Study shows the impact of port operations By Shaun Thomas The Northern View An economic impact study released on April 12 by the Prince Rupert Port Authority shows the benefits derived from port activity has increased significantly over just the past two years. The study shows that the number of direct jobs attributed to on-going port operations is 2,330 creating 2,220 person years of employment. In comparison, a 2009 study showed there were 1,500 direct jobs attributed to port activity creating 1,300 person years of employment. That translates into 155.3 per cent increase in the number of direct jobs over the past two years. The largest number of direct jobs are related to rail, accounting for 650 jobs, followed by trucking with 430 jobs, stevedoring (dock workers) at 340 jobs and the terminal operator accounts for 290 jobs. The value of wages attributed to direct jobs has jumped from $80 million in annual wages in 2009 to $130 million in 2011. When the number of indirect and induced

jobs is taken into consideration, the jump is also substantial. This year’s economic impact study shows port activity is responsible for a total of 4,780 job – including 1,350 indirect and 1,100 induced jobs – that puts $200 million into the economy and create 4,550 person years of employment. In comparison, the 2009 study showed the total number of jobs related to the port was 2,720 person years of employment creating $150 million in wages. “There has been so much anecdotal evidence that people are seeing an increase in economic activity, and it’s nice to have the evidence demonstrating the true economic impact port operations have. Particularly gratifying is the substantial growth in job numbers. 70 per cent growth [in person years] over two years is phenomenal. What’s interesting is that when you look back in 2009, a larger part of the work was part time, so not only are we seeing more jobs but we’re seeing more full time work,” said Prince Rupert Port Authority president and CEO Don Krusel, noting he was a bit surprised by the growth in employment.

“When you think back two years, the traffic through the port hasn’t increased 70 per cent so the job growth is increasing at a faster rate than the level of traffic. I think that shows the compounding effect...Every additional tonne that is moved through this port will create more job.” In terms of the value of trade through the port of Prince Rupert, the number is also quite a bit higher than in 2009. The value of all goods moving through Prince Rupert was between $4.9 billion and $5.5 billion in 2011 compared to a value of between $2.7 billion and $3.3 billion in 2009. According to Krusel, the export numbers show just how far reaching the benefits of port activity are. “That $5 billion in export supports thousands of jobs throughout northern BC, whether that is loggers or miners or others. Without the outlet through the port, those jobs may not exist,” said Krusel, noting that the volume of lumber being exported is back to what was sent out in the heyday of the Fairview bulk terminal.

3,354 marijuana plants seized by Prince Rupert RCMP Contributed The Northern View On April 5, 2012, members of the Prince Rupert RCMP General Investigation Section joined forces with the Prince Rupert North District Drug Section for the execution of search warrant on Rainbow Lake Cr. Once inside investigators located a sophisticated marijuana grow operation. In all 3,354 marijuana plants were seized along with a large quantity of growing equipment. A lone male was located on the property and taken into police custody. The 59 year old male, a resident of Vancouver, has been charged with one count of production of a controlled substance and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking based on the evidence located at the scene. The accused appeared before a Judicial Justice of the Peace and was later released

on conditions. Cpl Chamberlain of the Prince Rupert RCMP General Investigation Section notes “this is a substantial seizure of marijuana and part of a trend we are seeing in northern and central BC. No longer are the dangers of large marijuana grow operations a big city problem, or only common to the southern portion of the province.” Police want to remind the public that these operations are extremely dangerous and can pose a significant fire risk, not to mention the impact they can have on the environment. The police would like to remind the people that they can report crimes or suspicious activities to the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-6270700.

Port CEO says that the best is yet to come Continued from page 1 “Lately we as an organization have talked about how we move traffic responsibly and in an environmentally sustainable way. I think this study shows we’re also working in an economically sustaining way not just for the region but for all of northern BC. We’re not just moving coal and grain and containers, we’re moving the economy.” While somewhat surprised by

the level of growth reflected in the report, Krusel says the future for the port of Prince Rupert looks even brighter. “We sit at the threshold of even greater growth and expansion. I will go out on a limb and say that when we do another economic impact study in two or three years time, the numbers will be even more exciting than these,” he said. “The best is yet to come.”

with the Aboriginal Education Committee and the Aboriginal Education Department for the Aboriginal Education Council. The annual report presented data that proves that the number of Aboriginal students isn’t the only thing growing; the success rate among those Aboriginal learners has also improved. “In most cases we’ve had increases in Aboriginal student success. I feel that’s great cause for celebration,” said Aboriginal Education District Principal Debbie Leighton-Stephens, while presenting the report to the board. “Do we have lots of work to do? Sure, but we also need to think about the fact that ten years ago we were graduating just over twenty per cent of our Aboriginal learners. Now it goes up and down, staying close to fifty per cent.” In terms of basic skills, in 2007/2008, 47 per cent of Aboriginal students enrolled in the fall kindergarten program were success, with that number jumping up drastically for the spring kindergarten program to 77 per cent. The following year there was a drop in the number of successes, with 23 per cent of Aboriginal

students meeting or exceeding expectations in the fall kindergarten, and 70 per cent in the spring. The 2009/2010 school year saw an increase compared to the previous year, with 42 per cent of Aboriginal kindergarten students successfully finishing the program in the fall, and 83 per cent finishing in the spring. Last year, 2010/2011, the fall kindergarten program saw a success rate of 55 per cent for Aboriginal students in the fall, and 83 per cent in the spring. However, it isn’t all good news for Aboriginal learners in kindergarten. In 2010/2011, 29 per cent of Aboriginal students attending kindergarten in the fall were meeting or exceeding expectations in phonological skills, with 62 per cent meeting or exceeding in spring. This is down from 2009/2010, when 41 per cent were successful in the fall, and 75 per cent in the spring. Jumping up a few years to grade four students in the district, reading comprehension levels among Aboriginal students, as well as all students in the district, have dropped. In 2010, 50 per cent of all students were meeting or exceeding reading compre-hension, with 43 per cent of Aboriginal learners being successful. T h e s e numbers

dropped slight more in 2011, when 49 per cent of all learners were meeting or exceeding expectations in grade four reading comprehension, with 42 per cent of Aboriginal students successful. Aboriginal students that are exceeding or meeting expectations in grade seven reading comprehension has grown from last year, with 43 per cent being successful this year compared to 42 per cent last year. Although this year’s number is still down quite a bit from 2009, when 53 per cent of Aboriginal students were successful. The number of all learners meeting or exceeding expectations in grade seven reading comprehension has stayed within the 50 to 65 per cent mark. For grade four writing, Foundation Skill Assessments have shown that there has been a gradual rise in Aboriginal students meeting or exceeding expectations, with 62 per cent of Aboriginal students being successful in 2011 up from 60 per cent in 2010. As for grade seven writing, although there has been a slight drop since 2008, when 60 per cent of Aboriginal students were successful in writing, the amount of Aboriginal students meeting or exceeding expectations was 53 per cent in 2011, down from 54 per cent in 2010.

◆ EDUCATION

Aboriginal students improving at the high school level Continued from page 4 Another area in the Foundation Skills Assessment is numeracy, where for the most part Aboriginal learning success has gone up. After a declining from 43 per cent in 2008, down to 30 per cent in 2010, last year the number of grade four Aboriginal students successfully completing their numeracy course was up to 37 per cent. Grade seven Aboriginal students were the only students that didn’t go up in terms of numeracy marks, with 30 per cent of students being successful in 2011, down from 34 per cent the previous year, and 40 per cent in 2009. The number of Aboriginal students that passed the Principles of Mathematics 11 has drastically gone up since 2008, when only 64 per cent of Aboriginal students were successful, compared to 2010 when 92 per cent were successful, going up again in 2011, with 97 per cent being successful. Aboriginal students taking Principles of Mathematics 11 are also earning themselves better marks, with 21 per cent of students earning an A in the course in 2010/2011, compared to 12 per cent the previous year, and 5 per cent in 2008/2009.

Another success story comes from the rate of Aboriginal students successfully passing English 12. In 2011, 98 per cent of Aboriginal learners passed their final high school English courses, which was 1 per cent higher that the 97 per cent of all learners who were successful in their courses. This is up over ten per cent from the past two previous years, 2010 and 2009, when 87 per cent of Aboriginal students passed English. Over the past seven school years, the average grade in Aboriginal students English grades have been a C. In terms of grade-to-grade transitions, Aboriginal students are pretty much on par with all learners in the district when moving a grade forward, until grade ten, when the amount of Aboriginal learners moving forward lowers to 69 per cent, down from 89 per cent moving forward in grade nine. The amount of Aboriginal students moving forward to grade twelve is 70 per cent. Both previous listed percentages are 10 per cent below the amount of all learners moving forward in those grades. The proportion of learners who complete school and receive a Dogwood Certificate within

six years enter entering grade eight for the first time, known as the school completion rate, of Aboriginal students in the district is nearly twenty per cent below the amount of all learners (43.9 per cent of Aboriginal students being successful, 63.5 per cent of all learners being successful in 2011). With that being said, the amount of Aboriginal learners who have been successful with their school completion has gone up since 2008, when 39.3 per cent of students were successful in completing their high schooling within six years. In 2011 there was a nine per cent increase in the amount of Aboriginal students with a six-year completion rate, the highest increase for the year, in one of the best areas to have an increase in. Aboriginal students have some catching up to do in terms of the first time graduation rate compared to all learners in the district, however in 2011, 59 per cent of Aboriginal students graduating were doing grade twelve for the first time, which is up from 2010’s 42 per cent, and 2009’s 55 per cent. 73 per cent of all learners graduated for the first time in 2011.

Leighton-Stephens is adamant Aboriginal Education Partnership that without the whole team the Agreement. The annual report success rates wouldn’t be this gives the district an opportunity impressive. She also acknowledged to discuss many important aspects all of the programs and initiatives of learning, such as achievements offered in the district, crediting for Aboriginal learners across the them as reasons as to why School district, as well as challenges.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

A look at social media and media... The role of social media is changing a lot of things - the way people communicate and share information and the way businesses and people interact. While it’s not necessarily changing the way media is done, we at the Prince Rupert Northern View certainly recognize the impact social media has on the day-to-day lives of people and how they get their information. We’ve had a Facebook group for a while now, but to be honest it wasn’t necessarily as top of mind as it should have been. That has changed - we’ve moved from a group people ask to join to a page people can like (search Prince Rupert Northern View). We also update the Facebook site when we update the website so that people can get the latest news from the north coast on their Facebook news feed. We’ve moved our on-site commenting to Facebook so anyone with a Facebook account can comment and join in the discussion about any story we post, and we’re looking at the current Facebook site to see what ways we can better interact with you, our readers, through the site in the near future. And the other side of the social media spectrum is Twitter. Twitter is something that seems to have blown up across the globe, with media outlets turning to it for stories from celebrities and the ability to track what is trending across the world. We, of course, have a Twitter account as well (@northernview) and anything that goes on our site is sent out via Twitter to our followers.

Admittedly I’m not much of a Twitter guy (insert ‘dang kids and their new technology’ joke here). Fortunately our reporters are, and it allows us to do some pretty cool stuff that can be elaborated on as we go. On Monday, for example, Alan was tweeting from the Enbridge Joint Review Panel

hearings, providing a live accounting of the proceedings. That has a lot of potential for other meetings. Social media is certainly a new era in communications, and we hope you’ll join us going forward as we see just what it can do.

~ Shaun Thomas

The 2012 tourist season is a difficult season to predict My crystal ball is a bit cloudy this spring. As always, we try to predict how our tourism season will play out, and if necessary shape marketing efforts to either fill gaps or play on seasonal strengths. Returning as always to our benchmark year of 2007, where the Visitor Study provides a starting point for understanding annual changes, leisure travellers provided 79 per cent of the total visitors and 57 per cent of the total tourism revenue. Business travellers provided 21 per cent of the total visitors and 43 per cent of the total revenue. These figures must be looked at through the lens of this season’s cruise traffic. The 2007 study was done in a year when there were two weekly ship visits. That provided 46 per cent of total leisure visits, and about 9 per cent of total leisure revenue. On the business travel side, cruise ship crews provided 17 per cent of total visitors and 3 per cent of total revenue. The total visitor count is substantial, but the total in lost revenue, on the surface, seems as if it should be manageable. The key phrase here is “should be.”

Even though this was tourism sector is disproportionate. less than expected, and analysts Obviously fewer cruise ship visits are predicting a resumption of means fewer tour departures, and growth in the German economy the adventure tour operators have by mid-2012, it’s unlikely been dealt a heavy blow.

Sport fishing provides The German market, for example, shrank a whopping 31 per cent of our community’s by another .2 per cent in the fourth quarter revenue from leisure travellers – and that was

measured in a year when guided trips were substantially reduced by a landslide closing Highway 16 early in the season. The cumulative result of these things suggests that we should be very cautious this year, and that both angling and general overnight leisure travel could be problematic. Yet there is a positive side. Remember that 43 per cent of total tourism revenue in 2007 (minus the 3 per cent accounted for by cruise ship crews) came from business travellers. With increased activity and construction on the industrial side, all anecdotal information I have suggests that we will see a very strong year for business room nights. And make no mistake – these are tourists; valuable, longterm tourists, who spend considerably more than most leisure travellers. The trick for us this year will be to do our best to convert on these visitors, to encourage their increased enjoyment of our restaurants and get them sampling some of our other experiences. Next week I’ll take a look at how we might do that, and what TPR might be able to do to help.

• ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING •

Businesses need to get cruise friendly Editor: I agree with the editorial in your April 11th newspaper (“It’s time to really sell Prince Rupert”) that said our whole community should work together to welcome the passengers of the Holland America cruise ship on Friday, May 4th. People in our community have a lot of good ideas. One of the best ideas is making our city a nice cruise port. But turning ideas into action takes hard work and dedication. I know this from personal experience. My husband and I have operated Fairview Restaurant on 3rd Avenue for more than twenty-five years, as well as the former Fishermen Co-op for 12 years in the 1970s. As part of the business community and members of the Prince Rupert Chinese Association, we are excited about what is possible if we work to welcome cruise ships. Last week I learned about the “Cruise Friendly Business” program, which is sponsored by the Prince Rupert Cruise

Task Force group. This is a program that gets local businesses to stay open all day on May 4th, and to show a poster in the window welcoming guests to come inside. Some businesses can have special deals for cruise visitors. Fairview Restaurant is proud to be a Cruise Amy Wong Friendly Business this year. We’ve lived here for a long time (48 years short!), and we remember when the cruise ships visited a lot more often. But this is our first time to make such a public statement that cruise passengers are important. If people from the ship just walk up and down our streets and see closed signs, what a shame. But what if they see windows with welcoming posters? What if they come inside and get a friendly greeting and hear that there is a special offer for them? They will tell their friends and they will tell the cruise ship companies. People will hear about what a special place Prince Rupert is, and we will get a good reputation. So I want to challenge all the

Northern Savings Credit Union holds AGM in Prince Rupert By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

AT YOUR SERVICE

Northern Savings Credit Union had its Annual General Meeting in Prince Rupert last week to give members an update on how the credit union has been doing over the past year and what it’s planning to do this fiscal year. The meeting began by highlighting the efforts of the employees at the main branch in Prince Rupert, who came into the office at night after a cold snap caused a pipe to burst in the building. These actions prevented valuable assets such as computers from being destroyed by the water, which would have cost thousands and interrupted operations. Northern Savings executives were also touting their community investment initiatives, where the credit union provides grant money to worthy initiatives around northern BC. “Our board of directors has developed a vision that really speaks to building strong, resilient and sustainable northwest BC communities,” says the credit union’s vice-president of marketing, Janet Mirau.

To illustrate the effects of these investments, representatives from two different organizations who received money from the credit union speak and give the members an update on what the money was used for and plans going forward. Marko Kessler from Prince Rupert Marine Rescue gave a presentation about their new rescue boat that the credit union donated $5,000 towards. Shaun Stevenson from My Mountain Co-op came to give members a rundown on how well their first year of operating the Shames Mountain ski hill went. The credit union was one of the major contributors to the effort to buy the floundering ski hill. Northern Saving’s acting CEO, Bill Nicholls, gave a run-down of the credit union’s financial situation. The credit union is doing well despite the tough times it finds itself in, but with that said the economic situation is having an effect. “One of the things a lot of you savers out there are not happy with, and all you borrowers are very happy with, are the very low interest rates. This has had

a very significant impact on the credit union – as well as other financial institutions,” says Nicholls. The reason for this is that interest rates for people’s bank accounts are about as low as they can be while the interest rates on loans continue to fall. The result is there is less space between what the credit union must pay out to its members and how much money it’s making off loans. “This is something that will continue for the next couple of years as the world continues to scratch its way out of credit and debt crisis all over the world,” explains Nicholls. Another big impact to the credit union has been the implementation of new accounting standards throughout Canada called the International Financial Reporting Standards. This changes the rules for how financial statements are drawn-up. “This has been a good thing because it brings more clarity to what your actual financial performance for the organization is. In prior years we had a lot of volatility to our reporting of the bottom line,” says Nicholls.

In anticipation of these new standards, the credit union grew its cash assets by 14 per cent to $863-million in 2010, in 2011 those assets shrunk by 0.6 per cent to $858-million “During 2011, once we reached a certain level that we were wanting to achieve, we Alan S.

◆ TOURISM

Cruise Task Force attracts unexpected level of interest Contributed The Northern View An initiative of Prince Rupert’s Cruise Task Force has won unexpectedly high levels of interest from members of the city’s business community. The Cruise Friendly Business program, introduced this year in advance of the May 4th visit by the Holland American Zaandam, encourages local retailers to keep their doors open until the early-evening departure of the cruise ship. Businesses that are part of the program will display a poster welcoming guests. They also receive an opportunity to advertise a special offer for cruise guests. The offers will be advertised in a city activity guide distributed to passengers.

“I’m looking forward to May 4th, no doubt about it,” said Michel Gauthier, butcher and owner of Rupert Meats. “We need more cruise ships coming back, which is good for almost every business in Prince Rupert really. I’m going to have a huge pile of jerky ready for people to sample that Friday. Anybody that comes into this town for any reason and walks into my business, I’m happy.” Gauthier and his wife Lesley arrived in Prince Rupert in January and opened their doors for business in late February. He said that if they had known how friendly the people were in Prince Rupert, they would have moved here 15 years ago. “With this ship we have 1,200 people coming, and if everyone in the community

gives their best, they are only going to remember the best things about our city.” A spokesperson from the Prince Rupert Cruise Task Force said that dozens of businesses have signed up, taxing recruitment volunteers to the limit. “If businesses have not yet been approached with an offer to participate, we encourage them to contact the Port Authority offices at 250 627-8899,” said Michael Gurney of the Prince Rupert Port Authority. Paul Mar, owner of Baker Boy, said he will have a large number of doughnuts ready to hand out to passengers that venture his way down Third Avenue on May 4, and is looking forward to meeting people visiting Prince Rupert for the first time. “Baker Boy is behind the cruise initiative one hundred percent, and

we’ve always had a positive experience with cruise passengers, wherever they are from,” said Mar. “When Americans come I have music from the Civil War era playing because it’s something they know, and people respond to that. When Chinese delegations come to town, I play music from mainland China to make them feel welcome. “It’s not hard for businesses in Prince Rupert to leave a good impression on anyone who is visiting our city.” FULL DISCLOSURE: This article was submitted to the Northern View by the Prince Rupert Port Authority

Because our mood is often influenced by the season, it’s common to get the sudden urge to redecorate when the colours of spring start to emerge after the winter. Beautifying our surroundings is akin to carrying nature’s awakening into our decor, to the renewal of life, especially as it centres around the pleasure of entertaining and living comfortably in our homes. This year’s design trends are influenced by four key factors: cute, raw, refined, and a mix of these. All these influences are inspired by the 1950s, meaning they are a combination of kitsch and contemporary. The cute element is found in carefully designed small objects, the raw in natural materials such as various types of wood and natural fabrics, and the

Spring home and garden guide The importance of a well maintained residential property The very latest in interior decorating, a home and garden that are the envy of the neighbourhood, a house that doesn’t show its age...Keeping up with this combination of factors could lead to a considerable increase in the value of your property. The upkeep of a home often just involves small yearly modifications and simple jobs. A neat exterior, well-pruned hedges, materials in a good state of repair, and a clear, unimpeded view of the home all add up to a well-maintained property and a proud homeowner. Where the exterior is concerned, maintaining the siding should be your priority, as this will protect your home from bad weather for years to come. The roof is the other part of your home that should never be neglected. For example, the state of the roof could deteriorate if moss is allowed to cover it. Don’t neglect the concrete surrounding an in-ground pool and always protect garden furniture from the harmful rays of the sun. Did you know that a well-planned yard can increase the value of your property? As they grow, the trees you plant will add to the worth of your home as well as adding to your comfort both outside and inside: trees block the wind in cool weather and provide shade on hot summer days. That can mean a reduction in both air-conditioning and heating costs. So give free rein to your gardening

Book signing set for tonight By Shaun Thomas The Northern View Local author Ronnie Ray Jenkins is launching his new book, Flowers of Reminiscence, with a book signing at Rainforest Books this Wednesday and says it is a novel that should appeal to a wide range of readers. “It’s inspirational and it’s historically vivid. It’s the story of a woman who wakes up in a nursing home 1,000 miles from home and she doesn’t know how or why she is there. She finds a journal left for her by her mother in 1901, and when she visits the page in the journal I take the reader back to that point in her life. It’s the magic of the journal that helps heal her mind and answer her questions,� said Jenkins. “This book makes a full circle of her

life to the point where the beginning is almost the end.� Published by the Larry Czerwanka Company, Jenkins is making the book available exclusively at Rainforest Books. During the signing, which runs from seven to nine p.m., $2 from every book purchased will be donated to the Food Bank as a way of giving back to the community. “By doing this, I’m trying to pay things forward. I really believe in that,...If we work together to do this little bit for each other, we can bring this town back to life. We can’t rely on the government to do it,� he said “It’s the people that make the difference.� Jenkins says that there is a massive Internet marketing campaign slated for the book, and that there may be more in the

Phylis Bowman, historian and columnist, passes away Contributed The Northern View Long time columnist and local historian Phylis Bowman passed away peacefully April 9, 2012 in Victoria, B.C. where she had been living in an assisted living home since leaving Port Edward in 2000. Phylis was a well known personality in Prince Rupert, authoring 14 books and numerous columns about the area. She was often the go-to person for verification of names or dates regarding Rupert’s history receiving calls from the Vancouver Sun to CBC. Her authority on the local history was well founded with her parents arriving from Europe in 1905. Her mother, from Prussia went to North Pacific Cannery and then to Port Essington in 1907 then onto Rupert in 1910. Her Dad, an Englishman and carpenter responded to an ad in Vancouver looking for men to clear a town site up north. He arrived in 1907 and built a home on 4th Ave East. After attending Booth Memorial and King Edward High School, Phylis worked for her father until joining the Canadian Women’s’ Army Corp in 1943. Stationed in Prince Rupert she worked in the motor pool and watched the construction of the highway from Galloway Rapids Bridge to Port Edward, a huge American base. Memories of this era later lead to one of her books “Road, Rail and River”. She married Sgt. Major Lloyd Bowman in 1945. They had three sons, Larry, Ken and Jeff who commanded her attention until 1960 when she started at the Prince Rupert Daily News. She worked her way up from the office to Women’s Editor in 1961. When her husband was offered a better position in Victoria, Phylis and her family moved for three years before returning to Rupert in 1966 where she resumed her position as Women’s Editor and then Editor at the Prince Rupert Daily News. In 1971 when the paper was sold, Phylis went to work for the Tourist Bureau. After hearing complaints from travelers, especially cruise ship passengers, that there was no one on the docks with information or direction on what to see in town Phylis organized the first “meet the passengers”. There was also music and dancing – people really felt welcome. She was at the Bureau until 1977. During those six years Phylis was working on her own publications with her first book published in 1973 “Muskeg, Rocks and Rain” a term her father used describing Rupert. From 1978 to 1982 Phylis again returned to the Daily News as Editor overseeing local stories and her weekly columns. In 1979 Phylis applied to City Council for a $20K grant for the creation of an Archive Society to collect and collate a pictorial history of Prince Rupert as well as anecdotal history, verified historical accounts, then working with her friends Barbra Sheppard and Gladys Blythe founded the Prince Rupert Archive Society. In 1998 Phylis was the recipient of the Alec Hunter Award which was named after

New hospital announced in Queen Charlotte By Alan S. Hale The Northern View After 20 years of asking the government for a new hospital, the Village of Queen Charlotte is finally getting its dilapidated and obsolete hospital replaced. The Province announced on Thursday afternoon that they will be proceeding with the $50-million new hospital in the community. “I’m honoured to be in Haida Gwaii to announce that our government is moving forward with planning for a new hospital. This facility will include residential care beds as well as space for out-patient care such as public-health services like mentalhealth care as part of a new hospital. This will help reduce the need to leave the island for specialized care,” said the provincial minister of Aboriginal Relations, Mary Polak. The mayor of the Village of Queen Charlotte, Carol Kulesha, has been one of the biggest proponents of replacing the aging hospital; working through the Skeena - Queen Charlotte Regional District as well as the Regional Hospital District for the past couple years to convince the province that it was worth spending the money on. “I think it was the fact that we were all united here on the islands, that our MLA supported us, that the Regional Hospital District – which spans from Smithers, to Stewart, to Haida Gwaii – wouldn’t talk about anything else until that got done. That kind of support went to the Minister of Health and the Premier, and I think they heard us,” says Kulesha.

Local MLA, Gary Coons says that the decision is great news and has been a long time coming. “It’s about time. The hospital has been a priority for a long time, for many people but did not seem to be on the radar of the government until we brought up the concerns in the legislature last year...Those on the islands deserve first class health care and I am glad they responded to their needs,” says Coons. A detailed planning process for the new hospital is expected to begin this spring, a final business plan will be put together and the construction project going to tender soon after. The plan at the moment is to build the new hospital on the same piece of property as the current one. The medical clinic located on top of the current hospital will have to be relocated offsite first, the hospital itself will remain in place as the new facility is built around it, allowing it to still take patients which otherwise would have been forced to go the hospital 100 km away in Masset. “Then one day when the new one is finished, the hospital gets taken down and it becomes the parking lot,” explains Kulesha. Kulesha says the new hospital will be “a huge improvement over the one they we have

The hospital’s cancer-fighting drugs used in chemotherapy are being mixed in a retrofitted smokehouse because the hospital’s pharmacy doesn’t have proper ventilation. The morgue had to be condemned because of its floor, and now families have to view their dead relatives in a make-shift morgue inside a trailer. The main building is also riddled with structural problems and only has one wheelchair accessible bathroom which is used by everyone from emergency room patients to visitors. “This is going to be a new and sturdy building built to be earthquake proof, and it’s going to have things like a bathroom per patient room,” says Kulesha. The cost of the hospital will be shared between the province and the Northwest Regional Hospital District.

during the early 20th century. As most already know the spectacular ship collided with an ice burg on the eve of the 14th, at 11:40 p.m. to be exact, and sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean only after two and a half hours. The luxurious liner had carried at least 2,223 passengers and about 1,517 of them lost their lives. Among those 2,223 passengers, Grand Trunk Pacific president Charles Melville Hays perished in the sink age of the Titanic. Moving to Canada, Montreal in 1896, Hays became general manager of the Grand Trunk Railway and later chosen as president in 1904 till his death. One of his major goals was creating a railway line spanning all across Canada. Prince Rupert started as a dream for Hays, he saw Kaien Island as the perfect spot for marine trading, and rail and sea travel. It was April 10th 1912 when Hays and his wife boarded the Titanic, as well as their daughter Orian and her husband. When the ship was struck, Hays stayed behind like so many brave men as women and children boarded the lifeboats first. His wife and daughter survived this horrific event but unfortunately he did not. Hays was 56 years old when he died.
