Police investigate house shooting

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

$

Cameron Orr The police are currently investigating a shooting of a home on Fulmar Street near midnight on Sept. 23. The police are not releasing much information at this time while local RCMP and the Forensic Identification Unit continue their work. A house on Fulmar Street was cordoned off with police tape early last week, as well as the section of the street immediately in front. Orange traffic cones marked certain areas. Staff sergeant Steve Corp of the Kitimat RCMP detachment said that no one was injured in the attack and that police do not believe the incident was random. The suspects in the case are thought to have fled in two separate vans, which may have been gold or silver in colour. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the RCMP at 250-6327111 or call Crimestoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800- The police continue to investigate an incident at a house on Fulmar Street which was the target of a shooting on Sept. 23. Police do not believe the incident was random. 222-8477.

Quality of food in the hospital questioned Cameron Orr Hospital food doesn’t have a great reputation even at the best of times but the selection at Kitimat General Hospital has been coming under particular scrutiny. Leading the charge is private citizen Ernie Archer, who has been campaigning the issue of food quality ever since an extended stay at the hospital resulted in significant weight loss, he claims. Since then he’s been on a campaign to see food quality brought up to better standards, a fight he’s taken to the Kitimat Health Advocacy Group. Rob Goffinet, who chairs that group and is also a town councillor, said that the issue of food quality will be a topic when he and the rest of Kitimat Council meets with senior members of Northern Health this month. (It won’t, however, be the only issue, he added.) He said the group is still “trying to come to grips” with the issue of food quality, but is aware of reports from patients, including those in multi-level care, regarding the un-

appetizing nature of the food. Meanwhile Archer is just hoping something gets done as his phone rings every day with someone calling to complain to him about something they have eaten or something served to a person they know.

“The food service is delivered in this manner because it is the best practice for food service.” “Nobody seems to do anything,” Archer told the Sentinel. He will gauge his success by seeing the kitchen at the hospital put into full use to prepare and cook food, instead of just being a reheating station, he said. And until then, he said the only action he can take is to

“just repeatedly keep complaining about the food.” Northern Health Authority’s (NHA) communications officer Jonathon Dyck told the Sentinel that food quality is constantly being evaluated. He said that NHA is constantly working with patients and clients to improve the quality of food and that NHA incorporates the input of many levels of people, including dieticians and nutritionists. He said NHA’s core foods menu is designed to provide high quality, nutritious food with a variety of menu choices. He confirmed that food is brought into Kitimat General Hospital from elsewhere and that the food is then prepared on-site. “The food service is delivered in this manner because it is the best practice for food service, particularly for residential care clients,” he said. When asked if there are any known concerns with food quality from the public, Dyck said that the issue of food can be very personal and affected by personal tastes.

Council wants safer Cablecar turn-off...page 3


2 Northern Sentinel, Wednesday, October 3, 2012

Getting down to business with bootcamp Businesses from Terrace to Kitimat are meeting today at the Riverlodge to figure out just exactly how to get their share of work from regional industrial proponents. The ContractorSupplier Bootcamp is being led by Renata King, who does business development with Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT). The bootcamp has been on tour to other communities such as Burns Lake and New Hazelton, and according to King will introduce local businesses to

the sometimes complex world of dealing with major industry. “It’s an opportunity to educate local companies about the requirements that they have to have in place to potentially be on the preferred supplier list or a bid list,� said King. She said the inspiration for the bootcamp came from a meeting between NDIT and about a dozen industrial proponents for the region where challenges were identified to access local suppliers and contractors. “These major op-

portunities like [iquid natural gas], transmission lines...these opportunities are new so the companies have to make sure they have the kinds of professionalism in place that’s required to do business with these big corporations.� The session will also address the ‘why’ question, such as why such complicated processes are in place for local companies to get involved. “They say, ‘I’m a good company, I have a good track record, why don’t you just hire

me?’ and it’s not that simple,� said King, noting rules around things such as risk management in a large project are extensive. “Reality is you don’t want to be uninformed and then sit on the sidelines and say ‘why are they parachuting people in from Alberta?’�

Northern Health Authority’s communications officer Jonathon Dyck couldn’t say too much about the vacancy of the ultrasound technician at Kitimat General Hospital but he did say things are definitely hap-

REGIONAL Taking a turn on Cablecar NEWS IN BRIEF

Mayors’ caucus The BC Mayors’ Caucus, which is comprised of a steering committee of 10 B.C. mayors — the closest member being Smithers’ mayor — have announced the results of a meeting of 140 mayors in Victoria last week. Out of their meeting, the caucus has endorsed the statement “We agree that our communities require immediate action to provide stable, predictable, long term infrastructure funding from federal and provincial governments, to meet municipal needs as defined by each community’s priorities. This statement affirms and complements the efforts of [Union of B.C. Municipalities] and [Federation of Canadian Municipalities] to address the infrastructure needs of communities to ensure social, economic and environmental well-being.”

Grizzly attack An angler, 65, from Anchorage, Alaska was mauled by a grizzly bear along the Morice River on Sept. 18. The attack occurred around 7:30 p.m., 23 kilometres up the Morice River Road, as the fisher was preparing to leave the area, Supervisor for the Bulkley Stikine Zone with the Conservation Officer Service Kevin Nixon said.

rio Feldhoff wanted to know what the company intended to do with their log sort facility up Forest Avenue as it had been unused for some time. Staff brought the application back to the Sept. 17 meeting, saying that the company had told the District they were expecting operations to resume

near the end of September. (Also reported in the Sentinel, Sept. 19, page 7.) With that information returned to the council, the application passed, however Feldhoff did offer a few words of reminder for the company to respect Kitimat’s bylaws as it pertains to sound pollution, saying he

Permit given for sign Kitimat Council approved a development permit to Super Valu for a new sign. The application was

for the grocery store’s free-standing sign seen on the green space next to the store along Lahakas Boulevard.

No comments were received for the application ahead of the Sept. 17 council meeting, or at the meeting itself.

Mario Feldhoff supported the motion and also suggest that the administration dust off old council motions that relate to this issue as the intersection has been a centre for discussion in the past. Director of Engineering Tim Gleig said that they have sent letters in the past to the Ministry of Transportation and added that it’s typically a technical matter on when new lanes are put in, based on the amount of traffic.

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.

A reason not to be worried It’s unfortunate when two events so separate in nature happen so close together in time, but that happened last week. A house on Fulmar Street, you’ll know from our front page, was shot at late at night last Sunday. Few details are being released at the moment as the investigation continues. Rightly so, this story has caused a great deal of discussion and some worry among a community that has for its history prided itself on its safety. Nearly every person I’ve ever spoken to about this town, from when I first lived here and still to this second round, go on about how secure it is and how great it is to raise a family. Now people are getting jittery after there have been a few crime stories this year — robberies, assaults, etc. — and many believe the extra people in town for the construction is the problem. That is in spite of the RCMP saying the only connection they’ve seen from the construction is an increase in traffic issues. At the very least it’s been a bit unusual in this usually quiet town. As for the Fulmar story, over 40 ‘shares’ on our Facebook page related to the Fulmar shooting proves it’s one of the most popular stories we at the paper have seen in awhile — at least, popular in the sense that people are talking about it. Yet despite the media’s reputation for following negativity, I had to admit I felt uneasy seeing the prior post on our Facebook page before the crime happened — it was a photo I took from Rotary’s International Day of Peace, of a high school student carrying an ornamental dove towards a crowd of dozens gathered to hold hands and form the symbol of peace. Rotary has hosted this event each of the past four years, and this year marked the year Kitimat Council declared this community a peace community. It bothered me that so soon after we celebrate peace in our community we experience a moment of non-peace. However the more I thought about it the less unease I felt. Allow me to explain: Rotary, and the plethora of people who attended Mount Elizabeth Theatre on Sept. 21, have spent four years promoting peace and working together. Incidents like the shooting are unfortunate, but they’re still the exception rather than the rule. Continued on page 5

stashing lots of pork into cold storage, as a buffer against shortages and high prices next year. Frankly, I have no doubt of that food prices are headed for the stratosphere — a trip to any grocery store will quickly confirm that. The suggestion is that we do a little bacon hoarding and freezing! OK! I draw some comfort, I hope, from this report. “I think that’s hogwash,” Rosemary Smart, international marketing programs coordinator for the Canadian Swine Exporters Association (CSEA) told the QMI Agency. “In Canada it’s not an issue at all. We export a lot more meat than we can consume. If our (Canadian) consumer wants to eat pork we have a supply in Canada.” Good news to me, but there are still some other disturbing indicators that this could be bad. How big an issue is the diversion of corn, for example, to ethanol? Well, certainly big enough for the United Nations to ask the U.S. to suspend a federal mandate for the use of corn-based ethanol as a fuel for cars. It also asks suggests big producers such as Russia keep allowing exports of grain, instead of banning them in order to offset the lower production of domestic farms. Even the Christian Science Monitor suggests that “the world’s poor are too connected to global markets for producer nations to act selfishly.” Continued on page 5

Reader shares her peace Dear Sir, Thank you seem inadequate words. Still they are right for Peace Day. To the ladies from the Sikh Temple, who spent the morning of September 21 making samosas, a gift for us to enjoy before the Peace Day program, thank you. To a new business in town, Leavitt Machinery, who donated the use of a man lift so photographer Dwight Magee could take great photos when we made our 4th Human Peace Sign, thank you. To Daudet Creek Contracting, who moved the man lift to Mount Elizabeth Theatre, thank you. To our mayor and council, all were out to sign the declaration that saw Kitimat become the third Rotary Peace city in Canada, thank you. Thank you to the Spirit of the Kitlope dancers, whose dancing and drumming, lead us outdoors to make the Human Peace Sign. I was close to happy tears. Thank you to Susie Smeader, for organizing the children’s choir for us. What a delight it was to see and hear them! To MLA Robin Austin, Shelley Bolton, who spoke for the Haisla Nation, Mayor Joanne Mon-

aghan, our sincere appreciation for your thoughtful words. There are so many others who have helped Rotary this year and in years past. I believe this shows the “heartâ€? of our town. It seems to me, whenever I’ve asked, the answer has been “yesâ€? from individuals, businesses and clubs. The list is far too long to add but you know who you are. Thank you again. Finally, I share a cut and paste from an e-mail sent my way from a fellow who lives in Vapi, India. He is our past Rotary International President. It sums up the spirit behind what our Rotary Club has been doing and why: â€œâ€ŚI was delighted to learn about your peace story. That is the way to go as you work for Peace through Service. If each community – each Kitimat – will want and work for peace in our world, peace will surely become a reality.â€? Please keep up your great work. Warm regards, Kalyan Banerjee Yours in peace, Eleanor Kendell

Under misc. Continued from page 4 I would expect the US to resist such requests. The ethanol lobby is a big one and the Democrats have been strongly pursuing alternate fuel use in campaigns. However, where money is the bottom line, and I would hardly say this is true only in the US, this one bacon consumer likes the suggestion of hoarding a few packs of bacon in the deep freeze this winter, despite the assurances of the Canadian Swine Exporters since I see ‘exporters’ as the critical word. Now I’m checking Google to see how long it’s safe to freeze bacon. ahewitson@telus.net Manage your ights online and win! Purchase your Quick Tickets online at hawkair.ca

Petition goes to RTA Cameron Orr Reg Chamberlain presented Kitimat Council with a copy of his petition to Rio Tinto Alcan to ask them to reopen Hospital Beach and the boat launch. Chamberlain said he managed to secure about 331 signatures,

which he was scheduled to present to RTA’s management in the days ahead. He said the impetus for the petition was through conversations between him and various other senior citizens who were concerned over the closure

of the beach. Councillor Phil Germuth remarked at the meeting that RTA could have done better in how they handled the closure of the boat ramp and that access to water will be his gauge of success in relationship building with the

company. Mary Murphy said that she was comfortable with the explanation that the beach had been closed due to safety concerns.

Kitimat Right to Life

Don’t worry Continued from page 4 People have taken notice of this story precisely because it is so unusual for Kitimat. We are a quiet town. Rotary isn’t just promoting peace in Kitimat, it’s reminding us that we have it. Not so many people ‘shared’ the photo I posted of the peace dove as they did the photo of a crime scene. But that’s actually good thing, when you think about it. In this business, you find people speak up louder for

the things they’re outraged over. There is outrage over the shooting, but that just goes to show that Kitimatians still believe Kitimat is the peaceful town they’ve always known. And despite a few hiccups this year, I think that’s still the case. (But hey, all that being said, I just had to go and ‘share’ the peace dove after writing this. I think my friends should know we still keep the peace.)

GATEWAY perspectives More than a few people arrived to Mount Elizabeth Theatre on Sept. 21 to celebrate Rotary Club’s International Day of Peace. The celebration was filled with entertainment, the main event of course the giant human-link peace symbol made in the parking lot behind the theatre. Above, you can see Dwight Magee’s photo taken from high on a lift of the crowd. Clockwise from that photo, Rotary youth join the procession outdoors while holding up a ceremonial peace dove; Spirit of Kitlope drummers keep the air pounding with their traditional song. There was much more entertainment with singers and choirs, and the official signing of Kitimat as a peace community, signed by all of council.

Where to from here

BC will benefit In recent months, there’s been plenty of economic discussion surrounding our Gateway Project. As a British Columbian, you want to know: What’s in it for B.C.? From one British Columbian to another, I feel strongly that you’ve got every right to know. And a recent independent report makes it abundantly clear that Gateway will provide significant economic benefits for our province. The Canadian Energy Research Institute is an independent, notfor-profit research establishment, and it recently released a report on the economic impact of exporting our oil/resources to countries in Asia. In pretty clear terms, CERI’s calculations suggest that we will be Canada’s biggest beneficiary of the Northern Gateway pipeline through the next 25 years — in key categories such as gross domestic product (GDP) impact, employment impact, employee compensation, and tax revenue generation. According to the report, over the next quarter-century, construction and operation of the Northern Gateway pipeline itself will create an additional $8.9 billion in GDP

Join the conversation at

to the Canadian economy — with $4.7 billion of that amount, or 53 per cent, heading to B.C. Our province also stands to benefit the most in terms of employment impact, since 70,000 person-years of construction and operations employment will be created in British Columbia, compared to 37,000 for Alberta and 8,000 in Ontario. In addition, we would see 55 per cent of the total $5.1 billion in Canada-wide Northern Gateway employee compensation, or just under $2.9 billion. I’m proud of the economic value that Gateway will bring to Canada. I believe our province should receive its fair share. And as these reputable numbers clearly demonstrate, we will.

Opera coming to schools In what is certainly a high note for Kitimat schools, students will be able to watch a performance put on by Vancouver Opera In Schools. The travelling opera show partners with school districts to bring their performances out of the city and the Coast Mountains School District just announced they will be bringing up the singers for shows around the district. Select Kitimat students will watch the show tomorrow when there will be two performances at Mount Elizabeth Theatre. Due to the limited shows and seating, the opera will only be available to students. Vancouver Opera’s performance on this tour is called Naomi’s Road, based on a novel by Joy Kogawa. The setting is World War II and tells the story of a 9-year-old girl’s journey with her family from Vancouver to an internment camp in the interior of B.C. Nancy Wells, school district superintendent, said that the shows are open to grades where the curriculum matches somewhat to the subject of the show, but they are trying to get as many students as possible to see the performance. “I just felt it was time that kids in the Coast Mountains School District had this opportunity,” said Wells. “I think it’s going to be a really...great occasion.” The Vancouver Opera in Schools program has been running for over 35 years. Performances were also done in Hazelton, Terrace and Stewart.

KITIMAT’S #1 NEWS SOURCE

The new playground off of Smith Street started going up last week. The pieces started being assembled on Tuesday and the whole thing was expected to be nearly done by early this week, although it wasn’t immediately known when the playground would be in service. The playground occupies the green space in the middle of the Smith Street ‘loop’.

Be Bear Aware! Reducing Human-Bear Conflicts Every year many bears are destroyed as a result of conflicts between people and bears. Most of these problems begin when people allow bears to access non-habitat food sources, such as garbage. And the way to prevent those deaths is to ensure bears don’t start regarding your yard as an amble-through fast food outlet. HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE This is the single biggest killer of bears. When people allow bears to access garbage, they help create “problem” bears that are usually destroyed. During the early spring to late fall, keep garbage behind closed doors in your garage, basement or storage area. Put your garbage out on the morning of collection day and not the night before. Thoroughly clean your garbage containers regularly. PET FOODS To avoid attracting bears, feed your pets indoors. If you must feed them outside, only put out enough food for a single meal and keep empty pet dishes inside. Store pet food inside your house. UNCLEANED BARBEQUES During bear season, clean your barbeque immediately after every use. Wash the grill or burn off the smells, food residue and grease. If you can smell your barbeque, then it is not clean enough. Store your barbeque in a safe place behind closed doors. COMPOST BINS Rotting food waste in compost bins draws bears. To reduce odours, cover compost with soil and bleach or lime. Washable, plastic compost bins with lids are recommended for outdoor use. They must be cleaned regularly. FRUIT TREES Picking ripe and excess fruit and removing windfall on a regular basis will discourage bears from seeking food. Store your fruit securely behind closed doors. DUMPSTERS Bears are lured into communities by the smells of food and garbage coming from commercial dumpsters. The only way to keep bears out of dumpsters is to lock the lids down every night. Local businesses that use commercial dumpsters should ensure that their dumpsters are locked at the end of each day.

The days are shorter and the air is cooler, but there's still lots of outdoor activities to enjoy. And in Kitimat, that means being BEAR AWARE!

Students run for Fox Cameron Orr While it’s not yet known how much was raised at Mount Elizabeth Middle Secondary School — fundraising was still ongoing at deadline — students really put in the effort to support fundraising for cancer research. MEMSS joined schools all across Kitimat to do the annual Terry Fox Run. The high schoolers also pitched in with hot dog sales and car washes to help bring up the total. Out of the runners in the middle school, the top placed male run-

ners were Tayden Fowler-McNab at 22:42; Ethan Morgas with 23:03 and Hayden Dobbin at 23:06 In the female division, the top runners were Kleanza Cathers at 26 minutes; Maddy Hoffman at 27:42 and Sarah Chaulk at 28:3. With the male secondary student runners, the results were Cam Chanin with 19:35; Guillaume Sauve at 19:50; and Mr. Dahler at 20.02. In the female category, Maddy Amado was in first with 26:03; Sarah Khan followed with 28:38; and Kaitlyn Enmark in third with 28:57.
