Shift Happens

Ana Je ff

“Shift Happens!” I

yelled to nobody in

particular as I bolted

upright in bed. I had

been contemplating

a spoken word radio

program for some

time, but was unsure

how I would differentiate

it from the rest.

I knew that I wanted

it to be positive in

nature: with a background

in broadcasting

I was all too

familiar with the

gloom and doom tendencies

of mainstream

news.

Inspired, I got to

work with my partner

Ana Bokstrom,

highlighting the challenging,

yet positive

shifts in people’s lives

within this community

and from around

the world. That was six

years and 300+ shows

ago, airing twice a

week from Kootenay

Co-op Radio in Nelson,

Tuesdays from 2

- 4 pm, and repeating

Sundays 11 - 1 pm.

We value the ears

and the voices of our

growing listenership

and welcome and

encourage you to contribute

your own show

ideas at shifthappens.

From all of us at the Pennywise


CALGARY ROUTE NOW APPROVED!

Why is it called Boxing Day?

Boxing Day is named after a British tradition that

was first mentioned in Samuel Pepys’ diary in

1663. The servants of the nobility were allowed

to take the day after Christmas off to visit their

families. The employers would give each servant

a box to take home containing gifts, bonuses, and

sometimes leftover food. Kinda like a yuletide tip!

Insight into region

The Columbia Basin Rural

Development Institute (RDI) at

Selkirk College has just released

the 2019 Snapshot Report,

a region wide checkup that

investigates economic, social,

environmental and cultural

Best

Holiday

Wishes

From the management and staff

Rossland, BC

indicators for

the Columbia-Basin

Boundary.

“RDI is continuing

to provide

research

on well-being

to support evidence-based

decision making

across the

Columbia

Basin-Boundary,”

says Dr.

Adela Tesarek

Kincaid, Rural

Development

Institute lead

researcher at

Selkirk College. “The suite of

State of the Basin research initiatives

will continue to assist

local communities by providing

relevant and reliable data.”

The check-up is important to

residents, organizations, businesses

and local governments to

understand present conditions

and trends.

The data in the

report informs

decision making

that shapes

the future of

the communities

in the

region.

Some examples

of the

data in the

2019 Snapshot

Report

includes:

• Population projections to

2041 show a decrease in population

for those under the age of

64, while the population over

65 is projected to grow by 40%.

• There were 729 business

starts in the region in 2018 and

a 3.4% job vacancy rate.

• The 2018 forest fire season

resulted in 151 fires that

burned 72,856 hectares within

our region.

• There are more than 180

annual festivals or special

events within the Columbia-

Basin Boundary.

The 2019 Snapshot Report is

part of the State of the Basin

Initiative that monitors and

reports on indicators of social,

economic, cultural and environmental

well-being in the

Columbia-Basin Boundary.

The initiative helps inform

citizens and organizations

through access to accurate,

credible and timely information;

encourage understanding

of complex issues; signal

areas to celebrate achievements

or identify challenges; and

motivate discussion, information

sharing and collaborative

actions.

Andrea Superstein

jazzes Rossland

Andrea brings her modern take on

jazz to Rossland this January! ‘Super,’

as she is affectionately known, is an

award-winning vocalist, composer

and arranger with lots of heart. She

has a unique approach to songwriting

and it comes out in her work.

Her performances showcase powerful

vocals that exemplify both the

gentle and the strong, the light and

the dark. They lithely navigate the

colours of the emotional spectrum

from despair to joy, deep blues to

pop confection, often in the same

song. She’s in Rossland to perform at

the Miners’ Hall on January 11.

On stage is perhaps where Superstein

shines the brightest. She

commands every room she plays,

conducting an unforgettable musical

experience with a combination of

humour, charm, razor-sharp wit and

a sincere connection with her audience.

A truly interactive experience.

Superstein’s debut at the Vancouver

International Jazz Festival earned

her a nomination for a Galaxie Rising

Star award and she later shared

the stage with Canadian female

heavyweights Laila Biali and Brandi

Disterheft.

Superstein’s latest offering, Worlds

Apart showcases her true gifts as a

vocalist, composer and arranger. The

album consists primarily of original

music in an impressive three languages

(English, French, Hebrew),

rounded out by fresh arrangements

of classic jazz standards. It celebrates

her upbringing in Quebec, current

home in Vancouver and Jewish heritage.

With jazz luminary Elizabeth

Shepherd as producer and arranger,

the new record brings Superstein’s

fresh, modern ideas to the forefront.

She breathes the here and now into

the classics, while brushing authenticity

into every note of every new

song she writes. Her stylistic range is

only surpassed by her uncanny ability

to use dynamics to create a lush

musical experience rife with emotion:

deep, raw and always heartfelt.

Join the RCAC for the next offering

in their 2019/20 Performance

Series on Saturday, January 11 at 7:30

pm. Sponsored by Teck Trail Operations,

BC Touring Council, BC Arts

Council and the Government of BC.

Tickets are available at www.rosslandartscouncil.com

Andrew John Porter

1934-2019

Peacefully and surrounded by his

loving family, Andrew John Porter

passed away on December 11, 2019

in Trail, BC. Andy was born in

Vancouver, BC. on December 2, 1934

to parents Mary and Andy.

Andy grew up in Trail and started his

career as a butcher working for his

uncle. He moved to Kaslo in 1956

where he met the love of his life Betty

(Aldous). They were married in 1957.

Andy and Betty owned and operated

Eric’s Meat Market for 40 years before

passing the torch to their son Doug.

After retirement Andy enjoyed doing

woodworking projects, trips with

family and watching sports. Andy and

Betty often made the 4 hour round

trip from Kaslo to Trail to watch their

grandsons play hockey or baseball. His

grandsons were his pride and joy. Andy

will be remembered for his great sense

of humour, his love of life, family and

all the people he met along the way. He

welcomed everyone to his home and

would most likely offer them a beer!

Andy was predeceased by his sister

Rosemary Christensen, brothers-inlaw

Charlie Christensen and Charlie

Klein.

Left to mourn his loss are his wife

Betty, son Doug (Denise), daughter

Holly (Derrick) Bouma; grandsons

Erik (Morgan), and Luke (Alexa);

step-granddaughters Jennifer, Shauna

(Ryan), and Tara (Yoeun); sister-inlaw

Ruth Klein; nieces and nephews

Karen (Ed), Rick, Kathy (Andre), Joan

(Brad), Ron (Deanne) and Jennifer

(Gary).

A celebration of life will be held at a

later date in Kaslo, BC. Eric Toneff of

Alternatives Funeral and Cremation

Services has been entrusted with

arrangements.

Donations in Andy’s memory may be

made to the Parkinson Society of BC.

You are invited to leave a personal

message of condolence at the family’s

online register at www.myalternatives.ca

Andy’s family would like to thank the

staff at Rosewood Village for their

care and compassion. We will be

forever grateful. Also thank you for

your kindness to Betty, who faithfully

visited every day. We all appreciate

that too.

Andy, Dad, Grandpa you will be

forever loved and forever missed. You

will always be our hero and the wind

beneath our wings.

Meet Boswell, our chirping long-haired black and white tuxedo.

This chill cat is one of the friendliest, most social cats we have

sheltered here. While he has as good an appetite for food as he has

for affection, he would give up food if he had to choose between

the two. He also loves to have his amazing hair brushed, just not

down around by his back legs. He has an unusual undercoat of

white fur. If you want joy for the holidays, come in to find Boswell

at The the BC SPCA Nelson Branch.

Trust CEO looks

ahead to 2020

This coming year the Trust is turning

25. It’s a chance to celebrate all

that we have been able to accomplish

together with people and communities.

It’s also a time to recognize and

honour those who saw an opportunity

in 1995 to create this unique, regional

organization that would support the

efforts by the people of the Columbia

Basin to create a legacy of social,

economic and environmental wellbeing

in the region most affected by

the Columbia River Treaty. The focus

then was on the future and in this

coming year, we’ll be asking residents

to look ahead to the next 25 years.

We are entering the last year of

our five-year Columbia Basin Management

Plan. This plan sets out 13

primary strategic priorities and has

shaped our programming and initiatives

since 2016. Last year, we delivered

a record $62.6 million in benefits

to our communities through more

than 70 programs and initiatives supporting

over 1,750 projects.

The Trust supports regional priorities

that enhance our quality of life

and make this region such a desirable

place to live. Significant investments

in affordable housing, creating techenabled

spaces, broadband, ecosystem

enhancement and environmental

education, child care and arts, culture

and heritage are only a few examples

of the work we are doing to support

regional priorities.

The Trust’s focus as we move into

2020 is engaging with people in the

Columbia Basin about their bold and

innovative ideas for the future of this

region. We’ve already started some of

the engagement by speaking with our

board, staff and advisory committees.

Starting in the spring, we will be hosting

conversations in communities

and online about where people see

opportunities.

What will this plan look like? What

are we hoping to achieve? What can

we learn from the past that will inform

how we work in the future? What do

we want our region to look like five,

10, 15, even 25 years from now? These

questions will form the basis of our

discussions with residents in 2020.

Watch for more details at engage.ourtrust.org.

Lastly, the Trust will be hosting our

symposia in the fall. For the first time

we are hosting the events in two locations

to allow more people to take

part. One in Trail, October 2 to 4 and

one in Golden October 23 to 25. It

will also mark the final stage of our

community engagement process and

the start of reporting back on what we

heard. Save the date and visit symposium.ourtrust.org

for more details.

“2020 will be an exciting year and

I look forward to celebrating and

engaging with people from Rossland

to Fernie to Valemount,” says Johnny

Strilaeff, president and chief executive

officer of Columbia Basin Trust.

Columbia Basin Trust

Campaign challenges

stigma

According to a BC survey conducted

by Insights West in 2018,

more than 70% of respondents felt

people living with dementia experience

stigma.

Stigma which is negative attitudes

and misconceptions held by

family, friends and professionals

can be a barrier that prevents people

from seeking out a diagnosis if they

are beginning to see possible symptoms,

or it may keep them from

accessing services.

This January, residents of Castlegar

and other West Kootenay communities

are invited to take part

in Alzheimer’s Awareness Month,

a national campaign focused on

changing the general public’s perceptions

of what it means to live

with Alzheimer’s disease and other

dementias. Changing perceptions is

key to reducing stigma, which ultimately

supports people living with

dementia to stay active and engaged

in the community.

The Alzheimer Society of BC connects

people living with dementia,

their caregivers and family members

to support and education at any

point in the disease through First

Link® dementia support.

Castlegar and other West Kootenay

residents can connect to support

by asking their healthcare provider

for a referral or by calling the First

Link® Dementia Helpline at 1-800-

936-6033. To learn more about

the Alzheimer Society of B.C. and

David Suzuki bringing

climate talk to Trail

“The way we see the world shapes

the way we treat it.” That’s a quote

from David Suzuki who is coming

to Trail on May 1, 2020 to speak at

a public event at the Trail Memorial

Centre.

An evening with David Suzuki -

‘Human impact on our environment’

will feature his observations about

our collective impact on the environment

and what we need to do to

address the climate crisis.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

to hear one of Canada’s most

respected scientists and environmental

advocates share his insights

and experiences in a no-nonsense,

exciting and enlightening evening,

in person. There will also be a

question and answer period after his

presentation.

Bill Van Beek is chair of the Lower

Columbia Community Development

Team Society (LCCDTS) and their

sustainability committee is organizing

Dr. Suzuki’s visit. “The outcome

we hope to see from this event is help

with building capacity in our communities

to be able to address ideas

of how we can have an impact on the

climate crisis. This is an opportunity

to us, for our communities, to take

the initiative and take steps to build a

stronger and more resilient economy

and healthy communities,” he says.

Suzuki’s theme is the anthropocene,

the current geological age

when human activity has been the

dominant influence on climate and

the environment. Humanity has

experienced massive growth and

change in population, science, technology,

consumption and economics

that have endowed us with the power

to alter the biological, physical and

chemical properties of the planet.

Now we have to decide how we

respond to the climate crisis and how

we change course again to reduce our

impact and achieve sustainability.

Morag Carter is executive director

of the Community Skills Centre

and chairs the LCCDTS sustainability

committee. She worked for the

David Suzuki Foundation for several

years and asked him to come to Trail

and speak.

“Throughout his career, Dr. Suzuki

has been a passionate advocate for a

healthy environment and for healthy

people, especially children. We’re

thrilled that he is able to come back

to the Kootenays next year,” Carter

says.

Suzuki will also be speaking in an

exclusive engagement with grade 11

and 12 students earlier in the day.

“We’re bringing 700 students and

staff to the Charles Bailey Theatre

from area high schools to spend time

learning with Dr. Suzuki,” Carter

adds.

Tickets for the evening event are

available at the Charles Bailey Theatre

box office and online www.trailarts.com

Distraction: Dangerous,

Careless, Preventable

It’s a scene that is far too familiar

on roads across Canada: a cell phone

sounds an alert, the driver reaches

for the phone and in the short time

it takes to read the screen, a collision

has occurred.

Distracted driving is a trend on the

rise, a dangerous and life-threatening

behaviour that must be stopped. To

mark this year’s National Safe Driving

Week, the Canada Safety Council and

the Insurance Brokers Association of

Canada (IBAC) share a crucial message:

Distraction behind the wheel is

entirely preventable. Just don’t do it.

The statistics: Distracted driving

tatistics are understated because disraction

isn’t always easy to prove. In

atal accidents where distraction was

possible factor, there may not be

vidence of phone usage or, sadly, a

iving witness to tell the story. This

as resulted in a significant undereporting

of the issue still, the data

urrently available reveals staggering

umbers.

According to Transport Canada,

istraction was a contributing factor

n 21% of fatal collisions and 27% of

ollisions resulting in serious injury

n 2016. Comparatively, those numers

were reported at 16 and 22%

espectively, in 2006.

The Canadian Council of Motor

ransportation Administrators

CCMTA) provides further context

o these numbers: 1.7% of fatal colliions

and 1.9% of collisions resulting

n serious injury involved electronic

ommunication devices between

01014. While more recent statisics

are not available, the prevalence

f mobile devices in today’s society

akes it a reasonable assumption that

hese numbers, too, are on the rise.

And if you’re fortunate enough

o avoid injury or fatality, you’ll still

e subject to fines and potentially

emerit points depending on your

rovince.

To further compound the financial

osts, your auto insurance premiums

ould sharply increase if you’re found

o have been operating a vehicle while

istracted.

“Insurance is all about risk and disracted

driving is an extremely risky

ehavior,” said Peter Braid, Chief

xecutive Officer of IBAC. “That’s

hy insurance brokers are partnering

with the Canada Safety Council to

raise awareness of the danger and

encourage drivers to keep their eyes

on the road. The stakes are high

death, injury, property damage, fines

and rising insurance premiums.

Whatever the distraction, it’s not

worth the risk.”

The challenge: The challenge in

addressing this issue is cognitive dissonance

and, where distracted driving

is concerned, willingly engaging

in behaviours that are known to contribute

to the likelihood of collisions.

Studies in provinces across Canada

have borne out the same result: a

majority of drivers understand that

distracted driving is dangerous and

illegal; yet, the same respondents

report using their devices behind the

wheel anyway.

“Personal accountability is a major

component of society’s role in reducing

distracted driving deaths,” said

Gareth Jones, president of the Canada

Safety Council. “If you’re in the majority

of road users who understand the

risks, you owe it to your family and

to fellow road users to put the phone

away and otherwise minimize distractions.

It’s a choice that each of us

has completely within our control.

Building a culture of safe driving happens

one person and one decision at a

time, so let’s choose well.”

Other types of distraction: While

the topic of distracted driving is often

discussed in the context of texting and

calling behind the wheel, other forms

of distraction exist and can also be

harmful. Distracted driving is characterized

as any action that removes

your focus from the road. This can

include eating, adjusting music, heat

or GPS, applying makeup and interacting

with passengers in the vehicle.

Tips to avoid distraction behind the

wheel:

• Put your phone on silent or

on Do Not Disturb mode. You

won’t be tempted by an alert

you don’t hear.

• Even better, use an app or a

built-in function that activates

a Do Not Disturb feature

automatically when connected

to your vehicle’s Bluetooth

or when increased speed is

detected.

• Out of sight, out of mind put

your phone in a glove compartment,

a zipped purse or

knapsack, or even the back

seat.

• Make sure to leave enough

time in your schedule to eat

and groom before getting in

the car.

• Ensure that your temperature,

music and GPS are set before

you leave.

• If it’s really that important, pull

over.

Above all else, remember that driving

is a potentially deadly task that

requires your full attention. You

wouldn’t take a call while operating

a bulldozer; why do the same with

a vehicle capable of going at much

higher speeds?

Light Up the Hospital!

Your donation to this year’s Light Up

the Hospital! campaign will allow us

to purchase an ultrasound machine to

perform cardiac ultrasounds.

A cardiac ultrasound, or echocardiogram,

is a painless test which

uses sound waves to provide detailed

images of the valves, muscles and

chambers of the heart to aid in diagnosis,

treatment and follow up in patients

with suspected or known heart disease.

Echocardiograms are one of the

most widely used diagnostic tests in

cardiology and are essential to early

diagnosis of cardiac issues. There are

currently approximately 95 echocardiograms

performed every month at

Kootenay Lake Hospital and the wait

list for this test is up to four months.

The addition of another cardiac ultrasound

machine will allow us to perform

more than twice the number of

echocardiograms, reducing the wait

time for this essential test.

KLH’s Internal Medicine Specialist,

Dr. Brandon Tuvel says, “Your generous

donation will help patients in need

of cardiac care to be assessed and diagnosed

earlier, ultimately leading to the

best possible outcomes.”

Any funds raised in excess of our

goal will be directed to the purchase of

other priority medical equipment for

Kootenay Lake Hospital.
