Feasibility study underway for
new rental housing in Kaslo
On October 13, Kaslo Mayor and Council gave the green
light to the Kaslo Housing Society to begin studying the feasibility
of creating new dedicated rental apartments in downtown
Kaslo. The proposed building, which could potentially provide
8-10 studio and larger apartments, would be located behind the
Kemball Centre on A Avenue.
The 75 x 100-foot lot behind the Kemball Centre is presently
under-utilized as a secure bus parking and storage area for
Kaslo Infonet. Working with their development partner, New
Commons Development under its Small Communities Initiative,
the housing society would begin a period of public consultation,
and assess the geotechnical and other site constraints.
An architect, Christine Ross from Sanca, has been hired to
provide high level concept drawings that can be adapted in
response to community input.
New Commons Development
– Small Communities Initiative is
already working with several small
communities in the region to assist
local housing providers in solving
the challenges of developing
community housing. They bring a
much-needed level of expertise and
experience to the work ahead for
Kaslo: securing project financing,
beginning with a strong proposal to
BC Housing’s Community Housing
Fund, deadline January 15, 2021.
The Kaslo Housing Society, the
Village and New Commons developed
a solid working relationship
earlier this year while evaluating
the feasibility of acquiring the Kaslo
Bay property, which unfortunately is
not going forward. But there was a
positive takeaway from that effort.
We were able to pivot when the Village-owned
land behind the Kemball
Centre was suggested as a possible
site for long-term rental housing.
The site has many advantages that
the site near the Public Works yard
(the “Lovers Site”), which is currently
leased by the housing society, does
not. In 2018, a proposal in response
to a call by BC Housing, very similar
to the January 2021 Request for Proposals,
had been submitted by the
Housing Society. It was explained to
the society that the reason that proposal
failed was because the Lovers
site had no services – no access, no
water line, no electrical/phone service,
and of course, no sewer.
The A Avenue site has all of these
Please see the ad in this paper for
opportunities to learn more about
the project. More opportunities to
learn and comment will be offered as
the feasibility study unfolds.

In 2019, government made changes to the Labour Relations
Code that were supported by recommendations put
forward by an independent and expert review. This review
was completed in 2018 by a balanced committee of special
advisers, including an employer and a labour representative
and included recommendations based on a thorough public
The review identified one important area regarding successorship
protections for the forestry sector that needed further
consultation before any further recommendations could be
made. For this reason, government intends to establish an
industrial inquiry commission (IIC) under the code to review
contract tendering in the forestry sector, outside the scope of
any Indigenous or First Nations interests.
“Protecting workers’ job security and benefits will help with
the economic recovery of the BC forestry sector,” said Doug
Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource
Operations and Rural Development. “That’s why we’ll appoint
an IIC to reach out to industry experts, unions and employers
to better understand successorship and contract tendering in
The outcome of an industrial inquiry commission will help
guide future potential changes to the Labour Relations Code
or the code’s regulations.
Improving fairness for workers and ensuring balance in
workplaces are shared priorities between government, the

in solidarity with thousands of people across Canada in Castlegar’s 3rd
Coldest Night of the Year, a National walkathon for homelessness.
The Castlegar Youth Action Network and Homelessness Partnering
Strategy Programs want to thank you!
We also want to thank the many
people and businesses that
have shown support, year after
year, for local people experiencing
homelessness and other
vulnerabilities, and for our youth,
a vulnerable population in itself
and one whose members help
plan and contribute to this event
A big thank you to all of those
who aren’t named in this release.
Again, to the 86 walkers, the 12
teams, the 160 donors and the
66 volunteers who made this
event happen. We could not do
this without you!
The businesses that have
shown support for this cause as
sponsors, we appreciate you and
your commitment to building a
community that picks people up
and helps them when they are
down. Mercer Celgar – our lead
sponsor from day one, Martech
Electrical, Teck Trail Operations,
Kootenay Savings and Heritage
Credit Unions, thank you for
showing your support year after

year! Wood Wyant, thank you
for joining as a sponsor for the
We want to reach out and thank
all the businesses that provided
free or in-kind services to support
this event – and those who make
teams for walking alongside
other community members.
• Our media sponsors: the
Pennywise, The Goat Radio,
EZ Rock, The Castlegar Source
and the Castlegar Daily News.
As a non-profit we need your
help promoting our event!
• Our venue sponsors, the United
Church and Speedy Auto
Glass, for hosting our registration,
opening ceremonies and
outside rest stop.
• Our local grocery stores and
restaurants for supplying us
with donations to feed our
volunteers and walkers on
walk day: No Frills, Safeway,
Kootenay Market, Mc Donald’s
and Tim Hortons, and this
year, the Bhudda Bistro who
handed out soup to the walkers
along the way! The warm
cup of coffee or hot chocolate,
soup or a muffin goes a long
way on a cold day in the winter.
Finally, to the dozens of small
businesses that provided in-kind
donations and gift certificates for
our participants. Thank you!
As the Coordinator for the
Castlegar Youth Action Network
and the Director for Castlegar‘s
Coldest Night of the Year I also
want to acknowledge and thank
all the people involved in developing
service provider partnerships
that helped execute and
build momentum for this event
while giving youth and students a
chance to be a part of a catalyst
for local change.
Thank you to the Castlegar Youth
Rotary Interact group for once
again organizing and hosting the
Thank you to the Selkirk College
School of Nursing, Social Work
and Child and Youth Care for
continuing to provide practicum
students, for recruiting teams
and developing unique learning
opportunities, and for creating
a trans-disciplinary practicum
around this event. We love having
the students get involved.
In 2020, a new partnership and
a new event was formed. Stanley
Humphries School – thank you
so much for hosting the first annual
Coldest Day of the Year,
an event entirely run by youth,
fundraising for the same goals.
We appreciate that you took
notice of the need for support in
our community and that you saw
fit to trust CDCSS to do a most
amazing job delivering the funds
to those in need. Thank you to all
the Stanley Humphries staff and
students who embarked on the
journey to run this event!
Together, these people
and the two events raised
$11,415.00 for the Castlegar
and District Community
Partnering Strategy and Castlegar
Youth Action Network
In 2021, we will host this event
again. Now more than ever, people
affected by these vulnerabilities
need our help! Thank you to
everyone involved and to all the
people who will sign up and be a
part again, for years to come!
2021 Coldest Night is coming. It
will be different this year and we
will need everyone’s support now
more than ever. For this event everyone
can help to do something
to help someone in need. It feels
great to do it!

Nelson’s Cold War Bunker
opens to the publc
The stark furnishings of Nelson’s Cold War Bunker are displayed.
During the height of the Cold War, in the 1950s and 1960s,
nearly 50 bunkers were constructed across Canada. Their purpose
was to shelter up to 8,000 officials in the event of a nuclear
war, and they were commonly found in secure locations in a well
constructed federal building, such as the Nelson Post Office.
Few people knew about the existence of Nelson’s own
bunker, until 2013 when Touchstones Nelson Museum
began offering private tours. Since then the Museum
board and staff have been working to preserve
and prepare the space for public viewing.
After many years of planning, the Cold
War Bunker is opening to the public as
a permanent museum exhibition and
“The Touchstones Nelson team
is thrilled that after renovations,
the development of an exhibition
and educational programming
collections storage, an updated
HVAC system to meet museum-standards,
new lighting, and more,
the Bunker will open in October!
This project has been a tremendous
team effort spanning
many years. We have so many
people to thank—past staff and
Board members; current volunteers,
Board and Staff; the Grey
Building owners; the City of Nelson;
our many funders, and more.
We look forward to welcoming
you to the space.” says Astrid Heyerdahl,
executive director of Touchstones
“It has been fascinating uncovering
the story of this largely unknown part of
Nelson’s history,” says Jean-Philippe Stienne,
archivist and collections manager at
Touchstones Nelson Museum.
“I am delighted that we are able to finally share
the secrets of the bunker with the community, and
welcome visitors into this Cold War era time capsule of
The exhibition explains the role of the bunker in the context of
the extraordinary world wide tensions at that time. Among the
items preserved from the original bunker,
visitors can view a ‘Mobile Feeding
Unit’, a self-contained ration kit that
converted to a table; a Geiger counter,
and many cold-war related items from
the Touchstones Nelson collection,
and on loan from other museums.
The bunker kitchen and Civil Defence
Coordinators Office have been recreated,
and include many items that were
originally found in the bunker.
“The current board of directors, as
well as all past board members, have
been fully supportive of this incredible
heritage project,” says Sheila Achilles,
Chair of the Board. “We are greatly
looking forward to opening the space
to the public to offer more educational
and history interaction. We are proud
of the staff and volunteer team who has
made this project happen”
The Bunker opens to the public
on Saturday, October 17 at 2 pm,
with a members-only showing
from 11:30-2. Due to distancing
restrictions, tours of 10 are
booked for 30 minute time
slots, which must be registered
in advance by visiting

“I’m not a career politician; I’m running
because people have said ‘we
need you’ because they know that I’m
tenacious, resilient, and adaptable, and
those are the qualities we need in an
effective local MLA,” she explained.
Finley’s supporters agree.
“I’ve never understood this mentality
that “I’ll vote NDP or Liberal or
whatever, no matter who is on the ballot,”
said Nelson’s Maureen Hendry. “I
vote for the person who I think is best
suited to represent me in Victoria, and
in this election, there’s no question that
it’s Tanya Finley.”
That sentiment has been echoed to
Finley throughout the campaign.
“Maybe this election will be the one
that really shows that old, outdated
doesn’t work in a new reality, shaped
by COVID and economic challenges,”
she said. “We need people of all political
persuasions working together, and
naked partisanship just doesn’t cut it
“If you’re running and your only message
is ‘the other guys were bad decades
ago’, that’s rearview mirror thinking,
and we really need MLAs working for

Michelle Ingrid Hansen 1969 ~ 2020
New magazine for you!
It is with the utmost sorrow that we
mourn the loss of Michelle Ingrid
Hansen, who passed suddenly at the
age of 50 on September 26, 2020.
Michelle will be lovingly remembered
by Hans Hansen, her husband
of 28 years; her two daughters
Daniella and Mikenna Hansen; her
brother Neil Hartung; and parents
Percy and Ingrid Hartung, who will
always cherish the memory of their
Michelle Hansen was born on October
18, 1969 in Nelson,
BC at Kootenay Lake
Hospital. She certainly
made an entrance
when she came into
her parents with the
surprise addition of her
twin brother Woody.
Michelle made sure she
was the first twin to
greet her loving parents.
Flanked by her brothers, Neil and
Woody, in the cozy town of Kaslo,
BC, Michelle was always ready and
able to circumvent any problems that
arose. One of Michelle’s particularly
memorable conquests still brings a
smile to her parents’ face.
One morning when the children
were young, her mother had baked
a particularly large batch of cookies.
However, once they were out of
the oven, Ingrid had to leave them
unattended to see to a few chores
outside. She left specific instructions
to her three children that no cookies
were to be eaten in her absence and
that she had counted every cookie to
be sure. But that wasn’t going to stop
Michelle. Upon returning from her
chores, Ingrid found that Michelle
and her brothers had followed their
mother’s instructions in a somewhat
creative fashion. Not a single cookie
was missing, but the three children
had satisfied their hunger by taking a
bite out of each and every one.
Never one to stand idly by when another
person was in need of a helping
hand, Michelle was constantly
looking out for others. From a young
age, she possessed a truly amazing
sense of compassion. As a girl, Michelle
would bring home peers from
school who were being bullied or
some who were simply
in need of a friend.
Everyone around her could find a
friend in Michelle. Her mother and
father warmly remember these times
of truly inspiring grace and kinship
beaming from their daughter.
Never further than a heartbeat away, we will forever hold you
dearest in our hearts. We love you.
You have your own set of wings now, Michelle.
As so many people know, Michelle
carried her loving nature throughout
the entirety of her life. She loved her
daughters with every fibre of her being,
providing them with astounding
care and attentiveness.
Michelle also bestowed her gift of
caring to the many senior citizens
she looked after in Kaslo—they too
were a big part of Michelle’s life and
always at the forefront of her mind.
Not a day went by that Michelle
didn’t have a big smile on her face or
a story to share about someone she
loved and cared for in Kaslo. And,
indeed, not a day has passed, nor will
come to be, that those people whom
Michelle loved so much, would falter
if asked to share an equally warm
and loving story about her.
It is extremely difficult to summarize
in only a few words the story of a
person who lived with such vivacity.
With such elegance. With such grace
and brilliance. A woman with so
much personality and originality. A
woman who touched the hearts of
absolutely everyone who was fortunate
enough to have
known her. Michelle’s
smile illuminated every
room she entered;
she was and is a beautiful
Her presence will
never be forgotten. The
memories of Michelle
that we all share and
those private memories
we only shared
with her…in those
lovely memories, Michelle lives on
eternally. The family hopes it won’t
be too long, perhaps the spring,
when all who knew and loved her
can gather together safely in celebration
of Michelle’s life.
Brent MacDonald features in
one of the stories in the new online
magazine, Living Here.
Living Here is a new online
publication that highlights
the positive solutions coming
out of our rural communities
around healthy living, clean
energy, land stewardship,
and strong rural economies.
It’s a not-for-profit,
non-partisan online magazine
with no advertising that
captures stories about the
people and land that make
small towns and rural living
such a treasure.
Living Here features the
work of three local writers,
Sarah Beauchamp, Anna
Lamb-Yorski and Sarah
Lord. Each writer has one
feature story in the launch
of the new magazine. The
stories take an in-depth look
at people in the Kootenays
and surrounding area making
changes to their lives
that help keep them eating
healthy, staying active and
connecting to their roots.
“These are stories about
the people and values that
we all care about. Like people
around the campfire or
a family at a holiday meal,
we share stories that let us
learn about each other’s lives
and help us help each other
to enjoy and take care of our
home,” Sarah Beauchamp
They include the story of
two people who have had
similar experiences finding
a new appreciation for their
heritage by working the
land, a look at the past, present
and future of the Rock
Creek Fall Fair and its impact
on the community, and an
insight into the gardening
resurgence resulting from
“I think each story will ask,
how can we live better lives?
Our health and safety, our
quality of life, and our local
communities are shared priorities,”
Sarah Lord says.
“Despite our differences,
we all care about our community
and show it in different
ways. Living Here hopes
to highlight this,” says Anna
Living Here shows small
towns telling big stories.

MY FOREVER THANKS from fickle
Siri, who’s never completed a single
call either before or after this, except
this once, to MX to ED. Who pulled
off an uncertain but crazy rescue;
followed by SL in TD’s borrowed
car getting me Up the Hill; to D.G.
who opened early for business on a
Saturday! & Dr. S. explaining there
wasn’t any skin left to stitch my
wounds together but gave me his
time & a Really, Really efficacious
pain shot; to my sweet sis PA who
made the trip to Nelson less scary.
In Nelson, I much appreciated the
kind manner of mom-to-be nurse
M, and the x- ray lady giving me tips
on how she gets blood out of white
stuff; & Dr. M. who smiled when, at
the end of one long adventure, told
me I was in luck, that tetanus shots
were free all day! And he was right,
I am lucky, to be surrounded by
giving people (and great wildlife),
making celebrating my 74th year
next month, all the more probable.
But, in answer to the one question
I get from all this, the answer is No,
I will not be ‘severing’ contact with
my beloved, my cherished M.B.

“Nelson-Creston is a special
riding in the province. I have
been asked by many people
across the Kootenays to run
for MLA. Voters here have a
chance to send a strong voice
for real change to the Legislature

have to worry about strategic
voting. It’s a clear contest
between the NDP and
BC Greens. Voters here can
freely choose the strongest
voice that represents them
for the policies they want.”
BC Greens are strong supporters
of local economies
and innovative small businesses.
We love our natural
mountain home and we recognize
the climate change
dangers we face from forest
fires and smoke pollution.

hard to move towards sustainable
living that deals

Hallowe’en in a pandemic?
In the West Kootenay we LOVE Hallowee’en – even though
it’s almost always cold and drizzly. But in these times, how best
can we have fun safely, and make sure our kids stay safe? The
following are guidelines published by the BC Centre for Disease
Dr Bonnie sez…
• Skip Halloween parties this year
• Trick or treating in small groups can be a safe and a fun
• Get creative in making space when handing out treats
No matter how you celebrate Halloween this year…
• Turn off your porch light and stay at home if you are
sick or self-isolating.
• Try including a non-medical mask or face covering as
part of your costume.
• Costume masks should not be worn over non-medical
masks or face coverings as that may make it difficult to
• Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer often.
Leave the parties behind. Indoor gatherings, big or small,
put people at higher risk of getting COVID-19. Instead, celebrate
with your favourite Halloween movie or other traditions
that you can do with your household or social group. If you host
or attend a small party, keep it within your social group (stick
to six). You should know everyone who attends, no plus ones.
Follow our guidelines for safer celebrations.
• Don’t pass around snacks, drinks, smokes, tokes, and
• Be more outside, than inside. Keep your space well-ventilated
with windows open.
• Avoid using props that can cause coughing, such as
• Be careful with hand sanitizer and open flames - hand
sanitizer is very flammable!
Trick-or-treating can be done safely by following these
• Respect homes by staying away if the lights are out.
• Keep to your local neighbourhood this year.
• Avoid trick-or-treating in busy areas or indoors (in
places like malls) since there may not be enough space
to distance. Indoor spaces may require a non-medical
mask or face covering.
• Trick-or-treat in a small social group, stick to six people.
• Leave space between you and other groups to reduce
crowding on stairs and sidewalks.
• Wash your hands before you go out, when you get
home, and before eating treats.
• Keep hand sanitizer with you if eating treats on the go.
• You don’t need to clean every treat. You should instead
wash your hands after handling treats and not touch
Get creative handing out treats
Use tongs, a baking sheet or make a candy slide to give more
space when handing out candy.
Plan to hand out individual treats instead of offering a

Be more outside, than inside.
If you can, stand outside your door to hand out treats. Then

Robertson creates large-scale
drawings reminiscent of botanical field
The work invites us to consider history,
land and resource politics, and
carbon’s duality: life-bearing element
as well as insidious fossil fuel. Walking

exhibition that will have the viewer contemplating
the coexisting human and
geologic bodies in our biosphere.
Life Cycles: Using both acrylics and
oils, Salmo based painter Tia Reyden
captures the distinct scenery in the West
Kootenay. Inspired by nature, Reyden
uses light as a key component to communicate
mood and atmosphere in her
work. This exhibition showcases a series
of Reyden’s recent work featuring local
landscapes depicted through the lens of
the changing seasons.

Salmo, Silverton and Slocan have recently completed a Housing
Needs Assessment and shared regional findings through two
community webinars in late September.
A Housing Needs Assessment is a report that describes current
and anticipated housing needs in a community by collecting
data, analyzing trends and speaking with community members.
Under the Local Government Statutes Amendment Act, 2018 a
housing needs report must be done every five years.
Erickson Water System Universal Metering Project. The
board directed staff to prepare an application under the Investing
in Canada Infrastructure Program – Rural and Northern
Communities for the Erickson Water System Universal
Metering Project. Universal metering would help support staff
in achieving the established goals of the Drinking Water Conservation
Plan by reducing water demand, improving water
demand management, as well as potentially reducing operating
costs. The board supports the project and commits to a potential
cost share of $809,478 for the project, as well as any potential
cost overruns from Erickson Utility Services
Agricultural Land Reserve Land Exclusions. The board
adopted the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) Exclusion Policy,
effective September 30, 2020. Residents can no longer apply
directly to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) to have
their land removed from the ALR. Local governments, First
Nation governments, The Province of BC, or prescribed public
bodies must be the applicant on the residents’ behalf.
The Rural Affairs committee has reviewed and discussed in
detail how this will affect zoned and un-zoned rural communities.
While it will be a big change, the intent of the policy is
to direct ALR exclusions to be part of a broader community
discussion on agriculture and support for such requests can be
evaluated at this community level. To accompany the policy, the
board must also establish how the new process will be funded.
Staff will investigate options or mechanisms for cost recovery
for processing ALC exclusion applications.
