Snelson may seek change of venue for trial Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER
We’ll likely know later this month whether or not the defence lawyer for accused killer Neil George Snelson will apply to the court for a change of venue for his trial. Snelson was arrested 16 years after the 1993 death of college student Jennifer Cusworth. If the application goes ahead, it is believed defence will apply for the change of venue based on the argument that the pre-trial publicity in Kelowna has harmed Snelson’s ability to get a fair trial in this city, said Crown counsel Iain Currie. Jurors are regularly instructed to ignore what they may have heard about a case in the past and stay away from media coverage during a trial, and are urged to make their decision about someone’s innocence or guilt based solely on the evidence they hear at trial. However, if a defence lawyer is able to successfully convince a judge Jennifer Cusworth that a case has attracted so much publicity that an accused would be unable to get a fair trial in the city where a crime occurred, the trial could be moved to another city. “It’s not particularly common,” said Currie. “It’s a reasonably high standard.” The death of Cusworth, 19, in October 1993, generated consistent media coverage over the years as her parents regularly made the trip to Kelowna to plead for information about the young woman’s death. Cusworth was last seen alive at a large Richter Street party on Oct. 16, 1993 and her body was found in a Swamp Road ditch the following day. Not long after the 16th anniversary of her death, Snelson was arrested. Snelson is next scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 29, when either the application for a change of venue is brought forward or a trial date is set.

THE RARE VISIT of this little blue heron, seen here plucking a fish from Okanagan Lake at Powers Creek, sent bird
watchers into a frenzy earlier this week. The small white-plumed heron with green legs hails from the U.S. Gulf States region, and sightings have only been recorded three times in B.C.

Birders flock to see rare blue heron Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER
When Westside resident Scott Thomson spotted the dainty, snow-white heron at the outflow of Powers Creek just before dark on Remembrance Day, he knew something was up. “It just wasn’t something I had seen before,” said Thomson, who went home to look up
the bird. By the next morning he had ruffled enough feathers on the bird watcher’s email list—bcintbird—to gather a small crowd on the shoreline at the Westbank Yatch Club. Avocet Tours operator Chris Charlesworth confirmed there was a slight grey tip to the ends of its wings—the clincher which would distinguish this fluffy
youngin’ from a handful of other species options. It was a first-ever sighting of a little blue heron in the B.C. interior. By 7 a.m., word was out that the dainty, gull-sized bird on Okanagan Lake was here to stay long enough for other bird watchers to catch a glimpse. “It’s a really, really rare bird in British Columbia,” said Rick Toochin, a student from the
Chilliwack neighbourhood of Sardis. Toochin jumped in his car and drove to Kelowna as soon as he heard the news. It took him only two hours to make the trip over the Coquihalla Highway—exactly the kind of turnaround needed to secure a bird for your “B.C. list.” “The wife woke me up. My See Birders A3

Birder community enthralled by rare sighting Birders from A1 friend was on the phone. See ya later. Boom. Go. That’s how you do it. If you wait and hesitate, you miss it,” said Toochin. “As soon as you hear about it, the clock is ticking down. You just gotta go.” Toochin logged a 20minute sighting before heading back home to the Fraser Valley. He said his “heart dropped” when he first arrived and the bird could not be found. What makes the little blue heron sighting rare is not the bird itself, but how far off course it is from its native environment. There are 64 known species of herons and the little blue heron is normally found in the southeastern United States. Under normal circumstances, it might make it as far as the State of Maryland during dispersal, after the young leave their mother. Monday morning local bird enthusiast Gwynneth Wilson figured easily 100 people had stopped by for a look, checking out those distinctive grey tips that distinguish the little fellow from a cattle egret, a great egret or a snowy egret— other options those in the know figured this sighting might have been when Thomson made his discovery. Charlesworth, who travels the world taking people on bird watching tours and serves as the regional editor for North American Birds magazine, said the bird-loving community is almost unanimously agreed this is only the third little blue heron sighting in B.C. The first was almost 40 years ago and the second roughly 20—both on the coast. Unfortunately, there is no definitive place to register this event as the provincial rare birds committee is officially defunct.
BIRDWATCHER Rick Toochin, from Chilliwack, jumped in his car on a moment’s notice and drove to Kelowna just to catch a glimpse of a little blue heron, a bird rarely seen in these parts. SEAN CONNOR/CAPITAL NEWS
While most B.C. bird watchers agree the pastime is growing in B.C., what they can’t seem to agree on is how a new provincial rare birds committee can be struck. A disagreement over a Xantus’s hummingbird sighting a handful of years back caused a rift, yet to be repaired. “It’s sort of an interesting bit of bird politics,” Charlesworth said. The committee all agreed it was a Xantus’s, but came unglued over whether it was an escapee from a bird collection or a natural immigrant like the young heron spotted on the Westside last week. To the uninitiated, the episode sounds a bit birdbrained, but birders insist their practices are serious and their work integral to conservation efforts around the world. And the young man who just broke B.C.’s record for the highest number of different bird species spotted in a year, Russell Cannings, is testament to the claim.
MOST OF THE GRASSLAND BIRDS AND THOSE IN OLD GROWTH FORESTS ARE DECLINING RAPIDLY. Richard Cannings
Russell’s Big Year, as his now famous blog is called, won attention all over North America last month when he spotted his 366th bird, shattering the record previously held by Mike Toochin, Rick Toochin’s older brother, by beating him with three months to go until year’s end. Cannings was featured in the Vancouver Sun, was the talk of the town on New York-based bird blogs, made it onto CBC Radio’s As it Happens and will be in several nature magazines to come out within the year. The attention demonstrates how interested people are in birds and in
nature in general. “Almost everywhere I go people ask: “Are you the guy doing the big year?” he said. Cannings has a cause he wants to direct his support-base toward—saving a very rare habitat just south of his Penticton home. “Strategically, it’s really good to do a big year,” he said. “It just shows how diverse this province is.” As his father Richard Cannings explains, the birds demonstrate the impact issues like global warming and development have on the natural environment. “They act, if you can mix metaphors, like the canary in the coal mine,” said the older Cannings, a well-known biologist and one of B.C.’s preeminent bird experts. “Most of the grassland birds and those in old growth forests are declining rapidly,” he explained. While it would be difficult to identify different types of mice as they’re
nocturnal and tend to look alike, it’s relatively easy to spot and identify a bird, so people are willing to provide the data necessary to hone in on these problems. “With birds we have this literal army of very keen volunteers across the world,” he said. Cannings designs software to ensure volunteer bird enthusiasts collect the right information for biologists to use in building this scientific knowledge-base. The younger Cannings, meanwhile, has now spotted 372 birds on his B.C. bird list; the last was the little blue heron. He will lend his celebrity to the efforts of the Nature Conservancy of Canada, the OkanaganSimilkameen Conservation Alliance, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and the Western Canada Wilderness Committee in their plight to secure the proposed Osoyoos/South Okanagan conservation park. The sagebrush and
grassland habitat the groups are trying to protect is a unique type of ecosystem not yet included in the Parks Canada inventory. Efforts to establish a federal park have been in the works since 2003, but face significant opposition from First Nations, ATV and off-road groups and ranchers. The area is part of a grassland corridor running through much of the B.C. Interior, is critical for many migratory grassland animals and includes 50 recorded endangered species. The little blue heron on the Westside, meanwhile, is neither endangered nor likely to disappear from this neck of the woods any time soon. Unfortunately, while science cannot explain why birds like this get off track, bird watchers do know it is unlikely the young creature will make it back to the environment where it belongs.

▼ FATAL ACCIDENT
Kelowna woman killed in Springfield collision Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
A young Kelowna woman was pronounced dead Monday afternoon, as a result of injuries sustained in what’s been described as a “horrific” car crash. The woman was a passenger in a Mazda that police believe cut in front of a Plymouth sedan during morning commuter traffic, at the intersection of Springfield and Quigley Roads. Drivers of both cars remain in hospital with non life-threatening injuries. “According to witnesses the crash occurred when a woman…was driving westbound on Springfield Road in her Plymouth sedan, on her way to work,” said Const. Steve Holmes. An eastbound Mazda sedan allegedly took a sudden left turn, into Quigley Road, in front of the Plymouth, driven by a 46-year-old woman. “It appeared that the Plymouth had no time to react and the two vehicles
collided, causing extensive damage to both,” said Holmes. Both the young man who was driving the Mazda, aged 28, and the passenger who is now deceased, were trapped and had to be extricated by emergency crews. Police are saying they won’t be releasing the name of the 26-year-old Kelowna woman who died, due to a request by the family. “Her family is having a hard time with their loss, under such tragic circumstances, and are not entertaining the idea of releasing their loved one’s name,” said Holmes. RCMP Central Okanagan Traffic Services is investigating the collision along with the RCMP traffic reconstructionist. Police are asking that anyone who witnessed this incident, or has information pertaining to it, please call the RCMP’s Central Okanagan Traffic Services at 250-980-5353.

Getting a taxi ‘a joke’ Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
A provincial mandate that cracks down on drinking drivers has had some highly publicized impacts on pubs and restaurants across B.C. With some are reporting profit losses in the area of 30 per cent, it’s caused business owners to think outside the box to create ways for their imbibing customers to drink responsibly, secure in the knowledge they’ll get home with their driving record intact. Unfortunately, says one Kelowna city councillor, government red tape is getting in the way of businesses that could solve the problem. Bars in a number of American cities that have similar drinking and driving laws, are easily able to have their own shuttle service, says Coun. Andre Blanleil. Most Kelowna bars and restaurants, however, can’t seem to get the same break due to prohibitive licensing requirements, and that’s taking a bite out of business. “It’s stifling the creative juices of the private sector by (stopping them) from creating different ways to get people home,” said Blanleil. The issue came to the fore during Monday’s meeting when Blanleil expressed frustration over the attentiveness of Passenger and Transportation Board representatives. For two years, he said, council has been asking for details about how they dole out taxi licenses to cities, because Kelowna appears to be short. “Getting a cab now is a joke,” he said. It’s a sentiment that’s been repeated many times in Kelowna, and the sound of dissent has become louder since new drinking and driving laws have come into effect. Complaints that bargoers are waiting for more than an hour for cabs that never arrive are regular, and without a late night bus service to speak of, it’s businesses that cater to nighttime crowds that are suffering. That’s where an opportunity should lie, said Blanleil, but it’s not the case. “Taxis are a big component,” he said. “But licensing is the bigger problem.”

Secondary suite policy draws criticism Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER
The adoption of a new policy regarding secondary suites is not seen as the solution by a group of Westside residents. West Kelowna Residents Association president Joe Lavigne said opposition to aspects of the new secondary suite policy has been incorrectly described as being against secondary suites altogeth-
er. “That’s sort of how it’s coming across.” One of the sticking points for the association is that the public hearing component around individual secondary suite applications has been removed. Lavigne says they see this as removing a homeowner’s ability and right to have a say in the process of approving a secondary suite in their neighborhood. Removal of this option
was intended to streamline the application process. Lavigne said he would agree with doing that if there were so many applications that the process is bogging down, but noted there have only been 17 secondary suite applications in one year. He added the District of West Kelowna devoted more time to discussing the secondary suite policy than dealing with the suite applications that

from the beginning. “Then it’s designed that way,” he said. “People would buy in the area knowing that.” Lavigne said residents now live in an area where secondary suites are allowed in every home. He acknowledged the new policy was brought on under a need for more affordable housing in the area. He added that despite the amnesty period, there is no rush of illegal suite owners trying to legalize their suites. He pointed out the only way to really address affordable housing in the area is to encourage more development, creating an oversupply in the market. “If you have an oversupply, you will bring down prices.” Lavigne added legal secondary suites are bound to be more expensive than their illegal counterparts. The WKRA stance is that the secondary suite policy has done nothing to cure the problems that were there before, and removes the right of nearby homeowners to weigh in on the issue.

were in hand. Lavigne said there are more than 1,000 illegal secondary suites on the Westside, put in without proper zoning, application or inspection. “A lot of these are actually deathtraps. They’re not safe to live in.” The new policy gives an 18-month amnesty period for property owners with illegal secondary suites to come forward and bring them up to standards. Lavigne said homeowners wanted the old rules to stay, so that an application for rezoning would have to be brought forward with every secondary suite. He pointed out if one neighbour on either side applied for secondary suites, that might not be so bad. “But if every other home except yours on your street applied for a secondary suite, you’d probably go up and say ‘We have enough.’” Lavigne noted association residents bought into single family residential areas. He pointed out new developments should be brought forward with affordable housing in mind

Don’t ignore water pollution Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER
There’s a lot we should be doing to reduce the many ways we pollute both underground aquifers and surface water in B.C., according to Hans Schreier, a professor at UBC’s Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability. He was speaking at the Building Sustainable Communities conference at the Delta Grand in Kelowna Tuesday on Water Pollution in B.C.: an Overview. From the natural pollution caused when a landslide uncovers arsenic or asbestos that gets into water supplies downstream, to pharmaceuticals and sediments caused by human land uses, there are many sources of pollution, he told delegates. While every other country has regulations regarding water quality, Canada only has guidelines, he noted. Agriculture and urbanization are two of the most controversial causes of pollution of our water, he said. However, forestry and mining also affect water quality. Although we regulate each of those uses, they never talk to each other, even though most watersheds are multi-use, he said. As well as individual contaminants, there are the impacts of combinations of them, which could be production of an entirely new contaminant. Regarding groundwater, Schreier warned that it can be contaminated by any land use, but unconfined aquifers are much more vulnerable than confined ones, which have an impervious layer to protect them. Coring will help to determine the character of

the sub-strate, so decisions can be made about what land uses are safe for that aquifer within its recharge zone. Sand and gravel soils allow faster infiltration to an aquifer than clay, for instance. Aquifer vulnerability maps should be created to show where an aquifer is sensitive to what kinds of land uses. It’s particularly important to protect the capture zone of an aquifer from contamination from septic systems and oil wells, for instance, he said. Nitrates are a good indicator of the health of an aquifer. The most contaminants affect shallow wells, particularly in agricultural areas. However, nitrates will also indicate the health of water in a bottle, he noted, but federal food (not water) regulations apply to bottled water, so you will learn by reading the label that there is no fat in bottled water— not how much nitrate is in it. The fact is, some large and well-known bottled water companies provide water containing nitrates, he said, which is an indication that there is some

HANS SCHREIER spoke about the need to reduce
the level of pollution for both underground and surface water in B.C. at the Building Sustainable Communities conference in Kelowna on Tuesday. impact on the supply that is contaminating it. Another problem, particularly in farming areas, is the surplus nutrients applied to the land, on hobby farms, commercial farms and from septic systems. Animals generate more nitrates than people. “We can figure out where we’re generating surplus nitrates and correct that,” he pointed out. That would help protect water quality both in aquifers and in surface water. In some areas, we’re producing masses of surplus nitrates, he warned. As well, there are more and more antibiotics being fed to farm animals and these are leaching into water supplies, he warned. We need to start looking at which aquifers are
confined and which are unconfined, so we can put more protections in place around those that are unconfined, he said. We need to control pollutants at the source, seal well heads, control livestock inputs to water, control the density of septic systems and minimize industrial activities to protect groundwater sources. For surface water, protection of wetlands is a huge value, but maintaining biodiversity and reducing pollution, adding buffer strips and wetlands, controlling stocking density, controlling erosion and detaining and providing opportunities for storm water to infiltrate instead of running off are all important, he said. The conference continues this week through Thursday.

More than a year after gunshots echoed through Mill Bridge Park heralding Chris Hetu’s last moments, Kelowna Mounties have yet to make an arrest. Now, by way of a Crime Stoppers video, they’re appealing to the public in hopes evidence germane to the case will come to light. “Investigators strongly believe that there are individuals in Kelowna and Prince George (who) have information about this murder,” said Const. Steve Holmes, during a Monday morning press conference where the one-minute re-enactment of the Oct. 27, 2009 murder was unveiled.

park at around 1 a.m. on a BMX bike, for reasons unknown. It was between 1:10 and 1:15 a.m. that area residents reported hearing three to five shots fired. Hetu, 20, dead as a result of an unknown number of gunshot wounds, was removed from the park in the hours that followed. Holmes didn’t offer much information about what evidence police have accrued over the last year, although he said a “handgun” was recovered at the scene. He also noted that Hetu had “dealings” with Prince George Mounties prior to moving to Kelowna, but declined to address what those were. It is known that Hetu served time as both an adult and a minor, earning the nickname Juvie. However, Holmes said that any speculation about his character, and how it relates to his murder won’t be addressed until the police have evidence.

An angry teenager with an apparent flair for the dramatic learned an important lesson last week—don’t play with guns, real or not. At around 8:30 a.m. Nov. 12, a man driving a white Dodge pickup northward on Springfield Road was cut off by a teenager driving an Oldsmobile sedan headed in the same direction. “At Springfield and Rutland Roads, the youth who was driving the sedan, pointed a handgun at the driver of the Dodge,” said Const. Steve Holmes. Seemingly unfazed by the brazen act of aggression, the victim recorded the description and licence plate of the vehicle and surmised that the driver may be of high school age. He then headed off to Rutland Senior Secondary, contacted the principal and together they searched a vehicle that matched the description he had recorded earlier. “(They) discovered an airsoft gun that had been painted to look like a real handgun,” said Holmes. The student was suspended but could also face criminal charges such as possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Winter snowfall predicted to start this week for Okanagan Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
Okanaganites have benefitted from a mild winter so far, but by the time the Capital News lands on doorsteps across the city, a blanket of snow should already have fallen. “We are going to see a drastic change in the weather pattern, and it’s going to start tonight,” said Lisa Coldwells, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, Tuesday afternoon. A vigorous low-pressure system is moving in from the coast and it’s going to combine with cold Arctic air that’s seeping south, from the Yukon. When the two converge over central B.C., they’ll produce the valley’s first dump of snow. “For Kelowna it will start as rain, with snow on ski hills and upper levels,” she said. “But by (Wednesday) morning it will look like snow.” It should look like about two centimetres of snow, but Coldwells doesn’t believe it will stick around for too long, as temperatures are supposed to go as high as 5 C. By the end of the week, however, winter will make it clear that it’s here for the duration. The mating of two weather systems will have ended, leaving Okanaganites with a dusting of snow and the grey cloud-cover that defines the region’s winter experience. And, while the season has come in like a lamb, it’s expected to be a particularly unpleasant experience this time around. La Nina is making an appearance and Coldwells said that means more snow should remain in the valley bottom throughout the season. If nothing else, that should give drivers the impetus to get their snow treads on, if they haven’t already. From the perspective of Ted Richards, manager of the Kal Tire store at the corner of Dilworth and
Leckie, drivers have been very responsible this year. “Each morning when we have opened, for the last two weeks, there have been people lining up in front of the store,” said Richards. “This time of year people are travelling in the mountains and it’s regulated now that you have to have winter tires in our mountains, so there’s pressure on the people who travel.” Luckily, this winter, there’s plenty of supply to go around. “We have a huge supply of winter tires,” said Richards. He explained that the year Quebec had winter radials mandated, Western Canadians were left in the lurch because Michelin sent their entire supply east. And, he stressed, snow
tires are the best way to deal with the conditions that are bound to arrive. “About 80 per cent of the accidents in winter happen on ice,” he said. “Luckily, winter tires have gotten a lot better over the last 15 years.” With the new technology for tires, rubber compounds are softer—stick to ice better. It’s safer, but also has created a bit more of a cost to the consumer. Now it’s mandated that all four tires have to be winter radials, instead of just the front (driving wheels) two, which was commonplace in years past. “It started when Bridgestone came out with Blizzak tires in ’95,” said Richards. “We were putting two tires on the front, and people were coming in and
Turns out, that the front tires had so much traction that it was caus-
ing the back tires to slip out, meaning drivers were hooped if they headed into
a corner with some tire disparity. “So now we sell rear tires, too,” he said.

Debate Afghan issue in Parliament
n recent weeks, the federal government headed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper has suggested that Canada may have a role to play in Afghanistan until 2014, despite a parliamentary resolution which stated that Canada would end its combat role in the hopelessly wartorn country by the end of 2011. In addition, Harper has stated that there is no need for a vote in the House of Commons on any
extension of Canada’s activity in Afghanistan. The government is wrong to make any such statement. Canada has invested a lot in Afghanistan, through financial aid and in particular, through our military mission there, which has been underway for close to nine years. This, by the way, is the longest war commitment by Canada in its history —three years longer than our commitment during
the Second World War. Our biggest and most emotional investment has resulted from the tragic loss of Canadian lives there. They gave their lives for our country, and that is no exaggeration. Because of the enormous amount of money, military energy and emotional energy invested in this mission, it deserves a full and honest discussion in Parliament. Yes, it is true that the Bloc
Quebecois will be naysayers, and it is highly unlikely that the NDP will support any Afghan mission extension. However, both the Liberals and Conservatives suggest there are good reasons to be involved in aid and training until 2014, and all perspectives on this deserve to be heard in the House of Commons. If the Afghanistan mission is to be extended, it deserves proper discussion—in Parliament.

Reason can still prevail before HST about-face takes place
.C.’s first-ever citizen initiative ballot question couldn’t be much simpler. Next Sept. 24, those voters who take the time to head down to the polling booth will check Yes or No to the following: “Are you in favour of extinguishing the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) and reinstating the PST (Provincial Sales Tax) in conjunction with the GST (Goods and Services Tax)?” When Premier Gor-
Tom Fletcher don Campbell announced a few weeks ago that the government would abide by a simple majority vote, I said it would be “mission impossible” for the HST to survive. Its chances may now
have improved from “none” to “slim.” The question at least frames the only practical choice. Keep the HST or go back to sales tax status quo, without the refund that petitioner Bill Vander Zalm conjured up to attract signatures. I asked Finance Minister Colin Hansen about the question, the fate of the proposed refund and the impact of the 15 per cent personal income tax cut imposed by the outgoing premier.
Hansen agreed that it’s important to have a simple question, although the implications for the economy go far beyond the tax at the bottom of your sales slip. As for the supposed refund, Vander Zalm’s proposed “HST Extinguishment Act” calls for the old PST to be restored retroactive to last July, with any extra tax collected under the new system repaid on an averaged basis. “But in fact what hap-
pens this year is that we would collect slightly less under the HST system than we would have collected had the PST system continued in place,” Hansen said. “So there would not be any extra revenues to the province, and therefore the whole thing is moot.” Making the PST retroactive would also mean somehow collecting back taxes on 15 months worth of expenditures that are reduced under HST, such as disposable dia-
pers, hotel rooms and business phone services. This would be administratively as well as politically impossible. In short, Vander Zalm’s proposal can’t be done, and the refund he dangled doesn’t exist. It’s too bad more people didn’t understand this before they signed the petition. So if you vote Yes next fall, you will still pay the federal GST, and you will get back some form of the old PST, once the
provincial government rehires hundreds of tax staff transferred to the federal government. A finance ministry briefing memo, released last week, points out that if B.C. flip-flops and See Fletcher A11

▼ PROVINCIAL POLITICS
Wanting MLAs to represent constituents To the editor: Re: MLAs Ready To Defend Riding Turf, Nov. 12 Capital News. Steve Thomson may feel that he has been doing a commendable job for his constituents in returning our tax dollars to the region while giving himself plenty of photo ops to boot. What he refuses to acknowledge is that he, and all but one of his fellow Liberal MLAs, have failed to represent the concerns of their constituents regarding the HST. Instead he has chosen to represent the wishes of a dictatorial premier and the millions of dollars contributed to the Liberal party
by large corporations. Interestingly, the Oath of Office he subscribed to only makes reference to being faithful to and bearing true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which I guess allows him to leave taxpayers off his list and the right to claim he has “tried to do his job with integrity.” There is no requirement to justify the reason for recall in the legislation, but it does, fortunately, allow citizens a voice when they are dissatisfied with the representation they receive. The Premier self-recalled after finally
hearing those voices. Mr. Thompson has the opportunity to listen to them for the next couple of months, despite his time being consumed, even in the absence of a fall sitting of the legislature, by “continuing the work he was elected to do, both at the local and provincial level.” Suggestion for Mr. Thomson: Start doing the work you were elected to do and put “addressing the issues directly with your constituents” at the top of the pile. Neil Martin, Kelowna,
Better ways to spend money than recall campaign To the editor: In his homily at the West Kelowna Remembrance Day service, the presenter noted how veterans (not pastors, lawyers, reporters, lobbyists or politicians) have protected our rights to religious thought, due legal process, freedom of the press, the right to free assembly and the right to vote by the many sacrifices they’ve made. When we compromise these values, it betrays the memory of those who’ve served. So, I’m a little perplexed when “recallers” receive front page coverage (Thomson Targeted by MLA Recallers, Capital News Nov. 10) as they attempt to use the system for their own political ends. Thomson, like other MLAs, was legitimately elected in May 2009. Where were these voices then? Why should we now spend time, effort and tax dollars on arbitrary measures and their political agenda? The dates for an HST referendum and the next general election
have been set. When will the Justin Neufelds, Dan Thorburns and Chris Delaneys be satisfied? Minister Thomson continues to serve his constituency with honor and integrity. His tenure has been free of scandal or allegations of impropriety and he should be free to complete his term. Kelowna-Mission voters should be pleased that such a civic-minded individual agrees to public service (thanks Thomson family—my kids love swimming at H2O). And there’s the rub. The problem with initiating a recall on a community-minded candidate like Steve Thomson, is it discourages other quality, civicminded individuals from participating in politics. We end up with a Bill Vander Zalm (and his flock of sheep) using the premier’s office for personal gain and accepting cash in a brown paper bag for a deal on his personal property (one method of avoiding the HST or even the property transfer tax he imposed).
The other problem occurs on Remembrance Day as we remember sacrifices made by our veterans. If a fringe group of malcontents can hijack public discourse and the democratic process for their own ends, does that not dishonor the memory of our veterans? Does that not betray our commitment to maintain the integrity of our institutions for which our veterans fought? Here’s a suggestion for the recallers. Instead of attacking Mr. Thomson or other elected MLAs, consider the fates of the 152 Canadian service men and women who won’t be coming home from Afghanistan. That’s 152 wives, girlfriends, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers who will never see their loved ones again. Take up their cause. Plead the case for the widow and the orphan. And, if that proves too onerous, stop by your local Legion, buy a veteran a beer and just say, thanks. We’ll all be better served. Gordon Wiebe, West Kelowna
Snagging HOV abusers a waist of RCMP resources To the editor: Should I laugh, or cry for the person that might be out $110? In a day-long traffic blitz, one person was caught and ticketed for ‘misusing’ the HOV lane. Could it be that that person had an errand
list and changed his/her mind about what to do first? And, being a responsible motorist stayed in the ‘shopping lane’, since split-second lane hopping is dangerous. It’s doubtful that a judge could be found who would charge and convict (because of
three demerit points) a person simply for changing their mind and acting in a responsible manner. Furthermore, why is the RCMP forced to waste their valuable time on such drivel? Gunther Ostermann, Kelowna
Help Gospel Mission expand dental clinic To the editor: Since you published the article regarding the Gospel Mission’s dental clinic’s attempt to obtain a $100,000 grant from Pep-

posal stood at #50; now it is #16. We need to get more people voting! This is a worthwhile and easy cause for the community of Kelowna to
Governing by fait accomplis Fletcher from A10 brings back the PST, businesses might leave the province. Some firms that signed contracts based on HST input tax credits may sue the government to recover their losses. B.C.’s reputation as a stable place to invest will be damaged. Then there is the personal income tax cut which, like the HST, is intended to attract investment and jobs. Hansen has already notified the
capital news A11
Canada Revenue Agency of the 15 per cent reduction, so the income tax deducted from your paycheque will be reduced starting Jan. 1. That tax cut will put about $600 million a year into the B.C. consumer economy, a stimulus that will show up in government revenues. But the ministry forecasts it will be several years before growth fills the revenue hole. Hansen insisted that even with the income
tax cut, the B.C. government can still get out of deficit by 2013 and have some “flexibility” in this spring’s budget. All this, of course, rests on the assumption of an economy growing and recovering from recession. Indulging in the latest wacky B.C. political protest would almost certainly weaken that recovery.

Stolen daycare bus hits cop car Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER
Staff at a Kelowna daycare facility are “in a bit of a juggle” after the bus used to transport children to and from school was stolen and then allegedly driven into a police cruiser by a group of men apparently attempting to evade capture. Daphne Bowden, general manager of Sutherland Avenue-based Clubhouse Childcare Centre, was closing up the facility around 5:45 p.m. on Monday when she discovered that their 2005 Ford limo bus was missing from the parking lot. It had been taken sometime in the previous half hour, she said, and she had the only two set of keys for the vehicle. Later that evening, after reporting the bus stolen, Bowden was in the
Mission Park Shopping area when she spotted the bus “skewed” into a parking spot off Richter Street. “There was still a person in the driver’s seat,” she said. Bowden called police on speaker phone to report her discovery, when suddenly the bus started to leave the lot. She said she followed the bus at a distance—saying the driver of the stolen vehicle was travelling under the speed limit and appeared to have difficulty driving the machine— until she spotted police in Rutland and pulled over. “They (police) stayed in contact with me the whole way,” she said. Police closed in on the bus after it turned onto a dead end street near Leathead Road, and that’s where they allege the driver of the bus accelerated and hit a police vehicle as
it left the area. “I did see the three vehicles attempt to curtail him,” said Bowden. “The police officer was backing up to get out of the way” when his vehicle was hit. Police say the bus was seen driving into oncoming traffic and allegedly tried to ram another police cruiser as the driver continued his efforts to flee. The vehicle was found, abandoned, a short time later on Adams Court near University Way, and a police dog tracked down three men who were hiding in some trees near University Way. Justin Dwayne Collins, 35, Matthew Ian Mahood, 29, and Dayton Lloyd McAlpine, 23, have now been charged with possession of stolen property. Results of their court appearances Tuesday afternoon weren’t known at
press deadline. Meanwhile, Bowden said her reaction to the events Monday night was one of “disbelief,” as she wondered why someone would take such a distinctive vehicle. “This is a giant white 35-foot fancy bus,” she said. She said police were still processing the bus on Tuesday, and they will have to wait for repairs to be completed—including fixing a punched ignition—before they get the vehicle back. The stolen bus was used every day to transport daycare children to and from school and while they wait for its return, they are forced to send more than one vehicle to school pickups and rearrange schedules as they fill the void. “We’re in a bit of a juggle,” said Bowden.
▼ DRUG BUST
Pot odour gives away grow op location An RCMP officer used her senses to bust a West Kelowna grow operation. On Sunday afternoon, an officer was in the area of Ross and Cameron Roads when she detected a “very strong odour of vegetative marijuana,” said Const. Steve Holmes.
So, she called in a second officer to help her locate the source of the smell, which they tracked to a home on Cameron Road. Officers were eventually able to acquire a drug warrant for the home and found 300 marijuana plants and an estimated 150 pounds of dried
bud, as well as an illegal Hydro electrical bypass. Officers also encountered two pit bulls in the home, “who, fortunately, were friendly,” said Holmes. The investigation into the person or persons responsible for the grow operation is ongoing, police say.

Arson investigators are looking to speak with the author of a graffiti “tag” that has been located near several recently set fires in Rutland, police said Tuesday. “The initials ‘GC’ were located on a telephone pole near where a spate of arsons occurred on October 22 and it was also found on the wood fence that surrounded the property where the semi tractor was burned on November 5,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “Though police cannot confirm that the tags
are linked to the fires… they consider the author of the tags to be a ‘person or subject of interest’ and would like to speak with him/her.” In the early morning hours of Nov. 5, fire crews were called about flames in a tractor trailer parked at a home in the 200-block of Dougall Road North, and investigators say the fire started inside the cab. And, two weeks earlier, on Oct. 22, fire crews were kept hopping with five set fires during a short time in the same area. The first fire was set in a boat on Gray Road, followed by three fires on Dougall Road damaging a

NEWS flesh into urine. Up until the 11th century AD “water tasters,” who drank the urine of those suspected of having diabetes, confirmed the diagnosis by the sweet taste of the urine. The Latin word for
honey (referring to its sweetness) is ‘mellitus,’ which was added to the term diabetes as a result. Over the centuries since, we now know much more about how diabetes affects us and how to diagnose it.
There are three main types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers or young adults.
In this form of diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin because the body’s immune system has attacked and destroyed them. Current medical treatment for type 1 diabetes includes taking in-
sulin shots or using an insulin pump, lifestyle choices, or being physically active. Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin-
John Sherman dependent diabetes, is the most common form of diabetes. People can develop type 2 diabetes at any age—even during childhood. This form of diabetes usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which fat, muscle, and liver cells do not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin. In time, however, it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals. Being overweight and inactive increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes can happen during the late stages of pregnancy. This form of diabetes usually goes away after the baby is born. The hormones of pregnancy or a shortage of insulin causes gestational diabetes. Complications from diabetes include heart and blood vessel disease, blindness, kidney failure, foot ulcers and erectile dysfunction to name a few. Homeopathy can play a role in the ongoing treatment of diabetes. Syzygium jambolanum is a homeopathic remedy that is not very well known, but it’s great as an adjunct treatment. Recently, while looking through some of the old texts of homeopathy, I came across some information on this particular remedy, a quote from William Boericke’s (1849-1937) Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica. In this 1906 text, he writes about Syzygium jambolanum: “a most useful remedy in diabetes mellitus. No other remedy causes in so marked degree the diminution and disappearance of sugar in the urine.” He wrote further how this remedy is indicated in diabetes when there is great thirsts, weakness, very large amounts of urine, and the specific gravity is high.

It helps with old ulcers of skin as well as diabetic ulceration. Homeopathy has aided in the treatment of diabetes for well over a century. This was long before Frederick Banting’s (1891-1941) discovery of insulin in 1921. Interestingly enough, in 1906, William Boericke wrote about another homeopathic remedy that was derived from insulin, named insulinum. He wrote then that “besides the use of insulin in the treatment of diabetes, restoring the lost ability to oxidize carbohydrate and again storing glycogen in the liver, some use of it homeopathically has been made by Dr. Wm. F. Baker, showing its applicability in acne, carbuncles, erythema with itching eczema. “In the gouty, transitory glycosuria when skin manifestations are persistent, give three times daily after eating. Given a persistent case of skin irritation, boils or varicose ulceration with polyuria, it is indicated.” Considering these words were written at least 15 years before Banting discovered insu-
lin, I would say that homeopathy was well ahead of its time and still is in the treatment of many chronic conditions.

McCall Canadian coach of the year Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
It doesn’t erase the disappointment of his team’s defeat in the B.C. Football Conference championship game. Still, being named the Canadian Junior Football League’s coach of the year confirms that not all was lost in 2010 for head coach Peter McCall and the Okanagan Sun. “The year didn’t end well for us and it’s taken some time to get over it… but I’d say it’s definitely a nice consolation to get recognized with this award,” said McCall, who took over as Sun head coach in 2009. “This is great for our team to be recognized, and the coaching staff deserves a big share of this. To get coach of the year is a symbol for our organization, it shows we’re improving and we’re going in the right direction.” McCall was to have accepted the award in per-
son at the CJFL’s awards banquet last weekend in Saskatoon, but a blanket of dense fog prevented McCall’s plane from landing and he was forced to return to Kelowna without attending the ceremony. Sun player Steven Doege, a finalist for the defensive player of the year, was also on the flight. “Because we weren’t playing in the final, I wasn’t all that excited to go to Saskatoon anyway,” McCall said with a laugh. The national award went to McCall based largely on his club’s 9-1 regular season showing and first-place finish in the BCFC. It was a dramatic improvement over the team’s 6-4 mark a year earlier as Okanagan placed fourth and exited the playoffs in the first round. This year, it was only a gut-wrenching 16-14 loss to the Vancouver Island Raiders in the BCFC final last month at the Apple
Bowl that stood between the Sun and goal-fulfilled 2010 season. “Every coach has to face those losses and you hope you grow from it,” he said. “I think as a team we’re getting better and better times are ahead.” McCall is no stranger to winning awards. While at Rutland Senior Secondary, he was named B.C.’s scholastic football coach of the year in 2007. But as any football coach will tell you, McCall said individual awards will forever take a back seat to winning championships. “They give you a ring for this award,” McCall said of the CJFL honour. “But I’d give that ring back and the finger that it goes on for a championship any day.”

Huska to guide WHL players against Russians Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER
Ryan Huska might not have a lot of time to reflect on where his coaching career has taken him in the years since being hired as the Kelowna Rockets head coach. But when he does, the fourth-year Rockets head coach has to be pretty excited about the path he is on. Huska will be behind the bench as head coach of Team WHL in two games against Team Rus-
sia this week as the annual Subway Super Series comes to B.C. for games in Kamloops (Wednesday) and Prince George (Thursday). “I’ve had a lot of great experiences since I decided to stick in hockey, from Memorial Cups to WHL championships,” said Huska, who was first hired as an assistant coach with the Rockets back in 2002. “Now to be getting international experience it’s more than I could have imagined. I’m very for-

tunate that I got involved with the Rockets because a lot of these opportunities are coming from working with a great organization.”
Huska, who is also an assistant coach for Team Canada’s World Junior team this year, is one of three members of the Ke-
lowna Rockets organization that will participate in the Super Series this week. Rockets’ captain Tyson Barrie will be an
assistant captain for Team WHL in the game in Prince George while athletic therapist Jeff Thorburn will work both of the games with Team WHL. The Super Series is used by Hockey Canada as a chance to scout players in advance of this year’s World Junior tournament. “I think that’s the main part,” said Barrie, who played in both Super Series games last year. “Obviously you want to beat the Russians and play a good team game but the
most important thing is you’re trying to catch the eye of the Team Canada guys and show them you deserve a chance to be on the World Junior team.” Heading into this week’s games the Super Series is tied at two wins apiece. Team Russia won both games against the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League while Team OHL defeated Russia twice. Huska says the series is more competitive than See Super Series A22

UBCO Heat sweep Rockies College of the Rockies offered little resistance to the defending national champs as the UBC Okanagan Heat stretched their record to a perfect 6-0 in BCCAA women’s volleyball. The Heat swept COTR in back-to-back matches over the weekend at the Kelowna campus gym. On Friday, Steve Manuel’s team rolled to a 3-0 win (25-15, 25-17, 2512). Alex Basso and BCCAA player of the week Kaylan Goldsborough led the UBCO attack, while setter Caitlyn Nyhus was named the Heat’s player of the match. On Saturday, more of the same as UBCO romped to another 3-0 victory (25-15, 25-17, 2512). Several big hits and strong blocks earned Emily Carroll was named player of the game honours as the Heat won by an average of 12 points per set.

The two-time B.C. and Canadian champs haven’t missed a beat through the first three weeks of the season—an encouraging sign for the coaching staff as the program prepares for the move to Canada West next season.
“We’re focusing on this year,” said Heat assistant Karl Enns, “but we know through our exhibition season what solid CIS teams look like. We know what we have to evolve to. We’re working on that, while still concen-
Following the women’s lead, the Heat men (5-1) were dominant in sweeping both matches from College of the Rockies. On Friday, the Heat won 25-19, 25-16, 25-19. Player of the game Mark Broome racked up a big kill count, with Preston Tucker spreading around the offense to the likes of Broome, Nate Speijer and Chris Howe. On Saturday, player of the game Greg Niemantsverdriet and Speijer paced UBCO to another 3-0 win (25-13, 25-9, 25-17). Now on a four-game winning streak, Heat head coach Greg Poitras said hard work in practice is paying off for his team. “We have to compete in practice,” said Poitras. “We’re not really worried about having any streaks, we just want to get better by the end of the year.” The Heat will head to Vancouver Island this weekend where they’ll battle Camosun Friday and the VIU Mariners Saturday in Nanaimo.
B.C. bronze for Owls The Kelowna Owls went in as the sixth-ranked team in B.C. They came out as the bronze medalists. KSS shutout Oak Bay 1-0 Friday in Victoria to claim third place at the B.C. high school girls AAA girls field hockey championship. Graduating forward Jonel Boileau scored the lone goal at the 16-minute mark of the second half. It was a triumphant end to a satisfying season for coach Arnar Bernhardsson and the Owls who had significant holes to fill after losing a number of key veterans from last year’s gold medalwinning team. “I look at this as being a very successful year,” he said. “We lost our whole midfield core from last season, and we had players step up and fill those big spots for us. Our whole defense was outstanding as well, their defensive play was second to none. “I’m extremely happy with how the girls played and I’m pleased with the bronze medal.” The defending provin-

cial champs posted a 5-1 record at the tournament, while outscoring their opponents 25-2. The only blemish on an otherwise stellar tourney was a 2-0 loss to West Vancouver in the semifinal Friday morning. “We came out flat and just couldn’t get anything going. I’m not sure why we played the way we did,” said Bernhardsson. Still, Bernhardsson gave his team full credit for its ability to regroup for the bronze medal game after a disappointing result in the semis. He said the Owls’ real
character shone through. “Playing for third is one of the most difficult things to do because both teams have come off emotional letdowns,” he said. “The hardest part is playing with the intensity you need to play in a bronze medal game, and the girls did that. It’s a true measure of what a rally good team’s all abovut. It was important to play well and finish as strong as they could. I’m proud of them.” The Owls will have the largest turnover of players in recent memory with 11 players graduating from the program. The KSS grads are: Breezy Beaudry, Ali Banwell, Kimiko Durrer, Didi Kahl, Sam Coyston, Meagan Price, Sarah Eppler, Tayler Sawchuk, Jonel Boileau, Suzanne de Lange and Lioba Junker. de Lange and Junker were exchange students from the Netherlands and Germany, respectively.

Kwantlen’s Samantha McPhail in BCCAA basketball action Saturday in Surrey
UBC Okanagan hardwood fans will get their first look at the Heat this weekend as both teams play their home openers. The Heat will host the Camosun Chargers in a BCCAA doubleheader at the Kelowna campus gym. The women’s games are set for 6 p.m. both Friday and Saturday, while the men take to the court at 8 p.m. Both Heat teams head into the weekend with 2-2 records after posting sweeps of their games over the weekend in Surrey. In men’s action Friday, Micah Cockrill scored 22 points and added eight rebounds as the Heat downed Kwantlen 78-65. Iain Con added 19
points and Dan Briscoe had 17, as the Heat broke open a tight game with a big 24-point third quarter. The Heat hit on 14 of 44 from three-point range and out-rebounded the Eagles 47-35 as UBCO experienced victory for the first time. “We moved the ball a lot better,” Iain Con said of his team, in comparison to last weekend’s effort against Capilano. “It was great to come out here and have a great shooting night.” The Heat completed the sweep Saturday with a 75-62 win. Cockrill and Briscoe netted 14 points apiece, while Simon Pelland had 10 points and nine rebounds. Head coach Semeniuk
tabbed better teamwork and strong ball movement as major factors in the weekend’s success. “I was really happy with our guard play this weekend,” said They worked well together and that helped our whole team play unselfishly,” he added. Semeniuk also sees next weekend as another challenge for his team as he remarked that, “There are no guarantees in this league.” In women’s action Friday, the Heat overcame a poor shooting effort early in the game to down Kwantlen 62-45. UBCO scored 29 points in the fourth quarter, including 10 from guard Ashley Briker. Briker finished with

SPORTS ▼ BCHL
Westside Warriors land new goalie One goalie out, another goalie in. The Westside Warriors dealt netminder Cam Gorchynski to the Victoria Grizzlies this week for future considerations. On the same day, the BCHL club acquired the rights of goaltender Cole Holowenko from the Merritt Centennials for futures. Holowenko just returned to the BCHL after a stint with the Chilliwack Bruins of the WHL. Gorchynski, born in Chilliwack, was in his second year with the Warriors and posted a 5-2-1 record, a 2.82 goals against average and a 89.7 save
percentage this year with Westside.
WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THE ADDITION OF COLE, AND WELCOME HIM TO THE WARRIORS. Darren Yopyk
“We wish to thank Cam for all that he has done for our organization and our community during his time here,” said

Warriors head coach and GM Darren Yopyk. “We are excited about the addition of Cole, and welcome him to the Warriors.” Cole played in 31 games last year for Merritt and was 9-14. The sixfoot-two, 190-pound native of Penticton will be in the lineup this Friday versus the Spruce Kings at Royal LePage Place. Meanwhile, with five wins in their last six games, the Warriors are finally gaining some traction in the BCHL’s Interior Division. Darren Yopyk’s club will look to build on its
recent success with two games this weekend. The Warriors will host Prince George Friday, then will travel to Salmon Arm on Saturday to battle the SilverBacks. Westside (12-9-1-1) continued its push up the standings with two roads wins last weekend. On Thursday, Tyler Brickler and Travis Blanleil each had a goal and an assist as the Warriors beat Prince George 6-3. On Friday in Quesnel, the Warriors edged the Millionaires 3-2. Tyler Krause’s goal at 12:07 of the opening period stood up as the game winner.
Alex Grieve added a goal and an assist. The Warriors are now to within four points of fourth-place Vernon in the Interior Division with two games in hand, and are just five back of third place Penticton. Meanwhile, forward Grayson Downing is back with the BCHL club after playing for Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge last week in Penticton. Downing had four points in five games as Team West settled for fourth place after a loss to Switzerland in the bronze medal game.

The Okanagan Rockets put a halt to their fivegame losing streak with a 6-3 win over the Vancouver North East Chiefs Sunday in B.C. Major Midget League action at the Capital News Centre. The Rockets’ leading scorer, Harlan Orr, paced the attack with two goals and two assists as Okanagan earned a split of the weekend set. Jedd Soleway and Luke Harrison each chipped in with a goal and an assist, while Mat Lambert had a pair of helpers. Alex Jewel and Alex Gillies added the singles to round out the scoring for the Rockets. Adam Todd had a solid effort in goal for the Rockets as he earned his fourth win of the season while stopping 26 of 29 Chiefs shots.
The win was a crucial one for the Rockets (7-90) as they move back to within two points of the Chiefs for the final playoff spot in the BCMML standings. On Saturday, a tough start for Todd who allowed four goals on six shots as the Chiefs rolled to a 6-2 win. Connor De Melo replaced Todd at the 15:30 minute mark and stopped 20 of 22 the rest of the way. Mitchell Cook scored his sixth of the season and Dallas Barker notched his third in the losing effort. The Rockets will be put to the test this weekend as they visit the Vancouver Northwest Giants for two games. The Giants are second in the league with a 11-23 record.

Owls host Centennial in high school gridiron playoffs The Kelowna Owls and Centennial Centaurs will meet in B.C. high school football playoff action Saturday at CNC. Kick off for the quarterfinal matchup is 4 p.m. The Owls, who won the Okanagan AAA Conference with a 4-0 record, are coming off a first round bye.
WEâ€™RE PRETTY CONFIDENT WE CAN SCORE POINTS, SO IF WE SHUT DOWN THEIR RUNNING GAME THEN I LIKE OUR CHANCES. Roy Anderson, KSS head coach
Centennial, the defending B.C. champs, routed Mt. Douglas 5328 in the opening round of the playoffs last weekend. KSS head coach Roy Anderson said his teamâ€™s success could depend largely on limiting Centennialâ€™s running game. â€œWeâ€™re pretty confident we can score points, so if we shut down their running game then I like our chances,â€? said Anderson. The Owls are led into playoff battle by Okanagan offensive player of the year Taylor Loffler. The 6-foot-4 quarterback scored 22 touchdowns and threw 19 TD passes this season.
HUSKIESâ€™ SEASON OVER
A banged up and short staffed Okanagan Mission Huskies team put on a brave face as their season ended with a 41-13 first-round AA playoff loss to Pitt Meadows Friday night at CNC. Quarterback and top offensive threat Devin Spence was among several Huskies who were far from 100 per cent fit due to injuries. â€œWe werenâ€™t to do as much as we would have liked because of all the injuries, we had to be pretty conservative,â€? said Huskies coach Jason Farnsworth. â€œThey guys played as hard as they could.â€? It was a challenging season for the OKM team as low roster numbers and injuries left the Huskies precariously close, on sev-

eral occasions, to not being able to field a team. Farnsworth has noth-

â€œWe had a lot of firstyear guys and to see where they progressed is

ing injured, the graduating guys didnâ€™t want to end their careers on the side-
lines. It was a roller coaster season and the guys played with a lot of heart.â€?

THE ANNUAL SPCA Angels For Animals Gala fundraiser, presented by Aquarius Mortgages, was a huge success this year. The event, held at the Manteo Resort last Saturday, raised $128,000, a significant increase over the $40,000 the event brought in last year in support of the Kelowna branch of the SPCA. With the provincial government contribution now less than one per cent of the SPCA’s provincial budget, events like the gala become more critical for maintaining SPCA services. Event organizers also saluted the contribution of local philanthropist Tom Budd, who matched a private donation of $7,500, and then matched the total donations from the gala guests.

Services vs. taxes: City confronted by budget challenges This is the first of four weekly columns provided by the City of Kelowna describing the municipal budget process. The purpose of these columns is to demystify the annual budget process and provide information about municipal taxation and spending practices. Tom Wilson CONTRIBUTOR
ore Kelowna residents agree with the statement: “My city is a great place to live,” than citizens of any other Canadi-
an city. Creating a great place to live doesn’t happen by accident. It takes vision, commitment and it takes thoughtful financial planning. In Kelowna, the bold goal of the annual budget process is to make this the best city of its size in North America. Results of an Ip-
sos-Reid national survey released in September found that 91 per cent of Kelowna residents believe this is a great place to live. The national average was 82 per cent and no metropolitan area from Halifax to Vancouver had higher than 88 per cent agreement with that statement. Kelowna’s weather, lake and surrounding mountains provide a nice setting, but good looks will only get you so far in a popularity contest. What lifts Kelowna above other cities is the
services it offers within the financial limits of the annual budget. The City of Kelowna’s annual budget aims for a balance between setting a reasonable tax rate and delivering services expected by residents and businesses. The current challenge is to deliver services to more areas as the city continues to grow. Adding to this challenge is the requirement for municipalities to be more financially involved in social services traditionally reserved for senior levels of government.
Despite the need to budget municipal funds for issues such as affordable housing and greenhouse gas reduction, the Ipsos-Reid poll indicates Kelowna does a good job of keeping up with residents’ demands. General satisfaction with municipal services in Kelowna was highlighted when Ipsos-Reid asked Canadians: “What is the most important local issue facing your community and the one issue you feel should receive the greatest attention from your local leaders?” In Winnipeg, Sas-
katoon and Edmonton, crime is the No. 1 local issue; in Calgary and Vancouver, municipal spending is the No. 1 local issue. In Kelowna, health care was identified as the top “local” issue, even though this is a provincial responsibility. Pragmatic, long-term financial planning allows the city to adjust to the moving targets of local demands. Setting money aside in reserve funds is one way the city is able to react to growing and changing needs. In 2010, the city’s annual budget was $413 million. Of that, $93 million came from property taxation—so less than 20 per cent of the overall budget. The rest came from user fees, development charges, reserve funds, self-funding facilities such as the airport, city utilities or landfill and partnerships with other levels of government. For an example of how the city stretches tax dollars to provide more services, look at the unusual amount of transportation construction projects carried out this summer. By using $5.5 million

in taxpayers’ dollars and funds from the city’s reserve accounts, Kelowna was able to commit to $55 million in transportation projects thanks to onetime stimulus and other funding from the federal and provincial governments. Meanwhile, on the taxation side for 2010, the city kept the property tax rate to just 1.6 per cent. With the exception of two years in the past decade, Kelowna’s annual property tax increase was two per cent or less. Kelowna consistently ranks among the lowest tax jurisdictions in B.C. The economy is making this another challenging budget year. In this series of columns, we will give residents information to help inform opinions about the value received for municipal tax dollars. Information about the budget is also now available at kelowna.ca/budget and will be updated as the process moves through deliberations by staff and city council, to a provisional budget in December and a final budget in May. Tom Wilson is the communications supervisor for the City of Kelowna.
Electrical short blamed for start of fire An electrical short is believed to have caused an early morning fire downtown on Monday. Just before 5:30 a.m., fire crews were called to the 1000-block of Lawrence Avenue after fire broke out in a garage. “The fire damage was contained for the most part to the garage, with some minor smoke spread through the living quarters of the duplex,” said assistant fire chief Lou Wilde. A resident from one side of the duplex was home at the time of the fire and evacuated prior to fire crews arriving. “Fire investigators have determined that an electrical short in a deep freeze was the cause of the fire,” said Wilde. The garage sustained about $20,000 damage and about $30,000 damage to its contents.

NEWS ▼ LAKE COUNTRY
New public art installation unveiled at the Winfield community garden site The Central Okanagan Community Gardens Society recently received a grant from the Central Okanagan Foundation for the purchase and installation of an art piece in one of their eight community gardens. The Sol Art piece was officially installed Monday morning at the Winfield Community Garden, 11187 Bottom Wood Lake Rd. The art, created by Vernon artist Ed Goodon, is a large metal carrot with a collection of gardening tools as the meat of the carrot. The Sol Art will become part of
the District of Lake Country’s Public Art Collection. The Kelowna District Society for Community Living assisted with the preparation of the site and will help with an addition to the art piece in the spring. The COCG will continue to apply to the Central Okanagan Foundation for grants to continue to add art pieces to the other community gardens. The COCG is a non-profit society that works with local governments to develop and maintain community gardens with a mission
to promote sustainable green spaces, community activities and fun educational opportunities. Lake Country’s community garden was created in 2005 on land provided by Paul and Judy Shoemaker. The Winfield garden offers 40 large plots of varying sizes at the cost of $15 per season (March to November) to help cover the cost of the garden’s upkeep. A shed, tools, water access and compost bins are supplied and now art will be incorporated into the garden design.

aylor Pro Training, located at 1017 Richter St., has moved from training Class 1, 3 and 4 professional drivers and excavator equipment operators to now training all levels of professional driving and heavy equipment operators.

CANADA POST employees will be collecting food donations for the Kelowna and West Kelowna food banks on Saturday.
Postees rally to support food banks The 11th Annual Canada Post Employee Food Drive is just around the corner and the our postees are appealing for the public’s help. On Saturday, Nov. 20, please place non-perishable food in bags by 10 a.m. outside your home for pick-up. Canada Post Employees and their families will be collecting and delivering your donations right to the Kelowna and West Kelowna food bank doors. Canada Post Employees have delivered 45,000 flyers to area residents detailing how you can help alleviate hunger in the Central Oka-
nagan. By leaving your bag -postcard attached, in a visible spot outside your home or in your apartment lobby you will be helping to feed hungry children and families. The annual Canada Post Employee Food Drive stocks the food banks’ shelves for winter. “We have set a goal to raise 100,000 lbs of food this year,” said Vonnie Lavers, executive director of the Kelowna Community Food Bank. “This event could not happen without the generous support of our partners and volunteers.”
The campaign is entirely sponsored—from printing and advertising right through to receiving donations at the warehouse. “Canada Post Employees volunteer their time one Saturday each year,” added Shirley Spencor, from Canada Post. Spencor encourages everyone who can afford it to put out a 10 to 20 lb. bag. “The Central Okanagan is blessed with so much prosperity; now more than ever the food bank needs your help, please don’t let our trucks leave your neighbourhood empty,” she said.

BUSINESS ▼ FAMILY STATUS DISCRIMINATION
Legal tug-of-war over accommodating family status
hile it would be foolish to ignore religion, gender and age as potential grounds for discrimination complaints, employers are presently struggling on another front. So-called “family status” discrimination complaints seem to be the growth area in today’s human rights world. British Columbia, along with other provincial and federal jurisdictions in Canada, prohibits employers from refusing to employ (or otherwise discriminating against) a person regarding employment because of the person’s “family status.” What the vague term, “family status,” means in the employment context is gradually becoming clearer. Generally speaking, the family status ground of discrimination has been used to prevent employers from altering a term or condition of employment due to the parental obligations of employees. The family status ground can also cover other family-related situations, but parenting obligations seem to be the most frequent instance. Examples of parenting obligations might include restrictions on working hours due to limits on daycare availability, an inability to relocate for employment due to family obligations, the need to be absent from work to attend to family medical situations, etc. It is apparent that the tension arises, often, out of family-related limitations on the employee’s availability for work. In years past, an employer’s reaction to an employee imposing
family-related restrictions on his or her availability might have been to send the employee packing. That is, of Robert Smithson course, because employers need employees to be available for work and feel that regular attendance is one of the inviolable obligations of employment. Employees, on the other hand, wish to protect their sphere of freedom and to reserve adequate time to attend to family-related obligations. The tension between the employer’s needs and the employee’s wishes is at the heart of the family status tug-of-war. There have been numerous recent decisions by human rights tribunals in which the family status ground has been applied. While there is some disagreement about the practical application of this ground (B.C.’s Court of Appeal, in a complaint against the Campbell River and North Island Transition Society, set the bar high in requiring evidence of a “serious interference with a substantial parental or other family duty”), it cannot be doubted that family status will become one of the most litigated grounds of discrimination in employment. B.C.’s Human Rights Tribunal recently dealt with a fairly typical set of circumstances. Cavanaugh, the single mother of a young child, filed a complaint against the Sea to Sky Hotel after her employment as banquet manager was terminated. In particular, she claimed that her employer refused to continue to employ her because of assumptions
it made about her ability to work. The Sea to Sky Hotel asserted that her employment was terminated solely due to her poor performance. The turning point in Cavanaugh’s employment seemed to have been when her employer learned that her weekend child care arrangements had changed. It seems the employer thought her responsibilities as a parent required her to find a less challenging job than that of banquet manager (which called for long and irregular hours of work). The tribunal came to the conclusion that the employer’s concern about Cavanaugh’s child care arrangements, particularly a change affecting her weekend availability, was one of the reasons contributing to the decision to terminate her employment. The tribunal also noted there was no evidence that Cavanaugh would be unable to meet the “long, irregular hours” requirement on an ongoing basis or that any attempts were made by the employer to discuss possible accommodations with her. As a result of her employer’s discrimination, Cavanaugh was awarded lost wages and damages for injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect totaling over $12,000. One doesn’t have to be the Amazing Kreskin to predict that there will be many more such awards as the family status tug-ofwar plays out. Robert Smithson is a labour and employment lawyer.

▼ KELOWNA Y DONATION
Telus fundraiser collects $588,900 Telus today announced its year-long television fundraising campaign has raised $588,900 for the YMCA-YWCA of the Central Okanagan. A year ago, Telus revealed a plan to donate $100 over the next year on behalf of every new customer signing up for Internet-based Optik TV and Telus Satellite TV in the community to the Kelowna Family Y expansion. “A year ago Telus offered the Y an incredible opportunity, to be able to reach out and invite Kelowna residents to be part of building our community through the Kelowna Family Y Expansion. Telus’ support to the gymnasium will allow Kelow-
na residents of all ages access the many physical and social benefits of recreation,” said Sharon Peterson, chief executive officer of the Central Okanagan YMCA-YWCA. “Telus’ gift has been transformational to our campaign, leading us to not only reach but exceed our campaign goal. We are so grateful to Telus, its team members and customers for this wonderful gift.” “The new Family Y gym will open up a world of fitness and community to Kelowna residents, regardless of their income or age,” added Steve Jenkins, Telus general manager for B.C.’s Southern Interior.

“For some youth from challenging backgrounds this facility will give them a place to play in a positive

Telus plans to invest $650 million in infrastructure in B.C. this year alone —including $6.5 million in Kelowna—to increase Internet speeds, introduce Optik TV to more communities and expand its wireless network.

vision little more than a daydream “Entrepreneurial vision without action is a daydream, but action without vision is a nightmare.”
Recently, my wife and I watched an older movie that had a line at the beginning and the end of the film that, as an entrepreneurially-minded soul, I shall never forget. The movie was Pretty Woman and the line was “Welcome to Hollywood, what’s your dream?” This scoring of the dream imagery took me to the aged proverb that I began my column with above, which is so true. I believe the single most significant element that sets a true entrepreneur apart from a business owner is their strength of vision. Such entrepreneurs have a strong or massive vision to create the momentum they need to actually develop and launch their business venture. As a result, the people that subsequently become part of the new venture team as the business grows do so as a result of the inspiration that the ori-
Joel Young ginating entrepreneur presents to them. So, vision is also an important element of leadership and let’s face it—one of the most fundamental parts of growing a venture is leading and retaining a team so that you may leverage your time, as without leadership skills it becomes quite difficult. I have also come to believe that with a strong vision, an entrepreneur can develop a venture in any sector to be successful. A way will always be found to get to the vision. In our highly competitive marketplace, there are examples of extremely profitable and successful ventures. Such examples answer the point that perhaps while these people don’t just have a unique
idea, they do hold a powerful vision. The Virgin Group and Dell Computers are two that come to mind quickly. Disney Online Studio, Vineyard Networks and Rack Force locally are others. To be daring, I will also go as far as to say that a strong, committed vision is more important in many ways than a business plan or market research. How many venture ideas have been scoffed at by others based on a plan or research? But because an entrepreneur believes in their own vision, that strength will invariably make positive things occur. As the quote goes that we’ve all heard so frequently in life: “If you don’t know where you are going, how are you going to get there?” But, it is not enough to merely have vision on its own. An entrepreneur has to understand the “why” that initiated their entrepreneurial journey in the first place, or else what is their purpose? Purpose, by the way,
is not to be confused with vision. The vision is the understanding of the direction in which the venture is travelling. The purpose is the why or what has transpired to make the entrepreneur passionate about their new venture creation. So the question could be asked which comes first, the entrepreneur’s vision or purpose? I believe strongly that if you couple them together and take consistent daily action to gain momentum, there is no limit to what can be accomplished in your life— or your entrepreneurial dream. An entrepreneurial venture is like a treadmill —once you are on it, you have to keep going forward; otherwise, you will end up in a heap. So welcome to the Okanagan, what’s your dream?

Kekuli Café and Aboriginal Foods and Catering, based out of Kelowna, will receive an award in the business category for 10 or more employees. “The businesses selected reflect the remarkable cross-section of enterprise and industry within British Columbia’s Aboriginal business sector,” Campbell said. The B.C. Aboriginal Business Awards were launched in October 2008 to honour and celebrate business excellence. Seven award recipients, one from each category, were selected this year. In addition, a further group of 11 Aboriginal businesses were noted for their outstanding achievement. An independent jury panel evaluated the sub-
missions based on the viability, sustainability and competitiveness of the business. “The jury had an extremely difficult task selecting the recipients from the many remarkable businesses nominated in this year’s submissions,” said Mitchell. “The BC Achievement Foundation extends its appreciation to the jury members, Tim Low, entrepreneur, past economic development officer and currently director of citizen services, Service Canada; Chief Michael LeBourdais, Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band and Ruth Williams, CEO, All Nations Trust Company, for their thoughtful deliberations.” The BC Aboriginal Business Awards are presented by the B.C.

BUSINESS ▼ BUSINESS FINANCE
Franchise option points to consider
franchise is a partnership arrangement, a legal and commercial relationship between two parties, the franchisor and the franchisee, with the view of making a profit. It is considered when a company has done all the legwork to get a profitable business going, developed a ‘presence’ in the marketplace, developed some standard policies and procedures that appear to be working and now wants to expand its sales base and reduce its competition. The franchisor has done all the work to develop the marketing plan, operating system and may have registered a trade mark or trade name. The franchisor will usually advertise that franchising opportunities are available. The franchisor will charge a fee to the franchisee for the privilege of using their name and system and perhaps a small customer base. This fee will usually include a ‘down payment’ and then an annual fee that may be based on a percentage of revenues which could be between two and 15 per cent. The franchisor needs to do their homework in developing the franchise agreement with a lawyer to make sure that all visible and non visible costs of distributing a franchise are covered. For example, you want to make sure that the franchisee is profitable so that the fees can be paid and this can be done by inserting a clause in the agreement whereby the franchisee needs to comply with certain procedures that have been proven to ensure profitability. Perhaps there are certain supplies and equipment that the franchisee is required to purchase on
an ongoing basis which also needs to be disclosed in the agreement. Perhaps there is a certain Gabriele ‘sidewalk’ presBanka ence that needs to be standardized and may require special ‘storefronting’ or renovations. The franchisor wants to make sure that the agreement will protect and discourage against encroachment. What encroachment means is when the franchisee is in direct competition with the franchisor which is totally opposite to what the franchise agreement was intended to accomplish. There are many franchising opportunities available in Canada. Several magazines, such as Franchise Canada, discuss and list these opportunities and the challenges faced by both a franchisor and a franchisee. Many fast food restaurants are franchises such as Tim Hortons, McDonald’s, Dairy Queen and Pizza Hut. Some other opportunities are in the areas of cleaning services, pet care, paper shredding, health care, auto leasing, bookkeeping, etc. The opportunities for franchise can be almost endless. From the viewpoint of an entrepreneur, it may be easier to get into a franchise than to start your own business especially if your business is similar to one already being provided by a large outlet. Perhaps you could introduce your product or service idea to the franchisor and have it more widely marketed than what you could do on your own. In most cases, the business processes are already in place, so that
BEHIND THE COUNTER
would be another area that you would not have to learn as it would be provided to you. The franchisor may be able to assist you with business expertise, advertising and training and may be able to provide access to special financing arrangements. Most financial institutions are more likely to lend money for a franchise because the business has been proven to be viable so they view another location as an expansion loan rather than a loan for a totally new unproven business concept. The downside might be that although you may be provided with some leads and perhaps a small customer base, it will be up to you to turn those leads into sales and to keep that customer base as well as drum up new business to keep your franchise afloat. The fees for the franchise may be pretty steep for the first year or two usually based on gross sales (before operating expenses) and will require a capital investment by the franchisee. The franchisor will require regular reports and may require some internal regular sales audits. Since the contract is at the discretion of the franchisor, they may terminate the contract with very little justification. If you are considering a franchise, make sure that you ask for financial statements for the last five years from the franchisor, talk to other franchisees about their experiences with the franchisor and how long it has taken them to get on their feet. Make sure that the financial statements are reviewed by a professional and that the franchise agreement is reviewed by a lawyer. Your relationship with the fran-

â€˜On fireâ€™ Aussie band will warm up Kelowna next weekend Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER
To call them a dynamic duo would be a bit of an understatement, according to the next Australian band to tour through Kelowna in a little over a weekâ€™s time. From vocalist Dale Buchanâ€™s description of his band Firetree, he and partner Josephine Cubis will leave their mark during their first North American tour with pronouncements like: â€œOn Fire!â€? plastered over reviews. â€œWe like to dig in and rock out and put on a show,â€? Buchan declares in a telephone interview from Vancouver. Yet itâ€™s a bit of a stretch to think of this self-described â€œmuscularâ€? band producing a high-energy set after listening to
their sweet melodies on MySpace and a minute later heâ€™s willing to give that The Space Between, their debut album, doesnâ€™t necessarily reflect their live performance-style in its EP format. Packed with ballads and love songs, Firetreeâ€™s recorded work sounds as though the Buchan/Cubis duet is all about the mellow yellow tones of the stereotypical Aussie surf lifestyle with a little downwith-government angst thrown in to keep things interesting. The pair have been playing together since Buchan saw Cubis singing at a restaurant in Queensland two years ago and she swept him off the beach like a rogue wave steals a tourist. It is perhaps fitting, as such, that this sun-kissed
crew is currently singing the praises of Said The Whale, theyâ€™re favourite find among our Canadian indie bands at the moment. They picked up on their music off the Peak Performance Project website. Their first shared stage with a Canadian crew was with Vancouverâ€™s The Reckoners, who are described by the Vancouver Sunâ€™s Francois Marchand as â€œboth â€˜indieâ€™ and modern yet undeniably â€˜retro.â€™â€? Theyâ€™re also undeniably the most similar act to Firetree this side of the Rockies with Christina Simpson, in her near identical blond-streaked locks, staring over at partner Ricardo Khayatte in their promo shots with a look that could have been ripped from Cubisâ€™s own
pose catalogue. Whether the Vancouver show actually produced the ultimate romantic musical double date or not is anyone in Kelownaâ€™s guess, but when you listen to Firetreeâ€™s itinerary for their tourâ€”which includes shredding the season opener on the hills at Whistler and braving the Coquihallaâ€™s snowy crests to play here and Kamloopsâ€”one has to figure there just might be something to Buchanâ€™s contention that the pair pack a hidden punch. To find out if Firetree has really got the fire in their bellies they describe, local audiences will not have to wait long. Normally the band tours the Australian Coast, as they are based largely out of Byron Bay in New South Wales, but will be
DALE BUCHAN and Josephine Cubis hope to light a fire under Kelownaâ€™s indie music fans when they roll into town next week. CONTRIBUTED

â–ź GET OUT SEE IT LIVE
At-home sound studio keeps cost of recording down Pyper Geddes CONTRIBUTOR
Gone are the days of having to fork out thousands of dollars just for musicians to get into a studio for a day. Sure, theyâ€™re still around for those who can afford it, but a new trend has emerged. Musicians and sound engineers alike are starting up studios in their own homes and offering their services at a more affordable price. Aaron Sinclair is one of these sound engineers. He started up Angelside
Music in Kelowna as a freelance audio company based out of his home. Although Aaron is mainly focused on producing, mixing, and recording, there are also many other aspects of sound engineering that he is interested in. Angelside Music can accommodate smaller, more acoustic projects out of his home but he also works with The Groove Studio in Vernon to ac-
commodate larger bands. I sat down with him this week to get some more info on Angelside Music and to find out what inspired him to start up his own company. Q: What inspired you to start up Angelside Music? AS: Angelside Music has been somewhere in the back of my brain for a really long time. Even before I really knew anything about recording, producing or the music industry I remember thinking, someday Iâ€™d like to have a recording studio
and Iâ€™d call it Angelside Music. My inspiration is music itself. All music. I have a desire to create and take part in creating all kinds of music ranging from indie to metal, pop to classical. If it was practical to play full time in none or 10 different bands I might do that. But, producing allows you to be part of the process for a wider range of music and to work with more people than playing in a bunch of bands would ever allow. Q: You offer a variety of services through Angelsideâ€”can you tell me
a bit about each and why you chose to do a bit of everything instead of just narrowing in on just one service? AS: There are a few good reasons for that. One is that it is necessary for a young freelancer to be able to adapt and be flexible in order to survive. The other is that I really love it, especially audio for pictures. Itâ€™s
amazing how much audio affects the movie viewer without them even realizing it. Music may be my biggest love affair, but I would not be complete without film. Although there are a variety of services they basically fall into three categories: music, audio for pictures and radio See Geddes B8

BRAD PAISLEY: HITS ALIVE (ARISTA)
The CD title Hits Alive is a bit misleading where it seems as if Paisley has released a live recording of his biggest hits. But this is a twodisc set with recordings taken from past albums with smash hits such as Mud On The Tires, Alcohol, Ticks, We Danced, Online and I’m Still A Guy among the 14 studio songs. The second disc features 11 live recordings from his recent 2010 tours and there are several repeats for fans who want a memento of the live gigs. The live recordings also give plenty of room for Paisley to stretch out on his guitar where he is considered one of the best six-stringers in all of country, even better than most of the hot shot session pickers that Nashville can boast. Paisley released an album a couple of years ago titled Play: The Guitar Album, where he proved his chops and Hits Alive confirms his status as one of the best axe wielders in country. A solid retrospective on a career that has lots of mileage yet to go. B

Bruce BLACK DUB: (JIVE/SONY) This is a one-off side Mitchell BARBRA STREISAND: ULTIMATE COLLECTION (COLUMBIA)
This album came out a few years ago and has been re-released for the upcoming Yuletide. It may seem a bit of a cash grab but this album has been out of print for a while and this generous 18-track anthology is loaded with past hits that makes for a tremendous career retrospective (Streisand had her first hit before The Beatles, if you are looking for longevity). There are tremendous hits here from Evergreen (Love Theme From A Star Is Born), The Way We Were, You Don’t Send Me Flowers (duet with Neil Diamond), Send In The Clowns, Smile, In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning and People—that has become a piano bar cliché.

project of famed producer Daniel Lanois after his most recent triumph working with Neil Young on Le Noise that got terrific reviews. Lanois has worked with the diverse likes of U2, Bob Dylan, Ian Tyson, Peter Gabriel, Eno but as a member of Black Dub none of these influences seem to come to the forefront. Black Dub, to my ears doesn’t even sound like much of a dub album—in early reggae days producers used to take the basic bed tracks without vocals of recent hits and add studio FXs over the tracks to create an alternate, often instrumental version—or a dub mix. But on the eponymous Black Dub the 59-yearold Lanois led band sounds more like a hippie jam band than a dub album although there are elements of studio tweaking in the final mix. Lanois hired jazz musicians Daryl Johnson and Brian Blade as his rhythm team but it is the evocative, earthy and bluesy vocals of Trixie Whitely that motivates these songs all written by Lanois. The back liner photo shows the band playing live in a comfy front room setting and this seems to define the music on these bluesy jam sessions moreso than the titular Dub album. Still, a solid listen for fans of Daniel Lanois always intriguing brand
of experimental adult alternative music. B-
GARTH HUDSON: PRESENTS A CANADIAN CELEBRATION Geddes from B7 OF THE BAND (CURVE) Garth Hudson was/ is the ace keyboardist for Canada’s legendary band who go by the simple moniker The Band. That group had so many influential songs and albums in the late ’60s with their return to roots music after the hyper rock of so many acid acts. This CD’s title is as clear as can be. All the musicians here are Canadian and Hudson handpicked his favourite The Band songs which are sometimes lesser known songs alongside big hits such as Acadian Driftwood by Peter Katz, This Wheels On Fire by Neil Young & The Sadies, You Ain’t Going Nowhere by Kevin Hearn, Chest Fever by Bruce Cockburn and Ian Thornley, The Shape I’m In by The Sadies and King Harvest by Blue Rodeo. For hit potential I would give a listen to the beautiful cover of The Moon Struck One by Raine Maida or Chantal Kreviazuk’s Tears Of Rage but this album is solid and stunning from pillar to post. Hudson plays keyboards on every track playing his signature Lowrey organ, whereas most rock and rollers of his era all played the Hammond B3, giving The Band some of its unique sound. A treasure trove of delightful Canadian talents celebrating the timeless The Band. A-

spot production—or live audio. For music projects I work closely with the artist and do my best to ensure that the recordings we end up with are what the artist wants and needs. I am willing to play different roles to suit different projects as these relationships often have a unique dynamic. I am able to produce, track, mix the project or all of the above. Q: Do you have a distinct target market or do you look to offer your services to a broad spectrum of people? AS: I am mostly marketing myself to musicians who are in the earlier stages of their career at the moment. Musicians who are thinking about their first, second and third releases and have been playing shows around the Okanagan but haven’t quite started touring across Canada are the best match at the moment. I am currently offering a special for “smaller” music projects— three songs for $400. Q: What do you think is the best thing about being a young entrepreneur in your field? AS: I think it’s being able to just be surrounded by creativity all of the time. You get to see projects go from an idea or a thought to a complete piece of art. There are also endless possibilities of where those projects might go and what they might do. So, it’s the combination of ongoing creativity and endless possibilities.

HARRIS, FRANK E.
Passed away peacefully at Kelowna General Hospital on November 4th after suffering a massive heart attack. Most beloved husband and soulmate of Valerie who were together for over forty years. He will be greatly missed by his grandson Steven and wife Kim of Oakville, Ontario and his step daughter Lisa and her daughter Haley of Saskatoon, Sask. Sadly he was predeceased by his only child – daughter Valerie in May of 2005 and son-in-law Ken in Sept. of 2004 and four siblings Arthur, Alice, Ethel and Hilda. He was born on December 11, 1912. He started work at age 14 attending night school to become a mechanical engineer and apprenticed at Bellis and Morcom in England. After the war ended he took a job as engineer at a sugar plantation in British Guyana and then emigrated to Canada and became Manager of Industrial Engineering at Canadian Arsenals, Small Arms Division, Long Branch, Ontario where he remained for 23 years. After retirement he and Valerie lived in New Zealand for six years. Coming back to Canada they settled in Westbank, BC. He particularly enjoyed the friends and neighbours around him in Sun Village, nature in all its forms, travelling and seeing new places and a love of semi classical music. He was an interesting man with a droll sense of humour and happily he retained all his faculties until the end. There will be no formal service by request. Donations in Frank’s name to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, #4-1551 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9 would be appreciated. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com. Arrangements in care of First Memorial Funeral Services, (250) 762-2299.
PORTER: JESSICA MICHELLE
Died tragically on November 2nd, 2010. Born Jennifer Michelle Palatin on February 21st, 1980, she was welcomed as the ﬁrst grandchild for Inez & Martin Palatin who were always there with tremendous support and guidance. From early years on, Jessica naturally warmed her way into the hearts of so many. Her sense of adventure started early tobogganing in the orchard, then onto mountain bikes, motorcycles snowboarding and soccer. Later, she returned to the farm where horses were her passion, often gathering around a big bonﬁre with family and friends after a day of riding. Jess worked many years with Overland Freight while also working at her own company, High Maintenance Lawn & Landscape. After leaving Overland she partnered in On-Site Delivery. Working long and hard hours were very much a part of Jessica’s everyday life. Fitness was important too, be it kick boxing or training in the gym and she would not hesitate to take others under her wing and help anyone willing to be a more ﬁt person. Jess was tenacious and pushed the boundaries and sometimes the rules. She could warm you with her smile and keep you captivated with her quick wit and sense of humour. Jess was indeed a very special gift, leaving an imprint on your heart never to be forgotten. She will be greatly missed by many. Jessica is survived by her mother, Janine Palatin, grandmother Inez Palatin, Aunt Julie Samson (nephews Jared and Patrick), Uncle Randy Palatin (wife Deanna), father Grant Bennett (step-brother Zachary), Aunt Cheryl Rogers (cousin Cameron), Uncle Chris Bennett (cousin Nexus) …. extended family and numerous friends. Jessica is predeceased by her grandfather Martin Palatin and her Uncle Reg Palatin. A Celebration of Life will be held at Summerhill Pyramid Winery, 4870 Chute Lake Road in Kelowna on Saturday, November 20th at 1:00 pm. Everyone who wishes is welcome to come and share a story of how you remember Jessica, too. In lieu of ﬂowers we ask that you make a donation to a charity of your choice in Jessica’s honour. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com. Arrangements entrusted with First Memorial Funeral Services, Kelowna. 250-762-2299

Study ranks vegetables
We all know we need to eat our veggies, especially with the new wave of processed food com-
panies touting how their sauces and canned pastas now contain a full day’s allotment of vegetables—
but Iva Young thinks that’s just a bit deceiving. “It’s a tricky definition of terms,” said Young,

author of Healthy Mom (www.ivayoung.com). “It’s really not as healthy to eat processed foods to begin with, but for them to say that using vegetables as fillers somehow makes processed foods healthy is disingenuous, at best. ” Young believes that we need to eat actual vegetables if we want to have a real healthy diet and there are five key veggies that top her list as the healthiest. They include: • Spinach—Popeye was right. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, vitamin C, vitamin B2, calcium, potassium and vitamin B6. It’s also a good source of fiber, copper, protein, phosphorous, zinc, vitamin E, omega 3 fatty acids, niacin and anti-oxidants. • Lettuce (greenleaf, red leaf, romaine) —Lettuce is a low calorie fiber food that is also a great place to find vitamin A, folic acid, lactucarium (which helps enhance calmness and pain relief), as well as the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. Lettuce also contains a good amount of anti-cancer properties. • Broccoli—Besides having great flavor and texture, broccoli contains copious amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, beta carotene and vitamin K. The minerals in broccoli include calcium, potassium, iron and folate. A great source of fiber, broccoli also provides lots of bioflavonoids, which is an antioxidant that helps protect against cancer and heart disease. • Brussels sprouts—A staple in the diets of Asian cultures, who are among the longest lived people in the world, the crunchy garnish contains lots of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A, beta carotene and vitamin K. Great anticancer vegetable. • Cabbage—Although best known as the partner of corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day, cabbage is a great low calorie food that contains a good amount of fiber, calcium and vitamin C. Cabbage is incredibly packed with substantial anti-cancer agents. When picking vegetables, Young believes that fresh and frozen vegetables are better than canned vegetables, because they have less added salt. If you have to buy canned vegetables, she recommends draining the water they are packed in before preparing them to remove a good amount of the added sodium, or simply buy those veggies labeled as having low sodium.
