A vision for public mental

health care

The time is now for public mental health

care. Our current public health care system

covers few mental health resources, and what

is covered is often too little, too late. It doesn’t

have to be this way.

In this second part of a mental health panel

series, the BC Health Coalition will bring

together key leaders in the area of mental

health to explore a vision for public mental

health care. We will spotlight community

based mental health programs that are paving

the way for providing accessible and publicly

funded mental health supports.

The webinar will be at noon on Nov 25,

2021. For more information and to register,

Patient advisory group

seeks new members

Are you interested in making health care

more patient and family-centred and equitable?

The Kootenay Boundary Patient Advisory

Committee & Community (PACC) may

be the group for you and it’s looking for new

members!

“Patients are central to conversations about

the health system, from the bedside to the

boardroom,” shares Mindy Smith, PACC

Chair. “Our members bring their experiences

as patients and citizens to provide

perspectives on important issues to health

care providers and policymakers in our

region. We want to increase our membership

to better represent the communities of

Kootenay Boundary, both geographical and

identity-based.”

The PACC provides input into decisions

related to the Kootenay Boundary Collaborative

Services Committee (CSC), a group of

health care leaders, providers & coordinators,

and Aboriginal and patient partners. The CSC

is tasked with advancing primary health care

through enhanced team-based care in acute,

residential, and community care settings.

Dr. Shelina Musaji, local physician and

CSC Co-Chair, shares “patients have been

instrumental in the design and implementation

of the Primary Care Network (PCN),

and this has contributed to its early success.

The CSC works well as a group and we value

our collaboration with patient partners. Their

voices are important to ensure that patients

are well-represented in all our discussions

about health care in the Kootenay Boundary.”

Suzanne Lee, Co-Chair of the CSC and

Director, Clinical Operations Boundary &

Kootenay Boundary Primary Care Lead with

Interior Health echoes this view. “We must

bring the patient voice to the forefront of our

work if we are to transform our current system

of care into a patient and family-centred

system that represents the people we serve

and provides the best possible outcomes. We

must listen to the patient experience to make

the decisions that will transform health care.”

The Kootenay Boundary Patient Advisory

Committee & Community is warmly inviting

residents to explore their new website at

https://kbpacc.ca to learn more about their

work and how to get involved. For more

information, please reach out to pacc@divisionsbc.ca

or call 604.373.9466.

“If you could say it in words, there would

be no reason to paint”-Edward Hopper

Creativity and curiosity go hand in hand

to pave the way toward greater intelligence

and personal expression. The brain’s elasticity

strengthens and expands when people are

curious and seek different experiences.

A way to foster both creativity and curiosity

is through art education. Different art forms

push students to take up the challenge of

creating personal works of art. Students forget

their concerns as their thoughts become

focused on the journey of a creative activity.

Their innate curiosity to try new things, make

new projects, and learn new art forms ignites

their creativity.

The process of creating art expresses ideas,

information, and dreams. Art builds a sense

of self, self-esteem, and the well-deserved

feeling of pride in creating a personal piece of

artwork. “You get what you give…except with

art you always get so much more,” says Shauna

Davis, the Seven Summits Centre for Learning

Art Education teacher. “Art is an activity

that allows students to learn through discovery

and to display their personal creativity.”

Students do this by slowing down and taking

time to

observe.

Participating

in the

process of

making art

encourages

students

to look at

the world

differently

as they discover

hidden

talents

and newfound

abilities.

Davis

particularly

likes the clay

project her

art students

completed.

“I like to

begin with

artwork

students

are going to

be good at

because it

builds interest

and confidence,”

she

says.

Photo Credit- Shauna Davis

Davis describes her class workshop as a

secure place for students to express themselves.

This leads to optimism as students

spread the message that it is fun making

things. “Art is not out of reach whether a

student believes, or has been told, that they

are good at it or not,” says Davis. She adds, “I

firmly believe that art is for everyone.”

Everyone has art-making skills as they are

transferable from the other areas of their

lives. For example, Davis explains that the

fine motor skills start from infancy and continue

to develop when students learn cursive

writing. As children learn to link letters with

pencil to paper, the more neatly the child tries

to write, the more they sharpen their future

drawing skills. It is just a matter of connecting

these familiar skills to the techniques of

art that they may have never tried before.

Davis’s greatest joy is when students come

in with a negative idea about art, and from

the instructed activities, they begin to see that

they too can make amazing artwork pieces.

“Students are often rushing to get through

the project, and I like to give them extra help

to conceptualize possibilities, get them to do

more with each project as I always leave room

for improvement by meeting them where

they are at and nudging them to experience

more. After all, art is just a bunch of teachable

skills that with curiosity and time, everyone

can learn to take part in creating individual

works of art,” says Davis. “Being a teacher,

workshop instructor, and photographer

allows me to meet people that I otherwise

wouldn’t meet, and help people to learn art

which gives me a greater appreciation for my

artistic path in life.”

Getting students more involved in visual

arts starts with exposure, interesting options,

engagement, and time. “I make it my goal to get

the students to work with various types of art

material in class,” she says. “They really enjoy

the different paths art can take them.” Currently,

Seven Summits students attend art workshops

throughout the entire year. This immersion in

the arts allows for students to gain from the

many benefits that result from curiosity, creativity,

and, of course, art exposure.

Two art exhibits in the Langham

Come on in to Kaslo’s Langham galleries where we currently

have two excellent art exhibits reflecting two very different

styles, media and content.

In the Main Gallery we have an arresting and deeply affecting

show from Tl’azt’en artist Damian John. Indian Agency

uses the approachable medium of the comic book to explore

the traumatic and difficult story of Indigenous peoples and

the Indian Act. While this is a story of grief and pain, there is

also growth, hope, and ultimately, resiliency.

John says of the exhibit, “What if I reworked the images

in comic book cover art to address some of the complicated,

unusual, and deeply disturbing aspects of the Indian act and

the treatment of indigenous people in Canada? If I mimicked

the cover art closely, would it hold some power in explaining

CHRISTMAS

comes early

at Kaslo ACE!

both the ethereal nature and the very real impact of the story

that is our history? How different would life be if we did things

another way?”

John will be offering an artist talk on his compelling exhibit

ES:MO comes to the Langham

With over a dozen JUNO nominations between them, Elizabeth

Sheppard and Michael Occhipinti have been exceptional musical

creatives on the Montreal & Toronto Jazz/Folk scenes for decades.

Their new project ES:MO mixes both original composition and

iconic Canadian songs arranged for Occhipinti’s slick eclectic guitar

stylings and Sheppard’s warm unique voice & adventurous keyboard

compositions.

Occhipinti has been called a guitar chameleon for his ability to

work with many colours in different genres, while Shepherd’s velvety

voice and soulful piano compositions also resist easy labeling.

Together they create a magical and compelling world of sound that

can have an audience holding it’s breathe one moment, and moving

in rhythm the next.

ES:MO are touring across Canada with their latest album The

Weight of Hope, which includes songs by Canadian legends Leonard

Cohen, Bruce Cockburn, and Gordon Lightfoot, as well as forgotten

Toronto soul legend Jackie Shane. Don’t miss this night of

wonderful music Live in the Langham Theatre Thursday November

25 at 7pm. Tickets $20 at Sunnyside or Willow in Kaslo.

Mandates affect us all

Nobel Prize winning peacemaker Desmund

Tutu, teaches that “Freedom is Indivisible”.

We are in a very challenging time. Not

taking a side and standing for unity is more

important than ever. Divisions are established

and people on both sides have much evidence

that they are right. There is a steady stream

of information and misinformation, leading

citizens on both sides to boycott or harass or

support specific establishments, service providers

and individuals. This righteousness

and the fear surrounding it could prove to

be as dangerous as the virus or the vaccine,

depending on your stance.

History has many examples of how, even

with good intentions, we can be convinced

to do horrible things to those identified as

“other”. Many people are now aware of the

impacts of intergenerational trauma; how

harm done to human beings can be passed

down for generations. What we do today and

how we treat each other matters.

If in fact we are all connected, it means

when some community members are suffering

we are all impacted. The beginning of

the pandemic inspired much support and

kindness in our community. We were all in

it together. Since the passports and mandates

have been imposed, we are separated, even

influenced to dissolve once loving relationships.

Many professionals: doctors, nurses,

teachers, police officers, who were admired

and appreciated last week are now disposable.

When both sides think they have the answer

and are righteously holding their side of the

argument we completely lose the bigger

picture.

So what is the bigger picture?

Currently 85.7% of BC is fully vaccinated;

yet the health officials continue to pressure

the province for a 100% vaccination rate.

Qualified workers, who serve

the public, signed contracts

that did not include a vaccine

requirement, are now unilaterally,

being put on leaves of

absences without pay with the

threat of being terminated. They

are not being given severance

or unemployment insurance.

Nor is consideration for medical

exemptions or acquired immunity

through recovering from

COVID 19 even being acknowledged.

Other effective safety

measures are also not being allowed. We are

told that mandates and vaccination alone are

the only way to fulfill our social contract to

care for each other and stop the spread of the

virus.

We have to ask is this fair, logical, moral or

even legal? How many local businesses will

close leading us to a recession and potential

depression? Will our former colleagues

become homeless when they can’t pay their

rent or mortgage? Will they need to use the

food bank to feed their children? How many

of us have the privilege to be able survive

beyond a couple of months without income?

Are these mandates justified for public

safety when the vaccination rates are so high

or is our government behaving unreasonably

and irresponsibly? If an 85% vaccination rate

isn’t doing the job, will a 100% rate do it?

It is the BC government who made the

decision, not the unvaccinated, to underfund

the healthcare system in our area for decades

and now it’s poised to stress it even further

by forcing understaffing in the middle of a

pandemic. This will and already has affected

those with chronic illness and those in need

of surgery. If a recent experience in the Kaslo

area is any indication, where after calling 911,

the caller was put on hold for 20 minutes

before they were able to talk to an ambulance

dispatcher, our safety is being seriously compromised.

Would you prefer a paramedic or

nurse with a health status different than yours

or have no help at all when your loved one

needs immediate medical attention?

Government enforcement of mandates has

and will increase unemployment numbers

and numbers of people living in poverty, as

they let go of a thousand health care workers

in Interior Health followed by other essential

workers and public servants. This will

have a profound impact on our economy and

disrupt services including the food supply

chains. Inflation is already happening. If we

don’t unify, all of us are partially responsible

for businesses closing, foreclosures on homes,

bankruptcies, and increased mental health

distress including: depression, suicide, addiction,

domestic violence for adults and children

alike. Is it possible that the government

is creating an unnecessary crisis?

With Remembrance Day just last week, let’s

use this opportunity to learn from history,

unite and preserve our services, our relationships

and our community. Unifying is a

logical choice, a compassionate choice. We

have the chance to get this right. Let’s work

together to find the answers to keep us all safe

and thriving as a community.

Trail and Beaver Valley

residents

The City of Trail and the Regional District

of Kootenay Boundary Beaver Valley Regional

Parks and Regional Trails Service (BVPARTS)

are pleased to announce they have successfully

negotiated and approved a 5-year (60 months)

recreation services agreement. The reciprocal

agreement permits residents in the Beaver

Valley (Montrose and Fruitvale) and Electoral

Area A to access the city’s recreational facilities

and programs at the reduced Trail Resident

Program fee and allows City of Trail residents

to access all Beaver Valley recreational facilities

and programs.

All City of Trail recreational facilities, services,

and programs are covered in the agreement,

including the Trail Aquatic & Leisure

Centre, the Trail Memorial Centre, and the

Willi Krause Fieldhouse. “We all benefit when

we work together as neighbours. This agreement

allows all Beaver Valley and Area A

residents to continue to enjoy access to high

quality recreation facilities and programming.

Children can learn to swim year-round and

our communities can take advantage of the

excellent recreation opportunities available. I

encourage everyone to stay active this winter

Regional Trails committee chair.City of Trail

Snow removal in Trail

Trail has 76 kilometers (152 lane kilometers)

of roads to maintain and has 14 pieces of equipment

including loaders, sand spreaders, snow

plows, and a grader. From mid-November to

March, the city has at least one employee on duty

24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The number of

employees involved in snow removal is dependent

on the amount and duration of snowfall.

Snow Removal Priorities

City streets are maintained on a priority basis

as follows:

#1 Priority - Major collectors and emergency

routes, i.e. Hospital Hill, Warfield Hill Road

(from Warfield Teck Operations to Highway 22),

Fifth Avenue Hill, and hills with extreme gradients

and significant volume, i.e. Green Avenue.

#2 Priority - Bus routes.

#3 Priority - Downtown core, including

downtown parking lots and the Trail & Leisure

Aquatic Centre.

#4 Priority - Hills with lighter traffic volumes,

i.e. Lilac Crescent, Park Street.

#5 Priority - All remaining residential streets

and parking lots.

When all 5 priorities have been accomplished,

lanes will be plowed and all other streets will be

widened.

Afterschool care coming

to Winlaw

Winlaw Elementary School will be supporting

their youngest learners and families with

the Seamless Day Kindergarten pilot program,

slated to begin providing after-school

care services this coming January, 2022.

The new childcare, Kindergarten and support

services facility has been supported by

the Ministry of Education and Columbia

Basin Trust and is part of the government’s

10-year Childcare BC plan, as the province

works to build an inclusive universal childcare

system that meets growing childcare

needs in BC communities.

The childcare pilot program at Winlaw Elementary

will launch in the new year,offering

space for 12 students and will be limited to

after-school care only at this time. Winlaw

students, aged Kindergarten to Grade 5, are

eligible to apply and parents are encouraged

to contact the school principal, Monica

Doyle, at monica.doyle@sd8.bc.ca

“Our participation in this pilot will improve

access to after school care that parents genuinely

need in our district,” said Superintendent

Trish Smillie. “It is an example of a

community coming together to support our

youngest learners. I am looking forward to

how this program will provide the ability for

busy parents to get to work and knowing their

children are cared for and learning.”

The Kootenay Lake Board of Education will

continue to work with parents, the Ministry

of Education, and municipal governments to

be innovative about how to create supportive

environments for early learners.

It’s cold out there

The Coldest Night of the Year is a

covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise

money for charities serving people experiencing

homelessness, hurt, and hunger.

Walk with the Nelson CARES family

of supporters virtually or in-person on

February 26, 2022 there’s a place for

everyone!

At Nelson CARES we reach out to

support the most vulnerable people in

the community. One of our goals is the

preservation, maintenance and development

of affordable housing in Nelson,

British Columbia. The focus of the last

three CNOY walks was the refurbishment

of our downtown affordable housing

building, Ward Street Place. This

year the funding focus shifts to support

individuals.

Our Ready For Home program provides

supports to homeless individuals

ready for housing, individuals newly

housed and those at risk of losing their

housing. At the core of Ready For Home

is a paid staff member who works oneon-one

with individuals to find housing,

to transition into affordable housing

and to sustain them in their existing

accommodation.

At Nelson CARES respect for every

individual is an ordinary everyday occurrence.

Please join us and show your

respect to all individuals in our wonderful

community.

Action on old-growth

Today I am writing with an update on historic

new action to better care for BC’s old

growth forests.

First of all, I want to thank everyone that

took the time to communicate with me, my

team, and shared their thoughts on Old

Growth. It helps to inform my work on your

behalf, and your engagement is crucial to

our democracy.

I know many of you are celebrating the

news of the deferrals however it is important

to also recognize that some families are

terrified about job loss. Our government is

going to be working closely with communities,

workers and companies impacted

by the announcement to ensure people are

supported.

Over the summer, our government

worked closely with independent experts on

the Old Growth Technical Advisory Panel

to identify the most at-risk old growth forests

in the province. The areas proposed for

these deferrals include all 900,000 hectares

of the area identified by the expert panel as

“Ancient” and “Remnant” forests. These are

the oldest and rarest forests in the province.

Our commitment to reconciliation is at

the forefront of this process. The days of

making unilateral decisions without First

Nations rights and title holders are over. Our

intention is to move forward on deferrals as

quickly as we can while respecting our commitment

to work with rights and title holders

on important decisions like this.

Let’s be clear: our work on old growth isn’t

done. These deferrals align with recommendations

of the Old Growth Strategic Review

panel and give us time to engage with First

Nations, communities, workers, and industry

to build a plan to take care of all our

forests.

We’re implementing a long-term vision

that protects old growth while ensuring

workers and communities benefit from

secure and innovative forest jobs for generations

to come. We’re supporting workers

and communities with a comprehensive

package including employment opportunities,

education and training options, or

funds to bridge to retirement.

Our forests make BC an incredible place

to live. We owe it to our children and grandchildren

to better care for our old growth

forests. Thank you for your interest in protecting

them.

As always, if you have any questions or

concerns about COVID-19 or any other

provincial issue, please don’t hesitate to

reach out. We are here to help you. My office

can be reached at 1-887-388-4498 or Brittny.Anderson.MLA@leg.bc.ca.

In Your Service, Brittny Anderson
