Christmas Cheer money helping Kamloops survivors of brain injuries TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER tsullivan@kamloopsthisweek.com

A brain injury can be a traumatic, life-changing event, and because there’s no cure, prevention is absolutely vital. That’s one of the things that the Kamloops Brain Injury Association is focused on — reaching out to local groups like schools or workplaces or organizations like the Lions Club to talk about brain injury prevention. “If we can reach more people with prevention education, that’s a good thing,” said David Johnson, executive director for the KBIA. And Johnson stresses that they’re willing to come and talk with any group, completely free of charge. All you have to do is ask. But that’s only half of their focus. They also work directly with survivors of brain injury as well as those close to them with a variety of support groups and programs. “We’re trying to expand our caregiver support group,” Johnson said. “We’re not just here for the survivors. “We’d love to have more people join in on that.” All of this work takes money, and the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund was a vital part of the organization’s fundraising in 2019. The majority of the money went toward the basic costs of keeping the lights on and doors open. “It’s not very sexy,” Johnson said. “We focused on the basics, making sure there’s a place where survivors could come.” There were a few dollars available for some upgrades to their stained glass workshop, replacing some of the broken equipment and replacing a folding table with a proper table. They were also able to maintain some of their ongoing events like their annual trip to Paul Lake in the summer, which allows brain injury survivors who might

have mobility issues the opportunity to get into the great outdoors.

Johnson said that the organization has similar plans for this year’s Christmas Cheer funds, with a focus on covering operating costs and ensuring that their doors stay open. Even with the money, the Kamloops Brain Injury Society still needs to fundraise throughout the year to keep things running. To that end, they have plans in place for a new fundraiser for the summer of 2020.

The idea is to build a fundraiser around a tour of the many beautiful gardens in the area. “Kamloops has a lot of beautiful homes and beautiful gardens,” Johnson said. If you’d like to find out more about any of the Kamloops Brain Injury Association’s programs, or invite them to come and speak, contact them by phone at 250-372-1799 or by email at djohnson@kbia.ca.

Future of Hat Creek Ranch in jeopardy, group says

LOOK FOR OUR GREAT DEALS ON PAGES A12-A13

Society that operates historic property west of Kamloops says it is being hamstrung by new steps taken by province JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The society which has for nearly two decades run Hat Creek Ranch near Cache Creek is concerned about the heritage site’s long-term fate. Friends of the Historic Hat Creek Ranch board chair Robert Sharkey said more than $200,000 in bookings have been turned away and employee and volunteer morale are at an all-time low in the wake of soured negotiations with the province over site management. “If we are the operators say for 2021, we already know we have a hole in our revenues,” Sharkey told KTW. “Even if we continue and strike an amazing agreement, we’ve got to dig out of that hole.” Friends of the Historic Hat Creek Ranch formed in the 1990s to run as a heritage site an old ranch at the confluence of Hat Creek and the Bonaparte River with history dating back to the 1860s. Today, Hat Creek Ranch provides visitors insight into the gold rush, with original buildings and tour guides in period costumes. A 15-year agreement between the society and the province expired in 2018 and Sharkey said the society has since been provided a one-year conditional

extension, with another oneyear contract on the horizon. Other heritage sites in B.C., such as Barkerville, have received five-year-agreements, he said. Without long-term security, countless bookings — the majority of which are made more than one year out — have been turned away and Hat Creek’s 40 employees are left wondering whether they will have jobs in the future, Sharkey said. “If we continued like this, we’d have zero income and no employees,” he said. Adding to the frustrations, Sharkey said, is the fact he doesn’t know why the province is limiting contracts to one year. He said he believes it could be linked to recent provincewide initiatives to reconcile with First Nations. The province last week announced it will implement the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People.

Sharkey said the Bonaparte Indian Band also applied to manage the heritage site during the request for proposals stage, but was rejected. Calls from KTW to the band were not returned. “We just don’t understand what the management from the government is going on and why,” Sharkey said. “That’s where we sit.” Called for comment, Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource operations and Rural Development media relations officer Jeremy Uppenborn provided an email statement explaining the recent request for proposals sought to maintain current operations, ensure good value for public funds and “intertwined Indigenous and settler heritage” in interpretation and management. “None of the proposals offered this level of service, which is why we have asked the Friends of Historic Hat Creek Ranch Society to continue to operate the site for a further year under the terms of the present agreement,” the emails stated. Sharkey defended the board’s involvement of First Nations on the society board and in its content. Government officials refused to make anyone available to discuss the future of Hat Creek Ranch.

Beneficiary of an Estate? If you are the beneficiary of an estate, it may seem that you are at the mercy of the executor, even if that person is lazy, incompetent, or dishonest. Fortunately, there is a range of legal remedies available to a beneficiary – from the citation of an executor who has not applied to probate, a Court Order that the executor reimburse the estate for losses, or the actual removal of an executor for egregious delays, incompetence, or dishonest dealings. If you’re frustrated with an executor or suspect that an executor may be engaged in misconduct with regards to the estate, you should seek advice from legal counsel experienced in probate and estate matters.

Voters group urges caution to city hall when considering tax breaks Domtar, the city’s single largest taxpayer, is asking civic officials to implement fair heavy industry taxation rates JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A group of concerned citizens urged civic officials on Wednesday to proceed with caution when considering tax breaks for heavy industry that could impact residents’ pocketbooks and the city’s overall cost of living. “You don’t want to be focussed on one tax group at the expense of other tax groups,” Kamloops Voters Society director Randy Sunderman told KTW. The city’s finance committee has been tasked by council with reviewing a policy that pushes down over time the heavy industry property tax rate, due to high taxes paid in Kamloops compared to other cities in the province. The Kamloops Voters Society presented somewhat unexpectedly during the delegation portion of Wednesday’s meeting, appearing on a day when Domtar — the city’s largest single taxpayer — was scheduled to present to the committee tasked with reviewing the policy. Sunderman called for a “holistic” review and stressed the importance of methodology. When comparing the city’s heavy industry tax rates with other communities, Sunderman said, it is more important to look at communities with similar heavy industry makeup, not just like-sized communities. According to Sunderman, Vernon was used in the city’s previous comparison but it

“doesn’t have any heavy industry left.” The group said any property tax tweak may have a trickle effect that could impact costs of living, attraction of professionals and employees, business growth and more. “What we want is the city to use good comparisons and sound methodology to do a review of comparable heavy industry tax rates, when they’re looking at other communities,” Sunderman said. “It’s about the methodology.” Meanwhile, Domtar general manager Jean-Claude Allaire advocated for “fair” heavy industry taxation. He said the Kamloops mill has the highest property tax rate among its B.C. competition. Furthermore, the council policy capping heavy industry tax rates provides stability, he said, allowing him to seek further investment in the Kamloops facility. The cap allows Domtar to make investments in its property without taxes increasing, despite its overall assessment increasing. Investments in the property provide long-term stability for the mill, Allaire said, which employs 340 people. He pointed to sawmill closures around the province and called property taxes in Kamloops a “huge constraint” in obtaining investment. Allaire cited two significant capital investments in recent years and more expected in the future. “What we’re asking is to pay our fair amount of tax,” he told KTW. “We want to work with the city in order to bring it down to an average. We’re so far ahead. When we’re talking with Kamloops Voters Society, we can agree or disagree, respectfully, about the argument. The thing is, we’re so far ahead. We just want to reduce that gap.” Domtar is increasingly focussed on the pulp aspect

of its business, as demand for paper declines. Challenges, Allaire told KTW, include pricey fibre — resulting from a fibre shortage and expensive logs — as the price of selling pulp declines. Asked what he would tell a Kamloops resident whose taxes rose on average about $4 in 2019 as Domtar’s rate decreased, Allaire said the two interests do not conflict and noted Venture Kamloops estimates the mill provides 1,300 direct and indirect jobs. Allaire also pointed out during the meeting myriad community groups and events the company supports including the Kamloops Hospice Association, the Kamloops Blazers, Kamloops Ribfest, Eureka Science Camps, Raise-A-Reader, the Kamloops Food Bank, the United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo, Thompson Rivers University, PIT Stop and more. “When you’re talking about us,” he told the committee, pointing to the screen. “This is us.” In the end, the committee tasked staff with coming back to the committee next month with heavy industry tax rates in a variety of other communities. Also up for review is whether public delegations should be heard at the committee level or council as a whole. Coun. Mike O’Reilly said that while he found the Kamloops Voters Society presentation helpful, the scenario created a miniature council meeting, with information possibly better heard by all of council, which makes the final decision. Review of the new committee structure is expected in the near future. “To me, it doesn’t really matter whether there’s a delegation or not, it’s just knowing what the process is and how to get a delegation there or not and we can all play by the same rules,” O’Reilly said.

Police seek suspects in ATM thefts

Contact us for more information.

Incidents took place at Save-On Foods and Rexall drug store KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kamloops Mounties are looking for a pair of robbery suspects who used a chainsaw to slice into a pair of ATM machines last week. The thefts occurred last Tuesday and Wednesday, both during early morning hours at a pair of retailers in the city. According to police, two masked suspects smashed open the front door of the Valleyview Save-On-Foods at 3:45 a.m. on Oct. 22 and broke

into the ATM machine using a Stihl gas-powered chainsaw, stealing cash from within. Surveillance video shows the suspects driving away in a white pick-up truck that was reported stolen later that morning. The next morning, at about 1:15 a.m., two people broke into the Rexall Store off Highway 5A in Aberdeen and cut open an ATM using the same type of saw, making off with money from within. Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said surveillance video from the store shows the suspects were responsible.

BUY A POPPY AND REMEMBER It’s November, meaning the pillow cases are filled with treats and costumes and jack-o-lanterns are retired for another year. Now we turn our attention to a symbol of sacrifice, dedication and remembrance. For at least these next two weeks we should all take the time to think of the brave men and women who have fought for our country and remember to give back. Poppies are available all over the city at local retailers. Take the time to purchase one by donation from many fine veterans and cadets manning the tables. If your poppy should slip off your shirt and blow away in the wind, buy another one. If you have a friend, take two. If you have a poppy left over from years past, buy another one. Make sure you’re wearing a poppy over your heart come Remembrance Day, and wear it with pride. More importantly, don’t hesitate to donate generously when you get one. The money collected by the Legion from the sale of poppies goes to numerous worthwhile programs and services to assist our veterans. Through your donations the poppy funds are used for supports such as housing, transportation and health care for veterans. The money buys food, covers heating costs, medications and pays for accessibility modifications to assist veterans with disabilities, among a variety of other initiatives. The funds don’t only go to veterans, but also bursaries for children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of veterans and it supports cadet units. Last year the Kamloops branch of the Royal Canadian Legion raised $60,000 for veterans. This year let’s try to beat that number. It’s the least we can do for our veterans given the freedom they’ve ensured we have all year round. Lest we forget.

Wolf kill saving caribou

I

t would have come as a relief to many B.C. communities when Forests Minister Doug Donaldson told me in September his latest management plans for 20 endangered caribou herds will not require further industrial or backcountry bans. Now I understand why Donaldson was able to make that decision after intensive study and community meetings in the Cariboo, Kootenay and Peace regions, packed with people worried about the future of their already fragile resource economies. Plunging caribou populations are indeed a crisis, one that can be seen across Canada, all the way to the vast herds of Labrador and northern Quebec that are central to the traditional way of life of Indigenous people. That’s why the federal government is poised to invoke its species-at-risk legislation to impose further protection measures on B.C. It’s already too late for some of the 54 B.C. herds, despite protected areas, mothers and calves captured and held in maternity pens and an escalating program to control rising wolf populations by shooting them from the air. Donaldson acted on the latest report from ministry biologists, showing the first glimmer of hope. Three of B.C.’s largest herds in the South Peace have turned the corner from a steep decline toward extinction and are trending toward recovery. This is after the maternity

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In

VICTORIA penning program was extended from Kootenay herds to the South Peace and the wolf kill was stepped up over four years. “The decrease in wolf abundance across the South Peace area has shown conclusive evidence that intensive wolf reduction has halted and reversed the declining trends of the Klinse-Za, Kennedy Siding and Quintette caribou populations,” states the B.C. report submitted to Donaldson in August. The existing set aside areas are enormous and their effectiveness is questionable. By 2016, the area off limits to logging and road-building in South Selkirks was 2.2-million hectares, covering 95 per cent of prime mountain caribou habitat. The South Peace recovery plan covered 400,000 hectares of high-elevation winter habitat. As the B.C. Council of Forest Industries pointed out last year, banning forestry and mining is no magic answer. Caribou are declining in Wells Gray Provincial Park north of Kamloops and in Jasper National

Park in Alberta, where there has been no modern-day industrial disturbance. They’re gone from Banff National Park, which has been protected since 1885. Another strategy should be given credit — the efforts of local snowmobile and off-road clubs to keep prime habitat off-limits. This is backed up by Conservation Officer Service flights over key areas to enforce restrictions, a daunting task given the size and remoteness of regions. More people are becoming aware of the impact a single snowmobile track through deep snow can have, allowing wolves to quickly penetrate areas they could not otherwise reach. B.C.’s southern mountain herds have range extending into the United States and this region has had human settlement and industrial activity for longer than B.C.’s northern regions. The contrast between our efforts and those south of the border was highlighted by a sad news report earlier this month in the Revelstoke Review. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finally declared the whole population of southern mountain caribou endangered, months after they became locally extinct in the U.S. The last three animals in the cross-border herd, known locally as the Grey Ghosts, were captured and relocated to protective pens north of Revelstoke in January. It is hoped they can bolster a small herd there. Tom Fletcher is B.C. legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press Media.

The Conservatives had a higher portion of the popular vote, but the Liberals received the most seats. First past the post cheated in favour of the Liberals.

A fair result for the Greens is 22 seats, but first past the post gave them three seats, a penalty of 19 seats. A fair result for Independents is two seats, but first past the post gave them a penalty of one seat.

Ray Jones Kamloops ••• Editor: Re: (Editorial: ‘Will electoral reform ever arrive?’, Friday, Oct. 25): If 65 per cent of Canadians did not vote for the present government, it means 65 per cent of the votes cast were essentially of no value.

Instead of the previous multiple choice questions, which were confusing and unnecessarily complicated, have only one question, as in: Do you, as a Canadian, want your vote to count? Yes or No? If such a referendum shows 65 per cent or more of voters want their ballots to count, then it should be time for political leaders to man up and make the decisions needed to implement political reform.

Editor: I am concerned about the lack of cleanliness at the entrance to Royal Inland Hospital. Has anyone actually taken a good look at the new parkade?

TNRD exploring grant options for broadband JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Amid calls for improved cell and internet coverage, the Thompson Nicola Regional District is eyeing grant funding to assess broadband gaps throughout the region. TNRD director of community services Ron Storie said he will be bringing to the board in late 2019 or early 2020 an application for funding via Connecting British Columbia, a provincial program that helps pay for infrastructure to deliver high-speed internet to rural and remote areas. Storie said the board earlier this year identified broadband as a priority. Anecdotally, he said, rural services are lacking. Cities like Kamloops and Merritt are up to speed, whereas communities like Logan Lake, Pinantan, Clinton, Lytton, Paul Lake and Sun Peaks would benefit from improvements. “The CRTC has said thou shalt have a 50 megabyte upload speed and 10 megabyte download speed by such and such a time, or that’s what people should have now,” Storie said.

The CRTC has said thou shalt have a 50 “megabyte upload speed and 10 megabyte download speed by such and such a time, or that’s what people should have now.

— RON STORIE, TNRD director of community services

“I think at the end of the day, that’s what the board has said — let’s find out who’s got what, let’s come up with a strategy of who the service providers are, find out who’s got what, who needs what — what is it? Is it for emergency purposes? Is it for home-based businesses? Is it for Netflix? — and then come up with a strategy.” Calls for improvements can be heard throughout the region. BC Cattleman’s Association general manager Kevin Boon said the issue is widespread in B.C., worsening the farther one gets from major centres. Ranchers arguably feel it the most in rural, sparsely-populated areas. Boon detailed a situation wherein infrastructure is not keeping up with increasing digital demands. With more and more paperwork moving online, he said lengthy processes like water licensing applications are made

longer when available only by dial-up. “To comply, they have to make some other services available,” Boon said. “Or we need better internet connections in these areas.” The mayors of Clearwater and Vavenby have also called for internet improvements as ways to diversify their economies at a time when the forestry sector has taken a hit. Meanwhile, TNRD director Mel Rothenburger said in his electoral area (rivers and the peaks) cell phone coverage is at issue, impacting safety and commerce for about 1,000 residents.

He has brought it up at the TNRD on numerous occasions, as members of the Heffley Lake Community Association continue to lobby for improvements. Association vice-president Jim Davies said the group has invested a significant amount of time into the issue in recent years and he doesn’t understand why the road to Big White in Kelowna has cell coverage, while the road to Sun Peaks near Kamloops has “very limited to no cell coverage on the road.” Letters of support provided to KTW from various interest groups date back to 2016. Tk’emlups rural RCMP detachment has said increased cell coverage would benefit policing, with calls for service inaccessible via police car computer systems in places without cell coverage. Instead, rural police rely on old school radio. Sun Peaks residents and visitors know dead zones on their way up to the ski hill, which can be dicey when driving amidst winter road conditions. Sun Peaks mayor Al Raine penned a letter to Telus in 2017 requesting service, estimating 500,000 trips are made annually between Sun Peaks and

Heffley Creek. “With this volume of travel, there is obviously a large demand for cell service,” Raine wrote. Short-range improvements have been made. Cell service via Telus, Koodo or other Telus Mobility providers is accessible to the Heffley Lake campground and some properties on Mill Bay and Heffley Lake Road. However, not all residents can access the service and during a summer meeting on the issue, the association said it will continue pushing for cell coverage for as many residents as possible in the area. Rothenburger said he has spoken multiple times with Telus. At its core, the issue comes down to cost. A lack of business case provides minimal incentive to make improvements. A meeting with the minister of citizens services last year during the Union of BC Municipalities conference was “encouraging,” Rothenburger said, though nothing has since been done. It is unclear whether or not a TNRD gap analysis would include cell phone coverage, as Storie could not say at the time when he spoke with KTW.

Thompson steelhead numbers New grocery store hit new all-time low of 86 fish confirmed for space ABERDEEN MALL

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

There are now fewer steelhead trout in the Thompson River system than there are letters in this sentence. An October update from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations states that the current spawning population of the Thompson watershed is 86 fish. In the neighbouring Chilcotin watershed, 39 fish are expected to spawn. For the Thompson, that figure marks an all-time low in 43 years of data. For the Chilcotin, the number is an all-time low in 49 years of data. Each fish population remains in a state of extreme conservation concern. The previous low point was established in March 2018, prompting the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada — an advisory body to the government — to assess the populations as endangered. The body recommended an emergency order to place the fish on the endangered list under the

and conducting more science and monitoring activities. On Thursday, five interest groups penned a letter to Premier John Horgan, pleading for action to save Interior Fraser River steelhead. “Ocean survival, climate change and interception fisheries that use gill net are the three major factors attributed to the steep downward trend for Thompson and Chilcotin steelhead,” the letter reads, conceding that climate change and ocean survival are two factors that are beyond immediate control. “The non-selective gill net fishery on the lower Fraser River is something that can be regulated and must be done forthwith before IFS [Interior Fraser steelhead] become extinct,” the letter continues. The letter is signed by the BC Wildlife Federation, the British Columbia Federation of Drift Fishers, the British Columbia Federation of Fly Fishers, the Fraser Valley Angling Guides Association and the Steelhead Society of British Columbia.

City plans to smash pumpkins KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Don’t chuck your jack-o-lantern into the garbage after Halloween. Instead, chuck it off a truck. The city is taking additional steps this fall to keep jack-o-lanterns out of the landfill and its inaugural pumpkin smash event will take place on Nov. 2 on McArthur Island, where one can bowl with their pumpkin, smash it from the top of a bucket truck, get their face painted or strike a pumpkin piñata. City of Kamloops environmental services coordinator Emily Lomas said the event is part of the city’s continued efforts to decrease waste headed into the landfill. The city has always accepted pumpkins at its yard waste site to be composted for city parks and consumer use. In recent years, it has also set up designated pumpkin drop-off areas, a move Lomas said has worked well. The city averages more than 13,000 kilograms of pumpkins per year collected in November. However, it is unclear how many of jack-olanterns continue to be tossed in garbage bins after Halloween and, ultimately, take up room in city landfills. “We just thought that we could promote the composting process a little bit more,” Lomas said. The event on Saturday takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of soccer fields one and two on McArthur Island. Kamloops Fire Rescue will drop a jack-o-lantern from a substantial height at about 1 p.m.

A young Kamloops sex offender who violated conditions of his sentence barring him from visiting parks and libraries has been sentenced to spend seven months behind bars. But, after being given credit for time served, Jose Germain will be a free man by mid-November. The 21-year-old was arrested in June after a pair of incidents. On June 6, police found Germain in Riverside Park, violating a judge’s order prohibiting him from visiting parks or any places where young people might gather. On June 22, police were surveilling Germain when he entered the Thompson-Nicola Regional District Library on Victoria Street, violating the same order. He was subsequently arrested. Germain was handed a seven-month jail sentence, but will spend only 18 new days behind bars after being given credit for time served. Germain was convicted in 2016 of two counts of sexual assault and one count of making or publishing child pornography.

VICTORIA — British Columbia has introduced legislation that would eliminate the need to change the clocks twice a year with the creation of Pacific time. Attorney General David Eby said the Interpretation Amendment Act, if passed, would make daylight saving time permanent. He said the impetus for the change comes from a recent provincial government survey where more than 93 per cent of respondents, or almost 225,000 people, indicated their support for a permanent move to daylight time. But Eby said more consulting about the change is needed with its U.S. trading partners in the Pacific states of Washington, Oregon and California. The legislation does not change the schedule for the next time change this Sunday, when clocks fall back one hour to standard time. Researchers at Simon Fraser University and others are lobbying the government to consider making standard time permanent in B.C., saying it promotes healthy sleep and provides more morning daylight.

Cold-weather shelters slated to open soon KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Provincially funded extreme-weather shelters will soon begin to open across B.C., including more than two dozen beds in Kamloops. “During the colder months, it’s important that people experiencing homelessness in our province know that there is a place they can go to get warm and find supports and services that can help them stabilize their lives,” said Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “As we continue the work of building permanent housing, we’re proud to work in partner with communities and non-profit housing providers to provide these shelter spaces.” This winter season, the province plans to open almost 1,355 temporary shelter spaces and more than 820 extreme-weather response shelter spaces. In Kamloops, The Mustard Seed has 25 provincially funded extreme-weather shelter beds.

City weighing tax breaks for commercial builds JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The city is mulling tax breaks for developers to build commercial office space, similar to incentives already offered for residential builds. Ten-year tax holidays are currently provided as an incentive to build housing in North Kamloops and downtown. It works by freezing for a decade the assessed property value prior to construction. Coun. Mike O’Reilly said Kamloops is among limited communities in the province not providing such incentives for commercial builds and called it a “big void” in the city’s development strategy. He first raised the idea about a year ago during the election campaign. “This is going to help get developments off the ground in the downtown and North Shore,” O’Reilly told KTW. “If you take one look around downtown and North Shore, you see multiple residential buildings everywhere. That’s what you see because that’s what the tax exemption applies to. It doesn’t apply to new office buildings and,

DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE City council will consider whether to provide tax breaks for new commercial projects in downtown Kamloops, similar to a previous move made easing taxes for new residential construction in the city centre.

for new office [space], that means new jobs. That’s what this is about. It’s about getting jobs into our core areas.”

O’Reilly said the last major office building constructed downtown was Kelson Place, built more than two decades ago.

Asked about demand, he cited need for “high-quality” office space to attract out-of-town employers.

He noted a Rogers call centre that bypassed the River City, instead taking hundreds of jobs to Kelowna. “We didn’t even make the short list,” O’Reilly said, calling it “heartbreaking.” “They came to town and said, ‘You don’t even have anywhere for us to open, so we’re not going to come to Kamloops.’” Furthermore, O’Reilly said when the revitalization tax exemption was previously altered to include hotels, the Sandman Signature hotel was built on Lorne Street. “We know they work,” he said. “Whatever we apply them to, they work, and we want to see new offices and jobs in our North Shore and downtown core, and that’s the only area that this applies to.” The city formed an engagement group to look at the issue of revitalization tax exemptions. In a memo to two city committees, it recommended the bylaw be revised this year to include provisions for commercial developments. It is unclear when exactly those changes could come into effect. Further changes to the bylaw will be explored in 2020.

City expects about two weeks of delays remaining for West Victoria construction KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The city expects West Victoria construction to wrap up in about two weeks time. City of Kamloops capital projects manager Darren Crundwell said phase four utility work is nearly complete and the final paving stretch of the year, about 75 metres from Sun Life beneath Overlanders Bridge toward the Summit Connector, is scheduled for Nov. 10. That day or two of work will mark the end of paving for the year, but construction will continue to cause traffic delays until that time. “Unfortunately, where you go down to one lane there — especially when we had to cut across the road with the utility work, because we can only do half at a time — then we’re

impacting the road,” Crundwell said. “That is one of the worst points in terms of a traffic delay because everything coming off of Summit and going to the North Shore and anybody heading from downtown, heading up Summit, is impacted because everything comes to that pinch point. We’re through the worst of it. Paving and the last bit of concrete, that’s what’s left. The deep utility work through there was also challenging.” Crundwell said the weather is looking good in the final work days of 2019 and he expects the project to wrap up five months early, in June of next year. It was originally expected to take two full construction seasons, wrapping up in the fall of 2020. However, Crundwell said a new procurement process utilized for

the project focussed not on the least expensive contract but best value. He credited that decision for the reduced timeline. “Low price is not the only value

to the taxpayer, city, residents,” Crundwell said. Electrical work and further landscaping will be completed next year. “We’re just about there,” he said.

LinkUp looking toward future TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER tsullivan@kamloopsthisweek.com

LinkUp, the Venture Kamloops event that connects local entrepreneurs with a variety of resources and programs to help them succeed, is back for 2019 with a focus on the future. This year’s theme is Adapt and Innovate: The Future of Local Business. The keynote speaker will be Max Valiquette who is, according to Marketing Magazine, one of Canada’s most influential marketers. He is currently the Chief Strategy Officer at Diamond Integrated Marketing. “His background is marketing,” explained Jim Anderson, executive director of Venture Kamloops. “But he has a very sharp insight into the future of small business, and talking about innovation as a part of business in the future.”

But there’s a lot more to the day than the keynote, said Anderson. “There are three kind of facets to the day,” he said. “Panels, which have reps from different business organizations that have resources to offer. Round tables featuring entrepreneurs giving advice. “And then a trade show area where we’ll have a lot of the people who appear on the panels, as well as other business services” The first panel, called StartUp and Adapt, will feature Chelsea Hogan of Fern & Frond Floral Studio, Calli Duncan and Brianne Sheppard of Far & Wide and Franca Muraca, notary public. Next is the Entrepreneurial Innovation panel, with Lincoln Smith and John Zubak from Kamloops Innovation. The third and final roundtable, Expand & Innovate, will feature Colin Lyons of Lyons

Vancouver bus drivers plan strike action CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The union representing 5,000 bus drivers in Metro Vancouver says contract talks have broken off, setting the stage for the start of labour disruptions on Friday. Unifor had set a deadline at midnight on Thursday before taking action to back contract demands. The union said all transit operators will refuse to wear uniforms on Friday, and technicians and skilled trades workers will not work overtime. Unifor said in a statement the job actions are aimed at bringing attention to the dispute while causing minimum disruption for commuters.

Coast Mountain Bus Company said it made a fair offer to the union before talks broke off. In a statement, it said without maintenance overtime there will be bus and SeaBus cancellations. The SeaBus connects downtown Vancouver with the North Shore across the Burrard Inlet. Wages, benefits and working conditions are key issues in the dispute. The union voted 99 per cent in favour of strike action. It gave 72-hour strike notice earlier this week. The last transit strike in Metro Vancouver was in 2001 when a fourmonth walkout crippled the commute for hundreds of thousands of people.

Mike Smith, president of Unifor Local 2200, said workers declining overtime will quickly increase pressure on bus and SeaBus services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The system has normalized overtime, so without it, the turnaround for repairs and other maintenance will build up quickly,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said in the news release. Coast Mountain president Michael McDaniel said the company asked the union to take part in third-party mediation, but it refused. McDaniel said the company is offering significantly better wages and benefits and is addressing working conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This package would be greater than most other public sector settlements in B.C.,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said in the company statement.

Wildlife group raises pollution concerns after pelican hurt in B.C. lake CANADIAN PRESS

BURNABY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An endangered American white pelican faces a long recovery after being injured by some fishing line discarded in a British Columbia lake. The Wildlife Rescue Association says in a statement that the pelican, one of North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest birds, was stranded on an Okanagan lake near Oliver when the rest of its flock flew south for the winter. The bird was unable to fly because the discarded fishing line had badly damaged its left wing, causing several punctures and a large tear in the skin. A team was able to capture the severely dehydrated and emaciated pelican, and Wildlife Rescue said its medical team has determined there is a good possibility for recovery with long-term care and treatment. Janelle Stephenson, hospital manager for the non-profit association, urged the public to learn how to recognize and reduce risks to animals from discarded items such as fishing line.

The American pelican is an endangered species.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wildlife Rescueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help centre provides information to support the public by clarifying the steps needed,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stephenson said in the statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best outcome for wildlife is when rescue teams can respond quickly and provide immediate treatment to eliminate infection, starvation and potential death.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Deer struck twice on B.C. highway not killed, but six cars damaged

2019 BIG HORN CREW

SAANICH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A chain reaction crash involving six vehicles on Thursday was set off by two collisions with a deer on the Patricia Bay Highway near Saanich. Police said the crash happened when a northbound driver struck the deer and when that vehicle slowed it was hit from behind by another vehicle. The impact sent the deer into the southbound lanes of the highway where it was struck again, setting off a series of rear-end collisions. The deer survived and was seen running away from the highway. Saanich Fire and BC Ambulance said two drivers were treated at the scene and no one was transported to hospital. Police said four the vehicles involved in the crash had to be towed.

Anti-ISIL mission changes amid protests CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The Canadian military is being forced to adjust and temporarily curtail some aspects of its anti-ISIL mission in Iraq and Lebanon as anti-government protests rock the two countries and threaten to further destabilize the Middle East. The protests began weeks ago as anger and frustration over endemic corruption, unemployment and a lack of basic services drove thousands of citizens into the streets to call for change, prompting the prime ministers of both countries to announce their resignations this week.

Yet the protests have also been marred by violence as clashes have erupted between pro-government supporters and protesters in Lebanon, while more than 200 protesters in Iraq have been killed and thousands more injured, many allegedly at the hands of local security forces. In an interview with the Canadian Press on Thursday, Brig.-Gen. MichelHenri St-Louis, Canada’s top commander in the region, said his troops continue to train and support their Iraqi and Lebanese counterparts as part of the global fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Yet, he also admitted the protests have made it difficult at times for the

Canadians to move around, and forced them to occasionally pull back or suspend their work until they have a better understanding of the situation or the protests move on. “We have had to adjust some of our presence in the battlespace, or our road [movement] has had to be slightly adjusted at the peak of these demonstrations,” St-Louis said by telephone from his headquarters at the Ali Al Salem air base in Kuwait. “So just a matter of continuing to revise our force protection, our measures, the threat and then adjust ourselves accordingly to what’s transpiring on the ground.’’

Fire on moving train kills 71 passengers in central Pakistan ASSOCIATED PRESS

MULTAN, Pakistan — A massive fire caused by a cooking gas stove erupted Thursday on a train travelling in Pakistan’s eastern Punjab province, killing at least 71 passengers, officials said. Flames roared through the train cars as the train approached the town of Liaquatpur in Punjab, they said, the latest tragedy to hit Pakistan’s dilapidated, poorly maintained and mismanaged rail system. Survivors recounted horrific scenes of fellow passengers screaming as they jumped through the windows and off the train, flames billowing from the carriages. “We could hear people crying and screaming for help,” said Chaudhry Shujaat who had boarded the train just a few hours earlier with his wife and two children. “I thought we would die. The next car was on fire. We felt so helpless.” Deputy Commissioner Jamil Ahmed said the fire broke out when a gas stove exploded as breakfast was being prepared on board. He added that the death toll had risen steadily since the early morning. Kaleem Ullah, an official with the district emergency services, says of

the 43 people injured, 11 were still in critical condition. Several of the injured had jumped off the train — many to their deaths — after the fire broke out and before it eventually screeched to a halt, said Ahmed. Survivors said it took the train nearly 20 minutes to come to a halt after the fire broke out and passengers began screaming for help. Some pulled at emergency cords that weave through the train to notify the conductor. Ghulam Abbas, a passenger who had gotten on the train in the town of Nawabshah in neighbouring Sindh province with his wife and two children, recounted watching panicked passengers jumping off. “We learned afterward that most of them had died,” he said. His wife, Sulai Khan Bibi, said she was horrified what would happen to their two small children. “We were so close to death, but Allah saved us,” she said, clutching the children. In Pakistan, poor passengers often bring their own small gas stoves on the trains to cook their meals, despite rules to the contrary, according to Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed. Safety regulations are often ignored in the overcrowded trains.

U.S. role in Syria grows more complex with Trump’s claim to region’s oil ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — By claiming a right to Syria’s oil, President Donald Trump has added more complexity — as well as additional U.S. forces and time — to an American military mission he has twice declared he was ending so that troops could come home. Extending the mission to secure eastern Syria’s oilfields happens to fit neatly with the Pentagon’s

UK platforms shown LONDON — Britain’s upcoming election is all about economic and social issues and is a oncein-a-generation chance to transform the country, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said Thursday as he kicked off his party’s election campaign. Corbyn outlined the left-of-centre party’s plan to take on the “vested interests” that he said are hurting ordinary people, as he attempted to move the election battle away from the political turmoil swirling around Brexit.

dible tarantula, deep fried grasshoppers and crispy worms oozing a succulent liquid. This wasn’t exactly on my agenda but bug-infested foodie markets are just some of the unexpected pleasures in store when travelling through rural Cambodia. Along with the wonders of Angkor Wat, Bayon and other fabled temples, you’ll find clusters of clay-brick homes rooted among rice paddies, silk farms and hardworking fishing villages on stilts where low tides maroon fishing boats in the muddy quagmires. Temples and arachnids aside, my trip to this still-developing country actually involved a more personal mission: to understand the probable fate of Fila and Lily Tan. These delightful sisters had been my best friends at school in England. The gentleness of their names reflected their natures so sadness of their sudden disappearance from my life has stayed with me all these decades. By scanty accounts, they were becoming too westernized so had been repatriated before western values took hold. But this all happened during the lead-up years to the Pol Pot regime and the bloody violence of the Khmer Rouge so as Lily and Fila grew into womanhood, I often wonder how — and if — they survived. For anyone wanting to appreciate the vibe of today’s Cambodia, a visit to the Killing Fields is worthwhile, albeit haunting education, and Tuol Sleng prison, a school that the Khmer Rouge converted into a torture centre, is a gruelling witness to the regime’s cruelty. One of the original classrooms now exhibits photographs of for-

mer prisoners. I looked into their sunken eyes and thankfully none belonged to either Fila or Lily. I light a joss stick of remembrance and move on. To visit this side of Cambodia’s history is to explore the dynamics of a country that is only just now finding its footing as an independent nation free of despots and invasions. Tribunals involving the Cambodian genocide only came to a conclusion in 2014 with the conviction of Pol Pot’s high command.

Lesser known is the fact that, although deposed in 1979, Pol Pot himself remained an important member of Cambodia’s coalition government until 1993. Like many communist countries, politics of today and yesteryear are not openly discussed. It’s only against this backdrop that you can appreciate the resilience and happy generosity of the Cambodian spirit. Especially in the countryside where villagers still work co-operatively for the greater good of the

community and family holdings are still farmed in much the same way as in previous generations. Learning to speak English is seen as the passport to a better life and, as dusk falls, it’s not unusual to hear youngsters singing their numbers and nursery rhymes before supper. As a visitor, pack a deck of playing cards (and be ready to teach a game or two) as well as some children’s books. Although the countryside has yet to yield to the strains of tour-

ism, evidence abounds that this is changing. Travelling the highways is to see a mess of construction be it hotels, homestays or souvenir supermarts with western toilets and plenty of parking for tour busses. Angkor Wat epitomizes the growing tourism picture. As the country’s number one draw, it attracts over one million visitors a year although the jungle-engulfed Ta Prohm is almost as popular — in large part because of the blockbuster movie, Tomb Raider. Filmed in 1991, it was the first movie to be shot here since Lord Jim in 1965 and it prompted a meteoric rise in Cambodia’s hitherto non-existent movie industry. Not only did Tomb Raider employ 400 locals as extras (including 100 Buddhist monks), the $10,000/day location fee contributed to the preservation of Angkor Wat. In terms of a more commercial legacy? Head for the nearest bar and enjoy a Tomb Raider cocktail — a blend of Cointreau, soda and lime, said to be Angelina Jolie’s favourite drink during filming. As for the famed Angkor Wat, the complex is filled with intriguing carvings, detailed reliefs and extraordinary ornamentation that reveal an antiquity of unheralded wisdom, history and storytelling. Be prepared to join the throngs of early risers to watch the sun come up over the temple tops. Get ready for long waits to climb the steepest stairs to the central tower. Then, follow the sound of Buddhist chants to where monks with perpetually happy faces will bless you with a corded bracelet for protection, joy and good luck. And with those sentiments tied around your wrist, how could you not try some toasted tarantula? Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper syndicate.

Rock royalty to teach pop culture class at TRU Former Stones manager takes up teaching MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

F

amed music manager Andrew Loog Oldham hopes to have another hit — this time in a Thompson Rivers University classroom. Oldham, who propelled the Rolling Stones into the spotlight as their first manager, will be guest lecturer of a new class on the evolution of pop culture this winter semester at TRU. Rock Dreams: A History, 1954 to 1984 – Up Close and Personal with Andrew Oldham, will run Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. starting in January. In class, Oldham said, he will be talking mainly in parables. “The people that I’m talking about, the stories, will be applicable to the life students are going to have regardless of what they decide to do as work,” he said, relating his teaching of the class to putting a record together. Dean of arts Rich McCutcheon described the course as one of the most unique classes the university has ever put together, offering students a window into a period of pop culture Oldham helped influence. “Andrew has lived an extraordinary life. He’s walked in celebrity circles, he’s witnessed pop culture as it was unfolding and he was in the middle of it,” McCutcheon said. In the 1960s, Oldham did public relations for the Beatles and produced Stones hits like Paint it Black,

Get off My Cloud and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. The class he’ll now teach is a collaboration between TRU’s arts department and the culinary arts and tourism program, and involves 10 two-hour talks with Oldham during the 13-week program. TRU’s Bruce Baugh from the philosophy department and Billy Collins from tourism management will co-teach the class, which will involve elements of history, philosophy and music management. “We’re trying to avoid the straight historical narrative and will focus more on themes and ideas,” Collins said. The three-credit course, which will have assignments and grades, can also be audited, meaning interested students and members of the general public can sign up. Signup is first-come, first-served and capped at 100 seats, 12 of which have already been taken. Anyone interested in taking the $650 course can sign up online or via phone at 250-828-5200. Oldham, who has some previous experience and an interest in teaching, was connected with TRU through his business associate Gary Procknow, who attended NorKam senior secondary in the 1960s and has a sister working at the university. Oldham lives part-time in the Lower Mainland and will drive up weekly for classes at TRU, where he will also have an office.

‘I had absolutely no desire to become a manager’: Andrew Loog Oldham From A23

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Andrew Loog Oldham, manager of the Rolling Stones from 1963 to 1967, will teach a course at Thompson Rivers University beginning in January.

In 1963, at the age of 19, Oldham began managing the Stones. He held the job until 1967. He met the band while working as a press agent. “I used to go and hustle a journalist in the pub in Soho,” Oldham said. “I had absolutely no desire to become a manager.” The journalist, who Oldham would encourage to write stories about his clients, told him about a group called the Rollin’ Stones who were causing weekly pandemonium at the Crawdaddy Club in the Richmond Station Hotel just outside of London, England. Going to see what all the fuss was about, Oldham was impressed, describing the feeling as a wave that came over him. A week later, he approached the

Stones with partner Eric Easton about managing them. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee is known for producing some of the Stones’ greatest hits and cultivating their bad boy image. He said he’s pleased the band is still touring today. “When you work with people between the age of 19 and 23, you really don’t know what the full shape of them is going to become,” he said. When it comes to successful music management, Oldham said, “there’s no rules, it’s magic, it’s a marriage,” and each group must find the person who works. “Some bands from the beginning require bean counters, other bands in one way or another need to be told who they are and then they hopefully become it,” Oldham said.

Red Collar pub to mark five years with birthday bash

New venue will host album release party for local band

Three days of events includes a brewery tour, brunch, three live acts and two DJs

STAFF REPORTER

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Red Collar will expand its offerings — and its physical space — as part of its fiveyear anniversary. Up to 300 people can be admitted and parts of the brewery itself will be opened to those in attendance at a special event held over three days at 355 Lansdowne St. Things will start off on Friday with a special tasting of five years of Black Dog Quad. Tasting sessions include a brewery tour and will be one hour each and limited to 15

patrons at a time. They will run on the hour from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A waiting list sign-up is available online at tinyurl.com/redcollar-tasting. The cost is $25. On Saturday, the birthday party will feature three live bands and two DJs, arcades, beer, carnival-themed food and offerings from Eats Amore. Bands include Kamloops’ At Mission Dolores, Jared Jackel’s Bad Vibrations of Penticton and Groceries from Victoria. DJs Ronan McGrath of Barnacle

Records and Geezbeats will also have sets. Entry to the Saturday event is free, with food and beer offered through tickets, beginning at 5 p.m. If you’re hungover on Sunday and craving a little hair of the dog that bit you, head in for a beer-paired brunch. Four beers will be paired with three courses of breakfast foods. Brunch will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $45 per person. Sign-up is available online at tinyurl.com/red-collarbrunch.

other Sun released its debut album in August, but wanted to let the locals stew on it a little before marking the occasion with a release show. But now the time has come, and the band’s psychedelic sounds will soon be shared with a Kamloops audience at a venue that has just opened itself up to music acts. Mother Sun will play a release show for its debut 10-track album, Caramel Clouds, on Saturday, Nov. 9, at Blackwell Hall in the Plaza Hotel. Emilio Pagnotta,

one of the band’s guitarists and singers, said if things go well at the Plaza, it might turn into a new regular place for local bands to play. “Not that we don’t want to play at the Blue Grotto and everywhere else, because those places are great, but this will be like a breath of fresh air,” he said. “We’re trying to create a new scene to bring some new bands in.” Part of establishing that new scene will be Mother Sun’s psychedelic setup at this event, which will include stage projections and lighting. “Vancouver has so many of these venues that have projections and weird walls with velvet and stuff like

that. We’re not getting that, but we want to bring a little bit of it to Kamloops,” he said. The evening will also include live painter Kelly Wright, a Kamloops muralist whose most recently unveiled work was at McDonald Park on the North Shore. He will be marking up canvasses beginning at 7 p.m. A local DJ will also be performing. M.Naps will spin records from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Ghost Woman will also perform. Mother Sun connected with the Lethbridge-based band on their most recent tour, which took them to Banff, Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Lloydminster. The lack of overhead at the new venue is one

reason Mother Sun is able to bring in a band like Ghost Woman. Normally the up-front cost associated with renting out a venue like the Pavilion Theatre would make such a performance prohibitively expensive. Pagnotta said the band has been handed the reins to put on a good show at the Blackwell and is embracing the opportunity. “It’s giving us the chance to create a different vibe,” he said. Tickets are $5, available at Barnacle Records, 290 Third Ave., or $10 at the door. Entry to the show venue can be made off the 200-block of 4th avenue near the Plaza Barbershop.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

When? Thursday, November 7th, 2019 at 1:15 PM The Thompson-Nicola Regional District Board of Directors gives notice that it will hold a Public Hearing in the TNRD Boardroom, 4th Floor - 465 Victoria Street, Kamloops, BC, to consider proposed Bylaw Nos. 2694 and 2695. What is Land Use Contract Termination & Zoning Amendment Bylaw 2694, 2019? Proposed Bylaw 2694 would terminate Land Use Contract (LUC) Agreement Bylaw 240. It will shift land use regulation to Zoning Bylaw 2400, resulting in 1801 & 1805 Paul Lake Road, shown on map at right (legally described Lot 1, District Lot 4570, KDYD, Plan 39714; and Strata Lots 1-38, District Lot 4570, KDYD, Strata Plan K314 Together with an Interest in the Common Property in Proportion to the Unit Entitlement of the Strata Lot as Shown on Form 1) being rezoned to LR-2: Lakeshore Residential Multi-Family but with a site-specific amendment to allow a density of 1 unit per 625m2 (40 units). The particulars of Bylaw 2694 are available in our offices or on our website. The proposed Bylaw would implement the zone closest to the permitted uses and parcel area of LUC 240. What is Zoning Amendment Bylaw 2695, 2019? It amends Zoning Bylaw 2400 by rezoning vacant land near Kanaka Bar, ~10 km south of Lytton west of the Trans-Canada Highway on Kanaka Station Road (legally described District Lot 4, Kamloops (Formerly Lytton) Division Yale District, except Plan B726) as shown shaded on map at right, from RL-1: Rural to a special Comprehensive Development Zone to allow an affordable housing complex comprising single family dwellings, two family dwellings, multi-family dwellings and a community hall. Future uses also include smallscale agricultural and renewable energy generation. All persons who believe that their interest in property may be affected by the proposed Bylaws shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard at the Public Hearing. Additionally, they may make written submissions on the matter of Bylaw 2694 or 2695 (via the options below) which must be received at our office prior to 9 a.m. on the 5th day of November, 2019. The entire content of all submissions will be made public and form a part of the public record for this matter. How do I get more information?

hilippe Druillet’s stories are a borderline psychotic and incomprehensible madness. Let me tell you about The Night. You may recall a couple months back when I wrote of Yragael/Urm The Mad by the Métal Hurlant/Heavy Metal magazine co-founder. The Night somewhat has more of a narrative structure to it than Druillet’s other work, but only barely, and it begins to dissolve and the story races towards its end. The book is also wrought with primitively used expletives, which arguably help with comprehension, but that’s doubtful as well. From a certain point of view, there are seemingly two kinds of comic creators: storytellers and artists. Druillet is probably not the former, at least that’s not his strong suit. The Night was created after his wife died from cancer in 1975. It is an act of expression, loosely tied to a narrative. It is dark, bleak and inevitable, a strange story about drug-fueled biker gangs battling each other and an authority in a post-apocalyptic world. Chaotic and uncontrollable forces of youth crash toward the undeniable result that awaits us all. Part hatred of death and part acceptance of the dawn after the night, it is some kind of struggle indeed.

NICK KLIE

COMIC KAM

It is uncertain what answers Druillet was looking for, or if he ever found them. It is also difficult to discern who he was more angry with: the disease or the doctors who failed to save his wife. Again, it was 1975, hope was likely fleeting. The whole story is certainly some sort of catharsis for Druillet, fuel for his nightmarish and maddening landscapes and architecture, populated with all manner of hyper-detailed mutants and monsters. Truly some sort of bizarre tribute to his wife. Nick Klie is manager of High Octane Comics. For more, visit 250 Third Ave. or call 250-377-8444.

Rouault dynasty building WolfPack legacy MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

M

ike Rouault said he is the best basketball player in his family. That bold statement could cue a Rouault Royal Rumble. “Everything is competitive at our house,” said Megan Rouault, Mike’s younger sister. Megan, 20, and Mike, who turns 23 in November, will both be in action for TRU WolfPack basketball teams against the Trinity Western Spartans of Langley on Friday at the Tournament Capital Centre, continuing the Rouault dynasty that began when eldest brother, Brett, joined the club in time for the 2010-2011 Canada West season. “They have a great work ethic that’s obviously been instilled from what they get at home, but I think also through the discipline of sports,” said Scott Clark, who is entering his 10th season as the WolfPack men’s basketball team’s head coach. “They’ve developed the desire. “Competitive people, when they lose a game of cards, they are a little choked about the whole situation.” The family moved to Vernon when Megan was in Grade 5 and the Okanagan city remains the Rouault home base. Parents Dave and Debbie have become Highway 97 WolfPack superfans. Pick-up basketball tilts — often featuring Brett and Megan versus Mike and Mitchell, the second eldest sibling and the only one who did not play for the Pack — did not always end well when the Rouaults were growing up. “I definitely didn’t take any mercy on her [Megan] on the court,” said Mike, who is entering his fifth season with the WolfPack and his final year of U Sports eligibility. “I think that made her better in the long run.” Added Megan: “I don’t really care if people push me around now. I’ve been used to it for my whole life.” Clark is in a good position to talk about the Rouault siblings. When Brett was married, Clark was there. Clark’s own son was roommates with Brett at TRU. Next season will mark Clark’s first at the school without a Rouault on his roster. “I knew he [Brett] was a quality student, a quality athlete, quality kid, so I wanted him to live with my son,” Clark said of Brett, who is now studying at medical school.

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Megan Rouault is one of two siblings taking to the court this season for the TRU WolfPack. Her older brother, Mike, plays for the men’s team, for whom eldest brother Brett used to toil. Both squads will be in action this weekend against Trinity Western. The Pack’s home openers are scheduled for Friday at the TCC.

“They’re very intelligent people.” Each Rouault sibling has a perfect record when it comes to being a U Sport Academic All-Canadian, which means competing for a varsity team and maintaining at least an 80 per cent average over the school year. The quick math: 11 WolfPack seasons in the books for the Rouaults equals 100 per cent Academic All-Canadian years. You can probably guess why they strive for excellence in the classroom. “I think it’s just because Brett was first and he was always super good at school,”

said Megan, who is studying to be a software engineer. “We took him as a role model and wanted to be like him.” Added Mike: “If somebody doesn’t get a good mark, we’ll be on the person. We’re competitive about that, too.” Mike, who is planning to go to law school, racked up bragging rights in a big way in 2018-2019. He earned the Cliff Neufeld Leadership Award for a second straight year and was named the Doctor Roger H. Barnsley Scholar Award winner.

Brett won the Barnsley Award in 2014 and 2015. “I’ve got to keep up now,” said Megan, who, along with Mike, helps lead the WolfPack’s Monday night study group, the PACE program. An off-season full of hard work will begin to pay off on Friday, although Megan is recovering from a dislocated shoulder and her playing status for this weekend is undecided. See WOLFPACK, A30

Rookie of the year MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Braden Vankoughnett picked up the phone in a hurry. The Kamloops Broncos’ coach had just seen film of Abe Fimbo in six-man football action in Saskatchewan and his talent radar was sounding off. “From the day I gave my tape to Kamloops, he instantly contacted me and said he wants to make me a great linebacker, a great player,” said Fimbo, who turns 18 in December. “That’s a big impact. I’ve never had a coach put that much time into making me a great player.” Fimbo was this week named the B.C. Football Conference’s rookie of the year for 2019, a season in which he racked up 38 solo tackles, three assisted tackles, six special teams tackles, one fumble recovery, one blocked kick and three passes defended in nine games.

“He chases the ball down,” Vankoughnett said. “When he gets there, he gets there with an attitude and he punishes people. “He came in never having played 12-man football and dominated the league as a rookie.” Fimbo, who stands six feet tall and weighs about 210 pounds, endured an 0-10 campaign, the Broncos’ second consecutive winless season. “I don’t like losing at all, but I didn’t care if we were winning or losing, I loved the experience of playing for an organization like the Broncos,” said Fimbo, who plans to return to Kamloops next year. “I wasn’t expecting to get any awards this year. My teammates and coaches had faith in me.” Vankoughnett was among the believers. “I’m super excited for the guy,” he said. “It couldn’t have happened to a better player, a better athlete.”

Badminton players wanted A drop-in badminton group is looking for new players. Shuttlecocks fly from October to May from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays in the Our Lady of Perpetual Help church gym (635 Tranquille Rd.). Male and female players ages 16 and older are invited.

Bawa gets call to Hall MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Robin Bawa is a trailblazer, the first player of South Asian descent to play in the NHL. He will be inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame in the pioneers’ category on June 4 during a gala at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Bawa’s hockey path was paved in Kamloops. The former Kamloops Junior Oiler and Blazer returned to the Tournament Capital this summer for the first time in about a decade to attend the WHL club’s alumni tournament at Rivershore Golf Links. “My most memorable moment was having Ken Hitchcock as a coach,” said Bawa, the 53-year-old Chemainus product. “Ken, Donnie Hay and Donnie Moores, they did wonders for my game and helped my career in the longterm.”

Bawa, a forward, racked up 288 points, including 118 goals, in 307 games for the Blazers. The 1986-1987 campaign was his graduating season. The skilled junior player was not drafted into the NHL, but transitioning into an enforcer role boosted his stock and he made his Washington

Capitals’ debut in 1989-1990 after productive seasons in the International Hockey League and American Hockey League. Bawa played in 61 NHL games, with stints in Washington, Vancouver, San Jose and Anaheim. He bounced around the AHL and IHL in a 12-year pro career,

retired in 1999, moved back to Canada in 2002 and, along with his cousin, took over his dad’s Delta-based transportation business. “Both my boys play,” Bawa said. “It’s all about skill. It’s nothing about fighting or hitting anymore. “They have different skills coaches and trainers. We didn’t have that when we were young. We had our dad teaching us. The game has come a long way and it’s good to see.” The B.C. Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2020 includes Sonja Gaudet, Alex Stieda, Jeff Francis, Brent Johnson and Kirk McLean in the athletes’ category; Harry White, Bill Mitchell and Valerie Johnson in the builders-coaches’ category; the 19791980 Victoria Vikes’ basketball squad in the team category; and Cleve Deenshaw in the media category. Kathy Newman will receive the W.A.C. Bennett Award.

TRU SOCCER MEN OUSTED IN ROUND 1 Squeaking into the playoffs was an accomplishment for a team that dealt with injuries all season, but the TRU WolfPack’s post-season tenure was shortlived. The Mount Royal Cougars of Calgary edged the visiting WolfPack 2-1 last Saturday, ending TRU’s bid for a third consecutive Canada West men’s soccer medal. “Tough loss and disappointing way to end the season,” WolfPack head coach John Antulov told TRU Sports Information. “But very proud of the group being able to make the playoffs three years in a row. That is great for our program. We came up a little short today and were not at our best.” TRU, which won Canada West bronze in 2017 and 2018, endured spells this season in which as many as eight players were sidelined with injuries or sickness. Leading WolfPack scorer James Fraser had eight goals in eight games when he was lost for the season with an injury. He cracked the Canada West men’s soccer second all-star team, despite missing nearly

half of the season. Midfielder and captain Jan Pirretas Glasmacher was named to the conference’s first all-star squad. The WolfPack earned two victories over the UNBC Timberwolves in Prince George on the final weekend of the regular season to finish with six wins, five losses and five ties. TRU leapfrogged into the fourth and final playoff position allotted to Pacific Division teams with a winning percentage of .479, edging the UBC Okanagan Heat (.458) and Fraser Valley Cascades (.422). The club also started poorly in 2018, but recovered in time to make the playoffs. Justin Donaldson of Kamloops is the WolfPack’s only graduating player. “Really optimistic about the future and the group of players coming back and the new players coming into the program,” Antulov said. “We will just continue to keep the program at the level where it is at and take it a little further.” SILVER LINING The TRU WolfPack claimed

silver at the national college baseball championship in Toronto. Tyler Moskalyk pitched well and went the distance on the mound for the Pack in the tournament final on Saturday, but the Durham Lords edged TRU 2-1 in extra innings. TRU took the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning when Vance Fode doubled to right field, scoring Taylor Van Ham. Durham tied it in the top of the fifth inning and scored the winning run on a WolfPack error in the top of the eighth inning. RUNNING WITH THE PACK The TRU WolfPack crosscountry running team was in action last weekend in Calgary at the Canada West championships. Zoe Painter of Whitehorse led the TRU women, posting a time of 34 minutes and 38 seconds in the women’s eightkilometre race to place 58th. Calum Carrigan was the top male WolfPack runner, finishing 63rd in the 10-kilometre event with a time of 36 minutes and 14 seconds.

It’s my challenge to beat Brett because he’s out of shape and old now.” The Rouault Royal

Rumble might ruin Christmas dinner. Mike, a 6-foot-5 guard, and Brett, a 6-foot-4 guard, missed out on being TRU teammates by one season. “I went to UBCO [UBC Okanagan] for my first year and got cut [from the basketball team],” Mike said. Clark found a spot for Mike on his team in time for the 2015-2016 season, the year after Brett’s graduating campaign. “I said he can come here and work his way

You could tell his game was going to expand.” That rookie season remains the highlight of Mike’s basketball career with the WolfPack, who won Canada West silver and reached the U Sports championship tournament in 2016. Both of TRU’s basketball teams dropped the final six games of 2018-2019, losing streaks that resulted in missing the playoffs. Neither Rouault is thrilled about that. Expect both to do their part in making sure it doesn’t happen again. The dynasty depends on it.

FAITH

Society of Jesus: Not an order for the lazy

T

here have been many religious orders founded over the centuries. Some are wellknown and still in operation to this day, such as the Dominicans, Franciscans, Cistercians, Oblates and Trappists. Father Paul LeJeune, who left his name and his legacy in this community, was an Oblate. Religious communities often had an inspirational founder, who started with a specific mission in mind, such as providing alms to the poor, or provision of educational or medical services. Others were specifically dedicated to prayer and contemplation. (For example, we have a community of Carmelite nuns at a monastery near Armstrong.) The founding group would apply to the pope at the time for official recognition of

FAITH

their name and their particular mission. The Society of Jesus, more commonly called the Jesuits, is one such order. It was founded in 1534 by Ignatius of Loyola, a nobleman and former soldier from the Navarre region of Spain. It was formally recognized by Pope Paul III in 1540. Loyola wrote a small book, Spiritual Exercises, which detailed the spiritual requirements of any who would wish to join the order. I have a copy of it in my library and what impressed me

most about it was its discipline and very demanding regimen. This is not an order for the lazy. Clearly, Loyola brought the rigorous demands of his military background when formulating his program. The opening statement of Loyola’s Exercises gives a pretty good summary of what he expected: “Whoever desires to serve as a soldier of God beneath the banner of the Cross in our Society, which we desire to be designated by the Name of Jesus, and to serve the Lord alone and the Church, his spouse, under the Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Christ on earth, should, after a solemn vow of perpetual chastity, poverty and obedience, keep what follows in mind. “He is a member of a Society founded chiefly for this purpose: to strive especially for the defence and propagation of the faith and for the progress of souls in

Christian life and doctrine, by means of public preaching, lectures and any other ministration whatsoever of the Word of God, and further by means of retreats, the education of children and unlettered persons in Christianity and the spiritual consolation of Christ’s faithful through hearing confessions and administering the other sacraments. “Moreover, he should show himself ready to reconcile the estranged, compassionately assist and serve those who are in prisons or hospitals, and indeed, to perform any other works of charity, according to what will seem expedient for the glory of God and the common good.” The Jesuits have had a huge impact over the centuries. They insisted on high levels of education for their membership and were instrumental in the foundation of many schools and universities.

Quebec Muslims ‘need to be patient’ in face of rejections, mosque founder says GUISEPPE VALIANTE

CANADIAN PRESS

MONTREAL — When residents north of Montreal learned of a plan to transform a local church into a mosque and Islamic cultural centre, the reaction was so strong that parish leaders invoked the 2017 mass shooting of Muslims in Quebec City to justify putting the project on hold. Members of the diocese of Trois-Rivieres, Que., located along the St. Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City, sent a litany of angry and threatening emails to the parish. Others spoke out during public consultations held earlier in October. Rene Beaudoin, a parish member leading a committee on the future of the region’s churches, said the outcry made diocesan Bishop Luc Bouchard think of the six Muslim men shot dead in a Quebec City mosque in 2017. The Bishop decided to stop the sale. “He absolutely didn’t want something like that happening in Trois-Rivieres,’’ Beaudoin said in a recent interview. While no

one threatened outright violence, he said, the parish wanted to be prudent. “We got emails saying: ‘The sale is not going to happen’ and other things like that,’’ Beaudoin said. “So the Bishop stopped the sale. He said he wanted to put out the fire.’’ The saga highlights the simmering tension in Quebec as the province confronts social and demographic upheaval. Quebec’s aging population and the fiercely secular identity among the francophone majority are driving churches across the province into bankruptcy. At the same time, ongoing immigration brings waves of newcomers whose diverse beliefs and perspectives assert an increasing influence over the province’s identity. In Trois-Rivieres, the underused St-Jean-de-Brebeuf church and the burgeoning Islamic cultural centre face each other from opposite sides of a main boulevard. One is an imposing greystone structure with a grand entrance

and a towering silver-coloured steeple; the other is a small, twostorey, semi-detached building with a modest, Islamic-style wooden arch that extends from the front door. Beaudoin said the Muslim community was already using the church’s basement for activities. When mosque leaders learned the church was struggling financially, they started negotiating with the parish to buy the building. Both sides settled on a $500,000 price tag, Beaudoin said. But when the sale process moved to the public consultation stage, about 100 residents showed up on Oct. 8, according to local media. Mosque leaders in TroisRivieres did not return numerous requests for comment. But Boufeldja Benabdallah, president and co-founder of Quebec City’s main mosque, said he understood what the community was going through. “We are in a painful situation now but change always wins,’’ Benabdallah said.

They were expected to obey, without question, any direction to serve anywhere in the world for evangelization and education of their target group. Most Canadian school children are taught about Jesuit missionaries Brebeuf and Lalement, who laboured in the Huron mission on Georgian Bay in the 17th century. It was very difficult work, and, as most know, they were martyred, horribly tortured to death by the hostile Iroquois. The Jesuits were not without controversy. They ran afoul of powerful commercial interests in Portugal and Spain by opposing the enslavement of native tribes in the New World. These interests were successful in having the Jesuits thrown out of every territory controlled by the Portuguese. Later, Pope Clement XIV completely abolished the Jesuits in 1773.

Of course, the secular powers wasted no time in confiscating the Society’s many properties and institutions around the world. While the primary reason for the Jesuits’ suppression was primarily economical rather than spiritual, they were often criticized for their use of casuistry. Casuistry is a philosophical concept that basically allows someone to excuse their moral failures with clever arguments. Blaise Pascal was one of the most vocal critics of Jesuit casuistry. Jesuits were often confessors to kings and nobles, and had become quite adept at excusing moral laxity among those they were counselling (sometimes in exchange for generous donations to Jesuit causes). Some would argue a current example of this kind of casuistry is homosexual rights advocate Father James Martin, a Jesuit.

He has been campaigning vigorously for recognition of same-sex marriage by the Catholic church, and equates those who oppose the idea as being similar to “racists.” What does Pope Francis (who is the first Jesuit in history to become pope) think about this? In 2017, he named Martin to the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communications. Then, in September of this year, Pope Francis granted Martin a one-hour private meeting at the Vatican. For conservative Christians, this cozy relationship is dismaying. Loyola is likely spinning in his grave. KTW welcomes submissions to its Faith page. Columns should be between 600 and 800 words in length and include a headshot of the author, along with a short bio on the writer. Submissions can be sent via email to editor@ kamloopsthisweek.com.

Dale William Hasenwinkle 1934 - 2019 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Dale William Hasenwinkle on October 16, 2019 at the age of 85 years. Dale was born in Seattle, Washington on May 21, 1934. He was predeceased by his parents Alice and Earl Hasenwinkle , brother Glen Hasenwinkle and sister-in-law Kathy Hasenwinkle. He will always be lovingly remembered by his wife Vicki, his daughters Wendy of Kamloops and Diane (Joel) of Kelowna and son Rob of Vancouver, his grandchildren Tegan, Brock, Hollis and Owen will forever hold his memories in their hearts. Dale dearly loved his children and grandchildren. He was very proud of their accomplishments and enjoyed watching his grandchildren’s involvement in sports, track, acting in plays and in playing in piano recitals. Dale was involved with computers from the 1960s on, always stating that he was born too early as technology was changing so fast and he wanted to learn more. He and his family moved to Kamloops in the 1970s to open Hasen Auto. When he closed the business down in the late 80s, he did the computer work for B.C. Livestock, working with the auctioneer. He then moved on to work at CMHA as a job coach. In his final working years, until age 75, he had his own computer business and clients included St. Ann’s Academy and others.

Calvin Edgar Wilson It is with sadness the family of Calvin Edgar Wilson announces his passing on October 27, 2019 at the age of 91 years. Cal was born on October 7, 1928 in Beverly, Alberta. Married four times, Cal was blessed to have fathered seven wonderful children, twelve grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren. Cal was very proud to be a welder at the Vancouver shipyards and his membership in the Marine Workers’ and Boilermakers’ Industrial Union. He was also a long-time member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. The family would like to express its gratitude to the staff at the Trim Residence in Mission for the exceptional care they provided to their father in his final years.

He is survived by his loving partner Bonnie Dunn, children Tamara (John) of Pitt Meadows, Jennifer (Marc) of Chilliwack and Michael (Trina) of Calgary, grandchildren Harrison, Hazel, Ramona and Keelan, sisters Sharon (Barry), Darelene (Blair) and Faye (Jerry), and numerous other family members. Dennis will also be missed by Sherry (Dan), Missy (Steve), Cole, Kaylea and Rylee. Dennis enjoyed keeping busy with home projects, boating at Shuswap Lake, travelling to Mexico and staying active golfing and playing pickleball. He was a thoughtful, loving father and grandfather, making sure he spent time with all his children and grandchildren. He was lucky to spend lots of time with his three beloved sisters in both Mexico and Canada. Dennis was fortunate to have lifelong friends that loved and supported him including his close friend Wayne who kept him honest on the golf course. He and his partner Bonnie put in numerous summers at Shuswap Lake transforming a property to a beautiful vacation destination for their children and grandchildren. Bonnie’s children Missy and Sherry and their families frequently visited the lake filling their weekends with love. They welcomed friends and family to their places in Mexico and Shuswap. Dennis was loved by all who knew him and will be deeply missed. Memorial donations may be made in Dennis’ name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, P.O. Box 460 STN K, Toronto, ON M4P 9Z9.

We can do it all at First Memorial. Come talk to us and have a look around. You will be pleasantly surprised. Dale was a determined curious problem solver who faced challenges with such a positive attitude. He enjoyed his time spent camping, hunting, bowling, hydro plane racing, skiing, trips with his RV, being a snowbird and travelling to new places. His positive attitude and determination were the role model for everyone who knew him. His family was extremely grateful for the care of his doctors, Dr. Harold Stefanyk and Dr. Proctor. No words can express our gratitude to the staff and volunteers at the Kamloops Hospice Association for their compassionate and professional care. Our thanks also to the Palliative Care Team.

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director

Every Friday in KTW!

Q. Why don’t people want to view the deceased?

!

A. Lots of reasons. For example, a relative of mine still has nightmares about the bright orange lipstick they put on her friend in the coffin. The funeral director thought it matched her dress perfectly. Wrong! !

gardening (tomatoes were his favourite), fishing as long as there was sunshine involved and one of his all-time most favourite was his Harley Davidson motorcycle. He was a H.O.G Life member since 1993. Huge happiness was two trips to South Dakota, Sturgis Bike Rally and just about any time he got to ride. Willie will be remembered for his quick wit and often sarcastic sense of humor, being a good political sparring partner, having a cold one ready to share on the pool deck and most of all time spent with his family and friends.
