The 27th Annual Tweedsmuir Ski Race saw its best turnout yet with nearly 70 skiers! See more pictures on page 4.

27th Annual Tweedsmuir X-Country Ski Race sees record turnout Great people and great weather made Tweedsmuir Ski Club’s 27th Annual Cross Country Ski Race a successful day. We had record numbers with a total of 68 participants ranging in age from approximately 70 years old to a few months old! It was a fun race this year, especially for the little kids who had the chance to ‘dig for treasures’ along the way. We had a large showing of

youth, with students from both SAMS Outdoor Ed Class and Acswalcta School entering the race. David Enderud was the overall race winner, skiing 24km in 2:02:50 and Kerry Boileau finished first in the female 24km division. Rick and Donna Ratcliff and Vera Robson also skied the entire 24km. The title of fastest under-16 youth to ski 14km

went to Aaron Schieck, with Elijah Mecham coming in a close second and skiing a total of 21km. Other honorable mentions include Kai Gunderson, who was the youngest skier to ski the 14km route. Thanks to Bill Ark for helping time the skiers, as well as the individuals who help pack and mark the track in the blizzard the day before the race! And a special thanks to Lyle

Enderud and Duane Pederson for their dedication to grooming the trails. The race ended with a great chili and hotdog potluck lunch and prizes and mugs were given to the fastest skiers. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the event, hopefully we’ll see even more people next year for the 28th Annual Race! The Tweedsmuir Ski Club is

also hosting a Grand Opening BBQ/Party in celebration of the newly rebuilt overnight Cabin. The event will take place April 7 at 11am at the overnight cabin in Tweedsmuir Park. It’s about a 15 minute walk/ski/ snowshoe in and everyone is invited to come join in the winter fun and BBQ. We hope to have ice fishing and sledding, as well as the ski hill and rope tow running. See you there!

Nuxalk Nation Transition House to hold celebration to honour residential school survivors community today. Sadly, many of the survivors have died from alcohol, drugs and illness from the effects of the residential schools. To honour survivors past and present, the Transition

House has organized a day-long celebration that will include the unveiling of a plaque listing the names of the Nuxalk survivors, a community feast, speeches, healing ceremonies, and traditional songs

and dances. The entire community is invited to take part in the celebration, which will begin at 10am, April 5, in front of the Qw’asmals building in downtown Bella Coola.

British Columbia

Aboriginal students and staff assembled outside the Kamloops Indian Residential School, Kamloops, British Columbia, 1934 Archives Deschâtelets. On Friday, April 5, the Nuxalk Nation Transition House will hold a celebration to honour the survivors of the infamous Canadian residential school system. In 1861, St. Mary’s Mission, the first residential school in Canada opened in B.C. It was also the last school in B.C. to close in 1984. Between those dates, at least 15 other residential school and 10 boarding schools opened and closed. This meant that B.C. had more residential schools than the other provinces. Over the years, all schoolaged Native children in the province were targeted for removal from their homes to these schools. Children who went to residential school suffered a loss of culture, identity, language, family and more. Their only models on how to live and have relationships came in the form of institutional rules and school staff and clergy. In addition, the children were treated as second-class citizens or worse.

Clothing, food and living conditions were generally sub-standard in residential schools and screening of school staff was minimal, leaving the children vulnerable to many kinds of abuse and neglect.

The impact of this mistreatment was a silencing of young and innocent voices. Since the Truth and Reconciliation process began in 2008, many Canadians have been shocked to learn of the atrocities committed against

Native children that took place during their lifetime. The Nuxalk Nation people have four generations who have gone to the residential schools, and an estimated 100 or more survivors are still living in the

Spring a time of 'awakening' Dear Editor, Everyday the snow line creeps a little higher up the mountains following the reading on the thermometer. Hours of sunshine puts smiles on faces, bugs in the air and blossoms on our cherry trees - Spring is on its way. Spring, long thought of as the season of rebirth, a time of 'awakening' for the earth, spirits, and ideas. Here is an empowering story of a boy who resolved lifethreatening conflict with a brilliant idea. Richard Turere, a 13 year-old Masai cattle farmer, had been tending his father's herd since he was nine years old. At the end of each day, he would round up the cattle to overnight in their stall. Conflict arose at night when resident lions found the confined cattle easy prey. Introduced, 'non-natural' attractants (cows) were drawing the lions into deadly conflict with humans. Cows were being preyed on, lions were being killed, and the potential for human tragedy was huge. From experience, young Richard realized that lions, pure carnivores that live and

hunt in numbers, as a team/pride, did not like human presence. Richard knew that in order to resolve this conflict, he had to create a boundary around his livestock that the lions would recognize and respect. He initially tried using scarecrows, but the intelligent lions very quickly understood that the stationary dummies weren't real people. Richard then mounted lights around the cattle stall and these worked briefly as lions know to associate bright lights with people. However, the lights were also stationary and shone constantly. The lions very quickly recognized no people were present. Richard then salvaged a turn indicator off a junked motorcycle and wired it to his array of cattle stall lights. Now his lights flashed on and off, from one to another, all around the stall, fooling the lions into thinking that people were walking about with flashlights. A 12 Volt car battery, a small solar panel for charging the battery during the day, some wire, a few LED lights and a turn indicator off a wrecked motorcycle - an electric fence. No more

conflict; no more danger; no more killing. No more living in fear. So easy, a kid did it. Spring is also a time when the bears of B.C. (Bella Coola, British Columbia) awaken for a new year of being bears - "eat, drink and be beary". There are peaceful, responsible solutions to every perceived conflict. If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends. If an egg is broken by an inside force, life begins. Great things happen from the inside. Happy Spring everyone.

The race begins!

Journalist, hip-hop artist, and social activist Wab Kinew to host “JOB RAP” Multi-talented Ojibway hip-hop artist/host/journalist and activist Wab Kinew will be the special guest at the ‘Hip’ Career Fair at Acwsalcta School on Thursday, April 11. Winnipeg-based Kinew has worked hard to bring national attention to first nation’s issues, and most recently was the TV host of CBC’s documentary series, 8th Fire, on aboriginal peoples. Kinew now travels the globe speaking about issues important

to first nations people, but he remains rooted in his traditional Anishinaabe culture. “When I was a young boy, I had a vision telling me to become a pipe carrier. Since then I've had many excellent wisdom keepers take the time to show me the traditional ways of the Anishinaabe and Lakota peoples,” said Kinew. “At one point, I turned down an academic scholarship at an American university so that I could be closer to my grandpa

and learn from him. In hindsight, this was

a great move because today I feel grounded

view, and I still earned a degree closer to home.” Most recently, Kinew has earned admiration for his role in leading the CBC’s coverage for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's first national event in Winnipeg. “I was honoured to tell the stories of many Residential School Survivors and even one of their teachers. Most meaningful on a personal level was the chance to tell my father and and my

in the traditional Anishinaabe world

family’s story,” said Kinew. “That piece has racked up awards and accolades, but perhaps more importantly, has lead many nonNatives to tell me it helped them develop empathy towards the Survivors and their descendants.” In addition to journalism, Kinew is also a talented musician who has released several albums. At the JOB RAP, attendees can take in some of Kinew’s music, as he is scheduled to perform.

Common-law couples as good as married in B.C. CBC News A new legal definition of "spouse" came into effect in B.C. last week, meaning that common-law couples that have lived together for two years have the same rights and responsibilities as married couples. Under the act, a spousal relationship begins either the day a couple is married, or on the day they move in together — whichever comes first. And once an unmarried couple spends two years living together, it's a done deal. Family lawyer Grace Choi says it was time for the old family law act to get a makeover. "Because the Family Relations Act is now about 34 years old, the [new] Family Law Act wanted to ... reflect more about what was going on in society,"

Choi she told CBC News. The new stipulations under B.C.'s Family Law Act treat common law couples the same as married couples for purposes of property division if they split up. Couples who have been living together for two years share the same legal rights as married couples, including a 50/50 split of shared debts and assets, excluding prerelationship property, inheritances and gifts. In the past, people who had been living together for decades were not entitled to share in assets accrued during the relationship. "If you're the person who owns the assets and decided that you didn't want to get married — part of the reason was because you

didn't want to opt into the property division regime — you're going to find this difficult to swallow," Choi said. In B.C., there were more than 160,000 common law couples in 2011, and that number was growing at a rate three times faster than the number of married couples. Statistics Canada estimated that the number of common law couples across the country was growing four times faster than the number of marriages. Some family lawyers have advised common-law couples to enter into legally binding co-habitation agreements to save additional grief during a potential future breakup. Though other provinces have some form of marriage-like designation for com-

mon law couples, the definitions and rights afforded those couples vary widely. In Nova Scotia, a common law ex-partner would be entitled to spousal support and a portion of pension benefits, but wouldn't be able to claim half of any property, including the family home,

the car, or jewelry. Under existing Quebec law, partners in a de facto relationship have no rights, duties and responsibilities to each other — no matter how many years they've lived together. The Quebec law was recently challenged by the ex-

partner of a business tycoon who sought a $50-million lump sum separation payment, but in January, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the province's civil code is constitutional in its treatment of the financial entitlement of couples who are not legally married and

who separate. Statistics Canada says nearly 1.4 million Quebecers are in what the federal agency calls "common-law" relationships, according to the 2011 census, and about 60 per cent of children are born to such unmarried couples.

“Shadow and Light” Opens at Art House Ernest Hall Travel has always been a big part of Joan Cole’s life, and her urge to “make” photographs (not “take” them) has always been a companion on her journeys far afield. Her show of more than 60 images in both

colour and black-andwhite which opened at the Art House in Hagensborg March 22 spans the globe – from Bella Coola to Taiwan, from Iceland to Argentina, from Antarctica to Canada’s High Arctic. A gravestone in Paris, a musk ox skull on Devon

Island, the surf in Bali, a rose in Tasmania, a black-and-white sewing machine in the High Arctic – these are only a few of the vast variety of subjects that have passed through the lens of Joan’s camera as she has pursued a passion that began when she was given a

Brownie camera as a child. Travel and photography were both part of her upbringing (her father took slides on their many family trips), and Joan found that photography provided “different ways to view things”. She learned to

distinguish between “taking” pictures (for example, snapshots of people) and “making” photographs – that is “composing” an image from the visual material presented through the eye of her camera. She says her work is inspired by the beauty of nature – its colours and forms (where she tends to present the image in colour) – and also by the shapes of architecture – where she often resorts to black-and-white. Since that childhood Brownie, Joan has graduated through many levels of photographic technology, with the biggest one being the shift from film to digital – a change that she resisted for several years until her Nikon gave up on her and she had to take the digital plunge. She still hasn’t figured out all the possibilities of digital photography, but when it became obvious that film was on its way out, she consulted Bella Coola Valley photographer Michael Wigle who helped her through the transition. She appreciates the digital ability to alter the contrast, intensity, and brightness of an image, and the ease of transforming a photograph from colour to black-and-white or vice versa. Often

Photo by Orion Croft

Photographer and artist Joan Cole with her collection from 'Shadows and Light' she finds “colour can detract” from an image – particularly if the subject is architectural in nature. However, because of the importance Joan attaches to the actuality of the real image, she doesn’t alter the photograph by “photoshopping” to remove or replace details. Her primary use of the digital capability is for cropping the photograph in order to enhance the composition inherent in the image and which she has in mind when she opens the shutter. Her computer is a tool for fine-tuning the image. Joan is pleased that “Shadow and Light” will grace the Art House walls for an extended period and that the Arts Council

is dedicated to revitalizing the venue. “It’s the only venue of its type in the Valley,” she says, “a great asset in a great location” with its outdoor awningcovered deck, lawn, and trees – the perfect place for an “English Tea Party” that Joan recalls – complete with fancy hats and silver service. Joan has been involved with the Council since the 1970’s and has seen its fortunes decline with changes in the Valley economy. Nevertheless, the Art House has “character”, she says, and monthly events that increase its use as well as a more business-like approach will make the venue more viable.

Bella Coola on the list for new incentives to recruit doctors to rural communities Press Release The government of British Columbia and the BC Medical Association are partnering to establish a new incentive that will help improve access to primary and specialist physician care in rural communities. The Rural Physicians for British Columbia incentive, implemented last week, aims to fill 20 pre-designated family physician and specialist positions. The incentive will provide each physician with a one-time payment of $100,000 when they commit to a threeyear return of service in 17 designated rural communities. The 17 communities are Bella Coola, Burns

Lake, Chetwynd, Clearwater, Cranbrook, Galiano Island, Hazelton, Kitimat, Nakusp, Pemberton, Port Alberni, Port Hardy, Princeton, Quesnel, Terrace, Tofino and Tumbler Ridge. “Helping to fill much-needed rural family physician and specialist positions not only benefits local families, but also provides additional support for physicians and other health-care professionals in the community,” said Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid. “We often hear about the challenges rural doctors face, but having worked as a family physician in rural B.C., I can tell you that there are many

rewards to rural practice from a diverse practice to a unique connection with patients and families.” The Rural Physicians for British Columbia incentive was developed by the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues, a committee comprised of the government and the BCMA. The Joint Standing Committee develops programs that strengthen rural health care and encourage physicians to live and practice in rural and remote areas of the province. “This initiative will be a boost to many patients living in areas of the province that just don't have enough physicians to take care of them,”

said Dr. Shelley Ross, president of the BC Medical Association. “The BCMA is committed to providing British Columbians with the highest standard of health care, so if we can make it more attractive for physicians to set up practice in rural areas, we should.” Participating physicians will receive $50,000 when they begin working in the community. The remaining $50,000 will be paid once they have completed one year of service. All applicants must commit to a threeyear return of service and the full amount must be repaid if this commitment is not fulfilled. Primary and specialist physicians are eligible to apply

for the incentive, as well as medical school residents who transition to full-time practice in one of the designated rural communities. Other eligibility requirements include: being recruited to and residing in one of the eligible rural communities, moving from outside B.C. or from a non-rural community within B.C., residing and practising in the community for a minimum of nine months each year, full or provisional registration and licensure from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. , general practitioners must provide full-service family practice in addition to comprehensive

Stinging Nettle shoots are common in the Valley can be harvested from mid-February to April when the plant is young (6-12 inches tall) and are used as an excellent spinach or basil substitute; lightly steamed and eaten with butter and salt, cooked in lasagnas and soups, blended up fresh in pesto; experimentation highly encouraged! The leaves are a great source of vitamin A, C, iron, calcium, magnesium, chlorophyll and potassium. Wear gloves and use scissors to avoid stinging your hands but remember: this sensation can provide rheumatic relief! Pick an extra few grocery bags full and dry them to add to soups or have as tea. Thimbleberry and Fireweed shoots are harvested in the same season and method as Stinging Nettle. Pluck the leaves and peel back the skin of Thimbleberry shoots and eat raw. The kids like it dipped in sugar these days.

Fireweed shoots can be peeled and added to salads or steamed up. Traditionally in this area, wild greens like these were dipped in Ooligan grease or

eaten with Herring eggs and grease. However you choose to prepare it, enjoy the bounty this wonderful region naturally provides!

In February 2013, government and the BCMA announced a suite of new physician incentives and supports to improve primary care services and ensure all B.C. citizens who want a family doctor are able to access one by 2015. The provincewide program, A GP for Me, is based on successful pilots in three communities, which have matched approximately 9,400 patients with family doctors since 2010.

The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two; The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep; And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks.

We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain; Life may have gone on without you, But it will never be the same.
