PTI CEO responds to some concerns Cameron Orr Despite the remarks from mayor Bill Streeper in last week’s Sentinel, PTI Group CEO Ron Green is confident that their proposed workers lodge will, in fact, be beneficial to local businesses. That’s because the nature of work in Kitimat versus what happens in the Fort Nelson area are quite different. “This is a different type of worker,” he said of Fort Nelson. “This is a fly-in, fly-out kind of guy.” PTI’s proposed development, by comparison, aims to integrate better into the surrounding community. “[Ours] won’t look like...something that doesn’t really conform with community standards,” said Green. And he’s certain that at some point during a worker’s stay at PTI’s lodge they will have reason to come into town. While PTI at past public meetings have noted their other lodges sometimes have convenience store facilities, it’s not something they as a company seek to offer themselves. “We’d prefer actually not to do that,” said Green, saying its better for workers to get into the communities and off-site sometimes. “We’re all happier if we have outlets for recreation and everything else.” The lodge itself will also provide job opportunities for local people. He said if they have a facility of around 250 people, for their first proposed phase for Kitimat, there would be around 25 to 35 people working on site. If it gets to the full 2,000 people, over 200 people would need to work for the lodge. And Green said for the company it works far better to hire people from the local community rather than bringing people in from out of town. “We find that, just over time, we’ve done nothing but enhance what happens in those smaller communities,” said, referring to some Alberta locations, such as in the municipality of Conklin, Alberta, or inside a First Nations community north of Fort McMurray. The Sentinel also asked about opportunities for integration of local Continued on page 2

Candidates talk issues at forum

Three candidates competing for the position of MLA for the Skeena riding in the upcoming May 14 election presented their views and responded to questions at the all candidates forum held May 1 in Kitimat’s Mount Elizabeth Theatre. From left: incumbent NDP Robin Austin, Conservative candidate Mike Brousseau, and Liberal candidate Carol Leclerc. Josh Massey Kitimat teachers came out in force to Wednesday’s all-candidates forum making education one of the hot debating points of the event. Facing off for the position of Skeena MLA were firsttime Liberal candidate Carol Leclerc, second-time Conservative candidate Mike Brousseau and incumbent NDP Robin Austin, vying for a third term. The forum was held in a

quarter-full Mount Elizabeth Theatre on a night of vigorous rain and sleet. In his closing remarks NDP candidate Robin Austin said it was a shame so many Kitimat residents “were too busy watching the hockey game” to make the debate. Those who did attend made sure to get the candidates pinned and wriggling, with several education-related questions fired by audience members wearing “teachers vote” shirts. Austin said during his open-

ing statement that “Eighty per cent of new jobs will require post-secondary education,” and he continued to pick apart the Liberal government’s record on eduction, saying that current Liberal party leader Christy Clark was in her time “the worst minister of education in B.C.’s history.” Leclerc responded by defending the gains in education that the Liberal government has made recently. “There is definitely rec-

ognition that there are issues,” she said in rebuttal to Austin’s jabs, citing the recent Learning Improvement Fund and an injection of $650,000 into school district 82 as evidence of Liberal change for the better. Leclerc referred to a study that placed Canada fifteenth in the world in eduction. “I don’t think it’s that bad,” she said. Brousseau highlighted his own position as director of a small school with an average Continued on page 2

Joint action The Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Canadian Coast Guard held joint training exercises with the United States Coast Guard and the United States Air Forces in Prince Rupert last week. In a release, the Canadian Navy said all the listed branches were participating in a Search and Rescue Exercise. Residents in Prince Rupert were expected to see an increase in military activity coming from their airport during that time, and more ships visible from shore. According to the release, “The purpose of the training is to exercise the ability of rescue personnel in both Canada and the U.S. to work together in responding to a maritime emergency.”

He also said the fact that Conservative party leader John Cummins was a teacher himself means that students will be taken care under Conservative rule. Brousseau laid it all on the line, not holding back from emotional displays. “My great grandfather was scalped in northern Manitoba. I know how to take the pain and turn it into something beautiful,” he said. Austin was more tactical and workmanlike, presenting himself

as an experienced leader confident of his party’s edge, someone to represent the people’s wishes against selfish corporate interest. Leclerc demonstrated her concern that an NDP government would bog down industrial development opportunities in red tape. On the topic of the Kitimat Clean proposal to build an oil refinery within the boundaries of the Skeena riding, Leclerc expressed tentative support, saying she had concerns about how it would affect air quality in the region, while Austin said he thought it made more sense to process the bi-

tumen in Alberta. Responding to Austin, Brousseau said that the complexity of processing bitumen into multiple products would overextend Alberta’s industrial capacity, and that now, after a recent telephone conversation with Kitimat Clean president David Black, he has a better sense of the benefits of the proposed refinery project. “I phoned him and we are in communication right now,” Brousseau said, excited that the project would create approximately 10,000 direct and indirect jobs in the area. “This is a man who has a vision for this area.”

Cameron Orr Following a recent CBC Fifth Estate special report which rated health facilities in Canada, the Sentinel reached out to Northern Health to react to the findings. The report, available at, gives Kitimat General Hospital a ‘B’ grade, which combines the findings under a number of categories, such as “nursing-sensitive adverse events on medical patients” or the same on surgical patients. Readmission rates after surgery was also included, as was readmission after medical treatments. Thirty-two people have also submitted their own ratings of the hospital, which put it at three-anda-half or four stars for most categories, such as respect, cleanliness

and communication. Northern Health’s regional director of communications Steve Raper said that while the information in the CBC’s report is largely publicly available and is information they would already be aware of, they do look to public reports like these and assess the information for future improvement. “We believe our staff and physicians provide exceptional health care to northerners,” he said, saying they do like to hear complaints as well, so they can further improve their care. “A key message that I want to really reinforce is we think our hospitals are very safe and we want people to be very comfortable and confident going into our facilities,” he added.

Voting trendy Did you know in 2009, only 50 per cent of the people who could vote in the provincial election did so? That’s one out of every two people saying that voting just wasn’t worth their time. I don’t know why it happened. At the time there were reports which suggested that the hockey playoffs maybe diverted attention away from politics. I should hope that Canadians are smarter than to put hockey ahead of the democratic system. Maybe it was something else, like voter apathy, where people just didn’t think their vote mattered. Is there a point when surely a particular candidate will get in? The trend among voters, it seemed from continuing to read 2009 news reports, is that turnout is continually going down. But a vote is still a message. Sure, the top objective is to get the candidate you support into the winners’ circle, but surely the parties look to where support is going to adjust their own policies. A political party certainly wants to represent the people — and by extension, remain in power — and a vote, regardless of for whom, shows where your priorities lie. The election period is coming to a close soon. May 14 is election day. After that, you’ll lose your chance for another few years. Locally we have four candidates. The NDP’s Robin Austin, the BC Liberals’ Carol Leclerc, the BC Conservatives’ Mike Brousseau, and the quiet arrival of Trevor Hendry with the British Columbia Party. Personally, I’ve always felt the challenge is to balance your local candidates to the party they belong. Sometimes a local candidate may be tempting for a vote, even if you’re not a big fan of the party leader. But it’s not a hard challenge to deal with. It’s all part of the process. Over the course of the campaign, hopefully you’ve picked up enough to know which party aligns with your life philosophies. Hopefully the May 1st all-candidates meeting helped. I can’t tell you here who to vote for, but all I can do is encourage you to vote. The Skeena riding did only slightly better than the provincial average for voter turnout. Here, 55 per cent of eligible voters turned out in 2009. We can as a riding do better. As the eternal optimist I believe all votes matter. We only get so many chances to sway politics. They come only every few years. One of those chances is now upon us. Make some time, and use your voice in the best way you can. Cameron Orr

Harper smilingly welcomes Trudeau Under Miscellaneous

Last week I berated Prime Minister Stephen Harper for hypocrisy in smilingly welcoming Justin Trudeau as the new leader of the Liberal Party, at the same time as he was flippantly dealing with an answer to a valid by Allan Hewitson question -- and also at the same time as he had given the go ahead for a ries of tasteless political attack ads about the new Lib head. ditional arms-length separation between This week I’m still on Mr. Harper’s case but this time my target is his ear- party-political government and labourlier hypocrisy terms of his post-election relations elements of crown corporations assurances of more transparency and ac- such as the Post Office, the CBC and Via Rail, pretty well takes the cake. countability as a majority government.

The CBC, admittedly, is seen (and criticized) through Parliament. I find it devious, but I’m aware that by many as anti-Conservative. However, few would categorize the they know full well, in most cases, the other side of the House will spot the “out of CBC as a “state broadcaster,” compared to a public broadcaster and I think very even sync” component of bulk-buy legislation. Clearly they also expect elements of fewer Canadians are in favour of seeing alert media, impacted business, industry the broadcaster switching from being pubor institutions will pick out weaknesses or licly funded to “government or especially, “hidden agendas” in the legislation.

aspects of contract settlements with its employees, noting that five of the CBC’s six collective agreements are set to expire prior to the 2015 federal election and the other, which expired last September, is already under negotiation. Considering the government’s record in response to public service union issues in the past two years it’s not hard to see why unionized employees are wary of closer ties to government, especially the treasury board. This was discomfiting, coming on top of a less-than-favourable Auditor General’s report, highlighted by the government’s inability to account for some $3.1-billion of $12.9 billion allocated for anti-terrorism security, since 2001. However, the revelation was timely with conspiracy and terrorism charges recently levelled at foreign nationals in Montreal and Toronto, and the deaths of young men from London, Ont. in an al Qaida militant attack on a gas plant in Algeria! Coupled with the bombing attacks in Boston and the arrests of young Muslim bombing conspirators in the UK, the focus on national security issues is again at top alert levels in the western world, including, clearly Canada. It’s time for government to be on top of its game and the Harper government is hardly showing itself as being there!

Some missteps from BC NDP leadership Baxyard Banter

It is said “those the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.” Step forward BC New Democrat leader Adrian Dix. Prior to the election campaign Dix had been at pains to do two things: First, reassure the business community that a government he led would not be a bunch of mad dog socialists. And second, dampen down expectations of the NDP’s hard core supporters. The latter was important given that whenever a party is returned to government after a lengthy period in the wilderness of opposition, that hard core, fired by electoral success, always wants to let slip the dogs of war. Which translates to immediately undoing every perceived evil thing the ousted

by Malcolm Baxter

government did during its terms and introducing the huge policy changes they fervently believe will create the utopia they espouse. Dix, who would probably like to be more than just a oneterm premier, clearly knew that route would lead to disaster down the road. He was also in the enviable position, given the unpopularity of the Liberals, of not really having to promise anything in order to win. The pitch to the electorate would be something along the lines of “you and I both know the government’s

books are a mess and, while we would like to do x, y and z, until we see just how bad it is we can’t make promises that we may not be able to keep.” But the chances of a politician/party taking a gamble like that are pretty remote. So it was no surprise that when the campaign officially started the promises quickly flowed. Even then, the amounts of money being shovelled off the back of the NDP truck were, realistically, paltry compared to the total budget of a B.C. government. And Dix stuck to

his cautious approach when revealing the NDP’s full plan by warning that, even with the undramatic announcements to date, an NDP government would deliver deficits for the first three years and maybe even the fourth. On the face of it, that was a gutsy call. But given voters have long since stopped believing in forecast surpluses, it was a smart one too. So, the universe was essentially unfolding as it should at that point in the campaign. Then came Monday, April 22. That was the day Dix announced that he was opposed to Kinder Morgan’s proposal to expand its AlbertaVancouver bitumen pipeline and with it the number of oil tankers using the Port of Vancouver. A complete re-

ATV drivers damage golf course Josh Massey Police have evidence from a four-wheel drive stunt that ended in $3,000 damage to the Kitimat golf course. Joyriders on two ATVs caused extensive damage to the greens at Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club on April 30, leaving areas of upturned dirt and several broken pins. One rider spun out of control and flipped the quad, leaving pieces of lime-green plastic as evidence for an RCMP investigation that is currently underway. The vandalism occurred between 10 a.m. and sunrise, the worst of it coming to holes 8, 9, 17 and 18, with 17 being damaged so badly they had to put in a temporary hole to serve until repairs are complete. “They did about 15 donuts on one of the greens,” said Constable Heather Bradshaw of the Kitimat RCMP. Sentencing for a crime like this could be up to six months in prison or $5,000 for mischief and possibly a motor vehicle offence as well, said Bradshaw, and she hopes the public will help reveal the identity of the culprits. As to whether the golf course will press charges, chairman Art Emmerson said, “We will look at that very seriously because we want to deter people from doing it again.” The location of the course is next to a BMX course, and it appears that the suspects on their quads ripped around there before coming onto the golf course to wreak havoc, said Emmerson. The course should be completely repaired by May 9 and it is still currently open for play, he added. The damage could cost up to $3,000, and will include aerating and reseeding, as well as putting in new sand. It will not be covered under the golf course’s insurance plan because the damage cost will be

lower than the deductible. A release by the RCMP reads: “Police are looking for a green sport type quad that will have damage to it’s body. If you or anyone you know has information regarding this thoughtless act, you are asked contact the Kitimat RCMP at 250-632-7111. If you wish to remain anonymous about this or any other crime please contact Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-TIPS (8477).

Northern “Aluminum infinitely recyclable”


versal of his previous position that he would wait to see the contents of Kinder Morgan’s official application. Apparently the change of heart was prompted by fears that the Green Party was gaining ground because of his previous wait-and-see position. Seriously? The shoo-in New Democrats terrified by the idea of a Green juggernaut? That’s taking political paranoia to a whole new level. The announcement was dumb on three levels.

One, it will scare the pants off resource industry companies. They must be asking, what’s next, toast LNG exports? Two, it tells the hardcore that if they exert a bit of pressure, a Dix-led NDP government will quickly cave in and give them whatever they want. Finally, it breathes life into a hopeless Liberal campaign, especially given the timing - prior to the leaders debates on radio and TV. (Lord how the Liberals must be wishing

they had a leader other than the thoroughly unpopular and factually challenged Christy Clark.) Will it change the election result? I doubt it just because of the presence of the aforementioned Clark. But it makes me think the gentleman interviewed by the National Post a couple of weeks back may have got it right. “They (the Liberals) screwed us for too long. Now it’s time to get screwed by someone else.”

Kitimat’s parking bylaw amendments affect recreation vehicles storage Rather than doing any wholesale changes to the town’s parking bylaws, councillors opted to just slip some additional wording to the files that gives a bit more flexibility for recreational vehicles. The situation councillors were faced with was how to deal with recreational vehicles on private properties which might affect sightlines for nearby vehicle traffic. The issue came to the front based on a

situation with a home on Whittlesey Street where an RV is parked on a property’s side yard. The homeowners had received a one year exception allowing the vehicle to be stored on the property in 2006. The arrangement of the property meant it could not be stored behind the home. Since then there have been no more exemptions applied for but the RV remains,

which was discovered during a separate bylaw investigation last December, when the placement of Christmas ornaments on the property was affecting snow clearing. The homeowner was allowed to keep the vehicle there until next November, but in the meantime council had asked for staff to bring up recommendations that would allow the parking and storage of an RV on a residential lot, provided it doesn’t block

traffic sightlines. Discussion lead councillors to adopt a wording amendment to the Kitimat Municipal Code which allows council to grant permission, on a case-by-case basis, for RVs to be stored on a side yard, as well as a rear yard, between November 1 and March 31 of the following year. Vehicles in excess of 3,700kg would be subject to these rules.

Public Notice official commuNity PlaN ameNDmeNt ocP ghg target bylaw No. 1, 2013 Kitimat Council invites public comment before making a decision on the following Official Community Plan Amendment. Kitimat Council is considering a bylaw to amend the Official Community Plan with respect to greenhouse gas reduction targets. The BC Local Government Act requires that an Official Community Plan include targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the area covered by the plan. Kitimat Council recognizes the longterm need to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; acknowledges the overwhelming uncertainty about making a forecast out to 2050; and appreciates any target based on current analysis could soon be outdated by such factors as fuel prices, technology change and community development. The proposed bylaw proposes adopting measures to document energy and GHG emissions, and establishes an interim target of per capita GHG emissions 10% below 2011 by 2020. a public hearing regarding ocP ghg target bylaw No. 1, 2013 will be held in the council chambers, Public safety building, 1101 Kingfisher avenue, on tuesday, 21 may, 2013 at 7:30pm. more information For more information about the above Official Community Plan amendment application and proposed bylaws, please visit 270 City Centre.

Book prize finalists display their works

Cameron Orr Victoria Miles is a storyteller with a knack for showing the fun, if crazy, side of life in the common family. Jackson Davies is known as the constable from the long-running Beachcombers television series, the show which hits its 40 year milestone this year. Together they travelled the northwest, hitting locations in Kitimat and beyond promoting their books, which are shortlisted for BC Book Prizes. Davies is up for the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize and the Bill Duthie Booksellers’ Choice Award for his book, Bruno and the Beach: The Beachcombers at 40. Miles meanwhile is shortlisted for the Sheila Egoff Children’s Literature Prize for her book, Mimi Power and the I-Don’t-Know-What. Miles said the inspiration for her story came from home. “It’s not so loosely based on my family,” she said of her book, about a girl dealing with life with a three-year-old sister. Miles said that when her own daughter was a toddler, she was “a real firecracker,” and a lot of time was spent keeping her calm and happy. “Our family ran into one episode after another and I realized I had material and I didn’t have to look any further than my own family,” she said about putting together a book from her experiences. She said it’s a bit of a departure from older

stories of hers that were a bit more fanciful in their settings. “When I had kids I got a little grounded.” She explained that the way she approached her story is how she’d speak to aspiring young writers. “All families have their stories and when I talk to kids, I want them to know that when they’re struggling with writing...they’ve always got something in their family they could write about.” Davies’s book, which was co-written by Mark Strange, a co-creator of the Beachcombers series, is essentially a look back at the series, with plenty of photos included. “It’s a bit of a family album,” he said, saying he had to go through 4,000 slides to find photos to include. He said it’s exciting to be shortlisted for an award. He said from his tour that the Beachcombers still hold a place in the people’s hearts, saying the show ran in a time when familes would usually gather at a TV on Sundays. The show has also been syndicated in several countries which helps its mass appeal. Kitimat was the pair’s first stop, with their final visit at the Terrace Public Library on April 27.

Sonja Comerford works on a quilting project at the quilter’s retreat at the Riverlodge last week, hosted by the Kitimat Quilters Guild. Sixty-six quilters from all over the region, and beyond, converged for the annual event.
