns to Kamloops September 18th and 19th. You can bring your gold, silver, coins and Canadian paper money to the Brock Activity Centre between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day. No appointment is required. Barry Dick is a precious metals buyer and President of Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin. “Ursa Major has the unique advantage of dealing direct with a smelter” said Dick. Barry Dick “That allows us to cut out one or even two middlemen. Ursa Major purchases gold and silver from other gold buyers, pawn shops, dentists, jewellers and jewellery makers as well as the general public.” In terms of the US dollar, gold and silver prices appear low but the weak Canadian dollar means prices are strong. Ursa Major analyzes your gold, silver, coins and paper money while you watch, with the process explained to you in detail. Coins with numismatic value are graded and set aside from those with a ‘melt’ value. Silver items such as jewellery and flatware are analyzed for hallmark identification. Items thought to contain gold will also be analyzed for hallmarks, and then confirmed using precise testing that is done while you watch. Then a cash offer is made and you decide to sell or not. “If you decide to sell after hearing the quote, great, but it is also about information” says Dick. “A lot of times people just need to know a ballpark of what things are worth; we don’t pressure anyone into selling.” Dick took out his first gold claim when he turned 16 in the 1970s and has been involved with precious metals ever since. An ardent gold panner, he was a regular at the world championship gold panning competition with a personal best of 3rd place in 1984. “Nearly half of the world’s annual gold harvest comes from recycled gold. Energy costs are about $500 to mine a new ounce of gold where recycled gold is about $10 per ounce. That prevents a lot of diesel from being burned.” Gold and silver purchased at the show and later melted goes back into the market without incurring that environmental cost.

THE WRIT DROPS AND THEY ARE OFF

A

s anti-climactic as it may be, there will still be a news buzz around today’s trip by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Rideau Hall, where he will visit Gov. Gen. Julie Payette to dissolve Parliament. Once she does so, the 2019 federal election will officially begin, though the de facto campaign has been on since at least this past spring. Once the writ drops, all sorts of election rules kick in — how much money each party and candidate can spend, how third-party interest groups register and buy ads, which entities are barred from donating, etc. And, while the door-knocking from various candidates in Kamloops has been occurring for the past few weeks, expect more frequent visits from a larger number of men and women seeking to tell you why they deserve your vote. In the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding, voters will have a record number of candidates from which to choose. The seven people seeking to be MP — Kira Cheeseborough (Animal Protection Party), Dock Currie (NDP), Iain Currie (Green) Ken Finlayson (People’s Party), Peter Kerek (Communist), Terry Lake (Liberal) and Cathy McLeod (Conservative) — represent the most names on the ballot since the riding was formed in 2004. KTW and all the other media in this city will be covering the election campaign deeply. We began last week with a look at what issues are most top of mind with voters we encountered on the street. We continue on page A15 of today’s paper with the first of our series of candidate profiles. Those will be followed by candidates’ takes in a number of issues we have identified, along with the various stories that emerge between now and Oct. 21, when voters go to the polls. Also planned is an Oct. 8 debate at TRU’s Grand Hall, co-hosted by KTW, Radio NL and the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce. There will be plenty of options to get informed. Do so.

Law and order in city

S

eptember signals the start of fall and the pilgrimage back to school for 15,000 students in public schools, another 1,000 in private schools and almost 8,000 at TRU — 3,500 of whom are international students. That is a significant shift in behavioural (and traffic) patterns in our community. Pools, parks and playgrounds fall quiet as the older crowd gets back to its routines and school sites are teeming with activity after the summer recess. As one of my back to school activities as mayor each year, I am invited to address the incoming law class at TRU — in this case, the class of 2022. They are a very keen and focused lot. All dressed in business attire and hailing from all parts of the country, they are very engaged. I always wonder what I can say that would meet their expectations for learned legal inspiration. I usually don’t need to look further than my desk to find a number of topics. The area of municipal law is diverse and fascinating. When thinking about cities and the law, most people naturally think about policing. In our case, RCMP decisions like Regina v. Stenchcome or Regina v. Jordan have huge impacts on how we police our city. The B.C. Independent Investigations Office impacts our approaches to the operation in our municipal jail cells. The Criminal Code oversees everything from the keeping of exhibits to the collection and analysis of evidence by our forensics unit.

KEN CHRISTIAN View From

CITY HALL But there are a lot more instances where we as a city interface with the legal profession. Contract law is an issue with the countless number of contracts I sign on behalf of the community, for everything from improvements on West Victoria Street to the supply of fire trucks. Warranty law is also critical, not so much for the $500 hedge trimmer, but fairly important for the new $1.2-million fire truck we just ordered. Our human resources division deals in labour law routinely. Contracts with CUPE and IAFF, the firefighters’ union, as well as general employment law for our management staff, often require legal analysis, especially around issues at arbitration. Our risk management group deals in nuisance liability and tort law all of the time. Slips and falls are an issue when you are responsible for thousands of kilometres of sidewalks, trails, lanes and roadways. We are fortunate that the Municipal Insurance Association often assists us in defense of

claims. The issues of negligence often came to play for things as simple as trees that grow fast and obscure stop signs or sidewalks that settle and create a trip hazard. That is why our bylaws staff are vigilant in making sure private property owners do their part in addressing hazards. In our development, engineering and sustainability department, real estate law is a major factor on everything from statutory right-ofways to property acquisition and conveyancing. There are myriad legal processes, including development permits, development variance permits, OCP amendments, rezonings and public hearings, that need to be adjudicated in an open, fair and unbiased manner to ensure they can withstand legal challenge. Our finance division deals extensively with tax law and, in the mayor’s office, we, along with our legislative services division, deal with everything from conduct to censure. We always must make sure our work complies with the Community Charter. So, when Dean Brad Morse of TRU Law asks for my input, I guess there are a number of areas I can address. Probably better to have asked the city solicitor, but hey, she is busy! Ken Christian is mayor of Kamloops. Council columns appear monthly in the print edition of KTW and online at kamloopsthisweek.com. Christian can be reached by email at mayor@ kamloops.ca.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR #elxn43 – Oct. 21

Federal Election NOTHING CHANGES IF NOTHING CHANGES Editor: Give Kamloops This Week credit for raising election awareness by highlighting voters’ issues in its Sept. 6 edition. Issues mentioned by interviewees were seniors’ care, guns, education, immigration, the economy and the environment. Not doubt many will roll their eyes at this, but none of the above issues will change until there is electoral reform. We are doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, which makes us fools, as observed by Albert Einstein. Nothing changes if nothing changes. During the last federal election campaign, Justin Trudeau declared that, if elected, the 2015 election would be the last one using the firstpast-the-post system of voting. That was a political promise, a promise made simply to get votes and one that everyone is supposed to know was never meant to be kept. In political circles, telling whoppers and lies may be the way things are done. For most citizens, a lie is a lie. The appropriate behaviour is to be “ash-sh-shamed to show your face in publik,” to quote the son of Sylvester the Cat. So, why should I believe any politician? Why should I vote for anyone? The governors use the electoral system, combined with voters with collective short memories and simple’ minds, to keep themselves in control. Ray Jones Kamloops

SCREENING FILM IS A BAD PLAN Editor: As a longtime supporter of the Kamloops Film Society, I was shocked and saddened by its decision to screen and promote Unplanned, an American anti-choice propaganda film full of lies about abortion and health care. The only reason this film was made (or is being screened) is to undermine women, trans and non-binary people’s right to bodily autonomy. By agreeing to screen and promote this film — and accepting money for doing so — the Kamloops Film Society has sent a clear message to the community that it thinks women, trans and nonbinary people’s right to bodily autonomy is up for debate.

If you agree that our rights are not up for debate, I urge you to write to the Kamloops Film Society Board and ask it to reconsider and reverse its decision. I also urge you to make a public comment on the issue so women, trans and non-binary people in our community know they have some community support. Anti-choice events like this can cause such distress for people who have had abortions. When the rest of the community doesn’t rally to support them, the isolation, fear and stigma they experience increases. Until now, the KFS has always been such a wonderful part of this community.

ICBC NEEDS TRUE COMPETITION IN PROVINCE Editor: I’m not surprised by ads ICBC is running about how private insurance companies are no good for B.C. ICBC alleges any other insurance company is no good, will cancel your insurance at any time, and will not pay claims, etc.

THANKS TO BILL SARAI

ICBC is a typical government-run entity, with those in charge worried about jobs, bonsues and pensions. ICBC is the only option for basic insurance and that makes it an unfair monopoly. In addition, the fact ICBC collects taxes on used vehicles — on which taxes have

already been paid — makes the Crown corporation the real thief in this province. It is time to get rid of this inefficient, government-run corporation.

Editor: I was at the Kamloops council meeting on Aug. 27 and I would like to thank Coun. Bill Sarai for his advice and support. Sarai was the only councillor who understood an issue in our area . The other councillors had already reached a deci-

Frank Weber Kamloops sion ,which made it obvious they really don’t care what people have to say. I will be voting for Sarai if he seeks re-election in 2022.

TALK BACK Q&A: kamloopsthisweek.com We asked:

However, this decision is a serious, and dangerous, misstep. The KFS is trying to claim this is about censorship, but it isn’t. As a community group, it has no obligation to show any film, especially one that targets specific members of the community and will cause them harm and distress. It is cynical and disingenuous for the film society to claim otherwise. It can choose to have policies that ensure films it agrees to screen do not cause harm to community members. Until the film society rethinks its policies, it doesn’t deserve my support.

Parkcrest elementary was a true community school JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Parkcrest elementary in Brocklehurst is more than a building — it’s a place where artwork adorns classroom doors, teachers amass gifts from students and parents planned to install new playground equipment. It was a place where the neighbourhood kids could play. “It’s a community,” parent Vanessa Gammel said. “It’s a community of families and the school brings us all together.” Gammel was in her house making dinner last Thursday night, when her daughter — a Thompson Rivers University student who attended Parkcrest as a kid — ran inside and said there was a fire. The family lives only a few blocks from the school and Gammel thought it was likely a dumpster or something small. She then saw the smoke and realized it was the school in flames. The family got in the car and drove over, watching from the back field as the school they have been connected to for nearly a decade burned. Gammel’s three kids have all attended the school, including her son, Hewson, who started Grade 5 there this week. “It’s something that’s been at the centre of my children’s lives for the past nine years. They spent almost every day there,” Gammel said. “The teachers, you get to know them more like friends. Thinking about all of the things I know that they’ve lost really breaks my heart. Some of those teachers have been doing things there for decades.” Parkcrest parent Danna Bach was also home when the fire broke out. She did not go to the school, but instead fielded questions from her boys Marlow (Grade

Seeing their school in flames was an emotional ordeal for many students. MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW

2) and Cooper (Grade 5) about safety in their family home. For them, fire had suddenly become very real. “They’ve done fire drills lots of times, but usually the teachers try to calm anxieties when they do it and let them know, ‘We’ve never had a fire before and we’re doing this just to make sure you stay safe,’” Bach said. “So they think it’s a pretty farfetched idea, but then when they see something like this happen, it becomes very real.” Other students may see the fire as an extension to summer vacation. Calling it a “shock,” mother Lisa Enns said her son Alex had just started Grade 2 this week, but didn’t seem bothered that his school is now closed. “He’s like, ‘Yeah, no school. I guess I’m not going to school anymore,’” she said. “Well, no. They’ll find something else. … He’s like, ‘I don’t really like school. My favourite parts are lunch and recess.’” But Enns said the school also doubled as a community playground. The PAC, she said, had just purchased new playground equipment, which had yet to be installed. “I know a lot of people use the playground, even when school’s

not in,” she said. Bach feels for the teachers, one of whom she knows has been at the school for at least 15 years. She noted the sheer volume of personal property that went up in flames, from resources to gifts from students. Bach said she was “overwhelmed” by how many people reached out from within the community offering to help. “We’re good,” Bach said. “Our community is so amazing and so fast to reach out.” Her youngest spent Friday with his grandmother, while her oldest attended a day camp at the Kamloops Art Gallery. The gallery opened 20 free spaces for Parkcrest students, which continues until this Friday. KAG school programs co-ordinator Finn Modder said all of the spaces were filled. However, by the time day camp was ready to begin, several parents cancelled, citing the need for their children to stay home to cope. About a dozen kids showed up. “They’re in really good spirits,” Modder said, noting activities of the day included printmaking and touring of the latest KAG exhibition. “They don’t want to talk about it.”

SD73 addressing TREC concerns From A5

Concerns arose, given the reason many students attend TREC is because they have had issues in traditional high school settings. Sidow said the TREC program has seven sites around the school district, noting staff plan to place those “who need a more protected environment” elsewhere. “We may see the majority of students attend NorKam in the interim and we may see some other students being relocated to other sites where they feel very comfortable,” Sidow said.

On Monday night, trustees gave district staff the green light to explore a different option for TREC students. While they will initially be moved to a wing at NorKam, district staff will also explore the possibility of relocating TREC students and eight portables to Happyvale elementary on Holt Street, alongside 4 Directions students, a move that will require two day cares in Happyvale to find new accommodation. Part of staff’s evaluation will be determining if the six class-

rooms at Happyvale will have the electrical capacity to accommodate the eight portables. In formulating the plan, SD73 prioritized keeping Parkcrest students together in their neighbourhood and minimizing the amount of school days missed for the youngest learners, assistant superintendent Rob Schoen said. “We knew that in order for one group to benefit, another group was going to have to make a sacrifice,” Schoen said. “We know that the folks of Twin Rivers are making a sacrifice for the students of Parkcrest.”

A Savona man in his early 20s died in an accident on the 6800 block of Savona Access Road early Sunday morning. Morgan Munden, 22, died in the single-vehicle crash, which occurred at about 2 a.m. Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Stolen property was at the centre of a confrontation on Saturday, an incident that included gunfire, but resulted in no injuries. The incident 45 minutes east of Kamloops occurred just after 2 p.m., when police responded to reports of shots fired from a home on Hilliam Road. Chase RCMP Sgt. Barry Kennedy said a group of residents believed the home to be connected with a rash of recent thefts, which have occurred in the past month. The group of

residents went to the house to confront the occupants and a loud noise, sounding like a gunshot, could be heard from within the home as a man yelled at the group to leave. “A male was then seen exiting the house carrying a shotgun, walking toward the group who had retreated to the roadway,” a Chase RCMP press release stated. “The male then returned to the house.” Mounties from Chase and Salmon Arm responded, along with the South East District Emergency Response

Team. The suspect, however, fled before police arrived and the gun was not found. Mounties say they are familiar with the residence. Kennedy said the house is unoccupied, owned by someone who lives out of town. He said police are working with BC Community Corrections because some people have been giving their probation officer the house address, unbeknownst to the homeowner. “We have descriptions of the suspects and, through association of previous files we’ve had at

the house, we have a fairly good idea who they are, so now we’re attempting to locate them,” Kennedy said. Potential charges could include breach of probation and firearms offences. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chase detachment at 250679-3221 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477. Police are also reminding the public that it is concerning when people bypass law enforcement and take matters into their own hands, which poses safety risks and may jeopardize an investigation.

LOCAL NEWS SAGEBRUSH THEATRE REPAIRS SOON FINISHED Sagebrush Theatre could re-open by Oct. 10. A cracked roof truss was discovered in February, shuttering School District 73’s 685-seat theatre that is adjacent to South Kamloops secondary at Ninth Avenue and Munro Street. The closure left the arts community scrambling to find alternative venues in which to host plays, dance recitals, musical acts and more. On Monday, SD73 secretary-treasurer Kelvin Stretch told trustees the contractor is awaiting the arrival of some steel needed to make the repair, which remains on schedule. In order to fix the truss, a steel exoskeleton needs to be built to hold it up. The project’s cost is

School District

BRIEFS $900,000, a bill not covered by insurance. Stretch said the materials are expected to arrive on Sept. 20 and be installed over that weekend. “The whole project is just waiting for that steel to arrive,” Stretch said, noting some additional work has been done inside the building in the interim. Local development company A&T Project Developments Inc. was hired to make the repairs.

MORE TEACHERS TO BE HIRED AT ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS Increased enrolment has led to more teachers being hired at elementary schools in School District 73. Trustees on Monday night unanimously approved a request to add four teachers for the 2019-2020 school year — one each at Aberdeen, Logan Lake and Pacific Way elementary schools and the Beattie School of the Arts. Funding for the increase in enrolment in the school district will cover the cost of adding the teaching positions. Currently, SD73 is welcoming 132 more elementary students than it did last

September and 38 more elementary students than what was projected. The school district pegged the number of elementary school students attending for the 2019-2020 school year at 8,982, but current enrolment stands at 9,020. Assistant superintendent Rob Schoen said that while projections are fairly accurate, what’s unexpected is increases in certain areas. All four schools receiving new teachers are showing enrolment increases above 10 students. “Our schools feel tight because they are tight,” Schoen said. Kindergarten and elementary grade enrolment is up by 87 and 45 students, respectively, from last September as 1,133 kindergarten

students and 7,887 grades 1 to 7 students are enrolled as of Sept. 6, compared to 1,046 kindergarten and 7,842 elementary students enrolled last year on Sept. 30, 2018. SD73 was expecting 28 fewer kindergarteners and 10 fewer elementary school students. WESTWOLD CAN REMAIN OPEN Westwold elementary has enough students to remain open for the 2019-2020 school year. Superintendent Alison Sidow said the required minimum of six students have now enrolled at the rural school 45 minutes east of Kamloops. The news elicited a round of applause from trustees on Monday night.

BC Transit bus upgrades protect drivers JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Bus drivers will soon be separated via tempered glass from passengers. BC Transit announced this week a $6.5-million project to add full driver doors to new and existing buses throughout the province, including most of the Kamloops fleet. The transparent doors are laminated tempered glass with an

anti-glare coating and metal base. According to BC Transit, they can be adjusted to account for sight lines and will still allow passengers to see and speak with drivers. New buses will see them installed later this year, while a retrofit program for existing buses will begin early next year, through 2022. BC Transit communications manager Jonathon Dyck said the program aims to increase driver safety.

BC Transit has made other strides to that effect, adding CCTV cameras to buses, partnering with local police agencies, enhancing communication technology and providing drivers with training to de-escalate situations that may arise onboard. Kamloops also recently got rid of the transfer system as part of a new rate structure at the request of BC Transit, in part to reduce driver-passenger conflicts. Dyck said

doors are increasingly used by transit agencies across the continent. Asked what is happening to drivers, Dyck cited “very rare” assaults on board. He could not provide local statistics. Kamloops has a total of 69 buses, including HandyDARTs. Fourtyseven of them will be part of the retrofit program, which will begin in Victoria and move to Kelowna. The rest of the schedule will be determined at a

We Use Top Quality Swiss Made Renata watch batteries

later date. Any new regular buses that come to Kamloops earlier, however, will include the new doors. The cost to the City of Kamloops could not be provided by BC Transit.

The city began maintenance work this week on paths and trails at McArthur Island, McDonald Park and the River’s Trail downtown. City of Kamloops parks manager Jeff Putnam said the work, closing down the trails to users until about the end of next week, is part of regular annual maintenance. The project totals $200,000 and will be paid for via existing capital budget dollars. Unlike concrete, asphalt requires maintenance because it is malleable. Soil compaction, tree roots and environmental factors can impact its condition. The specific areas see-

ing asphalt rehabilitation include: the River’s Trail around McArthur Island; the River’s Trail downtown between Seventh and Eighth avenues and from 10th Avenue along River Street past the community garden toward the ball diamonds; and two portions of trail at McDonald Park. In addition, the basketball court at McDonald Park is being resurfaced. “We inspect regularly and we do priority based on public safety and condition of the trail, throughout its entire length,” Putnam said. Some residents have written to Kamloops This Week, detailing less than ideal pathway conditions at McArthur Island. Putnam said it is getting a “closer look,” with seniors and rollerbladers frequenting

the area. He added the city is looking at a capital project to rehabilitate the entire McArthur Island ring road, including the road and path. The road, which is known to have unintended natural speed bumps, has not been redone in Putnam’s time at the city and he estimated it’s been an upward of two decades. He said conversations will need to take place with council, with the goal of putting in a supplementary budget request in 2020. Costs are unknown at this time. “It’s something we recognize needs to get done,” Putnam said. Park users can still utilize the areas but are asked to avoid areas closed with barricades.

A Thompson Rivers University social work student has tossed her name into the hat for the upcoming federal election, which will be her first kick at the political can. Kira Cheeseborough, 25, is running for the Animal Protection Party of Canada. On its website, the party describes itself as the country’s first federal party dedicated to the protection of all animals and the environment. About a dozen candidates are listed across the country. Conceding it is a fringe party, Cheeseborough said the APP is “bringing compassion into politics,” noting she is running because she feels the voices of those impacted by government policies are often missed. Cheeseborough said she has experienced homelessness and, in addition to being a part-time student in her third year, she is

sk Iain Currie why he’s running in the federal election campaign — which officially begins on Wednesday — and you will hear a story linked to Al Gore. About a decade ago, the Kamloops lawyerturned-Green candidate submitted a Wallace and Gromit-style stop-motion video of him recycling to win a trip to Montreal to learn from the former presidential candidate and Inconvenient Truth star’s Climate Reality Project. Currie said it opened his eyes and, when he returned home, he reduced his carbon footprint and educated others about climate change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report released last year, however, made him feel as though he needed to do more. “It wasn’t enough for me to be recycling. It wasn’t enough for me to be walking wherever I

could,” Currie told KTW during an interview at his downtown campaign office. “We need to do more and that meant that, if I was going to be consistent with the things that I value, that I need to do something more.” Currie was born in Kamloops in 1969, studied law at the University of British Columbia, articled in Vancouver, moved to Nanaimo to start a family and circled back to Kamloops in 1999, when he joined the Crown Prosecution Service. He worked as a prosecutor until the fall of 2017, around the time he met his second wife, Dr. Lisa Steele, who works in forensics. After nearly two decades as a Crown prosecutor, Currie decided to go private, in order to avoid perceived conflict. He now works primarily in personal injury law at Cundari Seibel LLP Lawyers. His kids are senior high school to university age and live and study in Kelowna and North Vancouver. “I’m a father, I’m a lawyer, I’m a Kamloopsian

and I am now the Green party candidate,” Currie said. Asked why someone should vote for him, he cited the transition to a green economy — people who build pipelines have the skills to build wind farms, he noted — the Green party’s goals to keep Canada’s carbon footprint at the Paris Climate Accord target of 1.5 C and “doing politics differently.” Currie said the Green party does not whip votes, meaning MPs are not required to follow party lines — and he pointed out that Greens don’t heckle in Parliament. Currie said the party is about more than environmental issues, noting the Green platform will address other key issues, including the economy and health care. During the last election, Currie said, Green was the lone party to submit its budget to the parliamentary office. “Our platform is revenue-neutral,” he said. “We’re not just into sustainability and the environment — we’re also into sustainability and the economy.”

Trans Mountain Expansion Project – CONSTRUCTION NOTIFICATION BC Interior | September 2019 – February 2022* Trans Mountain is beginning construction of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project in the BC Interior between Black Pines and the Coquihalla Summit this fall (Construction Spread 5A). Construction will commence in a series of phased activities along the pipeline right-of-way through Black Pines, Kamloops and Merritt beginning no sooner than September 2019 and continuing until February 2022.* The schedule of construction activities and map on the following pages provide more information about the timing of construction activities in each community. Detailed explanations of the construction activities follows the map.

that could be caused by construction, operations, decommissioning or abandonment, as well as potential incidents and malfunctions. The information and analysis were used to develop our Environmental Protection Plans.

*Dates are subject to change and commencement of work is subject to necessary regulatory approvals and permits.

Stockpile Sites and Construction Yards

The public’s patience is appreciated as we work to minimize any disruptions or inconvenience associated with construction activities. WHAT YOU MAY NOTICE During the course of these activities, the public may notice: • Construction equipment and vehicles, and workers on-site • Increased activity and intermittent construction-type noise in proximity to the worksite • Signage in locations where construction activities will take place near recreation areas • Additional directed lighting at the worksite • Intermittent, temporary traffic delays or increase in traffic volumes

Mitigation strategies for avoiding or reducing potential environmental effects will be employed at all stages of the Project. For more information about environmental mitigation methods and our Environmental Protection Plans, visit transmountain.com/environmental-protection-plans.

In 2019, Trans Mountain began preparing and activating pipe stockpile sites to support construction-related activity. These sites are being used for: • Delivery and storage of construction materials and equipment, including stockpiling and staging of pipe • Installation of temporary office buildings or trailers to support construction crews building the pipeline and associated facilities • Transportation of materials and equipment to and from the site One site has been activated in Kamloops. In the coming months, crews will also prepare an additional two stockpile sites/construction yards located in Kamloops and one stockpile site/construction yard in Merritt for use in the near future. The Merritt site will be in the same location as the temporary worker camp. Preparing a Right-of-Way

Trans Mountain’s goal is to maintain safe work environments and minimize any impacts of these activities to the public and the environment. When work commences, the following measures will be in place to manage these impacts:

There are a number of steps involved in preparing the right-of-way for the arrival of construction crews and equipment, including clearing, flagging and installing temporary infrastructure. They include:

• Hours of work: – Activities will mainly take place between 7 am and 7 pm, Monday to Saturday – Some facility construction work may take place on Sundays

• BC One Call, locating and marking of all buried facilities

• Contractors will abide by applicable noise bylaws, variances may be required for unexpected activities – Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) will be conducted under applicable Noise Management Plans, as HDDs require continuous 24/7 construction. Noise bylaw variances may also be required for HDDs. • Dust from construction traffic will be controlled using best industry practices, including water trucks and street sweepers • Lighting will be directed only on areas of work for worker safety • Tree and vegetation removal work will comply with necessary approvals. Registered professional foresters and certified arborists will be on-site as needed. • Construction-related traffic will follow site-specific traffic management plans to minimize impacts to road users • Construction vehicles will not occupy off-site public parking spaces • Work will be monitored by Environmental Inspectors Trans Mountain conducts all work under its Environmental Protection and Pipeline Protection Programs to ensure compliance with applicable regulations and requirements.

ACTIVITIES

Stockpile site & construction yard development

• Surveying • Flagging and staking the right-of-way and any temporary workspace required for construction • Installation of signage • Clearing trees and vegetation from pre-approved areas essential for construction • Disposing or burning of unsalvageable timber, like branches, tree limbs or shrubs left behind from clearing Throughout these activities, we will implement environmental mitigation measures outlined in our Environmental Protection Plans at transmountain.com/environmental-protection-plans. Utility Relocation Trans Mountain will work collaboratively with TELUS and/or BC Hydro to relocate utilities in some areas, where new right-of-way areas are required. This should not impact your services but you may see work crews in your area. Pipeline Construction Once clearing is complete and access to the right-of-way has been established, crews will perform a series of steps within the construction footprint to facilitate installation of pipe in the ground: • Remove topsoil and grade the surface to prepare for the arrival of bigger equipment and delivery of pipe segments • Remove pipe from delivery trucks and lay down along right-of-way • Weld pipe segments together and apply a protective coating • Perform non-destructive examinations to ensure quality of welds • Dig a trench and lower in pipe sections

Pump station construction

• Backfill the trench to bed and protect the pipe • Cleanup and reclamation activities. These include returning the right-of-way to its original grade, replacing any topsoil and replanting vegetation.

*Dates are subject to change and commencement of work is subject to necessary regulatory approvals and permits.

CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY DETAILS Environmental Protection As part of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, extensive work has been conducted to determine environmental impacts and mitigation measures to reduce those impacts. Our goal is to protect the environment, have as little impact as possible and, where we do have an impact, ensure we return the land to a similar function following contruction. We completed field studies between 2012 and 2018 along the pipeline corridor studying a wide range of environmental features, including wildlife, fisheries, plants, species at risk or species of special status, soils, heritage resources, traditional land use and air and greenhouse gas emissions. Following the field studies, we conducted extensive analysis to predict the effects associated with the Project, including those

Where the pipeline crosses a body of water, one of three methods of construction will be used. The techniques for each are site-specific: • Isolated method – The stream is temporarily dammed and rerouted through temporary pumps or using piping often referred to as a flume. The pipe is then installed using conventional construction techniques before the dam is removed and the stream returned to its normal flow path. Great care is taken to preserve the environmental features around the stream, such as the wildlife and aquatic habitat provided within the riparian zone. • Trenchless method – Trenchless construction methods can be used to cross under some watercourses, leaving the bed and banks relatively undisturbed. Trenchless methods are only possible in the right geotechnical conditions and require special environmental measures to be put in place. • Open-cut method – If the other techniques cannot be used for environmental or geotechnical reasons, we will use an open-cut crossing of the watercourse. Open-cut watercourse crossings trench directly through the watercourse following the conventional construction methodology. Engineering feasibility assessments have been made to determine the most suitable crossing techniques to be used at each water crossing. Regulatory guidelines and standards will apply to all crossing methods, as will appropriate erosion and sediment control measures to ensure the safety of the body of water.

Horizontal Directional Drilling Four HDDs will be completed in Spread 5A including the Thompson River, the Nicola River and two crossings of the Coldwater River. An HDD is a trenchless construction technique used for select watercourse crossings and in places with restricted workspace such as some urban or residential areas. This technique involves set up of a drill rig on one side of the crossing and equipment along the drill path. The pipe is assembled and welded on the opposite side to the drill setup, with the pipe string connected to the drill assembly and pulled back through the drill path. The HDD drill path is deep below the river and avoids disturbance to the river bed. For more information on horizontal direction drilling, please visit transmountain.com/building-a-pipeline. Performing a Hydrostatic Test Before the pipeline is ready to transport oil, a hydrostatic test is performed. A hydrostatic test is a way pipelines can be assessed for strength and any potential leaks. The test involves filling the pipe system with water and increasing pressure of the pipe to the specified test pressure. Should there be any leaks or weaknesses, they can be identified through this test and rectified. Hydrostatic testing is the most common method employed for testing pipes. Valve Installations Valves are installed at intermediate locations as required by the pipeline design and the Canadian Standards Association pipeline code. The valves are used once the line is operational to shut off or then isolate part of the pipeline. Valve installation will take place along the pipeline route once hydrostatic tests are completed. Pump Station Construction Pump stations contain electric motors to drive the pumps that maintain the pressure and flow rate in the pipeline. Twelve new pump stations will be installed as part of the Project. Eleven new pump stations will be installed on the new pipeline and one new pump station will be added on the existing pipeline. Ten of the pump stations on the new pipeline will be added at existing pump station facilities. Construction of the pump stations involves the following steps: • Site preparation, including clearing vegetation and installing fencing • Installing piles and pouring concrete • Installing mechanical equipment • Piping and tie-ins (welding) • Constructing structural steel and buildings • Electrical installation and instrumentation • Insulation and pre-commissioning • Cleanup and restoration activities Pump station construction activities will take place over an 8 – 10-month period at each site (timing subject to change).

COMMUNITY 250-374-7467 or email editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Literacy leaders Kelsey Hryhirchuk (left) and Paige DeWolff brought the Bright Red Book Bus to neighbourhoods throughout the city this past summer, helping local children join in the pursuit of reading adventures. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

Bus pages all young book lovers TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Bright Red Book Bus has again helped kids keep their eyes away from glowing screens and locked onto the written word. “The program is really all about getting books in the hands of kids,” said Traci Anderson, executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Kamloops. “And the intention over the summer is to decrease the summer learning slide that happens.” The Bright Red Book Bus has been providing literature to the children of Kamloops for six years, and this year delivered 3,263 books — and numerous health snacks — to the community during 80 bus visits. There were an average of 40 visitors each day and, according to Anderson, graphic novels were the top genre for readers this year. “Dog Man is one of the top favourites,” she said, though she noted books like

Harry Potter also remain popular. The Bright Red Book Bus is a project that was developed between the Boys and Girls Club, School District 73, Literacy in Kamloops and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District library system. It was developed as way to expand on the Bright Red Bookshelves that are located throughout the city. The bus maintained a consistent schedule through July and August, with regular visits to nine schools and seven parks, often during special events. It also made a single trip up to Sun Peaks. “It’d be nice if we could go everywhere and share it with everyone,” Anderson said. “But the feasibility of that’s not always easy. We’re always looking for sponsors for next year.” The cost of the program in 2019 was $25,000, with some funding from the federal government’s Canada Summer Jobs Program to cover the wages for two fulltime staff over the summer months. One of the larger expenses for the program is the cost of books, most of which

are purchased for the book bus, though people are also encouraged to donate books at the Boys and Girls Club, which is in the John Tod Centre at 150 Wood St. in North Kamloops. “Whether they go on the bus or they go through the bookshelves throughout town, we get them to where they need to go,” Anderson said. READ ALL ABOUT IT The annual Raise a Reader Day will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 25. On that morning, notable Kamloopsians will fan out across the city, selling copies of KTW — which will include a Raise a Reader section. Raise a Reader Day is a national initiative run through Postmedia Network, with non-Postmedia organizations like KTW getting involved. Other Kamloops-area communities taking part include Barriere, Clearwater, Chase and Logan Lake. All money raised goes to fund Literacy in Kamloops programs.

Lacing ‘em up for the Terry Fox Run THE 38TH ANNUAL EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE THIS SUNDAY IN RIVERSIDE PARK This year marks the 38th edition of the annual event, meant to raise funds for cancer research, carrying on Terry’s Marathon of Hope. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with the run starting at 10 a.m. Route distances are 1km, 5km and 10km and are suitable for bicycles, wheelchairs, strollers and rollerblades. Dogs are not allowed. There is no entry fee. Participants are encouraged to raise pledges online or on paper or make a donation at the run site on run day. To register online, go to terryfox.org, select “Terry Fox Run” and then click on “Find a Run site.” Use the drop-down menu to find Kamloops, select “Sign Up” and either sign in as a returning participant or create a new login. Select “Create Login”if you’re a new registrant. The registration process will simultaneously create a fundraising page, which you can use to raise funds online in support of your participation. You have three types of registration options. You can register as an individual participant, join an existing run team, or create a new run team.

ittle more than a year after the tragic Humboldt Broncos’ bus crash, survivor Layne Matechuk still lights up over hockey. He’s all smiles when dad Kevin talks about being at the rink, when Kamloops Blazers’ defender Kyrell Sopotyk recalls billeting with him in Prince Albert and, especially, when being presented with a brand-spanking new jersey from the local WHL hockey club, along with an invite to skate with the team in Saskatoon this winter. At the podium on Thursday night, in front of a crowd of about 80 people at Paramount Theatre, Layne’s smile and strength did not reveal all he has been through: a national tragedy that flipped the hockey world upside down, the death of his friends and teammates, the end of his competitive hockey career and a brain injury — one he is hell-bent on overcoming. “I am not going to let this stop me,” Layne told the crowd, explaining his goal of becoming a physiotherapist. “I will continue to work to get better and I would like to say to everyone to keep working hard, never give up and keep working at getting follow better.” us The 19-year-old from smalltown Colonsay, Sask., was in the Tournament Capital with his family last week, speaking about his brain injury as part of a presentation by the Kamloops Brain Injury Association. follow us

Every brain injury is different and Layne’s has impacted him physically and verbally. Kevin said his son is still his son — and Layne’s strength appears to come in part from his parents, Kevin and mom Shelley, who wore Layne’s No. 28 on their backs alongside him. Kevin described the unexpected nature of the bus crash, which occurred on the sunny day of April 6, 2018. The junior A Humboldt Broncos were en route to a playoff game when the driver of a semitruck blew through a stop sign, hitting the bus, killing 16 people and injuring 13, including Layne. Kevin shared the family’s unwavering belief Layne had survived the crash and their experience during Layne’s hospital stay, when he was first in a coma. Hospital staff supported the family in those early days, with one nurse offering advice that stuck: “Bad things happen fast. Good things take time.” “That is so very true,” Kevin told the crowd in Kamloops. The road to recovery has not been easy and is far from over. Layne has to focus on the simplest of tasks, such as walking, continues speech therapy and needs jaw surgery. Also important is rest, nutrition and plenty of things to look forward to, in helping to keep his spirits up. After the public appearance in Kamloops — which included an appearance at Friday’s Gur Singh Invitational Golf Tournament, which raises money for the Kamloops Brain Injury Association — the family was excited to travel to Vancouver

Island to go salmon fishing. During his post-crash journey, Layne missed high school graduation and his sister’s convocation. However, he has been back on the ice and hopes to one day play recreational hockey. “This has been a slow process, but the progress he has made is unbelievable,” Kevin said. The Matechuk family has been grateful to lean on others impacted by the accident. Kevin said the families still talk regularly via group chat. The most surprising thing, he said, is finding that life continues. Healing doesn’t happen overnight, like in the movies. And the biggest obstacle? It links back to the rink. “I loved watching him play hockey so much that it was devastating to us, not going to the rink,” Kevin said. “But then, seeing him on skates again. Well, he might not play competitive hockey again, but he might play rec hockey again.” Kamloops Blazers were on hand Thursday night. They presented Layne with a jersey and invited him for a game-day skate when the Blazers travel to the Paris of the Prairies to take on the Saskatoon Blades in December. Blazers’ defender Sopotyk, who lived with Layne in Prince Albert as a 15-year-old midget triple A player in their 2016-2017 season, is looking forward to stepping on the ice with Layne, saying it will bring back memories of when he was a rookie and Layne was a veteran. “It’ll be a super special moment,” he said.

Kamloops Indian Residential School to be a ‘Stop of Interest’ KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

When tourists explore Kamloops, they will now see a new provincial sign outside what once was the local residential school. The Ministry of Transportation and Tk’emlups te Secwepémc have unveiled the latest Stop of Interest sign. The signs, first launched in 1958, have been placed in 19 locations across the province since the government called for nominations in 2016. The signs share stories of the people,

places and events that helped shape B.C.’s history. The Kamloops Indian Residential School is no exception. It was established in 1893 and closed in 1977. Thousands of Secwepémc children between the ages of four and 15 were forcibly taken from their families and prohibited from practising their language, culture and traditions. Many faced abuse. “This was a dark time in our province’s history,” Transportation Minister Claire Trevena said.

“Although markers like these can be painful reminders of historical wrongs, they also provide an opportunity to recognize past mistakes and educate future generations. “ It is important that we acknowledge the existence of the Kamloops Indian Residential School and the tragic impact it has had, and continues to have, on the Secwepémc people.” Tk’emlups Chief Rosanna Casimir said the sign honours those still impacted by residential schools, including survivors and their families.

The BC SPCA has partnered with Northern Lights Estate Winery to launch The Bear, a new Pinot Grisstyle wine with a purpose. The wine is made using surplus apples sourced from local properties, with the goal of deterring bears from entering developed areas in search of leftover or fallen fruit. In addition to protecting local bears, the BC SPCA will receive $2 from each bottle sold to help animals in need across the province. Craig Daniell, chief executive officer of the BC SPCA, said the initiative is a creative example of how individuals and businesses can make a difference for B.C. wildlife. “British Columbia is fortunate to have an abundance of wildlife, including both black bears and grizzly bears,” Daniell said. “But, as urban development expands into wild animal habitats, bear encounters have become a normal part of life, with tragic consequences for the bears.” In the fall, as bears prepare for hibernation, they need to build up fat to survive the winter. They seek out easily accessed foods, including compost, garbage and fruit trees. “Unfortunately, these food sources bring bears and people closer together,” Daniell said. “Over time, bears may lose their natural fear of people and start to associate people with food. Sadly, hundreds of ‘problem’ bears end up being killed by conservation officers in B.C. every year.” The BC SPCA reminds individuals to do their part in keeping B.C. bears safe by being aware of the following attractants: ripe or fallen fruit, unsecured garbage and compost/food scraps, outdoor pet food storage, bird feeders, outdoor fridges and freezers, bee hives and chicken coops. For more information on where to buy The Bear wine, go online to northernlightswinery.ca.

BUSINESS

How to avoid back to school scams The new school year is here. With footwear, food, clothes and general school supplies among the top contenders on the back to school shopping list that continues through September, many consumers will be looking for deals to help reduce costs. The Better Business Bureau offers the following advice on how to shop smart for back to school: SHOPPING IN-STORE: • Create a list. Jot down everything you need and stick to the list. Impulse purchases can increase your overall bill. Also, try shopping within your home before heading to the store. You may already have some of the items from last year that are still in good condition. Why purchase the same things twice? • Research big ticket items, Before purchas-

ing that expensive laptop or tablet, research the brands, warranty, customer reviews and the prices at various stores to be sure you are getting the best deal. Also, look up the retailer online at bbb. org. • Shop smart with sales. Compare prices between different retail stores, save your coupons, sign up for email alerts and redeem any cash-back or rebate offers. This will help you get the best deals. • Ask for student discounts. Many stores and software companies offer discounts to students that have a student ID. Even if you do not see a discount advertised at the store, it does not hurt to ask. • Know the return policies and save your receipts. Children can be fickle. They can love a new shirt today and hate it tomorrow. Ask about the return

policies before making your purchase. Be sure to save your receipts just in case you have to return the item later. SHOPPING ONLINE This past year saw online purchase scams holding one of the top spots on the BBB’s Top 10 Scams list and, without a doubt, many parents will be looking for back to school deals on the internet. “BBB’s Risk Index

found that online purchase scams are among the top five riskiest scams,” said Karla Davis, the BBB’s manager for community and public relations. “With so many different kinds of scams online and even honest businesses sometimes being duped with counterfeit goods, it is important to use caution while browsing for deals.” • Make sure you are

shopping on legitimate websites. Do not rely on a simple Google search. Scammers are placing fake contact numbers and websites at the top of internet searches and can trick you into thinking you are purchasing from a real business. • Ensure the website’s URL starts with “https” and includes a lock symbol. The “s” in “https” shows your information is being protected. • Review the privacy policy and contact information for the business. If these details are not clearly listed on the website or they only have an email address as their point of contact, treat this as a big red flag and shop elsewhere. • Do your research. While an unknown website may offer a similar product at a lower price, the lowest price may not be the

best route. Check for customer reviews and badges for consumer protection agencies, like BBB’s seal of trust. • Avoid flashy popup ads. These may just be click-bait ads that trick you into revealing personal and financial information. • Pay with a credit card. This payment method not only provides additional protection, but makes it easier to dispute a fraudulent charge. • Be extremely wary of any websites or stores that ask for your child’s personal information in order to access special deals. A child’s social insurance number is valuable to those committing identity theft because it offers a clean, blank slate to create and obtain fraudulent records which can go undetected for several years. If a business asks for their SIN, get more

information. Why do they need it and where and how is this information being stored? How long is it being stored and how will it be terminated? Who has access to it? • Read the fine print. Understand return policies, particularly on sale items. • You may find items on sites like Craigslist. If you are buying school supplies through a website like Craigslist, avoid using wire transfers to make payments. Consider using PayPal or paying by cash. Thoroughly inspect the items before handing over your money, make sure to meet in a public space and have someone accompany you.

The biggest mistake an investor can make There are many tips and lists to help improve investor returns; however, we believe investor behaviour is the most important one. As humans, we rely on logic, but emotions often get in the way. We are naturally programmed this way as part of our "fight or flight" DNA. It is natural to feel frustrated and want to follow strong performing investments. The challenge is if you jump around trying to catch the top performer, it rarely works out. Every year, an independent financial analytic firm, Dalbar, compares investor results to a relevant benchmark. Most of the data is from the U.S. however we feel is relevant to Canadians. The most recent report showed over the 10-year period data ending on December 31, 2017 noted that the S&P 500 Index (S&P 500) average return was 8.5% versus the average U.S. equity mutual fund investor of 4.88% for a shortfall of 3.6%. To put it another way, the average investor under-

performed the market returns by staggering 42%. We do not find it a coincidence that this 10-year period includes the financial crisis of 2008 where many investors resolve were taken to the limits and some may have made emotional decisions to sell at a poor time. Dalbar goes on to conclude that “No matter the state of the industry, boom or bust, investment results are more dependent on investor behaviour than fund performance. Mutual fund investors who hold their investments have been more successful than those who try to time the market.” It is worth adding that fees do affect performance however; they are the second detractor of results. Investors are continually influenced throughout good and bad markets by the media and industry professionals vying for attention and trying to forecast an unknown future. We would add that many of these pundits are not accountable to sit across from you, the client, admit they got it wrong and how it impacted your net worth as a result. A recent example was in last December's sharp market sell off, many of the headlines were screaming to get out and the worst is yet to

come… Only to have the market turn around on December 26 and make a phenomenal recovery in early 2019. In this day and age, most people are “too connected”. Investors are influenced by short-term results despite having longer-term goals. In our experience, retirees are more vulnerable since they no longer work and often rely on their savings. Some watch the business news and check their accounts online daily. An analogy that I liked was “If you planted a tree, would you dig it up every day to see if it took root?” If you feel that you need to check daily, then you may need to revisit your portfolio mix. We are not saying that we should take an “ostrich approach” however, practicing patience and looking only a few years into the future tends to help ground oneself and improve decision making. Like fitness and weight loss, people need to stick with their plan over time to reap the benefits. We believe that there are no shortcuts to good health or investing wealth. Until next time...

Trudeau to make election call Wednesday with morning visit to Rideau Hall STEPHANIE LEVITZ

CANADIAN PRESS

SO MANY WAYS TO SCRATCH.

FIND YOUR MATCH.

NT_2019_SW_KamloopTW_HPVert

OTTAWA — The next federal election will formally begin Wednesday morning with a trip by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Rideau Hall, where he’ll ask Gov. Gen. Julie Payette to dissolve Parliament, according to Liberal sources who agreed on condition of anonymity to confirm details not yet released to the public. With that starts five weeks of crosscountry campaigning in earnest by the leaders of the federal parties vying to form government when Canadians cast their ballots Oct. 21. All have effectively been campaigning for weeks, setting the stage for what many predict will be a brutish battle for the 170 seats needed for a majority. Liberal ministers have been making government funding announcements all summer long, while at the same time rarely missing an opportunity to swipe at their chief rivals, the Conservatives. The Conservatives and New Democrats bounced around the country too, taking turns bashing the Liberal record while hyping their own bona fides. In Quebec, a major battleground with 78 seats, the Bloc Quebecois aren’t just going after the Liberals but at Green Leader Elizabeth May, whom they view as a potential threat in their backyard. May’s party heads into this election in one of its strongest positions ever and she’s spent the summer shoring up the national campaign. Trying to prove he also has one of those is People’s Party of Canada chief Maxime Bernier, the former Tory now stirring the political pot with controversial positions on immigration and climate change, and fighting a battle to be included in the official election debates scheduled for the second week of October. Key themes this election will likely include environmental policy, Canada’s place in the world, federal spending, and to what extent a national economy that has performed well by statistical measures has secured Canadians’ personal finances. That last point will be central,

with the three main federal parties all promising to make life in Canada more affordable. Both the Conservatives and New Democrats have already started making campaign promises in that spirit. The Conservatives have pledged, among other things, to cut the federal tax on home-heating bills. Just Tuesday, the NDP promised a tax on the super-rich to fund expanded public health coverage. “New Democrats have the courage to make different choices. Unlike the Liberals and Conservatives who work for their rich and powerful friends, we will help people who are struggling to get by,’’ said NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh in Hamilton, Ont. Except to see a lot of Singh in the Hamilton area. The NDP is faltering in the polls nationally but believe that’s one zone where they won’t just hold onto seats but potentially pick up one or two, thanks to union card holders frustrated by the Liberals. But the election begins Wednesday with the Liberals and Conservatives duelling for first place in popular support. Polls suggest at this point, neither would likely win a majority in the House of Commons if an election were held immediately. At least 170 seats are required to form a majority government. Heading into the election, the Liberals hold 177, the Conservatives 95, the NDP 39, the Bloc 10 and the Greens 2. There are eight independents — including former Liberal cabinet ministers Jane Philpott and Jody Wilson-Raybould. The People’s Party of Canada has one seat and former New Democrat Erin Weir sits as a member of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. Five seats are vacant. By law, voting day is set for Oct. 21, but the prime minister had a two-week window starting Sept. 1 in which to begin the formal campaign. The opposition parties, which have been highly critical of the Liberals’ summer spending spree, had already decided to just kick off their own efforts. The NDP’s campaign began over the weekend, while the Greens and the Conservatives will also begin Wednesday.

Boy, 13, uses GoPro to help RCMP solve 27-year-old cold case THE BODY OF A WOMAN MISSING SINCE 1992 WAS RECOVERED FROM A LAKE NEAR REVELSTOKE JOCELYN DOLL

REVELSTOKE REVIEW

RCMP in Revelstoke are finally able to close a 27-year-old case file involving a missing woman from Vancouver Island, all thanks to a 13-yearold boy and his GoPro. Solving the case began when guests of the Griffin Lake Cabins spotted a car at the bottom of the lake in August. Everyone thought it was from an accident in 2009 where four people were pulled out of the water, west of Revelstoke on Highway 1. However, an offduty RCMP officer who was at the cabins visiting family had told the owners that the vehicle involved in the accident had been recovered from the lake shortly after it crashed. The new find prompted police to take a closer look. When two officers visited the property, Nancy Werenka,

MAX WERENKA

whose family owns Griffin Lake Cabins, took them out on the water. Unfortunately, they couldn’t see the vehicle. “The conditions have to be perfect,” Werenka told the Revelstoke Review. So her 13-year-old son, Max, dove below the surface and took a video of the car with his GoPro in hand. From there, the RCMP called in their underwater recovery team who made it out to the lake on Aug. 24. The vehicle’s licence plate was still intact and investigators were able to confirm that it belonged to a woman who had

been missing since 1992. Most importantly, the woman’s body was still inside, Revelstoke RCMP Cpl. Thomas Blakney said. The family later shared that it was Janet Farris who was found. Farris had gone missing on her way from Vancouver Island to Alberta for a wedding back in 1992. The vehicle has been carefully towed out of the lake and is being inspected to determine the cause of the accident. Blakney said there was no damage to the front end of the vehicle, possibly because the cement barriers that are now in place at that location were not there at the time. But other than that they can only speculate for now, whether she was swerving to miss an animal or had a medical emergency. “We don’t know that,” Blakney said. He also speculated about how many

people had come across the vehicle and not reported it to the RCMP, saying this is a perfect example of why people should contact police with tips. “We follow up those complaints, we follow up those tips,” he said. The Revelstoke RCMP currently has 26 missing person cases and, just like this one, they hope to bring closure to more families, Blakney said. “There is the right time of day, the right lighting, the right person, the right place, the right time — there’s a lot of factors that fall into place.”

WIKIMEDIA COMMONS PHOTO Toxins unleased in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City added to the initial toll of those killed when the two World Trade Center towers collapsed.

AT 9/11 MEMORIAL, A NOD TO OTHER VICTIMS JENNIFER PELYZ

CANADIAN PRESS

NEW YORK CITY — When the names of nearly 3,000 Sept. 11 victims are read aloud on Wednesday — the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks — at the World Trade Center, a half-dozen stacks of stone will quietly salute an untold number of people who aren’t on the list. The granite slabs were installed on the memorial plaza this past spring. They recognize an initially unseen toll of the 2001 attacks: firefighters, police and others who died or fell ill after exposure to toxins unleashed in the wreckage. The unusual addition reflects a memorial that is evolving as the aftermath of the attacks does. And for families like Joanna Reisman’s, the new 9/11 Memorial Glade gives their loved ones a place in the landscape of remembrance at ground zero. A firefighter’s widow, she emphasizes that the losses thousands of families suffered on Sept. 11, 2001, were horrific. “We just have to recognize that there were others, too,” said Reisman, whose 54-year-old husband, Lt. Steven Reisman, searched through the World Trade Center

debris for remains, and then died in 2014 of brain cancer. He was 54. Subtle and sculptural, the memorial glade features six stone pieces inlaid with steel salvaged from trade center steel. They jut from the ground along a tree-lined pathway. Unlike the plaza’s massive waterfall pools memorializing people killed on 9/11 — those whose names are read at anniversary ceremonies — the boulders are not inscribed with the names of those they honour. There is no finite list of them, at least not yet. Instead, nearby signs dedicate the glade “to those whose actions in our time of need led to their injury, sickness, and death,” including first responders, recovery workers, survivors and community members at the attack sites at the trade center, at the Pentagon and near Shanksville, Penn. The collapse of the trade center’s twin towers produced thick dust clouds and fires burned for months in the rubble. Many rescue and recovery workers later developed respiratory and digestive system ailments potentially linked to inhaled and swallowed dust. Some were diagnosed with other illnesses, including cancer. Research continues into whether

those illnesses are tied to 9/11 toxins. A 2018 study did not find higherthan-normal death rates overall among people exposed to the dust and smoke, but researchers have noted more deaths than expected from brain cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and certain other diseases and an unusual number of suicides among rescue and recovery workers. Studies also have suggested that highly exposed workers may face more problems, including somewhat higher death rates and a modestly higher risk of heart trouble, than less-exposed colleagues. More than 51,000 people have applied to a victims compensation fund that makes payments to people with illnesses potentially related to 9/11; it has awarded in excess of $5.5 billion so far. After impassioned advocacy, lawmakers earlier this summer ensured it won’t run out of money. None of that was foreseen when the memorial design was chosen in January 2004. But the selection jury “knew that we’d be picking something that allowed for an evolution of the site,” said member James E. Young, a retired University of Massachusetts Amherst professor. As attention grew to the deaths of ailing 9/11 rescue, recovery and

cleanup workers, some memorials elsewhere began adding their names. But the trade center memorial has a “responsibility — especially where it’s located, on sacred ground — to continue to tell the story,” said John Feal, who lost part of a foot while working as a demolition supervisor there and later founded a charity that maintains the Nesconset memorial. Ground Zero memorial leaders had misgivings at first, memorial CEO Alice Greenwald said. They noted the health problems were documented in the belowground Sept. 11 museum, though it gets far fewer visitors than the memorial plaza. And the leaders felt protective of the memory of people killed on 9/11. Responders and health advocates “could see what we couldn’t see right away ... that this was really something that needed to be commemorated, as much as documented,” Greenwald said. Plans for the $5-million glade, designed by memorial plaza architects Michael Arad and Peter Walker, were ultimately announced in 2017. The traditional image of a memorial is an immutable tribute, literally written in stone — if also potentially susceptible to shifting

views of its subject, as demonstrated by ongoing debate over Confederate statues around the American South. Sometimes, though, monuments adapt to take on more meanings. Some memorials built after one war get expanded or rededicated to include veterans of other wars. A memorial to victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing was destroyed on 9/11 and their names were included in the current memorial. After the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was built in Washington, additions nearby recognized nurses and other women who served, and veterans who died years later from lasting effects of the defoliant Agent Orange, post-traumatic stress disorder or other injuries that initially weren’t recognized. Such memorials speak to a change over time in how, and whom, monuments commemorate, said Kirk Savage, a University of Pittsburgh art and architecture history professor and memorials expert. Rather than a 19th-century leader on a pedestal, newer memorials often acknowledge everyday people’s involvement in historic events and shift focus “from recognizing people that we emulate to people that we grieve for,” he said.

Kamloops remains unbeaten PRE-SEASON RECORD AT 5-0 The Kamloops Blazers are having a pre-season for the ages, compiling a 5-0 record and an enviable goals-for and goalsagainst margin as they wrapped up a slate of three games on the weekend at the Langley Events Centre. Kamloops has defeated Victoria 9-1, Kelowna 5-3, Prince George 7-1, Victoria 6-4 and Vancouver 5-1 for a GF/ GA ratio of 32-10. The Blazers have five players in the Western Hockey League’s top 10 pre-season scorers, with Logan Stankoven leading the way with 10 points. Orrin Centazzo and Zane Franklin are tied for second, with nine points each, while Sean Strange and Matthew Seminoff have six points apiece. Kamloops goaltender Dylan Garand is tied for the league lead in wins, with two. The Blazers will wrap up the pre-season this weekend with a homeand-home series against Kelowna — at Sandman Centre this Friday (7 p.m.) and in Kelowna this Saturday (7 p.m.). Kamloops will open the regular season at home on Friday, Sept. 20, when the Spokane Chiefs are at Sandman Centre for a 7 p.m. game.

Broncos still searching for first win of season KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTWA Kamloops Broncos’ quarterback Nicholas Nica was pressured all game as the Westshore Rebels rolled to a 45-0 win in BC Football Conference action on Saturday night.

The Kamloops Broncos fell to 0-5 on the season in BC Football Conference play with a 45-0 loss to the visiting Westshore Rebels of Vancouver Island on Saturday night. The game at Warner Rentals Field at Hillside Stadium was delayed for 90 minutes while an intense thunder and lightning storm passed through Kamloops. Westshore, which improved to 4-1 on the season with the shutout victory, led 17-0 after the first quarter, 31-0 at halftime and 45-0 after three quarters. Westshore rolled up 370 net yards on offence, while

Kamloops clocked in with -11 yards. One bright spot for the Broncos came in the return game, with Kaden Cook bringing back seven punts for 70 yards, including a 23-yard return. Cook also handled kickoff returns, amassing 114 yards on four plays, including a ramble for 34 yards. Kamloops punter Michael Lefaivre was busy, launching 13 punts for a total of 378 yards, the longest being 40 yards. Kamloops has scored 62 points this season, while surrendering 262 points in those five games. The Broncos have five games remaining in the 2019 season — the next two at home

and the final three on the road. The Okanagan Sun will visit Kamloops on Saturday, Sept, 14, for a 2 p.m. kickoff at Hillside Stadium. The Broncos opened the season in Kelowna on Aug. 3, dropping a 26-3 decision to the Sun. The Vancouver Island Raiders of Nanaimo will visit Kamloops on Saturday, Sept. 21, with kickoff slated for 6 p.m. The Raiders defeated visiting Kamloops 47-17 on Aug. 17. Kamloops will finish the season with three consecutive games on the road: at Chilliwack on Sept. 28, at Westshore on Oct. 5 and at Langley on Oct. 19.

Puppies, pints and soccer on tap at Hillside Stadium TODD SULLIVAN

STAFF REPORTER

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

Local soccer fans will have the opportunity this Friday to take in two TRU WolfPack soccer games with their best friends. Unlike most games, that best friend can include your dog. Petland has teamed up with the WolfPack to present Puppies and Pints on Friday at Hillside Stadium from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. “It’s pretty unique, for sure, and something that requires significant levels of approval,” said Curtis Atkinson, director of athletics and recreation at Thompson Rivers University. “But when the opportunity to partner with Petland came up, we thought it would be a great fit.” The event will feature a VIP (or VI-PUP) section for people to enjoy the game with their leashed canine buddies. There will also be a beer garden, with beverages provided by Iron Road Brewing, a bouncy castle for kids and a food truck. In addition, the first 300 students to arrive will receive T-shirts sponsored by Mr. Mike’s. There will also be a special activity just for those with dogs — a doggie race at halftime,

with an entry fee by donation and all funds raised going to Kamloops service and therapy dogs. “It’s a big homecoming,” said Miranda Pham, events co-ordinator for the WolfPack. “It’s going to be big because school’s back and people are going to be excited. It’s going to be very exciting and fun.” Two games will be played during the Puppies and Pints event, with the TRU women’s soccer team facing the MacEwan University Griffins of Edmonton at 5:30 p.m., followed by the TRU men’s soccer squad playing the University of Saskatchewan Huskies at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door

for adults, with kids 10 and under admitted free. Free adult tickets can be picked up in advance at Petland, at Notre Dame Drive and Dalhousie Drive, a block south of the university. “They’ve been an amazing partner for us to work with on this,” Atkinson said. “It’s just sort of an exciting community event where we’re inviting the public who may not normally come to a game, with an opportunity to bring their dogs to the event and hopefully enjoy a nice September evening. “The soccer action will be very high level.” Friday’s forecast calls for a mix of sun and clouds, with a high of 24 C.

What kids can do in the face of bullying

any adults may recall being bullied or witnessing bullying when they were in school.

Despite that, it’s important that adults, including parents and educators, not see bullying as an inevitable part of growing up. The effects of bullying can

be severe, affecting those involved — including the bullied, the bullies and those who merely witness bullying — long after their school days have ended. Bullying has been linked to various negative outcomes, mental-health issues, substance abuse and suicide. When taking steps to combat bullying, parents and educators should not overlook the benefits of enlisting children in their efforts. Kids can be great allies in the fight against bullying and the following are some ways adults can work with youngsters who want to stop bullying: • Teaching kids to respect others: It is important to teach children to treat everyone, including other children, with respect. Parents can teach kids to pause before saying or doing something that can be harmful to someone else. Bullying inflicts physical and emotional pain on its victims, so teaching kids to recognize that words can be just as harmful as fists may encourage them to think twice before saying something mean to a classmate. Children should be taught to walk away from a situation to watch television, play a video game or engage in another activity, rather than saying or doing something hurtful. • What kids being bullied can do: Kids being bullied also can employ certain strategies to overcome bullying.

Children should look at bullies and tell them to stop in a calm, clear voice. Kids should not fight back, but instead walk away and stay away before finding an adult who can stop the bullying on the spot. Encouraging students to confide in adults they trust also can help them overcome bullying and the feelings of loneliness that bullying can elicit. Trusted adults can help children devise a plan to stop the bullying. Most bullying happens when adults are not around, so staying near adults and other children can help kids avoid situations where they might be vulnerable to bullies. • What witnesses to bullying can do: Bullying can have a negative impact on children who witness bullying, even if they aren’t the victims. Adults can encourage children to speak to trusted adults and to report instances of bullying. In addition, children should be encouraged to be kind to children who are being bullied, inviting them to sit with them on the bus or in the lunch room and engaging them in conversations about topics that interest them. Bullying affects children whether they’re being bullied, doing the bullying or witnessing it. But bullying can be overcome if adults and children work together and keep lines of communication open at all times.

With broken hearts and a river of tears we announce the sudden passing of Don Girbav at the young age of 63 years. He is survived by his three sons Scott, Stephen and Sheldon of Chilliwack, his mother Doreen, his sisters Brenda, Darlene (Ed), Cherry and Carla. He was uncle to Amber, Tiana (Brandon), Brayden (Jenna), Brandon (Laurel) and great-uncle to Presley, Rylee, Drew, Sullivan, Keala and Elia. He is predeceased by his father Clarence and nephew Tyler. Don was born in Prince Rupert, BC on January 22, 1956 and he lived and moved throughout BC with his parents and siblings until 1963 when they settled in Kamloops. He spent many years as a meat cutter where he moved throughout BC. After years as a meat cutter, he started up Don’s Docks, building environmentally friendly docks in the Shuswap and Okanagan areas. He also designed and built his own “tiny house” as it was called and which he lived in, using solar panels to provide power. He spent the past 20 plus years doing this and was proud to fight for the protection of the land on which we lived. He said it was our duty to look after the earth. He loved to be with nature and his recreation was snowmobiling, fishing and tending the three big greenhouses he built. Don was a kind-hearted man full of love for his sons, his mom and all his family. He always tried to do as much as he could for all of them. Sometimes getting his point across to his family and friends was frustrating for him but nonetheless he kept at it. Whatever he did, he “did it his way.” You will be forever missed, never forgotten! In lieu of flowers, Don would ask that you please be kind to our planet! No service or celebration of life at Don’s request.

“I did it my way”

Make my hands respect the things that you have made And my ears sharp to hear your voice Make me wise, So that I may know the things you have taught your children The lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock Make me strong, Not to be superior to my brothers But to be able to fight my greatest enemy — myself Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes So that when life fades, as the fading sunset My spirit will come to you without shame.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Donald Garnet Glover

In Loving Memory

November 18, 1948 – September 4, 2019

Jeanne Gagne

The family of Don regret to announce his passing on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 after a long battle and complications as a result of Parkinson’s disease. Don was born in Kelowna to Garnet ‘Gar’ and Mary Geraldine ‘Gerry’ Glover in November 1948 but soon after moved to Kamloops where the family roots are strong and he resided all his life. Don was with young onset Parkinson’s disease and endured many years of frustration, but, always with humour and his positive nature, not letting it get him down. Sports such as powder skiing at Tod Mountain, now Sun Peaks, including heli-skiing in Blue River, golf, hockey and bike riding were all a life style Don truly enjoyed. Having to give up his camaraderie of senior men’s hockey was discouraging but lead him to hours of roller blading at MacArthur Island to maintain his fitness level he knew was so very important. In addition to golfing with friends and family in his later years which he truly look forward to. Don’s employment history was solely with the BC Building Corporation crew as a steam engineer starting at Tranquille Sanatorium then moving to the downtown BC government site on Columbia Street. He transitioned to landscaping provincial City of Kamloops facilities and was very proud of the productions he produced. Don’s skills included ‘if you can’t buy it, build it’ mentality and he produced many practical items in addition to his artistic metal and carpentry pieces as an aside. Survived by his children Jolene and Drew, his sisters and brother Carolann (Brett), Constance, Reg, Debra (Renato) and Lorraine and predeceased by his father Garnet ‘Gar’ and most recently his mother Gerry. He has numerous nieces and nephews who shared in his family’s gatherings and holiday celebrations together when they could do so. Thanks go to his doctors and the staff at the Kamloops Seniors Village along with those at Overlander Extended Care, his previous care home. Special thanks to Don’s friends who golfed, visited and supported him over the years. For those who can, donations to the BC Parkinson’s Society in memory of Don and his hopes for improved treatment and potentially a cure would be most appreciated. The annual Parkinson’s Walk support was especially important to Don through his earlier years. Dad – you always made us all laugh right along with you. Love you always.

With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our Mom and Nan, Jeanne Cecilia Gagne (née Vandendriessche) on August 15, 2019. Jeanne was predeceased by her husband Keith Gagne and two sons Kevin and Kirk.

In Loving Memory of Regina Henderson October 7, 1936 – September 11, 2014

She will be greatly missed by her son Keith (Diana), her daughters Kim Krasselt (Brian), Kathy Aplas (Dave), Karen Williamson (Dave), 15 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, sister Tracy (Bal) as well as her nieces, nephews, friends, and special friend Ed Walsh. Jeanne was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, July 4, 1925. One of 7 children, she was especially close to her identical twin sister Joan. Her family moved to Kamloops in 1940. Jeanne graduated in Victoria from St Joseph’s Hospital, School of Nursing in 1946, working most of her life at Royal Inland Hospital and community nursing. She met Keith (husband of 62 years) in Kamloops and they married in 1948 and raised six children. She spent 5 years with her family in England from 1959 to 1964 while her husband pursued his newspaper career. She was a wonderful mother and nan, a caring nurse, avid gardener and an expert at knitting, sewing, needlepoint and many other crafts. Mom you were the best and the kindness, love, and generosity that you shared with your family and others will never be uforgotten or matched. A Mass of Christian Service will be held at 9:00 am on September 14, 2019 at Sacred Heart Cathedral. The Reverend Father Normandeau, Celebrant.

Our Angel Much Loved and not forgotten. Archie, James, Tami and the Henderson Family

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in memory of Jeanne to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at cysticfibrosis.ca Condolences may be made to www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Celebration of life is being held on September 15, 2019 at 6:30 pm at Kamloops Seniors Village. Please bring your Don stories and share with his family and friends.

In Loving Memory of Sheila Mae Sparrow

Jonathon Michael Anderson February 23,1999 - September 4,2019

October 20, 1940 ~ September 11, 2008

11 Years

Wayne Robert Corbin Wayne Robert Corbin’s big heart stopped and he went on to his heavenly home to be with his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Lord welcomed him home on Saturday, August 31, 2019, at the age of 70. Wayne has found peace at last. In fact, he was very surprised he lived so long! A very big thank you to all the medical personnel involved in his care!

We seldom ask for miracles, But today just one would do. To have the back door open, And see you walking through. A million times we’ve missed you, A million times we’ve cried; If love could have saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a memory, That no one else can fill. Always and forever Your Memory and Spirit will be with us. Our love, Lynn, Shai, Lizz

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Jonathon Michael Anderson at Kelowna General Hospital on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 following a battle with testicular cancer. Jonathon was surrounded by his immediate family and girlfriend Talor when he passed. He is survived by his parents Derek and Tara Anderson, sister Elizabeth and brother Damian along with many extended family. A Celebration of Life will be held at Savona Community Hall on September 14th, 2019 at 11:00 am. Jonathon was a lover of life, never taking it too seriously and always spreading joy and laughter to the individuals he encountered. He loved all outdoor activities and spending time with the ones he loved. Our family wishes to send a special thanks to the medical professionals at the BC Cancer Agency and Kelowna General Hospital for their compassionate care.

Wayne was born and raised in a small town on BC’s Central Coast called Ocean Falls. He never lost his love for that place and made many trips back there to boat and fish.

Celebration of Life Ronald Wade McAfee 1935 - 2019

He joined Army Cadets in Ocean Falls to help kids learn about the outdoors and then moved to Kamloops (because his wife said so) and continued with it. Cadets was his life! He leaves behind his wife Moe Danshin, sons Kyle (Natalie), Tyler (Amanda) and grandchildren Kaycee, Tyson, Camryn and Emma; as well as many other family members, friends and neighbours – and a jug of milk! A Celebration of Wayne’s life will be held on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at 1:00 pm, at the Coast Hotel on Rogers Way; Ballroom ABC. In lieu of cards, gifts or flowers, please consider a donation to the Kamloops Army Cadet Corps or the Legion. Thank you. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

Please join us in a Celebration of Ron’s Life on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 1:30 pm at the Desert Gardens Community Centre, 540 Seymour St, Kamloops, BC.
