Downtown is focal point of mayoral debate Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

He may be campaigning on a platform that accuses the current Kelowna city council of being indecisive, but mayoral hopeful Walter Gray had praise for at least one council initiative Wednesday. During a lunch-hour all-candidates meeting sponsored by the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce, Gray, a former mayor of the city, called the current council’s decision to revamp the aging main street downtown, Bernard Avenue, “one of the greatest decision’s ever made in Kelowna.” His description of the $14-million project, set to start in the fall of 2012 and continue in the spring and fall of 2013, came during a question about what he would do as mayor to help development downtown. The question was posed by saying nothing had changed downtown in 10 years, something that did not sit well with Gray’s opponent, incumbent mayor Sharon Shepherd. “I get discouraged when I hear nothing has been done downtown in 10 years” she said noting the emergence of the Cultural District, improvements along Ellis Street, the creation of Jim Stuart Park and plans to expand the park when the Kelowna Yacht Club moves to the space currently held by the downtown seniors’ centre on the lake shore, which in turn is being relocated to Parkinson Recreation Centre. Both Shepherd and Gray said they believe the downtown has a lot of potential, with Gray calling it the “heart of the city.” But Gray said it needs “densification” in order to not only bring more life to the area, but also help improve its safety by having more people out and about in the evenings. And his criticism was not just reserved for the existing council. “I’m disappointed that good activities have come here and have been cancelled. I feel there is not enough passion (for the events) at city hall,” he said. Another candidate in the race for mayor, Cal Condy, pointed to the rejection of the controversial CD-21 zone which would have seen private sector redevelopment of


ON ALL FOURS…Kelowna RCMP members conducted a thorough ground search at a construction site near the corner of

Highland Drive and Clifton Road on Tuesday and Wednesday after an abandoned rifle was discovered. “If you’re going to do something, you should do it properly, so we’re combing the area to ensure there wasn’t anything else that’s dangerous or of interest to us,” said RCMP Const. Steve Holmes. The firearm discovery sparked an around-the-clock police presence at the property. “Once they found it, they called us because one doesn’t find a firearm on public property very often,” Holmes said. Moving forward, assuming more weapons aren’t found, the investigation into the gun will focus on its history and whether it has been used in a crime.”

FourChange picks its four candidates for change on council Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

FourChange has named the four candidates it’s endorsing in the upcoming civic election in Kelowna. The group, headed up by 10 local business people, has endorsed former Kelowna fire chief Gerry Zimmermann, former Social Credit provincial cabinet minister and past Kelowna city councillor Carol Gran, Gail Given, a current Central

Okanagan Board of Education trustee, and Colin Basran, a local businessman and former CHBC news reporter. At a press conference on Tuesday, the group said it made its choice after 23 of the 32 non-incumbent councillor candidates responded to a questionnaire that the group sent out a few weeks ago. The questionnaire was not sent to the eight incumbents who are running for re-election. After drawing up a

short list, the group interviewed the shortlisted candidates before making its final four selections. When FourChange announced in late Septemeber that it would seek out four candidates to support, the only incumbents given their support would be Robert Hobson, Graeme James, Andre Blanleil and Luke Stack. FourChange has since backed away from that position, with one of the organization’s spokespeople, David Langton,

saying prior to Tuesday’s announcement that they would not publicly support any incumbents. While the endorsed quartet said they are grateful for the support, all four said they do not consider themselves part of a team or a slate in this election as a result of the endorsement. All said they will continue to run individual campaigns. Gran said she was happy to have the endorsement and admires

FourChange for making its choices public. Like the others, Gran said she wants to see council focus more on business. Given, the widow of the late Kelowna city councillor Brian Given, said she was “honoured” by the endorsement, particularly because of the rigorous process that was used to select the four candidates. “I still don’t see it as a slate. We are four individual candidates,” she said.

Zimmermann said while the four have some views that are similar, they also have differing views on issues. He said the fact they were all endorsed by the same group should not be viewed as the foursome joining forces in this election. “I’m not marrying into any one view,” he said. Basran said at the end of the day, all the candidates want the same things for the city—jobs, safe streets and proper ser-

vices for residents. He said winning the FourChange endorsement was a huge boost for his campaign. Meanwhile other groups have also publicly endorsed candidates as well. Basran, Will Gow, Tisha Kalmanovich and Mohini Singh have all been endorsed by the North Okanagan Labour Council. The civic election takes place Nov. 19.

West Kelowna candidates vie Food bank’s message: Vote on Nov. 19 for attention ▼ ELECTION BRIEFS


Residents got an opportunity to match faces to the signs, brochures and buttons that have been scattering around West Kelowna since Oct. 14. Mayoral and councillor candidates visited the Westbank Lions Community Centre on Thursday evening for the first all-candidates meeting of this year’s civic election. Put on by the West Kelowna Residents’ Association, the meeting gave all candidates an opportunity to introduce themselves, answer three questions and give closing remarks. The evening was especially beneficial to new candidates who were previously unknown to many members of the community. Candidates Gux Albrecht, Rick de Jong, Rusty Ensign, Gordon Ficke, Randall Robinson and Cathy Sinclair attempted to steal the spotlight from incumbent councillors David Knowles, Gord Milsom, Duane Ophus, Bryden Winsby and Carol Zanon. The only councillor candidate not in attendance was Mike Smith. The first question posed to Albrecht, de Jong and Ensign was whether or not council’s decision to increase taxes by approximately 50 per cent of what was suggested by the chief financial officer three years ago, was a smart idea. “I believe this community needs to focus on economic development so we will not be faced with tax increases,” said Albrecht. “Government needs to realize that they do not have any finances of their own: The tax burden is on the taxpayers and the business investment community of West Kelowna,” said de Jong. “You get what you pay for. It’s about taxation reserves, so if you don’t want any taxes, you’re not going See Attention A4


The Kelowna Community Food Bank is actively encouraging all eligible voters to exercise their democratic right to vote on civic election day, Nov. 19. “Voter turnout is in steady decline,” said Vonnie Lavers, the Kelowna food bank executive director. “Less than 20 per cent of eligible voters bothered to vote in our last civic election. This trend says that more people are feeling disconnected from the issues and the democratic process. This is a huge problem.” In an effort to boost voter turnout this year, Lavers is in particular reminding food bank recipients to vote. “We’ve included an election notice in our hampers through November. If people want progress on issues like affordable housing, chronic hunger, poverty and the living wage, they are going to have to get involved.” Lavers says their message is simple: Every vote counts. “Our staff and volunteers are encouraging recipients to educate themselves and to find out where the various candidates stand on the issues that matter to them,” La-

The Society for Learning in Retirement Kelowna will host a Kelowna all-candidates forum on seniors’ issues tonight (Thursday), 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. This forum will focus on seniors’ issues at the municipal level featuring questions on the areas of cultural/recreation services, transportation, seniors

affordable housing, and age-friendly initiatives.


Qualified electors may now apply for a mail ballot for the District of West Kelowna civic election. People wishing to vote by mail ballot are qualified to do so if they: • have a physical disability, illness or injury that affects their ability to vote at another voting opportunity, or • expect to be absent from the District of West Kelowna on general voting day and at the times of

all advance voting opportunities. West Kelowna mail ballot applications will be available on the district’s website,, or at Municipal Hall, 2760 Cameron Rd. Applicants will be sent a mail ballot starting the first day of advance voting—Wednesday, Nov. 9—and up until 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17. It is the elector’s responsibility to ensure mail ballots are received by the Chief Election Officer at 2760 Cameron Rd. no lat-

er than 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. .

Candidates quizzed on illegal suites and police spending Attention from A3 to get any services,” said Ensign. The first question asked of Ficke, Knowles and Milsom dealt with council’s decision to extend an amnesty period by another year for owners of illegal secondary suites to come forward, despite a dismal three per cent response in the first amnesty period. “Illegal suites have always been a very touchy

issue in every municipality. I think that it was a good policy and I think that we should continue with it,” said Ficke. “If there weren’t the secondary suites, the people would literally be out on the streets. I think it was really important that council put this policy forward,” said Knowles. “The whole idea was to ensure that the suites were safe and to encourage affordable housing and to ensure that

the owners paid their fair share of utilities. The results have been favourable compared to most communities in the Okanagan,” said Milsom. Ophus, Robinson and Sinclair were asked if they believed council has done enough to gauge public reaction before introducing new bylaws. Ophus took the opportunity with the microphone to address an earlier question. “I want to go back to

the tax question that was asked because I want to make the point that council increased taxes less than five per cent every single year because of savings we found. It was never done at the expense of the reserves. We went out with our staff and found savings so that we could bring those savings home to the taxpayer,” said Ophus. “Everybody’s hearts are in the right place, (but) we need to do a much bet-

ter job of hearing what people are saying, paying attention to that and looking for the pitfalls that might affect the people that didn’t happen to show up at the council meeting,” said Robinson. “I think the bylaws need to go to the people. Far more advertising needs to be done as far as the bylaws go,” said Sinclair. The last group of councillors to answer the first round of questions was Trenn, Winsby and Zanon. They were asked if they were satisfied with where their police dollars were going. “Every one of us that’s a property owner here pays an average of $346 per year for policing,” Trenn said. “I never used the police last year, can I get my money back? Are we getting good value for it? It’s a very expensive item and

I think it needs attention; we can work with our finance department (to) dig out good information. “There is a short answer and that is: Yes. Without a thorough cost benefit analysis, I can’t give you precise details on whether we’re getting full value for what we’re spending on protective service,” Winsby said. “But I’ll give you some numbers. Between 2009 to 2011, break and enters are down 22 per cent for residences, theft of auto is down 39 per cent, fraud is down 50 per cent (in West Kelowna). I’d give the police credit. “You’ve given me a really tough one to answer because I have a son who is an RCMP officer, a son-in-law who is a fire chief and a son who is a paramedic. Each of them would tell us that we’re getting far more value in service that we’re actually paying for,” added Zanon.

The two mayoral candidates, incumbent Doug Findlater and former mayor Rosalind Neis, faced off with a unique set of questions. They were asked what their vision of West Kelowna is. “We’re already an attractive, livable place. We have to have safe places to walk, drive and cycle. We can get a good start on that by upgrading our major roads with sidewalks, bike paths and streetlights. Our greatest public asset is our waterfront and we have to begin the transformation of that,” said Findlater. “Three years from now I hope that everyone here will say that the council that had just served them, listened to them. I hope they say that the council was able to bring some change to our community and heal some of the old wounds that we all know exist,” said Neis.


City works to get the vote out Voter from A3 residents that they can pick the place and voting day of their choice as polling stations located across the city are open to all eligible voters,” said chief election officer Karen Needham. “We’ve not only added new voting locations this year, we’ve also ex-

panded the number of advance voting opportunities. So Kelowna, come out, you have five days to cast your vote.” Eligible voters are residents of Kelowna for at least 30 days, 18 years or older, who have lived in B.C. for at least six months and are Canadian citizens. To vote, bring two

pieces of ID to prove residency and identity (at least one with a signature) to the polling station. The first day of advance voting is Nov. 9.

Mayoral hopeful slowed by illness Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kim Ouellette’s campaign for mayor will not include public appearances or filling out questionnaires. Ouellette, who is running in her third campaign for mayor of Kelowna, announced Wednesday she is too ill to appear at all-candidates’ forums or complete questionnaires submitted to candidates.

Fintry Queen may need to be moved Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The future of an icon of the downtown Kelowna waterfront will not be allowed to delay the city’s plans for a new city marina at the foot of Queensway. City council has given staff the green light to start the work needed to move the shore-bound Fintry Queen to Sutherland Bay. The ship, a one-time car ferry that was turned into a paddlewheeler to provide tourists and dinners with lake cruises, has been tied up at the dock off Kerry Park for the last few years. The company that last owned it has gone out of business, the boat seized by the courts and ordered to be sold. Council was told there was some interest by one person who thought the Fintry Queen could be turned into a floating museum and restaurant. But council said that should not stop its marina plans. Councillors want the old vessel shipped elsewhere to accommodate plans to issue a Request For Proposals for a new Kelowna marina. The city wants the Fintry Queen gone from the downtown waterfront by next March and will need a court order to have it moved.

her illness, Ouellette said that if elected mayor Nov. 19, her illness would not interfere with her ability to fulfill her duties over the next three years.

“I am not pulling out of the race. My name will still be on the ballot,” she said. “But I have to look after my health.” Ouellette said she still

has her campaign website up and running and her campaign Facebook page and there is contact information on both if any voters want to talk to her.

Impact yet to be understood


hat’s the big deal? A group of business people feeling disenfranchised from the existing council get together and decide to endorse four candidates for council. Other organizations active in civic politics do that every election. The difference this time around is they don’t make a big deal about it, and they don’t target specific incumbents for defeat, at least not before even seeing what other candidates will

come forward to be voting alternatives. While the release of the names of those four incumbents was unintended, a little naïvety in thinking that Internet communication is the same as a close-door meeting put FourChange in the media spotlight. But now while the mystery of choosing four candidates for them is over, the reality of what FourChange hopes to achieve may be something different than was originally intended. Almost before the announce-

ment of support was made Tuesday, the four candidates and FourChange were disavowing any sense of obligation. So if the candidates are saying they will speak their minds on council and be owing to no one, and FourChange is encouraging people to continue checking out all the candidates, what was all the fuss about? A little of that has to do with being associated with a pro-business lobby effort, and how that might not go over with citizens

who have rejected such initiatives as the CD-21 zone proposal in the past. Theirs is a collective voice in our city that is not being openly considered when the mayoral and city candidates advocate their pro-business stance. FourChange’s biggest contribution has been to generate more interest in the election, to get talking about issues and to hopefully encourage more people to vote. Whether that works to the favour of FourChange’s chosen candidates remains to be seen.

A vote for change means actually getting out and voting


t’s been said that there is nothing as constant as change. And Kelowna, over the last 20 years, has been a testament to that. A growing population and the services it requires as well as the ramifications of exploding development— at least up until the last few years— and a movement away from a reliance on agriculture and tourism as the sole economic staples here have changed this city. And so too have the expectations from both inside and outside Kelowna when it comes to issues that used to be handled by higher levels of government so city hall could concentrate on providing services, building roads, sidewalks and making sure the toilets flush. So when the word “change” gets

And by

lacking, it appears to mean not being as pro-business and pro-development as FourChange would like to see council be. Other groups have, and are also expected, to endorse candidates as well—that’s the nature of elections. But change is not just about replacing faces at a table. Change is about doing things differently. And therein lies the question. Do Kelowna residents want to the city run differently? With 40 candidates running for the eight councillor positions available and five people running for mayor, voters will have a myriad of choices when it comes time to vote. There will be well-known names on the ballot and not-so-well-known

ones. There will be candidates with lots of experience and others with little. There will be younger, middleaged and older people vying for votes. And there will be candidates whose views mirror yours and those whose views do not. The key, as always, is the voters. If you want change, make it happen. But if you don’t vote—like more than 80 per cent of city residents in 2008—don’t complain. If you can’t be bothered to vote for the change you want, why should anyone listen when you don’t get it.

Comments from the web City a community To the editor:

Our View: Gun Registry Fiscal Waste to End, Oct. 26 Capital News. Registries, in general, serve no legitimate purpose, handguns or otherwise. If police are using the database to see if there are guns in a residence, they are going to get themselves killed. Liberals around the world fail to accept that legally owned firearms in the hands of the law abiding are not the threat for police. If the officer is about to enter a premises to question someone who is a criminal, and the database says “no guns” and he fails to proceed with caution, it will be bagpipes and roses. Officers always need to act as if everyone has a gun until proven otherwise, in which case the regis-


try is not about officer safety, not that it ever was. Ask gun owners in England what a gun registry is used for. They will tell you that it is to find out who has guns and where they are kept. Open your eyes people. What importance is the location and number of firearms to any government? It tells them where to go to round them up. There is no other legitimate purpose, not officer safety, not crime reduction, not taxation—only confiscation. If you think that disarming citizens is a good Idea, keep watching England—the summer riots were just the beginning. 2alago

Money wasted on new schools To the editor: The provincial government has announced it will build a new school in West Kelowna, while the site where Lakeview Heights elementary once sat sits empty on prime land the school district sold in 2003 for a fraction of what this new school will cost. In the meantime, parents who live in Lakeview Heights are driving their kids right past the next closest school (Hudson Road Elementary) to Rose Valley and Shannon Lake in search of schools they perceive as “better” than Hudson but as good as the school that has now been torn down.

It is this trend, along with explosive development in areas that cannot support it, that has led to the need for a school we can’t afford and wouldn’t need if government were to have limited development (or out-of-catchment enrolment) in areas where the schools were already full. There is no doubt that Rose Valley and Shannon Lake need a new school, however, this need is one the municipal government created by allowing development in those areas rather than in Lakeview Heights, where land is plentiful and a perfectly good school once sat. Anne-Rachelle McHugh Lakeview Heights

restrictions that make a development unfeasible and have a process that is not frustrating. I don’t see this vision and value in our current mayor and the majority of council. Nor do not see the leadership in our current mayor or the decisiveness we need from the majority of this council. Residential development has gone from 1,711 units in 2007 to 820 units in 2010 and commercial/industrial development has gone from 658,434 sq. ft. in 2007 to 354,295 sq. ft. in 2010. Yet full-time equivalent city staff has gone from 422 in 2007 to 512 in 2010 (excluding police, fire and utilities). In this election Mayor Shepherd is stating her number one issue is to have a zero or close to zero property tax increase. Where was the leadership of Mayor Shepherd and the majority of council in the last three years? Why was there no discussion during budget deliberations to reduce staff levels in planning, building and engineering? What is the same staff doing with half the customers they had in 2007? If this was a business and the economic times were such that the business lost 50 per cent of their volume, they could not afford to keep the same staff levels, no matter how talented they were. They would have reduced costs rather than increase costs. This has not happened with this current council. There are some members of this council that understand these business concepts but they are in a minority. They need to have colleagues elected who will

While most of us do not understand the inner workings of a corporation, we know what one is—a business—a money-making enterprise that sees everything and everyone as a profit or a loss, a benefit or a deficiency, a shareholder or a nonshareholder. And while, of course, there are corporations functioning within Kelowna, these businesses do not make up the city, nor should they be the primary concern of our governing bodies. So, I’d like to remind all electoral candidates that Kelowna is, first and foremost, a community. It is a group of people who have come to call this piece of the earth home. Not profits. Not employees. Not shareholders. People.

And this is who our governing bodies are in place for—the people. The families and facilities that make Kelowna a vibrant, healthy community. A community that is looking to create longterm sustainability, not short term profits. A community that is a home, not a workplace. A community that looks to our grandchildren and asks how we can better the world for them, rather than looking to old-guard politicians to ask how we can make more money. And to the community of Kelowna, a reminder as you go to the polls that a government functions primarily for you— the citizen. It is a body that is there to represent your interests and concerns, your family and friends, your well-being and safety. Let us continue to look to those people who will best represent us as citizens in this beautiful community. Melissa Shea, Kelowna

Developers make the economics of a city work To the editor: The City of Kelowna mayor and council deal with many issues and when they vote they do so based on their vision and values. The tone taken by many letter writers indicates that development is and developers are somehow a bad thing for our city. I have dealt with developers and builders in Kelowna since 1972. They are truly the risk takers. If someone had not taken a risk, put up their own money to buy some land and develop it, we would not have the houses we live in and our favourite grocery store or clothing store would not have a place in which they can operate their business. I would guess that 80 per cent of all Kelowna businesses do not own the space from which they operate their business. They lease their space from developers. The alternative to developers is some level of government putting in subdivisions and building commercial/industrial buildings. I prefer a system that encourages developers to continue to take the risk and develop residential and commercial properties. Two major things prevent development from happening—restrictions that make the development unfeasible and a process that frustrates the developer. Future growth will happen although there are some ‘I am here now so close the door’ type of people in our city. In order for developers to continue the take the risks and meet our future growth, we need to have a city staff and city council that encourage development, don’t place


have the business sense to understand and control costs, reduce staff levels if need be, and make good solid decisions that will encourage growth and development from the private sector. In order to have a change on council we need to have a concerted effort to elect people that have alternative vision and values to some of the incumbents. For me I will be voting for…the suggestions from Not because I can’t think

for myself or that I will agree with all of their suggestions, but because I want change and I understand the math. There are more than three to four new people that would do a better job than some of the incumbents but with 32 new people running for election as councillor, math tells me that unless a large number of voters vote for the same three or four people, the incumbents will be re-elected.

Two Kelowna chefs will compete regionally Friday in Vancouver for the right to represent Vancouver at the national competition: Chef Rod Butters of RauDz Regional Table and Chef Mark Filatow of Waterfront Restaurant and Wine Bar. At Wednesday’s launch of the championships, in between preparation of tasting plates of elk tortellini with red currant au jus and red cabbage, Filatow said, “What we do on plates is what Kelsey (Serwa) does on the slopes.” Serwa is a world champion ski cross racer who also grew up in Kelowna, and told those assembled she wouldn’t have been able to achieve that without the funding that came from this effort

He said the public was kept out of the picture for too long and that hurt the chance of getting public support. “City hall needs to be more open to public suggestions,” he said. The forum addressed several issues including homelessness, transportation and environmental issues. There was general agreement among the candidates that housing is critical to helping improve the quality of life for many of the less fortunate in the city, and the water and air quality are the top environmental concerns facing the city. Condy, who choked tup when he spoke about the need for more affordable housing to get people off the streets, said there is no need in this town for people to be left out in the cold. On transportation, Gray said there is a need to identify corridors for a second crossing and when

Grizzly trapped Bear from A1 Before the grizzly bear was transported, they equipped it with an ear tag so it can be identified and its movements checked on if it comes into contact with people again. The bear was taken up Beaver Lake Road, “far enough that we hope he won’t return,” said the CO. Myroniuk figures the grizzly is a three or fouryear-old male. The vineyard where it was caught was actually well-protected with a tall fence, but the grizzly dug underneath the fence to get in and feast on ripe fruit, Myroniuk reported. One good sign in its behaviour was that it was not day-active, so it has retained its natural fear of humans. There have also been recent sightings of a grizzly in the area of Gallagher’s Canyon, so Myroniuk wonders whether that one might have been a sibling and they chummed together and ended up moving down into the valley together looking for food.

Bulmer ready to lead Rockets Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Being on the ice with his Kelowna Rockets teammates in practise this week brought a much needed smile back to Brett Bulmer’s face. The 19-year-old forward’s National Hockey League dream was put on hold last weekend when he was reassigned to the WHL team by the Minnesota Wild. Still, as disheartened as he was initially, Bulmer insists he’s ready to make the best of his return to Kelowna. “It was pretty disappointing, I thought I was going to be there and I worked hard to make that an opportunity,” Bulmer said Tuesday before practise. “Being 19, you don’t want to rush things, going back to junior is only going to help me, and benefit me I think. “It’s something you dream about as a kid, and I got a big taste of it,” he said of his time in the NHL. “It’s tough to go back, but I can’t really dwell on things, I need to move forward.” Bulmer played nine games with the Wild, scoring no goals, adding three assists and a +1 rating. Rather than keeping Bulmer through the 10game mark and activating the first year of this threeyear contract, the Wild opted to give the Prince George native one more year of seasoning in major junior. Bulmer, who will make his season debut with Kelowna Friday at home to Portland, is ready to assume a leadership role with the Rockets, on and off the ice. “I need to be a huge leader for this team and try help every single kid in that room, just be a great teammate to them…and be a guy everyone in the room can count on.” And what does Bulmer think about the possibility of suffering an emotional letdown after experiencing the best month of his hockey life ?

“Not at all,” Bulmer said. “I’ve got to keep the same level of play and you know, it might feel a little different at practise, and the first couple of games, but I played here I know what it’s like and I also played at the higher level, so I need to bring that here.



“I wouldn’t have got as many minutes playing (in Minnesota) as I will here, and being 19 I still have a big year develop.” Another source of motivation for Bulmer being back in junior is the prospect of an invite to the Canadian junior team’s selection camp in December for the 2012 World Junior Championship in Edmonton and Calgary. “(The world juniors) is something I think about, it’s definitely in the back of my head as motivation and I definitely want to be there.” Bulmer’s return couldn’t come at a more opportune time for the Rockets who are riddled with injuries. Six players are currently sidelined, however help could come from forward Jessey Astles who is expected to return this weekend after missing nine games with a head injury. The Rockets and Winterhawks will play a doubleheader at Prospera Place, with face off both Friday and Saturday nights at 7. whenderson

Gouldsborough. “Let’s get number one because they’re number one. It’s kind of interesting to be on the other side now, because they’ve got the bulls-eye on their back and we’re the ones aiming for it.” The men’s match on Friday will feature a pair of unbeaten teams. The Heat (2-0) took two matches from Winnipeg last weekend, while the T’Birds (2-0) took a weekend set from the University of Regina. Based on last week’s matches, the Heat looks to pack more of an offensive punch, while the Thunderbirds have an imposing defense with a tall front line. UBC Okanagan coach Greg Poitras expects his squad to play much the same way as is did in last weekend’s sweep. “Our approach will be consistent from last weekend: run an efficient offense and manage our errors,” said Poitras. “UBC is big, but that is not going to effect our confidence and how we attack them. We have to expect longer rallies this weekend than versus Winnipeg. Hopefully we are those team winning those long fought points.”

For the second week in a row, history will be made inside the UBC Okanagan gymnasium. Last weekend, both Heat volleyball squads played their first ever CIS matches against the University of Winnipeg. This weekend, two UBC programs—Okanagan and Vancouver— will meet head on for the first time ever in Canada West conference play. The Heat and Thunderbirds will square off on Friday and Saturday nights in Kelowna, with the women’s matches starting at 6 p.m., and the men at 8 p.m. In the Thunderbirds, the Heat women will face the four-time defending CIS champs and the topranked team in the nation. For the perennial collegiate powerhouse UBCO team, this weekend’s matches will feature a reversal of roles as the Heat will now be the decided underdogs. Heat veteran Kaylan Gouldsborough knows from experience what the favoured T’Birds go through on a weekly basis. “It feels like you’ve got a big bulls-eye on your back, like everyone wants to take you down,” said

Heat wrap preseason Knights win VCS tourney Heat wrap up preseason The UBC Okanagan men’s basketball squad concluded its 2011-12 preseason schedule with a 78-65 loss to the VIU Mariners on Sunday at the Kelowna campus. Yassine Ghomari paced the Heat attack with 19 points, with Steve Morrison, Simon Pelland and Bret Macdonald contributing 15 points apiece. The Heat, who finished exhibition play with a 3-7 record, will open their inaugural season in the Canada West confer-

ence on Friday, Nov. 11 in Lethbridge, and Saturday, Nov. 12 at the University of Calgary. The UBC Okanagan women will also open up 2011-12 in Lethbridge and Calgary. The Heat women closed their preseason Friday at War Memorial gym with a 75-67 loss to the UBC Thunderbirds. The Heat started slowly as the Thunderbirds jumped out to a 25-11 first quarter lead, then extended the margin to 5026 at the half. But the second half be-

longed to the Heat as they won the last two quarters, 21-12 and 20-13. “It was really good to see the girls regroup at the half, step up their defense, and put two quarters of good play together,” said Heat coach Heather Semeniuk. “Team defense was a huge factor as well as full bench support offensively as every Heat player got on the score sheet. This was a very positive step for the team as our last exhibition game before we begin regular season play.”

The Kelowna Christian Knights took care of business at the Vernon Christian boys volleyball tournament by claiming the gold medal. The Knights, ranked No. 2 in B.C. at the A level, defeated the host VCS team in straight sets in the final, 25-17, 25-19. KCS was coming off a 2-0 win over Pleasant Valley in the semifinals, while Vernon Christian had been put to the test in a hard, three-set match against Cedars Christian. “The KCS boys played well in the final, using

steady play and a mutiple attack to overcome Vernon, who seemed to by quite tired after their tough semi with Cedars,” said Knights coach Dave Bingham. Ben Van Dyk was recognized as the player of the game in the final, while KCS setter Connor Loewen was picked as the tournament MVP. The Okanagan senior A boys championship will be held Nov. 19 and 19 in Vernon.


A pair of 2A level teams from the Central Okanagan raised eyebrows with their play last weekend at the Thompson Rivers University high school boys volleyball tournament. In a 24-team field, which included several top-10 AAA teams, the Coyotes finished in a tie for seventh place while the Huskies ended up in 10th spot. Ranked No. 4 in AA in B.C., George Elliot finished atop their pool for the third straight tournament, with wins over per-

ennial AA contender Mt. Sentinel 25-18, 25-18, and the No. 4 ranked AAA team in the province, Earl Marriot, 25-22, 26-24. In the first game of the playoffs, GESS knocked off Kelly Road from Prince George, the 10th ranked team in AAA, 2-1 (25-20, 28-30, 15-8). Playing in the top eight, the Coyotes then lost to Langley Christian (AA No. 2) in two sets, 21-25 and 17-25. Coach Chris Frehlick and the Coyotes wrapped up the tournament losing to AAA No. 8 Elgin Park in two close games, 2325, 24-26v to place seventh. Meanwhile, the Huskies went 3-3 at TRU to take 10th place. OKM’s final match produced an upset win over the Mt. Boucherie Bears, the No. 7-ranked team in AAA. After splitting the first two sets by identical 2523 scores, the Huskies won the deciding set 1511. Alex Forcade had eight kills and five stuff blocks, libero Taylor Robinson provided steady

passing and defense, while Alex Beitel’s huge block clinched the match. This victory put the Huskies in the consolation final against PenH who had defeated KSS in the other semi-final. OKM fought hard but fell short 26-24, 25-23 to the Lakers. Alex Forcade was selected as a second team all-star. KSS and Boucherie finished in a tie for 12th. This weekend George Elliot will host the Coyote Classic featuring many of the best AA teams in the province, as well as KSS, Mt. Boucherie, Penticton and Kelowna Christian.


The Mt. Boucherie Bears juniro boys were the top team at their own tournament last weekend. The Bears defeated Vernon’s Clarence Fulton in the championship match. Boucherie took the first set 25-20. In the second set, the Bears fell behind 9-2 but rallied for a 28-26 victory. The Bears will be in action this weekend at the OKM Top Dog Invitational.

Owls repeat as valley champs Make it 10 straight Okanagan AAA girls field hockey titles for the Kelowna Owls. KSS secured the valley championship with a 1-0 victory over South Kamloops in the final game Saturday on the Mission artificial turf. The lone marker came at the 20-minute mark of the opening half when Maddy Swordy scored on a short corner pass from Jolanda Kondrak. The Owls had several good scoring chances in the second half but couldn’t capitalize. Nav Bahia was in net for the entire game and recorded the shutout. The player of the game for KSS was Kay Bolsinger who twice saved the ball from going over the line. Jolanda Kondrak, Chelsea Marshall, Kiana Lalonde, Megan Johansen, Brooke Mapstone and Kaileigh Mapson scored the goals,

West Kelowna sculptor shares his talents with Belize Wade Paterson CONTRIBUTOR

After Jock Hildebrand bought property and built a small cabin in Belize two years ago, he fell in love with the Central American country. This led Hildebrand to show affection the best way he knows howâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; through the art of sculpting. The West Kelowna artist came across the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH), an organization created by the government of Belize in 2003 to bring together diverse government departments, which had historically worked to preserve and promote Belizean culture. Hildebrand tracked down the president of NICH and spoke to him about the possibility of initiating a few projects. One of these ideas was to create an International Sculpture Symposium. The president and members of NICH liked what they heard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really captured their imagination. With the 30th anniversary of (Belizeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) independence coming up, they thought it would be a good flagship project to

began working together to determine what the pro-

They currently have three children, ages 5, 11 and 14, all attending schools in West Kelowna. Chairperson for the board of education, Rolli Cacchioni, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dr. Oliver has distinguished him-

self in the work that he has done to provide an array of program offerings for our students, and we look forward to his continued leadership in the Central Okanagan in the years to come.â&#x20AC;?

ject would look like. They decided that the symposium, which runs from Nov. 12 to Dec. 10, will explore the role of young Belizean people who are responsible for the new Belize. Young Belizean artists will be encouraged to work alongside professional international artists to facilitate exposure to cross-cultural sculptural themes and techniques, while encouraging the development of a Belizean sculptural identity. The international artists joining Hildebrand will be: Colin Figue from the United Kingdom, Roland Mayer from Germany, Petre Petrov from Bulgaria, Caroline Ramersdorfer from Austria, Canan Somnerzdag from Turkey and Florin Strejac from Romania. According to Hildebrand, these world-class sculptors will act as mentors for the young Belizean artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belize does not have a history of stone carving. What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking a couple of sculptors who have been working with wood for quite a long time and introducing

them to carving stone. Each of us involved in the project will be taking on two assistants.â&#x20AC;? Hildebrand is also planning on going to Belize a week early to give stone carving lessons to the local artists so that they have a bit of practise before the symposium. According to Hildebrand, it can be challenging making the switch from carving wood to carving stone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving from one medium to another, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really great to have somebody who has lots of experience to show you a little shortcut thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to reduce your time by hours.â&#x20AC;? Narrowing down the field of international sculptors was no easy task. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a call and we ended up with 60 or 70 sculptors who wanted to participate. Then my wife, a friend and I reduced the number down to 20. The final pick was made by NICH.â&#x20AC;? Hildebrand said that the NICH looked at the artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience and familiarity with stone carving when deciding

who would participate in the symposium. Another project that Hildebrand will work on while in Belize is the creation of a sculpture for the main roundabout in Belize City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you exactly what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be until I go and take a look at the stone that I get. I have several ideas floating around in my head, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll wait until I take a look at the stone to see which one is going to be most appropriate.â&#x20AC;? Hildebrand is optimistic that the International Sculpture Symposium can be more than a one time event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the possibility of making it an ongoing thing is good,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very excited about getting their local sculptors to (work on) more monumental size pieces. There are several good stone quarries there so they can carve marble or granite thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from Belize, which is very good material. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big investment for a small country like this, in terms of putting the arts forward.â&#x20AC;?

The Board of Education for the Central Okanagan School District has hired Rick Oliver as its kindergarten to Grade 12 director of instruction. Oliver is filling the job vacancy created when Lisa McCullough was appointed as the new school superintendent for the Sea to Sky School District. Oliver has experience working at all levels in the school system at two different school districts. He has held the positions of teacher, counsellor, vice-principal and school principal at multiple schools, and is currently the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal in charge of the Central Okanaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s International Education Program. During his career he has also been seconded by the B.C. Ministry of Edu-

cation on two different occasions to be a project director for major provincial initiatives and in 2009 he was recognized as one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Outstanding Principals. Having recently completed his doctoral program in Educational Leadership with Simon Fraser University, Oliver is very much looking forward to the challenge of joining the senior management team. His job portfolio will include providing leadership and oversight for the elementary, middle and secondary schools located on the Westside, as well as other related duties. This is particularly appropriate since Oliver and his wife Heather have lived in that part of the school district for 19 years.

Bravery recognized in different ways H

ave you ever met a hero? You might have without really knowing it. More often than not, they are ordinary people; a neighbour or the teenager down the street, someone who wouldn’t hesitate to help others when needed. In my capacity as the Kelowna-Lake Country Member of Parliament, I’ve had a few occasions to not only meet these folks in person, but to see

them honoured for what they have done. At the end of October, I had the great privilege of attending a ceremony at Rideau Hall where Governor General David Johnston bestowed the Medal of Bravery upon a number of Canadians. I can’t tell you how proud I felt when two of the medals were given to our own constituents—Matthew Jackson and Tyler Lockerby, both of Kelowna—for saving

four people from a vehicle submerged in Griffin Lake. Two ordinary people who are heroes in our community. In fact, as we approach Remembrance Day, quite a few heroes in our community come to mind. As a young boy growing up in a middle class family in Edmonton, Remembrance Day was always an important reminder of what it meant

to make the ultimate sacrifice for others. Like most people, our family honoured our brave men and women in uniform by purchasing poppies, reciting In Flanders Fields and pausing for a moment of silence on a chilly November day precisely at the 11th hour on the 11th day. So many of those heroes have left us but others remain, especially Canada’s young veterans returning from Afghani-

stan. They all deserve to be honoured. Such was the case last Saturday, when I attended the funeral of Bishop Fraser Berry. Bishop Berry, a recipient of a Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation, was a member of the Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. Back here at home, he was a lifelong member of the Royal Canadian Legion and chaplain to the

Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of

Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they can always make an offer to buy it. A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. They were able to locate a collector for that speciÀc toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, they will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

See you at the roadshow!

recipients Matthew Jackson and Tyler Lockerby, both from Kelowna. Okanagan division of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Veterans’ Association. Right up to his passing at the age of 85, Bishop Berry continued to officiate at military and veterans’ functions and remained active in our community. He was helping veterans and their families until his last breath, always putting others first. I’ll have a chance to meet with our veterans and their families when I’m back in the riding Nov. 4 to the 13 attending some of the local Remembrance Day ceremonies. Once again this year, it will be my honour to accompany Mary Cardiff (also a recipient of the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation) at some of the ceremonies for veterans confined to hospital and retirement and home care facilities. Thanks to Cardiff’s efforts in the past 25 years,

our veterans have been able to participate in this important day of remembrance, and I know from speaking with them that it means so much. I hope you’ll buy a poppy, wear it proudly and take the time next Friday to join with our community to honour our veterans at one of our cenotaphs in Lake Country, Lions Park in Rutland or Kelowna City Park. While you’re remembering their sacrifice, I hope you’ll also take heart knowing that all around us in our community there are good people willing to do what it takes to help each other when we need it the most. These are the heroes who walk among us and it’s quite possible you are one of them. Ron Cannan is the Conservative MP for Kelowna-Lake Country. 250-470-5075

readership GETS results. Recently my business partner and I went over our marketing campaign for our new business. We are a regional trade show and need to reach the entire South, Central, and North Okanagan. One way we thought we could reach all our demographic is to use newspaper. We wondered though how we would pull it all together with multiple newspapers! We spoke to many sales people in each town or area and had to sit back and re-evaluate what we were doing. It turns out that it is a very challenging task to put together a plan to maximize circulation areas, pin down creative with multiple people, and track payments to each! You may be looking at the same situation with your business. Your pressing questions will be: How do I reach the right areas? How do I make payments and when? How do I get the e best price? How effective will this be for my business? All of these questions were answered d when we met Tanya Terrace of Capital News. Tanya took our notes and consolidated everything. She found circulation numbers for each paper, attained the best price from each ch newspaper, and put everything into one easy account. After two short meetings we had a strategy! Tanya listened to our needs then did a lot of leg work to find all the info we needed to get started. We needed to reach a lot of areas on a dime. She got us all the coverage we needed for the right price and very little hassle. She put together one invoice that covers everything on one account and one easy payment per insertion. My business partner and d I are wedding planners and started into the trade show business together. We are very detail tail oriented and visual so we have been rather demanding on the creative. We have asked for or a few changes to our insert’s aesthetics and content arrangement. Tanya and her Capital News ews counterparts are all happy to oblige! The final pressing question is probably about results. We started advertising early so we would be in brides heads for a long time and be able sell lots of tickets to the expo. This is our job as trade show coordinators, our exhibitors depend d on us to bring in the maximum amount of brides for them to meet one on one and sell their eir service effectively. It turns out we have done such a great job reaching folks in our area that at we are receiving some unexpected calls from businesses we hadn’t expected who want to be in our expo! We have had calls from people who saw us in Lakeshore News up in Salmon on Arm, and folks reading us in Penticton area as well. It turns out newspaper ads have been very effective already in helping us get our word out. t. Tanya made it very easy and we couldn’t be happier! Thanks Tanya! See you at Okanagan Bridal Expo January 8th 2012!

CURRENT SWELL, one of the top three finalists in the Peak Performance Project, will perform at O’Flannigan’s on Nov. 8.



Current Swell gears up for Peak Performance with Kelowna gig Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If the impending Okanagan winter conjures images of a convalescent stuck in dreary limbo, sunny days glimmering just beyond grasp, it’s time to break out of the box. Thankfully, November’s live music scene in Kelowna promises to be anything but square. From the release of the new K96.3 compilation CD with locals Jeff Piattelli, Thomas Kjorven and Aaron Gordon at Habitat on Nov. 2, to the Latin soul rhythms of internationally renown singer/songwriter Alex Cuba in the Rotary Arts Centre on Nov. 9, there’s plenty of opportunity to get your groove on (if you’re into talkin’ all speakeasy like). There’s one of those too, incidentally. Jazz Café has reopened for winter, with music once a month in the Black Box

Theatre, serving cold gin in old tea cups and cool tunes on the piano. If “breakout” is what you’re looking for, then one act slated for the early part of the month should stand above the rest. “Tonnes of energy and really good times” is how guitar player Scott Stanton describes his band Current Swell, playing O’Flannigan’s Nov. 8. The Victoria-based band has just been named a top three finalist in the B.C. band bootcamp, known as The Peak Performance Project. This means they have a guaranteed $50,000 heading their way and possibly up to $100,000 if they secure first prize. Kelowna band We Are the City won the very first edition of the contest, which takes bands to a Princeton ranch to learn the ins and outs of the business from industry insiders. “We knew a lot about tour-

ing, but the lawyer side of things and the rights side of things—how you own your own music and why you would sign a record label versus stay-

had a couple of others over the years. Named at the whim of their first web designer—“we had an interview and we needed



ing independent—was pretty new to us,” said Stanton, who is also an original member of Current Swell. By and larger, the band is made up of Stanton and good friend Dave Lang on guitars, Chris Peterson on drums and Dave St. Jean, though they’ve

a name and a website to give them”—Stanton said no one in the band was actually trying to be in a band when it all began. “Me and Dave (Lang) would just jam a couple of old Dylan tunes on sunny days in the backyard and then we started writing songs,” he said.

As intrinsic as good food to good wine, the gigs washed in with the music, creating a ripple in the Greater Victoria music scene. Pretty soon the group, minus a few original members and plus a few new ones, were building a name virtually on touring alone. On Oct. 25 they released their fourth album and have been touring extensively ever since, down to Seattle last week and up to the Interior for their Kelowna show before heading to the Prairies. (The other two Peak Performance finalists, The Boom Booms and The Matinée last hit Pop Okanagan.) “Ultimately, we want to make money off the band,” said Stanton. “The ultimate goal is not to have to come home from touring and go back to work.” With that clear vision dancing across the dashboard, the part-time carpenter, part-time

tile layer and generally fulltime jacks of all trades say they’re rolling along, building the name and putting the business foundation in place to make that dream a reality. The big Peak Performance Project jackpot, for example? “It’s all just going back into the band. Maybe a little bit of gear, but we’re heavily invested into the band, so we’ll use it for marketing, trying to get us touring in different countries,” Stanton said. And one can imagine it will soon be Current Swell at the top of the bill. Thus far they’ve played with the Beach Boys, Ron Sexsmith, K-OS and K’Naan (when they hit the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues festival last year), Bedouin Soundclash and Xavier Rudd. To see Current Swell in Kelowna, head to O’Flannigan’s Pub, Nov. 8; cover is $8 at the door.

Solid performances In Time but you can skip Puss In Boots IN TIME

In the new world order, time has replaced money as the new currency master. Each person does not grow old past the age of 25; however, to even out the playing field just a bit, after the age of 25 each person is given only a year of time—well, every person, except the very rich of course, who seem to have all the time in the world. Into this world of time zones and bioluminescent


Susan Steen clocks comes Will Salas (Justin Timberlake, formerly of the boy band N’ Sync) who is born in the ghetto time zone and has to eke out a living, one day at a time—literally.

The rich, on the other hand, for whom time has no meaning, live in New Greenwich (get it?) and go about their business as though they have all the time in the world—and they do. In the lower time zones 1-10, the ghetto to middle class live and have to rush daily to ensure they have time left on their bio-clocks. Most actually work for just one more day, while the cost of living costs more time

each day. Will Salas is just that, a day-to-day guy who, in a stroke of luck, gets 100 years given to him. And in his quest to give time to those in need, he starts to shift the balance of time. It’s an interesting concept as we look at our own busy lives and wonder what we would do if we only had one more day. Timberlake and his love interest (isn’t there always one?) Sylvia Weis

(played by Amanda Seyfried, former child actress and a regular on All My Children and As The World Turns) change the “balance of time” which is held in check by timekeepers.They are also at the mercy of time stealers so there are car chases and lots of running as this Bonnie and Clyde of time begin the break down the system, particularly affecting Weis’ father,who still has his first million— years that is!

This is a good way to spend a couple of hours (if you have the time). Best line: “I’ve given over 50 years of my life to this job…”said by a 30 year old, and: “It’s not illegal to change time zones, no, but it’s rare.” Three and a half reels for this solid performance by the whole cast. It could be a few minutes shorter, but then you’d have time on your hands.


I also made it to Puss In Boots. Oh why did I do this? Well, kids won’t understand why Humpty Dumpty, who all the King’s horses and all the King’s men, couldn’t put back together again, was indeed back together, with nary a scar, and that’s no yolk! Or why Mother Goose is fairly ugly, or why Jack and Jill are truly large, ugly, evil people who cannot be trusted. Or, in fact, why this movie was ever made in the first place. Puss In Boots is a

mish mash of every fairy tale and every character, and don’t bother with the 3D version, I doubt if it will improve this one at all. Sure, Antonio Banderas’ voice is wonderful, but the silly lines he’s given (most directed at his new love, Kitty Soft Paws, a declawed cat fighter voiced by Selma Hayek) are not funny to child or adult. Too bad. I love cartoons (years of psychotherapy have yet to change this) and it was shown in the largest theatre in the Okanagan. Only five of us, thankfully, were spending our Saturday night with this computer generated film folly. The rest of the town obviously have lives and way better taste—but I’m not bitter or anything. One good line was: “Cat people are crazy.” I can only give this one reel—and that’s a stretch.

Susan Steen is a local non-profit executive and movie buff.

Pintxo a casual, delicious way to dine when visiting Spain


skerrik asko San Sebastian! After a pleasant five-hour train ride across Spain we arrived in Basque country. Like our introduction to the Catalan language and culture of Barcelona, we were quickly lost in yet another strong new culture and the language of Euskara. Euskara is an ancient language that is linguistically interesting because it has not been shown conclusively to be related to any other language. Alas, the only word in the Basque native tongue that we mastered on our visit to San Sebastian was eskerrik asko- which means thank you. We utilized this world several times a day, usually after consuming something delicious, and our fumbled pronunciation and earnest effort won us many smiles. Our accommodation in San Sebastian was chosen after careful investigation through my favorite travelling tool: Trip Advisor We chose Pension Belles Artes because of its almost ridiculously high praise from Trip Advisor’s visitor reviews. Guests went on and on about Carmen and Liere the amazing mother daughter team that ran this small pensione (familyowned boarding house)I wondered, could they really be this wonderful?

You can never go wrong with a Paul Simon CD, likewise Michael Buble PAUL SIMON; SONGWRITER (SONY)

I don’t want to be too obvious about this excellent new collection of 32 Paul Simon songs, but the key to this set is simply in the title—Songwriter. This collection is not designed as a Greatest Hits package although there are many hits here, but the focus is on Simon the genius songwriter. As a result, gems such as Slip Sliding Away, Duncan, You Can Call Me Al and 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover are not on Songwriter, whereas several ‘album’ cuts are that I suppose illustrate better the song craft of our main man. Furthermore, Simon’s signature song Bridge Over Troubles Water is performed here by Aretha Franklin (Simon probably not wanting to be compared to Art Garfunkel), while the 2011 live take of The Sound Of Silence has some gorgeous acoustic jazz guitar. There are scads of single and two-disc Greatest Hits collections on the market from Simon, who actually started recording in the 1950s. If you are looking for just the hits, one of these may be what you are after. But this new beautifully appointed two-disc set has all the lyrics to the songs within and help justify the anthology’s title. B+

MICHAEL BUBLE; CHRISTMAS (143/REPRISE) I actually got this disc


Bruce Mitchell a week before Halloween but I just cannot bring myself to cover a Christmas release before November. However, Michael Buble’s new album, simply titled Christmas, cuts to the chase with 15 tracks of warm and comfy seasonal fare with mostly secular songs like It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Holly Jolly Christmas, Santa Baby and two sacred songs in Ave Maria and Silent Night. As expected, this is a light and breezy affair where I suppose the highlights are recorded with big time outside help. Buble offers a nice take of White Christmas with the re-emerging Shania Twain, while the duet with the Puppini Sisters Jingle Bells is styled like a WWII boogie song a la The Andrew Sisters. There is a generous folky version of Mis Deseos/Feliz Navidad with Thalia to close out the disc. My fave track was Its Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas where Buble channels a little Bing Crosby charm. Solid family fare with a swinging, easy going attitude.



This group opened for Avril Lavigne a couple of weeks ago but the major arena gig doesn’t seem to have done much for their career. Their single, Heatwave, barely made a ripple over the airwaves and I think this may have a correlative in the career of Lavigne herself. On the back liner of Kill The Lights the sixmember group looks like a typical cute boy band whereas the inside liner photo makes The New Cities look like they might have been fans of The Clash at one time. Lavigne too is having her own identity problems. Her new mature sound away from chasing Sk8er boys and binge shopping to a mature adult, single mom didn’t resound with her old fans as much as she had hoped for and multiple hits just did not materialize. The New Cities also sound like a band with identity issues with the faux rebellion of The New Rule and the quasi-hedonism of The Hype (a failed single) all wrapped up in cheery goodtime summer pop. Also using an ’80s sample from Baltimora and his Tarzan Boy is a little too late and cheesy for a summer could-havebeen hit with the aforementioned Heatwave. This band out of Montreal isn’t inspiring me to write “a band to watch.”



This is young 21-yearold Jason Derulo’s second album after the platinum success of his self-titled debut that was an international smash with top charting hits like Watcha Say, In My Head and Ridin’ Solo. This new disc, titled Future History, suffers from the classic “difficult second album” syndrome in that it isn’t very good and pales in comparison to its predecessor. This album only barely scraped into the top 30 and a couple of weeks later it is nowhere to be found in the top 100 album sales charts in Canada or Derulo’s native USA. He has scored only a couple of minor hits with the club-centric It Girl and the goofy I Don’t Wanna Go Home that samples Harry Belafonte’s classic Day O (The Banana Boat Song) as in the lyrics “daylight come and I don’t wanna go home” that bemoans the end of yet another night of clubbing. Derulo continues his uninspired music with a goofy sample of Toto’s Africa for the plodding mid-tempo Fight For You. I have nothing in general against club pop music but Future History is just too average in a very overcrowded field. Jason Derulo’s Future History is—passed. C

Master flamenco guitarist at Creekside A celebrated virtuoso of the flamenco guitar, voted into the top three guitarists in the world by US magazine Guitar Player, is coming to perform in Lake Country on Nov. 8. Juan Martín learned his art in the land of its origin, Andalucia in southern Spain, where he still has a home in Málaga. He now spends much of his time on tour and in London where he has formed an international company, Flamencovision, for the promotion of high quality flamenco which he rehearses and brings direct from Andalucía.

Martín is “The leading flamenco guitarist of his generation” according to the Guardian (2008). He has recorded 20 albums, mostly as a composer, the most recent of which are Serenade with the Royal Philharmonic and Solo. “In Martín’s hands flamenco is not so much a musical style as an entire culture compressed into a quivering box of air,” a Guardian reviewer wrote. His recent Barbican appearance in May 2009 was filmed in preparation for a TV program about his life and a live concert DVD was produced.

He performs with a highly distinctive compositional style formed from his early years in Málaga and developed through wide experience in Madrid. At 17 he featured in the film Donde tu estés filmed in the Málaga area. Further experience and polish came through recordings and live performances with artists such as Miles Davis and the Nash Ensemble. He was greatly honoured to be asked to play for Picasso’s 90th birthday celebrations on which he based his album Picasso Portraits. Martín’s music is cur-

rently being used as part of the Guernica exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery. His collaborations have included a CD of his compositions with film composer Mark Isham, called Painter in Sound, and Through the Moving Window, a recording with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Reviews of his solo compositions on The Andalucian Suites and Luna Negra have compared him to the great Spanish composers Tárrega and Turina. His interest in the Moorish roots of flamenco

led him to record Musica Alhambra and rediscover Andalusí and Sephardic music from the 12th and 13th centuries which is no longer performed in Spain. “Martín spans the centuries with a mixture of the dazzling and the profound,” wrote The Observer. He has also recorded albums with flamenco singers and dancers including Live en Directo that received a critics’ award in Spain. Juan Martin performs at Creekside Theatre in Lake Country, 7:30 p.m. Nov. 8.


Volunteering, voting are essence of democracy Dawn Wilkinson CONTRIBUTOR

I have heard it said that volunteering and donating money are the essence of democracy. We put our resources where our mouth is and clearly declare where our priorities lie. Volunteering is a follow through for the initial step of voting. Have you thought any more about combining the two and volunteering to support a candidate in our upcoming municipal elections? “I read your column,” three different candidates mentioned to me. “Tell them how to contact us, we’d like to hear from more people and get them directly involved.” That made sense to me, so here goes. In addition to the Volunteer Opportunities Search that I promote

every week, our website also hosts the Central Okanagan listings for community information. On, do a Community Info Search to get a Google-type of search page. In the find box you can enter District of Lake Country, City of Kelowna, District of West Kelowna or District of Peachland. The records you find will give you live links to the government websites. I double checked and each website has election information on their home pages. Review the candidates listed. Once a particular candidate stands out for you, make direct contact. Please do not wait to be asked. Exert your democratic initiative and get involved. In my Oct. 13 column about engaging in the political process, I mentioned

a few specific ways you might feel comfortable volunteering. There are social media and website tasks. You can help staff campaign offices, phone known supporters, assist with mail outs, erect signs, canvass door to door, or drive people to the polls for advance voting and on election day. You can become one of the heroes behind the scenes for the candidate of your choice. Vote with your time, your money and your X on the ballot. Please vote during the November 19 election.

Going The Extra Mile this week...

Providing a hoot for Halloween More than 150 youngsters in West Kelowna had the opportunity to participate in the Halloween Howl event thanks to the efforts of the West Kelowna Lioness Club and volunteers from Mount Boucherie Secondary School. The volunteers helped organize the myriad of activities for the kids while the Lioness club paid a dollar towards the admission cost of $3 to help make it a little more affordable for all families. Christy Stuanton, a community recreation coordinator for the District of West Kelowna, says an event like the Halloween Howl wouldn’t happen without the local volunteer and service club support. “They come out every year and help with the event,” Stuanton said.

SPOOKTACULAR… The ‘Black Mountain Group’ poses with the pumpkins that they brought to the Spooktacular Halloween Pumpkin Walk at Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park last Saturday. The third annual pumpkin walk attracted more than 1,500 people, many dressed in their Halloween costumes. They were able to stroll along the pathways of the historic nut orchard that were lined with more than 120 glowing, carved pumpkins vying for votes in the various categories available for prizes. M. Straub’s Tyrannosaurus Rex entry was voted Most Original pumpkin; the Scariest pumpkin was entered by M. Shalley; the Funniest entry was an assortment of pumpkins and gourds from P. Klimuk; the Cutest entry came from S. Kirkey; the Best Sport Team pumpkin was from S. Richard (Montreal Canadiens pumpkin); and the Best School pumpkin was submitted by the Kelowna Waldorf School Class #1 and #2. Another big winner at the event was the West Kelowna Food Bank as visitors donated over $260 in cash and enough food to fill a West Kelowna Fire Rescue fire truck. ▼ LOW VELOCITY IMPACT

Criticism for accident policy I f ever there was an unfairness screaming out to be exposed, it’s the “Low Velocity Impact” policy employed by British Columbia’s monopoly auto insurer. To understand how ridiculous this policy is, you need to understand that if you are injured in a crash that is not your fault, you have two sets of rights. One set of rights is owed to you by ICBC under a legislated policy of insurance available to most British Columbians whether or not you are at fault in a crash. This policy entitles you to a basic set of medical and disability benefits that arise out of Part 7 of the Insurance (Vehicle) Act. I will refer to those rights as “Part 7” rights. When ICBC is administering those Part 7 rights, ICBC is acting as your insurance company and, as such, owes you a legal duty to treat you fairly. The other set of rights is against the driver that wasn’t paying attention and smashed into the back of your car. Of course, due to the liability insurance monopoly in British Columbia, ICBC is typically that driver’s insurance company as well. That’s the set of rights that entitles you to full and fair compensation for any losses you suffer arising from a collision, including full income loss, full reimbursement for medical expenses, and compensation for “pain and suffering.” When negotiating that set of rights with you, ICBC’s duty is to that other driver, and doesn’t owe

you any duty to treat you fairly. The clearest distinction between how those two sets of rights are administered is when there Paul is a small amount of Hergott damage to vehicle bumpers. We are all different. Some of us will not be injured at all in a collision that causes minimal damage to the vehicle bumpers. On the other end of the spectrum, some of us, because of our particular physiology and particular dynamics of the collision, will end up suffering from a whiplash injury that will never fully resolve. It doesn’t help that vehicle bumpers are designed to withstand a certain velocity impact without crumpling. That design saves the insurance industry a lot of money in vehicle repair expense because the forces involved in the collision are not absorbed by crumpling steel. Instead, the car has a bounce effect that delivers even greater forces to the vehicle occupants. Let’s say you are sitting at a red light and your vehicle is rear-ended. You suffer injury and are referred by your doctor to expensive therapies. Your doctor tells you to take time off work to assist in your recovery. Nobody, not even the insurance company, disputes that you have been injured. The insurance adjuster specifically tells you that he believes that you are injured. In fact, you are given full access to the Part 7 benefits I described (a portion of treatment expense and in-


come loss). Remember, when administering those benefits the insurance company owes you a duty of good faith. When you ask for fair compensation for the rest of your losses, though, the insurance company outright denies your claim. Why? The answer is the Low Velocity Impact policy. There is not enough damage to the bumpers. What? You didn’t hurt before the collision and now you hurt. Your doctor has diagnosed a whiplash injury and has referred you to therapy. You are spending a bunch of money on the prescribed therapy. You have been told to take some time off of work to assist with your recovery. The insurance adjuster specifically agrees and acknowledges that you were injured. But your claim for fair compensation is outright denied. Does this sound just a little bit wrong? The only way to beat the Low Velocity Impact policy and achieve justice, to achieve fair compensation for your losses, is to pursue a lawsuit. The insurance adjuster might lie to you and say that nine out of 10 of those lawsuits are thrown out of court. Don’t believe it. A judge is likely to believe the truth just like the insurance adjuster does. They want you to just give up and go away. In fact, many of these cases settle before ever getting to court. This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice specifically pertaining to your case. Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna.

Capital News Thursday, November 3, 2011 B7



To help point out the differences between the field of 13 candidates seeking a seat at the District of West Kelowna council table in the Nov. 19 municipal election, the Capital News asked each candidate to give a 50-word answer to four questions. The questions: #1—What would you do to improve the economic development cooperation between Westbank First Nation and the District of West Kelowna? #2—What improvements would you advocate regarding transit and roads in West Kelowna? #3—What can the district do to improve the poverty situation in West Kelowna? #4—What can the district council do to encourage more commercial and industrial growth in West Kelowna? One candidate, Mike Smith, did not respond to the questions by our press deadline.



#1: One needs only to drive down Highway 97 to see that WFN has focused on retail and commercial development over the past few years. The opportunities for DWK lie in focusing on excellent industrial and tourism-based development. By complimenting each other’s strengths and working together, we can offer the whole package in our area. #2: It’s difficult to justify improvements in transit when 85 per cent of 2010 survey respondents said they don’t ever use the system. As for roads, council should do the following: • Consult with and implement recommendations from the engineering department regarding road issues that impact public safety. • Ensure collector routes are designed and built with consideration of future development. #3: Council should do

the following: • Encourage private sector employment by implementing policies from the economic enhancement plan. • Actively seek out nonprofit organizations that provide social services and encourage them to locate here. • Encourage low-cost housing proposals from the development community and fast-track their implementation. #4: The entrepreneurial spirit is very strong in the district and council must encourage growth by addressing the following concerns: • Reduce the cost of local government by improving efficiency. • Increase local government’s awareness of small business. • Reduce the bureaucratic burden on businesses and developers.

such methods as joint council meetings to explore opportunities of mutual benefit and partnership. #2: Increase transit service frequencies across the district to levels now seen in Glenrosa. Continue with bus stop upgrades such as shelters and benches. Move forward with road and sidewalk upgrades, as finances allow. #3: Support balanced economic development and investment that generate jobs in West Kelowna. Higher density residential development, where appropriate, would help ensure a supply of more affordable housing. Work with other levels of government to support social programs that bring support and help the vulnerable members of society. #4: Work with district staff to ensure that the development application and approval process is streamlined and efficient.

Initiate a process of ongoing dialogue with the local business community through organizations such as the local chamber of commerce. Ensure that the district’s development charges are as low as possible to attract and support growth.

have regular 15 minute service to Kelowna. #3: Give the food bank whatever help (the district) can with no property taxes and a generous annual grant in aid. Facilitate investment and job creation with a “we are open for business” attitude. Create a Housing Trust Fund for affordable housing to empower volunteers to participate and help address the need. Partner with WFN. #4: Become a competitive jurisdiction that attracts investment. Streamline the approval process. Establish firm timelines to advance applications. When businesses or residents come to the counter, treat them like a customer. End the endless bureaucratic procedure. Create a development services department. Implement “Investment Zones” downtown and in the industrial park.

council should honour the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed by Mayor Doug Findlater and Chief Robert Louie. We must start there in good faith that we can work together on all the issues that are common to both WFN and the district. Regular ongoing meetings need to be scheduled and adhered to. It is imperative that all issues need to be brought to the table by both parties and quickly resolved before they become insurmountable. #2: Transit for our entire region should be reviewed and improved. Having to wait for an inordinate amount of time to connect with another bus makes the service impractical. If riders can’t count on timely connections then people will not utilize it. Existing roads should be continually upgraded to current standards in the district as our budget allows. Adequate roads that will accom-

modate increased traffic flows should be built first in those areas that are considered for new development. #3: The district could provide a grant in aid to a registered society willing to set up a shelter, similar to the Gospel Mission (in Kelowna). Local churches and service clubs may be willing to help fund the operating costs. Council should initiate an open discussion on this important topic. #4: Controlled economic development is the key pillar in my platform. I believe this is crucial over the next three years as we move towards self sufficiency. The first step is to relocate our DWK administration and council back to Westbank, the economic heart of our community. Vacant buildings can be leased in the interim until we have the financial resources to build a new civic centre.


#1: Encourage ongoing dialogue through


#1: Start by living up to the Memorandum of Understanding with WFN based upon mutual respect, honour and recognition by not negotiating through the press. Enter into joint venture projects between WFN and the district in order to secure our own Crown lands. Same as Peachland with Ponderosa Golf. #2: We can’t afford everything at the same time, but Boucherie, Glenrosa and Shannon Lake Roads must be a priority for pedestrian safety. No more sidewalks to nowhere. A Park & Ride should be implemented where you can park and

West Kelowna council candidates address various issues Candidates from B7 Secondly, we need to attract businesses to downtown that will meet the criteria for the goals determined by the Westbank Centre Community Consultation Committee.


#1: To improve the economic development cooperation between Westbank First Nation and the District of West Kelowna: • Use the existing economic development Memorandum of Understanding with WFN • Continue to direct our new business develop-

ment officer, new land agent and DWK staff to work with WFN #2: Transit: Implement Rapid Bus BC, frequent, high speed, minimal stop, Westbank Centre/UBCO in conjunction with improvements/ streamlining to the neighbourhood feeder system. Roads: Based on Master Transportation Plan, using Road Rehabilitation Program with Road, Developer Cost Contribution Program, upgrade the urban roads to urban standards and the designated rural roads to true rural standards. #3: Generate more legal secondary suites to

provide more affordable housing for the secondary suite occupant and the home owner. Encourage the province to expand/ enhance and DWK to expand programs for at-risk youth through our Westside Youth Centre. #4: Replace couplet with pedestrian friendly downtown Main Street and two-way Dobbin. Build urgent care centre, and a city hall. Encourage mixed-use commercial/ residential development. Implement program of reduced DCCs for Westbank development and reduced business taxes for new or expanded businesses. Thereby, generate

a critical mass of people/ businesses. Support Mission Hill Winery expansion.


#1: Support a close working relationship between the District of West Kelowna’s business development officer and the Westbank First Nation’s economic development office. Continue to work together in support of Westside tourism activities and the Visitor Information Centre. Establish a cooperative relationship in the best economic interests of both communities. #2: Continue to invest in improvements to district roads, including the addition of sidewalks and bike paths. Support the extension of the Highway 97 Rapid Bus to the Westbank Centre, providing fast and direct connections through West Kelowna and Kelowna on route to UBCO. #3: Focus on economic development efforts, which can lead to more local jobs. The district’s more permissive secondary suite bylaw should encourage a greater supply of affordable rental housing. The district can continue to approve the property tax exemption for the Westside Community Food bank. #4: Respond quick-

ly and efficiently to inquiries from interested businesses. Focus on implementing the Westbank Centre Revitalization plan. Promote advantages of West Kelowna’s well situated industrial area. Communicate with and involve key stakeholders (commercial real estate agents, landowners, business owners, Urban Development Institute, Chamber of Commerce and others).


#1: We have established a template for economic development cooperation with WFN over several years with our joint work on tourism services and this partnership continues today. I will build on this work and expand to other economic development initiatives. Business development staff from both governments work closely together. #2: BC Transit is completing a full review of all routes in the district, to be completed by December, 2011. I want to see Bus Rapid transit to Westbank, with service to the airport and UBCO and maximum possible local coverage of our neighbourhoods, within the constraints of affordability. #3: People need jobs and access to affordable

housing and we can support the strongest possible local economy by making sure we encourage investment in our community. Development of rental housing is important and we can look at things like zoned development cost charges to help create the conditions for success. #4: West Kelowna has a good base of light industry but we can do better. We have already lowered tax rates to be competitive with other local governments. A number of new businesses have been started in recent years. An industrial land strategy is in process and I will make sure this is completed and implemented.


#1: I will leverage my fresh perspective on council to help foster a climate of trust and cooperation with the people of Westbank First Nation. I will support a joint economic development committee with a mandate to identify joint development and investment opportunities, and to champion effective and transparent communication. #2: I will insist on prioritizing safer roads. Pedestrian paths, sidewalks and bike lanes must be expanded and improved, especially around schools, parks and community amenities. Transit routes and schedules need to be revamped to better address local considerations and needs. I support a centralized transit exchange, Park and Ride and express bus routes. #3: Attracting new business and investment in order to create sustainable career employment is crucial. Training and mentorship are fundamental ingredients. Education creates employability and a strong workforce—both key factors for businesses when deciding where to locate. The district should also improve and encourage interagency cooperation. #4: Our current processes are slow and complex, discouraging sustainable businesses and developments. We need to attract the right kinds of sustainable business and investment, but we must do this with a sense of urgency and an open mind. Council must scrutinize and revise processes so that new business is encouraged and accelerated when appropriate.


#1: I believe that right now there is a strain between our two communities and that needs to be rectified. We need to build and develop a trusting relationship that supports our families, but honours our individuality as separate communities. We are neighbours and we need to work together for the betterment of all our people. We need to work together, to support each other and we need to be able to talk about our wants, our needs and our concerns for our individual communities that share this amazing topography. #2: The roads and sidewalks around our community schools need to be a focus. Children need to develop independence, but parents have a strong concern about the lack of sidewalks and the speed of vehicle’s around the school’s. Due to poor transit scheduling, people are more likely to take a car or be driven by a family member to activities or shopping than hop on a bus. We want to be a sustainable community. #3: We need councillors, support workers and the resources to help improve the lives of people living in poverty. We need to be able to encourage and support families and seniors, and give them opportunities to succeed. Without the resources, we don’t have the availability to help people end their cycle of poverty. We need a resource centre that helps lift up people in our community who are struggling. #4: I believe we can support developers and entrepreneurs to reach their dreams of building success by providing learning opportunities and support within our commercial areas. The OCP consultation exercise created a very good document from which to shape our future. Individuals clearly came out with the desire to move forward with the creation of several commercial centres that support the growth of neighbourhoods and a community that is accessible by more than just vehicles.

More than 150 kids made their way to the Webber Road Community Centre on Saturday to celebrate Halloween a little early. The West Kelowna Family Halloween Howl was a major success, said Christy Stuanton, community recreation coordinator with the District of West Kelowna. Staunton credited the event’s success to assistance from volunteers. “All of the volunteers are from the Mount Boucherie Secondary School. They help every year to run the event. The Lioness Club do the goodie bags for the event. This year they paid a dollar towards every admission so that the parents only had to pay $2 instead of $3.”

Council hopefuls offer their insights on local issues Candidates from B8 plans. We should then look for opportunities that we can partner on, that will benefit both communities. For example the Urgent Health Care Centre, or combine resources to establish a YMCA/ YWCA. #2: The Master Transportation Study advocates the development of a connective, more responsive transit structure and routes to move people to destinations across to Kelowna. Students’ usage issues, both secondary and post secondary, needs attention and action. The biggest challenge with roads, is speeding. We need more traffic calming. Improved roads increase speeding issues. #3: Review the delivery of social services. Identify issues and define areas that are under municipal jurisdiction, then prioritize and implement short-term solutions, using existing effective outreach programs that are in place with local churches and charities. Thereafter establish medium and longer-term strategies. #4:The district council should be actively seeking out knowledgebased businesses in Canada, U.S., Europe and Asia that are looking to expand/relocate. Find out what businesses are looking for. Market the benefits of our area: The proximity to UBCO, Okanagan University College and our international airport.


#1: The District of West Kelowna’s relationship with Westbank First Nation must not be a

matter of “us and them.” Open and frank dialogue will help develop a more cohesive approach to economic development. One way is through continuation of our council-tocouncil discussions. #2: Public transit is very expensive and heavily subsidized. Scheduling changes are not made easily. A major improvement could come with Rapid Bus, providing express service from Westbank Centre to UBCO. A close look at its success, or lack thereof, will help determine what connection adjustments are needed. The municipality’s Transportation Master Plan will classify roads and set construction standards for each type. We must then approve a capital expenditure program to implement elements of the plan. My priorities include Boucherie Road and the intersection of McIver and Glenrosa Roads. #3: “Poverty” is a complex social issue for which there are no oneparagraph solutions, especially for local governments, which have limited resources and tools. A collaborative effort with agencies involved directly with problems faced by low-income residents could provide the municipality with an action plan. #4: We have adopted an Economic Development Strategy and hired a business development officer to pursue its goals, which include increasing local job opportunities and expanding the commercial tax base. Progress will be monitored closely during 2012 and we will also develop a land acquisition strategy that may

increase the municipality’s inventory of industrial-commercial property.


#1: Working with WFN is a part of our economic development strategy and strategic plan. The business development officers have worked on tourism initiatives. This year we had another successful Community in Bloom program winning national awards. Personally, I relish more interactions, such as building a Gateway Centre together. #2: Council has approved the roads classification, a necessary task before developing more detailed plans, and each year we have scheduled road rehabilitation. We need a new governance system for transit, and a better image. It is the future if we truly believe in the Climate Charter that we signed. #3: We need jobs for people who can work, such as construction on the major expansion at the Mission Hill Winery, with more projects to come. Council could consider providing a directory of appropriate federal and provincial programs and provide opportunities for all to enjoy a better quality of life. #4: Our 14 master plans, upon implementation will make West Kelowna a more desirable place to live, work and play. A policy for acquiring land for industrial and commercial use, a new zoning bylaw, as well as support for the creation of a business improvement area will provide certainty for businesses.

Grand opening for shopping centre Westbank First Nation and Anthem Properties Group Ltd. will celebate the formal opening for Phase 1 of the Snyatan Shopping Centre on Wednesday, Nov. 16. Snyatan, which means gathering place in the Sylix language, is located at Butt Road and Highway 97, a 93,000 square-foot retail centre that includes Winners, Future Shop, Dollar Tree, Bulk Barn, Second Cup and Peace Hills Trust. At the ceremony to mark the occasion, starting at 5:30 p.m., an original work of art by Virgil “Smoker” Marchand, a renowned sculptor and a member of the Confeder-

ated Tribes of the Colville Indian Reservation, will also be unveiled. Marchand’s sculpture for Snyatan is a 13foot high representation of a horse and rider at ease. The rider holds a shield that identifies him as a member of Westbank First Nation. Eric Carlson, CEO of Anthem Properties, said his company is excited to partner with WFN on this project. “We are really pleased with the end product… This is the third retail project on WFN lands that we have developed and look forward to many years of continued good business in the area.”

Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program is a great incentive for consumers looking to save on their next vehicle while responsibly recycling their old one. Since the program was first offered in 2009, Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program has retired more than 50,000 old vehicles. And now, in an effort to recycle even more, the program has been expanded to include 2005-model-year-or-older vehicles. So even more people can receive between $500 and $3000* in incentives towards purchasing or leasing our smartest, safest, and fuel-efficient Ford vehicles. Like the Focus, Fusion, and F-150. Even the award-winning Fiesta and Edge. Our goal is to replace as many older vehicles still on the road today with more fuel-efficient, lower-emission Ford cars, CUVs, SUVs, and trucks. And you can help. If it’s time to recycle your ride, just visit any Ford Store across the country. But hurry, because Recycle Your Ride is only back for a limited time.
