CANNABIS CULTIVATORS:

NEVER say

“TRIMMING SUCKS” AGAIN!

You can now quickly and beautifully trim

dry buds with the revolutionary

Bladeless Cryogenic Tumbling

Trimming Machine

Injected CO 2

gas brings the trimming

chamber down to 10° F to almost freeze

the leaves, making them brittle enough

to break off when they roll over the cold

diamond mesh screen, but yet not cold

enough to disturb the trichomes.

TRIM 40 LBS AN HOUR

NO RESIN LOSS TO GLOVES & SCISSORS.

AS A BONUS, 100% of the TRIMMED

MATERIAL CAN BE COLLECTED for

concentrates like BUBBLE HASH!

SAVES 85% OF TRADITIONAL TRIMMING

TIME.

Learn all about it on YouTube by checking

out the “Original Resinator” XL model

CO 2

Trimming Machine.

Originally cost $12,000 CDN and I used it

for my last crop before I retired, I definitely

got great use out of it and now you can

purchase it from me for $8000 (firm) and

it should pay for itself after trimming its

first 55 lbs - (Saving 1.5 hrs of trimming at

the usual $150/lb to the hand trimmers.

$150 x 55 lbs = $8250)

It is also a GREAT KIEF MACHINE for

Critical Cold -65°F separation of trichome

glands from buds !!!!

It’s yours for $8,000 by emailing me at

Selkirk College

instructor drives

success through

creativity

An instructor in the Selkirk College Digital Arts Program,

Nichola Lytle is showing students what it takes to succeed

in an industry focused on creativity. Her latest project—

ThingsMyKidsDo.com—was inspired by her active family

life and took her deep into the recent New Ventures BC

competition.

Nichola Lytle teaches students in the

Selkirk College Digital Arts Program to set

no boundaries on creativity.

An instructor on Nelson’s Tenth Street

Campus for the last decade, Lytle is the owner

of a successful design company and currently

leading a tech start-up geared towards

bringing a range of full experiences to young

families. ThingsMyKidsDo.com is a web

application designed to connect parents with

community activities through aggregation

and customization that ensures smiling faces

all around.

“I am a pretty busy parent and I’m constantly

missing out on activities for the kids,”

says the mom of eight and ten-year-old sons.

“There are so many amazing activities going

on in our community, but I’ve always found

it hard to keep track of them. I wished that

somebody could just notify me what’s happening.

Knowing that they were missing out,

my sons suggested I build an app for it, so I

did.”

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.

If interested, please contact Len Hewat

Email: leonard.hewat@mercerint.com • Phone: 250-608-3513

Working with a team of students and

recent graduates at post-secondary institutions

across the province, Lytle has taken her

idea from concept to reality. Excitement and

traction for ThingsMyKidsDo.com continues

to build with her website recently being

included in the New Ventures BC competition

that awards tech start-ups with support

and funding.

Lytle and her team have simplified access

to activities for kids. Parents share their

kid’s interests, vendors share their activities/

events, playlists are created, calendars are put

in place and the fun never stops.

“There is a strong component of building

community,” she says. “When you build a

stronger connection between families, activities

and the local organizations that provide

them, everyone wins.”

Taking risks and finding rewards

Lytle is originally from Toronto and

attended Queen’s University where she graduated

with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours

Degree with a focus on painting and illustration.

Shortly after graduation she moved

west, drawn to Nelson by the vibrant creative

culture and access to world-class mountain

recreation.

Like many who carve out a life in the West

Kootenay, when Lytle arrived in 1999 she had

to figure out a way to pay the bills. She started

designing posters for local businesses and

then branched off into the world of graphic

design in a time when the melding of artistry

and technology was still in its infancy. With

no formal post-secondary training using

computers as a canvas, Lytle self-taught her

way through and found success.

“You need to walk into a visual problem

believing that you will find the answer,” Lytle

says of her academic-based approach to taking

on challenges. “It takes creativity and

experimentation to get to the final result, but

fundamentally the process relies on practicing

courage. To get results, you have to keep

stepping out of your comfort zone.”

In 2000, Lytle started Pink Dog Designs

and over the past 20 years

her graphic design and

illustration skills have

helped more than 500 businesses

and organizations.

Her wonderfully brilliant

and playful design style

can be found in children’s

books, murals at the BC

Children’s Hospital, vehicle

wraps, logos, websites and

print advertisements.

Showing the way for

learners

Lytle arrived to the classrooms

of Nelson’s Tenth

Street Campus in 2010

when she took a temporary job as an instructor

in the Digital Arts Program. Since that

time, she has mentored students by helping

them develop both the skills and the ability to

take their talents into the workforce.

Maintaining the tricky balance of teaching,

running a successful company and parenting

is not easy. Like her instructor colleagues

in all Selkirk College programs, Lytle packs

current real-world experience into the classrooms

and lab spaces every semester.

“I’m driven by my own curiosity and a

passion for learning,” says the 47-year-old.

“There is so much to learn by taking new

risks and trying something new. You don’t

know what is around that next corner until

you take the next step. This is something that

I talk a lot about with my students. When you

broaden the scope of experience, it becomes

like second nature to try something new

and learn new skills. It’s part of all industries

today, constant learning and adapting.”

Proof of Lytle’s confidence in the next

generation is found with the ThingsMy-

KidsDo.com web application project. To get

to this point, she has partnered with a team

of post-secondary students at the British

Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT),

University of British Columbia’s Sauder

School of Business and Selkirk College. Students

and fresh graduates have helped with

backend development, market research and

strategic marketing.

“Students have such great ideas and they

are willing to take risks,” she says. “They

also have the most up to date skillset when

it comes to technology and trends, it’s a valuable

resource.”

ThingsMyKidsDo.com made it to third

round of the New Ventures BC competition

that started with 280 submitted proposals.

Though her final pitch amongst 25 start-ups

did not get her through to the final round, she

was stoked that her team made it that far.

“It was an awesome learning opportunity

to practice pitching in front of CEOs who

have been there themselves,” says Lytle. “I still

have a lot to learn though, like don’t tell them

you’re in the middle of a camping trip. In the

Kootenays, that means you’ve been working

hard and earned your play time! ThingsMy-

KidsDo.com will hopefully make it easier for

other parents to balance how their families

work and play, to find meaningful learning

opportunities for their kids, and enjoy new

experiences—wherever they are, wherever

they want to go.”

Changes to hunting

regs mention E-bikes

for the first time

Wildlife in BC have a better chance to survive

thanks to changes to this year’s hunting

and trapping regulations. But more still needs

to be done to protect vulnerable wildlife from

mounting pressures.

The Province of BC recently announced

the updated 2020 hunting and trapping regulations,

which includes a ban on wolverine

trapping, restrictions to motor vehicles and

e-bikes, and an end to the harmful feeding of

ungulates.

“The regulations are a step in the right

direction towards helping to rebuild wildlife

populations,” says Eddie Petryshen, Wildsight

Conservation Specialist.

The provincial government asked for citizen

engagement on the regulatory changes,

and the public spoke up loud and clear, leading

to positive changes for wildlife.

For example, wolverine trapping is now

banned within the Kootenay and Columbia

regions. Wolverine populations have declined

because of habitat loss, human pressure, and

trapping. By instituting this change, the province

is giving wolverines a fighting chance to

rebuild.

Wolverines weren’t the only animals given

better protections. Antlerless elk (female

and young elk) can’t be hunted anymore, in

hopes of bolstering elk populations across the

Kootenays.

Another problem area has been people

feeding or baiting ungulates including

moose, goats, deer, sheep, and elk. This practice

increases the threat of disease transmission

(such as Chronic Wasting Disease which

is now present in both Montana and Alberta)

and can wreak havoc with animal’s digestive

systems, sometimes causing severe sickness

or even death. The province has now banned

this destructive practice.

Showing a sign of the times, electric bikes

have made it onto the provincial hunting

guide for the first time this year. While trucks,

quads and dirtbikes were banned from specific

areas, e-bikes did not have the same

restrictions until now.

“E-bikes allow people to cover a lot more

ground and travel further into the mountains,

disturbing and displacing wildlife and making

wildlife more vulnerable,” says Petryshen.

“E-bikes can be a great way to get around, but

they have no place in areas that are closed to

other motorized vehicles.”

Speaking of motorized vehicles, more

motor vehicle restrictions were also put in

place this year 21 in the Kootenays alone.

“These proposed vehicle restricted areas

protect important habitats for sensitive species

that can’t handle the ever-increasing

cont’d on pg 6

Meryl McMaster at

Touchstone

A single subject, dressed in ornate

costumes or wielding intricate, handmade

props, stands alone in a vast,

empty landscape. It feels dreamlike,

otherworldly, magical. From the shores

of Newfoundland to the Saskatchewan

prairies and between, Canadian artist

Meryl McMaster seeks out these desolate

places and poses her lone model for

her photography series As Immense as

Gyro Park

playground

under construction

Contractors are onsite at Gyro Park

to remove the existing playground

structure and to prepare the area for

new equipment that will be installed

throughout September and October.

To accommodate this work, the playground

area will remain closed for the

duration of the construction and the

spray park will remain closed for the

remainder of the season. We ask that all

Gyro Park-goers take caution when in

the area and to obey the posted signage.

The city appreciates everyone’s patience

and cooperation as we work through

the project.

About the Gyro Park Playground

Project

The current playground equipment

at Gyro Park was installed in the early

2000s and has reached the end of its

useful life.

In October 2019, the city submitted

a grant proposal to Columbia Basin

Trust (CBT) Basin Plays program for

$25,000 to go towards the project. The

fund supports projects that improve

the Sky, which is being shown this fall

at Touchstones Nelson Museum.

The exhibition runs September 26 to

February 28, 2021 in Gallery A, with

an opening reception Friday, September

25 from 7 to 9 pm. Along with the

oversized photos, McMaster has also

written poems

to coordinate

with each image.

McMaster,

who has both

European and

Plains Cree

ancestry, uses

her work to

explore the two

worlds in which

she lives. She

develops a relationship

with

the land and

the past, and

uses her models,

props, costumes

and makeup to

tell a story of her

exploration.

“Many places I

visited hold particular

meaning for my direct ancestors

as they are sites of significant moments

in their lives,” McMaster says in her

artist statement. “I was drawn to the

facilities and equipment that increase

participation by children and youth

in physical activity and sport and that

reduce barriers to participation and

promote inclusivity and accessibility.

The city received $22,500 in January

2020. The balance of $2,500 will be

received once the final report is submitted

to CBT.

sites of ancient stories across central

and southern Saskatchewan and to the

shores of early settlement in Ontario

and Newfoundland. My aim was to

reconnect with those who came before

me as a way of introducing myself to

the land on which they lived.”

Meryl McMaster was born in

Ottawa, Ontario in 1988. She earned

a BFA in Photography from OCAD

University in Toronto, Canada (2010).

Her work has been exhibited at the

National Gallery of Canada, Art Gallery

of Ontario, Montreal Museum of

Fine Arts, the Smithsonian’s National

Museum of American Indian, and

more. Her awards include the Scotiabank

New Generation Photography

Award (2018), REVEAL Indigenous

Art Award (2017), Eiteljorg Contemporary

Art Fellow Award (2013), Charles

Pachter Prize for Emerging Artists

(2012), Canon Canada Prize (2010),

OCAD U Medal (2010) and the 2016

Sobey Art Award long list.

For more information on this

exhibition and additional programs

and events, please visit www.touchstonesnelson.ca.

Song’, 2019.

In May 2020, Council approved to

enter an agreement with Habitat Systems

Incorporated, a company that

specializes in the creation of outdoor

spaces, for the installation of new playground

equipment and ground surfacing

for the Gyro Park Playground for a

total of $371,258 plus taxes.

Changes to Hunting Regs

cont’d from pg 4

“These proposed vehicle restricted areas

protect important habitats for sensitive species

that can’t handle the ever-increasing

backcountry traffic, especially in combination

with logging, mining, recreation, and

hunting pressure,” remarks Petryshen.

Unfortunately, not everything in the 2020

guide is rosy for wildlife. One of the major

issues the province did not move forward

on was a revised start date for marten trapping.

In recent years, grizzly bears have been

severely injured while trying to remove the

bait from small box traps used to trap marten.

If the government had pushed the start

date for marten trapping until after bears are

in hibernation, it could have saved needless

injuries to bears. The BC government and

trappers are working together to modify

traps that could reduce the likelihood of grizzly

bears being injured. It remains to be seen

whether this will be an effective measure to

reduce injuries.

Hunting and trapping regulations are only

one tool in the toolkit to manage for wildlife

and ecosystem health. We need standalone

legislation that puts wildlife and ecosystem

health in the forefront when making decisions

on forestry, mining, agriculture, and

recreation.

Until that happens, Wildsight will continue

to push for protection of our vulnerable wildlife

in a province with increasing pressures

from human encroachment and industrial

development taking precedence over wildlife

in BC.

Tyler Rice

Volunteer of the Year

Community Futures Central Kootenay

(CFCK) is pleased to recognize Tyler Rice as

Volunteer of the Year. Since joining the CFCK

Board of Directors in 2018, Tyler Rice quickly

expanded his involvement in the non-profit,

chairing the CFCK Self Employment and

Cannabis Business Transition Initiative Committee,

and assuming the role of treasurer for

the West Kootenay Boundary Community

Investment Coop.

“Tyler’s always keen, volunteering his time,

energy, and expertise to help move projects

forward.” said Andrea Wilkey, Executive

Director of CFCK, “When COVID-19 hit,

he shared his expertise as an accountant

and entrepreneur on our weekly business

roundtable.”

When asked about his time volunteering:

“At CFCK, I’ve had several opportunities to

get involved with projects in the idea phase,”

said Tyler Rice. “It’s very rewarding to see

them develop into programs and services that

support the business community.”

Tyler Rice and his family moved to the

Kootenay region in 2014 to launch a mining

venture near Salmo. Prior to this, his time

in Calgary included work with oil and gas,

healthcare, and real estate. Tyler Rice is also

founding partner of Rice&Co, an accounting

firm that serves businesses in Alberta and

British Columbia.

“Tyler shows true commitment to the

work that Community Futures does,” said

Chris Bell, Chair of the CFCK Board of

Directors. “Whether he’s supporting the Self

Employment program or getting involved in

new programs such as the West Kootenay

Boundary Community Investment Co-op

and the Cannabis Business Transition

Initiative.”

Legalization of recreational cannabis in

Canada introduced a complex licensing

process. The Cannabis Business Transition

Initiative (CBTI) was created to help

local entrepreneurs navigate the regulatory

system and create sustainable cannabis

businesses.

“Early on, we identified the need for a

local cannabis processing cooperative. Tyler

has been key in laying the groundwork for

this project.” said Paul Kelly, CBTI Program

Manager. “Developing this cooperative

improves the viability of cannabis business

in the region.”

In addition to his volunteer work with

CFCK, Tyler Rice also volunteers as assistant

coach for Nelson Minor Hockey; coach for

the Nelson Soccer Association; firefighter for

the North Shore Fire Department; volunteer

board member of the Chamber of Mines of

Eastern BC; and treasurer of the Redfish Elementary

School Parent Advisory Committee.

Wood Carving Symposium

this September!

Rossland’s first Wood Carving Symposium is September

11-13. This unique event brings three local artists to downtown

Rossland where three new wooden sculptures will be

created for Centennial Trail. The sculptures will be carved live

so the community has the opportunity to witness the process

of making from concept through to fruition. The artists will be

working openly, in the parking lot next to the Cold Beer and

Wine Store at the corner of Columbia Avenue and Spokane

Street from 10am to 4pm daily.

Our artists are Columbia Basin Artists: Lars Baggenstos

(Rossland), Mike Williams (Rossland/Patterson), and Michael

Penny (Fernie)! They will each carve a sculpture with the

theme of “Encounters in the Woods”.

Originally dreamed to have Indigenous, provincial and international

artists participating alongside local Columbia Basin

artists in a live sculpture carving event with presentations and

other activities that share some of the history of carving and

its influence on cultures around the world. Due to covid-19

and this unprecedented year the RCAC is keeping our first

sculpture symposium safe and small. We are extremely lucky

to have amazing local sculptors participating.

This project seeks to connect recreation, art, nature, and culture

by showing the development of a sculpture from concept

to completion and displaying the completed sculptures in a

natural, non-traditional, and unexpected environment.

We recognize that a public art piece that is professional, of

high artistic merit, and a subject that people can identify with,

creates an appreciation and legacy for the arts by the general

public. The presence of public art demonstrates to visitors and

residents that Rossland is not just an active sporting community

but also a dynamic arts & culture community that makes

art accessible.

The community will be able to watch the creative and technical

processes of the artists. After the event, the sculptures

will be placed on Centennial Trail for trail users to enjoy

year-round.

Special thanks to BC Arts Council, pfeil Swiss Made Carving

Tools, the City of Rossland, the Rams Head Inn and Sourdough

Holdings Ltd. for your support in making this project

happen!

Safety precautions:

We ask that when you stop-by to watch the carving that you

maintain social distancing, wear a mask if that is your preference,

and to help our volunteers keep the gatherings under 40

people. If you see a group watching the carving, please come

back later!

In this time of reopening after COVID-19 we are working

very hard to create a safe event for the community. For full

Nelson Women’s Centre

hires new

executive director

The Nelson & District Women’s Centre is pleased to welcome

Andrea Carter as its new executive director. “We’re

thrilled to have Andrea join us, with her experience in community

work and her education in non-profit management,”

says Yvette Janzen, chair of the board of directors. “She has the

perfect blend of skills, as well as clear feminist values.”

Carter has a bachelor’s degree in non-profit management

and is certified as a Public Participation Professional. Over the

past 13 years, she’s moved from front-line work to leadership

roles, and has participated in several government advisory

bodies, representing under-served and traditionally marginalized

communities.

Carter’s most recent position has been as the director of

programs at HIV Community Link, providing support and

advocacy services to communities across southern Alberta.

Through her work, Carter has demonstrated commitment to

building organizations and communities that are collaborative,

empowered, informed and adaptive.

Born in Nelson, Carter is excited to be returning to the area.

She enjoys reading, music, exploring the outdoors, and training

her “exceptionally smart and equally stubborn” canine

pal.“I’m so pleased by the opportunity to work closely with the

community in a leadership role at the Women’s Centre,” Carter

says. “My goals and motivation are to set a clear and bold

vision for the future of the Women’s Centre by involving all

members and partners in co-creating our future.”

Janzen says Carter has been working remotely through

August and will be on-site at the Centre on September 8.

“Andrea’s first weeks with the Women’s Centre will involve hiring

key staff for the drop-in and volunteer coordinator roles

and planning for a safe re-opening of the Centre.”

Follow the Centre’s website (www.nelsonwomenscentre.

com), Janzen says, for news of upcoming activities and events.

Kerry Reed’s Fishing Report

Most of our trips have been half day trips, as the weather

has been too hot to spend the whole day out. Fishing has been

pretty good considering. Our last group had a good morning

trip with a bunch of rainbows and bull trout to the boat. Mornings

and evenings have been the best.

What are they biting on? On the lake it’s been a mix of croc

spoons on the surface, or flasher/hoochie down 100ft.

That’s the short and sweet report. I’ve got to get back on the

New Trail emergency

department opens

People who live in the Kootenay Boundary region can now

access an updated emergency department (ED) at the Kootenay

Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) in Trail.

“I am pleased to see this portion of renovations at KBRH

open to patients. The emergency department and electrical

redevelopment project significantly expands the KBRH ED

nearly tripling its size addressing space challenges at the

hospital to allow health-care workers the space they need to

help patients,” said Adrian Dix, minister of health. “The Kootenay

Boundary Regional Hospital plays a central role in the

health and well-being of residents living in West Kootenay

Boundary, and now they have access the enhanced emergency

care they need, when they need it.”

The new ED features a technologically advanced trauma

room, private patient exam rooms, new procedure rooms and

plenty of natural lighting, specialized spaces to treat infectious

diseases and to provide support for mental health patients

and their families. The project also includes a new separate

entrance for patients to access the ED.

“The completion of the new emergency department at Kootenay

Boundary Regional Hospital is incredibly important to

the people of the region including the communities of Trail,

Rossland and Castlegar. This is wonderful news for my constituents

as they will be well served with improved care spaces

in a larger and modern emergency department,” said Katrine

Conroy, MLA for Kootenay West.

To fund this project Interior Health committed $10.83 million,

the West Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital District

provided $7.22 million and the KBRH Health Foundation

aised $1million for a total of $19.05 million.

“Congratulations to the community and

everyone involved in this project. Patients

will find a comfortable and upgraded emergency

department with natural light, bigger

spaces and more privacy. Staff and physicians

will have the ability to provide care to

patients in a modern setting, ensuring they

are receiving the best care possible. We are

thrilled to see this new space available for

patients,” said Doug Cochrane, Interior

Health board chair.

KBRH is a regional facility, responding to

the needs of 80,000 residents in the Kootenay

Boundary, offering specialized services,

core medical services and advanced medical

imaging services. The KBRH ED sees over

16,000 patients each year.

“With KBRH being a regional hospital, this

project was a top priority for our board. This

new emergency department will allow for

enhanced care during a time when patients

most need it. With a focus on the safety and

comfort of patients, their families and staff,

the ongoing redevelopment of KBRH is very

important to the residents of Trail and the

entire area,” said Suzan Hewat, chair of the

West Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital

District.

The KBRH Health Foundation ran a

$1-million Emergency Department Campaign

to help with the purchase of additional

equipment for the KBRH ED and Electrical

Project.

“Raising $1million over the past two years

is a significant accomplishment and we want

to thank all of our donors for their extraordinary

level of support,” said Lisa Pasin, director

of development for the KBRH Health

Foundation. “We are excited that the new

emergency department is complete. These

contributions from the community will

ensure the ED is equipped to meet the needs

of our patients and medical staff.”

Work on the project continues as IH is

creating space for mental health services

and families by renovating the original ED

which is anticipated to be complete in early

2021. The project is part of an ongoing redevelopment

of KBRH which also includes a

$38.8-million project to build a new ambulatory

care wing and pharmacy.

PEARSON, Roderick Murray (Mur)

Mur passed away on August 19, 2020

at the age of 63 years while fly fishing at

one of his favourite places, Fry Creek near

Kootenay Lake. He was born on September

17, 1956 in Flin Flon, Manitoba.

He was pre-deceased by his parents Elsie

in 2008 and Frank in 2018. He is survived

by his two siblings Jim and Nona and their

families: Jim (Donna De Fraine) Pearson

with son Ryan, and daughters MaryEllen

(Andrew) Machuk with Mitchell and twins

Heidi and Dominic, Melissa Pearson (Jon

Ng) with Violet and Nathan, and Paula

(Joe) Watkins with twins Philip and Pearson,

and Nona (Doug) Flemming with Carly

and Julie.

He graduated from Grade 12 at Hapnot

Collegiate before moving to Toronto with

his parents in 1974 and starting to look for

his purpose in life. He spent time in Ottawa,

Cominco in Trail, T&H Sawmill and the

golf course in Kaslo, University of Victoria

and a golf course in Victoria, and Pitt River

near Vancouver. He was not a big city

person and he finally found his sweet spot

outdoors with a 31 year career as the Custodian

for the Meadow Creek spawning

channel north of Kootenay Lake. Internationally,

with his fluent Spanish he spent

months of some winters playing baseball

and teaching English in Costa Rica and

Panama. He also worked construction in

the Kaslo area for a number of winters.

Mur was devoted to sports as an athlete

and coach for most of his life. He played

on some Flin Flon league champion hockey

teams when he was quite young and

he wished he had been named Brooks after

his baseball idol, Brooks Robinson of

the Baltimore Orioles. He was an extreme

participant in baseball and hockey in Kaslo

and also really enjoyed fly fishing. During

the trip to Panama, he knocked on Chico

Salmon’s door to talk about Chico’s career

as an Oriole during their World Series

years.

His family knew he had many friends in

Kaslo but the expressions of appreciation

for his character and his participation in

the Kaslo community have been overwhelming.

Naming the Murray Pearson

Ball Park is an honour to his memory and

an honour for his family. He did his part

for the environment by not owning a car

for probably 40 years and although he

had a casual awareness of technology, he

never owned a phone or computer. He

was always available for his friends and

we would especially like to thank Lorna,

Maggie, John, Karma and Glen for all their

help at this time.

Friends and relatives are invited to a Celebration

of Life to be held for Murray in

Kaslo on Saturday, September 26, 2020.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions limiting

groups to 50 people, the actual ceremony

is planned to be held at the Murray Pearson

Ball Park and it will be live-streamed

to the internet and to other venues in Kaslo.

Arrangements are still being made so

please watch for details.

If friends so desire, memorial donations

may be made to the Kaslo & District Arena

Association https://kasloarena.ca/ and

the Kaslo & District Public Library https://

kaslo.bc.libraries.coop/ . Expressions of

sympathy can be forwarded to the family

at the Thompson Funeral Service website

Seeking cannabis

experts

The Community Futures Central Kootenay

Cannabis Business Transition Initiative is

pleased to announce the launch the Cannabis

Economic Development Task Force.

For decades, the cannabis industry has been

a resilient part of the Kootenay economy, culture,

and agriculture sector. The task force

seeks to build on this legacy and develop the

economic potential in the region.

Economic development opportunities

include:

• Identify areas for policy change that

lower barriers for those seeking a federal

licence to produce or process cannabis;

• Develop a regional brand that conveys

both the geographic origin and the

regional characteristics that have already

garnered an enthusiastic following;

• Influence the development of organic

standards and certification for cannabis;

and,

• Enable networking and conversations

that foster collaborations and increase

opportunities for Kootenay cannabis

producers.

The Cannabis Economic Development Task

Force will include industry representatives,

local government, economic development

organizations, and those directly involved

in the sector, including cultivators and

processors.

❤❤

The Cannabis Economic Development Task

Force will be selected through an application

process that considers location, and diversity

of voices and perspectives. This task force will

have the most impact when its decisions and

priorities are built on direct experience of the

sector and robust conversations.

If you want to help the local cannabis sector

thrive and have the relevant experience, please

apply to join the Cannabis Economic Development

Task Force by September 21, 2020.

Visit futures.bc.ca/cannabis-task-force for the

application. Questions can be sent to cannabis@ckfoodpolicy.ca.

Thank you

to tree planters

According to John Betts, executive director of

the Western Forestry Contractor’s Association

(WSCA), this year’s summer planting season

is within days of ending with no COVID-19

reported across the planting, nursery, and forestry

sector since the pandemic began. More

than 300 million trees were planned for this

year and the final 20 million were planted in

late August in the Interior and on the Coast.

We congratulate WSCA, John and President,

Bruce Blackwell for their tremendous advocacy

and organizing efforts this spring to get

the safety pieces in place for the planting season

to go ahead link to their newsletter

Slocan Valley

HOME HARDWARE

Forest Enhancement Society of BC (FESBC)

Board Chair Jim Snetsinger shares an open

letter with tree planters who contributed to

“BC’s most successful tree planting season

ever.” Well over 5,000 workers planted about

300 millions seedlings. The Board and staff of

FESBC, along with so many others within the

province, collectively express gratitude for the

remarkable work under more than usually trying

conditions.

Training funding for

builders

The RDCK is entering into a Contribution

Agreement with FortisBC for Built Better

funding which will provide funding for

BC Energy Step Code and high performance

building training for builders and building

officials within the RDCK.

BC Energy Step Code is an optional compliance

path in the BC Building Code that local

governments may use, if they wish to incentivize

or require a level of energy efficiency in

new construction that goes above and beyond

the requirements of the BC Building Code.

The FortisBC Built Better funding aligns

with the RDCK’s Regional Energy Efficiency

Program (REEP). REEP is designed to deliver

a consistent regional campaign on energy efficiency

opportunities in new construction and

existing homes.

Grazie Tutti!

The Nelson Italian-Canadian Society first

annual Italian Sausage Fundraiser was a

resounding success. On the evening of August

9th, the aroma of BBQ Italian sausages was

present in the air in and around Nelson as customers

were eager to sample the fresh savoury

sausages. Despite COVID-19 restrictions, the

society garnered nearly 450 online orders.

The NICS, along with other community

groups, has not been able to organize their

traditional fundraising events due to the

COVID pandemic. For the society, this meant

they couldn’t host their annual Nelson Road

Kings Car Show Italian sausage BBQ. So they

decided to fundraise by selling their popular

fresh sausages instead.

Their online pre-sales smashed the expectations

of the society directors, leading them

and a group of a dozen society volunteers to

produce close to 2300 mild and hot italian sausages

on the August 8 and 9th weekend.

NICS President Paul Boscariol was thrilled

with the community response to the fundraiser,

saying “I am always amazed at the

amount of support the people in the Nelson

area provide to community groups like ours.

The event reached beyond Nelson, with some

customers coming from Trail and Castlegar to

pick up their orders.”

The funds raised by this event will go toward

two Nelson Italian-Canadian Society scholarships

presented to recent LVR grads while the

rest will be allocated to other charitable commitments

the society has in the community.

Boosted by the success of the sausage fundraiser,

and with wine making season quickly

approaching, the society is investigating

options relating to ordering California wine

grapes and juice as a possible fundraiser. For

people interested in more information about

ordering grapes or juice, they may email

nelsonitaliancanadiansociety@gmail.com.

Details will also be available on the NICS Facebook

page: @NelsonItalianCanadianSociety

What a gorgeous cat, hey! He came in as a stray and he is still a very

shy little man, but boy oh boy has he ever come a LONG way from

never letting anyone pet him to now being a very loving and curious

cat! He enjoys sprawling out when the sun is beaming in. Also enjoys

all-of-the-head-and-upper-back scratches. He tends to do amazingly

well with other cats, but we are still unsure about dogs. He is the

sweetest cat with the lightest demeanor. If you’re willing to take the

time and really get to know this goofy, shy, handsome man, then we

think he is the perfect fit for you!

Three RDCK ice rinks

scheduled to reopen

Nelson, BC: The Regional District of

Central Kootenay (RDCK) is targeting to

reopen three ice rinks at RDCK facilities in

Castlegar (Castlegar & District Community

Complex), Creston (Creston & District

Community Complex) and Nelson (Nelson

& District Community Complex) on Monday

September 14. Ice rinks have been closed

since March 16 due to COVID-19. Staff will

consult with user groups about planning the

reopening of Pioneer and Civic Centre arenas

in Castlegar and Nelson, as well as the curling

rink in Creston in the near future.

Under the guidance of the Provincial Health

Officer (PHO), RDCK Community Services

has been focused on working with provincial

organizations and local government recreation

services to safely reopen and offer a

limited variety of programming. RDCK staff

have created ice rink specific safety and occupancy

plans for each of its facilities, which

will assist users in aligning their safety plans

for ice usage. Initially the reopening process

will be slow and deliberate for primary community

partners. This includes the Kootenay

International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL),

minor hockey associations, Skate Canada

clubs, Speed Skating Canada and adult recreational

leagues. Expanded programming

and private rentals will potentially be offered

in the future depending on the ability of all

users of the facilities to follow the necessary

safety plans and the direction of the PHO.

Organizations have been asked to provide

ice requests for the 2020-21 season and submit

a COVID-19 safety plan. This plan will

work in conjunction with return to sport

guidelines set forth by each respective sport

and the RDCK arena safety plans to determine

how users will use the facilities. The

RDCK will review all safety plans to ensure

compliance with the RDCK COVID-19 safety

plan before the ice can be booked. Meetings

with regular ice user groups across the region

have been on-going to ensure a clear understanding

of the process.

The RDCK’s Aquatic Task Force is working

closely with the Life Saving Society and

BELL

the Red Cross Society on a COVID-19 safety

plan for all indoor pools to ensure the safety

of our staff, participants and the community.

The goal is to target early October for starting

limited aquatic programing and rentals with

our community partners.

Recreation and park services are reviewed

regularly as new information and protocols

become available. The RDCK appreciates the

patience of all our users as we implement new

expanded services with COVID-19 policies

and procedures in place.

For up to date information regarding openings

and closures of specific areas of recreation,

please visit www.rdck.ca/recreation.

What will the world

look like in 20 years?

Watch a new feature documentary and join

in a community discussion about the future,

and help EcoSociety fundraise to help bring

positive change to our communities.

2040 is a new feature documentary that

looks to the future and is vitally important to

watch right now. The movie focuses on solutions

and opportunities to share a fresh and

optimistic perspective of the climate crisis.

We’re showing the movie the week of September

24 to October 1, then we’re hosting a

virtual community discussion on October 1

to discuss the movie, how you think we can

bring some solutions to the Kootenays, and

what you envision for your 2040.

This event is in collaboration with volunteers

from the local chapter of Citizens’ Climate

Lobby and EcoSociety volunteers.

“It’s so refreshing to watch a positive movie

about the future of the planet which intertwines

climate change, renewable solutions

and inspiring people from around the world,”

says Laura Johnson, EcoSociety’s community

giving coordinator.

Inspired by his 4-year old daughter,

award-winning director Damon Gameau

embarked on a global journey to meet innovators

and changemakers in the areas of economics,

technology, civil society, agriculture,

education and sustainability. He found that

people all over the world are taking matters

into their own hands, from marine permaculture

to decentralised renewable energy

projects.

2040 is a story of hope that looks at the very

real possibility that humanity could reverse

global warming and improve the lives of

every living thing in the process. It is a positive

vision of what could be, instead of the

dystopian future we are so often presented.

What do you need to do to be part of this?

Purchase a ticket on EcoSociety’s website

to the event with a donation of $6 or more.

On September 24, we’ll email you the link to

watch 2040 at home in your own time before

October 1. At 7 pm on October 1, join us for

a virtual community discussion about the

movie. Everyone who donates to watch the

movie is welcome.

After watching the film, participants will

also have the opportunity to explore what

their own 2040 may look like through a creative,

nature-based activity led by Sarah West,

environmental arts therapist. Participants

are welcome to bring their

explorations and creations

to the community discussion

on October 1.

Your donation gets you

the link to watch the 2040

movie, an invitation to the

community discussion, and

access to take part in the

inspirational art project.

“It’s quite simply a movie

that makes you want to

leave your home cinema

and do whatever you can to

make a positive impact in

the world,” Johnson says.

Selkirk College adopts

mandatory face mask policy

In keeping with provincial government directions to temper

the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the regional post-secondary

now requires all students, staff and visitors to don a face

mask where physical distancing is difficult to maintain.

“This is an important step that will help ensure the health

and safety of our Selkirk College community,” says Vice President

of College Services Kerry Clarke. “As our region moves

further into recovery, Selkirk College will be an important

part of how we manage the pandemic going forward. Wearing

a non-medical face mask is an effective measure to limit

the spread and allow necessary in-person activity on our

campuses.”

Non-medical face masks will be required in all indoor common

areas such as lobbies, hallways, stairwells, washrooms,

libraries, bookstores, study spaces, elevators, kitchens and

other areas that are shared or engaged in activities risking

violation of the two-metre physical distancing requirement.

If working outdoors where the two-metre rule is in jeopardy,

face masks must also be worn.

The new policy is part of Selkirk College’s comprehensive

health and safety plan that is allowing the post-secondary to

provide learners an opportunity to study in-person where

possible and online where required. Several programs have

been running throughout the summer with a mix of in-person

and remote learning. The fall semester begins in September

where the bulk of the programs will resume.

“With strict adherence to guidelines put forward by the Provincial

Health Officer, our staff have been working diligently

to prepare procedures and an adapted physical environment

that will allow us to deliver our programs in the coming

months,” says Clarke. “We have already witnessed success in

trades programs on the Silver King Campus and other cohorts

who have been busy learning over the last couple of months.

The face mask policy is one more move towards making people

understand that safety is our number-one priority.”

Over 100 Years of Sales Experience

Same great service - same great guys.

They won’t sell you a vehicle... they will help you buy one!

Though the new policy has just been introduced, students

and staff who have been engaged with in-person delivery of

curriculum have been wearing non-medical face masks where

physical distancing is not possible

“I feel good about wearing a mask and that everyone else

is doing it too,” says Electrical Foundation Program student

Logan Hildebrand. “It’s worth it to me, to be safer and doing

my part in not spreading the virus.”

To ensure access to a supply, Selkirk College ordered 6,000

non-medical cloth face masks which were made by Grand

Forks quilter Florence Vatkin and her team at Caba’s Quilting

Cottage. The epic order of high quality masks exhausted Vatkin’s

cloth supply and has added an important local touch to

the new normal.

“Given the uncertain times and the impact COVID-19 is

having on our local communities, it is very important to the

college that we support local businesses,” says Selkirk College’s

Health & Safety Advisor Donna Drover. “These masks were

made by a group of women who truly love what they do and

my hope is that all employees, students and visitors can extend

that further by showing that they respect one another by wearing

their mask.”

The masks will be handed out to employees and staff who

will start to return to campuses and learning centres in the

next couple of weeks. The fall semester begins on September 8.

COVID-19 and the preparations being put in place at: https://

BC Transit buses requires

riders to wear masks

BC Transit, in alignment with TransLink and other transportation

agencies, will be proceeding with mandatory use of

face coverings on buses in BC Transit communities across the

province beginning Monday, August 24.

Accommodations will be permitted for children under the

age of 5 and those that cannot wear a face covering for health

reasons. Customers will be expected to supply their own face

covering for their transit journey.

We recognize the advice from health professionals, including

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, has been to

wear face coverings when physical distancing is not possible

including on transit vehicles. Customers have indicated making

the use of face coverings mandatory will create a more

comfortable environment.

While face coverings will be mandatory, the policy will be

implemented as an educational step without enforcement. The

educational position is aligned with TransLink and other transit

agencies in Canada.

We have been working hard to ensure customers are aware

of our new policy through promotion and signage. We will

continue to work with our local government partners to make

transit a comfortable environment for staff and customers.

The Together We Ride campaign continues across the province,

promoting the need to work together to make the transit

journey comfortable for customers. Details are available here:

bctransit.com/together-we-ride

For more details about the mandatory mask policy and BC

Transit’s response to COVID-19, please visit bctransit.com or

Federal help extended

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy but they

continue to face economic challenges and uncertainty during

the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the

Honourable Chrystia Freeland, has announced that the application

deadline for the Canada Emergency Business Account

(CEBA) is extended from August 31 to October 31, 2020.

The government is working closely with financial institutions

to make the CEBA program available to those with qualifying

payroll or non-deferrable expenses that have so far been

unable to apply due to not operating from a business banking

account.

Further details on these changes will be released in September,

including a new business account opening process

through which qualifying businesses will be able to apply.

The Deputy Prime Minister is also announcing that the

Business Credit Availability Program (BCAP) is extended

to June 2021. Through BCAP, the government is supporting

the flow of additional credit that businesses need to maintain

operations and keep employees on the payroll. Export Development

Canada (EDC) and the Business Development Bank

of Canada (BDC) will continue to work with lenders to support

access to capital for Canadian businesses of all sizes in all

sectors and regions.

CEBA and BCAP are both part of the Government of Canada’s

COVID-19 Economic Response Plan, which is helping

Canadians and businesses deal with the economic impact

of the ongoing pandemic. The measures under this plan are

helping businesses protect the jobs that Canadians depend

on, keep their doors open, and bounce back as the economy

gradually recovers.
