Penticton Herald-What’s in it for the politicians?

We have posted a number of Letters to the Editor so be sure to read them all

What’s in it for the politicians?

Dear Editor:

As I sit back, and watch all the letters, protests and almost 10,000 signatures against commercialization of any part of  Skaha Lake Park I have one observation.

With all that dissension that the voters of Penticton have shown, as any person with half a brain would realize; nobody wants Trio to have any part of Skaha Lake marina or the park!

Then as any sane person I question myself: “What pot of gold is at the end of this debacle?” What’s in it for the present council and mayor,  and mayors and councillors past?

Certainly it is not for the every day present or future residents of Penticton!

This council is not acting on behalf of its citizens.

Council poked the hornet’s nest

Dear Editor:

Penticton mayor and councillor’s  report cards, mostly by the omissions, offered up interesting reading. Did they admit  to making a mistake? Did they eventually tell us the full story? Did one of them say they  should have listened?

I tried looking, in those report cards, for humility, openness,understanding and honesty . The self-proclaimed, introverted, accidental politician is now looking  to accidentally get sent to Victoria. Some of the councillors are proud  to stick to their opinion regarding Skaha  Park. They’re proud to make those unpopular calls.

That shows a “don’t confuse me with facts, my mind is made up” attitude. Other councillors listed off the jobs they are paid to do. No gold stars there.

Moving Penticton forward doesn’t mean making this city less livable. It doesn’t mean choking  residential streets with cars because developers aren’t required to supply adequate off street parking. Development, in today’s world, without regard to the conservation of our natural resources, infrastructure, public safety and  quality of life is just  ludicrous.

Did they learn anything from the year- and-a-half of issues and outcries? They should have learned to  stop pedaling unresearched, unquantified and false valued programs as the saviours of the city. They should have learned we want facts. They should have learned that, in the next two years, there are a whole lot of astute, committed people that are going to be looking at the budget, the plans and councils  performance. They should have learned, that they have  poked the hornet’s nest.

Rates council Cminus or D

Dear Editor:

Living legends. What does this term mean?

Most dictionaries have this annotated as: “a person who is famous while still living for doing something extremely well.” Have you read the recent local news media where each councilor was asked to assess their performance thus far and come up with a grade (Penticton Western Advertiser)?

They all come out with “B” or, in one case, better grades. How did they arrive at these grades one might ask? Perhaps they fantasize about being living legends as I alluded to earlier.

Probably the biggest living legend right now is Donald Trump and he hasn’t really accomplished anything politically yet. His claim to fame might be that he is probably the world’s foremost misogynist.

As a former teacher, I recall the system by which grades were allocated. I don’t believe that much has changed except for the fact in some cases grades are not used but percentages are.

Let’s go back a little and see what statistics were needed to assess performance. Based on standard letter grades without intergrading, the grades were A, B, C-plus, C, D, F. Pretty cut and dried. Nowadays there are “massaged grades” being used. They include A-plus, A-minus, B-plus and B-minus. What these actually mean is anybody’s guess. The A grade used to mean done extremely well, almost excellent. Now we have A-plus. Does this mean that something is done better than excellent? Is a B-plus better than a B but not quite an A? Is B-minus

better than C-plus but not quite a B? So much for grades!

Let’s look at the City of Penticton’s grades. These should be based on such things as: openness (showing concern for the public and related public issues), transparency, accountability, fiscal responsibility and the ability to listen to concerns and admit it when mistakes are made. How has COP done in these areas? We shouldn’t have to ask when it is a self-evident truth in that most of these should receive no more than a C-minus to D. The independent Oraclepoll sponsored by The Herald showed us this (21 per cent approval rating.)

It is ironic that many members of council have almost broken their arms patting themselves on the back and saying something similar to “atta a boy, job well done!” Oh, did I miss something here? They did their own back smacking probably because no one else would.

A C-minus to D grade seems like more of a fit than B and B-plus. How else can the Peter Principle be rewarded?

Ron Barillaro


This council rates an ‘F’

Dear Editor:

After seeing the report card mayor and council have given themselves (Penticton Western Advertiser), I couldn’t help but chuckle and wonder if a large bottle of airplane glue had been left open in the room where they sat down and rated themselves.

Basically Bs all across the board, with the exception of Tarik Sayeed, who rated himself at B-minus; and Max Picton, who rated himself B-plus (seriously?) and Judy Sentes who did not give herself a grade.

I have decided to go back to my military days when we had to fill out what were called “personnel evaluation reports” once per year on all of our subordinates, and do my own evaluation based on certain criteria. The marks listed below pertain to both mayor and all councillors.

The first five are where they are lacking; the remainder are areas in which they excel:

1. Listening skills: F

2. Leadership skills: F

3. Communications skills: F (had to hire someone else to do it)

4. Proper prioritization: F

5. Effectiveness: D

6. Ignoring their constituents: A

7. Catering to developers: A

8. Overspending: A

9. Making it difficult to open a business: A

General comments: This mayor and council seem to have difficulty in prioritizing between the needs of the residents and the wants of themselves. If I were a psychiatrist, I would have to diagnose a severe case of over-inflated egos, coupled with a warped sense of self importance.

I cannot give them a passing grade, as the average of their scores where they are deficient (F) is not sufficient to progress to the next level. Much improvement is needed overall.

Mark Billesberger


Expecting a legal battle

Dear Editor:

Well, my fellow Pentictonites there, are some serious shenanigans taking place in the hills around our little city and I think I better explain what is going on with an analogy that should make it clear.

Imagine you purchase a home on either one of our beautiful lakes for you, friends and family to enjoy. You build a nice dock. Purchase a couple of jet skis for the kids and a nice little trim runabout for you and the Mrs. to putt around the lake.

You know, a nice idyllic setup.

Then bam, one day out of the blue some bureaucrat proceeds to tell you that you are not allowed to use your boats on the lake and next year you will not be allowed to sit on the sand ever again.You received zero notification and or no invitation to partake in some sort of democratic process.

Nothing. Zilch. Zippo. Nice, eh?

Well that is exactly what is transpiring in the hills around Penticton. Well done, Penticton and Area Cycling Association, you have managed to bend someone’s ear so bad that the democratic rights of others are being trampled.

No problem, there are some viable solutions to this gong show as I see it.

Rescind the closure order and get back to the table and start the democratic process (or least try and make it look like one) to formulate a workable solution for everyone.

PACA purchases their own parcel of land and they have their way with it, or (and this is directed to the PACA board) take some of that taxpayer money that Dan Albas threw at you and start topping up your war chest. Use it to either start purchasing properties around Campbell Mountain and the Three Blind Mice (who came up with this stupid name anyway?) or another not so pleasant option.

I asked Carnac the Magnificent as to what he see’s in the near future.

“A court ordered injunction followed by a protracted legal battle of three to five years.”

Buckle up kids, we are going for a ride.

John McAfee on Russian hacking allegations: “If it looks like the Russians did it, then I can guarantee you it was not the Russians”

Following the release of an FBI report outlining Russia’s alleged role in hacking the 2016 election, Larry King sat down to talk with tech pioneer John McAfee to discuss the current state of cybersecurity.

McAfee is no stranger to cybersecurity. As the developer of the first commercial antivirus program, he has been a major player in the industry for the past 50 years. He is also the CEO of MGT Capital Investments, and an outspoken former presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party.

Based on all of his experience, McAfee does not believe that Russians were behind the hacks on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), John Podesta’s emails, and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. As he told RT, “if it looks like the Russians did it, then I can guarantee you it was not the Russians.”

The Joint Analysis Report from the FBI contains an appendix that lists hundreds of IP addresses that were supposedly “used by Russian civilian and military intelligence services.” While some of those IP addresses are from Russia, the majority are from all over the world, which means that the hackers constantly faked their location.

Yes, a percentage of the population–a growing percentage–is being made physically sick by exposure to wireless radiation waves. Invisible but deadly. For some–the torture is readily apparent to them. For others, it will accumulate over time and manifest as cancer or some neurological or immune issue. Those affected are being tortured and ignored.

Cellular Deception

As the global push to sell us faster data intensifies, cell antennas are being installed on utility poles right by our homes, often without our knowledge or consent. Science warns that the artificial electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) these microcells emit disrupts wildlife, humans, and all living cells.

Teachers, too, are being challenged to become empowered. If they dare to test the levels of radiation coming from Wi-Fi routers in their school, to protect their own health as well as the health of the schoolchildren, or if they turn the router off when not in use, they can lose their job.

Here is an up-to-date 154-page pdf compendium of various MDs’, MD groups’, and PhDs’ correspondence and postings regarding Wi-Fi radiation in schools.

2016 Newsmaker of the Year: David Kampe

David Kampi

Posted: Sunday, January 1, 2017 4:31 pm

It’s challenging writing a story without a direct quote from the subject.

David Kampe doesn’t grant interviews or pose for photos. Press releases are all skillfully worded and approved in advance. The only photo the media has available is a black-and-white portrait taken while he was on holidays.

Yet everybody knows him in the community even though few have met him.

Described by those close to him as shy and “a man of few words,” David Kampe’s actions speak louder than words.

The owner of Peter Bros. Construction and Inland Contracting was voted the South Okanagan’s Newsmaker of the Year for 2016 by online readers and print customers of The Penticton Herald.

In April 2016, Kampe unexpectedly donated $3 million for a permanent MRI machine at Penticton Regional Hospital which was not part of the present PRH fundraising campaign.

Patients in the South Okanagan-Similkameen are currently serviced by a mobile MRI van, which is shared with communities in the Kootenays. It is stationed at PRH only two weeks each month.

The inclusion of a fixed MRI in Penticton will allow regional patients to have uninterrupted access to the machine.

MRI is the commonly used acronym for “magnetic resonance imaging” of body tissues which don’t show up in X-rays or other scans.

Dr. Stacey Piche, radiologist and medical director of medical imaging at PRH, said the impact of Kampe’s gift cannot be overstated.

“Getting the appropriate imaging examination in a timely fashion can be critical in making the correct diagnosis and initiating lifesaving treatment,” she said.

Piche added the fixed MRI particularly helps the most vulnerable, including cancer and stroke patients, and children.

Kampe has been the biggest booster in the community for the PRH expansion.

He previously donated property at Industrial Avenue and Camrose Street valued in 2011 at $1.5 million. In 2015 he donated $2 million directly towards the $20 million patient care tower project which presently sits at $12.5 million to date.

To date his contributions to Penticton Regional Hospital have eclipsed $6.5 million.

Penticton-based Peters Bros. Construction is among the top paving contractors in British Columbia. Although based in the Okanagan, the company performs work throughout the entire province. Peters Bros. has been previously recognized by the Ministry of Transportation with multiple awards for Excellence in Paving throughout B.C. Inland Contracting and Peters Bros.,were founded in the late 1970s and often employ more than 200 people province-wide, including Penticton.

Kampe’s philanthropy extends well beyond the hospital.

He continually sponsors the headlining artists at the Penticton Peach Festival, the annual grand parade, and the Snowbirds on years when they are available.

“David Kampe’s level of support is absolutely invaluable to the festival,” Peachfest president Don Kendall said, Sunday. “Since he’s become more involved over the past seven or eight years it’s taken the festival to a new level. He’s been instrumental in making Peachfest the largest free five-day festival in Canada. I can’t say enough about him.”

Headliners over the past several years have included Trooper, George Canyon, Honeymoon Suite, Chilliwack, and Emerson Drive.

The fact Peachfest is free, alcohol-free and a family oriented are reasons for Kampe’s continued support for the event, Kendall said. Kampe’s generosity has encouraged other local businesses to step forward and sponsor other events at the festival.

Peters Bros. is also active with the Penticton Vees junior A hockey team, paying for all children’s admissions for both the regular season and playoffs.

“Dave has meant so much to the Vees and the entire community,” Vees president and head coach Fred Harbinson said, Sunday.

“His contributions to allow local kids to enjoy Vees hockey these past few seasons have been a massive game changer to the atmosphere at the SOEC. Dave truly cares about Penticton and I appreciate all that he does for our community.”

Other significant contributions by Kampe in 2016 included replacement of aging computers, iPods and laptops at the OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre and a donation to KVR Middle School to purchase jackets for its girls’ basketball team.

Many of the other donations to other causes by Kampe remain anonymous.

Kampe received 53 per cent of the 901 votes cast in our 14th annual readership poll. Save Skaha Park and Nelson Meikle, both working independently of one another on community activism, were second with 29 per cent, and Penticton City Council third with 13 per cent. Five other nominees shared five per cent of the remaining votes.

Cap and trade catastrophe for Canadians

Cap and trade catastrophe

Lorrie Goldstein

Yesterday at 4:25 PM

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. (JACK BOLAND, Toronto Sun)


Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s cap and trade scheme goes into effect Sunday, Jan. 1. Here are eight major reasons why you should be alarmed.


1. Costs appear to be higher than estimated

The Wynne government estimates the initial cost of cap and trade per household will be $156 per year, due to increased costs for gasoline ($8 per month) and natural gas home heating fuel ($5 per month), rising to $285 annually in 2019 in direct and indirect costs. However, its own estimate that it will take in $2 billion annually from cap and trade ($8 billion from 2017 to 2020) suggests the real annual cost to Ontarians will be $400 per household, given that Ontario has about five million households. The Ontario Energy Board says the initial increase in homeowners’ heating bills alone — which won’t be listed as a separate charge — will be $5.68 to $6.70 per month, already up to 34% higher than the government’s claim.

2. No transparency

Unlike a carbon tax, which is visible, cap-and-trade raises the prices of most goods and services, since most consume fossil fuel energy. Businesses pass along their increased costs from having to buy carbon allowances from the government or their competitors, by raising their prices. Since the price of consumer goods is determined by numerous factors, Ontarians will have no way of knowing what they are paying for cap and trade.

3. Severe impact on low-income Ontarians

Cap and trade is essentially a hidden tax on consumption. Since lower income earners, including seniors on fixed incomes, spend a larger proportion of their income on necessities, such as heating their homes in winter, cap and trade will disproportionately impact them in terms of costs. This even though their carbon footprints are relatively small because they consume less, tend to live in apartments as opposed to single family homes, take public transit as opposed to owning cars and do not engage in fossil-fuel intensive activities such as taking foreign vacations.

4. No revenue neutrality

While the government is promising to help Ontarians cope with the higher cost of living cap and trade causes, its scheme will not be revenue neutral, meaning it will not return to the public in the form of tax cuts or grants the $2 billion annually it intends to raise from carbon pricing. Instead of helping all Ontarians to cope with the higher cost of living, the government will pick winners and losers, which governments are notoriously bad at doing.

5. Limited effectiveness

Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk says cap and trade will only reduce Ontario’s industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change by 3.8 megatonnes annually by 2020, 20% of its 18.7 megatonnes target. The government claims the rest of its target, 14.9 megatonnes or 80%, will be achieved by counting emission reductions in California and Quebec resulting from Ontario’s entry into their cap and trade market in 2018.

6. Double counting emission cuts

Lysyk warns that since there is no agreement between California, Quebec and Ontario about how to report emission cuts under cap and trade, they may be double counted, undermining the credibility of Ontario’s reported cuts. For example, a business in California could sell 100 carbon allowances (each one permitting the bearer to emit one tonne of industrial carbon dioxide emissions or its equivalent) to an Ontario company. California could then record the sale of 100 carbon allowances as having lowered its emissions by 100 tonnes, because they’re being exported to Ontario. Meanwhile, Ontario could record the purchase of the same 100 credits by an Ontario company as having lowered Ontario’s emissions by 100 tonnes, because it lowered California’s emissions.

7. No verification of emission cuts

Ontario businesses emitting greenhouse gases are expected to pay up to $466 million more from 2017 to 2020 to buy carbon allowances from emitters in Quebec and California, which could rise to $2.2 billion by 2030. “Our concern with these payments,” Lysyk said, “is that the government has not adequately studied whether Ontario businesses buying these allowances will actually contribute to additional emissions reductions in Quebec and California.” As a result, “these funds may be leaving the Ontario economy for no purpose other than to help the government claim it has met a target.”

8. Potential misuse of free carbon allowances

The Wynne government is giving out free carbon allowances — essentially free money — to major Ontario industrial emitters because it says it has to protect them from foreign competition in jurisdictions that don’t have carbon pricing. But it has not explained what mechanism it has, if any, to prevent industries that receive free allowances from raising their prices as if they had paid for them, resulting in undeserved, windfall profits, as occurred in Europe’s cap and trade market, the Emissions Trading Scheme.
