Province shuffles strike savings By Janine Workman THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Money saved from a threeday teachers’ strike last month will spent on improving special needs services, the province has announced. In all, $37 million was saved – $375,000 in the Coast Mountains school district alone. Education minister

George Abbott said $30 million will be going to the province’s Learning Improvement Fund and $7 million will be available directly to school district’s for specific priorities. That’s not exactly what the Coast Mountains school board said it wanted to do with the money it didn’t pay teachers during the strike.

At the March 14 school board meeting, school board trustees decided to send a letter to the province requesting to keep all of the money. Board chair Art Erasmus had said at the time that additional costs incurred from the strike could be offset by the savings. He explained these costs were primarily the

Back to normal

mileage of district staff, as they drove to schools upwards of three times each day to perform supervision duties that teachers were refusing to do as a part of their job action. Still, Erasmus said last week he was still pleased because the money is going to go toward students through the improvement fund.

Help a child grow healthy.

By Janine Workman THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - School times are back to normal this week in the Coast Mountains school district for the first time since October. The district had cancelled morning recess last fall after saying its non-unionized managers could no longer keep up supervision. Teachers had been refusing to supervise recess and undertake other duties because of their contract dispute. Without recess, schools started late. Teachers were ordered back to doing supervision and other duties March 15 under Bill 22.

“We’re not getting it back for our district, but we get it back to spend on special needs students, and that’s good,” he said. He is still waiting for details on exactly how school districts will spend the remaining $7 million. Karen Andrews from the Terrace and District Teachers’ Union was disappointed in the

news, saying the school district will have to fight to get the money from a provincial pot now. “That money is going to have to be divided among all of the school districts,” she explained. “We (teachers) feel that the Learning Improvement Fund is going to pit classes and schools and school district’s against each other. They’re all

going to have to fight for this tiny amount of money.” An additional seven million dollars saved during the strike will be distributed to school boards across the province, but Erasmus said is it unknown how much this district will receive, and what kind of stipulations the money will come with.

Kitimat store closing down

flying fish

By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - It’s with heavy hearts that Linda and Ken Pitzel lock the doors at Book Masters/The Source, one of the iconic stores of City Centre Mall. In business for 15 years they are forced to close after The Source used a clause in their contract with Linda and Ken to pull the plug with 90 days notice. While that specifically didn’t mean they had to close shop entirely – the Book Masters side is their own business – with the book sales industry in the state it’s in, not just locally but globally, they said they just couldn’t afford to keep the business going. “The Source side supports the book side,” said Ken, who joined Linda in running the business later, after he left a previous job. He admitted that book sales isn’t a viable business in today’s world. Despite that, the two were set to continue operating the business as usual – they were only two years in to a five year contract with The Source. Linda said what the corporate side is doing is going ahead with their own store in the mall. “They didn’t tell us that but if you go to their [website] they’re advertising for Kitimat employees and managers,” she said. Book Masters/The Source employs seven people in total, including Linda and Ken, and Ken said that there is no formal program to transfer the employees to the new The Source store, so anyone interested would have to apply. Linda and Ken said they would have been very willing to work amiably with The Source but their treatment from head office has left them sour. Notably the two weren’t even informed of The Source’s intentions until rumour hit them that The Source was looking for retail space in the mall. On that talk, Linda called head office and the very next day received a reply, over the phone then in the mail, telling them they had 90 days. “It was unexpected, it was quick. All we can do is concentrate on trying to get this closed and then we’ll just have to go from there,” said Linda.

Last year’s team celebrates a successful season at the awards dinner.

Prince Rupert Football Club set for new season, June tournament By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - With spring in the air the sports scene shifts from the ice to the grass with soccer, golf and softball among the activities getting underway. One of the first major events of the year will take place on June 1, 2 and 3 as the Prince Rupert Football Club invite players from around the region to town for a tournament. The team is hoping to have 20 teams – 16 men’s teams, six women’s teams and four youth teams - competing at Patullor Field, Roosevelt and Charles Hays fields. The tournament typically takes place in Port Edward during Seafest, but team co-founder

Vern Barker says the decision was made to move it up to bring economic benefit to the community outside of the busy Seafest weekend. “We want to give back to the community, because if it were not for the community there would be no Prince Rupert Football Club,” said Barker, adding that the team is willing to help out with work around town for a donation. The club is hoping to have registrations received by the Tuesday before the tournament so that the draws can be done up in time for the Friday kick off. Last year was the inaugural season for the team, which was made up of players ranging in age from 16 to 52, and it was quite a successful one. The

PRFC finished first in two tournaments, including going undefeated in their first competition and winning the Seafest tournament at home, finished second twice and finished third twice. This year, with one year under their belt, Barker expects the team to do even better as the season progresses. Right now the team is working to raise funds for new soccer nets, which would be placed at the field at Roosevelt so there is another location for games and practices in the community. The goals have been estimated to cost between $6,000 and $7,000. For more information on the team or the tournament, call Barker at 250-600-1213 or e-mail vernonguyawareness@hotmail. com

The Kitimat Leisure Services Department is offering a ONE TIME TRAINING SESSION for those 16 years and older who want to be part of the

DOK Lifeguard Staff.

Contributed THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - Join the Kitimat Concert Association for an evening of rollicking Gypsy Jazz and close their season with Denis Chang. Denis Chang has a music degree from McGill University and has been greatly influenced by Django Reinhardt, who is considered a pioneer of jazz guitar. His style is known for its lightning quick rifs and emotive playing and remains the inspiration behind Gypsy Jazz. Denis has shuffled between Canada and Europe, attending festivals and studying with well-known gypsy players like Fapy Lafertin of Belgium and Ritary Gaguenetti of France. Denis says the gypsy players he befriended while travelling in Europe, even though a lot of them didn’t know anything about music theory or formal training, really gave him his most valuable lessons as a performer. Denis is an unbelievably talented Gypsy Jazz Guitarist. He will have you tapping your toes to the “hot” fast-pulsing rhythms and thrilling to the long melodic lines played at dizzying speeds that characterize Gypsy Jazz. Let the Kitimat Concert Association and the music of Denis Chang put some “Spring” into your step as we shake off those winter blues. Tickets available at the door Adults $27, Seniors $23, and Youths $17 or buy them ahead of time at Hollywood Video for $2 less per ticket. The show is on April 14, at 8 p.m. The warmer weather heralds the coming of Spring and also the close of the 2011/2012 season, but not to worry they are already working hard at putting together the 2012/2013 season. So far it looks like quite a variety of shows with everything from Folk/Roots to Acapella groups from a Magician to the Ballet. If you want to receive email updates on the developing season there will be a sign up sheet at the theatre during the intermission of the concert.

Quartet playing the Lester Centre By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - During the afternoon of Sunday, April 15, the Prince Rupert Concert Society will be presenting the Denis Chang Manouche Quartet at the Lester Centre of the Arts. The Denis Chang Manouche Quartet consists of French-Canadian front man Denis Chang and his band consisting of Ben Henriques on saxophone/clarinet, Eric Lemay on rhythm guitar and Paul Van Dyk on bass.

Chang’s musical styling has been greatly influenced by pioneering virtuoso jazz guitarist and composure Django Reinhardt, as well as having influences such as Bach, Chopin, George Benson and Michael Jackson. This will be the quartet’s first time performing in Prince Rupert, as part of their “On the Road with Django Reinhardt” concert tour. The show is said to have a lot of variety to it, being multilayered with guitar, while still maintaining the ‘swing manouche’ as it’s red thread. As well as being a touring

musician, Chang also lives off of his musical talents by teaching, attracting private students from as far away as the UK, California, Vermont and even South America. Tickets can be purchased at the Lester Centre Box Office, or at Cook’s Jewelers. Anyone wishing to attend the Denis Change Manouche Quartet at the Lester Centre is encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, as there will be an extra $2 surcharge for people purchasing tickets at the door. The concert will begin at 3 p.m. on April 15.

RCMP raise catches cities off guard By Tom Fletcher THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VICTORIA - B.C. cities say they’ve been blindsided by surprise RCMP pay raises that the federal government enabled just as it was signing a new policing contract that was supposed to usher in a new era of trust and cost control. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender has sent a letter on behalf of the Union of B.C. Municipalities to Public Safety Minister Vic Toews expressing “our complete shock and surprise” over the undisclosed pay lifts, which he warned will create “significant backlash” from councils and taxpayers. Fassbender, the UBCM rep in the recent contract talks, said

cities don’t yet know how much more money – if any – they will have to carve out of their budgets to fund the higher RCMP payroll. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said she has been assured by Ottawa administrative savings totaling $195 million will partly flow to cities and could entirely offset the pay raises, and possibly even lower their costs.But Bond is seeking more details. “I am deeply concerned about any potential impacts on our municipalities and that this information came as a surprise,” she said. Toews has said cities were advised months ago that raises on the order of 1.5 per cent were possible this year but neither the province nor cities were formally notified of the details of the compensation package.

Fabulous spring clothes and great Àt handbags to go with that perfect out Bay 250-627-1010 • In the heart of Cow

Fassbender said even if the pay hikes end up cost-neutral or better for cities, the lack of communication and consultation is deeply troubling, as is the timing. “You just can’t plan this way,” he said. The province signed a new 20year RCMP contract on March 21 – ending its threat to terminate the Mounties and form a new provincial police force – after securing extensive promises of more say for cities on spending decisions. The new contract creates a UBCM-led committee with 10 civic reps who are promised much more hands-on control of spending changes, instead of just an advisory role. Cities that sign the RCMP deal can still opt out at any time on two years notice.

RCMP in the Nass Valley continue investigations By Staff Reporter THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

NEW AIYANSH Charges are pending for two of three busts made by RCMP officers in the Nass Valley earlier this year. Police have recommended charges under the liquor act against two brothers, said Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment commander Sgt. Donovan Tait, adding that the police are still investigating. Those charges are unlawful sale of liquor and supply liquor to a minor. On February 2, officers made arrests at what they called a “sophisticated crime operation” after executing a search warrant on a residence in Laxgalts’ap (Greenville). Police seized nearly $3,000 in cash, two firearms and 24 grams of “rock” cocaine, reported police at the time. Also seized were seven unopened 18-pack cases of beer, three cases of vodka and a flat of coolers, said police. The residence was well-known for bootlegging liquor, trafficking drugs and other illegal activity, said police. Counterfeit money was also found and was believed to be distribut-

ed as change to unsuspecting buyers, said police. In another high profile case, no charge recommendations are being forwarded yet but police continue to investigate after they raided a residence also used as the Greenville postal outlet. “The suspects are in different stages of treatment and there will be some ‘cultural sanctions’ I believe as well,” said Tait of the results of the case so far. On February 10, three adults and a youth were taken into custody after officers executed a search warrant on the residence. The search confirmed “heavy drug activity” inside the house and officers found evidence of cocaine there, Tait said at that time. Police also seized an undisclosed amount of cash from the residence, added Tait. The four people were released as they hadn’t been charged yet and police continue to investigate, he added. Postal services were moved to the Greenville band office. Canada Post spokesperson John Caines said later that its Greenville postmaster had resigned and a new one was being sought.

Meet SARGE! He's a handsome, athletic, and very trainable Shepherd/Husky Cross. Sarge is approximately 1 1/2 years old. He needs some training, but has responded well when out on training walks with volunteers and is very food motivated! Sarge still needs to be neutered, but despite this he gets along with most dogs. He is up to date on his vaccinations and deworming.

Meanwhile, police will be forwarding charge recommendations in the near future after a bust at another Greenville residence, said Tait. On February 24, police executed a search warrant at a residence and seized 163 dime bags of marijuana individually packaged with an estimated street val-

ue of $1,600 and nearly $400 cash in small denominations, reported police at that time. A man who lived at the house, which was well-known to police, was arrested, said police. Police described the residence as a brisk, street level, marihuana sales operation, said Tait said at that time.

Police will be seeking charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, added Tait. RCMP officers in the Nass Valley are responsible for patrolling the valley’s four main villages which are 100 kilometres apart. The main RCMP detachment is in New Aiyansh.

Whitewater beckons thanks to new book Helping you. Live your life. THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - A labour of love begun in 1995 has come to life in a guide to northwest whitewater paddling. Author Tania Millen of Terrace says life got in the way when she began researching “Rockin’ Whitewater” but the guide to what many classify as world class paddling is now out. The guide lays out 47 whitewater runs and 10 playspots encom-

Different justice method returns By Margaret Speirs THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Restorative Justice training has returned as Terrace RCMP have now trained 13 people as facilitators at sessions here March 30 to April 1. A restorative justice forum is a method by which victims, offenders, and community address the harm caused by crime, with the goal of achieving a fair outcome agreed upon by everyone. A trained facilitator organizes and leads this process and it’s an alternative to more formal justice methods. “The group [of facilitators] is eager to put to task what was learned,” says Terrace RCMP Const. Angela Rabut. Referrals can come to the group from the RCMP, the courts, the schools, community groups and agencies, or anyone. There is no cost for a restorative justice forum. If you have an incident or matter that needs resolving, contact the Terrace Restorative Justice Program coordinator Sandy Pringle at 250-631-7282 or Const. Angela Rabut at 250-638-7429. On May 2, the Terrace Restorative Justice Program will hold an information session at Ecole Mountainview at 7 p.m. STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PRODUCTS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PR S BR S ST S ® CA S DE S BR S ST S CA CA S

Kitimat businesses recognized By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - The best and brightest of Kitimat’s business scene were recognized at the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards last Friday. Practically stealing the show was J. Oviatt Contracting, which took Construction Business of the Year, Community Booster Award, and general Business of the Year.

A feather in the cap for the owners of Book Masters was Retail Business of the Year, the first time they’ve won after many years of nominations. What’s in Store? Thrift Store got noticed despite their small carbon footprint with an Eco Star award. The Vitality Center got some extra bounce in their step with the Service Business of the Year award. Hawkair Aviation Services took

off with Transportation Business of the Year. The Kitimat Museum and Archives received something to remember with the Hospitality/Tourism award. 101 Industries proved number one in the Industry/Manufacturing category. And last but not least, the Kitimat Child Development Centre welcomed their new addition, the business award for a Not for Profit.

PRINCE RUPERT 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 jointuse 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 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. According Abele, there are a number of problems with the prospect of simply renovat-

ing 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. 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 hold-

ing 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 sui-

cide 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. “There’s no way for all the current standards for RCMP buildings can be accommodated on this site,” says the architect, Witmar Abele.

Northern ringette takes on Canada at nationals By Janine Workman THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Two Terrace ringette players have been taking on Canada’s best this week as they participate in the 2012 Canadian Ringette Championships in Burnaby, April 8 – 14. Rylee English, 17, and Aimee Qualizza, 15, will be playing with the Northern Lights AA U19 ringette team, a regional team made up of players from Houston, Terrace, Prince George and Quesnel. “I am excited,” said English, who has never been to Canadian nationals before. “I think we have a good chance to do well if everyone brings their A game.” She said the team is physically fit and ready to go, and any skills lacking at this point can be made up by a solid effort. “The team is really good,” English said. Qualizza said members of the team are meeting with a trainer and spending lots of time on the ice. “We are working on conditioning and working out a lot,” she said. “I’m hoping that our team will do good, and everyone will perform.” Qualizza has been to nationals before, as the Northern Lights travelled to Cambridge, Ontario last year, placing seventh out of nine teams at the tournament. Last year was a benchmark year for ringette in the northern B.C. as it was the first

time the province was represented nationally in ringette by a northern team. Coach of the Northern Lights Don McMartin has been with the team for four years and says that in the last 25 years there has never been a AA ringette team in the north that has been able to compete, let alone win, like this one. The team must overcome difficulties such as hosting players that live up to 700 kilometres apart. “We have a challenge that everyone else doesn’t have,” McMartin explained. The Northern Lights is also a young team, as half the players are in the U16 category, something that will be an additional challenge at nationals, as the team competes at the U19 category. “Because we didn’t have enough kids to play, we brought up a lot of kids as young as 14,” said McMartin, who said he hopes to keep these players together over the next few years. He says the plan for nationals for the team is to simply try its hardest. “The reason these kids work so well together is because they just never quit, their heart is unbelievable.” Ringette nationals have changed this year as not one, but two teams are allowed to enter from each province and territory. CONTRIBUTED / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR The Northern Lights will be joined by on 18 other U19 Rylee English throws an arm around Aimee Qualizza during a tournament in Richmond earlier this year.

Kitimat snowmobile and hikers club open new cabin By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

CONTRIBUTED / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

Here is a photo from the Snowmobile and Hiking Club’s Facebook page of the ribbon cutting at their new cabin.

KITIMAT - Under a cool blue sky, the Kitimat Snowmobile and Hikers Club officially opened a new cabin on Clague Mountain. The new structure is the result of countless hours of effort by members of the club, and the local community. Chad Fournier, the club’s president, said the shell of the cabin was finished in the fall and members have slowly been working away to make it ready for its grand opening, which was on Mar. 31. This new cabin will replace an older one already on Clague, and joins the club’s cabin family — they have another one on Robinson Ridge, accessed from Forest Avenue. “That’s an old cabin too,” he said. “Our hope with the success of this project is to

keep the momentum and motivation going...and perhaps replacing that cabin as well.” Their new cabin on Clague is primarily a day-use one but the club welcomes people to use it for overnight stays if they need as well. There is a loft area that will fit several people, and there’s a wood stove for heat and a propane cook-top. The club is currently enjoying approximately 70 members, the highest it’s ever been. “I do know this year we have the highest membership total ever, so things are moving in the right direction for the club,” said Fournier. The club is thankful for the sponsorships from local businesses as well as the joint effort from the Haisla, the Ministry of Forests and Range and the District of Kitimat.
