While no lives were lost as a result of the Oct. 27 magnitude 7.7 earthquake, an area of significant cultural and tourism value on Haida Gwaii may now be lost forever. “This week we were able to do a site visit to Hot Spring Island and other areas to assess any impact from the earthquake. I can confirm that the pools at Hot Spring Island, and there are three or four of them, no longer have water flowing into them and the rocks around the pools, which are usually warm to touch, are cool,” said Gwaii Haanas superintendent Ernie Gladstone.

Emergency Management BC (EMBC), the province’s crisis management arm, will be conducting an internal review to seek where improvements can be made in light of the Oct. 27 earthquake and tsunami warning. EMBC’s executive director of emergency coordination and operations Chris Duffy and manager of strategic initiatives Kelli Kryzanowski made the

announcement on Monday during a media conference call. While the pair assured reporters they would be looking at ways their response can be improved — while also defending the hard work of their staff in spreading information — reporters were hard on them, asking why it took nearly an hour for some emergency coordinators in community’s to hear any official word from the province and why not use social media channels to send out information faster. Duffy said within a minute of getting

Hot springs return remains questionable Drainage not well understood

GATEWAY perspectives

Kitimat: A safe option I’d like to set the record straight on why we chose Kitimat, at the head of the Douglas Channel, as the site for Gateway’s marine terminal. The answer took thousands of hours of research, planning, engineering, environmental science, oceanography consultation, weather monitoring, and simulation. But the simple reason is . . . safety, all the way. The Douglas Channel is one of the widest and deepest inland waterways on North America’s west coast. Government research had already determined Kitimat to be among the safest ports in B.C., and about 1,500 tankers carrying petrochemicals have docked safely at Kitimat over the past quarter-century. Strategically speaking, Kitimat provides the lowest environmental risk for all aspects of Gateway operations. It offers a safer endpoint for the pipeline route, from a geotechnical perspective. The marine terminal at Kitimat also provides safe approaches for tanker traffic — with a suitable turning basin in Kitimat Arm, and natural deep-water berths that are sheltered

from open-water wave conditions. At its very narrowest, the Douglas Channel is 1.4 kilometres wide — three times wider than Transport Canada’s recommended width for two-way tanker traffic. Water depths in the marine channels are up to several hundred metres. As an added measure, full simulations of vessel traffic in the Douglas Channel were carried out at a world-leading facility in Denmark. It tested the largest proposed vessels in environmental conditions that tankers would experience in the marine channels. The result was a thumbs-up on the shipping route, endorsed by both government departments and the British Columbia Coast Pilots.

Following Saturday’s earthquake on Haida Gwaii, Skeena - Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen released a wish list to help those on the island better respond to an emergency. Cullen said that he’s heard from people that the lack of island-wide cell service is a major concern.

“Emergency responders simply had no way of coordinating their work outside of the pockets of cell service in major communities. The lack of mobile communications definitely hindered response and evacuation efforts,” he said. Cullen also said the government needs to look at a secondary road to connect northern Haida Gwaii to the southern parts of the island

and establishing an emergency operations centre on the Haida Gwaii. “The lack of a reliable secondary route became very clear. Islanders currently depend on a forestry road that may or may not be properly maintained outside of active logging. This cannot continue,” said Cullen of the dirt road that runs from past Port Clements to west of Queen Charlotte.

the Geological Survey of Canada to see if this is a short-term or long term thing.” According to geophysicist Elizabeth Hearn, a former professor of Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of British Columbia, it is common for earthquakes to change the pattern of groundwater flow though the mechanisms for these changes are not well understood. “It is possible that the strong shaking caused small cracks to form, increasing the permeability of the rock and causing a drop in the water pressure in the hydrothermal system’s source as hot water flowed into the surrounding rock,” she said in an e-mail to the Prince Rupert Northern View. “In your case the hot spring shut off, but that might be because spring flow increased elsewhere, reducing the pressure in the hot spring reservoir.”

There’s no mistaking the importance of Kitimat, B.C., to the Gateway project. It’s where the pipeline ends, and it’s where marine operations begin.

SPRINGS from Page 1 “We had staff on-site on Oct. 25 and visited Hot Spring Island on Oct. 31... So, sometime between last Thursday and Wednesday the water stopped flowing.” Gladstone notes that Hot Spring Island is near the epicenter of the earthquake, but that one of the aftershocks measuring over magnitude 4.0 took place less than a kilometre from the site. In the Haida language the name for Hot Spring Island is Gandll K’in Gwaayaay, which means healing waters, and Gladstone says this is a significant loss for many on and off the islands. “It is a very significant site to the Haida, it is used to rejuvenate in the water and is a very rich site for seafood harvesting. It is also a highlight for many people who come to Haida Gwaii and travel in Gwaii Haanas,” he said. “We’re having discussions with

u Quake aftermath

Mayor pleased with emergency response Continued from page 1 He said that initial communications were delivered based on priority, and said he’s confident that the communities who needed information the most received it the fastest. “As far as I can see, most communities received the West Coast Alaska tsunami warning centre feed direct and our staff would have been engaging those communities directly on the phone... I’m quite comfortable and confident that staff on a priority basis used all their efforts to get information out and share with communities accurate information in as timely a fashion as they could,” he added. He said that they do have a social media communications team but technical issues from Alaska’s tsunami centre and the need to verify information delayed anyone hitting the “tweet” button right away. “Anytime after hours there’s going to be some pressure between all the different parties to make sure they have communication that is consolidated, accurate

and ready to send out. There are certainly ways you can get information out quickly. The catch is making sure it’s accurate and validated information.” Kryzanowski added that the website for West Coast Alaska’s warning centre crashed due to high demand immediately following the quake and as that’s where a lot of information is sourced that slowed down further communications. Social media isn’t the only way information is sent. Duffy said in these instances amateur radio societies are always called in as a back-up to more modern communication methods. On the Prince Rupert front, mayor Jack Mussallem said he was happy with how the tsunami warning was handled. “The local emergency response was good. As soon as the shaking happened, our people were making necessary calls and getting together an emergency operations centre with representatives from various agencies rolling out plans for emergency response...

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. “British Columbia has a ready source of great jobs and careers

in technology. Our education programs need to keep up with that demand.” John Leech, Executive Director of the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC, explains that, “Every system we rely on — water, roads and transportation, telecommunications and Internet, hydro and natural gas, environment, health, forestry, and many more — utilizes engineering and applied science technology professionals working in the background. BC’s telecom and IT, animation and many other sectors produce new careers every month.” ASTTBC has more

Part 3 - Tech field booming in B.C.

NSIS photo

Rob Vallee, owner of Prince Rupert’s lone mobile tech support business, worked in the pulp mill for 12 years before being laid off. Vallee went back to school and graduated as a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer with an A+ Certification through an E.I. funded program at NWCC Skills Centre. He was the 2012 winner of the Prince Rupert BEA’s Excellence in Innovation Award . than 10,000 members currently working in thousands of careers available to graduates of two-year diploma programs available at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and other B.C. colleges and institutes. “Our members enjoy rewarding, well-paid and often recession-proof careers in public service and the private sector alike,” Leech said.

“For huge numbers of young men and women, technology is the answer. In B.C. and across Canada, technology permeates every workplace and job. We need to get capable students involved and engaged in applied sciences and head off workforce shortages by building a B.C. ‘Science and Technology Culture’.” Leech calls on government for renewed

efforts to build student skills and confidence in math and science programming. “We especially need to interest young students in science and how things work,” Leech says. “Young students use technology every day – smart phones, iPads and computers. They play video games, even build robots.” Leech lauds the recent “Year of Science”

program that encouraged students toward socalled “STEM” subjects – science, technology, engineering and math. Citing the recent $6 million B.C. campaign to encourage careers in trades, Leech urges a similar effort to build awareness of engineering technology education and careers. BC Technology Industries Association employers like Telus and BC Hydro and many smaller technology-rich companies say the single most important position they now struggle to fill is Specialty Technician/ Technologist. Even the Canadian Council of Chief Executives expressed concern that only 37 per cent of 16to 18-year-olds were interested in taking even one post-secondary course in sciences, according to a recent Angus Reid survey. Leech says the opportunities for those

seeking work in the technology field are considerable given a wave of retirements of present-generation B.C. technology professionals that is already underway. “Half of our membership is now middle-aged at 45-plus, and 22 per cent are over age 55,” he said. “Every region of B.C. shows growing demand,” Leech concludes. “New two-year technology diploma programs are still needed in the north and central B.C. However, young people are investing to travel so they can earn the necessary tech qualifications.” It would appear their investment is a smart move, as it will result in a broad range of career opportunities. Industries in all regions of B.C. support programs for local trainees to fill engineering and applied science technologist, technician and technical specialist positions.

u Social assistance

Service providers say Prince Rupert close to having a homeless problem By Shaun Thomas The Northern View According to two service providers in the community, Prince Rupert doesn’t have a significant homeless problem but a homeless problem may not be far off. “People who are actually homeless and living on the street are probably small in number, but the number of people potentially homeless within a short period of time is probably several. These are people who are 30 days away from being homeless if something happens to disrupt their income level,” said Capt. Gary Sheils of the Salvation Army. “Homelessness is becoming more of an issue. I’ve been in this program for four-and-a-half years now and it wasn’t as big of a problem when I started... It’s getting worse, and that’s just because poverty is the root of all homelessness. With income assistance and what they give out, it’s not enough to house a person,” said Judy Garbutt, Housing Outreach Worker with the North Coast Transition Society. Currently those on income assistance receive about $610 per month, of which $375 is designed to cover housing

costs. But rent in Prince Rupert has increased. According to the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, in June the average rent in Prince Rupert was $624 while the average rent for townhouses was $627. That cost is without taking anything else into consideration. “People get roommates to share rent. Hydro costs have become a huge problem. We’ve had a lot of people who have been cut off by BC Hydro and a lot of people are looking to be placed into somewhere that Hydro is included... There is nowhere in town where $375 will pay that. Nowhere,” said Garbutt, with Sheils noting the problem only gets worse as the temperature drops. “There are lots and lots of people who are going month-tomonth, paycheque-to-paycheque. And in this climate, doing that is even more of a possibility... The cost of everything goes up but their income doesn’t,” he said. Another cause of concern is the availability of quality affordable housing and the options for it. “All the landlords I deal with don’t have the vacancies that they use to have,” said Garbutt. “If you’re red-flagged by Macro Properties or BC Housing

and are looking for affordable housing then you’re in trouble.” Along with issues related to housing costs is a lack of training for those who may need it about the responsibilities associated with housing. Garbutt says there was once a life skills program available for those in need in Prince Rupert, but the funding for it was cut. “People get a cheque and spend it all instead of paying the bills,” said Garbutt of some of the problems people who took the course experienced. “The people who went through this program that were housed are still being housed. It was a very successful program.” The Prince Rupert Salvation Army currently has a 10-bed shelter housed at Raffles Inn, and does look at extra rooms when the need arises, while the North Coast Transition Society helps women and children in need and escaping abusive relationships and is operating near capacity. “We need a shelter. We definitely need a shelter,” said Garbutt, noting more funding to address the problem is needed as well. “A lot of this is because all of the funding has been cut.” And while much has been said about employment

The Prince Rupert Fire Department and the RCMP were called to Rainbow Chrysler shortly after 1 p.m. on Oct. 31 to extinguish a vehicle fire. Fire Chief Dave Mackenzie said a mechanical failure in the engine compartment of a Jeep parked in the back lot of the dealership caused the fire to start and it quickly spread to the rest of the vehicle. Firefighters received the call at 1:15 p.m. They arrived when the vehicle was fully engulfed but were able to quickly extinguish the blaze. The fire caused significant damage to the engine compartment, the interior, the roof and the body of the vehicle. opportunities in the community now and in the future, Sheils points to the level of assistance provided by the local Salvation Army as proof of the high level of need in the Prince Rupert. “Our shelter usage is about the same as last year.

We’re looking at doing 850 Christmas hampers for families this year and that is about 25 per cent of our town,” he said. “Nationally, one in 20 people receive help from the Salvation Army and here in Prince Rupert it is about one in four people. It’s horrendous.”

North president Lorie Williston announced that Todd Hamilton has been appointed the publisher of the Prince Rupert Northern View in Prince Rupert, B.C. “We’re extremely excited that Todd has decided to rejoin Black Press as the publisher in Prince Rupert,” Williston said during the announcement made at the Prince Rupert Northern View and Northern Connector office on Oct. 31. “During his tenure with us in Smithers as the publisher and editor of The Interior News, he demonstrated an unwavering commitment to his community, his readers and his advertisers. “Todd’s distinguished editorial background, progressive business acumen and community involvement leaves no doubt in our minds that Prince Rupert’s papers and online platform are in good hands as that city continues to blossom.” Hamilton, 48, who returns to

Black Press after three years as a group publisher of 12 community newspaper titles in Manitoba, earned either individually or as part of the team he led in Smithers and Houston, more than 60 Canadian and British Columbia newspaper awards during his five years in Smithers. Hamilton is a five-time British Columbia-Yukon Community Newspaper Association (BCYCNA) Ma Murray Award winner for community service and editorial writing and a fourtime winner of the Canadian Community Newspaper Association’s (CCNA) top awards for local editorial writing and community service. In 2007, Hamilton led the Smithers Interior News to the a clean sweep nationally of all general excellence awards for a newspaper of its size, including best overall, best editorial page and best front page, as well as, best overall and best front page for The Interior News’ sister paper, Houston Today.

In 2008, he led The Interior News to an unprecedented third consecutive Ma Murray Award for most outstanding service of a newspaper to its community and a second consecutive national award in the same category. In 2009, Hamilton was the runner-up for the George Cadogan Award, emblematic

rince Rupert needs another shake. In cities and towns across Canada, they can warn you when you’re hungry. But in Prince Rupert they can’t even warn you a tsunami may be on its way. From Smithers, B.C. to Neepawa, Manitoba, each and every noon hour a siren sounds to tell the townfolk its time to drop their hammers, push away their keyboards or hang up their phones and run for the fridge — it’s time for lunch. In Prince Rupert, we aren’t even warned it might be time to run for our lives. On that fateful Saturday evening, the third most massive and powerful earthquake to ever hit B.C. swayed pictures on the wall, ice cubes in drinks and turned a few stomachs.

After all, it was only Emergency Services and the Prince Rupert Port Authority mustered on higher ground at the third largest quake ever to hit B.C., but the Emergency Operations Command Centre those good folks at EMBC decided that nearly at City Hall. They quickly blocked off access an hour after everyone else in the world had to low-lying areas and began evacuations registered the quake, they might just want to warn someone.

I noticed some owners just sit in their vehicles and let the dog run loose. These people are not loving pet owners. A pet is a companion and should be treated as such, not just have the vehicle door opened for them and let loose to run and do their business. Len Lovering Prince Rupert

Hamilton might be a good pickup Editor: I have to tell you that gaining Todd Hamilton as your new manager has made a huge improvement to your paper. A few years ago, when he

was publisher for the Smithers Interior News, I would buy the paper because it always had interesting articles and his editorials were excellent. When he left there and the

format of the paper changed, it was not as good. We’re glad you’re here Mr. Hamilton! Donna Eisele Prince Rupert

Quake convictions just plain stupid Editor: If I could predict the day and the hour of the Rapture I’d say go ahead to Italy and convict those scientists for murder for only predicting an earthquake when it struck the country. But I can’t and neither can they.

scientists over to a democratic country. Former British Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher was against

the European Union because the numbskulls on the continent had no idea of running a democratic country and two world wars proved it. Now this happens with murder charges levied and Thatcher is right again. Maybe the Papacy has learned its lessons and will come to the rescue. Iran/Italy should at least get its head out of the sand.

RE:PORT

hen she walked into Prince Rupert’s Port Interpretive Centre for the first time, Melissa Steele was following in the footsteps of more than 5,000 visitors since the Centre’s official opening in June. But Melissa was different. Unlike the visitors who are regularly wowed by the centre’s sleek high-tech displays, she was there to stay. As the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s new Community Outreach Coordinator, Melissa is climbing a steep learning curve. “I grew up in Moncton, New Brunswick, so I’m constantly amazed at the rich history and economic opportunities that exist in Prince Rupert and the northwest region of British Columbia.” “I’ve learned just how vital Port activity is to this community, and met dozens of local people while giving tours in the Interpretive Centre. They’ve affirmed the importance of keeping residents informed and engaged through a community hub like the Centre.” Melissa has been busy developing new content and collateral materials for the Port Interpretive Centre. Her goal is to provide out-of-town visitors and locals with surprising insights into the wide-ranging impact of port operations. She’s anxious to start working with schools to create partnerships and learning experiences for local students. One such partnership is the creation of a new school curriculum module for school districts in the north, including First Nations communities, where elementary, middle and secondary school students will learn about port-related activities—in their classrooms and at the Port Interpretive Centre. “It’s exciting when you realize that we have real-world, local examples to draw upon for engaging kids in almost every subject of study,” Melissa says. “There’s basic math, science, geography and history involved in port operations that young children can grasp and appreciate, and there are great models of business, commerce and technology to stimulate and challenge even the brightest minds from our local schools.” Already Melissa has added a scale model of the Central Waterfront Vision and associated explanatory panels to the Interpretive Centre. These displays provide visitors a glimpse of what future mixeduse development could look like. Coming soon to the Centre is a new display that will feature video streams from the Port of Prince Rupert’s terminals and development sites. Visitors to the Port Interpretive Centre will also soon have a new seating area complete with couches and literature, providing a public space for locals to relax and enjoy a coffee while catching up on the latest news from ports around the world. Melissa is available in-person for guided tours and will respond to inquiries during the Port Interpretive Centre’s winter operating hours: Tuesday to Friday from 1:00–4:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00–5:00 p.m. Melissa can also be contacted via email at msteele@rupertport.com or by phone at 250 627-2513.

◆ OP-ED

Fifty first dates with Province and Ferries I can’t help feeling as if we’re stuck in a real-life version of the movie 50 First Dates - you know, the Adam Sandler flick about a guy continually having to relive a first date with an amnesiac. And, since I’m on movie metaphors, I’d suggest that we may also be facing a touch of the spin doctoring from Wag the Dog. This Friday we’ll meet with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. We are told that, “The B.C. coastal ferry service has been wrestling with cost pressures for more than 20 years. These cost pressures, if not addressed, could threaten the financial sustainability of the entire system”. And so we are asked to address the immediate challenge of cutting $26 million by 2016, and also discuss which “elements should be pursued to connect coastal communities in an affordable, efficient and sustainable manner in the long-term”. Does this have a familiar sound? During the summer of 2011 the Ferry Commission toured the province to discuss roughly the same thing. They presented themselves as a sympathetic audience, and British Columbians showered them with information – particularly about the skyrocketing fares. In return, we received a 12 per cent hike in fares. I’ll offer no more than a reminder of the 2010, and 2009, discussions with BC Ferries, during which they suggested reducing service to Prince Rupert through their “Route 10A” proposal.

The Mortgage Broker Advantage Increasingly, Canadians are turning to mortgage brokers for their first and next mortgage, taking advantage of the value and convenience of their services. A 2011 study conducted by CMHC (Canada Mortgage & Housing Corp) found that 48 per cent of firsttime buyers completed their transaction with a mortgage broker, up from 45 per cent in 2009 and 35 per cent in 2007. In the past mortgage brokers were utilized for those who had bad credit, but have now become part of the mainstream lending system. Shop Your Application to 60 Lenders

Jackie Touchet Janice Staschuk Cathy Horcoff Mutual Fund Representative DWM Securities Inc. Insurance Advisor Dundee Insurance Agency Ltd.

A mortgage broker is a certified professional who seeks the best mortgage terms for you by accessing a network of lenders that includes major banks, trust companies, credit unions and finance companies. While a mortgage broker

has relationships with the country’s biggest lenders, a mortgage broker is not beholden to any of them. A broker is beholden only to you, the client. Exceptional Service Non-traditional banking hours allows for flexibility in booking appointments. Whether it’s after work or on a weekend, a broker can meet with you at times that suit your needs. No Negotiating The most basic advantage of a mortgage broker is that she saves you from approaching the various lending institutions yourself, a laborious and sometimes undignified task. You fill out one application stating your assets and earnings, and based on your financial details, she will scout the market for the best mortgage. There is no negotiating; the broker will do the negotiating for you and

provide you with lowest rates up front.

the

Saves your Credit Score The mortgage broker will only pull one credit report and use that to shop your application to all the lenders. Each time you pull your credit report you lose points off your credit score, which could mean the difference between having access to the very best rates and paying an extra .50% on your rate. A mortgage broker can shop all their lenders with just one check. Same Perks as the Banks Sometimes you will hear institutions offering “Perks” if you sign up with them. Mortgage brokers have access to all these same great perks. For example, no restriction mortgages, cash-back and free valuations. If the bank can offer it, a broker can get it.

How to go from being a RENTER to being an OWNER By Emily Kawaguchi

Royal LePage, Prince Rupert With the current market conditions in Prince Rupert it can be just as cost effective to OWN your own home as it is to rent one – SO WHY PAY DOWN SOMEONE ELSE’S MORTGAGE WHEN YOU CAN PAY OFF YOUR OWN? A Realtor will make the experience as stress free as possible by providing important information and walking you through every step of this rewarding experience. STEP 1: TALK TO A QUALIFIED LENDER (bank/ mortgage broker) There are many types of mortgage options available to suit different financial situations, including those that require a zero down payment. It is a good idea to visit more than one bank or try a mortgage broker to find the best solution for your situation at the best interest rate. Have your lender run scenarios on what payments look like for

different mortgage amounts to decide what you can afford so you can START LOOKING FOR YOUR NEW HOME. STEP 2: DECIDE WHAT YOU NEED AND WHAT YOU WANT Browse the website realtor.ca to view pictures and find information on what is available in your price range. Choose the ones that interest you and make an appointment to have a closer look inside. Shopping for your home is the exciting part of the home buying process and can take a while as you gain knowledge of the market. Always ask for more information concerning details that are important to you. Once you walk into the right house– you will be confident and ready to MAKE AN OFFER. STEP 3: OFFER, ACCEPTANCE and SUBJECT REMOVAL A realtor assists with the negotiating process to help you and the seller come to an

agreement on the price you will pay for your house, the items that will be sold with the house and the date you will be able to move in. Contracts always include “subjects” to give the buyer time to get things like financing and insurance in place. An inspection by a qualified home inspector is highly recommended during this time to make sure the home is in the condition that satisfies you. You are not fully committed to buying the home until the “subjects” in the contract have been met to your liking. STEP 4: COMPLETE THE SALE Hire a lawyer or notary to legally transfer the property into your name before the possession date. STEP 5: MOVE IN AND LOVE IT! If you think you’re ready and have any questions do not hesitate to call and I will help you get started!

u Rampage coming home

Young Rampage squad looking to take down Demons in home-opener By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

For the past five years, the Prince Rupert Rampage have given sports fans on the north coast a reason to cheer and the team is heading into the 2012/2013 home opener on a high note as the season progresses. So far the team has played five games in the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL), traveling as far away as Lac La Hache to face the Tomahawks, and have come away with a 1-3-1 record. “The team is coming along great. We had a big weekend last time we played with a shootout win over Terrace and a shootout loss to Kitimat, so it was a threepoint weekend... It couldn’t have come at a better time. The boys are really starting to gel and for the first time in two years we’ve had full rosters on the road,” said team president Ron German, adding that anticipation is building for Saturday night’s game. “Everyone is pretty stoked to be playing at home. We had a little bit of extra ice time this weekend, which means an extra practice, and everybody is in pretty good shape.” Along with the familiar faces of the past - like Travis

Helland, John Hunt, Chris Woodrow and Derek Baker - the Rampage is sporting a bit of a new look this year between a number of rookies and pick-ups from the now-defunct Hazelton Wolverines. “We’ve got about five or six great rookies that bring a lot of speed to the team,” said German. Saturday’s home opener gets underway at eight p.m. against the Kitimat Ice Demons, a team that the Rampage have developed quite the rivalry with over the course of the past several seasons as they have battled it out for Western Conference supremecy. For those who have never been to a Rampage game, what has been called by many in the league the best crowd in the CIHL is something that has to be seen to be believed. “There is lots of action on the ice, a big loud crowd and lots of excitement. There’s prizes, like our Couch Potato contest and the chance to shoot to win a TV or a trip, and Prince Rupert Minor Hockey is on-site doing a 50/50 draw. It’s a really good time,” said German. “I hope everyone comes out on Saturday night and makes a lot of noise fo the team.” Look for complete coverage of Staurday’s game in next week’s issue of the Prince Rupert Northern View.

◆ COMMUNITY LIVING MONTH

They want what you want

Self-advocacy forum keys on abilities, not disabilities By Martina Perry The Northern View

They want to be like everyone else. They want to work and make money and be included in the community they live in. They want to be accepted. They are Prince Rupert people. They just have more challenges. The Prince Rupert Self Advocacy Group’s goal is to spread that message to employers and community members during October, which was Community Living Month in British Columbia. The Self Advocacy Group put on a conference and held a community barbecue to encourage employers in the community to hire people for their abilities despite their challenges and to give individuals the tools they need to be successful in their employment. “As a community we’re all a little bit different. We need to respect those differences and embrace them,” Dave Fischl, one of the speakers at this year’s conference, said. The Self Advocacy Group has been holding forums of this nature for the past 14 years, with approximately 75 to 80 people from Prince Rupert, Quesnel, Terrace and Prince George attending the “Futures on the Horizon” gathering this year. “The conference is held to bring awareness to employers in this town that individuals with intellectual disabilities can still do a job like anyone else. They just want real work, for real pay,” Val Wholmes from the Self Advocacy Group, said. The conference included a number of speakers including award-winning Fischl, Workplace Diversity Coordinator for the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, who is a spokesman for inclusion in the workplace. “It’s so simple to have those invisible barriers come up when [employers are] looking at hiring people. People tend to hire people like themselves,” he said. Fischl shared stories from his 37 years of experience with the ministry at the conference, including an instance when he almost was the barrier between someone different than himself getting a job. A member of the Public Service Commission came to Fischl while he was employed at Fleet Services,

“Some are tarnished, some are dull, but with a little bit of shining we can make them better.” -Dave Watson

asking if they would hire a blind man to work in one of the shops. “I said ‘how could someone with no vision be a mechanic?’… There’s no way we could put a blind person in one of our shops and have him do productive work and do it safely,” Fischl recalled, adding he wasn’t sure what the individual could do. “[The public service worker] said ‘I don’t know, but he’s in the pre-employment program and he’s in the top 20 per cent of his class. The only thing he can’t do is weld or test drive. He seems to do a great job at fixing wiring problems’.” At this point, Fischl realized the only thing holding back the man from employment was himself, and the blind man was given a chance to work in one of the shops for his practicum. The first task the blind man did was change the drive shaft on a truck, which he did faster than anyone else in the shop. “To take the short drive shaft off, you really couldn’t see what you were doing. You have to kind of feel your way, and for him that was very easy because that’s how he works,” Fischl said. After his practicum was over, he was hired at the shop. Fischl said he changed the moral of the shop, and made it substantially safer. “They knew they couldn’t leave things laying around on the floor… because there was a person with a visual disability. That’s the way a shop should always be…” The blind man went on to get his Interprovincial Heavy Duty Journeypersons certificate, proving disabilities doesn’t mean a person can’t be successful. And there are many examples locally where people with cognitive disabilities have been successful in finding long-term employment. “It might be a job that you and I don’t want but it’s something

they want… Once they get that job they’re reliable and dependable. You can count on them,” Wholmes said. Deborah Leonard currently works at the SPCA where she assists with a number of tasks. She has held down this job for the past eight years. “I like washing the dishes and looking at the animals,” she said. Leonard said she enjoys working so she can make money and enjoy her life to the fullest potential. She hopes to one day buy her own home and be able to travel independently. Jamie Alexander currently holds down two jobs in the community. Alexander has worked at Subway Restaurant for the past 11 years where he washes windows, does dishes and other tasks, as well as the Prince Rupert Northern View, where he has worked as a collator for the past two years. “I like working so I can make money and have enough to live on,” Alexander said, adding having money means he can go for a snack or to a party with friends when he wants to. Michael Sambo is another Prince Rupert resident who appreciates all the Self Advocacy Group has done for him. “They have got me out in the community more and we learn to work together,” he said. Sambo has had many jobs in the Rupert including a paper route and a long-term job at Philpott Evitt before it closed. He has worked at Prince Rupert Home Hardware since the store opened three-and-ahalf years ago. Sambo said his favourite part about working at Home Hardware

is dusting, and being part of the community. And the store is equally as thrilled to have him there. “We love him. He’s happy to be here. He’s part of our team,” Maria Melo, Home Hardware manager said. “I wish more employers took a chance, and hired people like Michael. He brings a lot to the table.” Melo said she would encourage other employers in the community to hire an individual with a developmental disability in a heart beat. To help ensure more individuals could be successful in employment, the Advocacy Group opened up lunch restaurant Soup Daddy’s earlier this year, to help people with developmental and dual-diagnosed disabilities learn necessary skills for working. “When we set up, we knew it wasn’t going to be a money-maker. But it wasn’t about making money, it was about getting our individuals in the community doing something and being seen doing it,” Dave Watson, one of the job coaches at the restaurant, said. Watson, who has worked with mentally challenged people for the last 16 years, also gave a presentation at the conference on why pennies, like individuals with disabilities, are unique. “Some are tarnished, some are dull, but with a little bit of shining we can make them better. A lot like the individuals that we support. They just need a bit of support in their lives and some of them will go on to be treasures in the community,” he said. Other speakers at the

conference included motivational speaker Michael Bortolotto, who was born with Cerebral Palsy and has moved on to earn a Diploma in Recreation and Sciences and owns his company as a recreation consultant, as well as Shelly Nessman, who has worked for more than three decades in the community living movement, and Toastmasters Penny Soderena and Ruth Stanton who gave attendees tips on public speaking. Additionally, local advocates Deborah Leonard and Sharon Wrathall spoke about their employment history. Wholmes said she hopes the individuals who attended the conference learned and thought about what presenters shared with them. Fischl said he was honoured to be part of the conference, that gave people a chance to show off their achievements. “Conferences like this allow individuals to show their ability and to show what they’re able to do,” he said. A few days after the conference wrapped up, advocates, community members and local politicians gathered for the second annual community barbecue put on by the Advocacy Group at the end of Community Living Month. The barbecue included food made by the Prince Rupert Lions Club, entertainment by local musicians Ray Leonard and Cynthia Pyde, speeches, cake, popcorn and face painting and more. The event was the Advocacy Group’s way of saying thanks to the community that has supported them throughout the years.

Construction is now underway of the Pinnacle Renewable Energy pellet export terminal in Prince Rupert. “We’ve done our first pour for the first silo and things are starting to gain some momentum here,” said Pinnacle Renewable Energy president and COO Leroy Reitsma, noting that the first pour took place on Oct. 31. “ W e a t h e r dependent, I think we’re going to make a good run for the next couple of months...At this point in time we’re starting the crews up as construction progresses. “We’ve got concrete crews on site today along with some excavating crews and we anticipate sheet metal work to begin in about three weeks.” Along with the silos for the terminal, to be located at the old Westview Terminal site along the harbour, Reitsma said Pinnacle will have some track realignment work to do as well. But the first pour is just the inaugural step in a construction project that will take almost a year to complete. “We’re looking for the first handling of product to take place around next September,” said Reitsma.

u Anti-union

Ghoulish crossing…

Labour Relations Board rules against hospital By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

At Your Service

The Labour Relations Board has ruled that members of Northern Health operated in an anti-union manner when it comes to the replacement of the aging steam boiler at the hospital. The announcement of boiler replacement came in September of last year, and Northern Health pointed to cost savings as a key reason for the move. However, without a steam boiler the five steam engineer positions that were under the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) were eliminated and new maintenance positions were created in the Hospital Employee’s Union (HEU). According to the ruling from the labour board, Michael Curnes was hired by Northwest Health Administrator Sheila Gordon-Payne in May of 2010 as Manager of Facilities and Support Service which made him the supervisor for the five union members. But Curnes found the union “to be uncooperative and difficult” and “felt that the bargaining unit members were actively trying to frustrate his efforts” when he wanted to have the steam engineers perform general

hospital maintenance. In March 2011, after learning of the opportunity to upgrade the boiler to an electrical system, a business case prepared by Curnes recommended that boiler be replaced, that the five IUOE positions be eliminated – with the document noting that there were over 30 outstanding labour issues with the five members - and that three HEU maintenance positions be advertised for. A June 16, 2011 backgrounder went further pointing out that “displacing the 5 IUOE employees in this department and reposting these positions as HEU Maintenance Worker IIIs we anticipate will bring to an end the labour/management gridlock PRRH/NH has been embroiled in the past 18 months”. Any mention of union conflict was removed in a revised Business Case that was sent out on June 23, 2011. On July 11, 2011, the section 54 notice to change the collective agreement was served to the appropriate authorities and on July 15 Northern Health posted for four HEU maintenance positions in Prince Rupert. While the hospital refuted antiunion motivation in replacing the boiler by pointing out the decision

While the final business case didn’t include any mention of union grievances, the Board stated that those making the decision would have been aware of those concerns based on past backgrounders and business cases presented. “I further find that the members of management involved in this

Initiative were aware that the first ‘driving reason’ for the change was as set out in the first draft of the Business Case: ‘There are 30+ outstanding and escalating labour issues with IUOE and its 5 members at PRRH’. I further find that NHA management was supportive of this driving reason. They worked with Curnes to cleanse the formal documents of any anti-Union sentiments and to approve the Initiative so that it appeared only to be a pure technological change, and that the labour relations implications were a mere consequence,” reads

the ruling prepared by vice-chair Ritu Mahil. “I find that these members of the management team were aware of Curnes’ motivations and were to varying extents supportive of that motive. Accordingly, the Employer was motivated, at least in part, by anti-Union animus in designing and approving the technological change to the boiler system of the Hospital.” The decision closed with a ruling that future proceedings between the parties before the Labour Relation Board will address the question of remedy.

◆ CBC SHOW

Inland Air anxiously awaiting word on The Big Decision By Martina Perry The Northern View

PET OF THE WEEK

Inland Air Charters owner Bruce MacDonald is anxiously waiting to find out if his business will be funded by entrepreneurial icon, Jim Treliving. But like the rest of Canada, MacDonald will have to wait until Tuesday, Nov. 20 at nine p.m. when The BIG Decision airs on CBC to find out his business’ fate. MacDonald applied to

the show earlier in the year requesting expert advice on investment to reach oversea markets. “It’s been a really good learning experience for us. We learned an awful lot about getting a new market. You just can’t buy that,” MacDonald told the Prince Rupert Northern View. MacDonald isn’t at liberty to expose what happened during filming of the episode, but no matter which way they decide he says he is appreciative.

“Irregardless of what happens in the show, we had some tremendous exposure and we’re going to get even more nation-wide,” he said. “We got what we needed. It’s not necessarily money we were looking for.” Jim Treliving and a television crew traveled to Prince Rupert to record the episode back in September. Most known as the chairman and owner of Boston Pizza, Treliving also has investments in real estate, sports and Mr. Lube.

Obituaries

Raymond (Ray) Harold Conat born October 12, 1951 passed away peacefully on October 28 in St. Paul’s Hospital. Survived by his wife Leslie of 36 years, son Kristopher (Michelle), Daughter Lisa (Jay), Grandchildren Alyssa, Chloe, Paige, Madison & Kole. Brothers Mervin, Herb (Verna), Sisters Ellen (Kerry), Rusty (Ken), and many many nieces and nephews, cousins, Aunts and Uncles. Predeceased by his parents Harold & Lucille Conat. Ray grew up in Langley where he met and married Leslie in 1976. In those years Ray worked road construction paving in the lower mainland and interior. In 1979 Kristopher was born and shortly after that the family moved to Prince Rupert. Ridley Island was just starting up and Ray went to work as an operator for the next few years. In 1982 Lisa was born and the Conat family was complete. The family spent many years camping, fishing and loving the outdoors. Family outings (slow travels) were always fun never knowing how many stops Ray would have to make. The older he got the more stops he made. Ray loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. Family was so important to him. In 1995 he decided he wanted to be a Mobile Crane Operator and off he went to the Operating Engineers Training Centre where he started and completed his apprenticeship. Over the next 17 years Ray worked for many different companies traveling between Alberta and BC. He was quite the collector. He loved the garage sales, junk piles, and anything that was old. Thinking it was a treasure he would bring things home and add to his ever-growing collection. Most years in September Ray and Les would travel to their favourite spot Gray Bay where they would spend a couple of weeks camping and fishing for Coho, having a great time. Ray requested there be no service. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to the charity of your choice.

Honouring the sacrifices of the fallen On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, people across Canada come together for a moment of silence to honour the men and women who gave their lives fighting for this country and the freedoms and liberties that are taken for granted. For many Canadians, particularly those born in the last 50 years, the concept of war is something that is only ever seen through television and news reports. But since the First World War, which took place between 1914 and 1918, more than 1.5 million Canadians have served the country as part of military operations, including World War II from 1939 to 1945 and the Korean War from 1950 to

250.624.9060 - Reservations 1.800.668.3115

1953. Sadly, more than 100,000 Canadian lost their lives during military service that ensured their fellow Canadians could live in peace. By observing the moment of silence, attending ceremonies across the country and teaching young Canadians about the significance of Remembrance Day, the sacrifices of those who fought for Canada will live on. Everybody knows Remembrance Day falls on November 11, but it is important to know the significance of that day and, in fact, that time. November 11, 1918, signaled the end of the World War I as Germany and the Allies, including Canada, signed an armistice treaty in Compiegne Forest in

France to bring an end to military actions in Europe. The 11th hour of the day is also significant, as it was at 11 a.m. France time that the treaty was to come into effect. Perhaps what is the most recognizable symbols of Remembrance Day is the poppy, a blood red flower that grows on the former battlefields in France and Belgium. The flowers are also indelibly linked with Remembrance Day through the poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, who wrote the poem about the poppies found among the graves of soldiers.

Legion opening new location this Remembrance Day By Martina Perry The Northern View

Martina Perry photo

Royal Canadian Legion members and volunteers gathered at the new space on Oct. 25 to continue renovations. From left is veteran/volunteer David Hill, veteran/volunteer Dave Walker, club president Bruce Rempel, legion member/volunteer Bernard Danes, Legion treasurer Hazel Bott, Legion first vicepresident John Husoy and secretary Marie Lewis. 

After spending years meeting at various locations around town, the Royal Canadian Legion No. 27 will soon have a space to call their own. With remodelling currently underway, the club will be holding a gathering at the new building after the Remembrance Day ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 11. The local legion has organized Remembrance Day ceremonies in the community for decades, with this year’s gathering starting in front of Safeway at 10:30 a.m. Veterans and members of the public will walk in a parade before mustering outside of the Court House at 11 a.m.

After the service on Remembrance Day, there will be a gathering the new Legion building on Third Avenue West for adults. The old building was shut down for financial reasons in 2005, and after a year of negotiations, the club purchased the Third Avenue space with funds remaining from the sale of the prior building. Volunteers have been assisting with renovations every Thursday between seven and nine p.m. and on Sundays between one and four p.m. but the Legion still needs all the help it can get. “Help us get our doors open quicker,” Marie Lewis, club secretary, said to potential volunteers. The legion is planning to put

a museum in the front corner of the building, and is asking for donations from the community. Donations can be brought down to the Legion on Thursday and Sunday, while volunteers and club members are doing renovations. To generate revenue, the club will be selling memorabilia such as t-shirts and photos, and will also be running a kitchen for members. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch # 27 has served Prince Rupert since the 1920s, donating countless funds to various community groups with a focus on youth and veterans. Potential volunteers or people wishing to donate items for the museum are encouraged to call the legion at 250-622-2917.

Strict marine safety standards will ensure we respect our neighbours above, around and below us.

Although tankers have been safely navigating the north coast and its channels for decades, marine safety remains a top priority for British Columbians. We have been planning the Northern Gateway Project for over a decade, with a particular focus on protecting the environment. We have added specific safety requirements to our marine operations plan to help make the waters of the north coast safer not just for tankers serving the project, but for all marine vessels.

Tankers will reduce speeds in the channels…

Qualified BC Coast Pilots will board and guide all tankers… To prevent spills, all tankers serving the project will be modern and double-hulled, and will be vetted by independent, third party agencies before entering Canadian waters. Once strict safety and environmental standards are met, they will be guided through the Douglas and Principe Channels by qualified BC Coast Pilots.

Tankers travel slowly, but to make sure that marine species and their habitats are respected, tankers will be required to reduce speed as they pass through certain sections of the channels. Even their escort tugboats will have quieter engines to reduce underwater noise.

Powerful tugboats will escort tankers… Additional radar and navigational aids will improve safety for all vessels…

Tugboats have been shown to significantly reduce tanker incidents worldwide. Powerful tugboats that have been specially commissioned for Northern Gateway will assist in the safe arrival and departure of tankers. All tankers will be attended by a close escort tug. In the channels, laden tankers will have two tugs–one tethered at all times. These tugboats will have emergency response equipment on board and will be capable of assisting any marine vessel.

Ad #EN018-11/12E REV

For increased safety and sure guidance, additional radar systems and navigational aids, such as beacons, buoys and lights, will be installed throughout the routes. This will not only improve safety for tankers, but for all marine traffic on the north coast.

Discover more about our rigorous marine safety plan and join the conversation at marine.northerngateway.ca.

It’s more than a pipeline.

It’s a path to delivering energy safely.
