We have had many reactions from

“love the new shape” to “hate the new

We were faced with some pretty

heavy decision making when COVID

could either lay people off or whittle

emergency funding program from the Government

of Canada, designed to help Canada’s

more vulnerable populations during

impacts. The area that CFNKLS serves

has been allocated $8000 in funding.

Applications and information on the Fund are

CBT offers support to businesses

In response to ongoing COVID-19-related

developments—including the re-opening of

many businesses—Columbia Basin Trust is

expanding the ways it can help people and businesses

move forward.

“The current phase of the provincial government’s

restart plan has introduced new requirements

with public health and safety as the

priority,” said Johnny Strilaeff, Columbia Basin

Trust President and Chief Executive Officer. “To

help the region’s businesses and workforce navigate

these changes, we are adjusting our programs

and services to provide relevant support,

such as low-interest loans to help with modifications

to business operations, free advice on how

to become more tech-savvy, wage subsidies to

hire summer students, and support for shortterm

training.”

The Trust has revised four programs:

Small Business Working Capital Loans:

These loans provide working capital and operating

funds to help small businesses and social

enterprises adapt to the new re-opening requirements.

The low-interest loans can now be used

for capital expenses, such as equipment needed

for re-opening, and the maximum loan amount

has increased to $40,000. Applicants may now

apply even if they have received funding from

other programs. The financing can also be used

for items like rent, wages, inventory, renovations

and personal protective equipment. Learn more

at ourtrust.org/wcloans.

Basin Business Advisors: This program is

putting an emphasis on helping small- and

medium-sized businesses, including social

enterprises, become more tech-savvy. This

is in addition to its ongoing goal of making

businesses stronger through free, confidential,

one-to-one business advisement. For example,

a business might need to increase their online

presence, develop an e-commerce website,

create a digital marketing plan, move to cloud

based file management or boost manufacturing

productivity. This program is delivered by Community

Futures. Learn more at

bbaprogram.ca.

Summer Works: The Trust

is increasing the number of

small businesses that can

receive wage subsidies to hire

students. Although the program

had already closed for

the 2020 summer season, it

is being re-opened to accept

applications as of June 5, 2020.

Administered by College of the

Rockies, this program provides

wage subsidies to help small

businesses hire high school

and post-secondary students,

in part-time or full-time

positions, over the summer.

Learn more at ourtrust.org/

summerworks.

Training Fee Support: Th i s

SEASONAL SERVICES INC.

take short-term courses, online or in-person,

that help them secure employment. Now, even

more people will be eligible. This includes

self-employed people, plus workers who have

been temporarily laid off, have had their hours

reduced or need to diversify their skills to adapt

to businesses that have modified their products

or services due to COVID-19. People can now

access $1,000, up from $800. The program can

also support up to $7,500 of training costs for

Specialized Skills Training, now including early

certification. Learn more at ourtrust.org/tfs.

Make A Change

Canada announces

student bursaries

On January 23, 2020, Make A Change Canada

held a 15th anniversary celebration event in its

founding city of Nelson,. To celebrate this milestone,

the organization brought in the Montreal

Canadiens Alumni team and formed their very

own all-star team, the Kootenay Patricks, to take

the ice in support of Make A Change Canada.

The event sold out to a crowd of 1,500 and filled

the Nelson and District Community Complex

to capacity, for a night to live on in the memories

of local residents for years come.

“We held this event as our way of giving back

to the local communities that gave us our start

over 15 years ago,” says Anne-Marie Edgar,

Executive Director of Make A Change Canada.

“Not only did this hockey game highlight the

work of Make A Change Canada, but it is also

allowing us to offer a total of six bursaries to residents

of the West Kootenay to take our online

Certificate in Applied Web Development and

Design program.”

This six-month program, delivered entirely

online, is differentiated through its uniquely

supportive and flexible service model for students

in the program. The available bursaries

will cover the full cost of tuition to help recipients

upgrade their employment skills, be more

competitive in the labour market, and improve

their chances of finding meaningful employment

or launching a new business. Graduates

of the program have moved on to successfully

establish themselves in a wide range of careers

in fields such as administration, marketing,

customer service, the arts, and information

technology.

Make A Change Canada is a certified

educational institution under Employment

and Social Development Canada (ESDC). If

you reside in the West Kootenays and want to

learn more about the bursaries and program

eligibility requirements for the online Certificate

in Applied Web Development and Design

program, please contact Mary Alton, Program

Manager, at 1-888-927-7473 Ext. 2 or by email.

The program runs twice per year, and the next

program start date is July 13, 2020.

Trail City playgrounds

& spray park re-open

The City of Trail Parks & Recreation Department

is re-opening City-owned playgrounds*

and the Gyro Park spray park starting Thursday,

June 11, 2020 as part of the City’s COVID-19

plan to carefully re-open its outdoor amenities

with a phased approach.

*Please note the playground structure at

Haley Park complex and the swing set at Pole

Park will be undergoing maintenance and will

remain closed until this work is complete. An

update will be provided.

The playgrounds were officially closed on

March 20, 2020 to help prevent the spread

of COVID-19. Since then, the City has been

working closely with representatives from provincial

and regional municipal governments to

develop re-opening plans that include enhanced

operating protocols to support the highest level

of continued COVID-19 preventative measures

for everyone in our communities.

All open playgrounds and the spray park will

be signed with the following usage guidelines:

Stay home if you are sick

Physical distance of 2 metres at all times

Bring sanitizer to clean your hands

If the park is busy, try another time

Children only on the playground structures

Take turns, be courteous

We thank everyone for their patience and

understanding as we all work together during

our re-opening phases. We also commend the

members of our community for their ongoing

diligence and dedication to COVID-19

prevention.

The City’s phased re-opening updates can

be viewed at www.trail.ca/COVID-19 or www.

trail.ca/ReOpen. Please direct all Trail Parks &

Recreation questions to parksadmin@trail.ca or

Rebuilding the

Kootenays better

In recent months, British Columbians have

come together to face an unprecedented health

crisis. Now is the time to come together to look

forward and decide on the future we need.

As governments begin providing economic

relief and helping businesses reopen safely, the

province’s COVID-19 economic stimulus investments

can provide the opportunity to build our

future back better. The impacts of these investments

will be far reaching: the kind of industries,

jobs and infrastructure works that are supported

will shape our society, our economy and our

environment for decades ahead. They will determine

our capacity to address future threats to

our health and the health of the planet.

British Columbians have a choice: build to

the status quo, continuing down the road to climate

disaster and a biodiversity crisis, or take

Scientists need

Canadians to share

wildlife observations

With COVID-19 social distancing measures

impacting scientific surveys and field research,

the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) is asking

Canadians to help them collect critical data

on the impacts of isolation on the environment.

“We are counting on Canadians now more

than ever to share their nature photos and

record their wildlife observations on iNaturalist.ca,”

said James Pagé, CWF species at risk and

biodiversity specialist. “This information is critical

to understand some of the impacts of the

quarantine on the wildlife. It’s also an opportunity

to showcase how much nature matters to

Canadians.”

CWF launched its Observations From Isolation

project on iNaturalist.ca in April, generating

more than 23,000 submissions the first wave

of the pandemic. With Canadian Environment

Day being celebrated June 5th, followed by

the opportunity to build back better. We can

direct economic stimulus towards the creation of

jobs, businesses and infrastructure that enhance

our well-being and protect the ecosystems we

depend on. We can make sure that everyone

shares in the benefits from public investments

aimed at improving our communities and restoring

the health of our environment.

Wildsight, along with many partner environmental

and community organizations, is calling

for a sustainable recovery that puts healthy ecosystems,

human health, and social justice at the

centre. Our recommendations include a long

list of economic stimulus opportunities: from

renewable energy and building retrofits to ecosystem

restoration, protected areas, active transportation,

local food security, zero waste and

Indigenous rights.

Some of these opportunities are supported by

existing provincial plans, such as CleanBC (British

Columbia’s climate action plan) which Premier

John Horgan said will be “the foundation”

Rivers to Oceans Week, the immediate goal is

to achieve 50,000 observations by Canada Day.

The long-term goal is to inspire conservation

through the new CWF Observation Nation

project.

“Canadians of all ages and abilities can help

by posting photos or sound recordings of any

wild plants or animals. The automatic identification

feature can help you figure out what species

you’ve seen, and scientists can help verify

observations virtually,” Pagé said. “This is especially

important in 2020 since some research

teams may have to limit their travel and rely

more the public data.”

The iNaturalist app and website are free and

easy to use whether observing nature safely

in your backyard, local park or further afield.

Overall, there are 2.4 million observations of

23,000 species in the Canadian database, which

was created in 2015. CWF thanks all Canadians

who have contributed to the project to date.

of the province’s economic recovery. Others,

such as ecosystem restoration and local food

security, need public support to be placed on the

agenda. And all of them will need to be adapted

to regional and local contexts.

In the coming weeks we will be launching an

initiative to discuss a sustainable recovery for the

Kootenays. We will provide a space to exchange

ideas, organize and take action to ensure our

communities are well prepared for the future and

no one is left behind.

What would a sustainable

recovery look like in the Kootenay

Region?

What kind of investments

should be a priority?

How can we best seize this

opportunity to build thriving

communities and preserve the

wild places we love?

Why report

concerning

wildlife

sightings?

Please report wildlife in

conflict to the Conservation

Officer Service 24/7 at 1-877-

952-7277. Residents can

also report sightings of bear,

cougar, coyote or wolf in an

urban area. These reports are

uploaded daily to WildSafe-

BC’s Wildlife Alert Reporting

Program (WARP), available

Love is also

contagious!

Local medical staff spreading

positive message

An emergency physician’s

idea to spread a positive message

during stressful times is

catching on around the hospital,

and now, in the community.

Dr. Linda Johannson, who works in the

Emergency Department at Nelson’s Kootenay

Lake Hospital, noticed that the pandemic

was taking a toll on staff morale.

During those early weeks, she and her colleagues

were really feeling the pressure of the

changes to their daily practice and the fear

and uncertainty about what lay ahead. Their

team, which is normally friendly and cooperative,

was feeling the impact.

She attended one of the daily on-line sessions

being offered to support physicians,

where the facilitator mentioned that, when

someone at work displays an anxious, fearful

attitude, it can be contagious to the whole

team. But, she said, the reverse is also true.

Positive attitudes can also be contagious, and

it only takes one person to make that shift

and get things started.

That’s when the idea for the ‘Love is also

contagious’ campaign was born. Johannson

got to work, and asked the Facility Engagement

Working Group for support. The Working

Group is made up of members of the

KLH medical staff

and funds projects

led by physicians

and other health

care providers that

improve the working

environment

and patient care at

KLH.

“I wanted to create a visual cue to remind

us that, because of the fear we are all experiencing,

our behaviour may not be consistent

with our usual happy, friendly personalities.

We can recognize the negative effects of that

state in each other and in ourselves, offer forgiveness,

take a pause, and choose to start

again in a loving way, rather than simply

reacting to the stress that is going on.”

“I asked my good friend, Nelson graphic

designer Marian Lowe, if she could take a

cartoon coronavirus image I had found, and

morph it into a heart, for a more friendly virus

image than the scary ones all over the news

and our internal communication memos.”

To help spread the visual reminder, Dr.

Johannson and the Facility Engagement

team had stickers and buttons made up,

along with a downloadable window sign

that anyone can print from home and display

anywhere. The image soon made its way

around the region and the province, as other

groups, including Interior Health, the Kootenay

Boundary Division of Family Practice

and Doctors of BC helped spread the positive

message.

Duncan operations update

conference call

“The ‘Love is also contagious’ message is

a simple and quick reminder of what health

care teams, community and society can prioritize

during this pandemic. This mindset has

helped disperse the fear and anxiety we are

feeling individually, to a supportive, strengthsbased

mentality as a community,” says Tanya

Momtazian, midwife and co-chair of the

working group.

Along with the Doctors of BC, the medical

staff at KLH are reminding everyone

to continue to hold the line, and follow the

direction of the Provincial Health Officer

of British Columbia. As businesses begin

to open, it might also be helpful to remember

that individual attitudes can make a big

difference.

“I think the ‘Love is also contagious’ message

is helpful for all of us to keep in mind as

we see some restrictions gradually lifting. It

serves as a reminder to be patient and respectful

of one another, recognizing that navigating

our way back to a “new normal” can be challenging

and unsettling,” says working group

member and family physician Dr. Kevin

McKechnie.

“Some of us may thrive with the lifting of

restrictions, while others of us may experience

increased anxiety and fear. We need to continue

providing support and help to our family

members, friends, neighbours, and colleagues,

recognizing that lots of restrictions remain in

place, and that significant challenges still exist

for many,” McKechnie says.

We’re hosting a conference call to provide information regarding the operation of our local facilities,

expected summer reservoir levels, and the Duncan Water Use Plan.

Meanwhile, Dr. Johannson is continuing to spread the message

that ‘Love is also contagious’ whenever she’s on shift in the ER.

“When I have time at night or in the early morning, I’ll fill up a little

bag with pins and stickers and go around the hospital to “spread love.”

People seem to really appreciate the message and the visual reminders

to take a minute and reset if they are getting stressed on shift,”

says Johannson.

“I’ve been trying to hit all shifts and all departments. I can really feel

the positive energy when I show up with my bag to hand out some love.

It’s been a lot of fun, and a side benefit has been that I feel much more

positive about weathering this storm, both individually, and as part of

a top-notch team in KLH Emergency.”

Throughout the 9 weeks that in-school learning

was suspended, many schools and teachers

throughout the district found creative ways to

keep students feeling connected, despite the

physical distancing measures that kept them

away.

The Brent Kennedy 5/6 class, with the help

of their teacher Tamara Johnson and student

teacher Candice Mangione, devised an art project

called Together Apart where students were

asked to create unique rock art pieces to be

placed along the Slocan Valley Rail Trail behind

the school. The project began with the 5/6 classroom,

but quickly opened the invitation for the

entire school community to participate.

The Slocan Valley Rail Trail runs right outside

the elementary school and has served as an

outdoor classroom for many years. A beautiful

paved stretch of the trail runs from the South

Slocan Village to Frog Peak Café in Crescent

Valley. Students were instructed to bring their

finished art pieces at their convenience to this

Rural Teacher Education Program), Candice

wasn’t sure what her practicum was going to

look like this spring. Fortunately, placement

went ahead and student teachers around the

district were able to contribute to support the

at-home learning piece for students.

“Having to adapt to the conditions that the

pandemic created for education, I’ve learned

some valuable new skills and new delivery

methods that I believe I’ll be able to use as a

teacher in the future!”

2020 Difference

Maker of the Year

Awards

PHOTO: Teacher Chris Mieske with Trafalgar student

Todd St. Pierre

The Rick Hansen Foundation actively

raises awareness about disability and accessibility

in schools and communities across

Canada through a variety of education and

community outreach programs. One such

program is the Difference Maker awards,

an impact program that recognizes those

individuals who are making a positive difference

in the lives of others within their

school or community.

Creston student Alexis Folk

has been recognized as a 2020

Student Difference Maker of

the Year. Through her leadership

and perseverance,

Alexis has made a tremendous

difference in the lives of

students who participated in

the Kootenay Project Adventure

Program this year. The

program was initially created

to bring students together

with vision loss, however

Alexis had the vision to open

it up to students with various

disabilities.

Alexis’ involvement

included helping to pursue

and secure funding to

ensure more students could

be included in a dog-sledding

day in Salmo. Alexis is

a highly motivated student

who has her heart set on pursuing

a career in a medical

field. She is not only a serious

student, but a budding

advocate for inclusion and

accessibility. Congratulations

Alexis!

The 2020 Educator Difference

Maker of the Year has

been awarded to Chris Mieske, a much

admired grade 6 teacher at Trafalgar Middle

School in Nelson. The Educator category

recognizes champions and heroes who

make a positive difference toward inclusion

within their community. Chris embraces a

guiding principle in his classroom, “leave

no one behind” which creates an environment

that embraces inclusion, tolerance,

and diversity.

This year his class included a student

born with a rare neurological condition

that affects mobility. Chris saw the opportunity

to guide his grade six group through

an experiential design challenge to build a

personalized sled for the student, to ensure

that the entire class could participate in the

school’s winter activity days. The project

beautifully weaved together math, science,

engineering, art, English and physical education

and relied on the assistance of District

specialists to help support the class in

understanding this student’s physical and

social needs.

Both Alexis and Chris will be included

in the official announcement this week

(National AccessAbility Awareness Week -

May 31 - June 6) by the Rick Hansen Foundation.

They will also receive a signed letter

from Rick Hansen, a Difference Maker certificate,

and a $100.00 Indigo gift card.

Congratulations to both Alexis and

Chris. We are so proud of you!

Trail Parks & Recreation

is gearing up for Summer

Camp 2020. We have some

great activities planned, but

the program will look a little

different than previous

years. Everyone’s safety is

our top priority; therefore,

we have established some guidelines to

ensure the highest level of COVID-19 preventative

measures are in place.

All the details are outlined in the Summer

Camp Participants Guidelines & Information

2020 Newsletter, (www.trail.ca/

TrailParksRecSummerCamp2020NewsletterforParents.pdf.)

We encourage all

parents and guardians to read this document

before registering their child in the

program.

Registration opens Tuesday, June 16

at 8:30am. To register, please call 250-

364-0888 between the hours of 8:30am

4:00pm, Monday to Friday. Registrants will

be provided the required forms that must

be filled out and returned to Trail Parks &

Recreation at least one week prior to the

camp’s start date. Please note that enrollment

is limited as a low child to leader ratio

is an important safety measure.

RDCK announces

outdoor programming

for Castlegar and

Creston

The Regional District of Central Kootenay

(RDCK) Community Services is

excited to offer outdoor recreational programming

beginning next week in Castlegar

and Creston. Registration will be open

tomorrow, Wednesday June 10 at 10 am.

Our services in Castlegar and Creston

have facilities that include large parks and

outdoor open space, so we will be using

these two facilities as test sites for outdoor

fitness programming. To start there

will only be a few offerings (Cardio and

Strength Combo and Yoga) with limited

class sizes so that our staff and participants

are safe. These classes are on display now

online and registration opens tomorrow at

10 am. Registration will be done online or

ARE YOU OPEN OR

RE-OPENING

FOR

RETURNING

over the phone. Phone registration hours

are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

from 10 am to 2 pm. Call Castlegar at 250

365-3386 or Creston at 250 428 7127

“Our group has been working hard to

come up with alternatives to using indoor

facilities,” said Joe Chirico, general manager

of Community Services. “We hope this

is just the first of many outdoor programs

we will be able to offer this summer across

the RDCK. Depending on the demand and

ability to hold c lasses, the goal is to expand

the program and get peo! ple moving.”

The RDCK announced last week (June

2) that indoor recreation facilities will not

be opened until August 18, 2020 at the

earliest. Based upon information from BC

Public Health, regular operations of our

facilities and programs is just not possible

in the foreseeable future.

Our indoor pools, fitness centres, meeting

rooms and arenas remain closed to the

public. RDCK Membership Pass holders

purchased their memberships expecting

to be able to participate in fitness, swimming,

arena and other healthy activities at

their convenience. When the RDCK begins

to bring indoor opportunities back, the

RDCK will not be able to meet the same

level of service for time based membership

pass holders.

a. On June 2, the RDCK announced

that all time based memberships are cancelled,

backdated to March 17, 2020.

b. You can use your account credit

to pay for summer fitness and recreation

programming or leave the credit on your

account so you can purchase new memberships

when our facilities re-open.

c. You can also request a refund (3-4

weeks to process) by emailing your recreation

facility.

iv. Salmo & District Recreation salmorec@rdck.bc.ca

The RDCK understands the impact of

not having regular indoor recreation programming

available; however, the goal

is to create programming that brings the

indoors, outdoors. This, above all, will keep

our community safe and protect the most

vulnerable by helping to keep the curve flat.

We look forward to announcing more

recreation programming in the coming

weeks and appreciate the patience of all

our users as we implement new expanded

service with COVID-19 policies and procedures

in place.

Recreation and park services are

reviewed regularly as new information and

protocols become available.

Scientists need

Canadians to share

wildlife observations

With COVID-19 social distancing

measures impacting scientific surveys

and field research, the Canadian Wildlife

Federation (CWF) is asking Canadians

to help them collect critical data on the

impacts of isolation on the environment.

“We are counting on Canadians now

more than ever to share their nature

photos and record their wildlife observations

on iNaturalist.ca,” said James

Pagé, CWF species at risk and biodiversity

specialist. “This information is critical

to understand some of the impacts

of the quarantine on the wildlife. It’s also

an opportunity to showcase how much

nature matters to Canadians.”

CWF launched its Observations From

Isolation project on iNaturalist.ca in

April, generating more than 23,000 submissions

the first wave of the pandemic.

With Canadian Environment Day being

celebrated June 5th, followed by Rivers

to Oceans Week, the immediate goal is

to achieve 50,000 observations by Canada

Day. The long-term goal is to inspire

conservation through the new CWF

Observation Nation project.

“Canadians of all ages and abilities can

help by posting photos or sound recordings

of any wild plants or animals. The

automatic identification feature can help

you figure out what species you’ve seen,

and scientists can help verify observations

virtually,” Pagé said. “This is especially

important in 2020 since some

research teams may have to limit their

travel and rely more the public data.”

The iNaturalist app and website are

free and easy to use whether observing

nature safely in your backyard, local

park or further afield. Overall, there are

2.4 million observations of 23,000 species

in the Canadian database, which

was created in 2015. CWF thanks all

Canadians who have contributed to the

project to date.

are key to a successful recovery. CASTLEGAR—It’s a humble

Selkirk College department of two that has proven itself

mighty in the face of the daunting COVID-19 pandemic.

Health & Safety Advisors Donna Drover and Sophie

Connelly have been burning the candle at both ends over

the last three months, first responding to the crisis and

now preparing for the recovery. At its peak, Selkirk College

employs more than 450 people and serves almost 3,000 students

on campus locations across the West Kootenay and

Boundary region. Though vital during more normal times,

the Health & Safety Department has been thrust into the

spotlight due to COVID-19 challenge.

Both the Silver King Campus in Nelson and the Castlegar

Campus have started to welcome back learners in a limited

capacity for in-person delivery of required hands-on

trades training and health care labs. As the Selkirk College

Education Division works through its planning of delivery

models that include in-person where feasible and online

where required, the Health & Safety Department is critical

to success.

“We are being very methodical and responding appropriately

by looking at the post-secondary sector, taking advice

from WorkSafeBC, the Provincial Health Officer and the

BC Centre for Disease Control,” Drover says. “We have all

of these resources that we are looking at daily to help guide

us in our work, so it’s important to be a reassuring voice

because there are so many questions. We have to calmly

educate people and be open to questions, while also being

aware that everybody is

going to feel different about

CVC CERTIFIED

this situation.”

When Selkirk College

adjourned in-person delivery

of classes in mid-March, students

in all programs had to

deal with significant uncertainty

and anxiety. Drover’s

18-year-old son Matthew is

a Youth Train in Trades student

in the Electrical Foundation

Program on the Silver

King Campus, so the lens of

learners is sitting across from

her at the dinner table.

“We all feel very differently about COVID, there are people

who are very comfortable with it and there are people

who feel a lot of anxiety,” Drover says. “My son feels more

anxiety and that helps me understand that everything we

create must support the people who are not comfortable

to be back.”

The planning and procedures implemented at Selkirk

College are in strict adherence to public health and safety

guidelines. Drover has taken the same tact to educating and

reassuring her son about the college’s approach as she does

with everyone else who has questions.

Moving Forward with Caution

Back in mid-March, Drover and Connelly were focused

on employee health and safety with respect to the massive

migration from campus offices to home offices. Ensuring

proper ergonomics and functioning in new locations was

a crucial piece to the continuation of service in all college

departments.

Now charged with drafting plans and procedures that

will enable the execution of safe in-person return of students

and staff, the supply of materials such as sanitizer and

masks remains one of the most pressing challenges.

Beyond what is required on paper in terms of planning

and supplies is the greatest unknown. What the Health &

Safety Department can’t control is human reaction to the

new normal.

“The behavioural aspect is a concern,” says Drover. “We

can put all the best protocols in place, but if people are not

complying then it’s not worth the piece of paper it is written

on. This is where the relationship-building comes into

play, it’s important to educate people and for them to not be

afraid of health and safety when we come walking through

with our high-vis jackets. We don’t want people to be fearful

of us, we really want to be a resource where people come

to when problems arise.”

“There is a desire from everybody at Selkirk College to

make the best of this situation to ensure success for the students.

When that happens, it makes our jobs much easier,”

says Drover.

Mungall’s community

office restarts

in-person services

You can now once again meet with MLA

Michelle Mungall and her staff in person about

provincial government issues. Following public

health guidelines and recommendations from

WorkSafeBC, MLA Mungall’s Nelson community

office at 433 Josephine Street is now open

for in-person meetings by appointment. To

make an appointment, please contact the office

by phone or email in advance.

the pandemic via phone and email, but I am

pleased we are able to once again provide safe

in-person service to the public at my Nelson

office,” said MLA Mungall. “If you have a provincial

government issue you wish to discuss in

person, please make an appointment.“

Since the beginning of the pandemic, MLA

Mungall has had over 100 virtual meetings

with small business stakeholders, chambers of

commerce, local governments, and local Nelson-Creston

organizations and individuals. In

her role as Minister of Jobs, Economic Development

and Competitiveness, and as a member of

the Province’s Economic Recovery Task Force,

she has been working hard to help plan BC’s

economic recovery from COVID-19.

This spring, MLA Mungall’s office’s normally

scheduled mobile offices that provide in-person

services to Creston, Kaslo and Salmo have been

cancelled due to public health recommendations

against non-essential travel. To ensure

One quick turn...

and it’s all over for this dog!

Dogs are easily

jolted out of

open pick-ups and

often suffer crippling

injuries or death.

let your best friend ride safely

in the cab.

“Our group has been working hard to come

up with alternatives to using indoor facilities,”

said Joe Chirico, general manager of Community

Services. “We hope this is just the first of many

outdoor programs we will be able to offer this

summer across the RDCK. Depending on the

demand and ability to hold c lasses, the goal is

to expand the program and get peo! ple moving.”

The RDCK announced last week (June 2) that

indoor recreation facilities will not be opened

until August 18, 2020 at the earliest. Based upon

information from BC Public Health, regular

operations of our facilities and programs is just

not possible in the foreseeable future.

Our indoor pools, fitness centres, meeting

rooms and arenas remain closed to the public.

memberships expecting to be able to participate

however, the goal is to create programming

that brings the indoors, outdoors. This, above all,

will keep our community safe and protect the

We look forward to announcing more recreation

Serving the West Kootenay for over 80 years.

FrancoFête 2020

will take place in your home, in

nature, on the Internet and on the

radio with a concert by Shauit.

Nelson, June 11th, 2020

The Association des francophones

des Kootenays Ouest (AFKO) has

once again decided to play the card of

originality to celebrate its FrancoFête

2020. It therefore invites the community

of the West Kootenay to celebrate

the cultural diversity of the French

speaking world with activities where

everyone can participate in their own

way, according to their wishes and

means, without necessarily being

connected to the Internet.

The AFKO’s mission is to promote

the French language and its cultures

across its region.

Founded in 1986, the association

offers numerous opportunities for

francophones and francophiles who

wish to appreciate French-Canadian

traditions. It also seeks to highlight

the diversity of the French-speaking

community shaped by Canada and

the world. AFKO is proud to share

this diversity of culture through its

socio-cultural, community and educational

activities.

Flashback : when Saint-Jean-Baptiste

became FrancoFête.

In 2019, the great diversity of

French speakers in the West Kootenay

encouraged the association to

renew itself and be more inclusive.

The Saint-Jean-Baptiste event then

took the name of FrancoFête where

each French speaking participant

could identify with a proposed activity

whether being from Canada or

elsewhere in the world. French Canadian

culture remains, of course, in the

spotlight.

The first FrancoFête brought

together 250 people in the pouring

rain at Lakeside Park in Nelson.

Young and old had fun with family

and friends thanks to some sports

(pétanque and pocket games ), food

(poutine competition), music (traditional

and modern music, covers

and original songs), and stilt walkers.

Laura Vaché from France, who

has been living in Nelson for 2 years,

explains to us why she loves the FrancoFête:

“I discovered French Canadian

culture through music but in

addition, I also had the opportunity

to explain pétanque to an English

speaking friend who accompanied

me. It was perfect!”.

A Quebecer tells us that she appreciates

the effort of inclusion: “I think

that when people saw Fête de la Saint-

Jean-Baptiste, they may have thought

that it was reserved exclusively for

French Canadians, and more particularly

Quebecers because it is our

national holiday. But finally, the more

we are, the better it is to party! With

the name FrancoFête, everyone feels

welcome and that does not prevent

Quebecers singing popular songs

from Quebec and thinking about

Saint-Jean-Baptiste! “.

In 2020, the FrancoFête is adapting

itself to the crisis “We don’t give up,

we adapt, we reinvent!” says Amélie

Sauquet, AFKO’s socio-cultural

coordinator. The 2020 edition of the

FrancoFête will therefore take place

at home, in nature, on Internet and

on the radio from Saturday, June

20th to Saturday, June 27th. Guests

will be able to take part in photo and

culinary challenges and they will be

asked to share their photos on social

networks. The bakeries Au Soleil

Levant (Nelson), Hooper (Rossland)

and La Baguette (Revelstoke) challenge

people to make their own bread

for the occasion.

Participants will also be invited to

take part in an online quiz but also to

Finally, the week of festivities will end with

live performance will be available online

and on the community radio Kootenay

Co-op Radio for the residents of Nelson,

“Shauit is the first Innu reggae artist. He is

from the Maliotenam reserve east of Sept-

Îles in northeastern Quebec, and Montreal.

His first language is French and he learned

the Innu language later on in life, because

he wanted to. At around 12 years old, when

he discovered the very popular Kashtin

group during the Innu Nikamu festival in

Maliotenam, he decided to get closer to

his native origins. His father bought him

a guitar and he learned the Innu language

to sing in his mother tongue and reconnect

with his people “ (source www.pasamusik.

The Association des francophones des

Kootenays Ouest is pleased and proud to

present this artist. Find information about

Trail summer camps 2020

Trail Parks & Recreation is gearing up for Summer

Camp 2020. We have some great activities

planned, but the program will look a little different

than previous years. Everyone’s safety is our

top priority; therefore, we have established some

guidelines to ensure the highest level of COVID-

19 preventative measures are in place.

All the details are outlined in the Summer

Camp Participants Guidelines & Information

2020 Newsletter, (www.trail.ca/en/play/

resources/Parks-and-Recreation/TrailParksRec-

SummerCamp2020NewsletterforParents.pdf.)

We encourage all parents and guardians to read

this document before registering their child in the

program.

Registration opens Tuesday, June 16 at 8:30am.

To register, please call 250-364-0888 between the

hours of 8:30am 4:00pm, Monday to Friday.

Registrants will be provided the required forms

that must be filled out and returned to Trail Parks

& Recreation at least one week prior to the camp’s

start date. Please note that enrollment is limited

as a low child to leader ratio is an important safety

measure.

JOHN (JACK) MALCOLM GREENLAW

Age 81, passed away peacefully on June 8th in

Penticton, BC, with his 3 children by his side.

The son of Malcolm and Mae Greenlaw, he was

born in Kaslo, BC, on November 17, 1938 and

grew up in the upper Lardeau valley, including

the original townsite of Howser and Lardeau, BC.

Jack and Dorothy built their dream home on the

shores of Kootenay Lake at Schroeder Creek and

lived there 25 years before moving to Penticton

in 2008. Jack was married to his wife Dorothy

for 57 years before her passing in 2016. Jack

leaves behind his son Ken & daughter-in-law

Kristen Greenlaw, daughter Kristine and son-inlaw

Shaun Chamberlain, 2 grandchildren, Ayden

and Savvy Chamberlain, son Kip Greenlaw and

daughter-in-law Theresa Smith, and brother

Larry. He was predeceased by his parents and

sister Margaret Gibb.

Jack’s first full-time job was working for

Kootenay Forest Products (KFP), when he was

15. By his late teens, he was running a bull

-dozer and building roads. Jack and Dorothy

formed their own road building company in 1970,

Dorjack Contracting Ltd., which they ran for

over 20 years. His upbringing shaped his family

living in Howser, BC with large garden, prized

raspberries, and a dedication to the support of

his family and the community.

Jack was an amazing father, grandfather,

companion, and friend. He loved fishing, golfing,

and wintering in the southern USA. Their

winter road trips always took them

through Nevada and the bright lights

of Las Vegas. His favourite pastime

was golfing with family and friends.

Over the years he amassed 3

hole-in-ones; his last

round was with Kip

on April 22nd.

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.

Seniors enjoy

sweet sounds

On June 4th, 2020 Kootenay

Seniors organized a small

event for the residents of

Kiwanis Villa to mark seniors’

week (June 1-8, 2020.) Two

young musicians played their

guitars and sang beautifully for

the residents. Seniors were able

to sit on their front porch and

enjoy the music at a safe distance.

Kootenay Seniors provided

masks, gloves, and hand

sanitizer to the seniors, and

maintained COVID 10 safety

protocols. It was a very enjoyable

afternoon.

The musician’s names were

Brooklyn Robertson and Cole

Senger. Brooklyn grew up in

Campbell River and was taught

to sing by her father. She mentioned

she has “been singing as

long as I can remember, and

never took lessons.” Cole grew

up in Armstrong and studied

Music Composition and Technology

at Selkirk College.

Kootenay Seniors wanted

to provide the seniors some

entertainment to lift their spirits.

The event was funded by

Columbia Basin Trust through

the Kootenay Seniors Intergenerational

project. The project

aims to reduce social isolation

of seniors in Nelson and

area. For more information

about the project as well as our

COVID 19 adapted programs,

Love is also

contagious!

Local medical staff

spreading positive

message

An emergency physician’s idea to spread

a positive message during stressful times is

catching on around the hospital, and now,

in the community.

Dr. Linda Johannson, who works in the

Emergency Department at Nelson’s Kootenay

Lake Hospital, noticed that the pandemic

was taking a toll on staff morale.

During those early weeks, she and her colleagues

were really feeling the pressure of

the changes to their daily practice and the

fear and uncertainty about what lay ahead.

Their team, which is normally friendly and

cooperative, was feeling the impact.

She attended one of the daily on-line sessions

being offered to support physicians,

where the facilitator mentioned that, when

someone at work displays an anxious,

fearful attitude, it can be contagious to

the whole team. But, she said, the reverse

is also true. Positive attitudes can also be

contagious, and it only takes one person to

make that shift and get things started.

That’s when the idea for the ‘Love is also

contagious’ campaign was born. Johannson

got to work, and asked the Facility Engagement

Working Group for support. The

Working Group is made up of members of

the KLH medical staff and funds projects

led by physicians and other health care providers

that improve the working environment

and patient care at KLH.

“I wanted to create a visual cue to remind

us that, because of the fear we are all

experiencing, our behaviour may not be

consistent with our usual happy, friendly

personalities. We can recognize the negative

effects of that state in each other and

in ourselves, offer forgiveness, take a pause,

and choose to start again in a loving way,

rather than simply reacting to the stress

that is going on.”

“I asked my good friend, Nelson graphic

designer Marian Lowe, if she could take a

cartoon coronavirus image I had found,

and morph it into a heart, for a more

friendly virus image than the scary ones all

over the news and our internal communication

memos.”

To help spread the visual reminder, Dr.

Johannson and the Facility Engagement

team had stickers and buttons made up,

along with a downloadable window sign

that anyone can print from home and

display anywhere. The image soon made

its way around the region and the province,

as other groups, including Interior Health,

the Kootenay Boundary Division of Family

Practice and Doctors of BC helped spread

the positive message.

“The ‘Love is also contagious’ message

is a simple and quick reminder of what

health care teams, community and society

can prioritize during this pandemic.

This mindset has helped disperse the fear

and anxiety we are feeling individually, to a

supportive, strengths-based mentality as a

community,” says Tanya Momtazian, midwife

and co-chair of the working group.

Along with the Doctors of BC, the medical

staff at KLH are reminding everyone

to continue to hold the line, and follow the

direction of the Provincial Health Officer

of British Columbia. As businesses begin

to open, it might also be helpful to remember

that individual attitudes can make a big

difference.

“I think the ‘Love is also contagious’

message is helpful for all of us to keep in

mind as we see some restrictions gradually

lifting. It serves as a reminder to be patient

and respectful of one another, recognizing

that navigating our way back to a “new normal”

can be challenging and unsettling,”

says working group member and family

physician Dr. Kevin McKechnie.

“Some of us may thrive with the lifting of

restrictions, while others of us may experience

increased anxiety and fear. We need to

continue providing support and help to our

family members, friends, neighbours, and

colleagues, recognizing that lots of restrictions

remain in place, and that significant

challenges still exist for many,” McKechnie

says.

Meanwhile, Dr. Johannson is continuing

to spread the message that ‘Love is also

contagious’ whenever she’s on shift in the

ER.
