Proactivity in COVID-19
containment efforts encouraged
It seems as though almost overnight the novel coronavirus
COVID-19 has changed the world. Spread containment efforts have
led to restrictions in travel, public events and social gatherings of all
kinds. It has created closures of restaurants, schools, sports events
and theatre productions and, as the spread extends, restrictions
deepen and become more defined and entrenched. But there is good
to be seen in every difficult situation and, although this virus knows
no boundaries or borders, it has most certainly brought the world
together in a unified approach to meeting this challenge head-on.
At the core of the issue is public safety. While we may be inconvenienced
by changes to routine and everything we rely on in our daily
lives, the steps we take now will ultimately define the extent of the
spread and the impact to the health of people in Canada and around
the world. With this in mind, the Canada Safety Council fully supports
the direction being provided by federal government and public
health officials as well as the measures being taken by Canadian
industries, organizations and individuals in preventing the spread of
the virus, which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health
The CSC has also taken steps to limit spread in restricting access
to the office, in relying on virtual meetings and in enabling remote
work arrangements that ensure continuation of services from the
contained environment of home.
“At times like these, there’s a real need – an imperative – to prioritize
the health and safety of the communities we work and live in and
more specifically each other,” said Gareth Jones, president and CEO
of the Canada Safety Council. “Coronavirus is highly communicable
and has demonstrated its lethal potential particularly to the elderly
and people with comorbidities and compromised immune systems
around the world. And in the absence of a vaccine to immunize the

Silver City Days cancelled
Federal and provincial government
health officials strongly recommend
social distancing and the cancellation of
large events to help prevent the spread of
COVID-19. Therefore, the City of Trail
and the Silver City Days Planning Committee
have decided to cancel Silver City
Days, scheduled for May 6 -10, 2020.
“We understand the cancellation of
Silver City Days is very disappointing,”
said Councillor Colleen Jones, chair of
the Silver City Days Planning Committee.
“Silver City Days is a huge event that
draws thousands of people into various
Trail venues. Considering the importance
of COVID-19 prevention and the
health and safety of our community, our
only choice was to cease planning immediately
and to cancel this year’s event.”
The committee is now contacting
the sponsors, volunteers, community
groups, local organizations and vendors,
who previously committed their donations
and services, to inform them of the
cancellation. “There are so many moving
parts to this event,” said Jones. “We are
very sympathetic to those who rely on
events such as Silver City Days for fundraising
and revenue, but everyone thus
far has been very understanding considering
the extraordinary circumstance.”
Riverfront Food Fair vendors will
receive their deposits back and the
city will work directly with Shooting
Star Amusements and the booked
entertainers to resolve any contractual
“Lastly, I would like to express our
gratitude to those sponsors, volunteers
and organizations who continue to
dedicate their time and resources to the
success of Silver City Days,” said Jones.
“This event continues to thrive because
of your support. We look forward to
working with all of you again next year.”

Yours in Conservation,
The Annual General Meeting has
been postponed until further notice
cont’d from pg 5
population perhaps we should
behave as though everyone
around us has the virus. Even
those in good health who are
seemingly unaffected should be
mindful of habits so we don’t
port the virus and infect others.”
Frequent hand-washing is
one of the best ways to be diligent
and proactive in curbing
spread. Regular washing with
soap or an alcohol-based hand
rub will kill viruses that you
may have picked up through
contacting a public surface.
Social distancing is also an
effective mitigating practice
– by maintaining a minimum
of one metre between yourself
and anyone who is coughing or
sneezing, you lessen the likelihood
of breathing in the virus.
Respiratory viruses, including
COVID-19, can be transmitted
by touch. This makes it
important, too, to avoid touching
your eyes, nose or mouth.
These are all potential points of
entry for the virus.
If you feel ill:
If you’re experiencing fever,
coughing or difficulty breathing,
don’t take any unnecessary
risks. Work from home if you’re

Do not visit the emergency department
t the hospital unless you are experiencing
evere shortness of breath. You risk puting
other patients at risk of contracting the
virus. You should also phone ahead if you
ntend on speaking with your doctor – do
ot show up unannounced and unexpected.
Self-isolation is also an effective way to
limit the spread of the virus. This should
include staying home, limiting the number
of visitors and, if possible, containing yourself
to a separate room from any housemates.
Prevention is most effective when it’s proactive.
Don’t wait until you start exhibiting
symptoms to take precautions. Wash your
hands, avoid touching your mouth, nose and
eyes, maintain social distancing and remember
to look out for each other as we continue
global efforts to contain this virus.

RDCK announces closures
All community complexes and recreation
facilities and programs operated by
the Regional District of Central Kootenay
(RDCK) have been suspended as of Monday
March 16, as part of the RDCK’s response to
the novel coronavirus/COVID-19. The closures
will be in place until further notice, for
at least four weeks.
All programs scheduled to run at these
facilities have been cancelled, including
drop-in classes, preregistered programs
and rentals. Staff will be working to process
refunds and credits. Time-based memberships
will be put on hold immediately. Customers
do not need to take any action at this
All arena ice operations will be closed for
the season and all organized sporting activities
are cancelled until further notice.
The closures affect the following:
Castlegar, Areas I & J:
• Castlegar & District Community Complex
(including Castlegar Senior’s Centre)
• Pioneer Arena
Creston, Areas A, B & C:
• Creston & District Community Complex

front office will remain open,
although programs will be cancelled.
Spring break programs to begin this week
are being evaluated and may be cancelled.
Customers who no longer wish to participate
in the spring break programs may cancel and
their payment will be refunded.
“The health and safety of our employees
and the people we serve is our first priority
and closing our facilities will help prevent
the risk and spread of infection,” said
Would your acreage benefit from soil amendment?
Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more acres within 55 km
that would benefit from using their Celgrow soil amendment. Pastures and
hay fields are good options.
Mercer Celgar will cover the costs of a Qualified Professional performing
soil sampling, obtaining government authorization and delivery costs of Celgrow
soil amendment based on access with a large truck/pup combination.
Acreage should be able to accommodate at least 6 truck/pup loads. The two
major components of Celgrow are individual wood fibres lost from the pulping
process and surplus bacteria from the wastewater biological treatment
facility. Wood fibres enhance soil moisture retention and bacteria are a good
source of soil nutrients. The landowner is responsible for spreading and incorporating
Celgrow into their soil.

YOU AND THE LAW ®
Can You Get Your Spouse's Gambling Losses Back?
Suppose that after a 20-year long marriage
that’s been floundering for some
years, you end up separating. One thing
the court has to decide is how to divide
up your family property and family debt
after your separation.
In court, you find out that for the last
several years of your relationship, your
spouse has been syphoning money out of
your family company and gone on a gambling
spree. You knew she liked playing
the slots at the casino occasionally, but
you had no idea she used money from
the company or how much money was
involved. In the end, more than $660,000
of what was effectively family property
has gone down the drain, for good.
How will the court approach such a
The basic rule under our current Family
Law Act is that all family property and
all family debt acquired by either spouse
during the course of their relationship
are to be shared equally between them
after separation. That applies to family
property and family debt incurred from
the date you started to live together or
got married (whichever is earlier). It also
applies to common-law couples legally
treated as spouses.
If an equal division would be “significantly
unfair,” the court can allocate
such property and debt differently. This
is a high threshold to overcome, however,
and the court will always look at
the unique situation involved to decide
For example, if both of you liked to gamble,
and you both racked up gambling
debts and losses in the normal course of
your relationship, the court is unlikely
to treat these debts and losses differently
than other family debt or property; upon
separation, you’d each likely be responsible
for sharing such debts or property
The situation may well be different
though if it turns out that, without the
other’s knowledge and consent, one of
you squanders a substantial amount of
family property by an uncontrolled gambling
Let’s go back to our earlier example. In
a recent case, the BC Supreme Court
concluded that the wife had wrongfully
used up over $660,000 of a family company’s
money for her gambling. Had that
money stayed in the company, she would
have been entitled to one half of it. So
the court awarded her husband one half
of the misappropriated funds, i.e., over
$330,000 in compensation, plus almost
$40,000 in forensic accounting costs.
It’s important to point out that this 2019
case was decided under our province’s
earlier family law statute, which allowed
re-apportionment (i.e. unequal division)
of family assets if an equal division
would be (simply) unfair. That’s a lower
threshold than the “significantly unfair”
hurdle you have to overcome under our
current Family Law Act if you want to get
a greater-than-equal share. But on similar
facts the outcome could well be the
same for a case decided under today’s
family law rules.
Each family’s situation and circumstances
are different. If you’re facing a separation
or divorce, consult an experienced
family lawyer for help with yours.

Walk for Alzheimer’s
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is enormously
proud of its IG Wealth Management
Walk for Alzheimer’s, which has
been an instrumental fundraiser to support
people affected by dementia.
While the IG Wealth Management Walk
for Alzheimer’s is moving away from inperson
events due to COVID-19, the
Alzheimer Society of B.C. wants to assure
participants and supporters that the event
has not been cancelled. There are exciting
plans in development on how we can bring
communities and individuals together
virtually on Sunday, May 3. More will be
shared in the coming weeks about how you
can get involved.
“Our first priority is the safety of our
participants, staff, volunteers and their
family and friends,” says Cathryn France,
the Alzheimer Society of BC’s director of
resource development. “The IG Wealth
Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is our
biggest fundraising event of the year and
the funds raised allow us to provide critical
programs and services. We are committed
to coming together and having this event
go ahead in a different way, perhaps virtually.
Please stay tuned for more information,
but keep May 3 free in your calendar.”
This decision was informed by the latest
recommendations from the Public Health
Agency of Canada and the BC Centre for
Disease Control. More information about
the IG Wealth Management Walk for
Alzheimer’s and how you can attend will
be available within the coming weeks. Even
though it will look different, the event will
undoubtedly remain a chance to honour
and celebrate people affected by dementia.

FortisBC set to support BC
during COVID-19 outbreak
As businesses and government take additional
steps to contain the spread of the
novel coronavirus COVID-19, FortisBC
has taken several steps to protect the health
and safety of our customers and employees
while maintaining service levels and
responding quickly to any emergency or
First and foremost, we are working to
keep our employees healthy. We’ve asked
all employees to self-isolate if they feel any
symptoms associated with COVID-19 and,
if those symptoms worsen, to seek medical
attention. To increase social distancing
at our offices, we’re organizing ways for
employees to work from home when possible
to decrease the number of people at
our office facilities. We’ve also asked our
employees to cancel any in-person meetings
with vendors for the time being and
limit the number of people in any face-toface
To assist in containment, we have also
cancelled any non-essential work related
travel for our staff and, for any staff travelling
for personal or work reasons, will be
asking them to self-isolate for two weeks
upon their return to ensure they have not
contracted the virus. We’ve also closed our
offices to public visits for the time being
and meeting with more vendors and contractors
via teleconference rather than in

Pixie is a one-yearold
female black &
white beauty! As
a new arrival and
a stray, we are still
getting to know
her. What we have
learned is that at
first she’s a little
shy, hiding behind
her curiosity and
and she becomes
frisky, friendly and focused on you. Loves To Play is her theme
song. Recently spayed, she is ready for her new furever home.

Apollo came to us as
a stray with some skin
issues. He will be on one
pill a day for life but his
skin issues are well on the
mend and his beautiful
brindle coat is starting to
show! You would never
know this guy is 8 years
old (other than his teeth
which are worn down
from chewing tennis
balls). He’s full of life and
energy but is also up
for a good cuddle and
belly rub. Unfortunately,
even though this guy is
older he has never had any proper training. His new family will
need to have the time and patience to teach this sweet guy how
to behave in a home (he’s a bit of a counter surfer we hear). He
loves playing with toys, especially anything that squeaks, and gets
along with other dogs. He does not do well with chickens. This dog
has so much potential, he just needs the right family to give him
a chance. So come down to the West Kootenay BCSPCA and meet
this lovable guy.

BC’s Provincial Health Officer promulgated
an order under the Public Health Act entitled
“Mass Gatherings re: COVID-19”. The
order provides that every municipality and
regional district is prohibited from permitting
the gathering of people in excess of 50
people at a place of which the local government
is the owner, occupier or operator,
or for which it is otherwise responsible. The
Order expires on May 30, 2020 and is subject
to revision, cancellation or extension
by the Provincial Health Officer.
The order applies to community centres,
recreation facilities, meeting facilities, theatres,
and other places owned, occupied or

For the benefit of all, many organizations and businesses have cancelled or postponed their events. Thank you for your understanding.
We can all work together to stay healthy by staying a little bit apart, for now. Together we can flatten the curve.
