BRANDON MCMILLAN has emerged again as a key player in the WHL playoff run this year for the Kelowna Rockets.

COLUMNIST ROBERT Smithson says a comedian now before the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal for his alleged discriminatory comments about an audience member may end up in Canada’s Supreme Court.

TAKING A CHANCE on music sometimes means venturing out to hear a musical group or solo performer you may never have heard of before, an opportunity that happens frequently in Kelowna.

NONE OF THE ABOVE is an option political party pollsters are having to recognize more in their polling results.

Go to a hockey game and see a protest break out. The campaign to gather signatures to either stop, or force a provincewide vote on the proposed Harmonized Sales Tax, was scheduled to kick off in Kelowna outside Prospera Place prior to last night’s Kelowna RocketsTri City Americans WHL playoff game. And regional Fight The HST campaign organizer Daniel Thorburn said canvassers will be back outside the arena tonight collecting signatures for their petition as well. The anti-HST campaign kicked off across B.C. yesterday as organizers have 90 days to gather the signatures of 10 per cent of the eligible voters in every one of the province’s 85 ridings. If they are successful, the government could be forced to either drop its plan to marry the provincial sales tax and the GST into one 12 per cent sales tax or hold a province-wide vote on its implementation. The new tax would be applicable on many See Petition A6

Property tax break given to WFN residents Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER

The Westbank First Nation has held the line on property taxes this year. The band’s chief and council approved a tax increase of 0.2 per cent in its 2010-2011 budget, or $2.40 more for the average homeowner this year, when compared to 20092010’s tax notice. The chairman of the Westbank First Nation Advisory Council, which represents non-natives

living on band land, said the band’s budget shows “good financial management.” Terry Turcan commented that he was pleased the WFN went easy on taxpayers’ pocketbooks this year. “It’s a very small increase––a little blip.” Growth on WFN lands helped offset taxes for residents living on reserves, Turcan noted. “There’s no question about it, the commercial growth especially has

2010 DL# C3289/5296

been significant.” Meanwhile, Chief Robert Louie said in a press release that the WFN’s budget is the result of “extensive planning and consultation by all stakeholders over the past six months.” “It reflects the cooperation and goodwill that are key to the WFN’s financial progress,” Louie said. The chief didn’t return calls for further comment. The band said that,

on average, a homeowner living on Westbank First Nation land would pay $1,222 in property taxes this year, after applying for the Home Owners’ Grant. The WFN expects to collect $9.9 million in property taxes, with $2.6 million spent on administration, financial services, human resources and information technology; $2 million set aside for reserves and contingencies; $1.4 million returned to residents in the form of

homeowners grants; $1.2 million spent on transit, the library, regional parks and community centres; $1.2 million for economic development, planning and engineering and $400,000 for recreation and youth programs. The band expects to collect a further $20.6 million from other sources of income, including fees for services, fines, development cost charges, community forest operations and revenue from a handful of corporations.

In turn, the WFN plans to spend an additional $17.1 million on other operations over the next year, with the remaining $3.5 million to be placed in reserves for capital and other future expenditures, said the WFN. The First Nations Tax Commission and the Minister of Indian Affairs are required to sign off on the WFN’s budget later this spring, clearing the way for tax notices to go out to

Downtown fire blamed on wiring An electrical problem is believed to be behind a small fire Monday afternoon that caused the temporary closure of Lawrence Avenue. However, it is business at usual again at Ric’s Grill, general manager Patrick Ryan said Tuesday. The fire department said employees noticed a rooftop cooling unit was on fire around 1:20 p.m. and were able to keep the fire small by using fire extinguishers until fire crews arrived. Damage to the building and mechanicals is estimated at $5,000. Ryan said a couple of wires caught fire and they will have to move a component following the fire, but “it didn’t affect our business.” Assistant fire chief Jason Brolund said familiarization with the location and use of portable fire extinguishers, like in this case, can assist in limiting the damage caused by a fire when it’s in its early stages. He also reminds business owners and operators to have their mechanical equipment inspected and serviced on a regular basis to ensure that it is operating safely and effectively.

W LOUD MUSIC COMPLAINT

Pumping up the volume leads to an arrest Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

Numerous speakers, stereos, receivers and at least one turntable are in the RCMP’s hands after they seized them from a Black Mountain resident with an apparent love of loud beats who liked to share his musical tastes with his neighbourhood. Police shared pictures of the seized items with the media on Tuesday, two

days after they showed up at the music man’s home in the 700-block of Lone Pine Drive and arrested the 38-year-old tenant. He is now facing a charge of mischief. Police say the drastic measures were taken Sunday after dealing with eight complaints of loud music related to the home in the previous two weeks. On five of those occasions, the tenant was given

a municipal violation ticket for playing loud music that disturbed the neighbourhood, said Cpl. Andrew Waddell. Bruce Stevens, who lives a couple of doors down from the house police searched, said that on a recent Saturday night, the music started up at 10:30 p.m. “(It) woke me up a few times in the night and it went on till about 6:00 in the morning,” said Ste-

vens, who didn’t file a complaint with police. The next day, he said, the music started again, the bass reverberating through his house. On the night police executed the search warrant, the stereo was apparently off, but officers still seized the man’s stereo equipment. Const. Steve Holmes can’t recall a time when a search warrant was used in a similar way, but also

said that people who get a visit from police for playing noisy music usually turn the volume down . “Once in a while, it seems you come across a case like this where no matter how many tickets, no matter what you do, the person does not get the idea,” said Holmes. The man arrested Sunday night has since been released and is scheduled to appear in court in June. However, no one an-

swered the door at the home on Monday afternoon. The man, whose name has not been released, also faces permanently losing his stereo equipment. “RCMP will seek the court’s approval for the forfeiture and destruction of the items seized during the execution of the search warrant,” Waddell said. cwierda@kelownacapnews.com

Family support program granted a financial reprieve Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

A Kelowna family support program will be able to open an extra day a week with the help of a group of non-profit funders. The Central Okanag-

an Family Resource Program will now be able to offer services for an extra day with funding from the Funding Really Early Development partnership, a table of non-profit investors. Michele Hucul, with The Bridge Youth and

capital news A3

Family Services Society, said that children are at the heart of what the society does. She noted the grant will allow the society to expand their capacity for families to meet, offering services for an extra day a week.

“For that, we are very appreciative.” The Central Okanagan Family Resource Program is a free to families with children six years old or younger. The program provides drop-in sessions, now three days a week, for par-

ents and children to spend time with other families and use play equipment. Su ccess by Six coordinator Carol Ellison said the program allows children to experience the world around them under the guidance of those who care about them.

She noted that the FRED group funding will aid some programs in offering additional days of the week to families. “In other instances, it will allow the creation of new programs in neighborhoods that are not currently being serviced.”

It’s been operating for a few weeks now but no office or project funded by any government is really “open” until a politician shows up to say so. So Kelowna’s new passport office in the Capri Centre Mall will get the political seal of approval today when Okanagan-Coquihalla MP and federal treasury board president Stockwell Day joins local MP Ron Cannan to “inaugurate” the office. The passport office, which was a goal of both Cannan and his predecessor Werner Schmidt, took several years to come about and was promised by both the former Liberal government and the current Conservative government. First announced at a time when it took several months to get a Canadian passport, with locals having to travel to Vancouver, Victoria or Surrey to visit a passport office in B.C., or mail their applications to Ottawa, the Kelowna office opened last month. It now takes just a couple of weeks to get a passport, even when applying by mail. Prior to its opening, Canada Post in Kelowna was allowed to charge a $15 fee to help the public fill in their passport application forms in a bid to try and expedite passports for people applying from here. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

W SHARING BACKYARDS

Urban gardening concept introduced to Kelowna Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Nearly everyone loves a beautiful garden, but it takes a special touch to turn the hours upon hours of labour into a yard full of colourful foliage. This is why local urban gardener Curtis Stone and Haruko Kagami, a woman who recently started a permaculture movement in Kelowna, decided it might be a good idea to pair the handy green thumbs in town with people who have the space to grow things but not the time or inclination to do so. The result is www. sharingbackyards.com. That’s not actually

their website or their idea. In fact, the website is based out of Victoria and is being used in several other cities. But with interest in Stone’s urban farming business, Green City Acres, bursting at the seems, he figured there’s likely a strong appetite in Kelowna for the concept. “I had a bunch of people offering me land for Green City Acres to farm and I just couldn’t use it,” said Stone. The permaculture group began in January and Kagami figured it could be used as a vehicle to troubleshoot local problems for those using the site. Officially they are

the local sponsor and already three people have signed up to have their yards farmed or gardened by others. “Gardening is really meditative. Really soothing as well,” said Kagami, who is also involved with the local transition city group, trying to reduce Kelowna’s dependence on oil and gas. Permaculture, she explained, is all about developing agricultural ecosystems that are sustainable, so the objectives of the sharing backyards program really fit with her group’s overall goals as well as providing those extra recreational benefits. While Stone spends everyday farming his land,

CURTIS STONE and Haruko Kagami decided it might be a good idea to pair the handy green thumbs in town with people who have the space to grow things but not the time or inclination to do so. Kagami says her garden is pretty well limited to her balcony at this point, so she understands the desire to get out and garden on any strip of yard available.

She’s planning on signing up for a garden on the website herself, although she admits she might still be too busy. She is organizing a permaculture course for

June to help acquaint Okanagan residents with the concept. So far the group has done some soil building at Summerhill Winery. This basically involves trench-

West Kelowna crash now results in street racing charges Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

A Calgary man allegedly involved in a fatal

street race last Easter is now facing charges. Court records indicate Michael John Bell, who is in his 50s, has

been charged with causing death by criminal negligence-street racing, causing bodily harm by street racing and danger-

ous operation of a motor vehicle in connection with the April 10, 2009 crash in West Kelowna. On that Good Friday, police say a BMW and a Porsche were involved in an afternoon race along Boucherie Road. The BMW was trailing the Porsche as they rounded the corner near Pritchard Drive, police

said at the time, and the 47-year-old driver of the BMW lost control. The car flipped several times before landing on its roof in an orchard. The driver was killed, and firefighters had to use the jaws of life to remove one of the three passengers from the vehicle. Court records indicate Steven Ewert was killed

in the crash. His fiancé, Sharon Todd, was injured. Police said at the time that they were told the two vehicles were headed toward a local golf course for lunch. The Porsche was impounded for 30 days after the crash. Bell’s first appearance was originally listed

as Monday, but the courthouse was closed for the Easter holiday. Court records Tuesday indicated his case was scheduled to be in front of a justice of the peace yesterday, and his case has been put over until May 13. cwierda@kelownacapnews.com

not to be confused with those charged to residents living in the neighbouring District of West Kelowna municipality. Their bills go out separately the last week of May and property taxes are due to the District of West Kelowna on July 7. West Kelowna resi-

items not currently subject to provincial sales tax, meaning an increase in taxes that will have to be paid. Thorburn, who started receiving petition forms at 2 a.m. on Tuesday from Elections B.C., said his team aims to collect signatures from between 20 and 30 per cent of the eligible voters in the four constituencies where he is overseeing the collections—Kelowna-Westside, KelownaLake Country, WestsideKelowna and Vernon-Monashee.

And he’s confident his team will succeed. “I don’t think we will l have a problem,” Thorburn told the Capital News yesterday afternoon. He said on average 5,000 signatures will have to be gathered in each riding to meet the 10 per cent minimum. The signatures will have to be approved by Elections B.C. Fight The HST organizers will monitor the collections here daily and Thorburn said if there is an area where the numbers are not coming in fast enough, more canvassers will be moved in to pick up the pace.

He said he expects to have as many as 50 canvassers in each riding and can sign up more canvassers over the next 90 days, as long as they were registered voters in B.C. as of April 6. As for where the canvassers will be, Thorburn said some of those details are still being worked out. While some will go door-to-door, others will be at high-traffic areas such as outside large stores and local malls. He said thanks to a recent Supreme Court of Canada ruling, canvassers are allowed to collect signatures on publicly acces-

Thorburn said he is still waiting for some of the badges for his canvassers but is happy with the level of organization and awareness that the campaign has already built up prior to the official signature collection period starting yesterday. The anti-HST campaign is being led by former Social Credit premier Bill Vander Zalm and is supported by the NDP and other B.C. political parties. The HST legislation is currently before the B.C. legislature for debate. Thorburn, who ran for the B.C. Refederation Party in the last provincial election in KelownaMission, said he originally just wanted to be a canvasser but stepped into a leadership role when another person dropped out. Anyone who wants to sign the petition right away can do so at Maggie’s Cafe in Plaza 33 in Rutland and can get more information by going to the FightHST.com website on the Internet or by phoning Thorburn at 250864-1385. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Sunset Drive drug bust leads to more charges Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

The trio arrested following a drug investigation on Sunset Drive last month are facing additional charges, and police have also identified a fourth person allegedly involved in the drug trafficking ring. On March 11, Steven Michael Herman, a 28-yearold Richmond man who police say is a known member of the Red Scorpions gang, was arrested after police executed drug warrants at two units at 1108 Sunset Dr. Police say he had a loaded handgun within reach at the time he was arrested inside one of those units. Originally, he faced three drug trafficking charges and a charge of possession of a firearm contrary to order. Now, court records indicate he faces five additional weapons charges and a charge of possession of stolen property. As well, new charges have been laid against two women who were arrested after they arrived at the apartments when police were there. Dianna Lynn Gazeley, 23, was originally charged with three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. She’s now facing an additional charge of possession of stolen property. The other woman, alleged to be 20-year-old Stephanie Rachelle Daley, is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and two counts of possession of a controlled substance. Matthew Joseph Brunsdon faces the same charges as Daley. Brunsdon wasn’t present when police executed the warrant, “but through investigation, we were able to identify him,” said Const. Steve Holmes. Police say three ounces of crystal methamphetamine, half an ounce of powdered cocaine, 1.5 ounces of crack cocaine, a large quantity of steroids, a bulletproof vest, $25,000 cash and other stolen items were seized during the drug warrant. Daley and Brunsdon are scheduled to make first court appearances on Thursday, and Gazeley and Herman are also scheduled to be in court that afternoon.

The 27-year-old driver of the Chevrolet received some minor facial injuries, including possibly a broken nose. He was taken to hospital, and his actions are now under police investigation. McLachlan says speed and alcohol were contributing factors to the crash.

Warm weather beckons cyclists The start of April brings warmer weather, longer days and more

cyclists and pedestrians enjoying Kelowna’s bike lanes and pathways.

The City of Kelowna has completed sweeping of all bike lanes and most roadways, and the number of commuter and recreational cyclists is on the rise. To make the experience safer and more enjoyable for cyclists, bike lanes in Kelowna are swept 10 times a year. Kelowna has more than 260 kilometres of on-street bike lanes, more than 30 kilometres of hard surface shared-use pathways and many kilometres of gravel recreational pathways. “For a city this size, Kelowna has one of the most extensive bike networks available,” said Jerry Dombowsky, regional programs manager for the City of Kelowna. “We are committed to providing environmentally responsible modes of transportation that encourage healthier lifestyles.” Cyclists are reminded to review the City of Kelowna’s Traffic Bylaws that pertain to cycling. In particular, all riders are required to wear a bicycle helmet and cycling

is not permitted on sidewalks. Motorists are also asked to be aware and to share the road with cyclists. Parking or driving in bike lanes throughout Kelowna is not permitted and motorists should be mindful of these rules at all times. “If everyone abides by the rules, it significantly reduces the risk of an accident,” said Mike Kittmer, active transportation coordinator. “We’re going to see more cyclists and more pedestrians as the city grows and everyone needs to be aware that being alert to motor, pedestrian and cycling traffic on the road is essential to safe travel.” An experienced cyclist himself, Kittmer says it is much more comfortable riding on the road with traffic when you know the rules, have a planned route and a clear understanding of your rights. He suggests cyclists visit bikesense.bc.ca for a thorough explanation of bicycle safety and regulations.

Steep terrain challenged firefighters as they dealt with a small forest fire on Saturday night. Around 7:15 p.m., the Kelowna Fire Department received multiple 911 calls after people spotted fire in the trees high above the 300-block of Clifton Road. “Once in the area, fire crews determined that the fire was burning at a low to moderate intensity…and was completely inaccessible by road, resulting in a steep, long hike for firefighters, who had the fire under control very quickly, despite the steep terrain and lack of water,” said assistant fire chief Jason Brolund. A fire guard was placed around the fire, estimated to be about a 1/4 acre in size. An RCMP investigation into the cause behind it is continuing.

NOW ONLY Egg addling keeps geese in check NEWS

W KELOWNA

The Okanagan Valley Goose Management program is preparing for its fourth year of egg addling to control the number of Canada geese in public spaces. Trained contractors have begun searching for nesting sites and hope to complete the addling program by the end of April. Egg addling involves shaking eggs within 14 days of incubation to make them non-viable. The U.S. Humane Society considers egg addling during this time to be humane. Once addled, the eggs are returned to the nest. Geese continue to incubate until they realize the eggs will not hatch. At this point, it is generally too late in the year to produce more eggs. Adults are not harmed and will continue with their regular life cycle after the nesting season. “Last year field crews located and addled 1,349 eggs between Vernon and Osoyoos,” said project coordinator Kate Hagmeier. “The multi-year project aims to reduce the population of resident Canada geese to a more manageable level, and reduce large concentrations of geese in heavily used public areas. “Due to the longevity of geese, it is expected to take three to five years to see a reduction in the Okanagan goose population from egg addling.” The public is asked to keep away from goose nests and to avoid touching the eggs; a special permit is required to perform egg addling. An egg addling permit has been secured from the federal government allowing crews from EBB Environmental Inc. to addle goose eggs on public and private lands with the owner’s permission. Public assistance is requested by reporting nest locations on private or public land. Email coordinator@okanagangooseplan.com or call 1-877-943-3209.

the Okanagan to reduce the risk of recreational water contamination from sources such as geese. A swimming notification program was implemented by Interior Health in 2006. Since then, no beach

advisories have had to be issued due in part to the combination of activities to protect beaches and beach water areas. The Okanagan Valley Goose Management Program is a partnership between the City of Kelow-

na, Regional District of Central Okanagan, District of West Kelowna, City of Vernon, City of Penticton, Town of Lake Country, Town of Osoyoos and District of Summerland.

Kelowna software development firm gaining national attention Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

For the seventh year in a row, Kelowna’s QHR Technologies Inc. has found itself on a list of the country’s leading information and communication technology (ICT) firms. But while the local company was ranked 183 on the Branham300 list of Canada’s top ICT companies (up from 239 in 2008), it was highlighted as a top “mover and shaker” in the industry and one of the fastest growing companies in the ICT sector. “Since making its first appearance on the Branham300 seven years ago, QHR Technologies has

consistently grown to become one of Canada’s leading health care ICT companies,” said Wayne Gudbranson, president and CEO of Branham Group. “What’s even more impressive is the fact that in a year that many others struggled, QHR Technologies leveraged its healthy financial position to expand inorganically while also adding to its existing customer base, leading to significant year-over-year growth.” Headquartered in the Landmark technology campus, just off Harvey Avenue, QHR develops and sells software for workforce management, such as payroll, scheduling and human resources,

as well as medical records software for both physicians and for patient records. The company was ranked fourth on the Branham list of movers and shakers in 2009 and sixth on the list of companies with the biggest growth. The Branham report dubbed 2009 “a year of opportunity and hardship,” noting while it was turbulent, the year closed out an extremely successful decade for the Canadian ICT industry. Despite its problems, 2009 did result in opportunities for some of the industry’s leading firms, said the report. QHR was considered one of the winners because of its enviable level of growth.

Speeding driver may face more troubles A driver involved in a crash between two trucks in Glenmore on Easter Sunday is being investigated for driving under the influence of alcohol. Police believe a Chevrolet truck that was headed north on Glenmore Road and travelling at a “high rate of speed” struck the back end of a Dodge Ram stopped at the red light for Yates Road at approximately 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. “The Chevrolet truck then proceeded through the intersection crossing Yates Road, striking the shopping plaza sign and coming to rest,” said Staff Sgt. Terry McLachlan. The 27-year-old driver of the Chevrolet received some minor facial injuries, including possibly a broken nose. He was taken to hospital, and his actions are now under police investigation. McLachlan says speed and alcohol were contributing factors to the crash.

Lining up the paperwork for filing your income tax return BEHIND THE COUNTER

I

Gabriele Banka

t takes a lot of paper to put together a tax return. Most income is recorded and sent to the tax payer by way of income slips. If you are an employed person you may receive one or more T4 slips. On the T4 slip you can find your gross income (Box 14), Canada Pension Plan (CPP) paid (Box 16), Employment Insurance (EI) paid (Box 18) and income taxes paid (Box 22). You don’t need to receive a T4 slip if your income was under $500 and if there was no CPP, EI or income tax deducted. Your employer will know how much CPP, EI and income tax to deduct by the information from the TD1 form that you filled out when you started employment. There are also boxes for charitable donations, union dues and registered pension plan payments paid through your place of employment. At the bottom of the form, there are a number of empty boxes that are used for taxable benefits. If you have a number in one of these boxes, it has already been included in Box 14 which is your gross income. The kinds of items that would appear here would be commission income, foreign taxes paid, lodging or moving expenses to name a few. This slip is required to be issued by the last day of February each year. If this slip needed to be amended, it would be re-issued with the word ‘Amended’ typed on the top of the slip. If you have pension or other income, that may be reflected on a T4A slip. The unique thing to watch out for on this slip is if there is any income in Box 28. Box 28 requires that the footnote that is located in Box 38 be referenced. These footnotes cover about two dozen different items ranging from scholarships, bursaries, death benefits, DPSP or RPP in-

come, loans, medical premiums, group term life insurance for example. This slip is also required to be issued by the last day of February each year only if the income amount is greater than $500 or if the benefit amount in box 28 is greater than $25. To amend this slip, it would need to be reissued with the word ‘Amended’ typed on the top of the slip. Other slips that may be received by pensioners are T4AP which is the slip that explains the amount of CPP benefits, survivor and assistance payments that you have received during the year. The T4AOAS is the slip for the Old Age Security. If your Old Age Security has been clawed back during the year, this claw back will be shown on the slip in the box marked income taxes paid. If you are receiving funds out of your RRIF you would receive a T4RIF indicating the funds withdrawn and any taxes paid on the withdrawals and whether this was from your RIF or a spousal RIF. Investment income is usually reported on a T5 slip. This slip will display items such as eligible dividends and regular dividends, interest, capital gains dividends. This slip allows the issuer to state the currency at the bottom of the slip. You might also find the Canadian equivalent of foreign income earned and foreign taxes paid in Boxes 15 and 16 on this slip. To amend this slip you would re-issue the slip and change the Report Code from ‘O’ for original to ‘A’ for amended. This slip also needs to be issued by the end of February each year. Another investment income slip is the T3 slip. This slip is usually issued when income is distributed to beneficiaries of a trust. This type of investment became popular with the Real Estate Investment Trust Units. This slip also lists eligible dividends, regular dividends, capital gains and other income. Other income is usually considered and taxed

as interest. Other items that can be listed in the blank boxes in the middle of the slip are foreign income and foreign taxes paid as well as return of capital. To amend this slip also requires changing the figure in the report code (Box 16) from a ‘0’ for original to ‘1’ for amended. This is the only slip that is not required to be issued by the end of February.

Instead it must be issued by the end of March every year and the reason why April is such a busy month for accountants. T4RSP slips are issued when people withdraw money from their RRSP savings plans and indicate the gross amount withdrawn and the 10% that is withheld by the banks upon withdrawal. In addition to those basic types of slips, there are other slips that have

are issued for more specialized purposes such as the RC62 for the universal child care benefit. The T4E is issued for employment insurance benefits. The T2202 is issued for tuition and education credits. The T5007 is issued for WCB benefits. The T5008 is issued by security companies when you buy or sell securities at a gain or loss. The T5013 is issued

when there is an investment in a partnership. In addition to the various slips there are also a number of forms that may be issued depending on the situation such as the RRSP contribution slips that indicate the amounts contributed to an RRSP for the year and whether the contribution was to a spousal RRSP and the T2200 for claiming employment expenses. Added to that are the medical and donation re-

ceipts, and now the Home Renovation Tax Credit receipts. All this information needs to be compiled in order to enter the information on the numerous schedules that make up the T1 individual tax return.

that our Canadian economy receives revitalization because of the efforts of all categories of entrepreneurs. In fact, the world has turned now to free enterprise as a model for economic development. The passion and the drive of entrepreneurs move the world of business forward as they challenge the unknown and continuously create our future. Entrepreneurship has truly become the symbol of business tenacity and achievement. Entrepreneurs have the ability to sense opportunity, drive to innovate and create. Their capacity for accomplishment is the benchmark by which free enterprise is now measured. We are experiencing a worldwide entrepreneurial revolution, visible from right outside our window. The Globe and Mail this past week published an article stating that in 2009, 117,000 Canadians started their self-employment journey through entrepreneurial pursuit. Now that is a signal, is it not? This revolution, it is said, will become more powerful to the 21st century than the Industrial Revolution was to the 20th century.

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young ture creation. Whew! Yet, in the midst of this realm of revolution, it is my belief, which is shared by many academics, scholars and business leaders, that entrepreneurship is more than the mere creation of new ventures. Although an important facet, it is not the complete picture. An entrepreneurial perspective can be developed in individuals and can be exhibited inside or outside an organization, in profit or nonprofit enterprises, and in both business or non-business activities for the purpose of bringing forth creative ideas. Entrepreneurship then is an integrated concept that genuinely permeates our society and individuals in an innovative manner. It is this perspective that has revolutionized the way business is conducted at every level and in many nations. It is clearly a perspective that has reinvigorated individuals to once again reach into their inner self to find the innovative spirit that resides in all of us. This is, in effect, the true essence of entrepreneurial leadership. I would like now to kick in a handful of characteristics that I believe will offer all of us factors underlying great entrepreneurial leadership. I have extracted them from research texts in my personal library but will be familiar to all: 1. Self-Esteem: Underlying everything, is a high sense of one’s own self-worth. Without that, individuals will never be able to undertake tough challenges, hence the importance to develop self esteem. 2. Need to Achieve: The world of academia and entrepreneurial writers strongly highlight this characteristic associating this need with those who constantly seek to perform at their best. A pivotal goal of the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society when seeking to contribute to leadership. Persons high in this need See Future A14

W ENTREPRENEURS

Oriented to find their success Future from A12 are open to feedback, are goal oriented, seek to be unique and strive for accomplishments based on their own efforts— important to effective leadership. 3. Screening for Opportunity: Leaders screen incoming information to seek new growth opportunities. They act like gold miners pouring through tons to find a few precious nuggets. 4. Locus of Control: The literature tells us that successful leaders and entrepreneurs typically show a “high internal locus of control.” 5. Goal Orientation: This is an important one and one which I am constantly aware in my research and readings about entrepreneurs. Those ventures that last always share a common factor— a relentless drive to accomplish their goals. They embrace and understand what the priorities are and continue to work at it—day in and day out. (Sound familiar folks?) 6. Optimism: Underlying successful entrepreneurial leadership is a boundless

font of optimism. When faced with any problem or issue, they view it as a challenge. A setback, is viewed as a new direction; when told no, they say “ maybe, not now.” 7. Courage: Sure entrepreneurs are risk takers as all small business owners but it does take a great deal of courage to build an organization, a new venture, a team from the ground up because at those moments in time of decision, one is often alone. 8. Strong Internal Motivation: The emotion that drives our behaviour dear readers, comes from two sources—internal (intrinsic) and external (extrinsic). Intrinsic includes needs, desires, motives and will power. Extrinsic details such things as rewards and punishments. For entrepreneurs and their leaders, the most important motivational factor is the intrinsic. Entrepreneurs keep going in spite of criticism, failures, setbacks, etc. The “ fire inside “makes it all real and worthwhile for entrepreneurial leadership. eagleyoung@shaw.ca

W ROCKETS

Career good to McMillan Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

From both the personal and team perspectives, Brandon McMillan’s career with the Kelowna Rockets didn’t exactly begin with a bang. The speedy grad of the B.C. Major Midget League’s Vancouver Rangers managed a paltry two goals in 55 games in his rookie season, while the Rockets tanked in the Western Hockey League’s B.C. division with just 22 wins. Four seasons later, McMillan is happy to report that life is good in the land of Ogopogo. “I remember that first year was tough and pretty frustrating,” said McMillan, whose family moved with him to Kelowna from Tsawwassen during his rookie season in the WHL. “But I think everybody knew that wouldn’t last, and it’s been a pretty good ride here ever since.

We were a lot better the next year, we went to the Memorial Cup a year after that, and now we’re back in the race again. I can say it’s really been a great four years here for me.” Because the Rockets are in the thick of a playoff battle, McMillan hasn’t allowed himself much time to reflect on his major junior career which, in all likelihood, will end within the next several weeks. Barring any unforeseen twists, the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks are expected to promote the 5-foot-11, 190 pound forward to the pro ranks next season. If he doesn’t make the jump straight to the big club, McMillan will most likely suit up for the Ducks’ new AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch. The Ducks liked both his speed and work ethic when they drafted McMillan in the third round—85th overall—in the 2008 entry draft. As a bonus, the NHL club saw McMillan excel

FRED SCHAAD/CONTRIBUTOR

BRANDON MCMILLAN has been vital to his team’s success in his fourth season with the Kelowna Rockets. as a forward with Team Canada at the 2010 world junior championship, then watched him display his versatility by playing defense for the Rockets during last spring’s WHL championship run. Kelowna head coach Ryan Huska said McMillan has evolved into

one of the organization’s most reliable players. “The one thing about having a tough first year as a team is that Brandon and our young players, the 16 and 17-year-olds, had the chance to play a lot, so he’s really benefitted from that over the course of four years,” said Huska.

“He’s become a very good two-way player and was very important in our run to the Memorial Cup last year. He works very hard off the ice and has made himself an even more explosive skater because of the work he puts in. (In the playoffs) this year he’s been doing everything

we’ve asked of him.” Through 11 post-season games, McMillan had two goals and nine assists and, playing on a line with Geordie Wudrick and Lucas Bloodoff, played a vital role in Kelowna’s first-round upset of the Everett Silvertips. Because Kelowna lost

so much veteran talent from last year’s club—10 players, including Jamie Benn, Tyler Myers and Colin Long—few gave the Rockets much of a chance of contending this season. But based on what the Rockets have shown thus far in the playoffs, McMillan said there’s every reason to believe the club can have another prosperous run though April and, just maybe, beyond. “Before the playoffs, I think a lot of people had written us off,” said McMillan, who had 25 goals and 42 assists during the regular season. “We showed a lot of resilience against Everett and that we can play with anybody. I think everybody here is committed to working together and that’s why we’re having success. If we play with way we can, then I think we’re in for a long run. If it is my last year, it would be a nice way to end with another trip to the Cup.”

W CURLING

Ursel, Scott close season in Dawson Creek A pair of Kelowna rinks will be among the field of 32 teams for the last major tournament of the 2009-10 season on the World Curling Tour. Bob Ursel and Kelly Scott will compete in the Grey Power Players’ Championship— the final event of the Capital One Grand Slam of Curling series—April 13 to 18 in Dawson Creek. Sixteen men’s and 16 women’s teams will take part in the triple knockout event with $100,000 in prize money up for grabs. Among other teams competing on the men’s side are 2010 Olympic gold medalist Kevin Martin, 2010 Brier champion Kevin Koe of Edmonton and former world champ Glenn Howard of Ontario.

Ursel, Jim Cotter, Kevin Folk and Rick Sawatsky sit eighth overall on the WCT men’s money list this season with $32,000 in earnings. The 2008 B.C. champs won twice on the tour this season at the September Shootout in Edmonton and the West Coast Classic in New Westminster. The Scott rink will be joined on the women’s draw by reigning Scott Tournament of Hearts champ Jennifer Jones from Winnipeg, 2010 Olympic silver medalist Cheryl Bernard of Calgary and 2008 Players’ champion, Saskatchewan’s Amber Holland. Scott, Jeanna Schraeder, Sasha Carter and Jacquie Armstrong haven’t played in a competitive event since the Scotties in Sault Ste. Marie in February.

“We are going into the Player’s Championship to really enjoy ourselves and finish off the season on a good note,” said Scott. “We haven’t set any major goals for this tournament as our curling ice is already out in the Okanagan so we won’t be able to practice leading up to the event, but we would be really happy to make the qualifying round in the tournament. Sometimes a break from the ice can allow you to play with a free mind and things can sometimes flow easier that way, although it might take us a few ends to shake off the cobwebs.” The 2006 and 2007 Canadian champs have one victory on the circuit this season, the Manitoba Lotteries Classic in Winnipeg in October. They rank second on the WCT money list this season with $30,300

W MIDGET CHAMPIONSHIP

Edmonton holds off midget girls Warren Henderson

Turn With Your Legs Not Your Shoulders

STAFF REPORTER

Do you sometimes feel like your outside ski skids out at the end of the turn? It could be because you’re turning with your upper body and turning yourself out of balance. While walking down the street and turning around a corner you wouldn’t throw your shoulders around the turn first then have your lower body catch up, that just wouldn’t work. What you would do is lead the turning effort with your feet and legs, the same thing should be true on a pair of skis. If you’ve ever watched a World Cup race on TV or a seen really good skier come down the mountain while you’re riding up the chair what you might have noticed is a really stable upper body and an active lower body. A lot of skiers are the opposite, active upper body and stiff lower body. To help stabilize your upper body a get your lower body working try this; pick a narrow run and see if you can point your belly button at a tree on the side of the run. As you start your turn, initiate with your legs but see how long you can keep your belly button facing the tree. This will help create some “separation” between your upper and lower body therefore leaving you better balanced against the outside ski and getting better edge grip at the end of the turn. Try it in a single turn first, one on each side and then see if you can do it in a series of turns. Turning with your lower body like this will help you “turn into balance”. For help with this and more spend some time with a pro from the Big White Ski & Board School. The conditions on the mountain are excellent so come on up and make the most of it!

The Thompson Okanagan Rockets had visions of a trip to Regina later this month for the Esso Cup national midget girls hockey championship. The Edmonton Thunder had other ideas. With both experience and a competitive edge on their side, the Thunder took down the Rockets in straight games to win the Pacific regional playoff over the weekend at West Kelowna’s Royal LePage Place. The Rockets failed to find the back of the Edmonton net in the best-ofthree series, losing 5-0 on Friday and 3-0 on Saturday. The Thunder—who competed last year at nationals—had just come through a pair of tough five-game playoff series in Alberta. The Rockets, on the other hand, hadn’t played a meaningful game since March 13 in Prince George when they won the B.C. championship. Kelowna outscored their opponents 42-6 at provincials and, according to head coach Sylvain Leone, simply didn’t face the level competition necessary to be properly prepared for what Edmonton would throw at them in the Pacific playoff. “Edmonton brought the kind of championship intensity and competitiveness that we hadn’t seen and we just couldn’t develop that fast enough to match them,” Leone said. “We were much bet-

ter in Game 2 and, had the series been longer, I think we could have competed. “The girls started to adjust in the second game and we started to challenge them…but they had a hot goaltender and there wasn’t much we could do.” Leone said too much down time during key stages of the season were a detriment to his Rockets. The local girls had a three-week break between the end of the season and provincials, then another three-week layoff before the regionals. “We played in only two tournaments in six weeks and (Edmonton) overwhelmed us with their competitiveness and grittiness,” he added. Still, Leone and the Rockets can take many positives from the season as T.O. finished tied for first in the B.C. female midget AAA girls league with a 14-3-1 record. The Rockets then went 6-0 in Prince George to win the 2010 provincial title. Other season highlights included 16-yearold forward Julia McKinnon winning the regular season league scoring title with 29 points (16g, 13a) and Jordan Krause topping all defenceman in scoring with 22 points. Ten players—one goaltender, four defenders and five forwards— all born in 1992 will be graduating from the program. “Hopefully all the girls who are eligible to come back with return to us next year,” added Leone.

swimmers are starting to look really strong across all strokes. The KAJ have now qualified over 50 swimmers for the regional level meets where in the past we were sitting at around 30 swimmers so we are getting stronger every swim meet. Our coaching staff is doing a great job and our results are starting to really show.”

“Regular Joe” Plumber & Wife Speak Out and Reveal the Raw Truth About That Canadian “Multi-Millionaire,” Darren Weeks, and his How to Get Rich in BC Seminars.

Brian Lauer a “Regular Joe” This guy, Darren Weeks, promises all sorts of things to us average Canadians about how we can get out of the “Canadian Rat Race” and on to the “Fast Track”. He claims that people can start from scratch and become “Rich” in 5 years or less. He talks about wrestling back control of your ¿nances from the Big Banks and Financial Planners. He says he teaches people how to buy Canadian Real Estate with “No Money Down”, and many other “creative” money making ideas and so on. Every time I used to read one of his ads, I thought, “Who could be dumb enough to fall for this guy’s smoke & mirrors?” Now, I’m going to tell you the raw truth about Darren Weeks and his “How to Get Rich in BC” stuff. My name is Brian Lauer. I live in Kelowna, B.C. with my wife Donna and our 2 kids. I grew up in Saskatchewan, moved to B.C. in the early 70’s. After doing different jobs in the Alberta oil patch, and then in construction, I married Donna in 1991. A few years after getting married I was out of work for a few months and I decided to get into plumbing. It was pretty rough trying to make it on apprentice wages of only $9 bucks an hour back then – especially with a family to support. Once I got my Plumber’s ticket things were OK, but I always thought I could do better in life instead of just grinding it out 9 - 5. I was doing OK with my plumbing work. But at the end of the day I was always trading hours for dollars – and there always seemed to be more expenses than money in the bank. If I ever stopped working, the money stopped coming in. I had a $15,000 line of credit that I honestly thought I’d never pay off. Then in 2001 I saw an ad for one of these “Free Rich Dad” events. I had read “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and I thought what the heck, maybe I should be a little more open minded – what can I lose at a ‘free’ seminar anyway? But in the back of my mind I was sure that they were going to try to get me all jazzed up and excited, and then try to sell me some $5,000.00 real estate course. I had told myself that I would only stay at the event until the “pitch” started, then I’d go home. What Donna and I discovered at Darren’s “How to Get Rich in Canada” seminar really shocked us. First of all, I was waiting the whole time for the “other shoe to fall” and wondering when I was going to get “pitched” the expensive Real Estate course. It never happened. The most expensive thing I could buy there was a book – and they weren’t hardly mentioned. What was mentioned

were rock solid ideas, tips and strategies that Darren himself has put to use in his own life to create millions of dollars in income and equity in his businesses, investments and Real Estate. The man doesn’t like the Big Banks or Financial Planning companies very much, and he showed us why not. He opened our eyes to a whole different way of thinking about money and wealth – and most importantly, he inspired us to take action and go for it! Within a week of attending that event we decided to make Real Estate investing our vehicle to wealth (but Real Estate is not the only subject covered at Darren’s events – he also goes in depth about Business and Investing). Over the next couple of months we got cracking and started buying our ¿rst investment properties. Now, just a few short years later, we have over 29 ‘doors’ (rental units) in B.C. and Alberta and we are looking for another apartment building to buy with our investors. The positive cashÀow from our properties is more than enough to replace my plumber’s wages. Now I work at plumbing because I want to, not because I have to. While others in my ¿eld are worried about the economy and impending work shortages – all I can see is opportunity! And I know that if anything ever happened to me, we would be just ¿ne with our Real Estate. Not only that, but we learned how to buy them right and at the right price, and our Net Worth now of¿cially makes us millionaires twice over! (Which is sweet revenge for all the snickers we got from friends and family when we ¿rst told them what we were up to). Now you might be asking yourself how such a thing could happen to a blue-collar guy like me. The answer is simple. It’s all about learning how real proven and effective wealth creation systems work. I’m not talking about the “late nite t.v.” crap that comes in from South of the border either. I’m talking about proven methods and strategies that work right here in Canada – our home and native land. In spite of everything you’ve heard about investing in Real Estate being ‘risky’ – or the failure rate of starting your own business – or how crappy investing can be (and it can be – if you do it the way the ‘establishment’ tells you to) you too can learn how to get rich sooner rather that later. So here is the raw truth about Darren Weeks: Unlike most of those ‘pretend’ experts out there, he actually teaches stuff that works. He not only teaches it – he does it! He walks his talk and has businesses, investments and lots of Real Estate. Just like me, you’ve seen his ads in this paper before. You’ve gotten postcards from him. Or maybe you’ve seen him on TV, or heard his ads on the radio. If you haven’t been to one of his “How to Get Rich in BC” events yet, I don’t know why. Maybe you think you’re too smart and know it all, or that it is going to be a rip off, like I did. But if you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich and happy? Maybe you are doing well already – but you could do better (many of Darren’s students are ‘retired’ in their 30’s or 40’s). Maybe you just don’t want to be sold something that’ll be a waste of your hard-earned money. About that you can

relax. At this event there’s nothing for sale that’s more expensive than a book – so leave your cheque book at home! I’ve got over two million reasons why you ought to check out what Darren has to say. What reasons do you have NOT to look at this? There are events coming to Kelowna on Monday and Tuesday, April 12 & 13. These are FREE events if you pre-register (otherwise it is $39.95 at the door) and registration is super easy. Either go on-line to www.FastTrackinKelowna.ca or call the 24 hr. live operator to register by phone at 1-877-RICH CDN (1-877-742-4236). By the way, I wasn’t paid even a penny or given anything to write this about Darren Weeks. I am a regular Joe just like you. I did this as my way of saying thanks to Darren for everything he’s done for me and my family. And I’m not the only person who feels this way. Darren has spoken to over 100,000 Canadians at his events since he started in 2001. Many, just like me, are now making more money than they ever did before and are reaching their own ¿nancial dreams. My wife Donna just says “Wow” about how much we have accomplished and how much more we are going to do and have. We continue to go to Darren’s events as often as we can, because we always learn something new, and meet great new people. All I can say is, “don’t envy us. Join us” BRIAN LAUER, Kelowna, B.C.

Darren Weeks, Donna & Brian Lauer (after his make over!) P.S. Please don’t get my number and call me. The last thing I need is a zillion phone calls asking me about Darren Weeks. I’ve said what I have to say right here. What else could you possibly need to know? Go to his upcoming FREE Event and learn for yourself “How to Get Rich in BC”. These events are in Kelowna on Monday & Tuesday, April 12 & 13, 2010 and you can go either at 12 noon or 7 p.m. The event is FREE with pre-registration, so go online to www.FastTrackinKelowna.ca or call 1-877742-4236 to register with a live operator 24/7. Register now. You owe it to yourself.

Loss of a favourite shovel is a relationship hard to replace

A

couple of weeks ago I did something I’m not proud of—I pushed a piece of equipment to its breaking point. Every piece of equipment has its limitations, but if it is used as it was meant to be used, a shovel handle should never break. When I was in the landscaping business many years ago it was common for someone to break a shovel handle at least once a week. Most of the carnage was executed by new people on the job, but

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett even some seasoned professionals were known to have taken their favourite tool to the brink. I can only remember breaking two or three in all the time I’ve been working with shovels. Until this latest episode it had been 20 or 30 years since my last one.

There is no reason for a shovel handle to break unless it is used as a pry bar and that is exactly what I was doing. I was trying to remove some cribbing from a concrete curb I poured in my new landscape and was just in too much of a hurry to go to my shop and get my crow bar. Unfortunately this was my favourite shovel that has dug a lot of holes over the years. The new one I bought just isn’t the same. Hopefully I can form a good relationship with it but just in case I pur-

chased a new handle for the old one and it will make a nice little project for me in my workshop next winter. ••• Trees and shrubs are now starting to push buds and if you have any thoughts of doing some transplanting now is the time to safely do it. Once they are out in leaf and the warm weather hits it is too late to do it safely. I’m speaking, of course, about moving an existing plant from one location to another.

How to banish those weeds Teresa Erickson CONTRIBUTOR

Few gardeners have not run into a weed problem at some point or another. Weeds can grow anywhere there is soil—in your lawn and garden, flowerbeds and even in the cracks of your driveway. Controlling them can be difficult, but it is not impossible. Here are some suggestions for removing the weeds from your landscape and curtailing their chance of return:

HAND PULLING

For weeds here and there, pulling them by hand may be the easiest and quickest method of removal. When possible, remove the root of the weed. This will reduce the potential for it to grow back.

want to consider laying down landscaping fabric and topping it with mulch where possible. This will block sunlight and make it difficult for weeds to return. Mulch is ideal for play areas, flowerbeds and other sites. Weed control is not easy and can be downright frustrating. Keep your chin up. Eventually, you will discover a method that works.

the fear of them stretching. It’s still a bit early to start cucumbers and squash indoors but just fine for tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. Something else you might want to start on the windowsill this year is begonia tubers. I don’t know why the popularity of this plant has waned over the years. Perhaps it is because there are so many begonias available as plants and people just don’t want to take the time to grow them from tubers. I can tell you this, however, the plants you

see in four-inch pots in the bedding plant section will never do what a plant grown from a tuber will do. Big fat blooms 3 inches across all summer long is what a nice sized camellia begonia will produce, and lots of them. This is one of the best plants for shade you can find and for an added bonus the tubers can be easily stored over winter for next season.

CRTC neglects viewer interests

atching TV could soon cost more money. When the CRTC opened the door last week for Canada’s TV networks to begin negotiations with cable and satellite companies for fees to carry their signals, it endorsed what amounts to a new tax on the 88 per cent of Canadian households that subscribe to cable or satellite to get their TV. If you’ll recall, last fall we were bombarded with dour warnings from the likes of CTV and Global that if the networks

weren’t allowed to extract fees from the companies that distribute their programming to the vast majority of their audience, they would be forced to pull the plug on local shows, maybe even close local stations. They accused the cable and satellite companies of fattening their wallets at the expense of hard-working, impoverished TV networks by plucking their signals from the airwaves for free and then charging us to see them. The big cable and satellite

companies fired a few retorts, but they were half-hearted. After all, they also happen to own the networks; Bell owns CTV, Rogers owns CITY and Shaw is bidding for the broadcast properties of bankrupt Canwest Global. The CRTC has ordered the various players to get together to negotiate an amicable arrangement that would provide a guaranteed revenue stream to the networks and likely increase the billion dollar profits of the cable and satellite operators. Such a cozy arrangement

will hurt consumers, who already pay an average of $94.98 per month for their cable or satellite service. Some estimates say that will increase by about $10 once negotiations end. The CRTC has been a pawn for Canada’s broadcasters and distributors for too long. The broadcasters should have to earn our eyeballs by providing quality programming we want to see at a price we can afford, not be coddled by a bureaucratic regulator in a protected marketplace.

The first was an old-age pension for jailed multiple murderer Clifford Olsen. The finance department knows it gives senior citizen prisoners pensions—and their crimes don’t affect that. But when the public learned Olsen was getting a pension, the Prime Minister jumped on the public outrage bandwagon, demanded answers and vowed to make changes. The government also knew that pardons are routinely handed to convicted criminals who have served their sentences. But when the public was told former junior hockey coach Graham James, who served time for sexually assaulting his young players, received a pardon in 2007, once again the PM expressed outrage, demanded an-

swers and vowed to make changes. It’s policy by public opinion. And it’s not just the Conservatives who do it. The Liberals did it when they were in office and I’ll bet my union pension—if I had one—that the NDP would do the same thing if it were in power. The public has lost confidence in its politicians because what was once a noble calling has degenerated into a series of photo-ops and that to been deemed successful requires headlines and making the Opposition look bad. Nowadays politicians don’t act because it’s the right thing to do; they act because their political opponents are suggesting another course of action and by doing the opposite, they can claim their opponents are wrong.

No wonder Canada’s one-time voter turnout of 80+ per cent is gone. When was the last time you came across a politician who could relate to his or her constituents? Sure, every party has its true-believers, the rank and file who drank the Cool-Aid, but once they are accounted for, what about the rest of us? Increasingly we vote against a political party, not for the ideas of the candidate who actually gets our vote. So with the None Of The Above Party appearing to be the early favourite heading into the next federal election, and its obvious leader, No One, poised to be prime minister, we can count on nothing getting done. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

W TAXATION

HST exclusive territory of federal gov’t To the editor: Having read and heard a great deal regarding the Liberals moving forward with the HST, I feel that the people of this province deserve a clearer explanation of the agreement that the federal and provincial governments have entered into. First of all, the term “harmonzied sales tax” is misleading. The two levels of government are not joining together or “harmonizing” the PST with the GST. To do so would be unconstitutional for the following reasons. The GST is an indirect tax, which falls within the “exclusive” jurisdiction of the federal government (Section 91 of the Constituion Act 1982). This means only the federal government, and no one else, including the provinces, can levy and collect an indirect tax within their respective (provincial) jurisdictions. Nor can they delegate a province to levy and collect an indirect tax on their behalf. The PST is a direct tax, which falls within the “exclusive” jurisdiction of the provinces (Section 92.2 of the Constitution Act 1982). This means the federal government cannot levy or collect a direct tax on behalf of any province, period. And the federal government

cannot be delegated to levy and collect a direct tax on behalf of any province either. In 1950, the Supreme Court of Canada, in what is known as the Lord Nelson case, made it very clear that neither level of government could delegate their exclusive taxing authority to the other, nor could they receive that delegation from the other. Therefore, under the HST agreement, in order for the (B.C.) provincial government and the federal government to abide by the Supreme Court ruling, the (B.C.) provincial government has agreed to stop charging the PST altogether, which will be, in essence, “zero”, as of July 1, 2010, and the GST (renamed the HST), will be 12 per cent. Although this agreement respects the Supreme Court decision, and the letter of the Constitution Act 1982, it certainly does not respect the spirit, purpose and intent of the law as was originally intended by the drafters of the British North America Act of 1867, now known as the Constitution Act of 1982. The other important point worth mentioning, which has not received any attention at all, is the fact that there is nothing in this agreement that prevents the provincial government from re-instating a provincial sales tax (PST)

in the future. So it is very possible that sometime down the road, we could be faced with a 12 per cent federal HST (it’s really the GST, only higher) plus a new provincial sales tax. With this new federal excise (indirect) tax, our provincial government, with its total lack of wisdom and foresight, has now placed its complete trust in the hands of federal government to transfer comparable revenues back to the province. I don’t know about you, but that kind of external control makes me feel uncomfortable. If we are to be stuck with the HST, we should tell the feds what Quebec told them. “If you want us to jump on the HST bandwagon, then WE will collect the (HST) and WE will make transfer payment to YOU,” or words to that effect. Makes perfect sense to me. I would urge everyone to make sure they make their voice heard by signing the official petition between April 6 and July 5, 2010. It’s time the government started listening to the people who elected them to their positions of trust, not the bureaucrats and big business behind the curtain. Grant Baudais, Kelowna

W TAXES

Anti-HST lobby wants lower gov’t spending but more services To the editor: Re: Consumption Taxes are All the Rage For Government (April 2 Capital News). Tom Fletcher’s column is one of the few grown-up comments I’ve seen about the B.C. HST. I would emphasize two substantive issues and one process issue. As he mentioned, the HST raises revenue from income tax evaders; the more they spend on highend services—mani-pedis, expensive hair treatments, heli-skiing and so on—the more tax is collected, especially compared to the extra $15 a year I’ll pay in HST on haircuts.

The second issue is that, unlike income tax, there is no refund for prior years’ consumption taxes so governments don’t have the double whammy in recessions of both lower current taxes but also refunds from capital loss and business tax loss carrybacks. The anti-HST crowd have much in common with the Tea Party rabble in the United States—the only group which answers YES to a poll which asks if they support a) lower taxes b) lower government spending and c) more government services! Bill Vander Zalm and the B.C. NDP are taking a juvenile, unprin-

cipled stand against an efficient revenue raiser needed to reduce deficits. The federal Conservatives poisoned the well—and created the federal budget deficit—by reducing the GST, a terrible policy move criticized by all tax analysts. The B.C. Liberals are in the unenviable position of implementing the HST, good policy but bad politics, necessary to prepare for higher health care spending in the next two decades. Don Miller, Nanaimo

Cut gov’t spending To the editor: Tom Fletcher says, “Scrap the HST? Sounds great, but then what?” The answer: Reduce government spending. There is much bureaucracy—ineffective, arrogant, intrusive, spendthrift. Slash it, including by eliminating laws and regulations and do-gooder functions. Yes, the big expenditure is health care, a fool’s game whose costs and failures were predicted. Keith Sketchley, Saanich

Homeopathy relies on individual treatment assessments T he word homeopathy (or homoeopathy) derives from the Greek words “homoios,” meaning like or similar, and “pathos,” meaning suffering or disease. Homeopathy is a system of medical therapeutics for treating individuals based on the principle of “similae” or “simile.” The great homeopathic principle is (in Latin) “Similia similibus curentur,” meaning “Let like be

FINDING REMEDIES

John Sherman treated by like.” Alternative medical systems are built upon complete systems of theory and practice, and often have evolved apart from and earlier than

the conventional medical approach used in North America. Homeopathy takes a different approach from conventional medicine in diagnosing, classifying and treating medical problems. Key concepts of homeopathy include: • Homeopathy seeks to stimulate the body’s defense mechanisms and processes to prevent or treat illness. • Treatment involves giv-

ing very small doses of substances called remedies that, according to homeopathy, would produce the same or similar symptoms of illness in healthy people if they were given in larger doses. • Treat the patient, not the disease. This is the most important doctrine of homeopathy. No two individuals are alike, and so the medicines used for their treatment need not be alike.

The name of the disease is not important to the homeopath who tries to get a complete picture of the patient—his symptoms, what makes the symptoms better or worse, his likes and dislikes, his environment, etc. From those answers, the homeopath arrives at the individualized remedy, called a similimum. The theory behind homeopathy is that within every human there is an energy called vital force,

which regulates the functioning of the body. Due to factors such as heredity, environmental conditions or stress, this vital force can weaken, causing disease. The homeopath makes a study of not only the symptoms the patient is complaining of, but of the entire patient himself. This leads to a picture of the patient. The homeopath then prescribes homeopathic medicine that matches this picture. Now, the medicine so prescribed would have caused the similar symptoms in a healthy person in its crude form or in large doses. This medicine is given in a highly diluted dose, to prevent side effects. This minute dose creates a similar disorder in the vital force and provokes the vital force to react to the symptoms and overcome them. This is not like vaccines, which use the same type of virus injected in small amounts into our system. While I believe that

homeopathy is much more effective than conventional medicine, the sad fact is that homeopathy has lagged behind in popularity due largely to not being funded by government health care. Another key reason is that there are very few homeopaths practicing outside of large urban centres. Homeopathy has thousands of remedies from which to choose. In a particular case, choosing just one remedy is not so easy and requires the application of great skills on the part of the homeopath.

W MLA’S REPORT

Government committed to address child poverty issues B ritish Columbians recognize the importance of cultivating strong family environments and offering children and youth the best possible opportunities to succeed. Smart investments and strategic management of resources create those opportunities. Government leveraged strategic tax cuts and provided record funding so as to tackle child poverty, increase childcare opportunities and service delivery for youth in care. This year, the province increased the basic personal income tax credit to $11,000, and has eliminated provincial income taxes for everyone earning less than $18,800 a year. This means that 325,000 British Columbians pay no provincial income taxes, leaving more money in the wallets of B.C. families. Additionally, families are also eligible to receive up to $385 per month per child through the Canada Child Tax Benefit, the B.C. Family Bonus and the Universal Child Care Benefit. These tax cuts and credits helped to reduce child poverty to the lowest rate since 1991 and this trend is predicted to continue.

sands of parents receiving help with care costs. These enhancements set working parents’ minds at ease by knowing that their children are safe and being cared for. This government is committed to seeing our youth-in-care successfully transition from government care to independ-

ence and adulthood. We’re working closely with the B.C. Federation of Youth in Care Networks. We have increased their budget to $500,000, with an additional $375,000 grant for a three-year pilot project to help in-transition youth find and keep employment.

Transitioning from government care to independence is an important step which introduces a potentially productive young adult to our society. The youth-in-transition program will benefit from $5 million to provide financial support to youth formerly in care to finish high school, learn

job and life skills, attend post-secondary school, or complete rehabilitative programs. This helps them gain an invaluable competitive edge to make their way in the world and find success. In tough times like these, we know that B.C.’s families and chil-

dren are too important to marginalize. We are succeeding in helping B.C.’s children and youth realize their full potential. For more information, please visit my website at www.benstewartmla.bc.ca. Ben Stewart is the Liberal MLA for Westside-Kelowna.

Ben Stewart Other measures in place to give our families a boost to support children and ensure a great future for B.C include the low-income Climate Action Tax Credit. This credit is paid quarterly and will be increased to $115.50 per adult and $34.50 per child next year. Childcare is an issue that affects almost everyone in our province. When a parent knows their child is in safe hands, they breathe easy while at work. That is why this year’s budget provides $26 million in new funding over three years to subsidize childcare providers and parents. In the past nine years, the number of subsidized childcare spaces has doubled to 90,000. In addition, increasing outof-school subsidies for elementary school aged children resulted in thou-

W QUESTION OF TASTE

When is blunt comedy too blunt?

A

complaint before the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal, involving an allegation tof discrimination against a stand-up comic, is attracting much attention and comment. I sense this is one case we’re going to be hearing about for a long time to come. According to the tribunal, Lorna Pardy filed a human rights complaint against comic Guy Earle and the owner of the Vancouver club (Zesty’s) at which he was performing in 2007. Pardy alleged she and her same-sex partner were “subjected to a tirade of homophobic and sexist comments” by Earle and that, as a result, she experienced harassment. Earle denied that he discriminated against Pardy (while admitting his interactions with her were heated). He said that Pardy and her companions were “loud, disruptive, and heckled the comics who performed that evening, including him.” Earle and the owner of Zesty’s applied in 2008 to have Pardy’s human rights complaint dismissed. Both applications were rejected by the tribunal. Earle and Zesty’s appealed that decision to B.C.’s Supreme Court which reportedly sent the matter back to the tribunal for reconsideration. Now, almost three years after the dustup at Zesty’s between Pardy and Earle, the tribunal appears on the verge of issuing a ruling on Pardy’s complaint. As I’ve said, the case has attracted a substantial amount of commentary and both sides have their vocal supporters. On the one hand, a casual observer might say, “She was in a comedy club—what did she expect? That’s what comics do.” On the other hand, Pardy’s supporters would assert she was entitled to enjoy the club’s services without being singled out and subjected to a “tirade” aimed squarely at her gender and her sexual persuasion. The question of whether human rights protections should extend to a setting such as a comedy club is definitely a thorny one. It’s scenarios like this which are the basis for

f

LEGAL EASE

Robert Smithson the legal truism that “hard cases make bad law.” Earle was reported, in the Globe and Mail, as saying: “The point of stand-up comedy is that you can say whatever the hell you want on stage. It’s the sharp end of a free society.” He may be attributing a little more importance to the societal role of comedians than they warrant (if barbarian hordes sweep down on us out of the hills, will anyone be relying on comedians to stem the tide with their stinging one-liners?) but his point does seem to have resonated. In my view, the commentary back and forth suggests that we simply haven’t decided, as a society, whether human rights

protections should be extended to such settings. It’s an indication that the human rights regime we’ve let loose is an evolving one in which many of the areas on the fringe have yet to be charted. One has to sympathize with the plight of the tribunal in this situation. If our society, as a whole, hasn’t decided whether human rights protections should extend to the comedy club setting, then should we expect the tribunal to be able to provide a satisfactory answer? Does the fact that Pardy was allegedly heckling Earle justify his reaction? Surely not. If patrons at comedy clubs should be prepared to be singled out, certainly comics must also expect to be heckled. In any event, I think that “She started it!” ceases to be a reliable defence once we emerge from primary school. Members of the legal profession know that hard

SURFY ACOUSTIC-FOLK act Jon and Roy slated to perform at Habitat on April 16.

CONTRIBUTOR

that have built a good reputation in the Okanagan. On the other hand, I’ve worked and attended some low-attendance shows with bands/artists that I’ve never heard of before, who have never played in Kelowna, but who just left me blown out of the water by their music. This always gets me thinking about how new artists break into new scenes. Apart from someone physically giving you a CD and telling you too listen to ks your inan artist, what sparks terest in new music?? oMy new philosophy is that one has to take a chance on Friday, April 9 – The Spirits @ The Minstrel Café music. Since the Okanagan isn’t Friday, April 9 – Sunny Wilkinson @ Kel. Community Theatre a big enough Friday, April 9 – Justin Hale @ Cabana Bar and Grille market for larger touring acts, Saturday, April 10 – Peter Mayer @ OK Mission Hall we’re a great haSaturday, April 10 - Yukon Blonde w/ In-Flight Safety @ Habitat ven for independent bands and solo Saturday, April 10 – Windborn @ Bean Scene North artists looking for a gary gig in between Calgary and Vancouver. derground While these underground artists all have their own followings, how easy is it to create a national following when you don’t have financial backing from a big record label and big box stores won’t carry your album? Recently I’ve taken over the bookings at Habitat. So now I’m always asking myself, “Who would someone pay to go see?” I know that I would attend the show because I’ve listened

How hard is it to break into the Okanagan cultural scene? I’ve touched before in this column about local talent trying to make it in their own backyard. But how does it work for touring artists? I’ve lived in Kelowna for over a year and a half and I’ve worked at Habitat for the same amount of time, so I’ve seen many out-of-town artists come and go. It seems as if most of the shows that do well are return acts

to the music, but how do I make others want to attend the show? For example, take the group Jon and Roy, making a tour stop in Kelowna on April 16. I’ve been excited about these Victoria natives coming to town ever since the show was confirmed a couple months ago. I then start telling people about my excitement and in return I’m given a blank stare. Oh right, I think to myself, no one knows who they are are. So apart from making m a pretty sho show poster, spa spamming Fac Facebook, an and directiing you to an artists’ My space, what ccan one ddo to gua guarantee a goo good turnout? Market the hell out of a show and you still can’t guarantee a good turnout for a band or artist who has never played here before. This is where the audience comes in again. Sure you’ve seen ‘Band A’ play here three times now and would probably pay to see them when they come back, but what about that new band playing on Friday—What’s their name? You’ve heard about them in passing but that’s about it. This is where I come in and say take a chance. The same could be said for any venue in town hosting a new up and coming group. For a city that wants to keep growing not only population-wise but also culturally, I think that it’s important for people to start trying new things. So I encourage you to take a chance on new music—you might just find your new favourite band.

BARENAKED LADIES: ALL IN GOOD TIME (RAISINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; RECORDS/EMI)

Jennifer Schell

Bruce SPOON RIVER: KINGDOM Mitchell OF THE BURNED (NORTHERN ELECTRIC) This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the sort of thing you expect from self-described â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nerdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rockers and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that Page got busted as the band was about to go on tour in support of their first childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s album. However, the rest of the band has continued on without missing a beat. This 11th studio album is loaded with 14 sturdy songs and I was surprised to hear the band maybe mining a few ideas from â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s Paul McCartney & Wings with songs like Summertime (think Band On The Run era), Every Subway Car and On The Lookout. The band has scored yet another hit but with a ballad and the opening song, You Run Away, which may or may not be a song of encouragement to Page (along with Golden Boy) depending on your interpretations. In spite of the reduced line-up Barenaked Ladies fans will enjoy All In Good Time. B

Spoon River are playing a gig tonight (April 7) at The Minstrel Cafe in support of their new album Kingdom Of The Burned that is getting great reviews from many different sources. The band offers roots max Americana where obvious starting points include Neil Young and Big Pink-era The Band. The latter can be heard all over this solid album while the Young influence can be heard on the Southern Man-like Emmanuel. My fave track on this standout album is Buried In The Sun that sounds like early REM if they had borrowed a little DNA from George Harrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s My Sweet Lord. Meanwhile, the ragged and rustic The Colour Of His Skin sounds like early Grateful Dead when they tended a tad more to rock and roll. For trivia fans, Spoon River were also lucky enough to score a super cool spot in the Bob Dylan bio-pic Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Not There, playing as The Band.

Should make for a fine gig with Rodney Decroo also on the bill. B+

MONICA: STILL STANDING (J RECORDS)

It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often that the very top of the album sales charts in Canada differ all that much from those in Billboard in the USA. One huge exception is this new release from R&B singer Monica who saw this first new album in four years hit No. 2 in the Stateside charts while the album barely scraped into the top 200 in Canada. Monica has enjoyed a lot of successes over the years especially with her killer hit duet with Brandy back in 1998, and The Boy Is Mine, along with other notable hits like Before You Walk Out Of My Life and For You I Will from a decade or so ago. Monica now has the No. 1 R&B hit in the USA with her lead-off single Everything To Me which has put her back in the neo-soul firmament. The rest of this disc ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t half bad either with See Mitchell B6

Chandra Estate Winery is owned and operated by Dave and Parvinder Dhillon and family, alongside friend, mentor and partner Karnail Singh Sidhu who owns Kalala Organic Winery in West Kelowna. Not hard to see the connection between the philosophies of these two organic wineriesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; both offer unique messages of peace that also represent the foundation of their strong family cultures. Chandra is self-de-

scribed as a unique fusion of culture and wine, and most importantly as an environmental stewardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; they, like Kalala, are 100 per cent organic. They, also like Kalala, have priced their wines affordably. All are under $20â&#x20AC;&#x201D;this being a sight for sore eyes to many wine lovers who enjoy not only local, but organic wine. Chandra translates from Sanskrit to Moon God. Ancient myth says that the moon stores â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somaâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;an ancient drink and lunar deity that is consumed by the gods and is said to be the elixir of immortality. Chandra, through organic earthfriendly methods, uses the natural concept of the moonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effect on plant growth and so then produces its own Soma through their wines. Formerly known as Ecovitis Vineyards, Daveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Summer, who is a big part of this family-run operation,

came up with the new name. All of the names of the wines are also poetically chosen solar-themed names. Adding that touch of mystique to the winery, the beautiful, brightly coloured labels also easily attract the eye. Opened officially last May, Chandra will be producing five wines for sale this year. Keeping their wines more exclusive, they will be producing a low volume that will primarily be available only for sale at the winery. Their vineyards, due to their high quality and organic practices, have been

suppliers to the following high-end wineries: Le Vieux Pin, Summerhill, Dirty Laundry, Township 7 and Blossom Winery. 2006 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yueâ&#x20AC;? Chardonnay $16.95 A very crisp chardonnay, with lemon-lime and apple aromas that carry through into the flavors, riding on a refreshing seam of acidity. 2007 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lunaâ&#x20AC;? Pinot Noir RosĂŠ $18.95 This 100 per cent pinot noir rosĂŠ has a beautiful and unique amber tinge to it. Lovely fruit, See Schell B6

BROKEN BELLS: (COLUMBIA)

Broken Bells is the debut collaboration between The Shins’ James Mercer and ace producer/ mixer Danger Mouse.

The latter is probably best remembered as one half of Gnarls Barkley with Cee-Lo and their one-off hit Crazy (that won a Grammy). Danger Mouse has worked with the likes of Gorillaz, Jay-Z, and Beck so you can imaging this collaboration was highly anticipated and, true to form, this self-titled CD

has made its debut in the top 20 without the benefit of a hit single. In spite of the name Broken Bells, there is no cacophony on this mellow, blissed out album of ear candy. I found this disc a little too somnambulant, listless and meandering but Rolling Stone called it “gorgeous wistful space-pop”. The mid-tempo synth pop Ghost Inside has been released as a single but titles like Vaporize and Sailing To Nowhere seem more emblematic to me. C+ bwcmitchell@shaw.ca

Oliver’s ‘Golden Mile’ Schell from B5 with a hint of smoke and leather—very intriguing! 2006 “Halo” Merlot $19.95 The Halo is Chandra’s best selling wine. Very drinkable, smooth with lots of red fruit and hits of cracked pepper—a great value at under $20! Chandra also suggests some great food pairings for their wines: • “O” 2007 Pinot Gris pairs nicely with smoked salmon, seafood, poultry, and soft cheeses. • “Yue” 2006 Chardonnay serves well with poultry, seafood, sushi, and light

desserts. • “Iah” 2004 Pinot Blanc serves well with poultry and light desserts. • “Halo” 2006 Merlot pairs well with red meats, particularly lamb and wild game, robust cheeses, pasta and curried dishes. • “Solar” 2007 Red Fusion is served best with red meats and rich sauces. • “Isis” 2006 Blaufrankisch is versatile enough to be enjoyed with many foods; refreshes the palate; light bodied, dry finish. • “Luna” 2007 Pinot Noir Rosé can be served with any menu.

Look forward to a 2010 Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc that will be added to their repertoire this year. Future plans also include expansion of the winery with a restaurant and accommodation.

W WHAT’S UP DOWNTOWN?

Many spring delights in Kelowna Jan Johnson CONTRIBUTOR

Congratulations are in order this month for MacDermott’s at 565 Bernard Ave, celebrating five years as a flagship store downtown. Wayne and Jay MacDermott moved to Kelowna in 1994 with the dream of opening their own men’s clothing store. Their dream became a reality in April 1995 and it has been a great addition to the downtown shopping scene. Inside this swanky, upbeat shop, men can find anything they need to complete their wardrobe. They carry some of the top men’s designer names like Hugo Boss, Robert Graham and even Versace. “Passion, quality and unbelievable service” are the reasons The MacDermotts give for their ongoing success. Five years ago, MacDermott’s underwent a major renovation to add more than 2,000 square feet of space to the store. They now carry a full range of shoes and boots from Hugo Boss, Kenneth Cole, Cole-Haan and more. During the renos, they also added a Tommy Bahama Shop-in-Shop which carries both men’s and ladies’ fashions with that casual yet elegant feel—the only store of its

kind in North America. Why not stop by and congratulate Wayne and Jay if you get a chance? There have been some exciting changes to downtown’s thriving dining scene in the past few months.

INSIDE THIS SWANKY, UPBEAT SHOP, MEN CAN FIND ANYTHING THEY NEED TO COMPLETE THEIR WARDROBE.

••• The excellent Indian Fusion restaurant Da Tandoor made a big move a few months back. They’re now located at 1687 Pandosy St., in a larger spot with a new attached Sports Lounge. The new restaurant is bigger with a very upscale look, and the same wonderful Indian fusion cuisine, as well as some western dishes. Owner Gurvinder Momi tells me that they still feature their mouthwatering buffet for weekday or weekend lunches, or for Tuesday night dinner. The new Sports Lounge has a casual and comfortable feel, featur-

From April 13 to 17, Theatre Rusticle brings April 14, 1912 to the Rotary Centre for the Arts.

He’s a truly amazing young Canadian who is busy making the world a better place. Can’t wait to hear what he has to say. ••• Well, have a lovely time exploring your city this month.

Will be lovingly missed not only by his immediate family, but also by nephews and nieces and many friends in both Scotland and Canada. Bobby emigrated to Kelowna, BC, Canada in 1993 to be close to the majority of his children and grandchildren. His working life in Scotland was spent as a director, then chairman, of a long-established family Scotch Whisky company. His business associations with Canada led to the building of a number of strong personal friendships throughout the country. He spent many hours on golf courses in Scotland as well as fishing Scottish rivers and always enjoyed his gardens wherever he lived, particularly in Kelowna where he nurtured and savoured his home grown fruit. Wherever he was his sense of humour was appreciated by everyone who knew him. In recent years, his love of fishing extended to organizing regular fishing adventures for many of his family on Canada’s west coast. These trips will remain as very happy memories for all who took part in them. Many family and friends were also lucky enough to attend his weekly ‘Sunday lunch’ tradition which showed his strong commitment to keeping his family close to him and one another.

PEARCE, DOUGLAS ROLAND Lt. Col., DFM, CD, QC RCAF (Retired)

Passed away on April 5, 2010 after a short illness. Douglas was born January 14, 1920 in Edmonton, AB to Harry and Emma Pearce. Doug was baptized into the Lutheran faith in Edmonton and confirmed on May 13, 1934 at St. Peters Lutheran Church, Edmonton. He spent his youth in Edmonton prior to WWII and proceeded overseas with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941. He flew with 435 Squadron (RCAF), 78 and 617 Squadrons (RAF) Bomber Command during WWII. Returning from Europe in 1944 he married Frances McNeill in Edmonton in 1947 and remained in the Air Force as a career officer. Doug served in many parts of Canada and overseas on flying and staff duties during the next thirty years, until his retirement from the military in 1971 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Upon retirement he accepted a position with the Finance Office of the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, ON where he remained until 1981 when he and Fran moved to the Okanagan, initially to Carrs Landing and finally to Kelowna in 1990. Doug was an active member at First Lutheran serving as Church Treasurer for five years in the mid-eighties, as an Elder for a number of years, and on various church boards and committees. Always interested in community affairs, he and his wife Fran were involved with setting up the Fire Department and building a fire hall at Carrs Landing. He served 12 years as Treasurer of Lutheran Camp Concordia Society and again with wife Fran was quite involved in establishing the Okanagan Camp and Retreat Centre in Westbank. Doug was predeceased by his parents Harry and Emma Pearce, by two older brothers Harry (Kay) and Rev. Dr. E. George Pearce (Ida), and a younger sister Gertrude (Gordon) Vikse. He is survived by a sister Edna (Harry) Paterson and brother Lloyd (Doreen) Pearce all of Edmonton, AB. Doug and Fran were blessed with three wonderful children: Douglas (Ruth) Pearce of Lake Country, BC, Judith (James) Freer of Sherwood Park, AB and Kimberly (Harold) Schroeter of Simcoe, ON. He also leaves seven loving grandchildren: Natasha (Michael) Bell of Didsbury, AB, Christopher (Colette) Pearce of Edson, AB, Patrick Freer of Vancouver, BC, Gregory and Kelly Freer of Sherwood Park, AB, Erik Schroeter of Simcoe, ON, Courtney (Shawn) Morin of Guelph, ON respectively and four great grandchildren: Kailyn and Mitchell Bell, Joshua Pearce and Jamie Morin. A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, April 8th at 6:30 pm at First Lutheran Church, 4091 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna, BC with Pastor Keith Reisdorf officiating. Memorial gifts may be made to the Rev. Dr. E. George Pearce Memorial Endowment Fund, Concordia Lutheran Seminary, 740 Ada Boulevard, Edmonton, AB or to a charity of choice. By way of explanation, the endowment fund exists to provide financial assistance to our student pastors in training at the seminary.

ect or peer-impacted funding deficits or lower donations and private contributions. With the Kelowna Drop-in Centre now closed, Basic Needs Listing has been created to remind Central Okanagan residents of the resources offered for some of our vulnerable residents during this time of transition. “As our local service providers (shrink), the clientele they assist and our communities at large continue to be impacted by announcements of program and/or resource closures during these economically challenging times,” said Christene Walsh, drug policy coordinator with the Regional District of Central Okanagan. “Our communities unfortunately experienced a similar era of cut-backs in 2001. “What’s different today is that previous hardship has taught us to network—communicate and work together to our best ability so to ensure anyone identified as being in need will continue to be heard and receive available assistance. “Fortunately, our local communities have some very skilled, astute organizations, such as Kelowna’s Gospel Mission which is a key resource in the Basic Needs Listing. “These organizations are continuing to work hard to maintain a solid level of service during these difficult times.” Local communities have also demonstrated a commitment to continue working together to manage yet another period of transition, added Walsh. “I’ve recently heard of at least five organizations that have or will need to eliminate valued positions by March 31,” she said “And, the level of professionalism and assistance offered by the employees impacted during this period of unimaginable stress is commendable and deserves to be acknowledged. “One of the key roles of the regional district drug policy coordinator is to promote ongoing communication and collaboration among service providers. “Again, this action is a strong example of our community’s commitment to work together and address any concern that may arise in order to ensure a safe and strong community for everyone.” Service providers and members of the public interested in learning about programs and services available can call 250763-8008 or go online to www.kcr.ca.
