The Revelstoke Times Review Year in Review 2011 Revelstoke was a hive of activity in 2011. A new wave of construction continued around town, including the new Revelstoke Secondary School, the new Best Western Hotel and the substantial completion of the third building at the base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort. That’s on top of Revelstoke 5 and the start of Mica units 5 & 6. Much of this work was conceived and begun before the global economic downturn came along, and Revelstoke was certainly fortunate to have the opportunity to build them all. In a town with just one of them, nothing can define community experience quite like a high school. The new Revelstoke Secondary School is the story of the year, since it’s emblematic of this construction wave and will continue to be a community hub for decades. Of course, it wasn’t all hard hats ‘n’ hammers. In our annual Year in Review issue, we summarize some of the biggest news, community, sports and business stories of the year. Happy New Year Revelstoke, and we’re looking forward to seeing you again in 2012. January 26

JACK LAYTON VISITS RIDING TO SUPPORT MARK SHMIGELSKY The federal NDP sees an opportunity in the riding of Kootenay-Columbia when current Conservative MP Jim Abbott bows out ahead of the next election. Abbott, who announced his planned retirement in early 2010, won the riding with a whopping 59.6 per cent of the vote in the 2008 election, well ahead of NDP candidate Leon Pendleton’s 22.6 per cent. Federal NDP leader Jack Layton was in Cranbrook on Jan. 24 to support NDP candidate and former Invermere mayor Mark Shmigelsky, who won the right to represent the NDP in KootenayColumbia just over a week ago.

NEW CAO TIM PALMER ARRIVES The City of Revelstoke’s new Chief Administrative Officer Tim Palmer will begin in Revelstoke sometime in mid to late February. Palmer recently resigned as the CAO of the Village of Burns Lake to take the position as Revelstoke’s top municipal employee.

Revelstoke was abuzz with new construction in 2011, including the new Best Western, and significant work done at the buildings at the base of RMR. None was bigger for the community Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review than the much-anticipated new high school.

CITY COUNCIL OPTS FOR 4% RESIDENTIAL TAX INCREASE Revelstoke city council has decided on a four per cent hike in residential taxes for 2011, but will hold the line for commercial and industrial taxpayers at zero per cent. The decision came at their Feb. 22 regular meeting, following presentations from citizens concerned about cuts to recreation services and from a budget focus group consisting of residential and business representatives. The four per cent increase means the owner of an average-valued $350,000 home will pay an extra $45 dollars in city taxes. March 2
SNOWMOBILERS CONCERNED ABOUT PROPOSED NEW CARIBOU CLOSURES Local snowmobile groups are worried that if proposed new snowmobile closures go ahead, it will become increasingly difficult enforce the closures designed to protect caribou habitat. “We are afraid that if these closures go ahead, that we will not have buy-in from the snowmobiling public and we fear that civil disobedience will become an issue,” said Angela Threatful, executive director of the Snowmobile Revelstoke Society. “People will no longer respect the boundaries based on the fact that we’ve already given so much up, we’ve worked hard, we’ve invested thousands upon thousand of dollars in environmental stewardship and, if it comes down to additional closures above and beyond that, I feel it will have a negative impact.” The new closures being proposed by the B.C. government include a complete closure of Caribou Basin and a greatly extended closure of Keystone Standard Basin.

FEDERAL ALL-CANDIDATE’S FORUM LACKS SPARK WITH FRONT RUNNER ABSENT It’s a good thing they called it a forum and not a debate – because there was little of the latter at the KootenayColumbia all-candidates forum in Revelstoke last Tuesday night. Three candidates attended the Apr. 12 forum – Mark Shmigelsky of the New Democratic Party, Bill Green of the Green Party and independent candidate Brent Bush. Missing were Liberal candidate Betty Aitchison (who did send in an introducing statement) and Conservative David Wilks, who is regarded as the favourite to win the riding. Thirty minutes after the national leader’s debate ended, the forum began, with about 50 people in attendance, many of whom were wearing NDP badges. Brydon Roe, president of the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce, acted as moderator. With Wilks absent – he said he already committed to be elsewhere when the invitation came – the forum lacked any The future looks optimistic in many fields sense of antagonism and there of medical research. wasn’t too much to separate For example, Multiple the three candidates.

“We believe at this point the vehicle was travelling too fast for the curves and as a result lost control and went into the left-hand side ditch,” said Cpl. Rod Wiebe of the Revelstoke RCMP.

La Nina thrills in the hills, but causes headaches at home How much snow was there in the 2010/11 season? Enough to cave-in the roof of a building at Downie Timber it seems. Fortunately, no one was in the building when it came down at around 3:30 p.m. on Mar. 2. “I’ve never seen anything like this,” said one employee. Several other buildings around town also succumbed to the snow load, including the Partners for Others charity warehouse in the Big Eddy. Alex Cooper/Times Review

RCMP RECLASSIFY DROWNING TO MURDER The RCMP are now classifying the August 2010 drowning of an Alberta schoolteacher at Shelter Bay as a homicide. Laura Letts-Beckett, a 50-yearold elementary schoolteacher from Westlock, Alberta, was in a boat
with her husband on Aug. 18, 2010. An August 19 report in the Revelstoke Times Review, which was based on information provided by the RCMP, said that Letts-Beckett was standing up in the Zodiac when she fell overboard. She was not wearing a lifejacket and it was reported she couldn’t swim. At the time, the RCMP reported her husband attempted to rescue her but was unable to.
RCMP Southeast District spokesperson Cpl. Dan Moskaluk confirmed the RCMP suspect foul play. “The death is being classified as a homicide,” he told the Times Review in a June 14 telephone interview. “[RCMP Southeast District Major Crime Unit] has been involved and continue to be involved in the investigation. It is an ongoing investigation. June 29

COUNCIL APPROVES NEW BIKE NETWORK

Avalanche season sparks TCH lobby
Revelstoke is set to get a series of bike paths and trails that will run through the city from Revelstoke Mountain Resort all the way out to Mt. Macpherson. The network will be made possible by $289,141 of tourism infrastructure funding that was recommended by the city’s Tourism Infrastrucuture Committee and approved by city council at their July 12 meeting. August 31
EXTENDED SMOKING BAN PROPOSED City council got their first chance to comment on the details of proposed new municipal smoking ban rules for Revelstoke at their Aug. 23 public meeting. Council unanimously adopted the first and second reading of the new bylaw at the meeting, opening up a public comment period as the bylaw moves towards final adoption. The proposed new ban was first recommended to council in September of 2010 by the city’s health advisory committee. Since then, city staff worked to develop the proposed bylaw that was presented today. The ban would extend existing bans to more public spaces. September 7
PT SIGN SPARKS PUBLIC PROTEST The City of Revelstoke has given the owner of the moveable letterboard sign located out front of the former P&T Farm Market until Sept. 9 to get rid of it or face legal action. The move sparked a protest by the sign’s owner, who on Aug. 29 took action. “City says sign bad must go,” he wrote on one side. “So much for free speech,” he posted on the other. Neighbouring business Jacobson Ford got into the action too: “Ford says sign good!! Please stay!!” Not missing a beat, on the other side they added: “Buy a car and speak your mind!” The sign has been a source of amusement to commuters who looked forward to the sign’s frequently-changing messages. When they started several months ago, they sought to entice potential clients into the vacant building on the lot. October 5
DEVELOPER SAYS LAWSUIT COULD COST CITY UP TO $14 MILLION A Revelstoke developer has filed a statement of claim against the City of Revelstoke, saying the city could be on the hook for damages up to about $14 million for allegedly failing to live up to an agreement regarding access across his property near Revelstoke Mountain Resort. The statement of claim was filed by the Selkirk Land and Cattle Corporation at the Kelowna registry of the Supreme Court of British Columbia on Sept. 28, 2011. The statement says in 2004 the plaintiff entered into an agreement with the city to allow access across its 106-acre parcel of land located up-slope of Camozzi Road in Arrow Heights near the Joe Kozek Sawmills. The city wanted access to build and service a water reservoir there. They say the city never lived up to the terms of the nominal-fee agreement to build a dedicated road, but instead built a dirt road across the property. The plaintiff says since then they have been struggling with successive city administrators to have the situation rectified, but have been rebuffed or largely ignored. October 5
AARON VOLPATTI MAKES VANCOUVER CANUCKS ROSTER Revelstoke native Aaron Volpatti secured a spot in the Vancouver Canucks starting lineup when the team opens the 2011-12 season at home against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday. Volpatti, 26, won the opportunity to skate on the right side on a line with centre Maxime Lapierre and left winger Viktor Oreskovich after a pre-season that saw him garner attention for his hard hits and willingness to drop the gloves.

A staggering number of days lost to avalanche road closures hit the Revelstoke tourism industry hard, and led to the revival of a longstanding effort to seek improvements to the Trans-Canada Highway. City of Revelstoke Mayor David Raven travelled to federal budget meetings in Ontario in the fall to make the case for improvements. Here, avalanche control at Three Valley Gap.

Instead, she decided to keep going to work on the Official Community Plan for Area B of the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District. Now, she has chosen to stand for a seventh term in order to deal with some outstanding issues and since no one ran against her, she will be sitting on the CSRD’s board of directors for another three years - 21 in total. “I’m really into it,” she told the Times Review last week after being officially acclaimed. “There’s so much to learn all the time.

INCUMBENTS ELECTED; TWO NEWCOMERS JOIN COUNCIL Despite an election campaign
2011 IN RE VIE W dominated by criticism of city hall’s spending problems, Revelstoke voters returned all four incumbent candidates to the council table in Saturday’s municipal election, according to the unofficial results. Tony Scarcella, Linda Nixon, Chris Johnston, Phil Welock, Gary Starling and Steve Bender

“However there are some real learnings within the platforms and concerns raised during the campaign that we’ll have to be very careful with and considerate of.” ***

B.C. seeking extension on HST debt BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press
VICTORIA – B.C. will likely get extra time to repay the $1.6 billion transition fund it accepted when it implemented the harmonized sales tax, federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says. “It’s clear the money has to
be repaid, and the government of British Columbia doesn’t question that,” Flaherty said at the end of a finance ministers’ meeting in Victoria Monday. “Their view is that they’d like more time to repay it. It’s due at the end of March 2012. I had very good discussions with [B.C.] Finance Minister [Kevin] Falcon about that, and I’m hope-
ful that we’ll be able to come to an agreement very soon, which would give the province some additional time to pay the total amount.” Falcon had little to say about the discussions. “We’ve always been clear that we are going to uphold our obligation under the agreement, and that’s to pay back the amount,”
Falcon said. “And what we’re talking to Jim about is the terms of the agreement. Those conversations continue and I’m not going to negotiate that in public.” After B.C. voters rejected the HST in a referendum last summer, Falcon and Premier Christy Clark have discussed the terms of paying the money back. Clark confirmed last week that she had asked federal officials to consider forgiving
some of the money because the HST will have been in effect for more than two years by the time it is repealed. The B.C. government has booked the repayment as a cost on its books for this year and next, pushing the provincial deficit up substantially. Falcon has committed to balancing the province’s budget by 2013, when the next B.C. election is scheduled.

The year in sports Times Review staff
The sports story of the year in Revelstoke was Aaron Volpatti’s NHL success. While he only potted two goals with the Vancouver Canucks, the Revelstoke native surprised many by making the team out of training camp this year and holding a spot until a shoulder injury sidelined him in December. The second biggest would be the epic snowfall, which had winter sports enthusiasts playing in the snow into July. In Revelstoke, the year started with Leah Evans and Lars Chickering-Ayers taking top spot at the Canadian Freeskiing Championships. Revelstoke athletes had lots of success on the snow. Nikki Norrie won two golds at the World Nordic Masters Championships in Vernon, while sisters Brittany and Megan Evans both reached the podium at the Canadian Nordic Skiing Championships in March (they also set RSS records on the track in June). Meanwhile, Callum Hicks took home a gold and bronze at the Western Canadian Alpine skiing championships. Meanwhile, the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club and Revelstoke Nordic
Ski Clubs both hosted the official opening of their new cabins. On two wheels, Olav Stana, 56, set a new record in the Mt. Revelstoke Steamer. 2011 also saw the opening of the incredibly alpine trail on Frisby Ridge, the Meltdown trail at Mt. Macpherson and the legalization and restoration of downhill trails on Boulder Mountain. RSS sports teams enjoyed success too. The senior girls soccer team won it’s zone, earning the right to host the Okanagan Valley Championships. The senior boys volleball team made it to the provincial championships. The Aquaducks posted its best ever result at the provincial swimming championships, finishing 22nd out of 63 teams. Emily Pfeiffer, Nadia Salon, Beth Granstrom and James Lebuke all won medals. The Grizzlies enjoyed another strong season in 2011, falling to the eventual league champions Osoyoos in the conference finals. The current squad is near the top of the league. In November, Revelstoke played host to the B.C. amateur boxing championships. Local Connor Null lost his bout but his contest was name the most exciting of the tournament.
