‘Boat’ design fitting for new yacht club

Making their plea for Day’s MP seat

Kathy Michaels

STAFF REPORTER

ASSISTANT EDITOR

A glimpse into the future of Kelowna’s waterfront is now available. Kelowna Yacht Club representatives revealed Wednesday the Meiklejohn Architects proposal which they believe to be the best of three designs put forward by local architects. “It’s quite unique—it has a nautical theme to it,” said Jim Kay the club’s general manager. “It’s designed to look like a large boat.” While the creative tack of the artistic architectural rendering was a hit with the club’s selection committee, Kay explained there were a number of other factors that went into the decision process, such as general functionality and the floor plan. It was the latter two reasons that led the selection committee to choose the Meiklejohn offering, and make a move contrary to the opinion of a number of the club’s members who voted for another design. Approximately 13 per cent of the 1,000-plus club members voted on the renderings and 49 per cent of the votes cast were for an alternative design. Departure from the voters’ opinion isn’t anticipated to be a problem, Kay said, as the new design will ultimately amount to a much grander version of the Kelowna Yacht Club than the current waterfront building. “We’re hoping it’s going to be a landmark piece in the community,” said Kay. “We want to maintain consistency with what’s around us and visual appeal from all four sides of the building.” The new design is also roughly three times the size of the existing building, which was built in 1945. “It’s tired and old,” he said. “The new building will be state of the art, with lots of appeal and functionality.” Also unique will be the public component added to the new clubhouse. “There’s going to be a public restaurant people can enjoy, and we are going to an open banquet and meeting spaces for the public.” The new building will be built where the Water Street Seniors Centre sits today, and the old building will be bulldozed to make way for the eventual phase 2 of Stuart Park.

Okanagan-Coquihalla voters who live in West Kelowna and Peachland had their first chance to see the six men vying to succeed long-time Conservative MP Stockwell Day together Wednesday. The candidates, who participated in an election forum in Peachland, took questions from members of the 200-strong audience, covering a myriad of topics ranging from law and order and the economy to health care and seniors issues. Dan Albas, the Conservative candidate kicked off the evening thanking popular long-time former Tory MP Stockwell Day for his public service. Albas said he planned to continue Day’s “strong” record of constituency work if elected. “I want to listen to people, take their views to government and be accountable,” he said. “And I want to remind people in government to respect the people they represent.” NDP candidate David Finnis, who lives in Summerland but has worked See Plea A6

Health minister wants ground level view of medical system

‘‘

Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If you build it, they will come is the message of the hour for new B.C. Health Minister Michael de Jong, who toured construction at Kelowna General Hospital on Wednesday with local MLA Norm Letnick. Having taken over the portfolio last month, de Jong was said to be touring the area with an eye to learning about what’s needed on the ground in the medical system. He found a warm reception in Kelowna where the new Centennial Pavilion and catheterization laboratory offered signs of new innovation in the aged hospital, even as it is undergoing its current facelift. “It’s kind of heart-

warming when you go through a campus like this to hear the acknowledgement, to hear the thanks and at the same time bear witness to some of the extraordinary procedural work and some of the development that is not just leading in terms of the Okanagan, it’s leading the country,” said de Jong.

Harangued by medical staff the day before when he visited the cramped quarters at Vernon Jubilee, de Jong appeared to have bounced back Wednesday. The new minister said he was specifically impressed by construction workers’ efforts and understood the cat lab to be a positive first step en route to a cardiac centre which should serve the needs of the entire area. The minister stressed that he understood the physical structures he toured are nothing without the people who will run them, but said recruitment is not expected to be a problem, national doctor shortage or not. “One of the great things about the Okanagan is it tends to be a bit of a magnet for attracting clin-

icians, professionals,” said de Jong. “The make-up of people who comprise our health teams now is very different than it was 25 years ago. “So doctors, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, the health science professionals, the homecare workers, I mean these are entire teams of people (we need)…and we’re training more of them.” The new UBCO medical school and the nursing program are expected to ease the recruitment burden as the government continues to try and push a rural medicine agenda, taking training outside the city centres. De Jong said he believes the multi-year construction effort on the KGH site, which is expected to wrap up by

the families that require them,” he said, acknowledging he’s aware the area is among the oldest communities in Canada. Letnick stressed preventative measures, like pushing a healthier lifestyle, can seriously cut health costs as well. De Jong said he would

be talking about the potential of adding a West Kelowna health centre as he toured the area that day, but noted that the initiative is also about balancing the government’s enthusiasm to build with the taxpayer’s ability to pay. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

▼ TRANSIT

Mayor puts heat on BC Transit to help avoid bus driver strike Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna politicians are getting an earful from area residents calling in their concerns about a looming transit strike, so Mayor Sharon Shepherd passed their messages onto the B.C. Transit representative who was in council chambers for Monday’s meeting . “We’re very worried about

the potential transit strike,” said Shepherd. “It’s such a needed service in our community, whatever could be done, should be done, but we have no say.” Shepherd learned the city isn’t the only one who doesn’t have a say. Steve Harvard, B.C. Transit’s regional manager for the southern Interior, said the provincial organization also has its

hands tied. “B.C. Transit is not part of that agreement—it’s between First Canada and the employee union,” Harvard said. Shepherd pointed out that it’s B.C. Transit that awarded the contract to First Canada, so they should theoretically have some say in the way the company deals with its employees. Harvard said that wasn’t the case, but if there was a

strike, they would have to take over essential services, like Handidart. The rest of the bus riding community, however, would have to fend for itself. Whether transit workers will be parking local buses as a means of wrangling for what they call a fair contract will become clear at the end of April when the employee union and First Canada (First Bus) go

through mediation. “That will happen April 27 or 28,” said Les Milton, president of the Amalgamated Transit union, after 95 per cent of the union membership rejected the last contract offered to them. “Then, after that, we’ll go to our membership and discuss next steps…but this group of employees has done everything we can do to stave off a

strike.” The mediation is a lastditch effort to make contract talks work. The crux of the matter, he explained, is that the company that operates the B.C. Transit contract is treating drivers as though they’re government employees, while extending none of the benefits—such as higher wages and job security—to them.

This week, he’s over in the Kootenays at a bull trout derby, so I wasn’t able to connect with him. However, he does say the world record rainbow is about 60 pounds, caught in a Saskatchewan lake last year. And while it was no competition with Sutherland’s catch, it was a pretty exciting day during spring break for 15-yearold Dustin Pidherny of Summerland, who caught a 14-pound rainbow trout in Okanagan Lake. There are definitely some decent-sized trout in the big lake, and the increased kokanee numbers certainly would have helped them reach such a size. Most of the shore spawning kokanee are so small, even when they mature, that most anglers return them to the water. That’s not recommended because they frequently don’t survive. But it’s the good numbers of these shore spawners that probably have contributed to growing great big trout like these. That’s another good reason it’s really important we do all we can to bring back kokanee numbers in Okanagan Lake by

Facing the reality of death and the promise of eternity O

n Sunday, March 27, I was feeling very uncomfortable and was having difficulty breathing. I did not want to stop breathing so I went to the emergency for a checkup. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon, so I did not have to wait very long. I received prompt attention. The doctor told me I had to be admitted. I was not ready for this, but the doctor knows best. After several tests the doctors discovered I have a very weak heart and it could stop beating at any time. This was the reason for my shortness of breath. I had the privilege of being treated by two of the most outstanding cardiologists in B.C. One of those cardiologists informed me that

After my eighth day in hospital, the cardiologist informed me that he could not do anything more for me at this time so I was discharged. I want to take this opportunity to thank the staff at 2 East at KGH for their Kindness, Goodness and Hospitality…that spells KGH. The cardiologist was very candid in his comments to me: “Mr. Baldeo, you are a very sick man…and you are

dying.” Then he said, we all have to die. I replied, “Yes doctor, we are all terminally ill and some have longer terms than others.” There was once a man who thought “terminally ill” meant going to the airport to die. On my second day the doctor asked me a very pointed question. He said, “Mr. Baldeo, if you become ill at midnight and we have to treat you, would you like to be resuscitated or should we just keep you comfortable and let you go?” Without hesitation I replied, “Please let me go.” So these three letters were written on my file: DNR.

I am not able to accept visitors at this time so please forgive me. I would love to see you but in due time, when I am feeling some better and feel a little stronger. My three daughters and grandchildren have visited and they sense Grandpa is not feeling well. One of them wrote me a beautiful poem.

My sister called me from Trinidad and said, “Let not your heart be troubled.” This is a simple but penetrating truth. I am not accepting this death sentence at this time. I trust that our mighty God will take me through the valley of the shadow of death. However, I am fully aware that my day to be ushered into eternity will come. But do not weep me for I have gone for my coronation where I will meet with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

But he said minority parliaments can work and the NDP is willing to find common ground with other parties. Liberal candidate John Kidder, who rejected Albas’s claim that this is an

“unnecessary� election, said Canadians are voting because the Conservative government of Stephen Harper was found in contempt of parliament. “The (former conservative) government has a profound disrespect for democracy,� said Kidder, referring to the contempt finding, as well as an advertising scandal stemming back to the 2006 election and fractious relationship with other parties in Parliament.

The other two candidates, West Kelowna realtor Sean Upshaw, who calls himself an “independent Conservative,� and Dietrich Wittel, a medical doctor, are both running after failing to win the Conservative nomination. Upshaw said if he wins, he plans to sit with the Tories and support them. As a result, he spent much of the night explaining what the Conservatives would do if reelected to govern. “I’m not a conservative out of convenience but out of conviction,� he declared. “And that makes a difference. He claims the Conservative nomination process was rigged to give Albas, a former Penticton city councillor, the nomination.

would put money into affordable housing and health care instead. An NDP government would also strengthen the Canada Pension Plan to help seniors, added Finnis. Bouchard said a Green government would provide money for home refits to make them more energy efficient, remove income tax for everyone earning less than $20,000 per year and introduce a carbon tax. Albas touted the Tory economic proposals in the budget tabled just before the election was called but added “government is a responsibility, not a benefit program.� And he pointed to his party’s track record, including lowering the GST by two per cent, introducing income-splitting for couples, introduction of the tax-free savings account and its vow to increase health care spending by six per cent per year. While all the candidates were given turns to address all the questions, there was little direct interaction between them. But Albas’s reference to dealing with drug addicts through jail when asked about the possibility of a safe-injection site opening in the Okanagan did prompt Kidder to directly address him. “Dan, that is about the cruelest thing I have ever heard,� said Kidder, saying drug addiction should be addressed as a health issue, not a crime issue. He, Finnis and Bouchard all pointed to repeated expert support for the Insight safe-injection site in downtown Vancouver. “It’s a health issue and (the safe-injection

site) saves us money,� said Finnis. The Conservative, Liberal, Green Party and NDP candidates also said that their respective par-

Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

With questions from the audience at Wednesday’s all-candidate forum in Peachland covering everything from jail, safe-injection drug sites, the economy, health care and seniors issues, there was one question that left the two candidates claiming to be Conservatives in silence. Conservative Party candidate Dan Albas, and independent Sean Upshaw, who calls himself an independent Conservative and says he will sit with the Tories if elected, strangely had nothing to say about the controversial long-gun registry. Elimination of the registry, a lightening rod for the Tories in recent years, has been repeatedly promised by the former governments of Stephen Harper and pushed for by former Okanagan-Coquihalla Conservative MP Stockwell Day. But when given a chance to reiterate opposition to the controversial registry, Albas, and Upshaw, declined the opportunity. Their chance came and went after retired police officer George Neilson put a question to NDP candidate David Finnis. Neilson said he knew the Conservative’s position (to abolish it) and disagreed with it. He said he knew the Liberal position (to keep it). But he wanted to know Finnis’s position because the last NDP caucus in Ottawa had been “wishy-washy� on the future of the registry, a registry Neilson said is supported by every police association in Canada and all but six police chiefs in this country. Finnis said he personally supports the registry and said he was disappointed some NDP MPs did not. He said Canadians have to register their cars and boats, so they should also have to register their guns. The question was then thrown open to the other five candidates, with Liberal John Kidder and Dan Bouchard of the Green Party expressing support as well. But Albas and Upshaw remained silent despite the fact the Conservative government of Stephen Harper has repeatedly made it clear the registry will be abolished if it wins a majority.

▼ POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION

Data warehouse offers student insights L ‘‘

ast fall, I was appointed to sit on a provincial government committee on data standards and definitions. Essentially, this committee looks at what kind of data we collect, how we collect it and in some cases who has access to this data and what it is used for. Just about all the colleges and universities in the province of B.C collect and send data to the provincial government, where it is stored in the appropriately-named Central Data Warehouse. This data is used by both the schools and the government to report on a lot of interesting stuff (at least that’s what I think). Some of this information was highlighted in a report last week which listed a number of student transitions project fast facts. The first fact showed the B.C. Secondary School graduation rate. This is essentially the number of high school

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens students who actually graduated from Grade 12. Currently the number sits at 80 per cent with little change except for the male student graduation rate—it went from 77 per cent in 2005-06 to 83 per cent in 2009-10. The info sheet also looked at the percentage of Grade 12 graduates who were satisfied that their education prepared them for college or university. On average, about 72 per cent indicated their past education prepared them to transition to postsecondary. Fast fact number three showed how many high school students went directly to college or university right after gradu-

ation which currently sits at 53.6 per cent. Since 2005, across B.C. these transition rates have increased by 2.7 per cent. Transition rates in the Okanagan area grew faster at 4.7 per cent. This is the type of information I look at all the time because it gives me a pretty good idea of what to expect in regards to demand for Okanagan College programs and courses. But high school transition rates aren’t the only transition rates I look at. Fast fact number four provided information on the cumulative transition rates to college or university. These are high school graduates who took time off between high school and college. Over a period of time, this report shows how a graduating classes transition to post-secondary. For example, in B.C. 49.9 per cent of the graduating class of 2004 went

straight to post-secondary. A year later, another 10.8 per cent of this same class enrolled, followed by another 4.6 per cent a year later. By 2009, this 49.9 per cent grew to 72.4 per cent, telling us that from this specific graduating class many had registered at a college or university. Fast-fact number five looked at the same data including the per cent of students who did not attend college or university. This information is also important because it gives college and university administrators the ability to see how young adults transition into col-

lege as they move through their 20s. B.C. data shows us that the older an individual gets the least likely they will go back to school. Another interesting fast fact was the how many of us over the age of 15 hold a high school graduation diploma and a post-secondary credential. With data from Stats Canada this chart showed a provincial comparison. B.C. rated that highest at 80 per cent followed by Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Newfoundland. Next week, I’ll review the rest of the report, which looks at Aboriginal students, high achievers and some more interesting stuff. Stay tuned.

Plea for tips from public Cash, cocaine found in suitcase in drive-by shooting case ▼ DRUG SEIZURE

Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

A parolee from Kelowna was among eight people arrested as part of a police investigation into a group that was allegedly trafficking cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. RCMP said Tuesday the arrests all came in a 24 hour period surrounding the search of six homes and one storage locker at various locations in the Lower Mainland, conducted on April 4. As a result of the investigation, police say 20 kilograms of cocaine, one kilogram of methamphetamine, two kilograms of marijuana, two tons of a highly toxic, highly flammable, extremely corrosive chemical which could be used for the production of ecstasy and a large pill press were seized, said Const. Michael McLaughlin. Other dangerous chemicals were found stored in an East Vancouver home, near a res-

The Kelowna RCMP have asked for the public’s assistance, seeking any information leading to the arrest of individuals involved in a brazen drive-by shooting last summer. On Sept. 10, 2010, a shooting occurred in the downtown core of Kelowna on Leon and Abbott. The unknown occupants of a black 1982 Chevy Blazer fired multiple gun shots at a grey 2009 Nissan Sentra. The male driver of the Nissan Sentra received a non-life threatening gunshot wound. The Blazer was later found in West Kelowna and had been set on fire.

Three men who were on federal parole, including 44-year-old Lance Trevor Pettman, of Kelowna, were arrested in the Lower Mainland as a result of the investigation.

They have since been returned to prison and will likely be facing drug charges, along with two other men and three women arrested as part of the investigation. “This investigation is by no means over,” said McLaughlin. “The RCMP Great-

▼ OUR VIEW

Change begins with just one vote The federal leadership debates have come and gone, and after several days of over analysis, the recurring theme of this year’s campaign continues to be voter apathy. But just what is apathy and why does it seem so hard to get some Canadians to understand the value of getting out to the polls? If you watched last week’s debates—even one of them —you’re probably interested enough in politics that you will

get out and vote. For those of us who cherish our democratic rights, perhaps part of our civic duty is to engage others who don’t share our enthusiasm. There are a lot of reasons to add our voices to the clamour of thousands of others. The common excuse that one vote can’t make a difference doesn’t make sense. Democracy has never been about a single vote deciding the fate of a wider community. We vote in order to provide a push in the direction we want

CLASSIFIEDS

government to go. The ballot booth is not a place for an all-or-nothing approach. It takes time and effort to eventually get the great wheels of government moving. The longer you take to get started, the longer you can expect it to take for any changes to be made. This is critically important for people who feel unempowered by the system. As if every party is a shade of grey and any change in government only results in subtle and

superficial change. The truth is, even mainstream parties have divisively different platforms. Part of the problem is the generally anemic discourse. Each of us has issues in our daily lives that are directly influenced by the federal government. Whether it’s a passionate belief in the need to change our environmental policies or a heartfelt opinion about supporting our military or legalizing marijuana, someone has to start the push for change.

Bank accounts of 30-something’s don’t reflect ‘strong Canada’

S

o much attention has been put on whether youth, ethnic minorities and a litany of other groups are going to vote this election, that I’m feeling a bit left out. Where in political platforms is the pandering to disgruntled 30-somethings who still can’t boast an end to student loan debt accrued in the years when the future looked bright? Is there nothing for those who hit an upward mobility roadblock in cities where the cost of real estate has increased by 230-plus per cent in the last decade? Should our related desire to update wardrobes several times a year, instead of investing in anything that come with the words “tax write-off,”

really make us irrelevant? For the record, power people of varying political stripes, you shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss my kind. Our bout of apathy was rocked in the ’90s, so we usually vote. In fact, back to my wardrobe point, if you were to invite us to a photo-op with the proviso of wearing a costume relevant to our station in life—as the Conservatives did for ethnic minorities—we’d be enthusiastic, accessorized and ready. But you’d see right away, unfortunately, that our spring lines are a bit

too similar to fall selec-

KATHARTIC tions because we’re get-

ting poorer. All this talk of a stable, strong Canada hasn’t been reflected in our bank accounts, Kathy which quite honestMichaels ly have showed a weakening balance from month-to-month for the last three years. A high likelihood of being a notch in Stats Canada’s unemployment surveys is one reason, but for those who have dodged the layoff bullet more deftly, there’s the whole issue that wages haven’t risen since the unspeakable recession rolled into town.

Strangely, that didn’t impact rising gas, food and everything-else prices. Worse yet, even the people we’ve traditionally sponge off are having problems, whether you believe it or not. And I know the Prime Minster, at the very least, doesn’t. I watched the debates and between witty barbs, I saw his earnest looks and heard him say all was OK. In fact we’re faring better than the US, but the apple and orange comparisons were a bit off-putting. I mean, we’re economically more sound than Cambodia too, but that’s no more a worthy measure than the US these days. That’s neither here, nor there, I suppose. Optimism reigns supreme

going forward and our dear leader has said things are getting better. There are fighter jets on the way, to prove it. Nothing speaks of a rosy financial future like making purchases without a price tag. I get it, Mr. Harper. I will have my Julia Roberts a la Pretty Woman episode one day too, as soon as my creditors get off my ass. Until then, I’ll content myself with carrying around my locally acquired new passport through all the nice new bike paths and roads the government helped fund. Maybe I haven’t been left out after all. Kathy Michaels is a staff reporter for the Kelowna Capital News. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

â&#x2013;ź COURT PROCESS

Procedures dissuade filing small claim To the editor: Recently, an article in your paper shed light on our court systemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Kelowna law court building in particular portrayed by smiling school children and authoritiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;very entertaining. Allow me to mention a negative experience. More than two years ago I had an issue with a local repair shop. I had no choice but to involve Small Claims Court. After obtaining information, the claim was submitted, accepted and in process. Knowing the wheel of justice grinds slowly, after two months I inquired, only to be told by the chief clerk (J.P.) that the authentic sig-

nature of the postal employee, who delivered the claim to said business, was needed. This took time, coming from Ottawa, but was submitted, involving extra costs and silence. After a long interval I checked back and was told to submit the claim in triplicate, even though said claim had been accepted and not challenged. To be brief, I went through the system, tried legal aidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no option; talked to a lawyer and was told a claim for legal service has to be in excess of $3,000 (my expense was $300). Then I tried MLA Ombudsman and finally wrote and sent information to the chief judge in Kelowna. The response was immediate, but only to be handed back to a lower level.

Apparently the system was required to inform the chief judge of B.C. and a letter was promptly received from Gene Jamieson, assistant of the chief judge, blaming me for not being precise enough about my intentions. I could no longer go on, signed off and sent him a get-well card, dated Jan. 18, 2011. In conclusion, I hope that you find it worthwhile to let your readers know about my problem.

ing to actually take the advice of their city staff, right?!). The parting words of Mayor Sharon Shepherd from that historic night still resonate through our vacant downtown streets: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Śthere has to be a better plan out there.â&#x20AC;? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope there is, in fact, a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;betterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plan out there, or any plan. Spring is in the air and the hundreds of thousands of tourists who will drive into â&#x20AC;&#x153;the jewel of the B.C. Interiorâ&#x20AC;? from the west are going to be met with the holiday night-

mare trifecta: Countless billboards blocking the initial view of Okanagan Lake, several boarded-up businesses directly downtown on Harvey Avenue, and dozens of â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Leaseâ&#x20AC;? signs blanketing our downtown core like wild mushrooms, representing the broken dreams of business owners who were counting on the kind of foot traffic who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask you for spare change every time you need to step over them. As a brief aside, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to hundreds of cities around the world and

A11

have never seen a boarded up McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Burger King, Tim Hortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Husky, or Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, let alone all fiveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that has to be some kind of record. In any case, we do acknowledge the fact that discussions are about to take place regarding (re) vitalizing downtown with what to do, how to do it, who is to do it, when, etc, and that is something, albeit perhaps akin to taking the first step in the planning journey of 1,000 miles (when the city was already at mile 999 just 13 months ago).

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just hope that the silent majority isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so silent this time, and that whatever plan is finally agreed on, it has the kind of scope and tenacity required to drastically increase the number of businesses and residents into the downtown core. Skating rinks and angled parking are nice and all, but the state of our downtown core is a real problem that is going to take a real solution and a real commitment.

â&#x2013;ź FEDERAL ELECTION

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones who pay â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;corporate taxesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; To the editor: Who pays corporate taxes? You do! Many people like corporate taxes because it seems a cost-free way to finance government programs. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. No corporation has ever paid a tax nor can they. Corporations are simply legal fictions that facilitate workers, investors and customers in producing and consuming goods and services. When a corporation is taxed, the money comes out of the pockets of one or more of these three groups. If a corporation is in a monopoly or semi-monopoly position, its customers pay the tax through higher prices. Those who work for corporations may pay corporate taxes through lower wages.

Finally, the real targets of the advocates of higher corporate taxes, investors (including your pension plan or RRSP), might pay through reduced profits or dividends. Of the three, investors are the least likely to pay because multinational corporations can easily move profits from high tax jurisdictions to low tax ones. In Canada, we benefit from the taxes collected on profits moved to their subsidiaries here by corporations in high tax jurisdictions such as the US. Who pays then? A C.D. Howe Institute study shows that, for the most part, a corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employees pay corporate taxes through lower wages dir-

ectly and also through lowered productivity caused by reductions in productivity enhancing investments. So, why do Mr. Ignatieff and Mr. Layton want to raise corporate taxes? Because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying them. After all, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be seeing a deduction from your wages on your T4 for corporate taxes. Your utility bill wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show how much lower your rates would be were it not for corporate taxes. Mr. Ignatieff wants to finance his promises by lowering your wages and raising your utility bills by an amount you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be told. Peter Neville, Kelowna

Harper continues to use Express yourself minority government as a threat To the editor: During the English language leaders debate Mr. Harper stated that we will likely have another election soon, if he is not given a majority government. This can be perceived as a threat from him to the Canadian public. It also illustrates his unwillingness to negotiate with other parties.

If Mr. Harper is elected with a majority government it is highly unlikely that it will be by a majority of the popular voteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Conservative popular vote was 38 per cent in the 2008 election. If a majority government is formed with a minority of the votes, no one will gain. The will of a minority imposed upon the majority will only de-

stabilize an already bad situation. Canada is a country with a great diversity of views and opinions. Our diversity is our strength and through reasoned discussion and debate we can arrive at a direction for Canada that respects all Canadians. Dave Carter, Castlegar

Key to weight loss is to stay away from boxed foods B ‘‘ eing a practitioner that is dedicated to wellness, one of the most common questions I get asked is, “How do I lose weight and keep it off?” Let me separate the hype from the science and give you a simple and doable formula for success. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a safe “quick weight loss” program. But I assure you, that if you persevere with this plan, I guarantee you lose the weight you want to. The World Health Organization has deemed obesity as an epidemic here in North America. This is due to one sin-

and sugar seemed to be an everyday occurrence in our daily intake of nutrients. If one was to simply to remove these components from our diet and do nothing else, weight loss is indeed inevitable. In addition to this, a good rule of thumb in determining if a certain food is riddled with carbohydrates or not is simply this: Did it come out of a box? If it did, chances are it is overly refined and overly processed and not something you should be eating if you want to lose weight. So, what should we eat? First, we have to get

You don’t need a magic formulas or potions, just common sense and dedication in order to be successful. It is crucial to understand that one to two pounds of weight loss per week is considered appropriate. This allows your body’s metabolic rate to adjust the thermostat for fat burning on a long-term basis. There will be weeks that you will plateau and not lose any weight despite your dedication and consistency. I It’s important to remember this and not become discouraged. There, now you’re ready for the beach.

ical, but it is clearly the healthiest thing for your body. It is known that Kelowna is second in our nation for having the most fast food restaurants per capita. But this does not a healthy choice make. Preparation and dedication is the key to success in weight loss. In addition you’ll need to eat three to six times a day with three good meals and one or two snacks throughout the day. The importance of water and weight loss is profoundly overlooked. It is well demonstrated in the research that the body that is well hydrated is one that will more readily mobilized fat stores. I suggest approximately two litres of water a day. It is just that simple.

▼ WATER WISE

Protecting and respecting valuable resource The Capital News starts a new monthly series today about how to be water wise in the Okanagan, an initiative coordinated by the Okanagan Basin Water Board. Toby Pike CONTRIBUTOR

May 1 to 7 is Drinking Water Week in B.C. In recognition of that, the Okanagan Basin Water Board has proclaimed Drinking Water Week in the Okanagan, encouraging people to “Get to know your H2O.” As residents of the Okanagan, it’s important we recognize its beauty and value and help conserve and protect it. We all share the same water in the Okanagan. All the waters of the Okanagan Basin—from the creeks and lakes, to the hidden waters underground—are connected, from Armstrong to Osoyoos. Unlike Vancouver and Victoria, the Okanagan doesn’t close off areas around its drinking water supplies. Instead, we are allowed to use the areas for recreation. This includes our big lakes in the valley bottom and the small ones up in the hills. So it’s important to understand that anytime we’re near water in the Okanagan, we are near someone’s drinking water and we need to be careful. One of the biggest problems facing our drinking water is recreation, whether it’s motor boats, houseboats, or other motorized vehicles. The waters are vulnerable to gas spills and leaks, and sewage spills. Smaller, shallower

lakes are even more sensitive, because there is less water to dilute any pollution. Cattle, horses, and even pets that relieve themselves in or near our water sources can also cause harmful bacteria growth that gets into our drinking waters. Motorized trail riding through creeks and streams and on the shores of small lakes stirs up dirt, and can take animal waste into the water which, again, affects the quality of someone’s drinking water. Another issue in the large lakes is stormwater pollution. Almost everything that enters storm sewers, including chemicals, dirt, cigarette butts, and other debris, goes directly into our creeks and lakes. This can hurt fish and other creatures that call these waters home, as well as our drinking water. There is only one water in the Okanagan. We swim in it, we play in it, we depend on it for our food production, and we drink it. Protecting our lakes and streams is good for our environment, but it also reduces the cost of treating our drinking water. We all share one valley and one water. It is up to each of us to do our part to protect this most precious resource, today and for future gener-

ations. A number of Okanagan communities are holding Drinking Water Week events, including open houses at their water treatment plants. Celebrate with us! Learn more at www.okwaterwise.ca.

WATERWISE TIPS

In nature… • When enjoying the back country, by foot, on horseback or ATV, stick to maintained trails in approved areas, and avoid going near or through streams and creeks. • Avoid using soap in the backcountry (even biodegradable ones). The chemicals can harm fish and aquatic plants and cause algae blooms. If you use soap for camping dishes, dump the soapy water far from any waterway. The ground will filter the soap before the dishwater makes its way back into our water system. • Keep pets away from streams to prevent animal waste and silt from polluting the water. • Leave no trace behind. Take out what you take in. In your yard… • Wash vehicles at a car wash that recycles its water. If you must wash at home, use a trigger nozzle to not waste water and wash the car over grass. Your lawn will remove most chemicals before the water makes its way back

to our lakes and streams. • Sweep your sidewalk and driveway. Hosing washes pollutants into storm drains and streams. • Reduce or eliminate use of fertilizers and pesticides on your lawn and garden.

In your home… • Reduce use of household hazardous products and use less harmful alternatives. • Medications and chemicals should not be flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Instead, take unused medications to any pharmacy. Check with your local regional district Waste Reduction Office to find appropriate disposal locations for paints and other chemicals.

Abe Kroeker the owner of Auction World which is donating the car, says the Braintrust cause is one close to his heart. “My 21 year-old son Troy suffered serious brain injury in a car crash three years ago. You never never know what tomorrow brings, and brain injury happens in an instant and your life changes forever,” said Kroeker. “We are very pleased to partner with BrainTrust Canada to bring awareness to this very serious issue and hope the community will get involved.” The basic rules of the contest are that each contestant must touch the vehicle with one hand at all times, and cannot lean or squat. They can only drink, eat and go to the bathroom during scheduled breaks—one fiveminute break every hour and one 15-break every six hours. Contestants must be B.C. residents and reside within a 200 km radius of Kelowna. Each contestant will have their own port-apotty provided by Interior Portable Rentals, and bleachers will be provided by Capital News Centre for friends and family to support the contestants. Also, a live feed will be available for viewing on braintrustcanada.com and K963.fm where people can follow their favourite contestant. Contestants can raise the $963 entry fee through donations from friends and family, for which tax receipts will be provided by BrainTrust Canada. There is also a “prize incentive package” with items from Andres Electronics, so that contestants can receive prizes for raising additional funds such as an LG Blue Ray DVD for $1,500 raised; Canon Power Shot D10 waterproof camera for $2,000 raised; SONY HDR Camcorder CX 110 for $2,500 raised; and Samsung LED Flat Panel 32-inch HDTV for $3,000 raised. Interested contestants should submit a bio of themselves, and the minimum entry fee of $963 to BrainTrust Canada at #11 -368 Industrial Ave., in Kelowna at their earliest opportunity, as the contest is limited to 20 contestants. Volunteer judges are also seeking volunteers to assist with judging for the event. To participate, call Carole Courtney 250762-3233.

UBCO engineering student earns $5,000 scholarship Third-year engineering student Audrey Siebert-Timmer is one of five women across Canada who will receive a $5,000

scholarship from the Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation. Siebert-Timmer will travel to Halifax in May

to receive her $5,000 and meet the other award winners. She will also serve as an ambassador of CEMF and present to youth at Okanagan high schools with the intent of promoting engineering as a viable career for both boys and girls. Closely tied to the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers, the CEMF seeks to recognize and promote exceptional women in engineering. Winners are chosen for their leadership activ-

ities, community and volunteer work, and a proven track record of mentorship and serving as a role model to others. “There are so many amazing women in engineering who are making a difference in their profession and I feel honoured and humbled to be selected for this award,” said Siebert-Timmer. “I’m really looking forward to travelling to Halifax and meeting the other award recipients. “I love talking to people and can’t wait to hear

about how the other girls have excelled in their programs, as well as share some of my experiences with them.” This summer, SiebertTimmer will return to the UBCO campus and work as a research assistant under the direction of engineering professor Lukas Bichler. Her work on the development of ceramic materials for the nuclear industry will be supported by an Undergraduate Student Research Award. “Audrey is one of the

rising stars at the School of Engineering at UBC,” said Bichler. “Aside from maintaining a high level of academic performance, she consistently reminds us that the true calling of an engineer is to make a difference in the lives of our peers, our community, and for all Canadians. “With her calm and humble personality, Audrey is a role model for many of her peers.” Siebert-Timmer’s volunteer activities include serving as an ambassador

for the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, through which she volunteers at basketball camps for middle-school girls who are interested in pursuing post-secondary education. She is also volunteering this year with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C. (Kelowna branch), serving on the executive board. As well, Siebert-Timmer is a senior player with the Okanagan Heat varsity women’s basketball team.

Orchard Park gets even greener In 2009, Orchard Park Shopping Centre set out to

Last year I was having problems with dry skin, concentration, joint stiffness, and high cholesterol. I eat well and drink plenty of water so I was confused as to what might be lacking. I went to Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fare to see if they had any suggestions and they informed me that Omega oils are crucial for the function of every cell in our body and that lacking them could be the reason I was experiencing my range of health problems.

Go Green and achieve the BOMA BESt Level 1 cer-

tification (Go Green Best Practices).

spring edition

Neptune Krill Oil is one of the best sources of Omega oils and stands out above the rest because it is delivered in a phospholipid form and not triglyceride form. Phospholipids are the same type of fat cells found in the human body. This means the oil is delivered with increased efficiency and I only need to take one a day, which is great for me as I only have to remember to take it once in the morning. And, another bonus, this Krill Oil doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause fishy burps!

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss your chance to get your message out to over 50,000 homes and businesses throughout the Central Okanagan.

I did some more research before I decided to try Krill oil and found studies showing that taking 1000mg of Krill oil once per day decreased LDL (bad) cholesterol by 32% and increased HDL (good) cholesterol by 44% in only 90 days. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a powerful antioxidant, helps with inflammation, and is fished from a sustainable source with very little contamination.

The next edition of this highly-read, glossy magazine is publishing May 29. Contact your advertising consultant to reserve your space today!

I am happy to report that I have been taking Krill oil every day for 8 months and I feel great! My memory has improved, my skin looks and feels softer and my joints rarely hurt. Best of all, I saw my doctor last week and my cholesterol is almost at perfect levels.

Now just two years later, the shopping centre have continued our responsibility for reducing the impact we have on the environment. In alignment with the waste reduction program implemented by the Regional District of Central Okanagan, Orchard Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing Responsible Recycling initiative is in its next stage. A new recycling program has been developed for the following list of items: â&#x20AC;˘ 150,000 lbs of cardboard â&#x20AC;˘ special bins collect electronic equipment, batteries and light bulbs or tubes â&#x20AC;˘ office paper, packing paper, newspaper, magazines, shrink and bubble wrap, along with plastic containers are also diverted from the landfill â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we are celebrating Earth Week, our commitment to the environment goes beyond just one week,â&#x20AC;? said Johnny Nielsen, operations supervisor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Daily initiatives are undertaken to ensure we exceed industry standards and lead the way in being green.â&#x20AC;? Initiatives that are ongoing at Orchard Park include: â&#x20AC;˘ Exterior irrigation happens using our own wells, not city water â&#x20AC;˘ Utilize a free cooling system, whereby outside air cools the inside of the mall â&#x20AC;˘ Cooking oil is recycled into biofuels

How to maximize your medical expense tax deductions M

ost of us know that in order to claim a medical item, the payment must have been made to a medical practitioner, a dentist or a registered nurse, or be for prescription medication. We also know that the receipts must be for the current period. Where people seem to get tripped up is when they think that they can deduct 100 per cent of their medical expenses. Another thing that isn’t readily understood by many is medical expense receipts can be for any 12-month period as long as the ending period is sometime during the current calendar year. Medical expenses can be taken by one spouse for both spouses, and also for your dependants even though they may no longer live with you. The proof that the Canada Revenue Agency requires when taking the medical expense credit for a dependent is that you paid the expense. Those people who participate in an extended health and dental plan can deduct the medical expense portion that is not covered by the plan. For example, if your plan only covers 80 per cent of your expenses, the other 20 per cent would be tax deductible. Alternatively, if your plan covers 100 per cent of your expenses, but doesn’t reimburse you for the first $200 every year, then that $200 would be deductible. The medical expense credit is a non-refundable tax credit. What that means is that a credit is given to the taxpayer that will be deducted directly off their taxes payable based on certain criteria. It is not refunded to the taxpayer.

BEHIND THE COUNTER

Gabriele Banka If the taxpayer doesn’t have enough taxes owing to take the entire medical credit, the rest of the credit is lost. The first stipulation of taking this credit is that the amount of medical expense needs to be greater than three per cent of your net income. For example, if your net income (Line 236 on a tax return) is $45,000; then three per cent would be $1,350, so you would need to have more than $1,350 in medical receipts to get any sort of credit. Here again is another tax planning tip for couples. If one spouse makes less or very little income, it would make sense for that spouse to take the medical expense credit because there would be more medical expenses available for credit. Continuing with the example above, if your spouse made $15,000 on line 236 of their return, then three per cent of that would be $450. So if your total medical receipts for you and your spouse were $1,000, then you would not be able to deduct them yourself ($1000 - $1,350 = $0), but you would be able to deduct ($1,000 $450 = $550) from your spouse’s return. So, you would think at this point that you would get the $550 as the deduction. But that is not so. This $550 becomes part of the rest of your other non-refundable tax credits, such as your basic personal deduction of

Kerry Park access closes temporarily The walkway through Kerry Park is temporarily closed to allow removal of the underground fuel tank located near Kelowna Marina. The area will be fenced off so that workers can excavate the site and remove the tank. The tank must be removed to allow remedial work in the park to begin later this year. Information about the re-opening of the walkway will be determined after work crews complete the excavation.

Take time to read with your children

10,320, your CPP, deduction for children, home renovation tax credit deduction, pension deduction and others that might apply. These credits are totaled together and then multiplied by 15 per cent, which is the amount that is taken off the federal and provincial taxes payable that were calculated from your taxable income amount. In other words, you would only get 15 per

cent of the $550, about $82.50, as a deduction. To recap, we started with $1,000 in medical expenses and now have received a deduction of $82.50 of your spouse’s tax payable. That is quite a difference, and the reason why you can’t count on the total of your medical expenses when trying to figure out if you will have to pay or get a refund, and how much that might be. There have been a

couple of significant changes to the deductibility of medical expenses. The first one affects us this year and has to do with those over-the-counter items that might be prescribed by a doctor. The rule now is that if you can buy it over-thecounter without a prescription, even if you have a prescription, the item will not be deductible. There are still some exceptions to the rule. The next pertains to

cosmetic procedures. Even if performed by a doctor, such procedures will not be deductible unless they are required in the actual cure of a medical condition. What do you need to bring your tax consultant? You need the actual medical receipt along with proof of payment. The debit card slips by themselves are not accepted by CRA and will not qualify for the credit. Most pharmacies are

all computerized and will gladly print you out a yearly summary that you can bring to your accountant. We can then use that summary on your medical expense claim and it will help to speed up the processing of your tax return.

Draft day nears for Watkins Members of West Kelowna fire department to join him in N.Y. Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Another chapter in the unlikely success story of Danny Watkins will be written next week at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The 26-year-old offensive lineman from West Kelowna has been projected as a late-first or early-second round pick in the 2011 edition of the National Football League player draft. Most pre-draft polls have Watkins being chosen somewhere between 27th and 35th spots overall. “I’m getting pretty excited,” said Watkins. “The worst part is waiting. But whatever the outcome is, whatever happens, it’s all been a pretty pleasant ride for me. It’s still sometimes hard to believe it’s actually happening.” That Watkins would become one of the most sought after U.S. college players in the class of 2011 once seemed a remote possibility, at best. The 6-foot-3 310-pound Mt. Boucherie grad had never played a down of football before the age of 22. He attended Okanag-

an Sun training camp a few years back, but suffered an injury and never saw game action. It turned out to be Watkins’ first passion, firefighting, that eventually led him to a career on the gridiron. While taking fire sciences courses at Butte College in California in 2007, the school’s football coach recognized Watkins’ size and potential and, the rest, as they say, is history. He played two seasons at Butte, then two more at Baylor University in Texas where he established himself as one of the top linemen in the NCAA. But through it all, Watkins has never forgotten his connection to the West Kelowna Fire and Rescue Service where he first volunteered as 15-year-old high school student. Over the next decade, he developed a lasting bond, both with the profession itself and with the people he worked alongside at the local fire hall. To show his appreciation, Watkins is flying five members of the West Kelowna department to New York next to share his ex-

perience. Fire chief Wayne Schnitzler, captains Lionel Bateman, Todd Moore, Pat Harmata and firefighter Richard Bliss will all stay at the same hotel as Watkins and will be on hand to watch the draft live.

‘‘

THE TEAM ASPECT OF FIREFIGHTING AND THE PASSION HE HAD FOR THAT TRANSLATED WELL INTO FOOTBALL. Wayne Schnitzler

“These are the guys who have been with me through the whole thing, the guys I leaned on when I started out at the department,” said Watkins. “This is my way of repaying them. I’m pretty broke right now, or I would have brought more people. It’s just going to be nice to have these five guys with me in New York.” Wayne Schnitzler is flattered and excited by the invitation, and thrilled with the way Watkins’ unlikely career in football had unfolded.

April 25th is Parental Alienation Awareness Day Are you a parent who is being made the enemy of your children? This is PARENTAL ALIENATION! The BC Ministry of Attorney General is currently revising the Family Relations Act (FRA) and is passing new legislation very soon. We are concerned that this Ministry is under estimating the importance of specifically addressing Parental Alienation in the new FRA. Parental Alienation must be identified as a specific factor in divorce, along with specific remedies, in the new FRA. It also needs to be defined as a form of domestic violence and child abuse, which experts say it is. Parental Alienation frequently happens during a divorce or separation. It occurs when one parent actively works to align a child by unjustified or exaggerated denigration of the other parent, also making it difficult for those grandparents to stay connected to their grandchildren. For information on Parental Alienation visit www.nanaimomen.com or www.marsbc.com or http://www.paawareness.org We are asking concerned parents, family members, judges, lawyers, counsellors, psychologists, and other professionals to contact the Attorney General of BC and your local MLA immediately. Let them know you want Parental Alienation recognized with specific remedies in the new FRA legislation.

“For us this is the thrill of a lifetime, getting the opportunity to be part of what will be a really exciting day for Danny,” said Schnitzler. “It’s simply amazing the way this whole thing has come about for him and it’s been fascinating for us to watch him learn and grow from a teenager into the person he is today. “The biggest thing about Danny is was he always loved the team aspect of firefighting and the passion he had for that translated well into football.” As a first or second round NFL draft pick, fame and fortune are almost certain to follow for Watkins. Still, Schnitzler doesn’t expect it will change his amicable and happy-go-lucky friend one bit. “He’ll still be the same smiling kid we always knew, down to earth and happy,” said Schnitzler. “Fame’s not going to spoil him. All good kids seem to have that drive to succeed and I have no doubt he’ll handle it very well. It’s still hard to believe how its unfolded.” Last year, the B.C. Lions recognized Watkins’ talent and drive, and selected him fourth overall in the CFL draft. However, with the NFL beckoning, it’s unlikely B.C. will ever see

Watkins in Lion colours . Atlanta, New England, Chicago, Green Bay, the Jets, Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Cincinnati are among the teams who could call his name. And does Watkins have any preferences on where he’d like his NFL career to begin ? “They’re all good, it really doesn’t matter,” said Watkins. “But after playing in Texas for two years, I’m pretty sold on the weather down here. I’m not big on the cold weather, but if my luck runs out, that’s the way it goes,” Watkins added with a laugh. The first round of the draft will be staged Thursday, April 28, with the remaining rounds to be held April 29 in New York. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

To crown the host club’s achievements, OMSC also won the Masters Swimming Association of British Columbia (MSABC) trophy as the team that earned the most points during the meet. The record-breaking achievements were even more impressive in that they were set without benefit of the controversial ‘super suits’. International swimming federation FINA ruled in 2009 that “no swimmer shall be permitted to use or wear any device or swimsuit that may aid his speed, buoyancy or endurance during a com-

▼ ACUPUNCTURE

Return of spring also means a return of allergy flare-ups S pring is once again upon us and with it, allergy season. The last couple of weeks, I have seen a number of people for allergy flare-ups, a sure sign that spring is here, even if the weather doesn’t seem to agree. Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis or seasonal allergies, is an allergic response to indoor or outdoor airborne allergens, such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander. This causes cold-like symptoms such as runny nose, congestion, sneezing and sinus pressure. For many people, hay fever gets worse at certain times of year, especially in the spring, summer or fall, although some people have hay fever year-

NEEDLE NOTES

James Kaufman round. Hay fever affects about one in five people and can begin at any age but is most likely to develop in childhood or early adulthood. Hay fever is due to an over-reactivity of the immune system where the immune system mistakenly identifies a harmless airborne substance as something harmful, and then starts producing allergy-causing antibodies in a process called sensitization.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY REGULATION AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING PURSUANT TO SECTIONS 225 AND 226 OF THE WORKERS COMPENSATION ACT OF BRITISH COLUMBIA

Every time the body comes in contact with the substance after that, these antibodies recognize it and signal the immune system to react, releasing chemicals (such as histamine) that lead to the irritating symptoms of hay fever. Hay fever can be triggered by either seasonal or year-round (perennial) allergens. Seasonal triggers include tree pollen, grass pollen, weed pollen, and spores from fungi and molds, which can be worse in warm-weather months. Year-round triggers include dust mites, cockroaches, pet dander, or spores from indoor and outdoor fungi and molds. Symptoms of hay fe-

ver usually develop immediately after exposure to allergens and often start or worsen at a particular time of year, such as in the spring when they are triggered by tree pollen, grasses, or weeds. People with sensitivities to indoor allergens such as dust mites, cockroaches, mold or pet dander may have year-round symptoms. Common symptoms include runny nose and nasal congestion, watery or itchy eyes, sneezing, cough, itchy nose, roof of mouth or throat, sinus pressure and facial pain, swollen, blue-colored skin under the eyes (allergic shiners), and decreased sense of smell or taste. More intrusive are

symptoms of sleeplessness, fatigue, and irritability. Treatment may involve over-the-counter and/or prescription medications to relieve symptoms. Medications may include nasal or pill-form corticosteroids to treat and prevent the inflammation symptoms, antihistamines for itching, sneezing, and runny nose, decongestants, or medications that have an effect on the immune system. With Chinese medicine, the lungs, kidney, and immune system often play a role in the cause of hay fever. Hay fever is very often due to a kidney deficiency because the kidneys are responsible for breathing

as well as sneezing. The kidneys also play a role in our immune system so when the kidneys are weak, our immunity is affected. In the case of hay fever, this manifests as a hyper-reactive immune response. The more severe the kidney deficiency, the more frequently the allergic reactions are experienced- this includes yearround allergies to things such as dust, fungus, or animals. A kidney deficiency leaves the body susceptible to external environmental invasions, leading to an invasion of wind in the nose, and this is when allergy symptoms begin to occur. Wind-cold pattern will produce symptoms of sneezing, profuse runny nose with white-watery discharge, pale complexion, stuffed nose, slight headache and no thirst. Wind-heat pattern will lead to sneezing, runny nose with white-watery discharge, itchy throat, itchy red eyes, and slight thirst.

During allergy season, frequent acupuncture treatments focus on alleviating the symptoms experienced and often yield a quick response. Patients may notice a decrease in their nose stuffiness, sneezes, and number of itching episodes around the eyes, as well as an increase in overall energy levels. Outside of allergy season, treatments may be less frequent and focus on correcting the underlying imbalance in order to strengthen the body and boost the immune system in order to prevent future allergic reactions from reoccurring. Acupuncture offers effective relief for hay fever, either as an alternative to conventional methods of treatment, or in conjunction with them, and for sufferers of hay fever, is well worth considering.

Charity web sites get revamped UBC students taking a third-year Human Computer Interaction course have been working with seven non-profit organizations in the Okanagan to revamp their web sites. In teams of three, students have spent the last few months gathering information on their assigned community organization and conducting a detailed analysis of the web site, its users, and its functionality. The goal is to leave the non-profits with a more user-friendly and effective web site from both technical and user viewpoints. The student teams presented their redesigns to the partnering organizations on Tuesday. “Our objective was to deliver a web site that was clean, attractive and met the needs of both the clients and service providers,” said UBC student Ryan Trenholm, whose group worked with the KiLow-Na Friendship Society. “It was a great experience—a lot of work, but

in the end we learned a lot, especially about the user perspective of web design and the consultation process.” The project was partially funded by Interior Savings through their Community Investment Fund. The seven nonprofit organizations involved are: • Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society • Project Literacy Kelowna Society • Kelowna and District Society for Community Living • Central Okanagan Food Policy Council • Central Okanagan Hospice Association • Central Okanagan Community Gardens • Peachland Wellness Centre “The students’ enthusiasm and energy was wonderful. They paid careful attention to detail, took a creative approach that was outside the box, and delivered a very positive experience,” said Barb Hagan, executive director of Project Literacy Kelowna.

But don’t forget some of the big ones that are already in theatres, including Rio, the number one movie from last weekend and Hop, a future Easter classic which is still in theatres.

He literally quits to join the circus, a secondrate one at that, where he uses his veterinary skills to care for the menagerie. There he meets and falls in love with a beautiful equestrian star (Witherspoon) who is married to the charismatic but twisted animal trainer (Waltz). Rated PG with a warning of violence. Neither Mike Leigh nor any of his films are household names, but he is the Academy Award nominated writer/director of Secret & Lies, TopsyTurvy, Vera Drake and Happy-Go-Lucky. His latest nomination came this year for writing the screenplay for Another Year, opening this weekend at the Paramount Theatre. Jim Broadbent and Lesley Manville star as a married couple who have managed to remain blissfully happy into their autumn years. The movie is a year in the life of the couple, surrounded by friends, colleagues and family who all seem to suffer some degree of unhappiness. If you are looking for action, look elsewhere, as Leigh is best known for realistic English dramas with a feel for the nuances of everyday life. However if interesting characters and dialogue excite you more than explosions, this movie is for you. Rated PG with a warning of coarse language.

Harp Orchestra Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

On the heels of a popular trend in harp music, local harp player Caroline Mackay has created a new trio, including an accordion player. The trio, dubbed Crimson Rich, features McKay, Rod Miller on accordion and Max DeBeeson on the cello. “Harp players recently have been very interested in working with accordions,” said Mackay, noting it’s actually a global trend to try and incorporate an accordion in an ensemble. “There’s just that beautiful rich Italian sound to them,” she explained. “It really works well together.” Mackay runs the local harp orchestra and was approached by Miller, a seasoned accordion player, to see if there was a

synergy when they played together. They fit so nicely she decided to incorporate the trio into her orchestra’s semi-annual concert. Each year the ninemember harp orchestra plays a Spring Fling concert, drawing together the talents of the season. At the moment, the Okanagan Harp Orchestra, as they call themselves, is an adult group but they have been known to attract children as well, making for an interesting range of talent which spans every generation. This year’s spring program includes Celtic music, rhythmic Latin, classical and some original pieces as well. Tickets are $10 at the door and the event will be held at St. Michael & All Angels Church on Sutherland Avenue. The event goes Sunday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m.

ABERDEEN HALL school students were excited about their accomplishment— launching a two-week crayon recycling challenge that collected some 40 kilos of broken or unwanted crayons that were otherwise going to be tossed out.

▼ ABERDEEN HALL

Students divert a pile of crayons from being dumped in landfill Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School’s Grade 2 Class helped our planet become a little greener this Earth Day, April 22. Led by student Kaden Swallow, his classmates launched a two-week crayon recycling challenge across their school and community resulting in a collection of over 40 kg of broken and unwanted crayons—the equivalent of about 10,000 new crayons. “I really care about the earth and this Earth Day I wanted to do something to help our planet stay green,” said Swallow. “The crayon recycling challenge was so great because I was able to help educate people around Kelowna about recycling. “A lot of people were surprised to learn that it takes 100 years for crayons to decompose in the landfill. “I had a lot of fun and I’m so happy that the challenge was successful. I just want to thank all the restaurants that helped us by contributing their used crayons. “I met a lot of really cool people who care about the earth too!” The crayon pieces collected by Aberdeen Hall students will be sent to a recycling facility, where they will be transformed into eco-friendly ‘Crazy Crayons’ and sold at the school for Earth Day. All proceeds from the sale of the Crazy Crayons will be used to purchase seeds and other supplies for the school garden. Besides coming from their own homes, the students approached several local restaurants that provide crayons to children at their tables, many of which become broken or are left behind. As a result of the campaign, most restaurants that were approached and did not already have a crayon recycling program in place have now pledged to continue collecting the crayons for recycling. “When I was approached by Kaden (Grade 2 Aberdeen Hall student) at Earls on Top, Kelowna to participate in his

program, I was absolutely inspired by his maturity, initiative, and awareness of important environmental issues at such a young age,” said Kaitlin Young, director of marketing for the restaurant. “Children play an integral role in increasing the sustainability of their communities by encouraging changes in the behaviour of those around them. “Aberdeen Hall’s Crayon Recycling Program is a great match for Earls on Top, Kelowna as we have taken many steps to illustrate our corporate commitment to sustainability by trying to reduce the amount of non-biodegradable waste we contribute to local landfills.” Because of their efforts, the Aberdeen Hall Grade 2 class will now be a contender in the 2011 Great EcoKids Earth Day Challenge at the end of this month. The annual Canada-wide competition, a program of Earth Day Canada, is for schools and youth groups who are positively impacting the environment. EcoKids is an education program that offers curriculum-linked materials and activities for Canadian elementary schools to engage in environmental action. This year the winners of the Challenge will receive prizes from Sony of Canada Ltd. Jasmine Scherz, Grade 2 teacher at Aberdeen Hall Preparatory school, said “I have been so impressed with Kaden’s initiative in this project as well as the initiative of the other students. “The class was supportive by making posters and spreading the word about the challenge and we have had a lot of fun with the project. It’s inspiring to see these students become so passionate about a topic once they learn about it!” Aberdeen Hall is a non-denominational, independent university preparatory school offering classes from Preschool and Kindergarten through Grade 10, with a new high school being built right now. Aberdeen Hall is located adjacent to the University of UBC Okanagan campus.

My doctor tried them all on me. So he said to try a natural product. After taking Bell Cholesterol Control #14 I have no more pain. I’m so happy about this. Deanna O’Neil, 63, Tecumseh, ON. �I had great success with all Bell health products! #14 In the last 2 years I had relief with Bell Prostate Ezee Flow Tea, HDL Cholesterol Management, Blood Pressure Combo and Stem Cell Activator. I love your products. They all work for me. Great results. That’s all that matters. Basil Richards, 49, S.W. Ranches, FL.

Stem Cell Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection.Naturopathic Doctor summarized his #63 experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage.

Women witnessing the effects of Bell Stem Cell Activator:

�Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging. After using a bottle of Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 my skin seemed smoother and brighter. My hair looked healthier. It seems to have a cleansing effect. I’m delighted. Leona McCormick, 50, Clgary, AB � All around healing effect! The first thing I noticed after starting Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 was that my skin feels firmer and stronger. My friends commented that my skin looks more vibrant. My doctor at my yearly physical told me that my blood pressure is significantly lower. Many good things are happening. Joy Davison, 55, Calgary, AB

DRINK UP!…B.C. Water & Waste Association chief executive officer Daisy Foster and Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd had a

special toast on Monday to Drinking Water Week, which runs from May 1 to 7.

Act today to protect biodiversity.

On Earth Day 2011, which takes place on April 22, everyone nvited to do something concrete to help protect the is invited diversity of our planet. But how can we carry Earth Day biodiversity ctices over into our daily lives? practices AT HOME: OME:

• Eating certified organic products will help to support a food production method free of chemicals and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). • Buying local products will reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) caused by the transport of merchandise. • Choosing products with a minimum of packaging will prevent creating more garbage, which will in turn reduce GHGs, the overexploitation of natural resources, and waste disposal sites. • Reducing your water consumption will protect this important natural resource and will also help reduce the pollution produced by its treatment.

ON THE ROAD:

• Opting for public and eco-friendly forms of transportation will reduce the number of cars on our roads as well as the GHGs produced by them.

IN YOUR COMMUNITY:

• Participating in programs aimed at protecting green spaces will help protect the biological diversity of our country. • Voting for people who propose concrete initiatives that favour biodiversity brings the environment and the very future of this planet to the forefront of national priorities.

Rogue SUV/CUV crossover is still a best seller for Nissan Lorne Drury CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

CONTRIBUTED

THE ROGUE has undergone a mid-cycle refresh for 2011 with a few tweaks in exterior styling through the use of more chrome and front and rear spoilers.

The Rogue has been a best seller for Nissan since its debut in 2008. That year it earned top honours in the SUV/CUV under $35,000 category in the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s (AJAC) Car of the Year testing. For 2011, the compact Rogue crossover has a refreshed exterior, interior refinements, more available technology and another model choice. No wonder Nissan expects continued success for the Rogue, which experienced a sales jump of 19 per cent last year compared to the previous year. With sales of 13,199 units in 2010, the Rogue

was the seventh best-selling vehicle among small SUV/CUV offerings in the country. Topping the sales charts is the Ford Escape with sales of 43,038 units. The Hyundai Santa Fe (27,882), Honda CR-V (24,930), Dodge Journey (23,785), Toyota RAV4 (22,810) and the Chevrolet Equinox (19,261) also finished in front of the Rogue, however, with about 23 different models in the segment, it is certainly one of the most competitive in the marketplace. For 2011, the Rogue is available in three model choicesã the Rogue S, Rogue SV and the new Rogue SL, which is ofSee Rogue B2

fered in all-wheel-drive (AWD) only. The S and SV come in front-wheel drive (FWD) or AWD. Power comes in the form of a 2.5-litre DOHC inline four-cylinder engine, making 170 hp and 175 lb/ft of torque. It is mated with an Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) and comes with safety features such as four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, Nissan’s version of stabil-

ity control called Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and traction control. The front-engine, front-wheel drive Rogue seats five. What sets it apart in the marketplace is its aggressive styling. It’s not a mini Nissan Murano, but the Murano DNA is certainly all over it. And it doesn’t have the ‘compact’ CUV market to itself at Nissan any more with the launch of the smaller Juke last fall. While the changes for

2011 are subtle, the Rogue does have some different exterior styling cues including a splash of chrome on the front grille along with chrome side moldings over the rocker panels, and a new rear spoiler. In all, it gives the Rogue a more stylish look. Inside, the cabin is spacious. Cargo volume is a generous 1,639 litres (57.9 cu ft.) with the rear seats folded and 818 litres (28.9 cu. ft.) with the seats See Rogue B3

Already standard on the SV model are features like heated upgraded front cloth seats, tilt steering column, keyless remote entry, rearview camera, trip computer and outside temperature gauge, 4.3inch colour audio display and rear tonneau cover. The cabin of the Rogue has a cockpitlike feel with a supportive driver’s seat that adjusts six ways manually. It will also lift two inches if you want to sit up just a bit higher. The heated, cloth driver’s seat (leather is standard on the SL model and optional on the SV) is both comfortable and supportive. The instrument panel is well laid out and easy to read. Like many vehicles I see today, there is a bit up.

too much hard plastic for my liking, but overall, the Rogue has an attractive, well-finished interior. On the road, the Rogue is equally at home in city or highway traffic. The CVT transmission works efficiently to get the best possible fuel economy and power out of the 2.5-litre engine, but the constant whine you get under acceleration with almost all CVTs is annoying. This CVT, though, is one of the better ones on the market and it employs adaptive logic control and adjusts the shift pattern according to the driving situation and driver’s demands. Overall, the engine responds quickly to throttle pressure and the

vehicle exhibits smooth and powerful acceleration. Once up to speed, the noise subsides and there’s little wind or road noise intruding into the cabin. It becomes a very pleasant environment. Natural Resources Canada puts the fuel economy numbers of the AWD Rogue at 9.3L/100 km (30 mpg) city and 7.7L/100km (37 mpg) highway. The Rogue sits on Nissan’s ‘C’ platform, the same as the Sentra sedan, but it’s surprising because the Rogue has the appearance of being a much bigger vehicle. Extensive use of high-strength steel increases body rigidity, while at the same time re-

inches), the Rogue is among the longest vehicles in its class and its 2,690 mm (105 in) wheelbase helps smooth out the ride. Suspension is independent all round and the steering has an electric power assist. For a CUV, the Rogue maneuvers well in tight city conditions and the ride on the highway is smooth and comfortable. All in all, the Rogue proves to be a solid, capable performer. And although it has undergone only a midcycle refresh for 2011, it offers a better overall package for buyers looking for the utility, comfort and versatility of a compact CUV.

Warning thrum of a race curb rumble strip can be heard Acura from B4 corners hold no more surprises. Like this one coming up, for example. Stand on the gas down

the straight, wait, wait, and brake hard, downhill into the dip. Blip and downshift into third in preparation for the exit, the gravity of the climb up the other side helping

the brakes to squeeze the speed down by 100 kph or so, the shift in momentum compressing the front wheels for the hard turn-in to the right. Back on the power

and unwind the wheel, easy, easy, using the whole width of the track. There’s a wriggle as the rear end momentarily breaks loose, the warning thrum of a race curb rumble strip, the

alarming bang of a wheel edging off pavement and the shotgun spray of dirt hitting the wheel well. But then, whew, there’s the reassuring shudder of the car clawing

back onto the racetrack. A bit of a close call, but apparently not close enough. “Try to overdrive the car a little more for the next few laps,” the voice

MOTORING Acura from B6

WIN! Enter for your chance to

TLs that started arriving at dealers in mid-March. Now, lest we get caught up in all this talk of styling refinements and cosmetic changes, we should remember that Acura chose a racetrack to highlight the sum total of the TL’s sports sedan qualities. And, as it turned out, a road course in the rain was the perfect venue to test the 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD’s power and handling abilities. Towards the end of the day, we held a lapping competition with twoman teams, one lap each with a driver switch. I paired up with fellow automotive jour-

Secret Cove Resort!

fresh from an extensive mid-cycle makeover that refined the exterior looks, added a new multi-clutch six speed automatic transmission, improved noise insulation for a quieter cabin, and tweaked aerodynamics and fuel efficiency while maintaining the TL’s sports sedan reputation for power and handling.

get into more trouble. But this was Scott Goodyear, one of Canada’s greatest racing drivrers, who along with his co-instructor for the day, Al Unser Jr., represented the most celebrated and closest-fought 1-2 finish in the history of the Indianapolis 500. The whole point of our exercise under these two noteworthy instructors was to push past the usual point of no return, to where things go awry and the world shifts slightly sideways. We were there to test the saving graces of the Acura TL SH-AWD. That acronym stands for Super Handling All Wheel Drive, one of those Japanese-constructed names that makes everyone giggle—except the Japanese. But the only tittering in the TLs on that rainy day would have been nervous laughter as the SH-AWD system continuously corrected our mistakes, straightened our skidding lines and just generally pulled our fat out of the fire. I asked Scott Goodyear how he would have managed at these speeds in the rain without it? “Oh, I’d be in the mud,” he said. “You can fight your way through every lap but, with all the rain and puddles on a day like this, eventually a corner would bite you.” “Yeah, wish we had this on our race cars,” Unser added. Under normal cruising, the SH-AWD operates benignly with up to 90 per cent of the engine torque rotating the front wheels. But in hard cornering and under acceleration, up to 70 per cent of available

torque can be directed to the rear wheels to enhance vehicle dynamics. And, depending on conditions and sensor feedback, all of the engine power channeled to the rear axle can be applied to either of the rear wheels. Now, the more astute readers out there will know that the SH-AWD system is not exactly new. So why all the fuss about the 2012 Acura TL? The 2011 TL was a good car. But some customers just couldn’t get past its looks. To put it bluntly, the 2012 Acura TL needed a nose job and a fanny tuck, dialing down the proportions of polarizing elements like “Dynamic Power Plenum”, the shield-like grille mounted on the front of the TL like a giant bottleopener. It was a fixture that looked fine on the MDX sport Ute, but it was way too overpowering on a sports sedan. Designers added horizontal elements, reduced some of the more garish cues and, in general, created a more refined exterior. The cabin is quieter and the interior received some minor trim adjustments along with a long list of other small changes. More importantly, Acura added a new sixspeed multi-clutch automatic transmission that, along with aerodynamic improvements and engine tweaks, improves fuel efficiency by more than two litres per 100km. A six-speed manual is still available. There are new wheels, new colours and a new Elite model with new heated/ventilated seats, the first Acura Blind Spot Information (BSI) system and new, bigger 19-inch wheels. Acura is sticking with last year’s prices on 2012
