Hard fought out victory for the Haisla women With ten minutes still remaining on the clock, the Haisla Senior Women’s basketball team were intent on closing their 10 point gap against their rivals in the finals, the Prince Rupert Thunder. For the entire game, the final in the women’s division in the Kitamaat Basketball tournament, the women kept up pace yet couldn’t squeeze the points gap as the seconds wound down. But as the team persevered the points gap grew narrower, and victory at least appeared possible. When the final buzzer sounded, the Haisla girls stood victorious, squeaked into victory by a narrow one point margin, 56-55. Women’s coach Mike Ridsdale said the team had a good mix of leadership and youthful energy, which combined to make for a good rotation of their bench, he said. “In the final game, [Prince] Rupert started by shooting a high percentage,” he said through email to the Sentinel. “Our game plan was to push the tempo, knowing with their short bench they would tire.” He said their early points gap closed because their full court press was effective, and they started making shots they weren’t hitting earlier in the game.

The Haisla Senior Women (in blue) earned a deserved win against the Prince Rupert Thunder in the women’s finals of the Kitamaat Basketball tournament.

Haisla culture leads to PhD for Green Cameron Orr Jacquie Louise Green comes across as a little modest when it comes to her achievement. When we say to her that her parents had brought in news to us that she had received her PhD, and is in fact the first person from Haisla territory to attain such a high educational distinction, she says that her parents might just be more excited than she is. Yet in the way she speaks about the process and the importance of her study you can hear her own excitement come through. Even more, you can tell that she knows that her work speaks well to the entirety of the Haisla culture. She said her PhD was an inter-disciplinary study through the University of Victoria, and her dissertation was called “Learning Haisla Nuuyum, through stories about traditional territory, feasting and lifestyle.” The word ‘nuuyum’ means way of life and laws, according to Green’s parents. Green said that the beginning of the process towards her PhD began when the oolichan stopped running in their territory.

“I was curious about how do we learn oolichan fishing teachings, and the idea also came because I was hearing a lot of cultural teachings from my great-grandmother Annie Paul. “All of my relatives talk about granny’s teachings, and they were very philosophical and theoretical knowledge she had.” Her dissertation, then, came from her life experiences and is all about the life teachings she received from her parents and grandparents, she said. “I was also curious to understand why the cultural teachings were important,” she said. Cultural teachings weren’t readily available growing up, despite the fact she grew up in Kitamaat Village around her relatives. It is one of the lingering effects of residential schools and other tools of colonization, where traditional knowledge was suppressed. Green’s parents Mary and Raymond lived through the residential school system and it affected how they taught their daughter. “They didn’t want me to be punished the same way

they were,” said Green, about why her parents didn’t want her learning First Nations studies. Mary Green points out that taking higher education wasn’t much of an option when she was Jacquie’s age. “Home was safer,” said Mary, also adding that transportation has improved just making the distances to postsecondary schools smaller. “Both my parents went to residential schools and both of them experienced the wrath of the school, so they were punished for being a Haisla person,” said Green. But the system isn’t the same anymore. When Green was set to defend her dissertation she and her supervisor managed the unthinkable; they brought her PhD committee to Kitamaat Village. Her dissertation on Haisla culture would be presented and defended among her own people. Green said that usually research by a student becomes owned by the university, but by having her research presented at home, it kept the ownership to the Haisla. “Coming home and defending it in front of the people and the feast hall, that ownership belongs to Haisla people.” Continued on page 3

Haisla Senior Women Continued from page 1 “Overall the team worked well together resulting in our final win on Sunday,” added Ridsdale. Several teammates received distinctions, including Adelia Paul who won the Cultural Spirit Award during the tournament. The award, according to tournament organizers, was given to Paul for “making the Douglas College basketball team this year, blazing the trail for her teammates and the Haisla Jr. Girls, and overcoming obstacles to go to college.” Ridsdale said that Paul receiving the award “is an example of perseverance and determination.” “Leaving her community, family and friends to further her education and play college ball was a big step, one that she

has successfully managed well in her first year,” he said. The first place win means the Haisla Senior Girls team walks away with a $2,000 prize. Other players of note on the team are Jennifer Nyce who was named a Ladies All Star, and Kailee Gardiner was named Ladies MVP. On the men’s side, the Van City Untouchables placed first with an 82 over 72 point win against the Prince Rupert Lights Out. The Haisla Braves placed fifth to the Gitsan Seniors in sixth. The Haisla Orca Spirits also placed seventh, and the Haisla Jr. Boys took eighth. Daniel Metz with the Haisla Braves was named a Men’s All Star in the tournament. A $2,000 prize also went to first place in the men’s division.

Regional Jacquie Green from page 1 briefs Continued The feedback was tremendous Port Ed

The town of Port Edward is working with the PTI Group to build a work camp in their neighbourhood as well. A deal is in the works by Port Edward to sell a plot of land to the company to establish a work lodge for the numerous proposals for their area as well. Port Edward Mayor Dave MacDonald said that as far as he’s heard there has been very little concern over the proposal. The proposed site is a little ways from the town itself, towards where the cannery is located. It’s out of town a bit but not a lot, he said. “I’ve not had one person come up to me saying they were for or against,” he said. “I think it’s going to enhance the community, with some local jobs for local people,” he added. Legacy benefits, like improvements to the town’s water and sewer treatments, have been discussed as well.

to Green’s presentation from her friends and family. One of the main things she heard was how people could see that Haisla culture could be considered on the same level as academic knowledge. “I was able to illustrate that the knowledge of our people is equitable to institutional and government knowledge,” she said. She notes that her supervisor had to pull a lot of strings in order to bring the committee to the Village. She hopes this event will serve

Jacquie Green

as an example for more First Nations studies to take place in the home communities. “It really matters,” she said. Back to her mom, Mary still remembers Jacquie first setting off from high school, a student who has always been focused on education, and someone who pursued higher education even at a time when not many peers did. She’s seen her rise to achieve her PhD, and even to become the first First Nations person to take a director position in the faculty of Social Work at the University of Victoria, a position she’ll take in July, said Mary.

Water tank to be rebuilt

Cameron Orr It will cost the District $682,645 to replace a water storage tank which collapsed under a snow load in 2011. The price, which includes PST, will also include a $67,300 contingency fund. In October 2011, director of engineering Tim Gleig told the Sentinel that the wood stave tank was isolated from the water distribution system following the collapse, except for occasionally topping it up just to keep the roof from collapsing further. In 2012 the District released a request for proposal for replacement of the tank and received four offers from three companies.

The total approved budget from council was for $750,000. Western Tank won for one of their two proposals, which was initially a total of $722,244, including the contingency. The switch back to the PST from HST did affect the end price but their bolted steel structure was still accepted, in part because the cost would include base certification, which the tank would need. Back in 2011, a company called Interional Tank and Pipe was contacted following the tank’s initial failure, but told the city that the cost to repair the tank, due to its age and condition, would be about half the cost of installing a new one.

A moose that wandered into Smithers’ Safeway grocery store last week unfortunately died in transit, conservation officers said. The incident attracted widespread media attention, and sparked reminders of Kitimat’s own tale of a black bear which wandered into the local Subway restaurant in 2008. Prior to hearing of the moose’s death, we posted a poll to the Sentinel’s Facebook page asking which of the two incidents was more significant in the public’s eyes. Kitimat’s Subway bear is considered the clear winner at this point, with 23 votes for it against seven for the moose.

“We’re just happy Jacquie is one of them, who are trailblazing for our youth,” said Mary. Mary boasts that Jacquie has seen work offers for places as far off as New Zealand. But even mothers have their limits. “So far she hasn’t accepted that and we’re reluctant to let her go too far away.”

Gitxaala Nation claim has nowhere to go With news that the Gitxaala Nation near Prince Rupert had filed a court document to take the government to task over the approval of an export licence to LNG Canada, I had to go dig up the original reasons for decision by the National Energy Board. But first the arguments from the Gitxaala. In their court filing, they are asking for “a declaration that the Governor in Council breached duty to consult owed to the Gitxaala Nation in approving the issuance of the licence,” and that the licence was in fact given without consultation, or at least adequate consultation. In response they want the decision put aside until consultation has been fulfilled regarding the large LNG project set for Kitimat. The problem I see with their case is that the National Energy Board, when it comes to export licences, aren’t taking into considerations impacts to anyone, save for the overall impact to Canada’s energy. That’s because, within the Reasons for Decision document, the NEB essentially has to be convinced that the oil or gas being exported won’t be greater than the supply the country has after its own domestic needs are met. So primarily their job is a mathematical one. Of course, the whole issue behind Rights and Title in the province and country is a complicated one which I won’t pretend to be an expert on. In this case, the Gitxaala believe that tanker traffic would adversely affect their rights and title due to the effects to their communities. Also, because there is a direct link between the project and the company having an export licence, consultation is required, they say. (I’m simplifying to a great degree the arguments.) It would seem to me that the consultation regarding the project and its impacts is something that would take course through the environmental assessment process, which LNG Canada began with the filing of their project description a couple of weeks back. It doesn’t appear to me that this court filing will accomplish much. Whether it was a First Nations or another group, the concerns they brought up in the export licence wouldn’t have moved the board much to consider anything else, unless the argument applied directly to natural gas supply. The Gitxaala may just have to wait for the actual environmental assessment process to air the concerns they have. Of course their concerns are not unreasonable to be bringing up, but they might find they’ll just be spinning their wheels on this one. Cameron Orr

Development, labelled the situation “unacceptable. We have recently learned of allegations that RBC could be replacing Canadian workers by contracting with iGate, which is filling some of the roles with temporary foreign workers. “If true, this situation is unacceptable. Canada is experiencing significant skills and labour shortages in many regions. When there are jobs available, Canadians must always be the first in line for opportunities from employers who are hiring.” Yes, they knew it was true. Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said that under federal rules, no foreign worker can be allowed into Canada if the move displaces a Canadian from their job. “If an employer is playing some kind of a shell game, that is not consistent with the rules,” the immigration minister said. “[The Temporary Foreign Worker Program] is not there for employers to make short cuts to displace Canadians — and if they are trying to do that, they should have the book thrown at them,” he said to the CBC.

Some more words for the world’s ‘negative nellies’ Dear Sir, ‘OMG’ you say, she’s back again and so soon. Well watching council meetings do this to me. April 2’s council meeting was an eye opener. Mr. Oviatt’s information regarding PTI was great. This company sounds like it is something any community would give their eye teeth to have, as Port Edward has welcomed. Mr. Oviatt’s Strawberry Meadows is a well planned, lovely area with great homes being built. Wish we were younger so we could build our dream home

there. I doubt for one minute he would welcome a company in to destroy something he has worked long and hard for and ruin the homes of people who have faith in him — and yes he is one of those terrible people called “construction workers�, who has done nothing but good for this community. I am so sick of the little group of “negative nellies� we have in this community. Yes I know every community has them. They try to run the whole community from their “coffee shop offic-

Well, this is one “old bag� who does not think the way they do and the “silent� majority just are not the loud whiners — maybe they should be. Once again a reminder: if it hadn’t been for construction workers years ago you wouldn’t be here now. Now this group wants an “open town hall� meeting. So we can all listen to the same

We know who you are and know you are against anything new so don’t waste our time. If you spout as much time promoting good as you do whining we’d be in great shape.

A cell phone was key to the rescue of a woman last week who was taken by her boyfriend. At approximately 10:05 p.m., Monday, April 8, the North District Operations Communications received a 911 call indicating a female friend of the caller was being forcibly confined in a transport truck, RCMP North District media relations officer, Const. Lesley Smith said. The 26-year-old female victim in the back of the truck sent text messages to the caller as the suspect drove the truck. The suspect, the victim’s boyfriend, had prevented her from going to work for the past week and had threatened to harm her, the caller told the dispatch centre. The victim informed the complainant via text message the 24-year-old suspect was driving the truck from Williams Lake to Kitimat, B.C. According to the complainant, the suspect warned the victim if she called the police he would kill her. The 911 operator contacted the victim’s cellphone service provider to obtain a GPS location, and the information places the truck south-west of Burns Lake. The information was sent to RCMP detachments along the route. RCMP, who were familiar with the suspect, were able to identify the transport truck he was driving through the company he worked for, Smith said. About 90 minutes after the initial report came in, Smithers RCMP on the lookout for the truck, identified the truck by the company name as it travelled west on Highway 16 on the outskirts of Smithers. RCMP took the suspect into custody and the victim, in the back of the truck, was taken to safety. “These operators demonstrated excellent teamwork and problem solving during this call,” Smith said. “It was due to their focused, heightened response, their knowledge of contacts and use of resources, as well as the skilled coordination and prioritization of the file, that enabled members to locate the suspect so quickly and rescue this woman.” The suspect, who’s name has not been released is scheduled to appear in court in Smithers to face charges of assault, forcible confinement, uttering threats and breach of conditions.

Family seeks to deny killer’s parole The family of a woman stabbed to death in a Terrace 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 December 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 remains a serious threat to public safety and should never be released,” she said. The family has also started an on-

line petition, petitions/national-parole-board-ofcanada-lefranc-no-parole-for-christopher-maurice-alexander-petition


Linda LeFranc 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 LeFranc’s who has been the driving force in opposing his release. As it is, Johnstone said Alexander has had approximately 130 escorted temporary absences and five 14-day unescorted temporary absences. Hard copies of the petition are circulating in Kitimat, LeFranc’s hometown, and in Terrace. 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 Christopher

Two Kitimat boxers recently competed in Quesnel at a regional competition which saw them face down opponents from the host community. The Quesnel Rumble saw Kitimat’s Aiden Abreu and Aaron Lee. Aiden, who said he competed in the welterweight division, faced down and won his bout against a Quesnel boxer, earning the double distinction of being voted the best fight of the night, against 17 other matches. Abreu said it wasn’t necessarily skill which earned that honour. “I think it was because I was out of shape so I let him hit me more than I should have,” said Abreu. “It was back and forth, we just hit each other a lot.” He thinks he could have done better, even after placing first, so he’ll be looking to up his game on April 20 when the

The play, created by Marc Camoletti, is described as the production of a British farce, written by an Italian, and sure to generate laughs. Set in a converted French farmhouse, the story weaves a complicated tale of a man trying to entertain his Parisian mistress. Things quickly get

complicated with mistaken identities and secret relationships. This production is being directed by Tina Watchorn, and will be performed at Mount Elizabeth Theatre. Johnny Cabral, Randy Tait, Diane Duschene, Christine Maggs, Manon Daigle and Lyle McNish round out the comedic cast.

Gitxaala take feds to court process got underway on April 2. The Gitxaala say the government did not give notice the it was considering the licence, did not give the Gitxaala an opportunity to comment on the proposed approval and did not consider or incorporate the views and concerns of the Nation in approving the licence. Those concerns, which include the impact increased marine traffic would have on the environment and the ability of the Gitxaala to carry on activities like harvesting, were outlined in a letter sent to the Ministers of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Transport Canada and the Ministry of Environment on Sept. 14. However, the Reason for Decision issued by the National Energy Board does refer to con-

The Gitxaala Nation is asking the Federal Court to reverse a decision to approve an export licence for LNG Canada, which is planning to build a terminal in Kitimat. A March 26 filing by the Gitxaala names both the Government of Canada and LNG Canada Development Inc. and seeks a judicial review of the decision. The Gitxaala are seeking a declaration that the government breached its responsibility to consult with them about the licence and either a revoking of the licence or a stay on the decision to issue it until consultation has taken place. A licence to export 670 million tonnes of LNG was approved by the National Energy Board on February 4. With the licence in place, the public comment period of the environmental assessment

cerns raised by the Gitxaala. "In reply, LNG Canada stated that the Board is not required to delay issuance of the Licence until approvals for the Terminal are sought or obtained. LNG Canada also submitted that the issue before the Board is whether Canadians will be able to meet their reasonably foreseeable requirements for gas if the license is approved," it reads. The Gitxaala are not the only First Nation group raising a red flag when it comes to LNG exports. In March the Gitga'at Nation of Hartley Bay said it felt the government was pushing through licences without allowing time for the Nation to perform its due diligence. LNG Canada is a collaboration between Shell, Korea Gas, Mitsubishi and PetroChina and is one of three terminals proposed for the Kitimat area.
