City road work season arrives By Josh Massey with spring firmly here, so is the city’s road building season. Here’s a look at what residents can expect as spring turns into summer.

Major projects THERE’S going to be a major overhaul, including water service and storm drainage, subsurface and surface on Park Ave. west of Kenney leading toward the back end of Canadian Tire. Work is to start this week, finishing midJuly at a cost of $510,000 plus $164,000 for the water work. McConnell between Eby and Sparks is also up for a major overhaul. There’s no set start date but the city has set aside $600,000 for the road portion, plus $160,000 for the water service portion.

Smaller ones A NUMBER of “pulverize and pave” projects, four in north Terrace and three in south Terrace, are to occur. The list includes repaving of Eby from Olson to McConnell. Preliminary work starts next week with a completion date of early June at a cost of $196,000. Tuck from Eby to Sparks is to be repaved with work also to start next week with an early June completion date. Cost: $113,000. Kenney from Graham to Keith is to be repaved. Work is to start as early as this month with an early June completion. Cost: $287,000. Molitor from Graham to Keith is to be repaved. Preliminary work to start this

week with an early June completion. Cost: $224,000 Eby from Haugland to Keith is to be repaved. Preliminary work has started aimed at an early June completion. Cost: $113,000. On the books but with no starting dates or costs is the repaving of Skeenaview Drive and the repaving of Lanfear Hill.

Finishing up TWO projects from last year are to be completed. Davis at a cost of $2,500 and Scott at a cost of $25,000.

Safer crossing a new traffic light system is to be installed at the pedestrian crossing on Kalum Ave. in front of the Willows Apartment building. A start and completion date has yet to be set. Cost: $60,000. This light will be controlled by those wishing to cross the street.

Two wheeling the kenney from Graham to Keith repaving project will be accompanied by new bike lanes. The estimated completion date is early June. It’ll be financed by a $41,000 provincial grant and matched by the city. Bike lanes are to be 1.5 metres wide, a standard now set by the province. City public works director Rob Schibli said the repaving and the bike lane work will take place at the same time. The list of projects this year reflects the city’s goals set out in a five-year work plan, he said.

Pathway to be lengthened The Grand Trunk Pathway, popularly referred to as the millennium trail, will be lengthened by 830 metres (just over 900 yards) westward toward Frank St. this summer if all goes as planned. The city has dubbed this extension The Grand View Walk because the view gets especially fresh along the new strip, said city development services director David Block. The three-metre wide paved pathway will extend from the trail’s western end which is now right across the road from the Hwy16 and Kalum Lake Road/Hwy 113 junction. The extension will take the pathway net-

work west, ending just shy of the CN level crossing at Frank St. The total cost of the extension is $286,300 with $153,500 of that coming directly from a provincial grant. Block said that a combined $30,000 in the form of grants from BC Hydro and CN means the city will be able to pretty up the sides of the path, though not to the same degree as the existing route. The landscape style will be more rugged, Block said, less manicured, favouring a seeded lawn and taller trees instead of ornamental shrubs.

Rio Tinto charged with harming fish at Kemano By Margaret Speirs

RIO TINTO Alcan may be focused on its smelter modernization project in Kitimat but it also has to contend with allegations of harming fish at its Kemano powerhouse location. The company has been charged with one count each of harmful alteration of fish habitat and destruction of fish, two violations of the Federal Fisheries Act (FFA), from events at Kemano on April 14, 2011. The smelter uses hydroelectricity generated

at its Kemano power station, which is powered by the waters of the Nechako Reservoir located further to the east. “Rio Tinto Alcan has been charged under the Fisheries Act relating to an emergency ramp down of the Kemano powerhouse on April 14, 2011,” said Colleen Nyce, a Rio Tinto official in a May 3 statement. “The ramp down was performed by Rio Tinto Alcan at the request of BC Hydro so that BC Hydro could perform an emergency repair on their transmis-

sion line system.” Rio Tinto Alcan has not received the evidence the federal Crown is relying on for these charges, said Nyce. Agents for the company and for the federal fisheries department made a brief appearance in Terrace court April 30 where another appearance date for next month was set. “When we receive the proper disclosure of evidence, Rio Tinto

Alcan will take the required time to review it and respond appropriately,” Nyce said. The two alleged violations of the FFA are section 32 and subsection 35(1). Section 32 of the FFA prohibits the unauthorized killing of fish by means other than fishing. This section normally applies to the detonation of explosives in or near water to kill fish. While subsection

35(1) is a general prohibition of harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat, meaning that any work or undertaking that results in harmful alteration, disruption or destruction is a contravention of this subsection. Penalties for violating subsection 35(1) include fines of up to $1,000,000, up to six months imprisonment, or a combination of both. A3

The BC government currently uses a “one size fits all” formula for funding post-secondary education. Under the formula, the provincial government pays the

same no matter where the student goes to school. But what NWCC college professors such as Sheree Ronaasen know is the per capita funding formula doesn’t recognize that rural institutions

such as NWCC face financial challenges because of the size and population of our region. Running a college in Northwestern BC is expensive. The funding formula needs to change to reflect the real world.

Coal mine can be done safely Dear Sir: Fortune Minerals wishes to provide clarity concerning its proposed Arctos Anthracite Project in response to the April 24, 2013 guest column (“Fortune needs to abandon its mine plan”). The Arctos Anthracite Project is one of the world’s premier metallurgical coal projects, owned by the Arctos Anthracite Joint Venture (AAJV), a partnership between Fortune Minerals Limited of London, Ontario and POSCO Canada Limited, a subsidiary of South Korea’s POSCO, one of the world’s largest steel producers. Anthracite coal is an organic, non-toxic material derived from plants that existed millions of years ago that has undergone a transformation to coal after burial. Anthracite is the highest quality coal – ideal for steel production and metal processing, but also for carbon filters for water purification and gasification for the production of synthetic fuels, plastics and fertilizers. The AAJV recently submitted a revised project proposal for Canada’s first anthracite mine. This revised description is based on a development scenario that, in addition to the mine and wash plant, involves extension of the existing Dease Lake railway line through a transportation corridor that was constructed by the B.C. government in the 1970s.

The submission formally restarts the environmental assessment (EA) process designed to assess the merits and impacts of the project from a balanced perspective that addresses environmental, social and economic considerations. An essential part of this process is the interaction with the communities to understand and address concerns and issues surrounding the project. These concerns can then be addressed through project design or mitigation practices to eliminate or minimize potential project impacts. There are many important distinctions between coal mining and base and precious metal mining. Arctos will not produce slurry tailings and therefore the project will not have a tailings pond. The company plans to move large volumes of rock, but the industry has a record of progressive rehabilitation and reclamation that will be part of a required closure plan. The land will be re-contoured and revegetated in consultation with aboriginal groups and regulators to look very much like the condition of the land before the commencement of operations. The aforesaid guest column implies there will be harm to rivers and fish near the proposed development. Environmental impacts were incurred in the 1970s when the B.C. government constructed the existing

railway roadbed. Environmental standards then were not as rigorous as today and there is an opportunity to improve the fishery by replacing some perched culverts that now interfere with fish migration. The AAJV will operate within all environmental regulations to ensure no significant impacts on water quality. The mine is being designed to minimize environmental impacts and includes a coal wash plant that recycles 95% of the process water. Water quality in nearby Didene Creek will be protected. Additionally, because of a natural waterfall barrier, the creek in the vicinity of the mine development is not fish bearing. No part of the mine will affect the Skeena River; only the railway passes through this valley. Neither the mine nor the railway impacts the Nass River or its watershed. The column referenced Shell’s former coal bed methane project and B.C. government’s recent restriction on petroleum and natural gas development in the Klappan. Coal mining is specifically not included in this ban, which recognizes the smaller footprint of coal mining, the significant economic importance of coal mining to the B.C. economy, different economic and environmental impacts, and the significant investment that the AAJV has already made.

NDP pipeline flip flop won’t change outcome


t 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 GUEST COMMENT business community that a government he led MALCOLM BAXTER 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 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 one-term 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 BC 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 Alberta-Vancouver bitumen pipeline and with it the number of oil tankers using the Port of Vancouver. A complete reversal 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.” Retired Kitimat Northern Sentinel editor Malcolm Baxter now calls Terrace home.

The AAJV is committed to the sustainable development of Arctos for the benefit of nearby aboriginal communities and for all stakeholders. This translates into jobs and revenue for the area. The project will create more than 500 high-paying jobs and another 1,000 secondary jobs. While the noted “community members turned down jobs,” Arctos has actually received hundreds of resumes from members of the Tahltan and Gitxsan. Over the anticipated a 25-year mine life Arctos will generate more than $10 billion in revenues and $900 million in combined federal and provincial taxes. Completion of the railway will provide lasting legacy infrastructure that will benefit communities, other businesses and British Columbians long after the Arctos project is completed. Substantial engineering, feasibility and environmental work have already been completed for the proposed development, with expenditures to date totalling approximately $100 million. Approximately $800 million is required to develop Arctos and establish it as a model of cooperation and an environmentally sustainable development.

Skeena provincial election candidates spend two hours going over key issues CANDIDATES hoping to represent the Skeena riding in the next provincial legislature debated issues and answered questions at an all candidates meeting held April 30, 2013 at the Terrace Pentecostal Assembly. Incumbent New Democrat Robin Austin, BC Liberal Carol Leclerc and BC Conservative Mike Brousseau attended. Below are excerpts from that evening.

Northern Gateway NEW Democratic incumbent Robin Austin repeated his party’s opposition to the $5.5 billion Enbridge project, saying Alberta bitumen should not be shipped across northern B.C. He said an NDP government would conduct its own review of the project but doubted it would change the NDP position that Northern Gateway not be built. He conceded that the ultimate decision on the project rests with the federal government, but predicted there would be “a lot of civil disobedience here in B.C.” should it be approved. BC Liberal candidate Carol Leclerc called Austin’s statements a “flip flop” in that the NDP opposed the federal review on one hand while advocating for one of their own. BC Conservative candidate Mike Brousseau, questioned because of his personal opposition to Northern Gateway while his party is in favour, called himself a “maverick,” saying he would represent the wishes of riding constituents.

debt and finance social and other programs. Austin said Premier Christy Clark sprang her government’s plan to place an export tax on LNG while speaking at an industry conference in February. This would be “an export tax on an industry that hasn’t even begun,” he said. “She’s got a plan where she wants to take us,” said Leclerc of Premier Clark, adding that LNG benefits would be shared.

Oil refinery CHALLENGED several times by Leclerc, and by questioners, over his party’s support for industry in general (one wondered if he was a NIMBY, the acronym for ‘not in my backyard’), Austin gave qualified support for an oil refinery. But, said Austin, it would be better placed closer to the source of raw crude in Alberta instead of shipping it across northern B.C. by pipeline. He did credit Kitimat Clean’s proposal for wanting to add value to crude. Brousseau said he had been in personal contact with Kitimat Clean president David Black, who is also the owner of Black Press.

The HST LECLERC was on the hot seat for this issue, saying it was a “good [tax] but not planned well” and was not presented well to the public. She said Clark acted on public opposition by conducting a referendum and then eliminating the tax based on the referendum’s outcome.

LNG projects

Carbon tax

THE three candidates generally expressed support for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry. But there was disagreement between Austin and Leclerc over the nature of economic benefits, specifically the creation of a Prosperity Fund to pay down government

AS WITH the HST, Leclerc said it was well-intentioned but had room for improvement. She did question the requirement for public sector bodies to pay the carbon tax each year, citing the $800,000 the Northern Health Authority has to pay as an

example. Brousseau said the tax, which is then used to finance projects to reduce carbon emissions, goes to big businesses who already had those projects on the go. “Families are being hurt by the carbon tax,” he said. Austin said the NDP plan would not increase the carbon tax but would broaden its application to include industrial emissions.

Food AUDIENCE member Greer Kaiser asked Austin about efforts to increase local agriculture. He said the NDP is proud of the introduction of the Agricultural Land Reserve during its 19721975 term in office. And he backed any effort to increase local food production. At the same time, Austin said efforts need to be made to preserve family farms. “Once we lose a generation of a family farm, that production is gone forever,” he said. Another audience member asked Leclerc for her opinion on double digit increases in the price of food in recent years. “I would like to see some type of control over the price of food, if we can do that,” she responded. Leclerc described food price increases as “absolutely despicable.”

Land claims BROUSSEAU, in responding to a question about land claim treaties, said “they should have been settled years ago.” A questioner later on, however, wondered why Brousseau included a pamphlet in his campaign literature which said that businesses can be destroyed because of aboriginal title. Brousseau responded by listing off a number of aboriginal leaders he either went to school with or met afterward. He also called for land claim settlements to be “fair

and balanced.” In a subsequent interview, Brousseau said the pamphlet in question actually dated back to the 2009 provincial election campaign when he also ran as a BC Conservative. “That shouldn’t have been put out there,” said Brousseau. “But it was the only one I had.” “That was an old policy – four years ago when Wilf Hanni was the leader,” said Brousseau in emphasizing that it does not reflect his own position.

Taxation AUDIENCE member Maatje Stamp-Vincent, noting that the provincial income tax rate has dropped for a single person from $3,100 to $2,300 under the current BC Liberal government, asked Austin if he supported raising the rate back up to finance specific programs or special interest groups. Austin acknowledged the NDP plan to increase the corporate tax rate to 12 per cent from the current 10 per cent. He said the Liberals themselves would raise the rate to 11 per cent. “I hardly think that’s the difference between socialism and capitalism,” said Austin. “It’s about time they gave something back,” he said in singling out high profits being reported by banks. Speaking a few minutes later, Leclerc said that increasing taxes on banks would only result in increased customer fees.

Back and forth THE evening also featured occasional sharp exchanges between Austin and Leclerc. In her opening statement, Leclerc laid the groundwork by suggesting “with all due respect” the riding needed an MLA who would be “far more engaged and visible than the current one.” Later, in rebutting a statement

from Austin that LNG projects would be “well regarded” by an NDP government, Leclerc said Austin and the NDP opposed Rio Tinto Alcan’s Kitimat smelter renovation, the Kitimat Clean oil refinery and mining. “There’s lots of stuff you’ve said no to,” she said. When Austin, in responding to an audience question on what he had done since being first elected in 2005, pledged to “do a much better job” as a government MLA than was the case when a Liberal represented the riding between 2001 and 2005, Leclerc came back with “you’ve had eight years and you’ve not shown us anything you’ve done.” Austin, during comments on education, said Clark was the “worst education minister this province has ever had” in the 2001-2005 first term Liberal government. “If you ask anybody here who has spent time in our school system, and Carol has spent 20-something years working in this school system, she would know exactly what this BC Liberal government has done to devastate public education,...” said Austin.

Who did what The debate, held at the Terrace Pentecostal Assembly, was sponsored by The Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce, the B.C. Northern Real Estate Board and The Terrace Standard. Northwest Community College vice president Beverly MooreGarcia was the moderator and Astral Media, CFNR and The Terrace Standard made up the media panel. Skeena Valley Rotarians took written questions from the audience and the timing of candidate statements and answers was handled by Terrace Toastmasters. Attempts to contact a fourth candidate, Trevor Hendry from the BC Party, were unsuccessful.

Snap quiz SNAP quiz. What’s the fastest growing business in Terrace? (No. Something legal.) For the answer, take Hwy37 South, go up that long hill and then turn right at the Northwest Regional Airport sign. That’s right. Just-released passenger statistics for April reveal 13,150 passenger departures or departures, the highest monthly total recorded save for August 2012, a traditionally high month, with its figure of 13,808 arrivals or departures. It’s a reasonable bet that a chunk of that April traffic is due in part to some of the 900-plus delegates at the April 24-26 Minerals North conference here. It was not that unusual to hear delegates say that while they had been to Terrace before, they have never been to Terrace before in the sense of spending time here. Rather, their connection to Terrace has been the airport – landing, getting baggage, and hopping into truck or bus or helicopter or another aircraft for a trip to camp job, mining project, industrial site, etc. For that alone, Minerals North 2013 was valuable for placing delegates within the city for an introduction to what it offers. That the conference highlighted a number of potential mines (not forgetting the Red Chris mine already under construction) was invaluable. Should any of these projects go ahead, some of those delegates may one day call Terrace home. ESTABLISHED APRIL 27, 1988

Newsprint not just a firestarter

tarting the woodstove each morning has become a routine task that would proceed much faster if I were illiterate. Then I wouldn’t pause to read each headline and perhaps even the first few paragraphs of every article on a newspaper page before I stuff it into the stove. Or sit on a hemlock block while reading a short article to the end. Longer articles I take back upstairs to read at leisure. This habit of scrutinizing every page as though it were the map to a hidden treasure delays my fire- starting unduly. By the time my chimney blankets neighbours downwind in a choking cloud of smoke, my neighbours’ smoke rises in gentle wisps like country houses painted by Grandma Moses. Prior to 2000 when recycling became the topic de jour, instead of pitching newspapers into the garbage after we’d read them, I stashed them in the basement. Eventually the pile comprised several years and rose to a height of two feet. My reasoning for collecting the newspapers downstairs escapes me. And even I didn’t need that much paper

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI stockpiled for singeing kindling. Did I fear running out of fire starter? I’m no Boy Scout when it comes to intentionally igniting a fire. Was I compiling my own research library? Surely my squirrelling wasn’t due to laziness, for what goes down, must eventually come up or the basement would soon resemble a hoarder’s home with a mere tunnel leading from stairs to stove. And always in the back of my mind is the thought, “Am I creating a problem for my family to clean up?” That I don’t want to do. My main stash consisted of Terrace Standards. We also

subscribed to The Western Producer, 88 pages printed on fine paper ideal for sparking a flame, and bought The Province brought in daily from Vancouver if the plane had cargo space. And every several months I picked up BC Bookworld at the library, another 48 or so pages of thicker, sturdier paper. In addition I collected Western People, the magazine insert from The Western Producer with its freelance articles about prairie folk – entrepreneurs, artisans, musicians, artists, inventors and other enterprising folk. Keeping up with all this reading material was impossible. But reading it now, a few pages each morning, is entertaining. News articles in the Terrace Standard recall history in the making a decade ago – construction of the new library when the city discovered the job, partially completed, was progressing without proper credentials; startups of businesses that have either flourished or faded into oblivion. I am reminded of local columnists. Budding authors. Dance groups. Classroom achievements. Fall fairs. Past elections.


BC Bookworld, though published only four times a year, alerted readers to so many books published every year by British Columbian authors I could not hope to read them all. It was in BC Bookworld that this morning I found mention of Mark Forsythe’s “British Columbia Almanac,” a review of his growing up in Ontario and becoming a local reporter at CBC in Smithers, Prince George and then Prince Rupert. His book also offers samplings of listeners’ letters written to CBC while he manned a mic at these B.C. radio stations. I intend asking the library to bring in Forsythe’s book for me to read if they don’t already have it in the stacks. That’s probably what I intended to do in the winter of 2000, but didn’t follow up due to competing duties. Unless I start the woodstove more than once a day, I face no shortage of fire-building paper. Ever. A clever person intent on making better use of time would simply riffle through an issue, pull out half a dozen random pages and get on with starting the stove. Or use a barbecue lighter.

Terrace Standard  Wednesday, May 8, 2013 A7

The Mail Bag Don’t take music from our schools Dear Sir: As a recently-retired music specialist, I look back in awe at the quality of music instruction in this school district. That quality is driven by the dedication and expertise of qualified music specialists. Terrace school music programs are among the best in B.C. That’s why Terrace has a community band, a symphony orchestra, the Pacific Northwest Music Festival, stellar high school musicals and a great concert series. Our town’s school music programs have produced many professional musicians, including a Juno nominee. Musical excellence is an integral part of Terrace’s identity. In 1998, Terrace’s school music programs were on the chopping block, and hundreds of people in our community fought hard to save them, but the school

board cut elementary band, kindergarten and grade 6 classroom music from the curriculum. The Dare to Dream Foundation filled in the gap and eventually the school district reinstated elementary band. Terrace’s school music programs are on the chopping block again. Suwilaawks quietly axed its music program a year ago, replacing it with a general fine arts program taught by a non-specialist teacher. This year, for the first time in 47 years, Suwilaawks had no participation in the Pacific Northwest Music Festival. Now classroom music programs at Cassie Hall and Ecole Mountain View are also about to be eliminated, initiating little or no consultation with parents or teaching staff. These are programs that feed into elementary and high school band, community band and

Eventually, we’d be saying goodbye to elementary and secondary band. There is a huge body of research that unequivocally demonstrates that good music programs taught by music specialists lead to significant and outstanding educational outcomes – our kids are

smarter, learn more, and are happier. Children who attend regular music classes score higher in math and reading skills. Music education improves memory and helps with social skills, builds confidence and patience. It is how we often worship and is integral to our spiritual lives. And beyond that, playing music is just plain fun. It ignites a light in us that’s often

hard to access at school in other ways. Music for all children is a cause worth fighting for. Rather than gnawing away at the excellent musical tradition in our schools and community, the school district should be actively supporting it, and expanding it as a costeffective way to get to better educational outcomes. Replacing music

programs taught by highly trained music specialists, with programs taught by nonspecialists, can only lead to one outcome: students with fewer skills in an increasingly complex and scary world. Parents are the key to retaining classroom music and band programs. They are in a much stronger position than teachers to influence decisions made by

principals and district administration. And the parents of children in schools at risk need to make their voices heard loudly and clearly. This is not a subtle shift in school board policy, it is a very significant degradation of one Terrace’s proudest traditions – a strong and vibrant musical education program. Anne Hill, Terrace, B.C.

Don’t judge a mine on emotion, disinformation


he other day I was changing the Brita water filter we have attached to my family’s kitchen faucet. My three-year old daughter was watching me and asked how it makes the water taste better? I’m blessed with a very bright and inquisitive red-haired child. So I took the filter apart and showed her that it was charcoal. I explained it was dug from the ground and that it cleaned and purified the water we drank from the faucet. She looked at me and said, “That’s so cool Daddy!” Being Tahltan and Tlingit, I also told her that we have one of the largest anthracite coal deposits in the world in our traditional territory. The same stuff used to make water filtration systems. The Klappan-Groundhog Formation is up to 1,100 meters thick and contains more than 30 coal seams, which range in thickness up to 11 meters. If given the go ahead the area could support coal mining activity in excess of 100 years. I also remember as a child my mother and father drove our family to the Klappan River and to

Mount Klappan. I never saw any evidence of permanent campsites, either for hunting or fishing. I know because we wandered everywhere as we explored the terrain along the railway grade. It was 1975 and I was 12 years old at the time. We made regular trips into the area during the summers. Mount Klappan and the three rivers that start in the area were never called the “Sacred Headwaters.” The term was created in 2004 for slick marketing purposes by environmental groups or non-government organizations (NGO’s) who oppose any coalmine in the area. In January of this year I was retained as a consultant by Fortune Minerals to better communicate the project to the Tahltan community members and to gauge and record their thoughts about the project. During the Cordilleran Roundup conference in Vancouver, the Tahltan leadership met with Fortune executives and consultants to discuss the project. The company provided an update regarding its 2013 summer work program. Fortune Minerals also expressed its interest in estab-

g u e s t c o mm e n t

GORD LOVERIN lishing a formal communications agreement with our leaders along with a desire to communicate directly with Tahltan community members. It was during this meeting in January that Fortune’s President, Robin Goad, again apologized for the arrest of Elders during a blockade of road access to Mount Klappan in 2005. It was also stated that Fortune Minerals would be apologizing directly to the affect-

ed Elders in a ceremony sometime within the near future. So I was not especially disheartened when I saw the full-page ad in the Terrace Standard newspaper the week of the Minerals North conference in that city. I was in the room and heard the apology and I was glad that it had been offered unconditionally. A slick advertisement cannot change when the apology was offered or block the right of Tahltan community members to know more about the project. What does dishearten me as a Tahltan and a Tlingit are environmental groups who inject themselves between the right of First Nation community members to hear and evaluate for themselves the merits of a development project. Through creation of protection campaigns they create misinformation and half-truths that spread like wildfire in aboriginal communities. Mining companies on the other hand are legally bound to tell the truth about their projects because they are often using other people’s money to build a producing mine. They also use scientific infor-

mation that needs to stand up to rigorous scrutiny during environmental assessments. The Tahltan have created its own environmental assessment process that has a track record of assessing and mitigating development projects, a first of its kind in BC. Tahltan Heritage Environmental Assessment Team (THREAT) is stacked with scientists and local community experts. I have faith in letting it work with Fortune Minerals to assess and report its findings to the Tahltan membership directly. From there we get to cast an informed vote in a project referendum. Respect, decorum and gaining a positive social license form the heart of this process, not biased advertising. If the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition and other NGO’s can let that process unfold, it would satisfy the opportunities of this project for my people like a cool glass of water…filtered, of course, by coal.

Medical building revamped A major overhaul of the exterior of the Terrace Public Health Unit on Kalum Ave. is well underway. Deep Creek Masonry is the prime contractor on the $1.125 million job paid for by the provincial government which owns the building and leases it to the Northern Health Authority. Deep Creek owner Kevin Goddard says the renovation project is moving along swiftly with two of about eight walls complete since work began March 21. The project involves a complete redo of the building’s exterior – installing new siding over fresh insulation and putting in new windows. Northern Health has given Goddard until September to finish, but he said that based on current progress the work might wrap up a bit sooner than that. Three other companies are working on the project as subcontractors, including Yellowhead Pavement Marking Inc., A&J Roofing, and Straight Up Doors. The project is currently keeping 18 people employed full-time. Deep Creek Contracting has taken on other large projects in the Terrace area, including the Maple Estates adult living residential street and Horizon Dental buildings. Goddard says he hires and buys locally, and tries to reuse material salvaged from de-

We’ve recycled all the insulation and windows and metal flashings and metal trim salvaged to the scrap yard ... quite a bit of the cedar is being salvaged for fences.” The health unit building was built in the 1970s. Overall the building is in great shape according to Goddard. Though he said the decaying siding had turned into one big birdhouse for woodpeckers.

Dealer nabbed

TERRACE RCMP busted a young man for drugs in the downtown area late last month. Police executed a search warrant at a residence in the 3500 block of Kalum St. on April 27. A charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking is being forwarded on a 29-year-old man, said police. The RCMP said “there is an increased level of crime in a neighborhood when there are drugs around. The citizens of Terrace need to take ownership and report this behaviour.”

Environment key to vote decision She was asked her position on the proposal to build an oil refinery in the Terrace- Kitimat corridor. She said it was a good idea that would create many jobs. She expressed no alarm over an oil pipeline to the refinery or any environmental concerns over construction of the complex. She said nothing about the impact to air and water quality or the loss of many hectares of industrial forest land. Robin Austin thought the refinery proposal was a good idea if it is located in Alberta as close as possible to the tar sands. The next question referenced the layoff of provincial government professional and technical staff who carried out environmental work. Leclerc then was asked if they should be rehired. Her response was for them to try and find work with mining companies who need environmental monitors and biologists. The last question was the Rio Tinto Alcan recent air emissions permit amendment to put more SO2 into the Terrace-Kitimat air shed. Leclerc did not express any concern over additional acid rain falling into the Terrace - Kitimat corridor water systems that will impact fish and wildlife. She said the company will do a good job of monitoring and managing air quality. I am very concerned over the BC Liberal party being re-elected, with its single minded focus on massive development and the long term implications to the environment of our region, its fish and wildlife and other ecological values cherished by the majority of us who live in this special part of British Columbia.

Dear Sir: I attended the all candidates meeting in Terrace on April 30 and I have listened to many speeches and watched the provincial leaders debate, read many election press clippings, party and leader profiles, political advertisements, interviews of the leaders and candidates, more than I was able to assimilate. After my political analysis I have as most people would conclude, determined there is one distinct difference between the two major political parties and that is how the economy and the environment of the province should be managed. The BC Liberal party says they care foremost about one thing – and that is a strong economy. Contrary to anything Liberal leader Christy Clark and her candidates claim, they give the environment only a second rate consideration. During the current campaign the BC Liberal party leader and Skeena candidate Carol Leclerc have both said environmental studies will slow down LNG development. They accuse the NDP of proposing studies that would kill projects and investment. Is the BC Liberal party saying that projects should proceed at any cost? The New Democratic Party favours a strong economy, which is contrary to Liberal advertisement and rhetoric being pitched during this very negative campaign saying the NDP is not able to manage the B.C. economy. The statement is not true, the difference between the two parties is that the NDP understands that “air, water, land and all living things” are an integral part of a strong economy and the well being of our province. Leclerc was asked a number of questions at the all candidates meeting that caught my attention.

We cannot afford to vote for NDP Dear Sir: Skeena NDP candidate Robin Austin has told us about his party’s platform of focusing money on post secondary education with skills training for future industrial jobs here and elsewhere in the province. This sounds good to me. But the problem is that if you are against industry in the first place, where are those jobs going to come from? Those jobs are going to be in Alberta because it has a thriving economy. So we face having our tax dollars pay for skills training for jobs that

will be in Alberta because the NDP does not support industry. That’s a good deal for Alberta but it would be a bad deal for B.C. under the No Development Party. We need industry because industry it is the private sector. And it is the private sector that creates the wealth that drives the economy to pay for our social programs. After 15 years of economic devastation here there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel and we cannot afford to lose the opportunity. Michael Farrar, Terrace, B.C.

Just don’t breathe in Dear Sir: Rio Tinto Alcan (RTA) has stated that its Kitimat Modernization Project (KMP) will be cleaner in all areas of pollution except sulphur dioxide (SO2). An RTA press release on KMP notes aluminum production will increase by “more than 60 per cent” (22Oc08). An RTA rep at the recent Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce Business Expo confirmed that means at least 60 per cent more SO2. What is RTA doing about that? A Ministry of Environment “Fact-

sheet” (23Ap13; on web) on KMP says no environmental assessment was needed because of “overall reduction in total waste discharge”. That has allowed the ministry to just now grant a “permit amendment” to increase the SO2 emission (27 to 42 tonnes/day). Though the factsheet attempts to reassure, health effects, ominously, will be monitored. Is KMP’s production of aluminum cleaner than its process of approval? The answer may be blowing in the wind. Just don’t breathe it. David Heinimann, Terrace, B.C.

We need recycling here Dear Sir: I am writing to you because I am concerned about Terrace’s recycling program. I am 10 years old and was born and raised in Terrace. I think the city of Terrace needs to think of a recycling solution and fast. If we don’t have a recycling program, the Terrace landfill will fin up quickly. I don’t understand why other B.C. communities have free recycling and

pay for landfill use and in Terrace it is the opposite, you pay to recycle but it is free to use the landfill. Hopefully in the near future Terrace will have a recycling program for our community. When I’m grown up and have a family of my own I want to live in a safe and healthy environment. Cedar Butler, Terrace, B.C.

Bike challenge issued By Amara Janssens THE date is set, and the prize is being crafted for a competition between Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski and Smithers mayor Taylor Bachrach. This friendly mayoral competition is for Bike to Work Week held annually the end of May. Each mayor’s goal is the have the most teams from their community participate in the week-long event. The mayors are both looking forward to the week and hope that by making the event a competition it will provide residents with a little extra incentive to register as participants. “This is a fun challenge,” Bachrach said. In addition to bragging rights, Bachrach hopes that his homemade trophy dubbed “the Golden Saddle,” will provide inspiration. The saddle is a vintage bicycle seat Bachrach will personally spray paint gold. “The winning community will get to hang it in their city hall,” he said. “I am looking forward to seeing Mayor Bachrach’s homemade trophy,” said Pernarowski. Additionally, he hopes more Terrace residents will register for the event to “keep the golden saddle away from Smithers.” When asked on their confidence for their community to win, Bachrach replied “we’ll see how it goes. Terrace will give us a good run for our money.” Last year more than 130 Terrace residents participated and organizers hope to have more than 300 this year. Pernarowski spoke of last year’s event and

smithers mayor Taylor Bachrach, left, has challenged Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski to a Bike to Work Week competition. said there was a “pretty good representation of council,” but hopes to exceed that this year. Although each mayor hopes to come out of this week-long event victorious, they both see this challenge as an opportunity to showcase the benefits of cycling, a healthy lifestyle, as well as the natural beauty of the region. The event is “a good


way to highlight the bike trails,” added Pernarowski. The Terrace organizing committee will be providing free tuneups and bike assessments for the first 15 workplaces to register at least one-quarter of their employees. “This is a first come first serve basis,” explained Tara Irwin, sustainability coordinator for the City

of Terrace. A bike mechanic will visit these workplaces and provide the free service for everyone in the office. Bike to Work Week kicks off on Monday, May 27, and will run until Friday, May 31. Both mayors will be biking to work while they are in town that week. Teams can register at

How will you vote on May 14th? After over a decade of decline in the forest industy under the BC Liberals, we now have an opportunity to make a “change for the better,” to stop the erosion of manufacturing jobs in BC. After over 75 mill closures and the loss of thousands of jobs under the BC Liberals, the time has come to stop the devastation and bring back those jobs. USW, Local 1-1937 believes that supporting the BC NDP and its jobs and training agenda is “one practical step” that forest industry workers and their families can take to bring jobs back to BC.

Heritage celebrated by students By Amara Janssens STUDENTS FROM ‘Na Aksa Gila Kyew Learning Centre, Skeena Middle School, and Caledonia Senior Secondary participated in the Northwest Regional Heritage Fair held at Kitsumkalum Hall on Friday, May 3. Students were free to research any topic of their choosing, but they all needed to visually demonstrate a research plan, objective, and conclusion. This year, 90 projects were on display lining the inside of Kitsumkalum Hall. Michael Munday, 12, a Grade 7 french immersion student at Skeena Middle School researched the Terrace Mutiny for his project and said he picked this topic because his great grandfather was here when it happened and he wanted to do a project about his hometown. Munday’s project was primarily in French, with the exception of a first-person journal he wrote documenting the daily events of a soldier. “I want to be an author,” Munday said when asked what he

wants to be when he grows up. Specifically, Munday is interested in fiction, adventure and medieval stories. “Take Lord of the Rings for example, that’s me,” he said. Students from the Northwest Region are eligible for 14 regional and provincial awards. Additionally, five students will be selected to participate in the Provincial Heritage Fair to be held from July 4-8 in Victoria, B.C. Participating in the curriculum-driven fair fulfills part of the social sciences and language arts requirements set forth by the Ministry of Education. Also in attendance of the event were Royal Canadian Mounted Police veterans Gerry Brown, Marjan Kriegl and Rick Meijer. This year marks 100 years of policing and Terrace and was this year’s theme at the fair. On display were collections of police related articles, photos and artifacts. BC Provincial Police uniforms were on loan from the Prince Rupert Fire Museum for the fair.



HERE’S MICHAEL Munday at his booth at the Northwest Regional Heritage Fair on May 3. He is holding a photo of his great grandfather. The caption reads, “One the right, George Morrison (my great grandfather) 11th Field Ambulance based in Terrace from 1942-1944.”

jacent Hwy16. The paved path will end at a turn-around with benches and waste disposal bins, Block said. A gravel path might be added to connect it with Frank St. The city hopes to fin-

ish the extension by this September at the latest. The name millennium trail comes from the construction of the existing longer section, a City of Terrace project in the 2000 millennium year.

Pitch for final debate falls short

SKEENA BC Conservative candidate Mike Brousseau’s late in the writ pitch for a final debate doubling as a fundraiser has been shot down by his NDP and BC Liberal opponents. Brousseau did not participate in an April 25 debate on education at the Elk’s Hall citing a prior engagement to attend an information session on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline plan. But he did show up briefly beforehand to hand out flyers challenging NDP candidate Robin Austin and BC Liberal candidate Carol Leclerc to a round robin debate and fundraiser May 11 at the Thornhill Community Church. “This will be a sparring unlike any we have seen yet,” reads the flyer. The event would cost $100 for dinner and act as a fundraiser for the Terrace Assembly of Gatherers, a homeless and community outreach project Brousseau helped found. None of the money raised would go toward his campaign, said Brousseau. But neither Austin or Leclerc will be participating in the event, citing too short notice on a date just three days before the May 14 election. “Unfortunately the request came in too late and she is already booked up until election day,” said Val Gauvin, Leclerc’s campaign manager. Austin declined the invitation as well. “Prior notification could have helped,” said Gord Lechner, Austin’s campaign manager, noting Austin is scheduled to be door knocking at that time. “It’s three days before the election, that’s the time you’re going out meeting the electorate, knocking on doors.” The last 72 hours before election day is significant, he said, noting that including this week’s debate at Mount Elizabeth Secondary School in Kitimat, Austin will have participated in six debates. The campaign has requested Austin’s image be removed from the flyer before any more are distributed. Both Leclerc’s and Austin’s image are displayed at the top of the

flyer. “They created an event, used all of the candidates pictures, ... without prior approval,” said Lechner. “I don’t want to give anyone the impression, if this is

going to go ahead and they’re raising money by suggesting we’re going to be there, that this is somehow endorsed by [Austin].” But Brousseau isn’t taking no for an answer.

“Those were all candidates forums, they weren’t debates,” he said, noting the format of his proposed debate is more of a head-tohead style. “If these guys don’t

show up, guess who is going to look really bad?,” he said. “I’m dropping the gloves, I’m dropping the gauntlet.” The fundraiser will go on as scheduled,

with or without the other candidates, he said. And Austin’s campaign is questioning the motives behind the proposed fundraiser. “Either the whole thing is a bit of a set up

to try to get Robin and Carol in there,” said Lechner. “Or it’s a bit of a set up so that if [the candidates] say they don’t want to go, they can attack him... It’s bizarre.”

Landfill impact being aired out May 13 WASTE AND LANDFILL issues will be on the table May 13 at a discussion being held at Northwest Community College (NWCC). The discussion comes in the wake of the proposed Forceman Ridge Landfill to be built halfway between Terrace and Kitimat by

2015. This new facility would see the closure of both the Thornhill and Terrace landfills. The province has warned the two existing landfills are over capacity and do not meet environmental standards, saying the Kitimat-Stikine regional district,

along with the City of Terrace, must either upgrade the existing landfills or build a new one. However, with the upcoming panel discussion, Weary hopes to address issues such as waste diversion, recycling, and environmental impact, particularly on the local watersheds.

“There’s a group opposed to the location,” Weary said. “Quite a few people are concerned with Onion Lake and Clear Water Lake flowing into Lakelse Lake’s watershed.” The panel will feature four specialists from science and social

science backgrounds to debate ideas in an academic and open-discussion based format. According to Weary, this is an opportunity for the community to look at waste differently. Panel members include: Dr. Alex Lautensach, an environmental

ethics professor and researcher at UNBC; Dr. Catherine White, a biologist and ecologist at NWCC; Roger Tooms, manager of works and services at the regional district; and Ian Maxwell, a retired structural engineer. The discussion will take place from 7-9

p.m. in Room 2001 at the NWCC in Terrace. The first 45 minutes will see the panelists debating a set of predetermined questions. The next 45 minutes will be for open questions from the audience, while the last 30 minutes will be open discussion.

Cal musicians bring back the bling IN A whirlwind trip of seven days, Caledonia bands and choir hit all the high notes to win four trophies from the Worldstrides Heritage Festival in Seattle. The trophies were for Outstanding Band Group for the concert band, the Adjudicator’s Award for the concert band, the Program Award for the school’s total program, and the Instrumental Program award for the two bands. “Down there, their trophies are massive so there’s a whole lot of bling going on,” said musical director Geoff Parr, adding the some of the trophies are four-feet tall. The three awards were gold for the concert band, gold for the jazz band and silver for the choir. And Greg van Horne won a Maestro Award trophy for his trombone solo with the jazz band as chosen by the adjudicators. The concert band was recommended to a gold level festival, which is a special festival that’s invitation only and would be in Los Angeles, but the school won’t likely go, said Parr. It’s the school’s fourth time at the Seattle event and their best showing, said Parr, adding students won two golds and a silver in previous years. The festival has gold, silver and bronze awards similar to Canadian festivals but participants can choose to be ranked and with that comes trophies, he said, adding this was the first time he chose for the bands and choir to be ranked. Some students performed in more than one group: two or three students were in concert band, jazz band and choir, and several took part in both bands or one band and choir. Parr said it’s not about the “bling,” and a highlight was the students and chaperones just enjoying the whole time on the bus together.


several members of Caledonia’s bands and choir show off their trophies and awards from the recent trip to the Worldstrides Heritage Festival in Seattle.

And to kickstart everyone, Cathy Jackson of Spotted Horse Nursery is sponsoring a pumpkin growing and sunflower growing contest for those ages 16 and under and also 16 and older. “She has also created a category for those 16 and over, because she knows a growing contest brings out the kid in all of us,” says Nancy Ross, Skeena Valley Fall Fair committee president. Categories are largest pumpkin and largest sunflower. Largest pumpkin will be measured by circumference and largest sunflower by the size of its head, excluding petals. Seeds will be provided for free for young growers age 15 and under, or they can use their

own seeds. For any new gardeners who want to enter the contest, Ross’s advice is to start seeds indoors or in a greenhouse, and transplant them into the ground when it’s good and warm outside, maybe in early June. Baby them and use lots of compost or manure, she hsaid. The soil should be kept moist, but make sure it’s a well-drained, sunny site. Some growers protect their plants from cold and wind. For both pumpkins and sunflowers, the way to get the largest is to let the fruits and flowers set, but to choose the largest one after it has clearly shown it is growing well and remove all others, said Ross. Then the plant puts all of its energy into that one. For pumpkins, once the fruit has set and is growing well, and especially if we have a warm summer, it’s important

That’s Pat Delaronde with her. to water your pumpkin plant regularly. The contest is in keeping with this year’s fall fair theme, “Celebrate Local,” with the idea of celebrating the local in every aspect of

the events. The Skeena Valley Fall Fair 2013 Committee hopes more gardeners than ever get involved and showcase their produce, their flowers and other tal-

ents this year; there are more categories to enter for exhibits, and many fun events being planned. The Skeena Valley Fall Fair returns September 7-8.

Diversity health fair focuses on prevention In its three years of existence, the Terrace Diversity Health Fair has grown into the largest event of its kind in the northwest and an exciting and dynamic multicultural event. This year’s Diversity Health Fair on May 25 will focus on the theme of Prevention of Chronic Illness while keeping visitors active and entertained. A Healthy Cooking Demonstration will feature local chefs who will prepare ethnic dishes with the help of a local dietitian. Move It! With Zumba, Bhangra and Tai Chi will get hearts pumping and feet moving with interactive exercise from a variety of cultures. This free event also will feature information booths about local health services and on-site health screenings. The Fair aims to provide newcomers and immigrants with access to a wide range of health and wellness resources Terrace has to offer. Adopting a healthy or balanced diet, controlling weight, and adopting strategies to enjoy daily physical activities are the best steps to prevent health related ailments and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Visitors will have access to a great deal of information, some in a variety of languages from more than 30 health and wellness exhibitors. For more details on the fair, see it under Community Calendar on page 20.

Terrace Standard  Wednesday, May 8, 2013


f I have a dream in which you were being really rotten and mean to me, I am still mad at you when I wake up. I know, intellectually, that it was a dream, but the emotion lingers. So don’t “Good morning” me! Why is it nobody’s business but your own what you are planning to do at this busy intersection? Had I known you were going to turn right, I would not have waited for you creeping slowly along to meander over here, I would have taken my (signaled) right turn much earlier. And you there up ahead, are you ever going to turn left? You have had your left turn signal on for at least three intersections now, and I am beginning to doubt it will happen in my lifetime. Now, look, you’ve confused the pedestrians. Are they safe to cross ANY crosswalk, are they supposed to read your mind, or take their chances and get creamed? Okay, here they go, they’ve started walking. Or it looks like walking, only in slow motion. See, they are moving their arms and legs but at such a pace as to be almost – but not quite – stopped. This town has the slowest pedestrians in the world, I am sure of it. It doesn’t matter if it’s burning hot, breezing cold or raining sideways. They walk like this: “Oh dee oh dee oh, la dee dah.” Can we build a giant oversized pedestrian traffic signal at the eastern entrance to town, with a sign that says “World’s Slowest Pedestrians” and a “walk” signal that stays on for, say, 15 minutes? That would lure in plenty of tourists! We could add a lit-up overhead highway sign at both entrances to town that

W H AT ?

charlynn toews

:( says, “Caution: World’s Slowest Pedestrians and they all wear all-black especially on overcast starless moonless rainy nights.” If you want to be really rude and insulting to a person you know and want to have an appropriate card for the occasion, when would that occasion be? Here’s a hint: “Happy birthday to someone who will soon need performanceenhancing drugs to ride a stationary bike.” Or, how about: “Sorry you have to scroll so far down the menus on websites to choose your birth year.” And “At least you’re not as old as you will be next year.” “I remember when you weren’t so disturbingly old.” “Sorry you’re too old to stay out past 10 p.m. on your birthday.” “You look great for how

old I thought you were.” “We can’t wait until you have Alzheimer’s so we can start re-gifting items to you from your own house.” “Happy birthday to someone now taking drugs on their birthday for legitimate medical reasons.” You can buy these at any supermarket or online and present one or more to an unsuspecting co-worker, who’s just trying to mind her own business. Right, thanks so much for calling me worn-out, tired, sick, etc. How kind of you to pile ignorant insults upon me on this, my special day. Actually, you can keep your creepy card AND the supermarket cake with another insult written on it in a garishly-coloured mixture of lard and icing sugar, ha ha. Don’t want it. If you want to really annoy an aficionado of Toy Story toys, you could sell a race car set that features not one but five pictures of Woody on it, knowing the duped consumer would open the box at home to find a race car that Woody would fit in IF you already had that action figure. I was really angry and disappointed until my son pointed out my Gumby doll would fit. He does, and he races fast! Way faster, probably, than that dumb old Pixar guy, so there. And way to go, April! Real smart, getting unseasonably warm and causing my precious bamboo plant to start growing too soon and get frozen then die in early May. Hope you had fun with that. Good thing it’s been raining so much, it’ll be easy to find the worms I need to go out to the garden to eat, I am so mad. Well, that’s looking at the bright side, right? A21

She developed a passion for quilting and did over 100 quilts from baby to king size. There was still time for fun taking a lot of bus trips to Reno with Archie. In 1988 Archie passed away so in 1996 she decided to move to Terrace to be close to family . It was hard to leave her home for over forty years but she really did love living in Terrace and met many new friends. She joined the Happy Gang Centre and tried to help out wherever she could.

Shogun stars looking to nationals “You can’t age out of martial arts,” says Sensei Amber Pipe. She’s seen competitors as old as 60, and is confident her students will carry the skills they learn at her dojo – and abroad in competitions – with them for the rest of their lives. The competition experience is important, she says. “They get to see that there are athletes just like them out there,” she says, of her karate and kickboxing students. “They make friends that they’ll stay associated with because of today’s social networking—and they’re healthy friends. That’s my biggest thing.” Pipe teaches fitness classes in her dojo, for profit, but also runs a non-profit martial arts program where she acts both as trainer and mentor. Her program trains a number of youth for free and in return she asks them to commit to a healthy lifestyle, complete with a fairly rigorous training schedule – right now, leading up to nationals, her students are training five days a week for two to three hours a day. “They have a place to belong,” she says, “No matter what age they are, and it’s not an elite team, anybody can do martial arts.” The community has been a huge supporter of these athletes before, she says. Former student Dalton Stanvick “would not have made it to world’s twice, he went to Portugal and Spain, without donations from the community of Terrace.” And now she, and her fellow sensei Rajan Sangha, also known as one of the strongest players on the Terrace River Kings, are looking to the community to help fund the next batch of Daltons who are heading to nationals, in Ottawa May 17-19. Six athletes, Nate Alexcee, Kyle Spankie, Shannon Murtonen and Raden Roy as well as Pipe and Sangha, who also compete, are heading to Ottawa after qualifying in Williams Lake earlier this month. And although only a handful of students are going, the majority of the Terrace squad did very well at provincials, especially considering that some students hadn’t been training very long.

“For all of them, I think the big thing is that they haven’t been training for that long and they went to provincials and they all pretty much won there,” says Sangha. There are two types of fighting, continuous and point – in continuous, it’s exactly what you think, a couple of minutes of one on one fighting, similar to boxing with kicking. Points requires a lot more training, says Sangha, who is a points fighter himself. “Point fighting is a little different,” he says. “It’s more of a karate style so it’s more of a technical style of fighting where you have to use the technique to score a point first. It requires more speed and timing.” To get the students ready for the competition, Pipe and Sangha have been running them through drills in order to correct some of the mistakes made at provincials. This means sparring, using the heavy bags, and cardio. “We’re just trying to make them better, more well-rounded,” he says. “A big thing for these kids is cardio, so being able to go for the full two minutes or four minutes is kind of the main focus. It’s the longest two minutes, especially when you’re trying to avoid being hit and trying to hit the other person yourself.” All of the students have unique strengths, says Sangha – fitness, power, willingness to learn, discipline. And trips like this one help with team building and the students’ strengths rub off on one another, with them returning to Terrace more motivated and mature. “They’re going to meet people who have been training since they were six years old,” says Pipe. “In Ontario, they do martial arts like we believe in hockey.” The team has received donations from a number of community sponsors, including Bear Creek Contracting, Terrace Totem Ford, and Bob Erb, but are holding a garage sale this Saturday at 3704 Sparks to help raise more. The students have also been collecting bottles on the weekends.

■■ And that’s a first Atlantis Taekwondo hosted its first-ever home tournament here in Terrace at the end of March, giving Cody Skog’s students a chance to experience the feel of a tournament before heading out on the road. Next year’s event is set to be even bigger, with teams from all over the northwest in attendance.

Local Terrace runner Ed Ansems participated in the Vancouver Sun Run on April 21, along with 46,000 other runners, placing first in his age group (Male 65 to 69) out of 349 other runners in that group. As the Sun Run was also the B.C. 10km Championship he won that award also. His time of 42 minutes and 13 seconds (4:14 per km) placed him 776 overall out of the 46,000 finishers in the race. This was his second B.C. Championship win, as he won the 5km race in March. “It was a great experience to run in a race of this size,” he said. “Because of my placing in past races, I managed to get a race number that allowed me to be in the front group with the elite runners. Since the Sun Run 10km is one of the top three races in the world, I was really pleased to do so well.” Next up for Ansems is the B.C. 8km Championship in Vancouver at the end of May.

Terrace’s Northern Fusion volleyball team took bronze in the U14 Div 4 at provincials late last month.

First-year Northern Fusion brings home the bronze It was a year of firsts for the U14 Northern Fusion girls’ volleyball team – their first year as a team, their coaches first year coaching, and their first provincial medal, bronze. The team came together after the Skeena Grade 8 team’s success in the school league – coaches Kam Seimens and Shelly Haynes-Marrelli felt the team, who won gold at zones, was just getting started. They put the word out that they were interested in taking the team to the next level as a travelling team. And the girls were interested too, with a team of 10, including two Grade 7s and one player from Prince Rupert, emerging from a series of tryouts. The team practiced at least three times a week at Veritas, and after games against the Smithers U15 girls team and a trip to the Prince George Invitational (where they lost more than they won, but also faced off against, and beat the Terrace U15 team in


a thrilling game), the girls flew to Abbotsford for provincials April 26 and 27. This first year was all about building confidence. The game against Terrace was especially important, with the team realizing they had the skills to win. And once at provincials, the team breathed a little easier realizing that they were up against other teams their age in Div 4, not the older teams they’d been up against closer to home. But this didn’t mean they could relax, explained Siemens. The lower mainland teams have a huge pool to choose from, so even though they were the same age, the level of play was still very high and the team would have to bring their best – and they did, winning bronze in a redeeming final game against a Langley team they had lost against earlier in the tournament. And Terrace was the only team from the

He named the run the Ball Park. When the reach was christened, there were no roads to most of river. There were game trails. Gene and his cronies arranged with the engineer to have the train take them to the trestle a short cast downstream of Gigge’s Mill. According to plan, they would meet the train at the end of the day, a large chunk of which would be taken up by the arduous three mile hike downstream over log jams, across spongy swamps, and through annoying stream side brush – the kind of bush whack that inspires an appreciation of tall timber while tainting the day with the knowledge that the return trip would be made longer by fatigue.

northwest besides Prince George to attend the tournament, with many teams questioning why they’d travel so far. “Why not?,” answered Siemens. The team wouldn’t learn or grow without experiencing volleyball down south, and team members have a high level of potential. In fact, there are high hopes for this team, which, combined with the older Terrace girls’ team, are now going to make up a club to foster an elite level of volleyball players based here in Terrace. Northern Fusion plans to practise every Sunday while they still have the gym, before moving to a weekly gym workout to keep conditioning up during the off months. There is also a camp planned for July, and the teams will be fundraising quite a bit in order to pay for next year’s tournaments. For a longer version of this article, visit

Northmen rugby The Terrace Northmen have been practising since February, and are looking to start the season off with a win against Prince Rupert in their first game of the season, this Saturday, May 11 at NWCC. After that, they’re heading to Edmonton for Rugbyfest, where the boys are looking to make it into the finals after placing fourth in the tourney last year. The Northmen have a record number of players, with about eight rookies. They are playing to qualify for the Division 3 provincials, called the Saratoga Cup, traditionally held in Penticton. To play in that tournament they’ll need to beat Williams Lake, Prince George, and Prince Rupert ­­­– all strong teams. Each turf will do one home game and one away against each team and the team with the best record moves on.

Road cycling With the spring comes cycling in Terrace, with three road cycling events sponsored by the Terrace Off Road Cycling Association. The first is “The Kitimat River Challenge” Sunday, May 19 at 10:00 a.m.. Cyclists start from the chain-up lane at Krumm Road and Hwy 37S and ride to the Tourist Info Centre just outside of Kitimat. Then it’s the Tour de Jackpine in June and the Skeena River Challenge in August.

As I move down to the riffle below, just above the spot where I saw the dark fish, a steelhead swims past, inches from my legs. Sixty feet away is a log. On my side of the log is a depression that has given me many harvest trout over the years. It’s fast water. A place fish, fish new to the river, might hold. I call it the Dugout. I cast my fly to it once, twice. Moments after it hits the water the second time my line stops moving then bows downstream. I’m snagged. I’m about to grab the line and pull it with enough force to break off when it begins moving upstream, first slowly then so fast it makes a ripping sound. A steelhead leaps once and again then bolts downstream. The dark fish below boil as it races past them. I glance at my reel. There is too much line out. I won’t get this fish back, I think and as I do, the hook comes unstuck. Home 1. Visitors 0. We crawl up the bank and sit in the stands. I have a roast beef sandwich with onions and green tea.

Candidates have a past THIS provincial election isn’t the first time BC Liberal candidate Carol Leclerc has fixed her aim on New Democrat opponent Robin Austin. In early 2009, while still on city council and in the lead up to the provincial election of that spring, Leclerc expressed frustration on what she perceived as a failure by Austin to stay in touch with city council. “In the last while, there’s been a lack of help from the current MLA,” Leclerc told council at a January 2009 meeting with then BC Liberal candidate Donny van Dyk in attendance. Austin responded to the criticism at a March 2009 council meeting. “This is the very first opportunity since you got sworn in that I have been able to come here,” he told councillors, apologizing for not coming earlier. He then mentioned that his office had been in con-

stant contact with the city, asking if there was anything they could do in terms of advocating on behalf of the city. “We always had two answers,” he said. “One: no thank you, everything’s fine, answer.” But he noted that it was a previous mayor and council, noting that there was already a difference between this council and the last. Leclerc responded by wishing him the best, and saying council would accommodate his schedule if he were elected again in the May 2009 election. In a recent interview, Leclerc reflected on those events, emphasizing first that she was not even a member then of the BC Liberal party. “... I found it very frustrating that he would never make an effort, it seemed like, to say, what’s happening with city council, is there anything I can help?, she said. A31

Austin noted that if political opponents cannot agree on physical fitness as a common goal of good public policy, then society is in trouble.
