Sawmill open for business A full crew of Terrace workers showed up for shift Monday as Skeena Sawmills swung into full operation. The sawmill, which prior to this summer hadn’t cut a log since 2007, now employs 50 local workers and is expected to hire more according to mill officials. After a lumber-making test period this summer, the sawmill has secured enough buyers for its lumber to operate from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. “That means employment for the people in Terrace first and foremost,” said Gian Sandhu, spokesman for Roc Holdings Ltd., the company which owns the mill. “And it means that there’s going to be some wood produced and we’re going to look forward to better economic conditions for everyone in the town.” The mill will be making specialty sized lumberproducts and has secured customers in China, Alberta and the eastern Canadian market, explained Sandhu.

“Our intent is to push the button on Monday morning and then keep going,” he said last week. While keeping going in lumber and logging is never a sure bet as it’s a commodity, economic conditions for sales look good right now said Sandhu adding one hitch the company currently faces is finding the log supply to make more lumber. The company has three cutting licences in the area — TFL 41, which is a tree farm, and two forest licences, one of which is in the Nass. The three amount to an allowable cut of 317,000 cubic metres per year. Whether or not a second shift will start up is dependent on log supply, said Sandhu. “We’re working on different relationships with stakeholders who own logs in the area. If we’re able to tie log supply for the second shift we’ll put that on,” he said.

College suspends mechanics program NORTHWEST COMMUNITY College has suspended its heavy duty mechanics program, citing low demand and old equipment as the prime reasons. Senior college official Beverley Moore-Garcia said applications and registrations dropped as people realized the kind of equipment they would train on was outdated compared to industry standards. “It was really intertwined,” she said of how one circumstance affected the other as word spread about the state of the college’s equipment. “We knew we were reaching a point where we could not be providing the desired learning outcomes on what we could offer.” Moore-Garcia said the college turned out one last apprentice

group in the spring after which it decided not to offer an introductory class, called a foundations class, this fall. The foundations program could take up to 16 students and cost approximately $91,000 which was provided by the Industry Training Authority, a provincial agency aimed at generating skilled trade employees. The decision comes at a time when the college has been recasting itself as a trades and training centre for the region in anticipation of the need for skilled trades employees on billions of dollars of large industrial projects either underway or planned. Just this fall, college officials began lobbying local government officials for support in seeking $45

million for a fully-equipped new trades building at its Terrace campus. Moore-Garcia said the foundations class instructor also retired this year and efforts are underway to find a replacement. The college also applied for a portion of the $17 million the provincial government said it was providing this fall to improve trades training based on a review of programs across the province. Moore-Garcia wouldn’t reveal how much money the college wants other than to say it is substantial and is needed for replacement equipment and equipment it has never had before. “We had a consultant from the [advanced education] ministry come up and look at our facilities,”

she said. “That review hasn’t been completed.” There’s no word as to when the province will announce how much money the college will get but Premier Christy Clark, while in Prince George in September, said $5 million of the $17 million will be sent to northern colleges and that the College of New Caledonia in Prince George can expect a “good portion” of that northern $5 million. Moore-Garcia said the decision to suspend was difficult but was the only one that could be made. “It needed to be addressed and that’s a statement of fact. Budgets are tight through every ministry,” she said. The decision also worked against the college’s philosophi-

cal foundation that people who are trained in the north will stay in the north, she added. The college was fortunate enough to be able to keep the $91,000 it received from the Industry Training Authority for the nowsuspended heavy duty mechanics program and spent it in other trades areas. It also received $839,000 from the province in the spring to spend on trades training and will be using that money on a program intended to introduce trades to high school students. The idea is to expose students to various trades in Grades 10 and 11 so they’ll have a better idea of what’s involved should they wish to pursue one specific trade, said Moore-Garcia.

Vandals saw power pole BC HYDRO estimates the cost of vandalism to a power pole just outside of Caledonia Senior Secondary to be more than $25,000. The attempt by someone to cut through the power pole in the early morning hours of Oct. 29 resulted in the school being closed that day while the pole was replaced. Two teen boys, one 17 and one 15, were arrested and have now been charged with mischief endangering life, said police. “We would definitely be looking at options to cover costs,” said BC Hydro official Dave Mosure of the more than $25,000 that was spent by the provincial crown corporation. Recovering costs could mean going through civil court, he added. The teens, who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, were arrested Oct. 29 after witnesses called police at 2:48 a.m. early that morning to report two figures in


BC HYDRO workers replace a power pole by Caledonia that someone had tried to saw through in the early morning hours of Oct. 29. dark clothing looking as if they were trying to saw through a power pole outside of Caledonia, said Terrace RCMP. Two people ran when they saw police but officers followed and found two people attempting to hide in bushes on the nearby Howe Creek Trail, police said. Officers then followed footprints in the snow that had recently

fallen and recovered a hand saw, police added. The pole had nearly been sawn through, officers at the scene reported. BC Hydro and Telus lines plus an anchoring guy wire held the pole and kept it from falling over, said Mosure who called the scene a dangerous situation as the pole could’ve broken off and fallen, injuring

anyone in the area. The pole was cut almost like loggers would cut it, and if it had come down, it would’ve been straight down on the teens as it “flopped down on top of itself,” said Mosure. “They were in an amazing amount of peril, whether they realized that or not,” said Mosure of the people who cut the pole.

BC Hydro was told that this area was where school buses dropped off students, he added. A Terrace BC Hydro pole replacement truck, which has an arm with grappling hands instead of a bucket to lift a person, arrived and used its grappling hands to support the damaged pole until another crew from Prince Rupert could come to assist with replacing the pole, said Mosure. In total, two crew members from Terrace and three from Prince Rupert plus two trucks were needed to replace the damaged pole, he said. Power was shut off to the school for the day Oct. 29 and turned back on around 2 p.m., Mosure added. There had to be a momentary outage to the surrounding neighbourhood as part of replacing the pole so about 300 homes went dark for a little bit, said Mosure. The two arrested teens were held in custody overnight before appearing in court.

Local resident tops in her class A LOCAL resident has been named valedictorian of the Certified Management Accountants Society of British Columbia’s certified management accountants graduating class of 2012. Khalie Genereauxachieved the highest standing in the two-year strategic leadership program, the hallmark of the Certified Management Accountant designation, the society said in a press release last week.

In addition, Genereaux was presented with the Gold Medal Award for achieving the highest aggregate standing in British Columbia for the certified management accountants national entrance exam and the strategic leadership program. Genereaux is currently a business manager for Progressive Ventures Construction in Terrace, a regional construction and development company. Prior to enrolling in the

management accounts program, Genereaux completed her Bachelor of Arts in Economics at Simon Fraser University. “What an incredible achievement it is to be first in the province,” said Lael McKeown, co-owner of Progressive Ventures. “We are very proud to have Khalie as part of our team.” “On behalf of the society, I congratulate Khalie for her tremendous accomplishments,

and wish her and the entire 2012 graduating class a successful career as strategic management accountants,” said Vinetta Peek, president and chief executive officer of the Certified Management Accountants Society of B.C. The Certified Management Accountants Society of British Columbia awards the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) designation to qualified candidates in British Columbia.

THE NORTHWEST jobless rate was virtually unchanged from October to November, indicate figures released last week by Statistics Canada. In September the jobless rate was 10.5 per cent, dropping very slightly to 10.3 per cent in October — still over 3 points above the provincial average. That dip is reflected in the number of people considered unemployed — 4,400 in October compared to 4,500 in September. The northwest jobless rate is not the number of people collecting Employment Insurance. Instead it is based on interviews of people from the north coast to just this side of Vanderhoof who consider themselves as part of the workforce whether they are employed or not. “Clearly the way the activity is counted doesn’t reflect the level of economic activity,” said Pat Bell, the provincial minster responsible for labour, noting that people who work in camps here in the northwest wouldn’t necessarily be counted as part of the northwest employment numbers. The size of the northwest survey area might also play into the discrepancies between the economic activity here in Terrace and the high jobless rate, he said, citing the fact that Burns Lake is in our area and the closing of the mill there may be affecting the numbers. The labour force, defined as people who are working as well as people who are looking for work, remained the same at 42,900. Overall, the northwest jobless picture is dimmer than this time last year when the jobless rate was 8.2 per cent. Last October the labour force was calculated to be 48,800, a clear 5,900 people more than October’s tally of 42,900 people. B.C.’s overall jobless rate fell 0.3 percentage points from September to October, to 6.7 per cent, as fewer people regarded themselves as being part of the workforce. “It was a tough month for B.C. on the jobs front,” said Bell. As well, the number of workers in B.C. dropped by 11,000 from September to October, with 8300 of those jobs falling under the manufacturing sector and heavier losses in the lower mainland. Year-over-year employment growth for the province was 1.3 per cent, indicates Statistics Canada. The theme of very little movement from September to October was also reflected in the national rate. It was 7.4 per cent in October, the same as it was in September. City council did have a chance to bring up the northwest’s high unemployment rate when it met with provincial deputy jobs minister Dave Byng recently. Councillor Stacey Tyers noted that a provincial pilot program to take able-bodied people off of welfare and place them in construction jobs in northern B.C. is being offered in Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson and Fort St. John but not in Terrace. Byng did not have an immediate answer but did say the province was working with Northwest Community College on skills training programs aimed at introducing apprentice trades opportunities to high school students. “We do see the college as a key enabler,” he said. Tyers and fellow city councillor Bruce Bidgood questioned Byng as to why 200 Chinese underground miners were being sent to northeastern BC. “The government knew for several years [that jobs were coming,]” said Bidgood. Byng said the jobs in question are temporary at an exploratory coal mine project and that there is no guarantee the result will be a fully operational coal mine. The ministry is, however, looking at providing people with the appropriate skills for underground mining employment.

RCAF veteran passes away A GRAVESIDE service was held Oct. 26 for John Shaw who passed away Oct. 12 following a lengthy illness. Shaw, at the age of 92, was one of the older surviving veterans of the Second World War in the area. The service was attended by two nephews of Shaw’s from Alberta and a friend from Las Vegas, said Charlie Meek who conducted the service as past president of the Branch 13, the Royal Canadian Legion. Also in attendance were members of Branch 13 in accordance with the branch’s philosophy of recognizing those who served their country. “He was a veteran and we gave him a veteran’s tribute,” said Meek. “He’s one of the last in our area. Sadly, the ranks are getting thinner. He was also a quiet man and very appreciative of the work of the branch.” Shaw lived on his own until circumstances placed him first at Mills Memorial Hospital and then at Terraceview Lodge. Born in Calgary, Alberta in 1920, Shaw’s mother was a school teacher and his father was a farmer. He lived

with his parents in Pine Lake, Alberta and then Drumheller, also in Alberta, before moving back to Calgary. Shaw also worked in Banff where he enjoyed the twin pursuits of photography and painting. He then joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 18 and trained in Manitoba before being posted to Dartmouth on the east coast. Shaw served as spotter in long range patrol aircraft, looking for both German submarines and Allied survivors of ships that had been sunk. Following his discharge in 1945, Shaw worked in the Alberta gas and oil fields in the Turner Valley and for five summers, worked in provincial parks. When he moved west to Terrace, Shaw worked at the Tillicum Twin Theatre. In 1974, Shaw worked at Seal Cove in Prince Rupert and with the Canadian Coast Guard. He retired in 1984 and continued to live in Terrace. Legion members wore poppies during the tribute as a symbol of respect.

Visit made to grave of fallen soldier By LAUREN BENN


RIC BENNETT and Glen Olver of Terrace kneel behind the grave of John Little who died as a prisoner of war in Japan. Little’s tombstone is located at the Sai Wan War Cemetery in northeastern Hong Kong Island. It was built in 1946, a memorial for commonwealth soldiers.

TWO TERRACE residents travelled to Hong Kong Island this fall to pay tribute to a fallen soldier who was born and raised here. Among the 1,528 grave sites at Hong Kong’s Sai Wan Bay War Cemetery is that of John Little, nephew of Terrace’s founder George Little and brother to 86-year-old Terrace resident Grace Warner. Ric Bennett and Glen Olver of Terrace visited Little’s grave in mid-October, planting two Canadian flags at his grave and performing a Royal Canadian Legion tribute in his memory. Having driven past the John Little Memorial Falls 35 km west of Terrace along Hwy16 many times, Olver said making the trip was meaningful to him. “To be able to go back and actually see where he rests, it’s quite something,” he said. Bennett, also a long-time Terrace resident and military-history enthusiast, agrees. “We’re lucky to be Canadian,” he said, adding the lives of those who fought for this country were traded for freedom today. But times were different then. Grace Warner remembers her brother John as a strong, kind young man who was good to his parents. “He milked cows while he was still going to school,” Warner said. “One milking went to one family and one came to our house and we were seven kids. Depression days.” At 19, Little joined the army while working in Prince Rupert, stopping by his Terrace home for a brief visit before heading to train as a signalman, a military communications job, in Nova Scotia. On Oct. 27, 1941, Little was one of 1,975 Canadians to board a boat to Hong Kong from Vancouver — soon to be one of the first Canadian ground troops to fight in the Second World War. Stationed with the Winnipeg Grenadiers, the battalion and the Royal Rifles of Canada were given the job of defending Hong Kong.

Long before the ship sailed, the prospect of defending Hong Kong against a Japanese attack seemed in doubt. Debate swirled within British military and political circles as to the importance of Hong Kong, whether it could be defended and even if troops there should be reinforced. An official policy of not sending reinforcements was reversed in late 1941 under the theory that this would give pause to Japanese attack plans. Many Canadian troops sent weren’t heavily armed and were not fully trained. Little, along with 554 other Canadians who fought in the Battle of Hong Kong alongside him, never did return home. On December 8, 1941, Japanese forces attacked the Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong and by Dec. 11, the Winnipeg Grenadiers would become the first Canadian battalion to fight in the Second World War. After barely two weeks, Canadian and other British and British Empire forces surrendered. “It was Christmas Day,” said Warner. “I remember that we were all at the table at Christmas and at that time we didn’t have a radio, and our uncle (George Little) came down from their house, walked down the street to our house, to tell us that Hong Kong had fallen.” At the time, Warner remembers hearing her brother was wounded. Later, word about his capture travelled home, as did news after Little’s death. “When mom got the word, it was June that he had died in a prison camp,” said Warner. Records show Little died of dysentery on June 4, 1942. “He just went too soon,” said Warner, adding she is touched that Bennett and Olver visited her brother’s grave. “I think it was a lovely thing that Ric Bennett did,” she said. Bennett plans to share photos of his trip with Warner and family.

Out front EVERYONE probably has an example of a derelict or otherwise severely rundown building located somewhere in the city they like to talk about. So does city council, and judging by the looks of things, its list may be long and extensive. It’s fairly well known that the city is focussing on Little Ave., the short gravelled street just east of the arena and aquatic complex, named after city founder George Little. The city has had its eye on three properties there, including one which has a place in local history, that of a Red Cross hospital, Terrace’s first. But on Park Ave., just one street over from Little Ave., sits a house that’s been boarded up for years. And what of the two-storey building on Kalum St., right across the street from the law courts. That’s also been boarded up for years. There may be reasons to allow buildings to fall into states of disrepair. But these reasons must be temporary and cannot be allowed to become permanent, particularly if those same buildings contain tenants. That city council is meeting in private on the matter of derelict and abandoned buildings may speak to the delicate nature of individual circumstances. But there are overarching matters of health and safety to consider. It’s past time city council initiates a public discussion aimed at creating a definitive policy. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

ctober 27 was one of those “Where were you when ...?” dates we will talk about for years, like JFK’s assassination and the Twin Towers’ collapse. I was alone, sitting at my computer on an office chair with rollers and a padded seat, TV remote in hand, scanning Channel 11 for a decent program or movie to watch, when I thought I felt my chair seat begin rocking gently, side to side. The motion intensified. Was I having a heart attack? Or a stroke? Like a jumbo jet pilot reviewing his console’s toggles and switches before takeoff, I ran a mental check: no dizziness; no rainbow vision; no heart palpitations. Then I felt my chair roll from side to side as much as two to three inches. “Ah ha!”, I wondered, “can this be an earthquake?” When the 12 ounce, 16” long Zwilling J. A.

As a precaution, the Terrace arena closed. “No hockey for you!” What caught my attention was Hanomansing saying when he reported in Kobe, Japan after their 6.8 magnitude earthquake in 1995, in a sea of demolished buildings one block of houses stood intact, all built from B.C. lumber to B.C. code. I relaxed a tad about my basement creaks as qualified construction personnel had built this house. Following such a harrowing evening, I expected to sleep poorly, and to be awakened by aftershocks of nearly the same magnitude. To be ready to escape the house if necessary, I slept in my day clothes. Inexplicably, I had my most restful sleep in weeks. I’ve since noticed my desktop computer had swivelled and no longer sat parallel to the desk. Many of the books on my bookshelves had hitched forward an inch or more. Yet tall stacks of magazines waiting to be reshelved since painting my kitchen did not topple or even fan out.

Back upstairs, I tried to phone family, first on the mobile unit which rang once, before clicking off, then on the wall phone. It was dead. My next move was to email family in other provinces so they wouldn’t worry about my welfare, though given the hour, I knew some of them would already be gone to bed. At 8:28 p.m. The Province emailed a news alert proclaiming we had experienced a 7.7 magnitude earthquake. I pasted The Province’s bulletin into my email and sent it off at 8:40 p.m. Before my email reached Saskatchewan, a neighbour on his way to hockey pounded on my door to ask if everything here was okay. I assured him it was. As soon as telephone service was restored, my family checked on each other.

The Mail Bag Gas guys need to explain

file PHOTO

CHINESE workers were brought to Canada to work on rail construction projects in the latter part of the 19th century.

Wrong to import workers

Dear Sir: It’s hogwash that the governments are bringing in Chinese workers to work in our mines. The first time I heard of this was from our MP, Nathan Cullen, when he said a 747 load of Chinese workers would be flown in regularly to Fort McMurray and housed in a camp. Why would this happen and why would Canadians not be employed?


The oil sands at Fort McMurray are like an open pit mine. We have more than enough trained people for this work. Why cannot they be trained at our college? And now I hear the governments and companies are going to bring in more Chinese workers to work in underground mines in northeastern B.C. This is more hogwash. The governments say that’s because there are no

trained Canadians. But the governments have had years to train people, people who used to work in the forest industry, for these jobs. What will our young people do? What happened to the money from the federal government that was supposed to go to training? Someone needs to provide some answers here. George Chinn, Terrace, B.C.

Dear Sir: Can a natural gas pipeline be converted to carry oil? Apparently so. This and many other distressing facts were shared with our community on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012 by Andrew Nikiforuk, an award-winning Canadian journalist. I live in the Kispiox Valley approximately 30 km north of Hazelton, B.C. Our community recently noticed a flurry of helicopters flying up the Kispiox Valley. The helicopters had geo-mapping equipment attached to their runners. It was eventually brought to light that the helicopters were hired by Spectra Gas and that they were mapping out a proposed natural gas pipeline that would run from the Peace River country through our area, crossing several rivers and going all the way to Prince Rupert. On Tuesday, Oct. 16, along with many other British Columbians, I received a phone call inviting me to a town-hall meeting that was to commence momentarily. It was hosted by Spectra Gas and they were inviting people to take part in an information session about their proposed project. There was no advance notice of this event. The few people who did take part in our area never had their questions addressed. I am told that the audience was heavily loaded with supporters from Alberta. I was so angered by the lack of notice and respect from this company that I feared I would be unable to comport myself well, so declined the offer to participate. We fear that this town hall meeting is Spectra Gas’s attempt at consultation. Carol Ponchet-Cassidy, Hazelton, B.C.

Those who don’t plan will be in trouble

he Kitimat-Terrace Industrial Development Society (KTIDS) and its partners are to be congratulated for their decision to reach out to the Peace River region agencies to learn and benefit from their experiences with rapid industrial expansion. To learn from those who have “been there, done that” is a sensible strategy. Too many agencies, especially in government, tend to prefer inventing the wheel time and time again. The study, carried out by the University of Northern British Columbia’s Community Development Institute, examined 12 socio-economic topic areas potentially affected by major development. The focus of the study within each of these areas was on pressures experienced, on actions taken in response to these pressures, and on advice arising from the Peace River experience. The leading recommendations call for attention to communications, to research and information, and to planning. If nothing

else, the recommendations confirm that KTIDS is on the right track: the society communicated with another region in search of information essential to its planning. Well done. Readers may be tempted to skim over the pressure and action points listed in the report, moving directly to the advice given. Here is what we need to do in Terrace when the anticipated industrial boom begins. That approach, however, would squander the report’s most valuable finding: the importance of research. The greatest benefit Terrace and other regions stand to gain from the study is likely to come from paying close attention not to what actions Peace River took, but to the causes of the pressures experienced by that region’s many agencies. Listed under the “Pressures” heading we find repeated references to adverse conditions such as lack of communication, lack of information, lack of coordination, and superficial planning. Research. The word itself leads us to the starting point which is to

g u e s t c o mm e n t

ANDRE CARREL search, to search again, and then to take another look. What is the state of the community’s physical infrastructure? What is the availability and affordability of housing in Terrace? What are the capacities of our protective services and how effective is their cooperation and coordination? What are the strengths, weaknesses, and capacities in our community — not only financial but also physical, organizational,

and structural — in these and the other sectors examined in the Peace River study? The UNBC study offers Terrace a useful starting point for the kind of research we need to do. Rapid development has a potential for significant upfront costs that precede the benefits of development. From a financial perspective, the current political climate is less than ideal for communities facing the prospect of rapid industrial development. We find ourselves in a period of political uncertainty as it concerns the availability and relevance of, and access to, provincial and federal government programs. This uncertainty accentuates the urgency for sober research into the community’s capabilities to respond appropriately to a rapid rise in demand in critical service areas. We may have an idea, but we cannot know when growth and development pressures will emerge. When that time comes it is important to understand how po-

tential pressure points are linked: if A happens, what would be the likely impact on B and on C? We cannot rely on good luck to help the community cope with the challenges and consequences of rapid development. A community needs to plan if it hopes to minimize the negative impacts and consequences of rapid industrial development. The purpose of an industrial development plan is to identify potential pressure points, to examine and evaluate practical responses, and from that basis to provide coordinated and purposeoriented direction for community decisions in response to proposed major industrial projects. The likelihood of a community realizing long-term benefits from industrial development depends on its commitment to a disciplined approach to research and planning. Being prepared makes it possible for development to benefit both investors and the community. Andre Carrel is a retired public sector administrator living in Terrace, B.C.

Schools report slight decline in students

ENROLMENT numbers for Terrace and area schools that are not part of the Coast Mountains school district are, for the most part, slightly down from last year. But the numbers this school year are at about

what most schools were expecting. Veritas Catholic School has 196 students in its kindergarten to Grade 7 classes this year, down from 203 last year. The school says it

lost a few grade 7 students to the new Skeena Middle School which now teaches Grade 7 to Grade 9. The kindergarten to Grade 12 Centennial Christian School is down four students

from last year – 136 to 140. Mountain View Christian Academy, an elementary school, lost the most students this year. They are down to 51 from 68 last year.

Some of the students transferred to public school or decided to go back to home schooling, said Ann Matthews, secretary at Mountain View. “Some come to us from a home school

background and then they realize they want a bit more of that,” she said. But école Jack Cook, part of the Conseil Scolaire Francophone school district that covers all of B.C., was one

school that saw a slight increase in numbers. It has 35 students this year, up from 32 last year. “It is what we were anticipating, and as per usual,” said principal Renée Syvret.

Keep on trucking

You’re not alone if you’ve noticed an increase in the amount of truck and large vehicle traffic on the roads in the region. Rio Tinto Alcan’s rebuilding of its aluminum smelter in Kitimat, the construction of BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line, work on various runof-river hydro-electric projects and continuing activity at the Prince Rupert port are all contributing. It’s also a different kind of industrial traffic compared to the old days when logging trucks bound for sawmills and chip trucks heading to pulp mills were visible on northwestern highways. For example, three new buses that made an appearance in Terrace recently represent another sign of the growing economic impact of Rio Tinto Alcan’s Kitimat aluminum smelter project. The buses arrived in Terrace to be checked and certified for operations in Canada before being added to the existing fleet used by Kitimat-based Haisla Shuttle to transport workers back and forth from the project’s construction camp to the massive construction site. When added to the fleet, Haisla Shuttle will have nearly 20 buses available to service the needs of the more than 1,000 people living in the project’s construction camp and working on the project. Haisla Shuttle owner Jim Gristwood said he began servicing the construction project approximately 18 months ago and that business has been increasing ever since. The service currently employs 13 drivers. Haisla Shuttle does, however, make trips to the Northwest Regional Airport but just on weekends and only for Bechtel, one of the key companies involved in the $3.3 billion smelter rebuild. The Haisla shuttle service It also takes people to and from the Kitimat Valley Institute.

Rio Tinto Alcan official Colleen Nyce said the service is used by 500 to 600 people each day. “Rio Tinto Alcan and its Kitimat Modernization Project place significant value on the contributions of local businesses to supply goods and services wherever possible,” she said. “It has long been our commitment to maximize local content on Kitimat Modernization Project when and wherever possible. We are very proud of the level of local engagement achieved to this point.” Gristwood is also the principal behind Haisla Taxi and Kitimat’s HandyDart service. The demand for truck and large vehicle service has also pushed up the demand for drivers. Sid Bandstra of Bandstra Transportation Services says finding drivers can be a challenge. “To a degree, demographics come into play and there is now a fair amount of employment in this area,” he said. It’s also not surprising that the demand is highest for drivers who are already experienced and fully qualified. It can take as long as a year to fully train a driver, a process Bandstra describes as being akin to an apprenticeship program. “We’ll start people with our trucks we use in town and then work them into our system,” he said. Bandstra did add that finding long-haul drivers can be a particular challenge because changing lifestyles mean more people want to be closer to home. Provincial statistics indicate there are about 23,000 registered trucking companies in B.C. In 2005, trucks transported 66.7 million shipments, carrying 6.15 billion tons of cargo. And Statistics Canada has coined a phrase to show the trucking industry’s reach across the country: If you got it, a truck brought it. A13

Regional landfill plan just doesn’t add up Dear Sir: After 10 years of hidden studies and the expenditure of an unpublicized $800,000, you may have thought that all I’s would be dotted and T’s crossed regarding the Kitimat-Stikine regional district’s waste plan that involves the Forceman Ridge location between Terrace and Kitimat. Well, not quite. Amid all the open house technical glitter you were unlikely to have realized that the landfill is 70 acres of leachate, contained only by a plastic liner 1/16th of an inch thick or that an Olympic-sized swimming pool of treated effluent will be dumped to ground every 10 days. Even the main consultant was moved to ask the audience where else would you put the dump. Well, the sensible answer to that question is: 1. Anywhere but on a gully upstream of Clearwater Lakes two kilometers away, or 2. Upstream of the Lakelse Lake Provincial Wetlands Park, labelled as a biologically exceptional wetlands complex three kilometers away, or 3. Upwind of Mount Layton Hotsprings listed as the hottest spring water in Canada and five kilometers away, or 4. At a location with up to double the rainfall of the existing dumps, or

...because we live here.

5. Sitting on top of 150 feet of dry sand and gravel with ruinous decontamination costs if the liner fails. The design may be fine but the site’s not right. So what now? Despite the failure of the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine’s own terms of reference to adequately consult the public on matters of facility siting, the directors representing Nass, Meziadin, Hazelton, Kispiox, Moricetown, Cedarvale, Kitimat, Terrace, Thornhill, Dease Lake, Telegraph Creek, Iskut, Bob Quinn and Stewart, areas that are not near the location, have had the power to decide if proceeding with this site is okay with them. What happened to openness and accountability? Is this our idea of democracy? Interestingly, the Ministry of Environment, once a stalwart supporter of the Lakelse watershed area, now has apparently no answers on the long term impacts of effluent dumping at this site but have what they are calling adaptive management for any problems that arise. Try using that excuse with your building inspector, fisheries officer or tax inspector. At the very least a referendum should have been called to allow for long avoided public feedback. Ian Maxwell, Terrace, B.C.

“Now that I’m retired we’re finally getting out to see the world. If experience has taught me anything it’s to always make sure you’re covered. ...that’s why we get our travel insurance through Western Financial Group.”

Dump plan needs courage Dear Sir: I was at the Oct. 19 regional district meeting and was disappointed in the outcome regarding the proposed Forceman Ridge landfill. It seems some of our representatives on the regional board are bent on creating a new scar on the landscape. While I am not a big fan of referendums, in this case I think it is only fair. Six of the 12 directors are appointed from the various communities and as such do not have much invested in the location, with the exception of the Terrace Mayor Dave Pernarowski and city councillor Bruce

Bidgood who I am sure will be happy to close their dump in favour of Forceman Ridge. Much is said about how the new dump will be run (liners for leachate collection, biological treatment, area for storage and sorting of recyclables). Where have these processes been for the last 20 -25 years? Recycling has been an issue in this area for as long as I can remember. Somewhere someone decided recycling has to pay for itself. It will cost, the payoff is the environment. I remember going to meetings about the Thornhill landfill 20 plus years

ago. Many of the same issues were brought up then. If this dump goes ahead I predict history will repeat itself. The technology exists to clean up the existing landfills.

Get serious about recycling. Show some courage and try to heal the scars by renewing the mandate of the existing landfills. Robert Todd, Terrace, B.C.

City urges bus line not to cut its service By LAUREN BENN

isn’t going to run the buses.” Cordeiro also pointed out that Greyhound isn’t planning to cancel its services here altogether, but make a reduction, meaning bus transportation will still be available. From Greyhound’s perspective, it is hoped that a reduction in the number of buses run-

ning means passenger numbers spread among trips now will funnel to the buses on the proposed schedule. “When you take these schedules off, that’s the direct cost saving in operating those, thus making those trips that are left more profitable,” said Grant Odsen, BC Greyhound passenger man-

ager. Despite running at an overall loss in B.C. of $14.1 million, Odsen said there are reasons the service continues to run in the province. “B.C. is part of a larger network that goes across Canada,” he said. “Even if we’re running at some kind of a loss … that helps to maintain the integrity of the

entire network.” While northern B.C. operates on the fringe of the company’s national network of bus services, Odsen said a reduction in services here is more appropriate than cancellation of services. “Again, it’s just part of network integrity … if we can get the changes we’re looking for, our hope is we can start

to generate profitability on those routes.” This falls in line with a suggestion from councillor Lynne Christiansen, that Greyhound work to make using its services more attractive to northern residents. And while the role and influence of government on private industry was discussed,

ultimately, council chose to sent a letter to B.C.’s Passenger Transportation Board, the regulatory body that governs such services in the province. “We’re here to represent the needs of our citizens,” said councillor Marylin Davies. Each person on council agreed, voting unanimously in favour.

The City of Terrace will be writing a local bus service provider urging it to not cut back service to northwestern residents. This decision came after recent news that Greyhound has applied to scale back the number of buses it operates running both eastbound and westbound from 2012 Terrace & District Chamber of Commerce Prince George to Prince 2012 Terrace & District Chamber of Commerce Rupert, stopping at multiple communities Business Excellence Awards Official Ballot en route.

Birthplace prompts MLA’s trip A CIRCUMSTANCE of birth led to Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin attending the annual Commonwealth Parliamentary Association conference last month in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Austin said he was walking into the Legislative buildings one day when Bill Barisoff, the Speaker of the House, tapped him on the shoulder and asked if it was true that his mother was born in Sri Lanka. “I wondered how he knew. Actually both my parents were born in Sri Lanka,” recalled Austin. And it was because of that connection with Sri Lanka that Austin said he was chosen to attend the conference as a delegate representing the Official Opposition in the Legislature. The cost of Austin’s attendance at the Sri Lankan conference – $19,468 to cover travel, accommodations and conference fees – was enough to place him at the top of the MLAs’ travel and living expense list for the six months ending Sept. 30 with a total spend of $53,606. Austin said B.C. has been a member of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association for years and that by tradition, the Speaker of the House and an opposition member attend along with the Clerk of the House. “Usually someone from the opposition is chosen by the [opposition] whip’s office,” said Austin. “I guess this time they knew of my family connections so they asked that I be the one.” Austin’s wife accompanied him and Barisoff’s wife accompanied him, making for a BC delegation of five people once the Clerk of the House was counted in. But although the wives of Austin and Barisoff went along, Austin said there was no extra expense. “The Speaker’s office deals with a travel agency and I guess the office handles so much travel that they got the tickets, business class tickets, as a two for one. They bought one and got the other for nothing,” said Austin. He said the Speaker’s office handled all of the travel and confer-

ence booking arrangements. If Austin was listed as the top spender, Barisoff had the second highest expense list at $46,410.

His out of country travel total was $5,648 but Austin said that’s because he had not yet filed all of his expenses on time to be included in the April to Septem-

ber tally. Norm Macdonald, a NDP MLA, was third with $45,332 while Stikine NDP MLA Doug Donaldson placed fourth at $42,678.

Liberal John Rustad, who represents the Nechako Lakes riding, was fifth at $39,653 and Gary Coons, who represents the NDP for the North Coast riding was

sixth with $37,514. Subtract Austin’s Speaker-approved costs for the parliamentary conference and his remaining expenses of $34,120 place him in

the mid-range of MLA spending. Austin spent $21,708 in general travel with a per diem total of $785. He spent $6,000 on accommodation while in Victoria.

Artist seeks graffiti wall

A LOCAL artist pitched a colourful compromise to Terrace’s city council last month, asking the city to help find a designated graffiti wall that could preserve an artistic subculture while hopefully reducing vandalism in the city. “I’m Matthew Christopher Daratha, a local artist trying to cut back on the chicken-scratch art around town here in Terrace B.C.,” he said, introducing himself to council Oct. 22. Daratha, who’s legally spray-painted expressions can be found on fire hydrants throughout the downtown core, said a designated wall could create a way for graffiti art to be supervised and controlled while providing an outlet for artists who prefer spray painting outdoor surfaces as their creative medium. “The artists would get the freedom to come and create any time of the day. The artists will not bother other businesses and tax paying citizens no longer have to worry about the cops trying to catch these artists at night,” he said. “A possible decrease in graffiti related crimes and increase in savings for local businesses.” Daratha also volunteered himself as the ‘graf police’, meaning he would supervise the wall and ensure racial slurs or other offensive content would be removed post haste. But during council’s questioning it was raised— are you sure this will work? “I just want to know the difference between art and graffiti,” asked councillor Marylin Davies, an artist and former teacher. “How would you control one from the other?” “I can’t stop the artists,” Daratha responded. “I’m just looking for someone else to place them.” Councillor Brian Downie dug a bit deeper in differentiating graffiti and art. “The rash of what we would call graffiti, but it’s really tagging, around town, is something that is vandalism,” he said. “It’s happening on top of signs ... I don’t see that having a wall is going to change that.” Downie expressed concern that a dedicated wall could be seen as a permissive gateway to more vandalism created by the city. “I don’t really think that what you’re proposing here is going to give us a lasting benefit in the community?” In response, Daratha shone light upon an aspect of the graffiti subculture. For those who want to paint and create art, it gives them a legal venue to paint in their style— with a graffiti war being when an artist white washes an existing artist’s work and paints over top with his or her distinct style, he said. “What you’re seeing out there is maybe four artists at war out there with each other’s art,” said

Matthew Daratha creates a piece of art at the old Co-op building in September 2010. Daratha. “There’s tag wars and there’s graffiti wars,” he said, adding that tagging is more like an artist (or vandal’s) distinct signature. “But that’s not art, its more like chicken scratch.” Initially, councillor Bruce Bidgood suggested council look to city staff to determine if any walls would be appropriate for such a purpose. But councillor James Cordeiro cautioned it needn’t go that far yet. “I think before it gets to that point the administration needs to look ... I think what was done at the [now-demolished] Co-op, while it may have had the best intentions proved to be just short of disastrous,” he said. Prior to the demolition, it was designated a graffiti-friendly space where even mayor Dave Pernarowski showed up to display his art. “Reviews are less than positive,” said Cordeiro. “I think a much more constructive project (would be) contacting local businesses to do murals. People will tag (regardless) to get gratification,” he added. “I’m inclined to support councillor Codeiro’s idea,” added Davies. Councillor Lynne Christiansen said council should investigate what’s being done to reduce graffiti vandalism and move toward how graffiti art is treated in other communities. In the end, council chose not to endorse the graffiti wall idea right away but to instead look into other avenues of outdoor artistic expression.

GATEWAY perspectives

Kitimat: A safe option 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. 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. Why Kitimat? Why the Douglas Channel? It’s the safe option for Gateway.

Alleged drug trafficker to remain behind bars AFTER SPENDING nearly two months in jail awaiting a hearing, a local man alleged to have trafficked in marijuana and cocaine was denied bail following a two-day hearing Oct. 30-31. David Harry Edwardsen, 49, has been in custody since his arrest Sept. 19 and is now at the Prince George Regional Correctional Centre. Judge Herman Seidemann III said he believed that Edwardsen was well-known and if released, he would not re-offend in a small community like Terrace as he might in a big city; however, he said that Edwardsen would be kept in jail to ensure that the public could maintain its confidence in the administration of justice. On Sept. 19, police executed five search warrants on five properties in Terrace and area – Edwardsen’s residence at 604 Old Lakelse Lake Road, two other residences on that same road, one residence on King Ave. in Thornhill and a residence on Bohler Rd. It marked a milestone in a 14-month investigation into a

Terrace-area organized crime unit, said police at that time. Emergency Response Team officers, similar to a SWAT team, were part of the officers at Edwardsen’s place due to a concern about weapons, said Terrace RCMP inspector Dana Hart. Police seized drugs, including more than 500 marijuana plants from three different grow-ops; 1.5 kg of cocaine; 24 tablets of ecstasy; 17 grams of hashish, 32 grams of magic mushrooms and also prescription drugs, said police. Investigators also recovered 110 long guns, including rifles and shotguns, and several handguns from two of the search sites, said police. Four others were arrested along with Edwardsen but later released; they remained uncharged as of Nov. 2. Prosecutors have laid 17 charges against Edwardsen: four counts of trafficking, three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, one charge of production of a controlled substance, four firearms charges, two charges for possessing a prohib-

ited or restricted firearm with ammunition, one charge of possessing prohibited weapon without a licence and six charges of unauthorized possession of a firearm. At least two of the seized firearms carried a minimum sentence of three years, prosecutor Adrienne Switzer told court in giving her reasons for Edwardsen being denied bail. Defence lawyer Greg Cranston argued the presence of firearms was due to serious bear problems on Edwardsen’s Old Lakelse Lake property. He showed photos to the judge and crown that he said showed large scratch marks on the outside of the residence’s door that looked like a bear had tried to scratch its way through the door. Bears had attacked Edwardsen’s dogs only a day before the police executed their search warrant at the property, he said. Switzer argued that the fear of a bear attack on Edwardsen’s dogs or of one breaking down his door may be reason for having a gun in the house but not for having several

loaded guns kept in a “haphazard” manner “scattered” throughout the room. Cranston argued that Crown didn’t have much of a case as it didn’t even have fingerprint evidence even though the baggies containing drugs and other items are excellent for finding fingerprints. As it’s a bail hearing, that doesn’t mean Crown doesn’t have fingerprint evidence, but often all the evidence isn’t shown to court during a bail hearing, said Switzer. The drugs seized were meant for redistribution and that’s the matter before the court, not whether the prosecution had enough evidence, she added. In his comments before making his decision on bail, Seidemann said protecting oneself from bears with a loaded weapon made sense, but not a loaded weapon that carries with it a minimumDON’T sentence of three years. Edwardsen’s next scheduled court date is Nov. 27 for arraignment. Two people had offered to post sureties had he been released.

Crown won’t lay charges from in-custody injury case

Man gets life for murder A KITIMAT man convicted of second degree murder for a stabbing three years ago will spend 12 years behind bars before having any chance for parole on his life sentence. A jury found Robert David Purchase, 33, guilty June 11 for the stabbing death of Arkadiusz Rejczak from November 2009 after a confrontation between the two on Rejczak’s driveway. “Today Mr. Purchase expressed remorse for the death of Mr. Rejczak. I have no reason to doubt he’s genuinely sorry for what happened,” said Mister Justice James Williams in pronouncing sentence Oct. 29. Second degree murder carries an automatic life sentence so the issue to decide at sentencing was how long he would have to wait until he could apply for parole – the minimum is 10 years. “I certainly hope, Mr. Purchase, you’re

33, your life is not over by a long shot. I certainly hope you can find a way to be the man you should be,” the justice continued. Testimony during the trial revealed that trouble started after Purchase spotted Rejczak in a bar with a former girlfriend. “Nothing happened at the bar but there were angry feelings taking root,” said Mr. Justice Williams referring to Purchase and Rejczak. The two exchanged a number of texts resulting in each threatening each other. Events culminated when Purchase, armed with a knife, confronted Rejczak in his driveway at approximately 6 a.m. Nov. 8. There were no witnesses to see what happened but apparently Purchase disarmed Rejczak who was carrying a baseball bat and then stabbed him approximately 17 times, the court heard. Police at the time said Purchase was seen

at the scene and began looking for him. They set up roadblocks and said they believed Purchase had left the Kitimat area.

Purchase was described as being “armed and unstable” and police warned people to stay away from him. He was later arrested in Terrace.

Library work planned IT’S going to be easier for people with mobility issues to use all portions of the Terrace Public Library. “An elevator will remove the existing accessibility barrier and provide a welcoming environment that is inclusive of all people,” said head librarian Margo Schiller of an upcoming project at the building. It means it will be easier for everyone to gain access to the art gallery located on the lower level. At present there’s only a curving staircase leading downstairs. An improved washroom on the upper level of the building will also be added. Money for the work comes from the city and a federal grant. “The accessibility project will enhance the quality of life for residents of the community by providing them with the opportunity to fully engage in library and art gallery programs and services,” said Schiller.

Help the Army THE SALVATION Army is looking for help for its 2012 Christmas hamper campaign. People to organize food drives, toy drives, hold a fundraiser or sponsor a deserving family are welcome, says army Major Rosa Moulton. The deadline for toys is Dec. 10. The Salvation Army operates an emergency food bank that is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. year round except the 10 weeks the Terrace Churches Food banks operates.

Music teacher recognized with a provincial award THE TEACHER who has spent the past 24 years teaching music of all types at Caledonia Secondary School has been presented with the BC Music Educator of the Year Award for teaching at the secondary level. Geoff Parr was honoured at an event sponsored by the B.C. Music Educators’ Association on the lower mainland. Parr, who has spent 29 years as a teacher, teaches concert band, jazz band and choir at Cal and for the past 19 years has been the co-producer of the school’s annual musical. David Johnstone, a former student of Parr’s and now a music teacher himself at a school in Fort Nelson, introduced Parr at the event. “As many of us in the room are all too aware, boards of education are quick to place music and other arts on the chopping block when financial cuts need to be made to balance their budgets – Terrace has been no exception,” said Johnstone. “Geoff has worked tirelessly as an advocate of music education in our school system, fighting to keep music specialists in the district and elementary band programs when they repeated tried to remove funding.” “His work, alongside those of his colleagues and the support of the community has resulted in their continuing to be a strong music presence in all Terrace schools,” Johnstone said.

In addition to his school-based activities, Parr has been active in the Terrace Community Band and the Terrace Big Band. He’s also had his students perform in the Pacific Northwest Music Festival every year and has organized annual band trips. Parr has been on the board of the Pacific Coast Festival Association, the Pacific Northwest Music Festival and the Terrace and District Arts Council. He also coordinated the Pacific Northwest Music Festival band workshop for eighteen years. “He inspired, and challenged me to become a better musician by opening doors for me that I never knew existed,” said Johnstone in his introduction. “I personally know many students besides myself who have pursued a career in music as a direct result of Geoff’s unwavering dedication to his students and his job.” Parr received his Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia in 1982 and a Masters of Education from the University of Victoria in 2008. “He has encouraged a lifelong love and appreciation of music and the arts in thousands of people in northern B.C. and I think of no one who is more deserving than him of this recognition,” said Johnstone of his mentor.

Seniors advocate passes away A LONGTIME resident who advocated for proper care for those in extended care and other facilities has passed away. Dawna Marie Ottenbreit died on Oct. 21 after a long battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a lung disease that makes it increasingly difficult to breathe. Ottenbreit advocated for patients and families of patients at Terraceview Lodge for more nurses and better care, according to friend Anna Bernard. “I was a dear friend of Dawna’s. We’re devastated,” said Bernard. “We just have to thank her ... she stuck her neck out so much. She fought for my mom and those workers. We are going to miss her.” Ottenbreit was a modest

Dawna Ottenbreit person and didn’t want to be thanked, said Bernard. “She was amazing,” she said. Ottenbreit was in a wheelchair and on oxygen and had sold her house across from Uplands School, said Ber-

nard. Ottenbreit was also the guardian of granddaughter Maggy Ottenbreit who has developed a reputation as an up and coming singer. She sang the national anthem at the Terrace is Hockeyville exhibition game between the Vancouver Canucks and the New York Islanders here in September 2009 and, the next year, sang the national anthem at a Canucks game in Vancouver. “She knew she wasn’t doing well,” said Bernard of Ottenbreit. Bernard said Ottenbreit had courage, strength and a strong sense of righteousness. Heather Reay knew Ottenbreit since both their husbands began living at the Terraceview care facility back in 2004.

They noticed some problems and joined the family council for families of those living at Terraceview. “[She was] a very kind and gentle person, aware of not wanting people to be the underdog, a very private person,” said Reay. She came up with the idea for a booklet for Terraceview residents’ family members with details of who the family council is and what it does. “I think that will be a legacy for her,” said Reay. The pair also talked to the city about snow clearing after getting plowed into their driveways by city snowplows, said Reay. That ended up as a topic for city council. Ottenbreit also wrote a letter to the editor about the situation. Snow clearing for seniors

has been available for the past two years now, she added. Reay went to see Ottenbreit before she died to thank her for being a good friend, only to hear it from Ottenbreit first. “I said ‘I came to say the same to you,” said Reay, adding Ottenbreit’s friendship kept her going over the years. Les Watmough was friends with Ottenbreit for a long time and said she was always involved in a lot of community activities. “She was involved in the community, in segments of the community, and when she was involved you better look out because she wouldn’t let you go,” he said, adding that was until she got what she wanted. No funeral service is planned as per Ottenbreit’s request.

Simon Higginson

November 10, 1951 - October 17, 2012 Simon Higginson was born on November 10, 1951 near Upholland in Lancashire, England. At three months of age, he made his first big trip when his parents, Wilf and Nora Higginson, immigrated to Canada by ship—perhaps starting his life long love of gallivanting. Growing up in Smithers, BC, some of Simon’s fondest memories involve wandering along bush paths and rural routes in the Bulkley Valley—and finding “good deals� (a.k.a. vehicles) that he fixed up, a passion that led to his first career: certified heavy duty mechanic. On August 21, 1971, Simon married his young love, Susanne Marguerite Forsyth, and in 1972, their first child, Evelene Simone, came into the world. She was joined by a little brother, Simon Wilfrid Jared in 1975, and a little sister, Margaret Eleonora in 1978. As his family grew and changed, so did Simon’s career. He obtained a Bachelor of Education from UBC in the late seventies (and, later, a Masters of Education Administration from UVIC), and the family settled in Terrace, BC where Simon started teaching industrial arts at Skeena Junior Secondary, beginning a career that spanned more than 30 years. In the early eighties Simon and Susanne moved to a small acreage, where Simon had a lot more room for his projects, and three more children arrived. Laura and Joanne Degerness joined them February 14, 1986, and Tristan Stewart Laurier was born in 1987. Sadly, Susanne passed away after a short battle with cancer in October 1995, and Simon was a single parent for seven years. Throughout his life, Simon was famous for being a busy guy with multiple things always on the go. In addition to his formal education, and while teaching and raising a family, he obtained various trade certifications, and ran several small businesses, before buying rental properties and finding his home so to speak—or, rather, his many homes. Then Simon met a woman who changed his world. In 2002, Simon wed his beloved wife, partner, and kindred spirit, Ramona Mae Bauman. Simon would want to be remembered most for his passion for his Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, but his deep affection for his family and friends needs mention, too. We were well-loved. Simon was predeceased by his first wife Susanne Marguerite Higginson, nee Forsyth, two sisters, Cathy and Margaret Higginson, his foster brother Stanley Morris, and his parents, Eleanarda Johanna (Nora) Higginson and Wilfred Higginson. He leaves behind his loving wife, Ramona Higginson, nee Bauman, and six children, their spouses, and seven grandchildren: Laura Salter, nee Degerness (husband Jim Salter, daughters Tanisha and Madison), Ev Bishop, nee Higginson (husband Chris Bishop, daughter Marriah and son Christopher), Joanne Degerness, Wilf Higginson (wife Christine Higginson, nee Todd, daughter Joy and son Jonathon), Ellie Higginson, and Tristan Higginson (wife Jillian Higginson, nee Mark, son Jeremy). See you later, Dad. We love you.

By Ken Anderson EIGHTY-TWO-year-old Arnold Dudley and his older brother Jack came to Puys on the northern coast of France and received vastly different receptions. They also came to Puys separated by seventy years. Arnold returned to Canada after his trip, his brother did not. Arnold was part of a Canadian battlefield tour which was in Dieppe on Aug. 19, 2012 for the 70th anniversary and commemoration of Operation Jubilee, the raid by predominantly Canadian soldiers on the German held, and heavily fortified, port on Aug. 19, 1942. Arnold’s brother, a sergeant in the Royal Canadian Artillery, took part in the raid and was mortally wounded on that disastrous day so long ago, a day in which 907 Canadian soldiers were killed and 1946 were captured. Arnold fulfilled a promise he had made to himself by coming to Puys. In the afternoon of this last Aug. 19, he went for a swim in the cold waters of the English Channel to honour his fallen brother, the same waters which bore his brother there but which never bore him home. Earlier that day Arnold was among the many spectators taking in the official ceremony below an old castle off the beach at Dieppe. Television crews covering the event noticed him standing behind a barrier holding high a photograph of his brother and came over and talked to him, learning the reason Arnold had come there that day. Arnold did not come alone. His daughter-in-law and granddaughter accompanied him, and the other Canadians on the tour witnessed and supported him in his quest. And there were hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Canadians there that day to pay tribute to and remember the fallen and to honour those who survived the battle and the war. Seven veterans of the failed raid were present for the ceremonies, ninety-yearold soldiers, some in wheelchairs, some ambulatory with help from others, but standing erect in their berets and blue blazers, hands raised in salute as the bugler played. Canadian flags were everywhere. Small plastic flags held by spectators in their hands or tucked into their hair. Flags flying on flagpoles. Huge maple leaf flags draped from balconies. Stylized maple leaf flags in the form of a dove, the symbol for the 70th anniversary commemorations. The emotions were almost overwhelming at times. The French remember and are grateful for what Canada and her soldiers sacrificed for their country at Dieppe, throughout Normandy, in countless battles and at such cost to give them back their freedom and their country. A contingent of Canadian soldiers marched to and from the Canadian Memorial Park to the stirring sound of drums and bagpipes. A squad of French soldiers, submachine guns held across their chests, marched in quick step to join their Cana-

dian counterparts. A solitary Canadian piper played a lament as he stood below the looming backdrop of cliff and castle. A lone Spitfire made two arching passes over the same castle, and two Belgian F-16s swept by. But the most moving moment for me came as I stood near a cairn to the officers and men of the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry. The Riley’s, as they are nicknamed, came ashore at Dieppe that day in 1942, and 197 of them were killed on the beach or as they tried to fight their way into the town. As I stood talking to the officers of the regiment near that cairn, a young French woman came up to them and said that although she was too young to have had personal recollections of that day in 1942, she valued and was thankful for what their regiment and Canada had done for her country. She then shook hands with each of the officers and, for whatever thoughts were going through her mind, shook mine also. I have to say, there were tears in my eyes and I could hardly speak. And no sooner was this woman fin-

ished thanking the officers when two young Frenchmen came forward with young children in hand and also gave them thanks. Sincere thanks, so simple and straightforward, graciously received and acknowledged by the officers on behalf of their regiment and their country. Later that day as I walked through a tent camp set up on the Esplanade off the beach, looking at all of the military vehicles, equipment and weapons on display, I turned from what I had been viewing to go on to the next display. Suddenly, from the corner of my eye, I caught a glimpse of someone so seemingly out of place amongst all the hardware of war that it stopped me in my tracks — a little girl sitting on a crate, bag of potato chips in one hand, her other hand raised to her head, an innocent, questioning look on her face. She, to me, captured more than all of the equipment, the memorials, and the ceremonies themselves the essence of what all the suffering and sacrifice that Canadians and their allies was for — the right to live one’s life in freedom, to enjoy its simple pleasures, and to decide one’s own destiny.

CCS Sr. Boys Volleyball shuts out the competition at Terrace tourney A JOINT senior boys volleyball tournament hosted by Centennial Christian School and Caledonia Secondary School ended with big wins for both Terrace schools, with CCS winning each of their three matches and Cal’s two teams winning four out of six. The weekend event, held over the weekend of Oct. 27, saw teams from all over the northwest pack the Cal gymnasium. Each team played three match-ups with best out of two sets (or three, if there was a tie). CCS was pleased with the results, especially because one of their top players, Jason Bandstra, rolled his ankle early in the day and will be out for a while. “We had various players step up and play to their potential, especial-

ly in our final game versus single A zone rival Bulkley Valley Christian School,” said Pastor Joel Ringma, who coaches the team with Peter Ramsay and Jesiah Bartley. CSS ended up with a decisive win against these rivals, with scores of 25-19 and 25-14 in the two sets. “The overall play of our team was very good,” said Ringma. The team is currently ranked fourth in their provincial single A division. Cal, who divided into two teams to allow for an even number of teams, fared well for the day, also. Winning against BVCS in a close three-game battle, and losing only to CSS and HCS. For the full results of the tournament, please visit terracestandard. com.

THE Skeena Jr. B Girls volleyball team headed to Prince George over the Oct. 26/27 weekend to partake in the DP Todd Invitational Jr. B Girls Volleyball Tournament. A total of 10 teams attended, in one pool - Duchess Park, College Heights, Kelly Road, Fort St. James, and Dr. Kearney and in the other, Dp Todd, PGSS, Cedars, McBride, and Skeena. On Friday, Skeena’s first match against McBride helped give Skeena some early confidence with consistent serving and strong net coverage. Skeena finished the match with a win — 25-15 in the first set, 2225 in the second set and 15-6 in the

third set. Skeena’s second match against PGSS saw Skeena start with an early lead and never look back with a strong offensive attack and smart plays. The team finished with a decisive win — 25-5 in the first set and 25-22 in the second set. On Saturday, Skeena’s third match versus Cedars proved to be a seesaw battle that saw Cedars gain an early lead and test Skeena’s confidence. However, keeping focussed on their game plan and strengths led them to victory with a first set of 25-20 and 26-24 in the second set. Key blocking and smart hitting were the factors which lead to their

(250) 638-7283

Skeena girls net another win on the road success in this match. Skeena’s fourth game versus DP Todd had Skeena struggling to maintain a lead, which led to a bit of panic. But they were able to calm down and turn things around with another victory winning the first set 25-23 and 25-5 in the second. This win proved to be very emotional for the girls as they had to overcome a strong lead from their opponents. These results placed Skeena first in their pool and in good position for the playoffs to follow. Their fifth semi-final game was against DP Todd again who were looking for a chance to come back

after their last encounter with Skeena. Again the game stayed close with both team taking the lead but Skeena proved to be stronger in the end winning 25-20 and 25-13. Their confidence and focus helped move them into the finals at last. The finals set up Skeena against Dr. Kearney, also undefeated at this point in the tournament. This match started with both teams swapping points and nerves. Emotions also played a big factor. Skeena struggled with their serving for the first time in the tournament but kept finding a way to keep the score close and won the

first set 25-22. In the second set, Skeena dominated early, cruising to gold with a score of 25-13. This was the second time the team took first place in PG, after winning the PG Kodiac Classic in September. During the awards ceremony all Skeena players were awarded with Champion T-Shirts and medals. While the entire team played extremely well together, outstanding performances in the tournament include Ashlee Wojnarowski who was the most consistent player all weekend,

“There’s a reason they call it the fastest game on ice” TEAMS FROM Quesnel, Prince George, and Houston made the trek to Terrace the weekend of Oct. 27 to participate in a fastpaced and fun-filled ringette play weekend at the local rink. Co-ed teams in divisions, U9, U12, and U14 battled it out for the top spot over the course of the weekend, with raffle prizes and a lunch banquet for the players and their supporters. It wasn’t a typical tournament, but a chance for the teams to get in league play. “With the older groups the speed and agility were amazing,” said organizer Erika Nicholson. “There is a reason why ringette is called the fastest game on ice.” Even an earthquake during the

U14 Terrace and Quesnel game on Saturday night didn’t put a damper on festivities, she said. On the ice, the players didn’t feel the earthquake—but were drawn to the excitement in the stands. The U9 Terrace/Prince George combined team won all three of their matches, with strong showings by Emily McLeod and Nicholas Edwards, who scored goals in every game. In the U12 matches, Terrace lost to Houston and Prince George, but took Quesnel in a high-scoring game 14-9. In that game, hatricks were scored by Julia Yoo and Lisa Nicholson, with many other players getting on the board. As for the U14 division, Terrace

fell to Quesnel 8-2, but trounced Prince George 10-5, thanks in part to hatricks by Oliva Resch and Cassidy Pavao. They fought a close match against Houston, winning 8-6. Quinn Beblow saw a hatrick and goaltending by Jessica Dahl was on point. On the defensive end, Emma Kenmuir, Erin Struyk, Emily Barron and Michelle Roseboom played strong and smart. Here are some results: U9 Division: PG/Terrace 10 - Houston 2; PG/ Terrace 6 - Houston 3; PG/Terrace 7 - Houston 3. U12 Division: Terrace 3 - Houston 10; Terrace 6 - PG 9; Terrace 14 - Quesnel 9. U14 Division: Terrace 2 - Quesnel 8; Terrace 10 - PG 5; Terrace 8 - Houston 6.


IN THE U12 Terrace vs. Quesnel game, Terrace’s #25 Jacob Bond and #28 Lisa Nicholson keep the ring away from their opponents.

ike Whelpley and I were standing atop the high bank overlooking the cluster of runs on the Kispiox River steelheaders know as “the Patch,” so named for the derelict potato patch—now nothing more than an expanse of grass— that borders the left side of the river, when a fisherman carrying the longest rod I had ever seen came walking up the far bank. At that time, at least 30 years ago, now it was rare to see a fly rod on the Skeena and her tributaries other than on the Kispiox and the Morice – and even there for only a couple of months in the fall. When you did see a fly rod it would be nine feet long and built to toss an 8 or 9 weight fly line. The pole the fisher on the far side of the Lower Patch was packing appeared to be twice that long, and it wobbled as he walked. On the afternoon of the next day, I had a chance to watch the same fellow fish. He was casting overhand, and he cast a fair distance, but no farther than I could comfortably cast with my 9-foot Fenwick fibre glass rod. Someone in the valley, I forget who now, told me that the angler’s name was Eric Maisonpierre. It was a memorable name. House Peter, in translation. It stuck in my mind. A short time later, I came across an article in the American fishing magazine Salmon, Trout, Steelheader, by an Eric

Here’s a shot from last year’s match. Every year the Terrace RCMP takes on area firefighters for a good cause, helping children take part in sports.

Cops vs. Firemen: on ice The 4th annual Guns N’ Hoses charity hockey game is happening this weekend, and local folk in uniform are looking forward to lacing up for a good cause. The match, held on Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Sportsplex, sees Terrace and area firefighters face off against the local RCMP. But the match isn’t just a battle of the uniforms, it’s a chance to raise money for local kids sports and recreation through the Jumpstart program. “All the funds stay local,” said firefighter Jeff Minhinnick, noting that they’ve raised roughly $20,000 over the years. “It’s all gone towards Terrace and local youth,” he said. Jumpstart is a charitable program created by Canadian Tire that helps financially disadvantaged kids participate in organized sport and recreation. The program helps cover registration, equipment and transportation costs, if needed – and, like Minhinnick said, one hundred per cent of the funds stay local and go right to the kids. The program is rooted in the belief that participating in sport increases a child’s chance for suc-

cess in life, according to a release detailing the event from the Terrace RCMP. As for the day of the event and level of competition, Minhinnick says there’s a wide range of players and abilities. The firefighters actually draw on players from Thornhill, Kitimat, and Prince Rupert because they wouldn’t have enough players otherwise. And those hoping to catch RCMP Const. Angela Rabut in action are unfortunately out of luck, as she won’t be lacing up this year. But the Timbits will take the ice to endear the crowd, and the audience will have many chances to win big. There will be a puck drop, organized by the Terrace RCMP auxiliary constables, where the closest puck to the centre wins a day-long fishing charter out of Prince Rupert, and the next dozen pucks closest to the centre will also take home prizes. And, of course, no charity hockey game would be complete without a 50/50 draw and a shoot-forloot. Doors are at 6 p.m., with the puck dropping at 7 p.m.

Mikayla Jeffery, who was able to rise to the challenge and raise her game, and Carly Davies who dominated with her blocking talent. Coach Frank Marrelli said this was the first year he has ever travelled with a team to PG twice in one year. He had a hunch they were a special bunch that could be successful and ready for a challenge. The team did not lose a game the entire tournament and had to battle back in a number of situations to secure their victory. Marrelli would also like to thank all the parents that helped the team in their success last weekend while making the trip to Prince George. This was only the second tournament this season and will hopefully act as a springboard for future tournaments, he said. Next up, the team is off to Houston for zones to try to capture the NW Jr. Girls B banner for 2012.

and Art Lingren, who along with the late Mike Maxwell, was leading a revival of the two-handed rod in B.C., (which consisted of the two of them at that point) was kind enough to send me a video of the famous English salmon fisherman, Hugh Faulkus, demonstrating the art of Spey casting, so named because it was the technique almost exclusively on Scotland’s River Spey. I watched, fascinated, as Faulkus powered out long elegant casts with his 15-foot carbon fibre rod. At that time I couldn’t see the relation between overhead casting with a single-handed rod and what Faulkus was doing. His technique was all about loops. There was virtually no back cast—meaning a practitioner no longer needed to worry about brush and rock faces behind him. This feature of two-handed fly casting is stunning. Not having to worry about having enough back casting room completely changed how an angler viewed the river. Where the fly fisher armed with a single handed rod had only a few casting sites from whence to deliver hurl his fly, the man with a two-fisted rod could operate from everywhere but those spots where the overhanging trees prevented him from bringing his rod perpendicular to the water. Watching Faulkus, as Art had done before he sent the tape to me, was a revelation and the beginning of a revolution that was about to change steelheading profoundly. be continued....

■■ Burned down

A shed along the Howe Creek Tree Park trail that contained landscaping equipment used by Greater Terrace Beautification Society volunteers who maintain the trail was burned to the ground last week. The fire started around 1 a.m. Oct. 17 and was reported by a Walsh Ave. resident. The shed dates back years and belonged to a tree nursery business which once operated at the location.

Charges dropped, reason withheld North District General Investigation Section and the North District Emergency Response Team, reported police at that time. Two women were arrested in one residence and another woman in the other residence, said police. Ellen Lizette New was charged for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and released by a justice of the peace on conditions, said police. Charges for possession for the purpose of trafficking were being forwarded to the prosecutors against the other two women arrested. One of the three women was never charged. The other, Jacquelyn Stelmacker, had her charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking stayed by the court in September of this year. The Public Prosecution Service of Canada, (PPSC) who represents

federal prosecutors and can speak for them, would not comment

on why the charges against the women were dropped.

A TWO-YEAR old drug case was dropped abruptly last week. Ellen New, who had been charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and one charge of possession, had her charges stayed by a federal prosecutor. The prosecutor doesn’t have to give a reason as to why he would not follow through to trial. Defence lawyer Suzette Narbonne did not know why the charges were dropped. “I don’t have a clue why. They send me a letter telling me it’s been stayed. They’re not obligated to tell me why,” she said about why prosecutor Harold Alkema stayed the charges. On July 17, 2010, officers seized cash and what they described as cocaine when two search warrants were executed at the same time on Pine Ave. by Terrace RCMP, the

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.

It’s more than a pipeline.

It’s a path to delivering energy safely.
