Selkirk college opens Aboriginal Gathering Place In June 2010, Selkirk College marked the beginning of construction on their Castlegar campus Aboriginal Gathering Place with a ceremonial blessing and ground breaking. On May 24, 2012 they celebrated the official opening of the facility with over 100 invited guests in attendance. Selkirk College President, Angus Graeme explained “the project has always been grounded in the vision of a better college for Aboriginal learners, about the connection between celebrating culture and access to post-secondary education.” The guest list for the celebration

included representatives of the Aboriginal groups with which the College has collaborated in the development of the Gathering Place and on behalf of learners from the Aboriginal community. Members of the Ktunaxa Nation Council, the Okanagan Nation Alliance, the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, the Métis Nation of B.C., and the Sinixt Nation Society were all in attendance. Speakers representing Aboriginal governments spoke of the critical need to make post-secondary education more accessible, welcoming, and respectful of Aboriginal learners and their cultures.


A number of First Nations and Metis government leaders were present including (from left to right): Gwen Phillips, Governance Transition Coordinator for the Ktunaxa Nation Council; Angus Graeme, President and CEO of Selkirk College; Pauline Terbasket, Executive Director of the Okanagan Nation Alliance, and Darlene Zacherle, Councillor and Council Secretary of the Colville Confederated Tribes.

Nelson organizations work towards security and support for seniors Imagine a community that is truly friendly to seniors. The Osprey Community Foundation believes Nelson could be that community. Two years ago Osprey launched a community consultation process that identified some of the gaps in service and needs for Nelson-area seniors. Now, it is contracting with Nelson

CARES Society to work with the community to address these needs. Nelson CARES was chosen for its existing infrastructure, its community development experience, and because its proposed plan is a good fit with Osprey’s vision. “We hope to move the community from “what is” to ‘what could be’,” says Nelson Ames, Osprey Board

member who is leading the Foundation’s work in this area. “How can the community support seniors to live full, rewarding lives? What kind of community do we want to live in? This is a discussion that should involve all of us because we’ll all be seniors one day.” The first step of the project will be to bring together members of the community

interested in this issue. An advisory steering committee will be formed and charged with hiring a project manager. This key person will work with the broader community to shape a made-inNelson plan to make this a place where all seniors can live well and age with dignity. Submitted by the Osprey Foundation

Post-secondary education should be free for all

Montréal has in recent news, been the scene of demonstrations against the high cost of post-secondary education. The demonstrations are likley to continue, and if not dealt with, they will spread across Canada and indeed, around the world. Our priorities seem to be

out of line. We need to realize, it is our youth and students who will fix the mess we’ve created. Instead, we put them heavily into debt with increasingly high tuition rates. Society can only benefit if education is free for all. Just as we provide free education up to high-school, we can cer-

tainly find a way to provide it thereafter. Having an educated populous is an ingredient to civilized society. This is not a “black and white” issue, and modification will need to be done. Our priorities need to get straight; we must make education more accessible to all.

Last week’s survey responses:

Do you think Nelson needs more public art?

YES!!! This may very well act as a “deterrent” to unauthorized “tagging” and spray painting. It gives Nelson “vibrancy” and appeal! YES YES YES...why is this even a question???? I am a mural artist who lives in Nelson. I have created works of art across Western Canada, yet have never been able to get a commisson in my home town. I am part of the Nelson Chamber of Commerce and would love to see murals in my town. YES. Let’s paint a big mural on the Big White Government Building, like a grapevine or something. And there should be a tasteful Egyptian-themed mural on the Civic Theatre to fit with the Art-Deco style architecture. Plus the Vernon St. side of the Extra foods building, if its staying. YES, indeed I do... ABSOLUTELY we need art everywhere!

YES indeed, efforts like BOB’s mural should continue around town. I’m really sad that Nelson can’t get it together to have a “sculpture” show every summer like Castlegar. Come on folks, bring it on ! ! There’s talent here, someone please step up to the plate! Mayor Dooley? Council? Artists? NO! I love and support art, but huge murals plastered onto public surfaces make me feel cluttered and claustrophobic and chaotic. Bridges and public buildings should have their OWN beauty as works of art, and are only cluttered and deharmonized by murals that do not fit into their rhythm – that even WRECK their rhythm. We need to find OTHER ways to promote public art – such as public painting walls designed harmoniously for the purpose. ABSOLUTELY; lets beautify Nelson and extol the virtues of our artists. Down with those causing destructive defacement of public places.

NOT really, I think the mural on BOB is distracting and tacky. The City should have been more choosy about the artists. It should have been less “modern” and blaring. I see this becoming very outdated, very quick. YES, definitely. Castlegar is much more attractive as a city than we are here in Nelson because of their public sculptures!

YES! Of all kinds. Let it be loved or hated, but let us have art. YES, other communities in B.C. have benefitted greatly from public art (White Rock and many more.) Breaks the everyday boredom and can pick up the spirits. NO. It looks like BOB got a stupid tatoo. There are no benefits of these displays of what some call “Art.”

Opinion&Editorial Two New Solitudes – Part I Peacekeepers or Combatants?

Alex Atamanenko NDP for BC Southern Interior

There was a time when we talked about the “two solitudes” in Canada, referring to a divide between French and English Canada. Although differences still exist between our two founding cultures, they are now more often celebrated than not. Over the past few years, however, I have seen “two new solitudes” emerge. Let’s call them “Neo-Conservative” and “Progressive.” Though we may speak the same language, we really do not understand each other. I notice this in the House of Commons, particularly. There are major differences in how these two new solitudes perceive the world and I would like to discuss these over my next two columns. One solitude sees for Canada a role on the world stage that is a significant shift from the values that our country has traditionally represented. The current Conservative government wants Canada to become a proud military nation that makes major contributions to war efforts in areas such as Afghanistan and Libya. This focus means that our military must be equipped and trained to engage in more combat missions throughout the world, usually at the side of the US in NATO-led missions. The latest military technology, like the F-

35 first strike jets, needs to be in place to fit into this version. The other solitude believes that Canada has lost its leadership role in world peacekeeping and that we should return to our role of working within the United Nations and concentrate on making defence a priority for our armed forces. This change would require that Canada leave Afghanistan and decline other missions with NATO, an organization originally set up in 1949 to protect Europe from communist aggression. Canada should play a greater role as a broker in peaceful settlements in the Middle East, Africa and other areas of conflict. Military purchases should provide the equipment to get the job done and keep our troops, and civilians, safe. This past November I introduced a Private Member’s bill to create a federal Department of Peace. Bill C-373 passed first reading in the House of Commons on November 30, 2011. The work of a Department of Peace would be to strengthen non-military means of peacemaking by developing policies and programs that promote national and international conflict prevention, non-violent intervention, mediation and peaceful conflict resolution. Bill C-373 outlines wide-ranging objectives for a Department of Peace that would tackles domestic and international responsibilities in the areas of human security and education. The notion that there can be peace in the world may be a utopian ideal but each generation owes it to the next to make a dedicated attempt to get as close to it as humanly possible.

Say no to Enbridge

Members of the Nelson Chapter Council of Canadians have been concerned over the increase of oil spills and the potential risks posed through the carrying of raw tar sands crude (bitumen) in pipelines from Alberta tar sands to the coast of Kitimat. The pipelines are intended to cross unstable BC mountainous terrains as well as over 785 rivers and streams to be exported to Asian markets on tankers with a holding capacity of up to 8 times more than the Exon Valdez. These tankers are planned to travel through 185 kilometres of some of the most dangerous and unpredictable waters in the world. To build community awareness, members held a forum in Nelson May 30th. The forum featured disturbing facts about possible impacts of the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline and Alberta tar sands production. Speakers were Bill Jo Bray, president of Visions for Our Future (a grassroots group of indigenous people on the Colville Indian Reservation) and representative of the Western Mining Action Network; organizer and activist Meghan Anderson; Ora Cogan,

Co-founder of the Salt Spring No Pipeline Coalition;Art Sterritt, Executive Director of the Coastal First Nations; and Andrew Nikiforuk , investigative journalist and author of Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent,who stated, “The debate about the Northern Gateway project will determine the future of Canada. Fight now or lose everything noble and honorable about your country”. Mr. Sterritt said “more and more, average everyday people are realizing how the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline will profoundly change their lives, and each day more are fighting for democracy and for their say in what happens in their province and elsewhere”. The event was sponsored by the Nelson Chapter Council of Canadians, Kootenays for a Pipeline- Free BC, and Kootenay Region Branch United Nations Association in Canada. The Nelson Chapter of the Council of Canadians meets monthly and welcomes new members. For more information, please contact

“Murder in the Brewery” event and book launch A special event and book launch for Deryn Collier’s new mystery novel, Confined Space, a Nelson Public Library event to be held at the Nelson Brewing Company Friday, June 15 at 7 p.m. Confined Space, published by Simon & Schuster this June, was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for an unpublished first crime novel. The novel is set in a small town with a West Kootenay feel, where exCanadian Forces commander-turned coroner Bern Fortin investigates a death in the brewery. What starts as a routine

investigation—a worker accident in a bottlewashing tank—quickly becomes murderous in more ways than one. The character of Fortin, suffering from the effects of his own combat past, is as complex as the small-town relationships he encounters. “Murder in the Brewery,” is not the title of the book, but it is the title of the event, which is both a celebration of an exceptional new talent and a fundraiser for Nelson Public Library collections, particularly the mystery

collection. The author will read from the book in a special presentation and sign copies for sale on-site by Otter Books. A menu of sinfully-delicious appetizers prepared by Max & Irma’s will be paired with some of Nelson Brewing Company’s finest beers in combinations so good, they should be illegal, in crime. $25 per person, with advance tickets available at the Nelson Library and Otter Books. Space is limited to 50 tickets.

The photographs of David R. Gluns are familiar to some: his work appears on many local websites and tourism brochures, and he’s the feature photographer for the coffee table book: Nelson, British Columbia. Now, a selection of some of his finest work is on display at the Nelson Public Library. Dave Gluns travels everywhere with an inspired eye, consummate skill, and a good camera—or two or three. It’s paid off: his photographs have appeared in a number of national and international magazines including Beautiful British Columbia, Western Living, Bike, Westworld, Cycle Canada, B.C. Women, Northwest Travel, Golf West, Sunset, Western Living, Canoe and Kayak, and Explore. His client list includes municipalities, financial institutions, colleges, corporations, and Provincial ministries. An avid skier, hiker, and outdoorsman, Dave also leads treks in Nepal, his camera always close by. In support of education opportunities for Nepalese children, he has held fundraising slideshows of his Nepal images. Gluns is also a fixed-wing pilot and often works in conjunction with Nelson Mountain Air doing aerial photography. Recently, Dave retired from his day job as a forest hydrologist and now devotes more time to his “other work.” The exhibition at the Library continues through July.

Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks Thursday June 14, 6 p.m. at the Royal

Throughout his decades-long career, Dan Hicks stood as one of contemporary music’s true eccentrics. While steeped in folk, his acoustic sound knew few musical boundaries, drawing on country, call-and-response vocals, jazz phrasing and no small amount of humor to create a distinctive, albeit sporadic, body of work which earned him a devoted cult following.

Former NDU instructor launches latest book Friday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Nelson’s Oxygen Art Centre, 320 Vernon St. (alley entrance). Vernon author, educator and musician John Lent, an instructor at Nelson’s former Notre Dame University, will launch his new novel, The Path to Ardroe. The launch, part of Oxygen Art Centre’s Presentation Series, is free and open to the public. The novel follows four characters who grew up in, or who were influenced by, post-World War II Edmonton, and at the time of the story are variously living in Scotland, France and the Okanagan Valley. “I can think of no Canadian writer,” wrote Canadian literature icon Robert Kroetsch about Lent, “who so thoroughly positions in front of us the mirror that might offer us at once both reality and the imagined.” His other poetry and fiction publications include the novel So It Won’t Go Away, shortlisted for the 2005 B.C. Book Prizes. A parallel career as a musician began in Nelson when he performed as a folksinger under the name Johnny Fargo. Currently he performs as part of the Vernon-based jazz and roots group, the Lent/Fraser/Wall Trio. ●Cribbage at the Legion beverage room, 12:45p.m. 250-3527727.
