PRINCE RUPERT - On Dec. 15, 2012, at approximately nine a.m. members of the Prince Rupert RCMP detachment responded to a complaint of a two vehicle head on collision on Highway 16 at the Ridley Island turnoff in Prince Rupert. At the time of the collision road conditions were extreme, with heavy snow falling and the highway was covered with slush. Upon arrival at the scene investigators determined that one of the vehicles had been traveling westbound towards Prince Rupert. As this driver approached the Oliver Lake area they lost

Wrapping up the mess once the wrapping paper’s made it Contributed The Northern connector

TERRACE - By now, many of us have started to minimize our footprint during the holiday season, from avoiding disposable gift wrap, to choosing gifts that have less packaging. Despite our attempts to minimize excess waste leading up to and during the holidays, there is usually still a bit of the inevitable aftermath: leftover packaging, food, and finding a new home for gadgets, toys and electronics that have been upgraded or replaced. The good news is that B.C. is a leader for Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programs, which put the onus on producers to take full responsibility for the collection and recycling of their prod-

ucts and packaging. EPR programs cover everything in B.C. from paint to batteries! B.C.’s expanded electronic-waste programs is the first of its kind in North America. Below is a quick review of some of the recycling options for the most common items you may need to recycle during the holiday season. This list is by no means exhaustive; please refer to the Recycling Council of BC website for all EPR and recycling options available in the Terrace area. Batteries & Cell Phones: City Hall (3215 Eby) or see www.call2recycle.ca for a full list of dropoff options. Cardboard, Plastic and Paper Packaging: Waste Management Community Depot (4430 Keith), Do Your Part Recycling (3220 River Dr.) Electronics, bottles and most

Used furniture, building materials and working appliances: Core Store (3111 Kalum Street – Coop Property) Take notice of what is leftover this holiday season. Are you still producing more waste than during other times of the year? Feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you have received? Start talking now among friends and family to come up with alternative gift ideas for next holiday season (i.e. experiences versus physical presents) and ways to further reduce the amount of waste produced in your household throughout 2013.

B.C. Supreme Court decision gives the go ahead to Watson Island sale By Shaun Thomas The Northern connector

PRINCE RUPERT - On Dec. 14 the Supreme Court of B.C. Ordered that the Certificates of Pending Litigation (CPL) on Watson Island be lifted, opening the door for the City of Prince Rupert to sell the property to the Watson Island Development Corporation (WatCo). In his 16-page ruling, Master Muir said she was satisfied that the City of Prince Rupert had demonstrated hardship and inconvenience as a result of the Certificates of Pending Litigation based on the risk of an environmental spill, the costs associated with cleaning up any such spill and the fact that WatCo has offered to pay for immediate clean-up of the chemicals if the “lingering issues related to ownership are dealt with”. The ruling also refutes any claim Sun Wave has made about being given ownership of the land once more through the current legal

dispute. “Sun Wave has not argued that it can avail itself of any statutory exceptions contained in the Local Government Act of the Land Title Act sections relied upon by Prince Rupert,” reads the ruling. “Sun Wave is entitled to proceed and obtain a declaration that the actions of Prince Rupert [related to the tax sale] were ultra vires, if that is the case. Sun Wave is, however, barred from recovering the Lands by the statutory provisions set out above,” wrote the judge in the ruling. “I am therefore of the view that the claim of Sun Wave to an interest in the Lands is overcome by the statutory provisions of the Local Government Act and the Land Title Act and hence there is no foundation for a Certificate of Pending Litigation to remain on the titles.” And while the ruling closes the door on Sun Wave possibly reclaiming ownership of Watson Island, it does not pre-

clude financial damages being awarded to the company. “Damages are sought, however, and could be awarded in this action,” reads the ruling. “While I appreciate that the power to cancel a CPL should be exercised with very great caution when a party is seeking specific performance, I am satisfied here that damages will provide adequate compensation to Sun Wave.” While not commenting on this ruling specifically, Prince Rupert mayor Jack Mussallem said he’s glad to see progress being made on the Watson Island file. “It is good to see the court dealing with these applications because anything that is cleared up going forward allows for more opportunity for Watson Island,” he said. WatCo CEO Perry Braun said he too was happy with the resolution. “We are pleased with the court’s decision today. It addresses one of the major conditions in our acquisition of

Watson Island and paves the way for the purchase to move forward,” he said in a statement to the Prince Rupert Northern View. “We believe in the future of Watson Island as a multi-product bulk terminal that will provide good-paying jobs in the region. The next step is to complete the remediation and development plan that would allow the purchase to be finalized and the site to be redeveloped in an economically and an environmentally sound manner.” WatCo plans to tear most of the old pulp mill buildings located on the approximately 300 acre island down to the ground, saving some building and structures like warehouses and water treatment tanks for re-purposing, and create a logistics and export facility. The plan calls for light industrial and ancillary uses near the entrance, significant bulk storage on the site, bulk liquid storage for products like Canola oil and improvements

Conservation officers put down a wolf By Martina Perry THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

PRINCE RUPERT - Conservation officers from Terrace believe the number of wolf sightings in town may slow down after a wolf was put down in Prince Rupert on Dec. 18. “We received many complaints [and we believe] a majority of those complaints came from one wolf. Hopefully that one is gone now,” Dale Kluivers, a conservation officer from the Terrace office, said. Complaints from Rupertites included a wolf following both humans and pets, with those complaining describing a similar fur pattern on the animal bothering them. Kluivers came to Prince Rupert on Tuesday and located a wolf in the Park Avenue area fitting the description and shot it due to safety concerns. “This particular wolf

was acting bolder and bolder and losing its natural fear of humans. It was associating people with food… So that’s why it was following people,” he said. “If one bear, cougar or wolf gets habituated and acts unnaturally it will show up all over… Wolves move around pretty quick.” But Kluivers does acknowledge there are more wolves in the community, informing the Prince Rupert Northern View the conservation office has received 72 calls regarding wolves this year, with 70 of them coming in after Nov. 7. Of these complaints, the majority are said to have come from the 2nd Avenue West and Park Ave. area, as well as the 6th, 7th and 11th Avenue East and Seal Cove areas. “There is a healthy wolf population on the island because there’s a healthy deer

Prince Rupert’s

population. There’s also lots of stray cats [for wolves to prey on],” Kluivers said. The RCMP have also been receiving numerous calls regarding wolves. Constable Matt Ericson, spokesman for the Prince Rupert RCMP, said there have been 11 calls received regarding wolf sightings since November, with the RCMP receiving eight of those calls in December. Ericson said a majority of the sightings came from the Moresby or Sherbrooke area, with Ericson speculating the wild animals are coming down from the mountain. Jack Mussallem, mayor of Prince Rupert, points to the time of year for the number of wolf sightings. “People notice wolves more at this time of year. I think that’s largely because the sources of food that are readily available, such as small animals, [are now obscured] because

For a Brighter Smile...

of the snow and some smaller animals wolves would normally eat are in hibernation,” he said. Mussallem didn’t imply the City would be pushing for a conservation Office to be opened in Prince Rupert in the near future, however he said down the line he would like to see a Ministry of Environment office opened in the community. “As Prince Rupert gets busier I’m hoping to see the Provincial Government start to concentrate on our area more,” he said. To avoid having your pet targeted by a wolf, Kluivers reminds pet owners to keep dogs on a leash while walking them. If a wolf can be seen keep the dog close and pick the dog up and slowly back away if the dog is small enough. “The wolf will just see a little dog as prey, like a cat,” he said.

FOR THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - What an amazing few weeks this has been collecting and preparing for hampers and now they are delivered — from what we understand to many happy clients. Thank you to all the dedicated volunteers who made this happen - it was a very busy week leading up to December 15. We had so many spectacular gifts donated this year and Santa really did come early. Even the snow did not prevent our volunteers from completing their mission; of course the sun came out once all hampers had been delivered but this is Kitimat. Once again the generosity of our community and Kitamaat Village is inspiring - in a few short weeks the grand total to date amounts to $34,373.24 and we know there will be more donations coming in over the next couple of weeks. We received boxes and boxes of nonperishable food items as well as hundred’s of gifts. The new companies in town have been most supportive in joining the local companies and individuals in the Christmas spirit of giving. I must apologize to the CFNR radio station for incorrectly using the wrong station number last week. Their volunteers, as for the past several years, set up a truck outside Super Valu on December 9 collecting in the neighbourhood of $600 as well as seven grocery carts overflowing with food. Thank you also to Shell for their donation of $500 worth of food plus 100 Overwaitea Gift Bags; IDL (in addition to the money noted last week) for donating a truck load of food and DL Baker for donating over 200 gifts in addition to their cash donation. Tim Hortons donated 15 $20 gift certificates and 15 toques. Other donations for the past week included: K Meyer $25; Anonymous $10; H Adams $50; K Renhack $25; KCS Restoration $25; C Gordon $50; A Lacasandill $20; L Stewart $20; Nechako School $25; L Strecheniuk $300; Ms M Grant $100; Kildala School Penny Drive for Turkeys $237.06; J Peck $50; P Goncalves $100; International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers $500; A Penner

While we only filled just over 200 hampers this year (we assume many of our clients are now employed or have left town) your generosity will allow the Food Bank to carry on for

2013. Once again your have proven what a giving and caring community you are. Thank you and may you all have a very blessed and joyous Christmas. A final article will be forthcoming in the new year with a list of all the groups who gave so freely of their time and vehicles as well as an updated tally of donations.

Chinook have a rough year By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - Acting manager at the Kitimat Fish Hatchery says most salmon stocks were good this year, with one exception – the chinook. The popular spring salmon saw its worst return since the hatchery came into existence, said Markus Feldhoff. “We didn’t even come close to getting our egg target,” he said, which is about 2.3 million eggs. This year they couldn’t even reach one million. “Most of the northern stocks of Chinooks was also very poor,” he said, noting it wasn’t only the Kitimat River. She personally has no theories on why the return was so bad, but in past years they have

not had any problem in reaching their egg targets. Steelheads were good for the hatchery, and they collected their normal allotment of 60,000 eggs. Steelheads are raised at the hatchery for two years now, a change from past years where they were housed for only one year. When Eurocan’s mill closed, the hatchery lost its source of heated water. Now the steelhead live in well water at about 8C degrees, not warm enough to let them grow rapidly. “That water isn’t quite warm enough to grow them to an appropriate size,” he said. “We keep them on-site for two years before we release them.” He said they will have to wait until 2014

to see how the return is from their first batch of two-year steelhead. It also looked like another good year for chum, continuing the trend of the last two years. “We did notice they appeared in the river a bit earlier than we normally saw,” he said. The hatchery takes in about two million chum eggs now, compared to a historical four million eggs from the Kitimat River. The hatchery also no longer enhance other rivers off of the Douglas Channel. As for coho, they had no problem collecting their brood stock of

about 600,000 eggs. From the administration perspective he said staffing continues to be a concern at the facility, which is operated under the federal govermnent. He said a hiring freeze remains in effect throughout the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, but thankfully hatcheries have been spared the axe in terms of layoffs. However they can’t hire full time employees. Where they are supposed to have eight, they only have three at the moment, with the remainder filled with temporary staff.

pet of the week

PRINCE RUPERT - Shell Canada will no longer be pursuing any coalbed methane development in the Klappan, an area where the Skeena, Nass and Stikine rivers form that is known by First Nations as the Sacred Headwaters. The announcement of an agreement between the Province of B.C., the Tahltan and Shell Canada came on the morning of Dec. 18, an agreement that will see Shell immediately withdraw plans to develop the area and return the 3,200 square-kilometres in tenure acquired in 2004 back to the government. “Shell has a robust portfolio of exploration and production opportunities in North America. Currently, Klappan is not a priority project and Shell has decided that it will not pursue oil and gas activities within the Klappan region of Northwest British Columbia at this time,” said manager of communications for Shell Canada Larry LaLonde in a statement. “Additionally, Shell proposes to conduct reclamation work on sites where we were active in 2004 and 2007. This reclamation work is consistent with Shell’s sustainable development principles to ensure these sites return to a natural state.’ To prevent any conflicts about developing the area in the future, and as part of the agreement, the Provincial Government will not issue any future petroleum or natural gas development tenures in the Klappan area. “The Klappan is one of the most sacred and important areas for our people. It is a place of tremendous cultural, spiritual, historic and social importance. Our people do not want to see it developed, and we look forward to working with B.C. on achiev-

Polar bear swim a chilly way to start off the new year The Northern connector

PRINCE RUPERT Nothing starts off the new year better than going for a swim in the freezing cold ocean. Or at least the Prince Rupert Rotary Club believes so, organizing the annual Polar Bear Swim each year as one of the ways the club gives back to the community. “It’s quite the experience to jump in the water. It’s a great way to start off the new year‌ If you don’t want to jump in it’s always fun to

point and laugh at your crazy neighbours,� said Shaun Thomas, co-chair of the Polar Bear Swim Committee, who will be jumping in himself. The event brings in brave individuals of all ages, from pre-teens to seniors, who show up year after year making this event a success. The Polar Bear Swim will begin at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1 at Rushbrooke Floats, but the Rotary club encourages people to come down at 12:30 in the afternoon for hot beverages and hot dogs prior to the

swim, courtesy of the club. Since the Polar Bear Swim isn’t crazy enough, over the years organizers have urged participants to dress up in costumes, offering the best dressed individual and group prizes. The Prince Rupert Rotary Club sends thanks out to the local business who spon-

sor the swim, and to the Search and Rescue crew who are on patrol each year ensuring all swimmers are safe. 115 Thorncliffe Park Drive

PRINCE GEORGE - The Charles Hays Rainmakers junior boys traveled to Prince George on Dec. 14 and 15 for the College Heights tournament, and finished second among the teams. Charles Hays opened the tournament against Correlieu of Quesnel and came away with a 58-27 victory. Perry Terrell led the team with 15 points, followed by Rosendo Masocol with 13 points. Following that victory the Rainmakers met up with Nechako Valley of Vanderhoof and, with excellent rebounding and hustle from the starters and the bench, Prince Rupert came defeated the Vanderhoof squad 49-33 to advance into the finals. Perry Terrell again led the team with 23 points. Charles Hays tipped off against DP Todd of Prince George in the final game. According to coac Kevin Sawka, the first half saw a slow start and missed opportunities that made it difficult to gain momentum. In the second half the team started to pick up the pace and cut the Prince George lead to 10, but foul troubles saw Masocol and Terrell on the bench, which allowed DP Todd to go on a big run and finish the game by a score of 60-39. Rosendo Masocol was named a tournament allstar.

Maxwell & Dorothy Cheyne Celebrating 65 years together! January 2, 2013

Together, they have found a friendship, raised a family and built a beautiful marriage. Their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren wish them a lifetime of loving, caring and sharing. Cheryl, Doug and families; Barbara, Roy and families.

Jose Manuel Piques

May 23, 1939 - Departed December 30, 2008 Dad, you will always be remembered as a very strong man with a generous heart, a man who was opinionated at times but still very loving. We respected you till the end. There are times when we are together, events are recalled, stories of our childhood are recounted, smiles then hard laughter can be heard as your grandchildren are there listening and laughing along with us. Your memory brings tears and laughter. Thank you for all that you shared with us. Your loving wife Maria; daughters Isabel and Nelly; sons John (Stacey) and Paul; grandchildren Mercedes, Danielle, Savanna, Jonah, Amber, Brendan and Connor.

Sadly missed, fondly remembered and forever loved.
