HOP TO IT…Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy player Kenny Fitzgerald takes a moment to meet some of the little bunnies he and his academy teammates are helping by repairing a bunny sanctuary at the TRACS (The Responsible Animal Care Society) facility in East Kelowna. The hockey academy is participating in the Days of Caring program initiated by the United Way in the Central Okanagan, where groups or employers donate volunteer time to help out non-profit social service agencies.

Liberal challenger takes aim at Cannan Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The first personal shot

has been fired in the election race in Kelowna-Lake Country. Liberal candidate Kris

Stewart has slammed Conservative incumbent Ron Cannan for his role in a dissenting report writ-

ten by Tory members of a Parliamentary Committee that looked at the costs of last year’s G8 and G20

meetings in Ontario.

A Kelowna citizens group involved with the production of medical marijuana is planning to take to the streets May 7 to “free cannabis.” And along their way, they’d like to collect donations for a community group in need. But when members of the Social Justice Coalition of the Okanagan shared their idea with the organization in question, they learned their good deed was less than welcome. “We were putting up posters, and saying we wanted to collect donations for the food bank, and they said they will not accept donations from us because it would (appear) like they’re supporting our march,” said organizer Michael Dussault-Jensen. “There are hungry people out there, and it’s not like we’re going to put a joint in the donation.” Now, he’s asking if there are other organizations out there which would welcome the donation, because they still want to give back to the community. If the feedback he’s receiving from the community is right, the march could bring a heavy contingent of support. “We have 100 people confirmed and we’re looking at 300 to 500 people saying they’re interested in coming,” he said, adding that the coalition just had its first board meeting and is in the process of being incorporated as an official entity. The impetus for both the march and forming the group in the first place can be pinned on the recent surge of attention on medical marijuana, its legality and the fervor around its production. Municipalities in the Lower Mainland have tried to drum up support in their bid to get Health Canada to stop the practice of issuing medical marijuana grow licences. The issue was recently discussed in Kelowna council chambers, but Dussault-Jensen would like to see someone further the conversation and extend protections to those who use and grow the plant medicinally. “There’s a bunch of issues around medical marijuana,” he explained.

NEWS W FISHING

Huge trout probably was feeding on kokanee Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Higher populations of kokanee in Okanagan Lake could be in part responsible for huge rainbow trout coming out of the big lake in recent weeks. Last Friday, Jim Sutherland reeled in a 25.5-pound (11.5 kilograms) rainbow trout in the Gellatly Bay area around West Kelowna. A couple of weeks earlier a 14-yearold Summerland angler landed a slightly smaller rainbow. Environment ministry fisheries biologist Paul Askey says when there’s more food, more predators can be supported in a lake and the trend for kokanee populations is up, so it’s not really surprising to see such big trout coming out. Sutherland’s fish is larger than any other the ministry has recorded from the lake, but that’s only including fish recorded in creel surveys or during fishing derbies. Sutherland says it’s the third largest rainbow that’s been taken from the lake and weighed on a government-certified scale.

Such large fish are few and far between, commented Askey, although acoustic surveys of Okanagan Lake indicate there is, on average, one per hectare. Trophy fish like Sutherland’s are the result of considerable fishing effort, both in time spent on the water, and decisions like what depth to fish in and where, and what gear to use. In fact, Askey says there are lots of smaller rainbows as well; fish which target bugs rather than the smaller, streamspawning kokanee that are now available in abundance in the lake. This would have been an older fish, perhaps of a different genetic stock, that switches to going after kokanee instead of insects. Askey said the ministry has records of rainbows in the five to nine kilogram range caught in the ’80s and ’90s in Okanagan Lake. The largest was 9.98 kg. However, he said fishing pressure on Okanagan Lake has really dropped in the past few decades. The world record rainbow was over 40 pounds (18 kg). jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

W INTERIOR HEALTH

Investment of $5.9 million to enhance residential care sites Interior Health will put up an additional $5.9 million in 2011 to enhance the care provided to residents living in publicly funded residential care sites. The investment is intended to standardize the delivery of residential care across Interior Health and will be directed to staffing, education and quality initiatives.

Particular attention will go towards enhancing care for residential clients with the highest and most complex needs. “This funding will improve the quality and consistency of care for seniors, so that regardless of where clients live, they have access to the same standard and level of quality service,” said Interior Health board chairman

Norman Embree. Through this initiative, the majority of IH sites will see an increase in funding to deliver care to residents. Across the health region, the hours of direct care that residents receive at all residential care sites will now meet an average of 3.15 care hours per resident per day. Care hours include

the care provided by RNs, LPNs, care aides, and activity and rehab staff. “While not all sites will see a direct increase in hours, I am very pleased that our broad investments in staff education and care planning will benefit all sites,” said Donna Lommer, Interior Health vicepresident of residential services. Interior Health will be

hiring additional educators to support frontline staff, as well as introducing four quality coordinator positions to ensure the highest quality of care standards are in place at all residential sites. A similar process of standardizing care hours occurred in the IH-contracted private partner sites last year when Interior Health invested an

additional $4 million to ensure residents at these sites were provided with the same level and quality of service. This additional investment is made possible through the residential rate adjustments that took effect across British Columbia in January 2010 and 2011. All health authorities are allocating revenue

generated through the new rate structure into residential care services, ensuring the continuation and improvement of quality and equitable care. Interior Health funds 5,185 beds for residents requiring 24/7 complex care through facilities owned and operated by Interior Health and those operated by contracted private partners.

assistance from the Red Cross A Resiliency Centre has opened in Kelowna to assist people affected by the Laurentian Heights apartment fire last Sunday. The Laurentian Heights Fire Community Resiliency Centre is located at 1415 Kelglen Crescent. The Canadian Red Cross is supporting the City of Kelowna in the operation of the centre, assisting people as they work to rebuild their lives. Trained Red Cross personnel have been meeting with residents since Tuesday to determine what

they need to enable a return to self-sufficiency. The process will help ensure that no resident suffers gaps in the provision of their basic needs, as initial emergency assistance (72 hours) provided by local authorities has concluded. Experience indicates that the length of time for recovery will vary for each person. “Compassion and generosity are the hallmarks of the people of Kelowna,” said John Richey, operations manager for the Red Cross in the Southern Interior.

“The task ahead is to ensure sufficient and ongoing support to people impacted by the fire. “We are committed to working together with the community and providing support to the recovery efforts.” The Red Cross is not able to accept donations of goods. Financial contributions are greatly appreciated as they provide the most flexible and efficient way of helping those in need. Assistance provided by the Red Cross will not duplicate assistance pro-

vided through insurance, government or other agencies. Individuals, groups and organizations wishing to help are encouraged to make a financial donation through the Red Cross. Financial donations in support of local Red Cross efforts to help the Laurentian Heights fire victims can be made by calling 1-800-661-3308, or in person at the Red Cross regional office in Kelowna, located at 5-1414 Hunter Crt.

Off-leash dog park proposal killed Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Since 1984

250-868-8444

9:00-5:30 Mon.-Sat.

A spark of hope for a new offleash dog park in Kelowna was snuffed out earlier this week, when a city staff report cited high costs as a prohibitive measure. At a March 28 meeting, city councillors asked staff to report back on the feasibility of using a portion of the future DeHart Park in the Mission as a temporary off-

leash dog park. When the report returned they learned that fencing the site, at the corner of Gordon Drive and DeHart, and various other work required to bring it up to snuff would cost $20,000, prompting council to back off from the idea. “I asked council to take a look at it, and it’s expensive,” said Coun. Michele Rule, adding that it’s not worth pursuing. As is, the Mission neighbourhood already has a num-

ber of parks. There are six on-leash dog parks, and there are two off leash parks nearby.” What Rule did want to learn more about, however, was whether plans to build a dog park in the Parkinson Recreation area were coming together. That, she learned, wasn’t on city staff’s radar as there is no money allocated for off-leash dog parks in the city’s budget this year.

Understand the rules of green lights to stay safe By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC Traffic lights are used to organize the flow of traffic on our roads. Throughout the years, we have been taught that a red light means “stop,” a yellow light means use “caution” and a green light means “go.” However there can be so much more meaning to each of these “colours.” Green lights, for example, are often misused and many drivers don’t take the extra time they should at intersections. Typically, when we see a green light, we think “GO!” But, we really should be thinking, “Is this light going to change before I am through the intersection?” There are two types of a solid green light. A fresh

green light is a green light that has just turned green. It is not likely to turn yellow soon. As you are approaching a fresh green light, scan – Left, Centre and then Right – before you enter the intersection. You may enter the intersection on a green light: 1. If it is safe for you to do so 2. If the intersection is clear The second type of green light would be a stale light – one that has been green for a long time, and is about to turn yellow. Chances are, if you didn’t see the light turn green – it’s STALE. Stale green lights can cause problems when drivers are not prepared. Many drivers don’t know how to recognize a stale green light and are so not prepared for the light to turn yellow. When it does, the worst situation happens: Hesitation!

As drivers approach a stale green light, they need to watch their speed, road conditions and the traffic behind you. Ask, “If this light turns yellow, can I stop?” Do this until at the POINT OF NO RETURN. This is the point at the intersection where you can no longer stop safely in time. If the light turns yellow and you have passed the point of no return, you would remain at your speed – scanning left, centre and right – and if it’s safe, travel through the intersection. Never accelerate to “get through the intersection faster” – just keep doing the speed limit. As you can see, a simple green light has its own rules to keep us all safe. Make sure you approach these traffic lights knowing what to do.

They didn’t even eat everything they took. There were just a few clumps of crocus left in

Central Green compromises seek reaction from public Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The Central Green development on the old Kelowna Secondary School site is a substantial endeavor, but when it’s presented to the public for feedback next month the opposition is expected to

be minimal. “We’ve made our compromises,” said Coun. Robert Hobson about the proposed 13 acre development at Richter and Harvey Avenues. Based on a staff recommendation a year ago, council voted to drop its requirement for affordable

housing from 20 per cent of the 700 or so units the development will eventually contain down to 15 per cent. At that time, they also agreed to pull back on plans to have all the buildings in Central Green be certified to a LEED Gold standard. Instead, the

Kris Stewart BScN MBA Federal Liberal Candidate for Kelowna–Lake Country

project will aim for LEED Gold Neighbourhood status, with all buildings LEED certified, the lowest rating. “We got our density and mixed use,” said Hobson. “I think it’s a great project. Three generations of my family went to school there, and it’s worthy of all of them.” Central Green, said urban land use manager Danielle Noble, will include two hectares of community park space

surrounded by three hectares of residential housing, along with retail and public amenities. Creating a buffer of sorts, the bulk of the height and density in the development is deigned to butt into the highway. That means buildings of 16, 18 and 20 storeys will front along Harvey Avenue. “This project will secure affordable housing as an essential component of the master plan,” she said. In addition to mov-

ing the development itself along in the approval process, council entered into an agreement with the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to accommodate the 700 residential units. One of those changes include an overpass near the corner of Highway 97 and Richter Street that could cost about $1-million. That wouldn’t happen until the final phase of the project, which could be 15 years in the future.

As the city prepares to rezone the property and then seek development partners, the aim is to create manageable parcels in which a number of development companies can share in the process of building sustainably. Council gave first reading to a rezoning application for the Central Green project on April 11. A public hearing on the rezoning application will be held Tuesday, May 3, at city hall. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

the former Liberal government had spent money in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the U.S. The Tory MPs apologized to Fraser for using her comment out of context. The dissenting report was written to counter the Opposition MPs on the government operations committee who were critical of how the minority government of Stephen Harper spent money during the meetings of international leaders. A leaked draft of a report on the same issue by Fraser this week also blasts the government for its spending on the events, saying money was used incorrectly. But Conservative leader Stephen Harper insisted during Tuesday’s English-language debate that Fraser now says the

leaked draft cannot be relied upon. In a news release issued Wednesday morning, Stewart criticized Cannan for the role she says he played in the report that misappropriated Fraser’s comments. “I am not surprised Conservatives would seek her stamp of approval but I can’t believe Mr. Cannan and his colleagues would stoop to this tactic to get it,” she said. But Cannan said while his name is on the report, he was not one of its authors. In fact, he said, he was not on the committee when the report was written. He was appointed to the committee earlier this year after the committee held its hearing into the G8 and G20 spending and after the main report and the Tory members’ supplementary report were

written. Cannan said, as is parliamentary process, when a report is tabled in the House of Commons, it includes the names of all members currently on the committee that wrote it. And that’s how his name appeared on the report. “I was still on the fisheries committee when this report was written,” said Cannan. “This is clearly an attempt to miscommunicate the facts.” But his explanation is not good enough for Stewart. She said even if he was not on the committee, he should have brought himself up to speed after being appointed, should have been familiar with any report that would include his name and should have identified the incorrect use of Fraser’s statement. “It’s Ron’s responsibility to make sure that correspondence that goes out (in his name) is correct,” she said. Stewart said she makes a point of reading her emails and correspondence and Cannan should do the same. Cannan, who called the issue a “non-story,” said it appears to be a misunderstanding on Stewart’s behalf of how the process works in Ottawa. He said he is not looking for an apology. “I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.” In the e-mail, Stewart also noted Cannan was not in attendance when Fraser spoke here in February. Cannan said he was traveling back from Ottawa at the time and met with Fraser at his office the next day. He added he helped arrange for the auditor general to speak here. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

W OUR VIEW

Outside investigation is needed

T

he case of police in Prince George using a Taser on an 11-year-old boy raises numerous questions. But one is the same question that has been asked numerous times before—most notably in the case of Robert Dziekanski, who died in 2007 after being tasered by the RCMP in the Vancouver airport. Why are police conducting investigations into the conduct of

other police officers? It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that there could be a concern about bias, even with different police departments investigating each other. There is a long tradition among police officers of camaraderie, support and “watching each other’s backs.” The West Vancouver officers charged with investigating this latest tasering incident may well

be able to conduct an impartial review. But it is difficult to shed the appearance their conclusions could be tainted. The best way to give the public an assurance of an unbiased report is simply to ensure reviews of police conduct are conducted by an independent civilian panel. Retired justice Thomas Braidwood, who conducted the

public inquiry into Dziekanski’s death, has been calling on the provincial government to create such a body. But to date, nothing has been done. It is time for our government to help restore confidence in our police forces. The best way to do that is to keep them at arm’s length when their conduct is called into question.

Now there’s Vote Mob for another dose of youth-trending

“H

ashtag—Fail!” is the youth pandering phrase that came with me out of Tuesday’s leaders’ debate. For those who didn’t watch the fun-fest, it’s what NDP leader Jack Layton uncomfortably blurted out to address shortcomings in Stephen Harper’s crime policies—specifically, what’s lacking in diversion programs. “When some troublemaker comes up and tries to tempt (youth) into that life of crime, with the bling and everything else that goes along with it, instead they’ve got something positive to do,” he said. He said a bit more about the status quo, then dropped; “that’s been a hashtag fail on this issue.” Comparing the results of the Con-

servatives’ tough on crime stance and the Opposition’s plan to create preventative programs is a worthy pursuit. Lingo aimed at wooing the social media set, however, was so jarring—even by the standards of one as woefully plugged into the workings of Twitter and Facebook—that the topic was overshadowed by musings over the youth vote. For those blissfully unaware of Twitter, a hashtag is the number sign. It’s used like a tab people once put in their notebooks to mark what’s important. When there are enough tabs/

hashtags on a Twitter

KATHARTIC phrase, it’s “trending”

and gets noted for its popularity. Debate day, Layton’s “hashtag fail” was a hit, rising to the top of Kathy 42,500 election-related Michaels Twitter posts. It’s no wonder, really. It was the only moment candidates made a play for the illusive youth vote. It’s treated as a lost cause considering last election only 37 per cent of eligible voters between 18 and 24 turned out to the polling stations. So a blatant ploy to punch a hole into their online world could either go really well, or really poorly.

Initial feedback from university students I asked this week, painted a grim picture. “It’s dishonest,” said a UBCO engineering student, explaining that he uses Twitter to network with friends, and an NDP candidate trying to break into his world, in that way, seemed disingenuous. Others hadn’t heard Layton’s youth-friendly lingo, adding what they saw of the debates was far from intriguing, hashtags or not. Above all else, however, being treated like Pavlov’s dogs was irksome, making them more leery of the process. Frankly, it was discouraging news. It brought on an “end is nigh” funk that didn’t ebb until I hit Facebook again and stumbled upon Vote Mob

references. Turns out Canada’s youth aren’t so apathetic after all and they don’t need to be baited like monkeys to take part in their country. They do, however, seem to need cause and some have found it, between being treated like a lost cause and wanting change for their country. University students across Canada are rallying online with the intention of using their voting power election day to show that they do have a voice, and intend to use it. So, go and Google “Vote Mob” if you want to see a genuine “hashtag— success.” Kathy Michaels is a staff reporter for the Kelowna Capital News. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

Ethel St. Therapeutic Massage wishes to

W PARKINSON REC PLAN

Senior centre design not functional To the editor: As a designated “Pioneer of the City,” and as an active member of the Water Street Seniors Society, I was excited to hear that our new location was to be at the Parkinson Rec Centre. Great visions of sugarplums danced in my head. For one bus trip or one daily drive, we could participate at the pool, the exercise facilities, the new walkways, have lunch at our new senior centre and play all day! What a shock it was to see the new plans. There will be two floors

and fewer useable square feet. The location of the kitchen means that to serve our 100+ members coffee, tea and snacks on a Saturday afternoon, we will have to trolley the urns of hot coffee and tea and serve them where? The room will be jampacked. The kitchen at the present location is adjacent to the hall and refreshments are served from the counter. The washrooms are totally inadequate as well. The foresight of our fathers gave us a fine senior facility. The city

wants us out of there for the yacht club. Our council must now redeem itself. How? Scrap the plans with the fancy architectural glass foyers and give us useable space large enough to accommodate our present members, with larger washrooms, more storage space and a revised kitchen. This building should be built to serve Kelowna seniors for many years to come. Elizabeth Ley, Kelowna

We won’t dance on a rubber mat To the editor: Regarding the new seniors centre: At a recent information open house I was told the building is going to have a rubber grid concrete floor. If the above is true where are seniors going to take part in the very important activity of dancing? Concrete floors are much too hard on legs. And we sure won’t dance on a rubber mat. R.

W SENIORS CENTRE DESIGN

Seniors deserve better than cramped facility Open letter to Mayor Sharon Shepherd and Kelowna city councilors. As a user of the Water Street Senior Centre, I have carefully studied the proposed plan for the replacement centre to be constructed near the Parkinson Recreation Centre. I can summarize my reaction to the plan in two words: Grossly inadequate.

To start with, the recreation hall in the proposed centre is approximately 1,000 square feet smaller than the Water Street Centre, a reduction of about 25 per cent in size. At times the Water Street Centre is too small and some activities are forced to expand to adjacent rooms. With Kelowna’s increasing population and

the aging process there will be more demand for such facilities and not less, as the proposed plan would suggest. The washroom facilities in the proposed facility are reduced from those presently in use, despite the fact that women users, in particular, find the present facilities less than adequate. There are additional facilities on the

second floor but many seniors do not have the mobility to use the stairs and the elevator is small. In addition, there is no storage space for the 150 chairs and 35 tables that are frequently used. There, clearly, is not enough space for the activities needed to keep Kelowna’s seniors physically active and mentally alert. There is no reason to

move the Water Street Centre until the City of Kelowna produces a vastly improved proposal. The present plan is a disaster. The seniors of Kelowna who have used and enjoyed the Water Street Centre deserve much better. George Scotter, Kelowna

Former ‘Red Tory’ disenchanted with Harper To the editor: The Harperites have contaminated the political discourse in this country by the importation and implementation of Republican-style attack ads and fear-mongering campaigning. The Harper attack ads stress: 1. Character assassination of opponents (particularly Michael Ignatiaff) and 2. The dire consequences for Canadians if the Conservatives are not re-elected, saying that their re-election is the only way to keep Canadians “safe.” Depending on the issue, the Harperites paint their opponents as: 1. reckless spendthrifts, 2. weak on crime, national defence and security, 3. lacking integrity, and 4. in some cases, unpatriotic. Further, these ads have so poisoned the political atmosphere in this country that rational debate on issues vital to Canadians has become virtually impossible. In reality, Harper’s attack ads and scripted “bubble” campaigning show contempt, not only toward political oppon-

ents but the Canadian electorate. They obviously believe that the majority of Canadians are politically unsophisticated and thus easily duped. The following points, among innumerable others, can be made regarding Harper’s re-election campaign promises and statements to date: 1. “Corporate tax cuts are good for the Canadian economy,” says Flaherty. False. As reported by Statistics Canada, the rate of investment in machinery and equipment has declined in lock-step with falling corporate tax rates over the past decade. Corporations, however, added $83 billion to their cash reserves. Flaherty promises a further cut to 15 per cent will be implemented. This proposed tax cut will cost tax payers $14 billion per year by 2013. Liberals propose cancelling Flaherty’s proposed cuts. Good idea. 2. “Costing of F35 fighter jets to be $75 million per plane as per contract,” says Harper. Again, false.

The true per-unit cost of the F35 will be at least double Harper’s figures, Canada’s Parliamentary budget officer stated, and confirmed by Winslow Wheeler, Centre for Defence Information, Washington, D.C. Therefore, total cost to Canadians will be $18 billion for 65 planes, plus maintenance costs of $7 billion. Liberals promise to open this file to competitive bidding. Good idea. 3. Conservatives state that “for a safer Canada we will be building more prisons.” (Cost purposefully not divulged but experts estimate costs to be multiple billions in construction, staffing and maintenance). In fact, Canada’s crime rate has been decreasing. The U.S. incarcerates more people per capita than any other western country and U.S. citizens are hardly safer than we are. Liberals propose a pro-active approach in mitigating conditions that lead to crime rather than a reactive approach promised by Harper. Good idea.

4. Conservatives are superior fiscal managers, Harper implies. False. A) Harper squandered the inherited Liberal surplus of $14 billion before the 2008 recession. B) Jeffrey Simpson, columnist with the Globe and Mail, has this to say about Conservative fiscal management: “Conservatives tend to deliver lower taxes, bigger spending and large deficits. The gap between promise and delivery has been, and remains, huge.”

To sum up, as a former Red Tory of the late lamented Progressive Conservative Party, I can state without equivocation that Harper’s vision for Canada, both domestically and internationally, is not mine. Hopefully, other disaffected former PC supporters like myself will cast their vote for a national party that better represents their values. Harper has betrayed the trust of Canadians and does not deserve re-election. W.D. Waddell, West Kelowna

A FITNESS AND SOCIAL PROGRAM FOR THOSE WITH EARLY STAGE MEMORY LOSS

Almost one year after Georgie Martens, of Georgie’s Bridal shop, decided to give away a huge batch of her floor-model dresses to brides who could not otherwise afford one, the inquiries keep coming. Although she has moved her store from Springfield Road to Pandosy Street (beside Frock Consignment Clothing and A Woodside Design Gallery), she still has women coming in to ask if she will ever do the giveaway again. She also has people stop her to say thank you. “I was in Superstore and one woman came up to me,” said Martens. “Both of her sisters had gotten dresses and one had had a baby since. She was in tears telling me this story.” Indrig de Groen’s public thank-you came in the form of a news story. When she contacted the Capital News last year, she and her fiancé had known each other for seven years and were thrilled to be engaged, but had put off setting a date because they simply couldn’t afford the small backyard wedding they

Their story brought brides from far and wide to pick up the last remaining dresses on the rack, and Martens said the experience taught her a few things. On one hand, some were so honest that when she mentioned the dresses were for people who truly couldn’t afford them, they turned the garment down, saying they could likely scrounge the money.

Last year, she also held a small wine and cheese and had a wedding photographer take pictures of all the girls in their dresses as they came to pick them up. Framed on the brick wall of the store is a picture of the reason she’s willing to put in all the time and expense. Though she doesn’t even know if de Groen has ever had her wedding, the beautiful smile that brought so many comments, questions and hopeful brides through her door gleefully shines out above the dress she tried on for the photo. Her real gown was never revealed in the story so her fiancé would not see it. Anyone who truly cannot afford a dress is asked to come to Georgie’s Bridal on May 5.

few did slip out the door without really even showing her how the dress looked on them. “The dress will have to be fitted quite tight,” said Martens. “If they truly can’t afford one, then they’re not going to be able to afford alterations. So this time, I think I’ll just make sure I spend time with each person.” With a little experience under her belt, she’s booked someone to help her out, come giveaway day, this year on Thursday, May 5. Ultimately, though, she says giving the dresses away has really taught her that there are so many people out there in need. “I’ve always thought it would be really neat to be a hockey player or a movie star, to be a somebody who could really help people,” she said. “This way, I get to do that.” As Martens pays for each sample dress she showcases, the 20-dress giveaway amounts to thousands of dollars out of her own pocket.

Southern Interior residents measure up for major cancer study The numbers are inâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than 1,100 Southern Interior residents participated in the B.C Generations Project Kelowna clinic held earlier this year, part of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; largestever heath research study. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Kelowna, we experienced perhaps the most enthusiastic community to date,â&#x20AC;? said Marilyn Borugian, director of the project under the B.C. Cancer Agency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Participants seemed eager to bring in their friends and relatives, and to pass on the word among work friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was our first clinic outside the Lower Mainland, and we are happy to say that Southern Interior residents have met and exceeded our original expectations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Kelowna experience has set the bar high for future clinics in B.C.â&#x20AC;? Borugian said 1,100 people have been added to the growing numbers of British Columbians committed to making a lasting contribution to the health of future generations through this study. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recognize the value of this research. It is not a cumbersome or difficult study to participate in,â&#x20AC;? said one Kelowna participant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It keeps me aware of my own health,â&#x20AC;? said another local participant. Many others agreed that the study raised their awareness of their own health and how easy it was to participate in something that could benefit many others in the future. John Spinelli, head of Cancer Control Research at the B.C. Cancer Agency and the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal investigator, said those who were unable to attend the clinic during January can still take part in the BC Generations Project. Simply call toll free at 1-877-675-8221 or go online at www.bcgenerationsproject.ca to request a study package.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a matter of 30 minutes, you can make a major difference for future generations,â&#x20AC;? Spinelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your participation could help protect your children and grandchildren from getting cancer and other chronic diseases.â&#x20AC;? The B.C. Cancer Agency, an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority, launched the project in 2009 to explore how genetics, environment, lifestyle, and behaviour contribute to our risk of developing cancer, as well as other chronic

conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Funded primari-

NEWS W RUTLAND HOSPITAL AUXILIARY

Major donation will provide new medical equipment The Rutland Hospital Auxiliary will make a $500,000 donation to support the Take Care, Take Part Capital Campaign for Kelowna General Hospital. The auxiliary’s donation will help support the purchase of new equipment for the Centennial Tower. Additional space, new technology and services, opportunities for on-site learning for medical students, and a commitment to improving patient care is the focus for this capital expansion. Operating since 1963, the Rutland Hospital Auxiliary has donated over $3.6 million to the KGH Foundation in the last three decades alone. The mandate of the auxiliary is to provide support to enhance the comfort and care of patients at the hospital. The $500,000 donation will help furnish the Medical Device Reprocessing Department in the new Centennial Tower. Outfitted with the newest technology and equipment, this department is responsible to ensure every medical instrument and piece of equipment is sterilized, assembled and sorted appropriately for all procedures performed at KGH. “This is an outstanding commitment from the Rutland Hospital Auxiliary,” said Karen BorringOlsen, the capital campaign chair. “The volunteers in the Rutland Hospital Auxiliary are committed to improving patient care. “Through this donation, they will make a direct and meaningful impact in the care of every patient at KGH.” The Centennial Tower is a six-storey patient care tower that will consist of a new emergency department four times the current size. It will also include an expanded ambulatory care department where day surgery procedures will be streamlined to increase efficiencies and patient comfort. With the addition of 360,000 square feet, KGH will be able to provide modern, efficient care now, and will continue to meet the needs of our growing population in the future. “At some point in life, every person in our com-

munity will require services at KGH. That is why we think it’s so important

to ask everyone to be part of the Take Care, Take Part campaign,” said Bor-

ring-Olsen. “The KGH Foundation has raised $4.5 mil-

lion towards its $6 million campaign goal. We are grateful for the ex-

traordinary support and commitment of our donors and volunteers. We

look forward to reaching our goal within the next 12 months.”

Saying goodbye to some lawn I â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a lazy gardener. Lawn is too highmaintenance for me. Besides, I want that space to grow other plants so I can enjoy lots of bloom that will entice birds and butterflies to come to my garden. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I got rid of my lawn. From spring, when I moved into my house, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t water it. By the end of June, the lawn had gone brown. It was growing on almost pure sand, so I was sure I had killed it, but a week of rain at summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end turned it lush and green again. So, I moved on to plan Bâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sheet mulching. My friend, who lives just two blocks away, had done this successfully on

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele her water-retentive soil. In two to six months her lawn was rotted and the ground was ready to plant. I cut a small area of grass very short, soaked the ground well and covered it with a quarter-inchthick, overlapping-layer of wet newspaper. (Cardboard works even better.) This was topped with four inches of steer manure, and watered in heavily. I checked at two

months, then six months. After 18 months I gave up. No rotting had occurred. I could still read the newspaper under the mulch. This method obviously did not work on sandy, fast-draining soil and my problem was compounded by thirsty tree roots. Next came plan Câ&#x20AC;&#x201D; turf removal. I hired a strong man to operate a rented turf cutter. He quickly removed all the turf from the front and sides of my corner lot. Next he rototilled four inches of steer manure into the bare soil and it was ready to plant. To avoid nicking tree roots, which causes suckering, I cut the lawn very short under the trees and

covered it with flippedover turf to kill it. My yard now requires much less time to maintain than tending a manicured lawn. It includes gardens for dry sunny spots, with Mediterranean plants, native plants, and butterfly plants; a dry shade garden under a tree; and a mixed area of shrubs, ornamental grasses, perennials and self seeding annuals. The only place I regularly water is in three raised vegetable beds. Gardening in my front yard has been a great way to meet my neighbours. I call this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;creating community one front yard at a time.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; To estimate how much water your lawn uses, ways to improve the lawn

The outbreak of tuberculosis in the Central Okanagan, first declared in January 2009, is ongoing with a total of 31 active cases identified over the past three years and new cases identified in the first three months of 2011. Transmission has largely been in the City of Kelowna, affecting mostly the homeless and street-oriented population. The initial case was first identified in May 2008, and further cases through the fall of 2008 led to the initial declaration of the outbreak. “The pattern of the outbreak thus far indicates there is a relatively low risk to the general population of Kelowna, as TB transmission requires significant close exposure, usually for a prolonged period of time to a person with active TB who displays symptoms such as coughing,” said Dr. Rob Parker, medical health officer with Interior Health. “The majority of the cases thus far have occurred among individuals who are homeless or dealing with addictions, with a handful of cases among staff and workers who provide direct ongoing services to the atrisk population. “However, it is an airborne disease, so it would not be unexpected to potentially see some cases occur in the general population at some time. It is also important for all area residents to understand that no matter which population and individuals this disease is affecting, it is still a community issue and requires the community pulling together to solve.” Since the outbreak was first identified, Interior Health has been working with physicians, health workers and community agencies to identify people at risk for TB and provide support to individuals at risk with screening, health monitoring, treatment and support for those with TB and follow-up of their contacts. “This issue is as much about homelessness as it is about TB,” said Dr. Parker. “I believe we need renewed efforts to support the local agencies and shelters in order to provide better shelter housing and long-term housing solutions. The agencies providing shelter resources in Kelowna have been doing a fabulous job at working to minimize risk in the shelter facilities, and working with us to prevent cases and identify early symptom onset anyone who might have TB. But the reality is that the shelter facilities are just too crowded and must be improved to ensure airborne transmission doesn’t continue to occur.” Tuberculosis is a treatable condition when identified early. One of the keys to TB outbreak control is identification and treatment of newly infectious cases early in their symptom onset. A second key outbreak control measure is to identify, through skin testing, those who may be recently infected, but are not yet sick with TB, and get them started on preventative medication. A third and final key is to prevent transmission occurring in close-contact settings in the most at-risk population. Treatment of active TB is usually provided for a period of nine to 12 months.

Two Harleys may be better than one Now in its 5th year, the Kelowna & District Safety Council’s most popular raffle prize fundraiser is back. This Father’s Day, one lucky winner will win two 2011 Harley Davidson Sportsters as well as a 32 hour Learn to Ride course from KDSC. The bikes being raffled are a black 1200cc Sportster and a birtch white and sedona orange 883 Super Low Sportster.

The total prize value is $25,869.52. “We’re just into our third week of sales, but the raffle has been going really well so far,” said Tania Meyer, executive director of the safety council. “People love the idea of the two Harleys as it gives them lots of options—they could keep one and sell one, sell them both and trade up, keep one and give the other to a spouse, or keep them both

and ride one on Saturday and one on Sunday.” Only 3,500 tickets are being sold, and ticket prices are $20 each or 3/$50. KDSC is expecting an early sell-out again this year. The 3/$50 tickets typically sell out by the May long weekend, so if people want discounts on multiple tickets they should get them while they’re still available. The winner will be an-

onflicting advice abounds about what dietary supplements or medicines we should take in order to maintain optimal health. One vitamin supplement that has received a lot of attention over the past 10 years is vitamin D. We have long been advised of the importance of this vitamin for the body’s tabsorption of calcium and rhave also heard of many other health benefits associated with vitamin D tconsumption, such as lower rates of chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes and more. t Dozens of studies seem to support the idea that vitamin D is critically important. What’s more, we’ve been told that most people living in our part of the world do not get enough of this vital nutrient from our diets or sun exposure. So it was a bit confusing for many people when the U.S. Institute of Medicine reported a few months ago that vitamin

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer D supplements were unnecessary for most people and potentially harmful. This announcement shed some light on a disparity between what is often touted in the media and what scientific research is held by governments and physicians as evidence of the effectiveness of a given substance. Most scientists believe the randomized clinical trial is the only acceptable way to prove the effectiveness of a treatment—whether pharmaceutical or a dietary supplement such as vitamin D. Typically these involve comparing the effects of a treatment against those of a placebo. Health Canada makes its recommendations for Canadians based on the

existing body of evidence for any given treatment. In the case of many dietary supplements including vitamin D, the majority of the evidence currently available comes not from randomized clinical trials but from observational studies of the health of populations who get high levels of a particular substance. These studies observe in the real world and although thought to be inferior to a controlled clinical trial, they try to make up for that by using very large sample sizes—some following up to 50,000 people—and then applying statistical techniques to figure out results. According to these studies, high levels of vitamin D are thought to be beneficial. To date, the data collected in controlled trials has been a little more inconclusive and more research is needed before the scientific community or the governing health agencies are willing to make a stronger recommendation.

I agree with the science. The clinical trial is the only real way to prove the effectiveness of a treatment. That said, if a clinical trial for a given treatment is impossible or delayed due to lack of funding or interest, we still have to act on the information that is available. That is and always has been the nature of medicine. In the case of vitamin D—the current Health Canada recommendations are 400 IU/day for children aged 0-1, 600 IU/day for children and adults aged 1-70 and 800 IU/ day for people over age 70. Adults should not get more than 4000 IU/day. The upper intake levels for children can be found on the Health Canada website at www.hc-sc. gc.ca/fn-an/nutrition/vitamin/vita-d-eng.php

Credits are the currency of a post-secondary education Y ou hear a lot about credit these days: people with good credit, those with bad credit and some who wish they didn’t get all that credit two years ago. But credit isn’t always about banking, the economy or having to carry plastic cards in your wallet. In the academic world of post-secondary education we live and breathe a credit system. For example, most ac-

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens ademic courses are usually three credits. This means that a student who completes Okanagan College’s English 150 course successfully will be awarded three aca-

demic credits. This student can use these credits toward an Okanagan College associate degree, or diplomas in Media and Cultural Studies, Writing and Publishing, Journalism Studies, Criminal and Social Justice or Business Administration. He or she can also apply these three credits of English to a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. This student can also

apply to have these credits transferred to any university in the province. Once the course and its credits are transferred, these credits can be used towards just about any degree offered at most postsecondary institutions, as many degrees require students to complete at least six credits in English. These credits would probably be accepted at most universities across the country in that they apply to a first-year Eng-

lish course. I also suspect that some Okanagan College students have received transfer credit for this course at colleges or universities outside of Canada. Achieving a credential such as a certificate, degree or diploma, requires a certain amount of credits. Academic certificates tend to require 24 credits and diplomas often demand that students com-

plete 60 credits. A bachelor’s degree usually requires 120 credits. Within these credits, students are expected to meet specific credit requirements. For example, a student who wanted to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in history would need to complete a minimum of 48 history credits. Most history courses are worth three credits each, which means the student would have to complete a minimum of 16 history courses. On top of this, students would need to make sure that within these 48 credits (16 courses) at least 30 credits (10 courses) were numbered 300 or higher. This is called an upper-level requirement which means that to get your Bachelor of Arts degree you need to make sure you complete the required first, second, third and fourth-year courses. If this same student wanted to complete a minor in English they would have to make sure they complete at least 30 credits (10 courses) in English with at least 18 credits (six courses) in English courses numbered 300 or higher.

If this sounds straight forward, that’s great— but not all degrees follow these rules. A number of degrees require you to complete specific courses and without having credit for these courses students cannot graduate. Other degrees require more than 120 credits. Program requirements will sometimes require that you need three credits of electives. This means that student can choose whatever three-credit course they want to take as long as it gives them three credits. You will also see other rules such as three credits of arts electives. This means that the course must be an arts course. And in some cases you will see three credits of mathematics at the 200-level, which means you have to complete one course in mathematics that is numbered in the 200s. So, credit is a good thing at colleges and universities. The more credit a student receives the closer they are to graduation.

Speak up now about city’s housing needs Get ready to have your say on housing in Kelowna through a short survey aimed at understanding the current and future housing needs of the city. The online survey can be found at kelowna.ca/cityprojects, now through April 22. “We are looking at different ways to improve the housing situation in Kelowna, but we need to ensure any initiative the City undertakes matches the needs of residents,” said Theresa Eichler, the City of Kelowna’s community planning manager. Currently, the city allocates $320,000 of its tax revenues to affordable housing initiatives such as proving grants for affordable rental housing and establishing partnerships with different levels of government. The city traditionally influences housing supply through land use management, such as zoning, policy and design regulation. This survey is part of the consultation process for the City’s Housing Strategy that began in 2010. The city is now looking to determine whether the public would support new measures, including the use of municipal tax revenue, to improve the housing supply.

Rockets face uphill battle in second round of playoffs Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

As uphill climbs go, the one the Kelowna Rockets face is formidable, to say the least. In order to prolong their Western Hockey League campaign beyond the second round of the playoffs, the Rockets must beat the Western Conference-champion Portland Winterhawks three consecutive times in a span of four nights. The first step comes Friday in hostile territory as the Rockets visit the talent-laden Hawks in Game 5 at the Rose Garden in Portland. Still, as daunting as it all may sound, captain Tyson Barrie isn’t ready to close the door on the 2010-11 season, let alone his days in a Kelowna Rockets uniform. “Obviously the boys know what we’re up

against, but there’s no quit in any of us,” said Barrie, a draft pick of the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche who will, in all likelihood, play pro next season. “I think we’ve played right with them, things just haven’t gone our way. I’m definitely not ready to be finished. We know we can beat them, so we need to start Friday night and get it back to Kelowna for Game 6.” Since stealing the series opener last Thursday in Portland, the Rockets haven’t had much success in muffling Portland’s big guns: namely Ryan Johansen and Nino Niederreiter. The pair of NHL firstround picks have combined for six goals and seven assists in the last three games—6-3, 5-4 and 4-2 victories by Portland. Johansen supplied the backbreaker on Wed-

nesday night in Kelowna, beating Adam Brown five-hole on breakaway with under four minutes remaining. “We have to find an answer for No. 19 (Johansen),” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “He’s created the bulk of the offense for them, him and Niederreiter have pretty much been carrying them. We need an answer, something to slow them down.” Still, as much misery as the Hawks duo has caused for Kelowna, Huska credits his Rockets for playing two solid home games without the desired results. “We feel like with the way we played, we could have come out with two wins,” said Huska, whose Rockets trail Portland three games to one after sweeping Prince George in round one. “We thought we deserved better. We were one or two plays

series. We just need to keep battling.”

If anything gives the Rockets cause for opti-

mism it’s their ability to grind out wins on the road. Kelowna had a better record away from home this season than at Prospera Place and, thanks to a 5-1 triumph in Game 1, proved they can win in Portland. Huska assured that his club isn’t making the lengthy trek to Oregon just for an obligatory appearance. “We still think this is doable,” he said. “We’re not driving all the way down there just to play a game…we’re going down there to win. We feel like we’re still in this.” If the Rockets can find a way to solve the Winterhawks on Friday, Game 6 would be played Sunday, 5 p.m. at Prospera Place. A seventh and deciding game, if needed, would go Tuesday back in Portland. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Turek to return for 4th season with Sun Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The offer to return to his hometown of Winnipeg to play CIS football this season was an attractive proposition for Dan Turek. But just not alluring enough for the 6-foot-3 receiver to close the book on his junior days with the Okanagan Sun. Turek confirmed this week he’ll return for his fourth season with the

B.C. Football Conference club, rather than begin a university career with the Manitoba Bisons. “I was kind of 50-50 about it for a while, which way I was going to go,” said Turek, 20, who drew interest from three CIS schools. “I talked it over with my parents and I felt like it was the right thing to stay in Kelowna. I love the city, it’s a great organization, and I just decided to stick it out here for another year. There’s some

Dan Turek unfinished business…I don’t have that championship under my belt and

that’s something I feel like we have a great shot at getting this year.” Turek has put up some hefty numbers in his three seasons in orange and brown—112 catches for 2,238 yards and 17 majors. The BCFC rookie of the year in 2008 and an all-Canadian in 2009, Turek joined forced with Matt Scheurwater to form one of junior football’s most feared receiving duos. With Scheurwater

since having graduated from the program, Turek’s return is welcome news for the Sun coaching staff. “Danny coming back means a great deal to the team,” said Sun offensive coordinator Tony Lindsay. “He’s a weapon that’s hard to replace. He almost went to U of M last year too, so to get him back is a boost to our offense. He puts up some pretty nice numbers, so it’s exciting to have him back.” And Turek fully ex-

pects the Sun offense, as a whole, to put up some big numbers this season. With plenty of competition at all positions expected at both the spring and main camps, the surehanded receiver from Winnipeg has never been more excited about the club’s potential. “There’s going to be a lot of new faces, a lot of good players coming into challenge for jobs,” said Turek. “We’ve always had the best receiving corps in

She is well known to head coach Heather Semeniuk who has watched Sadler’s progress over the last five years during UBCO’s summer camps. “She’s a kid that’s asked me, ‘What do I work on? What do I work on? What do I work on?’ at the end of every camp,” said Semeniuk. Sadler, who played away from the spotlight of B.C. high school ball in the Golden, proved herself as one of the quickest and most energized players during the Heat’s ID camp on April 3. “She’s a kid from a more remote area, without the opportunity for a lot of exposure,” said Semeniuk. “She just decided in Grade 8, ‘This is where I want to come’.

High school golf opener On a cold and windy day, the Immaculata Mustangs claimed the team title at the first event of the season on the Central Okanagan’s high school golf tour. Paced by Steve Lee’s 75, the Mustangs finished with a 323 total Monday at the Harvest Golf Club, 15 strokes better than Mt. Boucherie. The rest of the Im-

maculata team featured John Mlikotic (78), Michael Lee (79), Jimmy Bobyn, Colin Hasick and James Casorso. The lowest individual score was posted by Brandon Ortiz of KSS with a 73. Steven Lee was second overall at 75, while Uday Suri of the Bears was third at 76. Lionel Taylor (Grade 10) of Rutland came in at

78 along with Mlikotic. Due in large part to the weather, the three girls in the field quit after nine holes of play. Two of them played for the Owls, so with incomplete scores, KSS didn’t qualify for the team event. The next tour event is next Monday at the KeSee Briefs A31

Yassine Ghomari is back. The 6-foot guard from Vancouver has committed to the UBC Okanagan Heat men’s basketball squad for the 2011-12 Canada West Conference season. Ghomari last played in Kelowna in 200708 when he helped the Okanagan Lakers to a silver medal at the BCCAA championship. Part of Ghomari’s motivation for returning to Kelowna was Heat head coach Darren Semeniuk. “He’s one of the best coaches I’ve ever had,”

Yassine Ghomari said Ghomari. “We get along well, and he was a big factor for sure. He knows the game well… and he just gets the best

out of his players.” Following the 2007-08 season, Ghomari moved back to his native Vancouver where he worked and attended Langara College. He played for the Falcons in 2009-10 where he was named a provincial all-star, before joining the University of Victoria program last year. However, he didn’t end up playing with Vikes. Head coach Semeniuk said Ghomari is a welcome addition to the UBCO squad. “Yassine is a very tough player who loves to compete. When I re-

cruited him out of high school I always thought of him as a CIS player, never as a college player,” said Semeniuk. “I really like the fact that Yassine is going to take the court, regardless of opponent, with intimidation never being a factor.” In addition to the anticipation of re-joining his former program, Ghomari looks forward to the challenge of competing at the CIS level. “The players are more skilled, a lot of bigger, and stronger. We’re going to have to hit the weight room.”

Kelowna’s version of the Canadian Tenpin Mixed Bowling Championships turned out be the most popular one yet. There were 501 entries from nearly 200 bowlers at the 2011 tournament held last weekend at the McCurdy Bowling Centre, breaking the former standard of 458 entries set three years ago in Winnipeg. The championships— co-hosted by McCurdy and the Kelowna Tentpin Bowling Association—were held over four days in Kelowna and, as a mixed handicapped revent, featured bowlers of all abilities competring against one another in singles, doubles and team formats. “We’re quite happy about the fact that we set a new record for entries,” tsaid McCurdy general manager Merlin Bunnage. “People that came in for the tournament were quite satisfied, they seemed to enjoy the bowling, the ffood and the city. It was a really good event.” Of the approximately 60 local bowlers, no one had more success throughout the weekend than Mc-

Senior Raiders to bounce back Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Raidersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; four-year reign as the Okanagan Extreme Lacrosse League champs ended abruptly in 2010. With a blend of youth and speed, the new-look Raiders are seeking a return to power in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a changing of guard this year,â&#x20AC;? said Raiders manager Jules Morris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the older guys have packed it in, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a younger team than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in the past, with most guys under 25. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be an exciting and faster team to watch, and the players are already having fun with it.â&#x20AC;? Kelowna will launch the new senior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lacrosse campaign Friday night at home to the Armstrong Shamrocks. Face off at Memorial Arena is 7:30 p.m. Longtime local player Doug Manning will coach the offensive side of the club, while Khris Scott has taken on the defensive coaching duties. Veteran leadership for the Raiders will come from Kyle Maclennan and Pho Heng.

Youth and energy will be supplied by the likes of Braden Renner, Jared Maclennan, rookie Luke Bailey, Victor Wiens and Jacob Illichmann. Eric Wray is returning home after five years in Finland and will take on some of the netminding duties. After dominating the Okanagan circuit from 2006 to 2009, the Raiders came back down to earth last season and were eliminated from the opening round of the playoffs. Morris said the coaches and players alike are committed to regaining that patented Raider form. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coaches have been spending a lot of time with our players, getting them prepared and getting back to being a competitive team again,â&#x20AC;? Morris added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started on the wrong foot last year, had some personnel problems and just never really recovered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a bit shorter of a roster, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring up some of our hottest young juniors during the season to get them playing time and learn the senior game. As a team, the guys want to get back

to having fun again and there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of that last year.â&#x20AC;? The Raiders tuned up for the new campaign at an Icebeaker tournament last weekend in Armstrong. Kelowna played well in an 8-6 loss to a senior B team from Spruce Grove, then posted wins over both Kamloops and Vernon. Kelowna will be joined this season in OXLL by Kamloops, Vernon and Armstrong, with each team playing 12 regular season games.

JUNIOR RAIDERS

The Kelowna Raiders will be the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only team in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League this season. Due to fewer players in the 17- to 21-yearold range locally, the Rutland Raiders and Kelowna Warriors have joined forces. The junior Raiders will open their regular season April 21 at home to the Kamloops Venom. The league will also feature the Kamloops Rattlers, Vernon Tigers, Armstrong Shamrocks and South Okanagan Flames.

NEWS W UBC OKANAGAN FORUM

High school students to join conversation about genocide UBC Okanagan will host the third annual Holocaust and Genocide Education Forum on April 28. The forum will bring together community members, UBC scholars, students from Grades 11 and 12, and victims of genocide or the Holocaust in a discussion of the causes and consequences of genocide. The forum aims to use education and self-awareness to prevent future occurrences of genocide. “This is an important initiative because both here at home and internationally civil unrest can turn into a genocidal

policy, as history shows,” said Claude Desmarais, Reichwald professor in Germanic studies. “Teaching the leaders of tomorrow about past genocide and introducing them to survivors of genocide and their narratives is essential to creating awareness about the injustices that have been perpetrated in the past. “As our world faces increasing turmoil for a variety of reasons, including demands for more democracy and climate change, the need to actively fight against the factors and events that lead to genocide becomes more and more

important.” The forum, which is free and open to the public, takes place April 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the University Centre building, room UNC 200. Anyone interested in attending should register by April 21 at www.web.ubc.ca/okanagan/ctl/support/resources/register. Panelists and presenters at this year’s forum are: • Adam Jones—professor of political science, Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences.

Energy Option Decision

Council directed staff not to pursue a potential property owner financing option to encourage renewable energy improvements. The decision was based mainly on the fact that the Community Charter does not give local governments the jurisdiction to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements on individuals’ property taxes.

Rio favourite subject for director

C

Grand 10 Landmark

arlos Saldanha is not a household name, but you know his work. He has directed or co-directed most of Blue Sky Studios’ films which includes all three Ice Age movies and Robots.

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis Saldanha left his native Rio de Janeiro to follow his dream of becoming an animator so naturally his latest film is his dream project. Rio is set in that Brazilian city and is about a rare Spix Macaw named Blu who cannot fly. Blu is captured and taken to Minnesota where he is subsequently abandoned in the middle of winter. He is found by a woman named Linda who befriends and raises the young bird. Fast forward 15 years later, a scientist from Rio tells Linda that Blu is the last male of the species and he needs to take him back home to mate to preserve the species. However the last female is fiercely independent and together they escape on an adventure into the rainforests of Brazil where they meet a menagerie of vivid characters. Expect a heart-warming story, colourful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music and family-friendly song and dance—all in 3D. Rated General with a warning of violence, Rio features the voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Tracy Morgan, Will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch and Neil Patrick Harris. Back in 1996, screenwriter Kevin Williamson and director Wes Craven revitalized the slasher film genre with Scream, very successfully blending satire of horror movies with honest-to-goodness scares. Over 10 years after the last sequel was released, the producers thought it was time for a new trilogy.

All horror conventions are back on the table as Campbell’s character, Sidney Prescott, returns to her hometown on the 15th anniversary of the original killings to promote her new self-help book. However, she is not alone

as slasher-killer Ghostface returns, this time taking his cues from modern horror movie remakes. Rated 14A with a warning of frequent violence. If you ever asked why there isn’t more political satire opera, your wait is over. Mulroney: The Opera is described as a joyously irreverent comedy, tragedy and thoroughly epic portrayal of contemporary political life in Canada with an original operatic score. More than just an entertaining way to revisit

the years before and after Brian Mulroney became our 18th prime minister, it is a chance to see politicians like Pierre Trudeau and Ronald Reagan in comic opera form. This is a must see for anyone who likes comic opera and political satire. Rated General with coarse language, it shows Saturday morning at the Grand 10 Cinemas. Check www.landmarkcinemas.ca for its showtime. Rick Davis is the manager of Capitol Theatre. capitol_wes@landmarkcinemas.ca

able to listen to his performance for a good deal longer as his January engagement is about to become the first live album to be released of the online performances that have taken place at the venue. As booking agent for Streaming Café Michael Donley said LePoidevin’s performance was really what earned him the special release. “He played here in March 2010 and we were just kind of really impressed and blown away by him,” he said. When he returned in January, the stripped down concert he presented sealed the deal. Playing on his own, without even a drummer to accompany him, LePoidevin pulled out a ukulele and a guitar for a solid, simple set. “It was the new year, it was January, it was really quite simple,” he said. “The album, I think, is pretty rough. It has all of my banter in it and it really feels like you’re in the room.” The album will be distributed at LePoidevin’s performances and at the Streaming Café.

He is known for incorporating a wide assortment of instrumentation into his shows and for generally putting in a very high energy performance.

Vancouver celebrates our wines

H

ad a tremendous experience at the International Playhouse Wine Festival in Vancouver. It is always a thrill to see our vast array of wineries in line with those on the world stage. I never tire of hearing the rave reviews about our beautiful Okanagan Valley from our international visitors—like Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Famous French restaurateur and super chef, Jean-Georges, (The New York Times Food critic Ruth Reichl once claimed: “His food took my breath away”) thrilled our B.C. food world in 2009 by choosing Vancouver to open his first Canadian restaurant, MARKET. Located in the chic Shangri-la Hotel downtown, I had the absolute pleasure of making his acquaintance. Local celeb chef Bernard Casavant and I also had the opportunity to extend an invitation to Vongerichten to come visit us and tour our splendid wine country. I am crossing my fingers. On your next visit to Vancouver, don’t miss a chance to experience MARKET. If you should find the dining room too expensive, have a seat in the sexy lounge area. The bar menu offers up gorgeous choices, like our absolute favourite: Truffle and fontina pizza (ridiculously delicious). And, while our week was wine-focused, my foodist posse and I also partook in the hot cocktail trend that is thriving in the

FOOD & WINE TRAILS

Jennifer Schell city—MARKET’s blueberry sangria was a favourite. No surprise, Vancouver mixologist extraordinaire Jay Jones now runs their bar. www.jean-georges. com For lunch, I highly recommend a new hot spot that offers fantasy nosh for the carnivore: Meat & Bread. Located on Cambie Street in the super cool Gastown district, this eatery serves up—you guessed it—meat sandwiches. Although soup and salad are also offered as a side, they are all about meat and bread with the signature porchetta sandwich being a favourite. With one type of bottled beer to choose from, and a couple of sandwich constants like meatball and grilled cheese plus a daily special, M&B is simple and absolutely delicious. Décor is shabby chic with interesting touches (I believe offering glimpses from this historic building’s colourful past) like boxing gloves and a punching bag. Patrons are seated at the bar or around one long communal table. Owned by three young, handsome lads who are busily build-

ing your samies behind the bar, the place is buzzing with conversation and happy, messy diners. Prepare to leave with drips and crumbs on your bib. Meat & Bread, 370 Cambie St. at Victory Square. More on my Van-

couver food diary next week—think chocolates and bone marrow.

Impact on our lives

Volunteers from A35 ages, who help in a variety of positions throughout the Mission each week. Currently the Gospel Mission is looking for barbers and hairdressers who can help in the bar-

ber shop. They are also in need of fashion minded people with a sense of fun and style to help in the Mission’s Thrift Store. If you’d like to become part of a great group of volunteers, and are interested in helping at the Gospel Mission, please contact

Sonja Nelson at 250-7633737, extension 204. “I volunteer at the Mission because of the laughs and the company, and because I help in the kitchen I now cook better at home,” said volunteer Doug. Kelowna’s Gospel

Mission is also preparing for its annual Easter Dinner—turkey, ham, all the fixin’s and dessert will be served. The dinner is on Saturday, April 23, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Gospel Mission on Leon Avenue. Anyone in need is welcome to come out for

this celebration. For these and other volunteer opportunities do a search on the Kelowna Community Resources web site: www.kcr. ca. Create your own volunteer profile by selecting areas that interest you. The computer will send

you email notices when volunteering opportunities match your interests. Dawn Wilkinson is the coordinator for the Community Information and Volunteer Centre. 250-763-8008, ext 24 informkelowna@kcr.ca www.kcr.ca

Predictions about the federal election campaign fallout I ’m going out on a limb and predicting what will happen in this federal election. • Barn burner No. 1: MP Ron Cannan will be re-elected. I know. What a shocker. We elect Conservatives. What else is new? It doesn’t help that he’s a nice guy, works hard and brought us a passport office. Still, the other candidates need to keep him accountable. So, fire the shots. Bring up the dirt. Tell him he spells his name funny. Whatever it takes. Democracy must still plod on. • Barn burner No. 1A: The Conservative candidate who was shotgunned into the Okanagan-Coquihalla riding to replace Stockwell Day will also get elected. Darn those Conservatives, um, I mean Liberals…or NDP…or Bloc… for triggering an election so quickly. • Prophesy No. 2: The Green Party will not get an MP. By the numbers, the Greens should have a person or two in Parliament. But, they won’t. Green may be keen, but it’s not enough to knock out the big guys. It’s especially frustrating, however, when a party that doesn’t field MP candidates outside a certain province can fill seats on the national level. • Prediction No. 3: Voter turnout will be pretty dismal, like last time and the time before and next time. Unfortunately, it’s more exciting to go to Walmart than the polling station and watch American Idol rather than election results. We whine, we complain and we curse the leaders, but one-third of us don’t even bother to

NUTSHELL

Shelley Nicholl vote. The non-voters say things like “I hate all the bums.” That may be true, but we still have to elect one of them. Rotten democracy. It would easier to live in a dictatorship. • Prediction No. 4: Prime Minister Stephen Harper will say “coalition” 183,879 times before we vote. I believe he’s already up to 15,807. • Prediction No. 5: Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff will not say coalition, ever, and never respond directly to the question. I believe that’s already not happened, 3,809 times. • Prediction No. 6: NDP leader Jack Layton will put on a jacket only eight times. Maybe seven. • Prediction No. 7: Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe will disagree—with something. • Prediction No. 8: Has already come about: The televised debate was boring without Green leader Elizabeth May. • Prediction No. 9: Former Liberal leader Stephane Dion will laugh when Ignatieff doesn’t win. • Prediction No. 10: Dion will laugh again when Harper doesn’t get a majority. • Prediction No. 11: We will discover dirty bits about candidates, like: There’s an MP who has stolen money. We will discover a potential MP who has posted too many

WIN! Enter for your chance to

Secret Cove Resort!

risqué photos on Facebook. We will find out that MP Ruby Dhalla is really a Russian spy. • Prediction No. 12: There will not be a rally in Ottawa to overthrow the government before the election. While popular in the Middle East and Africa, Canadians don’t have access to enough weapons. • Prediction No. 13: We will hear statistics that contradict each other. • Prediction No. 14: The Liberals will say, if the Conservatives stay in power, the expected debt in years ahead will be larger than what the Conservatives are saying. Likewise, the other way around. • Prediction No. 15: We will hear promises that we’ve heard before. • Prediction No. 16: We will hear promises that have been broken before.

• Prediction No. 17: We will promise not to listen to promises. • Prediction No. 18: Child care will not be ad-

dressed properly. • Prediction No. 19: The party leaders will say we should have fixed election dates.

• Prediction No. 20: On May 3, the earth will not have shifted. Canada will go on as before. That’s not a bad thing.

THIS IS NICOLE

Five years ago Nicole was drugged and sexually assaulted.

But now she has her smile back. AFTER A GATHERING of friends & family to celebrate her birthday, Nicole was sexually assaulted by an acquaintance who used a drug to incapacitate her. Paralyzed, but awake, all she could do was stare out of the window during the entire assault. It has taken nearly ďŹ ve years to bring her attacker to justice. Her advocate at the Elizabeth Fry Society has been beside Nicole through the whole court process, encouraging her to advocate for her rights, and stick with the process - however slow it was; no matter how hopeless it seemed.

We believe that women and girls can be strong alone, but they can be fearless together. Our services and programs take abuse victims beyond crisis to a future without fear.

Buick turns heads, perceptions with LaCrosse CXS Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

If you want to see how General Motors has turned itself around, take a good look at the 2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS. On our way to a luncheon event, the head of public relations for a German luxury carmaker remarked on the sumptuous interior of the CXS and its wood inlays and French stitching on the leather trim pieces. Trimmed back to four brands (Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, GMC), platforms and drivetrains are still shared but there is a growing delineation between brands where a Chev looks like a Chev and Caddy looks like a Caddy. It’s the simple formula of one brand being a step up that made GM the biggest car company in the world half a century ago. There used to be jokes about people who drove Buicks being doddering oldsters venturing out once a week to buy denture adhesive. Indeed I once saw a study that claimed the average age

of a Buick owner was 80. That changed last year with the arrival of the Canadian-made Buick Regal. Here was a car that shed the old-man image with style, great fuel economy and, for the first time in a long time, a Buick that was entertaining to drive. That also proves to be the case with the 2011 Buick LaCrosse. I was expecting to drive a pillow on four wheels, but such was not the case. Gutsy and very responsive with Buick’s new high performance front suspension on the CXS model as tested here, it felt balanced more like a rear-drive car than the front-driver it is. Buick calls it HiPer Strut. It was engineered to reduce torque steer on acceleration at the same time as absorbing loads on the front tires, like hitting a pothole so the inputs to the fingers on the steering wheel still provide excellent feel. The LaCrosse model lineup is surprisingly diverse starting with the CX powered by GM’s ubiquitous 2.4-litre twin-cam inline four-cylinder with

THE ADVERSITY of GM’s near collapse is resulting in a wave of exciting new cars like the 2011 Buick LaCrosse (CXS model shown) with lithe lines mixed in with signature design cues like the waterfall grille. 182 hp and 172 lb/ft of torque. The other three La-

Crosse versions rely on GM’s other workhorse, the DOHC 3.6-litre V6

with 280 hp and 259 lb/ ft of torque. The 2.4-litre is an option on the mid-

range CXL. All versions of the LaCrosse are equipped with a six-speed

with sequential shift capability. While front-wheeldrive is standard, the CXL optionally offers a Haldex-based all-wheel-drive system the same as Audi uses. With an electronic limited slip differential, up to 80 per cent of torque can be sent to the rear wheels for the most traction. In all other circumstance, the system routes traction to the wheels with most grip. Later in the year Buick LaCrosse will add the eAssist model that uses a state-of-the-art 115volt lithium-ion battery system and latest-generation 15-kW electric motor-generator to enable regenerative braking, which takes place anytime the driver is off the throttle. As handsome as the exterior is, it’s the interior that surprises not by just its elegance, but its size, especially the back seat. In all dimensions, headroom, hip room, shoulder room and legroom between the front and rear are nearly identical. Legroom for instance is 1,059/991 mm (41.7/39.0 in) front/rear. All that space in the back results in the trunk being on the small size at 363 litres (12.8 cu ft) but is augmented by the 60/40 split/fold rear seat back. The CXS as tested here includes almost two pages of features as listed in the brochure, running from a full suite of driver and safety aids to heated/ cooled perforated leather seats to the 11-speaker Harman/Kardon 5.1 surround sound system with 384 watts of power or a three-prong 120-volt household power plug. If you want, the 3.6-litre is rated to tow 454 kg (1,000 lbs). Towing with the 2.4-litre is not advised.

One thing you notice right away is how quiet the LaCrosse is on the road. It wasn’t until I was going through the brochure that I noticed a line about what Buick calls QuietTuning technologies that include gobs of sound deadening materials and acoustic laminated front windows and windshield. On yet another journey to retrieve my son from college for the weekend, the CXS proved a very enjoyable ride with the long legs of the overdrive sixth gear carrying me along at just over 2,000 rpm. Adding to the drive was the dual glass panoramic sunroof, a $1,600 option. Another pricey option fitted was the $5,216 touch screen navigation/ infotainment system. As tested, the CXS was priced at $51,480 including a $1,000 shipping fee from the plant in the U.S. Base price for the LaCrosse CXS is $41,870. Fuel consumption for the V6 in the CXS is rated at 12.2/7.3L/100 km (23/39 mpg) city/highway. Buick has come a long way in a very short time and it is cars like the 2011 LaCrosse that are changing how a lot of people perceive not just the brand, but GM as a whole.

Passat CC â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;coupeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sedan offers new R-Line package Lorne Drury CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

Although the Volkswagen Passat CC design is three years old, it still turns heads as it did in its early days Back then, it was named Best New Family Car over $30K in 2009 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). The four-door sedan with the coupe-like look still has one of the sleekest body styles on the market. My wife and I borrowed a gleaming Candy White CC (CC stands for comfort coupe) in Highline trim a few weeks ago for a weekend road trip from our home in Southern Ontario to Wheeling West Va. It was a six-hour and change hike if you were to drive straight through, but we made a few stops en route to Wheeling, just west of Pittsburgh. We were there to attend an oldies concert at the historic Capitol Theatre in downtown Wheeling. A lengthy drive like that really gives you an idea of what a car is all about.

JIM ROBINSON/CONTRIBUTOR

THE 2011 Volkswagen CC has a coupe-like look in a four-door, four-passenger sport sedan. It was the winner of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) Best New Family Car over $30K in its debut year of 2009. vehicle. At home and during our weekend getaway to the U.S., we became used to seeing people do double takes at the CC as we cruised by. You would expect the stares if you were in a gull-winged Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Sometimes, auto journalists have to make do with short daily commutes on which to base their opinions, but in a perfect world, we would get a chance to take every tester on a road trip because that is where you really get to know the ins and outs of a

or the like, but not in an everyday sport sedan. It was quite surprising considering the CC has been around for three years. To me, the CC is simply a classy-looking vehicle and one that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost its luster even three years into its cycle. The CC is available with two engine

choices for 2011â&#x20AC;&#x201D;a 200 hp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, offered with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) with Tiptronic for manual shifting, or an optional 280 hp 3.6-litre six-cylinder engine, which comes only with the six-speed automatic. The V6 model

also sports 4MOTION allwheel drive. The CC starts with the base Sportline trim, priced at $33,375. The Highline is priced at $39,275, while the Highline V6 is $46,375. My 2.0-litre Highline tester featured the R-Line ($2,220) and Technology ($3,225) Packages, pushing the sticker up to $46,100. R-Line is more of an appearance package than anything and includes 18inch alloy wheels, darkened taillights, body kit package (front bumper and side skirts), RLine sport steering wheel with available DSG paddle shifters, R-Line exterior badging and R-Line aluminum doorsills. Meanwhile, the Technology Package features a touch screen satellite navigation system with 30 GB hard drive, rearview camera and a 10-speaker 600watt Dynaudio sound system. Of course, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the start of the convenience/luxury features on the Highline trim. Included are 12way power front seats with power lumbar support, auto dimming interior mirror, cruise control, digital compass, front fog lights, heatable front

seats and washer nozzles, power heatable and adjustable exterior mirrors, rain senior with automatic wiper speed control, panoramic sun roof, sport suspension with tire pressure monitoring system and multi-function trip computer, and the list goes on. Inside the cabin, the CC is just as nicely styled as on the outside. Even at the base level, the car comes equipped with lots of luxury goodies youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect on an entry-luxury model and the Highline trim adds even more to the mix. The optional 10-speaker, 600-watt Dynaudio digital sound system provides outstanding sound and performance. At six-feet-tall, I found headroom adequate even with the sloping roofline that defines the CC. The rear seats are a bit cramped with tight access, but headroom is adequate, at least for someone of my height. The car seats four, with bucket-like seats in the rear. The 60/40 split rear seats, with centre armrest and pass-through, fold down to increase cargo capacity. See Passat B5

MOTORING W VOLKSWAGEN

Front bucket seats have 12-way power adjustments Passat from B4 The trunk is a generous size with 405 litres (14.3 cu ft) of luggage space. That was plenty big enough for us to fit in a large suitcase and several other odds and ends for our trip south. Speaking of the seats, the front buckets have 12way power adjustments rand power lumbar support, but they feature extreme side bolstering. I have a larger-thanaverage butt and found them a bit hard and uncomfortable, particularly when you have to pull tyourself over the firm side support to get out. However, the bolstering does keep you firmly planted during hard cornering. On a long road trip like ours, you really find out if a vehicle is fun to drive. The CC leaves little doubt this is a driver’s car. The 2.0-litre turbo accelerates briskly thanks to significant low-end torque (0-100 in 7.6 seconds) and handles tight corners with ease. While it’s not a true t performance car it does have a distinct sporty flair. The CC is equally at home on the expressway, eating up the kilometres in smooth, comfortable fashion. However, on washboard surfaces the ride quality deteriorates as the CC’s sport-tuned suspension is set up on the firm side of the ledger. The DSG gearbox is sweet and appears to work effortlessly, shifting quickly and offering power as needed. The speed-sensitive power steering doesn’t offer a lot of feedback, yet is works effortlessly at low speeds like you find in tight parking lots. These minor quibbles aside, the CC is a real driver’s car that offers great looks, solid performance and the luxury features one would expect in an entry-luxury sedan. If you love the ‘coupelike’ look made famous by the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the CC gives it to you at a much lower price.

Panama new pinnacle for Porsche trol function, the new top-of-the-range Panamera sprints to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds; the top track speed is 306 km/h. Yet despite the significantly increased performance, fuel consumption remains at the moderate level of the Panamera Turbo, thanks to things like its efficient seven-speed twin-clutch PDK transmission and automatic stop-start system. In keeping with the sporty concept of the high-performance Panamera, all of the most important driving dynamics control systems as standard. The Sport Chrono Package Turbo, which tunes the suspension and engine for different driving situations, is also fitted as standard, as is a sports exhaust system for an even more engine sound.

trucks, the eStar is considered a Class 2c-3 electric truck, the first in its category. Navistar’s Canadian headquarters are in Burlington. Cost of the eStar is $149,900. The heart of the eStar is a lithium-ion battery ‘cassette’ that sits below the floor between the two axles and can be changed in just 20 minutes. While one cassette is being charged, others can be attached giving the eStar the ability to operate continuously. The eStar has a very large battery measuring 2,523 mm long, 1,283 mm wide and 377 mm tall. It is composed of 16 modules that each contain 178 lithium-ion batteries for a total of 1,248 cells. The battery is rated at 80 kilowatt hours. In normal usage, it can be recharged in 6-8 hours from a 220-volt outlet. Range is 160 km or 100 miles on a single charge. Maximum speed is limited to 50 km/h. Combined to motor/ inverter, the battery produces 70 kilowatts for a rated 102 hp and 221 lb/ft of torque. Navistar sources the chassis from Europe and the battery from the U.S. With a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 12,000 lb, the payload is 4,000 lb. One of the features of the eStar is its 36-ft turning radius. Because the front wheels can steer at up to 50 degrees left or right, it only requires 4.6 turns lock-to-lock. Safety features include anti-lock brakes and electronic brake distribution. One of the more interesting design features is the huge front window that affords the driver up to a 180-degree view ahead. It contains a heating element in the form of a near transparent film imbedded in the glass. The placement of the battery allows for a very low floor that also aids in lowering the centre of gravity.

mains and when regenerative braking is adding to the battery. The eStar will remind many people who have ridden on electric streetcars of the same turbinelike noise when it accelerates and the lateral sense of speed as it leaves from rest. In fact, being low to the ground as well as tall and not as wide as a regular truck, its shape is not

unlike a streetcar as it approaches. Canada Post has more than 7,300 vehicles in its fleet covering from 79 million km every year, so finding a way of cutting fuel costs and emissions is seen as a big deal. Besides the eStar, Canada Post is looking at other technologies such as ethanol, biodiesel, natural gas, propane, hydrogen fuel cells and hybrids.

SAPINSKY, EWALT JACOB BIG MAN - BIG HEART It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing on April 11, 2011, with his family by his side, of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, Ewalt Jacob Sapinsky. He was born Sept 29, 1939 in Swift Current, Saskatchewan but moved to Kelowna in 1948. Ewalt has always considered this his real home. He leaves a great void in the lives of his wife, Kay Henderson, his children Robert (Carolyn), Mary Jane, Christine Lepla, Tannis Moody(Len), Derek Sawley (Shelly), Jordana Servatius (Stacy), grandchildren Jeremy Sapinsky, Stephanie and Jessica Lepla, Wesley, Cameron (Natasha) and Jarrett(Karrie) Burns, Renata and Wade Sawley, Kyle (Ashley), Dane (Kristen), and Riley Servatius, and his brothers John (Sally), Edward (Janice) and his little “doggy”, Fritz.

He then worked for many years for Glenncoe Transport, finishing his career at Cookson Motors. He was well known in the transport industry for his expertise in hauling extremely long loads into very remote places. One of the highlights of his life, was his time with the Kelowna Packers and their tour of Russia and Sweden in 1958. They were the first Canadian team to play behind the iron curtain and maintained the Canadian hockey supremacy. In 2008, they were the first inductees in the Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame. Ewalt was an avid hunter and fisherman. Upon their retirement Ewalt and Kay enjoyed travelling throughout Canada, and more recently, cruising. He especially loved the Alaskan Cruise. Ewalt’s final resting place will be the Rose Garden in the Kelowna City Cemetery. At his request there will be no public service. Donations in Ewalt’s name may be made to the Lung Association, Heart Foundation or a charity of your choice. Kidney disease strikes families, not only individuals.
