Dirt bikers’ views may stir up controversy Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER
Motorized off-road proponents are prepared for more fireworks after they hold a grand opening of new sustainable dirt bike and ATV trails this Saturday. Okanagan Trail Riders’ Association president Ken Umbarger said despite efforts to build trails that respect watercourses in the Bear Creek watershed over the past three years, opposition to their efforts surfaces on a continual basis. “There is a lot of pushback and fear mongering. There was a lot of bad press just last year. It’s been an uphill battle all the way,” he commented. The District of West Kelowna, Lakeview Irrigation District and Interior Health are among those that have expressed concerns about the impacts that trail development could have on drinking water sources in the watershed, like Bald Range Creek. In response to those organizations’ concerns, the provincial government placed a moratorium on development in the Bear Creek watershed over the winter, pending outcome of an environmental study,
Umbarger said. The watershed supplies drinking water to 4,800 household and business connections in the Shannon Lake, Rose Valley and Lakeview Heights neighbourhoods of West Kelowna. Umbarger mentioned, at the May 15 press conference, he planned to release findings from the study, which the B.C. Ministry of Tourism, Sports and the Arts funded. The press conference is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. at the eight-kilometre mark of Bear Main Forest Service Road. Umbarger said he believes the study will shed light on the development of a sustainable trail network in the area and its impacts on water quality and the environment in general. “I have some interesting information to put forward to basically dispel some of the stuff said before. There will be some fireworks,” he said. “Let’s just say we’re going to be shedding light on what we’ve been saying all along and shining a light on those making negative public comments about what we’re trying to See Views A2

W CONDO SALES
Pricing still a key to real estate rebound Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR
Atop one of this city’s few posh highrises, B.C.’s reluctantly named Condo King explained what it’s going to take to breathe life into the local real es-
tate market. “A miracle is not going to happen—we are not going to go back to 2002 to 2008 again,” said real estate marketer Bob Rennie, adding success in today’s market will take the right combination of lay-
outs, sizes and above all else, proper pricing. New units at InVue, for example, are being sold at 40 per cent off what the going rate was during boom times, and that cut is what’s finally luring some buyers out
of their home-purchasing comas. But not everyone is interested. Many prospective home buyers are gun shy after a hard year for either themselves, or their friends, which left them hemorrhaging
cash from failed investments. “When you look at the way the baby boomers changed and the ways they’re shopping—they’re not taking risks,” said the condo marketer, who has

and that’s what led to the over-supplied condo market that’s plaguing Okanagan developers today. Units not focused on local needs were constructed in one of the worst recessions in recent history and that’s led to hundreds of new condos
remaining finished, unsold and vacant. Now the Okanagan is laden with an Alberta-centric product in an Albertan free market—a far cry from what’s happening in the Lower Mainland. “We have foreign money. The Olympics
was a $6-billion branding campaign for British Columbia and Vancouver lives off that and benefits off that the most,” he said. Rennie added that it’s the Chinese, Iranians, Koreans and generally rich people from across the globe who have gravitat-
ed to Vancouver to invest their cash. “You guys had Albertans and Vancouverites— we have so many more eyes looking at us.” Vancouver is also benefitting from the fact that its developers pulled stakes faster when faced

with a crashing economy. “Our developers really ran to the sidelines faster…or maybe it was the magnitude of the developments we have there that caused the banks to pull out faster,” he said. “You have your master developments, but also a lot of smaller ones.” Rennie predicts that the glut of properties will dissipate once the A quality units are off the market.

do and showing they were dead wrong.” Umbarger said a copy of the report would be available at the press conference. He stated he hoped his group could soon get back to building its network, which could serve as an example for the whole province. “I feel like the province of British Columbia has to come out of the dark ages. This province is one of the last jurisdictions in the world to have a managed motorized recreation area.” According to Umbarger, the trail riders’ association should be able to continue its work because it’s already proven it could go great lengths to build sustainable trails that steer riders over or away from creeks. In the most contentious case, where the trail crossed Bald Range Creek, volunteers laid down crush gravel on sloped paths to prevent erosion and constructed a bridge to take dirt bike and all-terrain vehicle riders over the waterway. “It was hugely important to do that because a lot of our detractors said we couldn’t have a crossing in that watershed, which is preposterous, considering 500 metres away on a forestry road a crossing exists.” To date, the dirt bikers have built 125 kilometres of sustainable trails, Umbarger said. Those who want to see the trails will be offered tours on all-terrain vehicles this weekend after the press conference, said Umbarger. The trail riders’ president said he also plans to release new details on enforcement initiatives in the Bear Creek watershed, a 2010 work plan and funding. firstname.lastname@example.org

Pushing to keep affordable housing at the forefront Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR
Concerns over affordable rental housing in Kelowna seemingly fell to the wayside when the job and real estate market crashed. Several hundred newly built condominium units sat on the market unsold and investors, loath to lose another cent, became landlords, freeing up the city’s previously stretched supply and boosting the vacancy rate from zero to three per cent. But that shift between supply and demand isn’t slated to last forever, so key members of the business community have continued their push to put affordable housing top of mind among key members of
the federal government, said Weldon LeBlanc the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce’s CEO. It’s something they’ve been hammering away at for years now, and the fact that it’s a long-term goal without immediate buy-in has caused some frustration. “For us it’s just about keeping the matter alive,” he said, fresh off a visit to Ottawa where the issue was tabled with senior government officials. “We had some productive talks…and walked away with some great options we could pursue that reinforced that we were going in the right direction.” Among their recommendations to the federal and provincial government was creat-
ing a tax incentive that would prompt developers to look at rental developments as a viable option. “We have to make it attractive to build…if we don’t they’re going to go in different areas,” he said. Currently there’s one rental building on Highway 97 being rolled out in phases, and another in Rutland. Once completed, those should add just over 260 rental units to the city’s supply of rental housing, but there needs to be more, said LeBlanc and to get that to happen, governments need to step in. “With the downturn, the condos that were for sale went as rentals,” he said. “When the economy improves those units will go back
for sale and we’ll have a slim vacancy rate again, so we need to keep putting on the pressure.”| It’s something Theresa Eichler, the City of Kelowna’s community planning manager, agrees with, although she stressed that there’s a big difference between availability and affordability for a renter in this city. “If you have lots of money there’s no problem anymore,” she said. “But if you have a limitation on your income there’s a problem.” Average rents for a new two bedroom condos in this city come in at about $1,200, while a similarly-sized unit in an older building is about $900. The former, she noted, is
not quite on par with what’s deemed affordable. Eichler explained that the hard to define term affordable simply comes down to matching rents to wages. A healthy ratio sees 30 per cent of the average pre-tax income dedicated to shelter. With the median wage for couples in this city being $35,680 that makes $892 affordable for a two bedroom home. The median wage for a single person in this section of the valley is $23,360 which means a one bedroom or studio suite is considered affordable if it’s about $584. Eichler explained that affordable is considered the lowend of market housing and it and social housing are completely different issues, al-
though they’re often lumped into the same category. And while both issues need attention, she agrees that there needs to be constant pressure on governments to make a commitment to dealing with the issues in whatever form they arise. “Federal and provincial governments need to make larger commitments to affordable housing,” she said. “It’s not going to improve in the conventional marketplace or with municipal governments.” Rental housing in the valley is just one issue that Eichler will be examining as she and the Housing Committee look to re-evaluate their strategy, which will include everything from purchased properties to social housing.
W TECH BUSINESS
New firm scores $2 million deal Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER
One of the first two companies to start up in Kelowna’s new tech incubator has signed a multimillion dollar deal with the European security company, Astaro Internet Security. The contract is worth over $2 million and represents a major coup for the firm, whose CEO, Jason Richards, says Vineyard Networks is now 40 per cent ahead of growth targets for this year. Vineyard designs ways for businesses to prioritize their web traffic, ensuring business and missioncritical web use takes priority over things like employee Facebook time. “…If you think of it like cars on a highway and the highway starts to get backed up, we’re going to ensure the ambulance gets through,” Richards ex-
plained. This form of network problem solving is very competitive, but Vineyard is targeting a rather specific niche of small to medium-sized businesses they’re hoping will set them apart. Their first deals with Astaro, which will see $60 million in revenue this year, and Blue Coat Technology, which will do $700 million this year, suggest the application has a fairly wide potential clientele. And their approach has caught the attention of Network World. The magazine named the Okanagan company among its Top 10 Startups to Watch this past January, making it the only Canadian company on the list. “It’s like the Vogue magazine of networking,” said Martin Yuill, director of the ORIC, the tech incubator where Vineyard
got its start. The recognition was huge for the company and Richards said they have been turning away major investors in the wake of the article. Meantime, the company is now likely ready to leave the incubator, having reached profitability, and this next step has presented some concerns about how Kelowna’s tech sector is developing. Recruiting for several positions with plans to hit 20 people locally and open a sales-focused subsidiary office in the Silicon Valley, Richards said his biggest problem is that local talent he may want to employ doesn’t always know companies like his are out there. Right now the tech sector’s success seems to be “flying under the radar,” from his perspective, and he believes it’s time to start putting more
emphasis on letting residents of Kelowna know about some of the success stories in their own backyard. According to information compiled by the Central Okanagan Development Commission, for example, Disney Online Studios, which owns Club Penguin, now outstrips Tolko Industries for the number of people it employees. QHR Technologies was named among the Top 10 Growth Companies on the Branham 300 this year and RackForce includes IBM on its client list. Richards, who serves as president of the Okanagan Science and Technology Council, said he is concerned post-secondary graduates coming out of school this spring may not be looking in Kelowna for jobs first. He wants to get the

Caldwell’s grandfather did not want his daughter to go to residential school, so the family hid her. The police took her grandfather away instead. He spent six days in jail.

began to emerge. In June 2008, the federal government made a formal apology for the residential schools. Caldwell’s mother never lived to see it, having passed away the year before. In Westbank, close to 30 per cent of the people who went to residential schools were rounded up and taken. Caldwell said a cattle truck would come by in late August to gather the children, with the excrement of cattle still in it. The St. Mary’s Indian Residential School in Cranbrook opened in 1898 and closed in 1970. Caldwell said the effects of the schools are still felt today in the Westbank First Nation. One of the forum organizers, Dr. Adam Jones, noted the residential schools in Canada are a close-range example of genocide. He pointed out one of the ways people often try to deal with the subject is by saying it only happens far away, to others not connected with them. Jones pointed out the residential schools produced death rates of 30 to 40 per cent per year, comparable to the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. Children perished from tuberculosis, abuse and severe psychological trauma. Dr. Adam Jones said the study of genocide is an interdisciplinary subject area that brings a person into direct contact with a plethora of histories around the world. He noted students of the subject often come into the field with a strong dimension of activism.

Jones said genocide education is part of a movement in education that has been gaining strength. He noted the forums are held for area high school students with the hope of creating a citizenry that will play a part in making sure these kinds of things do not happen in the future. “We want to prevent future genocides.” Jones added that scholars in the field want to remember and validate genocides that have occurred in the past and educate people about them. They try to identify pre-conditions for genocide in current societies. The word genocide was created by legal scholar Raphael Lemkin in 1944. Jones said Lemkin saw there were laws against murder of individuals, but no laws to prevent governments from targeting minority groups. “We didn’t have a word for it.” Jones said Lemkin lobbied for a new law against the phenomenon he had isolated. The United Nations articles against genocide were created in 1948, and are still in effect today. Jones said the criteria outline not only the physical extermination of a group of people, but also the creation of structural conditions where such an extermination is likely to occur in the future. Such moves can be actions that work to undermine the bonds of cultural solidarity of a minority group, including the forcible transfer of children away from their families. firstname.lastname@example.org

Gravel pit opposition spreads to Lake Country residents Jason Luciw
A North Westside resident is finding allies across the lake, in Carr’s Landing

and Okanagan Centre in Lake Country, in her fight against a proposed gravel pit in her community. North Westside Ratepayers’ Association vicepresident Diane Baldwin said that she believes the Westbank First Nation’s proposed quarry, on a site 27 kilometres up Westside Road, will have negative impacts in her neighbourhood and across Okanagan Lake as well. She said she has been contacting Carr’s Landing and Okanagan Centre residents to express matters, which Baldwin believes may be of mutual concern, including potential visual and environmental scars on the landscape. “I frankly find it hard to believe there will not be some visible evidence of this gravel pit,” said Baldwin, in response to sug-
gestions from those who believe the pit will be out of sight and out of mind because it’s located in a geographical bowl. Baldwin added that people living across the lake in Lake Country should also join in expressing concerns about noise. “I think it is only one mile across the lake and a body of water amplifies sound as anyone who lives on the lake knows. A crusher produces a very constant, loud noise.” Baldwin also commented that dust could travel over from the Westbank First Nation pit, impacting residents living as far away as Lake Country. “The winds along Westside Road come from the west and from the east. They are constant and strong.”
Baldwin said she has been busily gathering signatures on petitions and writing letters in opposition to the gravel pit in order to submit them to the B.C. government before a May 31 deadline. Meanwhile, Lake Country Coun. Alice Rees, who represents the ward of Okanagan Centre, and Coun. Barbara Leamont, the Carr’s Landing ward representative, raised the concerns about visual scarring, noise and dust at a council meeting last week, after receiving calls and emails from constituents who were upset about the proposed pit. Rees said that the District of Lake Country would be powerless to stop the pit and council expressed disappointment that it had not received a referral for comments on
the quarry from the government. Rees said if the gravel pit permit were approved she would like to see tight controls placed on the quarry operations to ensure as little impact as possible on residents in her community. She said her council agreed that Mayor James Baker should bring up residents’ concerns before the Central Okanagan Regional District board, because directors there had already sought information on the quarry application so they could submit comments regarding the proposal. Unfortunately, planners at the regional district said they have not received a referral on the gravel pit from the B.C. government for the board’s consideration at this time.
Therefore, the regional board would be ill equipped to comment on the permit at its May 17 board meeting, which would be the last opportunity to discuss the application before the province’s May 31 submission deadline. The WFN and its partner, Canadian Aggregates Inc., have applied to the B.C. Ministry of Mines to haul up to 249,000 metric tonnes per year from a 50-hectare property, located 27 kilometres up Westside Road. Approximately 40 gravel truck trips per day would be required along Westside Road to haul that much material from the pit, according to a permit application made to the B.C. Ministry of Mines. email@example.com

Pin pad fraud accomplice jailed Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER
A Montreal man described as playing a “peripheral” role in an alleged pin pad fraud scheme was handed another 50 days in jail yesterday as he was sentenced in Kelowna on a charge of fraudulent concealment. Mahmoud Alieh, 28, was involved in the swapping of a pin pad at a business called Simply Delicious last month, the court heard in a joint submission, and was later stopped by police as he drove a car. Police then searched his hotel room and found equipment capable of compromising pin pads and enabling the collection of debit and credit card information. Defence lawyer Grant Gray said Alieh, a restau-
rant worker, was “recruited” to participate in the alleged scheme and that he played a minor role. “His involvement has been peripheral,” said Gray. Alieh was given credit for 40 days for the time he has already served in custody, and was ordered to serve another 50 days. That jail term will be followed by 18 months probation, which includes conditions to stay out of B.C., not contact his coaccused and not possess credit cards or identification except those in his name. As well, he is not allowed to possess any instrument, device or computer program/application capable of or intended to be used to covertly intercept or transmit credit card data. Charges of possessing
credit card forging instruments and possessing a device to obtain computer services were stayed. Meanwhile, one of his co-accused, 21-yearold Khaled Ibrahim, also appeared briefly in court Tuesday, where lawyer Clarke Burnett put over the case to Monday “to see if we can resolve it.” Ibrahim faces a raft of charges, including 12 counts of fraudulent concealment stemming from incidents in Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, Richmond, North Vancouver, Whistler, Langley, Surrey and Abbotsford. He’s also charged with two counts of possessing credit card forging instruments and possession of a device to obtain computer services, and remains in custody. Another accused, 26year-old Sami Rais, has
been released on $25,000 cash bail, plus a surety. He’s charged with two counts of fraudulent concealment, two counts of possessing credit card forging instruments and possession of a device to obtain computer services. He’s scheduled to return to court May 27. As well, court records show charges have been laid against two new individuals. Ana Rozankovic, 31, and Norair Baharian, 30, are charged along with Ibrahim for three of the counts of fraudulent concealment in Kelowna, as well as charges of fraudulent concealment in Vernon and Penticton. Court records don’t indicate any court dates for that duo.

Guilty plea given for vet’s fatal accident Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER
A Kelowna man charged in connection with the traffic death of a Korean war veteran will be sentenced next month. Dwayne Edward Munk, who was 33 at the time of his arrest earlier this year, has pleaded guilty to charges of failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing bodily harm, theft and uttering threats. His other charges of
dangerous driving causing death, possession of stolen property and another count of uttering threats are expected to be stayed at sentencing, said defence lawyer David Johnson. Munk was arrested Feb. 19, some seven months after 78-year-old Arthur Horton was struck and killed by a vehicle as he walked along Sexsmith Road. A passing motorist found Horton’s body at 5 a.m. on July 18, an estimated three hours after
the crash, and police located the stolen vehicle involved in the collision, a Pontiac 6000 taken from
West Kelowna, two days later. Sentencing for Munk is set for June 24.

Police are sending a clear message that aftermarket appliqué window tinting isn’t allowed, and say they will be cracking down on drivers with illegally tinted windows. “Unlike a factory glass tint, the appliqué tint/film does not diminish the level or the degree of UV light regardless of external atmospheric or light conditions,” said Staff Sgt. Al
Dengis, the RCMP officer in charge of traffic services in Kelowna. “This creates an unsafe driving condition as eye to eye contact cannot be effectively established between motorists and other road users, and this greatly reduces the ability of the driver to see what is happening around them as they drive. “The absence and in-

Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER
Police believe two men who forced their way into a Rutland home and assaulted two people on Saturday were looking for drugs. Just before 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, a 39-year-old woman answered a knock on the door of her Perry Road home and encountered two men who forced their way inside and assaulted her. “The woman was struck in the face,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “She was also shoved up against the wall violently.” Another resident, a 51-year-old man, was also struck in the face, but he was able to retreat to his bedroom and call 911. After a short time, police say, the suspects left empty handed. “Police investigation revealed that the residence was known for drug activities and that the suspects were likely looking for drugs inside the residence,” said Holmes. Police do not have a lot of information about the suspects, other than the fact that one of the suspects was larger than the other. A neighbourhood inquiry found that a white mini van was seen in front of the Perry Road home prior to the incident. RCMP are asking anyone who may have information about the incident to call them at 250-7623300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Water rationing step puzzling Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER
It may be the law in municipalities from the blustery, wet weathered coast to Kelowna’s very own neighbour municipality across the lake, but odd/even watering schedules still had Kelowna city council stumped Monday. City staff were not able to give any exact data on whether requiring homeowners to water on odd days of the month, if they have an odd house number, and even, if they have an even house number, actually reduces water consumption. “That’s what we’re going to find out,” said Don Degen, city staff member, when asked if the practice will save the resource or not. He suggested the Rutland irrigation district has been using the system and has reduced water consumption, but went no further, though municipalities throughout the province have used the system for years suggesting measurable
data would be available. And at least one city councillor wasn’t having any of it, as Andre Blanleil suggested he believes the entire program will prove a communications boondoggle, too complicated for anyone to understand. “This is a disaster for the public,” he said. “Most people water at night. How are you going to police that, honestly?” Blanleil went on to suggest he couldn’t see where restricting the days people water really would change the amount consumed. “If you water every day for five minutes or every other day for 30 minutes or every third day for 35 minutes is there any difference in water (used)?” he asked. In response, Degen told him a contract WaterSmart team will be on hand to reset automated sprinkler systems free of charge to make the adjustment for residents. But Blanleil was not finished— he asked how many residents have automated sprinklers and was told
by city staff the number is negligible. The municipality has declared a mild drought condition, moving straight to the second stage of a new drought management plan adopted Monday. The plan offers a five-tier approach to dealing with years like the 2009-2010 winter where precipitation was limited. It begins with restrictions like the odd/even system, which will be in place even under normal circumstances when precipitation levels are stable, and moves to total elimination of outdoor watering, limits on agricultural water use and golf courses. Both Mayor Sharon Shepherd and Coun. Angela Reid suggested they were not entirely comfortable with the way golf courses were treated in relation to agriculture, noting golf courses should see water restrictions before the farms producing food, though the plan places them at similar restriction points on the schedule.

W DRAGON’S DEN
Sex shop owner to make her pitch Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR
The Dragons are wild about Wild Kingdom— at least the popular Canadian television program’s producers seem to be. Kim Williams, who owns two Wild Kingdom adult products stores, one in Kelowna and one in West Kelowna has been invited to tape a pitch on the CBC TV program Dragon’s Den. If successful, her appearance could air in the fall. Williams, who has operated her Kelowna store for the last 12 years and opened a new store in West Kelowna one year ago, said her plan is to franchise her business to smaller Canadian communities based on the store model she used in West Kelowna. “It’s just gorgeous inside, people feel very comfortable,” said Williams about the store. “It’s tastefully done. I don’t have blow-up dolls hanging from the ceiling.” Williams, along with
KimWilliams several other would-be presenters from this area made initial pitches to representatives of the program in March when producers came to town for one day looking for participants. According to the show’s producers, Williams pitch was not the only one accepted from here but will make it to the next level. When contacted in Toronto on Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the show could not give details about who the other local participants are who will also tape pitches in Toronto. But she said taping a segment does not auto-
matically mean it will air on the next season of the program. That season will be shown in the fall. She told the Capital News that while all participants invited to Toronto will have their pitches taped as they present to the Dragons—four wealthy businesspeople looking to invest in new and unique business opportunities— some will not be shown publicly. The spokeswoman said participants are told three weeks before the air date if their presentation will air. Williams said she’s excited to have made it this far. She will fly to Toronto next weekend and tape her pitch on May 19. Until the segment airs, she will be sworn to secrecy about the outcome. “I’m very honoured to have been chosen from the thousands who auditioned (from across Canada),” she said. Williams has been in the adult product sales business for 31 years, having started in Calgary and
Banff before moving to Kelowna. In addition to wanting to franchise her business, she said she also plans to change its name to Sensual Kingdom from Wild Kingdom. The company’s website address is already sensualkingdom.com. Williams said now that the sale of adult toys and lingerie is “very mainstream” and with people concerned about Internet security to make purchases, the time is right for her to branch out with her business. “A lot of people don’t want to shop on the Net, They want to touch and feel a product.” She calls her stores a “sensual shopping experience” and “an adventure for adults.” Williams opened her West Kelowna store one year ago during one of the worst economic times in history but said despite that, business has been good. “People said I was crazy but I didn’t think so,” Williams said. “Even in hard economic times, people make room for small pleasures for themselves.” While the 1,050-square-foot West Kelowna store currently has a much more upscale feel than the downtown Kelowna store, Williams said she plans to renovate the latter at some point. The Kelowna store is about one-third larger than its West Kelowna counterpart. But for now, Williams is focusing on her pitch to the Dragons. She has been doing her homework, watching previous pitches to learn the types of questions the Dragons ask, how best to present her idea and what works when seeking their cash. If successful, they could offer to buy her business. “I just want to get a deal done,” said Williams. email@example.com

Dodge says road to prosperity faces serious obstacles Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR
While Canada’s economy may be on the rebound from the recession, the former governor of the Bank of Canada says government faces enormous challenges in the next de-
cade juggling government service needs with a budget demand to reduce spending. David Dodge said potential economic growth in Canada will be conflicted by increasing health care costs and limited increases for tax revenues.
“We face an enormous fiscal challenge and by in large I don’t think people recognize how big it is going to be,” said Dodge. Dodge compared the next decade to the 1990s, saying while two decades ago the public made the rational choice and sup-

ported change, going forward it will be even tougher because there are no government services left to “squeeze.” “We will need to make structural changes. We talk about finding ways to increase public sector productivity but in 20 years we have not done that,” said Dodge. “If we restrain expenditure the public expectations of service must go down.” Dodge made his remarks during a speech he gave in Kelowna last week as part of the UBC Okanagan Distinguished Speaker series About 800 people turned out to hear Dodge’s perspectives on the global financial crisis, Canada’s debt and possible fixes to the currently troubled world economy. Dealing with the “hangover” from the recession is now the priority
David Dodge for Canada’s government, said Dodge. “I think not as much progress as should have been made has been. It is an enormous task to work with the guts of an effective system going forward.” The “shadow banking” sector earned a double barreled prescription from Dodge. He said the Over The Counter dealers of obscure debt instruments need to be brought into a marketplace that provides
reasonable symmetry of information for buyers and sellers in a structure that has a level of stability. “The idea would be to trade on organized exchanges,” he explained. He wryly admitted objections to the approach. “The problem was not only that the marketplace was opaque, but also wildly profitable. The guys who made the big dollars would lose that ability to make big profits.” Still, the problem of capital for banks looms as an even larger structural problem for banks and the global economy. The ability of banks to put money aside when times are good, in expectation of when times turn bad, must also be solved, said Dodge. “We spent 10 years at the Basel Accord meetings and didn’t get it right. Now we have to go
through it again.” In Canada, Dodge believes the banking sector will see through the rough global situation. Of great concern to the former deputy minister of finance is the ratio of national and provincial debt to GDP and the coming demographic shift. Speaking after the event, Dodge said that in conversations with provincial finance ministers across the country they recognize the need to deal with upcoming problems. “It is better to do it early and avoid an even larger problem.” When asked about the upcoming skilled labour shortage, especially in the trades, Dodge described the situation as “a classic structural problem. It is quite serious and the lack of appropriate training will restrict our growth in the future.”

Patio furniture went flying and a man was assaulted before a fast food restaurant customer barricaded himself in his car for at least an hour during an incident yesterday. RCMP were called to the A&W on Lakeshore Road around 11 a.m. on Tuesday after a 50-yearold man walked into the restaurant and became irate with an employee. He then went outside and began tossing the restaurant’s patio furniture around, said Const. Steve Holmes. “The manager went outside to speak to the man, who then turned his wrath on the manager, pushing him up against the building,” Holmes added. When police arrived, the man had locked himself inside his parked vehicle, which was running. Officers boxed the vehicle in as officers tried to

talk to the suspect, who was in the passenger seat. They also found the man’s mother, who came to the parking lot and told officers he suffered from a diagnosed mental health condition and was not taking his medication. The man allowed his mom to turn off the vehicle’s engine, and officers spent the next hour talking to the man, who eventually left his vehicle voluntarily. The man was arrested under the Mental Health Act and taken to hospital for an evaluation. Holmes said the manager was unhurt and said that, due to the circumstances, the man police arrested will not be facing an assault charge.

A Kelowna RCMP officer detains one of four men in a field near a makeshift campsite on the edge of Mission Creek Regional Park near Benvoulin and Springfield on Friday afternoon. The situation started with a complaint filed by a woman, believed to be in her 40s, who claimed she had been sexually assaulted and that a weapon had been used. Nearly a dozen police cars descended on the scene and chased down four men, who have since all been released. The investigation into the complaint is continuing.

Coyotes vie for college title Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
“Peaking at the right time” might be an overused cliché in sports, but Geoff White feels it has plenty of merit when referring to his Okanagan Coyotes. OC won five of its last six regular season games as the club heads into the Canadian College Baseball Conference cham-
pionship tournament this weekend in Kamloops. “We’re going into the last weekend playing our best baseball of the season,” said White, the Coyotes’ head coach. “The guys are confident and feeling pretty good about themselves right now. I think (the championship) is up for grabs and we match up well with any team.” The Coyotes open
play Friday night against Thompson Rivers University. The Prairie Baseball Academy from Lethbridge and Vancouver Island University will also compete in the four-team round robin format, with the top two clubs to battle for CCBC title on Sunday. OC is coming off its second straight Larry Walker Division title. The Coyotes ripped first place

away from VIU on the last weekend of the regular season, beating the Mariners in three of four games at Elks Stadium. On Saturday, the Coyotes (12-9) opened the series with a 7-1 win as Rob Alskne scattered six hits over seven innings. Bryce Wilkie paced the offense with two hits and two RBIs. In Game 2, Kiefer Rodway went seven solid innings on three hits as the Coyotes dumped VIU 5-1. Pete Tollenaar earned the save with two hitless innings of relief. On Sunday, OC wrapped up the title with a 5-4 win over as Wilkie delivered a walk-off hit and RBI. Blake Young went the distance on the hill. In a meaningless series finale, VIU (15-13) beat OC 12-2. “The last game got away from us, but overall it was a great way for the guys to finish off,” added White. “They played solid baseball, they can be proud of that, and hopefully it carries over into Kamloops.” Spencer Kilpatrick led the Coyotes in hitting during the regular season with aV 384 average, while Adam Parliament was first in RBIs with 17. Blake Young had the best ERA at 1.69, while Rob Alskne was the wins leader with three. Following the CCBC season finale, Geoff White and at least eight of the current Coyotes will turn their attention to the Kelowna Jays. The Jays will enter the Pacific International League for 2010, opening the campaign at home to the Coquitlam Angels on Saturday, May 23 at Elks. firstname.lastname@example.org

THE VERNON VIPERS celebrate their second straight RBC Cup national junior A hockey title.
W JUNIOR A HOCKEY
Vipers repeat national champs Graeme Corbett CONTRIBUTOR
Good, better, best. That was the natural progression of the Vernon Vipers’ play at the Royal Bank Cup this week in Manitoba, culminating in an 8-1 drubbing of the host Dauphin Kings in the championship game Sunday afternoon at Credit Union Place. The Vipers are the first team to repeat as national junior A hockey champions since the Vernon Lakers accomplished the feat in 1990 and ‘91. “They should be proud of themselves, and the fans of Vernon should be very proud of these kids because it wasn’t easy. They’ve had a target on their back all year and they just kept getting better and better as the year went on,” said Vipers’ head coach Mark Fern-
er, piloting his club to its second title in just three years behind the bench. With the Kings having to grind out a win over the physical La Ronge Ice Wolves in the late semifinal Saturday night (Vernon stopped the Brockville Braves 2-0 in the afternoon semi), Ferner suspected there might be an opportunity to take advantage of a tired opponent. “That’s why we wanted to push the pace real early and just make sure we get a good jump in this hockey game. And our guys responded,” he said. The Vipers took advantage of a lethargiclooking Kings squad from the outset, controlling the play and keeping the Dauphin defenders on their heels with a blinding forecheck. Cory Kane, using a defenceman as a screen, pegged Vernon to a 1-0
lead with a quick blast from the the high slot at 14:28 of the first period. Rookie Dylan Walchuck’s winner at 6:28 of the second period marked the start of a three-goal spree over a 48-second span that the Kings never recovered from. A pair of carbon-copy goals just nine seconds apart by Vernon Game MVP Kellen Jones and Cole Ikkala had the Kings reeling, and the home crowd stunned. Bryce Lamb pocketed the Kings’ lone goal midway through the second period, but the Vipers fired four unanswered goals to seal the win before 2,260 fans. Patrick McGillis, Sahir Gill, Jones and Garrett Noonan, with a rocket from the face-off circle, completed the Vernon assault. See Vipers A18

Kelowna’s Elmore wins women’s 10km Vancouver Sun Run The first time was a charm for Malindi Elmore. In her inaugural try at the Vancouver Sun Run, the Kelowna athlete was
the first woman to finish the 10 km race in 33 minutes six seconds. Edmonton triathlete Paula Findlay was second to Elmore, 54 seconds be-
hind. The 30-year-old Elmore is the 2009 Canadian 10 K and 1,500-metre champ. She competed in the
2004 Olympic Games in Athens, but a foot injury prevented her from qualifying for the 2008 Games in Beijing. Kip Kangogo from
Lethbridge was first overall among the more than 39,000 Sun Run finishers with a time of 29:02. In addition to Elmore, one other Kelowna runner
was an age group winner. Cindy Rhodes captured the women’s 50 to 54 division in 39:52. Other top-35 age group results for Kelow-

Netminder Graeme Gordon recorded 23 saves for the win, his best when he slid cross-crease to deny sniper Shane Luke on an odd-man rush early in the second period. “I can’t wait to celebrate with the boys, it’s been an unreal two seasons,” said Gordon. “I gotta thank Ferns for bringing me here and I gotta thank Duncan (Wray, Vipers’ owner) and the staff. “Repeat champions, that’s the best way to close it out, I don’t know what more to say.”

W SENIOR LACROSSE
Raiders get another crack at ‘Rocks The Kelowna Raiders will look to make amends for a season-opening loss to the Armstrong Shamrocks when clubs face off Friday night in Armstrong in Okanagan Xtreme Lacrosse League action. The defending champion Raiders dropped an 11-6 contest to the ‘Rocks on April 16, but have since reeled off three straight wins. Kelowna (3-1) drubbed the Vernon Tigers for the second week in a row, 10-2 on Thursday in Vernon. Jarret Neigum paced
the Raiders attack with two goals and two assists. Kyle MacLennan, Jared MacLennan and Colby Field each scored twice, while Hao Lieu and Joe Brown added singles. Steve Plasko chipped in with four assists. The Raiders played a solid defensive game, backstopped by the steady goaltending of Cam Needham. After a sluggish start, the Raiders—who went 16-0 last season—appear to be hitting their stride. Interim coach Steve Begelky credits the quick
turnaround to a mixture of talent and depth. “After we lost that first one, we kind of came together as a team,” said Begley. “We have way more depth than we had last year so, if we don’t have everybody available to play, we’re still in good shape. “We’ve got 25 guys carded, so we don’t have to burn guys out. We can rest somebody every week if we want,” Begley said. The Raiders next home action in May 28 vs Armstrong.

W JUNIOR LACROSSE
Jr. Raiders 1st win of season The Rutland Raiders are no longer strangers to the win column. The Raiders picked up their first victory of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League, edging past the Armstrong Shamrocks 10-9 on Saturday night at Memorial Arena. Rutland (1-4) rebounded from a 7-5 loss to the Shamrocks a night earlier in Armstrong. “We were much better (Saturday) than in our other game against them,” said Raiders head coach Travis Wray. “We dictated play and came to the rink ready to play lacrosse.” Sheldon McDonald paced the Raiders attack with three goals and two assists, while Jordan Urban and Dillon MacLennan each had a goal and two helpers. A wellrounded attack also featured single markers from Andrew McMillan, Kris Needham, Ryan Phillips, Fraser Camptbell, and Nathan Illichmann, with his first of the season. “Everyone was pretty pumped about getting that first win,” said Wray.
“We’ve been in very game, the guys have the confidence in knowing that they can play with anyone.” The Raiders have a home-and-home series coming up against the South Okanagan Tigers as the teams meet Saturday night at Memorial and Monday in Summerland.
The Kelowna Warriors will pursue their third straight TOJLL win Thursday when they host
the Armstrong Shamrocks. Face off at Memorial Arena is 7:30 p.m. The Warriors pushed their record to 2-1 Monday night with a 14-5 drubbing of the South Okanagan Flames in Summerland. Brad Deshane added to his team leading point total (19) with three goals and three assists for the Warriors. Scott Renner scored four times and added two helpers, Tyler French had three goals and three assists, and
Luke Bailey scored a pair in a dominant effort by Kelowna. “That was, by far, our best game of the season,” said Warriors coach Kelly Cahill. “We have pretty much our whole team back and things are rounding into shape pretty well.” The Warriors’ home game with Kamloops last Thursday was postponed due to the Rattlers’ bus breaking down. The game will be rescheduled for later this season.
Challenge hosts ’Loops in home opener The Okanagan Challenge knew defending the Pacific Coast Soccer League title wouldn’t be an easy proposition. A tough opening weekend to the 2010 campaign simply served as confirmation. The Challenge, who had to contend with injuries and the absence of some key players, are off to an 0-2 start after a pair of losses in Victoria. On Saturday night, Victoria United slid past the Challenge 2-1. David Hill slotted Okanagan’s lone marker in the loss on a step up from Alex Keller. On Sunday afternoon, with little time to rest and recuperate, Okanagan fell 3-1 to the Victoria Highlanders. Hill had the lone
goal for the defending PCSL champs. The Challenge will play their home opener this Saturday on the CNC turf against the Kamloops Excel in a 2:30 p.m. kick off. The game has been designated the Sieben Cup with the winner taking both the Cup and the right to host the 2011 edition of the game. Prior to the PCSL contest at 12:15 p.m., the
Challenge alumni will play the first Tasker Cup game, in honour of the team’s co-founder and late president Eric Tasker. On Saturday night, the team’s annual fundraising dinner at silent auction will be held at the Odd Fellows Hall. Tickets are $20 and are available by calling 250861-9067 or 250-7651669 or from any Challenge player.

W SPRING CLEANING
Last chance for skills brush up Uncovering that foul smell Tresa Erickson
FROM THE GROUND UP
he spring gardening seminars are now almost over as gardeners begin to settle into a new season putting into practice what they’ve learned from the experts. Over the next 10 days, however, there are some sessions you might want to take in to top up your knowledge. Arthritis and gardening is about learning how to protect your joints while gardening, setting realistic goals for creating your garden and how to make your garden more accessible and relaxing. This is a two hour session, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., on Thursday May 13, at Reid Hall beside the Benvoulin Heritage Church, 2279 Benvoulin Rd. To register call the Kelowna Arthritis Centre at 250-868-843. This session is free. George Scotter, author of Wildflowers of the Rocky Mountains, will give a free illustrated talk on local wild flowers at the Society for Learning in Retirement at the Martin Centre, 1434 Graham St., in Kelowna. In addition to the talk the group will have an opportunity to identify some of the local wildflowers from fresh material. This session is on Thursday May 20, from 10 a.m. to noon. And I will present a free gardening talk at Burnett’s Florist and Gifts, at 453 Bernard Ave., this Saturday, May 15, 11 a.m. Basic pruning, plant selection and landscape

Communities in Bloom is a Canadian nonprofit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus on the promotion and value of green spaces in urban settings. “People, plants and pride…growing together” is the program’s slogan, and it captures the essence of the program. With this in mind, the Kelowna Communities in Bloom committee has ventured into a new area for 2010. They will recognize various areas around the city that they believe to be

“a Kelowna beauty spot.” Each month, starting in May, they will acknowledge a business, property owner or community venture by placing a sign on the location for all to see. You are encouraged to drive by these locations each month to look at what your Kelowna is
doing to make their surroundings beautiful. Look for the bright green circular sign that says: A Kelowna Beauty Spot. The first of these gardens is the apartment complex at the corner of Ethel Street and Highway 97, called Copperstone Gate. This is truly a joint effort of the Copperstone community, management and ‘Howe-2’ gardener Neil Howe.

You tend to throw most of your food scraps into the compost pile, but every now and then, you run into something that can’t be composted and toss it into the garbage disposal. You use your disposal so little that you might not give it much attention when cleaning. A simple swipe around the splashguard, however, won’t eliminate the odors that will inevitably arise due to trapped food particles. For the most part, garbage disposals do their job well. They grind up food waste into small particles and wash them down the drainpipe. In the process, however, some of those particles may get lodged in nooks and crannies of both the disposal and the drainpipe. As those particles sit, mold and bacteria will develop and spread, leading to foul odors. To prevent this, a thorough cleaning of your disposal is required monthly, if not weekly. You may clean your garbage disposal in one of two ways. You may purchase a commercial cleaner, or you may make your own cleaning solution. For the latter, you have two options.
The first involves using baking soda, vinegar and hot water. Pour a cup of baking soda into the disposal, follow that with a cup of white vinegar and let the mixture sit for five minutes. Then flush the disposal with boiling water. The second involves using bleach and water. Fill a gallon jug with water, add a tablespoon of bleach and pour the mixture into the disposal. Let
it sit for five minutes and then flush the disposal with cold water. Make sure you clean the splashguard on your garbage disposal as well. Food particles almost always get caught in it, especially under the rim. Remove the guard if possible, wash it in hot, soapy water, dry it and replace it. Don’t neglect your garbage disposal, no matter how little you use it.

A welcome proposal
proposal by a backbench Conservative MP in Ottawa is one that MPs of all parties and the general public should embrace. Ontario MP Michael Chong has proposed a motion that goes into some detail about how to make Question Period in the House of Commons more relevant and, most importantly, far more civil and respectful of cabinet ministers’ time. It’s a proposal that will resonate with every Canadian who
has ever watched the absurdity that Question Period has become. Question Period is the point in the parliamentary day where MPs do their best to pose embarrassing questions to ministers. This in itself is not bad — ministers must be accountable for their departments. But the whole exercise is theatre — complete with shouting, catcalls and a total lack of decorum from MPs on all sides.
Chong has suggested specific ministers be prepared to field questions on specific days, so most members of cabinet don’t have to spend up to three and a half hours per day prepping for questions that may be asked. If ministers spend that much time each day getting ready for questions, how much time can they actually devote to their real duties? Among many other proposals, Chong suggests backbench MPs be recognized by
the Speaker to pose questions, rather than simply be placed on a list by party house leaders. This would make Question Period far more democratic, and allow MPs to pose questions more relevant to their constituents. The main point of government should be to get things done. Any reform of Question Period that would make it more than just a theatrical performance would be a big step forward.

hand out tickets for HOV and handheld phone infractions, I have yet to drive by anyone being handed a ticket. And, I would bet dollars to doughnuts that neither are a high priority for the local cops right now. In light of the recent revelation that drinking driving appears to be on an upswing here and the new provincial plan to crack down hard on boozers behind the wheel, I’m sensing HOV-lane infractions may not be where the police are looking to bust high-crime perps. But it’s not just hand-held phones and HOV lanes. There are plenty of other distractions drivers seem oblivious to out there.
A few weeks ago, I saw a woman drive by using her small dog as a headrest. The dog was wedged between her neck and actual headrest, looking out the window. Then there’s the speeders, the folks who seem allergic to indicating and the drivers who just don’t pay attention. Don’t get me started about the idiots who flick cigarette butts out the windows, especially during hot, dry Okanagan summers. There used to be a road safety campaign that used the slogan Speed Kills. I would change that to stupidity kills. email@example.com

W TUSSOCK MOTH
Pests are nature’s way of re-establishing balance in the forests To the editor: When pines run short of water because of low precipitation, overcrowding or other causes, the mountain pine beetle thins out the older trees in order to conserve soil moisture so that the younger trees will have enough to survive. When spruce run short of water because of unusually dry conditions or other causes, the spruce budworm removes much of the new growth in order to reduce the amount of mois-
ture needed by each tree to survive. When Douglas fir run short of water because of unusually dry conditions or other causes, the tussock moth caterpillar carries out essentially the same function as the spruce budworm in order to reduce moisture requirements and allow at least some of the trees to survive. In short, these so-called pests attack trees to save them, not to destroy them. If some of
the trees die, it’s simply because they haven’t been getting enough water, not because of the bugs. They’re dying of thirst. Given that precipitation levels have been steadily dropping for the past 30 years, so that water tables in the B.C. Interior are now lower than ever before, is it so hard to understand why we’re being overrun by beetles and budworms and moths? Tom Anderson, Summerland

Fallout from eyeglass deregulation in B.C. To the editor: On May 1, the B.C. government becomes the first jurisdiction in North America to deregulate the eyeglasses industry. This means anyone can purchase prescription eyeglasses over the Internet without having a visit to an optometrist.
I’m wondering what ICBC and WCB have to say about this. Suppose there is an accident on the highway or in a workplace and the cause is attributed to improper eyeglasses bought online. Who would be legally responsible in such a case? Would employers start demanding proof
of purchase from employees to verify the employee has the proper eyewear in the workplace? B.C. optometrists are fighting this and I support them entirely. Art Chaplin, Westbank
Westbank renaming a done deal from day 1 To the editor: Did the mayor (District of West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater) really mean sincerely that he had erred in the (community) naming process? (Mayor Wishes He’d Done a Few Things Differently, April 11 Capital News Westside) I think not. This whole process was carefully scripted from day one when he chaired the governance study and became a Join
capital news A25
Kelowna supporter. This study agreed to find a new name at the same time as the incorporation vote in 2009. It didn’t matter either way, joining Kelowna or incorporating, the name of West Kelowna could have still been used. It was shortly after this when Mr. Findlater met personally with then MLA Rick Thorpe along with Len Novakowski. At this meeting they decided to call it the District of
West Kelowna. This was months before our first election in 2007. His second job was to put himself, along with two of the council, thenmayor Neis and then councilor Heather Pilling, onto the naming committee. Thirdly, nominate a ‘branding’ expert and strong Kelowna supporter to chair the committee. Mr. Less used his chair position to mount a huge Internet campaign.
The next step was to call the naming ballot an opinion poll and then change it to an officially binding referendum. This without notifying each resident officially. Each step of this process was thought out and planned. After nearly two years and hundreds of letters not responded to by council, as well as 1,600 residents asking for a town hall meeting ina a petition, there has not been a
squeak from the council, just a deafening silence. This supposedly open council appears to be a closed shop. It is tome the council finds ways to address serious issues in the district, especially when they involve so many people such as the Citizens for a Historic Westbank. Burying them is not a solution and will result in a serious backlash to our district and our council. F. Paynter, Westbank

Gov’t does bad job spending our money To the editor: I feel government should only be taking peoples’ money for the basic necessities of life and leaving the rest up to the population to donate as they feel fit for their cause since government doesn’t know how to look
after its people, and we have to have food banks and people sleeping in parks as in the new ruling Victoria (City) v. Adams. I am suppose to come up with $17,500 for a water system plus an extra $127 for garbage disposal this year. I wonder
if there will be any grant money left over for my water system to be built since everything is being cut back on now from the recent spending to bring the economy back from recession, or do I have to come up with the entire amount myself?
Difference of opinion over graffiti generates insults To the editor: With regard to Jennifer Smith’s column on April 9 regarding graffiti and the cutline in the picture. (Visual Artist Sees Positive Residual Benefits of Street Art.) If the scrawl is on my
wall and the city is going to charge me if I do not remove it, it’s vandalism and it’s a crime. If I arrange to have a mural painted and the city OKs it, then fine. I don’t know why you don’t get that.
I bet the Capital News would not be happy if their building was targeted with graffiti. Maybe you should put your brain in gear before writing rubbish. Stuart Cook, Kelowna
I think it is more important government grant people money for a water system first, before granting some dude cash to buy a new car with as in the case of the Scrap It vehicle program that still exists to this day. My vehicle is 18 years old and I can’t af-
ford the Scrap It grant! I truly feel government needs to get my financial priorities straight or let me handle the money and I will show government how to do a better job. Sharon Schnurr, Kelowna

W MISS B.C PAGEANT
Kelowna girl competes for crown StrongStart centre program Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR
For the chance to boost the donations to Cops for Cancer, one local woman is willing to wear a tiara and sash. Christina O’Connor, 18, has been accepted as a contestant in the Miss B.C. pageant—a competition that focuses heavily on fundraising—which will be held in Fort Langley early July. “My friend was saying that she did it and it was a great experience, and I thought ‘that’s cool, why don’t I try out,’” O’Connor said. The idea of raising money for a cause like Cops for Cancer sweet-
ened the pot for her. “It can help out a lot of people.” The pageant is months down the road and the OC student has been working to get a corporate sponsor, squaring away the outfits she needs to compete and coming up with an act that will dazzle the judges. “You have to have four outfits—a business outfit, a ball gown, a sports outfit and an outfit from your main sponsor—and then there’s a talent night,” she said, noting she has everything but the business outfit so far. “And I’m going to dance to a musical theatre/jazz number.” There’s no cash incentive for competing as the winner is just
an ambassador at B.C. events, but O’Connor said it’s an experience that will enhance her life. Miss B.C. teaches everything from self defense to table etiquette and if the pageant whet’s the appetite for competition, winners are also given a pass to vie for the title of Miss Earth. The most important thing stressed O’Connor, a pharmacy tech student, is raising funds for a good cause. For more information on how to donate to the contestants’ causes go to MissBC.ca. O’Connor’s image will be uploaded soon and all donations made to her cause are tax deductible.
initiated at two local schools StrongStart programs, B.C.’s newest play-based programs for Kelowna’s youngest learners, were opened this week by Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson at South Rutland and Raymer Elementary schools. “The South Rutland and Raymer StrongStart B.C. centres will offer local children and their families nurturing, supportive environments where they can discover the joy of learning,” said Thomson. “Today’s grand opening of these two centres is an important step for early education here in Kelowna.” StrongStart B.C. is a free drop-in early learning
program for preschoolaged children accompanied by a parent or caregiver. A qualified early childhood educator leads activities, including stories, music and arts to help children grow linguistically, emotionally and socially, and become comfortable in a school-like setting. All of B.C.’s 60 school districts have been offered the opportunity to participate in the StrongStart BC program. The province has invested $43 million to expand StrongStart BC, with more than 310 programs now operating across the province.
StrongStart centres help fulfil government’s commitment to use under-utilized school district space to deliver early learning services. The Central Okanagan School District has received $100,000 to help start up the program at local schools. This includes $20,000 for South Kelowna and Raymer elementary schools to prepare inschool space, including renovations and the purchase of new equipment and learning materials and $30,000 each to fund this year’s operating costs, including staff, professional development, supplies and healthy snacks.

Ehmann Printing sold to larger graphics firm Maxine DeHart This week’s column is dedicated to Doris Vaughn, the wife of Cecil Vaughn ,who passed away April 27. I always enjoyed our chats when they came to the hotel for lunch or dinner.

Menzies Printers is a fourth generation Western Canada graphic communication company started in 1946 with office locations today in Kamloops, Calgary, Edmonton and Grande Prairie. The company was originally founded by Art Menzies and his wife along with their son Mal Menzies.

Retirement income: Will it last Journalists’ secret sources for the rest of your lifetime? no longer quite so secret W COURT RULING
ot all categories of employment are governed solely by cookie-cutter laws such as employment standards statutes. Journalists are an example of a group which, to some degree, operates under a specialized set of laws. Journalists are occasionally in the position of receiving information from sources who do not want their identity revealed. The journalist will provide a promise of confidentiality but the issue is the degree to which the journalist can actually uphold that promise. The Supreme Court of Canada recently had an opportunity to review the extent to which journalists can protect the identity of a confidential source. The result is one which media organizations will surely condemn. Her Majesty the Queen vs. National Post involved an attempt by an unknown person to dupe the National Post into publishing a document which implicated a former prime minister of Canada in a serious conflict of interest. The implication was that the former prime minister was improperly involved with a loan from a federally funded bank to a hotel in the prime minister’s riding (which hotel allegedly owed a debt to the prime minister’s family investment company). The document had been provided to a National Post journalist who, in return, provided an unconditional promise of confidentiality. When the document was revealed, the former prime minister (and others) stated that the document was a forgery. The RCMP obtained an order compelling the National Post to assist them in locating the allegedly forged document. Their intention was to subject the document to forensic testing to determine if it would offer up any fingerprints or other identifying markings such as DNA which might identify its creator.
Robert Smithson The National Post applied, successfully, to quash the order. The Ontario Court of Appeal reversed that decision, reinstating the original order. That decision was appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada. The Supreme Court reviewed both the general law protecting the identity of journalists’ sources and the question of whether the National Post should have to hand over the allegedly forged document. The media’s argument, of course, is that unless journalists can offer anonymity to confidential sources, freedom of information in debate on matters of public interest will be compromised. As the court stated: “Important stories will be left untold, and the transparency and accountability of our public institutions will be lessened to the public detriment.” The court stated that, in appropriate circumstances, “The courts will respect a promise of confidentiality given to a secret source” by a journalist. However, the “public’s interest in being informed about matters that might only be revealed by secret sources…is not absolute” and “must be balanced against other important interests, including investigation of a crime.” The court emphasized

During our working years and in retirement, there are unpredictable expenses and emergencies that come up on a regular basis. Spur of the moment emergencies do not end because we retire. A good trial model to follow is to change your spending habits before retirement. If a couple will have 25 to 50 per cent less income in retirement, try living on this reduced income stream before retirement. If you have a shortfall during your working years during this trial, you will establish there is an insufficient income to live the lifestyle of your choice in retirement.

that the “many important news gathering techniques, including reliance on secret sources, should not…be regarded as entrenched in the Constitution.” The common law does not, therefore, recognize a blanket privilege protecting journalists from compelled disclosure of secret sources. Journalists’ claims for protection of secret sources must be assessed on a case-by-case basis taking into account the established common law rules of privilege. Until all aspects of the common law rules of privilege have been satisfied (the burden is on the journalist to do so), no privilege arises and the “evidence is presumptively compellable and admissible.” That being the case, “no journalist can give a secret source an absolute assurance of confidentiality.” In the circumstances of this particular case, the Court sided with the police. The allegedly forged document was deemed “essential to the police investigation and likely essential as well to any future prosecution.” The next time a journalist promises you confidentiality or anonymity, you might ask whether he or she has read up on the law lately.

o you wonder how much money you will need in retirement to live a lifestyle of your choice? How you will fill your time in retirement and how much will it cost? When planning for retirement, do some number crunching based on realistic numbers and factual information. During our lifetime, we receive a regular paycheck and we spend most of it. What is left over, we save for retirement or spend on other things like a family vacation, a new vehicle, splurge on a new washer and dryer, or replace the house roof. Prepare a balance sheet or start with a blank piece of 8x10 paper. Start with income on one side, and expenses on the other side of the projection. List all the income you will receive in retirement, OAS entitlement, CPP entitlement, employer pension benefits, any bridging benefits with a CPP reduction, any other income, such as, savings, non registered assets, a possible inheritance, sale of a business, or the proceeds from downsizing of a house. Expenses on the other side involve all the same expenses we paid for during our working years, plus or minus a few ex-

Extra costs are a reality, but difficult to predict in a budget scenario.

The disabled can thrive when given a taste of entrepreneurship
NEW! NEW! NEW!
hile I was pondering a theme for my column for this week, my mind wandered back to Saskatchewan from whence we came and my association with the Saskatchewan Association for Rehabilitation Centres. For a brief time, I had entered into a venture relationship whereupon people with disabilities who worked in various Saskatchewan rehab centres were able to work directly within their respective communities across the province and market greeting cards which were reproductions of original Saskatchewan prairie scenes. What was so personally gratifying for me was the opportunity for the disabled folk to experience a taste of being entrepreneurial. The study of disabled entrepreneurship evolves out of the investigation of the category of social entrepreneurship, which, in itself is relatively new in its research and maturity. This has prompted me to highlight for you this week an element that has caught my attention in my own research. The New Heroes is a phrase and PBS television . This series offers us a picture of how social entrepreneurs can and do change the world through the power of new ideas I would like to share some of these images for you this week to offer you a road you might wish to travel when you are ready to make your contribution to changing our world. Let’s look at social entrepreneurship first. A social entrepreneur identifies and solves social problems on larger scales than what we, as individuals, might normally expect from singular or
Joel Young small group voices. Just as economic entrepreneurs create and can transform whole industries, social entrepreneurs act as the “change agents” for society, seizing opportunities others miss in order to improve the social order and its systems or lack thereof, invent and disseminate new approaches and advance sustainable solutions that give rise to creating a genuine social value in our lives. Here is where I feel the hinge to disabled entrepreneurship comes into play for me when we recognize that the job of a social entrepreneur is identify a part of society that gets stuck and to charge forward with new ways for it to get unstuck. He or she finds what is not working and solves the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution and persuading our societies to take new leaps. The past two decades have seen an explosion of entrepreneurship and a healthy competition in the social sector where innovative ideas coupled with strategies for action have embraced the entrepreneur’s indomitable will for change. Let’s bring in the disabled world to this discussion of social entrepreneurship. Research in Canada and the U.S. has suggested that about fifteen-percent of persons with disabilities who are working are self-employed ( I

think it’s higher) versus the less than 10 per cent of non-disabled persons with their own ventures. More of us than ever are starting to follow suit—and launch our own ventures. However, starting our own businesses presents a certain number of unique challenges but it also gives us more flexibility and control of our personal and working environment. Despite the many challenges involved, people with disabilities are succeeding at launch their own entrepreneurial ventures at an incredible rate. Around 40 per cent of all home-based businesses are owned and operated by people with disabilities. This should be a great, new era of socio-economic entrepreneurial opportunity for Canadians with disabilities. Technology has made it far easier for them to work at home and participate in one of the most powerful economic trends of recent years— the entrepreneurial boom Yet, funny as it may seem to those of us with a social entrepreneurial bent to our personality, there are still large numbers of unemployed but capable disabled people in our wonderful country. Given the drain on the economy that represents, why isn’t more being done to harness their abilities and channel them into avenues of prosperity. Both our federal and provincial governments, and even a bit of municipal, have exercised some disabled small business programs but, have let those efforts fade away like a wisp of smoke. But, please recognize with me—there’s no lack of interest. Entrepreneurship has long appealed to people with varying disabilities. Practical considerations are strong motivators—independence, a flexible schedule, and the ability to work from a
place that’s equipped for their needs. But, let me go back a moment once again—key breakthrough has been that technological advancements has certainly improved things. The web has made tools and information for setting up and operating an entrepreneurial venture more accessible. As a strong response to the power of aiding and inspiring disabled entrepreneurship in our province, there are several things we can do and do better to make a significant difference to our “new heroes” and allow us to embrace the virtues of “ social entrepreneurship” in this great western province: • Reach more of the disabled community by working with specialized disability media and the mainstream media as well • Hire more staff to deliver existing and contribute to building new programs for entrepreneuriallyminded disabled persons • Play a stronger role in helping disabled budding entrepreneurs get financing • Become clearinghouses for information on assistive technology—the tools that allow disabled persons to fully participate in our provincial society and tap the high-tech entrepreneurial boom. • Raise money from private, philanthropic sources so it can meet the demand for entrepreneurial start-up information and become a long-term resource channel If we can collaborate to meet these important goals, we can become a “Command Central” for people with disabilities who want to enlist in the entrepreneurial revolution.

THE DESIGNS of internationally acclaimed artist Dorothy Grant will be on display at the Turtle Island Gallery on Thursday.
che ec ck iit to ou ut…
One of Canada’s foremost First Nations fashion designers will be in Kelowna to talk about her life in the haute couture world on Thursday at Turtle Island Gallery. Dorothy Grant is an internationally acclaimed fashiond designer as well as traditional Haida artist and accomplished weaver. She developed the idea in the early 1980s of melding her artistic talent with fashion to create her own line of clothing. She first came to prominence at Expo 86 when her fashion interpretation of a traditional Haida ceremonial regalia, the Raven Creation Tunic, was presented at a dignitary feast hosted by the Canada Pavilion. Today, that garment is part of the Canadian Museum of Civilization’s permanent collection along with her Hummingbird Copper Panel Dress. Her clothing designs, often described as “wearable art,” in the years since have drawn wide praise from fashion circles around the world. Celebrities such as Robin Williams, Jennifer Tilly, Marie Osmond and Inuk singer Susan Aglukark have worn her clothing designs, while her work has been exhibited in art galleries around the world. Georgette Johnson, owner of the Turtle Island Gallery, said she and Grant have talked for years about the fashion designer making an appearanc in Kelowna. “A couple of weeks ago she and I were chatting at her studio in Vancouver, and we just decided to do this. I’ve wanted to bring her to Kelowna for some time and it’s something she’s always wanted to do,” Johnson said. She said Grant continues to operate her own thriving clothing boutique in Vancouver, while continuing to serve as a role model for First Nations people, particularly those wanting to get into the fashion industy. Grant will be at the gallery, located at 115-1295 Cannery Lane in Kelowna’s Cultural District,on Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. For more information, call 250-717-8235.

GOGOL BORDELLO: TRANS-CONTINENTAL HUSTLE (AMERICAN RECORDINGS)
I was eager to get this new Gogol Bordello album after seeing their hilarious and extremely energetic live spot on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last week. This is the band’s fifth album, but first one for a major label so that Gogol Bordello remained mostly unknown outside of their New York locale. The group is led by Ukrainian Eugene Hutz, a refugee of the Chernobyl disaster, who finally got accepted as a U.S. immigrant in 1993 after kicking around a few eastern European countries for a number of years. It was there that Hutz picked up his love of gypsy music that he has blended into his riotous form of rock and roll. The band was hailed in a lot of New York crit-

Hutz and his merry rabble also dabble in a little reggae Uke-rock on the topical anti-war song When Universes Collide and on the immigration intolerance centered Immigrandiada (We Comin’

Rougher) as Hutz experienced a lot of prejudice in his past. This is a solid CD and a full-on party blast but it only barely captures the magic of that live concert footage I saw on Fallon’s late night talk show.

TAYLOR HAWKINS & THE COATTAIL RIDERS: RED LIGHT FEVER (RCA) It is somewhat ironic that Taylor Hawkins
is the drummer for Foo Fighters. That is because Foo Fighters was formed by ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl so he could express his own musical creations. Taylor Hawkins’ brand of rock isn’t that much different from Grohl’s Foo Fers but his guest list helps inform and expand Hawkins’ style. There is some Queenlike theatrical, baroque rock on Not Bad Luck and Way Down as Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen help out on both of these tunes.
But Mostly Hawkins has a pop-rock classicists ear on Red Light Fever. Check out the semisoft rock grooves on the cool Fleetwood Maclike Never Enough and the ’70s Badfinger rock hooks on the dramatic It’s Over. I particularly liked the power pop on Sunshine (a title that sorta sums up a lot of Red Light Fever), The Beatlesque Hole In My Shoe (not the Traffic classic) and Crickets-like Not Fade Away rhythmics of the song James Gang. This is a likeable album but no one song really blows you away so hard core fans of Foo Fighters will probably want to check this disc out. I’m just wondering if the drummer from the backing band The Coattail Riders is thinking of a solo project? By the way, Dave Grohl is all over this album playing, of all things, rhythm guitar. B-
DEF JAM 25: DJ BRING THAT BACK (DEF JAM/ UNIVERSAL)
I cannot really say I am a big fan of rap albums but I discovered, like most casual fans, that rap in small doses (read hit singles) can be a lot of fun. Def Jam is one of the most important labels in rap, R&B and hip hop and the label has just recently released a five-CD box set, Def Jam 25, in celebration of their 25th anniversary. This new twoCD sampler of that box set is a solid anthology of 25 songs (who woulda’ guessed) that more or less follows huge hits backwards in time from the most recent Rihanna to early LL Cool J the label’s first big star. In between is a mind boggling array of varied music from diverse acts such as Kanye West, Ludacris, Ashanti, JayZ, DMX, Method Man, Onyx, Public Enemy and Montell Jordan with his uber smash This Is How We Do It. Anyway, I just got the new Cypress Hill CD in the mail and I really enjoyed it after just one listen. But by next week I’ll see if it stands up to repeated exposures for just a casual rap fan.

W FOOD AND WINE
Wine from the orchard fruits T
AN EARLY FAMILY PHOTO, possibly of James Manery, at the door of the Manery cabin in the Similkameen.
here is something utterly magical about being able to trace family roots. As they say: The roots of a family tree begin with the love of two hearts.” This definitely rings true for the Harker (nee Manery) family who settled in the Similkameen Valley in 1888. The love was for family as well as for tending the land and both traditions have been continued with pride. Five generations of this family business have thrived and with the current raising the sixth generation and making wine, they are taking the legacy to a new level. Winemaker Sara Harker’s venture into wine making was initiated through her passion for supporting the local economy and maintaining her belief in sustainability. Instead of going the grape wine route, she thought: “Why not make wine with what we already have?” With the Harker’s thriving orchards at her fingertips, Sara went to

Jennifer Schell work on capturing the essence of the tree fruits in a bottle. And that she did. A true taste of summer in every drop, these creative flavour bombs will send your taste buds to a whole new level. The new series of Rustic Roots wines that the Harker’s have created will pay tribute to each one of the pioneers of their beloved Similkameen Valley. The first tribute is made to the Manery Family. James Manery, along with his wife, traveled west on horseback from Ontario in 1868. They settled in the Similkameen Valley where William managed the Old Barcelo Ranch. Their first of 10 chil-
dren, Samuel James Manery was born on March 14, 1888. He was the fourth non-native baby born in the Similkameen. The snow apple or Femeuse tree that Samuel planted on his family farm, still stands today as a stoic symbol of their pioneer heritage. New Release Plum Rosé (tank sample). A glimpse into this new creation revealed what will be a rich concentrated fresh plum explosion (Sara used five varieties of plums).

ful plums that were going to be wasted, Sarah intervened and brought them all home. Her reward for saving the plums? A gorgeous sweet and sour flavour sensation that has been described as a “party in your mouth.” With a pleasing zing of acidity the fruit is followed by a unique hit of cocoa powder at the back end. Very special.

Championships. A total of 12 high school, six middle school and 10 elementary school teams from Kamloops, Nanaimo, the Shuswap and the North, Central and South Okanagan faced off at the Creekside Community Theater in Lake Country to test their knowledge about all things green. Frank J. Ney Elementary, of Nanaimo, won the hotly contested Elementary School Division and $1,000 for their school. Wiltse Elementary School, from Penticton, placed second. École KLO Middle School, of Kelowna, won the coveted first place in the Middle School category. Dr. Knox Middle School, also from Kelowna, placed second after playing several tightly contested games. Competition was fierce in the high school category, as teams competed for $1,000 bursaries per team member, courtesy of Terasen Gas. After a long battle, Okanagan Mission Secondary School, in Kelowna, took home first prize. Kelowna Secondary School placed second, with each team member winning a $300 bursary. Chase Secondary won for the Most Sportsmanlike team. “We like participating in the Environmental Mind Grind because it brings awareness of environmental issues in a fun way,” said OKM student team member Erin Saunders. The Environmental Mind Grind contest helps students learn about local environmental issues and motivates them and their families to live more sustainably. Partners in Environmental Education organizing this year’s Terasen Gas Environmental Mind Grind Challenge include the City of Kelowna, Regional Waste Reduction Office, Regional Parks and Recreation Services, the Council of Forest Industries and Water Smart. Other sponsors of this year’s challenge include Terasen Gas, OK Environmental Waste, FortisBC, and the Okanagan Basin Water Board.
