City warns derelict building owners THE CITY of Terrace is putting its foot down on three local building owners with properties deemed dangerous and unsightly. Owners of three properties on Little Ave. — 4450, 4440, and Terrace’s first hospital at 4520 — have each recently received a letter from the city demanding they make plans to shape up their buildings and properties. After public complaints, some of which have accumulated over the years, it is not the first time the city has intervened over safety and appearance issues — the letters received by owners last week
mean the city is closer to reaching grounds to begin a demolition order process if action isn’t taken soon, said staff. “These last letters that were sent are really an ultimatum,” said city planner David Block, noting that applies more to 4450 and 4440 Little Ave. “The one farther west (4520) hasn’t had quite as bad a history.” But there are issues with the three nonetheless, he said. “They’re falling apart,” said Block. “At least some of the portions of the buildings on each property are sitting vacant and
unused.” Over the years, neighbouring residents to the properties have made valid complaints to the city, he added. “They’re unsightly, the yard areas aren’t getting maintained ... they’ve been boarded up, but some of that boarding has been removed,” said Block. “It’s almost a surprise that with evidence of people breaking in and sheltering or hanging out in the properties that they haven’t had fires in them.” Stray animals taking residence in the buildings is also an issue.
Letters were received by owners last week. “As your property may be adversely influencing the property values of other properties in the vicinity, it is perceived your building is a nuisance,” said a letter sent to owners of the three properties. “Buildings appear to be degenerating with no apparent plans in place to reconstruct or demolish the structures.” The letter further encouraged demolition to happen as soon as possible if that’s the intent — owners of 4520 Little Ave. demolished part of their building
after taking out a permit earlier this year. “At this time the City of Terrace requests that you present a proposal of your intended use of the property and the structures currently there with a timeline for that development,” said the letter. The deadline for such a response is August 30. Block explained that if action isn’t taken, there may be grounds for the city to begin the demolition order process on certain buildings — which would require a vote by council to proceed.

A DRIVE to get a dog moved to better living conditions took to the boardroom as supporters rallied to make their voices heard at the regional district meeting Aug. 10. Dog owner Paul MacNeil asked the regional district board to let his German shepherd Cain be moved from the Thornhill animal shelter to the Kitimat Humane Society where he and his supporters believe the canine would have better care until its trial day in December. He explained that Cain bit a child when cornered after being chased down the street by children with hockey sticks and three diesel trucks. The child’s skin wasn’t broken, he wasn’t taken to the hospital, didn’t have a bandaid put on and later on that same day was playing in his backyard, said MacNeil. “He did bite [the child and I’m not excusing that] but the Thornhill pound is not the place for a dog to be for a long time,” said MacNeil, adding he didn’t want to debate the case but just wanted his dog moved to the Kitimat shelter. Cain is in a four foot by 10 foot kennel and he’s an 85 pound German shepherd, said MacNeil. “I’m not allowed to see my dog on my terms,” he said. The Thornhill animal shelter is open from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and he works from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
he explained, adding that Cain passed an assessment for his temperament that was videotaped by dog trainer Kelly Ruff. Phyllis Gregg of Kitimat, who came up to help support MacNeil, said the Kitimat Humane Society was willing to take the dog and work with it as it had a lot of success rehabilitating dogs and would sign papers saying it would take full responsibility for the canine. If provincial court doesn’t order the dog destroyed, Cain can have a second chance and go to one of the German shepherd rescue groups that the shelter works with, she said. The group can then find the dog a suitable home, she added. Earlier in the day, regional district bylaw enforcement officer Murray Daly confirmed the dog was seized in April and said bylaw was seeking a destruction order for the dog. Daly didn’t want to speak about specifics of the case but did comment on the shelter keeping Cain. “I will say the dog is in our possession and until we’re ordered to do so by a judge, it’s not leaving our possession,” he said. “The dog is not being treated inhumanely,” he added, saying Cain was being fed and watered. “It receives all the treatment it would probably get at the Kitimat shelter.”

A Statement from Enbridge
The Facts On Pipelines Enbridge operates the largest and most complex liquids pipeline system in the world. We’re proud of what we do—helping to provide reliable energy to many millions of people across North America every single day. Over the last decade alone, we’ve transported nearly 12 billion barrels of crude oil with a safe delivery record better than 99.999 per cent. That’s good but, for us, it’s not good enough. Any incident tells us that we must do even better. We will never stop striving for 100 per cent. Operating a complex pipeline system is by its nature a challenging business. This is not new. Enbridge employees have successfully met these challenges for over 60 years—by placing safety at the heart of our operations. We constantly strive to do better. Particularly when it comes to the integrity and viability of our pipelines—which is, and must always be, our number one concern. Pipeline safety has been much in the news lately, and so it’s important to give the issue some context— to look beyond the latest headline and recognize the outstanding long-term safety record of this important energy delivery system. In fact, decades of experience have shown that pipelines are by far the safest, most eﬃcient method of transporting large volumes of oil. Historically, pipelines have had the least amount of releases of any mode of oil transportation. As a result of strenuous eﬀorts within our industry, releases have actually decreased over the past decade—both in terms of the number of releases and the amount of product released. Our goal at Enbridge is—and will continue to be—the prevention of all spills. In 2011 alone we invested about $400 million to ensure the safety and integrity of our system, and that amount is set to increase substantially—to more than $800 million—in 2012. Over the past two years we have doubled the number of staﬀ dedicated to leak detection and pipeline control systems, and substantially strengthened our focus on the tools, technologies and strategies to ensure the ﬁtness of our pipelines. This is not new, but rather part of an ongoing eﬀort to be the best in the business. In the past decade we’ve invested more than $3 billion in safety, integrity and new technology—and we’re planning more investment going forward. We continually evaluate the condition of our pipeline system to ensure long-term reliability and integrity. Enbridge is a Canadian success story, with a hard-earned reputation as a responsible corporate citizen. In a rapidly changing world we will continue to build on that foundation by continuing to adhere to a strong set of core values that reﬂect what is truly important to us as a company: the safe transportation of energy that millions of people rely on in their daily lives.

Legion, soccer lose major supporter A MAN well-known for his commitment to the community, the local legion and the game of soccer is being fondly remembered after his sudden death. Les Sinnott, 59, died after his vehicle went off Hwy 16 near the east entrance to the city in the afternoon of Aug. 4. Sinnott was said to be â€œin medical distressâ€? when emergency services arrived and was pronounced dead at the hospital. An avid and prominent legion member, he was a very big asset to the branch, said legion member Charlie Meek. â€œHe was just a terrific person to be around,â€? said Meek. Sinnott was a â€œgentleman, a kind person, definitely a loving husband, father, grandfather.â€? â€œHe appreciated life and valued life,â€? said Meek. â€œHe enjoyed what he was doing and enjoyed being part of the community of Terrace.â€? â€œWe lost a good friend and lost a good colleague. Heâ€™ll be real-
ly, really, sadly missed, not just by his family and friends but [also] by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch,â€? said Meek. At the legion, Sinnott was an associate member and helped out wherever he could. He was president in 2008 for two years, moving to past president and was treasurer for this year; his wife Debbie is the current legion president. He was born in Liverpool, England in 1952 and moved with his family to West Vancouver in 1965. He met his wife Debbie in 1977 and they were married in 1981. He joined BC Tel, the former name of Telus, in 1978. He and his family moved to Terrace in 2000 where he continued to work for Telus and retired in 2009. Dallis Winsor, a legion director, said on every Remembrance Day Sinnott was the â€œstolid and articulate voice of the legion at associated ceremonies.â€? He and his wife were
quick to help with legion projects. â€œI remember telling Deb then that I thought she and Les were the glue that held the Legion in Terrace together,â€? said Winsor. Terrace Youth Soccer Association president Bill Warcup said Sinnott always helped out with any issues or problems with his vast knowledge of the game. He said Sinnott will be â€œsadly missed in the community. He was always involved with everything, always involved in any kind of sport and anything that needed doing, he did it.â€? Sinnott was the district soccer rep and chair of the 2004 Boys B Provincial Cup for, played at Christy Park in Terrace. Sinnott wanted to put in a bid to bring the girls provincial soccer championship here for 2008, which was postponed. Soccer coaches here are carrying on those efforts. The BC Soccer Association posted a page in memory of Sinnott, who
LES SINNOTT, left, with Bill McRae and fellow legion member Peter Crompton, right. was first vice-president of B.C. soccer, calling him a â€œtrue friend and tireless supporter of our sport.â€? Sinnott was a BC Soccer Board leader since 2003, including being youth vice-president, chair of the governance committee from 2006, and first vicepresident as of 2009.
He was a regular B.C. board rep at provincial championships throughout the province, and was also the tireless â€œface of BC Soccerâ€? throughout northern B.C. As a member of the Canadian Soccer Association Governance Committee since 2008, he contributed to soccer
nationally as the soccer association developed its governance initiatives, which redefined how soccer is being led for the next decade in the nation. The BC Soccer Association sent some of its representatives to Sinnottâ€™s funeral service here earlier this week at Knox United Church
and plans to hold a reception later this month to honour him. At his service, local legion member Peter Crompton did the legion tribute to Sinnott. The legion tribute can be quite moving, said Meek, adding that part of the tribute is laying a red maple leaf on the casket.

A closer look at Ferry Island By Samantha Garvey
MANY RESIDENTS of Thornhill and Terrace make the Hwy16 drive past Ferry Island everyday. The 150-acre municipal park and campground is tucked between a fork in the Skeena River on Terrace’s southeast side – popular to visitors and residents for its trails, worldclass fishing off its banks, camping and more. It’s home to a rich and diverse ecosystem, with intricacies that some may be unaware of. But Riverboat Days 2012 included the Ferry Island Interpretive Walk where Terrace city councillor Brian Downie, who has 33 years of experience working in the forestry sector and Richard Krupop, who is currently working with forestry and has been for more than 25 years, led a tour of the island providing a look at the natural surroundings of the area through a different lens. Krupop and Downie, pictured at the bottom left of this page, explain: The island itself is static. Like most islands off the Skeena it will build up and break down over time. The island’s centre resembles a dense, shaded jungle. First to grow on the island was brush like Devil’s Club, which loves the sunlight and will reach up towards it. Next the coniferous trees, like Cottonwood and Birch and Alders, have grown together to create a canopy approximately 30 metres high. At their base are the deciduous Spruce, Cedars, Pine and Hemlocks which form the second, shorter wave of growth. On Ferry Island, street art makes way for tree art. The deciduous Cottonwood trees are covered with a thick soft bark; hikers and walkers on the island will come across several faces carved into them by local artist Rick Goyette. The ground is a utopia for growing. Because the island often floods, the silt from the river sits along the forest floor. The level of flooding this past spring can be seen by the level of silt found on some of the trees’ bases. The fallen leaves from the deciduous trees form a compost creating excellent soil for the diverse greenery on
the island. Because of this, many of the trees are much larger than average including the Red Alder tree (top right). Red Alder and Birch are very popular for producing furniture, but in the northwest they are not common enough to be logged. Nurse stumps are evidence of the early logging that took place on the island. However, the stumps are teeming with life, with moss, ferns and even some smaller Mountain Ash trees growing out their surfaces. At the south side of Ferry Island is an inlet of water called a back channel (top left). When the river rises, this channel fills, creating another ecosystem for fish to escape the high water. When the river is low, hikers and animals alike gain access to the smaller island by foot. Horse tails are long stiff shoots that grow straight up and look similar to onions. They are the oldest type of plant that can be found here. Finally, visitors to the island must notice the abundance of berries and flowers, edible and inedible (bottom right). Most common is the thimbleberry. A centimetre across, its juicy tart berry ripens in late summer and makes great jam. More edible berries and jam-makers include the Saskatoon and Salmon berries. The Osier Dogwood is a relation to B.C.’s provincial flower but it’s white berries, soon to turn red, are inedible. Also inedible are Mountain Ash and Elder berries but birds and bears find them to be a treat and Moose eat their woody stems as an important part of their winter diet. Common on the island are invasive species, not native to the land. The tansy and the purple Irish thistle are a couple of examples. However, the purple fireweed is natural to the land and is very sweet, even sweeter when it’s younger. As Downie and Krupop led the way, they couldn’t help but stop and admire the abundance of life that overflows Ferry Island. Constantly finishing each other’s sentences, their knowledge and passion for the natural beauty of their home land was easily shared with eager participants.
HIKERS AND walkers on the island will come across several faces carved into the thick bark of the red oak trees by artist Rick Goyette. THE ISLAND is home to many edible and inedible berries. The red thimble berry, top left, is edible. The Irish thistle, bottom left, is an invasive species. The flowering dogwood, pictured here top right with white berries, is not edible and will turn red later in the season. The purple fireweed below it is very sweet and can also make wine.

Forums If the City of Terrace had a budget-season chorus line, it would be, “We wish there was more money to go around.” Take community grants, which are scrupulously inspected yearly prior to the purse being closed with some groups left wanting. Still, organizations, community groups, volunteers and so on, approach council in the post-budget season asking for financial boosts. But there’s a limited honey pot from which to draw. The account for discretionary spending on things such as community requests after budget season holds $11,200 in it. Of that amount, the city plans to spend $7,000 on a forum it is hosting this fall, leaving $4,200 remaining with which council can help community groups in need and pay for unexpected expenses, like travel. But recently, it came to light that the city had $15,000 left over from a municipal training workshop that was held last November — when it decided to spend $10,000 of that on nine touch-screen tablets. As the money was collected through industry sponsors and forum fees charged, the city’s rationale for spending the money is there was no cost to taxpayers for the tablets. But there is. Taxpayers are covering the coming city-hosted forum. Money left over from one event could go towards paying for the next. If it did, more would be left for community groups, which make this city a more vibrant place to live. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

New driving law disregards tradition
lberta’s Distracted Driving Law has ended the tradition of farm kids learning to drive perched on Dad’s lap and steering a small tractor while Dad pushes the clutch and shifts the gears. My siblings and I learned to drive on an 8N Ford doing small jobs around the farm yard in second or third gear until we were experienced enough to travel farther afield. Besides learning to steer, while navigating the Ford we got the hang of clutching smoothly so we didn’t grind the gears, using hand turn signals when travelling a road or highway, and behaving safely and sensibly whether driving or riding. The grey Ford was a nifty workhorse with a top speed of 11.92 mph in fourth gear. We were restricted in fourth gear to a bump on the speed dial. When opening the throttle moved the lever close to nudging that bump – a speed that vibrated the fenders itching the hands of any passenger hanging on – we could settle for that speed or lose our driving privileges. None of us wanted to be banished from the Ford’s seat of power. Turning the key

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI in the ignition was a treat as well as a serious responsibility, even without a passenger or two standing with one foot on a running board, the other braced on the housing or rear axle. We drove the Ford choring around the farm, cultivating the small field of potatoes, planting shelterbelt trees, hauling out manure from the barns in winter, herding beef stock to summer pasture in the spring. With it we mowed, raked hay, pulled hayracks along while Dad pitched bales aboard, or distributing new posts and collecting old posts when Dad repaired fences.
– personal grooming. The law does allow such activities as talking to passengers, smoking, eating a snack or drinking. The fine for ignoring the law is $172. Drivers that exhibit what is deemed to be more serious or risky behaviors could be charged with ‘driving carelessly’ under the Traffic Safety Act. The penalty for the existing ‘driving carelessly’ offence carries six demerit points and a fine of $402. If a driver does commit a moving violation while engaged in one of these activities or any other deemed as a distraction, they could receive two tickets – one for distracted driving, and one for the moving violation. It also states that a driver cannot have a person occupying the front seat in a way that may impede the driver. So long as my brother displays an orange triangular Slow Moving sign on the back of the Ford he can legally drive it along city streets, but no longer can he have his grandson sitting on his lap, as that would be deemed a distraction to his own driving. Once again laws designed to curb idiots shortchanges the innocent.

For 20 years the Ford sat stored in a quonset so that today it is in almost mint condition. Its toolbox even holds two original wrenches with handles calibrated to measure gas left in the tank. My brother in Edmonton was teaching his 8-year-old grandson to drive the Ford down the back alley and along a quiet residential cul-de-sac before the law came into effect September 1, 2011. The law is government’s attempt to encourage drivers to focus on driving as opposed to applying makeup, watching movies, or eating corn flakes from a bowl in one hand with a spoon in the other. Specifically, the law restricts drivers from: – using hand-held cell phones – texting or e-mailing – using electronic devices like laptop computers, video games, cameras, video entertainment displays and programming portable audio players (e.g., MP3 players) – entering information on GPS units – reading printed materials in the vehicle – writing, printing or sketching, and

The Mail Bag Budget ofﬁcer is on the money Dear Sir: Say one thing, do another has been a long-standing practice of Canadian governments. Saying one thing and then doing something else entirely is even more popular than the second favorite procedure – addressing a problem by doing something that creates the impression, or perhaps illusion, that you are doing something about it, but in fact you are not and never really intended to. Federal Liberal governments in our recent history have done more than anyone in history to turn people off of political engagement through the over use of both of these tactics. Political observers know that a low voter turnout favours the incumbent, so why shouldn’t the party
in power try to disillusion the voters? That would just be good business. The result of this has been the creation of a deep cynicism in the Canadian electorate. And who can blame us? The Liberals could certainly talk the talk at election time. But they weren’t fooling any one; they would campaign like the NDP and then govern like the Tories. Most definitely the Liberals are as guilty as a puppy sitting next to pile of poo when it comes to the old policy switcheroo. (Remember Jean Chretien’s promise to “replace” the GST? Whoops!) But once again I am forced to admit that no matter how scummy their moral pit of putrescence became, the Liberals have got nothing on Steven
Harper on this score. What makes Harper so special is that he and his marionettes on his side of the house will say that the sky is yellow and it always has been if it suits them. And if you don’t think the sky is yellow too, it’s because you’re some kind of foreign-funded, job-killing radical. Consider the Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO), Kevin Page. By all accounts a serious-minded man intent on accomplishing his mission. The office was created by Stephen Harper, and a good thing too because it is needed. Straight from the Government: “The mandate of the Parliamentary Budget Officer is to provide independent analysis to
Parliament on the state of the nation’s finances, the government’s estimates and trends in the Canadian economy; and upon request from a committee or parliamentarian, to estimate the financial cost of any proposal for matters over which Parliament has jurisdiction.” Very recently Mr. Page requested information from 84 Federal Government departments so he could do some independent analysis of the impact of the Government’s 5.2 billion dollar cuts. This is the kind of thing that could be good to know. Are those cuts actually going to result in savings, or are they going to cost money?

Private sector trouble equals public sector strife Dear Sir: The barbarians are at the gates of their own demise after digging holes for resources all the way to China, leaving Canadians in poverty and an impotent service sector with bodies like Telus, B.C. Hydro and MHR Welfare Disability. As a disabled person, I’ve learned over the years what so many people are now learning. When the private sector gets in trouble, the
public sector blows you off. Last winter, I was threatened with Telus disconnection, owing $200. By May, I had paid it down to $60 when I was disconnected. I’ve since learned that that’s the general trend – 30 years a good customer but one late payment and you’re cut off. Being on a fixed income, I was broke until my next MHR cheque. Without phone services, it’s hard
to make doctor’s appointments and get medication refills. I paid the bill off and was reconnected in June. But in mid-June I was disconnected again because Telus didn’t make the connection properly. Apparently they do that – or don’t do that – a lot. When I got my next bill, it was after July 1 and I had to make payment before July 8 or face a pen-
alty. The bill, after all this, is $106, which is for reconnection and basic service. Some guy outside of the country takes inquiries, highlighting the outsourcing problem. There’s so much blarney and hubris, you might as well have dialed ‘M’ for madness, the current menu idiosyncrasies of phone-talk. MHR was paying my Hydro bill direct out of my cheque. It was
something like $65 per month. The year-end adjustment meant I owed $445. They also promised to disconnect me should I fail to comply. With the assistance of MHR, my monthly payment went from $91 to $105 and the total went to $139.33 to take care of the overdraft for one year included. This money comes out of my monthly cheque.

MLA taxpayer-funded pension plans need reform
ith just months until the next provincial election, the lifeboats are starting to fill up as MLAs of both political persuasions look to leave the ship of state. That means one thing: millions of dollars in pension payouts. Pension payouts that are primarily funded by taxpayers and taxpayer dollars. Dave Hayer is one of the more recent Liberal MLAs to announce he won’t seek re-election next May. He will be retiring after 12 years of elected life. The Surrey-Tynehead MLA served for a few years as a parliamentary secretary, inflating his best three years of earnings – the cornerstone of a pension calculation. Hayer’s annual pension will likely start with $47,600 at age 65. This will be increasing every year to more than $62,900 annually, should he live to be 80 years old. That works out to a lifetime
pension of about $824,000. On the other side of the aisle, retiring Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge’s Michael Sather should start with a pension of $28,500 after eight years as an opposition NDP MLA. His lifetime total will come in slightly under half a million dollars. Former Attorney General Barry Penner resigned his seat last year after 15 years as an MLA – he will start his retirement at age 65 with an annual pension of more than $78,500. His lifetime total will exceed $1.35 million. Kamloops B.C. Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger’s pension, by virtue of his two extra years in office, is even larger. Krueger’s first year pension payout is likely to be $87,700. This will be increasing every year to more than $115,700 annually at age 80. That’s a lifetime pension of about $1.5 million. Ironically, Krueger and Penner were two of the B.C. Liberal candidates who ran against gold-
plated MLA pensions in the 1996 election. Even though the Liberals lost, the NDP changed the pension rules to make it a much fairer system. Unfortunately for taxpayers, Premier Gordon Campbell took MLAs back to the gold-plated system in 2007.
He even allowed MLAs to buy back benefits to the richer plan for the years they served from 1996 to 2007. The extent of that buyback is still shrouded in mystery, and the government has refused to issue a list of MLAs who bought back into the richer plan. We do know buybacks cost taxpayers more than $20.9 million. Pension experts tell us that MLAs would be crazy – or incredibly principled – not to have bought back those years. And indeed we have heard officially of any MLA not buying back in. Premier Christy Clark bought back her missing years, confirming that fact last year. Media outlets interviewing retiring MLAs would be welladvised to ask politicians if they bought back into the bigger, predominantly taxpayer-funded pension. Under the current pension plan, taxpayers contribute $4 for every $1 a politician puts in. Retiring MLAs too young to
start collecting their pensions immediately are eligible for up to 15 months of salary after they leave office. If an MLA gets a job before the end of the 15 month period, the assistance is terminated. But if that job has an annual salary below $101,859, the taxpayer is on the hook for the difference. They can also claim an educational grant of $9,000. No one is saying politicians shouldn’t have a pension, but MLA pensions should reflect the real world and go back to the 1996 NDP model – invested in a group RRSP and matched dollar for dollar by the taxpayer. That’s a competitive pension package, and fair for both the MLA and taxpayers. Jordan Bateman is the British Columbia Director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. He previously worked for the Langley Advance newspaper and spent six years as an elected Township Councillor in Langley, B.C.

ONCE THE Red Cross Hospital, attached buildings on 4520 Little Ave. are in a state of disrepair. The photo above was taken in April 2012. The left-hand side of the structure has a municipal demolition permit taken out early this year, but as of last week most of the structure was still standing.
The worker asked, “Is that okay?” I said, “Beats freezing in the dark.” The provincial government hasn’t given disabled people an increase in so long, nobody knows. Christie Clark is the patron saint of just saying, “No!’ when it comes to improving our

Overhaul buildings, says city “It’s private property,” said Block, noting the difficulty of starting such a process. “(Building or property issues) have to run a long course and show a long history of the property owners not being responsible ... citizens to the point where it’s become a long-time nuisance.” This round of letters was sent under the city’s nuisance bylaw with a section that deals with untidy and unsightly properties. “That’s definitely one that there’s little or no compliance with,” said Block, adding a vacant property doesn’t necessarily mean a concerning one. Buildings that are secure, kept up, don’t pose hazards and are maintained or supervised are okay, he said. The buildings were each subject to a walkthrough inspection prior to letters being sent to owners. Terrace’s Fire Chief John Klie was in attendance, along with city building inspectors, electrical inspectors and senior city staff. “They need work,” said Klie after the walk through. “There are some fire hazards there and I guess the ques-
tion is: Could they be fixed?” Now, the city is awaiting a response from property owners. Block said options for owners include refurbishing and getting buildings back in to usable condition, demolishing the buildings, or maintaining and securing them as empty. “But the question I think on one or two (of the buildings) is: Is there even any point in them being maintained as an empty building?” said Block, noting it would also take a great deal of time and money to bring things up to code at a level that’s suitable for occupation. But the owner of 4450 Little Ave., George Vogel, has a different perspective about the buildings. “Every single one of them is heritage,” said Vogel. Vogel said he has put a substantial amount of money and time into renovating his building’s interior. It has a new roof, he said, renovations indoors are underway, and too much money has been invested at this point to think of tearing it down.
“Every day I wake up and work on something,” he said, adding he wants to talk more with the city before making a decision. Lloyd Wittkowski, owner of 4440 Little Ave., said he does not favour selling or tearing down his building. “I paid too much to have it torn down,” he said, adding he is waiting for money to become available to continue apartment complex plans he submitted to the city years ago for a permit that has since expired. He said he also has other property he is working on too. “I can only do so much,” he said. “I don’t have that deep of pockets. “What’s up with the city?” “How can they give you a permit to fix it up and then turn around and threaten you with demolition?” Co-owner of 4520 Little Ave., Wayne Kirby, said he plans to tear the building down on his property. “Part of it’s coming down and I’m going to try and sell the property,” he said. “The building itself, there’s not much left of the old buildings.”

Sixty-six of the departments Page has requested documents from have refused to cooperate with the PBO.

they don’t really want us to know what is actually going to happen to the money after all this budget mess. They don’t want us to know the facts. That way it is easier for them to continue presenting their own made up version of the facts that will support their decisions. Independent analysis provides you with the facts. Facts are what you need to make decisions; fact-based decisions. If what you really want to be able to do is make decision-based facts, you need to prevent independent analysis.

Diver still missing after search AT THE end of last week, there was still no sign of a man who went missing in the Skeena River after diving in earlier this month. Terrace Search and Rescue and Terrace Water Rescue spent nearly three days combing the river for the body of Alvin Clayton, whose friends called police at about 7:42 p.m. Aug. 5, said search and rescue member Dwayne Sheppard. Swiftwater technicians from the water rescue team used poles to probe the area and used both the Hummingbird boat sonar and their Kongsburg drop sonar to search the 30-foot-deep pool, said Sheppard. A crew also searched the surface of the water downstream, he added. Water rescue crews worked into the dark but were unsuccessful, he said. They renewed their efforts at 6 a.m. Aug. 6 to search the places where the missing man could be. Keeping the swiftwater crews in dry suits hydrated was a safety
concern during the day as temperatures rose to 29 degrees Celsius, said Sheppard. Team members cooled off by rotating shifts in the water to conduct in-water search operations. The main area where Alvin Clayton entered the water was extensively searched with different underwater cameras, sonars and with probe poles, said Sheppard. During the in-water operations, swiftwater rescue technicians searched debris strainers, backeddys and other catchment areas downstream of the point where Clayton went into the water. Police noted that while water levels had dropped in recent weeks, the Skeena River was still running very fast with strong undertows. First Nations crews joined in the search and looked further downstream but hadn’t found anything by the end of last week. Although the official search was concluded,

Thief beats, robs older man in his home TERRACE RCMP are looking for the person responsible for beating and robbing a 72-yearold man. At about 5 p.m. Aug. 6, a short white male in his early 30s entered a home on Larch Avenue in Thornhill, beat the man, stole his wallet and cell phone and fled in a green SUV or station wagon, said Terrace RCMP. This was the second robbery in Thornhill in as many days, said police. On Aug. 5 around 1:15, a native male, brandishing a knife, entered a property on Mark Ave. and stole the owner’s bicycle, reported police. A 17-year-old male was located, arrested and will appear in court on Oct. 16, said police. And Terrace RCMP and the police dog found a man on Shames Mountain. The 20-year-old Prince Rupert man was safe in hospital after being rescued Aug. 8. At about noon that day, someone reported seeing a male, who appeared to be confused, walking along Shames Mountain Road half dressed and without any shoes before disappearing into the forest, said police. The RCMP police dog unit and Terrace Ground Search and Rescue began searching and a helicopter was sent out to the area, said police. Shortly before 4 p.m., police dog Toma and his handler Cpl. Rob Budvarson found the man, who has a history of mental illness, and he was taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries, said police. It was believed that he had spent at least one
night on the mountain, said police. Local police had plenty to do on the first four days of Riverboat Days as the detachment received more calls than at last year’s event. Terrace RCMP In-
spector Dana Hart reported that his officers dealt with 233 files, a 28 per cent increase compared to last year. “Friday and Saturday (Aug. 3 and 4) we added extra officers, including the Crime Reduction
Unit and auxiliary constables on mountain bikes,” said Hart. “This enabled us to do a lot of proactive enforcement.” Forty-nine people were arrested for public intoxication, including a 14-year-old female
lision on Hwy 16 near Ferry Island, then on Sunday a 17-year-old was arrested for robbery in Thornhill, he said. Later that evening, police and search and rescue began looking for a missing man who
was last seen diving into the Skeena River, said Hart. Police also responded to more than 40 complaints of disturbance or mischief, including pit parties in Thornhill and Terrace, said Hart.

Northwest jobless rate highest in B.C. NORTHWEST BC has the highest unemployment rate in the province, according to stats released on August 10 by the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, and it is the only region in BC in double digits. The unemployment rate for the North Coast and Nechako region, which covers just west of Vanderhoof to Haida Gwaii, was 11.9 per cent this July. That number was down slightly from the 12.2 per cent in June but is the third highest rate this year.
When compared to last July's 7.7 per cent unemployment figure, the number is up 4.2 per cent. For the first six months of 2012 the average unemployment rate in the region was 11.9 per cent compared to 8.2 per cent for the first six months of 2011. In terms of the number of people employed, that figure has fallen from 44,300 last July to 38,400, a loss of 5,900 employed people in the northwest, while 500 jobs were lost from June to July. So far this year the number of people em-
ployed in the region is down 7.9 per cent while provincially the figure has risen 1.9 per cent. “We will have our team take a much closer look at the North Coast and Nechako region to see where this is occurring and how we can address it...We know that the loss of jobs is not actually the case with what is happening in Kitimat and with the port activity in Prince Rupert. I was in Terrace recently and didn't see this as the case,” said minister Pat Bell, noting that the size of the region makes it difficult
to pinpoint where the job loss and high unemployment is occurring. “It is a cause for concern, particularly given the level of economic activity that is taking place in the region.” The next highest unemployment rate is in the Cariboo, which has an unemployment rate of 8.1 per cent, followed by the Kootenay region at 6.8 per cent. The lowest unemployment rate in the province was in the northeast, with an unemployment rate of 4.3 per cent,. The provincial number is at 6.9
Dog owner urges board to approve his canine’s move Commenting on the size of Cain’s current kennel, Daly said that Cain’s kennel is an inside and outside kennel and Cain does go outside into “a small containment area.” “It’s a vicious dog in there (shelter) for obvious reasons,” he said, adding that for safety reasons, staff wasn’t going to take it out, let it run loose or take it for a walk. There were witness reports and the police report as to what happened and the dog fell under the criteria of the regional district bylaws and Community Charter to hold him. An assessment on the dog has been done but since the case is before the courts, Daly couldn’t go into detail. The owner hasn’t been denied visitation and has been instructed about the steps he needs to take to see the dog, said Daly. “We don’t want him [just] showing up at the shelter,” said Daly, adding it’s a legal matter so certain protocols are in place. Kelly Ruff, owner of Diamonds in the Ruff Canine Training, said she assessed Cain and videotaped it. She said Daly and Stacey Kennedy, animal control officer of the Thornhill Animal Shelter watched the assessment; she offered them a copy of her videotape but they declined it. While not going into specifics of what she learned from the assessment, she said MacNeil indicated he would agree to her findings. “He told me if I went into an assessment and I felt the dog was aggressive, he would put the dog down,” said Ruff. The behaviour dogs show when they’re in kennels for a long time depends on the individual animal, she said. “Generally, you see increased barking. You can see increased aggression,” she said, adding dogs protect the area they’re in and the smaller the area the more fiercely they protect it. Some dogs will become depressed, and can have health issues with weight gain if they don’t get exercise, she said.
some point because that dog can’t stand being there any longer, she added. “You know how you react to any amount of time at a kennel so think of the dog in there,” she said about the constant barking and how it can be bothersome. She added that every pound or shelter isn’t the same; some are set up for long term care and others aren’t. After his presentation to the regional district board, MacNeil walked outside with his arms in the air as in victory. He told his supporters he felt “really good” about how it went.
ALL IN-STORE MERCHANDISE
TUNDRA, LEFT, shows his support for Cain’s transfer to the Kitimat animal shelter where it’s believed the German shepherd will have better care until his trial date. A rally was held in support on Aug. 10.
If a dog in a kennel gets a significant amount of exercise it can use up its excess energy, which otherwise can turn into problems if not used it up. And it’s not only about exercising the body, it’s also about exercising the dog’s mind, she said. For example, herding dogs like Cain are thinking dogs and they have to have interaction and things to think about, she said. “Dogs are pack animals. When you have one basically in solitary confinement, it’s not part of their genetic makeup,” she said. A lot of times, shelter staff have to euthanize an animal at
per cent, which is down from last July's 7.3 per cent figure.

Those considering themselves part of the workforce are people with a job or who are looking for work.

QUAD DRIVERS are being reminded that they shouldn’t drink and drive. The West Pacific Region Traffic Services, also known as the highway patrol, showed one quad operator the consequences of driving while impaired after he was caught in Thornhill Aug. 7, reported police Aug. 8. Officers patrolling on Old Lakelse Lake Road attempted to stop the quad, which was on the highway, said police. The quad fled into a nearby gravel pit and overturned, at which time the 38-year-old Thornhill driver, who was not injured, was issued a 90 day driving suspension for alcohol, fined nearly $1,000 and had his quad impounded for 30 days, said police. Numerous complaints of quads driving on roadways in the Thornhill area have been reported to Terrace RCMP and it’s hoped

Wildﬁre ignites near Terrace By SAMANTHA GARVEY A WILDFIRE east of Terrace flared up last week, drawing firefighting efforts to extinguish the blaze. As of Aug. 11, firefighters worked on a wildfire that grew in size to about one hectare and burned close to the 10-kilometre mark along Copper River Road, reported the Northwest Fire Centre Aug. 10.
At first, crews could not reach the lightningcaused fire. “The issue with this fire is that it’s burning in steep, inaccessible terrain,” said Lindsay Carnes, information officer at the Northwest Fire Centre, of the fire before it grew. The fire’s proximity to the city, approximately 12 kilometres, would usually have called for a full response, but all crews could do at first was monitor it.
“Where it is now, it would not be safe for our crews,” said Carnes of the fire initially, adding that fires typically grow uphill. “If it makes its way up to a flatter area, then we would put our crews in there so that the fire wouldn’t extend,” she said. At the time, the fire was approximately one kilometre away from the hill’s plateau. Discovered Aug. 9, the fire was spot sized, 0.009 hectares or about
the size of a dining room table, and smoke could be seen from the Copper River Road. But by evening Aug. 10, crews moved in after the fire spread closer to the road, and grew to approximately one hectare in size. Eighteen fires started in total last week, all caused by lightning, but the majority were small, less than one hectare in size. The largest, 7.5 hectares, was being fought by firefighters
near Good Hope Lake, about 150 km north of Dease Lake. The Northwest Fire Centre officials have said with the recent lightning they expect more fires are burning that haven’t yet been located. The centre would like to remind the public that reporting fires or smoke is key to stopping wildfires before they grow out of control.

THE THIRD annual Terrace Kidney Walk is on this Sunday and for organizer Joan Iamele the event is an opportunity to raise awareness for people with kidney disease and promote the need for citizens to be registered as organ donors. In British Columbia, “85 per cent of people are in favour of being donor registered, but only 18 per cent actually are,” said Iamele. “My reason for being involved is awareness. It’s big in the walk to have everyone register at B.C. transplant.” Iamele herself has been touched by kidney disease, with both of her children being on dialyses and having gone through kidney transplants. “It may affect you,” said Iamele. “It’s a silent thing.” Kidney transplants are a more effective treatment than dialysis, said Iamele, because they give the recipient a clean kidney to work with, rather than one that needs to be cleaned out every two-to-three days. But the average wait time for a kidney is seven years. Currently, there are 375 people in B.C. on the waiting list.

Derby girls up their skills FORMER TERRACE resident and member of the National Roller Derby team Brie “Bone Machine” Birdsell was back in town last week hosting a training camp for local roller derby team the Northcoast Nightmares. On Tuesday and Wednesday, at the Hawkair hanger and Sportsplex arena, respectively, around 15 players rolled out to learn how to up their game from Birdsell, who has been playing for six years in Montreal. “I went from not being able to stay up on my skates to playing for Team Canada in that time,” she said, noting she didn’t play while she lived in Terrace. She credits her experiences with her Montreal team the New Skids on the Block, ranked third in the Eastern Region, as well as the Montreal Roller Derby league’s athletic training regime with sharpening her skills. Roller derby bouts see teams of five-onfive skate the oval track. Points are won by each team’s jammer, whose job is to break away from the group, making laps on the rest of the pack. The sport has seen a major surge over the past few years, attracting a large spectator following in part because of the players’ colourful personalities and hard-hitting match-ups. The Nightmares were happy to have Birdsell here. “The boot camp itself was an amazing experience,” said Nightmares’ player Tanya “Lady IzaHella” Laton. “I don’t think we have ever pushed ourselves that hard before.” “I know that everyone came out of it a stronger more confident player,” she said, noting that there were attendees from other teams, some as far away as Nova Scotia at the camp. “The Terrace girls were great to train,” said Birdsell, noting they improved greatly over the two days, “They were quick learners, very open to feedback and hungry for more knowledge in their sport. I really enjoyed being able to share my knowledge with the derby players of my hometown.” Terrace’s roller derby players are keen and ready to get game play happening in Terrace, but more infrastructure – refs, officials, coaches – is needed to make that

BRIE “BONE Machine” Birdsell shows off a defensive move while training the Northcoast Nightmares at the Sportsplex arena on Aug. 9. happen. “That’s the biggest challenge of bringing a new sport to a community,” she said. But, “with all of the hockey and community sports that are present in Terrace, once they have more of a structure in place, roller derby could really take off.” Terrace’s derby team is on the hunt for volunteers and new recruits. They have 10
benchmarked players ready to roll and are working hard to increase that number. “If anyone in town is interested in coaching a new sport, I would highly recommend working with the Northcoast Nightmares,” said Birdsell. “They are a team of dedicated women willing to train hard to be competitive in roller derby, and have fun doing it.”
Hot August Nites drag racing event sizzles

RUSS DUTNECHT, nearside, launches against Bruce Daum in the Super Pro finals on Monday to take home the win.
HOT AUGUST Nites, indeed. With temperatures climbing past 30 degrees for the event, held August 5 and 6 during Riverboat Days, the race certainly lived up to its name. Sunday kicked off with the continuation of Points brackets racing where Delany Ribeiro extended her reign as the Jr.’s Champion, holding on to the top spot from the previous event and giving her a solid lead in the points race. She battled with Quinn Amado, who took second place in an exciting all girls battle. In the Sportsman Class, that runs 8.60 seconds and up, Tom Ponzini took first while Steve Derby, a first time racer at the Terrace Drag Racing Association (TDRA) took second. For Pro, which runs anywhere from 7.36 – 8.59 seconds on the one-eighth mile track, Ken Kaperlari, racing out of Telkwa in his ‘56 Chevy Belair took first place. Kris Barnett, once again proving his strength and fierceness as a competitor, took first in the Super Pro class. But that wasn’t his only win – he took the weekend as an opportunity to propose to his girlfriend, Desiree Faber, who accepted his proposal. Monday’s races included MacCarthy
Motor’s Quick 8, in which the eight fastest machines on the property go head-to-head in an all-out heads up race for cash followed by the King of the YXT, where Terrace racers are pitted against each other to see who is the most consistent racer of the day. Chris Bie took the top spot and Delany Ribeiro made it a double win by taking first in the Jr. King (or in her case, Queen) of the YXT.

LOCAL ARTISTS and art-lovers have a new space to come together. Susann Williamson is running Mountainside Gallery and Framing, which had its grand opening Aug. 11 and 12 at its location at Skeena Landing. But its doors were able to open because of greater community support of the Terrace arts scene. “The big difference is there are not only artists supporting artists but community members as well,” said Williamson. “Everyone’s been involved. “The arts scene is growing bigger and bigger.” All the artwork at the gallery is local and original work, with some consignment and estate art. Everything has a story, a history
and the opportunity to form a relationship with the artist, Williamson said. The walls are covered with pieces from local art legends like ‘Big Bob’ Park, Edward Epp, Al and Nan Richardson, Freda Diesing and Marion Schlegel. Her plans to continue promoting arts in Terrace include workshops to take place at the gallery; a juried art show, where locals can gain feedback on their work from established professionals; meet the artist events; and bringing in an art appraiser. One thing she is not worried about is demand. “There’s been a shift in the last 10 years. People don’t want junk. (They) are looking closer to home for authentic, quality, local art,” she said.
