The Chamber’s

Corner

February - March Focus

I fell in love with Kaslo… over the

phone. I can’t even tell you what year

that was, but I’m thinking 2009-ish. My

husband and I had been really running

hard and it was time for a getaway… so

I started searching online for getaways

within a driveable day and found…

Kaslo. I immediately called the absolutely

charming Beach Gables, told the person

at the other end that we wanted to book

a room, she said, “Great! When would

you like to book?” I told her it was for

the following weekend. She laughed and

said “Oh we’re booked until next year!”

I paused. I said, “Please don’t take this

the wrong way, but what is it about your

small town that would cause you to be

booked a year in advance?” This woman

proceeded to speak with me for the next

15-20 minutes telling me all about Kaslo.

I could not tell you exactly what she said,

(I vaguely remember something about a

jazz festival, the mountains??) but what I

do remember … that, as she spoke, I fell

in love with Kaslo… over the phone!

We actually never did visit the area

until many years later. (What can I say..

Life happens!) But it was always there, in

the back of my mind. Occasionally, I’d

think about what life might be like living

in Kaslo. And whenever I’d think about

it, I felt a connection … and peace. So in

late 2016, we visited for the first time; in

2017 we bought a cabin and by 2019 we

were settled in our new home … in Kaslo.

And in 2020 I had the honor of becoming

the Chamber Ambassador for the Kaslo

and Area Chamber of Commerce!

I am so very proud to represent the

Chamber, and the work it has been doing

for this entire area over the years; and I

am proud to represent the varied businesses,

entrepreneurs, professionals and

non-profit organizations that make up

our community.

Here’s some of what I know. Every

Director on our Chamber Board has the

very best interests of our area at heart

and they work from a desire to do what

is best for this great area in which we

live and work. We have big dreams and

plans for recovery, yes, but moving forward,

absolutely, and we need to make

sure we have the right building blocks

in place!

We are looking to add to our Board of

Directors. It is important that we represent

the broad spectrum of what makes

this region ‘tick’.

So here’s the question: Do you have a

desire to make a difference in this great

area that we live in and do you represent

one of the following sectors: Logging/

Forestry, Public Works, Home-based

Business, Non-Profit, Tourism, Agriculture,

Manufacturing, Service Industry,

Arts & Culture, Technology?

Or, do you represent one of the other

communities in our ‘Kaslo and Area’:

Ainsworth, Argenta, Cooper Creek,

Fletcher Creek/Twin Bays, Johnsons

Landing, Lardeau, Meadow Creek, Mirror

Lake, Pineridge, Schroeder Creek,

Shutty Bench, Woodbury?

If you answered yes, and you are ready

to make a difference, please connect

with me via email: TheKasloChamber@

gmail.com to put your name forward for

our new Board of Directors. Our next

AGM is April 5th (to be confirmed) but

we want to get

our ‘duckies in a

a difference …

together.

Anti-racism action,

not just words

School District 8 Kootenay Lake

is dedicated to building awareness and

changing attitudes about racism, both

in the classroom and the workplace.

This past year, world events have

rallied solidarity around exposing the

painful reality of racial inequality and

injustice that exists, and the importance

for organizations to fully embrace

anti-racist values, behaviors, and policies

in order to change our cultures.

This month, School District 8 - Kootenay

Lake is launching a new anti-racism

website: https://antiracism.sd8.

bc.ca/, an online resource that provides

practical guidance to teachers and parents

as they explore issues of race with

students.

The site is divided into four sections,

designed to support and align with

School District 8 Kootenay Lake’s

strategic plan goals of learning, engagement

and strengthening relationships.

KNOW increase our understanding

of systemic racism and being an

anti-racist.

LEARN provide resources for deepening

understanding about racism and

developing an anti-racist mindset.

Nelson family bids adieu to Baker St store Anti-Racism cont’d from pg 3

February is heart month, and one Nelson

business owner has his sights set on a new one.

Chris Dawson owns the specialty foods

shop Culinary

Conspiracy

with his partner

Barb Williams.

Since

late-January,

Dawson has

been in Vancouver

being

monitored by

cardiologists at

St. Paul’s Hospital

while he

awaits heart

surgery. He is

set to get a ventricular

assist

device (VAD), as a stand in for his failing heart

until he can receive a heart transplant.

“A new heart would mean everything to

Chris. It would vastly improve his quality of

life,” Williams said. “Right now his heart is so

compromised that it is not efficiently pumping

the blood throughout his body. He goes

through his day with less than half the oxygen

that a healthy heart would provide.”

Dawson’s heart trouble began just as he

was launching his business. The month after

Culinary Conspiracy opened on Baker Street

in 2006, he developed congestive heart failure

and was airlifted to Kelowna. He now

has an internal pacemaker and defibrillator

implanted in his chest. Still, he frequently has

heart complications that can leave him in the

hospital for weeks at a time.

“It’s a rollercoaster,” said Williams. “It puts

a lot of strain on our family but Chris is not

one to complain. He continues to take it all in

stride.”

Though the heart issues have been ongoing,

the sudden need for transplant came as a

shock.

“We had come down to Vancouver on a buying

trip for the store and for Chris to have a

follow-up cardiology appointment,” Williams

recalled. “After completing the test, the doctors

immediately admitted him into the Cardiac

Intensive Care Unit and proceeded with additional

assessments

needed

in order to

approve him

for a heart

transplant.”

What was

meant to be a

quick, threeday

trip has

turned into an

extended stay.

After Dawson

gets his VAD,

he will need to

stay in Vancouver

for monitoring for two to three months.

The hope is that the VAD will improve the

blood flow and after a few months Dawson

may become

a viable candidate

for a

transplant. If

he is approved

for a transplant

and a

donor heart

becomes

available,

they will

have to live

in Vancouver

for another

three to four

months.

All this

instability has

taken a toll on

their life and

their business.

Culinary

Conspiracy is

a small, family-run

shop.

With no staff to step in while they’re away,

the store was closed for two weeks. Williams

returned in early February to reopen the store,

their daughter will be coming back home to

temporarily run it. However, they’ve decided

to start the process of shutting it down as they

need to focus on Dawson’s recovery.

“We’re going to miss the business very much.

We’ve had so much fun with it over the years

and have made lots of foodie friends,” Williams

said. “We really want to thank our many wonderful,

loyal customers who have supported

us over the past 14+ years. There’s still a bit of

time for them to come in to get their favourite

products before we close for good.”

Culinary Conspiracy opened in the Trading

Company in 2006. It moved to its current

location in the 600 block of Baker Street in

2011. The store sells a wide selection of hard to

find and specialty ingredients including vinegars,

oils, sauces, spices and a whole lot more.

ACT offering ideas to be part of the

anti-racism solution.

“Understanding racism and its roots, questioning

our own privilege and biases, and

slowly dismantling those systems and beliefs

internally and in our schools… is the process

we all need to engage in,” says Perkins.

Upcoming initiatives will include a full

professional development day on April 19,

that will focus on Indigenization of the curriculum

with keynote speaker Chief Dr. Robert

Joseph. Chief Joseph has dedicated his life

to bridging the differences brought about by

intolerance, lack of understanding and racism

Calling all rural writers

Page Turner Awards is

inviting rural writers to get

involved in the Page Turner

Awards 2021.

The Page Turner Awards,

sponsored by ProWritingAid,

is an inclusive writing

and book awards with one

goal to change the lives of

as many writers as possible.

The team at Page Turner

Awards passionately believe

that talented writers can be

from any background, age,

race, religion, or interest.

People who live a quiet

rural life may be talented

writers with undiscovered

literary gems. Whether you

have a countryside guide

about caring for tropical

orchids, a story about renovating

a rural property,

a memoir about a family

drama played out on the

rural landscape, a gasp-inducing

thriller, or the nextbig-thing

comedy involving

heroic country characters,

Page Turner Awards can’t

wait to pass your story to

their panel of influential literary

agents, publishers and

film producers.

Success stories include

three writers winning literary

representation, six

writers winning a writing

mentorship, five writers

winning a publishing contract

and thirteen independent

authors winning an

audiobook production.

Beyond the life-changing

prizes, Page Turner Awards

writers have been most

impressed with the scope of

support offered to them — a

rarity in the world of writing

awards, which usually offer

little beyond a letter confirming

your submission.

The Page Turner Awards

offers so much more than a

simple prize, but instead has

created a supportive writing

community and a “movement”

focused on author

growth and development.

The Page Turner Awards

Fiction Writing Award 2020

winner Mark Stibbe, from

Kent in England, has some

words of advice: “I recommend

all writers, especially

aspiring writers, enter writing

contests. I’m so glad I

entered! Winning the Page

Turner Fiction Writing

Award and receiving a literary

agent to represent me…

wow!”

Agent Yasmin Kane was

immediately hooked on

Stibbe’s story, A Book In

Time, and anticipates a

bright publishing career

ahead for the novelist.

Elizabeth Goodhue from

New Hampshire, USA was

also delighted to gain recognition

for her memoir,

The Truth About Down Syndrome,

which is an emotive

story showing how the lives

of people with Down Syndrome

can be as rich and

rewarding as any other.

Elizabeth said, “When I

heard a literary agent was

interested in my book, I

couldn’t believe it. Now,

The Castlegar and District Recreation

Commission (CDRC) inducted Jennie

Gallo onto the Wall of Fame at the Castlegar

and District Recreation Complex

(CDCC) in honour and recognition for

her outstanding achievements in sport.

The Wall of Fame is a key feature at

the CDCC and its prominent location

ensures appropriate recognition for

Castlegar and District sport and recreation

history.

“I am grateful and humbled to be

included on the Wall of Fame at the

Castlegar Complex,”, said Jennie Gallo.

“Thank you to those that nominated

me and to the Castlegar Recreation

Commission for giving me such an

acknowledgement. I always want to

keep athletics as part of my life. I find it

rewarding these days to encourage people

to use their abilities in sports and to

pursue their goals they are passionate

about achieving.”

Jennie was born and raised in Castlegar

and was an active participant

in both hockey and softball throughout

her childhood. She was part of the

Castlegar minor hockey program from

ages five to 17, winning two provincial

titles with the West Kootenay Wildcats

and three provincial titles with the BC

SUDOKU

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid,

broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve

a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill

each row, column and box. Each number

can appear only once in each row, column

and box. You can figure out the order in

which the numbers will appear by using the

numeric clues already provided in the boxes.

The more numbers you name, the easier it

gets to solve the puzzle!

Winter

Carnival

Cancelled

Rossland’s famous winter

carnival has been around

a long, long time.

In fact, it’s been

around so long that

this year, 2021, was

not the first time

the Carnival has

been cancelled for

a pandemic! The

first winter carnival

was in 1898, and it

ran every year until

the great influenza

outbreak of 1918.

In 1918, the

fast-spreading

influenza epidemic

meant no public

gatherings were

allowed, so the

Carnival had to be

put on hold. This

coincided with an

economic downturn

in Rossland

as the mines slowly

shut down. Then

Just added

50 TON

WRECKER!

came the Great Depression

and World War II… Finally,

in 1947, the festival started

up again for Rossland’s

Golden Jubilee (50 years!)

and had been going strong

ever since.

Of course, in 1918 there

was no social media and no

Rossland Recreation department.

Thanks Rossland Recreation

for keeping the spirit

of the Winter Carnival alive

this year with fun activities

and ways to participate at

home! (See all of Rossland

Rec’s offerings and more for

families listed on the calendar

on the Family Action

Network website https://

We look forward to being

able to have a Winter Carnival

all together again next

year!

Indigenous women face

higher rates of violence than

any other cultural group in

Canada and the United States.

Indigenous families and communities

have been advocating

for generations to make

changes to the colonial system

that often treats the perpetrators

of the violence with

impunity.

The REDress Project, a public

art installation created by

Canadian artist Jaime Black,

works to create space for families

of MMIWG (missing or

murdered Indigenous women

and girls) to tell their stories

and to lend support in the

struggle to protect their loved

ones. The REDress Project is

being shown at both Touchstones

Nelson: Museum of Art

and History, and the trees outside

of Nelson City Hall, from

February 27 to May 29, 2021.

“Indigenous women are the

heart of our cultures and communities

across Turtle Island;

for thousands of years women

were at the centre of the circle,

creating balance and harmony

in our communities,” says

Jaime Black in an artist statement.

“Since the onset of colonization

women and girls have

been especially targeted as a

way of breaking apart communities

and erasing culture in an

effort to assimilate Indigenous

ways of being. The REDress

Project calls in the spiritual

power and presence of our

ancestors, as well as the spirits

of those who have gone missing

or been murdered. The

REDresses stand with us as we

reclaim our circles, reclaim our

voices and re-imagine what it

means to move forward in a

good way.”

“Touchstones Nelson is

proud to present this project,

both in the public sphere and in

our gallery space,” says Astrid

Heyerdahl, executive director

of Touchstones Nelson. “This

The REDress

Project

comes to Nelson

project is supported by our

ongoing partnership with the

West Kootenay Métis Society,

community partners, and

artist Jaime Black. Funding

through the British Columbia

Arts Council has made this

project possible, and we thank

the City of Nelson for permission

to use city public space.

“We hope that this important

work will generate further

conversations about the ongoing

tragedy of Missing and

Murdered Indigenous Women

and Girls and the importance

of meaningful Truth and Reconciliation,”

Heyerdahl adds.

Jaime Black’s work has

been exhibited in several

locations in Canada and the

United States since its inception

in 2011, including: The

Manitoba Legislature, University

of Ottawa, Smithsonian’s

National Museum of

the American Indian, and

a permanent exhibit at the

Canadian Museum of Human

Rights.

The exhibition discusses

serious and upsetting subject

matter, and may be triggering

for some members of the community.

BC Rural Health Hub

pilot is a go

If Covid has taught us anything, it’s that

we’re all in this together. And that what we

know and think we know matters.

This places a tremendous importance on

communications. Not simply top-down, with

information flowing from leaders and decision

makers to citizens, but the other way

’round as well.

This is called civic engagement — the process

of empowering the voices of individual

citizens in helping shape their communities.

Covid has also reminded us that new and

emerging technologies are now, officially, a

fact of everyday life for many rural British

Columbians. From Zoom gatherings with

family and friends to virtual medical appointments

with distant specialists; from sharing

cat videos on Instagram to vitriolic posts

on Facebook, daily life is rapidly becoming

increasingly virtual — whether we like it or

not.

Given this, we asked a few simple questions.

Is it possible to harness some of the virtues of

technology, to empower rural citizens? Is there

a way to provide rural folks with the ability to

hold civil, respectful discussions on topics that

truly matter to them? Can those conversations

Search

and Rescue

Awards

earned

Like so many organizations,

Kaslo

Search and Rescue recently

resorted to an online Christmas

gathering to, well

frankly, relax a little and

celebrate the recognition of

some members for outstanding

contributions.

For a region with a population

of not much more than

a thousand people, the local

Search and Rescue agency

did as many searches and

rescues as Central Okanagan

Search and Rescue did in

2019 which serves a region

of 160,000 people.

While 2020 moved at a frenetic

pace it appears already

as though 2021 is on track

to increase the workload for

the local volunteer group

with 5 call outs already since

January 30 2021.

It is for this reason the

organization is very thankful

for the support of Angry

Hen Brewing, Kaslo Building

Supplies, Kaslo Pharmacy,

Rally4Life and Stellar

Heli-Skiing who have sponsored

the awards for several

years.

The individuals recognized

for the awards were:

Robyn and Glen Skobalski,

Kevin Connor, Chris Cullen,

Jana Poborilova, Hayley

Walker.

of particular local or regional importance be

limited to the folks most affected? And is there a

way to ensure the good ideas and real concerns

of rural communities are effectively shared with

decision makers and other stakeholders?

We decided to find out. Enter the BC Rural

Health Hub pilot.

The purpose of the pilot is to create and test a

cloud-based interactive communications platform

as a tool to increase citizen engagement in

rural health and wellness discussions in a safe,

supportive manner.

The citizen voice is often absent from ongoing

conversations regarding the health and wellness

of rural/remote/First Nations British Columbians.

This despite the fact that both rural citizens

and health delivery groups/agencies have

indicated they would like to see greater citizen

participation and collaboration in rural health

care discussions. Indeed, there are a number

of very important and innovative rural health

care initiatives currently underway that could

benefit from

an increased

level of

rural citizen

input and

engagement.

The geography

of rural

BC is rugged,

For volunteers to commit

enough time to be trained to

the pinnacle of professional

discipline is outstanding

and each and every person

involved in the organization

plays a critical role in

keeping locals and visitors to

the region safe when things

sometimes don’t work out as

planned.

Broader community support

comes from Area D,

Village of Kaslo, BC Community

Gaming Grants and

Columbia Basin Trust.

Kaslo Search and Rescue

would like to thank the local

communities and businesses

for their support and at the

same time to remind you

that no matter what outdoor

activity you are planning, be

prepared. Follow the three

Ts — trip planning, training,

and taking the essentials.

www.adventuresmart.ca is

a great resource to help you

get informed before heading

outdoors.

applying to volunteer for

with its diverse population thinly scattered over

a massive land area. This presents a challenge

to the development of effective communication

tools and processes that encourage and enable

rural citizens to have focused, meaningful, and

constructive interactive conversations on topics

of importance to them.

Thus the rationale for the Health Hub is simple:

it’s hard to imagine effective public health

initiatives and systems without public understanding

and acceptance. And the best way to

ensure that is to empower the public to help

shape those initiatives and systems.

Scope of the proposed pilot

The pilot planning process began in January

2021, with two rollouts planned as of March

1, 2021 — one in Kaslo/North Kootenay Lake

region of the West Kootenay, the other in the

area covered by the Mount Waddington Health

Network (North Vancouver Island/Central

Coast).

The intent of this pilot project is to create

-

a communications platform that is extremely

flexible and can be highly effective in supporting

a wide range of discussions and collaborations

from very focused, facilitated

single topic discussions and consultations led

by specific groups or organizations, to more

open citizen-led discussion forums.

In the case of each pilot, discussion topics

will be selected and curated by local advisory

committees. The BC Rural Centre will provide

guidance and support during the course

of the facilitated pilot, which will run from

March 1 to the end of June. The pilot Hubs

can continue to operate after that, without BC

Rural Centre facilitation, at least until the end

of the year.

This project is made possible and supported

by the Rural Coordination Centre of BC, and

the BC Academic Health Sciences Network.

Climate conference focus on rural

Bringing to light climate

change issues and

priorities in rural British

Columbia is the focus of

an upcoming conference

that aims to build

the skills and knowledge

necessary to reduce

carbon emissions and

adapt to an uncertain

future.

Registration is now

open for Bridging Silos:

Advancing Climate

Adaptation and Low

Carbon Resilience in

Small Communities and

Rural Regions. The free online event will take

place on March 4 and 5, and is hosted by the

Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute

at Selkirk College (RDI). The conference will

bring together experts, climate adaptation

practitioners, community leaders and residents

to explore pathways to a more resilient

and climate-friendly future.

“Whether it’s extreme weather, floods or

wildfire, climate change is affecting the places

where we live, work and play,” says Lauren

Rethoret, Coordinator of the RDI. “Small

communities and rural regions have unique

challenges and opportunities when it comes to

taking action on climate change.”

Registration is now open for the March 4/5

conference Bridging Silos: Advancing Climate

Adaptation and Low Carbon Resilience in

Small Communities and Rural Regions that

will be delivered virtually by the team at the

Selkirk College Applied Research & Innovation

Centre in Castlegar.

We’re accepting new patients!

250-352-5012 Suite #201- 402 Baker St, Nelson

http://redcloverdental.net info@redcloverdental.net

The work of the RDI is

delivered through Selkirk

College’s Applied

Research & Innovation

Centre in Castlegar,

linking students and

faculty with community

partners to find

collaborative solutions

to social innovation

challenges. Applied

research aligns with

the college’s goal of

being a valued partner

in community

development, regional

collaboration, innovation

and rural capacity

building.

Accelerating progress to meet the demands

of a rapidly changing world depends on a new

willingness to innovate and collaborate across

sectors, disciplines, regions, and jurisdictions,

which inspired the conference theme of

“Bridging Silos.”

The event will highlight some of the latest

innovations and insights from and for small

communities. Drawing on expertise from

across the province and beyond, it’s an opportunity

to look closer at how rural regions are

seeking to increase their climate readiness

and to plan for low carbon resilience. The virtual

conference design will provide space for

networking and active participation to help

attendees build relationships

and learn from each other.

The Bridging Silos conference

welcomes participation

from local governments

and First Nations (staff and

elected officials), community

organizations, consulting

professionals, researchers,

students and interested members

of the general public.

The Selkirk College event

will be hosted in partnership

with the Planning Institute

Grants support

nature, public safety

and non-profits

New Democrat MLA Brittny Anderson says

community non-profits in Kaslo and Nelson

are getting a boost from nearly $240,000 in

funding, which will support their local work in

environmental conservation and public safety.

“Search and Rescue volunteers provide

critical support and aid to people who are in

distress. Enhanced training for SAR volunteers

helps to keep our community members

safe. The local environmental organizations

that are receiving this funding help to ensure

our precious Kootenay environment is

understood, protected and regenerated.” said

Anderson, “Supporting the work of these

organizations benefits everyone. I can’t thank

the organizations, their boards, staff and volunteers

enough for their work.”

Organizations in Nelson-Creston receiving

funding include:

• Kaslo Search and Rescue

• Nelson Search and Rescue Society

• West Kootenay EcoSociety

• Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society

• Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship

Society

• Kokanee Creek Nature Centre Society

This funding is part of more than $11 million

from BC’s Community Gaming Grant

program going to conservation and public

safety non-profits around the province. This

year, the province is providing approximately

$4.8 million to over 130 environment sector

organizations doing work in areas like environmental

education and wild animal rescue,

and $6.3

million to

over 130

public safety

organizations

to help

with their work providing emergency and

lifesaving services and more.

Community Gaming Grants provide

approximately $140 million each year in

funding to support nearly 5,000 not-forprofit

organizations that deliver services to

people throughout B.C. Learn more: https://

Open letter to health

care professionals

Dear friends and colleagues in healthcare,

Firstly, thank you for all you are doing

during this pandemic. As a nurse, I can appreciate

the increased workload and stress you

are experiencing and value immensely your

commitment to keeping the health care system

working during this challenging time.

I’m writing now, during COVID, because

scientists are reminding us that we face an

even larger crisis, that of climate change. The

World Health Organization stated that climate

change is the greatest threat to global health.

With that in mind, it made me wonder “What

can or should we be doing as healthcare providers?

Whether we like it or not, we will be

on the frontlines dealing with the health effects

of climate change. It’s time to integrate climate

action into our practices and use our influence

to change policy.

Scientists say we have 10 years to turn this

around. For me, the way to counter despair

and overwhelm around the immensity of the

problem is to get involved. I’ve found that integrating

purposeful work on climate change

into my daily life makes me hopeful. It helps

me to know that I am doing something for my

patients, my children, and grandchildren. It’s

inspired me to mobilize a network of healthcare

professionals in the Kootenays who are

interested in climate action.

You can have a tremendous impact, from

educating your patients to influencing policy

makers. We are the most trusted professionals

by the public. What we do and say is hugely

influential. If you are interested, I’m confident

you can find a way to get involved. By working

together, we can help shoulder this responsibility

for taking action for a healthy future. Please

join us in creating a network of healthcare professionals

for a healthy climate. For more information

ARCTIC OUTFLOW Claire Dibble

The culmination of an artist’s residency aboard a ship sailing in the Arctic

waters of Svalbard, “Arctic Outflow” reflects on the ways that humans are

embedded in even the most remote landscapes on Earth.

Using photo transfer images, bits of marine rubbish collected on shorelines,

and found rope Claire Dibble’s work expresses a commentary on consumerism,

acceptance, and seeking beauty in our current situation.

Photography, drawings, and direct experiences of local hikes and scenery.

Using a knife, brush, paint, and intuition, he is determined to capture the

magnificence, energy, and light held in the peaks and meadows he explores.

Please observe COVID protocols while visiting the galleries.

Masks are mandatory.
