CNC awards Mt. Milligan

The College of New Caledonia has awarded a Mt. Milligan supervisor with their Industry Partner Award. John Sandstrom, Superintendent of Leadership Development and Organizational Culture was given the award. The award recognized the work Sandstrom has done with the college to provide mining-related courses in Mackenzie and Fort St. James.

Shelter rezoning passes first step ...again Mayor and council voted unanimously to give Fireweed Collective Society another kick at the can last week. A bylaw to allow the rezoning of the home the non profit group purchased on Second Avenue passed the first stage, for the second time. This means the group will once again present to council in a public meeting and give opponents and supporters the opportunity to speak on the the issue. Council will then decide whether or not to allow the home to become a shelter for women and children fleeing violence. The public hearing will take place 7 p.m. Dec. 12 at the municipal office.

Pipeline slated for 2015 Cameron Ginn and Ruth Lloyd Black Press A natural gas pipeline proposal is being toured through potentially impacted communities in the area. The proposal to build a 700-kilometre natural gas pipeline that would pass through the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako is being put forward for comment by the Canadian energy company TransCanada. The $4-billion Coastal GasLink Pipeline project will transport natural gas from Dawson Creek to Kitimat for liquefaction at a terminal that LNG Canada - a corporation composed of Shell Canada Ltd., Korea Gas Corporation, Mitsubishi Corporation and PetroChina Company Ltd. - is proposing to build. TransCanada plans to start conducting field studies next year and file the required regulatory documents with the federal and provincial government by 2014. If the project is approved by the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office, the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, TransCanada could begin pipeline construction as soon as 2015, said Bruce Wells, director of project planning and execution. Even during these early planning stages, the company is underscoring its commitment to transparency and, where possible, incorporating public

input into the project. Since June, TransCanada says it has employed a special team to engage the leaders of some 30 First Nations communities through which the pipeline could be routed. To date, the company has mailed 600 letters and met with more than 400 landowners within a fourkilometere zone of the proposed pipeline, called the centerline, located about 10 to 15 kilometers north of Vanderhoof. “Once you establish a centerline, there will be a considerably less affected amount of landowners,” said Wells. Mayor Gerry Thiessen and his administrative staff met with TransCanada officials in June to discuss the project. Since then, Thiessen has voiced his concerns about how the Coastal GasLink project could potentially impact policing and health care services in Vanderhoof. “They need to be involved in the responsibility of that,” said Thiessen. TransCanada’s presentation to Vanderhoof council came just days after the Oct. 17 release of a report by Northern Health on how resource-development workers residing in industrial camps could affect health care services in rural and remote communities across northern B.C. During the presentation, Wells said TransCanada will locate camps near the centerline to minimize the impact of traffic on nearby communities. Using polling, the company is attempting to

understand more about Vanderhoof and the issues surrounding recreational services, growth pressures and, to some degree, pipeline projects. “We try to get to know each community and find out what the impacts are going to be from our perspective,” said Wells. With a purpose of creating new markets for natural gas in B.C., the Coastal GasLink project will generate an estimated $17 million of annual tax revenue between the affected districts, according to Wells. But TransCanada has also been receiving some criticism recently for their safety practices. An engineer who used to work for the company, after coming forward to CBC, triggered the National Energy Board to initiate an audit of the company sooner than originally planned. The audit will be looking at the company’s integrity management across their pipeline network, which includes the Keystone pipeline, which goes from northern Alberta to refineries in the United States. The company also had an explosion on a sixmonth-old pipeline in Wyoming in July of 2011. The cause of the explosion has not yet been determined by regulators. The company, however, told CBC the damage to the pipeline most likely occurred during backfilling after construction, but the damage was not detected by company inspectors. No one was injured in the explosion, which took place in a remote area, however the blast was felt more than a kilometre away.

As Mount Milligan moves closer to production, planning is underway for operational readiness. All departments are working to identify the steps necessary to ensure the mine and mill is ready for commissioning in 2013. Close to 200 members of the operations team have now been hired, and training programs are underway to support people new to mining. A new course, offered at the College of New Caledonia’s Fort St James campus, is providing the foundation for future mill operators. The 16week program will wrap up at the end of this year and the course will be offered again in January. Another option for those interested in starting a career in mining, is the six-week mine certificate program, also offered by the College of New Caledonia In addition to completing the hiring of the 400 people required to operate Mount Milligan, new personnel

are undergoing training including cultural awareness (a seminar conducted by members of the McLeod Lake Indian Band and Nak’azdli First Nation), safety, and emergency preparedness. Recent activities at site included a training exercise for members of the Mount Milligan Mine Rescue Team (MRT). The twoday session, conducted by Dynamic Rescue, provided training on the standards and regulations involved with bank/slope rescue and systems. All mine rescue members had an opportunity to fill each of the different roles, including simulating an injured worker requiring steep slope rescue. “Having a chance to practice skills in the field is an important step in emergency preparedness,” says Mitchell Chartrand, Safety Coordinator, Mount Milligan. “While we hope to never have to use our skills in a real emergency, we want to be confident and

ready if the need ever arises, and this sort of training builds our response skills and strengthens our team work.” A top priority for the Mount Milligan team is maintaining the exemplary safety record achieved during construction. Earlier this year, the project surpassed two million hours without any injuries. Thompson Creek Metals extends a big thank you to each and every person working on the Mount Milligan team. Nothing is more important than sending everyone home safely at the end of each day and a safety-first culture will be a key attribute of the operations philosophy. Mount Milligan will be a conventional, truck-shovel open-pit mine designed to produce an average of 81 million pounds of copper and 194,500 ounces of gold annually over a projected 22-year life.

What about social justice?

Operation Chistmas Child

Debbie Rockefeller M.A., R.R.P. Tl’azt’en Health Center

What about social justice? I suspect that if I were to ask each of you to define what social justice means to you, I would get a wide variety of answers. For most of us a definition will encompass many factors, including personal history, political beliefs, and religion or lack thereof. There will even be a few of you who believe that social justice is not achievable in society. So, it is agreed that a mutually acceptable definition of social justice will be hard to reach and even harder to put into practice. For the purpose of this article social justice will be defined as equality in all aspects of society. It is the striving for equal rights and opportunities for all people. Traditionally, the inequalities within society have been examined and explained from the viewpoint of the victimized. During my undergrad years studies of classism, discrimination, racism, nationalism, and other forms of discrimination focused mainly on the act of oppression, specifically those who suffered from oppression. Discrimination means treating people differently and less favorably, knowingly or otherwise, because of characteristics that are not earned or required for gainful employment. These include, but are not limited to, race, color, sex, religion, political opinion, and social origin. Other kinds of discrimination occur as a result of one’s assigned gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation. Lately, I have been reviewing research directed toward the experience of whiteness and privilege in an attempt to further understand the dynamics of systemic inequality. Through my previous articles it is my hope that you have gained an understanding of the multiple levels of oppression that exists in society and how each is linked to a system of privilege or domination. As a review, social location is defined as one’s status in society based on their membership in a social group. Inclusive in this are the numerous social locations we all hold (race, class, age, gender, ability, social orientation, and so on). For each of us, based on our social location, we experience both oppression and privilege. It follows that for every incidence of oppression there is an act of domination that usually confers an increase of status or privilege to the individual or group engaging in the act of domination. If this is clear, then you can move on to understand how our different social locations can and do interact with each other -- meaning how race, gender, class, and so on work together to privilege or oppress each of us on multiple levels (individual, social, and institutional). So, in order to fully understand how our societal systems of privilege and oppression work we have to consider all aspects our social positions because they all affect how we see ourselves and our interactions with others. In conclusion, exploring oppression and privilege in society can be difficult, but eye-opening. It can help us to understand others experiences with oppression and privilege and aid us in gaining insights as to how we treat others in society who may be different in some way. My final hope is that we can begin to view individual differences with compassion and appreciation.

Editor: Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations world wide through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. You can get involved by packing a shoe box gift. It may seem like an unexciting object to us. But, to millions of children around the world, that basic container has, since 1993, become a welcome surprise at Christmas and also a symbol and demonstration of caring and basic humanity. Operation Christmas Child has ensured that each year millions of underprivileged children receive a shoe-box gift. These boxes will go to children who normally wouldn’t receive a gift at Christmas. This year boxes filled from Canada will go to children in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Guatemala, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Anyone can fill them, adults and children. It’s a great family project, it teaches your children that Christmas is not only about receiving gifts, but also about giving. Selecting items and filling a box is an activity that parents can do with their children. Plastic, reusable containers are recommended for packing your shoe-box gift. The boxes should be filled with a variety of items. Please remember to give $7 or more per box to cover project costs, including shipping. It is requested that you do not seal your boxes so that the workers in Calgary can check the contents to make sure everything in it meets customs requirements. They also need to get in the box to retrieve the money you have provided to help offset shipping costs. When the shoeboxes have been checked in Calgary they get packaged into large containers to be shipped to various countries around the world to needy children. Further information about Operation Christmas Child, a list of suggested items for inclusion in the shoeboxes, how to pack, label and seal the boxes is available at the Integris Credit Union. New: You can pack a shoebox online-go to www.samaritanspurse. ca/shoebox. When you have packed your shoebox please be sure to drop it off at the Integris Credit Union on or before November 23, 2012. For any questions please contact Cathy DeMerchant – 996-7846 or Norma Hoy – 996-8349, Or visit the website: www.samaritanspurse.ca Norma Hoy

Successful businesses have extensive knowledge of their customers and their competitors. Market research is the process of gathering information which will make you more aware of how the people you hope to sell to will react to your current or potential products or services. Whether you are aware of it or not, as a business owner you conduct market research all the time. When you talk to customers about your business or check out the prices of your competitors you are conducting market research. Formalizing the process can produce a wealth of information about your products and services, your customers and the marketplace you operate in. The level of complexity used in your market research campaign is up to you, as market research can cover a broad spectrum of activities. You can undertake simple activities that can be done on your own, such as creating a short customer satisfaction questionnaire or studying demographic data for your area, or undertake complex ones that require assistance from a professional market research firm. Regardless of the size of your market research budget, the time you have available or your level of experience, some form of market research is possible and it can help you to improve your business decisions. Why conduct market research?

niestowards drinking water projects in developing countries.

Spill response plan Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been talking about the precautions, the safety measures, and the selection criteria involved in the marine elements of the Gateway project — all of them intended to prevent an oil spill on water. I’ve also mentioned, in recent weeks, how Gateway’s marine safety program was examined by an independent risk-assessment group, which determined that the chances of a major spill are once in more than 15,000 years. Although statistics and reports suggest a marine oil spill is unlikely, you want to know — what if one does occur? How will Gateway be prepared? While the chances are slim, we continue to develop a world-class marine response program. The Northern Gateway Project includes a spill response capacity that’s more than three times the Canadian regulation. And while the Canadian requirement for oil spill response is 72 hours plus travel time, our response time will be a fraction of that number — 6 to 12 hours in the marine channels. This is a significant increase to the response capability available to B.C.’s north coast. Additionally, for immediate response, our tug escorts will be

equipped with booms, oil skimmers, and firefighting equipment to provide enhanced initial containment, and they will be available to all marine traffic in the event of an incident.

SANTA CLAUS AD

THIS IS A FULL PAGE AD

We will store equipment, such as containment and absorbent booms, skimmers, and waste storage, in multiple well-maintained, readily accessible response bases, providing a wider area of coverage in a shorter amount of time. Barges will also be located throughout the marine channels for additional storage and equipment mobilization. We are committed to having staff, contractors, and partners in place to maintain that enhanced state of readiness.

Fort St. James high school students were inspired to think a bit more about the “we” and less about the “me” recently. A group of Fort St. James and Vanderhoof students were loaded onto a bus to attend a We Day event in Vancouver on October 18. The event saw 20,000 youth crowd into the Rogers Arena to hear inspirational speakers and performers, including Magic Johnson, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Demi Lovato, and Cody Simpson. Rhiannon Gammon, a local Grade 10 student at Fort St. James Senior Secondary, said one of the speakers who stood out for her was Molly Burke, a young motivational speaker who lost her sight as a teenager. Burke spoke about bullying, and it was not until the end of her speech when it became clear to the audience she was blind. Her speech was powerful for Gammon because “she’s been through so much it really made me respect what she said,” said Gammon. “It gave me chills,” said Kaylee Walstrom, another Fort St. James student who attended the event. Both were most impressed with Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s speech, who they had been looking forward to seeing. “He’s really lighthearted, but his message was clear,” said Walstrom. They said he made every one at the event feel welcome and included, and made listeners want to just sit down and hear his stories. Gammon, who has been participating in Me to We campaigns since she was in Grade 8 hopes to continue with different projects. “Personally, I’d like to do something about social change locally,” she said. The Free the Children group at the high school which meets each week has done Halloween for Hunger campaigns for a number of years, collecting food bank donations on Halloween instead of candy. This year the group delivered over 200 food items to the Learning Hub for their food bank. Walstrom and fellow participant Gabriella Willick also both said they

And the people o of British Columbia have told us that we must exceed safety standards if it is to cross this beautiful province. We’ve heard their concerns and have continually incorporated their feedback into our plans.
