Local author Owen Spears.

Surviving the Haiti

earthquake

It started as a class trip and ended with a

rescue mission. In 2010 a group of students

arrived in Haiti to work on a humanitarian

project; just four hours later the devastating

earthquake hit.

Owen Spears shares his experience waiting

for rescue and about the kindness of

locals in his memoir, Hour Four: Surviving

the Earthquake in Haiti. The local

launch of Spears’ book takes place Thursday,

March 5 at 7 pm at the Nelson Public

Library. Books will be available for sale; $5

of every book purchase will be donated to

Haiti Arise, a community-based charity.

SEASON

IS JUST AROUND

THE CORNER.

Report shows high

snowpack in RDKB

The BC River Forecast Centre released

the latest Snow Survey and Water Supply

Bulletin, showing higher than normal

levels for both the Boundary and West

Kootenay snowpacks. The Boundary

snowpack is at 128% of normal, which is

a 7% increase since January 1, 2020. The

West Kootenay snowpack is also higher

than normal at 126% and it has increased

15% since last reported.

“Snowpack is one of the three components

that determines the rate of spring

runoff and although the current snowpack

is high this does not necessarily equate

to a flood event in spring. The amount

of snow received at high elevations in

February, March and April can vary

widely and snowpack levels can increase

or decrease significantly through the late

winter months,” said Mark Stephens,

interim emergency program manager at

the RDKB.

The RDKB emergency program monitors

snowpack, river levels and weather

forecasts daily and communicates regularly

with provincial staff at the BC River

Forecast Centre and emergency program

staff at Emergency Management BC.

Emergency officials also play a key role in

educating residents to prepare themselves

for any emergencies that could occur in

the region. Before the 2020 freshet, the

Emergency Program encourages residents

to do three things:

1. Ensure that drains, culverts and

other means of moving water away

from residences remain clear as the

snow continues to melt.

2. Sign-up to receive emergency

evacuation alerts on a landline,

mobile device or by email at emergency.rdkb.com

or contact the RDKB

directly at 1-800-355-7352 to get help

signing up.

3. Prepare by developing a household

emergency plan, putting

together a grab-and-go bag and connecting

with neighbours. Emergencies

teach us that knowing neighbours

and developing a neighbourhood

emergency plan can dramatically

change how we fare in an emergency

and how we recover afterwards.

“Here in the Boundary many people

are still feeling the effects of the

2018 Boundary flood and hearing

that we have another high snowpack

year this year is no doubt concerning

to some,” said Roly Russell,

RDKB Electoral Area D/Rural Grand

Forks director. “I’ve been intimately

involved in our emergency response

and recovery strategy and know that

as a community we have made great

strides in implementing the lessons

we have learned from past flooding. It

always pays to be prepared, but these

current snowpack estimates are not at

this time a cause for alarm.”

“As a regional district we have been

working with all our emergency service

partners in all levels of government

and at the community level. We

have a flood response plan, we have

refined our evacuation route planning

and improved our mapping and

communications,” said Diane Langman,

RDKB board chair. “I am confident

we are as prepared as we can be

for this freshet season.”

The RDKB Emergency Program

will update the public as new snowpack

information is available. Emergency Program

staff will continue to review flood

response plans and protocols, discuss

contingency planning with other agencies,

and complete the ongoing work underway

to recover from the 2018 Boundary flood.

Information on current river and snowpack

levels is available at emergency.rdkb.

Drug test strips now

available

People in the Interior Health (IH) region

have another tool to make safer choices

about drug use. For some, the stigma or

shame associated with seeking out substance

use services can be a barrier to

accessing the health system. Now, new

take-home drug testing strips are available

and offer an alternative to clients who

previously had to come into supervised

consumption sites or community health

centres to check their drugs.

“Because of the stigma that still surrounds

addiction, many people die from

overdose alone and at home,” said Judy

Darcy, minister of mental health and

addictions. “Giving people a simple, convenient

way to check if their drugs contain

fentanyl may help them avoid an overdose

and reduce the number of lives lost to the

unpredictable and toxic drug supply.”

The fentanyl test strips are available for

take-home at community-based agencies

in Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton, Kamloops,

Merritt, Cranbrook and Nelson. More

information on agency locations and hours

can be found on IH’s website: www.drugchecking.ca.

“For many people, there’s a certain

amount of shame associated with their

addiction, which makes it challenging for

them to access drug-checking services at

health care facilities,” said Roger Parsonage,

Interior Health executive director, clinical

operations, with responsibility for Mental

Health and Substance Use Network. “With

these take-home drug checking strips, they

can now make informed, safer choices

this service has the potential to save lives.”

A study completed by IH, Vancouver

Coastal Health (VCH) and the BC Centre

for Disease Control (BCCDC) concluded

that take-home drug checking indicated

a positive result for fentanyl in opioid

samples at a similar rate as on-site testing

at community-based agencies.

The research study was conducted from

April to July of 2019 and provided participants

with free take-home drug checking

kits, each containing five fentanyl test

strips, instructions and a survey. Results

from 994 take-home fentanyl test strips

used on opioid samples were compared to

checks on opioids conducted at health care

and community sites during the same time

period.

Take-home drug checking found 89.95%

of opioid samples contained fentanyl, while

on-site drug checking found 89.14% of

samples contained fentanyl. 27% of clients

using the take-home kit made a safer choice

if their substance tested positive for fentanyl.

(A safer choice refers to using with

a friend, using less of a substance or using

more slowly, or taking their substance to an

overdose or supervised consumption site

for use.) 96% of clients said they would use

the take-home checking kit again.

“Take-home test strips are something

clients have been asking for and now we

have some promising evidence for their

use. This is one more tool among other

strategies we have implemented to address

the ongoing opioid overdose crisis,” says

Jessica Bridgeman, IH harm reduction

coordinator. “Take-home drug checking

can be particularly helpful to those in rural

and remote communities who may not

have access to other overdose prevention

services.”

Originally intended for urine drug tests,

the use of fentanyl testing strips to check

the drugs themselves for fentanyl was pioneered

by VCH in 2016. A small amount of

a drug is mixed with a few drops of water,

the test strip is inserted into the solution

and a positive or negative for fentanyl is

revealed within seconds.

Selkirk College

Bursary Tea

On Saturday, February 1 the Canadian

Federation of University Women, Nelson

and District chapter (CFUW) sat down to

lunch with 200 fans of higher learning at

Mary Hall for the annual Selkirk College

Bursary Tea to celebrate and honour the

2020 Selkirk College bursary recipients.

There were over 140 individual bursaries

awarded totalling over $160,000.

The afternoon included words of welcome

and inspiration from Selkirk President

Angus Graeme. In attendance along

with numerous bursary recipients were

family, friends, staff and faculty.

On behalf of the donors, Danielle Bader

spoke about being a third year nursing

student bursary recipient herself while she

was raising four children and how much

this meant to her. Since then, after nursing

for almost 20 years, she and her family

decided to create their own bursary to

help other third year nursing students. Her

words were profoundly moving.

The CFUW awarded their Selkirk bursary

to Heather AC Anderson. Heather is

also in the nursing program. She is in her

first year of the four year program. When

her youngest child started school, Heather

decided it was the perfect timing for her to

continue her education.

The CFUW Nelson works vigorously

to support the continuing education of

women and girls. They administer both

this bursary and the Elizabeth Wallace

Scholarship for high school students.

The Selkirk College Bursary Tea was

a wonderful way for bursary recipients

and donors to connect over a lovely

lunch served by Selkirk’s culinary school

students.

The Canadian Federation of Women

Nelson and District chapter welcomes

new members who are passionate about

empowering women and girls through lifelong

education.

NELSON

Meet Molly, a beautiful young velvety gray cat who quietly

stares into your eyes. When she first arrived, she was full of fear,

anxiety, and stress like many a new owner surrender, only more

so. She had been a companion to only one person who could no

longer care for her. Lately she comes out of her hiding place to

approach almost everyone, sits at the door to ask for attention,

rubs up against you to get some pets or lap time, then does

spiraling zoomies up and down her tall cat tree. If your home is

calm, come meet Molly.

RDKB composting

program to expand

The Regional District of Kootenay

Boundary has received a $2,364,012

Low Carbon Economy Leadership

Fund Organics Infrastructure Program

grant to expand the Grand Forks

regional landfill composting program.

The expansion will cost a total of $3.5

million with the RDKB, federal and

provincial governments each funding

one third of the project costs.

“We were already a leader in our

region for our unique curbside collection

program in rural areas in the

Boundary. With this funding in place,

we will be the only rural regional district

in BC that collects and processes all

Your local

the food waste materials in our region

in addition to much of the industrial

and commercial organic waste,” said

Diane Langman, RDKB board chair.

This program will expand the regional

district’s organics processing capacity to

include food waste materials from the

industrial, commercial and institutional

sector throughout the Boundary region

and initiate food waste collection for

residents of Greenwood. The expanded

composting facility at the Grand Forks

regional landfill site will primarily process

food waste, wood, yard and garden

waste. It will help conserve landfill

space, reduce leachate and greenhouse

gas emissions and produce a useful

product in the form of compost.

pw Flyer depot

SAVE your time.

SAVE your money.

SAVE your environment.



Upgrades to the Grand Forks composting

operation will include:

• Installation of impermeable surfaces

• Leachate collection and control

• Surface and storm water diversion

• Aeration of composting bunkers

• Enhanced odour control by covering

organic materials with specialized,

GORE® membrane covers.

The RDKB has also partnered with the

Regional District of Central Kootenay in

a $2.3 million cross-regional composting

program which has received a $1,536,585

Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund

Organics Infrastructure Program

grant. The joint RDCK-RDKB program

will target the processing of organic

waste from regional curbside

collection from RDKB

Electoral Areas A, B/Lower-

Columbia/Old Glory, Rossland,

Warfield, Trail, Montrose

and Fruitvale, as well as from

the cities of Castlegar and Nelson

in the RDCK. It will also

include organic waste from

the commercial sector in both

regional districts.

Once all these organics infrastructure

projects are completed,

curbside collection will

capture almost half the food

waste produced in the RDCK

and the majority of food waste

produced in the RDKB.

The program will reduce

the RDKB’s greenhouse gas

emissions (GHG) across the

region and is a key initiative

toward becoming a carbon

neutral local government.

Composting is effective

at reducing GHG because

organic materials composted

in an oxygen-rich environment

produce carbon dioxide

whereas organic materials

buried in a landfill produce

methane. Both carbon dioxide

and methane are greenhouse

gases, but methane is

up to 27 times more potent.

The Organics Infrastructure

Program combines $10 million

in federal funding from

the Low Carbon Economy

Leadership Fund, $10 million

from the Province and $10

million in matching funds

from local government applicants

and their partners.

Help is essential for bat

disease monitoring

BC bats are threatened by disease and

researchers continue to ask the public for

help. White-nose syndrome (WNS), a fungal

disease responsible for the death of millions

of bats in eastern North America, is

spreading on the west coast.

Confirmed to the west and east of the

Cascade Mountains in Washington State,

just 150 km south of the BC-US border,

the presence of the fungus is very worrisome

for the health of our bat populations.

The disease has near 100% mortality for

some species of bats exposed to the fungus,

including the familiar little brown myotis.

Although devastating for bats, WNS does

not affect humans.

Tracking the spread of the disease relies

on public assistance. “Detection of WNS in

BC is challenging because our bats appear

to hibernate in small groups across the

province,” says Leigh Anne Isaac, coordinating

biologist with the Kootenay Community

Bat Project (KCBP). “To monitor

the spread of the disease, we need more

eyes on the ground. Outdoor enthusiasts

and homeowners with roosts on their

property may be the first to find evidence

of trouble.”

Signs of the disease include unusual bat

activity in winter and the appearance of

dead bats outdoors as they succumb to the

effects of WNS. “We are encouraging the

public to report dead bats or any sightings

of winter bat activity to the KCBP toll free

phone number, website, or email below. Bat

carcasses will be submitted for testing for

White-nose syndrome and would provide

the earliest indication of the presence of the

disease in BC,” says Isaac. Reports of winter

bat activity will help focus research, monitoring

and protection efforts.

While bats are generally hibernating out

of sight this time of year, not every winter

bat sighting signals disaster. Bats often

hibernate by themselves in a woodpile or

basement entryway. If possible, these sleeping

bats should be left alone keep your

distance, snap a photo and report to the

KCBP. If you must move a bat, visit www.

bcbats.ca for advice. Remember to never

touch a bat with your bare hands.

Bat are also occasionally spotted flying

on relatively warm winter days or evenings.

Healthy bats may wake up to drink or even

eat, if insects are active. Enjoy these sightings

and remember to let us know when

and where winter bat activity was observed

as possible for further information. Never

touch a dead bat with your bare hands.

Help is essential for bat

disease monitoring

cont’d from pg 28

Please note that if you or your pet has

been in direct contact with the bat you will

need further information regarding the

risk of rabies to you and your pet.

Currently there are no treatments for

White-nose syndrome. However, mitigating

other threats to bat populations and

preserving and restoring bat habitat may

provide bat populations with the resilience

to rebound. This is where the KCBP and

the general public can help. Funded by

the Columbia Basin Trust, Habitat Conservation

Trust Foundation, the Forest

Enhancement Society of BC, the Province

of BC, the Habitat Stewardship Program

and the Regional District of the East and

Central Kootenays (via their respective

local conservation funds), the KCBP works

with the Kootenay residents and local governments

on public outreach activities,

public reports of roosting bats in buildings,

the Annual BC Bat Count, and developing

bat-friendly communities.

Fundraiser night ski at

Salmo Ski Hill!

Paddle power and slope shredders collide

for a night of fundraising fun at Salmo

Ski Hill on Friday, February 21.

Ambler, the Nelson-based hat company

with a heart for kids and a love of the

outdoors, is hosting the event as a fundraiser

for Wildsight’s Columbia River

Field School. “Ambler is about encouraging

people to get outside, enjoy nature and

put a little adventure in their lives,” says

co-owner Christian Rawles.“Combining

a fun, family night of skiing with a fundraiser

seemed like a great way to bring

awareness to the field school and to help

fund the program.”

Ambler’s commitment to this program

extends far beyond the family ski night.

The company has generously committed

$10,000 to the Columbia River Field

School for 2020. “When we heard about

the field school, we knew that was exactly

what we needed to be a part of,” says

Rawles. “The field school is a wonderful

combination of adventure, environmental

education and extended time in nature.

We believe that providing opportunities

like this to our youth are so important for

the future of the environment and also for

their mental health.”

The Columbia River Field School takes

students from grades 1012 on an exploratory

journey down the Columbia River,

learning the river’s story and our place in

it, explains Monica Nissen, Wildsight Education

Director.

“It’s a 14 day journey a hands-on

course with high school credits about the

watershed in which we live and the river

that connects us all in the Columbia Basin,”

says Nissen. “It’s outdoor education and

skill development, but it is also science,

social studies and leadership…all through

a powerful, lived experience.”

The ski night takes place at Salmo Ski

Hill on Friday, February 21, 5:30 to 9 pm.

Lift tickets are by donation; donate $30 or

more and Ambler will give you a free hat!

Sail Nelson receives award

Sail Nelson is the recipient of Canada’s

Best Boating Safety Initiative Award for

2019! This award is presented to an organization

that creates an event or a new initiative

promoting safe boating practices in

Canada. There were several other nominees

for 2019 and the competition was tough!

However, Sail Nelson pulled through for

the win.

Sail Nelson was nominated by BC Sailing

for our Nelson Safe Boating event, which we

held in Nelson at Lakeside Park on May 25,

2019. The third week of May is the National

Safe Boating Week for Canada and the US,

when most of us boaters launch our boating

season and get out on the water. It kicks

off with the May long weekend.

I decided that Sail Nelson should bring

together some of our safety partners to help

the community learn more about safe boating

practices. And so, the first annual Nelson

Safe Boating Event was born!

When I sent out the call for participation,

we had a great number of organizations

and partners that wanted to join Sail

Nelson with this initiative! These partners

made the event a great success and brought

so much valuable information to the public.

Join us on May 23, 2020 at Lakeside Park

for the next annual Nelson Safe Boating

Event! Information can be found at the

event Facebook page, Sail Nelson’s website,

or by contacting Penny at sailnelson@outlook.com
