Province expands vaccine mandate SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A number of changes have been announced to B.C.’s COVID-19 response, including mandatory vaccination for anyone who works in a healthcare facility, eased restrictions in Interior Health for events and settings using B.C.’s vaccine card system, third doses for some who are clinically extremely vulnerable. Effective Oct. 26, anyone in B.C. who works in a health-care facility, including home and community care workers, will Levi Manson holds a photo of his late brother, Aaron, joined by mom Troylana and dad Bart. need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 under a new order MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW from provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. “This includes all workers, students, physicians, residents, contractors and volunteers who made him, out of the house on an The day Aaron died, April work in a health-care facility, MICHAEL POTESTIO April afternoon earlier this year. 20, 2021, was a parent’s worst including contracted facilities,” LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE michael@kamloopsthisweek.com The 61-year-old father of two nightmare.

need to undergo regular testing, Henry said. “But the ultimate end for people who choose not to be immunized and work in health-care is leave without pay,” she added. Health Minister Adrian Dix estimated the mandate applies to upwards of 100,000 people, but noted vaccination rates among nurses are already in the high 80s, percentage wise, and about 96 per cent among physicians. While the BC Nurses’ Union encourages its members and others to get vaccinated against communicable diseases, it is opposed to vaccine mandates, as outlined in a position statement on vaccination the union released just last month: “Employers should work with nurses and other health-care workers on developing supportive vaccination policies to achieve high vaccination rates in the health-care workforce. Evidence shows that punitive or coercive vaccination policies in workplaces can create conflict, damage trust and may unintentionally heighten vaccine hesitancy by feeding into false narratives on vaccine safety.”

A Kamloops mother is sounding the alarm after her teenage son was attacked by a group of youths on Overlander Beach — an assault she believes is connected to the fact her son is a transgender youth. The woman, who asked that her name not be published due to concern about retribution, said her 17-yearold son was at the beach on the north side of the Thompson River, near Overlanders Bridge, early Saturday evening when he became separated from his group of friends. She said her son was then set upon by another group of youths who targeted his choice of fashion — including a dog collar he wears — before assaulting him. She said her son was taunted, punched and kicked, made to walk like a dog and, most seriously, forced to cut his own arm with a knife he carries. “They called him a freak, among numerous vulgar things, and the beating only stopped once he gave up trying to defend himself from seven people,” she said. When her son finally reconnected with friends, they walked with him to nearby Kamloops Alliance Church, from where police were called and an ambulance took him to Royal Inland Hospital for treatment of injuries. Along with various bruises and abrasions, the teen received five stitches for the cuts on his arm. The teen’s mother is concerned about his safety, noting that while the teens arrested have curfew orders prohibiting them from leaving their homes between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., there is no guarantee

they will abide by those conditions. “It’s not just them yelling names,” she said. “They took it to the next level. It scared the shit out of me that it could have been worse. The ones that aren’t afraid to act, those are the ones that scare me.” The mother said she wants to publicize the assault to bring awareness to others about what is happening in the community to youth who might be labelled by some as being different, noting the assault may have been recorded on a cellphone by one of the assailants. “If I found out this, or something worse, happened to someone else

and I didn’t speak out, I couldn’t live with myself,” she said. Kamloops RCMP Const. Crystal Evelyn told KTW officers responded to an assault complaint at Overlander Beach at about 8:15 p.m. on Saturday. She said officers arrested three youths in connection with the assault, all of whom were released into the custody of their guardians, with a future court date and conditions, pending charges confirmed by Crown. Anyone who witnessed the Sept. 11 assault, has video of the incident or any other information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-31947.

Summer 2021 was the second-hottest on record SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTER

sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

Just one summer in the past 130 years was hotter than the summer of 2021. In 1958, Kamloops saw an average temperature of 22.3 C across June, July and August, known as meteorological summer. This past summer came close — within 0.1 degrees — of tying that record, with an average temperature of 22.2 degrees. But Kamloops did break its all-time high temperature, when the mercury hit 47.3 degrees on June 29, scorching the previous record of 41.7 on July 16, 1941. There were 50 days in June, July and August in which the mercury exceeded 30 C. It was also among the top five driest summers, with just 49 millimetres of rain falling across the three months, compared to the average of 93 mm. But the little rain Kamloops did receive made a difference in terms of temperature. Environment Canada

warning preparedness meteorologist Doug Lundquist detailed the summer that was to KTW. Lundquist said that without the few showers Kamloops received throughout the summer, it would have set a record as the hottest ever, as many other nearby areas did this summer. The phenomenon that came to be known as the heat dome was responsible for the elevated temperatures in late June and early July — but don’t call it that. “We use dome in Canada for arctic air, and that’s more of a typical dome, whereas the heat is air rising and falling. ‘Dome’ gives the idea of a boundary and there’s not really a boundary,” Lundquist said. The heat came from an entrenched ridge of high pressure, Lundquist said, calling it uncharacteristically strong and lasting longer than normal. Typically, that ridge arrives at the end of August, Lundquist said, but by that time, the sun doesn’t have

the power it did in late June, explaining the rarity of the extreme heat seen in late June in B.C. Lundquist said that while the physical explanation for the heat was the ridge of high pressure, climate change was also another factor in reaching those record highs. That heat was responsible for a staggering number of deaths over the summer. The BC Coroners’ Service reported 569 premature deaths in the province due to the heat seen from June 20 to July 29. Those deaths occurred mostly in the Lower Mainland, where air conditioning is less common, but 89 people died in Interior Health over that period. Lundquist said this year accounted for more weatherrelated deaths than he’s ever seen in his 34-year career. Lundquist said a colder period is likely in the next couple of weeks, including this week, with snow possible at elevations down to 1,200 metres, meaning there’s a chance areas just above Aberdeen could receive a temporary dusting.

Gathering restrictions relaxed in Interior Health From A1

“Vaccination provides an important layer of protection against many communicable diseases and BCNU believes that education is the most appropriate means of achieving high vaccination rates for nurses, other healthcare workers and the general public,” the union’s position statement reads. “Like any medical treatment or procedure, each individual must have the opportunity to inform themselves of the potential risks and benefits of immunization, based on their understanding of the evidence and in discussion with their family physician or other care provider.” Another announcement

on Monday involved the relaxing of health restrictions in the Interior Health region for events or settings that use the province’s vaccine card system to restrict entry to those who are vaccinated. Additional health measures were imposed in the Interior Health region in late August, following a surge of cases in the region. The measures included restrictions on gathering and attendance limits for organized indoor and outdoor events. This means that indoor organized events that were previously limited to just 50 people will now be able to allow up to 50 per cent of capacity, if the vaccine card system is in place. Henry confirmed this applies apply to events such

as Western Hockey League games. (In the wake of the changes, the Kamloops Blazers altered its pre-season schedule, adding a home game against Prince George this Friday.) Finally, the province also announced third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine would be made available to some who have been deemed clinically extremely vulnerable to the disease. Henry explained that those who are severely immunocompromised do not respond to the vaccine as well as others, which is why a third dose is necessary. That group represents approximately 15,000 people who will be notified this week to book appointments.

Healthy dialogue, healthy community

A

s a city councillor, I have seen the extreme tensions, emotions and overt hostilities that have arisen in Kamloops in various ways because of COVID-19 issues. I am writing this column with the hope we can come together as community members and make more of an effort to respect each other. If there is one thing about COVID that we can all probably agree on, it is that it is going to be with us for quite some time, so we had better learn to live with it — and with each other — in the process. It is absolutely critical that we keep conversational channels open at this time, reducing emotional hostilities at every opportunity. I have some concerns about certain aspects of public health policies and believe hospitals should be sacred ground, as staff and patients deserve the right to safety and easy access. I admit to having at times getting caught up in fixed positions being presented by one side or another in debate on government policies, which are radically changing life as we have known it, without much opportunity for anyone to question. But I am now realizing that getting locked into a fixed position is not healthy for me or those around me, and how important it is to continue to pay close attention to the ever-changing realities of this COVID world and stay engaged in the community con-

CITY HALL versation as it evolves. It is easy to label or dismiss people with opposing opinions, but when we paint all of them as hillbillies, tin foil hatters or uneducated, then we become part of the problem. I’ve met many intelligent people on both sides: employees in the hospitality sector, educators and those working for Interior Health. But if they find themselves in the minority, they fear speaking out and they fear losing employment or being ostracized in their profession or community. Before COVID, they were us, our neighbours. Dialogue, rather than debate, can be a communication tool that allows people to understand other viewpoints without pitting themselves against each others’ different perspectives. With respectful dialogue, there is no defending opinions, no counterpoints; instead, you listen to their viewpoint. I am promising myself to stay

open-minded when hearing what my friends and fellow community members need to express and not attempt to force my own views on anyone else. I am very concerned when seeing how community COVID dialogue seems to be gravitating toward loud and abrasive monologues that discourage further communication and I am fearful of the long-term consequences to our beautiful community. I accept that there is a lot of uncertainty and fear that is helping create this unwholesome scenario, but I am encouraging people to nevertheless make an effort to honour inclusivity, civility and mutual respect without judgment in all words and actions as we go forward. We are all in this together, but we are in many different boats. We all want our loved ones safe, able to work and for this pandemic to end as soon as possible. On this journey, we need to take care of ourselves and each other. Eating well, sleeping well and taking care of our mental and physical health is crucial now, more than ever before. We need healthy dialogue and healthy people to grow and thrive in our community. Take good care of yourselves.

Kamloops Coun. Denis Walsh says we need more dialogue and less debate in these COVID days. Kamloops has recently seen protests against the vaccine card program (below), followed by a response of gatherings of support for health-care workers. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE

THIS MOUNTIE GOT HER MAN — A COFFEE Editor: I was in line for coffee at a Tim Hortons drive-thru on Sept. 10. In front of me was an RCMP cruiser driven by a young female police officer. I saw her in her rearview mirror and wondered what would make a young woman want to become an officer.

provide in-person care when there were few other options during the pandemic. In the summer of 2020, we faced a manpower crisis, with many of the physicians simply unable to continue with the demands of full-time ER shifts in conjunction with their KUCC shifts. However, we had a core of physicians who had some flexibility and who felt the need to continue to provide this essential community service. With the assistance of the Divisions of Family Practice, we began recruiting in earnest. Our supporting staff were committed to continue and we had hope. In September 2020, again with support from the Divisions of Family Practice, we began regular meetings with Interior Health to make our and the community’s voices heard, expressing clearly the systemic concerns we had should we be forced to close. During these meetings, there were many different attendees from Interior Health, every meeting

bringing new faces and new titles representing the health authority. Our goal was simply to secure a relatively small of amount of shortterm support to stay functional in care provision while we actively recruited. There was indeed interest from new physicians, but unfortunately, this enthusiasm was not matched by Interior Health. To quote an Interior Health representative at one of these meetings: “Why is this our problem?” In the end, we had no choice but to close our doors. While I recognize the KUCC closure is not the sole cause of the current ER crisis at RIH, we certainly had a positive impact, providing timely care and followup to 60 patients per day. These patients are now cast adrift with few options for care. In that respect it is your problem. It is all of our problem. Kamloops and area citizens deserve better from our health authority.

A doctor in Sun Peaks has penned a letter to patients of the Sun Peaks Health Centre after seeing an increase in the number of patients seeking letters exempting them from having to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. In addition to noting a doctor would be committing fraud if issuing a letter to a patient who does not qualify for an exemption (the criteria for which numbers three), Dr.

Shane Barclay makes a number of comments regarding the safety of the vaccines. For example, Barclay notes the risk of developing a blood clot after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is far less than the risk of developing a blood clot from the birth control pill and smoking. In addition, he addresses claims that the mRNA vaccines are too new and can alter one’s DNA. “Actually, mRNA technol-

ogy has been around since the nineteen-nineties. Most vaccines contain killed viruses or virus particles which allow our bodies to develop antibodies for protection. mRNA vaccines don’t contain any virus at all,” Barclay writes. “Instead, mRNA vaccines carry instructions of the spike protein, which tell our cells how to actually make the spike protein. “Since the spike protein is a ‘foreign protein’ unknown to our

body, we develop antibodies to it which in turn confer protection to the actual Covid virus. “As soon as the mRNA instructions are complete our cells destroy them. No part of this vaccine goes into our cell nucleus where our DNA is, so no part of the vaccine interacts or alters our DNA. Elegant and safe.” To read Barclay’s letter in full, go online to kamloopsthisweek. com and search “Sun Peaks doctor has message.”

Kamloops MLAs call for credible RIH staffing plan SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops’ two MLAs are calling for a “credible plan” and a timeline to remedy the staffing crisis at Royal Inland Hospital. Todd Stone and Peter Milobar, B.C. Liberals who represent KamloopsSouth Thompson and Kamloops-North Thompson, respectively, called upon Premier John Horgan and Health Minister Adrian Dix to be held to account for conditions seen at Royal Inland Hospital in recent weeks — and longer. The MLAs made themselves available to media on Monday morning. Staff shortages have been particularly evident in the hospital’s emergency room, with the death of a 70-year-old woman in the ER waiting room reported last week, long wait times and an exodus of ER nursing staff in recent months. Pressure has mounted on the hospital over the summer from a fourth wave of COVID-19, including a second outbreak at the hospital, relocation of wildfire evacuees and anti-vaccination protests, which briefly disrupted operations and demoralized health-care workers. “We’re getting stories every single day from nurses that are completely burnt out — nurses who are saying they feel broken, that there’s no reason to be optimistic the situation is going to improve any time soon. “The system is broken at the moment and it’s a dire crisis,” Stone said. Late last week, Dix promised a “full and comprehensive review” on the death of the 70-year-old woman in the RIH ER waiting room, but stopped short on providing specific steps as to how the staffing shortage will be remedied.

Days later, on Saturday, Interior Health issued a statement on ER staffing levels at RIH, saying that a full complement includes 13 nurses and noting recent hiring initiatives, including two permanent full-time staff starting soon and temporary nurses being brought in to support permanent staff — part of $1 million allotted to the hospital’s ER earlier this year by the provincial government. On Monday, Dix addressed the matter once again during a COVID-19 press conference, repeating his acknowledgment of the challenges seen at Kamloops’ hospital, which he said is currently at 117 per cent. Dix also said Royal Inland Hospital had 32 COVID-19 patients, accounting for about half of all hospitalized COVID patients in the Interior Health region — and of those patients, 13 were in the ICU. The two MLAs said they have both received emails from nurses, doctors and other health-care workers, stating often there are only three or four nurses on duty in the ER. “Up to one-quarter of all nursing staff in the ER have left the department in one form or another, whether that’s on stress leave, quitting outright or asking to be transferred to other departments,” Stone said. While the two permanent nursing staff members are expected to begin working in the ER soon, MLA Stone isn’t satisfied with the response. “That is simply not good enough. That fails those nurses, that fails all health-care providers and, most importantly, that fails patients,” Stone said. He called upon Horgan to come to Kamloops and speak directly with healthcare workers and media.

THE FINAL DEBATE BEFORE ELECTION DAY

T

here was an interesting moment during Monday night’s debate amongst KamloopsThompson-Cariboo federal election candidates. NDP candidate Bill Sundhu channeled a question from Ronald Reagan’s campaign during the landmark 1980 U.S. election. Back then, Reagan, the challenger, looked into the camera during a debate with incumbent U.S. president Jimmy Carter and asked voters: “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” It remains one of the most effective questions/comments ever made during a campaign. On Monday night, Sundhu noted the riding has been led by a Conservative/Canadian Alliance MP for the past two decades and asked: “After 20 years of the same representation, are you better off?” It is a good question, then and now, but it should be noted the two Conservative MPs in Kamloops this century were not always in government. For the past six years, in fact, whether we are better off today is a query completely connected to the Liberals — and local

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS candidate Jesse McCormick. But the reality of the election locally is that Sundhu, and many others, see it as a race between Sundhu the New Democrat and Conservative candidate Frank Caputo, with the Liberals likely finishing third, followed by the rest. Whether that pans out remains to be seen, but this is the scenario upon which Monday’s debate was held. Sundhu focused on Caputo, Caputo focused on leader Erin O’Toole’s plans and McCormick focused on his experience working on Parliament Hill. Refreshingly, Green candidate Iain Currie focused on the fact

political hubris prevents parties from realizing (and acting on the fact) there is consensus on myriad issues, as was seen during the debate when candidates spoke on housing, child care and climate change. Yes, the seven candidates responded to questions on various issues — homelessness, housing, child care, crime, climate change, Indigenous reconciliation and tourism — but much of what they said can be read in the party platforms, online links to which can be found on the facing page. There were some interesting comments that appeared to be original, perhaps none more so than Independent candidate Wayne Allan’s opposition to gun control laws, arguing residents need weapons as animals, including coyotes, roam into town after being displaced by wildfires, We can assume Allan has cornered the roadrunner vote. People’s Party candidate Corally Delwo made a strong point during discussion on climate change, arguing reforestation policy needs to be revamped, pointing out the need to use deciduous and other species — an issue environmental groups have raised this past summer — rather than allow the

planting of “for-profit trees.” While the evening was, for the most part, cordial, McCormick inserted a barb during a discussion on tourism recovery from the pandemic. He referred to Caputo’s nonanswer to a question on B.C.’s vaccine card program and claimed Conservatives “are cuddling up to anti-vaxxers.” That Liberal tact of connecting Conservatives to anti-vaxxers is one that is being used more frequently as the campaign nears the end, with leader Justin Trudeau using it often in the past week. On that note, the two-pronged, yes or no question relating to vaccination drew varied answers. The question: Do you support B.C.’s vaccine card program and are you vaccinated against COVID-19? Currie, Sundhu and McCormick all answered “yes” to both queries. Caputo said he has been vaccinated, but did not answer the question of whether he supports the vaccination card program, instead noting it is a provincial health order and that people with concerns should contact their MLA. A “yes” or “no” answer would

have been more impressive than a reply that merely adhered to the leader of the party’s stance on vaccine mandates. Delwo, of course, noted her opposition to such programs and refused to divulge whether she has been vaccinated (which, I suspect, will preclude her from enjoying a pint at a pub for the foreseeable future). Surprising, at least to me, were the forceful comments from both independent candidates as they stated their opposition to B.C.’s vaccine card program. Allan declared he was against the program and said he is not vaccinated, later adding: “I resent the fact the Liberals have taken a billion-dollar bounty out on the unvaccinated people of Canada. This, to me, is tryanny.” O’Brien confirmed he is vaccinated because he cares for elderly relatives, but noted he is opposed to the program. “I cannot imagine a world where I’d force someone else to take the vaccine.” The election is on Sept. 20.

FEDERAL ELECTION • SEPT. 20, 2021

Examining the issues as voting day nears Here are summaries of where the four parties outside of Quebec with seats in Parliament stand on various issues, as compiled by the Vancouver Sun. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for the full list of issues and parties’ responses to them. COST OF LIVING Liberals In addition to housing and child care commitments, the Liberal platform includes promises to reduce student-loan burdens on students and increase payments to seniors as measures to help Canadians deal with the cost of living. The party would expand the Canada caregiver credit into a tax-free benefit, increase OAS and the survivors benefit in the CPP. It would eliminate interest on student loans while increasing the income requirement to begin repaying loans to $50,000 a year. Conservatives The Conservatives promise to reduce the cost of living starts with a month-long GST holiday this fall after the election. Lowering prices by increasing competition is another key promise, with proposals to open telecom services to international competitors, which should reduce cellphone and internet prices. The party would increase the Canada Workers Benefit to $5,000 as a direct benefit rather than tax refund. NDP The NDP promises on affordability include increasing the availability and amounts of employment insurance so those on regular or special benefits don’t receive less than $2,000 a month. On taxation, the NDP calls for “fair and progressive taxation,” starting with a temporary 15-per-cent COVID-19 excess profit tax on corporations.

For more information ... Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com to read what the parties have planned in terms of climate change, COVID-19 response, drug policy/opioid crisis, job creation, child care, Indigenous relations, seniors’ care and immigration, as summarized by the Vancouver Sun. For detailed information on party platforms, go online to: • Liberal Party of Canada (liberal.ca); • Conservative Party of Canada (conservative.ca); • New Democratic Party of Canada (ndp.ca); • Green Party of Canada (greenparty.ca); • People’s Party of Canada (peoplespartyofcanada.ca) Greens The Greens would establish a comprehensive, guaranteed livable income program as a core element in expanding universal programs to Canadians under a platform promise of “life with dignity” to address affordability. The party would abolish postsecondary tuition at a cost of $10.2 billion a year and cancel all federally held student-loan debt to create universal post-secondary education. HOUSING Liberals Justin Trudeau promises to place a tax on property flipping and to ban blind bidding. He

pledges a two-year ban on foreigners’ purchases of housing in Canada. Similar to other parties, the Liberals would make massive financial contributions to housing supply — by building, preserving or repairing 1.4-million homes. The party also pledges to bring in new tax credit programs to make it easier for first-time buyers to borrow. Conservatives The Conservatives intend to ban foreigners’ purchases of property in Canada for the next two years. The party proposes to build one-million homes over the next three years and to release 15 per cent of government-owned real estate for

new builds or to convert them into rental properties. It seeks to reduce the need for mortgage stress tests. It would require municipalities that receive federal funding for public transit to increase housing density along those transit routes. NDP The NDP wants to impose a 20 per cent tax on offshore buyers of homes in Canada. It is also promising to increase the tax on capital gains to 75 per cent on houses bought for investment purposes. The NDP would create 500,000 affordable housing units and “preserve” 1.7-million homes. The party will work to “increase transparency about who owns properties.” Greens The Green party would create 300,000 low-income housing units over the next decade, increasing spending for social housing from $1.6 billion today. It would implement a retroactive benefit for tenants. It would declare a “national housing and homelessness emergency” and leader Annamie Paul says she will rework the mandate of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation towards supporting development of affordable non-profit housing. The Greens would also create a dedicated minister of housing. HEALTH CARE Liberals The Liberal party would spend $3 billion to hire 7,500 family doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners and $400 million to expand virtual primary care. An additional $6 billion would be spent reduce waiting times for tests and surgeries. It would increase student loan forgiveness for health professionals, including dentists, pharmacists, social workers and mental health practitioners who choose to

work in rural communities. It pledges $4.5 billion over five years under a new Canada Mental Health Treatment transfer payment to the provinces, and a three-digit mental health support hotline. Conservatives The Conservative party would increase health-care transfers to the provinces, totalling $60 billion over 10 years, while encouraging provinces to ensure access to mental-health care for one million more Canadians every year. It would create a three-digit suicide hotline and a $150-million three-year pilot program for non-profits and charities delivering mental health programs. It would encourage employers to add mental-health coverage in private plans by paying 25 per cent of the cost through tax credits for the first three years. NDP The NDP would create a universal prescription-drug program by the end of 2022 at a cost of $10.7 billion a year. It pledges $250 million to address the shortage of nurses and other health-care workers. While the party promises to work with the provinces to create universal dental, mental health, eye and hearing care, those goals are aspirational, with no deadline nor budgets attached. It’s the same with its promises to work on tackling waiting times, and expand virtual health care and palliative care. Greens The Green party would expand public health care to include prescription drugs and basic dental care along with full dental care for low-income children. The Greens plan to develop national health care guidelines that promote active lifestyles as well as healthy diets and choices. The promises have not been costed.

The City of Kamloops is outlining what public facilities are affected by the new proof-of-vaccine mandate. Proof of vaccine (one dose) is now required before accessing a number of events or settings, including restaurants, pubs, bars and lounges, nightclubs, casinos, movie theatres, fitness centres, gyms and sporting events. After Oct. 24, proof of two doses will be required. City facilities, events and programs

that will require people to show their provincial vaccine app or card and government-issued identification include the Tournament Capital Centre, Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre (fitness centre only), all city arenas and every community hall Those arenas include Brocklehurst Arena, McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre, Sandman Centre, and Valleyview Arena, while community centres include the Hal Rogers Activity Centre, Heritage House, Valleyview Community Hall, West Highlands Community Centre and the Yacht Club. Proof of vaccination, however, will not

be required at city hall and city hall-related buildings, nor at fire stations or RCMP offices. Proof of vaccination will not be required for conducting city business, such as attending a meeting, paying a bill or applying for a permit. Adults supporting children and youth during recreation and sport programs (parents, coaches, volunteers) will not be required to show a vaccine card and one won’t be required for sport and recreation programs for children and youth ages 18 and under or for aquatic programs and public swimming. Masks are still mandatory in all city facilities. “This is a new way of doing business for everyone, and we appreciate the public’s patience as we adjust to new operations following the provincial health orders,” said Linda Stride, the city’s recreation, health and wellness supervisor. The vaccine card being implemented comes in digital and paper versions, but is ultimately accessed online via the provincial government’s website at gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard.

Senor Froggy staff in Kamloops begin their paid week off MICHAEL POTESTIO

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A local Mexican restaurant has decided to close its doors for a week to give its staff time off to tend to their mental health. Rob Stodola, owner of the two Senor Froggy eateries in Kamloops, is giving his staff a mandatory one-week paid vacation as myriad challenges — the COVID-19 pandemic, regional wildfires and smoky skies and the discovery of probable graves at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School — have taken their toll. The North Shore and downtown locations will be officially closed from Monday, Sept. 13, to Monday, Sept. 20, with the 40 employees back at work on Tuesday, Sept. 21. “Putting our people first is our top priority, so before the rush of school fundraiser lunches begins, we will be taking a one-week mental-health break,” an email from the restaurant stated. As an independent, family-owned business, the decision was an easier one to implement than it would have been for a franchisee. Stodola told KTW the idea of a week off was discussed earlier this summer, when staff members were reportedly feeling burned out. Management came together and decided a break was not only needed, but possible.

“We looked at it and said, you know, the only way we get a break is if everything shut down because, as a business owner, you’re on-call 24/7,” Stodola said. He said it’s not something they would have contemplated in a normal year, but given all the stresses, it was something they felt needed to happen for staff retention, morale and mental health. Stodola said a number of his employees are Indigenous, noting the Tk’emlups discovery weighed heavily on them. The lingering pandemic has also been stressful on staff in general. Last summer, Stodola said, some staff were being bombarded by customer mistreatment over the enforcement of COVID-19 safety protocols. He said that hasn’t been part of the need for a break this week. “This is not about abusive customers, this is about the cumulative effect of a heat wave, a month-and-a-half of smoke, a global pandemic that just won’t stop, a residential school tragedy that’s just devastating,” Stodola said, noting some employees have also had family members pass away recently from causes unrelated to COVID-19. Stodola said the week off needed to be paid; otherwise, it wouldn’t have relieved any stress for the staff. While conceding the paid time off will be a major financial hit, Stodola said staff will be better off for it.

Son was trying to get clear of his addiction From A1

Aaron would also have been starting the final year in pursuit of his bachelor of business degree at Thompson Rivers University. As a tribute, TRU will be lowering its flags to halfmast for Aaron — something the post-secondary institution is known to do for various students and causes, and which was offered to the Manson family when they notified the university to remove Aaron from his classes. While there is no ceremony, the Mansons — Bart, Troylana and older brother Levi — plan to be on campus on Monday, grab a coffee and a bite to eat and do some of the things Aaron liked to do, such as a yoga and a hike in Peterson Creek Park. The family members said Aaron felt ashamed of his drug addiction — something they feel was a major contributor in his death, alongside a toxic drug supply. They have decided to speak publicly about their son’s passing in the hopes it will help break the stigma felt by others struggling with addiction issues amidst the opioid crisis. They feel robbed of Aaron’s potential, saying

that for the past two years, he had been making great strides to get clear of his cocaine addiction and was turning into the man they knew he could be — eating healthily, exercising, meditating and taking private counselling for his drug habit — when any chance of getting back on track was erased by a fatal relapse. He had also recently moved back into his parent’s home to avoid the temptation he felt when he lived on his own. “Everything you could imagine a person in recovery could do,” Bart said. “He was working so hard.” He said his son would go for months without using drugs before slipping up and using again. Troylana said her son could see his cocaine use was affecting him and his relationships and made an effort to change. Levi, a recent graduate of TRU’s nursing program, told KTW his brother confided in him that he didn’t like the way the drugs made him feel. NOTHING SEEMED AMISS LEADING UP TO DEATH Aaron had been at a friend’s house the night before he died, returning home by about 1:30 a.m. When Bart got up at

about 6 a.m., Aaron was just on his way to bed. He said his son told him he had slipped up and used while out, but was feeling all right. “There was no red flags. I said we had been through these slips before, not a problem, get a good sleep,” Bart said. “When he gets up, we’ll talk about it, make a plan and get back on the recovery path.” His son went off to bed and everything seemed normal. “If he had been at all concerned, if he could have just said, ‘I don’t feel quite right. Could you check on me once in a while?’ But I think [with] the guilt and shame, he wanted to hide it,” Bart said. Troylana went to check on her son at about noon, having heard him snoring a couple of hours earlier. When he didn’t respond to her, she shook his arm, thinking he was in a deep sleep, but she couldn’t wake him up. She told KTW she knew right away it was an overdose. She grabbed his leg, shook it and hollered, ‘Bart, I can’t wake him up!” Bart pulled his son onto the floor and began CPR. See A CALL, A17

NOTICE TO MOTORISTS SUMMIT DOWNTOWN ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION CONNECTION: SUMMIT DRIVE MULTI-USE PATHWAY

Sept 13, 2021 through June 2022

The City has contracted Urban Appeal Landscaping to construct the Summit Drive Multiuse Pathway as part of the Summit-Downtown Active Transportation Connection, starting on September 13, 2021 at Whiteshield Cres South, working towards Notre Dame Drive. Anticipated hours of work will be from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday. One travel lane in each direction will be maintained, but single-lane alternating traffic may occasionally be in place during off-peak hours.

A call for safe supply From A16

“In my head, I’m going through the actions because I’ve been trained that way, but I’d get these flashes — this is my son. This just can’t be real,” Bart said. Levi, who was downstairs getting changed for the last shift of his nursing practicum, heard the commotion and came upstairs, where he wound up administering naloxone to his younger brother, but it had no effect. Paramedics responded within minutes, but Aaron had died. The family hasn’t yet received a full toxicology report to determine what drugs were in Aaron’s system, but has been informed it was an opioid overdose, Troylana told KTW. ASHAMED OF THE ADDICTION The family said cocaine was something Aaron came across in social settings — when he worked construction in northern Alberta after high school and at parties in Kamloops when he returned home to attend university. Troylana said that while others in Aaron’s social circle could use drugs recreationally, her son couldn’t and would use more later on, sometimes disappearing for days. “With Aaron, if he had a drink, he’d have to have a second drink, and if he had a second drink, then he was on the phone calling for cocaine,” Bart said, noting his son had attention deficit disorder, suffered from anxiety and seemed vulnerable to substance-abuse chal-

lenges. “We all have different vulnerabilities. The person beside him could be trying the exact same stuff and never have the challenges that Aaron ended up with,” Bart said. Levi noted the prevalence of party drugs amongst young people. “For so many young people, especially at TRU and [while] partying, the fact of the matter is cocaine is everywhere and all it takes is trying it once for some people to get into it more and more, and I think Aaron was someone who was around it and he developed an addiction to it,” Levi said. He said his brother didn’t want to be known as someone who used drugs. “He was very ashamed of his addiction,” Bart said. “He didn’t want anybody to know that he had weaknesses. He cared about others and the challenges other people had, but he didn’t want anyone to worry about him.” Levi said his brother wouldn’t let his family members know ahead of time when he had urges to use, but would be transparent and confess afterward to them that he had used. A CALL FOR EDUCATION AND SAFE SUPPLY Asked for their thoughts on B.C.’s steps to date — registered nurses being able to prescribe medications to treat opioid addictions and safe-injection sites — Troylana said it’s not enough. She said more treatment beds and safe-injection and drug-testing sites wouldn’t

help someone like her son, who would avoid such things because he did not want to be associated with using illicit drugs. The Mansons would like to see a safe and regulated drug supply available in a liquor or cannabis store setting — the presence of which could help lessen the stigma associated with drug users. Troylana said she uses her son as an archetype in her advocacy for a safe supply, noting she has heard many stories of people just like him since Aaron’s death. She said someone like her son would not plan out their cocaine use — it would be an impulse buy made at two o’clock in the morning. In calling for a safe supply of illicit drugs, Troylana said it is needed so those trying to stay clean can have every opportunity to do so without risking their lives in a relapse, noting a gambler who relapses doesn’t have to worry about dying from his or her vice. Bart noted the drug decriminalization system in Portugal has had positive impacts and likened a safe drug supply to the prohibition era, pointing out that bootlegged batches of illicit alcohol were known to kill people until liquor was again regulated and controlled. He said more education is something that could help end the stigma of drug use, which is why the Mansons have decided to donate money to TRU to fund speakers to visit university classes to discuss mentalhealth and substance-use challenges.

KTW finalist for two Webster Awards Kamloops This Week has finalists in two categories of the 2021 Webster Awards, the annual hallmark of journalistic

excellence in British Columbia. KTW reporter Jessica Wallace is a finalist in the Excellence in Community

Dr. Preety Desai

WHY DO MY GUMS BLEED AFTER A CLEANING? Part II

Reporting category for her series of stories detailing spending at the Thompson-Nicola Regional District. The stories led to an RCMP criminal investigation that is ongoing, a TNRD board decision to have a forensic audit undertaken by a third party and wholesale changes to spending policies at the regional district. Wallace is competing against Tori Marlan, Jimmy Thomson, Brishti Basu of the Capital Daily for their story, Rape allegations connected to a popular bar lead to a reckoning for Victoria’s restau-

rant culture, and Dustin Godfrey of Burnaby Now for his story, The Last Pin Topples. KTW editor Christopher Foulds is a finalist in the Commentator of the Year/City Mike Award category for columns penned between June 1, 2020, and May 31, 2021. Foulds is competing against Globe and Mail columnist Gary Mason and Victoria TimesColonist columnist Les Leyne. Kamloops This Week has had numerous previous Webster Award finalists and four previous Webster Award winners. Marty Hastings won in the

Community Reporting category in 2020 for his story about the tragic death of 25-year-old Kamloops resident Brady Dalke. Jessica Klymchuk won in the Community Reporting category in 2016 for her feature series, Transcendent: When Darrin became Deanna. Tim Petruk won in the same category in 2009 for his feature, Targeting teens within seconds. Dale Steeves won the 1998 Jack Webster Award of Distinction for his stalking series. The Webster Awards will be handed out during an online ceremony on Nov. 3.

Continued from last month

Patient home hygiene. While you may decide to brush your teeth after every meal, full removal of plaque, done properly, needs to be done once a day. Stress, health and genetics. The gums show bleeding because they are inflamed by the plaque and calculus. Health conditions also affect the immune system and cause patients to experience bleeding gums before and after a dental cleaning. Family genetics can also make you more susceptible to gum disease. Chronic stress hugely weakens the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight off periodontal bacteria resulting in bleeding. After a dental cleaning, patients occasionally experience soreness and slight bleeding of the gums when brushing for 1-3 days, but after that, bleeding should stop. If not, then fractured calculus may be present under the gums. You need to see a periodontist (a gum and implant specialist) for more advanced periodontal treatment. Periodontal treatment must be staged ~ this cannot be overemphasized. The analogy is a skin wound, treatment begins with cleaning the wound as well as possible. This is the “initial cleaning or scaling and root planing visit.” When that doesn’t work, bleeding and/or worsening of the periodontal pockets results. It is important to persist and not give up. It just means another diagnosis must be done and treatment with more sophisticated instrumentation and lasers may be necessary to achieve the desired result to change the local “epigenetics” and remove tissue memory. All periodontists see patients throughout their careers who have been told that nothing can be done and that teeth need to be removed due to “uncontrollable periodontal disease.” In most cases, this has proven to be false. My colleagues and I have examined these patients and treated them with outstanding success. If you find that treatment is continually repeated, gums are continuing to bleed, bad breath persists and teeth are starting to loosen, then you need to find a good periodontist—one who can help you achieve control of the periodontal disease and save your teeth. Mother Nature created our mouths very perfectly.... we just need to learn how to maintain things skillfully!

Mayor’s Chain of Office stolen from city hall BURGLARY SUSPECT WAS ARRESTED AND OTHER PILFERED ITEMS HAVE BEEN RECOVERED KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

A number of electronic items were returned to Kamloops City Hall and a man was arrested, thanks to the help of an eagleeyed city employee. However, police are still searching for a unique city item that was pilfered during a recent burglary. On Sunday (Sept. 12) at about 6:30 p.m., Kamloops RCMP responded to a break and enter report at city hall, downtown at First Avenue and Victoria Street West. According to the report, a city employee saw a man leaving the building with a duffle and two laptop bags. The employee helped police find the man in a nearby alley.

“In this case, the employee’s efforts and actions allowed for police to quickly locate and apprehend a suspect known to police, as well as retrieve a significant amount of city property,” Kamloops RCMP Supt. Sydney Lecky said in a release. A 37-year-old Kamloops man was arrested and remains in custody. While a number of electronics were recovered as part of Sunday’s investigation, police are still looking for other items stolen in a separate incident at city hall. On Sept. 10, police were notified of a break and enter, during which the Mayor’s Chain of Office was stolen.

“The Mayor’s Chain of Office is unique and a significant piece of Kamloops history,” Lecky said. “We are asking residents to please be on the lookout for the chain. We would appreciate any help the public can provide in assisting with its safe return.” Both investigations are ongoing and police say it is not yet known if they are related. Anyone with information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250828-3000 and reference file 2021-32041 or file 202131719. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian sports the Mayor’s Chain of Office, which was stolen from city hall during a Sept. 10, burglary. CITY OF KAMLOOPS PHOTO

Dig It: Parsing the past through smoke and snow

W

hile I was at university, an occasional venerable archaeologist would come through on a speaking tour — the theme was usually some variation of “My super cool and interesting career as an archaeologist.” The speakers hailed from near and far, with topics ranging from early human origins in Africa, Greek and Roman archaeology, the peopling of North America and archaeology along the Skeena and Nass rivers in northwestern B.C. There was always a slide show to accompany the talk. As diverse as the subjects were, they all had the following things in common: No Ski-Doos. No snow shovels. No snow. Well, maybe the occasional skiff of snow on a faraway picturesque mountain peak, but absolutely no snow anywhere nearby. It was the mid-1990s when I had the first inklings that consulting archaeology might vary a bit from my naïve undergrad expectations. It was late October and I was part way through excavating a 7,000-to-8,000-year-old site north of Fort St. John when it started to snow. Fortunately for us, it snowed a lot, so the ground was insulated from freezing. In this case, though the conditions appeared to be

terrible, we were able to continue our work more or less as normal. We did have to improvise with tarps, propane “tiger” torches and lots and lots of cardboard to insulate the exposed partly excavated units overnight. Over the years, I have had a few more run-ins with snow when pushing work into the fall. Usually, we were able to adapt our regular methods to get the job done without too much drama. Fast forward 30 years to the middle of this summer, when I have been working on the logistics for a large winter excavation program, all the while wearing a mask to protect me from thick wildfire smoke. As I was leaving an on-site meeting with the client and

other archaeologists, I noted a new plume of smoke over the hill. While driving back to where my crew was excavating a site, I watched the ominous cloud expand to cover half the sky. The irony of planning winter work in such conditions was not lost on me when, an hour later, we had to evacuate. It is one thing to extend archaeology work into the late fall snow and entirely another to contemplate working through the winter. Now we are dealing with deeply frozen ground, consistent sub-zero temperatures and limited light. It is not hard to come up with the obvious things we need to do: tasks like thawing the ground, keeping it thawed

and creating conditions in which archaeologists can safely perform quality work are self-evident. Other things are only learned from experience. For instance, I learned the hard way a few years ago that it is not simply enough to keep the excavation area warm and dry; the screening location must also be warm and dry. Who knew that sifting warm, moist dirt through metal screens outside in freezing weather would result in a useless frozen mess? When we excavate in summer conditions, we have the flexibility to improvise and modify our approach as we go along without significant impacts to schedules and budgets.

In contrast, the key to a successful winter archaeological excavation program is early and detailed planning. Determining beforehand where the work will take place so we can insulate the ground before it ever freezes is more efficient than having to thaw and dry it later. We need to know how large the excavation blocks will be so we can plan for tents big enough to cover those blocks and provide sufficient working room. The dirt needs to be screened in a separate warm and dry location, so we must have an effective way of tracking from where each bucket of dirt comes. Do we need to backfill the excavation units when we are done or can that wait until spring? If it cannot wait, we must keep that dirt thawed, as well. How many of what kind of lights will we need and how will they be mounted? Seemingly mundane and simple variables must be carefully considered beforehand to avoid delays and minor disasters. Most critically, do we have an espresso machine or drip coffee? Clinton Coates is a Kamloopsbased archaeologist.

Minten among Blazers’ camp standouts MARTY HASTINGS

aletown features hip restaurants and cocktail lounges, many with buzzing outdoor terraces, as well as indie fashion and decor boutiques, according to Wikipedia. The online encyclopedia fails to mention the chic Vancouver neighbourhood is also home to an in-vogue hockey player — 17-year-old Fraser Minten of the Kamloops Blazers. “I feel like last year was a great year to get my feet wet,” said Minten, the left-shot forward who sprouted to 6-foot-1 during the off-season and weighs about 180 pounds. “I feel like I even could have done more last year. I had a really good off-season, as well, so I feel really confident coming into camp and super excited to, hopefully, have a big year as an individual and as a team.” Minten pounced on opportunities offered during the shortened 2021 WHL pandemic season, two in particular that gave him the platform to cement his status as one to watch in 2021-2022, his NHL Draft season. Blazers’ star forward Logan Stankoven left the team after six games to play for Canada at the Under-18 World Hockey Championship in Texas. Kamloops bench boss Shaun Clouston bumped Minten to third-line centre from

ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW FILE Kamloops Blazers’ forward Fraser Minten: “I had a really good off-season, as well, so I feel really confident coming into camp and super excited to, hopefully, have a big year as an individual and as a team.”

fourth-line centre. “He handled that really well,” said Clouston, who was promoted to head coach and general manager in the offseason. Minten’s next promotion, to second-line centre, came when Calgary Flames’ draft pick Connor Zary was injured. “We never changed after that,” Clouston said. Minten finished the campaign with four goals and 18 points in 20 games to lead the

B.C. Division in scoring among 16-year-old players. “I ended up getting more ice time,” said Minten, who is expected to feature on the power play this season. “With that came more confidence and I felt like my game just kept growing. I was able to make the plays I know I can make.” Minten, who worked with a nutritionist in the off-season and did his best to avoid cheat meals, showed up hungry to training camp last week.

“Proud to be voted #1. Thank you to our clients and readers!”

He peacocked during a three-on-three tournament on Saturday, tallying 10 points on his team’s 13 goals and registering five points in a 6-5 victory in the final. “Probably the thing that stands out the most is he appears just that much more confident,” Clouston said. “He’s got a year under his belt and he looks like he wants to be the guy this year. Extremely smart, great vision, very committed, really wants to be a player, puts

a lot of work into his game and keeps finding ways to get better. He’s had a terrific camp so far.” Minten will be given the chance to play a prominent role during exhibition action, with four of Kamloops’ forwards — Stankoven (Dallas), Daylan Kuefler (Arizona), Caedan Bankier (Minnesota) and Josh Pillar (Minnesota) — participating this month in NHL camps. Fans will be able to get a look at the Yaletown product on Friday, when Kamloops plays host to Prince George in exhibition action at Sandman Centre, a 7 p.m. start. Interior Health restrictions were eased on Monday to allow for 50 per cent capacity inside the arena. All spectators will be required to wear masks and provide proof of full COVID19 vaccination prior to entry for WHL games in Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, Vancouver and Victoria. Regular season action is slated to begin on Oct. 2, when the Blazers square off against the Cougars in Prince George. “We obviously lost a couple key pieces with a captain, a 20-year-old forward and a couple great D-men, but I think we’ve got a lot of great returning guys, a super good young corps, lots of skill and everybody is super happy to be here,” Minten said. “I think we’ve got a really good shot at going pretty far this season.” For more on Blazers’ training camp, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com.

Westsyde football team folds MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Westsyde Blue Wave will not field a senior varsity football team in 2021. Cleve Maartman, who coaches the senior and junior teams at Westsyde, delivered the news to the senior group on Monday. “We had to pull the pin on our varsity team,” Maartman said. “I looked around at the end of practise and we had 12 guys, five who have never played football. I just said, ‘Guys, I can’t do this.” The 2020 B.C. Secondary Schools Football Association campaign was pre-empted by ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW the pandemic. Maartman noted some students seem to have COMING UP ROSES become accustomed to inactivity. Mikkel Rosenlund’s (left) 90th-minute header highlighted the day on the pitch for the TRU WolfPack, whose men’s and women’s soccer teams played “COVID hit us. That knocked host to the UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday at Hillside Stadium. The 6-foot-3 out about five players who you rookie defender from Denmark nodded home a cross from Marco Favaro would normally get out of the to secure a 1-1 tie with the T-Birds, the three-time defending Canada West basement,” Maartman said. champions. TRU and UBC, which played to a 1-1 draw on Friday at Hillside “They’re hunkered down, not Stadium, are both 0-0-2 after their first weekend of Canada West play in motivated to do much any more. nearly two years. UBC swept TRU in women’s action on the weekend, I’m not sure if that makes any winning 3-0 on Saturday and 2-0 on Friday. Both TRU teams will travel to Kelowna this weekend to square off against the UBC OKanagan Heat. sense, but I feel like there is a

group of kids that just want to hang out. They did a lot of hanging out during the non-productive year.” Maartman said the plan is to focus on the junior-varsity players who will eventually populate the senior team. “I had to do it now,” Maartman said. “If I do it two weeks from now, everybody is handcuffed. It was a tough decision.” Meanwhile, the South Kamloops Titans’ senior football team returned to action on the weekend for the first time since 2019. Hometown South Delta, a

AAA school, bested AA South Kamloops 35-13. “We’ve got a lot of work to do,” Titans’ head coach Brad Yamaoka said. South Kamloops quarterback Jesse Peters threw touchdown passes to Deegan Falsetta and Grayson Peters in a losing effort. The Titans will play hometown AAA New Westminster on Friday in exhibition play. Regular season action is slated to begin on Friday, Sept. 24, when South Kamloops and Rutland square off at Hillside Stadium, a 7:30 p.m. start. The Titans will toil this season in a hybrid AA/AAA division, along with AAA Rutland, AAA Mt. Boucherie of Kelowna, AAA Okanagan Mission of Kelowna, AAA Salmon Arm and AA Vernon. JP Lancaster coached the South Kam senior squad in 2019. He passed the reins this season to Yamaoka, the former CFLer whose son and nephew are on the senior varsity squad. Lancaster and his staff will lead the junior varsity Titans.

In Loving Memory of Alfred Howard Kiesman September 20, 1943 - September 10, 2020 God looked around His garden, and found an empty place. He looked around upon this earth, and saw your tired face. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well upon this earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered “Peace be thine” God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He put His arms around you, and lifted you to rest. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone, for a part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

Doreen Lynn Harper Doreen Lynn Harper, born Janet Doreen Miller 1st born to Edwin Earl Miller and Thomery Gill on November 2, 1939 in Pincher Creek, Alberta and passed away on August 9, 2021. Doreen is survived by her younger brother Norman Miller, December 25, 1940; sister Eleanor (Charles) Gill, March 22, 1943; daughters Karen Lee Gero (née Harper), December 6, 1964; Brenda (Jack) Lee Bleiler (née Harper), December 16, 1965; grandchildren Toby (Brad) Carriere, Miranda Wachter, Zachary Gero, Liam Gero, Talia (Chad) Bleiler, great- grandchildren Edward Carriere, TJ Jackson, Jonathon Whyte as well as nieces and nephews. Doreen is predeceased by her parents, and her son-in-law, Daryl Gero. Doreen grew up on a farm near Waterton River, AB where she completed Grade 10. She went on to graduating nurse training in May 1959 and took her first position at Blood Indian Hospital in Cardston. Doreen was then baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in May, 1959. September, 1962 found Doreen working at Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, BC where she also engaged in her musical interests with playing organ and accordion. She later enjoyed spending time with her granddaughters learning to play violin. She also enjoyed gardening. Doreen met her future husband in the summer of 1963. After a short romance that blossomed in November, they were married in January of 1964, After having children, Doreen reentered the work force into housekeeping at RIH in 1974. Her marriage had deteriorated and she divorced in May, 1975. Doreen became self reliant, buying her first 1/2 duplex on Waddington Dr., learned to drive, sold Shaklee and took in mostly college students as borders for about 9 years. When she bought her first motorcycle, she quickly became lovingly known as a self proclaimed “Rebel”. She would often show up at church on her motorbike and in denim. She took her motorbike across Western Canada and drove her car through the United States. The highlight of her travels was to the Lilly Reunion. Doreen retired in 1996. In order to be closer to her daughter, Karen, she bought the duplex on Moncton Avenue in 2003 but did not move in until 2005 upon the sale of her Waddington property. Doreen’s health began to fail her and she struggled to maintain her quality of life. She moved in with her daughter for about a year and transitioned to Overlander Extended Care for the last 2 years of her life. The family would like to thank the staff at Overlander Extended Care. A Memorial Service for all who wish to attend will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 2165 Parkcrest Avenue, Kamloops, BC, on Saturday, September 25, 2021 at 1:00 pm with refreshments to follow.

Edward Nazaruk 1930 - 2021

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our mentor, our hero, our rock; Bill Gurney on September 9, 2021. Bill passed away at home surrounded by his loving family after an extremely courageous and lengthy battle with cancer.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edward “Ed” Nazaruk of Kamloops, BC, on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at 91 years of age.

Bill is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sharon, his children: Lisa, Janis (Jay), Steven (Michelle), daughter-in-law Denise, his devoted workforce and project helpers consisting of his grandsons: Willis, Jacob, Nathan, Matthew, Adam, and nephews: Cody, Dustin, Ty, as well as numerous other family members and friends who were all important and special to him.

Ed is survived by his children Bradley Nazaruk of Kamloops, Duane Nazaruk of Kamloops, Dale Nazaruk of Kamloops, and Cindra Braun (Stephen White) of Kamloops. Ed is also survived by his grandchildren Terence Fagan, Carissa Roy, Cody Braun, and Sierrah and Nathan Nazaruk, as well as great-grandchild Kaden Roberts. Ed was predeceased by his wife Lila Jeanette (Jan) Nazaruk on October 8, 2015 after 52 years of marriage.

Bill was the oldest of five boys born to W.H. and Olive Gurney. He will be deeply missed by his three surviving devoted brothers Don, Jim and Bruce. Bill was born and raised in Kamloops, BC and graduated from the University of British Columbia. He began a teaching career in Kamloops in 1966 and was a positive influence in the lives of many during his 30 year career at NorKam Senior Secondary School. He was also involved for many years with Kamloops Minor Hockey and Youth Soccer at coaching, executive committee and “super fan” levels. He derived much enjoyment as a loyal Kamloops Blazer’s fan. Bill was an avid historian and genealogist and loved to share his wealth of memories of earlier generations. He had many talents and interests, and accomplished much in his life, but he will be remembered most for his kind and cheerful heart, his compassionate nature, as well as his genuine interest in others. Our hearts are broken, but we will “muddle on” without him enjoying our lifetime of wonderful memories. We will be forever grateful for his lasting legacy of our family cabin that he built from hand at his beloved North Barriere Lake. “I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me, those who are to come. I looked back and saw my father, and his father, and all our fathers, and in front, to see my son, and his son, and the sons upon sons beyond. And their eyes were my eyes. As I felt, so they had felt, and were to feel, as then, as now, as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I was in a long line that had no beginning, and no end.” Richard Llewellyn Following Bill’s wishes there will be no formal service. Donations in Bill’s memory may be made to the Canadian Red Cross, whose Health Equipment Loan Program provided practical support and comfort to Bill and his family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But now he’s in a loving place His mother held him lovingly Where all his pain has ceased, And tried to ease his fears About the sadness life could bring... Where all accepted him and his love, Where all he knows is peace. The lonely, bitter tears.

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

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

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

Ed was born in Fox Valley, Saskatchewan, on June 20, 1930. Throughout his life he worked various jobs, including the Air Force, D.E.W. Line, a Microwave Tech and CNCP Telecommunications (Unitel) until his retirement on April 30, 1991. A friends and family celebration of Ed’s life will take place at a later date.

Demonte (Monte) Alexandre Bachand December 4, 1932 - September 4, 2021

On September 4, 2021, after a short illness, Monte Bachand passed away peacefully in his home in Kamloops at the age of 88, with his family and friends nearby. Monte was a remarkable man who lived a full and incredible life, and his passing leaves a vacuum in the lives of those close to him. He was a “once-in-a-lifetime” man, and his strength, heart, and humour left an indelible impression on the people around him. Monte had a colourful sense of humour, and he never missed the chance to make someone laugh. He was telling jokes and laughing until the last. He also loved a good yarn and was full of legendary stories about jailbreaks, cowboys, and bar brawls, each re-telling more sensational than the last. (It’s rumoured that he once used a live rattlesnake as a weapon.) Listening to his stories, you would hear about a man who was larger than life, funnier than hell, and determined to make the most of everything life had to offer. Monte accomplished more in his life than anyone could have imagined. He was born in Taber, Alberta in 1932 and grew up on a farm outside Vauxhall with his four brothers. He left home as a teenager to work in the oil fields. In 1953, at age 21, he suffered a serious back injury when he fell from an escape line on an oil rig. He was told he would never walk again. Yet, with the use of crutches, he did more than walk. He was unstoppable. He moved to Kamloops in 1967, where his unshakeable work ethic led him to become a business owner. He was a pioneer in the field of directional drilling, and he could run any piece of equipment there was. He was a small aircraft pilot and an avid hunter and fisher. He would load his own snowmobile and jump off diving boards. He travelled and worked all over the world. The most important thing that Monte did was raise a family with his wife, Sara. He was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather who always made time for family holidays and vacations. Every Sunday, his home would be filled with family for weekly dinner. (Barbeque ribs were his specialty, but I’ve been warned against giving away the secret recipe.) While Monte was humble about his own accomplishments (except his rib recipe), he had boundless pride in the achievements of his sons and his grandchildren. His guidance is responsible for many of those successes, as he taught those around him about grit, good humour, common sense, and the importance of excellent table manners. Monte is survived by two brothers (Carl and Richard), his three sons and their wives (Randy and Ika Winarti, Malcolm and Sheri, and Richard and Lee Anne), seven grandchildren (Taylor, Alexandra, Abbey, Zach, Melissa, Daniel, and Straten) and three great-grandchildren (Adrianna, Taia, and Solia) all of whom will miss him more than words can begin to describe. The family would like to thank the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, the Nurse Next Door team, including and especially Tanja, and Dr. Jason O’Connell for all of their outstanding support through a challenging time. Together, you all allowed Monte to spend his final days in the haven of his own home, surrounded by his loved ones, which is where he was always at his happiest.

Bonita (Bonnie) Stevens Bonita (Bonnie) Stevens of Kamloops passed away on August 25, 2021 at 74 years of age. She is survived by her children Marla (Jan) Moore, Ryan (Nikki) Breuer, and Amanda (Charles) Breuer; grandchildren Josh (Kristi) Lacourciere, and Jory Wick; and great-grandson Jaeben. Bonnie is also survived by her brother Randy; sisters-in-law Darlene and Shelly; and nieces and nephews Jenny, Aaron, Lindsay, Tyler, and Connor. She was predeceased by father Arthur (Art), mother Mary, and brother Danny. Born in Port Alberni, Bonnie was a coastal girl at heart. In her late teens she toured the remote islands and inlets of BC with the Shanteymen, aboard the Messenger III. She always treasured these memories of getting to know the beautiful people, cultures, and wild places she encountered on these voyages. As an adult, Bonnie took the rest of BC by storm, leaving lasting impressions on anyone who tasted her cooking, heard her jokes, shared a beer with her, or witnessed her fiery, redheaded passion. She lived in many nooks and crannies of the province, raising her three kids in all manner of hellish weather, sometimes without modern conveniences. Never one to give up or give in, she faced these challenges head on, and then - as if life weren’t tough enough! - she helped two husbands open and run restaurants (The Echo Inn in Cranbrook, BC and Rustlers Inn in Falkland, BC). In more recent years Bonnie said, “to hell with men!” and built a life for herself in Kamloops centered on family, friends, and community. Her best times were the years she spent working as a cook at Skitchine Lodge, where she could enjoy a cold one on the deck after work, listening to the loons and watching the sun go down. She was also a dedicated volunteer at the Kamloops Farmers’ Market; a gifted writer, artist and sculptor; and a devoted friend who always had a homemade meal, baked treats, or a pot of delicious soup on the go for anyone who was hungry. She was passionate about both her Scottish and Mennonite heritage, and loved to share traditional recipes and stories of her ancestors. While fiercely independent, Bonnie had a knack for making the best friends a person could ask for. As she was fond of quoting, “I no doubt deserve my enemies, but I sure as hell don’t deserve my friends.” She will be missed beyond words. She was the life of the party, a force of nature, and the best mom, great-grandmother, and friend. Farewell, our “bonnie lass.” A celebration of life will be planned at a time when COVID safety allows. Donations can be made in Bonnie’s name to the Kamloops Hospice Association, the BC Cancer Agency, or the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

Sherif Tadros

February 6, 1964 - August 26, 2021 Suddenly, but peacefully, Sherif was the beloved son of Odette and the late Saad Tadros. Born in Egypt, came to Canada in 1968 and lived in Lindsay, Ontario for 3 years, and then Toronto, until moving to Kamloops, BC in 2017. Sherif was a true Aquarius, very creative and ahead of his time, as well as being a water bearer and a (bottled) water lover. A fun and sun lover, he was very much into fitness and aerobics, even leading some classes. An eclectic music lover from Frank Sinatra to the Carpenters to Van Halen to Lil’ Kim. Talented in clothes and interior design, he instantly knew what went well together and what suited the person or home (could’ve been a personal shopper for women or men). Sherif always knew the exact appropriate gift for each individual person and occasion. Lived life on his terms but would often compromise. He had very good morals, being sympathetic and compassionate to others. However, he would always “say it to your face, and not behind your back”, a very honest quality he lived by. Maybe his most memorable gift, (and he certainly was memorable), was his uncanny ability to read people, and often very quickly. Going through all of life’s adventures along with his best friend and soulmate Doug of 34 years, he enjoyed lots of laughter, many foods (home cooked, take-out and quality restaurants, including some quite upscale), and watching movies. Sherif and Doug were seen to be quite opposite but as Sherif often said, there was so much in common. To all of those people who were befriended by him, consider yourself lucky to have met him and known him, he was a true original. His initials should’ve been LV. Always very aware of everyone and everything around him, to quote Sherif, “my spidey sense is tingling”. We will definitely see you on the other side. Donations in Sherif’s memory may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, Canadian Cancer Society or Diabetes Canada. Condolences may be made to www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Wild Sheep Society of BC, mailing address #101-30799 Simpson Road, Abbotsford, BC, V2T 6X4, or contact Kelly at 778-908-3634.

January 21, 1950 - September 4, 2021

It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the passing of Carol Anne Cordonier, cherished Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and friend on September 4, 2021 at the age of 71. Carol was born in Vancouver on January 21, 1950 to Art and Norma James. Early in her life her family moved several times between BC and Alberta and eventually settled in Kamloops in 1968. Carol worked alongside her parents and brothers in the family business - James International Truck & Tractor Ltd. and later, James Western Star Ltd. Carol married Andy Cordonier on July 29, 1972. Andy and Carol raised their four daughters in the Barnhartvale neighbourhood of Kamloops. Nothing was ever more important to Carol than her family. She was always there for her daughters and grandchildren, whether they needed a ride to dance lessons or just a friendly phone call to catch up. Carol loved gardening and her yard always boasted beautiful flower gardens which included her many rose bushes and a clematis that never bloomed enough. She also loved to travel and in her later years she would always be planning a trip to somewhere warm in the winter or to spend time visiting her precious grandchildren. Carol is survived by her husband Andy Cordonier of Kamloops, daughters Karen Nowicki, Kathleen (Dave) Underwood, Laurie (Darryl) Bochard and Dianne (Justin) Kopp. Carol was the proud grandmother to Avery and Alyssa Nowicki, Conner and Carson Underwood, Sophie and Bridget Bochard, Lucas, Ethan and Spencer Kopp. She also leaves behind her brothers Don (Eileen) James, Bryan (Kim) James, Rob (Bonnee) James and a long list of nieces and nephews. Carol was predeceased by her parents Art and Norma (née Gulliver) James. Nothing will ever replace the love and support Carol gave to everyone close to her. For all of us fortunate enough to have been loved by her, we truly know what it is to be loved unconditionally. At this time, we regret that we will not be able to hold an open public service. Carol’s final days were spent peacefully at Kamloops Hospice. We ask that in lieu of flowers, a donation to the Kamloops Hospice Association be made in her memory. https://www.kamloopshospice.com/contribute/donate/ Condolences may be expressed at www.SchoeningFuneralService.com

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Carolin May Booth announce her peaceful passing at Royal Inland Hospital on September 4, 2021, at the age of 78 years. Carolin was born in Barrhead, AB on September 25, 1942. She lived with her family in Sangudo, Peavine and Calgary, AB before the Jensen family relocated to Kamloops, BC when she was four years old. They settled on a farm in Westsyde, at the location where Jensen Road is today. She attended Westsyde School, graduated from NorKam Secondary and attended Business School at St. Ann’s Academy. In 1959, Carolin met Walter Booth. They married in 1960 and a few years later relocated to Smithers, BC for eight years. In 1970, Carolin and Wally had the opportunity to move back to Kamloops where they settled again in Westsyde to raise their three daughters and son. She was thrilled to be back in the same community that she grew up in, and to be close to family and her many special friends. Carolin enjoyed camping and fishing. Many, many weekends were spent with family and friends at the numerous fishing lakes around the Kamloops area. She also enjoyed cheering on her kids in their school activities and many sporting endeavours - she was a very proud cheerleader. As a Grandma, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, doing projects with them and sewing many Halloween costumes. When one of her grandchildren asked, “Gram can you make this for me?” she always found a way to get the job done. Carolin was predeceased by her husband Walter, her mother Lillian, her father Carl and her sister Freda Bebek. Carolin is survived by and will be lovingly missed by her children: Tress Dever of Edmonton, Tania Booth (Clayton) of Calgary, and Carmen Yanchuk (Gord) and Chris Booth (Corrina) of Kamloops. She was very proud of her eleven grandchildren: Brittany, Kirsten and Grace, Lindsay, Michael and Shane, Travis and Stephanie, and Tyler, Connor and Meghan. She was also blessed with seven great-grandchildren and was excited about the upcoming arrival of her eighth. Carolin had many special relationships with her numerous nieces and nephews. Carolin and Wally’s home was always a place where their children’s friends could gather and feel welcome. Carolin’s family would like to thank the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff of Unit 4 North at Royal Inland Hospital for their wonderful care over the past weeks. At Carolin’s request, there will be no formal service. Condolences may be left at Drake Cremation and Funeral Services. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Little Farmer’s Petting Zoo at Westsyde Park, where Carolin enjoyed many special times with her grandchildren and great- grandchildren.

1939 - 2021

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Joyce Gill on September 3, 2021 at the age of 82. Mom was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on January 7, 1939 and raised in Surrey, BC until moving to Kamloops in 1960 where her and dad operated Shores Credit Jewelers for many years. Mom was so strong and a force of nature, and had the ability to put on a brave face and look for the positives in any situation. She loved her family unconditionally and would have done anything for them.

Gerry married Carol or “Cookie”, as he so lovingly called her, on April 11, 1959. He is survived by his wife Carol Skuta; his children Gerald Skuta (of Australia), Susan Skuta, and Wendy Ashe (née Skuta); and his five grandchildren Jerald Skuta (of Australia), Taylor Skuta, Christian Ashe, Jacqueline Skuta (of Australia), and Jessica Ashe.

Joyce is predeceased by her loving husband Gordon and her son Brian.

She also leaves to cherish her memory, her brother-in-law and sister-in-law Vance and Jenny Gill, and brother-in-law Marsh Gardecki and numerous nieces and nephews. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

Gerry was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting, fishing, boating, and camping. He worked hard all his life and spent the majority of his career as a millwright. His favourite place to be was with his family at the Shuswap Lake. He also enjoyed spending time with his buddies, sharing laughs (and beers!) after a hard day at work. Even though Gerry is no longer with us, his love for his family, humour, work ethic, and kindness will forever live on in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to know him.

Gerry will be greatly missed. Due to Covid-19, the celebration of life will be held at a later date. Be a part of your community paper & comment online.

Charles (Chuck) Douglass It is with great sadness and fond memories that we share the passing of Charles (Chuck) Douglass on September 8, 2021 at the Hillside facility in Kamloops, BC. Chuck was born on January 9, 1948 in Saint John, NB to Charlie and Alice Douglass. Chuck grew up in the Stanley, Fredericton areas of NB & in Labrador City, Nfld. After high school Chuck moved west via Churchill Falls to work in Edmonton, AB. In the late 60s he started a 30 year career with CN Rail, in Fox Creek, AB. From there he moved to Vancouver and ultimately to Kamloops. It was here that he met Penny and they married and settled for 45 years. Chuck retired early from CN, at age 50, having moved up to transportation engineering. Chuck was very loyal to CN & enjoyed the many friends he made there, and maintained many of the friendships until his passing. After retiring he moved to working for Brentwood Enterprises - Hytracker for 12 years as their marketing manager. Chuck loved the challenge of sales and really put his knowledge and expertise from 30 years at CN to valuable use. He thoroughly enjoyed making “cold calls” and making new friends! He again, retired, at age 63. When Chuck moved out West his dream to find light mountain powder snow for downhill skiing a sport he had learned in Labrador City and apparently put more time into it than school!? Tod Mountain in Kamloops partially fulfilled this dream. Chuck and Penny bought a cabin at Tod Mtn. in 1978 with good friends the Blair’s, a cabin they kept until 2017. Alpine skiing was a passion of Chucks that fed through many heli skiing and CAT skiing trips as well as countless days at Tod - he had a seasons pass until 2016. Chuck and Penny had two sons: Andrew and Simon. Much of Chuck’s energy and interest centered around activities initially involving the boys. Skiing was a big family activity and many night were spent at “the mountain”. Many lasting friendships were made at Tod, often through, sharing a glass or two of Chucks wine.

Kenneth Wayne Rollier 1942 - 2021

Ken passed away at the Marjorie Willoughby Hospice Kamloops on July 24, 2021, after a short battle with cancer. He was born at the VGH on September 26, 1942, and spent a lot of his earlier life in the Vancouver area. He is survived by his wife Jennifer of 52 years, and two sons Brad (Amanda) of Edmonton, AB, and Chris (Leah) of Kamloops, BC, his two grandchildren Holden and Mazy, a brother-in-law and a sister-in-law, two nieces and a nephew from Victoria, as well as cousins from the Lower Mainland. Ken was predeceased by his grandparents who raised him, his beloved Aunty Frieda, and, unfortunately, many of his close friends. He retired from Weyerhaeuser after 31 years of service; his trade being a gasfitter and pipefitter. He also worked at the Gold River BC Pulp Mill for 4 years prior to that. He served five years in the Canadian Air Force at an early age. Additionally, Ken worked at several construction sites and other employment opportunities. He lived a very interesting life which nurtured his great sense of humour and quick wit. He was known for “telling like it is” and doing this “his way”. Ken attended school at the Lower Mainland, but also in Scotland; Ken and his grandparents moved there for five years. When returning to Canada he completed his education at John Oliver High School in Vancouver. Ken had a great love for horses and other animals. His dream of having his own small acreage came true in the early 80s when the family moved to McLure where they enjoyed life for 15 years. Now he had his horses; he had a lot to do with them from a very early age. A true cowboy at heart. They moved back to Kamloops in 1991.

Both boys were active in ski racing. Chuck was very involved with the Kamloops Alpine Ski Club and later the Sun Peaks Racers, as a BC Alpine official and race organizer. Chuck loved the challenge and camaraderie of these events. He was also a longtime volunteer with Scouts Canada - he maintained volunteer positions long after the kids had moved on. He loved involvement with many committees including Strata K18, the Kamloops Amateur Winemakers, Kamloops United Church and BC Alpine.

He enjoyed sports and other activities, and excelled at all he was involved in. A few being golf, softball, soccer, darts, fishing in Gold River ocean and stream. He was known to go to the KXA, and then Chances to be with friends, and watch the horse racing.

Chuck and Penny and the boys enjoyed many active, outdoors adventures including hiking, biking, backpacking, skiing & cycling along with adventures in the truck and camper. These were often with other families, the Genge’s and Cowden’s in particular.

Ken has gone on his journey now to be with all that he loved. Donations would be gratefully accepted by the SPCA and for the Kamloops Hospice Association.

Chuck generally loved and enjoyed people and also loved family. He took his position of “big brother”, to his three sisters, seriously. He kept close contact with them until he was hospitalized. He cherished his Maritime roots and kept close contact with several relatives there and visited frequently. Parkinson’s Disease waved it’s cruel wand over Chuck 24 years ago but he was not going to be defined by it! He maintained a high level of activity as long as he could with activities including fishing, golfing, winemaking, cycling, gardening, pool, crib and bridge. With supportive friends Bob and Joan Cowden, he and Penny cycled Hwy. 101 from Lund, BC to the Mexican border in 4 two week trips. Many Chuck stories & memories from those trips, P.D. did not prevent him from travelling several times to Australia to visit close friends. Chuck truly enjoyed his many friendships and appreciated how friends and family supported him as his Parkinson’s advanced. He was admitted to hospital in late May with an infection. His health and mobility steadily declined. Sadly, due to Covid he could not have visitors. He did enjoy the cards, pictures and videos many friends emailed. The iPad was a wonderful mode for him connecting. Penny and Andrew greatly appreciated all the support for Chuck. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Penny, son Andrew and his wonderful sisters: Chuck was pre-deceased by his father Charlie, his mother Alice and son Simon (2013). Penny and Andrew would like to thank the many medical professionals that guided, treated and respectfully cared for Chuck over many years and most recently, including Dr. Jennifer Takahashi, Dr. A. Thibeault, Dr. Olubajo, Dr. Barb Prystawa and Christine, the staff on 5-South, and most recently Dr. Carol Ward and the caring staff at Hillside Adult Psychiatric Center. They all helped to guide Chuck’s journey to its peaceful end. There will be a celebration of Chuck’s life at a later date when Covid restrictions allow. In the meantime raise a glass of red in Chuck’s memory. Donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Society of BC. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

If you had Ken for a friend, you had a true loyal one with ethics, and always there to lend a helping hand, and always said to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.

Many thanks to RIH and the palliative care team, and Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services.

For the past year, the KSO has produced mainly digital content. “The musicians of the orchestra and I are eager to share with our audience these moving and captivating works where high artistry will bring electricity to the stage,” KSO music director Dina Gilbert said. Up first will be the aptly named Out of the Silence, which will be performed on Sept. 25 and Sept. 26. Showtimes are 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 25 and 1 p.m. on Sept. 26. The 7:30 p.m. performance on Sept. 25 will also be live-streamed, with the recording available on demand until Oct. 24. Out of the Silence will feature Salmon

Arm pianist Jaeden Izik-Dzurko and KSO principal trumpet player Mark D’Angelo, who will perform Concerto for Piano and Trumpet by Dmitri Shostakovich. The KSO’s second concert, Windscapes, will take place on Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 24 at 2 p.m. The first performance will be live-streamed and available on demand until Nov. 21. Windscapes will feature the orchestras wind instrument players for a unique symphonic concert almost entirely without strings. Under the current health guidelines, the audience will be limited to 50 people — though that may change before the concert dates. What is less likely

to change, however, is the requirement of proof-of-vaccination. In-person audience members will need to provide ID and proof they have received at least one dose after Sept. 13 and at least two doses after Oct. 24. KSO executive director Daniel Mills said he was hoping audiences could be larger for KSO’s return to live audiences, but that “it is more important for us to be producing art for the community, in any way that we can.” Tickets for Out of the Silence are $40 for in-person viewing and $15 for online viewing and are available at the Kamloops Live box office, online at kamloopslive.ca. For Windscapes, tickets will be available later in the fall.

Climb Kilimanjaro and help others Thrive Okanagan resident Thrive for Good executive director James Woller at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in 2008. THRIVE FOR GOOD PHOTO

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Okanagan resident Thrive for Good executive director James Woller is training hard for an upcoming virtual fundraiser — all in the name of charity. Thrive on Kilimanjaro is a virtual and live event with a goal of raising $500,000 — enough to plant 5,000 life gardens. Between Sept. 17 and Sept. 23, participants can join worldwide, virtually, to help reach the top of Mount Kilimanjaro by climbing stairs, hiking, walking or running. This will coincide with an in-person climb of Kilimanjaro by 68-year-old Dale Bolton, co-founder of Thrive and Natural Calm Canada. “I climbed Kili in 2008, so I won’t be going on the trip,” Woller said. “However, in solidarity, I will be running 70 kilometres in the North BX hills of Vernon during the week of Sept. 17 to Sept. 23 while the Thrive team is on Kilimanjaro. I will have my kids join me on their bikes.” Founded in 2008 to help eradicate extreme poverty, Thrive for Good is a

Canadian non-profit that dug deep to find the roots of such poverty and carefully began sowing seeds of change. By teaching and supporting communities to grow life gardens, Thrive helps them help themselves sustainably. A life garden is an organic, bio-intensive garden intentionally cultivated to grow the most nutrient-dense foods and natural, medicinal plants.

It is typically a quarter-acre of about 40, 100-square-foot double-dug garden beds in which communities can grow healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods, including spinach, kale, onions, garlic, carrots and natural medicines. Thrive has worked in eight countries, impacting nearly 800 communities and 75,000 individuals, empowering them with the knowledge and skills they need to grow their own health. Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world. Its elevation sits at 19,340 feet (5,894 metres) and requires a five- to eight-day climb to the summit. Woller said he was drawn to Thrive as he had never before seen a sustainable

solution to ending poverty with such a simple approach and low costs. “I still can’t wrap my head around the idea that for $15, someone can eat the healthiest food in the world, sustainably,” he said. “The power of life gardens has even transformed my personal life. I left the daily operations of my business to be part of this movement as we work to scale the impact so that all communities can be empowered to grow healthy nutritious food.” With the support of sponsors, Thrive has gathered impressive prizes for Thrive on Kilimanjaro participants, including an all-expenses-paid trip to Kenya to see Thrive’s work in person. Other prizes include a one-week stay at a Penthouse at Walnut Beach Resort in Osoyoos, a one-year supply of Natural Calm, gift certificates to Vita Garden, and more. Prizes will be awarded to the individual/ team captain who raises the most money. Those interested in joining the climb or learning more can go online to thriveforgood.org.

Climbing for Alzheimer’s this month KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Committed to continuing to deliver supports for people living with dementia during pandemic, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. has launched its fall fundraiser — the Climb for Alzheimer’s. The annual event, now in its 10th year, raises awareness and funds to support programs and services that help residents in Kamloops and across B.C. The circumstances of the pandemic, coupled with recent extreme heat and fires throughout much of the province, have posed uphill challenges for many. They have also taken an extra toll on people affected by dementia, who have experienced isolation and uncertainty, as well as a loss of many services. In many cases, the isolating conditions can contribute to cognitive decline. Taking place through Sept.

21, the Climb invites Kamloops, Ashcroft, Barriere, Chase, Clearwater, Lytton, Merritt and other Thompson-Nicola residents to hike local trails. “Now, more than ever, we are pulling out all the stops to make sure British Columbians affected by dementia are able to access the support they need,” said Jen Lyle, the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s chief executive officer. “We continue to adapt our programming to a virtual set-

ting so it is accessible, no matter where you are in the province. The majority of our funding comes from the generosity of the community — committed individuals and organizations who support us through events such as the Climb for Alzheimer’s.” Supporters include Neptune Terminals, a long-term sponsor of this annual event. “Dementia touches so many people. Often you won’t even know your employees are deal-

ing with it in their families,” said Lisa Dooling of Neptune. “By sponsoring the Climb for Alzheimer’s, we help start those conversations with our employees, at the same time as we support important services for so many people in the communities where we live and work.” Participants can register as individuals or as a team and are encouraged to share their hiking and climbing challenges online. To register or make a donation to the event, go online

to climbforalzheimers.ca. For questions about dementia or memory loss, or to connect to the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s programs and services, call the First Link Dementia Helpline at 1-800-936-6033. The Helpline is available Mondays to Fridays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Information and support is also available in Punjabi (1-833674-5003) and in Cantonese or Mandarin (1-833-674-5007), Mondays to Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Free at last and sharing my story for all to read

I

am so angry right now. There are too many people dying, hiding in shame. Silence, fear and hatred does not serve anyone, especially not you. I once believed anonymity was a badge of honour, the way to go. Now I know different, that the face of recovery is changing today and, for once in my life, I no longer hide. In order to help others, I must face my fear. Anonymity in 12-step programs is only about specific organizations. There are AA, NA, Alanon, Adult Child of Alcoholics, CoDependents and more. I just need not highlight to which one(s) I belong. I do not speak for any of these; however, know that I am in recovery. Finally and completely, I am totally free. Addiction wants us to hide — in the dark shadows and in the false sense of shame. It lies. It is cunning, baffling and powerful. Fear is its name. So I hid under the guise of anonymity, thinking this was the way. Can you imagine if the LGBTQ2 community didn’t come forward, didn’t share their stories with us? Where would we be now if no one showed courage, didn’t come forth and show

In darkness it hides, separates and wants people to think they are truly alone. If you hate me, target me and want to attack me, it is about you. Too many people have come forward to celebrate a new life. I can no longer hide because of my shame. There is no shame in being of service, of trying to help others. How can trying to help others be shameful today? Twelve steps are merely a recipe for life. I belong to many organizations, but feel no need to proclaim which ones they are. I live a healthy recovery life today — one based upon the principles of love, tolerance and acceptance. If I truly want to be an

ally, truly want to stand against hate, then I need to be honest and truthful about me. This is my story and I share it today. I am free, free at last, and it is no coincidence that Martin Luther King’s energy comes to my mind. I feel him now, his words, and it is to be free, free from the shackles of shame. I do not co-opt another’s story, but I can and do know anger, hatred and shame. Today I am free and if you hate me for that, well, know that when looking at you, I see me and sometimes I like or dislike what I see — depending on me. Today when looking at you. I see me and I like what I see. I am free, finally free.

What does it mean to be a hero? Ask that question and you will receive varying answers — some will quote direct definitions; others may offer specific examples of people or characters, fictional or real. Regardless of from where the inspiration for someone’s hero originates, almost all of us can name at least one. In Kamloops, there lives a relatively unsung hero who, every single day, helps his own group of heroes have fun and stay physically fit. Michael Maveety has served the Kamloops chapter of Special Olympics BC (SOBC) for the last 12 years as a volunteer, coach and role model. Maveety, the fundraising co-ordinator for the Kamloops chapter of SOBC, was recognized for his contributions to the Special Olympics in 2016, he received the

SOBC Presidents Award. According to the SOBC website, the award is “presented to a non-coaching volunteer who is dedicated to planning, organizing and operating sport programs, fundraisers or competitions.” Maveety’s unbridled passion and love for Special Olympics is evident in conversation, with

his goal crystal clear — to bring attention and awareness to the organization and the amazing feats done year-round by athletes and volunteers. According to Maveety, who often fundraises door-to-door, one of the biggest misconceptions people have about the SOBC is that activities are limited to one

week every four years. “Special Olympics runs just like the regular Olympics or the Paralympics,” Maveety said, noting the four-year rotation consists of regional, provincial, national and world competitions. Maveety estimates KamloopsSOBC works with between 130 and 160 athletes each year in 13 sports. While only a fraction of those athletes possess both the ability and the will to compete in the Games, the activities and sports offered by the program provide lasting benefits to everyone involved. “The majority of our athletes are just there for socialization and physical fitness, [so] our programs keep them going all year round,” Maveety explained, noting many of his athletes are having a rough time

during the pandemic because of socializing restrictions. “You can’t risk taking them anywhere [for fear of them contracting the coronavirus],” Maveety said. “They haven’t seen a restaurant or store in two years.” Maveety noted SOBC is comprised 100 per cent of volunteers. “We have no staff. None of us are paid a penny,” he said. What this means for the organization is that Maveety and other volunteers are constantly competing with other charities in Kamloops — and doing so with significantly fewer resources. “It’s all fundraising that keeps us going.

Meet Cassiopeia, The Queen GARY BOYLE

SPECIAL TO KTW

As the sun sets in the west, the sky slowly turns pastel shades, from light to dark blue. This is my favourite time of evening as the brighter stars and planets begin to reveal themselves. Over the next 20 minutes, more tiny dots emerge like celestial popcorn. About an hour after sunset, the sky is full of stars as viewed from the countryside on a moonless night. Warm September nights still allow us to gaze at our lovely Milky Way. Stretching from the heaviest concentration of stars in the south, which is the galactic centre, all the way to the northeast, this is where we see the iconic “W,” symbolizing Cassiopeia the Queen. This is a circumpolar constellation, meaning it never sets

as seen from Canadian soil. Although these five stars might look the same, they range in distance from 55 to 613 light years away. In Greek mythology, King Cephus and Queen Cassiopeia ruled the land. She often boasted that she was the most beautiful of all. Legend states that the sea god Poseidon was not pleased with Cassiopeia’s statement of her vanity and forced the king and queen to sacrifice their daughter, Andromeda, to the sea monster Cetus. However, our hero Perseus, who was returning from slaying the Medusa, rescues Andromeda in the nick of time as they ride off on his winged horse, Pegasus. This story depicting six constellations is sometimes referred to as the Royal Family of Constellations. To date, 26 exoplanets are orbiting 17 stars.

One star catalogued HD 219134 and located 21 light years away has seven bodies circling it. The closest exoplanet takes a mere three days to orbit the star, while the farthest takes 2,220 days. Aside from individual stars, there is a lovely star cluster with catalogue number M52 located 500 light years away. You will need binoculars to see this open cluster superimposed in front of the farther Milky Way stars. A beautiful object located in the constellation Perseus is called the Double Cluster and consists of two side-by-side star clusters located 7,300 and 7,700 light years away. The constellation Perseus is located below the “W.” On a clear moonless night, away from light sources, the Double Cluster can be seen with the naked eye. A few hundred young hot supergiant stars reside in the two clusters.

And that smudge to Cassiopeia’s right is the Andromeda Galaxy. At two-and-a-quarter million light years away, it is the closest galaxy to us. The light you see left the Andromeda Galaxy when Homo Hibilus was walking the earth two-and-a-quarter million years ago. Until next time, clear skies.

While an old dog gets to enjoy his retirement, a new pup is now walking the beat at the Kamloops RCMP detachment. A German shepherd named Mako is reporting for duty in the Tournament Capital, having graduated from the RCMP’s Police Dog Service Training Centre in Innisfall, Alta., on Aug. 13, specializing in finding explosives. Meanwhile, Fargo, who worked with the RCMP’s emergency response team, has called it a career. “Mako is a general duty dog trained to track people, find evidence at crime scenes, hidden firearms and assist in making arrests,” said Mako’s handler, Const. Dan Cloutier. Mako’s specialty is searching for explosives. The newest member of the Kamloops RCMP canine unit was born on Oct. 10, 2019, in Innisfail, then raised in Prince George. He comes from a long line of police service dogs

as both his father and grandfather served on the force. Fargo’s final shift with the Kamloops RCMP was on Sept. 7.. At the ripe old age of eight, Fargo was treated to a steak dinner on his last day as a Mountie. “He’s been a true buddy and companion,” said Cpl Steven Prior, Fargo’s handler and longtime partner. “The amount of time we spent together in a suburban during horrible storms and late nights is unbelievable to most. “But even though many drives were long and tough, it was nice when the sun came up and it was just me and him cruising the highway.” Fargo has been with the RCMP since he was born in the training centre in Innisfail. Prior and Fargo spent the past five years working together in Kamloops. Before coming to B.C. the team served together in Newfoundland. While Fargo’s main duties consisted of responding to calls in

Kamloops, he was also a member of the RCMP’s emergency response team for southeast British Columbia. Throughout his career, Fargo caught a number of suspects in a variety of cases. He has helped find missing people, locate crucial evidence and put criminals behind bars. “He is definitely a dog that had your back,” Prior said. “Whenever I would be at an ERT call, he would always face the direction behind me to keep me safe. I tried to change this, but no way would he change.” On Sept. 17, Fargo will be adopted by new owners. Those wishing to help support Fargo in his new journey are invited to donate to Ned’s Wish, a charity dedicated to preserving and enhancing the quality of life for retired police dogs by providing financial support for their medical well-being.

FAITH

Will you be in heaven, glorifying God for his mercy?

L

uke, in his Gospel, introduces the account of the healing of a paralyzed man with the words “And it came to pass on a certain day.” It was a day all the people present to hear the teaching of Jesus would never forget. In fact, God has put this account regarding this unnamed man in his word for all of us to marvel at and never forget. The setting is that there were present, on that certain day, a number of religious leaders of the Jews. These leaders were always looking to find fault with Jesus and his teachings. They were envious of the crowds that followed Jesus and the miracles he did on sick folk and his way of speaking with authority. This portion from Luke 5:17-26 says that these leaders came from every town of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem. There were also multitudes of people from all over to hear Jesus teach and receive healing of their sicknesses — so much so that people were outside the house waiting for an opportunity to be helped. The Bible says the power of the Lord was present to heal those in need. Then into the scene came four men carrying a bed with a paralyzed man on it. They were determined to get their friend in to see Jesus. It would be appropriate to consider Isaiah 55:6-7 at this point. Verses six and seven read, “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

JOHN EGGER You Gotta Have

FAITH

The opportunity to get their friend to see the Lord was now. But the crowds were a problem as the house was full and it was standing room only outside, so they pursued the only option that was available. The house had a stairway outside to the roof, so they carried the man on his bed up the stairs to the roof. They figured where Jesus was and proceeded to remove the tiling from the roof and lowered the man through the roof — right down in front of Jesus. The passage reads, “When he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee”. The religious leaders said, “Who is this which speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?” Jesus, knowing their thoughts, answered them, saying, “What reason you in your hearts? Whether is easier, to say, Your sins be forgiven you; or to say, Rise up and walk? But that you may know that the Son of man has power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto you, Arise, and take up your bed, and go into your house”. Immediately, the paralyzed man

rose up on his own before them all, picked up his bed and went to his own house, glorifying God. We read that all the people were amazed and glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, “We have seen strange things today”. The one pressing priority was to somehow get the man to see Jesus. With a little ingenuity and thinking outside the box — or maybe outside the house — they managed to succeed in bringing their friend to where he could receive help. So many are content to put their need off and say that some other time will do to seek the Lord. They assume there will be other opportunities that come along later. Jesus told the man first that his sins were forgiven because this was the most important need he had. Jesus knew the scribes and Pharisees would be upset when he told the man this. He also knew their pride kept them from seeing their own needs, but the man who was paralyzed felt his need and welcomed the words of Jesus. So the paralyzed man received a double blessing and the religious leaders went away empty. It wasn’t too long until Jesus suffered on the cross under the punishment of our sins and gave his life for the sins of the entire world. The formerly paralyzed man is now in heaven now and is still glorifying God for his mercy. Will you be there? John Eggers is an elder in the assembly that meets in Westsyde Gospel Hall in Kamloops.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

If you’re single, get prepared to mingle, Aries. If you’re attached, then your relationship will only grow stronger in the days to come. Romance is in the air, so embrace it.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, even if you’re feeling a little stuck in your relationships, do not push others away. There may be a solution you’re simply not seeing. Delve deeper.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, it may be time to break away from the typical routine — at least for a little while. This can offer you a new perspective that puts you on an interesting path.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Someone close to you may be thinking of a reinvention and wants your opinion, Cancer. Support this person and all the changes he or she desires.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Good habits will pay off in the days to come, Leo. So if you’re ready to make some changes, think about those that will improve your overall health and well-being.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, if you’re feeling pressured to have fun, then you probably will not enjoy yourself no matter how hard you try. Try not to force things and take them as they come.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 15 - SEPTEMBER 21, 2021 - Sept 23/Oct 23

A place you always enjoyed visiting may no longer hold the same appeal for you, Libra. That’s okay because everyone grows and evolves. Enjoy finding a new source of inspiration.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22

You must make yourself available if you expect others to want to share ideas or information with you, Scorpio. So far you may have been a bit distant. Change this.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Figure out where your comfort levels lie, Sagittarius. Only then will you know just how far beyond those levels you’re willing to push yourself to try new things.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Capricorn, even though you have strong instincts about something, your emotions also may be running hot. Therefore, you might not be able to trust your instincts just yet.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, your energy levels could be waning, but that’s because you have been pushing yourself very hard lately. It’s time to rest to be recharged for later.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20

Don’t let others be your sole focus this week, Pisces. Figure out how to put yourself first without ignoring those around you.

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 wilderness.

What to expect with an Interior Elite Contracting build:

2020 TRAINING HOUSE

■ First, you fill out a preliminary consultation form. This allows us to begin formulating your rough project pricing estimate. ■ Then it’s time to choose project plans. Our friendly and experienced staff will take you through our showroom and design room to get an accurate picture of what to expect with your particular home build.

■ Now that we have all of the information required for an accurate project overview, our team will provide you with an in-depth quote. This quote will be delivered within a reasonable timeframe. Once the quote is accepted, we can move on to the permit process. ■ While we await permit approval, the fun begins! You can pick out your Bryan and his staff were professional from the very start of our project. We chose new patio doors and Bryan gave us a quote and start date. Doors arrived on time and his crew showed up when scheduled. They worked efficiently and carefully and cleaned up debris after themselves. Very happy with the finished results and final invoice was exactly as quoted. No surprises. We would use Bryan and his crew again in the future. ~ JOE & JO-ANNA SABYAN

I would give this company 10 stars if I could. We wanted a 6’ closet built into one of our rooms. It was completed in a very short time, and looks like it was always part of our home. Right from the start, Bryan is professional and always kept us informed when someone would be arriving to start work. There was absolutely no lag time. The framers came first, and completely covered our floors to protect them. The wood they used was perfect. The drywaller did a perfect job. The ‘mudder’ was awesome - almost no drywall dust in our home. The finisher completed the closet perfectly. Everyone cleaned up after themselves. Our final invoice was the same as the original amount we were quoted. On top of that, this company was 3 times cheaper than another quote we had received. Would only use Elite Contracting for any future work we wanted done. ~ LESLIE STUCKEL

preferred selections for your dream home. An experienced professional Interior Designer is available in-house at an hourly rate to help make your dreams a reality. Book an appointment, but walk-ins welcome. ■ As the build begins, we will keep you updated with an in-depth schedule that will always be kept up to date. We keep clear and open communication with you at all times, so that you are always aware of the project’s state at any given time. Thanks to our design-build approach, you only have to keep track of one line of communication for every part of your home build project. ■ Once the project is complete, your 2-5-10 Home Warranty kicks in, and you are the proud new owner of your very own dream home! We contracted Interior Elite for our bathroom shower renovation and to tile our backsplash and install our chandeliers. We recently moved to Kamloops and were not familiar with any of the contracting companies in town. We went online and found Interior Elite and we read reviews from clients who they had done work for. We were pleased with the reviews we read so we hired them. Let me tell you, Bryan and his team certainly deliver. We were a bit apprehensive cause you never know what to expect. From the moment Bryan came over to give us the quote, from the start of the project to the finish he and his team were phenomenal!! They are very professional, exceptional tradesmen, and they deliver what they promise. They also provided their design expertise to bring our vision to fruition. We are very pleased with the work they did and would highly recommend them. Bryan and team thanks so much for a job well done!! ~ ANA

We employed Interior Elite to renovate our bathroom. We made a very wise decision. Interior Elite demonstrated exceptional professionalism throughout the entire renovation process: communication was great; timelines were adhered to; attention to details was evident; and most importantly... the finished bathroom looks awesome. Bryan takes great pride in his levels of servicing and the quality of his work. I’ve already employed Interior Elite for another project. ~ DEL KOMARNISKI
