New emergency services building would not be ready for two and a half years By Alan S. Hale The Northern View If plans for a new emergency building in Prince Rupert were approved today, it still wouldn’t be ready for the RCMP or the fire department to actually move in for almost twoand-a-half years. That’s according to Witmar Abele, the architect the City of Prince Rupert hired to guide them through the pre-planning phase of constructing a new emergency building. Abele - who is experienced in the designing of emergency buildings - estimates that the process of designing the actual building to meet the RCMP’s needs, the City’s needs and possibly the fire department’s needs and standards would take the better part of a year.

“Of course, that process can vary wildly in the time required, but 34 weeks is not uncommon. It’s three-quarters of a year to get from the earliest schematic design to the point where we could actually put the project out to bidding,” Abele told council at the third meeting on the emergency building issue held last Monday. Once the project is ready to be bid on by the contractors who want to build it, Abele estimates that it would still be almost 90 weeks before the building is ready to be occupied. “Once the construction phase has begun, a year-and-a-half is again not uncommon. There are many factors that influence the time required for the construction phase, such as whether or not the contractor gets into winter construction or other things that might slow it down,” said Abele.

Abele was asked by a member of the public if this time line took into account Prince Rupert’s notoriously rainy weather. He said it did. Council had some questions of their own, with many councillors balking at the time line for the project. Councillor Anna Ashley asked Abele why it would take 34 weeks just to put a design together. “Designing a building such as an RCMP station, Fire Hall or possibly both of them together is a highly complex process. The schematic design alone would easily take six to eight weeks to get through, it involves consultations with the user groups. Adjustments are made to the design, it goes back and forth, and six weeks goes by in a heartbeat,” explained Abele. See Council, page 2

◆ MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS

AUCTION FOR PROM…

No tax increase in Port Edward By Shaun Thomas The Northern View While residents of Prince Rupert will be seeing a 1.5 per cent increase on their taxes, residents and businesses in Port Edward can expect no change in the mill rate. “The assessments are up slightly, so council expects to see some more tax revenue but decided not to pass any increase with the mill rates,” chief administrative officer Ron Bedard told council at their meeting on Tuesday. The mill rate in Port Edward is currently $5 per $1,000 taxable value for residents and $12.50 per

$1,000 taxable value for businesses. While the rate charged by the district will remain should fourth and final reading pass later this month, the rate for the Skeena - Queen Charlotte Regional District and the Northwest Regional Hospital District are increasing and the Skeena - Queen Charlotte Regional Hospital District rate is down slightly from last year. At the same meeting council gave three readings to the five year financial plan. This year the district is expecting to end with a $291,914 surplus and revenue and expenses more than double the next five years due to grants received for the new school, some of which will be carried over to 2013.

◆ EMERGENCY SERVICES

Council looking at options for detachment and Fire Hall The recently negotiated deal between the provincial government and the RCMP has also shortened the time the City has to make a decision on the emergency building issue. In the new deal, the RCMP only has to send two letters of notice before the province can build them a new station and send the bill to the City. It used to be three letters. With one letter sent by the RCMP last year, Prince Rupert is effectively out of time when it

Continued from page 1 Councillor Gina Garon asked if they could shorten the process by using an already existing building design from another community. Abele says that building designs are made specifically for the needs of the user groups and the property the building sits on. So unless the City can find a location with the exact same geography, and a design that meets the exact same needs of the RCMP and the fire department, such an idea was not feasible.

comes to the RCMP building, and renovating the existing one doesn’t promise to save much – if any – money when compared to building a new one. This has lead some councillors to conclude that the best course of action is to handle the RCMP’s needs first and that the fire department will have to wait. “In reality we have a RCMP building that doesn’t meet the standards whether we like it or not. I don’t think we are going to find a

site in Prince Rupert big enough to house both the RCMP and the fire department...As far as renovating goes it just doesn’t make sense,” said Councillor Garon. Before the designs on a new building can even be started, the City will need to get approval from residents so it can borrow the millions of dollars required. Exactly how many millions won’t be known until the plans are done, but a professional estimate will be drawn up to be used in the

referendum. City staff have suggested that such a referendum should take place sometime in November, with the referendum question being submitted to the provincial government for approval in September. City council also has the option to side step the referendum process altogether, in which case 10 per cent of Prince Rupert’s residents would have to sign a petition against the borrowing to force one.

◆ MARINE TRANSPORTATION

Province announces planned changes to Coastal Ferries Act By Alan S. Hale The Northern View The BC government is pumping an extra $80-million into BC Ferries over the next four years and making amendments to the Coastal Ferries Act in order to combat skyrocketing fares while keeping the company profitable. However, the government is also looking for ways to cut inefficiencies, which is likely to include reduced sailings. The move is the government’s response to a review of the BC Ferry system by Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee. In the report, Macatee makes a number of different recommendations, many of which require changes to the law, which is exactly what the government plans to do. “This is really about the taxpayer, it is about the ferry user and it is about the ferry corporation. All of us have to come together to make sure that we have an affordable and financially sustainable ferry system,” said Transportation minister, Blair Lekstrom. The amendments to the bill place a new emphasis on the commissioner’s role to balance the interests of ferry users, such as passengers and ferry-dependent communities, with that of the company and its bottom line. The commissioner is being given greater power to control price caps and scrutinize and control the company’s policies in order to keep the trend of skyrocketing fares at bay, including ordering fuel deferrals and discounts. The government also plans to tie fare increases to the rate of inflation, but it is unclear how this will affect the increases already planned for the next three years. According to the commissioner’s report fare prices along northern routes have risen by 78 per cent over the past eight years, while the number of passengers on each sailing (capacity utilization) has fallen by almost 40 percent during the same period. It costs almost $500 for a family of four and their car to go on a round trip from Prince Rupert to Haida Gwaii. Lekstrom says that while a $500 price tag on a trip to the mainland is hefty, he points out that they would be much higher if the government didn’t already heavily subsidize them. The government is planning to do consultation with local communities on what measures could be taken to

improve the affordability of ferry service. public again wouldn’t solve the issues. “I do not want to leave the impression that there will not “I think if they do their homework and have a look at be putting some pain on the part of communities...We are it, regardless of whether this service was back under the asking people to come to the table to talk about trade-offs,” administration of the Ministry of Transportation or being said Lekstrom. provided as it is today would be facing these challenges.” One option, which was recommended by the commissioner MLA Gary Coons - also the provincial ferries critic in his report, would allow municipalities to spend their agrees with the regional district. He says that BC Ferries own money to help subsidize fares on specific routes. But problems are the result of the Lekstrom said that none of these measures are mandatory, policies put in place over the and that the consultation’s purpose is to find ones that fit past eight years. within communities’ abilities. “The government spent The province is planning to decrease inefficiencies by just under $2-billion in the pushing for fewer sailings for routes with mostly empty past eight years on vessels Week of May 16 ships.

◆ DEVELOPMENT IDEA

Port authority discuss vision for Cow Bay development By Alan S. Hale The Northern View The public was be able to get its first look at the future of Cow Bay on Tuesday as the Prince Rupert Port Authority held an open house to show off its long-awaited development plans at the Crest Hotel from six p.m. to eight p.m. (look for details on the meeting online at www.thenorthernview. com). The designs are the fruition of work done by MacFarlane Biggar Architects & Designers, which was hired by the Port Authority back in November. The Port Authority held meetings with a number of groups with a stake in the future success

of the Cow Bay area – everyone from Cow Bay merchants to First Nations groups – to find out what they wanted in an expanded Cow Bay. That information was given to the architects and now the designs are ready. “The approach to the development recognizes that it’s a critical element for the port’s success in becoming a global port that we have a community and people be a part of that and be central to our success. Attracting and retaining good people [to the City] is important, and part of that is making a more livable community,” said the Port Authority’s director of Trade Development, Andrew Hamilton.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

Dumping on Wantage Road has to stop... There really is no easy way to say this: The dumping of garbage on Wantage Road is getting out of hand and is a definite eyesore. This weekend we took a trip up Mount Hays to see how far we could go, take some pictures and let the dogs have a bit of a run. Before we even got to the mountain, just a bit past the fish hatchery, there was a bit of garbage on the side of the road. Then, just before you start the ascent to Mount Hays, there was a pretty ridiculous pile of garbage that has no right being there. Among the items were couches, dressers, some old kids chairs, bags and pretty much anything else you can think of. That was the pile. In the background there was more garbage bags and other miscellaneous items. It’s an embarrassment, especially as it is right by the newly completed Mount Hays Connector Trail, and the people who decide to dump out there should be ashamed of themselves. Prince Rupert has a perfectly good landfill, and if you can take the time to drive your truck down a pot-hole filled back road there should be no problem in taking the extra step of going to the garbage dump or working out a way of getting the garbage taken care of at your residence. This is nothing new, it’s an ongoing problem, and part of that is because there isn’t a solution that seems viable. The City can’t put a gate up on the road because (as I understand it) the access road is owned by someone else, and frankly I hope a gate doesn’t go on the road as that is another lost recreational opportunity. And then there is the problem of people simply

dumping elsewhere in the community if the road is gated. And the bylaw officer only has so many resources to deal with all the issues taking place in the community, so that is out too. The City doesn’t have the money at the moment, but I would love to see a camera set-up in the area to catch the

people who are doing this and fine them the maximum amount allowed by the law. Right now there is no consequence to dump on Wantage Road while it ruins it for the rest of us. There must be a way to punish, and harshly so, the irresponsible, uncaring people who dump on Wantage Road. ~ Shaun Thomas

Agency’s board members decided to GO2 Prince Rupert Last week go2, a non-profit tourism human resources agency, held a Board of Directors meeting in Prince Rupert. It was a great opportunity for local tourism stakeholders to learn more about the services offered by go2, and also for the influential tourism industry people from the Board and staff of go2 to learn more about Prince Rupert. To put it as simply as possible, go2 represents everything to do with employment and the tourism industry in British Columbia. Their online Job Board keeps the tourism industry moving – helping businesses find workers right for them, and helping staff find the right employment opportunities. But go2’s role extends far beyond that. The various training and support services offered by go2 can help businesses with every stage of their human resources. That might start with recruiting and retaining employees, but it also can help with such diverse needs as identifying fair salary levels based on industry standards, or even

navigating the foreign Keis, CEO of go2. “Over worker programs.

These

were projected to be very much industrydriven, with a high level of practicum hours. Such a program would have not only been very effective training, but would also have provided a continuous flow of trained summer workers. We approached go2 with the idea. The idea lay outside their dayto-day work, but they quickly led us to a variety of resources and industry contacts that gave us our starting point. Although the idea didn’t fly at the time, we haven’t given up on it – and neither has go2. Through their Job Board and training programs, go2 is an important part of our industry every day. It was a real pleasure to host the entire team in Prince Rupert. “Our Board and staff were very impressed with the scenery and amenities of Prince Rupert,” Arlene told me, “and the hospitality we received was exceptional. Many of our team had never been there before and are looking forward to coming back to visit again soon.”

◆ ON THE STAGE

22nd BC Annual Dance Competition finished on Saturday

By Martina Perry The Northern View All last week, the Jazz Productions Association (JPA) of British Columbia presented the BC Annual Dance Competition at the Lester Centre of the Arts in Prince Rupert. To finish off the seven-day competition, JPA held the 22nd Annual Gala Night full of performances from the top two competing groups in each category, with

an awards presentation following the performances. The emcee of the gala was Paul A. Gordon, who was also an adjudicator throughout the week, along side Taylor Roper, Tammy McVicar and Natalie Lafabre Gnam. The gala started with all of this year’s Performer of the Year hopefuls in both the junior and senior categories. Dancers from Canada, and even one Australian dancer, grouped together and sang and

danced to “Just like Paradise”, a number choreographed by adjudicator Taylor Roper. The first Prince Rupert group to perform was E-Motion in the Small Group 12 and under category, performing “Eimeresque”. The all–girl quadruplet won the first place prize in their category, followed by Contemporary Collective from Terrace. Continued from page 13

months “due to budget constraints”. The letter also indicated that a review of their positions would be done to determine how the workers’ jobs would look in terms of hours in September, with a decision expected in the first week of August. The affected employees were told they would have five days to indicate if they wanted to move to another position in the union, which could bump someone else from that position. “Where did this come from? The union wasn’t aware this was going on and is now scrambling to find out what’s happening. There was just no consultation at all and if they had tried to work together with the workers we could have looked at other options,” said one of the affected workers, who has been with the City for over two decades and doesn’t recall cuts this deep in the past. “The uncertainty is that we don’t know if we’re going to have our regular job in September. This is a total sideswipe...All it does is make people nervous. I’m high on the list of seniority and could bump to another job, so others are wondering what this could mean for them.”

DRAW WINNER…

According to director of recreation and community services Rudy Kelly, the reduction in hours is something done every year, although this year it has been expanded. “We do layoffs every summer, and at the pool we do a shutdown for three weeks to a month, which requires lay-offs for lifeguards and front desk workers. Because the Civic Centre traffic is a lot slower in the summer, we’re essentially down to kids camps, we reduce staff...This year we did reduce hours on some people we wouldn’t normally reduce hours for, like custodial staff, because we saw other opportunities to save money in the operations,” he said, noting that the intention isn’t to cut jobs in the fall. “This was letting them know that during the summer we’ll be reviewing how we do things in terms of staffing and services. In the fall, when they come back they may not get up to the full hours that they had this fall...It was giving them a warning there may be a few hours shaved off here and there going forward.” As well as taking issue with the cuts themselves, two employees said they felt the way it was handled was unacceptable. “They didn’t have the courtesy of holding Contributed photo a meeting to say ‘we’re Judy Ridre-evaluating your dell presents hours’ or ‘we’re looking Nadya Strand at cuts’. I got a letter in a book as part my mailbox on Monday of the Berry saying my hours Patch’s book were being cut,” said draw.

◆ UPDATE

Weekly notes from the Prince Rupert Seniors Centre Contributed by Donna The Northern View NCribbage Winners: 1st- Tie-M. & Phil Laporte & R. Basso & D. Currie, 3rd. A. Johansen & M. Weir. Way to Go. P.S. If you would like to start playing cards, we will be offering cards on Fridays and Mondays starting in July to run through August. This is a good time to come if you are a little nervous or a little rusty as it is mostly for fun. Give me a call or come down anytime if you are interested and I’ll fill you in. Dawn was very happy with the results of the Garage Sale we held a couple of weekends ago. The Senior Games Zone 10 is now $700 richer! Way to go all you hard working souls who came out to help and thank you for all the donated items! The Seniors’ Centre will be holding its annual garage sale in late October. As much as I hate to start accepting stuff now, if you have good, clean items that you think will fetch us lots of money and you are planning to get rid of it please give us a call 250-627-1900. Thanks. Glennis has counted 323 memberships having been sold for 2012. That is a pretty good number. I do have the dreaded job of phoning those who have purchased memberships in past years, but haven’t so far

this year, so please take pity on me and come down on your own accord any time we’re open and we will happily sell you your 2012 membership.

The facilitator of the “55 Alive” workshop for Mature Drivers has yet to get back to me on the times (June 2). Hopefully I will have that information for everyone soon.

P.S. At our last General Meeting Mary Arneson our long, long, long time Treasurer resigned her very important position. We are so thankful to Mary for all her years

of dedication and hard work as Treasurer of the Seniors Centre Association. Thank You Mary!!! Mary will still be coming to play at the Centre however.

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*

What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65

53 or younger as of March 31, 2012

The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

Starting in July 2013, Canadians who are eligible for, but not yet receiving OAS will have the flexibility to delay receiving it in exchange for a higher monthly amount at a later date.

The number of working-age Canadians for every senior is decreasing** 6 5

For breaking news on your newsfeed, like the Prince Rupert Northern View on Facebook

The number of working-age Canadians per senior is decreasing, placing additional pressure on the OAS program.

SPORTS from the North Coast

◆ BOARD AUTHORIZED

CHSS to offer a basketball class By Martina Perry The Northern View Basketball is undoubtedly the most popular sport in Prince Rupert, and starting next school year Grade 11 and Grade 12 students attending Charles Hays Secondary School will have the opportunity to take basketball as a course. “Basketball is of huge interest to students in this community. We’re very pleased to see this particular course being developed that has the rigger and the requirements that are necessary for a board authorized course,” said Superintendent Lynn Hauptman after the board of education approved the class at last week’s monthly school board meeting. Students taking Basketball 11/12 will have eight units to complete that will require 120 hours of instruction. The units will consist of team building strategies, rules of the game, footwork, passing and dribbling, and pivoting, offense and defense, individual skills/team concepts, rebounding, physical fitness training, care and prevention of injuries, and a community project. Students who are successful in the course will earn four of the 28 credits of electives needed to graduate. This course will not count towards

the 16 grade 12 level credits mandatory for graduation. Students will be graded on their demonstration and application of the skills and rules of the game, on their fitness conditioning, technique and improvement, their community or middle school involvement, coaching assignments, and written and oral tests. Mel Bishop developed the course and will be teaching it. Bishop has 32 years of coaching experience in AA and AAA High School Levels, with two of his AA teams winning the provincial championships. Bishop played in the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (CIAU) for five years, and is a CIAU All-Canadian Player, with Bishop previously playing professionally overseas for two years. Bishop’s Basketball 11/12 would meet requirements set by the Ministry of Education, with similar basketball-based courses being successful in communities across British Columbia. The Ministry of Education encourages boards of education to offer locally relevant courses, such as this one, to students. The new course will not have any financial implications, as the district already has all of the equipment needed to teach the course.

A memorial service was held for her on Saturday May 12th at 7 pm at the United Church. Tea will follow. In lieu of Áowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in her name would be appreciated. A special thanks go out to Dr. Croft and the PRRH nursing staff.
