Ella Williams holds her placard at the Idle No More protest in George Little Park in Terrace Jan. 28. She was one of about 65 to 70 people who attended to hear speakers and get up on the band shell stage if they had anything to say for themselves. She said she attended the joint review panel hearings in Kitimat and Smithers and the no tankers rally. The words near the bottom of her placard “Am Gi Skot Wis Semp” is what she calls simple Gitxsan, which is easier to pronounce properly and if you can read it, you can read Gitxsan, she said. Its meaning is the same as the words below it: “Enough what you people are doing.”




TERRACE - The Idle No More protests took centre stage at George Little Park as speakers and those who came out stood up to make their voices heard Jan. 28. About 65 or 70 people braved the falling snow and chilly temperatures for the event. A fire pit provided some warmth and a gathering place for drummers, who played some before the speakers began. Martin Adams said First Nations all over the world see themselves in the same way: to take care of the gifts the Creator has given them. Speaking on behalf of the instructors at Northwest Community College, Rocque Berthiaume said Idle No More reminded him of the time in the 1980s when the government was working on the constitution and First Nations were left out until the people spoke up so parliament would listen. “..When the people spoke up, the politicians had to listen,” he said. Bill C-45, referred to as the omnibus bill, is a great big bill that wants to take a lot of power and rights away from the First Nations, he said. The people are not getting the recognition they deserve and that’s what parliament has to hear, he said. Lillian Moyer, who said she organized the Idle No More event in Telegraph Creek, took the stage with a placard addressed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. In 2005, when Shell wanted to drill in the Klappan, the people held a sit-in for nine months, she said. “We did it to protect our land,” she said. The people’s actions made the company back down and the politicians listen, but that was then. “The way the government works today, they got no ears to hear what we have to say,” said Moyer. Her arrests in 2005 and 2006 were for doing exactly what people were doing at the park for Idle No More: standing up for their rights, she said, adding the people need to take their power back. “...I strongly believe Idle No More has opened everyone’s eyes,” she said. “Young people have a lot of work ahead of you. Go for it.”

Port expansion passes environmental review By Shaun Thomas

The Northern connector

PRINCE RUPERT - After just five years of operation, Fairview Terminal is ready to grow. On Jan. 23 federal Environment Minister Peter Kent approved the environmental assessment of the Phase 2 expansion of the terminal, which would take it from its initial design capacity of 500,000 TEUs to 2 million TEUs. The decision came following months of public comment and a review of the Comprehensive Study Report prepared by the Prince Rupert Port Authority and CN Rail. “This is a very important announcement and represents a vital next step in our journey toward Phase 2 of Fairview Terminal,” said Michael Gurney, manager of corporate communication for the Prince Rupert Port Authority. “It is one milestone of many to come... The work of planning and engineering for Phase 2 continues, and the next major milestone will be a decision by Maher Ter-

minals, the commercial operator of the terminal, to proceed with the construction of Phase 2.” For its part CN said the impact of this announcement goes well beyond the north coast. “CN is pleased to work with its partner, the Port of Prince Rupert, to advance the growth of one of the fastest growing ports in North America.” “This terminal expansion is good news for the Port, CN and all Canadians as we continue to fulfill our role as a true supply chain enabler and backbone of the economy,” said CN’s senior manager of public and government affairs Warren Chandler in a statement. Prince Rupert mayor Jack Mussallem said he was happy to hear about the approval given the economic impact port growth can have on the community. “It is good for the port and it is good for the City in terms of bringing additional jobs to the community.” “It’s good news in terms of an overall phased development,

and when it is done in a phased manner it is easier for people to adjust and for companies to find workers,” he said. The mayor added that spin-offs from construction and operations thereafter are wide reaching. “It is not just the employees at the Longshore Hall or at Maher Terminals, it’s the ships coming and going,” said they mayor. “Last year there were 409 ship visits through the port, and each of those requires pilots and other workers,” continued Mussallem. Port corporation offricial Gurney said there is no set time frame for Phase 2, as the decision is up to Maher Terminals to proceed. Maher Terminals did not immediately return calls for comment, but Gurney did note that the need may not yet exist for expansion despite the terminal exceeding its 500,000 TEU design capacity last year. “Through operation efficiencies achieved by the design of the terminal and the

oast Mountains Board of Education

workforce, the actual capacity of Fairview Terminal is closer to 750,000 TEUs,” he said. “We do believe that there is the potential for capacity to increase further... Even with the existing footprint, the terminal can handle more than it was designed for.” Expansion of the terminal will take place in two phases, with the first moving the terminal closer to town. Once complete, Fairview would be able to handle 10 vessels per week and six train movements – three inbound and three outbound – per day. The second phase of expansion would move the terminal further south and accommodate up to 14 vessels per week and 10 train movements per day. Between the two phases, the project calls

New program aiming to keep workers in Prince Rupert By Quinn Bender


PRINCE RUPERT School District No. 52 and Northwest Community College have partnered with Ridley Terminals (RTI) to offer two new high school trades programs for the purpose of keeping young job seekers at home where their skills are needed. The five-year Coastal Pathways Partnership will offer a millwright foundations program and industrial electrical foundations program to senior high school students in the next school year. Northwest Community College will provide instructors, with the School District donating classroom space and

workshops. An investment of $350,000 will go toward training-equipment costs, to which RTI has committed $150,000 in matching funds, and has sent out letters to other industry players for contributions. Ridley Terminals led the founding of the partnership after assessing that 45 per cent of its workforce will retire in the next 15 years, when the region is expected to experience unprecedented growth. “The number of resumes that are coming for our skilled jobs are decreasing and decreasing every year,” said Michelle Bryant, RTI’s corporate affairs manager. “These two [trades] were chosen because of the lack of experienced

skilled millwrights and electricians in the area. Hopefully, as demand grows, as capital grows, we can handle the heavy duty mechanic [training] as well.” Representatives from RTI, the school district and NWCC signed the partnership agreement before a Charles Hays Secondary in front of a student audience. “The long-term goal of the school district is to ensure each student successfully completes their educational program with a sense of hope, purpose and control,” said School District No. 52 Board Chair, Tina Last. “This partnership opens up exciting new opportunities for our students to find highpaying trades jobs in our

Prince Rupert’s

region.” Leaders from municipal and provincial government, as well as First Nations, were in attendance to encourage students to explore the new opportunity. North Coast MLA Gary Coons called it an “historic” agreement when industry takes a leading role in an education initiative then challenges others to follow suit. “In the last few months we’ve heard of sending delegations to California and Ireland looking for skilled workers… I have to acknowledge that Ridley has really stepped up to the plate… for the betterment of our communities.” Bryant says RTI has never tapped into

the foreign labour market, but the company has looked to the lower mainland for skilled tradesmen and managers. But even that is not netting the permanent staff they require. “This [partnership] is about capacity building, and allowing our local people to stay in the region.” Grade 12 student Brady Youngman had already decided on a career as a millwright. Until recently he was committed to leaving town to learn the trade. He said that’s now changed. “You do see a lot of people leaving town for some things – especially the millwright. It’s good to see it here now.” The school district is allowing 2013 grads

to sign up for the programs once they start up in 2014. Both programs

count toward high school and apprenticeship credits simultaneously.

KITIMAT - Kitimat councillors had to vote one extra time for their move to a classroom at the Northwest Community College campus in Kitimat. That’s because, as administration noted, council actually didn’t vote on the motion the first time

when they discussed the matter a Committee of the Whole meeting. Council voted on and passed two amendments to the main motion first brought forward by Corinne Scott at the COW. Except once they established that they’d spend $10,000 to expand the classroom and that the move would be conditional on the college not having reservations

about council moving into the space, councillors didn’t actually vote to pass the whole thing. The main motion at their regular council meeting passed unanimously when presented on January 21. College representatives are excited, saying council’s presence will add to programs set to get underway at the Kitimat campus.

Bed damaged

Hospital foundation helped …

By Staff Reporter


TERRACE - Police say they located a 13-year-old girl reported as a chronic runaway. But they said she was not cooperative, repeatedly and inappropriately calling 911. “Police apprehended the girl under the Mental Health Act after she threatened to commit suicide,” read a police report. The girl was carrying a heavy piece of chain that was seized by police. Mills Memorial Hospital requested police assistance to remove the bed and then the mattress from the room because the girl was destroying them.

NEW AIYANSH - On Saturday morning at approximately 7:30 a.m., the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP attended a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian in the 5000 block of Skateen Ave., New Aiyansh. Police arrived to find members of the Gitlaxt’aamiks Fire Department and other first responders on scene, summonsed by the driver. Emergency crews worked to free an adult male pedestrian from underneath the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was arrested for impaired driving. The injured man was taken to the Nisga’a Valley Health Centre and later transported to Mills Memorial Hospital in Terrace. He is considered to be in serious but stable condition having sustained a number of injuries. Breath samples provided to police confirmed the driver’s blood alcohol level to be more than one and half times over legal limit. The driver has been released from custody as police pursue charges of impaired driving and drive over .08mgs.

Conviction for mischief in Epicurean fire By Quinn Bender The Northern connector

PRINCE RUPERT - A Terrace man has been handed a conviction of mischief in connection with a 2010 blaze that destroyed a Prince Rupert apartment building and vacant restaurant. Garth Lee was acquitted of arson. His sentencing is scheduled for May 6. The Prince Rupert Fire Department was called to an early morning blaze in the downtown core on April 30, 2010, and arrived to find flames and plenty of smoke coming from the old Epicurean Restaurant and neighbouring apartment suites. Firefighters rescued three people, but investigators determined that nobody was injured as a result of the fire. Thirteen firefighters were on the scene, and it took approximately two hours to extinguish the blaze. Lee, then 18, was arrested May 6, 2010, and charged with mischief endangering life and arson. Before Lee’s scheduled sentencing for the lesser charge of mischief, the judge requested a Gladue report be compiled. The report looks at the background of First Nations offenders charged with relatively minor crimes to offer judges all reasonable alternatives to incarceration, such as restorative justice.

Police seek three men THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

TERRACE - A woman hitchhiking from Terrace to Kitimat was a victim of inappropriate touching when she was picked up on Highway 37, say police. On Saturday, January 26 shortly after 3 PM the 24 yr old woman was picked up by three men in a white truck. Two men began to touch her inappropriately and did not stop when she asked them to. The woman opened the truck door, causing the driver to stop the truck. She then exited the truck and one of the men spat on her. The truck took off south

then stopped a short distance down the road and tossed out her belongings, report police. A conservation officer observed the distraught woman on Highway 37 at Old Lakelse Lake Dr. He picked her up and called for police assistance. Police transported the woman to Mills Memorial Hospital for treatment of her injured thumb that she slammed in the vehicle door when escaping. The truck is described as white, full sized, crew cab, open box, and between the years 2000 and 2005 model but unknown make. The driver’s first

VANCOUVER - The Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia (AME BC) welcomed Premier Christy Clark’s announcement at Mineral Exploration Roundup that $680 million was spent on mineral exploration in British Columbia in 2012, a record for the province. Mineral exploration expenditures rose 47 per cent over the previous record-breaking number of $462 million set in 2011. “As advocates for successful mineral exploration in British Columbia, we are excited to see this trend of record numbers year over year,” said Gavin C. Dirom, President & Chief Executive Officer at AME BC. “We are pleased that advanced metal and coal exploration projects in all regions of the province have led to these impressive numbers,” said Michael McPhie, Chair of AME BC. Our sincere hope is that many of these projects become the mines of the future to ensure that our province continues to supply the metals, coal and minerals that our society – and developing economies around the world – need for everyday life,” he said. Minerals North takes place in Terrace this year.

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. We’ve heard, loud and clear, from Aboriginal communities in B.C. that they no longer want to be bypassed by economic opportunities created within, near, or around them. With the Gateway Education and Training Fund, we’re doing something about it. We’re showing true commitment to community and workforce development. And the opportunities we’re sponsoring are not exclusive to our proposed project or our industry — they’re regional and cross-sector in nature. We want to stay connected to the Aboriginal community because it makes good business sense. But our intentions go beyond basic business: It’s about partnership. It’s about responsibility. And, ultimately, it’s about respect.

Heather Gammon (nee Douglas)


Congratulations Aaron and Justine von Schleinitz

Wishing you a lifetime of happiness. Love you always and forever, your parents... Alex & Margarita von Schleinitz

After a brief and courageous battle with cancer, Heather slipped peacefully away on the afternoon of January 18th, 2013 at the age of 74. Predeceased by her husband Bryan in 2008, and her parents Don and Helen Douglas in 1995, she is survived by her daughters, Karen (Dwayne), Jolayne, Janet (Ed) and her grandchildren Jacob and Brittany. She also leaves behind her sisters, Dona Dorash, Sherrie Gimse, Ember Douglas and Helen (Lally) Douglas and brothers, Trent, Frank (Clayton) and George Douglas. Numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces. Heather had a wonderful sense of humor and was well liked by all who knew her. She will be sadly missed. A celebration of life will be held at the Esquimalt Legion, 622 Admirals Road, Victoria, BC on Feb 2nd, from 1-4 p.m. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the charity of your choice.

 Tuula Opheim (Tydeman)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tuula Opheim on January 24, 2013. Tuula slipped peacefully into the arms of her Lord Jesus after a two and a half year struggle with cancer. She is survived by her daughter, Maigan Opheim; parents, David and Wilma Tydeman; sisters: Nerida Hygh (Steven), Zoe Tydeman; brother, Patrick Tydeman (Michelle), and a number of nieces and nephews. In her early adult years, Tuula lived in Nanaimo, Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge where she worked in the hospitality industry. In later years, she worked for Black Press at Williams Lake, the lower mainland, Ashcroft, and lastly, Prince Rupert, returning home to Nanaimo in 2010. Wherever Tuula lived and worked she made lifelong loving friends with co-workers, in her community and in her church. Her greatest joy was serving and giving to others and exercising her unique sense of humor. Our family gives thanks to the Drs, nurses and Hospice volunteers of the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for the wonderful, considerate care with which they attended Tuula during her stay there. Also for their kindness and encouragement to all family members and friends. A special thank you to Cheryl Rae and Debbie Bianchin for the love and support they gave to Tuula and family. A celebration of Tuula’s life will take place at Eagle Mountain Pentecostal Church on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 2 p.m. The church is located at the Howard Johnston Hotel on Comox Road, Nanaimo (beside the Greyhound Bus Depot).

Ice Demons defeat River Kings in overtime By Joe Pelletier


TERRACE - THE Kitimat Ice Demons defeated the Terrace River Kings 4-3 in overtime in game one of the Central Interior Hockey League playoffs on Saturday, Jan. 26. Kitimat’s Nick Markowsky deflected Ben Rumley’s point shot for the winner at 12:38 of extra period, giving Kitimat a 1-0 series lead. The Ice Demons also got goals from Jeremy Brady, Terry Whalen and Jeff Mildenberger, overcoming 1-0 and 3-2 deficits to force overtime.

The hometown River Kings had goals from Derrick Jurista, Tristan Murray and Corbin Legros. It was one of those nights for the River Kings. They played well, overcoming a hard charging Kitimat attack early in the game as the Ice Demons really pushed the pace. The River Kings were able to weather that storm thanks in part to strong play on the power play. The cocky Ice Demons team was guilty of some undisciplined play that Terrace capitalized on with 2 power play goals.

But Terrace had another goal disallowed due to a high stick. Terrace argued vehemently that Kitimat’s overtime forcing goal by Mildenberger was a result of goaltender interference. Murray, who had 1 goal and 2 assists, missed a beautiful chance to end the game late in regulation. And the lucky overtime winner handcuffed Garrett Muir who otherwise had a strong game. It was an entertainingly close game where both sides were worthy of victory. Though the home team did not get the win, Terrace’s largest crowd of the season were treated to an ex-

cellent game. The best of 3 series continues next weekend in Kitimat. The puck drops on game 2 on Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. at Kitimat’s Tamitik Arena. Game 3, if necessary, goes Sunday, Feb. 3 at 1 p.m., also in Kitimat. Tickets are available at the door 30 minutes prior to puck drop. Close games were the norm elsewhere in the CIHL, with the Williams Lake Stampeders taking Lac La Hache 4-3, and the Smithers Steelheads beating the Houston Luckies 4-3. And in blowouts, the Quesnel Kangaroos hammered Omenica Ice 7-1.

Kitimat curlers sweep competition in Smithers By Cameron Orr THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

KITIMAT - A Kitimat girls curling rink swept circles around their competition in Smithers at a regional high school zones championship. Their skillful play at the high school junior girls and boys zones playoffs means the rink will take to Kamloops shortly to test their might against provincial competitors. That tournament begins February 28. Coach Laurel deGoeij said their top performance in Smithers can be partially attributed to facing a relatively new team in the Bulkley Valley community. However the Kitimat rink has experience in high-level competition. They attended provincials last year and placed third, said deGoeij. This year is deGoeij’s first year as the coach. Looking ahead to their eventual performance in Kamloops, she said the girls CONTRIBUTED PHOTO / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR are feeling confident. “It’s certainly going to be stiffer Left to right, Coach Laurel deGoeij, Skip Rachel Rice, 3rd Taylor Reese Hanson, 2nd Micaela Stevenson, Lead Leah Anthony, and alternate Emma Baker.

Rupert Rainmakers win Junior Coastal Clash tournament By Shaun Thomas



The Prince Rupert Rainmakers White took home the championship after two days of competition in the Coastal Clash Tournament.

PRINCE RUPERT - Charles Hays Secondary’s first-place finish at the Junior Rainmaker Coastal Clash Tournament last weekend has given a big push to the team’s morale heading into the zone championships. The Rainmakers crushed Caledonia 51-20 in the championship match in Prince Rupert Jan. 26. The Rainmakers beat Smithers Secondary 74-36 earlier in the day to seed themselves in the final game. Rainmakers coach Kevin Sawka said the team’s execution has only improved since their exhibition in Vancouver earlier in the season. “Everyone showed a lot of composure, heart and determination,” he said. “As our skill level and experience has increased, the team has gelled even further and are really very aware of one another now. “There was excellent effort from all teams over the weekend. I was extremely proud of the way my guys played throughout the tournament, especially

the second string.” While the entire team shared in the championship win, the second-string “blue” team finished fifth overall, narrowly losing to Smithers 41-47, following two other games Saturday which saw a 29-47 loss to Queen Charlottes and a 60-56 overtime win against Friendship House. Sawka added leadership within the entire team is emerging in various roles, particularly with captain Rosendo Masocol dictating pace on both ends of the court. Mascocol was also named the tournament’s MVP. The team’s core of forwards was lead by Justin McChesney, who along with Keenan Pahl was named an All Star. The Player of the Game in the final was Perry Terrell. Sawka said he’s confident the team will continue to improve both individually and as a team as they head into the zone championships in Smithers Feb. 15 and 16. But before heading into the post season the Rainmakers will need to focus on its recovery from some minor injuries and a spate of flu infections that have overtaken some in the past couple of weeks.
