Salmon fishermen back to work Non-union vote approves 28 cents on pink salmon

BY QUINN BENDER PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

News Downtown Rupert, on the rebound? Page A3

Salmon fishermen have returned to their fishing grounds after accepting Canfisco’s offer for 28 cents per pound of pink salmon Saturday, according to the United Fishermen and Allied Workers’ Union. The day prior, fishermen rejected an offer of 27 cents per pound with faint hope of further negotiations, causing sharp divisions on whether to turn around and accept the offer. “It sounds like we’re squabbling over pennies, but when you’re dealing with thousands of pounds of salmon, it means a lot,” one fisherman told The Northern View. The fishermen were originally demanding 32 cents per pound for their Prince Rupert deliveries. Captains and crews on all 36 Canfisco vessels tied up their boats and walked away from their jobs Wednesday afternoon.

“It sounds like we’re squabbling over pennies.”

The Canadian Coast Guard recently announced it will be watching over the removal of pollutants including oil from a sunken WWII U.S. Army vessel near Prince Rupert. The coast guard will oversee what it’s calling a “significant environmental protection operation,” with Public Works and Government Services Canada currently seeking proposals for a pair of third-party contractors. The first contractor will conduct the oil removal operation with the second group providing oil response services in case oil leaks from the vessel as the operation

“...there’s people in the neighbourhood that depend on the fishery.” - Roger Girouard takes place. “The goal is to clean the vessel to the maximum degree possible with the understanding there’s people in the neighbourhood that depend on the fishery. We want to limit their exposure to these pollutants,” Roger Girouard, the Canadian Coast Guard’s assistant commissioner of the western region, said.

The U.S.S. Brigadier General M.G. Zalinski ran aground in 1946 during a storm and sank in the Grenville Channel, near Hartley Bay and approximately 100 kilometres south of Prince Rupert. The Zalinski came to rest upside down in 34 metres of water about 20 metres from the shore of Hartley Bay. While Gitga’at Nation Chief

Councillor Arnold Clifton could not be reached for comment, Hartley Bay Councillor Marven Robinson said the Gitga’at Nation will be watching over the operation with a close eye. “It’s only taken how many years of the Zalinski leaking before we’re finally able to do something...? We’re going to watch it close and see how it’s dealt with,” Robinson said, the nation wants to be as included as possible in the process. The Zalinski was first put on the coast guard’s radar in 2003 when Bunker C oil began surfacing in the area. Prior, the vessel’s location was unknown.

Protest halts record catch Ammunition, oil a concern SALMON from Page A1 They gave the company 48 hours to reinstate prices they say were arbitrarily dropped overnight. When the deadline expired with the fishermen rejecting what was believed to be the final offer, they faced the prospect of walking away from from one of the most abundant seasons on record. The fishermen’s spokesperson, Chris Cook, claimed the company violated a 2011 agreement to hold the price of pink salmon at 32 cents per pound. When Canfisco early in the week cut their price to 25 cents per pound approximately 200 fishermen and skippers rallied outside the Prince Rupert processing facility for an informal, non-union vote on the 48-hour protest. Cook said Canfisco lowered the price arbitrarily because the fishermen have no leverage since the company had absorbed its major competitors, and owns 90 per cent of the fishing vessels. “We have no bargaining power,” Cook said. “We used to have a minimum price that they couldn’t go lower. But we don’t have that now. They won’t even sit at the table. The same fish we’re getting for [28 cents] a pound

“We have no bargaining power.” - Chris Cook

you’re paying two or three dollars a pound at Safeway.” Canfisco representative Rob Morely told The Northern View the huge returns this season, plus massive estimates of 56 million salmon returning to their Alaskan competitors, will likely push market prices down at least 15 per cent, making the price cut to fishermen necessary. He added the 2011 agreement was for that year alone. “We have already caught more pink salmon this year than we planned on catching for the entire season, north and south combined, including what’s expected from the Fraser [river],” Morely said. Canfisco added approximately 200 workers to its plant to handle the volume. Morely said if the fishermen had walked away they would have left behind one of their most successful seasons, even at the reduced price.

ZALINSKI from Page A1 The ship’s manifest showed the vessel’s capacity for 700 tonnes of fuel. Girouard said because the size of upwelling oil wasn’t significant, the coast guard’s initial sense was there wasn’t much original oil remaining on board. Girouard said that opinion shifted over the past few years. “The last few years there’s been an increase in the size and severity of the spills. We’ve gone down and done some patching, but decided ... the trend line wasn’t very good and decided to go forward with a plan to remove the pollutants and get in front of this issue instead of let time and weather give us a situation that wouldn’t be very pretty,” he said. Girouard said when coast guard divers went down to view the vessel, they noticed the ship’s rivets had popped, allowing oil to escape the vessel. The leak of oil isn’t continual, which Girouard said has the coast guard wondering if they are just pockets of oil escaping. “Maybe when we get down there we’ll realize it’s only pockets we need to clean up. It may be that some of the fuel

tanks are still intact and we have to bring up an awful lot,” he said. While the first priority will be to remove as much oil from the vessel as possible, the mission will also include cleaning other pollutants off the vessel. Girouard said there was some dry cargo on the Zalinski when it sank, including paint cans, turpentine cans, and 40 gallon drums of diesel oil.

Robinson said an issue he has with the operation is that it doesn’t address the ammunition remaining in the vessel. “I don’t know enough about how [the ammunition] will react over time ... I don’t know how long it will take for it to become harmful,” he said. The operation is expected to start in September and conclude in December.

Downtown business: on the rebound? Improvement grants hoped to fuel growth By quinn bender PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The City of Prince Rupert hopes a new business-facade improvement program will help attract and retain new tenants in the floundering downtown core. The Prince Rupert Business Façade Improvement Program, financed by the Northern Development Initiative Trust, offers a 25 per cent reimbursement grant of up to $5,000 for exterior improvement projects. The launch of the program comes as more businesses are closing down with no one in line to buy them out, nor fill the space with a new enterprise. Prince Rupert Mayor Jack Mussallem now expects the business community will embrace the new program and help kickstart occupancy in these and the many other vacant shops. “This incentive is a tremendous opportunity for business owners to improve the appearance of the buildings on their property,” Mussallem said. “These improvements will help attract and retain tenants and enhance the quality of life residents, workers and visitors enjoy.” The latest businesses to announce closures include McLean and

Rudderham, Manson’s Jewellers, Little Big Horse Studio, The Chad’s Smoke Shop, Envy and Anna’s Couture, which is moving to a home-based operation. Derek Baker, economic development officer with the Prince Rupert and Port Edward Economic Development Corporation, which coordinated the improvement program, said small communities everywhere are challenged by depressed business activity like that on Second and Third Avenue. “The landscape of retail has changed, obviously with the Internet and mobility of shoppers nowadays,” he said. Prince Rupert is in the envious position of watching big-industry develop on its shores, he added, but “it could be a number of years before we really see development flocking into downtown as a result of these major industrial projects.” In the past few years many of the shuttered shops were the result of their owners’ retirement. In the old economy few people risked taking over these businesses, but now, according to John Farrell, general manager of Community Futures Pacific Northwest, the export industry has created a new economic forecast, an optimism for growth, that’s already changed the commercial face of downtown.

Jeff King starts another mural at the back of Rupert Wood’ N Steel Construction on Fraser St., as part of the city’s beautification campaign that was bolstered last week with a new Facade Improvement Grant for downtown businesses.

“But you don’t see it,” he said. “That’s because there’s a number of businesses on Third Avenue that could have been closed, but they found other owners so they’re staying open, keeping the jobs and maintaining that presence on Third Avenue. We’re going to see more and more of that.” A growing number of entrepreneurs are consulting with Community Futures on a variety of business startups. They are mostly home-based enterprises, but with the expectation of growth and

eventual relocation to traditional shops in the business districts. “What we’re hearing is: ‘the future looks bright and I need to get into business now.’” “This is all just speculation, but I suspect we’re going to see a densified Cow Bay—boutiques, gift shops, restaurants and marine transportation businesses. And you’ll see more of the banking, business, consulting, insurance, and government up here [on Third and Second Avenue].”

The confusion over LNG

S

o how many LNG plants will be open by 2018? I am not prone to being confused – at least not yet – but there are times when our august governing bodies leave me feeling so. One example is the newly re-elected BC Liberal government. During the year-long re-election campaign Christy Clark promised one operational LNG plant on the North Coast by 2015 and three by 2020. But, when she appointed Rich Coleman as LNG supremo that schedule was gone. Which made perfect sense to me. Parties seeking to govern promise all sorts of things but if successful are often quick to forget those promises. Malcolm Baxter That, for better or GUEST VIEW worse,  is politics. Then the provincial government brought down its June budget update and went where even it had not bravely gone before when it came to projected dates for operational LNG plants in B.C. I refer specifically to the top right hand corner of page 54 which I will quote at length. “The Ministry of Natural Gas Development engaged independent consultants to conduct studies examining the potential employment impacts and new provincial revenues from LNG development in B.C.” So far, so reasonable. Then came this. “The studies assumed five LNG plants ... and most plants fully operational by 2018.” Let’s be kind and interpret “most” as being just three, the minimum number that allows you to use that word. So we went from three operational by 2020 to three operational by 2018, two years earlier? Huh? Did I miss something? But the confusion level really cranked up when I read a submitted article by Supremo Coleman in the July 2 edition of the Kitimat Northern Sentinel.

Letters to the editor

Taylor letter nearly laughable Editor: Re: Cullen mail-out is taxpayer abuse, The Northern View, July 24. Having Rod Taylor accusing Nathan Cullen of “taxpayer abuse” and “brainwashing” would be laughable if religious fundamentalism in the U.S.

and Muslim world were not on the rise.   When a duly-elected MP from a secular party is chastised with double speak, I fear Canada may be next on the fanatics list to “return to our religious heritage.” I am entirely in

favour of elected parties receiving taxpayer money reimbursements if this prohibits the gross spending by corporations on elections as practiced in the U.S. George Farrell Queen Charlotte City

Horgan wrong on power project Editor: While NDP energy critic John Horgan asserts there is no business case for a nation building project like the Northwest Transmission Line, a line that will bring power to a huge part of the province currently running off diesel generators, our government believes investments such as this are exactly what BC Hydro should be doing. This project will open up world class mineral deposits and support new mines, like Red Chris, one of the top 10 copper

gold deposits in the world. In fact, the Mining Association of BC estimates the line could attract more than $15 billion in mining investment, creating up to 10,000 jobs and generating $300 million in annual tax revenues. None of this happens unless we build the line to provide the power these mines need. We need to ensure we have a diverse grid that can provide reliable power today, and into the future. That’s why we continue to support new, cleaner sources of power such

as wind and run of river. Do these sources produce power at a higher cost than what our heritage assets do? Of course they do. Like most other things, it costs more today to produce power than it did decades ago. But these sources are cleaner than alternatives such as coal or gas and less expensive than building brand new hydroelectric dams. Bill Bennett Minister of Energy and Mines Victoria

Scratching your head over LNG GUEST VIEW from Page A4 Right now there are three proposed LNG plants in Kitimat: BC LNG, Kitimat LNG and Shell’s LNG Canada. Coleman says BC LNG, “could become the first facility to export LNG from B.C.’s north coast.” I don’t disagree and it should be able to hit the new 2018 target with time to spare. On Kitimat LNG Coleman describes it as “moving forward”, but sidesteps putting any date on it. Let’s be generous and assume that Chevron/Apache are able to sign up customers and give the project the green light within the next 12

months. That should allow them to hit the target date as well. Two down, one to go. But that one — LNG Canada — will miss the target, according to Coleman. “The facility could begin exporting LNG in 2019”, he says, but even then adds “provided all timelines are met.” So logically the third-plantby-2018 the budget update talks about must be in Prince Rupert. That is one heck of a stretch given those proposals all have to get an export permit, get through the environmental assessment process, consult and accommodate First Nations, find customers and then

build the facility. And I don’t think for one minute Coleman believes that can be done in just five years, which is doubtless why he never mentioned the budget update target in his article. So on the one hand the government through the budget update suggests one thing and the man in charge of actually bringing home the LNG bacon says another. Hey, wait a minute, it’s not me that’s confused, it’s the government. Which makes me feel much better.

Marine pilots essential to coastal navigation

E

RE:PORT

ach of the approximately 400 commercial vessels that called on the Port of Prince Rupert in 2011 and 2012 had as many as two dozen foreign crew members aboard. Plus one professional Canadian mariner charged with its safe navigation. These individuals are known as marine pilots. In this province they are members of the BC Coast Pilots Association, an organization of 98 highly experienced and licensed mariners with the sole job of ensuring the thousands of commercial vessels visiting this coast arrive and depart in a safe and secure manner. Under Canadian law, every foreign ship over 350 gross registered tons is required to use the services of a marine pilot once it enters the waters of British Columbia. In the case of the Port of Prince Rupert, a pilot’s job begins at Triple Island at the edge of the outer harbour, where he boards an inbound ship via the yellow and white Pilot Launch boat. Once aboard, marine pilots use their expertise to advise ship captains on the safest routing and procedures to bring vessels to either a terminal berth or one of the 30 harbour anchorages. While foreign captains are very familiar with their own vessels, they are not familiar with the specifics of each port of call they enter. BC Coast Pilots have many years of experience and are trained to be intimately familiar with the coastlines, harbours, weather conditions, tides and regulations for this licensed area. Pilots are also familiar with the characteristics of various types of ships and how they react to the variable wind, tidal and current conditions, allowing them to ensure each ship, crew and cargo arrive in a safe and efficient manner without any harm to the marine environment. To become a marine pilot, an individual must work his way through a seafaring career to the position of captain, and then may apply to take written and oral examinations to become a licensed BC Coast Pilot. If he passes, the individual will go on a waiting list until a piloting position becomes available. At this time he undergoes a six to twelve month apprenticeship program under the direction of senior pilots. Once licensed and working, BC Coast Pilots work 20-day periods and are on call 24 hours a day during this time. Pilots may only work a maximum of eight hours on an assignment before receiving a specified rest period. They also have prescribed hours of rest following each assignment to avoid fatigue. In order to provide constant coverage for required vessel movements, there are always three pilots stationed in Prince Rupert at any given time. Pilots provide one of the vital services that helps protect Prince Rupert’s marine environment and the entire 15,000 miles of British Columbia coastline. By navigating all inbound and outbound commercial vessels in the Port of Prince Rupert, they safeguard the global trade that continues to grow through this northern gateway.

A&W pushes Rupert opening date to 2014 BY QUINN BENDER PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

A&W Food Services of Canada still plans to open a restaurant in Prince Rupert, but the process has been delayed by at least one year. The restaurant is expected to bring about 20 permanent full- and part-time jobs, plus up to 20 additional seasonal positions. A&W spokesperson Patti Parente said the bestcase scenario would see a late-2013 opening date, but in all likelihood it will be sometime in 2014 once permitting and location scouting is factored into the Quinn Bender / The Northern View process.

“Everyone is committed, both corporate and our franchisee, and hopefully we’ll have some news soon on a location,” says Parente. “We’ve got a few irons in the fire.” The Prince Rupert restaurant was awarded to a franchisee already in the A&W system. This will be the second time A&W opened a restaurant in Prince Rupert. The company demolished the old location years ago as part of a business decision to do away with drive-in style restaurants that made the chain famous. “We chose not to rebuild [in Prince Rupert] as with many other markets,” Parente said. “Now we’re very confident with the market the way it is today, but there’s also lots of interesting news about Prince Rupert and the opportunities from a business perspective.”

LNG job demand soars BY QUINN BENDER PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Northern B.C. will need to find a staggering 135,000 permanent and temporary workers to meet the needs of all the liquid natural gas projects proposed for the province. The new B.C. Natural Gas Workforce Strategy Committee released the numbers last week, along with several recommendations to immediately roll out an aggressive training and recruitment plan before the projects are even approved. Two LNG terminals have been proposed for Prince Rupert, but the committee has not released data specific to the region. While no company has made a final investment decision about their LNG projects, the committee’s report identified labour shortages as a key factor that may dissuade key players from participating in an industry potentially worth billions. “To make sure our province seizes the full opportunity of LNG, our first priority is building a strong and skilled B.C. workforce,” said Premier Christy Clark. “The committee’s report is a first step toward charting the course for LNG, and we will continue to work with all partners to make sure British Columbians remain first in line for the best opportunities.” According to consultants Grant Thornton LLP, the province will need more than 75,000 permanent skilled workers once LNG projects are fully operational, and 60,000 workers during peak construction in 2016 and 2017. Five LNG export facilities, including the two proposed for Prince Rupert, will require a technical workforce in such high numbers the region will not be able to meet the labour demand.

Shippers given incentive Port launches environmental program BY QUINN BENDER PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Prince Rupert Port Authority launched an environmental stewardship program this month that offers up to 50 per cent off harbour rates to shippers committed to sustainable practices. PRPA’s Environmental Incentive Program for Vessels (EIPV) looks at commercial vessels that implement emission reduction measures or other environmental practices. The EIPV considers environmental certification, fuel quality, technological implementation and management practices. Visiting ships can apply to qualify for one of three tier levels based on environmental performance, which enable that vessel to receive discounted harbour rates of up to 50 per cent less than the regular rate. “By offering financial incentives to shippers making a conscious effort to become more environmentally sensitive, we can motivate commercial vessel traffic to adopt more sustainable shipping practices,” said Don Krusel, president and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority. “This program is an example of the innovative policies and procedures that are helping preserve the

ecological integrity of our harbour — and which contribute to a greener industry.” The program is earning only lukewarm praise from environmental critics. Des Noble, who campaigns on North Coast fishing and habitat issues with the T. Buck Suzuki foundation in Prince Rupert, worries an incentive program sends the wrong message to the shipping industry. “It’s a step in the right direction, absolutely,” he said. “But the shipping industry should be doing

Community Dialogue This summer has been extremely busy so far for the Prince Rupert LNG project, with BG Group team members broadly interacting with stakeholders and attending many local events. Perhaps we met you during one of our visits in Prince Rupert, Port Edward and surrounding communities. The first working group of the project’s environmental assessment was held during June in Prince Rupert. Chaired by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and the BC Environmental Assessment Office, this working group includes representatives from provincial and federal government agencies, local government and First Nations that are being consulted on Prince Rupert LNG. The working group provides input to the agencies to help inform their review of the application. In the days preceding the session, we were one of the sponsors of the TRICORP NorthWest Energy Conference, which was held for First Nations leaders potentially impacted by natural gas pipeline projects. Community Dialogue - July - v1.indd 1

Our partners at Spectra Energy on the pipeline aspect of our proposed project shared in this activity and together we had an opportunity, along with other proposed LNG project proponents, to further explain the suggested pipeline route under consideration. A good conversation ensued with many valuable comments and input received from all. We also held a marine shipping and safety workshop last month. We’ve heard that shipping is a key topic of interest and we appreciated all the questions and input that we received in this initial session. We plan to hold further workshops this fall on marine shipping and other issues as we hear from community members about their specific interests. In addition, we had valuable conversations with Port Edward residents and look forward to a continued dialogue with community members in the area. During this time we are continuing our field work to understand the marine and land environment around our proposed project. Some may have noticed the arrival of a new piece of equipment that is currently positioned offshore Ridley Island.

Beginning this week, this platform rig is contracted to BG Group for a geotechnical sampling program to determine the conditions of the seabed, which will ultimately help us with the engineering design of the marine works for the LNG facility. Samples are collected through carefully positioned drilling work, all of which is fully contained in steel casing to isolate drilling fluids. As always, should you have anything on your mind pertaining to BG Group’s work in your communities, please don’t hesitate to visit our website at www.princerupertlng.ca or call our community line at 1-855-683-6710 or our community liaison Herb Pond at 250-624-9443. Until next time,

these things just out of respect for ocean, period.” For the duration of 2013, the Port Authority’s EIPV will use the Environmental Ship Index (ESI) as the method to qualify for discounts. The ESI identifies seagoing ships whose emissions are below those required by the standards of the International Maritime Organization, providing a general indication of the world’s cleaner ships. In 2014 the EIPV will be broadened to include additional qualification criteria. Community Dialogue is a collaborative promotional venture by BG Group and the Northern View

Rupert constable receives award By Martina Perry PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

A Prince Rupert RCMP constable was recently recognized for going beyond her responsibilities. Const. Jennifer Collins of the Prince Rupert RCMP became the recipient of a 2013 Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire Award (IODE) for outstanding community relations during her time in Quesnel. Collins has been posted in Prince Rupert for almost one year now, and continues to step outside her duties to support Prince Rupert. “It’s a huge honour... It’s humbling,” Collins said. Collins won the provincial level award in 2012, with her name and the names of other RCMP province winners being judged by the RCMP Commissioner to determine this year’s winner. Collins said she must point out she received the award because of partnerships with groups in Quesnel. “I was really lucky to work with a lot of great partners because that’s how work gets done,” she said. Collins went into Aboriginal Policing and worked in aboriginal communities near Quesnel, including Nazko. Collins helped put on kids camps, fitness challenges and other events to work on breaking down barriers between First Nations and the RCMP. “We wanted the kids to understand that the police were there to be helpful. We don’t want people to fear contact with police,” Collins said, adding the camp allowed families of children to see the RCMP in a positive fashion. While in Quesnel, Collins put on preventative workshops in Aboriginal communities on family violence and sexual abuse, and also assisted in training service providers about the culture and history of the areas they served.

Const. Jennifer Collins poses with two youth during the Nazko First Nations Family camping trip. The two boys were on Collins’ bannock-making team.

In Prince Rupert Collins sits on the Violence in Relationships Intervention Team and Violence in Relationships Education Committee. Collins said she’s also contributing to the completion of the a sexual assault protocol for RCMP. “There’s a lot of really positive things happening here, and a lot of dedicated service providers. We’re very lucky to have that in Prince Rupert,” she said. Collins also volunteers with the Kaien Island Elders Counsel (KIEC), and chose the group as the recipient of the $1,000 donation to a charity of her choice that comes with the award. An attendee of the event was impressed

with Collins’ efforts, and donated $100 to her to give to a charity. Last month Collins presented $1,100 to KIEC for their fundraising efforts to attend the annual elder’s gathering in Prince Rupert. The IODE is a national women’s charitable organization aiming to enhancing the quality of life for people through education assistance, community service and citizenship programs. The IODE RCMP Community Relations Award is given on behalf of the group to a member, unit or detachment of the RCMP to recognize exemplary public service to their

Prince Rupert FC capture fourth tournament title BY MARTINA PERRY

“It was a battle...”

PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Prince Rupert Football Club (PRFC) is on a roll. Prince Rupert FC won the Terrace soccer tournament last weekend to run their record to four northern B.C. tournament titles and a runner-up finish in their past five tournaments. Prince Rupert advanced to the finals on the strength of wins over Nisga’a and the host club Terrace Totem Ford. In the final, PRFC dropped the gutsy Terrace club 4-3 in extra time. “It was a battle... those young kids burnt the heck out of us,” said Kendall Wing, who took over coaching duties after being injured earlier in the season. Goals from Nathan Paolinelli, Taylor Baker and Sukhrag Sekhon knotted the match up at three as the two clubs went into extra time. With time running out, Ryan Dasilva found the range to hand PRFC their fourth title in five tournaments. PRFC also dominated at the Kitwanga Battle of the Skeena the previous weekend. Despite being down to 11 players, which hamstrung the club’s roster forcing them to play without any substitutes, PRFC downed the Hazelton Strikers 1-0 on the

strength of Ian Fronn’s late goal. PRFC’s second match pitched them against the Kitwanga Flying Chiefs with a former Prince Rupert soccer player now living in Terrace and a Terrace player bolstering the roster. Wing said the addition of Austin Mathieson and Taylor Baker made the

difference in a 3-0 shutout of the Flying Chiefs. They dropped their third game to Kispiox in a shootout, but rallied back to defeat Kitwanga Flying Chiefs in the semi-final 3-1 to gain a berth in the final against their nemesis Kispiox. In the final, PRFC returned the favour

defeating Kispiox 2-1 for their third title. The Battle of the Skeena title came on the heels of wins in Gitsgukla in May against two top clubs from Saskatchwan and in Glen Vowell where they defeated one of their biggest rivals — the same rivals that handed them their only overall tournament loss this year, the Hazelton Strikers. “Hazelton is the team to beat. It’s always a battle between us and the … Strikers,” Wing said. Wing said he expects the Strikers to make their way to Prince Rupert as PRFC will host its first tournament of the season over the Labour Day long weekend. Wing hopes Prince Rupert soccer fans will come out to watch PFRC try to get another tournament win at their home tournament. “We still have our original team members and each year we see more and more newcomers join the team. It’s really great to see that there are people in the community with the same love for soccer,” Wing said.

Tough luck in Houston for Rupert drag racers Drivers optimistic about Hot August Nites in Terrace

BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Three Prince Rupert drivers didn’t live up to their expectations earlier this month, during competition against racers from all over the north in the Houston Drag Races. Prince Rupert driver Terry Frizzell earned only 30 points toward the season standings in the Super Pro Class after being knocked out in the second round, while Ed Evans in the Pro Class was also knocked out in second round. Evans however, collected 41 points, enough for the Rupert race car driver to hang on to third in the

season standings. In the Junior Dragster Class, Prince Rupert’s Shelby Peterson blew a clutch on Day 1, prohibiting him from advancing to the second round. In the Super Pro Class at the Houston Drag Races, Terrace’s Kris Barnett came out on top with 95 points followed by Smithers’ drivers Nick Gutnechkt, 74 points, and Norm Schwegler with 63 points. The Super Pro Class consists of racers with the fastest cars. Houston’s Dieca Cooke raced her way to first in the Pro Class with 95 points followed by fellow Houston racer Ken Kapelari with 74. Speeding

his way into the third position with 63 points was Smithers’ Ed Hildebrandt. Eight racers competed for the top spots in the Junior Dragster Class at the Houston Drag Races, with Kitimat’s Tanner Daum earning himself the firstplace prize, followed by Kitimat’s Delany Ribeiro and Lou Ribeiro in second and third. About 45 racers from around the Northwest competed at the Houston Drag Races. While Prince Rupert’s racers didn’t find any success at the drag races, drivers will test their luck at the upcoming Hot August Nites Drag Races in Terrace this weekend.

Arson suspected Electronics recycling sparking interest in Kitkatla blaze BY QUINN BENDER

BY QUINN BENDER PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

The Prince Rupert RCMP are treating a fire at the Kitkatla Band Office last December as suspected arson, and are now asking the public for information. On Dec. 22, 2012, at 2:30 a.m. the Kitkatla fire department successfully extinguished - Const. Matt Ericson a fire at the Kitkatla Band Office. It was later determined by the Prince Rupert Fire Department that the fire had started on the exterior of the building and that an accelerant was used, making the fire suspicious in nature. “At this stage of the investigation very few leads have been generated,” RCMP Cst. Matt Ericson said. “We understand that this event occurred some time ago, however solving this case still remains a priority of the Coastal Unit, and community of Kitkatla. We are looking to the community of Prince Rupert and surrounding areas for any information that may assist in furthering this investigation.”

“...Solving this case still remains a priority.”

Rupertites are warming up to the idea of recycling their electric items. Since adopting the ElectroRecycle program for the district, the Prince Rupert recycling facility collected just 1.5 metric tonnes of material 2011, but the number jumped to 5.6 metric tonnes in 2012. So far this year that number has already been exceeded with 5.8 metric tonnes. Two ElectroRecycle ambassadors visited Prince Rupert last Wednesday to check in on the program, as part of a road tour to encourage more British Columbians to recycle their small household appliances and power tools. While the idea of recycling large electronics is catching on with the public, most people don’t realize smaller items, especially personal items like hairdryers, electric toothbrushes, curling irons and electric shavers, are also recyclable “Basically if it has a cord or a battery it can be recycled, no matter what size it is,” said SkeenaQueen Charlotte Regional District’s superintendent of waste management, Tim DesChamps. “That’s the kind

Legion opens military museum Museum tells history during conflicts

BY MARTINA PERRY PRINCE RUPERT / The Northern View

Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 27, Prince Rupert’s branch, has opened its Military Museum to the public, displaying memorabilia from historic battles throughout history. Prince Rupert’s legion has been collecting items since the group’s inception, but decided to honour the pieces in the branch’s new home. “A lot of [the memorabilia] came from people who have moved away, but their relatives, or friends were here during the war and felt the items should come back to Prince Rupert,” said Dave Walker, vice-president of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 27. “We decided a lot of this stuff deserved more credit ... We’re trying to set it up to be a bit more interesting for people to come in and look at.” Over the past year, volunteers have been working steady to complete renovations to the legion’s new home on Third Avenue. While there is still work to be done, the Legion’s military museum has begun to take shape. “A lot of hard work has gone into this building over the past year,” said Walker, adding the museum has been set up entirely by volunteers. Walker said people have been generous in

donating items from the First World War and the Second World War for the Legion to display in its museum, with a few pieces from the Korean War being given to the legion, as well. Walker said members have even been in discussion with people about donating items from the war in Afghanistan. Some pieces currently on display at the Military Museum includes two uniforms wore by soldiers during WWI, a one Scottish regiment uniform, four plugged rifles from WWI and WWII, some nearly 100 years old, various property of distinguished individuals in the military, old photographs and more. All the memorabilia - Dave Walker Prince Rupert’s branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has collected over the years isn’t on display just yet. Volunteers will continue to get everything out gradually, making sure items are properly researched and organized in the best possible way. Walker said the Military Museum collection is diversified, and will always be growing and changing. The Legion reopened at its new location in November 2012 after years of not having a permanent space. The Prince Rupert Legion’s Military Museum is open to the public from Thursday to Sunday each week from 1 to 4 p.m.

“A lot of hard work has gone into this building...”

Haida Gwaii will have to wait for The Fortune Wild Surfing adventure film shot on shores of Haida Gwaii debuts in Vancouver, no local viewing yet

BY QUINN BENDER HAIDA GWAII / The Northern View

The Fortune Wild, a documentary film shot on the shores of Haida Gwaii held its Vancouver premier today, July 31, but residents here may have to wait for the film’s web premier before they can see it. Last year, three surfers, Peter Devries, Reid and Arran Jackson, launched an expedition to some of Canada’s most remote beaches in Haida Gwaii in search of their own kind of riches. Surfing, camping and foraging for food, the three surfers stepped away from the modern world and into a quieter, more attuned and more selfsufficient existence. As the days pass, their trip becomes more than a picaresque adventure with rarely-surfed waves, as Haida elders give them permission to visit a hidden area of the Haida homeland. The small crew pitches camp to explore and experience a place where people

“... it’s truly unique and unlike anywhere I’ve ever been.” - Peter Devries have lived in partnership with nature for thousands of years. Later, they’re joined by fellow surfer Noah Cohen for some final sessions in the area’s clear and chilly waters. “There are a lot of good surf breaks around the world,” Devries said, “but it’s tough to find a place that compares to the British Columbia coast. The grandeur, the beauty and the culture — it’s truly unique and unlike anywhere I’ve ever been.”

The film’s director, Ben Gulliver said the documentary is a response to the economic development, resource extraction and transportation issues in the region. “The Fortune Wild is a journey into the heart of what matters most,” he said. “One-third documentary, one-third surf and adventure film and one-third storybook wander into the unknown, The Fortune Wild is a beautiful and slightly eccentric look at what makes the West Coast so priceless and so worthy to protect.” The film features interviews with Haida leaders and Haida Gwaii resident Severn Cullis-Suzuki, known most famously as the nine-year-old “girl who silenced the world for five minutes” with her speech at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Jenaro. The filmmakers hope to offer Haida Gwaii residents a screening of the film, but no plans have yet been set. The film will go live on the web late August.

Kitimat ocean program set for oil tankers By TOM FLETCHER VICTORIA / The Northern View

Jack Litrell / Special to The Northern View

Volunteers help move the Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole from the carving shed to a waiting truck to start its journey to Windy Bay. The pole will be raised on Aug. 15.

A little-noticed federal ocean monitoring program around Kitimat is the clearest signal yet that the federal government is preparing the region for crude oil tanker traffic, Green Party MLA Andrew Weaver says. Weaver was catching up on his scientific reading after the B.C. election when he stumbled on a line – “almost a throwaway” – in the April issue of Canadian Ocean Science Newsletter. “A major initiative in planning is the complementary measures project for the area surrounding Kitimat British Columbia to support planned oil traffic,” it says. Government scientists who developed the system in the Gulf of St. Lawrence say it is to help “search and rescue, oil spill response and to ensure safe and navigable waterways.” Weaver said the project goes well beyond research, and represents a major ongoing budget commitment by Environment Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to forecast ocean conditions for oil tanker traffic. “My conclusion is, come hell or high water, the intention of the feds right now is to ship bitumen to Asia through Kitimat,” Weaver said in an interview. “Whether it be through rail or Andrew Weaver through pipeline, it’s going to happen, and I don’t think that British Columbians are getting the whole picture here.” Environment Canada spokesman Mark Johnson issued a statement confirming the program was funded in the 2012 federal budget, under the government’s “responsible resource development” initiative. Its purpose is to “to improve the scientific understanding of diluted bitumen products and to improve operational capabilities to provide timely scientific assessment in the event of an oil spill. “The Government of Canada is increasing research into non-conventional petroleum products to fortify Canada’s marine prevention, preparedness and response capabilities. “In terms of ocean forecasting, Environment Canada Meteorological Service of Canada will bring specific contributions to the this overall goal in the provision of high-resolution surface winds forecasts along the complex waterways from Kitimat to Hecate Strait area, as winds play an important role as input to oil spill modelling assessment.” A federal assessment panel is preparing recommendations for the federal cabinet on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline project, which would deliver diluted bitumen from Alberta to the Kitimat port. Weaver said Ottawa’s apparent rush to export heavy crude increases the pollution risk on land and ocean, and also works against development of a petrochemical industry in Canada.
