Gas line to Rupert newest plan to surface By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - After BG Group expressed interest in creating a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Prince Rupert earlier this year, another big-name in the LNG industry has committed interest to creating a new natural gas transportation system that would serve the terminal. If the project went through the transportation system would begin in northeast B.C. and would end at BG Group’s potential LNG export facility in Prince Rupert. The transportation system would be approximately 850-kilometres and would be capable of transporting up to 4.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. The Spectra Energy Corporation and BG Group have signed a Project Development Agreement to develop plans together, with

both companies agreeing to have equal ownership interest in the project. Spectra Energy would be responsible of constructing and operating the transportation system, and BG Group has agreed to contract for all of the proposed capacity. “We have been working with BG Group in development of this project for the better part of a year. We’ve got to know them quite well and see them as a very major player that intends to make a very major difference in the LNG market,” said Doug Bloom, president of Spectra Energy Transmission West in an exclusive interview with the Prince Rupert Northern View. David Byford, spokesman of BG Group in Texas, says that the project is still in the feasibility phase, although they have narrowed their focus to a site on Ridley Island in Prince Rupert. “We believe [Ridley Island] is an ideal

site for a potential LNG facility. It benefits from road and rail access as well as a coastal location and proximity to existing Asia-Pacific markets,” Byford told the Prince Rupert Northern View. In its announcement, Spectra is assuring that the proposed natural gas line will include not only current standards but also state-ofthe-art safety measures. “We’re very familiar with the technology and terrain in British Columbia. This pipeline we’re designing will use all the latest materials and most current and advance construction techniques. We think it will be very safe and reliable for decades to come,” Bloom assured. Bloom also believes that communities along the proposed route, and the provincial government will better receive the project than Enbridge’s Northern Gateway oil pipeline.

Cash, land and self gov’t on table for two First Nations By Staff Writer THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - The Kitsumkalum First Nation stands to receive more than $40 million and the Kitselas First Nation more than $30 million and each will receive thousands of hectares around Terrace, according to documents released Sept. 10. The documents take the form of a draft or preliminary agreement in principle for each First Nation and will, if approved, pave the way to negotiations for final treaty settlements. Each First Nation will also receive substantial self-governing powers over lands and resources and services such as health care and education. “This will be a huge benefit to the City of Terrace and to the region,” said Gerald Wesley, the chief treaty negotiator for the Kitsumkalum and Kitselas, of the certainty for economic and social development that will come from final settlements. He encouraged residents of the area to read and understand details of the two draft agreements. Final treaty agreements for the Kitselas and Kitsumkalum would, when taken together with the Nisga’a treaty of 2000, provide certainty for economic development on a level not seen elsewhere in the province. The lack of land ownership clarity in B.C. stemming from unresolved aboriginal rights and title has long been regarded as a hindrance to investors. But much work still needs to be done leading to final agreements, cautioned Wesley and oth-

ers involved in negotiations which so far have taken 15 years of actual talks. The draft agreements in principle released this week will now be reviewed by government officials before being initialed as complete. Members of the two First Nations must then approve of the agreements in community votes to be held next February. If passed by Kitsumkalum on Feb. 23, 2013 and Kitselas on Feb. 24, 2013, the agreements will then be approved by the federal and provincial governments, enabling negotiators to start on final agreements. A rejection by one First Nation of its agreement in principle does not affect the agreement of the other if it is approved. Kitsumkalum and Kitselas members will again be asked to approve of final agreements in separate votes and the agreements must receive legislative consent by B.C. and Canada. Wesley said it could be three to five years yet before final settlements are concluded once agreements in principle are approved. “We can always hope it’s less than that, but it’s probably two years at a bare minimum,” he said. And although the draft agreements in principle contain the essential elements of final agreements, there still might be changes as negotiations proceed. The land, 45,406.3 hectares or 454 square miles for Kitsumkalum and 36,158.7 hectares or 362 square miles for Kitselas, comes from the provincial Crown and does not involve private land holdings.

Voting details

Under treaty negotiations principles in BC, the province is responsible for land and resource elements while the federal government provides the cash which works out to $44.2 million for Kitsumkalum and $34.7 million for Kitselas These are called capital transfers and the money won’t replace that which already flows to the Kitselas and Kit-

sumkalum for health and education and other services. The negotiations have so far cost the Kitsumkalum and Kitselas nearly $5 million. It’s money borrowed from the federal government and will be repaid from the cash portion of final agreement provisions. These negotiations have been unlike others in B.C. because they involve two neighouring

communities, essentially resulting in two agreements for the price of one. Wesley said it made sense for Kitsumkalum and Kitselas to combine efforts for better efficiency and to better share resources. The negotiations diverged when specific Kitselas and Kitsumkalum interests needed to be addressed. “Eventually there

will be a treaty for each individual First Nation,” said Wesley. Wesley said he will be voting in favour of

the agreement in principle for his home First Nation of Kitsumkalum and will be urging others to vote ‘yes’ as well.

TERRACE - The voting by the Kitsumkalum and Kitselas First Nations to approve agreements in principle will take place among those who are over the age of 18. A simple majority – 50 per cent plus one – is needed for the respective agreements in principle to pass. Kitsumkalum has 708 registered members (239 living on-reserve) and Kitselas has 584 registered members (273 living on-reserve). Provided the agreements in principle are passed by the two First Nations and negotiations then proceed to final agreements (which also need to be approved by First Nations voters), members will continue to be status Indians for the purposes of programs and services, such as health and education, except in regards to the taxation as explained above. Anyone of Kitsumkalum/Kitselas ancestry will be eligible for treaty benefits and services that have been negotiated.

Gas line wanted …

... cooking, living, giving Just back from Toronto and Edmonton Gift show New and exciting items arriving daily

By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - Enough councillors had cold feet over a motion by Phil Germuth to table it, but the question of getting waterfront land from Rio Tinto Alcan (RTA) will still be asked in the coming weeks. Germuth put forward a motion that would have had the District of Kitimat asking RTA to donate “Alcan Beach and the Alcan Boat Launch to the District...as part of Kitimat’s 60th anniversary celebrations.” “This has been Kitimat’s only no-cost public boat launch. It is the only sizeable sandy beach on the north end of the Douglas Channel,” Germuth told the council. With the proposed developments for the west side of the channel he said acquiring the land is important to preserve the area for the public’s benefit, and would not negatively impact the modernization project. He also added that there would be little financial impact because the land is already developed. The proposal, he thought, would be win-win for both sides. Councillor Mary Murphy had a different idea, and suggested that as the District is in the middle of relationship building with RTA, it would be best to approach RTA directly through a series of meetings already scheduled between the two sides with this idea. Rob Goffinet was also not prepared to move ahead on the motion. While not opposed to the idea, he didn’t want council to get locked into what could be perceived as a demand from RTA. Murphy added after Goffinet that there are other areas they may want to discuss with RTA and she doesn’t want to lock discussion to the Hospital Beach land. Corrine Scott stood by Germuth, emphasizing the motion was simply a request.

City of Prince Rupert considering selling the golf course By Alan S. Hale THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Prince Rupert City Council will be looking into the possibility of selling the Prince Rupert Golf Course back into private ownership. The idea was proposed by Mayor Jack Mussallem during Monday’s council meeting not only as a way to save taxpayers’ money, but also to help pay for land for a new emergency services building. “We own the land there. If we can get money for the land and the improvements and get it on the tax roll, we can take that money and use it for the development of an emergency services building. Because in all likelihood we’re going to have to buy some land, and this will make it easier on the tax payers,” says Mussallem. The city had examined the option of using the municipal tennis courts and Moose Tot Lot properties as a location for the new emergency

buildings because it owns them, but that was met with a public backlash to the idea. Regulations allow for money from the sale of City land to be used to purchase new property. Mussallem’s believes that the sale of the golf course could possibly pay for a new location for the RCMP building, which has a government deadline looming. The fire hall would be left to be funded by money approved in a borrowing bylaw referendum. The golf course is one of the “Big Six”; which are all large cityowned properties that are permanently exempt from paying property taxes. Other members of the Big Six include the library, the Digby Ferry docks and the museum. If the golf course could be sold back into the private sector, it could be put back on the roll and it would make the City an extra $22,000 a year. The City would also no longer be responsible for paying the golf course staff whose salary are

in excess of $75,000 a year, or buying new equipment, which has cost $40,000 this year. “Golf is a popular game. If someone took it over and made it into a business it would reduce our annual subsidy, in fact, it would eradicate it. Further, if someone took it over, they could inject some cash into it, improve it and attract even more people here,” said Mussallem. The mayor also said that his suggestion was not a criticism of the Prince Rupert Golf Society, which runs the golf course for the city, but is a matter of practicality. Councilors seemed quite open to examining the idea, but no motion was taken on the idea, so when, or if, the council will discuss it is unknown. FILE / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

HIV is a real concern within our communities. You can contract HIV primarily through unprotected sex and by sharing needles. HIV can live in your body for years without you knowing and all the while you can be passing it to others. At least 25 per cent of people who are HIV+ do not know and these 25 per cent are estimated to be responsible for 75 per cent of new infections. Northern Health, in collaboration with its community partners, is working with the Province of BC to prevent the spread of HIV by expanding HIV testing, treatment, and support services to British Columbians.

Port Authority CEO comments on five years of Fairview By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - On September 12, 2007, Prince Rupert Port Authority president and CEO Don Krusel stood on stage before an appreciative crowd of Prince Rupert residents and spoke of what the new container terminal meant to people in the community and in the region. Five years later, Krusel said the excitement of cutting the ribbon was shared with a bit of concern about how the terminal would perform. “We certainly had a lot of hope and desire to see the port grow as a container port, but there was also a lot of anxiety being felt as the terminal opened. I recall there were a lot of skeptics who didn’t believe Prince Rupert could be a viable container port to access the Asia-Pacific... And just as the ribbon was being cut the global economy was falling and container volumes along the west coast of North America were declining, so it was a volatile time to be opening a new terminal,” he said. “Looking back, it is quite a remarkable feat because we have not only convinced the skeptics that the business model we proposed 10 years ago works, we’ve defied the probability by becoming the fastest growing container terminal in North America... This year, 2012, we will exceed the original design capacity and will ship more than 500,000 TEUs, so it truly is remarkable.” As well as coming at a time when the global economy was experiencing difficulties, it was also a time when the local economy was seeking an identity. The pulp mill had closed nine years ago, and other terminals in Prince Rupert had volume challenges of their own. “We quickly forget that Prince Rupert was on its knees economically until the opening. I speak of the anxiety I felt about the opening, but I think it is fair to say that the community as a whole was anxious about the future of Prince Rupert,” said Krusel. “Fairview Terminal has been a real game changer for Prince Rupert...Our own economic impact study shows that 900 new jobs have been created across northern BC as a result of the terminal operations, and

a large portion of those jobs is in Prince Rupert. I think it is safe to say that Fairview Terminal brought back some economic certainty to the community.” Along with the jobs related to Fairview Terminal and containerization, Krusel notes that the success of Fairview Terminal has really opened the eyes of the shipping industry to what Prince Rupert can offer in terms of access to Asia. “Before Fairview Terminal opened, the port of Prince Rupert was not well known internationally. Even when we were promoting Prince Rupert as a container terminal, we would have to go to the shelf and get an atlas to show people where it was. We don’t have to worry about that anymore,” he said, pointing to the recent Federal Maritime Commission report as proof of Prince Rupert’s importance in trade. “As commercial trade and bulk good movement grows, Prince Rupert plays a dominant role and that is what draws LNG proposals, expanded coal capacity and a number of other bulk shippers to look at Prince Rupert as a solution to trade and transportation.” No one entity, however, can claim responsibility for the success of Fairview Terminal. Krusel said the worldclass facility operated by Maher Terminals and the reliable movement of goods by CN need to be acknowledged, as do the people on the ground working the ships that come in. “I can’t speak highly enough of the men and women at the terminal. One of the great success stories of Prince Rupert is the productivity of the people that has given us one of the highest productivity rates in North America. Sure some of that has to do with the equipment, but a lot of it has to do with the commitment of the workforce,” he said. “Our success is tied directly to the loyalty and dedication of the workforce.” And while there have been a lot of memorable milestones in the life of Fairview Terminal, Krusel said his most memorable moment has to do with the first ship to call on Prince Rupert, the COSCO ANTWERP. “My most memorable moment was standing on the bridge of the

ship and watching containers being offloaded and the business of the terminal,” he said. “Before that I had stood on terminals around the world in cities like Hong Kong and Los Angeles and Seattle, and I had to pinch myself and realize this wasn’t a big city like Hong Kong or LA – it was the little city of Prince Rupert where this was happening.” With five years at the terminal now in the past, Krusel anticipates even more success going forward. “We are in the final stages of working with

Maher Terminals on the commencement of construction that would take Fairview Terminal to a 1.2 million to 1.3 million TEU capacity...There is no indication that the growth in the next five years will be interrupted, and the challenge now is to manage that growth,” he said. “The success of the past five years has set the stage for dramatic expansion of volume through Prince Rupert for other commodities. I see an exciting future for Fairview Terminal, but I see an even more exciting future for the port of Prince Rupert.”

Minister to probe method of how jobless are counted By Staff Writer THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Jobs minister Pat Bell has repeated a commitment to find out why the jobless rate for the northwest remains in the double digits despite major projects now underway or about to start. Speaking Sept. 7, Bell said August’s posted jobless rate of 11.8 per cent seems at odds with anecdotal evidence he’s heard – and seen – about activity in the area. “We know the opportunities for the TerraceKitimat area are significant,” said Bell, adding he expects the jobless number to shrink in the coming months. Bell said he’s directed his officials to speak with officials from Statistics Canada, the federal agency that compiles the figures, to probe what he termed “anomalies” with the numbers. Bell made similar comments last month when the July double-digit numbers came out. He said the problem may rest with how people who are coming from other areas to work on projects here are counted. Still, Bell held the line at conducting audits of companies to determine where their employees actually live. Statistics Canada’s reported jobless rate of 11.8 per cent is virtually unchanged from July’s 11.9 per cent and June’s 12.2 per cent for the area running from the north coast to just west of Vanderhoof. The number of people working has also dropped – to 38,100 in August compared to 38,400 in July at a time when major economic projects are either underway or about to start up. Last August the jobless rate was 8.7 per cent and there were 44,900 people working. The northwest was the only region in the province in August to have a jobless rate in the double digits. If Bell was questioning the northwest jobless numbers and going to have his officials look into the rate and how the numbers are calculated, he was more comfortable with talking about other regions in BC and the overall provincial picture. “It’s a very good month for jobs in BC,” said Bell in citing figures indicating the province has gained 51,700 jobs in the last year. “We’re No. 1 in all of Canada,” he said. Alberta ranks second and Quebec third in job cre-

ation, Bell continued. The provincial jobless rate was 6.8 per cent while it was 6.1 per cent on Vancouver Island, 7 per cent in the lower mainland, 4.7 per cent in the ThompsonOkanagan, 7.8 per cent in the Kootenays, 8.6 per cent in the Cariboo and

4.8 per cent in the energyrich northeast. The Sept. 7 release of jobless figures follows a provincial cabinet shuffle in Victoria this week in which Premier Christy Clark handed responsibility for skills training to Bell. Bell, who is also in

charge of tourism and who was also handed the labour portfolio in the shuffle, has spoken before of the need to increase the training and educational level of northwestern residents to better their chances of finding work. The figures released Sept.

7 are not those of people collecting Employment Insurance. They’re the product of Statistics Canada employees interviewing people over the age of 15 and those considering themselves part of the workforce are people with a

job or who are looking for work. People withdraw from the workforce for any number of reasons, and not all of those reasons are associated with having employment or not. The region has never quite recovered from the

collapse of the forestry industry in the late 1990s which resulted in the closure of pulp mills and sawmills. Loss of employment meant that people moved away to find work in other areas of the province or country.

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VICTORIA - The Ministry of Health has asked the RCMP to investigate allegations of inappropriate conduct, contracting and data-management practices involving ministry employees and drug researchers. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said today that the ministry has provided the RCMP with interim results of an internal investigation, which was supported by a lead investigator from the Office of the Chief Information Officer, Ministry of Citizens’ Services and Open Government. It examined contracting and research grant practices between ministry employees and researchers at the University of British Columbia and the University of Victoria. “We take all allegations of this nature very seriously,” she said. “I have instructed the ministry to continue to take whatever steps are necessary to respond to these matters thoroughly. We must ensure confidence is maintained in the integrity of the public service to execute its responsibilities in a manner that meets the high standards of conduct expected by the public.” The formal investigation, which commenced in May 2012, examined financial controls, contracting, data management and employee/contractor relationships, and produced evidence of potential conflict of interest, and inappropriate contract management and data access with external drug researchers. As an immediate response, the ministry took the following steps, pending the completion of an ongoing formal investigation into this matter: * Four employees have been terminated and three have been suspended without pay - and their access to ministry data and government assets has been frozen. * Two contractors had their contracts and data access suspended. * All ministry data sharing with drug and evidence development researchers has been temporarily suspended.

She moved to Terrace several years ago and started her own studio called “For the Love of Mud� where she taught and produced her highly sought ‘functional ware’! Mary then returned to Red Deer College and unfortunately was diagnosed with cancer in Oct.2011. She returned to Terrace to stay with her sister Sue while she received treatment but succumbed to the disease. A Celebration of Mary’s life was held at the home of Sue and Dean on Sat. Sept.1/12 amidst great friends and awesome weather. Mary will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

Northwest tackles the Ironman By Submitted THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PENTICTON - Two athletes from the Northwest competed at Ironman Canada (IMC) on August 26 in Penticton. The iconic triathlon event consists of a 3.8km swim in Okanagan Lake, then a 180km bike ride through the Okanagon, and finally a

42.2km marathon run along Skaha Lake to Okanagon Falls and back to Penticton. Fred Lambright, 42, from Terrace and Al Marleau, 53, from Kitimat competed at the 30th anniversary of IMC. Both athletes placed well. Lambright placed 256th overall with a time of 10:49:10 and Marleau 381st overall with a time of

11:12:55. Lambright had a phenomenal time of five hours and six minutes for the 180km bike portion of the Ironman, finishing with the 47th fastest time out of 2,700 competitors. Marleau also had a great time on the 42.2 marathon portion of the event with a time of three hours 42 minutes, finishing 123rd fastest out

of 2,700 competitors. This was the last Ironman Canada event to be held in Penticton. City council there decided this year not to buy the licensing rights from Ironman, as they have in years past. Instead, they opted to go with the Challenge Family Triathlon, home to a series of European events like the largest triathlon held in

Roth, Germany. So, next year the event will celebrate its 31st birthday under the new banner of Challenge Penticton. The Challenge Family holds about a dozen international events and the Penticton event will be the group’s first foray into North American events. The event will be held Aug. 25, 2013.

Motocross riders rep Terrace on the road By Anna Killen THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

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.

TERRACE - As the motocross season nears the finish line, with just one more weekend of racing this 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 sea-

son. 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-yearold Connor McCarron is ranked third in 50cc seven to eight-year-old class, for his first year racing.

Seabridge Gold is frequently asked what happens after it submits its Environmental Assessment (EA) application for the KSM Project this fall.

the review period. Under the CEAA review, the application is posted to its website and public comment periods are available.

First, it’s important to remember that the KSM Project is undergoing a joint federal and provincial environmental review, which is typical for major mining projects. While the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) and the BC Environmental Assessment Of¿ce (BC EAO) assess many similar areas, their legislative focus is different.

The EAO and CEAA will each complete a report documenting their respective ¿ndings from the application, including how project concerns have been addressed and whether there are any outstanding issues. Assessment reports are then posted on each of the websites. Seabridge is actively involved in these reviews, presenting aspects of the Project and answering questions from reviewers.

Screening period Under the joint review, Seabridge will submit one combined EA application to the BC EAO and the CEAA. The BC EAO and CEAA then conduct an initial screening to ensure the application is complete and that it addresses the information required in the Application Information Requirements (AIR) or terms of reference. Application reviews The application review period begins once the government agencies agree the application is complete and has all the necessary project information. The application includes a detailed project description, environmental baseline studies (soils, vegetation, water, wildlife, ¿sh, aquatics, climate, air and noise, archaeology and traditional use studies among others), as well as predicted impacts of the KSM Project on the environment (physical and social) and the actions Seabridge has taken to avoid, prevent or mitigate potential impacts. During this time, the BC EAO, CEAA, Provincial and Federal regulators, Treaty and First Nations and general public review the application. The BC EA review period is 180 days and includes 30 days for the general public to review the application and provide comments to the government. The application is on the BC EAO website during

Minister’s decision period The BC EAO and CEAA forward the assessment reports to their respective ministers, along with a recommendation from the EAO about whether or not to issue an EA certi¿cate. The EAO ministers have 45 days to make their decision. The CEAA Minister of the Environment makes a decision within a similar time period. Once a decision is made There’s a common misperception that once an EA certi¿cate is granted, a company can immediately begin building a mine. That’s not the case. The Environmental Assessment is a systematic analysis and evaluation of the impacts of a proposed project in terms of its environmental, economic and social sustainability. Once an EA certi¿cate is granted, a proponent then has to apply for the necessary permits, licenses and land-use approvals (federal and provincial) in order to build and operate the mine. Learn more about the KSM Project in person Seabridge will be holding community open houses in Smithers (September 11), Terrace (September 18) and Stewart (October 18) to share more information about the KSM Project.

Kitimat Modernization Project Building the future together

KMP must expand it’s reach for skilled tradespeople

The Kitimat Modernization Project is quickly ramping up to peak construction period and the local pool of skilled tradespeople is near capacity. KMP is working in coordination with participating unions to fill the need for skilled trades. Tradespeople are being recruited through union branches from across the province, the country, and the United States - in that order. Temporary construction workers from the northwest U.S. could be on the ground soon. With a project spend rate of over $3 million per day, we can’t delay. Visit www.KMPjobs.com for more information.
