◆ CITY FINANCES

City expects $450K deficit in draft budget By Alan S. Hale The Northern View In keeping with their goal of encouraging more public engagement, the City of Prince Rupert gave a lengthy but very detailed rundown of their 2012 budget. In past years, the public wouldn’t have seen a draft of the city’s budget this early in the process. It’s important to remember that this is the rough draft of the budget as drawn-up by city staff with little-to-no involvement from the council, the numbers and allocations are far from set in stone. At the moment, the budget is projecting a deficit of $456,000. The City’s revenues outside of property taxes are going to be about $1-million less than they were in 2011 because last year the City received a number of one-time grant payments that

they won’t be receiving again this year. Those grants allowed the City to have a surplus in 2011 of around $622,000 which makes up for much of this year’s shortfall, but not all of it. The City’s expenses are expected to be $24,404,000 for 2012 which is about a 0.2 per cent increase in spending from last year. One of the reasons why the City’s spending has increased is price changes. Collective agreements with public service workers mean that wage costs will increase by about 4.3 per cent and benefit costs by five per cent. The City’s energy bills are expected to be 5 per cent higher than last year, and overall inflation has increased the prices for almost everything by one per cent. The City’s two major service contracts with the RCMP and bus service through BC Transit are expected to increase by 3.7

and 3.6 per cent respectively. The City has little control over these costs unless it’s willing to scale back services levels. The cost of running the City’s airport ferry service is expected to increase by 17.2 per cent from last year. The reason for such a large increase aside from additional wage, benefits and fuel costs is that the ferry’s yearly maintenance and refit costs are being listed under the service’s budget and not under the city’s capital purchases. So while the increase seems very large, the City would have spent that money anyway. Revenues from passenger and vehicle fees are expected to decrease by about three per cent, staff believes this because there will be less vehicles going to and from the airport after construction on improvements there is finished.

◆ CITY FINANCES

Public gets a early look at the first draft of City budget Continued from page 2 At the end of the day, the City will have to make up the difference between the ferry service’s revenues and it’s expenses which is expected to be $791,000. With no major events on the horizon, the City has made a conservative estimate that the Civic Centre will take in revenues of $189,000 this year. The civic centre’s total

expenses are expected to increase by 8.5 per cent to $1,526,000. The biggest reason for the increase over last year is that the City had tried to save money last year by not replacing a retired senior worker, it didn’t work out well as expected and now the City is expecting to hire a replacement. City staff are also keeping their estimates of the swimming pool’s revenue conservative, and are expecting that the pool will take in $367,000 – one per cent less than what it actually made in 2011. Wage increases and maintenance costs at the pool are expected to increase the cost of running the pool by about 3.7 per cent. The City’s subsidy to the pool is expected to be $770,000 for 2012. The cost of running the arena is expected to be four per cent less than last year due in large part that last year the city had to spend $18,000 to fix the zamboni after it broke down. Barring the unforeseen, the city’s subsidy for the arena is expected to be $158,000. The cost of Prince Rupert’s bus

system is going up due mostly to contract increase, and there is little the City can do about it unless they want to scale the bus service back. The service’s expenses are expected to increase from last year’s by 15 per cent ($99,891) and bus revenues are only expected to increase by 0.6 per cent. Staff is expecting that the City will have to pay a $405,000 subsidy to keep the busses running in 2012. The bus system is about to undergo a review by BC Transit this year, but it isn’t expected to affect these costs. While the City is still hoping to sell Watson Island, there still needs to be a budget in place if the situation doesn’t change this year. The revenues that Watson Island brings in for the City are expected to increase by 15 per cent from last year while expenses are expected to fall eight per cent, this is due largely to the fact that the City had to pay $88,000 last year to fix a broken water line to the Island. City council and their executive assistant are expected to cost Prince Rupert $267,000 in 2012; 7 per cent more than what they actually cost last year, but this estimate is $7,000 less than what they were expected to cost last year. Reason they spent less than expected last year was that a staffer retired and wasn’t replaced for three to four months, thus saving the City money. The Civic Building budget includes the cost of janitors, telephones, electricity and maintenance for the City

The Prince Rupert Fire Department is expected to cost the City a total of $2,187,000, a 2 per cent increase over what it cost last year due to price changes in things like wages, benefits, supplies, and energy. The City’s Engineering Department is expected to see it’s expenditures jump by 28.5 per cent this year. The reason for the increase is that an engineer retired and wasn’t replaced last year, but will be this year so that the department can accomplish more with the time they have. The department is expected to cost the city a total of $473,740. The Prince Rupert Cemetery is expected to see it’s cost go up by 27 per cent this year. The reason for this increase is largely an accounting change and not additional money being spent by the city. The cemetery is expected to cost the City $206,000 this year.

◆ URBAN CHICKENS

Council considers allowing backyard chickens in city By Alan S. Hale The Northern View Prince Rupert City Council is considering a bylaw change that would allow some residents to keep chickens on their property for the purpose of harvesting fresh eggs. The initiative is the brainchild of Samantha Lewis, a second-year science student at NWCC. Lewis – who grew up on a farm and has plenty of experience raising chickens – says that allowing Rupertites to keep up to four chickens per household makes for a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable Prince Rupert, which she argues lines up well with the city’s Quality of Life Official Community Plan which explicitly lists creating “a truly sustainable community” as one of its goals. “I’m here to propose a relatively simple way for Prince Rupert to become a greener and more sustainable city: by allowing backyard hens,” Lewis told council at their meeting on Monday. “Some of the most obvious benefits of keeping backyard chickens are that it promotes food security, sustainable farming practices and it also helps reduce the carbon footprint of the city. They’re effective composters, they’re also educational and provide free organic fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides. They also fight factory farm abuse; for every chicken you own, that’s one less chicken that needs to spend its life in dark factory farms.” The urban farming movement is nothing new. Many communities have been trying out the idea in BC, Canada and the United States. The City of Vancouver now allows backyard chickens and Smithers’ city council is considering the issue as well. Lewis came to the council meeting well-prepared. Her presentation not

only contained a proposed bylaw complete with a licensing scheme and zoning restrictions and a petition of support with over 300 signatures, she also tried to address many of the common concerns raised about urban chickens when the idea has been brought up in other communities. Under her system, Prince Rupert’s prohibition against the raising of livestock inside City limits would be amended to exclude laying hens. Roosters, which are the cause of the most noise by chickens, would continue to be prohibited. A single-family or duplex residence would be allowed to keep up to a total of four backyard hens once a license is obtained from the City. To maintain that license, chicken owners must adhere to a number of conditions: The hens must be completely fenced into the yard or side yard where they are being kept and their coop must be at least three metres away from anybody’s windows. They must be kept in a proper chicken coop complete with a floor, perches, a roof and nesting boxes. The chickens must be locked in their coop overnight to protect them from predators and owners will be required to clean their coop out once a week which will prevent any noticeable smell. The chickens may not be kept in a cages and must be given enough open ground outside the coop so they can walk around, scratch and dustbathe which are essential behaviours for chickens. Their feed must also be stored indoors to prevent attracting pests. The chickens are to be kept specifically for personal use of their eggs, residents will not be allowed to sell the eggs, manure or meat from the chickens, and they will certainly not be allowed to slaughter their chickens on their property, but instead

be required to take them to the vet to be euthanized when the time comes. This would essentially render them inedible anyway -- nesting hens are notoriously tough to eat as meat to begin with, If someone with chickens is violating these rules, then they can be reported to the City and a bylaw officer would be sent over to inspect problem. If someone is convicted of violating the City’s bylaw, Lewis suggests a fine be charged to the offender increasing every day until the problem is fixed, up to a maximum of $2,000. Overall, the council seemed very receptive to the idea, but not without a few concerns. One of them was the practicality of preventing people from slaughtering their own chickens for their meat. Another concern for councillors was what would happen if someone couldn’t take care of their chickens

any longer. The wildlife shelter and SPCA are strapped for cash and filled to bursting with animals already, considering that the area already has issues with strays, would abandoned chickens become a problem? “It can be an issue if people are slaughtering chickens in their own backyards, that is a valid concern... To be honest, this whole proposal is more directed towards the eating of eggs, so for simplicity’s sake I suggest people don’t eat the birds at anytime. As far as abandoning chickens, I’ve never heard of somebody doing such a thing and if they did I can guarantee the chicken would not last long,” said Lewis. Council decided to have staff contact other BC municipalities that do allow backyard and see how they have fared since the decision and what challenges they have faced, then give a report to council before the issue will be considered further.

Cullen mentioned that he would be amazed if public service jobs weren’t cut in the north. In the Federal Budget, the Tories will be providing $275 million over three years to support First Nations education and to build and renovate schools on reserves. Although this is seemingly a good idea, Cullen referred to the situation as a shell game, claiming that “money is being taken out from one pot and put into another”. “[The NDP] thought there should be new additional money, however this is not the case. The amount is far less than what the First Nations have been asking for, so on two fronts it’s disappointing,” commented Cullen. In the last budget there was a special taxation rate in place for mining and exploration. Under the 2012 budget, the government is going to kill that advantage, particularly on the exploration things. Cullen says that this deeply worrisome, as it’s been a successful program for the north, and across the country. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation will have to deal with $115 million in cuts (10 per cent of funding). What this means to rural communities in the north are still unknown. “A great concern is that a big chunk of that money is going to come off of rural radio.

The budget also saw nearly $80 million cut for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. “We’re going to have to see some dust settle first before we understand what the impacts are going to be for our region,” said Cullen. The federal government will be providing $5.2 billion over the next eleven years to “renew the Canadian Coast Guard”, however Cullen says these funds will be for new boats only.

Meet Ollie! Ollie came in as a stray on March 24th after being found abandoned at Oliver Lake. He has instantly won over the staff with his charm! He is a 1 year old stunning neutered male. He is a pretty laid back guy that will get along with other cats and make a great addition to the family. We want to remind the public that not only is relocating cats cruel but it is illegal. Should you require assistance with a stray in your area please contact the SPCA or City hall on the proper legal way to do so!!

OPINION

MY VIEW…

It’s not the time to spend on website... As you can see on the facing page, the issue of whether or not the City should invest in redoing the website so that it can be viewable on Apple products (iPhone, iPad etc...) is a bit of a divisive one. And I understand why. On one hand someone looking to invest in Prince Rupert who has an iPad or an iPhone, both popular gadgets among business people, probably wouldn’t look to fondly on not being able to find out information on the community because the website doesn’t mesh with new and popular technology. At the same time, residents who pay their taxes should be able to access relevant and pertinent information from their mobile devices just like any non-Apple user can. On the other hand at a point when the City is bemoaning a massive infrastructure deficit and looking at having to cut back on grants to community groups and spending in general, it’s pretty tough justifying spending money on a relatively functional website just so it can be seen on devices that the majority of the population doesn’t own and that come with a price tag that make them a bit of a luxury (new iPads seem to start around $400 and new iPhones at about $250). So while the City will make its decision in due time, I figure I’ll throw my two cents into the debate. The cheapest option to address this website is $9,120 to switch it over to HTML5 and make it readable on Apple devices. I can’t see, at this stage in the game, the justification for it. That is $9,000 that isn’t available to groups that help maintain the

quality of life in the city, $9,000 that can’t be used to address the infrastructure issues in town and $9,000 in a budget that needs $450,000 in cost cutting to balance. Does it need to be done? Yes, but it certainly doesn’t need to be done at the expense of important infrastructure and

community groups when the City is in the financial situation it is in. If the City came into some money or got a grant to help cover the cost then go for the cheap option, but it shouldn’t be a priority for council at the moment.

The development and operation of Tourism Prince Rupert Tourism Prince Rupert was first established as a Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) in the 1930s - it is one of the oldest in the province - although marketing Prince Rupert to visitors stretches back to the days of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. We are one of the original seven “grandfathered” two per cent communities. Whistler was the first municipality to begin collecting the additional hotel tax, in 1988, and Prince Rupert followed in 1990. As the 1990s progressed, it became clear that Prince Rupert faced an increasingly competitive global marketplace. Tourism was becoming a more and more complex industry, and gone were the days of simply opening up a visitors’ bureau and trusting to enthusiasm and luck. In 1998 Tourism Prince Rupert was created as an advisory board that quickly identified that inadequate staffing and budget at the CVB prevented the effective tourism marketing in Prince Rupert, and that we needed to join the growing number of communities with Destination Marketing

Organizations (DMOs). Tourism Talking tourism Pearson (appointed), Prince Prince Rupert was incorporated Rupert City Council, Rodney as a non-profit society on Proskiw (elected), Foggy Point November 8, 1999, replacing the Charters, and Phil Westoby CVB, as Prince Rupert’s tourism (elected), Prince Rupert Port marketing agency.

Prince Rupert Tourism Plan. This was created through a Tourism BC program which provided a skilled facilitator and gathered together a large group of Prince Rupert tourism stakeholders. After conducting a detailed study of tourism here, this group considered available resources and the community’s priorities. They decided which community groups would be responsible for each tactic, and built a manageable plan with clear, measurable goals. On the marketing side many of the tactics that were the responsibility of TPR have either been accomplished since the Tourism Plan was implemented in 2008, or have been made impractical by changes in marketing. More importantly the local tourism landscape has changed. This year the Board of Directors will gather a working group to create a new multi-year Tourism Plan that reflects today’s realities. We don’t have the money or manpower to do everything, but through working together within the community we can continue to make ourselves better able to compete with each passing year.

◆ EASTER FUN

Rotary Club and City Recreation hosting Easter events By Shaun Thomas The Northern View With the Easter weekend just around the corner, two groups in town are planning for family fun to celebrate the holiday. The Prince Rupert Rotary Club will be hosting its fifth

annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at Rotary Waterfront Park on Saturday, April 7, beginning at 11 a.m. sharp. The event will feature hundreds of eggs filled with surprises hidden around the park – with eggs for the younger kids being hidden around Kwinitsa Station and eggs for the older kids hidden around the beach area. In

addition to the hunt, there will also be some plush toys, donated by Overwaitea Foods, available for the hopeful hunters. That same day the City of Prince Rupert Recreation Department will start the 17th annual Easter Weekend events with the first ever Easter events aimed at teens. There will be an egg hunt beginning at

Letters to the Editor Council needs to see fiscal reality Editor: As a taxpayer, I feel there is a big disconnect between City Council and the reality of city finances. Our town is in debt 6.7 million dollars! Sensible fiscal management would require that until the debt is paid there should be a hiring freeze and a moratorium on any wage increase along with a curtailment of discretionary expenditures such as the Police Station and Fire Hall. I do not disagree that these buildings need a major overhaul or replacement. However with a large debt the city cannot finance these buildings without raising taxes. At a 12.5 per cent increase in taxes you have a major financial discomfort for thousands of taxpayer verses workplace discomfort for approximately 65 employees. The major renovation or replacement of these facilities should be deferred until the pulp mill is sold and we have some tax in come. Hopefully the price received will pay the debt and the taxes would go toward the new facilities for the Police and Firefighters and there would be no increase in

The Canadian Industrial Relations Board has ruled out a potential strike by CityWest workers. According to CityWest, the company was informed that members of IBEW local 337 were not in a legal position to strike until an agreement is in place to maintain lifeline services for people in Prince Rupert. “CityWest provides services that are essential to the safety and health of the public,” reads the notice from the CIRB, with CityWest noting that members of the union “have a duty to make sure essential services, such as 911, are maintained throughout Prince Rupert”. The union representing all administration, and customer service staff in the CityWest’s Prince Rupert office, as well as Telephone technical personnel working out of Prince Rupert, served its

72 hour strike notice on March 30. The union was set to begin strike action effective noon on this past Monday, CityWest says it was surprised by the move. “We did not feel that the union would take this extraordinary measure at this point in time,” said a statement from the company. “Strikes create a situation that benefits nobody. The company, the employees, and particularly the customers are all negatively affected. We urge local 337, to allow this deadline to pass without incident, and without taking this extreme step to go on strike and return to the bargaining table in a constructive way.” For its part, the union says it felt strike notice was necessary in light of a lack of negotiation. “We agreed to go back to the table April 10-12 2012, agreed to no strike or lockout provisions and to extend the expired collective agreement for talks to take

place. CityWest insisted on coming back to the table with all of their outstanding concessionary demands still in place,” said Lucy Zroback, President of IBEW Local 337. “It is really unfortunate that despite working all week with a Federal Mediator to create conditions that could have moved us to a settlement, CityWest has refused to come back to the table, ready to bargain.” CityWest denies this is the case. “We want to be competitive while remaining fair. We originally proposed conciliations and have always been open to meet. In fact, we have never left the bargaining table,” said a company statement. “Our proposals represent a plan for change designed to keep CityWest profitable and competitive. This is important so that CityWest can continue to add value to the City of Prince Rupert as a local employer and a source of income,” reads the statement. Both sides are currently waiting for Mother Goose the CIRB to set hearing a program for babies aged 0-18 dates. months and their caregiver(s) Should the union Starting on Thursday March 29th proceed with the strike, and running for 10 Thursdays the company is asking 10:00 am - 11:30 am Pineridge Strong Start customers to continue 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CHSS Strong Start calling the usual Contact Kate, Success by 6 co-ordinator for info. @250-622-9458 customer service number and to check www.

◆ MOTHER EARTH

Small group of Rupertites gather to celebrate Earth Hour By Alan S. Hale

Alan S. Hale photo

A fire at the waterfront helped save some energy as Prince Rupert once again marked Earth Hour.

The Northern View While not many people in the city turned off their lights for an hour, 30 or so people made their way down to Prince Rupert’s waterfront on Saturday night to stand around a fire and commemorate Earth Hour. Participants lit candles, a Tsimshian Elder performed a smudging ceremony by fanning the smoke of burning sage on participants, as well as another ceremony where he said prayers and sprinkled strip of cedar bark into the fire. There was singing and drumming by members of the North Coast Ceremonial Dancers.

◆ EDUCATION

Meet our new work experience student By Sydney Goffic The Northern View

always will. As part of my work experiences class, I’ve volunteered at the Northern

View. Because of my love for writing, journalism has come up numerous times as a potential career. Although

Hey there Rupertites, my name is Sydney Goffic and I’m 17 years old. I was born and raised here in Prince Rupert, like many others, and have attended Charles Hays Secondary School since eighth grade. I’ll be graduating this June. The first thing you should know about me is that I am a nerd – I have an intense passion for writing and a firey love for reading. Some of my all time favourite authors are Kelley Armstrong, Becca Fitzpatrick and Sarah Dessen; I’d say more but theres too many. I love their work, so naturally, my writing is similar to they’re writing styles. Besides being a bookworm, I’m quite the video gamer &RQFHLYHGDQG:ULWWHQE\    0XLVFDQG/\ULFVE\ as well. Like I said, 0LFKDHO0F*LOO 0LFKDHO0F*LOO I’m a nerd. Music is a big thing is my life; wherever I go, my iPod follows. Without it, I’d be lost. Most of my Open auditions (age 5-18) April 10 @ 3:30pm music consist of the new songs of this generation. Another thing about me is my baking. I don’t like gloating Tickets available @ Cook’s Jewellers & Lester Centre or call 250-627-8888 but I can make pretty Generously Sponsored by: mean chocolate cakes, cookies, cupcakes... Silversides Merrick whatever. Baking has & McLean BROADWATER always been something I Saanich lovedoing and probably

Save time, save money.

I never pursued it due to my shyness, I think my experience here will be interesting and hopefully open me up.

Education Week A first year to remember for Rupert’s only high school By Shaun Thomas The Northern View For the first time in decades there is a single secondary school in Prince Rupert following the amalgamation of Prince Rupert Secondary School and Charles Hays and the creation of a middle school. And despite the challenges that may be expected bringing all of the highs school students together under one roof, coupled with challenges associated with the current job action, Charles Hays Secondary principal Sandy Jones

says the year has progressed well. The students, she says, are doing fine and have been getting together on sports teams, in clubs and with a very active student council. When asked about highlights so far in the 2011/2012 school year, Jones says there is much for the staff and students to be proud of. “I was certainly excited about the success of the musical production, which is a first for many of the students, and all four basketball teams won zones and made it to provincials, so that is very exciting as well,” she said,

adding that they are seeing “great things” coming out of the grade nine Modern Education Class. “Another highlight is the Vimy Ridge trip coming up in April. There are 42 students and six adults going, and those kids have worked really hard for that.” This week students will participate in a “curriculum fair” to examine the options available to them in the next school year, while others will continue to get ready for graduation in June. “There is still a lot of work to be done...We still have a half a term to get through,” said Jones.

An look at the first year of Prince Rupert Middle School By Sydney Goffic The Northern View It seems as though seven months of school have gone by in a blink.

Back in September the new middle school, PRMS, opened its doors to grades six, seven and eight students. With no leaders to guide them, the students had a difficult start to finding their

“niche” among the many other 460 new students. Both the principle, Ken Minnette and vice-principle, Andree Michaud, were full of optimism about the school and students; and continue to be today.

Some of the biggest highlights for PRMS were they’re first gym riot – renamed to “winter wonder fest” too make it sound “less of a riot”. A “great leader” from CHSS did an awesome job guiding the

middle school’s Student Council how to run an all afternoon event. All students were well involved; whether it was participating in the fun activities or cheering for the team from the bleachers. The students had a great time, regardless. Another highlight for the school was its first dance. Running into the evening for two hours, the dance was well attended and dozens of parents had volunteered as chaperones; not that the students minded. David Coska, a volunteer, was the DJ for the night and had played excellent and suitable music for the students. There were plenty of extracurriculars for the students; with hope more to come in the next year. For being its first year, PRMS’s grade eight boys volleyball team and basketball team both won the zones. PRMS’s school name is “The Storm”. This first year of PRMS was definitely successful in many areas. The parents, and even the students themselves, are loving the education at the school and the variety of highlights over the year were unforgettable. And even though the year flew by, it was definitely a good one that will start the many more good years to come.

Education Week Students discuss the year so far at Pineridge Elementary By Shaun Thomas The Northern View Pineridge elementary school is one that has undergone not only a change in terms of composition, with the grade six and sevens moving to Prince Rupert Middle School, but also had an influx of students with the closing of Westview Elementary last summer. “It was a really seamless transition. The two schools amalgamated without a problem or any issues. Everyone has become friends and worked together and

learned together,” said principal Kathy Dann. “You couldn’t tell who had been with what school within about two days. Everybody became one.” For the five students present during an interview last week, some sporting whacky hair for one of the school’s spirit days, the changes have been welcome. “The playground rules have changed. Last year the primary students got to play on it in recess and the intermediates got to play during lunch because some of the kids were being knocked over. Now everyone plays together,”

said grade four student Lisa. “There’s new kids here from Westview and lots of new teachers from Westview...And it’s a very safe school,” added grade four student Todd. Branden moved to Pineridge from Westview, and he said he likes the school a lot better. One of the bigger changes with a middle school in the school district is the way the grade fours and five carry themselves. “These guys are leaders, They look after the classes at lunch and they look after the

Many successes at Lax Kxeen By Martina Perry The Northern View Although this school year has had its changes, Lax Kxeen Elementary School also has many success stories for the 2011/2012 school year. “We all really enjoy our work here. We’re quite passionate about what we do,” said principal Deb Taylor, who has been principal of the school for four years. Taylor says a highlight of the year has been the reconfiguration of schools, which now means that kindergarten to grade five students attend Lax Kxeen, instead of staying until grade seven. “It’s different because the kids are younger. There’s a nice feel and a nice energy in the school.” Taylor also brought up Lax Kxeen’s new Strong Start program, which offers things such as baby massages and parenting instruction classes. The program has been successful at the school. Another success this school year has been Lax Kxeen’s PAC. “We have a good community and a really supportive PAC. We have lots of parents coming out this year for PAC meetings, which is a good support for the school,” Mentioned Taylor.

According to Taylor, a challenge for the school has been teachers’ job action. “We’ve done very well in spite of some of those challenges. Kids are still learning and there’s a lot of really good activities going on in terms of academics and learning at our school.”

playgroud...They will take on any opportunity for leadership in the

school and they do a great job,” said Dann.

Education Week Plenty of activity at Conrad school By Alan S. Hale The Northern View There’s plenty going on at Conrad Elementary school this year, students there are participating in everything from fitness programs with a Latin twist to readings from visiting novelists. Promoting literacy has been one of the biggest goals at Conrad in past years and 2011/2012 has been no exception. In order to inspire students to read and write their own stories, Conrad has been visited by two different British Columbian authors; Eric Wilson and Caitlyn Vernon, with a third, Pamela Porter coming later this month. Wilson is a former school teacher and started writing his faced-paced and exciting mystery books such as Vampires of Ottawa and The Kootenay Kidnapper after seeing some of his young students reject reading because they thought they were too boring.

Vernon is from the North Coast, is a environmentalist and writes nonfiction for young readers including Nowhere Else on Earth: Standing Tall for the Great Bear Rainforest. Porter is a poet and novelist who has won a Governor General’s award in 2005 and a Canadian Children’s Literature Award. The students are also learning about the life-cycle of Salmon by letting classes raise juvenile salmon which they will release later this year. Something new this year is the Zumba fun fitness program which combines latin dance and exercise, and is available to students every second Wednesday during lunch hour. Conrad has also been tackling the difficult issue of bullying, something that has been receiving much more attention in recent years. Aside from an antibullying day and students signing proclamations saying that they will

stand up to bully’s the school is also working on teaching skills for resolving problems peacefully and the value of being a friend. The elementary school is also focusing on teaching students technological skills, and students in intermediate classes are learning skills like how to prepare a power point presentation for a research project. The students have even elected their own student council which gets to plan spirit days at the school, the most recent one being Valentines Day. Alan S. Hale photo

Aside from being filled with art and messages, the halls of Conrad Elementary School have been home to plenty of activity so far this school year.

The little school with big heart By Shaun Thomas The Northern View This will be one of the last years for Port Edward elementary school in its current incarnation. The large, two-story building on Sunset Drive had fewer than 100 students last year, and with the introduction of a middle school it is now down to about 40 students. The school is such that there are three teachers teaching split classes covering kindergarten to grade five, as well as two Sm’algyax teachers and a number of support staff. But the small size of the school, both in terms of student and staff numbers, hasn’t deterred the school spirit that can be found in Port Edward. From award assemblies to popcorn days to field trips to events for Halloween and Remembrance Day, students in

Port Edward have had a busy semester to date with even more to come. But for the “small school with a big heart” in sunny Port Edward, a bigger change than losing the grade six and seven students is in the air. As students learn, crews are already working at the municipal building on construction of a new school that will better suit the size of the student body and the needs of the community. Gone will be the massive building, replaced by a single-storey addition that will include three classrooms and make use of the current community hall gymnasium space. It’s a solution to the long discussed removal of a school in the community that will keep learners in Port Edward and benefit both the School District and the District of Port Edward.

Thank you! A big thank you the grade one students at Lax Kxeen elementary school who drew the ads for this special Education Week section! Your school will receive 10 per cent of the sales from ads in this section.


rG ade eights are a new addition to Annunciation School By Martina Perry The Northern View There isn’t any other school in School District 52 that is like Annunciation Elementary School. Not only is the education facility the only private school in the community, it is also the only Prince Rupert school that incorporates religion into its’ students learning. “We are very privileged to teach our faith and share it with our children every day,” said Laura Lowther, who has been principal of the school for five years now. Another differentiation of the school is the fact that it’s the only school in the district to

offer learning for students from kindergarten up to grade eight. This is the first year the school has offered classes for grade eight students, and Lowther says it has been a highlight of the year. “We had lots of parents asking for the choice to have their children continue in Catholic education through to high school,” explained Lowther. However, Lowther does admit that offering education up to grade eight has also caused some challenges. “The newness of the program [has caused some challenges]. Finding out what’s best for staff and students is always an ongoing challenge in education,” she

explained. Another highlight of the year was the school’s presentation of Little Red Riding Hood, which had students of all ages participating in. The students pulled it all together, with the play running right before spring break. File photo

Students at Annunciation School, which now offers classes up to grade eight, have not only kept busy with activities like the Little Knitters but have many highlights to share.

aM ny changes at Roosevelt Park By Alan S. Hale The Northern View It’s been an interesting year for many schools in Prince Rupert. With many student populations being shifted around as the result of school closures and the new middle school, teachers and administration have been adjusting to new age groups and the challenge of making two student bodies into one. No school in town illustrates these changes better than Roosevelt Park Elementary. Ever since Westview Elementary closed its doors for good at the end of last year, most of its students have been moved to Roosevelt along with their former school’s french immersion program. With the older grades moved to the new middle school, Roosevelt has had to adjust not just to changes in the age of their students but also their language. A challenge to be sure, but according to the principal, Susan Kobza, the transition has gone fairly smoothly, and that feedback from parents has been largely positive. “We feel that it’s gone well, the whole transition and the absorption of French immersion program. There’s been lots of team-building between classes, they’ve done swimming trips together, ski trips, extra circular things to connect on a different level – not just academically or during the day,” says Kobza. Kobza says that there was a bit of an adjustment period at

first, with some students being resentful of the Westview kids coming to their school and taking up more space on an already crowded playground. But the school made sure to intermingle the students in their classes as much as possible and Kobza says that since kids that age often make friends with kids in their own classes this has largely prevented cliques of Westview and Roosevelt students from forming. “We’ve had talks with [Roosevelt students] saying that it wasn’t their fault that their school was closed and we need to do our best to welcome them here,” says Kobza. The school has also made sure to integrate more French culture into school events as well. “We’ve been more enriched because we’ve had more things like the Carnival has come here – the wonderful three-day celebration of Carnival that they used to have at Westview...We’ve even had some guests come in such as a bilingual magician that came last week,” says Kobza.

◆ COMMUNITY MUSICAL

LIFE & ARTS from the North Coast

www.thenorthernview.com

Fiddler on the Roof performances at Lester Centre By Martina Perry The Northern View After months of preparation, over 50 members of the community presented the classic musical Fiddler on the Roof, for three nights in a row at the Lester Centre of the Arts. The all-ages cast and crew entertained audiences with their singing, dancing and acting talents while telling the story of the village of Anatevka in 1905. Set in pre-revolutionary Russia, Fiddler on the Roof revolves around poor Jewish milkman, Tevye (played by Andy Enns, who did an outstanding job portraying his character) and his family consisting of his quick-witted wife, Golde (done by experienced-actress Alison O’Toole) and their five daughters Tzeitel (Jenna Cann), Hodel (Angelica Jesser), Chava (Paula Loroff), Shprintze (Taryn Wesley) and Bielke (Emily Cavin). Throughout the musical, Tevye has to deal with challenges brought on by his poverty, the harmful attitudes of nonJewish members of the community and challenges to his long-held traditions from the romantic entanglements of his daughters. The gossipy village matchmaker Yente (acted out superbly by Margaret Logan) tries to set up Tevye’s oldest daughter Tzeitel and the communities’ wealthy butcher Lazar Wolf (played hilariously by Keith Lambourne) and after getting drunk with Lazar, Tevye agrees. Soon after he discovers that his daughter is in love with a poor tailor and childhood friend Motel (acted out by Paul Beaulieu). With Sabbath approaching, Tevye invites Perchik (played by actor Kieren Nelson), a young, idealistic man to join them for Sabbath, and tutor his two youngest daughters. After an argument between Perchik and Hodel about Perchik’s lesson,

the two dance together, breaking a tradition of the Jewish faith. Tevye successfully convinces his wife Golde that their eldest daughter should marry Motel in a comical scene when Tevye describes a “dream” he had to his wife. In his dream, Golde’s grandmother Tzeitel (played by Trudy Martin) and Lazar Wolf’s dead wife Fruma-Sarah (played by Patty Forman) come back from the dead, along with zombielike creatures, telling Tevye to not let his eldest daughter marry the much-older and widowed butcher. Now that her parents are convinced, Tzeitel marries Motel in the final scene of act one, where a fight between Tevye and Lazar Wolf breaks out, as well as dismay from the fact that Perchik and Hodel dance together at the wedding. The celebration ends unexpectedly when a group of Russians come to the village to perform the “demonstration”. They disrupt the wedding party, damaging the wedding gifts and wound Perchik, who attempted to fight back against them. Act two starts off with Perchik telling Hodel that he must return to Kiev to work for the coming Russian Revolution. He proposes to Hodel, once again breaking a tradition, and the two seek Tevye’s blessing. After his departure, news arrives that Perchik has been arrested and exiled to Siberia. Hodel then leaves Anatevka to join him. Meanwhile, Chava forms a romance with the non-Jewish Fyedka (acted by Pierrot Fillion). Chava goes to her father and asks for his permission to get married to Fyedka, however Tevye cannot get over the idea of his daughter marrying outside of the faith, and vows to never speak to her again because of her tradition-breaking romance. Some months later, Motel finally can afford a sewing machine, which means he and Tzeitel can make money. The two have also become parents of a baby in past months. However there isn’t much time to enjoy their new life, as the head of the Russian authority in Anatevka, the Constable (performance by Dan Bubas) warns villagers that the Russians are expelling the Jews from their village. All the members of the family disperse from the village, and head towards their new lives in various locations, all the while with the fiddler (played by Noah Ferland) following them. The Prince Rupert production featured classic songs from Fiddler on the Roof Martina Perry photos including “Tradition”, “If I Were a Rich From very left then Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker”, done top to bottom: Tevye by musicians Peter Witherly, Cristina Soto, (Andy Enns) tells Elaine Luscher, Dawn Quast, Denise Russell, wife Golde (Alison Jana Weir, Kristy Tillman, John Turner, O’Toole) about a Patricia Roubicek, Dennis Blake, Rumi “dream” he had; the Kodama, Jessica and Doug Hembroff, Katie characters in the play Lyon, Toni Carlson, Kevin Shrubsall and are all like a fiddler Charles Justice. The musical team performed on the roof, “trying to scratch out a 37 songs for the musical. pleasent, simple tune The production team for Fiddler on the without breaking his Roof included Rudy Kelly as director, Peter neck”. Noah Ferland Witherly as the musical director, Jewel played the fiddler in Jerstad being in charge of the choreography Prince Rupert’s proand Crystal Lorette as the show’s duction; Tevye (Enns) producer. explaining his made The musical originated from the book up dream to his wife by Joseph Stein, which is based on Sholom Golde; Members of Aleichem’s stories. Along with catchy music the village go to see by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick Motel (Paul Beauliey) that can easily get stuck in ones head, Fiddler and his new sewing machine. on the Roof entertained.
