Developers, unions/labour outspend residents in Revelstoke municipal elections AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Revelstoke residents weren’t as willing to haul out their chequebooks for local mayor, city council or school board elections as other stakeholders in our community. Developers and union interests outspent everyday residents in the Nov. 19 municipal election. The largest single donation was

$1,600 from the B.C. Nurses’ Union. The Big Bend Development Corporation (the proponent behind the Revelstoke Crossing development) also backed two unsuccessful candidates with a total of $1,000 in contributions. The biggest spenders by far were the candidates themselves. Many were the sole contributors to their campaigns. Here is a summary of Revelstoke municipal election

expense reports filed by the Mar. 19 deadSteve Bender (elected) spent $1,086 and line. received no contributions. Notes: Figures are rounded to the nearest Rick Hodgson spend $0 and received no dollar. Discrepancies between total spending contrubutions. and contributions is assumed to be covered Chris Johnston (elected) spent $556 and by the candidates. received one anonymous contribution of Mayor: $50. Sole mayoral candidate Mayor David RaLinda Nixon (elected) spent $1,708 ven spent $1,318 and had no contributions. Elections, next page City Council:

Regional voices added to chorus opposing Fisheries Act changes ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

MLA Norm Macdonald and Wildsight executive director John Bergenske are amongst a chorus of opposition to Conservative government plans to gut parts of the federal Fisheries Act. Last week, a retired federal fisheries biologist leaked federal documents that purport to show proposed changes to the act that would water down existing legislation. Existing Fisheries Act legislation prohibits any activity that could harm fish habitat. The documents show plans to replace Elections, from page 2 and received contributions totalling $1,720. Nixon received a contribution of $1,600 from the B.C. Nurses’ Union and $100 from Ruby Cameron. James Ritchie spent $256 and received no contributions. Jason Roe spent $1,707 and recieved $1,712 in contributions. Roe received $623 from Black Tie Properties, $400 from the Big Bend Development Corporation,

that with a lesser restriction prohibiting “adverse effects” on fish of “economic, cultural or ecological value.” Critics are also concerned with a possible move to shift enforcement responsibility to the provinces. Last week, 625 scientists signed a letter opposing the changes. They included some of the most eminent scientists in Canada. “Habitat destruction is the most common reason for species decline. All ecologists and fisheries scientists around the world agree on these fundamental points, and the Fisheries Act

has been essential to protecting fish habitats and the fisheries they support in Canada. Weakening habitat protections will make Canada look irresponsible internationally,” they wrote. “In the case of fisheries, siltation of spawning beds and contamination of fish rearing areas are two of the most common impacts of human activities. We should therefore be strengthening, not weakening the habitat protection provisions of the Fisheries Act (and other environmental laws, including the Species at Risk Act and the Migratory Birds Convention Act), in order to protect our dwindling fisheries and species

at risk.” Columbia River – Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald said that any move to shift responsibility to provincial authorities would be a mistake. He said B.C. environmental assessments are “weak,” inadequate and lack effective enforcement. “To lose the federal environmental rules is really hugely problematic,” Macdonald said. “It means that it’s open season and the results are predictable when you go down this path. It is a conscious decision to degrade the environment and we that live in these areas and have an attachment to the land [and] de-

pend on it for all sorts of things [and] bear the consequences of those conscious decisions.” He gave the example of the GlacierHowser independent power project near Kaslo, saying federal legislation eventually stalled the project. Macdonald believes it would have gone ahead if left only to a B.C. environmental assessment. BC Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko (NDP) also joined the chorus of opponents. “In the current climate of the Enbridge pipeline, increased mining proposals and private power projects

No serious injuries after truck crashes into police vehicle ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

Two people were taken to hospital for precautionary measures after a truck crashed into an RCMP vehicle at the intersection of Victoria Road and the TransCanada Highway in Revelstoke on Friday. Two RCMP officers were on their way to a domestic incident in Columbia Park at around 5:30 p.m. on Mar. 23 when the accident occurred, said RCMP Staff Sgt. Jacquie Olsen. The RCMP vehicles were crossing the Trans-Canada

against a red light when the second vehicle, was hit by an eastbound red Dodge Ram 1500. “I stopped, they didn’t,” a witness told the Times Review. He said the police had their lights on when they crossed the intersection. Another RCMP officer came to the scene while one of the first two continued to the domestic call. Fire Rescue Services and BC Ambulance also attended. The driver-side door of the police SUV was heavily dented and the window was shattered. The shattered glass lay in the intersection until

it was swept away, though reader reports indicate glass remained in the intersection afterwards. The Dodge truck had damage to the front-end. Paramedics tended to the driver of the truck and placed him in an ambulance. The RCMP officer who was hit was also taken to hospital. Olsen said there didn’t appear to be any serious injuries but they were taken to the hospital to be re-assessed. She added that an investigator from the Southeast District RCMP would be called in to investigate the crash. The Revelstoke RCMP are out one SUV after it was damaged in a crash last Friday.

It’s revealing to put a number on the heart benefits of exercising. There was a “study of studies” done recently on the amount of exercise needed to benefit the heart. That number is 150 minutes per week. This resulted in a 15% reduction in heart attacks. Couch potatoes who started to exercise benefitted most. It’s important to check with your doctor before starting an exercise program.

Breastfeeding a newborn infant has many positive effects on the baby and the mother. One new idea being investigated is that breastfed babies have less of a chance of becoming obese. The link between obesity and breastfeeding isn’t totally proven but it may be another incentive to breastfeed for at least 6 months. Nine out of ten foot operations are performed

on women. The cause of the foot problems is primarily the type of shoes women wear. These foot problems include bunions, hammertoes and neuromas (swelling of a foot nerve due to tight-fitting shoes). Sometimes, just changing to a roomier shoe will relieve the discomfort. It may be hard to choose between comfort and style but your feet will be happy. Our

Community mourns passing of David Johnson ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

About 150 people came out to remember David Johnson at his funeral last Friday at St. Peter’s Anglican Church. He was remembered as a great father and grandfather, as someone who obsessed with numbers – from the steps he took to trains passing through town to the daily temperature – and as someone always ready to give back. The community of Revelstoke was sent reeling after news of David Johnson’s death last Sunday, Mar. 18. “It was very sudden and very shocking,” said Cathleen Busch, a Deacon at St. Peter’s Anglican Church where Johnson was a very active member. “We feel so bad for Edna Mae and the family to have to deal with that. We’re reeling from it ourselves here.” Johnson, 67, was heavily involved in the Revelstoke community. He and his wife Edna Mae owned the Minto Manor where they hosted many performances; he was the chairman of the Revelstoke Community Energy Corporation and he was president of the Revelstoke Heritage Railway Society. He and his wife were also active supporters of the arts. “It’s a tremendous loss and as far as we’re concerned here, we’ve lost a man who had a great deal of dedication

and a great deal of vision,” said Jennifer Dunkerson, the executive director of the Revelstoke Railway Museum. “He was a pillar for us, somebody who was very dedicated to this place and put his all into it. He’ll be very greatly missed.” Busch said she was getting ready for church on Sunday morning when the call came that Johnson collapsed and was being tended to by paramedics. Johnson was scheduled to lead the service that day. “He was very reverant when he was leading a service,” Busch said. “He was definitely a role model. If we could all strive to be half as good as David, we’d be doing well.” David and Edna Mae Johnson moved to Revelstoke nine years ago following his retirement from Vanier College in Montreal. He obtained a PhD from Simon Fraser University before starting his career in academia as a chemistry teacher at Vanier College in 1974. He eventually became the Academic Dean of the college in 1993 and held that post until his retirement in 2000. He stayed on at the college for another two years to work on other projects like the Bell Science Fair before moving to Revelstoke. “His career at Vanier was long and fruitful and he

shepherded through many changes ranging from moves and resulting re-organizations to new pedagogy and the integration of information technology,” wrote Gilbert Héroux, Director General of the college, in a statement. “His passing is a loss to us all.” Johnson was invariably described as very intelligent. Mayor David Raven said he was “a real gentleman and a big player in the community.” “I enjoyed every minute I was with him,” he said. “I found him to be a very classy gentleman. He had an obvious intellect and he was somebody I enjoyed listening to.” Busch said Edna Mae was in shock over his sudden passing. “She told me she was trying to make reason of it, trying to understand why this happened,” she said. “We’ll have to do some recovering ourselves.” The Vanier College Foundation established a scholarship fund in Johnson’s honour. The David Johnson Memorial Fund will finance an annual scholarship to a graduating student with top marks in one of the college’s pre-university science programs. Johnson’s family is asking for people to make donations to the Revelstoke Community David Johnson Foundation in lieu of flowers.

Revelstoke city council is nearing the end of budget deliberations and is aiming for a two-per cent tax increase for all property classes this year and in each coming year. Councillors will debate the remaining details at a Mar. 27 special meeting where slight adjustments are the norm. On Mar. 27, city council will also consider a request from Downie Timber for continuing property tax reductions. Council will also have to factor in a $40,000 request from the Revelstoke Community Energy Corporation for a study to explore ownership models. In addition to taxation increases anticipated in the 2 per cent range, there are other proposed increases. Water rates are proposed to rise by about 2 per cent and sewer rates will be boosted by 3.72 per cent. A new $40 per year fee will be added for residential customers for the new

curbside recycling program. A finance focus group consisting of residents and business stakeholders provided input on the budget process this year. They focused on several themes. One was “value for dollars” that explored the need for better auditing and analysis to ensure taxpayers were getting quality service for their dollars. The focus group noted spending at the city planning department and the fire department. In a report to council, they said the planning department budget ballooned from about $300,000 to $750,000 to accommodate the development of Revelstoke Mountain Resort. “Now that much of the planning work is done, do we need to maintain that level of service?” they ask. The focus group also turned the hose on fire department spending. The cited a 67 per cent increase in the department’s budget. They also focused on overtime, saying the budget was about $35,000 in 2007. That ballooned to $80,000, $108,000 and $92,000 in 2009, 2010 and

2011 respectively. “With additional fire equipment forecasted in future budgets we have to ask whether we can afford this,” they write in a report to council. The focus group also noted an uncomfortable debt burden and argued the city needed to do more to build reserve. They also advocated for a reduction in the total taxation burden that is placed on commercial properties. Perennial taxation fighter Coun. Tony Scarcella has proposed an alternate version. He is suggesting a three-per cent reduction in the operating budget and a significant reduction in the level of taxation for Downie Timber. He suggests reducing Downie’s industrial property taxation rate to be on par with other commercial properties. The dollar and percentage values of Scarcella’s proposals were not spelled out in budget documents. A public review period, including comments, follows the approval of the draft plan.

Resident wants RCMP to slow down Editor, Re: No serious injuries after truck crashes into RCMP, revelstoketimesreview.com, Mar. 23 Police officers are getting to be more and more like a bunch of cowboys when they’re driving. A rainbow on the side of the vehicle does not put the driver above the law. Exceeding speed limits, running stop signs and proceeding

L E T T ER S through red lights is a privilege, not a right, that they may exercise only after determining it is save to do so. Yes, a peace officer (unlike ambulance of fire truck drivers), may drive in emergency mode without using the siren, but only when they have a valid reason and consideration has been given to general

public safety. Lights and sirens indicate the driver is requesting others yield their right of way. They do not mean the officer automatically has it. And, how much response time was saved in this case? Bill Shuttleworth, Revelstoke

Employment centre under new management starting Monday ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

There will be a new manager, one less staff person and a new website when Revelstoke’s employment centre changes hands next week. Otti Brown will be taking over as manager of the centre from Cathie Thacker, who is moving on under her own accord. There will also be one less staff member at the centre when WCG International assumes the contract

to run the centre, which will become known as the Employment Program of BC. A new website will be launched on April 2. The move is part of a provincial government program to amalgamate several disparate employment assistance programs into one program. WCG won the contract to run the program after no one else bid on the contract in Revelstoke. Okanagan College, which used to run the centre, declined to bid on the

new contract. WCG is a human resources consulting company base out of Victoria, B.C. Jill Zacharias, the city’s social development co-ordinator, said the new contractor has “really been conscientious about maintaining continuity of service to the best of their ability.” Sally Deck, the contract manager with WCG, said some programs, like the employment assistance program run by Community Futures, will remain as-is. Assistance

Polygamy ruling stands TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. government will rely on a B.C. Supreme Court ruling upholding Canada’s law against multiple marriages as it continues to investigate the polygamous community of Bountiful. Attorney General Shirley Bond announced Monday that the province will not continue its reference case to the Supreme Court of Canada. B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman ruled in November 2011 that the law against polygamy is an acceptable intrusion into the constitutional right to freedom of religion. Charges against Winston Blackmore and

James Oler, rival leaders of the Bountiful community, were dismissed on a legal technicality by another B.C. judge in 2009. Blackmore was charged with having 19 wives and Oler three wives. Bond said special prosecutor Peter Wilson’s mandate has been expanded to include possible prosecutions, based on Bauman’s decision. The RCMP have been investigating the Bountiful situation for more than 20 years. The Fundamentalist Church of Latter-Day Saints split with the mainstream Mormon church a century ago rather than renounce multiple marriage. The B.C. community was established in the 1940s, but didn’t come to public attention until the 1980s.

for people with disabilities and income-assistance programs will be run by WCG. “That’s our experties throughout the province,” said Deck. She said all services that were previously available will remain, but under the name of one program. “It is a different program delivering model,” said Zacharias. “I think it’s going to take at least six months for them to figure it out. I think they’re going to try for as little disruption as possible but its

going to take them a while to figure out everything.” According to Zacharias, there was a risk of there being no employment centre in Revelstoke at all if WCG did not bid on the contract. “Given everything, we’re actually fairly fortunate that we’re going to have a pretty smooth transition and that we’re going to have an employment centre to begin with,” she said.

PLANNING NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Please be advised that a Public Hearing will be held in the Macpherson Room at the Community Centre located at 600 Campbell Avenue on Wednesday, April 4th, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. APPLICANT: City of Revelstoke

1. Second Street West from Wright Street to King Street - the project is tied into the Water Capital project to replace the Cast Iron water main running from Wright Street to the galvanized water main about a third of the way down Second Street. The cross section of the road does not meet the City standard for a local minor road as there is no sidewalk and street lighting. The pavement condition is rated as ‘Reconstruct Now’.

1. Amendment to the Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1950 to change the Land Use section.

2. Upgrade Victoria Road from Eighth Street East to Mill Street - with the completion of the new Senior Secondary School, traffic and pedestrian volumes along the road have increased to the point where widening should be considered to accommodate the additional traffic. The curb and gutter will help to prevent heavy transports from driving on the boulevards which contributes to the dust problem residents in the area experience. The provision of curb and gutter will improve the effectiveness of street sweeping.

All persons who feel that their interest may be affected by the proposed Bylaw shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard or to present written submission at the Public Hearing. The file for the proposed Bylaw is available for review in the Planning Department Office, City Hall, 216 Mackenzie Avenue, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays to 3:00 p.m. up until April 4, 2012.

Revelstoke’s yarn bombers struck again last week, this time hitting the famous grizzly bear statues that mark the gateway to Grizzly Plaza. The so-called House Keeping gang struck sometime overnight on March 21, adorning the statues with scarves, leg warmers and little hats for their ears. ‘House Keeping’ previously targeted the fish sculpture at the end of February and is believed to be behind the scarf wrapped around the Rotary Clock in late-January. They also knitted Gnorm, Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s snow measuring gnome, a scarf and hat. The Times Review scoured the scene for clues to the gang’s identity but unlike last time, no note was found. We did find a piece of red yarn Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review lying on the ground. DNA sampling is pending.

Have a Safe and Fun Easter

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the new kid on the ski resort block in the Kootenay region, but that could change. The B.C. government announced the approval of the controversial Jumbo Glacier Resort on Mar. 20 at a Victoria press conference. The proposal for the glacier resort in the Purcell mountains west of Invermere has been on the table for more than 20 years. The proposal has divided communities in the area as proponents and opponents have faced off during many key decision points. “I made this decision after reviewing all of the relevant, extensive documentation that is on this file, visiting the site and meeting with both First Nations and the proponent,” said Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson. “I recognize and respect that there have been differing [opinions] on this project, but after more than 20 years of this extensive review and consultation, it was time to make a decision.” The Master Development Agreement signed on Mar. 20 calls for a resort that would be about the same size as Silver Star Resort near Vernon. Jumbo would have an area of 5,965 hectares and just over 6,200 accommodation units once full build-out is achieved. Part of the resort is to be located on a glacier which would allow for year-round skiing. Thomson said the B.C. government is also considering incorporating a mountain resort municipality based around the resort. The agreement means the proponent must have “substantial work” underway by 2014. Columbia River – Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald said that government officials should have travelled to Invermere to make the announcement there. “This is tremendously disrespectful to make this announcement in Victoria instead of coming and facing the people of this valley. If this was truly the right thing for this area, the government would be here in Invermere making this announcement.” But Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett told the press gallery at the Victoria announcement that making the announcement in Invermere would have been a mistake. “I think you would have ended up with a thousand people on either side of the street,” Bennett said. “You would have had proponents shouting how much they support it and why and you would have had a thousand people on the other side of the street shouting about why it shouldn’t happen, and you would have perpetuated the sort of dynamic that has existed in our communities ... we’ve had enough of that.” Bennett said opponents of Jumbo Glacier Resort were “very sophisticated, well informed” and committed “masters of delay” who fought the proposal effectively at many stages. Both Thomson and Bennett said several times that they respected opponents’ views. “Our communities over the past 22 years have been divided over this controversy,” Bennett said. “We wanted it over. We wanted a decision from government.” He said the government and premier had shown courage making the decision today. The resort still faces another hurdle in the form of a possible judicial review of the decision. The Ktunaxa Nation remains opposed to the development of the resort, saying the area is considered to be sacred. “We offered a great deal of evidence to the decision makers on the cultural value of this area to Ktunaxa” said Kathryn Teneese, Ktunaxa Nation Chair. “We made it very clear that any development in this area would cause serious and irreversible harm to the Ktunaxa Nation, to our culture, to grizzly bears and to many other wildlife and environmental values.” In November of 2010 the Ktunaxa issued the “Qat’muk Declaration” that asserted the area was an important spiritual area for the Ktunaxa.

“Ktunaxa will exercise our responsibility to protect the sacred, cultural and other values of Qat’muk in the most effective ways possible.” Teneese said. “The Ktunaxa are not opposed to development, but we have been clear from the beginning of this 20 year process that Qat’muk is not an appropriate area for development to take place.” Minister Thomson said legal challenges to the decision were possible. “The key issue is determining, from a legal perspective, is whether the spiritual declaration represents, from a case law perspective a strength of title or not,” Thomson said in reference to the Ktunaxa’s Qat’muk Declaration. “The legal advice is that it does not.” He added the issues were addressed through creating a grizzly bear management plan and establishing a wildlife management area, amongst other measures. In a February media release, the Ktunaxa Nation questioned the economic benefits of the proposed resort, saying it would be a net negative for the region. “Even government’s premise that this will create jobs for families is simply wrong and misinformed,” Teneese said. “Last November we released an economic report by Dr. Marvin Schaffer which showed that this resort is likely to have zero net economic benefit for the people B.C. The report indicated that any job gains at the new resort will likely be offset by losses at other resorts or tourism businesses, particularly as there has been overall decline in the ski tourism market since 2004.” “It will only provide minimum wage jobs,” said Teneese. “The local businesses are already having a hard time filling those. This project will provide very few jobs for families to survive on.” However, minister Thomson disagreed. “I’m confident that the project will provide local job creation and economic growth for the region while upholding responsible environmental stewardship.” In an interview with the Revelstoke Times Review, Thomson said the government felt Jumbo would be a net positive for the region’s ski trade because it was a unique, year-round resort that would contribute to a “cluster” of ski hills in the region: “There [are] requirements of socio-economic studies, financial feasibility studies ... [they are] all part of the package of approvals for both the environmental assessment process and the additional approval of the resort master plan.” Thomson said those studies showed that Jumbo would improve the business for surrounding resorts. Thomson said the agreement could help secure financing. “By having the master development agreement approved now, it’s going to allow him to have that certainty in order to finalize his ... investors.” Locally, Revelstoke Mountain Resort Chief Operating Officer Rod Kessler applauded the the decision. “The more mountain enthusiasts that we can create and get them into the market and get them hooked on skiing and the mountain lifestyle, the better,” Kessler said. “We wish them the best of luck and are encouraged by the news.” He hoped a possible development was a sign the economy was recovering. Following the announcement, MLA Norm Macdonald spoke to the Times Review and panned the decision. He said the government had been dismissive and disrespectful of local interests and were in for a fight. “They’re dismissive of three or four bears. Who cares right? The community doesn’t want it? Who cares? The First Nations say it’s spiritual. Who cares?” Macdonald said. “You’re at a point where there’s a pattern of arrogance and disrespect that people in this area have never been inclined to accept and certainly won’t now. And I think that’s something people in Revelstoke, Golden and Kimberley ... understand. We’re going to be masters of our own area here and if somebody tries to impose then they’re in for a fight.

Comedian Matt Billon has an ace up his sleeve KRISTIN FRONEMAN Black Press

Although there are usually no jokers used in the game of blackjack, in the case of one comedy tour coming to a town near you, you’ll get a pair of them. Called the Blackjack Comedy Tour because it originally featured 21 shows in 21 towns, funnymen Matt Billon and Mike MacDonald are back on the road, and stop to perform in Revelstoke on Thursday. “This is our fourth tour together. It works out that every four-to-six months we are able to tour together. So far we have managed to conquer Winnipeg on west, and we are hoping to book a tour out east soon. Next stop, the Maritimes,” said Billon, who jokingly refers to MacDonald as his “male” order bride. “Mike is in California but is still patriotic to Canada so he’s willing to come up here anytime I suggest we do another tour.” Billon is in familiar territory as the tour winds through the B.C. Interior. He grew up in Penticton, and left while in middle school to live in Nelson. After leaving B.C. after high school to make it as a comedian in Toronto, he briefly returned to live in Nelson two years ago before deciding on a new home – this one on wheels – in the form of a 20-foot RV he shares with his very tolerant girlfriend. “We’ve put 30,000 kilometres on it since October with trips to L.A., Vegas, Winnipeg and the Yukon,” said Billon. “Some people think I’ve retired now and will go to work later. My thinking is that if I don’t do it now,

I’ve got a long road ahead.” With all this road travel, Billon has an “ace” in his pocket when it comes to using local, insider knowledge to make people laugh. “It doesn’t hurt to open with a few local observations you have of the lifestyle of the area,” he said. “Sometimes when you can get a chunk of material from a location, it makes it all that more exciting, like with my taxicab joke that I use out east. I notice everyone in the Maritimes always sits in the front seat. What’s with that?” Billon is especially happy to be back on the road with the “King of Canadian Comedy,” MacDonald. With appearances on a number of late-night talk shows and comedy specials both here and across the border, as well as hosting gigs for the Gemini Awards and the Just For Laughs 10th Anniversary Special, MacDonald holds the distinction of being the only comedian to perform at each and every Just For Laughs gala show since its inception. It’s at the famed Montreal comedy festival where Billon first met MacDonald in 2003. “He came up to me after the show and gave me a compliment, and then later booked a show where I opened for him,” said Billon. “Mike has paved the way for many of us. The guy’s been on Letterman, but he’s still doing most of his work up here.” Although he’s yet to break onto the comedy scene down south, although he’d like to try, Billon has done pretty well in his home country. He’s appeared on CBC’s

Madly Off in all Directions and The Debaters, as well as MuchMusic’s Video on Trial, and XM Satellite Radio’s Laugh Attack. He also hosted his own onehour, jam-packed special on The Comedy Network, and has been a finalist/winner in The Great Canadian Laugh Off, Stand Up & BITE Me and the Seattle International Comedy Competition. However, despite the distinctions, Billon says his main job is to make everyday people laugh –– and it’s a tough job, up there with those ice road truckers and deep-sea fishermen. “I’ll be at the back of a room at a big show, and think ‘this is the career I had to choose. Why do this to myself?’ But for the most part, I love what I do. My job is to make you laugh and if I don’t do it well, I’m ruining 300 people’s night,” he said. “Comics are usually blown away when people appreciate how hard it is up there. You can also get comfortable with silence. Mostly it’s terrifying for a little while and intense with live shows, but again it’s the profession I’ve chosen, so I roll with it.” And it seems that the smaller the community, the more love comics are shown. Billon has noticed that on this Blackjack tour, people in smaller towns are grateful to greet someone with the stature of MacDonald. “It’s funny when I’m touring with Mike, and people come up to him and ask ‘why are you here?’ And his reply is ‘your money is as good as anyone else’s’.” The Blackjack Comedy Tour rolls through Revelstoke on Thursday, Mar. 29 with a performance at the River City Pub.

Revelstoke Ski Club hands out end-of-season awards Contributed by the Revelstoke Ski Club

During the March break four Revelstoke Ski Club K2 racers attended the KLM CanAm Western Championships at Panorama Mountain near Invermere, hosted by Alberta Alpine and the Panorama Ski Team. The four Revelstoke skiers joined a field of nearly 200 racers from across western Canada and the US to determine the Canadian U15 Western female and male champions in four disciplines: super-G, giant slalom, slalom and ski-cross. On day one under clear skies the women completed their two run GS race in the morning, where Sonia Schwenck, the sole female racer for the RSC, skied two clean runs to finish in 46th position. Following the women’s GS event, the volunteers and men moved over to the slalom course for the afternoon. Mitch Smith just missed a podium finish by 0.02 seconds, finishing in fourth place. Callum

Hicks showed his best result of the week with a 13th place finish, and Max Scharf straddled a gate on his second run after clocking a sixth best time on the first run. On day two, the men and women switched courses, with the men first up for the GS. In heavy snowfall, Smith ran a seventh best time, Hicks bettered his first run time by four positions to finish 20th, and Scharf finished 25th. On the slalom course in the afternoon Schwenck clipped a gate on her second run and was spun out of the course receiving a DNF. The snow continued to fall on Friday resulting in soft conditions for day three, where both the women and men were scheduled for the super-G event. The course crew worked hard to prepare the track and after a short delay the women were first up. Schwenck started late in the group and skied to a 68th place finish. In the men’s event, Smith finished with a time of 1:00.09 for 15th place, Scharf came 21st with a time of 1:00.33 and Hicks earned 37th sport with a time of 1:01.37. “The fact that we are competing with the U.S. and Westerns Canada best skiers give our athletes the opportunity to challenge themselves, challenge their skiing, challenge their intensity and forces them to race at a different level then what they are used to,” said coach Ned Lazarevic. “Those kids really were able to push themselves in a way that they don’t have to when they are competing with the same kids day in, day out.” On Sunday, Mar. 25, the Revelstoke Ski Club recognized its final day of the season for the RioTinto Alcan Nancy Greene Ski League with a short awards celebration in the sunshine outside the mid-mountain lodge at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. With many of the coaches and racers dressed in crazy dress, each of the Nancy Greene program skiers were congratulated on their excellent improvement and participation throughout the season. Alex Klassen and Sophia Humphries were presented with most improved skier awards in the E2 division. In the K1 division, Linea Allain received the most improved female award and Caroline Bouwmeester and Callum Hicks received most improved female and male awards in the K2 division. From the FIS team, Jamie Park was awarded the most improved female and Lachlan Hicks the most improved male. The final award presented was for the most sportsmanlike, which is voted on by the athletes themselves. It was shared by Sonia Schwenck and Emily Unterberger. As the K and FIS racers have yet to finish their season the coaches will present the most valuable racer awards once the final races are completed. The RSC extends its gratitude to all the Nancy Greene coaches and parents for their support this past ski season as well as to all the community sponsors who all contribute to the ski club’s success. This coming weekend the RSC is looking forward to hosting 200 racers for the Okanagan zone Teck finals. Racers and their families will be arriving in town Friday night for Saturday’s slalom race and Sunday’s head-to-head dual slalom. Although this event is a Kinder and Juvenile level event, it is open to nine and 10-year old racers who will be moving to this level next year, making it one of the more exciting and fun events of the year for both the veteran racers and the soon to be. Please be sure to come watch these future Olympians take on the gates on lower Hollywood at RMR. Although many are starting to think of spring sports the FIS and K racers are continuing to prep their skis for the spring events, with the FIS team heading to Panorama from April 1-6 for the Miele Cup Spring series and the K racers waiting for the final qualifying list to be announced this week for the Whistler Cup to be held at Whistler from April 6-8.

Aleesha Kaler

O.A.C

Courtney Kaler is asking the community for help in raising money for a rare disorder her sister Aleesha has. “My main thing is to make people aware of the disorder and let them know someone in the community has it,” Courtney said. Aleesha, 17, suffers from Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC), a very rare neurological disorder that can cause anything from mild weakness to complete paralysis of one or both sides of the body for varying lengths of time. Only one in 1 million people are suspected of having the disorder. “A lot of doctors don’t know about it because it’s so rare. We, the family, had to do our own learning about it,” said Courtney. In late February, the AHC Foundation launched a campaign called 1 in a Million, in which they hope to raise $1 million to research the disorder. According to the foundation, researchers are verging on discovering the cause of AHC, and they are hoping that will help lead to a cure. Courtney said Aleesha is a big fan of basketball, swimming and bowling. She also has a great sense of humour. Still, while Aleesha might look perfectly normal, she suffers migraines and frequent seizures. “The disorder is progressive so we’re actually noticing that it is getting worse. Her walking is getting worse,” she said, adding that she expected it [would] keep getting worse into adulthood, despite the disorders name. Donations can be made online by visiting www. ahc2012.org and clicking on the link that says ‘Donate Now.’ Those who are uncomfortable providing their credit card information online can make a donation to Courtney in person, and she can make the donation for you. She can be contacted at 250-814-9256 or by e-mail at courtneykaler@telus.blackberry.net. She is asking donations be made in tribute to Aleesha Kaler. “To help with this fundraiser would mean a lot to all of us,” Courtney said.

It was a quiet day on the mountain last week when all of a sudden a ski patrol came running out. There’s been an avalanche, 20-25 people stuck. Several patrollers mobilized, criss-crossing down the upper slope of South Bowl, beacons on search mode. Then the dogs came, as many as eight zig-zagging through the snow, noses scanning the air for the scent of the buried humans. The search was part of an advanced Canadian Avalanche Rescue Dog Associa-

tion course held at Revelstoke Mountain Resort last week. It was a mass burial exercise and there 20 articles of clothing buried underneath the snow for the dogs to dig up (as well as several beacons for ski patrol to find). There were eight CARDA teams taking part in the exercise, including teams from Whistler, Golden, Banff, Revelstoke and the RCMP. Zuzanna Driediger, a longtime local CARDA member, was taking part with her dog Hero, but she wasn’t having her best day. Hero kept running off, caught up in the excitement of the drill. There was a definite sign of frustra-

tion in Driediger’s voice as she called him back. “It was challenging working in multi-dog scenario,” she said. “My dog is really good at ranging. It was a challenge to keeping him close to me so he wouldn’t get into another dogs area. “He was having an off day,” she added. “He wasn’t himself.” Driediger has been working with avalanche rescue dogs for close to 20 years and has taken part in many events, including the 2010 Boulder Mountain avalanche. She was a ski patroller at Manning Park near Chilliwack, B.C., and when she worked there,

an RCMP officer would come up to train his dog. “It just interested me and then it all came together.” While living in Switzerland for a year, she met some handlers. When she came back to Canada, she got her first dog, a border collie named Arrow. CARDA, which has 34 teams right now, was much smaller back then. She went through the training, taking one course while pregnant. Not long after she moved to Revelstoke, she found it a challenge to integrate herself into the mountain community. “It was hard because I was young and I was a woman,” she said. “Being accepted into

the snowmobile scene and the mountain guide scene was really challenging. I don’t think people realized the value of an avalanche dog and how efficient they can be.” Arrow had his chance to shine after an avalanche at a backcountry skiing lodge. No one was caught in the slide, but the group lost most of its gear. Driediger and Arrow were called in to search for the lost equipment. She was unsure at what they would find, but Arrow managed to dig up packs, skis and other equipment. “My dog blew me away because he found just about everything,” she said. *** Gwen Milley, a ski patroller in Whistler, has been involved with CARDA since 1995. She started with her first dog, Toby, a golden retriever. “I grew up with dogs, I’ve always loved dogs and I thought it would be a great way to enhance my skills,” she told me at the top of South Bowl following the exercise. “It’s super fun.” Chili, who she was taking the course with, was her second dog; Toby died of cancer when he was nine, shortly before his pending retirement. Most dogs, she said, last until they’re eight- or nineyears-old. The work of a rescue dog is hard on the dog physically. “It’s up to the handler to realize when its time to retire the dog based on its physical abilities to do the job well.” To join CARDA you need to be registered with the Provincial Emergency Program, be a member of a recognized winter mountain rescue group, have your CAA Level 1, an 80-hour First Aid certification and the dog must be at least one-year-old by the time it starts the first winter course. Milley is a puppy trainer for CARDA and she spoke about what it takes to train an avalanche rescue dog. The first

thing the organization asks of potential handlers is that they come observe a spring and winter course. There, they can observe what the organization is about, the different breeds that are used and learn how to play with the dogs properly. After that, it’s a matter of selecting a breed that you want to work with. German shepherds, Belgian malinois, Labrador retrievers, Golden retrievers and border colllies are known for making good avalanche rescue dogs. “You’re looking for high drive dogs,” Milley said. “Good physical makeup. Good coat, got to have nice long nose for sniffing.” Dogs have incredible senses of smell – thousands, even millions, times more sensitive than humans. A fully trained police dog can detect a small amount of drugs or chemicals amidst thousands of other odours. Avalanche rescue dogs are trained to detect human scent as it wafts up from the snow and spreads through the air. Training begins as a puppy with obedience and basic games like hide-and-seek. “When they’re puppies, you always run away with an article. They start to learn the association with the human scent and that article because they get to play tug of war, and that’s the reward.” After that comes a spring course, followed by more training, followed by another winter course. Once a dog passes the winter course they get team-in-training status. After completing another round of spring and winter courses, the team gets validated. Drieidger said the key was to keep it fun so it thinks it’s playing, not working. “The dog wants to find something so it knows it has a fun reward at the end.” *** The biggest search in re-

cent times was the Boulder Mountain avalanche. Driediger was called in and she and Hero were on scene within 20 minutes of the avalanche coming down. There was helicopters flying around, fires being built on the debris, the smell of gasoline from the sleds and more chaos. “It was definitely overwhelming but it was a great learning experience for me,” she said. She spent three days there. At one point, she said, Hero sniffed out three snowmobiles that were lying on top of each other, underneath the snow. That demonstrated one of the challenges – you don’t know if the dog has found what they smelled, or if there was something buried below it. “It was the worst case sce-

nario that I could ever imagine,” she said. “Now I have the experience of being there and working something like that, it boosts your confidence.” The Boulder experience came up several times while the handlers waited for the debriefing following the training exercise. I sat in on the debriefing, where the handlers, as well as the ski patrollers that took part talked about the challenges such as controlling ones dog with so many distractions around and dividing up the area to search as efficiently as possible. In the end the dogs didn’t find everything, but they did dig up 18 out of 20 items buried in the snow.

Megan Evans takes overall title at Nordic nationals ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

Megan Evans is home from the Canadian crosscountry skiing championships with her luggage a little bit heavier after winning three medals and dominating the overall standings amongst juvenile girls during the week-long competition. Evans, 15, won a gold, silver and bronze medal in the juvenile girls competition at the Haywood Nationals near Quebec City from Mar. 17-24. Her sister Brittany, racing in the junior girls division, did not fare as well, posting only one top-10 finish. The sisters started the week by teaming up for the girls team sprint relay on Mar. 17. Completing three laps each, they came in seventh place, 50.8 seconds behind the winners. On Monday, Mar. 19, both girls raced in the 5 kilometres classic. Megan finished third – second amongst Canadians – and Brittany finished 10th. On Mar. 20, they both raced in their respective free technique events. In the five kilometre juvenile girls race, Megan came in second, trailing only American Katharine Ogden. In the 10 kilometre junior girls event, Brittany finished 25th. The racers battled unseasonably warm weather throughout the week. By the time the sprints started on Mar. 21, the temperature in Quebec City was topping 20 C and setting records in the process. In the springs, Megan made the A-final, where she wound up fifth. Brittany did not make it out of the qualification and wound up 33rd. However, Megan saved her best for last, with a victory in the 7.5 kilometre classic, mass start race. She edged out Quebec’s Laurence Dumais by just under four seconds to take top spot on the podium. Brittany finished 23rd in the Junior Girls race to finish off her week.

Megan Evans races to second place in the juvenile girls five kilometre free technique. She was beat by an American competitor, meaning Evans was first amongst Canadians in the race. Bernard Pigeon photo

Macdonald also pointed towards road building costs for the project. He estimated the cost to upgrade the road to the proposed resort at $200 million and said taxpayers wanted no part of that bill. A Ministry of Transportation spokesperson underlined that the province would not pay for that construction. Macdonald also noted a recent trip to Europe by Jumbo proponents to drum up financing for the project, questioning the willingness of investors to spend in a region already saturated with ski resorts. He joined other critics of the project in saying the approval does not mean the project is going forward. Regional environmental organization Wild-

Jumbo, from page 12 That’s what you’ll see in Invermere.” When asked if a future NDP government would take steps to reverse the decision or otherwise stop the Jumbo Glacier development, Macdonald reiterated his opposition but stopped short of actually outlining how the government would do that. “I think we’ve been clear and Adrian Dix has been clear that this is not economic development that makes sense,” Macdonald said. “You need to be convinced that it’s worthwhile giving away the public land and essentially subsidizing this sort of a development. There has to be public good,” Macdonald said.

sight was one of many groups who lined up against the decision. Environmental concerns aside, he said it made bad economic sense. “This proposal is definitely a threat to a pie that has already been sliced quite thinly,” said Wildsight executive director John Bergenske in an interview. “Additionally, it’s really not about skiing. It’s about ... getting Crown land to be able to sell real estate development.” Bergenske said Wildsight had supported community-based ski hills in the past and wondered what the impact would be on hills like Revelstoke’s. Bergenske also underscored this approval was only another step in the process and that it didn’t change much. Another threat to Revelstoke interests is

the possibility of a road connecting the Jumbo Resort westward to Meadow Creek, Kaslo and the West Kootenay. That route could divert significant tourist and other traffic away from Revelstoke. However, most people we spoke with said it wasn’t in the cards in the near term. “The developer would have to initiate a route between Meadow Creek and Jumbo resort,” wrote a Ministry of Transportation spokesperson. “The ministry does not know if the developer will propose that as a route to the resort.” Bergenske noted that route had been an additional concern in the past, but that it hadn’t been discussed lately. He added it was always a concern to Wildsight.

Obituaries

Obituaries John William Kalinczuk 1949 - 2012 John William Kalinczuk, of Revelstoke B.C., died peacefully Wednesday, March 14, 2012 in Mount Cartier Court Extended Care facility. He was surrounded by his wife and children at the time of his passing.

John was born October 11, 1949 in Moose Jaw SK, to parents Anthony and Ann Kalinczuk. He lived there, along with his sister Jenny, until he moved to B.C. in 1969 to pursue a career with the Canadian PaciÂżc Railway. His job with the CPR was a source of great pride and enjoyment for John, and it allowed him to provide a more than comfortable living for his family. His children, Jodi, Janice, John and Jay-lyn would like to thank their dad for all of the hard work he did to support them through the years, we love you dad. John lived in a few communities in B.C. including Glacier and Salmon Arm, before settling in Revelstoke with his second wife Barbara in 2000, with whom he shared his love for animals. Sadly, John's health failed over the last ten years, which was difÂżcult for someone who liked to be out walking in the great outdoors as much as possible... most happily with a dog at his side. John Kalinczuk will be sorely missed by many. Although his parents are deceased, he is survived by his sister, children, wife, four grand children (Kendra, Hannah, Olivia and Abigial), nephew (Rodi) and Niece (Nicki). For all of those who would like to take part in a Celebration of Life Tea, you are welcome to attend the Knights of Pythias Hall on March 31, 2012 between 1100-1300. It will be an open house format, so feel free to come by and join his family in saying so long to John William Kalinczuk. The family would like to say thank-you to the doctors and nurses who helped John Âżght his illness for so many years. Special thanks to the doctor and the nurses in his home, who helped to make his last days as peaceful as possible.

Keith McCoy Keith Denly McCoy passed away on March 20th, 2012 at Piccadilly Care Center with his family by his side. Keith was born July 27th, 1921 in Vancouver, B.C. The ocean was a huge part of his upbringing and he spent many hours swimming and paddle boarding with friends in English Bay. As a young man he competed on a sculling team.

Salmon Arm GM is pleased to welcome our new Revelstoke Connection,

Randy Knecht Sales Consultant

After graduating from High School, Keith worked as an airplane inspector for Boeing in Vancouver and served with the Air Force during the Second World War. After the war, he took his teacher training. He was an industrial arts teacher and eventually a Vice-Principal at Revelstoke Senior Secondary. There he met and married Doran Vimy Middleton in Revelstoke, where they brought up their two children, Deni and Mark. During the early part of his teaching career, he spent summers in Field B.C. building trails and buildings for Parks Canada. In later years, Keith spent the winters skiing with his family and the summers ¿shing at the family cottage on the Shuswap Lake. After retiring in June of 1979, Keith designed and built a beautiful home for he and Vimy in Sicamous. He was an extremely skilled carpenter. He could repair anything and took great care and pride in the quality of his work. His attention to detail in everything he did was equal to none. Keith and Vimy travelled the world and ¿lled their home with items collected from every continent but Antarctica. The photographs depicting their journeys were outstanding. Keith lived by several mottos: measure twice and cut once; never give up; do your best; earn others trust and remain loyal. His inÀuence and direction made a difference in his family and students’ lives.

Randy is well known in the Revelstoke area and is a veteran of the car industry, having worked for over 40 years in the auto trade. He brings knowledge, experience and integrity to the Auto Sales business in Revelstoke and he looks forward to helping you find your next New GM Vehicle or GM Optimum Used Vehicle.

Keith was predeceased by his wife, Doran Vimy, son Mark, parents Frances Sadie and Jack and sister Joyce. He is survived by his daughter, Deni and grandchildren, Keenan, Ryan and Dana. Thank you to Dr. Beech and the staff at Piccadilly Care Center for their kindness and care. Thank you to our families and loved ones for their support and love. Special gratitude goes to Sue McCrae for her constant support on his ¿nal journey. A celebration of Keith’s life was held at Bower’s Funeral Chapel on Tuesday, March 27th, at 3:00 P.M. Donations in memory of Keith can be made to the Cancer Society.

Arrangements are in the care of Brandon Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.
