Teck admits to polluting the Columbia River in Washington By Timothy Schafer Teck has admitted in a U.S. court that more than 100 years of historic efĂ€uent from its mining and smelting operations in Trail have polluted the Columbia River in Washington. Teck Metals made the “admission of factâ€? in an agreement reached

Monday with the Colville Confederated Tribes over environmental damage caused by efÀuent discharges dating back to 1896. As a result, the agreement under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) regarding certain facts precludes

a trial that was expected to commence Monday if the agreement had not been made. Under the agreement Teck stated some hazardous substances in the slag and efÀuent discharged from the Teck Trail Operations between 1896 and 1995 ended up in the Upper Columbia River in the

U.S. Teck communications manager Richard Deane said the court proceedings were one more step in the process of righting the alleged wrong. “The hurdle for establishing (discharge) is very low,â€? said Deane. “It takes only a molecule of a hazardous substance to be released to meet that requirement.â€? The litigation will ultimately establish what level of restoration, if any, is needed to restore natural resources that may have been injured by historic Trail Operations releases, and determine if any monetary compensation is due to the Colville Tribes or the State of Washington for their response costs. Deane said the agreement prevents what could have been a long and costly trial on the matters of fact, one. Despite the agreement, important scientiÂżc issues, as well as jurisdictional and other legal issues relating to the case remain to be resolved. In 2006, Teck voluntarily entered into an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to fund remedial investigations and feasibility studies for the Upper Columbia River. That resulted in the withdrawal of an unilateral administrative order slapped on the company in 1999, and the dismissal of the original claims of the tribes in the state. But in 2007 the band launched a lawsuit requiring Teck to comply with a U.S. EPA order to undertake the environmental study because progress over the past three years was deemed “disappointing.â€? Deane said Teck remains “fully committed to complete the studies required to fully assess the risks due to contaminants in the Upper Columbia,â€? and if necessary remedy the effects of its past practices on the Upper Columbia River if there are any unnecessary risks that need to be addressed. The agreement provides the minimal framework to allow the court to rule in the case as the plaintiffs—the Colville bands and the state—continue to push for a judgment that Teck Metals was liable for response costs on the river. “The amount of the response costs will be

determined in a subsequent phase of the case,” Deane said. The environmental assessment funded by Teck is expected to be completed in 2015 on the Upper Columbia River—to determine the impacts to human health and environment—and will be used in those subsequent court proceedings to determine if Teck must pay any costs.

“The results are showing that the beach is safe and the water quality is better than any water quality standard,” said Deane. “And the ¿sh are … safer than any other water body in the State of Washington.” Through modernization and implementation of new technology there have been substantial improvements in the environmental performance of Teck, said Deane. Through new furnace technology and other recent modi- A5 ¿cations to the site, the company achieved a 95 per cent reduction of metals to air and water, he said. For the state Department of Ecology, the admission is a major victory in what has been a long, drawn-out ¿ght. “It’s very good news for us,” spokeswoman Jani Gilbert told The Canadian Press. “It means that everyone is accepting the science ... and we’re just closer in the process to getting some resolution of this.”

When Teck American, the U.S. subsidiary of Teck Resources, cleaned up Black Sand Beach two years ago, they hauled away 9,100 tonnes of slag. The lawsuit brought by the Colville Confederated Tribes claims that 145,000 tonnes has been dumped directly into the river, where it has Àowed downstream and settled on the riverbed. Bottomfeeding aquatic species eat it and the metals begin their journey up the food chain.

The lawsuit claims the metals have contaminated the surface water, ground waters and sediments of the upper Columbia River and Lake Roosevelt, the reservoir created by the Grand Coulee Dam. The 5,700-square-kilometre Colville reservation borders the Columbia River. The cost of cleaning up the contamination has been pegged as high as $1 billion, and the state wants Teck to bear that cost.

Environmental Assessment of the Proposed Fording River Operations Swift Project

Open House and Invitation to Comment

2. The BC Jobs Plan is working. Through smart investments in infrastructure and skills training, BC has become a national leader in job creation. 3. Over the past 12 months, BC has added more net new jobs (+51,700) and full-time jobs (+70,300) than any other province in Canada and right here in the Kootenays, 2,400 new jobs have been created.

Teck Coal Limited (Proponent) is proposing an extension to its existing Fording River Operations located north of Elkford, within the East Kootenay region of southeastern B.C., referred to as the Swift Project (proposed Project). The proposed Project would maintain the existing production capacity of the Fording River Operations and would extend overall mine life by approximately 20 years.


The Proponent must obtain an environmental assessment certificate (Certificate) before any work can be undertaken on the proposed Project. However, prior to submission of an application for a Certificate (Application) by the Proponent, Environmental Assessment Office of British Columbia (EAO) must first approve Application Information Requirements.

EAO accepts public comments through the following ways:

The Application Information Requirements will specify the studies to be conducted and the detailed information to be provided by the Proponent in its Application. EAO has now received draft Application Information Requirements from the Proponent and invites comments on this draft. The intention of seeking public comments is to ensure that all potential effects – environmental, economic, social, heritage and health – that might result from the Project are identified for consideration as part of the environmental assessment process. There are 30 days for the submission of written comments by the public in relation to the draft Application Information Requirements. The comment period will begin on September 19, 2012 and end on October 19, 2012. An electronic copy of the draft Application Information Requirements and information regarding the environmental assessment process will be available at on September 19, 2012. Copies of the Draft Application Information Requirements are also available for viewing at these locations during the comment period:

Elkford Community Conference Centre (Teck Room) 818 Michel Road Elkford, B.C. on: September 19, 2012 from: 4 pm until 8 pm EAO, the Proponent and the Proponent’s environmental assessment consultants will be present to provide information and respond to questions about the Application Information Requirements at the Open House. All written comments received during the 30-day public comment period in relation to the draft Application Information Requirements will be considered. After taking public comments into account, EAO will finalize the Application Information Requirements and issue them to the Proponent. If you are unable to participate at this time, there will be an additional comment period during the Application review stage when you will also be able to provide comments to the EAO on the proposed Project.

NOTE: All written submissions received by EAO during the comment period in relation to the proposed Project are considered public and will be posted to the EAO website.

YOUR CITY....WORKING FOR YOU! Changes to City Garbage Collection Now In Effect

The City of Cranbrook will now only collect a maximum of three (3) garbage receptacles per week per household. The changes took effect on September 1, 2012 after City Council approved the amendment to the Solid Waste Collection bylaw at their regular meeting of August 13. The intent of the amendments to the bylaw is to further encourage recycling and composting thereby reducing the amount of garbage required to be disposed of each week. The Solid Waste Collection and Disposal bylaw also limits the size of receptacles (either containers or bags) to 100 litres and receptacles cannot weigh more than 20 kilograms each. Garbage containers are to have a water tight cover and smooth rim, must be in good structural and sanitary condition and have fixed handles. Plastic bags are to be securely tied closed at the top and be strong enough to withstand normal handling and lifting. For more information about solid waste pickup, your scheduled collection dates or to review the Solid Waste Collection and Disposal bylaw, visit the City of Cranbrook website at, click on the ‘Residents’ tab, and click ‘Solid Waste Pickup’.

Signatures forged on utilities contracts In December of last year the Cranbrook RCMP initiated a fraud investigation in relation to local business owners who noted irregularities with their natural gas bills. The resulting police investigation determined that these businesses, had either the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signatures or an employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature forged on a contract with Active Energy, or Active Renewable Marketing Ltd., an independent gas marketer licensed by the BC Utilities Commission. FortisBC is the supplier of natural gas to the area. As a result of these forged contracts Active Marketing Ltd. or Active Energy is listed on invoices/bills sent out by FortisBC. The Cranbrook RCMP investigation has identiÂżed two suspects who were not direct employees of either FortisBC or Active Energy but were sub-contracted agents working on commission. In their continuing investigation, the Cranbrook RCMP sent out close to 90 letters to Cranbrook and Kimberley businesses asking them to review their natural gas bills and to contact their local RCMP if they note any irregularities in those bills. To date, the Cranbrook RCMP have conÂżrmed 25 forged contracts and are looking into criminal charges of Uttering Forged Document against the two suspects. If anyone has any additional information about this or any other crime they can call the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471 or East Kooteney Crimestoppers (1-800-222-TIPS) You can also â&#x20AC;&#x153;Googleâ&#x20AC;? Cranbrook Crimestoppers and leave a webtip.

Gregarious Gardener by Top Crop Garden, Farm & Pet

Fall time is planting time As the growing season is winding down, home owners are looking more to winterizing their yards and gardens than planting. Fall is, however, a great time to plant, especially trees and shrubs. The soil temperature is still quite warm at this point, helping plants to quickly develop a good root system. The cooler air temperatures allow for transplanting with very little stress on the plant as it is taking the demand off the top growth. There is another reason why planting trees and shrubs makes sense in the fall. When purchasing nursery stock in the fall, it has grown through the selling season and the trees and shrubs are usually good-sized plants, representing an exceptional value for your money. Now is also when trees and shrubs show their spectacular fall colour and you can plant for year-round interest. Regular planting techniques apply for fall tree planting, but you might take some extra care with the cooler months quickly approaching. Newly planted trees taller than ďŹ ve feet should be staked for support against the wind until established. You might also want to consider placing a tree guard around the trunk to protect it from mice and other animals nibbling on the bark. Tree guards are a worthwhile, low-cost investment, because if a rodent girdles the bark off your tree, your tree will die. It is important to know that in the fall, you do not fertilize existing shrubs and trees as fertilizing can encourage new growth that might not have time to prepare for winter. Wait till spring before you fertilize. In the fall, you also want to reduce the amount of water you are giving your trees and shrubs. They just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need as much. It is important though, right before freeze up, to give them a very good deep watering. What you want to create is an ice ball around the roots of your tree or shrub as this is excellent winter root protection. Sometimes, trees are planted in the wrong location, with little or no thought being given to its size at maturity. Before buying a tree, do some research and consider the mature size as well as the planting location. People sometimes think that pruning is the answer for trying to keep a tree small. It is often better, however, to replace a tree that has outgrown its space with a more appropriate one, rather than pruning the existing tree to death. Pruning is a short term and frustrating solution that ultimately doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Trees are genetically programmed to reach a certain mature size. Removing a large portion of the branches means that the tree has fewer places to put needles or leaves that are necessary for photosynthesis. The roots of a tree absorb water and nutrients from the soil, but the leaves or needles have to absorb sunlight, in order for the plant to survive. If a tree doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough branches full of leaves or needles to nourish itself, it will die. Pruning is done for many reasons: to remove diseased or dead wood; to eliminate crossing branches; to make evergreens bushier; and to shape unruly trees. But not to make a tree ďŹ t in a spot that is not right for it. So take a look at your yard to see where it could use some â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sprucing upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; before the cooler season takes over. Till next time... happy gardening. Submitted by Tara

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officialâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;A Clear View reaches $1 million The East Kootenay Foundation for Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clear Viewâ&#x20AC;? goal was to raise $1 million to purchase a new digital stereotactic mammography unit for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. The goal was to do it in two years but thanks to some outstanding leadership gifts prior to the public launch (October 2011), many public do-

nations and fundraising events throughout the past year and a Âżnal gift of $100,000 from the Lake Windermere District Lions Club; history has been made one year ahead of schedule and the campaign has met its goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is with great pleasure that East Kootenay Foundation for Health can announce that thanks to a gift

of $100,000 from the Lake Windermere District Lions Club and the outpouring of support and Âżnancial donations from people, organizations, businesses, corporations and service clubs from throughout the East Kootenay; the A Clear View campaign has ofÂżcially met its goal,â&#x20AC;? declares EKFH Past-Chair Linda Berukoff.

Lions President Harold Hazelaar shares, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lake Windermere District Lions Club is proud to support both the Invermere and East Kootenay Regional Hospitals. When the A Clear View campaign was Âżrst announced, our members made a decision to be part of the picture. We have been working closely with Donna Grainger

at the foundation since March of this year to ensure that our club would help take the campaign to completion.â&#x20AC;? To celebrate the magnitude of the fundraising effort the Lake Windermere District Lions Club recently invited representatives from some of the key pre-campaign leadership organizations to a dinner to share and rejoice in the momentous occasion. President Hazelaar, Past-President Al Larratt and many members of the Lake Windermere District Lions Club welcomed: Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary ($250,000 leading gift): President Sandy Zeznik & Rachel Christie, 1st Vice President. Invermere Health Care Auxiliary ($50,000 gift): President Kerry Jopp, Joanne Myers, Secretary. Windermere Health Care Auxiliary ($18,000 part of KSCU gift): Past-President Sharryn Schmidt , Dorothy Anders & Raylene Oram, members. Edgewater Radium Health Care Auxiliary ($500): President Barb Neraasen. East Kootenay Foundation for Health (public campaign): PastChair Linda Berukoff, Chair Brian Clifford, Donna Grainger, Executive Director and Sheila Tutty , Invermereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Face of the Campaign. (Unable to attend were members of the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary - $10,000 gift). The evening featured a speech from EKFHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Linda Berukoff who highlighted the signiÂżcance and importance of the Health Care Auxiliaries in leading the push to make the campaign a reality, to organizations such as the Lions Club who showed faith by committing to take the campaign to its goal, to the faces of the campaign that literally brought life to the purpose and beneÂżts of the equipment and to all those donors, big and small, that made a charitable gift along the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really overcome by emotion when the reality hit that we see Clear View page 17

Kootenay News Advertiser Friday, September 14, 2012 Clear View from page 16

all made something beautiful happen. For me the campaign was not just about the Âżnancial outcome but about the wonderful array of moments that remind you how precious life is. A Clear View has impacted my life so wonderfully,â&#x20AC;? explains Donna Grainger, Executive Director. The real story is that the combined effort of every donor accomplished this goal one year earlier than the proposed two year campaign plan. Every person who made a gift, took part in an event, shared a story and showed support for someone with breast cancer, chose to be part of the picture. Because of that generosity these gifts will change the lives of individuals who may receive a breast cancer diagnosis and for that we can all be grateful because from start to Âżnish that is who the

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clear Viewâ&#x20AC;? is truly focused on. Should any donations be received by EKFH over and above the campaign goal these funds will be held in trust for the Diagnostic Imaging â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mammography fund as some additional equipment pieces may be required after the digital stereotactic equipment arrives at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. EKFH will be releasing an additional update as to arrival time on the equipment as well as a presenting a story on a year in review to celebrate you the donors and supporters of the campaign. A public open house celebration is planned after the equipment is in operation. There are only two words that can sum up a historical moment such as this, those being â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank youâ&#x20AC;?. A17


Lake Windermere District Lions Club, Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary, Invermere Health Care Auxiliary, Windermere Health Care Auxiliary, Edgewater/Radium Health Care Auxiliary & East Kootenay Foundation for Health celebrate achieving the fundraising goal for the A Clear View campaign.

The Jaffray and Baynes Lake Âżre departments raised nearly $9,000 for Muscular Dystrophy with their annual boot drive.

Firefighters fight MD with boots Members of the Jaffray and Baynes Lake Âżre departments had their boots in hand over the Labour Day Weekend for the annual Muscular Dystrophy Boot Drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boot drive was an astounding success and broke our all time fundraising record. In four hours we were able to raise $8774 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of BC,â&#x20AC;? says Jaffray Baynes Lake Fire Chief, Dave Boreen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were absolutely blown away by everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generosity. One individual stopped and wrote us a cheque for $3000.00, the local restaurant in Baynes Lake brought the volunteers pizzas and we had incredible support all day.â&#x20AC;? Since 2006, the Department has raised tens

of thousands of dollars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This fundraiser is a wonderful opportunity for our volunteers to get out in the community and raise funds for a really important cause. We

are so grateful for the support we receive each year.â&#x20AC;? The next fundraiser for the Departments will be the annual curling bonspiel, which is held each winter.

Peace of mind, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve earned it

Experiencing a loss can be difficult, and although insurance may relieve you of a ďŹ nancial burden, it cannot totally eliminate the stress and disruption that results from a loss to your personal belongings. Let Falkins Insurance Group give you peace of mind by ensuring you have the proper insurance for your garage, sheds and outbuildings. It's easy to forget the importance of these extra buildings until something happens to them. We believe you have the right to enjoy your lifestyle, not spend time worrying about it.

This program offers Kootenay residents a unique opportunity to gain a Bachelor of Education degree while remaining close to home. Following one year of pre-education course work at COTR, or other institutions, students apply to UVic to be accepted into the East Kootenay Teacher Education Program that is based at COTRโ€™s Cranbrook Campus. Students in the program acquire the knowledge, skills and practice to become elementary or middle school teachers (K-9). Once students complete the Teacher Education program they are eligible to apply for a teaching certiยฟcate in BC or other provinces and countries. A Bachelor of Education degree can lead to a wide variety of careers besides teaching. The advantages of taking a BEd degree at College of the Rockies are many. Students gain a rural teaching perspective and rural teaching is one of the fastest growing opportunities in education. They also receive face-to-face instruction in smaller classes. Many of the UVic faculty teaching in Cranbrook are practicing teachers and this allows students additional opportunities to work with local schools, teachers and children. In addition, students can choose to take practicums outside of the East Kootenay region and may choose international practicums in years two and three. Learn more how you can get your Bachelor of Education at two information sessions on Wednesday, September 26 at 4 p.m. or 6 p.m. in Room 206, College of the Rockies, Cranbrook Main Campus. For more information on the information sessions call Hugh at 250-489275 ext. 3329.

The Kootenay Literary Competition is looking for writers


Authors and COTR English instructors Angie Abdou and Bob Wakulich will be hosting Introduction to Creative Writing workshops as part of the Kootenay Literacy Competition. Submitted College of the Rockies is pleased to be one of the sponsors of the 2012 Kootenay Literary Competition, presented by the Nelson Writers Society and the Kootenay Literacy Competition Committee. This popular an-

nual writing event is open to all writers in the Kootenay region with categories for both adults and youth. Competition co-organizer Kristene Perron says, “This year’s theme for the adult competition is ‘revolution’. Writers should explore this theme in

one of three categories: Fiction, Creative Non-

Fiction or Poetry. Submissions should be no

longer than 3000 words or 40 lines for poetry. The entry fee is $25 for each submission.” The youth competition is broken into two categories. Grades seven to nine must use the words ‘riddle’, ‘domino’ and any form of the verb ‘to skulk’ somewhere in their work. Those in grades 10 to 12 must utilize the phrase ‘there was only one thing to do’ within their submission. The entry fee for youth is $10 per submission. Submission deadline is 5 p.m. (PST) on November 10, 2012. Winners in each category will be announced at the Kootenay Literacy Competition Awards Ceremony and Celebration on January 18. College of the Rockies will be hosting workshops in Cranbrook and Fernie to help writers prepare their competition submissions. Included will

be exercises and discussions about self-editing and peer-editing. The workshops will be held on Thursday, September 27 from 6:30 – 9:30 pm and will be led by two College of the Rockies English instructors, Bob Wakulich and Angie Abdou. The cost for the workshops is $20 for adults and free for youth 18 and under. Bob Wakulich has published ¿ction, non¿ction and poetry over the past thirty years in publications as diverse as Reader’s Digest and The Canadian Journal of Contemporary Literary Stuff. He also writes a column for the Cranbrook Daily Townsman. Bob’s workshop will be at the College of the Rockies Cranbrook Campus in room S114. Angie Abdou has published three books.

OBITUARY Madelyn Dorothy Desrosiers June 10, 1933 – September 1, 2012 Madelyn Desrosiers (nee Thompson) passed away peacefully at Joseph Creek Care Village in Cranbrook on Saturday, September 1, 2012. We her children are so proud and honoured to have had Madelyn as our mom. Madelyn will forever live in the hearts of her three children, Susan (Hank) Spence of Calgary, Mike (Liz) Desrosiers of Cranbrook and Murray (Sheri) Desrosiers of Calgary and six special grandchildren, Cody, Derek, Sage, Cole, Brooke and Jordan. Madelyn was predeceased by her husband of 51 years George in 2010. Madelyn was born in Chilliwack and was the youngest of five children. At an early age, Madelyn and her brother Robert moved to the Jaffray area where they lived with Mrs. Rosen. She is survived by her brother Donald of Nanaimo and was predeceased by her brothers Allan and Robert and her sister May. Madelyn found her forever home in Jaffray where she spent many fun times at Rosen Lake Resort. She enjoyed farm life and animals and while working on a farm she met George. She then moved to Cranbrook where she worked at a dress shop on main street. She enjoyed helping many ladies find that perfect dress. Once Madelyn had children, she focused all of her efforts on raising them. As a mother she always had a tasty treat in her oven for us! At the age of 29, Madelyn was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, a disease she would battle for the next 50 years. Despite all of the challenges that arthritis would present her, she always maintained a positive outlook on life and provided an excellent role model for many. Our family would like to kindly and respectfully thank Dr. Sarah Chesney, all of the nurses and care workers that compassionately cared for Madelyn at the Lakit Neighbourhood in Joseph Creek Care Village as well as the many friends who made her time there a true joy and who brought a twinkle to her eyes. When tomorrow starts without me Don’t think we’re far apart For every time you think of me I’m right there in your heart. At Madelyn’s request, a memorial service will not be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in her honour can be made to the Arthritis Society ( or 1-800321-1433). Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family may be offered at:
