"Justice or you recording us i am someone knows something season six available now this is mission creep. Lovely mission creek. It's very popular area for folks to cycle on and walk along with their dogs etc and But this is actually a very significant creek. In the okinawan. It provides twenty five percent of all water to okinawa lake and It is a source of fish and has been for millennia for okinawa nation for the silk people But it struggling this year so this has been a very hot summer Across this country but certainly in the interior of b. c. What has it been like for you earlier. This summer it was it was really hot. it was Yeah i you know. Have a young family. We'd normally would have been spending time at the beach and Between the fires and the heat we we stayed indoors. It wasn't much of a summer. We're actually all kind of many of us are just looking forward to fall. It was a bummer of a summer. Yeah what does that meant in terms of water in this province. May we have seen and in this part of the province in particular's stories coming into the united states of record levels of drought. What are you seeing here. So this year we had warmer than normal temperatures. We had the heat dome of course at the beginning of the summer and we had record low precipitation so between those two things we ended up with problems with our water supply. One of the other things though and very important to in the okanagan is that it is a very. It's a regulated system who put in downs and different in structures to address flooding for farmers. And the p the growing population here and that sort of thing and so it is. It's highly regulated and it is managed only okinawan lakes are only are managed to hold one and a half meters of water. That's what we have to play with in a year to ensure that we have enough for farms and that we have enough for For domestic use and for the fish coming back to our streams and so because of flooding in the last few years the water manager you know let water out of the lake in early spring recognizing that we had to be careful because we had the snow pack and we had potential our spring rains and the fresh at and we didn't want a repeat of flooding like we had in two thousand seventeen and even in twenty eighteen so we let some of the water out and then the spring rains didn't come and so we ended up where we were less than full pool. B we did not hit full pool in our lake and the drought deepened. You know we didn't get the precipitation. we didn't. We had the extreme heat with the extreme heat. People were drawing water sooner than they normally would the farmers the residents because all of a sudden nuts hot out and want wanna water are yards and need to water our farms but without the precipitation. It really put us behind At the very beginning of the summer and that has just continued. We've had very little precipitation this summer and And the drought is just continuing to worsen and yet here. We are in september now and they're still farmers that need water. Further apples and other late harvest crops and the fisher coming back to spawn and the water is is too warm and is too low. And so that's a that's a continuing problem. North okanagan shuswap. They've actually The province has stepped in because they're having similar problems and have cut off water for farmers. have said you can water. You're live you can have water for your livestock. You can use it for domestic use but you now need to stop watering your crops because there is not enough for fish for chinook and other salmon. It's a terrible hardship for the farmers but it's devastating for the fish and for the local first nations and You know we're not far off here. In the okinawan this. It's really a warning to to us here. And you know at a time when there is more and more concern about food security It's not just food security. It's people's livelihoods. Here in the okinawan. Those are potentially in trouble. We have a growing population. We're one of the fastest growing regions in canada and we're dealing with climate change and we are canada's most water stressed region. We have less water. Available per person in the okinawan than anywhere in canada. And we use almost two times more than the average canadian and between population growth and climate change. That just can't continue. Do you think people's relationship with water. And the way that they use water is to change in feature because of climate change it has to change it has to change and we you know are working with water utilities we have a campaign that we run every summer because summer uses our highest. You use outdoor watering on. Our landscapes is the second largest use of water so watering like agricultural watering is number one which makes sense we're in an agricultural region but the second largest use of all of our water is on our residential landscapes and so we have been working with utilities and other partners garden centers and trying to really encourage residents to think about what they are planning on their landscapes and being more water efficient putting in more native material That is you know we'll do well in in our climate and things need to change. And you know i do see people removing lawn in in our in my neighborhood and elsewhere i do see it happening. Is it happening. Fast enough is another question. What are you most worried about. When it comes to climate change and how it's going to affect this part of the province. I worry for what we're leaving for us to talk about future generations but future is here. I've got kids. That are teenagers. And and i wonder what what it's going to be like for them. I feel sorry for all the work. That's been done by first nations in the area to bring back the salmon you know. We're going to see differences in terms of fruit crops. What can.

"Looking in the multi. Hundreds of millions of dollars in damage to crops be if they can't be irrigated because The irrigation is all brought from the hill has how you use water changed at all for sure we used to be A lot of The sprinklers that would put out a large amount of volume of water and What we've shifted to more is Drip irrigation or micro sprinklers. They just put out a small spray of Just in the trees root zone. They're not putting out those large volumes of water but what we're also seeing is You know in in the specific black mountain irrigation area. A lot of land that hasn't been formed in the past you know was was going into cherries or going into grape so when you add dot than that need for having not secure water you know who who gets to use. It is also the big question. That's gonna be coming forward. How soon do you think that would happen. That there could be a more pronounced fight over. Who's gonna have access to that water. I think it's it's it's happening kind of right now. They'll be a few new stories. That will pop up here in there. That you know I believe somewhere in kamloops. There's some works that need to be done for to supply water to a certain agricultural area and the response from the governing body is well you farmers that are on this system. You're gonna have to pay for it and it's it's out of the scope of what those farmer skin can afford to do so So yeah the discussion is is kind of already happening. And when you talk about when the heat comes and reductions and save water while there's only so much a an orchard or farm can cut back on their water before you're you're hurting. You know the the plants and the trees what we need to ask now is what are the municipalities and governments. Doing to avoid from happening there you know various levels of government that have to sit down and then also we want to look at the concerns of first nations as well to make sure that perhaps they're looking for water in certain areas as well that we can work together in achieved that goal So there there's lots of discussions that need to take place but You know we do need to sit down and start that now and come up with a plan knowing that That are studying this more than myself are saying this could happen again and it could be worse right so that really scares me so i wanna make sure that we were more prepared for the next time. The something like this happened. Is your sense that that governments understand the urgency of that. I mean we're in an election. Climate changing there's been these huge fires. The heat wave. That you mentioned is your sense that that the government's understand how urgent the situation is for for farmers like yourself I'm not too sure. Actually you know there's less people involved. In agriculture were less of an overall voice like we're not shifting changing elections and that type of thing. So you know that. That's that's the troubling part is. I don't see why are provincial or even federal. Ill egg budgets. Why they're just so tiny. We've got some of the best farmland in the world And i think agriculture can be can be a huge economic driver. If we you know put put our thought behind it in some funds behind it and pay attention and make it a focus. I think it has huge potential So so that's where. I think the government could definitely pay more attention to for people who are on the other end of it. They consume your product. What's at stake. Do you think for them. You mean when it when it comes to climate change What should they be thinking about. In terms of people often say that farmers are are the canary in the coal. Mine when it comes to climate change so what what. What should they be thinking about. What's at stake for them. They should what what they should start thinking about. Is that food. Can you may start to get very expensive. And they might not get the selection that they're used to you know showing up to grocery store and seeing full of all the various Vegetables and fruits. You know we've kind of been spoiled with very very Reasonable food prices for for a long long time. And that's because will food can come in from other areas that it's very cheap to grow but then when you run into some crop failures in various parts then you start to notice well you know. Why isn't that in the store and somebody may get upset at the person that's managing the produce department and they're gonna say well no we don't grow that in the back here behind these doors. That flop open type of thing where you see me go back now. That comes from there and they didn't have a crop or it didn't happen. So so that's that's where where the public will start to pay attention as when it starts hitting them in the pocketbook. Reluctant thank you thank you. Thanks sue. Paul is a cherry grower in columbia and president of the bbc cherry association. You heard him. They're talking about water along with the heat in. Bc has come drought. Most parts of the okinawan are still in a level four drought that means adverse impacts are likely a stream in the south okinawan has reached level five the highest level where adverse impacts are almost certain. And you don't have to look far to see the evidence. This is okinawan lake or at least part of it because it stretches from vernon in the north and goes all the way down south to penticton and of course there are other lakes of course it are connected as well so when you look at the lake. Can you see the effects of the drought that this region is going through now. Well you can see that. The lake level is down. You can see the docks are not as The water's not as high. The real concern is if we also have a multi year drought. So if we have another situation where this does not feel over winter with like with the snow pack and then spring fresh add this does not reach full pool and we end up in another drought It could cause some serious issues.

Go into the house and grab stuff and sell stuff. I'll throw everything out so Yeah, yeah, Austin's fantastic. I hear she's gonna have a good time already Got a job at Nordstrom's, So she's off. Well, ready to go. There we go. All right, so that's what happened to curly household. The fact that Studies hint. The lack of the covert testing shouldn't deter the Washington schools from bringing the kids back in person. So the kids will come back and bury Montaigne said. What do you know? Kids come back right after the election is in vacuum, Wien, you know? Yes, Here's carriers King five. With the story in person learning, it's not a zero risk. But we see that symptom screening and other countermeasures can't be effective in getting those risks. Doctor Daniel Klein with the Institute for Disease Modeling is sharing this new report. Testing the waters. Is it time to go back to school and the Department of Health is looking at the findings as it analyzes how to get students back in buildings. We are aware and working with Okanagan County on some testing on DH, then there are a few others that are getting ready to go getting ready to use rapid covert night. Gene test results can come back in 15 minutes. Is that right? Yes, on so there are insurgent tests out there that return results in 15 minutes. It's a card and a kind of a point of care testing. It does still involved a swamp. The state health officer says they've already seen the virus introduced into schools. I think one thing that's reassuring in our data is that we're not seeing, um large explosive outbreaks. It's records show 42 outbreaks in Washington over the course of the pandemic. 110 cases have been linked to schools in that 110 about half our staff and how our students the state would like to see in person learning as long as Corona virus rates or whoa. Some districts even had plans to reopen for elementary grades last month, but had to pause because case counts. Keep climbing. Yeah, I looked at a great study. This is NPR Did this back in July. So this is the Y M C. A. Is all across the country. One of them had 40,000 kids at 1100 centers. Another one was in New York City that 10,000 kids in 170 centers, and here's what they found of all of them. This is unscientific, but they did a sort of a survey to find out how many kids 1% of the staff got infected. No one died. And 1/10 of the kids got infected, so they were said Eve, and the kids were anywhere between the ages of one and 14. So it's like Holy moly. That's little kitties right? That aren't exactly the most hygienic little creatures and even the 14 year olds tend not to be so high. You don't follow the rules, and they had him all confined and in these places and in some of the cases The parents that were dropping the kids off of the Y worked at The hospital, so they're working at the hospital. The kids we're going to the Y M C, A and still only 1% of the staff infected with covert. No one dying and 1/10 of the kid's getting the infection. I just looked up in the UK, so even right now Germany the bars are closed the restaurant to close closing this closing that school still going on, And they said, But the kids need to be educated because the risk not necessarily to their health. To their wellbeing overall, and the ability to educate the next generation is essential to society. Is. Let's be honest folks. Your kids are not learning. Wrapped in the sitting at home in front of the telly in front of the screen. That's not school. You might want to fool yourself into thinking it's school. It's not and the kids aren't learning anything. It's frustrating for the teachers. And at some point somebody has to step up and say we'll send the kids in will keep Grandma safe. The kids have to go to school. Well, yeah, like in the UK they're you know, they're kicking and screaming, but they're going into another lock down where the shutting down a lot of businesses. But they are. I think that for the time being trying to keep the schools open in this particular case in the The Seattle Times, and obviously a King, five everybody else has been focusing on from the Institute for Disease Modeling. What they say is that if there's the community transmission is low, There's not much risk for students. I think they're they're suggesting because the headline says Study hints at that we don't really know. But the suggestion is, if the rate of the incidents in the community or low then your your chances of picking it up at school are pretty low. They don't rule out that if we have high instance, like we have in the King County right now, That it's still safe. We've had a number of schools try to shut down. In fact, I have a nephew who lives in Renton. And he was on a on a soccer team. And they were planning on. They had game schedule naming practicing and then because the king County numbers went up, they cancelled It s O. They They are dependent upon incidents and I don't know we don't know enough to know if This could survive in a high incidence setting what you decided about the CIA. And that was in a high.

"Style. Welcome my friends to the storyteller who you'll find first nations people from across native North who are following. Jesus Christ without reservation. Veronica has had her share of hardships. She knows what abuses what it's like to hide in fear and the grief of losing unborn children but through it all. She has found hope and strength. And God. Hi I'm Rhonda I'm overly. I'm originally from Upper Nicola Indian band which is near Merit BC. The reserve is in two parts called co Shanna and sleek. I lived oncle. Shanna I was born out of wedlock and was rejected by my biological dad. That was a really hurtful thing. Actually it really ripped my heart tore my heart and at the same time. I almost felt some anger towards that and knowing that this biological dad lift only an hour away from me and never tried to calm here. Never tried to write to me is a really really hurtful thing to know about and then meeting them again later in my life. I met him in person and again I was rejected but to me. A I've forgiven him. I pray for him that he will come to the lert someday. But through God's help I think he helps me to not to carry that on in my life as a kid I remember. I really enjoyed being by myself. I fold up my mom's laundry rather was cleaner. Not put it in that dressers and they. I'd like to help her with housecleaning him. Taking the bread dough of her fingers a sweeping the floor with a humongous. Brunner was taller than me. And and meanwhile my sister that was four years younger than me was a tomboy and she liked to go and bury dead. Animals can go and play cars. That can make my pies and my other sister was too young to go. She was inside and the members of my family they drink alcohol and so that was a really scary part of my life and I didn't see any good results of alcohol for example like my grandpa always came home when when he did come home drunk. He showed his anger and that's when his resentment came out. My grandma and my mom were abused because of that and then we hid away in fear until he would fall asleep and I just even. It's so clear even to this day. How scary it was. And I didn't think that was a good thing for your child. Go through and and I ended up having nightmares. I I'd be trying to crawl crawl up the walls or something trying to get away from my grandpa and finally my mom had met a special man in her life and we moved in with him and he taught us a child's prayer and that was when I was nine years old. During that time I went to Kids Bible Club. There's a missionary from North American Indian mission shared a kids club and I was told that I accepted the Lord but to me I was really wasn't sure of my decision. So at the age of Lebanon. Twelve say didn't really understand the Bible but my mom sat down with me and she read versus me. And that's when I accepted the Laurie would they mean by accepting the lured into my life. Just recognizing that I am a sinner in that that I need to be saved. That can't save myself from my own sense. And so just knowing that guy sent his only send to come on earth in human form is a baby to eventually grew up to be a man and to die for for my sins die so that we could be cleansed by that I could be cleansed. His yet he died and then he rose again in three days. And that was God's gift to US although I don't deserve the lured saving me. He saved me because he loved me. And he's the guy that didn't reject me. Lert really blessed me with an awesome Stepdad.

"Though. Morita the question of when it comes on when you're younger than athlete will. Your bigger during the goal is to achieve. Actually I was just thinking about this. I used to have this like. I don't know way back when when you had like. Msn Messenger thing or ICQ like those instant messaging things on your computer like my little bio thing was like pro volleyballer end like it was kind of a joke. 'cause like I didn't even know what that meant at the time. Just like yeah. That sounds good. Like Appropriately but had no idea like how it was going to get there what that bed so I guess I was always like kind of an idea in the head but actually was kind of a nerd in high school actually was planning to be a chemist I went to university with the intention of that and volleyball took over my life so okay so when you say you're going to be him if like how do you feel that working out like Nafta type stuff like why can't we be wasn't entirely sure but I just chemistry high school. I started my first year at college in my hometown. Action with the intention doing or years volleyball but graduating ending chemistry after the whole course life change. That's awesome so so you had your MFN bio theme Pro Volleyball Claire. So when you wrote that in life started happening had you start thin are i. How can I make this reality? Yeah I think Actually like I was just trying to remember when I started playing volleyball. I think I was about while which is crazy now to think about says while is actually been two decades now. I've been playing volleyball thirty. Two ounce so yeah. It's Kinda crazy but I think the starting kind of jump off point for me was when I made team be see from. Abc and I made that provincial team when I was like or teen I think and Is your calling you very raw. Was the word they used for Terrible but I jumped really high back then. I guess I'd potential so they took me and I didn't interview That year the year after something for them I think it had something like one day. I WANNA wear like a maple leafs on my back in fourteen candidate ahead said that Ben in nearly no like what it took to get there but eventually became a path so dover I know there's Tony was the have the application you know. They say. I want to be in Olympia and I WANNA don't own and do all these things. People atoms dry. Yeah like you can't do that to. How did you keep your mind? That like may laugh at my drain on a chase them all like originally when I started playing volleyball. I didn't even really WANNA play Bible like I started dance when I was like three years old. So I dance all the way up until the end of my high school. And my mom had kinda like encourage Mir Gently pushed me to play volleyball and at the time like basketball. More which is binding workers like ended up deciding basketball's too much running for me so I ended up. I was doing all three things. That was dancing. Anos playing volleyball and basketball into high school and then I can window basketball and then faced out dance. Bowling Ball's seemed like a better future option to go with so I started college. I graduated sixteen so a super young and I had offers to go to other schools like in the states and other Kadian universities ended up wanting to just stay home and I had really good the program at it was actually called back in but it's the UCLA now University of British Columbia Okanagan so that was in Colona and the coach was Steve. Manual was one of my mentor coaches still to this day. He kind of had a big role to play in my progression volleyball. So after my first year there recruited to go to U B C in Vancouver with Doug Rhymer in his team and it was kind of scary. Move to consider and I went to a two years with Steve Cohen than ended up making a transfer to UC Vancouver in coober into the it's called CIS fact then it's like all changed Old Sport now like a Canadian University system so I ended up going there my third year and after my first year there. I actually got invited to try out for the national team so just kind of like crazy because after my first year. Ub See a lot of the players on ABC. Were playing on the national team or not was. Kinda like became more of a realistic goal. I guess you'd say and I was like you know maybe after a couple more years like chance tryout and it was just kind of a really strange process how I ended up getting a tryout and then ended up making it and as when I was nineteen and so things just took off from there. Wow so he graduated at fifteen Lloyd. just win for team into transitioning to the next level. Yeah so like when I started I was still kind of didn't really have the idea like my first year. I was like okay. I'm going to chemistry and whatever tall Canadian still pretty nerdy. Still Pretty that. I think when I got recruited to go to the CIS and go play for a UPC IN VANCOUVER. That was kind of like okay. Maybe things can kind of progressing go ahead and they gotta also the gentle nudge from my coach. There Steve Manual. That you know you can stay here but basically I'm kicking out because I want you to go play at the higher level and Sierra potential so that was kind of Mike Start off point in the program with Doug Rhymer Jesse Knight was coach at the time and they really Hannah propelled my career in and getting me onto the national team and then I ended up finishing up two more years with. Ub See we won two national championships back to back. Actually and then they went onto win for more after I graduated in a row but Selena was kind of the start of my national team career when I was nineteen and then just retired from that like a year ago. So I'm relying on your La- calendar something you said if you ride a story about your journey it will be. I believe instead a decade of venture. But when you when you wrote that in your mind what we've thinking it's just kind of funny actually because I saw graduated from U B C in two thousand nine and then a number of the national team and then went to play pro for my first season abroad. Enso's like the two thousand nine going into two thousand. Ten was my first year in Europe. I was in Spain and the Canary Islands with my teammates Page and it was just like my funniest stories of life and pro. Come from this season it was just like so ridiculous in so many ways home at Christmas. Like almost didn't come back but when back and finish it out and yeah just finding those kind of the start of my career so the last decade now as I go back and forth on wrapping up in this decade. But yet it's just been. I've been all over Europe late in the Philippines. It's been ten years eleven years with team Canada and yet it's just been a lot of adventures all over the world so I think that sums it up for me your password. Kobe just ridiculous. I've had to in that time. Also pretty full of awesome so going back to the volleyball in making the kind of play with higher compensation had you again was an adjustment to your mentality how you approached the game or the always the same I think definitely I mean developed.
