Flood effects in Bella Coola: Impact on health BY CHRISTINA BOUCHER Residents of the Bella Coola Valley experienced an emergency event due to flooding that officially lasted from September 23 to 25. The effects of that event, however, are much more long-lasting for many people. The flood event of 2011 was a painful reminder of the 2010 flood in the Valley, which had a devastating effect on the lives of residents who experienced

damage to their homes, businesses, and surrounding land. Additionally, this year’s flood caused a wave of distress and anxiety for many people who are still faced with clean-up from 2010. “It’s normal for people to feel stress and anxiety in the face of traumatic events like the flooding,” commented Carole Clark, Mental Health Department Manager at the Bella Coola General Hospital. “I’d like to see

it become more normal for people to seek supports sooner for that ongoing stress and anxiety.” Due to realities of dealing with flood clean-up, pursuing compensation through insurance or government agencies, or managing other issues related to the loss of personal or business items, stress could be having a detrimental effect on your health. Everyone responds in a different way to stressful situations; therefore, everyone has

different health needs. Research shows that the effects of experiencing a natural disaster such as a major flood can have long-lasting effects that continue for months or even years. In some cases, symptoms may not even begin to appear until months or years later. Stress can occur from good events (such as a wedding or starting a new job) or bad events, but it becomes a prob-

lem when we are unsure of how to handle an event. The first stage of stress involves the body’s mobilization of energy: you feel your heart beat faster and your breathing get faster as the body releases adrenaline. This reaction leads to what most people call the “fight or flight” mechanism, and helps a person to get moving

The psychology of natural disaster: Stress and health CONTINUED FROM


to deal with whatever is causing the stress. The second stage of stress occurs when the source of stress persists, and the body consumes sugar and fat stores in order to stir up the energy to respond to the stress. At this stage, a person might experience anxiety, have memory trouble, or become more prone to catching colds or illness. You may drink more coffee, smoke more, and drink more alcohol than is good for you. You may feel driven, pressured, and tired. If stress continues, the body's need for energy will become greater than its ability to produce it, and you will become chronically stressed. At this stage, you may experience insomnia, errors in judgment, and personality changes. You may also develop a serious sickness, such as heart disease, ulcers, or mental illness. A severe form of stress that has been documented in cases where people have experienced natural disasters is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Some symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks, or a re-experiencing of the event, that may increase in intensity at the anniversary of the traumatic event. People with PTSD may also avoid objects or places that remind them of the traumatic event, or may withdraw from friends and family. Additionally, PTSD signs may include increased

alertness, insomnia, or disruption to sleep patterns. This list of symptoms is by no means comprehensive, and if you have concerns, local resources are available. Health services are available through the physicians at the Bella Coola Medical Clinic (250-799-5342). As well, mental health supports including the psychology and psychiatry telehealth services are available through the Bella Coola General Hospital Mental Health Department (250-799-5311, ext 231). Other supports are available through the Bella Coola Community Support Society (250-799-5588). In addition to physical and mental well-being, spiritual health also affects the mind and body. If you feel that this support is right for you, there are several resources available. United Church Reverend Ann AustinCardwell offers spiritual support through one-on-one talks and can be reached at 250-799-5388. Seeking support through health services is only one avenue to coping with the stress of the aftermath of the flood. The Coast Mountain News will continue to report on the effects of the 2010 and 2011 flood along domains including emergency preparedness, tourism, and environmental impact in subsequent issues. Please contact the Editor with questions, concerns, or suggestions on printed material. Letters to the Editor are always welcome.

Bella Coola resident honoured with Medal of Military Valour BY CHRISTINA BOUCHER On September 9, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada, announced today the awarding of six Medals of Military Valour to members of the Canadian Forces who displayed gallantry and devotion to duty in combat. One recipient of the Medal of Military Valour was Bella Coola resident Sergeant Gilles-Remi Mikkelson, M.M.V. Sgt. Mikkelson was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in May of 2011, yet was ranked as Master Corporal at the time of his actions for which he was awarded the Medal of Military Valour. On November 1, 2009, a member of Master Corporal Mikkelson’s joint Canadian-Afghan foot patrol was severely wounded by an improvised explosive device. During the ensuing ambush, Master Corporal Mikkelson selflessly crossed through intense enemy fire to provide life-saving first aid to the critically wounded Afghan soldier.

Despite the danger, his outstanding courage saved a comrade’s life and brought great credit to Canada and the Canadian Forces. Five other members of the Canadian Forces were also honoured for their actions: Lt. Guillaume Caron of Rimouski, Que., Cpl. Bradley Casey of Pugwash, N.S., Pte. Tony Harris of Penfield, N.B., Capt. Michael MacKillop of Calgary, AB, and Master Cpl. Marc-Andre Rousseau of La Sarre, Que. The three Military Valour Decorations, the Victoria Cross, the Star of Military Valour, and the Medal of Military Valour, were created by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, on January 1, 1993. The Victoria Cross is awarded for the most conspicuous bravery, a daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty, in the presence of the enemy. The Star of Military Valour is awarded for distinguished and valiant service in the presence of the enemy. The Medal of Military Valour is awarded for an act

of valour or devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy. Anyone can propose a nomination for the Military Valour Decorations. If a member of the Canadian Forces meets the criteria, a submission will be made through the member’s chain of command for consideration by the Military Valour Decorations Advisory Committee and the governor general. For all three Military Valour Decorations, recipients must be a member of the Canadian Forces or a member of an allied force that is serving with, or in conjunction with, the Canadian Forces, on or after January 1, 1993. The six recipients will receive their medals at a ceremony that will be held at a later date. The Coast Mountain News would like to thank all the Bella Coola residents who have served in the Canadian Forces, both in the past and at present. If any readers would like to recognize the efforts of family or friends who are members of the Canadian (or American) forces, submissions to the Coast Mountain News are welcome.

Local elections to be held November 19 BY CHRISTINA BOUCHER Elections for the Central Coast Regional District (CCRD) Board of Directors and the School District #49 Board of Education Trustees are scheduled to occur November 19. Nomination packages for prospective candidates are now available at the CCRD office. These packages are due by 4 pm on October 14 at the CCRD office in downtown Bella Coola. A candidate qualifies for Regional District office if he or she holds Canadian

citizenship, is at least 18 years of age, and is a resident of British Columbia for at least six months immediately preceding the day of filing nomination papers, and has not been disqualified from seeking or holding office Candidates are ineligible if they have been disqualified by the Local Government Act or any other BC Enactment, or the Courts from voting in a general local election. The local level of government differs from national or provincial levels in that the responsibilities of

local governing bodies are concerned with policy fields directly related to local communities. Regional districts have three basic roles. They provide a political and administrative framework for providing region-wide services such as regional parks and emergency telephone services such as 9-1-1, providing inter-municipal or sub-regional services such as recreation facilities, and acting as the general local government for the electoral areas and providing local services such as waterworks and fire protection within the

electoral areas. Services the Central Coast Regional District is mandated to deliver, either on a local or regional basis, include Economic Development, Land Use Planning, Parks and Recreation, Emergency Management, Bella Coola Airport, Centennial Swimming Pool, Bella Coola (Townsite) Waterworks and Fire Protection, and Bella Coola Valley Refuse Disposal. For more information on activities of the CCRD or Regional Directors, visit www. online, or

stop into the CCRD office in downtown Bella Coola at 626 Cliff St. The role of a Board of Education Trustee in public education is to maintain focus on structure, policy development and implementation, due process, and accountability. Challenges to trustees in any school district include the maintenance of a balance of fiscal responsibility and quality learning environments for students. The Coast Mountain News will be involved in the facilitation of the electoral processes as

a neutral party and sponsor of the All Candidates Meetings. Individuals and groups that are electors of either Board of Education Trustees or Regional Directors are invited to send questions that they would like to ask the candidates to the Editor at or (250) 9822696. The Coast Mountain News will offer space in the October 29 and November 10 issues for candidates to answer these questions or to make a statement regarding their candi-

dacy. As well, any All Candidates Meetings will be attended and reported on by the Coast Mountain News. The All Candidates Meetings are usually held 1 to 2 weeks prior to the election, and the CCRD and Board of Education candidates appear separately over a two-night period. All candidates make opening and closing statements and answer questions from the community, providing voters with an opportunity to ‘get to know’ their candidates for office. These dates will be set in the coming weeks.

Dear Editor/ Residents/ Neighbours/Friends, Last night I walked to a favourite spot on the river. On my way, I tipped my hat to those before me, who have displayed the desire and fortitude to make a life for themselves here. I stopped on two occasions to pick up a couple of empty beer cans and wondered why? Why do we live here? There are many beautiful valleys in the world and likely, all are far more benign and easier to live in than this one. Do we not live here because a connectedness to the natural world feeds our souls? Henry David Thoreau (~1850) wrote, "In wildness is the preservation of the world." Is this the answer? As I sat quietly on the bank, the recent furore regarding how best to deal with the invasion of Japanese knotweed and human caused mortality of Valley bears filled my thoughts

(Hagensborg/Bella Coola - Gov't "reported only" numbers: 41 grizzly bears killed as "problem bears" in past five years (inaccurate #'s but represents an absolute minimum)). Echoes of loud voices, fearful tones, and the banging of fists on tables rang off the steep walls of this magnificent Valley. I lingered alongside a natural spawning channel, choked with wild Pink salmon, deliberating over herbicide stem injection versus physical excavation, responsible solutions to reducing humanbear conflict, revitalizing the Valley's economic health, and healing old wounds when a lone grizzly (one of just a few I've seen this Fall) wandered toward me into the scene. I stopped thinking and started feeling. No fear; only humility, awe, and respect filled me. What I felt was the essence of this place. This is why I live here. You? Every day I ask

questions of the river. Do recyclables and garbage littered about enhance the Valley? Can we allow Japanese knotweed to destroy the Valley ecosystem? Are we all doing everything we can to co-exist respectfully and safely as part of this majestic wild land? If the wildness or 'essence' of this Valley is lost, we'll lose our home. We'll lose ourselves. For the betterment of the children, our Community, and this 'Living Eden', we all have the privilege to call home, should we not look for answers? The river claims that they lie in us and may be found with relative "E's": For the children: Enrol, engage, entertain, energize, enhance, encourage, enthuse, exalt. Educate, equip, empower, enrich. Elicit, evoke, elevate and enhance esteem; exceed, entrust, enliven. For the ‘good:’ Expose, eliminate, expunge, exterminate, extinguish, escape,

egregious, egocentric entitlement. Eradicate enmity & estrangement. Embarrass, eschew & evacuate evil; end extirpation (extinction). For the Valley: Encompass, envelop, embrace everything, everywhere, everybody, everyday. Explore, experience enlightened (co-) existence. Extol exquisite extraordinary Eden; enjoy, exult, eternal enigmatic Earth. For the Community: Envision, eagerly embark, endeavour, expedite, effectuate, establish, ensure ethical ecological economy. For ourselves: Examine? Exercise earnest effort emerge evolved. Exemplify & emulate excellence. Embody environment. Emanate essence. Exhibit and express Ethos - exude ecstasy. Exhale.

SAMS implements new timetable for student courses BY JEREMY BAILLIE It is hard to believe the first month of school has already passed. Along with the new Grade 6s, SAMS has several new faces in Grades 8-12 that have either transferred from Acwsalcta or have recently moved into the Valley. Staff and students have adjusted to the new timetable very well. The timetable this year sees the school focus on academic courses in the morning when the research says the brain is at its best. In the afternoons, the focus changes to the elective courses when research suggests the brain is at its most creative.

Fridays are all about elective courses with the whole day devoted to them except for the last block which is when our new advisory block occurs. The advisory block gives students and teachers the opportunity to study things that may be outside the curriculum that are of interest to both staff and students. The students are definitely enjoying and making great use of their new gym facility. The school cannot thank the Board of Education and Superintendent Denise Perry enough for their hard work in convincing the Provincial Government on the need for our new

gym. We also thank the Board for planning within their budget for the new PE equipment the school recently received. The District is lucky to have an active and dedicated Board of Education that uses the funding received by the Ministry of Education towards what is best for students. The District receives $6,784 per student enrolled as of September 30. Each public, independent, and band-operated school submits a count of its students to the Ministry of Education on September 30. Realizing that enrolment numbers can change throughout the year, the

Ministry of Education asks all schools to do another count in February. This allows both public, independent and band schools to receive funding for students who may have transferred between schools in the community or elsewhere in the province. There is also an ‘appeal’ process in place for schools to use if a child transfers just after the counting deadlines of September and February. The school/ district receiving the student sends the appeal to the Ministry for the student who transferred just after the deadline. More information regarding the school district and its finan-

SAMS students Danny Hood, Clayton Walkus, and Rodney Ethier (left to right) enjoying classtime cial accountability practices are available

both on the School District web site

and the Ministry of Education web site.

CCCS service extended to Firvale, improved in Hagensborg BY JAMES HINDLEY Big things have been happening with the Central Coast Communications Society (CCCS) this summer. They received funding from Network BC to upgrade the Saloompt Peak site to service Firvale and better service the Hagensborg area. Upgrades included two more access points that will allow for an expanded service area, new batteries that will better handle the harsh environment on the mountaintop, and a wind turbine to offset the lack of solar energy that is produced in the winter. The upgrades were carefully planned

out with the help of Energy Alternatives in Victoria, taking into account the worst case scenarios due to the extreme conditions and location of the site. An employee from Air Zephyr, who makes the Air Dolphin wind turbine, commented on the conditions at the Saloompt Peak site in Bella Coola, which is unique on an international scale: "It's great that the installation is generating some buzz! I think this probably is the most extreme site we have at least for winter conditions. We have another Air Dolphin installed at the top of a mountain in Japan, but I think [the Bella Coola site] is at a higher elevation and gets

more ice. We have had our turbines in sites with extremely high winds (sometimes over 100 mph), but [the Bella Coola site] is probably the most brutal combination that I know of." Additional remote monitoring equipment has been installed to see the power that is being generated by the wind turbine and the solar panels. With this upgrade, the CCCS is able to connect more people in Firvale and Hagensborg. The installs have resumed once again due to the increased capacity. The CCCS is working as fast as possible to look after those that have been waiting the longest as well as looking after main-

tenance of the rest of the network. A three man team of Brian Cross, Rob Neidrauer, and James Hindley camped on the peak of Saloompt for four nights to ensure the upgrades were installed at the smallest cost to the CCCS and the members, as there was much work to be done and it would have required many flights to take them up and back down each day. The CCCS has a facebook fan page that is regularly updated with photos and updates. There will be a link put on or it can be found by searching for Central Coast Communications Society on facebook.

The Arts Council presents: A weekend with Chris Czajkowski BY BETH JAY

Cariboo-Chilcotin author, artist, botanist, and wilderness woman Chris Czajkowski

Join Cariboo-Chilcotin author, artist, botanist, and wilderness woman Chris Czajkowski for a weekend of art, photography, books, talking and creative writing. This weekend is brought to you by the Bella Coola Valley Arts Council, October 15 and 16, with all events taking place at The Art House Chris Czajkowski was born and raised in the north of England. She lived and worked in Uganda, New Zealand, the South Pacific and South America before settling in the remote reaches of British Columbia's Coast Range mountains, where she operates the Nuk Tessli Alpine Experience. Her wilderness and cabin-building experiences have been documented in several bestselling books, including Cabin at Singing River (1991), which tells of the trials and tribulations of building a log cabin. Diary of a Wilderness Dweller (1996) recounts the struggles, the triumphs, and the lessons learned while carving a home and living from one of

British Columbia's most remote areas. Snowshoes and Spotted Dick: Letters from a Wilderness Dweller (2003) describes Czajkowski's experiences as she builds her fourth cabin in the wilderness with hand tools, two chainsaws, an Alaskan Mill and some helpful friends. Lonesome (2004) is a memoir of her faithful dog. A Mountain Year (2008), an art book full of original paintings, sketches and diary entries, offers an awe-inspiring glimpse into the life of Chris’s independent spirit and the landscape that she calls home. Wildfire in the Wilderness (2006) culminates in a white-knuckle account of the alltoo-close Lonesome Lake fire of 2004. A Wilderness Dweller’s Cookbook (2010), Chris’s most recent book, is not a how-to-skin-a-moose-and-salt-it-downand-make-the-offal-into-sausages kind of book. Rather, it is a fascinating account of how a wilderness dweller - in a non-growing climate 20 km from a road, 60 km from a store, and 250 km from the nearest town large enough for a supermarket - feeds herself and the visitors that come to her

small ecotourism resort. On Saturday, October 15, from 12:00 to 4:00, come to a public showing of Chris’s art. There will be some work for sale. Chris works in several mediums, including water colour, pencil drawing, photography, and block printing. Chris’s books will also be for sale at the show. On Saturday, October 15, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, Chris will present a slide show and read from her books. Chris is an experienced and entertaining speaker who has been amusing packed auditoriums in British Columbia and Alberta for the last twenty years. The talk will describe her wilderness life: how she built her own cabins singlehandedly and copes with life on a highaltitude, fly-in lake at least a day-and-ahalf's walk from the nearest road. The talk will be illustrated with a slide show featuring Chris’s photographs. Admission is $10 and will include appetizers and punch. On Sunday, October 16 from 10:30 am to 12:00, Chris will lead a writer’s workshop. Admission is $10. Please phone 250799-5935 to register for this event.

Four-term MP Nathan Cullen today announced he was running for NDP leader, and invited progressives on board to bring in a new kind of politics. “It’s time for the next generation to take the next step— delivering a progressive government for a progressive country,” he said, calling for an end to “the crass political calculations that serve Stephen Harper, not citizens.” “I don’t just want to beat Stephen Harper. I want to beat the way he does politics,” said Cullen. He said his experience bringing people together to defeat a

Conservative MP in the northern British Columbia riding of Skeena—Bulkley Valley convinces him that a new kind of politics is possible. “It taught me to trust my neighbour. And working together we overcame great theats to our environment and economy,” he said. “Since being elected four elections ago, I’ve met countless people who just want politics to work. “We don’t want

politics that divide rural Canadians from those in cities. Eastern Canada from the west. Quebec from everyone else.” Cullen said the momentum for a new kind of politics makes now the time for New Democrats to act: “We must seize this new openness to new politics, because Canadians are tired of being told that more divides us than brings us together. And they are energized by tak-

ing the next step.” He also paid tribute to Jack Layton, saluting his work in bringing more people together and allowing new politics to take shape: “When he extended his hand to Quebecers and invited them to build a better country together, they said yes.” Cullen, 39, is originally from Toronto, and after working in developing countries with local community development

and women’s shelters, moved to British Columbia where he ran a successful small business. He lives in Smithers with his wife, Diana, and their one-year twins, Isaac and Elliot. Since being elected in 2004, he has served as the NDP critic for the environment, and also energy and natural resources. After the last election, he was elected chair of the House committee on ethics.

Regional District chairs meet with BC Premier to improve coastal ferry service PRESS RELEASE, POWELL RIVER REGIONAL DISTRICT The leaders of eleven coastal regional districts and the Islands Trust, together representing 70% of the BC population, met with Premier Clark and Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Blair Lekstrom in Vancouver on September 27 to continue their collaborative work to improve the ferry coastal service. This meeting was preceded by meetings of the Coastal RD Chairs with Minister Lekstrom in July and BC Ferry Commissioner Gordon Macatee in August. “The meeting with the Premier and Minister Lekstrom was very positive and was an excellent example of the regional governments of coastal BC coming together in one voice to tell the Premier that major improvements to the coastal

ferry service are an imperative,” said Colin Palmer, Chair of the Powell River Regional District and Chair of the Coastal RD group. “We are confident that the Premier heard that the coastal ferry service is our marine highway and that the three million British Columbians we represent need it fixed as soon as possible.” Joe Stanhope, Chair of the Regional District of Nanaimo, stated: “The Coastal RD chairs are looking forward to the release of the BC Ferry Commissioner’s review of ferry fares and appreciate the expansion of the Commissioner’s mandate to now include ferry users, rather than just the economic viability of the BC Ferries Corporation. “Our group considers this review, and out continuing commitment to represent the interests of the even larger

group of all coastal residents and visitors, will assist the Premier and Minister Lekstrom in some tough, but critically important, decisions in the very near future.” Jim Abram, Vice Chair of the Strathcona Regional District, was encouraged by the Premier’s commitment to meet with the Coastal RD Chairs group again after the BC Ferry Commissioner’s review is released. “We are encouraged by the Premier’s support for our continuing work to improve the coastal ferry service on behalf of 70% of all British Columbians. This is a major issue to local families and to the economic viability of all coastal communities in British Columbia. The Premier is now even more aware of the absolute necessity to restore our marine highway to affordability in the provision of this critical public service.”
