Focus shifts to businesses

Mayors feel budget auditor needless


The bullet riddled SUV that acted as a macabre reminder of Sunday’s gangland slaying was finally towed from the crime scene late Tuesday, but questions about how the community can keep similar activities at bay still linger. “I’ve been asked about whether we can have a (citywide) ban on clothing associated with gangs,� said Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd, offering up one of the ideas thrown her way. “Maybe it’s a possibility that we could enforce it, but maybe it couldn’t be done in the next door neighbour community.� On a business-to-business level, that kind of colour ban was already encouraged by the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce in 2009, but the chamber’s current CEO, Caroline Grover, said it’s far from a mandate. Also, its effectiveness is hard to judge. The Delta Grand Hotel has a colour ban policy in place and yet that didn’t stop the most violent gang outburst this city has seen from happening on The Delta’s front steps. “Obviously we’re working with the local RCMP to see if there’s more we can do, but we’ve already taken a zero tolerance perspective on allowing gang colours in the hotel,� said Daniel Bibby, general manager of the hotel. “It helps, but all it does is ensure that anybody on the resort, who’s identifying themselves as part of a gang, removes the clothing for the sake of other visitors.� At best, it’s an uneven approach, and Mayor Shepherd said that a concerted education campaign may be a better way forward. “There are things businesses can do,� she said. “(For example) if people are buying big merchandise items with cash, then maybe businesses shouldn’t take that money.� Shepherd recently identified her desire to see a gang-business registry be published so area residents can make informed choices. It’s been done in the past by the RCMP, but that’s a complicated issue which requires a lot of effort. Above all else, however, she’d like to see community members meet to discuss how to nip gang activities in the bud so younger generations don’t see cause to take the Bacon brothers’ path.

The parliamentary secretary to Premier Christie Clark may feel the appointment of an municipal auditor-general will be good for smaller municipalities, but local mayors disagree. Chilliwack Liberal MLA John Les, a former mayor and former president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, says all elected officials, no matter what level, can benefit from financial oversight. “This (municipal auditor general) office, particularly for smaller municipalities, can provide real value,� said Les in defending the new position. But local mayors James Baker of Lake Country, Keith Fielding of Peachland, Doug Findlater of West Kelowna and Sharon Shepherd of Kelowna all question the need for such a position in B.C. given that there are already stringent rules in place governing the reporting of municipal finances.

Agriculture land set aside for future rec site Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna has convinced its agricultural advisory committee (AAC) to support its proposal to use agricultural land in Glenmore for future recreational purposes. And it did so by agreeing to address agricultural land issues in Glenmore and other areas of the city. According to Terry Barton, manager of parks and public places for the City of Kelowna, the “city-wide solution” won over the advisory committee after its initial decision not to support the creation of the proposed Glenmore Recreational Park at the corner of Longhill and Valley Roads. The committee refused to support the proposal to use 10.5 hectares of ALR land because it felt the plan was not in the best interests of agriculture in the city. But after city officials went back to the committee and agreed to several measures aimed at enhancing agriculture elsewhere, the committee relented. The committee’s support is considered critical to getting the provincial Agricultural Land Commission to approve the removal of the land from the agricultural land reserve. “Council asked us to get the support of the AAC, so we went back with several mitigating proposals,” said Barton. Those measures include removing

existing sports fields at Scenic and Valley Roads so the land can once again be used for agricultural purposes, moving the existing area fire hall off agricultural land to what is considered a better location and improving water and drainage on a large block of agricultural land in the Benvoulin and Springfield Road area. Moving the firehall could be as long as five to 10 years off. The proposals put to the committee also call for a covenant for the new recreation park to have the land return to the ALR when it is no longer needed for recreational use. “There are only so many things we can do in the (proposed) park so we looked instead at a city-wide solution,” said Barton. The land the city wants to use for the new park is currently privately owned but the city has made a deal with owners pending approval by the land commission to allow the recreational uses. Development of the new park would likely take place over several years, similar to the development of the Mission Recreation Park on Gordon Drive and could cost millions to complete. Some preliminary work on the recreation site concept has been started, but no specific proposal is drawn up yet. The decision to move forward will rest with a decision by the ALC, for approval of the land being removed from the Agriculture Land Reserve.

The patrol boat also ensures that boat operators have the correct license, registration, a visible serial number and that they are not intoxicated or speeding while riding on the water.


Municipal auditor-general position called redundant by mayors Needless from A1 Those rules include mandatory audits and the prohibition of budget deficits and the requirement that provincial permission be received in order to borrow large amounts of money. “This appears to be a solution in search of a problem,” said Baker, echoing a position paper on the proposal issued by the Union of B.C. Municipalities. “I’m not really sure why it is necessary or what is the reason for it.” Like Fielding, Find-

later and Shepherd, Baker said he feels municipalities are already prudent with their finances, noting each year a limited number of demands for additional services, infrastructure and facilities can be met because of financial constraints. “We’d would love to provide everything people want but we can’t. We have to budget within our means.” And it is not just small municipalities that are questioning the need for the a municipal auditor general. Shepherd, whose city

is the ninth largest in B.C. and the biggest outside of the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, agrees with the trio of local smaller community mayors. “It’s hard to comment because we don’t know what the rationale is for this,” she said. But she added the issue is certain to be discussed at the next UBCM meeting in September. As the chairwoman of her city’s audit committee, Shepherd sees first hand what she calls the “very stringent” accounting practices her city has to follow.

“Is this (proposal) setting up another department that will prove costly for all taxpayers?” she asked. The Central Okanagan Regional District board, on which all four mayors sit, has also come out against the proposal. The Union of B.C. Municipalities paper notes the many measures currently in place when it comes to keeping municipal finances in check, including statutory responsibilities and limits, mandatory audits, requirements for open meetings, and open financial and perfor-

mance reporting, annual reports, wage and salary reports, financial plan consultation with the public and existing third-party oversight by B.C.’s ombudsman, inspector of municipalities and officials with the community ministry. Fielding said in addition to creating another level of bureaucracy, the new proposal has municipalities concerned about potential interference in how municipalities spend their money. “The word ‘meddling’ comes to mind, doesn’t it,” said the Peachland mayor.

Findlater, whose council “took a pass” on the issue when it came to it for comment, said his personal view is that the province would do better strengthening the existing audit process for municipalities rather than creating a new level of bureaucracy. That, he said, could be done with chartered accountants and certified general accountants. In addition to municipal politicians being against the plan—which was first announced by Clark during her run for leadership of the B.C. Liberal Party—the NDP

has come out against it as well. But the NDP’s opposition was slammed by Les, who said when current NDP leader Adrian Dix was chief of staff to former premier Glen Clark, that government had eight consecutive deficit budgets. “Good management of taxpayer money is not in the NDP psyche,” said Les. “So, it’s hardly surprising they would reject a look at how tax dollars are spent at the local level.”

UBCO research project to look into Western painted turtle Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If you see little turtles trapped on local ponds, don’t be alarmed. The Western painted turtle is the subject of a new UBCO research project headed by assistant professor Michael Russello and masters student

Evelyn Jensen. The pair are looking at the threatened species DNA makeup to see how the local intermountain painted turtle differs from the Rocky Mountain painted turtle, found just east of here, and the one situated in the Lower Mainland. At the moment, only

the Western painted turtle on the coast is on the provincial blue list, considered vulnerable to habitat loss and human and natural disturbances. The local ones are considered a species of concern, but Russello says this research could determine whether there should be such a distinction between the two and whether the turtles are all in danger or only a portion are under threat. Eventually, this all helps determine the best conservation methods for the turtles. Central Okanagan Regional District parks planner Wayne Darlington says the study will amount to noticing some unusual nets and red buoys in the waterways of parks like Stephens Coyote Regional Park, Mission Creek Regional Park and Rose Valley Regional Park. The nets are open at the top and flow under water with plenty of room for the turtles to breath at the surface. Each turtle will be measured and have a DNA sample taken before being returned to its natural habitat.

itially came as good news now has Kelowna’s mayor worrying about the future. “I’ve learned that the (Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit) was paid for with onetime federal funding that got allocated to the provinces,” said Mayor Sharon Shepherd, explaining that the feds gave the province $53 million in 2008 to deal with extra policing demands, and it chose to focus some of the resource on gang task forces in the Interior. Although the threeyear contract for that service will be extended, Shepherd said it may have reverberations in other policing funds. “The province is promising that money, but where are they going to get it from? It’s made it more complicated it all of a sudden,” Shepherd said. B.C.’s Solicitor-General Shirley Bond didn’t have answers for that built into her Tuesday morning statement about the province’s commitment to the

Ron Cannan continued funding of the special enforcement unit. “We want to maintain this focus on guns and gangs,” she said in a statement. Kelowna Lake Country MP Ron Cannan hasn’t indicated that more cash will be thrown at the problem, but he says the Conservatives are steadfast in their approach to keeping crime at bay. “The federal government will still continue to maintain our funding commitments, and ensure the legislation is in place to address organized crime through mandatory sentencing and police enforcement,” he said.

Cannan added that gang activity is everywhere and legislation is the best way his branch of government can deal with the problem. The need for the 16-member task force rose to the forefront Sunday when a masked gunman shot at five people in a vehicle in the parking lot of the Delta Grand Hotel. Red Scorpion kingpin Jonathan Bacon was killed and Hells Angel Larry Amero and Independent Soldier James Riach were injured. Riach fled the scene while the others remain in hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made but police are asking the public for information about a newer silver/ green Ford Explorer that matches the description of the getaway vehicle. Any information about the suspect vehicle can be called in to Kelowna RCMP at 250-7623300 or to the Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-800-2228477.

national caretaker of The Quilt—works to preserve, care for and use The AIDS Memorial Quilt to foster healing, advance social justice and inspire action. The quilt began in San Francisco more than 20 years ago with a single 18-square-foot panel and today this tapestry of hope has over 47,000 panels. These panels have come from every state in the nation and have been created by friends, lovers and family members in an attempt to transform loss and heartbreak into hope and healing. In a war against a disease that has no cure, The AIDS Memorial Quilt has evolved as our most potent tool in the effort to educate against the lethal

threat of AIDS. By revealing the humanity behind the statistics, The quilt helps teach compassion, triumphs over taboo, stigma and phobia; and inspires individuals to take direct responsibility for their own well being and that of their family, friends and community. Julie Rhoad, executive director of The NAMES Project Foundation, said, “We are eager to share The AIDS Memorial Quilt with your community for it is unlike any memorial ever created. With teddy bears and Boy Scout badges, love letters and photographs, this North American treasure was created by the people for real people who were

loved and lost to AIDS. “We thank the Living Positive Resource Centre for their visionary efforts in hosting this event and invite you to see what wonderful healing art we have created together as an international community.” Sections are continuously on display across the country in schools, places of worship, community centers, businesses, corporations and a variety of other institutional settings all in the hope of making the realities of HIV and AIDS real, human and immediate. To date, more than 19 million people have seen The AIDS Memorial Quilt at tens of thousands of display around the world.

Our hand in the weather


t seems summer has arrived. Too bad it took until almost the middle of August to get here. Not that we’re the only place enduring weird weather. When we were lamenting the cool temperatures and cloudy skies of July, the rest of the continent was sweltering in record heat and withering humidity. Those kinds of conditions have become so commonplace, some cities, like Toronto, have instituted a system of extreme heat alerts that include a proto-

col to extend the hours of public pools, handing out water in parks, and visits by health officials to rooming houses and other residential premises to ensure residents aren’t suffering. Meanwhile, much of Europe has been soggy and cooler than normal, after a hot, dry spring. In Africa, Somalia is suffering its worst drought in 60 years. The entire Horn of Africa, which also comprises Ethiopia and Kenya, has received two to eight inches less rainfall this year

than normal. That’s sparked a famine that has claimed the lives of more than 29,000 children under the age of five over the past three months. Climatologists like to remind us that such extremes aren’t as wild and unusual as they seem. The La Nina and El Nino phenomena, in which the surface temperature of the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean is warmer or cooler than normal, have been influencing the climate for more than 20,000 years.

Scientists say that it’s impossible to blame specific weather events like storms, droughts, heat waves and extreme cold on global warming caused by humans. But climate change, settlement of expanding populations into areas prone to extreme weather and our inaction to deal with that likelihood have a way of turning bad weather into a disaster. So, as much as we like to curse Mother Nature when the weather’s foul, we must also shoulder some of the blame.

Education is the best way to bring end to minority slavery


hen I was on holidays last month, I visited the International Slavery museum in Liverpool, England. This museum captured the history of slavery, emphasizing that even today there are groups and individuals fighting for freedom and equality. Most of us think slavery was abolished years ago, but in fact it still exists. There are families in Third World countries who sell their children to pay off debt, or indenture them as servants to more affluent families in an effort to support them-

selves. Yet these cultural norms tend to butt against government policy which aims to provide equality to all citizens regardless of race, colour Jane or gender. A prime example Muskens of this happened in India last week when a famous Bollywood director released a film which highlighted government policy which forces universities to reserve spaces for students from the lower castes. The film centres around the problems associated with the policy and illustrates how the caste system is so entrenched in Indian cul-


ture that even if a low caste student manages to get one of these reserved seats he/she often faces extreme isolation as they are not accepted by the other students. They tend to be shunned from participating fully in the university experience which in turn drives them to dropping out. In turn, on a yearly basis, many of these reserved seats don’t get filled by the minorities they are set aside to serve, and usually are opened up to those from the higher castes. This film created such an uproar when it was released, that it was banned in a number of Indian states. But India isn’t the only country trying to increase the university/college participation rate of under-repre-

sented minorities. Since 1965 affirmative action legislation in the United States has forced many colleges and universities to develop and meet yearly quotas which admit students based on criteria such as race and colour. These policies were initially created to increase black American enrollments in post-secondary education. Many countries today have some form of government policy to help support groups which are most likely not to transition to college or university. Canada, New Zealand and Australia all have similar legislation which supports their indigenous populations to enroll at either a college or university. This is usually done through some form of reserved seat-

ing and scholarship programs. Even countries such as China, Japan, Brazil, South Korea and most European nations have similar policies to improve the participation rates of under-represented minorities. When I walked through the slavery museum I was bombarded with how cruel people can be toward other people they consider inferior. We have a long way to go to change this way of thinking. Education—whether it’s primary, secondary or post-secondary—has the ability to empower those who receive it. This empowerment will hopefully change the way we see and treat each other. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College.

To the editor: Re: Conditional Sentence For WifeBeating Cop Questioned, Aug. 12 Capital News. I was married off to an abusive alcoholic with a bit of a sociopath condition in 1961 and endured for 21 years. It didn’t matter where you sought help, it was frowned on even by family and I came from a family who was ‘normal’ in every way and considerate of each other. When I finally got enough spunk in Sas-


katchewan to file for divorce it was still under the 81 act and difficult. The lawyers where something else, all six of them couldn’t even file for child support or a disclosure or protection. $66,000 and eight years later, finally, a court hearing where I was banned to the hall for four hours listening to unbelievable negotiations, like “Go for the kid if she doesn’t give me everything I want.” I was the working contributor of more of the assets than him. I replied: ‘My children are not for sale—give him anything he wants,” but I want a decree absolute today. Everything the judge said was “off record” and in two years all the assets he received where gone and so was his job. I had kept quiet because of the job. Any chance of support for kids—gone. That’s who really gets affected. And maybe that is why this lady (wife of RCMP Staff Sgt charged with beating her

and threatening in front of their children to kill himself) was careful what she said—she is hoping for some sort of settlement that is fair and equitable particularly if she is negotiating sole custody of the children as reported. Nothing has changed in 30 years and as long as family law remains the way it does today and different provinces have different rules and powers she may be as stuck, as I was. When the children are pawns in seperations sick situations develop, just like him beating her in front of the kids. Do you know how common this is? Good job for seeing the light and reporting it as the way it should be reported. Nothing has truly changed to spousal abuse and acceptance by society and lack of support in the courts in 30 years.

Comments from the Web on gang shooting

Blame crime on urban growth To the editor: Many residents of Kelowna were surprised and shocked by Sunday’s gangland-style shooting, but they shouldn’t be. Their support, be it active or passive, for the continued growth of the city made such an event inevitable and it was only a matter of time before it occurred. Local growth boosters like to tout the benefits of growth such as new jobs and greater prosperity but are reluctant to acknowledge the other side of the ledger—the costs

of growth. And one of the costs is more and new kinds of crime. The online Encyclopedia of Crime and Justice outlines the historical conditions which have given rise to organized crime in cities. Changing the past tense to the present in that description gives rise to the following quote: “Urban conditions [provide] the kind of environment in which organized crime flourishes. Large population sizes [provide] a critical mass of offenders, customers and victims and thereby [facilitate] the

development of profitable markets in illicit goods and services.” Kelowna achieved its critical mass when the city grew above 100,000, which was shortly before the Hell’s Angels officially opened a chapter here. Kelowna’s growth boosters talk about it one day becoming a “worldclass city.” With the shooting, Kelowna has joined Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver which can boast world-class crime.

We are thrilled to participate in this celebration of nature, culture and recreation,” said interim Alternator director Heather Martin. With over 250 visitors so far, GeotagArt has caught the imagination of parks visitors. At the June Springs entrance to Myra Canyon, more than 130 people have viewed work by multi-media artist Victoria Baptiste from the Syilx (Okanagan) Nation. Her video, I Am Here, is a five-minute narrative short created with help from her daughter. “It’s a message of about how we as indigenous people are here, we

Warren Hooley have these different stories and sites and practices that we still utilize today,” says Victoria. In addition to current works by artists Victoria Baptiste, Mariel Belanger, Sue Bizecki, James Masz and Natalia Leigh and David Wilson, three new Syilx artists, will launch their work on Aug. 26 at MyraBelleview. Tracey Kim Bonneau, independent media artist and storyteller, presents an inspirational recording about living life to the fullest with pride and spontaneity. Bonneau sings along to the song Ride, by Gar-

ry Oker, as a group of four bikers are heard pulling up behind her car, helping to set the scene. Levi George, an emerging visual artist exhibits a series of landscape photographs taken on-site. Warren Hooley, a selfstyled progressive lyrical hip-hop artist, debuts his first single. He introduces his work, “Dance With Me is a song I started writing two years ago that looks back at every relationship I’ve had in my life,” Hooley said. “It’s almost like I fused all the women I’ve dated in my life into one woman and I ask her to take a chance with me and dance the dance of life together. “What better place to meet someone than MyraBellevue Park.” The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art has received support from the Assembly of B.C. Art Councils and the City of Kelowna for this project, which runs until Oct. 31.

Prince George falls behind in donor challenge

WESTBANK LEGION veteran members take part in last Sunday’s memorial service.

Remembering our fallen heroes The Westbank branch of the Royal Canadian Legion held a special ceremony last Sunday in memory of both fallen veterans from past wars and the controversial Dieppe raid during the Second World War on Aug. 19, 1942, that saw 3,623 of the 6,080 men, predominantly Canadians, killed during the ill-fated landing of Allied forces on France’s coastline.

Kelowna blood donors continue to support the Kelowna Blood Donor Clinic in Week 2 of the Interior Drive for Life Challenge. Kelowna leads the challenge, reaching 109 per cent of its collection target to date, while Prince George falls behind, reaching 94 per cent of its collection target to date. The Kelowna Blood Donor Clinic also saw a high number of first time donors in Week 2 of the challenge with blood donations collected from 22 brand new donors. “It’s really exciting to see such a high turnout of both donors and first time donors,” said Tammie Watson, spokesperson for blood donor challenge. “Having a healthy mix of regular and new donors is what keeps our blood supply strong now and into the future.” The blood donor challenge runs until Thursday, Sept. 8. Appointments may be booked by calling 1-8882-DONATE (1-888-236-6283). The Kelowna Blood Donor Clinic is located at 1031865 Dilworth Dr., and is open on the following dates throughout the challenge: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from noon to 6:45 p.m.

It has come to the attention of the Central Okanagan Emergency Shelter Society that door-to-door solicitation is being conducted on behalf of the Kelowna Women’s Shelter. However, the shelter society’s policy prohibits door– to–door fundraising or canvassing for donations. The Kelowna Women’s Shelter wants to alert the public that no group or individual is authorized to solicit on behalf of the agency.

Not since the signing of the original Operating Orders on Osoyoos Lake 25 years ago, regulating water levels on the lake between the U.S. and Canada, has there likely been so much interest in a meeting on water. Elected officials on both sides of the border of Osoyoos Lake—as well as water utility staff, scientists and local citizens—are signing up to attend the Osoyoos Lake Water Science Forum, Sept. 18 to 20, in Osoyoos. “It’s a critical meeting,” said John Slater, Liberal MLA for Boundary-Similkameen and former chair of the Okanagan Basin Water Board. Slater will be providing opening remarks along with Washington State Senator Bob Morton. “Water is the one limiting resource to human settlement, industry and commercial growth. We know with population growth, agricultural growth and climate change, we’re going to have to be more careful with our water use and concerned with keeping what we have clean,” added Slater. “Water is a big issue for us here in Central Washington,” Morton added, noting the need for increased water storage. “We’re in a state where some of our main aquifers will be out of water in 10 years.” Morton said a siphoning project currently underway, taking water from the Columbia River to Odessa, Wa. will help, but he also sees a potential dam on the Similkameen River, helping retain water in Washington, as another solution to the state’s water concerns. “It’s obvious we need to address this issue and the sooner the better,” he said. The forum, presented by the OBWB, the Town of Osoyoos, the International Joint Commission and several other partners, will cover numerous water issues affecting the Okanagan Valley and in neighbouring Okanogon County. Milfoil control will be discussed, including efforts to control the invasive weed in Osoyoos Lake on both sides of the border. For more information on the forum visit

Sissons at RDO camp

High ranking athletes here for Apple


Colton Sissons knows this Western Hockey League season is a big year for him. The second year Rockets forward heads into his NHL draft year this season. And he didn’t have to wait long to get the year started after being invited, with 36 other prospects from around the CHL, to the NHL’s Research, Development and Orientation camp this week near Toronto. “It’s really exciting,” said Sissons prior to flying to Toronto. “I was pretty surprised when I got the email. I’m a little bit nervous but should be fine once I get there.” Sissons is coming off an excellent rookie campaign that saw the North Vancouver native skating with the Rockets’ most effective line for the second half of the season. In 63 games, the 6-foot-1 right winger had 17 goals and 24 assists. He was also a plus 15 and was counted on in almost all situations

last year. “Last year it took me awhile to get settled in and calm my nerves and not be so anxious with the puck,” he said. “It clicked right before Christmas when I got put on a good line and it went really well after that. Hopefully this year I can put up some more numbers.” There will be more eyes on Sissons this year and it begins this week with his inclusion in the NHL’s Research and Development camp. For two days 36 of the top prospects from across the country will scrimmage to test out some potential changes to NHL rules. The NHL reintroduced the RDO Camp last summer after first holding it in 2005. Many of the rule changes that were tested last season, including some faceoff variations, switching ends after regulation, hybrid icing and no-touch icing, will again be on display this year for further diagnosis. The final session of the RDO Camp has been designed exclusively for the

SuperSkills competition at All-Star Weekend. The prospects will be competing in variations of the events that will likely be put on display in Ottawa on Jan. 28, 2012, including Fastest Skater, Breakaway Challenge, Accuracy Shooting, Skills Challenge Relay, Hardest Shot and Elimination Shootout. For Sissons it’s a chance to get his feet wet under the scrutiny that is sure to come with playing in the year he is eligible for the NHL draft. “I’m just trying not to think about that too much,” he said. “I just try to do my thing, work hard and we’ll see what happens. I feel really good. I feel strong.” Sissons is among a solid group of returning Rockets players who are excited to get the WHL season going. After pushing powerhouse Portland to six games in the second round of the WHL playoffs last season, Sissons says the players are chomping at the bit to build on last season.


KELOWNA ROCKETS second year player Colton Sissons is in Ontario this week taking part in the NHL Research, Development and Orientation camp. “I really like the guys we have coming back,” he said. “We’re not losing too many guys. Hopefully

we can get off to a quicker start this year. That will be a big thing. I think we can be one of the top run-

ners in the West if we buy in early to what the coaches are saying.”

Some of Canada’s finest triathletes have confirmed their participation in the 29th annual Pushor Mitchell Kelowna Apple Triathlon taking place in Kelowna this weekend. Amongst them are three high profile Canadian triathletes in 36-yearold, two-time Olympic medal winner Simon Whitfield of Victoria, 26-year-old Kyle Jones of Oakville, Ontario and 22-year-old Edmonton native Paula Findlay. Findlay is coming off of a 29th place showing in the ITU Triathlon World Championship Series Race in London on Aug. See Triathlon A14


Jays represent B.C. at Canadian Junior Baseball Champs The provincial champion Kelowna Jays baseball team has left for the Canadian Junior Baseball Championships in Windsor, Ontario where they will represent B.C. against the best junior baseball teams in the country. The 10 team event starts today with the finals set for Sunday. The Jays roster is comprised mostly of college players who played for the Jays this summer. However several players are reporting back to college meaning the entire Jays’ roster wasn’t available to make the trip. To fill out the roster head coach Geoff White

and assistant coach Marty Gallant have added players from the Kamloops Sun Devils and a few from other parts of B.C. Kelowna Jays star center-fielder KP Hlatky will be leading the way supplemented by clutch hitting Jake Chapman and catcher Cam Firth. Okanagan College starting catcher Steffan Mckee and steady third baseman Brad Clarke along with local pitchers Dawson Newman, Brandon Klym and Mike Monster will bolster the pitching staff. Connor Lillis-White, considered one of the most improved pitcher for the Jays over the sum-

mer, will get a start on the hill as will Connor Russell (Van. Island U) and Danny Moore (TRU and Sun Devils). Some other pick-ups that will add serious strength to the lineup are shortstop Keenan Takatch (who played for the Jays last season and also pitches), Cam Strachan (Sun Devils and TRU) who pitches, plays infield and hits with power, and Matt Leschuk (TRU and Sun Devils), a solid utility player. Rounding out the roster are two more college players who are expected to be big contributors - outfielder Sean Sutton (UBC) and infielder

Aaron Tyake (Van Island U). The tournament features two division consisting of five teams. Each team will play four round robin games and the top two teams in each division cross over for the first playoff round. The winners go to the gold medal game and the losers play to see who gets bronze. The Jays will open the tournament on Thursday against Newfoundland/Labrador before taking on Nova Scotia and Quebec on Friday. Kelowna closes the round robin with a game Saturday against Ontario 1.

Lumsden pitches her way into a four-year US scholarship STAFF REPORTER


KELOWNA’S Ally Lumsden has accepted a

scholarship to continue her fastball career in the USA.

problem stepping into bigger shoes. “We feel confident that Ally has the ability to be groomed and improve over four years as an outstanding student athlete for our Lady Lynx softball program,” said Kennedy. “Since seeing Ally throw during the triple crown tournament, we have been determined to have her as part of our first ever Lindenwood University inaugural season.” Lumsden doesn’t mind the pressure either. “I think it’ll be really cool to have that title down there. It’s also cool to be the only Canadian going down there,” said Lumsden. Kelowna Heat head coach Bernie Penner said that Lumsden is a fantastic teammate and a great person who will be missed by the entire team. “Ally has and always

had the tools to be a very dominant softball player. She is a gifted multisport athlete and she plays the game of softball with ease,” said Penner. “When she steps on the mound, her physical appearance, confidence and presence is intimidating and that in itself creates outs.

“Ally’s upside is tremendous and with fulltime training and coaching it is going to be excitvfurther.” Lumsden will study either communications or business while attending Lindenwood University. She left for Belleville on Aug. 13.

After two provincial championships, a western Canadian silver medal and eight years with the Kelowna Minor Fastball Society, Ally Lumsden is taking her talents south of the border. Lumsden accepted a four-year scholarship with the Lady Lynx softball program of Lindenwood University in Belleville, Illinois. For Lumsden, the scholarship is “way up there” on her list of accomplishments. Lumsden visited the school in July after her pitching talents were noticed by Charlie Kennedy, head softball coach of Lindenwood University, rduring a triple crown tournament in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, this June. When she saw the

campus, her mind was made up. “It’s a little school: I really liked that about it. It’s kind of how UBCO is to UBC, it’s a sister school to a bigger school in Missouri. It’s beautiful down there too,” said Lumsden. Kennedy introduced Lumsden to the pitching coach and fitness trainer, both of whom she will be working closely with over the next four years. “I didn’t get a chance to meet any of the other girls, but I’ve been talking to them on Facebook and they seem really great.” Lumsden is the first girl to be offered a fouryear scholarship by the Lady Lynx softball program. She will also have the challenge of being the only freshman on a roster compiled mainly of juniors and seniors. Kennedy believes that Lumsden won’t have a

Honorable mention from the riders went to 13-yearold Max Langille who landed his first backflip on dirt. “With lots of riders travelling to participate or watch friends there were a lot of new first impressions in the Bike Park over the weekend” said Silver Star’s Ian Galbraith “We owe a lot of thanks to our extremely dedicated trail crew who not only manage to keep our trails in incredible shape every day, but keep pushing the envelope here at the resort like they did by building the Jump Jam course.” Organizers say the success of this year’s event means the first ever Two Wheel Festival at Silver Star will be celebrating its second annual next summer.

No magic to awards magician is winning See The Help Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If there’s one thing the little readers gathered at the Kelowna Public Library branch downtown this week know for sure, it’s that a colouring book without pictures is a rip off. Thankfully, with a little help from Leif David, they collectively conjured the pictures from their imaginations—the colours and everything in between—all while seated in orderly fashion in a library conference room. It’s one of the first tricks up the 25-year-old’s sleeve as David dazzles 100 mesmerized youngsters, many in his favourite age category. “I like the six to seven-year-olds the best,” he says. “They really get the magic and they’re really

into it.” They also might remind him, even a little bit, of the shy kid who started with a magic kit his uncle gave him and wound up entertaining day cares and seniors homes and anyone his mother could book for him at the tender age of eight. Where his peers may just be launching their careers, this magician can already claim 17 years of performing experience. It paid for his equipment. It paid for his braces. Eventually it paid for college. Halfway through this summer all that practice even managed to secure him two second place finishes in the International Magic Competition held in Vancouver. “Entering such a prestigious competition was a little nerve-racking because there were so many

talented people performing; but I went there doing my best,” he said. His best was good enough. The person who beat him in the close-up competition, a magician known as Sterling, is off to one of the biggest competitions in the world with his act, and David hopes he’s not far behind. The ultimate goal for the young local magician is to travel the world with an act that fits in a suitcase, but for now, he’s quite pleased just to have a job he loves. Out of high school, he tried going straight, taking a computer administration diploma—but it wasn’t for him. “Nobody applauds when you fix their email,” he explained. “Magic— I love it. I get to see the happy side of everything. “When people are hav-


LEIF DAVID delights his audience’s with magic.

ing a bad day, I get to help them have a good day. I’m just here to have fun.” Whether that ultimately means performing in Vegas against the seven

Cirque du Soleil shows, Donnie and Marie and the Celine Dions of the stage circuit or continuing with a long list of Okanagan bookings—dry grads, kids birthdays, conferences and the like—remains to be seen. For now, he’s savouring the success he had impressing a group of magicians who know the best of the best when they see it. That, and playing a rather unique hand of cards, pulling an ace of hearts from his mouth, say, or pouring a glass of water into a rolled up newspaper over a fouryear-old’s head then unfurling the dry sheets to squeals of delight from his audience. David’s company is Ali K. Zam Productions; one can find him at www.

Rococode launches new era at venue Pyper Geddes CONTRIBUTOR


fter months of waiting, Habitat is now the proud bearer of a liquor primary license. Through numerous city council meetings, rezoning of the building, an abundance of consultations with the BC Liquor Board and the undying support of the community of Kelowna, the downtown venue has now made the transition from a food primary license to an event-driven liquor primary license. Owner and director of operations, Quinn Best, couldn’t be happier to see the license finally mounted at the entrance of Habitat. “We look forward to getting back on track with

live music in Kelowna, specifically with a larger capacity and later operating hours. “This license gives us a whole new scope of events that we can host at Habitat,” Best said. The venue located on Leon Avenue can now focus on its primary purpose—providing Kelowna with a one-of-a-kind space that caters to the arts and culture community through live music and special events. The new license also comes with a few new changes including increased hours of operation (11 a.m. to 1 a.m.) as well as an increase in capacity from the previ-

ous 133 occupants to 225. Although Best pushed for a minors endorsement, upon receipt of the liquor primary license Habitat will now operate as a 19+ venue. “‘All ages’ with liquor has always been a challenge for any establishment in B.C. We hope to revisit this a year from now as safe, all-ages events are very important to the cultural fabric of Kelowna.” It has been a long time coming for Habitat to arrive at this point and without the support from the City of Kelowna, as well as the community, this might not have all come together. Habitat’s first show with their new license will be with Rococode, featuring local guests Fields of Green and Kingdom

Cloud on Friday, Aug. 19. Rococode, hailing from Vancouver, is unfamiliar band made up with the familiar faces of Laura Smith, Andrew Braun, Shaun Huberts and Johnny Andrews. The band played its first live show ever here in Kelowna back in October during the BreakOut West Festival. Our local boys Fields of Green will not only be joining Rococode on stage at Habitat but they also join them as part of the 2011 PEAK Performance Project Top 20 artist line-up—a great achievement for the young, eclectic rock quartet. Finalizing the lineup for Friday night is the three-piece pop ensemble of Kingdom Cloud who also hail from Ke-

lowna. The electronic trio made up of Laura and Evan Jeffery along with Jaeden Leimert are making waves for themselves as well as they are set to open for Handsome Furs in Victoria on Sept. 9. So if you like good music and you like the fact that Habitat has its new liquor license, come on down Friday night and let the good times roll. Tickets for Rococode with Fields of Green and Kingdom Cloud are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Doors are at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m. Habitat is located at 248 Leon Ave. Pyper Geddes is the general manager of Habitat and an A-OK contributor.


eeing The Help, a film from a novel by Kathryn Stockett, may well have been the best couple of hours spent in a long time. Fittingly, the earlier showing on Saturday night was attended by a large number of book club members and from what I’ve heard, the book is a must read also. Set in the Jackson, Mississippi, of the ’60s, this is a riveting, emotional, funny (in places) movie with rich characters, with superb acting. Bryce Dallas Howard is remarkable as the incredibly awful Hilly. While not perhaps a household name, she played a vampire in the movie Eclipse. The 1960s in the south was a time of the KKK. It was a time of the Freedom Riders (a story unto itself), the Kennedy assassinations and the murder of Martin Luther King. This was a time of unrest and angst, and black workers in The Help were smack in the middle of it all. Centered around the black workers’ slow walk to equality, even to being refused the use of the toilets in the very homes in which they raised white babies, it was a time of “coloured only” entrances to public buildings and riding in the back of the buses. Who can forget that, while Sammy Davis Jr. was good enough to entertain the white folks in Las Vegas, he wasn’t allowed to swim in the pool of the very hotel in which he entertained. And while we might think ourselves the kinder, gentler nation to the north, we too have had our moments in the history of social equality. We have only to look at the


Susan Steen mistreatment of the Chinese workers in the building of our railroad, or the ‘Irish need not apply’ signs so prevalent in the East to see that we were not without blots on our blotters too. However, we are not a country where slavery had its roots. The Help portrays all that is bad and ugly, without any good in the treatment of black workers who “just weren’t as good” as the people who employed them. It was a small step forward from house slave to the house maids of the 1960s South, but these baby steps were a part of the tide of Civil Rights which ultimately swept the nation. What makes The Help stay on our minds is the knowledge that the stories are based in fact and while there are indeed many moments of levity, the whole package is truly a brilliant look back at a time that was not as simple nor as kind as we often think it was. The sets are true to the era. What we do share with our southern neighbours are the homes, the clothes and the styles of the ’60s portrayed in The Help. I’m sure I actually saw my parent’s couch in one scene—just as awful as I remember it. And oh, those hairstyles—what were we thinking? The Help is truly a See Steen A18

obert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian gets a new start without Schwarzenegger, but rather, is the big screen debut of Jason Momoa. Although his is not a household name, Momoa got his start in Baywatch Hawaii and more recently starred in Stargate Atlantis and Game of Thrones. If you caught him as Khal Drogo in Thrones, I think you would agree his is a great choice to play Conan. After his father is murdered and village destroyed, a young Conan ventures into an unforgiving world where he survives as a thief, pirate and warrior. On his path of wanton adventure and women, he chances upon the warlord responsible for his tribe’s destruction. As he tracks the warlord, Conan battles monsters and witches. With violence true to the Schwarzenegger original, it is rated 18A with explicit violence. ••• The original Fright Night was a comedy-horror classic starring William Ragsdale, Roddy McDowall and Chris Sarandon. The remake stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and is the story of high school senior Charley Brewster (Yelchin) who suspects that his new neighbour Jerry Dandrige (Farrell) is

The Help: 5 reels


Rick Davis a vampire. After witnessing Jerry attacking a young woman, Charley and his friend (Mintz-Plasse) must find a way to stop the bloodsucker. Although Sarandon was brilliant in the original as the vampire, I am really looking forward to Farrell sinking his teeth (pun intended) into the role. Rated 14A with a warning of coarse language, violence and frightening scenes. ••• Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is known for breaking the accepted rules of making movies. Only he would take the character of Machete from his Spy Kids movies and turn it into last year’s uber-violent Grindhouse spin-off Machete. And while making that movie with Jessica Alba, he decided to revisit his Spy Kids franchise with Alba as the adult lead. In Spy Kids: All the Time in the World she plays the pregnant stepmom to young Rebecca and Cecil and the wife of a spy-hunting reporter (Joel Mchale). Steen from A17 must see, it makes us face again the very depth we often go to as a society to be “right” no matter what the basis is for the conviction or who that conviction might destroy in the process.


JASON MOMOA makes his big screen debut in the remake of the Schwarzenegger classic Conan the Barbarian. Unbeknownst to her new family, she is a retired secret agent. However, she is called back into action and requires the help of her step kids to complete the mission. With the help of the original spy kids (Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara), they must work together to save the world. Also starring Jeremy Piven and Ricky Gervais with appearances by Danny “Machete” Trejo and Antonio Banderas, it is rated PG with a warning of violence. Spy Kids: All the Time in the World is being presented in “4D Aroma-Scope” which means that it is in 3D with everyone getting a scratch and sniff card that will allow

people to smell aromas from the film. ••• One Day follows the friendship of two people (played by Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess) over a period of 20 years, but their dramatic relationship is only revealed to us on each anniversary of the day they met. While the story is slightly reminiscent of When Harry Met Sally, the screenplay is adapted by David Nicholls from his acclaimed 2009 novel of the same name. Rated PG with nudity and sexual language. Rick Davis is the manager of the Capitol Theatre in West Kelowna.

There were many great lines, but one that resonates was: “Am I going to believe all the bad things those fools say about me today?” This is indeed a five reel film. Its messages, imagery and truth will not soon be forgotten by any-

one who sees it. Enjoy the movie, enjoy the wonderful sound track and read the book.

Worthy albums from two country/roots women stalwarts EMMYLOU HARRIS: HARD BARGAIN (NONESUCH)

I usually listen to Emmylou Harris albums, appreciate and enjoy them for a short while, and then I pass them on to friends and kin who are much bigger fans. But no one will wrestle this excellent new Harris disc from me as I think it is her best work since the acclaimed new millennium albums Wrecking Ball (no relation to the song of the same name mentioned in the Clark review below) and Red Dirt Girl. Harris has turned from a song interpreter in her early years to a solid songwriter where she has penned or helped pen almost every track on Hard Bargain—odd that the title track is a cover of a Ron Sexsmith song. But what really sold me on this disc, other than Harris’ poignant, topical songs like My Name Is Emmet Till (a true story of the murder of a 14-year-old boy by the KKK) and her sometimes hardbitten views on difficult times in America, is the great sound and the superb backing musicians on Hard Bargain. There are only two extra players here with producer and multi-instrumentalist Jay Joyce and drummer and keyboard player Giles Reaves. They really flesh out the sound here beautifully as Harris and the duo often play a couple of instruments each. This helps out especially on the up-tempo tunes. Check out the brilliant Wilco-like rocker New Orleans and the swampy funk on Six White Cadillacs that I kept on repeat mode for more than I care to admit. One of the later tracks on Hard Bargain is titled Darlin’ Kate and I am sure it is a tribute to the late Kate McGarrigle (writer of Linda Ronstadt’s hit song, Heart Like A Wheel) while the gorgeous song just before it, Goodnight Old World, is performed purposefully like a McGarrigle Sisters forgotten gem. There is just so much to recommend this superb disc, from the pretty guitar work on The Ship On His Arm to the breezy old-timey tribute to her Big Black Dog. Thirteen tracks and no duds equals an A



Terri Clark’s new album came out last week and made an impressive showing at No.4 the same week that Eric Church’s new album Chief made its debut at the No.1 spot on the country charts. While Church is a relative newcomer, Clark has been on the scene since the mid ’90s and she has expanded beyond the limited Canadian market where Clark has earned several hits Stateside. Her current hit single in Canada is the old ’70s

Trooper nugget We’re Here For A Good Time (Not A Long Time) and you can sure bet writer Ra McGuire is hoping like crazy his old gem crosses over to the USA market (although McGuire has had a very good year financially since Campbell’s soup used his Raise A Little Hell for its TV adverts). This new Terri Clark disc—I think number 10 in a very successful career—starts off with the hard guitar-driven country rock of Wrecking Ball, the Rolling Stones-like Breakin’ Up Thing and the Rickenbacker guitar ring of the anthemic Northern Girl. But there are also some more thought-provoking ballads on Roots And Wings since this is Clark’s first album since her mother’s passing, which may somehow ex-

District sees value in SIR program

‘Good deal’ on land buy


After 20 years, the Sterile Insect Release program is reaching its goal of keeping codling moth populations at a manageable level. Hugh Philip, pest management specialist of the SIR program, presented an overview of the SIR program to District of West Kelowna council on Tuesday, Aug. 9. He said that the initiative has come a long way in its 20-year existence. The specific target of the SIR program is to prevent codling moth from damaging the economics of the fruit industry through delivery of an efficient, effective and sustainable area-wide pest management program. The codling moth is a pest that damages apple and pear crops. According to Philip, for many decades after the moth’s arrival in the early 1900s, fruit growers struggled to contain it using increasing quantities of chemical pesticides. Concerns over unacceptably high rates of codling moth damage, along with a desire to significantly reduce the use of chemical pesticides, prompted growers, local governments and scientists to search for a new approach to pest management that was both effective and environmentally friendly. The SIR program was that solution. The total cost of the SIR program was approximately $2.8 million in 2010. Philip said that despite the program’s success, some people still question the cost. “Quite often there are comments made that this program seems pretty expensive,” said Philip. “I think it’s money well spent. The cost for taxpayers, for the achievements that this program has done, I feel like it’s a pretty minimal amount of money.” Components of the program include area-wide management, sterile moths and mating disruption, population monitoring, urban visits, enforcement and education. Cara McCurroch of the SIR program said that the program hasn’t been without its challenges. “The challenges that the program faces in the next little while is, ‘How do we maintain the cost for the program, at the level that it’s at, that the industry itself can afford?’” said McCurroch.

Long walks on the beach are about to get a little longer at Marjorie Pritchard Park. The District of West Kelowna paid $1.525 million for property at 1595 Pritchard Road on Tuesday. The purchase creates contiguous open space at Marjorie Pritchard Park, where, until now, two sections of the park were divided by the private parcel. The district’s cost is less than the listed price of $1.69 million and the 2010 assessed value of $1.551 million. According to Mayor Doug Findlater, the investment was a good deal. “This was so strategic to lengthen a whole park in both directions. It was on the market and it absolutely made sense at a reasonable price,” said Findlater. The deal marks the first parkland purchase since the District of West Kelowna’s incorporation in December 2007. Findlater said that the full park could be ready to use as early as this sum-

Fur Brigade celebration to focus on education


West Kelowna will celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of the Okanagan Fur Brigade Trail on Sept. 23 and 24. The event will be held at the Westbank Community Park, adjacent to the Johnson Bentley Memori-

al Aquatic Centre. The event is being put on by the Historic Westbank Association, in partnership with Westbank First Nation. Betty Hersey, events director for the Historic Westbank Association said that the celebration will feature learning centres.

“The centres will be about such things as canoes and transportation methods, fur and trade goods of the time, life on the trail, edible plant roots and berries and an encampment by the Black Powder Group,” said Hersey. According to Hersey, there will also be infor-

mation about how various Okanagan places got their names. The learning centres will be available to the public, for free, on both Friday and Saturday. On Saturday afternoon there will be a narrated reenactment of fur trading followed by First Nations entertainment.

Hersey said that the Historic Westbank Association has gotten local schools on board with the celebration. “We have already invited all the Grade 5 classes from west side schools to attend this event: That’s about 300 children. It fits so perfectly with their curriculum.” According to Hersey,

the event is all about education. “Our purpose in sponsoring this event is to educate people about the great importance of the fur brigade trail,” she said. “Hopefully when they pass by the cairn in Westbank, they will remember some highlights of the things that they learned at this event.”

“There is a process for government to expropriate necessary land where fair compensation is paid,” said Cummins. “This deal has nothing to do with fair compensation; it is a squandering of as-

sets which belong to all British Columbians. “This is a bad deal for West Kelowna. It’s a bad deal for British Columbia. It must be stopped now.”

The District of West Kelowna council adopted the Westbank Centre Revitalization Plan at council chambers on Tuesday. The planning process was initiated in 2010 and has involved a series of public consultations. “I’m really happy to see this coming forward. It’s the end of a long journey and a lot of hard work. I think we’ve got a really good viable blueprint for the future for revitalizing Westbank,” said Mayor Doug Findlater. The plan is broadly premised on expanding the economic base, improving the quality of both public and private spaces and enhancing the cultural and heritage aspects of the community. Based on a 25-year planning horizon, the vision is to make Westbank Centre a thriving, unique, walkable, transit-oriented and attractive urban place. Council agreed that although the plan has been adopted, there is a lot of work to be done. “The key is going to be in the implementation of what really is an excellent start for the town centre area,” said Coun. Bryden Winsby. Coun. Duane Ophus agreed with Winsby’s assessment. “What we have to do now is not let the momentum slide, we just have to keep pushing on and we have to keep making sure that the appropriate municipal investment is made in this process to actually achieve a revitalization of Westbank Centre,” said Ophus.

those dollars are being used wisely or if there may be greater value in an existing taxpayer investment that we can benefit from today. I am encouraged to share with you one such example this week, of a long-term government asset potentially paying dividends to our region. Many area residents within Okanagan-Coquihalla are likely familiar with the Pacific AgriFood Research Centre located in the hills above Trout Creek just off Highway 97. However, what may be less familiar is the important work that is conducted here, supported largely by your federal tax dollars. Last week, I was honoured to represent Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz in presenting a relatively modest $ 261,000 grant in support of research being conducted in partnership between Innovative Food Systems

Dan Albas Corp. and scientists at the facility. This research can have a significant impact on our local fruit growing economy as you will soon learn. One of the current challenges with freshly picked fruit is that it typically has a shelf life of roughly seven days. In order to access larger and more profitable markets, shipping must be done either by air for international delivery, or via truck for the North American markets. Both options are extremely expensive and

time sensitive. Imagine if a new innovative antimicrobial packaging system could prevent fungi, mould and bacterial growth and ensure that fresh fruit remains fresh for upwards of 25 to 30 days. Not only does this technology preserve ripe fruits, it also helps prevent costly waste. This increase from roughly one week to one month means that marine shipping can now be an option for international markets and rail for those elsewhere around North America. Decreased shipping costs allow growers to more economically access and capitalize on global demand. Marine and rail transportation are also more environmentally friendly and can reduce carbon emissions by roughly 60 per cent when compared to existing shipping options. Food safety is also in-

creased as this technology can protect food from many common pathogens and that in turn may help reduce health care costs. The Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre in Summerland represents a significant investment of our tax dollars over time. However, the experience and expertise of the staff and infrastructure of this facility are important assets for our region. In this case it is encouraging that a partnership with industry in support of our local agricultural community can, in turn, enhance our regional economy, all done locally. The Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre in Summerland will be holding an open house towards the end of September. I would encourage all citizens to attend and learn more about this unique facility. Dan Albas is the Conservative MP for the Okanagan-Coquihalla riding.

Encouraging drivers to make safer driving choices I ‘‘

’ve read commentary on a couple of news stories this week that our political representatives should take note of. In the newspaper world, you send your comment to the editor to go in the next publication as a letter to the editor. In the Internet world, comments can be submitted on the spot and a moderator can approve and post them within minutes of the news story going live. There might be dozens or hundreds of comments attached to one news story. As well, those reading each column can express approval or disapproval with the click of a mouse. Unlike letters to the editor, these Internet comments often seem to lack much thought or care. But the sheer volume of commentary, along with the approvals/disapprovals, offer a compelling indication of public opinion. There are two current news stories that could not be more different, but share a common thread of commentary. One is the gangland shooting in Kelowna that left a gang leader dead and a “full patch” Hells Angel fighting for his life. The other is a Vanrcouver bicyclist fighting a ticket for failure to wear a


Paul Hergott helmet arguing that mandatory helmet laws are unconstitutional. The common thread of commentary is the suggestion that we should bear a financial responsibility for our dangerous conduct. The Hells Angel who chose a life of violent crime should pay for the expensive medical care he is requiring as a result of that choice. Those suffering a head injury as a result of the choice not to wear a helmet ought to do the same. Interesting suggestions. Our universal medical system is very expensive to operate. Pass some of that expense on to those who make dangerous choices that contribute to the expense and we should end up with safer choices and a lower cost medical system. There would be fewer injuries and taxes would go down. What a beautiful thing. To some extent, this already exists in British Columbia. Search “third party liability” in the gov-

ernment of British Columbia web site and you will be taken to an explanation of the Health Care Costs Recovery Act that came into force on April 1, 2009. This novel piece of legislation allows the government to recover the health care costs paid to treat injuries caused by negligence in the province of B.C. As you will read at the end of this column, though, not all negligently caused injuries are captured by the legislation. It has always been the law in British Columbia that if you are injured as a result of someone’s dangerous choices, or “negligence,” you can sue the negligent person to recover fair compensation for your losses. That fair compensation is referred to as your “claim.” Even though your claim is paid by an insurance company, not by the negligent person directly, this compensation based legal system has an impact on our choices. We make safer choices to avoid claims that will increase our premiums. The thing is that with our universal medical sys-


tem, you don’t have to pay for the care you receive in the hospital, for your visits to your doctor, or for a lot of other medical care, so those expenses are not included in your claim and are not passed on to the negligent person’s insurance company. Your claim includes only a portion of the losses arising from your injury. Until April 1, 2009, the taxpayers of British Columbia were essentially subsidizing the dangerous choices of negli-

gent people by paying the other portion. Good on our political leaders for removing that subsidy. With the full cost of negligent conduct being passed on to the insurer, higher financial consequences will be passed on to the negligent wrongdoer and there will be a higher incentive to make safer choices. If you have a look at the provincial government web site, you will see that the Health Care Costs Recovery Act does not apply when the insurance company is ICBC. Why is that? Are taxpayers subsidizing crash

claims just like we used to subsidize claims arising from other negligent behaviour? Perhaps if the full cost of negligent driving is passed on to negligent drivers through insurance premiums, including expenses paid for through our universal health care system, there will be more of an incentive to make safer driving choices. I know, the last thing we want is higher auto insurance premiums. The thing is, we’re paying the expense of our medical system one way or the other. I say attribute the expense appropriately to

Science must be kept free from political interference W

hile doing salmon-genetics research at the Pacific Biological Station on Vancouver Island, federal fisheries scientist Kristi Miller discovered that a virus may be killing large numbers of Fraser River sockeye before they reach their spawning grounds. The research was published in the prestigious journal Science, but Miller wasn’t allowed to speak to the media about it. The government’s Privy Council Office said this was to avoid “influencing” the ongoing federal inquiry into the Fraser sockeye decline. But it’s hard to believe the Cohen Commission wouldn’t want to encourage discussion about its area of inquiry. And it’s in the public interest for the science to be available to a wide audience. This is just one sign that science is playing second fiddle to political concerns in Canada and the U.S. Recently, we’ve seen more “muzzling” of scientists, funding cuts and

to assess risks to human health, infrastructure, and the environment. And in early August, it announced that more than 700 Environment Canada employees face the axe in the coming months. According to the Hill Times, the affected workers include “100 physical scientists, 19 meteorologists, 45 computer scientists, chemists, biologists and engineers.” Fisheries and Oceans Canada and National Research Council staff have also received layoff notices. The cuts seriously jeopardize the ability of government departments to provide effective leadership and public science when it’s needed more than ever. Our blinkered approach to science at home is bad enough, but we’re also gaining an unenviable reputation abroad. Canada has been criticized in recent years for hindering rather than advancing global efforts to combat climate change. In June, Canada opposed a plan to classify chrysotile asbestos as a hazardous substance at


David Suzuki an increasing disregard for science in policy-making and public conversation. The U.S. has seen calls to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency and the rise of climate change deniers in national politics. Last September, the head of the Canadian Science Writers’ Association, which represents science journalists, spoke out against the “unacceptable political interference” in how government science is communicated. Now, everything federal scientists say to the media must be approved by political staff. They are not allowed to deviate from approved “media lines”. The government has also slashed funding for climate change research, jeopardizing our ability

Fifty countries have banned it for domestic use, including Canada. And the government has spent millions removing it from buildings, including Parliament. This scientific antipathy could not come at a worse time.

But powerful interests from all quarters are making themselves heard.

Option available to treat degenerative neck condition


ervical spondylosis is a neck condition due to agerelated wear and tear to the neck vertebrae, causing soreness, distention, radiating pain or heaviness of the neck, shoulder, arm or head and even numbness of the fingers. The cause is commonly due to degeneration of the discs and cervical vertebra which puts pressure on the spinal cord or surrounding nerves in the neck region. The tender tissues of spinal cord and blood vessels are mostly protected by the bone of the spinal column. As long as we are healthy everything is fine, but when we get older this bone starts to degenerate and bony protrusions can hurt the soft tissues. Spondylosis means that the actual body of the vertebra starts to wear out and the disc in between becomes flatter and dryer. This can lead to compression of the nerve or closing of the blood vessels. Symptoms of cervical spondylosis are pain and stiffness in the neck, tingling and numbness in the arms, hands, legs or feet, limited range of motion, dizziness and headache. The pain can be so severe that we can’t think clearly and it can keep us awake at night. The condition can also affect coordination, reflexes and walking. Exercises, gentle manipulations, traction, massage and warmth applications can be helpful to this condition. Surgery is a last-case option, because of the delicacy of the surrounding tissues. Acupuncture can be helpful too. In Chinese medicine we say the cause of

this condition is due to kidney deficiency and qienergy and blood stagnation. The kidney are said to control the bones and have an influence particuJames larly on the spine. As the kidneys weakKaufman en with age, the bones get weak. In some people the bones get weaker faster than others and this is a direct cause of a kidney deficiency. Acupuncture works buy using needles to stimulate qi-energy and blood circulation in the area of pain and discomfort. We do this by stimulating the meridian pathway associated with the pain, both locally and distally. Of course it is always important to do points for the root cause of this condition which is the kidneys. One of the reasons for the pain can be a high level of tension in the surrounding muscles. This is a defensive reaction by the body to protect the neck. But this tension can also maintain the pain. So we have to release the tension gently—not too quickly—and acupuncture can help here. When the tension is lessened more exercises can be done that will also increase the flow of energy and blood. Acupuncture is a very helpful alternative in treating cervical spondylosis and is very effective in reducing the pain. It mobilizes the body’s own reserves and helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. James Kaufman is a registered acupuncturist at Okanagan Acupuncture Centre, 1625 Ellis St, in Kelowna.

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a byproduct of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: � Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions #1 suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON �My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA�I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON�Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.�For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC�Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.
