We need to be ready to boom By Lauren Benn A TERRACE-BASED think tank says the northwest is not prepared to handle the level of economic activity headed our way. To better cope, the Skeena-Nass Centre for Innovation in Resource Economics (SNCIRE) wants to create a regional clearing house for information circulating between businesses, agencies and governments who will be affected by growth and its effects. SNCIRE regional director Rick Brouwer laid out the plan before city council June 11 in asking for $7,500 to help finance the con-
cept. “Northwest BC is an immense area richly endowed in natural resources but with a population of less than 100,000 people,” said Brouwer in a report given to council. “Communicating the needs of so many small communities is impossible without a regional voice.” Without a regional voice, and without looking at regional impacts and service gaps as well unintended effects of industry, an industrial boom could create a mess which would involve cleanup in its aftermath, he said. With foresight, issues can be anticipat-
ed, dealt with, and energy in the form of man power can be applied to goals that would preserve the wealth expected to hit the region instead, Brouwer added after the meeting. “Let’s be smart about how we grow,” Brouwer said, adding that spending money on regional co-operation now will pay off down the road. Currently, Brouwer explained that while there are many initiatives working to bring northwesterners together with specific goals in mind, there is no one place for all ideas to be gathered, shared, studied and gaps identified and dealt with.
“It’s ad hoc,” said Brouwer to council of current economic development groups and committees focused on the boom. For example, the Invest Northwest website, financed by economic development groups, is a good landing point for those interested in seeing what kind of activity is going on in the region, he said. And BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line Labour Market Project — which identifies labour needs resulting from projects including and stemming from the line — is essential.

Enbridge deal divides Metis By Lauren Benn
■ Strike up the band BARITONE PLAYERS Garrett Andrei, left, from Suwilaawks and Dominic Jones from Cassie Hall were part of a mass elementary band that played concerts June 13 at Cassie Hall and Suwilaawks. Grade 7 band students from the area’s public elementary schools joined with Grade 6 band students from Ecole Mountainview at the performances. The students gathered earlier this year for a weekend retreat sponsored by the Dare to Dream Foundation which promotes band programs in elementary schools.
A NORTHWEST Metis leader has resigned after the official provincial Metis organization signed up for benefits from Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project without first asking its members. Alan Sauve said he left his position as president of the Terrace-based chapter of the Metis Nation of BC (MNBC) after being told its executive had accepted a pipeline ownership, employment benefits and revenue sharing package. He said the announcement was made at a meeting he thought was being held to discuss holding a vote among Metis as to whether they should sign on with Enbridge or not. “It was a dog and pony show,” said Sauve of the meeting. “I had to resign.” Three senior Metis Nation of BC officials also resigned after the meeting. The organization had previously cancelled two planned votes among its members regarding the Enbridge package. Word of a deal struck with Enbridge surfaced through a May 26 letter from MNBC president Bruce Dumont, sent to Metis chapters after the meeting in Vancouver attended by Sauve. “I am pleased to advise that the board of directors of the Metis Provincial Council of British Columbia has agreed ... to take advantage of an equity ownership interest in (a) Northern Gateway Project limited partnership,” read the letter by Dumont. “Being on the inside working with the company on all aspects of the project, including ensuring adequate safeguards are in place for the environment and generating economic opportunities for our people is much preferred over being simply another critic on the outside and gaining absolutely nothing for Metis citizens. “The leadership shown by the MPCBC board in making this challenging decision represents a valuable step towards providing for the current and future needs to the MNBC and Metis citizens of British Columbia and continued strength of the Metis Nation.”

Enbdrige beneﬁts deal causes divide among Metis Susie Hooper and Katherine Wolfden, the northwest’s regional youth representative. News of the circumstances behind the Metis sign surfaced as Enbridge released a statement June 5 indicating it had reached economic deals with the majority of First Nations and Metis people. “Almost 60 per cent of eligible Aboriginal communities along the proposed right of way, representing 60 per cent of the First Nations’ population (and 80 per cent of the combined First Nations’ and Metis’ population) have agreed to be part owners of the proposed Northern Gateway pipelines,” the company said. And a rival Metis organization, the BC Metis Federation, says the Metis Nation of BC executive was wrong in deciding to
sign on with Enbridge without first holding a vote. “MNBCs actions are quite frankly illegal within their governance process,” said Keith Henry, founder of the Metis Federation of BC and former MNBC CEO. “There’s a lot of people that are just shocked.” Henry believes the Metis Nation if BC never intended on holding a vote in the first place. “I just think we’ve been saying that this organization was going to do this from the beginning,” he said. “They went right to the joint review panel and made public statements that there’d be a vote.” MNBC did not return phone calls from The Terrace Standard.
Man dies after van accident RCMP are investigating the death of a 31-year-old man in Thornhill after he was run over by a van June 12. Police say they were called out at approximately 1:45 am to an incident on the access road in front of the Costa Lessa Motel. “A grey 2001 Chevrolet Venture van driven by a 46- year- old man ran over a 31- year- old man,” police said in a releated. “The man died at the scene as a result of injuries he sustained,” the re-
lease continued. Conditions at the time were dark and wet and the pedestrian was lying in the middle of the access road in front of the motel, said police. “The Integrated Collision Analyst Reconstruction Services are assisting Terrace General Duty members with the investigation. The driver of the van was sober, “ says Cst Angela Rabut, media relations officer of the Terrace RCMP.

The Metis Nation of British Columbia has been trying to get out from under a $2 million plus debt load sparked by the purchase of a school building years ago, leaving Sauve to wonder if the organization will receive some debt relief from Enbridge. He’s also asking why two votes were cancelled if the provincial association says the Enbridge deal was made in the interests of Metis people. A vote was first scheduled for February, but was cancelled so people could find out more information about the project and a new vote was planned for March 23 until it, too, was cancelled. “It’s an oligarchy, not a democracy,” said Sauve of the events that led to his letter of resignation. “The position the MNBC Board of Govenance with regards to the issue of the Enbridge Northern (Gateway) Pipeline seems to be set upon a path that is contrary to the concerns of the First Nations communities to whom I render my services,” wrote Sauve in his resignation letter, adding that he works with local First Nations in many roles and refuses to stand against them. “I must remain true to my convictions in support of my community in opposition to (the pipeline).” Also resigning due to MNBC’s Enbridge alliance was MNBC vice president Dave Hodgson, women’s representative

Carvings headed for Burns Lake Following a sawmill explosion that left Burns Lake not only in mourning but without its main economic driver, two carvings from Terrace are symbolizing a revival. Not in the forestry sector, though. The village is looking to First Nations tourism — and with six First Nations in the Burns Lake area, the idea is a perfect fit, says Burns Lake Band councillor Westley Sam. The carvings are two of four ordered by the Burns Lake Band and Village of Burns Lake. They’re being done by Ben Gerow, who lives here but grew up in Burns Lake. Each carving represents one of the four clans in the Burns Lake area — the beaver and bear being the ones that are ready now and the caribou and the frog underway and set to arrive later. A fifth carving, of a Sasquatch, has also been commissioned. “We’re doing the large Sasquatch for First Nations folk lore,” said Sam. “We’re basically trying to get into the tourism market as First Nations tourism is the fastest growing in B.C.” Gerow has been carving since the early 1980s, he said, adding the current work is underway with mentor Joe Mandur Jr. “We are learning from each other,” said Mandur. “A different way of asking makes a different way of learning and teaching.” The two, and Gerow’s apprentice Alex
Erickson, set up shop in a driveway of a Tuck Ave. house in Terrace and have been working steadily. The carvings are being made from red cedar, and the process of making each one takes roughly one month, said Gerow. The first step is selecting the wood. “It’s better to go through a whole pile (of logs) and say this one, that one, this one,” said Mandur, who added that old logs are preferred because they’re dry and therefore easier to carve. “The sap is out of it,” he said. Then, limbs and bark are stripped, added Gerow. Carving is usually done on the side opposite to where the limbs have been growing. “The knots are like pebbles,” said Mandur, explaining why carving on them doesn’t work. After a log is stripped, the centre line is found and it is cut to the desired size. “Then you start putting in your design,” said Mandur. “You make a template, start on one side, and then you work from there.” The drawing is the two-dimensional element to the piece, and from there wood is stripped away. “You have to make it three dimensional,” said Mandur. Gerow has taken each of the finished carvings to the three dimensional stage, and Mandur has worked on his own alongside him. “I get it right down to

Probe of police actions wanted THE BC Civil Liberties Association wants an independent investigation into a May 15 incident in which a local man had a spit hood placed over his head by police officers. In a press release June 12, the association says William Watts, 36, received “multiple head injuries and alleges he was punched after he was handcuffed, subjected to racial taunts and had his head put in a bag by police.” A spit hood is a bag which, when placed over the head of someone, prevents a person from spitting onto a another person and can catch and retain blood, vomit and other material. The civil liberties association said Watts had originally called 911 asking for help with a family member. According to a Terrace RCMP detachment news release for the 24-hour period in question, officers did respond to a call for assistance. “A man reported that a woman was breaching her conditions of no consume alcohol on Davis Ave. Police arrested the woman for breach [of those conditions],” the police release on the incident stated. “The man became agitated and aggressive towards others in the residence including children. Police arrested the 37 year old man. The man was aggressive and non compliant and stated that he was going to spit into the face of the police officer. A spit hood was placed on his head to prevent this,” the release continued. The release also stated information was being forwarded to provincial crown lawyers with a view to charging a 35-year-old woman with breaching her conditions. The civil liberties association said the
Watts incident is the second this spring involving an aboriginal person and Terrace RCMP officers. In the first, Robert Wright, 47, suffered a head injury April 21 and was taken from detachment cells to Mills Memorial Hospital several times and finally to Vancouver via air ambulance for treatment. New Westminster police are investigating this incident and there’s no indication of when that might conclude. That incident began when he was placed in custody after his wife called for assistance, according to the association. The civil liberties association news release says Wright has “recently come out of the coma he is in, but is seriously brain injured.”
The two incidents, together with one in Prince Rupert where the arm of a 15-yearold girl was broken after her family called RCMP for assistance, “suggest to us that there is a serious systemic problem,” says civil liberties association president Robert Holmes. “No group in society should be afraid that calling the police for help is more likely to result in serious injury for a family member or friend than a peaceful resolution of a problem,” said Holmes. He called for better training of RCMP officers. “What they’re doing right now isn’t working,” said Holmes. Terrace RCMP Constable Angela Rabut, who speaks for the Terrace detachment, says
RCMP upset at release THE RCMP says it’s disappointed the BC Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) is speaking out now on three northwestern incidents involving injuries to people who were in their custody. Speaking today, RCMP Superintendent Ray Bernoties said he was “disappointed that the BCCLA would grandstand on these files when they know full well that there are independent external investigations ongoing by the New Westminster Police, Delta Police and the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP.” “The BCCLA would be the first to criticize the police, and has in the past, for speaking publicly about a complaint while
it is still under investigation. If nothing else, they should hold themselves to their own standard,” he said. Bernoties said he questioned the objective of the civil liberties association. At issue is an incident in Prince Rupert in which the arm of a 15-year-old girl was broken after police were called to her house, a second incident involving the hospitalization of a Terrace man with head injuries after he was taken into police custody and, in the third incident, the placing of a spit hood over another Terrace man. The civil liberties association says the three incidents, all involving aboriginal people, and all of which took place this spring st

the man in the spit hood incident was arrest for assaulting a police officer and the woman was arrested for failing to comply with an earlier undertaking. Information on both people was forwarded to provincial Crown Counsel lawyers for charge approval, she said. “Both of these people were arrested and released when sober the next morning,” Rabut said in a statement released June 12. She said an outside agency was not called in to investigate. “Outside agencies are called in for an investigation in matters of death or serious injury,” said Rabut. “In this matter, there were not injuries to prompt consideration of an outside police force being called in for an investigation.”

are signs of a “serious systemic problem.” Delta police are investigating the first incident, the New Westminster police the second and third is the subject of a complaint to a commission which looks into complaints against the RCMP. “It’s important to note that these are unsubstantiated allegations at this point and thus, it would be inappropriate for me, or frankly anyone, to speak about these incidents while they are being investigated,” said Bernoties. “If charges are laid against an RCMP member in any of these matters, we will proactively inform the public, as we do in every case of an RCMP member being charged,” he said.

BUSINESS REVIEW Green light for AltaGas project CALGARY-BASED AltaGas has received environmental approval for a second run of river project north of here. The company, which is already building a $700 million Forrest Kerr run of river project on the Iskut River, will now proceed with a $217 million project at nearby McLymont Creek. Environmental approval was announced today by the provincial government following a review by the provincial environmental as-
sessment office. McLymont Creek will produce up to 70 megawatts of electricity and it will be sold to BC Hydro. Sale terms have not been released. According to information provided by the provincial government, the project will take three years to build, generating the equivalent of 100 to 120 full and part time jobs. When finished, the project will provide two to four full time positions. The larger Forest Kerr project
will employ up to 14 people when finished. The province says local and provincial taxes generated over the 40-year lifespan of the project will be approximately $140 million. Electricity from McLymont and Forrest Kerr will flow via a transmission line into the Northwest Transmission Line now under construction. AltaGas is pursuing approval for a third project in the area, Volcano Creek, which would push its north-
west spending to approximately $1 billion. Compared to Forrest Kerr’s 195 megawatts and McLymont’s 70, Volcano Creek is much smaller at 16 megawatts. McLymont Creek and Volcano Creek are within the traditional territory of the Tahltan and its governing body, the Tahltan Central Council, has already negotiated a benefits agreement providing jobs, business contracts, cash, revenue sharing, profit sharing and an ownership stake.
“The Tahltan Nation participated in the environmental assessment and the proponent continues to directly consult and involve the Tahltan Nation in the project. The province is satisfied that the Crown’s duties to consult and accommodate First Nations’ interests have been discharged as they relate to the decision to grant the [environmental assessment] certificate,” the province stated in a release. Work includes 9.5 kilometres of new main access
road to the main powerhouse, 6.2 kilometres of new access road from the powerhouse to the intake on McLymont Creek, a 10-kilometre, 69-kilovolt transmission line from the Forrest Kerr project to McLymont as well as other components located on McLymont Creek. McLymont is scheduled for a late 2015 completion while Forrest Kerr is to be finished by mid-2014. That’s when the Northwest Transmission Line is to be finished as well.
Just you wait, says minister NORTHWEST COMMUNITY College is experiencing the first of what promises to be a series of challenges as the regional economy heats up. It’s had to scale back the hands-on portion of a heavy equipment operator training course from two shifts a day to one because it can’t find enough instructors. That’s reduced the number of students that can be instructed at any one time from 10 to five at a time when demand for skilled operators is increasing. And in another program, carpentry, students say they can receive cash incentives from employers not to return to continue apprentice training simply because they’re needed on the job. Provincial jobs minister Pat Bell heard these stories and more on a recent tour of the college’s trades training facilities in Terrace. “If you think it’s bad news right now, just wait. It’s just awful in the Peace,” said Bell of the overall strain on finding employees because of the ongoing demand for people coming from that region’s oil and gas industry. “Why would anyone want to make $70-75,000 [a year as an instructor] when he can, with a Class A welding ticket, make $200,000 a year in the field,” said Bell. Bell’s tour at Northwest Community College included
viewing students using its heavy equipment training simulators and a visit to the motocross track just past the airport where students who have completed simulator training, polish their skills on the real thing. College trades chair Brian Badge, one of the college officials who toured Bell around, said equipment for electrical training needs to be replaced. The heavy duty equipment program could also use new equipment, Badge said. Bell acknowledged that one of the biggest challenges is finding the money to buy new and often expensive equipment. Badge and other college officials also said there was a disconnect between the people who live in the northwest and the demand for skilled labour that’s now beginning to build. Bell predicted that the region and the west in general will see more and more people move in from Eastern Canada because of declining employment prospects there. “I see a depopulation in the next decade in Ontario and Quebec,” said Bell. “I think they’re in trouble there.” The minister visited college facilities across the northwest in addition to Terrace, saying conversations with college officials help in deciding how best to provide capital and operating budgets.

Check out your own town KERMODEI Tourism wants local business owners and staff to become tourists in their own town so they can better help visitors. “I’m always saying we’re the next best town in B.C.,” said Graham Genge, executive director of Kermodei Tourism. “We could be the next Whistler or Fernie.” Genge spoke during two “get to know your own” presentations June 7 at the Sporstplex. Roughly 60 people attended the two sessions, more than expected.
The sessions covered ways to promote Terrace and local business through social media and web applications and saw presentations from community leaders and tourism operators. Presenters ranged from arts and culture leaders, to tour operators, to those in the hospitality industry, with the general idea being that the more locals know about events and activities in Terrace and the Northwest and can talk about confidently, the more tourists will want to stay. Until the session, many in the
room had never heard of Nass Valley Tours, Steven Johnson’s two-yearold tour company that offers tours of Nisga’a Memorial Lava Bed Park. The business promotes local artists, provides jobs for people in the Nass, and, according to Johnson, shows visitors the area’s best kept secret, the campground at the top of the park. “The more businesses promote and pass on information, the more successful events will be,” said Genge.

Doggone it CITY council decided far too quickly to spend $50,000 of local taxpayers’ money to fix something that’s not of its own making. It involves a budget cut taking a Canadian Border Services Agency dog and handler from Prince Rupert and a vacant RCMP dog and handler position in Prince Rupert that’s paid for by the city there. That leaves just one RCMP dog and handler for the northwest based in Terrace. The fear is that this position will be moved to Prince Rupert in part to cover the loss of the border dog. Part of the problem is a decision in Prince Rupert to spend its dog budget on a senior investigator instead. As well, the Terrace dog position cost is covered by the province, leaving the city, which has the benefit of the service, with little or no say in what might happen. The RCMP-crafted solution accepted by council is for both Prince Rupert and Terrace to cough up $50,000. Add that to the dog budget for Terrace and the RCMP reckons it can place dogs in both cities. Wait a minute. Did someone at least ask why Prince Rupert wants an investigator instead of replacing a dog? Where’s the rationale here? And what of the border dog? So much for security when it comes to the port at Prince Rupert. Who knows what’s inside those containers rolling through Terrace.

Speaking up is good for your health
ast night the scream of an approaching ambulance siren woke me in the wee hours. The siren abruptly died nearby. In the news I read that a man had been killed. He had been lying in the middle of the access road in front of Costa Lessa Motel when he was hit by a vehicle. Why this popularity of risking death? Last Friday after supper four or five young people in their early teens, several with a bike or a skateboard, gathered to chat sitting down on the pavement at the intersection of Haaland Avenue and Crescent Street. Instead of moving off to the side when traffic approached, they stayed put in the middle of the pavement so that four vehicles had to line up single lane as though passing a paving crew. Judging by the burn marks left on the asphalt by accelerating vehicles doing doughnuts at that intersection it’s a favourite night time playground for aggressive drivers. But do they and the mannerless teens not consider what might happen if another nut sped around the sharp corner on to Haaland heading for

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI Walker Street and couldn’t stop in time? I can imagine the parents’ excuses, putting the blame on the driver who bumped into their loitering kids. Loitering has become an after school pastime in our area. A recent RCMP incident report for Thornhill has this item: group of loitering youth hanging out on Dobbie Street causing mischief. Ongoing problem. I know of several incidents that could have led to this item. First, a group of four or five boys with skateboards hang around the Dobbie Street bus shelter that sits within inches
set these kids straight. And 50 years ago our jails weren’t overflowing with juvenile delinquents. I have always felt a duty as a citizen to speak up to shortcut vandalism or any crime against personal or public property. Since an expert on Anderson Cooper’s noontime show said stewing is harmful to your health, it is far better to speak up, I feel even more responsible to head off crime. For a start, I was dropping off a donation to the Salvation Army when a five-year-old boy swung from two hangers holding suit jackets while he yelled to another kid out of sight across the store. Three women customers chatted with the cashier as close to the kid as I was but no one paid any attention to him. I could picture the suit jackets falling to the floor for him to trample. Impulsively I lightly smacked his bluejeaned butt. “Quit swinging on those clothes. This is no playground.” He dropped his hands and looked up at me in surprise. One of the three women nudged him and half whispered, “Go find your brother. We’re leaving now.”

of my front fence. Often you can hear them pounding the walls of the bus shelter with their skateboards or they sit lined up on the bench like crows on a hydro wire. Last week they pounded off one front plywood panel and left it lying in the grass. A phone call to regional district saw the shelter repaired within four hours. Two nights ago the boys were back at the shelter. After a few thumps, I spoke to the boys. “That’s public property,” I said. “You have no right to damage it. I don’t want to see it damaged again.” The smallest boy fired off an “f” word to impress his friends. Second, someone threw a Molotov cocktail against the north wall of Copper Mountain School. A phone call to School District 82 and maintenance promptly painted over a broad wall area to obliterate the burn marks reaching almost to the eaves. Staff also picked up the largest pieces of broken glass bottle and one scorched sock. I marvel at how neighbours can both see and hear what goes on but no one seems incensed enough to speak up.

The Mail Bag We need trains instead of cars
CONSERVATIVE PRIME minister Stephen Harper on the campaign trail during the spring 2011 federal election.
You can’t mess with the facts Dear Sir: My big problem with the governing party is just their behaviour. They strive to exert total control of information available to the public, or even their own departments, they strive to control the language of the mes-
sage, and they demand that the message reflect their view of the way they want the world to be. Not the way it is, the way they want it to be. In order for them to achieve this, they need to create an analysis that fits their own purpose. In short, they need their
own facts. The big problem with this approach, is that the facts are the facts, and that can’t actually be altered to serve any particular point of view without altering what people understand the facts to be. In other words you
have to lie a lot. (Unparliamentary language; so sue me.) All of our federal parties have been guilty of this behaviour from time to time, but as a long-term observer of federal politics I must take my hat off to Prime Minister Stephen Harp-
er on this score. He slays ‘em. The other big problem is that although everyone is entitled to their own opinion, you are not entitled to your own facts. John Baird is a case in point.

Dear Sir: Enbridge is now in the media-promotion phase of gaining approval for Northern Gateway. A simultaneous media event is the United Nations’ report “Global Environmental Outlook”. Bad news, of course, which Enbridge is party to and Northern Gateway supplements. Northern Gateway promotes the ideology of the car economy and China is the biggest customer. The pipeline is a supplement, but a side issue. Not until we replace cars with trains will this story end, ruined coast and all. Oil needs to be conserved for the future and refined here for domestic emergency priority that is beyond stockholder interest. All transport other than emergency and utility must, and will, convert to fixed-rail. On Enbridge’s reporting to have agreement with 60 per cent of First Nations, and given the Gitsxan schmozzle, the natural question is who has signed on with Enbridge? What level of representation has a community had in determining the decision, that is, what democratic process, to the point of referendum, has occurred and is desired? Being clear on that would help others accept, or not, the will of an increasing majority, if in fact there is one. If not, then arguably the environmentally less endangered places on the pipeline route would favour it more. Separation of the inland and coast concerns is necessary. Polling would arguably show far less support for Gateway among coastal Nations than among interior. Only with equal majority support all along the route can Enbridge honestly represent support as a single a single figure. This is a regional conflict, as well. Majority support everywhere east of Gitsxan but minority west would say a lot, and what would it tell us to do? That is what Enbridge is trying to persuade on, and that may be what the Nathan Cullen is troubled over, as the editor writes. Dr. David Heinimann, Terrace, BC
After 31 years, it’s still all about the students
ehaviorist psychologist B.F. Skinner once commented that, “Education is what remains when what has been learned has been forgotten.” Although paradoxical, the idea is substantially true. Spending 18 years or so on my own formal education, and 31 years devoted to that of young people, I’ve had plenty of time to forget, and still to feel enriched by education. In deciding to retire from School District 82, I’ve spent considerable time thinking over my past career (its various assignments, personalities, satisfactions and annoyances), but also about some of the changes to education brought about through social and political change, and technological advancement. Teachers today use desktop computers, high-speed photocopiers, YouTube videos on overhead video projectors, smart boards, web-search library programs, email collaboration with colleagues and students both here and around the world, satellite programming, smart phones and occasionally still, a green “blackboard.” The
only one of these present when I began my career was the board. The students are strangely the same, though. Although kids today are considerably more techsavvy than my generation was, they are still the confused, impatient, bright, hopeful, energetic humans adolescents have always been, perpetual reminders of our own disappeared youth. To envy them is natural. To resent them, even when they become foolish or inconsiderate, would be churlish. Teaching has always been devoted to learning, and not just other people’s learning. Psychologists and learning theorists know that the best way truly to learn something is to learn it well enough to teach it. I sometimes imagine I’ve learned far more from my classes than I’ve taught. Each class has its own blend of student abilities and energies. Add to this the fact that each student is his own composite of previous experience, personal preferences, strengths and weaknesses, and one finds each class a unique experience. Teaching is a process that requires much quick thinking. If the
AL LEHMANN way to make God laugh is to tell Him your plans, I learned early on that the best-crafted lesson plans sometimes go awry. Knowing how to artfully bail when the boat is sinking is an irreplaceable skill in teaching. Whatever its numerous frustrations (sometimes students fail), teaching has been a strange, perpetually challenging experience. Those who imagine teaching as an “easy” career should be reminded that others’ expertise al-
ways looks easy. Though governments grudgingly pay education’s bills, they are unusually skillful at driving good education toward mediocrity. Sometimes they’ve been well meaning; usually they’ve been ham-handed and if not intentionally so, destructive nonetheless. Efforts to superimpose a business model onto education have been like trying to put stockings on a pig: it doesn’t make the pork any better, and the pig doesn’t like it. Schools are as good as the people who work in them and use them. We’re not trying to churn out a uniform product to some industrial standard, a truth those in power are reluctant to learn. Working with my professional colleagues has almost always been a privilege. My professional union is more democratic than the legislature, and responsible to an exemplary degree, as one would expect from people educated as well as they are. To grads that confide in me that they’re thinking of becoming teachers, I usually advise that with hard work they will likely become fine teachers. But given
the political climate today, I don’t recommend it. Certain experiences become stamped on your memory in a long career. After an “inspired” lesson many years ago on time travel (related to some science fiction we were reading), one junior high student raised his hand and solicitously asked, “Mr. Lehmann, are you on some kind of medication?” Hmm. I met some former students who’d been out of school for about ten years. They still addressed me as “Sir” and inquired, “We were a pretty badass bunch, weren’t we?” When I assured them that I thought they’d been a decent group, one replied, “Yeah, we were scared of you, man!” Moi? One morning after I’d spent three or four minutes chastising an underperforming group, a First Nations boy put up his hand and guilelessly asked, “But you love us, right Sir?” Well, yes. Perhaps that kind of says it all. I haven’t forgotten that. Terrace teacher Al Lehmann is retiring this month.

Facts are the facts rid of Statistics Canada, or crippling its ability to do its work will serve the Harper agenda nicely. According to those who know, the mandatory census makes all kinds of sense. But if what you want to do is present your own facts it is best to make sure the truth is suppressed. Harper argued that the mandatory census was an affront to democracy and not to be tolerated. Democracy takes work. It depends on information, and truth, and a societal even visceral sense of civic duty. It means believing that Citizenship has ob-
ligations, not just privileges. To satisfy those obligations, citizens need to have the facts. Those who would subvert that need are enemies of democracy. Dave Menzies, Terrace, BC

RELAXATION MASSAGE relieves tension & stress, soothes the soul
Doctors’ spin just won’t work Dear Sir: Well, here we go again: another multi-million dollar public relations campaign from Enbridge. I guess “Ethical Oil” wasn’t as successful in brainwashing British Columbians as they had hoped it would be. Ezra Levant tried to convince us that it was our duty as Canadians to let Alberta send its unprocessed bitumen to China because somehow that was more “ethical” than importing oil from Middle Eastern countries. He just forgot to point out a few facts such as that China happens to be a Communist military dictatorship with an abysmal human rights record, and that eastern Canada is forced to import most of its oil from these “unethical” sources because, well, Alberta exports almost all of its oil. Now, the spin doctors at Enbridge are using a cutesy cartoon ad, television ads and website to convince us that Northern Gateway is a “path to our future.” They’re hauling out all the old promises about “thousands of jobs,” “new trading partners,” and “worldclass safety.”

servative fact: Vic Toews announced that the crippling explosion in prison population predicted as a result of the omnibus crime bill had not occurred. The naysayers were all wrong! He made that statement five weeks after the bill was passed. You can’t get caught charged and tried in five months let alone 5 weeks. But don’t bother the minister with the facts. He doesn’t like them. The best thing the Conservatives can do to ensure their view prevails to make sure no one has the facts. They are doing a good job there. Getting
When Mr. Baird became the Minister of Foreign Affairs, he sat down at his new desk and the first words out of his mouth to the civil servants present were that he did not want to hear from any experts on the Middle East file. Baird saw no reason to make any use of this most valuable resource. No need to because the party had its Middle East policy already set, and he didn’t want to listen to anyone who maybe actually knew something about the issues. That would just upset him.

Whose future exactly is Enbridge talking about, I wonder. Certainly not that of generations of British Columbians yet to come. We’re being asked yet again to accept the inevitable pipeline leak or oil tanker spill as the price for a few short-term construction jobs and even fewer permanent ones. Enbridge’s whole philosophy since day one has been based on the premise that everyone’s consent can be bought. It’s just a question of how many pieces of silver it will take. And they’ve obviously got deep pockets. Putting pipelines filled with bitumen and condensate through our mountains and over our rivers is crazy. Taking a tanker eight times the size of the Exxon Valdez down the Douglas Channel almost every day is crazy. Our descendants will curse us forever if we allow this to happen. No amount of spin doctoring and phony promises will change those facts. Andrew Williams, Terrace, BC

School district budget less than last yearâ€™s By Anna Killen THE Coast Mountains School Districtâ€™s board of trustees has voted unanimously to approve a 2013 budget of approximately $52.5 million, almost $900,000 less than the year before. The reduction reflects a projection of fewer students when school doors open this fall, said school board chair Art Erasmus. â€œFewer students means we need fewer teachers,â€? he said of one area of cost reduction. Figures prepared for the board indicate the district is expecting 140 fewer students this fall. The student count this month, not including correspondence students or pre-school enrollment, is 4,800 which in itself is a drop of 99 students from last fall. Balancing the budget was â€œa long process,â€? said board chair Art Erasmus. â€œBut we followed the law.â€? Erasmus did add that the district did receive $600,000 from a provincial government account meant to provide more assistance for classes containing larger numbers of special needs students. And it also received $99,000 for a program to emphasize reading for kindergarten to grade 3 students. Erasmus said school boards are required by law to submit a balanced budget to the provincial government. Failure to do so can result in school trustees being fired and replaced with a provincial appointee, robbing voters of their vote. But this process proves difficult when department wish lists tally up to more than the board can afford. In the case of the Coast Mountains district, the board had to trim close to $500,000 off of the departmentsâ€™ initial wish list in order to submit a bal-
anced budget by the deadline of June 30. This is the first year the board implemented a budget working committee, made up of students, staff, principals, administrators and trustees, to look at what the district could cut and what it should keep. The committee held seven meetings over the last few months, finding around $478,000 in savings. The remaining $31,000 of cuts were found by the business committee. Erasmus said money is being saved thanks to the closure this month of Thornhill Junior Secondary School and the dispersal of its students to either the Skeena Middle School or Caledonia Senior Secondary School. â€œYou can turn the heat down and thereâ€™s less maintenance,â€? he said. Aside from fewer teachers, the school district wonâ€™t need as many support staff because of Thornhill Juniorâ€™s closure. Trustees praised the new collaborative budget committee process, citing it as an educational opportunity to better understand the districtâ€™s wants. â€œThe process weâ€™ve started is working well, all partners are on the table, and the department is working well,â€? said Kitimat trustee Raymond Raj. One B.C. school district is refusing to balance their budget, saying they cannot make any more cuts and still provide a quality education. The Cowichan Valley board is asking for support as it plans to submit a budget more than $3.7 million in the red. When asked if the Coast Mountain trustees would be supporting the Cowichan board, Erasmus said the boardâ€™s position was clear. â€œCertainly we could use more money,â€? he said. â€œBut weâ€™re going to act in accordance with the law â€“ thatâ€™s why we presented the balanced budget.â€?

■ Down she goes AN OLDER home on the corner of Lazelle and Munroe was demolished this month, one of several older homes that have been pulled down in the city this year. Newer homes are springing up on other lots once occupied by older homes, but there’s no word on what will happen at this particular location.
Airport numbers climb THE NUMBER of people using the Northwest Regional Airport continues to climb with May’s numbers being the second best of any month on record. The 11,994 passenger movements for May fell just short of the best-ever monthly total which was 12,319 last July. May’s numbers were approximately 1,000 over those of April. Airport manager Carman Hendry said May’s numbers confirm a pattern of increasing use which began last summer. “That’s when we started to see growth,” said Hendry in referring to increased activity based on the improving regional economy. Up to the end of May this year, the number of passengers passing through the airport numbered 52,753, far and away clear of the January to May 2011 total of 44,125. Last year 120,384 passengers passed through the airport, the second best year on record. The record year, so far, is 2007 with 122,070 passengers.
Hendry said improvements and expansions over the recent years, particularly in the area where passengers wait to board, mean the airport is well equipped to handle an increase in traffic. “The airport is capable of handling 140,000 passengers a year,” he said. “We’re well within the capacity of what we can handle.” Airport officials have also looked at what airports in Kelowna and Fort McMurray, for example, went through for an insight of what to expect during growth periods, Hendry added. The two airlines connecting Terrace with Vancouver, Air Canada Jazz and Hawkair have both added weekday flights and have beefed up weekend flights to meet demand. Hendry said the airport has not fielded any calls from other airlines, either those offering scheduled flights or those offering charter services. Hendry did note that the airport does not keep track of passengers arriving on charter or private aircraft.

We proudly support... National Aboriginal Day!
Governor General declared National Aboriginal Day PROCLAIMED by the Governor General in 1996, National Aboriginal Day provides an opportunity to acknowledge the unique achievements of First Nations, Métis and Inuit in fields as diverse as agriculture, the environment, business and the arts. In cooperation with aboriginal organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21st for National Aboriginal Day because it is also the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. For generations, many aboriginal peoples have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day. The Canadian Constitution recognizes three groups of Aboriginal peoples: Indians (First Nations), Inuit and Métis. Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs. On June 21st or on other days depending upon local tradition, thousands of Canadians across the country will celebrate National Aboriginal
Day. This is a special day to celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. A truly nationwide celebration, National Aboriginal Day is part of the “Celebrate Canada!” program, which also includes Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (June 24), Canadian Multiculturalism Day (June 27) and Canada Day (July 1). Although June 21 is officially National Aboriginal Day, the day is being celebrated this year in Terrace on Saturday, June 23 in George Little Park. In the Nass Valley the day is being celebrated on June 21 at the national Nisga’a Museum (Hli Goothl Wilp Adokshl Nisga’a) in Greenville where the first 10 people will be admitted at no charge. There are also celebrations in New Aiyansh for all ages. One theme being promoted in New Aiyansh is cancer awareness.

Field schools open eyes of students NORTHWEST COMMUNITY Collegeâ€™s field schools offer a hands on and unique ability to study the geography and environment of the area while bringing students into First Nations communities. The Kitlope Field School takes place in the largest intact temperature coastal rainforests in the world. Students are guided by the Haisla and Henaaksiala people, and learn about the rich cultural history, and the special relationship to their ancestral home. The Haida Gwaii Field School gives students a chance to explore this unique island archipelago on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, and the Haida culture. Students learn about the ancient Haida history and archaeology, Haida life ways, and of the unique island geography and ecology. Students are based in the Skidegate area, but travel elsewhere, too. The Stewart/Telegraph Field School successfully blends the disciplines of anthropology, archaeology, geography and geology. While in Telegraph Creek, students get to learn from the Tahltan, about their territory, and their rich cultural history. Sheree Ronaasen, an anthropology instructor at NWCC whoâ€™s been key to the schools, says they have proven a very popular option for students who can earn between three and six university credits in two to three weeks of study. â€œWhat has proven to really resonate with field school students, in addition to the course content, is they gain an emotional connection to the land and people,â€? said Ronaasen. â€œThis allows students to develop a deeper understanding and respect for First Nations

NWCC nursing student Kim Latimer attended the Stewart/Telegraph field school in 2011 and one of the lasting memories for her was the sharing of knowledge from the Tahltan Elders who participated. â€œI really enjoyed hearing the stories the First Nations Elders told,â€? said Latimer. â€œTheirs is such a unique culture in regards to their traditions and background.â€?

Read all about it in the Nass Valley WITH ITS second edition just published, The Nass Valley News is on its way to becoming an information source for the Nisgaâ€™a Nation and others interested in events in and around the Nass Valley. At 16 tab-sized pages, the goal of the newspaper is quite simple, says editor Noah Guno. â€œIf we have an agenda itâ€™s this â€“ weâ€™re pro-Nisgaâ€™a,â€? said Guno, 34, a self-taught videographer from New Aiyansh in the Nass Valley who now finds himself working on the print end of the communications industry. The idea for a Nass Valley newspaper came from senior managers at the Nisgaâ€™a school district who have provided the core financing. â€œPhilippe Brulot the [district] superintendent kickstarted the idea,â€? said Guno. Day to day activities come under the eye of Kelly Rambeau, a principal in the school district. Despite what looks like tremendous growth in digital communications and in social media, Guno believes print still has a place as a method of distrib-
uting information. And itâ€™s within this context that Guno sees the Nass Valley News doing its most important work on a monthly publication schedule. â€œThis gives us a chance to showcase our youth, to hold them up to a positive light. We see the newspaper as an essential tool for our youth who are our next generation of leaders.â€? That means generating and soliciting material for the publication about youth activities. Contributors to date include the school district and the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment. Thereâ€™s also an emphasis on the Nisgaâ€™a language. â€œEventually weâ€™d like to have every article in Nisgaâ€™a and in English,â€? Guno states. â€œThat way we can really promote the Nisgaâ€™a language.â€? But thatâ€™s not to say the paper wonâ€™t be asking questions of activities within the Nisgaâ€™a Nation or looking for a wide variety of opinions. â€œWe want to be a voice, a platform to discuss issues and problems, a place for dialogue,â€? Guno said.

Miners distribute $20,000 to school and hospital will be able to go,” said Danuser. She said the money will go a long way to defraying the expense of travelling from the small community to the Cariboo. But when that trip can actually take place is not yet known because of the ongoing teachers’ contract dispute with the provincial government. Teachers aren’t taking part in extra curricular activities, for example. The Stewart Minerals North committee has also provided $10,000 to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation through the Mining for Miracles charity which is supported by the provincial mining and exploration industry and the hospital. “We’ve had children from Stewart who unfortunately have needed the services of the [children’s] hospital so this is most appropriate,” said Danuser. Donations from surpluses have become a tradition with the Minerals North conference. The conference this year was held in Burns Lake and it’s in Terrace next year. The Terrace session will mark the 25th year of Minerals North conferences in northern BC.

STUDENTS AT Bear Valley School in Stewart will have a chance to visit a historic mining town thanks to a mining conference held in their hometown last year. Minerals North 2011 generated enough of a surplus so that $10,000 is to be provided for a field trip to visit Barkerville in the Cariboo, announced conference co-chair Angela Danuser. “The school plans a trip every few years and it’s been a few years since the last one. So this is a good opportunity to become involved,” she said. Visiting Barkerville is a perfect fit for an activity to come out of Minerals North, an annual regional mining conference held in a different location each year, because it incorporates a mining theme, Danuser continued. “It definitely has an education component and when we ran it past the Mineral North head committee, they thought it was a fabulous idea,” she said. There are nearly 70 students this year from kindergarten to Grade 12 at the school. “Our hope is that as many students as possible

IT’S GOING to be an evening of memories this Friday, June 22, when anyone and everyone who ever went to Thornhill Junior Secondary School is invited to an event being held in its gym. The school, which opened in 1975, is closing after 37 years because of a general decline in student population in the area. The event, which begins at 7 p.m. and lasts until 10 p.m., is intended to provide an opportunity for enjoyment and to share memories. There’s going to be music and displays and food. One of the hallmarks of the school established over the years is the development of its band program headed by Michael Wen. Band students haven been perennial winners at national competitions. This year students recorded their best ever at Music Fest Canada. 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. Although the school may be closing, its presence will continue to be felt. Vice principal Bill Lenuik is moving practically next door to become the principal at Thornhill Elementary School. And principal Jane Arbuckle is moving to Caledonia Senior Secondary to become one of two vice principals at that school. Equipment and furnishings from the school will be divided up among schools remaining open.

Biking to work went over well BIKE TO Work Week participants cycled at least 2,800 kilometres to and from work May 28 to June 1, estimate local organizers. “Using average North American fuel economy for passenger vehicles, that’s a savings of 262.4 litres of fuel and based on Terrace fuel prices, that equals just about $350 saved by participants,” says Amy Klepetar, one of the local organizers of the biking campaign which was part of a province-wide effort. “By not burning that fuel, participants prevented between 600 and 700kg of CO2 from entering the atmosphere,” she added. Klepetar also estimated cyclists burned approximately 66,000 kilocalaries (each kilocalry represents 1,000 calories) in getting fresh air and exercise. In all, 100 people took part in Bike to Work Week by biking to work 266 times. Based on cyclists who reported in, there were 23 new cyclists while 13 people either walked or rollerbladed or used another form of transportation other than a motor vehicle. Another organizer, Tara Irwin, said the local committee was impressed with the participation. “We have a great platform and example to improve on for next year,” she said. Bike to Work Week participants held a barbecue June 1 at the Skeena Mall and joined in with the RCMP Bike Safety Rodeo. Rodeo organizer RCMP Constable Angela Rabut said 100 young cyclists had their bicycles checked and learned about the rules of the road. She said 35 volunteers from local businesses and emergency services agencies took part in the event.

If you are “sexually active, Students get own space you are at risk.” NORTHWEST COMMUNITY College students will soon have their own space at the campus here. Student union offices and a leisure area will be located in the current bookstore portion on the ground floor of the cafeteria building and part of a large meeting room just across the hall from the bookstore will be taken over for additional student activities. In turn, the bookstore will move to the former Kiva cafe location in the trades building and combined with a coffee shop service. “This will enable the bookstore to better serve NWCC learners
with an expanded textbook area and the new space will integrate instructional activities in food services, and daytime and evening access to computer workstations,” said the college in a statement. Students will also have free daytime use of sports facilities in the former Kiva space. The Kiva had been run as a coffee shop/restaurant and entertainment and meeting venue by a private operator through a lease arrangement with the college until it ended the lease this spring. It had been a popular spot for live music and events not always con-

nected with the college. Northwest Community College Students’ Union organizer Mikael Jensen said the shuffle will correct a longstanding deficiency. “This is the biggest campus of the college and there is no student space,” he said. “We’re very excited and it’s going to be a great space,” Jensen added of the pending move to the cafeteria building. He said the students’
union will now be able to hold events without having to work through a private contractor, which had been the case when the Kiva was in operation. The students’ union now occupies a cramped office next door to the former Kiva location. “We will be planning to make the space more of a destination,” Jensen said of the move he expects will take place by September. “And we’ll have free coffee.”

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.

Centennial Christian celebrates CENTENNIAL CHRISTIAN School graduated its third largest class ever in a ceremony held June 7. Principal Edgar Veldman described the 16-member class as tight knit and made up of high academic achievers. “Very, very strong academically. That’s what I would say. They really challenged each other and they really excelled,” he said of the class. A good number of the class is headed either to college or university in Canada and one student is going to attend post secondary school in Europe, Veldman added. He said he wouldn’t be surprised if a large number of the graduates also qualify for $1,000 scholarships that come from writing provincial exams. One highlight of the grad class for this year was a trip by ferry to the Alaska Panhandle and then on to the Yukon before returning south via bus to Terrace. “They really bonded; they really came together on that trip,” said Veldman. The school’s largest grad class was 22 in 2010 and second highest was 19 in 2005. During the June 7 ceremony, scholarships were presented. The 24 scholarships come from local businesses and groups, from the school board, from local people and from the school’s teachers and groups within the school. A list of scholarship recipients is available by going to www.terracestandard.com and clicking on the community section.
CENTENNIAL CHRISTIAN’S 2012 grad class is, back row left to right - Matthew Buxton, Leareza Robinson, Brixton Sandhals, Jacob Mantel, Tyler Struyk, John Duncan, Maggie Haley, Amadeus Derrick. Front row, Monika Behnke, Miranda Tuininga, Sara Nutma, Karyn Roseboom, Krizia McDonough, Aimee Pelletier, Dorian George, Dorothy Jedrzejczyk. This is the school’s third largest grad class ever.
Parkside graduates prepared AFTER THE busiest year Parkside Secondary School has seen in history, around 40 graduates are ready to take on life’s next phase. And after graduating from a school that has a teaching style that is different than the traditional high school approach, many grads are grateful for their teachers and counsellors, and the alternative learning environment they experienced at Parkside. “I’m hoping to get into college,” said graduate Audriana Azak. She wants to study early childhood development. She said she was going to miss one of her teachers, Mike Havanas, the most. “He taught English, communications,” she ANNA KILLEN PHOTOS

said. “He was just awesome to have.” Valedictorian Raylena Lacroix sang Parkside’s praises as well. “I learned more in Parkside than Cal, Skeena, and the other schools I attended before,” said Lacroix, outside of the REM Lee Theatre June 14 as her class was lining up outside the lobby before the big ceremony. “I’m going to miss my friends,” she said. “A lot of them are leaving to study elsewhere, so I won’t get to see them again.” Lacroix feels ready for the next step in life. “I’m hoping to go to the college here,” she said. “Take a food course, and one day
own my own restaurant.” She’s also considering becoming an electrician — she has been working with her uncle on her house, and he’s been showing her the ropes. “So, I have two different paths in mind. One of them will work out,” she said. But first, she has to get through her valedictorian address — a task that is more than a little unnerving, she said. “I’m going to talk about stuff students have had to overcome, pressures, difficulties with friends, boyfriends and family. How we all go through these things and what we can learn from them,” she said, before running off to join her class.

She loves Drama Days DRAMA DAYS changed one girl’s life and her mom’s too in one summer. Tiyanée Wilson, 9, went to the week-long summer activity last year and had a blast. “I love acting,” she says, jumping up and down. She enjoyed entertaining people and pretending to be other people the most. Last year, the end of week production the young actors do was Grease and Tiyanée played Sandy, which meant she got to sing and sort of dance. “Not dance but she had some pretty good moves,” says her mom Erica. Tiyanée loves death scenes right now as she’s “very dramatic.” Erica got such a kick out of her daughter having so much fun that she decided to try out for the Terrace Little Theatre and ended up playing one of the starring roles in Crimes of the Heart. And she plans to try out for more parts. This summer, Tiyanée plans to suggest that drama days participants do Sound of Music and says if organizers take her up on it, she’d like to play oldest daughter Lisel or the title role of Maria. And if her friends could join her at drama days, it would be awesome. “I would love that,” she says. Drama Days for children takes place again this summer with camps in July and August. For more details, see the listing under Community Calendar.

We have been overwhelmed and deeply touched by all of the support we have received from family, friends and the community of Terrace. Just days after our son Jack was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Terrace had already started rallying for our cause. We consider ourselves fortunate to belong to a community that has come together so quickly and shown our family such overwhelming support and compassion. This experience has been a very humbling one to say the least, and we cannot express enough how grateful we truly are. From Fundraisers to words of encouragement and kind thoughts, every little bit has made a huge difference through this difďŹ cult time. Jack is doing very well with little side effects from the chemotherapy and has been able to continue with a lot of his regular day to day activities. Thank you again everyone for your support, The Armstrong Family *For those of you who are interested in following Jacks recovery we have created the Jack Armstrong wellness page on facebook.

Trail running offers ﬁtness with a view “WHY WALK when you can run,” says avid trial runner Nadene Butler. She’s been trail running for about seven years and considers herself addicted to the sport, which is growing in popularity across the region. She and her family, husband Troy and their two kids, often travel down to the Lower Mainland and the Sunshine Coast to participate in events — the last time she entered a race in Powell River, their hometown, she set the woman’s record and was ahead of the pack by half an hour. “Trail running is getting huge,” she says. “And up here in the north there are so many beautiful spots.” Plus, there is a great, active and involved outdoor racing community. Trail running is exactly what it sounds like — running on mountain trails that are usually used for hiking or biking. Nadene and Troy are hoping to revitalize the sport here in Terrace, specifically the 35th annual King of the Mountain footrace taking place on August 26. The race has seen its participant numbers dwindle over the past few years, but the couple hopes that by getting the word out early — and hosting a trail orientation run later this month — they can attract around 50 competitors. It doesn’t take much to get into trail running, Nadene says. “Good shoes, water, maybe a dog, music,” she says. It’s pretty simple. “You just have to watch where you’re going at all times,” she says. The Butler’s regularly run on the Johnstone Street trail, with their dog, Zipper, and stop to take in the view up top. “I lived here for years and never knew about this spot,” says Troy. Aside from the view, the workout
they get trail running trumps how their bodies feel after concrete running. With trail running, you’re using your whole body to stabilize, Nadene explains. “There are no cars,” she says. “You rarely run into anybody.” There are a couple of different options for beginner trail runners, depending on the level of athleticism. There are easy trails on Ferry Island, as well as the Howe Creek trail. The Johnstone Street trail is a good next step. Runners can even take the mountain bike loop all the way around, keeping in mind that bikers have the right of way — but it is usually easy to hear bikers coming, says Nadene. Another option is the new Steinhoe Ridge trail. Two kilometres are completed now, with six more to come. Access it from the recently completed T2 trail, which branches off the Terrace Mountain trail and crosses over Kitselas Road, leading to a beautiful viewpoint. It’s not as steep as the hiking trail. As with any sort of mountain sport, it’s best to have a buddy (or a dog) and to remember to be bear aware. The King of the Mountain footrace in August will have a slightly different course than years before, mostly so the race can avoid the highway. Maps will be available before the race, and Nadene and Troy are hosting an orientation run on Sunday, July 8 to introduce people to trail running and show them the route. For more information, call 250-638-2099, or simply meet them at the Sportsplex at 10 a.m. on the 8th. The Butlers will also be attending the 4th annual Salmon Run, this Sunday the 24th.

Peewees and squirts take top spots at tourny
HERE IS the 2012 Peewee minor softball team: from the back, left to right, coaches Dennis Bannister and Kevin Rose, Travis Bannister, Tyber Sharples, coach Errol Mutschke, Dylan King. At front, from left to right, Clayton Rose, Rhett Mutschke, Jackson Gagnon, Conor Watt, Ryan Praticante, with MJ Wraight lying in front.
TERRACE’S MINOR softball teams played terrific games at Smither’s annual tournament June 9 - 10, with both the squirts and the peewees taking first place in their division. The two bantam teams didn’t fare so well, taking 3rd and 4th place. Terrace’s four minor softball teams headed to Smithers for the weekend, ready to play rain or shine. Lucky for them, the sun made a rare appearance. “It was a beautiful weekend in Smithers,” said Jenice Wright, president of Terrace Minor Softball. “It was incredibly warm and it was sure nice to soak up some vitamin D. Our teams did fantastic.” The squirt team, coached by Jen Lindstrom and Heath Muller, took first place. In one exciting game, Delany Kitchen caught an infield pop fly for the first out, tagged first, then threw to second base for Mason Ritchie to tag and get three out — resulting in a triple play. “The fans were thrilled,” said Wright. The peewee team, coached by Kevin Rose, Dennis Bannister and Errol Mutschke, breezed through the tournament, going into
the final game undefeated. They won their final game and took first place in their division. The teams backcatcher, Tyber Sharples, was awarded team MVP for his great contributions to their win. Wright said the short season has been a success so far, with the kids enjoying the games (and, until Smithers, not the weather) and the parents and volunteers eating, sleeping and breathing baseball. “We are very grateful to the parents and our local business sponsors who do volunteer and put many hours on the ball field during the week, as well as practices on the weekend,” she said. Without sponsors and parental involvement, this great group of kids would not be able to play. The league is gearing up for Terrace’s annual tournament, held this weekend the 2224. Following that, the combined Peewee team coached by Geoff Watt of Terrace and Scott Groves of Smithers will be heading to Surrey to compete in the Summer Games July 19.

SalmonRun on Sunday THE 4TH annual SalmonRun is happening this Sunday, June 24 at the Kitsumkalum Ball Field. Appropriate for all ages and skill levels, participants can walk, run, jog, or push a buggy for 5 or 10 kilometres. The event has grown from 130 participants in its first year to over 300 people walking or running last year — plus another 200 cheering them on. Organized by the ‘Na Aksa Gila Kyew Learning Centre, the goal of the SalmonRun is to promote healthy lifestyle choices through physical activity, nutrition and encouraging positive healthy living. The event started because students in the community wanted the area to have an event similar to the Sun Run, in Vancouver. And over four short years, the event continues to grow. Registration starts at 9am, runners are on their mark and set to go by 10am. There is a salmon BBQ starting at noon to feed all of the hungry athletes and their families. Online registration is now finished, but participants can register in person at the event. More information can be found at www.salmonrunwild.ca.
Motocross in July CANADIAN KAWASAKI/ BCMA Motocross Championship Series: the north series continues with Terrace riders travelling to compete in Prince George this weekend. The Terrace Motocross Association will play host to the next match up in the series on July 21 and 22 at the Terrace motocross track, located just past the Northwest Regional Airport.
Softball gearing up TERRACE’S MINOR softball teams are gearing up for their annual tournament, held here this weekend. The Peewees and the Squirts are hoping to repeat their Smithers’ success, while the two Bantam teams are hoping to improve at home — and all involved are hoping for sunshine.
s a member of the Quality Waters initiative that led to the latest regulation changes for the Skeena, I’ve been in a position to hear and read lots of feedback. A veteran American steelheader and retired biologist, upon learning of the regulatory changes flowing from the QWS process, broadcast via e-mail that “The guides got their way.” His comment was so far off the mark, I could only assume that it had been engendered by the realization that he would now have to pay more for the privilege of steelhead fishing in a foreign country, and that he would not get to fish a few select hot spots every day of the week. His reaction, though illogical, was understandable. When you’ve been getting an unfettered world-class fishing experience for next to nothing, it’s hard to entertain restrictions to it. Years ago, when the notion of bringing in fee increases and restrictions to nonresident anglers was not much more than a rumour, an American multimillionaire angler called me up and asked if it a that such ideas would come to pass. He told me that he was considering buying a sizeable chunk of land on the Kispiox, and made it clear that before he finalized the transaction, he needed to know if he’d be forced to pay more to fish steelhead or be required to have a guide.

TOUR DE Jackpine rider Willie Muller leads the pack. Following closely behind we have Ron Hawes, Travis Carter, Neil Hodgson, Vince Drouin, and James Woodworth.
Tour de Jackpine was jumpin’ A RECORD number of participants came out for the 6th annual Tour de Jackpine bike race this year, with 38 competitors biking the loop on a blustery Sunday. The event drew participants from Telkwa to Prince Rupert. This year, competitors were able to choose their challenge level by the number of laps — one, two, or three times around the Jackpine loop. This attracted a healthy mix of first-time riders and longtime competitors, said event organizer Michael Bruce. The 32 kilometre route, boasting two long climbs and a “roller” section near the Jackpine flats subdivision, starts at the Thornhill pub, veers south on Old Lakelse road towards Hwy. 37, then north on the highway to Krumm road before heading back to the pub.
“Roller” sections are a series of short downs and ups in the road that allow cyclists to build up speed to help them on the next short ascent. If they are done right, they can help in a race. But if a rider loses momentum, they can be a real detriment to staying with the group. “There was some pretty fierce competition at the top end of the triple loop,” said Bruce. “Also some great efforts by everyone to finish with their best time for this course with other members of the riding community.” Eleven volunteers helped run the event by sweeping up debris, posting signs, registering riders, spotting at intersections, and laying out food and water, adding to the event’s success, said Bruce. For the second year in a row, the overall winner of the full three loop race was

allowed to fish the river above the power line approximately 2 kilometres above the Lakelse/Skeena confluence. Bear in mind, that guides can’t guide on the Lakelse. The guiding representatives pointed out that the over arching principle of the QWS process was a hierarchy of exclusion. Simply put, this meant that the first group to be restricted by provincial regulations are non-resident aliens, the second are non residents, the third are guides, and the last are residents. Under the old regulatory regime, guides couldn’t work the river while non resident aliens and non residents were free to fish it. To make matters worse, bed and breakfast outfitters were sending their clients to the rivers, and illegal guides were working the river. The committee’s final recommendation solved all these problems. When it came to the contentious Zymoetz, perhaps the world’s best summer steelhead stream, we hammered out an agreement with the guiding reps that the upper river should be for residents only during the weekends. Though this unprecedented idea may be a strain on guides in those years when water conditions are iffy, and a small inconvenience to unguided non residents, it affords the anglers who live and work in this community the prospect of better fishing and is consistent with the fundamental principle of the process.

Region needs to ready for the boom
But neither delve into what effect these projects and positions, once here, will have on the healthcare system, for instance, said Brouwer. And while the City of Terrace currently has a task force called the Community Impacts Committee, which focuses on identifying unintended consequences of incoming activity to Terrace and area and is looking at things like effects on local health care and city infrastructure â€” its scope is limited to being very local. â€œI think when we talk about community impacts in Terrace, weâ€™ve got a sense of some ideas of what
they could be,â€? said councillor Brian Downie after the meeting. â€œBut somebody in Hazleton or Stewart might have quite a different picture.â€? With a regionally-focused communication hub, it would enable all groups working to share their ideas in an open forum, said Brouwer. This would also help working groups to see if any of there mandates cross and if they can give each other a hand, creating efficiency through time saved that can then be used elsewhere. It can also help the region see, and agree, on needs that can then be communicated to the appropriate chan-
nels with a stronger, united, regional voice. â€œItâ€™s literally saying if we all have an idea of where weâ€™re all going then weâ€™ll get there better,â€? Brouwer said, adding levels of government are more likely to listen to 100,000 voices than 1000. The next steps for SNCIRE are to begin creating the communications hub â€” which will involve an online component. Simultaneously, SNCIRE will be meeting with regional stakeholders, gathering ideas, and looking for start-up monies. The estimated cash cost for the
THE CITY of Terrace and the Kitimat-Stikine regional district have started a Facebook page to provide information on the spring run off.

project is $188,000 and includes pay for staff members who will manage and organize content as well as drive some initiatives born of that content. In-kind donation requirements are estimated at $108,000 and SNCIRE is chipping in office space valued at $10,000. It has applied to the Real Estate Foundation BC for $94,000. Terraceâ€™s city council referred SNCIREâ€™s request for $7,500 to city staff who will later recommend if council should contribute or not. Brouwer said any spending now will provide a benefit later.
