Initials put to treaty deals NEGOTIATORS for the federal and provincial governments and the Kitselas and Kitsumkalum have initialed land claims agreements in principle which, if approved, will form the basis for final treaties. The initialing took place in Vancouver Jan. 22, setting the stage for both First Nations to eventually receive cash, land, resource control

and self-governing powers. Kitselas members are to vote on their agreement in principle Feb. 20 while a firm date for a Kitsumkalum vote has yet to be set. A simple majority of 50 per cent plus one voter of those who to turn out to vote is required for approval for each agreement in principle. Approval on the part of the provincial government

and approval from the federal side come from within their respective cabinets. Gerald Wesley, the chief negotiator for the Kitsumkalum and the Kitselas, said there were no substantive changes from details released last fall when a letter of understanding was signed. The land, 45,406.3 hectares or 454 square miles for

Kitsumkalum and 36,158.7 hectares or 362 square miles for Kitselas, comes from the provincial Crown and does not involve private land holdings. Under treaty negotiations principles in B.C., the province is responsible for land and resource elements while the federal government provides the cash which works out to $44.2 million for Kit-

sumkalum and $34.7 million for Kitselas. “But there will be an opportunity in the final treaty negotiations to make changes,” said Wesley. Agreements in principle aren’t considered binding. What is lacking in the initialed agreement in principle, just as was the case last fall when information was first released, are details

of fishery and marine allotments for the Kitsumkalum and the Kitselas. That stems from a federal government decision not to negotiate fishery components within treaties pending the release and consideration of the Cohen commission inquiry into the collapse of the Fraser River fishery.

BC Wildlife Fed opposes blanket fish ban proposal By Anna Killen


■■ Auto crime prevention terrace rcmp Const. Devon Gerrits puts a crime prevention notice on a windshield, part of a four-week campaign to cut down on auto crime. Officers will be checking vehicles to ensure they are properly locked and have no personal objects inside in plain view, among other things, to make sure they aren’t easy targets for thieves. The notice will let drivers know what they need to improve on, if anything.

The British Columbia Wildlife Federation (BCWF) has come out against the proposal to move trout and char to catch and release only in Skeena-region rivers and streams, citing the blanket nature of the proposal and the lack of money to properly manage the system. “Part of our position is that this is a blanket prohibition and the system lacks funding for the good management of the resource,” said Bill Bosch, president of the body which says it represents roughly 40,000 British Columbians. “Funding’s been cut all across the province for all kinds of wildlife management issues. It is a provincial issue – you can’t do more of the same with less money.” The proposal as posted on the forests, lands and natural resource operations website, states that the “Skeena Region requires a more precautionary approach to management of trout/char. The proposal change is to set regional angling harvest quotas of trout/char to zero. From this baseline, water-specific risks associated with harvest will be evaluated, with retention quotas reapplied where appropriate.” If the proposal goes through, the changes would apply to the Kitimat, Skeena, Nass, Stikine, and Dease River drainages. Lakes in the region

with wild trout and char populations would not be affected and keeping fish would still be allowed in those waters. Similar regulations are in effect in other regions of the province. A decision is set to be made on the regulation change by the end of March. A petition opposed to the change has been circulating around Terrace since early this year. BCWF also takes issue with how the proposal came to fruition. Critics of the proposal say a small amount of anglers have an unfair proportion of the say on how these proposals are written. “It’s very important to work with all of the stakeholders in a process that is fair, equitable and transparent,” Bosch said. “We’ll work with all stakeholders but the process has got to be fair.” In its formal submission to the government, the regional branch of the BCWF, the Northwest Fish and Wildlife Conservation Association (NWF&WCA), said the proposal was a “heavy-handed approach” that lacked scientific proof. “The proposal in question lacks stream and regionally specific science foundation to justify its application,” states the letter, addressed to Steve Thomson, the minister responsible for Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations.

City extends demo order A THIRD Little Ave. property owner has been given more time to tear down his building. George Vogel was given an extension of 120 days after an appeal to council Jan. 22. Council had earlier given two other Little Ave. property owners more time to tear down their buildings after they also appealed demolition orders issued by the city late last year. Council cited the derelict nature of all three properties and worried about health and safety in ordering their demolition. Vogel, the manager of 4450 Little Ave. on behalf of his mother’s estate, said he has been making improvements to the building in which he lives along with one tenant but has limited resources. “It’s unfair,” said Vogel. Due to time, weather, financial and other constraints, Vogel said it was unreasonable for the city to expect him to tear down his home on such short notice. He added truckloads of garbage have already


GEORGE VOGEL has been given more time by Terrace city council to tear down his Little Ave. home. been removed. Vogel said various building permit applications have been denied, leaving him to wonder how he could make improvements without having permits. Vogel’s building is also for sale, and he added that while it hasn’t sold yet he’s met some people who have shown interest in fixing it up. The building was built as officers’ quarters when the Canadian

Army had several thousand troops stationed here during the Second World War. Vogel has also taken in tenants on occasion and the renter currently living there pointed out that not all of them paid and that Vogel has provided food from his own pocket before. In response to appeals, the city’s director of development services David Block said that permit applications

must show viable plans contributing to structural integrity – ideally made by a professional to ensure improvements are safe. He also added that while various permits had been applied for, some were granted but did not apply to the whole building. Much of the building is not up to code and Vogel shouldn’t have tenants living there, said Block. Councillor Mary-

lin Davies commended Vogel for “humanitarian efforts” for taking in people who might otherwise have nowhere else to live. She did note, however, that council is bound to operate within legislation and pointed to a history of complaints dating back decades. Councillor Bruce Bidgood said the way building permits were issued seemed somewhat muddy, suggesting that council provide enough time for Vogel to fix up his residence. Block noted bringing the building up to code could take up to two years. Councillor Lynne Christiansen said that issues with the property have been ongoing. Mayor Dave Pernarowski voted for the extension and Bidgood was the only councillor who did not, saying afterward he felt “the refusal to issue a building permit would merit a six-month period to address all of the documented deficiencies in the property.”

Few attend budget meet PUBLIC participation came up somewhat short in a public budget session hosted Jan. 21 by the City of Terrace. In a room set for more than 50 people at the Sportsplex, just three people came to question council about 2013 draft budget matters and to respond to three questions asked by the city. Although the auditorium was mostly empty, it’s not too late for residents, said the city’s finance director Ron Bowles. The budget won’t be finalized until February – and there’s a few key matters on the table. “They will have more debate sessions,” said Bowles, pointing to council’s upcoming meetings for draft budget tweaks. Two out of three questions asked by council to audience members were to collect information for these sessions, noted Bowles. The first, “should business taxes be lowered and residential taxes increased?” was asked by councillor Bruce Bidgood. “Should council consider charging more taxes to residents and less to businesses to reflect the increasing value of homes?” Bidgood said that business and residential tax proportions have remained relatively stable but that recently the values of residential properties have been increasing at a disproportionate rate. As of July 2008, the average assessed value of a single family dwelling in Terrace, according to B.C. assessment, was $189,280. Now, the average value is $220,669 – based on assessments made in July 2012. That marks a 16.6 per cent increase. The average commercial property value picture over the same amount of time tells a different story. As of July 2008, that value was $497,133 – which increased over the next two years, peaking at $514,214 in July of 2010. This year’s average assessment values clocked in below the 2008 level, however, at $335 dollars less. Historically, commercial businesses have

paid more per $1000 dollars of assessed value than residential on the premise that businesses make an income using their properties. Last year’s ratio was $4.2 dollars on every $1000 of commercial property value compared to $1 of residential tax paid per $1000 of value. The weight of the city’s tax burden is carried primarily by residential and commercial taxpayers as Terrace lacks an industrial tax base to share the burden. Maatje Stamp-Vincent, who attended the budget presentation, doesn’t agree with the way the city is distributing its tax burden. But, she says its more complex than simply should residents pay more and businesses pay less. “An appropriate question for council to ask should be framed in terms of what is a fair distribution of the municipal tax burden between the tax rate classes,” she said. “How can we grow the tax pie to ensure that local small business property owners are not faced with year over year increases to their portion of municipal revenue in order for council to keep residential tax rates low? “Residents ask for and appreciate more services such as a water slide in the swimming pool or recycling services. So, who should pay for increased and/ or improved residential services?” But there are a few key reasons why commercial is taxed more than residential, explains Bowles. “It’s apples and oranges,” he said. First, commercial properties have an ability to generate income by using their property. Next, residents don’t have the ability to make more money just because their assessments have gone up and asking a resident to sell their home and then move elsewhere in order to afford to pay isn’t right, he said. Generally speaking, if commercial assessments go up it’s a larger indicator of affordability. Also, businesses are employers of employees which use residential services, added

Bowles. The next question was whether or not the downtown tax revitalization bylaw should be renewed. The program enables building and property owners within the downtown business improvement area to build, renovate or upgrade but have municipal taxes frozen at the property’s value prior to improvements for a five-year term. As the bylaw is set to expire soon, having started in 2009, the city wants to gather opinion about whether or not to continue offering such an incentive for improvements to the downtown core. “Evidenced by many new developments, the performance of the program appears to be highly successful. The city is equally aware that some of these upgrades may have happened without this ... tax incentive,” said councillor Stacey Tyers. As an example, in 2010, the program tax

impact meaning taxes not collected on rising values by the city was equal to $30,000. City finance director Ron Bowles said the program’s total cost to the city is hard to tally.

“This information … is not readily available,” said Bowles. But he did say more information will be available by the time another meeting is held later this year.

Terrace Standard  Wednesday, January 30, 2013


t’s been almost seven years since hundreds of people gathered in Prince George to examine the complex socioeconomic and cultural underpinnings of life in the north as laid out against the backdrop of murdered and missing women along the region’s highways. The focus even before the 2006 Highway of Tears symposium – and which sharpened afterward – seized on hitchhiking as an expression of those underpinnings in that the practice placed mostly aboriginal women in vulnerable and dangerous situations. A report from the symposium produced 33 recommendations. Although a governing body was struck to move those recommendations along, the report mostly passed from public notice until former attorney-general Wally Oppal’s report into the murders by Willy Pickton was released last fall. Oppal urged the provincial government to review and implement the symposium recommendations and the ministry and governing body are now in the process of doing so. In advance of the results of that review, here’s a look at what has happened with several of those recommendations concerning hitchhiking.

The RCMP THE SYMPOSIUM recommended the RCMP develop a system of stopping and gathering information from hitchhikers as well as passing out relevant information for hitchhiker use. And while police officers have always taken an interest in hitchhikers, they now have a form on which to record names, appearances, clothing worn and items carried by a person. So now when you pass a hitchhiker there’s a good chance they are already in a police database. It’s regarded as good police work, heightened by the numbers of murdered and missing women along northern highways who were either known to hitchhike or who were last seen hitchhiking. What’s more, explains Chief Superintendent Rod Booth, who is in charge of policing in the northern half of B.C., officers also have a list of phone numbers of social services agencies the person might want to contact A5

A look at what’s going to prevent hitchhiking along Hwy16

ficials say they are reviewing this recommendation along with counterparts from the justice ministry. The child and family development ministry says there is a 24-7 toll-free child safety phone line for any young people in need of help, and that there are transition shelters for adult and young women 19 years and over in Prince Rupert, Terrace, Smithers, Burns Lake, Vanderhoof and Prince George. For those under sixteen, the ministry would look to place youth in a supportive resource such as a foster home. And for young women 16 – 18, the first option would be foster care, as well, but in the event that the young women refuse, there are shelters open to accepting women of that age. There have also been cases where a support worker has stayed with youth in a hotel for the evening as a temporary solution. lauren benn PHOTO

this sign just off Hwy16 west of Kitsumkalum and one in Thornhill highlight an effort to stop hitchhiking. and personal safety tips to give to the hitchhiker. A hitchhiker isn’t required to provide personal information but the stopand-ask policy provided to officers does note it is illegal to solicit a ride. Booth said the information gathering fits three categories of policing – prevention, education and investigation. “Be it as a victim or a suspect, it’s good policing practice,” said Booth. The more formal approach to information gathering about hitchhikers grew out of the 2006 Highway of Tears symposium recommendations concerning the RCMP and was put into place in 2010. “With this policy, we’ve really made strides forward,” said Booth. “The information we gather could prove useful if someone goes missing,” he said. The RCMP have also increased the number of officers dedicated to patrolling on and around Hwy16 between Prince Rupert and Prince George. There are now two additional officers based in Prince Rupert, one in Terrace, and five in Prince George. That means more contact with hitchhikers, notes Booth. And officers assigned to

detachments or other duties also spend time on highways speaking to hitchhikers as time permits, he added. One aspect of hitchhiking prevention the RCMP will not take on is that of providing rides to those they encounter on highways. “Clearly, the role of the police is not to serve as public transportation,” said Booth. “That’s not our role and it won’t be downloaded to the police.” At the same time, however, depending upon individual circumstances, an officer does have discretion to transport a person to an appropriate location. Those circumstances include time of day, weather conditions and physical condition of the person, said Booth. “An officer may elect to drive the person to the nearest and safest place,” he said.

Transit THE prime anti-hitchhiking recommendation is to establish a shuttle bus service along Hwy16, suggesting that seven vehicles would be required. There are a number of existing private and public sector ways to get from Point A to Point B, but nothing as envisaged by the symposium. In addition to regular stops, “these shuttle buses must also stop and pick up every young woman they

encounter ...,” states the recommendation. The transportation ministry has promised to gather all those groups together “to build upon past studies into transit options in the region, and to identify transportation options,” states a ministry email. It is anticipated these discussions will be complete by the summer of 2013.

Greyhound THE PROSPECT OF a shuttle bus service aside, the symposium recommended Greyhound expand what it called a “free ride” program and that Greyhound drivers be required to stop and pick up any hitchhiker who falls within what it calls the “victim profile.” Although the symposium report never provided a definition of a victim profile it did note the majority of the women who have gone missing are young and are aboriginal. As it turns out, Greyhound doesn’t offer rides for free. It does participate in Operation Come Home – a program that will purchase a ticket for runaways between the ages of 16 - 19 so that they can travel home. Greyhound’s Operation Come Home participation extends throughout its service area which is from B.C.

to Ontario. Operation Come Home has to document the runaways and the one free trip is to reunite them with a parent or guardian. As well, stopping roadside and opening the doors to let on strangers poses serious risks, said Greyhound’s regional transportation manager Grant Odsen. “There’s huge liability issues if we just stop along the side of the road,” he said, adding Greyhound at this point doesn’t want people riding the bus without a ticket. “You’ve got to know who’s on the bus,” said Odsen. “You’ve got to be properly ticketed in order to be covered by the insurance.” At the same time, Odsen said Greyhound, just as is the case with airlines and passenger trains, is in the business of selling tickets. He said Greyhound will take part in any transportation meeting hosted by the province and will be open to talking about transit options for the area.

Safe homes The report also recommended that “safe homes” be established at strategic locations along Hwy16, preferably within visual range of the highway. Provincial child and family development ministry of-

Detection network One recommendation suggested public sector workers traveling Hwy16 on business be enlisted to act as a “detection network.” Using cellphones, they’d report the locations of female hitchhikers. Darryl Walker, the president of the BC Government Service and Employees’ Union (BCGEU), says the union, which was a sponsor of the 2006 symposium, was ready to follow up on the recommendations, including the detection network. “We have union members on the road, around the clock, every day of the year. Had the government moved this proposal forward, the BCGEU and its members would have done what they could to establish a system to spot and keep track of hitchhikers in the region,” said Walker. “This would not making hitchhiking safe, but it would provide an extra element of protection,” said Walker. “We were anticipating that there would be follow up to work with the government ... that they would be taking the lead on this one,” he said. “We expected that we would continue to work with them, but we haven’t really had any contact on this particular issue with the government for sometime now.”

Price drop MORE THAN a few people have been emitting silent cheers this last while in observing the gradual reduction in the price of gas when they’re out and about in their vehicles. It’s at a level not seen for more than a year and, depending upon where and how you shop or how you buy your gas, there’s a welcome further reduction to be had as well. If you’re one of those people you might also be one of those wondering what the price of gas would be if not for the provincial government’s carbon tax (a punishment aimed at the middle class if there ever was one). That’s because despite the best efforts of activist governments and environmental groups, the focus for a great many people remains on the cost of living and not so much on greenhouse gas reduction, etc. And how could it not. Paycheques for many this month are lighter thanks to increases in government payroll taxes tied to medical plans, employment insurance and the like. Wage increases for many not in the public sector remain elusive. And it’s pretty much impossible to find that Canadian staple of a box of macaroni and cheese for anything less than a dollar. Saving the environment, a funny kind of phrase when you think about it, is supposed to be everybody’s business. But governments and others need to be aware there needs to be a cost versus benefits balance or risk losing public support. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

s I fastened my seatbelt, a young woman walked across Save-onFood’s parking lot straight toward my pickup, holding her left hand palm up before her. I assessed her approach and locked my driver door. Maybe 18 years or slightly older, she was well enough dressed appropriate to the 42°F weather, with a fresh face and natural rosiness to her chipmunk cheeks. Except for her lack of makeup and hangdog demeanour, she could have blended into any knot of young women around town. She tapped on my window. Her palm displayed perhaps 85 cents in coins. I rolled the window down several inches. “Can you help me?” she said in a dull tone. “I’m desperate.” My thoughts raced. What might her reaction be if I refused her request? Cautiously I asked, “Why are you desperate?” “I need $25 to buy a phone so I can keep in contact with my family.” Only $25?! Keeping in touch with family is commendable, a comfort to her parents, but at her age, does




This panhandler wanted $25

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI she need to be in constant touch with family as though her umbilical cord had never been cut? “Sorry,” I said, “ I don’t have $25.” But I was thinking, What gall! To expect $25 from a stranger. And why buy a phone when she could talk all day for fifty cents on a payphone? And even if she was given $25, how would she pay for the calls? I have never owned a cell phone, but so far as I know, calls are not included in the cost of a cell phone. Without comment or apparent rancour at my refusal, she turned and walked to the nearest car where a young


I gave her two dollars and watched her meet a man who had been waiting outside the store’s entrance. Together they proceeded directly to the beer and wine store on the corner of Lakelse and Emerson. Under British Columbia’s Safe Streets Act, a panhandler can be arrested and fined $86 for soliciting anyone “in a captive audience situation”. A captive audience situation generally refers to when a person has no choice but to attend/stand in a particular location. Therefore, it is illegal to solicit people who are waiting at a bus stop/taxi stand, riding on or getting off a bus, waiting to use or using a bank machine, waiting to use or using a public toilet, getting in or out of a vehicle (such as in a parking lot). Fortunately for me, after my morning grocery shopping when many items I routinely use were on sale, my wallet no longer contained anywhere near enough cash to satisfy this panhandler’s demand. If I had forked over money, I would only have aided and abetted her in her life of petty crime.

mother was transferring her baby from a loaded grocery cart into her SUV. The mother didn’t pause or make eye contact, just shook her head and ducked into her car to buckle her child’s seatbelt harness. The panhandler headed off toward Lakelse Avenue from whence she had come. What does today’s society deem a necessity? Apparently among the younger generation, a cell phone takes priority above all else except a car, an iPod, and a computer. You see them sitting on a concrete ledge even in chilly temperatures, texting with the concentration of an explosives expert dismantling a roadside bomb.

She, too, was well dressed in a clean white ski jacket.

The Mail Bag Make friends with police

contributed PHOTO

Adam Langegger, 12, and son of letter writer Michael Langegger, is shown here with one of the many char he has caught on the Kalum River.

Fish ban plan an elitist ploy Dear Sir: I recently read two articles in your paper about a proposal to remove trout and char retention opportunities throughout the entire Skeena region. Such a proposal and the manner in which it was brought forward should be of concern to all residents, not just


in the Skeena region. It aims to ban every man, woman or child from being able to catch and keep a trout or char on all Skeena streams. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations propose allowing “catch and release” only, effectively excluding those who traditionally fish

for food as well as the ability of father and son to take home the odd trout or char. What you may not know is that some commercial angling guides and elite-minded anglers continuously lobby the ministry to strip common residents of their heritage fishing rights based on false

conservation concerns. They are quick to accolade the ministry for doing the right thing all under the flag of conservation as long as it does not hinder them. Yet meanwhile back on the water these same individuals are sinking their barbless hooks deep and unabated into the very same fish they

claim need protection. Catch and release is by no means an effective conservation answer, and to say that fish are not harmed in a catch and release only fishery is clearly false and misleading. A large number of fish that get hooked and played succumb to their injuries.

Dear Sir: As we all start a new year let us all resolve to build a better relationship with our police forces as there are also many police officers trying very hard to do the same with us in the civilian world. Of late a lot of events have been exposed and magnified by social media and not all have been complimentary. I do genuinely believe that a good relationship is possible between police and the people they serve. If we feed a good relationship then a good relationship is returned but it does take some continual work to achieve it. The first police officer to see you wave a friendly wave may be taken aback a bit but the next friendly wave they see will start to take effect, we all have to work at it. When you pass a police officer say a friendly ‘thanks.’ They may wonder at the first time they hear you but the next time you will probably receive a smile back, keep the trend up and you are sure to make them feel just a bit better each time in their quest to maintain law and order for all of us. I recently used mass transit in Vancouver and was surprised to hear passengers say a cheery ‘thank you’ as they exited the bus, this trend of good manners was sure to lighten the bus driver’s day just as it would to any person. It is never too late or too early to improve a relationship, thank you. Bill Braam, Terrace, BC

Quiet progress on energy savings front

ark Twain once joked that everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it. Replace “weather” with “climate” and his argument may no longer hold, and to some degree, did not even in his own time. Solid science has revealed that our long-term climate warming really began with the transition of human economies from wood to coal, well before Twain was even born. The later transition to oil, combined with the accelerated growth of the human population, simply upped the pace. Now, despite the noisy rhetoric pretending there is still some doubt about anthropogenic (human-caused) climatic warming, more and more North Americans (government, corporate and individual) are actively doing something about it (Canada’s federal Conservative government being a notable exception with its continued boosterism for all things oil and gas—no surprise there). Terrace, too, is quietly joining the process, as we shall see.

In the United States, long a holdout against organized action to combat climate change, a federal court recently backed the Environmental Protection Agency against legal challenges that would have prevented the agency from mandating mileage standards for new vehicles and regulating power plant emissions. Even Texas has a renewable energy program enabling huge amounts of wind generation capacity and improving transmission capacity to deliver the power. Texas??! Why not? Basic technology for solar energy is improving rapidly. Photovoltaic developers have improved efficiency to where prices have begun to reach grid parity, particularly in developing countries such as India, where “small is beautiful” distributed generation projects (rooftop solar, for example) lessen the need for extended transmission grids. Big business, too, is getting with the program. IBM Corporation recently surveyed 130 businesses whose revenues are $1 billion and up about energy effi-

g u e s t c o mm e n t

AL LEHMANN ciency. All were involved in “selection of technology to support environmental, real estate and/ or sustainable asset management initiatives,” some more successful than others. Successful companies involved executive management throughout, as well as teams for planning and execution. “Achiever” companies rank sustainability as a top-five priority within real estate and facilities’ concerns.

So what’s happening here? In 2007, provincial legislation (Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act) called for reducing the province’s greenhouse gas emissions at least 33 per cent below 2007 levels by 2020 and by 80 per cent by 2050. BC Hydro has sponsored CEEP, the Community Energy and Emissions Planning framework to help local governments formulate and implement their own planning. Local representatives and interested citizens participated in a Jan. 16 preparatory webinar with CEEP planners, and on Jan. 23 met locally to try to develop Terrace’s own version of an energy and emissions plan. Ultimately, any plan would require adoption by city council and would include a report to BC Hydro, all aiming to save electricity, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and save money. Cash savings is particularly appealing. Few citizens welcome the heavy hand of regulation, but if it can be shown that plan co-operation results in tangible financial and quality of life ben-

efits, we are more likely to buy in. Given that Terrace citizens spend about $3,000 per person per year on energy, most of which money leaves the community, wouldn’t it make sense to create plans allowing us to keep progressively more of that money at home? Planning models approach the problem on numerous fronts: how we use energy for mobility fuels and for heating and appliances in our homes and buildings, how we process and utilize waste, and how we organize our community with respect to occupation density and infrastructure distribution. The planning outline is comprehensive, well-organized, and already based on Terrace data provided in our recent OCP, including calculators for potential energy savings. Terrace is quietly and commendably preparing to co-operate with other British Columbians to combat unwanted climate change. To steal a phrase from our local recycling entrepreneurs, let’s do our part. Al Lehmann is a retired teacher living in Terrace, BC.

About our letters

Catch and release ignores local anglers Annually thousands of fish are mortally wounded being released belly up as a result of catch and release, regardless of angling method used. What a shameful waste! Unfortunately, to the elitists and guide companies who continuously lobby government to exclude resident rights, it’s all about numbers not conservation. Trout and char within the Skeena region are defined by the ministry as being within a routine management zone. By definition this means that these stocks are not of conservation concern as some wrongfully tout. As such, removing conservative size and retention limits already in place only serves to segregate and discriminate against the

Mike Langegger traditional resident angler. Sensibly and ethically, if scientific, research data is sufficient to support such a heavy handed direction to address a conservation concern, then catch and release needs to be banned as well. If a fishery is deemed

unable to provide a retention opportunity as a result of a conservation concern, then it too can’t support mortalities resulting from catch and release. For the ministry to ban any retention opportunity under the guise of conservation or precautionary approach, and not catch and release mortalities should be considered as a prejudice and hypocritical action. The mandate of fisheries is to manage fish stocks based on sound scientific knowledge. A complete trout and char retention ban arrived at from biased anecdotal evidence and self serving hearsay is clearly a failure of this mandate. Our fisheries should be managed to provide sustainable ac-

cess to this public resource for generations to enjoy. The new direction of the fisheries branch is to base decisions on biased anecdotal claims to serve non-resident and minority angling interests, not conservation. As a public taxpayer of a generations old coastal angling family, I’ve today lost confidence in how the ministry’s regional office manages our fisheries and public angling opportunities. I can’t help but feel segregated and discriminated against by the very ministry entrusted to represent the best interest of public and their opportunities revolving around this common property resource.

Employers urged to hire apprentices EMPLOYERS who need skilled trades to operate are being urged to hire apprentices to ensure there are eventually enough journeymen to meet the demands of a growing and changing economy. And the need for apprentices in the northwest who will eventually earn trades certifications will increase as larger industrial projects begin to take shape, said Kevin Evans, the chief executive officer of the Industry Training Authority, the provincial agency which helps finance trades training, while on a visit to Terrace last week. Only one in five employers now hire apprentices, noted Evans. “Employers like to hire journeypeople but we need to do more to engage employers to take on apprentices,” he said. Evans and other Industry Training Authority officials hosted a Jan. 24 event in Terrace to recognize more than 30 local employers who have taken on apprentices. Another 120 local employers will also receive a recognition certificate from the authority. The training authority spends more than

Rural suite wanted

CITY COUNCIL has been asked to allow a standalone suite on property zoned rural residential. Current zoning limits secondary suites to within a principal residence but a staff memo to council says that for large rural properties “there seems to be few, if any reasons to confine a suite within the owner’s principal residence.” A zoning amendment “will possibly provide an incentive for the creation of more affordable rental units in the community, as well as to allow seniors [to] age in place.” Council considered the request Jan. 28. A9

Lenarduzzi was a guest speaker. $100 million on trades training programs in the province. In the northwest that has translated into just over $1.6 million being provided for trades students at Northwest Community College for the fiscal year ending March 31. That money acted as a subsidy to help lower tuition costs for students, noted Evans. “Our support for the college is alive and kicking,” he said. Evans added that it is important to have an institution such as Northwest Community College positioned

to provide the kind of training needed as the regional economy begins to improve. Statistics provided by the authority show the money was provided to 11 programs ranging from automotive service technician to heavy equipment training to welding. Those programs covered 534 students. The authority also provided just under $500,000 through another provincial program for students who are either not EI eligible or are considered underemployed. It’s used to cover the costs of their

trades training plus providing more services such as child care, a living allowance or accommodation. The authority’s trades spending this year at the college matches about what it was the year before. But the additional $500,000 for student support provided this year is a new feature, said Evans. “We’re also looking forward to the next fiscal year and we don’t anticipate doing anything less,” he said of planned spending by the training authority at the college.

Driver runs over girl’s foot

Seen this man? THE NEW Hazelton RCMP detachment is continuing its investigation into the Dec. 24, 2012 suspicious incident involving a teenage hitchhiker near Kispiox, B.C. by releasing a composite sketch of the male suspect driver. On Dec. 24, 2012, at approximately 12:30 pm, a young female was hitchhiking in the Kispiox area when she was picked up by a male driving a red minivan. After some brief conversation, the female became very uncomfortable with the driver and requested that he stop the vehicle. The driver, however, ignored her plea and continued driving in the opposite direction from her intended destination. The female became fearful for her safety and when the driver slowed to cross a bridge, she jumped from the window of the vehicle. The male did not stop. He was last seen in the Hagwilget area on Highway 62, driving toward Highway 16. The driver is described as a Caucasian male, heavy set, approximately 40 to 50 years of age. He has grey hair and was wearing dark brown glasses and a jean jacket. Anyone with information in regards to this investigation is asked to contact Cst. Kim or Sgt. Pelley at the New Hazleton RCMP Detachment (250) 842-5244. If you would like to remain anonymous please call CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

POLICE ARE asking for the public’s assistance in looking for a driver that ran over the foot of a 10-year-old girl then fled the scene. At approximately 6 p.m. Jan. 22 a woman and her daughter were crossing Kenney St when a truck drove into their path. The mother screamed at her daughter to look out but the truck drove over the foot of the girl, report police. The truck then swerved, drove up onto the sidewalk, and sped away not stopping. An ambulance took the girl to Mills Memorial hospital where she was checked out. The girl’s injuries were fortunately minor in nature, police said. Pedestrians and drivers can take steps to increase public safety,

added police. They said drivers need to slow down and pay attention at all times, especially when approaching pedestrian crossings and at night and that pedestrians need to be aware of approaching traffic and assume that they have not been seen. Choice of clothing is also very important at night. Police advise people to wear at a minimum bright colours, and ideally reflective material. “Even a small amount of reflection on jackets or shoes can really light up at night and make a person visible,” said Cst Angela Rabut of the local RCMP detachment. The driver of the truck is described as wearing a dark navy blue light jacket, Caucasian, 30s, light co-

loured hair with a small ponytail, squinty eyes, and distinctive hands. The vehicle was a small red compact pickup truck, possibly a Nissan.

If you have information contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)6387400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-

Local dancers to perform in Swan Lake SEVERAL LOCAL dancers will get a chance to perform in one of the most famous ballets when it comes to town in February. Ballet Jorgen, who was here several years ago to perform Cinderella, returns Feb. 8 to put on Swan Lake as part of its 25th anniversary tour. Twelve dancers from Artists in Motion dance studio are being chosen for small parts in the performance based on their ages, size (for costumes) and ability. They will do a 90 minute choreography session, costumes, participate in the stage rehearsal and the performance. In addition, a photography workshop and local dance classes will be offered. “The ballet company has been so wonderful to deal with,” says Lisa McLeod, president of the Terrace Concert Society, which is presenting the ballet. “I am finding it very educational to see how many people that it takes to make this happen.” Ballet Jorgen is travelling with complete sets, costumes and 29 people, she added, saying  that Ballet Jorgen is hardworking and willing to undertake tasks required for touring large  and small communities, thereby making ballet more accessible for everyone.

Gryphon Trio plays here A trio known as one of the finest chamber ensembles in the world is coming to town. Violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon, cellist Roman Borys and pianist James Parker are the Gryphon Trio and the resident ensemble at the University of Toronto. The trio has recorded four CDs and in 2011, won its second Juno award for Classical Album of the Year for the recording of Beethoven’s “Ghost” Piano Trio, Op.70 No.1. Patipatanakoon is a laureate of Belgium’s Queen Elizabeth International Violin Competition and one of Canada’s most respected

violinists. She is an assistant professor in violin at the University of Toronto (U of T). Borys studied cello with Janos Starker at Indiana University and Aldo Parisot at Yale University. He also teaches at U of T, is artistic director of the Ottawa Chamber Music Society, and producer for the Gryphon Trio. Parker is a graduate of the University of BC, the Juilliard School and has made frequent appearances on CBC, Bravo, and many stations around the world.

alice and Harry check into a hotel to spice up their sex life after 25 years of marriage in the Terrace Little Theatre’s dinner theatre production of Sexy Laundry.

TLT airs its Sexy Laundry COUPLES WHO have been married 25 years, or more, and those who like a good laugh with a bit of a tearjerker included will be able to relate to Terrace Little Theatre’s dinner theatre production, debuting on Valentine’s Day. First time director Alan Weston chose the play after seeing a poster about it while in Prince George. The title caught his eye: Sexy Laundry. TLT didn’t have anyone to direct a dinner theatre last year so Weston thought he should step up and direct for his first time. “I think the title says it,” said Weston. Sexy Laundry is a very funny play but also has serious moments that will move the audience. People married more than 25 years can relate to it, he said.

“I still get misty eyes,” said stage manager Julie Jacobs, adding that’s even though she’s seen the play rehearsals multiple times. Weston always had actors Cheryl Spencer and John Dafoe in mind for the play. And they’re definitely the best for the roles considering their commitment to the characters and the play, he said. In early rehearsals, often actors will be carrying the script with them and referring to it a lot, but not Spencer and Dafoe. “That didn’t happen even once. Not even at first,” Weston said. The play, by Michele Riml, is about a married middle-age couple, Alice and Henry, who have been married for 25 years and find their relationship waning. Alice decides to spice up their stale

relationship by booking them into a posh hotel to revive their sex life. Spencer says some parts of the character are like her. Overall, it’s a fun role whether it’s the funny parts or the serious parts. Dafoe says the fun is also is working with a small group – he and Spencer are the only characters. They started rehearsals with not even a bed to lay on; only two upside down garbage cans to take the place of the bed, which required some imagination.

Food bank numbers drop again the terrace Churches Food Bank was well-stocked for Christmas, courtesy of the community, including one boy who asked for items for the food bank rather than presents for his birthday. “We had a good January with our numbers slightly higher than December, but

lower then January 2012 by 50 bags, which is positive,” says food bank president John Wiebenga. “It’s surprising that the numbers are low. They’re down and it’s been a trend which is great.” Many businesses and individuals donated very generously and found various ways

to collect funds or food. “One young boy named Seth, who had his seventh birthday asked his friends to bring food instead of gifts.  Wow.” said Wiebenga. “A couple of hundred pounds of food was collected as well as some cash. What a Christmas gift.”

This year once again, many ladies from different churches in the community spent the last two months knitting or crocheting warm hats, mitts and scarves, which were handed out to food bank clients, said Wiebenga. There are even some items left to hand out at February’s food bank.

Ban affects the public angler “The basis of support provided by your ministry for non-retention of trout and char is that of speculation, anecdotal evidence, and scientific data from other jurisdictions that does not accurately reflect trout and char populations in our region,” it reads. “Anecdotal claims

should be the basis of where further science and data is required. It must not become the foundation your ministry bases decisions on.” The letter also questions restricting resident anglers in order to offset possible damage caused by industrial and commercial exploits.

“We strongly suggest looking at the habitat abuser, not the historic public angling user,” reads the letter. “How does restricting resident angling opportunities as a result of projected industrial and commercial exploitation in the Skeena address the real issue at hand?”

With regards to the blanket aspect of the proposal, NWF&WCA says a stream with little angling pressure cannot be treated in the same manner as one in a residential area, and that if there are areas believed to be in jeopardy, the focus should be on habitat restoration and aug-

mentation. If the ministry is going to ban keeping fish for conservation reasons, the ban “must be applied in conjunction with a recovery plan, proper science, enforcement, and funding commitment to follow through,” said NWF&WCA.

GATEWAY perspectives

Partners for the long term For decades, respect has been fundamental to Enbridge’s communication with Aboriginal groups across Canada. Among other considerations, that means developing sensitivity and an understanding of the values and issues important to them. As discussion about Gateway has evolved and progressed with Aboriginal communities in B.C., one thing groups have told us, in unequivocal terms, is that they wanted meaningful, long-term involvement in the labour force. That’s why we established a $3 million Gateway Education and Training Fund. This is an initiative for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities that’s not dependent, in any way, upon Gateway approval. This fund supports training initiatives based in the pipeline, construction, and energy sectors. This isn’t training for the sake of training; it’s focused squarely on employment outcomes. And Enbridge is already connecting industry and community to help create career opportunities in B.C. We’ve already co-funded training programs for surveyors and ironworkers. We’re purchasing seats in existing trades programs, and partnering with provincial and federal bodies to help develop skilled tradespeople in the areas of heavy equipment operation, pipefitting, welding, and construction craft labouring. We’ve also co-ordinated the


first of many “workforce connections” workshops, bringing together representatives of Gateway equity First Nations and companies with labourforce needs for some meaningful employment discussion.

The Cohen commission report was released the middle of last year but recommendations have yet to translate into revised fisheries management policies. “Fish is still not there and that’s one of the components that must be addressed in the final treaty. It will be a major topic in our final negotiations,” said Wesley.

Being “coachable” key to success To hear Terrace-native Cam Hundal tell it, his experiences as an up-and-coming soccer player in Victoria and the Lower Mainland have had a lot to do with luck. And while it was certainly lucky that the first team he approached to practise with in his new home of Surrey just happened to be one of the best teams in the country – it also took guts and confidence to approach the team in the first place. He was 14 and had just moved to Surrey from Terrace to attend a soccer training academy in Burnaby. “I walked up to a pitch one day and asked a coach if I could train,” he said. “Luckily he let me train. I didn’t know who he was or who the team was.” The team was Surrey United and the coach of the team, Spiro Pegios, let Hundal assist him for the next two training sessions, passing the ball and acting as extra support on the sidelines and on the field. “The coach saw that I had some skill, even though I didn’t have much knowledge of the game, so he let me train with them for about four months. I wasn’t allowed to play in games though because I wasn’t signed,” said Hundal. But then he had his “Rudy” moment. One day, near the end

of the season in February, he got a chance to play for about 15 minutes in an exhibition game. “I scored a goal,” he said. “That was the turning point. I got an email a few weeks later that said I’d been selected for next year’s [U16] team.” Eventually he figured out who was on the team with him, including seven provincial players. “Just the best players,” he said. “We ended up winning provincials, and then winning nationals. That was really lucky.” He played another year with Surrey United’s U17 team, and the following year was selected to play for the Whitecaps U18 prospects. Now 20, he’s in the second year of his scholarship at the University of Victoria (his school team, the Vikes, made it to the championships last year and Hundal was the recipient of a number of year-end awards including rookie of the year). He also plays for the Whitecaps U23 team. School league runs from August through April, and Whitecaps starts right away when school season is done, so that means soccer all year round. And with four two-hour practises and one or two games a week, it’s a huge commitment – especially when you factor in

full-time classes in a Kinesiology degree. But that’s what Hundal wanted when he moved to pursue his dream, and he doesn’t have plans to stop anytime soon. “I can’t even tell you what’s going to happen in the next year,” he said. He would welcome playing for the Whitecaps’ reserve team or giving it a shot in Europe if he could get a proper trial. “School’s always important, because in the long run your degree is always going to be there, but right now I think it’s kind of crucial that I focus on my soccer. This is the age where you make it, or don’t. So I’m focussing on soccer right now and seeing what I can do with it.” He says he wouldn’t be where he is now without the trust and support of his parents and his coach, Nick Kollias, who he’s known since he was in kindergarten. “If there’s one thing I can remember about playing here, I remember his clinics and everything he would stress,” he said, noting that they were always simple things, like how to dribble and how to pass with the side of your foot, but that’s what soccer is about. “And he really stressed communication. The one thing he told me before I left was make sure you’re coachable – listen to everything they say,

they’re always right. And I instilled that into my brain, I screwed it in. Whenever I would get criticism, I just took it. And coaches really notice that, it’s the first thing they notice.” For young players looking to move south to pursue soccer, Hundal says he would give them the same advice. “You’ve got to be able to listen to criticism, because you’re going to get a lot of it. The level raises once you move to a big city.” It’s not always easy to take criticism, especially if you don’t agree with it. “A million times I wanted to say something back, but you suck it up and just take it. And now I’m at the point where I’d rather hear criticism than encouragement or praise because it’s the criticism that you can look at and say, this is what I need to work on.” It’s also important to realize what a huge commitment it is to relocate. “It’s hard. I had the attitude and confidence to do it – when I wanted to move, I knew that it was the only thing I wanted to do, and I knew if I did it I’d be fully committed,” he said, noting that its a big financial commitment for a family. “I knew when I moved that I couldn’t screw it up because it was a pretty big deal.”

Peak season for Terrace Peaks gymnasts Terrace residents are flipping out for gymnastics – at least, that’s the way it seems to the coaches and staff of the Terrace Peaks gymnastics club, who have witnessed higher-than-normal turnout this year and have had to add extra classes to keep up with the demand. The club, located right beside the Thornhill Community Centre, offers a wide variety of programming for kids and adults of all ages and skill levels. Moms can bring their babies and toddlers during the day, teens and adults can join in a recreational class in the evening to tone up, work on their balance, or just have fun, and there are new class options for gymnasts of a higher-skill level who aren’t necessarily interested in competing. Anna Killen PHOTO And then, of course, there are Members of the Terrace Peaks support their teammates at a mock- the competition-level gymnasts, who are in the midst of prepmeet on Friday, Jan. 26.

ping for competition season, getting ready to travel to Quesnel to compete in the Gold Pan Invitational at the beginning of February. Staff say there is potentially a wide range of reasons why the club is busier now than before – word of mouth, new coaches, people moving here for work, population growth, and how organized the club has been over the last year. Plus, last year’s much-publicized break-in might have been publicity in disguise because it reminded the community what an asset the club is. As far as new programs go, one is called Interclub, which offers higher skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Gymnasts have the opportunity to learn routines and skills that competitive gymnasts learn without the pressure and expense of competition – but they can demonstrate

their skills during the local competition if they choose. “We needed something to offer the children who grew out of CANGYM (6-12 years old) and are more advanced in their skills. They were just sort of outgrowing the gym before,” said coach Boby Wagner. “It’s also great for those who decide competition isn’t for them but don’t want to leave the club.” Today, Jan. 30, marks the first day of Session 2, and the club has plenty in store for the next little while. On Feb. 8, the club hosts its Pro-D Day camp for kids who want to move around on their day off. National Gymnastics Week is Feb. 11 – 17, and the club is encouraging gymnastics-lovers to wear red or pink to class to show their love for the sport. And the annual Flip-a-Thon fundraiser from 2 – 3 p.m. on Feb. 16.

Here’s Terrace Bantam Female Rep captain Sage Desjardins, middle, during the Jan. 12 game against Kitimat. Terrace won the game 7-5. Desjardins is just one of seven Terrace players who made the U16 North Zone team.

Potential for two Coy Cup wild card spots There might still be hockey left for two CIHL teams, given the Smithers Steelheads’ decision to skip this year’s Coy Cup, and the hosting Kitimat Ice Demons automatically qualifying for Coy Cup regardless of their playoff performance. After playoffs, any of these “possible” spots that come available will be filled by a selection of the non-playoff qualifying team with the highest number of regular season points, followed by the next highest, said a notice on the CIHL’s website. First-ranked team Smithers has declined to participate this year citing the fact that there are no non-CIHL teams participating. The tournament will be held in Kitimat during the week of March 12 – 16.


t was early in March, said Mike. He and Fred launched at Exchamsiks then, and instead of powering downstream and across the Skeena to the Gitnadoix, as they regularly did, they jetted upstream. Winter keeps an icy grip on the river valleys on the Northern side of the Skeena. The snow atop the avalanche chutes hadn’t begun to crumble and rumble down to the valley floor. Any melt was miniscule. In high water, passage through the rock garden in the lower river is possible – in slow, low, glass-clear winter water it’s not. Mike cut the ignition and let the inflatable belly up against a boulder. He pulled down on the motor and the prop came free of the water. He and Fred slid over the side. Waist deep in water, they wrenched the craft over the rockery. In a few minutes they were off again. Cold air stung their faces. The whine of the engine supplanted the nearly silent rush of the river in the narrow valley. There are never many steelhead. In winter rivers, there are fewer still. In those cold rivers finding fish is special because of that scarcity. The experience is intensified by the places winter steelhead inhabit – spots at the heart of vivid, frozen landscapes. Finding winter fish is an event on par with spotting a lone wolf, or the first lustrous black bear of spring. The men checked out some likely spots with no success. They shot some pictures

Terrace girls make the cut Twelve players from the Bantam Female Kermode Rep team in Terrace participated in the U16 camp in Williams Lake on Jan. 5 and 6 – and more than half of them made the final roster for the U16 BC Cup North Zone team. The camp attracted female players between the ages of 13 and 14 from all over the north, stretching from as far west as Prince Rupert to as far east as 100 Mile House and as far north as Fort St. John, for a total of 50 players. “The Terrace players all had an excellent camp and represented our team respectfully with their hard work and skills,” said coach Mario Desjardins. Seven players made the final roster of 18 skaters and two goalies.

Congratulations to Sage Desjardins, Deborah Wraight, Taylor Beck, Marissa Nichol, Hunter Mosher, Caitlyn Ray and Kelsey Roberts, said Desjardins. These seven players will represent the North Zone along with 13 other teammates in the U16 BC Cup tournament hosted in Duncan, B.C. April 4 – 7. They will then be re-evaluated by BC Hockey’s High Performance Evaluation team to prepare them for BC Hockey U18 high performance invite-only camp next year. Five other players from the Terrace team also had an excellent camp: Cassie Penfold, Cassidy Broughton, Meghan Pritchett, Casey Norris and Katerina Samaras, all proved they are not far from

making the top 20 in the north with their strong effort in the fitness testing and on ice play. The Terrace Bantam Female Reps have been having a fantastic 2012/2013 season, going into the Christmas break with a record of 19 wins, 10 loses and 5 ties. They’ve competed in five tournaments so far, finishing first once, second twice and third once. The team heads to Surrey this weekend, Feb. 1 – 3, where they’ll play Prince George, Abbotsford and Surrey A2 to start. Then they’ll hop over to the second pool, where they’re hoping to meet up with the Surrey A1 team which has jumped into first place in the Lower Mainland female league ahead of North Shore Winter Club.

Mike soon convinced themselves there were no fish there. And so it went all the way to the Rock Garden. A few years later, Fred had a similar experience on the Kitimat River when he and Greg Knox donned their diving gear and swam a long stretch of the river to do an inventory of the cutthroat. In higher flows more swimmers would’ve been required to do adequate count, but Greg and Fred were dealing with low flows. To their surprise, they saw nothing for miles. At their predetermined take out, the Second Washout, it seemed that there were cutthroat everywhere. As they climbed out of the water, a fisherman drove up and climbed out of his car. He asked Greg and Fred what they were doing. When he was told they were counting cutthroat, the fisherman ventured that they must have see a lot of trout in the pool before them. He knew this because he’d killed quite a few there. One of the best spots in the river, he said. Like a lot of fishers he was probably drawn to the place because it’s next to the road. Like most casual fishers, he can be forgiven for thinking that some of the barren runs Fred and Greg swam earlier contained some fish, and that lots of runs downstream are as good as the Washout, and that many more have decent number of trout. Sadly, he’s dead wrong. Continued next week...
