City looks for second overpass THE CLOSURE of the Frank St. level rail crossing last week gives the city leverage to insist that a second overpass be built, says mayor Dave Pernarowski. Transport Canada ordered CN to block the crossing to vehicle traffic after a CN train went into an emergency stop June 4 to avoid hitting a logging truck that had been blocking the tracks.

The problem is that there is not enough room between the tracks and the intersection of Frank St. with Hwy16 for lengthy vehicles to safely wait until they can proceed on to the highway. The result is that the back portions of lengthy vehicles then block the tracks. CN crews followed the CN order by placing concrete barriers

blocking vehicle traffic the afternoon of June 11. The move angered residents and, in particular, Keith Ave. industrial and other businesses who used the Frank St. crossing. Even without the closure, which has forced traffic to the Kenney St. level street crossing and the Sande Overpass, there had been calls for a second overpass.

That's because rail traffic has been growing with the development of port facilities of Prince Rupert, resulting in long waits at level crossings for trains to clear the intersections. “I think now we can address the issues of traffic and improvements concerning a grade separation as part of a long-term plan,” said Pernarowski last week.

Although not directly critical of the closure, the mayor did say there is increasing pressure now on Kenney and on the Sande Overpass. “I'm not sure if this is improving safety,” said Pernarowski of the closure. “It can be just as dangerous on Kenney,” he said of traffic conditions on that crossing.

■ Men at work BANDSTRA TRANSPORTATION drivers stand in front of part of a fleet of trucks loaded with mechanical lifts destined for the Red Chris copper and gold mine now under construction up Hwy37 North. The lifts were provided by United Rentals for the companies working on the Imperial Metals project. Bandstra sent 15 trucks to the mine location on June 11 and June 12. The mine is scheduled to open late next spring and will use power from BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line which is also under construction and scheduled to be finished late next spring.

Little Ave. demolitions trudge forward By JOSH MASSEY DEMOLITION OF one of three Little Ave. buildings declared unsafe by the city began over the weekend. George Vogel, acting as the agent for his mother's estate, the owner of the Second World Warera barracks building at 4450 Little Ave., had been given an extension until May 24 following an impassioned presentation to city council in January. Accompanying the demolition work was a city move to turn the water off June 17 and, according

to a city report, “sanitary service laterals will be capped within a week.” City official David Block said Vogel has applied for a demolition permit. That's in conjunction with a deal Vogel and local roofing contractor – and former BC Conservative Party candidate – Mike Brousseau have to purchase the property. “I'm disassembling it, not demolishing it,” Brousseau said last week of his plans. He said everything from the roof materials to the window frames can be salvaged for re-use.

Meanwhile, right next door at 4440 Little Ave., owner Lloyd Wittkowski, with the assistance of Brousseau who also wants to buy the property, has almost finished demolishing a similar structure to that on the Vogel property. Block, the city's development services director, said a letter was sent to Wittkowski telling him to speed up the work. Demolition was supposed to be finished April 20 and all that remains now are a few building fragments. Block said work appears to have slowed down on the third building ordered demolished which is

owned by Wayne Kirby at 4520 Little Ave. One portion of the structure has been removed but another, which had been a rental accommodation, still stands. That building once served as a hospital operated by Red Cross. Both Vogel and Kerby previously have told council that the demolition orders caused them significant financial strain. Kerby has until July 19 to complete the teardown. The city said in the past that if the owners do not comply with demolition orders the city will do the

work and send the owners the bills. “We have to make the city happy first,” Mike Brousseau said of his demolition work. Once Brousseau has title to the properties he wants, he says he'll follow through on a plan to construct accommodation for people who need to learn job skills. That plan was part of his campaign platform in May's provincial election. Brousseau is calling his plan TAG, the Terrace Association of Do-gooders. This is a change from the plan’s first name, the Terrace Assembly of Gatherers.

Austin gets new critic portfolio SKEENA NDP MLA Robin Austin was named his party’s critic for the provincial government’s plan to create a liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry June 14. He’ll be shadowing Rich Coleman, the province’s natural gas development minister, a new position created to reflect the importance Premier Christy Clark has placed on developing an industry she says will produce enough revenue to wipe out the provincial government’s debt and keep its budgets balanced. “I’m a big guy but I still think there’s going to be room for me in his shadow,” said Austin of the physical presence of not only himself but of Coleman. Austin, who had been the NDP critic for elementary and secondary education before the May provincial election, said he wanted an economic portfolio when leader Adrian Dix reorganized his caucus. “It does make total sense,” said Austin in that the Skeena riding takes in Kitimat, the location for up to three

And off to the side is Adrian Dix, the leader of the NDP. LNG plants and adjoins the North Coast riding where two LNG plants are planned. Austin said that while he and the NDP support the development of an LNG industry and of the economic benefits it could provide, any such plan needs to be realistic. “So far there’s been a lot of hyperbole about

this,” said Austin. He said the province needs to quickly understand the huge amount of power LNG plants need to convert natural gas into a liquid for export overseas. “Where is all this energy going to come from and how will that equate to the government’s legislated goal, legislation brought in

by Gordon Campbell, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2020,” Austin queried. He said the province also needs to address the security of the province’s water supply given the huge amounts needed in “fracking” to release natural gas from underground rock formations. “People think that

because it rains a lot here, we have a lot of water. But we don’t,” said Austin. “We need to best understand how to make the best use of this public resource.” Rookie North Coast NDP MLA Jennifer Rice is the critic for rural and northern health and Stikine NDP MLA Doug Donaldson is the critic for aboriginal affairs. A3

Kitselas elect new chief councillor JOE Bevan has been elected chief councillor of the Kitselas First Nation in a vote June 12. Bevan, who has had three years of experience as a councillor, received 87 votes compared to 65 for his closest challenger, Glenn Bennett, who at one time was chief councillor. Debbie Moore ran third with 34 votes and Shirley Gray fourth with 20 votes. Five people were elected to the Kitselas councillor with Clarisa Spencer, a member of the Kitselas First Nation’s treaty negotiations team, placing first with 91 votes. This is to be her first term on council. Placing second with 89 votes was incumbent Gerald Seymour, third with 78 votes was incumbent Wilfred Bennett Sr., fourth with 74 votes was incumbent Web Bennett and fifth with 72 votes was Judy Gerow. Gerow had been chief councillor for the past two years but decided not to run for the top spot again. Eighteen people in all ran for the five council seats. Kitselas First Nation voters earlier this year approved of a land claims treaty agreement in principle with the federal and provincial governments containing land, cash and self government provisions. It is now providing the basis for talks leading to a final agreement. The Kitselas First Nation is also involved in several high profile economic activities. It cleared the right of way on its traditional territory for BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line now under construction and also cleared right of way on its traditional territory for the Pacific Trails Pipeline, the natural gas line that would feed a planned liquefied natural gas plant at Kitimat.

Frank St. dispute has a history THE closure of the Frank St. level rail crossing last week is a very public sign of a dispute between CN, the city and the province dating back years. At stake is not only the safety of the crossing, the reason Transport Canada ordered its closing, but the role it plays in the City of Terrace's ultimate goal – a second overpass spanning CN's increasingly-busy rail lines running through the centre of town. Correspondence between all parties, according to city files, dates back to at least 1994 when a Transport Canada official first suggested to CN and the province that traffic lights be installed both at the Kenney St. level crossing and at Frank St. The concern then as now is that long-length trucks block the tracks when stopped at the Frank St. intersection with Hwy16 until it is safe to turn on to the highway. That's because there isn't enough space between the tracks and the intersection of Frank St. with the highway to contain a long vehicle without a portion of that vehicle sitting on the tracks. Correspondence continued into 1995 and 1996 with the issue expanding beyond highway traffic lights to include track warning lights and gates such as those now installed on the Kenney St. level crossing. CN does tell Transport Canada it will install flashing light signals but also tells the city it will not install gate arms because the city objects to gates until the province installs traffic lights. For its part, the province says it has no money for traffic lights, a position that remains consistent as the years go on. At one point, the city offers to pay for warning devices “provided that gate arms will not be attached until such time as the traffic lights are installed” by the province. In November 1998, the city agrees to restrict long vehicle traffic from crossing the tracks to come to the intersection of Frank St. and the highway until a longer


orange-painted concrete barriers and traffic cones block, at least for now, vehicles from using Frank St. where it is bisected by CN’s mainline. term solution can be found. But it reverses that decision the next month because of subsequent traffic problems created at other crossings in the city. In 1999, Transport Canada warns it will itself issue an order restricting long vehicle traffic should improvements not be made. The city's Frank St. file jumps to 2007, the year the federal government made available $4.5 million for a second overpass projected to cost $9 million. But in 2010, the city file indicates, CN decides a second overpass isn't needed. And in 2012, when the city revived the second overpass effort, its file says the grant application to the federal government was denied because neither CN nor the provincial government would make a financial commitment.

“We confirm that this project is not required for railway purposes,” writes CN in a letter to the federal government. But it acknowledges that a second overpass would reduce vehicle travel time and congestion and lower vehicle greenhouse gas emissions. “CN would not oppose the city's project provided that CN is not required to provide any financial contribution to its realization,” the letter ends. Concern about Frank St. accelerated in 2012 after a CN train went into an emergency stop to prevent an accident with a 25-metre tractor trailer on Aug. 15, 2012. Long vehicles “are hanging over CN railway tracks while trying to engage provincial Highway 16, losing awareness that they may be hit by CN freight or passenger

Here’s what you had to say: News of the Frank St. level rail crossing closure sparked a high number of comments on The Terrace Standard’s website. Here are some of those comments: “As a resident of Agar Ave. I can assure you the entire neighbourhood will be complaining to the city if truck traffic on Agar increases. It took years to get this traffic reduced. Agar and even Kenney have recently been repaved with RESIDENTIAL quality asphalt, not commercial traffic grade. Heavy transports will break this up pretty quickly.” – Ray Hallock ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ “I use this crossing to pick up the kids from daycare. Too bad to see it go.” – Laura McGregor ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ “Maybe CN and the Ministry should step up to the plate and look at solving this issue. The amount of train traffic we put up with in this area we should have better access.

CN makes more than enough money to help pay for an additional crossing. The ministry would probably be all over having this problem solved if it was anywhere down south. I don’t think we should jump on the city. We should get together as a town and get CN and the ministry to get this solved.” – Arlene Ridler ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ “Wow...I would like to see the statistics of fatalities at that Frank Street level crossing. Anyone know? If there hasn’t been any fatalities in a very long while then I think that this closure of that street is about making more money for CN and the government then working with the community.” – Diana Wong Adams ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ “So it’s been a concern for 20 years? Has there been an accident in 20 years? If you can’t cross a rail road without getting hit by a train, you shouldn’t have a licence.” – Sean Kerr

services,” writes a Transport Canada official on Sept. 20, 2012. The same official seeks “both immediate short and long-term commitments to remedy this situation” and asks CN, the city and the province what they intend to do. CN tells Transport Canada its track warning lights already in place can work in harmony with highway traffic lights. That's the case now at the Kenney St. level crossing. The province repeats its position that it has no plans for traffic lights. “The signalized intersection at Kenney St. and the Sande Overpass provide the travelling public a safe and efficient means of accessing our highway network,” says a provincial official. An October 12, 2012 conference call between the city, CN and

the province fails to come up with an answer for Transport Canada. The city rejects any notion of restricting long vehicle traffic. “Terrace says no interim measures unless CN and B.C. are willing to discuss an overpass,” reads the city file. The city responds more fully on May 6, 2013, asking Transport Canada to “keep the road open until significant progress has been made on addressing the broader concerns of safe reliable access for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians crossing the railway in the city as a whole.” A note adds, “Kenney Street is far more dangerous, Sande Overpass is congested.” Transport Canada follows through on its warning that it will block vehicle access following a June 4, 2013 incident. “At approximately 11:30 p.m. local time on June 4 [2013], a CN train was required to be put into emergency as it approached the Frank St. crossing as there was a log truck that went through the crossing after the lights and barriers initiated on the train’s approach. We were unable to locate that truck. There were no injuries,” reads a statement from CN. The event constituted “moving the threat level to immediate at this location,” read a Transport Canada June 6, 2013 letter to CN ordering the closure. A CN statement on June 11 describes the city as the “local road authority” with responsibility to deal with the situation, suggesting “signs limiting the length of trucks at the crossing and enhanced policing” be put in place. CN crews place orange spraypainted concrete barriers on both sides of the tracks on Frank St. the afternoon of June 11. They're supplemented by free-standing orange traffic warning lights. “Whether or not the current barriers will be modified depends on the length of the mandated closure, and we are not in a position to speak to that,” indicates a followup CN statement on June 13.

From front

Politicians talk Frank Pernarowski met with Keith Ave. area businesses June 13, noting their frustration with the situation. “What is going to happen is more dangerous goods traffic using Kenney St. and the Sande Overpass,” he said. The mayor met with Skeena – Bulkey Valley NDP MP Nathan Cullen and Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin June 15 to come up with a plan. Cullen has already written a letter to Transport Canada and to CN asking that a solution be found. “We're putting a priority on this,” said Pernarowski of a resolution. The mayor did acknowledge the city has the option to open the Frank St. crossing again by not permitting long vehicles to use the route to Hwy16. That would involve signs informing motorists of the restriction and employees

to enforce the restriction. “It won't solve the issue of trucks but it would certainly allow small vehicle and pedestrian traffic,” said Pernarowski. “All this is something for council to discuss.” CN says its warning lights and gates already installed at the crossing could be programmed to work in conjunction with traffic lights at the intersection of Frank St. and Hwy16 to control traffic and keep the tracks free of vehicles. Those traffic lights would be the responsibility of the highways ministry and it has already said it has no money for them nor does it see the need. “The Kenney Street crossing and the Sande Overpass are functional and safe intersections and provide both a primary and secondary access for crossing the rail line,” the provincial transportation ministry said in a prepared statement released June 13.


A century of policing

Terrace Standard  Wednesday, June 19, 2013 A5

A lot has happened since the first police officer set foot in Terrace in 1913 with information from Chantal Meijer, Descent into Madness by Vernon Frolick and other sources

POLICING IN Terrace began in 1913 with the arrival of BC Provincial Police officer Tom Parsons, who served here from March 1, 1913 until August 1914. After joining the BC Provincial Police (BCPP) at Prince Rupert in March 1912, his first post was at Kitselas, where the railroad was held up due to the construction of numerous tunnels. He was transferred to Terrace and took up residence in the newly-built police station. Besides his policing duties, Parsons is noted for acting as best man for a friend and helping to deliver babies. In August 2012, he transferred to Fort St. John. From there he went on to be in charge at Prince George, the Districts of Omineca, Peace River, Fort George, Prince Rupert (1923/24) and Vancouver Island in 1925. He was appointed Commissioner of the BCPP in 1939. He served with them for 35 years until 1947 and died in 1960. He is credited Tom Parsons with reorganizing the BCPP into a division-district detachment plan, out of which grew the present system of policing municipalities under contract; designing the uniform in 1924 and administering the police training school.

Armed robbery On the morning of March 15, 1962, a man carrying a rife and wearing a stocking mask entered the Bank of Montreal on Kalum St., across the street from the RCMP detachment that is still in that location. “Get back against the wall. This is a hold up. This gun is loaded,” shouted the man. He began scooping money into a bag. As this was taking place, two BC Tel employees, who had seen the man enter the bank, ran across the street to the detachment and told Constable Gary Frazer. When Frazer entered the bank, the man turned and fired a number of shots. Hit in the abdomen, arm and left leg, Frazer fell to the ground. But before becoming unconscious, Frazer wrestled the rifle away from the man who then fled with the bag. He was later apprehended on the comer of Greig and Emerson by private citizens who had taken up the chase. The stolen money, $3,800, was recovered. Later that day, Charles Dilley, then 41, was charged with attempted murder. That night, doctors amputated the left leg of Frazer, then 27. In the fall of 1962, Dilley was found

guilty after a trial in the Prince Rupert courthouse. Frazer was promoted to corporal for his actions and was transferred down south. He received a commendation from the RCMP Commissioner of the day. Frazer also received the George Medal, “then the second highest award for civilian bravery in the Commonwealth.”

Murder by madman THE BRASS plaque inserted into the wall of the entryway to the RCMP detachment here blends in with the brick. So much so that you might not notice it at first. You should. It contains the name of Michael Joseph Buday, the 27-year-old RCMP constable shot and killed March 19, 1985 on the shores of Teslin Lake far north of here toward the Yukon border. The killer was Michael Eugene Oros, a 33-year-old American who had left his country and the Vietnam war draft for the vastness of northern British Columbia in the early 1970s. Living alone in the bush, often by stealing provisions from the cabins of others, Oros became a feared commodity. Appearing and disappearing almost at will and well-armed, using age-old trails and accompanied by his dogs, Oros retreated into the solitude of his mind. In mid-March 1985, RCMP received another report of a cabin break-in at Teslin Lake from its owners. They even spotted Oros off in the distance. At dawn on March 17, RCMP officers went up in an airplane to look for Oros. They found him. He shot at the plane. They returned to base and after contact with senior RCMP commanders, the decision was made to call in the northern BC Emergency Response Team (ERT). Made up of regular RCMP officers especially trained for dangerous situations, the ERT included Buday, a dogmaster, and Trooper, his dog. Loaded with weapons and gear, the team assembled in Prince Rupert the night of March 18 for the long flight north to Whitehorse. From there, they would board helicopters to fly south to Teslin Lake. On the morning of March 19, Buday, Trooper and two other officers left on one helicopter. Other officers were on another helicopter. A fixed wing aircraft with other RCMP members was already in the air over the lake, reporting back on Oros’ whereabouts. The fear was that Oros would leave the openness of the ice-covered lake and head for the bush where it would be even more dangerous to bring him into custody. The problem was communications. Although the aircraft and the helicopters were in radio contact with each other and could pass information back and forth, ERT members had only small radios of limited range. Repeaters which would have boosted the range were left behind because of weight restrictions on the aircraft that carried the ERT north to Whitehorse. Once on the ground, the

Michael Buday, who was shot and killed March 19, 1985, shown with his dog Trooper. different teams could not talk to each other. Oros changed directions several times as the RCMP closed in. By this time the fixed wing aircraft left because it was low on fuel. The helicopters also left to pick up more ERT members. It left Buday and the other two officers and a second group of three officers without eyes in the sky and without the means to talk to each other. The plan was still to contain Oros on the ice between the two three-member teams. Buday and his two fellow officers took up position, expecting Oros to head their way. He did, but then headed into the shoreline, creeping up behind Buday and killing him with one shot from a .303 rifle. Oros then tried to shoot officer Garry Rodgers but his rifle misfired. Rodgers returned fire, killing Oros with one round from his M-16. Buday was buried in Tilley, Alberta.

Three police stations The first police station, built in 1912 at the corner of Kalum and Lakelse, still stands in its original location where it housed the BC Provincial Police from 1913 to 1950 and then the RCMP from 1950 to 1964. The RCMP moved into the basement of city hall in 1964 and from there, into their current building near city hall in July 1987. In 1987, there was talk of taking down the original RCMP detachment building to construct a parking lot for the Happy Gang Centre but a few city councillors opposed it as it was the only heritage building still standing in its original location. Two related

buildings in the same area had already been lost: the original town hall, torn down when the Happy Gang Centre was built, and the police constable’s residence, located behind the old B.C. police building and torn down for an unknown reason. Carver Cliff Bolton was Kitsumkalum chief councillor in 1987 and gave the Friendship Totem Pole to the city. The totem was erected in front of the Terrace RCMP detachment during the August long weekend. He said that it was the beginning of a friendship between Kitsumkalum and the city, as he believed they should work together for the progress of the area. Last year, the city, Kitsumkalum, Kitselas and the RCMP celebrated the 25th anniversary of the totem pole raising and to remember Bolton, who had passed away earlier that year.

New things The Crime Reduction Unit, also known as the street crew, started in 2009 with two officers who would walk, bike or drive a van around downtown making their presence known in response to businesses requesting a more noticeable police presence. It then increased to four officers. In 2011, Terrace RCMP inspector Dana Hart began putting out daily releases listing most or all of the calls RCMP officers had received in the past 24 hours to give the public a better idea of what police officers do on a daily basis. To see how to take part in Terrace RCMP celebrations for 100 years of policing, see June 27 under Community Calendar.

LNG base THE measure of importance Premier Christy Clark is placing on developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry is evident in the cabinet posts given Prince George - Valemount MLA Shirley Bond and Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad. Ms. Bond is in charge of skills training, a northern issue if there ever was one if northerners are ever to take advantage of the promised employment LNG will bring to both the northwest and to the northeast. Mr. Rustad is aboriginal affairs minister, again a key part of any LNG plan given that numerous pipelines are to cross traditional aboriginal territory. He’s also the last Liberal MLA along Hwy 16 before bumping into the three northwestern ridings held by the NDP. The most important job in Ms. Clark’s LNG plans goes to Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman with the new portfolio of natural gas development minister. Translation: bring home the bacon. Because there are no Liberal MLAs in the northwest, there’s no place to plant the province’s LNG development flag in either the political or governmental sense. At the moment, LNG information in the northwest is the preserve of the industry and of its critics. Mr. Coleman must move to establish his own LNG beachhead if the public is to fully understand his plans. Terrace, between the planned LNG plants in Kitimat and Prince Rupert, is the logical place.

arly in June, 100 senior students from a New York Yeshiva about to set off on a three-day trip to Atlanta that was to include a rafting excursion, and a visit to a Six Flags theme park, were booted from a plane at LaGuardia airport along with their chaperones when they refused to put away their electronic devices. They were re-routed on other planes, some taking 12 hours longer to reach their destination going as far out of their way as Milwaukee,Wisconsin. By contrast, on a recent Thursday morning, a kindergarten class and I arrived simultaneously at the public library though from different directions. I approached up the ramp from the west; the class of some 25 youngsters streamed along the front of the building from the east, orderly as freight cars on a train track. One teacher, the engineer, led the way and called out the orders. Another teacher served as brakeman, bringing up the caboose. At the order to halt, the kids bunched like freight cars on a spur line when brakes

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI are suddenly applied. In a clear, loud voice typical of teachers spelling out the rules so later no one can whine, “But I didn’t hear you”, the engineer turned to look her charges in the eye and began a lengthy inventory of behaviour do’s and don’ts ruling this public outing. “Use your inside voices,” I heard her say before the sliding door closed behind me as I marched into the library. I greeted the lone librarian on duty, stacked my returns on the counter, and took in the scene – one patron peering at a computer screen.

Several people strolling the stacks. At long last, after months, no Venture employee adding finishing touches to the elevator installed for the convenience of anyone visiting the art gallery in the basement. No crickets chirping. Not even Muzak, perhaps the only place in town spared constant background music. The only noticeable sound was the teacher who could be heard still instructing her students lined up outside under the eaves. Then a centipede of eager little ones tramped in, dutifully following the lead teacher on into the children’s area. They hugged the right wall leaving plenty of space for others to enter at the same time. One who did so was an elderly woman of about my age. She and I exchanged smiles as we watched this orderly entrance. “And we had trouble controlling two,” I said. Without a word, a poke, a push, or further direction, the kids removed their jackets and piled them on a bench before fanning out to sample the goodies. Thursday mornings the


children’s librarian presents story time, which may include a puppet show or other lively activities for the kids’ entertainment. These kids had clear notions of the fun ahead. Chances are good before they left the library they would spend some minutes observing Maxine, the rosyhaired tarantula who has occupied a see-through cage on the front desk for some eight or more years. She feeds on crickets, whose cheery chirping enlivens the atmosphere on most of my visits, as they scamper over bark bedding or peek over logs like Daniel Boones hiding from marauding varmints. Many kids write little notes to Maxine; Maxine replies in precise printing probably identical to that of the children’s librarian. I couldn’t help wondering, what happens after the orderly days of elementary school that turns some kids into delinquents who show up in daily RCMP reports? Teenagers that break and enter; assault parents, guardians, even cops; or must be booted from airplanes because they refuse to obey safety rules?

The Mail Bag Her experience quite different

Healthy life requires balance Dear Sir: It is disturbing how various media take off with only half information before publishing it, and thus contribute to a lot of confusion regarding what people should, or should not do to gain and maintain health. The first was a warning that people were supplementing with too much calcium – this without taking into con-


sideration which form of calcium had been used for the testing. There are several forms of calcium of which only a few are easily digestible. Calcium should always be balanced with magnesium and vitamin A, as these 3 elements work together to enhance each other’s absorption and utilization ability in the body. If calcium is taken

by itself it will result in magnesium deficiency, a deficiency which has been implicated in osteoporosis and heart disease. Calcium taken alone causes it to be laid down in several unwanted places including your kidneys and arteries. Magnesium is the most important mineral for all heart conditions. I have even seen recommendations to use antacid as a calcium

supplement. However these contain aluminum, a toxic mineral which interferes with calcium absorption. The other disturbing news item was regarding too much salt (sodium) in the diet without any recommendations, except reducing its use. But the fact is that there has to be a balance between sodium and potassium. People who get too much salt are

eating too much junk food which is loaded with salt and rarely contain any greens or fruits, which are the main contributors of potassium; therefore the two minerals are out of balance. This can cause a number of problems including angina, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and osteoporosis.

Dear Sir: Re: “Cleanup went well, says Terrace official,” The Terrace Standard, May 15, 2013 I was affected by Enbridge’s 1.1 million gallon tarsands oil spill into the Kalamazoo River in 2010. I do not like to use the word victim…I am a survivor. This disaster caused the disruption of not only people like myself who lived along the 40-mile stretch of the river, but of our communities, our wildlife, our way of life, our health. Given Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway project through northwest BC, I want you to learn from our experience about what an oil spill will do. A spill will hurt your business base. Companies will have to relocate or close. As they leave, your tax base will disappear. Your communities will lose tourism and future business as people and corporations tend to shy away from contaminated areas. There are health issues that we did not have twoand-a-half-years ago, along with an increase in psychological stress and care of post-traumatic stress. A spill emphasizes the disparity in communities. Many of the richer residents who could afford lawyers were paid off or bought out, and the most defenseless were left with no legal resources or compensation. A spill violates worker safety. Safety measures were not taken that should have been. I have watched as Enbridge has pitted neighbours against neighbours, given community organizations what many residents call hush money, harassed and threatened people who dare to stand up and say “no, that is not right,” or who have photographed or videotaped the spill and so called cleanup. I have talked to reporters whose jobs have been threatened or the companies they work for threatened with lawsuits. I do not wish what happened in my community to happen in yours. Michelle Barlond-Smith, Battle Creek, Michigan

Senate could have a vital role to play

he question of whether to abolish or to elect the Senate tends to flare up in the wake of a crass partisan appointment or a flagrant abuse of privilege. That question, however, should not be allowed to negate the question of the Senate’s purpose. We have examples in our history of legislation where, in retrospect, a sober second thought could have — should have — avoided much pain, suffering, and embarrassment for the country and its citizens. Two examples are the Gradual Enfranchisement Act which legitimized the residential school program imposed on First Nations and the War Measures Act which legitimized the forced internment of Canadian citizens of Japanese ancestry. An effective legislative body charged with the responsibility to assess the full potential of consequences with respect to human rights and dignity that may flow from such legislation, could have prevented thousands of Canadi-

ans from being abused by state power, and the nation would have escaped the humiliation and embarrassment that followed. It was Sir John A. Macdonald who referred to the Senate as Canada’s chamber of sober second thought, whose primary task was to curb any excesses of the elected House of Commons. History has validated concerns that the judgment of democratically elected legislators may on occasion become clouded by populist euphoria. To subject draft legislation to a sober second thought, or to reevaluate established legislation when the conditions prevailing at the time of an enactment no longer apply, is not to deny democracy’s principles. It is not only wrong, it is arrogant to assume that today’s sophisticated and informed citizenry would prevent laws of the kind that facilitated residential schools and internment camps from being adopted. Human reasoning, especially in political matters, is as likely to

g u e s t c o mm e n t

ANDRE CARREL make wild assumptions and grotesque errors, and reach irrational conclusions today as it has been throughout history. This is the perspective from which we need to examine the role of the Senate and its historic performance. The primary objective of that examination has nothing to do with the alternatives of abolishing the Senate or of electing its members.

The critical question is how to structure, within democratic principles, a legislative body so as to give it the necessary authority to apply a sober second thought to legislation, both existing and under consideration. The Senate is established in our Constitution. A substantial change to or elimination of the Senate requires a constitutional amendment. It has been more than 30 years since the last time the country went through a substantial amendment of the Constitution with the adoption of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We need a constitutional debate on the role of the Senate, not merely on whether to dump it or to fiddle with the ways and means of appointing, anointing, selecting or electing Senators. We need a national debate on the merits of subjecting legislative initiatives to a sober second thought before enactment. The risk is that such a debate may well expand to become a national debate on the way we

should or could govern ourselves. Such a debate may lead us to consider the separation of legislative from executive powers, and to consider electoral systems that encourage dialogue and compromise rather than empowering one political view at the expense of all others. It is only in such a context that we should consider the future of the Senate. Democratic rights are contingent upon our democratic powers. Today our democratic powers are limited to electing members to the House of Commons. Our electoral system transforms a plurality at the ballot box into a majority in the House of Commons. Under our electoral system a party favoured by little more than one third of the population can gain full control of government and the legislative calendar. This condition is not conducive to democratically open, accountable, and responsive government. Andre Carrel is a retired public sector manager living in Terrace, BC.

Your input and ideas are important.

Food advice can be confusing Just look to nature – why are the cows seeking salt licks after having been on grass pasture for a while. Their instincts tells them they have to balance their high intake of potassium with the salt. Another bad suggestion is that people are constantly told to cut fat out of their diet, without mention of which kind of fat is referred to. It is not fat in form of the right kinds of oils, for example, which makes people fat. It is sugar, which is converted to the worst kind of fat in your system.

To take one example – you cannot absorb the calcium from yogurt or other dairy products if it is fat free and loaded with sugar. Sugar is one of the biggest problems in the diet today, disguised under many different names and artificial sweeteners, which have been proven not to save calories but are addictive and can cause all kinds of health problems.

Fine costs shoplifter more than he took A SHOPLIFTER will have to pay more in fines than the cost of the items he took. Rodney Kerr, 52, pleaded guilty to theft under $5,000 and was handed a 14 day jail sentence and will have to pay a $50 victim fine surcharge by June 11, 2014. On Feb. 27 of this year, Walmart staff caught Kerr stealing items totalling $7.47, court heard before sentencing. He had several past convictions for the same charge where he received a fine or fine and probation, court heard.

There’s also room for expansion thanks to

the Kitsumkalum First Nation’s approval of a land claims agreement in principle with the provincial and federal governments earlier this year. Following approval in a April vote 25, held2013 earlier this year, the provincial government signed over a section of land adjacent to the quarry location which contains marketable material.

The Kalum Quarry owned and operated by Kitsumkalum First Nation is nearing its first year of being in full swing operations. Terry Bennett, economic development officer for the Kitsumkalum First Nation, said the quarry spent the last year gearing up for full operations. Bennett is confident of the long-term economic benefit this project will continue to have for the Kitsumkalum community, since there is a seemingly endless supply of high quality rock. The quarry, located just north of the Kitsumkalum community, produces various rock products including ballast for its long term contract with Canadian National, gravel for local sale, sub ballast for construction and highways, and rip rap placed on river banks and used most commonly for flood prevention and mitigation. The quarry has two rail spurs, installed to meet a long term contract with CN. They frame either side of their work yard with a single rail line connecting to CN’s main line at Hwy16 adjacent to the Kitsumkalum-owned Tempo gas bar. This set-up allows workers to load rail cars

from either side of the work yard. The line was officially opened in January. The long-term contract with CN is set for 20 years, and is renegotiable after. In addition to providing rocks for the inside of the train tracks, the quarry also provides rock for the Long Lake hydro-electric project located near Stewart.

Airport hits monthly high THE NORTHWEST Regional Airport continues to be one of the busiest places in the area with 14,203 passengers passing through its doors in May, an increase of more than 1,000 people compared to April’s figure of 13,150. It was also the first time in the airport’s history that it posted a monthly passenger figure of more than 14,000. To the end of May, the passenger count stands at 60,602 passengers, an increase of nearly 15 per cent over the 52,753 posted to the end of May 2012. “And our busiest month of the year, August, has yet to come,” said airport manager Carman Hendry of the increase in traffic this year. An expansion of the airport’s original washrooms, the ones by the arrival area, will make things more convenient for the growing number of passengers using the facility. Hendry expects work to be finished in little over a month. “Washrooms are the single largest issue in any customer satisfaction survey,” he added. “Cleanliness, size and convenience are what’s important.” The airport is also looking forward to Telus beefing up cell service and is also looking at ways to speed up its WIFI service. The passenger count has been steadily increasing, following the improving economic fortunes of the city and area. As an indication of the growth, Air Canada Jazz begins a fifth flight weekdays starting in July and Hawkair through partner company Central Mountain is now into its third week of Terrace to Calgary service via Prince George. And, on occasion, Air Canada passengers may have the benefit of flying in a 50-passenger Bombardier-made jet instead of a Dash 8. One such jet was pressed into service on the Terrace to Vancouver run several times two weekends ago. The jets “are usually scheduled on other routes, but every day, aircraft can be substituted for any number of reasons from mechanical delays to weather delays where the aircraft is coming in from another location, etc.” said Air Canada’s Angela Mah. Another recent growth factor is carrier Hawkair landing a charter contract with Bechtel, the main company working on the Rio Tinto Alcan aluminum smelter rebuild project in Kitimat. A Hawkair Dash 8 is making trips each Saturday and Sunday ferrying workers to and from Vancouver. Hawkair general manager Rod Hayward said the charter provides Bechtel with the comfort that it can get its workers back and forth when needed. “This schedule was designed to meet their needs. We’ve sold the whole plane to them,” he said. These flight numbers will be recorded separately. Airport officials cite BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line, the construction of the Red Chris copper and gold mine, continuing work on the rebuilding of Rio Tinto Alcan’s Kitimat aluminum smelter and the prospect of natural gas pipelines and accompanying liquefied natural gas plants as reasons for the increase. The Forrest Kerr run-ofriver project on the Iskut river is another attraction.

Dance group is down south

By Amara Janssens LOCAL dancers are down south this week helping to celebrate National Aboriginal Day. Helping pay for the journey for the Gitlaxdax Nisga’a Dancers was a June 1 event held at the Kitsumkalum Hall so they could appear at two cultural events in Vancouver and Victoria. Gitlaxdax Nisga’a Dancers’ organizer, Brigitte Watts, said approximately 200 people attended the event and described its success. “We made just over $2,500,” she said. Funds raised went towards travel expenses for the group of 68 dancers to perform at Aboriginal Day at the Vancouver Friendship Centre on June 21, and at the First People’s Festival in Victoria’s Inner Harbour on June 22 and 23. The group voted to attend these events last year, and have been fundraising since that time. The dancers needed to raise $23,000 to send the group to the Low-

er Mainland. “It’s going to be a great trip,” Watts said. Watts added that only a few of the group’s dancers have travelled to Victoria before and so they are looking forward to the new experience. The group continued to fundraise right up to the departure date, including at the farmers market where they sold Nisga’a tacos and dogs. Watts would like to thank all the businesses who have helped to support their group, saying that the large and small donations have all added up to quite a bit. The Gitlaxdax Nisga’a Dancers are comprised of people of all nations and ages. Nine of the 68 members are elders, and another nine are under the age of five. The group practices every Sunday from 3-5 p.m. and every Monday from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at either the Terrace Health Unit auditorium or in George Little Park (weather permitting and are always welcoming any new members).

New curator starts

at Nass museum

DARRIN Martens arrived in the Nass Valley June 30 to start his new position as curator of the Nisga’a museum in Greenville. He has an MA in Art History from UBC and experience as curator at the Burnaby Art Gallery and West Vancouver Museum. What are your first impressions? The collection itself is outstanding and I’m looking forward to learning more about it and ways in which to provide deeper engagement with these works not only for myself but for visitors and members of the Nisga’a nation. Are you planning any events/activities for this summer? One thing I can tell you is that we will be having an ongoing education program throughout the summer related to one of the works in the collection – a button blanket. Fran Johnson will be creating a replica of this important blanket (that dates back to the early 20th Century) to be used in our developing education collection. The

Darrin Martens original blanket is currently at the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) and will be returning to Nisga’a territory, we hope, later this year. Any plans to expand or change the exhibit yet? The spaces on the sides of the long-house definitely need to be developed. The ancestors collection will remain the same at the moment. What we would like to do is enhance the experience with some new text and develop a walking guide through the exhibition. What are one or two of your favourite

pieces? That is a very difficult question to answer. For me the objects that have a dynamic quality to them interest me at the moment – the masks with mouths and eyes that open/close, the squirrel headdress, the eagle figure and the puppet. Because they could be animated provides me with an interest in how they were utilized and what that would have looked like in ceremonies. There are many artifacts on display that were repatriated from museums in both Ottawa and Victoria. Are there more artifacts currently being tracked down that will enhance the current collection? Currently we are helping to tell a very small portion of the Nisga’a story. Over the next weeks and months I will be looking at what Nisga’a objects are in other collections and determining (with the guidance and assistance of the elders) if there are things that we should have back in the community.

Fence height by-law needs a fix



But a zoning bylaw here in Terrace specifies that front fences are to be no taller than 1 metre and rear fences must stay below 1.8 metres. A contractor who prides himself in sticking precisely to code, Mainwaring has to constantly shorten support-

ing sections and wire by mere inches, something which he said is a hassle. He recommended to council that they amend zoning bylaw No.14311995 to raise the heights and save fence builders’ labour costs. Council commend-










ed Mainwaring on his well-voiced presentation and voted to move his recommendation into the formal amendment process after councillor Lynne Christiansen made a motion to amend that was seconded by councillor Stacey Tyers.

many of the city zoning bylaws are being revised in the coming year, a series of changes effective next spring, and he said he would consider the fence issue during the larger overhaul. However several council members want-

BC waters would complicate spill TERRACE city council grilled Deputy Fire Chief Dave Jephson at a June 5 meeting on his May trip to view the clean-up efforts following an Enbridge oil pipeline spill on the Kalamazoo River in Michigan. He was asked how a clean-up on a slowmoving river in the U.S. might shed light on a potential spill in the mountains and waterways of B.C. Jephson told council that Enbridge officials preferred to focus on the Kalamazoo River disaster and not speculate on other clean-up scenarios, though he said that in his own estimation it would be entirely different here. “High flood to them means two feet,” Jephson said about the flooding that made the Michigan spill in 2010 so challenging. “High flood to us means 40 feet.” “Clean up here would not go like this,” Jephson added of the Michigan reclamation efforts that he said were mostly successful. While Jephson showed council evidence of good regrowth and wildlife rebound, councillor James Cordeiro said that with Enbridge responsible for hundreds of spills in recent years, he doesn’t see one successful cleanup as an important

victory. “My issue is not so much with the cleanup but that they have been having to do so many of them,” Cordeiro said. “The best way to mitigate risk is to not take it

on in the first place.” Councillor Brian Downie asked Jephson if Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline would be fashioned differently than the one that ruptured in Michi-

gan. Jephson replied that Enbridge told him new pipes are constructed with multiple plastic coatings which are more durable than the tar and cloth in the Michigan line installed

40 years ago. Jephson showed photos of trees that still had oil stains on their trunks, and councillor Marylin Davies said this seemed particularly relevant to the

northwest and wanted to know more about how a diluted bitumen spill would affect the subsurface. Jephson said that the majority of the oil was washed downstream and col-

lected from the water in booms, however when it combined with organics much of it took hold on the river bottom and banks, at which point Enbridge knew they had a huge challenge ahead.

One dead in crash

POLICE ARE investigating a single vehicle accident north of Terrace at approximately 2 a.m. on June 15 which has claimed one life. The accident took place on Hwy113 at the north end of Lava Lake, approximately 80km north of Terrace. Two males and a female were traveling north on Highway 113 when their vehicle, a Pontiac Sunbird, left the road and rolled over. The 28-year-old male driver was pronounced deceased at the scene, reports the RCMP. Both passengers were transported to Mills Memorial Hospital in Terrace and the female flown to Vancouver by air ambulance due to her injuries. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this case, say the RCMP.

By JOSH MASSEY GORDON GILLAM was one of 126 local residents to attend an open house hosted by the Kitimat-Stikine regional district June 11 which laid out the future of garbage disposal and recycling for the area. And like a number of those who attended, Gillam, a Lakelse Lake homeowner, was curious as to how much that future will cost him. Gillam said he already pays a lot for garbage disposal and wonders by how much that bill will rise. “They should have rethought this back in ‘98,” Gillam said of the current plan to open a new landfill at Forceman Ridge. Based on open house information, Gillam’s expenses will rise based on the ambitious plan to build this super-dump south of Lakelse Lake, convert the regional district’s Thornhill dump to a transfer station to organize recyclable material and material ultimately destined for the new dump, close down the City of Terrace’s own dump up Lakelse Lake Road and put in place a robust residential and business recycling program. Regional district works and services manager Roger Tooms said the ultimate tax bill depends upon what model is chosen. A parcel tax, in which each property owner pays the same, could mean some homeowners will pay less than they are now compared to a system based on the values of individual properties, he said. The broad picture involves cost sharing between the City of Terrace, the regional district and First Nations governments. Planners are forecasting the cost of building the Forceman Ridge project at upwards of $6 million with the Thornhill transfer station cost pegged at approximately $500,000. That cost will be buffered by $4.8 million from the federal government but some of that money will also help pay for a landfill project in New Hazelton. Over 15 years Forceman Ridge will cost Terrace $550,000 per year; the rural areas surrounding Terrace $361,060 per year; and $52,000 for First Nations. A key part of the new waste plan is boosting recycling, currently handled by a private contractor in Thornhill by pick up or drop off, by the Encorp Pacific outlet in Terrace, and by various businesses who provide drop off facilities for items such as light bulbs and batteries. Exact costs for a curbside pickup recycling service will need to be worked out. And starting next year producers of goods will become more responsible for the recycling of packaging, meaning costs connected with that will have to be determined as well. It also means more material going into the recycling stream and less material ending up in the dump. City public works director Rob Schibli said the current cost for garbage pick up for a single family dwelling within the city is two dollars a week, a figure that will probably double in upcoming years. Businesses are responsible for their own garbage pickup. A study done by Golder Associates found that curbside pick-up would cost $20 a month for Thornhill and area residents. The regional district’s Tooms stressed the need for a buy-in from all local governments. “Whatever happens to the City of Terrace we want to be happening in the regional district,” said Roger Tooms, speaking to the need to harmonize waste management. In the meantime, the city learned late last week that a provincial recycling association will give it between $32 and $40 per house per year to go toward a recycling program. If the city decides to go with curb side recycling it will have to work it into its regular garbage pickup and other waste management programs.

Smithers wins award









Mayor David Pernarowski is focusing on the positive outcomes of a recent loss to Smithers. “I wasn’t really looking at the negative aspects. I think what we accomplished is to promote active transportation,” Pernarowski said of the late May Bike to Work Week competition between the two municipalities to see who could sign up the most teams. “This was always intended to be a friendly competition.” Pernarowski was at Smithers city council meeting June 11 to hand over the Golden Saddle to their mayor Taylor Bachrach. Terrace has about twice the population of their cousin town, so the defeat (Smithers’ 65 teams to Terrace’s 42 and 322 to 190 participants) was not trifling. Pernarowski said before he left for the drive to Smithers that he was prepared to take any

Group restores old pioneer cemetery By MARGARET SPEIRS


patrick hall, a former air cadet, former member of the Canadian Armed Forces and current member of the Terrace Pipes and Drums was the reviewing officer for the annual 747 Terrace Air Cadets review held June 9.

Cadets celebrate 50th MEMBERS OF the 747 Terrace Air Cadets (Unicorn) Squadron combined a celebration marking its 50 years of existence with an annual review June 9 outside the cadet hall at Northwest Regional Airport. Family and friends watched the cadets as they were inspected, applauded as awards were presented, listened to speeches and enjoyed a barbecue afterward. Displays inside the hall highlighted cadet activities and provided information dating back to the squadron’s foundation in 1963. Patrick Hall, a member of the Terrace Pipes and Drums and former air cadet squadron member and member of the Canadian Armed Forces, was the reviewing officer. In a short speech, Hall noted that the squadron in its early years suffered a setback when its meeting space, the community centre, burned down. “I doubted we would

ever be able to recover, but recover we did,” he said. Hall, a member of the squadron from 1964 to 1967, noted that cadets teaches young people key traits such as respect, loyalty and friendship. While Hall doubted he would be here in 50 years time, he had every confidence the squadron would be celebrating its 100th anniversary. Guests included New Westminster resident Richard Taylor representing the Air Cadet League of Canada, the civilian sponsoring organization of air cadets. Fourteen awards related to cadet performance were handed out by different presenters. Several of the presenters are former cadets themselves – Ravi Gill now with the American Department of Homeland Security, Murray Hamer who is now the squadron’s assistant training officer and Bill Spearn, now a sergeant with the Van-

couver police force. Sgt. Sam Christiansen was awarded the prestigious Lord Strathcona Medal as well as given the trophy for best attendance. The Lord Strathcona Medal is the highest award that can be given to a cadet. Sgt. Johnathan Haynes was awarded the best uniform trophy and shared the survival trophy. Best first year cadet was Cpl. Chance Soden while Cpl. Jason Pires was judged to have the most improved shot. Best first year shot went to Leading Air Cadet Aleah McEvoy while Warrant Officer Second Class Christopher Bishop was named marksman of the year and shared the esprit de corps trophy with Warrant Officer Second Class Dakota Taron. The cadet of the year was Flight Cpl. Lesley Hansen while the non commissioned officer of the year trophy was shared by Flight Sgt. Nicholas Ross and Sgt.


Area Cadet Instructor Cadre Officer Major Chris Bishop pins the Lord Strathcona Medal on Sgt. Samuel Christiansen. Ashlee Thompson. Ross shared the citizenship trophy with Warrant Officer Second Class Dakota Taron and he shared the sponsoring society trophy with Warrant Officer Second Class Bishop, Flight Sgt. Nicholas Ross, Leading Air Cadet Nadeen Sandberg and Air Cadet Jared Christiansen.

Warrant Officer First Class Lesley Green was the other cadet sharing the survival trophy and he was also presented with the commanding officer’s award trophy by squadron commanding officer Capt. Florence Braam. One cadet received a significant honour. That story on Page A19.

A UNIQUE community event is coming up soon as adult workers restore the Old Pioneer Cemetery. The seven workers have been busy working on the cemetery for a month now and will hold a special day for the public to see their work and remember the history of those buried there, said Crystal Zaharchuk, program coordinator at Terrace and District Community Social Services Employment Services. The program helps adults transition into employment or training, paid for by the Targetted Initiative for Older Workers job skills training, with money from the federal and provincial governments. Local historian Yvonne Moen gave them the idea after talking to Zaharchuk about it and showing the group around the cemetery while telling them about the history of it. “It was pretty run down so we kind of got a good feeling with it and decided ‘yeah we’ll restore it and bring it back to life,” said Zaharchuk, adding the group received some donations from businesses like Canadian Tire and Rona who provided work supplies. “They’re creating a perimeter around all the stones and then are clearing the trail behind it.” Restoration includes cleaning out the sites so the details of the cemetery stones can be seen again, said Zaharchuk. “One of my guys is taking every stone out, taking the moss out and putting all the stones back in, clearing the moss away so people could read them and creating a perimeter around it all,” she said, adding grass was growing and closing in around the stones. Some of the restoration includes getting rid of graffiti. City workers still cut the grass at the cemetery as they always have done, said Zaharchuk, adding the program wouldn’t do it because it doesn’t take jobs away from others. The group has been working on the cemetery for so long now because it’s such detailed work, she said. The “cemetery day” will take place tentatively from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. June 26 for the public to come hear about the history of the individuals buried there, have lemonade and just enjoy the beauty of the location. “We’re trying to create a bit of an afternoon to see what they’ve done and enjoy the work put into the project as well as learn about history and visit long gone, and not forgotten, people.” That includes veterans from the First World War and Second World War, founder of Terrace George Little and the immigrants who worked on the railway, she said.

Cadet receives honour

A MEMBER of the Terrace 747 Air Cadet Squadron has been given a federal commendation for his role in saving two men from serious fire injuries. Cpl. Patrick Hamer was presented with the commendation from the national cadets organization, and accompanying pin, at the squadron’s June 9 annual review. Signed by Col. G.M. Pratt, the federal director of cadets and junior rangers, the commendation, in part, says Hamer “played a crucial role in avoiding a possible tragedy and saving two people from being severely burned by extinguishing the flames that were beginning to cover them.” “Cadet Hamer’s quick reaction and performance under stress are most worthy of this citation. He is highly praised for the actions taken and for bringing credit to the Canadian Cadet Organizations.” Hamer, brother Nickolas, and cousins Dayne Wright and Parker Wright were doing chores on the family farm in Thornhill when they heard a commotion in January 2012. Hamer’s father, Murray, found himself on fire when he tried to help farm worker Jess Hansen who had accidentally set himself on fire while filling a quad and then a truck with fuel from a jerry can. Patrick reacted to cries for help by grabbing a fire extinguisher while his brother and the others used blankets and gave instructions to “stop, drop and roll.” They also opened up a hydrant tap to help douse the flames. Murray Hamer suffered second degree burns while Jess only suffered singed nose hairs and a few singed hairs on his head. Fire officials later said static can build up on a metal can and subsequently cause a spark. The four young people and Hamer have also received commendations signed by Governor-General David Johnston. Those commendations recognizes those who have made a significant contribution by providing assistance to another in a selfless manner.

The City of Terrace Housing Committee is partnering with the Terrace & District Christian Council (TDCC) in seeking volunteers to serve on a Project Steering Committee to develop and lead the Tuck Avenue Seniors Housing Project. In 2012 the City’s Housing Committee identified the potential for the construction of 4-5 additional subsidized seniors housing units on the existing Tuck Avenue Seniors property. The TDCC has been very supportive in pursuing this project on their property as the demand for the existing 18 affordable housing units for senior’s has increased. Those interested in this opportunity to volunteer and assist in developing and undertaking this exciting community based housing project are invited to attend an open house information session to be held on Wednesday July 3, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall (3215 Eby Street). If you are interested in working to help make Terrace an even better place to live through serving on the Project Steering Committee, please contact the City of Terrace for further details.

Tricked out in Terrace, B.C. By AMARA JANSSENS MEMBERS OF the local skateboard team live and breathe skateboarding. By day they work at the Ruins Boardshop on Lakelse; by night they ride the streets and parks of Terrace. Adam Derow, Ruins Boardshop store manager and Ruins Skate Team manager says the team is a group of good friends who use this as an opportunity to hang out and have fun. It’s not too competitive or serious, and it’s a chance to be creative – not just with tricks, but with film. The team documents the majority of their sessions, and has an impressive portfolio to show for it. Chase Hamilton, manages Ruins alongside Derow, is the team’s photographer and videographer. He said he tries to produce at least one 30-minute video of the team each year. “They skate to get clips to make videos,” said co-worker Taylor Wilson. The guys see each other almost every day, but how often they skate depends on the weather, saying when the weather is poor they ride inside or snowboard instead. The team takes day trips to skate parks in Hazelton, Kitimat, and Prince Rupert. Aside from Hamilton and Derow, official team members include Nolan Bilash, Kyle Inkster, Cameron Hemming, Joel Wood, and Cody Schooling – but the team invites anyone to skateboard with them.


HERE’S KYLE Inkster with a front-side rock and roll in Hazelton. For more of Hamilton’s smart photographs of local skateboarders and skate spots, visit

“We’re trying to encourage new people to come out,” said Hamilton. The team says that they are for the most part well received in Terrace, and have had parents comment on how the team makes an

effort to make their children feel welcomed at the skate park. On the skate-ability of Terrace, the team has mixed reviews. Although there aren’t a lot of designated skate areas, they say there has been a tremendous effort in

recent years to create more spaces to skate. And, unlike some cities, there aren’t bylaws preventing skateboarding in town. “I’d say Terrace is skate friendly,” said Hamilton – before cautioning that the skate scene in Ter-

race can become a bit “stagnant.” The group has had run-ins with people less supportive of the sport, citing an incident where people were trying to get them to leave Spirit Square. But naysayers aside, the skateboarders are committed and don’t plan on giving it up any time soon, saying they will be skateboarding even into their old age. “I’m going to skateboard as long as possible,” Derow said. The best part of skateboarding is that there is no admission fee and you can “skate everything,” he said. But even without admission fees, skateboarding can be a costly venture. With the amount of skateboarding the team does, they each burn through multiple skateboard decks, shoes, wheels and bearings per month. According to Derow, it costs much more to skateboard than it does to snowboard. “You go through material,” he said. Luckily, all team members are sponsored by Ruins, and some members have additional sponsorships – meaning they’re given products and gear from companies like Converse. This Friday, June 21 is international Go Skateboarding Day. The Ruins crew will be hanging out at skate spots around town hosting events and handing out prizes like stickers, t-shirts, new wheels, and shoes. They’ll also be a group ride down the main drag here in town at some point during the day.

Seven years of Tour de Jackpine


HERE’S RON Lowe, followed by Dan Fisher and Ryan Gordon at the 7th annual Tour de Jackpine bike race.

FOURTEEN RIDERS turned out for the 7th annual Tour de Jackpine two weekends ago, with riders from Terrace to Telkwa climping the loop. The near 31 kilometre route, boasting two long climbs and a roller section (short downs and ups in the road) near the Jackpine flats subdivision, starts at the Thornhill Pub, veers south on Old Lakelse Lake Road towards Hwy. 37, then north on the highway to Krumm Road before heading back to the pub. The race consists of three loops, with rec categories for cyclists wanting to do the loop only once or twice. “Lots of volunteers helped make the race a successful and safe experience,” said organizer Michael Bruce, who noted a strong showing from Smithers this year. Indeed, Neil Hodgson of Smithers (2:45:20) took the top spot. James

Woodworth (2:46:46) of Telkwa in second; third Bruno Hidber (2:46:50) of Terrace; fourth Dan Broad (2:48:33) of Terrace; fifth, Colin Parr (2:59:30) of Terrace; sixth Dan Fisher (3:19:29) of Terrace. In the rec two lap category, Ron Lowe (1:59:55) of Telkwa crossed the line first, with Tammy Wilson (2:06:43) of Terrace in second; Ryan Gordon (2:07:14) of Terrace in third; Phil Kubik (2:12:32) of Terrace in fifth and Maya Siri Wardana (2:28:33) of Kitimat in sixth. And for the one lap rec category, Ed Cooper (1:07:55) of Terrace was first; Ernest Hidber (1:07:56) of Terrace second, and Annie Marie DuFour (1:17:13) of Kitimat in third. The next cycling event, also put on by the Terrace Off Road Cycling Association (TORCA), is the Skeena River Challenge in August.

Northmen tough it out against Rustlers The first official game of the season was a wet one for the Terrace Northmen rugby club, who ground out a lowscoring 5-5 draw against the Williams Lake Rustlers in Prince Rupert over Seafest weekend, June 8. The league game was initially scheduled for the night before, June 7, here in Terrace, but that was changed earlier in the week, meaning they faced off against the Williams Lake crew shortly after a morning exhibition match against the Prince Rupert Seamen, which ended in a 5-0 win for the Northmen. “Both were extremely low scoring,” said Northmen Evan van Dyk, noting they were some of the lowest scoring games in recent years. “The day was played through usual Rupert weather of pouring rain which was definitely a factor,” he said. “Even with that, all the teams were playing very defensive and not making many mistakes.” Outstanding Northmen recognized by Prince Rupert and Williams Lake, included Jarryd Kurisu, Jordy DaCosta, and Adam Linteris. “We also had a rookie game with players that were all new to the game.

Heinricks does it again at provincials By AMARA JANSSENS

Here’s Northmen Jonathan “No Neck” Doane, breaking away from the Williams Lake Rustlers during the first league game of the season June 8. Prince Rupert also played Williams Lake, with the Rustlers taking the game 26-14. This puts the Northmen 0-0-1 for the season, with a home game against the Prince George Gnats scheduled for June 22. “If this weekends lowscoring games are any indicator of how the rest of the season will be, its going to be a tough grind and a very exciting challenge to qualify for provincials,” said van

rout rise to flies in many ways. They slash. They splash. They regally rise from head to tail. And, sometimes they sip a bug from the surface film leaving a bubble floating downstream after the act. When they do that they are telling you that they have just sucked in a dipteran, which is fancy word for a midge, a bi-winged midget and cousin to the mosquito. To trick those fish, you must go to your box for a pattern so small it will fit between these brackets [ ] . I like a Griffith’s Gnat for this job, a tiny fly with an emerald green body made from a strand of peacock herl with stiff barred rock hackle wound through. It would take a fly built on an iron less than half the length of the bracket above to imitate a solitary midge. No manufacturer builds irons that small. Griffith’s invention suggests a mating swarm of midges with their wings abuzz in the act of rapid reproduction––that’s the theory, at least––and I’ve convinced many midge centered trout to take it. Once you’ve taken your gnat from the box, you must now put it on your tippet. This involves threading a strand of nylon the diameter of a chest hair through the eye of your minuscule hook. A feat at the best of times and one on par with getting a camel to pass through the eye of a needle when you have to do it in the fading light of evening. For those crepuscular situations

Dyk. The Northmen are part of the Northern Rugby League along with the Prince George Gnats, the Williams Lake Rustlers, and a mixed Prince Rupert/Smithers team. League play consists of all of the teams playing one home and one away game against each other and the best record will represent the North at the Saratoga Cup, Division 3 Provincials, in Penticton in September.

Allan Heinricks, a familiar face in the community of Terrace, has recently returned from the provincial arm wrestling competition held on May 19 in Kelowna. Despite an ongoing and painful foot infection, Heinricks took home an impressive silver medal from the provincial competition. He competed in the masters division for men's right arm in the weight category of 177-198 pounds. Heinricks said the key to his ongoing success is “lots of training,” as well as being a good sport. “You can't be a winner if you don't know how to lose,” Heinricks said. Although he rarely places lower than second place, he says his competition is always tough. Back home in Terrace, Heinricks is out fundraising at Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, Safeway and Save-On-Foods for his next trip to Timmins, Ontario to compete in the Canadian National Arm Wrestling Championships from June

Tiny flies

28th to July 1st. The trip to nationals will cost Heinricks approximately $6,000, and with a lack of funding for arm wrestling athletes, Heinricks says he would not be able to compete without the financial support of the community. “Without local people, I wouldn't be able to go,” Heinricks said. This is Heinricks 15th year competing in arm wrestling, and he has been competing internationally since then. Heinricks decided to become an arm wrestler after an incident that left him wheelchair bound and paralyzed on one side. “I always did sports,” Heinricks explained. Now Heinricks trains and works outs almost every day. He does arm curls at home, curling around 145 pounds with just his right hand, slightly down from five years ago when Heinricks says he was able to curl 200 pounds with just three fingers. If nationals go well in Ontario, Heinricks will be off to Poland in September to compete in the world arm wrestling championships.

float. Throughout this process follow the fly, or the spot where you assume your fly is, with the tip of your rod. Before you make your first cast you can add a metre or more of tippet material. This extra bit of light line will fall in a loose serpentine posture at the end of the cast and will cause the fly to drift without drag for another metre or so after the fly line has begun to bow downstream. If you execute this strategy acceptably, you will have some fish sip your gnat after it has only floated a little way, but the majority of trout rise at the point when the fly is about to drag. When conditions are favourable you will often see the fish rise and inspect your offering for many feet before committing itself. Let’s assume you’ve passed Midging 101 and have hooked a nice sized trout. Then you should gently coax it to your net —you must have a net or you will snap off flies and brutalize trout (and that net should have soft mesh)—whereupon you will gently grasp the mesh enshrouding the fish, turn it upside down to disorient it and calm it down, then use the hemostat clipped to your vest to gently remove the midge. Sound difficult? It is, but challenging and all the more satisfying for that. Like anything worth doing, it requires years of practice, but you get to practice it in such beautiful classrooms.

here are some of the middle school students dropping off the garden boxes at Ksan House Society.

Students build garden boxes for community use

Students in Skeena Middle School teacher Matt Sydor’s shop class spent the better part of the spring building garden boxes, and earlier this month the class donated some of those boxes to the Ksan House Society Community Garden. The class brought the boxes to Ksan two Thursday’s ago. “I wanted them to have ownership of the project,” said Sydor, a first-year teacher who has built garden boxes like these before with a colleague in Kelowna. The raised boxes will be used to grow carrots and beets, which will then be used to feed people in local shelters and schools. Six boxes out of the 12 built were donated to Ksan, with the remaining six to be donated to other local groups, sold at upcoming Farmers Markets or remain stationed at the school.

“Some will stay at Skeena to start our own community garden,” he said. “We’ll keep a couple here for certain programs to grow their own veggies and stuff. We have lunch programs, breakfast programs, we have a certain area of the school where students can work and eat to catch up on stuff.” The Grade 9 classes have been learning about sustainability – it’s a “hot topic all over the school,” he said. And through this project they’ve also pocketed practical, basic building skills to carry forward into adulthood.

“The focus is sustainability,” said Sydor. “I’ve talked to them a bit about what the idea means, what the term means in general and what it can mean here in northern B.C. ... We talk about the farmers market and buying local, other ways of doing that in the area.” Locally sourced and milled cedar was used as the material for the boxes, which are six feet long and two feet tall with open bottoms so they drain straight into the earth. The project was funded through a $2000 grant from the BC Teacher’s Federation,

which when giving the bursary wants to see that the project benefits the community.

Carol Harrison from the Mission and Outreach Committee of Knox United Church, MP Nathan Cullen constituency assistant Francoise Godet and Robert Hart from the Northwest Branch of the BC Association of Social Workers post letters to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.



Locals write Harper “[Harper] didn’t do much besides that.” The campaign focuses on the lack of money spent on health care, social services and education for aboriginal children, compared to other Canadian children. Members from the northwest branch of the BC Association of Social Workers, the Knox United Church, and the community came out in support of the campaign. Four people partici-

MP Nathan Cullen’s constituency assistant Francois Godet was present on behalf of MP Nathan Cullen to receive copies. “The whole idea is to send the message to the government,” Godet said.
