Final comment period on phase II expansion underway By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

Thank you to all of the Prince Rupert businesses and citizens who assisted in raising funds and awareness For more information on the fight to end breast cancer, please see Page 14

On Oct. 16, the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s comprehensive study on the phase II expansion of Fairview Terminal was released, kicking off the final public comment period for the project. The document looks at the expansion in two phases, with the first moving the terminal closer to town and the second expanding toward Ridley Island. Between the two phases, the project calls for the infilling of 11.1 hectare of marine environment, the construction of additional wharf, container yard and intermodal yard space, the removal and relocation 14 rail tracks within the intermodal yard for a total of approximately 14,000 metres of rail, dredging and at-sea disposal, construction of two rail siding

that require infilling above and below the high water mark and construction of a road connecting Fairview Terminal to Ridley Island. Once Phase One of the expansion is complete, though, the Prince Rupert Port Authority envisions up to 10 vessels per week calling on Prince Rupert while the expansion to the south would accommodate up to 14 vessels. The overall capacity of the terminal would be two million TEUs, which is four times the 500,000 TEU capacity the first phase was designed to handle. In terms of train traffic, the expansion toward town would increase to a total of six train movements per day – three inbound and three outbound – while the second phase would see up to 10 train movements per day – five inbound and five outbound.

Representatives from Spectra Energy were in Prince Rupert on Wednesday as the company begins an initial consultation phase about the proposed LNG pipeline to Prince Rupert. The visit by Pipeline vice-president Rob Whitwham and community coordinator Evan Saugstad came the day after Spectra president Doug Bloom held a massive telephone town hall with people from across northern BC. According to Whitwham, the company views consultation as key despite the very preliminary state of the pipeline. “We’ve been doing a lot of internal work on the corridor we’re proposing to bring LNG to Prince Rupert, but at Spectra our strategy has been and continues to be starting engagement early. We think you need to set up the project properly at the very beginning... The key is early engagement, listening to people and seeing how best to alter or proceed with the project,” he said, noting that feedback so far has been good. “I’m delighted with how positive the response has been. We’re in the early days and don’t expect it will be a cake walk by any means, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised with how positive the reception has been.” Right now Spectra is looking at three possible routes for the pipeline, with the split being around the Cranberry Junction. One of the lines is entirely on land while the other two include marine pipelines, something Whitwham says the company is very experienced at doing. Regardless of which route is chosen, the route will be mostly in the wilderness and will not be running near many municipalities.

Ridley donates $10,000 to museum Noise a concern Contributed The Northern View Ridley Terminals Inc. has announced that it is donating $10,000 to the Museum of Northern British Columbia to assist the museum with major repairs to its HVAC systems. In the late 1990’s the Museum of Northern BC expanded its exhibits and community programming by moving into the Chatham Village Building. At the same time the museum installed a new HVAC systems to provide stable temperature and humidity for its worldclass artifact collections. Unfortunately this year, these systems has had a number of significant and costly repairs that the museum couldn’t cover out of its annual operating budget. “Ridley Terminals’ very generous donation will ensure the safekeeping of the museum’s important collections and will help sustain the museum as the community’s anchor tourism Contributed photo attraction” said museum director Ridley Terminals Inc. corporate affairs manager Michelle Bryant presents $10,000 cheque to Museum of Northern BC Director Robin Weber.

Going the distance to prevent spills

Here’s another thing I can tell you — there are no absolutes in life, and that also applies to the pipeline industry. With the Gateway pipeline, we have gone to incredible lengths — extensive geotechnical investigation, special pipe design, tunnels and deep burials — to avoid any possibility of a spill. At the end of the day, however, we can’t guarantee zero spills. No one can. That’s why we’ve also mapped out detailed contingency plans in the areas of preparation and response in the very unlikely event of a spill along the pipeline route. To start with, we announced in July that we will add nearly 100 remotely operated isolation valves along the Gateway twin pipelines, bringing the total to 264 — and we’re continuously updating their locations to ensure optimal placement. That means our control-centre operations staff, and remote pump station employees all

Because all our remote pump stations are also staffed 24/7, response to a potential spill will begin immediately. With response equipment stored at those pump stations, our manager of engineering Ray Doering tells me that at least half a dozen local operations staff, joined by additional personnel and local trained response contractors, would be mobilized and attempt to establish containment of any potential leak as soon as possible, based on accessibility.

Continued from page 1 In the report it is noted that nearby residents could be impacted by increased noise, but that construction would be limited in the evening and on weekends when practical, that a website or e-mail system would be set-up to advise people of night time construction or construction activities, and that work is underway in the background with CN and the City to make the crossings near the ferry terminal and across the highway anti-whistling crossings. As well, the report notes that the road connecting Fairview Terminal and Ridley Island would remove approximately 1,570 truck movements upon completion of Phase One and up to 2,500 truck movements after Phase Two from the streets in Prince Rupert. Public comments can be received by Nov. 16, 2012.

It is up to Spectra to deliver a permitted pipeline for construction, with the Is dotted and the Ts crossed, by the end of 2014,” explained Whitwham.

GET WORKING - Part 1 - The return of tourism growth

In conjunction with the B.C. Jobs Plan, the Prince Rupert Northern View and Prince Rupert partners will be launching an ongoing series of articles highlighting employment in the area. The series will focus on the key future sectors of employment, as well as the present. From how to get a job to how to plan for a career, to how to transition to another career, we will endeavour to point out the truly exciting career choices and business opportunities for Prince Rupert and B.C. that lay ahead... and those that are available right now. PART ONE TOURISM JOBS

Tourism accounts for approximately $200 million to the Prince Rupert economy and hundreds of jobs. “In just the three months of our Prince Rupert Visitor Study

in 2007, we know that tourism brought us $52 million in revenue and hundreds of jobs. Estimates for gross revenue to the community for an entire year range as high as $200 million. Almost all of our business community is sustained at least in part by tourism,” Tourism Prince Rupert CEO Bruce Wishart told The Northern View. “The value of tourism needs to be measured by the many things that make a difference in our lives. It offers everything from entry-level summer jobs to work in valuable trades.” British Columbia’s tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the BC tourism industry’s human resource association.

annual real GDP ($2002) of more than $6.4 billion in 2010, ahead of forestry, mining, oil and gas extraction, and agriculture. Tourism and hospitality generated $13.4 billion in annual revenue in 2010. Overall, between 2004 and 2010, industry revenues grew by a total of 25.5 per cent, representing an average annual growth rate of 4.2 per cent. The provincial government’s Gaining the Edge: A Five-year Strategy for Tourism in British Columbia targets revenue growth of five per cent a year that will top $18 billion in tourism spending by 2016. The fastest growing sectors for tourism job growth over the next decade are expected to be recreation and entertainment and travel services. There are an estimated 17,943 tourism-related businesses across the province, employing

about 260,000 workers, or 10.8 per cent of B.C.’s total labour force of 2.4 million people. More than 80 per cent of tourism’s new job openings are projected to come in Food and Beverage Services (43,410 openings), Recreation and Entertainment (20,530 openings) and the Accommodation sector (18,920 openings). “After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is poised to expand,” said Arlene Keis, Chief Executive Officer of go2. “Labour shortages are already being felt in places like Northern B.C., the Thompson Okanagan and in the Rockies regions. By 2016, the crunch will be more acute throughout the province.” Career section of http://www. Tourism Labour Market Strategy: http://

North Coast

More consultation was needed on ocean fertilization dump... If you do a quick news search for the word Haida, there is certainly no shortage of hits following news that 100 tonnes of iron mix was dumped into the ocean this summer. The dump has raised eyebrows not just in Canada or the US but has gone international (for example, a story on the subject appeared in the Oct. 20 online version of the Bangkok Post in Thailand). And while the project has brought a huge amount of attention to Haida Gwaii and the Haida, it’s important to note that the funding came from the Massett Band Council while the Council of the Haida Nation were quick to distance themselves from it. Reaction to the dump seems largely negative, to be honest. But the reaction isn’t to the science itself, in fact it seems to have done what it was meant to do given the size and scope of the plankton bloom that is being seen in the Pacific. The reaction is more so to

the lack of consultation or public feedback to the multi-million dollar project. Here in Canada, Environment Canada officials say they were aware that the proponents were considering going forward with the dumping of the iron, but it was preliminary discussions and no application was received or permit approved. But, say those who carried out this ocean fertilization, the actual disposal of the iron took place in international waters where Environment Canada has no jurisdiction. And, they say, the amount dumped was small enough to not break any UN laws - something the three lawyers involved with the Haida Salmon Restoration Co. will attest to. And this is where we get into the tricky question of legal ability versus moral obligation. It’s something that is coming up more and more it seems. If the company were legally allowed to do something, should

they be doing it without first talking to those who would be impacted. Let’s face it, something that happens in the Pacific Ocean is going to impact more than just the people of Haida Gwaii or the

people of Canada for that matter. For years we’ve heard the need to consider the impact and effect on others with any project, and this simply did not do that. With so much going on around

the north coast related to potential environmental impacts and the need to consult and consider those who would be impacted, I am a bit shocked that this was carried out the way it was

il refinery debate be damned, she just wanted a job. Shortly after David Black wrapped up his discussion over a proposed Kitimat oil refinery at the Lester Centre a couple of weeks ago, she walked up to him to relay her frustrations with her job search. Black, who has a little pull here at The Northern View, walked up to Shaun Thomas and myself to inquire if there was any way we could assist her. Dutifully, but more importantly, sincerely, we said we’d do whatever we could. Although networking and making oneself visible when looking for work is important, it is just a first step. The next step is probably more important — the resumé. “Absolutely, we’d like to help,” I said. “Could you drop off a resumé tomorrow?” She said she would and I handed her my business card.

Northern BC mobile application helps visitors tour region It’s been awhile since I talked about the Travel Northern BC mobile web application. With consumers increasingly doing their travel research online, and using their smart phones while traveling, northern BC communities are investing to take advantage of this trend. Indeed, though it might not have happened yet, the day will come when online marketing will be almost the only form of marketing. Certainly this day has drawn closer in the North, and it’s now been a year since a new mobile application was launched by the Northern BC Tourism Association. The project started along the road to reality with a partnership between Tourism Prince Rupert, Tourism Dawson Creek, Tourism Prince George, Tourism Smithers, and Kermodei Tourism in Terrace.

Over the past year we’ve worked together to market the app. Part of this was in having businesses across the north promote the app with table cards, signs, window clings, and so on, but there were also radio campaigns, banners at Visitor Centres, other traditional

advertising, and even “wrap” advertising on a trailer that moved through the north this summer. And the promotion is working – the app has been downloaded over 5,000 times this year, so clearly visitors are making use of this new travel tool. The Northern BC app is just one example of how Tourism Prince Rupert is working with our partners in developing new ways of using online marketing. We’re working to stay current with social media, and building that audience. We’re still growing into the technology incorporated in the new TPR website launched last year, such as by adding more features to listings for individual members. It will still take some time for online marketing to completely replace traditional marketing, especially given the gaps in mobile service in northern BC, but these are the services that customers now demand.

u new business

Walmart holds grand opening in Rupert Square Mall By Shaun Thomas The Northern View Prince Rupert’s Walmart is now open for business. The former Zellers location in the Rupert Square Mall has been completely renovated and redesigned to accommodate the new Walmart, which includes a grocery section, a photo lab, a pharmacy and other departments found in stores across North America. “Our Prince Rupert Walmart is a onestop shop. We have everything people need, and our goal is to save people money so they can live better,” said manager Andy Mills in a ceremony held before the store opened on Oct. 19. “We want to provide customers with the excellent service Walmart is renowned for. We want them to come in and get their daily needs and get those things they may not need daily....We want to provide them with the ultimate shopping experience.” Work on the new store has been ongoing for a number of months, something district manager Ray Holden recognized during his speech which likened the work on the store to the famous 1972 Summit Series between Canada and Russia. “I was here about a week ago thinking, ‘We’re down three games, are we going to pull this off ?’. When I was here yesterday I was thinking, ‘It’s the final game, we’re going into the third period and we’re down a couple. Are we going to pull this off ?’,” he said. “When I walked in this morning, magic happened.”

Mayor Jack Mussallem was on hand to welcome Walmart to the community. “A lot of people in town are very excited about this. You were able to set-up in, I believe, record time... I am thankful you are one of the dozen new businesses that have opened in Prince Rupert over the last 20 months. I am thankful you are able to employ 55 people in Prince Rupert in direct jobs, and create some indirect jobs,” he said. As well as cake and a ribbon cutting, Mills announced that Walmart would be donating $1,000 to five community groups including the SPCA, the Prince Rupert Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, the Prince Rupert Regional Community Foundation, the Friendship House and the North Coast Health Improvement Society. The store was one of 10 new Walmarts being opened on Oct. 19, with more than 100 people lined up in the rain waiting for the doors to open.

Controversial ocean fertilizing plan under investigation By Shaun Thomas The Northern View A plan to fertilize the waters off Haida Gwaii has brought international attention to the island and the Old Massett council. During the summer, the Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation, with a $2.5 million backing from the Old Massett council, dispersed 100 tonnes of iron sulphate mix into the Pacific Ocean in order to encourage plankton to bloom. With a plankton bloom, the hope was help revive the salmon runs previously seen on the islands. “The Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation is studying and developing methods that may be useful in restoring the growth of phytoplankton and thereby sustain and enhance the

production of all marine life and create a sustainable economy for Old Massett,” said the company. Those involved in the project say the work is “lawful, on-going, self-funded and in compliance with the Law of the Sea Convention and Canada’s Ocean Act”. According to project leader John Disney, the dump took place in international waters and was not significant enough to break international or United Nations law. The group also says it consulted with government officials, including Environment Canada, and consulted with three different lawyers about the project before the ship carrying the iron left the dock. Officials with Environment Canada acknowledge they knew about the plan, but Environment Minister Peter Kent was not made aware of the project until

this week. “Environment Canada was not asked to approve this apparent violation of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act,” Kent said in the House of Commons on Oct. 19. Speaking to regional media on Oct. 19, Skeena – Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen said the government doesn’t quite know what to make of this. “The government gave an answer that seemed both neutral and negative at the same time... There is certainly no policy they have on this geoengineering across the board and if they felt it was illegal or wanted to press charges I’m sure they would,” he said, noting that he met with the council this summer and was informed of their idea but not when it may happen. “People involved with the

project thought they were open with the government in talking about their plans. If you’re talking with someone about your plans and they don’t say ‘you shouldn’t do this’ or ‘you can’t do this’ or ‘there will be consequences’ then [proponents] are shocked about the reaction from the feds, which I wouldn’t say is coherent right now... If there were real concerns about this when it was first brought up, the feds would not have let that ship leave dock. They did, which I am sure in some part is condoning this action.” Cullen also said he does not at all believe that anyone involved knowingly did anything wrong, and said this international attention-grabbing incident should speak to how the current government has handled the pacific fishery. “The fact that this is the one

grabbing all of the attention, the fact that this is the one that the Massett council chose to promote is more of a reflection of frustration of other proposals that keep getting shot down by the government claiming that there is no money or no help. It is pretty frustrating,” he said. The Council of the Haida Nation distanced themselves from the project. “The Hereditary Chiefs Council and the Council of the Haida Nation are in no way involved in artificial fertilization through dumping of iron compounds in the ocean around Haida Gwaii. The consequences of tampering with nature at this scale are not predictable and pose unacceptable risks to the marine environment,” read a statement, signed by Council of the Haida Nation president Guujaaw.

u Fairview management closed

New provider By Martina Perry The Northern View Fraser Street has one more empty storefront, as Fairview Management is no longer operating in Prince Rupert. David Hurford, the communication director for Community Living British Columbia (CLBC) said he couldn’t go into detail about the terms and conditions of the contract with Fairview Management because it was a contractual arrangement, however he did say there was an external review of Fairview Management prior to the decision. “We do external reviews of agencies from time to time... based on feedback we receive from families. It’s a common occurrence. We are very sensitive to what families are saying to us about the quality of care to work with them and make sure the standards are high,” explained Hurford. “The agreement that exists does allow for the contract to be terminated at anytime and CLBC has chosen to exercise that option.” Thompson Community Services will take over for Fairview Management and offer all the same services. “We’re going to stand back and take a look at things and if we can make some suggestions for improvements or we think a program can offer more by changing, then that’s what we’ll do,” Bob Cornish, CEO of Thompson Community Services, said. “We’re very confident that they’re going to be responsive and sensitive in meeting [individuals] needs,” Hurford said. To comply with that, the new service provider has moved most of the previous employees to the local Thompson Community Services office,. “We’ve brought over as many of the Fairview employees as we could, for the sake of continuity and for quality of service to the individuals,” Cornish said. The new office for Thompson Community Services is located in the Ocean Centre Mall.

u Public forum planned

City planner discusses waterfront land usage plan By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

Prince Rupert city planner Zeno Krekic was the guest of the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Oct. 17, and spoke about the Waterfront East Land Use Plan. Before going into the different areas of the waterfront, Krekic spoke about property ownership and the role it plays in potential development. For instance, he said, there was a lot of people during the public consultation period that spoke about waterfront access west of the Lightering Dock, but that land is owned by CN and out of the City’s jurisdiction. That being said, Krekic outlined the seven sections the eastern waterfront had been split into: Millenium/Kwinitsa, Cow Bay, Cow Bay East, Rushbrook, Seal Cove, Sourdough Bay and areas south. In the Millenium/Kwinitsa area, which encompasses Rotary Waterfront Park through to Cow Bay, Krekic said the priority was waterfront access, but that people also brought forward the idea of a parking lot for the Metlakatla Ferry dock.

In Cow Bay, Krekic outlined plans to extend Third Avenue and hook it back to the current roadway to eliminate reliance on the aging Cow Bay Bridge, and also said plans for the area would be heavily affected by the plans of the Prince Rupert Port Authority for the Atlin Uplands and the Cow Bay area. When it came to Cow Bay East, which includes the area from the marina to the fish plant, Krekic said part of the problem lies in the cost associated with the legally required remediation of old industrial sites for use as either commercial or residential properties. “It is a big irritant to me, a big irritant to council, and I would say an even bigger irritant to developers... There is a desire to bring residential into this area, which I think is a great idea and something you see more and more of in North America, but I am worried about how we could execute it because remediation of a site from industrial use to commercial use is one level but remediation from industrial use to residential use is another,” he said. “Cow Bay East is the next step in developing Cow Bay, and

the barb wire and fencing keep coming up in consultations.” For Rushbrook, Krekic discussed the desire to have a trail that could connect Kwinitsa to Seal Cove and provide more waterfront access. As for Seal Cove, Krekic called it an under utilized “gem in Prince Rupert”. “If Seal Cove is a gem, then I would say Sourdough Bay is a diamond,” said Krekic of the waterfront past Seal Cove leading toward the Grassy Bay area. “Unfortunately it is owned by the Federal Government, we have no jurisdiction, and nobody in the Federal Government wants to talk to us about using it.” Finally in the areas south, which run from beyond Grassy Bay to the bridge leading to Port Edward, Krekic said there is a lot of interest in recreational uses, ranging from trails to ziplines to canopy walks, and possible housing. “There is great opportunity for residential development in the area, including Miller Bay, but I think we are a long way from that,” he said, noting other feedback has suggested moving the Rod and Gun Club.

said Krekic in encouraging people to get involved in the process. “What I really want to do is to gather enough information from the community...Into how we can create guidelines and rules on the waterfront so we will have less

Rising Stars return

The Rising Stars Program officially kicked off Monday, October 9, 2012 with a dinner; the Prince Rupert & District Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to another successful season to the Rising Stars Program. Rising Stars is a networking mentorship program- a partnership between the Chamber of Commerce and Northwest Community Collegethat matches college students with

mentors in the business community. The Rising Stars become honorary chamber members for five months and attend chamber events with their mentor. The goal is to encourage students to remain in the community after graduation by assisting them to form connections with in the business community and introducing them to the employment and entrepreneurial

opportunities available once they complete their studies. “The Rising Stars program is one of the great successes of the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce. The collaboration between the Chamber and Northwest Community College in partnership with various financial institutions, industry and local business is entering its eighth year. The goal is

to help develop the next generation of entrepreneurs and community leaders through a mentorship program. To date over 100 students have gone through the program” said Jason Scherr, President of the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce. “Rising stars and mentors in the past have both found the program to very rewarding,” he said.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month How to conduct a breast self examination 222 West First Ave, Prince Rupert


Early detection of breast cancer can improve survival rates and lessen the severity of treatment options. Routine mammograms are essential to catching signs of breast cancer early on but so can home-based breast exams. Over the years there has been some debate over the effectiveness of breast self-exams, or BSEs, is effective. Different breast cancer organizations have different views on the subject. Some studies have indicated that a BSE is not effective in reducing breast cancer mortality rates. Some argue that these exams also may put women at risk -increasing the number of potential lumps found due to uncertainty as to what is being felt in the breast. This can lead to unnecessary biopsies. Others feel that

a BSE is a good practice, considering that roughly 20 percent of breast cancers are found by physical examination rather than by mammography, according to The American Cancer Society takes the position that a BSE is an optional screening tool for breast cancer. For those who are interested in conducting selfexams, here is the proper way to do so. * Begin with a visual inspection of the breasts. Remove clothing and stand in front of a mirror. Turn and pivot so the breasts can be seen at all angles. Make a note of your breasts’ appearance. Pay special attention to any dimpling, puckering or oddness in the appearance of the skin. Check to see if there is any change in symmetry or size

of the breasts. * Continue the examination with hands placed by the hips and then again with your hands elevated overhead with your palms pressed together. * Next you will move on to a physical examination. This can be done either by reclining on a bed or the floor or any flat surface. The exam also can be done in the shower. To begin examining the breasts, place the hand and arm for the breast you will be examining behind your head. Use the pads of your pointer, middle and ring fingers to push and massage at the breast in a clockwise motion. Begin at the outer portion of the breast, slowly working inward in a circular motion until you are at the nipple. Be sure to also check the tissue under the breast

and by the armpit. * Do the same process on the opposite breast. Note if there are any differences from one breast to the other. If you find any abnormalities, mark them down on an illustration that you can bring to the doctor. Or if you can get an appointment immediately, draw a ring around the area with a pen so that you will be able to show the doctor directly where you have concern. It is a good idea to conduct a BSE once a month and not when menstruating, when breasts may change due to hormone fluctuation. Frequent examinations will better acquaint you with what is normal with your breasts and better help you recognize if something feels abnormal.

The pink ribbon has been synonymous with breast cancer for years. Nowadays, people rarely think twice when they see pink ribbons, having grown accustomed to the pink ribbon and what it symbolizes. Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been celebrated each year since 1985, and many other breast cancer awareness initiatives have been devised since then. While the pink ribbon may seem like it’s been in use for just as long, it was actually established only about 20 years ago. Ribbons have long symbolized something important. For decades, yellow ribbons have been used to alert others to soldiers at war or hostages that hadn’t yet come home. People often tie yellow ribbons around

trees at home until their service men and women came home safely. During the height of HIV/AIDS activism and awareness, red ribbons were worn to symbolize support for those with the disease. Although the pink ribbon evolved because pink expresses femininity, calm, health, and youth, the first breast cancer ribbon was actually peach. Charlotte Haley is credited with devising the first breast cancer ribbon in 1992. She was a breast cancer survivor and came from a family of women who also fought the disease. She created peach-colored loops at home and then distributed the ribbons at her local grocery stores. Haley encouraged people to wear the ribbons and contact legislators to demand more funding for

breast cancer research. An attached note was distributed with the ribbons stating, “The National Cancer Institute annual budget is $1.8 billion, only 5 percent goes for cancer prevention. Help us wake up our legislators and America by wearing this ribbon.” The same year Evelyn Lauder, senior corporate vice president for the Estee Lauder company, and Self magazine editor Alexandra Penney teamed up to produce a pink ribbon. It was distributed at makeup counters all across the country. The company collected more than 200,000 pink ribbon petitions asking the U.S. government for increased funding for breast cancer research. Although Lauder and Haley reached people on different levels, their goals were the same: To educate

the public on the lack of funds allotted to breast cancer research. Pink ribbons are now seen all over and have become the uniting force for millions of women who are facing breast cancer or supporting someone with the disease. In 1996, Nancy Nick created a blueand-pink ribbon to symbolize male breast cancer ribbons in honor of her late father. The ribbons remind others that breast cancer can affect men as well as women. Although you can see waves of pink every October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many people don their ribbons year-round. Great strides have been made with respect to breast cancer, but with about 225,000 new cases popping up each year in the United States alone, there is still work to be done.

Government’s denial of Petronas deal raises terminal questions By Todd Hamilton

the decision. “Petronas and Progress will work together to ensure that the minister has the necessary information to determine that the proposed acquisition of Progress would likely be of net benefit to Canada.” Tessa Gill, head of stakeholder management for the company’s Prince Rupert LNG export project, had said the company had plans, once government regulatory reviews are complete, to obtain initial construction permits in early 2014 and make the final investment decision which will pave the way to construction later that same year and the first deliveries to begin in 2018. Gill said the LNG project was expected to create 3,000 to 3,500 direct and indirect jobs during peak construction and 200-300 during operation. However, the entire project hinged on the federal decision whether or not Petronas could proceed with its multi-billiondollar takeover of Canadianowned Progress Energy which

The Canadian federal government’s rejection of Malaysian state-owned Petronas’ proposed $5.2 billion takeover bid of Canada’s Progress Energy could have dramatic consequences for Prince Rupert. Petronas Carigali Canada — a division of the Malaysian oil and gas giant — has actively been pursuing a liquid natural gas export site on Lelu Island. However, the decision to reject the deal — announced by Industry Minister Christian Paradis late Friday night — casts doubts on the project but not a death blow. Paradis said in his announcement that the government did not see a “net benefit” for Canada in the deal. In a statement issued early Monday, Petronas said they, along with Progress Energy Resources Corp. officials, will meet with Industry Canada to question the decision. The company has 30 days to appeal

has substantial natural gas holdings in northeast B.C. The project called for those natural gas reserves to be piped to Prince Rupert where Gill said the company would develop two LNG trains, a term used to describe a liquid natural gas plant’s liquefaction and purification facilities, at the Lelu Island site. The trains, which receive raw natural gas through the pipeline, purifies, condenses and cools the gas down to -160C for shipping. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty told the Globe and Mail that the Petronas-Progress deal is not dead. “There’s another period of time during which they can continue to have discussions and try to satisfy the concerns that the Department of Industry has,” Mr. Flaherty told CTV’s Question Period. Given the decision, it is uncertain if Petronas Carigali will go ahead with public open houses on Nov. 5 in Port Edward and Nov. 6 in Prince Rupert at the Lester Centre.

u Prince George to Prince Rupert

Greyhound looking at service cuts By Rod Link The Northern View Citing losses, Greyhound wants to cut its northwest bus service frequency. The company now runs 11 buses eastbound and 11 westbound each week for a total of 22 along Hwy16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert but should its reduction application be accepted, that frequency could drop to just one each way each day or 14 a week. In its application to the provincial Passenger Transportation Board, the bus company said it could reduce its BC losses by approximately $6.75 million if it was able to eliminate one route and cut service on 15 others. People who wish to comment on Greyhound’s plans have until Oct. 24 to contact the transportation board. Greyhound has been cutting service on routes elsewhere in Canada in the face of rising costs and dropping passenger numbers. The two routes Greyhound wants eliminated run overnight –

one west from Prince Rupert to Prince George and the other east from Prince George to Prince Rupert. The average passenger load on one is 10.5 and the other is 11, with both generating barely $2.30 of revenue per passenger mile. Greyhound BC passenger service manager Grant Odsen did note that the cuts requests would establish minimum levels of service and that the number of runs could increase. “We can just schedule more. We don’t have to apply,” he said. But Odsen did note that any increase in service depends upon an increase in the number of passengers and revenue. He did say that while the regional economy may be picking up, “we haven’t seen a big change in ridership up there.” Greyhound also said the number of people taking the Northern Health Authority’s Northern Health Connections bus service has also cut into its passenger base. That service, which runs from Prince Rupert to Prince George, into northeastern BC and

down to Vancouver, is heavily subsidized by the provincial government via a grant to the health authority. The round trip rate of $40 between Prince George and Terrace is for a service that runs each way four days a week. “The one good thing about the Northern Health Authority service is that you have to have a bona fide medical appointment,” Odsen acknowledged. Odsen said he realized the Greyhound application would affect people. “I do feel for the smaller communities to some extent and know they will feel cutoff. But we’re seeing a shift in demographics among a number of other things. Unfortunately, we need to make a business case,” he said. Skeena – Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen said he doesn’t want to see the cuts move ahead. “They’re looking to make a bad situation worse. It’s obviously a private company, but it’s also a part of our transportation network that is vital to what is going on in our communities both socially and

highway. We have asked for something similar in the House of Commons and the government has ignored us so far.”

u Education

Premier seeking 10-year agreement with BC teachers By Tom Fletcher Black Press Premier Christy Clark announced a review of teacher bargaining Wednesday, with a goal of reaching a 10-year agreement

that would put an end to decades of battles with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. Clark and Education Minister Don McRae acknowledged at a Vancouver news conference that changing the culture of

confrontation between the B.C. government and teachers won’t be easy, and vowed to put even the most contentious issues on the table for discussion. That includes class size and special needs support, key issues in contract disputes and

court actions in recent years. “Our first goal is long-term labour stability with teachers in British Columbia,” Clark said. “Our second goal is to improve how government interacts and works with the BCTF. These two

goals will require compromise on all sides of the table, including ours.” BCTF president Susan Lambert said she welcomes the review of the bargaining structure, but is skeptical about the latest promise.

Halloween fest support…

PRDTU outlines budget requests By Martina Perry The Northern View The Government of British Columbia has been gathering input from the public as part of the 2013 budget consultation, with Joanna Larson, president of the Prince Rupert and District Teachers Union, being one of many British Columbians to make suggestions. “As teachers, each day we imagine a better future for our students. We put enormous energy into cultivating the hearts, minds, and imaginations of our students. We need our government to make this commitment too, for all students in British Columbia,” Larson wrote on behalf of PRDTU. The first piece of input Larson included was calling on the government to increase the student-educator ratio in BC. Larson said there are 14 students per educator on average in Canadian classrooms, but that in

BC number increases as high as 17.7. “For BC to recover lost ground, and at a minimum meet the Canadian average student/educator ratio, we need 5,800 more full-time equivalent teachers at a cost of about $500 million. For BC to meet the Canadian average in terms of K-12 funding as a percentage of GDP we need an additional $609 million.” “Does this government have the ability to put an additional $1.109 billion into BC’s public schools? Absolutely, and we are calling on government to begin doing just that,” Larson said. Next, Larson called on the government to create fair taxation. “Today, the richest households in British Columbia pay the lowest overall tax rate. Students pay more in tuition than is collected in corporate taxes, and British Columbians pay more in MSP premiums than businesses

contribute through provincial corporate income tax. This is not a fair taxation plan,” Larson said. Larson said funding from the government toward independent or private schools should be redirected into public schools, so all students regardless of economic status have access to quality education. Another suggestion Larson made was to support the Coalition of Childcare Advocates of BC’s Early Care and Learning System proposal. “It is estimated that the Early Care and Learning proposal would cost $1.5 billion annually to fully implement for children under the age of six. The proposal is expensive, but we are in a position in our province where it may be more expensive not to implement such a strategy,” Larson wrote. PRDTU says there are many overlapping benefits to investing in public education and early learning and care.

economically, and therefore would be contributing more money into the economy. Rates of absenteeism would go down, and there would be health cost savings as a result of improved work/life balance,” Larson wrote.

u Highway of Tears families

Sense of optimism follows annual meeting with RCMP By DeLynda Pilot Black Press There was a bit more optimism in the room than usual during an annual meeting that includes family members of young women who went missing or were murdered along the Highway of Tears. The optimism comes after police announced on Sept. 25 that Bobby Jack Fowler was responsible for at least one of those murders and that he remains a suspect in other deaths. The break, after so many years, came as a result of improvements in DNA technology. Mary Teegee with Carrier Sekani Family Services said advances in technology combined with the tips that have been coming in to police is what is fuelling the families’ optimism. “The idea of today’s meeting is to remember the victims,” Insp. Gary Shinkaruk with EPANA, said. “Although we try to feel the true pain and utter despair they feel everyday, it’s good to get together.” He added they try to update

families as they can, but for some of them it has been decades with no idea what happened to their loved one. Over the nine years the annual meeting among the missing and murdered women’s loved ones has been taking place, it has evolved to include various support groups. On Wednesday, about 40 people were gathered together, 20 of whom were family members. Others represented organizations like Victim’s Services, the RCMP, Carrier Sekani Family Services and senior investigators with EPANA. Brenda Wilson, whose sister, Ramona, was 15 when she was murdered along the Highway of Tears, said it is heartening to see these organizations come together and collaborate in an effort to find answers. “It brings hope to us. We’re not doing this alone anymore,” she said. She said she knows the cases continue to be investigated, not just on a daily basis, but every second. Eighteen years ago, when her sister went missing, she said her

mom and her felt alone. Nicole Hoar was 25 when she went missing on June 21, 2002. “At this point I think they’ve made a lot of progress,” her dad, Jack, said, adding their were 1,500 tips for police to investigate after his daughter went missing. “They’ve gone through the chaff.” However he said there is still a lot of information required. He said he believes there is someone out there who knows something. Perhaps that person was afraid to come forward at the time of his daughter’s disappearance. “Now they might be more comfortable,” he said. Teegee said people uncomfortable talking to the police about what they know are welcome to call her office. “Any information is valuable. If someone is not comfortable, definitely contact our office, and we will follow up with that,” she said. Hoar was last seen hitchhiking west of Prince George, heading to Smithers. Educating young women about the dangers of hitchhiking is an example of one of the things the

Jack Hoar (Nicole Hoar’s dad); EPANA Insp. Gary Shinkaruk; Brenda Wilson (Ramona Wilson’s sister) and Mary Teegee with Carrier Sekani Family Services talked about the importance of the annual meetings between family members of women murdered along the Highway of Tears as well as a new sense of optimism. family members discuss during their meeting. In fact, the families forwarded 33 recommendations to the government in a bid to build a safer environment for young women. Teegee said, as of yet, not all of those recommendations have been realized. Meanwhile, the investigation

into Bobby Jack Fowler’s life continues. Shinkaruk said about 300 tips came in following their announcement. Tips on the other murders and disappearances continue to come in. “Even if you think it’s trivial, or it’s something you think we already know, please call,” he said.
