B.C. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry: “Too often in the past few weeks, we’ve been hearing stories of people putting aside the safety plans.”

Private home restrictions PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER LIMITS GATHERINGS TO IMMEDIATE RESIDENTS AND SIX VISITORS

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in B.C. continues to rise, with many coming from gatherings in private homes. As a result, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has issued a new public health order limiting gatherings in private homes to the immediate residents and six additional people — the maximum so-called “safe six” that are supposed to be in a household’s bubble. In some homes with a large number of family members, Henry said, six additional people may be too many. She is urging people to adhere to the public health orders and recommendations, noting Fraser Health will be the focus of the new health order, since many of the new cases stemming from private home gatherings are occurring in that health authority. She said this includes all the seasonal celebra-

tions, including Christmas, Hanukkah and Diwali. Enforcement of the public health order will be done much like bylaw infractions, via complaints, with fines levied to those defying the order. In addition, Henry wants to remind the public that the public gathering limit of 50 comes with a caveat — it requires places to have adequate space to hold those 50 or fewer people. “Too often in the past few weeks, we’ve been hearing stories of people putting aside the safety plans,” she said. Henry has also announced that the new expectation is that all people in public places indoors wear mask. The “expectation” is not an order, but Henry is asking businesses to review their COVID-19 protocols. Some businesses in Kamloops and across B.C. require customers to wear masks. Henry’s new public health order and mask “expectation” come after another record

being set in COVID-19 cases. The province recorded the most confirmed cases in a weekend count. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 23 to Oct. 25), there were 817 cases recorded. Thirty-one new cases from the weekend were in Interior Health, which has had a total of 717 cases as of Tuesday. To date, there have been more than 13,000 confirmed cases in B.C., with in excess of 2,000 being active. Of the active cases, 77 people are in hospital (38 in Vancouver Coastal Health, 26 in Fraser Health and one in Interior Health), 26 of whom are in intensive care. There were three more COVID-19-related deaths on the weekend, all involving residents of long-term care homes in the Vancouver Coastal Health region. Through Monday, 259 people in B.C. have died from the disease, while 10,734 people have recovered.

Despite the pandemic, health experts say kids can still trick or treat this weekend and goodies can be handed out, if safety guidelines are followed. “This Halloween will look a little different, but it can still be a safe and fun time as long as you use your COVID-sense,” said Dr. Eleni Galanis, physician epidemiologist with the BC Centre for Disease Control. If you get an invitation for a big group party this year, it’s best to skip that invite — especially since a new public health order limits private gatherings to immediate household residents, plus six people from your social bubble. Instead, opt for a more intimate gathering by keeping it small, local and within your social group. If you’re dressing up, you can also get extra creative this year by including a non-medical mask or face coverings as part of your costume. Costume masks should not be worn over non-medical masks or face coverings as that may make it difficult to breathe. The BCCDC has these safety tips for trick-ortreaters and those answering doors: • Stay bright: Wear bright colours and/or utilize reflective tape, buttons and lights for costumes; • Clean hands frequently: Wash your hands before and after going trick-or-treating. Keep hand sanitizer with you if eating treats on the go. You don’t need to clean every treat; • Check candy: Check the treats first and be wary of unsealed or broken wrappers. When in doubt, throw it out; • Don’t crowd: Leave space between you and other groups. Be patient and wait for other groups to finish before taking your turn; • Find creative ways to distribute candy by using tongs, a baking sheet or making a candy slide to create more space when handing out candy. Hand out individually sealed, pre-packaged treats instead of offering a shared bowl. • Help make trick-or-treating more accessible to everyone by handing out treats from the bottom of your stairs or at your curbside; • If you can, stand outside your door to hand out treats so that children won’t need to touch the door or doorbell; • If you’re unable to sit outside to hand out treats, clean and disinfect doorbells and knobs, handrails and any other high touch surfaces; • If you are decorating, avoid props that can cause coughing, such as smoke machines.

Unlike the South, the North had some drama MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

While the race in KamloopsSouth Thompson was over quickly — with the re-election of B.C. Liberal Todd Stone — the contest north of the river carried a bit more drama. In the end, incumbent Peter Milobar of the B.C. Liberals was re-elected, holding an 800-vote lead with about 2,000 mail-in ballots to count. Runner-up Sadie Hunter of the NDP would need a massive percentage of those votes to overtake Milobar in the ballot count. With a five-candidate race, Milobar said landing in the midto-low 40 per cent range as he has was where he expected to be at the end of election night. With the NDP securing a majority government on election night, Milobar balked at the notion he and fellow KamloopsSouth Thompson Liberal MLA Todd Stone are in a weaker position in Victoria. He said they remain in opposition, as they were before the election, and will continue to advocate for Kamloops and hold the government to account. “Whether you lose the vote 55-29 [seats] or 43-42, you lose the vote,” Milobar said. Milobar said he and Stone will continue to make sure Premier John Horgan and the NDP build the cancer centre they promised for Kamloops on the campaign trail and will continue to advocate for the number of projects they announced a Liberal government

difference. She said she felt the campaign went well for taking place suddenly, right after the snap election call. As for whether she may take another run at provincial politics in the future, Hunter said it’s too soon to say. Conservative candidate Dennis Giesbrecht watched the polls come in on a television downtown at Frick and Frack with his wife, campaign manager and press secretary. He said while they did not get the seat count they wanted, the 19 Conservatives garnered a decent amount of the popular vote despite not running candidates in 68 of the 87 ridings in B.C. Of his own 10 per cent of the vote, Giesbrecht said one always wants more. He said the pandemic posed challenges and the party adapted with more online presence. Green candidate Thomas Martin was married on election day and was not available for comment, devoting the day to his new bride, with whom he celebrated in a small ceremony that included their parents in Kamloops. Green representative Matt Greenwood fielded the call from KTW in his place. “It’s not quite as exciting an event as it has been in years past,” Greenwood said. He said he was not expecting to see a winning result, adding the Greens just hoped to have had a decent showing in Kamloops-North Thompson.

would follow through on. “Kamloops needs elementary schools built and we need to see a foundry centre and we need expanded Car 40 services,” Milobar said. “Government should still be building infrastructure across this province not just in ridings that they held.” Hunter, who made herself available to KTW on Tuesday, said she felt the results on election night showed that the people of Kamloops-North Thompson are looking for a change and that there is a large amount of support for the NDP government. With mail-in ballots yet to be counted, Hunter had 35 per cent of the popular vote in the riding to Milobar’s 42 per cent, while Green candidate Thomas Martin and Conservative candidate Dennis Giesbrecht each captured about 10 per cent of the 16,000 ballots cast. Ten per cent of the popular vote is the amount required to get an election expenses rebate. Hunter said she understands the probability is low that absentee ballots make enough of a difference to change the results in her favour. “That being said, there’s still a small chance, so as far as I’m concerned, I’m not going to close the door on anything until everything’s finalized,” she said. Regardless of the outcome, Hunter said she will continue to advocate for Kamloops and the region. Asked what more she could have done to unseat Milobar, Hunter said she thinks a higher voter turnout could have made a

Will Stone seek leadership? MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

As expected, B.C. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson announced on Monday that he will be stepping down as party leader following Saturday’s loss in the provincial election. In a short and direct announcement on Facebook, with no questions taken from media, Wilkinson said it is time for a new look at the top of the party. While Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone said he may again run for the post, he added time is needed for the party to regroup. “Leading the B.C. Liberals has been a great honour, but now it’s time for me to make room for someone else to take over this role,” Wilkinson said in his speech. Wilkinson said he will stay on as leader until the party selects a successor, the timeline for which

is not known, calling it a “challenging and exciting process of rebuilding the party.” Wilkinson’s announcement comes two days after his B.C. Liberal Party lost more than a dozen seats in Saturday’s provincial election and saw the B.C. NDP move from governing in a minority situation to grasping a majority in the legislature. There had been at least one B.C. Liberal candidate calling for Wilkinson to step down after the staggering defeat. Wilkinson, MLA for Vancouver-Quilchena, succeeded Christy Clark in a 2018 leadership race that featured Stone among the challengers. Speculation now turns to the contenders to the throne. Possibilities include Stone, former Surrey Mayor Diane Watts and former B.C. Liberal minister of finance Kevin Falcon, who ran and lost to Clark in the 2011 leadership race to succeed Gordon Campbell. Stone told KTW he may seek

the leadership once more, but only after the party has had time for a period of reflection. “The whole party needs to take a deep breath and really assess what happened in this last election and why our party was rejected by so many British Columbians in the Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland,” he said. Stone said he hopes the party takes the next six to nine months to conduct an internal review of “who we are and what kind of party do we want to be moving forward.” He said in 2018, after the resignation of Christy Clark, the B.C. Liberals needed to choose a new leader quickly as the NDP had a minority government that could have fallen at any moment. With the New Democrats’ majority win on the weekend, Stone said there’s a clear fouryear window during which the B.C. Liberals can now take its time.

MAJORITY NEEDS TO WORK FOR ALL

T

here are different ways to make government work and voters have entrusted the NDP to make it work with a sizeable majority. This past weekend’s provincial election in a pandemic resulted in a resounding mandate for the New Democratic Party, as British Columbians have given Premier John Horgan and his party greater responsibility than before. For three years, we saw how a minority government could work, with the NDP and Green confidence-and-supply agreement as a guiding document. The final months of that arrangement were marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw new kinds of cross-party co-operation. A majority means that such co-operation is not strictly required. The NDP’s victory was such that the B.C. Liberals’ Andrew Wilkinson has announced that he will remain in charge only until the party’s next leader is selected. The official opposition has seen its seat count reduced and its shadow cabinet thinned. As for the Greens, they obviously don’t have the same bargaining power now that they no longer hold the balance of power. However, they did manage to maintain their seat count at three and any number of third-party seats in the legislature is important in B.C.’s longstanding de facto two-party system. Throughout the campaign, much of the talk from the parties and their leaders was about COVID-19 recovery. But to then hear, two days after the election, of record-setting case counts reminds us that, in a lot of ways, we aren’t ready to move to recovery mode just yet. British Columbians don’t know what’s ahead, but those who voted made up their minds about the provincial government that will try to lead us through it. As we move from a minority to a majority government, some of the ways B.C.’s political parties work together will change. The leadership needs to work for everyone. Because, as we’ve heard from the start, we’re in this together.

A truly unique election*

C

an the provincial election results be considered with an asterisk (*)? Like the current Major League Baseball season and various labour dispute-shortened sports seasons, might the Oct. 24 election that gave the B.C. NDP a healthy majority be asterisked due to the bizarre conditions under which it was held and the historically low voter turnout that ensued? When a schedule-shortened sports champion is assigned an asterisk, it means it is not held in the same regard as champions who endured under a longer, normal season. The 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers and 1995 New Jersey Devils are examples. While the NDP’s claim to government is no less valid than that of B.C.’s previous 41 administrations, it seems a stretch to conclude — as some pundits have — that the New Democrats have started a W.A.C. Bennett-like empire and that the B.C. Liberals are on death’s door. This is British Columbia, where political parties don’t die — they simply take their ideology and engineer a hostile takeover of another, lesser-known party. This is why the Socreds of yesterday are the B.C. Liberals of today and may very well become the B.C. Conservatives of tomorrow — not to be mistaken for the B.C. Conservatives of today, led by Trevor Bolin. Since before the elder Bennett gave his futile 1972 warning to voters that the “socialists were at the gates,” British Columbia has been

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS a two-party province. Always. From 1903 through 1941, the Conservatives and Liberals were the only players on the political stage, trading benches in the legislature through 11 elections. Two coalition governments followed before the remarkable 20-year Social Credit reign began under W.A.C Bennett in 1952, interrupted by a three-year NDP government from 1972 to 1975, before Bill Bennett reclaimed the throne for his father, with the Socreds remaining in power until 1991. That was followed by a decade of New Democrats and 16 years of the B.C. Liberals (nee Socreds). And now, here we are, into the second consecutive John Horgan NDP mandate. What those 117 years have in common is that each and every one of them featured two main parties (with a smattering of third party seats here and there). From 1952 to today, B.C. has been a battle between the NDP (formerly known as the CCF) and two right of centre so-called free

enterprise coalition parties: Social Credit and B.C. Liberal. Sixty-eight years of significant support for the non-NDP party in this province does not simply vanish in one election. And it is not as if the B.C. Liberals were eviscerated. Pending final counts of mail-in ballots in a few ridings, they have about 29 seats, more than a dozen fewer than they held entering the election, but a veritable jackpot compared to where the oncemighty Social Credit found itself after its Roman-esque reign ended in 1991 (seven seats) and to where the NDP found itself in 2001, with a paltry two seats. Social Credit’s movers and shakers co-opted the B.C. Liberal Party in the early 1990s and built up their free enterprise coalition, which again formed government,. The New Democrats came back from the Joy MacPhail/Jenny Kwan duo of 2001 and are now riding high. The B.C. Liberal Party is not going anywhere. In this election, the party still managed to garner 35 per cent of the vote. The NDP received 45 per cent. No party — yet again — was the choice of a majority of voters. The B.C. Liberals (or whatever their monicker may be going forward) will need to figure out how to get back into the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island and how to rejig their free enterprise vision with a more progressive social stance, but that is not an impossible task as political parties on life support have overcome similar challenges in the past. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

KUDOS TO CHIEF ROSANNE CASIMIR DISMAYED TO SEE DEMOCRACY TAKEN FOR GRANTED Editor: It is astounding how low voter turnout is for Kamloops elections, with the exception of those at the federal level. It is estimated turnout in Kamloops-North Thompson in the Oct. 24 provincial election was 40 per cent, pending counting of all mail-in ballots. In the 2018 municipal election, it was even lower, at 30 per cent. It is not as though we have a perfect city or province. Looking at letters to the editor and comments online, scores of people complain about highways, health care, public schools, infrastructure projects and so on. But then, with the one opportunity they get to fix things, they throw it away. As someone who is not a Canadian citizen and cannot vote, I have no say in who represents me or how my taxes are spent. I would give an arm and a leg for that privilege, but get frustrated when the majority of my fellow Kamloops citizens could not spend 15 minutes going through party platforms to make an informed decision. It is even more discouraging given people had the option of mailing in ballots or voting in advance. As former U.S. president Barack Obama said: “Democracy is an everyday struggle.” It is a garden you have to nurture. It not a selfexecuting thing. You can’t take it for granted, for it is too precious to do so. Tushar Jain, Kamloops

Editor: I’m uplifted to see Tk’emlups te Secwépemc Chief Rosanne Casimir taking no guff from the bogus professional protestors harassing staff at the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion worksite on Tk’emlups turf (‘Tk’emlups First Nation says it does not support protests against Trans Mountain pipeline project,’ Oct. 19). Never mind that when I was in short pants, we were celebrating the then-new pipeline as an engineering marvel and means of powering our vehicles with our own petrol products — which it’s still doing without exploding every week. Who told the virtue-signalling pro-

testers they were entitled to speak for anybody? If they truly believe the Tk’emlups band council, and other First Nations band councils that support the project, have been “bought off,” why aren’t they at the courthouse or nearest RCMP detachment, asking that charges be laid? Doing so might force the protesters to divulge who is bankrolling them. My impression is that Casimir is one of the last people on Earth with whom one would want to tangle. The Tk’emlups First Nation has been a shrewd and successful business concern in the Thompson Valley for as long as I can remember.

The now-prestigious Thompson Rivers University began its existence on Tk’emlups’ unceded land as Cariboo College. World-class businesses have taken flight from the band’s Mount Paul Industrial Park. Tk’emlups is an essential component of the richness of the Thompson Valley and a troupe of travelling protesters presumes to speak for the band? I want to thank Casimir for putting the lie to them.

CITY SIDEWALK SNOW-CLEARING NEEDED Editor: Winter weather has returned and city crews are out and about, doing a good job on the streets for cars. The sidewalks? Not so much. Wheelchair ramps are once again impassable because there is no follow-up crew to clear them for people using wheelchairs, scooters and walkers. Every day, I see at least four people using power

wheelchairs, two people with walkers, four people with canes and more than a dozen people in their 60s walking down Summit Drive, past Notre Dame Drive, to get to the grocery stores. North of the underpass on Summit is virtually impassable every winter as it is shaded by the overpass, isn’t cleared properly and has no sand or ice-melt material put down. It results in chunky ice

and snow building up all winter. The east side is somewhat better, but there is still no sand or ice-melt material applied. The ramps are not cleared to cross any of the roadways and even the sidewalks get overwhelmed with chunks of snow and ice when the plows go by. Hundreds of school kids also cross these streets. I can no longer get out of the back

Pandemic-related patio expansion a ‘good look’ From A1

The sidewalk expansions were made from wood, not all-weather material. Already weathering from use through summer, the surface could be slippery and would likely not hold up well through the wet, cold and ice of winter. In addition, the structures could create a headache for the city’s snow-removal team, as they were not designed with snow removal in mind. Jones said it will be up to city council and management to decide whether to allow Bright Eye to retain its patio expansion. It may still be able to keep its regular patio open regardless. Other restaurants have apparently asked to keep their regular patios open, spaces that are not part of the patio expansion program. Jones said patio setups must be removed when the restaurant is closed and restaurants need to ensure patio areas and sidewalks are clear of snow and ice. “We’re not opposed to people probably leaving them up this year, but we are going to be ensuring the sidewalks are safe,” Jones said. Meanwhile, Steve Mitton, owner of Mittz Kitchen downtown,

praised the patio expansion program and hopes to see it return next spring. He said he received good feedback from customers. Mitton noted Kelowna has allowed patios to spill onto sidewalks and, as a longtime downtown restaurateur, he has been trying to get city council to allow it for some time. It took a pandemic to loosen the rules. “I hope they do it [next year],” Mitton said. “I hope they do it every year, pandemic or not. It’s such a good look for the city.” Mitton said it did not bring more business for the restaurant, but offset six tables lost inside as a result of physical distancing requirements because of the pandemic. Mitton said he had spoken with neighbouring Caffe Motivo about some sort of shared winter structure. Talk of a winter patio expansion, however, did not come soon enough. With the program set to expire and cold weather now settling into the city, Mitton said his patio was taken down. The restaurant will make do with fewer indoor seats. It is staff, however, who will feel the brunt of losing outdoor space, with two fewer needed due to the reduced capacity.

Are you a restaurant or pub owner planning to operate a winter patio? Let us know so we can publish a list of winter patio options for patrons. Email information to editor@kamloops thisweek.com. Delta Kamloops vice-president and general manager Bryan Pilbeam said Cordo Resto and Bar in the Victoria Street hotel also benefited from the expanded patio season, but he does not think the restaurant’s target market would fare well outdoors through winter months. However, he also hopes the expansion program returns in the spring, adding a level of vibrancy and street energy downtown. As restaurants look to winter months, Pilbeam said the federal wage subsidy program is critical and, without it, the restaurant would not be operating. He would also like to see additional municipal and provincial support. He said many restaurants and businesses won’t make it through

the winter because, although they were able to survive the summer, they were not able to put money in the bank to survive winter. He said more businesses will look to loans, so grants and forgiveness programs would help. “As it relates to the local market, typically it would be Christmas party season and winter season,” Pilbeam said. “Quite humbly, we would just ask people support local businesses again. If you’re not having a Christmas party, we’ve seen companies we’ve spoken to that are looking to buy gift certificates for their employees instead, so that they can go out and have dinner or, for us, a hotel stay. “Something that would be in lieu of a big get-together. If they can’t afford it, it’s understandable. But if it’s just that they don’t want to get 100 people together in a room, and you’re no longer able to, there are a lot of different opportunities.” Takeout is another way to support local restaurants, Pilbeam said. Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association executive director Carl DeSantis added that businesses do not wish to accrue the expense of keeping out-

door space open through winter months. He will be recommending to city council the patio expansion program returns next year, when the snow melts and the weather warms. Asked if he is concerned about the fate of restaurants during winter months, DeSantis said he is worried about all businesses due to uncertainty over how cold weather will impact consumer behaviour amid the pandemic. Will they be comfortable coming downtown to shop when it’s cold and with case counts continuing to rise? He said businesses continue to take every health and safety precaution and is asking residents to support small businesses through the winter. Some downtown storefronts have already closed, including 4Cats Arts Studio and Cocoa Dot Cakes. “One closure is too many,” DeSantis said, noting it impacts business owners, employees, commercial property owners, consumers and city coffers. “The best support we can provide is to get off the computer and come downtown and support local. Then our businesses will continue.”

Bobcat sighting on North Shore stirs interest Linx and bobcats are typically solitary animals living in forested areas where there’s more shelter and cover. This image of a bobcat was captured and posted on the Internet by a Kamloops This Week reader. Conservation officer Graydon Bruce said there is no risk to public safety. People are advised to keep pets on leashes and give the animal plenty of space.

Erin Henderson was enjoying a Sunday afternoon on the couch, looking out the window with her toddler, when she noticed something unusual across the street. She spotted a bobcat walking through snowy front yards on the other side of Sherwood Drive in North Kamloops. Surprised by the rare sighting, Henderson managed to take a bit of video of the wild cat as it strolled through her urban neighbourhood. Her husband captured some video footage and photos of it from the driveway. Henderson said the cat, which she thought was a lynx, didn’t seem skittish when her husband called out to it at about 1:20 p.m. on Sunday (Oct. 25). Henderson said she wished she had her 200-millimetre camera lens to capture images of the animal, which she hopes was just passing through. Conservation officer Graydon Bruce said there is no risk to public safety and the animal is believed to be a bobcat, based on a number of eyewitness accounts of its physical appearance and the area within which it was roaming. Bruce said bobcats, rather than lynx, are more common to the west side of the North Shore. People are advised to keep pets on leashes and give the animal plenty of space. He said the Conservation Officer

Service is not attempting to capture the bobcat as it’s believed it will pass through the area on its own. The North Shore bobcat attracted plenty of attention on Sunday as multiple people posted pictures on social media of the cat wandering through the area, with sightings on McArthur Island and on Willow Street, in addition to the nearby Sherwood Drive. While native to B.C., bobcats and lynx rarely visit the North Shore neighbourhood, according to WildsafeBC. One way to tell the two species apart is by the markings on their tails. The tail of

a lynx is solid black at its tip, whereas a bobcat’s tail shows white, which appears to be the case with this cat, given the circulating footage. “It’s definitely got people very excited because it’s around in broad daylight and walking through people’s yards and crossing streets,” WildsafeBC provincial coordinator Vanessa Isnardy told KTW. “It’s a little bit unusual to see that kind of behaviour from a bobcat, for sure,” Lynx and bobcats are typically solitary animals living in forested areas where there’s more shelter and cover. “You wouldn’t find them in an urban environment,”

Isnardy said. It’s unclear what caused the animal to come out of its shell, but Isnardy said, anecdotally, unusual weather tends to bring out unusual animal behaviour. It’s been unseasonably snowy and cold in Kamloops recently for late October. Isnardy said bobcats typically feast on small mammals such as rabbits, hares and rodents, but can also take down larger prey. She said WildsafeBC recommends people keep their pet cats indoors and have all pets on leashes. She said people with livestock, such as chickens, should also take precautions.

Half of downtown businesses report losses during COVID-19: KCBIA JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

About half of the businesses in downtown Kamloops reported losses during the COVID-19 pandemic and about half remain operating below their usual staffing capacity, according to the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association. On Tuesday (Oct. 20), KCBIA executive director Carl DeSantis provided an update to city council on its support for the downtown business community amid the pandemic.

DeSantis noted nearly two-dozen events and programs were cancelled in the spring, summer and fall — events that would typically draw crowds to the area and have positive spinoffs for businesses, some of which have closed. Meanwhile, development in the area continues and other businesses have successfully pivoted. DeSantis said the KCBIA has worked with businesses to transition online and promote pickup/take away services. Questions remain, however, heading into colder months.

A patio program utilized by restaurants during the warmer months of the pandemic is set to expire at the end of October, with winter on the horizon. The program loosened restrictions to expand patios, allowing restaurants more space for patrons at a time when physical distancing is needed to prevent spread of the novel coronavirus. DeSantis said not only did restaurants benefit from the outdoor patios, but so did all downtown businesses. He said the area became “welcoming” and “comfortable” and received positive

feedback from customers. “Each of the businesses that participated in this program advised us that the patios helped their business,” DeSantis said. “Some suggested that the patios significantly helped and that patios made a huge difference in their revenues.” DeSantis noted discussions recently about adding patio heaters into the cooler months, but he has heard incurring additional expenses right now is “not the preferred option.” He said the program was the right one for the right time.

Push is on to keep Westsyde facility open TODD SULLIVAN

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

BY THE NUMBERS

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

Residents of Westsyde who want to see the Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre remain open past its planned closure in January are hoping their voices will be heard by the city. The pool was reopened in September after being closed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The current plan is to close the pool again once the Canada Games Aquatic Centre reopens after its multi-million-dollar roof and wall rehabilitation project is finished. Those who have enjoyed getting to use the Westsyde facility again are strongly opposed to its planned closure in the new year. “Hopefully, the city will listen to us and, certainly, the people of the community have spoken,” said Diane Kuchma, president of the Westsyde Community Development Society. With so many youth struggling to find ways to occupy their time during the pandemic, Kuchma asked, would there be any benefit in taking away even more recreation that is available to them? “We need to keep some of the things available to them so that they’re not just getting into mischief,” she said, noting the planned closure will occur during a time of year when potential outdoor activities are already reduced because of the weather. Karl Wolfe, in charge of youth engagement with the Westsyde Community Development Society, cited “bubbles” as a path forward. “Let’s look at the bubbles that are being created in sports,” Wolfe said.

680:

Number of people who have used the facility since it reopened on Sept. 8, not including clubs. 30:

Number of patrons permitted for family swims. 16:

Number of people admitted for Aquafit class. 18:

Number of people allowed for lap swimming. 24:

Number of people permitted to be in the gym. “The NBA did and hockey did these bubbles. So, Westsyde is a bubble. Let’s give them the options they may need down the road.” Hours at the Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre were recently extended following seasonal closure of the Brock outdoor pool. Any decisions about the future use of the Westsyde facility will be decided by Kamloops council. “We have put a business case together for 2021, which will be reviewed as part of the normal budgeting process,” said Andrew Smeaton, aquatics program supervisor for the City of Kamloops. “There’s also opportunities for community engagement in that process.”

With city council determined to head into 2021 with little to any increase in taxes, it means having to look at where cuts can be made, and Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre could certainly find itself affected by such cuts. Alongside increased maintenance costs with cleaning the pool facilities during the pandemic, there is also a likely reduction in revenue, as fewer users are allowed in the space at one time. There is also a reduction in what types of user groups and fitness programs can access the facility simultaneously. “Just like in other industries, you see that there’s public uncertainty, so people aren’t going to necessarily be using things the same way as they did in the past,” Smeaton said. “We’ve noticed a reduction in clients across all facilities just due to that uncertainty around COVID.” But Kuchma believes numbers at the Westsyde location will remain high. “I’m sure it will be well used to capacity of the numbers that they allow,” she said. “And those people that come will continue to come and spread the word. They’ll be ecstatic if it stays open.” The Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre has previously been shuttered for months — and years — at a time. Before the pandemic led to recreation centre closures earlier this year, the facility was already scheduled to be closed for a few months so its boilers and mechanical equipment could be upgraded. A problem with the building’s moisture barrier in the ceiling led to the facility closing for more than two years — from June 2015 to September 2017.

Social media selfie led to arrest of Kamloops man tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Police used a receipt and an Instagram selfie to link a Kamloops man to a loaded revolver found last month in an unlocked vehicle, alongside more than $1,700 in cash and two bags of drugs, a judge has been told. Steven Gardner is facing three firearms charges, along with one count of driving while prohibited and another alleging he drove while disqualified. Court heard police showed up at a Carson Crescent rental residence in North Kamloops on Sept. 13, looking for a potential witness to a murder that took place the previous day. On Sept. 12, 33-yearold Daniel Thomas Myles was stabbed near the Acadian Inn in downtown Kamloops and later died in Royal

Inland Hospital. James Dylan Sanford, 32, is charged with seconddegree murder. While approaching the Carson Crescent house, on Sept. 13, the two constables noticed a large quantity of cash and a visible handgun inside a parked car. The Mounties seized the gun — a loaded Smith and Wesson revolver — and impounded the car. A subsequent search of the Nissan Altima turned up $1,730 in cash, multiple boxes of ammunition, 52 grams

of suspected fentanyl, 20 grams of suspected crystal meth and 70 grams of an unknown white powder, court heard. Police are also alleged to have found a receipt in Gardner’s name from the Great Canadian Oil Change location on Lansdowne Street downtown. According to the Crown, the receipt was dated the previous day and listed Gardner’s address as the Carson Crescent rental. Mounties then went to the oil change garage and reviewed video surveillance, which showed a Nissan Altima driven by someone with a distinct tattoo on his arm, the Crown has alleged. Investigators compared the video footage to a selfie on Gardner’s Instagram page, matching it to a tattoo reading “Untouchable” on his left arm. Fingerprints on the barrel of the revolver

were preliminarily found to match those of Gardner, according to the Crown. The investigation progressed without Gardner’s arrest until an Oct. 16 shooting at the Hospitality Inn on West Columbia Street in Lower Sahali, after which the Altima — no longer impounded — was reported as potentially having been involved. Police later found the vehicle near a Chase home at which Gardner was arrested, court heard. He is not charged in connection with the shooting. Gardner is seeking bail in Kamloops provincial court, offering a $10,000 cash deposit. Dale Melville, his defence lawyer, said the Crown’s case is far from a slam dunk, noting the fingerprints lifted from the revolver have not been fully analyzed. “Without the fingerprint evidence, it would

Pandemic continues to impact airport traffic JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Travelling resource workers helped give Kamloops Airport a slight improvement on passenger counts over the summer months, but overall numbers continue to remain significantly down over last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Kamloops Airport third-quarter passenger statistics — reporting July through September — show an 84 per cent drop in passenger numbers compared to the same time last year. During those three months in 2020, slightly more than 14,000 passengers travelled through the airport, compared to just shy of 85,000 passengers across the same time period last year. Month-by-month, Kamloops Airport saw about 4,700 passengers in July, roughly 5,300 passengers in August and approximately 4,300 passengers in September. Airport managing director Ed Ratuski said early on in the pandemic passenger traffic was

down 97 per cent, which he said was consistent across the industry as everything came to a halt due to the global health crisis. Ratuski said the airport saw about a 15 per cent increase in passenger numbers over the summer. “The numbers grew largely because of resource traffic,” he said. “That’s people going up north to work and some leisure travel over the summer, where people felt it was safe to go see friends and family in Canada.” Leisure and business travel, however, continue to be slow. Six people (about half of the operations staff) remain laid off from the airport, which is operating at reduced capacity. The airport has two daily WestJet flights to Calgary, while Air Canada flies daily to Vancouver and Central Mountain Air flies thriceweekly to Prince George. With cold weather upon us, quarantine restrictions in place requiring Canadians to self-isolate for two weeks will mean more challenges at the airport

Vaccine time With influenza season approaching, vaccinations are now available. This year, amid the pandemic, Interior Health said the influenza vaccine is more important than ever. With similar symptoms to COVID-19, influenza is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious illness, hospitalization and death. According to Statistics Canada, in 2018, 8,511 people in the country died from influenza and pneumonia. Interior Health is urging everyone to schedule appointments for flu shots, noting that if influenza spreads rapidly in communities at the same time as COVID-19, it could overwhelm the health-care system and place the health of many at risk. Vaccine supply has started to arrive and Interior Health has already set up targeted clinics for high-risk vulnerable people. The health authority is also working with doctors, nurses, pharmacists and licensed nurse practitioners to ensure the widest distribution possible of the influenza vaccine. To find a provider near you, visit Immunize BC. Visit BCCDC 2020-2021 Seasonal Influenza Vaccine Eligibility for information on groups eligible for free flu vaccine. For more information about flu season and the flu shot in the Interior Health region visit: 2020-2021 Seasonal Influenza Campaign. The flu season typically begins in November. The last reported influenza outbreak in BC. was in March 2020, whereas at this time last year, there had been eight influenza outbreaks reported, including two in early October. The BCCDC said influenza activity through the Southern Hemisphere’s 2020 season was also exceptionally low.

through the winter. Ratuski said the industry is looking to the summer of 2021 for

any significant improvements. “It’s going to be probably a pretty sparse

winter in terms of any significant increases in activity,” Ratuski said. “Generally, if there’s

a vaccine in place, we’re through the second wave and then there is a pent-up travel demand,”

he said. “ There’s a lot of people that haven’t been able to see relatives.”

and recovering higher costs for installation of plots with grade beams, which is a concrete strip that allows upright memorial markers. Meanwhile, the city is also preparing for Hillside Cemetery on Notre Dame Drive in Southgate to reach capacity and the new plan accounts for contemporary trends in dying, with a shift toward cremation over traditional burial, along with green burials, family columbaria and scattering gardens. A concept plan has been drawn up for expansion west of Hillside Cemetery, which is estimated to provide inventory — including cremation plots, burial areas and scattering gardens — for 30 years. Bylaw amendments will also restrict transfer of a right of interment to immediate family members only.

annually until 2030. An audit determined rates in Kamloops to be significantly lower than other communities. An adult burial in Kamloops currently costs $3,470, compared to $4,300 in Prince George and $5,350 in Kelowna. The city’s goal is to cover cemetery costs via user fees and the planned increase will see the cost of a burial next year increase to about $4,350. By 2030, with increases above that of inflation and totalling more than 20 per cent, that same adult burial will cost another $1,000, or about $5,400. The city says pricing adjustments will improve the bottom line of cemetery operations by also making double-depth plots more financially attractive. It will also conserve land, offsetting increased labour costs to dig winter graves

OCT 3 NOV 50 -

Thompson Rivers University is planning to expand its campus to the west, with a new early childhood education centre said to be the first of its kind in Canada. Kamloops council has sent to a public hearing an application to rezone property at 1274 McGill Rd. Formerly the site of a Majestic Ginseng Products facility, the university purchased the property, with plans for expansion into the industrial area. It is currently zoned industrial and requires rezoning. According to the city, the university plans to consolidate its early education-related programs (early childhood education program and graduate studies program) currently located throughout the TRU campus, including the Cariboo Childcare Society day care. The property will include a day care that can accommodate 94 kids for staff, students — and the general public, if spots are available — including outdoor space for the day care. TRU plans to renovate the existing building already on the property. The plan will also create an additional entrance into the university, with a new road entering the campus. “They’re punching the road through to TRU Way through this property,” Eric Beach, the city’s planning and development supervisor, told KTW. Access will be restricted to control traffic, with only right-in, right-out entry. The centre will occupy most of the property,

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A Kamloops man who spent four days on the floor of his home after suffering injuries during a fall is recovering in hospital after being rescued by a police officer conducting a well-being check. Relatives of the man called Kamloops RCMP on Oct. 13 to report they hadn’t heard from him in some time and were concerned for his safety. According to Sgt. Darren Michels, a city Mountie was sent to the man’s home to check on him. “He attended the residence and knocked on the door, but there was no response,” Michels said. “He also checked with the neighbours and they confirmed the man lived next door, but they, too, had not seen the man for several days.” Michels said the officer was able to find a key to the house and he went inside, calling out for the man.

“He located the man lying on the floor in very grave condition,” Michels said. “The man indicated he had fallen four days prior and was not able to get up to help himself or call for assistance.” The man was taken by ambulance to Royal Inland Hospital, where he continues to recover. “This was a matter of a frontline RCMP officer conducting a very timely investigation and being in the right place at the right time to not only find this man, but to help him,” Michels said. “All too often, RCMP members are sadly subject to discovering a deceased person who hasn’t been heard from in some time, but, fortunately for this man, the investigator came at the right time. “This was an excellent investigation that had great results.” Michels said the man’s family was relieved to hear he was recovering.

Tribunal clears former cafe owner EMPLOYEE HAD ALLEGED SEXUAL HARASSMENT BY CO-WORKER KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has dismissed a complaint from a former employee against the owner of a now-closed Kamloops cafe, ruling the cafe owner did indeed reasonably respond to and investigate the complaint of sexual harassment. Jordynn Denness claimed co-worker Dima Kondratenko sexually harassed her and harassed her on the basis of her sexual orientation over the course of the two shifts in late October 2017. Denness claimed her employer, Kim Cecile, owner of PDK Cafe, which operated downtown, knew Kondratenko had previously sexually harassed others and said her complaint was not taken seriously. Kondratenko denied Denness’ allegations, while Cecile insisted all reasonable efforts were made to respond to and investigate the complaint. Cecile added that there was no previous evidence that Kondratenko had been accused of sexually harassing fellow employees. Denness had three witnesses testify on her behalf, while Cecile had 10 witnesses testify on her behalf. Tribunal member Beverly Froese sided with the testimony of Cecile and her witnesses. Froese also concluded that, based on the evidence in testimony, she found no evidence that Kondratenko had sexually harassed or threatened Denness. “Overall, I find Ms. Cecile and Mr. Kondratenko to be credible and testified sincerely and to the best of their recollection about the events at issue,” Froese said in her 62-page decision, which was released on Oct. 21. “There were inconsistencies and discrepancies in their evidence … but in general, I prefer the evidence of the respondents and their witnesses.” She added: “I accept that Ms. Denness’ interactions with Mr. Kondratenko made

her uncomfortable. She told more than one person she found him to be ‘creepy’ and she did not want to work with him. However, I find Mr. Kondratenko’s evidence regarding these allegations to be credible. I prefer his evidence about what happened when he and Ms. Denness worked together because it included details and context to their conversations that, overall, I find lacking in Ms. Denness’ evidence.” Froese found Denness’ evidence in many of her allegations against Kondratenko not reliable because “her versions changed in material ways and her negative interpretations of what occurred are not reasonably supported by the evidence. I also find that much of what is underlying Ms. Denness’ evidence regarding how her employer responded to her complaint against Mr. Kondratenko are beliefs grounded in assumptions she made that, based on the evidence presented, are not true.” Froese also noted inconsistencies in what Denness told her roommate, WorkSafeBC and the RCMP. Froese highlighted a Facebook message log between Denness and Cecile less than a week after the two dates on which Denness claimed to have been sexually harassed at work. Denness: “Hi Kim, I would really like to speak with you in person about this issue.” Cecile: “Hi Jordynn. Sorry I just saw all these messages. For some reason when I was away I was getting notifications but couldn’t open anything. Would you want to meet somewhere tomorrow and speak in person. I am horrified to have read this.” Denness: “No problem, i know Facebook isn’t the best form of communication! Tomorrow would be great, are you available at noon” Cecile: “This is not acceptable at all and will be dealt with. I am speechless.” Denness: “Thank you I appreciate that” Cecile: “Absolutely. Want to meet at Starbucks or for lunch somewhere.

Somewhere where you will have some privacy and feel comfortable talking” Denness: “We could meet at Starbucks on Columbia and McGill if that works for you” Cecile: “Absolutely” “Ms. Cecile handled Ms. Denness’ complaint with sensitivity as evidenced by her response to Ms. Denness’ Facebook messages and the measures she took to put Ms. Denness at ease when they met at Starbucks,” Froese said. “I find Ms. Cecile’s evidence that she would not tolerate sexual harassment in the workplace or excuse sexual harassment on the grounds of cultural differences or a language barrier to be credible. In my view, Ms. Cecile’s testimony about her own experiences with sexual harassment in the workplace and sexual violence and her efforts to put Ms. Denness at ease and understand where she might be coming from was emotional, compelling and genuine.” Froese denied Cecile’s application for costs against Denness. Weeks after her two shifts with Kondratenko, Denness sent a letter to the editor of KTW. After much discussion surrounding legalities of publishing such allegations, KTW heavily edited the letter and published it as an example of a person’s experience in the MeToo movement. The letter was published in print and online, but edited so it did not identify the author by name or gender, did not identify the person the author accused and did not identify the business at which the alleged sexual harassment took place. Shortly thereafter, contrary to the agreement she had with KTW, Denness linked to the letter on her social media pages, naming PDK Cafe and precipitating a torrent of criticism of the cafe from online commenters. The cafe opened in December 2014 and closed in August 2018. On January 23, 2018, WorkSafe denied Ms. Denness’ claim of workplace bullying and harassment.

SEYMOUR STREET

A new kind of market is coming to Kamloops, organized by a relatively new resident of the city following the success of a punk rock flea market in Ontario. Jess Santos moved to Kamloops two years ago and brought her love of craft markets with her. She met a few artists and decided to build on the success of a market she operated in Ontario. Santos put the call out and discovered a number of willing vendors with goods that fit her misfit theme. The date for the first Misfit Night Market in March came and went as the pandemic took hold, but as everyone figured out how events and shopping could continue, the event got

a new date. “Now, with winter coming, we’re doing a tweaked version of it,” Santos said. The market will run this Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Brautigan Library, 443 Tranquille Rd. That location is the former Moustache and Go, and a sponsored spot, offered up by Mitch Forgie of Red Beard Cafe. Rather than vendors manning booths themselves, Santos will act as merchant on their behalf, operating the market as a store and taking payment for items. Vendors will still receive 100 per cent of the funds for their sale, while other costs taken on by Santos are being covered by one-time fees. A number of other COVID-19 precautions will be in place. Only Santos will be in

the store, plus one or two others at the door, limiting the number of shoppers at any given time. Masks will be required and contactless payment by card will be preferred. Santos created the market as a place to sell wares for artists, creators and makers with an alternative slant. “Everything has a little bit of a goth or weird vibe,” Santos said. Asked for examples of artists at the event, Santos mentioned James Henry, a trapper from near Kamloops who “uses all of the pieces from what he does,” among other artists using ethical or reclaimed bones to create their goods. She also mentioned a few artists who are particularly on theme for the Oct. 30 event — those who dabble in witchcraft. But there’s no bad juju, she said.

These artists are selling things like candles, decorative jars, home decor and jewelry. In all, 11 vendors are listed for the sale, but there is a host of others who weren’t included due to size limitations for this event. Santos said she received more than 70 applications, many of whom she’d like to include in the next sale, should this one be successful. A number of vendors have been featured on the market’s Instagram and Facebook pages leading up to the event and Santos hopes those who aren’t up for inperson shopping can instead go to the artists directly, should something catch their eye. For more information on artists and vendors, find the Misfit Night Market pages on social media.

SD73 teacher reinstatement in hands of arbitrator MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER AWAITS ANSWER FOR POSSIBLE RETURN TO CLASSROOM FOLLOWING DECISION ON SEXUAL MISCONDUCT COMPLAINT MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops-Thompson school district is filing an appeal after an arbitrator ruled a teacher who was fired after he kissed a former student must be reinstated. Brett Edward Wasylik, who taught at Brock Middle School, was dismissed on Aug. 23, 2019 for lying during an internal investigation into the 17-year-old female student’s sexual miscon-

duct complaint, which related to an incident that took place while she was working a shift at a local restaurant on Nov. 12, 2016. Wasylik denied allegations of inappropriate comments and contact toward the student when confronted by the school district in 2016, but later admitted to some of them in a 2019 consent resolution agreement with the Teacher Regulation Branch. In 2016, after the girl’s parents reported the misconduct, an investigator questioned both individuals, who gave

conflicting accounts. The student said Wasylik had approached her several times during her shift, hugged her, placed his hands on her lower back and kissed her on the neck. She said he made comments such as “You’re so hot; just like you were in Grade 9” and that he also asked her to have a drink with him after her shift. She said when she advised that she was only 17, Wasylik allegedly responded, “Can you pretend you are 30 tonight?” On Dec. 6, 2016, the school district reported the incident to

the Commissioner for Teacher Regulation Branch and, after learning of Wasylik’s admissions in the consent resolution, fired him for his dishonesty, noting the seriousness of the allegations and that the district had no confidence in his trustworthiness as a teacher. The firing came a couple of weeks after multiple news stories reporting on the consent resolution were published. Arbitrator Ken Saunders handed down the decision to reinstate Wasylik this past August, ruling

on a wrongful dismissal claim from the Kamloops-Thompson Teachers’ Association. Saunders found that terminating Wasylik’s employment violated the double jeopardy rule of arbitration law that states an employer may not impose more than one penalty for the same offence. In a statement issued last week, the school district said the decision has been appealed, but no decision has yet been rendered. The school district added that Wasylik is not currently teaching.

athaniel Martin is sporting a new and somewhat unique look as he goes about his dayto-day routines in Kamloops. His fashion sense was crafted by his six-year-old daughter, Abrielle, who trimmed his hair on Oct. 10 — in an attempt to raise money for and awareness of domestic-violence and mental-health programs. When the country went into pandemic lockdown mode earlier this year, Martin became concerned about what that might mean for people’s mental health. And, as restrictions continued through the summer and fall, he began to notice medical journals taking note of similar concerns. “When the numbers come in and you see that there’s going to be an increase in

overdose deaths, an increase in domestic violence, suicides, I really hope it’s all worth it, the way we’re doing it,” he said. Martin is quick to note he does believe in the danger of the novel coronavirus and does agree with wearing a mask and staying home and adhering to safety protocols as much as possible. But he also acknowledges that those with many local organizations are working harder with less money because of the pandemic. Because of that, Martin is raising money for those organizations through a few different campaigns. The first is a GoFundMe endeavour online at ca.gofundme.com/f/cutober-2020, which runs until the end of October. It sees him sporting his new hairdo for one minute for every dollar raised. The haircut has also helped raise awareness about the importance of the organizations as, Martin explained, it can be quite

the conversation starter. He has also organized a fundraiser through Highland Valley Copper, where he works, with money there taken as a payroll deduction from staff and donated to the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre and the Canadian Mental Health Association. Martin is expecting to raise somewhere in the area of $1,000 from each of the two campaigns. Martin is no stranger to helping his community. Following CUTober, he’ll be helping with a pumpkin disposal drive in Sahali, in which volunteers will collect and dispose of pumpkins on Sunday, Nov. 1, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. He is also hoping he can get more men involved with CUTober in the years to come. “I would love it if I could find some dads that would love to get their haircuts done by their children,” he said. “It would be a great Kamloops initiative.”

City couple donates $250,000 to hospital KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A Kamloops couple celebrated their wedding anniversary by giving back to the community. James and Jessie Fedorak marked their 60th wedding anniversary on Oct. 22 with a $250,000 donation from their charity to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation. The money will be used in support of a new operating room in the new patient-care tower, which is scheduled to open in summer of 2022. James and Jessie’s donations to the Royal Inland Foundation over the years have resulted in total contributions of more than $500,000. “We stepped up our contribution amount after we attended a meeting requesting funds for a ninestation microscope,” James said in a press release. The piece of equipment, which enables earlier detection of

breast cancer, is also capable of examining data from regional hospitals, in addition to RIH. “To us, this emphasized how important it is to keep up with new technology,” James said. “The additional funds that we decided to donate allowed us, through the Foundation, to obtain the latest and greatest equipment. The new patient-care tower means that there is extra demand for new equipment.” The Fedoraks are longtime supporters of the hospital foundation and well-known educators and philanthropists in the community. The couple met and married in 1960 and moved to Kamloops (Jessie’s hometown) from Edmonton in 1971. James served as dean of continuing education and community services at Cariboo College (now Thompson Rivers

University) for 10 years before moving to the Ministry of Forests, where he worked for 14 years before retiring. During that time, Jessie worked as a substitute teacher. The couple has one daughter, Teressa, who also works at Thompson Rivers University as an educator. James has served on many community and service boards and is currently board advisor to the Kamloops Society of Alcohol and Drug Services’ Phoenix Centre. In addition to community volunteer work, James and Jessie enjoy square dancing, round dancing and ballroom dancing. “James and Jessie Fedorak have been friends of the foundation since the 1980s,” RIH Foundation CEO Heidi Coleman said. “We cannot thank them enough for their incredible support, which has positively impacted many areas of the hospital.”

KAMLOOPS ART PAGE

W

elcome to the weekly Kamloops Art Page. With the COVID-19 pandemic upending society — socially and economically and dominating news for the foreseeable future — we understand pandemic fatigue can set in for even the most ardent followers of current events. While continuing to cover all pandemic and non-pandemic-related news, KTW has also worked hard at featuring positive stories from the crisis, tales that capture the essence of humanity, be it volunteers sewing thousands of masks for health-care workers or musicians offering up weekly free concerts online. This page is an attempt by KTW to bring some colour into the lives of our readers via

artwork created locally. We hope to, on a weekly basis, use this page to showcase works by various Kamloops artists, with between one and three pieces displayed. Thanks for reading Kamloops This Week and we hope this page can help ease the stress of this uncertain era in which we are living. Email editor@kamloopsthisweek.com if you have any questions or suggestions relating to this page.

Email editor@kamloopsthisweek.com if you have submissions for Kamloops Art Page. SWEET DREAMS, BY GABRIELLE CHASE, LLOYD GEORGE ELEMENTARY, GRADE 6 This painting is of a cat, about to fall asleep from the charm of the summer breeze. I was sitting in my room, hoping that my first art piece would be good enough, when I noticed my black cat in the same position as my second painting. That’s how the idea hit me. I like to do art because it’s very calming.

DRAGON STORM, BY HALEY DOUGLAS ARTHUR STEVENSON ELEMENTARY, GRADE 7 My piece is of a dragon in a harsh, snowy windstorm. My inspiration for this piece was driven by my love for dragons. The sight you see in the drawing is an image I remember from a dream that I had repeatedly. This image is stuck in my head because I had this dream over and over again so many times, I do not know when it stopped repeating.

BEAST OF THE SEAS, BY SAMANTHA PARLBY KAY BINGHAM ELEMENTARY, GRADE 6 I love to make artwork because I’ve always been interested in art. I was inspired to create this artwork by my friends. They always encourage me to be my best. I changed my approach a little ways into drawing the serpent. I was originally going to draw the serpent as a dragon, but thought it would be better as a different mythical creature.

We’re here for you.

GUESS WHO?

HERMAN

by Jim Unger

I am a singer born in California on October 25, 1984. As a child, I was only allowed to listen to gospel music because my parents were pastors. Eventually I branched out and gained fame as a pop singer. My 2010 album featured five songs that topped the charts.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, rest and relax now because it may be a bumpy ride over the next few days. Rely on your energy reserves to make it through. Things will calm down soon enough.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, allow friends to lavish attention on you. You deserve a little more time in the limelight because of all the hard work you have been putting in.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, by making yourself more vulnerable, you can show others how you are compassionate and in tune with your softer side. This may help create alliances.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, try a new and interesting hobby that aligns with your current interests. Don’t worry if it has nothing to do with your profession. It’s okay to branch out.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Make some changes to your wellness routine, Virgo. Changes could help you feel better in your daily life and set the course for many positive things in the future.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 It is always good knowing someone has your back, Virgo. This can be a best friend, a romantic partner, a family member, or even a colleague. It is a relief to have support.

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

Good stuff all the time.

OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 3, 2020 LIBRA

- Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, a pleasant routine is essential for improving your mood and outlook. It’s easier to handle stressful situations when you make smart choices.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22 There are many things happening around you, and it is best to focus on the positives even in the most hectic times. Immerse yourself in your favorite hobbies.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 You are a natural leader who prefers overseeing projects to getting your hands dirty. But to strengthen authority, you sometimes have to handle some of the nuts and bolts.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Now is the time to increase your income rather than the pressure on you. That means thinking outside the box in terms of additional work. Consider self-employment.

PISCES

Being in tune with your feelings is a very good thing this week, Sagittarius. It can help you focus on goals that will make you happy and avoid situations that make you upset.

Give me golf clubs, fresh air, and a beautiful partner, and you can keep the clubs and the fresh air.

- Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, most of the time you like making your contributions from the background. But lately you are ready to step into the spotlight.

HISTORY 778-471-7533 or email editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Dig It: What archaeologists do and don’t do

A local or provincial government agency review of a developer’s proposed project may trigger the need to undertake an archaeological assessment. The archaeologist conducts an assessment to determine if documented or yet-to-be identified archaeological sites may be altered by the proposed project and provide guidance to the developer, per guidelines associated with the Heritage Conservation Act.

proceeding further. Just like when a mechanic finds something unexpected on your vehicle when you take it in for a brake job and must get your approval to repair it, the scope and cost of archaeological assessments are subject to modification based on what we encounter during fieldwork. Further, the archaeologist works with the client to develop strategies to address the presence of archaeological sites in the proposed project area once the assessment is complete. This includes looking for options to avoid or reduce impacts to sites through design modifications. If the client does not wish to modify the design, then a determination is made of how much of the site will be impacted and the amount of archaeological work that would be necessary to address it. The archaeologists will provide input to the client on the regulatory requirements, work scope, general schedule and cost implications associated with the options. Ultimately, it is the client who decides if the options presented are viable based on their schedule or budget, public and stakeholder concerns and/or other regulatory requirements. Throughout this process, the archaeologist does not tell a developer they cannot proceed with a project. However, a developer may decide their project is not viable to pursue based on those various constraints.

was having a conversation with a co-worker about comments and questions we receive from the public when they find out we are archaeologists. We always try to provide clarification, generate interest in archaeology and educate people about the aims of cultural resource management. However, one comment that is often difficult to address is, “The archaeologist shut down my project.” I’ve heard this statement a number of times and thought it might be a useful exercise to walk through the assessment and decision-making process to create awareness of what archaeologists do and what they don’t do when it comes to a developer completing a project. A local or provincial government agency review of a developer’s proposed project may trigger the need to undertake an archaeological assessment. The archaeologist conducts an assessment to determine if documented or yet-to-be identified archaeological sites may be altered by the proposed project and provide guidance to the developer, per guidelines associated with the Heritage Conservation Act. When archaeologists are engaged to conduct an assessment, we provide the client with an initial, wellscoped work plan and budget based on a number of variables. We make efforts to discuss these variables with the client because no two projects are the same. We need to know the type and dimensions of the proposed impacts, which can vary greatly (e.g., residential construction versus pipeline construction). Understanding the project location allows us to determine the logistics required for the

Jesus said: ‘The hour is come’

L

et’s look at three times the Lord Jesus said the words, “The hour has come.” All three times took place in the last week leading up to the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for our sins. Sometimes people say, regarding an event they are anticipating, “This will be our finest hour.” Each time Jesus used these words, he was referring to his time of suffering at the hands of men and his sacrifice and death on the cross. He did not call it his finest hour, but he came from Heaven to Earth for this purpose of giving his life for our sins. All three times are accompanied by prayer of Jesus, which is an indication of the consistent and unbroken fellowship of Jesus with his father. In two of the three times, Jesus refers to glory or honour being the result of “The Hour” that had come. In addition, in two of the times he spoke

of being troubled about this time of suffering and death he was going to endure. In the Bible, in John 12:23, Jesus said, “The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.” Chapter 12 starts by stating it was six days before the Passover. Further down the chapter, in verse 12, it says, “on the next day” — or five days before the Passover. The suffering on the cross was before the Lord. Jesus spoke of a corn of wheat falling into the ground and dying and the result of that is a new plant with life.

Verse 27 shows us that Jesus knew all about what was ahead for him in suffering and death on the cross in that he spoke of being troubled. It was this that was meant by him saying, “for this cause came I unto this hour.” The prayer of Jesus that is connected to this is found in verse 28, where Jesus prays, “Father, glorify Thy name.” So we can see that both the Father and the Son are glorified as the result of the work of Jesus on the cross. Verse 32 tells us it is God’s desire for all people to be drawn to the one who was lifted up on the cross as Saviour and Lord. Verse 33 says, “this he said signifying what death he should die.” In John 17:1, when Jesus was on his way to the Garden of Gethsemane, he stopped at some point and prayed what is recorded in chapter 17. The timing of this was in the night that he would soon be

taken before the high priest. He started in his prayer by addressing the father and saying, “Father, the hour is come; glorify thy son, that thy Son also may glorify thee.” Once again, in connection with the hour, is the glory of the Father and the glory of the Son being the result. This prayer of Jesus is the longest recorded prayer he prayed. There are times when it says that he had prayed long into the night, but those prayers are not recorded for us to read. In this prayer, Jesus goes all the way back into eternity past as he speaks of being with the Father before the world was or existed. He prayed about the present needs of his disciples and of requests for the future blessing of the disciples. In Mark 14:41, we read that Jesus spoke to his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane about the hour that

was come. In the garden, he prayed three times, being in agony concerning what lay ahead for him. As he anticipated the cross and all that it involved, he was greatly troubled. He said to his disciples in verse 34, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death.” “The hour is come” were his words. There was no turning back, but rather a willingness to die under the load of our sins. Jesus loves us and was willing to go through that time of suffering and death.

Pope backs same sex civil unions DAVID CRARY AND ELANA SCHOR

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LGBTQ Catholics and their allies in the U.S. welcomed Pope Francis’ endorsement of same-sex civil unions, the first time he’s done so as pontiff, while some prominent members including a bishop said Wednesday that he was blatantly contradicting church teaching. Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, was one of the first conservative Catholic leaders to go public with criticism. “The Pope’s statement clearly contradicts what has been the long-standing teaching of the Church about same-sex unions,’’ Tobin said in a statement. “The Church cannot support the acceptance of objectively immoral relationships.’’ In contrast, Francis DeBernardo of New Ways Ministry, which represents LGBTQ Catholics, hailed the pope’s comments as a “historic’’ shift for a church that has a record of persecuting gays. “It is no overstatement to say that with this statement not only has the pope protected LGBTQ couples and families, but he also will save many LGBTQ lives,’’ DeBernardo said. The pope’s comments came midway through a feature-length documentary, Francesco, that premiered recently at the Rome Film Festival. “Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God,’’ Francis says in the film. “You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.’’ The comment came in the final lap of a U.S. election campaign in which both President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden have avidly courted Catholic voters. It’s not yet clear whether it could indirectly benefit Biden, whose team has run ads spotlighting his lifelong Catholicism, but some liberal-leaning faith advocates saw plenty of shared values to highlight with Francis’ message of inclusion. “Pope Francis’ words will highlight the inclusive, accepting essence of Christianity that so many people care about,’’ said Guthrie Graves-Fitzsimmons, a fellow with the faith initiative at the liberal Center for American Progress think-tank . “The way conservative Christians distort this message of love and justice that Jesus proclaimed’ can have an alienating effect,” he said.

am all a-shiver. It’s late October — the time of year when spirits lurk in lonely alleyways, mouldering graveyards and ruined mansions. Along with other seekers after the macabre, I listen to a man wearing a flowing cloak, his eyes shadowed under the brim of a top hat. His name, appropriately, is Jonathan Black, and he will lead us by the light of his lantern through the foggy gloom of this very dark and stormy night in Old Quebec City to revisit scenes of bizarre murders, executions and torture. Umbrellas aloft against a chilly drizzle, we stand in historic Place Royal, which Mr. Black tells us had been the scene of grisly occurrences as far back as the 1700s. “Murderers and thieves swung by the neck here,” he intones, “and this is where a ruthless hangman even went so far as to execute his own wife.” A flash of lightning followed by a crackle of thunder adds a fine touch of melodrama to his story. We huddle a little closer together when we re-group alongside the mist-shrouded St. Lawrence River. According to our guide, we are now looking at a scene of terrible tragedy — the sinking of The Empress of Ireland, which went down on a foggy night such as this one. “But it was no ordinary fog,” Mr. Black says ominously. “Because no sooner had the ship sunk into the depths of the river, when the mists cleared away completely. It was a curse placed on the head of Captain Kendall, by that notorious English murderer, Dr. Crippen.” According to the story, Crippen, arrested and handed over to the police by Kendall, at this very spot, had glared at the captain and

spewed, “You sir shall pay for this treachery.” As we continue our tour, the rain turns torrential and a howling wind drives icy rivulets down my back. Although it is reputed to be one of the most haunted buildings in Quebec, I’m relieved to take refuge in the dimly lit, but mercifully dry Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. We don’t meet the ghostly

narcoleptic woman who was buried alive here, nor the poor wraith who moans in grief over her dead baby, but the tales are eerie enough for me to avoid peering too closely into the shadowy corners of the naves. A few days later, I go in search of the spectral inhabitants of Old Montreal. As it turns out they are a far more aggressive bunch than those lurking in Quebec city.

I join a group on a New France, Ghost Hunt Walk and our first “apparition” lurches out of the darkness near Place Jacques Cartier. She is a very drunken Mary Gallagher, brandishing a wine bottle in one hand, and peering closely with unnerving intensity at each of us in turn. Her eyes are on fire and she has a bloody gash across her neck. Mary’s murder was gory. She,

and her friend Susan, were entertaining a gorgeous-looking Irish guy, Michael Flanagan, in Susan’s apartment. All three had drained several bottles of booze, when Susan, enraged by his attentions to Mary, picked up an axe and in a fit of jealousy, hacked her girlfriend to death. On hearing this, a young girl standing near me, utters little twittering sounds and shrinks in horror against her boyfriend. She is even more aghast at our next ghost. He is Pierre Lefebvre who died back in 1735 as a result of vicious torture in the hands of an arbitrary judicial system in New France. Lefebvre glares at us, hisses and screams with fury while recounting the injustice of life. This just about causes the young visitor, to pass out in terror, and her boyfriend smiles at us sheepishly while laying a reassuring arm around her shoulders. As we file out hurriedly to our next appointment, Lefebvre follows us, yelling and shaking his fist. Fortunately, our last two phantoms are much more amiable characters. Paul Chomedey, Sieur de Maisonneuve, the co-founder of the city of Montreal, is a harmless braggart; Nicholas Vallières, an easy-going soul, was a go-between the fur trading colonists and the Iroquois Indians in the 17th century. Leaving the undead to their own devices, we return to Place Jacques Cartier, where the living are enjoying a brisk Saturday night. At 10 o’clock the place is buzzing with street musicians, lovers strolling hand in hand and sounds of merriment floating out from night-clubs. I step into a pub where the only spirits I encounter are those poured out of a bottle. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper article syndicate.

UVU ATHLETICS Trey Newman in action for the Utah Valley University Wolverines.

NorthPaws ink catcher Newman, first recruit in franchise history The Kamloops NorthPaws’ first signee has Major League Baseball pedigree. Trey Newman, a 20-year-old catcher for the NCAA Division 1 Utah Valley University Wolverines, will join the West Coast League expansion franchise for its inaugural season in 2021. Newman’s grandfather, Jeff, caught for the Oakland Athletics and Boston Red Sox during his nine-year MLB career. His uncle, Ryan Newman, is a minor league manager for the Chicago White Sox. “He has everything you look for in somebody you’re going to have behind the plate,” said NorthPaws’ head coach Cole Armstrong, a catcher during his 10-year Minor League Baseball career. “He’s really good defensively. He can really catch and throw the ball and he works great with the pitching staff.” Armstrong, who worked for the White Sox in player development, coaching and managing roles from 2014 to 2019, has experience working with Newman, including during a stint in the Arizona Collegiate Wood Bat League. “The amount that he cares is crazy,” Newman, from Phoenix, said in the press release. “He put in more hours than anybody in the player development side of it. “That’s a guy that’s been in baseball a really long time. He’s been through it and he’s going to have the players’ best interest in mind. He’s a great guy to play for.” The WCL, founded in 2005, is a collegiate summer wood-bat league that features 15 teams representing Oregon, Washington State, B.C. and Alberta.

TW reached out to four football aficionados to pick their brains on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting pigskin’s plight in B.C. at the club, community and high school levels. Among interviewees were TSN broadcaster Farhan Lalji, a longtime high school football coach and organizer, Kamloops Sports Hall of Famer and former CFLer Brad Yamaoka, who started his own standalone club squad, senior varsity South Kamloops Titans’ head coach JP Lancaster and Kamloops Community Football Society president William Neville. On Aug. 24, viaSport, the B.C. government’s delivery agency for sport, entered Phase 3 of its Return to Sport Guidelines, which allow for modified games and matches at the club level, along with league play and competition within cohorts. B.C. School Sports entered Phase 2 of its Return to School Sport Plan on Sept. 10. Limitations imposed by the Ministry of Education and its Restart Education Plan do not allow for football game play. Non-contact practices are permitted.

THE MORAL QUESTION Many in the high school camp are upset the province is allowing club football to go ahead. They see hypocrisy and holes in the logic. That makes for good discussion, as does this question: Should kids and teenagers be engaging at all in team sports activities during the pandemic? “Yes. We should [be playing],” said Lalji, who

is on B.C. High School Football’s board of directors and sits on its return-to-play committee. “It matters. Unless you can show me how playing amateur sports has completely spiked our numbers. Then we can have a different conversation. I really think this all comes down to optics and liability. It doesn’t come down to health and safety. Cohorts, primarily, are

not about safety. They’re about contact tracing.” Lancaster is gutted for his Titans, including the Grade 12s who will miss out on opportunities to chase university scholarships if the season is cancelled. He is among those who feel the province’s high-school stiff-arm doesn’t add up if club sports are free to operate. “But it’s really tough to say, morally, if kids competing right now is the right thing,” said Lancaster, noting his Titans were poised for a win-now season. “[Provincial Health Officer Dr.] Bonnie Henry said the other day we’re in our second wave and the numbers are rising. I want to do what we can to keep the program going, but I don’t want it to be anything that jeopardizes health and safety.” A few months ago, Yamaoka decided it was time to get his 15-yearold son, Kai, off the couch. Football training began and Kai’s friends soon joined boot camp, with Yamaoka adapting to provincial virus guidelines as they evolved. The gridiron gang, composed of players in grades 8 through 11, grew to about 25 players and twice played exhibition games against a Vernon community football club. Yamaoka is OK with the province’s approach at the high school level. See LALJI, A42

Stankoven backs himself to be “A” player MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Logan Stankoven does not need extra motivation. The 17-year-old forward’s draft year has been partially ransacked and he wants nothing more than to return to the ice with his Kamloops Blazers on Jan. 8, when the WHL is aiming to begin its delayed season amid the pandemic. NHL Central Scouting stoked an already burning fire on Tuesday (Oct. 27) by giving Stankoven a “B” rating on its players to watch list, projecting he will be selected in either Round 2 or Round 3 of the 2021 NHL Draft. “I don’t like to be a cocky human being, but having that confidence and swagger that I am good enough to potentially be a firstrounder or an A-rated prospect is something

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Logan Stankoven (left) of the Kamloops Blazers speaks to a Peter Puck participant on Friday at Valleyview Arena.

I really strive toward,” said Stankoven, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound Kamloops product who attends Valleyview secondary. “That just brings out the hunger in me and makes me want to prove myself to, hopefully, move up in those

rankings and just skyrocket.” Stankoven blasted off in the second half of the 2019-2020 season, tallying 18 goals in 30 games after the Christmas break. The diminutive rightshot centre finished the campaign with

48 points in 59 games and was named Western Conference rookie of the year. “Obviously, it’s a big honour to be on the Central Scouting

list, but I think I have confidence in myself that I’m able to be with some of those top prospects,” Stankoven said, noting he is pleased to see league

play taking place in Europe, the U.S. and Quebec. “It’s too bad we won’t be able to have a full season, but it’s out of our control,” he said. “The main thing is to stay positive and, hopefully, we’ll have enough games to prove ourselves as a team and, for myself, individually.” Blazers’ star forward Connor Zary was pegged with a “B” rating in October 2019. He finished that month with a league-leading 21 points, good enough for WHL player of the month status, and was upgraded to an “A” prospect. The Calgary Flames picked Zary 24th overall in Round 1 of this year’s NHL Draft. “Zary was in the exact same spot last year,” said Stankoven, who the Blazers

nabbed fifth overall in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft. “He really used that as motivation and that’s something I want to do, as well, to prove myself and show them who I am as a player and person.” Caedan Bankier is the only other Blazer who cracked the list. NHL Central Scouting gave the 17-year-old forward a “C” rating, projecting he will be picked in either Round 4, Round 5 or Round 6 of the 2021 NHL Draft. “It’s a huge honour and it’s super exciting,” said Bankier, who the Blazers picked in Round 3 of the 2018 bantam draft. “It’s good to see Stanks on it, as well.” Bankier, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound left shot from Surrey, racked up seven goals and 20 points in 55 games last season.

LALJI : HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS PAYING PRICE FOR PROVINCIAL POLITICS From A40

“Honestly, I don’t think any high school sports are going to happen at this point,” said Yamaoka, whose Kamloops club spanked Vernon 44-14 earlier this month in their first meeting. “U Sports cancelled all winter sports last week. We are going into more of a flu season and I’m kind of happy we’re going to be done this [past] weekend. I think community football is planning on going to the end of November. When flu season hits and some of these kids start getting flu, the mess that’s going to create with testing and tracing, it will likely get ugly. “Not necessarily that there’s going to be a ton of COVID cases, but if you catch the flu, you won’t know if it’s COVID, you won’t know it’s flu. You just won’t have a clue.” Kamloops Community Football registration numbers are down, with about 65 participants in total on three teams — atom (ages 7, 8 and 9), peewee (10, 11) and junior bantam (12, 13). “The important thing for us was just to be able to play,” Neville said, noting there were more than 100 registrants last season. “The numbers didn’t matter. We just wanted to figure out a way to get kids active and get them out on the field, being outside playing where you have space. It’s been really good for the kids.” Neville said Kamloops Community Football has followed safety guidelines mandated by the B.C. Provincial Football Association, which had its return-to-play plan approved by viaSport. “Everything has changed,” Neville said. “Absolutely everything.” HIGH SCHOOL ANGST Lalji said provincial politics is partly to blame for Grade 12 football players being robbed of university scholarships. “Now you’ve got a provincial government who said they would re-visit it mid-fall, but now are in the midst of an election, so they’re not interested in this,” said Lalji, noting at-risk youth tied to sports

only through high school programs have been negatively impacted. “I’ve had conversations with university coaches already. They’re telling me, ‘We don’t have enough room for your guy. Normally, we bring in 25 to 30 guys on scholarship. We’re only bringing in 15 this year.’ I’ve had that with at least five different CIS [U Sports] football coaches. These other kids [university seniors] got an extra year, so they’re [Grade 12s] taking it on both ends.” Last season, there was only one senior varsity high school football team in Kamloops, the Titans. The once-proud Westsyde Blue Wave program was aiming to restart this year, but momentum has been hindered by the pandemic. “The big frustration for anyone on the high school side is the discrepancy between club and community and why they’re able to compete and we’re not,” Lancaster said. “There is the liability side, which I can understand, but just because you’re registered with a community club team under viaSport, that’s not a defence shield against COVID.” Yamaoka coached the junior varsity Titans last year, a strong crop that includes his son. The team, which reached the provincial semifinal in 2019, was among favourites for gold in 2020. “We probably had on that team four kids who could have made the U16 provincial

team,” Yamaoka said. “But I get it. I do. “And I keep telling people — the key words in high school sports are high school. It’s connected to the provincial education ministry. They have to do everything they can to squash the virus or any transmission of the virus. “I go pick up my son from school. There is not a lot of social distancing happening. I think that’s the same for any school.” The club team Yamaoka formed includes players from high schools across the city. “There are positives that came out of it,” Yamaoka said. “We’ve had time to work on things with kids we may not have necessarily have had time with. “We don’t have to worry about jamming systems down their throat.” The Kamloops Community Football Society wanted to field a 14- and 15-year-old bantam team this year, but numbers were too short. “If community football was able to get a bantam team together, then we would have put a bantam team together with the group of guys I had,” said Yamaoka, whose club team formed before community football was green-lighted by the province. “We could have totally played them.” Did Yamaoka’s club hurt KCF’s chances of fielding a bantam team? “That’s a tough one,” Neville said. “I think there is space for both high school and community, especially

with the amount of schools that now do not have high school ball. We need to try to figure out how to work together on that. We’re not there yet. We’re working on it.” Lalji’s 17-year stint as head coach of the senior varsity New Westminster Hyacks and 31-year tenure coaching in the B.C. High School Football ranks ended after the 20192020 campaign. He questions the cohort system and whether team sports are outbreak lightning rods. “I love these kids. I still talk to the players I had last year regularly,” said Lalji, who is this season coaching his 12-year-old son’s youth football team. “Many of them comment on my son’s games and you can just tell they’re the kids on the outside of the glass looking in, the kids who didn’t get their gifts at Christmas watching everybody else get their gifts. “I’m not putting any of those things above the pandemic, but our Provincial Health Officer, who has been widely praised for her handling of the pandemic, has said there is a safe way to do this, so it should apply.” The national media man has concerns about the macro impact of losing the high school sports season. “It can’t have a positive effect on any school sport, right?” he said. “You run the risk of privatizing sport. When you’ve got a local community association, that’s fine. But you look at a sport like basketball, which is on the verge of being taken over by the club system to begin with. That would be devastating.” With winter fast approaching, the 11th hour for a fall high school football season has likely passed. “It’s unfortunate it’s evolved into an uneven playing field,” Lancaster said. “We should either all be out of competition for safety or, if it is safe, we should all be moving forward. “To see what some of those kids have worked for throughout their high school career taken away is absolutely brutal.”

Gordon William Douglas 1935 - 2020

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our father, Gordon William Douglas who passed away peacefully at the Kamloops Hospice on October 1, 2020 at the age of 84. Gord is survived by his two sons; Scott (Shannon) and Bruce (Susan), and daughter Diane (Alan), twelve grandchildren who all loved him tremendously; Nicole, Jacquilyn, Taylor, McKenzie, Connor, Karrington, Finlay, OIiver, Nick, Liam, Eliot, and Felix. Dad was predeceased by his parents Christina MacGregor and William Carter Douglas, brother Ron Douglas, and wife of 62 years, Francis Louise Douglas (née Braaten), who passed away in 2019. Gord, born on November 10, 1935 in Calgary, Alberta was the youngest of two sons of Christina and William who raised their family in Turner Valley, Alberta. Dad met Mom in grade 4 in the small town school where they spent the next 8 years. Shortly after high school graduation, they moved to Calgary where Dad and Mom were married on September 7, 1957. They started their family in Calgary with the birth of Scott in 1962 followed by Bruce in 1964. After a short stint in Prince Rupert, Dad and Mom moved the family to Kamloops in 1970 where the family lived a good life. Daughter Diane joined the family in 1977. Dad and Mom built a successful accounting firm together in Kamloops that allowed them to retire in their early 60s and travel to many places in their 5th wheel trailer. Retirement included golfing, fishing, travelling to Arizona, California and all over BC making many friends along the way. Much of their retirement years were devoted to their many grandchildren. We wish to thank the wonderful staff at the Kamloops Hospice for their empathetic care and for keeping Dad comfortable in his final few days. Due to Covid 19 we will not be having a celebration of Dad’s life. If you knew Dad and wish to acknowledge his passing, please consider donating to the Kamloops Hospice Association in his name.

Your Spirit

I know that no matter what You will always be with me. When life separates us I’ll know it is only your soul Saying goodbye to your body But your spirit will be with me always. When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch I will know it is you singing to me. When a butterfly brushes gently by me so care freely I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain. When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention I will know it is you reminding me To appreciate the simple things in life. When the sun shining through my window awakens me I will feel the warmth of your love. When I hear the rain pitter patter against my window sill I will hear your words of wisdom And will remember what you taught me so well’ That without rain trees cannot grow Without rain flowers cannot bloom Without life’s challenges I cannot grow strong. When I look out to the sea I will think of your endless love for your family. When I think of mountains, their majesty and magnificence I will think of your courage for your country. No matter where I am Your spirit will be beside me For I know that no matter what You will always be with me. by Tram-Tiara T. Von Reichenbach

Audrey Viola Danks (née Woolley) August 10, 1930 - October 21, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother. Audrey is survived by her sons John (Christine), Bill (Bridget) and daughter Sandra (Dennis), grandchildren Christopher and Michael Danks, Raylene and JR Danks, Ericka and Thomas Blechingberg, Julia and Michael Casol, and great-grandchildren Elliot, Jonathan and Samantha. Audrey grew up in Copper Mountain, BC. She met her life partner John Danks in Victoria in 1948 and they married there in November 1949. They raised a family starting in May 1952 with the arrival of John junior. They moved to Kamloops six moths later. Bill and Sandra were both born there and Audrey called Kamloops home for the remainder of her life. She and her husband travelled to England, France, Hawaii, Italy and Greece together and after John’s passing in February 1991, Audrey travelled to Alaska, Mexico, and cruised the Danube from Hungary To Germany. Audrey’s family and friends were everything to her, and the last few months were very difficult for her due to the visitation constraints as a result of the Covid pandemic. Her favourite charities were the Trans Canada Trail, the Heart and Stroke fund, BC Cancer Society and the Riverpole Project a gift to the city of Kamloops from donors. She was very proud of this project and worked tirelessly to see that this special piece of artwork was erected for everyone to observe and share. She loved golfing, cross country skiing, curling, hiking, playing bridge and gardening. She touched many people in her lifetime and will be truly missed. No service as per Audrey’s request. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to any of the charities mentioned above in the name of Audrey Dank’s name.

In Loving Memory of Yvonne Gawlig (née Casanova) October 20, 1941 - October 24, 2020

It is with heavy hearts and immense sadness that we announce the passing of Yvonne Gawlig, just days after her 79th birthday. Left to mourn is her daughter Perdita and son-in-law Allen Bostock, together with two brothers in Switzerland, a great many in-laws in Ontario, Germany and Denmark and numerous wonderful friends here in Canada and from around the globe. Born in Tiefencastel, Graubunden, Switzerland, the youngest of nine children. At the age of 21 she decided to come to Canada to learn English. Her plan was to stay for one year before returning home to her native Switzerland. All of that changed however, when she met Martin the love of her life. Martin had also recently come to Canada, having left Germany in order to start a new life here (her brothers often teased her about going all the way to Canada to marry a German Fellow!). They settled in Southern Ontario and Yvonne lived there until shortly after Martin’s death, when she was persuaded to move to British Columbia to be closer to her daughter. Once in Kamloops, she quickly made many new friends and even joined the local German Choir, Der Liederkreis. Yvonne was a very kind and generous individual, a woman of many talents. Among her favourite activities were travelling, gardening, arts and crafts, reading, cooking and entertaining. There was not anything she wouldn’t try at least once. She loved a good joke and especially being with her friends and family. Her fun loving spirit, together with her sense of adventure, lead to many life experiences.

Gone now to sing amongst the angels, she will be missed by all who knew her. “HU-HU” MAMMA, LOVE YOU ALWAYS... Perdita & Allen wish to say a special Thank-You to Dr. Jason O’Connell, as well as the caring and dedicated staff at Royal Inland Hospital, and particularly the team on 5-South, as well as the incredible caring and compassionate staff and volunteers at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association, the Canadian Cancer Society or charity of your choice. Due to Covid-19 there will be no service at this time.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Howard Leslie Tithecott on October 19, 2020. After several months of declining health, Howard died peacefully with family by his side. He was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. Howard was born in Sarnia, Ontario on September 21, 1940 to Albert and Bessie Tithecott, the youngest of their four children. He was predeceased by his parents, his brothers Gerald, Lloyd, sister Noreen and brother-in-law Forrest Shaule. He is survived by his wife Joan, his children Catherine Donaldson (Paul), Paul Tithecott (Kari), Janice Tithecott, Lindsay Tithecott (Justin Burkatsky) and his four grandchildren: Spencer, Abby, Owen, and Nathan as well as sisters-in-law Helen and Joyce and numerous nieces and nephews. Howard spent his childhood in Sarnia and after high school attended Wayne State University graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. After graduation, he accepted a position with Weyerhaeuser Canada and began what would be a thirty-eight year career. During the mid 1980s, an accomplishment he was particularly proud of was the creation, implementation and on-going support of a Canada-wide lumber sales system. Family was central to Howard. He was proud of his four children and they had his full support in their endeavours. He welcomed their friends, was available when they needed advice and expected them to do their best at whatever they tackled. His grandchildren were a particular joy in his life. He was fascinated by their enthusiasm and energy, and he always joined in their fun. All who knew Howard well appreciated him for his humour, his integrity, his loyalty, and his generosity.

He will be greatly missed. The family would like to thank those who cared for him during his illness, especially Dr. James Howie who was his family doctor for many years.

May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of Despair

In lieu of flowers, donations may be given in Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to Mount Paul United Church or to the charity of your choice. A family service governed by COVID protocols will be conducted by Rev. David Cooke.

A Vanished Friend

Around the corner I have a friend In this great city that has no end; Yet days go by, and weeks rush on, And before I know it a year has gone, And I never see my old friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face,         He knows I like him just as well As in the days when I rang his bell,                   Tired of playing a foolish game,          â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tomorrow, I will call on Jim,              But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And the distance between us grows and grows, Around the corner, yet miles away  Â?         Â? And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we get, and deserve in the end, Around the corner a vanished friend! by Anders Lim
