Revelstoke Grizzlies owners apply to move team to 100 Mile House AARON ORLANDO


The 2010/11 Revelstoke Grizzlies reached the pinnacle of Junior B achievement, winning the Keystone Cup to become the western Canadian champions. A move to sell the team to 100 Mile House could mean the victory will remain the high point for the franchise forever. Revelstoke Times Review file photo

A May 6 meeting of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League board of governors will determine if Revelstoke will have Junior B hockey next season. On Sunday, April 1, the current ownership team of the Revelstoke Grizzlies sent notification to the KIJHL’s 20 governors notifying them of their intent to sell the team to a group from 100 Mile House. The 100 Mile House Wranglers have their own website, logo and have announced a spring camp taking place April 13–15. Rumours that the two parties have been in discussion have been persistent over the past months. KIJHL president Bill Ohlhausen confirmed the news of the notification to move in an April 2 interview. “This is the first time that the governors have heard about this,” Ohlhausen said. “They will have to decide.” He said he wasn’t in a position to answer political questions about the application to move until after the governors had met on the issue. The teams in the league are pri-

vately held and give the owners broad leeway over what they can do with them. However, the application will also require permission from the league governors. “That’s the basic bottom line to it,” he said. Ohlhausen noted the Grizzlies ownership had missed a Mar. 1 deadline to apply to transfer a team and that approval from the board would require more than 50 per cent of the vote. Revelstoke Grizzlies co-owner Mike Roberts was not available by telephone before press time on Monday. Co-owner Lou Hendrickson was reached but he deferred questions to Roberts. Revelstoke Grizzlies Society president Tammy Kaler said the news was crushing. “I would be devastated if it’s moving,” she said. The Revelstoke Grizzlies first came to Revelstoke in 1991 and were sold to a private ownership group in 2006. The Grizzlies Society has operated in parallel to the ownership group, who are the de facto bosses of the organization. Kaler said the KIJHL, page 13

Multicultural society shares Italian experience Tony Scarcella shares his experience immigrating from a small Calabrian farming town to Revelstoke at multicultural film night at Okanagan College AARON ORLANDO

Tony Scarcella’s talk about his experience immigrating to Revelstoke was the highlight of the evening. Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review

Revelstoke resident Tony Scarcella was a guest speaker at the Revelstoke Multicultural Society’s monthly film night series at Okanagan College last week. Scarcella followed his extended family to Revelstoke in 1952 when he was 16, leaving his farming community of Spezzano Piccolo in Calabria behind. He was part of the last wave of Italian immigrants to the commu-

nity and Canada. The first was in the late 1800s. John Colotto, the first recorded Italian immigrant, is noted in the Kootenay Star newspaper in 1894. By 1911, there were 491 Italians living here, many coming for work as labourers with the CPR. By the early 20th century the immigrants were integrated into all facets of community life -- shopkeepers, contractors, farmers, merchants and more. Mayor Anselmo served as Revelstoke’s first mayor of Italian descent from 1934–1936. Scarcella came with his father

Frank and the original plan was to stay for a few years to earn some money. “We heard that Canada was a great place for young people,” he said. Scarcella had to give up a potential professional soccer career to come to Revelstoke. “I played soccer in Italy, and I was good at it,” he said. He was on the local all-star team and had eyes on becoming pro. “I asked the coach. ‘Tell me the truth.’” His coach told him he could go pro, but would probably languish in a mid-level pro league. “If I can’t make the big league, I’m going to Canada,” he decided. He remembers a different Revelstoke. Friends helped each other see page 8

Developer answers questions at Shelter Bay open house

Developer Ender Ilkay address a crowd of about 30 people during an open house for his Shelter Bay development Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review Tuesday evening at the community centre. ALEX COOPER

Revised plans for the proposed development near Shelter Bay show more lots but with higher density and more open land than previously proposed. Developer Ender Ilkay was in Revelstoke on Tuesday for an open house and presentation to go over the revised plans for his proposed development near the Shelter Bay ferry terminal south of Revelstoke. He last presented plans to the community in November 2010. The new plans calls for 774 lots, up from 722, but the lots are clustered together more and are closer to Highway 23 south. They are divided into six planning areas. The previous plan proposed more lots on the hill above the highway.

“This is a concept for a recreational community,” said Ilkay during the presentation. “We see this as being a 25-year project from beginning to end.” Most of the lots are smaller ones that will have full sewer and water servicing, while there will also be 60 lots ranging in size from 2.5 to 5 acres that will have their own water and sewage systems. The focal point of the development will be the Feather Point Lodge. “This we see as being a lodge with restaurant, spa, dining, fitness facilities, hot and cool pools. Just a beautiful setting with the accommodation being these duplex units surrounding it,” said Ilkay. The plan also calls for a marina, and a network of walking, hiking, mountain biking and cross-country

skiing trails that will be open to the public. The trail network will be nonmotorized but there will be staging areas at the northern and southern limits of the property for snowmobilers and ATVers to access Crown land beyond the limits of the 5,200acre property. During a lengthy question and answer session that followed the presentation, Ilkay answered questions on a variety of subjects. - On servicing, Ilkay said the denser areas would have full water and sewage services. The larger lots would use wells and have their own treatment systems. The developer would build the systems but the CSRD would operate them once completed. - The lots will be sold with pre-made homes on them and the

exandra de Jong Westman, the environmental consultant working on the project. Signage will be put in place to educate residents about wildlife in the area. A wildlife management strategy will be developed over time. “Those management strategies are going to be developed over time as the project progresses,” Westman said. - A large general store will be built near the ferry dock. It will feature groceries, a coffee shop, deli counter, pizza oven and more, said Ilkay. “Everything from eggs to real estate will be sold at this general store.” - An amendment to the official community plan will be required to proceed. Currently the Area B OCP allows for a 143-acre minimum parcel size for rural resource areas and 9.98 acres for rural holdings. “The only way it’s going to happen is if it has broad support,” said Ilkay. “There’s no way we can provide the type of amenities that would make it a viable project and are appealing in a 60-lot project. The math couldn’t work.” Andy Parkin, a member of the Area B Advisory Planning Commission said he thought there were too many units for the development to be permitted, considering what is stipulated in the OCP. - Peter Bernacki, the owner of Nu-Trend Construction, expressed his support. “I’m grateful that you and your team have this project because the neighbour to the south did a disastrous job,” he said, referring to the clear-cutting done by Sage Investments, the owners of the nearby Eagle Bay lands. Ilkay said that he would begin going through the public zoning process shortly. If it doesn’t get approved he said it could either be maintained as a rural resource or divided into 36 large holdings. “It is a great piece of property,” he said. “I certainly hope that doesn’t happen, but if it’s going to happen, I’d rather know sooner than later. You have to work with what you have.”

development is considering prefabricated homes. Ilkay said this would mean a smaller footprint during the construction stage. The houses would be built in a factory and assembled on site. “Both from marketing perspective and from a control perspective, it’s nicer to offer a finished product and finished houses as opposed to saying, ‘Here’s lots, now come and build at your own pace,’” Ilkay said. - When asked what the cost of developing the property was, Ilkay said it would be in the tens of millions to build the necessary infrastructure. He declined to say what it would cost to buy a property there. “I can’t tell you what the prices will be because we’re not there yet,” he said. “It’s critically important that the first phase is priced attractively enough so it moves.” - When asked about the market for such a development, Ilkay said he thought the property presented a “real opportunity.” He said it would not be developed with a golf course. “There’s one amenity right now in public desire more than golf courses, and that’s a trail network,” he said. “You have the natural amenity of the lake. You have the natural amenity of hundreds of thousands of acres of Crown land immediately behind us. We do have these magnificent draws we do think will be very popular.” Later he added that the property would be landscaped to preserve its natural character. - For fire protection, Ilkay said the development would have its own volunteer fire department once it gets built out enough. “Before it’s big enough to have its own, it burns,” said Area B director Loni Parker. Ilkay added that the need for insurance provided an incentive for fire protection, such as sprinklers. “If you can’t insure it, you can’t sell it,” Ilkay said. - Hunting will not be permitted on the property. - Wildlife corridors have been mapped out and taken into consideration for the plans, said Al-

Thompson River University is targeting fall 2013 for the launch of the adventure tourism program in Revelstoke, the department’s chair says. “We want to ensure that when and if this gets going, we’d rather delay and do it right rather than press it,” said Gilles Valade, the chair of the Adventure Studies Program. The program would be run in Revelstoke by TRU and Okanagan College, with the university providing the adventure courses and the college the classroom courses. The long-rumoured program appears closer to reality, with the biggest hurdle right now being the financing needed to buy the equipment needed for the program. Alan Mason, the Director of Economic Development for the City of Revelstoke, said funds have been secured from the Economic Opportunity Fund that is administered by the city and the regional district; as well as Columbia Basin Trust, however, that funding is contingent on TRU and Okanagan College also providing some money. Valade said the funding

was both the “first hurdle and a show-stopper at the same time.” Thompson River University is targeting fall 2013 for the launch of the adventure tourism program in Revelstoke, the department’s chair says. Mason said he has asked that any money raised be spent locally. “If we’re going to raise the money, we’re going to help the program, it would be nice to spend that money locally.” Valade said an adventure program in Revelstoke “has a tonne or potential.” “Revelstoke is one of the best places for an adventure

studies program given where it is,” he said. He said the Revelstoke program would be different from the programs currently on offer and that the Revelstoke brand would be used to promote the program. The program currently accepts 50 students every year and the number of applicants exceeds it. The program already runs courses in the Revelstoke area, such as advanced ski touring and avalanche training. Valade said the program hires as many as 200 part-time instructors to teach courses – many of whom are professional guides. “It is teaching, it’s part of a university program,” he said. “It’s not taking clients out for a tour so we have to make this a training program for future guides and instructors.” The economic benefit of bringing the program to Revelstoke is estimated at $1 million. The cost to start the program is estimated at about $400,000 – most of which would go for equipment and vehicles. “That’s probably the most expensive component,” said Valade.

Snowmobilers at RMR raise questions about protecting city watershed ALEX COOPER

The City of Revelstoke and province are looking into issues regarding the Greeley Creek drainage after four snowmobilers reportedly used the area to infringe on the boundaries of Revelstoke Mountain Resort. “It looks like there is no recreational closure in the area so it is something we need to be following up on,” said Brian Mallett, the city’s director of engineering and public works. Mallett said he was contacted by an official from the Ministry of the Environment who said the Mar. 23 snowmobiling incident was being investigated. Greeley Creek is the source of most of the city’s water. The official said she could not speak about the incident with the press. The incident has also garnered the attention of the RCMP. “We’re working on running them down,”

said Staff Sgt. Jacquie Olsen. The incident happened on Friday, Mar. 23, at around 2 p.m. when four snowmobilers rode up the Greeley Drainage to the southside of the resort. “From the south-side of the boundary, they rode to the top of the Stoke chair where they were met by Mountain Operations personnel,” Sarah Windsor, RMR’s spokesperson said in an e-mail. “They were asked to leave but resisted.” The group was told the RCMP had been contacted but the snowmobilers expressed disregard for them. They took pictures and then took off at high speed back the way they came. It was later noted they broke the boundary rope at the point where they had accessed the resort. “Ultimately, they breached Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s controlled recreational area,” said Windsor. “Due to safety concerns, the resort’s controlled recreational

area is closed to public motorized access, as designated by the province. Our primary concern is, and remains, our guests’ safety.” Mallett said there was no restriction on motorized access to the Greeley drainage “it would be so hard to get through there, they never bothered to do it.” “Maybe it’s time – machines are getting more powerful and they’re getting to more places than ever before,” he added. The group’s actions received broad condemnation on popular snowmobile forum snowandmud. com. In a string devoted to the incident, an overwhelming majority of comments condemned the action. Some worried the incident would give all sledders a bad name. The ministry official asked that anyone with information about the incident call the Conservation Offices Report All Poachers and Polluters line at 1-877-952-7277.

Regional district criticized over airport fence ALEX COOPER

A local resident is seriously questioning the Columbia Shuswap Regional District's decision to block access to the Columbia River flats near the Revelstoke Airport. "The way they went ... about this makes you wonder if further actions to cut off access will happen just out of the blue," said Jim Maitre, who lives near the Airport. "They don't talk to anyone about it, there's no signs to indicate potential hazards for people running around the runway. They just arbitrarily closed access and there's no reason to think they won't close other access." Maitre was reacting to a decision by the CSRD to place a fence that would block access to the trail used to access the area. The CSRD, which operates the airport, said the action was being taken because of concerns that people and their pets accessing the runaway could conflict with aircraft taking off or landing at the airport.

The new fence will cut off access to the Columbia River Flats in the airport area. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review file photo

"We don't have any known instances of individuals interfering with air traffic but the hazard is there," said Loni Parker, the director for Area B of the CSRD. "Any time you have people and dogs alongside runways there's always an oportunity for a dog to go off and chase something onto the runway."

There was no public consultation done on the issue and residents were not notified of the changes. The CSRD sent out an announcement last Tuesday morning announcing the decision. "I expect we probably will have people calling us," said Parker. "We're prepared to answer their questions."

No serious injuries after avalanche Vernon Morning Star

Skiers were caught in an avalanche between Lumby and Revelstoke on Friday, Mar. 30. Police received a report just after 11 a.m. of skiers injured by an avalanche in the Monashee Mountains. “What is known is that a guide and a photographer were out with several clients,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson, adding the group was associated with Monashee Powder Snowcats. “They had been skiing in the area

when a natural avalanche started high in the mountains above them.” Two Monashee Powder Cats employees were caught in the slide. A guide and several clients were able to dig them out of the snow. “Two employees sustained non-life threatening injuries,” said Molendyk. “Both were flown by air ambulance to Revelstoke hospital for treatment. Both employees were examined treated and released from hospital.” The area could only be accessed by helicopter.

She recognized the area was popular but added, "It's also an airport. I don't know of any airports that aren't secured against the public going in or accessing the runways." The district said it considered placing a $100,000 fence alongside the south side of the runway but the cost was prohibitive. Instead it is

installing a smaller, $18,000 fence that would block the access path. The area is used by many people to walk their dogs, ride their bikes and for cross-country skiing, said Maitre. "I understand their need to have some sort of security out there but I think public education and consultation are in order out here," he said. "They seem to make these decisions in Salmon Arm with the help of other people and it doesn't seem to reflect the wishes of people around here." He said improved signage and enforcement would be a better solution than the fence. "Making it clear that if the airport manager catches anyone and their dog up there, they're going to be faced with a fine," he said. "If somebody needs to be made an example of for bad actions, then so be it. I agree that airport security is paramount."

Residents want consultation on airport fence Editor, Re: Fencing to be installed to block access to Revelstoke airport area wetlands,, News, Mar. 28 An open letter to Ms. Cathy Semchuk, CSRD SEP Assistant, ESS Director; Mr. Gary Holte, CSRD Engineering and Environmental Manager; Lonnie Parker, CSRD Area B Director Pursuant to the CSRD plan to eliminate access to the Columbia River Flats adjacent to Revelstoke Airport. I vigourously disagree with the decision to eliminate public access to the Columbia River flood plain adjacent to the Revelstoke Airport. This apparently arbitrary initiative in no way reflects the wishes of residents adjacent to the airport or the City of Revelstoke. The frequency with which taxpaying outdoor enthusiasts, naturalists, students, teachers, birders, hikers, runners, skiers, cyclists and their families use this access must be poorly understood by CSRD policy makers and the Airport Committee. While it may seem unnecessary complaining when other access points are available, it seems that other closures are entirely possible. Public engagement and education are rational first steps to avoid any further acrimony. Realizing the need for security of the runway, I would suggest clear signage that indicates stiff fines for anyone or their pets trespassing on the runway or within a reasonable distance to it. I urge you and your superiors to reconsider this unnecessary and soon to become unpopular restriction. Please consider arranging a public consultation at a suitable location (Revelstoke Flying Club or Rev-

FENCE WILL BLOCK OFF RESIDENTS’ RECREATION, BIKE ACCESS TO CITY Editor, Re: Fencing to be installed to block access to Revelstoke airport area wetlands,, News, Mar. 28 An open letter to Gary Holte, Manager of Environment and Engineering Services; Lonnie Parker, CSRD Area B Director I am sending this letter because I oppose your plans to try to block the trail that we use to access the Columbia River Flats near the airport. I am extremely disappointed at the lack of effort put in to working with the airport neighbourhood and other users of this area to come up with a plan to protect the security of the runway, and continue to allow access to the beauty of what we like to refer to as ‘our back yard’. This is an area that my family has enjoyed for 20 years, walking and biking, all without having to get in a car and drive anywhere. It is also a great place to launch a kayak or row boat when the water is high. Going down for a walk to the flats is a big

part of our recreational life and something we do on a daily basis at times. It is also a safe route to ride to town without being subjected to the traffic along Airport Way and Red Devil Hill. My dog and I were out there on the flats yesterday and again today, it was lovely. You need to realize the effect this would have on the families that live by the airport. It is obvious to me that the only way you can improve the security of your airport is to put up a fence along the runway and around your weather station equipment. Is it really $100,000 for just that amount of fencing? Maybe you should get a few different quotes. You already wasted money last time you tried to block access and had to remove the fencing because it affected the deer that also use that same route. Did you save that fencing? It could be reused in a more appropriate place. Is it really necessary to put up a fence with 3 strands of barbed wire at the top? I would think that a 4 or 5 foot fence would suffice to keep a dog out, and would result in considerable cost savings. The fact that there has never been an incident really makes me question why this is being done at all. Maybe you just need a fence around the weather station equipment. I am requesting that you set up a public meeting to discuss this issue so that we can all work together to find some solutions that will keep the trail accessible. I am sure that we can come up with something better than what you have suddenly announced. Renee Myers, Revelstoke

Don’t fence me in! The decision to fence off access to the Columbia Flats near the Revelstoke Airport is problematic in many ways – the main one being the lack of consultation with local stakeholders. Does it need to be said that residents don’t want to trade off their natural recreation spaces so that private airplane and jet owners can have a theoretically safer landing? It was clear from a Columbia-Shuswap Regional District media release announcing the decision that controversy was anticipated. If this was the case, then why not set up community meetings to discuss the issues? The dialogue that should have taken place in these kind of meetings is already turning up more creative solutions than just banning everyone from the area. What about fines for entering the airport zone? How about cheaper fences? What will the impact be on this wildlife corridor? What about the impact it will have on those who use the area to recreate on a regular basis? Does it even mesh with the City of Revelstoke’s new bridge and trails network plan? -- after all, the creation of the Illecillewaet pedestrian bridge now makes this route a viable alternative to Airport Way for cyclists for several months of the year. Although the CSRD made the announcement, they shouldn’t shoulder all of the blame for the lack of consultation. The City of Revelstoke also has a rep-


resentative on the Airport Committee. The airport and land surrounding it is a patchwork of jurisdiction shared by the two. The remaining representatives on that committee are ‘airport’ interests. It sounds a lot like the committee should invite more representatives from the surrounding neighbourhood to have their say. Perhaps better ‘solutions’ could be found with more input.


FLATS NEAR ILLECILLEWAET PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE NEED USE PLAN At the Revelstoke end of the Columbia Flats, the city has completed the Illecillewaet Pedestrian Bridge. No doubt many more cyclists and recreationalists will now use the bridge to access areas south of the river for walking, fishing, dog-walking, bird watching, cycling and more. The trail heading south along the old railway line is just another relatively well-kept Revelstoke secret that is soon to be wellknown now that the pedestrian bridge is there. So, what’s the plan for dealing with this influx of people to this environmentally-sensitive area? We’ve heard of the proposed trails network, but haven’t seen much in the way of details. The snow is melting. Now is a good time to meet these issues head on and develop responsible rules and guidelines for using this beautiful and delicate area.

Heritage Commission seeking to revitalize heritage thinking in Revelstoke ALEX COOPER

Efforts are underway to revitalize heritage planning in Revelstoke, with a workshop held at the community centre last Saturday the first step towards doing so. “I think it’s an important update to how we view heritage in Revelstoke in that we’re moving towards the values-based heritage decision making,” said assistant city planner Chris Selvig, who organized the workshop. About 20 people attended the workshop, which was led by Carla Jack and Judith Cook from the

here, and more. Each person was given the chance to answer each question and then put a blue dot next to answers they agreed with most. For examples, for the question, “What is unique about Revelstoke’s expressions of intellectual and cultural life?” The most popular answer was one that listed the number of museums, galleries and historic sites in the area. On why people want to live here, one person answered that Revelstoke was a friendly, welcoming community, with great lifestyle opportunities, a strong sense of community and fantas-

workshop. He said Revelstoke’s heritage is something youth and people new to the community should be thinking about. “It’s here because people before my generation thought about it, we’re thinking about it and by the time they get there, maybe it will be they’re turn to think about it for the next bunch of people that come here,” he said. Cook said websites, virtual tours and more should be used to get youth interested. “In a time when classrooms don’t have money to do field trips, they can still visit these places virtually.” The information from the workshop will now be brought

The attendees included three city councillors, most of the city’s heritage committee and several members of the public. The Times Review was not able to attend the workshop but we did speak to people afterwards. “These are important exercises for the community to build interest and get people thinking along the line that’s going to get us somewhere,” said Mike Dragani, the chair of the heritage committee. During the workshop, several questions were asked about Revelstoke’s intellectual, cultural life, social and community life; the importance of heritage conservation, why people live

After that, the important locations relating to the answers were indicated on a map of the city. “A lot of it is about really understanding the context about what that place means to the community, whether its social values, aesthetic, scientific, spiritual values or culutural values,” said Cook. Cook said she was impressed by the stock of heritage buildings and places here. “I think there’s a lot of potential to use these places as an asset for the community to enhance the quality of life and enhance the tourism experience,” she said. One thing Dragani noted was the lack of young people at the

to the heritage commission and then turned into a summary document. The commission is also planning on setting up a booth at the farmers market to seek more input from the committee. There is also talk of updating the city’s heritage strategy, which was last done in 1995, said Selvig. For Cathy English, the curator of the Revelstoke Museum, she thinks the workshop will help get heritage back in the public view. “I think sometimes there’s a tendency to become complacent and think we’ve done it all,” she said. “I think if we do that we’re in danger of losing things again.”

TOMO FUJIMURA IS BIG IN JAPAN I got a call from a Vancouver-based scout a couple of weeks ago looking for avalanche survivors for the TV Tokyo program Sekai de Ganbaru Nihonjin, a national program that documents the lives of Japanese working overseas at jobs they’re passionate about. Later

that week, a friend of a friend had a Japanese film crew taping as Revelstoke Mountain Resort patroller Tomo Fujimura helped with first aid after he blew out his shoulder in a skiing crash. I got a chance to speak with Fujimura at the multicultural event. He’s been featured on the show before and it’s paying off by putting Revelstoke on the map in Japan. He’s started his own tour company called Canadian Alps Tours and is seeing an uptick in interest from Japanese tourists and tour companies as a result of the show. Fujimura is also focused on bridging the gap between avalanche education and regulation between the two countries as he furthers his career in the direction of avalanche forecasting. The episode aired across Japan this past Sunday.

Residential water rates will increase by about 2% in 2012 to $328 with a similar percentage increase in commercial rates. Residential sewer rates will increase by about 3.7% in 2012 to $195 with a similar percentage increase for commercial customers. Garbage collection and disposal rates will remain at $108 and the tag-a-bag rate of $2 per bag will stay the same. There is a new fee this year for residential customers of $40 a year for recycling collection and disposal. Capital expenditures are estimated to be about $22.5 million over the five year period. Capital expenditures 2012 General Capital Fund Roads and other infrastructure Water Capital Fund Infrastructure upgrades

In 2012 expenditures are anticipated to be allocated as demonstrated in the following chart:

Some of the road projects that are scheduled for 2012-2016 include Hiob Road (Windsor to Dogwood), Benson (from 1st to Douglas), 1st Street (from Hanson to Benson), King Street (from 2nd to Douglas) and Victoria (from 8th to Mill). Other projects planned over the five years include further upgrades at the sewer treatment plant, the relocation of the sewer outflow from the Illecillewaet to the Columbia, a refit of the salt system at the aquatic centre and rehabilitation of the Court House roof dome.

8.6% 2.2% 3.3%

And the sources of funding for the above expenditures are projected as follows:

Where the money comes from ....

The City proposes borrowing about $14 million over the next five years to help finance some of its capital projects. This may be reduced to some extent if the city is able to generate sufficient surpluses over the term of the plan. It is anticipated that the City’s total long term debt will be approximately $26 million at the end of 2016 as can be seen from the following chart:

User fees - water and sewer Grants/Other Governments

0.9% 0.4% 8.0%

5.3% 7.3%



Debt proceeds DCC'S


Transfer from equity in capital assets Non-TCA funding



Other Transfers from reserves and surplus

Transfer from prior years' surplus

The budget has been balanced with a 2% property tax increase for each class for each year. General operating expenses are anticipated to increase by less than 1% in 2012 and by about 1% a year compounded over the term of the plan. As a result, the city should be able to generate surpluses over the next five years to provide additional funding for reserves and to reduce our dependency on borrowing for various projects.

The impact on Class 1 (homeowners) and Class 6 (businesses) of the above increase is demonstrated in the following table: Class 1



The following table shows the city’s anticipated resources available at the end of each fiscal year. The numbers are approximate and dependent on actual results:

The Class 2 rate is mandated by provincial regulation and the utility class is mostly CP Rail. Council is still in the process of deciding how property taxation will be divided up amongst the various classes. There are a variety of options open to Council which include reducing Class 4 taxation, keeping Class 6 taxation at the same level as in 2011 and increasing Class 1 taxation by more than 2% to compensate.



About $7 million of the additional borrowing is earmarked for sewer treatment plant expansion, the relocation of the sewer outflow to the Columbia River and the Downie force main replacement.

The style of music known as jazz manouche, or Gypsy jazz, cannot be talked about without mentioning Django Reinhardt. The French jazz guitar legend is regarded as the inventor of the genre and one of the great jazz innovators ever. Denis Chang was 18 when a friend recommended he listen to Reinhardt’s music. “I checked him out and I loved it,” Chang said. “It was very guitar oriented, there was a lot of energy. It mixed a lot of styles that I like, there was some rock elements, classical music, jazz, lots of different things.” Chang, now 29, is now the leader of his own band, the Denis Chang Manouche Quartet. Since his revelation more than a decade ago, he has played and studied alongside many of the world’s great jazz manouche guitarists. He has been dubbed the godfather of the Montreal jazz manouche scene – an accolade he said he is flattered by, though he’d rather not have any. He has also developed a following of his own, touring regularly and teaching classes and workshops on the art of manouche. “I really love sharing knowledge,” he said. “My father was a teacher so I guess it’s something I inherited. It’s something I’m very passionate about.” Chang’s biography cites influences ranging from Bach to George Benson to Michael Jackson. Growing up he also listened to a lot of rock, classical and world music, he said. Chang’s upcoming tour, which begins in Revelstoke, is being billed as “On the Road with Django Reinhardt,” but he said the songs will mostly be his

KIJHL must approve move from page 1 arrangement has been awkward at times. Kaler argues that a condition of the sale in 2006 included a clause that the team must remain in Revelstoke for 10 years -- until 2016 -- unless the society approved of the move. Whether that clause still exists or has bearing in the situation is unknown. The Revelstoke Grizzlies Society will hold its annual general meeting this Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m. at the Revelstoke Forum. Revelstoke History of Hockey president Dennis Berarducci was part of the society that brought the team to Revelstoke. He operates the history displays that adorn the Revelstoke Forum. “I think it’s a sad day in Revelstoke to move a Junior B team,” Berarducci said. “People who worked so hard to move the team here -- it’s a direct slap in the face to the original society that brought that team here. “It’s going to hurt minor hockey -- it’s going to hurt everything,” he said.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies shake hands with the Sicamous Eagles early in the morning hours after an avalanche-delayed midnight-start game 7 in their round 1 playoff defeat in the 2011/12 season. This could be the last time the team takes to the ice in Revelstoke. Revelstoke Times Review

Reel Paddling Film Fest features Pipedreams Project AARON ORLANDO

Revelstoke audiences will be treated to an encore presentation of Pipedreams Project, the kayaking film that won the Grand Prize and Audience Choice awards at the 2012 Revelstoke Mountain Roots Film Festival earlier this year. It’s one of many films on display as part of the annual film festival that focuses on any paddle-powered vessel. The film features kayak activists who travel from Kitimat to Vancouver via the inside passage to express their opposition to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline. Faroe Des Roches was one of three kayakers featured in the three-month voyage. It was the Vancouver-based kayak instructor’s first documentary. “It taught me just how amazing this coast is,” Des Roches says of the trip. “It taught me about the people who live along the coast.” Team members Ryan Vandecasteyen and Curtis White were motivated by their opposition to the pipeline. They felt left out of the decision-making process and sought a way in. All kayakers, the voyage was a way to show the unseen wilderness and diverse communities at stake in the area to audiences from a unique perspective.

“We left as co-workers and came back as friends,” Des Roches said of the journey. She says the film has served as another voice of protest over the pipeline and has served to consolidate opposition. “I think it also opens up discussion around how this decision is being made.” She admits she worries that the message may only be getting to those who have been converted in opposition. Although she feels alternative media projects like this are a powerful new tool, she feels mainstream media reporting on issue like these still hold considerable influence over populist opinions. She encourages everyone interested in the project to come see fort themselves a unique take on the beauty of the region portrayed in the film. Disclosure: Curtis White is author Aaron Orlando’s first cousin.

TRACING THE COLUMBIA Tracing the Columbia follows the journey of a team of canoeists who in 2011 journeyed the entire length of the Columbia River from its headwaters in the East Kootenay to its mouth in Oregon. Along the way, they travelled past Revelstoke. It’s one of many films featured at the festival. They include: So Fine, Paddle to the

MLA: Jumbo Glacier decision erodes democracy NORM MACDONALD MLA Report

One of the biggest local stories since my last MLA report has to be the BC Liberal government’s decision to give Jumbo Glacier Resort the green light. This is just one more example of this government’s determination to remove from local residents the ability to make decisions for ourselves. One of the most telling aspects of the announcement by Minister of Forests Steve Thomson was where they decided to hold the press confer-

ence. If this was a good news story, as the government likes to claim, they would have made the announcement a big media event in the community that will be most affected by the development. But instead of a big announcement in Invermere, the government decided to hold this press conference in Victoria, 921 kilometres away. In a move that illustrated more of a colonial attitude than a commitment to democracy, the BC Liberal government made a decision that completely ignored the stated will of local residents.

Fa th n o eW f eek

OP INION In the more than 20 years that have passed since the resort development in the Jumbo Valley was first proposed, local residents have used every tool provided to them to state their opposition. They participated in the Environmental Assessment process, they wrote letters and they signed petitions. In every instance, it was clear that the majority of residents oppose the resort development. But that opposition has fallen on deaf ears. With the

announcement of the approval of the Master Development Agreement for Jumbo Glacier Resort this government has shown that it has no respect for local residents’ rights to make decisions for themselves. And this is the key reason that the approval of Jumbo Glacier Resort has raised hackles across the Interior of British Columbia. Whether or not people think that Jumbo Glacier Resort is a good idea, people in rural British Columbia absolutely reject the premise that a few people in Victoria can make better decisions about

our land than we can. If we allow the government to push through the development of Jumbo Glacier Resort against our will, we are not only allowing the giveaway of another one of British Columbia’s wild places, we are setting the standard for democracy in this province. British Columbians need to continue to say no; not just to this misguided decision but to the erosion of our democracy. Norm Macdonald (NDP) is the MLA for Columbia River - Revelstoke

In the coming weeks signs will be posted and fencing installed to prohibit unauthorized access for persons to walk through the riparian area adjacent to the runway at the Revelstoke Airport. There are concerns of persons and/or their pets accessing the runway and a possible conflict with aircraft taking off or landing at the airport. Also, restricting persons from this sensitive riparian area will be beneficial to the environment. The Revelstoke Airport Committee (Committee) looked at the option to install a chain link fence parallel to the runway to provide a physical barrier to persons and animals from the runway and aircraft activity. The cost of a fence is over $100,000, and in light of a long list of costly upgrades and improvements that are needed at the airport, the Committee did not support this option. The Committee thanks the public for its cooperation. For more information, please contact: Mr. Gary Holte Manager, Environment and Engineering Services Phone: 250 833 5935

Drew Derosier the final medal bearer in Rick Hansen relay ALEX COOPER

As far he knows, Drew Derosier is the first kid to grow up in Revelstoke in a wheelchair. The 16-yearold grade 10 student at Revelstoke Secondary School has cerebral palsy, which has kept him in a wheelchair since he was born. “It’s the only thing I’ve ever known,” he said. “It’s been pretty good for me but there’s some big challenges I have to go through.” Derosier experienced a brain hemorrhage when he was born that damaged the part of the brain that communicates with his legs. As a result, he is unable to walk. On Tuesday, Apr. 10, he will be the final medal bearer when the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay comes to Revelstoke. The relay is being held in honour of Hansen’s 1987 Man-in-Motion world tour, in which he circumnavigated the globe in a wheelchair to raise money for spinal cord research. Derosier will carry the medal being used in the relay into Grizzly Plaza during the Revelstoke leg of the tour. Despite the obvious challenges of growing up in a wheelchair, Derosier’s outlook on life is very positive and inspiring. “I really don’t worry about what I can’t do,” he said. “There’s no use in doing that because all that really does is make you sad. I try to keep a positive outlook and do what I can.” What he does do is sit-skiing at Silver Star resort, where they have an adaptive skiing program; biking with his father Cliff on his hand-pedalled bicycle, swimming at the aquatic centre, playing video games and watching hockey. As Brenda Diebert told me and I found out, he also has a great sense of humour. “When I get put under medication, I’ll be funnier,” said Derosier. “My history of medication has some pretty funny stories.” When asked about the challenges in every-day life, Derosier mentioned he couldn’t get in and out of bed without help. He also has trouble getting around in snowy Revelstoke. At the same time, he had good things to say about the new high school, especially compared to the old one. “The new school I’ve been enjoying,” he said. “I do have to say that was definitely a good investment. If I had to go through that crappy old school until grade 12, I wouldn’t be very happy.” Derosier has undergone surgery five times and he’s about to experience a sixth when he travels to the Shriner’s Hospital in Portland, Or., next month for spinal fusion surgery. Compounding his issue, Derosier has

lordosis, a condition that has given him a S-shaped spine and forces him to sit in a specially modified wheelchair. “I am nervous about the surgery, like anyone, but it’s something you have to go through,” he said. Derosier’s dream is to become a hockey play-by-play man. It’s been a dream of his since he was five and he’s grown up doing his own play-byplay while watching hockey games. A huge Canucks fan, he has been fortunate to attend several games in Vancouver. I asked Derosier if he ever hoped to get out of a wheelchair. He said he’d been asked the same question by his doctor. “I’m good either way. If I live in a chair, I’ll live in a chair. If I walk, I walk,” he said, adding that he expects to stay in a chair barring future scientific advances. He said his main goal is to be able to take care of himself in his day-today life. As he put it – be able to get in and out of bed and in and out of his sports car without help. “With all the medical stuff I’ve had to endure over the years – I’ve had to go through a lot of pain and go through a lot of things – but you just have to get past them and try to have fun with the life you have because you’re only alive for so long.” *** The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay is arriving in Revelstoke on Tuesday, Apr. 10. It will make a 30 minute sponsor stop at McDonald’s at 3:37 p.m. After that, the relay will head to the community centre for a community stop at 4:41 p.m.. The relay is scheduled to arrive in Grizzly Plaza at 5 p.m. Derosier will be the final medal bearer in the relay. There will be speeches, a singing of O Canada, music and more when the relay arrives in the plaza. There are also plans to have musicians play on street corners to provide atmosphere during the relay. On Apr. 11, the relay will start up again with a rally at Revelstoke Secondary School at 9:30 a.m. It will then hit the road towards Golden. Rick Hansen’s appearance has not been confirmed. Derosier said he is hoping to meet him. “If not, it’s not big deal but I’m still honoured to do this,” he said. “I can’t believe I was chosen, this is a big thing for me.” The other medal bearers taking part in the relay are Chris Ball, Kendra Blakely, Talia Camozzi, Pauline Hunt, Raine Carnegie, Dzidra Gallicano, Simon Brittin, Scott Guthrie, Maria Speerbrecker, Kees Vandermeer, Drew Derosier, Emily Suchy, Laura Deslaurier, Gina Cinelli, Todd Hicks, Kitt Redhead and Jonah Deschamps.

Drew Derosier is excited at the possibility of meeting Rick Hansen, though if that doesn’t happen, he’s still honoured to take part in the Rick Hansen relay this coming Tuesday. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

Max Scharf, Callum Hicks reach podium at Okanagan Zone Finals at RMR Contributed by the Revelstoke Ski Club

This past weekend the Revelstoke Ski Club and Revelstoke Mountain Resort hosted alpine racers from across the Okanagan as well as competitors from the Hemlock Ski Club and the Windermere Valley Ski Club for the Okanagan zone finals. With more than 150 racers, the weekend was busy and fun filled. The lower portion of Hollywood was the run of choice for slalom on Saturday. The volunteers loaded the lifts early to prepare the track for the K2 racers who were scheduled to run first. Max Scharf of Revelstoke completed two clean runs to earn the gold medal, with team-mate Callum Hicks earning the bronze. The 9- & 10-year-olds made their first experience at a Kinder level race and shared the K1 course. In the E2 category Jenna Knight topped the Revelstoke girls with a 5th place and Aleks Klassen the boys with a 5th finish as well.

Sunday’s event was all about fun as racers had the opportunity to go head to head in the dual paneled slalom course. The action was exciting as racers ran each of the two courses against an opponent for a combined timed finish. Top finishes again included Jenna Knight and Aleks Klassen each walking away with silver medals and Callum Hicks tying for first place with Ryan Moffat of Kelowna. Complete Revelstoke results are as follows: E2 girls Saturday Slalom: Jenna Knight: 5th; Sophia Humphreys: 6th; Hannah Vickers: 7th; Caitlyn Vopni: DSQ Sunday Dual Slalom: Jenna Knight: 2nd; Caitlin Vopni: 6th; Sophia Humphreys: 7th; Hannah Vickers: 11th E2 boys Saturday Slalom: Aleks Klassen: 5th; John Sidjak: 11th; Nolan Gale: 14th; Erik Brosch: 16th; Owden TarankoGoodrider: 17th; Colm Molder: DSQ Sunday Dual Slalom: Aleks Klassen: 2nd; Colm Molder:

The Revelstoke Snowmobile Club is hosting its first ever Vintage Snowmobile Ride this Saturday, April 7. Vintage, in this case, being snowmobiles more than 15 years old. Organizer Dusty Veideman said he is hoping to get some truly vintage models to come out. The ride will start at 9 a.m. at the Boulder Mountain parking lot (or nearby, depending on snow levels at the trail head) and go from there to the cabin, where there will be a show and shine and poker ride. It is $30 to enter, which includes a trail pass and your first poker card. Pictured above is a Revelstoke Museum and Archives photo from the Earle & Estelle Dickey collection that appeared in the museum’s recent Reflections book, which is available for sale at the Revelstoke Museum. The caption read: Qualified Approval of Louie Bergen’s new motorized toboggan is given by Angus Beaton, old-time dog-team driver. He is shown wishing Bergen luck at start of 100-mile trip over snow-swept Big Bend Highway to reach his auto camp at Boat Encampment, north of Revelstoke. Earle Dickey took promotional photos and wrote promotional photos on behalf of the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce. The following story from 1948 in the Vancouver Sun was the result of his efforts to promote Revelstoke through the media: Mechanized ‘Dogs’ Put Louie Ahead. Special to the Vancouver Sun. Revelstoke, February 21. The hazards of winter motoring can’t stop Louie Bergen. Louie, who runs the auto camp at Boat Encampment, 100 miles north on the snowed-in Big Bend Highway, couldn’t wait for reopening of the road this spring, so he started out Thursday on his new 25-horsepower motor toboggan. Joe Findler, a logger, braved the journey with him on the 12-foot toboggan which gives no protection from the weather except a windshield. Barring snowslides or unforeseen difficulties, they expected to reach Boat Encampment without trouble. Berger bought the auto camp in 1946, and stayed there that winter with his wife. During their sojourn in the winter wilderness they had an occasional visit from trappers, but saw more moose and caribou than humans, one day witnessing the killing of a moose by a wolf. Now they have the toboggan for emergencies, they anticipate spending winters at the camp again. Local trappers and prospectors have been viewing the mechanized toboggan critically. Angus Beaton, who drove dog teams along the Skeena River near Hazelton during the Grand Trunk construction days, says he would rather ride behind a team of dogs.

Don’t be fooled, Capricorn. Attendance is optional. If you can fit it into your schedule, go. If not, don’t. A young friend makes an unusual proposal.

Courage waning, Aquarius? Look to a mentor to get you back on track. A health crisis eases with a new mode of treatment. Celebrate with friends.

Feeling adventurous, Pisces? Good. You’re about to be whisked away on the trip of a lifetime. The key to a financial dilemma lies with an acquaintance.

Been there, done that, Cancer. Look for a different avenue. Making time for an old friend proves beneficial. You raise their spirits and they let you in on a secret.

The seeds you planted take root, and you end up with more helpers than you can count. Learn to delegate, Leo, and the event will go off without a hitch.

Passing the buck is not the answer, Virgo. Step up to the plate, and with the right preparation, you’ll hit one out of the park for sure. Batter up!

March 21– April 19

Concerns grow over a relative’s situation. The answer is clear, but no amount of prodding will turn that resolution into reality, so save your energy for more important things, Aries.

Tempers flare. Be careful what you say, Taurus. You don’t want to add fuel to the fire with so many looking on. A surprise gift gets the weekend off right.

A home improvement project begins, and things quickly escalate out of control. Scale back your plans, Libra, and you might just have the funds for a pro.

Way to go, Scorpio. You wrap up a project just in time for a new one, which you tackle with finesse. Praise comes from all around. A promotion could be in order.

Snap out of it, Sagittarius. Sure, there are wrinkles due to your inexperience, but everything will be smoothed out in the end. A deadline is met.
