Elected to his first term as Chief Councilor of the Nuxalk Nation, Andrew Andy celebrates with his mother Roseanne

Andrew Andy elected as Chief Councilor of the Nuxalk Nation Community members gathered at Nuxalk Hall on Tuesday night to witness the election of Andrew Andy as Chief Councilor of the Nuxalk Nation. There were three candidates running: incumbent Spencer Siwallace (who served two terms since 2007), Andrew Andy, and Peter Tallio. It was a tense night for the three candidates as the votes

were tallied, but ultimately Andy was victorious, elected for his first term as Chief Councilor. Andy received 242 votes, Siwallace 153, and Tallio 124. More than 500 votes were cast and the youth vote reportedly played a bigger role this year. Siwallace served two terms and accomplished much during that time, including the construction of a new band

office, extensive renovations to Acwsalcta School, and the historic signing of the Coastal Reconciliation Protocol just last December. During the election many people expressed the desire to see a continuity of the numerous projects started by the last chief councilor even if there was a change in leadership. Mandatory elections every two years do not

allow much time to establish projects, and this has been a bone of contention in the community for many years. Communication was another hot button issue among voters, along with employment, education, culture and language preservation. With so many issues vying for his attention Andy is certainly up for a demanding term.

Twelve councilors were also elected from a roster of over thirty nominees. James Mack, Samuel Schooner, Terry Windsor, Larry Moody Jr., Kiana Tallio, Marshall Hans, Harvey Mack, Marvin Mack, Ken Morton, Blair Mack, Billy Andy Jr., and Richard Hall will sit on council for the upcoming two-year term.

Cry Rock wins Best Short Documentary at Women in Film Festival Vancouver Local filmmaker Banchi Hanuse’s directorial debut, Cry Rock, has won Best Short Documentary at the Women in Film Festival in Vancouver. Established in 1989, Women In Film and Television Vancouver is an internationally-affiliated non-profit society committed to advancing and celebrating women in screen-based media. Approximately 150 films were submitted to the Festival and 45 were chosen to screen at the Festival. In the category of Short Documentary, Cry Rock bested ten other films to take the top honour. “The winning films are selected by a jury,” said Festival representative Elyn Dobbs. “Cry Rock was awarded with the Best

Short Doc at the closing ceremony.” While this is the first award for Cry Rock, it isn’t the first nomination for the film. Cry Rock was also nominated for Best Documentary Short at the American Indian Film Festival last fall in San Francisco, CA. The film was also given an “Honorable Mention: Indigenous Voice” at the Fargo Film Festival in Fargo, North Dakota. Cry Rock continues to be shown at film festivals across Canada and the U.S. and will be one of the films shown at the opening ceremonies of the Cowichan International Aboriginal Festival of Film and Art in Duncan, B.C., which begins April 13.

She’s back! Lorna Layton pens new book of short stories Bella Coola Community Forest Ltd. & Bella Coola Resource Society

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING BCCFL and BCRS will be holding their respective Annual General Meetings jointly on: Wednesday, March 30, 2011, 7:00 pm at the Bella Coola Valley Inn BCRS members and BCCFL shareholders are encouraged to attend to receive information about this past year’s accomplishments and financial status, elect Directors and pass motions. BCRS is the holder of the community forest licence and BCCFL has the contract to manage the business of the community forest on behalf of the BCRS. Membership in the BCRS is open to all Valley residents and/or property owners (nominal one time $5 fee). BCCFL is made up of local investors who purchased shares at the time of the Offering Memorandum (December, 2007 – February, 2008).

BY ANGELA HALL I’m sure most of you recognize the wonderful woman in the picture - and for those of you who don’t, it’s Lorna Layton. A name you might want to remember for the future. Years ago, when I was the owner of Coast Mountain News, we had a columnist page. Lorna was always one of the featured writers. Since then, there have been many

inquires as to her columns. I have had to explain that the business was sold several years ago, and it now has a new focus and format. But all is not lost. Lorna has turned her hand to writing more stories and putting her favorite tales into books. The first volume is titled ‘The Lilac Lurker’ which is comprised of 26 short stories featuring the hilarious and zany adventures of the Laytons and their pets.

If you’re new to Lorna’s stories, you’re in for a treat. If you’re familiar with her work it’s like meeting up with a special friend. I’m definitely looking forward to the next in the sequel that will be called ‘Husbands and Men.’ Watch for it! The Lilac Lurker is a great present for yourself or for some special person on your gift list. Copies can be purchased at Cliff Kopas Store in Bella Coola.

Only BCRS members are permitted to vote on society matters and only BCCFL shareholders are able to vote on corporate matters. Three Directors from BCRS and BCCFL are to be elected/re-elected. Members interested in running for election are encouraged to contact the persons below. Both BCRS and BCCFL are accepting motions from their respective constituents.

Hereditary Chiefs dance the Simon Johnson Honour Song to close the ceremonies Acwsalcta’s expansions are nearing total completion and last week the school celebrated with the bless-

Dance by Noel and Lawrence Pootlass, upon whose traditional territory the building resides. “It’s an awesome time to have this facility available as a place to pass on our culture,” said Noel Pootlass. “As Nuxalkmc I encourage our young people to keep yourselves strong, to learn our stories and our songs. You can do many things with your life, you can be great leaders.” Following his address, a traditional blessing took place by elders and hereditary chiefs, who blew eagle

down about the floor of the new gym. “This eagle down ceremony stands for peace,” said Cultural Teacher Lance Nelson. “You are expected to enter this space with a good heart. I thank our chiefs for being here and blessing our school and our gym.” Many grateful words were spoken of the elders who envisioned the school decades before its inception in 1986. “I remember my late grandfather speaking of a school for our people back in 1953,” said Project Manager Archie Pootlass. “The elders guided us to

make this school a priority and our current administration of Chief Councilor Spencer Siwallace, Band Manager Theresa Hood, Dan Hardy, and the Lorne Brothers have done a beautiful job. Well done.” Hereditary Chief Charlie Nelson spoke of his experience as a student of Acwsalcta; he was a grade five student when the school first opened in 1986. “I am really excited for all of the students here,” said Nelson. “Thanks to all of the leaders who were involved.” Nelson then led all

of the Acwsalcta students in the singing of ‘Anina.’ To conclude the ceremony, the Simon Johnson Honour Song was performed with the hereditary chiefs and contractors taking part. The afternoon was concluded with a prayer from elder Beatrice Elliot, who conducted the groundbreaking ceremony exactly one year ago. Making the day extra special, it was also her birthday. The official opening ceremony of the school expansions will take place in late May.

Devastating earthquake in Japan sparks coastal tsunami warning

The huge earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan last week sparked local tsunami warnings

An enormous 9.0 magnitude earthquake off the northeast coast of Japan last Friday has left that country in turmoil and sparked new concerns around local tsunami warnings. A tsunami warning was issued for coastal areas north from Alaska to California but little resulted from the quake other than some larger than normal waves mostly experienced in the Hawaiian Islands of Kauai and Maui. A tsunami did hit

the inland Vancouver Island community of Port Alberni in 1964 and caused immense damage. That tsunami was caused by a 9.2 magnitude quake in Alaska and thankfully there was no loss of life. Local Emergency Program Coordinator Stephen Waugh said that although the province may have lifted the Tsunami Advisory early in the day, many coastal communities certainly didn’t heed that advice.

“We maintained our Emergency Operations Centre at Level 1A to monitor the Tsunami Advisory,” said Waugh. “Waves can continue and increase in magnitude for a many as three hours after the first wave reaches our coastline, so it was too early to state that we had dodged the bullet, so to speak.” The EOC was active from 0030hrs when they first received the initial 'Warning' which was upgrad-

ed to an 'Advisory' at 0150hrs. All coastal communities werenotified and are maintaining enhanced vigilance, which Waugh confirmed is the recognized plan. The EOC also keep communications close to their key responders until they hear of an increased probability of imminent damage. This is intended to reduce the panic response that can sometimes cause more injury to the public that the actual event.

During this last incident, the Bella Bella hospital called in extra staff and woke patients while preparing them for possible evacuation. In Bella Coola this wasn't done due to our decreased risk. Fire Chiefs in all three First Nations communities

(Nuxalk, Heiltsuk and Wuikinuxv) were contacted and maintained communications with the CCRD until notified of the 'All-Clear.' “In general, tsunamis are not noted as being a serious threat to Bella Coola but the CCRD maintains responsibility for the outer coast communities as well,” said Waugh. “We activate our EOC for them as well as our own local community as a rule.” Although the tsunami itself is not a major threat, a landslide-caused tsunami could produce serious effects for Bella Coola but would come with very little warning. Residents should always be aware that if a considerable earthquake is experienced in our area (one or more minutes) they should immediately move to higher ground. In the townsite this is an elevation near the new RCMP detachment or higher such as up the steps to the reservoir. Acwsalcta School is the safe zone for anyone in 4-mile or those who may travel by vehicle from Bella Coola. Individuals who are at the wharf during such an event are advised to travel west

to the Clayton Forest Road where there's a gravel pit where they can take refuge until the all-clear is given. Signage for these areas is on hand and will be deployed this spring. “Another interesting thing to note is that I received several calls through the night from local volunteers who were involved in the recent flood event,” said Waugh. “Clearly our community program is developing such that the support team comes together even before being formally notified. That's a promising sign.” Focus is now turning to the possible nuclear fallout that could be experienced if there is an explosion at any number of Japan’s damaged nuclear facilities. As of press time US government officials were claiming that the West Coast was not in any danger of radioactive exposure even if the reactors were to meltdown. Local experts seem to agree. David Measday, a nuclear physicist at the University of British Columbia, also said that even in the event of a large-scale meltdown, the radiation would dissipate over distance.

Duane Pederson retiring after 25 years of Tweedsmuir Ski Races The 25 annual Tweedsmuir Ski Race had a special significance this year as this is the last year it will be organized by dedicated volunteer Duane Pederson. Duane has been a fixture at the race and during the ski season for a quarter of a decade with good reason – he is passionate about the sport of crosscountry skiing. “I started in 1987,” he said. “Back then we used to get a great turn out from Tatla Lake as well, as they had a strong cross-country ski program there.” While Duane remains committed to staying active up in the cross-country recreation area, he believes it’s time to pass the torch. “I’ve enjoyed it very much,” he affirms, “but it’s time for some younger people to take over.” This year saw a great turnout for the race with lots of newcomers and lots of young kids participating. The weather for the race was colder than expected with light snow falling and temperatures hovering around minus five. However, this left the trails in great shape for the race. Thirty-five skiers raced out this year, an excellent turnout that included all varieties of ages and skill levels. There were a lot of young racers this year, with twelve skiers in the twelve and under category: six boys and six girls skied seven kilometres and the ages ranged from five year old Torger Matthews, to 12 year old James Windsor, and eleven

year old Lori Saunders. It was truly a family affairs as there were many families that came out to ski together including the Clair family, the Saunders family, the Boileau’s, the Ratcliffs, the Matthews, the deGraces, and the Koroluks. The nature of the race makes it fun for everyone to ski together and three very young participants took part (pulled by their dedicated parents) including Noah deGrace (eight months) and Morgan and Eric Boileau (two years and eight months respectively). The winner once again was Alex Boileau with a time of 1:29:4 in the 24 kilometre race. This was the seventh win for Boileau whose best recorded time so far was his 1:17:31 in 2008. Other best times in the 25 year history of the race belong to Sandy Mc Girr of Tatla Lake who posted the fastest female 24 kilometre time with 1:25:17 in 2004. This year Vera Robson posted an impressive time of 2:16:03 for 24 kilometres in the Class Five category (50 and over). Sara Germain completed 24 kilometres in 2:54:00 in Class Three category (17 to 39). In other ski news, the new overnight cabin was slated to be completed this year but last fall’s flood derailed those plans. The foundation and floor have been completed and this year’s plans are to assemble the building now that all the materials are on site.

Duane and Chris tally the results

Winner for the seventh year in row – Alex Boileau and his son Eric

Happy Birthday! BC Parks celebrated 100 years March 1

Michael Wigle photo

Tweedsmuir Park, one of the oldest in BC, has an amazing variety of recreational opportunities for visitors and residents alike. BY JOAN SAWICKI With the establishment of Strathcona Provincial Park on March 1, 1911, British Columbia became the first western province to establish provincial parks. Since that time, BC has built an impressive system to protect some of the most biologically diverse, beautiful, representative and/ or culturally significant landscapes of the Province. The work has

never been easy; hundreds of people have dedicated their careers and volunteer hours to the task. The concept of ‘Parks’ has evolved over the decades – and is still evolving today. The primary focus of early parks was for public recreation. Many of our best-known parks, such as Wells Grey, Mt. Robson, Garibaldi – and Tweedsmuir, through which all of us drive each time

we leave or enter the Valley - date from this era. Established in 1938 and named for the 15 Governor General of Canada, John Buchan, Baron Tweedsmuir of Elsfield (also a renowned author who wrote many novels and mystery thrillers), Tweedsmuir remains BC’s largest provincial park. By the 1960’s and the passage of the first Parks Act, ‘conservation’ became a priority

along with recreation. The struggle to maintain the proper balance between these sometimes competing objectives remains one of the greatest challenges for BC Parks today. Most of the infrastructure that we have come to associate with provincial parks, including the distinctive campgrounds, picnic tables and outhouses, were built in the 1970’s and early 80’s. With the comprehensive land use planning processes that characterized the 1990’s, the BC Parks system underwent what has been described as “the most dramatic decade in its history”, doubling in size from six percent of BC’s land base to twelve percent in a mere ten years. “Parks” mean different things to different people, but it is difficult to overestimate their critical importance to our lives today and to future generations tomorrow. For the wide range of plant and animal species with whom we share this Province, protected areas are a refuge where Nature has the opportunity to flourish and evolve - hopefully with minimum negative interference from us. With

the uncertainties of climate change, this will become an increasingly important role for our protected areas. For we humans, the treasure and gifts we receive from our protected areas are many and varied, including ‘free services’ like absorbing dangerous greenhouse gases, filtering water and holding soil; healthy recreational and spiritual opportunities; and economic benefits for communities – like ours – who are fortunate enough to have several protected areas in close proximity. While there is much to celebrate on this 100 birthday of BC Parks, however, there is also much cause for concern. Our parks desperately need our help. They need to be properly inventoried so we can better understand what’s in them and how best to conserve and maintain biological diversity and healthy ecosystems. They need to be properly staffed, with enough Rangers and interpretive programs to help us learn nature’s lessons as we enjoy recreational activities within these areas. But, most of all, they need to be treasured and supported by all of us as citizens.

Have you ever felt that moment of panic as your car starts to skid?

Central Coast Regional District Invitation for Expressions of Interest

Protected Areas in our Region* •Mid-Coast: 38 areas, including spectacular Hakai Luxvbalis, Fiordland and Kitasoo Spirit Bear conservancies • Bella Coola: 17 areas, including Tweedsmuir Park and Dean River, Clayton Falls, Bella Coola Estuary and Burnt Bridge conservancies *including Parks, Ecological Reserves, Recreation Areas and Conservancies (which are a new designation under the Parks Act that reaffirms and recognizes the importance of these areas to First Nations communities.)

Whether we are motivated by respect for our ancestors or moral obligation to future generations, by commitment to conservation or to continued economic benefits for our communities - only WE can ensure that these special places that we have now drawn a line around truly merit the designation of ‘protected’.

We will not be here for the 200 year birthday of BC Parks - but our grandchildren will. For their sake - and for Nature’s sake - we need to work to ensure they have cause to thank us for our foresight – just as, this year, we owe a debt of gratitude to those who helped establish the parks and protected areas that we can enjoy today.

BC Parks Mission: … to protect representative and special natural places…for world-class conservation, outdoor recreation, education and scientific study.

The Central Coast Regional District/Bella Coola Recreation Commission is inviting Expressions of Interest for reclamation/site preparation of the Walker Island Ball Field area. Work is expected to include removal of approximately 300 feet of chain link fencing on the south and west ends of the field, to be stored on-site; removal of debris from the entire park area; and leveling of the ball field and soccer field, an area of approximately 300 ft X 500 ft, in preparation for the installation of infield and outfield surface materials. A mandatory site viewing will be held once the Invitation for Expressions of Interest has closed. Submission of an Expression of Interest will pre-qualify bidders for a Call for Tenders, which is expected to be issued in early April. Prospective Bidders who have not submitted an Expression of Interest will not be permitted to submit a bid. Expressions of Interest must include the name, address and telephone number of the individual or business making the submission, and must be received my mail, email, fax, or in person, no later than 4:00 pm, April 1, 2011, at the Central Coast Regional District Office: Box 186 Bella Coola, BC V0T 1C0 Tel: 250-799-5291 Fax: 250-799-5750 Email:

Make sure a skid doesn’t ruin your day. Ease off the brake or gas, look and steer smoothly in the direction you want to go. If you overcorrect you’ll probably skid the opposite way – maybe a few times. Repeat the procedure until you regain control.

Slow down. Shift into Winter.

Some BC Parks Statistics • 989 provincial protected areas totalling 13.1 million hectares and comprising almost 14% of BC’s land base • more than 340 campgrounds, 118 boat launches and 6000 kms of hiking trails • almost 90% of British Columbians have visited a provincial park at some time
