Summertime…and the Discovery Coast Music Festival is here! If you check out the latest issue of BC Musician Magazine, you’ll see that BC is a province with many music festivals. For those of us here in Bella Coola, far from the festival circuit, we are extremely fortunate to have our own festival, bringing the music of Canada and

the world right here to our beautiful valley. From solo performers to orchestras. From the pop duo of Carmen and Camille to the fiddling prowess of Daniel Lapp, the political songs of Williams Lake’s Brent Morton and the inter-cultural music of Toronto-based Jaffa Road,

there’s an amazing smorgasbord of Canadian talent and musical styles ready to entertain. H’Sao, based in Montreal but with Chadian roots, draws on traditional African music and masterful a capella singing to create a unique soundscape of world music. First

Nations singer/songwriter Digawolf brings the imagery of northern Canadian landscapes to his songs, accompanied by masterful guitar playing. And of course, Bella Coola is proudly represented by the music of Caley Watts and her band. So come on out and listen

to great live music, mingle with the musicians, dance up a storm, eat some local food, visit with friends, and don’t forget all the fun stuff for the kids! With the mountains in the background and eagles soaring overhead, what could be a better way to spend the weekend.

Enbridge slammed for ‘culture of deviance’ in US oil spill A U.S. government agency has approved investigators' findings that Canadian pipeline company, Enbridge Inc,. knew about cracks that led to a 2010 leak of more than three million litres of oil into a Michigan river. The most expensive and extensive onshore cleanup in U.S. history, which is nearly complete, has already cost about $800 million US. A five-person panel of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) voted Tuesday to accept the conclusions of investigators on the cause of the leak. Matt Fox, an NTSB investigator, told board members on Tuesday that the Calgary-based company was aware of the cracks in its pipeline near Marshall, Mich., but failed to address them adequately before the rupture. The pipeline started leaking on July 25, 2010, into Talmadge Creek near Marshall, about 96 kilometres east of Grand Rapids. The oil spread into roughly 56 kilometres of the Kalamazoo River. The spill fouled wildlife habitat and resulted in the closure of a large swath of the river to boaters and anglers. Two years later, all but a few hundred metres of the river have since reopened. “Learning about Enbridge's poor handling of the rupture, you can't help but think of the Keystone Kops,” said Deborah Hersman, chair of the NTSB. “Why didn't they recognize what was happening? What took so long?” she said in statement. She said that

despite alarms and pressure differentials, Enbridge staff twice pumped more oil, about 81 per cent of the total release, into the pipeline, which was sporting a gash the size of a school bus. Hersman said that oil gushed from the rupture for more than 17 hours before the leak was discovered. “This accident was the result of multiple mistakes and missteps by Enbridge,” Hersman said. “But there is also regulatory culpability. Delegating too much authority to the regulated to assess their own system risks and correct them is tantamount to the fox guarding the henhouse. B.C Environment Minister Terry Lake said the report on the Enbridge spill is “pretty damning,” but that doesn't mean the Northern Gateway project shouldn't go ahead. Lake said the B.C. government will take the report into account as it studies Enbridge's plan. “When you read about the culture at Enbridge, that's worrisome,” Lake said in an interview. “But again, we need to fully understand this. This happened two years ago. What changes have occurred at that company to ensure that this kind of reaction doesn't occur in the future?… I view this as more information to help us formulate a position.” But B.C. NDP Leader Adrian Dix said the government of Liberal Premier Christy Clark should stop fence-sitting and join him in rejecting the Northern Gateway project. “The Kalamazoo pipeline rupture

The US National Transportation Safety Board has found that Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. knew about cracks in their pipeline that led to leak of more than three million litres of oil into a Michigan river in July 2010. report showed that Enbridge was unprepared, its systems were inadequate, and proper procedures were not in place despite the various inspections and controls that are supposed to prevent these episodes and to contain them with minimal impacts if they do occur,” said Dix. As debate around the pipeline heats up and Joint Review Panel hearings continue across the province, the report is raising alarm bells in B.C. and Alberta where an Enbridge proposal to build a $5.5-billion, 1,177-kilometre pipeline from the oilsands to the West Coast is being opposed by residents concerned about the danger of oil spills. NDP Leader Adrian Dix says the report is more evidence the province should block the Northern Gateway

pipeline. “Premier Clark and the Liberal government have failed to fully participate in the National Energy Board hearings into the pipeline, missing the deadline to submit evidence and represent the interests of British Columbians,” said Dix. Clark has refused to take position for or against the Northern Gateway pipeline, saying she wants to weigh the evidence presented to the federal joint review panel, which is currently conducting hearings on the pipeline proposal. This stance has angered many British Columbians, who feel that the government should have registered to participate in the hearings on behalf of the residents of B.C. The three-member panel will release an environmental

assessment of the contentious Northern Gateway pipeline

project in the fall of 2013, several months after the May provin-

cial election. With files from CBC News

Letters to the Editor CCRD Letter to the Editor: When I attended the public meeting on the valley’s flood preparedness at Lobelco Hall last Spring, I was comforted to learn that my newly purchased property on Airport Road would come under the protective umbrella of the proposed dyke upgrades around the airport. Like most, I thought it was a done deal.

From your letters last week, I am now aware that Steve Waugh was the little Dutch boy with his finger in the dyke, but that our Burghers failed him and our community. When the September floods come again, I’m sure we will all resolve to vote in the next regional election; however, until that time, we must fatten our fingers. David Dowling

Eco-rafting with Kynoch West Coast Adventures Tamara Hynd I’m always looking for new ways to explore the valley, so when I was invited to drift the Bella Coola river with guide, Fraser Koroluk and his guests, how could I refuse? It was a warm sunny Saturday morning, when I loaded into the van with a family of four from Sydney, Australia and a retired couple from northern California. We drove up to our put in location at Canoe Crossing, right across the road from the Summer/ Capoose trail head. Our route would take us sixteen kilometres down the Bella Coola River. After a safety briefing and double check of our life jackets, Fraser got his hands on the oars as he launched us on our way. What I got from this trip was a wealth of knowledge. I learnt more in three hours about ecology,

species in a 100 feet stretch of shoreline that are all food sources for grizzlies. Although grizzlies mate in May and June, females have delayed implantation. The fertilized egg will not implant into the uterus until the female’s body fat reaches a critical amount. This highlights the importance of a healthy, abundant and uninterrupted food source for grizzlies. At a sandy beach, Fraser set up a

table and served us a snack of hot tea, fresh fruit, scones and trail bars made with lavender from Holly’s garden. When Aussie boys Ryan, 7, and Mackenzie, 9, were asked what their favourite part of the trip was, they both cheered, “the rapids.” Their mother, Jill Hill, added what she liked most about the trip were “the eagles, the snow capped mountains and the tales from Fraser.” Fraser also pointed out the changes to the river since the

2010 flood. As we passed the Nusatsum River, Fraser spotted a playful river otter on the opposite bank as it walked along the rocks. As we neared the bend to the Bailey bridge take out, we spotted our first site of humans; fishermen trying their luck at spring salmon fishing. When we returned to Bella Coola Mountain Lodge, as luck would have it some friends arrived on their bikes after swimming at the Centennial Pool.

Together we sat on the deck to enjoy the view of Schoolhouse Mtn. with a cappuccino and cinnamon buns fresh out of the oven. It was a great way to spend a warm summer morning and share some of what I had just learned. Before leaving, I peaked into the sharp new dining room and I look forward to meeting friends there for dinner soon. For more information on Kynoch West Coast Adventures, call 250-982-2298.

Marine planning Open House to engage Bella Coola Community Central Coast MaPP Co-leads Whether you live near the ocean, make a living from the coast, or just enjoy walking on the beach, you’ve likely come to appreciate the benefits of a healthy marine environment. But how can we work together to keep that environment healthy and able to support sustainable economies for future generations? That is one of the questions a new initiative, called the Marine Planning Partnership for the North Pacific Coast (MaPP for short), will answer. MaPP is a partnership between the Government of B.C. and 20 First Nations. The partnership works

with the public and stakeholders to create a marine plan for the central coast, along with plans for Haida Gwaii, the north coast and North Vancouver Island. On the evening of July 24, MaPP participants will be on hand at an open house at Lobelco Hall in the Bella Coola Valley to answer questions about how MaPP works, and let you know about some of the work planned over the next year and a half. It’s a collaboration that’s built on a diversity of voices and perspectives. We welcome your participation in helping to chart the future of the marine environment on B.C.’s central coast.

To Market, to Market Connie Nygaard I lived on the family farm until I was sixteen years old. It was there I learned to cook, bake, knit, sew and crochet among many other skills. I have always had a garden. In the late 1990's my daughter Deanna returned to Bella Coola and between us we grew all our own produce. We soon found out that we had more than we could use so we decided to take the produce to the Farmers Market that had been established in 1994. We also baked and sold meat pasties and fruit turnovers as well as other baking and homemade goods. Deanna has since moved to her own home and is working full-time, I have continued on my own. When Denise, the lady who baked the bread, left the valley, I filled the space left by her. I bake various types of bread

such as wholewheat, multigrain, white and rye. I will bake other types on request. I also bake quick breads, cookies and muffins. Blueberry and rhubarb seem to be the favourite. Along with the baking, I also make jams and jellies with whatever fruit is in season, most of which comes from our own farm. I will buy local fruits if I don't have some fruits I might like. Come see us at the Farmers Market every Sunday between 10AM and 1 PM. There are vendors with something for everyone. If you don’t see something you like, just ask and we will see what we can do for you. Remember if you have too much produce, fruit or eggs, but not enough for a table, Farmers’ Market has a community table for you. Contact Dianne Tuck or June Vosburgh ahead of time and Farmers’ Market will sell it for you. See you there

Hagensborg Water District pilot project begins Grant Robertson and Ken Dunsworth The Hagensborg Water District is pleased to announce the commencement of its Point-of-Entry Water Treatment Pilot Project. The first installation was completed on July 2, 2012, in the home of Leslie and Carl Harestad. The beginning of the pilot project marks the culmination of roughly two years of extensive work with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority which led to the receipt of a waterworks construction permit for the pilot project this spring. The POE treatment system installed in each home consists of three treatment steps including a multi-gradient filter to reduce turbidity, an ultra fine filter to reduce cryptosporidium and giardia (Beaver fever) and further reduce turbidity, and a NSFvalidated ultraviolet light (UV) sterilizer to disinfect the water. Other than removing suspended particles like dirt and debris, the system does not remove minerals, add chemicals, or alter the taste or physical char-

acteristics of the water. The system is equipped with back-up power, surge protection, monitoring equipment, several back-up safety systems, and even a water leak detection device. The District is confident that the system will serve as a model for other POE projects in B.C. The POE water treatment system was designed and built by HomePlus Products Inc. of Kamloops, B.C., a member of the Canadian Water Quality Association and leader in pointof-entry water treatment and UV disinfection in B.C. Grant Robertson, President of HomePlus was on hand during the pilot project installations, and had this to say when asked about the initial results, “So far, all of the installed systems are performing as expected. "The initial UV doses, post-treatment water pressures, installation time per system, and other key parameters are all running slightly better than we originally anticipated.” Over the course of the pilot project, extensive data regarding the performance of the systems, maintenance requirements, and

monitoring needs will be gathered to thoroughly assess the costs and logistics associated with full implementation of point-of-entry (POE) treatment for all homes and businesses in Hagensborg. The project will also assess the impact of unusual rain events on the ability of the system to meet turbidity reduction goals and if any modifications

to the intake facility on Snootli creek are desirable to address such events. While implementing POE treatment in a large community is not without its challenges, we are confident that it will enable the District to meet the treatment objectives of the B.C. Drinking Water Protection Act and Regulations while meeting the Board’s mandate from community members to use an alternative to centralized chlorination treatment, and to complete the water treatment project without taking on debt. Trustee Dunsworth is very pleased that the pilot project has begun. “The commencement of the pilot project and collection of data will enable the Water Board to assess the maintenance costs. As previously outlined in the plan, this will enable the Board to come back to a public meeting with those costs for a final consensus prior to implementing a POE system for the Hagensborg water user”.

The United Church of Canada Presents Compassion Camp 2012: God Made You and Me Special David Dowling Following the success of last year's camp, attended by 52 children, Emmanuel United Church will offer a four day camp July 17-20 (Tuesday through Friday), 1 pm to 3.30 pm, called 'Compassion Camp 2012: God Made You and Me Special.'
