RTI back on hotseat over coal dust Port Edward council taking clean-up demands to province, feds

Port Edward is sick and tired of cleaning coal dust off their properties and are now raising concerns to federal and provincial agencies. Port Edward council passed a motion last week to contact the environment ministry at both the federal and provincial levels over the ongoing issue of coal dust reaching - Knut Bjorndal Port Edward from the Ridley Terminals Inc. (RTI) coal-loading facility. “Our motto is: clean, neat and green. Until RTI arrived here we were free from coal dust,” Coun. Knut Bjorndal said at the July 9 council meeting. Port Edward officials have received numerous complaints about coal dust covering boats, homes, and patio furniture. One Port Edward homeowner reported leaving a bedroom window open for several hours earlier in July, and returned later to discover the room covered in a thick layer of coal dust.

A cougar was caught on security footage taken near Summit Avenue following more than a dozen reports of cougar sightings in Prince Rupert. Gareth Scrivner, a North Coast zone conservation officer, confirmed the Terrace Conservation Office has received 13 reports of cougar sightings since April, with the most recent taking place at the end of June. “We had three in the month of April, four in May and six in June,” he said. Scrivner said many of the reported sightings happened around 8th Avenue West, near the ferry terminal on Park Avenue and

“We’d certainly tell people to keep their pets, specifically small dogs and cats ... inside.” - Gareth Scrivner on the highway between Prince Rupert and Terrace. “[The sightings] have been in the middle of the night in wooded areas. Some were around town but it’s normal they would pass through at some point,” he said.

While there have been many calls from individuals who caught a glimpse of the wild animals, Scrivner said none of the reports surrounded cougars acting with aggressive behaviour toward humans or their pets. “Wolves and bears are quite generalized in terms of what they’re willing to eat, whereas cougars are generally very specific and are tied into deer numbers,” Scrivner said. “We’d certainly tell people to keep their pets, specifically small dogs and cats, inside if they’re concerned.” Scrivner said if people spot a cougar they should use caution and give the animal lots of space.

Caution RTI looking to new technologies to curb dust urged after Council upset with lack of action cougar sighting COAL from Page A1

“...don’t close in on the animal.” - Gareth Scrivner COUGAR from Page A1 “If they’re at a safe distance they can watch it... It’s an incredible experience to see some of the wildlife we have in the area. But use caution and common sense, certainly don’t close in on the animal,” he said. The Terrace Conservation Office is requesting anyone who spots a cougar to notify the B.C. Conservation Officer Service reporting line at 1-877-952-7277. “[The Conservation Office] would be interested in hearing of people’s sightings so we can monitor exactly where they are, what time of day it is, escape routes and those kinds of things,” Scrivner said.

Coun. Dan Franzen told council the exterior of his house was covered in coal dust a week and a half ago, as well as his boat. “It was just black with coal dust... It’s supposed to be white,” he said. Bjorndal was the most vocal, particularly with the fact that the district has contacted RTI in the past with little change. “Council has written letters every year I’ve been on council ... and really nothing has happened. The situation has actually worsened in the last five years,” he said. Bjorndal said the district needs to be more forceful with their concerns to RTI and to get other government agencies involved. “RTI must contain coal dust and coal on their site and be mandated to rectify the situation as soon as possible,” he said. Coun. Christine MacKenzie said in the last five years the problem hasn’t been constant, but a seasonal issue. “This weekend was horrible... It’s not always like that. It comes and goes. This is the worst I’ve seen it,” MacKenzie said. Michelle Bryant, corporate affairs manager for RTI, said when the area experiences weather patterns similar to the first week of July it’s difficult to prevent any coal dust from blowing around. Bryant attended the meeting to hear concerns, and told the Northern

Michelle Bryant, corporate affairs manager for RTI, said the company has a contractor on call to clean Port Edward homes when weather conditions merge to blow coal dust on the town.

View the facility has maintained a positive relationship with the district. Bryant said RTI has always responded immediately to concerns raised by residents in Port Edward. The terminal has a contractor on call to respond to dust issues. “He will go out to homes in Port Edward no questions asked to clean their homes,” she said. Bryant said it’s important to note RTI is a 40-year-old facility that’s currently looking at new technologies to mitigate coal dust. The facility used a water cannon system last year which they determined wasn’t effective because of wind in the area.

“We are looking at what other terminals are doing and try to look at solutions here,” she said, adding there are currently two water trucks on site and spray towers to keep coal dust down. Mayor Dave MacDonald said rail cars carrying coal may be part of the reason coal dust is sometimes heavy in Port Edward. Franzen said while he was travelling to Terrace on July 6 a train carrying coal was travelling toward Prince Rupert. “The way the light was hitting it you could see the coal dust billowing off each car that went by. It was absolutely horrible,” Franzen said.

Two face charges in cocaine, ecstacy drug bust BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Two Prince Rupert men are facing charges after RCMP raided an India Ave. home in June. Although the raid took place nearly a month ago, Prince Rupert RCMP are still reluctant to release many details. Police did say that after the Prince Rupert RCMP Drug Section executed a search warrant on the evening of June 20, an undisclosed amount of cocaine, ecstasy and cash was seized. “As a result of this seizure, illicit drugs were kept from being distributed within the community of Prince Rupert,” Const. Matt Ericson, “When these drugs are produced in facilities with no quality control or sanitation control there is no way to know what you are ingesting. There is no safe dosage when taking these types of drugs. Even a single use can lead to serious illness or death.” Const. Ericson said RCMP are not releasing what triggered the search warrant, or the exact amount of drugs taken into police custody due to what he called the sensitivity of the investigation. The Prince Rupert RCMP have executed eight search warrants for drugs so far in 2013.

Nishga Girl staying put in Gatineau BY MARTINA PERRY GATINEAU, QC / The Northern View

The Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, QC has decided the Nishga Girl has a place in Canadian history after all. Following public outcry over the museum’s plans to remove the Nishga Girl from Canada Hall, representatives from the Canadian Museum of Civilization have reversed their decision. Mark O’Neill, president and CEO of the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and Chantal Schryer, the museum’s vice-president of public affairs, met with boat donator and Nisga’a Chief Harry Nyce, his wife Deanna and Ken Noma, president of the National Association of Japanese Canadians, in Winnipeg on July 8. “We concluded together after consulting and talking it out that the Nishga Girl can have a home and present a very important history in the future Canadian Museum of History,” O’Neill said. “This particular boat has taken on a far greater meaning, and far greater symbolism than perhaps people here at the museum thought.” The Nyces donated the 8.3-metre wooden gillnetter to the Canadian Museum of Civilization in 1998 to represent the West Coast fishing industry. Nyce fished on the waters of

the West Coast with the Nishga girl from 1968 to 1990. When Nyce was informed the museum was removing his old boat he was disappointed. “I couldn’t find any words,” he said. “I knew in the back of my mind that we weren’t going to let this happen.” The Nishga Girl was built by Jack Tasaka, a Japanese-Canadian boat builder who lived in Port Edward. The National Association of Japanese Canadians raised money to have the boat transported to the Canadian Museum of Civilization in the late 90s.

Noma told the Ottawa Citizen the decision to give away the Nishga Girl was an insult, and he was upset the organization wasn’t consulted prior to the decision. Following last week’s meeting, both Nyce and Noma are happy the Nishga Girl will remain at the museum. Nyce said he was pleased with the tone of the gathering. “[Museum representatives] were very respectful at the meeting. They apologized many times for the mistake,” said Nyce, who wore full hereditary chief regalia to the affair.

Empty seats for political theatre

P

remier Christy Clark will be off to Niagara-on-theLake, Ont. to meet with her fellow premiers in what is now loftily called the Council of the Federation. These gatherings used to be called First Ministers’ Conferences, and there was a set ritual, largely designed for the consumption of network television. Provincial premiers ganged up on the prime minister to demand federal “funding” for every conceivable need, just as municipal leaders get together each year to present their demands to the B.C. government. Prime Minister Stephen Harper ended the show, declining to play the role of villain in this bit of political summer stock theatre, and it’s unlikely that any future national leader would reverse this prudent decision. The result, at least among western premiers, has been Tom Fletcher a quieter, more pragmatic effort to work together, rather than clumsy attempts to play a shell game with taxpayers’ pockets. The public got tired of this routine some time ago. I don’t need a poll to tell me this is one of the reasons for the decline in voter participation and engagement in issues. Today, politicians frequently remind themselves out loud that there is “only one taxpayer” supporting the squabbling layers of this over-governed country. And yet, the same mistake keeps being made over and over by opposition politicians, and dutifully reported by the news media. The notion that all problems can and should be solved by “more government funding” is now so engrained in our education system that it seems inescapable. One of the NDP’s big “gotcha” items last week was“Christy Clark’s wheelchair tax”. An average $35 monthly rent for wheelchairs is charged at the majority of care facilities, which are contracted by the health authority. Operators charge as they see fit for maintenance, disinfection and replacement of this equipment, for patients who don’t own their own chairs. In all facilities, the fee is waived for those who can’t afford it. It would be useful for our politicians to frankly discuss the trend towards contracted health services, and the role of user fees in forcing people to take more responsibility for maintaining their own health. But that is not what happens. The narrative of dumping frail, impoverished seniors from their wheelchairs has no relationship to reality, but it’s how post-modern political theatre is done.

Port’s plans will help Indecent exposure trumps good deed keep harbour low-risk

Letters to the editor

Editor: I am disturbed by the article in your Northern View paper dated July 3, 2013 headed “Indecent exposure worries city” reporting on the Rotary Club of Prince Rupert’s contribution of a $10,000 sign for the pull-off project of the City of Prince Rupert. I sincerely hope that the city council did not just dwell on the negativity of Rotary’s sign bringing indecent bathroom use of the site, but rather that your article did not include the City’s appreciation for the generous donation of Rotary. The city council needs to recognize the value of volunteer service and contributions of

organizations such as Rotary. Support for our community is foremost in the objects of our Rotary Club. Just in this fiscal year, Rotary -Nancy Eidsvik Club of Prince Rupert has donated approximately $116,000 to the community and its organizations. This is an amazing amount of funds, which does not include the service aspect of our Rotary members. City council should always say “thank you” for all the volunteer services by organizations and individuals and leave the negativity unsaid. Nancy Eidsvik Prince Rupert

“City council should always say thank you... and leave the negativity unsaid.”

No peace with 10-year teacher deal Editor: Sitting at my school’s graduation tonight was lovely and emotional and everything you hope for when you are a high school teacher; a beautiful and poignant send-off of children to become successful and productive adults. But, (and you knew there was a but coming) during the ceremony the valedictorian said something I found quite profound. She said, “Most of us were in grade 1 in our first week of school when the tragedy of 9/11 happened.” And it hit me. What a world these children have had to grow up in. A world of fear, constant world tensions and the inundation of security, intrusion and general societal paranoia. A world where distrust and an overabundance of precautions are now the norm. And then the other shoe dropped for me.  The government I work for wants to lock in a contract with BC teachers for 10 years. I am in no means suggesting the tragedy of 9/11 is the same as our contract struggle. Not at all. I just would suggest that we look at how much the world has changed since then and how changes in BC Education that will be required in the next 10 years will be significantly thwarted if we don’t have a school system and

a collective agreement that will be flexible and adaptive to students’ and teachers’ needs. The world is changing. So is education. And while we call for a system that will be adaptive to 21st Century needs, we are being told labour peace is the benefit of a 10-year deal. But what about the needs of a system to evolve? A 10year deal thwarts and throttles that because so much cannot be negotiated for 10 years. Of course I’d like labour peace, but to suggest that a 10-year deal is good for BC is much like suggesting we all should just stick with the automobile we have now and not get a new one if the current one no longer runs or is fixable or needs new tires. If asking to keep up with the cost of living and having contract rights that were illegally (not rhetoric here folks, but court-determined) returned is considered greedy, then yes, I am greedy.  If asking for the government of BC to respect both students and teachers in this province by funding education (and yes, gasp, perhaps raise taxes to do it) is the stuff of pipedreams, then call me a smoker.

RE:PORT

ver the last decade, the Prince Rupert Port Authority has been planning proactively for the safe, responsible and sustainable development of port lands. The result has been an improved ability to react quickly to trade and development opportunities, and the capacity to provide solutions that work in the long term while addressing many different priorities in the community. Planning for the safe, responsible and sustainable transit of vessels has also been a focus for the Port Authority. The demand for trade between Asia and North America has Prince Rupert poised for significant growth. Between the planned expansion of coal and container terminals, and the potential new bulk terminals for cargoes like potash and LNG, the volume of goods moving through the port could triple over the next decade. As a result, annual commercial vessel calls to the Port could increase from the 400 we see today to more than 1,000 in ten years. It’s with this growth in mind that the Port Authority is working with partner agencies to prepare for a busier harbour. By actively evaluating potential future scenarios, the Port Authority is making sure it is confident that any potential cargoes or vessels can be handled in a safe and secure manner. One of the ways this has already occurred is through a Prince Rupert Marine Risk Assessment carried out by an independent global expert, Det Norske Veritas (DNV). DNV measured the risks and challenges of the harbour and its approach routes by comparing them to other ports around the world. This measurement provided the Port Authority with an understanding of the risks and challenges that may be presented by new types of vessels and cargoes. Generally, DNV found that the Port of Prince Rupert—with its open and unobstructed approaches and relatively light marine traffic—is a very safe international gateway for commercial shipping. DNV also looked at the impact of future scenarios. Not surprisingly, increasing traffic from 400 to 1,000 vessels comes with challenges. However, DNV made several specific recommendations that could help control that impact. For example, DNV found that the most likely incident is a vessel grounding, which is very effectively dealt with by increasing use of tugs and pilots. In fact, DNV indicated that a more liberal use of close escort tugs in the approach would reduce the chance of grounding incidents by about 80%—a significant risk reduction. As previously discussed, the Prince Rupert safety regime already involves expert marine pilots and tug operators specializing in the safe escort and docking of vessels. Enhancing the use of tug packages and ship escorts is just one way we can make a safe port even safer. Based on DNV’s analysis and recommendations, the Port Authority has embarked on a comprehensive revision of its practices and procedures for vessels operating in the Port of Prince Rupert to identify potential scope for improvement. Some of the DNV recommendations under active consideration by the Port Authority include the enhancement of the harbour’s navigational aids, the introduction of ”no-go” zones to separate commercial vessel traffic, and (potentially) radar coverage.

Equipment upgrades at the Prince Rupert Airport (YPR) may prevent aircraft from landing in the coming months. YPR Manager Rick Reed said NAV Canada, the country’s air navigation services provider, will be replacing the airport’s instrument landing system (ILS) as part of the corporation’s ILS replacement program in airports across Canada. “It’s not the airport that’s doing this, it’s NAV Canada... It’s their instrument they’re replacing,” Reed said, adding the replacement wasn’t requested by YPR. Airport instrument landing systems provide precision guidance to aircraft approaching and landing on runways. “In essence, in poor weather [an ILS] helps the pilot find the runway and land,” Reed said. Using the ILS during landing means aircraft can descend to a couple hundred feet above ground

to gain visibility of the runway. Without a functioning ILS, aircraft will have to stay higher in the air while attempting to see the runway. “In bad weather there’s a possibility we may have missed flights,” Reed said. NAV Canada will be working at YPR from Aug. 19 until Oct. 17, with the airport being without an ILS during that time. There will be an instrument approach for landing during this time. Reed said airlines will follow their regular procedures in cases of poor weather conditions preventing aircraft from landing. In the past, Prince Rupert airlines have landed in other northern airports and transported passengers back to Prince Rupert, or have required passengers to wait until the next available flight to return. Reed said it will be up to airlines to decide what to do in cases when aircraft cannot land at YPR. The replacement is being paid by NAV Canada, and won’t cost Prince Rupert’s airport money.

Festival scrapped for Snowbirds performance The Snowbirds have confirmed an Aug. 14 aerobatic performance in Prince Rupert, but spectators shouldn’t expect the day-long festival they enjoyed two years ago. The event this year will feature a 45-minute aeronautic performance only. In 2011 Prince Rupert was treated to a preshow celebration with live music, vendors and children’s’ activities, costing the city $11,000, but this year budgetary constraints have forced organizers to scale drastically back. “It will be a lean show in terms of the community activities, but the Snowbirds show itself will still be amazing,” says Snowbirds Committee chair, Nancy Eidsvick. “We’ve been put on a very limited budget, and the funds were all raised through community support people.

very limited to what else we can do.” Spectators can best view the show from the waterfront, in addition to the Rupert Square parking lot and Mariners Park which will both be wheelchair friendly. People are encouraged to bring radios, as a Snowbirds official will be broadcasting live commentary throughout the show. Financial approval for the Snowbirds performance barely passed a City Council vote last February, as members questioned the expense during a time of deep budget cuts. The initial $20,000 request was turned down, but $7,000 eventually approved. The money came from the remaining centennial celebrations fund that was set aside for future community activities. An additional $5,000 was raised though the community. Still, the City of Prince Rupert’s $7,000 contribution has raised eyebrows as there is no guarantee bad weather won’t cancel the performance yet again. Nonetheless

The City of Prince Rupert council and RCMP have expressed great concern about the safety of skateboarders, who they say are putting themselves and others in jeopardy.

Prince Rupert skateboarders need a lesson BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Many of Prince Rupert’s young skateboarders and long-boarders need a lesson in safety. The City of Prince Rupert is planning to start dialogue with RCMP with the hope of avoiding a potential tragedy involving boarders and vehicles. Coun. Anna Ashley suggested creating an educational campaign on skateboard and longboard safety after hearing concerns from numerous Rupertites, and witnessing risky incidents herself. “I’m not interested in trying to take away kids’ fun ... but I think we have an accident waiting to happen,” Ashley said at the last city council meeting. On a dark morning Ashley said she witnessed two young people coming down a street while laying on a longboards, and didn’t notice the riders until the last minute. “Kids have fun and think nothing can harm them,” she said, adding some boarders act like the rules of the road don’t apply to them. Another issue Ashley has is that many of the young

“I think we have an accident waiting to happen.” - Coun. Anna Ashley people on boards she’s witnessed haven’t been wearing helmets. “I don’t think they realize how dangerous it is,” she said. Coun. Judy Carlick-Pearson said she’s also seen many boarders without helmets, and suggested the city search for funding to give helmets away to underprivileged kids. Const. Matt Ericson, community and media liaison for the Prince Rupert RCMP, said police have received complaints regarding longboarders and skateboarders. Under the British Columbian Motor Vehicle Act there aren’t any regulations pertaining to skateboards

and longboards making riders wear protective equipment or obey rules on roadways. “When it comes to an enforcement standpoint, it makes things rather difficult,” Ericson said. While RCMP cannot punish riders for not wearing safety equipment or being a hazard to vehicles on the road, Ericson said RCMP try to bring awareness to young riders. Ericson said RCMP try to push skateboard and long-board riders to wear proper safety equipment, obey the rules of the road and most importantly, be aware of their surroundings. “We really impress upon young people participating in these types of activities to do it in a safe, responsible manner, ensuring their safety and others around them,” he said. “Impeding traffic by driving in the middle of the roadway and that sort of thing causes a real safety hazard for not only the skateboarder, but other motorists that are trying to use the road ways as well.” The city will instigate a discussion with the RCMP regarding the campaign, possibly including the recreational department and school district in the process.

Big cost priorities for city Freeman New liquid waste facility and waterline on to-do list

By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The City of Prince Rupert has listed creating a liquid solid waste facility and new waterline as city priorities, although the projects won’t be completed any time soon. Bob Long, Prince Rupert city manager, informed council of the new, large-scale priorities at the last city council meeting. “These are the two fundamental services to any community along with roads. Our basic infrastructure has really aged and needs improvements,” Long said at the meeting. Prince Rupert’s city manager said the most important strategic priority moving forward will be the issue of liquid waste management. The city currently has a joint sanitary and storm collection system throughout Prince Rupert, with waste being discharged by way of 10 outfalls into the harbour. The city will have to come up with a new strategy surrounding what to do with liquid waste following new federal regulations. “We will need to treat the discharge over time... separate the storm water from the sanitary sewage and treat the sanitary

sewage in either two or three locations,” said Long, estimating the project will cost $130 million to complete. “Obviously this will be a substantial financial burden on the community over time. We hope to lay out a plan on how we can minimize that,” he said. Long said the city will have ongoing discussions with the government regarding the time-frame Prince Rupert will be allowed to come into compliance with new regulations. As for the waterline, Long said its time for the city to start looking at replacing the century-old system. “From a strategic point of view we need to make sure we have a very capable, robust water system. At the moment I wouldn’t say that would be true,” he said. Replacing Prince Rupert’s waterline is another deep-pocket expense for the city, with Long estimating the project could cost up to $30 million. City staff will be bringing plans to council on how the city will finance improvements and the schedule of the extensive projects. “These are very long-term 30 and 40 year municipal objectives. It’s important we [get] a good plan moving forward,” Long said.

Al Sheppard, the District of Port Edward’s first mayor, has been acknowledged as a Freeman of the District of Port Edward. Family of the late Sheppard attended a short ceremony held in Port Edward’s council chambers where Sheppard’s plaque and photo was unveiled. For three decades Sheppard was part of Port Edward’s council, serving as mayor from 1966 to 1986. Sheppard was instrumental in organizing the incorporation of Port Edward and was a driving force in establishing the North Pacific Cannery as a historical site. Picture is Sheppard’s wife Barb, and children Christine Forrest and Doug Sheppard unveiling the Freeman of the City plague last week. A Freeman of the City is a honoured bestowed by a municipality upon a valued member of the community. Sheppard has already been named as a Freeman of the City of Prince Rupert.

The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

DFO defends dungeness fishery closure Moulting pregnant females feared at risk

BY QUINN BENDER PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans has partially clarified it’s reasons to keep the Dungeness Crab fishery closed until its regular Aug. 1 start date. North Coast fishermen shut down their monitoring program of the fishery last week in protest of what they say is the DFO’s misinterpretation of data that led to the decision. But DFO North Coast Area director, Mel Kotyk, told the Northern View assertions the department’s findings were misinterpreted, or that the DFO is too embarrassed to admit its mistake, are entirely unfounded. “There’s no mistake in our mind. We’re not embarrassed to say an area has to close down because there are conservation concerns,” says Kotyk. “They’re not catching a sufficient number of males — that should tell you enough in itself.” Of eight surveys conducted, Kotyk says there were too few males for an adequate sampling, and on the ninth survey they found mostly female, moulting crabs. Kotyk’s concern with opening the fishery is that pregnant females in a soft-shell state will be caught in large numbers then likely die or be eaten by the time they drift back through the water column to the ocean floor. “Does the protocol state we look at soft-shell females? No. Because we only keep the males. But we cannot ignore the fact that females are in the traps, that they’re being handled. They’re in the reproductive state. The fact is, if the [fishermen] are not getting the males and they’re only getting female soft shells, you can’t ignore that. In all likelihood, with the handling and the depth, it’s probably going to kill [the females]. The Area A Crab Association, the officially recognized advisory organization to the DFO for the north coast, spends more than $100,000 per year on surveys scientists use to determine whether the fishery should stay closed due to moulting males. Paul

Shaun Thomas / The Northern View

Dungeness crab fishermen block the fisheries offices in Prince Rupert June 29 to protest the closure of the fishery due to disputed scientific data on moulting crabs.

“In all likelihood, with the handling and the depth, it’s probably going to kill [the females]. - Mel Kotyk Edwards, president of the Area “A” Crab Association argues the DFO’s refusal for an early season, based on the presence of soft-shell female crabs, “has no scientific basis.”

“To start using moulting female crabs as a trigger to close the fishery is unheard of. It’s taken us a long time and a lot of science to get us to this point. To see it all thrown out the window, after 15 years, is really depressing… crab fishermen are incredibly proud of the strict monitoring and rigorous science we have pioneered and funded for the sustainability of our fishery.” According to the Area A Crab Association the north coast dungeness crab industry is worth about $15 million annually in landed value, and employs about 300 people.

Haida Gwaii, Alaska quakes may be linked

Research into last year’s powerful tremblors still giving scientists rare insights By quinn bender Haida Gwaii / The Northern View

Preliminary research indicates the two powerful earthquakes that shook the north several months ago may be linked, offering seismologists a rare research opportunity into the predictability of earthquake and tsunami behaviour. Scientists in Washington State are preparing an article on the topic for peer review, while Natural Resources Canada seismologist Dr. John Cassidy has undertaken his own field studies that are pointing toward the same conclusion. “This is something that’s not really understood,” says Cassidy. “There’s a potential triggering by smaller earthquakes from a larger, distant earthquake, as waves from somewhere around the world pass through a certain region. That was discovered just over a decade ago. Our research will provide better assessments of hazards and how earthquake hazard varies with time. So when a large earthquake happens you may be able to highlight areas that are more susceptible to future earthquakes.” Since the two powerful temblors that

Evidence is mounting that the two powerful earthquakes last October and January may be linked, a phenomena discovered only 10 years ago, but far from understood.

struck just 70 days and 300 kilometres apart—a 7.7-magnitude earthquake near Haida Gwaii last October, and a 7.5-magnitude earthquake Jan. 5 off the coast of Alaska, Cassidy

installed instruments on Haida Gwaii to measure surface movements from the smaller aftershocks to get an accurate picture of the seismic fault and how it slipped. Instruments were

also added to the sea floor to help determine whether the quakes have added pressure to the fault. It’s hoped the research will show what controls an earthquake, and what dictates where it stops slipping along the fault. Cassidy’s ultimate goal is to improve earthquake and tsunami response for Haida Gwaii but also Vancouver Island. The Haida Gwaii quake is seen as a miniature version of the mega-thrust earthquakes in these highly-populated areas. Haida Gwaii is still experiencing small aftershocks on a magnitude of one and two, which Cassidy says is normal after a strong earthquake as the 7.7 tremblor last October. The west coast of Moresby Island is also still active, moving very slowly toward the ocean. At the time of the earthquake sections of the coast moved by as much as one metre. In the coming months Cassidy will monitor the after-slip to determine precisely when it changes direction, to better understand the timing of when things return to a normal pattern of movement. It could be months, or even years, before the research is concluded and peer reviewed.

Train lessons? B.C. marijuana vote gets green light By Tom Fletcher VICTORIA / The Northern View

The B.C. government will incorporate lessons from the Lac Megantic rail disaster in its own effort to develop “world class” land-based oil spill protection, Environment Minister Mary Polak says. Polak said Monday that while rail traffic is regulated by the federal government, the province’s target for proposed oil pipeline safety have led to discussion with Ottawa and railway operators. The runaway train that destroyed part of Lac Megantic, Quebec in a huge explosion and fire Saturday night was carrying light crude from shale oil deposits in North Dakota to a refinery in New Brunswick. The oil industry across North America has increasingly looked to rail and barge transportation of crude as pipeline expansion has fallen behind increasing production. “Whenever we see an event like this, our main concern is to learn from it and do everything we can to ensure that nothing like this would ever happen again,” Polak said. “So we will be watching the federal investigation very closely.” Polak said there is no simple answer to the question of whether pipelines are safer than rail for transporting oil. “There is differing opinion on either side, and much depends on what kind of topography you’re dealing with in a particular location,” she said. Transport Canada increased restrictions on rail operations after two serious accidents in recent years. Train lengths were restricted on CN’s B.C. operations near Prince George after an August 2006 collision between two trains with a fire involving gasoline and lumber cars. In 2005 a CN derailment in the Cheakamus Canyon resulted in a tank car loaded with caustic soda spilling in the river, killing thousands of fish. In both incidents, the available locomotive and braking power were a key focus for investigators.

Petition drive starts to decriminalize pot By Tom Fletcher VICTORIA / The Northern View

Elections BC has given approval in principle to marijuana activist Dana Larsen’s bid to lead a petition drive for de-criminalizing marijuana possession. Larsen has proposed that B.C. go around the federal law with a “Sensible Policing Act” that would disallow the use of B.C. police resources to prosecute simple possession of small amounts of pot by adults. This fall, Larsen will be allowed to begin collecting signatures in an effort to force an initiative vote similar to that used to reverse the harmonized sales tax. Individuals and groups have until Aug. 12 to register with Elections BC to oppose the initiative, run ads for or against the petition or collect signatures. Larsen, who was involved with the B.C. Marijuana Party before seeking the leadership of the B.C. NDP in 2011, has worked for the last year to build support for what he calls Sensible BC. His organization will have 90 days from Sept. 9 to collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered provincial voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts. If that threshold is reached, Elections BC would hold a provincewide initiative vote, likely by mail as was done to repeal the HST. Decriminalizing pot has received mainstream support in recent years,

This fall, the Cannabis Crusader, Dana Larsen will begin to lead a drive to hold a vote whether or not to decriminalize marijuana.

including a narrow majority vote at the 2012 Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. In a debate at that convention in Victoria last September, former B.C. Liberal attorney general Geoff Plant advocated for loosening marijuana laws, as has since been done in the U.S. states of Washington and Colorado. The idea was opposed by criminologist  Darryl Plecas, who was elected B.C. Liberal MLA

for  Abbotsford South in the May provincial election. Larsen has had a colourful career, including editor of Vancouver-based Cannabis Culture magazine and cofounder of the Vancouver Seed Bank, which has sold seeds for marijuana, poppies, peyote and coca. Larsen resigned as an NDP candidate in the 2008 federal election, after videos surfaced showing his drug use a decade earlier.
