JULIA HARGREAVES is using her art to draw attention to efforts to protect Canada’s Boreal Forest. Her work will be part of an exhibit being assembled for the Smithsonian Institutional National Museum of Natural History in 2014.


Artist helps effort to save Boreal Forest STAFF REPORTER

Last week as 70 environmental scientists joined a bid to protect 43,000-square-kilometres of the Boreal Forest in Manitoba and Ontario, West Kelowna artist Julia Hargreaves sat hunched over the acrylic paints in her basement, painstakingly working on her own measure of the conservation effort.

Hargreaves is one of a small group of handpicked artists, scientists and First Nations representatives assembling an exhibit for the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History on this critical northern environment. With an eye to protecting Canada’s portion of the forest—known as the largest terrestrial ecosystem in the world—the group will stage its exhibit three years from now, in

2014, using research assembled this past summer around the Bloodvein River, flowing from northwestern Ontario to Lake Winnipeg. “Being there was the most spiritual, wonderful experience,” said Hargreaves, a British immigrant who settled in Kelowna a decade ago in hopes of furthering an environmental art career. The group she travelled with, the Wilder-

ness River Expedition Art Foundation, was on its 14th art and natural history venture, having chosen to concentrate on this specific area because it is the largest contiguous block of forest remaining in the world. It launched canoes from Red Lake, in Woodland Caribou Wilderness Park, but quickly turned back from the first attempt as Ontario’s now infamous summer of forest fires

began to swallow their plans. “It was kind of like being a part of the landscape; you didn’t know what (the fire) looked like. So that was very scary,” said Hargreaves. But it also proved a perfect learning opportunity and a window into the reasons scientists from around the world are adSee Artist A8

A jury started deliberating Monday afternoon whether Neil Snelson raped and killed a teenager 18 years ago, or if he just had the misfortune of anonymous sex with a girl who met a tragic end. Defence lawyer Grant Gray was the first to offer closing arguments in the final moments of Snelson’s murder trial, which brought a standing room only crowd to the Kelowna courthouse. Over the course of 30 minutes, Gray told jurors to focus on what he called, a “lack of evidence” of anything other than sex, rather than the murder narrative Crown counsel pieced together over the three-week trial. “When you consider the evidence and what Crown considers suspicious…it’s all consistent with a man who thinks, ‘What if it was Jennifer Cusworth I had sex with?’” said Gray. “And a man who is afraid that police and Crown would jump to the conclusion that if he had sex with her, maybe he killed her.” That is the conclusion investigators pursued in 2009 when Snelson’s DNA was matched to a semen sample recovered from Cusworth shortly after Oct. 17, 1993, when her body was discovered face-down in a ditch on Swamp Road. She had been strangled, but ultimately died from multiple blows to the head. Although Snelson now concedes he must have had sex with Cusworth, he claims he didn’t know it was her until recently. In fact, he didn’t remember anything about her, other than their encounter was consensual at the Richter Street party where she was last seen. He testified last week that he went home following their fling, after dropping off some friends, and never really thought of it, or her, again. Memory gaps about details that seem quite crystallized to other witnesses, have opened the 44-year-old to be portrayed as a liar, but Gray said that’s far from the case. “He couldn’t remember more,” he said, explaining it was reasonable to not know much of a “fleeting encounter” 16 years earlier.

Mother wants Art gallery tour for the visually impaired to find her missing son ▼ FEELING ART



Five years after Aaron Derbyshire went missing from a Kelowna nightclub, his friends and family continue to look for the answers that will offer peace of mind. “We know he’s not coming back now,” said Aaron’s mother Glenda, Friday, at a press conference where 19 family members gathered to issue a public plea for information. “But we don’t have a death certificate and we haven’t had a memorial service. I know people out there know what has happened and where Aaron is. Help us start some healing.” Aaron, 22, was last seen on Sept. 30, 2006 at around 1:40 a.m. by his friends at Splashes, which is now called Level. His friends left the Lawrence Avenue nightclub to watch a fight, DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR while he stayed inside. GLENDA Derbyshire When the group went holds up a poster asking home, Derbyshire wasn’t for information as to the with them. Several days later, whereabouts of her when Aaron’s family was missing son. gathering for a rafting trip, his out-of-character absence prompted a missing person’s report. Five years, and 300 tips and countless witness interviews later, he’s yet to be seen. The investigation into his disappearance has continued to come up short, and his mother Glenda hopes their plea will find its way to those who have an idea of what may have happened five years ago. “What’s most tragic is not knowing where he is,” Glenda said. See Missing A4

Most go to art galleries to look at the art. Many take only a few minutes to walk through, quickly glancing at each piece while their feet are constantly in motion. Some stop to stare at paintings for a bit longer. Few will spend time attempting to truly connect with the work of art. Even fewer will use any of their senses other than sight. But Ruth Bieber is attempting to focus attention on the fact that there is a whole other world in the way art can be experienced. Bieber, who has had limited vision since she was six years-old, approached the Kelowna Art Gallery after being introduced to a unique program while she was living in New York. “When I went to New York, I had a bit of an opening in my life and was able to explore art for myself as an artist. At that point I met people from the program: Art Beyond Sight. They have a model where they invite gallery staff to become trained in helping people who are visually impaired experience the art. That’s what we brought here,” said Bieber. Last Saturday, a group of blind and sight impaired individuals took part in Art Insight: From

tour for people who are blind or sight impaired. Lechelt has 15 per cent of his vision remaining. “This painting is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen,” he said. the Mind’s Eye, an event spawned by Bieber and hosted by the Kelowna Art Gallery. The art tour gave participants in-depth descriptions of various paintings in the gallery. Texture samples were provided for some of the works so that the visually impaired could better understand what the paintings felt like. Bieber said that her own love for art started at an early age. “I’ve always been interested in art. Before I lost my sight,

I could enjoy it in the normal kind of way. I was quite good at art so that seed was already planted when I could see. As I grew and my vision deteriorated, the love of art didn’t fade. “What that led to initially was an exploration of art as therapy. In my graduate studies degree I learned about the therapeutic value of all of the arts.” Bieber always had a natural interest in the contextual issues of art. She said that this fur-

ther understanding of art is sometimes even more understood by the visually impaired. “Sometimes we can’t always feel the art with our fingers, but we can feel the art from an emotional perspective as the gallery staff explains and describes the art to us. “Beyond that, we’re very interested in the artist. It’s lovely to meet the artist and to learn about the artist’s process, as well as what kind of art he does.” Bieber said that the

sight impaired constantly utilize their imagination when trying to connect with art. The false assumption that sight is required to enjoy art isn’t only made by people who can see, according to Bieber. “It’s not just the general public who often feel that people who are sight impaired can’t appreciate art, but many people who are blind believe that about themselves as well. That’s why it’s wonderful to not just educate the gallery staff and the general public, but the visually impaired as well.” Renee Burgess, head of public programming at the Kelowna Art Gallery, said that this is the third event that the gallery has run for the visually impaired. “We try as hard as we can to be accessible to everyone. That means reaching beyond our boundaries and working with visually impaired,” said Burgess. Burgess said that Bieber’s efforts have been greatly appreciated by the gallery. “Ruth was really the driving force. She came to myself and the director and promoted this project. We brought in a woman to train us on how to talk about art with the visually impaired.” Bieber is currently planning to open an exhibit at the gallery in the fall of 2012, which will feature the works of blind artists.

City forgives loan to Sunshine Theatre Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna is forgiving a $50,000 loan it made to a now defunct local theatre group six years ago. Sunshine Theatre, which ceased operations in the spring after struggling to survive in the wake of the latest round of arts program funding cuts by the province, borrowed the money following changes to provincial and federal grants, as well

Robert Hobson as declining audiences and deteriorating finances. In the six years that it

had the loan from the city, the theatre group, run by volunteers, only paid back $300. City cultural services manager Sandra Kochan said in order for the theatre society’s volunteer board of directors to legally wrap up Sunshine’s Theatre Society’s operation, it had to have all debts addressed . Coun. Robert Hobson said he was sad to see Sunshine fold its tent, crediting the volunteers behind

it a lot of hard work over the years. “I have not seen a more dedicated group of volunteers over the 20-30 years of Sunshine’s existence,” he said. “(Sunshine Theatre) will be missed.” But he said he believed the people behind the theatre group would turn their volunteer efforts to other areas in the community and that would be a benefit for the community.

Sunshine started in 1977 as a summer theatre company and evolved in the 1990s into a professional company receiving substantial operating support from the Canada Council For the Arts, the B.C. Arts Council and professional grants from the city via the Kelowna Arts Foundation. The city plans to cover the “bad debt” with money from its arts development reserve.

Crown, defence lawyers make final arguments Snelson from A1 Snelson went home to his then wife, said Gray, and what caused Cusworth’s death happened later, at the hands of someone else. Gray wanted jurors to believe that Snelson should be cleared because Cusworth lived 12 hours after the party— a possible scenario, testified pathologists— stretching out her night of drinking. Crown counsel Iain Currie, however, spent 2.5 hours telling a different story. Not only is it unlikely that the studious Okanagan College student would have dropped out of her life and shirked her responsibilities to keep partying, the evidence points to another scenario. “One person in the entire world who had a motive to kill Jennifer Cuswoth,” he said. “That person is Neil George Snelson and that motive is sex.” Cusworth, said Currie, ended her night at around 4 a.m., which was when all 12 party-goers who testified they last saw her. She was headed to her friends’ place on Bernard Avenue, and at around 4:30 a.m., she was taken off course. One woman testified she heard hysterical screams “after the bar crowd” and another entered a statement that corroborated that account. Currie said it makes sense that it was Cusworth who was screaming and Snelson was the cause. Cusworth, he argued, never had sex with Snelson at the party.

Numerous friends and witnesses attested to her whereabouts throughout the night and, he argued, she was never absent for long, or seen with the accused. He would have had sex with Cusworth, he said, shortly before she died and her body told the story.

A high volume of seminal fluid stayed with Cusworth when she was found in the ditch. Generally, pathologists testified, it takes 20 to 25 minutes for that fluid to drain from a woman’s body after it’s been deposited. “(She) had it in her vagina at the time she died,” Currie said, noting that

to do avoid gravity, she would have had to stay still, on her back. “The only rational conclusion is that Jennifer Cusworth was not upright for long after intercourse.” The semen still inside her, he said, provides the link in time to sex and murder. The jury started its deliberations at around

Avoiding Knee Surgery


ave you been told that you need to have knee surgery or your knees replaced? Are you reluctant to get surgery but you don’t know what else to do? Being cautious is always a good approach, especially with your health. If you want safe and effective alternatives to knee surgery I can help. If you are considering knee surgery you are not alone. According to Stats Canada in 2006 to 2007 38,400 knee replacement operations were performed. While fairly common, knee surgery is not a straight forward solution to knee pain. Here are eight problems with knee surgery.

ne: wait times can be many months to many years, and waiting for relief is not a good plan. Two: operating on the meniscus, a shock absorber inside the knee, speeds up arthritic degeneration of the knee. Three: you can’t stop at just one… Knee replacements usually last for ten years; then you will need another. Each knee replacement takes away another section of your leg bones, and you only have so much. So delaying your first knee replacement helps you to avoid being wheelchair bound in later life. Four: surgically replacing a knee joint will not solve the pain from all the connective tissue around the joint. You will still have to solve the problem of healing all the ligaments around the knee that were originally injured or stretched in knee surgery. Five: some surgeons fail to align the leg length in knee surgery. This leads to unequal leg lengths and can contribute to back and neck pain in the future. Six: with all the infections going around our hospitals today avoiding surgery will help you avoid complications from infection. Seven: the normal recovery time from knee surgery is many months. Avoiding surgery means avoiding this off time. Eight: reactions to general anesthetic. The general anesthetic used in knee replacement surgery has a number of risks associated with it. Avoiding surgery means you will avoid those potential complications. I have effective knee pain treatments that will allow you to avoid knee surgery. I offer Prolotherapy and Prolozone treatments which are non surgical medical procedures that effectively stimulate the regeneration of cartilage, ligaments, and other connective tissues in and around a knee.

Smithsonian drawn to conservation effort Artist from A1

Dr Sharnell Mui


Snoring isn’t healthy or normal , however, it is very common and contrary to popular belief, snoring isn’t always simply a bad habit that a person can be trained to give up. In 80-90% of cases, snoring occurs when the muscles of the throat relax during sleep and narrow the air passage in the back of our nose and throat. Aside from being a nuisance, snoring may also be a warning sign of a much more serious medical disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). This occurs when tissue blocks the airway completely and individuals literally cannot breathe while sleeping. They must wake brieÁy, many times an hour, to gulp for air. Because it occurs while they are asleep, most people with OSA are completely unaware that they have the condition. However they may suffer the consequences of the struggle to maintain nighttime breathing such as: • Irregular heartbeats • Cardiovascular disease • High blood pressure • Fatigue & Daytime Sleepiness

“The Smithsonian realizes the importance of keeping this ecosystem intact,” said Hargreaves. “We’re talking about conservation for animals, for people and the climate.” Hargreaves was recruited for the exhibition off a juried website called Artists for Conservation because she could document the plight of one particularly threatened species. “They wanted to get these certain migratory songbirds,” she explained. “When they go south, their habitat is being destroyed and it has started to affect the population.” Hargreaves’ work resembles famous Canadian artist Robert Bateman for its detail.

Where forest fires will occur naturally and simply skim the surface of the forest floor, development and forestry destroy the Sphagnum moss, or reindeer lichen, which ensures caribou can continue to follow their migration path to the Northern Shield. It is food. Perhaps even more important, the peat bottom of the forest is thought to contain up to 22 per cent of the world’s carbon, according to reports generated by the Seattle-based International Boreal Conservation Campaign. Should the forest floor dry up, it could have dastardly consequences for the atmosphere.

She now works fulltime on her artwork, but has only done so in the last six years. Both she and her husband, a dry cleaner by trade, immigrated to Canada in order that Hargreaves might be closer to the environment and animals she loves to paint.

According to airport director, Sam Samaddar, to ensure the airport remains financially viable, council approved the increases Monday. Vehicle parking at the airport will go up to $1.25 per hour from $1 per hour on April 1, 2012, and to $1.50 per hour by April 1, 2013. The first 15 minutes will continue to be free in the short- and long-term lots. “The airport operates on a financially self-sufficient basis,” said Samaddar. “With increased costs for building and grounds maintenance, security, snow removal, as well as higher labour, utility and fuel costs—these increases are needed.” Airport tenants and airlines will also see a five per cent increases on Jan. 1, 2012, and Jan. 1, 2013, for aircraft landing, terminal and aircraft parking fees. Airport advertising rates will increase five per cent Jan. 1, 2012, and 2013, while taxi and limo fees will increase by five per cent a year over a fiveyear span starting in 2012.

The pendulum is swinging in employees’ favour again O

ne of the areas of employment law which remains least predictable is the enforceability of post-employment restrictive covenants. A recent decision of the Alberta Court of Appeal represents another pendulum swing in favour of employees’ interests. The element in question is whether a restrictive covenant can be enforceable after the employee has been wrongfully dismissed by the employer. This question attracts periodic attention and my thinking is that even most employment lawyers and judges aren’t certain of the answer. The issue arises out of the general law of contract but must be answered in the specific context of employment contracts. All employees have an employment contract, whether they know it or not and regardless of whether the terms have been put in writing. One of the terms of those contracts is the em-


Robert Smithson ployer’s obligation to provide working notice of termination (or the equivalent pay in lieu thereof). This obligation may not have been put in writing, in which case the common law of employment imposes the obligation to provide “reasonable” working notice. A written contract may, on the other hand, contain a term which expressly defines the employees’ working notice entitlement. Either way, the employer’s failure to comply with its contractual obligation to provide working notice (or pay in lieu) is what is referred to as a “wrongful dismissal.” It is a fundamental breach of the contractual terms of employment and brings the employment relationship to an end.

When employers have imposed restrictive covenants (such as for noncompetition or non-solicitation of clients) on an employee, those restrictions are intended to apply for a period of time after the cessation of the employment relationship. So, what happens to the covenants when the employer wrongfully dismisses the employee and, thereby, breaches the contract? Some lawyers and judges feel that the employer’s breach of the contract doesn’t undermine the enforceability of the covenants—even though he or she has been wrongfully dismissed, the post-employment covenants still apply. Others would say that the employer’s breach of the contract means the employee should not be bound by the covenants. The Alberta Court of Appeal has thrown its weight (albeit in a divided sense) between the latter view. In a case involving a foreign exchange trader, MacLean, who was fired

on its failure to give notice or damages in lieu of notice by enforcing prospective obligations” against the former employee. It went on to state that there “are valid reasons for excusing a wrongfully dismissed employee from compliance with restrictive covenants. To hold otherwise would reward

employers for mistreating their employees.” So, in Alberta at least, employees who wish to escape the impact of onerous restrictive covenants can always hope to be wrongfully dismissed. It seems likely the Supreme Court of Canada will be asked to weigh in on this topic in the not-

too-distant future.

by Globex Foreign Exchange Corporation, the court split on this question but sided with the employee. MacLean had agreed to a restrictive covenant when he was hired in 2003. Two years later, he was fired. He went to work for a competitor of Globex after the termination. Globex sued MacLean to enforce the nonsolicitation and non-competition clauses in his employment contract. The court rejected the action, in part because Globex had wrongfully dismissed him and, as such, could not continue to rely on the employment contract. The court found that (even in a case such as this in which the covenants seemed to contemplate the possibility of a wrongful dismissal) the former employee is relieved from the obligation to comply with the covenant. The court stated that an “employer that wrongfully terminates a contract of employment should not be able to capitalize

Smokers eyed as tax target


.C. Health Minister Mike de Jong was floating another taxation trial balloon last week, a suggestion to place a Medical Services Plan surchage on a pack of cigarettes. While de Jong acknowledged that smokers will likely be upset to be singled out, he added that “we want them to be upset because they are engaged in a behaviour that is costing the rest of society billions of dollars.” The need to consider this option comes from the reality

that we as a society are already taxed to death, while health care costs continue to spiral upwards. Smokers are in de Jong’s firing line here because it’s good politics to beat up on smokers. It’s a nasty habit and while we may lack the research to pinpoint the number exactly, it’s fair to say it’s one of many burdens on our current health care system. But this idea smacks similar to the government’s previous idea to add another gas surtax to pay for expansion of the

transit line in the Lower Mainland. In effect, Victoria was saying you have no other option but to use your car, and we are going to blame you for that. That didn’t wash with drivers, but the hit on smokers may appear to be an easier target. But the reality is our health care costs are not spiraling out of control just because of smokers. There are a myriad of other issues that the politicians don’t want to address head-on because they are not safe political options. How about adding

a surcharge on the sale of fast food. How about doing more to educate both youth and adults about obesity, that a pop, chips and corn dog doesn’t constitute a healthy meal. How about reinvigorating our health care system to be pro-active rather than reactive to health care issues. Smokers are just an easy target. If smoking is so bad, why don’t we just ban it outright? As with many of these health care issues, just follow the money and you usually find the answers.

Here, civic elections are open to Sure, the odd group may get toanyone with $100 to put down as a gether and announce it’s supporting a deposit and 25 friends willing to sign candidate or four, but that’s not a slate, the nomination papers. it’s just a group’s preference. And it seems there are plenty of A slate requires, at minimum, that people who think they fit that bill in the candidates in question know they Kelowna this year.

Yesterday, on the eve of the 10day official nomination period for the Nov. 19 election, 56 people were considering a run for the eight councillor positions and 11 were interested enough in being mayor that they picked up nomination packages. Now, if history holds true, 10 to 12 of those paper-pickers will not be there when it comes time to vote. But the strong interest in a run for public office can only be seen as healthy. While some may decry the number of “no names” on the list and call them pipe dreamers, I disagree. Even the most popular politicians had to start sometime. The more voices heard in the public discourse that is

a civic election, the better. Sure, some may be single-interest candidates who bring little else to the table. And the more people that run— given the traditionally low voter turnout—the fewer the votes needed to win a seat. But that’s price we pay for making our elections open to all. Municipal politicians make a difference to people’s lives. The proof is no farther away than the tap in your kitchen, the toilet in your bathroom, the garbage can at your curb or the road it sits on. The decisions they make at the council table affect your day-to-day life unlike their provincial or federal colleagues.

So rather than write off the large number of potential candidates as the hindrance or the political equivalent of white noise, consider the contribution they are making to the system we hold so dear. We may not agree with their stance on a particular issue, but at least they are getting involved. And given the pitiful turnout by voters in the last few civic elections, that a lot more than can be said for a majority of this city’s residents. Alistair Waters is the Capital News’ assistant editor.

A Gift in Memory Kelowna is for old people, keep it that way Makes a Difference not agree with the reasoning behind this. Kelowna is basically a small town with an aging retired population and a service-driven economy to support them. There is no need to keep young people here at all, only if you consider what you

have to offer them are $8 to $9 an hour jobs in the service industry out here. The main reason I guess for the need to attract young people would be so that they can work for the local entrepreneurial people out here at minimum wage, to make them

“a whole lot of money.” What we need here in Kelowna is a willingness to see this town for what it is, a place for retired people, not some silicon vineyard, which has been promoted out here again and again in the local paper.

I hope that you do not take offense at the statements I have made above, but I simply think it is time that we stop trying to make this valley into something that it is not. Tom Bracken, Kelowna

Comments from the Web on ‘chemtrails’ To the editor: Re: Vapour Trails have Kelowna Man Seeing a Conspiracy, Sept. 30 Capital News. Interesting that our government calls concerned citizens conspiracy theorists, and yet when asked, our government refuses to give answers as to what is being sprayed on us! Most people are also not aware that normal aircraft trails dissipate in a few minutes. Mr. Latour is 100 per cent correct in being concerned. Why doesn’t our government or air traffic people know what is flying and spraying in our airspace? This is a conspiracy, not a theory. Steven Jones To the editor: This is an interesting controversy. People may remember that a few days after 9/11 the skies were clear of clouds because of the ban on civilian flights and that the weather remained near perfect for that time. A friend and I made an interesting observation yesterday morning as we were fishing. We noted a plane coming up from the south east leaving a contrail behind it, when suddenly it veered towards the north west, at almost a 45 degree angle from its original approach. I just have assumed over the past years that most of those flights have been passenger jets because of the altitude. I never really thought about military jets doing the same thing. However, the significant number of contrails in the air, although they might not have any spray residue in them, certainly changes the sky from a bright sunny day to almost overcast.


There are a number of YouTube videos that show flights over North America and Europe at any one time and these give a mind-boggling illustration of just how much pollution is being put in the air by both civilian and military flights. It would be nice if we could have two, perhaps three days a week, being designated as “no fly days.” We might want to carry this a step further and designate weekends as “no drive days.” Jackal To the editor: I would really love to read a follow up investigative story about this. Shinji11 To the editor: I noticed them yesterday [Thursday, Sept. 29]. I believe it has to do with weather modification, for making it rain and/or to make the day less hot—silver iodide and other chemical compounds sprayed at high altitudes via the Bergeron Process. Perfect for increasing water table levels in areas and favorable conditions for agriculture. China’s government doesn’t even try to hide it from their people and it’s in the news.” A record 840 flights were made to increase rain last year for areas spanning 3.6 million square kilometers—or roughly one-third of China’s territory.” Demand rising for weather modification

Who really knows what else these planes are spraying. With no democratic control over such projects it’s quite scary. Besides, if it is only cloud seeding chemical compounds, what negative effect does it have on the ecosystem, our health and that of the flora and fauna? Dan Quentin To the editor: There is no doubt there is something going on more than just vapour trails, if people look up and observe it, instead of numbing themselves drinking beer or watching TV, they we will see it. I have seen it on the same day, a normal plane contrail and a not common airline route leaving these heavy trails that do not dissipate, instead they spread all around the sky, forming clouds. You can count a couple of days and the temperature drops, then starts raining. It is called geoengeneering, and I don’t think it is healthy, for they’re spraying aluminum and barium, in between other things, to control weather. It was about time the press would publish something about it! It is unfortunate that the article has to end with the mention of the government calling people conspiracy theorists just because they have open eyes and have exposed this reality by their own observation of these planes weird behaviour on our skies. And there is more—this is happening all over the world, not only here in Canada. Miriam Cunha

acy theorists and to stop asking questions. Actually, when government calls us conspiracy theorists they are half right, it is a conspiracy (look up the definition) but, it is no theory. It is very real because the U.S. military openly admits to spraying the air we breathe with these toxins in the vain hope of preventing the unpreventable—that being climate change. In truth, you would have better luck standing in a bucket and picking yourself up by the handle than to think humans can alter the natural course of the universe. These toxic concoctions eventually make their way into the water we drink and the soil from which much of our food is

produced, eventually ending up in us, causing disease, sickness and death. The public is constantly bombarded by government officials with false promises and exaggerated claims about cleaning up our environment. If that were really true, banning these high flying “toxic bombing” runs overhead would be a good place to start. From my perspective, to trust government (by not asking questions) is like trusting your teenager with a bottle of booze and the keys to your brand new sports car. It is not only everyone’s right to ask questions of our government, it is our duty as citizens to do so and hold our elected officials accountable.

So, don’t believe anything I have to say but, don’t believe what the government is telling you (or not telling you) either. Do your own due dili-

It’s to help support and make awareness of the importance for moms to breastfeed their babies.” According to Buryska, breastfeeding provides the best nutrition for babies. “We chose to do it here at the local Farmer’s Market.

Twenty-eight Kelowna mothers braved the rain to show support for breastfeeding on Saturday morning. At 11 a.m., the moms took part in the Quintessence Foundation Global Breastfeeding Challenge. Babies “latched-on” in attempt to set a world record for the most children breastfeeding at one time. “The Quintessence Foundation is an organization that supports breastfeeding moms all over

their babies locally, with breast milk. “It’s a bit of awareness to say that breastfeeding is normal and natural and that it’s a human right. “It encourages moms to get out, meet each other and celebrate that we’re doing the best we can to raise the new citizens of our city.” The latch-on event hosted babies ranging from five-days-old to twoyears-old.

ering the weather. People have varied views when it comes to public breastfeeding. Buryska hopes events like this will help educate citizens that breastfeeding is natural and should be encouraged. “I think it’s a bit of our Canadian culture that we’d like to see changed to realize, this is normal,” Buryska said. “Babies should be breastfeeding anytime, anywhere. We’ve got some ways to go to make moms feel more welcome to breastfeed in the community.” Jenn Hough, one of the participants in the breastfeeding challenge, said that she has gotten some dirty looks while breastfeeding in Kelowna. “I do get some looks, generally from the baby boomers, usually not people my age,” said Hough. Hough said that she was participating in the event in order to show her support to other families. “I’m supporting other



breastfeeding mothers and the breast feeding community because I think it’s the important health wise thing to do for both mother and child.” The event featured door prizes for participating mothers. Hough walked away with the grand prize: A breast pump worth approximately $400.

Two Okanagan MPs introduced legislation in Parlimanet on Monday that would allow consumers to legally bring home limited quantities of purchased wine from another province. Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas introduced the legislation, seconded by Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan, who originally took on the challenge locally of advocating for the change to the Intoxicating Liquors Act. “Throughout my summer listening tour I heard from consumers and wineries alike of the strong desire to see a personal exemption that would allow wineries across Canada to access our Canadian marketplace” said Albas. “For small family run wineries the ability to market Canada wide is essential and for wine lovers the freedom of choice makes for a win/win solution” The amendment should it be passed, would create a personal exemption from the Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act that would allow private citizens to either directly import, send, take or transport, or cause to be imported, sent, taken or transported, wine for personal consumption in quantities as permitted by the province in Question. “For the past several years, I have been working with the wine industry, the Chamber of Commerce and our Government to change this archaic legislation,” said Cannan. “Eliminating inter-provincial trade barriers will help to grow our wine and culinary tourism sectors, boost investment, create jobs and finally give Canadian consumers easier access to internationally award-winning Canadian wines.” If the legislation passes second reading, it will be referred to the committee stage for further review.

As a gesture of thanks to the community that supported them for so many years, the Evans have again donated a framed artist’s proof of a Robert Bateman limited edition to the Maxine DeHart—United Way, Ramada Hotel Drive-Thru Breakfast. The Evans through their gallery have been drive-thru sponsors for many years. Wayne also wishes to advise everyone that certain aspects of his expertise will be available on a limited freelance basis. Call him at 250-878-3635.

Business leaders need support An ideal wedding planner I would like to offer my thoughts today of the impending transformation that lies before us in our beloved region of British Columbia—the Okanagan Valley. As I’ve talked about in recent columns what you hear repeatedly on various news channels, our economy is undergoing a transformation driven by entrepreneurs who create opportunity for change and build new industries and services based on innovation and global perceived markets. Because today’s economy continues to speed ahead, our institutions and tri-levels of government face significant challenges. First, how can our governments lay out en enabling foundation now clearly needed by an entrepreneurial economy? And second, how can more communities in regions as the Okanagan use the blueprints for that to become entrepreneurial hotspots? My recent research has offered four general themes that I would offer you for your ponderance—finding and keep-


Joel Young ing talented people; a local culture that embraces and nurtures entrepreneurs; a healthy government-entrepreneurial atmosphere; and a focus on the unique needs of entrepreneurial ventures, particularly at start-up, or as many of my colleagues more aptly put it access to people, seed capital, information and supportive government infrastructure. I could write a small novel on the concerns and issues raised by seasoned entrepreneurs seeking quality entry-level, management and technical personnel to join their teams to launch and seek prosperity with their new ventures. Thorny challenges await in hiring entry-level workers I am told relative to competence and work attitudes for example. The question posed

in my investigation has been: Are they really ready to work? Basic skills of being courteous, displaying commitment to their new job and a willingness to excel often appear to be a shortfall. Anyone who has worked with entrepreneurs for some time becomes an expert in issues related to access to capital. For a number of years, access to financing has been a major impediment to the launch and growth of new business. But today, access to capital has been trumped by concerns over human capital, quality of life and other issues. Booming capital markets have created a perverse problem of its own. Entrepreneurs can find funding for their new ventures for the most part, but finding “smart money” from funders who can provide useful coaching and mentoring and specific industry expertise remains a challenge. The anomaly of a current boom perception is pushing, for example, venture capitalists to

make bigger deals. We are seeing fewer deals but with larger investments. I believe it is fair to say that Okanagan entrepreneurs would be unanimous in claiming difficulties in obtaining seed capital investments in the range of $ 300,000 to $3 million. Go figure. A significant issue with respect to building entrepreneurial communities, and one that actually inspired me to prepare this column, is the level of local institutional support provided to the entrepreneurial world. Cost of office space, digital infrastructure are cited by some as constraints to venture launch. The mixed opinions of local universities and colleges weighs in as an anchor in some community thought. One group told me their concern rose from a perception of failure to provide targeted continuing education and mentoring or to participate in the local business community within the entrepreneurial realm. Cross-training between engineering and business schools came into the discussion as a helpful need. And a final set of issues raised concerned the role of government levels and their relationship to the entrepreneurial channel. Most of the discussion

Government agencies can nurture an entrepreneurial community Young from A14 tended to focus on whether community leaders actually “get it.” In other words, do government bureaucratic agencies understand the unique needs and concerns of entrepreneurs? Many do, as the value in a true and vibrant partnership between government and the private sector ought to be readily viewed. Effectively targeted government programs and services are only one piece of the puzzle. Smart government agencies work to ease the creation and growth of new firms in all industry sectors. While the average citizen may simply scoff at this salutation—“I’m from government and I’m here to help”—entrepreneurs respond with downright cynicism. There is a fundamental clash between entrepreneurs and governments. Entrepreneurs move quickly, revel in decisions that may be criticized by others and take calculated risks. However, entrepreneurs do understand that governments have a role to play. They facilitate capital markets, sponsor education and training, fund technology research and build and regulate the infrastructure. So in conclusion, what makes an entrepreneurial community? First, governments

make decisions that affect entrepreneurs directly and indirectly. They craft the overall framework in which an entrepreneur functions, such as telecommunication, transportation, environmental, bankrupt-

cy, etc. Directly, governments deal with an entity on an individual level such as with licensing, safety and other required permits. We can have a few entrepreneurs shine in any community, but that

doesn’t make for an entrepreneurial community. To experience or claim that title, lots of thread must be woven together with policies that support directly entrepreneurship—people, money, technology, customers, transportation

Course helps connect seniors to required health care needs O

kanagan College is again offering a course this fall titled Connecting Seniors With Care. It will help answer many questions that families have when their elderly parents can no longer live at home. As the teacher for the course, I welcome the chance to share my knowledge and expertise in a way that will benefit your lives and reduce your stress. Most families I work with have never faced this transition of life with a loved one. As such, it is expected that you would not know what questions are pertinent to ask or simply where to begin to deal with this situation. The terminology is ever-changing and there is a barrage of options to choose from. That’s why this


Sharen Marteny course, which will be the first of a series, is a valuable resource for you. Future modules will expand on topics that are of a concern to families with elderly parents. Questions will be answered and suggestions provided to make the transition less stressful and traumatic. Families do not realize the emotional toll that life transitions have on everyone involved. There are many new phases that begin the moment you realize that a move may be needed. A senior can often expected to do more for

themselves than is physically or mentally possible. The family member responsible is often expected to know more than they actually do. Families will learn more about what to ask, if their parents will benefit mentally and physically, by moving into supportive housing. How much assistance can families expect from a supportive housing residence? Will their parents be able to get a doctor if they move to a new city? How long do they have to live in the province before the medical costs will be covered? What is the difference between having the power of attorney and having the representative agreement? Why should my parents discuss a no cardiopulmonary resuscitation form?

Who do I need to get the power of attorney from versus the no cardiopulmonary resuscitation form? When can my parents no longer sign a representative agreement and when does a committee agreement need to be in place? What things do my parents and I need to understand before we agree to have a joint bank account to assist them to pay their bills? Is the cost of the drugs used in the hospital covered when the senior goes into assisted living? Where do I go to get help when I need respite or go on a vacation? How do I ask family and friends for assistance? When am I asking too much of a neighbour? If you have asked any of the questions above in your own family situation, then you are not alone. This course will help you to find some answers to these questions. Connecting Seniors with Care (PIR:391, CRN:70128) will be held at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 9:30 a.m. to noon. The cost is $107.

Traffic Info

Prior to medical challenges arising from a disorder of the nervous system, Michelle was an avid horseback rider. Michelle’s Dream was to have a horse that she could call her own, not for riding as she once loved to do, but now to brush and look after from her wheelchair. Michelle found Lady, a ten year old mare, rescued from an unfavorable living situation. Lady also had a foal, Blossom, who wouldn’t leave her side. Lady and Blossom both gently nuzzled Michelle in her wheelchair, obviously recognizing her as a friend. Michelle was even able to try sitting on Lady! Michelle was thrilled when Sunshine purchased Lady and her foal Blossom for her to love and care for – Two new friends in one day, and a lifetime of smiles to come! Lady and Blossom are the perfect motivators for Michelle to work hard at physiotherapy, in the hopes that one day, she can be back in the saddle again, where she belongs! THANK YOU to everyone involved with the BMO Okanagan Marathon for creating magical Dream experiences for Sunshine Children like Michelle, who live with the challenges of severe physical disability or life threatening illness. Over the past 16 years, the BMO Okanagan Marathon has raised over $200,000 for the Sunshine Foundation of Canada. Let’s continue to make Dreams come true together!

A man working on his car in West Kelowna on Thursday night found himself falling prey to an attempted mugging. While working on his car in an area of Bering Road and Carrington Road at about 7 p.m., a man was approached from behind by a male suspect. The suspect put his hand on the victim’s shoulder, told him not to move and demanded his wallet. The suspect told the victim he would cut him if he didn’t obey, and produced an exacto-type knife. When the victim held up a screwdriver and said he had no money on him, the suspect turned and fled the scene on a bicycle, bound for Gellatly Road. The suspect is described as male caucasian, 20 to 25 years of age, 5-foot-7, slim, 140 lbs, light brown hair and brush cut, wearing a white tshirt and blue jeans, each looking like they had paint or rust on them. He was riding a medium sized dark mountain bike.

Potent powerplay key to a winning start for Rockets Warren Henderson

Prospera Place


On top of getting off to a quicker start than a year ago, the Kelowna Rockets were hoping to ice a more effective power play early in 2011-12. So far, so good on both counts for the WHL club which has won its first two games, and is 5-for14 with the man advantage. “I think the guys have done a pretty good job of not over passing,” Rockets head coach Ryan Huska said of the league’s thirdbest power play. “We’re shooting a lot more, the guys are playing with that mentality, and it’s working so far.” And on the subject of his club’s 2-0 start: “It’s really early, but it’s nice to get some wins in the bank right off the hop,” said Huska, whose Rockets started last season at 0-4.

7 p.m. Nov. 3 The Rockets will look to make it three wins in a row Wednesday night when the Tri-City Americans make a stop at Prospera Place. The Ams are the early pace-setters in the U.S. Division with a 3-1-0-0 mark. “They’ve got some skilled forwards, they’ve

been one of the best teams in our conference for quite a few years,” said Huska. “They play a hightempo, fast-paced style so we need to make sure we limit our turnovers.” The Rockets took care of business in their home opener Saturday night with a 6-3 win over the rival Vancouver Giants. Rookie forward Carter Rigby scored his first two goals as a Rocket— one of the highlight-reel variety—added an assist, and dropped his gloves in a second-period bout with Vancouver’s Scott Cooke. “It was a good game for Carter,” Huska said. “I thought he played well at both ends, and he stood up for a teammate which was good to see.” The Rockets will head south of the border this weekend for games in Kennewick, Wash. Friday against the Ams, and Saturday in Spokane against the Chiefs.

Sloppy mistakes must be eliminated against V.I. Raiders Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Despite a lopsided final result, the Okanagan Sun weren’t exactly the picture of perfection in Saturday’s 48-21 win over the Chilliwack Huskers. With first place on the

line and the defending

BCFC champion Vancouver Island Raiders next on the agenda, head coach Jason Casey said his Sun will need to be markedly better than the error-laden club that took to the field against the winless Huskers. “It was a sloppy game

for us on all three sides of the ball,” Casey said “Whether we played down to them, or just weren’t ready to play, it’s hard to figure out. “It was a step backwards for us, but the good thing is the mistakes we made are correctable.

“As a coaching staff we weren’t happy, but we can benefit from this and learn from it. It was just a speed bump, we’ll work hard this week and be ready for Sunday.” A pair of 55-yard interception returns for touchdowns by Chilliwack’s

Tanner Hamade off Jeremy Joseph-Mraovic were among the low-lights of the night for the Sun. A failed third- down gamble by the Sun deep in their own zone also led to a Huskers’ score, their first in 23 quarters against Okanagan.

Still, one sloppy night in Chilliwack aside, Casey believes the Sun are a much better football club—all across the board—than the one that lost to the Raiders 33-20 on Aug. 27 in Nanaimo. See Mistakes A27

B.C. high school football season opener with a victory. Dylan Hoogveld’s 85yard kick off return for a touchdown helped push the Bears to a 32-18 victory over the Rutland Voodoos Friday night in Okanagan AAA Conference action at the Apple Bowl. Godwin wasn’t the least bit surprised that the young Voodoos, who led 13-12 at the half, gave the Bears all they could handle. “They have an all-star coaching staff over there, so I knew they’d be prepared,” said Godwin. “Honestly, if not for that kick return, who knows which way the game would have gone.” Godwin said stopping the Voodoos on two fourth-down gambles was key in the first half, while a pair of fumble recoveries by Scott Vincent— forced by Teagan MacRae and linebacker Curtis Urlacher—in the second half also ended Rutland drives. If not for a couple of


big plays, the Voodoos coaching staff felt the result could have been very different. “It was a tough loss for us,” said Voodoos head coach Shane Sommerfeld. “I felt that we out played Boucherie but they found a way to win through the big play and they did a great job of taking advantage of our mistakes. “We are still not playing to our potential, but we are very close.” QB Joe Court passed for 211 yards and two touchdowns for the Bears, one each to Jarrett Young and Tomas Lammers. Court and Cam Spence scored majors along the ground. Josh Fender had 10 tackles on defense, while Peter Briker and MacRae had picks, and Brandon Hayward had a QB sack. Sam Ferguson again led Rutland’s attack with 165 yards and all three touchdowns. On defense, Christian Hopper had six tackles

another major on the ground. The 5-foot-10, 155pound senior, who plays with a never-say-die mentality, continually escaped the pressure of the Golds’ front seven, drawing the praise of head coach Roy Anderson. “Sam played well again, he had a big night for us,” said Anderson. Davies hooked up with Brook Blackmore and Eli Haynes for TD passes, while Blackmore rushed for 101 yards and scored a second major along the ground. Nathan Brown

had the other TD for the Owls who led most of the night, but had trouble shaking off the Golds. “They’re a tough and scrappy team,” Anderson said. “We’d get up and several times we thought we’d pull away, but they kept coming back and making it close.” Cole Mosychuk led the defense with eight tackles and two sacks.

Warriors ready to avenge home opening loss to Vipers The Westside Warriors will get another crack at the defending BCHL champs when the teams face off Wednesday night in Vernon. The Vipers took down the Warriors 5-2 last Friday night in Westside’s home opener at Royal LePage Place. It was the only loss in five starts for the Warriors who pushed their season mark to 4-1 Saturday night with a 5-4 overtime victory over the hometown Merritt Centennials. Max French converted a breakaway with 1:23 remaining in 3-on-3 overtime to settle the issue. f Trailing 2-0 midway through the first, Westside struck four straight goals to seemingly put the game out of reach. But a pair of goals in the final five minutes allowed the host Centennials to force overtime. Scoreless in the first extra tframe, the Cents had a great chance to win it with a penalty shot midway through the

second OT stanza. But goaltender Steve Racine held his ground against Merritt Jakob Reichert, and the game continued. A minute later, French was sent in all alone and beat Merritt’s Tyler Steel to give the Warriors the victory. Michael King was credited with two assists on the night, and logged a ton of ice time on Westside’s back end. “It was a long one,” said King. “Everyone worked really hard and it was good to get the win.” King also took on added responsibility on Saturday in the absence of Captain Izaak Berglund, who missed the matchup with a concussion suffered the night before against Vernon. Connor Dempsey, Tyler Krause, Seb Lloyd, and Shawn Hochhausen scored in regulation time for the Warriors. Steve Racine made 39 stops in the victory, after being pulled the night before against Vernon.


Raiders invade in the Apple Bowl


The Sun has outscored its opponents 209-34 in the four games since. “We are a team of competitive athletes, our guys know when it’s time to get down to business and I expect they’ll do that,” Casey said. “We’re a lot better club than we were last time when we played down there (Nanaimo). Our O-line has been phenomenal, our defense and D-line continues to do a great job, and our kicking game is improving with each game. “We’re a long way ahead of where we were two months ago.” To claim top spot in the BCFC for the second year in a row, the Sun (8-1) must beat the Raiders (9-0) by 14 points or more. With so much at stake, including home field advantage for the playoffs, Casey said his club will hold nothing back. “It’s balls to the wall for us, we’re not going out there to just win the game, we’re playing for first place and nothing else,” he said. “Winning the game 20-10 won’t mean a thing. It’s the same as finishing 8-2, second place is second place. “We need to win by two touchdowns, so we’re laying our cards on the table.” Kick off Sunday at the Apple Bowl is 1 p.m.

Chiefs look to bounce back from tough start The Kelowna Chiefs will look to shake an earlyseason losing streak Friday night when they visit Princeton Posse in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action. The Chiefs’ slump hit four games on Saturday night in a 7-6 loss to the

Kamloops Storm at Rutland Arena. Kelowna was outshot 45-18 through the first two periods and trailed 6-3, but made a game of it in the third period outshooting Kamloops 16-3 and scoring three times. Jordan Salahor led the

Chiefs offensively with two goals and two assists, while Derek Andrews added a goal and two helpers. On Friday in Summerland, the Steam downed the Chiefs 8-4. Kelowna starting goalie Tyler O’Donnell was

pulled in the second period after yielding six goals on 18 shots. Josh McEwan had a goal and an assist in the loss while Phil Bamber added two assists. The next home action for the Chiefs (3-5-0) is Saturday night against the Penticton Lakers.

Major Midget Rockets split weekend games The Okanagan Rockets split a pair of road games with Fraser Valley on the weekend, hitting the ice at UBC in Vancouver as part of the BCMML’s annual showcase weekend. The split has the Rockets at 2-and-2 early in the

B.C. Major Midget Hockey League. A day after Rockets captain Josh Ellis had a four point night to key a 6-4 comeback win, the Rockets dropped to .500 on the season with a 6-2 loss to the Valley West Hawks.

Trailing 4-2 heading to the third period on Saturday, the Rockets scored four unanswered goals to hand the Hawks its first loss of the season. Ellis, with his second of the game, Jordan Burns, Brett Mennear and Mitchell Cook scored

third period goals while Harrison Whitlock shut the door in net to earn his first BCMML win. Justin Marreck had the other Okanagan goal, his first in the BCMML. See Major A28

Kelowna’s female midget Tier 1 home opener at CNC was a rough and tumble affair as Kelowna and Salmon Arm battled hard in their season opener.

Cassie Laturnus, Breanna Bernsden and Christy Blackburne also scored for Kelowna who built a 3-1 lead before Kamloops came back to tie the game, setting the stage for Cook’s game winner.

Accounting for the candidates I

read a recent newspaper article the other day which indicated that potential candidates had picked up 50 nomination packages for the position of Kelowna city councilor while 11 packages were handed to people interested in running for mayor. In Kelowna, people will elect eight city councilors, a mayor and four school trustees. In West Kelowna, voters there will elect six councilors and the mayor. If individuals should choose to run for local public office, there are some financial requirements they need to be aware of. The candidates are required to comply with the Local Government Act Part 3, Local Government Election Regulation, BC Reg 390/93, Financial Disclosure Act and Financial Disclosure Act Reg 32/2001, which explain the requirements for keeping financial records. There are slightly different requirements for those candidates that are involved with a specific political party as opposed to those who are running for municipal council. The contributions to a political party or for a provincial candidate are deductible as a tax credit for tax purposes, while contributions to our municipal candidates are not. First, let’s start with the nomination process. Each candidate is required to submit a nomination document to the chief elections officer that includes the signature of at least 25 voters of the local electoral district nominating the candidate for election and submit the current registration fee which is usually about $100. The trustees need to be nominated by at least two voters of the school district. The prospective candidate is also required to file a Statement of Disclosure of financial assets. At the time of filing the nomination document with the chief election officer, the candidate could appoint individuals to assist with the election campaign and to represent the candidate when the candidate is unable to appear in person. This representative could be an Official Agent a Financial Agent, or both. Each candidate is required to have a financial agent.


Gabriele Banka If one is not appointed for that task, the candidate is deemed to be their own financial agent. A financial agent you must immediately open a bank account used only for the funds related to the election campaign. The duties of the financial agent are to record political contributions, income, election expenses and other expenditures to comply with the Financial Disclosure Act. Candidates may receive monetary (cash) contributions or in-kind contributions. Any candidate cannot receive an anonymous contribution of more than $50. If an anonymous amount over $50 is received, the entire amount must be turned into the government. Indirect contributions through a third party are not permitted. The name and ad-


dresses of the contributors need to be recorded. If the contributor is a corporation, then the names of two officers of the corporation need to be recorded. Expenses should be classified into the following categories—campaign advertising and other communication; operating the campaign office; conventions and events; research and opinion polling and campaign related transportation. There are no restrictions on how much you can spend on your campaign. If you receive a discount on an expense, the difference needs to be recorded as a campaign contribution. Any excess funds over expenditures at the end of the election are paid back to the candidate for his/ her own contributions; donated to a local charity or given to the chief elections officer in trust for the next campaign. The financial agent is also required to compile the campaign financing disclosure statement within 120 days after voting day, whether you were successful in the election or not.

Part of the disclosure statement includes a summary of election expenses organized by expense class. This statement is submitted to the electoral officer and is filed in the local government records. This statement remains on file for seven years and is available to any member of the general public who wishes to view it. The Official Agent becomes the campaign manager and can act as a contact for the chief election officer when you are out of town. The Official Agent may appoint scrutineers who may represent their candidate at a voting place to observe the voting procedures and scrutinize the counting process. The official City of Kelowna election website is The official twitter hashtag is #kelownavotes. The municipal election takes place the third Saturday of November, which this year will be Nov. 19.

Raising awareness about realities of mental illness M entall Illness Awareness Week is an annual national public education campaign designed to open the eyes of Canadians about the reality of mental illness. It was started by the Canadian Psychiatric As-

sociation in 1992, and is now organized by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health. This year’s campaign runs Oct. 2 to 9 and there are a number of excellent events taking place in our community.

One particularly useful feature of this week’s events is the Beyond the Blues depression and anxiety screening days, taking place on Thursday and Friday of this week. This year there will be two sites set up in town. The first will be

REGIONAL DISTRICT OF CENTRAL OKANAGAN REFERENDUM – NOVEMBER 19, 2011 (Killiney Community Hall Service Area Establishment) BYLAW NO. 1294 – Proposed establishment of a service area to fund the operation, maintenance and capital expenditures of the Killiney Community Hall Building Site NOTICE OF APPLICATION TO VOLUNTEER AS A SCRUTINEER On Saturday, November 19, 2011 qualified electors within the Killiney Community Hall Service Area will be voting on the following question: “Are you in favour of the Regional District of Central Okanagan adopting Bylaw No. 1294 to establish a service area within a portion of Central Okanagan West Electoral Area to operate and maintain the Killiney Community Hall, at an annual cost not to exceed $0.05 per $1000 of assessed value of land and improvements on properties within the service area?” In accordance with Section 169 of the Local Government Act, Scrutineers for and against the question must be appointed if applications are received from persons who wish to volunteer for the positions. Only persons entitled to vote as electors on the question shown above are entitled to act as scrutineers. One scrutineer for and one scrutineer against the question may be appointed for each voting place if sufficient applications are received. Applications to act as a scrutineer will be received by the Chief Election Officer at the office of the: Regional District of Central Okanagan 1450 K.L.O. Road, Kelowna, B.C. during regular office days and hours for the period: commencing at 9:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 4, 2011 and ending at 4:00 p.m., Friday, October 14, 2011. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. Application forms are available at: Regional District of Central Okanagan, 1450 K.L.O. Road, Kelowna, B.C. Download from our website at

Thursday at Okanagan College in The Pit, from noon to 2 p.m. On Friday, the screening will take place at the Rutland Y, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you are interested in learning more about depression or anxiety or would like to take part in the screening, simply walk up and some knowledgeable people will be there to assist you. You can also find some of the screening tests and information online at www.heretohelp. *** On Oct 18, Vernon native Michael Schratter will ride through Kelowna as part of the Ride Don’t Hide tour. Schratter is cycling around the world to battle stigma one pedal at a time. Everyone is invited to join him at 6 p.m. at the old KSS site and ride to Kelowna Cycle for a welcome home reception. Mental illness directly affects roughly one in five Canadians and touches the lives of almost everyone. Although we often


Paul Latimer think of media portrayals depicting ‘crazy’ people or those who are very disturbed, mental illness has many different faces and affects people from all walks of life. Although just as common as many other chronic illnesses, mental disorders are concentrated not among our senior citizens but among men and women in their prime working years. Among full-time employees in Canada, time



lost due to mental health issues makes up almost 50 per cent of all work time lost for illness. Many times, it takes years for a psychiatric illness to be diagnosed. Often people don’t seek help due to stigma and fear of the social and employment repercussions of being labelled as someone who is mentally ill. This often costs people unnecessary years of their lives and many opportunities both personally and professionally. Depression and anxiety are some of the most commonly occurring mental illnesses. Depression is characterized by more than simply feelings of sadness. A range of emotional symptoms including sadness, hopelessness and helplessness are also usually accompanied by a loss of interest in enjoyable activity, social withdrawal, irritability, aches and pains, fatigue and appetite changes to name a few. This is generally a chronic, recurring disorder that continues throughout a person’s adult life.

Several different kinds of anxiety disorders exist and one of the most common is Generalized Anxiety Disorder. With this condition, individuals worry about many different things and experience many of the physical symptoms also found in depression including aches and pains, fatigue, irritability, etc. It is also a chronic condition. Fortunately, effective treatments are available for both depression and anxiety disorders. At Okanagan Clinical Trials we also have ongoing studies in both depression and generalized anxiety disorder. If you are an adult experiencing one of these conditions, you may be eligible to participate. Contact our office for a free, no obligation medical assessment and to learn more about these opportunities—250-8628141. Paul Latimer is a psychiatrist and president of Okanagan Clinical Trials.

Economic plight of Cuba revealed



A special opportunity to see the documentary on Cubaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up? and meet filmmaker behind it will take place Saturday, 7 p.m., at the Kelowna campus theatre of Okanagan College. Emmy and George Polk award-winning filmmaker Saul Landau joined forces with Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler to tell the hidden story of 50 years of American terrorism against the Cuban people, presenting the case of the five Cuban anti-terrorists who tried to prevent subversive actions against their country and have been unjustly locked in U.S. prisons for over 13 years. Landau is a scholar, author and producer of more than 40 documentary films. He has been travelling on an international promotion tour for the film. The showing of the film is open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5

CHAMBERLAIN, JOAN CATHERINE ELSIE Passed away peacefully in the Kelowna General Hospital on October 01, 2011 in her ninety-first year. Born in Vancouver on January 02, 1921, Mum took great pride in the fact that she had lived in Kelowna for over ninety years.

Joan is lovingly remembered by her children, Trevor (Elizabeth) of Rockwood, Ontario, and Patty (Cam) McIntosh of Kelowna; ten grandchildren, Shawn, Robin (Daniel), Amy, Colin, Hayley (Scott), Laura, Graham, Brendan, Heather and Hayden; and many other family members and friends. Joan was predeceased by her parents, Aubrey and Elsie (Woodhams) Matthews; husband, Freddie; daughter, Bonnie (Talbot); and, brother, Richard. A loving, kind and generous daughter, mother, and grandmother, Mum was always “a good sport” who loved to travel, join family gettogethers, and play poker and crib. Her children and grandchildren were a very important part of her life. She loved them dearly, took pride in their accomplishments, and looked forward to their visits. Daughter Bonnie, who passed away in 2004, was deeply missed. Mum was a dedicated teacher, starting at Mission Creek School in 1942 and, later, teaching at Raymer Avenue, Dr. Knox Secondary, Glen Avenue and A.S. Matheson Schools. After retiring in 1985, she continued to enjoy calls and visits from two generations of former pupils. In her first year of teaching, Joan met her husband, Freddie, and they were married the following year. Joan and Freddie lived in the Mission Creek district for many years and brought up their three children, Trevor, Bonnie and Patty. Freddie passed away in 1996, after fifty-three years of marriage. Mum was always a very community-minded person. She was one of the founding members of the Kelowna Kinette Club and sang in the Kinette Choir for many years. Mum was also a Life Member of the Dr. Knox Chapter of the I.O.D.E., with sixty years of service. She worked regularly in the I.O.D.E.’s “Superfluity Shop” until her ninetieth birthday. Mum had fond memories of her years growing up in Kelowna, and had an immense store of knowledge about the history of the district. She was a dedicated member of both the Okanagan Historical Society and the Retired Teachers Association. Among other things, Mum edited a history of rural schools in the Okanagan and contributed articles to a variety of historical publications. In addition to her own writing, she was often consulted by others seeking information about local history. As a child Mum was introduced to the work of Frank L. Baum, creator of the series of books beginning with the “Wizard of Oz”. Her childhood enjoyment of these books blossomed into a lifelong interest in all things Oz. She was a proud member of the International Oz Club. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm on Wednesday October 05, 2011 at St. Michaels’ and All Angels Anglican Church at 608 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, with the Very Reverend Nissa Basbaum officiating. A tea will follow at Sunrise Village Recreation Centre at 1260 Raymer Avenue, Kelowna. Donations in memory of Joan Chamberlain can be made to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, 300-1090 West Pender Street, Vancouver, B.C. V6E 2N7 or at

Capital News Tuesday, October 4, 2011 A39


CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen giving thanks A visit to your garden or to a farmers’ market quickly answers the question about why we give thanks at this time of year. Colourful displays of squashes, apples, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, berries, onions, potatoes, chard, broccoli, cauliflower, pears, plums, peaches and corn are enough to overwhelm the senses. I had already planned a couple of the next meals for our household when I headed over to the market in Kelowna Saturday, but I found so many fresh ideas for other meals that I was inspired to toss out my previous ideas and plan anew, based on what I found. It should have been a bit frustrating, but it was actually exciting, because there was so much in the way of freshly-harvested fruits and vegetables and herbs. And, that’s not counting the preserves or the baking, made from all that fresh, local produce! Birds seem to be traditional fare in the way of meat on the Thanksgiving table, but whether that’s a big turkey, a duck, a grouse or game hen or a chicken doesn’t seem to matter much. Our stuffing always has onions, apples and spiced sausage sprinkled through it, along with a handful of aromatic sage fresh from the garden. It’s my favourite thing about turkey dinners. Cranberries, sauced with a bit of sweet, are the favourite of others around our celebratory table, and as we eat them, growers are just beginning to flood their fields and harvest them in the Fraser Valley, Richmond and on Vancouver Island. In terms of wine pairings with a turkey dinner, I tend to favour dry rose wines, but sparkling wines are very versatile and that's what's needed to go with the many flavours on the table for Thanksgiving dinner. There are some excellent B.C. sparkling wines, from the renowned Summerhill offerings such as the Cipes Brut, to the Sumac Ridge Steller's Jay. For more information on recipes for the bounty of B.C.’s orchards, fields, range and waters, pick up a copy of my new book, Jude’s Kitchen, published by the Okanagan Institute, wherever books are sold.

Warm B.C. Blueberry Bisque This recipe from the B.C. Blueberry Council looks delicious and would be a colourful and novel way to begin your Thanksgiving dinner. B.C. blueberries are yummy and good for you too. 1/2 c. (125 ml) shallots 2 tbsp. (30 ml) chives 2 tsp. (10 ml) oil 4 c. (1 l) fresh or frozen blueberries 1 c. (250 ml) veg or chicken broth 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) nutmeg 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) allspice salt, to taste 1 1/2 c. (375 ml) half & half cream 1 c. (250 ml) creme fraiche or sour cream 2 tbsp. (30 ml) fresh chives Finely chop shallots and mince chives.

Heat oil over medium-low heat in a pot and add chopped shallots. Cook just until translucent and add blueberries, broth and seasonings. Cook over medium heat until the blueberries soften and begin to burst, five to seven minutes. Cool slightly, then blend until smooth. Press through a fine sieve and discard the solids. Return blueberry mixture to the pot and whisk in the half and half cream. In a small bowl, combine chives and creme fraiche or sour cream. Spoon the bisque into eight soup bowls and top each with two tablespoonfuls of the chive creme fraiche or sour cream. Serves 8.


Spicy Baked Squash & Cheese This is a combination of different flavours: the sweet and nutty butternut squash, tickled with some exotic spices, interspersed with nuggets of tangy cream cheese and topped with crunchy crumbs. The Larch Tree Hill Riesling from Ganton & Larsen Prospect Winery pairs well with this, with its fresh fruitiness and crisp, yet juicy finish. 2 c. (1 l) squash cubes 2 large onions 2 large garlic cloves 1/4 c. (60 ml) fresh ginger drizzle of oil 2 tsp. (10 ml) cumin 1/2 tsp. (3 ml) five spice powder 1/2 tsp. (3 ml) nutmeg 14 tsp. (1 ml) ground cardomom 1/2 c. (125 ml) chicken broth salt and pepper, to taste 4 oz. (120 ml) cream cheese 1 c. (250 ml) buttered crumbs

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. I prefer the butternut squash for its flavour and because it peels easily, but any winter squash would work in this recipe. Peel, half and remove the seeds and membrane from a winter squash. Cut it into half-inch cubes. Chop onions and mince garlic and ginger and set aside. Heat a drizzle of oil in a frypan over medium heat and soften the ginger and onions. Add the spices, then the garlic and squash and mix it all together well, browning the squash slightly. Scrape it out into a baking dish and drizzle a little chicken broth over it all. Sprinkle with lots of freshly-ground black pepper and a little salt. Cut cream cheese into little cubes and dot the squash mixture with them. Sprinkle the top with buttered crumbs. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the squash is crisp-tender. Serves 4-6.
