Skeena transit gets reviewed Cameron Orr A service review of the Skeena public transit system has brought out a number of recommendations, among them increased routes on the Connector bus to Terrace, with the possibility of servicing the airport more frequently. The draft transit review is currently available for viewing on the District of Kitimat’s website (www.kitimat.ca) and shows a number of possible changes to the transit system, both short term and long term. Any action on the report would have to come from the Regional District of Kitimat Stikine, which manages the Skeena transit system which services runs beetween Terrace and Kitimat, as well as nearby communities along Highway 16. The Terrace-Kitimat Connector, the report notes, is often packed full, meaning many passengers need to stand. “Providing more frequent service would ensure these routes, which are long and involve travelling on roads with many curves, are safe and comfortable for passengers,” the report states. The report estimates that adding three roundtrips to the Connector route in a day would cost an additional $225,000 a year, with the local government sharing $82,000 of that. An extra bus would also be required. Upping the round-trips by three would allow for two more trips to the airport during the day. As it is now, a bus is scheduled to leave the airport only once, at 4:18 p.m. More frequent stops at the airport was just one idea. Another would be to stop airport service entirely and have all trips serve the Jack Pine community. The report said that plan would be cost neutral. While plans for more Connector runs is a long-term goal, a more short-term suggestion was to add about 10 minutes to each one-way trip on the Connector from Kitimat to Terrace. That suggestion, the report says, will help keep the trip on time throughout the year and will also prevent delays on other bus routes that rely on connections with the Connector. With suggestions in the report to restructure routes within Terrace, it was recommended that changes to the Connector schedule coincide with changes in Terrace. More weekend service is another area that Skeena transit could change, but the recommendation didn’t specify the Connector. BC Transit’s senior regional manager for the North Central zone, Todd Dupuis, said that the Connector was mainly designed to serve people’s medical transportation needs. Continued on page 2

Joseph Pauloski holds the sick eagle he found at the Kitimat Landfill while working. Staff at the dump called the local animal shelter and the eagle was taken to Prince Rupert where it’s making great progress. Photo submitted

Kitimatian’s kind heart gives a sick eagle a new lease on life Cameron Orr Joseph Pauloski was sitting in his excavator at the Kitimat landfill when he caught sight of something falling into the quarry. When he went in for a closer look he found an eagle on the ground, its wings extended. He thought that could mean only a couple of things; it was protecting some food from other birds, or something was wrong. He gave the eagle five minutes before moving in. “He flew away once but he couldn’t really get off the ground,” said Pauloski. “I went up to him with my jacket, took my jacket off and threw it around him... he didn’t even struggle.” He walked the eagle back to the shed and they called the Kitimat Humane Society.

The local shelter manager made the drive to Prince Rupert to get the bird help at the Prince Rupert Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. Since finding the eagle last Wednesday, Nov. 14, and since the eagle was delivered to Prince Rupert the day after, it has been making great progress back to health. “He must have ate something bad,” said Gunther Golinia, who runs Prince Rupert’s wildlife shelter with wife Nancy. “We treated him with charcoal and electrolytes. He’s really perking up.” He added that nothing appeared to be broken on the eagle. He said they receive eagles as far away as Burns Lake and they release them from Prince Rupert once they’re back to health. Eagles are great navigators and know how to travel. He said they get birds coming in

from the Prince Rupert landfill at times too, where they had eaten something bad, such as cleaning chemicals mixed with the trash. “It’s awful hard on the birds,” he said. Their shelter has seen about 40 eagles throughout the year, with eight still in their shelter. As for Pauloski, he said he wasn’t nervous at all approaching the eagle. The fact the eagle didn’t look nervous about him being there helped. But Pauloski also has experience with bird rescue. When he was about 12-or-13-years-old on Masset he said he was walking to school and found a trumpeter swan flailing in the snow. He did then what he did last week; wrapped it up in his jacket and took it to their animal shelter. “That made front page news,” he said.

Training keeps rescuers sharp what a real search could entail. The fictitious search closely resembled a recent search the KSAR successfully performed earlier in the week. A command post was set up at the park shelter and under the direction of a Search Manager and three Team Leaders; the teams of searchers systematically searched the network of trails, until the unresponsive subject was located. Once assessed, the patient was pack-

aged in a stretcher, and carried to a suitable spot in the park, where a handoff to the BC Ambulance Service could have taken place. KSAR has had a busy year in the community responding to various call outs ranging from missing mushroom pickers, missing persons in remote areas, to injured hikers in the backcountry. KSAR also responds to various mutual aid calls from surrounding areas in need of support.

KSAR would like to remind persons traveling in the backcountry at this time of year (sledders, snowshoers, backcountry skiers, fishermen, quaders) to be prepared for the unexpected. Leaving a pre-plan with someone responsible is a must, along with your anticipate return time. KSAR thanks the small business and corporate support it has received this year, and also from the community in general.

Cameron Orr A report has come back to Kitimat Council which spells out why a playground in Cablecar is not likely to happen. At council’s Sept. 4 meeting, Phil Germuth moved for administration to prepare a report which would outline the cost and location of a possible kids play area in the rural neighbourhood. Leisure Services Director Martin Gould suggested at the time that such a project could be challenging in that area but would put together the official report. With that report now in council’s hands, they voted simply to receive it for information, based on its contents which showed little hope to see one built. That low-likelihood is based on the fact there is little available land owned by the District of Kitimat in Cablecar. Aside from the housing developments, most of the surrounding lands are Crown land, and permission would have to be received from the province to develop them. As well, the report states that “no matter where a playground is situated, it will be difficult for residents of the neighbourhood to access it,” as it could be up to 2km away from certain homes. Access corridors may also have to be installed through wooded areas to create direct routes to any potential playground. This is not the first time that a playground was proposed in Cablecar. In 1993, the District of Kitimat received a letter from Perry Smith who wanted to see a playground build in the neighbourhood. The proposed locations were the northeast corner of Cablecar, or the Snowflake Fair Grounds. At the time, council supported the motion in

Welcome changes The province has followed through on promises to review how they handle emergency notifications, following the Oct. 27 7.7 earthquake on Haida Gwaii. Which is great news for those of us who noticed how slow information came from Emergency Management BC (EMBC), the people who we had relied on to give us information on, you know, emergency management. There were certainly holes in the system that should have been noted far earlier. My predecessor has on a few occasions told me about tsunami warning drills the province had done in the past where bulletins would be sent out to media. The punchline from those moments is that our sister paper the Terrace Standard indeed did receive a tsunami alert. The Kitimat Northern Sentinel, however, did not. If you know your geography, you know why that’s funny. Or tragic. Now alerts from the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Centre will be auto-forwarded to local authorities and even media will be in on the loop too. (They say “major provincial media” in their press release but we have since been told by their communications people that this paper is, indeed, on the list of organizations to get alerts.) Some of the other plans include things that I feel should have been in place already (Like a mobile-ready version of EMBC’s blog, and ways to subscribe to it on your phone. Plus template blog posts to speed up the posting of information.) and others which are actually neat and a creative solution. (Interactive maps of tsunami warning zones, and digital recordings posted to the web through a service called Sound Cloud.) The real takeaway for myself in all this is how behind a lot of the communication methods are for the province and emergency responders. Even locally the Kitimat Emergency Program and the fire department will be looking at ways to take advantage of social media, a medium which fire chief Trent Bossence said circulated a lot of misinformation during the earthquake in question. In our news room here, we didn’t receive any e-mails from the province, and the main way we heard from the fire hall was through fax, a communication method which has astounded me with how long it has lasted.

No success with seceding plans How did you see the U.S. election? Did you view it as a too-long, drawn-out, incredibly expensive debacle that solved little for the American people? As of this writing, it has been a week since Barack Obama was re-elected with a smaller numby Allan Hewitson ber of electoral votes than he attained in his initial campaign Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missis– something that has never hapsippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, pened before.

The wealthiest country in history is bankrupt, with 50 million citizens in poverty and the entire middle class on an economic knifeedge.” There’s so much more, but if you don’t read the Financial Post, you should go online just to check out the two-part disassembling of the election by Black. It’s great entertainment – much of it is on target – but it is an opinion piece and clearly, not all will agree. And don’t think he’s just shilling for Mitt Romney. Black kept some of his bluntest criticism for the Republicans. “Any substantial president would have mopped the floor with Romney, and any serious challenger would have evicted the incumbent like a derelict squatter,” to quote Mr. Black. Getting back to the States wanting to secede from the Union, none of that is likely to happen. It’s not that new; it was South Carolina’s attempt at secession in 1860 that launched the civil war, after all. Continued on page 5

Jobs plan comes up short Seceding

As readers wilI well know, in my previous life as editor of this newspaper I was not terribly kind about premier Christy Clark’s vaunted BC Jobs Plan. Quite the opposite in fact. So I read with interest - and hope - a November 6 provincial government announcement of a new, near half million dollar training program to help people “learn practical skills for employment in the growing building services sector”. Finally, I thought, action. Vital action too given the Quick Facts part of that press release noted BC is projected to have nearly a million job openings over the next decade. Unfortunately the more I read, the more the bloom came off the rose. How many people would get this training? One hundred and forty-four. Yup, 144. Which equals less than one per cent of the 100,000 jobs the government says will need to be filled each and every year between now and 2022. Ah well, it’s a start. So what exactly are the skills that those enrolled in the program will acquire?

Changes

Contined from page 4 I’m truly not intending to pick on the fire department, who I think do and have done great work. It’s merely a surprise to see where communication falls through the crack when it’s most needed. Having the earthquake was scary, but I am comforted to know the powers-that-be in our province are taking the lessons to heart. Let just hope we’ll never see how we improved. Cameron Orr

Continued from page 4 So far, with a reported 22,000 petition signatories Texas, not surprisingly, leads the secession parade. Texas, as most of us know, considers itself as a “republic” anyway. Its politicians enjoy mumbling with secession and even more than Quebec, feel warm about the Lone Star state parting company with the rest of the country. Tinges of racism emerge. One GOP official, treasurer of a county Republican group, wondered in print in a local post-election newsletter why Vermont and Texas should live under the same government. His newsletter proposed an “amicable divorce” from the “maggots” who re-elected Obama, since many of them voted on an “ethnic basis.” No comment on whether any white republicans voted ethnically. State petitions are

Back to the press release. “Custodial and chemical safety, housekeeping practices, infection control, washroom maintenance and window washing, carpet cleaning and floor care.” In other words janitorial. Now I am not mocking janitors - having spent time on a sawmill clean-up crew I know the drill. And if they work for a big, unionized company they can make darn good money, certainly enough to support themselves and their family. But they will only find jobs if the major projects like the LNG plants go through. And as the government knows full well, the skilled labour shortage relating to those projects is not janitors. It is millwrights, electricians, welders and the like. And this program does absolutely nothing to address that. In short, a desperate announcement by a desperate government.

HIV is a real concern within our communities. You can contract HIV primarily through unprotected sex and by sharing needles. HIV can live in your body for years without you knowing and all the while you can be passing it to others. At least 25 per cent of people who are HIV+ do not know and these 25 per cent are estimated to be responsible for 75 per cent of new infections.

Time to think about Hampers Christmas 2012 is fast approaching and the Kitimat Christmas Hamper Appeal is once again underway. In 2011 the citizens of Kitimat and Kitamaat Village, some Terrace businesses, as well as a couple of off-shore corporations, generously donated $46,992.91 - our highest amount of donations ever - enabling us to fill over 300 Christmas hampers and to continue assisting the less fortunate in Kitimat and Kitamaat Village throughout the year. We also received numerous boxes of food, gifts and toys thanks to you all. The Christmas Hamper Appeal is under the auspices of the Kitimat Food Bank Society. Our organization is run strictly by volunteers and the majority of the donations are used for the needy with a small portion going for operating expenses. We are the only organization distributing Christmas hampers in Kitimat and Kitamaat Village. Christmas hampers include a voucher (for a turkey, ham or other) along with the trimmings for a Christmas dinner. Schoolchildren, churches and other community groups donate a significant amount of the food. New toys are included for children 12 and under. We like to include gifts for all teens and

adults and appreciate receiving gift certificates for music downloads, books/magazines, video rentals, swim/skating passes, phone cards, toiletries, flowers, restaurants, or other gifts suitable for teens, women and men. Gift certificates from local merchants are a wonderful idea as this enables recipients to purchase something they would enjoy as well as supporting the local economy. We do not give clothing as gifts, apart from mitts, gloves, toques etc. as sizing is a problem. We would appreciate receiving unwrapped gifts as we have a Gift/Toy Committee who wrap and mark gifts. This makes it easier for us to know how many gifts we have for each age group. This year hampers will be delivered on Saturday, Dec. 15 beginning at 10:00 a.m. We would appreciate receiving donations of food and gifts by December 9 so they can be sorted, wrapped and packed prior to delivery. Hamper requests must be completed and dropped off at the Salvation Army Thrift Shop or the Food Bank (through mail slot if Food Bank is closed) by Friday, December 7. Phone requests are not accepted and late forms will go on a waiting list. Hamper request

Passing grade A 2011 housekeeping audit done on Northern Health facilities shows Kitimat did well in cleanliness. The external audit was conducted by Westech. All rooms in facility are considered, but the outside areas are not. To pass an audit a facility must receive at least 85 per cent. Kitimat General Hospital received a score of 94.36 per cent. For comparison, Terrace’s Mills Memorial Hospital received 93.32 per cent.

forms can be picked up at the Food Bank, Social Services Office or the Salvation Army Thrift Shop. This year we have a change in venue for our Sharing Tree. As Wings Travel are in the midst of downsizing their office space, Envision Financial Credit Union have set up a tree in their office and donations of cash, gifts and non-perishable food items may be dropped off there during regular business hours (Monday – Thursday 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; Friday 9:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.). As we are obligated to follow the Food Safe Rules for B.C. we are not allowed to accept home canned fruit, vegetables, fish, etc. Cheques may also be dropped off at Thomas Cook Wings Travel during their business hours or mailed to Box 20, V8C 2G6. Receipts are issued for donations of $10 or more for income tax purposes. If you wish further information please call 632-6611, leave a message and someone will contact you. Thank you all for your ongoing support - we could not continue to function without your generosity. Marjorie Phelps & Pearl Lennox, Co-chairs Christmas Hamper Appeal

Cannabis Crusader stops in Kitimat during tour Cameron Orr Is Dana Larsen weeding out bad police policy in B.C. or will the whole plan just go up in smoke? If his numbers are right it’s actually the former, as the Cannabis activist travelled Northwest communities, promoting his plan to see a referendum in 2014 that would effectively decriminalize cannabis possession. Larsen was in Kitimat on Nov. 8 at the library to explain his position. The self-described Cannabis Crusader said his ultimate plan is to implement what he calls the Sensible Policing Act in B.C., the way to get possession decriminalized. Because the Drugs and Substance Act is under federal jurisdiction, B.C. doesn’t have the power to make the substance outright legal, but the province does have the power to decide how to direct their enforcement of the law. “It would basically instruct all the police in B.C. to leave people alone when it comes to simple possession,” said

“I would say the harm Larsen to the Sentinel by to somebody from getting phone before his Kitimat charged and getting convictappearance. ed for cannabis possession It’s not a far-out idea; is greater than any potential he said in 2003 B.C., along harm from using cannabis itwith other provinces, deself,” he said. cided to refuse to enforce That harm includes difthe long-gun registry.

Kitimat remembers our nation’s heroes

GATEWAY perspectives

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. 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. The Gateway project will likely never see a major marine oil spill. But if it does, we’ll be prepared to protect our coastline.

Skaters stand tall at sectionals Two Snow Valley Skating Club skaters took to sectionals in Parksville earlier this month and said it was a great learning experience to prepare them for more competition next year. Mariah Carvalho and Kendra Brousseau were the only two skaters from Kitimat who fit the conditions for attending the sectionals. They say they’ll take what they learned to improve their performance for next year. “It was a good skate, I think I did okay,” said Kendra. Head Coach Cynthia Medeiros said that competitions are good for local skaters because locally there just isn’t the opportunity to see higher level skating. The skaters in Parksville, by comparison, are from all over the province and in the top flights of their division. Skating performances are done twice. They

start with a short skate where they do three jumps, two spins and some footwork sequences. Then they follow later with a longer performance that is a bit more flexible, said Medeiros. She added that the two girls did better in the short skate than they did in the long one. Kendra competes at the novice level and Marriah is in the pre-novice category. Competitively this is the end of the season for them. The sections were a qualifier to go to higher levels like nationals but with Kenda in 19th place and Mariah in 52nd they are happy to just come home and make sure they shine even brighter the next time. And it’s certainly not to be considered a loss. Kendra revels in the opportunity to meet people and friends, while Mariah said the highlights for her is just being able to perform in front of a much larger crowd.

Demons scorch Rupert Submitted The Kitimat Ice Demons spoiled the Prince Rupert Rampage’s belated home opener with a great two goal bounce back from trailing 3-1 with two minutes left in the second period by scoring twice in 90 seconds and going on to clinch the affair, 5-3 in the third. This was a fast, hard hitting, but essentially clean game, with few penalty calls, only one minor each in the third period when a great goaltending duel took place between Keano Wilson in the Rampage net and young Tyson Craven, again between the posts for the Ice Demons. Both goaltenders made some saves that the crowd really appreciated and actually applauded, along with the groans from both sets of fans. The Ice Demons out-shot (14to-5) and out-played the Rampage in the first period but could not beat Wilson. The closest to a goal was a post hit behind Craven on a long shoot in from centre. The Rampage began to get their skating legs in the second period and were quick to answer an opening goal that put the Demons ahead by Derek Wakita, coming to take a pass back from Kory Finn to beat Wilson high. Terry Whelan also assisted.

the puck from close in on Wilson, who had no chance. Terry Whelan got his second assist of the night on the play. The clincher goal came at 17.41 with a nicely combined passing play that saw Derek DeLisser appear to finish with a hard shot (Jon Aiken, Dave Venman) but DeLisser said afterwards Terry Whel-

That was at 3:55 into the period and the Rampage scored the tying power-play goal (D. Wakita, high sticking) at 6:39, on a passing play finished off by Tom Robinson (Kory Movold, Greg Sheppard). Motivated, the Rampage got two more goals quickly five minutes later when Kory Movald slid a cross crease pass from Tom Robinson behind Craven to give the Rampage the lead. They made it 3-1 on a defensive lapse that sent Sid Spracklin in alone on Craven three minutes later. Craven made the first stop but Spracklin heft the rebound into the net at 14.40. The third period was mostly all Demons, except for a couple of surges by the Rampage, which were met by good defensive blocking and about four exceptional glove grabs by Craven. Demons took the lead at the 8.16 mark on a goal by Dave Venman moments after he returned to the ice after a two minute unsportsmanlike penalty and a 10 minute misconduct for arguing too strenuously with the referee in the second following the third goal by the Rampage. Venman picked up the pass from Mildenberger at the Rampage blue line, deked the defense and roofed
