SIFCo’s latest film

release

‘Living with Fire’

The Slocan Integral Forestry Cooperative

(SIFCo) is releasing a film that looks at current

and future threats from wildfire in the

Slocan Valley.

This educational film provides adaptive

action steps residents can take to be prepared

for this dynamic threat by reducing

the wildfire risk on their properties. The

project was partially funded by the Columbia

Basin Trust and the ‘Community Resiliency

Investment Program’ administered by

the Union of BC Municipalities.

The film is part of the educational component

of the Slocan Valley Wildfire Resiliency

Program being delivered by SIFCo on

behalf of the Villages of Slocan, Silverton,

and New Denver. The vision of the program

is to help create fire-adapted communities

that are knowledgeable and engaged, where

residents and agencies take action regarding

infrastructure, buildings, landscaping, and

surrounding ecosystems, thereby enabling

communities to safely accept fire as a natural

part of this bioregion.

Creating fire-adapted communities has

never been more important with wildfires

increasing with intensity and frequency

fueled by a changing climate that is making

weather patterns less predictable and

more extreme. This is due to a culmination

of hotter summers, longer drought periods,

and changing winter weather patterns, combined

with decades of wildfire suppression.

In addition to the increased threat from

wildfire, the population

is also

growing in rural

fire-prone areas

where the wildland

meets infrastructure

and

homes. The combination

of these

factors in the Slocan

Valley creates

the potential for a

wildfire disaster

to occur.

To mitigate and

prepare for wildfire

SIFCo has

been implementing

a Strategic

Landscape Level

Wildfire Protection

Plan for the

Slocan Valley for

the past 12 years.

This plan involves

fuel treatment

in areas identified as main fire movement

corridors throughout the Slocan Valley. The

plan utilizes five different treatment types,

including the thinning of second-growth

trees to reduce fuel loads and latter fuels,

and the re-introduction of prescribed burns

in historically fire-maintained ecosystems.

“Individuals,

in the

end, are

the most

important

part of the

whole pyramid,

their

us. What

individuals

choose to

do governs

whether

or not we

get to a fire

resilient

place in our

communities,

in our

local areas,

and around

our own

homes.

Individual

action,

individual

empowerment,

and

individual

choices are

what’s vital

to this whole

program.”

Nelson Farmers Market

is back

To better serve our community and to

allow for variety, the Wednesday Nelson

Farmers Market operating hours have been

extended. The Wednesday location, like the

Saturday Market, will remain at Cottonwood

Falls Park, 199 Carbonate Street and be open

between noon and 6 pm. We have an amazing

line-up of vendors who are sure to please all

or market visitors.

Farm produce, bakers, artisans, community

spirit, and much more are all that make

the Nelson Farmers Market the heart of our

community. Our goal is to provide a market

that allows community members to access

healthy food and support the direct interactions

between farmers and consumers. The

Nelson Farmers Market operations are a

means of the City of Nelson’s goal to promote

and support local food sustainability.

In-light of COVID-19, we have established

guidelines and protocols that support

the direction and guidance of our provincial

health officials and the federal government.

There will be a mandatory hand sanitizing

station at the entrance. Delineators will guide

all patrons to ease the flow of traffic.

City of Nelson

Salmo: Canada Day

celebrations cancelled

The Village of Salmo Council has made the

very tough decision to cancel the Salmo Canada

Days Celebrations again for the 2021 year.

Considering the current state of COVID-19

and since celebration planning must start

soon, the council decided that it is not safe to

New mural to lift spirits

at Trail hospital

The Kootenay Boundary

Physicians Association

(KBPA) has commissioned a

massive mural to be painted

on the north and west wall at

Kootenay Boundary Regional

Hospital (KBRH) Trail by

local Kootenay muralist Tyler

Toews of Canadian Murals.

The idea, which grew from the

positive energy of last year’s

Gratitude Garden installation,

will flourish throughout May

2021 on the hospital’s back

entrance.

Initially, Dr. Sue Benzer,

KBRH Chief of Staff, inspired

by the smiles the Gratitude

Garden project at the back

entrance brought to staff, proposed

a smaller mural to go

behind the garden. When Dr.

Sue Babensee (project lead),

the KBPA working group and

board explored options, the

idea expanded into a 21m

x 16m 3-D commission for

Toews.

Known for his passion

about nature, Toews’ colourful

murals can be seen on Nelson

City Hall, the Rossland

Cenotaph, and the BC Children’s

Hospital. KBdoctors.ca

are keen to share the progress

of this exciting, one-of-a-kind

project. They will record and

post the mural’s development

up the wall with a weekly

video posted every Friday

www.facebook.com/kbdoctors.ca

“The proposed mural is a

colourful, anamorphic design

that will create an optical illusion

as it interacts with the

architecture of the building.

Featuring a large red ribbon

that forms a heart of gratitude,

the completed painting

will transcend the boundaries

of spatial design and perception,”

said Toews.

KBPA physicians teamed

up to work out an inspired

mural mission. “We wanted to

give everyone associated with

the hospital and in the community

a visual that would

lift their spirits,” said Dr.

Babensee, “We felt this was so

important as we all work our

way through the pandemic

and other health challenges

together. It will hopefully be

both a reflection of what we’ve

achieved and motivate us to

move forward.”

Ruth Kohut, KBRH Director

of Clinical Operations,

gathered full support from

Interior Health (IH) for this

exciting art

adventure.

“Art is what

grounds us all

individually

as it reminds

us to stop,

reflect, and

feel inspired,”

Kohut said.

“Art also

enables connections

with

others by

sharing stories

about

the world we

live in, our

culture, our

communities.”

KBPA is proud to have this

project which will reflect its

community commitments

and connections. The mural’s

design, to be unveiled virtually

as it progresses through

May, will mirror the growth

spring offers. The mural will

give staff, visitors, and the

community a memorable

image to take with them.

BENTON R DAVIE

March 21, 1991 April 25, 2021

My name is Benton Davie. I chose to make the north

my home about 10 years ago as a young man who

did not know what he was looking for, much like my

maternal grandfather many years before me! The north

is famous for its hospitality and it did not fail me. I was

instantly hooked by the rugged winters, endless summer

days, strong sense of community, friends I made and

mainly and unexpectedly, the aviation industry so vital

to my new city.

I was hired by Great Slave Helicopter and I knew almost

immediately that this was something I could turn into

a lifelong career. I transferred into the apprenticeship

program to begin working towards becoming a licensed

Air Craft Maintenance Engineer. I enrolled at Red River

College, Stevenson campus and was accepted into their AME

apprentice program. Over the next four years I

worked towards this goal, and continued to enjoy

travelling and working all over both the

Northwest Territories and Nunavut. I have done

well academically and am proud of my achievements.

I plan to work in Yellowknife as I feel it provides scenarios

and opportunities you can find nowhere else in

the world. I of course, do not know what the future

holds but I know mine will involve helicopters and

Yellowknife.

(an excerpt from applications and poem by Ben Davie)

THE HOPE

The Cold

it was never ending as if being restocked

by God himself,

it numbed his extremities and froze his lungs,

it commanded the Arctic floor into a steady

mass of lifeless permafrost,

It was death.

The Snow

it tasted him and wanting more

clung to his naked face,

each flake was so beautiful so unique, so worthless,

it attacked without mercy

possessed by wind and hatred.

It was death.

The Sun

it applied rays of light praying they would

reach the fragile trees that blemished the tundra,

it was the colds, the snows only enemy

as it battled to warm him, it had been shining

without a flicker for over two days,

It was hope.

As you can see,

Benton was happy with his choices and

took opportunities to work with biologists

and contribute to the research part of his

tours. He met friends he loved, colleagues he

respected, and joined a community he felt a

part of.

On April 25, 2021 Benton and two others

were flying in the Eastern Arctic in an

Airbus AS350-B2 when a problem

occurred and the helicopter went down.

There were no survivors.

Ben was 30 years old.

Jeff, Monica (Richinger), Spencer and Jo, our

family and friends, know that you share our

grief and are very thankful for your support.

Be gentle with each other as we all move

forward in our new reality without our

beloved son, brother, cousin, nephew,

grandson and friend.

Gardening is beneficial in various

ways. Some of the health perks associated

with gardening include

improved mood, increased vitamin

D levels (which benefits bones and

immune system) and reduced risk

of dementia. In addition, if gardening

efforts

include

g r o w i n g

herbs,

fruits and

vegetables,

it can be a

cost-effective

way to

eat healthy.

For others,

container

gardening

in particular,

feeds a creative streak, becuase

really you can plant just about anything!

For gardeners without sufficient

space or for those with

mobility issues, container

gardening can be an

ideal way to grow everything

from flowers to

vegetables. Most plants

are not fussy about the

containers in which they

grow so long as some

of their basic needs are

met. This means watering

correctly for the type

of plant, and ensuring

sufficient drainage.

The following are some

other ways container gardening

efforts can prove

successful.

• Watch water. Plants with thin

leaves typically need ample water,

and plants with thick leaves need

less. Use this as a guideline to gauge

water needs.

• Size correctly. Plants should be

sized to the container. Consider

dwarf varieties of

certain plants if your

containers are small.

• Choose the right

soil. Fill containers

with a commercial

potting soil rather

than soil from the

garden. Garden soil

can dry into a solid

mass, while commercial

mixtures

have amendments

like peat moss, vermiculite,

compost,

and other ingredients

to help with soil

texture and moisture retention.

• Mix it up. When planting containers

of flowers and other greenery,

include “a thriller, a spiller and a

filler” as a good rule of thumb. The

thriller is the focal point, the spiller a

trailing plant, and a filler has smaller

leaves or flowers to add bulk and

colour.

• Poke holes. Drainage holes are essential

so that soil will not become

waterlogged. Holes don’t need to be

large, but there should be enough of

them so that excess water can drain

out readily.

• Select the right container material.

Container materials may be affected

by gardeners’ budgets, personal taste

and other factors.

Container gardening is a healthy

and enjoyable activity that can pay

dividends in various ways.

Building activity in the RDCK

Building activity in the Regional

District of Central Kootenay

(RDCK) remains at record levels

as we pass the first quarter of

2021. Through the end of March,

inspections completed by building

officials are up 50% over last year at

this time and permits issued are up

46% over this time last year as well.

Throughout this high growth

period, our small pool of dedicated

RDCK building officials, as well

as, administrative and technical

support staff continue to provide

prompt, quality and professional

building services to the community,

despite working with limited

staff resources and a high volume

of work. Current processing time

for building permits is approximately

six weeks, though processing

times can be longer as staff are

now spending more time in the

field completing inspections and

less time in the office.

“We appreciate your patience

and understanding during this

extremely busy time,” said Christopher

Gainham, RDCK building

manager. “We recommend

all potential applicants prepare

accordingly for extended processing

times as we deal with unprecedented

demand.”

To reduce the likelihood that an

application is rejected or delayed,

applicants should ensure they come

prepared with a “counter ready

application”, meaning the application

is complete and free from

errors or omissions. By doing so,

you will help reduce processing

time and do your part to make sure

your project stays on schedule.

To assist applicants in navigating

the building process, the RDCK

has produced some useful online

resources, including our permit

application information page. The

RDCK Building Brochure provides

useful guidance on the requirements

when applying for a building

permit.

To find these online resources

and more general information,

go to the RDCK website: rdck.ca.

Building Services is the menu at the

top of the list when you click on the

SERVICES tab on the RDCK home

page.

Pride exhibition: call for content

In 2016, Justin Trudeau became the

first Prime Minister to walk in a Pride

Parade, and subsequently broke the

internet from Victoria to St. Johns. That

same year, Nelson held its 20th annual

Pride Parade, where hundreds of people

gathered on Baker Street, and MLA

Michelle Mungall tossed candy to facepainted,

flag-flying children.

Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art

and History, in partnership with Kootenay

Pride and the Queer community,

are mounting an historical exhibition

on the legacy of LGBTQ2S+ folks in the

Kootenays this summer, and are reaching

out to the community for stories,

photos and artifacts to include in the

show.

“In an effort to ensure that a multitude

of voices are included and as many

stories and perspectives are represented,

the exhibition working group is putting

a callout for people who may have been

involved with Kootenay Pride over

the years or who are part of queer history

in the area to reach out and share

your stories, photos, videos, costumes,

and ephemera,” explains Touchstones

Nelson’s Public Program Coordinator

Stephanie Myers.

The exhibition will explore the

celebrations and

the challenges

facing the local

Pride movement

throughout the

last 50 years,

and highlight

the considerable

contribution the

queer community

has made to

the region.

The exhibit will include a film created

by Watershed Productions, which will

highlight the LGBTQ2S+ community

over the decades.

This short documentary

will use

archival materials

in the collection at

the Shawn Lamb

Archives, as well

as materials provided

by the larger

community.

“The stories of

our queer history

in the Kootenays

remain largely

untold,” says Amy

Bohigian, Director

at Watershed

The Pride Parade down Baker Street, 2017.

Courtesy of Kootenay Pride

Productions. “It’s time

to create a legacy piece

that examines and celebrates

how we arrived

to a such a robust community

today.”

Stories can be submitted

to Museum

Curator Arin Fay

at curator@touchstonesnelson.ca

or

250-352-9813. The

deadline for submissions is

June 15, and can be submitted

anonymously if desired.

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.

Bringing the pictures into focus

Dealing with Covid has

brought changes for the West

Kootenay Camera Club. Last

year the 30th Anniversary

Photo Competition Show was

cancelled.

WKCC president Bob Dyke

decided that 2020 would not

stop the club. It was a time for

reflection and updating the

WKCC.

Zoom meetings were held twice a month.

The WKCC teamed up with other camera

clubs in BC and the Yukon for educational

webinars. Speakers shared their tips and

advice on different types of photography. Also

various members of the WKCC shared their

knowledge and the club continued its mandate

of education.

One change was the update on

the WKCC website.

Dan Salekin and a

small group of volunteers

reviewed the old

website and decided to

bring it into the 2020s.

The new website will be

up and running soon.

WKCC is open to all

who love photography

and want to improve

the quality of their photographs. Membership

is $30 for an individual, $50 for a family. For

more information contact wkccpresident@

gmail.com West Kootenay Camera Club

Assistant Deputy Minister

honours Murray Pearson

Hello everyone,

On behalf of the South Area Leadership Team, I am pleased to

announce the winner of the 2020 Rodger Stewart Legacy Award.

As I am sure you are aware, the Rodger Stewart Legacy Award is

given to a member of the FLNRORD team who exemplifies an

indomitable spirit, a commitment to public service, and a dedication

to their work, their co-workers and their community.

This year, I received many great nominations from staff, wishing

to honour a special colleague with this award. Although the

final decision was challenging to make, I thoroughly enjoyed

reading all the submissions (very heartwarming!). I am proud

to work in the South Area with the people who were nominated.

I want to say thank you to those who made a nomination, the

sheer number was amazing!

The recipient of the 2020 Rodger Stewart Legacy Award is

Murray Pearson. Sadly, this is a post-humous award dedication,

as Murray passed away in August of 2020. There were many

nominations for Murray, and all of them highlighted not only

his passion for his work as Fisheries Technician and caretaker

at Meadow Creek, but also some of his work in the community

of Kaslo, as a hockey and baseball coach, for example. For his

unwavering support for his colleagues and his community, his

loss left a hole that will be hard to fill.

Although Murray had a very different leadership style than

Rodger, he was very much a leader. Murray had a willingness

and desire to go above and beyond the call of public service, and

for these reasons, I am honoured to present this award to Murray.

I know that his colleagues will likely hang the award with

pride (in the Nelson office), in fond remembrance of Murray.

Please join me in taking a moment to honour Murray Pearson,

winner of the 2020 Rodger Stewart Legacy Award.

Mt Sentinel

student named

Loran Scholar

Grade 12 Mount Sentinel

Secondary student, Tala

MacDonald, is one of the 30

exceptional young Canadians

who has been selected from a

pool of 6,084 applicants to be

named a 2021 Loran Scholar

this spring.

Each year, the Loran Scholars

Foundation conducts a

nationwide, comprehensive

scholarship selection process,

seeking applicants who

demonstrate a firm commitment

to character, service

and leadership potential;

breadth in academic and

extra-curricular interests;

integrity; and a high level of

personal autonomy.

In this time of immense

change and challenge, the

newly selected scholars

have shown grit and resilience,

finding ways to make

the most of these extraordinary

circumstances and

meaningfully serve their

communities.

When it comes to serving

one’s community, Tala’s

strength of character and

commitment to helping others

is nothing short of exemplary.

She demonstrates this

as a volunteer firefighter and

medical first responder in her

community, as a team leader

for environmental initiatives

at her school, and through

her involvement in an international

service and intercultural

learning project, where

she helped build homes in

Oaxaca, Mexico for impoverished

families.

Tala was

first encouraged

to

apply for the

Loran Scholarship

in the

fall by her

school counsellor,

and

the strength

of her application

led

her through

both the

semi-final

and final

selection

process. “I

went into the

interview

nervous and not knowing

really what to expect,” said

Tala, “But it was so incredible

to be able to connect with

alumni and other candidates

from across the country, and

to hear their experiences.”

The Loran Award is

Canada’s largest and most

comprehensive four-year

undergraduate award. What

makes this award unique is

that it is not a

reward for past

accomplishments,

but an

investment in a

potential future

path of high

impact. Loran

poses a lifelong

challenge to its

scholars to live

outstanding

lives of character

and take

on significant

leadership roles,

which will positively impact

their communities, Canada,

and the world around us.

Tala accounts growing up

in a tight knit community

and being raised with the

mindset to help others for

her desire to make a difference.

“I look at the issues of

the world, and it can be overwhelming,

but I believe I can

make a positive change by

helping others” said Tala.

Through a creative lens,

Tala’s passion for the arts,

both visual and performing,

has also influenced her ability

to have an impact both in

and out of school. “She’s an

outstanding kid,” exclaims

Danny Leeming, Academy

PM (Performance & Media)

teacher. “Tala’s contribution

to our program over the past

three years has been exceptional.”

Tala is also an active

member of an extracurricular

theatre group and was

recently the lead contributor

for a collaborative production

focused on truth and

reconciliation.

Loran Scholars receive a

renewable four-year award

comprising an annual living

stipend and matching tuition

waiver from one of the foundation’s

25 partner universities;

funding for tri-sectoral

summer work experiences

(in enterprise, public policy,

and community development);

one-on-one mentorship;

and the opportunity to

connect with other high-potential

youth through forums

and scholar gatherings. Following

their undergraduate

studies, Loran Scholars are

welcomed into an engaged

alumni community, in which

former scholars connect and

collaborate through regional

hubs and larger reunion

events.

Congratulations Tala!
