GATEWAY perspectives

Building skills When we started talking to Aboriginal communities about the Northern Gateway Project, they told us, unequivocally, that they wanted meaningful, long-term involvement in the labour force. That’s why we established a $1.5-million Gateway Education and Training Fund — and it’s not dependent, in any way, upon Northern Gateway regulatory approval. This fund supports training initiatives based in the pipeline, construction, and energy sectors. It is not training for the sake of training; it is totally focused on employment outcomes. And along Northern Gateway right-ofway communities, Enbridge is already connecting industry and community to help create Aboriginal career opportunities. Catherine Pennington, Northern Gateway’s Supervisor of Community Education, Training, and Skills Development, reports that we’re already co-funding training programs for surveyors and ironworkers. We’re purchasing seats in existing Aboriginal trades programs, and partnering with provincial and federal bodies to help develop skilled tradespeople in the areas

of heavy equipment operation, pipefitting, welding, and construction craft labouring. We’ve also co-ordinated the first of many “workforce connections” workshops, bringing together representatives of Northern Gateway equity First Nations and companies with labour-force needs for some meaningful employment discussion. We’ve heard, loud and clear, from Aboriginal communities that they don’t want to be bypassed anymore by economic opportunities created within, near, or around them — and we’re doing something about it. The Gateway Education and Training Fund shows our commitment to community and workforce development. We want to be connected to the Aboriginal community and not just because it makes good business sense. It’s about partnership. It’s about responsibility. And, ultimately, it’s about respect.

◆ TRADES EDUCATION

Union says it has first right to apprenticeships Continued from Page 1 To make sure young people get that experience, Ridley Terminals wants to increase the number of apprenticeship opportunities in town, but they aren’t sure yet how they would do that. It’s up to individual businesses to decide how many apprentices they want to take on. For its part, Ridley says they will be increasing their number of apprentices. “We’re hoping that other companies will follow suit,” Michelle Bryant, Ridley Terminal’s director of Corporate Affairs, who has been working on the apprenticeship issue, said. There’s one big obstacle though: the collective agreement with their union. Under that agreement, all apprenticeships at Ridley Terminals must be offered to union members first, and only what is left over can be offered to young people off-site. According to the union’s president, there are so many union members who would want to retrain for a trades job that the young people

fresh out of school might never get a Ridley Terminals apprenticeship at all. “The only way I see [young people] getting on-site is if they offer an awful lot of apprenticeships and only a few of our members want them. I don’t think they’re going to do that because George [Dorsey] doesn’t want to lose too many of his [equipment] operators,” said Vandermeer. Bryant said that the company wants to negotiate an agreement with the union that would allow them to get around that rule. “We’re definitely trying to work with them to open doors for opportunities, but until there’s something written into the collective agreement or a memorandum of understanding we’re a little bit stuck,” she said. For the moment Ridley is setting its sights on local trades training instead. The company is hoping to get other local industries to sit down for a roundtable discussion next month to figure out how many

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.

◆ ICELESS ARENA

Chiller to be repaired shortly By Alan S. Hale The Northern View The City’s attempt at a quick fix of the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre’s broken ice chiller appears to have paid off. If everything goes the way they hope it will, the ice-making equipment could be in working order again on Wednesday. But only then will a decision be made about when a new sheet of ice will be made. Workers located the leaking ammonia pipes that are causing the problems early last week and patched the leaks. It didn’t stop there though. The equipment was worked on all week, the ammonia pipes had to be pressure tested several times for leaks, and a new compressor machine was installed. By Monday of this week, the man in charge of all the repairs, Kevin Brown from North Coast Refrigeration, said that everything was going well, but there was a long list of things that needed to be done before the equipment would be ready to start making ice again. “[On Monday] I’ll put some ammonia back in and refrigerate the tubes to make them contract to see if any other leaks open up and if that holds we’ll continue from there,” says Brown. If the pipes make it through that final test, then it will still take Brown and his team two whole days to mix and replace the saltwater brine that the ammonia tubes are submerged in. Only after the equipment is put back together will the civic centre decide when to try to create a sheet of ice on the rink. But still, the repair means that Prince Rupert will likely get its skating rink

back over a month ahead of schedule. The patch job on the chiller is expected to end up costing $10,000 – $15,000 on its own, but it appears it won’t be the City who will be footing the bill. According the City’s director of Recreation, Rudy Kelly, and the Prince Rupert Minor Hockey association has offered to pay for the repair. “They haven’t given us any money yet, but they basically said ‘hey, do what you have to do,’” says Kelly. About 150 minor hockey players and their parents have been forced to travel down the highway to Terrace every weekend to play on the ice there. When the kids have used the rink at home, it’s been for dry ground practice. The repairs don’t change the fact that the chiller needs to be replaced as soon as possible though and a new one has been ordered and will arrive in early November. Kelly’s original hope was that the repairs would allow the chiller to be used until after this year’s hockey season is over. Kevin Brown from North Coast Refrigeration – who has been doing the repairs on the chiller – has said that this is not a good idea since it’s impossible to tell when the other ammonia pipes might rupture. Brown says it’s better if the civic centre replaces the chiller as soon as the new one comes, which will mean shutting down the rink again for the installation. Kelly says that they will do whatever Brown recommends. “We’re going to defer to him because he’s the expert. If the new chiller comes in and we have to take week or two to put it in, that’s what we’ll have to do,” said Kelly.

◆ PETRONAS-PROGRESS

Terminal on Lelu Island Continued from page 1 “We are very hopeful that there will be a positive response to our project. We’re very experienced with building LNG terminals and we have a lot of experience in LNG world-wide,” she said, adding the company has a good safety record. Gill estimates that the project could potentially create 200 to 300 permanent jobs and 3,000 to 3,500 temporary jobs in the construction phase. “Overall, the total project will bring growth and prosperity to

B.C.” Gill said. “This is our first project in a joint venture partnership in Canada.” Construction of the terminal could start as early as 2015, with the estimated completion in 2019. BG Group announced earlier this year that they were also performing a feasibility study to create a terminal on Ridley Island, and have partnered with the Spectra Energy Corporation to create the gas line. Gill said two LNG terminals operating in the area would be feasible.

OPINION

MY VIEW…

Labour demand and high unemployment There is an interesting situation forming in the northwest when it comes to the labour market. As you can see from the story on the front page, businesses are looking for skilled workers, particularly in the trades area. In fact some industries are becoming desperate for skilled workers as major projects move forward, and the need for skilled labour is only going to grow as more and more eyes look to the northwest as a gateway to the Asia Pacific. At the moment I can rattle off a list of major projects that would need a significant workforce of trades people to move from construction to operation - the Kitimat Modernization, the construction of the Pinnacle Pellet Terminal, any of the five LNG plants proposed for either Kitimat or Prince Rupert, expansion of Fairview Terminal expected in the not-toodistant future, the Enbridge and Spectra pipelines and the oil refinery proposed by David Black. When you look at just how many workers would be needed to construct even a few of these projects and what it could mean for the economy and growth of the region, it somewhat boggles the mind. Contrasting the need for skilled labour is the BC government’s own employment data. According to the last release related to jobs in the province, the northwest has the highest unemployment in all of BC and is the only region to be in the midst of double-digits at 11.9 per cent. Granted that number covers a region from Vanderhoof to Haida Gwaii, but double digit unemployment can never be a good thing. So on one hand you have a need for skilled labour - the need for which extends beyond construction and industry to some

of the service and commercial businesses in the region - and on the other hand you have the highest unemployment rate in the province. Minister Pat Bell, during the last conference call on the matter, said he too was unsure how the boom in the northwest goes hand in hand with high unemployment. If there’s something to take from this, it’s that there

isn’t a shortage of available workers, there’s a shortage of trained available workers. If the government is looking for a way to solve the unemployment rate and ensure developers can meet their labour needs, training for those out of work to fill the positions needed must be made more readily available. ~ Shaun Thomas

Prince Rupert’s shift from transportation to destination Prince Rupert has always been a major transportation hub. It is the terminus of Highway 16 and of VIA Rail’s northern route, of the Inside Passage on BC Ferries, the Haida Gwaii ferry, and the Alaska ferry. It is a natural supply stop for Alaska-bound pleasure craft, and is discussed in the earliest classics of yachting literature. A tourism industry here was inevitable. Years ago I read that 200,000 vehicles a year passed through Prince Rupert in the early ‘80s. I’ve never gone back to confirm the statistic – I don’t even remember where I read it – but the number wouldn’t surprise me. What we now call the great northern circle route, from Vancouver to Prince George and Prince Rupert and back via the Island, was already popular. Advertising the allure of the British Columbia landscape, via train and steamship, began over a century ago. Yet that was the problem facing Prince Rupert at the beginning of this century. The early advertising focused on the journey.

Advertising by the railways, within the community. and the steamships and later Talking tourism We used to have Convention ferries, sold a scenic journey. and Visitors’ Bureaus whose sole The fact that hotel rooms in function was greet visitors as they Prince Rupert also sold was arrived.

The same shift museums, wildlife watching, sport fishing, was happening everywhere in the world. and so on. This work was well underway Changing this took a switch in philosophy by the time I started at TPR in 2003, and

shortly after that received a huge boost from the selection of Prince Rupert as a port of call for cruise ships. Cruise ships provided instant credibility. We weren’t able to fully capitalize on that, of course, despite our message growing even more refined with the creation of the Prince Rupert Visitor Plan in 2008, because the arrival of cruise coincided with a collapse of city budgets. But while we might have been able to do better with more money, it still worked. Prince Rupert is now largely seen as a destination for travelers. Of course many still pass through, disappointed that they haven’t done the research that would have told them that they would have thoroughly enjoyed an extra day here. There is still much work to do, but the purpose of that transitional committee of fifteen years ago has been largely achieved. Each year more and more people see Prince Rupert as a unique destination, and plan their journey to include time to enjoy our experiences and attractions.

An open letter to the Port Authority and Pinnacle Pellet Editor: I have read the environmental assessment screening for the Pinnacle Shipping Terminal to be located at the Westview Terminal Site in detail. I have a number of questions which remain unanswered. Approximately 100 people attended each of two public meetings and the message was very clear: This is a great project for Prince Rupert, but the Westview site is not an appropriate location because of its impact on residential areas and waterfront access, and the potential for fire, explosion, and harmful dust emissions. The argument has been made that there are far greater economic benefits to the community if the waterfront was developed with a linear trail and other commensurate commercial activity. I have also demonstrated through an economic analysis of property values, that the decreases in property assessments in the area will pretty much cancel out the tax revenue paid by Pinnacle Pellet. While other locations have been ruled out for various reasons, I note that there is no mention made in the report of a suggestion made at the second public meeting of utilizing the bench land area

adjacent to the Fairview Terminal for the storage silos. Was this location actually considered? At the public meetings and through 70 written submissions, the community expressed its concern about the loss of access to the waterfront. At the second public meeting Pinnacle Pellet ended its presentation by making a commitment to develop a linear park along the water front from the Westview site connecting with the Rotary Park. I see no mention of this commitment in the report and subsequent press releases. The opposite seems to be true. Buried in the Appendix is a map titled “Giving Back to the Community”, which describes how security fencing, barriers, and locked security gates will exclude the public from the waterfront. Could you explain to the community how such an abrupt change in commitment was made and how fencing and locked gates constitutes “Giving Back to the Community?”. The public will also have to pass through a newly constructed CN Security gate on Bill Murray Drive in order to access the Rotary Waterfront Park. How is this conducive to the economic development of that area and what message does it send to tourists and the community?

The locked gates and elimination of access to the rail crossing at the bottom of Graham Ave also means that the only access to “Section 2”, the area of Graham, Atlin, 2nd Ave, and Alpine Drive is via the Second Ave. Bridge. In the event of an emergency requiring response by fire trucks, ambulance, or police, any blockage or damage to the bridge will prevent access to the area and isolate those residents. How will this area of the City be able to function if such an incident arises? I also note that in section 6.2.14 that within two short sentences the conclusion is made that there will be no adverse socioeconomic effects. This is a remarkable statement given the volume of written submissions and attendance at the public meetings against the location of the terminal at Westview. Could you explain how such a conclusion was made and the analysis used to reach that decision? I also note that you are continuing to rely upon the fact that the public was adequately consulted under last year’s 2020 Land Use Management Plan about the potential use of the Westview site and all other areas within the jurisdiction of the Port of Prince Rupert. I have provided you with legal advice that reliance upon that process as constituting

adequate consultation stands on very shaky grounds. That report only considered the Westview site a suitable for cruise ship or mini-bulk shipments. Minibulk shipping is considered to be less than 25,000 DWT while this facility is designed to handle 75,000 DWT Panamax vessels. Is it your intention for type of interpretation to stand as an example of your commitment to genuine consultation with the community? The report also expresses a desire to engage in meaningful dialogue with the city and community in the development of a long term waterfront access and development plan. Could you explain to me why a similar commitment to develop a Waterfront Liason Committee made over a year ago in 2020 PRPA Land Use Plan has not been acted upon and why I have not had the courtesy of a response to my written requests to do so? I look forward to seeing the port work together with the community as a true partner with shared decision making rather than just going through the motions of consultation. You might just be surprised at how easy and beneficial that would be to all concerned. Ken Shaw

◆ LOCAL GOVERNMENT

Politicians in Victoria this week for UBCM conference By Alan S. Hale The Northern View Elected representatives from the City of Prince Rupert, the District of Port Edward, the Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District and all their senior staff are down in Victoria this week attending the annual meeting of Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM); a weeklong conference that allows local governments from across the province to come together and flex their political muscle as a group. “Throughout the year it is the best opportunity for us to actually

put forward our strategic priorities, to speak to people who are actually in a position to help us meet our priorities and our needs,” said Prince Rupert city councilor Anna Ashley. The main event of sorts is the voting on resolutions that are submitted by individual communities. This year Prince Rupert is introducing resolutions calling on the provincial and federal governments to loosen requirements on grant funding for infrastructure projects, to extend liability for marine accidents involving dangerous cargo to both

the carrier and seller of the cargo, that local governments’ tenders be exempted from the CETA free trade treaty with the European Union, and that the Joint Preparedness Emergency Plan and its funding be kept in place past 2013. Port Edward wants the national repeat sexual offender registry made public, and that federal infrastructure funding not be limited to public/private partnerships. The regional district wants the provincial government to recognize the coastal ferries as part of the highway system. If other communities pass these

resolutions, the UBCM will lobby other levels of government to act on them in the upcoming year. “It’s a chance for us to speak to the resolutions that affect us all as a whole, because these are forwarded to the provincial government and it’s what they’ll be looking at when they formulate policy,” said Ashley. The other big benefit of attending the UBCM conference is it’s typically well attended by provincial government and opposition politicians, including government ministers. This allows communities to schedule 15-minutes of face time with the person most able to fix a

problem of theirs. The regional district has a meeting scheduled with premier Christy Clark and Environment Minister Terry Lake on Wednesday to discuss the ongoing problem of disposing of tsunami debris that has washed up on Haida Gwaii. “We need a very firm commitment from the province that they are either going to remove this stuff or pay full price for the landfill tipping fees. I think we need to get that in place if we’re storing this debris for them,” Evan Putterill, the board member for Sandspit, said at their meeting on Friday.

The school district and city have requested that they receive $12,500 from the School Community Connections Program and an additional $5,000 that would relieve the PRRMS of some fundraising. The program requires the school district to gain support from the city and does not have any financial implications for the city. “By giving this approval we are simply approving the idea of the building so they can go forward with their application as opposed to approving their actual design

The Northern View Cardero Resource Corp. is planning to open a new coal mining operation in northeast BC that will send millions of tonnes of new coal to the terminal on Ridley Island. The company just finished the pre-feasibility study of the mine site at Carbon Creek, about 40 kilometres west of Hudson’s Hope. A geological survey of the site has estimated that there are at least 468-million tonnes of coal in the ground ready to be mined. Through the use of underground and surface mining, Cardero believes that it will be able to dig out 4.085-million tonnes of it a year over the twenty-year life of the project. The company has signed a 15-year contract with Ridley Terminals for 500,000 tonnes a year of port capacity starting in 2014, increasing to 900,000 tonnes by 2015. The contract hinges on Ridley getting a fourth stacker at the coal terminal, which they are expecting to get government approval for this year.

â—† STATISTICS CANADA

NEW CIVIC CENTRE SIGN‌

Census breaks down family composition By Shaun Thomas The Northern View Statistics Canada released new information from the 2011 census, and it shows there are roughly the same number of single men and single women in Prince Rupert. According to the census, there are 4,550 people of the 10,105 Prince Rupert residents over 15 who are not married or living common law, and 5,555 who are married or common-law. Of those not married or common-law, there are 2,270 men and 2,285 women, a difference of just 15. There are 1,750 men who have never been married compared to 1,370

women, a gap of 380. There are 145 men separated compared to 180 women, 265 men divorced compared to 305 women and 105 widowed men compared to 435 women – the largest gap with 330 more widowed women than men. And while the number of married or common-law men and women are equal at 2,775, there is a discrepancy in the numbers. 2,115 men say they are married compared to 2,100 women, and 680 women say they are living common-law compared to 665 men. The other information contained in the Sept. 19 release have to do with the make-up of families in the community. Of the 3,545 families in town, the largest

number by far is the two-person family with 1,745 couples in town compared to 835 three-person families, 660 fourperson families and 305 families with five or more people. When it comes to the 2,040 married couples, 940 have no children while 1,105 have at least one child. Of the 665 common-law couples, 320 are without children and 345 are with children. The census also looks at single-parent families, with single moms outnumbering single dads 640 to 190. There are 290 single moms with two or more children compared to just 60 single dads with two or more children.

◆ COMMUNITY GROUPS

City partially backs away from cuts to property tax exemptions By Alan S. Hale The Northern View City council has backed away from its plan to rollback property taxes for community groups, at least partially. During the Sept. 4 meeting, council decided organizations would have to pay 20 per cent of their property tax bill starting in 2013, and then pay 40 per cent of it the next year. That change would have meant organizations such as the Friendship House, Salmonid Enhancement Society, Transition Society, Senior Citizens’ Housing Society, and many others would have had to find hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars to pay taxes they hadn’t been

before. difficulty raising the 20 per cent But last Monday, council that it’s going to take...I think had second thoughts they all make about their policy and contributions to decided to only make “I have a probour community and those organizations pay a 20 per cent cut is 20 per cent of their tax lem reducing tax a big cut.” bill starting next year, The cuts apply and not cut back their tax exemptions by to any property tax exemptions any further exemption that is 40 per cent...” for three years. not for a school or a “I have a real problem church - which are Joy Thorkelson, city both exempt from with reducing tax exemptions by 40 per property taxes by councilor law.

This plan will bring in just “It seems to me that those under $20,000 a year in new organizations may have enough taxes.

◆ RINGWORM OUTBREAK

SPCA remains under quarantine By Alan S. Hale The Northern View The Prince Rupert SPCA has been under quarantine for more than two weeks, and no one can say for certain when its doors will open again. If the ringworm infection has been eliminated, the shelter could begin taking in and adopting out animals again in 10 days, if not it could be a lot longer. Since the quarantine began the staff at the SPCA have had to keep a grueling cleaning schedule, which includes washing 60 animals in a solution of lime and sulfur every three or four days, washing the building from floor to ceiling with antifungal soap, and throwing away any other porous surfaces such as scratching posts, toys, mats, everything that the spores might be hiding on. The SPCA staff has also been testing the animals to see if they

are still infected. “We take toothbrushes and we scrub their necks and their ears and then we put it in a plastic bag and then we put it on a gel and it grows. Whatever grow on the gel tells us what’s on the animal; like a Petri dish,” Anna Terebka, branch manager, said. Since starting their cleaning regiment, the shelter has sent out two batches of samples to Prince George to be analyzed; one went last week and the other was collected from the animals on Saturday. Before they can reopen both of those samples have to come back clean, if not, they have to stay under quarantine until they send out two batches that are. It takes the lab 10 days to analyze the samples, so the soonest the SPCA could open again is Oct. 3. “If we get one positive, then we have to assume that every animal has it,” said Terebka. If the samples don’t

come back clean the SPCA will stay closed until they do. Staff are crossing their fingers that results are clean, not just for the animals, but because the quarantine is draining them dry financially. All of the $3,400 that they raised at their annual Paws for a Cause fundraiser this month has been spent on large amounts of expensive soaps and cleaners for the quarantine. Just because the shelter is closed hasn’t stopped people from bringing in more animals though, and Terebka says that the shelter needs some families to volunteer to be foster homes for new animals until they can be admitted to the shelter. She also says that are in need of donations of bleach and towels as well. The SPCA is also hosting a Quiz Night at the Moose Hall on Nov. 16 to help raise more money for its operations.

◆ NORTHERN GATEWAY

Enbridge rep fields questions from Chamber members By Shaun Thomas The Northern View Enbridge Northern Gateway community and municipal relations manager Michele Perret was a guest last Wednesday’s Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce luncheon, providing information on the project and fielding questions from those in attendance. Before the question period Perret outlined the reasons the company was pursuing the project, including a need to find new markets for Canadian energy aside from the United States, and plans for the pipeline, which would run from Alberta to Kitimat and would largely be underground along the route. She also touched on the Joint Review Panel process that is underway and will return to Prince Rupert in November, stating that final arguments will take place next April and that the company expects a decision to be handed down by the end of 2013. While the schedule marine safety specialist who was to present for Enbridge was delayed and missed the presentation, Perret touched on some aspects

of the marine operation as well noting that all tankers would have two tugs running along the vessel on the way out to the open ocean and the speed would be capped at 10 to 12 knots for the ships. In terms of benefits, Perret said that the company was targeting 15 per cent Aboriginal employment during the construction of the line and operation of the terminal, that approximately $318 million of the $800 million in procurement opportunities would be in northwestern BC and that 58 new jobs would be created at the Kitimat terminal. When it came time to take questions, some of those addressing Perret voiced their concerns about a potential pipeline in the region. “I am in support of a boom in the northwest, but I am not in favour of the oil spills that are being predicted,” said business owner Marc Page, who brought along quotes from Enbridge representatives saying they couldn’t guarantee there wouldn’t be a spill. “We are business people and understand the economics and risk associated with having just one

of Cassiar Cannery. In response to concerns about spills on the land and in the water, Perret said the company was putting world class safety measures in place and was committed to addressing any spills

faster that required by Canadian standards. “I’m not proud of [the spill] in Michigan, and there are a lot of differences in this pipeline and that one. What I am proud of is the clean-up job that we did...We did a complete overhaul of the company as a result of that spill,” said Perret, noting that the pipeline width has been increased and remote pump stations would be manned 24/7 in response to feedback from the public. “We have designed a response plan and have established places where emergency response equipment could be stashed away... Having tugs the size we are proposing with response capabilities we are proposing in the area would benefit the whole coast, including Prince Rupert.” Other questions focused on heavy First Nations opposition, with Perret noting that 60 per cent of First Nations the company has consulted with have agreed to an equity offer but that the names of those groups are being kept confidential by request, the number of local jobs, with Perret noting locals would be hired as often as possible, and the impact of exporting on fuel prices, with Perret saying it could be a few cents per litre.

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 benefits.northerngateway.ca.

Kitimat Clean Ltd. has applied for environmental assessment of a proposed oil refinery, after commissioning a poll that found nearly three out of four B.C. residents support the idea. A province-wide phone survey conducted during September found 78 per cent of respondents were aware of the proposal to build a large refinery at Kitimat to process Alberta heavy crude oil. Provincially, 72 per cent either favoured or were â&#x20AC;&#x153;somewhat supportiveâ&#x20AC;? of the proposed $13 billion refinery, which would ship gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel to market rather than tankers of diluted bitumen. Kitimat Clean president David Black said he was pleasantly surprised that so many people have heard of the refinery proposal, and that most support the idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously the concept has struck a chord with the public,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Most in BC support Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refinery plan

Black remains chairman of Black Press Ltd., which owns this newspaper, and formed Kitimat Clean as a separate company to pursue the refinery project. He is financing the provincial environmental assessment for it, which he expects to take two years and cost several million dollars. Black first proposed the refinery to the B.C. government seven years ago as chairman of the B.C. Progress Board, an advisory panel set up to examine economic and social development of the province. His interest was renewed when Enbridge Inc. applied for federal approval to build the Northern Gateway pipeline from northern Albertaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil sands to a new tanker port at Kitimat. The Enbridge project has met strong opposition from communities, aboriginal groups and environmentalists, much of it based on the threat of a tanker spill on B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Coast. Black argues that a refinery not only reduces the spill risk, it means 6,000 construction jobs and 3,000 permanent employees to Over 150 students attended the annual beginner band workshop at Prince Rupert Middle School last Tuesday. Musicians from the community volunteered to show students the basics of putting their instruments together and playing their first few notes.

◆ SEVEN DAY JOURNEY

Cops for Cancer riders roll into Rupert to complete trip By Martina Perry The Northern View RCMP members and the support team participating in the Cops for Cancer Tour de North ride concluded their weeklong bicycle journey with a reception at the Crest Hotel in Prince Rupert on Sept. 20. The 850 km Tour de North ride through north central B.C. raises money and awareness for pediatric cancer research and programs like Camp Goodtimes to support children and their families living with cancer. 20 riders started in Prince George on Sept. 14, with 18 finishing the trip in Prince Rupert. Inspector Bob Killbery and constable Jennifer Collins from Prince Rupert were happy to be home after riding an average 100 km per day, with the longest day being 170 km. “We could ride another day or two. Everyday it seemed to get easier,” Killbery said. “We met kids along the way that have been going through cancer treatments and kids that have been to Camp Goodtimes. After you see them and what they’ve been through, [riding] for a week seems like nothing,” Collins said. Killbery said this was the perfect time to do the ride because he is retiring in November and his daughter, Jennifer Collins, had recently been transferred back to Prince Rupert. “Being able to do the ride with Jenny has been a great experience,” Killbery said. The exact amount raised was not known as of deadline, but Erin Reynolds, who was one of the ride’s support staff, said that the ride raised more than $242,000 overall. Of that total, Prince Rupert riders raised over $20,000 from their fundraising efforts.

PUBLIC NOTICE

RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, November 19, 2012 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, February 18, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

◆ AREAS OF FOCUS

Chamber lists priorities By Shaun Thomas The Northern View During its first meeting following the summer break, Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce president Jason Scherr outlined three strategic priorities for the group. The first item agreed upon during a strategic planning meeting of the new board has to do with the impression people get when they land in the community. “The airport is a vital gateway to Prince Rupert, and as such it is important to create a great customer experience when people come to town,” said Scherr, noting that stakeholders are meeting next week to look at what could be done to improve the airport. The second issue was the look of the downtown core, which has seen

some improvements with the series of murals and last summer’s Paint Prince Rupert initiative. “The downtown core represents the heart and the heritage of the community. The Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce is interested in ideas and bringing stakeholders together to revitalize downtown,” said Scherr. The final priority for the Chamber has to do with attracting people from the northwest to town. “As a coastal town, Prince Rupert has advantages that others in the region don’t have...We want to promote Prince Rupert as an eat, shop and play destination,” he said, noting that there is a section on the website to market Prince Rupert and plans are in place for a campaign to get people from Haida Gwaii to do Christmas shopping in Prince Rupert.

together. “There you have one larger centre, Fort St. John, and a number of smaller communities around it,” said Pietralla. The northwest situation is different because it has three larger centres – Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert – and more local and regional government structures than exist in the northeast. That presents more of a challenge but Pietralla says common goals such as preparing local residents for employment, encouraging people to move here and improving recreational and social amenities can be developed. To better focus its own work as a regional development entity, KTIDS has just added “Northwest” to its name. Pietralla noted that when change happens, it happens fast and those

that are not prepared, will be caught off guard. “You can sit back and let it happen. But then don’t be surprised if it’s not to your liking,” added Pietralla of events which can sweep through a region. “Let’s view change with a positive approach.” Some of the advice contained in the study, developing material for potential industrial investors, for example, is already underway. “It validates some of the efforts already happening,” said Pietralla. The need for regional unity and vision is also important when asking senior governments for financial help or other assistance, said Pietralla. “Without that, it’s easy for those governments to say, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know where to put my money’,” Pietralla added.

How to prepare and protect your lawn for the winter Every weekend of the last few months you have spent mowing, weeding, edging, and trimming your lawn so that it will look its best. In order to ensure your lawn makes a complete recovery after winter hibernation, you may want to spend the fall taking steps to help your lawn survive the winter months ahead. Winterizing a lawn varies depending on where you live and how harsh a typical winter is. There are certain key tasks to complete

before you can rest for the winter season. * Remove fallen leaves and debris. Leaf cleanup is among the tasks homeowners dread the most. Raking leaves can be arduous, but it is well worth the effort. Fallen leaves can smother the grass and lead to dead spots and decay next season. Wait until the majority of the leaves have fallen from the trees before you begin to rake; otherwise, you could find yourself repeating the process throughout the fall. Mulched leaves can be added in small amounts to garden beds to provide rich organic

Additional debris can become up trapped under snow and hinder grass growth when spring arrives. * Cut your lawn short. Unless the season is unseasonably wet and warm, your lawn shouldn’t grow too much in October and November. Continue to cut your lawn until there is no visible growth for about two weeks. It pays to give it a short cut before frost arrives so that long piles of dead grass will not smother any new growth in the spring. Also, long grass tends to bend down upon itself, trapping moisture that can lead to fungal diseases like snow mold. * Aerate the lawn.

Easy ways you can winterize your home this fall season When summer draws to a close and autumn arrives, homeowners must place a precedent on readying their homes for the winter months. Often referred to as “winterizing,” the process is meant to ensure a home can withstand harsh winter weather while proving a safe haven from the elements. As autumn arrives, homeowners can take several steps to get their homes ready for whatever winter has to offer with the following tasks. * Fix the leaks. A leaky home will prove an expensive home during the winter months. A home with many leaks will be much colder to inhabit, and homeowners typically turn up the heat to counter drafts that can make a home feel like a meat locker. But turning up the thermostat isn’t the answer. Instead, fix leaks in the fall before the cold weather arrives. Leaks should not be very hard to find. On the first breezy autumn afternoon, walk around the house in search of any drafty areas. These drafts will be noticeable and often occur around doors and window frames, electrical outlets and even recessed lighting. Homeowners have a host of options at their disposal to plug leaks, be it door sweeps that block air from entering under exterior doors to caulk applied around leaky windows. When using caulk outdoors, be sure to use a weatherresistant caulk or, if sealing brick, use masonry sealer.

idyllic image associated primarily with autumn. Unfortunately, when leaves fall they often fall into the gutters. Routinely clean the gutters once the leaves start to fall. Clean gutters will allow snow and rain to effectively drain through the gutters. If the gutters are clogged, snow might have nowhere to go when it begins to melt, and roof damage might result. Such damage is costly but preventable in most instances. One of the easier preventive measures to take is to routinely clean the gutters of leaves and other debris that accumulate during the fall. When cleaning the gutters, make sure they are properly aligned. Poorly aligned gutters can lead to a host of problems. One such problem is flooding. If downspouts are not properly aligned with the rest of the gutters, then water might not be directed away from the home as it’s intended. Routinely cleaning gutters throughout the fall and early winter can help reduce the risk of roof damage Instead, water might be directed toward the home, resulting in caused by winter weather. flooding or additional water * Add insulation upstairs. the attic is in need of additional should consider upgrading their damage.

Tips on how you can save money on home improvement With the economy still struggling, money is tight for many homeowners. That reality can present a problem to those who want to improve their homes without spending too much money. The cost of a home improvement project depends on a host of factors, including the scale of the project and the availability of materials. Upscale projects like a full roof replacement will set homeowners back a substantial amount of money. In its 2011-2012 “Cost vs. Value Report,” Remodeling magazine revealed that the average cost of a such a project was nearly $38,000. However, a smaller project like a garage door replacement could be completed for fewer than $3,000. When deciding if a home improvement project is within your budget, it’s a good idea to consult such figures before choosing a project. For example, if your home is a fixer-upper, then one project may not be more urgent than another, something that may allow you to choose less expensive projects now while saving money for more expensive projects down the road. It’s also important for

homeowners to know that figures such as those in the “Cost vs. Value Report” are just averages. Some projects might cost more than the average, while others might come in well under budget. To ensure your project is one of the latter and not the former, consider the following ways to trim costs off your next home improvement project. * Avoid the DIY movement if you don’t have adequate experience. Many homeowners fall into the DIY trap, feeling they can pull off a project without hiring a professional contractor. While this is an option for those homeowners with home improvement experience, it’s an approach that’s best avoided by those without such experience. Homeowners who decide to go it alone on a home improvement project should know that mistakes are costly. One mistake could have you paying for the same materials twice: once when you begin the project, and then again when you need to hire a contractor after your efforts didn’t work out. A failed DIY project also costs you time, something homeowners hoping to sell their homes post-project cannot afford to waste.

* Hire the right contractor. The best contractor for the job won’t necessarily be the one who comes in with the lowest estimate. The right contractor will know how long a project will take and what the materials will cost. The wrong contractor, who might lack the experience of his competitors, might make empty promises that ultimately cost you more money via overrun costs. Find a contractor who comes highly recommended and is willing to provide references and show you his or her past projects like the one you’re hiring him or her undertake. If you hire the wrong contractor, the project may never be completed and you may find yourself in court, where the money you had budgeted for home improvements is being spent on lawyers instead. * Consider supplying your own materials. If you diligently research your project, you should be able to buy the materials yourself, even if you plan on hiring a contractor to do the work. Some contractors mark up the materials as a means of padding the bill. If you research the project and learn about the materials you want to use, you can save a substantial amount of money

Maintaining your fireplace this fall People looking to embrace the cold-weather season often find snuggling up in front of a roaring fire is both relaxing and warming. Fireplaces are popular components of homes across the country. Ensuring fireplaces are prepared for a season of use is important from a safety standpoint and for personal comfort as well. All home heating systems require regular maintenance to function safely and efficiently. One of the most important steps to fireplace maintenance and preparation is having the entire thing cleaned by a professional. A chimney sweep provides a variety of services. According to Ace Chimney Sweeps of Maryland, a chimney sweep will clean out the entire chimney. Many use a highpowered vacuum so that there is no soot or dust entering the home. Depending on the range of services, some sweeps also offer a series of inspections of the chimney, interior flue and checks of attic spaces for any damaged areas that will need repair. The next step will be securing your source of fuel. Many

homeowners contract with a provider of seasoned firewood. A delivery of one or two cords of wood may take the average fireplace user through the season. Wood can also be purchased at supermarkets or picked up free in different areas. It’s not adviseable to use wood that has just been cut down. It likely contains high levels of moisture that will result in more smoke than burn power, and could lead to deposits forming on the inside of the chimney. Synthetic logs are also available, but use caution because they may burn unevenly and put out higher levels of carbon monoxide. Follow directions on the packages of these products carefully. It is important to inspect a fireplace screen or guard to ensure it can safely protect against embers escaping the fireplace. In homes where there are young children, an added barrier may be needed in front of the fireplace to prevent little hands from touching the hot screen. It is vital to open up the chimney flue before starting any fire. This allows fresh air to feed the fire and will enable smoke to exit the home. Failure to open

the flue can result in smothering, dirty smoke filling the home quite quickly. The flue should be closed after the fire is completely extinguished so that animals and outside debris don’t enter the home via the opening. Be sure to have a metal container for removing and storing hot ashes handy. Embers and ashes can stay hot for quite some time, so they should be placed outdoors, ideally far from the home so they don’t set anything ablaze. Educate household members about the rules of fireplace use. They should be aware that no items should be discarded into the fire to avoid the emission of toxic fumes or dangerous embers. All it takes is one stray ember to start a huge fire. Also, improper fuel materials may lead to the buildup of flammable creosote on the chimney. A fireplace can be a focal point, a source of home heating and just a nice place to which to retire when the weather is cold. Preparing the fireplace for use and maintaining it properly are the keys to a safe season of use.

A room with a fireplace is a welcome retreat on a cold, windy day.

Tips to conserve energy Winter * Install affordable plastic window-sealing kits, especially where you feel drafts. * Install foam gaskets behind electrical outlets and switches to reduce air leakage. * Close the fireplace damper tightly when it’s not in use. If you use your fireplace regularly, consider adding a well-designed insert. * Replace or clean furnace filters at least once every three months.

Fall * Check insulation levels where you can, like the attic or the floor of a room over the garage. If you didn’t get to it in the spring, install spray foam insulation to seal around openings and penetrations that let air flow in and out. * Use caulking, sealant and weather-stripping to create a barrier against air and water around doorframes, windows and baseboards. Choose the right caulking for the surface.
