Enbridge pipeline motion too late Directors consider lastminute submission but opt to hold back support WALTER STRONG

Two reports into the risks associated with the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline corridor between Burns Lake and Kitimat - one commissioned under the banner of the Smithersbased Bulkley Valley Centre for Natural Resources Research and Management, and the other by the Northwest Institute for Bioregional Research - will not form part of any Regional District of Bulkley

Nechako (RDBN) submission to the ongoing federal Joint Review Panel (JRP) of the pipeline proposal. In a late attempt to have the RDBN board of directors consider taking advantage of its intervener status in the JRP hearings, Stoney Stoltenberg, director of electoral area A (Houston/Smithers) introduced the two reports, totalling over 130 pages, to the rest of the RDBN directors by email. Unfortunately, the reports did not reach directors’ email inboxes until only two days before the May 23, 2013 monthly board meeting. Director Taylor Bachrach, also mayor of Smithers, immediately supported Stoltenberg’s motion. “The regional district is registered as an intervener,” Bachrach said. “To my knowledge, we

haven’t taken any action to intervene in the process. This is our last chance to represent our constituents on what many feel is the most important issue facing our region right now.” A number of directors were immediately concerned that they were being asked to give RDBN approval to a lengthy, technical document without having had the opportunity either individually, or through an RDBN staff report, to determine whether or not the content of the reports fit with their constituents’ concerns. “My concern is that we haven’t tasked anyone to do the research on our behalf,” said Burns Lake Mayor Luke Strimbold regarding his reluctance to support Stoltenberg’s motion. ...see ENBRIDGE

Hikers find body in wooded area; identity of deceased male confirmed CONTRIBUTED Prince George RCMP and the BC Coroners Service have confirmed the identity of the human remains in a popular local trail system in Prince George. The BC Coroners Service were able to confirm the deceased as Anthony Carroll Lee of Prince George. Lee was 22 years old when he was reported missing to the Prince George RCMP on March 16, 2008.  Through investigation it was found that the last contact with Tony, as he liked to be called, was ANTHONY LEE a cell phone conversation where he stated he was lost in the woods.  Following a media release with a photo of Tony, a member of the public called police and advised that she had witnessed Tony walking alone into the Greenway trail system near the University of Northern BC on March 13, 2008. On May 13, 2013, two hikers located the remains of Lee in a wooded area located off a trail in the Greenway system.  If anyone has information they are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477.

Railway faces civil suit

First Nation claims damages against Canadian National Railway WALTER STRONG

The Wet’suwet’en First Nation (WFN) east of Burns Lake filed a civil claim against the Canadian National Railway Company (CNR). The lawsuit was filed on April 19, 2013 in the B.C. Supreme Court by Wet’suwet’en Chief Karen Ogen on behalf of all members of the WFN. The WFN are seeking damages for a 2011 flood that damaged reserve property, including the band office and four houses, which the suit claims was the result of an inadequate culvert system installed by CNR.

Lakes Economic Development Association (LEDA)

“We have learned that the flooding was caused by Canadian National Railway’s embankment that passes through our reserve and an inadequate culvert system maintained by CN under the embankment than cannot handle the capacity of high spring run-off events,” said Ogen in a statement. The band undertook its own clean-up and repair to damages caused by the 2011 flood. Council and band members remain concerned that the potential for another spring run off event has not been reduced since 2011. “We have tried working with CNR to have them address this problem but have not had success to date,” Ogen said. “We are prepared to continue engaging with CN but, at this point, it became necessary to commence the court action to protect Wet’suwet’en right and to try to advance this matter to a more speedy resolution.” Currently, WFN lawyers are waiting to receive CNR’s statement of defence. When contacted for comment, a spokesperson for CNR said that the company does not comment on active litigation.

process of generating the reports. While true that the RDBN had not commissioned the documents, Bachrach was concerned that the RDBN’s silence throughout the entire JRP process could be taken as ‘tacit support for the project’. “I don’t think I’d be representing my constituents if that were the case,” Bachrach said. Director of Area E (Southside) Steve Freeman also spoke in favour of approving the motion to submit the documents. “I’m under the impression that 60 to 70 per cent of our constituents are against it,” Freeman said. “I think we should put something forward so that we can say we’ve done something rather than having sat on our hands and done nothing.” Some councillors were concerned that the wide range of opinion on the proposed project meant that it was difficult to take a position that accurately reflected their constituents’ varied opinions. “It’s a big district,” said Village of Fraser Lake Director Dwayne Lindstrom. “Some people support the project and some don’t.” Bachrach and Rob Newell, director Houston rural, suggested that submitting the documents on the RDBN ticket didn’t mean the RDBN was committed to a position either for or against the proposed pipeline. “I don’t think submitting [these documents] indicates sup-

port or opposition, but simply articulates areas of concern to the regional district,” Bachrach said. “These are two reputable scientific reports. If we don’t submit these, what are we going to submit?” With the deadline for submissions arriving on May 31, 2013, it seems likely that the RDBN will not make any submission to the JRP. The final oral arguments of the JRP will begin on June 17, 2013 in Terrace. The two reports will still find their way into the official record of evidence submitted to the JRP, as they were included in a submission by the Northwest Institute for Bioregional Research. The first report analyzed risks associated with persistent slope instabilities along the proposed pipeline route through the west central B.C. A highlight of the report is that three of six previous landslides in western B.C. have severed an existing natural gas pipeline on three separate occasions since 1978. The second report focused on the risks to fish habitat - salmon and steelhead - in the Morice River should there be a pipeline rupture in the watershed. The motion was defeated eight to five, principally on the grounds that directors were not familiar enough with the material. “Unfortunately the time line didn’t allow all of the directors to familiarize themselves with the material,” said Bachrach later. “If they had, I think it would have been a different story.”

While the number of potential pipelines and LNG plants remains uncertain, the EAO has identified broad issues for the largest industrial project ever proposed in B.C. They include: "potential social and economic issues arising from large and mobile capital construction

workforces, injection of longer-term residential workforces in communities with proposed facility projects; potential impacts from increased dust, noise and vibration; water management and potential short-term negative visual impacts." Aboriginal consultation covers the Nisga'a

Nation and several other bands covered by Treaty 8, signed by communities east of the Rocky Mountains in the early 1900s. The EAO will study corridors for pipelines of up to 48 cm diameter, with right of way between 18 and 40 metres wide and up to 800 km long.

Four interesting years


BCTF digs in for endless war Like those Japanese soldiers who didn’t hear about the end of World War II, the militant fringe that controls the B.C. Teachers’ Federation is digging in for endless battle against the B.C. government. Their nemesis, Premier Christy Clark, reiterated last week that seeking a 10-year agreement with the BCTF is a top priority when the legislature is recalled this sum-

mer. The current one-year truce ends June 30. The BCTF grudgingly agreed to that extension last year, then ran TV ads calling for an NDP government that promised concessions and union bosses on both sides of the negotiating table. “You know, I may be a lame duck,” outgoing BCTF president Susan Lambert crowed to cheering classroomwarfare radicals at the union’s convention in March, “but I think Christy’s goose is cooked.” We’ll never know how much this sort of gloating contributed to the epic collapse of the NDP, champion of public sector union members whose pay and benefits make them the new upper class. But I can tell you the prospects for sparing children from this ideological warfare are not good. Last week the B.C. Court of Appeal handed down an ivory-tower decision that upheld the “right” of teachers to bring their union demands into the classroom in the form of posters, buttons and black armbands that to some selfabsorbed teachers symbolize the “death” of education. During the election campaign, The Globe and Mail carried a story on one of those mock elections held in schools around the province. An elementary-level student was quoted as saying she voted against the B.C. Liberals because Clark “caused a teachers’ strike.” If this kid was talking about the most recent strike, I wonder where she got that idea. In a negotiating perBURNS LAKE


formance that was appalling even by BCTF standards, Lambert and her team conducted months of disruptive work-to-rule action before they could even articulate a wage and benefit demand. When they finally did, it was outrageously out of touch with reality. An indication of how the union’s ruling class wants to conduct itself in the classroom can be found in the latest issue of the BCTF newsletter to its members. Joanna Larson, president of the Prince Rupert union local, contributes an article headlined: “What kind of citizen do we hope to graduate from our K-12 public schools?” Larson first quotes the education ministry’s current goals. They include preparing citizens who are “creative, flexible, self-motivated, and who have a positive self-image.” Another goal is citizens who are “skilled and who can contribute to society generally, including the world of work.” Larson then mocks these goals, as follows: “Essentially, the Ministry of Education has a vision of citizens who will maintain the status quo, not rock the boat, and participate on a superficial level in aspects of political and societal change. It doesn’t challenge individuals to take direct action against exploitation, marginalization and violence.” In case you missed the political message, Larson later asserts: “The educated citizens we graduate from our schools cannot just be content to wear a pink shirt once a year…. Educated, engaged citizens must be willing to take direct action to change and shape our society for the better.” What is this ghastly “status quo” that must be challenged by “direct action”? In these campus-radical screeds, the final answer is generally the same: capitalism. This call to arms is a blend of the NDP election platform and a rant from the Occupy Vancouver squat of a couple of years ago. It’s no wonder we hear of students making BCTF picket signs in art class. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

The fresh four-year term handed to the provincial Liberals means that a number of controversial resource-related projects will either come online - or not - during this government’s mandate. Christy Clark promised, when she was in Burns Lake a few weeks ago, to push forward with changes to the B.C. forest act which would facilitate the conversion of some volume-based licenses into areabased licenses. This topic continues to generate phone calls and comments from readers, despite some calls for a moratorium on writing about forest tenure reform. Fall debate (that’s when the legislation is likely to be reintroduced) surrounding the issue will be very different than the last time around, mostly because former MLA for Cariboo North, Bob Simpson, won’t be there. Simpson was a tireless critic of the proposed changes, despite the pressures he felt within his own riding to tone it down a bit. One of the most successful tree farm licences in B.C. is held by Dunkley Lumber, just north of Quesnel. It will be interesting to see if someone rises to fill the void left by Simpson, or if it will be left to independent think tanks like the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives to question provincial forest policy. Who was the official opposition forestry critic during the last round of debate? Quick, without googling it. Exactly. Changes to the forest act aren’t likely to bring people into the streets in protest, but the province’s stance on Enbridge Northern Gateway is another story. Nothing will polarize a room like bringing up the proposed oil pipeline. You won’t find very many people willing to come out and say they are in favour of the pipeline, but it seems that a large but quiet cross-section of B.C.ers want to take a wait-and-see approach. Wait-and-see usually refers to the outcome of the Joint Review Panel (JRP) process about to enter its final round of arguments in Terrace. This process is expected to submit its final recommendation by Dec. 31 of this year. The process has provided a convenient way to side-step taking a position regarding the pipeline project. Will it eventually provide a peg to hang one’s pipeline hat on? I don’t think so. The outcome of the JRP is likely to be entirely anticlimactic. It will probably conclude the project is defensible assuming a list of conditions are met. That would produce a collective ‘no kidding’ that would do nothing to aid the wait-and-see’rs in their decision. The conversation surrounding Enbridge Northern Gateway isn’t about science or pipeline robustness. Engineering is shaped by probabilities, not absolutes. The Enbridge debate is a conversation about risk; either its absolute mitigation, or, the tacit acknowledgment that leaks are possible. If leaks are possible, then enough of the population - especially the population that lives along the pipeline route where it is at its riskiest - seems to be dead set against pipeline construction. If politics is the art of compromise, then there may be no political solution to the pipeline question.

Vultures rare for Burns Lake area


Hwy 16, Fraser Lake


Derrick Denholm and Ben Reynolds were timber-cruising in the Wisteria area for Free Growing Forestry of Burns Lake, when they came across a turkey vulture earlier this month. It was feeding on a decaying moose-calf carcass. The turkey vulture, or the cathartes aura, as the more ornithologically inclined might prefer to call it, is a rare bird in Northern B.C. According to the vulture society, the bird’s summer range includes the southern parts of B.C. and Alberta, and extends to Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America. Despite it’s less than glamorous appearance, the turkey vulture is one of the greatest soaring birds, capable of gliding along thermal lifts over incredible distances. A turkey vulture born in Southern B.C., for example, might spend its winter in Venezuela (proving they are a wise bird as well). Denholm, who said this sighting of the bird was the first time he had ever seen one in the Lakes District in his 25 years of forestry work, suggested a link between this bird’s northward migration and a general trend towards a warming climate in general. “Everything is turned upside down,” he said. “For those who don’t believe that climate change is happening, turkey vultures in Ootsa country is a strange one, that’s for sure.” Local conservation officers report that the bird is occasionally sighted this far north of its usual habitat, but it is a rare occurrence. While one turkey vulture sighting in Ootsa does not make a statistical trend, the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Forest Conservation Genetics (CFCG) has been tracking shifts in the B.C. ecosystem since 2000, and has noted some alarming scenarios.

How about a safe passage?

Editor: I am proposing a safe passage through Saul Creek where it crosses Caroll St. A small excavator can make some switchbacks from the bottom up each side of the creek so that the WKE kids can safely cross this gulley without injury. The current trail is a challenge especially in the winter. This will also provide access to the Saul Creek Trail users from the Carroll St. area. I believe this project should not cost the Village of Burns Lake

much. Perhaps other individuals or businesses could contribute to a fund for this. I believe it will go a long ways to encouraging walking to school, reducing emissions and congestion at the school during pick-up and drop-off times. I am wondering if there is any interest out there and if so let's contact the Village of Burns Lake office to get something going. Albert Vandenberg

Food bank volunteers work hard

Editor: The Lakes District Family Enhancement board has dedicated volunteers who make the Lakes District Food Bank a reality. Without these volunteers the food bank would not run. On a typical distribution day the volunteers prepare over one hundred food boxes for approximately 350 adults and children. As is obvious, the Food Bank has been an essential service for many families and these volunteers are indispensable. A number of these committed individuals have been working tire-

lessly to help reduce hunger for families and children in our community over the last decade. With an increased need for food in the community over the last two years, volunteers have stepped up to prepare twice as many food boxes as usual. It is with a great deal of gratitude, admiration and appreciation that we, the board, acknowledge the volunteers as the backbone of the Food Bank. It is each of you volunteers who do the challenging work that lessens malnutrition and food shortages for families and children which

results in a healthier and happier community. To show the board’s appreciation for these workers there will be a volunteer appreciation luncheon on June 18 at 1:30 p.m., at the Grapevine for food bank volunteers. If you have volunteered over the last year at the food bank please confirm your attendance with Joanna at 250 692 3029. Yours sincerely, Anne Guarasci, President of the Lakes District Family Enhancement Society

Viewpoint By Hugh Neave

Looking back in the day with Barney Mulvaney

Barney Mulvaney I have at hand a record of some of the old history written by Barney Mulvaney, the founder and once owner of Burns Lake and I will quote from his account. “I first camped at Burns Lake in 1906 when I was making a dog team trip from Hazelton to the Nass River and back to Quesnel with inspector Ned Charleson. First Nations here at that time were Tommy Michell and Alex Michell with their wives and families. They could speak very little English and only a smattering of Chinook, which I was conversant with. These First Na-

tions were in a destitute condition, living on fish, meat and dried berries. One horse was on the verge of starvation, so I bought it for dog food.” It was until 1917 that the sale of lots was held in Burns Lake and the first hotel was built by Barney Mulvaney at about the same time. It was called The Cheslatta after Boss Carpenter and his sons who were the first settlers in the Cheslatta valley. George McKenzie took over the hotel and sold it to Andy Ruddy in 1921. Another quote from Barney’s records. “That night after a wild poker game in the drying town of Priestley I found myself the owner of all the tents with their contents and all their equipment.” This was and still is the original site of Burns Lake. There are not too many towns that can boast having had the town site won in a poker game. I am left to wonder who the guy

was who lost the game or how honest was the game. I have only quoted a very small part of this report of Barney’s and its all very interesting. When I got into the taxi business in the 40s up to the 60s poker was the game, big time in Burns Lake. Every week there would be a big game either at ‘The Bucket of Blood’ downtown or on the island at Jack Wilkinson’s place. Three finger Jack was the nick name that Jack went under. All the boys with the big money played at Jack’s. Jack McDougal was living at Francois Lake and he was my best customer as every weekend I would take him in for his big time poker game. Jack had been a big time gambler in the Yukon gold rush. The story has it that he was at one time married to the lady known as ‘Lou,’ mentioned in Robert Service’s book of poems that are so well known. Service tells of

the lady known as Lou in the shooting of Dan McGrew, one of my favourite poems. Sometimes during the big games I would get called in to visit the bootlegger and pick up a few bottles of whiskey and maybe a case of beer or so. Lots of the players I would know very well but that was a secret I was sworn to keep and I did. I still remember the names. I never saw so much cash laying on the table in my life. This had always been an eye opener for me. Brother Peter was driving cab for Carlson Bros. at the same time and he would take gamblers to different games. At one time there was a big team of horses, harness and all, put up in a game. This team had been won and lost so many times they almost could load by themselves. The team and harness were put up for a $1000. Peter gave me the man’s name who had

owned the team to start with but he would rather not mention it. Lots of the players would be drinking which was not very smart in a poker game. Jack McDougal told me he would never drink during a poker game and I guess he was smart. It’s interesting that both these two big time gamblers Jack McDougal and Jack Wilkinson were missing fingers on one hand but were still good poker players. Jack was good to me and generous too. I never ever saw him smile or heard him laugh. He had a poker face which I guess goes with being a poker player. He only had a thumb and one finger on his right hand but he could do things with a deck of cards that would make your eyes pop out. I asked him once how he had lost his middle finger and he would not tell me. I did hear he lost them in a big poker game at a big game in the Yu-

kon. Jack was a real character and a kind of a guy if you met him you would not forget him. Save water I notice in our last paper about saving our drinking water. And telling us why we need to protect it? And why should we. There was a person on TV talking about this very thing and one thing he said and I quote “One of the greatest things that will be facing our world in the future will be the shortage of drinking water.” A bit scary. I know we all ask how can this be? We look out and see our beautiful lakes, how can this happen to us. We are so fortunate to have our water. So many folks are now buying drinking water and I for one think to myself, how can this happen to us? After coming from Saskatchewan where we came through the big dry where water was almost like gold. When the rains came at last and things were

normal again we would still have to be careful how we used water. This last visit to the home place I noticed a large pond and in the middle was a big pipe running full bore clean, fresh water and I just could not believe what I saw. I was told as they were drilling for oil they hit an artesian well and they were selling water to the big oil drillers. And to think we were on top of an artesian well from 1906 when our dad homesteaded the Eyehill place to the time we left in 1941, over 60 years. Nice visit Last week we had the pleasure to have the Decker Lake choir come in for a visit to the Tweedsmuir House. It’s so uplifting to hear all the old hymns again. Thank you all. Slow down as the roads are getting busy with the summer traffic. Remember the life you save could be your own. No matter what God loves you and so do I.

RECREATION SITES ONE THOUSAND YARD SHOT A competitor at the 38 Annual 1000 yard shoot at the Tweedsmuir Rod and Gun Club in Burns Lake last weekend takes aim. The target is at the far end of the clearing, not even visible in this photograph. Results will be in next weeks paper.


Southside official plan put down

Referendum sought by plan opponents WALTER STRONG

In an unexpected move, the Regional District of Bulkley Nechako (RDBN) decided against moving forward with the Southside Official Community Plan (OCP) which has been in the works for almost three years. As reported in Lakes District News on April 16, 2013, a late rally of concerned and vocal Southside residents objected to what they took to be the RDBN proceeding with a plan about which they hadn’t been fully informed. Southside First Nations also objected to the plan which some claimed was being considered for implementation without adequate prior consultation. Ten First Nations were identified by the RDBN as having either interest in, or traditional claim to, territories within Electoral Area E (Southside). In a document submitted by RDBN staff, efforts made by the regional district to engage with all First Nations were itemized, described and dated. Despite the best efforts of the RDBN, three First Nations - Skin Tyee Nation, Nee-Tahi-Buhn Band, and Cheslatta Carrier Nation - were each signatories to a letter to RDBN staff and directors indicating what they took to be the complete failure of the RDBN to consult with or otherwise approach any of the three bands or their chiefs regarding the Southside plan. The letter threatened ‘collective legal

action’ should the draft OCP not be withdrawn. Faced with possible further costs to the RDBN should the implementation of the Southside OCP be challenged in the courts, Steve Freeman, director of Area E, presented a motion to not move forward with the OCP. “At this time I’d like to make a recommendation that the OCP not be approved and that staff use the draft as an unofficial resource when considering land use issues and applications on the Southside,” said Freeman. Staff recommendation was to continue with the consultation process and nail down the specifics regarding First Nations objections to the OCP. Freeman did not want to proceed down that road at the moment, citing the significant costs that have already been associated with developing the draft proposal. “I feel that there’s so much coming down from First Nations that another hearing isn’t going to do us any good,” he said. “The amount of money and resources being put into this is getting astronomical.” Bill Miller, RDBN chairperson, concurred with Freeman. “Since the OCP is not a regulatory document - it’s meant to be a guide for us and for board members to understand what the public wants - I think there’s an opportunity that we can build on [here],”

Miller said. Addressing the time and resources put into the development of the plan, Freeman suggested that the document can still serve as a valuable resource to the RDBN. “I believe the document is very useful as ...see PLAN

Southside mud bogging fun for all

Senior Slo-pitch

Local Southsider Wayne Wood captured this mud fun at Grassy Plains Hall. The annual mud bog races were held last weekend and it wasn’t just the 4x4 that got muddy. The kids got to run down the mud bog and the first one to cross the line received $50. There were over 350 people in SUBMITTED PHOTOS attendance and 28 trucks entered in the event.

A group of six 55+ athletes are hoping that 10 other senior slo-pitch players will join them to form a team to participate in the Kamloops BC Senior Games on Aug. 20-24. Contact Robbie Alex at 250-6922315 for more info.

Officially unofficial plan PLAN from ▼ P7 it sits,” he said. “It might not be an official community plan, but it’s a plan that the staff can use to look at any applications that come forward in the future.” Cheslatta Carrier Nation, Chief Richard Peters, commented later in the week that he was satisfied with the board’s decision to not move forward with the OCP. “Consultation needs to reflect the grassroots people,” Peters said. He also reiterated the call for referendum should the issue be revisited in the future. Information has to be more available to residents of the Southside, Peters said, so that the

mandate for an OCP can come from the people and not form the top down. “That information

needs to be passed along to all members of the Southside, whether they are native or nonnative.”

The motion to not move forward with the Southside OCP was carried unanimously by RDBN board members.

However, it has to be done this week if you are to move on to something else that needs attention. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, unless you can censor yourself, it’s best to avoid social situations this week. There are too many chances for you to say something that can get you into trouble.

To use each of these functions, remember to hold down the Windows Button (aka WinKey) in the lower left corner of your keyboard, then tap the second key. WinKey + D - Opens the Windows Desktop. WinKey + X - Opens the Power Users menu, which is like a striped down version of the old Start menu, WinKey + C - Opens the Charms menu on the right side of the screen WinKey + I - Opens the Settings menu Winkey + Print Screen - Takes a screenshot and automatically saves it to your My Pictures Library WinKey + Tab - Shows all open Apps. And if you can’t figure out how to close an app in Windows 8, remember the old Windows mainstay: Alt + F4

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, it’s been a challenge balancing everything, but this week you will finally fall into a groove. Your spouse or a close friend will be instrumental to your success. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, creative thinking can present clever ways to handle mundane tasks or special things that need attention. ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, frustration sets in and it is easy to get pushed to your limit. A close friend can put you in better spirits in a matter of minutes. Connect with this person. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you will be in a social mood this week and that means that a party or some other event is certain to be in your future. Open up the event to many for extra fun.

Most people would say that we are a drinking establishment. It has been said that the Legion represents war and drinking. This is a misconception. The Legion stands for remembrance. We are charged with the responsibility of remembering those that put their lives on the line for our freedoms. Many paid the ultimate price by giving their lives and we must not forget them. Yes, most Legions (not all) do operate a bar, but that is not our main objective. The business of the Legion is to offer support to our Veterans. The Royal Canadian Legion has 1500 Branches in Canada, USA and Europe, 152 of them are in BC alone.

Richard Kenneth Harry Brown July 7, 1940 - April 22, 2013

A Celebration of Life

for Richard will be held 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 23rd, 2013 in 1st Mennonite Church at 530 Kerr Road, Burns Lake, BC. Richard passed away suddenly at the age of 72 and ‘RK’ or ‘Dick’ as he was know to many will be greatly missed by family and friends. He was born and grew up in Armstrong, BC. but took grade 12 in Kitimat, BC. After graduation he worked in sawmills, then was employed by Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks on a trail crew, as Assistant Warden and Assistant Storeman. In the parks an accident caused by inexperienced fallers affected his health the rest of his life and it was also there he met his wife Helen (Tegart) who worked in the Parks office. They were married on June 30th, 1962. He worked as a butcher in Revelstoke, then housebuilding with his father. Later he became a teacher and taught in Williams Lake for 8 years at Columneetza Secondary School, took a year off to work at a taxidermist shop and house build, then taught 20 years in Burns Lake at Lakes District Secondary School. Among his treasures was a framed letter from ex-student Rick Hanson. His favourite courses to teach were drafting, forestry, woodworking and the new computerized AutoCad program. Richard loved to play his guitar, downhill ski, cross-country ski, play volleyball and basketball, snowshoe, ride his horse, go on fishing trips, canoe, golf, bowhunt and rockhound. In his last years he ‘hunted’ with a camera taking hundreds of animal and bird photos and was thrilled to win with one on Global TV, have several pictures in the local paper and publications, receive two trophies from a photography group and have a special rock featured in the BC Lapidary calendar. He loved music and was a member of the local Community Choir for many years, sang with a small group of friends and taught himself to play guitar. He obtained his pilot’s license and flew small planes out of a Vanderhoof club until health reasons prevented it. Richard and his wife Helen made trips with their travel trailer to the Yukon, Alberta, Saskatchewan and many areas of BC. When the family home was lost to fire he built a new one with his family as ‘crew’. Last year Richard and Helen celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Richard is survived by: his wife Helen, daughter Shannon Brown and sons Keith Brown (Tracey), Wayne Brown (Liz West), and Chris Brown. Brothers: William Brown (Denise), Larry Brown, and Dennis Brown (Ivy). Granddaughter Jenna Brown. Grandsons: Curtis Brown, Spencer Brown and Jackson West. Nieces: Patty Brown (Terry), Debbie Evans (Greg), and Cathy Henley. Cousins: Edith Barkley (Freddie), Norman Morrison (Carol), Dorothy Brown (Rod). Nephews: Cliff Harrison, Lorne Harrison, Chuck Henley, Ken Henley (Kathy), Dwayne Henley (Trudy), and their children and grandchildren, sister-in-law Marlene Matsen, her son Mark and daughter Brenda (Glenn) and Marlene’s grandchildren. Predeceased by: his father Charles Henry (Harry) Brown and his mother Jessie Catherine Brown, his sisters Janet Henley (Frank) and Doris Harrison (Dave), his nephew Gary Henley, foster son Max and sister-in-law Carol Brown. People who wish to donate to a charity in memory of Richard could donate to a charity of their choice, The Rick Hanson Research Fund or to the local Terry Fox Run.
