The joy of

ice-fishing

Despite a warm start to winter,

many Interior lakes now

have enough ice to be safe for

ice-fishing. Plenty of anglers

have been getting out there to

enjoy this unique and family-friendly

activity.

What gear do you need to get

started? At the minimum, an

ice-fishing rod or short spinning

rod; tackle; an ice auger

for creating a hole in the ice;

and warm clothes. Nice-to-have

items include a chair; ice shelter

fishing tent; and sled for transporting

gear across the ice.

Wondering where to go

ice-fishing? Many lakes are

accessible during winter where

you can catch trout, char,

kokanee, and other species.

❤❤

Check the gofishbc.com website’s

Where-to-Fish map for

ideas on stocked lakes near

you. Thousands of unstocked

lakes in the province have

great fishing, too use the

resources in this post to learn

what species are present in

these lakes. To get an idea

whether a lake has enough ice

cover to fish safely, consider its

elevation, and consistency of

below-freezing temperatures

in the past few weeks. Online

forums and local fishing clubs

can be excellent sources of

information on local conditions.

Research your route

in advance, but remember

that some roads will not be

plowed. Check the Freshwater

Fishing Regulations for any

closures or restrictions on any

water body you intend to visit.

Stay safe. Tell someone

where you are going. Make

sure that the ice is at least

10 centimetres (four inches)

thick before venturing out.

Be respectful of other anglers,

and mindful of the COVID-

19 pandemic.

Little grey handsome boy, this is Puffy. Out of his siblings he

is definitely the most shy, but don’t let that fool you. He is

becoming more and more comfortable every day that he is with

us. If you can give him that extra time you won’t regret it. I know

his photos look a little sad but he really is a happy boy once he

gets used to you. He’s never shown any aggression whatsoever

and has the sweetest demeanour, even when being held.

Kaslo Chamber

You’ve probably heard this story before. A

man and his son were walking along a beach.

Thousands of starfish had washed up on the

shore and were now lying in the sun, drying

and dying. The young boy started throwing

starfish back into the ocean. The man said to

the boy, “Son, why are you even bothering?

You can’t possibly make a difference… there

are just too many!” Without pausing the boy

picked up another starfish, threw it back into

the ocean, and said, “No, but I bet it’ll make a

difference to this one!”

2020 a year like no other! We’ve never

seen the world like this. And there’s so much

that doesn’t make sense. I’ve heard it said (and

maybe even had moments myself) “It’s just too

much; there’s nothing we can do.” Perhaps we

can’t change the world, but can we make a difference

‘to this one’? Perhaps, even in the midst

of these trying times, we can find the good, we

can make the good and together we can do it

better.

The Light Up Parade we just experienced is

a great example. At a time when people were

feeling the heaviness of all the restrictions and

orders, our community stepped up to the plate

and lit up our great Village of Kaslo, bringing

joy and light to all! And we did it all while following

the Public Health Order guidelines.

If you’re thinking, “I didn’t do anything… I

just came out to watch,” let me say: those who

were driving in the parade were cheered and

lifted to see you standing in your front yards

or looking out your windows. You absolutely

played a part!

There are so many great organizations in our

area, with so many opportunities to make a difference.

I would encourage you to join any one

of them to see how you can help.

But since I represent the Kaslo and Area

Chamber of Commerce, let me put in that

‘shameless plug’ for what the Chamber is doing

and how you can be a part of it. Perhaps you

aren’t aware that the Chamber puts on events

such as Kaslo May Days and Light Up, and

runs promotions supporting our business

community such as the Great Gift Giveaway,

Caught in the Act and Choose Local campaigns.

Your membership fees support those

great initiatives.

Here at our Chamber of Commerce we’re

excited to roll up our sleeves and get to work,

eager to make a difference in the lives of the

residents and the businesses throughout our

area. But we can’t do it alone. Nor do we want

to do it alone. Because we know that we are

better together!

So, if you’ve ever thought about becoming

a Chamber member or maybe even join our

Board of Directors, now’s the time. We’d love

to hear from you! Visit our website at https://

kaslochamber.com/membership-account/

membership-levels/ Curious and have questions

about how you could volunteer? Please

email thekaslochamber@gmail.com

Let’s see if we can make a difference to ‘this

one’ together!

First-ever ‘virtual’

Polar Plunge

~ a big splash!

The Langham Cultural Society’s annual

fundraiser the New Year’s Day Polar Plunge

has become a signature community event for

the village of Kaslo. Unfortunately, due to the

pandemic, the event was forced to go virtual

for 2021.

Polar plungers we’re asked to plunge ‘within

their bubble’ and to video the plunge and

share it with the community on the Langham

Facebook page. Plungers we’re encouraged

to be creative and plunge in any way they

wanted.

The event turned out be a big success

about 20 plungers (including four dogs!)

raised over $4,500 for the Langham’s arts, culture

and heritage programs. “We were very

The first ever ‘virtual plunge’ for

the Langham

was a big success!

A huge Polar Bear Hug and

THANK YOU to the Kaslo

community from the Langham

Cultural Society and a big shout

out to our brave plungers and to

all the good folks who pledged

them.

A special thanks to

Kaslo Front Street Market

for providing the plunge

prizes!

You can see all the plunge videos

and our prize winners on the

Langham Facebook page at

www.facebook.com/thelangham

happily surprised with the results.”

says Langham Executive Director

Paul Grace-Campbell. “Because of

the pandemic, we were on the verge

of writing the whole thing off this

year. Then someone had the idea of a

virtual plunge and folks just ran with

it! A big thanks from the Langham to

all who participated.”

Prizes of a $75 gift certificate to

Kaslo Front Street Market were provided.

Karen Pidcock won for gathering

the most pledge money, and

Delanie Smith and her son Tyrell

won for most creative video. You can

process that ensures every life on

Earth begins in a sacred way.

Explore an Indigenous worldview

of childhood, family and the

life cycle. Learn a traditional

approach to child rearing that is

positive and child centred.

North Community Lake Community Services Society

Nelson Civic Centre

to close for the

season

The Regional District of Central Kootenay

(RDCK) will close the Pioneer Arena in Castlegar

on January 18 and the Civic Centre in

Nelson on January 29 for the remainder of

the winter season. The decision was made

after much discussion at both the Castlegar

and District Recreation Commission meeting

on January 12, 2021 and the Nelson and

District Recreation Commission meeting on

January 14, 2021 to close the two ice sheets.

On January 8, 2021 the Public Health

Order which restricts adult participation in

sport was extended without an expiration

date on sections of the order that apply to

sport and fitness. Adults have not been able

to participate in team sports since November

19, 2020. The restriction on adult participation

in team sport and other public

health restrictions has resulted in arena

rental revenue decreasing $118,000 across

the RDCK`s five arenas between September

14 and December 31, 2020 versus the same

time period in 2019. The closure of the arenas

is being done to reduce expenditures in

response to the reduction in revenue.

“We recognize the shared hardship of this

decision and do so with an eye on next year,”

said Keith Page, chair, RDCK Recreation

Commission No.5. “Moving to a single ice

sheet for the remainder of the

season recognizes palpable cost

and personnel constraints. The

community expects us to provide

quality, safe and diverse recreation

opportunities within budget

for all members of our community.

Operating a single rink is the

service level that can be reasonably

delivered within our budget.”

The impact of COVID-19 on

the RDCK’s community services

has been significant. Usage of all

its facilities throughout the region

has dramatically dropped. Adult

indoor team sport is not permitted,

while minor hockey, the

Kootenay International Junior

Hockey League (KIJHL) and

British Columbia Intercollegiate

Hockey League (BCIHL) cannot

play games or travel. No games or

tournaments have been booked

in any RDCK facility, which has

impacted revenue. With reduced

usage of rinks throughout the

RDCK, ice needs can be accommodated

by only keeping the ice

sheets at the Creston, Castlegar

and Nelson and District Community

Complexes open for the

remainder of the winter season.

Rossland continues

renewable energy

leadership

Rossland City Council unanimously

adopted the West Kootenay 100% Renewable

Energy Plan on January 4, 2021.

They are the third local government to

adopt the 100% renewable energy plan that

they have been collaborating on with eight

other West Kootenay local governments

and West Kootenay EcoSociety. The renewable

energy plan aims to save people money,

make Rossland healthier and safer, support

a stronger local economy and lower carbon

pollution.

“I am so pleased that the City of Rossland

adopted the 100% Renewable Energy Plan.

It’s been a pleasure collaborating with our

other local Kootenay government partners

and the West Kootenay EcoSociety to bring

the plan this far. I am confident that by

working together our region can continue

to lead the way towards a low carbon future

by implementing the plan,” says Rossland

Mayor Kathy Moore.

The plan has regional strategies as well

as local actions that each community has

prioritized as the most relevant to their

community.

“It’s been an incredible experience seeing

the community coming together the

past few years to support the council in

the renewable energy transition. Rossland

has been a true leader in the transition to

100% renewable energy, and they are setting

the path forward for other small and

rural communities like theirs to live healthier,

safer and cleaner lives,” says Natasha

Edmunds, organizing director at West

Kootenay EcoSociety.

2020 State of the Basin

The 2020 State of the Basin Snapshot Report is now available.

The Snapshot Report is an annual region-wide check-up

conducted by the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute

(RDI). Using the most recent available data, it examines indicators

of environmental, economic, social, and cultural well-being,

including subjective well-being.

• The 2020 Snapshot Report answers the following questions, and

much more:

• What is the leading factor in human-wildlife conflict in our region?

• What are residents’ perceptions around climate change?

• How much money is invested into major projects within the Kootenay

Development Region?

• What percentage of owner and tenant households have unaffordable

housing?

• How many historic places are recognized within the Columbia

Basin-Boundary Region?

• What is the population of the Columbia Basin-Boundary Region?

• How do high school completion rates within the region compare to

the provincial rate?

• How do residents’ feel about the safety of their community?

The Snapshot Report signals where challenges exist and

where accomplishments can be celebrated. Both challenges and

accomplishments are useful in helping support evidence-based

decision-making by residents and organizations of the Columbia

Basin-Boundary Region. By blending quantitative data

from numerous sources (governments and non-profit organizations)

and qualitative data from the RDI’s subjective well-being

research, a comprehensive understanding of regional well-being

is captured. This research contributes to regional collaboration

by motivating discussion, information sharing, and collective

action.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Columbia

Basin-Boundary Region in 2020, yet limited data to quantify

this impact is available at this time. Some preliminary 2020

data, where available, is included in the Snapshot Report to

start showing the pandemic’s impact. When the 2020 annual

data becomes available, a deeper understanding of the pandemic’s

impact will be known. In the meantime, the 2020

Snapshot Report delivers a summary of conditions leading up

to the pandemic. This provides a useful baseline to compare

future data. As an example, in 2019, there were 594 business

incorporations and three business bankruptcies within the

Kootenay Development Region. Comparing this data to the

2020 data, when it is available next year, will show how the

pandemic impacted the business climate within the Region.

See the State of the Basin website https://stateofthebasin.ca

for more information on the full suite of well-being indicators.

Check back often to see updates as new data becomes available.

Sail Nelson is back

Captain Penny is working away to make sure Sail Nelson will

thrive in 2021. Back in May of 2020 there was too much uncertainty

around how to safely offer courses, so Sail Nelson programming

just didn’t happen. However, over the last 6 months

Captain Penny has been working on safe operating procedures

and practices that include sanitization, wearing masks, and even

reorganizing the curriculum to limit the overlap of movement

of students on the boat. She is confident that programs and

classes can

operate safely

this summer!

Courses

planned for

summer 2021

include Sailing

Essentials.

Sailing Sample

and Coastal

Navigation.

If you have a

love of sailing,

with others in

your region

Call for writers

Culture Days is looking for contributors and writers with

fresh perspectives and unique stories to share.

The arts emerged as a lifeline of joy, hope and reprieve

needed to make it through this past year. Collectively, we’re

imagining what a post-pandemic world could look like and

how we can each contribute to that picture being brighter.

Through that lens, Culture Days has chosen RE:IMAGINE as

the very apt 2021 theme. With an understanding that we cannot

return to how things were, RE:IMAGINE signals a positive

turning point that acknowledges a desire to forge new ideas

and break new ground.

The Culture 365 blog is the spot for innovative and inspirational

stories of cultural engagement and participation from

across the country. This coming year, we’ll be sharing research,

ideas, and stories examining the theme: how are artists, creatives,

cultural organizations, and institutions contributing to

what comes next? What will it take to create a sustainable and

fundamentally inspiring industry that champions essential

diversity, equity, and inclusion? What impact can this have on

the greater public’s perception of arts and culture and its role

in society?

It’s your move.

Are you following an artist collective that is RE:MIXING

their practice? Know of a young activist that is working to

RE:CALIBRATE arts and culture policy in Canada? Has the

past year inspired you to pick up an old artistic skill and RE:-

AWAKEN your creativity?

We’re looking for both English and French pieces running

approximately 800-1,000 words, preferably tied to a Canadian

context. Culture Days is able to offer a flat fee of $300, and can

work with you to develop your piece. Drop us a line, we’re all

ears.

New to the Culture 365 blog? Check out our 2020 blog series

at culturedays.ca to get a sense of the stories we publish and

our style.

Call open until March 12 at 5pm EST. Please email Alyssa

Trudeau at alyssa.trudeau@culturedays.ca with your pitch and

2-3 pieces of previous work.

Helping artists

adapt

Professional artists and others who work

in the arts can get more support to help with

challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic

though a new grant program.

“Together with the arts sector, we are working

hard to make sure that dancers, writers,

painters and other artists can continue being

resilient and finding innovative ways to keep

creating through COVID-19,” said Melanie

Mark, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and

Sport. “We’re building on our support for arts

and culture in British Columbia by helping

artists adapt their work, ensuring our province

has a strong creative industry to enjoy

when the pandemic is over.”

Many artists have been unable to work or

worked less due to the temporary closures

of venues and restricted audience sizes. The

B.C. government is creating a new $500,000

Pivot for Individuals program through the

BC Arts Council to help professional artists,

cultural workers and arts administrators

adapt to these challenges.

Through the

BC Arts Council’s

new program,

people can

apply for up to

$12,000 to learn

new skills or

adapt their practices.

Artists can

apply for a grant

for things such

as modifying a

dance piece for

a smaller audience

or learning

new skills, such

as video editing.

Artists are also

able to apply for

support for professional

development,

like

mentorship or

training.

The program is

available to professional

artists and cultural workers, including:

dancers and choreographers; visual

artists; writers; actors; multi-media artists;

and arts administrators.

Applications are open until Feb. 16, 2021.

The BC Arts Council will adjudicate and

award the grants in early spring 2021.

Pat Henman, theatre artist and BC Arts

Council member commented, “As an independent

artist myself, I know how daunting

it is right now. This new program will be so

welcome by artists trying to maintain their

practice. These grants offer financial support

for professional artists who are vital to our

communities and our economy.”

Quick Facts:

According to Statistics Canada, unemployment

in arts and culture is higher than average

and has not recovered at the pace of other B.C.

industries.

• A 2006 study showed for every dollar

invested through the BC Arts Council,

arts and cultural organizations generate

$1.57 in gross domestic product.

• As part of Stronger BC,

the Province is providing

$21 million to support

arts and culture

organizations’ recovery

through the BC Arts

Council.

• In addition to regular

grants through the

BC Arts Council, the

B.C. government has

provided the following

targeted relief funding

for artists since March

2020:

• More than 108 microgrants

to artists to help

them adapt to changes

in the sector through

the BC Arts Council, in

partnership with Yosef

Wosk Family Foundation

and City of Vancouver.

• More than 740 microgrants

to musicians

to support free livestreams

on Showcase BC

through Creative BC.

CRA issuing T4As

to COVID-19 benefit

recipients

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic,

the Government of Canada rolled

out measures to support Canadians through

this public health crisis. This assistance has

included the delivery of unprecedented financial

support programs through the Canada

Revenue Agency (CRA), such as the Canada

Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), the

Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB),

the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB), the

Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB),

and the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit

(CRCB) . As stated from the beginning,

these benefits which have helped millions

On the way to

zero waste

Almost every piece of plastic ever made

still exists. We are all becoming more aware

of the need to quit putting plastic garbage

into the environment. We need to buy and

use fewer plastics, particularly single use

items and disposables. And most of us are

already taking steps to change our habits.

At first, this seems inconvenient but once

we acquire a new way, it becomes an easy

routine. Here are some alternatives to using

plastics that can be easily incorporated into

our daily lives. We don’t yet have all the

solutions but we can feel proud of the steps

we take and continue to try new habits.

1. Carry your own fabric shopping bags

or baskets. Boxes and paper bags are also

good because they are compostable.

2. Carry washable mesh bags or baskets

for produce or don’t use any (we wash

our produce anyway). Avoid prewrapped

vegetables

3. Carry your own mug, drinking bottle

and metal straw.

4. Store food in glass or stainless steel

containers. Vow to buy no more plastic

refrigerator dishes. Try out the reusable

beeswax wrappers to cover leftovers or

wrap sandwiches.

of Canadians put food on the table and keep

a roof over their head during this crisis are

taxable.

Starting January 11, Canadians will begin

receiving T4A slips from the CRA for these

benefits to support their tax filing. The T4A

is virtually identical to the T4 slips Canadians

are used to receiving from their employers,

but rather than employment income, they

provide the amounts of COVID-19 benefits

received from the CRA in 2020.

If you have questions about the slip, including

if you think there may be a mistake or

have received it in error, please contact the

CRA by phone at 1-800-959-8281. The CRA

knows there have been questions in recent

weeks about eligibility for these programs.

The Government of Canada continues to

5. Avoid cleaning products in plastic bottles.

Along with soap, shampoo and hair

conditioner also come in concentrated bars.

Laundry detergent is available in small dissolving

sheets. Use concentrated cleaning

products and refillable containers. And,

remember, household cleaning can be done

with vinegar and water.

What else can we do? Ask our grocers

about their efforts to reduce or eliminate

plastic from their businesses. Talk to our

neighbours about what they are doing and

learn from

each other.

as we continue to support Canadians through

this crisis.

Canadians who received relief payments

using the My Account for individuals service

or contacting the CRA directly (phone

Canadians who received benefits from Service

Canada will receive a T4E Statement of

Employment Insurance and Other Benefits

from Service Canada in order to complete

their 2020 tax and benefit return. Contact

Service Canada for more information on

T4Es and when they can be expected.

let’s REFUSE to buy or use single use plastics.
