Quake rattles Rupert, Haida Gwaii

Port shuts down, evacuations follow tsunami warning

“We missed the bullet. We’re very, very fortunate.” - Carol Kulesha

By Martina Perry The Northern View

A 7.7 magnitude earthquake rattled the north coast on Saturday evening, with countless aftershocks following. Luckily. no injuries and or substantial damage was done. “We missed the bullet. We’re very, very fortunate. We’re taking it as a good opportunity to practice for something more severe,” Carol Kulesha, mayor of Queen Charlotte City, said. The earthquake occurred at 8:04 p.m. at the epicenter on Oct. 27, 139 kilometres south of Masset. The quake happened 17.5 kilometres below the surface. Although the earthquake happened 202 km away from Prince Rupert, many felt or noticed signs of it. The quake was felt as far inland as Chetwynd through the Pine Pass and as far south as Vancouver. Tsunami warnings were issued shortly after for Haida Gwaii and the north coast, as well as parts of central B.C.’s coast, Alaska and Hawaii. Local Emergency Services and the Prince Rupert Port Authority mustered at the Emergency Operations Command Centre at City Hall, where they closely monitored the situation. In Prince Rupert, emergency services blocked off access to low-laying and coastal areas, with an evacuation notice originally being put in place in those areas. The Prince Rupert Port Authority’s (PRPA) operations were also evacuated as a precaution. Port Edward residents living near the

shore and in low laying areas were notified to move to high grounds. Fortunately, because the earthquake was caused by the earth’s plates sliding horizontally across each other in a strikeslip action instead of the plates sliding vertically, the threat of a large tsunami was not likely. Shortly after 11 p.m. on Saturday, the centre ceased operations and Prince Rupert’s terminals, city, and harbour were deemed safe after the tsunami warning was downgraded to an tsunami advisory. The US Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed a 5.8 magnitude aftershock happened ten minutes after the initial quake, with over sixty smaller shocks

happening over the next day. The largest aftershock, a 6.3 magnitude, happened at 12:09 p.m. on Oct. 28 159 kilometres south-southwest of Masset. “I [haven’t been feeling aftershocks] but I’ve heard that others did,” Kulesha said. Fortunately no injuries or deaths during Saturday’s earthquake have been reported. “No one has required the ambulance. I’ve asked people to report back to me if the situation changed, and so far I’ve heard nothing,” Kulesha said on Sunday. Additionally, there haven’t been reports of any significant damage.

Slow warning worries Rupert QUAKE from Page 1

British Columbia’s emergency response team, Emergency Info B.C., is being criticized for what critics are calling a slow earthquake response. B.C.’s warning came 42 minutes after USGS warning.

GATEWAY perspectives

Hearing from all sides

In the spirit of honesty, I’d like to share some of my thoughts on last week’s protest. It seems a great many people believe Gateway will introduce oil tanker traffic to B.C.’s coastline for the first time. This is simply not true. Oil tankers have docked at Kitimat for a quarter-century, and refineries have been part of Vancouver’s port communities since the 1930s. In fact the first imports of petroleum to Vancouver date back to 1915. As well, after reviewing Gateway’s marine safety program, an

I’m from Prince George. Thankfully, we no longer have a one-industry economy here in B.C.’s North, but I’m sure many of us remember those uncertain days in the job market. Establishing the Gateway terminal at Kitimat, and linking Canada’s energy supply to the Pacific Rim, would continue the diversification of our region’s economy. That means job security and prosperity. It means a better future for B.C.’s North.

Everyone has a right to speak their mind, and we respect the opinions of those who have reservations about the Northern Gateway Project. In fact, we encourage the people of British Columbia to express their opinions — because that’s the best way to have an open, honest dialogue, and separate Gateway fact from fiction.

saying “overall she’s pleased with the response of emergency officials and local governments, but added that she won’t offer her own assessment of the response until after the review is complete. Bond also said that at least one government system may have had technical difficulties.” In Prince Rupert, first responders were very quick to react, however, a number of residents complained that there was no official warning. “I didn’t even know there was an earthquake until I talked to [his neighbour],” a 5th Ave. West resident said. “I heard nothing, I was sleeping.” The Northern View was among the first online to alert Prince Rupert to not only the confirmation of the earthquake but also the tsunami warning. Nearly 10,000 unique visitors logged into www. for its coverage and alerts.

By now, you’ve probably heard about last week’s sit-in at the Provincial Legislature in Victoria, calling for a halt to oil tanker traffic along B.C.’s coastline.

“As far as I’ve been able to determine there’s no major damage. People have lost things off of their shelves and I think some of the stores might have a bit of a clean up to do, but there’s no structural damage that has been reported,” Kulesha said. According to National Resources Canada, the Oct. 27 earthquake was the second largest in Canadian history, behind 1949’s 8.1 magnitude earthquake that also happened offshore of Haida Gwaii. The third largest Canadian earthquake occurred in 1970, hitting south of Haida Gwaii with a magnitude of 7.4. Although no major damage or tsunami occurred, response times by provincial officials are being heavily criticized. Kelli Kryzanowski, the B.C. manager of strategic initiatives for Emergency Management

B.C., told CBC she was pleased with the way local governments and individuals reacted to the quake and the tsunami threat. She said EMBC sent out thousands of phone calls, faxes and e-mails to first responders but was evasive why EMBC’s warning came some 42 minutes after a USGS warning. Any tsunami that would have developed from the Haida Gwaii earthquake would have already enveloped Prince Rupert in those 42 minutes. “After these types of events we always do an analysis and have discussion about what will be the best ways to further enhance. So at this point we’re just doing the post mortem on this, figuring, looking at what went well, some of the lessons we can learn, and then those discussions will take place down the road,” Kryzanowski said on CBC. Justice Minister Shirley Bond also is quoted by CBC

Port Edward wants more cops

POT NOT OVERLOOKED Prince Rupert RCMP executed their second search warrant of the month on Oct. 25 and netted 135 mature marijuana plants. Police said a male was taken into custody and later released following the raid on a house on the 1300 block of Overlook Street. The investigation is ongoing.

Corporal Dave Ryan was told by Port Edward mayor Dave MacDonald that there should be more police visibility in the community. “We would like to see a little more RCMP presence during the day. I know you come out at night, I hear it, but I think public relations is just as important as reactive responding,” said MacDonald at the Oct. 23 council meeting. “It is a perception that is going around... I know there have been a few instances where people don’t feel they got the service they felt they needed. “If you don’t get the results you from police, I want to know hear about it. I will come out here myself,” said the supervisor in charge of Port Edward, Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla. “I encourage my guys when they come on to jump in the car and drive out to Port Edward.” And more discussion with the RCMP is something both chief administrative officer Ron Bedard and mayor Dave MacDonald said needs to happen when there is something happening in Port Edward. “What I tell people in Port Edward is that you have to tell the police. Knowing of an incident and not reporting does not help,” he said, mentioning a lot of people will tell councillors what they see but not the RCMP. “When people come here I say ‘call the police’. People have been telling us things and then when we follow up it turns out there is no police file on the incident.” As for the bear problem, Ryan said the RCMP will handle the situation should the need arise. “To me public safety is far more important. The safety of a child or the safety of a community member...If there is an immediate danger to anyone, than police should come out and dispatch the bear,” he said.

with this seizure at this time, but the matter remains under investigation. In 2003, Canada implemented the new Precursor Control Regulations to respond directly to the increasing diversion of precursor chemicals to the clandestine manufacturing of illicit substances. The regulatory framework addresses the cross-border trafficking of precursor chemicals by requiring a license and a permit for all imports and exports of Class A precursor chemicals. The CBSA takes its border protection responsibilities very seriously, including the interdiction of controlled substances and precursor chemicals that can be used in the manufacture of synthetic drugs.

four precursor chemicals used to make drugs like methamphetamine, MDMA (ecstacy), and gamma-butyrolactone (date-rape drug). “This shipment illustrates that large quantities of chemicals, for use in the illicit narcotics industry, continue to be a threat to Canada and the CBSA,” said Dan Bubas, Chief of Operations for the CBSA in Prince Rupert. “This seizure has prevented the potential manufacture of thousands of kilograms of illegal drugs.” This is the third precursor chemical interception at Prince Rupert Port in the last two years.

In conjunction with the B.C. Jobs Plan, the Prince Rupert Northern View and Prince Rupert partners are publishing 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 TWO - THE RESUMÉ Nothing makes a prospective employer shake their head more than a poor resumé. Although only one component of the job search, a resumé can be the difference-maker. A

poor resumé can easily move the best candidate into the recycling pile — a great resumé could seal the deal. Later in this series we will discuss the not-sooften thought about the ongoing resumé, such as public behaviour, however for most job applicants, the resumé is the first impression an employer receives. “The biggest mistake people make is their resumé,” a Prince Rupert Human Resources manager told The Northern View. “I probably toss threequarters of the applicants out within 10 seconds of looking at their resumé. “That maybe isn’t right... and maybe I miss the odd good person... but that’s the way it is.” Kathy Bedard at the Hecate Strait Employment Centre in Prince Rupert said while a resumé isn’t the only factor involved in a job search, it is important.

“This is an area where I think a lot of people need help,” she said. “It’s amazing... what people leave out... like volunteer work and life skills.” Here are the TOP 10 tips for a winning resumé 1. THE BASICS: FORMATTING Like any good brand, your resumé needs to be eye-catching and effective. Choose a professional font, such as Arial or Times New

Roman, and ensure the font size is legible, generally 10-12 point, except for your name and headings which can be larger and bolded. Most hiring managers prefer an at-a-glance format, using bullet points rather than paragraphs, although ensure you keep your sections lined up and consistent throughout the document. Be cognizant of the length — 1-2 pages for

less experienced and non-management roles and 3 pages for seniorlevel applications. Also, proof read, proof read, proof read. Surveys have shown that as many as three out of four hiring managers will discard a resumé with as few as 2 typos. Don’t put your faith in spell- check; have others review and try reading from the bottom up to catch any additional errors.

2. REVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL OR FUNCTIONAL? THAT IS THE QUESTION. Most hiring managers prefer a reverse chronological format — listing the most recent job first with previous jobs following. This gives them a more fluid account of your career progression and typically highlights the most pertinent skills in greatest detail. This may not be the right format, however, if you have any breaks or gaps in employment or if you have a fragmented background with many jobs, professions or industries worked in a short time period. In this case, a functional resumé — summarizing key areas of experience — may be a better solution. Another option, however, is using a reverse chronological resumé and closing the gaps or fragments

in employment. For instance, if you did temporary work or education between permanent roles, list this information. Likewise, if you performed the same job function with several companies in a short time period, group this information together. For instance: Administrative Assistant, Company A, Company B, Company C 2007-2009. This answers some of the questions hiring managers will have about your experience and career progression as well as increase your chances of securing an interview. 3. HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH? When looking at levels of experience, how much should be included on a resumé? For older job seekers who fear age discrimination, you don’t need to include your full career summary. See RESUMÉ , Page 17

In Brief

By Martina Perry

Bark, bark bark for dog park Prince Rupert residents have increasingly been using Doug Kerr field as an unofficial dog park for the community, and many are hoping the city will officially convert it into one. City council looked at turning the field, and other locations around town, into a dog park in 2011, and asked staff to research implementable options. Gord Howie, city manager, expects a report on a dog park to come to council by the end of November.

It will be a fine if you walk there Since CN blocked public access to the western area of the waterfront, they will now be monitoring the area. “Community members are not allowed to even walk down there, yet alone drive without a port pass,” Judy Carlick-Pearson, Prince Rupert city councillor, said. People could be ticketed for trespassing. The city will be meeting with CN to discuss whether the community can still access the beach adjacent to the Lightering Dock and if they have future plans for public access at their portion of the harbour waterfront.

City thanks Charlotte Rowse The city will be sending a letter of thanks to Charlotte Rowse, a dedicated local volunteer who is responsible for the care and maintenance of planters in the community.

Airport cruise ship task force Mayor Jack Mussallem asked council to consider setting up a task force to explore the feasibility of serving small cruise ship passengers through the Prince Rupert Airport. Small cruise ships may choose to drop off and receive a load of passengers at the airport to save them from traveling the entire coast of British Columbia each week. “This would increase aircraft and passenger traffic at the airport and on the ferry and buses, creating more local employment,” Mussallem said.


Chemical spill clock ticking at Watson Island By Shaun Thomas The Northern View The company hoping to convert Watson Island in Prince Rupert from a run-down pulp mill to a export terminal says work on the site needs to be done much sooner than later. “If we do not get the mill remediated in the next 12 to 18 months, there will be a spill of some kind that will make remediating the site unrealistic... The cost of remediating the site will cancel out any economic benefit if we don’t work fast,” said Watson Island Development Corporation (WatCo) chief operating officer Tanner Elton, noting that the mill was never properly shut down and a number of tanks are still filled with chemicals. “The clock is ticking. We’re working against time.” The company plans to tear most of the old pulp mill buildings located on the approximately 300 acre island down to the ground, saving some building and structures like warehouses and water treatment tanks for re-purposing, and create a logistics and export facility. The plan calls for light industrial and ancillary uses near the entrance, significant bulk storage on the site, bulk liquid storage for products like Canola oil and improvements to an existing concrete dock that can currently handle two handymax ships at a time. There are also plans for a rail loop around Watson Island to carry the goods. Destruction of the former mill, which was left with equipment like computers, chairs tools and food still on-site, is expected to take 18 months to complete. But there are challenges. Along with outstanding legal challenges by former owners Sun Wave

WatCo COO Tanner Elton said there may be as little as 12 to 18 months before chemical contamination may make the site unviable for remediation. Forest Products about the ownership of Watson Island, WatCo estimates that the cost to clean up previous contamination to be between $47 million and $200 million. Included in that contamination is 2.3 million cubic metres of hog fuel wood chips used in the creation of pulp - covering 70 acres of the site, and Elton notes that it would take one train per day for three years to remove. WatCo, has reached a tentative agreement to purchase Watson Island for $5.5 million, with $5 million going to the City of Prince Rupert and $500,000

going to the District of Port Edward. The sale is contingent on the resolution of the pending legal action and the development of a remediation plan. The City of Prince Rupert took ownership of the site following a tax sale after Sun Wave Forest Products failed to pay taxes owed. The company held an open house to gather feedback on the plans last week at the Lester Centre of the Arts. WatCo is comprised of Colonial Coal, Hillsborough Resources, the Lax Kw’alaams First Nation and the Metlakatla Development Corporation.

North Coast

What would have happened?


he north coast dodged a bullet this weekend, there is simply no other way to put it. When a magnitude 7.7. earthquake, the second largest in Canadian history, hits and there is no significant damage or injuries you have to count yourself lucky. I was sitting at home watching the Simpsons when I first heard a rattling sound, then noticed that the TV and indeed the whole house was shaking. Immediately I knew there had been an earthquake, and a sizeable one based on the amount and duration of shaking taking place. Knowing that everyone in the house and the house itself was fine, my mind switched from chilling-on-the-couch mode into full-blown reporter mode. The first thing I did was to go on to the Canadian Earthquake website to see what had happened, only to find out there was nothing on there. A visit to the US Geological Survey website confirmed that there had been an earthquake 139 kilometres south

of Masset on Haida Gwaii - why a US government body had the information about a Canadian earthquake out before our own government is still a bit of a mystery. Confirming that I wanted to check with the folks on Haida Gwaii. There was no information, and is still no information, to be had on the website of the Skeena - Queen Charlotte Regional District, so I called up Queen Charlotte mayor Carol Kulesha. Or at least I tried. For the first half hour or so after the quake, phone coverage was hit and miss. On my cell phone, and occasionally on my land line, the response after dialing a number was that all circuits were busy so try your call again later. Can’t imagine that would be a good thing to hear if there were an emergency resulting from the quake. But eventually I got through and found out things were alright, so it was on to the local scene.

Again, there was not and has not been an update to the City of Prince Rupert website. In fact there is nothing on the website at all about the earthquake. Under emergency contacts there is only 911 and the BC Emergency contact number. What we at the Prince Rupert Northern View found out about the local response came through our contacts. Michael Gurney, who was helping coordinate the emergency response, called the office to explain about the emergency response centre set up in City Hall. A quick call to Const. Matt Ericson got us the information about evacuations in the low lying areas. The Civic Centre being set-up as a potential emergency shelter was discovered through a contact on Facebook. When the operations centre closed up shop and everything was declared safe, that information came on the Twitter feed. In this case social media played a much more important role in the

dissemination of information than hearing it from the horse’s mouth, so to speak, but there must be a better way to get information out to the public. We here at the Prince Rupert Northern View are happy to be the place people can go for the latest news and information, and thousands of people turned to our site during the earthquake for information and updates, but when it comes to emergency broadcasting the City needs to step up their game and make

sure everyone is aware of what is happening, when it’s happening and how it’s happening in the event of an emergency. And relying on the internet, an entity based on fibre-optic cable and electricity, can’t be the go-to place as both are likely to be lost in the event of a major quake. I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if the shake had been larger and the tsunami warning resulted in a tsunami...

Little new in B.C. Liberal revival, rejections rule the day


.C. Liberal delegates gathered for their convention on the weekend at the Chateau Whistler, the same luxury hotel where Gordon Campbell fired up the troops in 2008. Back then the advertising slogan was “Keep BC Strong.” Unveiled at Premier Christy Clark’s pre-election pep rally: “Together. Building BC.” This slight change hints at the big difference. Campbell led a front-running party to a third straight majority, while Clark is a struggling underdog pleading for unity to turn back an NDP tsunami. Hence “Free Enterprise Friday,” a discussion open to non-party members. Clark began with an upbeat speech urging party members to “reach out our arms, open the tent and be as big as we can possibly be.” So did they? Dashing between three concurrent sessions, I missed a fair amount of it, but there were some provocative suggestions to appeal to those inclined to support the resurgent B.C. Conservatives. An accountant spoke to a packed room

about the growing unfunded of confronting the labour liability of public sector movement, ritual combat that pensions, most of which are seems to be an inescapable still of the “defined benefit” part of B.C. elections. variety.

Again, there is no actual the talking stage. change on the horizon. The resolutions continued the theme Delegates rejected another motion that

would have made membership in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation optional. This would have been a declaration of war on B.C.’s most militant union, just as Clark and Education Minister Don McRae embark on a long-shot bid to end the decades of confrontation that have defined that relationship since teachers were relegated to the industrial union model of labour relations. There was a brief debate on a motion to scrap the carbon tax, sponsored by northern members who see it as unfairly punitive on those who endure cold weather and long highway drives for themselves and the goods they need to have trucked in. This was rejected too, after delegates were reminded that the tax now takes in more than $1 billion annually that is used to reduce business and personal income taxes. The good news for Clark is that the 2012 convention was a high-energy, well-attended event that contradicts the notion of a party in disarray. The bad news is, nothing has really changed.

Marl Brown wins Annual Walter Smith Visionary Award On Monday it was my privilege to present the sixth annual Walter Smith Visionary Award, created to recognize the pioneers and visionaries of tourism in Northern British Columbia. Marl Brown came from Alberta in 1957 to work as a mechanic for the Royal Canadian Army at Mile 245 of the Alaska Highway. He, and his wife Mavis, must have been confirmed northerners from the very beginning, because a few years later, in 1961, the Browns opened Prophet River Esso Service at Mile 245, and ran it until moving to Fort Nelson in the mid-1970s. In Fort Nelson he took care of the municipal water supply until he retired in 1996. Yet in many ways it’s wrong to say that Marl Brown retired. It’s probably more accurate to say that working for the municipality was getting in the way of his work at the Fort Nelson Heritage Museum. The Fort Nelson Historical

Society had been registered as a society in 1973, yet the struggle to achieve the society’s dream of building a museum had been a long one. Like many small societies, the Fort Nelson group was creative in their fundraising efforts. One of the more creative ideas, on Apr. 17, 1982, was to hold an Old Timer’s Dance where tickets cost $100 each but also bought a log to help build the museum and had the donor’s name enshrined on the museum’s honour roll. Marl Brown (and his beard) was already an important and well-respected figure in Fort Nelson. He was already the figurehead of a movement to create a local museum. But, unbeknownst to him, he was about to become a legend that night. Because as the night wore on, at that well-attended Old Timer’s Dance, somebody yelled, “Hey Brown, how about auctioning off your beard!”

Hanson (Olafson), Elizabeth Frances Born on September 25, 1929 in New Westminster, BC, passed away in Coquitlam October 20, 2012. Predeceased by her husband Brian Hanson: she is survived by her daughter Debbie and sons Chris (Christy) and David (Joanne): grandchildren Brittany, Stefani, Melissa, Simone, Jessie, Hayley and Corbin: brothers George (Edna) and Karl Olafson. No service will be held as per France’s wishes. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Prince Rupert or the Canadian Cancer Societyare greatly appreciated.

After a full and happy life Maddelena Mezzanotte passed away peacefully on October 25th, 2012 in Prince Rupert B.C. Lena is survived by her husband Giovanni Mezzanotte of Prince Rupert, sister Nina Magaldi (Vince) of Kelowna, daughters Jan van der Meer (Jake), Eva Mezzanotte (Pete), and two sons, Mike Mezzanotte (Christine), and Tony Mezzanotte. Lena was also extremly proud of her five grandchildren John Mezzanotte(Kristin), Joel Mezzanotte (Sandi), Dylan Goffic, Ryley Goffic, and Kale Goffic. Lena’s two great grandchildren Oliva Mezzanotte and Zoey Mezzanotte also lit up her life. A special thank you to the doctors and nurses at the hospital who took such good care of Lena during this difficult time. A service will be held for Madelena at the Annunciation Church on November 1st, 2012 at 2 PM. All family and friends are welcome to join us.

In 1992, Marl was awarded the Canada 125 medal, which recognizes Canadians who have made a significant contribution to their fellow citizens, to their community, and to Canada. When asked to describe Marl Brown to the Vancouver Sun a couple of years ago, one longtime resident said simply, “Marl Brown is Fort Nelson, and Fort Nelson is Marl Brown.” But he’s really much more than that. Stories of the iconic Marl Brown circulate amongst visitors who have traveled through Northern BC. That may well encourage others to travel the same road, and I’ll wager that those folks end up visiting all of our communities. That’s how it works. It really is that simple.

Council stands firm on permissive tax hike stance By Martina Perry The Northern View Prince Rupert city council voted to move forward with making groups pay 20 per cent of their municipal tax bill in 2013 until 2015, despite requests from two local groups to reconsider. “We hear that people are hurting, but so is the city,” councillor Anna Ashley said at the Oct. 22 council meeting. Jamie Malphus, president of the Prince Rupert Curling Club, made a presentation to council earlier this month asking them to reconsider, saying the club is on a tight budget and requires lots of maintenance. Malphus said increasing membership fees could impact club numbers. Ashley calculated it would be $2 more per month for each member to cover the increase. “Sometimes people are going to have to pay a little bit more to be involved in things,” she said.

The Friendship House Association of Prince Rupert sent a letter to council asking them to reconsider, stating they are going through financial hardship and have experienced many government funding cut backs. In response to that, Ashley said it’s not an acceptable practice to cover the cost of funding cut backs. Mayor Jack Mussallem argued the city’s overall tax base has shrunk, and the city needs to find the lost revenue somewhere. “Last year we lost the J.S. McMillan fish plant, this year we lost the Royal Fish Plant. There is less on the tax roll the City of Prince Rupert… can draw from.” Councillor Joy Thorkelson said giving out permissive tax exemptions is the same as giving out a grant. “Even though it’s a lesser grant, it’s still a large contribution from the city to those organizations,” Thorkelson said.

9th Ave. East improvement project will continue until 2013 By Martina Perry

“The residents

The Northern View Residents living on 9th Avenue East near McBride Street will be dealing with a partially unpaved road this winter, as the City of Prince Rupert isn’t expecting to have the water line and sewer line rebuild projects finished until 2013. The projects began in May with workers planning to rebuild both lines originally put in approximately 100 years ago. “There was a lot of infiltration in the sewer line, which was surcharging our downstream sewer system,” Bill Horne, general manager of engineering, public works and development services for the city, said. Since the sewer line needed to be replaced, and there had been issues with the water line, the city planned to do both projects together. The line replacements were financially possible this year, after staying on the city’s todo list for approximately five years. The water line installation for the

have been very patient.” - Bill Horne

first half of the project is complete, with the city continuing to work on the storm and sanitary sewers. Workers installed a storm drainage, so sewer infiltration won’t happen again. But there’s still lots to do. “It’s a full rehabilitation which means improvements to the road bed, asphalt, curbing, sidewalks, everything we can do,” said Horne. Only the bottom portion of the street will be paved this year, but the city will manage the unpaved section over the winter. “The residents have been very patient,” said Horne. The project’s budget is approximately $1 million and is on track. The estimated completion date of the project is in spring of 2013.

Over a month ago, the Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) approved an environmental assessment of the Westview Terminal Redevelopment Project proposed by the Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group (Pinnacle), which required the company to implement mitigation measures related to air quality and noise. Andy Cook, manager of planning and design, and Ken Veldman, director of public affairs for PRPA, made a presentation to Prince Rupert city council last week to answer questions regarding the monitoring process that will be taken at Pinnacle’s planned export terminal in Prince Rupert. For the port to know if they are monitoring dust properly, they need a baseline of ambient conditions. The Port will bring in a mobile air monitoring laboratory next month to gather that baseline data to establish what the condition of dust in the area is prior to starting the project. “We’re working to finalize the best locations for these dust fall canisters around the perimeter of the site,” Cook said. Councillor Gina Garon pointed out an issue with the mobile monitoring system — it would only be monitoring dust levels at the Westview site. Cook argued if levels were acceptable on site, they would be in neighbourhoods nearby. “Common sense tells me not to presume

Martina Perry photo

Ken Veldman and Andy Cook from the Port made a presentation to city council on Oct. 22. that, especially if the wind is blowing and decides to pick it up and scatter it somewhere else,” Garon said. Councillor Joy Throkelson asked how the Port would make sure that daily contamination is not over the established levels. “If you put a canister out for a month and average its contents [people living nearby won’t be happy]. If one day their house is full of dust and they’re coughing and sputtering and the next 29 day they weren’t, that one day is going to be the day they’re concerned

about,” she said. Cook said the Port will amplify data collection in the early stages of the project and will supplement the canisters with handheld equipment for spot checks. They will do this during construction and operations, as well as different weather scenarios. Port reps said Pinnacle will be taking measures to reduce dust including using enclosed equipment when possible, and using good cleaning practices. Another measure was noise levels for nearby neighbourhoods.

Like dust levels, noise will be monitored with handheld devices around the perimeter during the construction and operation phases and compared to an ambient noise baseline. Furthermore, Pinnacle will limit their construction activities to be within the city’s bylaw of 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Port is also aiming to eliminate noise during operations. “Pinnacle will prepare their operating schedule to have the least potential conflict with nearby residents,” Cook said, encouraging people to contact the Port if there are disturbances. If people complain about noise in surrounding neighbourhoods, the Port said they will bring equipment to that area and check levels. Additionally, the company will have noise-blocking measures on equipment and will have a no-idling policy. The port would be responsible for making sure Pinnacle maintains these standards, and if they don’t follow through the Port could shut down operations until they do. “I am looking forward to production of different industries, and I know you’re making them safe. If we don’t have these industries, the people will have to pay more taxes. This way we can work on bringing taxes down,” Councillor Nelson Kinney said. Port reps also answered questions on fire prevention measures, waterfront access, which they say is high on their list, and appearance of the waterfront from the sea.

The City of Prince Rupert has done its part to cease trains from whistling at two railway/road crossings near the waterfront. After equipment to reduce noise is installed, Transport Canada will make the decision to allow the cessation, or not. After receiving many complaints about train whistling, the City of Prince Rupert, Maher Terminals, and the Prince Rupert Port Authority commissioned AECOM to do a safety assessment on five rail crossings along the waterfront. Of the five, two were identified as the most nuisance causing. The first identified is the main railway/road crossing on Hwy 16 located near the old J.S. McMillan Fish Plant and the second at the BC Ferries railway/ road crossing. “Equipment is being installed at the Hwy 16 railroad crossing. The port and CN have committed the resources to do those upgrades at that crossing, and as well they’re doing some work on the BC Ferries crossing,”

New railway crossing lights, pictured above, are just some of the new equipment being installed near the crossings. For more on the new equipment, look in Friday’s Northern Connector. Robert Grodecki, corporate administrator for the city, said, mentioning part of this will be installing fencing around the track in the affected areas. The city has completed its obligations of Transport Canada’s Guidelines to eliminate train whistling, and after safety equipment is finished

being installed, the request to stop whistling will be sent to Transport Canada, that ultimately has the final say whether or not the whistling will cease. Even if Transport Canada allows trains the cessation at these crossings, trains will always whistle if there are people or animals on or around the track.

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.

u Cutting costs

B.C. Ferries begins trip to cut $26 million from costs By Tom Fletcher Black Press - The Northern View BC Ferries made $18.5 million profit on its busy Victoria-Tsawwassen run last year, thanks to passenger and vehicle load averaging 72 per cent. At the other end of the scale, the long run from Port Hardy up the coast to Prince Rupert operated less than half full on average, requiring a staggering subsidy of $2,364.72 for every vehicle carried. And for every vehicle that rode the Victoria-Gulf Islands run, BC Ferries lost $60.79. Detailed performance figures for every BC Ferries route were released Monday as the B.C. government began a consultation on how to save $26 million on operations. Transportation Minister Mary Polak said the savings are needed to balance the interests of taxpayers with ferry users, after the province increased the ferry subsidy $79.5 million over the next four years. The subsidy for this year is about $180 million, most of it from the B.C. government. BC Ferries has been raising rates steadily for 25 years as fuel, labour and other costs increase. Polak said inland ferries that don’t charge the public have also seen declining traffic, and it has been demonstrated that cutting rates doesn’t increase revenues. “It isn’t a matter of just looking at routes that make money or don’t make money,” Polak said. “BC Ferries operates trying to provide necessary service to communities,

while at the same time being a reasonable cost for taxpayers.” BC Ferries has already cut sailings on the Duke Point to Nanaimo run, which loses an average of $50 per vehicle carried. BC Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan said Duke Point is a key commercial route that is also busy with

visitors in summer, but it has high fuel and labour costs because it is a longer run than the other main routes. Both Polak and former transportation minister Blair Lekstrom have said lowcapacity routes have to be made more efficient.

Consultation sessions are being arranged for coastal communities in the coming weeks. Route data and feedback forms are available at a new website, www.

Prince Rupert video game lovers, environmentalists or anyone frustrated with customer service will be happy to know that CityWest, Prince Rupert’s main telecommunications provider, has been making improvements to its services. CityWest executives presented the general annual shareholder report that highlighted accomplishments, opportunities, and challenges from the past year to Prince Rupert city council at the last meeting held Oct. 22. Accomplishments include opening a small office in Kitimat, signing agreements with two unions CityWest employees belong to, and improving TV service by purchasing and installing a “Superdish” designed to add more TV content and reduce signal fees. CityWest has also solved the lack of available bandwidth to meet growing demands, which will resolve issues local gamers have been complaining about. The company is releasing a new high speed internet plan called Quantum, with customers having an option for a 10 or 15 megabit plan. Additionally, there will be no more charges for over usage. “It’s a great leap in service, and has been longawaited in Prince Rupert,” said Jack Payne, vicechair of CityWest. However the company still faces challenges, the first of which being to increase revenue and control company expenses. Another challenge the company is planning to overcome is how customer complaints and questions are dealt with.

“Customer service is a big issue for our company. We haven’t done as good a job as we could have with it,” said Payne. The company will be implementing a new method where people calling in will be able to speak with a person, as well as an updated website where people can get assistance daily. Finally, CityWest is hoping to come to an agreement with other companies to improve the mobile phone network. Currently, smart phone owners are able to use some applications on their phones, but not all. “With the advent of three competitive cellular companies in Prince Rupert, the economics for our mobile solution have substantially changed. Prior to competition, we were able to justify the continuing upgrade of the network over a larger customer base,” Steve Lake, CityWest board member, said, adding the customer base has been diminishing because of competition. CityWest isn’t in a place financially to put a large investment in the mobile network to bring it up to standards, but Lake said the company is actively negotiating with potential partners to find a solution. In terms of opportunities for the future, CityWest is planning to build a WiFi network covering the downtown and Cow Bay region before the next tourist season that will be available to customers and for purchase by others wishing to roam on it. The exact business model and method has not been determined yet. Furthermore, the company will try to promote e-billing to customers to reduce paper usage. CityWest sends out approximately 15,000 envelopes each month, with only nine per cent of customers currently using e-billing.

RESUMÉ from Page 4 While situations differ based on the number of jobs held, think of including either the last 3-4 jobs or 15 years of experience, whichever is less. For those lacking experience, it is acceptable to include voluntary, unpaid or relevant educational involvement on your resumé. If you were a committee member of a student club or volunteered for a non-profit organization, extract those duties and indicate why that experience is relevant in your career progression. 4. WHAT’S TOO PERSONAL? As marketing techniques vary by country and culture, so do resumés. What may be expected in some countries is not required in North America, generally because it can lead to discrimination. You do not need to reference your marital status, age, children, ethnicity or religion. Also, don’t include a photo. While you may be trying to convey your level of professionalism, instead include a link to your LinkedIn page or similar where you can include a professional headshot which, through this medium, is an acceptable and even expected practice. 5. LIST ACCOMPLISHMENTS, NOT JUST DUTIES Companies are looking to make an investment in employees, in fact, aside from real estate, labour is the highest cost to a company. You therefore need to prove your return on investment. Instead of simply listing your performed duties, try using CAR statements that outline the Challenge, your Actions, and the Result. Most hiring managers know what the basic duties include for most roles. To stand out, you need to demonstrate that you are a valuable employee who goes above and beyond. 6. USE KEYWORDS TO GET NOTICED Many companies, particularly those that are large or are household names receive hundreds, if not thousands of resumés, and therefore use a recruitment program to sort applications. They do so by scanning your resumé for keywords that match

Part 2 - The resumé importance

the requirements for the role. Review a few job postings that interest you and pay attention to certain keywords that stand out. Ensure you include these throughout your resumé and cover letter, keeping in mind that they should appear at least three times, preferably near the top. This will increase the chances of your resumé passing the initial screening and getting into the hands of the hiring manager. 7. POWER-UP Reduced, improved, accelerated, launched, identified, eliminated and managed -- these are all power words that may be included in your resumé. By starting each bullet point with one of these action words, your CAR statements will have more impact and you will demonstrate to employers that your actions produced results. 8. WHAT ARE YOUR PRIORITIES? You’ve identified your CAR statements and used power words to describe them, the next step is ensuring that you are referencing those points that are priorities in your desired job. Similar to including key words, ensure that those duties that are most closely related to the job you are applying for are at the top of your experience for each job function. This will make it easier for hiring managers to match you to the role. 9. TARGET SPECIFIC OPPORTUNITIES Just as it is important to customize your cover letter, you’ll have a leg up if you also do so for your resumé. While this requires more time and attention to detail, you’ll increase your chances of being noticed by hiring managers. Review the job posting and ensure you list the keywords, job priorities and CAR statements that are most pertinent to the role. Consider including a specific career objective or goal that directly relates to the job and if desired, include the company name in the statement. 10. NOT ALL RESUMÉS ARE THE SAME

Still uncertain about how to profile your specific skills and experience to a job within your field? A resumé for the hospitality industry naturally differs from that of an accountant or labourer. Review examples online to ensure that you are presenting an accurate depiction of yourself and your experience. Like all good brands, you need to manage your resumé and professional profile. With social media making it easier than ever for employers to check up on you, it is essential that you maintain a consistent and professional image across LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and any blogs you may write or participate in. In addition to ensuring that there are no disparaging remarks or unwanted photos that are visible, you also need to ensure your LinkedIn profile supports what you have referenced in your resumé. By creating a strategic personal marketing campaign and brand, you’ll enjoy greater success both in your next job and throughout your career.

Rampage use shootouts to down Kings, Demons By Shaun Thomas The Northern View The Prince Rupert Rampage were on the road again this weekend, and picked up three of a possible four points from division rivals Terrace and Kitimat. On Friday night the team made their way to the Terrace Sportsplex to face off with the River Kings and it was the Kings’ Ryan Holtom who opened the scoring on the powerplay, getting one by Keano Wilson just over six minutes into the first, followed by six minutes later by a goal from Terrace’s Josh Murray to give the Kings the 2-0 lead. Ninety seconds later, the Rampage’s Kory Movold found the back of the net on the powerplay to pull the Rampage to within one heading into the second. In the second, the period’s only goal was the tying marker by Justin Fontaine with 7:48 to go in the period. All tied up at two, the third saw Terrace pull away again on a goal by Dawson LeBlond in the first three minutes. But the Rampage fought back, with goals by Josh Kierce and Movold giving the Rampage the lead. And with time winding down and Prince Rupert on the powerplay it looked like a sure win, but Terrace captain Steve Cullis was able to score the shorthanded goal with just 2:03 to play — forcing a shootout. In the shootout, Movold’s goal in the first round was followed by a

goal by Josh Murray in the second round to tie things up. In the third round, Jared Meers put one by netminder Darren Beaulieu while Wilson shut the door on LeBlond to give the Rampage their first win of the season. The next night the team traveled to Kitimat to face the Ice Demons, and the home squad opened the scoring early on a goal by Nick Markowsky just over two minutes into the period. But the Rampage would take the lead with Josh Kierce scoring five minutes later and Movold beating Thomas Mildenberger just over half way through the first for a 2-1 lead. There would be no scoring in the second, but just over two minutes into the third Josh Slanina beat Wilson to tie things up at two. With no more scoring in the period, the Rampage would head to their second shootout in as many nights. The shootout would follow a similar format to the previous night, with Movold scoring for Prince Rupert in the first round and Slanina scoring for the home team in the second, but this time there was no scoring in the third round which meant it went to sudden death. In the fourth round, Mildenberger stopped Bryan Tates while Steve Venman beat Wilson to give the Demons the two points. The Rampage are off this weekend, and will host their first home game of the season on Nov. 10 against the Demons.

Lights Out, which had members from Prince Rupert, Haida Gwaii and Kitimat, won the championship game against Bella Bella by just two points. Darcy Pearson, pictured with ball, Lights Out second highest scorer, said the team “didn’t perform at their best... we were out of gas”. The team had no practices before the tournament, and still managed to take the top spot.

Defending champs were Lights Out By Conrad Lewis Special to The Northern View The Third Annual Tribal Nations Tournament (TNT) ran very well despite the tsunami alert on Saturday, which forced organizers to re-jig the schedule on Sunday. Bella Bella Seniors made a great attempt at becoming the new champs in the TNT despite having to play three games in one day to do it. Bella Bella Seniors eliminated their Intermediates 90-62 early Saturday evening then were victorious in two close elimination matches on Sunday, 72-66 over Lavinias Bed and Breakfast and, an even closer match, 76-73 over the Friendshiphouse Chiefs.

For kids, few holidays are more anticipated than Halloween. The chance to dress up in costume and patrol the neighborhood with friends while collecting treats is the highlight of many a child’s autumn. For parents, anticipation is replaced by anxiety. While kids are out trick-or-treating, parents may be home or at work hoping their kids are safe and sound. Because Halloween is so popular among kids, it’s hard for parents to forbid trick-or-treating. But parents should instruct kids on the following tips to ensure this Halloween is as safe as it is fun. • Strangers’ homes are off limits. Make sure kids know they should never enter the home of a stranger, no matter how friendly or welcoming that stranger may seem. • There’s no going it alone. Kids should not be permitted to go out alone. When trick-or-treating, kids should always be accompanied not only by their friends, but there must be at least one adult chaperone present at all times. Parents should get together several weeks before Halloween to determine who will chaperone, where kids will be trick-ortreating and during what hours. • Stay close to home. Kids should stay in their own neighborhood and only visit homes of neighbors they know. Advise kids to steer clear of homes whose doors are hidden from street view. Chaperones should accompany kids to the front door if visibility from the street is poor. • Choose safe costumes. Kids should wear costumes made of light colored material. If a child insists on a favorite costume that uses largely dark material, attach reflective tape to the costume so your favorite reveler is easily visible to motorists during twilight and nighttime hours when it’s not always easy for drivers to see. • No toy guns. Toy guns are just asking for trouble, as many of today’s replicas are easily confused with the real thing. Play it safe and choose costumes that aren’t accessorized with toy guns. • Bring a flashlight along. Night falls quickly in late October, so kids and chaperones alike should carry a flashlight to improve their visibility and make them more visible to passing motorists. • Stick to the sidewalks. Trick-or-treaters should stick to the sidewalks and always cross the street at corners. Don’t walk in the street, and never walk between parked cars when crossing the street, as it’s especially difficult for motorists to anticipate pedestrians walking or running from behind parked cars into the street. • Be wary of masks. Many masks restrict a child’s vision, so look for one that provides sufficient visibility. If a child’s favorite mask is low on visibility, make children agree to remove their mask when crossing the street. Parents understandably worry when kids go trick-or-treating. But a few simple safety lessons shared with children can ensure everyone gets home safe.
