Volume 57 No. 23

Councillor offers thoughts on leak detection Cameron Orr Councillor Phil Germuth wants to see Enbridge answer questions regarding leak detection on their proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. He moved that the District of Kitimat write a letter to the company, inviting them to a public meeting and requesting that they provide a detailed description of their leak detection strategy and their leak management strategy. That motion passed unanimously. Germuth is seeking more details on that subject after researching leak detection technologies himself and finding what he believes is an ideal complement to Enbridge’s existing plans. What he found was a hydrocarbon sensor from a company based in Texas, which is basically a cable in PVC pipe, buried in the back fill while the pipeline is being constructed. A radio signal is used to transmit a leak signal to the control room, and the cable can detect a leak within one metre, and at a volume of only one litre. The leak system Enbridge is currently proposing, called SCADA, can detect a leak at 1.5 to three per cent of nominal (average daily) flow, said Germuth. His math estimated that a leak of that size would equal between 100,000 and 200,000 litres in a two-hour window. In a day that could translate to 1.2 to 2.4 million litres without being detected, he said. To illustrate, he said that the District’s council chambers would hold about 299,000 litres, which means that five to 10 ‘council chambers’-worth of diluted bitumen could leak undetected in one day. At $100,000 per kilometre to install the hydrocarbon sensors, he said that to install them in the 80 km of pipeline within Kitimat’s watershed would be less than one per cent of the project’s cost of an estimated $5.5 billion. Enbridge spokesperson Paul Stanway responded to Sentinel inquiries about the company’s knowledge and plans for such sensors. “We are currently undergoing a large research initiative to identify and test complementary leak detection technologies suitable for underground transmission pipelines. One of our initiatives includes an evaluation of fiber optic and odor sensing cables to ensure the technology actually performs as vendors claim,” he said. Continued on page 2

Ms. Sally Sousa braces for a sponge full of water at last week’s MESS Stock, a year-end carnival of sorts for students at Mount Elizabeth Secondary.

Homes selling fast, prices stable Cameron Orr If homes were something you bought in a store they’d be flying off the shelves. Even so, prices are stabilizing rather than spiking for listings in Kitimat. That’s the observation of Shannon Dos Santos, a realtor at Remax’s Kitimat office. She says that Kitimat’s market is unique these days compared to how it has been historically, with houses ranging in style — duplex, single family and multi-level homes— and also ranging in price, from $50,000 for a lot, to homes with acreage at nearly $800,000. The stock of properties for sale has gone up in the past six weeks or so, when there were about 30 listings. By the end

of March there were 74 properties listed through MLS. That increase in inventory has protected prices from spiking significantly, allowing for some supply to satisfy demand. But demand is definitely there. “It’s a sellers markets right now,” said Santos. She said that it might not be quite as scorching as rumours may indicate though. “The word out there is, generally, the market is crazy, it’s hot, there’s nothing for sale, everything’s moving very fast,” she said. “It is, but it’s not quite as extreme as people out in the public like to make it seem.” For the first quarter of 2012, 78 properties were sold

in Kitimat, worth $13 million, according to numbers from the BC Northern Real Estate Board. That compares to 2011 when there were 37 properties sold for the same timeframe at a value of $5 million. So sales are up, but the amount of properties listed are down. Through MLS there were 74 properties listed by the end of March, whereas the year before there were 131. Among those 78, Santos said there might be 15 on their way to a finalized deal. As prices stabilize in the market, she said that prices have returned to levels seen before the closure of the Eurocan Pulp and Paper Mill. While demand is varied,

she does say a lot of people looking to move into town are looking for newer homes, which typically aren’t available in quantity in Kitimat. “I have a lot of people asking about newer builds,” she said, adding she hopes to see more developers coming in and to see more land become available. At the end of the day, Santos said that in four years of working through Remax she hasn’t seen the market behave this way, where people will get into bidding wars for a property. “It’s a different market for sure.” Someone who puts a reasonably price on their home will likely see it move quickly, she said.

Leak detection Continued from page 1 “In addition, Enbridge is actively investigating and testing a number of other leak detection technologies that are complementary to the current leak detection system and aimed at detecting smaller leaks. If performance is acceptable, Enbridge would plan to implement new technologies on the Northern Gateway pipeline.� He noted the application of such technologies would be for the entire length of the pipeline, “providing that it contributes to a measurable improvement to leak detection performance.�

Power sales gone Council removes topic from assignments ing it back again. Corinne Scott said that the motion on the list didn’t refer to anything current and said that any time council wants to make a motion on similar issues, it’ll get back on the list that way. “We will never be dealing with this motion,� she said. Edwin Empinado agreed. “If we have some issues with power sales as we go along then we just have to make a motion as it concerns us,� he said.

Police address new town arrivals Keeping a close eye on newcomers to Kitimat with past criminal records is the only concern Staff Sergeant Steve Corp said he had these days when asked at a recent Kitimat Council meeting. Corp presented the April crime report to councillors, which showed little increases among the various categories of crimes, with some down over March’s figures. Common assault numbers stayed consistent at 11 in March and April, while under mischief to property there were only five cases in April versus 12 in March. For the year so far there are still zero aggravated assaults and zero robberies. No business has been broken into this year either, and there have been seven residential, two of those occurring in April.

There were 23 cases of causing a disturbance in April, up from six in March. On the subject of drugs, Kitimat fortunately remains immune from possession cases for cocaine, meth and ecstasy, while there were four cases in April of possession of marijuana, bringing the year to date total to 14. Motor Vehicle Act tickets dropped to 27 from 32 in April, while warnings went up to 44 from 42. Liquor act offences spiked in April with 11 cases, up from none in March. In the break down of year-over-year comparisons, sexual assaults are currently at five, versus seven in 2011. Assault with weapons and assault causing bodily harm currently stand at five, with 13 cases in 2011. Common assaults sit at 31, against 91 in 2011.

The zero robberies so far compares to four from last year. So far there have only been 13 threats against persons to the 66 from last year. Tw e n t y - s e v e n prisoners were held in April. Corp told council that crime is not going up but he has been noting some new trends and that relates mostly to the influx of new people to Kitimat. Their focus on their prolific offender strategy this year will mean street and curfew checks to identify new people in town who may have a criminal record, and keeping in contact with those people. “So the only real change I’m sensing right now is just a host of newer people who don’t normally reside here,� he said. Meanwhile the detachment is back to its full strength from 2011, he said, and will even

be getting three extra police officers in the coming weeks.

The Sentinel inquired to the District what the motion was that Alcan Power Sales referred to and was provided the minutes of the Feb. 10, 2003 council meeting. In those minutes was a motion — put forward by then-councillor Monaghan — regarding a community petition to oppose Alcan power sales. The motion by council was that the District provide a onetime exception and allow the petition to be placed in municipal facilities. (The then-council passed the motion unamimously, with two excused on conflict of interest.) Municipal Clerk Walter McLellan explained to the Sentinel that while that was the motion which got the issue on the list to begin with, Alcan Power Sales as it existed on the assignment list actually encompassed years worth of power sales motions. As time passed, the accumulation of motions evolved to having the issue listed as Alcan Power Sales with the high priority A designation.


How it started

The Child Care Resource and Referral’s annual picnic in the park may have been rained on but it wasn’t rained out. Children were brought into the meeting room at the Tamitik Arena for snacks and activities. Outside, children were also able to line-up for a tour of the inside of a fire truck. The public event saw 82 children this year, accompanied by 42 adults.


give a motion. Phil Germuth said that as the item was only generally regarding power sales, and that there are still questions regarding Kitimat’s powerline, as well as upcoming meetings with BC Hydro, he wanted to keep it on the list. “With everything going on I’d rather just keep this as something to keep an eye on,� he said, rather than go through the process of bring-


Cameron Orr Councillors closed a piece of Kitimat history last week when they voted to remove Alcan Power Sales from their list of motions. Councillors periodically review their list of motions at a Committee of the Whole meeting. That document records all of the directions council has made to staff, and councillors usually vote to remove actions that are completed. Ongoing since 2003 has been Alcan Power Sales, a motion which is so old that most councillors don’t know of what it refers, and even Mayor Joanne Monaghan couldn’t say with certainty what the motion specifically is. That said, it was still a close vote, with Rob Goffinet and Phil Germuth supporting keeping it on the list, and Corinne Scott, Edwin Empinado, Mary Murphy and Joanne Monaghan voting to get rid of it. Mario Feldhoff was excused on a conflict of interest. The power sales issue in its final appearance on the list was still listed at priority A, which is the highest priority council can

Using their power It was one of those “I never thought I’d live long enough” moments. Council, sitting in a Committee of the Whole meeting, were combing through their list of motions, the document which keeps fresh for council motions that they’ve passed, and where they lay in the process. The funny thing about the list is that the motions can go back close to a decade, so there were directions that many councillors had forgotten about or were not even around to have been there for the decision. One of the few “priority A” directions (the document sets priorities for motions, A being the highest) was, of all things, Alcan Power Sales. That’s certainly a ghost from the past. The motion was dated February 10, 2003, and no councillor could recall the specifics of that particular motion — not even longserving Kitimat politician Joanne Monaghan knew for sure. I looked to old Sentinel’s and found that 2003, around the time of this motion, was when Alcan hosted a Task Force meeting which included a range of representatives of the town, Kitamaat Village, and company representatives. From a cursory look at the articles — all this happened before my time in Kitimat — it was certainly a different time in the community, and much more divisive. And we’ve since learned the motion which got power sales on the aforementioned list was the then-council allowing a power sales petition in municipal facilities. In 2008 the fact it remained at priority A seemed misguided, the issue mostly nonexistant at the time. At the time in 2008, then-Mayor Rick Wozney noted that the issue was pretty much over for the District, remaining on the list only because the courts hadn’t officially closed the books on the matter — again, only from a technical perspective. Some councillors wanted to see the issue stay on the list at last week’s meeting, because there were other, modern issues that connected with the subject. However I’d argue that if there are power sales issues to bring up, it’s best to do so on a fresh basis. Clinging to a direction of council from 2003 — definitely not the council that sits today — would be holding on to a different time and direction in the community’s life. Cameron Orr

Books go digital eBooks are back at the Kitimat Public Library. Virginia Charron, the library executive director, said that patrons can now download ebooks to their devices from the library’s website using the Overdrive software system. The announcement marks the return of the program, which had been discontinued due to a low demand. Now, as people have caught up to

technology, the time was right to bring it back. The program costs about $1,000 a year. “Now there seems to be quite the demand,” said Charron. “This is what the future looks like.” The cost of the eBooks will be covered under the library’s budget but she said that it’s not a large cost to the facility.

Under Misc. Barbara Ribeiro, secretary for the Friends of the Kitimat Library, reviews the selection at the recent multi-day used book sale at the library. The total raised from the sale was not yet known by press time.

Scars a reminder of love From the Pulpit Redeemer Lutheran Church

Pastor Clint Magnus John 20: 19, “Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’ And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side.” This verse describes a scene that happened after Jesus rose from the grave in a room with the disciples, and all of a sudden there is the risen Jesus among them. And to prove that He wasn’t an imposter, He showed them His hands, which still bore the marks of the spikes that had nailed Him to the cross, and the gash in His side where the Roman spear had pierced His side.

He showed them His scars. Now, one of the disciples named Thomas was missing on this occasion, and when the others told him about it he didn’t believe it. He said, “Unless I see in His hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into His side, I will never believe.” For this, Thomas has earned the nickname, “Doubting Thomas.” But we shouldn’t be so hard on him. As human beings we are a skeptical lot. We are all prone to believing upon seeing. And so our risen Savior was patient with Him

and showed him His scars a week later, upon which Thomas made the confession, “My Lord and my God.” You see, after His resurrection, Jesus made sure that many people served as witnesses. It was important that there were people like Thomas who could express doubt and demand evidence, and then once given that evidence, believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior. Do you find it odd that the Resurrection brought Jesus back to life but left Him scarred? Here is Jesus, the risen Son of God, appearing to friends and followers and showing them the scars that His suffering and death inflicted upon Him. Isn’t it amazing that after the Resurrection, Jesus’ scars were not obliterated? We have a permanently scarred Savior. What

an incredible demonstration of God’s love for us that Jesus would continue to carry the scars of His humiliation beyond the grave. He kept His scars so that skeptical human beings like Thomas and you and me might believe in Him and be saved; so that when He reaches out to us in our sin and shame, we can see His hands where His sinless blood poured out for our forgiveness; so that when He reaches out to bless and comfort us in our times of trial, we see the scars on His hands that show us His compassion; and He kept them so that when He reaches out to forgive us and receive us as His own, we can see the scars on His hands; and it is in those nailscarred hands that we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are loved beyond all measure. Amen.

Pilots testify to A look at power demands tanker safety The president of B.C. Coast Pilots Ltd believes that most of the safety strategies for tanker traffic into Kitimat have been addressed by Enbridge. Fred Denning on May 30 spoke to a subcommittee of Bill C-38, the omnibus budget bill working its way through parliament. The sub-committee is mandated to discuss only the section dealing with responsible resource development. Denning said the pilots association has explored a number of operating scenarios relating to tanker traffic from the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal and that they have developed risk mitigation strategies for those scenarios. He pointed to the Pilots’ success in participating in a two-year risk management study for Vancouver relating to an increase in traffic for the Kinder Morgan pipeline. For Kitimat, he pointed to “prudent measures” that should be in place. First, he said vessels entering Kitimat should be modern and double hulled, and vetted by third party agencies at high environmental standards. “It is our understanding that this would be the case in Kitimat,” he told

the sub-committee. He also said vessel speed should be reduced to between eight and 12 knots, a speed that allows tugs to work effectively.

“It appears that all reasonable measures to mitigate risk in Kitimat... have been agreed to.”

He also calls for an enhanced radar system to cover portions of the tanker route. “In the case of Kitimat, the information we have is such a system is to be installed, as well as additional navigational aids throughout the channel.” Powerful tug escorts are also needed to assist tankers wherever they are needed, and loaded tankers should require a tethered escort tug for the entirety of their passage in the channel. “For our part, B.C. Pilots can only say that it appears that all reasonable measures to mitigate risk in Kitimat and along the coast have been agreed to.”

Cameron Orr Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) development is among the largest industrial sectors driving up demand for electricity, BC Hydro says in their draft Integrated Resource Plan 2012 document. Factors such as unpredictable commodity prices make it challenging to forecast demand from such developments as well, the report states. The BC Hydro report incorporates potential loads from BC LNG — the relatively small LNG project that’s a Haisla and LNG Partners LLC proposal — and Kitimat LNG, but doesn’t include the proposed LNG Canada project led by Shell, however that project is acknowledged in the report as a potential third project. Even with just the two proposals included, the report says that “new LNG facilities potentially represent the biggest additional loads on BC Hydro’s system.” Hydro does have enough energy to supply the two initial LNG projects however they are looking at options to supply enough additional power for the third LNG proposal.

25% of people who are

HIV+ do NOT know. It is estimated that these 25 per cent of HIV+ people are responsible for 75 per cent of new infections.

LNG projects such as Kitimat LNG will provide challenges to BC Hydro in getting power to Kitimat. The two options set in the report include developing a new transmission line to supplement the existing 500 kV line that Kitimat is connected through, or developing regional gas fired electrical generation which could fill in energy gaps that result from the projects, on an asneeded basis. A new transmission line is the more expensive and time-intensive option but provides the most reliable energy, while gasfired generation can be brought online faster but is not as reliable, the report states. In the document’s executive

summary, it says BC Hydro will “undertake work to maintain the earliest in-sevice date of a new 500 kV transmission line from Prince to Terrace and Kitimat.” The report says that there will be an additional demand of 4,900 gigawatt hours of energy by 2021 and 12,500 by 2031, due to the two LNG proposals. Jennifer Young, media relations with BC Hydro, said 4,900 gigawatt hours equals powering 449,000 homes for a year and 12,500 is 1.14 million homes. Feedback on the report is welcome and people can read it themselves at

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.

From Kemano to Kitimat KVI teacher retires to the sea Cameron Orr The staff at the Kitimat Valley Institute said au revoir to a long-time English as a Second Language (ESL) tutor at a farewell luncheon recently. Penny Weeks shelved her French-English dictionary for the last time after 12 years working for the institution that’s now called KVI. The celebration at KVI took place just outside of the tiny room that she called her class. As a tutor she didn’t have need for large rooms, but she noted that students were known to get claustrophobic in the room, which didn’t always have the window it has now. Weeks is a long-time resident of the northwest, having called Kitimat and Kemano her home. It was 1984 when Weeks first moved to Kemano and taught at a company elementary school, arriving from Quebec where she taught elementary as well. She left Kemano in 1988 but returned in 1993 and stayed until 2000 when everyone was relocated to Kitimat. It wasn’t a good time for her, as she actually preferred Kemano living over Kitimat. “I didn’t much care for the idea of leaving Kemano,” she said, adding that she also didn’t care for the idea of coming to Kitimat. Of course, she had little choice in the matter. “I love Kemano. I think it’s the most beautiful place in the world,” she added. Despite the rough beginnings, she’s grown to love Kitimat much the same. “I’ll miss a lot of things about Kitimat,” she said, the community’s many sidewalks being the biggest draw. “The city is so beautifully organized that way,” she said. When she arrived in Kitimat with her family she went to work teaching at a school near where Overwaitea is now. That school would eventually form what is now the Kitimat Valley Institute. Weeks said there have been many highlights over the years teaching English and French as second languages. A lot of the students she’s taught over the years had French as their first language, and she’s had students with varying levels of fluency. She taught an entire Swiss-French family once, a challenge for Weeks who said that Swiss French is different from other dialects of French. She and her husband are moving to Powell River to set up their home base before setting off on the high seas on their sailboat.

Penny Weeks prepares to cut her farewell cake as she’s surrounded by her friends at the Kitimat Valley Institute. Penny has been teaching English and French for over a decade in Kitimat and Kemano.
