Hydro outlines major projects


■ Run for fun MIKAYLA HOPKINS and Nieyah Reece run around the field at Cassie Hall Elementary School May 24 during the school’s Run for Fun event. It’s an annual event where students run laps, rain or shine, earning ribbons and getting fit.

BC HYDRO is contemplating everything from building new transmission lines to adding more renewable energy projects to meet a growing demand for power in the northwest. Topping the power demand list is the development of Kitimat into a liquefied natural gas (LNG) hub to feed Asian markets. No cost estimates have been released yet but BC Hydro, based on current construction costs, could be looking at upwards of a $1 billion price tag. Some details were released this week as part of a BC Hydro document outlining power demand and supply for the province for the next 20 years. The crown corporation’s Skeena Substation just south of Terrace and its Minette Substation near Kitimat will play key roles. The Skeena Substation, for example, is a regional distribution point for power coming into the area via a 500kv line from the Williston Substation near Prince George. A variety of other lines then feed out from the substation to communities around the region. One of those lines connects the provincial grid to Kitimat but it’s incapable of providing sufficient power to two planned LNG plants at Kitimat, indicates a BC Hydro information provided earlier to the KitimatStikine regional district and this week to city council. One part of BC Hydro’s work plan to provide more power involves modifications on that existing 287kv line running to Kitimat. “When more power passes through the conductors, they heat and sag,” explains a

BC Hydro letter sent to the regional district. “By replacing some of the poles with taller poles and recontouring the ground in some locations, BC Hydro will ensure the clearance between the lowest point of the conductors (wires) and the highest point of the ground is adequate,” the letter continues in outlining what’s called an interim solution. In the past, BC Hydro might have been able to rely on surplus power from Rio Tinto Alcan’s Kemano hydroelectric generating facility but the company will need that power once it finishes rebuilding its Kitimat aluminum smelter. BC Hydro’s long-term solution “will involve constructing one or more new transmission lines between Skeena and Minette substations. BC Hydro is studying various alternatives at this time.” An exact route needs to be set out and the size of the line has yet to be established. BC Hydro’s northwest plans become even more substantial now that a third LNG plant plan has entered the picture. While BC Hydro estimates it can supply power to the Kitimat LNG and BC LNG plants from existing sources, that won’t be the case for the Canada LNG plant plan announced two weeks ago. Canada LNG, a partnership of Shell and three Asian companies, is much larger than either of the first two LNG plants and the power requirements to compress natural gas to a liquid for export will not only require a new transmission line, but new power sources as well.

Officials on watch as melt accelerates LOCAL OFFICIALS anticipate that work done before and after the floods of 2007 will help now that river levels are rising as warmer weather accelerates the melting of snowpacks. In the city, protection work that year included beefing up the material at the sewage lagoon bordering the Skeena River. And in the regional district, rip rap was added to

strengthen the banks of the Skeena along Queensway. A cooler spring that has slowed the rate of snowmelt has also helped, says city administrator Don Ramsay. “For the time being, we should be OK,” he said. “Mind you, we are still above average, in some places 134 per cent, above normal [snowpack] and you can flood even at 100 per cent,” Ramsay added.

Some areas, such as Skeena St., remain vulnerable to high water simply because of their location and the river’s path, Ramsay said. Kitimat-Stikine regional district administrator Bob Marcellin is taking a cautious approach, saying that while work in prior years has helped, no one can ultimately tell what happens. “We’re completely dependent upon the weather,”

said Marcellin. “You’re prepared as you can be.” The one thing the regional district does have is training and experience from previous years, he continued. Local officials have been putting that experience and training to the test in a series of emergency preparation sessions in the last weeks featuring people from municipal and regional governments, the RCMP, the

provincial ambulance service, provincial emergency officials and northwest fire departments. One was sponsored by Pacific Northern Gas and while it was focussed on the utility’s services, bringing people together proved a benefit, said Ramsay from the city. “When we can coordinate and cooperate generally, that’s when we can get

efficiencies if we ever do get involved in something such as flooding,” he said. As it is, the regional district’s emergency program coordinator is advising people in low-lying areas to floodproof their structures, including moving valuable items to higher ground. Wes Patterson, who is the regional district’s Thornhill fire chief, says he’ll be issuing updates as needed.

Portables at Skeena TWO PORTABLE classrooms were moved to a back parking lot of Skeena Junior Secondary School last week in preparation for the school’s conversion to a middle school this fall. The school population is expected to rise from its current count of 501 students in Grades 8-10 to approximately 630 students in Grades 7-9, says principal Phillip Barron. This fall’s projected school population is close to its capacity and it has been at the number before, but the nature of a middle school calls for more classroom space than the school now has, he said. “The plan for our Grades 7 and 8 is to have more of a home room, not like the block rotation we have now,” said Barron. “A block rotation frees up more classrooms but that isn’t the case with home rooms. For our Grades 7 and 8 it will be like the schools they came from. For our Grade 9s, it will be like it is now,” he added. The increase in students means the teacher population will increase by four people, Barron said. At the same time, the school is adding a viceprincipal to make two. “They’ll also have teaching assignments,” said Barron. The conversion of Skeena to a middle school is part of a wholesale shift in public education in Terrace and Thornhill spurred by a decline in overall student population. It’s a chain of events starting with the closure of Thornhill Junior Secondary School next month. That’s to be followed by the move of all Grade 7 students to Skeena this fall. In turn, Skeena will lose its Grade 10 students to Caledonia Senior Secondary, joining Grades 11-12 students there already. Also taking place at Skeena next month is the installation of a playground on one section of the large grassy field in front of the school. It’s going to contain equipment suitable for Grades 7 to 9 and is being paid for by a provincial grant. “We talked to students at our connecting schools and parents at those schools as well,” said Barron of the planning that went into the equipment purchase decision.

College ramps up trades training N O R T H W E S T COMMUNITY College has improved its ability to train heavy duty equipment operators thanks to a grant from a federal program. The $573,380 grant has paid for 11 training simulators, a 32-foot trailer which houses six of the simulators and a truck which will tow the trailer to offer training where and when needed. An event May 22 at the college attended by Lynn Yelich, the federal Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, showcased the simulators, trailer and truck. “This will truly ensure the companies have access to a loyal and highly-trained workforce,” said Yelich in speaking to a group of mostly college employees, students and board members. She said the key is the ability to train people in the intricacies of heavy duty equipment operation in a low risk environment. Students sit at a console mimicking a piece of heavy equipment and work their way through realistic video game-like scenarios displayed on a large TV screen in front of them. Some of the simulators have screens behind the student to provide a rear view of what is happening as well. The animation is detailed enough so that it will show clods of dirt dropping off a large shovel.

College president Denise Henning stressed the need for the college to be able to offer training throughout the region. “We truly understand that you can’t get there from here,” said Henning of the complexities of northern life. “With our large industries that are coming here, it is most imperative we have the kind of training we can take on the road,” she added. The trailer unit has already been on the road, offering a course in Smithers and last week was on display at the Minerals North 2012 mining conference in Burns Lake. College trades training official Brian Badge said video simulator training is invaluable as it takes students through a wide variety of situations. “You can’t even begin without first walking around and checking things like the oil,” he said of one of the scenarios presented to students on the screen. Jim Pelton from the Industry Training Authority, which provides the money to hire the instructors to teach using the simulators, was on hand for the announcement and added to Badge’s comments. He said it takes a lot for employers to entrust pieces of heavy duty equipment worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to green em-

Stephen Wagner, a recent graduate of the heavy duty equipment program, looks on. ployees. “This is a very sensible project,” said Pelton. “In terms of this kind of trade, it’s very challenging to get a job.” “These simulators are the best way for people to learn. It makes people that much more employable and that’s

the key,” Pelton continued. All told, the college had applied for nearly $1.5 million in grants from the federal Western Diversification program and from the Northern Development Initiative Trust, formed with part of the proceeds from the lease of BC Rail tracks to CN.

The plan was to buy simulators as well as the heavy duty equipment itself. College trades dean Margo van der Touw said the college will continue to work on buying equipment. “We’re out to develop partnerships. We’d still like to buy some iron,” she said.

The college’s hands-on training with the real thing takes place at the motocross track just past the airport on Hwy37 South. Demand for the program has been such that the college is now offering two training periods a day at the location.

Bicycle activity ramps up for this work week ORGANIZERS OF Bike to Work Week May 28-June 3 are expecting a big increase in twowheeled traffic on local roads this week. “We’ll have some crowded bike racks in Terrace,” says Amy Klepetar, who sits on the Bike to Work Week organizing committee here. “I’m so excited to see that we have nearly as many teams registered this year as the total number of riders we’ve had participate in the past,” added Klepetar, an assistant professor at the University of Northern BC’s nursing school in Terrace. As of late last week, 27 local teams had been registered at the website. “I hope the enthusiasm for riding will continue throughout the year,” added Klepetar. In preparation, ICBC is promoting five safety tips for cyclists. No. 1 – Brighten up: Bicycles can be hard for other road users to spot in the mix of busy traffic so cyclists need to be as visible as possible. Bright, reflective

clothing is the best option for the rider, while the bicycle itself needs to have lights. If you ride at night, your bicycle must be equipped with a white headlight visible at 150 metres, and have a rear red light and a red rear reflector. Even if you are doing all of these things, never assume you have been seen by a vehicle. No. 2 – Don’t rush: Remember to stop and look in all directions before cycling out of an intersection, driveway or lane. The majority of all children’s cycling crashes are caused by the child riding out onto a roadway without looking. Cyclists need to ensure they follow the rules of the road. Just like any other vehicle, you need to obey stop signs and other traffic control devices and enforcement. No. 3 – Start at the top: Always wear an approved bicycle helmet that meets safety standards – it’s the law in B.C. and you could be fined for not wearing one. Bike helmets alone could

prevent up to 85 per cent of serious injuries, which account for 80 percent of all bicycle-related deaths. Look for a helmet that is approved by a recognized body such as Snell. More important than who made the helmet is how it fits. It should be snug, but not uncomfortable, and should not be able to roll off of your head when the chin strap is secured. No. 4 – Get well positioned: Position yourself so other road users can easily see you – don’t weave in and out of traffic. Importantly, ensure you always avoid riding in blind spots of other road users. Cyclists should ride on the right side of the road and in single file. No. 5 – Be defensive: While it is fine to ride in an assertive manner, cyclists need to think and look well ahead – remember, a conflict between a bicycle and a motor vehicle usually results in injury to the cyclist. Pay particular attention for vehicles turning at intersections, and slow down and take it easy on the curves.

The growth in the number of seniors is changing society’s landscape By Diana Penner


eniors are a growing demographic in Canada. Currently 1 of every 13 people is over the age of 65. At present, 13 percent of the population is 65 years of age or older. In just four years, there will be six million seniors in Canada, composing 16 percent of the population and a dozen years later that number is expected to double to 12 million, becoming 30 per cent of the Canadian population or almost 1 in 3. Add to this group the broader group referred to as the Zoomers and the number rises to 14.5 million Canadians. This group accounts for 58 per cent of consumer spending in Canada today (Source: Stats Canada). So who are Zoomers? Zoomers are age 45-plus. They include current workers, stayat-homers and the retirees who were the dominant generation 30 years ago and remain the dominant generation today. Zoomers are a growing, vibrant and affluent community. They see the world with optimism; are engaged and involved in their communities. They choose to work longer, actively seek meaningful work, invest in their communities and share concerns about aging in this country. In 1977, the average age of British Columbians was 29. With the aging of baby boomers, this median age rose to 40 by 2007 (BC Stats, 2008) At that time, 1 in 2.5 people was between the ages of 40 to 69 years of age – representing 40 per cent of the population (BC Stats, Population Estimates Standard Age Groups, 2007). Older Canadians have a wealth of knowledge, skills and experiences to share. Each day, their contributions make a real difference to Canada’s society and its economy but as the current population continues to age, the need for services and supports for seniors should become a greater priority. As a result, the profile of a retired person or mature worker has changed dramatically in recent decades. The baby boom generation is living longer than its predecessors. It enjoys relatively good health and remains fairly active physically. This demographic is increasingly tech savvy and is well educated. More than half of Canadians turning age 65 over the next decade have a post-secondary certificate, diploma or university degree. Studies show that mature workers have high job-satisfaction rates and take pride in their career and workplace. They offer experience, emotional maturity and loyalty. They work well with others, believing that service to others and success of their organization matters. With this in mind many communities have seen a regular seniors column or corner in their paper, a regular segment or clip time on the radio and a vibrant seniors centre. Terrace can confirm 1 out of 3 so far with its Happy Gang Centre. Many seniors lead fulfilling lives without significant physical or cognitive changes. They welcome the opportunity to pursue interests and activities that were previously restricted by their responsibilities of work and family. Approximately one-fifth of Canadian men and women aged 55 to 74 reports that they are satisfied with their life and that they

Although a number of seniors see retirement as working at what you want, when you want, not the end, but the beginning of a new time, there are many other seniors who are experiencing challenges. This body of seniors may be experiencing physical ailments, mobility issues, chronic pain, cognitive and sensory impairments which affects their ability to function. Other challenges like retirement, changes in income, widowhood, the loss of friendships through death, and new care-giving responsibilities can lead to social and emotional isolation and complications. The increasing seniors population has also led to dramatic increases in the number of seniors living in long-term care institutions. Seniors aged 85 and older compose the fastest growing segment of the population. In Terrace, hospital beds at Mills Memorial are occupied by seniors who are on a wait list for a bed at Terraceview, which is over subscribed with clients. Assisted living homes like McConnell House and Market Estates have wait lists. As does local affordable seniors housing like Twin River, the Willows and Tuck apartments. Placements of seniors in their hometowns

is necessary to age respectfully in a familiar environment. As a result, pressure for seniors housing is increasing. According to the World Health Organization, an age-friendly community is a community where policies, services and structures related to the physical and social environment are designed to support and enable older people to live in a secure environment, enjoy good health, and continue to participate fully in society. Can Terrace boast that we are an age-friendly community? So whether you are a Zoomer who is 45 and just becoming concerned about your future or the future of your retiring 65-yearold parents, or a 50-somethinger (the sandwich generation) supporting your children while worrying about your own parents, or a 60-pluser, who is redefining your own ability to remain active, manage pain or deal with financial concerns, you have much to consider. In Terrace, the Greater Terrace Senior Advisory Committee (GTSAC) advocates for its local seniors. The organization addresses areas of concern for seniors’ well-being. GTSAC believes that seniors should be availed with a community advocate who helps seniors to deal with health, mobility, finance and social issues. Entertainment, recreation, financial, med-

ical, safety, housing, long-term care, poverty, abuse and health concerns are all issues that have been addressed with GTSAC. Seniors are trying to be involved in finding solutions to these real-time issues; they want to engage in consultation processes that are transparent and action oriented. Seniors need programs in their own communities that provide home and community care systems and supports that will assist them to age in a respectful and healthy manner and allow them to be the mentors and citizens that they are, for as long as they can be in their own community. Seniors need to know they will be safe in their community as they age and that there will be facilities to care for them when they seek long-term care. At present, it is estimated that 35 to 45 per cent of all citizens in Canada have some type of a disability, well over 50 per cent are visually and/or mobility challenged. Many of these are seniors but along with those others this community and its businesses need to consider if they are accessible to those who are struggling with visual or mobility issues. Freedom from ageism and discrimination is a basic human right but this is becoming a concern. Financial security is important to seniors who have worked their entire life and have been significant contributors to government programs through wage deductions and taxation. Seniors believe they are entitled to: – Receive adequate income support payments and equitable access to pension or other retirement savings vehicles – Protection from financial predators – A reduced tax burden and less imposed restrictions on their finances. Good health is fundamental to quality of life and for an aging sector there must be: – Affordable safeguards for those living alone – Equitable and timely access to quality health care – Affordable access to medicines and medical devices – Options to age at home which should include adequate support and professional caregivers – Easy access to dependable information and resources. To protect the rights and dignity of people as they age, there must be: – A right to continue driving and living independently – Freedom from ageist and other stereotypes – Freedom from elder abuse – Equal rights to affordable housing. Many of these points pose a concern to seniors and should concern future generations. So to ask again, can Terrace boast that it is an age friendly community? June 3 to 9 is Seniors Week in B.C. Throughout Canada, seniors are busy helping someone or are being helped by someone. If you would like to honour seniors week, do so by honouring a senior now and in the weeks to come. Maybe you could visit a senior, support a senior attending the seniors games, visit a seniors centre, volunteer to help a senior who needs some help, sing with a senior, talk to a senior, or maybe ... adopt a senior. Diana Penner is the chair of the Greater Terrace Seniors Advisory Committee.

Job talk IT’S PROBABLY unrealistic to expect that the northwest will be able to drive the bus that is the supply of skilled labour needed as major economic projects take hold in the region. And it may be unrealistic, given the projected number of positions to be filled when balanced against the demographics of the region, that the northwest may have a seat right at the front of the bus. But there needs to be a very clear, very precise and very defined principle established that heaven and earth will be moved to first ensure that locals will have every opportunity to be trained to fill the jobs to prevent the northwest from being run over as the bus leaves the depot. As it is, the provincial government has just been told by its immigration task force that more immigration is needed to fill labour and skills shortage. Fine and dandy for other parts of the province, perhaps, but in a region with a perennial unemployment rate of more than 10 per cent, that report somehow doesn’t stack up. Recent infusions of provincial money for skills training at Northwest Community College will help as will federal aid in buying heavy duty equipment training simulators. But this is also a region in which prospective workers, for a variety of reasons, don’t even have a driver’s licence. Something very good can happen here or something very bad. We need to ensure it’s the former. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

here was a time when jewel thieves hounded by the law hid their booty in an unused warehouse,in the woods under a rock, or at the back of their sock drawer. No more. Now when cops close in the popular hidey hole is their gullet. News has reported three recent instances of alleged crooks swallowing evidence. One involves a British Columbia hang-glider pilot whose tandem rider fell to her death mere minutes into their flight. For whatever reason – he claimed he panicked – the pilot swallowed the memory card from the hang glider’s video camera. He was held in custody in police cells until the memory card surfaced a week later. He was charged with obstruction of justice. In a second instance a man suspected of trafficking drugs was pulled aside at the Vancouver airport, taken to hospital, and his innards x-rayed for signs of 40 condoms filled with liquid cocaine. In yet a third instance, a 52-year-old, well known jewel thief, banned from every jewellery store in the country, was arrested in Windsor, Ontario after he tried re-

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI placing a 1.7 carat diamond worth $20,000 with a cubic zirconia. The jewellery store clerk who was showing him the diamond recognized him from a recent alert sent out by Jewellers Vigilance Canada. He was wanted in several jurisdictions. She stalled him by pretending the manager would be available in a moment to offer him a better price. In fact she gave staff time to lock him into the store and call police. When police arrived they took him to hospital for x-rays and an ultrasound. Diamonds do not show up on x-rays. Afterward he was held in a dry


wall high up. Isolating the thief in a dry cell not only protects evidence, it also protects the thief from other inmates who might be tempted to intervene. Every time the inmate has to “go”, police hand him a container to use. The container’s contents are then examined. That unenviable task is not a job investigators can relegate to a rookie cop either. On the contrary, Brannagan says “whoever is involved in that has to be somebody who is qualified to give evidence in court. They’re going to have to articulate what happened, how it happened, how they recovered the evidence. The chain of evidence has to be maintained.” The Windsor thief, tired of sitting on the evidence, cooperated by drinking liquids that assist elimination, taking laxatives and eating meals with plenty of protein to hasten the process (and cushion the journey?). Would a faceted diamond snag in narrow turns and scrape straight-aways? How retrieved evidence is tidied for presentation to the court is best left to the imagination.

Retrieving evidence somebody swallowed isn’t that unusual, says Windsor police quoted in the Calgary Herald. That’s why they have “dry cells” with no sink or toilet and nowhere to “get rid” of anything. “Dry cells are built for these specific reasons where police need to isolate somebody and isolate the opportunity for them to rid themselves of potential evidence,” says deputy chief Jerome Brannagan. “In our business,” says Brannagan, “it’s not unusual to see persons that sense they’re cornered and they’re going to be arrested, for them to make a foolish decision to ingest some type of evidence.” A thief, while being held in a dry cell, is kept under close watch by officers and surveillance cameras.

ARLENE RIDLER does not like the new access restrictions at the city’s cemetery and neither do other people.

Don’t limit cemetery access Dear Sir: Re: “Vandals limit access to city cemetery,” The Terrace Standard, May 23, 2012. I completely disagree with this. It is ridiculous. While I understand that damage has been done to some of the graves and think that it is wrong on so many

levels, I still have to agree with Arlene Ridler. Locking the gate is not going to prevent sick individuals from vandalizing the plots. Something else needs to be done instead. It could be more security or something along those lines. I also feel, it is un-

fair to restrict access in any way – to anyone, including those who are elderly or disabled, from seeing their loved ones’ graves at any time they choose! As for the adding of headstone ornaments and whatnot, I understand there are guidelines and only so much room, but perhaps the

guidelines need to be revisited, adjusted a little especially if it helps people heal and move on as mentioned in the article I read. As for removing ornaments on top of graves to “make it easier to mow” wow. You would think if things had to be moved they would be put back

exactly as they were found. All things in this article with Arlene Ridler should be taken seriously, delicately, and exactly how we would want them to be dealt with if we had children or loved ones in the cemetery that we visit. Danielle Lavoie, Terrace, BC

Dear Sir: Monty Python got it right. You remember that sketch where the guy goes for an argument and ends up with a contradiction? “An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.” “No it isn’t!” “Yes it is! Isn’t it just a contradiction.” “Look, if I ‘argue’ with you, I must take up a contrary position!” “Yes but it isn’t just saying ‘no it isn’t’.” “Yes it is!” “No it isn’t!” “Yes it is!” “No it isn’t!” “Yes it is!” “No it isn’t.” Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says. It seems that this is some of the most profound and prophetic prose ever written, because it now represents the state of public discourse the way it is practised by our government. You may try, go ahead and try, to engage in an intellectual process with Stephen Harper or any of his minions. You cannot. You will fail. Your efforts are doomed to failure, because they are not interested in intellectual processes. They are not interested in establishing a proposition. They have no interest in opinions, or attitudes or even facts that do not fit with their view of the way the world should be. Conservatives think that this attitude makes them strong, intellectually pure. Of course, the problem is that this actually makes them stupid, because when you cut yourself off from ideas, intellectual challenges, you abrogate your ability to understand the world.

Local business taxation not fair at all


ot since the times of FDR have we heard so much about a “new deal”. Only in this case it’s about BC municipalities looking to extract more and more money from other levels of government. This bun fight wouldn’t be so much of an issue – save for one big point. There’s only one source for the money: you, the taxpayer. So if communities want more, you’ll ultimately pay more. Small business owners in Terrace understand this. It would be one thing if Terrace’s municipal tax burden was shared equally among all payers. But not all landowners are equal. Instead, business property owners face bills that are three times what residential property owners pay. In 2011 – the average Terrace property was valued at $192, 238. At the city’s current taxation rates, a homeowner would cut a cheque to city hall for $2,268. By contrast, a business owner’s hands would shake in forking over $6,785 in property taxes.

Consider their helplessness and their outrage over the matter. Though tax dollars from business make up the bulk of the local tax base, the political clout doesn’t translate. They were stripped of their municipal vote in the 1990s. No taxation without representation is a tenet of democracy. But it’s not the reality in BC. As long as entrepreneurs don’t have a business vote, and as long as there are more residential property owners with a vested interest in seeing their taxes stay low showing up to the polls, local merchants find themselves at the mercy of municipal politicians and staff to keep their taxes at sustainable levels. For every extra dollar they have to pay, a small business owner must generate exponentially more in revenues, or raise prices, or cut back staff hours, or, as often as anything, hold off paying themselves. It would be one thing, they say, if they were consuming triple the municipal services they are paying for. But snow-covered side-


SHACHI KURL walks in front of their stores aren’t cleared three times faster. And in Terrace the city opted out of commercial trash removal years ago. So now business owners pay to have garbage removed themselves and often pay to have snow removed to keep themselves and their customers safe, sanitary and slip-free. To be fair, Terrace appears to have made a hard effort to control

municipal spending. Over the last decade Terrace’s population has increased eight per cent. Its operating spending, adjusted for inflation, decreased two per cent. It also did a very wise thing years ago when the city’s primary employer and industrial taxpayer, Skeena Cellulose, went under. The city cut spending in recognition of the fact it would likely never have the benefit of the mill’s property taxes ever again. So cutting spending then was a fairly prudent move. But the story doesn’t and shouldn’t end there. When the tax base isn’t really growing and there’s only so many dollars and services and infrastructure need to be maintained and pot holes need to be filled, what’s a city to do? It could try shifting the burden so it’s more reflective of business owners’ need for tax fairness. It could do more to recognize the high risks and slim rewards that come with staking your hard earned dollars on opening a business and creating jobs. Would tax shifting be a politi-

cally unpopular move? Maybe. Many cities are quick to say their tax rates reflect the demands of residents to do more, build more and spend more on making cities more “liveable”. But it is commerce, not livability, that is the true life blood of a thriving community. The first civilizations did not spring up along the shores of the Nile or Fraser rivers because they seemed like nice places to settle. Their beginnings are steeped in trade, business and the flow of cash. Terrace could also freeze business taxes until they are double the rate of residential property tax. But without the political will, the chances of it happening are about as good as the chances of those flower beds you’ve dug growing weed-free this summer. While you struggle in the garden, many small business owners will be struggling to pay their property tax bill. Hardly seems fair.

The Mail Bag Dog spotted digging at the city cemetery Dear Sir: I was going to visit the graveside of my husband Cornelis Braam on Easter Sunday and it was still covered in snow. But close by was a place where the snow was removed, a fresh grave. A dog was digging deep holes so deep I could not see his head. Flowers were pushed away and two deep holes were close together with a space in between. No one else was there. I was scared and stayed in the car and watched. Then I drove a little farther to my relatives’ graveside. Show there also. I was just sitting in my car, trying to decide what to do, report it or not. So I turned back and the dog

was gone. I should have reported it but did not because there was no dog anymore. I did see a few more places dug up. One week later, the large gate was locked and a big sign was up. And I do fully agree with Arlene Ridler and hope the city will make different arrangements so we can visit our loved ones’ gravesides again without too much trouble. The vandals of grave digging were not people, but a dog. I have seen it. They can come in there through the back of the cemetery or wherever else. Jane Braam, Terrace, BC

Arrogant ying circus And as a result, you reduce, drastically, your ability to make educated, informed decisions. If that is not actually important to you, you may perceive that as a good thing. The problem is, actually, it’s a bad thing. Most especially when we are talking about public policy. And most unfortunately, the Conservatives adopt this view all the time. It seems they are almost genetically (certainly intellectually) incapable of considering an opposing view on its merits, or even respecting its right to exist. Distressingly to me, this demonstrates a lack of grace. This was egregiously demonstrated by James Moore (who I have dealt with personally) who attended the NDP leadership convention this year; he lacked the simple grace to say something like “We wish to congratulate Mr. Tom Mulcair on his

achievement and we look forward to seeing him in his new role as Leader of the Opposition in the House.� No. He could not say that: He is so well programmed by Stephen Harper that all he could do was be disdainfully dismissive of the people who are in fact his co-workers in democracy. All he could say was “it doesn’t matter who their leader is; their policies are laughable.� Arrogance, disdain, these things are never attractive. Truth be told Mr. Moore, those attitudes belie intolerance and intellectual laziness. Mr. Moore is fond of waving his hands and saying “That’s just politics.� It may be politics, but it is not democracy. Dave Menzies, Terrace, BC

BC HYDRO’S Skeena Substation is to play a big role in the crown corporation’s plans.

From front 

BC Hydro has big plans BC Hydro has already begun planning to finish its Site C hydroelectric project on the Peace River in northeastern B.C. in anticipation of the province’s future power needs. “One option for meeting these future needs is a new 500kv line linking Williston Substation to Minette Substation for an approximate length of 500 km. New electricity resources would need to be added as well. Another option involves adding renewable energy projects backed up by natural gas thermal generation in northwest B.C. where LNG facilities are being proposed,” the letter states. The prospect of using natural gas-powered turbines to provide the power to run the Shell/Canada LNG plant has been acknowledged by Shell officials. “Our preference is to power the plant with electricity from the B.C. grid vs. gas turbines which would significantly reduce the CO2 emissions,” says Shell official Rob Seeley in responding to questions about the project. “BC Hydro is studying their options to supply the needed power to northwest BC for a number of proposed LNG plants.” But Seeley also indicates Shell will “continue to carry a gas turbine option in the event power needs cannot be met by BC Hydro.” “LNG facilities will need a reliable and consistent supply of electricity if they are to use electric drives,” continued Seeley. “One of BC Hydro’s options is to firm up regional power with gas turbine power. Renewables could also then be considered in the regional power portfolio,” he states.

BC Hydro says it should know more about the exact demands for electricity at the Kitimat-area planned LNG plans by this fall. Art Sterritt of the Coastal First Nations group earlier this year said it was working on a plan to develop hydro power on the coast but, as of yet, no details have emerged. Another option to increase the flow of power from the Williston Substation to the Skeena Substation involves installing capacitor stations for the current 500kv line to compensate for the distance between the two substations. Even as BC Hydro plans for more projects in the northwest, it is already spending $561 million to extend power north of Terrace via the 287kv Northwest Transmission Line. It’s to be 344km in length. The corporation is getting $130 million from the federal government for the line and, in return for access to the line, $180 million from Calgary-based energy company AltaGas. AltaGas is now building a 195 megawatt run-ofriver project called Forrest Kerr on the Iskut River and has plans for two smaller ones in the area. Power from all three will be sold to BC Hydro through the Northwest Transmission Line. As part of the $130 million from the federal government for the Northwest Transmission Line, BC Hydro is committed to building a smaller line to Iskut from the end of the larger transmission line, which is to be at Bob Quinn on Hwy37 North. That extension is expected to cost approximately $117 million and BC Hydro has been largely silent on its details.

Feds ignore locals on Enbridge, says MP A LOWER Mainland MP says the federal Conservative government is stomping on democracy by turning a deaf ear to cries against Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline project. In an informal community meeting held in Terrace last week, Vancouver-Quadra Liberal MP Joyce Murray talked to residents about the project and said the Conservatives have shown unwillingness to listen to people about the issue. She noted the federal government has given itself the authority to decide whether large projects go ahead or not, which goes against the federal review process currently in place. “Our environmental safety net is being weakened and damaged,” she said about the current federal policy spearheaded by a majority Conservative government. “I have to ask as an MP, do we have a democracy? Will we decide that we’re going to allow the government to override our regulatory processes?” Of the 13 people who showed up to the Best Western Hotel in Terrace May 23 to meet with Murray, councillor Marylin Davies said the city has heard overwhelming opposition to the project. “My feeling isn’t if, it’s

Joyce Murray when,” said Davies of a spill happening if the pipeline becomes operational. She said she’s largely concerned about a spill resulting from an oil tanker travelling through the Pacific, and arguments ensuing about who will be responsible for cleaning it up. Terrace resident John How also voiced concerned about the regulatory process, adding he is also disappointed with the provincial government’s lack of involvement in the Northern Gateway Joint Review Panel hearings. He asked Murray how resi-

dents here can petition the province to become involved, which it still has the ability to do by evoking a certain power. Murray added that residents should take it to local NDP MLA Robin Austin, and that larger numbers of voices are more effective. After the meeting, Murray reflected on what she’s heard about the project. “I think it was pretty clear in the meeting that I had at the hotel there that the people don’t think its going to be a net benefit to the area,” she said. “Certainly it fit into a concern that, as expressed by First Nations, that they are not being respected, consulted and included in the way that they need to be.” Murray had earlier hoped to convince the federal government to ban oil tanker traffic from travelling ocean waters around Haida Gwaii. She introduced a private member’s bill to that effect last year but it died when Parliament was dissolved leading up to the May 2011 federal election. After her talks in Terrace, Murray said her next step is to share those issues with her Liberal colleagues and that information is then taken into consideration while making federal policy decisions.

HIV is a real concern within our communities. You can contract HIV primarily through unprotected sex and by sharing needles. HIV can live in your body for years without you knowing and all the while you can be passing it to others. At least 25 per cent of people who are HIV+ do not know and these 25 per cent are estimated to be responsible for 75 per cent of new infections. Northern Health, in collaboration with its community partners, is working with the Province of BC to prevent the spread of HIV by expanding HIV testing, treatment, and support services to British Columbians.

Dutch Valley flooding fears remain unresolved for now THE MAY 25 KitimatStikine regional district board meeting heated up as Dutch Valley residents vented their frustrations with the lack of any flood protection measures on their properties. James Wold, who led the pitch for the need for flooding protection at the board’s March meeting, said that despite the regional district’s word that they would have a plan in two weeks, it had been two months now and residents were still waiting. Time was running out because the Skeena River is close to flooding, he said. “We might not get a chance [to prevent flooding]. I’m here to get flood protection for the families in Dutch Valley except me because I’ve rejected the plan for flooding control.” When asked by Thornhill director Ted Ramsey why he opted out, Wold said he un-

derstood that signing on to the cost sharing plan meant the valley would get flood protection before flooding came, which isn’t going to happen. He explained that he had originally relented and had signed a petition asking that a service area be created so residents could be taxed for measures such as flood protection. But he said he was later given to understand the petition had been lost. That being the case, Wold said, he asked for his signature to be removed from the petition because it was now too late to have any protection work done. Board vice-chair and Hazelton mayor Alice Maitland said she knew the provincial government was involved and had been in contact with the regional district just that day. Telegraph Creek board director Dave Brocklebank said the

Jim Wold board has to go through a process to get financial assistance. “We don’t have a pot of money we can access anytime,” he said. District of Stewart councillor Billie Ann Belcher said the plan was for erosion control, which would keep the riverbank from wearing away, and not flood protection. Dikes for flood protection are much, much more expensive but the board could certainly look into it, she said. Dutch Valley resident Ken White then

stood and yelled, with a few expletives, that the board should be doing its job to help the valley. “She’s the one out doing your job,” he said of another valley resident, Jennifer Morgan, who had been circulating the petition requesting a service area. “[Expletive] you people, we pay for you guys and you do nothing,” he said. “You guys are just [expletive] pathetic.” He stormed out of the meeting room and made more comments as he left the office. Morgan said residents understand that the help they would get would be erosion control and that if they don’t become a service area then the board and district can’t help them. Wold, who thanked regional district direc-

tor Doug McLeod for trying to help the residents by coming out to his place and looking at the problem along with regional district engineers, asked if the board would put McLeod in charge of overseeing the work to protect the valley so it would be done properly. Afterward, speaking in a hallway outside of the regional district meeting room, Wold said the flooding this year would be way worse than 2007 because the riverbank that was there back then had washed away, leaving no protection. “It’s falling in right now and the river is not even close,” he said about his land. He said that 10 years ago the valley could’ve had flood protection for $50,000 and now the board says it’s $500,000.

Last year, three Terrace Women joined together to support wellness with distinct but complementary therapies to bring balance and healing to our community. Cheri Reidy and Diana Rose opened the Nourishing Life Wellness Clinic one year ago.

When used in a therapeutic setting, hypnosis can help clients deal with energy draining chronic pain and support growth in areas of their lives where they are finding it difficult to make health supporting changes. With deep relaxation as its base, hypnotherapy is highly effective in replacing limiting beliefs and habits with more positive, growth supporting beliefs and choices that lead to healing and change. It is commonly known for its effectiveness in weight management, smoking cessation, and relief from chronic stress, anxiety and phobias but hypnotherapy’s applications are as broad as the range of behaviours clients want to change. Already a student in the Masters of Education Counselling program at the University of Northern British Columbia, Sissons jumped at the chance to add hypnosis to

her repertoire of counselling skills.

“I am delighted with the practice, “ says Sissons. “Hypnotherapy is a brief therapy. It’s a powerful tool that helps people make positive changes in their lives in a remarkably short period of time.” Nearing the clinic’s oneyear anniversary, each of them took a moment to stop and reflect on the satisfaction of creating a holistic healing business in Terrace. “It is wonderful to be working together,” says Sissons. “The clinic feels like a healing space. People are continually impressed at the calm, welcoming atmosphere and the positive results.” “For me, this work is profound and gratifying. I learn so much from each patient. The best for me is to help with intractable chronic pain.” To Rose, “it is just such a pleasure to know that this is where I work.”

Separate Your Business and Personal Expenses Separating business, home, and personal identity can be difficult for entrepreneurs. You have so much of yourself wrapped up in what you do for a living. Running a business tends to be all-consuming and it can be hard to tell where you stop and your business begins and, not just in terms of your emotional investment. Your personal and company finances can also get mixed together if you’re not careful. There are benefits to keeping your business and personal finances separate. First and foremost, it legitimizes what you’re doing, not only in your eyes but in the eyes of other interested parties, including bankers and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Legitimate business expenses can be deducted from your business revenues to reduce taxable income. This means that if you keep detailed accounting records, and track the expenses you incur over the course of the year, you will never pay more tax than you have to. Of course, your expenses have to be legitimate and they have to be backed up with the necessary receipts and/or other documentation. The second important benefit for making a clear distinction between your business and personal finances is that, you get an accurate and objective view of your business’ viability. You’ll never know if it can support both you and your goals in the short and long term if you don’t have an uncompromised picture of its finances. It can be challenging to keep your business and personal finances separated, the following tips can help you: •

If you operate from your home, try to confine your work to one room or one area and keep that space exclusively for your business. This way, you can easily determine the percentage of housing costs to apply to the business. As much

as possible, find ways to clearly distinguish what belongs to the business and what doesn’t. For example, if you can, set up a separate business phone line or at least track your business telephone usage. •

Set up a company credit card and use it for business expenses. Remember, though, that the card is a tracking tool, not a source of financing. Interest on credit cards is too high to be using one to float your business. Establish a filing system for your business receipts. Don’t throw them all in a shoebox and hand them to an accountant at the end of the year. The shoebox provides you with virtually no ongoing financial information. The least you should do is figure out the major expense categories that you have and, as your costs are incurred, file the invoices and receipts accordingly. Then, once a month, enter the information into your revenue/ expense and cash flow statements.

Her extensive experience includes holistic planning, cash flow and budgeting, debt management, protection through insurance, retirement and income planning, and estate issues. As a member of her region office, she is backed by a team of professionals to ensure your needs, goals and wants are achieved.

Don’t think you need to do it all. Consult with your accountant to set up a system that makes sense for you. However, it is critical to have enough financial understanding to tell if you’re making a profit, how your cash flow is doing, and how each area of your business is doing.” Women’s Enterprise Centre is the go-to place for BC women business owners for business loans, skills training, business advisory services, resources, publications and referrals.

A FIREFIGHTING crew from Terrace left for northern Ontario May 24 in response to a growing forest fire hazard in that region. The 20-member unit crew called the Firebirds was joined by the Telkwa Rangers and both are to spend up to 19 days back east. A third unit crew, this time from Burns Lake, left for Quebec May 26 in response to fire threats in that province. Unit crews can spend

up to 14 days on the fire line and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also travel time built in when they are sent outside of their area, said regional forest fire information officer Lindsay Carnes. That leaves the northwest without any unit crews but all of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-member initial attack crews remain here, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t send a unit crew out to a new small fire anyway,â&#x20AC;? said Carnes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our initial attack crews are trained to

fight smaller fires.â&#x20AC;? There are two initial attack crews in Terrace, two in Telkwa, two in Burns Lake and two in Houston. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be taking turns spending one week in Dease Lake to maintain a presence up north. Also sent back east are regional forest fire officials, including Rich Forget from Terrace, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look after the unit crews and help manage overall firefighting efforts. Carnes said the for-

est service can call in help from the Yukon if the situation warrants in the far north and can call in help from other areas of the province if needed. As for the prospects of a busy fire season here, Carnes said much depends upon Juneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we have a rainy June, the fuels wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as susceptible to burning when the hot, dry and windy weather comes in July and August,â&#x20AC;? she said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if we have a very dry June, the combination of drier fuels and hot and windy weather can add to the conditions for fire.â&#x20AC;? For now, Carnes continued, the large snowpack still in the mountains is helping. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an ongoing drought to start the season as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in previous years,â&#x20AC;? she said. The forest serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional firefighting efforts are based in Smithers.

Multiple arrests for being drunk TERRACE RCMP officers arrested a 48-yearold man last week for public intoxication. It was the 43rd time the man had been arrested for the offence since the beginning of the year. Meanwhile, officers also arrested a 44-yearold woman for intoxication. It was the 27th time the woman had been arrested for the same offence since the beginning of the year. In another incident, a 36-year-old man suffered minor injuries after being hit by a silver car near the Bear Country Inn last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Investigation determined that the man was intoxicated and should not have been riding the bike,â&#x20AC;? indicated an RCMP report. The man refused to be seen by paramedics.

Grade 7 to remain at Veritas

THE AREA’S Catholic elementary school will be keeping Grade 7. Veritas principal Dave Crawley says it won’t be following the decision of the public school system to move Grade 7 from its elementary schools to a middle school of Grades 7-9. He said the school’s governing council discussed the possibility and also surveyed parents of Grade 6 students and found that a majority favoured keeping Grade 7. “We talked to all of them and out of 30 [parents of students], 24 said they would like to stay,” Crawley said. Had Veritas decided to eliminate Grade 7, students entering that grade this fall would have gone to Skeena Junior Secondary, which is converting from a Grade 8-10 school to a middle school of Grades 7-9. Reasons parents favoured keeping Grade 7 included the religious education offered at Veritas and knowing who would teach their children, Crawley said. “A few others wanted to see how things might turn out over the first year,” he said of the shift at Skeena. Crawley said Veritas is proud of its educational offerings which begin with all-day kindergarten. “As long as there is a demand, we’ll be offering Grade 7,” he said. Veritas has approximately 200 students with one teacher per grade, meaning there aren’t any splits, said Crawley. In addition to a 0.6 band teacher, librarian and assistance for special needs students, Veritas also has a full time physical education specialist, he added. “You don’t see that in the public school system,” said Crawley of the P.E. specialist. Veritas first opened in September 1959 on the location of the present-day Skeena Mall on Lakelse Ave. Buildings were moved to the current Straume Ave. location in 1973 and several renovations and additions have since taken place. The school was staffed for many years by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto and by Frontier Apostles, a volunteer group which served at Catholic schools all over northern B.C.

HELP SHAPE B.C.’S CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE British Columbia is growing and so is our demand for electricity. Although British Columbians are doing more than ever to conserve electricity, B.C.’s overall electricity use is expected to continue to increase by about 50 percent over the next 20 years, so we must plan now to ensure future generations can enjoy clean and reliable power. The Integrated Resources Plan (IRP) is BC Hydro’s plan for acquiring the resources needed to meet our customers’ demand for electricity. In 2011, we conducted a province-wide consultation to gather input into the development of the IRP. BC Hydro now has a draft plan and we are inviting the public, stakeholders, and First Nations across B.C. to provide feedback on it. BC Hydro is offering a number of ways for you to get involved in planning for the province’s future energy needs:

Customer ProďŹ ling: How to Hit the Target

The biggest issues in marketing are budget and message. If your target market is â&#x20AC;&#x153;womenâ&#x20AC;?, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be pretty hard to ďŹ nd a single, clear message that appeals to all of them. Since women come in an endless variety of shades and ďŹ&#x201A;avours, with so many different interests, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost impossible to ďŹ nd a mix of marketing and advertising media that could possibly reach them all. Well, unless you have an endless budget.

is likely to purchase, but until you actually get going and test the waters, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still only theory.

To market your product or service effectively, you need to know information or â&#x20AC;&#x153;the proďŹ leâ&#x20AC;? of the customer you want to sell to. Trying to lump everyone together simply doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. The solution is to think truly targeted market, that small, hard to hit, sweet spot in the middle of the target (the bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye). Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look at how to get started.

Fine Tuning the ProďŹ le

Once you have a few clients in your portfolio, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll begin to get a sense of whether your initial ideas were on the mark or whether you encountered some surprises along the way. As you adjust your focus based on the response youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received (i.e. sales), you move one ring closer to the bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye.

It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take you long to build a larger database of clients to draw from, giving you an opportunity to get an even clearer, more speciďŹ c picture of who is buying your product or service.


The ďŹ rst step, when you start in business, is doing market research to deďŹ ne as speciďŹ c a description of your prospective customers as possible. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a pretty good idea of who

Customer ProďŹ ling: How to Hit the Target (continued from previous page)

Kelly Ruff

You can gather a great deal of research and experience to take you most of the way toward hitting your customer proďŹ le target, but in the end the ďŹ nal decision is up to you.

Go Straight to the Source Ask your customers! There is no better way to understand the unique characteristics of your customers and why they choose to do business with you than asking them directly. Find out what they like, what they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working for them and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not. Put yourself in their shoes and learn what motivates their buying behaviour. Niche Marketing Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance even with the more focused target market not all of your customers look exactly alike. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great news! Now you get to take the ďŹ nal step and decide precisely which bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye -- which sweet spot -- you want to hit. Look at the shortlist of customer proďŹ les you have identiďŹ ed as likely prospects, which one do you want to spend your time, energy and marketing budget on?

For more resources on marketing your business go to Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Enterprise Centre is the go-to place for women entrepreneurs all over BC. We provide business advice, loans, training, resources, and mentors to help women start, purchase or grow a small business. With ofďŹ ces and business advisors throughout the province, we provide essential resources and services designed to build business capacity and fuel success. Our professional team understands and relates to the unique circumstances of women business owners, providing tools and conďŹ dence through a supportive, individual and practical approach. Visit www. for more information. This article was written in collaboration with Liz Gaige, Market Navigators Consulting,

To make that decision, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to factor in the hard facts, such as which category of customer is most proďŹ table, with the human facts, such as which customers do you most enjoy serving?

THE THORNHILL Junior jazz combo won a silver at MusicFest Canada, one of the three awards in the bands’ highest number of awards at the event.

Bands earn most awards at last fest By MARGARET SPEIRS THORNHILL JUNIOR band students won their highest number of awards at Music Fest Canada in their last time there. The concert band brought back gold, the jazz band won gold and the jazz combo won silver in what was also the most musical groups the school has ever entered, said band teacher Mike Wen. “I figured they’d do really well,” said Wen. In addition to those bands and combo, a sax quartet and clarinet trio played too.

Students were also on exchange, visiting Carleton Place School, whose band students were here for a week in April. Thornhill students took a tour of the city of Carleton Place given by the mayor, took workshops at Queens University taught by one of Wen’s former professors, played a joint concert with their hosts, toured Parliament and visited the National War Museum. Jazz students took workshops from Gordon Foote, the head of jazz at McGill University, which is known to be the best school for jazz at the post-secondary level, said

Wen. “The kids were pretty well floored by his ideas and the way he demonstrated things,” he said. During the week they were there, they listened to the adjudicators’ comments on how they could reach the next level and they improved and their performances were better and better as the week went on, said Wen. Several MusicFest adjudicators saw Thornhill Jr. on the program and came just to hear the students play; quite a few of the adjudicators had been to Terrace as clinicians

or adjudicators, said Wen. Overall, the students got even more out of the experience than they expected. “They really enjoyed themselves. They learned a lot more than they expected and got a lot more out of the festival than expected,” said Wen, adding the students cheered when they heard they had won the awards and some even cried. “They’re a great bunch of kids to work with. I’m really proud of their achievement,” said Wen, adding they couldn’t have done it without the support of the community.

Teaching students accurate first nations culture FIRST NATIONS’ culture is thousands of years old but that doesn’t make it irrelevant to today. That’s part of the message Tony Sullivan talks about in his Teepees in Schools presentations to schoolchildren about first nation culture east of the Rocky Mountains. He was here last week to talk to students at Suwilaawks and Cassie Hall schools. Students are told to ask questions about what they’re interested in and that includes when they’re in the teepee that Sullivan set up on the lawn at both schools here. “Often times the questions lead into discussions such as the environment, environ-

mental protection and use of natural material and guardianship of the environment, our connection and responsibility to the environment,” says Sullivan, “so everything, although it might sound like ancient cultural stuff, it’s actually relevant today in many ways.” Sullivan is Anishnabe from Ontario. The Anishnabe culture’s traditional lands stretch from Peace River country to south Florida and from the Columbia Valley east to Labrador, – one of the largest first nation groups in North America, he says. “The reason we had a vast area is because we had the birch bark canoe, which gave us mobility all over the continent,” he says.

People from the east would travel from Thunder Bay, Ontario with copper to trade in Kitamaat for oolichan grease, he says. One difference between cultures on either side of the mountains was that west coast people didn’t use the portable teepee, except occasionally as temporary lodges for hunting, but for the most part, they had permanent houses as they didn’t have as much reason to travel as much as people from the east, says Sullivan. His culture had wigwams as its permanent structure, he says. While teepees are cone-shape, wigwams are shaped like an upside down dome, or like a stretched igloo, he explains.

He began doing presentations in schools after he started manufacturing teepees 15 years ago and found out how much stereotyping and misinformation was out there based on movies and media that was giving information from the wrong sources. First, he did a volunteer program for his son’s school Grade 4 class. He had a teepee on the roof of his car and it was National Aboriginal Day so he asked the principal if he could do a volunteer program with students in the teepees for 15 minutes. A few days later, another principal called to ask if he would do the same and it grew from there.

Terrace Standard Wednesday, May 30, 2012


always thought turning 40 would feel big. Important. Like an arrival. An arrival at what exactly? Well, I guess I hoped for some overarching wisdom—about myself, about others, about life. As my 30s progressed, however, I had the sneaking feeling that my grandiose hopes for 40 were probably going to be dashed. And sure enough, when I woke up on May 1st of this year, no massive explosions of multiple epiphanies greeted me. Fortunately I’d had that advance suspicion, so I wasn’t too, too disappointed—but I was still a bit surprised. Am still a bit surprised. (I can’t help it; the drama diva in me is always convinced things will be bigger deals than they are!) At 40 I feel much the same way I have at every age: Curious and slightly muddled. Excited and hopeful. A tiny bit jaded and disillusioned. Rebellious and comfortable. Claiming those descriptions simultaneously may seem incongruous, but they all fit. Contradictory seems to be the one word that expresses human experience best. Anyway, in my typical fashion, I decided to honour my birthday this year—my 40th birthday!—by contemplating where I am and how I’ve gotten here, where I hope I’m going, and how I might get there. I then—and this will come as no surprise—decided to write down some of these thoughts: 40 of

Teepee teaching



40 Thoughts on 40 them to be exact. Let me share the 1st one. When I was in Grade 4 at Clarence Michiel, I had a wonderful teacher— the kind who changes your life by being excited about who you really are, what you really love. Her name was Betty Hamilton. She’s still around, but has now retired. I’m sure she’ll love being mentioned, heh heh. The annual yearbook was being created, and each class got to fill one page. Mrs. Hamilton had us each write a tiny bio of who we were and who we wanted to be. As this was pre-computers and

“I realized there was a really big need for this because of the lack of accurate information in our society,” he said. “It’s a day kids will never forget at school. I like to do that: give kids memories they’ll never forget.”

rampant word processing and printing (See, now you believe I’m getting old!), we all worked our bios through rough drafts by hand to achieve a “good copy” which was then cut and glued onto a sheet with the others and photocopied, thus creating one cohesive page. It is a small treasure: this little record of me, cramped letters proclaiming, “Hello My name is Evelene. I’m 9 years old and I love horses and chickens. And when I grow up I want to be a farmer.” Grade 4 was also the year I decided I wanted to be a novelist (a ghost story or mystery writer, to be exact), but I didn’t have space to admit such a thing in my bio. It was a secret only told in Mrs Hamilton’s writers’ club—my first introduction to my favourite kind of group ever. While the writing wish held true, I veered away from that farming vision of myself in my teens. And now? While I find it funny to admit, some 30 years later, the same slightly messy, hopeful, easily contented summary of myself would still hold true. Except maybe substitute horses with goats. As I age I feel like I’m growing into who I really am, while also feeling freer to just be the quirky kid I always felt I should leave behind, but never quite managed to. Not exactly a deep epiphany, perhaps, but an observation (at 40!) that interests me. I am trying really hard to not even try to guess where my head will be at when I’m 50!

Things have improved in the last 15 to 20 years, he says. “The current day-to-day news is much better than it used to be. People are taking the initiative to inform themselves,” he says. But the movie industry con- A25

Emile Laderoute, age 64, of Terrace BC, passed away May 15, 2012, surrounded by his family. Emileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family was his greatest joy in life. He was a generous man, always willing to lend a hand. He will be remembered for his crazy antics and sense of humour as well as his love of the Montreal Canadiens and his job as a truck driver. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 43 years, Lise Laderoute; daughter Theresa Hutchinson; son Norm Laderoute; daughter-in-law Jen Laderoute and grandson Connor Hutchinson. Never will a day go by that he is not in their hearts and in their souls. To honour Emileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishes, no service will be held.

U14 girls soccer team takes gold THE TERRACE girls U14 soccer team mopped the floor with their opponents at a tournament in Kamloops May long weekend. It was the first tournament of the season for the girls aged 13 to 14 — and with barely two months of practices under their belt this year the girls won each of their four games played. Games were played at the KYSA Slurpee Cup, a Kamloops-based tournament that sees soccer teams of all ages from across the province show up to play. This year, 11 Terrace teams ages 11 through 18 made the trip to compete March 19 to 20. On the 19th, the U14 girls first played the Prince George Kodiaks, winning 2 – 0. “The first game against Prince George showcased the strength of the forward line,” said the team’s coach Teresa Wraight. “Hannah Jay’s quick feet were unstoppable and Carly Davis dominated the midfield. “Along with the quick strikers, nothing could get through the solid defensive play of captain, Anke Dewit. Ashlee Wojnarowski,

Mikaela Jefferies, Faith Nisyok and Grace Kennedy all dominated on the defensive line.” Next, the U14 girls played strong as a team, defeating the Vernon Unitied team 2 – 1. “Midfielders Sage Desjardins, Paige Payne, Sydney Desjardins, Emily Dodd and Carly Davis moved the ball fast and furious, setting Deborah Wraight up for two goals and another win,” said Wraight. “Game three against Kamloops was a tight game. Timely boots from stopper Ashlee Wojnarowski kept the ball in the offensive zone and the hard work paid off with timely goals from Kelsey Roberts and Ansone Van Rensburg,” she said of the third game played, which ended in a 2 – 1 win for the Terrace girls. This brought them to the finals, where emotions were running high as the girls fought hard for their gold medals in a 2 – 1 win against Kelowna United. “The final game against Kelowna was a nail biter,” said Wraight. “A goal from Kelsey Roberts and a heart

Alexx Muller, the rookie goalie, made a name for herself with miraculous, near impossible saves.” Now, the girls will be working hard in preparation for provincials.

Ten other Terrace teams played in the tournament as well. Terrace’s U12 boys won three of their games and lost two. The U12 girls won two and lost two. The U13 girls tied two games, lost one, and won their last. It was three wins

and a loss for the U13 boys. The U14 boys cleaned up with a 9 - 1 win on their first game, which was followed by one win and two losses. Terrace’s U15 girls won three and lost one. The U15 boys lost all four games. After two wins and one loss, the U16 boys domi-

nated the field in their final game, winning 8 - 1 against Revelstoke. The U-17 boys played in the U18 category, winning two games, tying one and losing their last. The U18 boys team won two, lost one, and tied their last game.

ona and I are on the upper Lakelse River by half past ten. An osprey and I are the only fishers. There are mayflies in the bushes and a few caddis flies flitting about. The water is on the high side and clear as air. No fish break the surface. As I put together my Riverwatch six weight, the 8-foot Phillipson taper bamboo rod that was built for me by Bob Clay, lost, driven over, found a year later and rebuilt by Bob, I debate whether I should tie a small muddler to my tippet and play chuck and chance it moving downstream. This will put me in contact with a few fish, but I’d rather fish the top because there is nothing more enjoyable than tricking fish with floating flies. I pluck a small Tom Thumb from my dry fly box and knot it on, then we slide into the river and move slowly downstream, not

far from the bank. You go to shore, I command the dog. She doesn’t. She’s new at this. She will learn. The stream side vegetation is lush. The air is spicy. The sun peeks through broken cloud. I make a couple of perfunctory casts, more to lengthen my line than anything else. The humpbacked little deer hair fly rides downstream. A small fish rolls underneath it. I snatch my sunglasses from off the peak of my hat and slide them over my eyes. The dark brown bottom appears in detail. There are black patches of mussels, light sandy areas, small rocks, and some sticks. Then, a few minutes later there is rise at the end of the flats, the part of the river where the water quickens before the river gets steeper on the approach to Upper Coldwater and Hai Creek, the part of the river where Finlay

liked to swing his sparse wet flies through. The rise doesn’t tell me much. The trout that made it isn’t a juvenile, but it’s too fleeting to indicate whether it was a minnow or an insect that prompted a response from the fish. I move closSKEENA ANGLER er. There are two more rises not far ROB BROWN from the first. They are between purposeful and frantic. Opportunistic events that suggest the trout could be ing water below me. after emerging YOU GO TO nymphs or some kid of terrestrial insects that SHORE! I order, pointhave blundered into the ing to the bank on river stream. Because there is right. If she swims for more than one rise, and the left side of the river, because it is unlikely the trip will take her that more than one land right through the spot bound insect could have where the fish have refallen off the overhanging branches and drifted down stream together, I suspect the former.

cently risen. I repeat the command and am pleased when she obeys. Her mother was a Lab. She swims well, but she’s not overly fond of being in the river. By the time she hauls out, shakes off, and begins rolling in the long grass, I have made half a dozen drifts over the likely looking spots in area where the fish rose. At the end of a long drag free drift, a good sized trout rolls under my fly. I learned long ago that trout may miss the occasional caddis fly breaking through the surface like an miniscule atomic missile, but they never miss a drifting fly. That was refusal.

I stop for a minute a scan the surface, looking for an indication of what prompted the recent rises, but apart from some bits of flotsam, there is nothing. I flick the line toward me, catching the leader as it passes by, then shake the line. It pays out in the current while I grasp the fly. I slip the butt of the rod into the loop sewn to the bottom vest for that purpose and clip the rod to the top of the vest with the Velcro flap there. My hands free now, I slide the sunglasses on my forehead above the peak of my cap and replace them with the magnifiers stored until then in my breast pocket. That done, I take out my dry fly box and gaze at the mass of flies perched in slots inside it, wondering what the

best choice will be to make this time consuming process less likely. I ran into Hugh Storey on the river a week ago. As usual, he’d released a lot of trout. I recall that he had a dry fly with a parachute hackle on the end of his tippet. Using what Hugh’s using is always a good bet. I pluck a size 14 grey parachute and put it up. Over the next half hour, six nice cutthroat rise up and confidently wolf down the parachute. Oona swims out again, attracted by the sound of the reel and attempts to grab the fish I’m playing. I net it and release it. You’re bored aren’t you girl? I tell her. Well, that’s enough. We leave the osprey to its fishing and wade ashore.
