Tree of Remembrance

The Hospice Society of North Kootenay Lake is pleased to

present our annual Tree of Remembrance. Taking root in the

hospice movement, this observance has become a tradition in

many communities across the country during the holiday season

and certainly, is a tradition in Kaslo.

This year, the Tree will be hosted at the Kootenay Savings in

Kaslo, December 10 22, as usual, but the “Doves” will also,

be available at display boxes in local businesses including Ace

Building Supplies, Kaslo IDA Pharmacy, Kaslo Adventure

Centre, Sunnyside Naturals, Figments, and the Angry Hen.

This event allows people to slow down and take a few

moments to remember and honour loved ones who have died,

by writing a remembrance Dove card. This year, we invite you

to write a card as a tribute, not only to loved ones, but to whatever

you are missing and grieving during these challenging

times.

The holiday season can be especially difficult for those of us

experiencing loss. At the Hospice, we offer a safe space and

support for End of Life and Grief and Loss, at no charge.

Please contact the Hospice office with questions or for more

information.

hospice@kaslo.org or 250-353-2299.

Interior Health

orders lifted

On November 30 at midnight,

the Interior Health

COVID-19 Gatherings and

Events Order was lifted.

“We’ve been closely monitoring

COVID-19 activity,

hospitalizations, and immunization

rates in Interior

Health and we’ve seen our

cases drop,” said Dr. Sue

Pollock, Interior Health’s

interim chief medical health

officer. “We will be lifting the

regional restrictions tonight

and people will be able to

host gatherings in their home

and indoor events will be

able to return to full capacity

with proof of vaccination.”

The provincial orders

remain in effect. Proof of

vaccination is required for

indoor events with more

than 50 people. Indoor events

are now allowed at 100%

capacity and outdoor events

continue to have capacity

restrictions of 5,000 people

or 50% capacity, whichever is

greater. Mask requirements

for public indoor settings

remain in effect.

There are no capacity

restrictions for indoor and

outdoor personal gatherings

in private homes and vacation

accommodations. It is

still recommended to keep

groups small and gathering

outside is safer than gathering

inside.

I am here for you

If you have lost someone, or are losing someone you love

to substance-related harms from opioid, alcohol, or other

substance use, you are experiencing a devastating loss in

a society that blames the victim, stigmatizes families, and

disenfranchises our grief.

No one wants to believe that a loss like this

could happen to them, or that they could fall into the

clutches of addiction.

After losing my 22-year-old son to a toxic drug interaction,

I have walked this path. I am here to support you as you

navigate the traumatic grief associated with addiction

and overdose.

David Thompson University Centre reunion planning underway

The organizers of a planned 2023 reunion of faculty, support

staff and students from Nelson’s David Thompson University

Centre are seeking input from people formerly associated with

the school. Preferred dates and reunion events are among the

questions reunion organizers have for interested individuals,

who are asked to contact the reunion committee at dtucreunion@gmail.com

DTUC was a consortium of the University of Victoria and Selkirk

College, established in 1979 on the premises of Notre Dame

University of Nelson following NDU’s closure in 1977. DTUC

students could obtain a UVic BA degree, and the institution

incorporated Nelson’s former Kootenay School of Art, which

became DTUC’s fine arts department. Instruction was available

in a wide range of subjects, including photography, creative

writing, and rural teacher education.

After a BC government assessment committee in fall 1983

approved the continuation of the province’s only “university

centre,” the government reversed course following the collapse

of the November 1983 public sector general strike which

had been widely supported in the West Kootenay. DTUC was

ordered to close May 1, 1984.

“A couple of former fellow DTUC writing students approached

me this past summer about a reunion,” said DTUC reunion committee

member Calvin Wharton, retired head of Douglas College’s

creative writing department. “We contacted some other

We have a list

of questions

to help determine

when in

the year most

people would

for the

event, and

what sort of programming they’d like to see.”

Wharton said 2023 was picked for the reunion in the hope

that pandemic restrictions will be fully lifted by then to allow an

in-person event.

“We’re also interested in contact information people may have

for anyone who participated in the life of the institution,” he

said. He noted that 2021 is 37 years since DTUC was shuttered,

so spreading the word about the reunion is a challenge.

“Personally, I’ve always considered DTUC a magical experiment

because it reached outside traditional academia and

arts education,” said Verna Relkoff, DTUC reunion committee

member and former head of the Kootenay School of the Arts’

creative writing department.

“DTUC was a brief fusion of the two that had extraordinary

energy. It was years ahead of its time.” Fighting for freedom with

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!

Fighting for freedom with fashion

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that

matter.”- Martin Luther King Jr.

Every 30 seconds, another person

becomes a victim of human trafficking.

Although slavery was abolished

150 years ago, today there are more

people in slavery than at any other

time in history.

Human trafficking is the illegal

trade of humans against their will

for the purpose of sexual exploitation,

forced labor, or modern-day

slavery. Human trafficking is a

world-wide problem: it exists anywhere

there are vulnerable humans

and criminals to profit off them as a

commodity.

Pope Francis so accurately said,

“Human Trafficking is crime against

all humanity. We must unite our

efforts to free victims and stop this

crime that’s becoming ever more

aggressive, that threatens not just

individuals, but the foundational

values of society.”

The problem is tragic and real, and human trafficking is a $150

billion dollar industry. As Canadians, we are not immune to the

threat of this licentiousness. efined by law as “transporting of

persons across borders together the recruitment, harbouring

and/or exercising control, direction or influence over the movements

of a person in order to exploit, typically through sexual

exploitation or forced labour described as a modern form of

slavery.” Between 2009 and 2018, there have been close to two

thousand cases of human trafficking in Canada. This pressing

public health concern transcends all races, social classes, demographics,

and gender. The time for action is now. Programs like

Dressember allow for everyone to take part in finding solutions

through awareness.

The collective vision for Dressember is a world in that all

people are free. Dressember is greater than just an awareness

campaign. Participants join a global movement of over 32,000

advocates worldwide to provide essential support to human trafficking

survivors around the globe. Students at Seven Summits

Centre for Learning choose to take part in Dressember because

they believe in the inherent dignity of all people. The proceeds

from this campaign go to provide essential support to trafficking

survivors around the world. Advocate with this student-led

initiative by showing your support as we continue to educate

ourselves and others about this injustice. Fashion is the way forward

for this fundraiser. Daily in

December, participants will wear

dresses and/or ties to signify their

support for victims. Funds are

raised alongside this commitment,

either through direct request or

donation on the website.

Why get involved? Seven Summits

Together, Rosslanders take

after their Covid 19 shut-down of 20 months!

During the shut-down the Gyro Club was able to complete the upgrade to the Gyro Park

playground with the help of Nelson Home Hardware, The City of Nelson and Nelson

Public Works employees. The old playground had reached the end of its lifespan and the

club expects the new gear to entertain kids in the park for many years to come.

The Nelson Gyro Club continues to work behind the scenes around our community

Hans Cunningham, Director of Area G in the Regional District

of Central Kootenay, stated that he is extremely pleased

with the extension of the fibre backbone from Fruitvale to Nelson.

“This link will provide Wi-Fi security and extra capability

as it completes the tri-city loop, and will also provide highspeed

Wi-Fi to the area through which it passes. It is sorely

needed.”

The goal is to be finished by March 2024, subject to permitting

and other factors that can impact the construction schedule.

“Affordable and reliable high-speed internet access is so

important for so many of us in rural BC, and that’s why our

government has been

investing more than

ever before in connectivity

projects for rural

communities throughout the province,” said Roly Russell,

Parliamentary Secretary for Rural Development. “These partnerships

and investments help give our communities and our

residents the potential to really thrive economically, socially

and individually.”

The Trust is providing a total of $1.29 million to the two projects.

Other funders include the federal Canadian Radio-television

and Telecommunications Commission ($4.9 million

through the Broadband Fund), the provincial government

($800,000 through the

Connecting British

Columbia program), the Regional District of Central Kootenay

($400,000) and the Regional District of East Kootenay

($200,000).

These projects, along with the 185 km of backbone currently

being built in the Slocan Valley and South Country, will bring

the Trust’s fibre optic network in the Basin to 1,250 km. Learn
