A cultural map of the opioid crisis JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

bout 40 years ago, cultural mapping was developed amidst land claim issues in Northern Canada. Indigenous land claims based on oral history couldn’t be proven in court. As a result, hundreds of maps were drawn. The maps were so precise, they passed legal threshold and the court ruled in favour of local Indigenous land rights. Today, that same research technique has been endorsed by the United Nations and is being used by Thompson Rivers University researchers working with the City of Kamloops as a way to gain a deeper understanding of the opioid crisis as overdose deaths continue to rise in the city and throughout British Columbia. “I think what we’ll have is a much clearer view, a much clearer definition of the issues at stake in our local community,” said Will Garrett-Petts, TRU’s associate vice president of research and graduate studies and project lead. Garrett-Petts said the city approached the university about the

project about a year ago, after the university had been consulting with Urban Systems for the City of Vernon on a similar project. The City of Kamloops’ acting social and community development supervisor, Ty Helgason, said information gleaned would be valuable for developing supports for people experiencing addiction, as well as for reducing community stigma. The city and university recently renewed a memorandum of understanding that highlighted the importance of the relationship for issues including rebuilding from the COVID-19 pandemic and noted the project as one on which the city and university were collaborating. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian has stressed the importance of such partnerships, included in his 2018 mayoral campaign. He said the project is one example of how the memorandum is increasing research capacity for the city and research opportunity for the university. Christian said TRU staff, faculty and graduate students have the expertise, noting more is expected in the future.

Potholes are formed when water seeps into small cracks in the asphalt and freezes. The expansion of the ice in the crack causes the asphalt to crumble, and potholes eventually form after repeated freeze-thaw cycles.

WHY DOES KAMLOOPS GET SO MANY POTHOLES?

Kamloops.ca/Compost

While Kamloops can generally boast about having a fairly mild winter climate, the constant variation of temperature above and below freezing results in the creation of potholes every winter and more predominantly in early spring.

DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE Every December, the Mah siblings — from left, Christina, Wesley and Vanessa — visit the Kamloops This Week office to play a few songs and, with mom Michelle to drop off a donation for the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund. This photo is from their 2019 visit. With the pandemic upon us and COVID-19 protocols in place, a visit this year is unlikely, but we are working on having the siblings create some memorable music we can post online for all to hear. The annual KTW Christmas Cheer Fund raises money for five local charities and will be the subject of stories in the print edition of KTW and online at kamloopsthisweek.com from now through December.

The colder weather and arrival of snow means we are now entering what many call the holiday season. It’s also considered the season of giving and, as Kamloops This Week has done every year since 2014, we celebrate the season of giving with the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund. The endeavour, which was created in 2001 by Greg Drinnan at the Kamloops Daily News, provides money to five local organizations. Those groups change every two years, with the exception of the Y Women’s Emergency Shelter, which remains part of the fund every year, at Drinnan’s request. The other four groups involved this year are Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association, Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism, New Beginnings Stroke Recovery and

Kamloops Brain Injury Association. In the coming weeks, in print and online at kamloopsthisweek.com, we will be profiling each of these organizations to showcase the work they do in the community and the ways dollars from the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund will help them in 2021 and beyond. Unlike previous years, the fund is starting off with a bonus of about $9,000 in 2020. “We’ve partnered this year with the VW Turtle River Race, which gave us a great

boost to start the campaign,” explained Tim Shoults, KTW’s operations manager. The boost is appreciated, as with most other fundraising projects this year, there’s no way to gauge what the response will be like in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The variety of fundraising events will also be reduced because of the pandemic. Last year’s KTW Christmas Cheer Fund raised nearly $50,000. “Non-profit groups are having to scramble more,” Shoults said. “It’s going to be more important than ever for people to support the ones that mean something to them.” One of the benefits of donating to the Cheer Fund is the ability to help a number of local organizations with just a single donation. Donations can be made at the KTW office at 1365B Dalhousie Drive or online at kamloopsthisweek.com/cheer.

Mapping helps make research visible to all From A1

“One of the things we’ve been concerned about is the temporal and spacial distribution of the opioid overdoses and whether or not you can relate those to some of the supports that we have in place,” Christian said. “Lots of people say that and I think it is anecdotally intuitive, but I want to know if the research supports that.” Garrett-Petts has 20 years’ experience with cultural mapping and residents may recall an exhibition at Kamloops Art Gallery in 2005, at which time he had been researching culture in small Canadian cities. Garrett-Petts told KTW cultural mapping “makes research visible” and accessible. Individuals are asked to draw a map or other visual representation of how something — i.e., the overdose crisis — affected them and researchers then follow up with an interview, at which time the participant is asked to provide a tour of the map. Analysis follows. “What we find is that the process of cultural mapping elicits a really, really detailed narrative of the kind you wouldn’t get from a normal interview,” Garrett-Petts said, noting traditional interviews, focus groups or surveys put control in the hands of the solicitor and may result in fewer details, talking points or bias. “If somebody spends 20 minutes to an hour, which is normally what they would spend, crafting these visual representations of their sense of place and how things have affected them and then they take you on a detailed tour of that map, the information provided tends to be much more intimate and much, much more detailed,” he said. Cultural mapping of the overdose crisis has been done at the provincial level, but until now, has not provided a local picture. Garrett-Petts said the project, which also includes a Vancouver Island community and could provide a framework for other communities, will continue over the next few years. It has so far involved the street entrenched and those directly involved with opioid addiction, with about 60 maps collected. The COVID-19 pandemic

impacted face-to-face interactions and resulted in a seven-month hiatus, but the project is again ramping up. Plans are to also collect maps from service providers, health authorities, policy makers and men in trades, with the goal of collecting between 60 and 100 for each group. Garrett-Petts said one group was of particular interest to the city — men in trades, which is a demographic over-represented in the overdose numbers, but less eager to share experience. Garrett-Petts said some information is known: the demographic is middle-class and upper middleclass men ages 19 to 49 who work in construction trades. They might be injured on the job, prescribed opioids and become addicted. However, Garrett-Petts said little else is known and the city had asked for ways in which discussions could be opened up. Stereotypes of strength would indeed suggest a challenge. Garrett-Petts said gaining access to that population starts with relationship building and snowballs from there. A meeting TRU dean of trades Baldev Pooni proved fruitful. Trades professors got on board, volunteering their classes to participate. Second-year students — who have gone out and received work experience before heading back into the classroom — will be a vital source of information, as will their professors. The hope is participation will spider out into the broader network of tradespeople. It will be labour-intensive with between 10 and 20 people brought

in for a workshop at one time. “This kind of work — because of the level of intensity — hasn’t been done before and it will take a couple of years to gather that kind of information, but it’s really, really important,” Garrett-Petts said. “If this is a group that’s representative of over half of the overdose deaths in the province, then we need to know more about their views, about their experiences and the best way of approaching and helping them, assisting them.” What began as a project without funding has since received provincial and federal dollars over four years to accomplish the work. Garrett-Petts and his small team of researchers — including co-investigator Sharon Karsten, who works for the Comox Valley Art Gallery in Courtenay on Vancouver Island, TRU faculty and students — received $392,000 worth of provincial and federal grant funding from the Vancouver Foundation and federal government through the Social Sciences Humanities Research Council of Canada. The plan is to compare the communities at a later time. The drawings are the first step. Garrett-Petts said the maps keep individual voices alive and will be displayed via an exhibit, as well as used to develop policy based on lived experience. The researchers are involved in a monthly meeting with the United Way’s community-action team and are working closely with city managers and staff. “We have a ready audience of policy makers and service providers who are interested in making change,” he said. The information will also be made available to the public. Garrett-Petts said the maps will be archived online through the TRU Library. Individuals who mapped their experience have the opportunity to remain anonymous or include their names. The project will also include an exhibition component, including display of maps at the Xchange lab in the United Way building in North Kamloops and potential audio walks.

Couple arrested, accused of abducting their own child KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A man and a woman are behind bars after allegedly abducting their biological child and fleeing Kamloops. Mounties said they were close to issuing an Amber Alert on Monday afternoon as the incident was unfolding. RCMP Sgt. Darren Michels said police were called at about 2 p.m. after the couple forced their way into a home, assaulted a care

worker and abducted their child. “It was anticipated that the parents would be headed south on the Coquihalla Highway, so RCMP members fanned out information to all surrounding detachments,” he said. Michels said the parents were arrested after being found in their vehicle near Merritt. The child was travelling in a separate vehicle with a grandparent, Michels said. “Contact was subsequently made with the grandfather by

phone and he agreed to present the child at the Hope RCMP detachment,” Michels said. “The grandfather arrived with the child at the Hope detachment a short time later and was met by police. The child was in good spirits and was returned to the caregivers.” Michels said the 38-year-old father and 37-year-old mother were expected to appear in Kamloops provincial court on Tuesday afternoon.

COVID-19 cases at RIH work site MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A group of workers on the patient-care tower construction site at Royal Inland Hospital have tested positive for COVID-19, the Interior Health Authority has confirmed. There is no word yet on how many confirmed cases there have been, but general contractor EllisDon closed the work site on Monday “out of an abundance of caution” following the potential exposure, Interior Health said in a statement. Public health teams are completing contact tracing

and the test-positive individuals who in self-isolation. The health authority is not classifying the situation at the construction site as an outbreak, as it said it can assure the exposure was limited to a crew that did not mingle with others on site. According to IH, the workers’ movement “was also limited around the hospital and within the community” as the construction zone is separate from the hospital itself and contact tracing determined those who tested positive had limited interactions with the broader community. IH said a “deep clean of the site” was conducted and it was expected to reopen, possibly on Tuesday.

DIFFERENT DEMOCRACIES

Y

es, the sun rose today and the burning star will set again late this afternoon. Your baby cried and your dog waited to be fed and the wind blew. No, life as we know it did not end last night with the arrival of the contentious United States election, despite what you may have read in mainstream and social media in the past few weeks. As these words were being written, voters in the U.S. were still casting ballots and the results were still a few hours away. Storefronts were boarded up, ammunition was removed from some stores and a scale-proof fence was erected around the White House. While the final results will create anger on one side of another, the world does go on. Today, the morning after the election that followed a most bizarre campaign, is perhaps a good day to reflect on two campaigns. Both the United States and Canada are democracies, but the political differences are stark. During the recent B.C. election campaign, insults from one party leader to another were kept to a minium. The incumbent premier was the object of criticism, not a kidnapping plot. There were Burma shaves featuring colour-codes supporters waving signs at passing vehicles, not crowds of armed men and women lining up to stage counter-protests amid extreme tension. Cafes, restaurants and pubs were open for business, not protected behind plywood. And we here in Kamloops are quietly waiting for about 6,000 mail-in ballots to be counted in one of the ridings, nearly two weeks after the election, with no warnings from politicians of violence on the streets and no court challenges. We are by no means perfect, but it is worth reviewing the marked differences in the political climate of the two democracies. The U.S. is a great nation and great neighbour and we sincerely hope its gaping wounds begin to heal because the world is better when America is better.

Equity enables success

S

chool District 73 provides a public education to more than 15,000 students, of whom about 2,800 are of Aboriginal ancestry in the territories of seven bands, or First Nations: Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc, Skeetchestn Indian Band, Whispering Pines/Clinton (Pellt’iq’t First Nation), Simpcw First Nation, Neskonlith Indian Band, Adams Lake Indian Band and Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band. The 2020 Aboriginal Education Report details what the KamloopsThompson School District is doing to meet the goals set out in our strategic priorities, along with those outlined in the fourth Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement (2016–2022). A highlight of the report is the rise in the district of the Aboriginal six-year completion rate, from 78 per cent in 2017–2018 to 84 per cent in 2018–2019. Compared to provincial fiveyear completion rates showing a 23 per cent gap between Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal students, in SD73, this gap is nine per cent. When comparing the six-year completion rates, our Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal students show an 18 per cent and a five per cent gap. It’s clear we are doing significantly better than most other districts in the province, but there is more to be done. As a district, we have not reached parity or equity for Aboriginal learners. Our goal is to completely close this gap. The Ministry of Education’s Equity Project is now in its third year and it is focused on bringing equity and parity in education to

Aboriginal Learners across B.C. SD73 is starting to recognize the barriers for Aboriginal learners, and better understand what needs to be done to address them to create equity. For example, while Aboriginal people are overrepresented in low socio-economic status (SES) statistics, and low SES is a prime indicator for low outcomes for students, it is incorrect to assume this is why the gap for Aboriginal students exists. According to Mike Bowden, SD73’s district principal for Aboriginal education, the research shows that even without SES as a factor, Aboriginal populations continue to struggle with equity in the education system as compared to non-Aboriginal students. The assumption is that giving people equal treatment means everyone benefits from the same supports. In an equitable system, existing barriers are addressed by giving people the support they need. Once barriers are removed and the causes of inequity are addressed and everyone has equity, we will be able to achieve parity. Part of removing barriers is enabling students to see their cul-

ture reflected in their schools. This is why accommodation of Aboriginal culture and identity is regarded as a core responsibility of our schools rather than as a special project to be undertaken after other obligations are met. As summarized in the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, educational institutions have a pivotal role in transforming the relationship between Aboriginal peoples and Canadian society. Through the commitment of all educators, connections made with parents and community members continue to improve. These connections, in turn, are instrumental in improving the success and the personal well-being of all district students. Through the educational experience, Aboriginal learners not only receive a graduation certificate, they also become resilient and engaged citizens with positive life outcomes. It means learners can succeed personally and academically, regardless of background, identity or personal circumstances. Linking student achievement to equity, inclusion and diversity promotes learner well-being, engagement and school connectedness, and results in the creation of educated citizens. Equity, inclusion and diversity are central to the district’s vision — to be a dynamic school district, we remain committed to achieving success for all students through equity and excellence.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

AMID PANDEMIC, HOPE REMAINS TURNOUT RESULT OF FLAWS OF FIRST PAST THE POST Editor: Re: Tushar Jain’s letter of Oct. 28 (‘Dismayed to see democracy taken for granted’): Jain expressed a common conclusion among voters. The inherent flaws of the first past the post electoral system are low voter turnout, wasted votes and distorted results. Politicians want us to believe in voter apathy, laying the blame for low voter turnout on the voters. Another explanation is voters have disengaged, as in made a reasoned decision to not participate because the system does not allow our real participation. Disengagement lays the blame on politicians responsible for not providing adequate participation to want to continue voting. Advocates of first past the post have the power of the press on their side. Advocates of electoral reform have to use another form advocacy. What could it be? A majority of voters have a superficial understanding of politics, thus being compliant and complacent. I came across this in a science fiction novel: “Ignorance can be fixed, stupidity is forever.” How to get voters to understand the media is bamboozling voters with untruths, half-truths and lies in order to keep the politicians in power? One wonders why the politicians cannot understand (or choose to not understand) that electoral reform would be in their own best interest — and ours. Ray Jones Kamloops

Editor: The world might be experiencing a pandemic, but that doesn’t mean life has been put on hold. While every news report is saturated with COVID-19 and “the new normal,” real-life situations have carried on. When I visited a long-term care facility over the summer and sang with them from outside, it was with the realization there were real people inside the building and they had been kept inside for months on end. Their families and loved ones were isolated from them. The parking lot was empty. My God, what are we doing? Loneliness, anguish, loss, grief and even anger were emotions that were being played out while the media pumped up stories to feed a frenzy for

information and statistics. All the while, our family was one of hundreds of other families who were trying to deal with a family member who had been stricken with a serious illness. The technology of the 21st century kept people in contact with those who found themselves struggling through visits to doctors, appointments at hospitals and coping with treatments. Life was not put on hold for them. Nor was cancer. For all the others who have travelled these terrible miles, might it be at least be a small consolation that you have not been alone in your journey? As for your loved ones, you hear their voice. You remember the times growing up. I remember the days of our youth, when life was so free and easy — James

Taylor and Carole King, bye, bye Miss American Pie, your wedding day when promises were made to have and to hold, through sickness and in health from this day forward ’til death do us part. You didn’t realize how much those days so long ago would mean so much some day — like today. Not everyone has a twin. I have no idea what it is like not to be a twin. Even though he has gone from this life, a lot of things will never change inside of me. I now can relate to those who have lived through other things in life while the pandemic has tried to take over the world and our lives. There is still loss. There is still human grief. And there is still hope for eternal life. John Noakes Kamloops

WESTSYDE POOL NEEDS TO REMAIN OPEN Editor: For the life of me, I cannot figure out the rationale of repairing the Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre, only to close it down during the pandemic, as is the city’s plan once the Canada Games Aquatic

Centre reopens in January. The Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre is a boon for all of Kamloops and, with the whole area rapidly growing, it is needed. Also, the latest 2020 fall/winter sched-

ule — from Oct. 13 to Dec. 20, with lap and leisure swims restricted to Saturdays and Sundays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. — is very inconvenient. Diane Swannell Kamloops

HERE IS THE ULTIMATE TIME CHANGE COMPROMISE Editor: Every six months, we go through the process of adjusting our clocks ahead an hour and behind an hour. Or maybe it’s behind an hour and ahead an hour. I’m confused.

And this happens every six months. Newfoundland/Labrador is a halfhour out of sync. My brain is now hurting. Why don’t we all compromise and adjust one half-hour behind the spring

forward hour in 2021 and be done with it once and for all? I think my message is clear.

Following concerns from area residents, the City of Kamloops issued nuisance property notices this week to motels on West Columbia Street in Lower Sahali and plans to meet with the owners to devise strategies to mitigate impacts on the neighbourhood. City community and protective services director Byron McCorkell said almost all of the motels on the stretch of Columbia received notices. “We’re using the tools that we have to try to get some change to happen,” McCorkell said. “We’re certainly aware that people are using some of those locations as their residence and we need to work with those individuals as much as we need to work with the owners. At the end of the day, there should not be some of the activities and actions happening up there that are, so we are going to do what we need to do to get that under control.” McCorkell explained nuisance properties fall under the city’s good neighbour bylaw and are a general reflection of responses required from police, fire and bylaws. “We noticed an uptick in the amount

of effort that was being required with regards to some of the motel locations up there, so we’ve advised them all that they need to be aware of that as property owners,” McCorkell said. “They need to work with us to try and mitigate it.” Shots were fired in the parking lot of the Hospitality Inn last week and a domestic dispute followed shortly thereafter, with both incidents drawing a large police response and prompting a hold-and-secure situation at nearby Beattie elementary. Residents in the area have reported increased property crime and other activities and parents at Beattie have expressed concern for the safety of students. They have cited motel activity as the reason for the negative activities. McCorkell said the motel properties need to be managed. If certain activities are occurring on the property, the owner has to play a role, he said. Under the good neighbour bylaw, once a property is deemed a nuisance, the owner can face potential penalties each time the city responds to a situation on the property. “Basically, we’ve put them on notice that they need to take steps,” he said. “A bylaw system is a time-delayed system. We give a reasonable time to see

some change and, hopefully, we will be meeting with each of the owners and working with them on strategies on how they can mitigate the need for us to be responding. Then, we’ll be looking at them to implement those strategies. Over time, we should see a reduction in calls.” McCorkell said that if a reduction in calls is not realized or the motel owners do not participate, the city would escalate the situation. EVICTION OF RESIDENTS? While some bad apples may be causing issues in the area, low-income families, seniors and international students also live in motels as makeshift housing. Asked if the the nuisance property notice means evictions, McCorkell said it does not. McCorkell said strict reading of the Motel Act stipulates stays cannot be longer than 30 days, but he noted the city is in the business of ensuring people have housing. “We are cognizant of the fact that some people are finding shelter there, so we’re going to work with both sides of that conversation,” he said, adding it comes down to the willingness of motel owners to work with the city.

Who is better for the Stock Market - Democrats or Republicans? *This article was written prior to election results*

Presidential Cycle

Last night, Americans headed to the polls in arguably one of the most divisive elections in history. In the months leading up to the election there has been no shortage of theatrics, assertions and assumptions about either candidate winning. Many clients have been asking us about the potential ramifications to their investments. On average, the markets have returned more under a democratic president. We found this data remarkable since a more "pro-business" party should have more favourable stock market returns. What the statistics don't completely account for is the timing around major events. For example, in 2008 Obama inherited a depressed economy and stock market due to the financial crisis. The following years saw a strong recovery in the markets. In addition, we believe investors should temper their expectations. Ned Davis Research (no relation) studied "Presidential Cycles" discovering that the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) posted its weakest returns in the first 2 years of the four-year election cycle. Since 1900, the DJIA has gained the following returns:

So who is better for the stock markets – Democrats or Republicans? Generally, the Republican platform believes in less regulation, lower taxes and being more pro-business, which are viewed as positives for U.S. stock markets. Yet the following table tells a different story, highlighting the average S&P 500 Index returns during various presidencies.

TD Wealth Private Investment Advice

The election and aftermath may take some time to play out. Furthermore, the world is still navigating through a global pandemic. It reminds us that no one can predict short-term moves in the markets. When Trump surprisingly won the presidential election in 2016, the experts got it wrong. Initial belief was that markets would drop upon his narrow victory. Surprisingly the S&P 500 rallied over 20% during his first year as president. A good reminder that the markets often do not behave the way we expect. Because of this, we encourage investors to ensure that they are properly diversified and take at least a two to five year investment outlook. Written by Keith. Until next time… Invest Well.

ARPA Investments Parm Mahal, left, Joshua Knaak and Jas Mahal congratulate brothers Jeff and Steve Mitton.

Mitton brothers will manage new food hall KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The food hall layout will have 10 stalls, with an anchor restaurant, two bars and seven additional 80-square-foot stalls for partner restaurants to serve food, each using the large commissary kitchen to prep and create. It is scheduled to open in the spring of 2021, with two wellknown city restaurateurs set to manage the facility and operate the anchor eatery and two bars. Earlier this year, Arpa Investments announced plans for the commercial space at its The Colours on Spirit Square development, next to the Red Beard Cafe at Tranquille Road and Yew Street. The concept was for a food hall similar to the Hargrave Street Market in Winnipeg or the Anaheim Packing District in Anaheim, Calif. Managing the food hall will be Jeff and Steve Mitton, who own and operate Mittz Kitchen downtown and Twisted Olive Steakhouse in Aberdeen.

“When we heard of the food hall concept Arpa Investments was interested in developing, we wanted to be involved,” said Jeff Mitton. “I have had the good fortune of visiting food halls around the world and I believe we can take that successful concept from other markets and make it a success here in our community.” Steve Mitton said they are committed to making the endeavour a reality, despite the pandemic and its economic impact. “Although right now we’re in the midst of a pandemic, we see a bright future for people to come together to eat and socialize, which is why we’re moving forward on this project,” he said. “Four years ago, there were approximately 140 food halls across North America, and now the number is closer to 450, so it’s a popular concept. At full capacity, our Kamloops food hall will have seating for 222, with the potential for outdoor seating.” When the food hall does open, all COVID19 safety protocols will be followed.

“We are hoping that by the time we open in the spring of 2021, we can adapt as needed, much like what we’ve done with our other restaurants,” Steve Mitton said. The food hall layout will have 10 stalls, with the anchor restaurant, two bars and seven additional 80-square-foot stalls for partner restaurants to serve food, each using the large commissary kitchen to prep and create. The management team is focused on working with unique, locally owned restaurants that will add to the collection of fresh and local food. “As the anchor restaurant, our team will also help provide on-site support and collaboration to other restaurants,” Jeff Mitton said. “It’s a great opportunity for newer restaurants to take this as a next step before they commit to running their own larger restaurant because we know how much of a risk it is. This model helps to limit some of the risks and test concepts.” Arpa Investments cited the experience

and expertise of the Mittons. “Steve, Jeff and their team have decades of experience,” Arpa Investments partner Joshua Knaak said. “Having been in the restaurant business for years, they understand not only the challenges of the industry, but also the ingredients for success, and we know under their stewardship it’s going to have every chance of success.” Local restauranteurs interested in learning more can contact Jeff Mitton by email at jeff@mittzkitchen.com. When the project was announced in February — prepandemic‚ it was announced as a partnership between Arpa, a local restaurateur and the Kamloops Food Policy Council. The food hall/ commercial kitchen concept is expected to occupy the lower level of Building Two in The Tapestry, which is a five-storey, mixeduse residential and commercial space that is part of The Colours on Spirit Square development.

No arrests have been made, but police have identified four suspects they believe are connected to a fire last week that destroyed a warm-up shelter last frequented by area snowmobilers. The shelter next to the Kamloops Snowmobile Association’s chalet

burned to the ground in the early-morning hours of Oct. 28. A nearby pickup truck was also torched. Both were located on the Tranquille LakePorcupine Meadows Snowmobile Trail north of Kamloops. RCMP Sgt. Darren Michels said investigators from the RCMP’s Kamloops rural detachment have been

looking into the fire. “Four suspects have been identified by the RCMP and this matter is still under

investigation,” he told Kamloops This Week. “There have been no arrests made.” Known as Gloria’s

lowing a trial in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops on charges of aggravated assault and witness intimidation. Dennis was sentenced on Thursday (Oct. 29). Court heard Dennis and Bellows stormed into the North Kamloops home of Matthew Carstairs on Aug. 21, 2018, with a plan to beat and mutilate the 29-year-old drug dealer. Carstairs had been co-operating with police investigating an unrelated shooting, earning himself the title of snitch among his criminal counterparts. At trial, court heard Carstairs was given three options for punishment — have the fingers of one hand severed, have the word “rat” burned into his flesh or have the word “rat” cut into his chest. Carstairs chose the latter and the mutilation was carried out. “It was to provoke a state of fear and the intention was to impede him in his testimony,” Crown prosecutor Sarah Firestone said. “The beating, in fact, had its intended effect temporarily, in that Mr. Carstairs initially declined to give police a full statement.” Dennis, Bellows and a third alleged attacker, Shane Cameron, were described in court as gangland enforcers led by Cameron. Firestone said the attack on Carstairs was especially gruesome. “This was an extremely violent and shocking assault, not only involving a beating, but a mutilation,” she said. “These are long-lasting injuries in terms of leaving scars on his body … simply for having that label — rat.” Carstairs testified

against Dennis and Bellows at trial. He also testified last year in the trial of the suspect in the shooting he helped police investigate. Sheldon Tate, Dennis’ defence lawyer, said his client had an “atrocious” upbringing. He was raised by his grandparents in Fort St. James and his mother was murdered when he was a teenager. Tate said Dennis has a good job lined up for when his incarceration ends, work that will take him away from Kamloops and his criminal connections. Dennis said he’s looking forward to a fresh start after prison. “I just want to say I do really want to be on the streets and I am working on starting my life now,” the 34-year-old said. “I just want to get my family back and I think this is the way to do it. I just want to throw that out there.” B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley sentenced Dennis to six years in a federal penitentiary. “There is no question that, although Mr. Cameron was the leader, the entire group was involved in the enterprise,” he said. “It was also apparent that the purpose of the beating was to deliver a message to Mr. Carstairs not to co-operate with the police and to deliver a message in general that to co-operate with the police was not a healthy choice.” After being given credit for time served, Dennis has about 33 months left to spend behind bars. Bellows will be sentenced at a later date. Last year, Cameron pleaded guilty to his charges stemming from the incident.

The City of Kamloops is now asking residents to wear a mask in all civic facilities, including city hall, Tournament Capital Centre, McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre and Kamloops Museum and Archives. The request comes following advice this week from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, who told British Columbians it is her “expectation” people now wear face coverings in public spaces. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian said the decision to ask residents to wear masks in city facilities comes because the province is in a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, cases are rising in British Columbia and future community transmission is of concern. He said masks will protect both city staff and the general public. “We’ve worked hard to reopen all of our facilities,” Christian told KTW. “If we start seeing transmission in these facilities, the first thing we’re going to do is deny access to people that aren’t going to comply with the rules. “It’s just like the other rules we have in our buildings. The next thing we’re going to do is have to close those facilities down again. We don’t want to go there. We want to keep these open, especially in the winter, when people are dying for things to do. This just makes sense that people would comply with the expectation and that would be what we’re asking.” Masks in city facilities, however, have not been mandated. Christian said some people can’t wear masks for various reasons and the city does not want staff to engage with people who

are opposed to wearing a mask, so-called “anti-maskers.” Coun. Mike O’Reilly said the difference between asking and mandating comes down to hard rules and the potential for altercations. O’Reilly noted transit drivers in the Lower Mainland have dealt with upset passengers. “That’s something that we have to be very mindful of,” he said. “In all of our buildings at the city, we don’t have security guards, we don’t have enforcement.” BC Transit has mandated passengers wear masks, but has not followed up with enforcement. Coun. Dale Bass heard concerns from transit users prior to the initiative and said she continues to hear from concerned transit users. “I’m still hearing from people every week that they don’t want to take the bus because there are too many people on the bus without masks on,” Bass said. “I think it’s because the numbers are going up, too, and more people, particularly seniors who use the bus, are more agitated because it’s scarier again.” Christian said the city could mandate mask use, but has opted against doing so at this point, noting the city continues to take the lead of the provincial health officer. Across the river on the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc reserve, an order mandating masks be worn in public buildings there was enacted earlier this month by band council. The face-covering protocol is to be adhered to whenever a two-metre (sixfoot) distance between people cannot be maintained, such as in hallways, staircases or shared vehicles. In a video update, Tk’emlups Chief Rosanne Casimir said the decision comes in response to the impending second wave

of COVID-19 as case numbers have been rising in B.C. “The use of face coverings have shown to significantly reduce the transmission and exposure of the virus,” Casimir said. Anyone who visits Tk’emlups offices, such as couriers, band members or staff from other buildings, will also be asked to complete a contact tracing sheet. Meanwhile, many stores have mandated mask use — including Walmart and Superstore — and, in the coming weeks, the North Shore Business Improvement Association will be reaching out to its members, suggesting they follow suit. O’Reilly said some business owners have been strict about mask use, while others have been lenient. Without a public health order, it comes down to the individual businesses. “Overall, I think rules are being relatively respected and, again, it all comes down to the business owner’s comfort level of what they want to put in place,” O’Reilly said. Christian is confident Kamloops residents will comply with mask use in city facilities. He said he has seen increasing mask-wearing in the past month and believes most people are “really, really good about it.” “Over the last month, since October, I’ve seen a big increase downtown, especially,” Christian said. “I’m seeing a very big increase in indoor spaces in retail. This is just following suit with what the community is already doing, really.” As for those who don’t wear masks, Bass wants to remind people of those who are immuno-compromised and at greater risk in the community. “I just wish people would just understand it’s just a hunk of cloth,” she said.

LOCAL NEWS Tk’emlups field director and archaeologist Ryan Dickie sifts through dirt during an archaeological dig in Riverside Park in September. MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW FILE

No artifacts yet confirmed to have been found in park JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

No First Nations artifacts have yet been discovered as a result of a recent archeological assessment conducted in Riverside Park, although the final report has yet to be received by Kamloops and Tk’emlups councils. Tk’emlups te Secwépemc and Golder Associates had been in the park earlier this fall for about two weeks, looking for signs of the past in advance of the city digging up the area for a flood-abatement project to begin next spring. While no First Nations artifacts have yet been confirmed to have been found, Casimir said it is important to check. “We all know that when we’re doing any kind of dig that there is always the potential for finding something because of how long we’ve been here,” Casimir said. Through the late 1800s, Riverside Park was home to the Shuswap Sawmill, which burned down in 1901. The municipality then purchased

the property and it became a park. The Secwépemc people used the Thompson rivers before fur traders arrived, fishing and travelling between lands. The city has prioritized as of late working with Tk’emlups during capital projects to preserve artifacts. As a result, ancestral remains were discovered last year during the West Victoria Street road rehabilitation project. Remains discovered on June 26, 2019 — at a depth of about three feet, near the Budget Brake and Muffler building on the downtown route — were those of a woman in her 50s who had died at least 545 years ago. Her death occurred about 300 years before the first Europeans arrived in the area. The woman stood about five feet tall, gave birth to at least one child, was right-handed and had osteoarthritis. No cause of death was determined. Her remains, including rib bones, a femur and shoulder blade, were reburied in the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc’s St. Joseph’s Church cemetery on Nov. 1, 2019.

Lynx now recovering at BC Wildlife Park NEIL MILLER PHOTO

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A lynx that wandered around North Kamloops last week is now in the care of the BC Wildlife Park’s rehabilitation centre. The Conservation Officer Service captured the male lynx that was exhibiting abnormal behaviour in the urban area and brought it to the Fawcett Fanily Wildlife Health Centre for assessment. While the lynx’s outward appearance was deemed normal, a full physical examination revealed it had an abdominal infection. The cause of the infection is unknown and the wildlife park is awaiting the results of diagnostic testing. The lynx is resting at the centre and on antibiotics. “It is fortunate that the BC Conservation Officer Service was able to safely capture and bring the lynx to us. Without their support, it is likely that he would have succumbed to this infection,” a post on the park’s Facebook page stated. “Our rehabilitation team will do everything they can to treat his infection and are hopeful he will pull through.” Animal care manager Tracy Reynolds confirmed the lynx is the same wildcat that was spotted wandering North Kamloops in broad daylight on Oct. 25.

The cat was spotted on Sherwood Drive and Willow Street. Initially, the Conservation Officer Service believed it to be a bobcat, though Reynolds can confirm it is, in fact, a lynx. Conservation told KTW it was going to allow the lynx to move along, but, Reynolds said, by Oct. 27, with the animal still uncharacteristically lingering in the area, the decision was made to capture the cat and bring it to the wildlife park. Reynolds said conservation

captured the animal around the Tranquille Road area of the North Shore using a noose pull and brought it to the health centre that evening, where it was examined by a vet. “They probably wouldn’t have been able to trap it very easily because he was very full,” Reynolds said, noting there were reports the lynx had been seen eating feral cats. The lynx wasn’t acting like itself by hanging around an urban area in plain sight during the day, Reynolds said.

“Lynx aren’t really found in habited areas. They’re quite seclusive and reclusive — they will hide,” she said. Reynolds said the lynx has some fluid built up in his abdomen and she hopes the testing can reveal more about the animal’s condition, noting the infection could be from disease or trauma. “He’s not healthy,” Reynolds said. She said the lynx is estimated to be between two and six years of age, judging by his teeth. Lynx

Noble Creek water issue unresolved JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Following pleas from farmers and facing a potential counter-petition, city council voted on Tuesday to rescind its closed council decision for a $14-million local area service improvement project to upgrade the Noble Creek Irrigation System. The decision, which was made during an October closed-council meeting and released to the public in Tuesday’s council agenda, would have resulted in $11 million worth of capital costs put onto the backs of owners of 47 Westsyde properties who utilize the system for nonpotable irrigation water. The city would have picked up about $3 million of the costs, to be paid for by all Kamloops residents through a 3.5 per cent water rate increase. Following release of the closed council decision, a delegation of property owners appeared before council on Tuesday. Woodward Cider Co owner Adam Woodward spoke on behalf of the property owners, telling council the local area service project — which splits the costs of projects benefiting certain property own-

ers between the city and owners — does not work for properties with farm status. He said some of the project expenses were not necessary and argued water users did not have enough time to consult with one another and the city, following notice of the city’s decision during harvest season and challenges of convening during the COVID-19 pandemic. Woodward said the group represented 40 of 47 property owners. With a majority of property owners on board, it is possible the group could have defeated the LAS project through counter-petition. Cattle rancher Jon Peachey told council he would be “significantly impacted” by the costs, his estimated at about $2.6 million, including interest. Broken down on a per acre basis, he said the added cost would result in an irrigation rate of $1,400 per acre, compared to Kelowna’s rate this year of just shy of $100 per acre. He called it a “hopeless situation” and said he could not compete. “Which makes my farm completely non-viable,” Peachey said. Coun. Kathy Sinclair moved a motion to rescind the decision, with Coun. Dale Bass seconding.

Mayor Ken Christian and councillors Mike O’Reilly, Bill Sarai and Arjun Singh supported the motion, which passed unanimously. Coun. Sadie Hunter has taken a leave of absence to run in the provincial election. Coun. Dieter Dudy is on vacation. Coun. Arjun Singh called the process “clunky.” He said city council has been working to try to make it work for farmers while balancing subsidization from the remainder of Kamloops taxpayers. He asked water users to bring with them an “openness” when it comes to future discussions about funding the system. Woodward said the users are open to considering other options. “We’d have to consult with all the users to see what they’re open to,” he said. Following the decision, Privato Vineyard and Winery owner Debbie Woodward said to council: “I really, really applaud you,” noting the city and users were on the right course to try and find solutions. Next steps for the irrigation system improvements remain unclear without further direction provided from council to staff.

in the wild can live for 10 to 12 years. Reynolds said there are many ways to tell a lynx apart from a bobcat — lynx have fully blacktipped tails, longer ear tuffs, longer legs and are usually larger than bobcats. What is unusual about this cat’s North Kamloops stroll is that lynx are typically found at higher elevations in the Kamloops area, such as Red Lake. Bobcats are more prevalent at lower elevations.

Flu shot more important with COVID-19 MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Getting a flu shot this year may be more important than ever in order to avoid a duplication of the stresses caused by COVID-19. Interior Health medical health officer Dr. Carole Fenton said the flu vaccine is being emphasized this year to relieve the stress of influenza on the health-care system amidst the pandemic and to to help people avoid missing school and work, given stricter requirements to stay home when dealing with respiratory symptoms. Fenton said it is also best for a person to get the flu shot because both influenza and COVID-19 are circulating this winter and there’s no vaccine for COVID-19. “Then, if they have respiratory symptoms, the likelihood that it’s flu is much, much lower,” Fenton said. According to the BC Centre for Disease Control, last year’s flu vaccine was 58 per cent effective for the 2018-2019 influenza season and 72 per cent effective in 20172018. Vaccine effectiveness is the per-

cent reduction in the frequency of influenza illness among vaccinated people compared to people not vaccinated. Fenton said those percentages include people who have had no infection, but noted even those who do get influenza after getting a flu shot have milder symptoms and are less likely to be hospitalized than those who do not get the shot. Fenton said the flu vaccine’s effectiveness varies each year as health professionals must make an educated guess as to what strains of flu they will see when ordering vaccines. This year’s flu shot offers protection against two influenza A viruses and one influenza B virus. The annual flu vaccine is created based on what strains were recorded circulating in the Southern Hemisphere during the spring and summer months, but it’s unclear if it will be a match here until the fall arrives. “We never quite know what we’re going to get until it gets here,” Fenton said. Fenton said data from South Africa and Australia shows that COVID-19 distancing protocols may have been effective in creat-

ing fewer flu cases this year. “That is interesting to see, but because we’ve never had a season like that here, we don’t know what to expect entirely, so we still need to do everything we can,” she said. Fenton said the peak of flu season is typically the last week of December and first week of January, noting people should get vaccinated now.

“At my age, renting is the only way to go. There’s no worries here, you don’t have to do anything. I can go down and have coffee, go do a yoga class, I come back to my suite and the cleaners have finished. You walk in, it’s spectacular. Living here has given us time to do things that we want to do, not things we have to do.

Interior Health will not be offering mass flu clinics this year so as not to create crowds amidst the pandemic, but family doctors and pharmacies have ordered more vaccine doses than ever to close the gap, rolling out innovative ways to deliver the vaccine, Fenton said. “We’ve heard about pop-up tents, drive-thru flu vaccines —

my local pharmacy [in Kamloops] had a text message system so you could wait safely in your car and didn’t have to wait in a crowded waiting room,”she said. Fenton said the entire Interior Health region has been given 300,000 doses of this year’s flu vaccine from the BCCDC and the majority of those have been distributed.

WOULD NEED TO COLLECT ROUGHLY 57 PER CENT OF THOSE BALLOTS TO CHANGE THE RESULTS IN KAMLOOPS-NORTH THOMPSON

Thompson-Nicola Regional District

MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

An estimated 6,000 enveloped ballots in the Oct. 24 provincial election have yet to be counted in the Kamloops-North Thompson riding. Electoral officer Sharon Lyons said 4,748 mailin ballots have been received at the electoral district office on Tranquille Road as of Monday (Nov. 2). That means about 82 per cent of the 5,744 requested mail-in ballots for the riding have been received. Lyons added there are a number of people who dropped off their mail-in ballots at the electoral office on voting day that still need to be added to those 4,748 ballots. When factoring other types of absentee ballots coming in — such as voters who chose to cast their ballots outside their electoral district of residence at advance or general voting or at a voting place other than their assigned voting place on general voting day — Lyons estimated they will be counting about 6,000 enveloped-ballots. She said 826 people voted at the Tranquille electoral office alone — much higher than the couple of hundred she has seen in past votes. “We had lineups here at the office,” she said. This week, the handful of people staffed at the office are busy sorting through envelopes, verifying ballots aren’t duplicates of any that came in on election night and mailing some to their appropriate electoral district office. Lyons said there are three teams of ballotcounters and the goal is to begin counting by Friday, Nov. 6. So far, the only ballots officially tallied have been those cast at advance polls and those cast by voters at their assigned polling stations on election day. In Kamloops-North Thompson, 107 polls reporting 16,600 ballots cast showed B.C. Liberal candidate Peter Milobar (7,028) leading NDP candidate Sadie Hunter (6,237) by 791 votes. B.C. Green candidate Thomas Martin had 1,657 votes and Conservative Dennis Giesbrecht had 1,553 votes — both just under 10 per cent of the popular vote, the threshold needed to garner the $2.50 per vote subsidy to help party coffers. Independent Brandon Russell had 125 votes. Milobar is the projected winner of KamloopsNorth Thompson, but nothing is yet official. With a 791-vote gap to close, Hunter would need to collect roughly 57 per cent of those 6,000 ballots to change the results in Kamloops-North Thompson. Milobar told KTW on election night that conventional wisdom would suggest the results of mail-in ballots would mirror what came in on Oct. 24. “I’m assuming that’s why the projection is the way it is, short of a monumental collapse of the rest of the percentages,” Milobar said.

Kamloops Farmers’ Market takes a look back over pandemic year of operations SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

With the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market having wrapped up operations on the weekend, those running the show are looking back at operations during a market season that was anything but normal. Market manager Greg Unger said running the market during a pandemic has been an ongoing process, from getting vendors on board with wearing masks to stopping customers from congregating. To help, Unger has been able to follow the advice of the BC Centre for Disease Control and the British Columbia Association of Farmers’ Markets, which have provided some information on best practices. “There was even a period where we weren’t even sure if we’d be able to operate this year,” Unger said. But once it was determined how the market could operate,

local vendors were back in business and Unger said adjustments were made based on public feedback. At times, people were concerned with how busy the market was, prompting staff to break up groups of people and those socializing. Eventually, organizers implemented lineups and restricted the number of shoppers allowed in the market space at any given time. The Saturday market takes place on St. Paul Street between Second and Third avenues. The Wednesday market takes place on Victoria Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues. The pull-back on those mingling and socializing is something Unger said was hard to do. “That’s one of my favourite things about the market, is the social atmosphere. I had a lot of trouble, personally, with that. I didn’t want to do away with that,” he said, recalling times he would have to ask people to continue their conversations in more SPONSORED SPONSORED CONTENT CONTENT SPONSORED CONTENT

wide open spaces elsewhere. Another change to the market this year, prompted by the need for physical distancing, was the closure of Victoria Street to vehicle traffic on Wednesdays, allowing vendors to spill out into the street. “People were just saying they thought the Wednesday market was just too crowded. It wasn’t possible for people to safely distance,” Unger said of the site when it was restricted to the sidewalk. Unger said vendors were over-

HOLMES IS WHERE THE Today is Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2020 — the day after the U.S. election. I wrote and submitted this column several days before, to have it done in time for deadline as this edition of KTW went to press yesterday afternoon, before any results from the election would have been known. Considering the chaotic, volatile atmosphere down south, it could be some time before the dust has settled. While writing this, I am trying to imagine what either outcome would look like. If the Orange Menace (as KTW editor Christopher Foulds has aptly named Donald Trump) gets in, there will be many shocked people around the world wondering how on earth it happened, considering Joe Biden was so far ahead in the polls. Alternatively, if Biden gets in, I worry what kind of reaction Trump’s loyal supporters will display. We will also no doubt have to listen to Trump claim it was all due to voter fraud. It is astonishing to me that Trump announced that if he loses, the election was rigged, but if he wins, it was fair. That is so ridiculous and immature. I realize that no matter what the outcome is, we will all need to take a step back and breathe. I am guilty of having become obsessed with the campaign and I even enjoyed posting the funny Trump memes. I have been glued to the tube for his rallies and all the debates. It’s almost like I have a love/ hate

relationship with Trump. I could say it’s harmless fun, but it’s not. I get anxious and lose sleep. That is pretty pathetic given I have no control over it and I don’t even live in the United States. I think about the advice I give people who always go back to unhealthy relationships, where there is drama and chaos. I tell those people they are obviously addicted to the mind games. I recently wrote a column about people who go back to their previous partner, thinking it will be different this time when we both know it won’t. (That column is titled Shoe Shopping on my blog section of my website). Yet, while I tell others they are making a mistake doing that, I am most likely right this moment watching American news and shaking my head that Trump managed to cruise through the pandemic, get everyone in the White House infected, suggested bleach

all “largely supportive” of the pandemic precautions made this year, although some were not on board with masks and saw no need to wear them. Masks were recommended, but never made mandatory. The reason for that, Unger said, is that he “values the diversity of our vendors and all of their different opinions,” with some people acknowledging the science behind masks’ value and others being less cautious due to the outdoor setting. Unger said measures taken overall did impact sales, however. “It’s been a lean year for most of the vendors, but that’s kind of how it’s been for retail across the board,” he said. Dieter Dudy, who sells goods from his Thistle Farms operation at the market, said his sales are down 10 to 15 per cent over 2019. “As far as I’m concerned, that is quite a roaring success for this year,” Dudy told KTW. As for the street closures, Dudy said as a result of the

change, some Wednesday markets performed better than their Saturday counterparts, which he noted in the past has been “unheard of.” “Normally, my Wednesdays would represent about 60 per cent of what I’d do on Saturdays, and actually on three separate Wednesdays, I outdid my Saturdays,” Dudy said. The market also took advantage of a grant from the Ministry of Agriculture, allowing online sales using a service called Local Line. “It was used somewhat in the early stages. April and May were definitely when we saw the most use out of it,” Unger said. The market will continue to offer goods online via Local Line over the winter, but continued use beyond that would first need to be discussed and would depend on the price point of the service going forward, according to Unger. “Most people actually want to come to the physical market,” he said.

Meeting someone special and having a meaningful, lasting relationship is more important now than ever. Even having solid friendships is vital. There is so much uncertainty right now. COVID19 numbers are climbing, we are headed into what is supposed to be a very cold and snowy winter and our bubbles will decrease. Now is the time to look at priorities. We are living in a completely different world — now and for the foreseeable future — so it’s important to have patience and to be kind to our families, friends, co-workers and partners.

Pandemic means an altered Remembrance Day ON NOV. 11, THERE WILL BE NO PARADE, NO LARGE CEREMONY AND NO FLYPAST IN THE SKY KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

T

he Royal Canadian Legion is taking the unprecedented step of discouraging Canadians from attending Remembrance Day ceremonies this year as COVID-19 upends the traditional ways of honouring those who sacrificed their lives for Canada. Legion branches across the country are scrambling to plan strippeddown versions of the annual sombre ceremonies on Nov. 11 as many local governments restrict large-scale gatherings due to the rising number of new COVID-19 cases. This includes Kamloops, where local Branch 52 of the Legion has finalized plans for what it calls a By Veterans For Veterans Remembrance Day ceremony. According to Legion past-president Craig Thomson, there will be no public gathering at Riverside Park, there will be no parade, there will be no fly-past by the Royal Canadian Air Force 419 “Moose” Squadron from Cold Lake, the public will not be invited to attend the ceremony, large contingents of military, police and first responders will not be present and there will be no wreath-laying by the general public. Instead, the official ceremony will be held at the Battle Street Cenotaph, by invitation only, with up to a maximum of 50 people attending. The format of the ceremony will be very similar to past years, with a Cenotaph guard posted, a colour party and the singing of O Canada and playing of Last Post. The laying of wreaths will be restricted to local dignitaries, representatives of the government and members of ANAVETS, Royal Canadian Legion, Rocky Mountain Rangers and RCMP. Other than those dignitaries, the ceremony will be restricted to veterans, with the Legion’s two most senior Second World War veterans part of the group at the Cenotaph. The Legion expects that the number of veterans involved in the ceremony will be about 20, leaving room for about 30 more veterans to attend. Veterans who would like to attend to ceremony can contact the Legion by phone at 250-374-0623 or by email at craig.thomson@legionbcyukon.ca. Preference will be given to those who served during the Second World War, Korean War and in Afghanistan. However, all veterans, including Mounties. are welcome to contact the Legion to attend. Post-ceremony socializing will be also be different this year.

Last year’s Remembrance Day ceremony in Kamloops was well attended. The pandemic means next week’s ceremony will be sparsely attended. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW FILE

The Rocky Mountain Rangers armoury will not be open to the public, while the ANAVETS Unit will be restricted to members only and the Legion will be restricted to members and veterans only. Bob Underhill, vice-president of the legion’s operations in B.C. and Yukon and head of the organizing committee for the ceremony in Vancouver’s Victory Square, said “it is sad that we have to limit the numbers.” The Victory Square ceremony is believed to be the second largest in Canada after Ottawa’s, with about 20,000 people attending each year. This year, Underhill said, the number is being kept under the local maximum of 50. “We’re trying to arrange for our bands and soloists to do their part virtually, not to attract people down to Victory Square,” Underhill said. “We’re going to have our official wreath-laying at the site, but we’re going to try and minimize what we’re actually doing at the site so as to not attract attention and get people gathering because we’re under the 50-person maximum. It’s going to be very different.” Royal Canadian Legion national director of communications Nujma Bond said that despite the restrictions across Canada, the ceremonies will remain unchanged in their reverence paid to Canada’s veterans and some of the familiar elements. “And we are very hopeful and invite people to participate in other ways,” she added. “It’s such a key moment for the Legion every year. It’s a key moment for veterans and for many Canadians.” Ways to participate include not only watching on TV or online, but wearing poppies once they become available later this month and recognizing two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 no matter where people are. POPPY, WREATH SALES CONTINUE The Royal Canadian Legion is still urging people to order wreaths by calling its office at 250-374-0623. Those wreaths will be brought to the Cenotaph prior to the Remembrance Day ceremony. Proceeds of wreath sales and donations to the Poppy Campaign go to programs that directly support veterans and their families. Poppy boxes will be distributed throughout the Kamloops area, giving people the opportunity to donate in the usual manner. The Remembrance Day event will be live streamed on the Kamloops(Branch 52 Legion Facebook page and broadcast on CFJC-TV.

Old Navy is now open in Aberdeen Mall MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

As anticipated, Old Navy in Aberdeen Mall has officially opened — a few days ahead of schedule. The store will be open seven days a week — Sundays, Mondays

and Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Old Navy is also requiring shoppers wear face masks while in the store. The opening was delayed indefinitely this past spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic-related construction delays.

More recently, the clothing store had been pegged for opening by early November and then Oct. 31 by parent company Gap Inc. On Oct. 28, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the newest addition to the mall. The opening is more than a year in the making as city hall received an application for a build-

ing permit to construct the store in the last week of October 2019. Old Navy is located across from Marshalls, which opened this past spring, just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Located on the second floor of the mall, Old Navy and Marshalls are two of three new businesses filling out the space that has been

vacant since Sears closed in 2017. On the main floor, the third business, Fresh Street Market, which will be the mall’s first grocery store, is expected to open by mid-November. The 120,000-square-foot area could see even more stores added as there is an area behind temporary walls that can be filled.

Secret Santa initiative for Kamloops seniors TODD SULLIVAN

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

Dave Ralph and son Clayton share some time at the ball diamond.

Down Syndrome Week a chance to learn more Nov. 1 to Nov. 7 is Canadian Down Syndrome Week. Kamloops resident Dave Ralph is president of the Thompson Nicola Ups and Downs Society and has written the following in advance of the week. Canadian Down Syndrome Week celebrates people with Down syndrome (DS) and raises awareness about this genetic condition that in Canada affects one in each 781 births. DS is also known as trisomy 21, a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. People with DS may have some common physical traits that vary in degree, such as low muscle tone, small stature in children and adults and learning disabilities in children that may carry over into adulthood. It can also cause other more severe medical abnormalities, including heart and gastrointes-

tinal disorders. Severe internal health problems can result in an increase in hospital stays and causes or contributes to developmental progress. Delayed speech development and reduced hearing is common and can make communication with others difficult. Each person with DS is a unique individual and may possess these characteristics to different degrees — or not at all. People with DS, and other special abilities, have their own unique challenges and it is important that communities support those individuals and their families in whatever way they feel most comfortable. All people, including those with unique or special abilities, wish to be a part of their community and engage in local activities. Special Olympics Kamloops

has a great sports program for all people with special abilities, including DS, that engage all athletes in a variety of winter and summer sports. There are many businesses in Kamloops that also support people with Down syndrome and other abilities by offering employment opportunities. It is important that people with varying abilities should be included and welcomed by our communities. Thank you to all the individuals and groups in the Kamloops region and beyond that support people with special abilities and Special Olympics. The next time you see a person with a special ability, greet them with a smile and a “Hello.” Your day will be uplifted by a heartfelt “Hi” and a smile back. For more information on the Thompson Nicola Ups and Downs Society, visit its Facebook page.

Nov. 5 is TRU Day of Giving Thompson Rivers University’s annual Day of Giving, which raises funds to support students, will take place on Thursday, Nov. 5. The annual 36-hour event usually kicks off at the TRU Foundation Breakfast, but that traditional gathering has been sidelined due to the pandemic. This year’s Day of Giving will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday and end at 8:30 p.m. on Friday. The university’s goal is to raise $36,000 in those 36 hours. “This is a chance to help students aspiring to become nurses and carpenters, artists and entrepreneurs,” said Brian Daly, TRU’s

This time of year can prove challenging for seniors dealing with isolation, but with many of the pandemicrelated restrictions remaining in place as the holidays approach, the next few weeks could prove even more difficult. That’s why the Centre for Seniors Information is once again running its annual Secret Santa campaign in order to bring attention, connection and a few gifts into the lives of seniors this year. This is the program’s seventh year. “Seniors who experience isolation in a regular year are probably going to be even more isolated this year,” said Brandi Allen, executive director of the Centre for Seniors Information. The organization has once again partnered with London Drugs for part of the campaign, with the downtown store posting a list of items it suggests people purchase and then leave under its tree as donations. People can also directly support a senior with a $20 donation that can be dropped off at either Centre for Seniors Information location — in Brock Shopping Centre, at

Tranquille Road and Desmond Street in Brocklehurst, and in Northills Centre, at 700 Tranquille Rd. in North Kamloops — or by e-transfer at info@ csikamloops.ca. Donated items will also be accepted, but Allen asks that people contact her first by email at brandi@csikamloops.ca or by phone at 778-470-6000 so arrangements can be made to receive them. Allen said organizers were concerned about how successful the campaign would be in the midst of the pandemic. “I wasn’t sure exactly what donations were going to look like this year,” she said. “I was a little worried because of the COVID situation. I thought, worst-case scenario, we’ll just do some smaller packages, but I think we’re going to be on par with exactly what we did last year.” In 2019, 170 packages were put together, but organizers are hoping to be able to reach a few more seniors this year. The Centre for Seniors Information has a list of gift recipients it maintains and the centre receives referrals from other organizations throughout the year of new seniors to include in their list.

Such items include dog and cat toys, Kongs and pet puzzles, patestyle wet canned food for cats and dogs, dry food for cats and dogs, dog dental or soft treats, cat treats, Yesterday News cat litter, pine or paper shavings for small animals and chew toys for small animals. The SPCA could also use cleaning supplies, including high-efficiency laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, Kleenex, large and extra-large garbage bags, kitchen garbage bags (tall size),

dish soap and dishwasher detergent and sandwich and freezer bags. In addition, printer paper, Scotch and packing tape, white board markers and permanent markers can also be donated. Staff from the Kamloops SPCA, Eat Clean Kamloops and Eat Clean Kamloops will be handing out water and offering giveaways and coupons to the restaurant for everyone who donates.

The Salvation Army’s annual Kettle Campaign is its primary fundraiser for the entire year, but with a strong likelihood there will be fewer people stationed at storefronts during COVID-19 pandemic, the organization has had to look at some ways to modify the campaign. “We rely so heavily on repeat donors,” Kamloops Salvation Army Capt. Cory Fifield said, noting the number of times a given individual walks past one of the kettles will be reduced, perhaps even drastically. In addition, there have been a

number of people who have volunteered to be stationed kettle in the past who don’t feel safe doing so again in 2020. That’s why the Salvation Army has added virtual kettles as a way to support the cause. Anyone can sign up and create their own kettle through a system similar to building an online GoFundMe campaign. Those taking part can set their dollar goal, explain why they are fundraising for the Salvation Army and share the page with friends and family across social media. All of that can be done through the fillthekettle. com website, with money donated locally being used

for local programs. More traditional methods of donation are still available this year. People can donate by phone at 250-554-1611, online by clicking here and in person at 344 Poplar St. in North Kamloops. The Salvation Army’s fundraising goal this season is $375,000, which would match what was raised during the 2019 Kettle Campaign. Still, Fifield acknowledges that might be difficult. “We recognize our reality this year is different,” he said. “We just recognize the reality and make sure everyone knows that there are opportunities and ways to give.”

Storybook Village to replace Santa Parade this year JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Like girls and boys who have had to make changes this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Santa is opting this season to sprinkle magic downtown over several weeks, rather than parade through the streets on one frosty day. Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (Downtown Kamloops) executive director Carl DeSantis said the annual Santa Claus Parade has traditionally drawn crowds in the thousands downtown. However, with restrictions on mass gatherings to prevent spread of the novel coronavirus, the event cannot proceed this year. As a result, Santa has been working with the KCBIA on ways to bring the holiday spirit safely to the streets of Kamloops. After all, Santa doesn’t want to make Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry’s naughty list. DeSantis said effort that typically goes into creating parade floats will instead go into decorating downtown storefronts and blocks, with the intention of creating a Storybook Village. The area will be decked out more lavishly than years past and each block will have a different theme. For example, the 100-block of Victoria Street will be centred around Buddy the Elf. Expect to see lights, ornaments, characters, music and window paint. “Businesses in that area are going to support with window decorations,” DeSantis said. “Various aspects of that story, including Santa’s Workshop, will be there.” More than 30 businesses/organizations — and counting — have committed so far, including the Thompson-Nicola Regional District and Lansdowne Village. Decorations will be visible along Victoria Street from First Avenue to at

least Sixth Avenue and DeSantis said the initiative will carry on throughout the core to the extent businesses show interest. DeSantis said Thompson Rivers University and the BC Wildlife Park are supporting the initiative. Residents will be able take a walk downtown or a drive through the blocks at night, when the area will be lit up.

FAITH

The call and process for a real armistice

I

t is the second-last month of 2020. How the year has flown in spite of the drudgery and slowness that beset us during the past eight months because of the pandemic, when each day seemed to be the same as the day before and the day after. November is also one of those months when the past crowds in on us, preceded by Thanksgiving and Halloween. Then comes All Saints’ Day on Nov. 1 and Remembrance Day on Nov. 11, when we relive the great moments of yesterday and think of those into whose inheritance we have entered. This month is a month to keep alive a tradition, to give thanks to God for the past and to dedicate ourselves to the unfinished task of our veterans. But often we are quite casual with traditions. It is so easy to conclude that nobody in the past had any significance until we arrived on the scene. Therefore, it is good for us to halt every now and again and go over the road our beloved veterans have travelled. Had we known history better, we would not be so disturbed today. A nation is judged by the kind of men of the past it honours. In the past, even last century, there was the company of people who, by the mercy of God and their own gallantry, maintained freedom, the taste of which we continue to enjoy. They fought a war they neither

created nor wanted. They came from many homes — rich and poor, educated or uneducated. Either way, it was not without a cost that the freedom they achieved for us is being maintained today. Their faces we shall never see again, their hands we shall never grasp again, their voices we shall never hear again. Their eyes will not see us. Their limbs will never grow again, their minds will never think again. We remember them in gratitude before God. The great and the good multitudes who bore the testimony of good conscience, who fought a good fight and finished their course. Going back in history has its peril, too. The traditionalists among us could be in danger of living in the past rather than in the present. Someone has said history is the

record of what man thinks of himself, of other and of God. Movements and institutions that have outlasted time have always been built upon these three convictions. Nothing is permanent in any world order unless it is rooted and grounded in these three: integrity, understanding and reverence. First of all, history is the record of what man thinks of himself. Movements and institutions will live and last when they are rooted in character. Well meaning but misguided people are still living today with a comfortable illusion. And because the illusion is so pleasing, it is all the more deadly and fatal. That illusion is that the enthusiasm for unselfishness and high idealism generated by wars will be permanent. Many have made themselves believe that the high levels of patriotic devotion, social restraints and self-discipline the wars forced upon us will continue in “peaceful” days. That is a dreadful illusion because history holds no such warrant. Secondly, history is the record of what man thinks of others. Movements and institutions that last must express themselves in understanding situations better. To be great, life must have its setting in the framework of the community. To personal integrity must be added compassionate understanding.

Bill 21 trial opens in Quebec THE CANADIAN PRESS

The first witness in the legal challenge of Quebec’s secularism law told a Montreal court the legislation makes her feel excluded from society. Ichrak Nourel Hak, a teacher who wears the hijab, was a student when Quebec adopted Bill 21 in June 2019. The law banning public sector workers in positions of authority — including teachers, police officers and judges — from wearing religious symbols on the job has been criticized as discriminatory by civil rights and religious groups.

Nourel Hak said her hijab is a part of who she is and it is unimaginable for her to remove it during teaching hours. She said she received her teaching degree in September and was hired by a private school that isn’t subject to Bill 21. The legal proceedings combine four separate lawsuits challenging Bill 21 into one trial, which is expected to last up to six weeks before Superior Court Justice Marc-Andre Blanchard. Nourel Hak testified that she decided to start wearing the hijab at the age of 21 after

reflecting on her religion. She said wearing the Islamic head scarf is also a way for her to fight stereotypes against Muslim women. “I want to show that there are women who are fulfilled, who want to give back to society,’’ she told the court. Quebec Premier Francois Legault has called Bill 21 “moderate’’ and “balanced’’ and said it is supported by the majority of Quebecers. He has said the law doesn’t prevent people from practising their religion and that it is a way for Quebec to enshrine its deeply held secularist values.

Sleeping Jesus prompts 911 call A life-size bronze sculpture of Jesus, called Homeless Jesus, went viral after someone called 911 about a homeless man on a bench. The bronze sculpture by Canadian artist Timothy Schmalz depicts Jesus, identifiable by the wounds on his feet, sleeping on a street bench wrapped in a blanket. With replicas in prominent urban locations, such as Buenos Aires, Capernaum, New York, Madrid, Melbourne, Rome and Singapore,

Homeless Jesus now dots the globe. There are six replicas in Canada. On Oct. 12, 20 minutes after a replica of the sculpture was installed at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Bay Village, Ohio, a community member called the emergency department, mistaking it for a person in need. Saturday Night Live lampooned this story in a skit on their Oct. 17 show. — Canadian Press

It is only when the sense of social responsibility is joined to personal initiative that a nation is safe. Civilization is not a lonely journey of a lonely soul on the road to a lonely God. It is a pilgrimage on a crowded highway on which we learn to live together for the common good. Finally, history is the record of what man thinks of God. Movements and institutions that have outlasted time have always been founded on spiritual principles. It is possible for man to have personal initiatives and even to have a sense of community-mindedness and still make a wreck of the universe. How all these need repeating today. We often wonder how the world turned out the way it has. And what has happened to us that times like these should come to pass? Of course, we always had the answer. We talk much about economic disaster because of the pandemic, inequality among the races, social injustice, political chicanery and crackpot ideologies. It is true all these had a part in the darkness that has settled upon the world. But they do not go to the root of the matter. Befuddling times have come because we lost our moral awareness and the importance of spiritual values.

We thought the absence of faith was a sign of intellectual vigour. We supposed that man was great in proportion as the sense of mystery vanished. We treated dependence upon God as of little or no importance. We thought of religion as one of the “take-it-or-leave-it” affairs. But we suddenly discover now that the seeds of national decay lie not in political techniques or social structures, but in the character of its people. A nation cannot rise above the level of the soul of its people. A new world can only come to pass through newly transformed people. All the ingenious devices to create goodwill, all the painstaking, meticulous arrangements for world peace will come to nothing if they are placed in the hands of men and women who are unreliable and untrustworthy. The hope of world peace rests essentially in the conversion of man’s spirit by heeding God’s invitation to turn to Him. Narayan Mitra is a volunteer chaplain at Thompson Rivers University.

INTERACT – THE NEXT GENERATION OF ROTARY

R

otary is a powerful force in Kamloops with more than 120 members across multiple clubs – but there’s a whole new generation coming along behind them. Interact is Rotary International’s youth organization, bringing together young people ages 12 and up to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. Interact connects youth with leaders in our community and around the world to take action to make a difference in our schools and community, to discover new cultures and promote international understanding, to develop leadership skills and most importantly, to have fun and make new friends from around the world. Interact clubs organize at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Rotary club sponsors mentor and guide Interactors as they carry out projects and develop leadership skills. Worldwide there are more than 340,000 Interactors in nearly 15,000 Interact clubs in 145 countries, with the Kamloops Interact club getting started with its first meeting of the 2020/2021 year over Zoom on Oct. 6. Kamloops Interact’s

WHAT IS ROTARY?

Shelter vandals commit senseless, stupid acts

S

everal years back, a backcountry cabin saved me and a buddy from a really uncomfortable night in the bush. It was back in the days before I had kids, when I was still free enough (and dumb enough) to zip off on spur-of-the-moment, illconceived quests with no chance of success. This trip was such a venture, a late October trip for elk deep in a valley southwest of Golden. We’d never been there before, nor had we’d never hunted elk. Still, we loaded up my pickup truck and set out with visions of six-point bulls in our otherwise empty heads. About 60 kilometres back from the highway, it started to snow. Not surprising, as the temperature started to plummet as well. It seems when things go astray, they usually the do so in a big way. By late afternoon, there was 12 inches of white stuff everywhere and more coming down, the wind was howling and the mercury was well south of freezing. We intended to sleep in a tent. As dusk approached, we were still looking for a place to call home when we pulled off the main road into a little clearing. At the back of it, tucked into the trees, was a little cabin. It wasn’t much really — a 20-foot by 20-foot structure, with some rough bunk beds, a table, some shelves on the wall and an absolutely beautiful little wood stove (all wood stoves are beautiful when you are wet and cold) in the middle of it. The place hadn’t been used for a while, that was clear, but it was solid and dry. Given the choice between a night on the cold ground protected by nylon walls and a warm night in a cozy heat-filled cabin, we made the obvious choice. The next day, we cleaned it up a fair bit, cut and split three times the firewood we used and dispatched a pack rat that was doing its best to make the cabin his personal, messy little den. I have no idea who built the cabin or why or how often they used it, but we were truly grateful

ROBERT KOOPMANS The Outdoor

NARRATIVE for it. We tried to leave it a little bit better than we found it. Two of my regular hunting partners did the same thing a few years back with a high-alpine cabin they found tucked back into the trees overlooking Adams Lake. This one was most likely a snowmobile cabin and was equipped to keep people suitably protected from winter’s bite. They spent the night inside of it instead of under tents and a tarp. My friends took advantage of it in the same way I did that other cabin years before and, during the midday lull, they set about making improvements. They fixed a door hinge, repaired some broken stairs and left $20 to pay for some of the consumables they consumed (toilet paper, for example). They showed respect for the work of others and did their best to leave the place better than they found it. Contrast that to the experience the Kamloops Snowmobile Association reported last week. Someone passing by a KSA warming shelter on Sawmill Creek Forest Service Road set the small structure ablaze, destroying it. KSA president Joe Boyle told local media that the small shelter was intended for use by snowmobilers and others. The club’s volunteers built it last year for the comfort of anyone who might stumble upon it and need a place to get warm and dry. Provincial regulations actually call for backcountry shelters to be left unlocked, for the purpose of providing folks with emergency

shelters can save lives. Those who stumble across a cabin or shelter in the bush should show the same respect they would for someone’s house. After all, a cabin can be just that — a home away from home — to many people for short periods of time. Leave them as you find them or, better yet, make them better in some small way.

shelter if they need it. Why someone would light a structure such as this KSA shelter on fire is a mystery to me. These places are intended to benefit everyone with need. Perhaps it was an act of unplanned stupidity, as many such acts tend to be. Regardless, it’s a shame and a serious crime. Unfortunately, it seems such acts of vandalism are not uncom-

mon. The KSA said it regularly sees incidences of theft and destruction at its backcountry sites. The club said it will rebuild the shelter, but that comes with a cost, both in terms of the volunteer effort and resources it will take to complete. Hopefully, the club will have the chance to rebuild the shelter before this winter’s season hits hard, as such

Armstrong: ‘I want to win the league’ MEET COLE ARMSTRONG, THE TRAILBLAZING KAMLOOPS NORTHPAWS’ BENCH BOSS MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

C

ole Armstrong is not hiding behind expansion team status. The first head coach in Kamloops NorthPaws’ history blusters into town with lofty objectives for his West Coast League baseball club, which is slated to begin play in the summer of 2021. “I want to win the league. Why else would you ever take a job like this?” said Armstrong, the 37-yearold baseball journeyman from Surrey. “I want to have the most wins in the season and win the championship. That’s the ultimate goal. Now, I’m not naive to the fact this is my first venture into college summer baseball, but that’s my goal.” That type of confidence and belief impressed NorthPaws’ consultant Sean Wandler, responsible for leading the search for head coach No. 1. KTW spoke to Wandler, along with Armstrong’s father, Mel, a former coach himself, and one of Cole’s childhood friends and teammates, Paul Hayes, for insight on the club’s trailblazing bench boss. WHY HIM? The NorthPaws advertised the gig for one month and received about 20 legitimate applicants, none of whom checked more boxes than Armstrong, according to Wandler. Wandler was looking for an extensive baseball resume (see Coles Notes on page A37), a deep recruiting Rolodex and relatability to college-age players, all of which he found in the 37-year-old candidate from Surrey. Those pre-requisites were augmented by a pleasant passport bonus — the NorthPaws are proud to be Canadian in the predomi-

that may eventually include fulltime work on a U.S. college staff. “It’s not about the money and it’s not so much a stepping stone,” Armstrong said. “I really wanted to be able to give something back to baseball in Canada and B.C. It’s a chance to build something from the ground up and that was the biggest appeal. I’m so pumped to get back to B.C. and up to Kamloops for the summer.”

Cole Armstrong has no plans to make chewing out umpires part of his regular routine, but the Kamloops NorthPaws’ head coach is willing to stand up for his club when the time is right.

nantly American 15-team league — and perhaps Armstrong’s No. 1 selling point, which is fire for the game. “If anyone is going to overcome those operational first-year challenges, we honestly think Cole is one of those guys because of the enthusiasm, excitement and the drive,” Wandler said, noting Armstrong’s 10-year Minor League Baseball career will be a teaching tool and contact resource. “He really feels like he’s got something to prove, that he really wants to show Kamloops and the fans we

can be competitive in the first year.” Armstrong’s six-year coaching, managing and player development career inside the Chicago White Sox organization was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking to move into the college coaching ranks, he was tickled to hear from friend and former New York Mets’ hurler Jim Henderson, the Calgary product who mentioned the NorthPaws’ job opening. Wandler wasted little time responding to Armstrong. Zoom

meetings followed with the Kamloops ownership triumvirate of Norm Daley, Jon Pankuch and Neal Perry. “He’s ready and raring to go,” Wandler said. ”He made that very clear in the interview process.” Armstrong, who lives with his girlfriend in Wichita, Kan., will not get rich working for the NorthPaws. The summer job (which requires year-round attention) enables him to keep doing what he loves while earning some coin and adding to a baseball resume

WILL THEY COME? Armstrong was at a Minor League Baseball training camp every year from the turn of the millennium until 2019, either as a coach or player. Relationships formed during that long haul, which included highs and lows across the U.S., will form the backbone of his recruiting operation. “It just seems like the people I was close with, whether it was a player that turned into a scout or a guy who I played with who’s now an agent, it seems to be more important who your recommendation is coming from, when you make the calls to those college coaches, as opposed to cold calling someone off a website,” said Armstrong, who played in the Dominican Winter League from 2009 to 2011. “When you’ve got background with people who have an extended network in the college realm, that’s who I’ve seen the most success with, as far as coaches being willing to send some of their better players.” See COACHING, A37

Tobiano Golf Course was named the best course in Canada at the 2020 World Golf Awards.

Best in Canada MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Tobiano Golf Course has earned a prestigious honour. The picturesque track that runs alongside Kamloops Lake was named the best course in Canada at the 2020 World Golf Awards. “It’s great, obviously, for Tobiano Golf Course, great for the Tobiano community, great for golf in Kamloops and golf in B.C.,” Tobiano owner Mike Grenier told KTW. “More specifically, for us, it brings us to the core of a lot of peoples’ golf thoughts. Hopefully, it will make it easier to develop the hotel and some

of the other properties at Tobiano that are tied in with golf.” Tobiano architect Thomas McBroom accepted the award during a virtual ceremony. The World Golf Awards celebrate excellence in golf tourism, worldclass courses and golf destinations. A nomination process was followed by a worldwide voting event involving golf professionals and public golf consumers. There were 20 nominees in the Canada’s Best Golf Course category. “It is going to broaden the reach of the Tobiano name,” Grenier said. “It’s going to help attract more people to this area.”

Classics get national nod A pair of Kamloops Classic Swimming representatives will participate in the Swimming Canada Paris and Beyond Virtual Distance Development Camp, which will run from Nov. 21 to Nov. 28. Head coach Brad

Dalke and 2003-born swimmer Diego Paz cracked the camp roster. Paz’s selection was

based on performance in the 2019-2020 campaign, which saw him earn silver in the 1,500-metre freestyle at the B.C. Winter Provincial Swimming Championships in March in Victoria to qualify for the Olympic trials.

Coaching in Armstrong’s blood From A35

Most of the NorthPaws’ recruits — the roster will include about 25 to 30 players — will have dreams of playing professional baseball. Armstrong, picked by the Atlanta Braves in Round 12 of the 2003 MLB Draft, has been in their cleats. “To find a guy that’s been in the trenches is a huge recruiting tool,” Wandler said. The NorthPaws’ first signee, catcher Trey Newman of the NCAA Division 1 Utah Valley University Wolverines, worked with Armstrong during a tenure in the Arizona Collegiate Wood Bat League. “The amount that he cares is crazy,” Newman, from Phoenix, said in a NorthPaws’ press release. “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.” In some cases, Armstrong won’t have to do much touting at all. Pro scouts want to see college players swing and react to wood bats. The WCL has a track record of producing MLB alumni. “The league has grown substantially,” Armstrong said, noting the indoor baseball facility on McArthur Island has proved a useful recruiting tool. “It’s turned into the premier wood bat college summer league for players at Division 1 schools on the West Coast.” Those who choose Y A L L

Kamloops will become carriers of the NorthPaws’ reputation. “It’s about providing players with a great experience, so they go back and rave about Kamloops and the NorthPaws to those coaches, so those relationships between the schools and NorthPaws grow and strengthen and it becomes so that, every year, that school is dead set on sending their best players to us,” Armstrong said. Norbrock Stadium and hot Kamloops summers also seem to be playing well in recruiting conversations. “I know it will be an extremely attractive place for players to come,” Armstrong said. “You’re going to see guys in the next four years who played for Kamloops going in the first round [of the MLB draft] and they’re going to end up in the big leagues.” Armstrong’s staff will include assistant coach Sammie Starr and one pitching coach. IN THE BLOOD Dad saw this coming. “I knew the kid was destined to be involved in baseball when he was nine years old,” said Mel Armstrong, who coached Cole until he was about 14. “He just had a natural instinct for the game, for how things work and with his skill level. He was starting catcher

as a nine-year-old on a 12-year-old team. He really loves the game.” Major League Baseball aspirations never materialized for Armstrong, who called it a playing career in 2012. “I spent my whole life as a player and as I transitioned out of that — or should I say, as I was told to transition out of that — the coaching thing became a natural fit,” Armstrong said. “It was really all I knew. I see things I do that maybe I unknowingly do because of how my dad treated players. The things he influenced most are work ethic and how you treat people.” Paul Hayes was a childhood friend of Cole’s and teammates with him on the Kennedy-Surrey team, coached by Mel, that reached the 1997 Junior League World Series in Taylor, Mich. “Mel is probably one of the best coaches I ever had,” Hayes said. “He saw your strengths. He had a way of connecting with you, made you believe in yourself, very compassionate, very empathetic. I think those types of tendencies were passed on to his son. You definitely saw that kind of leadership from Cole at a very young age. Given who his father is, all that knowledge that got passed on, that passion for the game, he was destined from the beginning to be in the game.” Mel and Nicky, Cole’s mom, plan to be regulars at Norbrock Stadium. “Oh, yeah. We’ll

be there. Don’t worry about that,” Mel said. “We’re really looking forward to it. We took a road trip up to have a look at the park about a month ago. It looks great.” FIRE IN COLE? The NorthPaws sent local media a few pictures to go along with a press release introducing Armstrong. One of the photos features the sizeable coach unleashing verbally on an umpire, who is managing not to react despite Armstrong’s close proximity. “I will represent the NorthPaws exactly how ownership wants them to be represented,” Armstrong said with a laugh. “If that’s part of what they want me to do, and the time is right, and I feel it benefits our club, then, yeah, it’s something I’m absolutely willing to do. “At the same time, I don’t necessarily know how much good yelling and screaming at an umpire is going to do. I’m not going to make a sideshow out of it unless I’m asked to. When the time comes, I’ll be there.” Dad was asked if son has some fire in his belly. “He’s mellowing out,” said Mel, noting former White Sox hitting coach Mike Gellinger has been a mentor to Cole. “He’s learning to take things a little slower. He’s got more realization of how you need to handle that kind of stuff.” COLES NOTES Armstrong grew up in Surrey and parlayed

a standout career with the Whalley Chiefs in the B.C. Premier Baseball League into national team experience and opportunities down south. The 6-foot-3, 210pound catcher had post-secondary stints with Chipola College in Florida and the NCAA Division 1 Kansas Jayhawks. He was picked by the New York Mets in Round 32 of the 2001 MLB Draft, but did not sign. The Atlanta Braves nabbed Armstrong in the 12th round of the 2003 MLB Draft. Armstrong played 10 Minor League Baseball seasons, his farm club career split between several organizations, including the Braves, White Sox, Anaheim Angels and Miami Marlins. He represented Canada internationally from 1999 to 2012, including at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Mexico, where the Canadians earned gold. Armstrong worked for the White Sox in player development, position coaching and managing roles from 2014 to 2019. He earned the 2016 Charles Lubin Award, given by the White Sox to a member of the player development staff who demonstrates superior judgment, player communication, motivation and teaching skills in the pursuit of excellence. Seby Zavala, Danny Mendick, Ian Hamilton, Jimmy Lambert, Eloy Jiminez, Zach Collins and Alfredo Gonzalez are among MLB players mentored by Armstrong.

Sinclair, Arfield players of month SUNDHER JOINS PACK THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Canada captains Scott Arfield and Christine Sinclair have been named Canada Soccer’s players of the month for October. Both helped their clubs to success with Arfield and Glasgow Rangers opening a seven-point lead in the Scottish Premiership and Sinclair captaining the Portland Thorns to the NWSL League Fall Series title. Rangers won three league matches in October and posted three wins in Europe. Arfield, who turned 32 on Sunday, scored for Rangers in their UEFA Europa League qualifying match on Oct. 1. Rangers added to their league lead with a win Nov. 1 Arfield has won 19 caps

Christine Sinclair is playing well for the Portland Thorns.

for Canada. How many more remains to be seen with Rangers boss Steven Gerrard hinting his

midfielder may opt to focus on club football. “I think we arguably had the midfielder in form in the league in Scott Arfield, who thankfully doesn’t go on international duty any more and we can keep an eye on him here and he can train with us,’’ Gerrard told Rangers TV last month. Sinclair scored the tying goal for Portland in a 1-1 draw with the Utah Royals on Oct. 3 and had both goals in a 2-1 victory over the OL Reign that sealed the title on Oct. 10. It was Sinclair’s fourth league crown in eight years with Portland. Sinclair led the Fall Series in scoring with six goals in four matches. Since the NWSL started in 2013, the 37-year-old from Burnaby is tied for second in all-time league scoring with 58 goals in 147 matches.

ravellers flock to Rotorua — with good reason. It’s the hub to one of the most active geothermal areas in

the world. The “hard-boiled-egg” smell around town is a reminder of the hydrogen sulphide associated with geothermal activity, but the sights are worth occasional nose wrinkling. The famed Pohutu Geyser is at the southern edge of town in Te Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve. We wait before a gigantic mound of rock with small spurts of steam escape from large central crevices. Pohutu erupts on average, 20 times a day. Mother Nature gives a warning signal in that the nearby smaller Prince of Wales Feathers geyser spews its scalding water first…and it does just that with a startling whoosh. Within minutes the ground rumbles and the mighty Pohutu sends voluminous columns of water higher and higher with firehose force until it reaches heights of 30 metres. Mega-gallons of spray glint in the sun, then fall in scalding cascades over the edge of the rocky mound. The drama lasts a breathtaking 15 minutes before the Pohutu giant is spent…for now. It’s time to learn about the first peoples to settle New Zealand — the Maori — at the Reserve’s weaving and wood carving schools — followed by an evening cultural show of song and dance. Maori women swing poi (balls on strings) with great finesse, and the men’s “haka” warrior dance is a roaring success with its resounding chants, vigorous movements and facial distortions of bulging eyes and protruding tongues. Early the next morning we aim our rental car toward Rotorua

RICK BUTLER PHOTO Pohutu Geyser is a geyser in the Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley, Rotorua, in the North Island of New Zealand. Pohutu means “big splash” or “explosion.” The main geyser of the area, and the largest in New Zealand, it spurts up to 20 times per day.

District’s Wai-O-Tapu for the 10:15 a.m. eruption of Lady Knox Geyser. How does this occur at the same time daily? Well, at this site nature has a helping hand from Fred, the park ranger, who pours a little bag of organic soap into its funnel-like opening. He explains, “The soap breaks the surface tension of cooler water in the geyser’s upper chamber so that it mixes with the hot water below, releasing it to shoot to the

surface.” The Lady Knox bubbles and froths, erupting to a height of 12 metres — a bit less dramatic than Pohutu. But Wai-O-Tapu is not called the “Thermal Wonderland” for naught. It covers 18 square kilometres of collapsed craters from volcanic activity eons ago. Champagne Pool and Artist’s Palette are perfect monikers for the bubbling 100°C pools, steaming fumaroles and patches of dynamic

red, green, yellow, orange, white and black produced by different mineral elements. Spectacular. The next day’s two-hour scenic drive is through the Waitomo District of verdant valleys and corn fields with grazing sheep and cattle. It boggles my mind knowing that underneath these hills are 300 known limestone caves. We arrive at the Waitomo Visitor’s Centre to see some caves open for public viewing.

given a lesson on the life cycle of the glowworm (arachnocampa luminosa). The female lays around 120 eggs, which hatch into larvae. The larvae build nests and put down sticky lines to trap insects for food, emitting a light from their tail to attract their prey (this bioluminescence is a reaction between chemicals given off by the glowworm and oxygen in the air). After nine months in this pupae stage they morph into adults whose only function is mating and egg laying for survival of the species. Climbing into a boat with our guide and 20 other enthusiasts, we silently drift into the dark hollows of the cave, our attentions glued to the mesmerizing Milky Way of millions of miniscule lights on the lofty roof. Alas, no photos are permitted. Cavernous Ruakuri Cave is next. We follow our guide Angus, down a spiral ramp dotted with amber lights akin to alien orbs, taking us 15-metres below ground. A vast subterranean world coloured in hues of pale yellow and soft gold spreads before us. Stalactites hang en mass from ceilings, stalagmites rise like sentinels from the cave floor, some meeting in the middle to form columns. Gigantic limestone “curtains” become translucent veils when our guide holds his headlamp behind them. Underground rivers roil and dash against rocks for an eerie echoing symphony. Near the end of the 1.6 kilometre walk we pass a sacred burial ground of the Maori. A stone corridor takes us back to the spiral walkway to climb out from the depths and into the halogen sun, hyped by our combined Sci-fi and Indiana Jones experience. We leave New Zealand’s North Island wowed by its marvels. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent travel article syndicate. For more information, go online to travelwriterstales.com.

In Memoriam

In Loving Memory of Lillian Maskell

Born John Frederick Dunlop to John and Rosella Dunlop, everybody knew him as Jack. He was raised in Kamloops, where he fell head over heels for his wife, Wendy. Jack and Wendy met on a day spent at Riverside Park with mutual friends. Jack playfully tossed Wendy in the river, and unbeknownst to him, she could not swim! He rescued her, becoming her hero, and so their story began. Not long after, the couple had their children, Haleen, John and Andrew. Jack lived by the notion that you “have to hold on to your kids,” making a point to hug them each day, ask, “did I tell you how much I love you today?” Jack was a businessman through and through. He started his first business at the age of 5, renting comic books to his friends. Jack was one to dive into any business venture he could, but the two most significant to him and his family were Automart in Kamloops and Neville Crosby in Vancouver. Jack’s lifetime business associate Bob has also been a valued friend to the entire family. In his younger years, you would have found Jack riding his bike up to Paul Lake with his lifelong friends, Bill, Frank and Dave. They built multiple cabins at the lake and the group carried much of the supplies they needed all the way there on their bikes. Jack had a reputation for helping anyone in need, whether a neighbour, organization, or fellow small business owner. He volunteered with the Kamloops Lions Club, Rotary Clubs of Kamloops and Vancouver, the YWCA, the Kerrisdale Lawn Bowling Club, the Vancouver Curling Club, and the United Church’s Camp Grafton. He was also integral in keeping the Kamloops Wildlife Park afloat during hard financial times. An original member of the Kamloops Rube band, Jack enjoyed playing his trombone and marching in many different bands. He frequently reminisced about his trip to Holland with the BC Regimental Band to commemorate Canada’s contribution to the liberation of Holland after WWII. Never a guy to shy away from a good meal, Jack loved milkshakes, malts, and trips to Wendy’s for a chocolate frosty with his wife, Wendy. He will be greatly missed at family meals by: his wife of 62 years, Wendy; his daughter Haleen Johnston (Ian), sons John (Gina), and Andrew (Lisa); his granddaughters Sarah Johnston Giuliany (Ryan), Genevieve Johnston Simpson (John), and Abby Dunlop; and his great grandson Kieran Giuliany. Jack also leaves his sister Marianne Parlee (Arnold) and nephew Michael. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Prostate Cancer Foundation BC, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada. A family interment will take place at Hillside Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed at: www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Edwin “FASTEDDY” Bond Edwin “FASTEDDY” Bond passed away at the time of his choosing, surrounded by the family he loved so much, in his own home on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at the age of 77 years.

In our home she is fondly remembered, Sweet memories cling to her name, Those who loved her in life sincerely, Still love her in death just the same. We love and miss you forever... Henry, Karl, Hilda and families

Four years have past The loss of you is felt every day. Learning to live without you is a never ending battle. Your Family misses your presence every day.

Your missed and Loved so much. Love Auntie Angie and Your Family xoxo

Lovingly remembered by his wife Corry, his kids Timia, Andrea, Sylvia and Edwin, sons-in-law Dan and Mike, and grandkids Andrew, Victoria, Jacob, Ryan, Nicholas and Olivia. FASTEDDY was first and foremost a loving husband, and the best dad and grandpa we could ask for. Always willing to lend a hand, create a unique solution, or share a joke, he was a kind, loyal, gentle, and giving soul to all who knew him. His huge laugh and love of life will be missed by all. There will be no formal service, by request, as FASTEDDY was able to say goodbye to most of his family and friends himself. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

She was very active in the Girl Guide movement, St. Hildaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church, the 4-H Club and many other Savona institutions. In addition, she enjoyed wildflowers, bird watching and fishing on Tunkwa Lake. In later years she and George enjoyed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;snowbirdâ&#x20AC;? lifestyle in Yuma, AZ with golfing and attendance at pre-season baseball games being a regular part of their activities.

Lorraine Elgie It is with deep sorrow and sadness that we announce the passing of our dear and wonderful loved one, Lorraine Elgie, wife to Fred. Lorraine passed peacefully Wednesday, October 28th, 2020, in Kamloops, BC, just 11 days shy of her and Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 65th wedding anniversary. She was 85.

Lorraine was quite athletic in her lifetime as a member of the Kamloops Curling Club, Kamloops Golf & Country Club, Sherwood Park Ladies Curling Club, The Belvedere Golf and Country Club and The Dunes. Her illustrious curling resume included a notable Alberta Senior Ladies Curling Championship in 1986. She also succeeded in golf, swinging her way to a few club championships. Her natural swing, rhythm and follow-through were top-shelf. While growing up in Ashcroft, BC she was active in high school track and field, badminton, basketball, tennis and was very good and needless to say, very competitive. Her and Fred were truly childhood sweethearts when they met in Ashcroft and married in 1955. She devoted herself to being a good wife, mother and grandmother. You could always find her and Fred in the stands, on the field, walking the golf course, or in the curling club cheering on and supporting her family and grandsons at games or practises for hockey, soccer, football, baseball, archery and the theatre. Whatever path they chose in life, she was their biggest cheerleader. She will be missed. She was One of the Good Ones! Our family would like to thank the staff and caregivers of the Kamloops Seniors Village, especially Martin, for their diligent care and love given to Lorraine. Lorraine was predeceased by her brothers Jack Kirkpatrick and Allan Fooks, and parents Rita and Maynard Fooks. In light of the Covid pandemic, a small private family gathering will be held at a later date. Please consider a donation to the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society of Canada, in Lorraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

You took a part of me And for help I daily pray. But when God sent you to me He never said that you were mine, That I could keep you always â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Only borrowed for a time. Now, Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called you home, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sad and I shed tears. Yet Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad He loaned you to me And we had these many years.

Aloyious Florian Hartman (Lou) December 11, 1932 - October 29, 2020

Dad was born on December 11, 1932 at 6:30 in the morning. At least thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tell the many health care providers who asked him over the years - he was always trying to get a smile. Passing away peacefully in hospice at the age of 87, he was predeceased by his second wife Delcy in 2017. Dad was a cancer warrior who gave cancer a hell of a fight for over a decade and beat the odds many times. Sadly, it was his heart that was no longer able to carry on the fight. Dad was born and raised on the family farm in Kelfield, Saskatchewan. He was the 9th of 11 children born to Leo and Adelaide Hartman. He is survived by five siblings: Bertha, Adelaide, Leo, Edwin and Eileen. Dad left the farm and moved to Edmonton as a young man where he became a firefighter and carpenter. It was in Edmonton that he met and married our mother Anne. Together they had five children: Marcel (Shelly), Murray (Zhanna), Lisa, Leandra (Randy) and Kelly. Plus a legacy of grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Ted, Jake & Rowan Clancy; Dean & Kaileb Hartman; Derek Blackman, Ilya Solonin; Kevin & Brett Giolma; Dean (Amanda), Maelle & Liam Robinson; Jennifer (Kyle), Reid & Kaylee MacMurchy; Melissa, Kayla & Amanda Hamer-Jackson; Warren & Darius Hartman & Elijah Vanryn; Nathan, Leo & Sophie Hartman & Lily Pennell; Quintin; John & Christine Hartman. It was by chance on a family vacation camping overnight in Valemount that Dad fell in love with the village in a valley amongst beautiful mountains. He moved our family to Valemount in 1969 and remained there for 50 wonderful years until health issues forced him to relocate to Kamloops. Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy in Valemount can be seen in multiple houses he built, the Hartman Trailer Park, the hockey and curling arenas and the Legion where he volunteered many hours and built the addition. But most people will remember Dad for his love of music and his beautiful violin skills which he taught himself to play by ear from listening to songs on the radio. He played for many years with the Valemount Old Timers. In addition to music Dad was an amazing dancer whose dance card was always full. He taught ballroom dance lessons with Delcy to grad students and coached hockey throughout the years. Dad was an avid gardener who produced wonderful vegetables and some of the biggest cabbage and carrots that you can imagine. From the garden to the kitchen Dad would cook delicious meals and always enjoyed sharing his culinary skills especially on special occasions where turkey dinners were the norm. If you were lucky you were treated to his homemade perogies. Dad was a hard worker, generous, kind, very honest and modest. He had a wry sense of humour and loved to tease and charm his way into your heart. Most of all he was a fantastic father who guided us with wisdom and by example. His biggest attribute was his unconditional love of his children which was tested on more than one occasion. We would like to extend our gratitude to the dedicated staff at RIH Cancer Clinic, who provided such wonderful care to our father over the years. Also, to Chartwell Ridgepointe for making Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time there meaningful with music, laughter, companionship, and compassion. A celebration of life will be at a later date. Condolences may be expressed at: www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightening they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.           And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height,                Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. by Dylan Thomas

Deny me not one ďŹ nal gift For all who come to see A single lasting proof that says I loved... & you loved me. by DJ Kramer

Gary â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pepeâ&#x20AC;? Oscar LeComte On October 24, 2020, Gary â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pepeâ&#x20AC;? Oscar Le Comte began his eternal Harley ride. Born on November 21, 1945, to Joe and Barbara LeComte, Pepe was the middle of 3 children. He spent his childhood between Lower Mainland, BC and England, before the family settled in North Kamloops. In his childhood Pepeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for machines was born. Pepe loved taking things apart and putting them back together to learn how they worked. He began by taking apart and putting back together his first bicycle at around 6 years old; which later led to doing the same with motorcycles and anything that needed fixing. Pepe married Lynette Johnson in 1967 and went on to have two daughters, Michelle and Sarah. The family moved around BC, settling in Prince George for many years, where they remained until they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand the cold any longer and moved south to Salmon Arm, and eventually back to Kamloops. Pepe was a loving father and tried to make everyday fun. He loved to build zip lines, snow forts, bonfires, and have epic elastic band fights. He often shared wisdom and life lessons; he showed every day what unconditional love looked like. Pepe was a Boilermaker by trade for 35+ years, and a proud union man. He loved teaching others to weld and welded everything from artistic treasures to adaptive devices for kids in his spare time. A man that insisted on living life on his own terms, Pepeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for drawing, painting, riding and building Harley Davidson motorcycles, as well as sharing music and jokes, was well known among his vast number of friends and family. His outgoing and welcoming nature, humour, generosity, forgiveness, and loyalty was freely given to all those that knew him. Pepe would give you the shoes off his feet and the food off his table if you needed it. He loved being retired and sharing a meal, or a tea with pie/ cookies, while visiting friends and family. Pepe is survived by his daughters Michelle and Sarah (Brett Candido); lifelong friend and mother to his children Lynette (Wayne); sister Jill Rabbit, and brother Paul (Joanne); many nieces, nephews, cousins, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;adoptedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; children, and an extensive network of close friends spread across BC and the world. Due to the pandemic, a party celebrating Pepeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing life will be held once we can all gather safely. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local food bank.

Fond memories linger every day, Remembrance keeps them near.

October 30, 1934 - October 16, 2020

December 15, 1942 - October 24, 2020

Mom passed away after a short illness due to failing health. Born in Williams Lake daughter of Emil and Christine Buchholtz, greatgranddaughter of William Pinchbeck, the man who donated the Stampede Grounds to the City of Williams Lake.

Dad is survived by his daughter Kelly, and the four grandchildren he adored Jadie, Shae Lyn, Koda Bear, and Jackson as he called them who all have good manners mostly because of how important that was to their much loved Papa. Dad was the oldest of four siblings and is survived by his brother Bub, and sisters Charlotte and Deed, as well as many in-laws, nieces and nephews that he loved. Predeceased by his True Love, his wife Jackie and his beloved son Billy, as well as his parents Laura and Bill and brother-in-law Larry. Dad grew up in Surrey, he recently told me about how he rode his Norton Motorcycle to Tijuana, Mexico as a teen .He met mom in Hedley where she lived next door to his grandparents. We lived in Vancouver where he worked in sawmills and then moved to Kamloops in 1976 where he worked at Tranquille, and then managed a group home in Iqaluit, when they returned to Kamloops he was a residence worker for Thompson. He had many people that he met through work who respected and cared about him , your kind words have meant so much. It was hard for him to reach out but that was no reflection on how he felt about people. Dad was a talented musician playing the accordion at a young age, as well as the organ and guitar and the piano very well to my surprise. I found this out when he sat down at an outside piano on the streets of downtown Kamloops a few years ago, and played while we were going to an appointment. I remember that day so fondly because he was so lighthearted. Life after losing his wife and then son was very difficult for dad. He had a hard time finding peace. It was a privilege to be his daughter, I was so proud of who he was. A good man who knew adversity and how to make you feel better on your worst day. I watched while he called a homeless man to his truck to give him a pack of cigarettes and 20 dollars saying “have a good day Guy.” That’s who he was. His granddaughter Shae pointed out: “He had an intuitive read on people, he didn’t realize the impact his quiet wisdom had on the people around him.”

Survived by eldest sister Winnifred, and youngest brother Terry, her five children Charmaine Martin , Randy Walters, Wendy Williams (Bob), Aaron MacNeill (Janet), Dale MacNeill, six grandchildren and six greatgrandchildren, one step-grandchild Sylvie Chartrand, who along with moms children, was with her to her last moments. Predeceased by her parents, sister Sybil and brother Carl. Fond childhood memories include riding her horse to Chimney Lake in the summer and starting the fire in the kitchen stove to melt the ice off of the wash water so everyone could get ready for school. Not sure how they commuted to school in those day, but no doubt the trip was uphill both ways... Mom enjoyed many trips with her sister Win, and children Wendy, Aaron and Dale, and many family camping trips with Randy and her other sons, including a recent trip to Yellowstone. She also went on many trips to the US with family and friends, and even on her own until another lady ran a stop sign and totalled her car. She had an adventurous spirit working in Diamond Drill camps with her second husband James MacNeill. As a Prep cook then crew manager at a cruise ship line hotel near the Alaska Border, and at a house restoration company in Kamloops. Quickly earning respect for her hard work, and sense of humour, she easily made friends of her coworkers of any age. She will be dearly missed by her family, lifelong friends, and the best neighbours ever, Brenda and Glen. Love you Mom. Rest in peace.

He was cool, and if you weren’t in his opinion you probably knew it. He was a bad ass till the end, telling it like it was, living life on his terms. I called him my favourite Senior Delinquent and he was proud of that because he knew it was true.

Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

Footprints

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two set of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to followed you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.”

Mr. Carlyle “Lyle” Ithamer Richet We are saddened to announce the passing of Lyle Richet on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at the Trinity Hospice. Lyle leaves behind his loving wife, Rose and their children: Darlene (Michael) Jones of Williams Lake, Larry (Sherree) of 100 Mile House, Mike (Nancy) of Merritt, Joanne (Don) Denton of Victoria and grandchildren Danielle Pronick, Krista Havey, Christopher Richet, Josh and Ben Richet, Nicholas, Spencer and Cole Denton, as well as twelve great-grandchildren. Lyle was born on March 15, 1926 in Benito, Manitoba. His family moved to Prince George when he was a child. It was there he grew up and met and married Rosalie Yaron in 1945. Together they moved their family to Kamloops in 1967, where Lyle continued his career as a conductor with CN Rail. Lyle enjoyed curling, golfing and after retirement RVing with Rose to various places in BC and Alberta to visit family and frequent trips into the United States. Rose and Lyle have been married for close to 75 years. A private family Interment will take place in Hillside Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed at: www. firstmemorialkamloops.com

The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.” Margaret Fishback Powers

Cherrie Ethel White 1936 - 2020

With profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our loving mother, Cherrie Ethel White (Black), on October 27th, 2020. Cherrie was born to Robert and Emily (Russell) Black on January 14th, 1936, in North Vancouver. She was predeceased in 2014 by the love of her life Rex White, her husband of 62 years, their 2 daughters and a son, one great-granddaughter, and her sister Eileen Miltimore. Mom will be dearly missed by her 6 children, Debbie, Robert (Nancy), Trevor (Debbie) Rick (Mary), Loralee (Theo Huisman), and Lynne (Tony Milos), 16 grandchildren, and 18 beautiful great-grandchildren who touched her heart deeply. Mom loved babies and basked in the marvel of each new one that joined her family. She will be missed by her sister, Colleen Cowell, with whom she shared a special bond. We will lovingly remember our mother for her strength, grace, sense of humour, love of music and reading, and her amazing cooking and baking. The family thanks mom’s caregivers at Royal Inland Hospital and Marjorie Willoughby Hospice. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the BC Children’s Hospital. The family hopes to be able to hold a memorial for mom in Spring/Summer 2021. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com
