City of Nelson opposes creation of Jumbo municipality by Robin Murray

The Nelson City Council passed a resolution directed towards the Union of British Columbia Municipalities Executive at their April 23 Special Council meeting. which states, According to a recent press release from the EcoSociety, “Nelson is the latest of several municipalities to pass similar motions ahead of the Union’s executive meeting this week. The District of Invermere started the ball rolling with a resolution in late February, and it

sent letters to every municipality in the province. Since then, the municipalities of New Denver, Clearwater, Maple Ridge, and Smithers have passed similar resolutions. The Lower Mainland Local Government Association has also asked the provincial body to get involved in the case.” “I’m not surprised that the issue is resonating with cities across the province. Real city councilors have a mandate to represent citizens and residents,” said EcoSociety Director David

“Be it resolved that the UBCM executive be encouraged to submit an application to the Supreme Court of British Columbia seeking intervention status in the case between the EcoSociety and the Province of British Columbia and Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort Municipality; “And be it further resolved that staff send a letter to the UBCM encouraging UBCM involvement in this legal proceeding as above and encouraging the UBCM to express concern to the Government of the Province of British Columbia for the precedent set by establishing a municipality with no population and without an appointed council.” Text of the City of Nelson’s resolution

Reid. “The Jumbo council’s constituency is a single real estate developer. The whole process is a blow to democracy and an insult to elected councilors everywhere.”

The EcoSociety along with other such as the Ktunaxa Nation have been vocal in their opposition to the proposed Jumbo ski resort since the 1990’s.

The Nelson Food Cupboard is hungry for change From May 5-11 the Nelson Food Cupboard will recognize Hunger Awareness Week. This week is an opportunity to learn about hunger in our community and to collaborate on solutions. The Nelson Food Cupboard operates a barrier-free food bank and

works to address the root causes of food insecurity. According to Coordinator Anna Kirkpatrick, hunger in Nelson has many faces. “There is no typical customer. People accessing food include families with young children, seniors and individuals with disabilities. These are our friends

and neighbours.” The Nelson Food Cupboard welcomes donations of food, funds or time. As you plan your garden, consider planting extra for the Food Cupboard. During Hunger Awareness Week Food Cupboard volunteers will be out and about in the community. Watch

Spring bear activity causes trail closure Wednesday May 1 to Saturday, June 15, for part of the Nelson-Salmo Great Northern Trail In consultation with BC Conservation Officer Service, Regional Bear Biologists and the Ministry of Forest Land and Natural Resource Operations, the Regional District of Central Kootenay is initiating an annual spring trial closure for a portion of the NelsonSalmo Great Northern Trail. The annual closure will

include the trail south of Cottonwood Lake parking area to Hall Siding. The closure will begin on May 1st until June 15th. Signs will be posted accordingly at the entrance to trail closures. Collared bear data has shown the area from Cottonwood Lake to Hall siding, particularly the areas of Apex and Camp Busk,

are heavily used by grizzly bears in the spring. The bears use this area because of its high valued forage habitat. In most cases the bears move on to higher elevations by the middle of June. It is felt that an annual closure will help ensure public safety and benefit the local bear population from over exposure.

As black bear and grizzly bear activity is common in the Spring and early Summer, bears may be present on the trail system throughout the year so the public is reminded to always use caution, do not attempt to view or approach bears, do not leave garbage or food on trails, and to respect all trail closures. submitted by the RDCK

Police News: Police News break and enter suspect caught

Friday, Apr. 26, 2013

Page 6

Emergency 911 Non Emergency (250) 354-3919 Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477

Nelson Police Department officers responded to over eighty five (85) calls for service between April 19 and 23. On Saturday, Apr. 20, at approximately 10:50 p.m., NPD members responded to a report of a suspicious male in the Fairview area. The male was suspected to have committed a recent break and enter to a Fairview business and was diligently spotted by the business owner and reported. Prior to immediate police arrival, the suspect was able to seek cover in a Fairview residence however the business owner was able to pinpoint his location. As a result, NPD members were able to effectively locate and arrest the 29 year old male from Kaslo, B.C. The male was transported to NPD cells where he was brought before a Justice of the Peace and eventually released on conditions to appear in Nelson Court next month, facing a charge of Break and Enter. The male has also been recently charged with multiple thefts and possession of stolen property in separate and unrelated incidences.

On Wednesday, Apr. 24 at approximately 2:25 a.m., NPD members observed a fight in progress during routine patrols in the 800 Block of Vernon St. Upon police arrival, the male suspect was subdued and detained by local bar staff. Two young Nelson residents were allegedly assaulted by the male prior to being detained and sustained significant facial injuries. The 20 year old male from Creston, B.C. was arrested for two counts of Assault Causing Bodily Harm. During the exchange with bar staff the male suspect also sustained significant injury to his leg and was therefore transported to Kootenay Lake Regional Hospital upon arrest. He was later released at hospital on documents to appear in Nelson Court in May. Shortly after release, hospital staff contacted NPD to report the male had departed the hospital in a stolen wheel chair. The male eventually returned to the Vernon St area and allegedly uttered threats to persons in the area, before fleeing the scene on a bicycle. NPD

are continuing investigation into these matters and will seek a warrant of arrest for the male in relation to Theft and Uttering Threats charges. NPD are pleased to report no major incidences occurred during the West Coast Amusement Fair this past weekend. However the event was not without some police involvement

as several liquor related offences were observed and enforced. A 37 year old Langley resident was arrested for Intoxication in Public and lodged in NPD cells. Several violation tickets were also issued under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act for consuming liquor in public as well as minors in possession of liquor.

Missing person: Daniel Crossley

O n Wednesday, April, the Slocan Lake R C M P received a report that eighteen year old Daniel Crossley, of Slocan British Columbia, had left his family residence at approximately 4 p.m. the previous day, Tuesday, April 23. Daniel has not contacted any family or friends since leaving and his plans and destination are unknown. Daniel is described as a caucasian male with oriental features, 18 years old, 5’6” tall, 140 lbs, medium length

black hair, wearing a green coat over brown hoodie, dark jeans, and black shoes. It is believed that Daniel may be hitchhiking along British Columbia highways and police are asking for public assistance from anyone that may have seen Daniel in the last few days. Anyone with information about Daniel Crossley’s disappearance or knowledge of his current location are asked to contact their local RCMP detachment, the Slocan Lake RCMP detachment at 250-358-2222, or 911. Please quote file number 2013-1854 when providing information.

RCMP Reports: traffic fatality in Castlegar, runaway youth found

On Saturday, Apr. 20 at 1:35 p.m. the Castlegar RCMP, Castlegar Fire Department and the West Kootenay Traffic Services responded to a two vehicle fatal collision on Robson Access Road and Pass Creek Road, Castlegar. A 2003 Hyundai driven by an 18 year old female driver from Castlegar was

traveling toward town on Robson Access Road and lost control and crossed into the oncoming lane striking a 2006 Dodge pickup driven by a 39 year old male from Castlegar. The lone female driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. The occupants of the Dodge pickup, driver, his wife and small child where

transported to Trail hospital. The husband and wife suffered serious but non life threatening injuries and the small child was unhurt. At this time the name of the deceased is being withheld until next of kin can be notified. Further to last week’s runaway youth report by Nelson RCMP, Zachary

Knodel was located. Knodel did end up going to a family members house in the lower mainland. Police will be requesting Ministry of Children and Families follow up the child and parent. The RCMP would like to thanks all those people who called in with information. submitted by the Nelson and Castlegar RCMP

We appreciate the great job our employees

did to help us reach our strategic goals.” At the AGM it was announced that director Laureen Barker was reelected while director Colin McClure and returning director Michael Bancroft were elected by acclamation.

Building a deck Home Front

by Bill Lynch, Paul Muntak & Steve Cannon

There are some usual and obvious steps that you should follow such as checking references (work completed in a timely and professional manner). Take a look at other projects these carpenters have completed. In your selection, consider that the low bid is often not the best choice because low bid contractors may cut corners to make up for the lack of funding. You can feel comfortable discarding unusually high estimates which, in turn,

We’re about to build a 12’ X 20’ deck attached to our house in the back yard. Do you have any tips to help us pick a qualified carpenter? leaves those bids that are in the mid range. Consider the size of the carpenter’s crew. For instance, there is an old carpenter’s adage that says “two carpenters working together can do the work of three working alone.” For instance, on a project like your deck, a single carpenter may attempt the project, but it would take him considerably longer than the total hours of two tradesmen or a carpenter and a helper working as a team. In every contract you’re paying for the amount of time spent, so

the man working alone can cost you more in the end. However, there are lots of projects, especially finishing work like cabinets, kitchen and bathroom renovations and interior retrofits that are well suited for one man. A lot about selecting your contractor relies on using your intuition and the feeling that you and your project really “fit” with a particular person. Be sure to have a fully developed set of drawings with as much detail as you can specify so there is no room for ambiguity

between you and your contractor. Contract prices are padded with a worst case contingency, especially in renovation work. So, a flat rate “contract price” can sometimes cost you more than a good, trustworthy tradesman working by the hour. Do get a written contract defining the scope of work, the fee payment schedule, standards of workmanship expected and a reasonable timeframe for completion. You’ll find several standard contract forms available at your local building and

How many litres of gasoline from a barrel of crude oil? dr. science Christine Humphries

If you have been to a gas station recently to fillup on gasoline, you may have noticed the rather hefty price per litre! One of the reasons gasoline is so expensive right now is because between 40 and 50 percent of the cost of gasoline reflects the price of crude oil. And, due to political tensions in Iran and concerns about the supply of

gasoline for summer months, crude oil prices have reached near record highs. So what is crude oil? Crude oil is the base product that is used to make gasoline and other products; it is a naturally occurring petroleum product, the name given to a type of organic compound called a hydrocarbon that contains only carbon and hydrogen. Canada is the sixth largest oil producing country in the world. The crude

oil is processed by one of 24 refineries in Canada, each using the crude oil as a raw material to produce different products. Generally, crude oil is refined using a distillation process which separates the oil into different fractions based on the weight and the boiling point of each fraction. Each fraction is then further processed into gasoline, diesel fuels, light fuel oil, aviation jet fuel, heavy fuel and petrochemicals.

Dr. Science is in real life, Dr. Christine Humphries, a molecular biologist

One barrel of crude oil is equal to 159 litres. Of these 159 litres, approximately 40 percent of the crude oil is refined into gasoline, another 40 percent into diesel fuel, heating oil and jet fuel, and the remaining into lubricants and asphalt. If you would like more information on oil and the energy-sector in Canada, visit the very informative website of the Canadian Centre for Energy at www.centreforenergy.com

Sticky, Icky

A show for all the senses even waited in-line for 3 hours to get the last set of door tickets. The energy was high and beats were bumpin’. The crowd was varied with a wide age-range of locals and fresh outof-town faces. It was hot, the music was loud, and the visuals enthralling. The audio/visual combination was a nice change to the scene and helped make it stand out from every other show at Spirit Bar. By the sounds of it, the Fractal forest crew will be continuing

Rory on the town by Rory Case

On Saturday, April 20, a big city-like line up could be found around the Hume Hotel as eager party-goers patiently waited for the doors to open at Spirit Bar. Sticky buds, a resident DJ of Shambhala Music fest, was in town to throw down another Fractal Forest themed dance party. The bar was decorated with black-light designs and video mapping was projected on the back wall. It was a sold out show; some

Opinion&Editorial Publisher’s note I used to think that news was everything. After all, the word news is made of the first letters of the four points of the compass. I’ve always By Nelson Becker been a veracious reader of newspapers. Watching television news became an important part of my daily habitual activity. I learned early on that every news outlet had its own perspective. I found I had adopted the concept that news was bad news. It wasn’t in my original definition. The bad news concept came into my brain secretly. I began to think that the only things of significance happening in our society were negative things. When I began to travel and meet people, a lot of the prejudices and generalizations that had been instilled in me dropped away. The more people I met and experienced, the more I realized that we live a world filled

My Opinion As we grow up we often feel isolated from our peers, we feel like we need to conform to standards other perpetuate in order to belong. I know I spent a good portion of my teenage years conforming to other people’s standards, and although it boded well at the time as i’ve gotten older i’ve realized it wasn’t the best of choices. Many of my friends back then are either my friends no longer or I have lost touch with them, it proved that these people were only friends with the ideas that I was perpetuating at the

But is it news? with good. But media either doesn’t tell us about it or puts it on page 43. We, as consumers of news, have a tendency to react to sensationalism and gossip. We end up supporting the media that scares us the most. The solution to this is to realize that we are partly responsible for the massiveness of bad news, and we also must realize that we are not hearing it all. We are always hearing a biased perspective. At one time I though it was possible to be a provider of news and be objective. After more than 40 years in the media business I realize it’s impossible to say anything without having a bias. The best we can do it is be upfront about our biases. In reading the Express News Update, you can know that indeed we do have a bias, and that is we see our community and world through rosycoloured glasses. We see the good work that is being done by our many volunteers as the heart of relevant news in our community. by Spencer Pollard

time and not the person underneath. After writing all these articles, I have come to the realization that many of them are self-help related, that stems a lot from my need to help people with personal matters. I never felt like i had that when i was younger so offering those services seems mandatory to me at this stage in my life. In short, forge an identity you can call your own. In this day and age where people take influences from everywhere, it’s important to take your own influences from everywhere and from within.

Opinion&Editorial Who will save our parks?

Commentary by the Friends of West Kootenay Parks Society

For the last 30 years, successive provincial governments have whittled away at the funding necessary to manage our park system. This has happened in spite of numerous studies that have shown that money spent on parks is money that multiplies in the community. Just prior to the first Liberal government of Gordon Campbell, a study showed that a dollar spent in the parks generates $10 in economic activity. More recently, another study pegged that multiplier at 7.5. Given the hundreds of thousands of dollars that are spent on advertising to lure tourists to the province, it would seem logical that money should be spent in the park system to maintain the tourism product that is promised by the glowing pictures.

In recent years, the number of seasonal park rangers that work on the ground in West Kootenay parks has dwindled to less than the number that worked in Kokanee Glacier Park alone in the late ‘80’s. The rangers monitored and repaired trails, provided educational and safety services to the public and gave valuable input to park planners. Now, few hikers ever see a ranger and the few rangers left wage a frustrating struggle to maintain what exists. There is no doubt that money has been spent on the existing “front-country” parks that campers use most frequently (and which are managed by private Park Facility Operators) but the back country jewels in the park system crown are deteriorating.

Another issue which is affecting parks province wide is the issue of access maintenance. The best example locally is the closing of Woodbury Creek Road last summer which restricted access to two alpine cabins. These cabins generate revenue for Kokanee Glacier Park which is used to help fund maintenance in the park but for lack of access, sat empty last summer. While it is true that 2012 was an exceptional year for road washouts, this problem of jurisdictional priorities is not new. There are many parks in the province whose access is at the mercy of a different ministry which does not share BC Parks’ view of the importance of access. The Friends of West

Kootenay Parks feel that the time is long overdue for our governments to stop turning a blind eye to the problems facing BC Parks. As a start, the Friends would like to propose that the next government establish a cross-ministry system of access priortization that recognizes the importance of tourism when maintaining back country roads. In addition, since the budget of BC Parks has been repeatedly savaged for the last 13 years, the Friends propose that the next government should cease cutting at our parks’ budget and fund them to at least the rate of inflation.

How do you keep up on world news? Click here or visit the link below

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/world_news

Last week’s survey responses: Would you accept a wage that is higher than fair? Depends 50% Yes 25% No 25%

I would take the higher wage in order to make sure this company never makes this mistake again Maybe they don’t know any better. They may be a small business and need to know this information.

If the facility offering the work could be seen as able to afford the $75, I’d take it. Depending on more details than this scenario offers, I might point out that similar work is obtainable for a lower weekly rate.

What if it was a friend or relative? No 50% Depends 50%

Yes 0% I’d be concerned about the viability of the business.

A friend no, a relative yes It’s not fair!

Because if they could not affort to pay wages like that they would soon be out of business and I would have no job. They would need accounting advice and we would all win. If the business expanded I would accept/ ask for more if financially feasable. In this case I would as if a new company did not do enough research and build their business model accordingly (and if they are offering 3x industry standard... then what else is wrong with their business model?) then they wont be surviving long and your job will only be temporary! Who knows what’s fair? Most civil service jobs pay higher than fair!

I would have an open & honest conversation around company activities and what my role would be. How financially solid is this company? What work am I being asked to do? How good am I at doing it? It would make no difference if they were friends or not. I would make sure they knew what the minimum wage was in this country and see what they do...I like clarity and above board professional interactions in work contracts. I probably would not want to work for them if they were too out to lunch! If worked harder than $20 hour I would let them know what I am worth (meeting) not taking the full $75 and let them review it.

What if they owed me money? I/they would still have to record it some way and they would have to know that the job is not worth the money paid. I still has to be counted for. If I am worth it yes! What is their motive for offering it and what are their expectations and am I able to meet those expectations and how will I grow in the job...it is not all about money in jobs I do not think.

Ditto. If I was comfortable knowing they could afford the money, I’d take it. But again, depending on more details than this scenario offers, I might point out that similar work is obtainable for a lower weekly rate. If friend or relative I would feel obligated to assist them. Same as my answer to the above question
