Nelson’s new jail

By Becker Nelson

The City of Nelson could benefit from the Conservatives new crime bill. Under the bill, the government is looking into privatization of some prison services. Last month, there was a confidential meeting with the Ministry of Penal Confinement (MPC) in Nelson. They concluded that Nelson’s Civic Centre would be appropriate place for a trial experiment as a minimum security prison. Not only has the Ministry been looking at the Civic, but there has been a serious proposal from a private interest. Nelson City Council has been meeting in camera and negotiating with the proposer.

The private interest would gut the whole building and the offices and leasers would move out. With the additional income, the City will have the ability to build a new community complex to house private clubs that are currently in the Civic Centre, like Glacier Gymnastics and the Dance Umbrella. The new building would be on top of the existing Youth Centre and by adding another three stories, everyone can be accommodated. The existing Nelson City police station does have cells, yet this new development would free those cells for further expansion. The City is considering a proposal from the Chess Club. If they are successful in moving

into the building with the Library and the Police Station, it could now be called the “The Books, Crooks and Rooks Building”. “The Civic Centre could not look more like a prison than it already does” states Under Secretary Phil Emmup of the MPC. Emmup continues, “No windows, big flat walls, it is already hard to get out of. It would not need a lot of improvements.” The Express Update has heard through an anonymous source that Mayor John Dooley was heard in the men’s room at City Hall to say, “Having a prison in Nelson could be a good homegrown solution to all the local crime that is

committed. We could actually create the first 100 mile, self sustainable prison!” The new minimum security prison would be an experiment with low risk, non-violent criminals. The clients, (the term “inmates” is now considered politically incorrect) would have to do volunteer service within the community. John Alton from the EcoSociety said “We always need more troublmakers in the society, volunteerism helps to run this community. We are open to anyone who is interested.” Constuction is expected to start 2020. For furthur details on this story see Publisher’s note on page 6.

Phone fraud watch Salmo RCMP are investigating an attempted fraud regarding a suspicious phone call to a Salmo resident. The caller pretended to be the grand-daughter of the Salmo resident and claimed to have been involved in an impaired accident in Montreal, Quebec. The caller requested $2,500.00 be transferred to a third party via Western Union for the grand daughter’s legal fees lest she spend the weekend in jail. The story was quickly identified as false and no monies were transferred. Internet queries of the call back number 514-365-3558 show this scam has been circulating for several years. It is unknown how the caller obtained the information she had for the Salmo resident. Salmo RCMP remind the general public to hang up and dial *57 immediately after receiving suspicious phone calls of a serious nature. This will activate a call trace and the information can be available to law enforcement for further investigation. Cpl Barry Graham Salmo RCMP 250-357-2212

Public disturbance On Tuesday, March 20, at 11 a.m. Nelson Police received a report of a male causing a disturbance at a local homeless centre. According to witnesses the man had been refused entry into the centre and began yelling and swearing at the volunteers who became fearful of the individual. When officers arrived at the downtown location they found the 21-year old-transient male still yelling and swearing. Police attempted to calm the suspect down but he refused to comply and was subsequently arrested. The suspect, who is well known to police, was detained briefly at Nelson Police cells and released on conditions not to attend the homeless centre. He will appear in Nelson Provincial Court on June 5, 2012, charged with resisting arrest and causing a disturbance. Howie Grant, Sergeant Nelson Police Department 250-354-3919

Earth Matters ECO Centre closes The Earth Matters ECO Centre, a social enterprise of Nelson CARES Society, has officially closed its doors. Earth Matters will remain as an active program of Nelson CARES Society, and currently maintains two community gardens, a thriving recycling pick-up service and develops educational community projects. “We came to a point where the ECO Centre was unable to sustain itself without additional funding. We are happy about the great work that happened at the ECO Centre, such as our retail training program and last year’s compost educa-

tion project. We are very thankful for the support we received. Now, we look forward to developing more exciting educational programs and ensuring the success of our current programs, like our newly expanded recycling pick up service,” comments Alison Roy, Manager of Earth Matters. This summer, Earth Matters plans to offer composting information and support to the community at the various Nelson markets.

New director for Nelson outdoor markets

Jesse R. Woodward will be Nelson’s outdoor markets director

The West Kootenay EcoSociety is pleased to announce that they have hired a new Markets Director, Jesse R. Woodward, for the 2012 season of Nelson’s fabulous outdoor markets. Jesse has just returned to Nelson after completing his Masters of Sustainable Environmental Management at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. Jesse was raised on a small farm in the Slocan Valley and has lived, off and on, in the Nelson area for most of his life. “I’m very excited to have been hired for this position, and I look forward to applying the many skills that I acquired while completing my Master’s

degree,” said Woodward. “I want nothing else but to make the EcoSociety’s outdoor markets the best that they can be, both for the community and the environment.” TheWest Kootenay EcoSociety coordinates and runs both the Cottonwood Falls and the Downtown street markets. Cottonwood Falls market runs every Saturday from May 19 through to October 27, and the Downtown market runs Wednesdays from June 13 thru to September 26. Woodward and the EcoSociety will also stage the Friday night Market Fest, an event with over 100 vendors, on three blocks of Baker on June 29, July 27, and August 24.

Why do Kootenay lake levels fluctuate throughout the year? (This column was originally published in the Spring of 2005.) dr. science Christine Humphries

I spoke to Wally Koschik, Director of FortisBC Power Supply Department to ask him why Kootenay Lake levels fluctuate. He told me that fluctuating lake levels are due to the management strategies of Canadian and American power generation companies who operate dams along the Kootenay River as it flows through parts of British Columbia, Montana, and Idaho. The Libby dam in Montana and the BC Hydro Duncan dam control the inflow into Kootenay lake while the outflow is controlled by the FortisBC Corra Linn dam and the BC

Hydro Kootenay Canal plant. According to statistics that I found on the FortisBC website, from 1973 to 2002 the average change in elevation of the lake, as measured from a gauge installed at Queens Bay in the main lake, has been 9.6 feet. Lake levels are constant from about August to December and gradually decrease during the winter, hitting lowest levels in April. This gradual decline in water levels is due to the lake draining and the fact that winter precipitation is kept in the snowpack until the Spring thaw. During the Spring runoff, which usually starts in May and lasts until July, the power plants operate at maximum capacity. In fact, there is so

much water during the run-off that some of the water is stored at the Duncan and Libby dams for use later in the season. This strategy helps the power companies equalize power production so that they can meet high energy demands in the winter even though there is less inflow into the lake. The utility companies must also comply with water quality and quantity regulations which are governed by the International Joint Commission (IJC). The IJC acts as an impartial body to prevent and resolve disputes between companies in Canada and the United States that may have competing interests in water usage.

Opinion&Editorial Publisher’s note

April Fools! Yes, our front page story about the Civic Centre being turned into a prison was false. But it could be true. In the past, this city has taken community facilities out of general public use and given them to either private groups or commercial interests. We have lost the small rink to a commercial interest and the old museum on Nelson Avenue is now used for storage. Most critically, we lost the badminton hall. It was a place all could

Gotchah!

rent for various events and community dances. I understand there is a need in the community for various services offered by our various clubs. What is the city’s responsibility to those groups? How can the city help find resources for them without subtracting venues from general community use? There is a solution. We must unite in our community vision. A good way to start this is by forming a group of concerned citizens to look at cultural and recreational vacuums in our community. Some ground work has already been done. I could call this group, “The Friends of the Civic.” This group, while it may be made up of various interest

Updates from the house It has been a very interesting few weeks in the BC Legislature! A cabinet minister resigned leaking Michelle Mungal for a confidenMLA: Nelson/Creston tial email to a Liberal donor; former cabinet minister and current MLA for Abbotsford John Van Dongen left the Liberals to join the BC Conservatives; he is joined by a former Liberal candidate; the Liberals go against twenty years of the Kootenay’s opposition to Jumbo Glacier Resort; and all 25 presidents of public post-secondary institutions release a letter they wrote to the Minister of Advanced Education stating her cuts to the sector are “unrealistic” and that she is unaware of what is happening on the ground. All of this shows just how much the Liberals are out of touch with British Columbians. I’ve been asked by reporters, if all I need to do now is sit back and watch the Liberals implode as support for the NDP increases in the

polls. The truth is that I would never sit back. Rather, I regularly rise in the House to hold the Liberals accountable for their choices and actions, present positive solutions for a strong BC, and ensure that Nelson-Creston citizens are being heard. Lately, I’ve been doing double time in my critic role for Advanced Education. The leaked email mentioned above was meant for the Minister of Advanced Education. It contained specific questions about the Liberal donor who eventually received the email from the Minister of State for Multiculturalism. This scandal is far from over, so I am speaking in the House almost daily as I work to get answers for British Columbians. With the recent decision on Jumbo, I’m also working to get a full understanding of next steps for this proposed resort so that the public knows where they can be involved and have their voice heard. Soon, I will be meeting with Ministry staff, and will be able to share that with you. The House is bursting with all kinds of activity these days, so stay tuned.

This group must have a city counsellor representative on it to ensure good communication and that the reality of dreams meets the reality of practicality. We must help the city with both vision and ongoing support which may include some fundraising events. If you ask people what they like about this area, many will say, “the lifestyle.” With a united vision, we can maintain and improve upon our existing joy of life. We hope that our little joke will serve as a notice and stimulus for discussion. We should not give our community facilities to privatization.

We asked our readers if they were in favour of the Jumbo Glacier Resort approval

10% said YES and 90% said NO

FOR JUMBO

I am so tired of people trying to keep these ‘hidden gems’ to themselves. The people who live in the Kootenay areas of BC need all the help they can get when it comes to tourism. If there is no tourism (or industry {ie:mining, logging, etc}) in the area; what exactly is keeping people in the area. I know I am from a small town where everyone is so against tourism. Sad. Now all the younger people have to move to the coast or other provinces just to get a paycheck. I am in favour of Jumbo. Way to go for not giving up hope!!! THE apathy in voting is giving us the governments we deserve... none of us could complain about it. The majority did not go out to vote. RESORTS are required to meet environmental standards. If the standards are not protecting what is to be protected, then this is where people should focus their attenton.

AS a former tree planter, I have been to the Jumbo Glacier. Have you ever been to a logging camp? I don’t recall the grizzely bears objecting to that! Where is your house built? What did the bears who lived there think of that? Have you ever been to Sun Peaks Resort? it is basically in the middle of nowhere, same with Big White. These resorts are high end enterprizes and are very expensive and why not? These resorts provide decent, well paid work. As long as this kind of thing is kept within reason bring it on. FINALLY a decision after over 20 years and both bears are going to be protected. THERE wasn’t any environmental argument for the resort. No economic argument for the resort. No political argument for the resort. YES, but let the rich pay for it and just leave taxpayers out of it, including tax credits and deductions.

AGAINST JUMBO

IT seems that this fundamentalist capitalist government has a mind to develop Beautiful B.C. to within an inch of it’s life in spite of the majority. I submit The Enbridge pipeline which the Feds have decided to force on us, Site C dam which the Provincials have decided to force upon the majority, and now the Jumbo resort a proposal that the majority of Kootenay residents have been against from day 1. What happened to Democracy? They are destroying our beautiful province. I am angry and stunned that this happened. It makes no sense from an environmental standpoint and even less so from an economical standpoint. And how was it kept so quiet until the morning of the vote? AFTER 20 years of the public fighting this, it is extremely disheartening that the government has said to us “We don’t care what you want, and no matter how loudly you raise your voices, we won’t listen!”.

DOES this world really need another fancy, expensive ski resort for the wealthy at the cost of yet more of our irreplaceable natural wilderness? THIS is a Real Estate development. Putting Real Estate in prime grizzly habitat is beyond stupid. THIS will change my vote in the next provincial election...the government has sold out Mother Nature here! THIS is a tragedy! THE approval of this resort sickens me. YOU can only destroy a beautiful thing once. Sure it will create jobs, but why not put the money into the environment, and create jobs that way? IT just shows that development comes first in BC JUMBO resort is a bad idea founded upon some rich peoples’ fantasy of a playground for them and their elitist friends

I can’t believe it. Our government may be ‘liberal’ in name but it’s controlled by big business and has no regard for the common people. Big contracts for big businesses during the Olympics, big pay raises for politicians, and now this for a giant company to the detriment of our local people and environment ends up costing the taxpayers way too much. Compare that free spending to the destruction of departments that police the environment, cutbacks to health and education..... I could go on and on but everyone knows what they’ve done. WE have already had to struggle to save the deer and now they are taking away so much more land belonging to our wildlife?? THIS DECISION IS WRONG!!!! IT makes a mockery of “Public process and protest!!” THIS is theft, not tourism. Especially Kootenaystyle eco-tourism. “The law locks up both man and woman who steals the goose from the common but lets the greater felon loose. Who steals the common from the goose.” (anon) Why should the 1% own the world’s prettiest places? PROTECT Democracy, the environment, the economy, and save millions of taxpayer dollars, KEEP IT WILD! IT gives me a sick feeling to think that a resort in the Jumbo area will do nothing but ruin the natural beauty of the area. Why not build the resort in the valley at Invermere

DISAPPOINTED in Liberal Government for approving this. NEVAH!! BC does not need another ski resort especially in one of the only interior rainforests left on the planet! It is a very sad thing, and is yet another example of greed and power. WE MUST cease all destruction of our land base, our home, and live in sustainable harmony with it! UN-NEEDED ski area will destroy beautiful back country area. It will likely fail and taxpayers will be left with the clean-up, which the government will procrastinate about, so the beauty will be spoiled by rusting trams & crumbling condos. DISAPPOINTING and short-sighted. Seems counter-intuitive given the state of global warming. IT’S unnecessary development of pristine wilderness, and by the time it’s built there may not be much snow falling during the ski season - Panorama mountain resort currently has had trouble for some years. IT’S an insult to local east koot residents. NOTHING but a land grab, just plain frivolous. I am disappointed in our elected representatives for ignoring the public voice... again. I don’t think this current Government really understands what “going green” is all about. This is a Jumbosized mistake.

COMPLETELY saddened by this decision made by those far removed from its consequences. IT’S not worth it. Why after 20 years of fighting with the people they have to push it still. If something is pushed against and strongly for 20 years it means it’s not wanted. I’ve had enough. ABSOLUTELY not! I believe that the public is strongly opposed to the proposed resort and that the government should do its job and LISTEN to the people. THIS isn’t about local economics. This is foreign greed and investment. IT is a ridiculous idea.... there is no market demand for it and the road alone will cost the taxpayers billions to build and maintain. IT’S a shame when democracy and the voice of the majority is ignored. I am majorly disappointed about this decision. Let’s keep up the pressure to challenge it. Our family spent four nights sleeping out under the stars & Northern Lights display up at the Jumbo Pass years ago & appreciate its wild beauty that needs to be left alone. JUMBO should be left alone. Grizzly habitat is dwindling as it is and the bears will not know where the ski boundaries are. Let all the Kootenay peoples decide this, not Victoria, or for that matter, Invermere. I am very disappointed in the Province’s decision, especially in Mr. Thomson’s.

BUILDING a resort on Jumbo is probably the worst idea I’ve heard of. First of all, it shows that democracy is NOT alive and well. The majority of our residents do not want Jumbo, but our provincial government still favoured the needs and wants of a corporation instead of it’s people (surprise surprise). Its a complete disrespect for the Ktunaxa as Jumbo is part of their traditional lands, and it’s also just a ridiculous business plan. Why would you build a resort on a glacier when glaciers are melting at an exceeding rate all around the world? BRILLIANT! It’s also complete nonsense that it’ll bring more business and jobs to the valley. Most resorts prefer to hire international employees or seasonal staff from out of province because they don’t have to pay them long term benefits, and they’re more attractive for the resorts image. We already have a ridiculous amount of ski hills within hours of Jumbo, all of which are suffering. How will this help? WHISTLER is struggling. Panorama is next door. The high-end skiing industry has a finite number of wealthy people or families who can afford the prices of high-end resorts.. It is in the middle of grizzly bear territory which should be preserved. It is absolutely the wrong-headed decision made by a revenue-challenged government who are long past their stale date. I think all of us should stand up for ourselves at the thought of a penny of taxpayer dollars going into creating a town site.

GIVEN the economic challenges this project should never receive government financial support. I can not help but express my extreme opposition towards this project. A project that I can only describe as being built on false promises of economic growth and sustainability at the expense of the region’s surrounding tourism industry, wildlife, and natural beauty. For 20 years, the residents of East Kootenay have been fighting against this proposed resort. We have fought, and won for our right to make this decision local, only to have it taken away from us. We have become informed of new studies on the impacts of global warming on our receding glaciers, new research on our local grizzly populations, and new information regarding potential threats to our watersheds. We have had to deal with a struggling ski industry with hills already unable to operate at full capacity; a ski industry that now makes regular practice of outsourcing minimum wage jobs to reduce their costs. For 20 years, we have presented the facts; we are not in favor of Oberto Oberti’s vision of Jumbo Glacier Resort. KEEP JUMBO WILD!!! I was very disgusted and terribly sad by the news but I think that it is not over and might bring more people together to rally and camp out there to contest. I think we are up for a revolution. THIS government doesn’t seem to care about the environment !!!!!!!!!!!!!

POLITIANS once again being politians... THESE communities need real jobs not part time, minimum wage ‘liftie’ jobs. Construction will last a few years at best and then they’re gone. Last but not least, has anyone noticed that the glaciers are melting fast enough without being skied on year round? Short-sighted nonsense is all this is. THIS government has no ligitimacy. Election now! LET’S show the government that the people in the Kootenays can’t be bullied. WHEN will humans ever learn to leave things alone!! LIVED in Nelson my whole life and I am an expert skier who works in the industry. There is no need for another ski resort while other resorts in the area are not even running at capacity. GET out and vote in the next provincial election, people. That’s the only way we can get this government out and get a more reasonable, honest government in. It’s only going to get worse. I have been to Jumbo. this is deep in the heart of some of our last wilderness. Lets keep it wild! FROM an economic standpoint it doesn’t make sense to me. Why would the province approve a third ski resort in 10 years (Kicking Horse, Revelstoke) during the worst real estate market in recent memory? IT’S a travesty. If we are a democracy, how come so many people are being ignored?

WHY is it the government doesn’t listen to the people? JUMBO should remain wild. WE need wild places and animals more than we need another under-utilized ski resort...... I SAY NO TO JUMBO RESORT JUMBO Resort Approval is another case of BC Liberals selling off BC environment to the exclusive benefit of their big business backers. TRAITORS to the grizzly bears!!! ABSOLUTELY not. It’s an outrageously stupid idea which makes money for the rich and greedy. Get out of our wilderness! THIS resort proposal is not enjoyment of our back country wild lands, or what is best for our local residents and wildlife. It is an exploitation for the sake of real estate development for the benefit of a few with little regard for the short or long term impact on our wilderness areas. Shame on the decision makers who have given away our public land that they were supposed to be care-takers of, for the greater public good. THE environment and democracy need to be respected. THE number of skiers is reported to be decreasing as the baby boomer wave ages..... many existing hills are struggling... we do not need to create such a huge impact on a remote area for the benefit of few..... the impact far outweighs the benefits.

I believe the decision shows incredible near-sightedness. Even ignoring climate change and the impact on animal populations, the decision to approve makes little sense. There are ample skiing opportunities, both resort and backcountry, nearby. The idea of plunking a nearly 7000 bed village in this area along with attendant lifts and gondolas is folly. A proposal that caters to an exclusive, wealthy clientele while creating few long term, high-paying and lasting jobs flies in the face of the wishes of most locals and makes little sense. The government should recognize the many negatives versus the minimal positives and be prepared to compensate the proponent while rejecting the idea with finality. A white elephant not unlike the Montreal Olympic Stadium is looming with this decision. THE province does not need another resort when existing resorts have ample capacity for expansion to serve the skier market. The location is too environmentally disruptive. THE last thing we need in this province is another ski resort. A number of existing ski hills are already struggling. Adding one more makes no sense. I don’t get it. The ski resort industry is not growing.This beautiful area will be spoiled. The Grizzly bear management plan??.. How do you exactly manage grizzly bears when you ‘plop’ a ski resort down in the middle of their home? Talk about a set-up for wildlife/man conflict!

Gwen Elizabeth Kalyniuk (nee Brown) Gwen Elizabeth Kalyniuk (nee Brown) of Nelson, British Columbia passed away suddenly on March 15, 2012 Gwen was born on Chatham, Ontario on May 10, 1955 and was raised on the family farm in Tilbury East Township and later Ridgetown, ON. She graduated from Ridgetown District High School and went on to receive her Degree in Nursing from McMaster University in Hamilton. After graduation, Gwen moved to Nelson, British Columbia with her dear friends where she pursued her career for over 30 years in obstetrics nursing and the field of neo- and post – natal care. Her greatest accomplishment was raising two wonderful children, Troy and Julia with whom she shared a close relationship. For the past several years Gwen devoted her time to the Kootenay Animal Assistance Program Society (KAAP), volunteering her time and her home fostering cats and making her famous felted catnip mice to raise money for the shelter. Gwen has always been active in her community whether it was her concerns about health care, trying to have a positive impact on lives of new mom’s and babies or looking out for the less fortunate animals of her com-

munity. Her contributions will be greatly missed. Gwen is survived by her son, Troy Kalynuik; her daughter Julia Kalyniuk; and her former spouse Ken Kalyniuk; all of Nelson, BC. She was predeceased by her father Martin Brown (2006) and is survived by family in Ontario; mother Jewel (Pegg) Brown of Ridgetown. Brothers David of Thunder Bay, ON, (Marcia) and James of Waterloo, ON, (Shannon). Sisters Margie Lawrence of Chatham, ON (Steve) and Rosemary Doupe of North Bay, ON (Jason). She is survived by several nieces and nephews Victoria Brown, Dan Brown (Alyssa), Benjamin and Isaac Brown, Emma, Bradley and Mark Lamoure. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 11:00 AM from the Chapel of Thompson Funeral Service Ltd. with Jim Brown officiating. An additional memorial service will be held at a later date in Ontario. Donations can be made to Kootenay Animal Assistance Program Society in Gwen’s name. On line condolences may be expressed at www. thompsonfs.ca Funeral Arrangements are under the direction of Thompson Funeral Service Ltd.
