■ Dog show

Full weekend for handlers and judges ALLan Wishart

allanw@pgfreepress.com

The grounds at 5100 North Nechako Road went to the dogs on the weekend – in a good way. The Prince George Kennel Club held its annual dog show from Friday to Sunday, and both four-legged and two-legged visitors enjoyed the weekend. “We had to stop for about 20 minutes on Friday because of the lightning,” said professional dog handler Larry Clark, from Calgary, “but that was it. If it’s raining, the show goes on.” Clark gets to Prince George as often as he can, showing dogs for other owners. “I used to have my own dogs that I showed, but now I just show for others.” He said with some of the dogs, the owner doesn’t do a lot of work getting it ready for the show, so he has to, but other owners do most of the work themselves. “This little chihuahua I just showed was a perfect example. The owner couldn’t show it, and she asked me if I would show it. She wouldn’t even let her mother show it. “It got me in the heart. That will be the biggest prize for this weekend.” Clark was showing a wide variety of dogs on the weekend, from the chihuahua to an Irish wolfhound. “I got into it by accident, really,” he said. “I was a trainer, and people kept telling me I should be showing the dogs as well. “It’s a knack you get. A good handler can make a bad dog look good; a bad handler can make a good dog look bad.”

Claire Boudreau is another handler from Calgary who made the trip to Prince George. Sunday morning, she held one dachshund in her lap while three others squirmed for position in a cage beside her. “These dogs are all from an owner in Regina. There’s six varieties of dachshunds, and they all have their own personalities. “These ones like to stack themselves together when they’re in a cage. They get along really well.” Judge Nancy Popovich had to keep shedding layers of clothing on a beautiful Sunday morning. “I’m from Kelowna, and I’m kind of a hothouse flower,” she explained, “so I find it chilly here in the mornings.” As with the other judges at the show, Popovich was handling all seven groups of dogs for one show each day, which meant she could be seeing up to 175 dogs of all breeds. “I’ve been judging since 1994, and I was showing my own dogs since 1967 or 1968. It got to the stage where my dogs got older and I retired them from shows, but I wanted to stay involved.” Being a judge at a dog show isn’t a matter of showing up and getting to work. “It’s a long process,” Popovich said. “You start by being allowed to judge half of one of the groups, then you work up to judging a single group. After that, you get licences to judge more groups. “It takes 10 or 12 years to get to the point where you A lla n W ISHA RT/ Fre e Pre s s can judge a full show, like Larry Clark was handling all sizes of dogs at the Prince George Kennel Club Dog Show on the weekend, this one.” from chihuahuas to Irish wolfhounds.

Prince George artists Milan Basic created a huge mural for the wall of Canada Games House, which was unveiled Friday morning.

Latest work is not a Basic mural ALLan Wishart

allanw@pgfreepress.com

Having to work nights on a mural for the 2015 Canada Winter Games wasn’t a big problem for Prince George artist Milan Basic. “I sunburn easily,” he said Friday morning, shortly before the 24-foot high mural at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Quebec Street was unveiled. “I had to work at night, because we had to keep it under wraps so no one could see what it would look like – until now.” Shirley Bond, one of the speakers at the unveiling, could testify to Basic’s commitment. “My office is right across the street,” the Prince George-Valemount MLA said, “and I’ve been working late some nights. Whenever I left, I saw Milan working. “I had to do my best not to peek as I went by.” She added that the mural was an acknowledgement that the Games weren’t just about sports. “This is one of the ways we will have the Games make a lasting legacy, not just in sports, but in arts and culture in the region.” Mayor Shari Green echoed Bond’s remarks about the legacy value of the mural. “It’s helping to change the face of downtown, something we have been working hard to do. With the athletes village just a few blocks away, this will become a hub area during the Games.”

She also issued a challenge to another downtown business. “Now the pressure is on Telus to do something with their concrete wall.” Games host society CEO Stewart Ballentyne said he saw some significance in the date for the unveiling. “This is the same day as the Olympics open in London. You may not realize it, but 43 per cent of the Canadian team in London are Canada Games alumni. You will be seeing world-class athletes here in 2015.” Basic said the job took him just four nights. “I sketched the piece out on Sunday evening, and started painting on Monday. It’s done in spray paint, the same as some of my other larger works.” What is different, he said, is the style of painting. “This is much more photo-realistic, which is not what my other murals have looked like at all.” He noted the Canada Games Society had been “fantastic clients, great to work with,” and expressed his gratitude to the city of Prince George as a whole. “Moving here has helped me find inner peace, which is something important to everyone.” Just before the tarp covering the work was raised, Basic summed up why he painted the mural. “I like the colour it brings to Prince George, and it’s a legacy for my children and our children.”


Foul play ruled out in weekend Fraser River death

Military History

A llan WISHA RT/ Fre e Pre s s

While one of the convoy members grabbed a bite to eat in the passenger seat, visitors to the Freedom Route 5 convoy of historic military vehicles looked at the vehicles and information on display in the Legion parking lot on Monday.

The body of a man found floating in the Fraser River in the area of Landsdowne Road has been identified. No foul play is suspected. “The case has been turned over to the Coroners Service,” said Corp. Craig Douglass, Prince George RCMP media liaison. On July 29 just before 2 p.m., police were called to investigate the report of a body sighted floating in the river just past Fort George Park. After checking the shore lines on the west side of the river, the body was found in the Landsdowne Rd. area, nearly four km from the park. The RCMP’s forensic identification section and the B.C. Coroners Service were called to the scene. The man has been identified as Colin Oliver Wesley, 65, a city resident. The Coroners Service is continuing to investigate the cause of death. A press release from the service says, “The family of Mr. Wesley have been notified of his death. On behalf of family members, the Coroners Service asks that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time. The BC Coroners Service expresses its condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Wesley.”

Accessibility

The timing could not be better. At the same time as Ryan Latchman is checking businesses around town to make sure they are accessible for people with disabilities (see story on B2), City Hall is being questioned regarding a matter of accessibility within its own walls. Vincent Sherry, the chairperson of the advisory committee on accessibility, sent a report to council for Monday’s meeting, outlining concerns with the main staircase at City Hall. “Several members of our committee over the years have been visually impaired,” the report says, “and have come close to falling down these stairs because the edges are not marked with any sort of contrast to indicate where the edge is.” Sunlight coming through the large windows by the staircase and the shininess of the floor also contribute to the problem. It is perhaps somewhat ironic that a council which was elected on the basis of being transparent and accessible is now being called on to fix a problem with a form of accessibility. The signs on the staircase suggest it’s better to take the stairs and get some exercise, rather than take the elevator. But in a case like this, safety trumps fitness. “Many other community buildings have excellent markings on the stairs,” the report continues, “such as the library and CN Centre. We understand that even the employee stairs at City Hall are better marked than the public stairs.” We hope that by the end of the week, we will have seen a city employee with a can of yellow (non-skid) paint or some yellow marking tape, making sure the steps of City Hall are safe for all citizens. It’s a small step towards making City Hall more accessible, in a very obvious way.

Justice must be done Recently, a 20-year-old man from Surrey received a month in jail for his part in the Stanley Cup riots, which took place just over a year ago. Many people are hoping this sets a precedent for future sentencing, and it should. A one-month term for taking part in a riot – in which millions of dollars in property damage was done, police were assaulted, 150 people were injured and the global reputation of the Vancouver area was severely damaged – is light punishment. However, it is likely that many of those charged will not receive any punishment. Their cases may well be thrown out of court because of excessive delay, due to the severely plugged nature of the court system. If a case is delayed for 18 months or longer, through no fault of the defence, it is quite likely it will not come to trial. This is unacceptable. While it says volumes about the state of the court system, something that few people pay attention to unless they are directly involved, it sends a bad message to the rioters. It tells them they should do all they can to delay the process until they are charged. And they should not plead guilty. As a result, they may see their case dropped. The provincial government should set up a temporary court which can deal solely with riot cases. Everyone who is charged in connection with the riot should face trial, and do time if found guilty. If such a temporary court proves to work well, it could be used in other situations – such as to relieve system congestion in specific areas. If rioters are able to get off without any consequences because of a backlog of cases, the criminal justice system needs some creative fixing. The province can do something about this – now. Authority must trump lawlessness – Black Press

Knights looking ahead to next tourney AListair McInnis

sports@pgfreepress.com

Jody Hannon called Sunday’s provincial triumph at Citizen Field more satisfying than the experience five years ago. “Definitely. I’m so happy,” the IDL Midget Knights first baseman said shortly after they captured the 2012 BC Minor Baseball Association Midget AA provincial title. “I can’t really explain how it feels right now. I’m lost with words right now.” Despite obvious differences, it was hard not looking at the Knights without some reflection of a 2007 Prince George minor baseball team that also won a B.C. title at home. Anybody who followed the Knights en route to winning the championship banner knew how much most members of the team had been through. Hannon, 18, is among a core that had been playing together the past eight years. It’s a group that’s wrapping up its final campaign under the provincial minor baseball umbrella, as they’re 1994-born graduates ineligible to return next year. Among their trials and tribulations have been shortcomings in the previous two midget AA provincials. Last year, the Knights finished runner-up to the Vancouver Mounties, suffering a 10-2 setback in the championship game. Two

years ago, a less experienced Knights squad lost in the semfinals as hosts of the 2010 tournament. But they’ve had successes, notably as teammates on the Ritchie Bros. squad that won a 2007 Little League title. “This one felt like a lot closer game throughout the whole game,” said Hannon, who’s moving on to play varsity baseball at Okanagan College in the fall. “Back when we were 11, 12, 13, it was kind of a blowout and there was only three teams. The fact that out of 10 teams we came out on top after losing yesterday, it feels pretty good and it was a good team effort. Nobody got selfish.” The Knights won this year’s 10-team provincial tournament with a 7-3 triumph over Tsawwassen. In the 2007 Cal Ripken final, they hammered Langley 11-1. Quesnel rounded out the list of teams in that event, with those games held at Gyro Park. While he isn’t part of the graduating core, secondyear player Jared Young was a part of the 2007 Ritchie Bros. team.

Dave Bidini loves hockey and music

AListair McInnis

sports@pgfreepress.com

For Canadian performer Dave Bidini, tying hockey together with music has become second nature. Motivation has helped turn him into the success story he is today. But the 48-year-old also benefited from being raised in a region where it wasn’t hard to get influenced as an up and comer in the entertainment industry. Bidini hails from the greater Toronto region – Etobicoke to be precise –  a heavily populated, diverse and sophisticated part of the country. A few of Canada’s top bands and musicians started their careers in the city. Considering hockey is about as Canadian as maple syrup, he can’t be blamed for developing a passion for the contact sport on ice. He plays the game, watches the game and even sings about the game. All that noted, Bidini may be as suitable a guest for the Y Champions Hockey Weekend as they come. Bidini joins TSN SportsCentre hosts Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole as guests of the third annual event of its kind, Sept. 7 and 8 in Prince George. Bidini’s band, fittingly called BidiniBand, will perform a concert at Shooters Pub downtown on Sept. 7. “It’s pretty high energy and we’re a very sort of friendly band,” Bidini says. “Also, we’re inter-

But his ankles

or whatever and his skating, he’s still developing his skating style,” Bidini says. “But he’s a real gamer and tries really hard. We’ve kind of got every level of hockey represented in our band I’d say.” The band includes guitarist Paul Linklater and bassist Doug Friesen. BidiniBand was formed in 2007 after the Rheostatics, a band Bidini founded in 1979. Kerr also performed with the Rheo-

statics, Bidini noting that spectators attending their Prince George show can expect to hear songs from the original band. As a resident of the greater Toronto area, Bidini has followed and supported the Maple Leafs. Like so many Leafs fans of the National Hockey League franchise, Bidini has remained loyal, despite the team holding the National Hockey League’s lon-

gest Stanley Cup drought at 45 years and counting. Bidini’s song list even includes an ode to former Toronto Maple Leafs player Wendel Clark, and he’s performed at many hockey events. He even did a tribute show for the late Pat Burns, the former NHL head coach who passed away from cancer in November 2010 at the age of 58. Bidini is also a journalist, writer and filmmaker. He has a weekly column in the National Post, has written several books and put together different films. He helped put together BidiniBand’s In the Rock Hall album earlier this year, and is working on another book. Bidini has also travelled a lot, his career taking him around North America and overseas. The band’s summer touring schedule includes a stop in Wells for the upcoming ArtsWells festival. They’ll lead a songwriting band camp from July 31 to Aug. 3, and are among the list of festival musical performers. “I think you’re always kind of excited by your next thing, and what you’re working on at the time, the last song that’s written and the next book,” Bidini says. “The worst thing you can do really as an artist is to look back and rest on it. You’re happy to have that body of work, but you want to keep moving forward, so I think that’s kind of part of it for me.”
