Architect tells council renovating current emergency buildings is not really an option By Alan S. Hale The Northern View Representatives from the RCMP, the Prince Rupert Fire Department and an architect sat before council last Monday to discuss the pros and cons of renovating the existing emergency service buildings, replacing them with new ones, or building a joint-use building for the police and fire fighters to share. While the speakers were careful not to tell council what it should do, the underlying message was clear: simply renovating the existing buildings is not a viable solution no matter how you look at it. The only real option available to council is to build something new, whether it be two new buildings or a single huge building.

Witmar Abele is an architect with KMBR Architects and Planning Inc. and has experience in designing emergency buildings, especially Fire Halls. Abele has been working on the emergency building issue for the City of Prince Rupert since last July and was the one to lead the public presentation to council. According Abele, there are a number of problems with the prospect of simply renovating the existing buildings. The first being that there is not enough space available on their current lots. Both the Fire Department and the RCMP have said that their current buildings do not meet their operational requirements and there is an extensive list of things that their buildings will need, some of which will be mandatory to comply with regulations.

For instance, even if the City only renovates the current Fire Hall, in order to be compliant with the rules, they will be required to convert its garage into a drivethrough design. So instead of having to back the fire trucks into the garage off a busy street – which is what the fire department does now – they would drive around back and pull through back doors so the fire trucks can be parked facing the street. The problem is that fire trucks need a lot of room to manoeuvre so there would need a large paved area behind the building so that the fire trucks could turn to reach the back doors. But there’s no way to fit that on the Fire Hall’s current lot because behind the building is a shear cliff with the Crest Hotel’s parking lot on top of it. See Sites, page 2

◆ EMERGENCY SERVICES

Sites can’t be expanded to meet operational, safety needs Continued from page 1 The same problem faces the RCMP building. In order to meet current RCMP standards, the station must expands its secure area to include interview rooms, and at least two holding cells and 10 regular cells, which must meet suicide prevention standards. Currently, the RCMP building has one holding cell and three regular cells that even the detachment’s leader says are dangerous suicide risks. “In the last year there have been two suicide attempts in our cells. The risk is real, it’s not something we’re making up and it does put people in our custody at risk,” Inspector Bob Kilberry said. In order to bring that building up to even the minimum requirements set out by the police would require a 7,000 square-foot extension which means the building’s footprint would spill out beyond its property lines. This is further complicated by the fact that there is a public lane that cuts through the property that is used by residents living on 5th Avenue, thus limiting the space available even further, unless the City wants to close it off. “There’s no way for all the current standards for RCMP buildings can be accommodated on this

site,” says the architect, Witmar Abele. But council wasn’t so sure. Councillor Joy Thorkelson floated the idea of saving space on the current lot by having underground parking for police vehicles. RCMP representative Eric Miller explained that the RCMP doesn’t use underground parking facilities for security reasons, explaining that it would make an attempt at bombing the police building more destructive. Another solution proposed by councillors was to build on top of the buildings rather than outward in order to save space, but that leads into the next problem for renovating the current emergency buildings: the buildings themselves aren’t in very good shape to begin with. As described at the previous meeting the structural problems with both buildings are numerous, and Abele points out that both buildings do not meet structural standards for buildings that are needed to withstand an earthquake; a big problem for a town in seismically active area. With all of the problems the RCMP faces, Abele says that to renovate it and bring it up to standards would involve “gutting it down to the bones” and rebuilding most of it. He’s even less optimistic about the possibility of renovating the Fire Hall. “Putting any money into this building is throwing good money after bad,” says Abele. If council decided to go ahead with renovating the buildings, it would have to be in phases since the police and fire department are essential services, they obviously can’t shut the buildings down while renovations are happening, which would draw the process out making it more expensive. When you add all those factors up, says Adele, the cost of renovating starts to come close to the cost of just building a new one, only you get worsequality building at the end of it. Although he didn’t provide any estimates of the costs of doing either.

RCMP warn of emerging telephone scam Contributed The Northern View The Prince Rupert RCMP would like to warn the public of an emerging telephone scam in which an unknown caller states they’re a lawyer for the victim’s loved one and they require payment to bail family member out of jail. On March 22nd, 2012 the Prince Rupert RCMP received a complaint with regards to a telephone scam. The victim stated that they had received telephone call from a person using the name “Richard Wiseman” who alleged that they were the lawyer for the victims great granddaughter. The caller then advised that the great granddaughter had been arrested in Montreal and that a cash bail of over $2,500.00 was required to have them released from custody. The caller then put a female on the

phone who introduced themselves as the great granddaughter, and provided fake details about the incident. After the introduction was made the caller was put back on the phone and advised that the payment could be made through any Western Union using the following details: Receiver: William Shields Transaction Number: MTCN 233-4344350 Available in: Oka, Quebec The victim in this instance proceeded to a local Western Union to forward the cash bail request. During the transaction the teller who had been familiar with telephone frauds advised the victim to get in contact with their great granddaughter and confirm the details with them. Upon making contact the victims great granddaughter she advised that no such incident had taken place and that

she did not require any money. “As a result of this incident the victim did not pay any money and was not defrauded”. Stated Cst.

◆ ADAPTABLE COMMUNITY

Movement wants to prepare Rupert for a post-oil world The Northern View If you drive, then you’re probably aware that lately the price of gasoline seems to be on a never-ending climb upward. Gas prices across the country – and the world – are closing in on record highs. In Prince Rupert prices reached $1.40 per litre before the Easter weekend and economists are expecting them to continue climbing. The Bank of Montreal is saying that Canadians should be ready for the possibility that prices could reach $1.60 this summer. That prediction is already a harsh reality for those living on Haida Gwaii though, where the price of a litre of regular gasoline in Skidegate is $1.61. Just as many Ruptertites are feeling a sharp pain in their wallets caused by changing nature of the Oil and Gas Industry, a home-grown movement is emerging with plans to spend the next decade preparing Prince Rupert so that it can continue to exist in a post-oil world: Transition Prince Rupert. The expressly non-political movement has been in the planning stages for over a year-and-a-half and is a local off-shoot of the Transition Towns movement that was originally started in the UK by a professor named Rob Hopkins. Since then the movement has spread across the globe and groups exist in cities as close as Vancouver and Smithers.

“It’s about creating a resilient community that has the adaptive capacity to respond to the challenges of climate change and economic instability. We’re not replacing economic development per se, we want to work along side it,” says Lee Brain, the Chair of the Transition Prince Rupert Steering Committee. Brain says it’s plain to see that the days of cheap, plentiful oil are a thing of the past, which has much wider implications than just the price at the pump. It’s the goal of Transition Prince Rupert, he says, to make sure that the City will be able to adapt to the changes that are coming in the next several decades. “While we still have those resources, we need to start preparing ourselves for this inevitable time in the 21st century when there’s going to be lots of shortages in many different supplies globally. So resilience and adaptability are the two main keywords here,” says Brain. Transition Prince Rupert has some admittedly lofty – if not outright idealistic – goals. Over the next five to ten years they hope to slowly change Prince Rupert in many fundamental ways into a community that can withstand whatever economic or environmental crisis is thrown its way. If Transition Prince Rupert is as successful as they hope to be, the Prince Rupert of 2020

will be a very different place. trying to say ‘lets all run into the bush, hold “If I were to think of the 2020 Prince hands, sit by a fire and sing Kumbayah until Rupert, I’m thinking of local energy, local the sun rises.

DEVELOPMENT OF A PROVINCE-WIDE PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR BC HYDRO’S FACILITIES

The purpose of the proposed Pest Management Plan (PMP) is to control vegetation within BC Hydro facilities, including substations, capacitor stations, microwave sites, repeater stations, data collection sites helipads, office buildings, and storage yards, pole yards, switchyards, dams, reservoirs, dikes, spillways, diversion channels, penstocks, hydroelectric generating stations, thermal generating stations, diesel generating stations, gas turbine stations, cable termination sites, gravel pits/quarries, leased lands for generation development drill sites, till sites, rinse stations, climate stations, existing and proposed transportation corridors and access roads to facilities, using the principles of integrated pest management. The vast majority of these sites are fenced compounds and restricted access areas. The pest management methods proposed for use include: tree removal, girdling, mowing, weed-trimming, hand-pulling, pruning, grass-seeding, parasitic insects (bio-control) and herbicide application.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

It’s time to really sell Prince Rupert May is coming up, and usually that means that around the middle of the month the first cruise ship of the year pulls in, kicking off what is a summer full of cruise calls. Obviously that is not the case this year, with Norwegian Cruise Lines moving their weekly ship to Victoria and Royal Caribbean pulling out before that. So while there may be fewer cruise ships coming to Prince Rupert this season, that has the effect of increasing the importance of each ship that does visit. Realistically I don’t think Norwegian Cruise Lines will be coming back to Prince Rupert any time in the near future, though I could see it in the distant future. But there are a lot of other cruise lines out there, and you can bet they’ll be keeping a close eye on what Prince Rupert does and what the passenger and cruise line feedback is from the handful of ships that come to town this year. One way to look at it is this: The cruise lines are customers of Prince Rupert and we need to sell them on the product that we’re offering. Using that analogy, if you wanted make a major purchase you would read the reviews from other people who have tried the product out, check out reviews of similar products and you would probably stop by once or twice to check it out for yourself - you know, kick the tires a bit. That is pretty much where Prince Rupert is at right now. Our cruise customers know about us and know about the

product, but they’re doing their due diligence and a few are coming to take Prince Rupert for a spin to see how it fits with their wants and needs. If we can have a really strong showing for the cruise lines that call on Prince Rupert this year, they’re

more likely to choose the town for future stops. It’s going to take a community effort, but if we can pull it off on May 4 and later this year the rewards for Prince Rupert in the years ahead could be huge.

Looking back at the era of sternwheelers on the Skeena There are two lovely little scratch-built models of sternwheelers in the Museum of Northern BC, one of the Port Simpson, and the other the Caledonia. They represent an exciting part of Prince Rupert history. The first exploratory steamboat trips on the Skeena were by the Union and then the Mumford in 1864-1866, but the sternwheeler era really started with the 1891 launch of the Hudson’s Bay Company’s first Caledonia. Robert Cunningham at Port Essington then brought in the Monte Cristo and thus launched a brief but intense period of competition with the HBC. The Company added the Strathcona, but when Cunningham commissioned the Hazelton the HBC countered with the Mount Royal. The competition grew out of hand. In the race to be the first up the Skeena in the spring of 1904 Captain John Bonser on the Hazelton had a lead start, but Captain S.B. Johnson on the Mount Royal caught up while the Hazelton was wooding-up. They ran neck-and-neck, the Mount Royal gradually taking the lead until Bonser rammed her with the Hazelton. Johnson lost control and

the steamers were finished. On September 13, 1912, the Inlander became the last sternwheeler to steam downriver from Hazelton. Most of the boats were sold or dismantled for use elsewhere. The Hazelton was brought around to Prince Rupert to become the first clubhouse of the Prince Rupert Rowing & Yacht Club, and was eventually bulldozed. The Inlander was left to rot on Cunningham’s ways in Essington until Jack Mussallem spearheaded the removal of her last bones to become a memorial at Hazelton. Although there are few visible memories of the sternwheeler era here in Prince Rupert, their memory plays a role in telling the Prince Rupert story. Travelers seek out the unique. They want to know what makes one place different than another, what defines its character. In Prince Rupert we are lucky that there are many things that set us apart. Ever since the days of Mark Twain the steamboat has been seen through a filter of romanticism and nostalgia, and for visitors the sternwheelers of the Skeena offer just that.

Rockets say kudos to Prince Rupert midgets and their fans Editor: Recently the Prince Rupert and Kelowna Midget Tier 3 hockey teams met in the Provincial Championships, held this year in Osoyoos. After playing to a hard-fought tie in their first game, both teams won all their remaining games, and

so met in the Championship Final. Kelowna, down by a goal with just over a minute remaining, managed to tie the game and hang on to win in overtime. What was remarkable to us the Kelowna players, parents and coaches- was not merely the fact that Prince Rupert demonstrated

tremendous skill and none of the ‘goonery’ that so often plagues the hockey world. More than that, it was the positive spirit and graciousness of everyone associated with the team – even in the ‘agony’ of defeat. Their team bus even stopped to ‘salute’ us with honks and

Addressing teacher conditions Editor: I would like to clear up some issues that were printed in the letter from Joe Sawchuck originally published in your paper on March 7, 2012. First of all, no teacher receives remuneration in return for unused sick days when retiring in this school district, I am unclear on how he assumes that they receive cheques of up to $44,000 upon retirement. I am guessing he has misread a recent article posted by CBC.ca. He was right when he claimed that teachers are complaining about increasing class sizes in this province just like the teachers in Ontario. The class size limit for primary classes B.C. is 24. According to CBC News, the Ontario government is proposing to increase their primary class size limits to 22 or 23. The real problem is found Bill 22, which will be passed in the provincial legislature by the time I have sent this letter. Section 14 of the bill removes class size restrictions starting in grade 4. It also removes restrictions to the number of special needs students in a class. With the net zero mandate (a policy that caps all funding to school districts regardless of uncontrollable rising costs, such as natural gas to heat the buildings) class sizes will inevitably rise. Joe kept referring to people with regular jobs getting a raw deal in regards to benefits; I am not sure what he thinks regular jobs are. I know a man who stocks shelves at Overwaitea here in town and he gets eight weeks of paid vacation every year. My father also had 10 weeks of paid vacation by the time I was a teenager. His 18 year old pension from Alcan pays more than a teacher earns in his/ her first five years teaching full time. While he has passed away, my mother still receives his full pension, unlimited free medication, dental and extended health benefits. Working teachers do not

have a benefit package this rich and many of these benefits disappear once they retire. When I worked shift at Alcan, I got more days off than a teacher. It is true that the taxpayers pay for the employers part of the teacher benefit package. But a Prince Rupert teacher with ten years seniority and 5 years of university contributes 15 per cent of his/her paycheck to income taxes and Employment Insurance, 14 per cent to pensions and three per cent to other medical benefits. None of the privileges of working in the BC school system come for free. Tamara Thomson P.S. A lot of space in the news has been dedicated to teachers; they are only a small part of our education system. Most people in the system are children.

waves when leaving after the game - for what must have seemed like an endless ride home. It is easy to get discouraged about the violence and lack of respect that we keep hearing about in the hockey news. However the experience of such a great hockey

game against such a ‘classy’ team is reassuring to those of us whose kids are so passionate about the game. Thanks, Prince Rupert – and may we meet again! Kelowna Mr. Lube Midget Tier 3 Jr Rockets

I mean, what happens if that happens for a month or longer?” Besides, says Brain, all these idea are just that: ideas. None of them have to be implemented, and the ones that are will be put in place slowly over several years. What they want right now is for members of the community who are interested in the movement’s goals or have a project that they think might fit into those goals to get involved with them, so the community can decide for itself what ideas are best suited to work with the realities in Prince Rupert. That information will be put together into a document called an Energy Descent Action Plan. “We’re going to create space for discussion around these topics. I can’t say exactly how it’s all

Recreation Department is hosting it’s 6th Annual Seniors’ Social on Friday, April 27. Put it on your calendar of events, it was a big hit last year. We had a nice fellow drop in the other day from Vancouver Island. He is spending the spring and summer here to draw and paint. He loves Prince Rupert for its’ surrounding natural beauty, clean air, and bright light when the sun shines. The fact that he can walk it for the most part also makes it desirable.

He also likes our Seniors Centre so we shall be seeing a lot of him. Fun! Our Travel Group met to discuss various options regarding seniors travel and it sounds like they are interested in taking a train trip across parts of Canada in the early fall. It is just in the “talking” phase right now but any seniors out there who may be interested can contact me at 627-1900 and I’ll pass on your name and contact information to the group.

Tie-breaker rule: With two people tied for first place, the first tie breaker was how many points the Sedin twins would have. Kerry Mowatt was closest with 169 points - the Sedins tallied 148 this season. Kerry would have also won the second tie breaker, correctly guessing that Vancouver would win the president’s trophy.

◆ RUPERT RUNNERS CLUB

Registration for Half Marathon Plus 8 K Run has began By Martina Perry The Northern View

No support vehicles will be permitted on the course during the race, except at the designated switch over location at Galloway Rapids. After the race, there will be an awards ceremony, as well as refreshments and opportunities for runners to shower at the pool being

made available. Additionally, there will be draw prizes donated by local businesses for runners who did not place in the top three. Anyone wishing to register for the run can do so by mail by making a cheque payable to the Rupert Runners and sending a completed

registration form (which can be found at the club’s website, www. rupertrunners.com) to: Rupert Runners P.O. Box 22093 RPO Downtown Prince Rupert, B.C. V8J 4P8. People can also register in person on S a t u r d a y,

The Rupert Runners Club will be hosting the 31st annual Half Marathon Plus 8 Km Run next Sunday, April 15, with the run starting at 1 p.m. in front of the Lester Centre of the Arts. “I started running three years ago… The first run I ever CHAMPIONS… did was this one, and it was such a good motivator for me and gave me such a sense of accomplishment,” said race director, Jennifer Rice, who took on the running event two years ago after the original organizers moved out of town. “When people are first learning how to run, or are getting back into running, it’s good to have these kinds of things as little milestones in their journey in becoming a full-on runner.” There will be three options for runners wishing to participate, the first being a half marathon, where Contributed photo participants will be The Prince Rupert Thrashers are the 2012 Cook Cup champions, winning the Prince Rupert running out Highway Pickup Hockey League playoffs. The new league offers people from the age of 18 and older to 16 until the Galloway play and is a co-ed league. Rapids Rest area, where they will turn around and head back towards town. “It’s the first race of the season so people are kind of rusty and stiff and they haven’t been training so it’s nice to start off with a shorter run,” said Rice. There will also be an option for duos to participate in a twoperson relay, with one runner beginning the race at the Lester Centre, with partners switching off at the Galloway Rapid rest area to continue on until the designated ending area. There will not be transportation methods provided, so partakers must have their own ride. Anyone hoping to tackle the full 8-kilometer route will be running a course out and back along Highway 16, starting and ending at the Lester Centre.

April 14, from 10 a.m to 12 p.m. at the Civic Centre, or on the day of the race, Sunday, April 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. “The long, dreary winter we’ve had in Prince Rupert [makes] it great to get out and get those endorphins going. Running is a great way of achieve that,” commented Rice.
