THE HYUNDAI GENESIS was the automaker’s first serious entry into the luxury car segment back in 2008, and it hasn’t looked out of place since against its German, Japanese and domestic rivals.

UBC OKANAGAN’S annual Fine Arts Graduation Exhibition will be a different experience this year thanks to the efforts of the Conduit event organizers to raise the bar for local arts events.

KELOWNA council would be misguided to think highrises are the answer for keeping young people from leaving town to find jobs elsewhere.

Close calls cancel open burning in West Kelowna Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER

Two runaway slash burns, one that required a call out to the BC Forest Service, is all it took for wildfire sensitive West Kelowna to shut down open burning six weeks early this season. Other fire departments in the Central Okanagan say they are closely monitoring open burning season, but are not ready to suspend permits just yet. As for West Kelowna fire chief Wayne Schnitzler, he says conditions are the driest he’s seen in his municipality since moving to the area 14 years ago. “This is the earliest I’ve ever called a Ministry of Forests crew out to help us. I think they were very surprised,” said Schnitzler. “We have hit this critical time where we haven’t had any green up yet and on top of that…we haven’t had any moisture (and) we’ve had no frost in the ground. Put a fire into the mix and there’s the possibility of something going sideways…with those conditions.” Open burns went “sideways” on Pettman and Hayman Roads early Wednesday afternoon. Both were permitted burns that got away from experienced permit holders, said Schnitzler. “Both people were doing fire hazard reduction work, which they’ve done prior and of course the surprise for them was the excessive dryness coupled with the wind,” the fire chief continued. “The one on Pettman Road, he had actually put it out the day before, put water on all his piles, but the wind picked up, caught a spark and it took off.” The Pettman Road fire reached one hectare in size, with the one on Hayman Road being contained at 30 metres by 30 metres. Schnitzler said an abandoned campfire near the mouth of Powers Creek also spread to a spot sized fire on Wednesday. “We’re only in March and normally my crews wouldn’t be called down there until May or June,” he said.

Root out plants invading Okanagan Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Unless you never go outside, the Invasive Plant Council of B.C. wants to recruit you. Invasive species of

plants are the second greatest threat to the country’s biodiversity, second only to habitat loss, according to Jessica Hobden, who is giving presentations about invasive plants to groups around

the Okanagan for the IPCBC. And, it’s those who are outside at work or at play who are on the front lines in terms of spotting new invaders. She’s working on

a Spotter’s Network of people who will report to the local invasive weed committee or directly to the toll-free IPCBC hotline or online. She was talking to members of the Peach-

land Sportsmen’s Association Thursday evening, with the idea that such groups have many members who are regularly out See Targeted A13

Take a stand against invasive plants Steeves from A4

Let them know how irresponsible you feel they are being, to continue to be greedy at the expense of our natural environment. Gardeners depend on the knowledgeable people at our nurseries to be trustworthy and truthful, ethical and responsible in both their conduct and in their advice. I would hope they will respond to a few words from customers

working all over the province to eradicate weeds that have the potential to destroy native ecosystems, and there they are, still being sold in nurseries. After looking at the list, I would strongly urge you to confront local nurseries wherever you discover that they have a plant from the invasive plant list for sale.

who notice they’re carrying plants which are time bombs waiting to engulf natural plant communities. And, that’s exactly what some of these plants do. Their seeds or roots hop fences, or grow under them and infest natural areas where delicate fritillarias and buttercups grow and proceed to out-compete them for light, water and nutrients, choking the

life out of them. So, do your bit. Learn to identify them. Pull or photograph and report them. Don’t let them grow in your garden and discourage nurseries from selling them. If everyone did their bit, it would make a big difference. Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Mader sentenced to 8 1/2 years for his part in killing Mike Simmons

before breaking down. In a letter read to the court by defence lawyer Deanne Gaffar, Mader apologized to Elliott and his family. “I wish I could have helped him but I didn’t know what to do,” Mader said in the letter He added he was scared for his life. He noted Elliott was a good person and said he carved a cross over his heart so he could always remember Elliott.

STAFF REPORTER

Daniel Mader has been handed 18 months of additional prison time for his role in the 2005 slaying of Jody Elliott. Elliott was shot twice and taken to a remote mountainous area where he was beaten and left for dead. Appearing in B.C. Supreme Court for sentencing Thursday, Mader briefly expressed remorse

Mader said he was high during the incident and not the same person he is today because he is off drugs. Crown prosecutor Martin Nadon sought an 11-year sentence for Mader on the manslaughter charge. He noted Mader shot Elliott in the leg and the buttock at a known drug house on Old Ferry Wharf Road. He added that while Mader was ordered to shoot Elliott by another man and com-

plied out of fear, that did not erase his culpability. Nadon said Mader clearly had a choice to obey. He submitted that the beatings that followed for Elliott at the hands of Mader and three other men were what eventually killed Elliott. One of the other men led police to Elliott’s body in a mountainous area outside the city. “Elliott was left in dire straits, without any effort on Mader’s part to provide assistance for him.”

Nadon noted Mader would be given “two-forone” credit for time he has already served, adding up to just over seven years. Gaffar asked the court to consider that the duress Mader was placed under left him without an option to escape. She saidhe was up on a mountain, where the only transportation was in the hands of two other men. “There is no choice.” She also noted Mader made an effort to shoot Elliott in a way that was not fatal and hid the gun afterward to prevent it being used again. She added Mader feared the man who ordered him to shoot Elliott. Nadon’s submission read that a few weeks earlier, the man had held Mader down and pulled out one of his teeth during a disagreement over a $40 drug debt. Gaffar pointed out Mader was only 22 years old at the time of the incident. She noted he had

been addicted to substances since 2004 and had worked his way up to crack cocaine. She added Mader has no criminal record and is remorseful for what happened. “One cannot diminish what happened at the initial incident on the mountain,” said Gaffar, referring to Elliott’s beating with hammers at the hands of Mader and the three other men. She noted the event was compounded by the second incident, where the three other men returned to beat Elliott again and removed his head and hands. “Mader knew nothing about that, and did not participate in that,” she said. Mader pled guilty to manslaughter on Feb. 11. Judge Alison Beames noted the role played by each of the four men was different. In Mader’s case, she said the shooting left Elliott vulnerable and unable to escape. She noted Mader failed to withdraw from events, although she accepted he could not have withdrawn once up

on the mountain. She also pointed to the inequality of four men attacking a single man. Beames said factors in Mader’s favour included his guilty plea, his young age at the time of the incident, the fact he had no criminal record and his genuine remorse. She also noted his efforts to take substance abuse courses while in prison, his efforts to find work after being released on bail and his support from family and friends. Seven people submitted letters of support on Mader’s behalf. “The chances of his successful rehabilitation are enhanced by his ability to regain community and family support,” said the judge. Beames sentenced Mader to 8 1/2 years, with the seven years credit. Mader was also given a lifetime weapons ban and ordered to provide a DNA sample. While she said Mader has made great strides, she told him to seize the opportunity to turn his life around.

Commitment to help homeless reinforced by regional district Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER

More emphasis will now be placed on helping the homeless in the Central Okanagan. Regional district chairman Robert Hobson said drug policy coordinator Christene Walsh’s role is being expanded this year to address homelessness issues. “It was part of the Four Pillars project anyway, but it wasn’t where the focus has been,” said Hobson. “Christene Walsh has really been focusing on the drug service issues, detox and other things. She’s now going to spend some of her time looking on the homeless issues as well.” Hobson said Walsh would become a full-time employee in August, as opposed to a part-time contractor, to reflect her increased role. Hobson said it made sense for Walsh to tackle homelessness along with drug prevention. “A lot of good things have been achieved in the drug area, so there is (need) we feel for part of her work to go into the homelessness area. “There’s a very close connection be-

tween homelessness issues and drug and dependency issues in any event.” Hobson said the board’s decision to hire Walsh full-time would fulfill the first of 28 recommendations in a regional drug strategy, called the Central Okanagan Framework for Action, which was completed by the Central Okanagan Four Pillars Coalition in May 2005. The coalition is comprised of about three-dozen community-based service agencies, which are attempting to find solutions related to substance use and abuse in the Central Okanagan. In addition to hiring a drug policy coordinator, the strategy also recommended urban renewal initiatives, improved needle drop box services, a youth shelter and drop in centre, support of methadone treatment programs, increased capacity in youth, adult and aboriginal addictive services, an RCMP special projects team, expansion of lowincome housing projects, funding for supportive recovery housing, public health outreach and public education. Walsh has been working with the four pillars initiative for three years.

HUNDREDS of people attended last Saturday’s annual seed swap and travelling film festival on topics such as food and farming at the Okanagan College campus. Proudly clutching bouquets of pussy willows, seed packets and drought-tolerant plants, eager shoppers crowded around the tables and asked gardening and food questions of the many farmers who attended.

Although it’s mostly surface water we see and hear about, there’s a lot of use of underground sources of water in the Okanagan Valley. But there needs to be proper management of the resource, commented Remi Allard, president of the B.C. Groundwater Association, a hydrogeologist and groundwater engineer who also owns Sustainable Subsurface Solutions of Kelowna. The association is holding its 40th annual general meeting in Kelowna this week, discussing both technical and trade issues, from safe well drilling to aquifer testing. People in B.C. feel water is a right and it’s often taken for granted, Allard said. But, he says in parts of the Okanagan Valley

Remi Allard the water balance hasn’t been well-monitored and development has occurred without a long-range view. One of the initiatives the association is involved in is the Groundwater Advisory Board to the provincial government, and there have been meetings with provincial officials on the Water Act modernization process that’s currently underway as well. One of the goals of that process is regulation of groundwater extraction, its use in priority areas of

the province and for large withdrawals. But licensing of groundwater is not an issue everyone in the association agrees on. “There’ll always be a reluctance to move toward licensing,” said Allard, although he admits that personally, as a hydrogeologist, he recognizes the importance of measuring in order to manage the resource. “Having more information is important,” he said. “But there are concerns about too much regulation and about government becoming too involved. For one thing, it’s expensive.” Allard says there have been a lot of changes in the association in its four decades. It began as an association of drillers, a practical organization, but has evolved to include both practical and more technical discussions, and

everyone involved in the groundwater industry. Its 200 members hail from all around the province. The association represents well drillers, pump installers, hydrogeologists and other technical people as well as manufacturers and suppliers, and government regulators. And, Allard feels water purveyors should also be involved. Although they have their own association, the B.C. Water and Waste Association, he said groundwater is not well understood. Yet, most local irrigation districts rely on wells for at least a portion of their water supply, and one, the Rutland Irrigation District, relies entirely on a system of wells. As well, one system in Peachland is based on wells, as are utilities in Winfield, Lumby, Silver Star and Armstrong. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Suspect in attempted abduction case appears in court Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

The man arrested following a crash involving two police vehicles after what RCMP describe as an attempted abduction over the weekend returned to court Tuesdsay. Matthew Levi Xavier Chadsey, 27, is charged with flight from police, assault and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle in relation to the Friday night incident. At approximately 7:20 p.m., a woman was walking along Borden Street when a man in a vehicle approached her and attempted to lure her into his vehicle. “The female refused his advances at which point the driver attempted

to grab the female to drag her into his vehicle. The female was able to flee the area on foot,” said Staff Sgt. Bob Reuter.

A short time later, officers spotted the vehicle and attempted to pull it over, but the driver would not stop.

Both officers involved in the crash were taken to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Drunk teenager is struck by a car A teenaged girl who had been at a party where alcohol was served was lucky she wasn’t more seriously injured after being struck by a vehicle trying to avoid her in the road. Just before midnight on Friday, a person turned onto Bach Road from Dodds Road and spotted someone hunched over in the middle of the roadway. The man yelled at the person to get up when he saw vehicle lights approaching, and the girl got up, but walked across the eastbound lanes of the road as the approaching vehicle came closer. “The male driver of the eastbound vehicle saw the female and tried to avoid her by braking and veering right,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “Unfortunately, the female was walking the same direction and so the driver was unable to avoid her.” The girl received non life-threatening injuries to her right side and chest, and was taken to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment. Police say the girl had earlier been at a party where alcohol was being consumed. She left the party and has no recollection of the events between leaving the party and being in hospital, police say.

Police began pursuing the car, and, at the intersection of Richter Street and Raymer Avenue, the driver lost control of his

â–ź FOREST FIRES

Dry conditions mean burners must be careful Burning from A1 “That was enough for me to make my decision.� Normally, the cut off for open burning would have been April 30. Schnitzler said his decision to implement the open burning ban was not influenced by last year’s forest fires in Glenrosa and Rose Valley on July 18, but was based solely on existing conditions. Although the chief said he remains sensitive to the fact memories of those fires are still fresh and may still cause some

anxiety for some West Kelowna residents. Meanwhile, permit holders are allowed to burn agricultural debris in Kelowna, Lake Country, Joe Rich, Ellison, Wilson’s Landing, North Westside and Peachland. Kelowna fire chief Rene Blanleil said that his city has at least 100 permit holders, predominantly agricultural land owners, many who haven’t had an opportunity to exercise their permits because few burning days are available each year, with burning regu-

lations being tightened up recently. “We’re going to be monitoring it on a weekly basis, but we’re going to carry on with open burning. As people come in for open burning permits, new applicants or people who we’ve had issues with before, we will go out to inspect their burning sites,� stated Blanleil. Lake Country fire chief Steve Windsor said he may consider ending burning season early. “I’ve had discussions with Kelowna and all the other players and right

now in Lake Country we think we’ll probably be allowing burning for another two weeks,� mentioned Windsor. “It’s definitely dry out there and people need to be careful.� Central Okanagan Regional District fire services manager Rod Miller said chiefs in the rural areas would be going out to inspect the burning sites. Schnitzler said that his department could have inspected burn sites too, but he felt the risk was still too great.

“You look at these sites, there were owners in attendance, people thought they put out the fire and things still happened. “Right now the conditions make that situation a reality that these incidents can happen. They’re not intentional by any means. “For me to issue a permit with that risk to that permit holder, I just don’t feel I’m doing the residents of West Kelowna a benefit.� jluciw@kelownacapnews.com

Four-car pileup in West Kelowna One man was taken to hospital Tuesday after a four-car crash caused by a driver who entered an intersection after apparently confusing which traffic light he should be following. At about 12:20 p.m., police say the driver of a southbound GMC pickup truck was waiting in the left turn lane at the intersection of Highway 97 south and Boucherie Road. “The left turn lane has a dedicated light, which signals for left turns only,� said Const. Steve Holmes. “The light was red, however, it appears that the 79-year-old driver mistook the green light, meant for the through traffic, and decided to make the left turn across the northbound lane of oncoming traffic. “ The turning pick-

up struck a white Subaru travelling through the intersection. That vehicle, driven by an 89-year-old man, spun into the centre of the intersection where it hit the centre median that housed the left turn light standard, sheering it off. The Subaru also collided with two vehicles that were in the same left turn lane the pickup had been in. Police say the Subaru first hit a Ford pickup, driven by a 51-year-old man, and then an Acura, which was also hit by the light standard. The driver of the Subaru was taken to hospital for treatment of non lifethreatening injuries and the driver of the GMC was ticketed under the Motor Vehicle Act for failing to yield on a left turn at a red light.

â–ź DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT

Kelowna’s future is not just about building highrises P erhaps the folly of the CD-21 is that the chicken came before the egg. There are scientific arguments about the ageold chicken and egg thing, you know. The predominant view is egg, then chicken, but clearly when developer Philip Millroy approached the City of Kelowna with funding to redesign the area behind City Park, it was chicken then egg. Some of the shenanigans the lengthy political process that followed has created reminds one of chasing a headless chicken around the backyard. Mind you, I think the reason it’s degenerated into such lunacy is that the whole concept lacked a solid seed from the beginning.

WORDSMITH

Jennifer Smith Somebody needed to prove out the need for such a community of tower and downtown office space before we started to draw the plans to build. Kelowna is now the oldest community in the country with the lowest birth rate, meaning its streets are hardly shaking with ingenuity. That tidbit has spread like wildfire, incidentally, so I know people do pay attention to these things. Virtually every 20 and 30-something I know is aware of the problem and

the statistic has taken on a life of its own as friends throw it out in conversation trying to determine whether they’re the only darn fool willing to stay. Low wages, high cost of living, little opportunity—it’s hardly a recipe for success. The City of Kelowna’s top brass seem to clearly understand the problem. We’re going to need to attract a creative class and a knowledge-based workforce, they are famous for saying. Yet the one shining example of creativity they seem to have come up with simply involves building more buildings—in an awesome and super community friendly way, mind you— but it still amounts to the same old same old.

The answer to our problems cannot always be development. This plan has been the victim of terrible political timing and a very bizarre provincial, municipal negotiation process over roads. But there’s more to council’s inability to make a decision than stall tactics or nervous indecision. At the heart of this new “revitalized� downtown waterfront is the idea that we will all need to live and work downtown in a walking community where our offices are close to our homes. Sounds good, but it’s pretty hard to picture what the heck everyone will be doing down there if no one has a need for an office. It’s just a thought,

but if the City of Kelowna had started from a position of developing its economic base—whether it’s in information technology, clean energy, animation, what have you— people might understand why this form of development is so necessary. Sounds a little tough love, but sustainability can’t just be about build-

ing buildings and achieving check marks for making them “LEED� the way in environmental design. Sustainability is about making it a logical choice for those young people to stay and live and work in Kelowna. We have to be able to sustain a life. Perhaps once every-

Kelowna lands and exempted pesticides such as acetic acid, dormant oil and safer soaps. The City of Kelowna Parks Department has reduced its pesticide use by 90 per cent over the last 10 years. In 2008, Kelowna was the first municipality to become PlantHealthBC accredited. Playgrounds are not sprayed and most park areas receive no spraying at all.

The city is hopeful that new provincial legislation will further restrict the use and sale of cosmetic pesticides.

2010 marks the second year of the City of Kelowna’s pesticide use regulation bylaw and its “Be Pesticide Free� education campaign. “The Be Pesticide Free campaign continues to help residents learn how to create healthy yards without the use of pesticides,� said Summer Bracey, marketing and communications coordinator. “The education campaign is designed to help with the implementation of the pesticide bylaw that regulates use of cosmetic, non-essential pesticides on residential properties. “The bylaw came into effect on Jan. 1, 2009.� City staff will attend a combination of events and retailers throughout the spring and summer to provide information directly to residents. The City’s website, kelowna.ca/environment will also host a number of different information brochures and fact sheets, plus helpful external links. Topics include managing pests, weeds, aphids, powdery mildew and fruit pests in residential yards. Another pamphlet explains how to read a pesticide label and determine which pesticides are permitted by the bylaw. “Residents can apply for a one-time exemption to deal with infestations

one understands what this new knowledge-based economy is all about, and someone can assure us we do in fact have one, it might be a little easier to get everyone’s head around the need for a 10, 20 or 30-storey tower. And maybe then, the endless CD-21 meetings will finally stop.

Confusion surrounds responsibility for interior renovations S

trataSphere readers have weighed in on the debate of common property vs. private property, revealing that much confusion surrounds the issue. The discussion was

prompted by an owner who complained that she couldn’t replace her carpet with laminate because the strata council stated it was common property and the request was denied.

If council’s claim is correct then that would mean the flooring inside the private unit would be for the use of all other owners and that any repairs would be paid for by the corporation.

This is nonsensical. The owner claimed that the council was misinterpreting the Strata Property Amendment Act to prevent the installation of the flooring. Subsequently an-

other reader contacted me to say that flooring must be common property because an owner in his building had damaged the carpet within the unit and, following a legal opinion, the corporation was re-

quired to pay through its insurance policy. Whenever you throw insurance into the mix most everyone is bound to be at least a little confused. Debbie Tuddenham,

a broker with Capri Insurance, has volunteered her expertise to guide owners through this esoteric exercise. During the initial phase of a strata, the developer is required to insure the property, including all fixtures inside the units, such as cupboards and flooring, she says.

Gunnar Forsstrom However, following the first annual general meeting the strata is on its own and this insurance coverage becomes the responsibility of the corporation. It is common practice for owners to undertake improvements within their units, providing renovation agreements have been approved by council. Councils cannot unreasonably withhold approval. Once these upgrades have been completed, it is the “improvements” which now become covered by the owner’s insurance policy according to Tuddenham. So, in fact, there could actually be two insurance policies at play: the owner’s and the corporation’s depending on what part of the property is affected. The strata’s policy covers any “fixtures” upgrade/improvements to your home that are done by the original developer, you are responsible to insure any upgrades which you have done to your home after the original construction, such as upgraded carpet, cupboards or the addition of ceramic tile, etc. This is set by Section 149 of the Strata Act. Regardless of the insurance, private property still belongs to the owner and common property is owned by the corporation.

Invasive plants are deceptive Targeted from A1

invader chokes out native plants, destroying feed for wildlife and birds in the process. They include plants such as burdock, which carries velcro-like seeds that stick to animal fur and human clothing to be carried to populate new areas. Yellow flag iris is an aquatic invader that traps sediments in waterways and changes the habitat from aquatic to terrestrial, just as purple loosestrife. Such seeds as those of diffuse knapweed can remain viable in the soil for between 12 and 80 years, a good survival tactic of invasive plants, while whole fields of dalmation toadflax are often part of a single root system, Hobden said. Several that are of particular concern because they may be moving into this area are puncturevine, which can put holes in bike tires or shoes; hawkweed, which will take over swaths of grassland; tansy ragwort,

in wild areas. The invasive plants of particular concern spread prolifically and are sometimes beautiful, but that’s deceptive. They establish quickly and reproduce easily. Often they favour disturbed areas, where construction is occurring or where a wildfire has occurred, for instance. They are dispersed by vehicles and equipment which carry the seeds, as do boots, livestock, pets and even contaminated seed and feed such as hay. They are also carried in soil and fill materials. Many are also escapees from gardens and they thrive in the wild as well. Some even come in packets of wildflower seeds. Often populations can double in a matter of a few years, and their growth impacts birds as well as other plants and animals. A monoculture is often the result as the alien

which is toxic to animals; hoary cress, which creeps through a massive root system; and cypress and myrtle spurge, which exude a milky sap which is irritating and which spreads through creeping roots. Each of those, the council asks that people report so staff can move quickly to eradicate new infestations. For photos, further information, and to report new sightings, go to the website at www.invasiveplantcouncilbc.ca. You can also report sightings to info@cord. bc.ca. If you discover some of the listed aliens, pull and bag them or at least cut off seedpods. Become familiar with all the listed invasives and don’t plant them in your garden. Prevent infestations by early detection; by maintaining healthy plant communities; by revegetating disturbed areas; minimizing seed dispersal and horticultural escapes; and stay on trails.

RHODA MUELLER/CONTRIBUTOR

HOARY CRESS has become a monoculture in the

Sexsmith and Longhill area of Kelowna, where it is a sea of white bloom in May. It’s an invasive plant that spreads by rhizomatous roots. A single plant can spread more than 3.5 square metres in one year.

Facing adversity is one way to try getting our attention T 1, 2, 3, 4 PARENTS! he story is told of a farmer who had a mule for sale. He claimed that his mule would obey any command that was given to him. One prospective customer was somewhat leery. He decided to put the farmer and his mule to the test. He said to the mule, “Sit down.” But the mule just stood there. “Sit” the customer yelled, but nothing happened. He turned to the farmer and said, “You claim that his mule will do anything, but I can’t get the mule to sit down.” The farmer just smiled, reached down and picked up a 2X4, walked up to the animal and hit the mule a good one on the head. “Sit,” he said and the mule sat right down. Turning to the shocked customer, he said, “First, you have to get his attention.” I am afraid that some of us are like that old mule. One of the reasons that God allows adversity into our lives, is to get our attention. It is easy to get caught up in our own activities and busy schedules, that we lose sight of God. When we focus on our goals, careers, families and other personal concerns, we neglect to give God priority in our lives. The question immediately arises, is there some other way to get our attention? Does it have to be something painful or tragic? Theoretically the answer in no. Often times it takes more than a sermon to get our attention. Not even heartfelt

SOUL SEARCHING

Albert Baldeo conviction is enough. Usually it takes a jolt of some kind. C.S Lewis in his wonderful little book, called “The Problem of Pain,” put it this way: “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pain. It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” When things are going our way, it is sometimes difficult to turn our thoughts to God. We may have a good home, healthy children, a good income and all is well. So what is the need for God? As one man said, “If everything is going fine, why mess it up with God?” One of the best illustrations of this principle, is what happened to the Apostle Paul. He was totally committed to doing what he believed was right, stamping out the existence of the early Christian Church. He had heard the truth of Christ preached on many occasions, he witnessed the stoning of Stephen, but not even that was enough to get his attention. Luke records the incident of how God finally got the attention of Paul. On his way to Damascus, God got his attention. Luke records it this way: “And it came

about as he journeyed, he was approaching Damascus, when suddenly a light flashed around him and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, ‘Saul, Saul, what are you persecuting me?” He said, “Who are you Lord?” He heard a voice saying, “I am the Lord, whom you are persecuting.” And Saul got up from the ground, and though his eyes were open, he could see nothing. Leading him by the

hand, they brought him into Damascus. God had Saul, exactly where He wanted him and Saul was ready to listen. What does it take for people to turn to God? Does it take the death of a child, is it hurt over divorce, is it the diagnosis of cancer, Is it the loss of employment? If you are facing adversity in your life, maybe God is trying to get your attention. God got my atten-

▼ POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION

Information technology influencing the Millennials E

ven though I’m classed as a babyboomer, I don’t consider myself one. This may be because when flower power was hot and the hippies were hanging out in Ashbury Park, I was a nine-yearold kid living north of Edmonton. I saw more hippies on TV than I did in real life. I never had a chance to identify with this generation because of age and geography. That is why I found it quite interesting when I was researching the millennial generation and I came across why generations differ and why they are alike. Researchers say that generations differ based on three overlapping processes. The first is lifestyle effects. This is where the young can afford to be a certain way because they don’t have the same responsibilities as their parents. Once they become parents, buy a house and have more responsibility they change. This happens when you find yourself sounding like your own parents when trying to get your child to do his homework. The second is period effects. This is where major events impact on generations.

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens A classic example would be living through the depression or World War II. Other examples are social movements, economic downturns, medical, scientific or technological breakthroughs. For my generation it was the social change brought about by the baby-boomers. For my son’s generation, the Millennials, it is information technology such as the Internet, social media and YouTube. The Millennials are the first generation to have been raised with access to a computer and the Internet. The third is cohort effects. This is where events and trends leave a deep impression on a young adult at a time when they are developing core values. These effects leave a lasting imprint as they move through their life cycle. For example, the Presidential win by Barack Obama last year had a large impact on young

blacks throughout the world. The fall of the Berlin Wall, 9/11 and even the Winter Olympics for a Vancouver youth could have a lasting impression. For my generation it was Reaganomics, the subsequent recession, and the shooting of John Lennon. For Millennials it could be the death of Michael Jackson, the earthquake in Haiti or the war in Afghanistan.

‘‘

THE MILLENNIALS ARE THE FIRST GENERATION TO HAVE BEEN RAISED WITH ACCESS TO A COMPUTER AND THE INTERNET.

These overlapping processes illustrate that generations have commonalities. So if you are a boomer or Gen Xer and your child is a Millennial there is good chance you might be more alike than different. Boomers and Gen Xer’s value work ethics and with this comes strong support for postsecondary education. Millennials are shaping up to be the most educated generation. Some 19 per cent have some post-secondary and four out of ten are still in either college or university. Those who are not in college plan to enrol once they find the time and money. And even though it’s hard to find a job right now, many Millennials

are optimistic about the future. As the boomers retire and jobs open up, it is

this highly educated generation who will be moving into those high-paying jobs.

Red Wings soak up Okanagan atmosphere

Red Wings players worked out at Prospera Place on Wednesday as the team stayed in Kelowna for three days.

see the kids excited. They have player cards of guys you weren’t expecting. “You expected Canucks everywhere but I think it’s good for them to meet us. We’re normal guys. We’re not bad guys. We just play for a team that some people don’t like.” That’s likely no longer the case in Kelowna where the Wings have no doubt acquired thousands of new fans. But the team’s Kelowna experience will be evaluated ultimately by the team’s play on the ice, starting Friday night in Edmonton. “Obviously if we don’t win it’s not a good idea,” said GM Ken Holland. “But I believe over eight months you have to do some different things. “This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for people in Kelowna.”

STAFF REPORTER

Some Detroit Red Wings players went snowmobiling at Big White Ski Resort, while others went on wine tours or checked out downtown Kelowna’s waterfront this week. Wings coach Mike Babcock jogged past Memorial Arena, where nearly 30 years ago he played for the Kelowna Wings. Every player practiced in front of big crowds for two days at Prospera Place, watching the Wings being put through the paces as the team prepared for a Friday night game in Edmonton. And then they were gone. The Detroit Red Wings three-day stay in Kelowna this week was highlighted by an amazing donation to the Kelowna Community Food Bank, which on Wednes-

day, received food valued at over $25,000 from Kelowna hockey fans who watched the first of two practices. More of the same was expected Thursday at the Wings second open practice at Prospera Place in Kelowna as a visit to the city came and went like a hurricane. “It’s incredible,” Wings general manager Ken Holland said after the first practise. “Six thousand people come watch a 45-minute practice. I think it really goes to show the passion of Canadians to the sport of hockey. I thought it was awesome. “When we set this up we hoped to get a couple thousand, so to come out here today and see that many people is incredible.” When Holland saw the break in his team’s NHL schedule between

games in Calgary and Edmonton, he approached the Kelowna Rockets and Prospera Place about ice availability. The Rockets and Prospera Place partnered with the NHL club to help make the suggested visit become a reality. The Rockets, who start the first round of the WHL playoffs tonight against Everett Silvertips, watched the Red Wings practise and then held their own practise an hour

later. “When you get a chance to watch a group of the best players in the world practise it’s a neat experience,” said Rockets coach Ryan Huska. “Not only for our players but for the coaches as well. We try to see how NHL coaches run their practice and try to take some things from that.” Fans clamoured for autographs following the ice sessions while the media were given open

access to Detroit dressing rooms to speak with players and coaches. Olympic gold medal coach Mike Babcock not only played for the old Kelowna Wings but has also coached in Prospera as a WHL all-star coach. “This is a beautiful facility,” he said. “The Hamiltons have done a great job here, especially for four years when they had to hang on in the old barn (Memorial). I just ran past the old place to go over

and have a look and see just how small it actually was. Kelowna has become a really good hockey town.” Goalie Chris Osgood is one of many NHL players with homes in the Okanagan as he hosted some players at his place for a night. He said it was a great atmosphere that featured more Detroit fans than he expected. “It’s fun for us to practise in front of people like that,” he said. “It’s great to

▼ WHL PLAYOFFS

Rockets will face tough opening round against Silvertips The Kelowna Rockets couldn’t have found a much tougher opponent to begin what they hope is a successful Western Hockey League playoff run. The Rockets begin the WHL playoffs tonight (Friday) in Everett against a Silvertips hockey club that finished the season tied for first in the Western Conference but was slotted into third place in a tiebreaker.

‘We’re definitely up against a very good team,” said Rockets coach Ryan Huska,. “Since Christmas you’d have to consider Everett one of, if not the best teams in the league. We’re going to have a big challenge.” Making the challenge a little easier is the Rockets solid finish to the season and the team’s roster is the best it has been health-wise all season. The Rockets head into the ser-

ies having won six of their final eight games of the WHL season. ‘We are playing well and I think for the first time all year we’re as healthy as we’re going to be and that’s a big plus,” said Huska. That’s one of the bigger reasons we had a better ending to the season.” The series begins in Everett with games Friday and Saturday nights before the teams come back to Kelowna

for games three and four on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Rockets will go with Adam Brown in net to start the series while Kyle St. Denis (concussion) is the only player unable to play due to injury. Huska says he likes the way his team is shaping up heading into the playoffs. “In playoffs you need your guys

to believe in each other,” he said. “If they do believe anything can happen. To get out of the WHL this year, you’re going to have to do something very special because there is a lot of good teams.” The other WHL Western Conference playoff series will feature matchups of Vancouver vs. Kamloops, TriCity vs. Chilliwack and Spokane vs. Portland.

Buna leads SFU to another CIS title What a way to finish a four year basketball career at Simon Fraser University. Kelowna’s Robyn Buna was named CIS player of the year in women’s basketball at the CIS awards banquet last Thursday night. Then on the weekend the Kelowna hoopster helped the SFU Clan to a national championship including a 77-56 victory against the Windsor Lancers in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport title game played Sunday at Hamilton’s McMaster University. Buna was named tournament MVP and was also named to the tournament all star team. “It was the best way to finish my career,” said Buna, who opened the tournament on Friday with

a 27-point performance against host McMaster. “I think we were all playing a little tight. We were apprehensive, it’s the national final. But 10 years from now, I won’t think about whether or not we won but how hard we worked together to accomplish this goal.” A member of the Clan’s spectacular recruiting class of 200607, Buna ends her fouryear career at Simon Fraser with a first nomination to the first all-Canadian team, a year after earning a spot on the second CIS all-star squad. The 5-foot-11 forward led the Clan in scoring this season averaging 14.3 points per game— good for 12th in Canada West—and was the second most accurate three-point shooter in the

nation, connecting at a spectacular 48.8 per cent rate. She was also first on the team in minutes played (26 per game) and free throw percentage, her 84.0 per cent success rate from the charity stripe ranking sixth in the country. Thanks in large part to her stellar play, SFU was the highest-scoring team in the nation this year with 83.1 points per contest. “Robyn has grown every year, adding important skills to her repertoire,” said SFU head coach Bruce Langford. “She shoots the ball incredibly well, she can shoot in traffic and has improved her pull-up. She is a humble, brilliant young woman who is well deserving of this award.” A Canada West allstar each of the past three

seasons, the kinesiology major was at her best at the conference Final Four where she averaged 21.5 points, including a perfect outing in the title match when she scored 20 points on 7-for-7 shooting from the field and 4-for-4 at the free throw line in a 92-62 gold-medal rout of No. 4-ranked Regina. She became the fourth SFU recipient of the Nan Copp award since the Clan joined CIS in 200001. Former teammate Lani Gibbons was honoured two years ago, while Jessica Kaczowka received back-to-back MVP nods in 2001-02 and 2002-03. Buna is also the 13th straight player from the Canada West conference—including teams from the now defunct GPAC—to receive the distinction. A two-time CIS champion in her first three seasons and an Academic All-Canadian every year since she arrived at SFU, Buna also represented Canada at the 2009 Summer Universiade in Belgrade, Serbia.

University teams enjoying new success Support for Canadian athletes helped propel Canada to a record-breaking 14 gold medals at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Growing resources that support student athletes are also helping UBC Okanagan Heat teams generate remarkable success in regular season action, B.C. provincial championships and 2010 Canadian national titles. “We’re enjoying an amazing year of success for our varsity athletics program,” says Rob Johnson, the university’s director of athletics. On the weekend UBCO volleyball teams continued to have success. The Heat women claimed its second straight Canadian volleyball championship while the Heat men claimed bronze in the nationals. The Heat women’s basketball team went 16-2 during the regular season

and won the B.C. provincial title last weekend. And they’re hosting the CCAA Women’s Basketball National Championships at UBC Okanagan which began on Wednesday. The Heat men’s basketball team finished league play in third place with a record of 14-4 and captured a bronze medal in the B.C. championship last weekend. “We know the success of our teams is a function of the incredible commitment and hard work of our student athletes and coaches,” says Johnson. “But it cannot be overstated that our ability to attract and retain such highlevel student athletes is a direct result of the many ways we’re able to support students, including scholarships made possible through the Athletic Scholarship Endowment.” Over the past four years, the Valley First/

UBC Okanagan Athletics Scholarship Breakfast—which will be held on April 9 this year—has raised more than 25 per cent of its $1-million goal for the endowment fund. The fund is used to help attract and retain the exceptional student athletes so important to highlevel varsity athletics programs. This year, the breakfast brings the 2010 Olympic Winter Games experience even closer to home and offers a glimpse into the lives of Olympic and student athletes. Featured speakers include world champion para-alpine skier Josh Dueck, who will compete this weekend at the Paralympic Winter Games, and ski-cross sensation Kelsey Serwa of Kelowna, who finished just out of the medals in 5th place at the Winter Olympics in February. “These Olympians inspire us, and we are

thrilled that they will be joining us for the Athletics Scholarship Breakfast in April,” says Steve Manuel, head coach of the UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyball team and chair of this year’s fundraiser. “Watching them reach the highest level of competition at the Olympics and Paralympics reminds us how important it is to support athletes— it allows them to focus on achieving their best.” Dueck and Serwa will participate in a panel discussion guided by former Okanagan sportscaster Pat Kennedy, director of the Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. UBC Okanagan student-athletes Dustin Luck, captain of UBC Okanagan’s varsity soccer team, and world-class Nordic skier Cam Egan, will bring a UBC Okanagan student athlete per-

spective. Buying tickets for seats or an entire table at the breakfast is one of the most effective ways for businesses and individuals to support UBC Okanagan athletes, as the university provides a matching gift for every ticket and table purchased, says Manuel, who was named the Canadian Collegiate Athletics Association’s National Coach of the Year Across All Sports in 2009. “Our Athletics Scholarship Endowment will provide the financial assistance needed to continue building on great successes—by supporting our outstanding student athletes,” says Manuel. The 2010 Valley First UBC Okanagan Athletics Scholarship Breakfast will take place on Friday, April 9, at the Coast Capri Hotel Ballroom. Tickets are $1,000 per table or $100 per ticket and can be purchased online. FINALIST “Best

It’s the first time All Star Wrestling is in the Kelowna market in 2010 and it’s coming in a big way with five big matches and 14 wrestlers on the show. “All Star Wrestling brings quality wrestling entertainment to your community at an economical price,” said promoter Mark Vellios. “Our ticket prices have remained the same for three years now and there are no plans to raise

them. “We understand how hard it is for a family in this economy to afford live entertainment. “Ringside seating is $15 and General Admission tickets are only $12. Students and Seniors are only $10.” Vellios says All Star Wrestling provides fan friendly, family shows. ASW Wrestlers will be available before, during and after the event for autographs and pictures with the fans. Plus there will be souvenirs available of most of our stars at a reasonable price. “This is wrestling like in old territory days of the

‘80s when both All Star Wrestling and Stampede Wrestling use to come to town. We bring old school wrestling to new school fans,” Vellios said.

ENTERTAINMENT Arts show aims for more community involvement Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If the organizers of this winter’s Conduit Festival were looking to be a “conduit for change” within the community, they’ve succeeded. This year, UBCO’s annual Fine Arts Graduation Exhibition will be an exceedingly different experience thanks to the efforts of the Conduit’s event organizers who raised the bar for local art events in the students’ view. And now they want to replicate the model for their own exhibition. “It’s usually friends and family, wine and cheese, but this year we’re trying to get the community involved,” explained Cory Dixon, co-president of UBCO visual arts course union. The Conduit Festival was held the same night as the university’s Art on the Line event in early February. Art on the Line raises money for the student artists’ end-of-year show. At first it seemed the double bill might spell double trouble, but when the students got down to the Conduit Festival, which ran for several hours longer in the Rotary Arts Cen-

tre, they discovered a whole different arts community was out in force in the downtown core. They decided the two scenes needed a place to merge. Enter the new and improved Fine Arts Graduation Exhibition. Dixon was one of the organizers of last summer’s Riot on the Rooftop party at the Vernon Public Art Gallery and said this show will draw heavily on his experiences with that event as well. They’ve thrown in a whole mix of music, similar to the rooftop party, and spanning everything from local jazz musician Anna Jacyszyn to Vernon’s alternative sensation, Poor Little Rich Girl. The visual artists have also joined forces with some of the poets on campus who will be performing throughout the show. The entire event is free, though donations will be accepted. Wine and cheese and appies remain on the agenda, but it’s really about seeing some sensational art. “We want to put on the best show,” said Dixon. “So the prime focus is definitely going to be the art.” jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Repo Men may not quite be a sci-fi classic MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis

epo Men is not a sequel to Repo Man, the 1984 cult classic starring Emilio Estevez. It is a futuristic thriller about artificial organs that humans can have transplanted to prolong their lives. However, the organs come from a mega-giant corporation which will repossess the organs if the recipient cannot make his or her payments. Enter Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker). They are highly skilled repo men who take back the organs with no care for human comfort or survival. After having a heart attack on the job, Remy receives a state-of-the-art substitute but is unable to keep up with the payments. His former partner Jake is sent to repossess the heart and Remy must find a way to escape and

survive. Repo Men, which also stars the ever-entertaining Liev Schreiber (Defiance, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), may not become a classic, fans of movies like Logan’s Run and Minority Report may want to have a look. In The Bounty Hunter, Milo (Gerard Butler) is a down-on-hisluck bounty hunter who gets his dream job when he is assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife, reporter Nicole (Jennifer Aniston). He thinks all that’s ahead is an easy payday, but when Nicole gives him the slip so she can chase a lead on a murder cover-up, Milo realizes that nothing ever goes simply with him and Nicole. The exes continually one-up each other until they find themselves on the run for their lives. They thought their promise to love, honour and obey was tough but staying alive is going to be a whole lot tougher. The Bounty Hunter is directed by Andy Tenant, who is best known for Hitch, but also directed Aniston’s former “Friend” Matthew Perry in Fool’s Rush In.

Pushing the risk way too far

I

t’s certainly a phrase that can be applied to a group of snowmobilers near Revelstoke on Saturday, as they powered straight up the side of Boulder Mountain on their machines, endangering the lives of hundreds of people, in pursuit of nothing more than bragging rights. Two men were high marking—trying to leave the highest trail on the mountainside— when they brought the whole thing down on top of a large

group of spectators, who thought they were standing a safe distance away. They weren’t. Bodies and machines were pushed down the hill by a massive wall of snow that victims described as feeling like concrete. With rescuers miles away, survivors scrambled to dig each other out, managing to save all but two 33-year-old Alberta men. The high-marking event, called Big Iron Shootout, was

unsanctioned but still managed to draw more than 200 snowmobilers. Many of them brought along children as young as seven years old into an area that was under an avalanche warning. No doubt those two riders who triggered the slide are beating themselves up over the tragedy and, one can only hope the parents of the young children caught up in the disaster are doing a little soul searching as well. But rather than wonder about what might have been, perhaps

time would be better spent finding ways to prevent similar future tragedies. Currently, no licence is required to operate a snowmobile in B.C. And while many operators say they are trained and take numerous precautions when they’re out in the back country, including wearing locator beacons, last Saturday’s tragedy just goes to show that it only takes one or two careless fools to put a whole lot of people in danger.

‘Falconization’ of British Columbia’s health care system

O

pposition critics frequently accuse Premier Gordon Campbell of seizing on one big issue after another, then dropping them and moving on. This is suggested about climate change, aboriginal reconciliation, and of course health care, the subject of Campbell’s 2006 tour of mixed private and public models in Europe and Scandinavia. Health Minister Kevin Falcon has now taken flight to show that the health care project is very much alive.

He began last week by speculating about B.C. facilities becoming “the Mayo Clinic of the North,” offering surgical services to foreign paTom tients on evenings Fletcher and weekends. This idea first got traction last summer, when Campbell pitched Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall on the idea of sending prairie patients to Vancouver to use new specialty hip and knee replacement units. Saskatchewan eventually balked at the idea of paying a premium for

faster service, and now Falcon cites the thousands of U.S. patients who shop the world for health care. B.C.’s private clinic heavyweights, Dr. Brian Day of Cambie Surgery Centre and Dr. Mark Godley of False Creek Surgery Centre, are naturally enthusiastic. This suggests that private surgery providers expect a bigger role in specialized units like the joint replacement project at UBC and Richmond hospitals. There are few details on this so far. But Falcon has also moved on a more urgent front, announcing a shake-up of the B.C. Ambulance Service as its imposed contract with para-

medics is set to run out at the end of March. The ambulance service is being transferred to the Provincial Health Services Authority, which runs B.C. Children’s Hospital and other province-wide services. It sounds like a bureaucratic shuffle, but Falcon makes it clear the long and futile battle with the paramedics’ union is leading to big changes. “There’s a possibility that we can expand the role of firefighters (in paramedic service), there are options to use private services where that makes sense sometimes in small communities, so all those options will be available to us,” he said. Falcon also confirmed that the

move is designed to expand an experiment in the Kootenays, so small towns can maintain ambulance service by employing part-time paramedics at a local care home so they can make a living. The plight of rural paramedics on call for $2 an hour was the rallying cry of NDP politicians before last year’s long and bitter strike. But rural B.C. was soon neglected by the paramedics’ union, which demanded huge wage hikes for city paramedics as the recession hit, pulled illegal strike actions, defaced ambulances and finally tried to disrupt the See Fletcher A29

SUNDOWNR SAUSAGE

▼ SPECIAL INTERESTS

Referendums only way to control politicians To the editor: The purpose of the Local Government Elections Task Force is to recommend changes that would improve the fairness, accountability and transparency of the election process at the local government level. While that makes a lot of sense, it also prompts a couple of questions. Why no input from the general public, and why does the task force not have a mandate to address the bigger issue of a progressively lower voter turnout at elections? Is it because low voter turnout favours the incumbents, and getting re-elected is a higher priority than voter turn-out? If the forums were open to the general public, the task force members would quickly find out why voters no longer are motivated to go to the polls. Politicians and candidates failed to convince the voters that they have any intention of bringing resolution to the many issues facing our communities today and as a result, elected to stay at home?

After having attended countless public meetings voters have found that their concerns and objections constantly have been overruled, have they just given up? They have been left with the impression that city halls are only interested in input from big developers, high priced civil servants and specialists. In a nutshell, voters have been convinced they have been shut out of the democratic process. As a voter, weather, proximity to the polls and holidays has never been a concern. It’s also doubtful that mailin and e-voting would make any difference, as they do not address the real issues, and will not likely motivate more people to vote. Should mail-in ballots be considered, all eligible voters should have one, not just nonresidents. The biggest concern with mail-in ballots is security—how do we make sure that the ballots are not ‘sold’ to special interests? Allowing e-voting is not practical, as only half of all eli-

gible voters have access to the internet. Another issue is donations and sponsorships. Corporate and group donations should be banned, and individual donations should be limited. The last thing we need is the opportunity for corporations and special interests to be able to “buy” an election. While these and other issues are playing on the voter’s minds, we should not get our hopes up too high. While democratic societies use referendum ballots to decide major issues, our premier has developed a new political tool to circumvent the democratic process. It’s called the Alternative Approval Process (APP). The APP is somewhat like a Negative Billing Option, in other words if you don’t contest a political decision, you are accepting it. They might as well say sue us if you don’t like it. The purpose of the review of the municipal election process could just as easily be another step in the process to fur-

ther undermine the democratic process. Politicians were elected to serve and to protect, but they have abandoned us and have instead teamed up with developers and special interests, so now growth is out of control. The costs have been severe. Helter-skelter development, increase in noise, traffic, pollution and crime, and loss of quality of life, and skyrocketing taxes. To put an end to this ongoing deterioration of our cities, there is only one tool left that will allow us to do that effectively—the referendum ballot. Politicians hate referendums with a passion, insisting they are nothing but opinion polls, when in fact they are the final and binding vote on any issue. In reality, it strips them of power they never had in the first place, and put it exactly where it belongs—in the hands of the people. Andy Thomsen, Summerland

Unsafe driving finger shouldn’t be pointed at elderly drivers

Ode to CD-21

To the editor: Again on tonight’s early news, I heard the words about getting rid of drivers over 65, who are blamed for causing all the problems on our roads. Those speaking tonight think that they know exactly all there is to know and that every accident can be blamed on the elderly drivers. I am one of these with a clear record of not one ticket or one accident in over 30 years of driving in this province. I presently have to vis-

it Kelowna Hospital where my wife is confined, and I drive that bridge every day to visit her. The sign on the bridge reads 60 km/h, but I defy anyone to try to drive at that posted speed, as you are looked on as an idiot, passed by every car, and even at times honked at for driving at the posted speed. So, why post signs because obviously today’s education does not teach them to read. Or, am I wrong in obeying the speed limit?

Must I confess that I am not only old, but blind as well. How about the driving records of these young drivers? I feel that ability and sense as is shown by a person’s driving record along with being “able to read” a posted 60 km/h sign will go a long way to making our roads safer to drive. I’d prefer that to blaming all our troubles on the elderly drivers, some of whom are the best drivers on the road. Ron Barnard, Westbank

Fletcher from A28 Olympics. Last week, the government rejected the union’s latest erratic demand, to extend the existing contract terms to set up two more years of senseless fighting. I’ve written previously about the inflation of city paramedic overtime, which shows how much this union really cares about the cash-starved rural areas.

It is the worst performance by a B.C. government union so far this century, and its conflict-addicted leadership is about to pay the price in contracting out and its own eventual break-up. Labour Minister Murray Coell has until the end of the month to determine the details of this new structure, and how it will affect bargaining. Judging by the latest seething of the union leadership, there is no

chance of co-operation here, and another contract may have to be imposed while the mess is untangled. The growth and greying of B.C.’s population are upon us, and old government monopoly service delivery models are not going to be able to handle it.

Cannan from A30 Standing Committee for Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and Status of Persons with Disabilities. It was welcome news then to receive an e-mail last week from the Council of Canadians with Disabilities (CCD) which said, “Joy and celebration are the two primary emotions felt today by many Canadians with disabilities as the government of Canada ratifies the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) at the United Nations. Just as the Paralympics represents a global

effort to make the Olympic Games inclusive, ratification of the CRPD represents a global movement of people with disabilities and their governments who are committed to improving the lives of the disabled. For the CCD and disabled citizens across the country, the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was the realization of a dream of a more inclusive and accessible Canada built upon Canadian values of equality, non-discrimination and the duty to accommodate. The Council for Canadians with Disabilities made a particular point

of recognizing the efforts of cabinet minister Peter MacKay in leading the way forward to ratification noting that he continues to demonstrate leadership on this file. CCD also recognized cabinet minister Diane Finley, through her department of Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and Status of Persons with Disabilities, for her support to the disability community in reaching this historic goal. Finley is also responsible for the Enabling Accessibility Fund, which in the recent federal budget was extended and received an additional $45 million over three years.

But it was a comment by Steve Estey, chair of CCD’s International Committee, that struck me the most. He said, “Today’s ratification by the government of Canada signals the end of an era where people with disabilities were seen as objects of charity and passive recipients of rehabilitation and state-supported largesse. “Today ushers in a new era where people with disabilities are viewed as full citizens with exactly the same rights and responsibilities as other citizens of Canada.� The CRPD will require the federal gov-

ernment to act and monitor progress in achieving the commitments of the treaty requiring diligence in removing barriers that prohibit the full and equal participation of Canadians with disabilities. By pledging to be governed by the CRPD, Ottawa recognizes the necessity to address the exclusion and lack of access people with disabilities have encountered in Canada, Here in our community, it will give a moral boost to all of those who are disabled and all those, caregivers, volunteers, advocacy groups and community organizations like the folks on our Central

Okanagan Access Awareness Team who work to raise awareness and remove the barriers for all those who live and work in our community. As I watch our paralympians striving for gold

Award-winning Genesis offers luxury car buyers good value Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

I know, first hand, just how far Hyundai has come in a couple of decades. When my wife and I began dating, she drove an 1986 Pony. It was some kind of “sport” model, complete with leaky sunroof and cracked plastic louvres in rear that rattled in the wind. It wasn’t new at the time, but by year five, the Pony was ready for the glue factory. It was burning a quart of oil every three weeks, two of four doors opened and only three windows worked. The rust spots - like pimples on a teenage fry cook - were the icing on the cake. I wore a ball cap and sunglasses every time I got behind the wheel. Fast forward nearly two decades and I’m sitting in a Hyundai that has been benchmarked against the $56,000-plus BMW 5-Series and MercedesBenz E-Class sedans. Who’d a thunk it? I first drove the Gen-

esis sedan in June 2008. I wasn’t entirely surprised by its upscale look and feel, as the former flagship Azera sedan and Veracruz crossover had paved the way in terms of build quality and styling. What did surprise me was how much the Genesis - in its first model year - impressed auto journalists and other industry experts. It was awarded the 2009 North American Car of The Year, and rated Most Appealing Midsize Premium Car in the U.S. by J.D. Power and Associates. The Genesis also took top honours from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), winning Canadian Car of the Year and Best New Luxury Car Under $50,000. From the front, Genesis makes a bold statement with its large trapezoidal chrome grille and swept-back, projectorstyle headlamps. 17- or 18-inch alloys nicely fill the large wheel openings which, with its wide track, give the sedan a firmly-

planted look. That aside, I wouldn’t say the Genesis is striking, but with its clean lines and subtle styling cues, it certainly looks refined. As Hyundai’s first serious entry to the luxury segment, this car doesn’t look out of place among any of its German, Japanese or domestic rivals. The base unit—the 3.8—is powered by a 3.8litre V6 and comes well equipped at a starting price of $38,999. The list of standard features is long and includes premium leather seating (heated in front, with 8-way/4-way power adjust for driver/passenger); memory for the driver’s seat, steering column and mirrors; dualzone automatic climate control; automatic windshield defogger with humidity sensor; AM/FM/ XM/6-disc CD Changer/ MP3 with seven speakers; USB port, aux. plug with iPod control; Bluetooth; proximity key with pushbutton start; rain-sensing wipers (with heated park); steering wheel audio and

THE 2010 HYUNDAI GENESIS sedan is available with either a 3.8-litre V6 or 4.6-litre V8 engine.

take this big sedan from zero to 96 km/h in 5.7 seconds. Back in ‘08, I had only a couple of hours in the Genesis 4.6, but was impressed with its takeoff and passing power. This time around, in the 3.8, I had less oomph, but was in no way disappointed. Firstly, this 24-valve, DOHC with dual continuously variable valve timing is no slouch. It puts out a respectable 290 hp and 264 lb/ft of torque, and despite the car’s heft (approximately 1,800 kg), it provides good launch and a nimble ride. The 3.8-litre V6 is mated to a smooth-shifting Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission with tlock-up torque converter and tall overdrive (sixth) gear for quiet, fuel efficient highway driving. It can also be shifted manually by moving the gear selector into a separate gate and tapping it forward or back. I was just as happy not to have paddle shifters cluttering the steering column, and for this type of car, I don’t see the Shiftronic getting much use either. Suspension is an independent five-link front and rear, which is on par, or better than many at and above its class. Ride is forgiving, but not mushy, and with the car’s rear-drive architecture enhanced by a 52/48 front-to-rear weight distribution, the Genesis has an agile feel for such a big sedan. Whether on the highway or in rush hour traffic, the cabin is hushed—just 63.2 decibels according to Hyundai. Contributing to this is special glass in the windshield and front sides that uses acoustic vinyl, sandwiched between two layers of glass. Also contributing to the quietness is extremely tight bodywork and narrow panel-gaps, resulting in less wind noise.

Interior room is abundant, both front and back, and although the rear seats

Acura TL has a grip on high-performance motoring Jim Robinson What’s in a name? The Acura brand debuted in North America in 1986 as the “second channel” or luxury/performance brand from Honda. It was a masterstroke. Suddenly the little solid and stolid Civic that people had come to love as youngsters was offering Honda reliability with

luxury to the same people who were starting to make their way in life. It wasn’t long before Toyota with Lexus and Nissan with Infiniti jumped in hoping to cash in on the success of Acura. With the Legend sedan and Integra sporty coupe, Acura hit the ground running and people were fighting to get their hands on an Acura. And then something

funny happened. Even though Acura had huge equity in the Legend and Integra, the Legend somehow became the larger 3.5RL and the Legend name was abandoned. To fill the slot left by the Legend, there was briefly the Vigor but that was dropped as Acura went alphanumeric across the board with the 3.2 TL and (if memory serves) 2.7 TL. A former Honda/ Acura executive once told me that this was done so that when people asked an owner what kind of model he/she was driving, instead of spouting numbers and letters, with simpler to say “Acura” which also served to tout the brand name like saying Audi or Mercedes. Today the numbers and names are gone but the letters remain with today’s Acura model lineup denoted as RDX, MDX, RL, CSX and the TL as tested here.

▼ ACURA

TL offers superb handling in the corners Acura from B4 bine for faster combustion thus more torque. As speed levels off, the valves lift higher resulting in a longer opening for the air/ fuel mix meaning a greater charge in the chamber for more power. But leading-edge engine mapping makes sure the right amount of fuel is available for reasonable gas mileage, in this case 12.3/8.1L/100 km city/ highway with the standard five-speed automatic or 11.9/8.0L/100 km city/ highway in the six-speed manual transmission option that is available for the first time on the TL. Although it was available on other Acura models, the SH-AWD system in the TL is the most agfgressive and responsive. From launch, the system can direct up to 60 per cent of torque to the rear wheels, but in normal driving, grip is neutral. Accelerate and traction goes to the rear as rneeded. Slow and traction goes partially to front as needed for better handling. So far this is fairly typical of AWD systems. But where SH-AWD comes into its own is in cornering where up to 100 per cent of torque (depending on speed) goes to the outside back wheel as it rotates faster than the inside wheel. Not only do the rear tires remain stable but the front tires are able to carve through the corner with less sideslip. An example of wheree you find this happening is on a highway on ramp. As you transit through the bend, the car feels incredibly stable. Give it the gas and it still feels like it is on rails instead of trying to “push” to the outside of the curve. Cruising down the highway there is also a feeling of solidity along with almost no outside noise or vibration coming into the cabin.

I advise anyone thinking of buying this car to take it on a twisty road you know and experience it for yourself. While you might think the “Technology” part of this car’s name is about the SW-AWD system, it’s actually a trim package available on both TL models and includes a nav/infotainment system with, get this, trilingual voice recognition that understands up to 800 verbal commands. Part of this is the 440watt surround sound audio that will play any kind of USB/CD/MP3/satellite you’ve got. But it also has a very large centre-dash mounted monitor with backup camera with graded lines. As long as you stay between the lines, you won’t bump into anything. Amazing! With a list price of $48,490, and an as tested price of $50,794, there isn’t too much more you’ll need unless you want to indulge in a list of options like super bright chrome 19-inch wheels or full nose mask for our Canadian winters. Considered a midsize car, the TL as tested is bigger inside and out than some domestic fullsize cars I can think of and it is also priced about the same as one or two I can think of. While the name may have changed, the spirit and quality that made Acura a synonym for quality is still very much there. And with its combination of responsive engine and superior handling, the 2010 Acura TL with SHAWD is a very formidable piece of performance sedan.

Honda changes up its line-up of cruising motorcycles for 2010 Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

A twist of the grip, a bla-a-t of engine, and I am off, flitting past palmettos with sunshine stabbing through the draping Spanish moss that beards the trees. And it is hard to believe that it’s been almost six months since I last slipped into the saddle. There are no bad reasons for escaping the last cold Canadian doldrums of winter, but on March 8, Honda Canada provided motorcycle journalists with about a dozen very good reasons to jumpstart spring with the southern launch of an invigorated 2010 motorcycle lineup. Actually, according to Honda, that number of reasons is closer to 16, when you tally up the brand new or substantially changed models for the 2010 season. It’s been a rough year for the motorcycle biz, impacted by the same acrossthe-board recessionary damage common to all industries. The steady progression of yearly sales increases was chopped at the knees in 2009 with a sharp decline that slammed sales numbers back to

2001 averages. And Honda admits that their decline has been steeper than the industry average, citing their Powerhouse dealer changeovers, a sportbike stable that has been too limited in scope and a cruiser lineup that has grown a little long in the tooth. Which explains why they have made such an aggressive shift of product, working to build one of the youngest lineups in the business. A good part of Honda’s effort has been focused on revitalizing the 1300cc cruiser lineup. Although, I have to admit, the old VTX1300 was always a favourite of mine. Its single-pin crankshaft V-Twin rumbled with that classic “potatopotato” burble and, while it didn’t have the chuffing, train-like overkill of its bigger brother VTX1800. It had more than enough moxie to get up to speed, benefiting from its somewhat nimbler weight and dimensions, and easier to afford with its simple carbureted engine setup. The lineup evolved over the years but most changes only touched on style, not substance.

The brand new VT1300 lineup for 2010 holds onto the good mechanical bits—same 1312 cc engine, same brakes and transmission - but adds modern fuel injection, a stretched wheelbase, lowered seat heights and a radical shift in design. The VT1300 lineup comes in a four-model selection that includes the Fury, Sabre, Stateline and Interstate. The first salvo of the lineup, the 2010 Fury, rocked the cycle world when it debuted to rave reviews last year as an unexpected “factory custom” with garish design lines and in-your-face chopper attitude. It’s tempting to think that the success of the Fury spurred the design of its stable mates but they were actually always part of the plan, sharing the common custom-styled shape and layout, but debuting later. The Sabre, the new entry to the lineup keeps the minimalist fenders and big 21-inch front wheel but downplays the other extremes of the Fury with a stylized curve to a shorter frame downtube and handlebars that are lowered to an easier reach. By pulling the seat,

Flick back and forth between pictures of the Fury and Sabre and you will notice that evolution of style to a less esoteric, still dramatic but more

functional form. This was probably my favourite of the four, a nice combination of street presence and usability. Not that there’s that much difference between them. All four models handle well; turn in nicely, albeit with a longer wheelbase and turning circle and they all blast forth with a nicely modulated exhaust note that is just sharp and aggressive enough to en-

The Stateline shifts the design a little further to the right with a retro focus, featuring a more solid profile, chubbier tires and blockier fenders mounted in back with a vertical, VTX-style taillight. The Interstate model is really just a touring version of the Stateline, adding a windshield, floorboards, fork covers,

heel-toe shifter and leather-wrapped hard saddlebags with hidden latches. Honda boasts this as a “Cross the country’ bike but the stylish seat might still be a little too firm and hard-edged for some. As part of Honda Canada’s emphasis on gradually applying the ABS linked-brake sysSee Honda B7

capital news B7

▼ MOTORCYCLES

New models introduced for those who roll on two wheels Honda from B6 tem to all products, they are only importing ABS versions of the Sabre and Stateline. ABS is an option with the Fury but is strangely not available with the Interstate touring package (a hangover of American hard-headedness). And, touching briefly on the 750 cc segment that recently updated the Aero (classic-style) and Spirit (custom chopper-style) motorcycles, Honda has introduced two new models that should create a stir

in this entry-level class. The new VT750C Phantom captures the classic “bobber” look in trendy blacked-out style, contrasting its dark monochrome tone with the minimum of brushed aluminum highlights. This is motorcycling in its most basic form, raw and uncluttered, but with enough fuel-injected torque from its 745 cc Vtwin engine. And, sure to be a hit with the retro crowd, the 2010 Honda Shadow RS, more of a standard bike than a laid-back cruiser

really, also available only in a dark monotone shade of Heavy Grey Metallic, adding classic chrome details, from gleaming spoke wheels to handsome, throw-back twin mufflers. You can play “guess the influences” from Triumph Bonneville to Harley-Davidson Sportster. Quite a list of new or modified cruisers from Honda’s street bike stable with more changes yet to come. And we haven’t even covered the sportbike additions to Honda’s lineup for 2010.

THE NEW 2010 VT1300CT Interstate touring cruiser with added windshield, floorboards, fork covers, heel-toe shifter and leatherwrapped, hard saddlebags with hidden latches. CONTRIBUTED

VALLEY MITSUBISHI… Where we have something for everyone!

t

THE ASTON MARTIN RAPIDE (above) and the Cadillac Converj were named Best Production and Best Concept category winners respectively at the Car Design of theYear Awards that followed the recent Geneva Motor Show.

Aston Martin, Cadillac receive design awards. Car designers around the world voted the Aston Martin Rapide and the Cadillac Converj as their favourite designs for 2009, and their creators received awards during the recent Geneva Motor Show. The two cars won Best Production and Best Concept categories respectively of the Car Design of the Year Awards. The awards result from a poll of the readers of Car Design News, the leading global online resource for the professional design community. The Rapide’s elegant, sporting proportions are combined with emotional surfaces and exquisite detailing, and it narrowly edged out the Ferrari 458 Italia to first place in the production category. Of the ten cars on the shortlist, the Porsche Panamera was the least favourite among the designers who voted. The Cadillac Converj concept was by GM’s Advanced Design Studio in Europe under then Design Director Simon Cox. The Converj concept introduced a cab-forward stance and softened Cadillac’s now iconic angular design aesthetic, while the interior featured environmentally sustainable and renewable materials. Voting was again close, and the Converj had a narrow lead over the Infiniti Essence concept. Least favoured from the 10-car shortlist was the Citroen Revolte.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the prototype of a battery-powered van based on the MercedesBenz Vito at a recent EU Competitiveness Council meeting held in Spain. Assembly of the electric-powered Vito is being integrated directly into standard production and marks the start of a new era in local, zero emission mobility in the van sector. The Vito will incorporate the technology ex factory, thereby underlining Daimler AG’s commitment to sustainable mobility. The vehicle is the outcome of research and development activities at Daimler AG which are focused on three aspects: optimizing combustion engines, boosting efficiency via custom hybrid components and emission-free vehicle operation deploying batteries and fuel cells. During 2010, more than 100 Mercedes-Benz Vito vans will be delivered to 20 customers, primarily fleet operators and public institutions wishing to transport items in

environmentally sensitive zones with zero emissions, including no CO2 emissions, and low noise. Deployment scenarios therefore typically involve short distances and making many stops in urban areas. Production of a further 2000 vehicles is planned in the next phase. The drive configuration is designed solely to run on battery power and thus dispenses with the powertrain intended for combustion engines. When it comes to safety features, every aspect is covered. All Vito vehicles come with ESP as standard which incorporates ABS and ASR. The number and type of airbags also corresponds with the current Vito specification. Vehicles are subjected to the usual crash tests with regard to passive safety. There is no loss in terms of payload or load volume compared to a conventionally powered Vito and load capacity remains competitive.

Ultra-fast, ultra-efficient plug-in Porsche supercar Combining Porsche’s Intelligent Performance philosophy, motorsportinspired high-tech and an immediately arresting design, the 918 Spyder prototype joins the new Cayenne S Hybrid and the 911 GT3 R Hybrid racing car in reinforcing the company’s position as a genuine pioneer in hybrid technology. The 918 Spyder combines high-tech racing features and electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: fuel consumption of just 3.0L/100 km and C02 emissions of just 70 g/km, with the performance of a supercar. Acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h takes just 3.2 seconds, top speed is more than 320 km/h and a lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife takes less than 7 minutes

and 30 seconds - faster even than Porsche’s last road-going supercar, the Carrera GT. Using plug-in hybrid technology, the two-seat 918 Spyder is powered by a high-revving V8 that develops more than 500 hp as well as electric motors on the front and rear axle with a total mechanical output of 218 hp. The 9,200-rpm engine is a development of the highly successful 3.4-litre power unit from the RS Spyder racing car and is positioned in front of the rear axle, giving the car the ultimate balance for supreme performance on the racetrack. Power is transmitted to the wheels by a seven-speed PorscheDoppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) gearbox, which See Porsche B11

Return to Le Mans 50 years after first appearance in legendary race Corvette Racing’s second-generation C6.R will be powered by a new 5.5-litre productionbased V-8, to compete in the new unified GT class in the 2010 American Le Mans Series as well as the GT2 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The updated C6.R and the Corvette ZR1 on which it’s based represent the strongest link yet between a production Corvette and the modern Corvette Racing team. Both cars are well equipped to compete on and off the track with showroom competitors including Aston Martins,

r

BMWs, Porsches and Ferraris. Corvette has a long history of productionbased endurance racing, making its first appearance at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1956, and its first appearance at Le Mans in 1960. Then Corvette chief engineer Zora ArkusDuntov leveraged the racing program to improve the production Corvette, as evidenced by the development of heavy-duty and high-performance components and the introduction of the race-bred Z06 option on the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray.

The transfer of technology between racing and production cars resumed with the start of the modern Corvette Racing program in 1999. More than a decade later, it’s impossible to imagine one team without the other, according to Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer: “Simply put, without Corvette Racing, there would not be a Corvette Z06, much less the ZR1. And, without the foundation of the Corvette C6, Z06 and ZR1, the Corvette Racing team would not be the dominant presence in production-based racing.”

Electric Porsche prototype also feeds the power of the electric drive system to the rear axle. Electricity also drives the front wheels through a fixed transmission ratio. A button on the steering wheel allows the driver to choose among four different running modes. E-Drive mode runs the car under electric power alone, with a range r of up to 25 km. In Hybrid t mode, the 918 Spyder uses both the electric motors and the combustion engine to offer the drivt er a wide range of characteristics, from particularly fuel-efficient to extrapowerful. Sport Hybrid mode uses both drive systems, but with the focus on performance: most of the drive power goes to the t rear wheels, with torque vectoring to additionally improve the car’s driving r dynamics. t Finally, Race Hybrid mode focuses on pure performance, running both the gasoline and electric power sources to their limits of power and dynamic output. With the battery sufficiently charged, a push-to-pass button feeds in additional electrical power, for overtaking.

RS 5 Coupe debuts at Geneva Auto Show

r

Thirty years after the original Audi quattro, the new Audi RS 5 Coupe had done it proud with a combination of high-revving V8 power, super fast S tronic twin-clutch gear shifting and a new evolution of the world famous all-wheel-drive system featuring the latest differential technology. Following its debut at the 2010 Geneva Show, the extreme RS reinterpretation of the elegant A5 two-door is expected to go on sale in Europe later this year. Developed by Audi high performance enginteering and styling subsidirary quattro GmbH, the RS 5 is the latest in an illustrious lineage dating back over 15 years to the RS 2 Avant. It features the V10 FSI engine that provides the technological basis for the new hand-built, high-revving 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine that spins freely and charismatically to 8,250 rpm, and delivers its 440 hp peak output at this high point. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and to an electronically governed 155 mph top speed.

Specially reinforced for its latest role, the remarkable seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission makes its RS debut in the RS 5, and with its high gearing also helps to minimize fuel usage. The seven-speed S tronic can operate in fully automatic mode or the driver can shift via the innovative selector lever or shift paddles on the steering wheel. By means of the standard Audi drive select, the driver can switch in automatic mode between three different options: auto, comfort, and dynamic. In the launch control mode, the seven-speed S tronic ensures flawless acceleration from a standstill at full power and with minimal losses in traction. The latest generation version of the Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) system as used by the RS 6 also contributes to the exceptional handling capabilities exhibited by the RS 5. Via the Audi drive select system, the driver will be able to choose from three damper settings (comfort, dynamic and sport) according to preference and conditions.

THE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW saw the debut of the 440 hp Audi RS 5 Coupe loaded with Audi’s leading edge engineering and road holding technology. CONTRIBUTED

FOR UP TO

Lexus M35: The driver’s hybrid Innovative electric technology and an undiluted driving experience come together in Infiniti’s first hybrid. The low CO2 champion of the all-new M Line sedan range, the Infiniti M35 Hybrid steers the hybrid advantage from the city to the open road and into the arms of all those who love their driving. A decoupling V6 engine, 65 hp electric motor built in to the seven-speed automatic transmission and exceptionally fast charge/discharge response from the lithium-ion battery pack all add up to a hybrid that’s electrically powered for more of the time, and at higher speeds, than conventional hybrids. The M35 Hybrid’s high degree of electric intervention results in the fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions of a smaller, less powerful car while offering the linear acceleration and unsullied rear-drive handling of a true Infiniti complete with all the charisma and potency of one of the great V6 gasoline engines. The M35 Hybrid uses a front-engine, rear-driveonly layout based around an innovative drivetrain featuring a one motor/two clutch system. Innovatively, the first clutch is installed between the naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 and the electric motor. This clutch allows the full decoupling of the V6 when in both electric and power regeneration modes—in order to reduce mechanical drag and boost the efficiency of the electric motor.

THE NEW Lexus CT 200h premium compact hybrid will be on display for the first time in North America at the 2010 NewYork International Auto Show, on from March 31 to April 11.

▼ NEW YORK AUTO SHOW

All-new Lexus CT 200h compact hybrid makes North American Debut The all-new Lexus CT 200h premium compact hybrid will be on display for the first time in North America at the 2010 New York International Auto Show, on from March 31 to April 11. The sporty and versatile fivedoor will be Lexus’ second dedicated hybrid and fifth hybrid vehicle in the Canadian line-up. The Lexus CT 200h evolved from the LF-Ch concept unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and also shown at the 2010 Canadian International Auto Show, and was styled with optimum aerodynamic efficiency.

Its size, packaging and hybrid technology meet the requirements of the discerning, environmentally conscientious consumer in the emerging premium compact market. It offers no compromise on the quality, refinement and driving pleasure which hallmark the progressive luxury inherent in every Lexus. The CT 200h features a 1.8litre gas engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), a high performance battery, power control unit, transmission with an electric motor generator, a power

split device to re-allocate power from the engine and electric motor generator according to operational requirements. Four drive modes enhance the capabilities of the CT 200h’s Lexus Hybrid Drive technology and change the rate of throttle opening for a given throttle-pedal angle. EV mode allows for ultra-quiet running on electric motor power alone. Normal mode has an essentially linear throttle response while Eco mode reduces throttle response relative to the pedal angle and adjusts air conditioning settings to emphasize fuel economy.

Drowsy Drivers – Avoid being sleepy behind the wheel KATE WELLS During the week after the switch to Daylight Savings Time, we see at least a 23-per-cent increase in road crashes due to driver fatigue. Drivers lose an hour of sleep and this reduces response time behind the wheel. Crashes that involve sleepy drivers sit in the No. 2 spot of all reported crashes. However, these crashes are often under-reported as many drivers don’t want to admit to falling asleep behind the wheel after having crashed. Crashes that do involve drowsy drivers represent 6.5 per cent of all reported crashes in Canada, on average. Drivers who crash after falling asleep tend to have serious, life-threatening injuries mostly because they are not able to prepare themselves for the collision. If you are feeling tired and you are driving, you are at risk and so are the other road users around you. Young people are especially at risk, as are those

Free Learners Preparation Monday, Apr 12th 6:30 - 8:30 pm Full Driving Course: Apr 10th - Saturday Program Apr 13th - Tuesday Evenings

who tend to stay up late and drive during the night hours. Drowsy driving also affects shift workers as well as people with untreated sleep disorders. Most crashes that involve sleepy drivers happen between midnight and 6 a.m. Warning Signs: 1. If you can’t stop yawning or can’t keep your eyes open – pull over and don’t drive! 2. If you find you are driving, but don’t remember the last few blocks – pull over and don’t drive! 3. If you find concentrating on the road difficult and find your vehicle is drifting in and out of the correct lane – pull over and don’t drive! Many people assume they can just drink a cup of coffee and that will help wake them up. However, it might take a half hour or so for the caffeine to take effect and even that amount of caffeine won’t last long. If you drink coffee daily, you are less likely to feel the effect of the caffeine when you are feeling this sleepy.

Opening the window for a second helps but once you close it again, you are back where you started. The best way to alleviate sleepy driving is to simply STOP DRIVING. What can you do to keep yourself out of this dangerous situation? Plan ahead. If you know you are going to be out late and are concerned you won’t be safe to drive, have someone pick you up. If you are driving and you experience any of the above signs, pull over on a safe part of the road. Park your car and sleep for 20 minutes. You might just need to find a place to sleep for the night to keep everyone on the roads, including yourself, safe. Watch how you react to the change to daylight savings hours this week and for several weeks afterward because it can take two to three weeks or more for your body to adjust to the new time!
