Mountain Roots Film Festival returns for second year ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

After a successul first year, the Mountain Roots Film Festival is back for a second year. Presented by the Friends of Mt. Revelstoke & Glacier, the film festival will showcase 13 films of varying lengths over the course of two days this weekend at the Roxy Theatre. “Being in our second year, we’re seeing more finished quality products from the filmmakers coming out,” said Neills Kristensen, the executive director of the Friends and organizer of the festival. Amongst some of the highlighs, Kristensen pointed out A World to Conserve, a film by Conor Hurley about the impact of Independent Power Projects on the Columbia River basin; and The Pipedreams Project, which is an exploration of the route of the controversial Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. He also noted some more fun entries such as Long Stories About Short Love and Railway Humour.. Like last year, there are several entries by local filmmakers, including Hurley, Heather Lea, Ewan Urquhart, Michelle Cole, Rob Buchanan, Francois Desrosiers and Adrian Kiernan. “We’re in our second year and the quality of the films are getting more vibrant and more ‘Wow’ fac-

tor, which is great,” said Kristensen. This year there will be three showings – 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. The awards gala and Best of the Fest will be on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. at the Roxy Theatre.

Swedish visitors spend the night in Montana Creek drainage The pair knew the area’s reputation for luring and trapping skiers, but they say they didn’t realize they had left the resort boundary while on their final run of the day AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Two Swedish visitors to Revelstoke are safe and healthy after spending the night stuck in the Montana Creek drainage area overnight between Feb. 4 and 5. Luckily, the temperatures didn’t drop too far below zero that night; other than the ski gear they were wearing and a lighter, the 24-yearolds weren’t prepared for the night out. The Times Review managed to get in touch with the long-time friends in order to find out what went wrong, and hopefully gain some insight into why they got lost. The pair didn’t want to use their real names, so we reluctantly agreed to change their names for this story after it became clear they wouldn’t do the interview us-

ing their real ones. I met them for an interview at the Modern Bake Shop and Cafe. Isabelle has lived here for over a year. Her lifelong friend Hanna was visiting for about six weeks. Isabelle said she knew that many people had got stuck in Montana Creek and she’s deeply embarrassed about the situation. “I am always wondering how is it possible,” was her reaction when she heard of others getting lost. “And then I end up there, and I feel really bad about this,” she said, burying her head in her hands. “We’re feeling really, really stupid putting people in that situation.” They were taking a last run down Fast Fred’s on Revelstoke Mountain Resort at about 2 p.m. The run zig-zags on the resort’s southern boundary. At one point, they entered a forested area, thinking they were further down the

run. They thought they were entering a gladed area bounded by trails; instead they were veering into the creek drainage. “And we didn’t even realize we were out of bounds,” Isabelle says. They insist they didn’t see any signs when they left the piste for the forest. However, they also insist the mistake was theirs; they should have paid more attention and knew where they were going. Isabelle grew up in a ski town in Sweden and has backcountry training and experience, but on Saturday they were just out for some in-bounds runs at the resort. They also say another skier headed into the area just before them, but they insist they weren’t following him. As Isabelle skied ahead, Hanna snowboarded behind, falling over frequently and then getting stuck in the deep snow. They say they lost track of time and distance because of the frequent falls. They estimate they were going downhill for about half an hour. Pretty soon, they realized something was wrong. They tried to cut back up the hill to get back to the in-bounds area. It took them

considerable time and energy to wade 50 metres back up through waist-deep snow. Realizing they’d never make it, they studied the area on Google Maps on the one cell phone they had. They figured they could ski out, so they called Isabelle’s sister who also lives in Revelstoke, and informed her of their plan before continuing down the mountain. Isabelle says one of their big concerns was not initiating a search; back home in Sweden, those not insured for rescue are handed a bill for many, many thousands of dollars for a rescue, she said. Soon it went from bad to worse. They got steered into a creek at the bottom of a ravine. The creek was covered with snow, branches and logs, so it was impossible to tell if they were about to fall through the ice, and they worried about injuring themselves. They tried to update Isabelle’s sister, but by then they were out of the cell service area. And their battery was dying, so they decided to turn it off for the night. It was getting dark (remarkably

fast, notes Isabelle) so they improvised a shelter out of branches and lit a fire. By morning, their sister had already called authorities, who mounted a search. Their friends were driving around, looking for them on Airport Way, and their parents worried back home in Sweden. It took a Revelstoke Search and Rescue team aboard a helicopter to lift them out one-byone with a rope by around noon. Early morning fog delayed the rescue after they were first contacted a couple of hours before that. “We were so happy to see them,” Hanna says. “They were so kind to us ... they gave us tea and granola bars and warm gloves.” “I dont know how we could lose direction like that,” Isabelle says. She told me the Revelstoke RCMP were due for an exit interview, but hadn’t yet visited her. She even said she was expecting to have to return home to work in order pay off the bill. They seemed surprised when I told them they likely wouldn’t be billed for the incident.

MLA wants your input on spring session issues

MLA REPORT

BY NORM MACDONALD Hearing from you is a very important part of my job The Spring session of the British Columbia legislature begins soon and will continue through until summer. The ses-

sion will focus on the provincial economy as we debate the provincial budget. I will participate in what is called ‘estimates debate’ where as critic for Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations I will question the Minister on each line of the proposed provincial budget for forestry. As an MLA, it is my responsibility to represent you in Victoria. I will bring to each debate the economic, social and environmental perspectives of our area. My office receives contact from thousands of local residents annually, whether through a phone call, private

OP INION meeting, email or by signing a petition. You have told me that you want steps taken to strengthen our democratic rights. You want fairness and social justice. And you want a provincial government that will properly manage our public lands and our public assets in the best interest of British Columbians. Hearing from you is a very important part of my job; a job I can’t do without your input. As an Opposition MLA, I also have an obligation to scrutinize government and hold

them to account. If government takes an action that is illconsidered or does not benefit the public, it is my job to speak out against that action. For instance, the Premier’s so-called job plan has been promoted by an advertising campaign that cost more than $1 million. It was your tax dollars that paid that bill, but has it actually resulted in more jobs? And the campaign to promote the HST cost taxpayers even more. Whether it was the constant TV ads or the costly full-colour pamphlet that was printed but never mailed, mil-

lions and millions of taxpayers’ dollars were wasted try to convince you to change your mind. Clearly, British Columbians deserve better. We live in one of the most beautiful and prosperous places in the world but we must actively work to ensure that average British Columbians are the ones who receive the benefit from that prosperity. *** Norm Macdonald is the MLA (NDP) for Columbia River Revelstoke.

Capsule Comments With John Teed February is Heart Month, a good time to familiarize ourselves with the warning signs of a heart attack. Many Canadians die from heart attacks each year because they don’t receive medical attention quickly enough. The symptoms can include: sudden discomfort that doesn’t go away; pain in the chest, neck, jaw, shoulder, arms or back; pain that feels

like burning, squeezing, heaviness, tightness or pressure; chest pain or discomfort brought on with exertion and goes away with rest. Other warning signs may be difficulty breathing, nausea, sweating and anxiety. Don’t take a chance with your life. Call 911. If you are experiencing symptoms like those listed above, stop all activity and sit or lie down in

a comfortable position. If you are experiencing chest pain, chew and swallow one ASA 325mg tablet (or two 80mg tablets). Note that other pain pills like ibuprofen or acetaminophen will not help in this situation. Cardio -pulmonar y resuscitation (CPR) can save lives. It’s easy to learn and you never know when you might have to use it. There are always community

courses available to teach people how to do CPR. If you haven’t already taken one, do so soon. It takes only a couple of hours and you could save a life. It’s important to be an advocate for your own health. Be an active learner about health matters especially about the drugs you take. We can help you with this information.

With negotiations stalled after 11 months of fruitless meetings and five months of strike action, the bargaining agent for B.C. school districts has concluded there is no chance for a negotiated settlement with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association presented its latest offer as talks with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation resumed this week. BCPSEA issued a statement listing new proposals for teacher leave and a two-year contract term, but expectations of progress on major issues have disappeared. “The parties are scheduled to meet in bargaining for a full

day again,” the statement says. “It has become evident, however, that any number of presentations, explanations or meetings will not help the parties reach a new agreement.” BCTF president Susan Lambert described the latest employer proposal as “baby steps”

toward a settlement. BCPSEA was more pessimistic than that. When the latest offer was tabled Wednesday, the union’s response at the bargaining table continued the BCTF’s rejection of the government’s twoyear “net zero” mandate on wages. BCPSEA says a union

representative also emphasized “characterization of all BCPSEA proposals as ‘contract stripping’” and “the need to ‘go back to your master’ and get a new mandate (in all areas of our package).” Education Minister George Abbott has repeatedly said there will be no new mandate, but declined to put a deadline on the talks, which will reach the one-year mark in March. A five-year contract with the BCTF, the first ever negotiated with the province, expired in June 2011. Teachers began the school year last September by refusing report cards, recess and lunch hour supervision and other duties deemed nonessential.

Skier dies in avalanche near Kaslo ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

One man is dead after being caught in an avalanche on Meadow Mountain near Kaslo, B.C. Friday morning. The victim was with a group of 10 skiers and two guides when the avalanche occurred on Feb. 3 at around 11 a.m., according to a press release from Selkirk Wilderness Skiing, the

cat-skiing operation who the group was skiing with. The group was skiing one at a time down the run when the second guest triggered the avalanche, according to SWS. He was located and dug out of the snow by the guides but attempts to revive him with CPR were unsuccessful. The victim was airlifted to a hospital in Nelson, B.C. No other skiers were caught in the

avalanche and they were taken back to the lodge. The RCMP is investigating the incident. The victim’s identity has not been released, pending notification of next of kin. Keith Davis, a spokesperson for SWS, said the avalanche occurred at an elevation at about 2,500 metres. Neither SWS nor the RCMP had details about the avalanche’s size.

The Canadian Avalanche Centre rated the avalanche danger for the area as considerable in the alpine and moderate at treeline and below treeline. This is the second avalanche death at a commercial backcountry skiing operation in B.C. this winter. On Dec. 30, 2011, Ronald Gregory Sheardown was killed by an avalanche while heli-skiing with CMH Revelstoke.

Forest critic Macdonald says government is drastically underestimating amount of inadequately restocked land

Home Accents

Says report in progress shows that beetle kill, wildfires, disease and pests have left massive areas inadequately restocked, calls for increases to budgets, silviculture

AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The NDP Opposition critic for Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations says preliminary findings in an ongoing Forest Practices Board report shows the government is drastically understating the amount of “not satisfactorily restocked� (NSR) forest in B.C. Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald stopped by the Times Review office last week on his way to the Western Silvicultural Contractors’ Association annual conference in Kamloops. Macdonald was anticipating a presentation on an ongoing investigation into the issue of reforestation. The investigation is being conducted by Marvin Eng, a special investigations manager with the B.C. Forest Practices Board. In the interview, Macdonald anticipated the report would show the forests ministry was drastically understating the amount of NSR forests. In a media release following the presentation, Macdonald said his suspicions were confirmed by Eng’s presentation at the conference. Macdonald claims Eng’s report backed earlier studies showing the actual area

Columbia River - Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald.

of NSR land was 2.3 million hectares, and as much as 9.1 million hectares if fire, pest or disease ravaged forests were accounted. Macdonald said former forest minister Pat Bell’s estimate of 240,000 hectares of NSR land was less than 10 per cent of the actual figure. “Compounding the problem is the fact that we just don’t know the full extent of the problem,� said Macdonald. “Even Mr. Eng acknowledged that his figures were based on old data. This government made massive cuts to the forest service, which has left the service unable to paint a true picture of what’s actually happening on the forest floor.� Macdondald said the prov-

ince spent $22.25 million annual during the 1990s on programs exploring forest inventory, but that number had dropped to $7.5 million in the latest budget. “The Liberal government has utterly abandoned B.C.’s forests. Tree planting and silviculture work has been reduced even after cutting increased and at a time when fire and pests like the beetle are already taking their toll on the forests. “Healthy forests – most of which are owned by the people of British Columbia – are vital to the environment and are the infrastructure on which the forest industry is based. It’s unconscionable that the Liberals have treated this trillion-dollar resource so poorly.� Macdonald also attacked a forest ministry plan announced Jan. 27 that would allow partners to gain carbon credits by participating in a program to reforest areas lost to wildfires or beetle kill. The plan excludes harvested forest. The Crown-owned Pacific Carbon Trust has allocated purchases of up to 100,000 tonnes of carbon credits in an request for proposals this year. The forests ministry is hoping to replant between 500 and 2,000 hectares this

season, and wants to increase it to up to 10,000 hectares annually by 2015. Macdonald said the scope of the program was inadequate given the overall area of NSR forests in B.C. “When you’re talking about figures of one-thousand or ten-thousand hectares, good, you’re replanting, but you’re not actually dealing with the problem, not really,� he told the Times Review. Madonald also said the carbon credits model operated by the Pacific Carbon Trust was flawed. “It’ll be interesting to see the details,� he said. Macdonald said an NDP government had committed $100 million for the forest health portfolio during the last election. “As we move on to the next platform ... It’s going to have to be revisited,� Macdonald said, adding their new promises would be laid out by party leader Adrian Dix. Macdonald said that it will be up to the public to champion the issue of forest health management in general and reforestation in particular. “I think certainly in rural areas, people are there,� he said.

Some tough questions for Revelstoke Top Bloke contenders Former Revelstoke Times Review reporter Melissa Jameson gets the inside scoop on the 2012 contenders. Answer the question, bloke, and don’t touch the notepad if you know what’s good for you. MELISSA JAMESON Special to the Revelstoke Times Review

I’m fairly certain that when Times Review editor Aaron Orlando decided to assign me the task of Top Bloke speed dating the rest of the newsroom burst into fits of laughter. If you’ve ever heard my dating stories – among them the time I tried to out-maneuver a cab driver upon discovering my Internet date forgot to put in his dentures – you’ve probably had to stop reading this because you’re laughing too much. Stop laughing! This is serious business. OK, not really. It was a good bit of fun. In case you weren’t at the Last Drop on Friday night, here’s a glimpse of how my speed dates went.

MJ: Have you ever faked an accent on the ski hill to try and pick up? Steve: Yeah, of course, every one does it. If you wanna look really bad ass you’ve got to pretend you’re an Aussie. You say (in a Check out the fake Australian now) Top Blokes accent ‘Hey, how are Scan for 15 pics you today?’ of Spirit Fest 2012 MJ: Does it Top Bloke speed ever work? Steve: No, it dating never does.

ANTHONY MJ: What’s the most famous Revelstoke location you’ve ever picked

Is the fact that I’m taking notes disarming? Making you nervous? Revelstoke Spirit Fest 2011 Top Bloke Jacob Hanson attempts to defend his title in 2012 competition. Here, Melissa Jameson puts the contenders through their paces during the speed dating round at the Last Drop on Feb. 3. The finals are on Feb. 10 starting at 8 p.m. at the Last Drop. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

your nose? Anthony: Uh, no comment MJ: Well, if you were going to pick your nose at a famous Revelstoke location where would it be? Anthony: I’m not the gold digger type. I make my own money.

FLETCH (I think I heard this bloke’s name is Chris, but his name tag says Fletch.) MJ: There are some people who de-

scribe men as dogs. What dog-like traits do you have? Fletch: Why don’t I turn it around on you and ask why are women dogs? (Yikes! Apparently my test subjects had a sense of humour. They thought this question was hilarious. MJ: I’m being sarcastic. Dog like traits. Dogs can be affectionate, dogs can be loyal. see page 7

Which one of these gents will emerge as Revelstoke Top Bloke 2012?

Columbia Shuswap Regional District NOTICE OF PARCEL TAX ROLL

from page 6 Fletch: Well ... I think we go for more than we can handle, we go for the most attractive in the crowd.

DEVIN MJ: Tell me a Revelstoke themed pick-up line. Devin: I can’t think of one .... ‘Hi.’ MJ: What? No, a pick up line. Devin: Hi. Honestly, it works every time.

DAVE MJ: Who do you think got more action, Major Rogers or Judge Begbie? Dave: Who are they, television people? (Sadly, Dave is not the only Revelstokian who has no idea who Major Rogers or Judge Begbie are.)

RYAN MJ: What romantic Revelstoke location would you take me on a date? Ryan: I would take you to Mount Mackenzie, there’s a well-built snow hut and you can sit and look through the opening. Then we’d catch a limo to the local hot springs. Then we’d head back to Revy to the Aquatic Centre and do 10 laps on the slide. (Ryan is so enthusiastic about this date that I don’t have the heart to tell him I don’t alpine ski.)

JACOB

(last year’s winner)

MJ: What made you decide to take part in top bloke again? Jacob: I just wanted to support Emma, and my buddies Steve and Ryan are taking part. It’s a good cause and it’s good fun.

Forget Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show – the Top Bloke contestants had the best choreography going this past weekend. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

(Jacob, apparently likes to play safe.)

DEVON MJ: Are you taking part in top bloke as a way to meet people? Devon: Yes, I’ve been in town since Monday. I know three people in town. MJ: Where are you from? Devon: New Zealand. (Well, Top Bloke probably beats online dating. Good luck, Devon.)

NICK (By this point it’s fairly obvious that I’m writing down everything the blokes are saying. Plus Alex Cooper just took a photo of my last speed date). Nick: Put your notebook away, c’mon don’t be a reporter put your notebook away.

(Nick tries to grab my notebook. Bad move, Nick.) MJ: Besides Sharon Shook, what Revelstoke celebrity would you want to date? Nick: What? Who’s Sharon Shook? MJ: Never mind, what celebrity would you date? Nick: I don’t know.

MARK Speed dating was a little crazy, and if you know me well enough you’ll know I don’t know my left from my right. So the concept of going counter clockwise around the room was beyond me. Somehow in the mix I never got my 60 second date with Mark. I did however, manage to capture Mark attempting to pose for his mug shot.

It is important that we register all children during the week of February 20th, 2012 to February 24th, 2012. Information regarding Kindergarten programming is available on the Ministry of Education website at http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/early_learning/fdk/. Registration Details: • • •

Registration times are from 8:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. No early registrations will be taken. Registrations will be dated and timed, and may determine eligibility to attend a specific school.

Please bring: • • •

Vertical for the disabled Greg Hill (right) skied 38 laps of the Stoke Chair and two more of the gondola at Revelstoke Mountain Resort to help raise money for the Davis Boyd Memorial Foundation. He did the runs as part of the vertical challenge put on during the International Fellowship of Skiing Rotarians visit to Revelstoke last week. A number of events throughout the week helped raise money for the foundation, which raises money to support adaptive skiing programs at the hills the IFSR visits. Jim Tomlin (left), the president of the foundation, said he hopes the money raised will go to start up an adaptive ski program at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, though he added it would up to the local Rotary club to decide what to do with the funds. Right now the closest adaptive skiing program to Revelstoke is at Silver Star, near Vernon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully the mountain can develop something,â&#x20AC;? said Tomlin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think the mountain, as it grows, will attract adaptive skiers.â&#x20AC;? Tomlin told stories about skiing with blind people and wounded veterans. For Hill, he was inspired by the work of the Live It! Love It! Foundation, which provides adaptive sports opportunities for disabled people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even imagine how hard it would be, he said.

Sister Girl debuts second CD Revelstoke country roots band teams up with David Essig to record and produce new album Amazing Things Happen

REVELSTOKE CONNECTION

Assistant Operations Manager

AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Revelstoke music fans have an opportunity to support local folk roots band Sister Girl at the release party for their new CD Amazing Things Happen at the Big Eddy Pub this Thursday, Feb. 9. “We’re really proud of the album,” said Sister Girl’s Stephanie Ballendine, who plays vocals, keyboard, harmonica, banjo and guitar. The title track for the album has been in the band’s set list for some time, but they’d never recorded it, feeling it needed development before it was ready. Co-written by Stacey and Janine Carey Bourke (vocals, bass guitar, piano), the song Amazing Things Happen features the band’s signature harmonies and melodic piano. Amazing Things Happen was recorded at Amble Inn Bed & Breakfast in Revelstoke and mixed by Salmon Arm producer Jesse Clarke of Earthtone Studios. “I was very grateful,” said Janine of the chance to play the white-coloured Cana-

ine put it together. “That’s my forte, I’m always coming up with musical licks or riffs,” said Janine. “By the time we sat down together it only took about 10 minutes for the song to come together.” The majority of the album was

recorded in a week-long session in October at Watershed Studio on Protection Island near Nanaimo. Vocalist Joanne Stacey says their recording session with producer and folk artist David Essig brought the album a polished sound with a more

objective direction than their selftitled debut CD. Their first album was recorded and self-produced by the band in a short session that lasted only a few days. Combined with their live performances, it helped earn the band notable successes.

They were a Top 10 Canadian finalist in the 2009 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest for the song Lonesome Rambler. They’ve also had radio airplay worldwide, including a top-10 spot on Austrian country charts. (European country music fans have a preference for more traditional country sounds of bands like Sister Girl.) Each of the five musicians has expanded their musical repertoire since their first album, adding new instruments including banjo and mandolin to their quiver. Joanne Stacey brings a lifetime of experience in the music business to the table, including a solo career. She’s behind much of the band’s marketing. She has a keen understanding of how things like radio play work. The show at the Big Eddy Pub starts their efforts to tour the album; they hope to perform at a few festivals this summer and also plan to record their first ever video. For now, they’re all committed to full-time jobs in Revelstoke, and will continue to fit their music career in between day jobs. The album Amazing Things Happen and tickets for the Thursday show are available at Sangha Bean and Amble Inn in Revelstoke. The show at the Big Eddy Pub is on Thursday, Feb. 9 starting at 8 p.m. There’ll be door prizes and Sister Girl trivia at the Revelstoke Spirit Fest event. For more, see sistergirlmusic.com.

Grizzlies take over conference lead Times Review staff

The Revelstoke Grizzlies passed the Kamloops Storm for top spot in the division and conference after winning all three games last week, including a key victory Saturday night over the Storm in Kamloops. The Grizzlies started off the week last Wednesday with a 7-2 win over the Chase Heat. Braden Monk and Austin Donaldson both had two goals and an assist in the win, while Revelstokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brodie Buhler, playing in place of an injured forward, scored his first ever KIJHL goal. Riley Spraggs and Cole Sanford also scored for Revelstoke in the win. The big game of the week was Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tilt in Kamloops against the Storm. After the Storm lost in overtime the night before, Revelstoke went into the game only three points back of first. The game was a spirited affair, with Revelstoke emerging from the first period with a 3-2 lead thanks to goals from Marc Letourneau, Cole Sanford and Monk. Revelstoke added to its lead in the second, getting goals from Carson Bolduc and Riley Spraggs. The teams traded goals in the third, leaving

The job growth will continue, with a projected 57,000 technology jobs opening by 2019, and an annual growth rate of 2.2%. British Columbia attracts global technology leaders, including Pixar, Disney, Boeing, MDA, Microsoft, Sierra Wireless, SAP, Dolby Canada, and Intel. These major technology companies look for a stable economy with a supply of experienced employees and a supportive government. British Columbia has both. It helps that the University of British Columbia is rated No. 1 in terms of technology licensing, an indicator of a high level of success and a culture that nurtures innovation. A healthy high-tech sector also attracts investors who are impressed by the industry’s performance. Revenues have more than tripled in the decade leading up to 2007, and were up another 4.4% by 2009, to $18.9 billion. Currently, investors receive a 30% refundable tax credit, supporting up to $100 million in investment every year. The provincial government, seeing the role they can play in this fast growing sector, will increase the value of this program by $3 million, allowing more individuals known as ‘angel investors’ to put their own capital directly into eligible small business, and to offer strategic expertise.B.C. firms attracted more than 19% of Canada’s venture capital investments in 2010, with B.C. the top province in life sciences venture capital investments. High technology wears many hats. The BC Cancer Agency is a world leader in cancer research, and B.C. is North America’s third-largest centre for film and TV production, averaging $1.2 billion in spending per year, 80% of which is foreign money. The global entertainment and media industry is expected to grow by five per cent a year to 2014, when it will hit $1.7 trillion. B.C. is well positioned to take advantage of this growth. The high-technology industry is not an island. This sector supports B.C.’s entire economy by helping other industries become more innovative, productive and globally competitive. Digital media and interactive gaming technologies are being used in education, agriculture, mining and health care. If you have a gamer in the family, and these days anyone with children qualifies, this Interior South Company will be of great interest. The brainchild of Rob Bartlett, an internet entrepreneur and gamer who launched the company in December 2009, WTFast, also known as LagKiller, speeds up massively multiplayer

online games such as World of Warcraft by 60 to 90 per cent. Within minutes users can create an account, download their software and immediately play their game. WTFast has 110,000 users across the world, including in Australia, South Africa, Germany, Thailand and South America. There are other applications beyond the gaming community. Proprietors of internet cafes and restaurants can benefit from WTFast’s advanced subscription for internet providers. Because the game data is shaped to travel at the fastest possible speed, internet service is sped up. WTFast was the overall winner of Accelerate Okanagan’s inaugural Jump:Start Challenge in November 2011. The company received $10,000 in prizes, including free enrolment for one year in Accelerate Okanagan’s Venture Acceleration Program, which helps high potential technology companies accelerate their growth; as well as one year free office space at Accelerate Okanagan’s Kelowna or Penticton innovation centres, a valuable leg-up for a young company. Other impacts are more global. With an estimated 5.3 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide – India and China added 300 million subscribers in 2010 alone – the demand for digital, wireless and screen-based entertainment is immense. These two countries, India and China, are undergoing mass movements to urbanization, which also gives B.C. opportunities to offer them clean, efficient energy, waste reduction and health-care solutions. B.C. is perfectly aligned to supply a healthy portion of this demand in the coming years. Airplane sales around the world are expected to reach $US3.6 trillion over the next 20 years to replace aging planes and expand fleets, providing opportunities for our advanced manufacturing sector. Plus, as a climate change leader, we are at the forefront of renewable energy technology development. Finding new markets for our solar, wind, biomass and other technologies can help turn B.C. into a cleantech powerhouse. As Canada’s Pacific Gateway, B.C. is strategically located to reach growing global markets. In addition, B.C. is close to technology and entertainment hubs in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and Seattle. Under the BC Jobs Plan, the provincial government will work with the federal government to meet our workforce needs and expedite the immigration process for researchers and scientists in other parts of the world who want to bring their expertise to British Columbia. B.C.’s fast-tracked immigration process through the Provincial Nominee Program encourages firms to locate in B.C. so they can hire experienced business immigrants. The B.C. government’s focus on this sector, identified as one of the eight key sectors with the greatest opportunity to bring new dollars into our economy from our most important trading partners, helps nurture an industry that has immense potential to accelerate growth throughout the province.

Two time Olympian to share advice at Nordic club’s Team Scream relay ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

When the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club hosts its annual Team Scream Relay this Saturday, there will be a special guest in attendance – 10-year Canadian national team member and two time Olympian George Grey. Grey will be in town on Feb. 11 and 12 to provide cross-country ski coaching and advice. He will also make a multi-media presentation called Good to Great at the community centre on Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. The Times Review touched based with Grey to see what kind of wisdom he would be providing. What brings you to Revelstoke? I know the ski club there has some good up and coming skiers and a lot of potential. As I came up through the system as a B.C. athlete, there wasn’t often a lot of opportunity to be around national team or Olympic athletes because cross-country skiing wasn’t at that level in Canada until the past decade. I just thought that it would be great if I could get out to some of these clubs and offer some of the knowledge I’ve come across in my past 10 years on the national team. What got you into cross-country skiing and how did you become a competitive skier? ... My dad is an avid sportsman and he put me in various sports and cross-country skiing was one of them. It seemed to be natural for me. It was one of the sports I excelled at. At a younger age, when you do well at something you enjoy it. It just went further and further. We had a national team athlete visit our club and he stayed with my parents and myself. Just to see this athlete and what he’s done and become, it was very memorable for me. I just kept on going and pursued the Olympic dream, like a lot of kids do, and it came true. What advice do you have for skiers looking to pursue competitive racing? A big thing is patience. You

George Grey races at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. NordicFocus

don’t always come up with the results that you want. I also say that it’s the process and not the outcome. If you’re doing everything right and working on things on a daily basis, it doesn’t matter if you come 10th or 15th in a race because you keep working and it does pay off down the road... Was that the case with you? I was never winning things right off the bat... I just slowly chipped away at it, got a little better, some people lost their focus and got a little worse and soon enough I was on the B.C. development team, chosen for the B.C. team, and made it to two junior World Championships. It doesn’t happen overnight. I was never one of the winningest children out there. What does it take to become an Olympic level athlete? It takes a mentally tough person. You’re not necessarily born that way. It’s something you build upon because there are a lot of tough times, a lot of things go

wrong, a lot of injuries and you have to persevere through those and believe in yourself and know you will get better and you will get stronger. My dad always told me tough times don’t last but tough people do, so I sort of live by that. He also taught me it’s the process, not the outcome and eventually that leads you to greatness. You can’t make the jump when you’re 13 or 16, you can’t just say, ‘I’m going to go to the Olympics.’ You have to chip away at it and focus on little things.... You can’t expect to be 18 or even 25 and make an Olympic team. It could take some time. It’s just not being dissuaded by tough times and challenges that are put in front of you. Visit www.revelstokenordic. org for a complete schedule of Grey’s visit. Visit www.revelstoketimesreview.com for the complete transcript of our interview with Grey.

FIS racers show success at Apex speed camp and races Times Review staff

Revelstoke FIS racers placed consistently in the top-30 at the third race in the Miele Cup series at Apex Mountain near Penticton last week, not long after attending a speed camp there the previous weekend. The speed camp took place from Jan. 29-31. There, the Revelstoke FIS team got lessons in downhill and super-G from former national team members Kerrin Lee-Gartner, Rob Boyd and coach Don Lyon. “It was a great introduction to speed training and it felt great to be skiing fast again,” said Lachlan Hicks, who is a rookie on the FIS team. A day after the speed camp,

the team raced in the Miele Cup event against some of the top young skiers from B.C., Alberta and the US – including one fresh of a World Cup race in Europe. The competition featured two days of super-G races and two days of giant slalom (GS). On the girls’s side, Emily Unterberger finished 14th and 23rd in the super-G and 19th in the GS; Noemi Petit finished 30th in the super-G; Jamie Park had a 19th place finish in one super-G race and was 21st in the GS; and Alix Petit was 13th in the superG and 21st in the GS. “It was a fun week and I look forward to going back next year,” said Unterberger. On the boys side, Lachlan Hicks finished 17th in the super-

G and 18th and 13th in the GS; Peter Behncke recorded a 26th in the super-G and 19th in the GS; Cole Smith finished 24th in the super-G; and Dominic Unterberger finished 25th in the superG. “This week was great,” said Behncke. “It felt amazing to feel the speed again. It was a great experience for all.” Team coach Milan Arsovoski said he was proud of the progress and results the team showed from the camp and races. “It was lots of fun and a great experience to see them skiing next to Canada’s alumni ski champions,” he said. “The team morale is high and I hope we will have more good results in the near future.”

August 15, 1926 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; January 21, 2012 Helen was born at Mt. Cartier near Revelstoke BC to John and Stella Ozero (nee Soberlac.) She came to Vancouver as a young woman in the 1940â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joining her cousin Anne Skrypnyk and working at Kelly Douglas. Helen always enjoyed dancing and going out with friends. She married Douglas Payie in 1955 and sadly was widowed in 1962.

Rory was born in Port Alberni, BC where he worked as an engineer in the logging industry. In 1993, he moved his family to Revelstoke, BC where he continued to work in forestry until a knee injury forced him to re-train as an electrician. Working as an electrician in Victoria and throughout the province, Rory made many friends. He was friendly, kind-hearted, and tremendously generous. He loved spending time in the outdoors and there was nothing he wouldn't do for his children and grandchildren. Rory was predeceased by his father Archie McGillivray. He is survived by his three children: Heather (Dave) Manson of Revelstoke, Evan McGillivray and Darrell McGillivray of Kamloops; his three grandchildren Axel, Ari, and Seyja; his mother Elsie McGillivray of Port Alberni; his brothers Chris (Barbara) McGillivray of Fort Saskatchewan Alberta, Mark (Carol) McGillivray of Palmerston North New Zealand; his sisters Gaylene (Dave) Mawhinney of Pace, Florida, Bonnie (Ian) Hall of Campbell River BC, and Myrna (Rick) Driscoll of Sackville, New Brunswick; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
