With a record number of British Columbians opting to vote by mail in the provincial election, the province won’t likely have a clear picture of the winning party until weeks after general election day this Saturday. Typically, most ballots can be counted on election night, providing near-certainty about who won before absentee ballots — which include mail-in-ballots, but also other methods of voting and are counted about two weeks after the fact — are tallied. A significant surge in mail-invoter requests this year, however, means election night won’t tell the whole picture. “The final results of the election are always reported after that final count of absentee ballots,” Elections BC communications director Andrew Watson said. “But usually, we have a much better sense of what the outcome’s going to be because we’ve counted 90 per cent of the ballots on election night.” In this election, that election night percentage will be much lower. Elections BC planned for a pandemic election with as much as 35

per cent of the electorate voting by mail, equating to 800,000 of the eligible 3.5-million ballots — or 23 per cent of all eligible ballots. The actual number is not far off as Elections BC has received nearly 725,000 vote-by-mail package requests, which equates to about 21 per cent of all registered voters. In Kamloops-North Thompson, there have been 5,744 requests, which equals about 21 per cent of the 44,809 eligible voters. In Kamloops-South Thompson, there have been 8,137 requests, which is about 18 per cent of the 46,345 eligible voters.

The provincial numbers reflect a significant increase over the 6,500 people who voted by mail in the 2017, with that election featuring about 200,000 total absentee ballots, including advance votes. Some variables remain, including individuals who decide to vote in person, despite requesting a mail-in package (which is allowed), and those who voted via other absentee-ballot methods before choosing to vote by mail. Watson said despite the surge in requests for mail-in-voting packages, the practise of counting votes will be the same in 2020 as

in previous provincial elections because the process is legislated via the Election Act to protect election integrity. He said the process to count mail-in ballots includes 13 days of preparatory work after election day, allowing Elections BC to screen ballots to prevent duplicate voting and ensure they were submitted by eligible voters. Screening involves running voter information against voter lists both manually and using technology. Counting follows the nearly two weeks of prep, which means final results won’t be known until early or midNovember. In the 2017 election, it took Elections BC two to three days to count the 200,000 absentee ballots. Using 2017 mail-in ballot counting timelines, British Columbia

wouldn’t know its government for 15 or 16 days after the Oct. 24 election, so Nov. 8 or Nov. 9 would be pegged as the dates. “With volume, those timelines could be extended because we’ve never counted this many ballots before,” Watson said. He said Elections BC understands voters will want to know the results as soon as possible, noting additional people have been hired to count mail-in ballots. “Even after the final count of absentee ballots, there is a six-dayperiod where judicial recounts can be made,” Watson said. “Then, following that period, and any judicial recounts that may occur, the writs of election are returned and the election period formally comes to an end under the act.”

Direct to Smelter – Precious Metals Recycling Roadshow returns to Kamloops Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin returns to KamloopsOctober 26th and 27th. You can bring your gold, silver, coins and Canadian paper money to the Brock Activity Centre between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day. No appointment is required. Barry Dick is a precious metals buyer and President of Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin. “Ursa Major has the unique advantage of dealing direct with a smelter” said Dick. Barry Dick “That allows us to cut out one or even two middlemen. Ursa Major purchases gold and silver from other gold buyers, pawn shops, dentists, jewellers and jewellery makers as well as the general public.” In terms of the US dollar, gold and silver prices appear low but the weak Canadian dollar means prices are strong. Ursa Major analyzes your gold, silver, coins and paper money while you watch, with the process explained to you in detail. Coins with numismatic value are graded and set aside from those with a ‘melt’ value. Silver items such as jewellery and flatware are analyzed for hallmark identification. Items thought to contain gold will also be analyzed for hallmarks, and then confirmed using precise testing that is done while you watch. Then a cash offer is made and you decide to sell or not. “If you decide to sell after hearing the quote, great, but it is also about information” says Dick. “A lot of times people just need to know a ballpark of what things are worth; we don’t pressure anyone into selling.” Dick took out his first gold claim when he turned 16 in the 1970s and has been involved with precious metals ever since. An ardent gold panner, he was a regular at the world championship gold panning competition with a personal best of 3rd place in 1984. “Nearly half of the world’s annual gold harvest comes from recycled gold. Energy costs are about $500 to mine a new ounce of gold where recycled gold is about $10 per ounce. That prevents a lot of diesel from being burned.” Gold and silver purchased at the show and later melted goes back into the market without

ZONING BYLAW REVIEW AND UPDATE

Council Calendar October 21, 2020 2:00 pm - Finance Committee Valley First Lounge, 300 Lorne Street

The City is updating its existing Zoning Bylaw No. 5-1-2001, which regulates the use of land within city limits. The purpose of the update is to ensure that the zoning regulations are more clear, userfriendly, and business-friendly than the existing bylaw and to align the zoning regulations with the City's Official Community Plan.

October 26, 2020 2:00 pm - Development and Sustainability Committee (cancelled) Valley First Lounge, 300 Lorne Street

The City is seeking input from the public on a new draft Zoning Bylaw. A few of the key proposed changes are:

November 3, 2020 1:30 pm - Regular Council Meeting 7:00 pm - Public Hearing Valley First Lounge, 300 Lorne Street

• permitting customers to enter the home for a wider range of home-based business types • updating the zoning in neighbourhoods such as Dallas, Dufferin, and Westsyde to RS1, which allows residential suites and a smaller minimum lot size for subdivision (464 m2)

November 17, 2020 10:00 am - Committee of the Whole 1:30 pm - Regular Council Meeting 7:00 pm - Public Hearing Valley First Lounge, 300 Lorne Street

• allowing larger accessory buildings and higher fence heights and requiring minimum front yard landscaping on residential lots Visit our Let’s Talk page to learn more and to take a survey. The City is also hosting two public info sessions on October 29 and November 4, 5:00–8:00 pm, at the Yacht Club, 1140 River Street.

Consider a Career With Us

KEEP GARBAGE OUT OF REACH OF BEARS The City's "Bear Smart" Bylaw is in effect between April 1 and November 30 each year. This means that garbage should be securely stored until it can be placed at the curb—no earlier than 4:00 am on collection day. Mismanaged garbage is one of the main reasons bears will enter neighbourhoods. When bears learn that garbage means food, they come back again and again. Help keep garbage out of the reach of bears and remove the temptation by doing the following:

• keep pet food containers indoors • remove bird feeders between May and November • pick ripe fruit quickly and remove unwanted fruit trees Learn more about keeping your neighbourhood safe from bears at: Kamloops.ca/BearSmart

BE AWARE, TAKE CARE As the days start getting shorter, pedestrians become more vulnerable. According to ICBC, nearly half of all crashes involving pedestrians occur between October and January when daylight hours are reduced. It’s important for both pedestrians and drivers to be aware and take care when visibility is reduced.

TIPS FOR PEDESTRIANS: • Be visible. Wear light colored or reflective clothing to help be seen. • Pay attention. Put your phone away and remove your headphones when crossing an intersection. • Don’t jaywalk. Always use crosswalks and obey pedestrian and traffic signals, especially in low visibility. • Be aware. Pay attention in intersections— watch for drivers turning left or driving through crosswalks. • Make eye contact. Never assume that a driver has seen you.

TIPS FOR MOTORISTS: • Be aware. Always leave your phone and other distractions alone while driving. • Yield. Always yield to pedestrians in crosswalks or intersections. • Expect the unexpected. Always watch for pedestrians, even mid-block.

MAKE YOUR HALLOWEEN, HALLOGREEN! This year, Halloween looks a little bit different—but we can still reduce waste. Here are a few tips for a safe and sustainable Hallowe’en: • Borrow, rent, or purchase a second-hand costume or make your own costume. • Recycle packaging. Small cardboard boxes and aluminum foil wrappers can go in your curbside recycling bin. Plastic wrappers from candies, etc. can be taken to General Grant’s Sahali or North Shore locations. • Bring your own reusable bag or decorate an old pillowcase for collecting treats. • Invest in reusable decorations to store and use for future years. Find more waste reduction tips at: Kamloops.ca/WasteReduction This year, trick or treat in small groups and keep to your neighbourhood. Wash your hands before you go out, when you get home, and before eating treats. If you are eating treats on the go, don’t forget to pack some hand sanitizer.

KST candidates debate ahead of vote What do those running think about issues important to Kamloops voters? JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

With only days before general voting day, Kamloops-South Thompson candidates took part in an all-candidates forum at the DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Kamloops. All candidates attended in person, but the event was broadcast via Zoom for the public, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s how the candidates answered some of the questions posed by Kamloops This Week, the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, the Kamloops and District Real Estate Association and members of the public:

CATH LAB

Local businessman and community fundraiser Al Patel and the ICCHA Wish Fund have been raising money for a cardiac catheterization laboratory in Kamloops for some time, to prevent Kamloops residents from travelling for cardiac care. The B.C. Liberals and B.C. NDP have promised cancer care for Kamloops, if elected. Candidates were asked if a catheterization lab should be included in Royal Inland Hospital’s new patient-care tower and how the aforementioned promises affect feasibility of a cath lab at RIH. Kamloops-South Thompson B.C. Liberal candidate Todd Stone said he supports Patel and anything to advance and improve health care in Kamloops. “I don’t think it’s either or,” Stone said, noting he is proud of his party’s announcement to improve cancer care locally and that he will continue to fight for better health care in the city, which he described as “the job of all of us.” Kamloops-South Thompson B.C. Green candidate Dan Hines said he has been following the proposal, which he said “makes sense.” However, he called it a “problem” when politicians promise projects like healthcare expansions and instead suggested longterm planning, without politics involved. “I think most voters see through that,” Hines said. Kamloops-South Thompson B.C. NDP candidate Anna Thomas said she would support a cath lab. “If that’s what the community wants, that’s what we should action,” she said.

AJAX MINE

The proposed Ajax copper and gold mine has re-emerged in the news, with a new manager hired, office space sought and a junior

come forward with a new proposal, it would require significant changes to ensure impact on the environment is minimized. “I don’t see that happening,” Stone said. “Again, we don’t want politicians making these decisions. These are decisions that need to be made by statutory decision makers and I think we all should have confidence in the environmental assessment process.” partner telling investors an environmental assessment application for the project may be coming. Candidates were asked if they support or oppose the proposal. Hines said as a candidate or MLA, he cannot decide to approve nor deny an application, but that he does not support a large open-pit mine next to a city. He noted recently reported monitoring issues with Peterson Creek and said he stands in solidarity with area First Nations. He said if the project came back with completely different qualifications and practices and different type of mine, “who knows?” However, if it came back as it was, Hines said he doesn’t think it would ever see the light of day. Thomas said the decision has already been made, but moving forward, more collaboration and dialogue with all community members is needed. Stone, meanwhile, said the previous project was subjected to rigorous environmental assessment processes at both the provincial and federal levels, with both rejecting the proposal. He said if any proponent were to

THE ARTS

Candidates were asked what they and their party would do to ensure stability for the arts in the region. Stone said the B.C. Liberals supported increased arts funding in its last platform. He said the arts provides a social connection, especially important during the pandemic. However, he noted operational changes are needed. Stone said arts organizations need to apply for the same grants every year to survive, which he called a “tremendous strain.” “We propose moving to more of a multiyear funding process that would reduce a lot of that onerous application processing time that has to be done by the arts organizations,” he said. Hines said B.C. has a lot to learn from other provinces, like Quebec, including multiyear funding. He said the arts are “so important” and often times candidates debate economic issues while missing “deep human needs” for storytelling. Thomas said long-term funding for arts is needed.

The opioid crisis, parks, forestry and the Ajax mine were among topics discussed by Kamloops-North Thompson candidates during Monday’s allcandidates forum. The five candidates vying to be the next MLA squared off inside a Double Tree by Hilton conference room, with the public tuning in online due to pandemic protocols. Here are some of the highlights from issues raised:

OPIOID CRISIS

Asked what government should do to address the opioid crisis that is currently not being done, B.C. Liberal Peter Milobar noted his party has committed to building a foundry centre to address youth mental health and addiction to try to prevent some of the harm before it becomes deeply rooted. B,.C. Green Thomas Martin called for decriminalization of drugs, noting it can be done at the provincial level by redirecting police resources. B.C. New Democrat Sadie Hunter also called for decriminalization, but said there needs to be an effective way to reach people who use alone in their homes, where the majority of overdose deaths occur.

FORESTRY

Asked for their plan to address forestry in the riding, Martin said the Greens will enact local control over lumber, resource revenue sharing with municipalities and promoting small and medium-sized businesses.

“If you live in Clearwater, you should have a say in what happens in the forests around your community,” Martin said. Hunter said the NDP has invested $13 million to improve forest stewardship and planted more than 300-million trees last year. “There’s a lot of work that still needs to be done, but we’re committed to doing it,” Hunter said. Russell said the logging of old growth forests needs to stop and government needs to examine how to get more resources with less harm to the environment. B.C. Conservative candidate Dennis Giesbrecht said B.C needs to reform how it calculates stumpage rates, noting it should be done monthly rather than once a year, which will allow for flexibility in adapting to changing market conditions. Milobar said the Liberal plan also calls for stumpage reform, but did not get into specifics.

AJAX MINE

Asked about the possible reapplication of the Ajax mine project, none of the candidates expressed much hope for the proposal. Giesbrecht said Ajax should have the right to apply, adding the decision should be in the hands of the regulatory agencies, not politicians. Hunter noted the project has already been

denied and cannot see it being able to change enough to move forward. Martin said it’s difficult to judge a project before seeing the application, but if it were a resubmission of the former one, he wouldn’t support it. “I’d want to see what’s changed,” he said, adding he would also want First Nations and City of Kamloops involved in the process. Milobar said any MLA or minister would need to rely on the decision form the environmental assessment office if such an application came forward. “But frankly, the hurdles that would be faced after being rejected once already would be massive,” he said.

SCHOOLS

How would candidates address overcrowded schools and ensure School District 73 gets the capital funding it requires? Giesbrecht said he would like to see the school system utilize modular buildings to fit the demand. “You can, like Lego, add and remove as demographics shift,” he said, adding he’d also like to see more investment in online education. Milobar said the Liberals have funding in their plan for the burned-down Parkcrest elementary and other capital projects needed in Kamloops.

DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU VOTE

W

e are down to the final few days of the strangest election campaign in memory. Have you learned enough to form a solid opinion as to which candidate will get your vote? Was your decision made before the election was called? Did anything occur during the campaign to persuade you to change your mind? Bereft of packed all-candidates debates, with very few human interactions — and definitely no baby-kissing — this campaign was conducted amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which meant physical distancing was in and large gatherings were out. As a result, traditional and social media were methods used by outlets like KTW and by candidates to get information out to the masses. In times like these, the internet is invaluable. Can you imagine a campaign like this, amid a pandemic, in the pre-internet age? We even managed to stage two all-candidates forums, back to back on Monday night, with KTW operations manager Tim Shoults moderating. Unlike the hapless Mike Wallace stateside, Shoults was blessed with eight candidates who exemplified professionalism. If nothing else, those watching the KamloopsNorth Thompson and Kamloops-South Thompson debates saw intelligent men and women answering questions and putting forward their vision without attacking and belittling their opponents. All eight even managed to answer our favourite query with thoughtful honesty: For whom would they vote if they could not vote for themselves? We hope you managed to watch that debate or others held online during this campaign. And we hope you managed to read KTW, check kamloops thisweek.com and visit other local news sites to devour as much information as possible so you can vote with knowledge. Please log on to kamloopsthisweek.com on election night (Oct. 24) as we cover the final stages of this bewildering campaign.

The winners will be ...

I

have a 100 per cent, take it to the bank, sure-fire cannot lose election night prediction for you — KamloopsNorth Thompson Green candidate Thomas Martin will be incommunicado on the big day. How do I know this? Easy — we received a press release from campaign manager Matt Greenwood, reminding us that Martin is getting married on election day (Oct. 24) and, as such, he will be unavailable for comment from Friday night through to Sunday morning. I would hope so. And, in the spirit of all things election-related, advance congrats to the soon-to-be newlyweds. While Martin gets married, the question remains — will voters decide to divorce candidates in their ridings? And with whom will love be lost and found — or, as in the unfortunate case of Laurie Throness down in Chilliwack, annulled? Election day is this Saturday and, while the 700,000-plus mail-in vote packages requested means the final results will not be known for about two weeks later, we will have a pretty good idea of which way the political landscape is tilting come Oct. 24. Proffering political predictions can be a fool’s game, as many of us remember from the shocking 2013 provincial election, which saw the B.C. NDP snatch defeat from the jaws of certain victory. But I shall risk being a fool (those who know me might quip the risk is not that great) and offer up what will happen once the final ballots are counted.

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS Locally, the two Kamloops ridings will return the incumbent B.C. Liberal MLAs to Victoria. Yes, Todd Stone will win in Kamloops-South Thompson and Peter Milobar will claim a harderfought victory in Kamloops-North Thompson. The triumphs will be aided by the power of incumbency in a very strange election campaign in which the most important factor — meeting people — was severely impacted. But Stone’s re-election will snap a remarkable 117-year streak in the riding of voters always electing a government MLA. Through 32 provincial elections — from Conservative Frederick John Fulton in 1903 to Stone in 2017 — voters in Kamloops-South Thompson (formerly Kamloops) have never elected an opposition member of the legislature. That all changes when the votes in this election are finalized, sometime next month. Provincially, we will welcome a majority NDP government, with John Horgan and his team

riding a well-received pandemic response to the polls, where voters will decide to stick with what they know, rather than risk the unknown during a once-in-a lifetime health and economic crisis. It will be exactly what happened in 2013, when polls belied what voters were thinking — that the economy and their households were better off in the hands of what they knew, rather than risk handing them to the unknown. It also helps the New Democrats that Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson simply does not have it. A lack of charisma, incessant complaining about the NDP and ideas that do not resonate with voters will lead to a leadership race in the new year. Might Stone yet lead the Good Ship Liberal? There are 87 seats up for grabs in this first-past-the-post election. Here is how they will shake out once final tabulations are complete: B.C. NDP: 52 B.C. Liberal: 32 B.C. Green: 3 I may be wrong, and I often am, but I’d wager I am closer to being right. CORRECTION: In last week’s View From City Hall column, penned by Coun. Bill Sarai, an editing error led to the name of a proposed court to be mislabelled. The court to which Sarai referred is called the Kamloops Community Justice Court. editor@kamloopsthiseeek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

REPORT WAS PROFESSIONAL HEAD OF RCMP HAS EVERY RIGHT TO SPEAK UP Editor: Re: the Oct. 8 letter from Kamloops lawyer Joe Killoran (‘Head of Kamloops RCMP ‘baselessly attacking Crown counsel and judges’) in which he criticizes Kamloops RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky for comments he made about the judicial system. Don’t attack our judiciary? I find it shameful that anyone, let alone a lawyer, would tell another Canadian not to speak out on a subject, especially one they probably know more about from first-hand experience. Also, why would I look to the U.S. when I believe Canada’s problem is big enough? Let’s not deflect to somewhere else, but own up that we have a huge problem of our own. As for Lecky saying what he said “on the public’s dime,” I hope he said it because he is on the public dime. I would hope, as a lawyer, Killoran would defend all Canadians’ right to voice their opinions. With regards to Killoran’s opinion that the RCMP is on the wrong side, I think he demonstrates his lack of knowledge about what the national police force does. Parliament makes the laws and the police attempt to enforce them. If anyone is being robbed, I recommend they call the police first, not a lawyer. I hope Lecky does run for office some day because Canada needs politicians who are not afraid to speak out for true Canadian values. Lorne Tippe Kamloops

Editor: The Kamloops Area Preservation Association wishes to respond to Richard Lodmell’s criticisms in his letter of Oct. 14 (‘More mining hysteria in Kamloops’) regarding the Ajax mine/Peterson Creek contamination study that was done on behalf of KAPA by Dr. Kevin Morin. Lodmell claims that “it is inconceivable that a professional geoscientist would ever produce a technical report for … $4,000.” Lodmell is seemingly unaware that Morin prepared his report built on earlier reviews he had done for both KAPA and the Stk’emlúpsemc te Secwépemc Nation as part of the Ajax Environmental Assessment.

His reports are part of the Ajax environmental assessment documents. Secondly, Morin did not cherry-pick data, as Lodmell claims. Morin reviewed all the available information on the issue in the permit reports and the Ajax environmental assessment reports. It was by scrutinizing all data that Morin found that the 2019 Ajax mine permit report filed with the provincial government left out some of the peak contaminant levels that had been submitted in past reports. This is not cherry-picking, or nitpicking, but thorough, competent work. Morin has graduate degrees in hydrogeology and geology and more than 40 years of experience in the fields of water

contamination, contaminant migration, hydrogeology, geochemistry, environmental impact assessment and computer modelling related to mining and industrial activity. His assistance in developing British Columbia’s highly respected metal leaching and acid rock drainage guidelines is acknowledged by the B.C. government. If Lodmell has grounds for questioning the professional conduct of Morin, he should file a complaint with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia.

OLDER VOTERS — MAKE YOUNG VOTES MATTER Editor: I’m a senior. It’s not my planet anymore. I have way less time to live with the consequences of my vote than do my children. We support our children in so many ways. Voting is another. Ask your children how they are voting, and why, so you know they’ve done their research. Then vote with them (or the majority of them). You will increase the impact of their vote and thus help them design their planet. It’s a complete reversal of the power dynamic. If you’re a younger voter, be brave and tell your elders how you want them to support you. It’s long past time younger voters mattered more. Hey, older voters, let’s do this. Tom Rankin Kamloops

Kamloops residents line up in Sahali Mall on Oct. 16 to vote in an advance poll. Wednesday, Oct. 21, is the final day for advance voting. General election day is Saturday, Oct. 24.

Tk’emlups disavows Trans Mountain protesters CHIEF ROSANNE CASIMIR: ‘NO ONE ELSE HAS THE RIGHT TO SPEAK ON OUR BEHALF’ MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Tk’emlups te Secwépemc (TteS) First Nation is denouncing protests being conducted against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, which saw the RCMP make nine arrests in Kamloops on two separate days last week. On Oct. 15, five people from the We, the Secwépemc Unity Camp to Stop the Trans Mountain Pipeline were arrested for allegedly violating a court injunction prohibiting obstructing Trans Mountain worksites. Protesters opposed to the Crown corporation’s twinning of the oil pipeline underway in Kamloops were arrested after demonstrations outside a worksite off Mission Flats Road. A statement from Tk’emlups Chief Rosanne Casimir was issued on Oct. 16, a day before four more arrests were made at a Trans Mountain worksite near the airport. In the statement, Casimir said Tk’emlups band elders and membership were not part of the pro-

test, nor do they endorse it. “I am the elected Kukpi7 (chief) under our own custom election code and the ex officio for all TteS portfolios,” Casimir said. “The area Trans Mountain is working in is our area of responsibility. No one else has the right to speak on our behalf.” The protesters have said they represent the will of the Secwépemc people and contend First Nations band councils that do support the pipeline project have been bought off to do so. One of the arrested protesters is said to be a hereditary chief of the Secwépemc, according to the protesters. The Tk’emlups te Secwépemc First Nation has a $3-million mutual benefits agreement with Trans Mountain. The site where the protests are occurring is where Trans Mountain workers are in the process of drilling under the Thompson River and dragging the pipeline below the riverbed, between Kamloops Airport and the Mission Flats area. Protesters have set up what

they say is a permanent encampment off Mission Flats Road near the worksite to oppose the pipeline. They cite safety concerns for the river and salmon populations within it. They also argued the pipeline expansion work is being done on unceded Secwépemc territory. Casimir stated that the Tk’emlups band has worked cooperatively with Trans Mountain, secured employment for its members on the project, participated in the decision-making matters and is proud to have made an impact and changes to the environmental process. All of those arrested have been released from custody and have January court dates. “A reminder that demonstrators have the right to peaceful, lawful and safe protest and companies have a lawful right to complete their mandated work,” B.C. RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said. “The RCMP is working hard to protect both of these rights and ensure all parties and public are kept safe.”

B.C. is in the midst of second wave of COVID-19 DR. BONNIE HENRY SAID IT CAN BE CONTROLLED MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said the province can be considered to be in the midst of a second wave in the pandemic as the weekend brought news of 499 new cases of COVID-19. As of Monday, the death toll in B.C. stood at 253. Since the pandemic began, there have been more than 11,600 cases, of which almost 10,000 people have recovered. There are in excess of 1,600 active cases of COVID-19 across B.C., with 67 people in hospital, including 19 in critical care. Across B.C., there have been more than 6,000 cases of COVID-19 in Fraser Health since the pandemic began, more than 4,000 in Vancouver Coastal Health, more than 600 in Interior Health, more than 300 in Northern Health and more than 200 in Island Health. Another 88 cases involve people who live outside the country. In September, there were 22 cases of COVID-19 recorded in the Kamloops area specifically, according to the BC Centre for Disease Control — up from seven new cases in the area recorded in August. Year to date, there have been 82 cases of COVID-19 recorded in Kamloops. Over the weekend, there were four new COVID-19 outbreaks in health-care facilities, bringing the total number of current outbreaks to 19 — 17 in longterm care homes and two in hospital acute-care wards. None are located in Interior Health. Two outbreaks are now considered over. In total, there have been more than 900 cases of COVID-19 in care homes to date — in excess of 500 among residents and almost 400 involving staff.

There was one new community outbreak recorded in Fraser Health, at J&L Beef Ltd. Henry said B.C. is in the midst of its second wave of COVID-19, but added it can be controlled, noting there has not been exponential growth. “This virus has not gone away and it has shown us that it is quite able to hide and spread in communities around the province,” she said. Asked what more can be done to combat COVID-19 in B.C., which is seeing record daily case counts, Henry said people must remain vigilant with pandemic protocols and get tested when need be. She added that businesses must stick to their COVID-19 safety plans. Addressing social media concerns over a lack of clarity reporting on cases in schools, Henry said all exposure events are being reported and all people who may have been in contact with a case are being notified. “We know that sometimes there are exposures in schools, but we have not seen widespread outbreaks and that tells us that things are working in our schools,” she said. Henry said B.C.’s provincial health orders have been focused on reducing social interactions that have the potential to spread COVID-19 to large groups of people, which is why nightclubs and banquet halls were shut down, restaurants and pubs were given new, earlier last call orders and gathering limits remain capped at 50 people. She said with those measures in place, there has not been widespread transmission, which is why other businesses have not had to be restricted further. Henry said B.C. is seeing a variety of ways COVID-19 is spread, but noted most of the current cases have come via small transmission chains within groups, which have been limited due to the 50-person limit on gatherings.

Serial masturbator facing more charges TIM PETRUK

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A serial masturbator accused of keeping unbroken eye contact with a teenaged high school student while touching himself in a Kamloops restaurant will remain behind bars, a judge has ruled. Kenneth Wayne Wickstrom, 65, is slated to stand trial later this year on three separate sets of charges alleging he either masturbated or exposed himself to women at different occasions between October 2019 and April 2020. On Oct. 24, 2019, Wickstrom was arrested after a woman called police to report a man in a high-visibility jacket and no pants masturbating near a pedestrian bridge over Peterson Creek. Crown prosecutor Tim Livingston said police arrived and arrested Wickstrom, who had a blanket wrapped around his legs. On Jan. 9, 2020, court heard, two high school classmates were studying and eating at a Columbia Street restaurant when a

man — alleged to be Wickstrom — sat near them and began to masturbate. “He was not breaking eye contact with her [one of the teens],” Livingston said, noting Wickstrom then offered to pay for the girls’ meals. He was arrested the following day. On April 20, 2020, Wickstrom was again arrested after a woman walking her dog in the Ralph Bell schoolyard in Valleyview called police and told them a man in the field wearing shorts lay down, lifted his leg and asked if she could “see it,” Livingston said. Wickstrom has been in custody since April 20 and sought bail this week in B.C. Supreme Court. In a decision on Wednesday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan said Wickstrom, who has many convictions for breaching court orders, had to be detained to prevent him from committing new crimes. “There is a substantial likelihood that Mr. Wickstrom, if he were released from custody, would commit another

offence,” she said. Wickstrom has a lengthy criminal

record, including 14 convictions for committing an indecent

act in a public place. He is scheduled to stand trial on Nov. 10

While no suspects have been arrested in connection to the Oct. 16 shooting at the Hospitality Inn in Lower Sahali that sent one person to hospital with minor injuries, other charges have been laid as a result of the investigation, Police say a vehicle at the scene of the incident was later found abandoned on a rural property near Chase. This led to the execution of a search warrant of the property. Steven Stuart Gardner was arrested on an unrelated investigation relating to events that occurred on or around Sept. 13. Gardner has been charged with possession of a firearm contrary to an order and possession of a firearm without a licence.

So far in 2020, B.C. is recording an average of 4.2 illicit drug deaths per day, according to the coroners service. Seventy per cent of those who have died are between 30 and 59 years of age and the overwhelming majority — 80 per cent — have been men. Vancouver, Surrey and Victoria account for the most overdose deaths so far in 2020. Fentanyl continues to be the drug most associated with the deaths.

Safety concerns raised near Columbia’s motel row Oct. 16 shooting injured one person, prompted letter from residents to city, school district to address concerns JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Amidst gunfire on West Columbia Street last Friday morning, students of nearby Beattie elementary got ready for school. A press release was sent to media at 7:45 a.m., asking the public to avoid the area. However, parents proceeded to drop their kids off at school. One parent said it wasn’t until just before 9 a.m., when she was notified classrooms were on “hold and secure.” The question she has is why weren’t parents told before they drove their kids to school near a police situation involving a shooter? “We all had to drive through it in order to get to the school,” Beattie parent Tara Bondar told KTW, noting communication to parents did not occur fast enough. “The school district did not send out a message saying, ‘Hey, this is happening. If you bring your kids to school, they will be in a hold and secure.’ There was no communication about how to proceed.” Frustration is mounting

City looks at zoning issues near strip of West Columbia Street motels online at kamloopsthisweek.com amongst Beattie parents because it’s not the first time a police incident has occurred near the school and it’s not the first time gaps in communication have occurred. In the spring, police responded to an armed robbery at the Esso gas station across from Beattie at the end of the school day. The bell rang and kids heading home walked into an active police situation. “It’s my understanding that the police maybe forgot to communicate that there was a police incident happening in close proximity to the school,” Bondar said, noting Mounties were chasing the suspect in the neighbourhood. “That was very alarming because when I went to the school to pick my children up, there was police everywhere.” School District 73 superintendent Terry Sullivan said as soon as the school district was given directive by Kamloops RCMP last Friday, it acted. Sullivan said the school district has since learned

there was never any danger to schools — also involving Sahali secondary and the private St. Ann’s Academy — and the hold and secure was precautionary. Sullivan could not say what time the school district received directive from police. “When I looked, the actual call went out to parents at 8:56 a.m.” he said. “As soon as we were informed by the RCMP — we have a liaison officer with the RCMP — and as soon as we were informed by that liaison officer, we were directed to tell our schools in that area to hold and secure. We did. As soon as we heard the directive from them, we acted on it.” Kamloops RCMP Sgt. Darren Michels said police were dealing with the incident at 7:30 a.m. The school district does not receive media releases. Michels said the watch commander or school liaison, if on shift, would let the schools know. Asked when that happened on Friday, Michels said

HOLMES IS WHERE THE

Ten days from today is Halloween. This event, like every other one since Friday March 13, will look very different. There are guidelines set out on the BCCDC website for COVID safety protocol on ideas on how to keep Halloween safe and fun for kids. This year Oct 31 falls on a Saturday night, so for the 19+ crowd, it would have been a busy fun night of costume parties at bars and clubs with lots of dancing, prizes, and great live music. This year there no doubt would have been some hilarious costumes to have fun with. I am guessing Joe Exotic would be one of the top 10 choices, also Donald Trump is a no brainer (literally), or how funny would it be to have a Mike Pence ( white wig with a big black fly in the centre), with Joe Biden holding a fly swatter. The most popular costume would probably be a big round, grey, scary looking circle with red prickly points sticking out which of course is the image for COVID 19. I am not sure what would be scarier on my doorstep on Halloween. COVID or Trump. This Halloween there is one opportunity we all have to take advantage of a costume that we never have

before. We can be creative with our Covid masks. I am sure you have already noticed many custom masks promoting sports teams, a cause, or your own business. Many months ago, I jumped on the bandwagon and had masks made with my business logo as well. It’s a great way to get some free advertising. There are also some very pretty fashionable masks that some people have to match different outfits. Let’s face it, masks are here to stay until there is a worldwide vaccination that has been distributed to all countries. If you have been holding out on the mask wearing, it’s a good time to surrender as many places are now mandating face coverings.

I have been hearing from clients lately, that their dealbreakers include someone who feels wearing a mask is having their rights taken away. They hope to meet someone who wears a mask because they know it’s the right thing to do. Think of it like wearing a seat belt. It’s nice to have the security just in case. We don’t get in our car planning on getting in an accident, but we know wearing a seat belt will be an added layer of protection. The masks I am more concerned with are the filters that people have on their devices that can alter their looks. It is mostly women who are using these filters to narrow their faces, smooth out their skin, lengthen their eyelashes, raise their cheekbones, that by the time a potential match sees this photo they won’t recognize the woman when they meet in person. I think it’s so sad that so many women feel under pressure to change their appearance. I need these women to know that men don’t like the filtered look. They don’t trust a person who can’t send pictures of their true selves. Please stop using filters. The best photos are the ones with lifestyle pictures showing who you are and

The school district did not send out a “message saying, ‘Hey, this is happening. If you bring your kids to school, they will be in a hold and secure.’ There was no communication about how to proceed.

he did not know, but added police try to notify schools as soon as possible. He described Friday’s incident as an “unfolding” situation. “I can’t comment on necessarily what time that occurred,” he said. Bondar said a committee was struck after the springtime gas station robbery to discuss issues at the school, also involving drug paraphernalia and feces found on school property, homeless individuals on school property and more. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, put the issue on the backburner until about three weeks ago, when someone entered the school and stole a purse, phone and keys out of a classroom during school hours, with kids in

the building. Beattie parents recently sent a letter to the city and School District 73, requesting a meeting to address safety issues. In the letter, they ask to meet with the city, MLAs, MP, RCMP and Beattie parent advisory committee to create solutions to improve safety for Lower Sahali and the West End. Sullivan said he is “concerned” about increased criminality in the area, which he said is an escalating problem. He said during his long tenure with the school district, incidents occurred in the area around Beattie elementary, but “not like we’re seeing now.” He said the use of hotels and motels in the area for housing has changed over time, with more desperate individuals in the area.

your personality. Take some photos hiking, paddle boarding, skiing, and if you would like to include a more formal shot, for sure send along one from a party where you were dressed up with hair and makeup done. The only filters you should be using are the ones in your furnace. By all means you can include a photo with your COVID mask as well. After all these face coverings will no doubt be a souvenir one day. Maybe two years from now we will be able to put them in a time capsule and much like we look back at the photos of the Spanish flu epidemic where ladies were wearing gowns with masks, we will be the ones in those historical photos when 50 and 100 years from now people look back on 2020-21 and see what we looked like. Maybe your grandchildren will talk about how their grandparents fell in love during this pandemic and they will have your face masks as a souvenir of your love story.

Sullivan, who has agreed to meet with those with concerns, said he understands concern from parents, noting the school district recently installed additional security at the school. Hotels and motels in the West Columbia Street area are being used for long-term accommodations. Some are clearly established, with potted plants on balconies. Others look rough. Some are funded by BC Housing. Ask Wellness Society executive director Bob Hughes said the agency operates about 50 of 400 motel units in the West Columbia Street area. However, he wishes to dispel rumour — the agency does not operate or have history with the Hospitality Inn, where last week’s shooting took place. A couple of years ago, ASK Wellness had a couple units at the Star Lodge, but it is no longer involved with that motel, he said.

For two years, the agency has been leasing space at the Columbia Motor Inn and it also leased space in the Panorama Inn and Suites over the winter and due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hughes said the two properties run by ASK are not causing issues in the area and pointed to two other issues. One is the viewpoint, which is left open through the night and is not patrolled. The second is motels in the area that once relied on long-term stays from international students at Thompson Rivers University struggling to fill rooms. “Because of COVID, that market has dried up,” Hughes said. They need revenues. They’re being impacted. Units are being rented. But we have for the past three months been highlighting to the RCMP and City of Kamloops our concerns with the activities around the south Sahali motel area, around Columbia.”

Sadie Hunter: Kamloops-North Thompson NDP NEED TO KNOW

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Sadie Hunter wants to be a voice at the table. Looking at the polls, the B.C. NDP appears poised to win the election. As the NDP candidate in Kamloops-North Thompson, Hunter feels she can effectively advocate for the area as a part of government. “That can’t be done very effectively by somebody in opposition and I think it’s really important to have that representation,” Hunter said. It’s the same reason for which the city councillor was recently elected to the position of director at large at the Union of B.C. Municipalities. “My passion is for Kamloops and this region,” Hunter said.

She said she feels the NDP has done a good job over the past three years, noting polls reflect the public’s satisfaction. “They’ve made changes to affordable housing, they’ve provided affordable day care, they’re providing opportunities that simply didn’t exist before,” Hunter said.

She said it’s time for an MLA from Kamloops that is aligned with government. Hunter said her lived experience and academic background in science and policy gives her the framework and knowledge to advocate for Kamloops’ needs. Asked what the No. 1 non-

COVID-19 related issue is for Kamloops-North Thompson, Hunter said it’s important people have access to the services they need — whether that be health care, affordable housing or mental-health services. As a city councillor, Hunter has taken a leave of absence during the election campaign.

Hunter moved to Kamloops from Chetwynd in 2001 to attend what was then the University College of the Cariboo. The then-single mother moved to the Tournament Capital for its affordability and obtained degrees in journalism and science in 2007 before completing a master of science in environmental science. Since then, she has worked for not-for profits in science education and at Thompson Rivers University as a fundraiser for the faculty of science and nursing. Hunter was elected to city council in 2018 and has operated her own communications business for the past two years. On council, Hunter sits on the development and sustainability committee and the community relations committee and has been a liaison with the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce.

Anna Thomas: Kamloops-South Thompson NDP NEED TO KNOW

JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Anna Thomas is running for the B.C. NDP in Kamloops-South Thompson because, she said, it is time for change in the riding. The 45-year-old North Kamloops resident and member of the Lytton and Peguis First Nations said she is the first Indigenous woman to run in the riding. “This is huge,” she said, noting the NDP is inclusive. “I have a deep passion for advocating for those that aren’t able to. Asked why she and her party are the best choice, Thomas said that not only is the party inclusive, but she also truly believes in the New Democrats, enough to seek the riding’s seat.

plished plenty in three-and-ahalf years and is committed to working “with the people for the people.” “Which is absolutely super important to me,” she said. “Being Indigenous and having

past government basically telling, not negotiating, I think it’s key about the collaboration and the relationship to move forward together. Not only Indigenous people, but for all people in B.C.” The NDP has been criticized,

however, for calling a snap election, with critics pointing to a power grab. In addition, delays in pandemic aid have been reported, resulting from the government in caretaker mode during the elec-

tion campaign. Thomas, however, argued that no time is a good time for an election during a health crisis and said that the pandemic won’t be gone by next year, when the election was initially planned. “It’s not going away,” she said. “[B.C. NDP Leader] John Horgan has said we need to secure a government through the pandemic. I honestly feel that no time would have been perfect.” Asked for the No. 1 non-pandemic related issue facing her riding, Thomas cited the opioid crisis, homelessness and issues impacting youth. Thomas said her party is working hard, but added she would like to see improved communication between municipalities and the federal government.

Brandon Russell: KamloopsNorth Thompson Independent MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Brandon Russell sees himself in a unique position to lobby for the people of Kamloops-North Thompson. The 19-year-old is the youngest candidate running locally in the Oct. 24 provincial election and he’s doing so as an independent candidate. “I think that, as an independent, we can stand differently on issues that face Kamloops, rather than party issues and party whips in Victoria,” Russell said. He said being able to branch out across the political spectrum on policy will help the riding the most. Russell said he

decided to run to make a positive impact on politics and bring a greater representation to youth and the environment in government. Russell cited ecomomic recovery as the primary issue facing Kamloops. “Focusing on bringing back jobs and bringing back skilled workers and bringing back people into Kamloops to carry out these jobs, and having more high-paying jobs in our community,” he said. Russell said there needs to be more education, noting training will yield better jobs. The Kamloops resident graduated from Valleyview secondary in 2019 and took a year off to figure out what he wanted to

do, leading him to a decision to seek out politics. He said he has always had an interest in politics and climate activism, having attended his first climate protest at eight years of age. He has also been a regular at model United Nations conferences during the past six years. “Politics has always been something I’m interested in,” Russell said, noting participating in virtual Model UN conferences and connecting with people around the world sparked his interest in wanting to run in this election. Russell has also volunteered his time raising money for societies such as the Chris Rose Therapy

Centre for Autism. As an independent, Russell said addressing climate change and enhancing education are two of the main issues he intends to fight for if sent to Victoria. This includes seeking increased funding for schools during the COVID-19 pandemic and, afterwards, for special education programs. He also wants to end construction of BC Hydro’s Site C Dam project and extract a dedication from government to renewable and sustainable energy.

Peter Milobar, B.C. Liberal Candidate Todd Stone, B.C. Liberal Candidate Running For Kamloops North-Thompson MLA Facts About Me • Raised in Kamloops, graduated from Kamloops Senior Secondary.

• Married to Lianne for 27 years, and proud Dad to three “kids” ages 26, 24 and 22. • Before being elected to the BC Legislature, City Councillor then Mayor. • 5 year TNRD Chair • Hospital Board Chair during time of securing $500M in RIH improvements. • Among boards I have served on, BC Transit, Fraser Basin Council and PrimeCorp. • Elected MLA for Kamloops-North Thompson in 2017. • Served as the Official Opposition Critic for Environment and Climate Change 2017 to present.

I was raised in Kamloops working in and eventually owing our small family business. I raised our three kids here with my wife Lianne and during this time was also a City Councillor, Mayor and MLA. Over my career serving the people of Kamloops, the Kamloops – North Thompson and the users of our regional hospital we have accomplished a lot. $300 million in Trans-Canada Highway four-laning; university status, a huge increase in programs, and hundreds of millions for new buildings at TRU; significant investments at Royal Inland Hospital, including $500 million for the Clinical Services Building & Patient Care Tower and the expansion of Kamloops airport. We need action to highlight the need for more mental health, addiction and recovery supports for the homeless and vulnerable populations, as well as additional supports needed for small businesses negatively impacted. We have more work to do to ensure Kamloops and region continues to get the services it needs. That’s why I’m fighting for enhanced cancer treatment in Kamloops, not hours away in Kelowna or Vancouver. Expanding the Car 40 program to 24/7 service because we know mental health needs aren’t confined to bankers hours. In addition, a Foundry Centre for youth in our community. I’m committed to bringing much needed safety improvements on the highway 5N corridor, fighting for needed investments in child care and long term care, and doing everything possible to support small businesses during the bumpy road ahead. These are difficult times especially our small businesses, especially those in the tourism and services sectors, have been hit hard by this pandemic. When we speak with small business owners, it is clear that something needs to be done to help jumpstart the economy and get local businesses back on their feet. That’s why we’re fighting for PST elimination. With total elimination for one year and reduction to 3% in the following year, we can help small business owners pull themselves up and inject life back into our economy. Right now, we need experienced voices representing our riding. I have the track record that shows I do just that and will continue to work hard for you in the Kamloops – North Thompson. I’m asking for your continued support to do so when you go to cast your vote.

I was raised in Kamloops - this is my home. It’s also where Chantelle and I decided to start a family and a business over 30 years ago. We’ve accomplished a lot in 7+ years working together. Significant investments at Royal Inland Hospital, including $500 million for the Clinical Services Building & Patient Care Tower; $300 million in Trans-Canada Highway four-laning; university status, a huge increase in programs, and hundreds of millions for new buildings at TRU; and expansion of Kamloops airport. I was also proud of my work to combat youth vaping, urge action to address skyrocketing strata insurance costs, and highlight the need for more mental health, addiction and recovery supports for the homeless and vulnerable populations, as well as additional supports needed for small businesses negatively impacted. There is much more work to do to ensure Kamloops and region continues to get the services it needs. That’s why I’m advocating for enhanced cancer treatment in Kamloops, an extension of the Car 40 program to 24/7 service, and a Foundry Centre for youth in our community. It’s why I’m committed to getting four-laning of the Trans-Canada Highway back on track, fighting for needed investments in child care and long term care, and doing everything possible to support small businesses during the bumpy road ahead. These are difficult times for many, so bold action is required to keep people safe AND to give people and small businesses the best shot possible to get through the coming months financially. More than ever, we need the strongest voice possible at the table – and I believe I am that voice in Kamloops – South Thompson. I pledge to continue working hard for you, and I’m asking for your continued support to do so. Authorized by David Goldsmith, Financial Agent for the BC Liberal Party | 1-800-567-2257

It’s easy to explain that I want to see real action on climate change, that my industry (forestry) needs reform, or that we need politicians who put their communities ahead of their parties. But that doesn’t explain why I am running. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m running because I know that we can do better. We can do better on fighting climate change, on improving health care, on stopping overdose deaths, and on helping small businesses. Like many people I grew tired of only having two parties to choose between and always being disappointed by both. I’m running because I want to give BC a better choice.

OVER 46 YEARS EXPERIENCE SERVING THE INTERIOR

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District is looking into acquiring a community forest for economic development in the region. The regional district board has approved allocation of $20,000 from the TNRD’s economic development budget to fund a feasibility study on acquisition of a community forest. TNRD CAO Scott Hildebrand said the regional district wants to explore the opportunity, noting Logan Lake has a community forest that has worked well for the community about 40 minutes southwest of Kamloops. Community forest agreements, according to the province, are an areabased forest licence managed by a local government, community groups, First Nation or a combination of local governments for benefit of the community. “It’s about dedicating a section of forest that we would actually operate and harvest and then, as part of that, we’re the protector, the owner of that and then we would reap the benefits from that harvest,” Hildebrand said. Community forest agreements are for a term of between 25 years and 99 years

The TNRD is warning prospective buyers of buildingcode infractions in Sarangati Village in Venables Valley. Details are online at kamloopsthisweek.com and are replaceable every 10 years. Hildebrand said that although the TNRD does not currently have a community forest, other regional districts have such agreements. Member municipalities within the regional district have individual agreements. The regional district board also agreed this past in the summer to spend $35,000 on a study to explore feasibility of a motion picture studio, with the area bypassed by productions due to a lack of studio space. NORTH THOMPSON PLANNING As the regional district explores new economic drivers, it is also undertaking long-range planning for the North Thompson. The regional district continues con-

sultation on the North Thompson Official Community Plan, a macroregional approach to land use that considers changes and challenges in three electoral areas (Wells Gray Country, Thompson-Headwaters and Lower North Thompson), including communities like Blue River, Avola, Clearwater, Barriere, Little Fort and Vavenby. According to a report that went to the board of directors last week, many changes have occurred since the last time a review of planning took place more than 25 years ago, including rural population decline, a diminished forestry and mining sector and growth of an outdoor recreation economy. Hildebrand noted Trans Mountain pipeline activity in the area has resulted in additional economic activity in the area. The board has approved second reading of the North Thompson OCP. A public hearing will be held at the Blackpool Hall at a yet to be determined date before it returns to the board for third and final readings. For more information, go online to the Thompson-Nicola Regional District’s website at tnrd.ca and search under the “planning development” section.

What Are Your Investing Blind Spots? Who hasn't made a poor decision in life? Perhaps you ate ice cream instead of dieting, or binged on Netflix when you should have been doing your taxes (personally guilty). Regarding your finances, maybe you made an impulse purchase or blamed others for bad choices. Don't be discouraged, you are human. It happens despite our best intentions, knowledge level or experience. Understanding why and how to avoid these behaviors can be explained through behavioral finance: the study of how people make decisions in relation to money. By realizing we have blind spots, we may either take action ourselves or engage the help of others to keep us in check. Either way, the goal is the same: To make better financial decisions. At TD Wealth, we use a 'Behavioural Finance Discovery Tool' that helps investors identify, learn more about themselves and assist them to avoid their unique blind spots.

1) Sensitivity to Noise We live in the technology age where information is over-abundant. Given the COVID-19 global pandemic, the noise level has been extreme and can be flat out disheartening. The problem with information is filtering out noise. There always is "breaking news" or a pundit telling everyone to get out as the next crash is coming. They are not accountable for when they get it wrong… which often is the case. Your wealth can suffer dramatically if you make a knee-jerk reaction. Remembering your investment goals and objectives should guide you, not the most recent headline. 2) Resistance to taking losses or profits Investors often put a lot of time, money and effort into stock picks. The hardest thing to do is sell. With bad investments, it is often because we hate to admit failure. With good ones, we expect the value will continue to rise and fear selling would be getting out too early. How many got it wrong with Nortel? Many believed their stock would continue to skyrocket when the unthinkable happened and it went to zero.

Here are some common financial blind spots: 3) Framing Consider you have a million dollars in a portfolio. Due to market events, you are down 5%. Often, framing in terms of dollars elicits a stronger emotional reaction. Hearing you are down $50,000 could lead an investor to sell in panic. By looking at similar problems in different ways, it can help bring rationality to our decisions. 4) Short-Term Focus Humans tend to focus on immediate needs (food, wa-

ter, shelter, etc.). Saving for retirement 10 years away? Not so easy to prioritize when work, family and paying down debts demand the majority of our time. Human nature discounts a reward that arrives later. However, saving for the future is necessary in order to enjoy a well-funded retirement. Falling to the trap of "Once I pay for this, then I will save for retirement" tends to be a never-ending circle. 5) Over-Confidence bias Your friend picked a 'sure thing' for his portfolio which doubled in value. He is proud of himself and has told you and everyone else. That same friend then picked the 'next sure thing' but the price dropped in half. Now he's blaming the markets, the company, his advisor, and even bad luck. The problem with attaching success to yourself and failure to an outside influence is that you may mistakenly grant yourself wisdom and experience you may not actually have, and become overconfident in your skills. Even the pros get it wrong from time to time. Warren Buffet, arguably one of the best investors of our time, has admitted his mistakes, learned from them and moved forward. He shows humility and a regimented process for investing. To overcome your financial blind spots, you may wish to consult a professional who will work with you to design a plan that fits your unique lifestyle, goals and circumstances and help keep you on track. Until next time… Invest Well. Live Well.

TNRD will seek legal advice on Stump Lake flooding issue JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The ThompsonNicola Regional District will seek legal advice before it can commit to helping Stump Lake residents concerned about flooding. Last week, a group of residents appeared before the regional district’s board of directors. The board was told the area needs quick action by way of support for an application to Emergency Management BC to remove water from Stump Lake, a body of water along Highway 5A, between Kamloops and Merritt, that is prone to flooding each spring. Lake residents said the water came up five feet this year and has only receded 19 inches. They worry for next year, with damage to date reportedly exceeding seven figures. At issue is timing before the lake freezes. “Without any intervention, the level of the lake going into next spring freshet is going to be higher than it’s ever been in 100 years,” Stump Lake resident Randy Bourne told the TNRD board, urging elected representatives for immediate action as winter is around the corner. The board made no commitment to apply

to have lake water removed. TNRD chair Ken Gillis said the board would seek both staff and legal advice. “We understand the urgency,” he said. In June of this year, after the lake flooded, forcing closure of the highway between Kamloops and Merritt, TNRD Area M (Nicola Valley North) director David Laird said the issue has been ongoing since 2017, but is worse this year. “It’s even more impacted this year because of the amount of water the freshet brought down and the amount of rain we’ve had in the last two or three weeks,” Laird said then. “The whole surface of the lake has actually risen approximately 12 feet above where it was in 2017.” Laird said the water had affected between six and eight properties “quite severely,” as well as lake frontage. He said the province has raised Highway 5A, as water levels have risen. Laird said a consultant was hired in recent years to investigate the potential for removing water from the lake. The issue, he said, dates back a century, at which time a berm was apparently constructed

at the lake. Information about who placed the berm is not available, Laird

Chief Rosanne Casimir of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc will soon be adding a new position to her resume, having been acclaimed to the board of the BC Assembly of First Nations. The assembly represents the 203 First Nations in British Columbia, with a mandate to advance First Nations initiatives and rights. “I’m truly excited that I had my fellow council members support to be able to go and participate at that level,” Casimir said. “I’m looking forward to being a part of that process.” Some were concerned that Casimir taking on the additional responsibility would mean stepping away from her current position as Tk’emlups chief. Not only is that not the case, Casimir told KTW, but she intends to run for re-election in the next Tk’emlups election, in 2021. “I’m still their chief and I’m

very proud to be serving this community,” she said. Casimir hopes to be able to bring much of her experience in governance and leadership to her three-year term on the board of the BC Assembly of First Nations. She said she is also looking forward to learning more about that next level of First Nations government. Along with Casimir, Chief Brian Assu of We Wai Kai was

also acclaimed. There will be an election for regional chief during the assembly’s annual general meeting on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18. Casimir noted two candidates — Cheryl Casimir and Terry Teegee — recently visited with Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc to go over their platforms. “It’s going to be exciting, whoever is elected leader for that seat,” she said. A female youth representative will also be elected at the AGM. Casimir said her priority is to continue working on behalf of all First Nations, now at multiple levels. “I’m excited about being a part of it and learning,” she said. “Being able to apply the skills I have, but also learning from that next level of First Nations government.”

Jack Gregson trail to close KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A local trail connecting the downtown with Valleyview will be permanently closed next month to make way for an expansion of railway tracks through Kamloops. The Canadian Pacific Railway will be shutting down the Jack Gregson Trail as of on Nov. 9 to enable the construction of a new track in its place along the existing CP mainline. “This unofficial path, which came about through casual use, is located within CP’s railway right of way. The path was neither designed nor intended to be a public pathway,” the rail company stated on its website.

The trail runs along the South Thompson River for 1.25 kilometres, from the end of Vicars Road, around a Valleyview industrial area, and alongside CPR tracks to Lorne Street East downtown. According to the CPR, the additional track will accommodate “significantly increasing shipment volumes” that will be moving through Kamloops on CP’s rail line, which is being used as part of a long-term deal announced last December between Canadian National Railway and Teck Resources to transport steelmaking coal to Teck’s expanded Neptune Terminals in North Vancouver. That agreement runs from April 2021 through

the end of 2026. Residents can expect to hear heavy machinery and trucks during construction and notice an increase in dust, the company stated. Construction will occur during daytime hours, but night work may be required as well, according to the CPR. The trail is named in memory of the late entomologist Jack Gregson, who founded the Kamloops Outdoor Club back in the 1930s. Gregson tended flowers and seeded shrubs along the trail near his home, according to an archived Kamloops Daily News article. The rail company did not specify what length the new track will be nor give a timeline for the construction work.

MP vice-chair of House committee KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod has been elected vice-chair of the House of Commons standing committee on Indigenous and Northern Affairs. McLeod, who is serving her fourth term as MP, is also the Conservative party’s shadow minister for Crown-Indigenous Relations. “It is an honour to have been chosen by my colleagues to serve as the vice-chair of the Indigenous

and Northern Affairs Committee,” McLeod said. “I look forward to continuing to listen to Indigenous peoples and studying practical solutions to improve the lives of those living in urban, rural and remote areas.” She said it’s important to find ways to remove systemic barriers First Nations, Métis and Inuit people face as they work toward full participation in Canada’s economy, including the resource sector, which she noted is key to lifting many out of poverty.

Singh elected to FCM board Formerly homeless youth to conduct homeless count TODD SULLIVAN

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Way Home Kamloops is about to start work on a community-wide youth homelessness count that will put youth who were previously homeless at the front of the project. This youth-led project has been funded by the RBC Foundation. A Way Home Kamloops is an agency that provide youth with housing, education and employment training. Executive director Katherine McParland said five youth advisors will be hired to lead the initiative. She said the youth will develop a unique methodology that will uncover hidden homelessness and give voice to the most marginalized in youth in the community about gaps in services and solutions that are needed. This program will provide employment and education peer navigation supports and a work experience program for youth who had previously experienced homelessness. “It’s another way to build capacity for so many young people at A Way Home,”

said Kira Cheeseborough, peer navigator at the agency. “We really value that lived expertise. It’s the core and central to all that we do.” A Way Home Kamloops has already conducted interviews with candidates for the five positions, with the youth homelessness count scheduled to occur in the spring and early summer of 2021. The peer navigation program officially launched in November of 2018 after being developed by Cheeseborough after she began to see the barriers formerly homeless youth could encounter when trying to return to school or the workforce. She began to conceptualize the program as a way to help young people feel more comfortable and be able to pursue their goals or ambitions with a peer who shares the same experience. “Day to day, I would be getting young people connected with employers, helping support them in building their resumes, interview skills,” she said. Youth are also helped with school registration and receive financial support via bursaries from Thompson Rivers University.

A Kamloops city councillor has been elected to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities board. Coun. Arjun Singh joins the organization, which represents local governments across the country at the federal level, for a one-year term. “I’ll be able to work on a national level with colleagues from across the country on issues that relate to the federal government and local governments and be a voice for Kamloops there,” Singh said. Issues related to Kamloops on the federal stage cited by Singh include infrastructure and pandemic-related funding, climate action and the criminal code as it relates to street issues. Singh joins the FCM following tenure on the Union of British Columbia Municipalities board, including as president. Council’s longest-sitting councillor said his UBCM experience

KAMLOOPS COUN. ARJUN SINGH

will benefit his role on the FCM and explained how the two differ. “It’s more sort of day-to-day work,” Singh said of working with the province. “But the big dollars come from Ottawa.” Singh said the FCM has had success in recent years working with the federal government, adding he is excited to join the board, calling it an “honour.” Despite his experience, he said it will be a learning curve and the board is bit daunting, with 75 members and bilingualism, due to representation from across the country. Singh won’t need to polish up his French, however.

He will be part of the British Columbia caucus, one of eight representing the province on the national stage. This year’s FCM president is also from B.C. — Prince George city councillor Garth Frizzell. “I know Garth well,” Singh said. “He’s a very, very good man and I think it will be fun to work with Garth and the rest of the FCM board this next year.” Singh’s FCM commitment is for one year, with possible re-election year-by-year, and includes board meetings that would typically require travel, but are likely to be held via Zoom, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Singh was elected to FCM by elected officials across British Columbia. He thanked Mayor Ken Christian and city council for support. Coun. Sadie Hunter was elected to UBCM board earlier this year. However, she has stepped aside to run as the Kamloops-North Thompson NDP candidate in the provincial election, which is on Oct. 24.

Having access to personal protective equipment like masks, gloves, and sanitizer has become a matter of daily life for many amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Local and regional First Nations recently received a substantial boost to their inventory from an unusual source — the Taiwanese embassy, which sent Andy Chen to Kamloops from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Vancouver. Tk’emlups te Secwépemc Chief Rosanne Casimir told KTW she received an invitation to meet a small delegation and, when she arrived at Chief Louis Centre, Casimir learned of the embassy’s

She found the embassy intended to donate 6,000 masks and sanitizing material to not only Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc but also to the Whispering Pines and Skeetchestn bands. “It was very humbling to receive,” Casimir said. “It was an amazing gesture, especially at this time, with COVID.” Casimir, First Nations Tax Commission chief commissioner Manny Jules, Skeetchestn Chief Ron Ignace, Whispering Pines Chief Michael

LeBourdais and Q’wemtsin health director Colleen Lessman were all on hand to meet with the delegates from Taiwan. Taiwan is now the second-largest producer of masks after China. With an invitation to the Taiwanese delegates to attend a future Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Pow Wow, as well as an invitation for local band delegates to visit the Vancouver location of the Taipei Economic and Culture Office, Casimir hope that there can remain a relationship between the two communities. “Maybe one day we could even go to Taiwan,” she said. “For us, we’re always about creating relationships and it’s about supporting one another. These acts of kindness really do make a difference.”

The event, organized by the Kamloops Art Gallery, features video projections on building facades and exhibits in Riverside Park, bringing some previous gallery-based video exhibits out into the open. This year’s projects on display touch on themes of power and resistance, strength and fragility, public and private and connection and isolation. Works featured were created by artists from around the

Hero of the

world, ranging from animation to multi-channel video and other multimedia displays. There are a number of ways to take in Luminocity throughout its run. All events are free and open to all ages. Two main curator tours will anchor the event, covering all 15 locations beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, and Friday, Oct. 30, each limited to 50 people.

After some delays on the project due to the COVID-19 pandemic, artist Vaughn Warren is back at work on the Let Their Spirit Soar sculpture he has been developing in association with the Skeetchestn Indian Band. The sculpture is intended to memorialize missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and LBTQ+ individuals. When Warren began to work on the project again, it became clear to him the wood that was originally going to be used wasn’t going to work. “Once I got inside of this wood, I discovered some voids and deficiencies,” Warren said, so the decision was made to acquire a new piece of wood for the sculpture. Both the original wood and new pieces were donated by Gilbert Smith Forest Products. Once the decision was made to obtain a new piece of wood,

it was also decided to move the project to Warren’s workshop behind Kamloops Makerspace in order to streamline the process and minimize any further delays. The original plan was for the sculpture to be completed in August of this year. Instead, it will likely be completed in late October or early November. The project began in August of 2019 with

collaborations and community participation in the design stage. Though the workshop behind Makerspace is fenced in, those curious about the sculpture can take a look at the current work in progress. “I’m very honoured to be asked to carve something and to sculpt something about such a profound issue,” Warren said. “I was hired for my style and collaboration

and community participation with band members of Skeetchestn.” Warren said he wished there could have been more awareness and conversation around the project and its subject while it was being developed, but the pandemic that has kept most people indoors made that more difficult to accomplish. “This sculpture will live on through time and do that, but at this time, it’s been very challenging to have press conferences or meetings,” he noted. When completed, the sculpture will find a home in a central location on the land of the Skeetchestn Indian Band, west of Kamloops, to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and LBTQ+ individuals.

A Way Home Kamloops has launched registrations for its fourth annual Campout To End Youth Homelessness. Like many other fundraisers in 2020, it’s going to look a little bit different this year, due to the pandemic. The campout is an annual fundraiser that helps shine a light on youth homelessness in Kamloops. Participants camp overnight, outside in a cardboard box, and collect pledges for the cause. Campers are encouraged to raise money to fund programs that help support homeless youth in Kamloops. With physical distancing a priority, what is normally a group campout event of more than 50 people will now see 30 people camping in McDonald Park in North Kamloops on Dec. 11 and into Dec. 12. But that isn’t the only way to participate. A Way Home Kamloops is encouraging people to sign up to do their campout virtually, by finding a safe spot in their yard to set up. Distanced participants will be able to stay connected through social media and Zoom sessions and A Way Home Kamloops is following coronavirus safety protocols at the McDonald Park location. Last year, the event raised just over $50,000, a mark organizers are again aiming to hit. Money raised goes to fund A Way Home Kamloops programs, which provide youth with housing, education and employment training. Previous campouts have helped open Safe Suites supportive housing and funded the Youth Housing First program, which housed 71 youth in 2019.

TEEING UP ANOTHER DONATION FOR RIH: For 23 years, the IndoCanLinks Golf Tournament has raised money to build community relationships, while raising funds for health and education. Although its 23rd annual golf tournament, which was scheduled to take place this past July, was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization was still able to raise $60,000 for the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation. The funds will be used for the new patient-care tower, currently under construction. In the photo: Back row, from left: Mike Forbes, Sukh Gill and R.J. Toor.

Sharing five lessons from Amos the prophet

A

mos was an Old Testament prophet from around 787 BC. Israel had seen the height of their kingdom under Solomon’s 40-year reign starting around 1015 BC. Some 230 years later, we find the kingdom of Israel in serious decline when Amos comes on the scene. Amos was among the herdsmen of Tekoa when he was called on by God to declare his prophecy. The message of Amos was focused mainly on the 10 Northern Tribes of Israel. There are warnings given to six other nations and also the two Southern Tribes of Israel, but the major part of the prophecy of Amos is to the ten Northern Tribes. There are five lessons in chapter three I would like to look at and bring them down to our day. The first point God makes is in Amos 3:1-2. God reminds Israel of the great privilege it had in being brought out of slavery in Egypt. This great privilege also brought with it a responsibility before God, but the Israelites failed to obey God and were in danger of judgment.

TRU honours Grandin Thompson Rivers University has bestowed an honorary doctorate on a renowned author, animal behaviour consultant, university professor and autism activist. Temple Grandin, who changed the world’s perception of what people with autism can achieve, received an honorary Doctor of Letters from TRU during its virtual fall convocation ceremony last Friday (Oct. 16). Grandin has made contributions to the humane treatment of animals and the support and acceptance of those with autism and neurodiversity. The honorary degree is the highest form of recognition offered by TRU and awarded for demonstrated excellence in the fields of public affairs, the sciences, arts, humanities, business, law and philanthropy. “Dr. Temple Grandin embodies so much of what TRU stands for. Her work to understand animals speaks to us and our region, particularly situated as we are in ranch country,” TRU president and vice-chancellor Brett Fairbairn said in a release. By embracing her own autistic mind, Grandin has become the world’s foremost authority on animal welfare and livestock handling.

While Grandin’s work garnered her industry recognition, it was her candor and resilience in “groping her way from the far side of darkness” of autism that brought her celebrity and influence — proving autism can be guided, educated and celebrated. Born in Boston in 1947, Grandin had no speech and showed all the signs of severe autism at age two. However, she wasn’t formally diagnosed with autism until she was in her 40s. In 1970, Grandin earned her bachelor degree in human psychology. In 1974, she began working as the livestock editor for the Arizona Farmer Ranchman and in equipment design for corral industries. A year later, she earned her master’s degree in animal science for her work on cattle behaviour in different squeeze chutes. In 1989, Grandin received her PhD in animal science. She is currently a professor at Colorado State University, teaching courses on livestock handling and facility design. Grandin has authored hundreds of publications, book chapters and technical papers, in addition to 10 books.

FAITH

God warns them: “I will punish you for all your iniquities.” The second point God makes is in Amos 3:3, where he asks Israel: “Can two walk together except they be agreed?” Isaiah says in Isaiah 59:12 that he was able to bless Israel, but their sins had separated them from God. God has in love for us given his son to die for our sins, but still we reject his offer of forgiveness. The third point God makes is in Amos 3:4-6, where he gives three examples of things that give warnings that need to be hearkened to. He speaks of a lion that roars, a bird becoming ensnared in a snare and a trumpet sounding

a warning to a city. Judgment was coming to Israel and God is giving a warning. A person who disregards the warning of the lion may end up being supper for the powerful lion. A bird that is not careful may be caught by the snare and a city that takes no heed to a trumpet warning may be caught off guard. The lesson is simple — God gives warnings for our blessing. Israel did not heed the warnings of God and seek his forgiveness and received the consequence of its rejection of God’s mercy. God gives us warnings today and we often disregard them. We then receive the consequences of our rejection of God’s mercy. The fourth point God makes is in Amos 3:7, where he tells of his revelation of his thoughts toward us. We read in verse seven: “He reveals his secret to his servants the prophets.” Amos and the other prophets were faithful to their call from God. The making known of the thoughts of God in his word is complete now in the 66 books of the Bible. Do we read it? Are we seeking the truths found in

the scriptures for ourselves? It is wonderful to read the Bible for our own blessing and help. Psalm 119 is the longest psalm of all the psalms and it is all about God’s word. Psalm 119:162 says: “I rejoice at thy word, as one that finds great spoil.” The fifth point God makes is in Amos 3:8 where it says: “The lion has roared, who will not fear? The Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?” At least one point he is making is that those who know of the blessing of God’s goodness and forgiveness cannot keep it to themselves. It is good news that God so loved us that he sent his only son that whosoever trusts in him for salvation is given everlasting life at that moment. Praise be unto God for his great gift.

Mentioning ‘great’ can grate on trip’s promise

I

t seems to me there is no better way to ensure the failure of a fishing or hunting trip than to invite along someone with great expectations. Increasing the odds of a failure of a trip is if that person is travelling a distance to get here and really hopes to experience the activity to its fullest. Worse still is if that person thinks you know what you are doing and can truly deliver a day of the incredible hunting or fishing you’ve talked about in the past. Of course, when you invite someone up in such circumstances, you want them to have a good time. You want them to enjoy it all and be happy. You want them to think nice things about you and your ability to do the very thing you invited

ROBERT KOOPMANS The Outdoor

NARRATIVE them up to experience. All of which makes it all the more crushing when it falls apart. This past weekend, I spent many hours over a few days with a friend from the Lower Mainland searching for deer. “Get up here,” I told him. “I’ve been seeing a lot of bucks. It will be great!”

It wasn’t so great after all. In the end, we saw just a couple of does for our effort. To make it worse, we even tried a morning of fishing. I was sure I would at least be able to deliver on that, as this is really a great time of year to chase trout. Not a trout to be seen. Sorry, I told him. Don’t know what went wrong. It was all looking great a couple of weeks ago. He was very gracious as he loaded up his truck for the journey back home. No problem, he said — that’s hunting and fishing. He accepted our thrashing without making me wear it. But that’s not how I felt. I picked locations and made a plan. I felt like I let him down. I’ve had other times when I’ve brought people out on trips, mostly fishing, hoping to share a bit of magic. Some of the people are new to

fishing and want to see what all the fuss is about. It’s those people I most want to have a good day. And then I take them out to a place where only days before I’d had a smoking day and come up blank, or with only a fish or two for six hours fishing. Ouch. Those experiences hurt the most. I can take a bad trip or three without worry, I’ve had my share of good days to keep the tanks filled. But for someone who has not experienced the rush of really good fishing, it’s hard to explain to them that it’s really not like this, that’s it’s often much, much better. It’s OK, they almost always say, it was still a fine time. Perhaps the danger is in the promise. Perhaps it’s risky to suggest at any time that anything is a sure thing. Maybe such a suggestion is

a guaranteed invitation to an empty cooler. Inevitably, it seems the best times are the ones that happen spontaneously. Unplanned successes become the stuff that great memories are made from, no matter how we’d like it to be otherwise. I think next time I’ll invite my friend up for some great forest watching and tell him the chances of seeing beasts of any kind are pretty slim. If he still comes, I bet we’ll fill tags and boat a limit of trout almost immediately. Robert Koopmans is an avid angler and hunter who spends as much time as possible in B.C.’s wild places.

Angkor Wat: A glorious, fallen civilization HANS TAMMEMAGI

SPECIAL TO KTW

n spite of torrid heat and sweat dripping down my back, I was captivated by the sight before me. Banyan roots the thickness of a horse’s torso entwined the stones of a huge temple, crushing them, twisting them and ever so slowly taking command of this patch of Cambodian jungle. This was the Ta Prohm Temple in Angkor Wat and I could see why scenes from Lara Croft: Tomb Raider were filmed here. It was mystical, humbling and unearthly. Fulfilling a childhood dream, I had joined a tour of southeast Asia, drawn, in particular, by Angkor Wat, the world’s largest temple complex with 295 temples on a 400-acre site. I discovered there aren’t enough superlatives to describe this UNESCO world heritage site. As we drove around, temples would appear by the roadside or peer at us from farther inside the jungle. We crossed bridges lined with stone statues. Monkeys swung from trees and scampered among the ruins. Built in the early 1100s, Angkor was dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu and was the capital of the Khmer Empire from the ninth to the fifteenth centuries. One of the greatest human-made places on the Earth, it is staggering that such an enormous, graceful complex was built 900 years ago. That evening a tour-mate and I wondered how such a mighty civilization could crumble in the 1500s. Today, we had seen how trees, the strongest ones in nature, could crush temples made of stone. I wondered about our present civilization. Could it last? How would it be remembered nine centuries from now? But to return to the outset of our journey: it had started in

Hanoi in northern Vietnam. We then travelled south to the vibrant Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). At the outstanding War Remnants Museum and the nearby immense tunnel network I witnessed the horror the USA unleashed on Vietnam. We then entered Cambodia, which suffered even greater brutality. In Phnom Penh, the capital, we visited one of the killing fields where the Khmer Rouge murdered two million of its own citizens or 25 per cent of its population. I held back tears, wondering how human beings could sink to such depravity. Today, the country is at peace and known as the land of a thousand smiles and a thousand sorrows. We then boarded the bus and headed through the rural countryside to Angkor Wat.

En route we disembarked at a happy-spot (toilet stop) and a cute girl promptly placed giant hairy tarantulas on us. She smiled as we shrieked in shock. After numerous photos, she accepted donations, placed all the spiders back in a jar and then sought out another bus. During our trip, Sal, our guide insisted we sample fried silk worms, tarantulas, crickets and cockroaches. Because Cambodia is poor, fried insects are a popular food. Surprisingly, they had a nice crunch and didn’t taste too bad. We stayed at a hotel on a potholed street in Siem Reap and next morning boarded tuk tuks to the Angkor Wat complex to tour one of the temples. Its walls were intricately carved with Buddhas, elephants, numerous warriors and beautiful dancer-consorts called apsaras. Giant stone Buddha faces

looked down from high towers. The wear and tear of centuries revealed many stones out of place, often broken and badly weathered. At temple entrances, artists painted and sold souvenir pictures. Small groups of legless men — landmine victims — played strange instruments, appealing (successfully) to our generosity. The jungle pressed in everywhere. Dominating the luxuriant foliage were towering banyan trees with their large roots curving over or through walls in a powerful, yet almost casual, manner. The temples, consisting entirely of ancient grey stones, had no decorations, but occasionally we encountered a splash of colour at the sight of a monk sitting cross-legged in a saffron robe with candles flickering in the dusk. Back in Siem Reap, we found Pub Street, which was alive with

crowds, thumping music and boisterous parties. Restaurants and bars proliferated, most serving beer at the bargain price of 50 cents (US). We enjoyed dinner and a traditional Apsara performance with dancers wearing bright colours; their movements, including complicated hand positions, were slow and symbolic. The next morning we watched the sun rise. Sleepy-eyed, we joined a vast crowd all waving their cell phones toward the east — sunlight slowly cast a scarlet halo around the temple. It was magnificent and remains one of my most vivid memories of this exotic and spiritual place. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent travel article syndicate.

The rich history of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church KEN FAVRHOLDT

SPECIAL TO KTW

T

here is a building on the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc reserve that has a remarkable history, spanning almost 175 years on the same location. But it has undergone changes that conceal the long story of its connection with the Tk’emlups people and the region. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, at the west end of Chilcotin Road, was established after the Hudson’s Bay Company had relocated its fort to the west side of the North Thompson River in 1843. It became the nucleus of the village that grew up around it. Although the signboard in front of the church today indicates it was originally built about 1870, part of it is actually much older. Its appearance today is how the church was reconstructed in 1900. When the Tk’emlúps band undertook restoration of the church in the mid-1980s, the remains of a hewn log floor system was discovered within the building, possibly part of the original church erected on the site by the Secwépemc te Tk’emlúps. The first missionaries in the area were the Jesuits in 1843. Based on other early missions they established, the first church was likely a squared-log building with a simple cross on top. Three years after the first Jesuits visited, a mission was established at Tk’emlúps. In a letter dated June 1, 1846, Father Nobili wrote: “At the fort of the Sioushwaps, I received a visit from

all the Chiefs who congratulated me on my happy arrival amongst them. They raised a great cabin to serve as a church …” In 1858, the first Oblate missionaries came to British Columbia, now a colony, after spending 11 years prosyletizing in Oregon. Father Jean-Charles-JeanBaptiste-Félix Pandosy was founder of the Okanagan Mission (Kelowna) in 1859, which became the church’s headquarters for the Interior.

ing Louis Clexlixqen, known as Petit Louis, the hereditary chief of Tk’emlups, after 1852. Louis converted to Catholicism in the early 1860s and, about 1866, he became a church chief (an appointment by the Oblates). In 1871, photographer Benjamin Baltzly visited Kamloops as part of the Geological Survey’s exploration for a railway route. He mentions in his journal that on the Tk’emlúps reserve, “they have a small log church, with mother earth for a floor and logs for seats.” Unfortunately, his well-known

photo of the river junction does not clearly show the old church. By 1872 however, the itinerant Father Florimand Gendre reported that Chief Louis had raised the money to build a new church. It was finally constructed a decade later, in 1882. In 1885, the Oblates moved their headquarters from Okanagan Mission to Kamloops, with Father Jean-Marie Le Jacq in charge. In 1891, Father Jean-Raphael Le Jeune became the rector of St. Joseph’s Church on the Kamloops reserve. Le Jeune published the Kamloops Wawa (Talk

of Kamloops), a popular newspaper, using Duployan shorthand to write Chinook jargon, with his printing press in the back room of the church. As the congregation grew, a new church was built in 1900. In the November 1900 edition of the Wawa, Le Jeune wrote: “The old log church has been torn down, and a new frame structure put in its place. The dimensions are seventy-five feet from the front door to the bottom of the sanctuary, and there is a transept fifty feet by twenty. The walls are sixteen feet high. The windows are of the Roman style, that is circular heads, five and a half feet wide, and over nine feet high. The services of a good carpenter were secured, and the Indians helped as much as they could; at times there were more than fifty working together.” The church was opened on the Sunday before Christmas in 1900. In 1985, the church was completely restored and the majority of 12,265 hours of labour was contributed by Tk’emlups band members. The bell in the tower, incorporated in the new structure, dates from the earlier church, which explains the inscription: “St. Louis Indian Reservation, Kamloops BC, Pastor Reverend Father Le Jacq, O.M.I., October 1885.” The bell was cast in New York. St. Joseph’s Church shows how a building may conceal its own history, yet reveal more than meets the eye.

our years ago, the International Olympic Committee determined skateboarding will make its debut at the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo. Matt Berger, an accomplished pro skater who was born and raised in Kamloops, could begin dreaming. “I’ve had an ironic path for becoming an Olympian,” said Berger, a 27-year-old Valleyview secondary graduate. “I never once thought about any Olympics because that was never even an option, right? “I’m skating all of the top events in the world and then, all of a sudden, skateboarding gets brought into the Olympics and those top events have now become Olympic qualifiers.” Berger underwent failed knee surgery in 2014. Reaching Tokyo, chasing the podium in X Games and Street League Skateboarding events, featuring in videos, signing sponsorship deals and earning competition prize money were not atop the list of reasons Berger was inspired to make a comeback. “When it’s taken away to that extent, you get to the core of why you do what you do and why you love it,” said Berger, who lives in Huntington Beach, Calif. “For me, it got to the point where I was like, ‘I don’t care if I can do this as a career any more. I love it so much. I just want to be able to do it.’

RBC OLYMPIANS PHOTO Pro skateboarder Matt Berger of Kamloops is positioned well to compete at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

That became the driving force.” Berger began talks with a surgeon who convinced him to go under the knife again in November of 2017. “After having a cadaver implant and 11 months of doing slow rehab on it, I’m very lucky,” Berger said, noting the surgery was experimental. “I feel like I’ve got my life back. My knee feels 100 per cent. It never bothers me anymore.” Men’s and women’s street and park events will be included in the 2020 Games, which have been pushed to the summer of 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Berger, who competes in the street discipline, won gold at the Canada Skateboard National Championships in March in Toronto. The victory vaulted him into 17th place in Olympic World

Skateboarding Rankings, making him the top-ranked Canadian on the planet, which was subsequently rocked by the pandemic. Nationals was Berger’s mostrecent competitive event. If the Olympic qualification period ended today, Berger would be going to Tokyo, he said. “All competitions have stopped and everyone is just playing it by ear to see what the governments do with coronavirus restrictions,” Berger said. “It sucks, of course, because we’re all looking forward to it. “But at the same time, it’s not the end of the world. I’ve always been the type of guy to just kind of roll with the punches. It’s not like the dream is over. It’s just been delayed. We’ve got nine months until [Tokyo] 2021.” With scheduling paused, Berger is making time to hold up his end of a deal struck with the RBC Olympians program, which provides financial support to aspiring Canadians in turn for their ambassadorship.

Five judges will score the street competition in the Tokyo Olympics at the Ariake Urban Sports Park, where skaters will perform two 45-second runs and five tricks in each round. Kamloops could have one of its own taking a run at the podium. “When the opportunity came and someone asked me if I wanted to go, it was an absolute nobrainer,” Berger said. “Of course I want to represent the country that’s shaped me into who I am.” IN THE STANDINGS KTW checked Olympic World Skateboarding Rankings last week and Berger was ranked 17th.

Blazers’ season pushed back into new year U Sports The Western Hockey League has further postponed the start of its 2020-2021 regular season, moving opening day to Jan. 8. That news was announced last week in a league-issued press release, which also noted there will be no inter-division play during the regular season, which is taking previously unseen form as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Teams in each division will be restricted to playing each other during the regular season. WHL commissioner Ron Robison took questions during a virtual media conference. He said the Jan. 8 regular season start

to report to clubs after Christmas. “The WHL looks forward to continuing work with government and health authorities in our region and will implement any measures that are necessary to protect our players, staff, officials and fans during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the press release said. “A final determination has not yet been made as to whether spectators will be permitted to attend WHL games, as this will be subject to the approval of the health authorities in each jurisdiction.” In mid-June, the league bumped its projected regular season start date to Oct. 2. In early August, the WHL pushed back opening day to Dec. 4.

meet demise MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The axe has fallen on most of what was left of the 2020-2021 Canada West season. U Sports, the governing body for national university sports championships, announced on Thursday its board’s decision to cancel all remaining 2020-2021 national championships. No Canada West conference regular season, playoff or championship events will be held in men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, hockey and wrestling, along with women’s rugby 7s. Decisions on championships in curling, track and field and swimming have been deferred to a later date. “The general feel from the COVID task force was there could be an opportunity there without impacting the integrity of the sport, but some work still has to be done,” TRU WolfPack athletics and recreation director Curtis Atkinson said. “No definite answer on those yet.” The TRU WolfPack have varsity basketball, volleyball, soccer and swimming teams for men and women. TRU baseball and cheerleading squads are club teams that operate outside of the U Sports umbrella. Conference members are exploring competitive opportunities for studentathletes that adhere to regional cohort play. “The schools inprovince are very much committed to exploring ways for continued competition,” Atkinson said, noting he expects only practices and exhibition play to occur before Christmas. “It won’t look the same and it won’t lead to a championship, but we are confident we can still provide some meaningful opportunites and learn a lot from it. It’s an opportunity for us to learn

some things about the cohort competition model and how it can be executed if we’re in a similar position next year.” Canada West set an initial deadline of Oct. 8 to decide whether to go ahead with second-term conference competition. On Oct. 2, the deadline was pushed to Nov. 2. The conference press release includes several reasons why Canada West did not wait until then to cut the cord: • ensuring the health and safety of student-athletes and others; • rising case numbers across portions of Western Canada, particularly in the age group of university students; • continued interprovincial travel restrictions imposed by provincial health authorities; • financial impediments to traditional conference competition due to COVID-19 mitigation protocols, including heightened travel costs. In June, five temporary leave or layoff notices were handed out in the TRU WolfPack athletics department. One has since been rescinded. The U Sports and Canada West cancellations announcements likely mean the four affected staff members will not be coming back in 2020-2021. Remaining WolfPack staff includes six head coaches (swimming’s Dalke, a seventh, is technically a contractor), along with Atkinson, athletics coordinator Jon Shepard and athletic therapist Kevin Brechin. Atkinson, who met virtually on Thursday with Canada West brass and his WolfPack crew, is confident current staffing levels will remain in place for the remainder of the season. “It wasn’t a shock, but when that final blow comes, it still hurts,” Atkinson said of the tone in the meetings.

Kaylie and Jaiden Kayer were amped for the photoshoot, with KTW photographer Dave Eagles perched to capture 16-year-old twin sisters ripping around a wet and muddy corner on a crisp October day at Whispering Pines Motorsports Compound. The moto-money shot came at Jaiden’s expense, with Kaylie, the elder by about 60 seconds, making the turn first to shower her younger sister in sloppy soil. Jaiden, her white riding gear sullied, wiped sludge from her face shield and revealed half-hearted discontent with several choice words before the siblings shared a laugh. The interaction was a telling glimpse of their motocross relationship. Kaylie — the 2019 and 2020 Future West Moto B.C. ladies’ division champion — has the lead when it comes to results. “Jaiden is not always so competitive, like me,” Kaylie said. “She’s always just a little bit behind, not so aggressive on the track like I am, where I can go and push as hard as I can. “I have no fear at all, where Jaiden is just a little bit more timid, cautious, where I’m not. I’ll just go out there and send it.” Jaiden provided similar analysis. “She’s much more competitive and kind of aggressive than me,” Jaiden said. “Last

year, she used to lap me lots. This year, she doesn’t lap me. It’s nice. But when she did lap me, I’d be like, ‘Yes, there’s Kaylie. She’s going up front!’ It’s just fun. She makes me motivate myself to ride more and more. “I want to be just like her one day.” There were four stops on the 2020 Future West provincial circuit, which was truncated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Each was held at Whispering Pines and Kaylie won them all. Jaiden wound up ninth overall, improving on her 12th-place finish last year. Kaylie ran away with the overall title in 2019, with three gold medals, four silver medals and one 11th-place finish in the eight-stop season. Events were held in Kamloops, Kelowna, Nanaimo, Mission, Prince George, Pemberton, Williams Lake and Quesnel. “It gets my adrenaline going,” Kaylie said. “I love jumping and being in the air. That always gets me going. Even watching people ride makes me excited.” Kaylie races against the

boys in the 250 junior class on the Future West series. She placed 13th overall in 2020, a substantial improvement on her 36th-place finish in 2019. “I got that side, no fear, like wanting to go out there and jump everything, from my dad,” Kaylie said. “When I broke my wrist, it was a little bit of a setback. I just love to go out there and jump and rail the corners as fast as I can.” They were three years old when father Jason bought them their first bike. If only he knew what that purchase would mean for his wallet. “You owe me mechanic bills,” Kaylie said, mimicking her dad. Kaylie took to the sport first, said mom, Dawn, but it wasn’t long before both developed a love for off-road racing. “It’s super cool because you always have someone to go out riding with at the track,” said Kaylie, noting she is forever thankful for mom and dad’s Savona-based taxi service. “We’re always pushing each other. I’m always telling Jaiden, ‘Oh, you can do this,’ and she’s telling me,

‘You should do that.’” Both South Kamloops secondary students began competitive motocross racing three years ago. Kaylie was first onto a four-stroke Husqvarna 250. Jaiden was right behind her. Now both of their steeds have nicknames. “My Princess,” said Jaiden, who, along with her sister, was profiled this fall online at directmotocross.com. “It’s just my baby. I just love it. I’ve just always been like, ‘Don’t touch my Princess.’ “I’m getting top 15 now. My goal is to be top three and battling with my sister. I’m getting more aggressive as I go on. Each time I go out and ride, I see a big improvement.” Kaylie, who calls her bike The Rocket, considers her top result a ninth overall finish on the Western Canadian portion of the 2019 National Rockstar Triple Crown Series, which features some of the top riders in North America. She placed seventh at the Kamloops race, her top finish on the four-stop circuit, which also included events in Alberta and Manitoba. The pandemic wiped out the 2020 Western Canadian Triple Crown series, but Kaylie has her eyes on the podium in 2021, with a longer-term goal of becoming the fastest woman in Canada. Familiar competition will be at her heels. “She should be worried off the starts,” Jaiden said. “I get really good starts now. Hopefully, next year I can get her a little nervous that I’m coming at her.”

I am an actor born in New York on October 21, 1983. As a youth, I was active in sports, playing golf, soccer and basketball. I also enjoyed theater and majored in musical theater. I have played many roles on Broadway, and starred as Danny Zuko on TV. ANSWERS

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

Carve out some time to tune into your inner muse, Aries. It’s time to have a little fun and put work and household responsibilities to the side.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, don’t blow off your obligations, but find a way to make work more fun. That may happen by teaming up with a coworker who shares your perspective.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, if things get a little confusing over the next couple of days, don’t feel the need to try to figure everything out. Take the time you need to complete the tasks at hand.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Cancer, while you may not be able to engage in all of your wildest dreams this week, you can give yourself permission to take a day off and get started.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Are your intuitive senses ringing off the hook, Leo? Trust your gut when someone asks you to help them with a situation. It may not be all that it seems right now.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Give your analytical brain a rest for the time being, Virgo. Lead with feelings and intuition instead. It may not feel comfortable just yet, but a new perspective may help.

Craft Beer. Wine. Coolers. Ciders. Specialty Liquor.

Good stuff all the time.

OCTOBER 14 - OCTOBER 20, 2020 LIBRA

- Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, if you have been trying to be more healthy or get in shape, focus on what you’re gaining rather than giving up. This can make you more successful in your endeavors.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22 Romantic vibes are very strong in your life right now, Scorpio. This is great if you’re connected or seeking a relationship. But resist if you’re currently unavailable.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, your domestic life may start to tug at your heartstrings. If you’re balancing work and family, you may regret not spending more time with the kids.

I have clean conscience guaranteed. It’s never been used.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Capricorn, if you have been quiet in regard to a relationship with someone, it’s time to let your true feelings be heard. It may be uncomfortable for a bit, but it’s necessary.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, money may is a hot topic in your house lately, particularly how more is going out than coming in. Corral your spending for awhile as you get things under control.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, you’re never one for following the pack, so don’t start now. Embrace your unique sense of self and continue to march to your own beat.

“Husband, Father, Grandfather Extraordinaire”

Cynthia was a tireless warrior for the causes of social justice and spent her whole life fighting for these causes with a sword of fearless determination and courage and a shield of love and kindness. She blazed trails for social justice wherever she worked or lived. She never backed away from challenges even when she was rowing upstream. As the Coordinator of the Sexual Assault Counselling Centre in Kamloops for 20 years, she organized countless Take Back the Night marches in an effort to make our streets safe for women and girls.

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I (Renee Spence) tell you that my loving partner of 30 years passed away on October 14, 2020.

Since retiring in 2014, Cynthia has travelled extensively and actively volunteered locally at the Kamloops Food Bank and the Pinegrove Seniors Community. During our travels she volunteered at animal shelters and schools in Fiji, Tonga and Mexico. This was the work and the human connections that she thrived on. Being of service was the essence of Cynthia Davis. She was actively volunteering up to a month before she passed away. Along with me, many are mourning her now including her family in the United States; her mother Margaret Davis, her sisters Marilee Davis and Suzanne Guillebeau and her brother JR Davis. Also her soul sister Connie Leonard and her family, her dear friend George Pruden, and her very special godchild Zoe Willard. At a later time we will gather as friends and family for a circle ceremony to honour her and send up to her the Women’s Warrior Song. Her journey on this plane is over, but her spirit and light live on. Thank you all for your kindness and support. If you wish to make a donation in her name, please consider donations to the Kamloops Food Bank, the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre or Friends of Puerto Vallarta Animals in Mexico (online) or in Canada etransfer to pvanimals@gmail.com

Margaret Day 1947 - 2020

In Loving Memory of Lillian Louise Riguidel

Sheldon YoungMatus October 13th, 1972

It is with great sadness that the family of Margaret Day announces her passing on October 12, 2020. Margaret is survived by her loving husband John, son Andy (Cindy), daughter Debbie, mother Emily, sister Fay (Chuck) and four grandchildren Zack, Johnathan, Celina and Ethan. Margaret also leaves behind many good friends that she loved and cherished. Margaret was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Family happiness was her main purpose and it brought her great joy being surrounded by her family. She was a talented gardener, cook and seamstress. Margaret was always there for anyone who needed her.

She will be deeply missed by all who loved her. To honour you Mo I get up every day and take a breath And start another day without you in it. To honour you I laugh and love with those who knew your smile And the way your eyes twinkled with mischief and secret musings. To honour you I take the time to appreciate everyone I love I know there is no guarantee of times spent in their presence. You were my light, my heart, my gift of love from the highest source. So every day, I vow to make a difference, share a smile, live, laugh and love. Now I live for both of us, so all I do, I do to honour you.

On October twenty second five years ago today, the angels took you by the hand and lifted you away, with breaking hearts we knew we had to say goodbye, we lifted our chins towards the heavens and watched you learn to fly.

Loved and missed on your Birthday and every day. Love from your family and friends

Carmina was known for always lending a helping hand and taking care of everyone that came into her life. She had a passion for harvesting from her beautiful garden on Willow Street and giving what she could to whomever stopped by.

The tradition will continue! Over the years, Mike, being her only child, was the apple of her eye. Her Grandchild Carlene came along, who she loved and adored dearly. Then in early 2020, her Great Grand Daughter, Emersyn arrived, and filled her heart with utmost joy.

Mrs. Kathleen (Kay) Jessica Turner I was born September 14th, 1928 in Calcutta, India and lived there for ten years, and attended boarding school in Darjeeling. I lived the WW2 years in Scotland, when my parents returned to Calcutta, India. My father, Lieutenant Commander GS Gellatly of the RN and the RINR died in Bombay in 1942. I arrived in Canada with my mother in 1946 and became a proud Canadian citizen of Scottish descent on January 1st, 1947. I married Dr. WD Turner in 1954, who was, until retirement in 2010, a very dedicated Chiropractor, loving his wonderful healing work. He was my best friend. I thank the Good Lord for giving us 58 years together. We really have had a most interesting and good life. Most fortunate indeed. We enjoyed our travelling to so many countries, including returning to India. Of course, I was always the back seat driver. I could see the speedometer while looking over his shoulder. Our trips in the motorhome were always a delight. Please look after my Sandy for me (if he is still alive). He has been a wonderful dog and a great comfort when Dad left us. I will have shortbread ready, Brian, Heather and Kevin. Glenn Douglas, nine month old son, went home to be with the Lord in 1960. To our children, Dr. Brian D Turner (Diane), Mrs. Heather D grandchildren, Jessica, Alex, Scott (Stacey), Kerry (Jordan), grandsons Linden and Jaxon, I have loved you all and asked ahead. Please do not mourn for me, I have gone home to be wonderful life and am happy to leave it now.

Dad and I belonged to the Kamloops Scottish Country Dancing Group for many years, and I am sure we will be having perfect dancing in my new home in Heaven. Thank you Brian, Heather and Kevin for your wonderful patience with me since Dad went home. Sure to love you all. I certainly would have been lost without you, and to my wonderful daughters-in-law, thank you for all your support. I can’t forget my many wonderful friends. Enjoy your lives! I volunteered at the Yale Cariboo Music Festival for many years, and also the Red Cross Blood Clinics.

In the late 60s Rennie became the owner of 20th Century Barbershop in downtown Kamloops. He then moved onto pursue his career as a Corrections officer at KRCC and RRCC. At the age of 54 he retired as an officer, to fulfill his full time passion of training and racing Thoroughbred race horses. Rennie was a well known, well respected horseman in the community of racing. At 80 years of age, his love and devotion of the sport was still holding strong. The friends and family made over the years in the racing community were very dear to him. Rennie. Dad. Grandfather. Great Grandfather. Brother. Uncle. Cousin. Friend. We will remember and celebrate you by sharing your stories and holding your legacy in the highest regard.

May you finally rest in peace with your sweet Angel.

Gordon Moffat 1932 - 2020

On the morning of October 13, 2020 after a week with his family at his beloved Shuswap Lake home, Gordon passed peacefully in his sleep. Gordon is predeceased by his brother Don (Jeanne) and survived by his loving wife Joan, son Richard (Tricia), daughters Christine (Fred) and Cynthia (Jonathon), grandchildren Zachary, Owen, Willem, Deyne (Shawn), Lachlan and Bennett, great-grandson Pearse, and many more dear family and friends. Gordon was born in Vancouver to Wilfred and Florence Moffat. He attended Kitsilano High School where he excelled in athletics and the performing arts, and made many lifelong friends. Gordon began his teaching career in Port Alice in 1953 and in 1956 became principal at RCAF station Holberg where he met his future wife, Joan. Together, they taught in Fruitvale, Rock Creek, and Kamloops, where he was principal of Kay Bingham, David Thompson, and Dallas elementary schools. At each one, he shared his love of the arts, directing school productions, conducting choirs, and leading sing-a-longs on his banjo. When administrators were removed from the BCTF in 1988, Gordon was appointed Executive Director of the BCPVPA, a position he held proudly until he retired in 2002. For the next several years, he helped bring BC curriculum to schools in China and Dubai. Gordon loved language, keen humour, cold oysters, and single malt scotch. His fondest memories were of summers at the lake, and the relationships built with wonderful Lee Creek neighbours. But most of all, he loved his family of whom he was very proud. He will be dearly missed. The family extends their heartfelt thanks to the caregivers from Interior HomeCare Solutions, Chase Home and Community Care, and Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice. There will not be a service. If you wish to make a donation in his memory, please consider the BC Cancer Society or Heart and Stroke Foundation. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

Victor Ofukany passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early morning of October 7, 2020 at the age of 84. Victor was born in Peesane, Saskatchewan on February 2, 1936. Vic grew up on the farm with his sister Rose Denomey (Jim) and four brothers Jerry (Beth), John (Evany), Frank (Bev) and Robert (Brenda) Ofukany. Vic met a local girl Donna Bromm in Crocked River while playing fastball. They fell in love and were married in Tisdale, Saskatchewan on April 19, 1958. Vic was predeceased by his parents Steve and Anna Ofukany (Rovinsk), sister Rose Marie Denomey (Jim) and great- granddaughter Lily Ofukany. Vic is survived by his loving wife Donna of 62 years married, and children Deb Stittle (Len), Laurie-Anne Kopp (Joe), Greg Ofukany (Loretta), Carrie Costantino (Frank), grandchildren Cole Stittle (Holly-Rose), Tyler Stittle, Justin Kopp (Diane), Jordon Kopp (Tiffany,) Drayden Kopp, Travis Ofukany (Natalie), Troy Ofukany (Kristen), Racheal McLeod (Wes) , Shawna Johnson (Carl), greatgrandchildren Aurora and Leo Stittle, Orianna Stittle, Lucas, Ethan and Spencer Kopp, Matilda Kopp, Weston Ofukany, Ella Ofukany, Kohen and Sawyer McLeod, Emilie and Elise Johnson and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. In the early 1960s Vic worked in Uranium Mine in Uranium City, Saskatchewan and at the Salt Mine at Chaplin, Saskatchewan. Vic worked as a heavy duty equipment operator building roads. He moved his 35 foot trailer and family (wife and 3 children) all over the southern interior of Saskatchewan. (They moved 60 times over 5 years). In 1964 the family moved to BC. Vic worked for 5 years on the Mica Dam project, Coquihalla Hwy, Harper Mountain Ski Resort, and many other projects. Vic retired in 1990 after the completion of the Hwy 5, 4 lane from Kamloops to Heffley Creek. Vic was a member of the Local 115 union for 54 years. Over that time Vic moved his family to Kamloops, Squamish, Salmon Arm and in 1971 moved to Heffley Creek, BC. Vic’s son and grandsons followed in his footsteps by becoming equipment operators too. Victor was a hockey dad and enjoyed watching his son Greg Ofukany play in AAA Hockey and his grandson Troy Ofukany play in the WHL. As a young single man in the early 50s Victor played fastball on the Peesan Team for 3 years, they travelled to many of the small towns throughout Saskatchewan. The team was made up of four sets of brothers. Once retired, Victor took up fastball again. He played in the senior’s games in Edmonton, Prince Rupert, Kelowna and in the US at Wenatchee, Lynden & Everson. Vic played on local team in Kamloops playing for Balco, Bencher Logging and the Sidewinders at the Dick Hart Ball Park on Todd Mtn Road until 2002. In 1997 Vic and his brother-in-law Jim Denomey donated their time and were instrumental to the excavation of the Dick Hart Ball Park field. Vic was also instrumental in building a one kilometer driveway with 5 switchbacks for his daughter and son-in-law.

The family Canada in 1976 from England.

His ability to fix absolutely anything won him the title, “If papa can’t fix it were all screwed.” Vic built many bird houses, a fishing hut, a GT Snowracer, many cow towel bars, a duck house and movable weather vanes. His nickname should have been Jimmy for Jimmy rigging. Vic loved animals and had a connection with every animal he met. Vic had a pond for many years and his gold fish grew to over 7 inches. Each year Vic would race against the squirrels to see who got the most walnuts. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the Royal Inland Hospital and Kelowna Hospital Cardiac Groups. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke and SPCA in Kamloops. A private family Celebration of life will be held in 2021.

to

Trained as an engineer in England, Mick changed careers and became a very successful salesman, (distributor for Old Dutch Foods). His Brit accent and “gift of the gab” made for great sales, and he made many friends along his route. Mick enjoyed fishing, grouse hunting, darts, target shooting and floor curling. Living at Horsefly Lake he introduced the grandkids to the joys of being in and around the water. Retiring to Kamloops in 2014 to avoid shovelling endless snow, where he continued to enjoy his hobbies until the end. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

Stewart (Skipper) George McMyn On October 12, 2020, Stewart McMyn passed away peacefully at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, at the age of 79.

Victor enjoyed string instruments especially his electric guitar he would play with bands at small town dances in Saskatchewan. Later in life Vic took up the banjo. The banjo sat idle for many years and only recently did Vic’s grandson Tyler Stittle repair it. Victor will be remembered for his love for his vegetable garden, walnut trees and grafted apple trees. He was self-sufficient making his own sauerkraut and growing his own tobacco. Vic won best garden in the City of Kamloops in 2011.

PRAYER FOR

PEACE Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. When there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy. Grant that I may not so much Seek to be consoled, as to console; To be loved, as to love; For it is in the giving that we receive; And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

The Little Unicorn by Peggy Kociscin, Albuquerque, New Mexico

There lived a little unicorn (From when the earth was new), His coat so white it glistened, His eyes a sparkling blue.

But, as he grew and learned of life, The sparkle in his eye Grew misty as he realized Just what it means to cry.

His mother held him lovingly And tried to ease his fears About the sadness life could bring... The lonely, bitter tears.

His spirit crushed, he felt defeated, And lonely tears would start. Not understanding how to love, It simply broke his heart.

In innocence and beauty, He danced through woods and streams. The animals danced with him, His heart aglow with dreams.

He learned that there are shadows In spite of shining sun. The more he grew, he found that life Was never always fun.

She said, “Life is like a mountain, (And surely this is true) That we must climb as best we can. There’s no ‘around or ‘through.’”

But now he’s in a loving place Where all his pain has ceased, Where all accepted him and his love, Where all he knows is peace.

He laughed and played with rainbows, So happy all day through, He loved to kiss the flowers As their petals shone with dew.

For now he’d learn of feelings That come from deep within; No longer in the “dream world” Where (for so long) he’d been.

The unicorn tried tirelessly, And gave the climb his best; But he felt it was not good enough, He felt he’d failed the test.

A loving Being tells him, “You’re delightful as you are.” His spirit free, his brilliance now Outshines the brightest star!

He wandered through the meadows In the moon’s soft, silver light. He loved to gaze at all the stars That lightened up the night.

His gentle heart desired But to know the pleasure of To give and to receive The very precious gift of love.

He could not understand it When he felt himself rejected – When all his gentle being asked Was but to be accepted.

He listened to the music Of the birds that graced the trees. He frolicked with the butterflies And raced the gentle breeze.

To love meant to be happy, And yet it also brought him pain; For those he loved could hurt him Again.. and yet again.

All this was just too much for him, He knew not what to do. That he was special as himself, Somehow, he never knew.
