The airport dike will remain 'as is' for now. The community voted a definitive 'no' in last month's diking referendum.

Valley residents vote a resounding ‘no’ in dike referendum CAITLIN THOMPSON The residents of the Bella Coola Valley have spoken loud and clear in regards to whether or not they will support the CCRD’s efforts to become a diking authority, and the answer was a definitive no. Two bylaws were passed in recent months paving the way towards the referen-

dum. Bylaws 415 and 416, which would establish the Bella Coola Dike Service and authorize the borrowing of over one million dollars respectively, were passed earlier this year. On May 25, residents were asked whether or not they supported these initiatives. Out of an estimated 1000 eligible voters, 458 turned out to cast their votes. 30 voted yes,

and 428 voted no. To be eligible to vote, you had to be over 18 years and a registered property owner or renter in the Bella Coola Valley. Nuxalk Nation members residing on IR#1 were unable to vote because they do not pay property taxes while living on reserve. “It’s difficult to determine the percentage of voters who cast a ballot,” said Acting

CAO Isabell Hadford. “The latest census figures from 2011 show that 1,067 people live in Areas C, D, and E of the Bella Coola Valley, however we don’t know how many of these people are of voting age and these figures may have changed since 2011. The number of valid votes cast was 458 and the CCRD is pleased that so many people took the time to vote.”

Taking on the airport dike was a controversial choice, and many residents expressed that they felt that private property should be afforded the same level of protection. However, the CCRD responded that the federal and provincial governments’ would only look at funding the airport dike as it provided SEE FUTURE ON PAGE 3

Interfor says it has ‘no immediate plans’ to log in Labouchere Channel Caitlin Thompson Interfor has temporarily ceased its logging operation in the Dean Channel and has publicly stated it has no intention of logging Labouchere Channel anytime in the near future. The company obtained a timber license for the area in 1997 and had started logging in a cutblock above Brynildsen Bay in the Dean Channel about two weeks ago, but has since stopped. Cutblocks are also mapped out in Labouchere Channel, but the company has stated that they will not be harvesting timber in that area until discussions with the Nuxalk Nation are finalized. The entire operation consists of six cutblocks, four in

Labouchere and two in the Dean Channel. One cutblock above Brynildsen Bay, in the Dean Channel, backs directly onto private property currently being operated as a tourism business by Valley residents. In response to their concerns, Interfor agreed to cease operations until a consensus had been reached. “We started logging in the Dean Channel but stopped to address the needs of landowners,” said Karen Brandt, Interfor’s Public Affairs and Corporate Communications Director. “After discussions with them, we can now confirm that the block nearest to their property will be about one-third less to address their concerns regarding visuals and their waterline.” Interfor has stated

that their plan is to log 15,000 cubic metres in the Dean Channel beginning in June, with an approximate 30 percent retention of the timber in each cutblock. Interfor maintains that these are smaller logging operations, utilizing helicopters to remove the timber once it has been felled, and that there will be no roads or clearcuts. “Our plan is to use a helicopter to yard out the timber,” said Brandt. “We are aware there are sensitive times during fishing and ecotourism, so we are not going to run the helicopters until midSeptember.” In spite of Interfor’s current conciliatory approach, their relationship with the residents of Bella Coola remains strained by

negative experiences in the past. In 2003, the CCRD and the Nuxalk Nation issued a Notice of Eviction to Interfor, Kwatna Timber, and Helifor Ltd. after ‘losses of nine million dollars due to the closure of Interfor’s Mid Coast office and the closing of the Mid Coast Forest District offices.’ “I cannot comment directly on the past as it predates my time with Interfor,” said Brandt. “As far as I’m concerned, we are dealing with today. We are committed to understanding the community’s needs and making sure we maintain an open line of communication.” At the time of the eviction notice, the CCRD and the Nuxalk Nation were particularly incensed by Interfor’s decision to send in outside contractors to harvest the remaining timber on their forest license tenure while the Valley languished in unemployment. When questioned about their current practices in employing local people, Brandt stated that due to the highly specialized nature of the timber removal, most of Interfor’s crew would be brought into the site on the Dean Channel. “We do have a fall-

Future of Diking uncertain

ing crew of about 12 people, of which a few are local to Bella Coola,” said Brandt. “However, we do expect more employment opportunities once the yarding begins.” Interfor says that the Nuxalk are aware of its plans to continue their operation in the Dean Channel and that there is open dialogue between the two parties regarding plans to log in Labouchere. “It’s an ongoing process,” said Brandt. “We have no intention of logging there anytime in the near future.” Chief Councilor Wally Webber of the Nuxalk Nation said that there has been continuing consultation with Interfor for the past year, but that the Nuxalk band council still remains strongly opposed to any plans to log in Labouchere. “We have traditionally used Labouchere for fishing and cultural forestry practices such as harvesting cedar,” said Webber. “Just few years ago our Nuxalk fisherman harvested boat stems there, and we traditionally food fished and lived there to build canoes. So, we are not in support of any logging in Labouchere.”

a service to the entire community. It was indicated at the public meeting held last April that both the federal and provincial governments’ would not be willing to consider future proposals from the Valley if the residents voted no on the referendum, but this has not been confirmed by the Coast Mountain News. If the referendum had passed, the CCRD would have been responsible for the construction and maintenance costs of the airport dike, resulting in a tax hike of 30 percent. Depending on which area you live, this would have cost anywhere between $67 and $153 per year. If the CCRD had borrowed the million dollars, this would have taken taxpayers approximately 30 years to repay. At present, there has been no indication on future plans from the CCRD. “The Regional District is very pleased to have had such a definite respond to the Airport Dike project referendum question,” said Hadford. “Next steps will be discussed at the June 13 Board meeting.”

The Staff and Administration of Acwsalcta School would like to wish the Acwsalcta Grads of 2013 all the best for a happy and prosperous future!

Reader strongly objects to any logging in Labouchere Channel Dear Cyndy Grant, CC: Coast Mountain News Re: Letter to Interfor to protect Labouchere Channel from logging My letter is a protest regarding the application by International Forest Products Limited of Campbell River for a foreshore license of occupation - industrial, Log handling (six sites) in Labouchere Channel - according to File number 1413669. While the Canadian government is short-circuiting all habitat protection in favour of resource extraction, it has no jurisdiction over Nuxalkmc territory. The Nuxalkmc have lived here for thousands years. The land was never ceded to the Canadian government through treaty; therefore, the Canadian government has no right to negotiate the use of Crown lands. Furthermore, in a session of the United Nations, the Canadian government signed the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. They have agreed to stand by that Declaration. The B.C. and Canadian governments have no jurisdiction in Nuxalk territory. I refer you to the Royal proclamation of 1763, as additional support

Leon Barnett, Realtor 250-982-2704

for my reasoning. Our family eats wild salmon three to four times every week. We live on salmon. If the salmon die, we will die. Salmon and marine life has kept First Nations people alive for thousands of years. The Nuxalkmc have struggled over centuries to be good stewards of their territory. They had a culture that knew how to live in concert with their natural elements. They had to do so or die. We can’t eat paper money and keep living. Marine life for us is priceless. When I say "NO" to logging, I am saying "YES" to my food supply. SOS = save our Salmon!!! You are asking for permission for a license to kill off entire species of marine life, wild life, vegetation, and, in the end, human life. We are a small part of the food chain and we have to protect our food source from unnatural disasters. I believe that the end result of logging in this area will be a disaster. I strongly object to this application by Interfor for logging in Labouchere Channel. Yours, Gail Moody Bella Coola, B.C.

An imminent catastrophe? Dear Editor, The cause of the sinking of the Queen of the North was said to be caused by undue diligence of a dysfunctional crew, and could not be blamed on the weather or mechanical condition of the ship. From the information I have regarding the body of people supposed to be governing Bella Coola, I immediately thought of the similarity to this ferry incident, and how long it will be before someone starts steering the ‘ship’ in a responsible manner. When will the passengers (taxpayers) ‘wake up’ to the fact that a dangerous

course is being set by the current administration attempting to foist a scam on them, and that another catastrophe of a different sort is imminent, for the residents of the Valley? I applaud the people responsible for providing residents and others with all the information given in the paper, the Coast Mountain News. They are a dedicated group who do a splendid service to the community, and should be commended for that. The three letters to the editor regarding the airport and upcoming referendum were also well put, and provided additional information as to

the feelings of some residents. I am told that the airport was only unusable for one or two days at the time of the peak ‘100 year’ flood. But we all know that our weather of rain, fog, and snow can keep the airport unusable for longer periods of time, as it is for VFR use only. Therefore the Medivac’s and scheduled aircraft resort to transporting passengers to Anahim Lake, and delay or cancel departures until the weather improves. Sincerely, Gideon Schuetze Bella Coola

B.C. rejects Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal CBC News The B.C. government has rejected a proposal for the Northern Gateway pipeline project, saying it fails to address the province's environmental concerns. The province made the announcement in its final written submission to the Northern Gateway Pipeline Joint Review Panel. “British Columbia thoroughly reviewed all of the evidence and submissions

made to the panel and asked substantive questions about the project, including its route, spill response capacity and financial structure to handle any incidents,” said Environment Minister Terry Lake. “Our questions were not satisfactorily answered during these hearings.” Lake said the province has carefully reviewed the evidence presented to the panel. “The panel must determine if it is

appropriate to grant a certificate for the project as currently proposed on the basis of a promise to do more study and planning after the certificate is granted,” Lake said. “Our government does not believe that a certificate should be granted before these important questions are answered.” The panel will have the final say on whether the project will go ahead. Christy Clark’s Liberal government had outlined five

‘conditions’ the pipeline would have to meet to proceed. On Friday, the province also reiterated the five conditions it says would need to be met in order to approve the pipeline, including top-notch oil spill prevention and response measures. These include: environmental review needs to be passed, world-leading marine oil spill prevention, response, worldleading practices for land oil spill preven-

tion, response, First Nations opportunities, treaty rights respected, and a fair share of the fiscal and economic benefits for B.C. “Northern Gateway has said that they would provide effective spill response in all cases. However, they have presented little evidence as to how they will respond,” Lake said. “For that reason, our government cannot support the issuance of a certificate for

the pipeline as it was presented to the joint review panel.” However, the statement from the province goes on to say “the position adopted by B.C. on the Northern Gateway Pipeline project as currently proposed is not a rejection of heavy-oil projects,” keeping the door open to Kinder Morgan's proposed expansion to the Kinder Morgan pipeline and a $13-billion crude oil refinery near Kitimat proposed

Bella Coola Police Report – June 2013 On 2013-05-23 Bella Coola RCMP received a report of a theft from vehicle in the 4 mile Subdivision. The following day another report of a theft from vehicle was received. On both incidents the thief or thieves stole money which was left in the vehicle. Neither vehicle was locked at the time of the theft and the Bella Coola RCMP are reminding everyone that no one is immune to crime

and to make sure you lock vehicle doors. Bella Coola RCMP is seeking the assistance of the public to locate Bryan Everett O’REILLY, age 25. O’REILLY is wanted on multiple arrest warrants from Bella Coola. The current charges are: Escape Lawful Custody in Bella Coola from December of 2012, Assault Causing Bodily Harm from January of 2013, Breach conditions of Probation.

Bryan Everett O'Reilly is wanted by Bella Coola RCMP

O’REILLY is described as Native, 6'1", 190 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes. If you have information regarding any of these incidents, please call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 or the Bella Coola RCMP at 250 799-5363. Crime stoppers also subscribes to web tips at www.bccrimestoppers.com During the past 2 weeks there has been a marked increase in the number of reports of thefts from

vehicles and businesses. The common denominator in all of these incidents is that the vehicles or premises were not locked or valuables properly secured. These thefts were crimes of opportunity, the property was easily observed and no damage was done to take it. This is a good time to take a look at your home, business and vehicles security practices to ensure you are not the victim of

a preventable theft. Lock doors and secure valuables out of view, take control of the number of keys for locks and if necessary replace locks or have them re-keyed if you don’t know how many copies are in distribution. If you have concerns or would like advice on better securing your property, please contact the Bella Coola RCMP Detachment to discuss alternatives.

Former Superintendent of SD #49 dismissed from Arrow Lakes School District BY JAN MCMURRAY VILLAGE VOICE Denise Perry has been dismissed as superintendent/ secretary-treasurer of School District No. 10 (Arrow Lakes) effective May 22. Perry was hired last summer to replace Walter Posnikoff, who held the position for many years. Chair of the Arrow Lakes board of education, Pattie

Adam, explained that the board felt Perry was not fitting in well with the district. “It was a very difficult decision we had to make,” she said in a telephone interview. “I think in the long run, we learned a lot about ourselves and how we run.” The acting superintendent/ secretary-treasurer role has been taken on by long-time SD10 employee, Terry Taylor. Adam explained that the Province would help the board

find someone to come in and assist Taylor. That person should be in place by the end of the week. “It is a matter of making it through the school year with the least disruption to students as possible. The students are why we’re doing everything we’re doing,” said Adam. “We will work hard to do our best during this time, and ask everyone to bear with us and help us along.” Adam said the hiring process

that led to Perry’s appointment was “a good and thoughtful process” but, “It’s just one of those things. You can’t always be sure until you try things sometimes.” She said the board is “much more knowledgeable now” and will be discussing whether combining the superintendent and secretary-treasurer positions is the way they want to continue on or not. She said the Province would help them with this decision, as well.

“Other districts are thinking strictly of educational purposes for the district as the superintendent’s role, whereas the secretary/treasurer looks after the business end of things. The board is learning what a valuable person we had in the former superintendent, who designed and invented the superintendent/secretary-treasurer position,” Adam said.

Flood effects in Bella Coola: Impact on health BY CHRISTINA BOUCHER Residents of the Bella Coola Valley experienced an emergency event due to flooding that officially lasted from September 23 to 25. The effects of that event, however, are much more long-lasting for many people. The flood event of 2011 was a painful reminder of the 2010 flood in the Valley, which had a devastating effect on the lives of residents who experienced

damage to their homes, businesses, and surrounding land. Additionally, this year’s flood caused a wave of distress and anxiety for many people who are still faced with clean-up from 2010. “It’s normal for people to feel stress and anxiety in the face of traumatic events like the flooding,” commented Carole Clark, Mental Health Department Manager at the Bella Coola General Hospital. “I’d like to see

it become more normal for people to seek supports sooner for that ongoing stress and anxiety.” Due to realities of dealing with flood clean-up, pursuing compensation through insurance or government agencies, or managing other issues related to the loss of personal or business items, stress could be having a detrimental effect on your health. Everyone responds in a different way to stressful situations; therefore, everyone has

different health needs. Research shows that the effects of experiencing a natural disaster such as a major flood can have long-lasting effects that continue for months or even years. In some cases, symptoms may not even begin to appear until months or years later. Stress can occur from good events (such as a wedding or starting a new job) or bad events, but it becomes a prob-

lem when we are unsure of how to handle an event. The first stage of stress involves the body’s mobilization of energy: you feel your heart beat faster and your breathing get faster as the body releases adrenaline. This reaction leads to what most people call the “fight or flight” mechanism, and helps a person to get moving SEE
