Golf society demands answers By Alan S. Hale The Northern View The Prince Rupert Golf Society is frustrated that they were not consulted before council put forward the idea of selling the Prince Rupert Golf Course to private interests. “We’re a little disappointed that the mayor or council wouldn’t have approached the executive of the golf club...That they were looking at the possibility of selling it,” Terry Sawka, golf society president, said. The idea however, was not a formal proposal. Council neither made a motion nor proposed further action such as a staff report or feasibility study on the idea first put forward by Mayor Jack Mussallem.

However, Sawka isn’t convinced the mayor would just propose to sell a public amenity such as the golf course without discussing it beforehand. “I would suspect that there has been some discussions, maybe in a closed council meeting” said Sawka. The golf society has decided to press the issue and has made arrangements to appear before council at the October 9 meeting, and ask councillors to better explain what their intentions toward the golf course are. The members of the society – which is in charge of running the golf course for the City – met last Monday to discuss the issue and met again this Monday to come up a formal position on the potential sale of the course.

Prince Rupert may be able to lace up the skates again soon. Inoperative icemaking equipment at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre has relegated hockey players to dryland training and skaters in general to a trek down the highway to Terrace for the closest possible ice. Last weekend, 150 minor hockey league players made that journey and hockey parents said with gas and food they were spending $100 every weekend so their kids can play on actual ice – $100 they point out that isn’t being spent here in Prince Rupert. However, civic centre staff are looking at a temporary fix by the contractor hired to repair the system to will keep it running until the broken equipment can be replaced. If a temporary fix doesn’t work, iceusers will still have to wait until some time in November before they can use the local rink. See rink, page 3 Funded in part by:

The Northern Gateway Project is generating healthy debate. British Columbians are asking many important questions like, is this pipeline worth it for BC and its northern communities? The benefits that the Northern Gateway Project will bring to British Columbia are significant. It will create jobs, generate new tax revenue for BC, and strengthen the province’s economy.

New jobs will be created... Many people will be employed to build this project. Here in BC, over 3,000 high-paying construction jobs will be created during the building phase. And over 500 new long-term jobs will open up when it’s completed–jobs to monitor and maintain the pipeline, jobs at the Kitimat Marine Terminal, and indirect jobs in areas such as food and hospitality, accommodations, and transportation. And all right here in BC.

Over $800 million will be spent on local goods and services... During construction, hundreds of millions will be spent in Northern BC on equipment rentals, worker accommodations, trucking and fuel, just to name a few. Businesses will grow and new jobs will bring a steady source of family income, as well as opportunities for young people right out of school. All of this will have a positive impact on local businesses and community stability.

Local communities will have a brighter future... On top of new jobs being created, the project will generate $40 million per year in new tax revenue for BC–that’s $1.2 billion over a period of 30 years. This will make a difference to local communities who can use it to build facilities and strengthen public services.

Enbridge will also provide an additional $100 million to support communities near the pipeline in BC and Alberta. We are also committed to partnerships with Aboriginal communities–funding will be provided for community investment, scholarships and education programs, and Aboriginal business opportunities will be created.

People will learn specialized work skills... Individuals from towns near the pipeline will be given the opportunity to learn the skills needed to work in the energy industry. Enbridge has created the Gateway Education and Training Fund, a $1.5 million commitment that will support training initiatives that focus on pipeline construction skills. The knowledge and experience acquired during the construction phase will serve them well as the demand for skilled workers in the energy sector here in British Columbia, Canada and around the world continues to increase.

New global markets will open opportunities for new growth... As it stands, Canada relies on just one customer for its oil exports. The Northern Gateway Project will provide access to the growing economies and the huge markets of the Pacific Rim eager for our energy, which will increase Canada’s Gross Domestic Product by at least $270 billion over 30 years. So not only will the residents of British Columbia see an increase in tax revenue, employment and long-term job opportunities, they will see the economy strengthened in both their province and country as a new gateway to more trade partners opens up.

The project will bring significant economic benefits to BC. Discover more and join the conversation at

Skating rink could have ice again in a week Continued from page 1 An ammonia leak in the chiller portion of the ice-making equipment is suspected to be the cause, but so far the leak has not been visually inspected. There are hundreds of ammonia pipes located inside larger pipes filled with saltwater [brine]. The only way to reach these pipes is to take the machine apart; an expensive and time-consuming proposition. Staff know the leak is there because the water from Prince Rupert’s chiller has high levels of ammonia in it. “Ammonia is absorbed by water, but when the brine is saturated with it, then you have problems,” said Kevin Brown, a mechanic from BC Coastal Refrigeration Limited. Last weekend, Brown

started taking the equipment apart hoping to diagnose the extent of the leak and whether a temporary fix is possible. “It’s an enclosed vessel, so it’s impossible to tell the conditions of the pipes without doing a tear-down all the time, which isn’t done...That would be a lot of money that would be wasted if you did it all the time,” Brown said. The ammonia pipes inside the chiller were exposed on Monday and Brown began to pump them full of nitrogen – a safer option than ammonia —and look for the holes where the gas may be escaping. The hope is that the leak will be localized to only a few of the pipes, which could simply be plugged. “We’ll see how many tubes are damaged and then make an assessment from that point if it’s worth plugging a few pipes, or if it’s multiple pipes, then we’ll have to condemn

it,” he said. If Brown can manage to get the machine working again it would only be a temporary solution, and would not change the fact that the chiller needs to be replaced. But it would also mean the skating rink would be able to re-open in approximately seven to 10 days. Opening up the machine could be a costly gamble, however, if Brown finds that the machine can’t be patched or the fix doesn’t work. Brown says that if more than 10 to 20 per cent of the many, many ammonia pipes inside the chiller have holes, it can’t be saved. But it’s a chance the City is willing to take in order to get the rink operating again sooner. Kelly says that he is hoping that if the cooler can be repaired, replacing it could be left until next spring instead of shutting

Coastal First Nations ban bear hunting in its territory By Martina Perry The Northern View Ten First Nations groups on the province’s north and central coast have declared a ban on bear hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest, with the provincial government stating their disappointment with the unilateral ban. “Despite years of effort by the Coastal First Nations to find a resolution to this issue with the province, this senseless and brutal trophy hunt continues,” said Kitasoo/Xaixais First Nation Chief Doug Neasloss. The Coastal First Nations - the group imposing the ban - are against people hunting both grizzly bears and black bears for reasons other than for subsistence or out of selfdefence. The coalition of First Nations have a number of issues with the hunt, including the fact that hunters tend to go after larger, potentially genetically-superior bears which could weaken future breeding; unknowingly harvesting black bears that have the recessive gene responsible for the Kermode or Spirit bear; and the loss of tourism opportunities. Above all, the group is opposed

to killing animals that are not to be used for food. “It’s not a part of our culture to kill an animal for sport and hang them on a wall,” Jessie Housty, a councillor with the Heiltsuk Nation, said. He alleges that hunters often gun down bears while they are near shoreline foraging for food. Currently 58 per cent of traditional territories of the Coastal First Nations are closed to grizzly bear hunting, but the province does allow 300 grizzlies to be hunted throughout B.C. every year. In an attempt to protect the black bear population that carries the recessive Kermode gene, the province has already banned black bear hunting in 122,000 hectares in the Great Bear Rainforest and also made it illegal to hunt Kermode bears. The province will give out 32 permits for hunting grizzly bears inside the Coastal First Nations’ territory this fall, and based on past experience the government is expecting only one or two bears to actually be killed. However, William Housty, chair of the Heiltsuk Integrated Resource Management Department board of directors in Bella Bella, said that the Coastal First Nations don’t care about the numbers and that even one

bear being taken as a trophy goes against the values, beliefs and customs of the Coastal First Nations. “Coastal First Nations will enforce the ban by continuing to have presence on their traditional territories, by continuing to pressure the government to live up to signed agreements, and by continuing to walk the same shores, beaches and estuaries that the people of the Coastal First Nations have walked for thousands of years,” William Housty said. “This fight will continue Lisa Letnes photo until all agreements are The aboriginal federation argue that killing black bears puts the Kermode met, and until the Coastal bear population at risk since it’s impossible to tell if a bear carries the gene First Nations have a say in that causes the unique white spirit bears. the management of their territories, particularly the The Ministry of Forests, Lands Thomson. management of bears.

Board should have gotten a heads-up... There can be no question that volunteers play a major role in the quality of life in Prince Rupert. Without volunteers there would be no Seafest or Winterfest, no Hallowe’en Festival, no Udder Theatre Festival, no planters or community clean-ups and much of the downtown that was revitalized during last year’s Paint Prince Rupert program would still look worn down instead of spruced up. Being a volunteer can often be a thankless job. Obviously there is no pay, and the praise for a job well done can sometime be minimal while the “could have or should have” comments are plentiful. That is one of the reasons that anyone who benefits from the work of a volunteer group needs to be respectful of the people, their efforts and the hours of their time that they give toward the cause. And if you enjoy the events or activities of a volunteer group in the community, make sure you let them know. What sent me off on this little diatribe actually has to do with the golf course. Last week I praised the City for taking a step in the right direction in terms of lowering costs and thus saving taxpayers money. I still think that council should be acknowledged for looking at the different options they are looking at, but the way they went about raising the issue of the golf course sale was questionable at best. If anyone on council - particularly mayor Mussallem who brought the idea forward at the meeting - had the idea of selling the golf course, their first step should have been to talk to the volunteer executive that has been overseeing the operations at the golf course. You may not get any feedback from the board, you may

not want any feedback from them, but common courtesy would dictate that the people who give their time and effort year-after-year to run the course should be made aware that this idea is going to be brought up so they’re not blind-sided by it or hear about it second hand. For comparative purposes, if you were a long-time tenant of a rental property in town you would expect the courtesy of a heads-up should the owner decide he/she is going to sell the property. It sure beats coming home one day and seeing a

“for sale” sign posted on the building you’ve called home for the past decade or so. Again, it’s not a requirement for the landlord to alert you to the possible sale before listing the property, much like the City isn’t required to give the board a heads up before looking at selling the golf course. But the volunteers who have played such a role in the success of the course should have been paid the respect of a briefing before council went public with the potential sale.

Old time religion and a few early Prince Rupert churches There are a number of things that make Rupert unique even in the north, but one of them is our historical architecture. Our visitors often comment on it, and often want to learn more about the history of these iconic buildings. Old churches are an important part of the Prince Rupert skyline. I doubt it would be possible to count the number of tourist photos that show the Sunken Garden in the foreground, with the Presbyterian Church on the hill behind. The Anglican Cathedral, with its magnificent stained glass, towers above the downtown. The first church service held in the new city was an Anglican service conducted in a tent by Canon Rushbrook in November 1906. The Anglican congregation followed this by building a hall in which to conduct services, the first real church building in the city, and then gradually built the cathedral on Fourth Avenue West between 1912 and

1925. the restricted district of Comox The Carpenter Gothic- Talking tourism Avenue particularly received style Presbyterian church their attention.” that features so prominently In turn, some of the in tourist photos was erected early religious figures offer in 1925 by Mitchell & fascinating glimpses of early Currie for a congregation Prince Rupert.

The streets and side-walks are all high in the air, on stilts quite like bridges with timbers and plank surface. This is also true of some houses. I have seen some of them standing twenty-five feet in the air on timbers to bring the houses up to street level.” Nor, it seems, was Prince Rupert particularly impressed with J.J. Rouse. “Morally,” he wrote, “Prince Rupert, like all northern coast towns, was reeking with iniquity.” He would no doubt be bewildered by the community of today, with its diverse selection of places of worship.

Cyclist gives Rupert high marks Editor: I appreciate Ken Cote’s comments about cycling in Prince Rupert, (The Northern View Aug. 22). I agree with Ken, that getting more cyclists on the road here is of great importance. I beg to differ, on the other hand, with his characterization of Rupert as not cyclist friendly. I have cycled in Vancouver, and Montreal extensively, and in comparison, I give Prince Rupert drivers high marks for safety, and courtesy As a citizen, I have gone before city council with a proposal for bike lanes, but I was turned down, with the argument that they don’t have the funds and there isn’t enough demand from cyclists for bike lanes or paths. Unfortunately, one of the reasons that there aren’t more cyclists is exactly Ken’s point - without bike lanes, it’s too scary for a lot of adult riders who are taking cycling up after a long hiatus. This creates a kind of catch-twentytwo - as long as we don’t have bike lanes, there won’t be more cyclists, so there won’t be a demand for bike lanes. Problem solved, as far as the city is concerned. Need I point out that this is short-sighted thinking on the part of city council? The trend in the rest of the world, and in places like Vancouver and Montreal is to actively encourage cycling, and it has worked, bringing more cyclists on the road, decreasing the number of cars and increasing the

safety of cyclists. Why cater to cyclists you might ask? Because it makes for a more attractive and a more livable city. Because it’s good for people’s health. And because it encourages people to drive cars less. Prince Rupert is the perfect size for cycling to work and to school. In the mean time I encourage citizens to think ahead to the future health of our children. Why not encourage our kids to ride or walk to school? Instead of driving them back and forth, why not accompany them by walking or biking. In order to maintain good health, it makes sense to create good habits of physical fitness from the time we are young. Otherwise all we are doing is training them to be couch potatoes when they growup. And one more thing - Why doesn’t the local bike shop sell electric bikes? It makes it a lot easier to get up hills if you are out-of-shape. Terrace and Smithers have bike shops that feature e-bikes, Why doesn’t Rupert? There is a lot that we could do to get more people on bikes in Prince Rupert, with or without the help of the city. I invite anybody who is interested in encouraging more cyclists in Prince Rupert to contact me, Charles Justice. The more people that are involved the more likely it will make a difference.

Around 60 volunteers picked up approximately 350 to 400 pounds of waste in and around Hays Creek on Saturday, September 15 as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup event held in Prince Rupert. The local branch of the World Wildlife Fund has put on the event in Prince Rupert for over half a decade, with Mike Ambach and Lisa Doolan being this year’s main organizers. The most common items found were plastic bags, food wrappers and cigarette butts. Some unusual items found included a hamster cage, a car battery, a couple of bicycles and some fishing gear. New individuals, groups and families took part, as well as many returning volunteers. The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup started back in 1994 by a group of staff and volunteers from the Vancouver Aquarium, and is held in various communities across the country. Marina Perry photos

Top: Tatiana Dawson (left) and Aaliyah Mahboubi are both nine-years-old and have been taking part in the clean-up for at least three years.

Skateboarders put their tricks on display in Game of SKATE By Alan S. Hale The Northern View Loaded Sports was able to finish the their competitive game of S.K.A.T.E. on Sunday at the Prince Rupert skate park after it was rained out last weekend, and about 25 skateboarders came out to see who would come out on top. A game of S.K.A.T.E. is where two skateboarders compete in a head-to-head competition, where one skateboarder does a trick that their opponent must copy. If the opponent can’t replicate the trick they are given a letter from the word “skate” if they get all the letters. The two skateboarders take turns choosing the trick and replicating it until someone gets all of their letters first. It makes for an interesting game of oneupmanship where the two skateboarders will

try to find weaknesses in each other’s skills. The spectators volunteer to act as judges and determine if a trick was completed properly or not. After a few hours, the winners emerged. 15 and under 1st: Cameron Culver 2nd: Trevor Franzen 3rd: Dylan McKenzie Open 1st: Tanner Tsuji 2nd: Billy Demings 3rd: Tyler McRae The winners went home with armfuls of “swag” donated just for the event by different popular skateboarding clothing and gear brands.

The Prince Rupert Regional Hospital needs a new CT scanner now that its current one has broken down, and is too expensive to bother repairing. Patients in need of a CT scan now have to use the nearest functioning machine, which is in Terrace. It’s not known how long the hospital will be without its own scanner, the hospital has only just started sorting out the “logistics� of acquiring a new one that could cost anywhere between

$350,000 to $1 million. “We just hate not having this service, but it’s going to take a bit of leg work and brainstorming to figure out how to put in a new one in a timely fashion. It’s not something that we’re going to be able to turnaround in a week,� Loretta Robinson, medical imaging manager, said. Robinson said there were mechanical failures in the tech station and the scanner’s main CPU and both need to be replaced. The cost of making those repairs on a machine that is more than eight years old wasn’t worth it, forcing the hospital to make the decision to replace the entire CT machine.

Terrion returns for 2012 Terry Fox Run By Alan S. Hale The Northern View

Alan S. Hale photo

Jim Terrion and his mother, Faye, prepare for the 31st Terry Fox Run on Sunday at the Northern Savings Credit Union. Terrion has raised more than $550,000 for cancer research. His mother, Faye Terrion, explained that her son goes canvassing door–to-door in different communities to raise the several thousand dollars he brings back for cancer research. “He decided he was going

to help Terry Fox, because that was his hero and he started in 1991 and he started here...He was 31 then and he has done that ever since,” Faye said. Participants chose to run one of two routes throughout the city.

When they arrived back at the finish line at the Northern Savings Credit Union, there were snacks, door prizes and hot dogs being served by members of the Prince Rupert Rampage hockey team.

Outgoing North Coast MLA Gary Coons keeps pace during the 2012 Terry Fox Run on Sunday in Prince Rupert.

Terry Fox’s run across Canada may have ended 31 years ago, but his Marathon of Hope continues. Nearly 120 people continued his fight against cancer on Sunday, lining up at the Northern Savings Credit Union to begin Prince Rupert’s annual Terry Fox Run. The 2012 Prince Rupert Terry Fox Run to date raised $29,700.05; approximately 90 per cent of which by just one man: Jim Terrion. Terrion was living in Prince Rupert when Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope and it inspired him to be a part of the Terry Fox Run in Prince Rupert every year for two decades. In the past 21 years, he has raised more than half-amillion dollars for the Prince Rupert Terry Fox Run. Terrion, who is deaf and only communicates by sign language, moved to Prince George in 2006 but still comes back each year to take part in Prince Rupert’s event.

He already has a supplier that will provide them at a discount, The walkathon took place from September 7-9, but MacDonald says he still hasn’t finished fundraising and hasn’t counted up all the donations yet.
