The Nuxalk community continues to support the national 'Idle No More' movement

Idle No More protests continue locally and across the country CAITLIN THOMPSON Freezing temperatures last Friday morning didn’t deter the Nuxalk community from uniting once again to demonstrate their continued dedication to the national Idle No More movement. Amid boycotts and largescale protests, Prime Minister Stephen Harper met with a number of First Nation

leaders in Ottawa. That same morning, the Nuxalk community were marching, drumming, singing, dancing, and reaffirming their declaration that they are a sovereign nation. The Idle No More movement, which began in November and quickly spread, is largely a national protest against Bill C-45, the federal government's

omnibus bill that proposes changes to the Navigable Protection Act as well as the Indian Act, raising fears it will breach aboriginal treaty rights. Divisions remain among First Nations chiefs and leaders, some of who refused to attend the talks with Prime Minister Harper unless the Governor General was also in attendance.

However, the Assembly of First Nation’s National Chief Shawn Atleo said last Friday’s meeting with the prime minister had achieved “some movement” and that Harper, “for the first time, provided a clear mandate for high-level talks on treaty implementation.” Locally, Idle No More has inspired the Nuxalk community to ‘exercise their

rights and responsibilities as a sovereign nation,’ and to ‘stand together and share a common voice.’ Elected Chief Councillor Andrew Andy expressed support for the Idle No More movement and Attawapiskat Chief Teresa Spence, who is entering her fifth week of a hunger strike. SEE IDLE ON PAGE 3

World Day of Action planned for MPs return on January 28 continued from

Page 1

“The Nuxalk Nation Chief and Council is encouraged by the high level of interest and participation in the Idle No More movement,” said Andy in a written statement. “Like Chief Spence’s community of Attawapiskat, the Nuxalk Nation community needs improvements to housing and basic services for our people.” A recurring theme among the Idle No More movement is the duty upon First Nations to speak for the land and ensure that their resources are protected for future generations. Hereditary Chief Deric Snow said that, for Nuxalk people, Idle No More is waking up the community and reminding them that they hold traditional rights to this territory, something Bill C-45 threatens to erode even further.

“Bill C-45 takes away our rights as First Nations people,” said Hereditary Chief Deric Snow. “And the impacts of this bill don’t just apply to First Nations, they apply to everyone in Canada.” Bill C-45 could be said to bear special significance to the Nuxalk due to the fact that they are categorically ‘nontreaty,’ meaning that they have not entered into treaty negotiations with the federal government and remain strongly opposed to the process. Hence, Bill C-45 has the potential to impact decisions made over land and resources located in territory that, in their eyes, unquestionably belongs to the Nuxalk people. This places them in a unique position, as Canadian and international law does recognize the Nuxalk as having jurisdiction over

their land as a sovereign nation, and the Royal Proclamation of 1763 legally protects their rights and title. In practice, however, Nuxalk control over their resources remains limited and negotiations with various levels of government have yet to result in any meaningful agreement. Snow went on to say that Idle No More has been the catalyst to bring the community together and remind them that they have a voice to speak for their land. Additionally, the Nuxalk community can identify with the problems plaguing reserves across the country and is hoping the movement will bring understanding to the challenges facing First Nations people. Referring to the 1995 standoff at Ista, Snow said, “We are a political people, and this is

not the first time we have come together and attracted international attention.” Part of Friday’s march included hand-delivered letters from Hereditary Chiefs to various government offices, reminding them that they are operating within Nuxalk Traditional Territory. “We certainly did not request that anyone leave our territory today,” said Snow. “We are simply reminding them that the Nuxalk have never ceded, sold, or relinquished their land to anyone.” Idle No More shows no sign of slowing down. Organizers with the grassroots movement are calling for an Idle No More World Day of Action on January 28, when Canadian MPs return to the House of Commons.

Hereditary Chiefs Cecil Moody, Deric Snow, and Wally Webber took part in the march

Bella Coola Community Forest hoping markets will improve in 2013 Press Release It has been a while since there were any logging trucks hauling community forest wood here in the valley, but starting in mid-January, the trucks will be rolling again. 2012 was a quiet year but there was always something going on behind the scenes. Although market conditions were slowly, but steadily improving during the year, log prices were not adequate to justify logging the blocks available on the community forest and the first half of the year was spent trying to come up with a viable logging plan. By re-engineering the cutblock that was burned in the 2009 Salloompt fire and applying some innovative log processing and marketing ideas, a plan was formulated to salvage log approximately 5,000 m3 of Douglas-fir, hemlock and cedar. The challenge in salvage logging the partially burned timber was the marketing of the logs as most mills and export customers will not purchase scorched timber. However, by bucking off the charred part of the log, which local mills are interested in purchasing, the remaining log is upgraded and sellable at prices that makes logging the block economical. Once our local contractors became available from finishing some flood restoration projects, road construction began

in late October, felling of the block began in late November and by early December logs were being skidded to the landings. All the work was done by local workers with Bella Coola Contractors doing the road building, Redline Falling doing the timber cutting and Bettor Enterprises doing the logging. The other challenge in salvage logging the burned block was safety. The Salloompt fire was a very hot ground fire which burned out the roots of shallow rooted trees, like hemlock and cedar, making them potential danger trees that are difficult to fall and they could easily topple over unexpectedly. Extra precautions were incorporated into the safety plan and the falling phase was completed without incident. In laying out the Salloompt cut block a number of factors had to be incorporated into the design. The block is located on the highly visible west side hill of Salloompt peak but the block is barely visible from view sites along Hwy 20 due to its small size, natural shape and foreground screening. Small glimpses of the block can be seen just north of the old ‘triangle’ block. The other key consideration was goshawk habitat and in collaboration with Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations biologist a comprehensive habitat reserve plan has been produced

Bettor Enterprises new log loader and grapple skidder working on the community forest in Salloompt. for the community forest and much of the timber above the Salloompt block is now designated for goshawk nesting habitat. Other activities in 2012 included salvage of more than 20 truckloads for firewood from blocks logged in previous years in Nusatsum. Roadside slash piles were burned to create plantable spots

and all the blocks logged in the valley have been planted and stocking surveys indicate good survival and growth. Going into 2013, markets are expected to continue to improve and the community forest is working on a logging plan that will hopefully see more work and logged timber than 2012.

the Bella Coola Valley are decreasing slightly in value compared to last year’s assessment roll,” said Darin Johnson, Deputy Assessor. “Most home owners in the Bella Coola Valley will see modest changes in the -10% to 10% range. Part of this change in value is due to the completion of a residential reinspection program that took place during 2012.” Overall, the Bella Coola – West Coast Assessment Roll decreased from $276 million last year to $274 this year. Despite this decrease, a total of $3.2 million was added to the assessment roll which includes subdivisions, rezoning and new construction. “Property owners who feel that their property assessment

does not reflect market value as of July 1, 2012 or see incorrect information on their notice should contact our office as indicated on their notice as soon as possible in January,” said Johnson. “If a property owner is still concerned about their assessment after speaking to one of our appraisers, they may submit a Notice of Complaint (Appeal) by January 31, for an independent review by a Property Assessment Review Panel,” added Johnson. The Property Assessment Review Panels, independent of BC Assessment, are appointed annually by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, and meet between

February 1 and March 15 to hear formal complaints. Changes in property assessments reflect movement in the local real estate market and can vary greatly from property to property. When estimating a property’s market value, BC Assessment’s professional appraisers analyze current sales in the area, as well as considering other characteristics such as size, age, quality, condition, view and location. Real estate sales determine a property’s value which is reported annually by BC Assessment. Local governments and other taxing authorities are responsible for property taxation and, after determining their own budget needs this spring, will calculate property tax

North Coast MLA Gary Coons not seeking re-election in 2013 After two terms serving as North Coast MLA, Prince Rupert's Gary Coons has decided not to run again. “I am very honoured to have served the people of the North Coast as their MLA. Getting to know the people of this region and the issues that matter to them has been an incredible learning experience that I will never forget. I’d like to thank the people of the North Coast for putting their trust in me. Whether we were working to keep the Skeena River fish farm free, fighting for action to address the Highway of Tears, standing up for the Sacred Headwaters, campaigning to stop the HST, holding firm against the Enbridge pipeline and crude oil tanker traffic, or addressing ferry fares, none of the work I’ve done would have been possible without the support of the people of this region,” said Coons. “It’s been exciting to work with my North Coast constituents, New Democrat leader Adrian Dix and my colleagues in caucus. I’m proud to be part of such a strong, principled and dedi-

Two-term MLA Gary Coons has decided he will not run again

cated team of people who have the best interests of British Columbia at heart, and I’m looking forward to seeing them bring forward positive change in 2013.” NDP leader Adrian Dix praised Coons for the work he has done in his time in the NDP caucus. “In the legislature Gary has distinguished himself as an effective champion of our coastal waters and communities, drawing attention to how they are essential to B.C.’s economy and environment,” said Dix. “In the wake of the Queen of the North tragedy, Gary's quest for answers helped bring about improvements in marine safety. His knowledge of B.C.’s coastline, and commitment to the people who live there, were on full display when I recently joined him for a tour of the Douglas Channel.”” “He passionately demonstrated the importance of the tanker moratorium, now under threat from the Enbridge pipeline proposal, as we navigated through these beautiful but challenging waters,” continued Dix. “Gary has been

a powerful voice in making the case that the Northern Gateway Pipeline puts at risk both the economy of the North Coast region, and its marine wildlife and ecosystem. He may be leaving public office, but we all know he will continue to be a staunch defender of B.C.’s best interests.” The President of the Prince Rupert Teachers’ Union Joanna Larson, and Prince Rupert City Councillor Jennifer Rice are both seeking the nomination for the North Coast BC NDP in the next provincial election at a meeting to be held on January 26th. “We have 2 excellent, high calibre candidates and I am excited for either candidate to represent the North Coast and bring positive change to BC,” said Coons.” It has been an honour and privilege to have had the opportunity to serve and represent those on the north and central coast.” Larson and Rice are both eager to represent the region and make positive change for the residents of the North Coast.

Ridge Riders can attest to the importance of such funding programs in assisting local not-for-profits to improve their facilities and offer programs for youth that might not otherwise be available in the community. This year’s award will be used to continue with improvements to the facilities at Walker Island, including the replacement of old grandstand seating with new steel-frame

structures. The rodeo grounds and other facilities at Walker Island were significantly damaged during the 2010 flood, and because the facility is owned and operated by a private non-profit society, it was not eligible to receive Disaster Financial Assistance. Available resources had to be redirected to recover from flood damage, rather than toward other improvements, as previously

planned. The grant from the Williams Lake and District Credit Union is a most welcome contribution to this small volunteer-run organization, as it continues its efforts to offer healthy recreational opportunities to youth and families in the Bella Coola Valley. One call does it all......

Acwsalcta Basketball teams take second and third place in December tournament Lindsay Gericke

250-982-2696 • Hagensborg

The Acwsalcta School Basketball teams travelled out of town in December for a tournament in Barriere BC. The students were excellent representatives of our community. The Acwsalcta players were making friends with their competitors and the spectators. People remembered us from last year and couldn’t help but cheer for us! The girls played two close games against Ashcroft and Princeton, coming out with the win in both games, advancing them to play in the gold medal game. The girls played excellent basketball, and gave the Pemberton team a run for their money, but in the end took home second

place. The boys won their game against Ashcroft, but had a tough time against Summerland. They played the Barriere

team for third place and came out on top with a win! Both teams were happy with their excellent results, and were

excited to return home to share their experience with friends, family, the school and the community. Thank you

to Gerry Tallio for getting us there and back safely!

An Ice Christmas ……….. Wayne Levesque With a perfect ice skating climate, the Snootli Ice Rink was in full swing all through the holidays. A dedicated team of volunteers, under the direction of Caroline Granander, provided a fresh ice surface on an almost daily basis. The entire community enjoyed the opportunity and hopefully we’ll see more of the cold, clear conditions The rink has been a community asset for decades, with many heart warming tales of family and friendship, there too, are many a heart breaking stories of coastal weather conditions bringing grown men to tears. A

lot of work can go into building a solid ice foundation only to have it destroyed by the elements in a matter of hours. There was a time when a makeshift “zamboni” was constructed by eager minds and was used to clean and flood the ice surface. The fact is the true Canadaian ice rink is flooded by a lonely figure with a water hose and a thermos. So, while the NHL continued to lose its glare and audience, the game was on in Bella Coola. Thanks go out to Caroline Granander, Jim Clair, Jared Etsell Denis Tippie, Patrick Gunderson and numerous others for maintaining the rink as well as the community spirit.

Local animal rescue group, ‘Dog Town – Bella Coola’ recently received a $500 donation from the Central Coast Regional District’s Grant-in-Aid Funding. Local animal rescue group, ‘Dog Town – Bella Coola’ recently received a $500 donation from the Central Coast Regional District’s Grant-in-Aid

Funding. This generous donation will join other recently received community donations that will help deliver flea and tick control medica-

tions, provide food to needy community animals and with support from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), will assist in sending numerous dogs and cats at risk out of the valley for spay, neuter and rehoming. Dog Town has been in consultation with the CCRD and there is interest to establish a long-term plan of support for Bella Coola’s companion animals. It is hoped that with generous donations such as received from our Regional District, a long-term ‘home grown’ animal health care service can be established for the pets of the Bella Coola valley. Dog Town’s volunteers are grateful for the generous personal and corporate donations already received from the

group can continue to focus their energy towards promoting the belief that longer living community animals will support a physically and emotionally healthier community.

The burden of diabetes in Canada Dr. Paul Martiquet, Medical Health Officer This article is the first in a series of three about diabetes in Canada. We start with a look at the burden of the disease and its impact on our health. Then we examine the prevalence of the disease in children and youth, and among First Nations. We wrap up the series with a look at how to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a seri-

ous chronic disease that arises when the body is either not able to produce enough or is unable to use insulin. It is the leading cause of heart attack, strokes, kidney failure, blindness and limb amputation. It is also the leading cause of death by disease in Canada. A 2011 report from the Public Health Agency of Canada called Diabetes in Canada: Facts and figures from a public health perspective provides a compre-

hensive look at diabetes and its impact on Canadians. It describes a situation of crisis: unless action is taken, diabetes will threaten the lives of millions more Canadians and endanger the future sustainability of our healthcare system. How extensive is diabetes in Canada? In 2009 almost 2.4 million Canadians were living with diabetes. Worse, about 20% of diabetes cases remain undiagnosed. In the decade to 2009,

diagnosed cases of diabetes increased by 70% in Canada. Among those aged 35 to 44, the proportion doubled. At current trends, it is estimated that in ten years, the number of cases will rise to 3.7 million. Currently, more than 338,000 British Columbians are living with diabetes; this number is projected to increase by 62% over the next decade. The health impact of diabetes is significant and costly, both

in terms of suffering and illness and financially. People with diabetes are three times more likely to be hospitalized with cardiovascular disease than individuals without diabetes. They are 12 times more likely to be hospitalized with end-stage renal (kidney) disease, and almost 20 times more likely to be hospitalized with nontraumatic lower limb amputations. Diabetes shares a number of risk factors

with other chronic diseases: 36.5% of Canadian adults with diabetes also reported two or more serious chronic conditions including high blood pressure (hypertension), heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, mood disorder, and/ or arthritis. For every age group, individuals with diabetes face mortality rates at least twice as high as higher than those without. Diabetes is not only a cause or seri-

ous disease and death, it also has a significant impact on people’s quality of life. Reports from Public Health Canada and the Canadian Diabetes Association show that while some progress has been made by governments in addressing diabetes, this progress is dwarfed by the growing burden of the disease. Dr. Paul Martiquet is the Medical Health Officer for Bella Coola.

Bella Coola Sun Run/Walk Training to start January 22 Plans are underway for the Sun Run walk/ run training which will start January 22, Tuesday, 6pm at the Moose Hall. Although the pro-

gram is meant for us to do the training three times per week, the Tuesday session will be for the whole group. The first training session is at 6pm,

with an information session to follow. The Registration event will be on Thursday, January17, 4:30-6:30 pm at the Moose Hall. Come on

run/walk from Moose Hall on March 9, and a 10km run/walk from Lobelco on April 20. The Sun Run attracts all levels of participants because of its unique training programs and clinics, designed to cater to everyone from the very beginner to the expert runner. The program also focuses on healthy eating, proper walking/running techniques, and injury prevention.

Bella Coola has consistently participated in the Sun Run run/walk training for a number of years and groups often travel to Vancouver to participate. The Vancouver Sun Run has been Canada's largest 10K road race since its inception in 1985. Founded by former Canadian Olympians Dr. Doug and Diane Clement along with Dr. Jack Taunton, the

run's purpose was to promote the benefits of running to improve health and fitness as well as support elite amateur athletics. The first run attracted 3,200 participants, now close to 50,000 people participate in the event. Locally, Janice Kyle is responsible for the Sun Run run/walk training.
