Unanswered questions surround refinery Cameron Orr Haisla Chief Councillor Ellis Ross isn’t quite ready to express an opinion on whether David Black’s proposal for an oil refinery is a good idea — the Haisla council has a policy of waiting for official government referrals on proposals before forming opinions — but he does say the newspaper mogul has a “long way to go.” Ross said putting a concept on paper is one thing but actually implementing such a proposal will take years and years of work. And he noted that Black’s announcement didn’t really say a lot beyond the fact he would apply for an environmental permit. “That happens more often than most people know about,” said Ross, adding that permit applications are “a dime a dozen.” Black told media in his announcement on Aug. 17 that he hasn’t yet had “serious” discussions with First Nations governments. Ross said that he’s had no actual face-to-face meeting with him and communication has only been through the phone. Ross said there are many unanswered questions around this proposal, from the opinion of other First Nations, to whether a permit for a refinery could be blended with Enbridge’s own application. But speaking as a British Columbian, Ross said that it really comes down to a need for a national strategy. “What it boils down to is just that we don’t have an energy plan for Canada,” he said. And aside from the debate on the refinery itself, Ross did praise Black for at least making this a topic of conversation. “Regardless of cost, regardless of obstacles, regardless of the positive and negative comments, he actually was the one that made it in official in saying ‘we should be talking about this.’,” he said. “I hope it’s a wake up call to British Columbia and Canada...I do commend him for actually having the courage to bring it up.” As reported last week, Black Press owner David Black announced his plans to submit an application for an environmental permit for a proposed oil refinery to be located between Kitimat and Terrace. The plan calls for the processing of all the output of the proposed Northern Gateway Pipelines project by Enbridge - about 550,000 barrels a day.

1.34 INCLUDES TAX

A group of about a dozen youth listen intently as they’re read a book, one of the wrap-up events at the library last week capping off the summer reading club.

BC LNG Co-op aims for 2014 start BC LNG Export Co-operative, the partnership between the Haisla and LNG Partners LLC, will be sending out bids for its production and output possibly as early as this week, while they look for a final go-ahead before Christmas this year. That’s the word from Tom Tatham, managing director for BC LNG. Earlier this year BC LNG received a 20 year export licence for liquefied natural gas from the National Energy Board. The Sentinel contacted BC LNG after it received word that new changes to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act on July 6 would mean certain projects in the country would no longer require an environmental assessment. Douglas Channel Gas Services, one of the arms of the co-op, was among those affected. Tatham said that this change of policy won’t necessarily speed up development of the LNG facility as they were

We’ve told them either you do that or we’re likely to supply our own power.” on track with their schedule already, and said that there’s no cause for concern that they won’t get an assessment because the construcion and operation is fairly smallscale anyway, especially compared to the larger proposals in line for this area. “Our process was never as involved as the bigger projects,” said Tatham. He did say they would still work with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans regarding potential impacts on the marine environments. Meanwhile the company is moving ahead in issuing requests for nominations this week, which will allow companies to bid on supplying the gas and purchasing it for the project’s Train 1. The facility is

looking to an initial 700,000 tonnes per year output. As long as everything falls into place as it’s expected he said that construction should start before the end of this year with an operation date sometime at the end of 2014. Engineering-wise, BC LNG has some slight alterations to make to its Front End Engineering and Design plan (FEED), to reflect possible changes to its power supply. Tatham said they are considering selfgeneration all their electricty after BC Hydro announced changes to its power rates. Tatham said BC Hydro introduced new rates which meant they wouldn’t receive the usual industrial rate for power. “We’ve told them either you do that or we’re likely to supply our own power,” he said. He said they’ll decide on their power structure once they firm up their financing.”

Police seeking a suspect after knife pulled A Caucasian male in his 20s is being sought by the RCMP in connection with a report that a man pulled a knife on a Kitimat woman who was walking in the Whitesail area of town. Police say that the woman was not harmed and was able to

get away. The man himself left the area on foot after a porch light went on, scaring him off. He is described as 5’9� tall, with blonde hair, blue eyes and was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans.

July crime stats are in POLICE BEAT

Kitimat council received the July crime report from the local detachment at their last meeting. There was a single sexual assault in the month, as well as nine common assaults, one criminal harrassment, four threats against a person and 11 animal calls, four being for bears. One case was opened regarding cocain trafficking, and two for possession of marijuana. No businesses were broken into but two homes were. Two vehicles were reported sto-

len, and there were 25 calls for causing a disturbance. Twenty-three driving tickets were issued as well as 35 warnings. In the comparison from this year to last, there have been 10 sexual assaults this year compared to seven last year. Assaults with weapons and assaults causing bodily harm are still below 2011’s 13 at 11 to-date. There has only been one business break-in this year compared to 20 in all of last year. And this year 14 homes have been broken into so far, compared to 22 in 2011.

Cameron Orr Handicap access to riverside fishing has been improved this year thanks to a collaboration between the District of Kitimat and Kitimat Iron, who together have rejuvenated the fishing spot just off from the Kitimat Hatchery. Those who made it happen gathered at the fishing spot last Thursday to officially open it to the public, although it has been in use since June, just as the fish started coming into the river. Recognition was freely given to Stewart Bors, a project manager with Kitimat Iron, along with his son Justin and fellow Kitimat Iron worker Roland Sarabun, all of whom pitched in their services to give the fishing spot a brand new handrail and covered shelter, with a concrete walkway. Stewart said he was contacted by Kitimat Leisure Services’ Director Martin Gould to fix up the handrail which had been worn down by age. “When I came down here and looked at the handrail it just looked kind of lonely there,” he said. From that he put together a proposal to do the extra work and handed it in to the District last year, but missed the budget cycle. This year they were ready and the District pitched in $3,500 for material with Kitimat Iron matching the rest with donated labour and other material. Roland was in charge of laying the concrete and Justin did carpentry work around the site. “There were guys using [the spot] already before we had the building up,” said Stewart. Rene Jenster, chairman of the town’s Disabled Commission, said that the value for this site is quite high and praised the work that went into it.

This summer could be a scorcher. “It’s very well done and I think it’s going to be well used,” he said. Linda Campbell, who chairs the Leisure Services Advisory Commission, said that the work done there has opened up the river. “People in their chairs can actually come down here and if they’re not going to fish they can actually watch others across the river fishing,” she said. “It’s something that needed to be done and I’m very thankful that these guys took up the challenge and did it.” Mayor Joanne Monaghan said she is very proud of the work

that went into rejuvenating the spot. “It’s wonderful when citizens of a community come together,” she said, adding that she is frequently told how unique a spot like that is from out-oftown visitors. She added that the spot itself was established in the early 90s, a vision of former town councillor Graham Anderson Roland Sarabun managed to sum up the project with just a few simple words. “It was a great project, it serves a good cause, and lets hope there’s more of them.”

A re-look I came back to work briefly on Aug. 17, before my official day back on Aug. 22, because the word was the highest higher up in the company, David Black, had a press announcement to make. I was entirely surprised to see he’s come out with a proposal to refine oil from the proposed Northern Gateway Pipelines right here in B.C., in the Kitimat Valley even. It’s an idea I’ve often wondered about. Would a refinery be a better choice? Granted I didn’t give the proposal as much thought as Black clearly has, but this announcement raises interesting questions about what’s possible, and what would be supported. My first reaction from the announcement was to see what the latest opinion polls were on the proposed pipelines project and found an Angus Reid poll that said that while most people opposed the pipeline, there was a slim majority who replied that their opinion on the pipeline could be swayed. That brought past conversations I’ve had with people back to mind, when I’ve been told by a few that if we could get value here then it might be a different story. Just as people mostly dislike the export of raw logs from B.C., if we could make fuel rather than ship the raw bitumen to Asia, it could sway the perception of the cost and risks of the project. With such a clearly defined benefit - thousands of jobs, for instance - those from the Angus Reid poll may find something to like about the Northern Gateway project after all if all leads to a refinery. The proposal for a refinery is ambitious and without any financial backers to get it built so far it’s hard to see where the project will go from here. And no one else is banging down doors to get a refinery built in North America, which may make you wonder. At the very least it’s a chance to pause and consider our positions on the pipeline; are we more concerned for environmental risk or are we more concerned about what we’ll get out of it in the end? I have a hunch we would be surprised with the answers. With that said, consider this an invitation to all our readers to write in with their opinion on the proposed refinery. Whether you think it’s good news or bad news, we would love to hear and publish your opinions. Letters can be dropped off at our office or e-mailed to newsroom@northernsentinel.com. Cameron Orr

The man who was kicked made his first court appearance on a charge of robbery the following day, and a couple of days later we learn that a six man squad of Abbotsford police officers is being assembled to investigate and review the case of the kicking officer. How long will it take? Well, the police are very busy, you know... These but two of dozens of complaints which are directed at police officers in the course of their duty. It’s an everyday hazard – so it seems to me there should be more semblance of “justice needs to be seen to be done” in many more of these cases, instead of always the demonstration of the old saw, “the wheels of justice grind slowly.” Yes, grind slowly for some. I am not suggesting that police officer wrongdoings be dealt with differently than other crimes, because, these are indeed forms of crime. These two, however, are relatively simple and in fact neither caused specific injury. The first however resulted in a human rights claim and a claim for damages. The brakes go on. I believe if there was a process in place to deal with such incidents promptly and firmly, it would serve to demonstrate to the public the primary purpose of the police is (as advertised) to “serve and protect.” Continued on page 5

Losing control of liquor branch lacks sense Dear Sir, B.C. citizens are about to lose an asset that generates nearly a billion dollars every year that helps pay for public services like health care and education. The Liquor Distribution Branch is an effective and profitable system that Christy Clark’s Liberal government is selling to a private company for a one time cash infusion before the May 2013 election. The Liberal government made this decision without a business case and without public consultation. Stop the sale of our public liquor distribution by telling your MLA that you oppose this loss of significant funding. See DontDropPublicLiquor.ca for more information. Andrew Da Costa

Refinery not an opportunity to waste Dear Sir, Media mogul David Black has my full support for his proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery near Kitimat to process heavy oil from the Enbridge pipeline. I’ve had the same idea myself. Why should we let the Asian countries buy our Canadian crude oil and refine it for their markets when we could add value by refining it here in BC and shipping them the finished product? This is a strategy that would create local jobs for our own citizens and address the environmental concerns around oil tankers travelling in BC’s coastal waters. I know for a fact that Alberta wants to do this because I worked on a project in East Edmonton (a stone’s throw from the refineries in Fort Saskatchewan) that would have

seen it become a reality. And as long as Enbridge meets the conditions and standards set out by the Premier, moving heavy oil from Alberta through a pipeline would be a heck of a lot better than shipping it by rail or truck. That’s why BC should be working with Alberta on exactly the kind of joint interprovincial venture David Black is proposing, a venture that would bring value-added tertiary oil refining to BC along with the heavy oil pipeline. Shipping gasoline, jet fuel and other refined oil products by tanker is just as practical as shipping crude oil and lot safer from an environmental standpoint. So let’s not waste this opportunity and the revenue and jobs it could bring to our province. There’s a lot we could do here in B.C. with a piece of the oil industry pie. Roop Virk

masks mandatory for health workers Tom Fletcher B.C. health care workers will be required to get an annual influenza vaccine or wear a mask in all patient contact areas in the community or publicly funded facilities, starting with this year’s flu season. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall announced the regulation Thursday, a first for Canada. It applies to health authority staff, doctors, volunteers, students, contractors and vendors who come into contact with patients. Free flu shots have been made available to B.C. health care workers for years, and despite encouragement, fewer than half take advantage of them. The average vaccination rate for long-term care employees is closer to 60 per cent, but Kendall said that rate is still too low and has declined in recent years. Canada’s national advisory committee on immunization considers it a “professional responsibility” for health care workers to get their flu shot every year, Kendall said. The mask option is being offered for workers who have a medical reason not to be vaccinated, and to avoid disputes with employees who simply refuse. “Progressive discipline” would be imposed on employees who refuse both during flu season, just as it would be for those who fail to wash their hands or take precautions when coughing, Kendall said. B.C. is the first province to move to mandatory influenza protection, following the lead of U.S. jurisdictions where vaccination has increased to more than 95 per cent. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control estimates that complete vaccination of health care workers would reduce the risk risk for patients by 47 per cent, as well as protecting the workers from exposure from infected patients. The annual influenza shot is made available around Thanksgiving each year, to prepare for a season that typically runs from late November until March. A new formulation is used each year to match the strains most likely to be circulating in North America during the winter.

Sewage lift gets boost

Industrial values lead way for 2012

$100,000 more approved for repairs Cameron Orr Council has voted to go ahead with a budget boost of $100,000 to repair the Yukon Sewage Lift Station. District of Kitimat administration released a report to council saying that due to the station’s age, as well as undefined operational concerns, work needed to be done, and with construction inflation expected to continue to increase over time they felt it was time to do the work right away. The additional money, administration proposed, should come from the town’s Gas Tax Fund. The initial budget of $300,000 was approved during council’s budget deliberations but the tenders received for the proposal since then have indicated that the work will be much more expensive than the consultants estimated. It is theorized that the difference comes down to the different cost of construction between this area and the Lower Mainland, as well as significant inflation costs to works in Kitimat because of all the construction activity, administration’s report said. Council approved the $100,000 jump to the budget. Mary Murphy and Corinne Scott voted against the plan.

Kitimat Council has asked for a report to come back from administration about costs association with a program offered through BC Hydro. The utility budgets $1 million each year for the program to go towards beautification projects that would essentially move power lines underground. Councillors wanted to know how much the town would have to front to do such work at the viewpoint. The program would pay for one-third the cost of the work.

So far this year building permits issued by the District of Kitimat exactly equal that of the entirety of 2011. The building department’s report shows 80 permits for building and plumbing were issued this year, the same as for 2011. Meanwhile demolition permits are far down, at only four this year, compared to 72 last year. Construction values meanwhile are far up for the year, although for July specifically are slightly down versus the same month last year. In total construction values are just over $7 million in July. Last year it was just short of $11 million. But considering the year as a whole, 2012 is already at $330,405,175 for construction values, versus 2011’s $32,872,485. The big gain is, expectedly, from industry. Industrial construction values for the year sit at $329,134,000, while in 2011 they were just $29,050,600. Residential values have a way to go before being caught up. So far this year they are at $676,400, compared to $2,249,885 for 2011. Commercial values are at $534,775 for the year versus $842,000 last year. Institutional construction values are $60,000 so far, compared to $730,000 last year.

Two Temporary Industrial Use Permits (TINUPS) were issued by council on Aug. 20. One was for J. Oviatt Contracting who sought a renewal for a gravel pit and quarry. The initial TINUP was issued to the company June 2010 and at the time public notices stated that it would be up for renewal this year, meaning notice did not have to be posted this time around. Another TINUP was approved for John Pozsgay, who wanted a renewal for sand and gravel removal from his borrow pit. As with the other TINUP, notice was not required as the 2010 notice indicated it would be up for renewal in 2012.

Job seekers connect with employers at first-time career fair Cameron Orr Kitimat Valley Institute’s job and career fair last Thursday connected regional job seekers with potential employers. It was the first time that KVI had held such an event which included local and regional businesses. “We’ve offered this to the community and the region for two purposes,” said Kelley Williams, president and CEO of KVI. “One of course is to support the citizens of the region that may be unemployed or underemployed or maybe wishing to change jobs. The other reason we’ve hosted this event with our partners is to help the many employers that are new to our area that have made a committment to local hiring, to give them the opportunity to meet the local people.” The fair was made in partnership with STEP - the Skilled Trade to Employment Program, and Job Match. “Today there’s a lovely selection of newer companies to town or people who may eventually do business in town,” she said. Careers being represented at the fair included mining and blasting, construction and scaffolding. “We’ve noticed a real increase in the areas of construction safety training, oil and gas safety training, traffic control persons, security...[for] some of them probably the enrolment is 100 times

“Soft skills is something people are not understanding how important it will be.” higher than this time last year.” Despite the major focus on construction-related jobs, Williams does point out that we shouldn’t forget the “soft skills” “At this time I’d say we see a huge focus on construction but we have to remember all the supporting stuff around construction,” she said, which includes business administration and computer training. “Soft skills is something people are not understanding how important it will be.” Developing these office-based skills will mean achieving the full capacity for the region, she said, as these are the jobs that will sustain beyond the construction phase.

Above, employers explain their businesses to job seekers at Kitimat Valley Institute. Below, friends stand together as they look for new opportunities. From left to right is Miranda Ross, Gage Ladouceur, Brett Amos and Kyle Grant.

No more than one road to salvation From the Pulpit Redeemer Lutheran Church

Pastor Clint Magnus John 6:68, “Peter answered (Jesus) Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” This verse comes from the sixth chapter of John right after Jesus had told a crowd of followers that He was the Savior sent from Heaven for their eternal salvation. Upon hearing it most of the crowd walked away. Jesus then turned to His 12 disciples and asked, “Do you want to go too?” To which Peter answered, “Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” It has never been a popular teaching to proclaim that Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Today the popular thinking is that there are many roads to God. “You take yours and I’ll take mine and we’ll all end up in the same place.” Unfortunately, that’s not what the Bible says. It says that God has only one plan of salvation. There isn’t a plan “B” or “C;” it says that there is only one name given under heaven by which we might be saved and that is the name of God’s Son Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us that we are born in sin and

separated from God. God’s remedy to this was to send His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to live a sinless life (because we can’t) and then give that perfect life on the cross as our substitute, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but receive eternal life. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” And so we have to do something with a claim like that. Either Jesus is the only way or He isn’t. But it would be wise for those who think they can do better than Christ to ask themselves, “To whom would I go, and will I find forgiveness and eternal salvation there?” Do the philosophers of this world offer you eternal salvation? Do the perishable goods of this earth comfort your eternal soul? I’m not going to tell you today that we can account for every mystery in the Bible or that Christians agree on every point of doctrine; we don’t. But what I can say is this: there is one crystal clear teaching in Scripture that cannot be disputed and it is this: Jesus Christ, the Son of God died for your sins; He rose from the grave for your eternal salvation and He is the only way by which you can be saved. And so when you are confronted with roads that do not lead to Christ, I pray that God will give you the faith to say with Peter, “Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God” Amen.

The crushed gravel has been put in and the pouring of new pavement is expected late this week on Industrial Avenue. Engineering Services with the District of Kitimat say they expect Industrial, as well as Meldrum Street in the Whitesail area, to be back to working order by the first week of September.

Northern Sentinel, Wednesday, August 29, 2012 13

What will you be doing on September 3? Going Camping? Watching football? Sleeping in? Whatever your plans, be sure to take a moment to reflect on the history behind this wonderful day of late summer freedom. If you’re not familiar with the story, you may be surprised to learn that Canada is responsible for this much anticipated long weekend. That’s right; Labour Day may be celebrated around the globe today, but it’s origins are distinctly Canadian. On April 15, 1872, the Toronto Trades Assembly organized a pioneering worker's rights demonstration. The demonstration's goal was to bring about the release of 24 leaders of the Toronto Typographical Union who had been imprisoned for striking in support of a nine-hour working day. In 1872, trade unions and labour strikes were against the law in Canada; despite that, the Toronto Trade Assembly continued with their important work and under their encouragement trade unions continued, signaling the end to accepted worker mistreatment, and the dawning of workers rights. That first Labour Day parade in Toronto sent a clear message regarding the importance of trade unions in Canada. Public support was huge, and within a few months a similar parade was held in Ottawa. The Ottawa parade route passed a significant residence - that of Canadian Prime Minister Sir John A. MacDonald. Within hours, Prime Minister MacDonald spoke before the gathering and made a promise to the assembled workers to abolish laws against labour unions in Canada. Enjoy your well-deserved Labour Day holiday, and remember those early activists who risked so much for the rights we enjoy today!

Bogdan Ilyushchenko shows a gymnast the ropes, so to speak. Bogdan is the Kitimat Dynamics Club’s new head coach.

Gymnasts get a dynamic new coach Bogdan Ilyushchenko has just vaulted into a new job with the Kitimat Dynamics Gymnastics Club as the new head coach. Ilyushchenko now adds Kitimat to an already impressive background including touring with the Cirque du Soleil show. Ilyushchenko takes over from outgoing coach Angela Pitzel. Ilyushchenko has toured the globe extensively. As part of the high bar act with Cirque du Soleil’s show Alegria, he spent time in the United States, Canada, and Europe, as well as 14 months in Japan, which he said was the best time he had throughout his tours. But after three years his mind

began to wander to new opportunities, which lead him to take the job in Kitimat. He said he’s excited about the new job here, and is already enjoying the positive relationships he’s cultivating with the athletes. Having moved here from Montreal, he’s impressed by the quality of people in town and their friendly demeanours. He said people back in Montreal are very rushed. Looking ahead for Kitimat’s club, he wants to make a greater impact on professional gymnastics with Kitimat athletes, while maintaining the level of fun the kids have always enjoyed. “We will keep it fun,� he said.
