Mayoral final vote count was a nail biter

Overpass collapse to cause re-routing of all traffic

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Walter Gray is going back to the mayor’s office. And he will be joined on Kelowna city council by five new faces, as only three incumbents were reelected, Robert Hobson, Andre Blanleil and Luke Stack. The newcomers on council will be former fire chief Gerry Zimmermann, who topped the councillor poll, Gail Given, the widow of former city councillor Brian Given and a former board of education trustee, former CHBC television news reporters Colin Basran and Mohini Sigh and Maxine DeHart, a local hotelier and Capital News business columnist. In one of the closest mayoral races in Kelowna in memory, incumbent Sharon Shepherd led the race right until the last polling station’s numbers were reported—those cast during four days of advanced voting. In the end, Gray received 13,995 votes, or 47.14 per cent of the vote and Shepherd received 13,574 votes, 45.72 per cent of the vote. The three other mayoral candidates, Cal Condy, Ken Chung and Kim Ouellette all

finished well back with just 1,000 votes (3.37 per cent), 749 votes (2.52 per cent) and 370 votes (1.25 per cent) respectively. “That was close,” said Gray, speaking after delivering his acceptance speech to about 100 supporters at the Coat Capri Hotel Saturday night. “If we had slowed down at one bend (during the campaign), we would have lost tonight.” Gray, who pledged during the campaign and again Saturday night to “get Kelowna moving again,” called the new make-up of council the “perfect team,” adding he did not feel it will be a developer-driven council but rather one that will signal to business and investors that the city is, in his words, open for business again. It was a message he hammered home during the campaign and one that Shepherd found herself defending against time and time again, despite citing examples of development that had occurred in Kelowna during the six years she was mayor. Gray told his supporters he wants to “re-inspire” the community over the next three years

The nightmare scenario for West Kelowna traffic on Highway 97 should be over by today or Wednesday. In the aftermath of the new Westside overpass retaining wall collapse on Sunday, the ministry of highways detoured southbound Highway 97 traffic on Sunday, then expanded that order to all traffic on Monday to allow for repairs to be made to the overpass retaining walls. As well, the Westside Road underpass structure will be closed until further notice. The Westside Road Interchange Project is a partnership between Westbank First Nation and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Murray Tekano, district manager for the ministry of transportation and infrastructure, said that it’s difficult to speculate why the retaining wall crumbled. “It’s very hard to say, we really don’t know until the engineers have a look at it,” said Tekano on Sunday after initially assessing the damage. According to Tekano, there were no collisions or injuries as a result of the collapse. On Sunday, northbound traffic was still allowed to travel freely under the overpass on Sunday morning and Tekano said that there was no danger to those vehicles. “We’re satisfied that northbound traffic can move under the structure; it’s only on the southbound side that this wall has collapsed,” he said. But on Monday, all traffic was detoured to allow for the retaining wall repairs to be done. RCMP and fire crews redirected southbound traffic towards Bear Creek Road and then onto Parkinson Road in order to get back to the highway. Evelyn Lube, project communications for the Westside Road Interchange, said she is hopeful that engineers will be able to determine the cause of the collapse at some point on Sunday. She also said that the retaining wall on the other side of the overpass will likely be inspected.

Final Kelowna Sweeping changes come to city council vote results ▼ KELOWNA

Alistair Waters

Candidate Kelowna Mayor GRAY, Walter SHEPHERD, Sharon CONDY, Calvin (Cal) CHUNG, Ken OUELLETTE, Kim

ASSISTANT EDITOR

With five rookie councillors and a mayor who is returning to the office after six years way, it appears the new Kelowna city council will face a steep learning curve. And it will start with what is arguably council’s biggest task, dealing with Kelowna’s annual budget. Almost as soon as mayor-elect Walter Gray and his eight councillors—five of whom are first-timers to the office—are sworn in, they will have to get down to crunching the numbers. “I’m actually looking forward to the budget,” said Colin Basran, who placed third on the councillor poll in Saturday’s civic election. Basran said while he recognizes there are needs in the community that have to be addressed, he is also mindful of what he heard on the campaign trail from residents. “Many feel they are at the breaking point when it comes to taxes,” he said. For other newcomers, such as popular former fire chief Gerry Zimmermann, who topped the poll with more votes than anyone else running—including the mayoral candidates—the budget is not too daunting a process. “I had to prepare them for 25 years,” said Zimmermann, referring to his days in charge of the fire department. “So it won’t be that bad.” He said while he’s aware the current council wants city staff to strive towards no tax increase this year, he said that may not be possible. “What’s important is that the residents get value for every tax dollar spent,” he said.

and Basran all said they were surprised to finish atop the councillor poll in the election. “I was very pleased,” said Given, a former school district trustee and widow of the late former city councillor Brian Given. “I had hoped to finish seventh or eighth.” The top eight finishers in the 40-person councillor race all won seats on the new council, which will be sworn in Dec. 5. Joining the trio will be two other newcomers, local hotelier and Capital News business columnist Maxine DeHart and former CHBC news reporter Mohini Singh, who currently works for the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture. Long-time council stalwarts Robert Hobson and Andre Blanleil were re-elected, along with one-term incumbent Luke Stack. Five of the incumbents who were running— Graeme James, Kevin Craig, Angela Reid-Nagy, Charlie Hodge and Michele Rule—were not re-

elected. Craig, who won his seat on the current council in a by-election in 2009, said he will leave office “with my head held high,” happy with the accomplishments the current council has achieved. While he felt the hangover effects of the controversial CD-21 zone of two years ago was a big factor in organizing opposition to the current council, he said he believes the city is better off given that it has set the ground work with the new downtown plan and the Bernard Avenue revitalization project. That plan, which has yet to be finalized, appears to have the backing of Gray who, during the campaign, urged the public to get behind it. Hodge said he was disappointed by the results, noting that money was a big factor in this civic election campaign. “It was hard to compete against the money and machinery at work in this election,” he said. “Money talks.”

Hodge said he is proud of what the council was able to accomplish, despite the constant campaign rhetoric of being called a “do-nothing council.” “The reality is that this new council will be following through on a lot of the plans for the downtown, transit, Glenmore and the City Green development that this council undertook over the first three years,” he said. James, who said he would have liked to have been part of a council led by Gray, said while he was happy with what council has achieved, more could have been done and decisions could have been made quicker. He said while the downtown plan is good in large part, it neglects the Leon and Lawrence Avenue areas and that needs to be addressed. Unlike Craig, James was not one of the incumbents targeted by a local group of businesspeople who very publicly endorsed four new can-

didates and four incumbents. FourChange.org wanted Craig, Hodge, Rule and Reid-Nagy replaced and said it supported Hobson, Blanleil, James and Stack as well as Zimmermann, Given, Basran and unsuccessful candidate Carol Gran. While it was just one of several local groups that endorsed candidates, it gained notoriety first for going public with its “hit” list before identifying who it would endorse and then heavily advertising its endorsements during the last days of the campaign. Winners and losers in the election said they felt FourChange’s endorsements played a part in the outcome. On election night, Gray called the new council “perfect,” later clarifying he did not mean that it will be a developer-driven council, but rather one that he feels will represent the entire community.

O

ne step back, one step forward is how one might sum up the results or the Kelowna elections for mayor and city council on Saturday. Reaching into the past was reflected in Kelowna voters, while by a very close margin, choosing to bring back Walter Gray as mayor. After he had served three terms as mayor before losing to Sharon Shepherd in the 2005 election, Gray seemingly drop-

ping out of political life, until the perceived inactions of the last council and no apparent credible candidate able to challenge that record brought him back into the local political game at age 71. His campaign was tightly controlled by his campaign managers, as Gray stuck to message, that under his leadership Kelowna would be open for business, while not getting dragged down on specifics. Gray had a few gaffes dur-

ing the debates, but his campaign themes resonated with voters, leaving Shepherd on the defensive throughout the campaign. But as the votes were being counted, it became apparent that whoever would preside over a divided city. That division is less apparent on the new council, as five incumbents were voted out, something unheard of before in Kelowna’s civic election history. While the last group sitting around the council table were

often called a do-nothing council during the election campaign, the reality is the new council will be putting into action many of the policies the outgoing council established— downtown development, sustainable growth outlined in the Official Community Plan, revitalizing Bernard Avenue, establishing a growth plan for Glenmore and a development plan the Central Green project. The more things change, sometimes they stay the same.

elowna voters wanted a change on city council. And they delivered one, big time. While the race for mayor was a close one, the councillor contest showed just how much many of the 33 per cent of eligible voters who cast a ballots really wanted new faces, and a more right-wing view, at the council table. They gave former mayor Walter Gray, who narrowly defeated twoterm incumbent Sharon Shepherd for the mayor’s job, what he called the “perfect” council. It’s one he feels will show the business and investor world Kelowna is open for business once again. Despite Gray’s repeated use of

But while the mayor, a 15-year council veteran—nine as a councillor and six as mayor—came close to puling that off, a majority of those who served on her council did not. In the biggest turnover in memory, Kelowna voters sent five new faces to the council chamber, leaving five incumbents on the outside looking in. In a crowded 40-person field, name recognition helped in this election. There was never any doubt popular former fire chief Gerry Zimmermann would win a seat, but for others, like political newcomers Mohini Singh and Maxine DeHart, per-

sonal popularity played a big part in parlaying their charitable and media reputations into votes. As for former CHBC News reporter Colin Basran and former school board trustee Gail Given, widow of the late city councillor Brian Given, the flurry of free advertising that their endorsement from the pro-business group FourChange.org afforded them, helped too. The challenge for the new councillors will be to show they are not simply rubber-stampers of any development proposal that comes their way.

Voters turned away seeing long lineup To the editor: What an absolute farce the voting station was at the Rutland YMCA. Lined up out the entrance door, in to the left, around a tower of some sort, back past the entrance door, down the hall, turn and come back up the hall to within 15 feet of the entrance door, into a small 30x40 foot room, sign a declaration, get in another line that wound around the centre of the room until a voting station was available. The tables and stations were so close together you could see who the people on either side of you were voting for.

The tables had to be moved, doors closed and people interrupted mid-vote so that a fellow in his motorized wheel chair could get in to vote. Not very handicap friendly. Good for him, by the way. Some people saw the line up and turned away saying “forget it.” Even those of us who stayed wondered out loud that it is no wonder voter turn out is so bad. And the handicap parking was full of cars without handicap cards. We had to park about 50 yards away. Why didn’t they set up at the high school on Rutland Road? If they could use Springval-

Moved here to escape concrete canyons To the editor: Looks like the 10 business people making up the deep pockets behind FourChange.org elected their mayor (Walter Gray) of choice and three out of four councillors (Gerry Zimmerman, Gail Given, Colin Basran) they also financed. I’ll be interested to see

the campaign contribution disclosure statements these folks must legally file. These election results, and how those results were financed and obtained, are an interesting and valuable lesson for the elections in November 2014. Footnote: If they’re

smart the next equivalent of FourChange—only this time with a different name like the Kelowna Peoples Party funded by other people without the vested financial interest in the outcome— should start campaigning now (and make better use of electronic and social media). They should

document every questionable decision made by the FourChange people elected and list those on their web site paying particular attention to following the money. Looks like CD-21 is a certainty and downtown becomes 30 to 40 storey highrises, concrete, glass and steel canyons—not

young, old, inexperienced and experienced to focus on actual issues in this city. Rutland needs a revitalized core to support the growth in that area. Our transit system has improved over the years but we’re light years behind where we need to be. Downtown Kelowna is a ghost town. We need parks, bike paths, attractive and affordable areas for businesses to set up shop, not highrise luxury hotels that’ll continue to stay vacant because there is nothing to attract people to this dying city of ours. I really feel like our “new” mayor and media personality-infested council isn’t going to bring about any change. You know what’ll be funny? Three years from now, when we’re back at it again and Shepherd is elected. Are we really going to continue this ping pong game?

Gerry Zimmermann is quoted on Castanet saying: “I’m really happy, but this makes me happier with Walter as my boss again. I wanted this right from the beginning and we got everything we wanted.” You really got everything you wanted Gerry? Did this plan include driving every single young person out of Kelowna? It’s not even a matter of one foot in the grave—the people of Kelowna voted to leap head first into the grave and turn into Barkerville. While I’m looking for job opportunities and rental listings in more progressive areas of British Columbia, I’ll have my eye on this “new” mayor and council, fighting every step of the way and making sure they are held accountable.

‘Wonderful’ Kelownians redeem shaky start to visit To the editor: On Nov. 11, after a harrowing drive up from Vancouver, my husband and I arrived in Kelowna to check out the city as potential residents rather than as tourists. We wanted to look into real-estate and schools for our four children. After checking into our hotel we stopped at a local fast food restaurant. In the parking lot, moments after finishing my meal, my tongue swelled and my breathing became laboured. Not knowing the city we rushed first to the Pharmasave where the kind pharmacist allowed me to take some Benedryl and advised me to go to the clinic up the street, which I did.

At the clinic a wonderful doctor took a look at me, gave me another shot and then sent me off to the Kelowna General Hospital ER. At the ER the friendly intake worker calmed my nerves by telling me about her similar experience. After a short wait we were seen by another lovely nurse and then a funny, kind and supportive young doctor (longish hair, big smile). Waiting for all the medications to work their magic my husband and I chatted with other patients—the wonderful young woman having an asthma attack who shared her advice about local schools, music stores and after-school programs;

the young couple there for a kidney stone who expressed their concern for me and apologized for our experience—the streaming nurse who checked on me and smiled often. Instead of meeting in person with a real estate agent we ended up chatting on the phone with an agent who was helpful, kind and supportive. Before heading home we managed to spend a little time driving around the beautiful city and without fail every Kelowna resident we came across was beyond helpful. An experience which could have literally and figuratively left us with a very bad taste in our mouth about Kelowna, ended up making us feel it

is a wonderful place to be with great people. We will definitely be back, if not to live (broadcasting jobs, anyone?) then at least to

Walter Gray as mayor? Our poor beloved city has hopped into a time machine back to 1996. The FourChange campaign was a total joke as well. Did Nick Frost and the rest of the backers stand outside of every polling station on Nov. 19 and pay every single voter $20 to vote Zimmerman, Gran, Basran and Given?

Five new faces are elected to council

Findlater wins another three year term as mayor

Council from A3 Given echoed that, saying she did not feel there will be expectations on it from developers to approve their projects, but rather make decisions in a more speedy manner. She noted some of the newcomers have also been heavily involved with social issues through their charity work so the public should not feel that work will be neglected by the new council. Basran said he is offended by the thought the council will not pay attention to issues other than development and busi-

ness during the next three years. “I still care about social issues, the sporting community and other parts of the community,” he said. But Blanleil. speaking on election night, said the biggest social issue council will face is trying to help create more jobs in the community at a time when the economy is still in tough shape. That will help raise the standard of living for people in Kelowna, he added “The biggest social issue is getting people back to work,” said Blanleil.

The District of West Kelowna council is going to look pretty familiar for the next three years. Mayor Doug Findlater retained his job as mayor and all incumbent councillors—except Rosalind Neis who ran for the mayor position—kept their seats on council as well. With 3,156 ballots with his name checked, Findlater beat out challenger Neis’s 2,126 votes. Findlater said that the public has spoken and declared that they are happy with the job being done by mayor and council. “The public has said this mayor and council have done a great job,” said Findlater shortly after hearing Saturday night’s results. “But that doesn’t mean that we can rest on our laurels because there’s a huge job ahead of us.”

‘‘

THE PUBLIC HAS SAID THIS MAYOR AND COUNCIL HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB. Doug Findlater, West Kelowna Mayor

Rick de Jong was the only newcomer to earn a spot on council. According to Findlater, he’ll be a good addition to the group. “I think Rick will fit in great. Rick’s been in leadership positions and he’s been around local government, so he’ll stand in good stead.” The other incumbents returned to council were David Knowles, Gord Milsom, Duane Ophus, Bryden Winsby and Carol Zanon. One early concern that Findlater expressed is the

disproportionate number of women on council. “One of the areas I’m concerned with, now (that) Rosalind is departing, is we’re down to one woman on council. “I think that’s something that council’s going to have to talk about and address in some way. We’ll have to find a mechanism to make sure that we hear from women and their perspective as we go along.” But Neis doesn’t regret her decision to run for mayor, even though she felt she could have likely earned her spot back on council if she had run. “I’m very happy that I stood up for what I thought was right. I’m very happy with the situation as it is now, that I can get back to my life prior to politics,” said Neis. “I wish the council all the best.” When asked if she will run in the future, her an-

Advance poll put Gray over the top

High child poverty rate sends message to new city council

and wants to re-energize people. “I won’t let you down and I will work hard,” he vowed. “I just love this city.” For Shepherd, who after nine years as a city councillor defeated Gray in the 2006 mayoral election and was then re-elected mayor in 2008, the loss ended a political career in a nail-biting evening where she watched her wafer-thin lead in the numbers evaporate at the last possible moment. “Well, my family will get me back,” said a disappointed Shepherd after being told she had lost the election by just 421 votes. To add to the tension

of the night, the city’s website—which was updating the election numbers—crashed with just the advance poll numbers and those from the Orchard Park Shopping Centre voting station to be announced. At that point, Shepherd was leading by just 0.3 per cent. But it was the advance poll numbers that put Gray, who describes himself as more of a chairman of the board than a mayor, over the top. Gray has been described as more of a “big picture” person than Shepherd, known for her attention to detail and her ability to cite examples of projects the city has taken on and completed.

When asked if there was one issue that may have cost her the election, Shepherd said the CD-21 zone that was rejected by council two years ago. The proposed rezoning, which Shepherd and a majority of council opposed, would have allowed highrise development in a four-block area of downtown. It was defeated at final reading by the current council shortly after it was elected in early 2009 following nearly three years of study and delay and support by the previous council in its early stages.

ing an election, Shepherd said that she was happy with how her campaign was conducted. While both Gray and Shepherd took the high road in exchanges with each other, their respective supporters did attack each candidate harshly at times, especially in the waning days of the campaign. Gray was targeted for how he dealt with proclamations in the past and Shepherd was criticized for refusing campaign donations from developers but accepting them, and then returning them, from the firefighter’s union. Like Gray, Shepherd said the public obviously wanted a change on council, both at the top and among the councillors, and the election result reflected that. The voter turnout was 33 per cent, much higher than the 19.4 per cent in 2008. Shepherd praised the incumbents who were not re-elected for the work they have done on council over the last three years, saying she felt they all contributed greatly to their city and had served their community well. The new council will be sworn in Dec. 5. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

STAFF REPORTER

A new report that highlights a high rate of child poverty should be viewed by local politicians as a call to action, says a member of the organization that penned the document. “One in five children live in poverty. All levels of government need to hear this information because family friendly policies are a huge part of the solution,” said Myrna Kamakoff, a representative of Community Action Toward Children’s Health, which released the State of the Child report on Friday. The document examines rates of pre-natal smoking, teen pregnancy and obesity, among other things. Key to the entire report, however, is the plain fact that 22 per cent of local children lived in poverty in 2009—a slight decrease from the 26 per cent child poverty rate in 2000. Some of the root causes for the high, albeit improved, rate of poverty is the Okanagan’s much lamented high cost of living contrasted against typically low wages. New to the last dec-

ade, however, are global inflationary pressures. “Between 2004 and 2010, food prices have gone up 43 per cent,” she said. “Child care costs have also risen. So when you put those things together, you can see there’s a huge struggle for young families.” Struggles often lead parents of young children into longer work hours, to make up the shortcoming. That, in turn, leads to other problems said Kalmakoff. “If both parents have to work, they have a thing called time poverty, and often it’s easier to do fast food, which does contribute to obesity,” she said. “Obesity isn’t just overeating, but also engaging in less physical activity. We’re driving places, instead of getting out and walking and sometimes our children are spending more time on screens, because we need to get dinner ready.” Although there are dismal aspects of modern realities, Kalmakoff said there have been improvements in many of the test areas and government policies have helped. For example, the percentage of women who smoke while pregnant has dropped as education campaigns ramped up. More locally, council policies that put an emphasis on green transit have also helped families. “Improved transit services, more sidewalks

and bike lanes, are good news,” she said. “Our ability to move around without cars, helps with our health and is more cost efficient.” With that and the recent election in mind, Kalmakoff said she’s hoping the good-work already done, continues on into the future, despite the municipal shake-up. “When we support children and families now, there are longterm and short-term benefits to business,” she said, acknowledging that a number of newly elected councillors ran on a business first platform. For empirical evidence supporting Kalmakoff’s claim, United Way education director Harry Grossmith offered up some of his organization’s research. “Our research has shown, for every dollar we invest in children 0 to 6, the return is roughly $7,” he said. “By acting on prevention early, we have an opportunity to invest in children to ensure that they don’t use those services that are required later on when they experience difficulties. “ For example, children who have strong support in their early years are less likely to engage in detrimental behaviours, and avoid drug and alcohol addictions. “They have the greater potential to be productive adults, and in turn are a real plus for any society to have,” he said.

With gasoline and diesel prices soaring, truck fleet operators in B.C. are discovering the benefits of converting to natural gas. Politicians from B.C., Alberta and the northwestern U.S. took a break from their annual economic region meeting last Thursday to look at the latest vehicles to switch to natural gas. The vehicles use converted diesel engines, which run on natural gas at half the cost of diesel or gasoline. The particulates of diesel are eliminated along with about a third of the greenhouse gas emissions of conventional fuels. Among the vehicles on display was a school bus that was driven from

trucks have been converted, and a fuelling station has been installed by gas company FortisBC in the Waste Management’s Coquitlam yard. Waste Management is realizing 50 per cent savings, the trucks have similar range to diesel models, and the company looks forward to converting the rest of its 100-truck fleet, Sadler said. Abbotsford-based Vedder Transport has taken the technology a step further, using liquefied natural gas rather than compressed gas in its fleet of delivery trucks for milk and other food products. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said his ministry is looking at natural gas as a fuel source for BC Ferries, BC transit buses and other uses. The abundance of

“I believe liquefied natural gas will be the transportation fuel of the future,” Lekstrom said. Chilliwack MLA Barry Penner has been an advocate of natural gas vehicles for years. He notes that IMW In-

dustries, a Chilliwack firm that builds and exports natural gas compressors and filling stations around the world, has outgrown its plant in only two years and is building a second one. Jobs, Tourism and In-

novation Minister Pat Bell said on his recent trip to China, he visited an IMWbuilt natural gas filling station, one of about 50 that have opened in the country. tfletcher@blackpress.com

NEWS ▼ OKANAGAN LAKE

Model reflects how lake could be drained out Judie Steeves

who is a member of the Okanagan Water Stewardship Council, reported to the council at its November meeting on preliminary uses of the model to illustrate different scenarios. For instance, they’ve tried the model with all existing water licences in the basin fully used, and found that we run out of water, he said. In other words, if all users used all the water they’re entitled to, Okanagan Lake would drop or downstream users would be cut off—even if they have prior entitlements. In B.C., water licences are based on a principal called FITFIR—First In Time, First In Right. That means the first licences issued have priority over the most recent licences issued. Some of the older licences, however, are downstream, in the Osoyoos and Penticton areas, so it would be challen-

STAFF REPORTER

There’s only a shortage of water in the Okanagan Valley during a drought year and even then only during a critical few weeks in August— but they are critical— so water supplies in the Okanagan Basin must be managed so the lake isn’t drained down during that period. Such scenarios and the impact of them can now be defined thanks to the information gathered in the valley’s water supply and demand model and the Water Evaluation And Planning (WEAP) system which can be used to simulate demand and how different factors influence supply. Brian Guy of Summit Environmental Consultants, which managed the water supply and demand project for the Okanagan Basin Water Board, and

ging to enforce FITFIR in times of a water shortage to prevent upstream users in Kelowna and Vernon from first taking more than their entitlement. “Okanagan Lake is managed to supply downstream users, yet we’re beginning to mine the lake in some years, and the kokanee wouldn’t like that,” Guy told council members. Another scenario involved making it a priority that the needs of fish for adequate water in valley streams take precedence over other uses of water in the basin. They found that it wouldn’t have affected other users between 1996 and 2006. Water supply and demand data from that period was used to run the model. “We found that would not have negatively affected any other water users in that period, so any mistrust (about giving fish flows a top priority) was

“All valley utilities are linked,” he said, so better coordination and more efficient management in times of shortages is possible when they’re all working together.

He also didn’t have any new information on the long-gun that was found Nov. 1, by a construction crew clearing brush on a lot at the corner of Highland Drive and Clifton Road. At the time of its discovery, a 10-member tactical squad conducted a thorough ground search on their hands and knees, sifting through the dirt with their fingers to find more evidence relating to the gun. The rifle was to be forensically examined at a RCMP lab to determine if it is linked to any crime. Holmes said there’s no new information on that file.

Brain injury survivor offers insights to students Discussing solutions to ‘‘ life’s challenges Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Students at Mount Boucherie left the gymnasium inspired on Friday after hearing David McGuire’s story. In 2005 McGuire sustained a traumatic brain injury, was in a coma for a week and had to have part of his skull removed to let his brain swell. At the time, doctors told McGuire’s family that he may never walk or talk again. McGuire has long since proved that theory false as he is currently in the process of completing his Run to Remember: A marathon a day across Canada through all kinds of weather. Since beginning in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 1, McGuire has logged over 6,500 km on foot. And it hasn’t been easy. “I’ve had days where I’ve said, ‘Why am I doing this? Is anybody noticing? What’s the point?’” During the tough days, McGuire said he thinks of people such as Terry Fox, who have attempted the journey in far worse circumstances. On Friday, McGuire took a break from running to share his experience with students in West Kelowna. He told about the struggles that he has endured since his injury six years ago. He told students that his short-term memory loss is very similar to the movies 50 First Dates or Memento. The students were a captive audience as McGuire explained that he has visited the grocery

store and then forgotten why he was there. According to McGuire, he shares his story with young people because they are at the highest risk. If you specifically look at brain injuries, 88 per cent of them come from 18 to 25-year-olds. (They are) mostly from taking risks and not wearing a helmet,” said McGuire. “If I can get these guys to prevent what I’ve gone through, then it’s worth it.” In Kelowna last Thursday, McGuire spoke to students at Kelowna Senior Secondary School about the importance of brain injury prevention. His presentation was followed by a short run with all 600 Grade 10 students from the school. His appearance at KSS was followed up by a lunch hosted by BDO and a reception later that day at the Best Western Hotel where he had the opportunity to ‘roll in’ with members of the Okanagan Roller Derby. Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd also declared Nov. 17 as A Run to Remember Day.

A guest speaker with the Inner Peace Movement is bringing a message of finding inner contentment to Kelowna this month. Philip Ponchet, national director of the Inner Peace Movement of Canada, will speak here Nov. 29, 1 and 7:30 p.m., at the Best Western Hotel. “Trust your intuition and inner contentment will follow, the experience can have a life altering effect that can be felt to the core of who we are,” Ponchet says. “We need to explore the potential each of us has within and learn to trust ourselves, not think that someone else has the answers for us or is going to take care of us. “We all have the ability to sense what is right for us as long as we stay relaxed and listen to ourselves. “The Inner Peace Movement offers people practical tools and techniques to trust themselves, have patience and find a sense of fulfillment in all that they do.” Even when it is difficult we can find solutions, Ponchet believes. Things will work out because when we are relaxed, inspirations will come to us that will help us find solutions to chal-

KDSCL fundraiser hits the right note Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

When Teena Ree Gowdy met Curtis Tulman, both were proud parents of disabled sons and both were committed to their music— Tulman as a member of the Cruzeros, Gowdy as a jazz singer. “He was a wild guy,” said Gowdy, who used to watch the Cruzeros play at their old stomping grounds, the Corner Pin Inn in Rutland. The Cruzeros were a huge and almost instant hit when they released their first CD in the mid-90s, earning themselves a Juno award for Country Group of the Year among a string of accolades. It took them five years to come out with their second album. Though their sophomore effort, El Nino, earned a Canadian Independent Music Award for Best Country Album, in the intervening years, Tulman’s son, Lukas, had passed away having finally succumbed to the cancerous brain tumour that first paralyzed him, then stole his hearing as he struggled through surgeries and treatments that left him disabled. “He was a remarkable guy,” said Tulman, noting the five years they had with their son after his diagnosis were special years despite the struggles. Gowdy and Tulman remained friends after Lukas was gone, and she watched as the Cruzeros crazy frontman began to change. “He had a turnaround in his

life…then the next thing I knew they were doing Cowboy Bob, singing oldie jazz, Moon River, that sort of thing.” Cowboy Bob, Tulman’s current band, sounds like it would be a country band, but nothing could be further from the truth. The band does succumb to those twangy roots from time to time, but mostly they play jazz, swing, and whatever else sounds great on guitar. The should is a little bit of everything and it should go over really well when combined with Gowdy’s jazz and blues stylings and her daughter Julia Gowdy-Harnett’s dance moves in a fundraiser designed to bolster the Kelowna and District Society for Community Living’s coffers so they can eventually build new digs. KDSCL is an advocacy organization which tries to help those with disabilities participate and contribute to society as equal members of the community. They offer a wide range of services, from employment programs to the bi-monthly dances at Parkinson Recreation Centre that Gowdy’s son enjoys. KDSCL was the big winner of the Juicy Give, a $100,000 jackpot they received in a radio contest staged a couple of years back; but the group needs significantly more money to move from their small building into one that meets their needs. And so, this year, when Gowdy decided to host another Christmas extravaganza—she’s thrown two others— she decided the money would go to the society.

Her daughter, a mother of a sixyear-old son herself, immediately jumped on board, saying her experiences being a sister to someone with severe disabilities have taught her to have compassion for others and made her a better mother. “I feel like I’m compelled to do this because it’s something that means a lot to me and my family,” she said. Gowdy-Harnett was on So You Think You Can Dance Canada a couple of season back and is now chasing her dreams as a Latin dancer. Dancing the samba, cha cha, rumba, pasodoble and jive, she and new partner Matthew Michaelski have been madly preparing for their first competition in New York in January with hopes of making it to the Blackpool Dance Festival, the largest ballroom competition in the world, by May. The fundraiser will include music from Gowdy’s Christmas CD This is Christmas and runs Nov. 27 at 2 p.m. (matinee performance) and 7 p.m. Entertainment will include the Cowboy Bob Band with guest Jana Luksts on violin and Gowdy-Harnett and partner. The event takes place at the Laurel Packing House; tickets are $25 and $15 for KDSCL associates or those 65 and older. They are available at the KDSCL office (925 Sutherland Avenue) and Rutland Curves (150 Hollywood Road) and Lonnie’s Drum Studio (1751 Harvey Avenue).

OKANAGAN ROCKETS forward Parker Bowles battles with a Vancouver player during major midget action in Kelowna this weekend.

The Okanagan Rockets saw an eight game unbeaten streak come to a crashing end on the weekend as the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs came into Kelowna and skated away with a win and a tie in B.C. Major Midget League action. The Chiefs defeated the Rockets 6-2 on Sunday, scoring the game’s last five goals after coming from behind on Saturday to tie the Rockets 5-5. The weekend saw the Rockets earn just a single point and fall back in the BCMML standings “Things are so tight at

the top, you just can’t afford to have a weekend like this” said general manager David Michaud. “Especially considering the circumstances around the tie on Saturday and the fact that we had two leads in this contest today. “We simply have to be better in all facets of our game if we plan on establishing ourselves as one of the elite teams in this league.” On Saturday the Rockets led 4-1 after the second period at the Capital News Centre before watching Vancouver come all the way back to tie the game

with a 4-3 win in Kelowna. Renner, Kyle Clerke and Phil Bamber scored for Kelowna in the loss. The Chiefs record now sits at 10-13-0-1 as they get set to return to action Friday when they travel to Summerland. The Chiefs play Princeton on Saturday at Rutland Arena.

Kyle Bergsma and Mitch Olsen blocked well from the middle, the tandem of Justin Peasron and Cameron Lawrence shared the other starting power hitter spot with their best play of the year, and Dale Flowers-Johnson was a rock in the backrow with his calm, steady demeanor and excellent defense as the libero. Cole Meek, Riley Ca-

George Elliot looks to improve on last year’s fourth place finish at the “A”, “AA”, and “AAA” Provincial Championships which run from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3 at various local high schools including George Elliot as well as UBCO.

Warriors drop two weekend games on road The Westside Warriors struggles continued as the B.C. Hockey League team dropped a pair of games on the road this weekend and have now lost nine straight games with the BCHL season now over one-third completed. The Warriors earned a single point when it lost 5-4 in double overtime to Chilliwack on Saturday. But despite holding a 3-1 lead after the first and a 4-3 lead after two periods, Westside couldn’t snap its losing streak in Chilliwack. On Friday Westside lost 6-3 in Langley and now sit at 7-10-0-

4, sixth place in the eight team BCHL Interior. Warriors defenceman Peter MacIntosh admits his team is rattled by the losing skid but he says his team is doing a lot of things well. “It’s really frustrating, but we’ve just to keep working,” said the 20 yearold blueliner. “It’s going to come, if we keep working as team.” Shawn Hochhausen, Richard Vanderhoek, Travis Blanleil (SH), and Garrett Skrbich scored for the Warriors on Saturday in Chilliwack while Blanleil, Tyler Krause and

Izaak Berglund had Westside’s goals on Friday. The Warriors have now dropped nine straight hockey games, while outshooting their opponents in the past eight. “It’s coming,” said Richard Vanderhoek of the latest setback, adding “I feel we’re pretty unlucky right now. There’s a lot of pressure around here, and the boys are feeling it, but once we get than one [win], we’re going to go.” The Warriors host Merritt on Wednesday night before a home-andhome series against Trail next weekend.

UBC Okanagan coach Darren Semeniuk, although disappointed in the loss, had positive things to say about his team after the game. “I’m proud of my guys; it is really hard to come out in the second half and play hard when you are down 30. It was definitely a character building moment.” After back to back weekends on the road the Heat finally have a chance to play on their home court.

SPORTS ▼ BOBSLEIGH

Kripps blazing start a winner Summerland’s Justin Kripps showed he will be a force to be reckoned with in this year’s bobsleigh circuit, medaling in all four events in the season’s opener of the 20112012 international bobsleigh competition. Kripps won two gold medals in the two man bobsleigh as well as a gold and bronze medal in the four man bobsleigh at America’s Cup Races held in Park City Utah. In just his second season in the driver’s seat Kripps not only took gold in the first race but he and teammate Jesse Lumsden broke the Olympic track start record, one of the longest standing bobsleigh records, set at the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002. In the first heat the Canadians came close to the record of 4.79 secs with a push of 4.8 seconds. Word quickly spread and a crowd gathered at the top of the track hoping to see a new record set. They weren’t disappointed. With the crowd cheering them on Kripps and Lumsden surged to a 4.77 second start and roared down the track to take the first gold medal, edging out the home town USA teams who took second and third place. The record breaking start has already made it onto Youttube and can be seen via fa link on Justin’s website (justinkripps.ca). Kripps and Lumsden repeated their strong performance again the next day with another gold medal. Trying out a new rsled and with two new fteam members, they team took the bronze medal in the first four-man event of the season. But on the final day of the event, they rproved to be quick learners and after adjusting to kthe new conditions roared to gold again. Kripps is elated with his team’s performance. “We were hoping to make top three but since we had new equipment and a team who had never competed together before it was a bit of an unknown,” he said. “Three gold and a bronze…yes we are happy. And a track record, that was something we didn’t really extpect. That means Jesse and I pushed faster than all the top guys who have ever been here..Olympians…World Cham-

pions… It’s a pretty good start to the season.” There were 22 mens teams competing in the 4-day event from 10 countries. Kripps and two of his teammates headed straight to the airport after the final race, on to Austria to compete in the Europa Cup. Lumsden headed back to Calgary to crew with Lyndon Rush in the upcoming World Cup events. Kripps will be spending the next five weeks in Europe competing at five different Europa Cup events and learning the idiosyncracies of the different tracks. Although he has been down these tracks before it was as a brakeman, not a pilot. “A lot to learn” says Kripps “I don’t get a day off for five weeks but I am ready for it.” Kripps and Lumsden will receive official acknowledgement of their record-breaking performance with a certificate from the International Bobsleigh Federation.

Falcons schedule is set for 2012 West Coast League baseball season The Kelowna Falcons’ have released their schedule for the 2012 West Coast League baseball season. The Falcons will once again play 54 games, 27 of those at Elks Stadium. Kelowna will play all eight teams in the WCL, both home and away, and will play their Eastern Division rivals in four-game series (Bellingham, Walla Walla and Wenatchee). For the fourth consecutive season the Falcons will start on the road. This season they will visit Longview/Kelso, Wash. to face the Cowlitz Black Bears June 6 to 8 to open the year. The rest of the WCL begin their season on June 1, which gives the Falcons players and coaching staff a chance to get familiar with each other and play a couple of exhibition games. These games will be announced at a later date, as will the traditional free home opener game. The Falcons will get their first look at the defending Eastern Division pennant winners, the Walla Walla Sweets on Tuesday, June 19 at Elks Stadium in a four game series. The defending WCL champion Corvallis Knights make their visit to Kelowna on Friday, July 6. The Wenatchee Applesox won’t be in Kelowna until the final regular season home series, July 29 to Aug. 1. “We like the schedule and are excited to see how our players adapt to the four game series,” said Falcons GM Mark Nonis. “I’ve always liked starting on the road and the fact we start in Cowlitz gives our guys a taste of life on the road in the WCL. I know coach Cantwell and Gage will have our guys ready to go to improve on last season. Now that the schedule has been released we can begin to plan the rest of the summer.” “We feel this schedule is extremely attractive for our fans,” said WCL president Ken Wilson. “We are emphasizing games within each division late in the season, which should add to the excitement of the races for play-off spots.” The Falcons new ticket program, Group Double Play, has attracted a number of businesses to register. Groups of 20 or more (date dependant) can enjoy a game, a hotdog, pop and a bag of chips for just $10. Contact Ryan Watters at the Falcons headquarters and book your group party today.

Ringette team shares funds with community Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

A U12 Kelowna girls ringette team has proved that there is no I in team. The Phantoms recently held a couple of fundraisers to raise money for costs such as tournaments and practice gear. But the young ladies’ hard work and unselfishness resulted in an ability to help out the greater community as well. “This year we saw that we did quite well, so we figured that we would give back to the community,” said one of the Phantoms’ coaches, Steve Gregory. The fundraising effort included a bottle drive and a pub night silent auction fundraiser that parents of the girls took part in. One stop on the bottle drive helped quickly boost the team’s funds. “At one stop on our bottle drive we did very well. There was someone there and they had way

more than we would take; we felt uncomfortable taking them all.” Gregory said that the team took approximately 30 per cent of the bottles and then decided that they would give the community back some of the money they had raised. “This team seems to have a real social conscience. We’re going to the food bank with $200 worth of groceries.” The Phantoms chose the food bank because they didn’t want to see anyone going hungry over the holiday season. According to Gregory, the Phantoms also wanted to help the Kelowna Ringette Association. “We’re donating one register for next year, so that’s a $350 value.” The other money raised will help the team fund some of their basic needs, such as tournament fees. “I’m really proud of the kids,” said Gregory.

n Nov. 8, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty delivered his latest economic update, providing a window into Canada’s current economic health. The good news is that Canada weathered the global recession better than most other industrialized countries and is the only G-7 country to have more than recovered both all of the output and all of the jobs lost during the recession. However, the economic turmoil being felt globally as a result of the sovereign debt and banking crisis in Europe is having an effect. Growth of the global economy has slowed and, as a result, private sector economists have revised down their outlook for Canadian economic growth since the 2011 budget.

Ron Cannan Canada’s real gross domestic product (GDP) is now expected to grow by 2.2 per cent in 2011 and 2.1 per cent in 2012. The deterioration of the global economic situation is also impacting Canadian employment, which remains almost unchanged since July 2011. That is why the Government will remain focused on supporting jobs and growth, despite the fact that nearly 600,000 more Canadians are

working today than when the recession ended. Although EI rates were expected to rise by 10 cents, the government has announced that it will reduce the increase in Employment Insurance (EI) premium rates in 2012 from 10 cents to five cents. This will mean savings for employers and employees and will strike the necessary balance between supporting our economic recovery and ensuring that the EI program breaks even over time. It is also welcome news to local companies that Work-Sharing will be extended. Work-Sharing allows temporary layoffs when there is a reduction in the normal level of business activity that is beyond the control of the employer. The measure provides income support to em-

ployees eligible for Employment Insurance benefits who work a temporarily reduced workweek while their employer recovers. Other initiatives, like the recently announced Hiring Credit for Small Business and investments in local economic engines like Accelerate Okanagan will also provide the incentives employers and entrepreneurs need to create jobs and grow new businesses. And I was pleased to learn that four companies in our riding, including automobile parts manufacturer Marshall Innovations Limited, have received almost $145,000 in funding through the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP). While global uncertainty persists, ongoing efforts by local companies and support from the government should give us confidence that we are responding in a flexible and measured manner to support Canadian jobs and growth. At the same time, the government is following through on its deficit reduction action plan in order to achieve at least $4 billion in ongoing annual savings by 2014–15. These savings will support the government’s commitment to return to budgetary balance over the medium term. I’ll be meeting soon with Flaherty to give him recommendations on other measures to promote job creation and to ensure that your tax dollars are not wasted on duplication, inefficient operating expenses and programs that have outgrown their usefulness. If you have any suggestions in this regard, I’d be more than happy to share them with the minister. Just drop me a line at ron@cannan.ca. And congratulations to all the newly elected and re-elected members of council. I look forward to working together to keep our taxes low, grow our economy and create jobs. The bottom line is that there is only one tax payer. We are all in this together and I am confident that if we continue to proceed as we have, we will come out of this global turmoil stronger than ever. Ron Cannan is the Conservative MP for Kelowna-Lake Country.

Ground breaking research Research with worldwide implications and the potential to improve the lives of millions of people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) will begin in the Okanagan in the New Year. Neil Eves has been awarded a substantial grant from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research to study how exercise impacts COPD. Eves will receive up to $635,000 over the next eight years to allow him to examine this important line of inquiry. The assistant professor in exercise physiologist with the School of Health and Exercise Sciences at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus, says the research program is highly novel and he plans to begin the long-term project in January. “It’s answering a lot of questions others have not looked at yet,” says Eves. “We have no idea if exercise has any effect on modifying the primary causes of the disease.” COPD is an inflam-

As the disease progresses, patients suffer from increased shortness of breath to the point where they struggle to breathe even while at rest. Smoking is the primary cause of COPD, but Eves said it can be triggered by any particulate matter that is frequently breathed in, damaging the lungs. “This is just the start.

Best Buy making a big splash with new store The newest entry in the home electronics retail market, Best Buy, is officially opening its doors on Friday. The store actually had what is called a “soft opening” last week at its Orchard Park Shopping Centre location, giving the store and staff members a chance to work out the kinks before the grand opening splash. And that splash for Best Buy starts this weekend with a variety of special sales and events. On the entertainment event side, to celebrate the nearly 1,900 square feet of musical instrument department space in the new Best Buy, the store will sponsor a concert by singer Andrew Allen, joined by We Are The City, Calum Hughes, Jeff Piattelli and Mark Irving.

The concert takes place Saturday at The Habitat, 6:45 p.m., in downtown Kelowna, with tickets available at Best Buy on Wednesday or Thursday. Each day, the first 100 people at customer service will receive two free tickets to the show. And Vancouver Canucks fans can get the autograph of Alex Burrows on Sunday. The first 250 people in line at the store before 2 p.m. will have a chance to get Burrows’ signature. Best Buy also plans to donate $5,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Okanagan as part of the Kelowna store’s grand opening festivities. Since 2002, the company has donated millions of dollars and thousands of employee volunteer

hours to charitable organizations focused on youth. The goal of the Best Buy for Kids giving program is to help kids succeed and reach their full potential. As for store merchandise promotions, the first people to line up at the store on Friday, before 9:45 a.m., Saturday, before 8:45 a.m. or Sunday, before 9:45 a.m, will have a chance to win a $1,000 Best Buy Gift Card each day. There will be a draw on Sunday for a Smart TV and 3D home theatre package. Shoppers receive an additional ballot for every purchase made throughout the day. Plus, one $250 Best Buy gift card will be given away each hour.

A recent case heard in the B.C. Supreme Court laid out some of the factors to be considered in instances when fired employees claim an entitlement to moral damages. Haftbaradaran was employed as the winemaker at St. Hubertus Estate Winery Ltd. During a stressful harvest period, Haftbaradaran and his employer had what could be characterized as a workplace blow-up. The circumstances were heated, Haftbaradaran was emotional and agitated, and the employer instructed him not to blow things out of proportion. The employer asked Haftbaradaran to leave the office, he refused, and this led to him being called a “pain in the ass” and being told, forcefully, to get out of the office and get back to making wine.

The court rejected Haftbaradaran’s claim for “moral damages consequent to the manner by which his employment was terminated.” It cited the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2008 decision involving Honda Canada Inc, for the premise that moral damages are only available when “the employer engages in conduct during the course of dismissal that is unfair or is in bad faith by being, for example, untruthful, misleading or unduly insensitive.”

Haftbaradaran broke down emotionally and, after the conversation continued, the employer suggested to him that perhaps he should go look for another job. Haftbaradaran reacted by putting his keys on the desk, effectively inviting the employer to fire him, and walked out with the parting words, “good luck making wine.” The employer took the view that Haftbaradaran had resigned and followed up with an email attempting to establish the date on which he would be leaving his employment. Haftbaradaran’s view was that St. Hubertus had terminated his employment. Haftbaradaran sued for wrongful dismissal and the Court upheld his claim, finding that St. Hubertus effectively terminated the employment re-

Time is now to get a head start on year-end tax planning Y ear-end investment decisions can result in substantial tax savings. Now is the time prior to Dec 31, 2011, to get your financial record keeping in order. Dec. 31 is the deadline for clients who turn age 71 this year to convert your RRSP to a RRIF. If you have a younger spouse, and your goal is to keep your RRIF income paid at the lowest mandatory RRIF pay-

bution. If you have a spouse or partner who is under age 72, you can contribute to a spousal RRSP, providing contribution room is available. If your income is lower in pre-retirement, you may choose to decide to take additional income from your RRSP or your RRIF in a year when your income is lower. These are effective tax planning strategies. For individuals over

age 65, ensure $2,000 retirement income qualifies as pension income so you can claim the maximum pension credit. It is a nice financial bonus to receive $2,000 income per year and offset it with this pension credit. Pension income can be split for tax efficiency. CPP (Canada Pension Plan) should be split to equal income with your spouse. This is done at the CPP office. You can minimize

overall taxes by shifting income to family members in lower tax brackets. Sell securities with accrued losses before year end to offset capital gains realized in the current year or previous three years. With capital gains, sell in years when your income is lower as a tax planning strategy. Use corporate class funds every year to avoid the annual taxation on funds and stocks. Don’t give away your gains each year to Canada Revenue Agency. Keep your receipts to verify your expenses. CRA can ask for proof to back up your annual electronic filing submissions. The TFSA (Tax Free Savings Account) is a valuable tax free savings

account. Unfortunately many Canadians hold low paying interest paying accounts that pay one per cent annually. This is a good time to review what is held in your TFSA, to ensure you maximize the tax efficiency offered within your TFSA. In order to deduct any investment related expenses, they must be paid before Dec. 31. Tax deductible expenses include: interest paid on money borrowed for investing, investment counseling fees for nonregistered accounts, professional accounting services for business or rental income, and safety deposit box rental fees. Giving to charity can reduce your tax bill. You

can choose to donate to a registered charity of your choice. Gifting publicly traded securities, including mutual funds, with accrued capital gains to a registered charity or a private foundation will provide you with a tax receipt and also will eliminate any capital gain tax. Before we get too caught up in the spirit of the holidays, spend some time reviewing your year end tax planning strategies. Canadians pay too much tax throughout their lifetime. Make sure you do your year-end tax planning before Dec. 31. Doreen Smith is a CFP with Capri Wealth Management Inc. 250-869-3825 www.DoreenSmithCFP.com

JYSK celebrates reaching the 50-store mark in Canada JYSK CAR CONTEST

JYSK, the Scandinavian-based retailer with over 1,850 locations worldwide including their Kelowna store in Dilworth Plaza, is celebrating the 50th store opening in Canada with the Big 50 contest. During the month of November, customers can enter for a chance to win one of two Ford Fiestas or one of two $2,000 JYSK gift cards. JYSK is also offering big savings on a wide selection of products as part of the Big 50 event. The first Canadian JYSK store opened 15 years ago in the Lower Mainland community of Port Coquitlam.

Since then, the company has expanded rapidly, now with a coast-tocoast presence from B.C. to Nova Scotia and plans for further growth over the next several years. In addition to the “brick-and-mortar” stores, JYSK ships anywhere in Canada from its online store at www.jysk.ca. “At JYSK you don’t have to sacrifice comfort and style for affordability. JYSK, customers will find everything they need for their home at great prices; from furniture and mattresses to towels, bed linen and drapes. Duvets and pillows are a JYSK trademark since we are the world’s largest buyers of these products. We

carry a great assortment of gifts, and décor items, and because we buy very large volumes around the world, we can offer our customers the lowest prices possible,” said Lynne Williams, JYSK’s director of advertising.

SPIRIT AWARD

The spirit of Kelowna award for November goes to Jennifer Monaghan who with her fellow volunteers at the First Lutheran Christian School, 4901 Lakeshore Rd., organized the 15th annual Apple Pie event to raise funds for the school’s playground and sports field upgrades and classroom technology.

In that 2008 decision, the Supreme Court of Canada stated that behaviour giving rise to moral damages might include “attacking the employee’s reputation by declarations made at the time of dismissal, misrepresentation regarding the reason for the decision, or dismissal meant to deprive the employee of a pension benefit or other right…” The court could not find the conduct of St. Hubertus towards Haftbaradaran to be unfair or unduly sensitive. Perhaps most importantly, the court found that moral damages should not

flow from the employer’s “honest mistake” in believing that Haftbaradaran had resigned from his employment. Haftbaradaran was unsuccessful in his claim for moral damages but the court’s comments provided useful guidance for employers in handling terminations in stressful, emotional circumstances.

BUSINESS ▼ ENTREPRENEURS

Running a business team requires some tough decisions M

uch of my research over the years has supported the idea that the new venture creation process is quite often precipitated by a team of entrepreneurs rather than the individual zealot. t So as not to mislead you, an entrepreneurial team may be defined as two or more individuals who jointly envisage an opportunity and create an entrepreneurship venture in which they have a financial interest. After dabbling in this team thought, I wanted to remind all of us of the importance and relevance of entrepreneurial leadership in this same context, and how important this ingredient is to creating the entrepreneurial mindset. For an entrepreneurial leader, building a great team is crucial to successful launch and growth of a new venture. Early stage teams without such substantive leadership never seem to have the complete recipe of skills needed to take the perceived opportunity talong its new pathway. So, let’s get into some key questions and comments regarding creating rthe entrepreneurial “go” team. First, let’s identify

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young what skills we need? How do we find, attract and engage the best talent for our new venture? And critically perhaps, as the entrepreneurial leader, how do we motivate, lead and retain the created team toward our version of victory? Let me explain that entrepreneurial leaders are distinguished from other managers by their personal practices. Such practices fall into three categories I have discovered—setting the entrepreneurial work climate; orchestrating the venture opportunity-seeking and moving the new venture or ventures personally forward. Getting strategic in deciding what skills we need to make our dream venture become a reality is a great start to team creation. For example, what will make your new venture different from the perceived competition? What capabilities will

be crucial to your success? What skills must you have on your team to achieve your goals, to create value and, of course, to protect that newly created value? Simply put, you need to design, through a good strategy a target culture for the new venture. Let’s also try getting tactical, meaning to get your wonder team together and build a specification or a list of responsibilities for each key position in your new venture makeup. For example, make certain the parts add up to the whole. Assess how well the collective talent you have assembled matches up with what you will need to succeed during the early stages of your entrepreneurial launch. Then, I would like to suggest that you get the best. Depending on the stage of your venture and how much money you can and want to spend, your approach to finding the right candidate will vary. You will need to be proactive and aggressive while you are evaluating a potential team membership. After all, it is your business “dream ma-

chine” that you are creating. Appeal to your candidates need to win and appeal to not only their technical skills but their own values and cultural beliefs as well. Two more ingredients make up my recommended go team make-up recipe. Take a personal role in motivating and retaining this team you have created. It’s your job as the entrepreneurial leader in your new exciting venture creation. The way that you lead your team will be the most important factor. Share your vision and be open about the challenge. Share your entrepreneurial passion and demonstrate your determination. Teach and mentor, share your talent and perhaps, most important of all, demonstrate humility. You want to “hear” clearly and unmistakably what your new team may be telling you. Finally, a difficult step for many serial entrepreneurs is the need to get tough. Try your best to objectively evaluate each team member annually and update their list of re-

sponsibilities. Do hold people accountable. It’s really not that hard to know when you may need to change some element within your core team, but, it is very hard to decide to do it. I have had to during some of the periods of my entrepreneurial life and the decisions remained with me for a time.

Not enjoyable, but necessary I can assure you. In closing this week, please accept the absolute reality as a new entrepreneur, you cannot expect to succeed with everyone. If your new venture is changing rapidly, your needs change just as rapidly. But please, always make a needed change

NEWS ▼ CHRISTMAS SEALS

Campaign to stamp out lung disease For more than 100 years, the Lung Association, Canada’s oldest charity, has been using the holiday-themed seals on their mail in order to both raise awareness of and funds for lung disease. In the early days, the Association battled tuberculosis. Today the mission of the B.C. Lung Association is to promote lung health and clean air and support the growing number of British Columbians struggling with breath-

‘‘

ing problems including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and sleep apnea. “Christmas Seals are a very visible way of showing that people care about the continuing fight against lung disease,” said Walda Reszitnyk, a B.C. Lung Association volunteer director for the Kelowna region. “Our fundraising target for the 2011 campaign is $1 million. “We’re urging people

to give as much as they can to help us maintain the important lung health research and community education and patient support programs we deliver year round.” The money raised through donations to Christmas Seals is put to careful use funding medical research into the treatment and prevention of lung disease, patient support programs and services in communities across British Columbia, and helping children choose a

smoke-free lifestyle. Those wishing to make a donation can do so by calling 1-800-6655864 or visiting www. bc.lung.ca. The B.C.

Multiculturalism Week is a week worth celebrating in B.C.

A

s you flip through the calendar, you can’t help but notice there are a lot of “recognition weeks.” These are weeks (sometimes days, sometimes months) set up to recognize or raise awareness for special causes and events. The week of Nov. 13 to 19 is one of my favourites every year— Multiculturalism Week in British Columbia. Why celebrate multiculturalism? Multiculturalism is an everyday fact of life for British Columbians and Canadians. But we should never forget that “everyday fact of life” is actually quite extraordinary. We celebrate multi-

Steve Thomson culturalism precisely because it’s an everyday fact of life for those of us fortunate enough to live here. Because peoples from many cultures, backgrounds and traditions living side by side in harmony is something to celebrate. Because we have found that our diversity is perhaps our greatest

strength. Because our everyday way of life so remarkable. In many respects, it’s actually quite wonderful that this has become normal. You don’t have to pay close attention to international headlines to see just how fortunate we are. To my mind, there are two main reasons to celebrate multiculturalism: the support for new British Columbians, and how it enriches and enlivens our communities. Let’s consider what multiculturalism does for new British Columbians first. Each year, B.C. welcomes more than 40,000 new immigrants from around the world.

One of the many reasons immigrants choose to move to Canada is that they can find communities that already feel like home. That’s precisely why organizations like the Kelowna Canadian Italian Club are so valuable. Last weekend, the Italian Club celebrated its 45th anniversary. That’s 45 years of carrying Italian cultural traditions, promoting the Italian language and culture, through food, music, and wine. The club was founded in 1966 by 21 proud Italian Canadians. In 1998, the Club purchased their current home, the Clubhouse, on Lawrence Avenue. The Kelowna Canadian Italian Club is far more than just a social club. They support cultural groups like the Italian Youth Dancers, and Na-

tional Congress of Italian Canadians, but also support causes like the B.C. Summer Games, Variety Club—and raising funds for earthquake victims in Italy and Japan. The provincial government is doing a lot to mark Multiculturalism Week, including the launch of The B.C. Peoples Book, and the Provincial Nesika Awards, which honour and celebrate British Columbia’s cultural diversity and indigenous communities. If you’re interested —or even just a proud British Columbian— I encourage you to find out more at www.embracebc.ca. I was proud and honoured on Saturday to help the Kelowna Canadian Italian Club celebrate 45 years making Kelowna an even better place to live —which brings me to the second reason to celebrate

multiculturalism. From different cultural perspectives down to new and exciting cuisines, it has enriched our cities and towns immeasurably. Good food, delicious

wine, and great company. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate that? Steve Thomson is the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Mission. www.stevethomsonmla.bc.ca

Passion to help others leads to award for UBCO student Young people are curious about sex. It is a natural part of growing up, but not all young people have a trusted advisor they can go to for some advice. That is where Options for Sexual Health (OPT) comes in. The staff and volunteers are trained to help young people navigate the dangers, and joys, of sex. For her tireless work with the organization, Sarah Bryant was recently awarded the OPT Volunteer of the Year Award. OPT has 61 sites throughout the province and hundreds of volunteers. The Master of Arts in Education student at the UBC Okanagan campus has initiated numerous community outreach programs and has built up such a strong rapport with students that they do not hesitate to come to her for

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of students will ask me questions outside of the clinic.â&#x20AC;?

The main clinic is located in the health unit on Ellis Street in downtown

Kelowna, but there is also one on campus in the University Centre, where Bryant is busy helping students in need. One of the main areas of concern is sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and the centre, which is open to all students, not only provides condoms, but instructions on how to properly use them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do a lot of awareness,â&#x20AC;? said Bryant, who has set up seminars in campus residences to educate people about sex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community stuff is a blast. I like the education portion of it.â&#x20AC;? She is a firm believer in providing students with affordable birth control. Bryant is a strong proponent of the need for more sex educationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it is what her masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thesis is onâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially after discovering how many

young people did not know the proper way to put on a condom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The positives about sex need more attention too. There are consequences of sex and we need to say that, but we also need to say we recognize why they (students) want to have sex,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sarah is fabulous, she has absolutely no compunction about talking about sexual healthâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with anyone,â&#x20AC;? added Robert Whiteley, assistant professor with the UBCO Faculty of Education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her work truly is worthwhile and, though frequently seen as a taboo subject, her tenacity, willingness and passion to inform anyone of the issues related to sexual health is unwavering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Currently she is analyzing middle school sex-

ual health curriculum and, based on analysis of best practices, will be making a series of recommendations to improve sexual health education in schools.â&#x20AC;? OPT is open to all men and women regardless of sexual orientation. There are also resources available for pregnant women. For more information on Options, go to www. optionsforsexualhealth. org. Bryant, who writes a sexual health column in campus paper, The Phoenix, also gets a lot of attention for her blog: educationsexpectations.blogspot.com If anyone has sex-related questions, but cannot make it to the clinic either on or off campus, Bryant recommends calling 1-800-SEX-SENSE, where they can ask any questions that need answering.

Volunteer program benefits community Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more to university than books and studying and the Get Involved program wants to help introduce students to the world around them. Michelle Lowton heads up the program that is based in the University Centre at the UBC Okanagan campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Get Involvedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; means will really be determined by the students,â&#x20AC;? says Lowton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to do something that is cool, but that can be different for different people.â&#x20AC;? Often when people consider volunteering they think of traditional charitable organizations, but Lowton says there is a world of opportunity waiting for someone who is willing to give their time. Many volunteering opportunities are non-traditional and cover a broad spectrum of activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the students who come here donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know Kelowna. Part of this is us helping them to know Kelowna better,â&#x20AC;? she says. t â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our students are strong leaders who are interested in contributing to the community. We have a lot of people who are exceptional with certain things, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do with those skills.â&#x20AC;? Human Kinetics student Leah Donatiello r spent the past two summers volunteering in Peru, but she is also active on campus and she recom-

mends other students also sign up to get the most out of their university experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes you feel like you are doing more than just your studies,â&#x20AC;?

she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pick something you are interested in and go with it. Find out what you really like and put your energy into it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really rewarding.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want the centre to be

a place for students to get other students involved,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would also love nonprofit organizations to call us and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We want your students.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

n a past column I discussed one of the exciting new frontiers in research surrounding treatment of depression— deep brain stimulation. Several techniques of deep brain stimulation are currently in experimental stages and have the potential to become valuable tools in the fight against this devastating disorder. Today, I’d like to provide an update on one particularly encouraging form of deep brain stimulation being studied as a treatment for severe, treatment resistant depression. Intracranial electrical stimulation uses implanted electrodes to send electrical stimulus to certain targeted areas in the brain known to be involved in depression. To date there has been limited research into this treatment, but the small studies that have been done have shown some very positive results. The largest study involves just 20 patients who received 6 months of deep brain stimulation. These patients had to be in an episode of major depression for at least one year and failed to respond to at least four different treatments. The initial results showed a 60 per cent response rate with 30 per cent of participants expe-

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer riencing remission. Long term results were also encouraging. After a three and a half year follow up period, the average response rate was 64 per cent with 35 per cent experiencing remission. Physical health and psychosocial functioning were also greatly improved over time and there were no significant adverse events reported. All of this is pretty promising especially because of the difficult and chronic nature of severe treatment resistant depression. Typically, less than 20 per cent of these cases result in remission of symptoms and more than 80 per cent experience relapse in spite of aggressive treatment with available options. Quality of life and functioning are usually quite poor for these individuals. Much more research is needed before deep brain stimulation becomes one of the mainstream options for very

difficult and severe cases of depression, but it is promising to see such positive results to date even after a long term follow up. It is certainly shaping up to be a safe and effective treatment and a beacon of hope for the 30 percent of depression patients who do not respond well to other less invasive treatment options. If you are experiencing depression, there are several proven treatments already available that may provide relief. Speak with your doctor about what options are available to you. Don’t give up hope—help is available. ••• Okanagan Clinical Trials is conducting current studies in investigational treatments for depression.

ens the digestion and causes food to stagnate in the digestive system, leading to the inability for a proper restful sleep, and symptoms such as feeling of oppression in the chest and stomach, no desire to think of food, diarrhea or constipation, abdominal pain, and nighttime bruxism. The other cause of bruxism is a deficient condition of blood and qienergy weakness. The symptoms common in this pattern are pale complexion, dizziness, vertigo, heart palpitations, pale lips and nails and disinclination to sleep. The main differentiation in this pattern is that the teeth grinding would be rather quiet, low, dull sounding, rather than rougher and louder sounding in the excess patterns. Factors that may lead to bruxism are poor diet, weak digestive system, or age. Acupuncture improves bruxism by correcting the functioning of the organs that are excessive or deficient. Points are selected along the energetic meridian of the organ in imbalance. The points can be located on the trunk, limbs and/or face. However, points don’t have to be done on the face or jaw just because this is the area of the symptoms, although local points may be used to relieve muscle tension and pain. Some simple changes to diet and lifestyle habits are also easy, effective ways to increase the results of acupuncture. James Kaufman is a registered acupuncturist in Kelowna

CAPITAL NEWS

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen fishy chowders As the winds begin to blow all the leaves off the trees and the snow level gradually descends down the mountains around the valley to the bottom, thoughts of warm and comforting soups come to mind. And, there’s nothing quite so comforting as a bowl of hot seafood chowder on a blustery day. I know we don’t live next to the sea, but with good highways and dedicated seafood providers, we might as well be, for the fresh fish we have available to us here, now. It wasn’t always that way. But, now that we do have great, fresh seafood available, it’s become important that we do our part to ensure we always will have fresh seafood to include in our diets. That means we are responsible to look for the Ocean Wise logo wherever we buy or eat seafood, to be sure that fish has been caught in a manner that’s sustainable; that doesn’t include bycatch tossed overboard as waste or in any way that will end up depleting the marine life of our oceans. Ocean Wise is a program of the Vancouver Aquarium, where this week it’s being celebrated with a Chowder Chowdown by a dozen chefs and their favourite ocean-friendly chowder recipes, including two from the Okanagan. Codfather’s resident chef, Tyler Groenestyn is one, and Local chef Paul Cecconi is the other. Tyler has shared his chowder recipe with us, so think of him tomorrow as he competes and wish him luck. I too have a couple of favourite chowder recipes, but I’ve used them already in this column, so I went further afield for contributions from others. I hope you enjoy them. My favourite chowders can be found in my new book, Jude’s Kitchen, which is now available in local bookstores, VQA wine shops and winery gift shops. Or, you can pick one up and get me to personalize it at Summerland's newest hotel, the Summerland Waterfront Resort, where Local Lounge is, for the Light up the Vines event this Sat., Nov. 26, 12:30 to 2 p.m. where I'll be demonstrating an appetizer from the book. It would make a great gift.

Gail's Crabby Corn Chowder This version of a classic recipe gets good reviews. This recipe can be doubled to serve a crowd. Exact quantities of ingredients are not critical. 3 slices of lean bacon 2 tsp. (10 ml) olive oil 1 onion, chopped 1 red bell pepper, diced 1 lb. (454 g) potatoes 3 c. (750 ml) chicken stock 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) salt 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) paprika 15 oz. (444 ml) corn, drained 14 oz. (414 ml) creamed corn 1 c.(250 ml) fat-free evaporated milk 3 drops hot pepper sauce 1/2 lb. (240 g) (2 tins) crab meat, drained 2 tbsp. (30 ml) chopped green onions

Heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat and cook coarsely-chopped bacon until crisp. Transfer to paper towel to drain. Cool and then crumble. Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about six minutes. Peel, if necessary, and dice potatoes or use little new potatoes. Add potatoes, chicken broth, salt, paprika and bacon bits to the onion mix and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes. Add the corn, creamed corn, evaporated milk, hot pepper sauce and crab meat and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about two minutes. Remove from heat and add green onions. Serves 4.

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

Tyler's Root Veg Chowder Tyler Groenestyn’s chowder is rich and mellow, full of the earthiness of root vegetables, fresh thyme and sweet seafood. You could make this as a vegetarian chowder, without the seafood, if you wish, but it wouldn’t be the same! We paired this with the Ganton and Larsen Prospect Winery Birch Canoe Pinot Blanc—a match made in heaven, with its crisp citrus flavours, subtle fruit and refreshing finish. 1 c. (250 ml) diced Yukon gold potato 1 c. (250 ml) diced onion 3/4 c. (175 ml) diced carrot 3/4 c. (175 ml) diced parsnip 3/4 c. (175 ml) diced celery root 1/2 lb. (200 g) thick cut diced bacon 2 tbsp. (30 ml) minced garlic 1 bay leaf 1/2 c. (125 ml) butter 1/2 c. (125 ml) flour 12 c. (3 l) fish or shellfish stock

2 c. (1/2 l) whipping cream 3 tbsp. (45 ml) fresh lemon thyme 1 lb. (400 g) fresh seafood Cut root vegetables into dice, about a half-inch. Cook potato three-quarters of the way through and set aside. Over medium heat in a heavy stock pot, render the bacon down. Add onion, carrot, parsnip, celery root, garlic and bay leaf with butter and sweat them off until softened. Add flour and stir for a minute or two until it’s cooked. Slowly add hot stock and bring it to simmering, while stirring. Simmer it for about 15 minutes until the soup has thickened. Remove the bay leaf and add the heavy cream, thyme or lemon thyme and partlycooked potato. Once heated through, add your choice of Ocean Wise seafood, scallops, shrimp, cod, clams, or whatever, and poach them in the chowder for a few minutes. Serves 8.

Some simple guidelines for readers of Jude's Kitchen

There are some basics about my cooking that you should know about in using the recipes created for Jude’s Kitchen. *I mean a large egg when a recipe calls for an egg *usually, butter and margarine are interchangeable *usually, salt and pepper is added to your taste *I generally use sea salt *fresh ingredients top frozen or canned

*organic products are my first choice *wherever possible, I use whole grains, not processed *include a variety of them, when possible *wherever possible, I use fresh herbs *fewer quantities of dried herbs are needed than fresh *I use extra virgin olive oil *I use grapeseed or olive oil to cook with

*I don’t deep fry *feel free to substitute. I do *have fun in the kitchen *encourage others to as well
