Funding cuts Senior wants to save garden plot won’t impact local radio expansion Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER


Despite an expected funding cut of between five and 10 per cent to the public broadcaster in next spring’s federal budget, the recent expansion of radio service here will not be directly affected, says the head of the CBC. Hubert Lacroix, who was in Kelowna Wednesday as part of a Western Canada tour of CBC station offices and the communities they serve, told the Capital News any cuts that have to be made will be done outside of the resources being used for the four-year plan that included creation of Radio West, a new afternoon radio show out of Kelowna that started last week, and the anticipated start of new morning show out of Kamloops next year. “We will trim around the edges,” said Lacroix, adding it is not his intention to curtail the plan that will also see new regional radio shows in Kitchener-Waterloo and London, Ont., Rimouski in Que., and the addition of evening television news broadcasts on the week-

ends in Edmonton, Ottawa, and St. John’s. Noting the plan, dubbed Everyone, Every Way, is being funded through existing CBC resources, the president and CEO of the corporation said there are seven million Canadians are either not served or underserved by the public broadcaster across this country. “You cannot be a public broadcaster without being deeply in the regions,” said Lacroix. The CBC currently receives $1.1 billion in funding from the federal government and has to raise an additional $700,000 in revenue itself to meet its budget. Lacroix argues that in order to meet the expectations of the government and Canadians that a public broadcaster shouldaccessibility and, in the words of the Broadcasting Act “to inform, enlighten and entertain,”— CBC needs the money it receives. And despite criticism often leveled at it because of the public mon-

Will Smith, 71, may not have much in the way of material riches, but with a plot of land one-quarter the size of an average Kelowna yard, he’s grown ingredients fit for a month-long vegan feast. “I produced a couple hundred pounds of carrots,” said the Pleasantvale resident Tuesday, as he surveyed his six-by-eight foot garden. “And we have another hundred pounds of beets.” The carrots and beets, which will go into dry storage, will help sustain Smith throughout the winter, but there’s a lot of bounty for one man to handle. That’s why he’s already given some of his harvest to his neighbours at the low-income seniors complex where he lives. And, as beets were being pulled from the ground Tuesday, their edible tops were being lopped off and packaged up to be donated to the food bank. By Smith’s estimates, farming and the edible rewards that can be reaped from it, is the best way forward in terms of creating a sustainable community. But he has some concerns that the little niche he’s carved out may cease to be in years to come. Pleasantvale, the city’s oldest seniors’ housing complex, was passed from the Rotary Club of Kelowna to B.C. Housing at the cost of a dollar. The provincial housing authority is expected to change the 38,400 square foot bachelor suites and 12 one-bedroom apartments into a higher density building. Current residents will get housing in the units at the cost they currently pay when anything new is built. Before that happens, however, Smith is making a plea that his garden, or a garden of its kind, be kept in mind. “We’ve put in a request to the board to ask if they rebuild, will they give 1,000 square feet for a garden,” he said. “The people we have here don’t have a lot of money and there’s so much potential. In terms of group development, it could create a dynamic where people work together and feel united and bound in belonging. If the Rotary would support this, and put it through to architects, it would vitalize the future for the old residents.” In addition to a garden space, Smith is hoping any new development could come along with a root cellar, for storage, and he’s said as much to the board overseeing the building. He hasn’t heard anything yet, but in the meantime he’ll keep gardening.

Reader Grizzly bear regrets wandering into midst of Hwy 97 traffic survey online offers great Cancer survivor prize strives to keep her community healthy ▼ LAKE COUNTRY

A bear was likely regretting wandering in the way of traffic in Lake Country on Tuesday after being hit by a vehicle.

The collision occurred at about 11:30 a.m. on Highway 97 near Commonwealth Road. Lake Country RCMP

said the bear was reported to be a grizzly, and that it suffered apparent significant injuries yet was able to hobble off the highway

and back into the bush. Conservation Officers were called to the scene and as of Wednesday afternoon were still trying

to track the location of the big bruin. Lake Country RCMP advised local residents Tuesday to be mindful

that the bear may still be in their neighbourhood and to escort their kids to school.



Cancer chose to not make life easy for Ann Marie Hansen, her husband or the rest of her family. But Hansen chose to not make it easy for cancer to exist in herself, her husband, her family or her community. Two years ago, Hansen heard that the mammogram clinic might not be coming back to West Kelowna, due to a lack of volunteers. “I went over and said, ‘What do you need?’ From that day forward, I organized the mammogram clinics for the Westside,” said Hansen. Hansen’s own experience helped her sympathize with the fact that such clinics make many women nervous. It was Hansen’s goal to make West Kelowna women feel as comfortable as possible. “We decided that we would have two people at

the clinic at all times, one to greet people at the door because it’s not always comfortable going to a strange place.” It didn’t take long for women to realize the value of the service. “It’s free, it takes 15 minutes and it’s a good experience. We have another clinic coming up on Nov. 5.” After seeing the positive results of the mammogram clinics, Hansen decided to widen her efforts. The fruits of her labour showed on Saturday at the first ever Health and Wellness Fair, held at Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary School. Helping her community was always a motivation for spearheading the event; however, the driving force was an incident that hit close to home. “I really wanted to do this Health Fair because last year I lost my cousin to cancer. (I’ve) gone through this journey, my mom went through this

You’d think all the women in your family would’ve got checked.” Hansen explained that she wanted to make sure that health awareness was reinforced in West Kelowna. She told another story as an example that certain members of the community don’t realize the importance of getting checked.

Among other benefits to the regional district’s free tire collection program, almost 1,800 potential mosquito breeding sites have been removed. And this coming weekend there are more opportunities for property owners to benefit. Drop off any old tires for free recycling

“I was talking to a gentleman the other day about prostate cancer. I gave him the pamphlet that the Cancer Society had and he said, ‘I didn’t know where (the prostate) was.’ Here’s a man of 42 years of age who didn’t know. Men should be looking after their bodies as well as women.” “This is what the whole health fair is about, teaching you how to

ing. It is Hansen’s goal that the event becomes an annual one. “It’s my hope that we can do this every year, because we have so much expertise here and we have so many different illnesses and conditions that people need help with that they don’t know what’s in their own area.”

CORD approves organic waste management assessment Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

The Central Okangaan Regional District board approved a contract for reviewing, assessing and providing options for organic solid waste management in the Central Okanagan. According to Peter Rotheisler, regional waste reduction manager, the assessment will look at all of the organic waste streams

including: yard and garden waste, wood waste, food waste and biosolids, which are the residue from waste water treatment plants. “In order to do this type of assessment, we need to have expertise that we don’t have in house. Specifically, we need people with experience using life cycle assessment models,” said Rotheisler. Of the seven companies that bid for the assess-

ment, SLR Consulting Limited’s bid was determined to be the most favourable. Rotheisler said the time is now for the assessment for a variety of reasons. “One of the reasons is that there are a lot of questions from the public and politicians regarding how we’re going to manage our food waste in the future,” said Rotheisler. “The other aspects

have to do with problems that we’re encountering with our current method for managing some of our solid organic waste materials.” One of those problems is finding a market for clean wood. “There used to be a good market through Tolko, which could use it in their cogeneration facility to generate heat and electricity, but they are under some heavy scrutiny (from the Ministry of Environment) regarding the emissions that facility

is emitting. “They’re worried about the contamination within our clean lumber. Things like paints and adhesives and any material that you may find attached to some of that clean lumber. Even though we do our best to ensure the best quality that we can, there are still things that get through and end up being problematic when they combust the material.” According to Rotheisler, another issue is that the province is looking at changing the organic

matter recycling regulation, which regulates major composting operations and regulates the types of materials that can, and can’t, be composted. “They’re looking at making some changes that may impact some of the things that we currently compost. Some of our current programs are vulnerable to some of these changes and are being put into question.” Rotheisler said that the biggest reason for the assessment is to find solutions for managing food

waste, which is estimated to generate more than 30,000 metric tonnes every year to the Central Okanagan solid waste stream. “Food waste is the main organic solid waste component that we’re not doing anything special with. We’re landfilling it. There are numerous techniques that need to be looked at by combining different organic solid waste materials and seeing if there are any economies of scale there by combining multiple organic waste streams.”


Free downtown parking pondered Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna council is considering free parking downtown in a bid to ease the strain some businesses expect to feel during the major road work planed for Bernard Avenue next year. In accepting a recommendation that the road work be done in three major phases—fall 2012, and spring and fall 2013—council also in-

structed staff to look at the potential impact of allowing free parking downtown during the construction. “There’s going to be pain (to businesses in the area as a result of the road work),” said Coun. Andre Blanleil. “It’s how you’re going to manage the pain that’s the issue.” Blanleil suggested the free parking plan, saying while there will be a shortterm cost to city parking revenues as a result, overall it will be a win for the city’s downtown core. “Whatever we can do to keep people coming downtown will be a win,” he said.

And he found plenty of support among his council colleagues. Coun. Michele Rule cautioned the free parking should be for customers, not employees of downtown business or construction crews. Rule agreed with the city’s general manager of community sustainability that it is important there be parking turnover to make spaces available for shoppers. Despite earlier indications from city staff that they planned to wait a week before making a recommendation about a timing schedule for the Bernard Avenue work to council, community ser-

vices general manager John Vos presented a report asking council to approve the work schedule at Monday’s meeting. Now that the schedule has been approved, staff will immediately start work to find a design consultant. The $14 million project will replace utilities and services under the street and beautify the above ground streetscape. Local merchants have agreed to pay for 25 per cent of the streetscape work, estimated to be about $1.5 million. In accepting what staff described as their “preSee Parking A5

Advance voting in West Kelowna Those who have a full calendar on Nov. 19 will still have a couple of opportunities to make their vote count. Advance voting opportunities will be provided at the District of West Kelowna Community Portable, located at 2760 Cameron Road, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9 and Tuesday, Nov. 15. There will also be an opportunity for individuals, who qualify, to participate in mail ballot voting. Individuals who have a physical disability, illness or injury that affects their ability to vote at another voting opportunity are eligible for mail ballot voting.


Others who expect to be absent from the municipality on general voting day, and at the times of all advance voting opportunities, may opt to send in mail ballots as well. Anyone wishing to participate in mail ballot voting must apply to the municipality. On Wednesday, Nov. 2, applications will be available for mail ballots on the district’s website or at Municipal Hall. Mail ballots will be available between the first day of advanced voting (Nov. 9) and 4 p.m. on Nov. 17, two days before the general voting day. For more information, contact the Corporate Services Department at 778-797-1000.

ferred” work schedule, fcouncil rejected the option tof starting in the fall of 2012 and working straight through the winter and spring of 2013, at a possible cost of nearly $21 million. The city says the extra cost of winter work and running crews at night rwould add $6.9 million to the cost of the project unless the weather was mild through the winter months fof 2012 and early 2013. But that schedule was supported by 100 people who signed a petition circulated by Michael Neill, owner of Mosaic Books. He, like several others who turned out for an open house on possible timing options for the project last week, recognize there will be financial pain for businesses in the area during the construction, and wants the work done as quickly as possible to minimize the adverse effects. Project staff said that in an earlier meeting it held with merchants, there was clear consensus that the businesses did not want work to be ongoing during the summer months as that was their biggest revenue generating time and that request would be honoured. Vos said as the end of each phase of the work, the street would be left in usable condition, likely with an initial layer of asphalt on top. No schedule of which blocks and when they will

be worked on has been established yet. In the end, Coun. Luke Stack appeared to sum up the feeling of most on council when he said the winter work scheduled was rejected because city

taxpayers would not be happy if it added $6 million to cost of project. As part of its plan, the city has also said it will put together an extensive communication strategy to keep the public and

area merchants fully and constantly aware of what is happening during construction in order to show that downtown will remain open for business.

Expanded options for voters By taking a few minutes to look ahead at their voting options, Kelowna residents can pick the most convenient time and place to cast their ballot in November’s municipal election. Election officials have increased the number of voting opportunities leading up to general voting day, Nov. 19. Four advanced voting dates, Nov. 9, 16, 17 and 18, along with locations chosen for high accessibility factors, give more people a chance to vote at convenient daytime locations. “In the past, simply increasing the number of polling stations on Election Day did not result in more people getting out to

vote,” said Chief Electoral Officer Karen Needham. “What we’ve heard from citizens is that more options on days to vote would make a difference.” More advanced polling stations in more convenient locations lets Kelowna residents plan ahead and choose a day, time and place to vote that fits their schedules. Advanced polling stations at Parkinson Recreation Centre, Okanagan College, UBC Okanagan and City Hall are good voting spots for people who live and work in those areas. “These locations are also served by transit, have adequate visitor parking and are accessible for persons with disabili-

ties,” said Needham. Advanced voting polling stations are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on: Nov. 9: Okanagan College, Centre for Learning, Parkinson Recreation Centre Nov. 16: City Hall, Parkinson Recreation Centre, UBC Okanagan Campus, Students Union Building Nov. 17: City Hall Nov. 18: City Hall On election day, Nov. 19, residents will have 10 voting locations to choose from, including Orchard Park Shopping Centre from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. All other election day voting locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. For those out of town

Lacroix seeks local feedback of the CBC Cuts from A1 ey it gets, Lacroix has no problem defending the CBC’s operations, noting the high level of Canadian programming it airs, the $3.7 it generates for every $1 in funding received and the quality of the programming it produces. But funding the CBC on 12-month cycle makes it difficult to plan for the future, he said. That is why he is calling on the government to commit to longer-term funding. “How can you run a $1.7 billion company on a 12-month cycle?” he asked.

nsomnia, anxiety, allergic reactions, palpitations and withdrawal—a list of symptoms from an illegal drug? No, it’s what adults have known for years are the downsides of drinking too much coffee and tea. Unfortunately, now the kids are emulating their parents by drinking energy drinks that typically have twice the caffeine of pop and just about as much as a cup of drip coffee. The kids think these drinks

are cool, their logos are eyecatching and they are easy to get at corner stores and grocery outlets. A single can of Red Bull or Monster falls within Health Canada guidelines for caffeine consumption for older teens, but what happens if two or more are consumed in a day? Should the government have taken a tougher stance and prevented these drinks from being sold anywhere but pharmacies? The more adults try to regu-

late teen behaviour, the more challenges they face. And the fact that caffeine is mildly addictive is not lost on companies marketing their products to kids in new and innovative ways. The popularity of these beverages among teens looking for a light buzz is reminiscent of the older generations’ interest in cigarettes. For teens, water is boring, pop is old-school and so is juice, although neither are great as they are full of sugar.

But are we comfortable with kids picking up an energy drink at lunch or on the way home from school? At the very least, parents should be educating themselves as to what their children are ingesting. Health Canada’s suggested limits for daily caffeine intake are roughly 2.5 mg per kilogram of body weight. Parents can at least use the new content disclosure rules to find out whether their kids’ drinks measure up.

Inaction to resolve treaty settlements becoming expensive


inally, somebody in the B.C. treaty negotiation system has come out and said it. Releasing the B.C. Treaty Commission’s 19th annual report last week, Chief Commissioner Sophie Pierre announced she has asked for a one-year extension to her term, to see the organization through its second decade. And if things don’t change, particularly in Ottawa, then “shut ’er down.” The commission is the independent “keeper of the process,” and the chief commissioner is appointed by agreement between the federal and provincial governments and B.C.’s

First Nations Summit. Its job is to facilitate talks and dole out funds to aboriginal groups researching and negotiating treaties. As of this year, they Tom have disbursed $500 Fletcher million, $400 million of it loans that must be repaid out of treaty settlements. “We are 19 years into the process, and we have, just on the First Nations side, a half a billion dollar investment, and when are we going to start seeing a return on that investment?” Pierre asked. It’s safe to assume that there has been at least that much spent by the federal and provincial governments as well. And after a burst of progress


with the Tsawwassen and Maa-Nulth treaties, and a controversial deal with the Yale First Nation in the Fraser Canyon, costly inaction resumed. Sliammon First Nation negotiators finalized a treaty in 2009. Off it went to Ottawa, where it has languished ever since, waiting for a set of initials that would allow a ratification vote by about 1,000 Sliammon people near Powell River. At stake is a settlement in which B.C. contributes 8,300 hectares of Crown land and Ottawa provides $37 million to compensate for a century of trespass and resource extraction from Sliammon territory. (You can object to all this and try to live in the past, as B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins does, but we now have stacks of high court de-

cisions that make aboriginal title real and inescapable, if not well defined.) Other commissioners agreed with Pierre about Ottawa’s role, including the federal appointee, Jerry Lampert. “The Canadian system is such that they are constantly going back to Ottawa for mandates for their individual negotiators,” Lampert said. “This is bureaucratic, and it plays against the idea that we’re in a real negotiation.” With a majority government in Ottawa, and B.C. MP John Duncan as federal aboriginal affairs minister, there is hope of movement. And there is action on another front. Federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq was in B.C. last week to sign an agreement to hand over authority and funding for on-reserve health programs to a new aboriginal

authority that will work with the provincial health system directly to administer reserve health programs. This will end a parallel health system run by Ottawa on reserves. A similar agreement was signed in 2006 for aboriginal schooling. Alas, five years later, there is still wrangling between the First Nations Education Steering Committee and Ottawa over funding. But I’m told there is progress there, with resolution possible by the end of this year. Sto:lo Tribal Chief Doug Kelly, chair of the First Nations Health Council, says its financing terms are clear, and dealing Ottawa out of health care delivery will improve outcomes. See FletcherA9

Kindly respect my right to democracy To the editor: I have reviewed the website, found that my beliefs aligned with this campaign and am now proud to state publicly I’m a full supporter of this effort. I regret in the past I have been guilty of taking municipal elections for granted. I applaud the efforts of this group in giving me some hope that perhaps this election can be different. Too often, when it comes time to vote we do not hold incumbents accountable for their voting

records and we make our voting decisions based on how pleasant or enthusiastic they may be. Perhaps this is why incumbents nearly always get reelected. I read a recent article in the Capital News by Jennifer Smith about how we all should make up our own minds at the voting polls. Smith takes a position that one should vote based on how many doors councillors have knocked on, and how many volunteer hours these incumbents have put in, how many

people they have met, and how long they have been involved in activism. Well, for me and perhaps many Kelowna readers, this is not an acceptable criterion for electing/ re-electing our community leaders. I am looking for real qualifications such as leadership, the ability to achieve quality results on improving our downtown core, stimulating employment opportunities for our youth and providing a safe place to live. Most importantly, I am seeking individuals who

conduct themselves with honour and integrity. Irrespective of whether you supported CD21 or not, the handling of this issue dishonoured the reputation of our city and offended many, including this writer. Our current council proved ineffective largely because four councillors were lacking in the experience and vision I would expect of community leaders. If one would believe the allegations from Smith’s article, I am bloodthirsty and on the at-

tack. Well, I beg to differ. I am a proud citizen who is going to exercise my democratic right to support those I feel will do the best job for our beautiful city. Kindly respect my right to do so as I respect your right to lobby for who you wish. Thanks FourChange. org for a direction and democratic campaign I can support. Ken Umbarger, Kelwona

To the editor: I’m not one who normally takes part in protest demonstrations. But on Saturday, Oct. 15, I did because I felt the cause was very important. And that is the inequity of our current economic system. Some years ago, the G20 countries made a promise to work towards eliminating poverty in the world. Well years later, what we have is the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. More people continue to slip into the poor category as time goes by. Even here in Kelowna, in the past year we had an increase of 20 per cent in the demand at the food bank. And for those who believe in the trickle down system, well that trickle isn’t even a drip now. In fact, it’s more like the reverse—the flow going from the bottom to bolster the greed on top. My biggest concern is for the future generations. I myself am a descendant of slaves. And I know of the sacrifices and extreme hardships my grandparents endured, not only for their own freedom but mostly for their future generations, like myself. And while I don’t believe that the future will regress back to what my grandparents’ generation experienced, on the income side, it can regress if the system doesn’t change. So I ask the present generation to speak out, to do whatever is needed to make sure that this does not happen. We owe that to the future generations. Orest Swintak, Kelowna


To the editor: I watched the semi-final game Sunday at the Apple Bowl between the Okanagan Sun and Langley Rams. I have to come clean and say I was very disappointed. Not so much because we lost, and not so much because the quarterback threw so many interceptions and incomplete passes, but because it was such a beautiful day out and hardly anyone showed up to be supportive of our football team here in Kelowna. There were almost as many Langley supporters as Sun supporters, and there was something totally wrong with that picture. To see the lack of support from Kelowna truly disappointed me as the games are not expensive with ticket prices at $15 for an adult and $10 for

Treaty commission head says start talking or else ‘shut’er down’ Fletcher from A8 B.C. Health Minister Mike de Jong and Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak agree that these broader self-government transfers for health and education, along with forest and mining deals, will bring treaties closer.

Pierre’s blunt warning must have been heard in Ottawa. It appears the Sliammon treaty has been located and will receive federal blessing this week. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

seniors and students. I really believe that this lack of support came into play as the game went along and we eventually lost. Kelowna residents should really be ashamed, except perhaps for those who were doing late season gardening or those who are not football fans. I can understand why they were not at the Apple Bowl on Sunday. But for those who do like football, shame on you for not making an effort, for not getting off your lazy butt to turn out to support our local team. No excuses. If you did not show up because the B.C. Lions were playing around the same time, there is a new technical advancement called PVR

to look into. The Okanagan Sun even offer activities for kids while the parents watch the game, such as fun slides, bouncey castles, etc. I hope to see way more support next season and more people who actually leave their house and show some support for our team. The Okanagan Sun play some very hard fought football and the action is very enjoyable, especially when the weather is good. Go Sun! Nol Preen Kelowna

FAMILY AND friends of former Kelowna MLA Sindi Hawkins were on hand last Friday to celebrate the cancer

centre in Kelowna being renamed in her honour, the B.C. Cancer Agency Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Souther Interior. Hawkins passed away in 2010 after a long battle with leukemia.


Cancer centre renamed in honour of former MLA Sindi Hawkins The B.C. Cancer Agency Centre for the Southern Interior received a new name last Friday in honour of the late MLA Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins. The now titled B.C. Cancer Agency Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior provides cancer patients and their families with the services they require close to home. A nurse and a lawyer, Hawkins served as the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Mission and served in different portfolios witin the provincial government cabinet.

She championed for better cancer care and research throughout British Columbia before losing her seven-year battle with acute myeloid leukemia in 2010. Hawkins was sympathetic to the needs of other Interior cancer patients. She helped establish the Leukemia/Bone Marrow Transplant Outreach Program of B.C., a first of its kind in North America. This program provides outreach clinics at four locations outside of Vancouver to serve eligible patients who cannot conveniently travel to the Lower Mainland for ap-

pointments. Hawkins understood the economic and personal hardships cancer patients face when travelling to Vancouver for an extended period of time. While serving in cabinet, Hawkins initiated a project to provide better housing options for cancer patients and their families. Today, thanks to a partnership between the province, the Krall family and the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundations, leukemia/bone marrow and solid organ transplant patients needing to travel to Vancouver have access to housing services.

The Patient Accommodation Pilot Project helps patients and their families find housing options for the duration of their time at Vancouver General Hospital. Hawkins, a Canadian of East Indian ethnic origin, understood the challenges that ethnic patients faced in finding a stem cell donor. She actively blogged and spoke at events throughout her illness to encourage more ethnically diverse donors to register with the national stem cell registry. She organized stem cell drives and launched the Thanks Mom drive in 2006. “Sindi did so much for Interior cancer patients, their families and our province as a whole. I am pleased to see her great work continue on in the hopes that one day soon we will be living in a world without cancer,” said local MLA Ben Stewart. “Sindi was a passionate advocate for the delivery of the best care possible for people affected by cancer and her legacy represents our commitment to continue to be the leader in delivering the highest quality of cancer care in Canada,” added Lorraine McGrath, a board member for Interior Health. Rupie Sachdeva, Hawkins’ sister, said the cancer centre renaming was a fitting tribute to “everyone Sindi worked so

Small business awards KELOWNA NEW CAR for excellence handed out AUTO DEALERS The recipients of the six 2011 Business Excellence Awards were revealed at a banquet held Monday at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort & Conference Centre. Barry Meckler, president and CEO of Interior Savings, was honoured as the 2011 Business Leader of the Year, the award sponsored by UBC Faculty of Management. The other business award winners were: • Poppadoms Taste India! (owned by Serge Dosanj) was the recipient of the 2011 Rising Star award, sponsored by FortisBC. This award is for companies that have been in business less than three years. Finalists: IT Services Kelowna, Vital Waters Inc.

fice Business Furnishings (Roy Collins & Carmen Sparg) • Finalists: All Occasions Party Rentals Inc., X.10.SION 207 Clothing Company/Surf Culture Clothing Co. • Mid-Size Business Award (11-30 employees), sponsored by BDO Canada LLP Recipient: Barefoot Venus.

Finalists: Central Okanagan Child Development Association, Kelowna Gospel Mission, Okanagan Valley Pregnancy Care Centre “We salute those who have recognized a business opportunity, seized it and prospered,” said Karen Hawes, Kelowna Chamber of Commerce president. “The accomplishments and dedication of all the finalists honoured last evening are impressive and their stories inspire us all. We are proud of the contributions these exceptional business leaders have made in our community.” Presented by the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce and platinum sponsors the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) and Farris, Vaughan, Wills & Murphy LLP, the awards presentation is part of the annual Small Business Week, Oct. 16 to 22.




Feds trying to open new trade doors around the globe Cannan from A12 Youth Business Foundation and Canada Small Business Financing. It’s also why the government has been pursuing an aggressive free trade agenda. As one of B.C.’s top 25 exporters, shortlisted for the top three, AEM’s sales have grown 44 per cent, year over year, with over 95 per cent of their sales outside Canada. As Pat Bell, B.C. Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, points out: “These companies, regardless if they’re established players or up-and-comers, are proof that exporting leads to success.” International trade has long been recognized as an essential driver of jobs and growth for Canadian businesses and communities and key to raising the standard of living of Canadians. Although the Canadian economy has been and will continue to be closely integrated to the North American continent, it makes sense to diversify beyond the United States to benefit from the large existing and emerging markets. That is why, in less than five years, the government has launched an ambitious trade agenda, opening doors to Canadian business by concluding new free trade agreements with Colombia, Peru, Jordan, Panama and the European Free Trade Association states. And currently, with its mix of lead-

ing and emerging economies, Canada is looking to the lucrative market of the European Union. With access to a high-income market of one-half billion consumers, a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with the EU will offer great potential for economic growth and job creation generating an estimated $12 billion annually in economic activity. When you realize that Canada represents more than 2% of the world’s trade but has only .5 % of the world’s population, you realize just how important trading with the world is to Canada. We’re good at it and our Government, led by International Trade Minister Ed Fast, is committed to expanding trade opportunities for Canada knowing that Canadian businesses and workers can compete with the best in the world. Robust trade worldwide, along with a very competitive tax regime, is just one more way that our government is strengthening the economy, helping Canadian business to grow, and creating jobs for Canadians. Small businesses like Kelowna’s own Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp. are more than ready to take advantage.

Acupuncture philosophy behind treating dizziness D

izziness is one of the most common reasons adults visit their doctors. Although it may seriously interfere with a per-

son’s day-to-day life, it is usually not indicative of a serious or life-threatening condition. Dizziness can be caused by many things

such as an ear infection, stroke, migraine, heart problems, or anxiety disorders. Dizziness in Chinese Medicine is a symptom that can range from

a very slight dizziness, sometimes only occurring when changing posture, to very severe vertigo with loss of balance as everything around the

person seems to be spinning. Also, the term dizziness includes the very common sensation of mugginess and a heavy feeling as if the head was full of cotton with clouded thinking and an inability to concentrate. The common causes of dizziness are emotional strain, overworking the body, and diet. Emotions such as anger, frustration, resentment, and bottled-up feelings affect the liver and cause heat to accumulate in it, causing dizziness. Overwork for many years whether through working long hours, or working physically demanding jobs, or just being chronically run down can also cause dizziness by slowly weakening the kidneys. Over time the kidneys fail to create enough energy to nourish the brain, and dizziness occurs. This is considered a deficiency type. Diet can also play a role, particularly if there is over-consumption of greasy foods or dairy products or irregular eating habits—this will


James Kaufman weaken the spleen and stomach, creating a damp environment in the body and eventually an accumulation of phlegm. This dampness and phlegm then blocks the clear, clean qi-energy from rising to the head, which gives rise to dizziness. The severity of dizziness can vary according to the cause. For example, if the liver is the cause, the dizziness would be severe, with other symptoms that may include tinnitus, irritability, headache, red face, bitter taste, vertigo, tremors, and loss of balance. If the spleen and stomach are involved, and in an early stage before dampness and phlegm have accumulated there would be slight dizziness, sometimes with posture change, fatigue, dull-pale complexion, and poor appetite.

When phlegm has accumulated the dizziness would be accompanied with heavy-headedness, difficulty thinking and concentrating (especially in the morning), nausea, poor appetite, and a sticky taste in the mouth. With Chinese medicine, health is based on the idea that the body is never static—our internal environment is constantly fluctuating as it responds to our external environment. We know this to be true through the study of modern medicine, and the various systems within our body that act to maintain homeostasis, or a stable norm in our body’s functioning. Acupuncture treatment works with your body to promote healing by bringing it back to that balanced state, influencing things like blood pressure, heart rate, hormones, endorphins, and sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. Often improper functioning of these systems can be at the root of mysterious symptoms like dizziness.

Veteran Main a mainstay with WHL’s Rockets Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

When Spencer Main sees some of his former teammates thriving in the NHL, it’s just another reminder of the history and longevity the 19-year-old centre has enjoyed as a member of the Kelowna Rockets. Now in his fourth Western Hockey League season, the North Vancouver product has seen a lot of players come and go on his way to becoming the Rockets’ active leader in games played. Early in his career, Main suited up for many of those games with the likes of current bigleaguers Tyler Myers, Jamie Benn and Brandon McMillan. “Time goes by fast, and to see those guys up there now doing so well is pretty special,” said Main. “To come back here and see them at the rink before the season, talk to them and see how they’re doing is pretty cool. “I think the funniest thing is when you’re in a hockey pool with your buddies, and those guy’s names all pop up,” Main added. “Your buddies all know you played with those guys, so it’s fun. It’s something you never forget.” While Main takes a keen interest in the progress of his former teammates in the pros, the 5-foot-11, 188-pound forward has quietly etched

out a certain legacy of his own with the Rockets. If all goes as planned over the next couple of weeks, Main will play in his 200th career regular season game in the WHL when Kelowna visits Kamloops on Oct. 29. For a guy who needed 53 games to score his first goal as a 16-year-old late in the 2008-09 season, Main has no complaints with the way his career has unfolded since. “I’m proud of that number (200 games),” Main said who has played in 194 regular season WHL games and 34 more in the playoffs. “I think it means I’ve been playing well enough to be in the lineup most days, and to do it with the a same team for that long, I’m pretty happy about that. When I look back, it’s been good for me in Kelowna.” In his fourth season in the WHL, Main is off to the best offensive start of his career in 2011-12 with four goals and three assists in nine games. Still, the Rockets believe Main is most effective when he plays his characteristic two-way game. Combined with the leadership he offers as a 19-year-old veteran—and currently one of three assistant captains— the coaching staff views Main as a key figure in the club’s success this season. “Leadership is the big thing we want Spencer to bring,” said Huska. “He

was one of the guys who was at the Memorial Cup with us back in 2009, he’s 19 now and has that experience to pass on. “We expect him to be reliable, to be very good at both ends of the ice. He’s playing in all situations, he’s getting some power play time and he’s been very good for us.” For Main’s part, he’s more than happy to be taking on the added responsibility and, on most nights, is seeing at least 20 minutes of ice time— often playing against the opposing team’s top lines. And while the Rockets’ recent six-game losing streak hasn’t been particularly enjoyable, the veteran centre is confident a reversal of fortunes will be only be a matter of time. “Obviously I would have liked a few more wins but I think our team has been playing the right way the last few games,” added Main. “Unfortunately we haven’t got the results, but I think if we continue to play the same way, eventually we’ll it turnaround. I really like our team and the guys we have here, so the wins will come.” Rocket Shots…The Rockets (3-5-1-0) will host the Vancouver Giants Thursday and the Victoria Royals Saturday at Prospera Place. Face-off both nights is 7 p.m. Kelowna will then visit the Giants on Sunday.

Heat host Dinos for two in exhibition hoops The UBC Okanagan men’s basketball squad is on the home hardwood this weekend for a pair of exhibition games against the University of Calgary Dinos. The 2011-12 Canada West opponents will meet at the Kelowna campus gym at 8 p.m. Friday, and again Saturday at 4 p.m. The Heat is coming off another close defeat as they rimmed out in the final seconds to fall 79-76 to the NAIT Ooks last Sunday at the UBCO gym. Another superb second half of basketball from Yassine Ghomari

for the Heat as the thirdyear guard tallied 19 of his game high 27 points in the last two frames of the game. Swing man Mack Roth had the three-point stroke going as he hit four threes in scoring 16 points on the day. The second half saw Ghomari and NAIT forward Clayton Crellin put on an offensive display. Crellin and Ghomari, high school teammates at Vancouver’s Kitsilano Secondary in 2007, scored 21 and 19 second half points respectively. In the fourth quarter the Heat managed to hold a lead as Ghomari

and Crellin exchanged baskets. When Morrison fouled out with only a few minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Heat where unable to control the Ooks on the defensive end. NAIT surged ahead and held off the Heat in spite of the last minute spectacular shooting of Ghomari. Yassine was unable to bring the lead back to Heat, falling 79-76. “It was an exciting game and we had another solid game from Yassine,” said head coach Darren Semeniuk. “We also had a couple of different players step up today, but overall the team is still incon-







sistent and we are not able to sustain the level of play we need to be at for the full 40 minutes, far too many turnovers and just too many mistakes. These guys will get a wake up against U of C.” Meanwhile, the Heat will play at Mount Boucherie Secondary School in West Kelowna. Mt. Boucherie will host a CIS preseason basketball game between the UBC Okanagan men’s team and the Vancouver Island University Mariners on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $2 for youths and $4 for adults.


UBCO winless in Alberta The UBC Okanagan Heat women’s basketball team returned from a preseason trip to Calgary with an 0-3 record at the Ranger Elite Cougar Classic tournament hosted by Mount Royal University. The Heat faced off against the host Cougars on Friday night and suffered a 66-60 loss. Guard Madison Kaneda scored 12 points in the game and Krystal Schouten finished with 11 points and six rebounds. Saturday night was a preview of the Heat’s Canada West regular season opening matchup, the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns who proved to be a bit too much for the Heat and prevailed 7259. For the Heat the only player to score in double digits was post Roz Huber with 11 points and eight rebounds. Sunday morning the Heat played Montana State University and fought back from a large halftime deficit only to fall 68-60. Saturday the Heat stumbled out of the gate trailing Lethbridge by nine at the quarter (23-14), only to tighten up on defense and go into the half trailing by four (36-32). The second half played out exactly like the first with the Heat losing the third quarter 22-10 to trail by 16 and then fight back, but still fell 72-59. For the Heat the only player to score in double digits was

Freshman guard Emily Kanester scored 18 of her game high 22 points in the second half, shooting 8/12 from the field and 3/5 from three in the game. “We played well and competed hard,” said Heat coach Heather Semeniuk. “We are just lacking in consistency and focus. Every quarter we would give up 20 points and score under 20, then

at the end of the game and we had lost by eight or 10. I think a good week of practice will help the girls clear their minds and refocus, if nothing else it will improve our cardio.” The Heat’s next exhibition game is Oct. 28 in Vancouver against UBC. They’ll open their inaugural season in the CIS Nov. 11 in Lethbridgej against the Proghorns, followed by a visit to the U of Calgary on Nov. 12.

Heat women wrap-up preseason play The UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyball squad continued to tune up for the Canada West season by posting a 1-3 record at the West Coast Classic in Vancouver. The Heat finished up the tournament on Sunday with a straight-set loss to the University of Alberta Pandas (25-19, 25-15, 2520). The West Coast Classic saw the Heat play a match Friday night, two

on Saturday and then one Sunday morning. With such a full schedule the Heat found themselves a bit nicked up going into the Sunday morning match and were without the services of a couple of their veteran players. Although the Heat lost in three sets, head coach Steve Manuel thought his team performed well against the Pandas, always one of the top teams in Canada, particularly in

the first and third sets. “We played them real tight until about the seventeenth or eighteenth point and then they would go on a real quick run and the set would end,” Manuel said. “It was kind of like one of those basketball games where the score is close until two minutes to play and one team makes a couple of baskets and the other team has a couple of misses and the game ends as an eight-point loss.”

The Heat was led by Jill Festival with eight kills and two aces, while freshman Brianna Beamish continued her strong play with seven kills, one block and seven digs. The Heat, who closed the preseason with a 5-5 record, will open up their Canada West schedule with a two-game home stand when they host the University of Winnipeg Oct. 28 and 29. Manuel believes his

team is ready for its first CIS campaign. “We are so very close in ability and level of play to the very top teams in Canada. Today was another indication of that as we were able to compete head on with Alberta, without doubt a national title contender again this season. Every time we play one of these upper echelon teams, we inch closer to being able to maintain that level.”


Heat men fall in exhibition encounter The Heat men’s volleyball team fell in five sets Sunday afternoon in an exhibition match on the Heat’s home court to a Canada West opponent, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies (2125, 28-26, 25-16, 22-25, 15-10). The Heat won the first set and led into the second t kset but were unable to put the Huskies away, losing a see-saw second set before teventually falling in five. “We played them pretty tight just couldn’t come up with it in the end,” said coach Greg Poitras. “We are playing at a high level, we are just not playing at a high level long enough. They (Saskatchewan) know the level, they’ve played in this league (the CIS) forever. “Riley (McFarland) had a good game,” added Poitras “we have been playing him on the left for quite a we played him on the right and he did really really well. He produced from the right more than anybody has so far, that was nice to see.” The numbers bear out Poitras’ observations as McFarland finished the five set match with 19-14 (kills-aces-blocks) and 7 digs. Fellow Heat outside hitter Nate Speijer finished the game with a 15-1-4 stat line. First year middle Leigh Goossen is acclimatizing himself quickly to the level of play leading the team with six blocks. Fellow freshman Jeremy Fostvelt led the

team with 10 digs. Setter Preston Tucker played in his second match of the year and although not full strength he led the team with 47

assists. Coach Poitras is pleased to have his setter back from his off season ankle injury but notes he is not at 100 per cent yet. The Heat’s preseason

record is now 3-8, while and the Huskies have finished their preseason schedule with a sixwin and three-loss record. The Heat will finish

their preseason schedule this Thursday and Friday when they travel to Kamloops to tune up against the Thompson Rivers WolfPack.

Students assist community event A tip of the hat goes this week to Rutland Middle School teacher Brian Janzen and his Grade 9 class trades students for assisting with the Kelowna Scarecrow Festival, hosted on Oct. 2 at Lions Park by the Uptown Rutland Business Association. Mr. Janzen’s students constructed 40 wood frames used as supports for the numerous scarecrow entries created at the festival. Mara Lumber also donated the building materials used by the students, as this project gave them the opportunity to put to practical use the woodworking skills they’ve learned in class to help a community event. Appreciation also goes out to Sandra Sellick, who helped to organize and encourage the students’ participation in the scarecrow festival.

Big names win at Cyclo Cross A pair of world-class riders won their respective divisions at the first annual School of Hard Knox Cyclo Cross Race. Peachland’s Evan Guthrie and Catharine Pendrel of Kamloops were the first to complete the 45-minute race last Sunday at the base of Knox Mountain. Guthrie is a former

world junior men’s cross country biking champ, while Pendrel won the 2011 world women’s

Cyclo Cross is extremely popular in Europe with its history dating back some 80 years, while the sport first caught in the U.S. about 30 years ago. Guthrie completed 11 laps of a 2 km loop in the 45-minute timed event, while Pendrel completed 10 laps to wins the women’s division. In the B race, riders competed on the 2 km loop for 30 minutes.

Game will be a battle for first in Okanagan AAA Conference The Kelowna Owls will put their unbeaten record on the line Friday night in Okanagan AAA Conference high school football action. The Owls (3-0) will take on the the secondplace and hometown Salmon Arm Golds (2-1) at Little Mountain Park. With just six games in the regular season schedule, KSS can all but wrap up a playoff berth with a victory. In the previous meet-

ing between the clubs, the Owls won 34-26 Sept. 30 at the Apple Bowl. The Owls are coming off a 33-6 win over the Mt. Boucherie Bears last Friday night. Nathan Brown scored two majors, one on the ground, the other on a pass from Sam Davies. Brook Blackmore, Mitch Weir and Scott McBurnie also rushed for majors while Blackmore had nine tackles on defense. The Bears lone score came

on a three-yard pass from Joe Court to Jarret Young. Cam Spence recorded nine tackles for Boucherie. Meanwhile, the Bears (1-2) and Rutland Voodoos (0-3) can’t afford many more losses if they want to remain in the hunt for one of two Okanagan postseason berths. Boucherie and Rutland will meet head on this Friday night at the Apple Bowl. Kick off is 6:30 p.m. The Voodoos


will be looking for payback after dropping a 3218 contest to Boucherie last month. Rutland is coming off a 12-6 loss last weekend to Salmon Arm. The Voodoos were victimized by turnovers and costly penalties. “Another tough loss. We are so close,” said Voodoos coach Shane Sommerfeld. “We have to keep working hard and focus on Boucherie for this Friday. We can not control our

past and must not dwell on it. We can control our future and three wins will get us into the playoffs.”

Okanagan’s lone marker in the third period. On Sunday, the Rockets rebounded with a 4-2 win over North Island. The Rockets were buoyed by the return of 17-year-old forward Mat Lambert to the line-up after a six-game suspen-

year. Lawrie will be the featured guest speaker at the second annual Okanagan College Coyotes Athletic fundraiser breakfast, which takes place Thursday, Oct. 27 from 7 to 9 a.m. at the Coast Capri Hotel. At just 21 years of age, Lawrie’s path to the major leagues took him from Langley, through the minors with the Milwaukie Brewers, and then to the Blue Jays. As a player Lawrie is known for his versatility and shows a great deal of promise for the Jays club. After being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas this season, Lawrie batted .293 with nine homeruns and 25 RBIs in 43 games with Toronto before a broken finger ended his 2011 season on Sept. 21. His early success provides a great example to other young B.C. athletes and is a reminder of the rewards that come with hard work and dedication. The Okanagan College Coyotes baseball and hockey programs are in their fourth and third years respectively, and are bringing both local and national recognition to Okanagan College. Both teams are responsible for covering their own operating costs and have received strong community support in the form of sponsorships. Proceeds from the breakfast fundraiser will go toward covering costs for the teams and their players in the 2011-12 season. Tickets to the Coyotes Fundraising Breakfast are available at a cost of $100 per person or $750 for a table of eight. Contact the athletics office at 762-5445 ext. 4754 to reserve your tickets.

Cost of poverty being ignored will be a fiscal nightmare


overty is costing us all way too much money. That is the conclusion of the National Council of Welfare, a government advisory council chaired by Senator Hugh Segal. The council is urging the federal government to take a long-term investment approach to eliminating poverty and thereby save taxpayers billions of dollars. They say the public cost of poverty in Canada is easily $25 billion a year and climbing. The costs come from lost productivity, health care, the justice system, shelters and make shift at-


Paul Latimer tempts to deal with the problem. Eliminating poverty would require some up front funding—but so do building more prisons and hospitals and we have been doing that for years. As an example, a homeless person in Calgary can cost $42,000 a year at emergency shelters, while putting him or

her in prison or a psychiatric hospital would cost about $120,000. Alternatively, giving access to supportive housing and social services would cost as little as $13,000 to $18,000. Many anti-poverty advocates have been telling us for years that dealing with poverty at its root would be less costly than treating its symptoms. But perhaps coming from a Conservative senator in a report to a Conser-

vative government it will have more impact. Of course, poverty and mental illness are intimately related. Another report from the World Economic Forum estimates the global cost of mental illness at nearly $2.5 trillion in 2010 with a projected cost of over $6 trillion by 2030. To put this in perspective, the entire global health spending in 2009 was $5 trillion. The entire

overseas development aid over the past 20 years is less than $2 trillion. These reports seem particularly relevant to the ongoing debates in Canada about health care and crime. The population is divided between those who want to build facilities and those who want to use science-based evidence to prevent crime or health care problems. Everyone acknowledges we will not be able

CORD and school trustee election mail ballots available Some Central Okanagan Electoral Area voters unable to cast a ballot during regular voting opportunities for the November election may still be able to have their ballot counted! For the second straight local government election, mail-in balloting is available as an option. Regional district communications coordinator Bruce Smith says, “There

are a number of possible reasons that qualified voters may wish to vote by mail-in ballot. “People who expect to be absent from the jurisdiction and are not able to vote in either Advance voting opportunities, Nov. 9 and 15 or on General Voting Day, Saturday, Nov. 19 or electors who may not be able to vote due to physical challenges, illness or injury, are el-

1 2

igible to vote by mail ballot.” In order to vote by mail, Smith says resident and non-resident electors must meet the same qualifications as any person voting at a polling location. They must be a Canadian Citizen, 18 years of age as of the date they vote, have resided in B.C. for six months immediately before registering to vote and have lived in the

Central Okanagan East or Central Okanagan West Electoral Area for 30 days immediately before registering to vote and they must not otherwise disqualified from voting. Electors who wish to vote by mail must complete and return the application form before Nov. 17 to the RDCO Elections Office at 1450 KLO Road; by email elections@cord.; or by regular mail

to the Regional District of Central Okanagan, 1450 KLO Road, Kelowna, BC V1W 3Z4. “We need their full name and residential address or the address of the property they own if they are a non-resident property elector and they must provide an address they wish to have the mail ballot package mailed to,” Smith says, “If you are a qualified

elector and your application has been completed correctly, once we receive the ballots in early November, we will send you a mail ballot package by regular Canada Post letter mail. If time doesn’t permit mailing, you should arrange to pick up a package from the Chief Election Officer.” In order to be counted, those using the mailin ballot option must en-

sure the completed ballot package is received by the Chief Election Officer no later than the close of regular polling at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov.19. The regional district website has links for more information regarding mail ballots and the application form.

Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program is a great incentive for consumers looking to save on their next vehicle while responsibly recycling their old one. Since the program was first offered in 2009, Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program has retired more than 50,000 old vehicles, equal to 10 times the height of Mt. Everest if stacked on top of each other.

Squaring off: Findlater vs Neis Race for West Kelowna mayor in Nov. 19 civic election will be a choice between the incumbent Doug Findlater and current city councillor and former mayor Rosalind Neis


They’ve both served as mayor for West Kelowna; they’ve both spent the last four years in the District of West Kelowna council chambers. But only one will continue to hold political power come Nov. 19. Doug Findlater and Rosalind Neis are the two names that West Kelowna residents will see under the mayor category when they head to the polls next month. Findlater, who has lived in the West Kelowna area for 36 years, said that implementing a series of plans is a key ingredient to focus on over the next three years. “We’ve got a multiplicity of infrastructure plans for roads, sidewalks, bike paths, parks, trails and some of the stuff that isn’t very sexy related to sewers and water. We need to implement those plans, but we need to do it in a way that doesn’t impact the taxpayer,” said Findlater. “That’s a real challenge, but there are ways of doing that with partnerships and synergies.” Neis said that unlike the previous two elections, the biggest issue isn’t crystal clear this time around. “I don’t think there is a burning issue; I don’t think there is one single hot topic. The first time out there was the incorporation thing. The second time around there

Rosalind Neis

Doug Findlater was the name issue. This time I’m not hearing that there is any one driving force. Talking to people, everyone has common issues, but there’s not one that stands out amongst the others,” said Neis. She mentioned a few common issues that she has heard through conversations with residents, such as sidewalks around schools, safety for children, tax implications in the coming years and the overall condition of West Kelowna’s infrastructure. According to Findlater, his experience in West Kelowna governance makes him the best choice for mayor. “I have a long experience with the Westside governance process in

terms of putting together the framework for our municipality. I’m a teamwork person, I facilitate teamwork among members of council where we pull together and take a single vision,” said Findlater. “If I don’t support a council decision, it’s very important for a mayor to still represent the will of the majority. That’s a key thing: What’s done is done. I’ve demonstrated in the past three years that I have what it takes and have since the beginning, but I also think I’m getting better. I find I’m learning new things and gaining steam and confidence on a variety of issues.” Neis said her unique

leadership style is a quality that would make her the best choice for mayor. “My leadership style is very different from what we currently have. I’ve learned a lot in the last four years. There are things that I will do differently this time around that I didn’t do last time, (such as bringing) council together on issues that are important for the community,” said Neis. “I care about people. If a neighbourhood or a community really wants or really doesn’t want something, their voice has to be recognized. When you try to find common ground, you usually can. But that effort has to be put into it.” According to Neis,

she wasn’t taking the easy route when she decided to run for mayor. “I think I could’ve probably done not a whole lot and been reelected to council on my reputation. But I felt that, instead of sitting back and taking the easy road, I’m the kind of person that if I firmly believe in something, I will stand up for it and put my name and myself out on a limb and say this is where I think we need to go. “I wasn’t completely happy with the direction that our community was taking. There’s been a lot of indecision on council. There hasn’t been a real driving individual to just say, ‘We don’t need to look at this anymore, we

actually need to do something about it.’” Findlater said that campaigning this time around has been more difficult than years past. “I’m struggling with being a candidate at the same time as being a mayor because the mayor is a full-time job. What I have been doing is going to events. I have the signs up, they’ve been updated. I have brochures. I hope to get door to door as we go along but that’s really time dependent.” Neis’ campaign strategy will consist of meeting as many community members as possible, face to face. “It’s really the personal contact that I like: Actually talking to people door to door. It’s a great way to get a sense of what it is that people are after and what they feel about their community,” said Neis. “I haven’t been a big fan of signage. I do have signs made, but I’m really intending for people— if they choose to support me—to put them out on their lawn to show their individual support. That may be an unwise political decision, but as a person I just find that really distasteful to see all those signs.” Findlater said that residents can view his “comprehensive platform” at Neis is sharing her “brief outline” via e-mail.

Lawsuit only voice for judiciary


lawsuit brought forward by the Provincial Court Judge’s Association of British Columbia made headlines last week— “B.C. Provincial Court Judges Sue for a Pay Raise”. It was a hot button headline. The proposed pay raise, from a massive $231,138 salary to a more massive $245,526, is beyond most working people’s comprehension. Particularly in the context of public sector union contracts being negotiated with zero increases, this proposal appears obscene. There was some qualifying detail given in the news reports, but judging from comments electronically posted by readers on the Internet, very few saw past the headline. I read through comment after comment, slamming judges for their perceived greed. The odd comment in support received overwhelming thumbs down in the court of public opinion. I took the time to learn the facts behind the headline. I invite you to do the same by checking out the 2010 Judges Compensation Commission report and the provincial government’s response, which can be found at www. One key fact is that judges are special. They are not government employees. Quoting from the government response: “It is a fundamental principle

of the Canadian constitution that the courts must


Paul Hergott be independent of government…”. A 1994 Federal Court of Canada decision is quoted as follows: “(The) independence of the judiciary is an essential part of the fabric of our free and democratic society.” The supreme law of Canada states that “financial security” is an essential condition for judicial independence. The government response also notes: “… judges’ remuneration… must be established through a process that incorporates an independent, objective and effective judicial compensation commission that reports and makes recommendations on judicial remuneration.” Unlike unions that negotiate their pay, armed with the threat of striking, Canada’s constitution prohibits judges from negotiating their pay. That’s where the 2010 Judges Compensation Commission came in. The commission is truly independent, composed of two members of the provincial government, two members appointed by the Chief Judge of the provincial court, and a fifth mem-

ber, appointed by the other four, acting as chairperson. The job of the commission was to make recommendations on remuneration for provincial court judges for the period April 1, 2011, to March 31, 2014. A new commission is appointed every three years. It wasn’t the provincial court judges who asked the government for zero pay increase for 2011-12 and 2012-13, with a pay increase for 2013-14 of six per cent to keep up with the cost of living. No, it was the independent commission that made that recommendation. One of the factors the commission was required to consider is the financial position of the provincial government. The commission’s careful review of our province’s financial situation led to the recommendation of two years with zero increases, which in the context of inflation is a pay cut. It was on a projection of a balanced budget in the third year that the cost of living increase was recommended in that year. Unlike other commission reports that provincial governments sometimes choose to ignore, judicial compensation commission reports cannot be ignored. The law does not mandate the government to automatically implement the recommendations either, although: “…the government retains the power to depart

from the recommendations as long as it justifies its decision with rational reasons...” The government rejected the recommendation for the third year pay increase. Reasons for that rejection were given in the government response. The independent commission process was put in place to arrive at reasonable remuneration for the incredibly important job judges do. That process is undermined if commission recommendations are unreasonably disregarded. Judges are not suing for a pay increase. They are suing to assess the reasonableness of the government’s rejection of the independent commission’s recommendations. A lawsuit is the only mechanism available to judges to review whether or not the government’s reasons are rational. Without that mechanism, there is absolutely no accountability of the government. Without that mechanism, commission recommendations are meaningless. I am not taking sides with provincial court judges on this issue, by the way. I have insufficient knowledge of the law to predict whether or not the provincial government’s disregard for the commission’s report recommendations will be found to be lawful. I am on the side of justice, and justice mandates that provincial court judges be able to test that issue in a lawsuit (to be heard incidentally by totally independent justices of higher courts). Justice also mandates that the public be educated about the process to avoid judges being “judged” unfairly. You may notice that judges don’t publicly stick up for themselves. This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice specifically pertaining to your case.

Advertising guru shares the power of stories TERRY O’REILLY, host of the CBC radio program The Age Of Persuasion was the guest speaker at the recent Kelowna Chamber of Commerce luncheon. DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR


With the rise in popularity of TV programs like Mad Men, the ad industry’s image recently gained the Kodachrome finish it usually reserves for the products its shilling. There’s been a nostalgic review of ‘60s era Madison Avenue staples, such as the slickly dressed hedonists getting the best out of life, and convincing the masses to do it their way. Fashion houses even took a cue from the styledrenched, retro programming, while authors and radio show hosts launched new careers highlighting the tricks of their trades for a rapt audience. One of the most successful of that lot was Terry O’Reilly, host of the radio show The Age of Persuasion. The CBC radio program allows the award

winning advertiser a chance to showcase case studies from an industry that shaped our culture one ad-spot at a time. And when he digs a bit deeper into those files, O’Reilly continually shows how each actually reads like a page from our shared history rather than an infoblast that prompts pressure on the remote control’s mute button. When he stopped in Kelowna last week for a Chamber of Commerce speaking engagement, O’Reilly came packing such tales from both his own critically acclaimed body of work and what inspired him. The beauty of a good advert, he explained, is the development of a story readers can buy into. Rolls Royce, for example, is well known today for being the creme de la creme of the automotive industry, but the way it gained a standing in the North American market was with a sin-

gle page. Atop a sheet that launched the advertorial style of advertisement read the words; “At 60 miles an hour, the loudest noise in this Rolls Royce comes from the electric clock.” It was a headline that didn’t just draw the eye,

but made the reader think about both the car and the manufacturing philosophy in the carmaker. Deeper into the text, the company explained the effort they put into creating a luxurious ride. “It ran exactly once, in the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Wall

Street Journal and in Sunset Magazine, in April of 1958,” O’Reilly said. Total media and production costs of the ad: $25,000. Total sales as a result of the ad: $6 million. Back then, $6 million dollars only represented sales of 300 cars. But

Rolls-Royce could only manufacture 400 cars per year in total. The ad resulted in an 18-month waiting list for delivery, which one of the weightiest claims to fame of any print ad. The car company’s legacy is just as impressive as it has continued to be a coveted item among the most elite and wealthy of the world. So, what is it that made Rolls Royce, or any number of other products, “must haves” while others have faded into obscurity? “A great story will make you feel something,” said O’Reilly. “Decisions made on the heart 80 per cent of the time, so why is most marketing aimed at the head? Effective marketing can’t just be a blast of information. Smart advertisers create stories that make you feel something.” Everyone, he said, has

a story and O’Reilly said business owners would be well served by digging into it. “If your story is good, they will listen,” said O’Reilly. “Every product and every service has a genuine story built into it. Stories can add value, value creates margin, and margin creates profit.” O’Reilly explained that to find that story, if it isn’t always clear, business owners need to listen to their customers, ask them questions like: “What do you like about us, what don’t you like about us?” Don’t, in the meantime, ignore your own history. Think about why your company started, what was the vision of the founder and what have been some great successes along the way? Then offer a genuine story that makes people realize they must have the product you’re selling.

n the latest instalment of the hugely profitable franchise, Paranormal Activity 3 takes the haunting back to 1988, to give us the beginnings of the scariness. Two young sisters encounter what appears to be a benevolent invisible force in their home, but it turns hostile and begins tormenting the girls and their family. As a theatre manager, it is almost more entertaining watching people watch these movies, as they slink down into their seats preparing themselves for a frights which inevitably, yet at the same time unexpectedly, come. Surprisingly, early reviews have been favourable for a sequel, saying that it is more of the same, but still effectively scary. The Three Musketeers is a new take on the Alexandre Dumas tale, and with director Paul W.S. Anderson at the helm, it is going to be unlike any other version you have ever seen. Anderson is responsible for movies like Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil and Event Horizon, so don’t expect an accurate recreation of the original story, but rather a stylized 3D version with technology in it that would seem like science fiction in the time that the story is set. The cast includes Anderson’s wife and Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom


PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 is set 18 years prior to the original movie, when two young sisters and their family are tormented by an invisible force.


Rick Davis (Pirates of the Caribbean), Mads Mikkelson (Casino Royale) and Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds). In Johnny English Reborn, Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) returns as the man who would least likely be confused with James Bond. In Tibet as penance for an earlier botched mission, Johnny English is called back into action to thwart an international conspiracy. As the title suggests, Sure Shot Dombrowski

3 is the third instalment of the cult Canadian franchise, with Sure Shot promoted to general mManager. He’s out of therapy and back to what he does best—create mayhem. Once again, Sure Shot leads Team Canada against the U.S. in an international friendly. Then, against all odds, he helps start up a rival professional hockey league. He runs the office like he runs the bench…half cocked. As with the earlier films, it spoofs violence in hockey, but it seems even timelier now with current controversies over head shots and enforcers. God Bless Ozzy Osbourne is a musical documentary the follows the career of the wildest man in rock, from his begin-

nings in a working class family to his groundbreaking work in Black Sabbath and then as a solo artist. But it is his personal struggles with crippling self-doubt and his triumph over substance abuse profiled in the documentary that helps reveal the man behind the image. This film will be shown Wednesday, Oct. 26, 7 p.m., at the Paramount Theatre. The Paramount is also presenting an encore performance of the 25th anniversary of the Phantom Of The Opera on Saturday, Oct. 22, 1 p.m. Rick Davis is the manager of the Capitol Theatre in West Kelowna.

Fitting music tribute to ‘the man in black’ Christmas holiday giving can start now JOHNNY CASH; BOOTLEG VOL. III, LIVE AROUND THE WORLD (COLUMBIA)

Dawn Wilkinson CONTRIBUTOR

My husband started playing Christmas music on Sept. 25. “Only three more months until Christmas,” he chanted, totally oblivious to how most people might react: ‘Oh, no, I haven’t started shopping or baking . . .’ Scrooge turned from ‘uh humbug’ to ‘living the Christmas spirit 365 days a year.’ So following that literary example, now is as good a time as any to turn your thoughts to making the holiday season meaningful. Does your heart go out to struggling families? You can sponsor a family by giving food, gifts for each family member or money for the host agency to buy needed items. These families are working with local nonprofit agencies to improve their lives. Contact Kelowna Community Food Bank, Kelowna Community Resources, and The Salvation Army. Use your shopping skills to meet basic needs of others. Blankets, socks, towels, linens and hygiene products are distributed by Kelowna’s Gospel Mission.

Scarves, mitts, toques, lip balm, toothpaste, deodorant, combs as well as individually wrapped chocolates and candies are given to patients at the McNair Unit in Kelowna General Hospital. Why not volunteer as a family to serve Christmas dinner? Decorating, table setting, and room cleanup are also part of the festivities. Meals on a large scale are served by Kelowna’s Gospel Mission, Victory Life Fellowship, and First United Church. Financial donations are welcomed throughout our community by nonprofit organizations directly involved with needy men, women and children. Take a collection at work and give as a group. Buy one less present for each of your own family members and give the proceeds away. Begin thinking now about how you want to help brighten our community with thoughtfulness during the holiday season. An easy way to check out organizations in the Central Okanagan is through, Community Info Search. Help make this Christmas season memorable. Dawn Wilkinson is coordinator of the Community Information & Volunteer Centre, Kelowna Community Resources, located at 120-1735 Dolphin Ave. 250-763-8008

Bob Dylan and Neil Young have both released more than a few of these so called Bootleg albums that explores their past recordings and concerts. While Dylan and Young are both still alive and therefore have the benefit of overseeing their archival material, Johnny Cash does not. But this third edition of rare and unreleased recordings of Cash’s huge legacy is worthwhile for the committed fan. This two CD, 53 song set, subtitled Alive Around The World, finds Cash performing at various concert halls. The most significant gigs here include a nine song set from The Newport Folk Festival in 1964 as introduced by Pete Seeger and a 13-song White House showcase for president Richard Nixon from 1970 which finds the ever reverent Cash in a state of religious bliss and piety. There is a one off live song recorded at a CBS Record Convention where Cash offers a warm and brilliant take of the classic train song City Of New Orleans that is worthy of being released as a single for radio play. The sound is a tad


Bruce Mitchell

dodgy on some of the earlier tunes from the mid 1950s and early ‘60s at The Big D Jamboree and The New River Ranch, but even these songs are worthwhile in illustrating Cash’s growing abilities with his music and playfulness with the audiences. The live gig in Vietnam finds Cash in front of some extremely well lubricated soldiers on relief proving Cash was universally accepted wherever he went. A fine archival release probably best suited for hard core fans. B


The 84-year-old Harry Belafonte has just released his personal memoirs, titled My Song, while HBO has recently completed a documentary film called Sing Your Song. Hence the creation of this 16-track soundtrack CD Sing Your Song: The

Music, taken from the film that captures many of Belafonte’s memorable signpost songs from a lengthy and storied career. Although he was born in Harlem, Belafonte grew up in Jamaica where he grew a love of island music. When he became part of the 1950s folk boom, no one had ever heard anything like him and although his music may seem quaint today, way back then he was considered exotic with his calypso music, a generation before world beat became a global phenomenon. Included are million selling hits such as Jamaica Farewell, Matilda, Banana Boat Song (Day-O), Scarlet Ribbons (For Her Hair), Island In The Sun (the title song to his big hit movie) and Jump Down Spin Around (used to great humorous effect in the film Bettlejuice). Moreover Belafonte was renowned for his egalitarian and political and social consciousness which makes his story all the more commanding. B+

Her first was from 2005 and included material from her first four albums. This follow-up captures dance mixes, club mixes and extended mixes from the likes of Kaskade, Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Linus, Alex Suarez over ten tunes where the mixologists take great liberty with the originals just like they are supposed to do. I find it ironic that the CD title B In The Mix barely includes Spears other than for her first initial as lately Spears seems like a mere guest on her own albums as the producers have taken over using her as the marketable figurehead. Anyway, big hits such as Gimme More, Piece Of Me, Womanizer, Circus etc. are all here along with the radio edit of Criminal that kicks of the collection. C+


These two Judas Priest anthologies have been co-released for fans who want different things from

their superstars. The Chosen Few refers to the hard rock and metal stars who have chosen the songs for this generous 17 track album. However, Judas Priest fans such as Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, Lemmy Kilmister dwell on their favourite album tracks instead of fan favourites and hits ,which leads to a somewhat puzzling and unusual song selection. To their credit, there are crib notes from the metal star selectors explaining their choices which adds some light to the proceedings. As a result, there is Slayer Kerry King’s choice of Delivering The Goods and Steve Via’s Dissident Aggressor which are taken over some of Judas Priests more popular hits (they have had more of them in their native Britain than in North America). Maybe to hedge their bets, Sony music has also released Single Cuts with 19 tunes that were prepared for radio and the rare edits that are sometimes hard to find. A slew of head banger music for the uber Judas Priest fan. C+

or those of us who might think The Big Year is a laugh a minute—and why not considering the stellar cast, notably Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson—you’ll be disappointed. The Big Year refers to a bird watching competition where (mostly) grown men virtually give up a year of their lives to be the best birder in the world by personally viewing the most species of birds—yeah, I know, riveting stuff! Unless of course you’re over 40 and a bird watcher, then you’ll find The Big Year a big deal. Sadly, while I’m way over 40, I’m not a bird watcher. Oh sure, I like

There were only a handful of folks at the 6:55 p.m. show I went to so I think the word’s out on this one—the bird may not be the word this time around.

School unveils solar power installation The Kelowna Waldorf School has completed the installation of their photovoltaic system, marked by an official unveiling earlier this month. Among those on hand for the festivities at the school, located at 429 Collett Rd., were Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd, Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson and Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan. Shepherd said she was pleased to see this project completed, reminding people Kelowna was designated a “solar city” two years ago. “Our city receives more than 2,000 hours of sunshine a year making it a great location for solar energy technology,” Shepherd said.

“We have pioneering solar enterprises such as the Best Western Hotel, known for its solar hot water installation and other energy retrofits.” The mayor also spoke about the city’s installation of 100 Carmanah EverGEN solar-powered area lights to be installed in parks, and various locations throughout Kelowna. This initiative is supported by a federal government and municipal funding, along with donations from Carmanah. Cannan said he was pleased to see the school supporting its students in learning about progressive technologies. Thomson added he has sees the school’s solar project as a tangible ex-

ample of positive action towards more sustainable power production. In March 2011, Solar B.C. awarded the Kelowna Waldorf School a $20,000 grant to install a photovoltaic system. Waldorf is the only school within the Central Okanagan School District and the sole independent school to have received this funding. The school chose NOVA Independent Resources Ltd., a Kelowna company, to install a system comprised of 19 solar panels. This system has the capacity to generate 4.37 kW, far surpassing the 2.5 kW requirement of the grant. The installation makes the Waldorf School a centre of education for green power pro-


PARENTS, students, staff and invited political dignitaries were on hand earlier this month for the official unveiling of Kelowna Waldorf Schools’s new solar power energy system. duction, both for students and community members alike. Pedagogical administrator and Grade 7 and 8 teacher, Cindy Tay-

lor said: “This solar project has been a perfect opportunity for the adults of our school community to model for the students how we, as individ-

uals, can take the initiative to make positive changes in our local environment, and that these actions might reverberate through the whole of Kelowna and

beyond.” The Kelowna Waldorf School has existed for nearly 30 years, currently offering programs from pre-school to Grade 8.

Kelowna student receives Coast Capital Savings citizenship award

Kelowna’s Superstore named as finalist for community service award In recognition of supporting their local community, the Real Canadian Superstore location in Kelowna has been named a top 10 finalist for the Canadian Grocer’s Community Service Award. The winner will be announced in

1-800-665-4143 • SUMMERLAND, B.C.

Passed away at her beloved home on October 11, 2011 at 94 years of age. Erica, born to “Willi” and Gracie Willis on March 23, 1917 in Kelowna, lived an adventurous life filled with travel, art, literature and good friends. Her early years were spent attending school in the Kelowna Mission, often making her way there on horseback. Right up until her death, Erica loved telling stories about her childhood, when lights were so rare in West Kelowna that she and her dear friend Becky could send smoke signals to each other from hill tops and could skate each winter on the lake. Erica and her family ran an orchard beyond what is now Cedar Creek Park and Erica recalled tough times during the Depression when her father grew cucumbers amidst the fruit trees so they could painstakingly harvest the seeds and sell them. Married at 18, Erica left Kelowna with her first husband, Ulrich Minion, and settled back East. It was during this time that Erica met renowned Canadian artist F.H. Varley and modelled for him for numerous paintings, most notably “The Unknown Woman.” Erica and Ulrich divorced and Erica returned to Kelowna where she met James “Jim” Leach, whom she married. Jim and Erica subsequently moved to Oshawa, Ontario to be near Jim’s daughter, Karen. Together, Jim and Erica built a home there and lived for many years. In the 1960’s Erica and Jim returned to Kelowna and lovingly hand-built their home, “Combewood”, a beautiful place with many stone walls, beautiful rock paths and a spectacular rock fireplace. Each stone was chosen from the property or surrounding hills. They filled their home with books, art and Kingsmill pottery and later, Erica would cultivate an extensive garden that she adored. Erica and Jim left their home for a good part of the 1970s to sail across the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pacific with Jim’s daughter Karen and future son-in-law, Arthur. They especially loved Greece and spent months there. Years later at the age of eighty, Erica returned with her granddaughters to her favourite parts of Greece, thrilled that the walking trails through the oregano-scented hills she had tread so many years before were unchanged. Erica doted on the horses she pastured across the road from her lakeshore home and loved nothing more than riding up into the hills, picnicking at one of her many favourite spots and dining on her homemade “riding cake” with a smoky billycan of tea. She rode until she was in her late seventies and after that chose to walk instead, always with her dog, Belle, by her side. In her eighties, Erica lost her home in the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Park Fire. Devastated but not defeated, Erica was able to rebuild a replica of “Combewood” with a copy of the plans of the original home. While so much was lost in the fire, Erica was delighted when much of her garden survived and then thrived, calling her garden the “Phoenix rising from the ashes.” In her last years, Erica lived a quiet life in her home with her family, content to read, walk, and spend hours watching her beloved lake. She took great joy in welcoming 4 great-grandchildren into her life and loved reading to them and listening to them “chatter like little birds.” Erica will be remembered for her dignity, graciousness, wisdom and devotion to her friends and loved ones. She was a fabulous chef and her diverse recipes are one of the many things that will keep our memory of her vivid. Erica was pre-deceased by her husband Jim, parents Herald Arthur “Willi” Willis and local artist Gracie Willis, sister Pat and son-in-law Arthur. Erica is survived by her daughter Karen, granddaughters Sarah (Colin) and Arianna (Woody) and her great-grand children. A plaque will be placed with her parents at St. Andrews Anglican Church Cemetery in the Lower Mission. A private gathering for family and friends will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Erica’s name may be made to the BCSPCA, 3785 Casorso Road Kelowna BC V1W 4M7, or the Kelowna Gospel Mission, PO Box 22087 Capri PO Kelowna BC V1Y 9N9. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family c/o Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the care of
