A Parks Canada staff member Sarah Boyle said a preliminary park boundary will be ready in November regarding a proposed national park in the South Okanagan and Similkameen.
Project manager Boyle was before the regional district board on Thursday, where she said public consultation throughout the region will begin in November and last until January.
Boyle said Parks Canada will be hosting several public information sessions in that timeframe and that information on the park plan will be posted online in November — and will be taken down 90 days later, she added.
Exact dates and locations for public consultation sessions haven’t yet been determined.
A memorandum of understanding is then expected to be signed in August of 2019, Boyle said, between Parks Canada, the B.C. government and the Okanagan Nation Alliance, to give the park plan a formal green light.
Parks Canada said August park boundaries are currently focused on areas around Mount Kobau and the South Okanagan Grasslands protected area.
“Right now I’m working with our GIS folks in getting updates on property identification numbers,” Boyle said Thursday. “I can’t present that map and give you an idea until we get that figured out at the tripartite level, which will be coming shortly.”
She said it’s hoped the national park would be open by 2020 or 2021, but noted it would take 12 years after that for the park to be fully operational. A national park
The national park plan has long been divisive in the South and Okanagan and Similkameen, and several board members shared concerns that have commonly been heard.
“We’re gunna lose our agricultural land. We have approximately 10,000 acres in the Agricultural Land Reserve… That’s my biggest concern, we’re losing agricultural land all over B.C.,” Cawston director George Bush said.
“The other concern,” Bush continued, “is that the local government is kind of being left out in the consultation, and that’s where I’d like to be included.”
In response, Boyle said the federal, provincial and First Nations governments are working on a strategy to ensure they can work with farmers, particularly cattle ranchers.
Boyle asserted that existing cattle leases on Crown land would be honoured and that no expropriation of land would take place anywhere in the region if the national park goes ahead.
My name is Sue McKortoff and I want to continue being the Mayor of Osoyoos!
I am qualified after serving as a Town Councillor for 3 years, and the Mayor for the past 4 years. As the Mayor, some of my responsibilities include being a Director on Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS), Highway 3 Mayors and Chairs Coalition, Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust (SIDIT), Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB), and International Osoyoos Lake Board of Control (IOLBC).
I was employed as a Primary teacher at Osoyoos Elementary School for 34 years, and am active with the 1-to-1 reading program. I continue to volunteer for Soroptimist International of Osoyoos and Osoyoos Festival Society.
During the last 4 years, I have enjoyed working with a positive, energetic council, and a professional Town staff. Council has been proactive in dealing with new town infrastructure, policing issues, keeping our secondary school open, planning our Town Center Renewal, providing more trails and playgrounds, and completing a study on a Community Health Center.
We are a world class tourist destination and a designated Resort Municipality, due to our climate, our warm lake and our positive attitude- giving credence to our logo “Canada’s Warmest Welcome.” Tourism is a huge economic driver and we are pleased to know that the RMI program will continue for the next 3 years.
I am an organized, energetic, team player and a positive leader. I take the time to listen and I will continue to educate myself on the variety of local issues that are important to our community.
Please support me to continue working for our beautiful TOWN.
Brian Harvey has a thirty-five year family history in Osoyoos, and has lived here full-time since 2014. “Our community is very special to me and I wish to contribute to its growth and well-being and am well-qualified to do so.”
Brian brings to this campaign many years of experience that will enhance his effectiveness on Council. With over twenty years of engineering, management and business experience in the telecommunications industry, he was responsible for development, investment strategy and creation of strategic partnerships.
He was called to the bar of the Law Society of Upper Canada in May 2007, and served eight years with the Department of Justice Canada as Counsel in the Civil Litigation Section. This position allowed him to gain knowledge of legislative process, administration and policy development. He is currently practicing law in Osoyoos, specializing in contract matters, wills and estates.
I decided to run for Council this year as I feel I have the time, experience and dedication to be a valuable asset to the team and to the Taxpayers. I understand the Community and the South Okanagan thanks to my involvement with the local Rotary Club, Director Destination Osoyoos, and Past President of the Chamber of Commerce.
My biggest asset in having been on council in a similar size town for two terms where we had the same type of problems where the main street was a Highway and the majority of the community lived outside the town boundaries so the town taxpayers taxes were paying to maintain the arena, library and other facilities. I understand that you can run on a single concern but once it has been past or defeated you have another four years to serve and it is not always fun sitting in for long hours finishing the budget and trying to decide which water line needs to be replaced so I understand the commitment
I am a very positive person as I have been involved in the Dale Carnegie course and have completed Ironman Canada so understand you need to be disciplined and need to be able to listen to the taxpayers concerns as you are representing them and sometimes you may not agree but you need to bring their points to the Council table.
Currently I look after a Commercial book of business which goes from Penticton to Princeton including Osoyoos so I know a lot of the other City Councilors in those communities which I think is very important to be able to look not just the towns concerns but the South Okanagan as we share a lot of resources.
I have owned and operated many businesses over the tears including a Subway, Your Dollar Store for More, Vitamin Store, Insurance agency so understand the businessmen’s concerns as well as the renter and home owners we own a place in Osoyoos and Mt Baldy. I think I have the qualifications to sit as a Councilor for the town of Osoyoos and on October 20, 2018 I hope you get out and vote.

With the hiring of a new staffer and a major capital funding campaign on the near horizon, the Desert Valley Hospice Society (DVHS) continues to expand its role as the leader in hospice and end-of-life services in the South Okanagan.
Executive director Donna Gordan told ODN in an interview this week that the society is formulating its capital program right now. The short-term goal is to provide one bed at the Osoyoos support and care facility to offer “respite” for care-givers.
“Respite means that when primary care giver – a spouse or a child — wants to go out of town for a week or a weekend, the patient could come here and have 24-hour care,” said Gordan.
Eventually, she said, she hopes to see four to six beds at the facility, which currently offers hospitality suites for relatives visiting elderly relatives in care in Osoyoos, Oliver or Okanagan Falls. The building also contains a massage room, complete kitchen, living are, craft room and offices for staff.
Gordan came to the DVHS a little over a year ago from a fund-raising job with the Canadian Cancer Foundation in Edmonton.
She is the “chief funds developer” at the society. And making the job a perfect fit was her “experience with death and dyeing. I assisted my mom with her end-of-live journey. She was 94 and passed away from pneumonia. … I was her primary care giver for a month while she was on her journey.”
The position that will be open shortly is a “hospice volunteer program director.” Society president Lois Brummet is currently filling the role in a volunteers capacity. The job description and pay scale have t be approved by the board before the search can begin.
For an organization that runs mainly on volunteers, it is a vital role. Programs provided by the DVHS from Okanagan Falls to Osoyoos include:
Supportive care day program – On Thursdays from 10 to 3 for people with chronic or serious illness gather at the centre for socialization, activities, lunch and social-emotional care;
Palliative massage – Trained volunteers offer massage to clients and care-givers;
Acute Care – Volunteers visit patients at the South Okanagan General Hospital and provide support;
Grief Support – Trained volunteers and staff provide one-on-one grief support, education and referrals;
Volunteer Training – Twice a year, 36-hour training programs are conducted for would-be volunteers;
Let Your Life Speak – Clients share stories and messages. Volunteers conduct interviews and create paper or digital files to share with family and friends;
NAV Care – Seriously ill people are assigned navigators to support them through the health care system and finding community resources;
One-to-one support – Volunteers offer support in homes, care facilities or hospital. Social companioning and respite can be part of the service, as are end-of-life vigils;
Tuck-in program – A Thursday afternoon phone call to clients to ensure they have medications, equipment, supplies and care in place for the weekend.
The annual budget for the society is about $150,000, of which 75 per cent comes from fund raising.
In November the society will hold its 12th annual Celebration of Sharing Hands. It’s a wine and cheese fund raiser at the Frank Venables Theatre in Oliver, including silent and live auctions and a bake sale.
Another long-time event is the annual Hike for Hospice in Oliver and Osoyoos.
And making its debut this year in January will be the Hootenanny for Hospice at the Legion in Osoyoos.
The DVHS was created in 2006 by a group of 11 women from Oliver and Osoyoos. In 2007 it became a registered charity.
The society continues to evolve. Brummet told ODN that the board has not yet a “complete governance board … we are still a working board.”
Brummet recently received the BC Hospice Palliative Care Association’s 2018 Award of Excellence for her work and dedication to hospice palliative care.

Shelley and her husband relocated to Osoyoos 2017. British Columbia raised – she is glad to settle into the Okanagan.
Taking on a major home renovation of a local historic property when she moved, Shelley has recently started working in Osoyoos.
She enjoys being apart of our growing community through fundraising, and volunteering. Shelley is a candidate for town council.
She will be focusing on transparency through open dialogue, community and honest practices. Shelley has the energy to ensure council is fair and consistent with the residents of Osoyoos.
Jaswinder Garib, seen here with her dog Gracie, is donating $30,000 as part of the overall $500,000 pledge from the South Okanagan’s Indo-Canadian community to help acquire medical equipment for the Penticton Regional Hospital expansion. She is a graduate of Pen Hi in 1980.
“As a community, we’ve now been in the Okanagan for a long time and it’s good to see our community coming out and creating a bigger presence by putting on events,” she said. “The good thing about the Punjabi community is we enjoy doing things collectively and helping wherever we can. When we work together we can really do great things.”
Jas noted she is contributing a very small piece of a much larger donation. The local Indo-Canadian community has now raised almost $450,000 towards its total pledge.
First degree murder charge laid in connection with homicide of Amelie Sakkalis
A man has been arrested and charged with first degree murder in connection with the homicide of Amelie Sakkalis.
On August 22, 2018 at approximately 7:45 p.m., the RCMP was called to an area north of Boston Bar near Highway 1 where they found the body of 28-year-old Amelie Sakkalis, a Belgian national who was travelling in Canada. The death of Miss Sakkalis was deemed a homicide and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called in to take conduct of the investigation.
Since the initial deployment, IHIT detectives have diligently advanced this investigation and collected significant evidence with respect to the murder of Miss Sakkalis. Now, after less than four weeks following Miss Sakkalis’ death, the investigative journey has yielded a criminal charge against the primary suspect.
On September 14, 2018, IHIT and its partner agencies arrested 27-year-old Sean McKenzie of Oliver, B.C. McKenzie has been charged with first degree murder and will be appearing before a judge in B.C. Provincial Court on September 19, 2018.
“IHIT investigators worked relentlessly to secure and compile the evidence for charge approval and today’s outcome would not have been possible without the tremendous support of our partners,” says Corporal Frank Jang of IHIT. “Amelie’s family in Belgium was notified of the developments in her case and IHIT hopes this will assist them in their healing process.”
Anyone with information, who has not already come forward to police, is asked to contact the IHIT information line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Milfoil cutting to be replaced by rototilling
It’s that time of year when the Okanagan Basin Water Board switches from harvesting the Eurasian milfoil plants in Osoyoos Lake to rototilling, in the hopes of reducing the weed level.
According to release from the water board, rototilling is the more effective method for controlling the noxious weed, but it can only be done when the water temperatures have dropped to the point where dislodged root fragments won’t re-seed themselves.
In the warm-season harvesting the milfoil, the plants are simply lopped off about two metres below the surface. The cuttings are then dumped on shore and trucked away. Harvesting is essentially a cosmetic process, which does nothing to reduce the number of milfoil plants in the lake.
Rototilling is more expensive than harvesting – about $2,500 per hectare compared to about $1,000 – but the process actually gets rid of some of the plants.
Canal lighting contract goes to local firm
A local electrical contractor has been awarded the contract to complete a section of lighting installation along the canal trail.
Lowther Electric will install the additional poles onto the bases that were put in last year along the section of the trail just south of Highway 3.
Lowther’s $12,229 bid was about $300 lower than one from Balogh Electric. Councillor CJ Rhodes said it was heartening to see that the two lowest bidders are local Osoyoos companies.
The installation is intended to be completed before the end of October. Funding is under the provincial Resort Municipalities Initiative (RMI) program. The 15 decorative poles were purchased earlier for $45,930.
UBCM gabfest attracts a crowd
The mayor and a couple of councillors offered up reports on their experiences at the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) convention at Whistler last week.
Mayor Sue McKortoff, Councillors Jim King and Carol Youngberg and town Chief Administrative Officer Barry Romanko attended the five-day gathering of local politicians, which featured plenary sessions, study sessions, forums, clinics, workshops and town halls on a wide array of topics and keynote speeches from the premier and other provincial notables.
One of the key aspects of the annual get together is the chance for delegations to meet with individual members of the provincial cabinet. King mentioned a meeting with education minister Rob Fleming, who said he is working on a funding formula to help keep rural schools open. “I have no idea what the formula is, but it sounded positive,” said King.
Youngberg was excited about discussions with transport minister Claire Trevena about the progress that seems to be occurring around golf cart licensing. “I’ve always had a vision that Osoyoos could be a little golf cart haven for some of us who love to drive them, since I used to go to the golf cart parade in Palm Desert for many years,” she said.
Youngberg, however, won’t be able to champion the licensing of golf carts on town roads because she has decided not to run to retain her seat on council in next month’s election.
McKortoff mentioned that when the town’s delegates visited the various ministers, “We took them each a bottle of Faustino local cider. And they were quite delighted. … We think it might put us on a slightly higher plane, and they’ll remember us.”
The convention began last Monday morning and continued through Friday noon, wrapping up with a pre-lunch speech from Premier John Horgan.
The early-bird registration fee for the event is $475. Hotels listed on the UBCM website averaged about $200 per night. So, the cost of sending the four-person delegation was likely in the neighbourhood of $6,000 plus transportation and meals.
The Legislature will resume sitting in Victoria on Oct 1st. As this is a continuation of the spring session there will be no Ceremonial Speech from the Throne.
There are many issues that will be debated between now and December but I am sure the Cannabis legalization on Oct 17th will be number one on everyone’s minds. There has been a lot of discussion and it was top of mind for all the Municipalities at the UBCM this September. At this time only one store has been approved to start on Oct 17th and that is a Government store in Kamloops. The licensing process is similar to starting up a liquor outlet- it is slow with many legal hurdles. Each community will have the ability to decide location and numbers and some have already passed resolutions to govern these new businesses. This is a learning curve unlike anything local or provincial governments has ever experienced before.
And this leads the conversation into policing. I attended meetings with many of my communities at UBCM and the issue of not enough police presence was of concern to all of them. The South Okanagan has experienced a rise in theft from properties and vehicles this summer. The numbers of people who came out in Oliver for the Crime Forum shows how many people have been impacted by crime and also how much they care for their community. The first ask is always for more RCMP. The entire province is short of officers but rural communities seem to suffer the most. There is no overnight solution that will produce fully-trained police for our communities fast enough. Recruitment is difficult, and not enough officers are being trained to fill the need. No, a community cannot hire fully-trained police officers to fill the void for two reasons: 1) there aren’t any, and 2) all police in rural BC are supplied by contract between the Province of BC and the Federal Government. If we want more police the current contract will need to be refunded and rewritten. Currently, communities under 5000 in population pay 30% of the real costs of policing. At 5001 in population that figure becomes 70%. Some communities have opted to begin lifting taxes towards that goal knowing that in the next census there will be a major hit to local taxes- a 10% tax hike will only pay for one police officer.
All of the communities and Regional Districts I represent used their time at the UBCM conference to get their local concerns in front of Ministers and Staff in a respectful way- there is nothing better than talking face to face with those that can help solve some of their local issues.
Finally, as was raised again at the UBCM, switching our clocks twice a year has become a topic that just won’t go away, despite this governments attempt to ignore it. Twice I have introduced a Private Members Bill to stop the time shift. The consensus is to keep Daylight savings time all year round. I will adjust the Bill to reflect that wish and put it back on the floor of the Legislature this fall.
Happy Wine Harvest!
So, it’s official. I am running for Osoyoos Town Council in the upcoming election! I have been asked a few times WHY I am running – short form answer: before the nomination period I was frequently asked why I wasn’t funning and when I mentioned a few of the reasons to why not, I realized those reasons were the very reasons I should be running!
• I am a local business owner of two small businesses in town and understand some issues that are faced by the small businesses in town and the need for more attention and assistance instead of blockage as well as a stronger support of the shop local campaigns.
• I have a young family and know other young families need a voice for town direction, affordable housing and access to education.
• I am a CPA, and therefore able to analyze the financial aspects of projects and fiscal budgets.
• I love wine and know the importance and value of the various wineries including tourism and jobs.
• I enjoy the lake every year and know the importance of protecting our beautiful asset and understand how much tourism brings this town, but I also know that there is climate change and environmental factors that have and will continue to have an impact on tourism and therefore we need to have a strong backing, driven by local business.
• I know we have an older population that need adequate health care. All of these require young people and families to support.
• I want to ensure that the public voices are heard on more than just a social media platform. More than just basic transparency, I want to ensure council and committee members are actively seeking input; not just waiting to see if anyone comes forward but going out and asking.
I am a life long Oliver resident. I grew up on a mixed fruit orchard and graduated from SOSS in 1980. Tara and I have four children and six grandchildren and we feel blessed to have been able to always call Oliver home. Volunteers are the backbone of our community and I am a proud Kiwanis member and a Life Member of the Royal Canadian Legion.
Together with Tara, we own and operate Hovanes Community Services. This is an agency that supports children and adults with Diverse Abilities in the South Okanagan and Similkameen. I also have training in Conflict Resolution and Mediation. I have received level one and level two certificates from the local government Leadership Academy and I am a recipient of the Queen, Diamond Jubilee Medal for Public Service.
I have also served as a Director for eight years on the Southern Interior Development Initiative trust, twelve years as a Director for the RDOS, I sit on the Okanagan Basin Water Board and I have been on Oliver’s Town council for sixteen years. Six as a councillor and ten as Mayor.
I am running for Mayor of the Town of Oliver for a number of reasons.
- I believe it is important continue to build strong relationships with all levels of government. With a limited tax base, we need the support to maintain and build our community.
- A continued focus on Downtown revitilzation.
- We need to continue to advocate for more police resources as were approved by an RCMP business case. We also need to strengthen bylaw enforcement and provide after hours security through an increased budget process.
- We also need to continue to fund ongoing support for Parks and Recreation programs and offer maintenance and upgrades to our aging facilities.
- Continue to offer a business-friendly community through policy and front counter experience.
To join a community council requires a huge learning curve. Oliver has a large number of joint services with long standing relationships with the Osoyoos Indian Band and Area C of the regional district. Oliver is also the purveyor of a fully twinned domestic water system and we have seven agricultural water systems that we collectively care for.
I am born and raised in Oliver, I am passionate about our great community and I am ready to continue to work hard to give Oliver the best representation.
When the process was over the person who presented the best ideas, and demonstrated they had the leadership skills to forward ideas into reality would gain the confidence of the electorate. The process we use in BC is called first past the post. Believe it or not we had a different system years ago for a short time. In political terms the blink of an eye. It was a preferential ballot where voters had a first and second choice.
Appreciate the political landscape leading up to the 1952 election. The Liberals and Conservatives had formed a new coalition to keep the CCF Party (later the NDP) from power. Just as a note we have a coalition now in BC politics with the NDP and the Greens. So we’ve been through this before.
At the time it was hoped the first and second choice would keep the CCF from ever taking power. There were problems.
CCF voters didn’t vote a second choice and neither did an upstart party called Social Credit. On June 12 1952, election day, the Social Credit Party came first, with one more seat than the CCF/NDP and the Liberals and Conservatives ended up with five seats each and went into oblivion for decades.
WAC Bennett saw the system was a sham designed to obstruct the CCF or his party from gaining power, which backfired and Bennett went back to first past the post. It kept him in power for twenty years. First past the post also elected Dave Barrett and the NDP in 1972 because Barrett convinced voters we did need change. Since then we have had Social Credit, NDP and a BC Liberal Party which is really a repackaged Social Credit Party or a provincial coalition to keep the NDP out of governing.
How are we doing so far? In the strange world of BC politics we are again devising a system to have more of a collective voice in BC. This is not as devious as the first departure from first past the post, but it is just as useless and in the end in my opinion less democratic than the first preferential ballot.
We will have people elected just like we do now correct so far.
However according to the percentage of the vote each party will have members added to the Legislative Assembly. My problem is some will be appointed to the Legislature while other were elected and obtained the trust of those who voted for them.
Who will chose the additional appointed members of each party? I think it will end up, appointments will come from the ranks of party officials who will speak for the electorate who never chose them and an electorate who through the ballot box directly. The voters will participate in the weakening of democracy itself. Ask this question. If we are to truly have representation through an elective process. How do we end up with appointed people sitting in the chamber?
Here is another thought to contemplate. How many parties are their in BC? At present we have 11 parties that have nominated candidates in recent years and another 6 parties that have not nominated a candidate. Hold that thought for a moment.
Remember the saying the road to hell is paved with good intentions? Here is the kicker. Over the history of our Province there have been 69 political parties. What would happen if the change in voting method ignited an interest in these parties reforming or if only 10 or 20 parties emerged?
Try a town hall meeting under those conditions. If that were to happen every two people in the province would constitute a political party. Seriously, I do not believe we would have that many, perhaps six or seven. This would, if it happened constitute the democratic process, I grant that. What I find objectionable is this.
If they got more than five percent of the vote we would have appointed members elected by no one, essentially responsible to their party not the people. Government would become a ‘gaggle of geese’. We can’t get it done with three parties with elected members, think of what it would be like with the new system. In the end we would have a Legislative Assembly full of political hacks and no way to effectively reform our mistake for half a century.
That is why I support first past the post.
I was born in Princeton, BC and lived in several small towns throughout BC. After graduating from Ashcroft Secondary, I attended the University of Alberta in Edmonton then moved to Smithers where we raised our family. In Smithers, I worked as a Child Care Worker at the Alternate School, a substitute teacher, a teacher’s aide, and a nutritional counsellor. In 1991, I formed a forestry company focussing on silviculture and eradication of the mountain pine beetle.
In 2002, we decided it was time for a change and moved to Osoyoos. Now we can’t imagine living anywhere else.
Two of our four granddaughters have graduated from OSS and our youngest is in Osoyoos Elementary School.
During the 2017/2018 year, I was actively involved in the OSS PAC and was the OSS rep for the District PAC. This year, with no students in the school, I am no longer able to be a member but would still like to attend the meetings. I am the president of the Sun Bowl Skating Club, a member of the Osoyoos Ambassador Program committee (formerly Osoyoos Royalty Committee), and a high school and club volleyball referee. Following the court challenge, I am no longer semi-retired. I was offered a job as a legal assistant at the John R. Cooper Law Corporation and in that capacity have since become a Commissioner of Oaths for British Columbia.
I have been involved in the education system for many years, in several capacities – student, athlete, parent, grandparent, employee, coach, volunteer. I bring to the table the experience of a student and athlete, the wisdom of a parent and grandparent, and the involvement of an employee, coach and volunteer. I also bring the experience of being a small business owner and all the challenges that entails.
My priorities include, ensuring students receive quality education in their own community, and rebuilding the confidence and trust of the school board in our community.
I value education. I believe it is the key to our children’s future, as well as the future the of our communities.
My name is Kenny Music and I am proud to be running for Councillor in this election. I have owned my property in Osoyoos for the last two years, coming from Vancouver, Squamish and originally from Calgary.
I have an extensive background in Human Resources and Administrative Management, having been a Business Analyst/Mentor with Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), an HR Associate with the City of Calgary, and as General Manager/Executive Director with the Squamish Chamber of Commerce, where much of my desire to enter politics was born. Most recently, I was an Operations Supervisor with Canada Post prior my early retirement in July 2018 in order to run in this election.
As a relative newcomer to Osoyoos, I bring with me a non-biased, fresh set of eyes, with a keen sense of passion for local business and community involvement.
I believe in an open, transparent government and welcome input and feedback from every citizen. We are far more alike than we are different, so let’s work together. We can make a difference.
I look forward to the opportunity to represent the citizens of Osoyoos at the municipal level.
On October 20th, get out and VOTE. It’s your right as well as your responsibility.
