Airport grounds WestJet chase THE NORTHWEST Regional Airport is backing off from any effort to encourage WestJet to add Terrace to its destination list. The decision, reached by members of the non-profit society that run the facility, was made after airport officials made a sales pitch to the airline at its invitation in late spring. Although airport society president Ron Burnett said it’s apparent WestJet regards

Terrace as a prime candidate for its new regional airline scheduled to start service next year, it’s going to be content to let WestJet make a final decision on its own without any local encouragement. He would not comment directly on whether the board’s decision is tied to any worries that WestJet service might harm local carrier Hawkair. Hawkair and Air Canada Jazz Express now provide

Vancouver-Terrace service. “I think the business case has already been made and WestJet had already done their homework,” said Burnett. “They’ve obviously realized this is a growth area. If they are looking for one airport, the Northwest Regional Airport is the one.” Burnett said there is public interest in having WestJet set up shop in Terrace, adding many people now drive to Prince George for WestJet flights and having the carrier

here would bring more traffic to Terrace. But it is not the job of the airport society to pursue carriers, he said. The society’s first role is to ensure safety, second reliability, and third is market surveying and research, he said. Terrace is one of more than 30 locations being eyed by WestJet for a regional arm to start next year using new Dash 8-400 aircraft. They’re faster than the older Dash 8-type aircraft now

in use by Hawkair and Air Canada Jazz. Hawkair, which is owned by a Smithers-based company that also owns Central Mountain Airlines and Northern Thunderbird, has begun promoting its regional roots in its advertising using the phrase, “When I fly, I support the local economy.” Hawkair official Rod Hayward said the airline is used to dealing in a competitive atmosphere and that the airline industry is changing

continually. “In some ways, we would stand at a better advantage because our cost structure is probably lower than WestJet’s,” said Hayward. “A brand new Dash 8-400, they’re not cheap.” A WestJet arrival would not be the first time three airlines have flown the TerraceVancouver route. Pacific Coast Airlines pulled out in March 2008, after barely a year. It cited low ticket sales.

College cuts battle ends up in court

ANGRY OVER layoffs, the Academic Workers Union, which mostly represents instructors, has filed suit against Northwest Community College. The union alleges the college board failed to adequately consult the institution’s own education council in course content and program planning for the coming school year. “The action comes as a surprise to the Northwest Community College (NWCC), since consultations with both stakeholders and the board were conducted during the deficit mitigation process,” said Denise Henning, president and CEO, in a press release last week of efforts that began at the beginning of this year to cut a deficit that would have been in the neighbourhood of $2 million. “I know that we consulted both the educational council and all stakeholders throughout this difficult process, but apparently the academic workers feel we have not adhered to the act,” she added of legislation governing the college. The Academic Workers Union filed legal action nearly two weeks ago under Section 23 of the College and Institutes Act, a section which sets out the education council’s role in course content and delivery and planning. The president of a provincial association of post secondary unions which takes in the Academic Workers Union says she doesn’t understand Henning’s response. “For Mrs. Henning to say she doesn’t know where the court application is coming from, that she’s surprised by it, I find that very strange,” said Cindy Oliver, president

of the BC Federation of Post Secondary Educators. “The act does require that administrators must get input from their education counsel when they are contemplating program changes.” Oliver alleges that college administrators did not follow the correct steps. “There are going to be some programs that are not going to be offered anymore and these changes are going to have serious effects on students,” she said. “Administrators made those decisions without the proper consultations.” The college’s education council is responsible for overviewing academic and technical training. “They have a very serious role to play in the governance of the institution and they’re an important governing body,” said Oliver. In response, Henning said that no program or course changes have been made. “There were no courses cancelled, there were no programs that were cancelled,” she said. “Obviously there seems to be a miscommunication.” Henning added that the board did consult during course and program planning, and that a representative of the education council sits on the college board. “To say that the board did not consult, that is a very inaccurate comment,” she said. This latest action is separate from the one the union filed against the college with the provincial Labour Relations Board by the Academic Workers Union earlier this year.

Councillor ďŹ ghts a rare disease A VETERAN city councillor battling a rare disease was taken out of an induced coma late last week. Lynne Christiansen was flown to Vancouver to St. Paul’s Hospital for advanced medical care two weeks ago after being diagnosed with Wegener’s disease. There is currently no known cure for it. The disease is a rare autoimmune disorder characterized by inflamed blood vessels. It affects the body’s organs, is considered life threatening and is painful. Christiansen had been placed in a coma for a few days as one way of dealing with the disease. Last weekend, her mother Grace Warner said Christiansen has shown improvement in her condition and had visitors, including her sisters. “I appreciate everybody that’s been calling about Lynne, and

Lynne Christiansen many, many people say they’re praying for her,� she said. “She is totally out of the coma that was induced and she’s been able to get up and take in normal food so we’re so thankful for that and it looks like she’s made a substantial recovery but she still certainly is a sick lady.� Christiansen first went through several weeks of testing before being flown to Vancouver. “They’ve moved her into the kidney ward so

that they can monitor her kidneys. They seem to be working but they want to monitor them further,� said Clarence Warner, Christiansen’s dad. Christiansen has been an elected city official since December 1999 and is one of the more well-known members of city council. Acting mayor Marylin Davies said prayers are coming from the City of Terrace too. “As council, we are very anxious about her,� said Davies. Davies added that as Christiansen is considered seriously ill, right now what’s important for council is that she rest and focus on getting better. Christiansen has a long-standing history in Terrace, notably as the former president of the farmers market. As a council member, she has been a strong advocate for improving health care services.

TERRACE STANDARD

BUSINESS REVIEW Council leery of refinery plan TERRACE CITY council hasn’t shifted its stance on Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project despite a recent oil refinery announcement. The idea of a refinery, proposed Aug. 17 by Black Press owner David Black (The Terrace Standard is a Black Press newspaper) would be built 25 kilometres south of Terrace and is estimated to employ roughly 6000 workers in its construction phase. Black said he wants the refinery to take crude from Enbridge’s proposed pipeline, turning the heavy oil into refined products like gasoline prior to shipping it in tankers. But even if the refinery comes to fruition, gains exclusive rights to Alberta crude oil being transported by the pipeline, and makes tanker traffic safer because refined products are less risky to the ocean, most councillors say it doesn’t change their anti-pipeline stance. “We’re always in favour of investments,” said councillor Marylin Davies after the announcement. “[But] we really don’t have any details. We have a piein-the-sky idea.” Davies added that a refinery near here doesn’t change concerns about the pipeline proposed to feed it.

REFINERY AT Anacortes in Washington State.

“I have a real problem with running the bitumen,” she said, pointing to a recent forest fire near Copper River Road where firefighting crews couldn’t initially gain access. “What would happen if that was an oil spill?” she said. Councillor James Cordeiro agreed that a refinery doesn’t change the pipeline project. “The proposed refinery in some way might mitigate marine risk, however, the burden of

proof still remains on Enbridge as to the safety of the Northern Gateway pipeline proposal,” he said. “At this time I have yet to see anything from Enbridge that would alter my position.” Cordeiro said the refinery proposal is so hypothetical that considering it as viable in the Northern Gateway debate isn’t worth it yet. But councillor Brian Downie said he thinks of the proposal as an-

other piece of information in the process. “I was one that supported following a process (before forming a stance on the pipeline project),” he said. “The announcement of the pipeline is essentially putting out some other ideas about how a petro chemical industry could develop this area,” he said. Councillor Stacey Tyers said development needs to be weighed with risk.

“I get that we need jobs, but at what cost?” said Tyers. “It doesn’t change the bitumen travelling through our watershed which terrifies me.” Councillor Bruce Bidgood agreed. “I think that the whole discussion about building a refinery here does nothing to address the risks involved with pumping oil across the province of B.C.,” he said. “Is any amount of money or jobs worth

having an environmental disaster? “I think our position [as city council] has remained unchanged,” he said. “But I think we’re probably going to have some discussions about this on council just to reconfirm that our stance hasn’t changed.” City council’s opposition to the Northern Gateway pipeline came about in a two-part motion in a January council meeting. The motion asked

council to declare support for two Union of British Columbia Municipalities motions: “B140 Opposing the shipping of tar sand oil in pipelines across northern B.C. for loading onto crude oil tankers,” and “B139 Opposing any expansion of bulk crude oil tanker traffic in Dixon Entrance, Hecate Strait and Queen Charlotte Sound, B.C.” Councillor Lynne Christiansen is ill and could not comment. Mayor Dave Pernarowski, who is out of the country, responded via two emails, saying the city is “always open to new business and job creation opportunities. “Mr. Black is a highly respected and successful businessman in B.C. and, as the owner of one of our key media outlets, The Terrace Standard, he is a valued member of our growing business community. “At this time, we don’t know enough about the project to comment one way or another about it, but we look forward to working with Mr. Black in the future and engaging with our citizens regarding any major investments that could create jobs and help grow our amazing city,” the mayor said. Still, he concluded, council’s anti-pipeline stance hasn’t changed.

Gitxsan leader backs refinery idea A NORTHWEST First Nations leader said he plans to help the owner of Black Press find money to build an oil refinery. Gitxsan land claims negotiator Elmer Derrick said he applauded the Aug. 17 announcement made by media mogul David Black about plans to build a plant that would refine crude oil from Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project. That would

mean refined products like gas, diesel and kerosene would be exported on tankers instead of raw bitumen, reducing the threat to the coast. Derrick said the jobs that would come should the refinery be built and operate would make a significant dent in First Nations unemployment. “I think he made a bold move and it’s commendable,” said Derrick. “The whole thing about adding value to Canadian products

is very important for me because we can’t just continue to ship raw materials out for other people to add value to,” he said. The refinery plan calls for approximately 6,000 workers to be hired for the plant’s construction phase and about 3,000 permanent jobs afterward. “I always laugh at the statistics that Canada puts out about unemployment,” said Derrick, pointing to a

recent Statistics Canada unemployment report showing a rate of 11.9 per cent for July for the North Coast and Nechako region, which covers just west of Vanderhoof to Haida Gwaii. “When you go to the villages, most of them average about 75 per cent unemployment,” said Derrick. “Our noses don’t seem to count when it comes to Canada statistics, and that really pisses me off.”

He said the refinery could help with First Nations unemployment. “It will make a huge difference in the lives of young people in this community,” he said. “That’s why I spend so much time trying to bring development activity to this area.” Derrick said that other First Nations leaders have contacted him since the announcement, although he wouldn’t divulge the names of those leaders.

“I’ve talked to a number of aboriginal leaders and they’re quite interested ... different people from around the province who have phoned,” Derrick continued. But a good idea needs money to happen, and Black doesn’t have the capital to finance the entire project himself, he said. “There’ll be people, like me, that will be trying to find other investors to bring into the mix,” said Derrick.

View from the top Thornhill Mountain lookout was rebuilt by the forest service with help from the community By Samantha Garvey

A

community collaboration is responsible for the rebuild of a lookout at the top of Thornhill Mountain. A lookout has been perched on the peak since the 1920s. But in recent years, the building had fallen into disrepair. To celebrate its centenary, the forest service in Terrace undertook the project to rebuild the lookout. But it wasn’t alone. “(Projects) like this only happen when the community gives support,” said Carl Johansen of the local forestry service. And the community answered the call. The carpentry class of the Northwest Community College Trades Program completed the walls, roof and rafters as part of a class project. Quantum Helicopters flew the crews in and out of the site at a discounted rate and added a free day of flying. Labour was provided by B.C. Timber Sales, the Wildfire Management Branch and local contractor John Vandevelde. Terry Myhr from the McElhanney engineering firm in Terrace designed the structure, including cables that extend from each corner of the building. Further donations were provided by the rotary and Kinsmen Clubs of Terrace. The idea began with Johansen, and the timing fit with allocations of funds to restore old lookouts from the BC Forest Service head office. But the overall project required more than the initial seed money from Victoria.

“If it relied on our budget alone, it wouldn’t have happened,” said Johansen. To the top of Thornhill Mountain is a seven-kilometre hike, which would take an avid hiker nearly four hours to complete. The lookout was first built in the

1920s. The new one was built on the exact same spot. “We were able to salvage the foundation,” said Vandevelde, adding that workers did need to touch up some spots. The cables went up Aug. 16. Close to hurricane-force winds

blow over the top of the mountain so cables are necessary to keep the lookout right where it is. The trail gets very active use, especially from hikers in the summer and snowmobilers in the winter. Johansen said he expects the lookout too will be often used and may be a draw to attract more people up the mountain. Provincially, six fire lookouts are slated for restoration this year with four additional lookouts being assessed for potential future restoration. This initiative is being managed by the Recreation Sites and Trails Branch and is in conjunction with the centenary of the BC For-

The budget for the Thornhill project is estimated at approximately $45,000, of which $15,000 in seed money was provided by the sites and trails branch. The remainder was through in-kind contributions, pro-bono work, volunteers, service clubs and individual donations, Northwest Community College support and more.

EDITORIAL Jobless rate THE REVIEW by provincial officials into the northwest’s high jobless rate cannot be finished too soon. It follows another month of double digit jobless figures, a situation which is, says provincial jobs minister Pat Bell who ordered the review, “a cause for concern, particularly given the level of economic activity that is taking place in the region.” Now that’s an understatement from Mr. Bell, arguably the only Liberal cabinet minister who can speak knowledgeably about the northwest. Briefly, the regional jobless rate in July was 11.9 per cent and 12.2 per cent in June, roughly 50 per cent more than a year ago at a time when everyone is pointing at the northwest as a place of economic growth. Worse yet, the northwest is the only region in B.C. where the jobless rate is in double digits and the statistics indicate the number of people working is dropping, not increasing. What the review will most likely find, and it’s something that will be of no surprise to Mr. Bell and others, is that there is a gap between the skill level of people who live here now and the kind of jobs now opening up. This is a recurring theme of the regional economy and, ironically enough, forms the heart of a wideranging – but as of yet murky – provincial plan to address the skills gap. If Mr. Bell can take what his staffers provide and push for a quicker closing of the gap, then more power to him. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

have no sympathy for dog owners who ignore by-laws and then bristle when their pets are impounded and, if accused of having bitten someone, face trial. But I do have sympathy for all dogs, even those who have bitten me, for they know not what they do. I feel especially sympathetic toward an impounded young dog who, by the owner’s comments, has spent many of his days in the bush while his owner worked, and had little interaction with children. And I have neither sympathy nor patience for owners, or their far flung Facebook supporters, who bleat awaiting a judge’s decision after they’ve allowed their animal to run afoul of the law. I’ve had to skirmish with many a neighbour’s dog and listen to owners’ wimpy, illogical excuses after their dog either crossed the pavement to bite me, tackle my leashed dogs, or followed me home and squeezed under my fence to muscle in on my dogs’ food and territory.

The bite was beyond anything that could be attributed to a playful nip or misunderstanding by the dog. A six-year-old boy sustained minor scratches to his right hip. An 11-year-old boy was uninjured but had his pants torn. “The mother was walking down the street with the threeyear-old and six-year-old boys when the dog attacked without provocation. The 11-year-old boy was playing road hockey on the street when he was attacked. The 1.5-year-old German shepherd had escaped its fenced yard with another German shepherd. The other dog was not involved in the incident. A third German shepherd did not leave the yard. The people involved, witnesses and the owner of the dog, were all spoken with during the course of the investigation.” The longer this pup is confined to the Thornhill pound where it receives minimal exercise and human interaction, the less chance it has of being rehabilitated and re-homed if a judge grants a reprieve.

Somehow it’s always the dog’s fault as though dogs sign their adoption papers with a paw dipped in ink like an Iraqi voter. In Thornhill’s dog pound, a young German shepherd has already waited five months for a judge to decide its fate. I’ve read 33 comments and conflicting versions of events in The Terrace Standard and many more on a Facebook website seeking signatures on a petition asking for the dog’s relocation to the Kitimat SPCA shelter until its trial in December. I’ve also seen the dog’s yard. If wooden fencing visible from the street, too low to deter a shepherd and with two six-inch wide boards missing, is representative of any backyard enclosure, leaving the yard was easy.

The Mail Bag Climate change is happening now Dear Sir: While I appreciate Malcolm Baxter’s reference in his column of Aug. 8, 2012, to me as an effective advocate for the environment, for the record I am not an ecotourism operator, and consider myself an advocate for civil society and a community organizer, rather than simply an “environmentalist”. And I have no intention of getting into a debate with him over the musings of an obscure German chemist who was on the Board of Directors of Shell Oil Germany, and who was selected by climate change deniers as Germany’s top environmentalist. And who frankly admits he is not a qualified climate change scientist. Mr. Baxter approaches this issue like all the other climate change deniers – cherrypicking so-called “science” in order to validate their particular world view. But anyone with a cheap laptop and an Internet connection can Google up a whole slew

of ill-qualified people with weird opinions on climate change. Baxter’s pejorative reference to the “Church of Climate Change” confirms his ideas on climate change are rooted in politics, not science. He has offered up unqualified speculation - untested, unverified, and lacking in peer review – as “science”. It is not science: it’s opinion.

Baxter obviously should understand what science is. Science is neither a collection of facts (that are called data), nor is it speculation, but instead it is a process of inquiry and investigation that includes rigorous peer review by colleagues. Ironically, a real climate change skeptic, funded by the petro chemical billionaire Koch Brothers, has recently released a re-

port on the very subject Baxter writes about, the climate change science (process) presented by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a group representing thousands of climate change scientists. I refer to recent work done by Dr. Richard Muller, who is a professor of physics at UC Berkeley, a MacArthur Fellow and co-founder

of the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project. If you don’t understand the scientific process, you don’t get to be a physicist at Berkeley (which has more Nobel laureates than any other University in the world). Muller was also one of the principle critics of Al Gore’s “hockey stick” graph, initially claiming that the mathematics behind it was flawed. He is per-

haps the most highly qualified and credible skeptic in regard to the science around climate change. So he did what real scientists do: he joined with other highly qualified scientists and peer reviewed the IPCC work, and he recently published the results of two years of his and his team’s examination of the science (process) around investigations into climate change, and

in particular the work of the IPCC. He concluded that the consensus of the science community that the earth has warmed by 1.6 C is correct, and further, that the evidence is now overwhelming that this warming is humaninduced. He said that the IPCC work was well and correctly done. This work was funded not by environmentalists or by Baxter’s phantom church of climate change but by the world’s leading funders ($60 million) of climate change deniers. It has shaken the climate change denier world to its core. Nor will I defend the environmental movement, which has been epically ineffective in communicating the importance of this issue to the public. Some in the environmental movement have been as silly about climate change science as the worst of the climate change deniers. They often confuse weather with climate, and in the worst cases simply exaggerate, skew and twist information.

There’s value in refining petroleum

T

he following passage is an excerpt of a column I wrote that ran in this location in The Terrace Standard in December 2011: “The debates about the pros and cons of some of the proposed projects are important, as shifting paradigms always come with anxiety and insecurity. “A lot of the questions can be answered with facts and figures; some will never be answered as they just require believing in diversifying the economy is necessary.” And then came Aug. 17 and the proposal to add a refinery to the mix of planned industrial projects in this region. It took the con side merely three hours to denounce and ridicule this proposal. This stance of strong opposition is taken in conjunction with the opposition against the Northern Gateway pipeline project, and it was further argued that it would not make economic sense. I am not entirely sure if all the facts and figures were on the table

to make the economic statement this decisive, but that’s beside the point. The economics in a natural resource economy are primarily driven by commodity prices, globally driven and hence hard to influence from within, and regulations and tax structures, seemingly easier to influence as these are the primary mandate of any elected government within a sovereign nation. In this particular case the economics, or better the practicability and success, are driven by the customer side. The customers in focus of Northern Gateway are the booming Asian markets, which already have value-add infrastructure in place and are dependent on oil crude supplies to justify the large-scale investments made, and of course to defend the jobs that go along with them. Breaking a single product into three or four different products far from the market would additionally increase shipping costs, as the economies of scale are diluted. So, the cards are stacked

GUEST COMMENT

ALEX PIETRALLA against a refinery in this region, at least within the current macroeconomic situation and apparent market needs on the customer side. But there is a big thorn in the side of natural resource economies. They are so highly dependent on externalities, that they are extremely difficult to plan and therefore to build and develop a region or a community. The boom and bust is well

known and leaves regions scared, education systems unmanageable and infrastructure spending highly unpredictable, as the necessary investments need to show a stable social and monetary return on these investments / tax dollars. This is where adding value becomes critical for the long-term prosperity of nations and so this project proposal by David Black is really not decided in the backrooms of Beijing, the corporate towers in Calgary, or the financial centres. The decision to add value, to move western Canada up one level is made in Ottawa and the provincial legislature. It is a political decision and should be on page one of the National Energy Policy. Answering the question of what does Canada want to do with its resource abundance is imminent. Adding value within the petrochemical industry is highly rewarding not only on the product side, but also on the engineering and service side.

Canada, as one of the few democratic oil-rich countries, can drive a cleaner extraction and processing agenda than many other nations, and this know-how and technology then becomes an export product by itself, thereby allowing other countries to reduce the environmental impacts, which helps all, as global warming is not decided or solved in Canada alone. We should be thankful that Black has opened this discussion. To those that confront him with mere self-interest, a quick quote from Alexis de Tocqueville is in order: “Self-interest properly understood is different. It means appreciating that paying attention to everyone else’s self-interest –in other words to the common welfare – is in fact a precondition for one’s own ultimate well-being.” It is a mark of pragmatism that looking out for the other guy isn’t just good for the soul – it’s good for business.

No one can deny climate change The situation is dire enough without having to be exaggerated. But I hope Baxter is right – wouldn’t it be grand if we could all just go on living unexamined and selfish lives with not a care about the world our grandchildren will inherit? I, too, am a skeptic. I don’t believe society, or governments, are yet willing to address this issue rationally or effectively. This failure has its roots in our collective unwillingness to significantly change behaviours that are at the root of climate change.

In order to fill increasingly banal and empty lives, many of us continue to lead unexamined lives in the pursuit of “things”, when the only things we know that can create true happiness are family, friends, freedom to believe what we want and worship as we will, as well as health, and being secure within a civil society. And maybe wild places, fishing and good wine. The only people who can fix climate change are the people who caused it. Humanity will get serious about this issue when we recognize it is

in our self-interest to do so - when we can either make a buck fixing it or it becomes a simple issue of survival. We may get to it in time, but then, maybe not. Our predicament has to get a whole lot uglier is my unscientific and unqualified opinion. And I hope I am wrong about that. Baxter’s lack of journalistic integrity in offering up the opinion of a quack as science condemns himself to the most horrible church of all – the church of the irrelevant. Bruce Hill, Terrace, B.C.

Centre not involved in forestry project Dear Sir: I enjoyed reading about the work of Kalum Ventures in trying different ways to work in the woods (“Select logging sees success,” The Terrace Standard, Aug. 21, 2012). It looks like selection logging gives them a tool to meet cultural and environmental needs in sensitive areas, and to be strategic in selecting what products come

from the forest. However, I do need to point out an error in your article, where you state that the Skeena-Nass Centre for Innovation in Resource Economics (SNCIRE) has been working as a consultant to Kalum Ventures. This is not the case. SNCIRE is not a consultant. SNCIRE is a non-profit organization that identifies, develops and promotes opportu-

nities to build a resilient and sustainable natural resource economy in the region. We support and celebrate everyone whose work helps to strengthen our communities by diversifying the economy. Rick Brouwer, Executive Director, Skeena-Nass Centre for Innovation in Resource Economics, Terrace, B.C.

It’s just a pipe dream Dear Sir: Greetings from the Great Bear Rainforest, smack dab on the proposed tanker route. C’mon folks, don’t get bamboozled by David Black’s recent pipe dream. The proposal for a $13 billion refinery north of Kitimat is nothing but a last ditch effort by the backroom boys in Premier Christy Clark’s camp to save the Liberals’ sorry posteriors. It is just another part of her suggestion that Enbridge can get B.C.’s approval for the Northern Gateway pipelines if there’s enough economic benefit for this province. Not only is Black’s proposal never going to fly, it also

doesn’t change any of the reasons for rejecting either the pipeline or the tanker traffic. It would still mean piping diluted bitumen from the tar sands to Kitimat through avalancheprone mountains and over salmon-bearing rivers, in which the inevitable pipeline leak would be devastating. It would still mean hundreds of tankers negotiating the treacherous Douglas Channel each year. It would still mean trusting Enbridge – a corporation with a most dubious track record, and cavalier attitude toward safety. They’ve spent over $800 million so far and haven’t succeeded

in cleaning up the dilbit (diluted bitumen) spill on the Kalamazoo River in Michigan that took place in 2010. Black’s proposal does absolutely nothing to mitigate any of these risks. In any case, after a year of trying, Black has no backers, no investors. He’s just banking on people, like the mayor of Kitimat, getting on board so that the pipeline will receive public support. And then, when it is approved, guess what? “Sorry, folks: it was a good idea, but I just couldn’t get anyone to put up the $13 billion.” What will they try next to convince us? Andrew Williams, Princess Royal Island, B.C.

Defecating dogs not wanted Dear Sir: I regularly bring my kids to George Little Park and, nine times out of 10, I see dogs that are off leash. Owners allow their pets to run freely and poop in the park and, twice in the past week, I have observed dogs defecating in the park while the owners neglected to clean up after them. Do the owners not realize young children could step in the dog feces? I wonder how people can be so irresponsible and inconsiderate. We are talking about raw sewage. This is a health hazard- a question of hygiene and public health, not to mention safety. Children at play could startle a dog, prompting an attack. I feel very uneasy about letting my kids play in the park when there are strange dogs roaming

about. It has come to the point where I am thinking of avoiding the park. I wonder why there are pet laws if they are not being enforced. I pay taxes to have the city install signs and “poop bags” at Ferry Island for owners to pick up after their dogs, yet the island is littered with dog feces. It seems there are always animals running around off-leash. Why bother with the signs and bags if the authorities are not enforcing the laws? I do not feel safe in our city’s parks and am infuriated by how our tax money is disappearing down the drain. Melina Jacques, Terrace, B.C.

■Burned out THE DRIVER of this van got out safely after it caught fire while heading north on the Nisga’a Hwy about 10 km north of Terrace the evening of Aug. 24. The vehicle was left to burn because it was outside the fire protection area of the city. Police blocked off the road in both directions, which held up traffic for a couple of hours until it was safe to pass.

COURSES IN TERRACE 2012

Shoplifter banned A MAN who shoplifted with his baby will spend one year following conditions to curb his behaviour. Clay Engel, 24, was sentenced to a conditional discharge of 12 months probation with conditions after pleading guilty to one charge of theft under $5,000 and one charge of attempting to escape lawful custody by Judge Calvin Struyk in Terrace provincial court. On Feb. 10, police

reported that a shoplifter had been arrested by the loss prevention officer of Save on Foods. When he heard that police had been called, he attempted to leave with his baby, police said. Police arrested him when they arrived and called the other parent to come get the baby. Engel is forbidden from going to Save on Foods and from being within 20 metres of the store. He must also

write a letter of apology to the store’s loss prevention officer and to complete 20 hours of community work service. Engel will not have to provide a DNA sample to police and does not have to pay a victim fine surcharge. A conditional discharge means that if the person follows the courtordered conditions for a specific time period then he will not have a criminal record.

Egg harvesting safeguards ďŹ sh By Samantha Garvey

NATIONAL LA-Z-BOY EVENT GOING ON NOW! A COLLABORATIVE effort took place last week on the banks of Williams Creek to collect eggs and sperm from 210 sockeye salmon to be reared in a controlled facility. The annual egg-take, called the Fry Outplant Program that’s part of the Sockeye Recovery Program, has taken place for five years and provides a safeguard for sockeye returns. Margaret Kujat, a contractor working alongside the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), led a crew of more than 10 workers and volunteers last week to net 105 spawning females in order to collect the eggs. Last Wednesday, the eggs caught a flight to Bella Coola where they will be reared at the Snootli Creek Hatchery and released as fry next spring. The target is 300,000 fry. On Aug. 22, crews collected 105 males, expressed the sperm, or milt, and then contained and shipped it to Bella Coola on the same flight. But the effort is a multi-agency one. Included is the Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources including BC Timber Sales, the Lakelse Watershed Stewards Society, the Terrace Salmonid Enhancement Society and the Kitselas First Nation. “When everyone works together, it sure makes the job easier,� said Kujat. The most important aspect of the program is to safeguard the sockeye species, said Lana Miller, resource restoration biologist with DFO. If a catastrophic event took place one year, for example major floods when the eggs are in a sensitive state, “we have a safeguard,� she said. Sockeye returns have declined by an alarming 92 per cent in the last three cycles, said Miller. That is three fouryear life cycles totalling more than 12 years. “We can’t narrow down the reason for low returns to one cause,

EGGS WERE collected from sockeye, Aug. 22, before being reared in a Bella Coola facility. so it’s hard to come up with one response,� said Kujat. For example, sockeye provide a high value to commercial fisheries, she said. “It’s kind of like the wild, wild west out there.� Once the salmon are 200 miles offshore, they are open for anybody to fish, from any country. She added that commercial fishing from Japan and the U.S. would be examples of threats to salmon. Habitat degradation is another major factor, which happens often when the river floods. As a result, eggs can be moved easily in the gravel and become a food source for small fish and land animals, Miller said. For this reason, there are programs running simultaneously for habitat creation. Miller will be part of another DFO crew to build offchannel spawning habitats in Scully Creek and Williams Creek near the Old Lakelse Bridge. Important to the process is following the Alaskan Sockeye Protocol to ensure that the milt and eggs are healthy and disease-free. There is still mortality of the eggs after collection, hence a buffer of approximately 78,000 eggs more than would

make exactly 300,000. Since the program began, the sockeye returns have stabilized. But the program will only continue as long as the funding does. “(This) might be our last year,� said Miller. At the moment, the money for both the egg take and habitat creation come from the Pacific Salmon Commission, which is an international body of the U.S. and Canada. Spawning salmon are either four or five years old. Last year, there were a high number of five-year-old salmon in the counts, which led Miller to believe that this year may be low for spawning salmon. But so far the numbers are encouraging. During the first physical count, where crews walk the creek and count the salmon by hand, 2,500 salmon were found. “Sometimes, (2,500) is the entire return,� Miller said, adding that the number will go up, making this year’s return higher than expected. Another good sign is the discovery of eggs higher up the watershed, meaning enough fish used the downstream habitat to force additional fish to travel farther into the river,

Rupert man charged with theft A PRINCE Rupert man faces charges after an alleged altercation with a grocery store worker in Terrace earlier this month. Gordon Pagens, 20, has been charged with theft, assault, and three counts of breach of probation, said police in a release Aug. 21. On August 5, the Loss Prevention Officer of Save On Foods was allegedly assaulted by a man he arrested for

theft, said police. The man then reached for a knife in a sheath at his waist, at which point another store worker stepped in and assisted the Loss Prevention Officer to restrain the man, the release continued. Police took custody of the man, who was on conditions to not be in possession of weapons, including knives, and seized the knife, said the release. Officers also seized

from the man a lighter, ear bud style headphones, a key, and a knife that the man had stated were stolen from

a semi truck/trailer parked in the industrial area of Terrace that he was sleeping in, said police.

If these items belong to you, contact Const. Matt Anderson at the Terrace RCMP detachment.

Air passenger arrested POLICE WERE called to the Northwest Regional Airport last week after an airline refused to let a man board his flight because of his level of intoxication. The incident, which took place in the 24-hour period ending at 8 a.m. Aug. 24, resulted in the man, 65, being arrested for public intoxication.

“He was belligerent with Hawkair staff and uncooperative with police,” indicated a RCMP press release. During the same 24-hour period, officers patrolling downtown arrested eight men, ages 19, 50, 56, 49, 23, 20, 19 and 52, and one 18-year-old woman on separate incidents and locations for public intoxication.

RCMP caught up in corporate duel THE LOCAL RCMP detachment found itself in the midst of a national argument between broadcasting companies after a letter of support was sent to the federal government on behalf of Astral Media which owns the local CFTK television station and attached AM and FM radio outlets. Telecommunications and broadcasting giant BCE Bell, which owns CTV, has a $3.4 billion bid in to buy Astral

pending government approval. But three other multi-media companies, Cogeco Cable, Eastlink and Quebecor, object, saying too many television holdings would be

concentrated under one owner if the deal goes through. The local RCMP detachment was drawn in when it sent a support letter requested by Astral’s local broadcaster.

That letter was called inappropriate by officials from the three companies because the RCMP is taxpayer-financed. “It was not my intent to represent the RCMP

in my submission, nor is it representative of the official position of the RCMP,” said Terrace RCMP inspector Dana Hart, Aug. 22. “I was simply supporting a request from

a local broadcaster who has been supportive of our detachment’s efforts to make this community safe.” The three companies made their complaints to Canadian Heritage

minister James Moore. In addition to the local RCMP detachment, they said Telefilm Canada also sent a letter. It’s another federal agency supported by taxpayers.

From front

Court action That filing resulted in an informal Labour Relations Board hearing this spring. It dealt with the method in which layoff notices were distributed to instructors and came under the jurisdiction of the Academic Workers Union’s contract with the college. The new action, because it deals with legislation, falls under the jurisdiction of the courts, said Oliver. “We’ve sorted out the collective agreement issues and we need to sort this out now,” said Oliver. “The senior administration have taken this ready-fire-aim approach,” she said. “It is important that they follow the law.” In a release concerning the court filing, Henning sought to relieve worries. “We want to assure students coming to campus in a couple of weeks that they should feel secure that instructors and staff are on the job and there to help their learning experience,” Henning said. “These are internal matters that will be resolved in due course.” While the college has had to cut employees and operations spending, it did receive a onetime government grant of $839,000 this spring to bolster trades training offerings. And last week the college also received $1.2 million from the province for needed maintenance work and building and equipment upgrades at its various campuses across the northwest.

LET’S KEEP THEM SAVE! TIPS FOR DRIVERS

TIPS FOR WALKERS

• Watch for pedestrians and slow down when approaching a crosswalk. • Always yield to pedestrians. • Drivers must stop for school buses when lights flashing. • If you see another car stopped at a crosswalk, there’s probably a pedestrian crossing. • Drop kids off in a safe spot, away from intersections and traffic. • Remember that this is an exciting time for children, and they may have forgotten their road safety rules; therefore, drivers must pay extra attention.

• • • •

Obey all signs and traffic signals. Wear bright-colored clothing. Look left, right, and left again before crossing. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing, so you know that they see you.

Get the buzz on beekeeping TERRACE CAN boast about many local food growers and providers, including having the “champagne of honey.” Fireweed honey has its own colour – almost clear – and is considered the best in the world, says beekeeper Cynthia Ridler, of Mountain Meadow Honey. “Once you taste it, you’re going to be spoiled,” she says. Ridler started with a couple of beehives in 1994 and around 2004, she started doing it as a business, she says. She sells it at the farmers market if there’s a lot of it, otherwise she sells to local people and online to some friends. And thanks to a city bylaw, backyard bees are allowed here with certain restriction – for example, a backyard beekeeper is only allowed to have one or two hives. “A lot of backyard beekeepers just want one or two hives for their own honey and to get back to a little more control on their own food sources,” she says. At the fall fair this year, Ridler and others plan on doing a honey extraction demonstration by hand and with an electrical extractor and hand out information among other things, says Ridler. How does she know that her bees are producing fireweed honey when they can go to many different plants? “The significant crop is fireweed,” she says, adding that to call it fireweed honey, a majority of the flowers in the area have to be fireweed. Store bought honey can be pasteurized and she says it’s not clear why. “Honey is one substance on earth that never spoils,” says Ridler. Honey has been found in pyramids and the Egyptians used it to embalm people, she explains. It was also used for wax and is good because it doesn’t produce carbon monoxide and cleans the air, she says. The beekeepers at the fall fair plan to hand out information; some of which is little known things about bees and honey. How much honey she gets from her hives depends on the weather. “Some years we have hives with over 300 pounds of honey each. Last year I never took any honey at all,” she says, adding that this summer has been better. “We need a combination of it (rain and sun). Bees don’t thrive in extremes,” she says. Ridler invites everyone to come out to the fair and ask questions of the beekeepers. “We can provide them with information, how to get started,” she says about those who might be interested in starting their own hives. Ridler knows the bees so well, she doesn’t wear protective clothing much any more. If you’re checking inside the hive where the queen is and it’s a nice cool day, you could destroy the brood stock and you’re going to get stung, she says. “On a sunny, hot day where they’re actually trying to cool off, they’re happy you’re doing that and they don’t bother you a bit,” she says, adding she might wear the veil sometimes because bees will fly up in your face and startle you, which startles them and can lead to getting stung. And it’s been determined that bees get to know you, she says. Backyard beekeepers will be at the Thornhill Community Centre during the fall fair Sept. 8 - 9.

Vocal teacher gives gift of choral library to area

THE REGION has been given a gift of a choral library housed here in Terrace. Katherine vanKampen, who ran a summer music theatre camp here last week, donated her choral library, which fills a filing cabinet plus three more drawers of hanging files after seeing a need for it here. “The library will be accessible to everyone in the Pacific Northwest who teaches choir, both public and private, and will save teachers having to spend huge amounts of money on purchasing music for their groups,” says Bonnie Juniper, president of the Pacific Northwest Music Festival, which put on the music camp. A choral library consists of many copies of many selections of music, in all different styles and languages, for different ranges of singers voices, explains Juniper. “This is why this donation is so fantastic,” says Juniper. “It costs a lot of money for a choir to purchase just one piece to sing, as you need a copy for every singer, plus the conductor and the pianist. “Having so many selections donated to the Terrace area will be a wonderful asset for all choirs for many years to come.” VanKampen had an international singing career and is now a vocal teacher and festival adjudicator – she was one of the adjudicators at this year’s festival. The choral library is housed at the Cedar River Physiotherapy Clinic.

S

uitcase packed. Check! Journals, books, e-reader, readied … Check! Animals tended. Plants watered. Check and check. House-sitter briefed and in place. Gratefully checked! Camera, cell phone, last minute emails—have it, have it, done. Folks we’re visiting notified about when to approximately expect us … Yep. I could go on, but since I stretched the truth up there when I said my suitcase was packed (it almost is), I should move along. It’s the end of August, a phrase that in my house translates roughly as, “Hit the road and holiday it up.” I’m not sure why we always go away at the end of August—especially since it’s one of Terrace’s best months. Gardens are almost ready for harvest, the river is full of fish, and the sun tends to show up and make everything extra beautiful with its warm golden glow. Yet go we do. Maybe we leave to avoid the truth that days are getting shorter again. (It was dark by 9:45—9:45!—tonight. Wail, mourn, lament!). Or maybe it’s one last nod to summer, a celebratory road trip farewell. Then again, maybe it’s just because we’re creatures of habit. I look forward to the long hours of driving—to the idle chatting and occasional deep comments. (Note: what is “deep” midway through a 16-hour drive is usually more hilarious and/or odd than weighty, but I digress.) I’m excited about the audio stories we signed out of the library.

JUST A THOUGHT

EV BISHOP

Have Suitcase, Will Travel I like the way my mind wanders and skips ahead to future plans, then dips back to past memories, as I watch the highway stretching out ahead of us and the changing scenery streaming by. The little communities we drive through spark my imagination. I get excited every time I see cows. I’m more than slightly awed by the crazy diversity of our landscape up here in B.C.: riotous rivers and twistyturny bends through green, green, green mountainous terrain—to honey gold fields as far at the eye can see—to burnt copper earth rising in jagged points and cliffs, decorated with sparse scrub brush—to the rock faces and ravines of the Fraser Canyon … The drive from Terrace to Van is a

special part of living up here. Whenever I do it, I’m hit with all sorts of sentimental memories and nostalgia. But I guess that makes sense. I’ve lived in the North all my life. I’ve travelled that highway as a little girl eager to visit my grandparents. Daydreamed along it as a nine-year-old. Motored down it as a teen on my way to meet up with this person or that. Done the return trip in three days more than once. Journeyed along it on almost every holiday my husband and I have taken. Likewise, it’s been the path toward almost all our adventures with our kids. This year the trip has some new twists. One of our stopovers is at my daughter’s house—fun, but also weird! And when we go to the Island, we’re hitting some different spots: most notably the Sooke Potholes. I’d be lying if I said a change of scenery isn’t refreshing, that it isn’t a wonderful (and needed) break to visit unfamiliar places and have new experiences. But at the end of the day, I don’t travel to get away so much as I do to connect more closely—to the people I’m so fortunate to have in my life and to the gorgeous province I call home. It’s not too late for a road trip before fall schedules fill up and tighter time constraints rule. Go gallivanting—and in good Terrace tradition, no doubt we’ll run into each other in the most unexpected place. But now I have to go. My halfpacked suitcase is calling, plus the word “tradition” reminded me—yes, we have iPods we can plug into the stereo for the trip, but I want some of our old music for memory lane’s sake. CDs . . . Check!

Winning runs in the family Father and son take top spots in out-of-town race THE CHRISTENSENS, long-standing members of Terrace’s athletic community, can’t even go on vacation without running a marathon. Mike Christensen and son Thomas were on a family vacation in Manitoba earlier this month, where they competed in the Birtie River Run, in Birtle, Manitoba. The 4th annual event hosted 59 runners, the majority of competitors hailing from Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Except, of course, the Christensens from northern B.C. “I think Mike and Thomas are the longest travellers to date,” said race organizer Steve Desjardins. “The run is getting more popular and is attracting runners from around Manitoba and Saskatchewan.” The event had four races, a two-kilometre run, a five-kilometre run, a 10-kilometre run, and a half marathon. The two-kilometre run had six runners, the five-kilometre run had 13 runners, the 15-kilometre run had 19 runners and the half marathon had 21 runners. Thomas kicked off the day by winning the five-kilometre race with a time of 17:42. Mike followed suit, running comfortably with last year’s winner for the first 15 kilometres of the event and then taking off in the last portion to win the half marathon with a time of 1:31:40 and match his son’s winning performance. Thomas, who just returned from competing in the triathlon event at the B.C. Summer Games, was encouraged to enter the race by his triathlon coach Willie Muller. Thomas placed 10th at the B.C. Summer Games, held earlier this summer in

Surrey. The Manitoba run was Thomas’ first ever running race. He is also a devoted swimmer. Willie told me to enter him even if he protests, because his running is really coming along, said Mike. And it’s a good thing he did. “Although he still contends that he wasn’t happy at the time that we entered him. He now concedes that it was okay,” said Mike. Although Thomas entered the race on a whim, Mike had planned on entering the race for some time as part of this year’s training. After winning the All Season’s half marathon for the last three years, he decided to start his training earlier this year. He found the Birtle River Run event on the Manitoba Running Association website and pre-registered, knowing he would be there on vacation at the time. “I am a little more motivated in my training this year because this may be the last year I am able to beat my son in a race,” he said. “He already kicks my butt in swimming.” Thomas also attended a four-day swimming camp with the Manitoba Marlins at the Pan Am Pool in Winnipeg the week after the race. Late last week, Mike said the pair were getting ready to compete in last weekend’s 10-kilometre King of the Mountain Race. “Thomas says he doesn’t want to do it,” he said. “But I’m going with the coaches advice,” he said, and entered him anyway, noting that the life lesson from all of this is: “Listen to your coach.”

Motocross riders rep Terrace on the road

TANYA MCCARRON PHOTO

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD CONNOR McCarron, who is currently ranked 3rd in 50cc seven to eight-year-old class, gets some air in Smithers on July 29. “He’s had an incredible first year racing,” said photographer Tanya McCarron.

AS THE motocross season nears the finish line, with just one more weekend of racing on Sept. 15 and 16 in Prince George, Terrace Motocross Association (TMXA) riders are sitting high in the provincial standings. Terrace’s riders travel around the province all spring and summer to British Columbia Motocross Association (BCMA) events. This season saw eight weekend events in Prince George, Quesnel, Williams Lake, Smithers and here in Terrace. Each weekend includes two full motocross races (one Saturday and one Sunday) for a total of 16 motos each season. Each moto consists of two races, one in the

morning and one in the afternoon in each class. “Many riders ride in 2 or 3 events which normally means 4 or 6 races each day,” said Ken Parkes of the TMXA. The riders who attend these events “have represented Terrace well,” he said. “These riders promote our track and our area, and in turn many of the provincial riders learn about the Terrace track and are encouraged to come to Terrace for our two events” he said, noting that the race in July hosted many people from out of town who stayed an extra week to camp and fish. “The TMXA has spawned several new riders in the Terrace/Kitimat area that are

now going out and making a mark on the provincial scene and placing high in the Provincial BCMA standings,” he said. Here are the standings: Ty Calcutt is sitting in first place in Jr. MX1 and Jr. MX3. Rice Brandt and Evan Pinto are first and second place respectively in Jr. B. Andrew Kennedy is first place in MX1. Jessie Lanterman is second place in schoolboy. Joey Parkes is second place in 85cc 12 16-year-old. Austin Devost holds third place in a tight battle for the 65cc class and seven-year-old Connor McCarron is ranked third in 50cc seven to eight-year-old class, for his first year racing.

TWO LIGHTNING-CAUSED fires in the northwest that both began two weeks ago were left to burn for the benefit of the forests. A 1,400-hectare (3,459 acres) blaze near Morice Lake is â&#x20AC;&#x153;chewing away at whatever fuel it can,â&#x20AC;? said regional wildfire coordinator Brian Grunewald with the Northwest Fire Centre Aug. 25. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are finding it is doing more good than harm,â&#x20AC;? he

said. Grunewald added that a 3,500-hectare (8,649 acres) wildfire outside Boya Lake Park, east of Dease Lake, was burning in a fire-dominated ecology, meaning the health of the forest depends on occasional fires. As of Aug. 25, both blazes had stopped expanding to new area and were being monitored by wildfire crews as part of modified responses. From Aug. 20 to 25, crews found another 11 abandoned

re the stocks of B.C.’s second largest salmon bearing river being properly managed in 2012? Have they ever been managed properly? To answer these important questions we must ascertain what constitutes adequate management of an anadromous fishery. Fortunately, the template for the proper management of salmon stocks exists. It is called the Wild Salmon Policy (WSP), and it was cobbled together by fisheries scientists for the use of civil servants in Fisheries and Oceans Canada, formerly, and more popularly, known as the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). The policy is bright stuff that turns on the principle of sustainable development, a term coined by the far-seeing and game -changing UN commission chaired by former Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Bruntland. Flowing from the commission’s revolutionary recommendations was the idea that maintaining biological diversity was an essential component of sustainability of all resources and, ultimately, all planet life. The principle of biodiversity recognizes that the whole is the sum of its parts and goes a step farther to assert that the health of the whole is determined by the health of its parts. It’s an enlightened concept that recognizes the connectedness of all things in the natural world. To use an anatomical analogy, if you severed your thumb,

WHEN 11-YEAR-OLD Cody Bailey travelled to Prince Rupert to compete in his first golf tournament, he didn’t think he had much of a shot – especially when he saw that the athletes he was competing against were between 13 and 18 years old. But Cody left the Prince Rupert Junior Jubilee on Aug. 12 as the low-net winner, shooting 103 on the par 70 course on both days. In golf, the low-net winner is the player who shoots the best overall compared to his handicap, while the low-gross winner is the golfer who shoots the best out of the whole field. Cody’s handicap right now is 25. But the tournament wasn’t his personal best. “That was two weeks ago,” said Cody, at the Skeena Valley Golf Course after participating in the last day of the junior summer golf program. “I shot 83.” “He’s probably out here five, six times a week,” said his Dad, Allan, noting that golf is pretty much all Cody wants to do. The Skeena Valley Golf Course junior program ran all summer and Cody was an avid participant. Even though the program is over, Tuesday nights are still designated junior night at the course. Cody, who attends Uplands Elementary, also plays soccer and hockey. But golf is his passion. He’s even started beating his dad out on the course – and teaching his younger sister the ways of the green. Cody started playing over three years ago with his dad, shooting balls at the range and taking a few shots here and there out playing rounds on the course. He won a fun tournament put on by the junior program last summer. But the Junior Jubilee in Prince Rupert was his first serious, out-of-town competition. Cody is hoping to get a job at the golf course next summer, and he’s already talking about the B.C. Summer Games. The low-net award is in memory of Francis Marie Wharton Loeppky, who was a junior at the Centennial Golf Course. She died on the highway between Rupert and Terrace in 2003 and her mother has been giving out the award since 2004 and will do so until 2014. The plaque reads: “May a spark of her spirit and determination remain within you.” “It’s a real honour,” said Cody’s Dad.

salmon species? Running a salmon fishery in the environmentally sustainable fashion demanded by the WSP necessitates a radical restructuring of current practice. Since its inception, the operative managerial paradigm governing the west coast salmon fisheries has been to optimize the catch for the commercial fishing industry. The government institution charged with the welfare of fish on behalf of the citizens of Canada has instead been the servant of industry. That this has been so almost since the beginning of the European fishery is scandalous and is largely responsible for all the fisheries woes we have today. Clearly, there is no place for non-selective methods of catching fish in a sustainable fishery. Because nets are indiscriminate, there would be no nets anywhere, including First Nations nets in the river, with the exception of beach seines, which can be used in a selective manner. The entire commercial fishery would be conducted in the river with traps, wheels and dip nets, and fisheries closer to source of the rivers would be favoured. Since there is nothing more vital to the survival of fish than healthy habitats, the habitat section of the fisheries department would have to be large and have as much weight as any other section of the institution, and fisheries habitat legislation would have to be strengthened, not weakened as is happening under the current government.
