Rumours surround fire chief’s exit Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Former fire chief Rene Blanleil’s surprise departure from the City of Kelowna’s employ has lips at city hall sealed. Neither the mayor nor the city manager returned phone calls for comment Thursday, choosing to defer public statements to human resources staff. A news advisory that Blanleil would be leaving after just four years as fire chief was released to the public at the close of business Wednesday and the decision was initially referred to as mutual. “It’s not performance related,” Charlene Covington, director of human resources, said in the immediate aftermath of the press release. But by Thursday morning, Mayor Sharon Shepherd confirmed for a local morning radio show that Blanleil had received a severance package as a result of the decision, and messages on local blogs and other news sites indicated the chief had been ousted due to extreme malcontent within the department. The city will not release how much money the chief, who earned $140,000 annually, will

Rene Blanleil receive, although local lawyer Keri Grenier, who works in employment law with Doak Shirreff, said Kelowna taxpayers can expect to see a substantial dollar figure, should the information come to light. “One month per year of service does not apply. That’s sort of a myth, if you will. To know what he’s entitled to you would have to look at the case law,” she said. With an 18-year service record, including the four as chief, Grenier would expect the settlement would exceed a year’s worth of pay and possibly even two. She cautioned, however, that the presence of a severance itself does not automatically indicate someone has been fired. For some, a severance may simply be writSee Exit A13

Trustees set five-year plan for new schools Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

The wheels have been set in motion for School District 23 to acquire five new school sites over the

next few years. At the school board’s meeting on Wednesday, the school board approved the recommendations of the planning and facilities committee for the submis-

▼ MISSING MAN

Police acknowledge Meisner’s drugs involvement Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

Speculation about some of Geoff Meisner’s activities can be put to rest. To mark six months since the West Kelowna man went missing, Mounties re-issued a plea for tips on Thursday and confirmed that Meisner “was involved in the drug trade.” Following the 33-yearold’s Nov. 27 disappearance, rumours about his activities ran rampant on

Geoff Meisner local Internet chat forums. There, questions were raised about how the selfemployed, MMA fighter made a living.

And he was linked not only to the drug trade but also organized crime, however police wouldn’t speak to that issue. “In the beginning we heard a lot of information that there was drug involvement, but we needed to substantiate and confirm that,” said Const. Steve Holmes. Holmes said the hope is that releasing the information will prompt anyone with information to come forward. “Now we can appeal to anyone Meisner had

contact with, within the drug trade. “Even people involved in criminal activities do like to believe they are helping…they could be friends or connected in some way.” While Meisner’s drug involvement is the only new development police have reported on in months, the missing man’s wife Tammy, and their children, have continued to ask for information on a Facebook page titled Bring Geoff Meisner Home.

“These little girls would really like to know where their Daddy is,” reads one entry from someone identifying themselves as Tammy Meisner. “Father’s Day is coming up. The whereabouts of Geoffrey Gordon Meisner would be nice to know,” the entry continues. “If you can help please do, it would be an admirable thing to do. Just let someone know if you have any idea what might have happened.

“We just have no clue, this is sickening.” He was last seen the afternoon of Nov. 27 when Tammy dropped him off at Orchard Park mall. Meisner was supposed to pick up his white 2010 Ford F-350 crew cab with a tonneau cover sometime after that, but it was later found at the Starbucks on Leathhead Road and Highway 97. When he was last seen, Meisner was bald, stood six-foot-one and weighed 275 pounds. “If anyone has infor-

mation that they believe does not seem significant, please understand that, when it is pieced together with other information, it may become important to the investigation,” said Holmes, in a press release. “Please call with whatever you know.” Those with information are asked to call Kelowna Detachment at 250762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Highway 97 detours slated to open July 2 Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER

Big changes are coming to Highway 97 this summer to accommodate construction of the $41-million Westside Road Interchange. But West Kelowna Coun. Bryden Winsby says he isn’t convinced the necessary traffic pattern changes will go off without a hitch. “My only concern is that we do get tie ups now. We do get traffic backlogged back to the bridge, as wonderful as it is, and I’m concerned this could get real bad,” said Winsby, in reference to planned detour routes, which are scheduled to open July 2. Winsby said a choke point already exists on Highway 97 at Abbott Street in Kelowna and the highway could do without another at the start of the peak tourist season. “The concern, looking at this, is a choke point on this side as well.” However, in a presentation to West Kelowna council Tuesday night, project

spokeswoman Evelyn Lube said that impact on traffic would be minimal. “There may some very limited single-lane (flows), for a day or two during the end of construction, but for the most part it will be straight through traffic, just as you know it now along Highway 97.” Two-lane detour routes going both north and south are meant to allow continuous flow of traffic around the interchange project and unencumbered construction for the next year, said Lube. Detour routes would leave the highway past the Westbank First Nation offices to the north and at Nancee Way to the south, at an intersection where WFN Chief Robert Louie once had a SuperSave gas station. Traffic signals, which are currently located at Westside Road and Highway 97, would be moved to the intersection of Nancee Way and Highway 97 to accommodate traffic from Westside Road. Eventually an underpass will also be constructed at Nancee Way, with work See Detours A6

The $575 tickets given to five mud-boggers Sunday at McCulloch was really just a warning. There are far more stringent provisions in the new legislation, with a maximum fine of $100,000 and up to a year in jail.

Even aside from the adverse impacts on the environment and on the quality of water for downstream users, I still can’t figure out where the thrill is in driving a truck through a wetland of any sort. In fact, wildlife have enough problems, inadvertently caused by humans, without intentionally adding to their burden. A small group of California bighorns are doomed to die as a result of their contact with a herd of domestic sheep in Kelowna over the past couple of weeks. But, an even bigger

concern is the possibility that splinter group could carry disease from the domestic sheep back to the main herd, animals that were transplanted into the park after the 2003 wildfire altered the habitat and provided better browse and lambing grounds for the bighorns. That project was a collaboration of local fish and game clubs, the environment ministry and Okanagan Nation Alliance. The CO Service did succeed in tracking down two of the wandering bighorns in Kelowna May 22 and shot the ewe, but

a small yearling ram got away in the Bellevue Creek area. If they aren’t successful in putting down the rest of those who mixed with domestic sheep here, the rest of the park herd could die just as 300 bighorns did a few years ago after contact with domestic sheep in the South Okanagan. If you see any of them in Kelowna, call the RAPP line at: 1-8779522-7277(RAPP) immediately. We humans have meddled again, but this we might be able to put right.

Westside traffic flow to be altered Detours from A3 on that project to commence in the fall of 2011, following completion of the Westside Road overpass. Lube also told council that more traffic changes on Highway 97 are envisioned beyond the Westside Road and Nancee Way projects. “Once this interchange is finished the next project will be to do a similar structure at Boucherie Road. So, I think we are going to deal with construction on Highway 97 for sometime until this is all finished,� explained Lube. “The idea in the end of it is to eliminate the stop and go traffic and the traffic lights that are slowing traffic down.� It should be noted, however, the B.C. Ministry of Transportation has not given any timelines for construction of an interchange at Boucherie Road and Highway 97, nor has a budget been determined. As for the Westside Road interchange, it is funded jointly through a federal/provincial infrastructure grant announced 13 months ago. The Westbank First Nation is managing the project for the B.C. Ministry of Transportation. Upgrades include improved access to the Westbank First Nation administration building, the addition of sidewalks and cycling lanes along portions of Nancee Way and Westside Road and a transit exchange in front of the WFN offices. A website for the entire project, www.westsideinterchange.ca, should be available within the next few weeks to keep the public up to date, said Lube.

Sexual assaulter regrets his actions Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

A seemingly contrite Tyler Stephens took responsibility for actions he says left his victims, and Kelowna women in general, feeling vulnerable to attack. “Every woman has the right to feel safe,” said the 22-year old, who was dubbed the Rutland Rapist by media outlets in 2007 when his neighbourhoodspecific assaults were re-

ported to police at a regular clip. “I’m truly sorry for pain I caused. There are women I’ve hurt immeasurably, and for that I’m sorry. I can’t ask to be forgiven for what I’ve done, but I can take responsibility and pledge to be a better person.” During Wednesday’s court proceedings, Stephens told judge Mark Takahashi, that he was “alone, depressed, suicidal and shut the world out”

during his teenage years, but with the help of professionals he’s encountered since a 2008 arrest, he’s learned a better way forward. “I truly believe I can change my life…and I want to go to a federal institution so I can start my treatments,” he said. “I know I should and will be punished…I take full and complete responsibility for my actions, not just in court but in my entire life.”

Stephens made those statements following sentencing recommendations by Crown Counsel Dave Ruse and defence lawyer Nicole Schaebus. Ruse is pursuing a dangerous offender title— saying there are too many x-factors when it comes to Stephens’ future actions and he needs longterm supervision—along with an eight year prison sentence. Schabus, however, contended the nine counts of sexual assault he pleaded guilty to, should come with a sentence of three more years in prison and five years of supervision. Schaebus also said Stephens shouldn’t be labelled a dangerous offender, because the expert testimony offered in court indicates that there’s reasonable possibility that his negative behaviours can be controlled into the future. “He did not re-offend after first contact (with law enforcement),” said Schabus, referring to an attack

Wise and wild woman foundation fundraiser to help kids and moms Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

What happens when a load of local wild and wise women come together? r They eat, drink and ensure steps are made to improve the world they live in, of course. For the sixth year running, the Wild WomanWise Woman Foundation will hold its annual charity drive June 17, said organizer Teresa Johnston. “Our mandate is to help women and children,� said Johnston. “It started six years ago with Mohini Singh.

She adopted a little girl from India, and she saw these little girls who needed surgery to get adopted.

“We raised $26,000 and saw all the results of children who were helped—so we decided to

The nature of Stephens attacks were largely obscured until March of this year when a dangerous offender hearing played out in the courts. There it was learned that Stephens, who is 6-foot-1 and then 175 pounds, would troll Rutland streets looking for new women to attack. His nine victims, in contrast, were all smaller than him and walking alone at night. He would attack them from behind, sometimes with his face obscured by a bag that had eye-holes cut into it. While Stephens had the size advantage, his victims also proved to share another characteristic— they were fighters. Stephens’ had sex with only one woman who submitted after a short struggle, but those who struggled sent Stephens running. Judge Takahashi said he will rule on sentencing for Stephens within the next two weeks.

▼ CONDO LIVING

Strata members keenly interested in governance issues C ‘‘ omplaints against uncooperative councillors, fears about floods and earthquakes, dealing with developers and lawsuits… there’s never a shortage of issues to discuss when condo owners get together to ask questions and share experiences.

STRATA SCENE

Gunnar Forsstrom The agenda was full

and wide-ranging at the recent seminar for selfgoverning stratas, hosted by Coldwell Banker Horizon Realty. Although no one topic dominated the session, it was clear the members of strata corporations were enthusiastic to gain information concerning gov-

ernance, legal and insurance issues affecting condominium living. While a single hotbutton issue didn’t dominate, a theme emerged whereby members didn’t think they were being heard, or treated fairly, by their strata councils. When it was point-

ed out that stratas are selfgoverning corporations based on democracy, and there are no ‘condo cops’ to enforce the Strata Property Act, the response was one of incredulity. Response from readers to this column has followed a similar vein. Whether valid or not,

owners cite a lack of communication and dictatorial councilors as the main source of their disgruntlement. Obviously, once a breakdown occurs it is difficult to establish positive outcomes and restore relationships. Strata members are similar to shareholders of any corporation. They have the power to elect the executive, and, if there is dissatisfaction or lack confidence in their councils, they can vote them out. Under the new amendments to the SPA, 20 per cent of the owners/tenants can call a special general meeting to remove councilors. A majority vote of the quorum is all that is needed to remove a councilor. A new election must be held at the same meeting to replace recalled councilors. A provision in the new amendments will also make it easier and less expensive to sue individuals and/or corporations. Although not yet declared, disputes will be allowed to be heard in small claims court, rather than the B.C. Supreme Court as is the case at present. Initiating a Supreme Court action is onerous, which is one of the reasons there is relatively little case law for reference. The Act also has a provision for arbitration and mediation is highly

Statutory release for local man convicted of manslaughter Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

An Okanagan man convicted of manslaughter last year has been granted statutory release from prison. Cyle Ivan, now 22, was sentenced to two years in jail in February 2009 for his role in the June 2006 death of Danielle Larson. The 29-year-old woman had been given $100 to buy cocaine by Ivan but used $40 to buy drugs for herself, prompting Ivan and his co-accused, Darryl Cook, to take her to a remote area in Glenrosa to “scare” her. Ivan assaulted Larson and Cook cut her throat during the confrontation. Larson’s body, left among some rubbish, wasn’t discovered until several days later. In a newly released decision from the National Parole Board, they indicate Ivan was granted statutory release earlier this month.

New sites eyed for schools Plan from A1 ed to cope with growth in the student population. Rutland Middle School is targeted for replacement. New elementary and middle schools are considered for the Upper Mission neighbourhood. An elementary school in Winfield and a secondary school in Glenmore round out the total of new sites forecast by the board. Ministry of Education standards require 19.1 hectares of land for the sites. The board expects to purchase the land over the next few years. The current cost of such properties would come to $40,470,000. SD 23 secretary-treasurer Larry Paul said the new school sites are paid for by a charge per new dwelling unit that is paid by residential developers. The funds are collected by municipal government and transferred to the school board. On the adoption of the proposal by the school board, the corresponding bylaws are to be adopted by the municipalities involved within two months. msimmons@kelownacapnews.com

Do You Want Beautiful Hair

My name is Marianne Schneider. I am 54 years old and I have had hair problems as long as I can remember. I have experimented with an endless array of shampoos, sprays, hair treatments and conditioners and I have spent an enormous amount of money in hair salons. But all those efforts were to no avail... the results didn’t last more than a few hours, at best. When I was 49 it got even worse - one day I started shedding large tufts of hair. I consulted doctors and had my hormone status analyzed. I tried Schuessler salts and body detox therapy, none of which had any lasting effect. Finally, I had my hair cut short and only ventured into public wearing a head scarf because, by now I had so little hair left that my scalp was clearly visible. My friends pretended not to notice and told me it wasn’t that bad. Sometimes though, I caught them sneaking glances at my head. And those stares at the supermarket or at the cinema –sometimes it was simply unbearable. About three years ago, I met a woman who took me aside and asked, “Do you have a problem with your hair? Have you ever heard of silica?”

Then she told me her own tale of woe, she said, “I had the same problem as you. Three years ago I suffered a lot of stress in my job and personal life and I started losing all of my hair. My daughter suggested that I try Original Silicea Balsam.” This woman told me it took about three months, but you know, her hair looked remarkable! So I tried Original Silicea Balsam and before long my hair actually started to grow back! In time it became much thicker and it felt much stronger. After about six months my hair had a wonderful shine and it looked very healthy. Now I have the beautiful hair I have been dreaming of all of my life. Although I am still the object of sneaky glances, and again it’s because of my hair - but now I revel in those glances admiring my beautiful, healthy hair.

erative diseases. We all know someone who has Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease always seems to be at the forefront of their concerns. In fact, the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has increased steadily over the last 50 years with no perceivable decline in the near future. “What can I do?” they ask me. “How can I avoid Alzheimer’s disease, because once I have it, isn’t it too late?” To answer their question, I reply there is plenty you can do today to avoid this disease. The answer is indeed in prevention. I was very excited to read a study published in the medical journal called Archives in Neurology in January 2004. Dr. Peter Zand et al. published an article called Reduced Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease in Users of Antioxidant Vitamin Supplements. In my opinion, it is a tuning point study that proves the favourable relationship between reducing the risk of AD via the use of Vitamin E and C. The objective of the study was to examine the relationship between antioxidant supplement use and risk of AD. The design was a cross-sectional and prospective study of dementia. Elderly (65 years or older) county residents were assessed in 1995 to 1997 for prevalent dementia and AD, and again in 1998 to 2000 for incident illness. The study group included over 4,700 individuals. The study results found that the use of vitamin E and C supplements in combination was associated with reduced AD prevalence. They noted

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel a 78 per cent overall reduction. The study report’s authors also noted “because judicious doses of antioxidant vitamin supplements are relatively nontoxic and may have wide-ranging health benefits, antioxidants may offer an attractive prevention strategy.” This is excellent research. As well, the study results stated: “In neurons, which are especially vulnerable to free radical– mediated damage, these processes may be important in aging of the brain and the pathogenesis of AD…Antioxidants may mitigate age-related cognitive decline.” In addition, the study uncovered no notable reduction in risk of incident AD with Vitamin E or vitamin C alone. This is important. In this study, typical daily vitamin doses were up to 1,000 units of measurement of Vitamin E and 500 to 1000 milligrams of vitamin C. The benefits noted in this study from taking vitamin E and vitamin C supplements was noted in those who had been taking the combination for two or more years.

Regional waste reduction facilitator Rae Stewart said all household plastics #1 through 7 are accepted in the curbside recycling program, and these plastics from your plants are no different. Just make sure your garden pots or trays are rinsed clean of all dirt before you recycle them. Unfortunately, the little plastic tags that identify the plants can’t be recycled. They’re too small for workers at Metro Waste Paper Recovery to pick up off a moving conveyor while wearing safety gloves, so the tags must be put into regular garbage instead.

Cooler May, added rain help douse drought concerns Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Above average rain and cooler than normal weather during May has had a significant impact on the likelihood of drought this summer. “It’s significantly more positive,” said Allan Chapman, director of the River Forecast Centre for the environment ministry. If this weather continues into June, it would

make a big difference, he said. Cooler weather has meant much of the high elevation snowpack has yet to melt and has meant lower demands on water stored for irrigation, he noted. For instance, the Mission Creek snow course, high in the creek’s watershed, now measures 250 per cent of normal because it’s been so cold up there the snow hasn’t melted, where it normally

would have been well into snowmelt. Normal snow water equivalent at this point in the year would be 200 millimetres, but today it’s actually 450 mm. Usually the snow measured at that site peaks at 500 mm, but this year it peaked at 510 mm, so slightly more than the normal amount of snow accumulated there in total this year. Mission Creek is the single largest contribu-

Fire department’s administrative affairs reviewed Exit from A1 ten into an employment contract as an automatic payout should employment end, she said. Covington confirmed this is not the case with the City of Kelowna as the municipality does not enter into contracts with severance terms laid out. The other options typically include either a decision where there’s a mutual benefit to the parties, such as an agreement that an organization needs someone new timed with a decision from the individual to move on or retire. Or, in cases where an organization has decided to fire someone without cause, the severance can be used to stave off a wrongful dismal lawsuit. The former chief himself has yet to comment on exactly what brought on this parting of ways beyond a couple of sentences in the city’s statements. He did not return messages from the Capital News. Meanwhile, Covington confirmed an independent contractor has been hired to assess the state of the department’s administrative affairs. The contractor, she said, was hired after Blanleil began talking with the city about his departure. The work is said to include a routine look at how the department’s business operation is being handled with an eye to how it should be handled moving forward. Rumours have also surfaced stating Blanleil’s management has caused some firefighters to jump ship, including assistant chiefs. Covington put a portion of the rumour mill to rest stating there is only one assistant chief position vacant at the moment. Assistant fire chief Bryan Collier left the department this spring to take a position on the Westside, although to the best of Covington’s knowledge it was due to “personal reasons.” Assistant chief Lou Wilde has been with the department since 1987 and in his current position since June 2003, she said. Jason Brolund became an assistant chief in October 2008 after a four year stint with the department while Tom Doherty joined the department in 2006, accepting a position as assistant fire chief in May 2009. Covington says the full severance details will not be released unless a Freedom of Information Request is filed, forcing the city into a legal review of the file. Steve Kinsey has been appointed acting chief effective June 10. Kinsey retired from the Kelowna Fire Department in 2004 after 30 years of service, the last 14 as assistant chief. The search for a new chief will be national and is expected to take four to six months. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

tor of inflow to Okanagan Lake, with its large, highelevation watershed. Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist said there has already been more rainfall than the normal amount for the entire month of May. Normal rainfall for May in Kelowna is 39 mm, while there had already been 41.9 mm by May 26 and the longerterm outlook is for con-

tinued wetter weather than normal. June is normally the wettest month of the year here, noted Lundquist, with an average of 40.7 mm and there’s usually more rain falling on the upper elevations around the valley than in the valley bottom. Most storms form over the mountains and the rain falls there. Lundquist said temperatures for the month of May were also low-

er than normal. Instead of the average high of 20 C, it was 18.3 so far; and instead of the average low of 5 C, it was 2.8 C, for an average of 10.5 C this May. However, the five warmest days of the months are not yet included in those figures, he added. May’s weather has also helped the South East Kelowna Irrigation District which faced a second

year of low levels in its reservoir, and had instituted stage two watering restrictions. Manager Toby Pike said McCulloch Reservoir is up from 39 per cent a months or so ago, to being 70 per cent full now, above the 67 per cent of full it reached last year. Cooler, wetter weather has helped reduce both evaporation and demand as well as bring more runoff into the reservoir.

Neighbours thwart burglar

NEWS It was quick thinking by neighbours that helped police arrest a male attempting a break and enter of a home in the700 block of Rowcliffe Avenue in Kelowna. . Residents observed a

male leaving their neighbour’s yard, at around 10 a.m. They saw a big screen TV and a bag full of the owners effects, on the lawn. The neighbours knew

the owners were at work and so they called police to report. When police arrived, a witness advised that the male had fled on a bicycle, and gave a description, as well as his direc-

tion of travel. It didn’t take police long to spot a male matching the suspect’s description. The 46 year old was arrested on the spot. A police dog followed scent track from the res-

idence to where the suspect had been arrested, confirming that the arrested individual had indeed been at the residence. The Kelowna resident was released on a promise to appear in court at the

end of July and is facing a recommended charge of possession of stolen property. Kelowna RCMP say the incident shows how it can certainly pay off to get along with your neighbours.

▼ CRIME

Stabbed woman treated Kelowna RCMP were called to a residence in the 2900 block of Old Vernon Road on Wednesday to investigate a reported stabbing that had occurred three days earlier. The stabbing victim was a 47-year-old female, who suffered an apparent stab wound on her right forearm. She was sent to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment of the wound. The incident had taken place on May 22 at the residence of the accused, a 53-year-old male who lived nearby. The suspect was in court Wednesday to face charges of assault with a weapon. He is known to police for extensive violence and Criminal Code violations in his past.

This is probably a valid argument as we do have students from smaller communities and rural areas. Yet many do have access to high speed Internet at their local college campus, their school and maybe their community library. Most students that I know, both high school and college, would seek out a fast computer just to log in to Facebook. Changes in Internet use among young adults is changing the way we deal with students, faster than new menu items are added to fast food restaurants. I believe if we don’t take into account these new technologies we could lose the opportunity to connect with students and get them to enrol in college or university. I’m not saying colleges need to give up on faceto-face service delivery when helping students determine their career and educational goals; we just need to be innovative and ensure we utilize the best communication practices to accommodate the needs of the next generation. Young, middle and older adults are all online—so we need to be there too. Jane Muskens is the interim registrar at Okanagan College. jmuskens@okanagan.bc.ca

ma—some people tell me this isn’t going to work for all students. Older students want face-to-face service. They want printed material when looking for information about the college. I say, yes maybe some do, but today’s generation of older students (categorized at around 26 years of age) only graduated from high school seven years ago. Surely many of them are regular computer users. Plus, Stats Canada’s latest report on Canadian Internet use tells me that 70 per cent of Canadians search for information online first—more than any other source. I am also told that some students won’t want to pay their tuition fees online. Yet personal Internet use is highest among 16- to 24-year-olds (98 per cent)—the age group most likely to access Okanagan College’s website and online services. On top of this, more Canadians today are willing to make online credit card purchases, according to Stats Canada data—a significant change from 10 years ago. Along with all of this I’m told some of our students use dial-up Internet connections, which stop many from using online services—they are just too slow.

â&#x2013;ź MICHAEL IGNATIEFF

Do I see Liberal leader Iggy Pops in the refrigerator? I NUTSHELL

Shelley Nicholl advocated the government take a stronger role, legally and policy-wise, to stymie the junk food wave. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tricky area to wade into. How far should the government go to control our nasty eating habits? My thought is that, like anything, in 20 years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll wonder how we ever allowed all that stuff on the store shelves in the first place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gee, Granny, did you really eat artificially flavoured, high-calorie, lownutrition foods of questionable origin?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were called Cheezies.â&#x20AC;? In the meantime, it will be a struggle. No one wants the guys on the rubber chicken circuit to tell them what to eat. Changing habits takes a while. Sometimes, however, they need a kick-start and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already happening. In Los Angeles, in an

WANTED 2 HOMES IN YOUR AREA SPECIAL SAVINGS! FACTORY DIRECT!

effort to control the growing rate of obesity, fastfood outlets were pretty much told to take it elsewhere a couple years ago. It was a way to shift behaviour; if the food wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quick, cheap and available, it might not be as tempting. B.C. has been a leader in establishing higher food standards by restricting junk food availability in public areas, including schools. Other provinces are following suit. Individual cities have set up their own policies, as well. But there is the ques-

tion of how intrusive it should be. Should there be an all-out ban on junk food in all stores? Everywhere? Should we wipe out the industry completely? The answer is it would do us all a heck of a lot of good health-wise and we would get used to it. After all, we started off hunting and gathering, so we know we can survive and carry on as a life form. But should we really have to part with our treats, all the time? Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it our choice to eat what we want? Food is for pleasure, too.

The problem is that we choose the junk too often. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big issue. If we could all control our habit to a manageable caloric intake, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fighting diabetes and heart disease later in life. Childhood obesity, strictly due to too many fats and sweets, shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even exist. High blood pressure and high cholesterol rates are factors, as well. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why when physicians lobby for more controls on junk food, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they see the wear and tear it does to a body, not to mention the strain

on the health care system. Too many people are in the hospital with preventable diseases and health issues. I have no problem helping out people with my tax dollars who need medical care for something they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause, but I do get a little upset when so much of our health damage is self-inflicted. If somehow steep taxes on junk food went straight into health care, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for it, especially if those dollars are used to promote prevention. I know they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be,

but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good wish. Admittedly, there are other things much more directly damaging to our health than junk food. As well, we should be able to control our consumption ourselves. But, if Iggy Pops his head up and suggests the government get a little more aggressive on keeping us healthier, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slam the fridge door on him.

t might be a chilling thought to sneak downstairs for a midnight snack, open the refrigerator and see the smiling face of Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff. Now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not thinking anything morbid about decapitated political heads on ice. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you concluded, shame on you. No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking about having government intimately involved in what we eat via a national food policy. The Liberals have been touting it for some time with more of a focus on buying locally, helping farmers, and keeping food safe rather than scouring through our cupboards for taco chips and chocolatecovered marshmallows. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that bit about somehow controlling what we consume that raises ire. There have been threats about putting hefty taxes on junk food, on the road to making the â&#x20AC;&#x153;badâ&#x20AC;? food more expensive and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;goodâ&#x20AC;? food more affordable. The Canadian Medical Association Journal has had reports on such discussions going back many years. Recently, an article

This project is poised to promote education, community and professionalism in the residential construction industry in our region. Students will work side by side with general contractor, Distinctive Developments, all sub trades and under supervision of instructors at Okanagan College for 16 weeks. “This is an invaluable learning opportunity,” said Terry Heinrich, president of Distinctive Developments, “allowing students enrolled in trades programs to receive hands-on training from excavation to project completion.” The CHBA has registered the 2010 Home for Learning as a Built Green Gold standard home with an EnerGuide Rating of 80, meaning the home will have a high standard for being environmentally friendly and energy efficient. “It is important to our members and partners that we set an example for future generations,” said Rob Voros, second vicepresident of the CHBA Central Okanagan chapter, “and to ensure we are all engaging in environmentally friendly practices when building homes in the Central Okanagan.” Once completed, the home will be sold to charity for fundraising with partial proceeds going to Okanagan College students in the form of bursaries, scholarships and new equipment benefitting current and future students. Students not only receive valuable handson training but also technical training credit for Residential Construction Framing Technician and for level one carpentry at the college. The Canadian Home Builders Central Okanagan is actively involved in the communities where members and customers live and work.

Challenge seek 1st win Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

At 0-3, Clint Schneider wouldn’t surprised if the rest of the Pacific Coast Soccer League has already written his team off. That’s just fine with the head coach of the Okanagan Challenge who remains resolute that the defending champs’ best soccer is yet to come. The Challenge will be in Victoria Saturday night to play the Highlanders, then will move on to Burnaby Sunday to battle Athletic Club B.C. “The results the guys have had so far is certainly no reflection of who they are as a team,” said Schneider, in his second season as head coach. “I think a lot of teams might be writing us off which is a good thing. We’re cer-

tainly going to be a lot better team than the last time we were in Victoria.” That last trip to Victoria in early May saw the Challenge come up empty with losses to both United (2-1) and the Highlanders (3-1). Injuries have compounded the club’s early season struggles. Roman Doutkevitch, Dillon Ferridge and Brandon Fer-

ridge are all sidelined with leg injuries and will miss this weekend’s action. Still, with a few weeks of the season now under their belts, Schneider expects his team is on the verge of hitting its stride. “We’ve been injuryridden and hopefully in the next couple of weeks we’ll get everybody healthy and back on the field,” said Schneider. “When you bring new guys in, it takes time for everyone to get comfortable with one another. When guys play for each other and battle for each other, then that’s when things turn around. I fully expect to see that happen.” The next home action for the Challenge is Saturday, June 5 at the Apple Bowl against the Khalsa Sporting Club. Kick off is 7:30 p.m.

Sun land top O-liner United squads medal in Kamloops Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

No one at the 2010 edition of Okanagan Sun spring camp made a bigger impression on head coach Peter McCall than offensive linemen Drew Digout. The B.C. Football Conference club is happy to report the 6-foot-3, 280-pound Saskatoon product has committed to the brown and orange for the upcoming season. Digout —pronounced Digoo—helped his Aden Bowman Collegiate Bears to three straight city high school championships and a provincial title last fall. The 17-year-old bluechipper was a northern

Saskatchewan all-star and was named the top offensive lineman for his side at the Saskatchewan Senior Bowl held last weekend in Saskatoon. Coach McCall is excited about the potential of the Sun’s newest recruit. “I see Drew as being an impact player for us right from the get-go,” said McCall. “You could spot him at spring camp right away. He was definitely not afraid to mix it up, he held his own all afternoon.” “Off the field, he is a no-nonsense kid, very mature young man with a good up-bringing...you can tell,” McCall added. “He’s a diamond recruit for us. That’s what you are

looking for on the offensive line, a big strong, athletic guy. For Digout’s part, the hulking O-lineman has no qualms about leaving the junior football hotbed of Saskatoon for a summer of football in the Okanagan “I like B.C. I had a good time in Kelowna,” Digout said. “They (the Sun) have a good reputation. I like to win, so I’m going to go out there and try my hardest to help them win a championship.” The Sun opens the BCFC season July 24 in Kamloops vs the Broncos. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Kelowna United downed Powell River 3-1 to win the U15A girls title at the 2010 Slurpee Cup soccer tourney in Kamloops. United overcame a 1-0 deficit on goals by Savannah Gellner, Katarina Bergg and Reah Virk. The game MVP was keeper Hanna Caldwell. In the other games, Kelowna beat Vernon 2-1, played to a 0-0 draw with Kamloops and downed Port Coquitlam 1-0 on a goal by Jo-Jo Johansen. “In over 18 years of coaching youth soccer I have never seen a tournament so tight,” said United coach Steve Bergg. “Every game was a war and any team could

have won the whole thing with a few bounces. Our team got those bounces because when it mattered most they outworked the opposition.”

U16 GIRLS

Kelowna United shared the U16 A girls gold medal with the Kamloops Blaze. The two teams met in the final of the Slurpee Cup and played to a 1-1 draw. Kelowna opened the scoring in the first half off of a corner kick by Clare Murphy, which was eventually bulldozed in on a mad scramble by defender Justine Drosdovech, who was up in the play due to the corner kick. However,

the lead was short lived as Kamloops scored on their own corner kick only minutes later. United also defeated Mission 3-0, the Calgary Willowbridge Colts 1-0, and the Calgary Blizzard 3-1. Game MVPs were Justine Drosdovech, Alana Hazell, Dylan Erhardt and Halle Stewart.

U14 BOYS

The Kelowna United U14 A boys settled for silver in Kamloops after a 1-0 loss to Penticton in the final. United beat Kamloops 2-0, Penticton 4-0 and Whalley 6-0. Joe Steward recorded all three shutouts, while defender

Joe Overton twice earned MVP honours.

U13 GIRLS

Kennedy Snape’s first goal of the tournament proved to be the winner as the Kelowna United U13 A girls claimed the top prize at the Slurpee Cup. Serena Boulter set up the marker by Snape as United edged the host Kamloops Blaze 2-1 in Sunday’s finale. Jayden Penkala scored the other Kelowna goal in the first half before Kamloops tied it up. In the tournament opener, Penkala scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Kamloops. KeepSee United A25

n Saturday night Duncan Keith will lead his Chicago Blackhawks into the Stanley Cup final against the Philadelphia Flyers. It will mark the latest chapter in what can only be deemed an extraordinary National Hockey League season for former members of the Kelowna Rockets franchise. Not only will Keith have a chance to hoist hockey’s holy grail sometime next month, but the 26-year-old blueliner with cheetah-like speed is also finalist for the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding defenceman. Factor in a gold medal win with Canada at the

Warren Henderson Olympic Games in Vancouver in February and Keith has pretty much been living every Canadian kid’s dream. Then there’s Shea Weber—Nashville Predators’ defenceman, Olympic gold medalist and rising star in the NHL. The Sicamous product had his best season yet and has safely established himself as one of the top 10 blue

liners in the world today. Speaking of defencemen, there’s Josh Gorges whose qualities as a born leader were never more evident than during the Montreal Canadiens’ recent playoff run. The often-overlooked Kelowna native more than held his own against opposing stars Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby during the first two rounds of the playoffs. Gorges is a gutsy, winat-all-costs guy every team would now love to have in their lineup. The Habs also got plenty of mileage out of Travis Moen this season, a tireless worker and gritty performer who roomed

JAMIE BENN scored 22 goals with Dallas this year. with Gorges when the two were teammates with the Rockets. What else is there to say about Tyler Myers’ stunning debut in pro hockey ? The 6-foot-8 rearguard with the wingspan of an albatross is

a finalist for the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie. At 19, Myers led the Buffalo Sabres in ice time and paced all rookie defencemen in scoring with 48 points. And although the

final result was far from ideal—seventh place— Myers played with Team Canada at the World Championship in Germany along with another ex-Rocket and emerging NHL defenceman, Kyle Cumiskey. And what about Jamie Benn, the former Rockets’ sharpshooter who proved to be a quick study in his first year of pro hockey. The 20-year-old power forward for the Dallas Stars finished third among all NHL rookies in goals this season with 22. Dallas didn’t get to the postseason, but the Victoria native wasn’t finished there. Benn

has gone on to tear up the American Hockey League, leading the Texas Stars into the championship final while also leading the playoff scoring parade with 24 points. And still there are others—Luke Schenn, Alex Edler, Scott Hannan, Blake Comeau, Troy Bodie and Vernon Fiddler among them—who have all helped the Kelowna Rockets’ burgeoning presence in the hockey world. There was a time not too many years ago when ex-Rockets in the NHL were a rarity. Now they’re impossible to miss. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Veteran Race Officer, Ron Rubadeau, conducted races for the more experienced Laser, Hobie, and Skiff sailors, while Steve Brunsden, also of COSA, ran races for the younger Optimist and Byte sailors. Local sailors, used to being competitive in the traditionally light and shifty Okanagan conditions, were challenged on their own turf as Vancouver and Victoria athletes dominated most of the event. Graeme Clendenan of West Vancouver led the Laser class, followed by Alex Shepard of Vancouver and Jonathan Cameron of Kelowna. Meanwhile, in the Laser Radial class, top COSA sailors, Brishen Slattery-Holmes and Elizabeth Hardy settled for fourth and fifth place finishes respectively as Victoria athletes Max Gallant and Jeff Connelly took the top two positions. Chris Wilson of West Van-

couver took the third place position. Adam Sorensen of COSA, sailing in his first ever regatta, was able to secure a seventh place finish which is a strong start towards his sailing future. COSA youth sailor, Olivia Kirby, struggled to a third place finish in the Byte fleet, which was won by Ben MacVicar and Jacksin Claridge of Vancouver, while in the XMulti fleet, Gillian Thomson and Jackie Black of COSA sailed their Hobie 18 to a second place finish after Vancouver 29er sailors Sam Gusin and Ian Woodburg. Harry and Emma Coleman of Vancouver finished third in that fleet on their RS800 skiff. First place overall, and first in their class was Vancouver 420 sailors Claire Brady and Heather Lee, who barely beat out their teammates Kia Meiklejohn and Alana Tacy also on a 420. COSA youth

sailors Thish Rajapakshe and Conner Durham , and Max Lavretta with Connor Brunton finished well back in eighth and ninth place on their 420’s, which was an excellent finish for these new sailors. Twenty Optimist sailors all under the age of 12 found the strong winds challenging, but fun, as they raced a shortened course just off of COSA’s main dock. This fleet was dominated by Vancouver athletes, which included top Optimist sailor Edward Coleman, who took that fleets top price. Hayley Linton and Jack Reider finished in second and third places respectively. Unlike most other sports, all competitors race equally against each other regardless of gender or age. It was no surprise to local organizers that of the 18 medals awarded at the event, 10 of those went to female competitors.

The defending Okanagan Major Baseball League champion Kelowna Jays—fresh off two PIL wins over the Coquitlam Angels—will play their first ever games at Boucherie Park in West Kelowna this weekend. The Jays will battle the Vernon Diamondbacks Saturday in a doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. On Sunday, Kelowna and the Penticton Pirates will play a twin bill starting at 1. The Jays will show-

case most of their pitching staff in order to get them ready for their next PIL series next weekend in Seattle and Everett. Fans can expect to see hard-throwing lefty Ashton Florko and hard-throwing righty Ryan Paterson—both pro prospects who throw upwards of 90 mph— along with a trio of outstanding young Okanagan College pitchers in Corey Wood, Blake Young and Ron Alksne. Hard hitting shortstop Jared Johnson will lead

the Jays hit parade along with catcher Cody Valgardson, catcher/infielder Jake Chapman, and three speedy outfielders in Brett Sanguin, Reed Quall and Scott Belinski.

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ CHILDREN’S BOOK

Father, daughter collaboration Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Almost every child can remember a story a parent told them when they were growing up. Cara Sharp, however, is among a handful who can boast being able to turn one of those stories into a series of children’s books that countless others can enjoy for years to come. “My dad and I had been talking about doing it for awhile,” said Sharp, a UBC Okanagan education student who recently completed illustrations for her dad, Chic’s, book My Twelve Brothers and

Me. It’s the first installment of a 13-book series about 12 imaginary brothers who possess amazing skills that lead them to disappear in weird ways. “It’s really great, it’s been really fun. Especially because I did it with my dad, so when we go around together to promote the books, we get to do it together.” Cara was raised in Revelstoke. Her dad Chic is still there and that’s where both the stories and the idea to turn them into a book took root. “I have written all my life and I used to tell these stories to my three daughters when they

costs, we all could make money.” The real estate company thought it was good enough to sign on for the second print run, and Chic said copies are selling both locally and in the U.S., thanks to some savvy Internet marketing on his part. Above all else, however, it’s the story that children are enjoying. Cara said that when she read it to the students at Quigley Elementary, where she was doing her practicum, they ate the story up—particularly enjoying the fact that they were getting ‘face time’ with a published author.

Chic said the stories resonate because they’re fun. “They’re just fun stories, they’re enjoyable and some of them have some messages about things like going away, coming back again and how you deal with that,” he said. “More than anything, though, this has been way more fun than I thought it would be.” To get some face time with Chic and Clara go to Mosaic Books on Bernard this Saturday, May 29, from noon until 4 p.m. and they’ll be in Kelowna again June 5 at the Chapters in Orchard Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sex and the City 2, Prince of Persia linked by location, producer

S

ex and the City 2 is here and fans are sure to make it the number one movie of the weekend. If you are not already a fan of the TV show or the first movies, there is probably not much point trying to convince you to go see it, but maybe I can convince you to go see the other big movie opening this weekend, which shares a connection. The connection between Sex and the City 2 and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is where they were shot.

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis Even though SATC 2 is partially set in Dubai, local authorities would not allow it to be filmed there, so that part of the movie was actually filmed in Morocco. Prince of Persia was also partially filmed in Morocco, under the

supervision of director Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). The other big name attached to Prince of Persia as producer is Jerry Bruckheimer, who not only was successfully adapting Pirates of the Caribbean to the big screen, but was producer on such blockbusters as Beverly Hills Cop, Top Gun and National Treasure, to name only a few. Prince is Persia is based loosely on the video game series about

a street urchin who is adopted by the king of the Persian Empire and named heir so his two sons would not fight over the throne. The roguish prince reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess and together race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time—a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world. Sir Ben Kingsley plays the villainous nobleman who wishes to do

so while Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans) play the prince and princess respectively. The Paramount Theatre is showing a famous ballet this Saturday morning. Cinema dance fans have a rarefied chance to see The Royal Ballet’s brilliant prima ballerina Darcey Bussell in one of her last performances as Sir Frederick Ashton’s Sylvia, at Covent Garden. She is partnered by one of Italy’s most brilliant and elegant dancers, Rober-

to Bolle. Based on a classical myth, shepherd Aminta is in love with Sylvia, a chaste huntress nymph. Trying to shoot Eros, Sylvia accidentally kills the shepherd. Eros, enraged, shoots an arrow into her heart causing her to fall in love with the dying man. The evil hunter Orion kidnaps the grieving Sylvia, who uses her seductive charms to escape. Eros brings the shepherd back to life and a dramatic confrontation with the Goddess Diana en-

sues before the lovers are united. London’s Royal Ballet founder, Ashton choreographed a stunning, lavish production to composer Leo Delibes’ legendary, dazzling score, making Sylvia one of the brightest jewels in The Royal Ballet’s crown. It shows at 10 a.m. May 29 on the big screen at the Paramount. Adults tickets are $20.95 and seniors are $17.80. Rick Davis is the manager of the Capitol Theatre in West Kelowna. capitol_wes@ landmarkcinemas.ca

Encourage your board members to mingle It’s the time of year when organizations run conferences, special events and volunteer recognition functions. Such gatherings are great opportunities to educate board volunteers. Susan Ellis’Tip of the Month for Energize, Inc. offers some specific ideas. The main goal is for the board to simply mingle, talk and listen. Accomplishing this, however, takes planning. Here are some suggestions: Don’t keep the board together as a group at any event. Instead, scatter them to seats at different tables, have each attend different concurrent workshops, and even sit randomly at a plenary session. Then encourage informal conversation, but with a purpose: Agree on one to three questions that every board member will ask participants during the course of the event, so that afterwards they can share frequent responses. Make sure board volunteers are identifiable by special name tags, color codes or ribbons. Give the average member a fighting chance to recognize and talk with them. Limit private meetings to conduct board business during events as other attendees may perceive such absences from the room as conveniently avoiding interaction with members. Depending on the personalities of board volunteers and the culture of your organization, add some fun into the proceedings. It’s the board chair who establishes board culture and therefore has the responsibility of assuring that the sort of staying-connected activities described here become a natural expectation of the role of any board mem-

ber. The chair models behavior, of course. Does

the chair stand on ceremony, keeping staff and volunteers distant and rarely mingling informally? Most leaders do not intentionally act regal. You can suggest ways

to interact at an event focused on volunteers for the purpose of celebrating the contribution of time and expertise. Maybe your executive can then keep the momentum go-

he federal government is preparing to spend up to $930 million on security for next month’s G8 and G20 summits in Ontario. That is an obscene amount of money. With all the other costs of this exorbitant exercise, it is likely a billion dollars will be spent to enable a collection of world leaders and financial mandarins to meet for just three days. In the present fiscal realities of global economies, and with

the myriad astronomically expensive challenges facing the planet today—such as climate change, environmental disasters, world hunger, and poverty and disease—was any thought given to alternate ways these international summits could possibly be held? Satellite and digital technology makes it entirely possible for world leaders to hold “virtual” meetings, via live video feed, without ever having to step on an airplane.

MAIN SWITCHBOARD

It is a fabulous irony that one of the items of the G20 agenda is government deficits and controlling spending. While that seems to be quite lost on those involved, it certainly provides ammunition to the professional rabble-rousers and recreational rioters who make security at these summits such a high-priority and complex issue. As the top representatives of the world’s industrialized countries meet to discuss international economics, health, law and

many other topics, they might also ponder these questions. How many people could a billion dollars feed? How much clean water could it produce? How much shelter would it provide? How many medical procedures would it fund? What kind of scientific research would it make possible? Will the discussions at these two summits be worth all of that?

Member of the British Columbia Press Council

B.C. won’t do ‘a California’ to quash the HST

T

he anti-HST petition drive is closing in on its goal, with all of June still to go. It’s a rout in most of the province for the motley mujahadeen that runs under the ragged banner of shrub merchant Bill Vander Zalm and tax warrior Carole James. It recently fell to me to advise a group of fresh recruits in Harrison Hot Springs that there was no urgent need to drive to Chilliwack and sign the thing. By early May the B.C. Liberal bedrock of Chilliwack-Hope already had almost twice the signatures it needs to qualify under B.C.’s initiative legislation. Most ridings in the province have

met the minimum number of signatures, but along the way there were pockets of resistance to the antiHST jihad, and they were oddly distributed. Zalm and his field commanders like to talk tough about Point Grey, the leafy redoubt of Premier Gordon Campbell. Perfect place for a “targeted recall” effort, they hint, should the government use its majority to stall or ignore the petition. But Point Grey is where the Fight HST forces had their feeblest effort,

with only 31 per cent of their target met as of May 16. Up in Peace River South, a place spiritually aligned with Alberta, they had that many signatures the Tom first day. By pouring insurFletcher gents into the coffee shops of Kerrisdale and Dunbar, the Fight HST forces should win the Vancouver areas where their start has been slowest. But strangely, NDP strongholds of Kensington, Kingsway and Mount Pleasant were also notably sluggish about rising up against the HST, along with Fi-

VICTORIA VIEWS

nance Minister Colin Hansen’s Quilchena and the swing seat of Vancouver-West End. (For the record, Fight HST took the longest time to reach its goal in Abbotsford-Mission, Abbotsford West, all seven Burnaby and Coquitlam-area seats, all three Richmond seats, North Vancouver-Lonsdale, both West Van seats, and three Surrey seats held by the NDP. These, as well as Prince George-Mackenzie, will have reached their goals by the time you read this.) Still, it’s safe to assume the first successful initiative in B.C. history is upon us. So what’s next? Hansen showed has cards a bit last week. B.C.’s never-used initiative

law says the petition must be referred to a B.C. Liberal-controlled committee, which will have the option of referring the issue to a province-wide referendum or turning the petition j into a bill to present to the legislature. “They had a referendum in California a few years back on tax measures,” Hansen said. “It’s not serving them very well today.” In fact California has been using its initiative legislation for a century, and an industry of professional petitioners has emerged. People love it. The state is currently using it to consider legalizing and taxing mariSee Fletcher A21

LETTERS

▼ ENVIRONMMENT

Mud bogging passenger had ‘no idea’ lake was a source of drinking water To the editor: I am responding in regards of the article posted about the “mud boggers.” (McCulloch Lake: Enforcement Blitz in the Bush Results in Fines, May 26 Capital News.) I was a passenger in one of the vehicles and I feel it is necessary to let everyone know that we were completely unaware that the location we were driving through was a com-

munity watershed. We are being portrayed as a bunch of reckless and irresponsible people. Most of us are parents and had we known the severity of the damage we were going to cause we would have never gone in that area. I would also like to add that we received a warning that day and never did we go back. It wasn’t until the next day we received a fine.

We were not the only ones in there and would like to state to the public that we are sorry for the damage, but again we had no idea that it was a watershed. Maybe Kelowna should pull together and create designated areas for people who like to mud bog to lessen the effect of environmental damage. Kaylin Smith, Kelowna

▼ GREENER WAYS

Why not make pet pill bottles recyclable? To the editor: My pets are not patients of the Okanagan Veterinary Hospital, but I contacted OVH as I was concerned that my pets’ medicine containers are not recyclable and I was checking on the procedure at OVH and my pets’ veterinarian. Felix and Sally’s veterinarian thought recyclable pet medicine containers was a good idea, but showed no initiative towards making recyclable containers the standard

for B.C. veterinarians, let alone all Canadian veterinarians. Ms. Snikkers at OVH was keen and started her own investigation into a source for recyclable containers, with consent from Dr. Veenus. Several days later, Elizabeth contacted me to say that she was researching the green containers as the current supplier did not stock such containers. A week later I had another telephone call from Elizabeth with an enthusi-

astic response that she had found a supplier, and OVH would be switching to recyclable pet medicine containers in the near future. In the meantime, I had telephoned the B.C. Veterinary Association and was directed to a Dr. Brocklebank and left a voicemail. Ten days later I made my second call, and spoke with the doctor. He said he had used recyclable containers in his practice but was now an administrator. The doc-

tor did not indicate that he or the association promoted green containers. He did agree to bring it forward for discussion and maybe a notice could be placed in one of the association’s contact sheets. The association has two contact sheets and a web site. I requested that a plea to turn B.C. veterinarians greener should be made as broad as possible. Thank you Elizabeth and Okanagan Veterinarian Hospital for believing

in a green B.C. and your enthusiasm for making the Okanagan a bit greener. It is time, readers, to do your part. Encourage your veterinarian to switch to green medicine containers. You do not have to wait for your next appointment. Drop in and put in a word for green containers. Thank you for helping your pets go green. Terry Taylor, Kelowna

▼ USING THE SYSTEM

Judicial system can be manipulated, if you know how To the editor: My experience with the RCMP: In the summer of 2009, I went to a family picnic at Bertram Park in the Mission for a beautiful sunny Okanagan day of barbecue and swimming—the reason we moved to the Okanagan in the first place. Upon returning to our vehicle after a day at the beach we were greeted with a smashed window on our vehicle and our wallets stolen out of the

glove compartment. We phoned the local authorities after finding out that there was $5,000 stolen on our credit cards. The RCMP informed me that no officer would be showing up to the crime scene, because they were too busy for these trivial thefts. Now, fast forward to May 15, 2010. I was in a boutique, removing the last of my personal belongings, as I had sold my share of the business to my partner. In do-

ing so four small plates, at a value of approximately $150, were accidentally broken. I acknowledged the accident to my partner and her husband (who is a retired RCMP sergeant). I left the store, knowing that, as a store owner, this would be written off as a minor concern, as was procedure in the past. The same afternoon the police phoned me. They informed me that I am going to be charged with mischief and that afternoon I was arrested in

my driveway, for all of my neighbours to see. This for approximately $150 worth of damage, when they wouldn’t show up to a crime scene of over $5,000. It has to make me wonder why a retired RCMP officer’s concerns of a $150 incident, overrides a $5,000 crime. After dropping off my one daughter at school Monday morning, I headed to the courthouse on Ellis to meet the bail officer. Here I have a mug

shot taken—just the same as a drug dealer or a murderer. Even the bail officer is perplexed as to why such an insignificant matter is being brought before the court. So, does the average Okanagan citizen have less rights to use the judicial system to their best interests, than a retired RCMP officer who knows how to use the system? Is this another waste of the taxpayer’s money? Sarah Ramey, Kelowna

Referenda have handicapped CA Express yourself Fletcher from A20

juana. Oh yes, and California is broke. Governor Arnold Schwarzennegger is among those who say the state is handcuffed by spending and tax rules imposed by voter referenda. One of its more notorious efforts was Proposition 13, which ended an upward spiral of property taxes by slashing them 57 per cent. The lo-

cal government of Orange County, one of the richest places in the world, declared bankruptcy in 1994. Back here in B.C., you may have heard that some national chain stores have had a bit of difficulty with the PST exemptions that have been attached in recent years. Stores have inadvertently charged PST for things like fire extinguishers, and remitted it to Victoria.

Also gone are exemptions for over-the-counter medications, adult-sized clothes for bigger kids, caulking and insulation. B.C. residents can manage without these political sops, the main result of retaining provincial authority over sales taxes.

cine because so much emphasis has been placed upon the conventional pharmaceutical treatment approach to illness. A few years back, an independent study commissioned by Prince Charles in Britain called for therapies such as acupuncture and herbal remedies and homeopathy to be made widely available to that country’s National Health Service. The study concluded that action would bring widespread benefits to that nation’s health and the economy. The report, led by economist Christopher Smallwood, investigated the “big five” complementary and alternative therapies—osteopathy and chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy and herbal medicine. Based on case studies from three health centres in Newcastle, Glastonbury and north London along with a comprehensive literature review, it found many patients derived significant benefits from accessing the com-

In this country, we would be wise to consider a similar approach to health care. Not only would waiting lists for surgeries be eliminated, the cost savings alone would be enough for a program like that to sustain itself. Up to now, we have not been able to do this because, contrary to popular belief, the government does not really run the health care system in this country. The government is told what health services will be offered and what drugs pharmacare

plans should cover. They are told this by the people who make and sell the equipment for these services and who manufacture the drugs to complement the services. There are, however, many disorders that probably could be treated more effectively with a complementary alternative medicine approach, such as chronic illnesses that have exhausted all other available conventional options. Anxieties and depression would be other good candidates for a different health care approach. This approach will allow doctors to have their work loads lessened so they can provide the type of care their patients deserve. Alternative practitioners like homeopaths and naturopaths can help ease the backlog. To give you an idea of how popular homeopathy is in other countries, I offer this paragraph from a speech given by Prince Charles in October 2005 to the inaugural conference of the

Prince of Wale’s Foundation for Integrated Health: “Times and attitudes change, thankfully, and today integrated health is moving steadily towards the centre stage. Indeed, I have just come from re-opening the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital in Bloomsbury, which has gone through a £20-million refurbishment and has now become one of the first Foundation Trusts. Interestingly, the support they have had from the public has been overwhelmingly more than there has been for any other foundation trust and it really indicates the degree of public interest out there and the degree to which the public actually want this kind of choice.” If you feel passionate about the issue of alternative health care options, then add your voice to the cause. John G. Sherman is a professional classical homeopath. 250-764-2487 Cedarlake@telus.net

▼ TELUS DAY OF SERVICE

Kelowna residents among Nemo Trail to receive an upgrade service award honourees Four Kelowna residents will be among the B.C. volunteers who will be honoured in a formal ceremony at Government House in Victoria on Saturday, June 5. Trevor Day, Carlos Alves, Windie Jeider and Stacie Osborne are included in the list of recipients for the Order of St. John in recognition of their service to their fellow Canadians. Presenting the cita-

kon St. John Ambulance provide close to a quarter-million hours of community service annually, and the organization trains more than 100,000 people per year in emergency response and lifesaving techniques. “I am filled with admiration for all who voluntarily give of themselves, in the cause of preventing unnecessary suffer-

ing, deaths and disability while inspiring great trust in the ‘good offices’ of this most historic Order,” said Point. “The work that includes youth and relief programs as well as disaster support and a wealth of other services is the outward expression of the humane doctrine on which the Order was founded more than a thousand years ago.”

On Saturday, May 29, the fifth annual Telus Day of Service will take place in Kelowna on Saturday at Myra Bellevue Provincial Park, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. TELUS team members and retirees volunteer at local activities of their choice to make positive, heartfelt and lasting connections within the community. In Kelowna, Telus team members will be walking the Captain Nemo Trail and making a

difference along the way while they do it. Working alongside the Friends of the South Slopes Society and the Central Okanagan Mountain Bike Club, Telus team members will redirect one kilometre of the Captain Nemo Trail, making the area more accessible for public use. As Telus volunteers move along the trail, they will be shoveling and redirecting walkways to ensure safe access for pub-

lic use. Maintaining the Interior’s provincial park trails is necessary so that locals and visitors may have safe access today and for years to come. The Captain Nemo Trail is located north of the Kettle Valley Railroad trail in Myra Bellevue Park. The meeting point is at the junction of June Springs and Luxmoore Roads just outside of the park boundaries.

More than 9,100 team members, family, friends and retirees participated in TelusDay of Service 2009, contributing 28,000 volunteer hours in 175 volunteer events in 23 regions across Canada.

Infiniti QX56 offers new style, more amenities Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

CONTRIBUTED

ALL NEW FOR 2011, the Infiniti QX56 flagship SUV offers a new, less truck-like exterior, more power and better fuel economy—and with loads of leading edge safety and handling technology.

Traveling east from Louisville, home to the Kentucky Derby, birthplace of Muhammad Ali and former home to such notables as Colonel Sanders and Diane Sawyer, there’s no better way to enjoy the verdant, rolling terrain than from within the executive-jet-like confines of the 2011 Infiniti QX56. All new for 2011, this full-size luxury SUV is right at home among the sprawling estates and picturesque horse farms that span the surrounding countryside.

It is available in two models: the QX56 4WD seven-passenger and the QX56 4WD eight-passenger. The former gets captain’s chairs in the second row; the latter gets a 60/40-split folding bench seat. The MSRP for both well-equipped versions is $73,000, with an optional technology package for another $8,000. Vehicles like these— no matter how much bling they carry—are typically big and trucky both in appearance and in how they perform. Not so, with the new QX, which although See Infiniti B2

slightly longer and wider than the previous model, is also substantially lower—which is good for handling. It has even shed a few pounds. Front underbody and rear spoilers improve aerodynamics, and its contours are smoother and more pleasing than its boxy Nissan Armadabased predecessor. The vehicle’s standard 20-inch and optional 22inch alloys nicely fill the pronounced wheel arches that include integrated body-colour front and rear splashguards. Between these, and helping you climb in and out of the QX, are body-colour running boards. From the front, wraparound, projector-style bixenon headlights sit relatively low astride the large, double-arched chrome grille, but the look works. And I like how the lights follow the contour of the front wheel openings. These lights also feature pop-up washers, with an optional auto-leveling, adaptive front lighting system. Heated, powerfolding sideview mirrors help cut wind resistance, and include integrated turn signals, courtesy lights and reverse tiltdown feature. Other exterior niceties include a standard power moonroof, power rear liftgate and concealed tow hitch. I like the side port holes, which seem more of a retro touch than a nod to Buick. They are functional on the driver’s side, acting as a cold air intake for the all-new 5.6-litre DOHC V8. This is the same engine used in the new M, but specifically tuned for the QX, giving it a broad-

er torque curve to push this heavier vehicle. It has the same displacement as last year’s powerplant, but delivers 400 hp (80 more horses) and 413 lb/ ft of torque (up 20 lb/ft). All this comes with 12 per cent better fuel economy. Power is routed through a new seven-speed automatic with adaptive shift control, manual shift mode and downshift rev match. Compared with last year’s five-speed gearbox, the new one provides a wider range of gear ratios, a variable lockup torque converter and improved shift schedule. Unable to drive both back-to-back, my only comment here is that the new transmission shifts readily when pushed, yet is nearly imperceptible in regular driving. I tried the paddle shifters, and while you wouldn’t expect to use them on this type of vehicle, found them remarkably effective on the twisty-turny backroads. More on that later. Kentucky’s late spring weather provided no opportunity to put Infiniti’s All-Mode 4WD to the test. This system offers three modes. Auto is reardrive biased and ideal for most conditions, continually adjusting power front to rear. Depending on demand, 100 per cent can be directed to the rear or up to 50 per cent in front. 4 High functions up to 100 km/h and locks the centre differential; 4 Low locks it in low range for when you’re really bogged down. Hill Start Assist is appearing more and more on trucks and SUVs, and is standard on the QX. It pre-

Infiniti from B2 vents rollback when starting on an incline, making it easier to switch from brake to accelerator. Snow Mode adjusts the throttle for smoother starts on slippery surfaces and Tow Mode changes tthe transmission’s shift patterns to hold each gear longer when pulling a /heavy load. The QX has a maxrimum towing capacity of 3,856 kg (8,500 lbs) and I had the opportunity to test some of this capability at the very scenic Ardmore horse farm near Versailles, about an hour east of Louisville. Hitched to a 6000-lb horse trailer, I barely felt a rtug as the QX moved easily from rest, even on an incline. And when faced twith a tight turn on one of the farm’s driveways (they don’t like you driving on the grass) the standardequipped Around View Monitor, with eight-inch tcolour display, kept me on the asphalt and out of trouble. Another cool feature is the standard tire pressure monitoring system that feliminates the need for a tire gauge. If your tire is down a few psi, just start inflating and the horn will honk (and hazards flash) when the correct pressure is reached. It will also let you know when you’ve overinflated. Part of the Technology Package, which includes rloads of leading-edge safety and handling tech, tis the Hydraulic Body Motion Control System. It uses hydraulic cylinders at each shock absorber, cross-connected to allow the fluid to move from side to side. In a nutshell, it adapts to increased pressures on either side of the vehicle—for example during cornering—and

reduces body lean, not to mention bounce on rough roads. I will attest to its effectiveness on twisty roads, as it noticeably flattened the ride during hard cornering. This was more of what I’d expect from a sports sedan, rather than a full-sized SUV.

Inside, the smoothriding QX has one of the quietest cabins I’ve experienced—thanks in part to the all-new body and frame, designed for increased stiffness and reduced vibration. Insulated noise reducing glass also plays a role. All three rows of seating are appointed in semianiline leather. The driver’s seat is 10-way power adjustable with memory, which also takes in the steering wheel and outside mirrors. The front passenger seat is 8-way power adjustable.

Toyota’s flagship sedan gets a facelift for 2011 model year Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

The Avalon is Toyota’s flagship sedan, but you’d be hard pressed to find many people on the street who could pick one out from a Camry. That’s because there aren’t many of them sold here and because it does look somewhat similar to a Camry and has a wheelbase only 45 mm longer. Toyota has found that most of its Avalon customers (280 were sold in Canada last year) are from the senior age bracket. And even many of the more elderly drivers (including an 83-year-old named Iris) said during focus group sessions that the car could do with a bit of updating in the styling department. So, Toyota has tried to remedy that with a refreshed look both inside and out for 2011. In fact, all the body panels except the doors and roof are new for this year. Toyota executives say they would like to attract a younger audience (3555 year olds) with the refreshed Avalon so they added a bit more flash and

bright work on the outside, but not too much as to take away from the elegance that this full-size premium sedan attempts to convey. “The Avalon has always been the epitome of elegance,” said Sandy Di Felice, director of Toyota Canada. “The Avalon is for people who do not want a flashy car but at the same time want to indulge themselves.” So did they succeed? Well, the new Avalon offers a better overall package than before at a more reasonable price ($41,100). Toyota describes the new exterior look as having “dynamic and expressive lines,” but it may still lack the pizzazz needed to catch the eye of a younger crowd and grow sales significantly. Still, Toyota Canada has fairly modest expectations for the car, hoping to sell between 350 and 500 for this model year. Nevertheless, the new look takes the Avalon down a more exciting design road with what chief engineer Randy Stephens calls “significant changes for this time in the model run.”

WHILE IT STILL has a ways to go to match the exterior styling of Toyota’s Venza crossover, the 2011 Toyota Avalon has been upgraded with revised sheet metal and more brightwork outside. It has a revised front grille with more chrome and new high-tech projector beam headlamps with light pipes. From the addition of more chrome on the front grille and side rocker panels, to high-tech projector headlamps with light pipes and rear tail lamps

with LED light pipes, the Avalon for 2011 has a much more modern look to it. Other new features include foldable heated power side mirrors with

LED turn signal, 17-inch polished alloy wheels and prominent dual exhaust pipes. The spacious cabin makes the Avalon an ideal

touring car for up to five people and Toyota chose the aptly named Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland for its Canadian launch.

that hug the seashore and take you from one beautiful vista to another. The Avalon is Toyota’s most North American vehicle. The restyling was carried out at Toyota’s California design studio. While the Corolla, Matrix and RAV4 (all built in Canada) account for 50 per cent of Canadian sales, Toyota prides itself in offering a car for all tastes. So for those who want a sophisticated sedan full of all the latest in technology, the Avalon is it, designed and built in North America for a North American audience. Overall, it has significant enhancements for 2011; with many of them in the revamped interior that isn’t flashy but has a distinctly Lexus-like feel to it. Power for this frontwheel drive vehicle comes from a 24-valve, 3.5-litre DOHC V6 engine, making 268 hp and 248 lb/ft of torque. This is the same engine offered in the upscale Camry models. The V6 is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and it is equipped with the latest valve-control mechanism to provide a broader power band, while at the same time requiring less fuel and generating fewer emissions.

As far as fuel economy is concerned, the Avalon is rated by Natural Resources Canada at 10.6L/100 km (27 mpg) city and 6.8L/100 km (42 mpg) highway for a combined 8.9L/100 km (32 mpg). Inside, one of the highlights of the Avalon is the amount of rear seat legroom. Three passengers fit comfortably in the rear seats and the wide door openings and flat floor area make entry and exit a breeze. The rear seats also recline slightly, a feature unique to Avalon in the segment. There is a passthrough to the trunk, but the rear seats do not recline to add to the generous trunk capacity. Meanwhile, all seating surfaces are leather, heated in front and with eightway power adjustments for the driver’s seat. There is also a driver’s memory with two settings. The revised dash sports a new instrument panel with easy-to-read Optitron gauges featuring white illumination with white pointers. While the owners of current Avalons are generally older, they like their technology and Toyota decided to package almost all its available tech-

is what you get. Toyota has decided to offer the Avalon for 2011 in the upscale XLS trim only in Canada. That model accounted for 60 per cent of sales for 2010 and was priced at $4,745 more than the incoming car. So the Avalon presents quite a bargain when you consider it’s not much more than a fully-loaded V6 Camry and less than the starting price for a Lexus ES 350. That’s why Toyota hopes to capture some move-up buyers from the Camry as well as others who want an entry-lux-

and Brake Assist. The trunk even has a full-size spare tire on an alloy wheel and each wheel has its own air pressure sensor. On the road, the Avalon presents a smooth, comfortable, soft ridemuch like you would find in its Lexus counterpart, the ES 350. This is a family entryluxury sedan and not a sport sedan, so the ride and handling is similar to competitors such as the Hyundai Genesis, Buick Lucerne, Chrysler 300 and Ford Taurus.

Land Rover LR4 offers a unique package for 2010 Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

It was one of those days you wait all winter for. Rolling along under sunny skies, windows cracked open, acoustic blues pulsing lightly from the radio, the wheels rumbling along the highway with a kind of endless cadence that makes you rwant to just keep going on and on. We were on the way home from the antique market and we hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bought a single thing. Which was fine. A narrow escape can be almost as satisfying as a successful hunt. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot easier on the wallet. My wife glanced over as we rolled along and we both grinned at the unspoken recognition of a very good day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always nice to see how the other half lives. And some of them live very well in vehicles like the Land Rover LR4. The LR4 (still known as the Discovery 4 outside of North America) stems from the original ancestor of the brand, tracing its roots back to the first postwar Land Rover that laid

It improves on last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LR3 with revised V8 power mated to a new transmission, smoother on-road performance due to chassis revisions, an updated TerrainResponse system for more off-road capability and extensive exterior and interior refreshments to compliment new levels of tech and luxury content. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The outgoing LR3 has well over 100 international awards to its name.

mended but the owner’s manual gives regular 87-octane gas the okay. This motor will move the LR4 from 0-100 km/h in 7.6 seconds, which is pretty impressive when you consider its curb weight, this year up to 2,646 kg (5,833 lb). It’s a good thing the power rating has increased because so has its pants size. The motor is mated to a revised ZF HP28 6-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel-drive system, controlled through a very user-friendly multi-mode dial in the cabin with settings for: • General driving • Grass/gravel/snow • Sand • Mud and ruts • Rock crawl. Those setting will get drivers through everything from cottage roads and winter weather to the apocalypse. And with comprehensive changes that include new suspension components, a more precise Hill Descent control system, smoother steering, bigger brakes and improved traction control, the LR4 has been optimized for almost any on-road or off-road driving situation. There’s more bushbashing ability here than ninety-nine percent of drivers will ever need or want to use, especially at the risk of their paint jobs and the lack of lattes and cell phone coverage. All these techy bits have been wrapped in a refreshed and refined package. The exterior design has been updated, smoothed and obviously moved closer to the more upscale, squared-off Range Rover style, but the iconic hints remain—the uniquely curved, wiper accommodating, horizontally-split tailgate, the stepped roof heritage and the rear side windows that curve into the roofline, reflecting the Alpine windows of the past. Inside, the transformation continues with a new dash and centre console, new seats and an array of other new features. The new interior not only has a much more premium look and feel, it’s also gained improvement to its functionality. The new console inclines towards the driver, the switchgear and controls fall more readily to hand, and new LED am-

bient lighting helps make the cabin a more pleasant and more easily used space after dark,” according to Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director. Some of the features available for the LR4 include a portable audio interface, DVD entertainment, a new key system which offers Keyless Entry and Push Button start and a new five-camera ‘surround’ system to assist in everything from low-speed rock crawling to parking and towing hookups. The LR4 starts at $59,900. As tested, it lists for $77,720 (HSE LUX PLUS Package $12,690, Roof Rails $180, Rear Seat Entertainment $2,750, 20inch 10-Split Spoke Alloy Wheels $2,200) (not including destination and taxes). That puts this tested model close to the starting price of a Range Rover Sport but still well below the almost-$100K price level of the premium class Range Rover. I’ve always had a soft spot for the original Land Rovers and their Disco descendants. Those predecessors would sometimes be the butt of my jokes over their oddball styling and yestertech content. But it would never be a mean-spirited critique. More like the family teasing over the endearing eccentricities of some favoured uncle whose basic strengths and reliability more than make up for any occasional foibles. And with this latest generation of LR4, Land Rover has smoothed out some of those eccentricities of the past, retaining the uniqueness of the brand in a very refined package that shines with new technologies, new content levels and the kind of any road, any weather, any situation capabilities other SUVs could only wish for.

True or false? The 2010 GMC Terrain with four-cylinder engine gets the best highway tmileage in the compact CUV segment. The answer is true. Also sold as the Chevrolet Equinox, the madein-Canada Terrain fourrcylinder also boasts the best city/highway combined mileage of anything

in the segment, with the possible exception of the Ford Escape Hybrid. In real world terms, this first offering from the new GM has a cruising range of 1,150 kms on one tank of regular gasoline. The strategy behind the new Terrain and Equinox is “make fuel economy a win” and this was achieved by a number of means, one of which is the 2.4-litre inline fourcylinder engine with dir-

ect fuel injection and variable valve timing producing 182 hp and 172 lb/ft of torque. The result is a fuel economy rating of 9.2/6.1/7.8L/100 km city/ highway/combined in the front-wheel-drive (FWD) version. Using a six-speed automatic transmission, the FWD Terrain accelerates from 0-60 mph in 8.7 seconds. Power was increased by five to eight per cent

and cold start emissions were reduced by 25 per cent. According to GM Canada, a Terrain driver with the four-cylinder will save $100-$300 a year over its non-hybrid competitors. The other engine available is a 3.0-litre V6 also with direct injection and variable valve timing with a beefier version of the six-speed automatic

12.1/8.0/10.2L/100 km city/highway/combined. The four-cylinder is standard, with the V6 an option on all but the base model. Terrain is aimed at the most competitive market segment in Canada, the compact CUV, which makes up 27 per cent of annual sales. In trying to attain fuel consumption GM engineers agree there was no one silver bullet to achieving the targets set to make the Terrain the leader in its class. For instance, low rolling resistance tires for low fuel consumption were designed expressly for the Terrain. Rack electric power steering was used on the 2.4-litre instead of hydraulic. The body, which was designed in Oshawa, spent hours in the wind tunnel until the shape went from a drag coefficient of the previous Terrain of 0.42 down to 0.36, or about the same as the C5 Corvette. Another challenge was noise and vibration. GM looked at things you’d expect such as foam injected into crevices, triple door seals and acoustic pads everywhere down to the infinitesimal like shift cable and steering boot openings in the firewall designed to quell sound coming from the trans-

tem that has 200 mm (7.9 in) fore and aft travel. Fully back there is limousine like legroom. With the 60/40 split/fold seat forward there is 889 litres (31.4 cu. ft) of cargo space. When it comes to safety, we now expect fourwheel disc brakes with ABS, but Terrain also comes standard with tire pressure monitoring, electronic stability control and rollover mitigation control.

It consists of a microphone mounted in the headliner just above the driver and another at the back. They act not unlike giant noise cancelling headphones that detect low rumbles and send out a counter tone from a speaker in the rear. Adding everything together, GM claims the Terrain is up to three times quieter than the competi-

tion. During the design stage I was told an interesting story about the seats. The engineering team wanted them to be the most comfortable and supportive in the segment so they measured every imaginable parameter. They got these measurements down so accurately, they learned one of the GM engineers testing out the seats was had a back ailment that required medical treatment. One result was the MultiFlex rear seat sys-

Highway Driving: How to Merge Safely in Traffic KATE WELLS Merging onto a highway or freeway can be a scary experience for some drivers, especially those who are new, inexperienced or simply did not learn how to merge properly. Drivers have to react faster and make decisions quicker when travelling at higher speeds, especially on a highway or freeway. When merging onto a highway, drivers really don’t have a lot of time. One of the most dangerous things a driver can do when merging is to stop at the end of a merge lane. Here are the steps when merging onto a highway:

Free Learners Preparation Wednesday, June 16th 6:30 - 8:30 pm Full Driving Course: June 5th - Saturday Program June 15th - Tuesday Evenings

1. As you are approaching the merge lane, scan the traffic you are about to merge with. This gives you an idea of where you and your vehicle might “fit in.” 2. Accelerate to match the speed of traffic already on the highway. This is the most important part, and one many drivers do not follow. 3. Once you have accelerated and have matched the speed of the other vehicles, signal left. This alerts the drivers already on the highway that you are going to merge. 4. Last, check your mirrors and do a final shoulder check to make sure there is no vehicle in your blind spot.

5. Finally, if it is safe, merge with the flow of the traffic. Remember, it’s illegal to merge over a solid white line. You must wait until you see the broken white line to complete your merge. If you are a driver already on the highway and you see a merge lane up ahead, when possible, move into the left lane to give space to the driver who is about to enter the highway. Never drive too close to the vehicle in front to not allow the merging vehicle in. Also, don’t sit in the merging vehicle’s blind spot. If we all follow the rules, it makes our roads safer for everyone!

ROBERTSON, MYRTLE EVELINE (NEE BENSON)

Myrtle, age 95, passed away Tuesday, May 18, 2010, at Sun Pointe Village, Kelowna, BC. Myrtle is survived by her husband of 73 years, Harold William Robertson, who also resides at Sun Pointe. They met in Somme, SK. When Harold retired from teaching in 1970, Myrtle and Harold moved to Kelowna where they built their own house in Rutland. While in Saskatchewan, they made their home in Yeoman, Archerwill, Imperial, McQuarrie, Nora, Wadena, and Viscount. For many years, Myrtle and Harold enjoyed their annual RV trips to the Prairies to visit friends and family and welcomed the return visits. Myrtle was born April 9, 1915, at Hatton, North Dakota, USA, to Odin and Lizzie (nee Hove) Benson. In 1920 the family immigrated to Saskatchewan Canada, first to Stalwart and then to the homestead at Porcupine Plain. Myrtle’s grandparents had immigrated to the USA from Sogn og Fjordane, Norway. She was predeceased by her four sisters, Martha, Judith, Rhoda, and Freda, and six brothers, Thomas, Loyal, Olin, Elnor, Sever, and Howard. Myrtle is survived by four children, Frances (Alden) Lassen (nee Wagstaff) of Flin Flon, MB; Kenneth (Sylvia) Robertson of Victoria, BC; Garry (Valerie) Robertson of Yorkton, SK; and Carolin Robertson of Kelowna, BC. She will be remembered by many nieces and nephews, as well as four Robertson grandchildren, Shannon (Steve) Wolstenholme of Langley, BC; Melanie (Grant) Wurts of Yorkton, SK; Jared (Trina) Robertson of Yorkton; and Melinda (Grant) Ottenbreit of Yorkton; as well as nine great-grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren. Thank-you to the staff and friends at Sun Pointe Village for their care and kindness to Myrtle and Harold. No service or flowers by request. Those wishing may send memorial donations to the charity of their choice. Arrangements entrusted to Valleyview Funeral Home with interment at Lakeview Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

NOTICE OF ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS OPPORTUNITY FOR RESIDENTS WITHIN THE GLENMORE-ELLISON IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT BOUNDARIES Okanagan Lake Water Quality Improvement Project The Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District (GEID) Board of Trustees has approved a $15.7 million dollar project that will significantly improve water quality for their landowners. GEID intends to construct a supply intake and pump station on the foreshore of Okanagan Lake and a transmission main from the pump station site through to the McKinley Reservoir site. The “Okanagan Lake Project Loan Authorization Bylaw #115” proposes to borrow $12,000,000. The balance of project costs ($3,700,000) will come from District Reserves. The BC Ministry of Community and Rural Development, who oversees Improvement Districts, recommends the use of the Alternate Approval Process for infrastructure projects. GEID may not proceed with Long-Term Borrowing if it receives responses against this proposal signed by at least 10% of the qualified electors within the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District boundaries. The number of qualified electors who must sign the Alternate Approval Process Elector Response form against the borrowing proposal to prevent the Board of Trustees from proceeding is 896. Electors may only sign an Alternative Approval Process Elector Response form once, no matter how many properties the person might own within the District. If you are NOT opposed to the Borrowing Proposal outlined above, do nothing. The Alternative Approval Process Elector Response forms are only for those who are OPPOSED to this action. You may respond only if you are a registered owner of real property (qualified elector) within the GEID District Boundaries. Alternative Approval Process Elector Response forms will be accepted only if they are in the form established by the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District. Forms are available at the GEID office, and on GEID’s website www.glenmoreellison.com, beginning May 26th, 2010. Elector Response forms must have an original signature to be acceptable. The Alternative Approval Process Elector Response forms must be submitted to the Administrative Treasurer, Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District, 445 Glenmore Road, Kelowna, BC, V1V 1Z6. Elector Response forms may not be submitted by email or facsimile. The deadline for submitting signed Alternative Approval Process Elector Response forms opposing the borrowing proposal is June 30th, 2010 at 4:00 pm. General information on this project is available for viewing at the GEID Office during regular office hours. OPEN HOUSES will be held on Thursday, June 10th, 2010 from 2:00-5:00 pm and on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010 from 4:00-7:00 pm at the GEID Office. General information is also available on our website. If 10% of the number of qualified electors sign an Alternative Approval Process Elector Response form opposing this borrowing proposal, GEID must then receive assent from the qualified electors by referendum, petition or by vote at a special general meeting in order to proceed with this project. This is the first of two publications of this Notice.

Insurance is sold through BCAA Insurance Agency and underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Company of Canada.
