Another power line announced THE CONTINUING effort to push the provincial power grid into the far reaches of northwestern B.C. got a bit clearer last week with the announcement of a 93km power line that will stretch up Hwy37 North. The 287 kilovolt line will start at Bob Quinn on Hwy37 North where the 340km long Northwest Transmission Line, also 287 kilovolts, which is now under construction, is to end. It’s being called the Iskut extension but actually stops short at Tatogga Lake which is south of Iskut. This new line will provide power to the Imperial Metals Red Chris copper and gold mine under devel-

opment about 20km to the east of Tatogga Lake. A distribution line will be built to the mine site by Imperial. A smaller capacity line of about 16km will reach even further north from Tatogga Lake to Iskut, which now uses diesel generators. Under a complex agreement negotiated over a number of years, Imperial Metals will pay for the construction of the 287 kilovolt extension and BC Hydro will then buy it off of the mining company. BC Hydro will build the smaller line from Tatogga Lake to Iskut by itself. Imperial official Byng Giraud said Imperial will sell the 93km

line to BC Hydro for far less than what it will cost to build. “We’re building it because we need the line,” said Giraud. “This will serve our purposes as well as the public need.” He said the 287 kilovolt capacity of the line is greater than that needed by Imperial, paving the way for other companies to use power from it for their own purposes. “This should not be regarded as a subsidy,” he added of the money to be spent by Imperial to build the line. Imperial Metals is estimating, pending receipt of permits and final costs, an expenditure of $80

million. BC Hydro will pay $52 million to Imperial for the line, meaning the company will closely watch expenditures, said Giraud. Estimates prepared for BC Hydro some years ago pegged the cost of building a 287 kilovolt line all the way from Bob Quinn to Iskut at more than $100 million. Imperial and other companies who will use the Northwest Transmission Line and the extension will also pay a specific tariff to BC Hydro to defray the cost of the Northwest Transmission Line. Giraud said the extension should be finished in May 2014, the same time period Imperial wants to start

operating its Red Chris mine. Imperial has taken on the Tahltan Nation Development Corporation as a partner in the extension project. Giraud said a company skilled in power line construction has yet to be chosen. The province has exempted the extension from being reviewed by the BC Utilities Commission, saying it did so to speed up the construction timetable. Construction is still subject to provincial permitting but the extension will not go through the kind of extensive environmental review undertaken for the Northwest Transmission Line.

Local business files lawsuit ONE OF the local companies that’s done work at a multimillion dollar industrial project southwest of Terrace has filed a lawsuit saying it’s owed more than $100,000. Main Logging filed the suit March 14, stating Dowland Contracting Ltd., which had been hired by the owner of the Dasque-Middle run-of-river hydroelectric project to be its primary contractor, hasn’t paid it $110,752 for work done at the site. As listed in suit details, Main says it entered into an oral contract with Dowland in or about August 2012 to provide “trucking services necessary to carry out the installation of penstock pipe ….” “Pursuant to the contract, Main invoiced Dowland a total of $202,832.82, including applicable taxes for the work,” the suit states. “To date, Dowland has paid Main a total of $92,080.24, for the work performed.” The suit further claims “Dowland has refused or neglected to make payment of the outstanding amounts, despite demand.” As of late last week, Dowland had yet to respond to the suit. Dowland also owes money to other Terrace companies stemming from work contracted at the Dasque-Middle project which is owned by the Calgary energy firm, Veresen. Dowland was hired by Veresen in the spring of 2012. Veresen has already said it is not responsible for business dealings between Dowland and the companies it hired. “Main Logging thought it prudent to take legal course to try and satisfy their debt,” said Chris Moore, one of the lawyers hired by Main. Dowland has since pulled its people and equipment from the $80 million project and has sent a notice to companies saying it is owned money by Veresen. A March 6, 2013 memo sent by Dowland to its subcontractors and suppliers said that “Dowland has performed a significant amount of work for which we are owed payment by Veresen and, due to the owner’s unwillingness to compensate Dowland as per agreements, we have submitted several claims.”

Feds hire aboriginal specialist A VANCOUVER lawyer and federal land claims negotiator has been hired to blend in aboriginal rights and title issues with the burgeoning west coast energy industry. Doug Eyford, called a special federal representative, will send a preliminary report on his findings to Prime Minister Stephen Harper in June and a final one in November. Federal natural resources minister Joe Oliver, who made the announcement at Northwest Community College March 19, said the intent is to involve aboriginal people with energy projects so that environmental considerations are respected as well as jobs and economic development provided. “This will not be dialogue for dialogue’s sake, but dialogue in search of solutions. We don’t want another process; we want a product: a meaningful, tangible, purposive product comprising meaningful, tangible, purposive rec-

ommendations,” said Oliver in calling Eyford’s appointment a historic announcement. He said the energy and natural resources sector is an important employer of First Nations people, something that will continue as

more energy projects are developed. “It is no exaggeration to predict that responsible development of Canada’s natural resources can lead us to future prosperity,” said Oliver. Enbridge’s Northern

Gateway pipeline plan to ship Alberta crude to a marine terminal at Kitimat for export overseas, which has become a focal point for environmental and aboriginal opposition, wasn’t mentioned by name in Oliver’s remarks.

But Oliver, in responding to a question from the floor about Enbridge following his remarks, did say the work of Eyford will not replace any review of any project currently underway. Oliver described Eyford as a “seasoned, sensitive and straightforward negotiator.” He’s the federal chief negotiator on two land claims treaties in B.C. and represented the federal government in negotiations with various Tsimshian First Nations, including the Kitselas and Kitsumkalum, in clearing the way for an expansion of the Prince Rupert port. Oliver was introduced by Kitselas First Nation chief negotiator Glenn Bennett, who noted its interest in energy projects such as the Pacific Trails Pipeline. That’s intended to bring natural gas from northeastern B.C. to a planned liquefied natural gas plant owned by Chevron and Apache at Kitimat. “It’s a very important project,” said

Bennett. The Kitselas so far have cleared a portion of the pipeline’s right-of-way. Art Sterritt, the executive director of the Coastal First Nations, a group made up of First Nations along the mid and northern coast who was at the announcement, acknowledged Eyford’s experience. “This is probably the first time Minister Oliver has recognized aboriginal rights and title in British Columbia,” said Sterritt.

“First Nations must not only be consulted and accommodated, they need to give permission,” he said of industrial development. Sterritt’s group opposes Northern Gateway and says burning natural gas to provide power to run liquefaction plants will increase greenhouse gases. Eyford’s reports won’t be made public and he will be paid between $1,200 and $1,500 a day, said federal officials.

Mine gets conditional approval AVANTI MINING officials are busy this week lining up the financing needed to start construction of a $900 million-plus molybdenum mine at Kitsault on Alice Arm along on the north coast. The provincial government gave conditional approval to the project last week which will be the third time a company has extracted ore from the location. Avanti's plans are to begin full construction by this fall based on a 25-month schedule and time for an opening in 2015. Its business plan calls for more than 700 workers during construction and approximately 300 afterward during the projected 16-year operating life of the mine. Avanti is now assembling a combination of debt and equity financing totaling $938 million, says its president, Craig Nelsen. “We have spent about $70 million getting to this place,” he said of the exploration, engineering and environmental spending. Avanti has already been lining up the equipment it needs and has been working with the state-owned

Craig Nelsen export development banks of the countries in which its equipment suppliers are located to line up financing. “We hope to finalize the aforementioned mandate with our lending syndicate in the near future and the debt portion (target 65 per cent

or about $600 million) will depend on a variety of factors but will be conditional primarily on Avanti arranging the equity portion (approximately $340 million),” said Nelsen. At the same time, other company officials are working on the various permits required to meet the 34 conditions of the provincial environmental certificate. The company also needs approval from the federal government. In their reasons for granting the certificate, provincial energy minister Rich Coleman and environment minister Terry Lake noted the work that went into Avant's application, particularly on water sources. “In considering the proponent’s commitments to implement mitigation measures as described in the certified project description and the conditions of the environmental assessment certificate, we agree with the environmental assessment office's conclusion that the proposed project is not likely to result in significant adverse ef-

fects on surface water quantity,” indicated a document signed by the two ministers. However, the Nisga'a Lisims Government has filed a dispute notice under its land claims treaty with the provincial and federal governments, questioning the extent of the environmental work that was done on the project. Lisims president Mitchell Stevens said the Nisga'a rely on the Alice Arm area as a marine food source and that industrial development there would threaten those sources. “We have attempted to bring these concerns to B.C.’s attention for two years – to no avail. We were compelled to take this step because the Clark government has not addressed our concerns,” said Stevens. Dealing with disputes can start informally but can escalate to court action. Although the Kitsault area is not within the core Nisga'a lands that form part of its treaty, it is within a wildlife management area over which the Nisga'a have a decision-

making influence. Coleman and Lake, in their approval document, also noted the extent of Nisga'a involvement in the Avanti application. “We are satisfied that the province can engage, in good faith, in the dispute resolution stages, and meaningfully address any outstanding issues through the subsequent process required for permitting and in accordance with conditions of an environmental assessment certificate,” indicated the document. Avanti, as one of the conditions, must pay $100,000 a year into a trust to pay for programs to boost the moose population along the roads it will use to truck out its concentrate. One of those roads is the Cranberry Connector, which comes under the jurisdiction of the forest service. “Right now the principal user of the Cranberry Connector is Coast Tsimshian Resources but we expect this responsibility will transfer to Avanti who will be responsible for upgrades and maintenance of the road,” said Nelsen.

Terrace jobs fair touts local jobs By Josh Massey Terrace residents flooded into the Sportsplex March 20 to look at job opportunities from an array of employers. The BC Jobs Starts Here exhibit featured 23 employers and job-seeking aides, including iPads to search jobs and video kiosks playing mini documentaries. “I would say around 70 per cent of the exhibitors are hiring for northern B.C.,” said job fair representative Stephanie Munez. According to Munez, the north is a hotspot for jobs right now, and people who visited exhibits in the south were thinking of heading up here. But much of the push is to train and hire locally and several of the represented companies specialize in helping people get the education and training they need to stay in the general Terrace area, said Munez. This includes Kitimat Valley Institute, which has courses to help people earn high school equivalencies as well as offering safety training and resumé writing, supported by companies in Kitimat and Employment Insurance Canada. Leona Wells was at the fair representing Northwest Community College’s First Nations access support program. “We go into the community and recruit and work with educational coordinators within the communities,” she said. In a similar recruitment program, Robert Mills represented the British Columbia Aboriginal Mine Training Association (BC AMTA), which provides training within aboriginal communities.

Mills is opening an office this spring in Gitlakdamix to service a training program for the Avanti Kitsault mine. “The workforce is getting older and older in the region,” said Brian Leach of Pacific Northern Gas, stressing the need for a trained workforce. Echoing the spirit of local training was Hatha Callis of local Progressive Ventures Construction. “We are looking forward to meeting local people with experience and skill who want to go through an apprenticeship-type program,” said Callis. Past projects include upgrading the Pinkut Creek spawning channel on Babine Lake. Lorne Fisher, the assistant business manager for International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers said that his union has been active in the area since the early 1900s and that labour for a large percentage of the local IBEW crews was sourced from the northwest region. There are approximately 70 IBEW members working at the Rio Tinto Alcan smelter modernization project in Kitimat. “The whole mandate is to hire local as much as possible,” Fisher said. Most of the local hiring in the Terrace area has already been done, said Fisher, and the growing demand from industrial projects in the region will mean electricians will continue to come in from outside although locals will also have good prospects in the region. On the other end of the spectrum were companies that offer Terrace residents positions elsewhere. Chains like Save-On-Foods and Mr. Mike’s, and large companies like Investors Group were hiring both locally and for elsewhere around the province.

Half right PRIME MINISTER Stephen Harper got it half right with the March 19 announcement of what’s called a “special federal representative” to clear the turbulent waters of unextinguished aboriginal rights and title laid against industrial development, specifically the transport and export of fuels of one type or another. The federal government has not only a constitutional duty regarding aboriginal people, there are substantial legal precedents in place as well as political, economic and moral arguments justifying the appointment. That, however, leaves the remainder of the population along the various pipeline routes and facility locations left without a direct connection to decision making and participation. As much as it is correct to appoint a special federal representative for aboriginal issues, the scope and scale of development proposed or otherwise (what is it this week? $40 billion? $60 billion?) is such a tsunami affecting everyone that a case can be made for a similar position for the rest of the region’s population. Various governments, mostly provincial, have experimented with specific offices for northern affairs before. None were successful. Most times they were regarded as public relations gestures and tossed aside with a change in political winds. Federal natural resources minister Joe Oliver called the representative appointment a “seminal moment” in history. If that’s the case, let’s broaden that historical moment.

letter to the editor defending the American fisherman who was caught pretending to be a B.C. resident, published March 11, deserves a response and since no one better qualified has stepped up to do so, allow me. Right off, let me concur the regulations regarding whether or not a non-Canadian qualifies as a B.C. resident are as clear as the water in a spawning area. Even a lawyer’s eyes must boggle when he reads this: “B.C. Resident means: your primary residence is in British Columbia, AND (a) OR (b) Canadian Not Resident in B.C. means: you are not a BC Resident but (a) you are a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant, OR (b) your primary residence is in Canada, AND you have resided in Canada for the immediately preceding 12 months. Not a Canadian Resident means: you are neither a BC Resident nor a Canadian Not Resident in B.C. you are a Canadian citizen or a landed immigrant, AND have been physically present in B.C. for




CLAUDETTE SANDECKI the greater portion of each of 6 calendar months out of the immediately preceding 12 calendar months, you are NOT a Canadian citizen or a landed immigrant, but have been physically present in British Columbia for the greater portion of each of the immediately preceding 12 calendar months.” I’m not a lawyer, a fisherman, or a fishing licence vendor. But I would take it from those regulations, the American claimed Terrace as his primary residence and expected to qualify as a B.C. Resident under the last paragraph, until the conservation officer determined he had


nual licence without further proof of his residency status. An inviting loophole in the rules for obtaining a proper licence. As an aside, presenting a B.C. Driver’s Licence, whether honestly obtained or bought from a home production company, is an open sesame to all sorts of B.C. taxpayer funded services, including medical care. Asked what further proof a vendor required if they had any suspicions an applicant was a non-B.C. Resident, one vendor explained, to be a B.C. Resident he would have had to relinquish his right to vote in the U.S. and would carry legal papers to prove that. He would also possess a B.C. Residency card given to him after he qualified as a landed immigrant. Another vendor said they would ask where he pays his taxes. Not proof of where he pays his taxes, but his word alone. We know how good his word was or he wouldn’t have been in court pleading guilty. A spirited defence of an individual is understandable. But unlawful fishing depletes our fish resource for many more years, and cannot be tolerated.

not been physically present in British Columbia for the greater portion of each of the last 12 preceding calendar months. Now, he may have gone back to the U.S. for weeks or more to be with an ailing sister. All well and good. But my experience with American immigration rules is they don’t bend for compassionate grounds. Why should B.C.’s? If I had been him, with any doubts, I would have consulted a conservation officer. Or a lawyer. Surely a lawyer would have charged much less than the $4,375 fine the court imposed for making false statements to obtain B.C. resident angling licences. The fact this fisherman “had been faking residency for nearly half a decade to avoid paying for expensive non-resident angling fees” would have been easy to do once he obtained his first B.C. resident licence. Checking with three fishing licence vendors, a B.C. Driver’s licence could have got him started. He would have been assigned an angler’s number which could then be used in successive years to register for an an-

The Mail Bag Landfill plan fine as it is

file PHOTO

premier Christy Clark at her desk in the provincial legislature. Finance minister Mike de Jong is in the foreground.

It’s a crazy political world Dear Sir: Christy Clark is so hot she’s smoking. Too bad the voters appear to be calling the fire department to put her out. Clark’s problem is she took her own leadership as Part B of the Campbell term and continued merrily along with no regards for voters rights, such as getting rid of the HST. She has another fracking problem and that’s natural gas. In fact you could call the room

where her cabinet meets as a gas chamber. There appears to be no love lost towards her by those guys. But she pins her hopes on the future of B.C. regarding fracking gas and exporting it to places like China. China has it own natural gas; it just wants to use up our supplies until it has sucked us dry. Clark wants short-term solutions that will only leave long-term problems. In fact, that seems to be the business

end of the dirty stick when it comes to the BC economy. Remember what they did to forestry in the province? Then there’s Adrian Dix who seems to be trying to tell everyone he’s so businessfriendly he’s willing to hide in Clark’s shadow with a message that’s he’s really a BC Liberal type running the NDP. Is he going to get the forestry up and running; or is he going to play Russian Roulette

with our oil/gas resources? I would like a government that gets real with China and reminds them pipelines to the Pacific so they can suck us dry is not the thing for our future. I would vote, at this point, for Bill Vander Zalm rather than the line-up running. He did a good job with HST; but I’ll miss the $60 on my rebate cheque for HST. Brian Gregg, Terrace, B.C.

Dear Sir: The recent debate over the Forceman Ridge landfill is acting as a smokescreen for the real issue facing the majority of the taxpayers of the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, namely: why should we pay twice? The Ministry of Environment has established to the satisfaction of the city and the Regional district that a new site is necessary. The $800,000 price for investigating the site’s viability has already been spent, and the engineers and biologists have established to the satisfaction of the Ministry of Environment that the site will have a negligible impact on the environment. The process took far too long and cost far more than it should have, but the results are solid and we have them. The self-focus group in the Lakelse Lake area wants all the studies and related spending to start up again, just to put it in someone else’s backyard, and they want you and I to pay for it all over again. The simple facts are being ignored in this exercise: the landfill will be almost invisible from the lake, and will have no detectable impact on the lake or the environment, even in a conservatively modelled worst case scenario. This is clear from the work that has been done. I’m impressed with the strategy, because the enormous district-wide tax implications of starting all over again have been completely overshadowed by the unsubstantiated fears of the few. This is the outcry we should be hearing. Brad North, Terrace, B.C.

You read it here first. It’ll be a win for the NDP


s British Labour party prime minister Harold Wilson famously said, a week is a long time

in politics. So by that standard I would normally be chancing my arm trying to predict the outcome of the provincial election seven weeks ahead of polling day. Normally. But this time only the most diehard – and delusional – Liberal would anticipate anything other than a New Democrat victory. The Liberal death spiral began with the HST fiasco, an extraordinary episode even for British Columbia where a government was returned to power and then almost immediately committed political suicide. It steepened when, following the resignation of premier Gordon Campbell, the Liberal party members declined an opportunity to repair the damage and voted for Christy Clark as its new leader/ premier. While the terminally enthusi-

astic Clark has a winning smile and looks better in a hard hat than any politician I’ve ever seen, it didn’t take long for voters to discover there wasn’t a lot going on under that head gear. And the opinion polls have faithfully chronicled her descent into the abyss. So, the question is not who wins but by how much. I don’t expect a repeat of the near obliteration of the NDP in 2001 or annihilation of the Socreds a decade earlier: it just doesn’t have the same feel. By my count there are 15 seats where the Liberal margin of victory last time was less than 10 per cent and it’s pretty much a gimme all those are going NDP. And I would expect the Libs to lose about half the seats where the margin was 11-20 per cent. That equals eight seats, give or take. So take those 23 seats, add it to the 35 that were NDP last time and you have my fearless prediction: the NDP will win 58 seats. Much easier to predict are the


MALCOLM BAXTER three northwestern ridings: all are NDP today and will be on May 15, the day after the election. The Stikine riding was newly created in 2009 when Doug Donaldson beat out Liberal Scott Groves. The margin of victory was only 445, slim enough to give the Libs hope in a normal year – but as I said, this isn’t one of

those. On the North Coast Gary Coons unseated Liberal incumbent Bill Belsey in 2005 by just short of 1,700. Four years later and facing a credible Liberal opponent in former Prince Rupert mayor Herb Pond, he increased that margin to near 1,900. But Coons has decided to call it a day and the New Democrats have given the nod to first term City of Prince Rupert council member Jennifer Rice. Coons appeared to do a good job representing his riding, especially on big ticket issues such as BC Ferries. So there could be some slippage of votes that belonged to him. Plus Rice has a history of working for environmental groups that have had a nasty habit of opposing economic development. And economic development is something Prince Rupert, like all the northwest, would welcome. That said, she should win handily but I’ll be interested to see the margin.

Which takes us to Skeena where Robin Austin is seeking the hattrick. Here I am going to be looking for how many people even voted. To explain, in 2005 Austin unseated one-term Liberal Roger Harris by 359 votes. In 2009 Austin’s vote dropped by 301 but at the same time his majority shot up to more than 1,500 when the Lib vote crashed by 2,000. Since that election the Eurocan pulp and paper mill in Kitimat closed with the loss of more than 500 jobs with a good number of those employees leaving town and taking their NDP votes with them. Austin also faces a tougher opponent this time in Liberal Carol Leclerc. None of that will change the result – an Austin victory – but I suspect his majority will be sharply reduced. See you at the polling booth. Malcolm Baxter is the retired editor of The Northern Sentinel in Kitimat and now lives in Terrace.


More emissions would be wrong An open letter to: Katherine Voigt Director Environmental Protection Dear Katherine Voigt: I am very concerned about Alcan’s recent application to almost double its sulphur dioxide emissions in connection with its modernization program. The high Coastal Mountains of the region coupled with prevailing westerly winds dictates that this discharge will typically end up in a much smaller geographical area than is normally the case. As the rain washes sulphur dioxide out of the atmosphere or snow melts in the spring we will end up living with our own “made in Northwest BC” acid rain conditions. These acidic conditions could potentially greatly affect birches, maples, fruit trees, berries and vegetable production. On the human side we do not know how great this effect will be, yet it will most certainly directly affect people with respiratory problems, the young and the elderly. The increase in sulphur dioxide emissions has a direct impact on me as an asthmatic person and on my ability to grow fruit trees, berries and raise vegetables on our rural property, River Mist Farm, located on Braun’s Island. Fruit trees, berries and most vegetables do not like highly acidic soil conditions. The accumulation of SO2

on the snow cover over the winter will leach into my soils come spring. We are growing vegetables for local consumption and sell produce at the Skeena Valley Farmer’s Market, we sell to local restaurants and through farm gate sales and we also use berries, fruit and vegetables from our farm in our bakery, Baker Extraordinaire. A change in SO2 emissions of this magnitude should not be allowed. It is a direct threat to present and future gardening and farming operations in the Skeena Valley. Given its unique position, between the moderating effect of the BC North Coast, and the heat and cold of the BC Interior – Terrace experiences an average of 145 frost free days per year, and during most years it also achieves sufficient heat units to grow a wide variety of crops. The agricultural area plan that is currently being developed for the Terrace area by the City of Terrace and the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District spells out that an increase in agriculture is possible and highly desirable in this locality. The potential increase in SO2 emissions mitigates against the possibility of increased agriculture in the Skeena Valley and has the potential to affect the economic future of the Terrace area. Charles H. Claus, Terrace. B.C.

She’s voting for the future The treaty process allows us to determine for ourselves how to manage our lands, our fishery, our resources and our social development in a way that reflects our millenniaold culture. I am an advocate for the AIP because it sets the framework for a better life for my children. A final agreement will give us our Joanne Bertsch own constitution and laws. With no more Indian Act, our traditional way of life – hunting, fishing and foraging – can be preserved. By voting yes to the AIP, right away, we will see a concrete benefit of two parcels of land, totaling 158 hectares, being returned to us. And that land will be ours forever, no matter what happens in the later stages of the treaty process. And with that comes our ability to determine how that land is managed. April 10 is an exciting day for the Kitsumkalum people. It is an opportunity to shape our future. It’s an opportunity to make real the dream of our grandfathers and grandmothers who began working toward this decades ago. The AIP doesn’t mean we’ll have a treaty, but it does mean we are one step closer. Now is our time to take control of our future. Aren’t you curious about what the final agreement will look like? I am, and that’s why – I’m voting yes! Joanne Bertsch is a treaty ambassador to Kitsumkalum members living in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

By JOANNA BERTSCH ON APRIL 10 the people of the Kitsumkalum First Nation will have an historic opportunity to shape their future and the future of their children when their votes for or against a Kitsumkalum agreement in principle (AIP). I am proud to be from Kistumkalum, and since last summer I’ve been working as a treaty ambassador in Vancouver, where I currently live. Like roughly 500 other Kitsumkalum band members, I live off reserve. I’ve spent months visiting other urban members to provide information on the treaty process and vote. Through my work, I’ve come to learn that there are a lot of myths around the treaty and vote. One of the more common myths is that somehow, if a member votes to support the AIP, the treaty is a done deal. That’s not the case. The AIP is just an important step in the process, with many opportunities for dialogue and discussion to come. A vote for the AIP simply means that we are giving our negotiators the mandate to move forward toward developing a final agreement. The AIP covers many issues, but others still need to be worked out. Issues that will be tackled in the later stages of the treaty process include fishing, fiscal arrangements and resource revenue sharing. This hard work can only begin if the AIP is approved. Many ask if our treaty will be like other treaties. Like every First Nation, our treaty will be unique. We can look to other treaties and see what has worked and what hasn’t. We, as a community, have the opportunity now to shape our future and learn from the hard work of those that have come before us. This is our opportunity to emerge from the red tape of the Indian Act and stretch our wings.

Catch ban given the green light Starting this fishing season, Skeena-area anglers will no longer be allowed to harvest any Dolly Varden or bull trout caught in area streams. The provincial Department of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources (DFLNO) released its 2013-2015 fishing regulations last week, and they’ve locked in place a proposal made public late last year to move to catch and release only for trout and char caught in Skeena-area streams. The keeping of trout and char caught in area lakes is still permitted. “Trout/char quotas from Skeena streams have been revised. It is now prohibited to retain Dolly Varden or bull trout from any stream in the Skeena Region. One rainbow trout or cutthroat trout 30 cm or larger per day may be retained from Skeena Region streams from July 1-Oct. 31, however from Nov. 1-June 30 all trout from streams must be released to protect populations during particular vulnerable overwintering, spawning and post-spawning periods,” reads the new regulation guide. The proposal was released quietly just prior to Christmas last year, resulting in anglers charging the period for public commenting was too short, that a small proportion of anglers had an unfair proportion of influence, and that it would violate traditions of parents teaching their children how to

catch, dress, and cook fish. The DFLNO ended up accepting public comments beyond the initial commenting period. The proposal “really originated from proposals in Terrace at our angling advisory committee meeting, where people said we’re not seeing larger trout and char in the Kalum, Lakelse and the Copper River like we used to. If you go north or places where there isn’t much out there, then you start to see lots, and large fish, but not so much in and around [the Terrace area],” said Smithers-based fisheries biologist Mark Beere earlier this year, noting a precautionary approach is necessary because there simply aren’t enough fisheries officials to assess each and every stream. The proposal also cited worries that increased industrial development would harm fish habitats and lead to over-fishing. Vancouver Island and Peace-Omineca have similar bans in place. A petition by those opposed to the regulation change was circulated around the Terrace area during the first few months of the year. The local BCWF chapter sent a letter to DFLNO minister Steve Thomson urging him to reconsider the proposal and both Terrace city council and the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine wrote letters of opposition, as well.

The Canadian Cancer Society, celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year, is a national community based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. The Society funds research on ALL cancers, generating new knowledge on prevention, early detection treatment, quality of life and end of life care. Today, over 60% of Canadian diagnosed with cancer will survive. In the 1940s, when we started funding research, survival was about 25%. The Society enhances the quality of life for people living with cancer and on March 4, the Society opened the Kordyban Lodge to individuals and their caregivers travelling to Prince George for cancer treatment. The Lodge provides shared accommodation, three meals a day in a clean and caring environment. It has been heard to say “it is your home away from home”. The Society takes an active role in prevention through advocacy (nicotine replacement therapies available at no cost) and awareness programs (Tan Free Grad Challenge, encouraging students to fight back against skin cancer). The money raised during Relay For Life helps to support the Canadian Cancer Society in all it sustains, but it is not just a fundraiser. It’s an event that brings communities together to celebrate lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved who have fought or are fighting the disease and empower individuals to fight back against cancer. Register today and join the ordinary heroes who are making a difference in this battle against cancer.

Family opposes killer’s parole bid THE FAMILY of a woman stabbed to death in a southside residence in 1998 is once again mounting a campaign to oppose his parole application. Denied three times already, this will be the fourth time Christopher Alexander has applied for parole since being sentenced to life for the Dec. 9, 1998 murder of Linda LeFranc. Alexander, 17 at the time of the murder and a neighbour of LeFranc’s, stabbed her more than 80 times with a hunting knife after breaking into her house. LeFranc, then 36, was found by her sevenyear-old daughter when she awoke the next morning. Arrested following an extensive RCMP undercover operation in which an officer posing as the “Mr. Big” of a criminal gang got Alexander to admit to the murder, Alexander was sentenced following a trial here in 2002. He is now eligible to apply for parole at set times and his last application was heard and denied in January 2012. Although the parole board at that time noted that Alexander had made progress in realizing the extent of his crime and that he has been taking programs and undergoing counselling, it found his “level of insight, while improving, is still not adequate as the motive for killing the victim remains unclear.” In an eight-page decision, two members of the National Parole Board of Canada assessed Alexander as being a “moderate risk to reoffend violently” by being either on day parole or full parole. Alexander’s parole hearing is due to take place in late June and, if granted, his parole could begin as early as July, said Anita Johnstone, a sister of Le-

Franc’s who has been the driving force in opposing his release. As it is, Johnstone said Alexander has had approximately 130 escorted temporary ab-

sences and five 14-day unescorted temporary absences. Hard copies of the petition are circulating in Kitimat, LeFranc’s hometown, and in Ter-

race. Johnstone and family members have travelled to every one of Alexander’s hearings, held at the Fraser Valley institution where he is

being held. “Our intent is not to exploit or sensationalize Linda’s death but to justify our extreme concern and our continued position that Christo-

pher Alexander remains a serious threat to public safety and should never be released,” she said. The family has also started an online pe-

tition, http://www. national-parole-boardof-canada-lefranc-noparole-for-christophermaurice-alexander-petition.

MLA defends money plan BC LIBERAL allegations that NDP MLAs put money destined for constituency use into a slush fund for political use are incorrect, says the NDP. “They’re suggesting that somehow it was secret. It wasn’t secret at all,” said Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin. The party put together the fund with the advice of the comptroller of the legislature and the comptroller controlled it, he said. “It was not in NDP hands. He collected the money from each of the constituencies and paid bills,” said Austin. The fund was sanctioned by the provincial auditor general – the fund started back in 2007 – and he thought there was nothing wrong with it, he said. BC NDP caucus chair Shane Simpson said the MLAs have a limited fund to run their constituency offices and it doesn’t allow for much in the way of outreach, or multicultural services said Simpson. “There’s just not the resources there after you pay the rest of your bills,” he said. Every NDP MLA agreed to put $200 a month, $2,400 a year, into a joint pool, which raised about $80,000 a year to be used for multicultural services, he explained. The decision was made to go through the legislature so the chief comptroller was contacted and said

the fund was allowed and told them what they needed to do, said Simpson. “We met those conditions and he administered the fund for us and did it through his office so it would be accountable in the legislature,” he said. “Everything they spent money on was appropriate, not one dime went to the NDP.” The money was for a range of multicultural services in every constituency, which is a challenge as every constituency is getting more multicultural – some challenges deal with language, translation, or protocol for example, he said. So the MLAs wanted to pool the money to provide a range of services to support work with people in those communities, he said. The fund has been in place since early 2007 but has now been wrapped up with the election coming up, said Simpson. Since the money belongs to individual MLAs, the money needs to go back to the ones retiring as they need to return any money left in their accounts to their constituencies, he said. About $1,600 was returned to each NDP constituency. Also, even if the fund was to continue after the election, it would have to start at the beginning where every MLA would have to agree to it, said Simpson.

sign at the Sportsplex serves notice that abusive or offensive language won’t be tolerated. Temporary signs are now up at the aquatic centre carrying the same message.

Offensive behaviour signs to be posted THE CITY is going to erect signs at its aquatic centre warning against offensive behaviour after a March 6 incident in which a First Nations woman said she had overheard racist comments. The comments came from two youths between the ages of 12 and 14 who were in the sauna with the woman. City councillor Marylin Davies, who brought up the matter at the March 11 council meeting, said the boys continued to act out despite a verbal warning from city workers. Davies believes more could have been done to deal with the situation. A city bylaw gives enforcement officers, who include RCMP and the city’s Director of Leisure Services, the ability to ban individuals from city facilities

and property for up to seven days for offensive behaviour. “We’ve lost our awareness of it,” Davies said of the bylaw, adding that she believes a bylaw officer should have been notified in this situation. “I don’t want to punish them, just smarten them up,” Davies said of the youths. She wants the signs to promote equal opportunity and a zero tolerance policy toward offensive behaviour. The specific wording of the signs hasn’t been decided yet, but “will relate to treating others with respect while using the facility,” said city administrator Heather Avison. “Our intent is to get signs up as soon as possible.” Temporary signs have now been posted at the aquatic centre until permanent ones are

ready. “We have a lot of good people doing a lot of good work in Terrace,” Davies said about successful efforts of groups like the Skeena Diversity Society to make Terrace an equal opportunity municipality. “Those two kids shouldn’t be allowed to mess up something that has been so positive in this town,” Davies said of the situation, emphasizing that incidents like this are not widespread in Terrace but that measures should be taken nonetheless to remind people to respect others. She noted that there are equal opportunity signs posted at the recreation centre in the Nisga’a village of Gitlakdamix located in the Nass Valley. There are similar signs in the sportsplex here.

Avalanche warning issued several skiers were buried in an avalanche and rescued by another group at Shames Mountain Resort, the weekend of March 15 to 18, said Terrace RCMP. All were flown back to the resort by helicopter where the injured were treated and no one had to go to hospital, said police.

Later last week, the Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) was warning skiers about the avalanche risk in the northwest, focusing on Terrace, Stewart and north to Ningunsaw Pass, and inland toward the Hazelton and Smithers area, saying the snowpack had an uncharacteristic weak layer, which extended high into the alpine.

‘Kindness club’ helps hungry kids VERITAS STUDENTS have taken random acts of kindness to another level, helping out others their ages. The Acts of Random Kindness (ARK) Club, also called the kindness club, has about 25 students from Grades 1 to 5, who meet every Monday and decide on their mission for that week, says music teacher Kelly Lima, who works with the club. Students suggest their ideas and then vote on which they think is the best one. Lima found out that the Suwilaawks Hungry Kids program goes through seven boxes of cereal each day and realized if each student in the club brought in a box of cereal to donate, it would add up quickly. And it did, to almost 120 boxes. One reason to help is that these students are growing up alongside the others so they need to help support each other, said Lima. “The focus is not on the money but about what you as an individual can do to make others’ lives a bit better,” said Lima. All Veritas students are welcome to join the club, she added. Kindness club students encourage other schools to follow their lead, such as seeing how many boxes of cereal they can collect and donate to hungry kids.


the veritas Acts of Random Kindness (ARK) Club collected nearly 120 boxes of cereal for the Hungry Kids Program at Suwilaawks Community School.


Soon cyclists will have bike lanes to ride on while travelling up Kenney St. from Graham Ave. to Keith Ave.

City receives bike lanes grant By jOSH MASSEY MARGARET SPEIRS PHOTO

■■ For others kara escott-ljungh shows off her new short hairstyle and ponytail she’s donating to Beautiful Lengths, which makes wigs for women with cancer March 22. She thought it would be a good idea as “hair grows back anyway so why not chop it off and give it to something good.”

Parts of a busy industrial strip of road will be widened, repaved to be cyclistfriendly. Bike lane upgrades were announced just in time for spring, which means cyclists have twice the reason to rejoice. A grant of $41,300 was announced March 18 by the provincial government to help the city of Terrace install bike lanes on Kenney St. Construction of the 1.5m-wide lanes, which will follow both sides of Kenney from Graham to Keith, commences late May or early June, and will span 784m.

This is a cost-sharing agreement, so the city has matched the provincial investment to make the total amount $82,600, which comes from part of a larger resurfacing project, said Tara Irwin, the city’s sustainability coordinator. This stretch of Kenney St. was identified as a priority area for upgrades in Terrace’s 2009 Active Transportation plan as it has a lot of children walking and cycling to school, Irwin said. Mayor David Pernarowski called this project a step towards making Terrace a more cyclist-friendly city. “It’s always a benefit to the community when we can add infrastructure like bike

lanes to our transportation routes. The City of Terrace appreciates the provincial government funding to help us achieve our active transportation goals,” Pernarowski said. The grant was originally applied for in 2012 through the Cycling Infrastructure Partnership Program (CIPP). “The goal of the program is to promote cycling to work, school, or errands as a means of reducing traffic congestion and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,” Irwin said. Terrace was one of 20 communities throughout B.C. that received one of these BikeBC grants, drawn from a total fund of $7.36 million.





Ms. Bishop. In the library. With the coffee mug. I have a lot of science fiction—Orwell, Bradbury, H.G. Wells, Asimov and Silverman, Heinlein, Robert J. Sawyer. ... A full shelf homes titles by authors who are also personal friends. And another carries autographed works. And I have a small (but growing!) section with books that carry stories by me. I have gads of Stephen King, almost the full Merrily Watkins series by Phil Rickman (highly recommended, by the way), Diana Gabaldon’s wonderful genre-bending Outlander series, and a myriad of other scary or scintillating tales. They hulk in the shadows, balancing the sweetness and light of my Jan Karon and Maeve Binchy books. As my children grew, I parted with any kids’ books that were lame—but as children and YA writers are top storytellers in my books (Ha ha, pun intended!), I still have one full five-shelf case of “must keeps.” My collection is roughly 1/5 non-

fiction (but within that, a full shelf is devoted to poetry), with a higher concentration of writing craft and religious texts—but lots of history, social sciences, and philosophy, too. What fascinated me most circles back to my original goal of pruning my collection. Weirdly, it’s not the best books I have the hardest time parting with. The story between the covers isn’t my only consideration—nor the information relayed, nor the style, humour, or power with which the author writes. Not even my firm “Will you ever read this again?” question actually determines whether I cull or not. No, what really hampers my ability to part with a book is the story within the story. I bought this for Marriah and Christopher at that little bookstore when we were on holidays on the Island. My aunt and I spotted this book at the same time. She let me have it, but I “owed” her. This was the first book I read after my mom died. Aw, this is the one Chris read to Christopher all the time! Breaking Smith’s Quarter Horse! My dad was obsessed with this forever. And that—the notion that the story within a book is only part of the reason it keeps its spot when another, arguably far superior, might be pulled—was eye opening. I’ve long fought junk collecting because I know what a trap it can become. I had no idea that the psychology behind why I hold onto some books is similar to why some people can’t get rid of broken toys, old clothes, or boxes of knick-knacks they haven’t looked at in years. I’m happy to say I did complete my library/office weed through. I now have space to justify new books. The shoe closet and the kitchen cupboards are next. I’m a little scared. If you think I build sentimental, unrelated attachments to books easily, you should see what I can associate with old mixing bowls or a pair of satin slippers!

started to spring clean. I got as far as my library shelves and office cabinet. I’m prone to flights of daydreaming and distraction at the best of times, but when I’m supposed to be tidying books? Heaven help me! All those ideas, all those adventures, all those life-changing worlds and words ... I’ve been known to box up books, only to go back and rescue select titles. I keep doubles of some novels—because they’re that good and because it is a truth universally acknowledged that if you loan books, you rarely get them back. (Of course that fact means I rarely lend in the first place, but I like doubles in case, you know, I start.) Anyway, armed with fresh coffee, a multitude of multi-sized cardboard boxes, and a belly full of steely resolve, I headed to my miniature library. I’d just gotten through my writingrelated books (mostly keepers), when the biggest killer of productivity, housecleaning wishes, and de-junking desires hit me: an interesting thought. My brother had been sorting my Dad’s books and commented that you can learn a lot about people from their bookcases. I found his theory interesting. So interesting that I lost several hours to perusing titles with an eye to what secrets they might tell about my psyche, obsessions, and beliefs, instead of focussing on whether or not I would ever actually read or refer to them again. A deer skull (complete with lower jaw and teeth) sits atop one row of books (Christianity and other faith and religion texts). I’m not sure what that says. A bottle of wine lounges on its side, coming of age in the lofty company of modern literary fiction greats like Joy Kogawa, Barbara Gowdy, Wally Lamb, and Eden Robinson. Why am I storing a bottle of wine there? To make the classic authors a shelf above and a shelf below jealous? Perhaps. Also, it looks kind of pretty. A17

Council probes affordable housing

Housing in Terrace is now so tight that the new Blue Fin Sushi Bar restaurant on Lakelse Ave. delayed opening because employees had nowhere to live. “I was looking for a house with four bedrooms for my employees,” said manager Cindy Palmer. After a little over a month she finally found a house that the seller agreed to rent to the four workers. A drummer from the Blue Fin house band in Smithers had a family connection here, without which Palmer’s search may have dragged out even longer. This was one telling example that came up during a council session aimed at easing what Councillor Stacey Tyers called a housing shortage “bursting at the seams”. Director of Development Services David Block and Keith Goodwin from the housing committee went over eight recommendations contained in the Housing Action Plan. Council discussed the possibility of using a 10 per cent option for low income families, elders and people with disabilities as a negotiating tool to sell available plots of city land located on Haugland Ave., Park Ave. and Olson Ave. Development projects might then qualify for subsidies through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), Block said. Haugland and Park properties are currently zoned for multi-family development, and rezoning the property on Olson is not an issue. Based on this presentation council voted in favour of accelerating several Housing Action Plan initiatives to meet the 2013 budgetary year as op-

posed to the original 2014 timeframe. Councillor Brian Downie initiated this motion, calling for a steering committee charged with setting concrete dates for the Tuck Avenue Seniors housing expansion be formed soon as possible. Providing living quarters for seniors through the expansion of the residence located at 4623 Tuck Ave. would in turn free up space in existing buildings, said Lynne Christiansen, acting mayor in David Pernarowski’s absence. As to why developers shy away from Terrace, several council members remained mystified. While it is true that construction costs can be 10 to 20 per cent higher, this is offset by lower land prices. It could be that investors still aren’t convinced that the Terrace economy will stay up, said Lynne Christiansen. The possibility that low rental prices in Terrace might deter developers was also discussed. “I am not going to encourage really high rent,” Tyers said, echoing one of the key points in the original 2009 Housing Terrace Report to “explore, develop and manage affordable housing units.” An important part of the current action plan is to prioritize “the housing needs of the mentally ill and individuals with addictions, seniors, individuals with developmental disabilities and youth at risk.” To facilitate a dialog between financiers and the city, Goodwin called for a one day symposium be held this year to bring together developers and financiers. A workshop on non-profit housing is also in the works.

Gold and glory for Terrace girls Terrace bests North Shore 2-1 in close championship final The Terrace Kermodes smothered the North Shore Avalanche 2-1 in the gold-medal final of the B.C. Bantam A Female Hockey Championships last Wednesday night at the Wesbild Centre in Vernon. Terrace avenged a round-robin loss to the Avalanche – their only loss of the four-day tournament – with some steadfast defence, a hot goalie and some clutch scoring. Terrace goalie Kelsey Roberts was named player of the game with 36 saves. “We were really nervous because we lost to them earlier, but it was a close game so we knew if we came out hard we had a chance to beat them,” said Roberts. Roberts made a huge stop on Avalanche captain and scoring leader Mika Embury, on a breakaway 90 seconds into the final. “I felt really nervous at the start, but after I made those first few saves, I got into the swing of the game,” added Roberts. North Shore controlled play for most of the first period, but the Terrace defence and Roberts kept clearing pucks to the corner and up the ice.   Terrace's Taylor Beck opened the scoring in the first minute of the second after a faceoff win, converting on a Sedin-like slap pass in the high slot, to the far side. Assists went to Caitlyn Ray and Bailey Kasum. North Shore kept pressing and equalized on a power play with two minutes remaining in the second. Tianna Lopes walked out of the corner uncontested and went backhand, stick-side. Just one minute later, Terrace responded with 1:38 left in the second.  Myah Bowal won a battle in the corner and put the puck in front for Marissa Nichol, who one-timed a beauty off the cross bar, past Avalanche goalie Alexandra Gulstene. “It was awesome,” said a gushing Nichol, moments after the win. “Top shelf. I’ve

dreamed about doing that. It’s such a great feeling.”  The Avalanche did not let up and kept the puck pinned in the Terrace zone.   “It was so nerve-wracking, knowing that you are only one goal ahead and they could score at any minute, but we worked so hard all year and we knew what to do,” said Nich-

The Caledonia Kermodes’ season came to a close on a winning note at the AA Provincials in Langley on March 16, placing 14 out of 20 after proudly representing their school and community with the best in B.C. With the exception of the top five teams, the competition was quite even. Terrace was close to a top eight finish – one crucial game was lost in the final seconds of play. The team started off with a big win over Burnaby Mountain that boasted seven lead changes and seven ties before the Kermodes crept away from the Lions. Terrace was down by two at the half but Marcus MacKay sparked the team up in the second half, dropping five of his seven “treys” to lead all scorers with 30 points. Kermodes outscored their opponents by 11 in the second frame for a 59-50 victory. MacKay was named player of the game. Reegin Maki added 13 points and Patrick Kurek seven in support of the Kermode win.

In game two, Kermodes were up against the number three ranked Yale Lions of Abbotsford, a perennial powerhouse from the Fraser Valley. Terrace got off to a bad start – decent looks at the hoop but couldn’t get the ball to drop – as the Lions shot a blistering 75 per cent, leaving the Kermodes down 27- 6 after the first frame. But then the Kermodes rallied. With extra pressure being applied to MacKay and Maki, Patrick Kurek shouldered the weight of the offence and allowed the team to show it could play with the top teams. In the end, the Kermodes fell 95 – 63 but were inspired by the fact Yale had to play its starting five for almost the whole game, while the Kermodes went to their bench for support earlier. Kermodes were led in scoring by Patrick Kurek with 21, Marcus MacKay and Reegin Maki with 13 each and Kynan Finnie with eight. Then the Kermodes faced the number one team off Vancouver Island, the Claremont

Coach Mario Desjardins also said the last 80 seconds of the game were excruciating. “I remember our team getting the puck out of zone after relentless pressure from North Shore with their goalie out of the net and glancing up at the clock and watching the last 13 seconds tick off the clock,” he

said. “When the final buzzer went, it was the most amazing feeling, watching the girls jump over the boards with stick and gloves flying onto the ice and piling up on their goaltender.” The win was even sweeter because the team fell short last year, taking silver to Prince George’s gold, he said. And their previous loss to the North Shore earlier in the tournament turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it allowed the coaches to scout the team and come up with a game plan for the final. “After playing them throughout the week we noticed they never used their defence, ever,” he said. “Their forwards were programmed to cycle and either skate through the seam into the slot or give and go from the corner to the player shaking through the seam.” In order to contain North Shore’s offensive cycle, Terrace would have to force them team to use its defence as an outlet while playing man-to-man defence themselves. This threw North Shore off their game, resulting in more turnovers as the team struggled to adjust. “Our team played it to a T for 60 minutes,” he said. “Every player on our team committed to our game plan ... A complete team effort,” he said. “The coaching staff couldn’t be prouder of our players.” Back in Terrace, accolades also poured in for the Terrace team. “I'm very proud of their hard work and dedication,” said Terrace Minor Hockey Association (TMHA) president Terri Soucie. “TMHA salutes the girls, coaching staff and manager.” And the team was recognized by Terrace mayor and council at Monday’s council meeting. The last time Terrace brought home a provincial championship was in 2010/2011 when the Bantam Reps won gold with Jesse Schroeder as the coach. With files from Kevin Mitchell, Vernon Morning Star

Close calls close Cal Kermodes’ season Spartans, for a very physical and intense game that was decided at the foul line – unfortunately the Kermodes’ Achilles heel for this game. Both teams struggled offensively due to the aggressiveness of the play. With a minute and a half left, the Kermodes went one for six from the charity stripe and a paltry 15 of 27 overall. The final score was a heartbreaking 49-48 for the Spartans, a loss that took them out of a placement in the top eight. Down by one with 11 seconds left, the Kermodes were unable to execute a play or a shot during that time, which left them with a very empty feeling at game’s end. It was definitely the one that got away. Kermodes were led in scoring by player of the game Reegin Maki with 23 points and Marcus MacKay with 13. For game four, the team met the seventh ranked Bulldogs of Sir Winston Churchill – an important game after their devastating loss the previous day. Both teams came out

focused and intense, making for a very exciting game with 11 lead changes and 11 ties. Terrace put up 27 points to Churchill’s 24 in the first quarter but slipped a little in the second quarter to be down 44-41 at the half. The game came right down to the wire once again with the score 72-69 for the Bulldogs and with 19 seconds left, the Kermodes were able to execute a play that put them in a position to tie the game. Mackay ran off a couple screens to receive the ball outside for a chance at a three-point basket. The shot looked good but went in and out before settling into the hands of a Bulldog player who was promptly fouled by the Kermodes. With only three seconds left, the Bulldog player hit both foul shots to sink any hopes of a second chance to tie. They all had a stand out game in the loss and showed a great deal of pride and heart in coming back after the previous day’s loss.

Losses could have gone either way, says team The final game of the tournament for the Kermodes, against the Mt. Baker Trojans of Cranbrook, was previously decided as a gem that all players would get some time on the floor – and with 17 players it was not an easy task, but co-coach Joe Dominguez made it work. Terrace easily walked away with a victory, outscoring the opponents 75-46. Kermodes were led in scoring by Marcus MacKay’s 18 points. Player of the game Reegin Maki with 17 and the remaining scoring was picked up by 13 other Kermodes. This marked the last game as head coach for Cam MacKay. Joe Dominguez will take over the reins and with MacKay’s welcome assistance. The team left the tournament satisfied with its efforts but slightly disappointed in the two losses that could have gone either way. The boys proved to all the teams that they were there to compete and rivalled those teams in the top 10. Considering the disadvantage of lacking same-division competition, except for the few games against the Queen Charlottes, throughout the majority of the season the Kermodes showed extremely well. “I am very proud of the way the kids competed with the top teams of the province and they should have no regrets in the efforts they brought to the table,” said coach Cam MacKay. “I am always happy to see them perform well on the ultimate high school sports stage.” And Marcus MacKay received recognition of his tournament play by receiving a $2,000 basketball scholarship at the awards ceremony. Five $2,000 scholarships were handed out that night to deserving players of the tournament. A very rewarding accomplishment for Marcus and ultimately his Kermode teammates, who all can take pride in any of the individual and team awards received by players and the team.

Local runner finishes first in Vancouver race Local masters runner Ed Ansems competed in the 5km BC Championship road race on March 16, finishing first in his age group (65 to 69) and 146 overall out of all finishers. His time was 20 min. and 44 sec. which works out to 4:09 per kilometer or 6:34 per mile. The race was held in conjunction with the annual St. Patrick's Day 5km race held at Stanley Park in Vancouver. The race reached its maximum of 2,000 entrants, 500 more than last year. Ansems’ next race is a 10km April 21 at the Vancouver Sun Run, one of the largest 10km races in North America, attracting more than 50,000 entrants. It’s also the BC Championship for 10km distance. “I'm looking forward to running these shorter races because in the

Ed Ansems last seven years, I have only run in the half marathon distance (21km) races,” he said. “The training for these shorter races is different and I'm finding it fun to see how fast I can run at this 'old' age of 65.”

he Canadian Firearms Academy Ltd. and the BC Wildlife Federation together with the provincial government run The Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) program.  The program is designed to teach hunters about the laws and regulations covering their sport; first aid and survival training; firearm safety; the identification of animals. It also educates them about conservation and the ethics of hunting. All B.C. residents of 14 years of age or older who wish to hunt or obtain a B.C. hunting license are legally required to have passed all components of the course. To ensure this, those taking the course are given a written exam.  Andrew Williams, fellow outdoor journalist and brother angler, and I were discussing some of the many problems arising from a lack of knowledge and understanding by so many fishers when I suggested this idea of a program similar to CORE for anglers, a notion I have promoted in this space in the past. Andrew agreed that the current angling regulations have never been more complex and that they have been further complicated by the fact that the two regulatory bodies, DFO and FLNRO, have laws governing different species in the same river.  A few years ago, I came across an ex-

nally, there might be a show on all of the safety issues associated to fishing. If money for these productions is an issue, corporate sponsorship shouldn’t prove difficult to round up. Andrew’s idea was that after watching these videos, the applicant would write an examination online, and be granted an angler’s licence after paying the requisite fee. I suspect that, if videos were of high quality, the prospective license holders would want to view them, but, since it would be relatively easy to avoid the course and still ace the online exam, the applicants could be required to go to the nearest Access Centre to complete the exam. The benefits of creating a challenging program leading to the issuance of an angling license would be many – fewer fish would be needlessly killed or injured as fishers who, in the past might have unwittingly damaged fish habitat, would now have a greater understanding of ecosystems and modify their behaviour. Conservation officers would spend less time dealing with petty offences thanks to a more enlightened population of anglers. An angling licence would become more than just a piece of paper. It would be a graduation certificate, a source of pride, the earning of which would have instilled a proper regard for fish as a part of the natural world and a valuable part of our heritage.
