SOS The SS Moyie

needs your help!

On October 22, 2021 the SS

Moyie a National Historic Site

and the oldest intact passenger

sternwheeler in the world was 123

years old. Because of her age she is

in urgent need of major repairs to

her roofs and decking. Launched at

the Nelson Shipyard in 1898, these

sternwheelers were expected to last

about 25 years and the Moyie served

for almost 60. When she retired in

1957, she was sold to Kaslo for $1

by the CPR and the next year was

winched out of the water and began

her new career as a museum with

the Kootenay Lake Historical Society

(KLHS) as her custodian.

Like any house, her roofs need

regular repair and last winter, sagging

and leaking occurred, threatening

the interior of the ship. The

sagging has been corrected and

reinforced, but now the critical job

of replacing the canvas and decking

is needed. This is where we need

your help!

The KLHS has sought funding

from various agencies but we are

required to match some of this.

Removing the canvas, repairing

any damaged wood, replacing and

painting the canvas will require

scaffolding to be set up around

the ship. A team of workers will

be trained on site to do the repair

work. With the scaffolding in place,

the exterior of the ship will be

painted, so she will look almost as

good as new ready to celebrate her

125th birthday in 2023!

We are grateful to the commitment

of funding from Columbia

Basin Trust, Community Economic

Resiliency Infrastructure Program

(CERIP) and the Village of Kaslo

and funds from other federal and

provincial sources are pending.

KLHS now needs to raise $100,000

towards this work and already has

$83,000. Can you help raise the

other $17,000?

Please send donations to Kootenay

Lake Historical Society, PO Box

537, Kaslo, BC V0G 1M0, or via the

donate button on our website www.

klhs.bc.ca. Official tax receipts will

be provided on request for donations

over $20.

Kootenay Lake Historical Society

Our goal

is now

$100,000

We’ve raised

$83,000 but now

urgently need to

raise an additional

$17,000 to repair

the roofs and

decking of the ship.

We cannot do it

without you!

Slocan Valley celebrates

Giving Tuesday

What is Giving Tuesday? Imagine a day dedicated to giving

back, around the world, across Canada, and in your own community.

Just as “Black Friday” kicks off the holiday shopping

season, Giving Tuesday is the opening day of the giving season.

It’s a global day of giving, a time to celebrate and encourage

activities that support charities and non-profits. Whether

it’s making a donation, volunteering time, helping a neighbour

or spreading the word, Giving Tuesday is a movement for

everyone who wants to give something back.

It’s when we hope you will make a donation to the Slocan

Valley Legacy Fund. This is our annual appeal for support

through one-time gifts, monthly pledges, or donations made

in memory or in honour of someone special. You can donate

through our website at www.slocanvalleylegacy.com, or mail

us a cheque, details online. However you choose to give, you

will receive a tax receipt for donations over $20. Help us celebrate

our 10th anniversary we have been supporting local

groups since 2011!

Campbell Field options

The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is inviting

community feedback on two options for the reimagination

of Campbell Field at the Playmor Junction. The options are

high-level concepts, developed based on input from the community

through a survey campaign in the fall of 2020. While

the two options are similar, Option 1 has a greater focus on the

indoor elements, and Option 2 has a greater focus on outdoor

elements.

The two options, along with background information and

inspirational photos, are being presented on panels for the

community to review. After viewing the panels and the two

options, people can provide their feedback via an online or

print form. Key community groups and stakeholders will also

be invited to provide feedback on the concepts.

The panels can be viewed at the following locations during

regular open hours:

Expect higher traffic on Hwy.#3

The province is expected to announce that truck and other

traffic between the lower mainland and Alberta will be temporarily

diverted via Highway #3 while road repairs are effected

along the TransCanada Highway. Salmo may see a significant

increase in traffic due to this diversion. Some of these truckers

have never been through Highway 3, never mind over the

Kootenay Pass, so please keep in mind that we should be both

patient and vigilant while giving them lots of space when sharing

the highway with them.

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!

November fishing report

Kootenay Lake:

The water temperature is perfect

and the fish are biting. Our temps have

dropped to low 50s which has brought

most fish to the surface. We have had

some great days with up to 20 fish coming

in, although we have experienced a

few slower days this fall compared to

last fall. Seems like the fish will put the

feedbags on for a couple days, and then

become lazy for a few days after.

The latest catches have seen rainbows

between 2 3 lbs and bull trout up to

10 Lbs. We have seen the odd Rainbow

over 4 Lbs, but not as many as we had

expected. Especially since we saw some

fat rainbows in August that were finding

some kokanee to eat. This pattern

has changed, and the fish are back to

eating mysis shrimp or any remaining

insects in the lake.

October provided us with some

decent weather and some really good

outings. We have been taking a lot of

corporate groups out lately, as the year

is winding down for a lot of businesses

who have been busy all summer and

finally get to enjoy a break. These trips

have been a blast. It’s always a good

‘team building’ experience, with maybe

a little bit of friendly competition to

make it interesting.

November/December have always

been our best months in the fall, so

we’ll see what the fish gods bring us.

Columbia River:

The river is still producing some

beauty Rainbows, although we have

wrapped up our guided trips on the jet

sled for this season. Unless we get some

mild, sunny days coming up.

Last week, we did manage to land

some rainbows up to 20 inches. The

water remains

low, and the fish

are hanging in

a lot of different

runs. The braided

water is still producing

fish on

the streamers or

wooly buggers.

And the back

eddies are still

holding fish and

providing some

good takes on

the indicator and

nymph.

There are also still walleye hanging

around, so that’s another option as well.

While we may not make many trips on

the jet sled coming up, we will still hit the

river a few times from the shore this winter.

Looking forward to some ‘float fishing’

and some bottom fishing, as these

are easy techniques from the shore.

What are they biting on???

On the lake, it’s been a mixed bag

lately. One day the bucktails are working,

but lately the spoons have been

producing more. The fish seem to be

located in pockets. We have covered a

lot of water lately and found some good

Emergency can strike at any time. Having

a plan in place can be a difference-maker in

ensuring you and your family are able to get

out safely. Are you prepared?

“Fire can start in the blink of an eye,” said

Gareth Jones, president and CEO of the Canada

Safety Council. “Preparation is essential.

Everyone should know how to get out of their

house at a moment’s notice — because in some

cases, a moment’s notice is all you will get.”

Home fires, of course, can spread rapidly.

They can occur for a wide variety of reasons,

including faulty appliances and wiring, flammable

materials that are left too close to a

heat source, open flames left unguarded and

carelessness when handling cigarettes.

5 x 7

“I’ve learned how

to have an entrepreneur’s vision.”

COCO SEITZ, OWNER,

MAMA'S DUMPLINGS

A good home fire escape plan is crucial and

everyone in the household should be involved

in its creation. Walk through the home, taking

note of all potential escape routes. If your

household has younger children or includes

people who are more visual learners, consider

drawing a physical map of the house

with at least two exits out of each room clearly

identified.

Here are a few other tips to help you along

as you’re considering your fire escape plan:

Plan ahead of time with regards to any

seniors, infants, and mobility-impaired individuals.

Identify someone in the home

whose responsibility it is to assist them

in the event of an emergency.

Be ready in case of fire

Plan a meeting location once outside. This

is the spot by which everyone in the household

should gather once the house has been

evacuated. It should be a safe distance from

the home and easily identifiable.

Practice your fire escape plan twice a year,

making sure to be as realistic as possible with

it. Practice for safe speed — time may be of

the essence.

At the same time, keep in mind that practice

doesn’t have to induce fear. It’s okay to

warn the household ahead of time that there

will be a fire drill.

Faith, Hope & Charity

Barnstorming Co.

Once you’re out, stay out. Even if someone

is missing, firefighters are much better

equipped to be able to rescue them safely

than you will be in a moment of panic and

high adrenaline.

Be cautious, be proactive, be safe. A fire can

be a devastating and traumatizing experience

but, by putting your safety and the safety of

your family first, you’ll be best positioned to

escape with the most irreplaceable thing you

have: your lives.

Canada Safety Council

RDKB to get moving on Green Corridor

Transportation will get greener in the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) thanks to a

$50,000 Active Transportation Network Planning Grant from the Province of BC.

The funds, combined with a $50,000 contribution from the RDKB, will lead to the development of

the Lower Columbia Rolling Green Ribbon (see image below), a biking/walking corridor that will link

the downtown cores of Rossland, Warfield, Trail, Montrose and Fruitvale, as well as Electoral Areas

A and B. The objective will be to link major employers, schools and other amenities for the benefit of

commuters and recreational users.

“This project is another step the RDKB is taking to meet our strategic priorities to address environmental

stewardship and climate preparedness, respond to demographic and social change, and provide

cost-effective services to our residents,” said Diane Langman, chair of the RDKB’s Board of Directors.

The project will include several stakeholders, including the South Kootenay Green Link (SKGL) &

Active Transportation (AT) Working Group, which includes members from each of the electoral areas

and municipalities involved in this initiative. Additionally, representatives from the Ministry of Transportation

and Infrastructure, as well as environmental and economic organizations will be involved.

A steering committee will be created to engage with community members, representatives from business

and industry, cycling groups, the RCMP and the school district, among others.

The next step will be for the RDKB to issue a Request for Proposals to hire a consultant to move the

project forward.

Christmas in The Outlet

The Procter Christmas Craft Faire and the Harrop Hall Last

Chance Christmas Faire have decided to combine their events

this year in order to host a Covid-appropriate Holiday Market.

Vendors will be spread throughout 3 festive locations on the

weekend of December 5 and 6, 9 am 3 pm in order to provide

enough room for guests to socially distance comfortably

while shopping.

The first location will be at the Harrop Hall, the second at

the Little Red Schoolhouse, and the third at the Procter Hall,

plus don’t forget to check out Gallery 229 just up the road from

the Procter Hall. There will be a donation jar at the door for

Things get twinkly at Taghum Hall

Taghum Hall has a case of elves, with no immediate cure for

these seasonal twinkles. Upcoming are three twinkly events:

“Gnomes for the Kitchen” on Saturday, November 27 with

dollmaker Susan Forster offers participants the opportunity to

make a personal gnome just in time for Christmas. “Getting

Started with Alcohol Ink” with Brenda Cavalier, which runs

optional entry fees. Outdoor bonfires, warm drinks, and a festive

atmosphere will encourage our community to gather in a

safe space, while supporting our local artisans.

This is intended to be a fun tour of our community, so guests

will be given a different colored ticket at each location upon

paying their entrance donation. At the next location, just show

your previous ticket and receive a new one for that venue.

Once all three tickets have been collected, guests will be eligible

to enter their name into the draw for a super-sized gift

basket filled with products from ALL the vendors, which will

be drawn by live video the day after the event.

All Covid safety protocols will be strictly followed, and face

masks required.

Saturday, December 4, introduces participants to an exciting

new medium. Preregistration is required for these workshops,

which benefit the Hall’s kitchen renovation project. On Friday,

December 10 from 4 to 9pm, “A Taghum Hall Country

Christmas” is where things really get twinkly, with crafts, baking,

music, a kids-only market, a visit from the Big Elf himself,

and a play—“The Santa Interviews”—featuring talented young

thespians. Full information at taghumhall.ca.

If you are interested in being a vendor, please email Caroline

at proctercommunitysociety@gmail.com or pick up your

application form at the Procter Store. All products must be

handmade, no distributors please.

Hope to see you there! Dress warm for outdoor fun, and feel

free to bring your bells, Christmas carols, and holiday spirit.

Fishing report...cont’d from pg 7

pockets of fish. Once you're into the fish, it seems to be busy

with lots of action and double headers. Favourite bucktails have

been the #203 (November Special), 210 (bleeding gill), 215 (grey

ghost) and the 226.Spoons working best for us are the usual

Gibbs/Delta croc. Brass/fire stripe, Hammered Brass/fire stripe,

brass/fire wing have been our best lures for rainbows.

And for the bull trout, it’s been the usual STS or Lemon Lime

flasher followed by the Green Spatterback or Green pistachio

hoochie. Depths from 80ft to 150ft have been working for us.

Speed is always a factor and depends on water temperature.

At this moment in time, we are running between 2.7mph and

3.2mph.

Hope this helps with your next adventure.

Tight lines………….

Be prepared on the road!

The unprecedented atmospheric river

event is a really good reminder on how to

actually be prepared for a road trip in British

Columbia.

As a kid I took it for granted with my grandparents,

that no matter where we would go,

there would always be the old brown Coleman

cooler packed with hard boiled eggs,

cold grilled cheese sandwiches, cut up veggies,

thermos of coffee and a thermos of tea.

They would say “you just can’t

always know if you will get to

where you are going around here.” These road

trips from their past are a reminder of what

we may face.

Always be prepared, you have the room to

always pack a few more things in case of an

emergency. Always have a good emergency

kit packed up when traveling.

At a minimum you should always have on

hand:

Wills & Power of Attorneys

Representation Agreements

Real Estate Purchases & Sales

Real Estate Contracts

Mortgages/Refinances

Changes to Land Titles

Subdivisions

Easements

and more

1. Well stocked first aid kit, with personal

medications

2. Non perishable foods/ snacks (Lots,I

mean LOTS)

3. Lots of potable water to drink.

4. Good quality jumper cables or a mini

booster pack

5. Matches/ Lighter, a flashlight and some

candles

6. A good socket set and basic tools.

7. Spare

charging cable

for your smart

phone

8. Always

carry a bit of

cash, can’t rely

on your cards

SOLD

9.Small

shovel/ Multi

tool (some cool ones out there)

10. Nice warm blanket

Cars are sealed up enough that one candle

can be enough of a source of heat to keep you

warm enough when you are stranded. Always

check the tire pressure in your spare tire,

always try to keep as much fuel in your tank

as you can in between long durations with no

stations.

Most importantly, ALWAYS TELL SOME-

ONE your trip plans! Where are you going?

When you plan on reaching your destination?

What route are you taking? Promise to call or

text when you reach your destination.

There is always someone important in your

life to relay these crucial pieces of information

to. At the very least, write down your plans

and leave them at home in a visible place in

your residence before you leave. It maybe

The Scarletizing of “The Addict”

Addiction is not a choice. It is not a character

flaw or ethical failure. It is not a symptom

of a morally corrupt human being.

Those who share the life of an “addict”

are not co-conspirators or accomplices who

aid and abet alcohol and drug use. They are

human beings too, who love and cherish the

“addict” as deeply as anyone loves another.

“Othering” the parents of the addict, stigmatizing

non-traditional families, labelling with

concepts of brokenness the single mother who

is struggling to survive, the absent father, the

unemployed, racialized minorities, siblings

and friends who may have also used drugs

with “the addict,” all of these are merely a

projection. They represent nothing more than

an avoidance of the disturbing reality that

addiction can happen to anyone.

It can happen to your son, daughter, sister,

brother, wife, husband, mother, father,

grandparent, aunt, uncle, colleague, or friend.

Addiction can happen in the traditional

nuclear family. Addiction could happen to

you.

Addiction occurs insidiously and mercilessly.

The changes in personality and behaviour is

initially nebulous and if unchecked morphs

relentlessly into a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde persona.

“The addict” becomes unrecognizable to

those dearest and closest who are abandoned

to a grief that society fails to recognize. He or

she has boarded a train to which loved ones

are denied access, a train from which there is

rarely an exit. The journey often ends tragically

in institutionalization and/or death.

Shaming and blaming “the addict” is disturbingly

reminiscent of the Puritanical projections

in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet

Letter. The means by which our society Scarletizes

the addict reveals not the sins of a human

being, but the inconvenient truths society

refuses to allow into conscious awareness.

Addiction is not a disease. The dichotomous

thinking styles of those who regard “the

addict” in terms of binary opposites, from a

framework of good and bad, moral and corrupt,

and those who regard dependency as

a function of a diseased mind, might offer

meaning and security in a chaotic world, but it

clouds our ability to see the big picture.

Our society’s propensity for

black-and-white-conceptualization shows a

kind of tribal thinking that clouds our ability

to look at life from eyes other than our own.

It is a kind of thinking style that shields us

against larger truths but paradoxically locks us

into a lower level of consciousness.

We live with illusion that we are operating

with love and altruism while acting together

in a unified front that reinforces our sense

of virtuousness notwithstanding the glaring

social and political inequities that bespeak a

different truth.

The big truth about addiction is that the

behaviour of “the addict” cannot be modified

with behavioural modification techniques

and cannot be treated with a “disease-based”

medical model while ignoring the powerfully

influential interaction of sociocultural

and humanistic influences. The big truth is

that addiction is not a chronic noncommunicative

disease that can be managed with an

evidence-based disease model. We need to

abandon the assumptions under which we are

operating and open our minds and hearts to

new ways of seeing.

“The addict” is a human being in a profound

state of physical and/or psychological suffering.

He or she is rarely blameworthy of anything

more than the same imperfections manifesting

in each of us. The most entrenched “addicts”

are often the victims of childhood sexual

abuse at the hands of those with institutionalized

powers

or those

entrusted with

their care. Others

have been

removed from

their homes

and robbed of

HYBRID

loving family,

community,

land, language,

and heritage

by those who

ruthlessly

exploited the

powers vested

in them. Many

were the victims

of abandonment

by

those who

abdicated their

responsibilities,

and who

were never

made accountable

for their

actions.

A significant

majority

of “addicts”

are those who

also suffered

physical and/or sexual abuse in a society that

turned and turns a blind eye to physical, sexual,

and financial abuse committed under the

patriarchal umbrella. Many were refugees

escaping impossible life circumstances and

turned into “sex slaves.” Some were human

beings who were betrayed and deceived by

others, who suffered unspeakable trauma, and

abandoned and left destitute by society.

A significant number of those “addicts”

suffer from the painful aftermath of injuries

sustained in sports, motor vehicle accidents,

and falls. These individuals became the unwitting

victims of the pharmaceutical industry’s

exploitive practices, which implicated thousands

of pharmacists and physicians in the

reckless and unethical dispensation of opiates.

An alarming number of those suffering

from addictions have been the victims of Intimate

Partner Violence. In the context of a legal

system that goes to remarkable lengths to safeguard

the rights of the accused, virtually nothing

is done to protect the rights of the victim.

The classic remedy of a “Restraining Order”

offered to a woman who fears for her life and

for the safety of her children, can be more like

a red flag to a bull than a functional means of

protection. Those with policing powers rarely

intervene when a victim is at imminent risk of

serious harm, even when the victim is living

in a state of terror. Unless, and until the victim

has been grievously wounded, the justice

system offers little protection from the truly

dangerous offender.

Physicians with knowledge and authority to

act, who can protect society’s most vulnerable,

protect themselves, fearful of liability for

wrongful detention.

A significant number of those with addictions

have experienced “mild” traumatic brain

Injury. Many of those have a lifetime history

of multiple brain injuries that traumatically

batter the brain and set the stage for the longterm

sequelae of neuropsychiatric symptoms

known as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

(CTE). CTE is a devastating neurodegenerative

disease that initially looks like dementia

but evolves into what historically was regarded

as “traumatic insanity” with homicidal and

suicidal ideation, persecutory delusions and

substance abuse.

Research has proven over and over again

that there is nothing “mild” about a traumatic

brain injury. Even a single traumatic head

injury (a pre-concussive incident) can set the

brain on fire: a neuroinflammatory process

can be unleashed and foreshadows neuronal

death, brain mis-circuitry, and a depression in

brain function.

One single traumatic brain injury can

unleash a cascade of symptoms that can affect

every organ in the body: cognitive changes,

changes in personality and behaviours, sensory

(visual and hearing impairments), motor

impairments (difficulties walking, talking,

swallowing, and breathing), sleep impairments

(insomnia, nightmares with catastrophic ideation.

REM Sleep Behaviour Disorder), psychiatric

impairments (anxiety, depression,

suicidality), depressed immune function, and

persistent pain. Functional impairments in all

areas of life compromise an individual’s ability

to contribute to life and to sustain relationship

with others.

In a desperate attempt to manage the symptom

cascade, a complicated and unhealthy

relationship with alcohol and drugs invariably

develops. Loss upon loss, loss of employment,

loss of relationships, loss of driving privileges,

loss of interest in life, create an unbearable

sense of worthlessness with the devastating

loss of meaning and purpose in life. In the

context of the battered brain, the use of alcohol

and drugs is like throwing gasoline on a

raging fire.

Every person whom we regard as “the

addict,” is a human being who has suffered tremendous

emotional and/or physical trauma.

“The addict” does not deserve to be pathologized,

demonized, shamed, punished, or

imprisoned. “The addict” does not deserve to

be “Scarletized.”

We are like the Captain on a Ship of Fools,

allegorically described in Plato’s Republic.

Jam-packed with society’s most unwanted, the

ship sailed the seas in search of destinations

where tickets to a freak show could be bought

and sold, with a callous indifference and deafening

silence to the agony of the profoundly

disabled.

How long will we continue to ignore the

plight of “the addict?”

“addicts” line our streets, flood our shelters,

and plague our hospital emergency waiting

rooms, AND as the frequency of accidental

substance use continues to escalate, are we not

being asked to look inward?

Are we not being asked time and time again

to reflect deeply about the way we avoid personal

responsibility by blaming the victim and

shirking our moral obligations to each other?

The alarming number of overdose deaths in

our culture is an urgent call to us all to abandon

our naïve and parochial worldview.

“The addict” is not a human being who

can be rid of by compartmentalizing, magical

thinking, or crossing our fingers. “The

addict” lives in all of us, in every family, and

forms part of the individual psyche and collective

unconscious. It is us who need to open

our hearts and to make the container of our

hearts bigger. It is us who need to allow the

deep pain and suffering of humanity into our

conscious awareness. It is us who need to see

“the addict” through the eyes of BIG truth,

deep love and compassion.

Come Picnic in Winlaw

As supply chains rattle the province, the

need for locally-sourced products and locally-grown

food has never been greater. Thankfully,

in the Slocan Valley, there is a group of

driven and caring people who are passionate

about food access, food security and ensuring

those who have barriers to healthy, nutrient-dense,

local and organic food - get what

they need.

Sara Belinda Neufeld

It is with great sadness that family and friends announce the

passing of Sara Belinda Neufeld on October 28, 2021.

Sara was born on June 5, 1969 in Blackpool, Lancashire. She

immigrated to Calgary in 1989 with her 18-month-old son Paul.

While a quiet and private person, Sara usually had a smile on

her face and a twinkle in her eye. She had an English sense of

humour and preferred to see the glass as half full. She always

had a kind word and was quick to offer a helping hand if she

could.

Sara enjoyed watching hockey, football (soccer to us Canadians)

and tennis. She was quite skilled with a soccer ball and

sometimes took it when she walked her dog.

Although she suffered with failing heath for the last several

years, she never let on she would just start a new pursuit

when she could no longer do something.

Good at most thing she tried, her later hobbies were kayaking

and photography and she became quite good at both. Last

summer she grew a nice garden and was proud of her beans

and carrots and tomatoes. She was forever trying new things

and truly enjoyed every day as best as she could.

Loving Canada for the opportunites it had offered her, she was

also proud of her English heritage. Sara loved her family, her

friends and her dog. She had a great love for animals of all

kinds, and even had a tree frog that became a pet of sorts for

the last couple of years. A friend arranged for her to go horseback

riding with Herb Thompson a few years ago, something

she’d wanted to do all her life. She beamed for days about

that. Sara had a presence on several online forums as she was

house bound for several hours each day. She made friends

all over world: Tasmaia, LA, North Carolina and London on a

spaniel site; and one for Brits abroad as well as a local photography

forum.

She will be fondly remembered and missed by everyone who

had the opportunity to know her. We would like to thank the

doctors, nurses and all the staff at Kootenay Lake Hospital in

Kaslo for all your support, care and compassion through Sara’s

journey, and know she considered you all as friends as well.

Introducing Picnic, the new social

enterprise and community hub by the

incredible folks at Kootenay Food and

West Kootenay Permaculture Coop (WKP-

Coop). This beautiful all-season outdoor cafe,

located in Winlaw on unceded Sinixt Territory,

is re-inventing what it means to give

back.

“When COVID hit, we had to pivot and

figure out what it would all look like,” said

Damon Chouinard, of the West Kootenay

Permaculture Coop. “We

went from having a very

strong volunteer model to

having to find ways to hire

people. Meanwhile a lot of

our income dried up suddenly

During COVID, we

also took on a delivery program

of sorts where we could

take a gift bundle filled with

jams, soups, kale chips and

granola, and bring it to someone

in need. Or if someone

needed medications picked

up in town, we’d pull it all

together. From there, the next

step was Picnic.”

Picnic is thrilled to explore

the food access side of Kootenay

Food from their cafe,

having just launched their

new free soup and smile program.

Anyone can come in

Rest in Peace Dear Girl

for a free cup of soup on the

days they are open, or you

can pay $5 for a cup of soup,

which is essentially buying a

cup of soup for someone in

need.The program will run

through the winter into the

summer of 2022.

Picnic is not just about

reducing barriers to food for

those who need it, they’re all

about offering organic, Kootenay Food-centric,

high quality and seasonal food at a fair

price. For instance, they don’t have avocado

on the menu since it’s not a local product.

They also offer a few vegan and gluten-free

options which they hope to produce more of.

“We’ve had a pretty incredible response

from the community,” said Shauna Fidler of

Kootenay Food. “People are pretty elated that

they can come here for an amazing cup of

coffee (from our master barista Giselle), and

get high-quality organic food. We’re using the

peak harvest of the season and Ananda, our

chef, is super skillful in value processing...

making hot sauce from local peppers, housemade

pickles, ferments, kimchi and jams.

Almost everything is made from scratch,

in-house. It’s pretty amazing.”

They’re also looking for their community

to stock their pantries with Picnic’s shelf-stable,

local and organic preserves. They have

an incredible line-up, from cardamon-ginger

peach jam and candied jalapenos to pickled

beets and classic dill pickles.

“The stresses to our supply chains over the

past couple years have opened up the eyes of

everyone when it comes to food and supplies,”

said Chouinard. “A social enterprise and cafe

like Picnic and the model we want to explore

is fast becoming more relevant than ever.”

Picnic now employs six local employees

and they’re in the process of winterizing their

space at the Spicer Centre behind Rambling

Rose and Spinning Fables. They have a beautiful

tent, propane heaters and will be making

more improvements over the coming weeks

to keep people warm and fed.

Check out the Kootenay Food Pop-Up

Shops, during Slocan Valley Cheer, happening

on December 4, 11 and 18, 2021. You’ll

have the chance to stock up on pickles, jam,

sauces and more. Your purchases will help

feed your community and support this unique

social enterprise. Come for amazing coffee,
