Under New Management The Edgewater Inn

August 12, 2011 Peachland, BC Volume 07 | Number 32

By Cindy Fortin There has been an abundance of rumour, speculation and conjecture over the last few years regarding the state of the Trepanier Manor development located on MacKinnon Road, up Trepanier. Is the project at a standstill? Has the developer gone bankrupt? Is the property in foreclosure? In an open and candid interview, Scott Wilshaw, the best known of the three partners of Trepanier Manor Corp. (the other two being Byron Dafoe and Richard Dudelzak), sat down with the View, paperwork and evidence in hand, to allow a close-up look at the facts, finances, cause of delays, bank action, and the recent progress of the project. A little history on Wilshaw and the enterprise… Wilshaw moved from the U.K. to Peachland eight years ago. Trepanier Manor Corp. has been going for four-and-a-half years, since 2007. Wilshaw has a background in hospitality, and while he trained as a chef, decided to go into hotel management, in which he managed resorts, and built hotels for other people, he says. Wilshaw was familiar with Peachland, and chose the area for the development because it seemed an ideal location. “There was a need for it, and it was close to the wineries, it was close to the Coquihalla, the Connector, the airport, and it’s a great destination. I am very familiar with Peachland, because even as a kid we used to come through here,” says Wilshaw. Design plans for Trepanier Manor consist of an European style, Five Star Hotel of 54,000 sq ft, privately owned and operated, along with 20 home sites, 15 of which would have guest cottages as well, all on 25 acres. The hotel, itself, would have 38 suites, two restaurants, two bars, music room, spa, health club, two swimming pools, an outdoor and indoor cookery school and vineyards. The show home has already been built, but delays have kept the project from moving ahead over the last few years -- the biggest roadblock being “subdivision”. “Before you can build anything, or before you can even close a sale, you need to have subdivision. That took 15 months longer than it should have and it cost us $1.4 million due to third party cost overruns. A great deal of that money went to the installation of services, such as gas, water, sewer and hydro. The cost had initially been projected closer to $900,000. “That was money we hadn’t budgeted for and had to find,” says Wilshaw. He adds that it is much like the chicken and egg scenario. You can’t start selling until you have the subdivision, and you can’t start paying the mortgage principle until you start selling. On May 26, 2011, after a lengthy struggle, Trepanier Manor finally received their subdivision documents,

and this week they are filing a Disclosure form so the subdivided property will officially be registered with the Land Registry office. This means that instead of being considered as just one large lot, they have legally become 21, finally allowing them to begin selling and start the building stage. “A lot of people in this town didn’t understand that,” says Scott. Then there is the issue of a pending foreclosure on the property by Canadian Western Bank. Trepanier

Manor has been in forbearance for the last year, explains Wilshaw, which he says is understandable. But, he stresses, it is not due to lack of payment of the $4.1 million mortgage. Rather, it has been the lengthy amount of time it has taken to get subdivision and move the project ahead. “During this time we continued, and still continue, to pay our $20,000 a month in interest. The bank has alContinued on page 2

Canada retains its Triple A credit rating By Dan Albas, MP - Okanagan-Coquihalla In last week’s report I raised the topic of debt and government spending. Since that time, Standard and Poor’s has taken the unprecedented move of lowering the United States credit rating. My understanding is that this is the first credit downgrade in United States history. What was also stated in last week’s Member of Parliament report is that Canada’s Triple A credit rating has just been reconfirmed indicating support for our country’s fiscal management. Fortunately, another positive development occurring in the past seven days was recent Statistics Canada data confirming

more net new jobs were created across Canada, with July being the second largest monthly gain on record. One area of concern that I have heard from many of you recently pertains to high gas prices and, in particular, why gas prices in some areas of Okanagan-Coquihalla are higher than others. As I pointed out on my blog recently, government, both federally and provincially, must share some of the blame for taxation that is contained within the price of gasoline. However, there are still other variables that remain unexplained. It is my intention to investigate this matter further as a Member of Parliament and report back to you with my findings. To date I am in the process of meeting with those who have been previously, or are currently, involved within the industry, for further information. The buzz out of Ottawa this past week has been revelations the new interim leader of the NDP, Nycole Tur-

mel, was recently a member of the Bloc Québécois and, until last week, also held a membership in a hard-line Quebec sovereignty association. Apparently holding a membership in another political party is contrary to the NDP constitution and many critics have expressed concern over the prospect that a potential separatist may be the leader of a federalist party. While the concerns are not without merit I believe we must not overlook that Nycole Turmel is an interim leader for the NDP, as we all hope for a speedy recovery of Jack Layton in his courageous battle with cancer. I would rather our attention in this case be focused more on the fight against cancer that many Canadians are bravely fighting each and every day with slowly improving outcomes. Those battles are hard fought and not always won, but let us make sure that no one fights them alone.

B.C. recognized as a leader in healthy living Bill Barisoff, MLA - Commentary This week will likely be the first in many that the topic of the HST will potentially not be part of the weekly headlines. With the HST referendum vote deadline now passed the results are not expected until roughly the end of August. There is little doubt that the HST will become a significant chapter in British Columbia’s history, as well as being an example for other governmental jurisdictions in how not to introduce taxation policy. I do respect that many citizens did look at the HST with an open mind and regardless of supporting or opposing positions made the decision to cast a ballot and participate in the process. On a different theme, this week will be the start of the new Healthy Families BC walking challenge. From now until September 19th you and your family can have a chance to become active and win great prizes for your family and community. We all know what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle: be physically active, eat nutritious meals, get plenty of sleep, limit alcohol and eliminate tobacco use. By sharing stories, photos or videos of your favourite walk you can win weekly prizes. The top five communities in their population size range with the

most submissions will each receive $10,000 to support the development of walking trails. One of the five winning communities will be randomly drawn to receive an additional $50,000. While B.C. is recognized as a leader in Canada when it comes to healthy living, smoking and obesity still remain the highest preventable causes of death among many British Columbians. For more information about Healthy Families BC please visit www. HealthyFamiliesBCWalkingChallenge.ca. This week also includes another round of gaming grant awards. The St. John Society, Penticton Safety Village, The Summerland Cat Sanctuary Society and the Penticton & District Emergency Program Society are just some of the volunteer organizations that will receive collectively some $90,000 in provincial gaming revenues for this region. On a related note, I would also like to thank the many volunteers involved with the very successful Penticton Peach Festival that was once again a huge success. I would be remiss if I did

v o lu

not point out that citizens come together for a variety of different reasons. In recent weeks, as a community, we have all been deeply saddened by a senseless event that occurred on Ellis Street. Words cannot begin to describe this incident; however it is truly heartening that so many in our community have come together in support of others. As a parent and a grandparent, my prayers are with the victim and it is times such as these where family, friends and the kindness of others is what makes a difference to all involved.

Peachland firefighters respond to serious interface fire on weekend Continued from page 2 truck was also sent up to Desert Pines where it could access a fire hydrant. At one point, about 20 firefighters, including a forestry attack crew, fought the blaze. It took about two hours to ensure they had the fire under control and it was no longer a threat, said Topham. Fortunately, the wind was in their favour, as nighttime winds tend to flow downward, as opposed to daytime winds that often travel upwards. Mop-up continued well into the next day. It is estimated that ½-hectare was lost in the blaze, which was determined to be suspicious, as it consisted of three or four separate fires in the vicinity. RMCP are now investigating. This is not the first time there has been trouble at this location, which is

private property at 5400 Chidley Road. “We have a lot of incidents in that area, with small fires and bonfires. There is a lot of partying going on, and transients camping in the area,” said Topham. He asked that people take special care when spending time in wooded areas. “This is the time of the year we are high into extreme hazard and we need people to be very careful and diligent, especially in forest interface areas,” he said. Should a person see anything suspicious or out of the ordinary don’t hesitate to call 911, he added. “Don’t delay in calling for help, even for just a small fire. All of these fires start out small, but we need to know as soon as possible so we can get on it.” Police are also asking for any information concerning this incident. You can call the West Kelowna Detachment at 250-768-2880, or Crime Stoppers.

Editor’s Perspective

Our little sister next door adopts first Official Community Plan By Cindy Fortin Editor ∙ peachlandview@shaw.ca After two weeks on sick leave, it’s nice to be back at the View. Sick or not, being the news junkie that I am, I kept abreast of local and world news events while away. During that time, the U.S. Congress approved raising their country’s debt ceiling, a Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan by the Taliban killing 30 U.S. troops and several Afghan soldiers, and London tackled angry mobs who rioted after a young man was shot dead by a police officer, -- just to name a few. It makes it scary to even turn on the news these days. Closer to home, although substantially less critical, I was particularly interested in our little sister next door. On July 26th the District of West Kelowna adopted its first Official Community Plan (OCP), since incorporating in December of 2007. (I refer to them as our little sister, as they are in their municipal infancy. However, the areas of Westbank and the Westside have existed for about as many decades as Peachland.) My first reaction upon hearing the news of their new OCP was to let out a little chuckle. Mayor Findlater and council thanked the public and stakeholders “for providing their comments, concerns and support regarding this comprehensive plan.” On their District website, they noted that creating the right “community vision” for West Kelowna included: close consultation with the public, stakeholders and council, spanning a 30 month period; careful review of growth and development best practices; and the incorporation of new directions and legislative requirements in key areas like Climate Action. The adoption of the OCP came after a two-year engagement and drafting process. Two years? That sounds about right. I remember when, about 10 to 15 years ago, Peachland first came up with their Official Community Plan. It was standing room only in the Community Centre during the public hearing and open house. Goals and visions were laid out then too, and perimeters for growth and development were set – all of which were debated and discussed until the perfect OCP was presented in a neat and tidy bundle. Within a few short years the hack job began. It seems that whenever a developer came to town offering a few goodies, such as infrastructure and public amenities, the OCP could be altered in order to accommodate their development plans. Now, after a decade or so of bylaw amendments and other changes, our OCP looks much like a patchwork quilt that, if spread out, would be large enough to stretch from 1st to 13th Streets. To our little sister next door…it’s a good thing to have a plan in hand. I just hope you are prepared to cut and sew, because it will happen. So take a good look at your Official Community Plan, which you worked so diligently on now, because in a few short years it may be unrecognizable.

Okanagan Basin Board has done it again Dear Editor: I see the Okanagan Basin Water Board, the folks who strongly influenced our council to waste $1,100,000 on water meters, resulting in huge cost increases for many Peachland residents, have done it again. It is reported they are partners in a project that saw three large, hugely expensive buoys put into Okanagan Lake to monitor evaporation. Anna Warwick Sears of the Board is reported to have said “I’m so stoked about this. It’s super good for the valley.” I strongly disagree. The information collected will show that lake water evaporates more when the temperature is higher and when the wind is stronger. So what? The lake loses water in three ways -- evaporation, drainage and consumption by humans and animals. It receives water only

through precipitation and “treated” sewage. Knowing the evaporation rates will not change this or allow any type of action that will benefit us. If it rains or snows, the lake level will rise. If it does not rain or snow the level will fall. Downstream users want us to hold back water when levels are high, to protect them from flooding. They want us to release more water when levels are low, for their use. The only persons who will benefit from this project are the scientists, based in Burlington, Ontario, who will, no doubt, come to the Okanagan every summer, cruise around in large boats and “monitor and maintain” the buoys, all at the taxpayers expense. Nice work, if you can get it. John Humphries, Peachland

Thanks for making trip to downtown Peachland painful Dear Editor: I am writing this letter to the town of Peachland, mayor and council, mainly, to thank them. I would like to thank them for making my trip to downtown Peachland painful, so painful it’s to the point I rarely travel down Beach Avenue. I will take the highway and come in from the other end of town by the Blind Angler. Why, you ask? Because of the speed limit of 30 km/h, (which some people think if it’s 30 km/h it means I should go 20 km/h), the bicycles they rent at 13th, the rude tourists, and the boat trailers that are too wide for the parking spot, but they park there anyway. Oh and I can’t forget the turnout lane on 13th onto the highway where the merge lane is. I can’t count the amount of times I have sat behind a car that has no clue to get on the highway. Now if I have room I go around them and get in the merge lane, for which I have been called many colourful names and received lots of hand gestures, they all think I am Number One by the hand signals I get. I live on Beach Avenue towards the creek and yesterday I was crossing the road to the beach. I did look both ways and there was a car approaching, but there was plenty of time to cross. The car (with Alberta plates) sped up. I actually thought he

wasn’t going to stop, and when he got close enough to me he started yelling get off the road you (bleep bleep). Believe me, he came close to me, while laying the boots to his vehicle. I work in Westbank so I have to travel up and down Drought Hill every day. I have been made to follow vehicles as slow 30 km/h because they are sightseeing. (Yes, it is beautiful, but pull over to look.) The road to the highway by Todd’s complex is littered with vehicles parked on both sides, when actually I thought there was no parking on that road. So that’s it. Thanks Peachland mayor and council for making life for the tourists wonderful and life for the residents hell! Debbie Hostyn, Peachland

John was interested in hearing from Chamber boards on issues facing members. Turner said, advocacy is becoming the important component in providing value within chambers. This coincides with regional advocacy implemented through the Highway 97 Transportation Panel and Via 97 Committee. Turner has also heard from many chambers that they support regionalization of policy making. Networking and benefits also continue to provide value to members. As a member of both BC and

the Canadian Chamber, Peachland offers valuable discounts to its members. For example, discounts offered by ESSO, PetroCanada, Mohawk and Shell are an advantage to companies with numerous vehicles or travel related businesses. Medical benefits include dental, life, health, travel as well as short and long-term disability to name a few. Also Constant Contact, a provider of customized templates for flyers, surveys and newsletters, can enhance communication with customers or members of an organization. Peachland and Westbank Chambers will host a Constant Contact workshop, Wednesday September 14th at Deep Creek Estate Winery, from 5:30 to 8:00 pm.

Businesses can reap financial benefits as well as provide staff incentives, through the benefit programs of their local chamber. For more information www.peachlandchamb.bc.ca.

Refinishing historic floor at the Peachland Wellness Centre By Judy Wyper Did you know Neil Witt, who owned the Peachland Sawmill, originally constructed the Peachland Wellness Centre (PWC) building in the early 1940s as a family home? The PWC building has undergone extensive renovations over time. I was told by his daughter, Noel Ekrol, the flooring in the house was made from trees growing along Trepanier Creek. The house changed hands and was eventually sold to the Municipality of Peachland and rented. For a time it was even used by a church. In 2001 a determined group of citizens led by Phyllis Papineau entered into an agreement with the municipality to use it for a health resource centre. This soon became known as the Peachland Wellness Centre. Extensive renovations were undertaken by volunteers, and continue to this day, 10 years later! As part of building upkeep, steps are being taken to refurbish the floors: the same floors that Neil Witt laid down so long ago. This will be done under the watchful eyes of Doris Muhs, board member and project manager. A couple of years ago she was instrumental in overseeing the revitalization of the basement multipurpose area formerly housing the Red Cross Loan Cupboard. A new ceiling, cheerful wall paint, new windows, comfortable chairs, computer and desk stations transformed

it into a cheerful workspace. Doris also oversaw the replacement of upstairs windows this year. Volunteers are critical factors in all PWC matters. Board member Keith “Papa” Thom has taken time out of his busy entertainment and work schedule to be the official sander. Several people have been recruited for other duties such as moving furniture, cleaning walls and floors, applying the sealant and repositioning the furniture. Work began on the office and Tranquil Room after the August 7th Sunday breakfast. There are plans for later in the month to tackle the floors of the large front meeting area and the hallway. Refinishing is a greener practice than replacing or overlaying with a new surface. It also celebrates the history of the building and showcases good historic workmanship and native wood. The floors will add to the homelike ambiance of the building. The PWC is dedicated to improving the quality of life for groups and individuals residing in Peachland. If you need help or wish to volunteer, phone us at 250-7670141 or email us at WellnessCentre@ shaw.ca. Visit us on Facebook or on the web at www.peachlandwellnesscentre. org.

Food For the “Liar, Liar” By Pastor John Rankin, Peachland Baptist Church This is not a review of the Jim Carrey movie that came out in 1997. In fact, I have never seen it. But it is about telling the truth. I found out that it can be very dangerous to call someone a liar. One individual wanted to punch my lights out, another wanted to take me to court for slander. Children are not so caught up with these emotional reactions nor intimidated by others and tend to just tell it like it is. Lying is serious. Recently my wife was quite upset and I found out it was because two different individuals had blatantly lied to her and about her within a short period of time. Sadly, it is nothing new. In fact, all of us lie to one degree or another. King David said in Psalm 116:10 that “all men are liars,” Does that mean they lie all the

time? Not necessarily, although there are compulsive liars. Everyone of us has lied either by commission or omission, and there is not one person who can be completely counted on 100 per cent of the time. Every person will disappoint us at one time or another, including ourselves -- or rather, especially ourselves. In John 14:5-6 Thomas said to Jesus, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” When Jesus explained to Thomas the way to get to heaven He said, “I am the way, I am the truth.” He did not just say, I know the truth, or I speak the truth, but “I am the truth.” Because of His divine nature, He speaks only truth and cannot lie.

It is because God hates lies, lying is detestable to a Christian, who has received a new nature, Christ’s nature, and is being transformed into His image. We hate lies because it reminds us of who we used to be, and who we used to be deceived by, the father of lies, who is the archenemy of God and good and truth. His name is Satan, the original liar, liar. When Jesus was brought to court, Pilate found no fault in Him. Yet he still gave the orders for Jesus to be crucified to protect his own skin. And Jesus voluntarily went along with it, for if He wanted to escape, He could have called 10,000 angels to come for Him. He went to the cross willingly and died so that you and I could have life. He took the punishment for our sins so that by our faith in Him, we could be forgiven. Who wouldn’t believe that? Who wouldn’t believe in the One who only speaks the truth? Most likely it is only those who prefer to remain in their lies. Jesus said in John 8:47, “He who belongs to God, and hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” Are you listening to Him? Do you truly belong to God? I hope and pray that you do for He said in His Word, the truth will set you free! Please don’t listen anymore to the liar, liar, or follow after him in his ways.

Rotary Gourmet Dinner a full success

By Wolfgang Muhs, Rotarian Each year, the Peachland Rotary Club sells tickets for a gourmet dinner, which the winner can enjoy with the company of up to four guests. As part of the deal, the club comes to the winner’s home and prepares a sevencourse dinner for a group of up to six people. Last Sunday, the Rotary culinary team presented a summer dinner to the Cole family and guests who

decided to dine “al fresco” on their patio overlooking Okanagan Lake. The menu reflected summer with great colours and the freshest ingredients and was styled after the new cuisine of the Mediterranean. “Fresh heirloom tomatoes with feta cheese and olives” followed by a “Chilled Green Gazpacho soup” set the stage for the first main dish of “Trio of Seafood served on a Bed of Saffron Pasta”. After a refreshing salad of arugula and avocados, and a sherbet to cleanse the palate, the chefs presented the second main dish “Pork Tenderloin Wellington served with Red Beet Risotto and Steamed Vegetables”. The dish was well received, both for its colourful appearance and last but not least for its taste. The evening was closed off with a “Tiramisu” cake and coffee and liqueurs. The team paired Italian Prosecco with the appetizers, “Dirty Laundry” Pinot Gris with the seafood dish and “Cono Sur” Organic Pinot Noir with the meat dish. The Peachland Rotary Club would like to thank the Marketplace IGA in Peachland and Codfathers Seafood Market in Kelowna for their generous donation of key ingredients. Most chefs agree that cooking starts with the purchase of the ingredients and these two establishments provided the team with excellent material to work with.
