City strikes gold with event MINERALS NORTH 2013, which wrapped up after three days April 26, is being described as one of the largest and most successful conferences ever held in the city. More than 900 delegates registered, a number that surpassed expectations for the event held at the Terrace Sportsplex that featured presentations by mining companies, geologists and

a trade show consisting of more than 100 booths. The size of the event, which was the 25th annual Minerals North conference and the largest one ever, filled hotel and motel rooms and restaurants. For a number of the delegates, it was either their first visit to Terrace or the first time they’ve spent any amount of time in the city. Delegates at various

times were entertained, informed and challenged. Former Vancouver Canuck Trevor Linden spoke of motivation in an address to delegates April 26. During remarks to open the conference April 25, Steve Robertson from Imperial Metals, a major sponsor of the conference and the company now constructing the Red Chris copper and gold mine due to open next

year up Hwy37 North, spoke of the mineral potential reaching north of Terrace to the Yukon border. “We’re in a real frontier here,” said Robertson. “The amount of development that is going to go on up there is tremendous,” said Robertson in labelling the region as one of the “most richly endowed mineral areas in the entire world.” Mayor Dave Pernarowski

noted that the first-ever gathering of miners and others was held here in 1989. Kitsumkalum chief councillor Don Roberts and Kitselas chief councillor Judy Gerow spoke of economic development. “The Kitsumkalum quarry is our own mine,” said Roberts of the recentlyopened venture located near the Kitsumkalum village. Gerow welcomed devel-

opment, but “not at a pace that will result in an inevitable boom or bust.” Evan van Dyk from the Terrace Economic Development Authority, a member of the core organizing group, estimated the conference’s economic impact at a conservative $750,000. “I know we spent $300,000 alone as an organizing committee,” he said.

Pipeline hearings end here

SIXTEEN months of hearings into Enbridge’s $5.5 billion plan to build the Northern Gateway pipeline to carry Alberta crude to a marine export terminal at Kitimat are to finish in Terrace next month. At least two weeks has been set aside beginning June 17 to hear oral summations by opponents and proponents of the mammoth project, which has become a national and international issue. Kristen Higgins of the National Energy Board, the federal agency which has been conducting the hearings through a three-member Joint Review Panel, characterized the Terrace sessions as roughly equivalent to lawyers presenting closing arguments in a courtroom. “There won’t be any cross examination. That’s what’s been taking place in Prince Rupert,” said Higgins of the extensive technical sessions, which have now concluded in the coastal city. Those wishing to make closing oral arguments also have to make written arguments and the deadline for those is May 31, she said.

Pipeline hearings wrap up here “Intervenors and government participants will have up to an hour to speak; Northern Gateway will have two hours,” Higgins added of the oral submissions. The written submissions are to ensure that proponents and opponents have the opportunity to fully submit their respective positions, she said. Following the hearings, the threemember panel will gather all of the evidence it has heard over the course of the 18 months and prepare a written report into the viability of the project for the federal government by the year’s end. Conceived in the middle part of the last decade, Enbridge’s Northern Gateway has been labelled by proponents as a way to increase Canada’s energy export industry by providing an outlet to Asian markets. Backers have said Canada isn’t able to take full economic advantage of the Al-

berta oilsands output because pipelines extend to only one customer, the United States. But the project has been heavily criticized by native and environmental groups as being environmentally risky. First Nations have also said the pipeline would infringe on aboriginal rights and title. In addition to worries about leaks from the 1,170 kilometre long pipeline and consequent environmental damage, the Northern Gateway debate has extended to opposition to increasing the number of oil-carrying tankers traveling to and from the coast. The oil export debate has now extended to the provincial election with NDP leader Adrian Dix expressing opposition not only to the Enbridge plan but to the prospect of the Kinder Morgan company

building another pipeline in the south to increase oil exports through Vancouver. The Northern Gateway hearings began in Kitimat and then in Terrace in January 2012 with subsequent sessions taking place in cities across Alberta and in B.C. First Nations, environmental groups, citizens and companies have had the opportunity to present their opinions. The technical sessions in Prince Rupert, which featured the cross examination of not only Enbridge but of also First Nations and others, delved into the engineering specifics of the pipeline project and also of the marine protection measures that would be put into place. Even the hearings themselves have been attacked by Northern Gateway opponents who say the federal Conservative government has already decided it should be built.

Conference to leave a legacy Details such as providing breakfast coupons to delegates for use in restaurants helped spread the dollar value the conference brought to the city, van Dyk said. He paid tribute to the scores of volunteers, saying they helped make the conference more enjoyable for delegates. And he was happy with the turnout of local residents when the trade show portion of the conference was opened up the

afternoon of April 25. “I had no idea that the response would be so great. It was standing room only in there,” said van Dyk. Conference chair Rob Dykman noted that there were only six empty chairs of 800 put out for the main banquet held the evening of April 25 at the Sportsplex. And as many as 100 people unexpectedly arrived to register, he said. The organizing committee will meet

soon to decide how excess revenues will be used. “The requirement is that the legacy be used to support a mining-related cause,” said Dykman. One of the highlights of the conference was a morning motivational talk on April 26 by former Vancouver Canuck Trevor Linden. Minerals North 2014 is being held in Vanderhoof.

Firefighter to view Michigan oil cleanup TERRACE CITY council is sending deputy fire chief Dave Jephson on an Enbridge-sponsored tour to visit the site in Michigan of a 2010 spill from one of its pipelines. The spill into the Kalamazoo River of an estimated 1 million US gallons of oil, which went undetected for hours, increased opposition to Enbridge’s plan to build the Northern Gateway pipeline across northern B.C. Enbridge had offered to fly one council member as part of a 20-person delegation from along the Northern Gateway pipeline route to Marshall, Michigan on May 8 to view the cleanup and speak with local officials. Enbridge spent $820 million on the cleanup by last summer and may spend an additional $175 million, the company reported. It has also been fined by American authorities. “It really came down to who was available from our management team to attend on relatively short notice,” said city administrator Heather Avison of the decision to send Jephson, a trained emergency responder. Council members, in discussing the invitation April 22, cited work obligations and lack of passports as reasons no one from council could go on the trip. “It is a very short trip. It’s very scheduled,” said councillor Stacey Tyers. “... My own perspective is that it’s propaganda.” Tyers said that her sources describe the cleanup effort in the Kalamazoo as flawed. “The last time I spoke to someone about it they said it looked perfectly clean until you stuck something down to the bottom,” she said. Downie said he thinks the tour will provide a valuable firsthand perspective on an important issue. “People will ask the tough questions,” Downie said. “We want to find out the facts.”

DAMAGE TO rail cars carrying household goods was extensive following a derailment on the CN line near Cedarvale in the early morning hours of April 19. Crews worked the rest of the day and into the evening before traffic began moving again April 20.


Rail cars go off track A CN crew spent more than a day clearing and then making repairs to its track following a derailment near Cedarvale in the early morning hours of April 19. As many as 10 storage units, stacked two-high on flatbed cars, went off the tracks on a section of line running alongside the Skeena River. The official investigation is continuing, says CN official Emily Hamer. Residents of the area reported hearing a loud bang around the time of the derailment. Large light units were installed and heavy equip-

ment brought in to cope with the derailment which temporarily closed traffic on CN’s line. “The cars derailed upright and were then moved off the track in order to re-open the line to rail traffic,” said Hamer. “Some containers loaded on the cars did spill onto the right-of-way and down the bank when they were moved off the track, but they did not fall into the river.” She said traffic was restored early April 20. The units were carrying household goods and no dangerous goods were involved. There were also no injuries, said Hamer.

Austin seeks third term By Josh Massey

Josh Massey PHOTO

robin austin is seeking re-election to a third term as the NDP MLA for the Skeena riding.

Wednesday, May 1, 2013  Terrace Standard

Robin Austin tries not to squint for the photo. A doctor once told him that his light sensitivity might be a result of the huge amounts of equatorial sun he absorbed in West Africa where he lived for the first 10 years of his life. Yet Austin, now seeking a third term as the NDP MLA for Skeena, says he sees the world more clearly for his international upbringing. “It opened my eyes to the great differences of language and culture we have in the world,” Austin said. His expression darkens a tad as he recalls a coup d’état in the west African country of Ghana in 1966. “The army took over the airport near where we lived.

I remember hearing gunshots, seeing tanks and being kept in for days. We were rushed home from school. Then my parents telling me the army had taken over. I remember all that.” Two years later, when Austin was 10, the family left for France and he found himself witness to another upheaval. “I arrived in France the same month as the September student riots in Paris. I turned on the TV to see cars burning in the streets and riot police beating down people,” Austin recalls. Overseas during his formative years, he witnessed both the misuse of power and the brutality of sudden change. He says he now appreciates the more civil political movements in Canada such

as opposition to the Enbridge Northern Gateway project. “Enough people decided to get out of their chair to demonstrate through a walk, a rally, on Facebook,” Austin said, noting that typically most Canadian political discontent is expressed around the water cooler. As for his time in Africa, it made Austin aware of the difficulties facing people surviving under a legacy of colonial rule, such as aboriginal people. “We have a responsibility now to effect change and undo some of that damage. The great thing is you see First Nations people are coming out on their own now. They are pushing governments.” Another influential moment in making Austin the

political man he is came upon graduating from university in Glasgow, Scotland in 1981 to massive unemployment under the second year of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Thatcherism had radically cut state industries and services in an attempt to restructure society and reduce inflation, “with a disregard for the social consequences of these changes,” Austin said. The two-time NDP Skeena MLA thinks something similar happened in B.C. since the Liberals were first elected in 2001, with communities like Terrace left in the dust when the wood industry collapsed. Austin says that it has been frustrating being in opposition because the ruling Liberals never listen to the NDP.

Brousseau running hard By Margaret Speirs

Margaret Speirs PHOTO

bc conservative Mike Brousseau also ran for the party in the 2009 provincial election.

mike brousseau leaned in close to Premier Christy Clark as she was leaving BC Liberal Carol Leclerc’s campaign office during a brief Terrace stop April 19. He said a few sharp words as the premier prepared to go on to her next appearance. He had heard two local men were losing their homes because of a dispute between two companies involved in the logging business. Clark, said Brousseau afterward, “choked” and then said she was working on it. “Well, I would like to know what she is doing,” said Brousseau in relaying the encounter. Those who know Brousseau won’t be surprised by the story.

Direct and to the point, Brousseau never hesitates to make his viewpoints known, challenging those with whom he’s speaking. “I will take on [NDP candidate] Robin Austin. I’ve already taken on Christy Clark,” he said. If elected, Brousseau would not be an ordinary MLA. “I’m already MLA, I’m doing the MLA’s job already. Robin Austin is sitting on his hands when I, a normal citizen, can do more than he can as MLA,” said Brousseau. Politics aside, what makes Brousseau tick is summed up in one word: family. A third generation roofer, Brousseau has 12 children and says he’s lost several to the downturn in the economy because they’ve had to move

away to find work. He wants to fix that so they can return. From Michigan, Brousseau’s parents moved to Rosswood in the 1950s. After they split up, his dad moved back to Michigan and his mom stayed on. Brousseau found himself bounced between the two. He graduated from Caledonia, telling the students at a Northwest Community College debate at the start of the election campaign that he was illiterate when he did so. After his father passed away in Michigan and left him an established roofing business there, he got married in 1978 and homesick for the northwest, decided to move back in 1980. He says his wife, Patty, is

the exact opposite of him. “She listens, she has a heart of compassion, to get her upset you really have to do something bad,” he says of his wife of 35 years. Brousseau says they can count on one hand the number of fights they’ve had and still have fingers left. “I’d seen my parents. I said I’d never do that to my wife,” he said of his dad’s harsh words to his mother. Nowadays, several of Brousseau’s children are involved with their father in Mike’s Roofing. It could become known as Mike and Sons now that two of the boys, Levi and Ezra, have been working for him for a few years now.

Now’s the time, says Leclerc By Anna Killen

carol leclerc hopes to make the leap from civic to provincial politics.

Carol Leclerc, Skeena’s BC Liberal candidate, initially thought it would be her husband, Roger, who would be the politician in the family. But in April of 2002, flanked by two of her female colleagues from the Coast Mountains School District, of which she is now the longestserving staff member, she attended a conference where Wendy McMahon, then-Liberal MLA for the Columbia River-Revelstoke riding, was a guest speaker. “Her final comments were, ‘More women need to get involved in politics.’ And the two ladies on both sides of me went, ‘Carol, that’s for you,’” recalls Leclerc. A year and a half later, Leclerc was on Terrace city

council, the start of a nineyear stint. Leaving civic politics in 2011, Leclerc is now working on a masters in communications in part because it is her turn after watching other members of the family earn degrees and because it’s a chance to further her career. “I’m glad I had the opportunity to be on city council because it’s certainly given me a lot of other perspectives in life,” she said. It also helped hone her analytical skills, saying she had to make a lot of tough decisions, including one in 2008 to pass a bylaw allowing slot machines at Chances Terrace. She cast the final vote in favour. “That was really hard,” she said. “You want to make your decisions based on facts, not on emotions and that was defi-

nitely an emotional time for a lot of people and it was really hard.” “When you’re making decisions you’re getting a lot of good information from the staff, they’re putting all the information on the table,” Leclerc adds. “But I have to say, a lot of decisions is just talking to people, and listening to people.” She’s also a critical listener who isn’t afraid to speak up. On a recent trip to Kitimat to attend an open house, she noticed that talk about construction workers was very male-centric, and noted to the woman beside her that they should also be talking about the women who are in construction. But she shies away from the word feminist, preferring instead to say she’s an advocate for women.

“I still feel like it’s a man’s world out there and I’m very happy when I see men that recognize that and they too are advocating for women,” she said. “There’s a lot of smart women out there and they are taking on more leadership roles, becoming more role models, and to see so many women premiers, I think is great.” Her role models include her mother, current city councillor Marylin Davies, who she said advised her before she ran for council, and both of her daughters. “I look at my mom, and she has got such an even keel and a nice disposition about, and she’s always looking for the good in people and I think that she’s been a great role model in that capacity,” she said.

“We’ve never had a single amendment approved by the government,” Austin said. Still, Austin feels he did have an impact when he chaired a legislative committee that examined the effects of open net aquaculture. He toured the coast and was awakened to the “complexity” and “miracle” of salmon, and he says this has made him deeply aware of how important healthy ecosystems are to the economy. Austin’s parents are retired and live in a city on the southeastern coast of England. His father is a retired chartered accountant. Austin’s mother was from Sri Lanka. “She had to leave her country of origin because of political problems. She was allowed to leave with 10 pounds and a suitcase of clothes,” Austin says. He has a younger brother who lives in Australia. “He makes a hell of a lot more money than me,” Austin said of his brother. “He’s a lawyer, for god’s sake.” Austin decided to run for office when the BC Liberal government restricted the collective bargaining rights of B.C. teachers. Working in schools as a social worker and watching what happened was the last straw, he said.

Although he’s busy with his job right now, when the economy crashed in 1982, his family went through some tough times so he understands the struggles people have, he said. The family has also had some heartache. Son Caleb was badly injured in a snowboarding accident and is now in a wheelchair. But he has returned to winter sports and has taken aim at the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Brousseau says he runs his business on honesty and a handshake. “If you don’t do the job you’re paid for, you’re stealing money,” he said in passing down wisdom heard from his father. “One thing I can’t stand is liars,” he said. His good name means more than gold and silver, he said. His mom, Tess Tessier, who recently passed away, advised him to get involved in politics, telling him he should because he’s a good man. He also quotes a phrase that’s another part of his motivation to be involved: what it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing. One thing that needs fixing is the education system, which is inadequate right now, he said. Students need to come out of school knowing how to work, think and have a trade and skills to get a job, he said.

“My youngest daughter really keeps things in perspective when it comes to life – don’t get too serious, because I do get too serious sometimes. And my other daughter keeps me focussed as well, she’s very good with her common sense and seeing things from a different perspective, so it’s nice to bounce things off these kind of women as well.” And Leclerc says she wouldn’t be surprised if her youngest entered politics soon. “I’m watching Christine, and her boyfriend Tyson [Hull] ran last time for city council, and I would not be surprised to see Christine go into municipal elections,” she said. But for now she’s focussed on winning a seat in the provincial legislature where, if she’s elected, she would like to see health and wellness, something she says she focusses on in her own life, become something for politicians to take the lead. “I just think that the government needs to be better role models themselves,” she said, noting that it could be as simple as a few minutes of stretching every hour or a short walk in the fresh air at lunch. “The time disappears when your head is down and you’re going like crazy.”

Dividend PREMIER Christy Clark’s promise made in Terrace during an early morning campaign stop April 19 of a rural dividend for local governments to cushion the impact of large-scale industrial development is the only one to surface so far in this provincial election that has anything to do with the northwest. Details were a bit hazy. Perhaps $25 million a year beginning several years from now. And to be taken from the BC Liberal Prosperity Fund to be chiefly financed by revenues from an LNG industry that remains some distance down the road. The concept isn’t new. Northeastern local governments for years now have been getting annual payments derived from oil and gas revenues there – $32.2 million in 2011 and $35.3 million in 2012. There was no way Ms. Clark could not promise an equivalent while here in Terrace. It would have been bad politics as well as bad public policy. No doubt the NDP will have something similar in mind. How can it not? Even if LNG is not the timely saviour it is made out to be, there are other developments that could fit the model as outlined by Clark. The tricky part for the northwest, regardless of which party forms the government, will be putting substance to the idea. And that needs to start by putting forth a unified northwest position involving all forms of local governments, including First Nations. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

Students benefit from exchanges

he student exchange season is in full bloom when high school students wing off to another province or country on a class or cultural exchange. Their purpose might be to compete in a skill like band, to learn another language while attending school and billeting with a family who lives in the second language, or to tour a foreign country and experience their cuisine and lifestyle. Lengths of exchanges can vary from a few weeks to many months. Yet even after a brief time away, some teens come back with their priorities and outlook so rearranged we scarcely recognize our offspring. At the age of 17, our firstborn joined Canada World Youth for a six month exchange to India. The plan was to divide the time equally between Canada and India but the assassination of Indira Gandhi juggled her travel dates. You can imagine our misgivings, letting our daughter go off in the company of strangers to a distant country wracked by civil unrest. Our girl departed leav-

He lines them up by percentage of fibre content. When young people share lives of families in other cultures, they change in subtle ways. Canada World Youth is known for influencing their values and attitudes, increasing open-mindedness and confidence, as well as allowing them to hone their communication, learning, and organizational skills. She returned robbed of organizational skills, upended

her suitcase on her bedroom floor and for days walked over her clothes as though they were a throw rug. Gone were her coordinated outfits in styles sanctioned by her age group. She wore mismatched colours and gauzy skirts down to her ankles. I fretted, “Our daughter has become a flower child!” She had also become a strict vegetarian – no more bacon, pork chops, fried chicken or hamburgers. A major benefit of letting young people travel is parents’ realization their children are far more capable than we think. Our daughter told of eating foods I couldn’t even spell; had coped with monkeys screaming at the bars of her bedroom window, fed silkworms, and ridden trains notorious for overcrowding. At the time our daughter embarked on an introductory three months with her Indian counterparts at an outdoor camp in the Kootenays, thanks to overprotective parents she had never so much as slept over at a friend’s house. Nonetheless, she undertook the distant sojourn undaunted by my last minute caution – “If things go wrong,


don’t panic. Think first, then seek help.” I might have been counselling myself. This was years before laptops, cell phones and other social media. In India, the participants bunked with families living in rudimentary rural homes. Any notion of phoning Mom and Dad was out. During her months away, we received three letters from her. Well acquainted with anxious parents, Canada World Youth gave us only their main access number. I phoned it once to check on her safety after a flood. With today’s media access, chances are every exchange student carries a laptop or smartphone capable of updating Mom and Dad multiple times a day. Though my memory of her first weeks home have faded, I do recall worrying she might have lost her career drive. I worried needlessly. Although she chose a new career goal, she reset her compass and drove for it full tilt, enrolled mostly in distance education courses. Through student loans and flipping hamburgers, she financed her way to two degrees and eventually a Masters.

The Mail Bag Citizens have a say as well

No room for political deals Dear Sir: Regarding the April 10, 2013 editorial called “Cullen’s idea.” The fact that Skeena – Bulkley Valley NDP MP Nathan Cullen thinks that a collusion of like-minded socialist parties is a good idea, should make all the free thinking, freedom loving good people in Can-

ada shake their heads in wonder, and disgust. Consider the NDP resolution 1-94-13 on the work week set to drive the cost of government up 20 per cent overnight. And the NDP’s other resolutions 3-09-13, 3-23-13 and 3-56-13 designed to continue the demonizing and

persecution of lawful firearms owners. Why are Canadian citizens of good character being treated like and turned into criminals just because they own firearms? Millions of lawful firearms owners are still facing a 10-year jail sentence for a paper work crime thanks

to the Liberals and defended by the NDP and Green Party. They do have some good ideas but not enough to offset the damage of their attempts at the social re-engineering of free people into slaves. Please friends and neighbours, educate yourselves and don’t

fall for it. The NDP in control of a province can be, and will be, devastating. The NDP in control of Canada would be fatal, as highly unlikely as it may be. Should it happen, we will then be know as The Peoples Republic of Canada. Gordon Blakeburn, Terrace, B.C.

Dear Sir: In a recent column on the Forceman Ridge landfill project, Brad North spoke of a “self focus group” he said “wants all of the studies and related spending to start up again, just to put it in someone else’s backyard.” Can he clarify where this group said that it wanted “the majority of taxpayers” of the Kitimat-Stikine regional district to pay another $800,000 to study the proposal? Let’s be clear. The public did not spend the $800,000 on engineers and consultants. In fact the public had no direct say in the regional district’s key decision making and land use planning when this landfill was decided by a regional-district appointed committee 17 years ago. Instead of allowing the practicality and wisdom of the public to guide their decision making, the public was completely shut out. The only two regional district-sponsored open houses to date rank extremely low on the ladder of effective public participation. Mr. North finds comfort though in a “worst case scenario model” that the public hasn’t seen. He and the regional district administration and board continue to look to the experts to adjudicate a very bad siting decision made long ago, and they continue to push forward this landfill proposal at any cost. I say enough. No studies to date have taken into account the cumulative impacts of increased industrial activity occurring and planned for the Lakelse Lake watershed, this landfill included. I don’t believe the consultants and the environment ministry can qualify Brad North’s statement that “the site will have no detectable impact on the environment.” There is nothing wrong with the motivation of ordinary people in bringing up the serious concerns that they have with this proposal. Insulting them, and trying to portray them as a selfish group is completely made up. Leslie Rowlands, Prince Rupert, B.C.

Here’s how to choose the perfect candidate


nce every four years citizens are offered a brief reprieve from the responsibility of endless decisions about matters concerning their kids, their homes, and their work; of just getting along and making ends meet. Once every four years we are inundated with propaganda telling us that all the problems associated with the triumvirate of economy, ecology, and society can be resolved with the stroke of a pencil. Just one X, if placed in the right spot on the ballot, will do the trick. Citizens are not offered a range of policy choices on economic, environmental, social, and cultural matters, or choices on how to finance their respective policy preferences. Decisions on issues of any kind, if they were left to citizens, would require an endless string of referendums. The vote on May 14, all propaganda aside, is not a referendum on issues, it is an

election. Citizens are asked to pick one person from a list of names given on the ballot. If we are to believe the propaganda, only one group of likeminded people performing under the direction of one leader can have the answers to all our worries and the solutions to all future problems. The proposition is absurd! Reality has no beginning and it has no end. Reality is a succession of surprises. All our problems arise out of only three circumstances: things we could not have anticipated, things we should have but failed to anticipate, and things we saw coming but ignored. Ours would be a problem-free society if there were a political ideology blessed with infinite wisdom and headed by a leader with impeccable foresight. We would not have shortages of skilled workers or unemployment. We would not have shortages of hospital beds or jail cells.

g u e s t c o mm e n t

ANDRE CARREL We would not be running deficits and we would not experience disasters of any kind because all of this would have been anticipated and appropriate measures would be in place to avoid and prevent such problems. Society is made up of individuals, some are cleverer than others, some are luckier than others, but, without exception, we all depend

on one another. Daniel Defoe did not chronicle the life of a self-sufficient man; Robinson Crusoe is a fictitious character. Democracy’s philosophy recognizes that we all depend on one another, that we are responsible for each other and that we are all equal. The goods and services we depend upon to survive are produced, arranged, and provided by others, by individuals performing tasks and being responsible not only to themselves, but to society as a whole. Coordinating all of these efforts will be the job and responsibility of the assembly of the candidates we are about to elect. Democracy’s ethos is not to distinguish winners from losers; it is to compose a mosaic from society’s multitude of political colours. When we vote for a candidate to serve as a member of the Legislative Assembly for the next four years, we take responsibility for

the decision we make. Our responsibility is to decide which candidate listed on our ballot is the most likely to listen to what others, also elected to serve in the legislative assembly, will have to say on the subject of coordinating society’s needs, ambitions and activities. The key question is: which candidate is the most likely to search for common elements among legitimate albeit conflicting political views and interests? Party membership and leadership are mere window dressing. What matters in our decision is to find the candidate who is most likely to respect the views of others and set aside party affiliation and personal ideology to work instead at crafting compromise responses to social, environmental and economic challenges as they arise in the years to come. The candidate who leaves me with that confidence will get my X. Andre Carrel is a retired public sector administrator living in Terrace, B.C.

Logs moving again from Yaorun yard NORTHWEST LOGS are once again heading to the coast from the Yaorun Wood log sort yard on Keith Ave., with a contract dispute between Yaorun and one of its contractors, Bryco Enterprises, quietly settled late last week. “Bryco has satisfactorily resolved its disputes with Yaorun and will immediately withdraw all of its claims against Yaorun,” reads a joint statement released by the two companies on April 26. Activity at the yard was stalled for over a month with Yaorun and local contractor Bryco Enterprises, involved in a contract dispute over money owed to Bryco. Earlier this month, Bryco owner Bryan Halbauer put his heavy machinery, parked on an immediately adjacent property, up for sale in order to pay his workers. Chinese-owned Yaorun had hired Bryco to set up operations on property it leased from the city. But the two companies had a falling out when Yaorun questioned invoices submitted by Bryco concerning costs and the amount of equipment the latter had working on the property. “The parties agree to settle the claims, differences, and disputes between them for an undisclosed amount,” reads the April 26 state-


DAVE O’LEARY, left, Seabridge Gold president Jay S. Layman and Hawkair’s Rod Hayward celebrate joint announcements at a Minerals North 2013 barbecue April 26.

Calgary flights to start

AIR TRAVELLERS received a piece of good news at a closing Minerals North 2013 barbecue held at the Northwest Regional Airport April 26 with news that Central Mountain Airlines/Hawkair is to begin a Terrace to Calgary flight in June. Hawkair general manager Rod Hayward told the group of 200 or so delegates at the barbecue that the new service will be provided on a Dash 8-100 aircraft with 37 seats. The popularity of the current Central Mountain Airlines Beechcraft 1900 service to Prince George, that takes 19 passengers, was one reason for the addition of a larger aircraft. The Monday to Friday service will depart from Calgary in the morning, stop in Prince George and carry on to Terrace for a total time of less than three hours. Flights from the opposite direction depart Terrace in the afternoon and arrive in Calgary early in the evening. “It’s exciting to see the mining coming back,” Hayward said during his announcement speech, adding that now Terrace residents who work in Alberta will have a more direct flight home without having to detour through Vancouver. Calgary is also the hometown for a number of energy companies looking to develop a liquefied

Training boosted THE CLOSING Minerals North 2013 barbecue also featured a donation made by a mining company to Northwest Community College. College official Dave O’Leary and Seabridge Gold president Jay S. Layman spoke of the recent $100,000 donation made by the company to the college to purchase and outfit a trailer that can be taken to rural and remote locations for skills training. O’Leary described the training trailer as “a completely flexible solution” that will allow people in remoter communities to learn skills without uprooting from their families. Layman echoed O’Leary’s enthusiasm about the potential and necessity of training locally, and added that by starting early workers will be ready to take on management positions as well. Seabridge Gold has the KSM gold-bearing property near Stewart and is advancing toward receiving environmental clearance. A mine life of 55 years is being forecast.

natural gas industry in the northwest. As well, AltaGas, which now owns Pacific Northern Gas and which is spending $1 billion building three run-of-river hydro projects northwest of Terrace also has its headquarters in the Alberta city. Hayward said the connection will also make it easier for passengers connecting to and from northeastern B.C.

ment. And Yaorun has been released from any liability in connection with the claim. Yaorun said it missed a deadline to export one ship-load of logs from Prince Rupert. Yaorun says logs are now once again being sorted and transported to Prince Rupert, where they will eventually be shipped to China. No logs have been exported as of yet. And while Yaorun had earlier expressed it wished to continue working with Bryco as one of its main contractors, the log yard is now being manned by individuals hired by Yaorun, not one main contractor. But the release says all is well between the two companies. “The parties wish each other continuing success in their respective business ventures,” it reads. Bryco’s machines are still for sale, with Halbauer saying he is undecided about continuing work as a contractor. Of the two loaders in operation at the log yard, one is owned by Yaorun, the other by one of the individuals working at the yard. The log yard, once part of the Skeena Celluose complex in Terrace, is now owned by the city and being leased to Yaorun.

50/50 Draw Terrace Trade Show 2013 anna killen PHOTO

PIECES OF heavy equipment were dug up at the Evergreen community garden on the southside last week.

Gardeners find a surprise By Anna Killen

It was a modern archeological dig at the Evergreen community garden on the southside in Terrace last week as nearly four tonnes of scrap equipment metal were extracted from the ground near the north fence. The metal was discovered while a contractor the garden society had hired was digging trenches for a new water system. “We had no idea what we were going to encounter,” said Green Thumbers president Barb Tetz. “Last time when we dug in the water system for the first five hydrants, it was all river

silt with rock. This time when I saw what they had to dig through to get that first curbstop in, I panicked. Because I looked down and it was boulders all the way down…What are we going to encounter in this one [I thought]?” What they encountered was a large collection of metal, origins unknown, and more than they’d anticipated when the first bit was discovered—when it was finally extracted the pile was taller than Tetz herself. “Pieces and pieces of bulldozer track, wheels, an engine,” she said, noting that they are keeping an old gasket, a gasket ring and one of the wheels to use for the

fire pit setup. The rest of the metal is being salvaged, with the money returning to the garden. “It was a collaborative effort to get it out, which is absolutely wonderful,” said Tetz. “There’s also more metal being donated and that money will go back to the gardens too,” she said. Gopher Contracting, West Point, ABC Salvage and Finning Cat, which is adjacent to the garden, provided the equipment and labour to get the metal out. “It’s out and I’m glad,” said Tetz. “This is the beauty of what’s happening within gardening in Terrace, people are pulling together

to make it happen.” The extraction process, which lasted all afternoon on April 24, was a sight to behold, with a large piece of equipment used to extract the find tipping up on its nose at points. “The tracks were so jammed down in there under the earth and interwoven with each other, you’d pull one out that was up at the surface and then it would hook onto another one,” said Tetz. Two tracks, about 10 or 11 feet down, needed to be left in the ground because removing them could have broken the new water system—but they’re down so far and metal leaches down, so they don’t pose a prob-

lem. A handful of garden society volunteers, on site working to complete the garden and ready it for the growing season, got to witness the extraction, with plenty of jokes to go around. “We’re really good at growing caterpillars at this garden,” laughed one in reference to a heavy equipment manufacturer’s name. “Oh yeah, and look at how nice the soil is, just full of iron,” replied another as the work went on.

Skilled Caregiver Needed A pre-teen boy in Terrace needs the help of a skilled caregiver willing to provide a caring, stable foster home. This young person needs an emotionally mature, patient caregiver able to serve as a mentor, set boundaries, avoid power struggles and help manage complex behaviours. Training and/or experience working with youth and an interest in mechanics or other hands-on tinkering would be assets, but most important is a desire to make a difference in the life of a young person. The caregiver must be prepared to work as part of the youth’s care team, be willing to learn additional skills and gain a solid understanding of the youth’s specific needs including attachment issues resulting from loss and trauma. Preference will be given to candidates able to provide a strong male rolemodel and /or a setting in which the youth is the only child.

City extends brew pub’s purchase option

Josh massey PHOTO

■■ More Idle No More First Nations from several bands and other demonstrators gathered outside the Minerals North 2013 conference April 25 to remind delegates of aboriginal land rights and responsible environmental stewardship.

Go-ahead given to Sunshine Inn THE SUNSHINE Inn Executive Suites was given the go-ahead by council on April 22 and is now one step away from construction. Developer Kim Tran’s March application for a variance permit passed third reading, securing his plan for the four storey, 90-100 room hotel with 13 or 14 condominiums on the top floor and a restaurant. The back-to-back lots at 4812 Hwy 16 and 4813 Lazelle Ave., which the development will occupy, are currently zoned C3 Commercial (Highway) and at 65 feet, the structure will be twice what is usually permitted. Adjacent properties were notified of the variance, and none have responded with concerns to date, said director of development services David Block. The hotel and condos will span just over two acres of land with frontage on Hwy16 beside Kalum Tire and on Lazelle Ave. beside the Terrace Bowling Alley. The application is now in the hands of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to approve based on an analysis of how it will affect traffic flow in Terrace. Pending the provincial government’s approval, the project should be under construction sometime this summer, Block said.

Tran spoke during the correspondence section of council about the hard work that went into getting the project plans put together. Sunshine Inn Executive Suites is one of two major hotel developments planned for Terrace. Last week, the city sold the old Co-op land on Greig Ave. to Calgary developer Superior Lodging. Superior has plans to develop a hotel that will also contain 90-100 rooms and retail space, tentatively scheduled for next spring. The Sunshine Inn proposal began as a hotel, but the new layout would see an additional 14 condo units added to the top floor. Councillor Bruce Bidgood said previously that he is excited about this development plan for “small units to be owned by individuals or couples who don’t want a nuclear house that was built in the ‘70s.” This application is in line with council’s push to follow through with housing action plan recommendations, Bidgood said. The first Sunshine development in Burns Lake opened 13 years ago, Smithers followed four years ago and one in Houston is nine months old. The development has been touted because of its location near the downtown core and the fact that it has frontage on the highway.

The City of Terrace has extended the Skeena Brewing Company Ltd.’s option to purchase a portion of the former Co-op property for an additional six months, announced the city April 24. The Skeena Brewing Company, which signed the option agreement with the city April 25, 2012 intends to purchase the northwest corner of the property, close to the Western Financial Group and Staples, to construct a micro-brewery and pub.. The signed agreement last year came along with a deposit by the company on the purchase price of the lot, which is $96,000. The company is a group of local investors: Greg Linton, president and co-founder of the company, Will Spat and Julien Rice.

Tahltan oppose mine plan in the Klappan FOUR MEMBERS of the Tahltan First Nation staged a silent protest at the Minerals North 2013 conference while an official from Fortune Minerals spoke about a controversial coal mining project on Tahltan traditional territory April 26. The four held up pictures of themselves getting arrested in 2005 after Fortune successfully received a BC Supreme Court injunction to end a Tahltan blockade preventing access to the Klappan area. Fortune acquired the rights to the Klappan anthracite coal property in the last decade and has been looking for financing and environmental approval to develop a project worth nearly $800 million. The company in 2010 sold 20 per cent of the project to South Korean steel giant POSCO and renamed it the Arctos Anthracite Project to give it a fresh start. It has also submitted a revised project to provincial environmental authorities. The Tahltan and others call the Klappan the Sacred Headwaters because it contains the headwaters of the Stikine, Nass and Skeena rivers. Of particular concern is the Fortune plan to use open pit mining to remove the

Carl Kottmeier, Fortune’s Arctos project manager who was speaking from the conference stage when the four Tahltan walked up and stood underneath him, said the project would consist of four small pits, becoming one large one as the mine’s life went on. The total size of the open pit would be 730 hectares and the maximum area of the pit, camps, buildings and airstrip would be 4,000 hectares, he said. But Kottmeier also said there would not be any tailings pond in

the traditional sense of hard rock mining requiring acid chemicals to extract ore, saying the coal being extracted would be washed by water before being loaded onto railcars for export through Prince Rupert. “We will ensure the water quality has been tested and inspected” prior to release, he said. “We will not be producing a slurry tailings and we will not require a tailings pond.” There will be waste rock from the project but it will be coal that can’t be separated from rock, he said.

And he said the project won’t affect the Stikine or Nass watersheds. Based on passing an environmental assessment, Fortune wants to have its operation going by 2016, resulting in two trains going to Prince Rupert every three days. It would need to build a rail line on an existing rail bed south of its project to connect to an existing line for the trip. Fortune estimates it has reserves for a 25year mine life, employing 500 people at peak operations and another 1,000 indirectly.

Welcome to One (wacky) Mad Night By MARGARET SPEIRS


mr. hyde (Nathan Struyk) places this object on the head of house servant Depression (Ocean Bingham) and challenges a couple who came over on the Mayflower to shoot it off in Centennial Christian’s production of One Mad Night.

COME AND have One Mad Night with Centennial Christian drama students for lots of laughs, twists and turns. “They can expect laughter and intrigue and some mistaken identities,” says drama teacher Jo Anne Voogd, “It’s a good farce so there’s overdoing of everything,” she said. Kenton Veldman is Don Cutter, a young playwright who, along with his proverb-quoting valet Wing, played by Joshua Sexton, goes to a deserted and haunted Cutter Mansion to finish writing his play in peace and quiet. However, he finds the house inhabited by a number of strange people: Mr. Hyde (Nathan Struyk), a couple who sailed on the Mayflower John and Priscilla Alden (Cole Nutma and Hanna Veldman), Lady Macbeth (Krystal Behnke), a damsel in distress, a crooked lawyer and a “hit man” among others, who create chaos for him in this mystery farce thriller. It’s quite a departure from the students’ play last year Les Miserables or the first play the drama club did in 2002, the Hobbit. Voogd said she picked it after reading through 11 plays. “It made me laugh out loud,” she said about why she chose it, adding that she likes to have change up the types of plays from year to year. The play is part of the course, Acting 10, 11, 12, and from year to year, students may take on different roles, acting one year and then choosing a crew job the next year, for example. “I really encourage students who are serious about fine arts to try to do different aspects of the production so they get a well-rounded experience,” said Voogd. This year, two alumni from the program have returned to help: Peter Ramsay, who played Peter Pan a couple of years ago, is back to build the set and Voogd’s daughter, Krista, is assistant director. For more details on the production, including dates and where to buy tickets, see City Scene on page 13.

Parkside challenge targets good habits PARKSIDE STUDENTS are challenging themselves to change their habits and reach goals for a more healthy life. “It started off with ‘what does 20 days mean to you,” said teacher Trygve Sort. “Changing habits too is another big thing,” he said. Part of the 20-day challenge involves exercise but also to work on a healthy mind and making healthy choices, said Sort. “A lot of the kids, I guess you say exercise wasn’t their thing in school,” said Sort. “So just to get them to step outside their comfort zone and try something new,” he said about one of the ideas behind the challenge. “Every Monday the school does a short assembly and watches a few clips and goes over a few things,” said Sort.

One group chose to go to the dojo and one group is bellydancing, another does yoga and another walks or hikes. “Some students definitely surprised me,” said Sort. Some students have weight issues and they’re getting into exercising and are tracking how their weights are improving. Along the way, students are coming up with quotes and inspirational videos to share with their classmates and the teachers are taking part too, said Sort. “The cool thing is the staff’s coming with motivational videos and quotes too,” said Sort. As the days have passed, more students have become involved in the challenge and staff are keeping track of how many make it though the entire 20 days.

Garbathon volunteers clean up GARBATHON VOLUNTEERS numbering about 225 helped clean up the city and area April 21. “It was a really good day, just a really full awesome fantastic day,” said Kerry Giesbrecht, president of the Greater Terrace Beautification Society, adding one large dumpster brought out for the event was filled up by 1:30 p.m. “I think we probably had less pickers than last year but we had really good pickers. They were very thorough, and with CN’s help, we did as much as we could along the tracks too,” said Giesbrecht. Volunteers were able to clean up the CN Rail tracks through town thanks to the help of a track supervisor, who supervised the group, she said. Some stuff was hauled out of a couple of local creeks, such as a rusty shopping cart, rusty hunks of metal and a car bumper, she added. Children won all the prizes that were offered, which was good, she said. Not all the areas tagged for cleanup were done, but with 20 or 30 more families next year, all the spots could be covered, she said. The missed areas include all of Graham Ave,, Kenney St. from the lights at Hwy 16 down to Graham Ave., along Kalum Lake Drive to the cemetery, and from the Macs store in Thornhill, right up Old Lakelse Lake Dr. to the Thornhill chris gee unloads a truckload of garbage picked up April 21.

Norma Beatrice Bellamy

(nee McKinlay)

November 26, 1921 April 1, 2013

It is with a great deal of sadness that our family announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, great and great-great grandmother, Norma. Norma was predeceased by her husband Arthur, (Feb.. 2005) and her daughter Elizabeth (Betty) Paquette (2002). Born of pioneer parents in Youngstown, A1berta, Norma was the elder daughter of 4 boys and 4 girls. Norma and Art married in 1941 in Bonnyville, AB and farmed in that area until the call of the west took them to Terrace in May of 1956. They lived in Terrace until 1973 when they retired to Kelowna. Mother worked first at Traveller’s cafe and then the Terrace Co-op where she stayed for 6 years only leaving to help Art run Art’s Chevron Service. Mother operated a small coffee shop attached to Art’s garage. She was known for her wonderful pies, her laughter and her welcoming personality to her local customers, travellers and neighbours of Lakelse Lake Road. Mother played softball for years and helped establish the Terrace Sr. women’s softball team in Terrace. She was also an avid bowler. Upon moving to Westbank, Norma developed a ceramics studio where she taught many the art of ceramics. They lived for several years in Armstrong before moving to Nanaimo where Art and Norma finally really retired in 2002 where Art left us in 2005. Norma then moved to live in Lake Cowichan for severa1 years before returning to Terrace to be with family in 2011. Norma will be missed by her many nieces and nephews. She was the last of her siblings to depart to a better place. Norma leaves to mourn her elder daughter Elsie Bellamy; son Larry (Laurelle) Bellamy and daughter Carol Tencza. May she rest in peace in the joy of reunion with her many family members who predeceased her.

Cal girls kick season off on top Soccer season is in full swing at Caledonia, with two near perfect play days for the Girls AA team already under the team’s belt and another two play days to go before zones on May 10 and 11. The first, hosted in Prince Rupert April 13 saw the team win both of their games, 4-0 against Charles Hays and 7-0 against Queen Charlotte Secondary. And the second, hosted here in Terrace April 20 saw the Kermodes win against Kitimat 6-0 and draw Smithers 1-1. “They played pretty well,” said coach Duncan Stewart. His team is made up of 19 girls, a balance of veterans and new recruits, and he says they’re spread out evenly between Grades 10, 11, and 12. The northwest AA league is comprised of Prince Rupert, Terrace, Kitimat, Smithers, but the team sometimes plays the Hazelton A team and, as they did April 13, the Queen Charlottes’ team. This is his 13th season coaching the Cal girls squad, a program he’s seen develop handily over the years, with Cal heading to provincials for the last seven years in a row. “The quality of the girls just from the rep team programs through the youth soccer definitely feeds the

system,” he said. “It’s been a good cohort year after year. We always lose key players, but then seem to get new ones in again.” If the team wants to make it eight in a row for provincials, they’ll have to figure out a way to beat Smithers, traditionally the team’s main rival, as they’ve done in the past. “Definitely Smithers seems like the team to beat,” he said. And with only a few more weeks to go in the compressed season— there are typically five play days and the teams try to squeeze in a couple of games during the week to end up with 10 or 12 games—as always, they’ll have to figure this year’s team out soon. “By the end of it you’re sort of gelling [as a team],” he said of the short season. “You play all of the same teams week in and week out, so you sort of figure each other out and what you need to do.” And while he hopes to see his team to another provincials, he’s not making any promises just yet. “It’ll be a nailbiter between us and Smithers, it always is,” he Anna Killen PHOTO said. “You need a bit of luck to get through as well, and we’ve had that CAledonia AA Kermodes soccer players Aimee Qualizza, left and Kassidy Bannister maneuver for the last few years...It’ll be a good against Smithers at the Cal hosted play day at Christie Park on April 20. The game ended in a 1-1 tie for the two rivals. game.”

■■ They’ve got a new fan The North Coast Nightmares Roller Derby team are gliding into the upcoming season a little easier, following a $2,500 donation to the team from local millionaire Bob Erb to cover travel costs for the team. “It’s a huge relief for our team,” said the team’s Tarea “Dream Warrior” Roberge. “We have worked very hard to get to the point where we can travel and host games, and also to be recognized by our community as a sports team.” The team already has a few travel dates booked, and a home game planned for August. The team visited Erb at his 4/20 rally on April 20 to thank him.

Six Local kickboxers are hoping to make their way to nationals in Ottawa mid-May after qualifying at provincials on April 13. Once in Ottawa, they’ll be competing for a spot on Team Canada, competing at worlds in Italy this winter. But they need funding first—they already have one sponsor, Bob Erb, who has been donating to sports clubs over the last few weeks. He gave $3,000, $500 for each athlete. The team consists of at risk youth who are part of the non-profit program led by Amber Pipe in order to have an alternative way to spend their time and set goals to reach. Look for more on these young athletes in next week’s The Terrace Standard.

Bye, bye, birdie: tournament closes badminton season On April 12th, Thornhill Junior Secondary School once again became the venue for the Terrace Badminton Club’s Open Tournament that saw 60 junior and 40 adult participants from all over the northwest compete for the club trophies. “It was great, we had a significant turnout,” said club president Norm Parry. “Everyone went away happy.” The tournament happened the week after Terrace players bussed to Prince George for the Prince George tournament, as is the yearly tradition. While Prince George players took the top spots in the adult league, which marked the 47th year for the trophies, Terrace’s junior players held

their own. In the Junior Girls U12 Doubles category, with a Leah Julseth victory. Julseth also teamed up with Sarah Kroeker to win the Junior Girls U12 Doubles. Bronwen Juergensen and Hannah Resch came out on top in the Junior Girls U16 Doubles category, and Joshua Brown and Logan Clunas took the Junior Boys U12 Doubles category. Liam Clunas had the win in the Junior Boys U14 Singles, and aided Joel Kroeker to win the Junior Boys U14 Doubles. In the Junior Boys U19 Singles, Jake Blix took the top spot, and became the third Terrace player with a double

win with his Junior Boys U19 Doubles win alongside Graham Peters. This marked the end of the season for Terrace’s badminton league. The league has been one of the community groups making use of the Thornhill Junior Secondary gym since its closure last year. The club is just one of a number of groups using the gym, in cooperation with the City of Terrace and the Coast Mountains School District. “It went really well,” said Parry. “We had good cooperation between the clubs in making it work.” Parry says the program has been a success. The gym was in full use, he said, and everyone did their part keeping the space clean. It also gave the badminton club

the opportunity to branch out and offer senior badminton clinics one day a week. But it did mean the club had to raise fees in order to cover operating costs, although expenses at the gym this year probably weren’t as expensive as they might be in future years because of low snow removal costs. Twenty-five to 30 kids were turning out for the junior nights, he said, and that wouldn’t have happened without the coordination between different community groups to keep the space in use. “It was touch and go whether we could even have a club,” he said. Now, club members take a break from badminton to enjoy outdoor spring and summer sports, but they’ll be back on the court in the fall.

asque Creek is ruined. Since nobody appears to be making salmon streams anymore, this is a damn shame. It’s also shameful that a large chunk of wilderness through which the creek flows is no longer accessible to you and me. This is what happens when you privatize crown land. Before the creek and the irreplaceable habitat it nourishes were being turned inside out, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) could have stepped in and used the power of the Fisheries Act to stop the project. Failing that, DFO had the opportunity to demand mitigation in the form of spawning channels that could have been constructed at the company’s expense once the destruction was underway. But with an ultra right wing majority government that sees the protection of wild things as an impediment to industrial growth – and is presently dismantling the Fisheries Act and gutting the already meagre ranks of DFO’s habitat division – in power in Ottawa, that wasn’t going to happen. The ruin of Dasque and Middle Creeks is being done under the pretext of acquiring hydropower. It’s one of many Independent Power Projects or IPPs compromising wild salmon streams throughout our province. The Campbell government (of which our current premier was an important part of until the BC Rail Scandal burst into public view) pushed IPPs zealously despite the skepticism of the experts at BC Hydro who

Johnson bags a win at U16 Male BC Cup It will still be another week before we know if any Terrace players will be heading to the provincial camp for the next step in the Team BC selection process, but Terrace’s Hunter Johnson was on the team that captured the 2013 Male U16 BC Cup in Salmon Arm two weekends ago. Team Flyers saw a 4-3 victory over Team Canucks in the Championship Game. The Flyers came out strong with a goal midway through the first period and another early in the second. But with 31 seconds remaining in the second, the Canucks got on the board with a shorthanded goal. The Canucks continued to push in the third period and tied it up.  But Johnson pushed the Flyers back into the lead with just over four minutes to play. But that lead was short-lived, as the game quickly became tied at three and headed into overtime. Overtime settled nothing, so a shootout was required and Flyers prevailed, winning the shootout 2-1 over the Canucks to capture the 2013 Male U16 Championship. “The tournament was a once in a lifetime experience,” said Johnson. “I enjoyed meeting new friends and playing at a high level of hockey.” He says he has no idea if he will make the team, as the skill level of all players is so high, everybody has a chance. “I hope someone from Terrace makes the cup to represent Terrace and the northwest,” he said. Johnson’s Bantam AA teammates Connor Onstein and Colten Stark also attended the U16 Camp, as did Carter Shannon, who has been playing in Abbotsford. Next up the 2013 Male U16 Provincial Camp that will be held July 10-14, 2013 in Nanaimo, B.C.

was top aluminum dog for years thanks to cheap power and lax environmental laws. At the same time they were making huge profits selling power to Hydro. A few years ago the BC Utilities Commission ruled that the original agreement signed by the aluminum giants and the province did not allow them to continue making out like bandits as they had in the past. That ruling was overturned by the Campbell government and also went scandalously underreported by B.C.s privately owned media (which is almost all of B.C.’s media). The critical difference between today’s provincial right wingers and their predecessors is that the former are adherents of right wing trickle down economic theories of Friedman and Hyack as first implemented by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan. These principles are so right wing they would have made Adam Smith blanch. The Savings and Loan and Enron scandals, and the recent collapse of Wall Street, have proved that such nonsense simply does not work. The Socreds, right wingers to be sure, believed their ultimate duty was to do well by the people of the province. The Liberals, who should change their party name to “the Corporatist Party of BC,” believe government should kowtow to multinational corporations while privatizing everything in sight. IPPs, fish farms, raw log export, resource giveaways, and demise of profitable government utilities are a consequence of this bogus ideology.

■■ Enbridge inspires local art THis Mural appeared under the old bridge recently, and led to a spirited online debate about politics and art. The piece is situated on the south side of the river on one of the bridge supports and is about 12 feet wide by seven feet tall. Apparently this graffito was done at night using head lamps and flashlights, and touched up during the day.

TWO YOUTHS were arrested after Terrace RCMP was called to Rolcan Fabrications on Kenworth St. for its third break-in during the week of April 15. A man said he chased four youths off the property on the night of April 19, said police. The man returned later to tell police that he just saw two of the youths at a nearby residence. Police spoke with the youths, decided they were responsible for the break and enter and arrested them. Tools were recovered. Police continue to investigate.
