Council Calendar In-person public attendance is now permitted. Virtual attendance via Zoom will also continue to be an option

ARE YOU PLANNING A HOME RENOVATION? Renovate Smart Kamloops is a program designed to help homeowners get the most out of their home renovations. Learn how to increase your home’s energy performance and about the incentives that may be available to you.

August 31, 2021 1:30 pm - Regular Committee Meeting 7:00 pm - Public Hearing

Home Energy Performance and Carbon Accounting Workshops

September 9, 2021 2:00 pm - Community Services Committee Meeting

September 13, 2021 2:00 pm - Community Relations and Administration Committee Meeting

Upcoming Workshops

All meetings are currently being held at Norkam Mechanical Group Lounge (formerly Valley First Lounge), 300 Lorne Street.

AUGUST 15–28

MUSIC IN THE PARK

Home Energy Workshops will be monthly. The next one is scheduled for August 25 at 5:00 pm.

Find the detailed schedule at Kamloops.ca/MusicInThePark. The Music in the Park tradition began in 1994 as a legacy of the 1993 Canada Summer Games. For 26 years, the City of Kamloops and BCLC have sponsored daily concerts at Riverside Park throughout July and August. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was the first year since 1994 that Music in the Park did not take place.

Carbon Accounting Workshops will be quarterly. The next one is scheduled for September 16 at 12:00 pm.

Home Energy Consultation Find out if you are eligible to discuss your renovation plans in a free, one-on-one consultation with the City’s Community Energy Specialist. To learn more or to RSVP for a workshop, visit: Kamloops.ca/RenovateSmart

COMMUNITY CLIMATE ACTION PLAN BIG MOVES ART PROJECT While developing the Community Climate Action Plan (CCAP), grade 9 Westsyde Secondary School art students were asked to share their creative visions of local climate solutions as related to the CCAP’s eight “Big Moves”—which include strategies to promote low-carbon development, sustainable transportation options, and zero-carbon buildings. This week features the artwork of Big Moves 1–4, and next week will feature artwork from Big Moves 4–8. The CCAP was adopted by Council on June 29, which was the hottest day ever on record in Kamloops (47.3°C). The plan outlines ways to reduce emissions locally and to increase our resilience to climate change impacts. With scientists attributing this summer’s heat dome and more severe wildfire seasons to climate change, the need for climate action is more urgent than ever. To learn more, visit the youth art exhibit outside Cunliffe House (262 Lorne Street) in Riverside Park—on display until September 7—or view an online gallery of the student art at: Kamloops.ca/ClimateAction

City evacuation alert rescinded SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

The City of Kamloops has rescinded the evacuation alert for more than 700 properties in the southwest of the city, affecting the Iron Mask area and Pineview Valley neighbourhood. Recent bouts of wet weather have diminished some of the aggressive fire behaviour seen just days ago in the three large fires around Kamloops, but the BC Wildfire Service still has plenty of work to do — and the risk of fires being a threat again remains. Thompson-Nicola Regional District chair Ken Gillis said the rain has changed the situation, at least for now. “This weather seems to have come and pretty much bailed us out of an impossible situation. It’s certainly still a difficult situation, but it doesn’t feel impossible like it did two or three days ago,” he told KTW. Gillis said prior to the shift in weather that began on Monday, he was signing six or seven evacuation orders or alerts every day. On Monday, he didn’t sign any.

The Tremont Creek wildfire southwest of Kamloops prompted an evacuation alert reaching into Pineview Valley and city limits, but on Tuesday, it was rescinded following Monday’s rainfall. On Monday, the fire received between 11 and 27 millimetres of rain — comparable to the amount of rain Kamloops has received in the past two months or more. Crews are now working on establishing fire guards south of Cherry Creek. Structure protection crews are maintaining their presence in Cherry Creek and the Face Lake and Paska Lake areas. As of press deadline on Tuesday, Gillis said he was hoping to see the evacuation order for Cherry Creek stood down, and the same for Logan Lake on Wednesday, but noted he can’t promise they will be lifted. The northern flank of the fire, from Barnes Lake to Walhachin, continues to show little to no activity, but wildfire service patrols are continuing. The Sparks Lake wildfire north of Kamloops, meanwhile, received precipitation of about 11 millimetres in some areas. But in areas to the north, including south

of Bonaparte Lake, farther west near Young Lake and on the northeastern flank near Dunsapie Lake, there was less rain to go around. On Tuesday, crews were working near Dunsapie Lake and a fire guard was being built along the Jamieson Creek Forest Service Road to protect areas to the east, including Barriere, which was put on evacuation alert on Monday. At the White Rock Lake wildfire southeast of Kamloops, crews said the rain received was “not enough to have a lasting effect on the wildfire,” but it did provide firefighters with an opportunity to make some progress in establishing fire guards. This week’s forecast was characterized as “very favourable” by Todd Nessman, manager of wildfire operations with the BC Wildfire Service. He said 25 to 40 millimetres of rain hit some areas, but even with that much precipitation, some areas will dry quickly. “We won’t be back into the conditions we’ve experienced, which is good for our staff, and it gives us an opportunity to get a handle on it,” he said.

Post-fire funding set KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kamloops council has approved using reserve funds to help pay for changes the city is making in response to the Canada Day wildfire between Valleyview and Juniper Ridge. Nearly a half-million dollars is being spent on access road improvements, post-traumatic support sessions and communication, but council stopped short of committing to a four-year agreement for the Voyent Alert application during its regular meeting Tuesday. City staff received council’s support to transfer $400,000 from its working capital reserve funds to cover proposed upgrades to an access road in east Juniper through a gravel pit off Kicking Horse this year.

Staff were also given the green light to transfer $92,720 from reserve funds to pay for virtual postincident trauma support sessions it offered residents following the July 1 fire ($2,720), as well as initial costs of its recent use of the Voyent Alert app ($40,000) and its recent construction of a temporary access road between Coldwater Drive in west Juniper and High Canada Place in Rose Hill ($50,000). The civic operations department cleared and constructed a temporary 700-metre access road between Coldwater Drive and High Canada Place following the fire, removing vegetation, conducting surface grading and placing compacted asphalt millings, as well as concrete barriers, signage, and reflectors for safety. With council’s decision,

an annual $3,500 in maintenance work will be added to the 2022-2026 budgets. But council opted to not approve $15,000 in its upcoming budget for the licensing costs of the Voyent Alert app, which was used when Barnhartvale, Dallas and Campbell Creek were recently placed on evacuation alert due to the White Rock Lake wildfire. Coun. Dale Bass amended the motion to remove that licensing commitment from the vote after Mayor Ken Christian and Coun. Arjun Singh noted issues with the system and myriad options available. “Given that we are going to be using this for things other than urban interface fires there may be a procurement process that would be able to look at all the software systems out there,” Christian said.

Dozen downtown homes can be mobile This home at 451 Battle St. is one of 12 homes downtown eligible to purchased and moved. Otherwise, they will need to be demolished to make way for the City Gardens development. KELSON GROUP PHOTO

SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A number of downtown homes may soon be relocated to make way for Kelson Group’s City Gardens development, which will use space in the 400 blocks of Nicola Street and Battle Street. Twenty homes are in the way of the development and must be relocated or demolished before construction of the highrises begins in 2022. In total, 1.5 blocks of space is needed. Kelson Group president Jason Fawcett said 12 of the 20 homes are able to be relocated and the work will be done by Nickel Bros. House Moving, with some houses starting at $75,000 for local moves. Fawcett said most of the homes were built in the 1920s and 1930s, making them 90 to 100 years old. Some aren’t in good enough condition to move; others have layouts that wouldn’t facilitate the move. While age does limit the ability to move some homes, Jeremy Nickel of Nickel Bros.

said the company has moved homes as old as 200 years. “There’s going to be some limitations on how far they can move, but Nickel Bros. have lots of experience,” Fawcett said. Sixteen of the 20 homes were purchased by Kelson Group in 2017 and, two years later, agreements were reached to acquire the remaining four homes. Tenants have received notice that they will have to move some time in the next few months, Fawcett said. One house is likely to be moved to McLure, Fawcett said, noting “the closer the better” when it comes to

moving a house. Nickel Bros. is focusing on a 100-kilometre radius of the city. “We’re hoping that in the next few months, potential buyers will come forward and strike an agreement with Nickel Bros. and us, and then toward the late fall or winter, the homes will be relocated,” he said. The homes up for sale include 520, 530 and 576 on Fifth Avenue; 420, 430, 435, 443, 461 and 469 on Nicola Street; and 435, 451 and 461 on Battle Street. To see the houses available for purchase, go online to the City Gardens news and events website at

kamloopscitygardens.ca. City Gardens is a massive, multi-million-dollar plan to redevelop a portion of downtown Kamloops The plan, valued at an estimated $160 million to $180 million, is expected to add about 1,000 residents and more than 500 living units to the downtown core. City Gardens will occupy 1.5 blocks of real estate south of Battle Street, between Fourth and Fifth avenues, and be home to the two tallest buildings in the Kamloops skyline — residential towers standing 18 and 22 storeys. The City Gardens project was first unveiled in September of 2020. Since then, there have been modifications to the original plan based on community feedback. A development permit application has been submitted to the City of Kamloops.

Building New Friendships

Q: My mom is 83 and her circle of friends is becoming increasingly smaller with each passing year. We include her in most of our family activities but feel she would be much happier having her own friends. Have you got any suggestions? A) Friendships can have a major impact on our health and well-being. This becomes increasingly important as we get older and face a variety of life events that could trigger loneliness and isolation. Many older adults find it hard to develop new friendships. Developing and maintaining good friendships takes effort. To meet like minded people you have to go to places where others are gathered and this can sometimes be intimidating. Has your mom ever thought about researching retirement community living where there are endless opportunities available to meet new people, develop close social connections and friendships? You can share a meal, attend fun activities, fitness classes and more. It is easier when all of the opportunities are under one roof. The friends you make in a retirement community can become like family. They are there to help you celebrate good times and provide support during bad times. Friends prevent loneliness and they can increase your sense of belonging and purpose. Remember, it’s never too late to build new friendships!

Employee Resignation? Or Not? Often when an employee quits, there is a clear end to the relationship but at times, ending employment can be uncomfortable, murky, and pose a big financial risk for the employer. For an employee to be considered to have resigned their employment, the resignation must be clear and unequivocal. If there is any grey area, the employee may be considered to have been terminated without cause, triggering severance pay requirements or opening the employer up to a human rights claim.

Covering an election nobody wants

A

nd here we are, at the beginning of a wholly unnecessary federal election campaign less than two years after the last one. The last election was held on Oct. 21, 2019, and saw the governing Liberals lose their majority, but lead a minority government. Voters will again go to the polls on Sept. 20, 2021, one month shy of the two-year anniversary of the last election. And guess what? The makeup in Parliament will more or less mirror what is there now, with the Liberals or Conservatives leading a minority government, the Conservatives or Liberals in second spot and the NDP and Bloc pulling up the rear, with the Greens far, far behind. Same old, same old for the cost of many hundreds of millions of dollars that could have been put to better use — perhaps even on

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS the wildfire battles here in the Kamloops region. Elections Canada estimates the election will cost $610 million to stage, about $100 million more than what the 2019 election cost, due to pandemic-related safety measures and an expected influx of mail-in ballots that will need to be counted. In 2007, Parliament passed Bill

C-16, a law setting a fixed election date for the third Monday in October every four years, beginning on Oct. 19, 2009. However, since the law still allows the governor general to dissolve Parliament at any time at the request of the prime minister — as Mary Simon did on Sunday (and as all but one governors general has done before her) — the law is about as effective as the Edmonton Elks’ offence. Locally, it appears in these early days to be a contest between Conservative Frank Caputo and New Democrat Bill Sundhu. Caputo is hoping to succeed four-term MP Cathy McLeod in Ottawa by maintaining the support she received in 2019, when she won in a landslide. In that election, McLeod almost lapped the field, collecting 32,415 votes. Finishing a distant second was star Liberal candidate Terry Lake, who amassed 19,716 votes.

Every other candidate failed to reach the 10,000-vote mark. Sundhu is hoping to siphon votes from Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo voters who normally lean Liberal, but who might consider a vote for him in this riding to be more strategic and/or who might be annoyed that an election was called. The Liberals locally have gotten off to a rough start, emulating the New Democrats in the 2019 election. Back then, the NDP lost two candidates before finding a third to run. In this campaign, the Liberals lost their original candidate — George Petel — to work and family commitments four days after unveiling him to the masses. Replacing Petel is Jesse McCormick, a lawyer and newcomer to Kamloops who has spent some time working for various departments in the previous Liberal government.

Jumping in to fill the void is something McCormick did in the 2019 election, for an Ontario riding association that could not find a local Liberal candidate. He managed a second-place finish, some 14,000 votes behind the Conservative victor. The Greens are expected to set a nomination date this week, with at least three people expressing interest in running, while Corally Delwo will represent the People’s Party of Canada, whose candidate in 2019 — Ken Finlayson — received less than two per cent support (1,132 votes). There may also be a candidate for a fledgling Maverick Party, while an independent aspirant may also be entering the race. More on all of this as the 36-day campaign continues amid the smoke, the flames and the virus. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

The proper language of the climate change crisis There are 150 new coal-fired plants under construction or already approved and funded in the world, so you can’t really say we are taking global warming seriously yet. But at least the scientists who wrote the report on the state of play that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published are starting to use the right language. One of the biggest obstacles to getting the public to take the warming seriously in the 30 years since this subject got on the international agenda has been the cautious language the scientists always used.

They didn’t want to be accused of exaggerating, so they always talked about the likeliest case, rather than the worst case. Clever people can be quite dense.

happens, and you may never be able to buy another one. The Working Group One report of the IPCC, dealing with the physical scientific realities of climate change and published in preparation for the big climate summit (COP-26) this November in Glasgow, is definitely an improvement on its predecessors. It has franker language and fewer weasel words. The biggest single improvement has been the use of what they call “calibrated language.” Each statement is given a level of confidence expressed by five qualifiers: very low, low, medium, high and very high, and each

prediction has a specific statistical meaning. So, virtually certain means 99 to 100 per cent probability, whereas very likely means 90 to 100 per cent probable. More likely than not means between 50 and 100 per cent likely to happen and extremely unlikely is between zero and five per cent probable. This system forces the report’s writers to deal with the fact that almost nothing about climate science is hard and fast — and how could it be otherwise? — Read the entire column online at kamloopsthisweek.com.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

ROBIN HOOD FOR PRIME MINISTER Editor: I was moved by Heather McDonald’s powerful message in her letter in the Aug. 11 edition of KTW (‘Seeking directions to “away’’) and quickly saw a connection with letter writer Will Peters’ view on the same page that we find a way to share the wealth (‘Let’s demand the redistribution of wealth’). We should collectively be ashamed to call our ourselves a leading nation to which others might aspire when we have people who are starving, malnourished and homeless. Quick to point out human rights violations of other countries, we conveniently overlook the growing mound under the rug of our society. It’s appalling that far too many have so much, while growing numbers of others have so little. It’s time for a Robin Hood government. Ron Wiebe Kamloops

Vaccination debate on B.C. university campuses continues SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

The debate over whether or not to institute a vaccine mandate at Thompson Rivers University is continuing, but much of it depends on decisions made at the provincial level. Faculty say their hands are tied, while students have been left wondering what the requirements will be at the school when inperson classes begin less than one month from now. In a letter posted to TRU’s website on Aug. 13, president Brett Fairbairn said the university is following the situation closely and is prepared to respond as directed by public health authorities. “The rise of COVID-19 case counts and the fast spread of the Delta variant is on our minds, as we know it’s on yours,” he said. Since mid-July, the province has been trending far upwards in yet another wave of COVID-19 infections, most of which have been in unvaccinated people. Fairbairn said he “strongly encourages” that everyone get vaccinated if they’re able, noting he still wears a mask in crowded indoor public spaces. Currently, TRU has no mandate for masks or vaccinations. Meanwhile, Kamloops-based Interior Health medical health officer Dr. Carol Fenton tweeted that she wants the university to “make her proud” by instituting a vaccine mandate for staff, students and faculty, as the University of Ottawa did on Aug. 10. That university and a few others in Ontario, along with hundreds of colleges and universities in the U.S., have enacted mandatory vaccination protocols for students and staff on campus. Complicating the matter may be the return-to-campus guidelines. TRU had a hand in creating those guidelines, with university vice-president Matt Milovick included on a steering committee. Currently, those guidelines stipulate a full return to campus, without any guidelines for maskwearing, vaccinations or physical distancing. But according to the Confederation of University

The COVID-19 vaccination clinic opened on McArthur Island on March 15, but has since been closed as the building is now being used to help evacuees from wildfires. While a community vaccination clinic continues at the Tournament Capital Centre, there are some who believe vaccination should be mandatory for those who study and work at adjacent Thompson Rivers University.

Should TRU have a mandatory vaccination protocol for students and staff on campus? Answer our Question of the Week online at kamloopsthisweek.com and/or email editor@kamloopsthisweek.

Faculty Associations (CUFA BC), B.C.’s Ministry of Advanced Education has “quietly directed” against universities creating their own measures for the fall. “We call on you, Minister Kang, to affirm the autonomy of BC’s universities to continue to establish the health and safety rules governing safe campuses, including but not limited to the introduction of vaccine and mask mandates, modes of course delivery, class sizes, and on-campus joint health and safety committees,” reads an Aug. 5 letter from CUFA BC to Advanced Education Minister Anne Kang. TRU Faculty Association president Tara Lyster told KTW that more information is expected in the coming days. She thinks the plan will change, but isn’t sure how. “There’s just so many different pieces and moving parts,” she said. Lyster, a longtime nurse and associate teaching professor in TRU’s School of Nursing, believes

a vaccine mandate would make it easier for those coming to campus. “I think is something that would allow for an easier transition back to classes and allowing faculty, students and staff to feel safer and more confident to be on campus,” she said. For now, Lyster said the faculty association is recommending everyone get vaccinated, while the organization’s supporting bodies, including CUFA BC and the Federation of Post-secondary Educators, are pushing for institutional autonomy. The TRU Students’ Union (TRUSU), meanwhile, is also waiting to hear what the fate of the guidelines will be come fall. “I’m honestly not in a place to know whether a vaccine mandate is a public health order that would make sense at TRU,” said Nathan Lane, president of TRUSU. Lane said it’s in the best interests of everyone on campus to know what they are getting into before the fall — and the sooner, the better. “Really, we’re looking for leadership from public health officials, to say if there will be a mask mandate, a vaccination mandate ... I think they need to make it clear for students before they move to Kamloops from around the world or across the province, so they know what they can expect for learning conditions,” he said.

A Q&A with Ellis Ross, one of six candidates had in Skeena and that’s what I plan to bring to the rest of British Columbia.

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Ellis Ross was elected MLA for Skeena in 2017 and again in 2020. He currently serves as the Official Opposition critic for Environment and Climate Change Strategy. Before running for MLA, he worked full-time as a taxi boat operator until the Haisla Nation Council asked him to be its first full-time councillor, which he was from 2003 to 2011, when he was elected chief of the Haisla Nation. As councillor in 2006, Ross signed a $50-million agreement with Kitimat LNG to build a liquid natural gas plant on one of the Haisla Nation reserves. In 2012, Ellis was appointed the inaugural chair of the Aboriginal Business and Investment Council. In 2014, he was the only First Nations leader among 25 Canadians invited by thenFinance Minister Jim Flaherty to a public policy and budget retreat. His leadership website is at ellisrosscampaign.ca.

ROSS: I’m basing that on what the BC Liberal members are saying and what British Columbians in general are saying — that we need change, not only from the BC Liberal perspective, but also British Columbians in the way we handle politics. That’s what I am. I am change. That’s where I came from. I came from change, I came from a community that changed in terms of our outlook on economic development, so I’ve done it before. KTW: What sort of change can you provide? ROSS: There’ a lot of change, especially when we talk about forestry management or forestry response in terms of wildfires, but ultimately what we’re really talking about is the BC Liberals going back to the grassroots people and actually listening and taking their perspective and incorporating it into the vision of B.C. that we all have in terms of our families and our communities.

KTW: What is it you’ve heard at the grassroots level? What do the BC Liberals need to get back to doing? ROSS: Listening. And I made that commitment not only here in Kamloops, but in Maple Ridge, Abbotsford and Richmond that that change, in terms of getting back to listening to people, I’ll commit to that change. KTW: In 2005, on behalf of the Haisla Nation, you signed a $50-million deal to build an LNG plant on Haisla land. Should B.C. still be investing in fossil fuel projects considering climate change challenges such as the wildfire seasons we’re seeing now? ROSS: Well, what we were told when we first got in to the LNG subject almost 16 years ago was that it was a transitional fuel and we should be looking at all the initiatives coming up. I agreed with it then, but the thing about B.C. is we’re always striving to do better. There’s a lot more innovation coming up in terms of carbon capture, electric cars, but we’ve also got to deal with infrastructure to handle that, so I think we’re on a good track so far and we’re actually doing above and beyond what the rest of the globe is doing if you compare us to the United States or other countries around the world.

KTW: The BC Liberals have lost a lot of support from British Columbians. We saw them with 77 of 79 seats when they were given a mandate in 2002. In 2017, they won just 28 of 85 seats. Why do you think that happened? ROSS: What I’ve heard from the people is we didn’t change with the times. We didn’t keep up with the demographics changing, for example, or the idea that more people were moving out of the Lower Mainland from Vancouver to the surrounding communities. We didn’t keep up with the idea that 50, 000 people were coming in to B.C. on an annual basis and we didn’t keep up with the idea that every single community was asking to be heard. KTW: What would you do as leader to turn those numbers around? ROSS: Get back into every community that I can possibly get in to, get in to every constituency and listen to them because we’re a diverse province. If you go from town to city, or even the small villages, we are very diverse. Our interests are different, but at the end of the day, we all want the same thing. We want a better future for our kids than what we had or maybe what our parents and grandparents had. That’s the success we

KTW: B.C. is facing myriad challenges right now between COVID-19, wildfires, the opioid crisis and mental health and homelessness issues. What are your priorities for B.C.? ROSS: Number one, get rid of divisive politics. I’ve never agreed with politics that pit British Columbians against British Columbians. I don’t believe in that — never have. I’ve seen the example amongst my community and how it divided us to the point where we couldn’t even think about the future, let alone the present. This current government, practising a policy of dividing us, is one of the things I think has to go. It’s part of the recipe for a good, strong province. KTW: Turning to the pandemic, what’s your opinion on mandatory vaccinations for health-care workers? ROSS: I support the idea. My mother was actually in care during COVID-19 and she was trying to recover from cancer. There’s a number of reasons why I supported it. If we weren’t allowed to look after her and visit her, then I expected her not to get COVID-19 at the same time. I’ve heard many stories at the same time from people who’ve lived out similar circumstances. Personally, I don’t want to get COVID-19 and I don’t want to spread COVID-19 to anybody. KTW: Are you double vaccinated? ROSS: Pfizer. Two shots. KTW: What about hospital employees, and university students and faculty? Do you think there should be mandatory vaccination for those groups? ROSS: The government right now has to make a decision. This is a live issue right now and our leadership race isn’t on until Feb. 5 (2022) — and even then, we’ve

got to campaign as a party for the next election in 2024. So, I’m really interested in what this government is going to do because this is historic in terms of global crisis, so I’m keeping a close eye on what both levels of government are doing — the NDP government as well as the federal. KTW: Do you support mandatory vaccination for students and faculty at universities? ROSS: Well, that’s really up to universities. From what I understand, each level of institution here is having different ideas and it’s really dividing them. I’ve really got to get into these institutions and actually hear what their opinions are and what they’re basing it on. There’s different rationales out there, so I’m not the kind of leader who directs from the top down. I take my direction from grassroots people. KTW: It’s been a particularly bad wildfire season. The province started taking a harder look at wildfires after bad years in 2017 and 2018, yet we’re right back at it. What do you see as the solution and how would you tackle the wildfire situation in B.C.? ROSS: First of all, I’d show up as a leader — in any type of crisis, doesn’t matter what it is. It does the people good to see their leader on the ground looking at some of these issues. I was invited by many people to visit Monte Lake and listen to the people versus what the NDP government was saying about them. That’s number one. Number two, if forest fires are going to be our future, as everybody says, then we’ve got to change our strategy. We’ve got to collaborate with communities, we’ve got to collaborate with ranchers and loggers and we’ve got to look at technology and innovations and actually become a world-class leader in fighting fires. That’s why I committed to creating an institute on forest fire prevention, mitigation and response. And listening to these people, it’s badly needed. — The full Q&A is online at kamloopsthisweek.com.

Election campaign amid fires, smoke, virus VOTERS WILL GO TO THE POLLS ON SEPT. 20 IN CANADA’S 44TH FEDERAL ELECTION

CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE FRANK CAPUTO KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

As expected, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Gov. Gen. Mary Simon on Sunday and she granted his request to dissolve Parliament, a decision that kickstarted a 36-day election campaign, with voters going to the polls on Sept. 20. It will be the first federal election held during a pandemic — with the 17-month ordeal seeing cases rising, mainly among the unvaccinated, due to the delta variant — although five provinces, including B.C., and the Yukon have gone to polls amid this pandemic. At dissolution, the governing Liberals held 155 seats, followed by the Conservatives with 119, the Bloc Quebecois with 32, the NDP with 24, the Greens with two. Five seats were held by independents and one seat was vacant. In Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo, four-term MP Cathy

GREEN CANDIDATE IAIN CURRIE McLeod has decided against seeking re-election, with Frank Caputo winning a four-person race to succeed her as Conservative nominee. Other confirmed candidates are Bill Sundhu for the NDP, Corraly Delwo for the People’s Party of Canada, Jesse McCormick for the Liberals and Iain Currie for the Greens. Four of the five confirmed candidates to date — Caputo, Currie, McCormick and Sundhu — are lawyers. On Aug. 7, the Liberals announced that George Petel had been acclaimed as their candidate locally, but he withdrew four days later, citing a desire to focus on work and family. Caputo has cited local priorities such as safe streets, accountability and transparency in his bid to be MP, arguing Trudeau’s Liberal government has long ignored the area covered by the Kamloops-

Thompson-Cariboo riding. Caputo served as president of the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo riding association until he stepped down to seek the nomination. Delwo won a two-person battle for the nomination and said she is committed to representing urban and rural residents of the riding, along with forming partnerships with, and being an advocate for, First Nations in the riding. McCormick cited the need for a thriving economy, while ensuring there is environmental protection and climate action. He was director of rights implementation at the office of the minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada from December 2019 to June of this year. Prior to that, he spent almost four years with the federal Department of Environment and Climate Change. In his role

as the department’s director of Indigenous relations and regulatory affairs, McCormick visited Kamloops in 2016 as part of the Ajax mine proposal, which was later rejected by the provincial and federal governments. Sundhu was the first candidate to be confirmed in the riding, having been acclaimed by the NDP on April 8. Sundhu said his post-pandemic recovery focus will be on better incomes and jobs, health care and making life more affordable, such as housing, child care, student debt and protecting the environment. He was the NDP candidate in the 2015 federal election, finishing second to incumbent Conservative MP Cathy McLeod, who won by about 3,000 votes. Sundhu earned a master’s degree in International Human Rights Law from Oxford University and is counsel to the International Criminal Court in

The Hague, the Netherlands. He also serves on the University of British Columbia board of governors. Currie was also the Green candidate in 2019. He said he ran then to address the climate crisis and to push for reform of Canada’s economy and political systems. Today, Currie said, those issues are even more urgent . Currie is running even though he has labelled the election “foolish and unnecessary,” called “for purely selfish political gain at a time when our community is on fire, battling a fourth wave of COVID-19 and struggling to come to terms with the horror of hundreds of unmarked graves of children at the residential school.”

Campaign begins as McLeod’s four-term reign ends KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Outgoing member of Parliament Cathy McLeod may have missed her chance to get her husband Gord’s name into Parliament’s annals, but she wasn’t going to let the chance slide at the Rotary Club of Kamloops. McLeod, who addressed the club’s Aug. 9 in-person meeting at the Delta Hotel, noted she passed on her chance to give a farewell speech in the House of Commons before the end of the last session in June. “[Gord] was so mad I didn’t do my final speech in the House because I thought we have two more years in this mandate,” the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP said. “They were letting people do their final speeches in June and I said, ‘I’m not going to do my final speech because we have two more years to go,’ and he said ‘Cathy, I wanted my name in Hansard. “Of course, you always recognize people who are so helpful to you over the years, and he missed

Cathy McLeod was Kamloops’ MP from 2008 to 2021.

his opportunity to be in Hansard, but I’ll tell him he’s on the Rotary minutes.” The federal election was called this past Sunday, with voters going to the polls on Sept. 20. With McLeod not seeking re-election, Frank Caputo will be the local Conservative candidate. McLeod used her anticipated final address to the club as MP to praise the riding she has served since 2008 and to reflect on her 13 years in office. “I have always felt honoured

to represent this area,” she said. “I think it would be boring to have a little block in Toronto that is your community.” McLeod cited accomplishments such as the twinning of Highway 1 between Kamloops and Chase, noting she used to work in Chase Health Centre as an administrator but found herself being called in to use her former skills as a nurse in the ER when highway accident victims came in. “It was easily once every month or two months they’d say, ‘Cathy, we need you in the emergency and I’m like, ‘My skills are pretty rusty, but I’ll be an extra hand for you’ as people came in from terrible, terrible accidents at Hoffman’s Bluff. “I remember [former KamloopsNorth Thompson MLA] Kevin Krueger telling me, ‘We have to get that highway four-laned’.” But smaller projects like Royal Canadian Legions and splash parks also came to mind. “It’s knowing that the communities have identified things are important to them and you, in

partnership with the municipalities and the regional districts, moved those initiatives towards success,” McLeod said. She praised the team in her constituency office that did case work: “People give me credit, but it’s them.” McLeod noted that newly elected MPs often have expectations that “quickly get sort of fettered in terms of the reality of Ottawa.” But she noted that in both her seven years in government and her six years in opposition, she found opportunities to make a mark, with parliamentary secretary roles including the Canada Revenue Agency and Labour and five years as shadow minister for Crown and Indigenous Relations, which she cited as her “biggest honour.” One regret was that she never got to bring her health care background to bear in an official capacity. “I had sort of big dreams in terms of where Canada should go and what we could do in terms of a health-care system that was more effective,” McLeod said.

Her most traumatic day on the job was the shooting on Parliament Hill in October 2014. “Quite frankly, we thought we were all going to be shot to death as we heard massive gunshots,” McLeod said. “That was certainly a day that will stand out in my memory.” McLeod said she got a recent media request with the question “What do you worry most about?” “I think what I worry most about right now is an unstable geopolitical environment,” she said. “You look at the Middle East, you look at China’s increasing aggression, you look at polarization … “I am worried about our economic situation in terms of the fallout of the pandemic and the extraordinary levels of debt and deficit we are taking on and how Canada is going to recover from our current situation. “What continues to inspire me is we’re a big country, we’re a country of communities, and hopefully these areas of worry we can overcome.”

City, private partnership a success for North Shore PROJECT INVOLVED EXTENDING THE SIDEWALK FROM THE INTERSECTION OF YEW STREET AND TRANQUILLE ROAD TO SPIRIT SQUARE MICHAEL POTESTIO

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A local business owner is proud of the improvements made to the street outside his North Kamloops restaurant. Mitchell Forgie, owner of Red Beard Cafe at Tranquille Road and Yew Street, said the changes serve as an example of municipality and private investment working together to improve the North Shore. “It has been a great collaboration between property developers Arpa Investments, the landlords at Red Beard, Jeff and Tanya Isfeld, Red Beard itself and the City of Kamloops,” Forgie said. The project involved extending the sidewalk with multi-coloured bricks from the intersection of Yew and Tranquille to Spirit Square. Prior to Arpa constructing an apartment building next door to Red Beard, the sidewalk turned inward around the intersection for on-street parking and access to Spirit Square was

cut off by the front yards of two homes upon properties the apartment building now sits. Forgie said Yew was previously “a haphazard street, typical of Tranquille.”

“With the new work, we have a beautiful, wide, tree-lined sidewalk that now continuously connects Spirit Square to Tranquille,” Forgie said. He noted old street letdowns, which

often put cars and pedestrians at odds with each other, were eliminated and Arpa and Red Beard planted new trees that will help mitigate heat. Forgie said the trees he paid for in front of his business — ruby vase parrotia persica — were chosen with the help of the city’s arborist for their air0cleansing qualities, helping to mitigate air pollution along the street. Forgie said the city’s investment in the expanded sidewalk prompted Red Beard to make a new investment in its patio space, adding seats and activity to the area, noting residents have moved in to Arpa’s The Colours on Spirit Square, with the Yew Street Food Hall set to open in that building. “We look forward to continued work on behalf of the city and other businesses to see how they can collaborate,” Forgie said. “As the North Shore Neighbourhood Plan is nearing completion, it is through this type of collaboration that we can start to bring these great visions to life, little bit by little bit.”

Tk’emlúps condemns what it calls Catholic priest’s ‘hate speech’ KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc and the Union of BC Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) are condemning what they call the “malicious antiIndigenous and anti-Semitic hate speech” of Catholic Priest Rev. Marcin Mironiuk of Edmonton. Vice World News first reported on and shared portions of Mironiuk’s comments that were streamed live during Polishlanguage masses on July 18 at Our Lady Queen of Poland parish in Edmonton. “We are in the presence of lies here in Canada,” Mironiuk said in Polish during a mass. “There were reports stating why these children were dying. They were dying from natural causes and were buried in regular cemeteries, and that’s why we’re living now in a great lie.” On Oct. 13, the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton announced that Mironiuk had been placed on indefinite leave and that an apology from

him and the Oblate Fathers of Assumption Province would be read at this past weekend’s masses. In addition to the comments, Mironiuk said he visited the former Kamloops Indian Residential School and, without disclosing he was a priest, asked to see the unmarked graves — a request that was denied as he was told the grounds were sacred and not open to the public. In a joint statement, Tk’emlúps and the UBCIC called that incognito trip to the former residential site “a display of pure racism, utter disrespect and contempt for residential school survivors, intergenerational survivors and First Nation caretaker communities of the missing children.” “The public incitement, willful promotion and dissemination of hatred are punishable offences under the Criminal Code of Canada,” said Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, president of the UBCIC. “In several publicly posted

sermons, Rev. Mironiuk delivered false, derogatory, racist and severely re-traumatizing statements to his congregation and public followers. He referred to the uncovering of mass graves at former residential schools as ‘the unfolding of big, big lies’ that people will come to believe as truth and called upon his followers to ‘protect the truth,’ dismissing the proven systemic abuse, violence and atrocities committed at these schools while encouraging and inciting hatred.” Stewart said Mironiuk also went on to make several antiSemitic statements that compared the mass and unmarked graves at residential schools to the Jedwabne pogrom in Poland during the Second World War, in which hundreds of Jews were murdered by ethnic Poles, an event Mironiuk said was a lie perpetuated by Jewish people. Tk’emlúps and the UBCIC said it is unacceptable that the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton initially sheltered

Rev. Mironiuk and would have allowed him to continue preaching publicly. “The Archdiocese cannot claim they are committed to truth and reconciliation when they continue the Catholic tradition of protecting abusers and prioritizing their public image, only offering insincere words, never meaningful action, that minimize and downplay the severity of their role and culpability in residential schools,” the statement reads. The UBCIC is calling for Mironiuk’s immediate dismissal from ministry and an investigation into his actions as hate crimes. Tk’emlúps Coun. Jeanette Jules said Mironiuk has shown “reprehensible disrespect” toward the countless number of missing and unidentified children and toward First Nations communities across the country. Jules noted it took almost a month, from when the remarks were made on July 18 to Aug.

13, for Mironiuk’s superiors to take action, only after the story was first reported by Vice World Media. “Very unfortunately, this is not surprising given that the Roman Catholic Church has repeatedly refused to accept responsibility or formally apologize for its direct role in the numerous and horrific abuses committed against Indigenous children through the Residential School system, despite having operated over 70 per cent of all Indian residential schools in Canada,” Jules said. “In calling the unmarked and mass grave sites at residential schools “lies” and “manipulation,” and in disrespecting the rights and jurisdiction of Tk’emlúps to protect the sacred burial grounds, Rev. Mironiuk has shown us the hate, ignorance, and bigotry that has fuelled and enabled Canada’s colonial regime and genocide against Indigenous peoples for centuries,” stated Councillor Jeanette Jules, Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc.

Poem, medal of honour stolen from truck in city KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kamloops Mounties are asking for the public’s help in recovering items with irreplaceable sentimental value that were stolen from of a truck about two weeks ago. A poem from a family’s late son, a silver medal of honour and four silver bracelets were among the items stolen from a truck in the 700-block of residential Arbutus Street in the city’s West End. The items were taken sometime between July 27 and July 29, having been placed in the vehicle within a bin intended to hold valuables in the event of an

evacuation order from this season’s ongoing wildfires around Kamloops. “What makes this situation even more heartbreaking is that the items were placed in the vehicle as part of an emergency evacuation plan so that the owner could protect them should a fire cause them to leave in a hurry,” Const. Crystal Evelyn. “Whoever stole the items needs to realize their monetary worth is nothing in comparison to their sentimental value. Please look deep into yourself and return them.” A shiny, black wooden box with a golden “J” on the front, as well as a blue box

containing other items associated with the family’s late son, were returned to the detachment recently and reunited with their owner. The missing silver medal of honour is from Thompson Rivers University and features a female recipient’s name, the silver bracelets were to be presented to four granddaughters during a special reunion and the late son’s poem is typed on an 8-inch-by-11-piece of white paper, Evelyn said. Anyone, including a business, presented with any of these items is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file number 2021800361.

Did you film Columbia grassfire? The Kamloops RCMP is asking drivers to check their dash-cam footage after two grassfires were ignited along Columbia Street on Wednesday, Aug. 11. Const. Crystal Evelyn said the two fires — one that started at about 3:30 p.m. in the 300-block of the street and another 35 minutes later near Sahali Terrace — were doused by Kamloops firefighters before they could grow and damage any structures. Evelyn said a suspect has been identified

and police are investigating. Anyone who was travelling in the area of the 300-block of Columbia Street, as well as Columbia Street West to Sahali Terrace, is asked to check their vehicle’s dash-cam footage to find out if it captured anything of note between 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 11 that may be related to the investigation. Those with information are asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file number 2021-27842.

In addition to coughing, a small percentage of the infected dogs had eye or nasal discharge. “None of the dogs have become seriously ill and all are recovering, but the concerning aspect of these cases is how aggressively the disease has spread between dogs, even if they weren’t in close contact,” Gordon said. “Most affected dogs were vaccinated, so while we still recommend the vaccine to reduce illness, it appears that we may

be dealing with a virus that is not part of the current vaccine.” People whose dogs begin coughing are advised to isolate their pet immediately and to seek veterinary advice. In the meantime, Gordon said, the BC SPCA has collected samples as part of the outbreak investigation and is teaming up with specialists and diagnostic laboratories to determine the cause of the outbreak. “Any place where dogs congregate and make contact with each other increases risk — this would include dog parks.” Gordon said in response to a query from KTW. “Risk is highest in indoor, kennel-type settings, but there is a risk with outdoor contact as well, especially if toys and water are shared. If people do go to dog parks, make sure your dog is fully vaccinated, stay away from coughing or sick dogs and bring your own water and supplies, so you don’t have to share. “We know exercise, friends and outdoor time are important to dogs, so we don’t recommend major changes, but encourage people to take precautions.”

WHY DO MY GUMS BLEED AFTER A CLEANING? Part I

A patient recently asked “why do my gums still bleed - I just had a cleaning” and “is this normal?” Bleeding gums indicate an inadequate response to a dental cleaning.It is as simple as that! The purpose of this month’s column is to outline the top seven reasons gingival inflammation persists after a dental cleaning. The most important thing is to figure out why, instead of simply “giving the patient another cleaning.” Research shows that many repeat episodes of scaling and root planing (a deep cleaning) are no more effective than administering a single episode of scaling and root planing performed properly. Residual tartar and bacteria remain after a dental cleaning, in fact the majority of the time, this can happen! No one can ever remove ALL the tartar! It just depends how much is left and how sensitive you are to the quantity and quality of what’s left. Several reasons explain why removal is never 100 percent.

A Kamloops-based podcast will soon see a video series spinoff focusing on the paranormal thanks to an unexpected opportunity to receive grant money through the Telus Storyhive program. Todd Sullivan and Carlo Sia have put out 20 episodes of their podcast series Half-Cut Conspiracies, in which the two examine popular conspiracy theories while imbibing liberally. The two met in the theatre world, with Sullivan as director and Sia as actor. After con-

So far, the video series, called Half Cut: Myths and Mysteries, includes chats with local ghost hunters and other purveyors of the paranormal. Sullivan himself isn’t entirely convinced by the idea of paranormal experiences, but he’s not ruling it out, either. There was an incident that happened in a supposedly haunted hotel room in Barkerville. He recalled one night, while sleeping in bed with his girlfriend, feeling a pressure on the edge of the bed, as if she was getting up or had just returned. But when he rolled over to look, she was fast asleep. “I could say it was

maybe a ghost. I don’t think it was, but it was an experience I can’t explain,” he said. Sia and Sullivan are hoping to chat with Kamloops locals who have had mysterious experiences, like seeing a ghost, strange objects in the sky or mysterious creatures in the woods. “It’s been very focused on the ghosty side of things so far, but it’d also be fun to include other experiences, as well,” Sullivan said. Anyone interested in sharing their own paranormal experience can reach out to Sullivan by email at todd.sullivan@ gmail.com before Friday, Aug. 20.

Tooth anatomy. Specific tooth and root shapes present challenges for calculus removal. Crowns and fillings on teeth make things more challenging. Roots have all sorts of curves and concavities to make things challenging. Implants are even worse. Fractured calculus. A recent article discussed the inability of the operator to effectively clean the tooth due to the chemical bond created between the calculus and the tooth root surface. This bond can cause the calculus to fracture during multiple attempts at removal. Repeated instrumentation smoothes the calculus within the surface of the root, making it harder to detect. Like burrs left on your socks after hiking! Aggressive bacteria. There are certain microbes that not only rest on the root surface but invade into the surrounding gum tissues as well. Scaling and root planing will not treat the problem. Only laser light energy or antibiotics can clear out these bacteria inside your gums. Operator experience. Research shows that the more experienced the dental professional performing the treatment, the more effective the reduction of bleeding after a cleaning. One study showed that in moderate (4–6 mm) and deep (greater than 7+mm) periodontal pockets, operators with more experience produced a significantly greater number of calculus-free root surfaces after scaling and root planing vs less experienced operators. The conclusion was that more experienced clinicians can have superior root surface debridement. To be continued next month

Anyone who typically buys fares or monthly bus passes for children 12 and under will no longer need to do so. A family that buys their child a $35 monthly transit pass for a year will save $420.

spiracies came up as a topic of conversation after a few drinks one evening, the idea was born. “Maybe we should record ourselves talking about it and turn it into a podcast?” Sullivan remembers thinking. When Telus’ Storyhive program issued an open call for projects, Sia and Sullivan pitched a video version of their project and were given $5,000 to make it happen. The two will submit their work by Sept. 15, but prior to that, they want to add a little more, asking Kamloops residents to reach out with their paranormal experiences.

FAITH

You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free

I

n the passage of the scriptures from John 8:1259 there are at least 11 times the Lord used the words true or truth. It was one of many times that Jesus taught in the temple in Jerusalem. There were common folk there to listen and the ever-present Jewish religious leaders. In the beginning of the teaching session, the Pharisees said to Jesus, “You bear record of yourself, your record is not true.” In other words, “you are a liar.” Being a liar is not a nice thing to be accused of — especially if it’s not true. The Lord very forcefully made it clear He was telling the truth. He had just said He was the “Light of the World.” Then Jesus referred to the passage in Deuteronomy 19:15, where it says a person cannot be convicted of a crime with only one witness, there must be at least two or three witnesses. Jesus cited that He was one witness and his Father made it two witnesses, to testify as to who Jesus is. Telling the truth is essential when the statement of the Lord — regarding the truth of his claim of being the light of the world — is at stake. So the Lord’s claim of being the light of the world is verified truth and is no empty claim. This is why Jesus used the words true and truth so much in this passage. Jewish leaders were constantly hounding the Lord on his claims in this discourse. In the Bible, in John 8:28 the Lord referred to his coming crucifixion and how the Jewish response to him would be to crucify him.

JOHN EGGERS You Gotta Have

FAITH

It is interesting that it wasn’t the disciples of the Lord who requested that Pilate give consent to making the place of his burial secure, but rather the Jewish leaders. They were concerned some kind of wrongdoing would be done, hence their request for those who guarded the tomb. It is at verse 32, where the Lord spoke the title of this column. To base one’s hope on a maybe or a possibility, is not a reliable base to put your trust in. Knowing the truth is the only way true confidence can be put in something or someone. In John, chapter 14, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.” In John 8:36, the Lord says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.” Jesus used the saying in verse 32 now, but changed it to read that He is this liberating truth. He is the only one that can set us free from bondage to our going astray from God. The Jewish religious leaders said that they were never in bondage but that is not true. They were in bondage when they were in Egypt and they were in bondage when Israel was taken

into captivity by Babylon, to name just a few. There are other times when they were oppressed by the nations around them but that would take a number of articles to elaborate on. The Lord then dealt with them about their making claims to being Abraham’s offspring. Their natural connection to Abraham was of no value to them if they did not know the one true God that Abraham knew. They did not trust God as their own personal Saviour, but instead, thought their lineage from Abraham was something that brought them into God’s favour. The leaders said that Jesus had a demon and that he was a Samaritan, which was a racist comment in that day. They asked the Lord the question, found in verse 53, “Whom makest thou thyself?” The closing response of Jesus was, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am.” The end result of this was that they tried to stone the Lord, but He hid himself, leaving them in their madness and went away. Jesus told them the truth, but they would not have it. I close with this question, which the Lord asked in verse 46 from this passage in chapter 8. Jesus said, “And if I say the truth, then why do ye not believe me?” John Eggers is an elder in the assembly that meets in Westsyde Gospel Hall in Kamloops.

Dig It: The precise work of wildfire archaeology BUFFY JOHNSON

SPECIAL TO KTW

H

ow do you protect archaeological sites during a wildfire? With a whole lot of communication, co-operation, field maps, fire guards and luck. On June 28, a human-caused fire was started northwest of Kamloops, near Sparks Lake. Within several days, the fire was out of control and threatening many homes and properties. The Skeetchestn Indian Reserve was forced to evacuate on July 2. The Sparks Lake fire has now burned more than 90,000 hectares, making it the largest wildfire in B.C. this year to date. At Skeetchestn Natural Resources, other archaeologists and I have been working in partnership with our own firefighting crews, BC Wildfire Service, Indigenous knowledge keepers and foresters to help plan firefighting logistics. While life and property always come first, we do what we can to protect the cultural heritage in Skeetchestn traditional territory. Most archaeological sites in Skeetchestn territory are underground and are, therefore, largely protected from the devastation of wildfire. Once a wildfire has burned over a site, the loss of the organic layer of soil and soil-stabilizing roots can lead to archaeological sites being lost to erosion.

CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT: A fire guard being built near Sedge Lake; Tori Verkaik and Buffy Johnson of Skeetchestn Natural Resources flagging off an archaeological site before fire guards are made near Sedge Lake; reviewing maps with fire crews. JOANNE HAMMOND PHOTOS

As fighting wildfires is an emergency, First Nations communities and archaeologists are often required to triage which archaeological sites are the most important to protect. Sites that are at the forefront to safeguard are typically significant places, such as village sites and places that contain ancestral burials. In our area, the predominant danger to archaeological sites during a wildfire is from the heavy equipment used to fight it. One of the most used and successful modes of controlling wildfires are containment lines, or fire guards. To create fire guards, heavy equipment removes the fuel — trees, shrubs and all flammable material — in large swaths. Digging up the earth may help harness a wildfire, but it can also

easily destroy archaeological sites. This is where having a database of known archaeological sites is incredibly important. In B.C., the provincial heritage register, maintained by the BC Archaeology Branch, holds this data. Our GIS technicians create maps showing all the documented archaeological sites in an area, which helps us in assisting the planning of new roads, fire guards, staging areas and firefighter safe zones. We meet daily with firefighting teams to review maps of where potential fire guards are going to be located. This is called line locating. If the guards are going to intersect with sites, we work on finding ways of placing them around the site or move them to bypass the

site. Once a plan of where guards are going to go is in place, we head out into the field and flag archaeological sites that are nearby to remind heavy equipment crews of areas to avoid. We are happy that after a month of being evacuated, the Skeetchestn community returned home in early August. However, our crew continues to work on the Sparks Lake and Tremont Creek fires. Between the Elephant Hill Fire in 2017 and the current fires burning, more than 45 per cent of Skeetchestn territory has burned. Once the fires are out, we will begin the work of post-impact assessments. This includes walking the fire guards and checking for undocumented archaeological sites, as well as reclamation work

to protect sites the fires went through. A bonus for archaeologists is that after a wildfire has removed the vegetation, it is often quite easy to find artifacts and features, such as pit houses, that have been hidden by plant life. Many of the sites in this area have survived for thousands of years amid many burning events. It is our job as archaeologists to make sure we not only learn from the archaeology in the area, but also protect these areas for future generations. Buffy Johnson is a Kamloops-based archaeologist.

‘I’m so proud’ CHRONICLING WESTIN NEWCOMEN’S INSPIRATIONAL SWIM

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Westin Newcomen, 18, lives with severe developmental delay, autism and a seizure disorder. He completed an inspirational swim across Paul Lake on Monday, with his fan club gathered on the shore. MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

W

arren Newcomen knelt on the dock and offered a hand to son Westin. Nan Stevens, a mother in tears, watched her boy from a nearby pedal boat on Paul Lake, where a crowd of about 30 people — part of the village that helped raise the child — gathered on Monday to cheer on 18-year-old Westin, who lives with severe developmental delay, autism and a seizure disorder. Among the fan club was 15-year-old Finn, who clapped while his older brother inched closer to a milestone six years in the making, a moment that would not have materialized without Bon Bon. Bonnie Peterson, who calls herself The Old Lady, is the 77-year-old support worker who swam a few metres in front of Westin on the 450-metre trek across

the lake, provoking him with encouragement. “He calls me Bon Bon and I call him Westy Besty,” Bonnie said with a laugh. “He’ll say to me, ‘Proud of me?’ and I’ll say, “Oh, I am so proud of you.’ He’s just a very special young man.” Nan was 39 when Westin arrived and life was forever changed. “Right away, I knew,” said Nan, recalling thoughts that accompanied the birth of her son. “Knowing he would be a dependent his whole life, I think I went into the dark, deep basement of grief — figuratively and literally — for, I’d say, five to seven years.” Seizures persisted. There were numerous trips to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and a revolving door of psychologists, pediatricians and insufficient diagnoses. Westin, violent in adolescence, was expelled from elementary school. “He wasn’t welcome back to any elementary school,” Nan said, noting Westin

has a cognitive age of about two or three. “He’s bitten people, kicked people. We’ve had to say a lot of sorrys to the public. “Nobody signs up for this. It’s changed my life forever. It affects us financially, it affects our mental health, our physical health, the toll it takes, the lack of sleep ... you just try to get through the day sometimes.” Nan recalled the trying period that led to a change in outlook. “I really woke up when I got sick,” she said. “I had a brain tumour in 2008 and a craniotomy. I decided I could be angry and grief-stricken my whole life with this monkey or I could choose to embrace the journey. “The black hole isn’t very friendly.” Bonnie entered Westin’s life not long after his expulsion from school. “Things were difficult, yeah, but I take young people the way they come to me,” said Bonnie, a support worker for 57 years. “I don’t read past report cards,”

Bonnie said. “I took him to therapeutic riding and it went from there. He can downhill ski, ride a bike, hike, ride a horse — he’s a very talented young man.” And he can swim, thanks in large part to parents Warren and Nan, who were told any attempts at athleticism would be futile, but thought that medical advice was off the deep end. Gross motor skills are Westin’s jam and Bonnie has been his swimming instructor for the past five years. At first, he wore masks and goggles, afraid to get his face wet. So she painted nail polish on stones and let them sink to the bottom of the pool. They were shiny. He liked that. Soon, Westin was a maskless, stone-surfacing machine. “I say, ‘Oh, wait until you tell mom and dad,’” Bonnie said. “And he says, ‘Yeah, proud of me.’ And I say, ’Yes, they’ll be proud of you.” See JERRY, A27

JERRY MAGUIRE PROVIDES SWIM MANTRA From A26

Added Nan: “Bonnie believes Westin is the greatest thing on earth. She’s one of the village people you adopt as a family member.” Westin was 12 when he started knifing through the pool with Bonnie, who pushed him into completing 12 laps, one for each of his birthdays, each 25 metres in length. Each year, Westin improved his personal best by one lap. This year, he completed 18 laps, which is 450 metres, roughly the length across Paul Lake from the family dock. A plan to celebrate his accomplishment and inspire others was hatched. “The public isn’t so great with high-needs kids yet,” Nan told KTW a few days before the swim. “A story like this is a little step in the direction of, hey, these people have the right to be included in all ways. “He’s a beautiful soul. We hope you get a sense of this boy’s spirit. He has this incredible spirit. It’s contagious. You’ll see.” Dad Warren spoke to KTW priot to the swim on Monday, sitting on the dock before the crowd arrived, concerned about chop on the smokeblanketed lake. “I think there will be a few tears, a lot of cheers and, yeah, I guess I’m a bit nervous because I hope he makes it,” Warren said, noting Paul Lake is a different animal than the YMCA and TCC pools. “The main message is that if you have a kid with some challenges in his early days, he can overcome them. We’re not going to let him give up. That’s one thing we don’t do.” About eight months ago, the idea was planted in Westin’s head and these three words he has repeated ad nauseam since: “Swim the lake.” But it was another refrain that echoed off the water more often on Monday — “Show me the money.” Westin is a huge fan of the movie Jerry Maguire. He bolted out of the house on Monday uttering the famous line and it became the mantra of the day.

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW Husband and wife Warren and Nan bookend children Finn (left) and Westin on Monday at Paul Lake.

Finn, a brother and caregiver, piloted the dock boat across the lake to drop off Bon Bon and Westin, whose upright swimming form lends itself to saying and hearing 1990s classic movie tropes. “Show me the money!” crowd members yelled as Westin reached the halfway point. Mom, keeping her distance in the pedal boat, exhausted the Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr. special — anything to keep Westin going. “Being a mom has probably been the best thing I’ve done in my life,” Nan said. After recovering from the craniotomy, she completed a doctorate degree in education and used it to equip emergent teachers with skills necessary to work with children with special needs. The former Thompson Rivers University associate professor, now retired, is quick to acknowledge there are, and always will be, hard days. But Monday was not one of them. And there have been better days in recent years.

Nan said her son, who has been taking CBD for six years, is a poster boy for medical cannabis, noting he has been seizure-free for three years and non-violent for about five years. The pandemic came with a silver lining for Westin, who seems to experience more calmness and happiness with less programming on his schedule. “After many years of grief, there is an incredible amount of pride, and swimming across this lake is just a small example of the pride I have for this boy,” Nan said. “It was like, you own it or you reject it, and I wasn’t rejecting the journey, but it hasn’t been easy, I will tell you that. We do have choice in how we respond to events in our lives.” Warren pulled Westin up onto the dock as his son completed his swim, while We Are the Champions played on a bluetooth speaker, the second of two tracks on the playlist, the other being one of Westin’s favourites, Crazy Train

by Ozzy Osbourne. Bon Bon treaded water, watching and gleaming. You should have seen her face. She was so proud. Westin never once touched the support boat or latched onto her arm. He did it on his own, with encouragement from his village. “I want people to see that a young person who has a disability still has wonderful qualities, is still capable of doing very special things,” Bonnie said. “I’m hoping it might just change one person’s mind. Some of them are just totally disrespected. They could be in a room and, as far as other people are concerned, they don’t exist. They need to be respected and given a voice.” Westin’s voice was heard on Monday. “Show the money!” he trumpeted, shivering and shaking as his fan club dispersed. Mom had a few more words, too. “I’m so proud,” Nan said. “I’m so, so proud.” CATCH THE VIDEO KTW took video of the swim on Monday, footage that will be seen in Episode 13 of Kamloops Last Week.

TOLEDO HELPS WEDDING MC HOLICK IN BLAZERS’ COURTSHIP MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Mark Holick was master of ceremonies and his wife, Janet, was maid of honour at the Robinson wedding, when Colin (Toledo) and Tracy got hitched in 1997. Twenty-five years later, Toledo played officiant to Holick’s union with the Kamloops Blazers. Holick was named associate coach of the WHL club on Thursday (Aug. 12), replacing Cory Clouston, who stepped away from the position last Wednesday, citing personal reasons and a desire to spend more time with his daughter. Shaun Clouston, head coach and general manager of the Blazers, was surveying options for his brother’s successor when Holick’s name came up. “Toledo [the Blazers’ trainer] reached out via text. I trust Colin 100 per cent,” said Holick, who succeeded Cory Clouston

MARK HOLICK

as head coach of the Kootenay Ice in 2007-2008. “I said, ‘Yeah, I’d be willing to sit down with Shaun and listen.’ “Everything I heard, I liked.” Robinson was trainer and Holick assistant coach for the Langley Thunder in 1995-1996, when the club reached the B.C. Hockey League final and lost in five games to the Vernon Vipers. “We built a friendship that has lasted the test of time,” Robinson said. “His wife has been calling my wife a lot and saying, ‘The band is back together.’” Shaun Clouston and Holick’s relationship has been strictly professional, one of mutual

respect developed throughout concurrent hockey lives. Holick, a 52-year-old Saskatoon product, has coached at the junior A level, in the BCHL and AJHL, and in the WHL, with the Ice from 2007 to 2010 and with the Prince George Cougars from 2012 to 2016. He was named WHL coach of the year in 2010. He toiled in the WHL in the 1980s, along with Shaun Clouston, who coached for the Medicine Hat Tigers from 2003 to 2019. “We coached against each other and I totally forgot we played against each other,” said Holick, who moved to Penticton when he was 15 and finished high school in the Peach City. “He was captain in Portland. I was in New West. I forgot he was in Tulsa when I played in Dallas in the Central League. We had some memories there.” Shaun Clouston was looking for someone with experience to replace Cory, a former NHL,

AHL and WHL bench boss who received rave reviews from Blazers’ majority owner Tom Gaglardi, most notably for his work on special teams. “It was a name that popped up,” Shaun Clouston said. “Mark is good friends with Colin and we’ve had some conversations regarding Yale prospects.” Holick most recently coached Abbotsford’s Yale Hockey Academy’s under-18 prep team, from 2018 to 2021. “Mark is a real personable guy,” Shaun Clouston said. “That’s important in today’s game with the young players. He’s got great presence and energy. I’m looking forward to it.” Holick was not looking to leave Yale, but the opportunity in Kamloops seemed a good fit. “I’ve talked to a lot of people,” said Holick, noting both him and his wife have family in Penticton, and his father used to run a business in Kamloops.

“They all said this team is ready to win and to compete for a title. That’s intriguing.” Cory Clouston told KTW in June he would have interest in becoming head coach of the Blazers if Shaun vacated the head coaching role to become general manager, a position that opened when Matt Bardsley left the team earlier this summer. Shaun Clouston, who was hired as head coach of the Blazers in June of 2019, was promoted in July to GM and head coach. “It’s not an easy decision [to leave], but it was an easy decision,” said Cory Clouston, who joined the Blazers in October of 2019 and helped the club to back-to-back B.C. Division championships. “To leave an organization that’s done a lot of good work in the last few years and has a great future wasn’t easy. But, in saying that, for me to focus on my daughter is a very easy decision.”

A female first for Holliday Maddox Holliday of Okanagan Golf Club made history at the 12th Kamloops City Junior Golf Championship on Monday at Rivershore Golf Links. She shot 81 to become the first female overall winner in tournament history. Carter Jones of Rivershore claimed the boys’ city championship, firing an 82 in tough conditions, with lightning in the area forcing a brief suspension of play. In the junior-junior division, Devin Varesi of Mount Paul Golf Course, Everett Quewezance of Tobiano Golf Course and Jax Gruber of Kamloops Golf and Country Club won gold, silver and bronze, respectively.

CROSSWORD ANSWERS FOUND ON A29

SUDOKU FUN BY THE NUMBERS

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

WORD SCRAMBLE

Rearrange the letters to spell something pertaining to eyesight.

Colin Darrell Frederick August 25, 1964 - August 6, 2021

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Son, Brother, Dad and Grandfather, Colin, at the age of 56, after suffering with M.S. for 25 years. Colin is survived by his loving Mom Doreen, brother Blaine, daughter Ashley (Joel), grandchildren Isaac, Aralynne and Cohen; Derek (Cali) and Taylor, cherished with much love. He was predeceased by Dad, Howard in 1996 and missed him everyday, as they would do so much together, including fishing, hockey and scouting. Dad was his hockey coach, as Colin was goalie for “Buffalo Sabres”. His Dad was his Cub leader and he learned to hunt with his Dad, bringing home many grouse. Colin was born in Vanderhoof, BC to Doreen and Howard Frederick. Colin moved to Prince Rupert, BC with his family, then to New Westminster and finally to Kamloops in 1968. He is survived by many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Jane (Mother of the Children), long time close friend from his school days, Dan Baudin (Ivana and Michael) and many other friends from school, work, Plura Hill United Church and friend Dana Levere from schools days, giving Colin support. Colin was manager of McDonalds in Valleyview, Burger King in Kamloops and Vernon. Employed with Canadian Tire in Vernon, then Yellowknife, NWT. as Department Manager until he developed MS in 1996 and moved back to Kamloops to assist Mom. Colin moved into Kamloops Seniors Village in 2004 for full care and made his home there until his passing on August 6, 2021. Colin especially loved teasing the girls.

There will be death between us,

Thank you to KSV care staff catering to Colin’s needs and requests. Thank you to GP. Dr. Howie.

If you wait until I am sleeping,

And I won’t hear you then. So, if you love me, even a little bit,

Donations can be made to the MS Society. Celebration of Life to be held on September 11, 2021 (His Dad’s Birthday). Location and Time to be Determined. Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

So I can treasure it.

Jack Andrew Tash 02/19/1966 – 08/23/1984

You both were taken from our lives abruptly, Unknown to you both in a peaceful way. A comfort to us to accept your departure. Those we love don’t go away they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.

Missing you so much and greatly loved by your wife, mother Jean, Michael your son and brother, grandchildren Benjamin and Carly Tash

Seven years have passed since you have left us and our hearts still ache from missing you. You are gone but never forgotten. Love from your family, Deane, Deanna, Janis, Sandra and Ted

Colin was very active at Plura Hills United Church with many dear friends there, particularly Ken Woodcock (Donna), a special friend, seeing hospital for visitation and prayer time together. Colin started the Kamloops MS Chapter, He also received the Presidents Award of MS in 2004. Colin had only one dream, to create the “Coast to Coast For MS”. He successfully did so in 2001 where he travelled to Cape Spear to raise awareness for MS and fundraised for a Local clinic in Kamloops. Colin and team “Coasting For A Cure” fundraised and participated in the MS Walk in Kamloops for many years. The last years were debilitating but Colin never gave up until the last few days of his life. Always eagerly awaiting a visit with his beloved Grandchildren, and Children, Brother, Mom who visited twice daily with “Benji”.

Sweet words on ice-cold stone.

Please tell me now.

Beverly Doreen Evans (White) November 1, 1926 - July 11, 2021

We are sad to announce the passing of our dear mother, Beverly Doreen Evans who passed peacefully at 94 on July 11, 2021, at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home in Kamloops, BC. She was predeceased by her husband Philip earlier this year in March, her parents (John and Eva White), and sisters June (Thompson) and Helen (Ross). She is survived by her seven children Donna (Harry) Smith, Brent Evans, Greg (Hope) Johnson, Sandra (Bob) Vollo, Jeffrey (Linda) Johnson, Michelle (Kent) Evans, Tammy Franzman and numerous nieces and nephews and the many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who enriched her life. Beverly was born in Mt. Lehman on the family farm in 1926. She was the middle of 3 girls born to John and Eva White. Predeceased by her mother at an early age, she was raised, along with her siblings, by her father who gave her guidance and mentorship through her early years. She spent some time in Vancouver where she gained an education in bookkeeping and office administrative skills. Beverly was married to Lawrence Johnson in 1948 and gave birth to her two sons, Gregory and Jeffery. She worked hard in her early years raising her boys until she finally met Phillip Evans; the man who would take her life in the direction of adventure, excitement, fun and true love; the kind of love that makes you wonder how they do it. With over 40 years of dancing, golfing and travelling together all-over western Canada and the US in their travel trailers, fishing and camping with life-long friends Phil and Bev set an example of how great a relationship can be, “Look at Us! (Vince Gill)” A mother, wife, grandmother and aunt, Bev was a strong and very witty girl. She always had a smart response to any sideways comments thrown at her. She was funny and always easy to talk to. She was a great listener and could offer up advice without being critical. Her love for her many grandchildren was evident in the many pictures she had of them throughout her home (and travel trailer wherever she went). She had a natural love for animals and plants treating both like people resulting in loyal pets and wholesome plants in her house and gardens. “Bev” will be missed by her family and many friends in both Kamloops/Kelowna, and the Lower Mainland where her sisters’ children reside. The family would like to express our gratitude for the outpouring of love and support for our mother over the past years. To the many friends and family members who came to see her in her last days. She was grateful for the visits. To Dr. (Chip) Bantock for his excellent accommodating and humorous bedside manor. To Steve and Melodie Vickers for the love and care they gave to mom over the many years they spent beside Mom and Dad and to the Kamloops Hospice Society whose amazing ability to provide such personal care and affection for mom in her final days. You are truly a special entity that we will be ever grateful for.

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director Every Wednesday in KTW!

Each Loss Each loss is very different, The pain is so severe. Will I ever stop missing This one I loved so dear? Good times we had together, The moments that we shared We didn’t have to tell each other How much we really cared. I never dreamed you’d go away, Never thought of sorrow. So sure you’d always be here Took for granted each tomorrow. Now my life is all confused Since you went away. You took a part of me And for help I daily pray. But when God sent you to me He never said that you were mine, That I could keep you always – Only borrowed for a time. Now, He’s called you home, I’m sad and I shed tears. Yet I’m glad He loaned you to me And we had these many years.

Q. What if I want my ashes to be buried in my country of birth? A. There are at least two things to consider. Firstly, how to get them there. Some countries have involved procedures for shipping. Secondly, how to secure the plot in your homeland. Again, there are rules and procedures. We can help if you’d like.

May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of despair

Ship 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.

Andy “The Duke” Davidowski On July 29, 2021, Andy “The Duke” Davidowski passed away at the age of 89 at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC. He is survived by his wife of 57 years Lorraine, his three children Ken (Cheryl) and Carrie of Kamloops, Bob (Carla) of Nassau, Bahamas, his grandchildren Zelinda and Ty as well as his greatgranddaughter Raina all from Kamloops. Andy is predeceased by his parents Wasyl and Martha and by all his siblings; John, Annie, Mary, Pearl, Nick and Edith. Andy was an honest kind-hearted friend, father, husband, grandfather, great-grandfather, teacher and well loved man. He loved spending his spare time coaching, refereeing football, playing card games mainly bridge, and sitting around a campfire. His presence always left a lasting impression on everyone he met. Andy was a man of few words, but when he spoke you listened. His sense of humour was never ending and he always had a funny saying, wise quote, story or joke to share. These were usually about life lessons, and even though the meaning may not have been obvious at the time it always came to light.

Leona (Lee) Sylvia Montgomery Tremblay It’s with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our mother Leona (Lee) Sylvia Montgomery Tremblay on August 4, 2021 at Royal Inland Hospital. Our mom has gone to join our dad Rudy. Mom was born August 28, 1941 at the Pavilion Indian Reserve. Mom is survived by her children Marlene Tremblay of Jonquiere, Quebec, Marvin Tremblay (Norma) of Nanaimo, Laverne Tremblay (Keith Morgan), Sandi Tremblay and Rod Tremblay all of Kamloops. She will be missed by her grandchildren Kristy TremblayMandracchia (Johnny), Audrey Gagnon (Dominic Bourget), Diana Moore (Kyle Wiest), Michael Tremblay, Rikki Banks (Aaron), great-grandchildren Talon Tremblay, Ayden Wiest, Brooklyn Banks, Corbin Wiest, Grayson Banks, Kade Tremblay, Bentley Banks, Rylan Tremblay, Laeticia Bourget, and Megan Bourget. She is survived by her sister Debi Shintah (Robert) of Pavilion and brother Danny Montgomery of Wenatchee, Washington. She will also be missed by many cousins, nieces and nephews. Leona was predeceased by her husband Rudy (Rodolphe) Tremblay, great-grandson Seth Wiest, sisters Rose Perry and Vicki Pierro and brothers Charlie Montgomery, Ronnie Montgomery and Walter James. Mom was proud to a member of the Bonaparte Indian Band and made sure she instilled that pride in her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mom’s parents were Lizzie Morgan of Bonaparte and John (Jack) Montgomery Jr. of Big Bar. Her grandparents were John Morgan and Louisa Casimir of Bonaparte. John Montgomery Sr. of Riske Creek and Rose Hartman of Big Bar. Mom was raised in Big Bar, Hat Creek, Bonaparte, Cache Creek, Ashcroft, Vancouver and Kamloops. Mom never had the opportunity to finish school and after she had made sure each of us graduated from high school then mom went on to complete grade 12 in 1996. Mom and Dad moved to Clearwater for work in 1963 and this is where they raised their family. Mom was a very involved parent and volunteered countless hours scorekeeping for hockey and baseball. She spent many hours cooking big pots of chili, stew and hamburger soup to feed us and other hockey and baseball players that needed a meal. She drove us to the many activities we were involved in. Mom was an excellent seamstress and sewed many of our clothes. In mom’s younger days she would spend time with her grandparents at Hat Creek. She has fond memories of haying, riding horses, fishing, canning, cooking and at her grandmother’s insistence ironing everything including the underwear. Our mom had a strength and persistence that knew no bounds. Once she made up her mind about something nothing would deter her from her mission. We were lucky to have a mom who was always there for each of us and had the persistence that at times drove us crazy, but we also appreciated her strength.
