Rupertites question methods used to assess home values By Quinn Bender The Northern connector

PRINCE RUPERT Following BC Assessment’s assertion early January that properties would see a modest increase of three to seven per cent this year, some Prince Rupert residents were shocked to discover the actual numbers when they arrived in the mail. “Ours went up $50,000!” wrote Janis Alexander-Gray on The Northern View’s Facebook page. “I thought it was a typo.” “We could never sell our house for what its assessed at,” read another post. As complaints filed in to social media sites, a number of Prince Rupert residents, who

claim their properties underwent no improvements in the past year, simply wanted to know why their property’s assessment spiked upward of 25 per cent ­— a dollar figure ranging from $30,000 to $60,000. Prince Rupert Blvd resident France Powell saw her property jump 26 per cent. “I understand why properties are going up in value and I’m happy to pay taxes for things like schools — that’s my duty and I’m happy to pay for community services. But when I’m presented with such a steep increase, I would like to know why.” Powell says she refurbished her front steps last year, but has done no other home improvements. Comparable homes in Prince Rupert

saw similar increases, but on Powell’s street the only home that sold last year did so for 16 per cent less of its assessed value. “I have done nothing to the building that would justify this assessment,” said Powell.” But without a formal review of the property BC Assessment said it is unable to offer a satisfactory explanation to homeowners like Powell. “Our appraisers look at data,” said Geoff Radkie, a deputy auditor with BC Assessment. “They analyze current sales in the area. Some of the newer homes in Prince Rupert were indicating sales of a 25 per cent increase. If there is a similar property in that area… it’s going to reflect that market value assessment.”

“That said, we will look at the type of home too. We’re not going to value a home built in 1940 the same as a brand new home. It’s about the characteristics — the age, the quality, the size, the condition, what kind of view or the location it’s in… [But] we do mass appraisals, so there are ones that slip through the cracks.” Radkie added less than two per cent of Rupertites contested their assessments last year. But his department is “more than willing to review any property, and if there is a mistake that needs looking at we’ll definitely look at it and make sure it’s correct.” Property owners who feel their assessed value doesn’t reflect the actual value can request an assessment review by

“Information is critical for us,” he said. “We don’t make a decision until we get that accurate information we need.” That said, there is still work to do provincially. “The information was still delayed compared to the Alaska site but a lot quicker than what it was.” He’s referring to the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Centre. He is also happy with the coordination the Emergency Operations Centre, which ac-

tivates in events such as earthquakes, had with industry and Kitamaat Village. A call to the head of the Haisla Volunteer Fire Department was not immediately returned. Volunteers were evacuating the village the morning of the earthquake in the hour before the cancellation of the tsunami warning. A debriefing of emergency personnel in Kitimat has already taken place to bring up ideas for further improvement.

“There’s a lot of long term stuff that needs to happen,” said Bossence, such as an overall review of Kitimat’s emergency plan. Shortly after 1 a.m. on January 5 a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit off the southern coast of Alaska. The shaking could be felt in Kitimat and it sparked a tsunami warning for the B.C. coast, however waves only reaching half a foot high were recorded. The tsunami warning was cancelled a little after 3 a.m.

Kitamaat and Kitimat prepared for shaking, rattling and rolling TERRACE - The January 5 earthquake off Alaska was another test of Kitimat’s emergency preparedness, and Fire Chief Trent Bossence said he definitely saw improvements compared to the October 27 earthquake in 2012. “Comparatively it went well,” said Bossence. “There’s lots of different circumstances with this one but the whole big picture of what we were trying to accomplish went very smoothly.” He said he’s happy with the speed with which information was spread into the public. He points to new channels such as Twitter and Facebook that allowed them to get messages out. He’s referring to the Kitimat Economic Development Office’s Twitter feed (@KitimatEDO) and its newly created Facebook page. The official website for Kitimat, Kitimat.ca, was also updated with tsunami news. These events showed Bossence that their short term goals were being met, goals which were set after the October 2012 earthquake near Haida Gwaii. In that case he had said communication was an issue to work on. Fewer members of the public called the fire department this time and he also credits the province for stepping up their game in comparison.

Rail spur line opened Jan. 12 By Staff Writer

The Northern connector

TERRACE - Kitsumkalum First Nation and Canadian National Railway (CN) representatives Jan. 12 celebrated the official opening of a new rail spur to the Kitsumkalum Rock Quarry operations. The 3 km rail spur provides access to the CN main line. Kitsumkalum Chief Councillor Don Roberts commented: “The decision to invest in the construction of the new spur demonstrates Kitsumkalum’s commitment to its business growth and development opportunities in northwest BC. With several major projects planned for the region, construction demands will require high volumes of quality rock. Kalum Quarry is now positioned to meet that rising demand over the long term.” The official opening of the rail spur, which took place at Kitsumkalum, began with a locomotive entering the quarry for a ribbon cutting ceremony and included a bus tour. Kitsumkalum hereditary chiefs, community members, CN representatives, local, provincial and federal political and business leaders were in attendance. Kitsumkalum First Nation owns Kalum Quarry Ltd. Partnership. The business stems from a deal reached years ago between CN and Kitsumkalum to purchase rocks from the band to be used as ballast for the company’s railways. Beyond the rail ballast, research on the rock determined it could also be used for making cement aggregate and road base material to sell locally. In addition to aggregate extraction, 110 acres of land located next to the pit will be cleared for the purposes of a logistics park.

New ID cards rolling out By Tom Fletcher

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

VICTORIA - The B.C. government is rolling out its new high-tech medical services cards starting Feb. 15, in an effort to phase out millions of CareCards in the hands of nonresidents. The new cards will be combined with the B.C. driver’s licence, with a similar “BC Services Card” available to those who don’t drive. Residents will be required to re-enrol to renew the card every five years, whether they drive or not. Qualified residents can enrol in the Medical Services Plan at any provincial office that issues driver’s licences. There is no fee for the health services card only. The current $75 fee for a five-year driver’s licence renewal will apply to the new combined cards, discounted to $17 for seniors. There is no requirement to get the new card until your driver’s licence needs to be renewed. The govern-

Salvation Army support…

ment’s plan is to change over all eligible B.C. residents between the ages of 19 and 74 to the new cards over the next five years. To be eligible for MSP coverage, you must be a citizen or approved permanent resident of Canada, living in B.C. at least six months of the year. Dependents must also be residents to be eligible for coverage. The health ministry announced the new card program in May 2011, after a review showed there were up to 9.1 million B.C. CareCards in circulation. The total population of B.C. is 4.5 million. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the new card is designed to comply with B.C.’s information and privacy law, which restricts how personal data can be used and shared. That means ICBC and police have no access to medical files, and hospitals and medical offices have no access to driving records.

Totem pole proposed for school

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - The First Nations support workers at Mount Elizabeth Middle Secondary School (MEMSS) have embarked on a mission to see a totem pole erected at the school. The ambitious plan is only in its infancy stage but the workers have already secured a $2,600 grant from the District of Kitimat, which they hope is just the first in much such support. “It’s been a long time dream, to have something in the building that represents unity of our community and incorporates the awareness of the First Nations

culture in our school community,” said Katherine Johnsen, a counsellor at the high school. She said the vision is to put the eventual pole in the entrance to the school by the offices and have it available for students to walk around all sides. First Nations Support Worker Sheila Duncan said that if they can raise enough money for the project it’ll mean a hands-on project for students to learn from. “That’s our vision, of having the whole school take part in learning how to carve and learn some of the history of totem polls,” she said. MEMSS has approximately 110 First

Inclusive award given in Terrace By Staff Writer The Northern connector

TERRACE - A local Safeway assistant manager has been given an award as part of a province wide program recognizing employers for embracing inclusion and helping adults with developmental disabilities have a greater sense of community and belonging in their workplace. Jeff Hockman was nominated by Terrace Safeway employee Greg Garbuttt through Community Living BC (CLBC’s) fourth annual Widening Our World (WOW) Awards. The theme for the awards this year is employment. Five employers from different regions of the province were chosen from over 100 nominees – a WOW Awards record. This is the Terrace Safeway’s second WOW Award. The store was also recognized in 2011. Greg has worked at Safeway for over four years and says, “Jeff has been a great role model for me and he also

shows an interest in me outside of my work.” “He comes to my birthday parties and has taken me to the movies. Jeff never makes me feel like I have special needs and treats me like he treats everyone else at work.” Every year since 2009, Community Living BC (CLBC) has presented the Widening Our World (WOW) Awards to recognize British Columbians who are making exceptional contributions to the vision of full citizenship where people with developmental disabilities lead good lives, have rich relationships, choices in how they live and employment opportunities. Nominations of inclusive employers or co‐workers were submitted by self‐advocates throughout Community Living Month in October 2012. Five regional panels of community and family members, community council members, CLBC staff, service providers and self‐advocates selected the 2012

CLBC is committed to working with the B.C. government to deliver on all 12 recommendations in the Improving Services to People with Development Disabilities plan, which includes increasing employment planning and supports. CLBC’s recognition of employers who

are creating more inclusive workplaces complements this ongoing work. “I want to congratulate this year’s WOW Awards winners and all of the other employers who were nominated. Their efforts to promote meaningful employment opportunities for adults

with developmental disabilities helps raise community awareness about the importance of inclusion through employment in communities throughout the province,” said Doug Woollard, CLBC interim CEO. “It’s wonderful to see so many employers pro-

viding rewarding jobs and experiences to individuals with developmental disabilities, and they deserve recognition for their leadership in ‘widening our world’ by embracing diversity in their workplace,” added Moira Stilwell who is the province’s social development minister.

Spectra president: Resource export needed By Bill Phillips The Northern connector

may soon become our biggest competitor! Africa, South East Asia and Russia remain interested. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses are important, Bloom said. “B.C. is in a massive supply position,” he said. It has over 100 years of natural gas at current usage rates. It’s close to Asia, has a stable democratic government offering a safe place for investment and has well developed premier facilities. Some problems include the processes companies go through to get approvals which he said are duplicative, cumbersome and untimely. Though provincial and federal changes have helped, Bloom said there are still questions on whether or not anything can be built in B.C. in a timely manner. The country’s relations with First Nations is also misunderstood, slowing investment, Bloom said. Though there are issues, like the Idle No More rally’s, many First Nation groups have partnered

well with various businesses over the years, and many others have stand alone companies. In the last two years alone, Spectra provided $120 million in contractor work to local and Aboriginal partners. Though Canada is rich in resources, it has a modest population, causing regional economies to overheat, for example the tar sands, meaning skilled labour and management could be a limiting factor. “We are going to need to diversify our market. Even if they foresee it wrong, and it wouldn’t be the first time, growth in North America will be modest. The reality is rapid long term growth is in Asia. We need to be there.” Bloom said it is important to continue working to establish relationships with Asia, like the government trade missions. “We need to make this a collective priority,” Bloom said. To succeed, industry also needs the regulatory process to be rigourous, but on a global timeline. He added they need capital from North

Government looking at FSA changes By Tom Fletcher The Northern connector

VICTORIA - All students in Grade 4 and 7 who are able to are expected to write tests of literacy and math skills this month, but changes will be considered for future years, B.C. Education Minister Don McRae says. Long opposed by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, the Foundation Skills Assessment tests are being administered in public schools across B.C. The issue is sure to be debated in this spring’s provincial election, as the NDP campaigns to scrap universal testing and look for a new way to evaluate student performance. McRae said Wednesday there will be no change to the program this school year, with students only excused due to family emergency, illness or other

circumstances beyond the control of the student. But he said he is open to discussing the program with the BCTF, school administrators and parents for years ahead. “Any time we have a form of assessment, I think it’s really important that after you give it, if you’re going to give it again, you continually look at it to see if it can be done better or more efficiently, and meet the needs of the students, the parents and the educational system,” McRae said. NDP education critic Robin Austin said work is underway with education experts to refine the party’s position on skills testing. If the NDP forms a government in May’s election, the plan is to replace province-wide tests with a random sample of students, and develop a new program later. Austin said one of the problems with FSA testing is the annual controversy over the Fraser Institute school rankings based on test scores. The rankings are intended to help parents track their local school performance over time, but media attention typically focuses on comparing schools in rich neighbourhoods and poor ones. The BCTF continues to urge parents to bend the rules and pull their children out of the testing program. A letter to parents on the BCTF website argues that FSA tests are expensive, time consuming and “results are misused to rank schools and promote privatization.” McRae said FSA test results for all students have played a role in identifying students who need extra help, and can also help administrators spot performance problems in their schools. But he agreed with Austin that it would not be appropriate to use FSA tests alone to evaluate teacher performance. As a former teacher, McRae said one of his concerns about FSA is the timing. If they are going to continue to be used, the tests should be administered in the fall so teachers and parents have the results in time to work with students later in the school year, he said.

The BC Services Card. Your CareCard, and more.

GATEWAY perspectives

Spill response plan Over the last few months, I’ve talked 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 discussed 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.

One card. Many services. The new BC Services Card is part of government’s plan to modernize BC’s health care system. It replaces your CareCard, can be combined with your driver’s licence, and also acts as your photo ID. It’s more convenient and more secure, with enhanced features to protect your personal information. And getting yours is easy. Starting February 15, 2013, and for the next five years, you can simply enrol when renewing your driver’s licence. And even if you don’t drive, you can enrol at the nearest location where driver’s licences are issued. To learn more visit: BCServicesCard.ca

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.

Rampage win one, lose one in double-header

Rampage kept shutting the door to take a 3-2 win and hand the Steelheads their second straight loss. On Sunday, the Houston Luckies were in town following a 6-2 loss to the Kitimat Ice Demons the previous night. Much like Saturday night’s game, it was the visi-

tors who struck first and early as Houston’s Jaden Janzen put the puck home just 29 seconds in from a scramble in front. Prince Rupert responded though, as captain Jared Meers tipped in a Kory Movold slapshot right in front to tie things at one.

With 5:58 to play there was a scrum after the whistle that saw Greg Shephard and Cole Hasell drop the gloves, and the result was a fourminute Houston powerplay that the Rampage were able to kill off. While there were plenty of great opportunities late in the period, the

teams went into the second tied at one. In the second Houston again struck early, when a weak shot from just inside the line by Kurt Strimbold went five-hole with 17:21 to go. Prince Rupert was able to tie things up against just 69 seconds later when Movold finished off a great powerplay passing play at the side of the net. Eight minutes later it appeared as though the Rampage took the lead, but the goal was called back due to a player being in the crease, and that would prove to be a costly call as Houston’s Skylar Hasell put one past Wilson right off the faceoff with 1:40 to go to give the Luckies the 3-2 lead heading into the third. The Rampage actually started the final frame with a two-minute powerplay, but it was Houston’s Derek Dinelle fired a slapshot over the glove of Wilson just 12 seconds in to put the Luckies up by two. Movold lessened the gap with 17:23 to play with a slapshot from right in front. But a goal by Janzen with 4:09 to go put Rupert down 5-3, and with 2:28 to play coach Frank Pyde pulled the goalie only for Janzen to complete the hat trick with an empty netter to give the Luckies the 6-3 victory. The Rampage host the Omineca Ice on Saturday, with Terrace hosting Omineca on Sunday afternoon for the last River Kings game of the regular season.

school transition last year. “Now that we’re in our first year [of being a middle school] and we’re well on our way we certainly feel that the timing is right for something like this,” he said. So after being in touch with Pacific Rim Hockey Academy, which runs the programs in Maple Ridge, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Dawson Creek and Chetwynd, and receiving more information on how it could work here, they received the go-ahead from the Coast Mountains School District at the Dec. 19 meeting to proceed with community consultation and planning. “Now that we’ve got the board approval from the school district, the next step is going to be an open house in February. We’ve got information from Pacific Rim that we’re going to push out to parents, and what we’re going to look for next is an expression of interest,” said Barron. If the support is there, which, Barron says they are “ very hopeful and cautiously optimistic” about, they’d then go about figuring out the logistics of the program. This includes who would be the teacher in charge (at least one teacher has to be trained through

the academy to administer assessments) and who would coach the students – some schools find coaches in the community, while others use teachers already in the schools who have coaching experience.

But Skeena says it is committed to it being an inclusive and accessible program – they don’t want to see students turned away because they can’t afford it, the same way they deal with their volleyball and basketball teams. So they’ll be looking at options for student financing, which could include support and sponsorships from community groups and First Nations Bands, and using revenue from renting out the school’s gym. “We will make sure that those opportunities are known and available so that we can offer this to kids,” said Barron. The program will also be inclusive in other ways. “Girls and boys participate, and in a couple of academies across the province girls’ participation is very, very high. Kids who play ringette. It’s open to kids of all skill levels – you don’t have to be the hockey super star, you can be someone who is beginning to learn the sport,” he said. “We love the way it fits in with the curriculum, everything that Pacific Rim has outlined meshes perfectly with the phys-ed curriculum. We’re really excited about the office component as well. They spend

quite a bit of time with the dry-land training, the nutrition, the healthy lifestyle – it’s not just the hockey component.” And academics are an integral part of the program as well. “It’s another opportunity we can offer kids to keep them and give them a strong connection to the school and their academics and community,” said vice principal Killoran. “There’s a good link between playing and academics.” And the school is aware that this might mean an increase in enrollment numbers, as the program could attract students from surrounding areas. “That’s not a driving force behind what we’re trying to do, but we are aware,” said Barron, noting that this might be a jump off point for other schools across the district to start similar programs. “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. We’re not trying to recruit.” And Killoran points out that it has the potential to keep students in the community. “We’ve heard about families and students who are leaving the community, specifically to go to something somewhere else,” he said. “So if we can provide that opportunity here...”

PRINCE RUPERT - The Prince Rupert Rampage knocked off the CIHL leading Smither Steelheads to start a double-header weekend On Saturday night the team hosted the league-leading Steelheads, who were coming off their first loss of the past two seasons, and the powerful Smithers offence struck early when Adam Devries beat Keano Wilson less than two minutes into the first. But after some back and forth play the Rampage tied things up on a wrist-shot by Ryan Stace-Smith just over halfway through the first, and Brian Tates would give Prince Rupert the lead with 3:42 to play. Prince Rupert took a 2-1 lead into the second frame. The two teams would prove an equal match for much of the second, until a late powerplay saw Lane Perry beat Wilson with just 12 seconds left to tie things up and set the stage for an exciting finish in front of the packed crowd. In the third, Wilson came up with some big saves to shut the door on the Steelheads early. Just over halfway through the period Prince Rupert found themselves on the powerplay and, with the crowd cheering on the home team, Kory Movold capitalized to put the Rampage up late in the game. While Smithers kept up the pressure, the

Middle school hockey academy proposed for Terrace By Anna Killen THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - Nearly everyone who has touched the Terrace school system has heard of at least one student who left Terrace to pursue sports at a school down south. Whether it was dance, soccer, hockey – the lower mainland provides opportunities that simply aren’t offered here. But if administrators at Skeena Middle School have their way, that won’t be the case forever. As early as next year, Terrace could see its first middle school also become its first hockey academy, with students enrolled in the new program as early as next year. That’s the goal, at least, according to Skeena principal Phillip Barron and vice principal Cory Killoran, who first entertained the idea of a sports academy here in town while they were touring middle schools with similar programs about a year and a half ago. “We had the opportunity to talk firsthand with the principals at the schools, and the staff, and some of the students enrolled and it all seemed very positive,” said Barron, noting that they waited until this year to pursue it because they were so busy with the middle

“There’s a good link between playing and academics.” Skeena VP Cory Killoran They’ll also have to figure out when the classes will take place at the Sportsplex. They are leaning towards the beginning of the day or the end of the day, so that the school only has to cover one end of the transportation costs. Then there is the issue of who is going to pay for it. The program costs money, so parents would have to be prepared to foot the bill. Literature provided to the school board from Pacific Rim states the program is $246 a month, that’s $1232 for one semester, September through January, or $2460 for the full year.
