Claim stake has couple calling for law change JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Knutsford couple Marie Reimer and Doug Hallat purchased 50 acres of “peace and quiet” on Simms Road, unaware of a possible gold deposit beneath their private acreage — and a claim staked on it.

A Knutsford couple unaware of a possible gold deposit beneath their private acreage is calling for updates to the B.C. Mineral Tenure Act after a stranger showed up at their home last month to stake a claim — reminding them of the gold rush days of the 1800s. “It’s unbelievable,” Marie Reimer said, objecting to the claim and calling B.C. laws “antiquated. “For hardly any money [to register a claim online], you can go in and wreak havoc on people’s lives.” About two years ago, Reimer and partner Doug Hallat purchased 50 acres of “peace and quiet and tranquility and nature” on Simms Road in Knutsford, located in the southernmost reaches of city limits. Reimer said they moved there to escape the hustle and bustle of the Lower Mainland. On the afternoon of Sept. 6, however, Reimer and Hallat were sitting outside having a drink when a man drove up and notified the couple he had papers staking a claim to mineral beneath their property’s soil. He told them there are plans to

explore and use the property as a teaching site for Thompson Rivers University geology students. “It was a surprise to me. It completely blindsided, shocked,’” Reimer said. “And then, you know, he starts saying, ‘We’ve given you notice. Now we’re going to start coming onto your property. We’re going to start prospecting.’ He even said, ‘There’s an old gold mine on your property. We want to check it out.’ “And I’m thinking, ‘You’ve got to be kidding. A mine? Here? You’ve got to be kidding me!’” According to provincial laws, however, the unexpected scenario is legal. Kamloops Exploration Group president Jane McCaw said rights to a land’s surface and what lies beneath are generally granted separately. She said the situation is not unique to British Columbia, but practised similarly across the country. “Basically, everyone assumes that when they buy a property, they own what’s underneath it,” McCaw said. “But in very, very rare cases is that true. For the most part, the Crown owns all undersurface rights.” See KEG, A4

Six charges against TRU instructor COUNTS INCLUDE ASSAULT, THREATS, UNLAWFUL CONFINEMENT TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Thompson Rivers University business instructor who markets himself as a leading social media influencer is facing a raft of serious criminal charges, including unlawful confinement, assault, two counts of assault with a weapon and two counts of uttering threats. Julio Viskovich, 38, is facing the six charges, each of which stems from an alleged April 27

incident in Kamloops. Viskovich teaches marketing at TRU’s School of Business and has a large social media following. According to his Twitter bio, Viskovich is a “Forbes Top 30 influencer” and one of the people who “helped build $1B biz @ hootsuite.” Last month, Viskovich was honoured by Ontario’s Nipissing University with an alumni award. TRU spokesperson Darshan Lindsay told KTW the university is aware of the charges against

Teacher faces gun-related charges TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops teacher is facing criminal charges after allegedly pointing a shotgun at a woman during a domestic altercation. Todd Graham has been charged with pointing a firearm, using a firearm in a careless manner and assault with a weapon stemming from an incident on Sept. 28. Details of the allegations against Graham, 49, are protected by a court-ordered ban on pub-

lication of any evidence heard at his bail hearing. Graham, who has no previous criminal history, is a longtime teacher at NorKam secondary. The complainant is also a teacher at a city high school. Graham had been in custody since his arrest on Sept. 28. He appeared briefly in Kamloops provincial court on Monday for a bail hearing. Wearing a red prison-issued T-shirt, he was led into the courtroom by sheriffs and watched the hearing from the prisoner’s box. Graham was released on bail

Pursuant to Sections 26(3) and 94 of the Community Charter, S.B.C. 2003, Ch. 26, the City of Kamloops (the “City”) proposes to lease to the Provincial Rental Housing Corporation (the “Tenant”) land located at 440 MacKenzie Avenue (the “Property”), legally described as: PID: 030-882-672 Legal: Lot 3, District Lot 255, Kamloops Division Yale District, Plan EPP94124 The City proposes to lease the Property to the Tenant for a term of sixty (60) years with the intention of addressing ongoing housing needs in Kamloops in connection with BC Housing’s Rapid Response to Homelessness Program. The Tenant shall pay to the City a one-time rent payment of $10. For more information, please contact David W. Freeman, RI(BC), Assistant Development, Engineering, and Sustainability Director/ Real Estate Manager, at 250-828-3548.

on a number of strict conditions, including orders barring him from drinking and possessing weapons. He is also prohibited from having any contact with the complainant. School District No. 73 spokeswoman Diana Skoglund said administrators are following the court process, but she would not comment on Graham’s status as an employee. “We are aware of the incident,” she said. Graham is slated to return to court on Oct. 31.

KEG president says regulations are in place From A1

NOTICE OF DISPOSITION

Viskovich, but is not in a position to discuss individual employee situations due to privacy legislation. Lindsay said Viskovich is still employed by the university, which she said has processes in place to assess such matters and take action as deemed appropriate. She said she couldn’t disclose if he has been suspended or is still actively teaching. Viskovich is slated to stand trial in Kamloops provincial court on April 2, 2020.

For the most part, McCaw said, mining isn’t bad, with strict regulations in place governing how the industry does business. Surface rights are governed by the B.C. Land Act and undersurface rights fall under the B.C. Mineral Tenure Act. McCaw noted the laws, for example, require notification prior to entering private property and prioritize rights in situations that include homes and otherwise. “If there’s a house and you want to drill, you can’t do it,” McCaw said. “If there is an orchard, you can’t do it. If there’s a barn, you can’t do it. So if he walked up to this house and said he’s going to set up a drill right beside their house, not going to happen. It just won’t. That is something that the government would definitely be watching for.” About 10 per cent of the province is staked, McCaw said, though she added she is unaware how many claims have been staked in Kamloops, which she described as a “mining town.” McCaw advised anyone looking to purchase property to investigate what may or may not lie beneath. An online mapping tool, which shows mineral titles in specific areas, can be found online at mtonline.gov.bc.ca. The subsurface of neighbouring Knutsford properties have apparently also been claimed. Kathleen Doi has owned more than 20 acres on Simms Road since the early 1970s and shares a

fence with Reimer. Doi, however, is not concerned about the claim beneath her property. “I didn’t think too much because, when we first moved up here, there was some claim and people running around and nothing happened,” she said. The province noted that in many cases, the landowner, mineral title holder and government work together to reach an agreement. Doi has outlined a number of conditions she would like satisfied, including liability insurance for those who enter her property and accommodation of cattle, which sometimes roam her land, which is leased by ranchers. She also wants her home’s privacy preserved. Reimer said surface owners are usually compensated, but she cited a case in which a family was given $60,000 for mining of dichotomous earth on their land in the Kamloops area — compensation she argued was minimal for what was given up. Reimer said she feels as though her property is no longer hers and wants the provincial laws to change, calling them “ridiculous” and “antiquated.” “I had no idea that someone could stake a claim,” Reimer said. “If I had known, I would have staked it myself.” KTW did not hear back from Kamloops-SouthThompson MLA Todd Stone before deadline, nor were calls to two men identified to have attended Simms Road and staked claims — David Pollard and Bruce Perry — returned before press time.

City planning to take over St. Andrews Society managing heritage site opposes move; city councillor pushing for review JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The city is planning to take over operations of St. Andrews on the Square, the oldest civic building in Kamloops, but the decision is not supported by the non-profit society that has managed the downtown heritage building for nearly a quarter-century. And, amid the outcry, a city councillor is calling for a review of the decision to determine what the move will cost taxpayers. Since 1995, the Kamloops Heritage Society has managed the city-owned building at Seymour Street and Second Avenue. The society has also restored the facility, which was built in 1887. Society president Peggy Broad said a letter from the mayor served notice to the society, with reasons including the society’s inability to keep up repairs and a desire to move the facility to an electronic booking system. The society was also told by the city that the building is underutilized, a claim disputed by Broad, who told KTW an event is held in the space almost daily, from funerals to weddings to meetings to yoga to indoor markets. According to the society, the city’s plan will result in removal of the building’s longtime caretaker, Mel Formanski. Without a caretaker, Broad said, seniors booking funerals will be forced to do so online and couples planning weddings will not have someone to help with their matrimonial plans. Furthermore, Broad credited Formanski for saving and restoring the old church and touted her wealth of historical knowledge about the building as something that would also be lost. “It will impact the building and the community quite substantially,” Broad said. A post on the society’s Facebook page further highlights the society’s lack of support for the decision and calls for the public to reach out to city councillors on the matter.

Agreeing to disagree

KTW FILE PHOTO Since 1995, the Kamloops Heritage Society has managed city-owned St. Andrews on the Square at Seymour Street and Second Avenue. The society has also restored the facility, which was built in 1887. A letter from the city to the society says the city will assume control of the heritage property next year, though the cost to taxpayers has not yet been revealed.

It will impact the community “quite substantially.”

— Peggy Broad KAMLOOPS HERITAGE SOCIETY PRESIDENT

“We feel that this building deserves continued stewardship by the society,” the Facebook post states. “We are a self-sustaining, notfor-profit operating a positive cash flow. This means there are no staffing or running costs incurred by the city. “The city will no longer have an on-site representative to set up weddings/events, answer questions about bookings and the building or maintain a daily presence in the neighbourhood.” Coun. Denis Walsh chairs the finance committee. He said the committee was tasked in the summer with reviewing behind closed doors the city’s service agreements and decided at that time not to renew its contract with Kamloops Heritage Society, following a recommendation from staff. He said that since the decision

was made, more information has come to light and he is now calling for a review and business case to better understand what the decision will cost taxpayers. Broad told KTW the society raised money to invest into the church restoration and operates on a shoestring budget just to break even, in order to keep the venue affordable to the public. “I’m hoping to have a conversation with fellow council members and the mayor when they’re back from Uji, Japan, and see if anybody else has the same concerns,” Walsh told KTW. A city delegation is currently overseas, visiting Kamloops’ sister city. Coun.

Following news of the city’s plan to take over operation of St. Andrews on the Square, the city on Tuesday issued a statement. It said the Kamloops Heritage Society board asked the city five years ago to develop a succession plan for the property. “The board recognized at that time that its operational model was not sustainable and that the financial burden of operating, maintaining and repairing this heritage property would be too great for the society,” the city states. The society’s president, Peggy Broad, said she was not president at that time, but disputes the city claim. She said the board asked the city to maintain the facility — but not operate it. “We would prefer to run it ourselves,” she said. The city statement added that: “Under the city’s operation, the facility will receive any required repairs and remain available for bookings by the public in the same way as the Old Courthouse, which is another heritage property that the city maintains and operates.”

said he would support a second look. Broad said the society plans to meet with city staff on Friday, Oct. 11. She hopes the decision will change prior to the city’s scheduled takeover in six months’ time. If the decision is final, however, Broad said the society would not likely collapse, but would pull out the pews and other church contents it owns and work with other groups in town.

B.C. MLAs returned to Victoria on Monday for a new session of the legislature and Kamloops’ representatives are focused on a number of issues. Following a mid-September shuffling of the B.C. Liberal shadow cabinet, Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone is now critic for housing and municipal affairs. In his new role, Stone said, he wants to hold the provincial government to account on its commitment to create 114,000 new units of affordable housing in 10 years. The province has said there are more than 22,000 governmentfunded residences either completed or in process, but Stone claims the housing ministry’s numbers indicate only about 2,300 have actually been opened since the NDP formed government in July 2017. He added that some projects are re-announcements of projects started under the B.C. Liberal government. Stone said his party has also heard claims that supportive housing projects are lacking in the level of wraparound supports. “If we don’t ensure the supports are there when these folks need the supports, then we’re simply warehousing people, we’re not helping people to get better,” he said. Stone said a focus of his role will be travelling around the province to meet with locals govern-

ments and housing partners to understand what level of support people were told they would have and what is actually being provided. Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Peter Milobar remains the B.C. Liberal environment critic and said he intends to continue pressing the government to reveal what will make up the final 25 per cent of emission reductions in its Clean BC plan. The B.C. Liberal caucus kicked off the first day of the session with questions regarding the ongoing RCMP investigation into former Minister of Citizen Services Jinny Sims, who resigned on Friday after the probe was made public. “We’re going to continue to hold [Premier] John Horgan, in particular, accountable for defending the former minister for months and months and months whenever we brought forward questions about allegations that were coming to our attention,” Stone said. Sims’ former constituency assistant, Kate Gillie, emailed senior officials in Horgan’s office in March, alleging, among other things, that Sims wrote visa application endorsements for some Pakistani citizens in exchange for promised campaign donations, and that some of those people were on a U.S. security watch list. The allegations prompted an investigation by Horgan’s chief of staff Geoff Meggs, which Horgan has said concluded there was no wrongdoing. Milobar said the government is refusing to provide the party with

Meggs’ report. “We’re saying show us the report so we can see what work was actually done or not,” Milobar said. Prosecution spokesperson Dan McLaughlin would not comment or confirm on Monday whether the police investigation is related to Gillie’s allegations. Meanwhile, Stone said the Liberals will also continue to demand that the government reinstate the Rural Dividend Fund, which was used to support the government’s $69-million aid package for communities impacted by mill closures and curtailments. Stone also expects ICBC will figure prominently in the session as MLAs have heard from constituents facing higher insurance premiums given recent changes to how the Crown corporation sets premiums. He also expects vaping to be a key issue, noting he has called for Health Minister Adrian Dix to ban flavoured vape juice and make money available for educational awareness in high schools. Stone said the timing of B.C. Green Leader Andrew Weaver’s announcement on Monday that he will not run for re-election in 2021 and will resign as leader is “curious,” given the Sims investigation. “It’s a well-established political strategy to throw a shiny object in the middle of the table when there’s a bad news day facing a government,” Stone said. — with files from the Vancouver Sun

Sagebrush Theatre re-opens this week as Dracula takes the stage MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Repairs to the roof of the Sagebrush theatre are now complete — just in time for the Western Canada Theatre Mainstage season opening play Dracula: The Bloody Truth. In February, a cracked roof truss was discovered during a routine technical inspection, leading to the closure of the 685seat facility, which is adjacent to South Kamloops secondary at Ninth Avenue and Munro Street in South Kamloops. The roof now sports two new steel columns adjacent to the walls inside the theatre and an additional two steel columns tucked behind the proscenium,

all of which is connected to a steel system that supports the existing and repaired beams. “The local cultural community is much relieved to see the venue return to operation this fall,” said Evan Klassen, Western Canada Theatre’s managing director. “The Sagebrush Theatre is very much back in business and our 2019-20 season will be our busiest yet.” Late last month, the Kamloops-Thompson school district said repair work was still on budget, at $900,000, a bill not covered by insurance. Local development company A&T Project Developments Inc. was hired to make the repairs. Audiences may also notice a few improvements to amenities at the school district-owned

theatre this year, including new seating in the lobby, a hearingassist system, expanded concession offerings, compostable eco-friendly beverage cups, a new bottle-filling water fountain and reserved limited mobility seating. During the course of the season, additional capital improvements are planed to be completed, including new carpeting throughout the theatre, new handrails for the aisles and jump seats for accessible seating areas. Dracula: The Bloody Truth is running from Thursday, Oct. 10, through Saturday, Oct. 19. Sagebrush Theatre event information is available through the Kamloops Live!

THE CAMPAIGN GETS EVEN LOUDER

I

f the winner was the leader who yelled louder than his or her opponents and spoke over the words of others, Monday’s federal election leadership debate would have had a few victors. Aside from perhaps NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet, the debate was dominated by the aggressive interruptions and accusation of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, Green Leader Elizabeth May and People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier. Of course, finding a format that does not feature such cacophony is not difficult — heck, KTW did it during last year’s municipal election and KTW, Radio NL and the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce managed to do it again on Tuesday night at TRU. And those two forum formats featured more candidates than did the federal leaders’ debate. Perhaps the powers-that-be at the national level figure a verbal wrestling match, in which noise replaces thought, is what the audience wants in this age of millisecond attention spans and bitesized news briefs. Still, despite the challenging format, the six leaders did manage to get crucial face time with the electorate and, despite the criticism of such events, they can move the needle in the polls, be it by a nudge or a grandfather clock pendulum swing. The latter was seen in the great debate of 1991, when little-known B.C. Liberal Leader Gordon Wilson delivered one line — “This reminds me of the legislature and here’s a classic example of why nothing ever gets done in the province of British Columbia.” — that delivered his party an astounding 17 seats in the legislature. This week’s debate did not feature such a momentous occasion, though it is widely accepted that Singh, above all others, likely impressed voters the most with his calm demeanour, quick wit, humour and even keel. How that will play out on Oct. 21 is anybody’s guess as the fortunes of candidates and parties can change hourly in an election campaign.

Still facing the storm

I

t’s hard to get the sense of just how big something is when you’re right in the middle of it. On July 31, 1987, a massive tornado passed right through Edmonton, killing dozens of people on its way through. My family lived on the other side of town, far from the main tornado. But a second funnel cloud started to form near us. When we saw the entire sky turn green and start to circle itself, we ran for the basement. It sounded like the end of the world was going on above us as we huddled there. But as the wind subsided, we emerged a half-hour later to a lawn covered in golf-ball sized chunks of hail — not a sign in the sky of what we thought would be total disaster. Sometimes, when I look at my chosen trade of community media, I think about that. There’s no doubt we are in the midst of a storm. Will it sweep us aside or pass us by? This week, as we celebrate National Newspaper Week, it’s a good time to contemplate that storm and our place in it. When people ask me how the newspaper business is doing — and when they do, they often use that same tone of voice you hear when you’re asked about an aging relative who’s been in the hospital — I usually answer with one word: “Exciting!” Yes, sometimes I may add, “And terrifying!” to that, depending on the day. But even on those days, it’s an amazing time to be in our line of work. We’ve got more readers than

ever — nearly nine out of 10 Canadians read community media between print and digital every week, according to the latest research from News Media Canada. And we have more ways than ever to reach them. When breaking news happens in our community, we can write a story, post it to our website and link to it on social media, add some video and maybe even make a podcast about it, while at the same time printing thousands of copies of it on recycled trees and put it at thousands of doorsteps the next morning. The problem is how it all gets paid for. The local advertising dollars that support local journalism are being sucked up by two massive foreign corporations — Facebook and Google. Between them, they take 75 per cent of the online advertising revenue in Canada. There’s no doubt the power of Facebook and Google have to reach local people in the community. But you won’t see a reporter

from Google in your city council chambers. And Facebook won’t sponsor your community’s campaign to build that new arts centre. And it’s not just our business model that’s been disrupted. The local businesses that support us with their advertising also face disruption from that same media. Ask any retailer who has seen someone come into their store to look at a product, then pull out their phone and order that product from Amazon right in front of them. The definition of community has changed dramatically. It used to be defined simply by geography. The internet and the rise of social media has redefined community to be anyone, connected anywhere by shared interest. But geographic community — where we choose to live — still matters. And it needs support. Reading local, and making deliberate choices to shop local, is how to do it. That’s our shelter from the storm. So, on this National Newspaper Week, please go to our new website, newspapersmatter.ca, to sign a pledge of support and send a message — to Canadian businesses, to advertisers, to all levels of government, to newspaper journalists and to all Canadians — that what we do matters, now more than ever. Thanks for your support and for the privilege of supporting our community by telling its stories. Tim Shoults is operations manager of Aberdeen Publishing, which publishes Kamloops This Week and seven other community newspapers in B.C. and Alberta.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

ADD COMMON SENSE TO DEBATE

KUDOS TO CITY BYLAWS FOR ITS STEWARDSHIP Editor: I am an avid user of the Rivers Trail and I cycle daily from Brocklehurst to Tranquille Farms. I was appalled when I came across a queensized bed mattress someone had dumped just beyond Cinnamon Ridge. When I returned home, I told my husband how upsetting it was to see such an eyesore on a wellloved and beautiful city landmark. We do not have a truck, otherwise we would have picked it up ourselves. My husband suggested we call the city and see what could possibly be done at its end. We received a call back from bylaws and were told they would send someone out to pick up the mattress. Not only did the officer remove that eyesore, but also another foam mattress that was dumped a kilometre down the road. Thank you very much to the bylaw officers who responded and took care of the matter. I am a strong believer that residents, working with our city, can have a positive impact on our environment. Marguerite Dodds Kamloops

Editor: Re: Tom Fletcher’s column of Sept. 25 (‘Fact-free climate strike spreads’): Like Fletcher, I am not a climate change denier (though he has been so accused). I think common sense tells us the burning of fossil fuels is a substantive cause of global warming. I think we also agree that sensible, prudent steps can and should be taken to protect our environment, including research and promotion of alternative fuels, protection of species at risk, protection of remaining wild areas and restoration of habitat. Fletcher’s issue is the capturing of popular thought on the environmental issue by the publishing of irresponsible information and imagery. We are being manipulated by envirocorporates who have turned what should be one of our most important public initiatives into a shameful exercise of enviroorganizations that misdirect and misinform in the true tradition of the corporate entities they so smugly attack. The time has come for common sense in dealing with all the legitimate environmental issues we face:

1. Let’s finally recognize our greatest environmental challenge — population growth. Regardless of what fuel you use, 7.5-billion people will and are destroying the environment. Let’s start spending our foreign aid on promoting birth control and education in the developing world. 2. If carbon taxes are here to stay, let’s stop being hypocrites by no longer putting the funds into general revenue. It is arguable as to whether the tax limits consumption, but it is unarguable that the tax proceeds can and should be used for environmental purposes. Carbon tax revenue should go toward funding our fisheries and wildlife officers to enforce the law (federal fisheries officers can barely afford to put gas in their boats), rebuilding salmon and other wildlife habitat, purchasing commercial fishing licences and placing a five-year, full-cycle moratorium on salmon fishing, funding the retooling of coastal community economies from fishing to eco-tourism and purchasing and closing open-net fish farming and replacing it with landlocked fish farming. 3. Continue to expand the true remaining wild areas as permanent parks and

enforce the activities and boundaries in these areas. 4. Recognize that our civilization is 30 to 50 years away from stopping the use of fossil fuels and that the developing world will continue to consume oil and gas until a cheaper, plentiful, viable alternative is presented. In the meantime, our oil and gas is as good as anyone else’s and, if the developing world does not use ours, it will use someone else’s. The taxes and royalties generated from our gas and oil sales pay for our country’s infrastructure, hospitals and other critical institutions, which are in woeful neglect. Carbon tax proceeds and a portion of royalty revenue should be divided up amongst Canadians to fund technology initiatives to end our reliance on fossil fuels and to target immediate needs, including addiction treatment and water supply on First Nations land. These are only a few ideas meant to start a meaningful dialogue and end the pop culture imagery that has dominated what needs to be a very serious discussion. Findlay (Frank) Quinn Kamloops

FORESTRY CRISIS WAS PREDICTABLE, PREVENTABLE Editor: As a longtime forest activist who once worked in the forest industry, the province should know the closure of sawmills and loss of jobs is the future we warned about. For decades, we have cautioned that the province’s forests

are being overcut and the result will be degraded ecosystems, loss of species, damage to fresh water supplies and job losses. The industry is the architect of its own demise. While forest workers are but pawns in this travesty, the forest companies have taken their well-

subsidized profits and invested the money into sawmills in the U.S., where tree plantations grow many times faster than they do here. British Columbia’s forests have been ravaged and, while citizens are left with the mess, the corporations will continue to

A priest accused of sexual assault in Kamloops in the 1970s was described as being “promiscuous” and a “playboy” by his former bishop during pre-trial proceedings for a B.C. Supreme Court civil trial, a judge heard on Monday. Former archbishop Adam Exner, who at the time of the allegations was the bishop of Kamloops and is expected to testify next week, made the comments during an examination for discovery in the case of Rosemary Anderson, who claims that Father Erlindo Molon sexually assaulted her over a period of months in 1976 and 1977. Anderson’s lawsuit, filed in December 2016, also names the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Kamloops as a defendant, alleging that Exner, despite being aware of a pattern of alleged sexual misconduct involving Molon, was negligent and failed to adequately protect her and other parishioners at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in North Kamloops. Exner, 90, who was archbishop of Vancouver from 1991 to 2004, admitted during the pre-trial discovery that early in 1976, “people” came to him to report concerns about Molon’s sexual involvement with one or more parishioners and that he felt he had to do something about him, Sandra Kovacs, a lawyer for Anderson, said Monday. The rumours about Molon began shortly after he was active as a priest in the parish and “kept coming,” Exner said, noting

she was grieving the death of her father at the time and sought spiritual guidance from Molon, but that the priest took advantage of her and breached the boundaries of the priest-parishioner relationship. Anderson said Molon “raped” her between 75 and 100 times, the attacks happening at the rectory and in her apartment. “During the period of the assaults, Ms. Anderson says she felt frozen,” Kovacs said. “Trapped. Coerced. Manipulated. Threatened. She had no idea how to get out of the hell she will say that she was living in.” Anderson will testify that she met with Exner in early 1977 in an attempt to “make it right,” thinking she should ask the bishop if she should marry Molon, said Kovacs. Exner admitted in his discovery that her report to him was the “final straw that broke the camel’s back” and that Molon had taken advantage of Anderson who Exner viewed as being vulnerable, she said. Anderson will say that despite her report of the abuse to Exner, the sexual assaults by Molon continued for a period of time, said the plaintiff’s lawyer. In or around March 1977, Exner verbally dismissed Molon from the parish, Kovacs said, adding that Archbishop Exner did not immediately inform the parishioners that he had suspended Father Molon. Molon, 88, is not taking part in the trial. Molon who suffers from dementia, is in a long-term care facility in Kingston and has filed a response, denying the allegations.

he tried to verity the rumours. He said he launched an investigating, but did not recording any of those investigations in writing, Kovacs told B.C. Supreme Court Justice David Crossin. “Father Molon, in the Archbishop’s own words, was ‘a playboy.’ He calls Father Molon “promiscuous.” He admits, in his own words, that Father Molon ‘was taking advantage of quite a few people.’ Specifically, he was having ‘inappropriate relationships with women.’” Kovacs said. The plaintiff’s lawyer said Exner did speak to Molon, who he said admitted to the rumours and shrugged his shoulders, saying, ‘I’m human.’ Exner admitted he shared the concerns about Molon with some of his “close collaborators,” including the Presbyteral counsel,” Kovacs said. “He and other clergy put pressure on Father Molon to correct his behaviour in the spring of 1976.” Kovacs said Exner had considered removing Father Molon, but “still wanted to leave a door open for possibility of rehabilitation, although he wasn’t co-operative in any sense to his offer of rehabilitation.” Then-bishop Exner allowed Molon to stay on, with full faculties without restriction, and Molon continued to provide care to parishioners, including female parishioners, Kovacs told the judge. Anderson said that in September 1976, she was then 26 years of age and had just been hired to begin teaching at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help school. She claims

arguing that their operation of short-term rentals on lakefront properties on Red Lake, 50 kilometres northwest of Kamloops, violated regional district bylaws. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Barbara Norell’s decision was made public this week. Cade and Patton had argued they should be allowed to use the properties as shortterm rentals, which they have done since 2008, because previous bylaws did not address such use. The regional district, meanwhile, said shortterm rentals have never been allowed in areas zoned for single-family homes. Norell found that Cade and Patton were in violation of the TNRD’s bylaws and ordered they cease operating their shortterm rentals.

Bear banger ignited Allie Lake wildfire in May 2017 SEAN BRADY

Documents obtained by Kamloops This Week show that a wildfire that burned more than 2,700 hectares northwest of the city last year was ignited after a man tried to scare a bear off his property. The Allie Lake wildfire was sparked on May 23, 2018, in the Deadman River Valley just south of Vidette, approximately 60 kilometres northwest of Kamloops. The fire threatened nearby homes and ripped through 2,700 hectares of forest and ranch land in the area, forcing the regional district to order the evacuation of 14 nearby addresses and put another 51 addresses on alert. BC Wildfire Service investigators determined the fire was started by the use of a “bear banger” explosive, used by a property caretaker to scare off a problem bear.

The caretaker tried to scare the bear away by yelling, but was unsuccessful and fired the explosive from a gun. Sparks from the bear banger ignited dry grass on the property and the fire took off, engulfing a shed as the caretaker attempted to extinguish it using buckets of water. It later jumped across nearby Deadman-Vidette Road and spread to the north. The caretaker called authorities at about 3:40 p.m. One hour later, the fire was estimated to have reached 20 hectares in size, with a large column of smoke forming overhead. By 6 p.m., the fire was estimated at 50 hectares in size and growing. Aircraft and ground crews attacked the fire and, by 8 p.m., 60 per cent of the fire had been surrounded with retardant. By May 25, 2018 — two days after the fire started — the blaze had reached 1,600 hectares in size. By May 27, 2018, when the fire had matured to 2,700 hectares, more than 130 firefight-

ers, 11 helicopters, 10 pieces of heavy equipment and air tankers were still required to fight the flames. Evacuation orders and notices remained in effect until May 29. A copy of the report completed by Natural Resource Officer Jordan Pertus states that no non-compliance under the Wildfire Act was found to have taken place and no action was taken, also noting the caretaker was diligent in his efforts to extinguish the fire. Singing Lands Ranch was one of the properties evacuated. Owner Erin Kendall spoke to KTW after the evacuation order came down, saying it was the second year she and her family had been evacuated due to wildfire. While 2019 has been a quiet year for wildfires, 2018 was a record-setter, with more than 2,100 wildfires burning approximately 1.3 million hectares of land, costing the provincial government $615 million.

Federal Election 2019 Kamloops This Week has questioned Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo candidates on a number of topics. Today’s topic is INTERNATIONAL INTERFERENCE IN ELECTIONS.

Q:

International interference in the 2016 U.S. election continues to be a topic of discussion as that country approaches the 2020 election. How big of a problem is international interference in Canadian elections and what can be done to combat it? Kira Cheeseborough, Animal Protection Party: “I still have yet to see any interference within the Canadian election. “However, I do realize that, with the age of social media, interference is a lot easier to go undetected KIRA CHEESEBOROUGH because we don’t have a lot of regulatory bodies overseeing the use of social media within an election from third parties. “One example could be companies that are selling engagement on posts with bots that can be very well-programmed to say exactly what customers want them to say to make it look like its organic engagement when it isn’t, which can give a false sense of who is leading the polls, who is garnering the most support. That is one way international interference can occur because these companies can be from anywhere and there are people on an international level who do have interest in Canadian policies and Canadian politics for their own benefit. This is a way they can interfere.” Cheeseborough said it is difficult to combat the practice. “The internet is a free space. One thing would be looking at cyberspace and how regulatory legislation can come in without infringing on the freedom of a typical internet user, but to hopefully intervene on these sort of situations. “For example, if there is a party or candidate that has a large stream of engagement, to have people going behind the scenes and double-checking all of these accounts, all of these people, quote unquote, that are engaging and sharing and spreading a certain message, to see if they are genuine people.

“But it’s delicate because there’s only so much of that you can do without being an infringement of privacy, as well, if they are real people.” Iain Currie, Green Party: “How big a problem? I don’t have the technical expertise to tell you how big a problem, but really, any interference is a fairly massive problem. Our democracy is so essential that any forIAIN CURRIE eign interference is a big deal. “Only if it were a few instances, but it tends to not be a few instances — it’s the sheer volume and reach of social media that enables even a small group of people to have an effect if they want. I think it’s a huge problem. “Whether it’s going to be more or less or about the same as it was last time, it seems like things are becoming worse. But again, I don’t have the technical expertise to tell you if that’s true or just reading about it more in the media … “I think we ought to do a better job at managing social media and speaking to each other in a more respectful and less adversarial way because I think a troll stands out among people speaking in a civilized manner to each other and has less impact when the political discourse is more respectful. “That’s sort of a high-level answer and I’m sure there’s more technical, down-and-dirty answers. That’s where we need to go as a society — to combat fake news and interference through social media is to speak more respectfully to each other, so that the trolls who are based in Russia or North Korea, wherever they are, stand out and so that fake news is easily detectable.”

Cynthia Egli, New Democratic Party: “I honestly didn’t really think it was going to be a thing here and I’m not sure that I still do think that it would be a thing, but we do have a bit of a platform on it, believe it or not, and that’s CYNTHIA EGLI that we need to recognize the threat posed by outside interference in Canadian elections. “The federal New Democrats believe that more needs to be done to stop the spread of disinformation. Social media platforms must be held to their responsibility to flag and remove fraudulent accounts and to respond promptly to harassment, threats and hate speech. No one but the people of Canada should decide or influence the outcome of Canadian elections.” Ken Finlayson, People’s Party: “When you said international interference, the first thing that comes to mind is the United Nations. “Our policy on that is we’re going to minimize our role in KEN FINLAYSON the United Nations. “We think that’s international interference when we’re compelled to sign on to immigration pacts, when we’re compelled to sign on to things like the Paris climate accord, when we’re compelled to change our stance on spending billions and billions overseas when we’ve got people on the street in Kamloops. “We think charity begins at home.

“When we have First Nations here that don’t have clean drinking water, we don’t think we need to be building roads in Africa. “We need to prioritize where we spend the money.” Peter Kerek, Communist Party: “International interference, you could say, happens on a daily basis with foreign powers and foreign corporations lobbying and meeting with politicians at every level in Canada, trying PETER KEREK to gain favours and make inroads for their corporation or their country, their investors. “I would be more concerned about the regular ongoing influence of lobbyists on our politicians when there are no elections happening. “Interfering with the way people vote or trying to influence them is a way of saying that Canadians are easily duped by propaganda of one sort or another and elections are a great time to dupe a whole lot of people to vote against their own interest, but that type of meddling, I don’t really think, should make a difference in a country that claims to have a really healthy democracy. “If your citizenship understands how your politics work and where the parties stand, they shouldn’t be so easily duped by ads that are run on Facebook, which are clear propaganda against one party or another.” Terry Lake, Liberal Party: “I think it’s easy to take our democracy for granted and just assume that you don’t have bad actors trying to influence people or somehow taking action that affects the vote. “But we’ve seen in the United

States that Russia significantly interfered with the election in the last presidential election. “There TERRY LAKE appears to be some evidence of some of that activity going on in Canada since then. “The government has taken some action [creating a Ministry of Democratic Institutions] and I think that’s what we need to do. “We have to be very diligent. We’re lucky we still have paper ballots in our election process, so hacking an electronic voting system doesn’t seem to be one of the issues we have. “But when you talk about social media and the use of bots and obviously fake stories that are planted and sent around social media, that’s a real concern.” Cathy McLeod, Conservative Party: “Absolutely something can be done to combat it. “I have not got a sense in this election yet if it is a problem, but certainly from work that was done by a parliamenCATHY MCLEOD tary committee before the election, there was significant potential concerns raised. “The plan that the government put in place, I’m not sure it’s effective and I think the next Parliament needs to have a serious and significant look at this particular issue, reflect on what happened in this election, reflect on whether the government’s plan had any effect. It’s a changing world and we need to be ready to adapt.”

Elections Canada has been busy behind the scenes #elxn43

JESSICA WALLACE

Federal Election

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

As voters continue to hear from MP hopefuls in the lead-up to the Oct. 21 federal election, Elections Canada officials are working behind the scenes to ensure a smooth logistical feat come voting day. Elections Canada returning officer Geoff Collier said more than 300,000 people are hired across the country, including 900 in the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo riding. The employees oversee 260 voting opportunities in the local riding, from polling stations to special voting at places like seniors homes, Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre and Royal Inland Hospital.

Polling stations are available on all First Nations reserves in the riding, Collier said, and small communities like Avola (57 eligible voters) and Canoe Creek (40 eligible voters) are provided in-person opportunities to cast ballots. “Our job is not to increase voter turnout or to tell people to vote,” Collier said. “Our job is to make sure that every single person who wants to vote can easily access that right.” Though 900 people might sound like a lot of employees for one day (it’s actually longer, when including training and advance

voting), consider a larger location, such as Kamloops United Church downtown. It has 10 polls. “Each of those polling stations will have two people at it, plus you have to have information officers, registration officers, people who help people come in, people who help people find their registration and people who supervise the entire operation,” Collier said. Collier has been in his 10-year appointed role for two years. It’s the first time he has run the “entire show” and he said his experience in project and event management has prepared him for the job, one at the heart of Canadian democracy. The Elections Canada office opened in Sahali Mall one hour after the writ dropped on Sept.

11, anticipating the official start to the election as much as the rest of the country. The fixed election date makes it easier to prepare, however. Upon being hired and trained — so far in the KamloopsThompson-Cariboo riding, 700 of the 900 needed staff have been employed — the Elections Canada team heads into the Sahali Mall office to pick up their ballot boxes and ballots for their respective locations. On election day, supervisors will show up at their stations at 5 a.m., with poll workers following no later than 6 a.m. Voters will start filing in an hour later, at 7 a.m. In Kamloops, polls will close at 7 p.m., at which time staff will begin the process of counting the votes, which remain anonymous.

Results will be called in by phone to the office, where they will be provided to media and reported by computer to Elections Canada’s central office. “We’ll be at the office for probably until about 1 a.m., waiting for all of the boxes to come in,” Collier said, noting after the results are called in, the boxes are brought in by supervisors. It’s a busy day, but Collier said it’s fun. He said the most rewarding part is getting rid of barriers in allowing Canadians to elect their federal government. “The goal for us is to make it accessible to everybody,” he said. To apply for a job with Elections Canada in the upcoming federal election, visit the local riding office in Sahali Mall, call 1-866-545-0619 or go online to elections.ca.

Sign vandalism mars another election campaign This campaigns sign of Green candidate Iain Currie, situated near the intersection of Westsyde Road and Eighth Street, was defaced with spray paint last week. Someone scrawled “PPC” across the sign — PPC referencing the People’s Party of Canada. For the record, Currie said he does not believe the vandalism was the work of the local PPC campaign team.

People’s Party of Canada candidate Ken Finlayson is adamant ongoing vandalism on election signs across the city has nothing to do with his supporters. Finlayson reached out to KTW on the weekend and said at least 28 more signs had been vandalized at various locations across Kamloops. Campaign signs for Liberal candidate Terry Lake, Green candidate Iain Currie, Conservative candidate Cathy McLeod and NDP candidate Cynthia Egli have been spray-painted with the letters “PPC.” On Saturday, Lake took to Twitter, calling on Finlayson to “please reign in your supporters who have defaced many progressive party signs

around Kamloops.” PPC supporter and sign man Dave Merryfield was out cleaning off the signs of his party’s political opponents on Saturday. Finlayson said he guarantees the vandalism was not the work of a PPC supporter. “Nobody in their right mind would do

this trying to get support,” Finlayson told KTW. “We don’t have any supporters who are that stupid. We’re doing our dead-level best to get on top of it.” Finlayson said he is concerned the vandalism is the work of someone trying to “paint us as a radical party,” noting the RCMP has been

alerted to the issue. The People’s Party of Canada has come under fire a number of times during the election campaign for its stance on climate change and immigration, including a tussle over billboard ads featuring PPC leader Maxime Bernier asking Canadians to “Say NO to Mass Immigration.”

The criticism also includes Finlayson himself, who in September shared an image online that compared 16-yearold climate activist Greta Thunberg to the Nazis’ use of children for propaganda. He later said he regretted the post. Finlayson called the sign vandalism a “blatant provocation by someone trying to smear the PPC” and that “anyone with a spoonful of brains knows we wouldn’t be doing it.” Egli and Currie said

Federal Election Oct. 21, 2019 there are better ways to state an opinion. Egli said she feels sorry for people who take time out of their day to vandalize election signs. “If they don’t want to vote for the NDP, they don’t have to and, personally, I think they’re giving us free publicity,” she said. Egli said people have a right to their own opinions, adding it would be more constructive to engage the candidate with criticism. “If people really want to have an actual con-

versation about whether they disagree with the policies or not, they can call me,” she said. Currie said the best way to get a point across in an election is to vote. “If you don’t like what the Green Party stands for, vote for one of the other people,” he said, noting he does not think anyone from the People’s Party of Canada campaign was responsible for vandalizing the sign. “I disagree with almost everything [PPC candidate] Ken [Finlayson] says about his politics, but he’s a decent guy, very cordial and friendly,” Currie said. Currie also noted a couple of drivers flipped him the bird while he and volunteers were waving signs at passing motorists last week on the north side of Overlanders Bridge. “I wasn’t surprised by that,” he said.

Each kit includes items to encourage movement, such as beanbags, balls, scarves, jump ropes

and agility dots. There are also five books, which encourage children to act out different movement patterns. The goal of the kits is to teach children to move their bodies naturally through both reading and play. The kits will be revealed during the Storytime & Craft session at the downtown Kamloops Library on Thursday, Oct. 17, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 am.

Feds’ decision on steelhead is shortsighted Welcome to the inaugural The Outdoor Narrative column, which will run every two weeks in the pages of KTW and online at kamloopsthisweek.com. The Outdoor Narrative, which is also a podcast, is the work of Robert Koopmans, an angler and hunter and former editor of the Kamloops Daily News.

ROBERT KOOPMANS The Outdoor

NARRATIVE head is so dire that the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada issued an emergency report in February 2018, noting the runs have declined more than 80 per cent in three generations. The fish are clearly endangered, the report stated, with immediate action required. It was an open invitation for the federal government to list Fraser River steelhead as a “species at risk” under Canada’s Species at Risk Act (SARA), legislation that would have kicked in numerous provisions designed to make survival of the species the highest priority. From the government of Canada’s website: “The purposes of the Species at Risk Act are to prevent wildlife species in Canada from disappearing, to provide for the recovery of wildlife species that are extirpated (no longer exist in the wild in Canada), endangered or threatened as a result of human activity, and to manage species of special concern to prevent them from becoming endangered or threatened.”

KTW FILE PHOTO The outlook for the Fraser Interior steelhead is grim, but the federal government has refused to list the fish as a “species at risk” under Canada’s Species at Risk Act.

Sounds tailor-made for the steelhead dilemma. What happened? In July, the federal government announced it would not list steelhead under SARA after considering a wide range of “polycentric factors,” including a “cost-benefit analysis of the potential impacts of listing (steelhead).” What would have been those costs? According to the same notes, the costs were estimated to range between $190 million to $254 million over 20 years, mostly in lost revenue and profits to “harvesters, recreational anglers, Indigenous groups, the seafood industry and the recreational services industry.”

“Listing Chilcotin and Thompson River steelhead as endangered under SARA would result in significant and immediate negative socioeconomic impacts on Canadians due to the application of (SARA’s) general prohibitions,” the government’s statement on the decision indicated. And there you have it. To what extent the “socio-economic” factors weighed more heavily than other “polycentric” factors, we will likely never know. But they are big numbers and I can’t help but think those in high corridors in Ottawa did some political math — there would have

been a tremendous hue and cry had West Coast commercial fishing seasons been dramatically affected — and decided the cost of saving 50 steelhead a year accidentally caught by gillnets wasn’t worth it. Such calculations are incredibly shortsighted. We’ve heard the same socio-economic concerns expressed and seen the same calculations made many times in other places, including Canada’s East Coast with Atlantic cod. There, long-term resistance to constraining commercial fisheries led to the collapse of cod stocks and the fishing industry. The fact is, people are incredibly resilient when it comes to adapting to changing eco-

nomic circumstances. The Atlantic commercial fishing industry collapsed and fishermen moved on. There are no businesses in Spences Bridge today catering to anglers. The town is still there. We have survived countless periods of economic adjustment. No doubt there are individual hardships when regional industries are affected, but history shows people are remarkably adept at surviving job loss and displacement. Steelhead are not so adept at dodging commercial fishing nets. Is it too late for steelhead? Probably. The federal government’s refusal to do all it can to protect the few

remaining fish likely sounds their death knell, despite Ottawa’s promise to implement “immediate conservation measures.” What can we learn? If nothing else, perhaps that calculating short-term costs in relation to saving endangered species is embarrassingly selfish and will be judged as such by future generations. Economic pain is temporary. Extinction of species is permanent. Canada is a rich country with a deep natural heritage and Canadians are resilient people with proven ability to survive “socioeconomic impacts.” Let’s act like it.

f there is one question I’d like answered in the continuing saga of the demise of the Thompson River steelhead, it’s this: why are we still calculating the costs of saving endangered species? The outlook for the Fraser Interior steelhead, which includes both the Thompson and Chilcotin river runs, is grim. Ten years ago, biologists said at least 900 fish needed to make it to spawning beds in the Deadman, Nicola and Bonaparte rivers for the Thompson strain to continue. In 2018, only 177 spawning adults and just 37 fish were counted in the Chilcotin River system. There is much speculation about the reasons for the fish’s decline, but reports from various government groups, committees, bodies and agencies (the decline of steelhead has been well considered, at the least) indicate three likely causes. They are deteriorating freshwater habitat, poor ocean survival and losses to coastal commercial fisheries as unintended by-catch. The threat to steel-

RUNNING THROUGH THE ARCH AND IN SEARCH OF A CURE

Survivors of cancer pass through an arch composed of paddles during the annual CIBC Run for the Cure, which was held on Sunday in Riverside Park. The Survivors Parade was part of the day’s events, which also included runs of one and five kilometres. The Kamloops event was one of 57 held across Canada. Nationally, 85,000 Canadians laced up their shoes and raised $17 million to support breast cancer research.

Teacher wins excellence in education award A Kamloops teacher is among 10 educators in B.C. to win a 2019 Premier’s Award for Excellence in Education. Jordan Smith, teacher/program co-ordinator at the Twin Rivers Education Centre Four Directions secondary, won the Indigenous Education Award. According to the Premier’s Award for Excellence in Education committee: “Smith works hard to connect students with Indigenous culture and history and to create an environment of safety and belonging. “Each year, she identifies a thematic focus that connects

experiential learning, art, community involvement and field trips to an elective course that all students are enrolled in. “In keeping with the theme, students engage in a variety of hands-on learning opportunities, such as traditional fishing, gathering with local Elders and working with Indigenous artists. “This year, she secured a Vancouver Foundation grant to pilot a program designed to integrate Indigenous ways of knowing alongside Western curriculum by involving family, elders and knowledge keepers.” Premier John Horgan said all British Columbians benefit from

the outstanding efforts of teachers, administrators and support workers. The Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education were launched in 2018 as a means of honouring the outstanding achievements of public, independent and First Nations school-system teachers, principals, vice-principals, administrators and support staff in the K-12 school system. This year’s 10 winners — who were chosen from 140 nominations received between January and April and narrowed down to 30 finalists — were announced at a ceremony last Friday at

Government House in Victoria, with Horgan, Education Minister Rob Fleming and Lt.-Gov. Janet Austin in attendance. The annual awards ceremony is held at the same time as World Teachers’ Day, with this year’s being marked internationally on Oct. 5. Winners of this year’s awards received a commemorative work of art by Claire Jorgensen, a 17-year-old student at Reynolds secondary in Saanich. They also received a $3,000 personal bursary for professional learning and a $2,000 contribution to their school community for professional learning.

Jordan Smith is a teacher/program co-ordinator at the Twin Rivers Education Centre Four Directions secondary. To see video of the awardwinning educator, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com.

Literacy in Kamloops finds a home for its books JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The City of Kamloops has come to the rescue of a nonprofit displaced by the domino effect of student movement caused by the Sept. 5 fire that destroyed Parkcrest elementary. Calling it “great” news, Literacy in Kamloops co-ordinator Fiona Clare said the city’s recreation manager, Barbara Berger, approached her in the wake of media coverage about the non-profit searching for a new home for its books and offered space for one year in the Parkview Activity Centre, across from McDonald Park in North Kamloops. “It’s a little lounge area, but it’s quite a decent size,” Clare said. “They had some couches, which they’ve moved. We’re going to buy some bookshelves at Canadian Tire.”

The non-profit was displaced from George Hilliard elementary (to where Parkcrest students moved), where it stores thousands of books from its annual Heap the Honda event and other donations that line two-dozen Bright Red Bookshelves in schools and other venues in Kamloops. Literacy in Kamloops promotes literacy in the city via many programs and relies on community partners, all without a home base. It had teamed up with Twin Rivers Education Centre to store its books at George Hilliard. However, as a result of the Parkcrest students moving in, Twin Rivers students were relocated to NorKam senior secondary and the John Tod Centre. Literacy in Kamloops had planned to temporarily move books into the re-opened Westsyde elementary, though

that location was not determined to be a suitable longterm option, with the school expected to grow and because it was not ideally located to transport books to schools throughout the city. “It was really just a storage space, when we also need a work space occasionally,” Clare said. “The [Parkview Activity Centre] location is much more central.” Calling the new space “perfect,” Clare said she signed a one-year lease with the city, with hopes for possible renewal after that time. Literacy in Kamloops brings books to the community via many avenues, including in the Bright Red Book Bus, which keeps kids reading during the summer months. Literacy leaders Kelsey Hryhirchuk (left) and Paige DeWolff were busy spreading the written word in the city this past summer. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE

MOBIL WORK FORCE

Renovation work continues at the Mobil gas station at the Real Canadian Superstore in Sahali. In the spring of 2017, Loblaw, parent company of Superstore, reached a deal to sell its gas stations to Brookfield Business Partners, which rebranded them under the Mobil name.

Night closures begin this week on Red Bridge Kamloops motorists will need to find alternative routes to get to and from the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc reserve as the Red Bridge will be closing nightly next week. Routine inspections between 7:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. began on Monday and will keep the crossing connecting Lorne Street and Mount Paul Way closed nightly for the better part of the next three weeks, according to the Ministry of Transportation.

The planned closures are scheduled to take place from Oct. 7 and Oct, 11, from Oct. 13 to Oct. 18 and from Oct. 20 and Oct. 25. Drivers can use the Yellowhead Bridge on Highway 5 as a crossing option during Red Bridge closure periods. The closures are required to allow crews to conduct a comprehensive inspection of the structure — part of the ministry’s program to continually assess the condition of

the bridge and keep it in good operating condition. The wooden trestle bridge is more than 100 years old. It was originally built in 1887, rebuilt in 1912 and again in 1936. Adjustments to the current inspection schedule are possible. For information regarding the closure and any adjustments to the schedule, check @DriveBC on Twitter or go online to drivebc.ca.

CUPE/TRU deal includes six per cent wage hike About 1,000 Canadian Union of Public Employees staff members at Thompson Rivers University have ratified a new contract, which comes with the creation of a new position to address mental health. The agreement applies to TRU employees who work as system analysts, accoun-

tants, cashiers, bookstore clerks, registration and admissions clerks, maintenance and utility staff, library technicians, ancillary staff and open-learning support staff. The three-year contract stretches from April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2022, and includes a six per cent wage increase —

two per cent each year — over the life of the agreement. The deal also includes creating a new position to assist TRU staff and support mental health and wellness, as well as additional funding for programs and resources regarding wellness, innovation

and training to support service improvements. The agreement between the postsecondary institution’s board of governors and CUPE Local 4879 was ratified under the provincial government’s sustainable services negotiating mandate.

Dearborn, Unifor ratify contract Unifor 10-B members working at Dearborn Ford in Kamloops have voted to ratify a new three-year collective agreement that includes wage increases and a pension enhancement. After a turbulent start to bargaining that included a bad faith bargaining complaint from Unifor, the 43 members of 10-B ratified a new collective agreement that includes a 2.5 per cent wage increase per year, improved overtime provisions, stronger sick leave languages, work retention gains and a 0.25 per cent pension increase. “I’m very proud of what we accomplished and overcame during this round of bargaining,” said Rene Pellerin, president of Unifor Local 10-B. “Solidarity with their bargaining committee made a difference at the negotiating table.

“Unifor Local 10-B has had a good working relationship with Dearborn Ford and we hope to build on that relationship going forward.” Unifor is Canada’s largest union in the private sector, representing 315,000 workers in every major area of the economy, including employees in the newsroom, front office and delivery areas of Kamloops This Week. In August, alleged interference of a strike vote led Unifor to file a grievance with the BC Labour Relations Board. Unifor claimed that on Aug. 1, managers deliberately attempted to taint the vote by pulling employees aside individually and laid out aspects of their offer while omitting concessions in the proposal. Dearborn declined to comment when contacted by KTW.

Barriere workers join CUPE Workers at the District of Barriere have voted to become members of CUPE. The 12 municipal workers include outside and inside workers who maintain the district’s wastewater,

parks, roads and provide administrative services for residents. The vote was held on Oct. 3. CUPE 900 now represents 940 municipal members in various communities, including Kamloops.

When the $13-million reconstruction of West Victoria Street is finished next year, it is intended to look like this. Until then, police are warning drivers to obey all construction zone speed limits and traffic control personnel. CITY OF KAMLOOPS RENDERING

Police message to drivers on West Victoria: Slow down KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kamloops Mounties intend to keep a close eye on motorists passing through the construction zone along West Victoria Street following reports of drivers speeding through the area. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said it has been brought to the RCMP’s attention that with some portions of the street now paved, motorists are increasing their speed through the construction zone, which has a posted

30 km/h speed limit. “It is extremely important for drivers to follow work zone speed limits, as there are both people and machinery in very close proximity to moving traffic,” Shelkie said. She said drivers need to remember that the entirety of the construction zone is a reduced speed zone. Speeding through work zones is a safety concern for traffic control personnel and construction workers and comes

with a $196 fine. Kamloops RCMP’s municipal traffic unit intends to monitor the construction area and watch for speed violators. West Victoria Street has been under reconstruction since midApril when the City of Kamloops undertook a massive $13-million rehabilitation project that will replace aging infrastructure below the arterial route, move power lines underground and add new sidewalks and landscaping to the area.

Real Estate versus the Stock Market We often hear "You can't lose with real estate." or "Real estate is a better investment than the stock market." While at certain points in time this may be true, over the long run you might be surprised how they have played out.

The stock market returns do not include investment fees or taxes. Real Estate returns do not factor in rental income or home ownership costs such as mortgage, insurance, upkeep, property transfer tax, legal fees or property tax.

Before we go any further, we feel it is important to mention that we are believers in real estate. Between our families, we own residential, rental and recreational.

An often-overlooked risk in real estate is government intervention. A few recent examples include: the addition of BC's 20% foreign buyer tax (previously 15%), BC's Speculative tax up to 2%, and the city of Vancouver's Empty Home Tax up to 1% of assessed value. Interest rate policy as well as stricter mortgage lending rules have also affected Canada's housing market broadly.

RBC conducted research from January 1993 to December 2018 comparing real estate returns in several Canadian cities versus the Canadian stock market. Below are their returns:

How has Kamloops fared? According to crea.ca as of August 2019, the current yearto-date average sale price in Kamloops is $419,464. Going back to January 2010, it was roughly $315,000. That growth of $104,000 in just over 9.5 years equates to an annual return of 3.0%. According to Thompson Reuters, the TSX during the same period returned 5.0%, excluding dividends.

So why the difference in psychology between stocks and real estate? Maybe it is because real estate is tangible. You can see it, walk through it and have the keys that go with it. Perhaps it's because you can sell a stock in just a few clicks, whereas real estate has a longer sale process. Potentially the costs of buying and selling real estate deter investors from selling in a panic. In the end, the objective is the same. To invest in assets that will grow over the long term and increase your wealth. We like to remind all investors that: 1. We believe owning a home is financially prudent 2. Because a home is often ones' largest portion of their net worth, we encourage investors to diversify 3. Historically the Canadian and U.S. Stock markets have outperformed real estate 4. During certain periods, there can be over or underperformance from any of these three assets There are precautions that need to be taken with investing, whether in the markets or buying a rental property. As always, we recommend you consult with a professional advisor beforehand. Written by Keith.

Grizzlies to take swipe at hometown Storm STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Hockey fans interested in getting a look at the Kamloops Storm will be able to see how they stack up against a championship contender on Wednesday at Memorial Arena. The Revelstoke Grizzlies, who waxed the Storm 4-0 in Round 1 of the 2019 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoffs and went on to win the league title, will be in town for a 7:30 p.m. start. “When we’re at our best, we can compete with anybody,” said Steve Gainey, the Storm’s first-year head coach.

Gainey has seen enough out of his team to make that statement, including its 6-0 drubbing of the 100 Mile House Wranglers last Friday at Memorial Arena, a victory over a team that is ramping up to host the Cyclone Taylor Cup. “We got a win, but I liked the energy of the win, as well,” Gainey said. “Everybody was really involved. They’re competing really well.” Another side of the Storm was on display the next night, when Fernie bumped Kamloops 5-2 at the venerable Victoria Street barn. “Our guys haven’t been able to get the back-to-backs,” Gainey said. “The energy was good in the room, but it just didn’t come out in the legs. They aren’t ready to do

Among the logjam of players tied for second in the category are a pair of 17-year-old rookie Kamloopsians — forward Harrison Ewert and defenceman Brendan Kirschner. Gainey said Ewert, who had three goals and four points in a 7-1 win over Creston in Kamloops on Sept. 27, is a strong forward who can handle the puck well and shows impressive game awareness. Kirschner and 16-year-old Vanderhoof product Brody Johnston earned mention from Gainey. “They have stepped forward as our most consistent players within that group.” Jakob Drapeau, a 19-year-old

the work in the second game as much as they are with that rush of excitement in the first game of the weekend.” That ebb-and-flow of energy will not factor into the midweek clash against the Grizzlies. Kamloops is not scheduled to play again until next Wednesday against Sicamous, with puck-drop slated for 7:30 p.m. at Memorial. Doug Birks Division standings, from first to last: Sicamous (5-40-0), Revelstoke (4-1-0-1), Chase (3-3-0-1), 100 Mile House (3-4-0-0) and Kamloops (2-5-0-1). Therann Kincross, a 20-yearold forward from Victoria, leads the Storm in scoring, with 11 points, including three goals, in eight games.

CASH DOWN

netminder from Prince George, and Ethan Paulin-Hatch, an overage backstop from Fort McMurray, have played in four games apiece and each has one win. Numbers favour Drapeau, but Gainey said it is too early to read into statistics, as his squad is giving up too many odd-man rushes and shots from the slot. “Our guys can play better and give them the support they need,” Gainey said. Revelstoke and Kamloops have squared off once this season, with the visiting Grizzlies posting a 4-0 victory on Sept. 22 at Memorial. “If we can match their intensity and move pucks under pressure, we can have a good game against them,” Gainey said.

obody pounds out press releases like TRU sports information officer Larry Read, forever adept at feeding the Kamloops sports media machine. So, when KTW got wind of a 6-foot-3 Belarusian joining the WolfPack women’s volleyball team and realized the acquisition was not accompanied by notice from the university, we figured one of two things: Read is sidelined with some sort of carpal-tunnel ailment or towering middle Kseniya Kocyigit is meant to be an eastern European secret weapon. It turns out neither is true, according to head coach Chad Grimm, who asked Read to hold off on the big announcement until the 32-year-old Byarosea, Belarus, product’s papers were in order and she touched down in the Tournament Capital. She has arrived. Kocyigit, a longtime professional volleyball player and former member of Azerbaijan’s national team, has potential to be a matchwinning addition to a squad that is primed for its best-ever season. Grimm made no bold predictions or guarantees. When asked about expectations — are they as high as they’ve been since you took the reins in 2013-2014? — he said that is for other people to decide. My decision: They are. The WolfPack won their first playoff match in program history last season, albeit in a 2-1 series loss to the Alberta Golden Bears in Edmonton in Round 1 of the Canada West post-season. That might not seem like a telling feat, but it was an exclamation point on a surprise season in which young players developed, veterans put their stamp on the team and Ukrainian Olga

TRU SPORTS INFORMATION Kseniya Kocyigit plans to use her maturity and positive attitude to help her new team, the TRU WolfPack, reach new heights in 2019-2020.

Savenchuk spiked her way into the Canada West elite conversation. Savenchuk, similar to Iuliia Pakhomenko (also Ukrainian) before her, is evidence of the difference one player can make, named to the conference’s first all-star team after a campaign that saw her place fourth in the league in both kills and kills per set. Without her, the Pack would almost certainly have

missed the playoffs. Savenchuk, the 6-foot-3 outside hitter from Donetsk, is returning to the fold, along with all of her teammates from the 2018-2019 season. Nobody graduated. Standout hitter Yevgeniya Nyukhalova, who took last season off to have a baby, was pondering a return to TRU, but the WolfPack’s Female Newcomer of the Year Award winner for 2017-2018 (also Ukrainian), is expected

to play this season for the Nanaimo-based Vancouver Island University Mariners in the Pacific Western Athletic Association ranks. Two capable setters — fourth-year Calgarian Abby Spratt and 6-foot-2 Anastasiya Muzyka (the third-year Ukrainian whose friendship with Kocyigit played a part in the newcomer’s recruitment) — will push each other for playing time while passing to the likes of Kendra Finch, whose 312 points last season left her second only to Savenchuk (399) in the team-scoring category. More are worth mentioning, including Katie Ludvig, the outfit’s lone Kamloopsian who is pursuing an increased role and plans to be a leader in her third season. But it will be best to have a look for yourself. TRU’s first regular season home match will be played at the TCC on Oct. 25, when Calgary comes to town for a 6:45 p.m. start. Kocyigit will be there, along with potential for a winning season not felt since the program’s U Sports inception in 2005-2006. Let’s hope TRU brass sets Read up with an ergonomic keyboard design.

amloops Search and Rescue has been helping save lives in and around Kamloops since the 1970s, but with the opening of a new search and rescue facility slated for next year, 2020 will mark the first time the volunteer organization has had a permanent hall to call their own since it was formed nearly 50 years ago. Organized search and rescue in Kamloops began around 1971 when members of the Fish and Game Club recognized a need for trained and skilled people to assist lost and injured people in the wilderness areas around Kamloops. A few years later the city took over search and rescue as part of it’s emergency response program and the organization known today as Kamloops Search and Rescue was officially formed. In 1994, as the city moved more rescue services over to the fire department, volunteers of the search and rescue program decided to incorporate as an independent non-profit society. Since the beginning, skills training has often taken place in the bush surrounding Kamloops, and in the early years monthly meetings were held wherever the team could find space. The early years had the team meet in the basement of the Federal Building at 3rd Avenue and Seymour Street, an old city building on Victoria Street, an old house on Mission Flats Road and the former Brocklehurst Fire Hall on Mayfair Street. More recently indoor training and meetings have been held at the Emergency Management B.C.’s regional office or the current hall location in an old city carpentry shop on Mission Flats Road. The generosity of the Cooper Family Foundation will give the Kamloops Search and Rescue team a place to meet, train, socialize and grow in a way the team has never been able to. This new search and rescue facility will provide a sense of belonging and pride for the volunteers.

TRU clinging to playoff hopes Graduating players Taylor Miller of Kamloops, Marisa Mendonca of Penticton and Natalie Verdiel of Powell River have one last chance to impress at Hillside Stadium. The TRU WolfPack women’s soccer team will wrap its home schedule on Saturday, when the UBC Okanagan Heat of Kelowna come to town. Kickoff is slated for noon. UBC Okanagan (1-9) will play host to TRU (1-6-3) on Thursday in the Little Apple.

Both matches featuring the teams with the Pacific Division’s worst records have potential to be meaningful in Canada West standings. TRU is seventh in the eight-team division. The top six teams, sorted by winning percentage, will qualify for the playoffs. The WolfPack are within striking distance of sixth-place Fraser Valley and scheduled to play the Cascades on Oct. 18 in Abbotsford. TRU will wrap its regular-season sched-

ule the next day against the Trinity Western Spartans (8-1-1) in Langley. Head coach Mark Pennington, in his first season in charge of the WolfPack, was proud of the way his team handled itself in a pair of home losses last weekend — 2-1 to UBC (6-1-3) on Friday and 1-0 to Victoria (5-2-3) on Saturday. “Just now, the fact we’re disappointed not to get a result off a big boy at home, says the program has come a long way and they’ve

made some good steps,” Pennington told TRU Sports Information. “The way the league is set up isn’t great, to have the top level of soccer on back-to-back nights, but we’ll go through some video and come up with a plan to play against UBCO in two very meaningful games.” Camryn Curts scored the Pack’s only goal of the weekend. Miller had the assist. Goalkeeper Danielle Robertson backstopped TRU in both matches.

Daniel Sagno and Marco Favaro bulged the old onion bag for TRU on Saturday in support of goalkeeper Jackson Gardner. The UBC Okanagan Heat will play host to TRU (3-5-4) on Thursday in Kelowna, with kickoff slated for 7:30 p.m. The rematch will get underway at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Hillside Stadium.

will qualify for the post-season. UBC Okanagan (6-5-3) is fourth and will be keen to wrap up a post-season berth with victories over the Pack, who will likely have to leapfrog the UNBC Timberwolves (4-6-3), Fraser Valley Cascades (3-4-4) and the Heat to snare an unlikely spot in the playoffs. The WolfPack will conclude regular-season play with

matches against UNBC in Prince George on Oct. 19 and Oct. 20. “We still have a fighting chance and we will make sure we have the players ready to go Thursday against UBCO,” Antulov said. Justin Donaldson of Kamloops, the Pack’s only graduating player, will play one last time at Hillside Stadium on Saturday.

Canucks’ Biega gets his wish, traded to Red Wings for winger Pope BEN KUZMA

VANCOUVER SUN

Jim Benning did Alex Biega a favour Sunday. The long-serving, hard-working Vancouver Canucks defenceman was rewarded for his professionalism with a trade to the Detroit Red Wings for minor-league left winger David Pope. It’s a move that may allow the 31-year-old blueliner another crack at the NHL while adding to the Canucks’ forward depth. The Canucks have three set pairings and Oscar Fantenberg as the extra defenceman so Biega, who was placed on waivers last week along with Sven Baertschi and Nikolay Goldobin, was expendable. Biega has 36 points (4-32) in 179 regular-season games with the Canucks between the 2014-15 and 2018-19 seasons.

Captain Bo? The Vancouver Canucks are slated to unveil a new captain on Wednesday when they host the Los Angeles Kings at Rogers Arena for their home opener. Bo Horvat is believed to be the leading contender to wear the C for the Canucks, who opened the 2019-2020 NHL season with a pair of losses in Alberta last week, falling 3-2 to the Oilers before being shut out 3-0 in Calgary. The Kings are also winless, having dropped their season opener 6-5 to the Oilers in Edmonton on Saturday.

“I drafted Alex when I was with Buffalo, so I go way back with him and told him that he’s had such a great attitude for us and even when he wasn’t playing, he would

work his ass off,” said Benning, the Canucks general manager. “And he was good for our younger players to do the work every day and I gave him my word that we were moving on from him, but if I could find a spot in the league for him, I would try to work that out. “We have six or seven good, young D-men down in Utica that we want to play and Alex has been a good player for us with a good attitude and we wanted to do the right thing by him. And we’re at the point where we have good players who we can call up if we have injuries. “I want them to get minutes down in Utica in important situations because they’re knocking at the (NHL) door.” Benning cited a strong camp and preseason for Guillaume Brisebois and Jalen Chatfield and

the poise that Brogan Rafferty displayed with the puck has him on the fast-track. Olli Juolevi had a strong first game with the Comets, while Mitch Eliot is making progress. Ashton Saunter looks like he could see more NHL games this season and provides the depth that Biega brought when called upon. Pope, 25, spent the last four seasons at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and also played four years in the BCHL. The 6-foot-2, 197-pound winger was a fourth-round pick of the Red Wings in 2013 and has yet to play an NHL regular-season game. The Edmonton native is on an expiring contract that pays $US925,000 in the NHL and $70,000 in the minors. In his senior NCAA season in 2017-18, he managed 41 points (20-21) in 35 games.

Whitecaps coach keen after tough first year CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — Asked to describe his first year as coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps, Marc Dos Santos paused. “Challenging,’’ he said after several seconds. The description may be an understatement. The Whitecaps finished the regular season with a 1-0 loss to Real Salt Lake on Sunday, sealing their spot at the bottom of Major League Soccer’s Western Conference. The club’s 8-16-10 record was the second worst in the league, just behind expansion FC Cincinnati. Various issues off the field compounded the pitiful results and fans expressed their displeasure.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Marianne Eva Piller 1931 - 2019

Marianne Eva Piller (née Höedel) was born on the family farm just outside Killaly, SK on December 8, 1931 to Ewald and Elizabeth Höedel. From here, she had many childhood friends that she kept in touch with as she got older. She was married to Gordon Piller on July 8, 1952 in her hometown. They moved to Flin Flon, MB and started their family with the births of Sinclair, Clifford and Marilyn. Gordon found work in Regina where Lyle and Jeannie were born. The young family then moved to Kamloops, BC in 1970, where they lived for the next 34 years. During this time Marianne was heavily involved in her faith, which led her to become the President of the C.W.L. at Holy Family Parish. Her faith was first and foremost, which she instilled in her children. Upon Gordon’s retirement, they returned to their roots and moved back to Melville, SK where they renewed ties with old friends and family. After Gordon’s death, she came back to Kamloops where her three youngest children lived. She then reconnected with all of her friends at Holy Family Parish. On October 3, 2019, she passed away at the age of 88 in Kamloops Seniors Village. She is predeceased by parents Ewald and Elizabeth, husband Gordon, brothers Clifford, Claude and her sister Doreen. Also predeceased by sisters-in-law Isabel (Miller), Margaret, Mabel (Procnow), Alma, Pearl and brothers-in-law Sinclair (baby), Jack, Roddy, Chisholm, Ralph, George (Sapara). She is survived by her children Sinclair (Sharon), Clifford (Lisa), Marilyn, Lyle and Jeannie, as well as her sisters Delores, Alice (Bob) and her brother Harry (Lilian), sisters-in-law Carey, Agnes, Betty, Kay (Connell), Florence (Hahn) and brother-inlaw Archie, along with numerous nieces and nephews. She leaves behind nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Marianne will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. The family would like to thank Kamloops Seniors Village for their excellent care and the Holy Family Parish, the C.W.L. and Father Weisbeck for all their help at this time of need. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

A Vanished Friend

Around the corner I have a friend In this great city that has no end; Yet days go by, and weeks rush on, And before I know it a year has gone, And I never see my old friend’s face, For life is a swift and terrible race. He knows I like him just as well As in the days when I rang his bell, And he rang mine. We were younger then, And now we are busy, tired men, Tired of playing a foolish game, Tired with trying to make a name. “Tomorrow, I will call on Jim, Just to show that I am thinking of him.” But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And the distance between us grows and grows, Around the corner, yet miles away “Here’s a telegram, sir,” “Jim died today!” And that’s what we get, and deserve in the end, Around the corner a vanished friend! by Anders Lim

He will forever be missed by his wife of 46 years Sandra DeBaie Osborne, his sisters Sharon Warren and Linda (Mike) Farrington of Dartmouth, NS, five daughters Roberta (Gary) MacLaurin of Kamloops, Lisa (Laszlo) Nagy of Kamloops, Charlene (Rick) Bailey of Quesnel, Jacqueline Vickers of Calgary and his youngest daughter Kimberly Osborne of Kamloops, grandchildren Candice, Chantelle (Tim), Kathryn, Joshua (Susie), James, Shondra (Aaron), Kendall, Kenyan and his eight great-grandchildren. Ken was born and raised in Dartmouth, NS. He had a passion for buses at an early age. He drove for Dartmouth Transit from 1967 - 1979. He moved to Kamloops, BC in 1980, where he drove for Kamloops Transit until his last trip, on Friday, September 27, 2019. Ken loved his Cape Breton fiddle music, Trailer Park Boys and his trips home to Nova Scotia, along with his scratch tickets and his “Sammy” cat.

Birthe (Bea) Louise Jorgensen June 6, 1933 – September 24, 2019

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Bud.

Mom was born in Denmark and had a happy life working in the family business. All of the pictures of her show her beautiful smile. In 1959, she immigrated to Canada with her husband Paul, her two children and some close family friends. They settled in southern Alberta and after adding one more child to the mix, they moved to Kamloops.

He will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by family and friends.

Mom was a hard-working lady who enjoyed gardening, knitting, baking and canning. Although she had many interests, her greatest joys were the visits by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Their pictures adorn her walls and she didn’t hesitate to brag about her precious young ones. Home-baked cookies and cakes were always at the ready when anyone came to visit.

Bud is survived by his loving wife of 65 years Patsy, his brother Bus from Kamloops, his sons Donovan, Patrick and Douglas, their partners, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was also very proud to have been involved with the Royal Purple for 45 years. Bea is survived by her husband of 68 and a half years Paul and her children Mogens (Brenda) Jorgensen, Karin (Dawayne) McKenzie and Marion Heffernan (John). She leaves behind grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family in Denmark and some very dear friends. The family would like to thank ER nurse Matt and the professional ER team who were so compassionate during Mom’s short stay at RIH. A private gathering was held to honour Bea, a special lady, who was loved and will be missed by all who knew her. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

Play a good old Cape Breton fiddle song in his memory and remember the good times.

I’m Glad I Touched Shoulders With You

From Bob White’s Scrapbook There’s a comforting thought at the close of the day When I’m weary and lonely and sad That sort of grips hold of this crusty old heart And bids it be merry and glad. It gets in my soul, and it drives out the blues, And finally thrills through and through. It’s just a sweet memory that chants the refrain, “I’m glad I touched shoulders with you.” Did you know you were brave, Did you know you were strong, Did you know there was one leaning hard, Did you know that I listened and waited and prayed And was cheered by your simplest word? Did you know that I longed for that smile on your face, For the sound of your voice ringing true, Did you know I grew stronger and better because I had merely touched shoulders with you? I am glad that I live; that I battle and strive For a place that I know I must fill; I’m thankful for sorrows I’ll meet with a grin What fortune may send good or ill; I may not have wealth, I may not be great but I know I shall always be true, For I have in my life that courage you gave, When once I touched shoulders with you.

SUDOKU FUN BY THE NUMBERS

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Oct. 9, 2019, is my dad’s 81st birthday. He was born in 1938. This could be a puzzle using those four digits once each as numbers and addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and factorial to make expressions evaluating to the integers from 0 to 9. Well, I could not figure out expressions for 8 and 9, so the puzzle is with the digits in 10-09 (so 1, 0, 0 and 9). [n factorial is the product of the integers from 1 to n. 3 factorial (or 3!) = 6. Also, 0! = 1.]

ANSWERS

Answer to the Oct. 2, SQUARES PUZZLE

Excluding the centre 1X1 square means that only 36 squares can be counted — and this is the lowest number.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

Take advantage of an opportunity that you have been considering, Aries. If you know what you want, go out and make it happen. Do what it takes to impress others.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you are always ready to defend your own turf and quick to offer your opinions, even if it means being blunt. You may have to play it a little cool this week.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, hiding your feelings for some time is a recipe for unhealthy pressure. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind when your input is sought.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Cancer, it is a good idea to give people the benefit of the doubt, but don’t overlook your gut instincts. It is always a good idea to be cautious when meeting new people.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 You may have to make a tough choice this week, Leo. It involves choosing to engage in some recreational activities or head to work to put in extra credit. Trust your judgment.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you don’t have to have superhero levels of energy each and every day. If you are not feeling fully up to the tasks at hand this week, give yourself a well-earned breather.

OCTOBER 9 - OCTOBER 15, 2019 LIBRA

- Sept 23/Oct 23 You are typically deft at keeping your emotions on a short leash, Libra. But every once in a while you can’t fully rein things in. Others will understand an outburst is out of character.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22 There is a fine line between being a devoted employee and a workaholic, Scorpio. Scale back some of your hours, especially if work is affecting your home life.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You may have been spreading your wings to see just how many new things you can accomplish, Sagittarius. This week one of your goals really gets traction.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Capricorn, you may be feeling footloose and flirty over the next couple of days. This is the perfect time to spend with a significant other or find a romantic interest if you are single.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, you may be asked to be a peacekeeping referee when two people on the job need a mediator. Your thoughtful approach makes you an ideal person to handle the task.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20 Volatile feelings can be calmed with the help of some good companionship this week, Pisces. Channel your energy into something fun.
