Sid’s Treasures with Teresa Vander Meer-Chassé

Rations and cookbooks L

ate May brought sun and warmth to the bordertown of Beaver Creek, Yukon. Sid was already back working hard at the Visitor Information Centre. He could feel the season was going to be a good one. Sid had come a long way from his childhood in northern Netherlands during the end of the Second World War. Searching through his many cabinets of papers, we found war ration booklets and wartime cookbooks from Canada. “Food was in short supply; nothing went to waste. People needed the cookbooks to use what they had,” Sid said. It’s hard to imagine nothing, especially for someone like myself, who has been privileged to never having experienced starvation. That being said, there are many people amongst us who have and still do. Famine hit the Netherlands during 1944

and 1945 during the German occupation that killed thousands. “My mom and grandma always reused the bacon grease. They had a can of it on the stove and they never needed to use new stuff. Everybody had a pot of grease to cook with. They cooked with the same stuff, but it still tasted good. You used what you had because if you went to the store, the shelves would already be empty.” After looking through the cookbooks, it became apparent that a major theme in cooking at the time was to use anything and everything available. It was no surprise to see dishes of tongue or kidney pie included amongst the recipes. We also found war ration booklets that were owned by a family friend who

lived in Canada during the war. “Rations were used to limit what people could get, especially things like gas. Gas was a luxury and wasn’t meant for your personal use,” Sid said.

Rations and cookbooks ... cont’d when purchasing a product, such as gasoline. “Farms were able to get more gas rations because they needed it to fuel their vehicles. No one was going to say no to a farmer because they were still able to provide people with food,” said Sid. “Farmers were able to use the rations for work vehicles, like pick-up trucks. They were able to get tires too. That’s why you see all these old Model As chopped with a box added and people called them ‘farm trucks’ so they could get the gas and tires.” Whether it’s food on a plate in front of you, or the convenience of driving a few blocks to pump gas, we have to remember that this is a luxury. And although Europe and North America have not experienced such trying times since the wars, there remains many places across the world that are currently struggling and facing wartime famine and rationing. “It was when the poor and rich were the same. Even if you had money, it didn’t matter because there was nothing you could buy with it anyway,” Sid added. Sid’s collection of war ration booklets and wartime cookbooks is available to view at the Bordertown Garage and Museum. Come and visit us this summer!

I

’ve often wondered what it would be like to go camping, fishing, hiking or just relaxing by the fire without the abundance of biting insects that seem to enjoy the same places as we do. How about the frustration created by those two or three mosquitoes that followed us into the tent at bedtime and only announced their presence after the light was turned off? It’s all part of our outdoor adventure, but we can take some steps to minimize the nuisance created by what feels like a million biting insects surrounding us. Some of the old strategies for avoiding mosquitoes, black flies and no-see-ums include eating a steady diet of garlic, rubbing on Avon’s Skin So Soft lotion, applying the white powder from the bark of poplar trees, or just sitting in the smoke of the camp-fire. Some or all of these may work part of the time, but you really need something you can depend on to keep the bugs at bay. There are rub-on lotions, atomizer/squeeze-type sprays, aerosols, smoking coils, area foggers and a Thermacell device that clears a 10-metre circle around you for about four hours. There are natural and chemical products available, but generally the chemical products are more effective. The most effective chemical products contain DEET in various concentrations. A newly discovered and very effective natural product

is Icaridin or Picaridin, which is actually as effective as DEET when used at a slightly higher concentration. DEET also proves challenging for the user as it will dissolve many types of plastic including some synthetic clothing, sunglass lenses and fishing tackle box trays. The above noted natural product does not affect plastics.

Both DEET and Picaridin are safe to use if the instructions are followed, including not getting any in your eyes. These products are both available in varying concentrations and are more effective at a higher concentration. Re-application is necessary after anywhere from one to six hours. Mosquito coils are quite effective in a no-wind situation and are simple to use by lighting the end of the coil, blowing out the flame and placing on the small stand that comes in the box of coils. These are also good for 10 minutes

inside the tent prior to bedtime or when you first arrive at the cabin. Thermacell area repellants use butane to burn a wafer held on the top of a device similar in size to a TV remote. This emits an invisible gas that actually does work well at repelling bugs for a 10 metre circle for up to four hours. Area foggers can be powered by propane or electricity and are temporarily effective. New bugs will arrive at some point, but relief is yours for a while. DEET is greasy and has an odour while Picaridin is non-greasy and odourless. I’ve never liked creams or lotions on my skin, so I’ve always carried a head net big enough to go over any reasonably sized hat. Bug nets are made of mesh and are not hot to wear. They squash down to nothing in your pocket or fanny pack until needed. You have to take them out of the way to eat, but you can drink right through the mesh. Light cotton gloves will keep the bugs off your hands. Larry Leigh is an avid angler, hunter and all-round outdoors person who prefers to cook what he harvests himself.

Richard’s Tire Tips

When was the last time YOU ROTATED YOUR TIRES?

Studies have shown that by performing a regular rotation every 8 - 10,000kms the life of your tires is significantly increased, in most cases by up to 25%. Other factors such as driving style, application and tire pressure will also affect tread life. Failure to regularly perform rotations has proven to cause several different abnormal wear patterns such as diagonal, accelerated and uneven wear. The common rule for rotations is to move the drive axle tires straight forward or back depending on the vehicle and the free rolling axle should be crossed.

The Dákų ̀ nän tsʼèddhyèt Dance Festival (Our House is Waking Up the Land) takes place in Haines Junction from June 13 to 16

Dance dance revolution Get ready to cut a rug in Haines Junction by Amy Kenny

Dancers perform as part of the dance and drumming festival that took place in Haines Junction in 2017

Y

ou don’t have to be part of a dance group to be a dancer. According to Rose Kushniruk, acting chief of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, everyone has it in them and the Dákų̀ nän tsʼèddhyèt Dance Festival (Our House is Waking Up the Land) will draw it out this summer. The four day festival, taking

place from June 13 to 16 at the Da Kų Cultural Centre in Haines Junction, will feature dozens of dancers and performers this year. It’s the third gathering of the biannual festival which began in 2015. Kushniruk said she’s excited to see performances from new invitees including Laura Grizzlypaws, a singer, dancer, performer and

educator from Saskatchewan, and the New Dawn Drum Group. Comprised of four women, together representing the medicine wheel, the Saskatchewan-based group was founded in 2007. “The group was created to help young girls heal from their past in the foster care system. Eventually they became used to help others heal as well by listening to the strength of the drum in the healing songs,” said Kushniruk . The festival will also feature Tall Paul, an Ojibwe rapper from the U.S. Kushniruk said there’s a mix of contemporary and traditional programming in this year’s festival, partly because organizers want to get the youth involved and partly because they already are. She said four youth have been responsible, under the guidance of senior advisors, for a lot of the programming and planning this year. “That mix of traditional and contemporary is very important because it bridges our generations together,” said Kushniruk. “And if we have to combine our traditional teachings with modern day activities and what the youth like, then that’s a real good way to ensure that the messages are getting to them in a different way, but are still the same.” “We’re still finding our own flavour as a festival ... dance plays a vital role in keeping culture alive. There are three festivals in the Yukon now, the Moosehide Gathering and the Ha Kus Teyea Celebration in Teslin and this one. And it just keeps growing and growing;

and it’s just so interesting, all the stories you learn in the songs.” In addition to dancing and singing from groups including throat singers Lois Suluk and Patricia Kablutsiak, Dakwäkäda Dancers, Dakhká Khwáan, Pavva Iñupiaq and Tagish Nation Dancers, there will be workshops and activities all weekend. There will be a pow wow book camp for kids and workshops in making headbands and armbands, as well as Tutchone art painting, medicine plants and a youth rap workshop. There will also be a memorial dance to pay respects to Kenny Baker, a member of the Carcross/ Tagish First Nation who died in an accident not long after the 2017 festival. Kushniruk said she expects thousands will attend the festival over the course of the weekend. Yukoners and Alaskans make the trip. People passing by on the highway stop in. And this year the Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay is taking place the same weekend. Attendance is free at both the festival and the workshops.

YUKON INNOVATION PRIZE FINALISTS PART 3 OF 4

Kiss your ash goodbye Innovation would reduce fine particulate from woodstoves by Danny Macdonald

Y

ukon Innovation Prize finalist Michael Gerasimoff wants to help transition heating in the Yukon from fossil fuels to biomass (wood) while maintaining the excellent air quality that is a cherished aspect of living in the North. Gerasimoff has a background working in climate change and engineering fields and is a registered professional engineer in geology. His project plans to apply the old principle of “static cling”

whatsupyukon.com in order to collect particulate that would be emitted when biomass is burned. “The operating principle is well-known and goes back over 100 years,” Gerasimoff said. “This application of the principle is for residential wood smoke.” He plans to produce a unit that would be attached at the end of the venting stack on an installed stove. Using an electronic device at high voltage and converting it to direct current (DC) charge, installations would connect one half of the circuit to where users plan to collect the particulate. The other half is connected to the emitter and, if it’s appropriately shaped, the gases are ionized, creating a plasma. This electrically charged gas charges the particles so that they are attracted to the collector to neutralize. These particles get stuck to the collector and stay there. An acceleration equal to between 30 and 3000 g’s of force is exerted on them when charged. A layer of dust collects over top and locks the particles to the collector. “It is seen as a per installation on the stove pipe to collect at source,” Gerasimoff said. “Ideally, you would only see water vapor.” This reduction in particulate could be a key to improving biomass as a viable tool in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. While burning biomass for heat is a carbon neutral (aside from fossil fuels used during its collection), the pollution emitted in particulate matter can create serious air quality issues. Riverdale residents who remember when “no burn” days were necessary due to excessive wood smoke in the neighbourhood can attest to that concern.

Gerasimoff indicates that the air quality difference is quite pronounced. The average Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) woodstove used for heat delivered into the house produces approximately 5,000 times as much particulate pollution as an oil-fired furnace. “In the City of Whitehorse, with an assumption of 5,000 houses, one woodstove doubles the output of pollution,” Gerasimoff said. “We are strictly talking particulate discharge and air quality. The World Health Organization has identified fine particulate as a health risk.” Converting to biomass without addressing the particulate could actually result in worse air than just diesel. That fine particulate can get through the filters in our breathing systems. Gerasimoff notes that the finest particulate can actually get into our blood streams, including those benzenelike compounds that are carcinogenic. Gerasimoff’s method hopes to get 99.9 per cent efficiency, which would bring biomass particulate stove emissions to the same level as a well-run, high-efficiency oil or propane furnace. There is a push to get isolated off-grid communities off their reliance on diesel. Biomass is one of the potential fuel sources. Gerasimoff sees this technology as having potential application across the North. Now, with the effects of climate change, areas that used to be above the treeline will also have access to biomass. “Past the treeline and tundra areas, we’re seeing temperature rises,” he said. “Shrubs to small shrubs and trees, including willows

The four finalists were selected for the high commercialization potential. They were provided $10,000 to further develop their idea and the prize

winner will be announced in late June and will receive a further $60,000.

Women fight fire

__ My favourite quote of the week: “She needed a hero, so that’s what she became.” __ Life after Ember Fire Academy by Kylie Campbell

M

any ancient civilizations had a form of organized firefighting. The earliest recorded fire services was in Ancient Rome. Firefighting became more organized from the 18th century onwards. In 1818, Molly Williams, a New York City slave, was recorded as being the first female firefighter in the United States. In the 20th century, young women in boarding houses in the United Kingdom were taught fire drills during the Second World War. Women served in the wartime fire services of the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, though mostly in administrative and support roles.

After the Second World War, a second-wave of feminism and equal employment opportunity legislation removed official obstacles for women. The first female firefighter in the United Kingdom was recruited in 1976, while the first in New Zealand joined in 1981. Many fire departments required recruits to pass tough fitness tests, which became an ‘unofficial’ barrier to women joining. This led to court cases in a number of countries. Nevertheless, the percentage of women recruited by fire departments has been low. But the old boys’ club is dying out as equal opportunity and governments help encourage and provide opportunities for women to enter into the field. In 1999, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that a mandatory fitness test for those seeking to become firefighters in British

Columbia unfairly discriminated against women. The test had been based on the physiology of male firefighters. The Court ruled that employers must show that any required workplace tests are necessary, and that there has been some effort to accommodate individuals. In Canada, women make up 3.4 per cent of firefighters. The Yukon has a vast difference however, with a high proportion of female volunteer firefighters. “It is dependent on the year, but generally, we have estimated about 27 per cent of our 110 active members throughout the Yukon Volunteer Fire Service are women,” said a spokesperson with Community Services at the Yukon Government. “Yukon has one of the most diverse memberships in the Canadian Fire Services, but we continue to work towards a more diverse fire services.”

__ EMBER ACADEMY __

Female-focused camps to train young women in firefighting skills have been created by fire departments in Ottawa and London, Ontario, and have led to similar camps being established in the U.S. In the Yukon, Ember Firefighting Academy is a challenging and exciting program for women 16 years and up. It’s a free, weeklong course that exposes women to the realities of firefighting and first response in a safe and supportive environment. Whether participants are looking to explore a career in firefighting or jumpstart their physical fitness, the academy teaches new skills that can be used anywhere. Depending on the year, there can be as many as 30 volunteers participating at Ember, all from a number of Yukon’s 16 volunteer fire halls.

“Ember is in its fifth year and every year they have 12 recruits to the Ember Fire Academy,” said a spokesperson for Yukon Government’s Community Services department. “We have had 48 total recruits. After the Ember Fire Academy this year, we anticipate we will have had a total of 60 recruits over the past five years. We have had 20 recruits from the Ember Fire Academy go into the fire services, two have gone on to EMS, and two are in special operations.”

Ember Fire Academy grads Chelsea Michelle Larouche (left), Kourtney Martin and Jessica Terreberry have taken on roles with fire halls around the Yukon What made you join Ember last year? I love exploring new challenges and learning new things. I would definitely consider myself a risktaker and I felt like the Ember Fire Academy was right up my alley. What was the hardest thing you did during the training? The hardest thing I did during the training was overcoming my fear of heights by rappelling over a cliff. What was your favourite thing you did during the training? This is a hard question since I loved every single thing about the training! I must say my favorite thing was vehicle extrications and live fire exercises. What happened after Ember? I’ve joined Golden Horn Volunteer Fire Department. My goal is to complete my basics in order to be able to respond and continue to learn and grow as a firefighter. What aspects of firefighting are your favourite? My favorite part of firefighting is being able to help the com-

munity. I also like the physical challenge firefighting has to offer since I enjoy being physically fit.

Name: Jessica Terreberry

Age: 36 Where you are from: I grew up in Welland, ON, most recently from Ottawa, ON. What made you join Ember last year? I originally wanted to take the course in 2016 as a prequel to a college fire program, but Ember didn’t run that year. After graduating from Algonquin College for Pre-Service Firefighting, I was in contact with Fire Marshal James Paterson and saw it as an opportunity to further my skills, meet like-minded people and work towards a career in fire. What was the hardest thing you did during the training? Sleeping at the Carcross campground after seeing bears nearby! Ha. My real answer is rope rescue and rappelling down the rock face for the first time.

What was your favourite thing you did during the training? Live fire and auto extrication. What happened after Ember? I’m with Mount Lorne Volunteer Fire Department, passed basics working towards finishing advanced. My goal has been to work towards a career firefighter role but I’m also interested in fire prevention. What aspects of firefighting are your favourite? Community involvement and fulfillment in my job. At the end of the day I feel like I can help make a difference.

high angle rescue, bio-hazardous materials, live burn, simulated crawling through ducts and having to maneuver around wires in full gear, 30 minutes of hard exercise each morning and 30 minutes each afternoon. We did competitions, both individually and as teams, but my favorite part of the training was how we all pushed each other. How we all grew stronger as a team and how empowered I felt at the end of the six-day program. What happened after Ember? I have joined the Ibex Volunteer Hall. I’ve obtained my air brakes certification, ICS-100, and ICS-200. I’ve also completed four of the seven job performance requirements (JPR) needed to meet the basic level of fire training. Unfortunately, this time of year with the low temperatures is not the best for flowing water! I plan to have my basic level by May of 2019, as various training sessions are scheduled for the remaining JPRs. I do plan to stay with the hall, but continue with my regular day job as the administrator of the family law information centre as well. What aspects of firefighting are your favorite? My favorite aspect of firefighting is the close-knit community that you become a part of. You become part of a second family and it all began with Ember.

ing the program quite empowering and decided to join the Ibex hall as a volunteer. What was the hardest thing you did during the training? The hardest thing was mind over matter. You are in very hot, congested conditions. The very first exercise was a team exercise. We had two garbage bags over our heads to simulate being in a smoky fire environment and the first in line had a heat detector under their bag. Two other fire members (under two garbage bags each), held the first person’s shoulders, who held the next. The first in line had the heat detector to find an unknown heat source and had to use their voice to direct their team members and ensure they did not trip or bump into things. After the first person found their source, they had to pass the heat detector to the next person and move to the end of the line. We were under the bags for numerous minutes, sweating, with our body temperature continually rising. I am not claustrophobic, but seeing the bag so close to your face yet not being able to see anything, and experiencing your body temperature rise significantly in a short period of time was unnerving. This exercise was indoors in the middle of summer in full personal protective equipment. What was your favorite thing you did during the training? I loved all of the exercises. We did auto extrication, used hydraulic tools, extinguished auto fires, confined spaces, rescuing downed firefighters/RIT [Rapid Intervention Team] team,

Noctilucent Clouds—a rare meteorological phenomena for northern observers

U

Schematic of noctilucent clouds (NCL) reflecting sunlight when the sun is from 6 to 16 degrees below the horizon — too low to reflect from tropospheric clouds 

nless you’re dedicated enough to get up in the middle of the night with very good binoculars or a small scope to view the Virgo cluster of galaxies cresting our southern horizon, your stargazing options have greatly diminished. However, this gives me the chance to relate a uniquely northern meteorological phenomena that displays itself in our skies only at this time of year. The advent of summer solstice brings with it a unique opportunity to view the very highest clouds of our planet. All our “weather clouds,” expressing themselves with such exquisite grandeur in our northern skies, generally form in the troposphere. (up to 14 kilometres above sea level). Noctilucent clouds, however, are denizens of the mesosphere and form at the dizzying altitude of 80 to 85 kilometres. They form almost exclusively in the late spring and early summer months and can only be seen in northern latitudes. (50 to 70 degrees north.) To view noctilucent clouds, the sun must be well below the horizon, but still shining on the mesosphere where these delicate clouds reside. Daylight is just too overwhelming and drowns them out. With most of the Yukon smack dab in the middle of 50 to 70 degrees latitude, and with our midnight sun tracking just below the horizon for an extended period of time around summer solstice, the perfect geometry for seeing noctilucent clouds is created. The Yukon is most fortuitously placed to view this rare phenomena. The water vapour that makes up these clouds is exceedingly thin. Astonishingly, the mesosphere contains something around one hundred millionth the moisture content of the air above the Sahara Desert. In the rarified

atmosphere of the mesosphere, this limited moisture requires extremely cold temperatures of at least -120 degrees Celsius to form. Counterintuitively, the mesosphere becomes the coldest place on Earth only during the summer months, with temperatures conducive to forming noctilucent clouds. The ice crystals that make up these clouds are extremely small, at less than 100 nanometers (1/100,000th of a centi-

metre), which is comparable in size to the particles that make up smoke. Very little of the dust grains that are the nuclei around which these ice crystals form arrive from below. Almost entirely, the dust grains of the mesosphere are from meteorites vaporizing as they smash into our high atmosphere, and comet dust. As well as appearing very optically bright, noctilucent clouds happen to be very radar reflective. Although this is not well

understood, one speculation is that the ice crystals may have a very thin metallic coating of sodium and iron. In the high-speed collisions of incoming meteorites with our atmosphere, sodium and iron atoms are stripped from them and form in a layer just above noctilucent clouds. And when noctilucent clouds are present, this layer of sodium and iron is, perhaps tellingly, depleted. Sodium, in particular, is known to adhere easily to ice crystals at these low

temperatures. More studies on this are being conducted as we speak. And it would seem these elusive clouds may be indicators of climate change. Scientists are just beginning to realise the presence of noctilucent clouds are very dependent on temperature conditions from below. And the increased frequency of noctilucent clouds seems to correlate with the rise of the industrial age. Some scientists think these clouds may be our “miner’s canary” of climate change. Again, more studies are underway. Whether you feel these clouds are harbingers of doom, or nature’s winsome artwork on the tapestry of sky, don’t miss our unique opportunity to see this rare phenomena. There’s not much one needs to know to observe these rare clouds. Just remember that, because of the extreme altitude of noctilucent clouds, the sun can be up to 16 degrees below the horizon and still illuminate noctilucent clouds. It will be much darker than when viewing the beautiful sunsets of our lower “weather clouds” and the delicate ripples and wispy tendrils of noctilucents will appear unusually bright against the darkening sky. And because of the darker sky, or perhaps that reflective metallic coating of the tiny ice crystals, noctilucents have a distinctive bluish tinge to them. Enjoy!

Jim Borisenko is a happily retired campground maintenance person living in our spectacular wilderness. He also thinks our long dark un-light-polluted night skies is near the top of the list of the many things that makes the Yukon awesome.

YUKON INNOVATION PRIZE FINALISTS PART 4 OF 4

Venting for need, intelligent indeed

Intelligent monitor would monitor and control air ventilation based on air quality by Danny Macdonald Like another project, Yukon Innovation Prize finalists Cody Reaume and Thomas Jacquin are focused on improving the energy efficiency of Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs.) The units have become a mandatory part of northern construction because, as buildings become more insu-

whatsupyukon.com lated and efficient, the amount of fresh air capable of circulating into the structure is reduced. The unit helps keep the building ventilated, while preserving the heat already inside. The two inventors are focused on improving the intelligence of those cycles in the home by developing a device capable of monitoring and controlling the HRV. “The idea came about by looking at existing HRV controls,” Reaume said. “There’s not intelligence to it. You’re venting air, but there’s no telling if it’s clean or not. “Could we use real time measurements to monitor if air was clean?” The duo are proposing to do that monitoring with a wall control unit that would replace your existing control with a fourwire control. They envision it as something that individuals could simply retrofit and install on existing builds and HRV units. The end result is a home system that only activates for a cycle and uses energy when it detects that the air in the house needs to be ventilated due to air quality. “We want owners to understand the benefit of it,” Jacquin said. “Understand what it means when air quality is better. “You can reduce costs by eliminating circulation cycles when not needed and also improve air quality by cycling when required.” They have modeling that estimates the unit could provide energy savings of about $150 per year. Reaume is quick to note that the estimates vary depending on the occupancy and size of a home. Their models account for an aver-

age-sized home that’s usually empty from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The intelligent monitor itself would be approximately the size of a modern smartphone and would monitor the levels of carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the home to determine when a ventilation cycle is needed. Reaume notes that carbon dioxide is the compound in air that leaves it “stale” and VOCs are found in a lot of products including glue, paint and solvents. “You get ‘sick building syndrome’ from these things in buildings,” Jacquin said. Reaume and Jacquin see the unit as a viable product across the North and colder climates, where air quality issues and energy efficiency continue to be balanced in building new homes. They also note that it has the potential to improve the efficiency of ventilation for air conditioning in warmer climates. They have a plan to move their product forward and make sure that it can be successful. “The next step is getting an alpha product out in homes and getting some data collection and feedback,” Reaume said. “We want to adjust the product on feedback.” ‘We don’t want to ramp up production if there needs to be a change,” Jacquin said. “It’s important to get feedback if people want additional features.” The 2019 Yukon Innovation Prize is presented by the Cold Climate Innovation Centre at Yukon College and the Department of Economic Development. The four finalists were selected for the

ome kids eat their meals just to get to the desserts. I can well remember when dear old Mom would tell me to eat my supper because it was good for me. My eyes were on the grand finale aka the dessert that only came once I had finished the main event. Often, I would sneak one to take up to bed with me. With this in mind, this week I’m offering up some of those tasty treats from the good old days.
