Judge to TMX: Hand over documents

GOOD KNIGHT

TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Ken Legge was in his early 20s and on a gunner ship off the coast of France on D-Day in June 1944, helping the Allies lay the groundwork that led to victory in the Second World War. The 97-year-old resident of Berwick on the Park was recently awarded by the French government the rank of Knight of the French National Order of the Legion of Honour, France’s highest national recognition. Read more about Legge in our special Remembrance Day section, which begins on page B1.

A Kamloops judge has ruled in favour of a group of outspoken First Nations protestors opposed to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, ordering the Crown corporation to turn over security correspondence leading to a 2018 altercation on the campus of Thompson Rivers University. Three members of the Tiny House Warriors (THW) protest group are slated to stand trial next week in Kamloops provincial court on charges of assault, causing a disturbance and mischief stemming from a confrontation outside a high-level meeting on Dec. 10, 2018, helmed by former Supreme Court of Canada Justice Frank Iacobucci and including Trans Mountain, Natural Resources Canada and a number of area First Nations chiefs. The meeting took place in rented space on TRU’s campus and was not a university event. Nicole Manuel, Chantel Manuel and Isha Jules were charged following the confrontation, which included THW members, police and security officials. Court has heard members of the THW spilled red paint on the ground and stormed the meeting, breaking a microphone and throwing a paintsoaked scarf at a First Nations chief. They are also alleged to have engaged in physical altercations with security. Defence lawyer Joe Killoran has suggested the altercation was a result of over-policing and a bias among

Mounties and security officials. According to Killoran, police and security were convinced the THW protestors were a threat before the confrontation took place. Killoran applied last week to Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame, asking for an order requiring Trans Mountain to turn over documents relating to the THW and its members, suggesting the correspondence may shed light on alleged racism and bias toward the group. With the start of the trial a week away, Frame delivered her decision on Monday (Nov. 9), ordering Trans Mountain turn over a thumb drive containing surveillance documents and memos relating to the three accused from company security officers Peter Haring, Tim Neuls and Pier-Oliver Poulin. Frame said she plans to review the documents on Wednesday, Nov. 11, and hand over any relevant items to defence lawyers. “All that may be relevant is whether these members of the security detail received instructions to treat these applicants [THW] as dangerous,” she said. Haring, Neuls and Poulin are each expected to testify at trial next week. Haring and Neuls are former RCMP officers employed by Trans Mountain, while Poulin has worked in the past as a security officer for several federal agencies. In court documents, Haring and Poulin are named as complainants in assault charges against the accused.

The Kamloops Brain Injury Association is no stranger to the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund as 2020 marks the third consecutive year the group has been one of the five organizations receiving funding. Executive director Dave Johnson said the money is very helpful for the organization because it is funding without restrictions that can be used wherever the group sees fit. “We can put this where we need it the most,” he said. “It allows us to fill in the gaps.” And there may be more gaps than normal in 2020 and 2021 as the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the kind of fundraising projects the KBIA has been able to put together. For example, at the start of the pandemic, the organization was planning a garden tour fundraiser that couldn’t go ahead because pandemic-related

restrictions were implemented. And though the switch of the annual golf tournament to a virtual one was mostly successful, the organization was not able to raise as much through raffles as in years past. “Survivors would have a book of tickets or two and go out and sell them,” he said. “It was all dependent on doing it in person.” In addition, the KBIA’s ability to work up close and personally with clients have been affected by the pandemic. The organization tried to switch some of its group activities to Zoom with mixed success, as some clients don’t have the best computer setups or strong access to the Internet. The Kamloops Brain Injury Association advocates for and provides specialized programs to survivors of acquired brain injuries and facilitates education and awareness in the community. Because staff have been working more remotely in 2020, the agency is

considering upgrading its database system with some money from the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund. The system is old and doesn’t support access via the Internet, something that has become more vital this past year. Johnson said that in spite of the troubles this year has brought, there’s some positivity on its way in December. There was some concern about whether the organization would be able to hold its annual Christmas party until members of Daybreak Rotary reached out with a suggestion. “What if they [Rotary members] make dinner and deliver it to the survivors and we try to have a group Zoom and do karaoke then?” Johnson said. Thanks to Rotary, the KBIA will be closing out 2020 on a positive note. “We’re going to be able to celebrate together again,” he said. “It is really nice to get that extra bit of support.” For more information on the Kamloops Brain Injury Association, call 250-372-1799 or email kbia@kbia. ca.

A Kamloops city councillor is lauding the province for putting in place regional restrictions to curb spread of the novel coronavirus. Coun. Mike O’Reilly said more has been learned about the virus and, with contact tracing, the province has been able pinpoint where cases are popping up in British Columbia. “It’s a data-driven decision that’s very clear that the cases are in the Lower Mainland, specifically,” O’Reilly said. “Not to say that they’re not here, but the majority of them aren’t. If we were to remove Kamloops from the equation, it just doesn’t make sense for a business in Surrey to have the same restrictions as a business in Fort St. James.” Over the weekend, new provincial health orders restrict social interactions and indoor fitness for residents in the Lower Mainland for the next two weeks. Residents in the Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal health

City councillor likes regionspecific COVID-19 orders

• INTRODUCTORY CONSULTATION • CREDITOR PROTECTED INVESTMENTS • RETIREMENT & ESTATE PLANNING • LIFE & MORTGAGE INSURANCE • CRITICAL ILLNESS INSURANCE • DISABILITY COVERAGE • HEALTH, DENTAL & TRAVEL INSURANCE

regions cannot have social gatherings of any size with anyone other than those in their immediate households. Party buses and group limos have also been ordered to stop operating and wedding and funeral receptions are prohibited. In addition, indoor fitness activities, such as spin and dance classes and indoor sports, as well as travel for the sports, are also on hold. The orders were announced this past Saturday and come amidst a second wave of COVID19, with near daily record case counts in the province, the majority of which have come out of the Fraser Health region. On Saturday and Sunday, there were 998 new COVID-19 cases recorded in B.C, more than 700 in Fraser Health and 28 in Interior Health. Throughout the pandemic, most restrictions put in place have impacted residents provincewide. Meanwhile, with cases locally recently announced at the McDonald’s outlet in Walmart and at the Royal Inland Hospital patient-care tower construction

site, restrictions in the Lower Mainland now act as a warning sign for the Kamloops area and O’Reilly is asking residents to remain diligent. “Stay cautious, wear a mask when possible, if you can, and respect social distancing,” he said. NUMBER CRUNCHING O’Reilly said businesses have been struggling financially amid the pandemic and have been watching the numbers, concerned work they have done in order to create safe environments could be in vain. On Monday, Premier John Horgan hinted at the potential to go back to earlier more severe restriction phases, should case counts in B.C. continue to spike. Horgan added that testing in the province will increase in the province. O’Reilly said businesses need stability and he wants to see phases tied to positivity rates, rather than case counts, which he called “subjective.” “That caught my eye as a business owner,” he said. “That raised a bit of an alarm bell today.”

Seven infected so far in outbreak at Royal Inland Hospital construction site MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

The number of cases involved in an outbreak at the patient-care tower construction site at Royal Inland Hospital remained at seven as of KTW press deadline on Tuesday. The source of the original infected worker is believed to have been in Alberta or the Lower Mainland as crews travelled to Kamloops for the job. “There is no evidence of any hospital staff or patient exposures related to this outbreak at this time,” Interior Health said in a statement. “This outbreak is limited to the PCT construction site — hospital operations are not impacted. It is important that anyone requiring medical care feels confident in coming to RIH.” Contact tracing on confirmed cases is ongoing. All cases and direct contacts are self-isolating.

The health authority is working with project general contractor EllisDon to try to minimize the risk of additional exposures. “Based on an IH environmental health inspection of the site, IH’s medical health officer has determined that appropriate safety protocols are in place and the risk of any further exposures at the worksite is low,” the statement reads. No work stoppage has been ordered. On Nov. 2, project manager EllisDon closed the construction site to conduct what it called “a deep clean” of all outdoor and indoor spaces following positive cases of COVID-19 being confirmed last week in a work crew. The initial case was reported some time last week and that person’s direct contacts all went into isolation, according to Interior Health. Further testing of those people while in isolation determined them positive

for COVID-19. EllisDon, however, did not shut down the work site until Nov. 2, reopening it on Nov. 3 following the clean. The health authority initially said it was not classifying the exposures as an outbreak, saying it was limited to a crew of workers that did not mingle with others on site. It has not specified if the seven cases were all from that one work crew. A worker at the site contacted KTW and asked why, with more than 300 workers on the site and tradespeople sharing hallways, elevators and lunchrooms, health officials are not testing all 300-plus workers. Interior Health said testing is recommended for symptomatic people as evidence shows testing those who are asymptomatic generally results in a negative test. The health authority hasn’t disclosed how many workers from the construction site have been tested for COVID-19.

THE MANDATE OF THE B.C. NDP

T

he weekend tally of mail-in ballots not only confirmed election night data, but added to the B.C. NDP’s impressive majority in the legislature. Final count has the NDP at 57 seats, the B.C. Liberals at 28 seats and the B.C. Greens at two seats, pending one judicial recount that could add a Green or subtract a Liberal from the totals. Now that the results are final, it is clear the New Democrats have a clear mandate — despite voter turnout being abysmal at barely more than 50 per cent. Then again, what can we expect during a pandemic? It is also clear that B.C. is a province divided, with NDP support mainly in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island and Liberal backing primarily in the Interior. What the NDP needs to do — indeed, is obligated to do — is reach out to those who did not vote for the party and show that it is a party for all British Columbians, not only for the higher-population centres that turned orange on the map. That outreach can start right here in Kamloops with Royal Inland Hospital. Yes, the city has benefited from a massive ongoing expansion approved by the former Liberal government and continued by the NDP, but Premier John Horgan doubled down during the campaign, saw his party had a chance in Kamloops-North Thompson and pledged to add a cancer care centre to the hospital within this next mandate. That would mean patients need not travel to Kelowna or Vancouver for radiation and other treatment as of 2024 at the latest. There were other promises made (oh, so many) during the election campaign and it is incumbent upon Opposition MLAs across B.C. to hold the government accountable for following through on those pledges. After all, Kamloopsians know better than most how it feels to have a promise yanked away and handed to a rival city.

Edifying election education

A

lthough I can find them stressful, I must admit I love elections. I love watching democracy in action and being reminded the true power lies in the collective choice of voters and not in those they elect. I worry a lot, though, about party politics. I wish we were better at expressing our differences of opinion with respect and civility. I wish we did not diminish others personally when we disagree. And I wish we put a much greater emphasis on finding common ground. This is why I love being a city councillor. Obviously, council members have differences in opinion. Yet our culture, built up over decades, is to look for ways to collaborate and to not make our differences personal. We act as nine individuals contributing to a team approach to representing Kamloops citizens. I’ve run in five civic elections, one federal election, four elections for boards of local government associations and two elections to university bodies. All these experiences have led me to certain beliefs about election candidates. It’s important to have solid name recognition, to meet as many voters as you can, to work as hard as any other candidate and to be authentic to yourself. I also think, more than ever, it’s important to be bold. While in the past, electoral fortune may have come to people who tried to upset as few people as possible, today’s voter

ARJUN SINGH

View From

CITY HALL seems to favour candidates who have a strong set of values and ideas. It is important to have optimism and hope, especially once elected. Negative campaigning may work, but it’s a souldestroying foundation on which to build elected service. It is easy to tear things down. It’s hard and fulfilling to build people up. An important note about those who help run and work in Kamloops civic elections — in all the elections in which I have participated, I have been incredibly impressed by the integrity and professionalism of these amazing citizens. Today, when I look around our physically distanced, makeshift council table in the Valley First Lounge at Sandman Centre, I see valued colleagues and friends. Moreover, though, I try to think about the people who voted for my colleagues in 2018 and the greater number of people we collectively represent.

Elections, especially federal and provincial campaigns, can be quite nasty. And that nastiness can find its way into how citizens look at politicians. I can guarantee you every person I have served with on council wants to do right by the community. Nasty communication, especially immediately after an election can be very off-putting and are often not effective. The pandemic has undoubtedly been tough on many Kamloopsians. City council has been challenged in making big decisions in a fast-changing, uncertain environment without the ability to spend as much time together. I hope we have been up to this challenge. I’m so thankful to city hall staff for their great work supporting council and the community. We are going through a very challenging time right now, but I am confident we will get through it. Voters sometimes make mistakes in who they elect. I think, though, this happens exceedingly rarely. I’ve often marvelled at the diverse, competent groups Kamloops citizens have elected to council. Arjun Singh is a Kamloops councillor. Council columns appear monthly in KTW and online at kamloopsthisweek.com. Singh’s email is asingh@kamloops.ca.

A REMINDER FOR ALL TO ALWAYS ‘SEE THE ABILITY’ Editor: Nov. 7 was the last day of Canadian Down Syndrome Week, a week we were reminded of in a guest column by Dave Ralph, president of the Thompson Nicola Ups and Downs Society, in the the Nov. 4 edition of KTW (‘Down Syndrome Week a chance to remind all to include all’). After the introduction, the next four paragraphs of the column deal entirely with the negative aspects of the “disorder.” Subsequently, the tone of the article becomes much more positive, speaking of support and inclusion. The photo I cherish the most is of our now 16-year-old grandson with Down Syndrome, Iain, in which he is in cross-country ski wear, sporting the sign “See the Ability.” The column mentioned the “unique challenges” for those with an extra 21st chromosome, but any family member of a DS person will tell you of his/her unique attributes. In Iain’s case, it’s his developed upper body strength, suited to the climbing gym and chinup bar. Then there’s the unconditional love and acceptance, his freely given smile and hug that unfailingly greet you at the door. We have learned to see his abilities before his disabilities and celebrate him as a complete and gifted person. How sad that more than 80 per cent of unborn children diagnosed with DS lose their lives through pregnancy termination, never having the chance to bless us with the beauty of their lives. During Canadian Down Syndrome Week, and always, let us uphold all in the DS community, born and yet to be. Tonia Howell Kamloops

CANCER CENTRE CANNOT WAIT Editor: Now that our provincial election is behind us, I’m hoping a certain promise will be kept. The B.C. NDP promised the people of Kamloops a full-service cancer centre 30 years ago. They promised it again during this past election campaign — only this time, they mentioned it

was in their 10-year plan. Premier John Horgan then said it would be realized during this mandate. People that have, or will have, cancer cannot afford to wait and the promise must be kept. In order to get that done, I hope Kamloops B.C. Liberal MLAs Todd Stone and Peter Milobar can demonstrate leadership and get all candidates from all the

STANDARD TIME NEEDS TO BE ELIMINATED Editor: Re: Steve Burke’s letter of Nov. 4 (‘Here is the ultimate time change compromise’), in which he made a suggestion that rather than continuing the biannual tradition of moving the clocks back and forth by an hour, we settle on a half-hour and finally end the practice.

The one correction I would like to draw attention to was that Burke said we change the clocks every six months. In, fact we are on Standard Time for a little more than four months. We are on Daylight Saving Time for almost eight months. In 2005, then-U.S. president

George W. Bush implemented the Energy Policy Act to extend Daylight Saving Time by a month, starting in 2007. Therefore, our bodies are now used to being on Daylight Saving Time the majority of the year, so it won’t take much adjusting when Standard Time is eliminated.

WATCH YOUR VALUABLES WHILE AT ROYAL INLAND Editor: I recently spent time as a patient in Royal Inland Hospital and had a negative experience about which I want to warn others who may spend time in the facility. I shared a room with another patient and got to know him a bit — his name, his hometown and other facts. One day, I was taken from the room to another part of

the hospital for tests. When I returned to my room, I found that $115 had gone missing from the purse, which was next to my bed. I asked my roommate point blank if he had taken my money and he admitted to doing so, adding that he would pay me back later. It was theft, pure and simple, and I reported it to the nurse in charge. Unfortunately, my hos-

pital roommate denied stealing my money when asked by nursing staff, so it became a he said/ she said situation and there was nothing more that could be done. That $115 is not going to make or break me, but there are many other people in Kamloops — perhaps even patients at RIH — for whom $115 is the difference between paying the rent and being on the street or the

MAKE MASK-WEARING MANDATORY Editor: I have voiced my opinion regarding mandatory usage of masks in public places to our public health officer, to our minister of health, to our premier and to Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone. I am concerned that our governments, both federal and provincial, seem to, in many ways, mirror policy with our neighbours to the south. It would be encouraging to see our leaders be courageous enough to make sensible, effective decisions for the public safety of British Columbians, decisions based on scientific data and not politics. Why is policy in B.C. not more like that in South Korea, where the government mandates mask-wearing in public places for the entire country?

South Korea is considered to be one of the more successful countries in the world in managing the COVID-19 crisis. Mandatory usage in public places would be far more effective in our country than in the United States. Canadians generally tend to be able to separate political ideology from public responsibility. Acceptance here would be greater and better preemptive measures will only improve the collective prognosis. Our governments need to be politically courageous and proactive. It is very clear that our geographic proximity to the U.S. and trans-border commerce is a biological vulnerability to the virus, leading to case increases in B.C. and Canada. Masks are scientifically proven to reduce transmission. Many people in our community wear masks already, but there

Editor: The debate about what to do on Halloween went back and forth in my house as my seven-year-old daughter wanted nothing more than to buy a costume and go trick or treating. As a parent, I felt so torn and didn’t know which way to go. I respected how exciting Halloween can be for a seven-year-old. On the other hand, the health concern with respect to the pandemic was also important to consider. I remember asking myself: How can we make this work

is a significant number of people who won’t if they are not legally mandated to do so. Simply put, our communities will not be adequately protected if the current voluntary philosophy is permitted to continue as is. We need to get ahead of the issue, not react to it, as it perpetuates, which seems to be the “easy” direction our leaders in government and health care choose to follow. I am skeptical that those in government actually bother to engage citizens in dialogue unless their feet are held to the fire. I have not received any response to my query from any of the aforementioned leaders. Daniel Byrne Kamloops

so many people took extra steps in making Halloween a safe and enjoyable experience for my daughter. They had individual bags with candies in them at the end of the driveway, handed out treats with gloves, sent them down chutes from windows and delivered them with tongs. It was amazing to see how

the community can come together when the kids needed it most and make it such an enjoyable and safe experience, instead of just shutting down and turning out the lights. I cannot give enough thanks to the people of Kamloops who came together and made Halloween a safe, fun and happy time for my daughter. We can overcome COVID19 and find ways to be happy and healthy while still enjoying the things we love. Erika Feely Kamloops

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

It was closer than the numbers showed on election night, but Peter Milobar has hung on through counting of mail-in ballots to secure re-election in Kamloops-North Thompson in the 2020 provincial election. Final figures from the count of mail-in ballots show the B.C. Liberal candidate with a 196-vote victory over B.C. NDP candidate Sadie Hunter. Milobar finished with 9,341 votes (41% of the vote), followed by Hunter with 9,145 votes (40% of the vote). On election night, Oct. 24, a total of 16,600 election day and advance voting ballots had been counted, with Milobar holding a 791-vote lead, pending counting of mail-in ballots. Elections BC said there remained 6,332 mail-in ballots to consider. As of the final report, 6,187 of those ballots were added to the tallies. B.C. Green candidate Thomas Martin was third with 2,224 votes (9.8% of the vote), followed by B.C. Conservative candidate Dennis Giesbrecht with 1,928 votes (8.5% of the vote) and Independent Brandon Russell with 149 votes (0.7% of the vote). None of the candidates outside of Milobar and Hunter met the 10 per cent vote threshold to qualify for the $2.50 per vote subsidy.

Liberal candidate Todd Stone won with 13,453 votes (51% of the vote), followed by B.C. NDP candidate Anna Thomas with 8,575 votes (33% of the vote) and B.C. Green candidate Dan Hines with 4,276 votes (16% of the vote). Provincially, the New Democrats will govern British Columbia with 57 of 87 seats in the legislature. The B.C. Liberals won 28 seats, one of which is pending a judicial recount because one race was so close, and the

Greens claimed two seats. West Vancouver-Sea to Sky was projected to be the first Green seat on the Lower Mainland until Liberal incumbent Jordan Sturdy pulled ahead of Jeremy Valeriote by only 41 votes during counting of mail-in ballots to clinch a win.

Who should fund Noble Creek water system upgrade? jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

s the City of Kamloops and farmers in north Westsyde using the Noble Creek water system remain at odds over who should pay for the $14-million worth of irrigation infrastructure upgrades needed, Kamloops This Week sought context to inform the question: Who should pay?

SYSTEM WAS GRANDFATHERED Noble Creek water users have relied on the irrigation system for a long time. The city’s utility service manager, Greg Wightman, said history of irrigation to the Noble Creek area dates back to 1901, when a British company built dams in the Jameson Lake area to provide water to Noble Creek, Westsyde and Brocklehurst, with the intention of selling parcels of land for farming. In 1973, the city inherited the system as part of amalgamation. At that time, the BC Fruitland Irrigation District provided not only irrigation water, but also domestic drinking water. Fast forward to 2010, when the city spent $5.5 million — a portion

of which was covered by grant funding and some of which was funded by a local area service improvement program — to extend its potable drinking water from Kamloops Centre for Water Quality to Westsyde and Noble Creek. The Noble Creek system no longer provided drinking water, but the city continued to operate it for irrigation and stock water, with the system essentially grandfathered in. Today, faced with infrastructure upgrade needs worth $14 million, the city — and, ultimately, Kamloops taxpayers — now face the question of whether to pay for upgrades. Farmers in the area, who have relied on the system, say covering the costs could cost them their livelihoods. OTHER FARMS PAY OWN WAY The city has a responsibility to provide residents with drinking water. However, it does not

have a responsibility to provide irrigation water. Wightman explained the Noble Creek Irrigation System is the only city system that provides agricultural properties with irrigation water. Meanwhile, the area is home to about 26 private irrigation systems. Private systems are owned and operated by individuals or water user communities, which are groups that rely on a water system and own, operate and fund their own systems. For example, the Campbell Creek Water Users Community Association is owned and operated by the Blackwell family, which owns Blackwell Dairy Farm in Barnhartvale. The ThompsonNicola Regional District does not own irrigation water systems. Monte Creek Ranch Winery is situated in the TNRD. Marketing manager Ashley Demedeiros said the winery has its own direct line into the South Thompson River, along with its own pumps and filtration systems. The water provides irrigation to the vineyard, hayfields and livestock. The winery is on the hook to cover any costs to its water system. “We manage all of that ourselves,” Demedeiros said. In addition, the winery also collects rainwater for use around the property. One advantage to private systems is control by water users. Noble Creek water users have disputed the $14-million cost estimate, as reported by the city, calling it a “Cadillac” system. Wightman said cities need to build to certain standards.

INFRASTRUCTURE DEFICITS City of Kelowna utility services manager Kevin Van Vliet said cities do their best to include infrastructure replacement and upgrade costs in utility rates. However, he said many communities across Canada are facing infrastructure deficits, wherein they don’t collect or haven’t yet collected enough from taxpayers to fund renewal of all its infrastructure. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that on the very day Noble Creek water users attended a Kamloops council meeting to oppose a local area service improvement project to upgrade old infrastructure, the city also finalized an asset management plan. “The real lesson — if there is one — is we have to look at how we fund renewal of all of our infrastructure and try to be more sustainably funded, which means paying a little bit more every year and focusing on that renewal,” Van Vliet said. “Every municipality struggles with that. It’s not that Kamloops is not doing a good job. We all have a deficit there, right across Canada.” Kelowna is facing a situation similar to that of Kamloops, having recently inherited a water district from the province. Given provincial funding to improve drinking water, Kelowna simultaneously inherited a 50-year-old irrigation system, for which it had not been preparing to finance. Van Vliet said the city is still trying to figure out how to address that situation, but it is likely water rates will increase “substantially” over the coming decades and the city will probably seek out grant funding, citing a federal agriculture irrigation grant program. Noble Creek water users have criticized Kamloops for not increasing its water rates for several years and have also called on the city to seek out grant funding. Van Vliet also

explained that in the 1960s and 1970s, the government of the day provided grants for farmers to build irrigation infrastructure. However, money was never set aside for fixing it or rebuilding later. With those systems now at the end of their lives, users are faced with a crisis because they can’t grow crops without water and no money has been put aside for replacement. WHAT IS NEXT? A local area service program, which would have seen the city chip in 20 per cent and users pay 80 per cent of the Noble Creek system’s $14-million project costs, was overturned by city council in the face of a potential counter-petition. Average Kamloops households would have had to pay an extra $13 per year for water to pay for the project, while 47 affected property owners would have split the remaining $11 million cost. Water users turned up to a recent city council meeting, telling council they opposed the program. They said they spoke on behalf of 40 of the 47 property owners, suggesting the group could have defeated the project through a counter-petition process that had not yet launched. With the local area service option now seemingly off the table, Wightman said staff will go back to council with more options at an unknown date. Other options include the city paying the entire $14 million, selling the system or decommissioning the system. The first option would appease users, but would result in a hefty increase for Kamloops ratepayers’ water bills. The decision is ultimately political: How much do taxpayers want to subsidize farming? Meanwhile, Wightman said the system is at the end of its life and the longer the city waits, the more the costs are likely to increase.

McDonald’s employee tests positive for COVID-19 JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

An employee at the McDonald’s outlet in Walmart in Kamloops has tested positive for COVID-19, leading to the restaurant to be closed this past Sunday for cleaning and sanitization. The restaurant reopened on Monday, while the Walmart

itself was not closed. According to a McDonald’s spokesperson, on Nov. 8, an employee who works at the Walmart McDonald’s location, at 1055 Hillside Dr. — at Hillside Drive and Notre Dame Drive in Southgate — reported they tested positive for COVID-19. “Out of an abundance of caution, the decision was made to

immediately shut down the restaurant for a thorough cleaning and sanitization by a certified third party,” the McDonald’s spokesperson said. “The restaurant has since reopened this morning and will resume regular business hours.” The spokesperson said all crew members who may have been in close contact with

the infected employee have been asked to self-quarantine until further information is available. The employee worked their last shift on Thursday, Nov. 5, from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Any customers who may have visited the restaurant on Nov. 5 are advised to take directions from the BC Centre for Disease

Control by visiting its website at bccdc.ca. Walmart did not close its store, but company director of corporate affairs Adam Grachnik, in an email to KTW, said COVID19 safety measures continue to be practised. “We’re aware of the positive case with an individual at a thirdparty licensee operating in our Kamloops

store,” Grachnik said. “We’re keeping the individual in our thoughts and wish them a speedy recovery.” Grachnik said safety measures that continue to be taken include: • Increased cleaning throughout the store; • Wellness checks that include a temperature check for all employees at the start

of each shift; • Limiting the number of customers shopping in the store at one time; • Cleaning shopping carts; • Encouraging regular handwashing; • Establishing floor markings and one-way aisles to create physical distancing; • Mandatory masks for customers and employees.

The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association is encouraging residents to wear masks downtown. In a statement this week, and following recommendations from health experts, the association representing downtown businesses said it strongly encourages face coverings at all times downtown, including during indoor activities and also while walking outdoors throughout the downtown area. The message is aimed at both visitors and area employees. “On behalf of Downtown Kamloops, we appreciate your ongoing support and understanding,” the statement reads. “Community commitment and compliance will prevent the spread of COVI-19 and allow businesses to continue operating.” Some businesses require customers to don masks when entering their premises. Late last month, the North Shore Business Improvement Association began urging its member businesses to adopt manadatory mask policies for customers.

Serial masturbator handed probation term TIM PETRUK

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A serial masturbator who exposed himself to a woman in a Kamloops schoolyard has been placed on a year-long probation term. Kenneth Wickstrom pleaded guilty in Kamloops provincial court on Tuesday to one count of committing an indecent act in a public and was sentenced to time served plus probation. He had been in custody for almost seven months. Wickstrom was arrested on April 20 after a woman called police following an incident in the Ralph Bell schoolyard on Valleyview Drive. The woman said

she was walking her dog when a man in shorts lifted his leg and asked her if she could “see it.” Wickstrom, 65, had been facing two other similar allegations, but those charges were stayed on Tuesday. In those instances, he was alleged to have masturbated in front of a woman in Peterson Creek and then in front of two teenaged girls at a downtown restaurant. Wickstrom has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1978, including 14 prior convictions for committing an indecent act in a public place. In 2014, Wickstrom was placed on a lengthy probation term after being busted the previous year

masturbating while sitting at a slot machine in a Langley casino. In 2016, he was sen-

tenced to 12 days in jail after exposing himself on a downtown Kelowna street.

Wickstrom was on probation at the time of the Valleyview incident, stemming

from a January 2019 conviction in Kelowna for committing an indecent act in a pub-

On Tuesday, Mounties said stolen licence plates and insurance decals can now be reported online, joining damage to vehicle or property under $5,000, hit and run to an unoccupied vehicle or property, theft of bicycle or property under $5,000, theft from vehicle under $5,000 and general driving behaviour reports that are not in progress. Crimes reported online must fit the following criteria, police have said: no witnesses or suspects (excluding traffic complaints); no items lost or stolen over $5,000, no damage over $5,000; and no items involving personal identity or firearms. “One of the ways police learn where to concentrate resources is to hear directly from our citizens,” Kamloops RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky said. “Crime reports from the public are an essential part of determining how our policing resources are deployed in the city. These additions to the reporting tool will enhance our service delivery to residents of Kamloops by making it more convenient to report less serious crimes, while allowing police to focus on emergency calls for service.” To report a crime online, go online to kamloops.ca/rcmp and click on the “Report crime online” box.

nearly a decade of service in the City of Kamloops. Adams has spent more than three decades working in fire safety. He was named chief in April 2017, at the age of 50, succeeding retiring chief Dale McLean. Adams grew up in North Vancouver and began working as a firefighter in his hometown in his early 20s, beginning in 1989. In 2009, he took a job as deputy fire chief with the Squamish Fire Department before moving to Kamloops two years later, in 2011, where he was an assistant fire chief from 2011 to 2014 and deputy fire chief from 2014 to 2017. “It’s been a privilege and an honour,” Adams said, noting he works with an “amazing team” in Kamloops Fire Rescue. Adams said he plans to stay in the Kamloops area and take time to spend with family in his retirement.

He said the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult on many people and has provided an opportu-

MIKE ADAMS KFR FIRE CHIEF nity to refocus. Adams — who lives in Heffley Creek with his wife and three kids — said he looks forward to knocking off some items on his bucket list. As for succession planning, Adams said KFR Assistant Chief Steve Robinson will take on the acting chief position until a permanent successor is found. Robinson has been with KFR since 2016. Prior to that, he was assistant chief for the fire service in Surrey.

City council approves changes to fire prevention inspection policy City council has approved changes to its fire prevention inspection policy in light of changes to the Fire Safety Act, which is the provincial legislation guiding inspections of fire hazards. In recent years, the province has worked to modernize safety regulations, including moving toward a risk-based inspection process. According to a city report, inspections had previously been required of all types of occupancy dwellings at least once per year. Properties deemed higher risk will receive more frequent inspections compared to those with little risk, which will be inspected less often or self-inspected. Inspections occur in businesses, multi-family buildings and institutions. The policy does not include residential dwellings.

SD73 looking at Beattie-area issues KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The Kamloops-Thompson school district has drawn up a list of actions it will take in a bid to combat nefarious activity on the Beattie elementary school grounds. Beattie elementary is near the corner of McGill Road and Columbia Street, the intersection from which a series of motels run down Columbia, with some of those motels the focus of police due to various criminal activity in and around the businesses. In October, there were two holdand-secure measures implemented at Beattie due to police operations in the area — one involving a shooting and another concerning a domestic dispute. In neither incident were students or staff in danger, but the hold-and-secure measures needed to be taken in case the situations escalated. (There are differences between a school under lockdown and a school under a hold and secure protocol.Part of a lockdown procedure involves school doors being locked and students hiding under their desks or in other parts of the school and staying away from windows, which are to be shuttered. A hold and secure procedure is different, as classes are allowed to continue as normal inside the school, but the doors are still locked and no one is allowed in or out of the building.) Those two incidents — and ongoing activity, from robberies to stab-

bings to thefts to drug use and vandalism — have prompted the Lower Sahali Community Association and the Beattie parent advisory committee to contact the authorities in an effort to tackle the area’s problems. On Oct. 23, school district staff met with members of the Beattie elementary PAC, Beattie’s principal and representatives of the Kamloops RCMP and the City of Kamloops. Supt. Terry Sullivan said the primary concern is regarding activities on school grounds, particularly when the sun sets, involving drug use and drug paraphernalia being left behind. “More needs to be done to provide a safe and secure environment for students and staff at the school,” Sullivan said. From that meeting came some steps to be taken, with the city already serving nuisance property notices to the problem motels. The school district will also be taking measures, Sullivan said, which include: • Installing LED lights in the back of the building as LED lights are less desirable for undesirables; • Enclosing some spaces at the school, including under stairs; • Installing cameras; • Re-keying the school; • Fixing damage to the property; • Stepping up night patrols by school district security. Trustee John O’Fee called the Oct. 23 discussion “a productive problem-solving meeting.”

Four people are in custody following a reported drive-by shooting at a home in Knutsford on Sunday (Nov. 8). According to Kamloops RCMP Sgt. Jeff Bingley, Kamloops Rural RCMP officers responded to the call in which complainant said he heard one shot, then saw a red Kia be driven from area at a high rate of speed. The complainant was able to note the Kia’s licence plate, which police found was attached to a red Kia Sole that was reported stolen on Nov. 7. Bingley said the vehicle was spotted by police on Hugh Allen Drive in Aberdeen, but the driver refused to stop. Bingley said the Kia was then spotted by police on Hillside Drive North, the road that runs behind Thompson Rivers University, and again the driver refused to stop. Police deployed a spike belt at the bottom of Summit Drive, with the device able to deflate two tires on the Kia.

“Based on the unsafe driving exhibited, police discontinued following this vehicle,” Bingley said. Shortly thereafter, however, the Kia was seen on the north side of the Red Bridge and four people inside ran from the vehicle. Bingley said two people were arrested immediately, with the other two people from the Kia tracked down with the help of a police dog. All four people are in custody as police continue their investigation. Sunday’s shooting was the second incident in which a house in the Kamloops area was targeted. On Oct. 1, shots were fired at a home in North Kamloops, at the three-way stop intersection of Willow Street, Cottonwood Avenue and Renfrew Lane, at about 5:15 p.m. About 12 hours later, a man was arrested in Dallas in relation to the shooting investigation. David Jeffery Tremblay is facing two firearms charges stemming from an incident. There were no injuries reported in either shooting.

Medical health officer lands her ‘dream job’ DR. CAROL FENTON IS BASED IN KAMLOOPS Dr. Carol Fenton is also the lead medical health officer in charge of overseeing COVID-19 testing in Interior Health. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Dr. Carol Fenton landed her dream job when the world abruptly changed this past spring. The newest medical health officer for Interior Health, Fenton began work in March, coinciding with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic — something she described akin to “drinking from a firehose.” While trying to focus on familiarizing herself with her peers and new responsibilities, the pandemic was changing the way everyone was working before Fenton even got situated. “It was not a normal state that I started in,” the 33-year-old told KTW. “In some ways, it was to my advantage because we were all learning this together, but it was a crazy time.” Fenton said the pandemic has changed the focus of her job in a big way. “I’d say 80 to 90 per cent it’s COVID all the time, whereas in a normal state, communicable disease would be maybe 10 to 20 per cent,” she said. Fenton’s job is based in Kamloops, but she spent the first few months working in Kelowna and getting to know her colleagues in person before having to work with them remotely. She began working from Kamloops in August. Equipped with video-conferencing technology during the pandemic, Fenton said she feels they have the best of both worlds. “I can be on the ground in Kamloops and have my finger on the pulse of local things and able to support the community — at the same time being able to collaborate with my MHO colleagues every day,” Fenton said. She currently works from her Kamloops home and occasionally at the public health office downtown. As a Kamloops-based MHO, Fenton said she shares the geographical responsibility for addressing issues in the Thompson-Cariboo-Shuswap health region of Interior Health with colleague Silvina Mema. “If there are geographical concerns — if there’s a spike in overdoses, if there’s a concern about flu shots, if the local longterm care has a question, their question comes straight to me as a geographic MHO,” Fenton said. “And, if need be, I can go

there in person and talk to them because I’m here in person.” Medical health officers have a variety of duties. They carry out requirements under the Public Health Act, report on local public health issues, carry out statutory functions for a geographic area of a health authority, provide direction to managers and health professional, advise and work with local governments and boards on various health issues and communicate with the public through the media. The Kamloops-based position came at a time when there had been calls from city hall for better communication from Interior Health about the pandemic, with Mayor Ken Christian stressing the need for a Kamloops-based MHO to guide the community through the crisis. As an MHO, Fenton is the lead medical health officer in charge of overseeing COVID-19 testing in the health region and is notified of every single positive test result. “We’re always keeping tabs on how many positives we’re getting,” she said, noting her work on that file includes rollout of the COVID-19 gargle test and addressing any concerns nurses may be having. She is also the co-lead on managing long-term care under COVID-19 in Interior Health, responsible for files such as visitor screening and limitations, enhanced cleaning measures and staff screening. Fenton said it’s a challenge to make sure other aspects of the job aren’t lost in the shuffle — a big one for Kamloops being the increase in overdose deaths. “These deaths are all entirely preventable and we need to not

lose sight of that, even though we’re being bombarded by COVID,” she said. Fenton was born and raised in Calgary, where she completed her education. “I lived there pretty much my whole life,” she said. Completing an undergraduate degree from the University of Calgary in health sciences, Fenton went on to complete medical school, specializing in public health and preventive medicine, and completed a masters of sciences in community health sciences. After finishing her residency program in 2018, she started teaching for the medical school and bachelor of health sciences program at the University of Calgary before filling in as a medical health officer in Halifax over the summer of 2019. From fall 2019 until this past spring, when she joined Interior Health, Fenton worked in addictions, prescribing Suboxone and methadone to people struggling with opioid abuse. Having kept an eye out for MHO positions, Fenton said she is now working her dream job. Fenton said she wanted to move to the B.C. Interior, in part because she has family in Invermere, North Vancouver and on Vancouver Island. “We often spent our summers in B.C.,” Fenton said. She enjoys spending time in nature, cooking and watercolour painting. “And, like everyone else who moves to Kamloops, I like hiking and biking and cross-country skiing,” she said with a laugh. She has a partner who is a family physician in Kamloops and they own two cats and a dog.

Q) I hear different opinions on food services at Retirement Communities. What are your thoughts on this? A) Berwick on the Park always offers delicious meals designed to tempt tastebuds and optimize nutrition. Berwick’s Red Seal chefs serve a choice of mains and sides to please everyone from fine dining to comfort food.

They take this feedback to our monthly Food Committee Meeting with our Chefs, Director of Hospitality and General Manager, where feedback is welcomed. By offering over five options at each meal, residents with varying palettes are sure to find something to their liking and every meal comes with a spectacular dessert option from our in-house baker. If this beats cooking at home, give me a call and I will drop off a sample!

In July 2020, Memorial Arena was transformed into a shelter for the homeless during the pandemic, with pods on the playing surface, but it was not used through October. The beds will be used in another shelter location. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

The physical-distancing requirements that came as a response to the COVID19 pandemic caused some havoc among Kamloops homeless shelters earlier this year. At the beginning of the year, there were 55 beds available at Emerald Centre and 30 mats available at the Mustard Seed Kamloops, but in order to meet physicaldistancing requirements, those had to be reduced to 40 and 20, respectively. Both shelters are downtown on West Victoria Street. The loss of beds was addressed by opening a temporary shelter on Royal Avenue in North Kamloops, with 20 beds, and using Memorial Arena, downtown on Victoria Street, for 50

overflow beds. Until recently, those 50 beds at Memorial had been untouched, but with all the other shelters at or near capacity during the last two weeks, plans are in place to finally utilize the beds now at the arena. But since the Memorial Arena space is only available until the end of November, and with the Royal Avenue

location running until the end of December, the city is working to secure new locations for shelters during the winter months, according to Ty Helgason, the city’s acting social and community development supervisor. “With the availability of the temporary shelter on Royal Avenue and Memorial shelter both coming to an end rather quickly, and as

Door close on open houses as COVID-19 cases rise SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

With a surge in cases of COVID19, real estate groups in the province have called for a moratorium on open houses — a plan with which the Kamloops and District Real Estate Association (KADREA) agrees. The groups involved include the BC Real Estate Association, the Real Estate Council of BC and the Office of the Superintendent of Real Estate, which released a joint statement on last week, asking realtors not to hold open houses and to limit face-to-face interactions. KADREA president Wendy Runge

said the group takes directions from the Real Estate Council of BC and will follow through, restricting local realtors from posting open house events on professional websites such as realtor.ca and asking members to cease such events. “Honestly, I have not seen very many in Kamloops,” Runge said, noting that since open houses were once again allowed after first being restricted in April, she has only seen open houses “here and there” in the region. Those who did host open houses during the permitted period had to do so with strict COVID-19 guidelines, Runge said. “But I think a lot of members just felt like it was hard to do that

well, so they just opted not to do them,” she said. Although local realtors are restricted from posting open house events on some websites controlled by the region’s real estate association, they could, Runge said, still post signs and host the events. “It’s hard to direct people and say, ‘Well, you can’t do this.’ But we can give guidance and say it’s not recommended,” she said. “They could still put a sign out on the street, I guess, but they have to realize they’re taking a lot of risk in doing so if someone complains.” Open houses or not, real estate sales in the region — and in much of B.C. and across Canada — remain as active as ever, meaning

realtors have had to get creative in how they show houses. Runge said the Kamloops and district area was one of the first in Canada to implement live virtual tours. Other precautions, when meeting in person is necessary, include COVID-19 screening forms, hand sanitizing, limiting the number of people in a house at any given time and following other WorkSafeBC guidelines. “We’re committed to doing this right because we don’t want to get shut down, for one, and, more importantly, we know people need to buy and sell houses, so we’re committed to doing whatever it takes,” she said.

we go into the winter, we are exploring our options with shelter providers and with BC Housing,” he said. Helgason said he hopes to be able to make an announcement about those alternative shelter locations soon, noting the city is going through steps to ensure potential locations will be safe for those sheltering there. It is believed the beds in Memorial will be moved next door to the Kamloops Curling Club, since curling at that facility has been cancelled for the season, due to the pandemic. In reporting

in the closure this season of the curling club, KTW noted the space will be rented out from Oct. 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021, to help with the bottom line. In addition to the shelter beds, 20 hotel rooms were set aside to be to isolate those in the homeless community who had been infected with COVID-19. Helgason said that while those locations have been used periodically, it was almost always to isolate someone who was awaiting test results. Though it has been a challenging year, Helgason said the city has relied on the response of service providers in the community, including the ASK Wellness Society, the Canadian Mental Health Association, The Mustard Seed Kamloops, the Kamloops Aboriginal Friendship Society, BC Housing and Interior Health.

notes, temperatures were colder than normal, but not by much. A typical October carries an average temperature of 8.5 C for Kamloops. Last month’s average temperature came in at 7.8 C. The bigger story was the precipitation that came with such varied weather. On average, an October in Kamloops will bring 19.4 millimetres of precipitation

— falling as rain or the snowfall equivalent. But last month saw 44.6 mm of precipitation, more than twice the average, with a fair bit of it falling as snow, especially as temperatures cooled toward the end of the month due to arctic-modified air, Sekhon said. The immediate forecast in Kamloops calls for clearing on Wednesday following the snowfall of Monday night and Tuesday morning. There are showers or flurries set to return as we near the weekend.

TRU deficit lower than expected MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

mixhael@kamloopsthisweek.com

International enrolment at Thompson Rivers University during the COVID-19 pandemic has been better than expected, saving jobs and shrinking the post-secondary institution’s projected deficit. TRU is now estimating a $3-million deficit this fiscal year, rather than the anticipated $9 million, due to the lessened blow to enrolment. Hard times, however, are still foreseen if enrolment forecasts remain dire and the university doesn’t continue taking steps to mitigate its expenses. Prior to the fall semester, TRU anticipated a domestic enrolment decrease of five to eight per cent lower than what it was in fall 2019 and 30 per cent fewer international students. After the course add/drop deadline date, the numbers were better than expected, with international enrolment down approximately 13 per cent from last fall and domestic enrolment down one per cent, according to the university. Meanwhile, Open Learning enrolment is up 4.6 per cent. “There’s a lot of work still to be done and there’s a lot of uncertainty,” said TRU vice president of finance and administration Matt Milovick. “It’s unfortunate people’s careers and jobs have been interrupted as a result. We will get back to a place of strength and we’re building for the future.” Jobs were cut in early October, but thanks to international enrolment being better than expected, there were far fewer CUPE employees laid off than the 120 layoff notices that went out this past spring. In total, 14 CUPE employees were laid off permanently, 12 employees took temporary leaves of absence and 18 employees are working reduced hours. One employee who

was issued a layoff notice opted for early retirement and 11 workers bumped others to secure new roles. In all, 25 people lost their jobs and 30 others are on leave or working reduced hours, but 64 layoff notices were rescinded as a result of improved enrolment over initial projections. “We avoided most layoffs for now,” Milovick said, noting between 10 and 12 administrative positions were also eliminated through layoffs or by not filling open positions. In order to save money, the university is not filling vacant positions and is offering its first early retirement incentive program to employees over the age of 55. Milovick said there was interest from about 115 employees across all employees groups, with the packages essentially equivalent to six months’ pay and benefits. Between existing unfilled vacancies and early retirements, TRU is leaving about 200 positions vacant, but up to 40 per cent may eventually have to be refilled where demand warrants. Administration has $6 million forecast in expenses this year for the early retirements, which will be a one-time cost, with savings to come in subsequent years. Through its second quarter, the university is expecting revenues of $222 million against $225 million in expenses for its 2020-2021 budget, to be finalized in March. Salary and compensation initially pegged at $149 million is now up to $151 million as of the second quarter, with Milovick noting increases include teacher costs for the morethan-expected students and allowance for early retirement packages. The retained international population means TRU will see a $10 million drop in tuition revenue, rather than the anticipated $20 million. The university, however, is still anticipat-

ing further erosion of its international student population next year as the pandemic persists and a large number of students graduate from their programs this school year. Milovick said this year’s drop in international enrolment was softened because many first-year international students are starting their programs online from their home countries. “Of course, the trick will be ensuring they can get here to finish their programs and, as the pandemic moves along, that creates some challenges,” Milovick said. Most international students study abroad for the experience, which has been hampered by pandemic travel restrictions. Milovick said some international students have applied for programs with partially completed VISA applications due to backlogs in their home countries, so the university expects more fluctuation come the winter semester. Right now, only a small number of classes are being held on campus, such as trades programs, with all theory-based courses online, but Milovick said the university is considering bringing back more in-person instruction. “We’d certainly like to see more bodies on campus if it’s safe to do so,” he said. If TRU were to take no further cost saving actions and international enrolment trends remain bleak, the university projects having a $7-million deficit by 2023-2024, which could mean more layoffs. “Probably, given the early retirement programs and other things, it’ll be about managing those vacancies rather than laying off people that are here,” Milovick said. TRU plans to cover its $3-million deficit using reserve funds. Prior to the pandemic, the university was projecting a budget surplus this year of about $9 million.

Surviving after leaving the residential schools CHASE AUTHOR MICHELLE GOOD’S DEBUT NOVEL, FIVE LITTLE INDIANS, IS UP FOR PRIZES Michelle Good’s book does not tell the stories of the abusers. “It’s not their story,” she said. UBC PHOTO

SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Chase author long-listed for the Giller Prize is now a finalist for the Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. Michelle Good’s debut novel is Five Little Indians, the stories of five residential school survivors living their lives and enduring the hardships brought on by trauma. The realities of her characters are close to Good, who not only has a personal connection to them — basing some of their stories on parts of her own — but has also spent decades working as an advocate for residential school survivors. “The biggest part of it is that I am an intergenerational survivor. My mother went to residential school, my grandmother went to residential school, my aunties, uncles, cousins, friends,” she said. “In fact, if my mother hadn’t lost her status by marriage, I would have been in residential school.” Good said she is a born writer and has been writing about the damage done by residential

schools since the 1980s. While this novel is her first, she is an accomplished poet, with recent works included in prestigious collections, such as her poem Defying Gravity in Best Canadian Poetry 2016. In fact, Five Little Indians was published because of its winning status. In 2018, Good’s manuscript for the book won the Harper Collins/ UBC Best New Fiction Prize while she was completing her master of

fine arts degree at the University of British Columbia. “I’m kind of gobsmacked, I have to say,” she told KTW from her home in Chase. Good spent nine years writing Five Little Indians and felt obligated to do so. “I wrote this book because I am so sick and tired of hearing that refrain in online comments and general Canadian society of, “Why can’t they just get over it?” she said, referring to the ongoing

dialogue of those who suffered at the hands of an establishment that took children from their homes. Good said much has been written about the time children spent within residential schools and the abuse suffered there, but less has been about what it’s like trying to survive after school. The book is set in the late 1960s, 1970s and onward in Vancouver, which is where Good lived in foster care during those years, eventually aging out of the system and being put out on her own. “You hear a fair bit about that these days, about trying to find supports for kids aging out of foster care,” she said. “But it wasn’t given a second thought in those days. You hit 18, you were on your own. If you didn’t have a nickel in your pocket, too bad.” The paths of the titular Five Little Indians cross over decades in the novel as their past trauma haunts them.

But while the book is full of hard stories, Good said it is also full of love and “the ultimate hope, the resilience and the amazing ability to survive in spite of everything.” One story the book doesn’t tell, however, is that of the abusers. Good said an early draft of the book contained more detailed descriptions of abuse, physical and sexual, levelled against the subjects of her book. Later drafts removed those details. “The reason I took it out was not for fear of horrifying my gentle readers, it was that I didn’t want to give any room to those abusers. I didn’t want to give them any place in this work. It’s not their story,” she said. Good will learn the outcome of her Writer’s Trust prize nomination on Nov. 18. But she isn’t waiting for more accolades. She is already several chapters into her next book and hasn’t let any of her success go to her head, staying mindful of the technique that got her to where she is now. “A lot of it involves living quietly and observing carefully — and remembering,” Good said.

Dementia helpline available into evening The pandemic has led to isolation for many. To help residents of Kamloops living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, their caregivers and family members, the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s tollfree phone line, the First Link Dementia Helpline, provides support and information about dementia and memory loss until 8 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. People who call the helpline will be connected to the full range of services offered

through the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s First Link dementia-support programs. These include online education workshops, caregiver tele-support groups and community resources. In addition to emotional support and a listening ear, callers can also access information about living with dementia during COVID-19, including practical strategies on a variety of topics, such as behavioural and communication challenges. “Someone might call in because they’re

starting to see changes in themselves or someone close to them and want to learn more about the warning signs and how to get a diagnosis,” said Carly Gronlund, the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s provincial coordinator for the dementia helpline. “Most callers are caregivers who need to know who to call or where to turn. We guide them towards services that will help them build the skills and confidence to live well with dementia.” The evening hours were added in

March as part of the Society’s plan to meet increased demand, particularly for support during evening hours. Since the pandemic began, the helpline has seen a dramatic uptake in phone calls. The helpline is available Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. for anyone who would like information and support on dementia, memory loss or general brain health, by calling 1-800-936-603 (toll-free). The helpline is also available in other languages. Learn more online at alzbc.org/fldhl.

As a result, the Davidson family is acutely aware of the importance of health care, including timely access to state-of-the art equipment and training. “We decided to direct our gift to the waiting room on the seventh floor of the new tower because the waiting room is where family members bond, not only with each other, but also with other families who are going through the same thing,” Ladonne said. “I experienced first-hand how important the waiting room is when my mom was in hospital. “I also, unfortunately, experienced the flip side — how awful and lonely it is to be in hospital when family is not allowed visiting.” In addition to the waiting room on the seventh floor, there will be 30 private, singlepatient rooms.

Ladonne and Steve Davidson of Kamloops are donating $100,000 to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, with the money to be used in the under-construction, ninestorey patient-care tower. The idea was born on April 4, when Ladonne was celebrating her birthday with her family, including high school sweetheart husband Steve. “We wanted to give a gift in honour of both of our birthdays and the hospital was the logical choice,” Ladonne said. “Our children, Matthew and Brianna, were born at RIH, as was our grandson, Beckett.” In addition, the family, like most families in the community, has used the hospital on various occasions. In fact, Ladonne was in RIH this past spring, suffering from pancreatitis and pneumonia. Thirteen years ago, Matthew was in the ICU for 10 days with serious injuries resulting from a snowboarding accident that

Ladonne and Steve Davidson have deep connections with Royal Inland Hospital and wish to help other families who have loved ones recuperating in the Columbia Street facility.

s an artist, Twyla-Lea Jensen has been using resin in her work for a long time, but less than two years ago, she took that resin work in a new

direction. “My dad passed away just a little over two years ago and my sister was looking for something to put some of his ashes into,” Jensen said. After looking into some of the options available to them, she decided to try to create a jewelry piece of her own, using resin that had been mixed with some of the ashes. She explained that the resin won’t break, crack or chip, so the ashes

will remain safely encased. Jensen has various creations, including jewelry, keychains and paperweights. She can even use her resin to cover other types of art, such as paintings, and has recently started offering Christmas ornaments. “All of the pieces I’ve made, all of the people are so happy and thankful that it’s available,” she said. Because it was her father’s death that led her to take her work in this new direction, Jensen feels as if this is her true calling. “Dad let me experiment with him,” she said. Jensen is new to Kamloops and is trying to get the word out about her work. While she’s hoping to make some arrangements with local funeral busi-

nesses, at the moment she is relying on people reaching out to her directly. While she has plenty of shapes available to choose from — including hearts, teardrops, star shapes, snowflakes, pyramids, cylinders and gems — Jensen can work with those with more specific ideas. “If they wanted something that I didn’t have, they could certainly bring me the idea and I could see if I could find a mould or make a mould,” she said. “I’ve got lots of ideas and I’m absolutely open to trying to do whatever somebody wants.” Some of Jensen’s creations are online at spiritsoultreasures.com.

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

showcase works by various Kamloops artists, with between one and three pieces displayed. Thanks for reading Kamloops This Week and we hope this page can help ease the stress of this uncertain era in which we are living.

GUARDIAN OF THE FOREST, BY MCKENNA SUTHERLAND KAY BINGHAM ELEMENTARY, GRADE 5 What inspired me was my love of wolves and the moon. At first, I wanted to make a fire under the wolf head, as if it was made of embers. Then, I ended up making it a tree-like illusion. This project did not turn out as I expected. I really just tried my best and worked hard.

Y.A.N.A. means “your are not alone.” I drew this picture also to let kids and adults know that they are not alone. I also got inspired to do this by Jesse V. She said that it’s a group at some schools. Drawing this was very hard, and I tried many times, but I’m glad I got this in on time.

Onward, Christian soldiers marching as to war

W

e are in the time of the year when we honour our veterans and those who gave their lives in the service of their country. Yet the King James version of the Bible says, “Thou shalt not kill.” It’s the sixth commandment of the 10 given to Moses on Mount Sinai. Some Christian groups over the centuries have taken this commandment literally and refused to participate in any kind of military service. One of my ancestors was a Quaker, and adamantly refused to take up arms in the American Revolutionary War. He was recruited anyway and forced into service for two years on an American warship against his will. He felt he could not disobey his conscience by using deadly force against anyone. Obviously, serving as a soldier sometimes requires killing the enemy. Is it possible for a God-fearing Christian to serve in the military?

CHRIS KEMPLING You Gotta Have

FAITH

Many of my relatives served in the military. All of them were Christians as far as I know. My grandfather, a very committed Christian, wrote in his diary of the Battle of Somme in August, 1916, “Took my first shot at Fritzie today.” He didn’t say if he hit anyone. It is very likely that those “Fritzies” shooting back at him were Christians as well. My grandmother’s brother was a lieutenant who was wounded at Vimy Ridge, and later died in combat at the Battle of Iwuy, Belgium, on October 11, 1918. I’m fairly certain he was actively involved in killing the enemy.

How does one reconcile the firm commandment not to kill, with military service? First of all, it is important to distinguish between murder and killing in the course of military or judicial action. Murder is considered morally wrong in all cultures on Earth. At the same time, almost every culture authorizes deadly force, by police, by soldiers in wartime and by those tasked by judicial authorities with carrying out executions in jurisdictions which allow for capital punishment. Recently, police in Paris shot dead a terrorist who murdered and beheaded a teacher. They were congratulated for doing their duty. The Hebrew word used in Exodus 20:13 is ratzach — murder. As in English, there is a different word for killing in Hebrew — harag. The correct translation, and the one used for the sixth commandment in every newer translation I looked at for this column, is, “You shall not murder.” King David makes

the distinction clearly in his deathbed charge to his son Solomon. He is advising his son on how to deal with Joab, one of David’s main generals. Joab had killed two other generals of Israel’s army unlawfully — Abner and Amasa. David says, “He killed them, shedding their blood in peacetime as if in battle, and with that blood stained the belt around his waist and the sandals on his feet. Deal with him according to your wisdom, but do not let his gray head go down to the grave in peace.” David is directing Solomon to mete out justice to someone

who had “shed blood in peacetime”— he “murdered” rather than “killed” in the course of authorized combat. In the time of Jesus, many new believers responded to his message of good news and spiritual healing through repentance. Some of them were soldiers, members of the Roman military force occupying Israel. They were conflicted about their role and asked Jesus’ advice on whether they should continue serving as soldiers. He told them, “Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely — be content with your pay.” Notice that he

didn’t tell them to quit the army, only refrain from acting dishonestly and giving in to greed. Jesus implied that soldiers could still be faithful believers as long as they conducted themselves with honour in the course of their duties. There are multiple references in scripture about God being a warrior. After God destroys the pursuing Egyptian army, Moses and Miriam sing, “The Lord is a Warrior, the Lord is his name.” In the book of Isaiah, the prophet writes, “The Lord will march out like a mighty man, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal.”

In multiple places God is referred to as “the Lord of Hosts”— hosts being a military reference to angelic armies under his command. Where would our world be today if we had allowed Hitler to do whatever he wanted? Military service is a worthy career for Christians. Sometimes, confronting evil requires the righteous use of force.

Trenches of Flanders CHRIS KEMPLING HAS “POEMIZED” EXCERPTS FROM HIS GRANDFATHER’S DAILY DIARY DURING THE FIRST WORLD WAR Chris Kempling’s grandfather, Cpl. George Kempling, kept a daily diary during the Battle of the Somme in the First World War. He was there the first day they used tanks in battle, observed a fighter bi-plane dogfight, just missed being hit with a sniper bullet and had a bomb land on top of his bunker. He survived, but was shell-shocked. All packed together On the spray-soaked deck Like puppies in a basket We’re going “up the line” To take a run at Fritzie It’s July 16, 1916

King George and Sir Douglas Haig Dropped by our hut today We intend to put up The Royal Coat of Arms And a sign saying “Patronized by Royalty”

After a hard day of training The boys kick back with Poker, Crown & Anchor, pitching pennies Most get drunk every night But not me Promised Gussie I wouldn’t

Fired my first shot at Fritzie Then he sent over a whiz-bang That knocked us all flat And half buried us in dirt That is the closest to death I have come yet

Snipers got three last night Then a rum-jug took seven more Feeling sick to the stomach Thinking about hand-to-hand fighting But excited too It’s the old John Bull in a fellow

Watched a dogfight this morning The German and the Brit Circling, machine guns blazing The German came down in flames But the pilot walked out and surrendered How ever did he come out alive?

Most of the sand smells bad And is full of barbed wire Canvas, old bullets and shrapnel But on Saturday I widened a trench Clean yellow sand It shovelled beautifully

A wonderful new machine Was used for the first time today Sort of an armored car like a flattened square No wheels, just a continuous track Fritzie was so scared We made 2000 yards!

Jack White’s brother is gone Jack told me how he died He was leaning on his shovel When a stray bullet Ricocheted off the blade And hit him under the chin

Fritzie got a direct hit on our bunker Bashed in the roof on top of my head And splintered all my teeth Collapsed and cried like a baby God grant me a trip home Because my nerve is gone.

Pay day today! We bought the YMCA out Heinz beans, fancy biscuits Lyle’s golden syrup on Belgian home-made bread But the tinned pineapple — oh my!

Dig It: What’s in a flake? PHOEBE MURPHY republicofarchaeology.ca

W

hen one thinks of an archaeological site, images are often conjured of the remains of large winter pit house villages, ancient burial locations or caches of impressive stone, bone and shell artifacts. Although plenty of those types of sites are found throughout the Southern Interior, one of the most common sites archaeologists encounter are called lithic scatter sites. Lithic scatters refer to archaeological sites consisting of stone tools or the waste flakes removed during stone tool production found on the surface or buried in the ground. Sometimes lithic scatter archaeological sites consist of formed tools, such as spear points or arrowheads, but more often than not, they are comprised entirely of waste flakes or by-products of stone tool manufacture. Archaeologists call these types of artifacts flakes, debitage or stone chips. The manufacture of one arrowhead can produce hundreds or even thousands of waste flakes of various shapes and sizes as the person fashioning the tool reduces a natural nodule of stone into a thin and stylized tool. In some cases, archaeologists find hundreds of waste flakes in a small area that, if pieced back together, would show the whole process of tool manufacture from a raw nodule of stone to a finely crafted tool. Typically, larger flakes

are chipped off the nodule first and then smaller and smaller flakes are removed as the tool is shaped into its final form. Archaeologists do not always have the luxury of finding hundreds of lithic flakes from an archaeological site to recreate stone tool manufacture and past activities. In fact, many lithic sites in the Southern Interior and elsewhere in B.C. consist of isolated finds comprised of one single stone artifact. What can be learned from this simple yet ubiquitous site type? The short answer is that we can actually infer quite a bit from the discovery of an isolated artifact even if that artifact consists of a single waste flake removed during tool manufacture. First of all, the location of the find can provide information about past land use. If an artifact is found on a high mountain pass or in an isolated valley, it highlights the fact people were living throughout the landscape in various ecosystems for many thousands of years. The discovery of a stone artifact provides direct physical evidence of past occupation. Additionally, the type of stone material can provide insights into trade and travel as certain material types, such as obsidian (volcanic glass), are traceable to their source. Obsidian is often found many hundreds of kilometres away from its source, providing evidence of extensive past trade networks. Other material types,

such as basalts/dacites and cherts, have known quarry sites in the Southern Interior and finding an artifact manufactured of a particular stone material can indicate where the item originated. Finding only one waste flake can also provide information about the type of tool that was being made or re-sharpened based on the attributes of the flake discovered. Moreover, characteristics of the individual flakes themselves can indicate how they were removed from the original nodule of stone. A variety of tools were used during stone tool manufacture to shape and sharpen stone tools, such as hammerstones and antler tine percussors. It is sometimes possible to determine the method that the flake was removed from the larger nodule and the material (i.e., stone or antler) that was used to remove the flake. Although not the flashiest archaeological site type, lithic scatter sites consisting of one single stone flake are incredibly common. These sites can help paint a picture of life in the past through revealing details about past land use, travel, trade, and method of stone tool manufacture thereby providing an intrinsic link to the past.

A British bulldog’s lair: Churchill’s wartime office MARGARET DEEFHOLTS

SPECIAL TO KTW

“We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!”

T

he voice on the reception room’s speaker system echoes down the years, evoking an image of Winston Churchill, cigar in hand, pugnacious and defiant, leading his country to victory despite all odds in Britain’s ‘darkest hours’ of the Second World War. More than 75 years after those words were spoken, I am in an underground labyrinth of offices, conference rooms, and living quarters that functioned as the Cabinet War Rooms from 1939 to 1945. Known today as the Churchill War Museum in the heart of London’s Whitehall area, it was the nucleus of wartime tactical planning and communication. A hideout cloaked in deepest secrecy. It is a strange feeling to walk these corridors of history, to peer into rooms that were once peopled by the men and women who held the weight of Britain’s destiny in their hands. In the Cabinet meeting room, where Churchill, imperious and irascible, chaired meetings with Navy, Army and Air Force Chiefs of Staff, one can imagine the tension lying as thick as Churchill’s cigar smoke curling up to the ceiling.

WIKIMEDIA COMMONS PHOTO The Map Room inside the Churchill War Museum in the heart of London’s Whitehall area was the nucleus of wartime tactical planning and communication for the United Kingdom during the Second World War. Visitors can book a tour of the historic underground facility.

Churchill was Britain’s knight in shining armour — albeit a rather rotund one — as he led his country to a triumphant, jubilant victory in 1945. Born in 1874 at Blenheim Palace, his family’s ancestral home, he saw action in South Africa’s Boer War, and in Afghanistan. As First Lord of the Admiralty during the First World War, he was roundly excoriated for the debacle of Gallipoli and resigned shortly thereafter. However, he was back at the helm in 1940, declaring that he could offer the country nothing but his “blood, toil, tears and sweat.” I can’t but wonder about daily life in this hidden underground

basement, a mere nine metres below the surface. Sounds of bomb blasts, the shrilling of air raid warnings and ambulance sirens must have been unnerving. By some extraordinary stroke of fate, the Cabinet War Rooms never suffered a direct hit, although an area in the back of the adjacent Treasury building suffered some damage. Had it been otherwise, the loss of England’s Prime Minister, his Cabinet and the heads of the country’s armed forces, all of whom met here regularly, would have changed the course of history. An unimaginable, indeed unthinkable outcome. As it was, nobody had a clue

as to what was transpiring below ground in the very heart of wartime London. The Museum’s corridors are flanked by administrative offices which were once alive with activity — stenographers at typewriters, clerks poring over ledgers, cabinet ministers at meetings, and military bigwigs studying the deployment of military and marine units as marked with coloured pins on detailed wall maps. Churchill presided over all this, brandy snifter at his elbow, stogie in hand, dictating at rat-a-tat speed to his quaking secretaries, delivering thundering speeches over microphones set up on his desk.

Despite these dark times, the unquenchable British humour bubbles to the surface and I can’t but smile at a little caricature of Adolf Hitler scribbled on a wall map in the Chiefs of Staff conference room; along a corridor wall, a weather board says “windy” — a private joke indicating that an air raid was in progress. There are human touches too: an envelope containing three shaved cubes of precious sugar (rationed at the time) were hoarded away in Wing Commander John Heager’s desk drawer, only discovered 40 years later when the War Rooms were opened to the public in 1984. As far as living quarters went, senior military brass and Cabinet officials were accommodated in small but well-furnished bedrooms, while lesser mortals had to make do with utilitarian bunk beds with thin mattresses and blankets. Stenographers and clerical staff slept in the “Dock” several floors below, and had to trek upstairs for showers or use of the toilet facilities. Churchill’s own study-cumbedroom is luxurious by these standards, but he reputedly only slept overnight here on three occasions during the entire course of the war. VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) on May 8, 1945, marked the end of the war. Deliriously joyous crowds thronged the square in front of Buckingham Palace. Along with the Royal Family, a beaming Winston Churchill stood on the palace balcony, waving in acknowledgement of the chant, “Winnie! Winnie! Winnie!” For the stubborn old British bulldog, this was indeed his very own “finest hour.” Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent travel article syndicate.

Defending B.C. champs make statement MARTY HASTINGS

Corryn Brown and her Kamloops Curling Club rink were victorious at the first B.C. Women’s Curling Tour event of the season on the weekend in Kelowna.

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

M

ary-Anne Arsenault wants to get her hands on the B.C. curling crown. Team Brown, which is wearing it, launched its retention campaign last weekend with a goldmedal finish at the Sunset Ranch Kelowna Double Cash, dispatching Team Arsenault 10-7 in the championship game of the B.C. Curling Tour event. “It’s always nice to play the teams we’re going to be facing at provincials and to get early wins against them is never a bad thing, but it’s really who shows up in January for provincials — that’s the main thing,” said Corryn Brown, who skips the Kamloops Curling Club quartet. Arsenault, a five-time Canadian champion and twotime world champion, last saw Brown in February at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Moose Jaw. Brown, lead Ashley Klymchuk, second Dezaray Hawes and third Erin Pincott edged Arsenaultskipped Nova Scotia 5-4 to reach the Championship Pool, a tiebreaker victory that appeared to end the veteran’s illustrious competitive career. Retirement discussion has been tabled. The 52-year-old Arsenault (who vanquished Brown 10-4 in round-robin action at the Scotties in February) moved to Lake Country from Halifax and formed a team that includes three world and national titelists — Jeanna Schraeder, Sasha Carter and Renee Simons, who are Kelly Scott’s former teammates. “When you look at the resume of the people on that team, it’s undeniable the experience they have,” Brown said. “They definitely will not be a slouch. A lot of people have to bring their A-game against them to have a chance.”

Arsenault’s group instantly joined Sarah Wark of Abbotsford as top contenders for Brown’s B.C. title. Wark bumped Brown in the final to claim the 2019 provincial championship before relinquishing it to the Kamloops-based crew earlier this year. “I think we’ll rank right up there with them,” Arsenault told the Canadian Press in October. “There’s definitely a few strong teams around B.C. and we’ll have our hands full.” Brown, Arsenault and Wark each posted 2-1 records in pool play last week in the Little Apple. The semifinal round saw Brown earn a 7-5 victory over Wark, who was unable to avenge a heartbreaking 8-7 extra ends defeat to the KCC ladies in the 2020 B.C. final in Cranbrook. “We pretty much felt like we had control the whole game,”

Brown said of the semifinal triumph on Sunday. “There were some times where we gave up a deuce where we shouldn’t have or gave up a steal to put them ahead, but we never felt like we were out of control.” Arsenault walloped Cheryl Bernard of Calgary 8-2 to reach the final. “It had its ups and downs,” Brown said of the title tilt on Sunday. “Giving up four in six obviously wasn’t ideal. Thankfully, we had a three-point lead at that point and were able to bounce back with a deuce in seven.” A deuce in eight sealed the deal and the winners’ cheque for $2,900. The men’s and women’s B.C. curling championships are scheduled to run from Jan. 26 to Feb. 1 on the Olympic ice at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre. Team Brown, which has

already qualified for provincials based on its standing as defending champion, will return to action this week in Okotoks, Alta. The event, one of only a handful remaining on a schedule ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic, will feature a few of the top teams in the country, including Rachel Homan, Jennifer Jones, Laura Walker, Kelsey Rocque and Kerri Einarson. First place comes along with a cheque for $4,000, second for $2,500, third and fourth for $1,000 and $500 for reaching the quarter-finals. Some teams, including the Brown rink, are adjusting to playing with masks on, along with adapting to the one-sweeper rule. The defending B.C. champs are also tasked with redeveloping chemistry with an old teammate. Klymchuk, who gave birth to twins in September, vacated her

lead position on the Brown rink and was replaced by Samantha Fisher, an original member of the team who quit to pursue education following the 2017-2018 season. Fisher, Brown and Pincott have been playing in the Kamloops men’s league on Mac Isle, but the Kelowna tournament was their first real pressure test of the 20202021 season. “We can throw as many rocks as we want in practise and finetune our deliveries and what not, but those games, you can’t beat them, especially playing good teams and getting to gel as a team,” Fisher said. “I was nervous going in. Can I get back to where I was two years ago when I left the game? The girls were so awesome for me and it felt like riding a bike.” Only a few more tune-ups remain before provincials.

Clothes come off for a cause MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Stones guard rocks and hammer in a provocative photo that darn near crosses the hog line for a great cause. Kamloops couple Erin Pincott and Matt Dunstone made the cover of the 2021 Curling Cares Calendar, the proceeds from which have raised more than $600,000 for charitable purposes since 2014. The cover picture, which includes Dunstone, shirtless, and Pincott lying in a grass field with a curling stone above their heads, is oneupped by what springs in the month of April. Dunstone, lying nude in a field near Cinnamon Ridge, stares stoically into the lens, accompanied by Pincott, donning spandex shorts and a sports bra, powerfully posed with a curling broom held above shoulders. This version of the Manitoba tuck, a money shot

delivered by Kamloops photographer Sara Reimer, hides the Winnipeg skip’s crown jewels behind two stones. Pincott’s right foot is raised and rests atop the rocks. “Luckily, it was still summertime, so I could stay warm,” Dunstone said with a laugh. “So now we have the photo, which some people might say has four stones in it. “I know my mom was shocked last night when she saw it for the first time.” Pincott is friends with Reimer. They brainstormed for ideas prior to the shoot, keeping in mind this is the first year men and women are included together in the calendar. “There is a little back road you can see off in the distance behind us,” Pincott said. “A few people going for their Sunday night drive may have seen a little bit more of Matt than they were anticipating. “We knew we wanted to

have fun with it. We don’t take ourselves too seriously.” Calendar organizers are asking media outlets not to publish the inside page photos, a strategy designed to spur sales online. Buy the calendar for $34.95, a price that includes shipping and handling in Canada, at curlingcalendar2021.com. Use the promo code — ErinMatt2021 — for a $5 discount. The cover shot surfaced online about a month ago. “All the guys like to poke fun at you all the time,” Dunstone said. “[Olympic gold medallist] Ben Hebert was talking about the chest hair. It was a clearcut trim job he noticed. That was the last trim job. I’ve got to get the winter coat ready to go.” Dunstone expects more friendly-fire feedback once the full-body reveal sweeps across the curling nation. “He was a good sport,” Pincott said. “She [Reimer] turned her back during the initial strip down and we

were able to strategically place the rocks, but I’m not too sure [what she saw]. We had some good laughs.” The 18 curlers who appear in the 2021 calendar were asked to choose a charitable recipient. Pincott, who belongs to the defending B.C. women’s champion Brown rink, and Dunstone, who skipped his Saskatchewan team to bronze at the 2020 Brier, chose a cause that hits close to home — the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Grant Young, Pincott’s late grandfather, suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. “He is the reason I got started in curling,” Pincott said of Young, who went to the Brier as Barry McPhee’s lead in 1981, and again in 1986 as the fifth/coach. “He passed away right before I got quite competitive with it, before Team Brown kind of broke out. “I think about him a lot when I compete. It’s a neat way to honour him.”

Storm confident they will ice deep, talented team MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Blustering brass are teasing tempest squall, a violent forecast for Kootenay International Junior Hockey League opposition. The Kamloops Storm, a light breeze to Category 5 junior B competition in recent years, are back on the radar, according to general manager Matt Kolle and head coach Steve Gainey. “In our minds, this is one of the strongest teams the Storm have iced in years,” said Kolle, who took the reins prior to the 20192020 campaign, when Tracy Mero bought 100 per cent ownership of the club, effectively ending the Barry Dewar era. “We feel like we have three No. 1 lines right now. That’s how much depth we have on the team.” Added second-year bench boss Gainey: “We do have a strong team. It’s the best team I’ve been around with the Storm.” The Storm will begin phase 1 of the COVID-19 ravaged regular season in a threeteam cohort, along with the Chase Heat and North Okanagan Knights. Three KIJHL teams opted out of the season, leaving 17 squads to play 30 games apiece amid the pandemic. Beaver Valley and 100 Mile House have taken the season off for financial reasons, while Spokane is sidelined because the Canada/U.S. border remains closed. Kamloops will open the campaign at its new home, McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre, on Friday, Nov. 13, when the Heat are in town for the first of six phase 1 tilts against the Storm. The Knights and Storm will play seven times in phase 1, which ends on Dec. 18. No fans will be permitted to watch Storm games, a downer for a club that feels it is on the rise. Atop the list of reasons for team con-

fidence is an extended pre-season, about 65 ice times that allowed the 25-man roster to gel and develop while playing with and against junior A and major junior peers. Kolle organized the ice times, which featured players such as Kamloops Blazers’ standout Logan Stankoven, Everett Silvertips’ forward Ty Kolle, Reid Perepeluk of the Brandon Wheat Kings’, Medicine Hat Tigers’ overager Ryan Chyzowski and Florida Panthers’ signee Johnny Ludvig, among others. “It created a really good environment for our team to get started in comparison to some other teams,” said Gainey, whose club was 4-0 in pre-season action. “We’re optimistic we’re ahead of other teams in some areas of our game.” Kolle’s blueprint for the Storm’s return to junior B relevance is built partly around the inclusion of local players. The roster this season is telling, with 16 of 25 players from the Tournament Capital. Prince George, Whitecourt, Alta., Valemount, Victoria, Quesnel, Brandon and Lillooet are also represented. Branden Toye is among the Kamloopsians, a 17-year-old graduate of the major midget Thompson Blazers who has eyes on progressing to the junior A ranks. He jumped into action this pre-season against players three and four years his senior, at first hesitant and finding the transition challenging. “But after practices and playing instrasquad games, and those guys have played in the WHL and some junior A, I found I fit in more and felt more confi-

dent with the puck,” said Toye, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound forward. The rookie group will also include Yale Hockey Academy graduate Owen Barrow, Pursuit of Excellence graduate Lex Friesen, Devin Benson, a former Thompson Blazers’ defenceman and Medicine Hat Tigers’ draftee, and D-man Braden Smith, a Victoria Royals’ draft pick. “We are expecting to lose some players throughout this year,” Kolle said. “You’ve got Braden Smith, who could be gone to the Royals when they fire up. Branden Toye, Owen Barrow, I believe they’re better than players junior A teams are carrying now. Devin Benson, same thing.” The junior A B.C. Hockey League campaign is underway. The major junior WHL season is slated to begin on Jan. 8. Aidan Sutter, an 18-year-old defenceman from Kamloops and Thompson Blazers’ graduate, is on loan to the Storm from the WHL’s Silvertips. “This team is loaded with talent for this level,” Kolle said. Jakob Drapeau, a 20-year-old goaltender from Prince George, enters the season as the Storm’s No. 1 netminder. Ryan Dusseault, an 18-yearold goaltender from Victoria, will back him up. “We’re looking a lot more organized and a lot more prepared for the season to start,” Drapeau said when asked to compare this year’s club to the 20192020 Storm. Forwards Brett Mero of Williams Lake, Chris Thon of Quesnel and Brendan Mucha of Kamloops round out the overage group. Gainey, along with assistant coach Andrew Fisher, will engage in a chess match with the Knights and Heat staffs in Phase 1, the type of maneuvering usually saved for playoff series. None of the soonto-be familiar foes will have the luxury of familiarity with sys-

tems. Adjustments and creativity will be key, Gainey said. “It’s going to get fun more toward the end,” Toye said. “Teams tend not to like each other after a while. Without fans, it’s going to be an interesting environment, especially when the game gets emotional.” Officials have been mandated to keep players out of the crease and extended puck battles from happening in corners, both directives designed to hamper the spread of the novel coronavirus. Gainey said pre-

season games felt relatively normal, noting officials handled the changes well. One member of the Kimberley Dynamiters tested positive for COVID-19 on Oct. 24, prompting the cancellation of two of the KIJHL squad’s pre-season games and a 14-day isolation period. A positive test during phase 1 would wreak havoc on the schedule. “If somebody from the Kamloops Storm comes down with COVID, I guess our whole group and everyone within that

reach is going to have to isolate for 14 days,” Kolle said, noting his team will take instruction from public health authorities in the case of a positive test. “We get one test, we’re out of business for 14 days. It means rescheduling games and all kinds of impacts. Ice bookings are tight. My fingers are crossed we don’t have to cross that bridge.” THE TEAM There are 25 players on the Storm’s roster. Ryan Dusseault and Jakob Drapeau are the goalies.

Devin Benson, Zack Vandekerckhove, Samuel Lewis, Aidan Sutter, Braden Smith, Carter Adams, Cole Senum and Brody Johnston are the blue liners. The forward group includes Peyton Kelly, Chris Thon, Lex Friesen, Brett Mero, Jayden Russell, Harrison Ewert, Kasey Jackson, Brendan Mucha, Branden Toye, Zakery Anderson, Carter McLellan, Josh Hamling, Jameson Rende, Everett Rasmussen and Owen Barrow. Peter Friedel is the team trainer.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

Aries, balancing work and family is important. Sometimes one or the other should take priority. Communicate often and openly about your needs.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, the stars are putting out some strong energy that can keep you grounded when you face adversity this week. You will stay calm and focused.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Others may be making certain assumptions about you lately, Gemini. Their intentions are good, so don’t hesitate to reach out and lend them an ear.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Cancer, your life is going to start to equalize a bit. That means you can feel more relaxed, healthy and balanced. This is a great time to examine relationships and make plans.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Glowing compliments reach your ears, Leo. You will finally learn how much others respect you. Take the spotlight with grace and remain as composed as possible.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Planning an event or party will be lots of fun for you, Virgo. All the details are in order and you are a master of timing. Others may enlist your help, too.

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

Good stuff all the time.

NOVEMBER 11 - NOVEMBER 17, 2020 LIBRA

- Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, now is your time to encourage others to turn their goals into reality. You’re a positive force in the lives of so many people, and others recognize that.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, it may not be apparent to you, but you often make a very good role model. You tend to be driven and organized, and young people in your life can learn much from you.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sometimes it’s a battle between two sides within you, Sagittarius. Your patient and impatient sides might be at war this week. Take a step back and reconsider your approach.

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

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Capricorn, let someone with high energy inspire you to be a go-getter in the week ahead. They may be on to something, and you can benefit from the extra hop in your step.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Even though change is good, it isn’t always comfortable, Aquarius. Transitions in your life may feel a bit challenging this week, but surround yourself with support.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20 Dreams may have you tossing and turning, Pisces. Just remember that dreams are not necessarily indicative of what’s to come. Rest easy.

Miss You Everyday

Miss you so much Your Loving wife forever Phyllis (Tish)

She Walks in Beauty LORD BYRON

She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impaired the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o’er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

To have you as my loving wife Was cause enough for pride No one could be your equal No matter how they tried My wife, our Mom, one in a million We loved you to the end We lost three precious things that day My wife, our Mom, our friend.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!

Love Dave and all your Family and Friends THERE’S MORE ONLINE

Hedy Bepple

1943 - 2020

Heaven gained another angel. Dennis Douglas Austin passed on November 3, 2020 at the young age of 77 where he peacefully passed away in Kamloops, British Columbia. Dennis was born on August 12, 1943 in New Westminster, BC to Douglas and Geraldine Austin. Dennis was an amazing father, family member, friend to all he knew throughout his life including his military family, and as a Scout Leader to mentor young boys in many Beaver activities. Dennis went to school in Vancouver and joined the military September 1, 1960 where he specialized in the transportation trade with numerous postings across Canada. He spent four years in Europe, five years in Germany, one year in Egypt, and continually travelled the world returning home with the most amazing stories which made all of us so proud. Our father retired from the forces on September 1, 1992 then stayed in Calgary for a couple of years and moved to the Shuswap in 1994. Started working again driving (logs, dump, long haul) and retired again in 2002 to Kamloops. He proudly served our country as Master Warrant Officer for 33 years where not only was he admired for his loyalty and dedication but also for the many certificates and medals he received which included “Peacekeeping, UNEF, NATO-OTAN, and the Canadian Forces Decoration.� Dennis had an incredible passion for camping, hiking, fishing, boating, Harley Davidson motorcycles and vintage automobiles. He also enjoyed reading various Tom Clancy novels, trivia, keeping up with current events, various social programs, playing a ruthless game of crib, and helping anyone in need, whether it be an organization, a neighbour or just a stranger on the street. Dennis loved attending the local pub to eat a saucy rack of ribs. Or at his favourite place, A & W burgers to enjoy a teen burger, onion rings and a hot cup of orange pekoe tea. Let’s not forget about Dairy Queen blizzards and an endless supply of “tic tac’s� and lip balm which seemed to be in every pocket.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving mom, grandma, great-grandma Hedy Bepple. Hedy passed away October 4, 2020 at the age of 84. She is survived by her children, Marco Renz of Kamloops, Marcel Renz of Medicine Hat, AB, Annette Fensom of Kamloops, Barry (Donna) Bepple of Prince George, Lyle Bepple of Kamloops, Shawn (Rita) Ruddell of Irricana, AB, David Ruddell of Kamloops, brother Rene Ammann of Winnipeg, her ten grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. She is predeceased by her husband of 26 years, Oscar Bepple. She is also predeceased by mother Hedwig Weibel, father Ernst Ammann, and brother Ernst Ammann. Hedy was born December 25, 1935 in Vogelsberg, Switzerland. Hedy came to Canada in 1967 and lived in Fort Nelson, until settling in Kamloops, BC. Hedy spend a lot of her years square dancing and travelling with Oscar, and gardening at her home in Westsyde. She took a lot of pride in her flower beds. She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially at family dinners. Many of her last few years she spent a lot of time working on many crafts and building puzzles.

Dennis is survived by his son Jon, daughters Darlene, Amanda, Sheryl, and their extended families. Also leaving behind are three grandchildren as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. His sister Faye and especially his brother and best friend Ray and his supportive wife Lynda.

A celebration of life will be held hopefully in spring 2021. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation or Alzheimer’s Society of BC.

There will be a gathering of family and friends next year when appropriate to remember Dennis and to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the local SPCA or any other animal shelter as he had the biggest heart when it comes to his love of animals.

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director

Every Wednesday in KTW!

Q. The cemetery where we used to live insisted that we bury Murray in an expensive urn. Why? A. Each cemetery makes up its own rules. Most cemeteries nowadays place the urn into a solid box with a lid (called a vault). The ashes should remain undisturbed for many years, regardless of the cost of the urn.

Fond memories linger every day, Remembrance keeps them near.

When funds are low and debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing down a bit,

Success is failure turned inside out – The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So, stick to the ďŹ ght when you’re hardest hit – It’s when things seem worst that You must not quit!

Robert Charles Van Dusen

Ross Leonard, aged 84, passed away peacefully on November 2, 2020 with his loving family by his side.

Mary Margaret (Peggy) Haywood-Farmer It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Mary Margaret (Peggy) Haywood-Farmer (nee Higginson) on October 24, 2020 at the age of 98. Peggy was predeceased by her mother Mabel and father Randolph Higginson, her daughter Mickey, husband George and son Jim. She is survived by her children Gerry (Wayne predeceased), Pat (Keith), David (Bonnie), Shelley (Brad), daughter-in-law Elaine and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Peggy was born in Edmonton, Alberta on October 8, 1922. She was an only child and the family moved around a great deal. She settled in Vancouver and proudly attended King Edward School. In 1941 she moved to Savona to work at Indian Gardens Ranch as a tutor for Betty Haywood-Farmer. During that year she fell in love with George Haywood-Farmer and they were married on June 1, 1942. Peggy quickly adapted to a semi-isolated ranch life without many modern conveniences such as electricity. She was a very supportive wife assisting in all the activities required to operate a successful ranch. She was very active in the Girl Guide movement, St. Hilda’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 “snowbird� lifestyle in Yuma, AZ with golfing and attendance at pre-season baseball games being a regular part of their activities. Special thanks to Dr. Kruger and staff, the doctors and nurses at RIH, the nurses and staff at Berwick/Brio and Ridgeview and the special nurses and staff at the Kamloops Hospice Association. Peggy was a wonderful mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, friend and a mentor to many young girls through her Guiding activities. She will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by everyone who knew her. A celebration of life will be held at a later time. Should anyone wish, donations can be made in her memory to the Kamloops Hospice Association, 72 Whiteshield Cres. S., Kamloops, BC V2E 2S9, 250-372-1336. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

Love’s greatest gift is remembrance.

Ross was a significant presence in the lives of his family, his colleagues and the community. Ross had a rewarding career in the field of civil engineering as one of the founding partners of Urban Systems, where he was described as a man of integrity, standing shoulder to shoulder with his colleagues in good times and challenging ones. He was a man that gave of himself and his time, putting the needs of his family and others ahead of his own. This commitment spilled over into his work with the Lions Club, Habitat for Humanity, volunteer boards and countless school committees. Ross’ greatest achievement, however, was that of husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and son. Married for 57 years to his high school sweetheart Pat, they had a wonderful life together skiing, golfing, travelling and spending winters at their home in Palm Springs. Together they raised a close family with their three children Allan (Jan), Andrew (Toby Ing) and Shannon (Pascal Monti). He was a wonderful “Ponka� to his five beautiful granddaughters: Zoe, Paige, Lucia, Gia and Giorgia. He will be deeply missed by his sister Aileen, sister-in-law Joan and his many nieces and nephews. While Ross has left this world, he leaves behind fond memories of a man who loved canning pickles and tomatoes, geography, complex mathematics and a good joke. A private family service will be held in the spring.

Robert Treger It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Treger of Kamloops, BC, on October 30, 2020.

He soon met Annie; they fell in love and moved to Kamloops, where in 1974 they married. Bob and Annie found their own paradise in Paul Lake, living there for 42 years. They raised their two daughters Jessica and Michelle at their beloved lakefront house. Bob was known for his intelligence and humour. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and loved to talk and debate about many subjects. He was a joker and had a nickname for everyone. Bob was also passionate about music, which he passed down to his daughters and grandsons. He is now resting peacefully, listening to the birds, and watching over the lake. There will be no formal ceremony, by request.

The

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is on object of beauty & strength & I stand & watch her, until at length, she is only a speck of white cloud just wheret he seas & sky meet and mingle with each other. Then someone at my side exclaims, “There, she’s gone!� Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large as she was when she left my side & just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone, there are other eyes watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout “There she comes!�. by Henry Van Dyke

THE TIME IS NOW If you are ever going to love me, Love me now, while I can know The sweet and tender feelings Which from true   Love me now         I’m gone And then have it chiseled in marble, Sweet words on     If you have tender thoughts of me,

Never to awaken, There will be death between us, And I won’t hear   So, if you love me,     

May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of Despair
