Volume 57 No. 48

David Black’s overseas trip positive for refinery plan Cameron Orr Kitimat Clean President David Black says the response to his Kitimat-based refinery proposal in Japan and China has been positive, while his critics in the oil sands have been growing more silent. Black, also Chairman of Black Press, the newspaper chain which owns the Northern Sentinel, spent his Halloween, and the days after, travelling to Tokyo then to Beijing to pitch his refinery plan to about a dozen companies. Each company he spoke with has asked for more information, he said, while at least one is planning a trip to Canada in December to speak to him further. “It was all pretty positive. Everybody was interested, everybody wanted more information and not one of them said ‘well, no, we’re not interested.’,” said Black. In addition he said each company also inquired about their ability to potentially invest in the proposed refinery. Black said there is the opportunity for minority stakes but he would want to keep the company controlled in Canada. Black said he’s baffled by early critics to the plan who had suggested Asian markets did not want to import refined fuels. “I never understood that. That’s what [John] Horgan and others said. I never understood where they got that information from,” he said. “There’s a big market in refined fuel. In fact it was the single biggest export from the United States last year. They sold $88 billion in refined fuel.” While Black has plans to visit other countries, including Korea, he said Japan and China both have strong reasons for getting behind a Kitimat refinery. In China the reason is fairly straight-forward; they need more oil each year, said Black, and their option is to build their own refineries or get it from Canada. Getting it from us would be cheaper, Black argues, and better for the environment. China’s main source of power for refineries would be burning coal. “So if they let us build a refinery instead, they don’t have the same pollution issue.” The situation in Japan is a bit more unique. Black said that they’re actually at over capacity for refinery production, but the changing supply of oil means they have serious investments to make in the future. Continued on page 3

Habituated wolves from the Hospital Beach destroyed Cameron Orr A pack of wolves which had grown cozy feeding off the kindness of strangers were destroyed on Nov. 14 because they had become too habituated to human contact. Area conservation officer Dale Kluivers confirmed last week that the wolves, which to some people had been an attraction around the Hospital Beach area, had become way too comfortable around humans, a dangerous thing to be when you’re a wild animal. Two wolves had been seen for about two weeks prior to Kluivers arrival to their hangout and he said in all there was a family of five. “They were very habituated. When I came there they came right to the truck,” he said. “They were really looking for handouts.” He said conversations with Rio

Tinto Alcan employees revealed that the wolves would actually follow people around who parked at the beach and got out of their vehicles. “By feeding them...they get so accustomed to human food that it decreases their natural food gathering skills,” said Kluivers. “They should be hunting deer and moose with their family.” The potential danger to humans is that if they don’t receive a steady supply of food once they’re habituated like these ones are, they can get quite bold in their behaviour. Kluivers suspects these wolves were being fed by people in the summer and through the fall but as the weather got colder people stopped coming by as often. “Because they ware so skinny, I think they just didn’t know how else to get their food anymore.”

Maryann Ouellet, who manages the Kitimat Humane Society shelter, said that they initially heard about the wolves when they received a call about a “mangy looking dog.” When she got there she found one of the wolves laying on a rock. She thought it was a coyote at first. Speaking to the Sentinel before the wolves were destroyed, she said she already knew what likely lay in store for the animals, due to the fact they were being fed. “You’ve basically just signed their death warrant,” she said. Efforts were made by her to try to get the wolves into a wildlife shelter, but wolves cannot be legally trapped without receiving special permits, and Kluivers thinks destroying them was actually the best option for them.

Continued from page 1 “I don’t like to destroy those beautiful animals. [But] for the animals themselves, it’s no suffering anymore. I think for the animal itself it’s the best solution.” He said putting them into a shelter would mean they would have to spend their entire lives in a cage. Relocation also likely wouldn’t work because, due to their habituation and lack of hunting skills, they would very quickly end up in a work camp or in a town somewhere. The biggest takeaway for the public from this is to think before trying to feed wild animals. Handing food to them will only make kitimat them dependent on food and take away their own ability to heated hunt. self serve Meanwhile anystorage units one who notices a Sizes from wildlife violation can 8’x8’x10’ to call 1-877-952-7277, 12’x 27’x10’ or use an online form 250-632-6934 at the BC Conserva414 enterprise ave. tion Officers website.

Council seeks power answers from Hydro

Black’s refinery Continued from page 1 “The world is moving to heavier oil. The supplies of light oil have been going down about three per cent a year so more and more refineries are having to put in coking equipment so they can handle heavier oil,” he said. “In Japan’s case, they’re going to have to put a lot of money into their refineries… why not come over here, buy into a new Kitimat refinery, and bring the refined product back to Japan and land it there cheaper than they could produce it?” He also said Japan’s tight energy infrastructure could be loosened by shutting down some of their existing refineries, shifting their supply from a Kitimat refinery. “Sure enough there was a lot of interest [for that],” he said. Interest continued to grow, not just from Asia. He said he had a recent meeting from a North American company interested in the refinery to supply diesel.

How bad is it?

Dana Larsen’s recent tour to promote the decriminalization of cannabis use brings up a long-standing issue of whether we as a society really care about whether people get high or not. I don’t know about everyone else here but I know I don’t. After talking to Larsen recently I can begin to appreciate what he means when he talks about the policing resources it takes to deal with marijuana is not worth the trouble. Right now I’m looking at the number of Kitimat RCMP files that were opened regarding marijuana and so far this year there have been 25 cases. For possessions, there have been three cases for cocaine, and none for meth or ecstasy. There have only been two cocaine trafficking cases and two of trafficking other drugs. So on the drug front, marijuana is definitely taking up a bigger slice of time than all other drugs combined, if the numbers of cases are anything to go by. Of course that says little of whether or not smoking up is actually harmful. And sure, smoking marijuana is harmful. As bad as cigarettes? I doubt it. As bad as alcohol? Comparable, I’m sure. To get a better sense of this I turned to reports from the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. According to their documents, they say research is showing cannabis could negatively affect mental and physical health, cognitive functioning (skills like memory, for example), ability to drive a motor vehicle and the development of children born to those who use cannabis. If I didn’t know better I might think they were talking about alcohol, or Halloween candy. (“Wait, how many peanut butter cups did I eat?”) Even when it comes to brain function, their report continued that long-term use doesn’t appear to produce lasting impairments, the concern is really when adolescents use it, in which case maybe the problems would last because of the stage of their brain’s development. Now, they said frequent users are at increased risk for psychosis or psychotic symptoms, and while I have nothing to counter that claim, I do wonder whether the studies for that were using medically supplied cannabis and not drugs people have been acquiring from the street.

Case 2: While we are at it, do the people of British Columbia truly expect or appreciate their Minister of Aboriginal Affairs “apologizing” on behalf of the government for the colonial days hanging of two native men in 1869? B.C. didn’t even become a province of Canada until 1871. So, while there may be some questions about the guilt or innocence of two men, John Anietsachist and another man named Katkinna, who were hanged at Estevan Point, north of Tofino, for the alleged murder of two shipwrecked sailors. Historians however have suggested that “faulty interpretation” of testimony in native language may have contributed to their conviction. “May have.” They don’t really know. To be fair, there’s nothing wrong with Ida Chong attending a “reconciliation” feast with the Hesquiaht First Nation. But it’s clear even Ms. Chong was aware that an “apology” would be examined – so to my mind, she acknowledged there might be a “difference in interpretation,” by merely expressing regret for the deaths. The expression of regret, and not an apology, was fitting because British Columbia did not officially become a province until 1871, Chong said. Continued on page 5

The Bible’s word is reliable Cannabis Hebrews 4:12-13: “For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword.” It’s nothing new for the Bible to come under attack, this has been going on since the beginning, and so today we will look at a couple of the accusations that have been used to discredit the Bible and see if they stand up. The first accusation is, “The Bible is just a book of made-up stories.” For this we can look outside of the Bible and see what archaeology has to say. From the walls of Jericho to the Sea of Galilee; from newly discovered writings and manuscripts to building inscriptions, the more they dig, the more they prove that the events of the Bible are not flights of fancy, but that they are actual events that involve real people in real places. And so, in terms of historical accuracy, the Bible is reliable. The second accusation is that it is a human document and God was not in-

Well, consider that it has lasted intact for centuries against all the opposition against it and that there are 24,000 ancient manuscripts of the New Testament alone that have been preserved (the next closest is Homer’s Iliad with 643). That has to be God preserving His Word. A second way to see God’s hand in the Bible is in the prophesies in Scripture. No human can predict the future 100 per cent of the time, but even if we look at just one aspect of prophesy, that of the coming Messiah, we can see the Bible’s accuracy. There are 61 dif-

ferent prophecies of the Messiah in the Old Testament; and from Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem and His betrayal for 30 pieces of silver, both prophesied 500 years before His birth, to His death on a cross prophesied 1,500 years earlier, we can see that the Bible has an unblemished record of fulfillment of all 61 of these prophesies in Jesus Christ. And that’s just the prophesies of Christ. This could not happen in a human document. Friends, it is not possible to properly defend the Bible in this short column, so I will simply challenge you to read it for yourself, or find a church in Kitimat that proclaims God’s Word as truth, and see for yourself. It is living and active and in it we have been given God’s promise of eternal salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. No other book has that. It is God’s promise to you. You have His Word on it. Amen.

Warnings from out east Dear Sir, As someone who has been dealing with the environmental impact of an Enbridge project in Kincardine, I think I should share my experiences with those living along the proposed Gateway pipeline route to consider. Enbridge began operating a 115 wind turbine project in our community in early 2009. Residents living among the turbines started complaining about health issues almost immediately but they were brushed off by Enbridge whose local management chose to hide behind flawed Ontario government rules. A complaint resolution protocol formally written into government approvals for the project was ignored. Over the past two years, as we have presented case studies of twenty health affected households, Enbridge has still taken no action to ad-

dress these problems. Our local Medical Officer of Health responded that these residents concerns were ‘absolutely legitimate’; but Enbridge continues to stall taking actions to address the peoples’ issues. The Enbridge record of behavior with our project would indicate that their responsiveness to problems as claimed in their Statement of Corporate Values is fantasy. When seen in the cold light of day outside the Enbridge boardroom, it is merely a poster for a public relations exercise of the most cynical kind. Our experiences should be a warning for your community to be wary of Enbridge’s promises. Bill MacKenzie Co-facilitator, Health Affected Residents (H.A.R.M. Group) Kincardine, Ontario


Police seize cocaine, other drugs Kitimat RCMP announced they successfully executed a search warrant which lead to the seizure of a “large quantity” of cocaine. On Nov. 21 at around 10:30 a.m., RCMP members entered a home in the 500 block of Columbia Avenue and recovered an untold quantity of cocaine, marijuana and cash.

Police also say that a man was found in the home and was taken into custody. The man was released later in the day pending a future court appearance. As of the RCMP’s last report to council for the month of October there had been two cases of cocaine trafficking for 2012.

ans) that it was unjust – which started about eight years ago. Anyway, not to make “a federal case” out of it, I do wonder, seriously, if the government will allow itself to be persuaded to pursue the individual cases of other people executed for crimes committed in the last two millenia – and dispatch a Minister to express regret for the pain inflicted on all of the families, native or non-native. It’s sympathetic and garners media coverage, but I question, with all of the aboriginal issues facing the B.C. Government, whether this is really a good use of ministerial time or resources.

PTP workers blocked Cameron Orr An eagle feather was reportedly handed to surveyors working on behalf of Apache Canada to develop the Pacific Trails Pipeline, the first and only notice of trespass under Wet’suwet’en law. The feather was handed over by Chief Toghestiy of the Unis’tot’en Clan, under their traditional law called Bi Kyi Wa’at’en, or “responsibility of a husband to respectfully use and protect his wife’s territory.” Toghestiy’s territory, he said in a media release, is located on Clore River, which is a short distance east from Terrace. “We will be stopping all proposed pipelines,” he said. The surveyors were apparently stopped at the bridge crossing for the Morice River. After denying the surveyors access, the protesters say they have confiscated the equipment and will not release it until Apache and the Pacific Trails Pipeline company agree to open up “appropriate lines of

Public Notice Traffic Light Installation on Smelter Site Road Motorists are advised that a permanent traffic light is in the process of being installed on Smeltersite Road at the intersection of the KMP Construction Village entrance and West parking lot. Please drive with caution through this area and be mindful that work zone barricades have been erected, heavy equipment is operating on the roadway, and flagging personnel are directing single-lane alternating traffic.

Members of the Unis’tot’en protest pipeline development through their traditional territory. Submitted photo communication” with their clan and grassroots Wet’suwet’en members — neither group is affiliated with the Office of the Wet’suwet’en. This clan, they say, are dead-set against all pipelines that are proposed or expected to cross their territories — that also includes the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline from Enbridge. Freda Huson, who is the clan’s spokesper-

son, said that the Pacific Trails Pipeline has no permission to be on the territory. “You’ve received your warning. Don’t come back,” she also said through a media release. Meanwhile Apache’s communications spokesperson Paul Wyke confirmed that surveyors were asked to leave traditional territory on Nov. 20. “We under-

stand that there are some members of the Unis’tot’en who have expressed some concerns and we continue to consult with First Nations along the entire proposed pipeline right-of-way, including the Unis’tot’en,” said Wyke. He added, “The proposed Pacific Trail Pipeline project continues to benefit from strong First Nations’ involvement and support.”

As always, observe posted speed limts. Public safety is our number one priority.

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.

Channel Watch given award The Douglas Channel Watch and it’s roughly 50 members were congratulated by the B.C. Sierra Club with a Rosemary Fox Conservation Achievement Award. The Kitimat-based group has members here and in Terrace, and are regular attendees at Kitimat Council meetings where they typically present information pertaining to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline. The group has been a little silent the past couple of months at meetings only because members are focused on ongoing Joint Review Panel hearings in Prince George and, later, Prince Rupert. DCW member Murray Minchin said the recognition is nice. “We’re just a newly formed group, just a few years ago, so we’ve just put our heads down and just been chugging away and working really hard and it was really nice to be recognized for it,” he said. Councillor Phil Germuth did publicly thank the group for their work in light of their recognition with the award. Out of the 50 or so members in the group, three are actual intervenors in the JRP process, meaning they get the privilege of asking questions of the company during their application process. The award, said Minchin, who noted that no one in the group has any distinctive titles, gives their group more exposure and legitimacy. “It puts us out there in a new kind of way. It’s nice to be an award winning environmentalist than an enemy of the state,” he joked. He said their regular appearances at council meetings were something they were “forced” into after what they perceive as a lack of attention or movement from the local government. “It was our job to go up there and keep reminding them of the dangers and the things to watch out for.” Meanwhile, the group has been frustrated with a lack of information from Enbridge at the

Shaun Thomas The Enbridge Northern Gateway Joint Review Panel will be spending more than two months in Prince Rupert early next year as part of the final hearings on the project. The panel released a revised hearing schedule on Nov. 15, outlining opportunities to provide oral statements on the proposed pipeline from Edmonton to Kitimat, with Prince Rupert being one of only four communities in BC to host the panel. There will be three weeks of hearings in February, on the weeks of Feb. 3, Feb. 10 and Feb. 24. March will include two weeks of hearings, including the weeks March 10 and March 17. Hearings will resume on March 31, and will carry on through the weeks of April 7, April 21 and April 28, and a final week of hearings will be held the week of May 12. The hearings are scheduled, with the exception of the week of March 31, to run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday with four weeks including a Saturday morning hearing. According to Annie Roy, communications manager for the Joint Review Panel, the schedule is based on the expressed need. “The way it works is intervenors needed to provide us an estimate of how long they need to question the panel or the company.... Based on that information the weeks needed to be extended in order to hear from everyone,” she said. Other hearings will take place in Victoria and Vancouver. The panel expects to begin its deliberations in July and release its report on Dec. 29, 2013.

Airport stats

Murray Minchin with Douglas Channel Watch speaks at a recent rally at City Centre Mall. Cameron Orr hearings. “It was our job as intervenors to test the evidence. And there was nothing to test,” he said. A lot of their questions were put off, saying they would be answered through future studies. “Their finalized spill response plan will be done six months prior to operations,” he said, saying that they

were told that only up to 40 per cent of detailed engineering work would be done by 2014. “It was like trying to nail Jell-O to the wall.” At least with this award, he and the group’s other members know that all of their hard work and hours of dedication is being recognized. “There’s been a lot of work by a lot of people.”

Anna Killen Keeping with this years trend, the number of passengers at the Northwest Regional Airport continued to break records, with October 2012 being the second highest month in recorded history and easily the busiest October on record. “Usually October is on its way down,” said airport manager Carman Hendry. October 2012 saw 13,086 passengers come through the airport. That’s 383 more than September 2012 and 1,617 more than October of last year. The highest month on record was August of this year. 13808 passengers used the airport that month. “For a fiscal year it equals a 15 per cent increase over last year, and for calendar year its 16 per cent,” he said. The fiscal year ends March 31. “We’re five to six months into the fiscal year and 15 per cent ahead of the game,” he said. Airlines are keeping up with the demand, said Hendry, noting that Air Canada has three flights a day for the first time in a long time, and Hawkair is also seeing three departures a day, both seven days a week. “Usually the Saturdays have been one flight for Hawkair, two for Air Canada,” he said. And Central Mountain Air flies six times a week, adding to the total number of flights, which is around 50 per week according to the airport’s online schedule. The flight schedule this fall is equal to a summer flight schedule, he said.

Shoppers checked out the wares at the 40th annual Christmas Craft and Gift Fair at the Riverlodge on Nov. 2nd and 3rd.

Want the speed reduced Councillor Corinne Scott was taking a second swing at a proposal to reduce the speed limit on a portion of Highway 37S at a recent council meeting, something that had been first brought up by Mary Murphy in the past. The area in question is the highway from the Kitimat snowflake to Hirsch Creek Bridge. Currently a 100 km/h zone, Scott wants to see it dropped to 80km/h, as a safety measure mainly for the turn-off into Cablecar. This is a continuation of another motion council passed — that one also moved by Mary Murphy — that has the council asking the ministry of transportation to incorporate turning lanes into Cablecar. “However that may take awhile,” said Scott at the council meeting. She said reducing the speed limit is a potentially less costly action for the time being while turning lanes are worked on. Scott said that it’s unsafe having the speed limit so high, meaning that it takes a lot of attention to not slam into the back of another car who may be slowing to turn into Cablecar. “I think the reduction of speed right from the Kitimat entrance welcoming sign would be viable,” she said. Chief Administrative Officer Ron Poole also suggested to coun-

cil during discussion that this could be a good time to invite Transportation’s newest district manager to a meeting to discuss transportation issues. The motion as passed was to reduce the speed limit, and council added attaching an invitation to the district manager and to seek input from the town’s traffic committee. The only opposed vote to the motion was from Mario Feldhoff

who wasn’t in disagreement with the idea of reducing the speed limit but rather he would have been more comfortable seeking input from the traffic committee before proceeding with the request to the ministry of transportation. “I’ll vote against the motion because I feel technical input is important,” said Feldhoff, who still opposed the motion after it was added that the traffic committee would be in-

volved, however not before the request would be mailed. Scott said that she has no problem having the traffic committee discuss the issue but she didn’t want to seek their input first because she said she didn’t want the motion being lost to other layers of government. Council’s representative on the traffic committee Phil Germuth said that they had only met once in the past year.

Points for Demons Contributed The Kitimat Ice Demons picked up four points on the road recently, with a roughhouse win 10-4 Saturday Nov. 17 over the rambunctious Omineca Ice and a competent 4-3 win Sunday afternoon, Nov. 18, against the Houston Luckies On the Saturday night, the Omineca Ice fell behind 1-0 early in the first, when Jeremy Brady scored the first of a hat-trick 2:59 into the game, assisted by Terry Whelan and Josh Slanina. The assist was the first of a six point night for Whelan, three goals and three assists, as he finally got the scoring monkey off his back. Omineca tied the game 1-1, just five minutes later on a goal by Braden Babcock, (Tyrone Turgeon, David Guden) also on a power play with Jeff Mildenberger off for hooking. But that was the last bright spot of the night for the Ice as the rough play escalated and the Demons went on to score four more times in the first to take a 5-1 lead to the intermission. David Guden took a two minute slashing penalty a minute later and Jeff Baker (David Venman, Ian Coleman) made Omineca pay. Jeremy Brady (Jeff Mildenberger, Terry Whelan) made it 3-1 about four minutes later, followed by Terry Whelan’s first of three at 17:11, unassisted. With 35 seconds left in the period, Whelan got his second (Dave Venman, Jon Aiken) again on the power play, with Tyler Turgeon off for a trip. The Ice were unable to connect on two late power plays in the first as Josh March took two for a high stick and David Venman sat for roughing. The Demons picked up the pace with another five straight goals in the second period, with Derek DeLisser (Steve Venman, Josh Slanina) starting the parade at 5:39, another power-play goal with Nathan SilverVickers in the box for slashing. Terry Whelan added a power-play goal at 9:47 (Jon Aiken, Dave Venman) with Montana Turgeon penalized for slashing and two minutes later

Josh Slanina (Brandon Wakita, Jeff Mildenberger) made it 9-1 with Ice captain, Phil Simoes, in the box for tripping. Jeremy Brady scored his third at 15:36 (Derek Wakita, Brandon Bye) and Jeff Mildenberger finished the five-goal run with 1:37 left, with Simoes serving a two minute penalty for goaltender Nathan Vandelaar for delay of the game. Assists on the Mildenberger goal went to Jon Aiken and David Venman. Travis Champion and William DeJong had engaged in a roughhouse with 3:53 remaining and both got two for roughing and 10 minute misconducts as the rough stuff just kept going. With the 10-1 lead, the Ice Demons did not score again in the game, but clearly decided enough was enough – although the rough play was going both ways. Four minutes into the third Jordan Goncalves earned a roughing penalty, which led to a power play goal at 4.19 by Matthew Stang (Braden Babcock, Dustin Erickson). John Allessandrini got the score to 10-3 and with 3:31 remaining and Jordan Goncalves serving two for roughing. With about eight minutes left Jon Aiken and Michael Simoes roughed it up for two and a 10 minute misconduct each. In all the Ice took 70 minutes in penalties, and Kalen Bird was tossed for fighting after being hooked by Derek Wakita who didn’t drop his gloves but got a seat for two minutes at the 6.41 mark of the period. That was the last of the scoring but the whacking and slashing continued with Steve Venman getting two for a slash and Jordan Goncalves two more for interference. On Sunday the Demons found the Houston Luckies more prepared to play hockey than Omenica and, with Tommy Mildenberger in net, took a tied game 1-1 into the first intermission with goals for Houston by Jaden Janzen, who put the Luckies in the lead at the 13:15 mark of the period, assisted by Alonzo

The Kitimat Ice Demons beat the Omenica Ice on Nov. 17, 10-4 in Vanderhoof. Dennis Parfitt photo Slaney and Curtis Hendrickson. But the Demons answered that goal with one of their own at 18:50 when the Demons penalty killers had a shorthanded goal by Jeff Mildenberger, (Terry Whelan) with Jordan Goncalves in the box for hooking. Although shots in the period were 12-12, Demons were shorthanded twice in the first period, and then took the next three penalties in the second period. The penalties included two and a game for Kyle Boudreault for a hit from behind just three minutes in. That penalty however came just 90 seconds after Josh Slanina had given the Ice Demons a 2-1 lead inside two minutes, scoring on goaltender Brock Henricksen. At 1:20 on a passing play that saw assists go to both Venman brothers, David and Steven. Ian Coleman made it 3-1 at 13:18 of the second period, from Brandon Wakita and Jeff Mildenberger, again short-handed, but, with just four seconds left in the period, Alonzo Slaney got one back (unassisted) to make the score 3-2 at the second intermission. Shots in the period were again very close, with Demons out-shooting the Luckies 12-10 and the teams taking taking two minors each. The third period was more of the same with the teams exchanging goals with Slanina scoring for the visitors in the second minute, assisted by Derek DeLisser and William DeJong, while Blair Dinelle (Jaden Janzen) kept the Luckies close, with a goal at 8:19. Each team killed off two minors and the shot count favoured the Luckies 12-

Minor Hockey wants your points Kitimat Minor Hockey is hoping to score some points from the community. The non-profit organization works entirely off of donations, grants and registration to cover their operating costs and this year is no different. However they’re not asking for money outright from the town; they’re looking for Overwaitea points. The points will go towards a raffle which will fundraise for the group, ac-

cording to a letter from their executive. They’re asking that anyone who wishes to donate some of their grocery points can do so by completing a points transferal form available from, and handing that completed form to 28 Bayer Street, or mailing it to KMHA, Po Box 84, Kitimat, BC, V8C2G7, or even faxing it to 250-632-4646. The goal of KMHA is to collect

enough points for two free airline tickets with HawkAir. Two tickets works out to about 200,000 points, and they’ve already received a generous donation of 10,000, adding up to 15,000 total. Their goal is to have enough points by December but will be collecting points until February next year. Any more information can be found by e-mailing kitimatminorhockey@

11, but Tommy Mildenberger remained stingy. Luckies pulled Henricksen in the final minute but could not beat Mildenberger. The two wins gave the Ice Demons an 11 point lead in the Western Division as the Terrace River Kings couldn’t get the job done in Smithers against the Steelheads as they lost 7-2 Saturday and the Prince Rupert Rampage, were unable to take any points out of two games on the road, losing 4-3 Saturday night to Houston and then falling behind 5-0 to finally lose 6-1 to the Steelheads in Smithers on Sunday. Steelheads remained four points ahead of the Ice Demons in first place in the Central Division and the League with 20 points.
